The Astral and Burning Man
I have been to burning man 3 years in a row. I have 2 dear friends that introduced me and helped me navigate my way there. One is a photographer and often photographs for burning man, the other has created a small art project on the playa for 10 years in a row. I got to work with her on that art when I was there.
I am a clairvoyant. A seer. We all have these abilities, they are the abilities of spirit. I began to learn how to work with mine for self healing 37 years ago. For the past 35 years I have been teaching others how to not only access these abilities but to manage these sensitivities and even grow and become more capable because of them.
This is what I do for a living. In a given day I show a soul how to see themselves and others as spirit. It is rewarding and challenging. I have done this with my husband everyday of my adult life.
When I first heard about BM I was thrilled. It sounded like there was something for me there. When it was time for me to go, I went for it. I packed my little truck and like Elly Mae, headed off for 8 days on the playa.
The 3 years I have attended have changed my life in so many ways. I don’t party, I don’t do drugs. rarely have a drink. I love riding my bike, I love the people and the art. I love the BM tenants, I am home there.
Recently I was teaching a class on the astral and the astral body. As we were looking at the levels of the astral and the many many playgrounds there I came upon a lovely awareness. Burning Man is levels of the astral plane manifest on earth. The freedom we experience at BM of radical inclusion. The expansive permission to push your boundaries and explore different things. As I was showing the class how to direct themselves to where they want to go to and what they want to explore on the astral it reminded me of reading through the huge book of events as BM. If you can think of it you can find it at BM. If you can think of it you can find it on the astral!
What an incredible space we have created. Not that I was a part of creating it, but truly we all are a part in creating it. Each person that is inspired by this event in any way, has a part in it’s creation. My visits to the playa are over. For Now? Who can be sure. but I am following the directive to live BM here in your daily life, and that I try to remember. Radical inclusion, do what you want as long as it does no harm to others, share, explore beyond your boundaries, Have fun.
