N's adventure to IKH The Holy City in the Aethyrs!MORE
I traveled to IKH by way of passing through ZIM and the gardens again and taking the right hand path that I had seen previously. IKH presented itself to me as a giant swirling sphere of gray dust and I walked into it and found myself on a dusty road. Off in the distance I saw a stone castle with a black tower rising up like a four sided pointed spire ..it resembled a picture I had seen on a cover of a Stephen King book called 'The Dark Tower". Sitting in the middle of the road was a compass and also a bar magnet with a "+" and a "-" sign on opposite ends. I picked the compass up and the needle pointed directly at the black tower and when I turned directions, it would swing to stay pointed that way. I bent down and looked at the magnet and the "-" end pointed in the same direction and the "+" end pointed in the opposite way. When I tried turning the magnet around the other way, it corrected itself to point the way it was originally.
I walked towards the tower though a gray and dusty flat land that was like a dried up prairie. Along the way, a path branched off to the right and led to what looked like an ancient walled Japanese city with wooden buildings, shrines, temples and pagodas and I could hear shouts and the clanging of metal coming from there. However, the stone castle with the dark tower off in the distance seemed to call to me and I kept following the road to there. When I got there, I saw the castle and tower sitting right on the edge of a vast .... chasm I guess is the best word but it was like being on the edge of the Grand Canyon but 100's of times more vast. As I got closer I saw nine dragons lined up in a row along the edge of this chasm right next to the base of the tower. They seemed very agitated and they would stand at the very edge of the chasm, staring off into the empty space and roar and bellow out huge blast of fire. It seemed to me that there was something out there that they were warning to stay away and I thought that was where I was supposed to travel next, but there was no way I wanted to do that! ... going out into that empty space seemed like the last thing I would want to do. I thought if that was the Abyss out there, it made crossing the Abyss in the TOL seem like crossing a busy highway.
I turned and headed back to the ancient Japanese city and went inside the walls surrounding it. Inside I saw many samurai warriors in different training's ... long swords, hand to hand, wooden staffs, bow and arrows, long spears and 3 pronged metal tridents. A monk came up to me and told me to follow him and led me to a small shrine with a small dripping water spout above a small pool. He had me sit in front of it and handed me a sword and told me that when I could cut the falling water drop in exactly half with the sword, that I would be ready for my crossing. He then said he would be back and left me. I tried and tired to swing the sword to cut the drop of water when it fell but was not able to do it. I started counting how long it took the drop to form and fall and it was exactly 9 seconds and then I would swing the sword then, but always missed it still. After some time, the monk came back and said that my problem was that I was trying to use my mind and that I needed to close my eyes and feel the water drop. I tried doing that but had no luck and he said that I should leave and come back and try again. Then I popped back.
I got the distinct feeling that I needed to visit the towers before venturing to the pillars. So I hopped on my motorcycle at the transit hub and headed to the towers first. When I arrived I there was a doorkeeper at each of the towers. Come to think of it he almost seemed like the same guy at both towers... maybe twins? He told me a bit about what to expect in each tower and I decided I would get the light from the light tower and bring it to the darkness of the dark tower. The first person I met instructed me that I would need to accomplish a series of tasks to get to the top (thought it was a form of Sandolphan but could it have been metatron?) He pointed me towards a huge winding staircase and a short way up was my first stop. There was a monk sitting in the lotus position holding an acorn. He instructed me to sit in meditation until I levitated the acorn from his hand. Once I accomplished this he disappeared and I was left sitting there observing the acorn floating in front of me for quite some time. Eventually I realized my test was not done, I had to concentrate on the acorn until it cracked and began growing into a tree. This took a great deal of effort initially and then I got it. The burgeoning tree was send out of the tower to grow in the soil somewhere. The point of this task was to improve my focusing abilities. I continued up the tower and came to a enormous room! Like bigger than any sports stadium. In the room was a dragon and my task was to learn to ride the dragon. It was rough at first but then I found a way to resonate with her psychically and she let me mount her properly. She took off, it was bumpy at first because of the waves that whipped through her body as she flew but with practice we got in sync, then eventually we flew out of the tower and around the surrounding area then returned. Task complete, the point of this one was to enhance my courage ability. I again ascended the stairs and came to a mirror. In the mirror I saw a very powerful version of myself, balanced, noble, strong and wise. A master of the elements and of energy itself. I stared into the mirror until I started to feel this version of myself begin to emerge from within me. Task completed
Feeling greatly empowered I continued to the top of the tower where I found a large tuning fork awaiting me. It was sticking straight up similar to Excalibur. I grasped it and removed it which sent visible vibrations out in every direction. There was a blue glowing energy to them. I knew it was then time to head to the Tower of Dark. I greeted the doorkeeper and headed in. I was first met with a series of rather gruesome images and beings which were not particularly happy or friendly. I tapped into the extreme focus from before and soon these images vanished. I continued up the stairs. I came to another huge room filled with fire and brimstone. I saw an orb sitting in the center on a pedestal. I knew I had to retrieve it but the fire was scorching my hot and swirling all around. I summoned my Dragon friend who surprisingly met me in the room. I mounted her and together we dove through the fire and destruction and swooped at last to retrieve the orb which basically desegregated thereafter. I then returned to the stairs and began to climb. I came to a mirror. The version of me inside was much different than before. It appeared lazy, despondent, out of shape, and he was just lounging heavily on a gross couch. I thought “what in the world is this!?” It was quite disturbing to see myself that way. Then I remembered the tuning fork that I had strapped to my belt. I wielded and struck it, I sent the waves into the mirror where they engulfed this lower version of myself. The energy radiated through him and he began to change. The couch disappeared along with all of his grossly unhealthy snacks. He stood up and began to appear much cleaner and stronger. His eyes cleared up and he was lively. Not quite like my current self and certainly not like my higher self from the other mirror, but, I saw him rise up several levels of consciousness until he was above the negative forces that had been pulling him down. He was at the very base level of positive energy, and that was enough for him at this time. I felt my own base level of consciousness rise a bit, and I felt more clarity in my thoughts and vision. Task completed. I ascended to the top of the tower where I saw the orb materialize on a podium in the center of a very dark room. I again struck the tuning fork and sent it’s powerful vibrations into the orb. It began to glow and then shine brightly, shooting light in every direction. My tuning fork began to glow extremely bright itself and I felt a large surge of power merge into it as bolts of lightning struck it from the energy blasting around the room. It almost felt as if the tower itself began to shake. Things settled down eventually and I placed the tuning fork back in its holster. My time here was done, the tuning fork was mine to keep. I headed out of the tower and mounted my motorcycle to head to the pillars... I will continue this report later because it is time for me to prepare for work. Thanks for listening
I took a trip to LEA today. I was walking along the beach and saw a woman near the lifeguard station who was very ethereal. she was all white and almost transparent. i really just saw the outline of the human form, it was mostly all white and wispy. she seemed very gentle, pure, and innocent. she was from the nearby OXO city but came there because she wanted to help others. i think she was not content just staying in OXO and was looking for something more. she had been there some time and wanted to return to the city so i said i would take up her position so she could return. i didn't make any promises about staying on though. so the woman then went off.
later at night i saw a ship coming from the city looking for the woman. i think it was her family. i told her she was already on her way back. they were concerned she wouldn't be able to make it across the waters. i told her they can head back and i will go out and look for her. i had the sense that she lacked the experience of being around dark energies and didn't know how to handle them. she was pure but after being outside OXO for so long she could be subject to attack and not know how to handle it. i rode out across the waters which had a bit of a foreboding feeling to them and eventually went into a cove where i found her. she had some attack and the purple dark energy was going up her leg. i took her aboard my boat and sent some healing energy to her. eventually i went back to the lifeguard station and told her to wait there until she was healed and sent her healing energy. the next day i told her i would take her to OXO myself and put a shield of protection around the boat. i told her i've been around dark energies before and can handle it. so we set out and eventually made it to OXO. we both entered the bubble around the city and as we entered she seemed to vanish.
