Planet 1 - The Limestone Cave (part 6)

The icy water glass slips from my grasp crashing towards the ground with a loud clattering sound that only shattering glass can make.  “Are you ok?” Johnny is watching me with a very inquisitive look on his face.“I don’t know. It must have been the condensation on the outside of the glass. I wasn’t really paying attention. I think it just slipped.”I moved swiftly, as any mother of two inquisitive barefoot boys would, to retrieve a broom. Entering the garage, I notice the temperature is cool, which provides a welcome sensation. I can see an assortment of rakes, snow shovels, brooms and random wooden tools in the corner of the garage. Traversing through toys, balls, and wooden two by fours I see the back wall of the garage start to pull away from me. The broom which was only a foot away moments ago, now seemed to be at the end of a long distorted hallway. Every step closer seems to add five more feet onto my trek. Turning around I see my exit route is now shrouded in complete darkness. Pivoting again to move ahead towards the broom, I find there is no path to move forward. There is nothing, but dark, cool air. At this point I freeze in place, feeling a heaviness and pressure settling onto my chest. My breath becomes labored as I notice a warm glow entering at what appears to be the top corner of the room.

The warm colored energy now fills my chest and I no longer feel a tightness or pressure when breathing. As a matter of fact, it doesn’t feel like I am breathing at all, surprisingly it feels quite normal. I feel wonderful, like time has stopped and my body is in some kind of suspended state.

“That’s right Dear One, you are starting to acclimate to the process.” Startled, I am not sure what just happened, but there is definitely a voice talking to me from somewhere beyond the darkness.“Who are you?”“I am one of the twelve guides, leading you through this journey.” The voice speaks again from somewhere beyond my line of sight. “Why can’t I see you?” I ask outwardly to the darkness.

“When your heart, mind, and body are in alignment you will begin to perceive my energy. When these elements of you are not in alignment you may simply hear me, or feel me, possibly sense me, or dream about me. There are lots of ways you will be in connection to me, but only when you are relaxed enough and in full alignment will you actually visualize my energy.” “So what am I supposed to do now?” At this request two beams of light shot into the room and physically touched my shoulders. This created waves of intense energy that started pulsating through my body. An oddly familiar door appeared directly in front of me– and through the door traveled my body.

“My eyes immediately detect that I am within an enclosed cave, with everything scorched in a warm reddish-orange light and coated with a layer of damp glittery wetness. Letting my senses acclimate to the darkness I find myself standing at the last step of a descending stone carved staircase. Behind me I can perceive only the faint opening of light atop an ascending path. In front of me there appears to be two distinct paths that lie within my immediate vantage point. Both of these paths are illuminated by the glow of a pale green runway. Like a movie theater with lighted isle ways, the glowing seems to be emanating from just below the surface of the ground. Realizing there is running water moving and churning under the stone, I assess it has to be an underground stream! Standing up again I see the cavern up ahead has a distinct fork, hiding the final destination with dark bulging cave walls. It is here I realize I have a choice to make as to which path I take. One path moves towards my right and the other towards the left. A heavy darkness surrounds the path to the left “A heavy darkness surrounds the path to the left, yet I feel an intriguing longing to go there. The only perceivable light emanates directly from the in-ground stream, which is more visible on the right-hand side, and so my body physically adjusts itself towards “the path on the right and my expedition continues. Glancing back towards the darkness on the left, I exhale a gentle sigh, letting go the need to explore and focus my energy on the path ahead.

“The luminescent green color glows enough to illuminate my immediate path with its light seeping up through the cracks in the cave floor. Meandering around corners, twists and turns, the catwalk begins to open wider where I can once again walk normally. The final descent into the cave along the exposed stream reveals a large final chamber. I can see beyond the pool is a bowed vertical wall that appears to signal the end of this passageway. Moving gingerly around this final chamber, I can see that this final wall is engraved with a large grid, like that of a chess board. Each square of the grid holds a large crystal. Each crystal seems to be a Herkimer diamond; which has the unique attribute of points at each end. “One end has been stuck into the wall and the other end is visibly protruding outward in the direction of the stream. My eyes scan each crystal and I can see they are of different clarity and size. The crystals are placed within the grid almost touching one another, but contained within their own box, with just enough space between each to push the crystal in or pull it out if needed. The grid itself seems to have been masterfully constructed. Looking at the cave set up in its totality I think that this gird might be a circuit board of some type.

More curious than ever I walk back to the stream, where I realize the green glow does not come from the water, but from the stone that makes up the basin of the stream. As the pale green stone comes more fully into view I know this is lime stone. “Does lime stone glow?” A rush of warmth flows into my body and removes the damp coldness that I had apparently gotten used to.

“Hello Dear One, have you enjoyed your exploration of the Limestone Cave?” Startled, my body finds complete stillness. I see no person and hear no echo of a voice within the cave walls. This voice, soft and gentle, just spoke seemingly into my right ear from the inside out… “Feel into the air that surrounds you.” “Why do I suddenly feel sick?” I asked the voice. “The structure you find yourself in has been created to harness energy.” The reply came.

Feeling my body again I could sense the energy in the air. My ears could also pick up a subtle churning sound coming from the moving water. There was also a hiss or a release of bubbles that was occurring just below the surface of the water. Harnessing energy seemed to make sense. “Your body is interpreting this correctly. You are perceiving the cycles of the water that push through tiny holes within the limestone rock. This creates natural currents of energy that get sent to crystals within the grid. You could consider this space a “power plant” that can generate the necessary energy for the beings residing within the city above.”

“Moving into a visual experience, I could sense the inhabitants above this cave descending the stone steps and retrieving the crystals from their placement within the grid, as if this grid was a battery charging station. The beings would come to retrieve newly harnessed energy crystals and replace old used crystals that had been drained of their energy. This day dream felt like a suitable explanation of what I had just mentally witnessed. With this I gave myself an approving nod of the head. “Hold on, this is not it. There is more for you to understand. Close your eyes and ask to be taken to the purple flowers” Closing my eyes, I did what the voice requested of me…
