How to Find A Luminous Place

I have included a “Guide” to finding your own luminous places on my home page, “Places of Power”, the button on the upper right side of the page. Of course, the first step is to develop sensitivity (“higher spectrum”) via quiet time alone in the wilderness, meditation and perhaps refinements of diet.

When you find a luminous place there is the option of keeping it quiet, to yourself and or close friends. This way the site is preserved, otherwise too many visitors might damage a delicate area. If the site is large, or already well known ( like Mount Shasta or Niagara Falls, then sharing your experiences with others poses far less chance of environmental disturbance.

There are many well known and famous sites all around the world. Martin Gray, anthropologist and professional photographer, has created a website to show many of these. He has done a fantastic job, and his website is a revelation you want to see. Sacred Earth: Places of Peace and Power, by Martin Gray, is a beautiful book with a magnificent collection of photos and fascinating information.

The Healing Powers of Luminous Places

I have found many luminous places, which for me induce peace and serenity: This is the most common variety of luminous places I have discovered in wilderness locations. Since most illness is caused by stress, I suspect this category of luminous places can provide a “tune up”, via resonance with the site, and induce a personal energy state conducive to self healing. The mind and the emotions become calm, and a soothing regeneration, not unlike that of deep sleep, occurs and leaves oneself deeply refreshed.

Another common variety of luminous place is energetic, conferring personal energy,  coherent in quality and focused in nature. Many illnesses are closely related to a lack of personal energy, fatigue, weariness and some degree of depression. The energetic sites boost personal power, a sense of well being, and optimism. These qualities are genuine gifts of the site and facilitate healing, plus a clear state of mind that frequently yields insights about why one is ill, and what life style changes will further the healing process.

Some sites are very powerful and can induce a state of amazing mental and emotional stability. This category is fascinating, yet after a while is limiting, as it defines a specific state of being, usually peaceful, extremely stable, coherent, focused, yet eventually boring, as it limits change, like a “straight jacket,” and maintains the focus and state of consciousness in this condition continuously, until one leaves the area. Yet for some people this might be of value, at least for a period of time.

I believe there are hundreds of thousands to millions of luminous places on our planet, most of them undiscovered. People with meditation and yoga experience have the required qualifications to discover these amazing sites, as due many people naturally gifted with higher spectrum sensitivity.

The High Spectrum of Feeling

Essential to locating luminous places in the wilderness is the ability to differentiate  subtle feelings that correspond with a considerable variety of environmental energies. I am amazed at how many qualities we can learn to perceive once this “higher spectrum” of the feeling sense is recognized and developed.

A first step is to compare feelings of the city to the wilderness: this is an opportunity to notice a dramatic difference in feeling, the qualities are opposite and easy to identify. If you cannot notice any difference between this two very different environments, then a change of diet and a practice of meditation is recommended.

A vast range of higher spectrum feelings that correspond to different natural environments can be perceived when patience and practice are employed. Every environment has a distinct “signature” of potentially perceptible feeling qualities, both city environments and wilderness. Luminous Places are especially potent natural energies that have the power to “tune-up” the body, heart, mind and spirit. This tune up will endure as long as one is near the luminous place, and slowly dissipates upon returning to the city.

Here is a list of some environments that induce intense feelings and are easy to identify: motel and hotel rooms of the city which are used frequently by many people, overcast weather (fog or clouds), heavy rain storms, gusty (dry) winds that precede a storm, geomagnetic storms, high levels of solar flux, in the hallways of mausoleums, redwood forests, in large crowds of people (such as during football and baseball games) and close proximity to crashing waves along the seashore.

Historical Documents

I have added a new selection to my website archive, “Historical Documents“.  You will find letters from friends and business associates; also there is writing contract. These documents are relevant to my previous research, publications and experience in the field.  I hope you enjoy them.

Liquid Crystal Clear

The lipid layers of a cell have been compared to liquid crystal. Effectors, receptors and gates (water channel proteins called aquaporins) float upon this living liquid crystal of life, and they are the interface or keyboard for cellular communications. The qualitative nature of this microscopic lipid layer might play an immense role in how well the cells can communicate between themselves and the outside world, and thus of awareness or consciousness.

I find it significant that so many ancient healing techniques directly alter (experiment with) cellular lipid chemistry. For example: fasting, vegetarianism, long distance walking, and the consumption of wine, olive oil, whole grain wheat kernels, and seafood, particularly fish and sushi.

Another book I highly recommend, an excellent reference is “Fats that Heal, Fats that Kill” by Edo Erasmus.

Keys to a Sensory Barrier

Finding luminous places in the wilderness requires sensitivity of our inner feeling (channel) of awareness. There are many ways to increase and diminish the feeling awareness. One of my favorites is by consciously altering the lipid layers (“cell walls”) surrounding the cells of my body. This process occurs naturally, and constantly in direct relationship to our diet and exertion (mental and especially physical activity). By eating foods rich in saturated fats like cheese, milk, avocados, and also peanut butter (mono-saturated fat), etc. cellular lipid layers become thicker with the result of diminished awareness, for it is an insulator and buffers the cells against sensory input, acting as an effective sensory barrier. This is a good condition to be in for city life, around people and electricity or locations of high electromagnetic fields (radio, tv, wi-fi, computers, etc.); it is protective, however, excess consumption of foods rich in saturated fats can lead to obesity.

How can we increase sensitivity?  By consuming ultra-poly unsaturated oils (such as the omega 3’s) as found in the following foods: salmon, tuna, sardines, anchovies, trout, herring, tilapia, shrimp and krill oil.. For vegetarians: walnuts, flax seeds, chia seeds, purslane, borage, evening primrose, and the oil of those ocean algaes known to be high in the precursors of omega 3 (DHA).  It is important to consume these at meals with less (minimal) saturated fats, because the saturated fats will win preference with the cells and this tends to exclude beneficial effects of ultra poly un-saturated oils. The ultra-poly unsaturated oils are (semi)conductive, due to the many hydrogen ions within the long chains, that can facilitate an increase of cellular awareness and sensitivity (especially within the brain and nervous system).

The cell wall, “lipid layer” plays a major role in cellular communications, into the cell and also between cells. This transparent and invisible layer protects the cells power level, electrolytes and corresponding voltages: it defines life or death for the cell. In his book  “Biology of Belief” Bruce Lipton PhD, tells us the lipid layer is the “keyboard” of cellular conscious awareness: it is the primary site of the cell’s conscious intelligent activity, a living interface, and deserves far more recognition and research.

Maps, Pathways and Ports

Words are symbols, of course, and are not the actual objects they represent.  Just as a map is not the actual terrain, and a menu is not the meal, our words, as precious as they are to us, can only hint and suggest to our imagination what they mean. For this reason words and books cannot actually take us to cosmic consciousness or mystical experiences, but they can give directions and provide maps, such as those left by other people, even from the remote past or faraway lands.

Gopi Krishna, a modern Indian scholar and office clerk has given us extensive and vivid written accounts of his experiences with cosmic consciousness, and exactly how he was able to get there.  Swami Vivekananda, who attended the Parliament on Religions in Chicago, IL, USA (1893) found complete access to eidetic imaging via his traditional yoga path to samadhi. Nicolas Tesla who invented both wireless radio and electric power generation/transmission was celibate his whole life and experienced intense mystical experiences, revelations and insights that with astounding precision guided his discoveries and numerable inventions.

Did Jesus travel to India?  The Bible tells us that one day he walked fifty miles. Anyone who can do this could easily walk from Israel to India and back, over the well-used trade routes of that time.  Also, there were ships traveling from Alexandria, Egypt to and from India quite frequently.  The port city of Alexandria, at that time, had more Jewish residents that did Jerusalem.  Trade with India was very significant, and thus quite possible that Jesus could have either walked or sailed to the East.  I believe that “The Kingdom of Heaven” within, to which he referred, was cosmic consciousness, including the incredible imaging powers of the mind that we call eidetic.

Mystical Experience

“Our normal waking consciousness, rational consciousness as we call it, is but one special type of consciousness, whilst all about it, parted from it by the filmiest of screens, there lie potential forms of consciousness entirely different…No account of the universe in its totality can be final which leaves these other forms of consciousness quite disregarded.”   p 228,   “The Varieties Of Religious Experience: A Study In Human Nature”.by William James, 1901.

Another classic on mystical experiences is “Cosmic consciouness: A Study In The Evolution of the Human Mind” by Richard Bucke, 1905.

Of course words can only hint at these transcendent – transpersonal experiences that have been reported by astronauts, yogins, shamans, monks, nuns, sleeping profits and inner space explorers (meditation to samadhi, and hypnosis).

Pathways through to Space” by Franklin Merril Wolfe  and  “Starmaker” by Olaf Stapleton are two books that do convey mystical experience, with words, and get as close as you can, via books to these amazing states of transcendence.

Space Walk

Have you seen the documentary “Live From Space” by National Geographic?        Space walking has become an essential part of life at the International Space Station. How profound and life transforming is this extraordinary experience, for the astronauts, I wonder, where so many factors (or lack of ) completely redefine the inner qualitative characteristics of which we identify as our own inner self.

There are astronauts who have had both ecstatic and mystical experiences while on space missions, and they have told us of such, including interviews and books (Edgar Mitchell, Rusty Schweickart). See the documentary, “In the Shadow of the Moon”, Apollo missions to the moon, which includes vivid stories by the astronauts of their experiences.

Early Modern Human Migrations and Walking

Alice Roberts MD,PhD does an amazing job taking viewers of her documentary on a round the world walk in “The Incredible Human Journey“. Following the probable pathways out of Africa, she visits fascinating locations including caves, ruins, and contemporary tribal people. Long distance walking is everywhere in this film, and reminds us again of how deep it reaches into our common global history.  I found the documentary at the public library, and I am sure it is available as a DVD or download. This is one you want to see!
