|Shamanic Hand Drum
The hand drums
caught my eye, especially this one. It was a sixteen-inch
octagonal drum with an intriguing design. I looked at the
price tag of $220, frowned and walked away. But the drum called
I returned, picked up the drum, and examined
the artwork. Resisting the urge to spend $220 on a hand drum,
I again put it down and walked away, only to have my new and
insistent friend call me back once more. Responding to the
call, I returned to study the drum, then set it down and left
again, only to be called back and repeat the process once
more! Feeling thoroughly self-conscious at this point, I surveyed
the area to see if anyone was observing me. Luckily, no one
I took the drum in hand and selected a shoulder
carry case (another $60) with a striking Native American design
that reminded me of the beaded Indian belts we used to wear
as kids back in Brooklyn. Soon I was at the cash register,
thinking What the hell am I doing?
while nevertheless knowing that the drum wanted to belong
to me and that it was better for me to make the purchase than
not. About $300 later (after tax), the drum and case were

|BMW Key Ring Medallion
I initiated my own spiritual
journey in earnest by opening up to DP (Dead Person)
communications, past-life regressions, and shamanism. Along
the way, thru an incredible mystical experience (described
fully in Into the Mystic), 5 became my own personal "magic
number"most especially when appearing consecutively,
as 55, 555, etc. Soon thereafter, fives started to pop upas
an address on a house when I glanced up, as a phone number
on a truck passing by, and especially as part of a license
plate on a moving or parked caraccompanied by what I
came to identify as a special energy, together delivering
messages from Spirit.
|"555" Brand Pots
Sound strange? Well, that's because it is strange,
conceptually. What we are talking about essentially is a divination
encounter with Spirit providing information thru the spontaneous
appearance of magic numbers charged with a special energy.
But it happens!
For example, being handed a BMW key ring medallion
with 555 and 55 in the phone numbers, helped convince me that
I was on the right track in selecting a new car, despite my
"green" idealism and own misgivings. And the sudden
appearance of "555" brand pots while shopping in
a Chinese variety store on Christmas Eve validated that a
major life decision that I had made was the correct one.

The afterlife can be
a struggle at times. Indeed, when our loved ones cross
over, they (and eventually we) may have to go thru some tough
learning periods on the other side.
But here's the good newsour demonstrations
of love and caring on this side can help our departed loved
ones thru their difficulties over there.
All this I came to realize during a meditative
session when my deceased father came thru in need of help.
Displaying one of his notorious photos, taken
during World War II, helped him in his afterlife process.
