Banyan Story Time & Ryver Updates
Welcome Peter and Virginia! Lovely to have you here.
If you are not aware, we meet in the ethers each New Moon under the Banyan Tree – a gathering of embodied masters and ascended masters hanging together – to BE together for a time.
Tomorrow I will have an audio recording of a message from Yogananda. It was my commitment to myself to not share anything I did not live, so after he delivered the message to me on Friday night (party!), I have been sitting with it and letting it seep into my bones. I must say it is much different than El Morya. All heart, all compassion, and so much belly laughter! I look forward to hearing your experiences with it. He truly shows up as a friend and not a teacher. I wouldn’t say it’s channeled but translatedJ - forever dodging that word channel.
Good day, friends!
I wanted to round up some of the Banyan Tree experiences from the New Moon gathering on January 16th. I will say this was an intense one for me. I felt my body vibrating in such a manner it was almost irritating and I asked El Morya, “Is this too much?”
He said absolutely not, that everyone could ‘handle it’ and that it would get smoother each month as our humans ‘caught up’ with us, something we are bringing along in this embodied experience.
El Morya added that everyone hanging out not in a physical body knew exactly what it was like to be in one and interacted with us in the most efficient and supportive way to the expansion which occurs under the Banyan Tree.
Joanna seemed to feel that too. She said, “(I) actually felt and saw the tree grow slightly...like it shifted in some way. Expand is probably a better word. Seemed like the place to be for many beings! Standing room only.”
I too felt there were many more beings who joined us on the 16th and 17th than in previous gatherings. I sense the word got out that we were inviting the ‘ascended masters’ to hang out, and people were beyond excited – especially Mark and other ‘new’ and ‘lesser known’ masters who are really eager to interact with us all.
Karen shares a great experience about Mark below, but first I am going to share a dialogue from our Ryver community. Thank you so much for being so open with all of us in this GRAND space.
“Under the Banyan tree I experienced singing with the group. We were singing in the Indian language and I remember not knowing the words but singing along with the tune as best I could. A beautiful Indian woman, didn't feel a name but would love to know who she was, dressed in a sari came up to me and said I could hear you, it was sweet like honey floating through, I was so surprised as I didn't feel anyone could hear me singing, I smiled gratefully and thanked her!” – Juls
“I’m in travel mode today and airport hang time. Last evening was beyond words. Soooo powerful it was almost uncomfortable. And I kept going between realities when the human would need to tend to some travel or packing item. I had many experiences of meeting and talking to various masters. I’ll bet the Indian woman was Quan Yin. And I hung at the back when we as a group gathered to listen. I felt I was being introduced and wired up to be able to handle the intense energies And, today I’m in this wonderful bubble.” – Ruth
“Aha... Juls & Ruth. I saw a woman whom I did not recognize that in hindsight may well have been Indian. And yes, quite possibly Quan Yin. That resonates. And Ruth, I felt the intensity as well. I saw a few other faces. I experienced mostly an energy exchange without comprehension of a message. Just a wee tidbit, perhaps because I was pondering speaking from my Soul to other Souls (as opposed to speaking from human) I was given the analogy it was like using Bluetooth. It transfers info from one being to another over consciousness waves.” – Karen
“I felt a lot of activity, aware of many, the joy and sense of communion going on. Sharing of essences and woke up this morning for first time all week not feeling tired, simply nice balanced harmony.” – Xanthe
“Yesterday and last evening were very powerful. I too, like Ruth would describe my experiences as uncomfortable at times - the magnitude of the energies was intense. I felt like I was being shown so much all at the same time. I know I met several masters and was being supported in the uncomfortableness at times by them. I cannot say I experienced any singing and dancing - although that would have been lovely! Today, I do feel expanded and rewired - although still a bit groggy.” - Deneen
“Obviously, I was there too, I have no definite memories except when I arrived that many were already in levitation. I enjoyed listening to the energy of the grass below. Tonight, I also experienced what it means to get out of the gravity of the old earth or mass consciousness.” – Este
“My experience also included a grand dose of dancing and singing...the first time was levitated freeform playful "dance/flight" under the tree and among the wide expanse of branches. Later that day I went to a sacred land on Whidbey Island where there is a large skull of a baby grey whale...it was the first I ever knew or saw this place and the sign there asked visitors to sing so I began to be sung...songs that were wordless and very distinct came through and resonated in my body and relationship to the whale bones. I was invited to move my 11-sided dance/song sanctuary to that place...not sure if it will happen in physical but just going there (it is called Earth Sanctuary) was mysterious and expansive EEE. Then later in the night/dreamtime, I had a number of intentional explorations of multi-locating...where my awareness dissolved from the physical and into the omnicentric...
This morning my mom came into my dance class and said I'd appeared as a "spirit" in her room in the middle of the night. It sort of scared her since she worried maybe I had died or left my body. I do not consciously remember specifically visiting her but she said I appeared kind of "perched' on the windowsill. She has never said or seen anything like this before to/about me.
Then also this morning a dear friend who paints my body in huge oil canvases first shared an image she was working on of me perched on a stone at the edge of a precipice -- looking about to leap. ....Some of you may remember that I had a dream featuring a very similar image earlier this week...
I posted it in the dreams forum. Somehow, my conscious awareness of going to the Banyan and other places besides the one I am physically located in...and encountering people in the other than physical realms of freedom are not as vivid while they are happening...
Yet, there are these ripples or reflections in the world that indicate through keen synchronicity that something of the Body of Beyond is certainly at play with this EEE and visiting of the Banyan.
I want to thank Lauren and El Morya and all of you for being here...I "get" what he said about needing others to encourage remaining in the body. If it were not for the love, compassion and care I feel...as if I AM Quan Yin....for all the embodied beings on earth...I can't imagine why I would stay.” – Momo
“My experience with the gathering this month was I started to feel a smooth pull to it a day or two before, like I was already there and then on the new moon night I clearly sensed like a very crowded spot buzzing with activity and people -if floating around may be considered and activity, although it's just a metaphor. You know when you have to go to a gathering with some friends and they're already there and your kind of late and sense them there before you get to the place... That kind of feeling. And I didn't have any particular dream or feeling in the morning.” – Guillem
“I've had a lot going on within me this week, so this momentarily slipped my mind. When I entered the Banyan tree gathering, one of the first beings that came up to me was Mark. He seemed quite animated and like there was something he really wanted to share. And I wanted to hear it! Perhaps I was trying too hard, but the message did not and has not come into my human consciousness. I'm sure it got transferred through the "Bluetooth" from Soul to Soul, but I am still curious as to what Mark was trying to get across.” – Karen
I would write more but the magnitude of the experience beyond linearity has not sunk in yet enough to find words. Thank you all for sharing.
