@NightmareTales is one of the most brave and flexible yogi I follow on Instagram. His post will make your stomach drop and confidence rise. Pushing the limits to test your ability is the only way to know your max! … If there even is one. He inspired me to climb and test my balance. Balance I barely can keep on flat surface! … Stay In Focus
Reporting by Philip Poupin For over 6500 years the laborious search for a semi-precious stone, lapis lazuli, never stopped. Among dynamite, sweat, luxury and wars, the history of lapis lazuli over time included the intrusion of the great figures of history. The Sumerians until the commander Massoud, through Michelangelo and Marie Antoinette all have in common: the search for the precious dark blue. An explosion rips the silence of the mountains of Badakhshan, an arid province of northeastern Afghanistan. Then another, until completing seven outbreaks, each followed by a deafening echo that makes the visitor believe that is in the midst of a relentless combat.
I definitely appreciate what some have dedicated their time to. Getting Lapis Lazuli to people like us. Before I found this site I never knew that getting lapis out of the mountains were so much trouble.
In the shamanic belief every thing is alive and carries with it power and wisdom. Power animals are an essential component of shamanic practice. They are the helping spirit which add to the power of the shaman and are essential for success in any venture undertaken by the shaman.
Shamans believe that everyone has power animals – animal spirits which reside with each individual adding to their power and protecting them from illness, acting similarly to a guardian angel. Each power animal that you have increases your power so that illnesses or negative energy cannot enter your body. The spirit also lends you the wisdom of its kind. A hawk spirit will give you hawk wisdom, and lend you some of the attributes of hawk.
I remember having a vision of walking through a narrow hall and looking to the right. There was a mirror and my head was of a coyote. I seemed to have a feathered “Hat” on … the multi-colored feathers appeared to be sticking out going up running along the edge of my head. It was a quick flash but that memory always stuck with me.
Coyote’s Wisdom Includes:
Understanding that all things are sacred–yet nothing is sacred
Teaching that only when all masks have fallen will we connect with the Source
Singing humans into being
Childhood trust in truth
Teaching us how to rear our young
Ability to laugh at one’s own mistakes
Placing the North Star
Teaching balance between risk and safety
Find which animal spirit you identify with. Even if you have felt yourself become one in your dreams or visions.
The original Notes to what I experienced below…. a bit more detailed I think.
June 12 2013
InFocus247- Journey Mental trip saw one of the most beautiful train stations in the middle of the jungle the train tracks were gold or the reflection of the tracks looked gold from the sun reflecting off of them, After going through a combination of lights and shapes it seemed to be a transitional stage kaleidoscope like effect going from place to place soon after i was climbing up what seemed to be a tree but it was very tall it lead into the sky it was so tall. Once i climbed high enough i saw i was able to see a very beautiful river/ocean the feeling gave me a rushing sense of happiness and I felt my heart expanding it made me take a deep breath it felt as if I were there. The next sensation or urge I felt was to jump, so i jumped off of the tree into what seemed like a sky dive i remember two entities flying after me I felt a brief thought of fear as if I weren’t supposed to jump but water was below so I reassured my self I was ok but not only that… I can fly so I began flying I flew under two bridges and then remember soon after standing by some steps and something or someone told me to go up the stairs and I didn’t want to but it insisted I do so I went up. I remember three sets of doors I was allowed in the first two, it felt as if I was following two people. I tried to go in the third door but it was blocked by a a dark dense energy. I remember trying to penetrate the door twice but it pushed me out. The feeling was almost like I was a magnet and there was a second magnet in the door so when I pushed to go in mentally I was pushed back out. I was fascinated with being limited yet confused why i could not enter this door. I noticed that the door formed into a scorpion like purple being and I remember telling it I’m not afraid of you but also getting the feeling that it is not about fear but about respecting the boundaries of sacred places I may not be ready to experience yet. It stung me on my right leg and I felt in the physical part of my body after the initial sting it sent three to four jolts in my legs. I turned around and began moving away from the door/scorpion entity then the same entity(I think) that insisted I go up to the doors helped me go back down the stairs and told me I don’t belong here you do not know what you are doing open your eyes and return. I opened my eyes and I was back.
Only observe don’t be so quick to in force your will on the astral plane until you fully understand the effects of doing so.
Saw a labyrinth of flowers but I chose not stay inside and I flew above it
The concert of peace and free energy
Breath is like the singing bowl a steady consistent pattern and rhythm you will be able to feel a steady vibration also raising it as well
The first sound I remember hearing was a gong it struck me as weird being I was in Brooklyn and no gongs were near by to my knowledge but I felt as if I was in two places at once and now feeling the sound/vibration of the second place I’ve seemed to meditate into.

This is one of the books I am currently thumbing through. It was passed on to me by my father. I began reading it yesterday, Im about half way through and it is very fascinating. The first book I read by this author was The Alchemist which was very deep. The author Paulo Coelho has a way of painting scenes using his characters emotion for paint, but leaving space on the canvas for you to draw your own conclusions and insights. I will leave a few quotes from the book below. Grab a copy or score a download!
“There are moments when troubles enter our lives and we can do nothing to avoid them.
But they are there for a reason. Only when we have overcome them will we understand why they were there.”
“If you have a past with which you feel dissatisfied, then forget it, now. Imagine a new story for your life and believe in it. Focus only on the moments when you achieved what you desired, and that strength will help you to get what you want.”
“Stop thinking about life and choose to live it”
“This was freedom; to feel what the heart desired with no thought to the opinion of the rest… She was free, for love liberates.”
“All life battles teach us something, even those we lose”
The Moeraki Boulders are unusually large and spherical boulders lying along a stretch of Koekohe Beach on the wave-cut Otago coast of New Zealand between Moeraki and Hampden. They occur scattered either as isolated or clusters of boulders within a stretch of beach where they have been protected in a scientific reserve. The erosion by wave action ofmudstone, comprising local bedrock and landslides, frequently exposes embedded isolated boulders. These boulders are grey-colored septarian concretions, which have been exhumed from the mudstone enclosing them and concentrated on the beach by coastal erosion.
If you are located in the Metro Atlanta- Georgia are or close feel free to stop in on a nice Yoga session with @SuperDopeHeroin. Sessions are every Tuesday at 6:00 PM. I typically run on sp/cp spiritual people time so i managed to make it out yesterday for the last few minutes of the session. As I came out of a shoulder stand I look up and there is 3 or 4 Falcons flying very close above chasing each other. It was exciting opening my eyes to falcons almost coming close enough to jump up and grab if I were 10ft taller , I wish I could of snapped a shot of them.
