Tucson Gem and Mineral Show 2013-Heart of the Crystal

IMG_5637

In honor of the Tucson Gem Mineral Show 2013, the Institute for the Shamanic Arts (I.S.A.) held a circle called Heart of the Crystal.

This circle was facilitated by Phillip Cash Cash and Elisabeth Black.

For this heart moving, deep, evocative, and amazing circle, participants were led through heart connecting activities.

They stacked stones while centering and achieving an inner balance.

In addition,  all were led on through a visualization to reach out for radiance and to channel the flow of the energetic vibration of crystals.

A spirit guided crystal grid was formed (see photo above).

Then all joined in humming, singing, and vocalizing while Phillip guided us and did shamanic drumming.

It was agreed that we felt we had done this sort of singing together in a past life.

The energy of this circle, our singing, and the crystals provided a breathtaking experience.

We thank Phillip for leading us through such a lovely portal and guiding us to the heart of the crystal.

Schedule for the 2012 Earth and Sky People Congress in Tucson, AZ

Welcome to the 2012 Earth and Sky People Congress in Tucson, AZ
Hosted by the Institute for the Shamanic Arts

 We think we know about the vast subject of ET/Star//Light/Interdimensional Beings and their past, present and future connection with Humanity.  It is time to expand our awareness and listen because messages are being sent to us now.  Humans have always used the drum and the shamanic journey to enhance communication between the ‘realms’ when needed.  Join us for this series of circles (one, a few, or all), and be prepared to participate. 

Each circle will offer the opportunity for participants to write a message or an account of their experience, thereby creating an ongoing archive of our respectful endeavors.  We are offering this series of circles during the eventful 2012 Tucson Gem and Mineral Show.  We feel that the energy of so many crystals, stones and minerals from around the Earth (as well as meteorites from Space), gathered in one place (Tucson, AZ), is a perfect conduit for traveling the realms and accessing benevolent knowledge.

Interested people do not need to have ‘shamanic’ experience to participate.  However an open mind and heart is essential.  If you feel something calling to you, and that there is something being asked of you, join us as we explore together.

Activating the 2012 Earth and Sky People Congress

“Listening to the wind holds value.
The trees want to share their knowledge.
We are not crazy when we hear voices.
We are bringing the strengths of the past into the present.
The future is in our hands.”

Quynn Red Mountain

“All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”

Arthur Schopenhauer

 

Unexplained, and Otherworldly, an experience in my 26th year called me to the path of the shamanic arts and forced me to look within.  I say ‘forced’ on purpose.  I would not have chosen to seek this world so young if I had not been made to pay attention.  While there is no scientific proof, I know that I was contacted by someone/something beyond this world and dimension.  It came in the night. My physical body was left with wounds. However, my spirit and mind were activated in a way I could not have imagined at the time. 

This was not my first ‘contact’.  A few days after this unexplained event, I experienced hypnosis for the first time to help me remember what happened.  Very quickly I found myself having sensations that were familiar.  Memories flooded me while trying to find answers.  Sudden feelings, taste, light and sounds were undeniable, all had visited me in dreams as a child.   They were so familiar, yet without words to describe them. 

After having the revelation that my recent physical contact had a connection with those who came to me many times as a child, all fear vanished and I knew that ‘it would all be ok and all will be revealed in time’.  This benevolent visitation set a  whole new life in motion, yet I decided to not talk about this part of my spiritual experience.  It all sounded to crazy.  However, “crazy” or not, in meditation they have since told me there was a time as a child they ‘contacted’ me, to protect me.  As an adult they ‘activated’ me.  Then they told me they “would be back”.

Now, in 2012, I have been told it is time to stop hiding. It is time to claim my connections, and honor the experiences of those around me.  I am not alone. We are not alone. It is time to ask to join the circle of friendly Star/Light/Dimensional Beings that are reaching out to us, whoever we may be, and wherever they may be.  Children, Elders, Men, Women, Straight, Two-Spirit, All Colors…we are all connected.  It is time to use our spiritually trained minds while we listen to the consistent beat of a drum and a rattle.  These simple sounds have been used for thousands of years to alter human brainwaves to open pathways to other realms of Reality.  We hear the drum beat and our Dreaming Mind awakens.  In this place, our heart opens, preparing us for sacred listening, complex understanding, and mutual cultural respect with any being that has our highest good.

http://www.transcendencies.com/2010/10/shamanic-journeys-and-ufo-encounters/ This article by Sue Jamieson and the late Dr. John E. Mack  (originally published by © Shamanism, Journal of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, Spring/Summer 2003, Vol. 16, No. 1.) describes similarities and differences between an experience with the shamanic journey, and one of Star People ‘contact’. They also share information from varies cultures and tribes about their own Star People connections.  They writeMany indigenous shamans and medicine people, such as Ipu and Cleicha Peixoto, Sequoyah Trueblood, Credo Mutwa, Dhyani Ywahoo, Godfrey Chips, Standing Elk, and Wallace Black Elk, openly acknowledge UFO encounters as part of their reality and speak easily of myths and legends telling of peoples that come from the sky or the stars. According to Osage legends, some Osage lived in the sky, way beyond the Earth.3 The Cherokee, or as they call themselves, Tsalagi, trace their origins to the star group known as the Pleiades, or Seven Dancers,4 as do the Lakota/Dakota/Nakota peoples. The Colombian Amazon Desana say that in the beginning of time, their ancestors arrived on the Earth in canoes from the sky.5 The name of a small tribe in Brazil, Uru-e-Wau-Wau, means literally “people from the stars.”6 “Extraterrestrial” landings and interactions are commonly spoken of by these peoples. 7 According to African lore, “star people” have come from the heavens in “magic sky boats” for thousands of years. The great Zulu warrior king, Shaka, was said to have been “kidnapped” by the mantindane (the “gray beings”).8

Join with those who have had ‘contact’ with benevolent Star People/Dimensional Beings, and those who represent the best of Humanity, for the 2012 Earth and Sky People Congress in Tucson, AZ.  The Institute for the Shamanic Arts will host such gatherings as 2012 progresses.   As a group we will create a sacred circle and, while listening to the shamanic drumbeat, we will activate our crystalline nature to prepare for messages from wise guides of other realms. Emotional Safety and Intercultural/dimensional Ethics are of high priority.

Please ask yourself if you are called to participate. If called, please bring your open heart and uncluttered mind.  Whether you have experienced a ‘shamanic journey’ before, we need people in this circle who listen to the Realms, and who are comfortable with their own ‘quiet mind’. This gathering will be guided by Quynn Red Mountain and Elisabeth Black.   Spirit Guided Donations will be accepted to help Earth Web Media continue its programs and services.

“A thing does not therefore cease to be true because it is not accepted by many.”
Benedict Spinoza

The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show 2012

Every February, Tucson hosts The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show.

About 50,000 visitors flock to Tucson to barter, collect priceless crystals, buy stock for their own enterprises, purchase delights, and exhibit gems and minerals from all over the world.

We are surrounded by the high vibrational energies of thousands upon thousands of crystals.

These are crystal beings that are ready and willing to guide us in raising our consciousness, sending and receiving magical messages,  contacting extraterrestrial intelligence, and transmitting love, peace, balance, understanding, protection, and self-empowerment.

The year 2012 resonates with each of us in a unique and visionary way.

The Institute of Shamanic Arts (I.S.A.) recognizes our star connections with all benevolent beings and extends to you the opportunity to receive messages being offered from other realms.

We employ the use of the drum beat to journey within and we work closely with guides (including crystal beings) to expand our understanding and experience non-ordinary reality.

I.S.A. and its talented facilitators will have many special community offerings for the month of February and throughout the year so that we can all interact with the guidance and connections that unfold this year.

For more information about our offerings please see our Meet-up site at:
