Once we got settled in our new home in Arizona, I felt compelled to build a medicine wheel on my property. I actually did not know much about medicine wheels; I just found them to be aesthetically pleasing. But studying a little bit, I learned they can focus energy and are employed traditionally by Native American tribes for both ceremony and healing. Perfect for my efforts. I even developed a little ceremony for entering the wheel and honoring the four directions. I used it for the first time in this crossing. What follows is a short video of spirit answering my question about the energy of the medicine wheel. (continued below...)
A spirit answers my question about the medicine wheel.
My guides first told me they thought I could handle crossing 5,000 spirits at a time by myself. When I surpassed that, they told me 20,000. When I surpassed that, they told me they didn't know. In fact, I became so successful at crossing spirits, it effectively altered their entire timetable for bringing lost souls home. So I've always been curious about what exactly is my limit. I finally learned that early in 2016. By this time, I only did crossings about once a month because of potential demands on my body. And I also no longer kept track of the exact numbers of spirits crossed. I had exceeded the number of 600 million I was given, so exact records were no longer important. In February of 2016, I helped more than 106 million spirits, in a crossing event that I performed alone inside my medicine wheel. That, I learned, is essentially my limit. I was basically a basket case for several days afterward, and felt fatigued for weeks.
It is not insignificant that my friend Valerie Borrego told me soon after that I did not have to do this work alone, that she was there for support. I'm sure her guides and mine inspired her generous spirit. I have since come to rely heavily on Valerie. She brings an earthy grounding presence to my crossings that is a perfect compliment to my energy. I don't feel right if I do a crossing without her. (continued below...)
I've always felt my calling would morph from big mass crossings to more targeted crossings in specific destinations. We've crossed the easy ones, now perhaps it is time to seek the spirits that are entrenched at specific locations. The Jerome Grand Hotel is one such spot. Valerie had an experience there on New Years Eve when the spirits specifically asked for her to bring me to the location. We visited and I knew I had to do a crossing there.
Jerome is small place in the mountains above the Verde Valley near Sedona. It was a wild mining boom town until the 1930's. It's marketed as a very haunted ghost town, but in reality is a tourist trap with some undeniable charm. The Jerome Grand Hotel was a hospital for many years. It is known as one of the most haunted locations in America. I knew the hotel would not welcome a crossing event but I knew there were spirits depending on us. So Stella and rented a room for a night, asking for the most haunted room. Valerie and and her friend Clyde Applegate joined us in the room for the crossing ceremony. After the crossing, Stella and I slept peacefully and undisturbed in the room.
In the morning there was a paranormal team preparing for an investigation of the hotel. Stella and I left chuckling about that. I later learned from my guides that there had been fourteen spirits permanently occupying the hotel, and that we were able to help all of them cross, along with 79,000 other spirits gathered by my spirit team. Hotels don't remain clear for long because guests bring their own attached spirits, some of whom choose to remain. But, at least for a time, Jerome was not a ghost town. (continued below...)
Two days after the Jerome crossing we were in Sedona to see the traveling replica of the Vietnam War Memorial wall. Valerie suggested we do a crossing in Sedona in conjunction with the arrival of the wall and it felt right to me. My brother Eugene was a Vietnam veteran. Although he survived his tour, it fundamentally altered his life for the remainder of his years, both physically and mentally. He died prematurely at age 59, perhaps from the effects of Agent Orange.
I was surprised at the emotion I felt at the wall. It is such a simple design, but so powerful when you see all of those names stretching on for an inconceivable length. It's a sobering thought that our country really did that to so many of our young men. This was bought even more acutely to my attention by an audio recording I made at the wall. I heard more than one spirit voice saying, "God hates me," It became my mission to prove to the spirits that it was not true.
We performed the crossing at the medicine wheel at the Lodge at Sedona. Joining us was Crystal StarrWeaver, a spiritual tour guide and shop owner in Sedona. She guided us through an elaborate and profound ceremony at the medicine wheel. Certainly she has experienced her own amazing spiritual journeys and willingly shares her wisdom. There was only six of us there for the ceremony, but when it was over it was -at the time- the second largest earthbound spirit crossing event in the history of the planet, surpassed only by the previous Sedona crossing.
