In 1986 I traveled with two friends to the “Gathering of the Children of Light” on Mt. Shasta in California. I had seen a very small little advertisement on the bulletin board of East West
Bookstore, my home away from home, in Menlo Park. All it said was “A gathering on Mt. Shasta: Three days with speakers and channeling; $50.00, including meals.” Pat, Marilyn and I thought: “What fun! We will camp at Crystal Lake and see what the gathering is all about.”
We didn’t know what to expect and were planning for the adventure of going to a new place and being three women out on our own, which was not the norm of the time. How quickly life has changed. Our campsite was breathtaking, with a view of the mountain, and our spirits were very high and joyful. The first morning, we traveled up the Mountain, not quite to Panther Meadows, and came to a clearing with a wooden stage built for the event and a makeshift kitchen. To our surprise there were 300 people there. We kept looking at each other with expressions of, “Wow, how did we get here?”
The three days were nothing short of miraculous. On the first day, at the morning break, I noticed a young man with several people standing around him. I walked over to see that he was holding an optically clear, eight-sided, quartz crystal about 11 inches long. I had never seen anything like it and could see why people were exclaiming at its beauty. He casually said, “Well, everyone needs a metaphor.”
Right after seeing the crystal, I was walking across the grounds with a man I had just met, and we had walked several hundred feet before I realized we had been having an entire conversation telepathically. I was starting to get the gist that this was going to be an amazing three days.
The speakers were the “Who’s Who” of channels at the time, and the gathering was presented by “The Association of Sananda and Sanat Kumara,” A.S.S.K. I had read many of the books authored by these channels and was thrilled to meet them: Virginia Essene, Sister Thedra and Tueta to name a few. The book compiled and published from that event is still available on Amazon: Celestial Raise; ‘Tiers of Light’ Pouring Forth from the Son, compiled by Marcus.
As the days progressed my friends and I were transformed without even realizing it. At the breaks we were treated to amazing meals that seemed to have just materialized for a group of 300 people. Marilyn and Pat and I noticed how quiet and peaceful and harmonious the days were when we noticed several men spaced several yards apart, around the perimeter, doing light work. We hadn’t seen this energy work before, but it was explained to us by one of the volunteers.
We often don’t know when an event or a moment will change our lives and transform us. I stayed an extra day so I could attempt to integrate all I had experienced and to explore the Mountain. A volunteer told me to make sure and visit Panther Meadows, which I did, and was delighted by Alpine meadow wildflowers and an “otherworldly feeling.” Later I found out it was named after St. Germaine’s Spirit-Panther that people had seen there, not realizing the Panther was a spirit.
As I drove home the next day, alone, a song kept playing on the radio, “We are the World, We are the Children.” A very strange thing happened; no matter what channel I turned to, this same song was playing. I had about 300 miles to drive. About every 10 minutes, the entire way, this song came on. I got the message. That was the moment I committed to my World Service, even though I didn’t know what it was going to be. A few months later I formally opened to channel at a workshop given by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer.
We are in the time now of a Global Transformation. People are opening their hearts and realizing they have a spiritual purpose, even though they don’t quite know what it is. Keep listening to your inner high self, and you will hear step-by-step what to do. Be Love, and you will see you have never been separated from your Creator, your fellow man or Mother Nature.
