Sound Baths and Tuning Fork Therapy

A while back I mentioned having a wonderful experience called a sound bath. Susan Snyder, who lives not too far from me and is the webmaster for Life Is A Journey…Not A Guided Tour, shared information for a local sound bath practitioner, Jennifer Durant. Like Celine Weiss, the practitioner who conducted my wonderful experience in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, Jennifer is a Reiki Master who also does sound healing. Jennifer is located in Bellingham, Washington. Her website is

Susan said about Jennifer: She’s not only a Reiki Master but is very intuitive and uses her gifts also for nutritional counseling and sound healing. She can be contacted through her website She resonates for me these days.

If you want to treat yourself, and you are living in the Pacific Northwest, Jennifer comes well recommended.

Focused Creation Session, May 5, 2022

Tonight, Higgins lead me and my sister-in-law in a meditation for rain in New Mexico. New Mexico has been on fire for quite some time now. Shannon mentioned today, via phone, that the wind is spreading the fires. Since it rained here all day, I was feeling rain pretty well and Higgins suggested that we do a session tonight, while I’m still feeling rain.

The entire meditation and phone call took fewer than thirty minutes. Higgins started by bringing us to a level they called Middle C. Once we were flowing this easily achievable energy, they switched to having us feel rain, starting with a pitter-patter of rain and slowly increasing to a steady soaking rain. They had us allow the land of New Mexico to absorb the rain like a sponge and when the sponge was saturated, they had us focus downpours of rain upon the fires burning in New Mexico.

At one point, they stopped long enough to thank the fires for reflecting mankind’s current energetic focus and asking for the essence of fire to cooperate with us. Cooperating with us means the fire can’t burn and it seemed necessary to gain this cooperation.

Higgins poured rain energy across the state until all the fires were out. As we closed, it seemed there is some small area where there remains something that feels like smoldering embers. In general, the fires were cooperative in ceasing. Higgins stated that today’s meditation was a jump in, jump out sort of intentional creation session. It was very quick and hopefully very effective.

Meditation with Higgins on April 20, 2022

With the war in Ukraine ongoing I asked Higgins whether there was any more that we could do. If you will remember, we did fifteen meditations for Ukraine when the war began. After the fifteenth meditation Higgins said no further meditations were needed at that time and that they, Higgins, would begin a data collection process to determine whether or not the meditations were effective. Whether they were or were not, Higgins, it seemed, planned to review the data and make whatever adjustments to the energetic offerings that might be needed.

April twenty-first, I recorded this in my journal:

“I meditated with Higgins last night. They’ve been mostly absent since the meditations for Ukraine. Mariupol is under siege and the town does not appear to believe it can safely evacuate, nor win a 10:1 Russian invasion. So, I asked Higgins to do something and they meditated something they called ‘Middle C’, in reference to my resent sound bath.”

I remember this meditation as knocking me out, as in, I became very, very sleepy and quiet. I didn’t write much about it, in part because I went straight to sleep. Now, though, it seems worth writing about as the Russians decided to surround Mariupol rather than attack the steel plant where those who are left, whether civilian or military, are holed up.

This leads me to today. I asked Higgins what we can do to help Mariupol withstand the Russian siege. They said, “We will ‘meditate’ with you tonight. Invite a group if you choose. The topic will be, in essence: appetite for food fully sated, wonderfully comfortable, hanging out with friends, amusement, conversation, all fully sated to ‘fat’ or ‘butter’.

This meditation will be tonight. We’ll see what happens next….

Sound Bath

A short note today. I am traveling in Arizona and New Mexico and did a fun thing I hadn’t heard about before: I enjoyed a sound bath. Maybe sound healing is the technical name, but it felt like a massage, or soak in a warm bath.

On arrival I was invited by the healer, Celine Weiss, into a lovely room with a massage table in the center. the perimeter was ringed with drums, a gong, singing bowls and chimes. After a conversation during which we determined an intention for the session, she invited me to lie on the table. She began to tone these bowls around me, to drum and to use the gong. It was a lovely, remarkably relaxing hour.

Further Meditations for Peace in Ukraine?

Someone asked me today whether Higg(in)s will be doing more meditations for peace in Ukraine. This prompts me to share something they told me recently when I asked about more of these meditations.

Higg(in)s: When you request something from the Universe, the Universe always responds. This is absolute. Sometimes, perhaps much of the time, it seems as though the Universe does not respond. That is not true. The Universe always responds. Let’s explain how a request is placed.

The Universe, everything in it, vibrates. The frequency of the vibration tells the Universe something. It is information. And, because the Universe responds in like kind, the Universe responds with material offerings that vibrate in the same frequency range. You emit frequency when you are awake. You literally maintain an ongoing conversation with the Universe and the Universe responds all day long with material offerings equal to the frequency you emit.

The reason that it often seems as though the Universe is not responding to you is that you think wanting something and offering the vibrational equivalent of that thing are the same. They are not. Consider a vending machine. Let’s say Oreos are B4. You must press B4 to get Oreos. If you press B3 you won’t get Oreos. You’ll get something else. When you think the Universe is not responding, what is really happening is that you have ‘asked’ for the same thing over and over again thinking you are asking for something different, or you ‘asked’ for something but the vibrational equivalent you offered wasn’t quite equal to the thing you want, or you ‘asked’ appropriately but did not hold the frequency long enough to receive it.

Back to the recent meditations for peace in Ukraine. We do not need to have more meditations for peace because the Universe always responds to every request, and because we know that you offered the exact vibrational request because we helped you with that. The process now is to receive peace. The Universe is offering peace options, but you must allow peace by continuing to emit a frequency of peace or quite similar. This is the data we are collecting. We are monitoring how humanity connects to the essence of peace that your meditation group presented. Peace is available. Humanity must be able to tap into it.

How to Stop a War

***Dear Reader, just a hint– the part on stopping war is way at the bottom so if you don’t want to read the entire thing, scroll down.

Today I am revisiting Alain Rifat’s post from April 4, 2021, What Is Matter? I have read and reread it multiple times and each time I get the nagging feeling that there is something important they want to add. The first nagging feeling comes with the question, what is energy? They have stated multiple times that energy is produced in the play between positive and negative but that doesn’t really answer the question regarding what it is.

The second time I get a nagging feeling while reading this post when the author writes on the Higgs Boson and the Higgs Field. When the Higgs Boson was first discovered in 2012 I immediately began to wonder about the name Higgins. When recently they asked me to change the spelling of their name from Higgins to Higg(in)s I felt an aha! moment. There is something they are trying to share with me that I am not yet able to understand. The more I focus on it, the more elusive their response seems to be.

For now, it seems the best thing to do is move on to The Weirdness of Indistinguishability, published on Simulismblog, April 19, 2021. In this article, the author explains that there is no difference between a molecule that occurs naturally and one that is synthesized in a laboratory. The same is true for the atoms that comprise a molecule, and the particles that form atoms. Atoms are made of protons, neutrons, and electrons.

For example, water is a molecule made of H2O. That means two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. Hydrogen has the atomic number 1, meaning it is made of one electron. Oxygen’s atomic number is 8, so it is made of eight electrons.

Atoms can be broken down further into particles. The proton, for example, is made of three subatomic particles called quarks (an elementary particle). The electron is one subatomic particle called a lepton (also an elementary particle).

The author uses a simple metaphor for our understanding. If we were to deposit dollars in a bank and return later to make a withdrawal, the dollars you turned in may not be the dollars you receive back. But they are interchangeable.

Particles are like that. They are completely interchangeable. One is indistinguishable from another and cannot be marked the way a bill can be marked.

This is interesting because if one could take an atom apart to its constituent particles, those particles can go on to form something entirely different. For example, if one were to take two water molecules apart one would have four hydrogen atoms and 2 oxygen atoms. Theoretically, if one then put the four hydrogen atoms together again with the 2 oxygen atoms, the products that could be made are the previous 2 molecules of H2O (water) OR 2 molecules of hydrogen gas (H2) and one molecule of oxygen gas (O2).

One step further, if you took the hydrogen and oxygen atoms apart to their elementary particle level, they could then form into new atoms.

Now….why Higg(in)s had me write all that out….

Higg(in)s: There are fundamental building blocks. Your body is made of these. A tree is made of these, as is a rock. Your body is like a car. A portion of your soul gets in your body and ‘drives’ off. We’ll call this aspect of you the Little Soul. Your body carries Little Soul around wherever Little Soul desires to go.

As this Little Soul, which is you in your body, wanders around Earth interacting with things, thoughts are stimulated. These thoughts interact with the Higgs Field, which is everywhere. When a thought carries enough power, it interacts with the Higgs Field in such a way as to cause a particle within the field to gain mass. (It is not true that energy is neither created nor destroyed. Energy is created with your thought. We do not know whether energy can be destroyed, but it hasn’t happened yet.)

This next part is not entirely correct, but for the sake of your understanding, this particle will now continue to exist, and as other Higgs particles are stimulated to gain mass upon the same topic, they are attracted to one another and when it becomes large enough it must take physical form. It is like water molecules in the sky coalescing to form a raindrop.

This is an important understanding because it has practical applications. When you, the Little Soul in a body, focuses on a thing, anything, you give it form. If you withdraw your attention from that thing, it will eventually cease existing.

If you would like to stop having war, then you must withdraw your attention from war like activities and violence, and instead focus upon that which you would have. You are all having a very hard time with this because most of you think of peace as the absence of war (peace is a thing in and of itself), and because you do not recognize the relationship between your attention to violent television programs (including watching it on the news programs), movies, games, and toys, and the violent world you exist within.

You all have created war. If you will have peace you must begin to focus intently upon peaceful things. You must begin to act in peaceful ways. Peace must be built, and it can be built by drawing it forth from the Higgs Field with your thought. The old way of war will fall apart into its constituent elementary particles and be ready to form a new and more supportive way of life. Keep in mind that that thing which you focus upon has been built in the Higgs Field well before you see evidence of it on Earth.

Overview of Meditations for Ukraine

Beginning February 25 and continuing through March 12, I lead meditations designed to bring peace to Ukraine. A total of fourteen people joined me during this time frame. We meditated as a way to help Ukrainians defeat the Russian invasion. We also used this as a way to bring Higg(in)s back: to sort out what we will do together in this next phase of Higg(in)s, and how we will work together to accomplish it.

  • February 25-28, Peace
  • March 1, Comfort
  • March 2-3, Peace
  • March 4, Freedom
  • March 5, Compassion
  • March 6, No-fly Zone
  • March 7, Comfort
  • March 8, The Golden Zone (Surety and Eager Expectation) Globally
  • March 9, The Golden Zone, Globally, and Specifically for Water (Knowing the Body Is About 70% Water)
  • March 10, Peace, Globally
  • March 11, Global Harmony and Inclusivity, and Thriving, Harmony, and Individual Expression
  • March 12, Stablization of Ukraine

On the 12th of March, Higg(in)s explained that this would be the final meditation of the series. This surprised me. I assumed I would continue this offering until the conflict in Ukraine was resolved. Instead, Higg(in)s said they will collect data regarding the effectiveness of our meditations. They will use this data to make whatever adjustments need to be made. Higg(in)s also thanked the group for their assistance. Higg(in)s also used information gathered from the individuals participating to improve their ability to connect with individuals during such meditations.

I am thankful to each of you who joined me for this. It is important to me to have a safe environment in which to practice bringing them forth. I look forward to this new Higg(in)s, and to the Knowledge Phase which they have said from the beginning is their reason for interacting with us.

Meditation for No-fly Zone in Ukraine

Ukraine has been clear in their repeated request for aid in the form of a no-fly zone, so Higg(in)s created one. Higg(in)s asked us to find the energetic equivalent of comfort. While we found this comfortable energetic feeling inside ourselves Higg(in)s asked us to find something positive about Vladimir Putin. They suggested that he is intelligent, some would consider him handsome, and he is clearly able to focus powerfully on achieving what he wants.

The reason for finding something positive about Putin is to eliminate resistance between him and us and the vibration we are placing.

We then lifted off as balloons with no wind resistance and we floated and bobbed playfully to Switzerland to pick up our friend there and then on we finished the journey to Ukraine. In Ukraine, we floated together, but a little differently than usual. Usually, we link metaphorical arms. Today, they ‘tethered’ us together like a child or dog on a leash so no matter which direction we moved, we all stayed together but it allowed us latitude to move playfully as they slowly inched our energy from comfort all the way to peace and then freedom.

As we swirled in the skies above Ukraine, we radiated this energy all around. Higg(in)s described it as a thick layer of peanut butter that we spread over the region. After achieving the equivalent of freedom, and spreading it around for a while, they let the lovely energy wash through each of us, through our skin, bones, lungs, feet, etc…Whatever the final endpoint is that Higg(in)s looks for, we must have achieved it soon after that, because they floated us home.

We were nine people tonight and the entire meditation was about an hour.

A Meditation for Compassion in Ukraine and Russia

Tonight, we once again got our energy synchronized and floated slowly to Ukraine via far eastern Russia. We started with a slow steady rainlike sprinkle of comfort and continually increased our vibrational level and simultaneously the volume of emotion that we sprinkled across Russia. Higg(in)s described us as a storm cloud that rained, first comfort, and finally compassion.

We spent the entire ‘trip’ across Russia increasing our vibrational level to compassion so that by the time we arrived at St. Petersburg, we rained compassion at a pretty good pace. We were stretched border to border so we covered Moscow at the same time. Higg(in)s said the point of ‘raining’ compassion was to put out emotional ‘fires’. Their choice of compassion as tonight’s emotional equivalent was to lay a foundation where human mistakes can be corrected, where corrections will be accepted.

After a good soaking of these two cities, Higg(in)s moved us to Ukraine where we took up posts on the borders and surrounded the country. We poured and poured on Ukraine while occasionally moving one position to the left. There were seven of us tonight and we moved six times to the left, each time Higg(in)s assured us this is so that our own particular version of compassion was shared.

We then began to spread out, like pizza dough they said, so that eventually we surrounded the Earth in one big thick cloud of compassion and rained upon the Earth. When we were done, they has us surround Ukraine once again, this time to give special compassionate attention to the nuclear plants. Higg(in)s told us these plants are not happy to be abused. Apparently, the threatening way Putin talks about things nuclear is unpleasant to the nuclear plants. They do not want to be a part of causing harm.

We then floated gently back to our homes by completing a circuit of the Earth, via Europe, the North Atlantic, the East Coast of the U. S, across the Midwest and finally back to our chairs.

Everyone had a chance to share about their experience before we closed for the evening.

Meditation for Freedom in Ukraine, March 4, 2022

Tonight’s meditation was slightly different. Higg(in)s did some teaching first about learning to defend ourselves in a posture of non-violence. They asked us to bring our energy together on our own and then to lift ourselves to comfort which each person was able to do easily. The group was five including me.

Once each person achieved comfort on their own, they helped us all move up to peace a step at a time. Higg(in)s explained about believing and knowing, then safety and security. When we reached peace, Higg(in)s did something quite interesting. Higg(in)s moved us from peace to freedom and back multiple times. They said peace and freedom are, generally speaking, equally high levels of vibration but there is a difference, a half-step I think they described it as. They moved us back and forth until each person could tell the difference between peace and freedom. Freedom, they were able to share with Higg(in)s, feels a little lighter and Higg(in)s seemed pleased that they could tell the difference.

Higg(in)s then began pouring energy into us. They described us as aerodynamically designed balloons on a magic carpet experiencing no wind resistance, flying north from here to Bellingham, then north along the coast of Canada to Alaska. From Nome, Alaska we flew across the Bering Strait to Far East Russia. All along the way we sprinkled fairy dust over the land and this fairy dust is the vibrational equivalent of freedom. Freedom, Higg(in)s explained, is our birth right. Freedom is freedom of spirit. I cannot replicate what they said, but I understood freedom in those moments. Clearly, freedom is not about whether or not you have to wear a mask.

We floated across Siberia all the way to St. Petersburg, sprinkling freedom as pixie dust all along the route. We spent several minutes in St. Petersburg before floating to Moscow. We also spent a few minutes at Moscow. Then we floated south to Ukraine and here they really began to pour it on, repeatedly doubling the energy they were giving us. They described us as vast rain clouds of peace and freedom reaching across the entirety of Ukraine. We floated east to west, highlighting the Russian tanks, the recently seized nuclear plant, and Kyiv. We dumped feet and feet of freedom pixie dust on these sites.

Eventually we finished with Ukraine and made a speedy flyby starting with Finland, Norway, and Sweden and covering the entire European area down to Italy with freedom pixie dust, before flying across the North Atlantic and back home.

This was an especially lovely, albeit tiring, meditation. I think many of us were feeling exhausted by the end. It lasted nearly an hour and a half.

During last night’s meditation, which I did not post on, we became peace and radiated like the sun, irradiating everything in our path with peace. Higg(in)s likened the energy we placed to nuclear radioactivity and said it would radiate peace in Kyiv for one hundred thousand years.
