I feel like I just completed a graduate level course in consciousness studies after having listened to a 1 hour interview with Robert Gilbert. I was introduced to the work of Robert Gilbert probably about 6 years ago after attending a retreat in Mount Shasta hosted by Gene Ang. I recently was reintroduced when I started watching the series on GAIA TV on Sacred Geometry. It is an amazing series, with a depth of information followed by practices to help develop the energy body. I highly recommend it.
As for the interview, I can't wait to watch it again. It is such a reminder about what this life is all about. He talks about each of us being on our own journey of remembering who we are. He talks about how we enter into this world of separation out of unity, and need to remember that truth. He speaks of the two core values of humanity's existence as Love and Freedom.
How do we find our way out of this mire of hatred, self-destruction, selfishness and greed and find our way back to Love and Freedom?
We must develop our consciousness and our spiritual energy body in order to live fully as who we are as spirit. The work of building our energy body (which is connected to our physical being) is something I personally need to work on. As of late we have not been hosting any courses, but with this, I feel a new and renewed desire to open the space to begin again.
I am not sure when I really became fascinated with numbers, but they seem to be coming up a lot for me lately. Very often, those who have had OBEs or NDEs are presented with knowledge of sacred geometry and numerology. People who would call numerology a hack or pseudoscience fail to realize that numbers are inherent in nature. Numbers are the immutable language of the Universe.
Ever since reading Cosmic Trigger in college, I have loved the number 23. The 23 pairs of chromosomes that make up human DNA. All the greatest sports stars have the number 23! Think Michael Jordan <3 And, of course, not to be forgotten, the obsession over the number by the twisted mind of William S. Burroughs, author of Naked Lunch.
So now we enter 2023 and it is not surprising that I am feeling more connected to the spiritual work needed on the planet more than ever. According to Jennifer McLean, this is the year of the Lightworker! I can not wait.
Jennifer McLean has been an important part of my own healing journey. She came out of the business world and entered the realm of spirituality and parapsychology years ago. She hosts space for healer, psychics and other gifted individuals to share their light. Every year she hosts Predictions Week at the start of the new year.
Dr. Robert Pease is one of her favorites. He gives the numerological forecast for this year.
From his intro:
Numerology for 2023… it's an extraordinary year.
7 year… 2+0+2+3=7 permeates the year.
Personal number is your month+day+2023 = personal year.
In Pythagorean 7 is the ultimate number… the philosopher stone, merlin magician energy… the deeper of what is under our standing. It is about digging deeper but not in a burdensome way. It’s a quest year. Time to set an intention for the adventure we desire. It is ultimately a journey year.
The themes are: truth, wisdom, inquisitiveness, and the desire to learn and grow. It is a time of study ad exchange of ideas. Expect clearer, transparent conversations.
2023 is a year of introspection introverts will love this year. Extraverts can reflect the inner out through the moment. You can leverage what you learned from the past. We will gain more present awareness to guide us in new thoughts in our daily life.
7 = practical creativity and putting the pieces together. Now we can take what we’ve experienced and know what to do with it. Put the tapestry together and see, “Ah ha, that’s why.” Take the “scratching head moments” and now understand what they are about.
7 will ask you to slow down more and gain a footing in your lives, finding a new rhythm. We can now slow down and bit and breathe.
White rabbit year under Chinese numerology. Gain a deeper perspective. An opportunity to gain new ways of thinking and acting. Polishing the edges buff it up.
Take the what’s and whys and now apply them. More developed. The illusion of the maze will be revealed in a larger view and not cramped in, isolated, alienated, and alone. Freer movement into divine blessings.
7 is also the “god number,” tapping into the divine is available to us this year.
If you would like to see what her lineup of psychics has to say for our upcoming year you can check it out here.
Buddhism and Christianity represent the head and the heart of spiritual enlightenment. These two beautiful spiritual paths do not conflict, rather they support the growth of individuals in complimentary ways.
Buddhism is a mental path to enlightenment. It is one that is effective for intellectuals since it works with one's mental faculties.
Christianity is a heart centered path. It is focused on love and unity. It is most effective for the empath and highly emotionally sensitive type.
Ultimately the goal of each will bring the practitioner closer to the image of God. Through the 8 fold path of Buddhism, I become less destructive in my thoughts, words, and actions. I learn to see things without the biases and judgements of my social conditioning. I walk a path of goodness and righteousness. Through Buddha consciousness I see accurately the connection of all things. I become one with everything.
Through the Christian path, I strive to become more Christ-like. I learn to love and see my brother as myself. I lean towards goodness and righteousness, and learn the true meaning of forgiveness. Compassion, love and forgiveness are my creed. Through Christ consciousness I see the presence of God in all things. I see myself as a part of this oneness.
Both of these paths complement one another. The Buddhist path can benefit from the warmth of love felt on the Christian path, and the Christian path can benefit from the effortful removal of all negative conditioning provided by the 8-fold path.
Christian arrogance is one of the most destructive forces in our churches today. Christians often fail to follow the true teachings of Jesus when they begin to see themselves as superior to other religious paths. Instead of loving their brother as the Christian teachings speak of, they condemn them to hell. This is why so many spiritual seekers no longer resonate with the path of Christianity. It has been perverted by the judgmental arrogance of so many of those who would proclaim it to be theirs and theirs alone.
Christ consciousness is everyone's birthright. The awakening of the mind, body and spirit is the goal of humanity. It is our goal to work together to uplift and encourage each of our brothers and sisters to discover their light within and shine it out into the world.
So no matter what your religious beliefs may be, remember to see within each other the truth of God's eternal light, love and goodness. Seek to find this within yourself, and encourage others to do the same.

We will set intentions
If anyone has followed our New Year's programming we have offered up the opportunity to take advantage of the energy of the new year through the creating of a 30 day challenge (or more). Personally, I find the power of the new irrepressible. To harness this energy to build towards something seems obvious.
Today is a powerful date 11-11-22. It seems to be beaconing to take on a new challenge. This year has been hard for the Community House Network. It was necessary for financial reasons to let go of our paid staff and move towards an entirely volunteer organizational structure. Even with our staff, we have yet to create the real and meaningful connections with our neighbors that will help us become what we intend to be.
One question is why? Starting a community project in the middle of Covid didn't help, but also, in our community, like many around us, trust is hard to come by. So we are working on it, one family at a time.
In the meantime, why not increase our online presence. It is so much easier for people to enter into the online space than the 3-D. So, that is the goal and that is the challenge. Through our Consciousness Explorations programming we have created quite a bit of content already. The challenge is to get this content available to our local and online community. To let people join the conversation, online, and then perhaps eventually in person.
Challenge: Post one new video a day for the next 100 days.
Since I have not posted much, and have not done much (almost none) video editing, this challenge will also represent a new learning experience. Learning is natural. It takes focus of our interest towards something, continued curiosity and effort, exploration and discovery. Learning is fun! When we reach those new levels of competency and understanding we get a natural dopamine boost!
So why not take on your own new challenge? Ask yourself what you want to learn? What do you want to improve on? What do you want to share with the world, or just for you alone?
And watch as we take the steps to share what we have been doing over the last year, while learning how to use video editing software and youtube.
Check out our new youtube channel - Consciousness Explorations - or check it out sometime soon, since today there won't be much to see.
You know the old saying GIGO (Garbage In Garbage Out), well it is true for our conscious mind as well. When we fill up on junk food we are sluggish and muddled in our thoughts.
I have long ago stopped watching the news. Not that I don't care about what is going on in the world, but the mainstream media does not portray an understanding that will bring us together. The mainstream media typically fosters divisiveness, and fear. Both of these create a state of consciousness that further separates us.
If one of the most significant goals for humanity is to recognize our interconnected oneness, then the mainstream media is actually an incredibly destructive force in the evolution of our consciousness.
And what about social media, or other sources of information?
I haven't been on Facebook in about 15 years, until just recently when I was nudged back into the scene out of the need to make the activities at the Community House Network more public. I don't typically spend much time on it, partly because I don't know how to use it.
However, I am what you might call a "Youtube junkie". I can find myself getting lost in videos on Youtube, and although I start off with meditation and consciousness uplifting content, I often find myself watching murder podcasts, or even just those mind-numbing videos of shorts of cooking or crafts. Those time wasters that hold my attention like glue. Youtube has obviously recognized the power of these shorts and now has a feature where very shorts 30 second to 1 minute videos pop-up and start moving on your screen. A highlight of a full video and very attention grabbing.
All of these things are vying for my attention, and I have to remember my consciousness is more precious than gold. What do I really want to spend it on? More importantly, what do I want to bring into my field of consciousness?
Probably because of Halloween, but nonetheless perturbing, I opened up Youtube the other day and I had nothing by witchcraft, and "evil" and murder videos show up. I started going through one by one and selecting the command "Don't recommend this channel again".
I did this for about a day, and then I started to increase my critera for what was not acceptable. I decided anything that could be considered click-bait. Something with a sensational title. Another day of clean-up, and then finally day 3 I decided to block anything that was truly a waste of time and did not serve my personal growth or interests.
Three days of cleaning my input, and now I have the most amazing video feeds. I have been exposed to some new meditation sites, and I am not spending time falling for the click-bait. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to improve their screentime experience.
So what will be your criterion for cleaning up your input?
The first step on the spiritual journey is to love thyself.
This is not about narcissistic self-aggrandizement. It is about truly connecting to the truth of the self, knowing and identifying the higher self. This is the purpose of our first course of the year.
It is amazing that we are almost at 2023, and the new year always fills me with a renewed motivations to address the goals, projects, and even those limiting beliefs and shadows that may be blocking me from living my best life.
For the past 3 years we have hosted our course Strengthening Your Spiritual Core, A Journey to Self Love. The purpose of this is to recognize the importance of knowing the true self when walking the spiritual path. It is easy to get caught up in some of the superstition or fears of a world that only honors the material. When we know ourselves, we can journey in the astral realms without fear of losing that connection to our core. We can always have discernment, turning back to ourselves for the answers when we are lost. But until we truly know our true selves, and love ourselves, we do not have that anchor to return us safely home.
Once again we will be coming together to explore the most significant person in each of our lives, ourselves. This year we will also have online content available for those who would like to go further in their exploration.
We have traditionally held our sessions either on or close to the new and full moons. The experience with this, from my perspective, is that using the earths natural rhythms in this work has power for supporting the awakening of self. Our ultimate goal is to become aware of our own inner desires, and to open up the avenues for constant connection to that higher self. Using the natural rhythms of the moon cycles will facilitate this.
If you are interested in joining us for our live sessions in 2023, please send us a message and we will add you to our email list.
Looking forward to seeing you all there with us.

Indeed we do have a purpose. There is nothing more certain in my own soul searching that to realize this truth. We are all here for a reason. To share our gifts. But what it is that I am meant to share?
I was listening to a lecture on the youtube channel Eternalised. It was speaking on the psychology of the Man-Child
The Psychology of the Man-Child (Puer Aeternus)youtu.be/9A7GTGSfrIU
I was curious about this topic, and it struck me that there are two sides of this experience of life. The one is that we don't grow up and instead act forever as the dependent child. The other is that we embrace the creative child within us and live a life full of creative expression.
On of the examples came through the story of Carl Jung's own inner struggles with feelings of depression. In his attempts to discover the source he connected to his innerchild and the things that brought him joy in childhood. Those thing for which he had great passion. In particular, his love of building.
He picked up this hobby, not as a grown man, and found he reconnected to the same feelings of joy. However, instead of building toy castles he built a real life stone tower. A functional work of art that could be considered a physical representation of his inner soul.-life. Hand carved inscriptions surround the building.
This one I like in particular:
Time is a child — playing like a child — playing a board game — the kingdom of the child. This is Telesphoros, who roams through the dark regions of this cosmos and glows like a star out of the depths. He points the way to the gates of the sun and to the land of dreams.
It reminds me that I must remain connected to my inner child if I am to find my way to the light and purpose of life. We so often believe that when we speak of purpose we suddenly have to get dark and serious, but the truth is that our light and joy is what will bring us closer to the highest vibrations and path of atonement (At One Ment).
So connect to your own inner child today. What is it that brings you joy. That is what you are meant to be doing. Create through your childlike spirit, and while you fill yourself up with joy, watch it spread to those around you.
I was listening to a talk by John Stuart Reid on sound and vibrational healing. You can listen to it here. I marked the section that I hadn't realized before. I love numbers, and came up with a system of math visualizing the base 10 system.
So when I saw this section (the video starts at this point), I was very intrigued. I hadn't realized the base 10 was in the sacred numbers. I thought that is was all about 6, or 12, or even 360. So when it was stated that phi - the golden ratio was found in all DNA. His visualization of DNA showed it as a ten-fold structure. Furthermore, he states that all five and ten fold structures contain phi! Although I developed this math for non-traditional learners, there is deep meaning in these forms. I am excited to start to share this math with our young learners. If anyone is interested in volunteering to help us, please contact me at
I was driving to Mason City and just gazing out the window looking at all of the shops and other ideas people had created in the world. I saw a place called “Steel Barn” and thought, “That’s an idea” and another place for Tatoos, “That’s an idea.” There were quite a few car wash places right next to each other. Do you think they stole the idea from one another? Or maybe they all had the same idea at the same time. By the time the third guy opened his shop, that might have seemed like less of a "good ideas".
We drove by a place near Mason City called Parr Farms. They had a giant 7 acre corn maze. I had to stop. What drives someone to create something like this? We spoke to the owner, John, and he was excited, you could feel his enthusiasm. He just said, he had an idea and then asked if we thought it was working. It seemed to be working to me. There was a live band, corn maze, petting zoo with baby piglets and goats, a fire pit, pumpkin and gourd patch, games, a haybale ride. It was pretty wonderful to be there.
Maybe the purpose was not as clear as someone who creates a carwash, but it felt good. There was goodness in his idea, and it seemed he was being true to his vision. He then told us about his plans for next year to create a 14 acre maze. I will definitely make my way over to experience this.
What drives us to create? Where does this drive to create come from. I was listening to a video on Free Masonry (see link below). I had heard of the G representing geometry, and God, but he further elaborates it as Gnosis, and finally the Generative Principle, which is the principle of co-creating with God.
I have often spoken of my belief about creativity as a way of pulling into existence something from a higher realm. But what about the drive to create? In this video, the author talks about CARE. I would call this a person's heart's desire. Care is what creates the drive that allows us to bring our hopes and ideals into reality. For me, the connection to the divine creator comes into play here. It is when we allow this creative force to flow, we co-create with the divine.
So I can see that the G = God and also G = the Generative Principle, and God = the Generative Principle.
I also like Sacred Geometry, if you have never see the math idea I co-created, check it out.
