Only minutes from Seattle, Willows Lodge sits near the Sammamish River in the heart of Western Washington's wine country. Constructed with Douglas fir beams, both the indoor and outdoor buildings stand legendary. The lodge was made famous when one night, the great magician, Harry Houdini, flung a deck of cards into the air. No one expected that any would stick to the beams. But a special card, the Ace of Spades did, and stayed attached for 20 years! Enjoy the landscaping and see the winery right across the street, Chateau Ste. Michelle.

Brenda Riolo, a girlfriend I met in Hawaii, captures these flowers heart and soul at the Golden Gate Park Conservatory, one of the world's largest where you'll walk underneath stylish wooden beams and glass. The Conservatory sits on a small hill next to the De Young Museum and California Academy of Sciences. This building was prefabricated for a Santa Clara estate, but never made it out of the crates when he died in 1876. So, a group of San Franciscans bought it and then offered it to the City. It was erected in Golden Gate Park in the late 1870's. The Conservatory survived the 1906 earthquake, but caught fire in 1918. It was also closed in the mid-1930's to the mid-1940's. Then, in 1995 after a storm of 100 mph (160 km/h) winds shattered 40%, the Conservatory was closed until 2003.

Begin with the end in mind… Our newest work is to journey through Ceremony, Intimacy and Ancient Sacred Sites and we end by talking about using frequencies to block dark ceremonies.
Soon, you'll find uploads chapter-by-chapter of my new book, Ceremony, Intimacy and Ancient Sacred Sites. Here we stand in our physical universe and question if it's wrapped inside a spiritual universe and we just don't know it.
It’s waiting to connect with us and reaches out through nature and vortexes; openings within an environment of overlapping eco-fields. Maybe it's part of the divine plan for us to awaken into the spiritual universe, and we do this by piercing the veil. This happens to us throughout our lives when we encounter experiences like the ones I'm about to share with you.
