We have discovered that Dragons are the broken ends of branches or fallen trees. As you look upon them, many times you will clearly see their eyes, snout, mouth, body, and other features, which will look like a Dragon. My comment is that you have to drag on them to pull them out of the woods.

Gift/Guest post from: June 9, 2017 – Laura Walthers –

It was a very enchanting day. I took my friend Shay to visit a beautiful magical place in Oregon, Opal Creek-3-Pools. When you choose to live consciously—nature mirrors the many levels of consciousness back to you. So you may ask, “What does that mean—to live ‘consciously’?

It stems from believing—all things in creation are connected. From that point of unity consciousness it grows into allowing that higher part of you to come forward. This opens you up to the many dimensions around you in your reality. So when you are in nature the many levels of beings can connect with you and play and celebrate life with you!

I invite you to walk with Shay and I and SEE the many ways this can happen!

Happy Trails!

Above Photo:  Shay is playing her Tibetan bowl at Opal Creek. Notice the white arrow in the back-green-brush of the photo. This is the Forest Deva welcoming us to the area. She reveals an imprint of her green face and crown on her head.

Shay could feel the Forest Deva before she saw her. The forest deva sent her a huge wave of love! The forest deva wanted me to take her photo. Each section of any landscape has an overlighting deva. (There are faces in the rocks next to Shay’s head.)

As we trekked to the upper level of the park we could feel a strong connection in the forest. The faces in the trees were appearing and welcoming us. When this happens you are seeing physically and spiritually. Your 3rd eye is activated! 

Shay is clairvoyant and was given a glimpse of another timeline that had existed there many years ago. She could see a Chinese temple with red and gold carvings on it. Then she heard a voice come from a large rock. A man appeared with partial bald head and a beard and mustache out of moss. He asked her is she would play the Tibetan bowl for him. As she played I heard the words, “Ring of Truth” echoing from the sounds. He was part of the royalty that had once lived there.

Then she heard a voice coming from another rock that said, “Quickly take the photo, the sun has revealed me—but the light will not last for long.”

As I approached this section of the forest with Shay I came upon a wizard! He was the guardian of the area and allowed the doorway/portal to open so we could connect with the Asian temple. His wizardry was alluring and profound.

I was guided to take Shay to see the cave and rock beings that live there. We are viewing them high above the canyon pools below—on the other side.

As we approached the canyon and focused our attention on the cave0151the energy blew me away. Shay could feel it too. I have connected with them before but today it was very strong. I decided to send love and we both toned together. Then I could SEE a huge face in the doorway! Wow!

The rock being was connecting and sending strong energy. You can see his eye looking at you. It was smiling and pleased we were able to receive. I also noticed a dark figure that outlined the entrance of the door. It appeared to be dancing. I asked if it had a message and Shay heard, “When Humanity growsthe Universe dances. ” 

Here is a closeup of the Rock Being:

“This exercise will begin to open your thoughts along the possibility of actual faerie encounters.  If you can answer “YES” to any of these questions, you have probably experienced the faerie realm and just did not realize it”

08:  Did you ever have or ever see a child with an imaginary playmate?
09:  Did you ever observe children when playing and see them talking to themselves, especially when participating in outdoor activities?

12:  Did you ever hear music or singing from unidentified sources?
13:  Do you dreams often and consistenly involve outdoor environments, woods, fields, streams, etc.?
