Boots on the Ground

Tired worn out souls

This morning I watched Obama say that ground troops in Iraq will not face combat. Can't say as I believe that. It has often been said that if there was an attack against humanity (usually referring to aliens) the countries of the world would unite to defeat their common enemy. Is ISIS teaching us a lesson in unity? Probably not as that is not the way we are programmed. .... paying attention to the Senate vote today.

Will the US troops dealing with Ebola in Africa, bring it home? So many hidden agendas ...

State of emergency declared for Northern California counties hit by fires (Video)   CNN - September 18, 2014
We are used to summer wildfires in California, but this year things are really bad. I'm sure by now you've read that Weed (a city in northern California) has had great loss. Weed is about 10 miles (16 km) west-northwest of Mount Shasta, a prominent northern California landmark, and the second-tallest volcano in the Cascade Range. People often go to Mount Shasta for spiritual reasons - many of whom use weed and other substances. Mountain altitude should be enough to get anyone high.

Mount Shasta

Mount Shasta, a 14,179-foot (4,322 m) stratovolcano, is the second-highest peak in the Cascade Range and the fifth highest peak in California. It is a member in the Cascade Volcanic Arc and is located in Siskiyou County, and has an estimated volume of 108 cubic miles (450 km), making it the most voluminous stratovolcano of the Cascades. Physically unconnected to any nearby mountain, and rising abruptly from miles of level ground which encircle it, Mount Shasta stands some 10,000 feet (3,000 m) above the surrounding area.


For the Shasta Tribe the mountain was at the center of creation. Native American lore holds that Shasta is inhabited by Spirit Chief Skell who descended from heaven to the mountain's summit to create humanity. Many spiritual groups, have been attracted to Shasta, more than any other Cascade volcano. Mt. Shasta, California, a small town near Shasta's western base, is a focal point for many of these religions. Mount Shasta has long been sacred to the Native North American Indians of Northern California. Local tribes practice healing rituals at the springs that flow from the mountain. Other rituals include Sun Dances.

The history of New Age fascination with Mount Shasta can be traced to the publication of Frederick Spencer Oliver's fantasy novel A Dweller On Two Planets. The novel is about the Lemurian race who traveled to Mount Shasta when their continent sank beneath the ocean and are now said to live inside the mountain in a series of tunnels. In the years subsequent to the publication of Oliver's book, many seeking people claimed to have encountered Lemurians at Shasta.

Guy Ballard's I Am Activity and Elizabeth Clare Prophet's Church Universal and Triumphant are probably the best-known among numerous groups to attempt to participate in, or redefine, Shasta's spiritual heritage. Many cults hold that races of sentient beings, ostensibly superior to humans, live in or on Shasta, or visit the mountain in UFOs. Lenticular clouds sometimes form over the mountain. This is a fairly typical meteorological phenomenon over high places on the earth, which is often seen and mistaken for unidentified flying objects.

Mt. Shasta is also the site of a Buddhist monastery, Shasta Abbey, founded by Houn Jiyu-Kennett in 1971. Mount Shasta City hosts 16 Christian churches. If the membership roles are combined, they would account for approximately 25 percent of the population.

The town of Mount Shasta, at the foot of the mountain, is headquarters for several New Age and other spiritual groups, some of whom regard it as a source of cosmic energy. Mount Shasta allegedly is a major energy grid point. For those who believe, it is therefore an initiation point whose energies awaken those who come to meditate, have sweat lodges and other rituals, or just to experience the energies.

Mount Shasta's energies are reported to be magnetic. It's regarded as one of the nine sacred mountains of the world. It is considered by some an entry point to another dimension and allegedly the home of the mythological underground city, Telos. Guy Ballard claims to have met ascended master St. Germain on its slopes. Every spring at the time of the full moon of Taurus, Mount Shasta holds the Wesak Festival, in honor of Buddha. This corresponds to a festival held in the Himalayas at the same time.
