Ahhhh, what a lovely weekend! Saturday was spent lounging around by the river with a picnic basket capturing the beauty of it all with my camera. Sunday was a pow wow at Mohegan’s. Both days were a perfect mid seventy degrees with sun shine. What more could I ask for?!
There’s something truely amazing about the energy of a pow wow. I can’t quite place my finger on it, but where I’m normally reclusive of crowds I just glow at a pow wow. I can honestly say it’s the only kind of large gathering that I’ve ever attended where I’ve never seen any hostility. What do you think it is that makes the difference?
Is it the idea of many coming together to celebrate the same thing? Can’t be it…when folks gather to celebrate music there is often disrespect and hostility. Though maybe that’s the alchohol. I can’t say for certain, but I like to believe there is magic in the drums. It’s the beat of the drum through the earth mother that makes me glow. The vibration is so … so…. goodness it’s hard to find the right words. Inspiring? Grounding? Uniting? Healing even? Magical! That’s what I’m sticking to. There is no other way to put it. The drums spread forth a magical vibration of peace unlike anything else I’ve ever felt.
Much love and many blessings to the hoop dancer who left me in awe. I don’t know how I’ve never managed to see all the geometric symbolism in the dance! Astounding really, which brings me to an article I received just a few days before the pow wow. Enjoy!
Friends in the Fields
by Owen Waters
Every summer, in the south of England,
grand and mysterious works of art
silently appear in the crop fields.
This magnificent crop circle was formed right in the heart of crop circle country, next to Silbury Hill in the county of Wiltshire, England.
Measuring hundreds of feet in diameter, it employs symbols from the Mayan calendar to predict that the Mayan Fourth Sun era will end in the year 2012. It actually makes the same prediction in two different ways, so that there is no doubt as to the intention of this message.
According to the Mayan calendar, a new era of human consciousness will dawn in late 2012. To paraphrase astronaut Neil Armstrong, the shift of consciousness in the year 2012 is likely to be, “One small step for each human, one giant leap for mankind.” Future generations will undoubtedly look back upon the pivotal year of 2012 as a turning point in the development of human consciousness.
A variation on the healing symbol of the caduceus can be seen in the above photograph on the left. Today, this famous Hermetic symbol is associated with medicine or healing. As a Hermetic symbol, it traditionally represented Hermes or Mercury. Mercury was the symbol of communications, while Hermes represented ancient wisdom and secret knowledge.
The white horse at Milk Hill can be seen behind the crop circles in the above photographs. It was carved into the chalk undersoil 200 years ago and measures more than 200 feet in length. The ‘tram lines’ in the crops are access lines made by farm equipment.
The question is, who makes these grand works of art? Nobody seems to know for sure. They appear mysteriously, often just before dawn. Eye witnesses have reported globes of light ‘dancing’ above the fields as they make their patterns by swirling and flattening precise sections of crops.
Crop circles are not a new phenomenon. They have been documented as far back as the year 1678. In recent years, however, they have multiplied enormously. Since the early 1990s, observers have logged over 10,000 crop circles.
Each crop circle is typically huge, often several hundred feet in diameter. One even measured 800 feet (240 m) in diameter. Their design is often artistically brilliant.
And yet, they are not just art. They portray symbols of great mystical significance. Some of them are more obvious, like representations of the ancient Mayan calendar of time, or the human chakra system in the above photograph. The popular system of seven chakras is shown as (left to right) the root, sex, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye and crown chakras. The symbolism of the crown chakra is easy to see, as are the third eye and heart chakras. Also, the root chakra symbol on the far left represents the fact that the root chakra powers the rest of the chakras with activated life energy.
Some crop circles have depicted formations such as galaxies, ancient Sanskrit letters, DNA-like double-helixes, asteroid belts, spiral nebulae and eclipses. Other crop formations are not so obvious to the left-sided, logical part of the brain, and yet hold tremendous right-brain symbolism relating to the shift of human consciousness. These symbols remind the inner consciousness of what it once knew but had forgotten. They are wake-up calls to a humanity in transformation.

When I researched back through the crop circle archives for 2004, I came across a most encouraging surprise.
If you look at the Infinite Being logo at the top left of this web page, you will see that it consists of, 1) the symbol for infinity, and 2) being, symbolized by a circle. I had always thought that a circle was the best way to represent the holistic, all-inclusive nature of being as a state of consciousness.
Well, on July 28th, 1994, at West Overton near Avebury, Wiltshire, guess what shape was formed in a field on that day? Here it is:
How about that for a message in the fields? Whoever is sending us messages through such transformational imagery is obviously helping us through a critical juncture in human history. Whoever they are, and however they form these beautiful crop circles so delicately and so quietly, I just call them, our “Friends in the Fields.”

*Hopi Blue Star or Blue Kachina Prophecy*
An ancient Hopi Indian prophecy states, “When the Blue Star Kachina makes
its appearance in the heavens, the Fifth World will emerge”. This will be
the Day of Purification. The Hopi name for the star
Sirius<http://www.crystalinks.com/sirius.html>is Blue Star Kachina. It
will come when the Saquasohuh (Blue Star) Kachina
dances in the plaza and removes his mask.
[Note: Reality is a metaphor in which we quest to find answers to the
greater truth of who we are and why we are here. Soemthing in our souls
tells us that change is happening on a global consciousness level. The blue
frequency is part of that. Sirius is Isis
