So, one night my friend takes me for a drive to the beach. It’s winter. It’s freezing at the ocean. We stand on the sand and look up at the stars. We look out into the night at the black water and listen to the waves rolling in. We look up at the tiny sparkling specs of light in the sky.
The next day I’m feeling a strange tingling in my
legs. I’ve never felt anything like it before. I have no idea what it is. The tingling sensation is stronger when I lie down. It’s a pleasant sensation, but nevertheless a tad worrying as I don’t know what it is.
I ask my friend who took me to the beach at night if he knows what it might be. He says I’ve probably been drinking too much caffeine. But I know it’s not that. I’ve never been deep sea diving, but it feels like “the bends.” It feels like something has happened to me that is different from anything I’ve ever known.
Over the next few years I get these sporadic tingles in my legs, and then in 1987 a full blown intense energy-frequency change over a period of months, culminating in a powerful (and stressful!) period of weeks where the energy circulating in my body seems to be going haywire. It’s moving everywhere. I feel spirals in my solar plexus, in my heart chakra, throat chakra, and forehead. I’m loving it. But it’s also a tad scary. I have no one to talk to about it. I don’t know if there are any books about it, and if there are, I don’t have them. I’m on my own, in other words.
And yet the sensations are always pleasant, sometimes gloriously so. I trust them. I have to. I am experiencing no control over what is happening to me, and yet I know it is only good.
In later years I will come to see it as the early stages of My Journey Through Art and Ascension, a book I am currently working on.
And all I can think of at this moment, is how lucky those of you are who are experiencing vibrations and frequencies during this time when so much information is available! Oh, I know it has nothing to do with luck. I know I chose to be born when I was, just as you did. Still, I have to add how rough it was back then, not having anyone else to compare notes with. Thinking I was some kind of freak, and afraid to speak about what was happening to me, because it just didn’t fit into the picture of the world I was in at that time.
I did however, draw and paint a few pictures of my new world. And it is my pleasure to share them with you!
