For the past seven weeks I’ve been taking a wonderful workshop with Sandra Ingerman about connecting to Nature Spirits. We’ve journeyed to many animal, plant, elemental and other ancient beings. One of the journeys we did in class was to connect with a mountain. In my journey I asked if I could visit the deva of Mary’s Peak, which is part of the Coast Range that watches over the town of Corvallis from the west. I’ve wanted to connect with the deva since reading Grandma’s Song of Healing, by local author Harry MacCormack. In it he says that the local indigenous people of the area knew that the mountain has the power to attract spiritually aware people to the area. When I read that it resonated as truth within me.
I feel I was called specifically to Corvallis four years ago. Spirit (my general word for spirit guides, helpers and the universal Source of All That Is) arranged my journey here very precisely, and directed me to this exact place, though originally my plans were to move south of here to Eugene. I have met so many other spiritual practitioners, healers and lightworkers who got the same call to come to Corvallis within the past several years. It’s quite remarkable, as I truly had no idea I would be moving here until a few months before I got here. Others I meet say the same was true for them.
In the journey as the drumming began, I reached out to Mary’s Peak. It rose up out of the landscape as a deep green being with vortexes of red, purple, pink and gold moving within it. I asked her if she brought me here. She said yes, and I thanked her, as I love it here. She told me she has brought many others. Her vortexes are fractals, she extends them out across time and space to interact with our fractals in our soul/energy fields and helps to draw us here. We in turn connect to others' fractal lines as we interact with each other. She called it “Fractal Destiny.”
She showed me that she is on ley lines in the Willamette valley that she likens to energetic acupressure points on the earth. Activation occurs on the lines from many things, but us being here on them and having our circles, ceremonies, songs and dances really affects them. In turn, our personal intention to do our work, shine our light, connect with nature and helping spirits and one another has an amplified effect due to the location of these energy lines and points. That is one reason she calls us here. That and the fractal destiny we have with one another as we swirl through interactions we have with each other and our community.
I’ve been thinking a lot about fractal destiny since then, and about how we all get to where we need to go in our lives. When Spirit nudges or pushes us strongly toward an area and we experience remarkable synchronicities and events supporting that, we can trust the message. The ease and flow with which it happens are signs that we are fully supported. Of course we have free will and we can choose to stay where we are, but we shouldn’t be surprised if the opportunity comes around again. Spirit has many ways of getting us to where we need to be!
