Tale of the Manifested Ring

Someone's great design ...
Many years ago, when I was learning to visualize, I read a story in The True and Invisible Rosicrucian Order, by Paul Foster Case, of a woman who visualized a hat, and later found the identical hat, which did not resemble any on sale at that time. He said, "You imagine it, and immediately many hands begin assembling it" (I am paraphrasing). 

I decided then and there to visualize a silver ring with an oval cabochon-cut lapis stone. I had a hard time imagining the setting, though. Today I would picture a simple braid or twisted setting, but at that moment I was too impatient to look at settings (no internet, in The Bad Old Days), so I stayed with my original conception. I pictured it as fitting perfectly, being affordable, and imagined it a couple of times a day, as prescribed in the book, for a few weeks. Then I forgot all about it. 

Perhaps a month later, I was invited to attend the Houston Gem Show. I strolled around looking at many lovely handmade jewelry pieces, loose stones, crystals and so on. Then across a very wide aisle (maybe 30 feet), I was drawn to a bank of many colored sparkly rings, set in cheap gold. That sort of jewelry is not my style, but I felt I had to go over and look. Lo and behold, in the middle of one of the rows of sparklies was a silver ring with an oval cabochon-cut lapis! The setting was clumsy, just like my visualization, and it fit perfectly. It cost $26, and I had $30. That left just enough for a lunch taco and a drink! 

The point is that manifesting something you can picture is simple. The deciding part is hard! Also, I have found over the years, that when I cannot picture what I want, or if the image wobbles and fades, it is not meant to be.

Seven Minutes a Day!

Excerpt from "Mirror, Mirror, the Book by Gayelord Hauser

Give Yourself Seven Minutes A Day

Now here is some more cheerful news about exercise: it does not have to be a long, complicated, strenuous routine. All the women - and men, too - who have told me how the successfully made exercise a part of their lives have confirmed my own experience. A few well-chosen, basic, simple exercises make the best routine. they can be gone through in a few minutes as part of the getting up, bathing and dressing ritual that begins your day. I have studied countless exercise routines, American, European and Oriental, for every country has its favorites. The best ones have been developed out of natural body movements and do not demand a contortionist's or an acrobat's abilities. 

 Let me give you here my seven basic exercises. You can do them well and thoroughly in no more than seven minutes of your day, and they will keep you trim and fit all your life. Remember, we not only exercise to keep slim; we exercise because it helps us to feel so much better and it keeps our "instrument" in tune: 

Stretch: Rise up on your toes, arms up, with your hands try to touch the ceiling. Drop arms. Relax. Do ten times. 

Bend: Down, down, from the waist, hands reaching for the floor. Stretch, stretch, until you can touch the floor with the palms of your hands. the best vitalizing and backache exercise. Do ten times. 

Torso Stretch and Twist: With arms outstretched to the sides, reach to the left, to the right; twist at the waist and reach backward to the left and to the right. A wonderful and easy twist for keeping waistlines. Back and forth. Do ten times. 

Hip Roll: With hands on hips, rotate the middle, holding shoulders still, first to the left, then to the right. Do ten times slowly in each direction. Bicycle:

For beautiful legs, lie on the floor on your back, legs up, pedal slowly and rhythmically. The more you breathe the better it feels. Do for two minutes and relax.

Tummy Lift: Pull your abdominal muscles in, hard, harder. Hold tight for about 30 seconds or until muscles start to quiver, then relax. Do just once a day, but regularly. 

Shoulder Shrug: Important for neck, face and scalp. Lift the shoulders to the ears and hold for ten seconds. Relax a repeat ten times. 

Now shake yourself all over, take a few breaths, and off to your shower or tub. You have done your muscle work for the day. Any other exercise, sport or physical work you do will be so much gravy. Try and make these easy and lazy twists a daily habit.

Deadly Force?

The whole day, I was uneasy, and last night I was in Rodeo with Salazar Jack, his Grandma Thetan, his father Adam Grayson, his old friend Champie Jack, Ilianexsi Sojourner, and Osprey Therian working to set up an experiment to return the Stones to their former capacity as communicators / time portals (at least I think that was their function, but I am technologically challenged at best). 

Today I revisited the site of the experiment, and I was horrified to find everything in disarray.

Some time after I left, apparently something went awry, because although the remaining stone is still standing, glowing faintly and humming, the devices we set up have been knocked down and all the equipment seems to have been blown apart by some force! I went over to Seaside Village in Cowell, and it is simply GONE! I can only assume that it somehow went into seam in the time/space continuum, or it was totally vaporized by the force. I have not heard from any of the other experimenters since last night. I hope they are doing all right.

The Forest of Kahruvel Hums

A Time Machine?
I wandered over to Seaside Village in Cowell (Second Life, that is) today, and found this wonderful device in the woods nearby. It did not accept me as a passenger, so I just admired the craftsmanship and continued on my way. I felt strange thrills up my spine as I walked, who knows why. Sometimes the Forest can harbor strange beings and it seems to have a time/space continuum warp of some kind. Occasionally buildings collapse and stairways crumble for no apparent reason. Maybe the grid quakes are stirring again. I ended up at Grandma Thetan's house (Salazar's grandmother lives in the Forest), where I heard a strange humming sound. Maybe Salazar is experimenting again.
