The Po`e Aumakua &
The Possibility of Group Souls
A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all! This will be early for those of you near by, and late for those far away in terms of sea mail. May those of you on the southern side of the equator be blessed with a day which is not too hot, and may those of you in Canada, England and Finland have a day not too cold. (Yes, I am proud to say that we have a very silent but much valued HRA in Finland. We have two in Mexico and used to have one in Venezuela, but after months of silence on his part, eleven of the Huna Vistas came back in a bundle, “Postage due 88 cents”. One in Brazil. None in Germany, France or Italy, but two good HRAs in Holland. Our one HRA who has for some years been swallowed up behind the “Iron Curtain” gets some of the issues sent to her, and about once a year writes a good letter.) Here in Vista we will have medium temperature, if weather runs true to form, and I will try my best to I send out at the 3 and 7pm TMHG sittings a mental picture in full color of a Christmas tree – perhaps our own, as we three “old buddies” still are blessed with childishness at Christmas and hardly ever miss getting a tree up and trimmed with lights and bangles, some of which we have treasured a long time.
THE TELEPATHIC MUTUAL HEALING GROUP WORK, by the way, continues without a break, the 3 and 7pm time now being set back an hour, what with the Daylight Saving advance being finished. I am happy to say that not a week goes by in which I do not receive a letter telling of benefits received in health, finances or social difficulties. Remember that all of the HRAs and their loved ones are eligible for participation. There is no charge, but I must say that the gifts sent to help the work by grateful participants have been a constant help for Cigbo and his cigar box work fund. All that is required is a signature in ink or a picture to give us one end of an aka thread so that contact can be made through me with the group at large, and through the”braided cord” which we activate with our sending of mana, with the “Great Company of na Aumakua”, of which our individual na Aumakua are believed to be a part. Acting as center for the Group, I need to know what is wanted so I can make with care a mental picture of the want FILLED, to present in its turn to the Light as I take up each signature or picture in turn during the 20 minutes of each sitting. A report is requested once every thirty days so that I can keep my prayer action picture in line with the condition or can stop work on any individual if it is no longer needed. Special projects may come in for prayer actions, as, for instance, help and protection in experiments with astral projection. Many requests come for work on slight or heavy “eating companion” or poltergeist trouble. Success here is not as good as desired.
MORE ABOUT THE PO`E AUMAKUA, or “Great Company of na Aumakua”, which we discussed in the last issue of the Huna Vistas, is being added to the pooled information on the subject. You will remember that in making Psychometric Analysis readings for one Aumakua Parental Pair, one of the HRAs appears to have made contact with the many na Aumakua associated with the one being measured. My own pendulum testing has taken me into the realm of what Thornton Wilder, in his book, The Bridge of San Luis Rey, called that of “vast, vague intimations”.
I am almost like the missionary who was described in a story, whose author I have forgotten. This missionary worked in Africa, and believed that every word in the Bible was true. His little world was flat and had heaven just above it. Hell was very close under one’s feet, especially under the bare feet of the people he labored to save from the burning. For him the world had been created only 5,286 years ago. After some years of working in the field, he chanced to come upon a scientific expedition equipped with a fine large telescope. He called, and was invited to stay the night in the camp and have a look at heaven. He was greatly fascinated by the idea, and when assured that gazing at heaven from a slightly closer point of view was in no was sinful, he could hardly wait for night to fall. He hoped that he might see at least a few angels walking on streets of gold. He hardly dared hope for even the smallest glimpse of God presiding from His throne. Night fell, clear and ideal for viewing. The telescope was focused, and he was seated so he could view the countless universes of the skies. A kindly scientist sat beside him, using the pilot scope and pointing out various points of interest. The missionary became more fascinated as he looked and listened. He could not understand much, but suddenly his mind snapped open enough to let him realize that he was seeing right through heaven and what he saw upset everything he had ever been taught or had ever believed. The night wore on. The scientist left him there, gazing and gazing. In the morning he was gone. He did not return to the mission, but began to wander aimlessly. At long intervals word would come of him. He had been here or there, silently helping in what ways he could, but never preaching a word. At night he would sit staring up into the sky and muttering infrequent words which were not connected so far as anyone could tell, and only at rare intervals made up such a senseless phrase as, “A million light years….”
“WHEN THE PUPIL IS READY, THE TEACHER APPEARS” is a saying which more and more seems to fit in with what is happening in our Huna research work. Or perhaps we should say that when we discover a new point of interest, information begins to pour in – or should I say, trickle in. In any event, one of the HRAs who had been sharing the Huna Vistas with a psychic friend, was the cause of a new contact which has had much to do with tossing me upward through a hole in heaven, and to set wandering in places perhaps not so vast as vague. Let me quote from a letter recently received from the new and valuable friend just mentioned.
“… All my life, bits and pieces of information have dropped into my mind somewhat like random stones falling into a plane. They come in various forms, often in mental pictures of remembered objects except for the realization that no prior experience has deposited them in my mind. The picture described above (of a white triangle suspended on a line between trees) came into my mind with strong overtones of importance related to Huna – after I had read your books – but without any explanation. Sometimes these things which come are years ahead of the experience which will explain them… For instance, it was perhaps twenty years before I heard of Huna, that I was introduced to the Company of na Aumakua. I will tell you about this and then close this too long letter. All this pouring out is because I have been so hungry to find someone who might know what I’m puzzling over.
“… Anyway, I saw the Company. I seemed to shift sensitivity and be taken to another place. There I saw a great Company of lights, each separate. I was told that each light was the Jehovah of a single human being. Off to the right, and behind me, I saw the outer edge of a great glow. I was told that this was God. Furthermore, that no mortal could view this magnificence and survive – that I might only view the very edge of His light. That when we thought we prayed to Him, it was really to our own personal small light. There the vision ended. You can imagine my confusion when I explain that I was reared in a fundamentalist hardcore faith, Disciples of Christ, which eliminated all steps between God and the human being in its orthodoxy. For my sanity, I followed what was already an established system. I tabled the experience mentally until such a time as I should know what to do with it. And then, years later, I found my Company in your books.
THE SAME WRITER, in an earlier letter, had, however, tossed me out into a world so vague that I can only try with my pendulum to search for aka threads which might lead to something only dimly sensed. She asked whether or not na kahuna had information on such things as “group souls” or “over souls” or whatever they might be called. With her psychic sensitivity she had been catching glimpses of some of these “somethings” who seem to overlook animal, plant and insect life in group chunks. What she wanted especially to know (and what threw me into frantic scratching through books and via pendulum) was whether or not the human animal had its body overlooked by some group soul as did ants. (She had been especially interested by ants, having heard a “something” speak to her as if from the ant over soul when she had sprayed a path which she had found being used by the ants as they came into her kitchen. The voice mockingly told her that they had another path which they could use. She searched, and, sure enough, found a second path.)
NA KAHUNA OF YESTERDAY, had much to say about the human-like spirits who presided over groups of living things. There was a “Queen” who inhabited a shark body at Pearl Harbor, and bossed all the local sharks. Other spirits were known, and arrangements had been made to have them let people alone in Hawaiian waters, even though some fishing was done and some sharks caught. I have told of these matters in my book, SECRET SCIENCE BEHIND MIRACLES, and have described the beliefs connected with the general system, but very briefly because I have never known much about such things. I quoted a report in the National Geographic magazine in which a writer told of a group of children in Samoa “calling the shark and turtle” with ritual chants long established. The shark and turtle both came when called. Then there was the matter of being able to appeal to the spirits overlooking winds and storms, and getting them to give more or less wind as wanted. In all races we find ritual prayers and dances addressed to spirits to get them to bring rain. The “Rain Dance” (or “Snake Dance”) of some of the Indians of the Southwestern states here in USA are famous examples of elaborate prayers mixed with strange rituals to call down spirit help in producing rain.
But the possibility that the human body is under the group soul type of guidance and supervision is what has started me running in circles like an excited hunting dog trying to pick up the scent of game. I have thought of the Aunihipili as being sufficiently wise to manage all the bodily functions, perhaps with the help of the Aumakua, but have given scant thought to the possibility that there might be over souls giving guidance to the body, perhaps to a number of bodies composing a group.
THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS NEW LINE OF INVESTIGATION LIES IN THE POSSIBILITY THAT IF THERE IS SUCH A GROUP SOUL, WE MIGHT FIND A WAY TO CONTACT IT AND GET HELP IN HEALING THE BODY. I feel that the need for healing is so constant and great that no stone must be left unturned in our Huna investigations.
ONE CAN IMAGINE a pattern to exist in aka substance, invisible and intangible in terms of the five senses, but open to being touched and examined by the Aunihipili, just as is a man and all his selves in the making of a Psychometric Analysis reading – the pendulum allowing the Aunihipili to report its findings. Jung, the famous psychologist, postulated such patterns and named them archetypes or “first forms”. He postulated a “Universal Subconscious” as the intelligence connected with the many patterns on which human myths and legends were based. Magnetic fields were discovered to surround plants and other living things by a gentleman in India several years ago. In order to explain how a plant or an animal may grow from a tiny seed and develop exactly in accord with its kind, we have theorized in a tentative fashion and said that while the seed may be tiny, it is surrounded by a field which is the mold and pattern to contain the growth. It becomes the “emergent field” as the seed grows into the mature plant or animal. What element of consciousness is connected with the field, is not specified by those who present the postulation, but it has been hinted that there is some such consciousness, and that it is not just a blanket consciousness of an unindividualized sort, having at least to be as well defined as the field with which it would have to work.
WE CAN FURTHER IMAGINE that if we could, via pendulum or some form of “introduction”, contact the pattern and the group soul behind it, we might have part of the secret of getting healing for the body. Suppose we are able in some way to identify ourselves with the perfect pattern which the group soul holds in, over or around our body, and that we can find a way to tune in to its vibrations, rhythms or whatever it may be that makes it what it is and has made us, in body, what we were from the moment of conception to the present hour. We may guess that we have fallen out of step in some way with the vibrations of parts of the pattern. We may guess, in addition, that the pattern has remained perfect and that by some action or other we can fall back into step, vibrate correctly in all our parts, and become healed, slowly or even miraculously. Perhaps we might use the vibrations of sound in chants, or in light and color, even perfumes, to help throw the body back into the rhythm and vibration which would allow a reentry into the pattern from which we have for various reasons stepped partly out. Do you see how the VAGUE INTIMATIONS collect around the speculations? One thing leads us to another, and more and more complications confront us as we try to imagine how things could work.
THE PATTERNS seem to me to have been the first step in creating living things. The Intelligence or Intelligences planned things and drew up plans, if they work as we do at our level. Then, after the blueprints were finished, the molds or patterns were made, and the work of a complete foundry commenced, the molds being filled and the material objects cast in all sizes and shapes, all alive and evolving. As we look at the evidence of evolution around us, we see in the human fetus the evidence that man came up through the lower kingdoms from worm to fish to man.
We conclude that because we evolve, the patterns must change gradually. This very strongly suggests Intelligence at work behind the patterns at every step of the upward way.
The animal fetus shows its evolutionary course, as does that of man, but there comes a point in the human development at which bodily evolution seems to have come to a stop and some mysterious evolutionary leap was accomplished. Man ceased to be an animal and began to have inductive reason. Huna tells us that at this point the Auhane was added to the lesser creature to produce the end product of the Plan, a man. Now give this Auhane an aka body as well as a “self”, and try to picture the pattern which will include him, or stand beside him. Does he have a group soul as does the body or body plus Aunihipili? Must there be a group soul to hold a pattern for the Auhane to keep it running true to kind? If so, then must we postulate a group soul for the aka preservation of the Aumakua? Where do we stop, once we get started? And did the hen or the egg come first? The mind is a very limited tool when it comes to facing such problems.
WE MAY ASK WHAT THE ANCIENTS BELIEVED on these scores, and turn back to the Theosophical gleanings from the muddled conclusions of early and late India. Perhaps by turning our eyes in this direction we might find a directing clue to follow through this deepening maze of speculation. Let me give you information from Powis Hoult’s Dictionary of Some Theosophical Terms. He defines nature spirits as elementals, and of “elementals” says: (Pg. 46) “A comprehensive term for any semi-conscious or conscious non-human being or natural energy manifesting on the etheric or astral planes. A similar entity on the higher planes is more correctly termed a deva, though the word, elemental, has often also been applied to these higher beings – Elementals may be grouped in two classes:
- The natural elementals or nature spirits. These include all those entities popularly known as fairies, gnomes, brownies, pixies, nixies, undines, sylphs, salamanders, etc. They belong principally to the astral world, but there are many which manifest on the etheric sub planes of the physical.
- The artificial elementals or thought forms. These are forms given to a portion of elemental essence by the thoughts of mankind. Their existence is generally very transitory.” (Now note the Theosophical approach to the aka substance of Huna and similar concepts.) I continue to quote: (Pages 46 and 47)
“Elemental Essence: The substance of the Elemental Kingdoms, below the first, the atomic or monadic subdivision. (He then quotes from The Vahan). ‘When a portion of the monadic essence of any plane clothes itself in the molecular matter of that plane, in addition to its permanent sheath of the atomic matter, it is then called elemental essence of such and such a kind.’ (And from Annie Besant): ‘Elemental Essence …. consists of aggregations of matter on each of the six non-atomic subplanes of the mental and desire planes.’
“Elemental Kingdom: Spirit, descending into matter, reaches and vivifies the region known on the ascending arc as the Manasic or Mental Plane. The higher, Arupa subdivisions of this plane are called the ‘First Elemental Kingdom’; the lower, the Rupa subdivisions, are called the ‘Second Elemental Kingdom’. Below this, again, is the ‘Third Elemental Kingdom’, corresponding to the astral plane on the upward arc. ”
On page 37 we read, “A deva is lord of each class of elementals, such are Indra, Agni, Pavara, Varuna, and Kshiti. The devas: “Sanscrit: ‘the shining ones’, same root as deus. ” We would call them “gods” in English. They are related to the Pitris.: (I quote from page 100) “Sanskrit: forefathers, progenitors. (Note how similar this concept is to the Huna Aumakua or “ancestral Spirit Pair”). Owing to the wideness and looseness of its application, and partly to the very fragmentary nature of the information we have of those higher orders of beings to which it refers, this term has been involved in much confusion …..
“The Beings who build for man – the Monad – the body whereby he may incarnate, and bring to him those principles of mind whereby the spiritual is brought into touch with the physical.
“We have two main classes of Pitris, the Barhishads and the Agnishvattas, the first, of whom there are four orders, have to do with the physical ancestry of man; the second, of whom there are three orders, have to do with his intellectual evolution.
“The term is also applied to the two orders of Lower Dhyani or Solar Pitris, but the less progressed entities from the Lunar Chain, those who had not yet reached the individualized form, are best designated Ex-lunar Monads.” (Besant.)
IN CONSIDERING THE ABOVE MATERIAL, we must not forget the old problem which is whether the consciousness came down by steps from God to penetrate to the bottom of the heap of created things and then began to work back up from crystal to plant to insect etc. The men of India as well as of Egypt reasoned that this must have been the way things were done. Na kahuna, so far as the evidence shows, were content to catch the course of evolution in mid-stride, moving ever from below, upward. Perhaps na kahuna of old were mentally lazy, or perhaps they were wiser and had a better source of information. They avoided the vast complications which arose from trying to bring God down into material creation, with level after level and godlings finally falling into sinful flesh on the long and quite irrational slide from top to bottom. The idea that a circle or cycle must be involved, with beginnings and endings in terms of TIME, as we know it, gave men the idea of the in breathing of Creation, followed by an out breathing or manifestation.
For my money, I am content to follow na kahuna and pick up the course of evolution where we can catch it – where it is NOW. To go back to the problem of level after level of descent of godlings, and the final “Fall” where gods entered humanoid bodies, is such a useless exercise of mind and gets one only more and more complications.
But, as a secret doctrine showing through the outer speculative systems, we can say that there appears always to be the idea of a Parental Spirit, more evolved than the man. We can catch glimpses of superior and more evolved INTELLIGENCES at work guiding and making patterns for evolving life to follow. It would seem that the most profitable expenditure of time and speculative effort would be to try to catch evolving conditions in their stride and try to benefit by falling into step with the overall plan instead of trying for one reason or other (usually dogmatic) to run counter to ordered growth. We can see no devolution around us, only evolution.
WITH MY PENDULUM I have been trying to investigate the group souls and patterns in my garden, where I go to stand to represent man. There are neighbor dogs and cats. Birds, insects and plants, worms and bugs and microbes in the soil. There are crystals, minerals and water. If each unit has an invisible or aka body which is the pattern of its every part, then one may well ask what need there is for a larger over-all pattern, also probably made of some grade of basic shadowy or ectoplasmic – aka – substance. One may ask why an aka thread from every unit to its group soul would not be sufficient to carry guidance – guidance which would, from the seed stage to full growth, dictate the form of development. If we say that this thread connection would suffice, we are left without as great a need for a pattern made of some form of aka substance.
COULD THE PATTERNS BE MADE of the thinnest aka substance and be something like thought form clusters or ideas? It sounds reasonable. The group souls might live in their own aka bodies and just hold their pattern in mind more or less. If we can reduce the patterns, at least for speculative purposes, to memorized plans, it would make things very much more simple to understand. We could say, as we have often said before, that perhaps when we graduate as a male/female pair to the level of na Aumakua, we become apprentice na Aumakua and learn the details of simple patterns so that we can be trusted to be the group soul of a group of soil units. The older and more experienced na Aumakua would be the teachers and know the patterns. They, themselves, might be presiding over a human pair.
HOWEVER, IF THIS TURNS OUT TO BE TOO SIMPLE, and we fall back upon the idea of a substantial pattern acting under the skilled manipulation of a group soul as a pattern for all units in the group, we must look for some way to explain the mechanism without depending entirely on the connecting aka threads and the mana running along them to act as the needed energy. So what then? Micro waves projected as from a radio tower? Millions of them of all lengths and power? Or must we say that there are also waves and many forms of waves, or that there may be resonance from pattern to units, keeping most of the units in step, but allowing some to get out of step and so become sick?
IT SEEMS AT PRESENT TO BOIL DOWN (at least for me and my pendulum investigations via the Aunihipili), to two basic possibilities.
- That there are master patterns made of some kind of invisible substance being used by some Intelligence to keep all forms of life in step in my garden and in the atmosphere above or rock below. (Perhaps a pattern keeping the rays of the sun in step, but we won’t try to go into that now.)
- The same multitude of Intelligences, but with the patterns in their minds instead of in aka substance. (But, even then, if we accept the idea that “thoughts are things” made of aka substance shaped by mind, we still must have a substantial pattern.)
WITH MY TRUSTY PENDULUM, literally in the hands of my Aunihipili, I set out to explore the invisible part of my garden the other day. “Big Max” was pleased to help and suspiciously anxious to please. I began asking questions and getting answers of an amazing kind. Yes, there were aka bodies around everything in the dirt, in the plants, in the trees and weeds and in the air and clouds. Yes, all had aka threads going every which way and, yes, they did make an amazing tangle. Yes, they led to Intelligences, and there seemed to be patterns to match everything. Yes, the atmosphere was thick with them, all around and high up and down under foot. No, that was not all. There were no end of ghosts about, most of them Indians who had lived in these parts where we had a spring and in the valley a creek. Yes, there were the ghosts of white people and of several races, and of birds and deer and gophers no end. No ….. Big Max could sense no human spirits coming down to wait until a body was born to do a “Fall” into matter. Yes, there were radiations and vibrations and things all around and through and crossing and pulsing. No two aka bodies of plant or worm were just alike, but the patterns were much like the small units in the garden. For instance, the pattern for one kind of tomato plant was perfect and all of the tomatoes on it, so far as could be sensed, were perfect. No, the aka bodies around the tomatoes which the two handsome snails were eating, did not seem to change, although the snails ate holes in the material tomatoes. No, there seemed to be no hard feelings between the group souls overlooking the tomatoes and those seeing to it that the snails acted like snails should act. Yes, (after a long pause) when men wanted to play group soul, they could, and the pattern held for both of our kinds of tomatoes had been changed to please men and give a better strain of tomatoes. No, the group souls of the two kinds of tomatoes in our garden would not answer questions. They had other things to do, and did not seem to understand Aunihipili English. No, a man could not vibrate like a tomato or a snail, Yes, I had a group soul holding a body pattern for me, and if I tried hard, I might find a way to make myself vibrate better to match the pattern. Yes, the pattern covered a time lapse in some way, being just like a man from inception to old age and death. Yes, the man was supposed to be perfect at every stage of life if circumstances allowed, but if team work between all the group souls did not match and circumstances did not give the right food and things, a baby or grown man might be imperfect. Yes …… perhaps one might learn to vibrate just right to become a nearly perfect old man standing in an imperfect garden. Yes, it was all very complicated and confusing, even for Big Max, who can sense no end of things which I cannot sense as an Auhane. No, he did not find a group soul for the Auhane alone, but there might be one if he knew where in the tangle to look for it
But, anyway, there was our Aumakua, and it could be found because there was an extra large aka cord running up and out to it. Yes, the group souls would let men practice at being amateur group souls and make new strains of plants or bugs or cows, but they couldn’t do it directly and all by themselves. They had to follow the rules and keep breeding and cross breeding the kinds of things they wanted, leaving the group souls to make corresponding changes in the pattern. Yes, when a new rose was developed and sold all over the country, Big Max supposed that the changed pattern to fit it would have to expand in some way to go with the new plants. Yes, indeed, the group souls are much smarter about such things than we are.
SO THERE YOU HAVE IT, if you are still reading. Want to try your hand at exploring this new angle of the field? Want to try doing something to make any part of you which is out of step with its pattern get back into step? I suggest that there may be the Aunihipili or physical action to consider, and then the Auhane or thinking angle, in which we visualize good health, think good health and try to vibrate in the positive and constructive way instead of the negative. A combination of both approaches may be just right. If you join me in testing, let me know if you hit on something that works. Your Aunihipili may be of much assistance through the pendulum if you can formulate the right questions and get it to understand what you want of it. Physical stimuli such as chanting, dancing or what have you, may help the Aunihipili in its part in the combined effort. Perhaps the Aumakua needs also to be considered when we try to hear a three toned musical chord, or something similar in the matter of vibrations and try to respond mentally and physically to some resonance. The hula dance used as a religious ceremony in the Polynesian past may well have been a part of a ritual effort to cause a group to fall back into step on all three levels of life, physical, Auhane mental, and Aumakua direct knowing. (If you are still with me, come on down into my garden with me while we have a coffee break. I’ll show you the most elegant big green tomato worm. He thinks he is helping keep the balance of nature by eating the vines so that the tomatoes will not take the whole garden.)
MY TAROT CARDS PREDICT: (Several of the HRAs have written in to ask what the cards had to say about the Cuban situation, Russia and Red China.) When the Cuban trouble first hit the headlines, I sat down at once to run the cards, and was surprised by turning up indications that nothing much would happen. The cards said, “Business as usual. They said the same thing when run for Russia. I have just paused to run the cards again after coming up from admiring the big green tomato worm and a smaller friend who has joined him, also a large red butterfly who seems to be a post worm manifestation.
FOR CUBA, I got a surprising run of cards which I cannot but read as predicting that cutting ties with Russia and China will come to a large extent and that USA will make friendly advances and offer money and business and trade help with even a pledge not to invade Cuba or overthrow Castro. I would not be at all surprised to see Americans again swarming down to Havana next Spring for vacation trips and the pleasures of gambling.
FOR RUSSIA, the cards told a mixed story in which crop and money matters show badly and there is a background of increasing desire for peace and understanding and increased trade. The leaders seem to be coming around to the realization that no one wants war or dares risk the financial and social pressures which a large war would certainly impose. The space and bomb race has cost Russia too much, and in USA there is a growing desire to cut down the expense of war preparations and reduce taxes. No war or major disaster cards were cut for either side.
FOR RED CHINA, the cards still run badly, as they did last January. Hunger and the cards of enemies turn up. False starts and resultant losses and forced new starts show strongly, with a turning up of the “Fool” indicating that in no long time a big change and large new start in a different direction will come. At the end of the run of cards the “Death” card came up. I read the cards as predicting another period of crop failure and bad weather next year, and possibly some great epidemic which will change the general picture. Uncle Samuel and the other Western nations will probably offer a helping hand and have their help welcomed. The war now going on with India seems to end quickly, with one side or the other stopped cold. Oddly enough the cards seem to show China accepting a bribe of money and other help in return for letting India alone.
NEWS FOR ME ON THE HOME FRONT, is just coming in from Cigbo as I write. He has been cutting his small deck of cards in the seclusion of his cigar box and has passed me a note: “My cards tell me about half of my Aunties squiggle at the mention of our tomato worms. I addwise that boss dry up about them. I also addwise that he has stuck his neck out terrible far in making too defrinite pedictions about what is to happen. It is always best to just make general (or captain, or sarjunt or even corporal) pedictions that aren’t so importink and are easier to wiggle out of when they go thataway instead of thisaway. A other good way is to wait like I do and see what happings, then you can write, ‘As I pedicted in a earlier eddition which you no doubt received and forgot to read, the Fall ejections was held and all them I said would be ejected, was, and all them I said wouldn’t be was tossed out and had to appear on Tellemvision and make consessions so they would be let back in after the whooping and hollowing is over.’ Or write, ‘I pedict that there will be vast and interustink changes on Mars, Venus and Jupiter. I also pedict that us Repuplicans and us Democracks will get mad when the next ejection comes up. “‘
THE BOOK ON DREAM MEANINGS, recently recommended by HRA Hal Falvey of Chicago, was found seldom to mention a dream of the sort one has. Hal writes to explain that what one must do is take pencil and pad to bed with one, and whenever awakening and remembering a dream, write notes to enable one to recall it. Such dreams are listed and used to make one’s own individual dream book. Attention is paid to what certain types of dream foretell, and with the mind turned expectantly to receiving premonitory information of this kind, the dreams will become more and more helpful. Dreams often have symbolic form and meanings, and one may soon learn that to dream of a red bull means something bully is about to happen. This ties in with the Huna theory that the Aunihipili gets premonitory information from the Aumakua, who can see to a limited degree into the future, then in dreams and dream symbols the information is passed on. List the dreams alphabetically and leave space to note what follows each, if anything. Another thing: best keep a weak night light burning so light turned on suddenly to see to do the writing will not upset your Aunihipili, as it did mine years ago. Or, if you have a tape recorder, speak or whisper the dream to record it, and play it back to take off for the record next day or when time allows. (The whispering records and does not awaken the household.) One soon learns to sense the difference between dreams which have no particular meaning and dreams of premonitory significance. It stands to reason that no two people are alike and each may have a different meaning for the same general type of dream. Remember that fears are often reflected in dreams of a type which come frequently, but that these seldom foretell or warn. (I have just taken my old Revere tape recorder to the repair man to get it made to work, and will give the method an enthusiastic try to see if by chance I can get back to dreaming premonitory dreams as I did years ago in Hawaii – as described in my first book.)
WHAT IS THE MOST SUCCESSFUL METHOD OF ACCUMULATING MANA? asks an HRA in a recent letter. Another HRA has sent in two pages of methods given by Doreal, the occultist and teacher in Colorado. Some occultists believe we can draw “cosmic energy” or “prana” from the air, and a few mention two women who have no need for food or water as examples of how one can live entirely on such a form of force.
Recently we had in the H.V. a mention of the benefit of turning the head back and forth while breathing deeply to accumulate mana. This is good. Any form of physical movement or posturing while breathing and accumulating by a mental command to the Aunihipili, seems good. Each person may find an individual method best. Remember that your Aunihipili with the pendulum is expert in measuring the mana charge and showing you through the weak or strong movement of the pendulum how the accumulation is going. Hold your pendulum over your palm and tell your Aunihipili to show with a swing about how large your mana charge is at the moment. The swing may be in a circle or in a straight line. Start accumulating and ask the Aunihipili to register via the size of the swing the size of the charge. More charge: more swing.
BUT ONE MUST REMEMBER THAT the Aunihipili has a very small vocabulary to use in connection with the pendulum and the code. It often has to invent a word by using a form of straight, oval or circular swing to mean something quite different. A case in point is found in the invention of the far larger than normal swings used to tell us that the Aumakua has been contacted and the mana sent, then returned to us in a changed form to bless us and complete the working circuit. To enlarge the vocabulary, men have invented charts with degrees and numbers to which the pendulum can be made to swing, but George often is slow to learn the new codes. MFL
Naming the Aumakua and the Po`e Aumakua
PLEASE READ THIS: I keep saying in the Huna Vistas that when you move, the post office does not forward the H.V. class of mail. Instead, the issues are returned to me marked, “8 cents return postage due”. A new address is sometimes scribbled on the envelope, but I have no way of knowing whether you are off for a vacation of a week or two, or gone away to stay. So, when I buy back a bulletin I chuck it in a box and then remove your address stencil from the set. I note on your file card that you are gone, then I wait for you to write to say what your new address may be. If you do not write, you become a LOST HRA, which is akin to a lost soul. If you do happen to miss the H.V. and write eventually, and if you want back issues which you have missed, either send 25 cents for each one desired so it can go first class mail, or wait until the next regular mailing is sent out. The figure of 25 cents includes 3 cents used to send out the issues, 8 cents each to ransom them back from the post office and 12 cents for the new first class postage, to which add the cost of two envelopes, a new address stencil and a dollar’s worth of my invaluable time.

Names for ne Aumakua & More Healing Methods
STRANGE NEWS COMES FROM HAWAII
As I write, the strange old happenings which marked my days in Hawaii are once more being reported. In the old days the stone gods were said to move here and there of their own accord, especially the ones worshiped in very early times by fishermen. I have just had a long telephone conversation with a lady of some psychic ability who passed on an odd story which she believes correct in all details.
It seems that a prominent gentleman of Hawaii was driving along one day with a young Hawaiian boy beside him when the lad asked him to stop and look at a place near the road at which he sensed something important was to be found. Investigation proved that there was an ancient stone god of considerable size there, and, moreover, it was a double image. Eventually, the god was moved to a new center built near the old Bishop Museum in Honolulu. It remained there and attracted many visitors, but it was decided that it should be taken a block or so over to the Museum. Arrangements were made for the large truck and a crane to lift the image. But when the work of moving was undertaken, the image could not be budged. Someone suggested that the god did not wish to be moved, so a local Hawaiian versed in such matters was called in. He chanted praise and when good relationship was established, told the god how much better it would be in the Museum for him, and how much more pleasant his surroundings would be over there. He then asked the god whether or not he would now allow himself to be moved to the truck and transported. He was able to tell those who were watching that he would tap the image and that if it gave out a ringing sound, it would signify assent. If a dead and dull sound came, it would be refusal to go. The image was struck and a ringing note was heard. But before the crane could again be put to use, the god levitated of his own accord and moved across the intervening space to the doors, through them and settled gently on the bed of the truck ready for the journey.
The story reminds me of similar tales of the stone gods, their likes and dislikes and conversations with human beings. This one seems to be considered by some as an omen of change in the Islands. The lady told me that Dr. Brigham had appeared before her and at a later time, King Kamehameha. Neither spoke to her. Later on she saw in a vision where Kamehameha had been secretly buried. This “seeing” may soon be put to the test, as the burial place of the famous conqueror of the eight islands has been known only to a few trusted servants who conducted the burial rites, and to descendants. The last person knowing of the secret burial cave was recently stricken in such a way that he could no longer speak to pass on the information. Via visions, also, other things were seen and there is the expectation that ancient religious secrets will in some way be recovered.
Another bit of news which the lady gave me was that Dr. Emory, who has for years been director of the Bishop Museum, is being replaced by someone else, now about to be selected. Dr. Emory was asked years ago to consider my findings on Huna, especially through the Hawaiian language root meanings of words used by na kahuna, and refused to have anything to do with the material, one way or another. It is my hope that some fine day there will be a man in charge of the Museum who will be more open to this approach to the secret lore of na kahuna.
The lady will be going to Hawaii shortly to supervise the testing out of what she has seen psychically, and will return to Los Angeles in due time. She has promised to let me know how things come out and what new is given her. I have asked her to get any information Dr. Brigham might possibly have to pass on to me concerning the Huna study on which he started me many years ago. I was much interested in the fact that the lady saw Dr. Brigham well before running into my book, SSBM, and was only able to identify him after reading my description of him. She was so excited over the identification that she picked up the phone and put through a call for me, although she still had made only a start at reading the book (which a friend had handed her when hearing that she was into things Hawaiian in a psychic way).
SPEAKING OF THINGS PSYCHIC
A most intriguing thing has recently happened through the hand and pendulum of one of the good HRAs, W.D., of California. He had constructed a circular chart with the alphabet on it so that his pendulum could pick out letters much as the pointer of the Ouija Board can do. He was running check on the method I had described in one of the Huna Vistas in which I accumulated the mana surcharge and watched the movement of the swinging pendulum, which indicates that the mana has been sent to the Aumakua and then, that a return flow is being sent back. After that I asked for “yes/no” answers to questions. (As you will all remember, I got some answers which seemed so far afield that I concluded that the Aunihipili was answering instead of the Aumakua.)
Adding the alphabet chart to the method, and asking the Aunihipili to spell out the answers, he soon came to this conclusion. (I quote from his letter on the subject.) “Here is what I learned – and by the hard way. The Aumakua is not going to sit on your shoulder and answer a lot of questions while you create mana, etc. for him. He may answer one or two, but then the Aunihipili takes over, or so I believe. When I want an answer from the Aumakua, I pray and give him as many units of mana and Vital Energy (a slightly different form of life force which he believes he can also accumulate and send to advantage) as he may need, the same as I do in making any other prayer, but this time I ask for an answer to a specific question, as for example, ‘What is the name of M.F.L.’s Aumakua.’?
After praying to the H.S. I give a little more mana and vital energy in case it may be needed. I usually put the number 3 at the top of the call board (chart mounted on a board?) as 3 is his call number. First I ask if he is ready (the Aunihipili, a little later, perhaps next day) to contact the Aumakua and if the pendulum goes to 3, there is H.S. contact and I ask for the answer to my question. I got for the name of your Aumakua the letters AEHAI, which meant nothing at all to me, but which meant a great deal to you, as you know, when I wrote you about them. I repeated this three times on three different days, and always got the same AEHAI, then I wrote you about it.” (He continued this line of testing and later got more results:) “For L.M. I got the letters AA and for H. I got AAEA. I also gathered that these are the secret names of na Aumakua and are not to be spoken, anyway by the uninitiated. I got mine, as you will recall, as AIO, which you looked up in your Polynesian dictionaries and found to mean ‘Calm and peaceful’ and which could apply to any Aumakua.”
The name for me, which he received as designating my Aumakua, is really two Hawaiian words, Ae hai and need to be translated separately but considered together. In English we have no single word equivalent for ae, which means, “To pass, either physically or mentally, from one state, condition or place, to another.” It also has the meaning of “To rise, or lift up, ” the latter being the usual Huna symbol of the Aumakua. So, we have intimated a Aumakua which has made the transition or change from the Auhane level to that of the Aumakua. The word hai has many related meanings, chief of which are “broken in two, as a joint in a limb, elbow,” and, when used as a pronoun or adjective, “another”. It takes a knowledge of Huna and the inner doctrine to understand what is signified. One needs to ask what it is that was broken in two and who is this “other”? The answer is the male and female na auhane who were parts of the sundered man from the start of the evolutionary passage through the life school. The single self was divided into male and female halves for that stage of growth and experience, and allowed to unite again only when graduating from the Auhane level to that of the Aumakua. So there we have a perfect description of my Aumakua but one which would fit any other Aumakua.
We also have something of great value – the added evidence that we have correctly reconstructed the Huna lore where it concerns this upward growth of the selves and the reunion of the male and female halves to give us the Father/Mother Aumakua as a blending of the pair.
The name for the Aumakua of “H” has the literal meaning of: in aa, burning like a fire, continuously, which gives us the symbol of the Aumakua as LIGHT. Fire makes light. The second part of this name, ae, is, again, that as given above, “To pass physically or mentally from one state or condition to another”, and it seems certain that this must be a symbol indicating the Aumakua in its level of evolution. The full name A ae a has also the meaning of a “word used by children in addressing their parents before they can speak plainly.” This points symbolically to the parental aspect of the Aumakua and clinches the matter of inner meaning. And the name for L. M.’s Aumakua, as given above, was Aa, which we have just seen to mean the continuously burning fire or Unfailing Light.
I consider it very strange and not a little exciting to have this set of results, as given by HRA W.D., and to know that he has no knowledge at all of the Hawaiian language. I may have missed out in the answers I thought came from the Aumakua concerning the next writing project to be undertaken, but there seems no avoiding the conclusion that W.D. made contact with something other than just his Aunihipili. I feel that I should proffer our combined thanks to him for the effort. By the way, he also reports that he has had a very strong feeling that the late Meade Layne, the founder of the B.S.R.A. organization, now in the hands of Riley Crabb, desires very much to make contact with me for some purpose or other. I have tried a few times to relax and wait for a telepathic message from him, but as yet nothing has been received. I have not heard lately what the Mark Probert seances have been bringing through, but am sure that if Meade had given Mark a message of importance for me, I would have been told. It will be remembered by many of you that Meade was for years the leading investigator of the Probert contacts with those on the other side.
THE “HARMONY GROVE” GET TOGETHER
The Harmony Grove Get Together, which, by the way, was recently arranged by Riley Crabb and friends of his of the “Understanding Units”, also the Spiritualists who have made Harmony Grove, south of Vista some 15 miles, was a big success. For three days there were lectures and and conversation between like minded people. Douglas Low, who has sat long at the feet of David Bray, who claims to be a kahuna, gave a very impressive lecture on the lore of na kahuna, so Riley told me. I did not learn whether or not he told his audience that Mr. Bray refuses to accept my findings concerning the beliefs and practices of na kahuna. He will have none of the Aunihipili or Aumakua, as I see them, and believes that there is but one grade of mana, a supernatural force of some vague sort which one either has or does not have, and which cannot be accumulated for use. He considers the word Aunihipili, which I translate “Low Self”, to mean , as says the dictionary, “Arm and leg bones of a chief, bound up and given worship,” or “A grasshopper”. He visited me one day and hit the ceiling at the idea that one might translate the several roots in this word and get a fine description of the subconscious or Aunihipili as known in modern psychology and my own research work. I did not get over to hear the lecture as several HRAs were enjoying the Labor Day period and wanted to see me. Riley tells me that the directors of Harmony Grove are talking of expanding its uses and perhaps arranging to have monthly meetings, with talks and entertainment which will cover everything from Spiritualism and messages from the departed to Flying Saucers and Border Land Science Research such as represented by Riley’s organization. One HRA, I hear, was so taken with the place that he is talking of moving down from upper California to live there in one of the several available cottages. He is retired and a great hand at making gardens bloom, so may pretty up the grounds in his spare time.
MORE HEALING VIA HERBS calls for the attention of many HRAs. As, na kahuna used such medicines and manipulations as they could, even while calling for healing from na Aumakua, I feel that everything is grist for our healing mill, be it alfalfa, comfrey, creosote bush tea or work in the TMHG healing circle efforts.
A letter just in as I write, is from HRA M.C.K. of Arizona. She writes: “You have mentioned in the latest bulletins a palliative for arthritis, tea from the leaves of the creosote bush of the desert. There is another herb tea that is very helpful, avocado leaf tea. While I was living at Lakeside with an avocado grove in my backyard, I used it and found it helpful. Friends to whom I used to give bags of leaves also claimed it stopped the pain. This prescription comes to me third hand from native Brazilian witch doctors. A friend of mine knows a doctor in Brazil who is with the Federal Public Health Service, and whose job it is to swap medical knowledge with the local traditional healers. From them he learned about the avocado leaf tea. He claimed that in his own practice he found it cured three or four out of five patients. Take five or six medium sized leaves, shred them by cutting with the kitchen scissors, cover with water, boil for fifteen minutes or so, and drink either hot or cold. Take five cups daily. It tastes somewhat like sassafras tea. If you know anyone with a grove who would sell and ship me leaves, please let me know.” (I have written to ask whether the leaves were to be picked, washed, dried and packed in pound lots. If there is a demand, I am sure we could hire Mexican help to do the work, and this year the avocado trees in this neck of the woods forgot to set on more than a token of fruit, so might well furnish a crop of leaves. I will give more information when I hear again.)
HEALING BY USE OF THE PENDULUM is more along our usual line of investigation, and HRA O.K., also of Arizona, has related in a letter her experience with the method. Here is her letter: “In the matter of healing through the use of the pendulum, about which you asked to have details, I have this to pass on. When I injured my knee (bad bruise and scrape), I just cleansed the injured part with cold water, then used the pendulum. The first finger on my left hand registers positive with the pendulum and the second negative. I held the pendulum over my knee and it registered positive – rotated clockwise – so I placed the tip of the first finger on the spot that was injured, held the pendulum with thumb and first finger of the left hand over the spot and let it rotate positive. When it changed to negative – rotating counterclockwise – I used the second finger of my left hand, then back to the positive finger when the pendulum rotated clockwise again. Never end a treatment on negative rotation. I continued the treatment until the pendulum swung back and forth, meaning neutral. Two treatments did the trick. Yesterday I crawled through a barb wire fence and caught my right shoe on a barb. I fell, and hurt the side of my left knee. It swelled up as big as half an egg. I used the pendulum – positive – and in nothing flat the swelling was gone. No discoloration or soreness whatever. I don’t believe it, but there it is. It sure isn’t faith. I can’t explain it. Before I started this treatment yesterday, I built up a supply of mana, as mentioned by one of the California HRAs, and perhaps that speeded up the reduction of the swelling.”
This is excellent test work. Keep the method in mind and try it next time you hurt yourself. Or try it on a pet or a friend, and let me know how you come out. You might get ready for an emergency by testing your fingers with your pendulum to see which is positive and which negative. This HRA is an advanced student in the things of our particular part of the field. She delighted me last week by sending me five books which I had not yet seen, and which I have found most interesting, not so much for any Huna angles in them, but to show the trend of thinking in religious and psychological circles.
STILL ANOTHER HEALING METHOD was mentioned by HRA C.W. of Colorado, and I asked for more details. She answered:
Our method of healing is very simple and was given to us about 25 years ago. It has never failed. The instant you are hurt, or anyone else is hurt, repeat, ‘God bless it’, three times. Even if it is later, you can still repeat the phrase and it will help heal and decrease pain. It can be said either aloud or silently. One time I took hold of a lid lifter on a laundry stove. The stove was red hot and the lifter had been left in the lid. The palm of my hand was burned so badly that it turned white instantly and started to stick to the lifter. I used the phrase and never even had a blister. Just the other day our youngest daughter spilled boiling soup over her hand while filling a thermos. Instantly she repeated ‘God bless it’ three times and although her hand turned red for a short while and stung a bit, there was not even a blister and a half hour later you would never have known she had been burned …… One day I said ‘darn’ before I used the phrase, and although the burn healed, it was slower and stung a little. One evening a neighbor, and friend, who had been an army nurse, came in, her hand wrapped loosely in a handkerchief. She had received a severe burn and had come to our store to buy some first aid items. Both Mr. W. and myself instantly repeated the blessing while I was helping her to find what she wanted from the drug department, and suddenly she looked at me and said, ‘I feel like a fool coming here for that burn doesn’t even hurt nowl’ I began to laugh and she, knowing our beliefs, said, ‘Did you do something?’ Needless to say she had no trouble with her burn.
Once I saw an elderly lady, who was across the street from the store, shut her hand in her car door. She bent over the steering wheel the pain was so great. I quickly repeated the blessing and when she came over into the Post Office a bit later I asked her how her hand was and she said it was just fine and didn’t hurt any more. It never turned black and blue. Our grandson hit his finger with a rock and instantly had a blood blister form under the nail. Our youngest daughter – who is his aunt – and I immediately repeated the blessing when he came in and showed us what he had done. It continued to hurt for only a few minutes.” (Several other instances of the successful use of the invocation were given.) This method is of particular interest in that it uses the thrice repeated prayer with which we are familiar in Huna. As all prayer goes to the Aumakua, and as there may be emotion at work to set the Aunihipili to act swiftly to call on the Aumakua for the blessing of healing, it all makes sense from the Huns. point of view. Try it out and see what results you get.
A HUNA STUDY GROUP IS AT WORK, under the leadership of HRA Isabel M. Hickey who has a book and teaching center in Boston and who writes: “We started our classes Labor Day night and are using ‘Growing Into Light’ as class text book. I am hoping that members will also get ‘Secret Science At Work’ and do some serious work on it. Those who have already done so in the group will be eternally grateful to you for their introductions to themselves. We all found that after some months of talking via the pendulum that the rapport with the subconscious was established and we didn’t need the pendulum except in cases where we wanted to take the mana charge count, etc. One of the interesting experiments we did was to find out which one was in need of more vitality – then, in our meditation, we would all ask our na Aumakua to send more vitality to the person in need. And, the pendulum would always show that the prayer had been answered. Also in finding lost articles the ‘Little Self’ is invaluable.”
A slightly later letter says that the class discussions are being taped, and that I can have the loan of a tape if I wish to see what is going on. I shall very much enjoy the tape, as to find a group holding together and working under a strong leader, even for a month, is something rare and delightful. My congratulations to you, Group, and to your leader. (The Group belongs to the HRA more or less as a Group, and Cigbo has been remembered in the past so that he has been experimenting on sending meows of thanks in group form. He thinks he is sending now by the new Telstar satellite and prides himself on being a very modern kitty, even when scratching to help keep a study of a very ancient system progressing.)
HAWAIIAN ARCHEOLOGISTS DIG WITH CARE at the old “City of Refuge.” center at Honaunau, in Kona, part of my old stomping grounds. HRA M.S. who lives not far away and correspondes for the new local paper, sent a clipping which shows a team of three archeologists happily digging up a skeleton from a trench near the ancient religious center. Tourists now come thick and fast and parking grounds and a small museum are to be made ready. But, as the sites for these were found to include old burial grounds, the experts were called in to dig and make a study and to superintend moving the ancient graves.
However, long experience has taught the circumspect that the spirits of the old and departed Hawaiians sometimes resent having their remains tampered with. A story is being told of a contractor on another one of the islands who took the job of bulldozing a site to cut it down for buildings. He dug up bones, and, not being wise in the ways of Hawaii, threw them over a cliff to get rid of them. A few days later he was caught between two of his big machines and killed. Which all explains why those in on the “City of Refuge” project and those living thereabouts, called in a lady known as “Mother” Morrison, to counteract with prayers and chants any danger which might arise. She went to stand on a rise back from the sea and overlooking the center. There she … but let me quote from the article:
“On top of the hill beside a rock platform thought to be the grave of ancient and powerful kings of Kona, Mrs. Morrison prayed first in Hawaiian and then in English. She asked that the workers and visitors to the park be protected from harm coming from any evil clinging to earth and ‘things’ buried under the ancient rock and sands. ‘May God bless this land and make it safe for Hawaiians and all people to walk on,’ Mother Morrison said. ‘God in heaven is more powerful than the old Hawaiian gods.’ She is a Hawaiian and a religious leader from the island of Oahu. Archeologists from the Bishop Museum (one was from Yale on special assignment) and park staff members watched while Mrs. Morrison, wearing white robes, prayed there on the hill overlooking the Great Wall of the ancient City of Refuge.”
THE TMHG WORK CONTINUES STEADILY with varying results, some good, some slight and some not enough to be noticed. Not a little depends on the way the one needing help does his or her part and on whether or not someone close by will work if the sufferer is unable to do much of anything. An interesting test was run recently by special arrangement with an Idaho HRA, J.M., who set a time for me to send special telepathic signals to her to see if the contact was good enough to register. In connection with the test, we were to join in doing special work for her mother, as well as working in the TMHG periods.
For the telepathic signals I sent the Kingsley Tarpey healing picture which hangs on my study wall, and which is of a few pines against a sunset sky where yellow and orange predominate. In addition I sent a rainbow, sometimes using it to form a triangle, square or circle. Here is the letter reporting on the tests:
The only impressions beyond those I credited to imagination, were an experiencing of re-occurring bands of vivid color with waves of yellow orange predominating. The colors were extremely beautiful and the accompanying sensation most pleasant. Otherwise nothing, not even a geometric figure. However, on the encouraging side of the ledger and actually more important right now, my mother has been making a great gain. She has made noticeable improvement in the last three weeks, to an extent that her doctor is most surprised. I am most grateful for your help. She is obviously benefiting. Please do continue. Thank you so much.
OAHSPE, “The New Bible” interests some HRAs and others not. Dr. Hanoka, just now in Florida, has a copy, “like new” which he asks me to say will be sold to anyone who makes “a decent offer”. (If you wish to make an offer, send your letter to me to forward, as he may soon leave Florida.) Another HRA who likes her Huna, but also likes almost everything else, wants to borrow a copy. My copy is not available just now, so, if you wish to lend yours, let me know. By the way, subscribers to ABERREE magazine, ($2 a year), may borrow from a fine list of books in the library of the proprietors, Alphia and Alice Hart, P.O. Box 528, Enid, Oklahoma. The magazine if filled with articles and letters from its readers and editorial comment by the editor. It views everything with twinkling eye, and is provocative as well as amusingly refreshing. Let me quote from a typical article:
AN ARTICLE IN ABERREE
Christmas number, issued in July and August, has an article from the pen of indignant Jacob Isaac Apsel, on his experience with the people who are out to take the “suckers” and make a “fast buck”. I quote at random:
…. people who claim to have supernatural and supernormal abilities set themselves up in business, promising answers and demonstrations for a fee. The longer they operate, the more they become aware that they have to resort to subterfuge and fabrication to cover up their failure…. An Alabama ‘Reverend’ sold lessons on how to multiply coins by placing them in a plate overnight, but to pay up his mounting debts he kept appealing frantically for, donations from a large mailing list of potential donors. He sold lessons on how to develop a slender figure, but his wife was almost too wide to pass thru the doorway. He snorted and just about spit fire when I told him to quit being a ballyhoo artist and go back to photography, at which he was an expert. My firsthand experience with people who advertise that they will answer questions for a dollar or two, or a love offering, is that not one appeared to be a solid citizen to his/her neighbor, also they seem to be in need of money. Professional mediums constantly scheme how to dress up whatever messages they can bring forth. When I took some of these to task at the New York Spiritualist Camp I lived in, one quickly spoke up, ‘Your vegetable merchant polishes his fruit to make it more palatable.’ A healer who could not heal halitosis said, ‘So what. Doctors give sugar pills.’ The following are a few choice failures I have noted in the past 30 years: A medium who claimed she got 100% in Dr. Rhine’s Duke University test, could not perceive that her purse with $50 would be snatched on her triumphal return. A psychic who, blindfolded, could read the numbers on a dollar bill in a man’s wallet, could not locate his own wallet with $200 in it that was to be a payment on bis mortgage. A bank teller who gave lectures on mental telepathy could not read the minds of the men who entered his bank and held it up. A clairvoyant who boasted of knowing in advance the people who were to visit him, could not see the three teen age thugs who slugged him and left him lying in the alley. Several persons – including me – who gave predictions for a whole year, but could not tell what tomorrow’s newspaper headline would be. The Theosophist of 20 years, the Rosicrucian of 18 years, and the member of Paramahansa Yogananda’s Hermitage, who compared notes and confessed that neither they nor anyone they came in contact with had attained the mystifying powers promised in their respective schools. I visited a gentleman in Nevada for the purpose of taking E Therapy mainly. He disowned me after taking my money – three figures – when I told him the aches and pains he claimed were removed from me were positively his own aches and pains that crept out when he relaxed. I had not had any aches, pains or even a common cold in about 20 years, so they couldn’t be mine. I continue to make public my findings because it makes me ‘mad’ that I sacrificed so much seeking to fulfill what liars of the past, and more prolific liars of the present, perpetuate. I feel sorry for my fish family – the suckers.”
IN THE SAME ISSUE of Aberree, Lorraine Harr takes a delightful jab at the ever increasing number of “course” peddlers and cult starters. It is in verse: “As I stepped from my spaceship onto the strange planet, I said to the native:
‘Take me to your followers.
AND AN EDITORIAL FILLER has the title, “U.S.Gift to the World from Xmas Island”. It reads: “With one branch of the Government working for integration and another branch working equally hard for disintegration, it’s getting more and more difficult to decide which one is the primary goal. Teufel, the office cat, says that it doesn’t take a Harvard graduate with a Yale degree to know that if they get one, they’ll have both of them.”
JUST TO SHOW the sardonic grin behind the ABERREE, let me give you an ad from the back page of the issue carrying Mr. Apsel’s blasts. It reads: “Gifted Clairvoyant and Astrological tea cup reader. Three questions $1.” (Then the address.)
A Bulletin of Letters
I am most pleased to be able to report that almost a third of the HRAs who were notified that they were in Cigbo’s dog house because of “neglect of Cigar Box” have been heard from and are back in the fold. A few have written to say they have lost interest for one reason or another, as was to be expected. For the most part, the need was only a reminder that Cigbo needed his annual help to keep from getting splinters in his feet from scratching on the bottom of a bare ‘box. The overseas HRAs have not yet had “deadwood” letters sent out to those who have been forgetful, but I notice Cigbo eying their address stencils with some questioning in his small and slightly crossed eyes.
IT IS HIGH TIME THAT WE HAVE A “LETTER BULLETIN”, so:
How extensively you are delving into the past in your research work? Do you dwell much on what is ahead in the future? The discoveries about outer space? The fate of the U.S.A.? Will Communism cease to be a menace? M.S.S. (California.) Read more
LOST CONTINENT THEORY OF ATLANTIS AND MU explodes in our hands like a piece of “bombsky” Emma Goldman’s pie back before Communism. (That is the title of this news unit. It should all be in caps.)
AS YOU ALL KNOW, there seems to be nothing quite so difficult as getting the truth about things after reading materials presented by writers who make their ideas and theories seem so logical and factual. Take for instance all the accounts of the lost continents of Atlantis in the Atlantic Ocean and Mu in the Pacific, to say nothing of Lemuria or Gondwana Land in the Indian Ocean. Orthodox Science ignores the theories of all “occultists”, especially those propounded by the psychic occultists who claim to have gone back over the ages to investigate pre-sinking continents. The occultists either fail to tell the same story, or some liar in the charmed circle tells a whopper and all the others accept it as truth and begin to pass out the lie with bits of exciting speculation.

Patterns of Health
GOOD NEWS COMES FROM HRA DR. WESTLAKE in England, whose new book, Patterns of Health, was reviewed in one of the recent Huna Vistas. It will be recalled that he has been working on a new and revolutionary theory covering the possibility of using “patterns” in making a diagnosis of physical ills and also in sending out treatment over intervening distance. He had long been a student of what we have come to call “Radionics”, and had not been satisfied with either the proposed theories or the instruments invented by such inventors as Dr. Abrarn , Dr. Ruth Drown, George de la Warr and others. The theories failed to explain what the instruments were seen to do, and the performance of the instruments themselves was not good enough. One prime defect was to be seen in the fact that the instruments would work only in the hands of individuals with natural psychic talents. Read more

A POSSIBLE CLUE TO INSTANT HEALING has turned up while I have been looking through the Huna material which is scattered through the books and bulletins which many of you of the HRA have helped me to produce.
WHILE MAKING MY DAILY PENDULUM CONTACT with my Aumakua to offer mana and love and to ask for Guidance, particularly in the matter of the handling of the HRA work and in the writing of the book covering the Huna in Bible and Gnostic literature, I was suddenly struck with an idea. It was that we have been neglecting the consideration of what na kahuna called “SPEAKING FOR THE GOD”. With na kahuna “the god” with whom they identified themselves and for whom they spoke in uttering the command, “BE HEALED”, was the Aumakua. In the Gospels we find Jesus using the formula, “Thy faith has made this possible. BE YOU HEALEDI” He explained to his inner circle of disciples, “Not 1, but the Father within; He doeth the works”. He added, “The Father and I are one.” It is apparent from our studies of the Huna coded and hidden in the New Testament, that Jesus spoke of himself in two ways. He was “The Son of Man” as a combined Aunihupili and Auhane, but as he spoke of himself as “The Son of God”, he was including his Aumakua and indicating the human trinity of selves. Read more
Huna in the Ancient Languages
I AM HAPPY TO REPORT that my daily sittings, pendulum in hand, to make contact with my Aumakua and ask for inspiration and guidance, appear to be working well. The guidance still seems to be strong and clear that I should try to get the material together for the book on the coded and symbolized Huna which is hidden in parts of the Bible and the Gnostic literature. I have had no “seeings” relative to this project, and I am impressed more and more with the seeming fact that one has to go ahead on one’s own, doing the best one can, and looking to the Aumakua for a general inspiration in the background. Only now and then have I been faced with a problem for which I had no answer, and at such times I have asked the answer and then leafed through my old Hawaiian dictionary, watching for a place where the words might point me in the right direction.

Guidance From the Aumakua
I REPORT ON PENDULUM ATTEMPTS TO GET GUIDANCE from the Aumakua. As you remember, we recently made a great “breakthrough” in being able to contact and read in P.A. code either the Guide overlooking each of us, or the Aumakua. At the time of the first discussion of this exciting verification via the pendulum of contact with what I now strongly feel is both Guide and Aumakua, I asked all who could to run check tests on my findings. Several have done so successfully, and one HRA was already ahead of me in his own experimenting.
I next proposed that we see what we could do when the contact was indicated as complete with the Aumakua. I ventured the hope that, having such a vivid proof of contact, we’d get enlightenment or inspiration, guidance etc. We have already seen that psychic “seeings” may be obtained, as in the case of the HULA DANCER and RITUAL. We make the contact. We ask for some form of enlightenment, and relax. We wait and watch expectantly for anything which may come into the mind, or may be seen psychically, or heard, tasted or smelled. Colors, music and straight tonal sounds have been reported, also the smell of perfumes. Vivid dreams which seem to have symbolic meaning have been given. (In case one gets such a dream, it is well upon awakening to ask the Aunihipili at once to give an explanation of the symbology of the dream or things seen in it, otherwise understanding is difficult.)

The Secret of the Golden Flower
A CHECK IS BEING RUN ON THE SEVERAL GREAT SECRETS OF HUNA
You will recall that on page 3 of the last Huna Vistas (No. 30, for February, 1962), I asked you to join me in working out a “methodology for opening the path” to the Aumakua. I also told of the method I would use in this piece of research work. I would hold my pendulum over my left palm and watch it register with swings, the progress of the act of accumulating mana, sending it to the Aumakua, and getting back the return flow as “the rain of blessings”. I said that we were now going over to the side of mysticism because we were going to ask for mental or psychic impressions which might give us directly or in symbol form the answers to such questions as we might ask during the sittings (after the return flow of mana had been sensed) of the Aumakua or high Guide Spirit watching over us. The pendulum would be used to get “yes, no and doubtful” answers from the Higher intelligences or wherever the answers might be derived. This matter of the pendulum and the Q &. A approach runs contrary to the earlier conclusion that the Aumakua does not answer us in such a direct manner, but through the Aunihipili, which in its turn gets a thought-form picture and passes it on to us in symbols or dream structures rather than in words. Only testing will tell us whether the earlier conclusion was right or wrong. (I am not forgetting the warnings of the few HRAs who fear that spirits may influence the pendulum answers or the “seeings”, but I must take that chance. Nor am I asking that what I “see” or sense or get via the pendulum be accepted by any of you. Rather, I present my findings and tests in the hope that you will make similar tests and tell me of your results so we can pool and compare information or guesses.) (In passing, let me say that I have been inclined to believe that the hearing of a voice speaking in the ear, when no person was near, could always be put down to the action of a spirit of lower degree by far than a Aumakua. HRA Verne Cameron decided a few years ago that we were wrong in our understanding of the Aumakua, and was strongly of the opinion that he was in contact with his own, also that it had given, through the Aurameter, a form of pendulum, its name. It speaks to him in emergencies, twice crying in his ear in English a warning of danger ahead while driving a car. Help is also given in map dowsing for water, oil and other minerals.) Read more
