I took a walk on the west shore trail of Onondaga Lake on New Years’ eve and stopped by the Peacemakers’ Sanctuary (http://www.jubileeinitiative.org/sacredpeacemaker.html ) to contemplate and meditate. I had not been there in years.
It is a special place for me. My prayers were once answered there. When I came back to Syracuse in the fall of 2000 I was struck by the number of murders in the city and asked God for guidance in helping to reduce the murder rate. I was told me to pray at the Peacemakers Sanctuary in 2002. We had a ceremony there on a snowy and cold day after Thanksgiving, followed up by my praying there each day for several months. There were no more murders in 2002 and they steadily began to decline in the following years.
Reeds have overgrown much of the area. The bench was moved further up the shoreline away from the lake. I spent much time in 2002 and 2003 praying and meditating on that bench.
A vortex http://wisdom-magazine.com/Article.aspx/1355/ has formed near the bench. I marked it with a large stone. This would be an excellent place to meditate on or to try and feel and experience the consciousness emanating from there—the vortex increases the draw of consciousness. Although I must admit that while there is a very powerful positive consciousness there one also experiences an underlying negative or toxic consciousness from all the chemicals dumped in and around the lake—one that most of you will not feel.
The Peacemakers’ Sanctuary taught me that praying at Mother Earth’s Soul http://www.jubileeinitiative.org/gaiassoul.html (on her fields of consciousness) can be powerfully transformative. 25 people gathered for a ceremony followed up by one going there each day for prayer for several months put a big dent in the murder rate in Syracuse. What else is possible? If enough of us gathered could we reduce violence in New York State, the USA or even the world?
2012 is upon us. People are talking about earth changes and the transformation of humankind. You can help that transformation by praying at Mother Earth’s soul and her many fields of consciousness in upstate NY. See my listing of sacred sites for some possibilities: http://www.jubileeinitiative.org/sacredsites.html
Help Bring about the change.
