Coaching Contemporary Mystics In the Making!

“There is an invitation to do things differently than before; an invitation to something deeper.

 Invite yourself to the last unexplored wilderness which is the body,

Knowing it is the site of profound wisdom for us and the world.

Hear the whispered call to dwell on the wild edges within yourself for awhile.

Deepen into the undoing of your expectations of things;

Surrender a little further into the unexpected and the unknown;

Open to the surprises of the mysteries all around you

and the messages larger than anything you have heard before.”

(Christine Valters Paintner)

PinealGland woman Being  a woman of a certain age (in my 60th decade, that is) coming out boldly and with purpose becomes the primary task for those of us who choose to live in the skin of our essential nature.

Is this not what many of us want? Is this not what keeps us peeling away at the false skins so that we become what the Italians call senza trucco, women without makeup?

If it is, then the mystic is not far behind, goosing us towards our bare-assed selves! (This goosing has been happening to me for some time now and the bare-assed part has finally arrived!)

I am embarking on the journey of sharing with you “all things mystic” in the hopes of  reminding you that you are “tethered” to something so much greater than the every day walkabout you do in life as a gender, a profession, a nationality or even as a human species!

THUS, I have pared down my coaching practice and now willingly and joyfully coach mystics and mystics in the making.

So, how did this come about?

It started with a sentence that floated to the top of a recent dream.   I heard:  “We’ll leave the light on for you.”

Well, first I laughed  because I’m sure you recognize where this comes from; Motel 6’s comforting words to the weary road traveler in search of a bed for the night.

Here’s where I went in my efforts to unravel the dream message….

The mystic is all about light, an avid seeker of the light that imbues all things,  yearning to connect deeply with illumination/en-light-enment

We ourselves are made of light and intriguingly we carry a pea-shaped gland in our head called the pineal gland which resides deep within and between the hemispheres of the brain.

It is all about light.  The gland is activated by light and it controls the various biorhythms of the body, sleep and wake cycles, and seasonal light changes dancing with our circadian rhythms!

BUT…on a deeper less obvious level, the pineal gland is the connection between the physical and the spiritual, the seen and unseen! 

It secretes dimethyltryptamine, DMT,  the so-called spirit molecule which evokes dreams, near-death experiences, meditation, and visions.  Amazingly, tiny pieces of crystal (calcite) within the gland generate electrical currents and when exposed to an electromagnetic field such as the humungous EMF of the earth, the gland vibrates!

It is as if each of us has an inner porch light that continuously burns, vibrates, and radiates.  “We’ll leave the light on for you” is indeed a cosmic message!

The mystic knows that each day has an every day meaning attached to its experience, and then….. there are deeper levels to that experience.

The everyday self sees the pineal gland as a physiological organ for a physical purpose. 

The mystic sees its light-filled cosmic or spiritual purpose and seeks to connect with these higher frequencies of light deriving great delight from knowing there is more going on here than we can possibly understand or perhaps imagine!

OK, this is foundational stuff for understanding the deep hunger you may feel  for ” the more” beyond every day experience.

This is where I hope to engage you as a companion for the journey of living in a new skin for these times, the skin of your own mystical nature.

I start here with myself and with you!

Your mission if you choose to accept it is to…  imagine, visualize and hold your focus on the porch light in your brain!  Visualize going behind your eyes and IN to the region of 3rd eye located  mid- forehead)– then visualize also going in from the top of your skull (where the baby’s soft spot is) straight down and allow the two points to meet  at the circle (black) below–then imagine this circle not as black but illuminated with a constant light.  Use the labyrinthine image (below and left) that offers the quality of that illumination to help you strengthen the visualization.

This is your point of intimacy, your point of deep belonging.  Your light is “sourced” from “the” LIGHT reminding you that you are of infinite value to the entire womb of creation which says to you in every moment:

  “We have left the light on for you!”
