Take a look at this YouTube presentation of 2016 PCT hike. (Living Step by Step, The Pacific Crest Trail 2016, by Keith and Gina) These folks did a fantastic job of combining camcorder and digital camara pictures to document their hike. The quality is outstanding: I especially like the scenes of the High Sierra Range of Light.
Dream on: AIPCT American International Pacific Crest Trail Starting from the tip of South America, whenever possible following the mountain trails and crests, to the Berring Strait.
Dream more: IT International Trail Starting from the tip of South America, to the Berring Strait, Across Siberia to Europe and then from Egypt, Africa to the Beach at Capetown, South Africa.
In the future, long distance hiking/backpacking will be very popular. Hiking trails around the world add up to hundreds of thousands of miles, and some of these can be combined to create more trails like the Pacific Crest Trail.
Eat well and walk far.

Not long ago I had the good fortune to visit an elementary school. This was before school started, and I was standing outside a first grade classroom near groups of young children. Suddenly I realized this was a luminous place, with contagious enthusiasm, and a sweet positive energy, not coherent (like near groups of people meditating), yet radiant and joyful. My perceptual ability, which I have developed via finding luminous places, was acutely aware of the children’s group energy field aura, and its healing power.
The Young Messiah is a movie (fiction) about Jesus when he was a young boy. There are multiple scenes where his healing power radiates to others, and his mother cautions him about allowing others to see this. It is an excellent movie, with outstanding actors, story and cinematography: you will want to see this one!
There are research results indicating that most natural healers use the same alpha wave (close to 7.83hertz) when actively healing, inducing this in their patients: this is the same frequency as the schumann resonance. Also, drumming and meditation have been found to facilitate resonance with the alpha wave band, inducing relaxation and a healing state.

I have found luminous locations near earthquake faults. The sites are relatively small and very consistent providing highly impressive qualitative effects on my mental focus and sense of well being: I am amazed at how precisely these geo energies, probably piezoelectric, interface or couple in such a gentle and beneficial way. They do not exist along the whole fault line, rather they appear in small areas, not far from the fault lines.
The French Demeter satellite acquired data revealing ionization in the atmosphere, preceding, during, and after earthquakes. This indicates piezo electricity generated by fault pressures and movements, radiating up, from the fault area into the sky. At times this power is so great that the air and sky ionize sufficiently enough to create visible lights, known as earthquake lights (EOL). See YouTube presentation of Santa Rosa, CA 2014 and another event that occurred in Italy2009.

A quality that I perceive at some luminous places is magnetic. I can feel this effect quite distinctly, and in degrees of intensity. Those sites which have magnetic qualities correspond with feeling constrained, limited, and very stable. It is soothing and usually pleasant, but not for long periods of time, otherwise a desire to move and free oneself of such a rigid and defined state of being occurs.. Sites with strong magnetic characteristics are common in some mountainous regions, especially near strato-volcanoes and in the proximity of some earthquake faults.
How do we perceive magnetic fields? Vestiges (or dormant abilities)of human magnetic sensing have been identified, and these are potentially active. ” TV Fursa has concluded that “Electrons and nuclei, which possess magnetic moment, are the “magnetic antennae” in any biosystem, including human. Also, magnitite is found throughout the brain, “A minimum of 5 million single-domain crystals (Biogenic magnetite)per gram for most tissues in the (human) brain and greater than 100 million crystals per gram for pia and dura. Magnetic property data indicate the crystals are in clumps of between 50 and 100 particles.”magnetite sensors in the brain

Earth from Space (2013) is a documentary about satellites and the data they provide about a wide range of environmental issues. This is a master piece of brilliant visual effects, revealing some of the interactive and dynamic forces that shape our world. This presentation is spell binding, you wont want to miss even one scene of this impressive documentary.
Included are scenes of the geomagnetic field as seen from space, and the solar winds generated by corona mass ejections and massive solar flares as they interact with the earth. Also, the presentation includes views from the International Space Station of the numerable (approximately.40 per second) lightning strikes, which generate the schumann resonance frequencies.
I found this documentary as a DVD at our local library; it is still available for purchase online, and can be seen on YouTube.com

Do UFO’s recharge, or power up at luminous places? I think this is possible. Some of the sites I have visited are very powerful and radiate energy over a very wide area. One example is strato volcanoes such as Mt Shasta, Mt Adams and Mt Rainier. I have visited these and I have experienced extraordinary geo powers at each of these volcanoes. The quality of energy is unique and I cannot identify it with any known energies, and therefore suspect it could be in a category of its own, and is associated only with strato volcanoes. Furthermore, UFO’ are frequently observed near these sites, they are known as UFO hotspots. I have never seen a UFO, but I suspect they exist both in actual, present time “exterior” reality and multiple dimensions, including inner dimensions of consciousness.
“They were people, but they were gods” (Eran gente, pero eran dioses.) is a statement I heard frequently from Huichol Indian yarn painting artists, as they attempted to communicate their stories about certain aspects of their sacred knowledge and when some of their traditions started. For more than ten years (1972 – 1982) I listened to visionary yarn artists talk about the people who were gods, and it just went right by me, I could not figure out what they were talking about. Recently I have watched the series of Ancient Aliens on the Discovery channel (excellent program produced by Kevin Birnes). This seems like a possible explanation for the people gods, who shared knowledge and information with the Huichol ancestors long ago. The Huichol might have been visited by ancient aliens, people gods, who taught healing skills and pilgrimage to luminous places found from the west coast to mountains in central Mexico, including their most sacred mountain (extinct?) volcano from which, according to their myths, the sun was born.

Dawn and twilight are great times to go for a walk. Luminosity at these times is especially beautiful and gently touches the soul with awe and mystery. Walking into the sunrise, or toward the sunset reminds us of waking and sleeping, of the transition between inner and outer worlds. Inspiration and motivation to go out and walk is much greater during these luminous hours of sunrise and sunset.
Walking into the sun light also occurs within, and is a natural result of this simple, yet supreme exercise. Breathing natures fresh energetic air outdoors and walking greater distances increases clarity of the mind, and this is complemented with an exuberant, optimistic enthusiasm for the day.
In 1955 Grandma Gatewood walked the full length of the Appalachian Trail. In her golden years she hiked this trail three times, the last hike was at age 75. Her story shows us that age is no barrier to walking, camping and wilderness adventures. She hiked thousands of miles wearing only simple Keds tennis shoes, a shower curtain as a rain cover, no backpack and instead carried her food and clothes in a sack over her shoulder. You can read about this amazing woman and her hike on the Appalachian Trail.

John Freemont, guided by Kit Carson into the Rocky Mountains wrote the following statement in his official report:
“The air was fragrant with the odor of the pines, and I realized this delightful morning the pleasure of breathing that mountain air which makes a constant theme of the hunter’s praise, and which now made us feel as if we had been drinking some exhilarating gas.”
The Daring Adventures of Kit Carson and Freemont, by John C. Freemont (Kindle).
Some very adventurous people have taken long distance walking all the way: around the world! This shows what our potential is, at least for those with good feet and a capability for super endurance. I can imagine that walking everyday can be addicting: to the intense sensations and ever changing scenery; but this is a good addiction. When walking is done carefully, and optimizing the healthy practices of eating well, plus resting enough it leads to a clarity of the inner self, illuminating within, filling oneself with well being and deep satisfaction. The point of optimal returns from walking is the middle path: not too much, and not too little.
Here are a few of the people who are, or have walked around the world:
Paul Salopek Ethiopia to the tip of South America: in progress. He plans on a 7-year trip. See National Geographic, December2013.Website: outofedenwalk.com
Karl Bushby Tierra Del Fuego, Chile to England: in progress, currently in Siberia. Book: Karl Bushby: Giant Steps A great story and adventure!
George Meegan Tierra Del Fuego, Chile to Artic Circle: completed Book: The Longest Walk: An Oddessey of the Human Spirit Excellent!
Ffyona Campbell NY to SF Australia, Capetown S. Africa to England: completed. Books: On Foot through Africa is my favorite

Long distance hiking in the wilderness is a good goal to aim for. It is as difficult as you wish it to be, and usually turns out to be much more than you expect, in many ways. The American National Scenic Trails known as the PCT (Pacific Crest Trail) and the AT (Appalachian Trail) are very long, several thousand miles each, and cross rugged mountain ranges. Do you think it is possible for people with no experience or training to hike long distance trails such as these?
Wild is a story about a young lady, Cheryl Strayed, who accomplished this on the PCT. This auto-biographical account is worth reading, rich in detail, with moving narratives: it was turned into an impressive (especially the wilderness scenery) movie with the same title, starring Reese Witherspoon.
A Walk In The Woods, another story about long distance hiking – on the AT. Bill Bryson, a very talented author, shares this story in association with a an old friend with whom he hikes the AT. Robert Redford plays Bill Bryson in the movie created from this intriguing and humorous tale.
I recommend reading both of these books and seeing the movies. These are very extraordinary stories, about exceptional people. As you will learn from their accounts, the need for preparation via training is obvious with hindsight, and foresight would suggest years of adequate training.
