My visit with Golden Buddha on Mt. Shasta

Golden Buddha

I had an experience of great mystery to me, which showed me that we indeed have beings of Light on the “other side” who can assist us in our quest of enlightenment. Years ago, while visiting the sacred mountain of Mt. Shasta in northern California, I had a visitation in meditation that astounded me.  For many years this beautiful and powerful mountain had drawn me into its mystical spell.  I felt the magnetic pull to visit the mountain at least two times per year and each visit gave me food for thought and spiritual inspiration.

On this particular day, I had been in meditation almost the full day when I asked for a spiritual experience.  This I did often and found that when I would ask, I would be given what I call visions.  My encounters with the other realms are always very visual and I have a sense that I am actually in these realms experiencing beings and realities as clearly as if they were here in third dimension.  I did not have to wait very long before I “saw” in my mind’s eye two huge stone tablets looming before me that seemed to be about ten feet tall.  I call them tablets because for some reason they looked to me like the tablets on which the Ten Commandments were etched.  They were clearly functioning as gates or doorways.

I waited to see what would happen and soon the gates opened slowly and revealed a huge field of fire behind them.  I intuitively knew that there was something very important on the other side of the vast sea of fire and that I would have to go through the flames in order to find it.  This did not daunt me because I had been “through the fire” many times in my spiritual search and I knew I had the courage to forge on ahead.

I quickly made my way through the inferno.  Reaching the other side, I found two huge golden doors that also looked like tablets.  I waited until the doors slowly opened to reveal a small cave lined in gold also.  In the center of the cave sat Buddha, his legs crossed over each other in the lotus position.  This Buddha was made of solid gold but I knew that he was “alive” and could move and speak as if he was in third dimension.  Now, being raised Catholic, I had no real interest in Buddhism nor did I know anything about Buddha himself.  It was not that I recoiled from this expression of God but I just had no curiosity to seek information about it.

Mt. Shasta’s Sacred Spring

Mt. Shasta

Mt. Shasta

In August I was  in beautiful Mt. Shasta and this is what I wrote on August 3:  I have been here  four days now and each of the last three days have been called to the mountain.  I have spent hours gazing into the sacred spring crowning Upper Panther Meadows, which is resplendent with multi-colored wild flowers bursting forth with their radiance from the verdant soil.  This is a place to sit in wonder of the magnificence of nature, eight thousand feet above the expanse of the hills and valleys rolling out like a magic carpet full of treasures below.  It is one of the most magical places on earth to me.

My fascination with the spring kept me in a state of deep quite as I could perceive the gifts it had for me.  Every day I received its message. The water represented my soul.  I have always seen our soul energy as a liquid river of Light.  I see the Light coming from Source, through my crown chakra and moving steadily into my heart.  Then, if my heart is open, it can stream from that deep place of love and out into the world.

As I gazed into the spring and saw the water endlessly bursting forth from the earth herself, without hesitation or resistance, constant and so clear, I could feel that that is how it is when we are open to being the true channels of love that we are meant to be.  [Read more…]
