Transmutation News – May 2000

I have found one of the keys to the success of our work with the transmutation of the water has been merging with the water either before or as we worked.

In previous web pages I have written that I feel that much of the illness we suffer today is a direct result of how we have become separated from nature. The elements earth, water, air, and fire are not only around us, but we are made up of these elements too. I have found it to be beneficial to bring into your spiritual practice a way of merging with the elements. This practice is not to try to speak to or communicate with an element, although this practice is important too, rather it is learning by becoming and being the element you are working with.

If you are trained in the practice of shamanic journeying, you would journey with the intention to merge with an element. If you are not trained in this spiritual practice you would want to do a meditation with the same intention. I would suggest putting on some music which is relaxing to you. As you listen to the music make sure that you are breathing, allowing yourself to move into a deep meditative state. When you feel that you are in a deep state, hold an intention that you want to experience a particular element by becoming it.

This month I suggest that you work with the element of earth. As we are in the season of spring the earth is teaming with life. As you become the earth you will experience the frost of winter being dissolved creating an incredible vitality that will amaze you as you experience it. You might choose to merge with the soil in your garden or where you live, or the earth of a desert, tropical beach, or rain forest. Use your imagination. Feel how the earth is being fed by the sun and the moisture and the movement of life in this season.

We all know that the earth is alive. And as you feel it’s life force you will experience this concept on a much deeper level.

For the month of May just concentrate on learning about the life force of earth by merging with it. Next month I will lead you through the next element to work with.

Our transmutation group performed our next experiment with water. We wanted to try working long distance where this time all the group members were in different locations. Once again we found that we were able to change the pH in a similar way as when a group worked together long distance. We have not been able to change the water as significantly long distance as when the group has been working in the same room with the water. But it did change. Obviously more work needs to be done.

I feel perfecting our long distance technique is important as when we move into working with nuclear waste we would want to work long distance for obvious reasons.

I scheduled two workshops on transmutation this fall, which filled immediately. I will be scheduling more workshops for 2001. As soon as I come up with some dates I will let you know.

Transmutation News – April 2000

Happy spring! I hope you will take some time and revel in the changes that nature is delighting us with. Spring is a great time to plant the seeds we wish to come to fruition this summer.

In February I was teaching a two week intensive workshop on shamanic methods in Portland, Oregon through the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. There were seventy five people in the workshop, and I felt it was a perfect opportunity to take the experimentation with polluted water one step further.

Vic, the physicist we have been consulting with, made up a batch of water with ammonium hydroxide in Colorado. He made up the water two hours before our group intended on working with it. He kept testing the pH of the water to see if the pH would change on its own. It did not.

Our group spent the day preparing for the work. We did journeys to merge with water. We also did a journey to experience the process of dismemberment/transfiguration as I describe in my new book to embody divine forces which could transmute the water.

When our session began in the evening we used drumming, rattling, dancing and singing to help us change our state of consciousness. We proceeded with toning to provide the space where we could embody the divine and the helping spirits. Some people just prayed for divine intervention but most of the group worked with embodying a spiritual force.

Due to the time difference in Colorado, we only had a short time to work. We knew the address of the water, but no one, including myself had ever been to the location. This was the next step in our experimentation process. Could change happen to the water, without us having any knowledge about the location except an address? We were able to change the pH from 11 to 10 in our short period of working, which from a scientific view would be considered unexplainable.

At some point I plan on moving our experimentation to the next level, working on bodies of water versus bowls of water and also extending our work to include other elements. The point of my new book Let There Be Light is that we can reverse all environmental pollution through the use of spiritual methods. But first it is important to see what works in a controlled situation and then we will be ready for the next step.

Last month, on this web page, I posted a formula I have developed for transmutation to occur. I hope you had some time to work with this. It is important for me to stress that what is crucial is not trying to change the pollution in the environment without changing ourselves first. Finding harmony inside of ourselves will naturally effect our outer world without trying to force a change to occur. Therefore, the key is bringing spiritual practices into your life twenty four hours a day, three hundred sixty five days a year. You will not experience harmony outside of yourself until you have a deep sense of harmony inside. I know I keep repeating this point, but it is the key to changing the world we live in.

Pollution signifies energy that is stuck as vital energy is always moving. During this powerful season of the year put out a strong intention that you wish your energy to be aligned with the healthy moving vibration of the earth and all the elements. Ask that the veils between the worlds be lifted so you can align with the pure unpolluted vibration of the earth. State your intention at the beginning of each day. Notice if this brings more harmony into your life.

Review the formula I wrote about last month and keep journeying and meditating on it. Come up with some spiritual practices that you can work with which will help you embody this formula.

Transmutation News – March 2000

Last month I wrote about the experiment we did with transmuting chemically polluted water in Santa Fe. We went one step further with this work, and we tried to replicate our results working long distance. I was to make up a batch of water with ammonium hydroxide at a certain hour, Diana, Gail, and Kate would journey and then perform a ceremony to embody the divine to change the PH of tile water. I had told them where in my house I was going to place the bowl of water. About a minute before I was to make up the water an idea came to make up two bowls of water and place one bowl in a room where Diana, Gail, and Kate would have no knowledge of this water.
I was concerned about not focusing on the water while they were doing their work. The universe provided help with this. As soon as I placed the bowl of water in my house, my phone rang. The call coming in was a business call which demanded my full attention. The call lasted as long as the ceremony in Colorado was taking place.
The results we got were not as dramatic as the results when we worked at my house together, but we did get good results. The PH went from 11 to a 9.5 in the bowl of water placed in my kitchen. The fascinating piece is that the PH in the bowl that no one knew existed except me, showed no change. So this was quite interesting.
This month we will continue our experimentation with the long distance work and we will switch the process where the water is made up in Colorado, and I will work with a group to attempt to transmute it.
In our work so far we found singing to be essential to keeping the focus of our intention as well as helping us remain in a state of union with divine forces. We each used our shamamic power songs to prepare ourselves for getting into an altered state and then we used to toning to keep us in a state of union.

I wanted to add a little more information about ammonium hydroxide as I was informed that I have not given all the correct information in last month’s web page. Ammonium hydroxide does not come from just decaying vegetable matter. It is also a byproduct of human or animal wastes. This is a very common contaminant that makes soil very alkaline arid water undrinkable. It has a distinctive odor and foul taste, so that creatures will naturally not drink it. It does have the capability to break down cell walls in the digestive tract, but the odds of some one drinking a high enough concentration are low. The key here is that the water is no longer usable when the ammonium is present.
Ammonium hydroxide makes fatty acids more soluble in water. This can make other pollutants such as petroleum products water soluble. This process increases the danger of petroleum in the environment by enabling it to spread faster. Therefore, ammonium hydroxide is a contaminate in itself and also harmful in terms of its affect on some other contaminants.
The paper strips we used are ph test strips that are much more sensitive than litmus paper.

After reading stories of the miracle of transmutation in the Bible, the Kabalah, and those authored by Egyptians, Taoists, Yogis, alchemists, shamans, and modern—day mystics, I found the elements they all shared. The following formula naturally evolved: intention + love + harmony + union + focus + concentration + imagination = transmutation. This formula is a hologram whose components all work together, and are inseparable from the whole.
You can begin meditating or journeying on this formula and notice if you are inspired in your work and life by it.

Transmutation News – February 2000

On January 8 and 9, Diana, Gall, and Kate arrived at my house for our fist weekend experiment with transmutation. Woods, my husband who teaches meditation and yoga joined us. The work we did that weekend proved to be quite a learning experience for us all.

As I reported on last month’s web page, my helping spirits advised that I stick to working with chemical pollution in my experimentation with transmutation of polluted water. The reason I chose to work with water is that from my research I learned that it is easy to work with. I had also learned in journeys that water is a reflector and will reflect back the state of people around it. So although Let There Be Light addresses reversing all environmental pollution through the use of spiritual methods, I decided to start with the transmutation of water before moving onto other elements.

I consulted with the Good Water Company in Santa Fe which tests water. They had suggested that I work with water with gasoline in it as the change in hydrocarbons would be easy to test for. Before our weekend I went to Good Water where we made a control batch of 300 ml of water to 5 ml of gasoline. I took the rest of the gasoline and water I had brought to Good Water home to work with.

Diana’s husband is an astrophysicist. He made us up a bottle of deionized water (purified water with no contaminants in it) as well as a bottle of anirnonium hydroxide. Ammonium hydroxide is a common pollutant in water and causes cell walls to break down and dissolve, making it quite dangerous for animals and humans to drink.

The benefit for us to work with aninionium hydroxide was that it is a common and dangerous pollutant, but yet we could test our results as we worked. We didn’t need to send the water we worked on to a lab as we had to with the water with gasoline. We could use litmus paper to test our results as ammonium hydroxide is extremely basic.

The other substance that we worked with was quinine. When you put quinine water (tonic water) in a dark mug and shine a light on it, you would see that it was blue. Quinine is not harmful, but as we could see the change in color as we worked, it was used also.

We spent the day Saturday and Sunday journeying to prepare for the ceremonies performed both nights. Woods taught us simple yoga postures and breathing techniques that cleared us out before we journeyed. We all agreed that the combination of the two methods was quite extraordinaiy. Oxygenating the body before journeying allowed us to go to very deep places very quickly.

The journeys we did came from my new book. The two ceremonies performed used two different methods that I discuss in the book. Briefly, one was asking for divine intervention where we called in the helping spirits and asked them to transmute and heal the water. The other, which I emphasize as the way I suggest working, was for each of us to embody the divine or our helping spirits and also bring forth the divinity of the water itself. We found that singing and toning was a potent way to remain in a complete state of union with the helping forces we worked with. I will share more about this next month.

The reason that I suggest working with embodying the divine and/or the helping spirits one works with is that when you do this you change. You are not the same person once you have had union with the divine or your helping spirits. Let There Be Light, is really a modern day book of alchemy. By achieving harmony within, we will experience harmony without. It’s not what we do in the world that makes transmutation successful, it is who we become.

By working with divine intervention and asking the spirits to do the work, I did not change. Every time I have worked with becoming in union with the divine or my own helping spirits by enibodying them, I have evolved in a good way. To be touched by the sacred is life changing.

Now onto the results of the work. Most of the time spent was in the preparation for the work. The most important aspects of doing any kind of transmutation work is creating sacred space and a strong community. The rest follows on its own. The PH of the water with ammonium hydroxide on Saturday night was 11.5 which is dangerous to drink. After our work, it went down to 9 which is within safe drinking standards.

On Sunday night we started with a PH of 12 and again the PH went down to 9 on the next testing. I would say on both nights we tested the difference in the PH in about 15—20 minutes of the actual healing work. meaning that the change happened in a very short period of time. We will not have the results of the water with gasoline for another few weeks. I am not sure if we were able to change the gasoline in the water. But in my journeys, and with Woods testing with kinesiology we feel that we changed the water so that the gasoline was not harmful to it. I was shown in my journey that the water was actually beaming. Woods with his testing found that the field of the water was quite large and strong. This brought up an interesting issue. There are many mystics around the world who are not traumatized by physical events. For example, Jack Schwarz has had sail needles placed into his body without suffering from any pain or physiological Trauma. He says that he does this by changing his state of consciousness so that he is not Jack Schwarz but one with Source.

We did do a lot of work preparing the water to make the water “holy” or “divine” before adding the pollutants. But at this point, there is no scientific way to test for the life force of water. So there is no way to scientifically prove that the water was in no way affected by the pollutants we added.

We only worked with the quinine on Sunday night, and through visual methods we could see less blue in the water before and after we worked. Again, quinine is not a pollutant so we not as focused on this as a problem. We were more curious to see what changes would occur.

With all the preparation work we did each day we directly experienced that water is a living being. In all shamanic traditions, it is said that everything is alive. But to have such an intimate experience with the healing of water and to experience in such a deep way it’s own “beingness”, I will never drink water or use water in the same way. consciousness and the consciousness of others present this weekend know in a cellular way that we are working in partnership with a beautiful, sacred living being. And I really got that everytime we dump pollutants into the water, on the earth, in the air, in the firere we are actually killing living beings.

There is more I would like to share about what we all learned and directions to go. So the next part will appear next month. And I just want to say that this was just a first experiment of many to come. I plan to devote my life in this direction.

The conflict I have with writing about the success in working with the water is I fear that people will become focused on just trying to transmute water or other elements without doing the necessary work to change oneself first. As afl alchemists knew the work within was what produced the results.

I have just finished the first edit of Let There Be Light. It will be out next Jan/Feb. It sounds like a long time away, but time passes rather quickly these days.

There is a retreat center in N. New Mexico that has extraordinary land. I am trying to find a weekend this summer where Woods and I can do our first workshop on transmutation where we will work in a siniiliar way to the work we did in January. We are having some problems finding free dates at Ocamora, but we are working on it. Hopefully, I will have dates to report next month.

Here’s a thought to ponder on from my book Welcome Home:Following Your Soul’s Journey Home:

“We can learn how to transform the energy behind our thoughts.
Can similiar principles be used to transmute pollution and toxins in our environment?”

Transmutation News – January 2000

On January 8 and 9, a small group who has been reading and working on the material in Let There Be Light: Healing Through Transmutation (this is the tentative title of my new book as I have been writing it) will gather in Santa Fe. At this time we will attempt to transmute water that has been tested by a lab in Santa Fe and is known to be polluted. Using spiritual methods we will try to reverse the pollution. The water will once again be tested. My helping spirits have advised me to work with chemical pollution as that is what is causing so much illness. The plan at this point is to put things like gasoline, oil, and arsenic in water we are trying are to transmute. I will keep you posted on what happens.
I am very excited about this work and plan to focus my energy on continuing experimentation in this vein.

We are making a new transition into the next century. I am sure that you are feeling changes in your life and around you. As with all transitions, some chaos is bound to occur, In Welcome Home I share the following advice for times of great change:
Stay focused
Stay positive
Stay centered
To move into the work of transmutation, you must develop a practice which will help you follow the above advice. You can only create healing in the environment when you can stay focused, optimistic, and centered.

May you find harmony, peace, and joy in your life as you celebrate the beginning of a new century. Happy 2000!
