This past weekend I had the opportunity to drive over to SE Utah with some friends to do a botany field trip. We were looking at a very unusual plant that is only located on the Cedar Mesa formation. It's common name is Mountain Lilac.
The route took us directly west of Cortez, and through the sleepy town of Bluff, Utah. The 2.5 hour drive culminated in a steep switchback road up the side of the mesa, past a place called Moki Dugway to a lookout called Muley Point. Since we had climbed up over 1000 feet, the views that we experienced when we got out of the car were breathtaking to say the least!
This brings me to Tom Kenyon. He is a sound healer who not only sends out the occasional newsletter, but also offers a free mp3 sound track to go with each newsletter’s recommended meditation exercise. As time has gone on, his communications have gotten fewer and farther between, but the last several have been extremely significant and “meaty” in content. I am specifically referring to the 11/12/17 e-mail entitled “Spatial Cognizance” and the most recent one from 4/3/18 entitled “The Multiverse Sound Meditation”. Both the newsletters and the free accompanying mp3 sound meditation downloads can be gotten at www.tomkenyon.com/hathors-archives.
In these articles, Tom is teaching a meditation method by which we can connect to our spatial cognizance, expand that awareness, and thus become aware of who we are on a grand scale as a part of the multiverse. This may serve to be our salvation as we traverse further into the chaos that our world is experiencing.
The process involves generating the feelings of gratitude and appreciation, then traveling to or imaging that you are in a very large space, and generating the feeling that you are in that space. The process goes on from there with the support of Tom’s amazing sound tracks. My explanation can't do it justice, so check it out for yourself.
Getting back to the weekend trip, upon getting to the top of Cedar Mesa, we could see for many miles out from our location, including Navajo Mountain and Monument Valley to the west, all of the mountains in the northeast corner of Arizona, and our local mountains in SW Colorado. It was pretty exciting, even more so than the rare plant that we had come to find! So when I do the Multiverse Sound Meditation, I frequently picture myself and also feel with gratitude and appreciation that I am in one of these great local spots where I can see for miles and miles. Then I expand my consciousness into that space and then out as far out as I can, and eventually out into the multiverse. At that point, I do my best to totally embody that feeling and hang onto it. Of course, this is an encapsulated version of what Tom has written, so again, I recommend that you read his articles and try it for yourself.
Here are some of the photos from our amazing trip to Cedar Mesa.
