I was asked by Christy:

I never believed in “cyber energy” before. So….witchypoo….not in reference to your lump at all…but…any insights into the afterlife? From a psychic perspective? I’d LOVE to read your post about that–if you have one in you.

To address first things first: I have experienced cyber energy in the most wonderful ways, mainly by doing online healing sessions. The recipient does not need to be online for the healing to be effective, but sometimes there is just me and the recipient, and I will take them through a powerful meditation. It’s really miraculous for migraines, but can heal other conditions.

I read people’s energy fairly well online. My blog attracts very few types that do not harmonize with my energy. When I first went online, many years ago, I spent a lot of time in the spiritual chat rooms of IRC. There was a lot of silliness, fun and totally amazing occurences on the IRC. I did my first shamanic journey on the IRC, and made friends that I keep in contact with to this day, like Lucy in da Sky, and my photographer buddy, Joe Pennant. He was the first person I knew of that had a blog, and I was one of his first readers.

Through Lucy, I met the owner of a wonderful mailing list, which I now moderate. The list is closed to new members at the present time.

The afterlife? Well, I have spoken to people who have passed on, and they are mostly the way they were when they had a body.

I have also journeyed into the void, and it is how I imagine the afterlife to be. It is the essence of knowledge that we are all one, but there just are not any words to describe it. You can experience it through meditation or journeys while you still have a body, and I would encourage you to start with meditation.

I recognize that this is not a very satisfying answer, but I would like to assure you that you have nothing to fear. It is beauty.

I was born very near the feeding grounds of many large whales, at a time of year just before they head there in large numbers. I have always had a deep affinity for whales, but the finback, the finback whale is really special to me.

Only the blue whale is larger. The fin isn’t the showiest when it surfaces because it is a whale that doesn’t show it’s tail. If you saw one, you so wouldn’t care about the tail. These animals have presence. They are sentient beings. They know things. And the sheer size of them is astounding.

The one on the left? Fixing to dive under the boat. Thrilling.

The first whale watch I went on, I called the whale to me. We only saw a minke that day, but it surfaced right beside where I sat. Hardly anyone else saw it. I’m certain it heard my call, and came to investigate.

If you get the opportunity to go on a whale watch tour, jump on it! Best time for sailing is the earlier tours, around 10 am, before the wind and the chop comes up.

Whale has visited me in other ways as well, in the dreamtime.

Not too long ago, I lived on a cliff, overlooking the ocean. I dreamed a staircase of ice, leading from the ocean up to my bed. Swimming under the ice of the staircase was a procession of finbacks, each coming to me to share knowledge, then swimming back down. This event was another activation, an awakening of memories that I didn’t realize I had. Sort of like “I knew that. I just didn’t know I knew it until now.”

Soon after, I began to notice the clocks around me when they were at 11:11. One clock actually stopped at 11:11. I began to hook up with other healers in the early days of the internet, on IRC. We shared energy, and worked together to heal people and situations in the world, this world which suddenly became much smaller.

This dream was a precursor to the 11:11 activation, which was an initiation into the energies of the Archangel Michael. And then, all heaven broke loose.

But that is a tale for another day.
