Huna Vistas Bulletin 35
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.
Dr. Westlake organized a research team a few years ago and decided to try to go directly to a Higher Intelligence for help in exploring the “Radionics” field. He made use of a fine natural psychic, and the pendulum and the “Question & Answer” method was used to get information. The story, as told in the book, is a fascinating one. In time, with a combination of information given via the Q & A method and reliance on what seems to have been information given by way of inspiration, the discovery was made that patterns or designs cut into form from wood had a strange power to direct what may be called “radiations”, for want of a more exact word.
The patterns were tested as two dimensional and then three. The possibility that the patterns act without the necessity of having a psychic for an operator gave rise to the need for new and different guesses at a fresh set of explanations. One pattern which had been made of several parts, was found to send out some form of force all by itself, and the parts were, thereafter, separated to break up the radiation pattern when experiments were not being carried on.
On the beat of the several patterns which were evolved, it was found that by placing a blood sample of a patient in its central position, and by placing small amounts of basic remedies around the outer section of the pattern, the patient at a distance appeared automatically to select the needed something from the right remedies and use them to bring about the healing. As the actual substances did not fly through the air or vanish from the containers, the question arose as to what DID leave the medicines and go to the patient? Some radiated force seems to be the best answer, but this calls for complicated answers involving frequencies and so on.
Death broke up the research team and the work came to a stop. But I have just received the good news that a new team has been formed and that the work is now continuing. Dr. Westlake writes that as yet the work to not far enough along to justify giving out the details of the construction of the “patterns” or information as to just how they can be used. This will come later, when the field has been fully explored. New and different patterns may be developed, given time.
Dr. Westlake, however, gives this most encouraging piece of information for those of us who believe with na kahuna that “eating companion” spirits often bother the living, sometimes slightly, and sometimes to the point of complete obsession. He writes, “Theoretically, these therapeutic patterns should be able to deal with these obsessional states caused by ‘eating companions’ . . . ” That is, indeed, good news. The increase in obsessional afflictions has ceased to indicate a “crying need” for a cure: the need is now at the “howling screaming” level. Hasten the day when the right pattern and right remedies can be used to get help for the many who are so deeply afflicted by the “devils” on “the other side”. It seems possible that some substance might be found that would repel spirits with its radiations, while causing no injury to the living victim. In the mental hospitals they are experimenting with many new drugs which seem to cause physical changes in the patients that prevent the obsessing entities from taking over and controlling them. Of course, no doctor is supposed to believe in the existence of such entities, so the research cannot go forward as it should.
Several times in the past I have mentioned the”Bug Chasing” radionics instrument in which a photograph of a field was placed in an instrument and the dials set to radiate out to the field some essence from such things as a leaf from a eucalyptus tree. In a letter I once had from the gentleman who had worked up quite a successful business protecting fields of cotton from the boll weevil, he said that when the radiation from the tree leaf was present, the weevils starved rather than eat the radiated bolls – or at least that was the theory he went on. In passing, let me say that governmental authorities sided with the weevils and obtained a permanent injunction against this method of extermination.
When the Ballards were going full blast with their “I Am” organization a few years ago, I recall being told by one of the HRAs who had gone over to them that one of the strict rules was against the eating of garlic, as the “Ascended Masters” were offended by members who smelled of the stuff. This may or may not be true, and there may or may not be such “Masters” to offend, but it illustrates what I have in mind and if we could find something sufficiently obnoxious to spirits, but even enjoyed by the living, something might be accomplished. We know that some things attract spirits, such as drink, and we see many obsessional drunkards who are hagridden in this manner. All of which brings us back once more to the problem of just what it is that garlic or alcohol could give off other than its actual substance and which a spirit can sufficiently absorb to affect it. The same applies to medicines and the 12 basic mineral salts which are common to all organic life, and which, with the Bach Flower Remedies and perhaps some Homeopathic medicines are being used with the special pattern by Dr. Westlake in the course of treatment.
I also recall a strange thing which HRA Verne Cameron, inventor of the Aurameter, discovered and was able to demonstrate to me. (I have discussed this before in the bulletins, of course.) He found that “mind over matter” applied beautifully to the invisible matter such as that named aka or “shadowy” by na kahuna, and of which the bodies of spirits are made up. He has found such bodies with the use of his Aurameter when spirits have hidden themselves as a test of his prowess. He also found that he could locate and determine by their form the nature of thought-form structures made by his friends – such things as mental images of cubes, balls and vases. This led to an experiment of great significance in which he mentally created a large cylinder. His Aurameter would move its horizontal pendulum away from its surface at any point when brought close, in this way showing its shape and size. He then put out his hands and mentally pictured the cylinder as he lifted it and placed it at a different spot in the room. Again the Aurameter showed where it stood. For the final demonstration, he commanded mentally that the cylinder show its location by exerting a gravity pull on another of his dowsing instruments which responds to additional gravity pulls sent up by underground streams of water. This instrument has a spring balanced pendulum which, when pulled off balance by the slightest increase in gravitational pull, falls from a vertical position to a horizontal. After the gravity had been built into the thought-form cylinder, the gravity indicator would let drop its pendulum each time it was brought over the cylinder.
Just what the significance of this manipulation of gravity may be, is hard to say, but my guess is that it is in some way part and parcel of the body of evidence being gathered which shows that there are substances and forces which physical tests will not show, but which the Aunihipili, with its psychic sense, can recognize. To what extent the Aunihipili of Verne Cameron is involved in causing the pendulum of the gravity measuring instrument to fall, has not been learned. One may guess that we have an invisible counterpart on the level of the invisible aka substances for all the magnetic, gravitational and electrical forces with which we are familiar, to say nothing of flowing mana or vital force and perhaps forces which are related to the movement of various grades of the shadowy or etheric materials.
From na kahuna we learn that the three kinds of mana flow along aka cords. From the fact that mana may be accumulated and stored in the body or in some substances, we may be permitted to guess that where there is aka or other invisible substance, there must be some form of mana or force, and that this combination can take an impress of consciousness which can remain with it for at least a time and direct its actions or control its state of being. In other words, we might have a mental creation such as a cylinder, which would contain force and a unit of consciousness (perhaps by remaining connected to the man who made it by an aka cord along which the directing consciousness, centered in the Aunihipili, could continue to give directives to keep the actions going and the condition or form of the matter as created in the mental action unchanged) so that the whole might resemble an entity of sorts – this entity also having the characteristic of “storage”, as has mana, and of tincturing or interpenetrating denser materials, as do the aka bodies the body of flesh.
If this set of conjectures holds sufficient water, we can now go back to consider the “patterns” constructed from wood by Dr. Westlake and his fellow investigators. Even if a wooden pattern might not send out any force of its own accord, we may ask whether or not it could be used as a place to store an aka mana entity such as we have envisioned. Further, can we not then understand how this pattern, charged with the entity, might be able to show the automatic actions in healing which are observed by the Westlake group over and over?
When we come to question the nature of the forces which work when a pattern is activated, we come upon a most intriguing problem. It was found that the patterns set up a relationship with the patient whose “sample” was placed on the pattern, and that this could be measured in terms of COLOR. The twelve basic colors, as specified by Rudolph Steiner in his study of the ethers and the spectrum related to them, were placed around the circumference of one of the patterns, not by painting on colors, but by writing there the names of the tints. Pure tints and colors are almost impossible to obtain in paint or transparent glass. The inate intelligence of the pattern entity was found to use the color scale as we do the pendulum code in making a Psychometric Analysis reading. Once the colors were ready to be used as a code, the pendulum could be used over the pattern to find out what was ailing the patient in terms of color. This indicated, on the face of the matter, that color was acting as a force which was divided into kinds, one for each tint. Whether we can consider light and color components as force in terms of pattern activity, I would not venture to guess. Let me quote some passages from Patterns of Health page 148.
“With the coming of the patterns and the Static Diamond in particular Major Blythe Praeger and I found, to our great surprise, that apparently we had a perfect instrument for giving colour treatments without having to worry about actual colors at all.
“This was possible, as each colour had a definite position on the pattern. It was only a question of placing the blood spot of the patient in position, and colour treatment could be given on any of the four planes, using the full range of the twelve color spectrum of Steiner, viz. Peach, Infra Red, Red, Orange, Yellow, Yellow Green, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet, Ultra Violet, and back to Peach.
“The position of the colours on the pattern already being known, it only remained to find out radiesthetically what colour was required for the treatment, on which plane or level, and the timing. (Note: On pages 134 35 we read, “Eventually it was found possible, in addition to the derivative instruments, to get a series of patterns of the various levels – the spiritual, the mental formative, the soul emotional and the physical, which, as the same master pattern ran throughout, gave quite clearly a series of comparable relationships, and the causal chain connecting them. This series of connecting patterns of the various levels we called simply ‘Man’. “)
“With this explanation let me give the second example. A patient who had had a skin irritation for six weeks said it was becoming intolerable and asked me to treat her. Colour therapy was indicated on Violet.
“On testing her radiesthetically we found green to be her dominant color, while both Indigo and Infra Red were contra indicated, i.e. for some reason she was having an excess of both colors, which presumably was responsible for the irritation.
“Treatment for seven and a half minutes was then given on Violet. After treatment there was no reading on Indigo, and later in the afternoon it was found that Violet was now her dominant, i.e. she had jumped from Green to Violet.
“During the evening a telephone message was received from her to say she was feeling on top of the world, very well indeed, and for the first time in six weeks the the irritation had completely gone – to her intense surprise. We had many other cases which, when treated in this way with color, gave excellent results. Color therapy, if indicated, usually is most effective, and certainly easy to give.
The therapeutic results, which in varying ways and degrees were obtained with all the healing patterns experimented with, can, I think, best be expressed in this way – and I should make it clear that it is not what I had expected as an ordinary medical man. Given the full co-operation of the patient, the general effect of the therapy is to give release to the soul, to give a sense of independence, so that those patients who have been seeking health for years and have been dependent on other people, suddenly say that they feel they can now be responsible for themselves and can tackle their own problems with occasional help and assistance. Whether physical improvement takes place appears to be of less importance; it is rather one of those things which is added to those who seek first the Kingdom of Heaven.”

TREATMENT ON THE PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND HIGHER LEVELS, as described by Dr. ‘Westlake, is far in advance of treatment on the physical and mental. We immediately think of the aka bodies of the three selves as substantial enough to be changed in some subtle way by subtle radiations, these involving frequencies, resonance and perhaps things of which we do not dream as yet. In the July, 1962, issue of FATE, pages 18-19, I have been reading about a Charles Brook, who calls himself an “Impulse Changer”. I read, “He believes bad habits are protected and perpetuated by the nervous system and can best be eradicated by altering the nervous impulses. Mr. Brook does this simply by placing the tips of his fingers against the client.” People and horses are treated in this way, the Queen’s race horses being corrected in the matter of bad habits. Unfortunately, the article gives us no information as to the action of mind used with the touching with the finger tips. One wonders whether the mental part of the work includes suggestion given telepathically, or could the very form of the man make him a “pattern” which sends out corrective treatments. As the effects seem to be similar in horse or man, one also wonders whether the aka body of both is changed, together with memory units surrounding the bad habits. If we draw on Huna for an explanation of the “soul”, we get the Aumakua for the man, and can hardly credit a man in the flesh treating a Aumakua. However, the man might do something on the physical mental level that would help the Aumakua bring about the correction, or part of it. With the horse the Aumakua would be replaced by a “Group Soul” or apprentice Aumakua having the supervision of a group of horses. One becomes lost in speculations owing to the fact that there is a great lack of definite information.
ONE THING SEEMS CERTAIN, however, and this is that when a basic physical or mana force is projected by mind or pattern, it reacts on a variety of things, subtle and more subtle. It is like a billiard ball which strikes other billiard balls and sends them rolling – only to have them strike still others, and the impulse divide and change motion and strength. The balls move in time and space, and that combination is involved. To complete the picture we may say that the balls give off the colors of a spectrum and the sounds of a musical scale. These fade on the physical level, but they set in motion invisible balls on their own levels, these striking aka bodies and “emergent magnetic fields” to open paths for appropriate movements of energies.
SUBSTANCES GROW LESS DENSE as we leave the physical and touch the invisible where spirits live in shadowy bodies so thin that one may guess that much less energy is needed to change those bodies. We may say that only two things go unchanged as we rise to the rarefied from the physical.
These are consciousness and the forms built into aka substance to preserve the memories which are stored as linked thought-forms in the aka body of the Aunihipili. (The Aumakua seems to have a better way of preserving memories – a way which includes ability to see into the future – perhaps a direct knowledge of past and of the crystallized portions of the future.) If we are right in accepting Huna basics, and if the consciousness and its memories remain the same in life or after physical death, then we have left the two possibilities proposed by the fact that healing can be done through the patterns.
The first possibility is that Dr. Westlake is correct in thinking that disease is caused by something which blocks the free and natural flow of the life force. These forces may be blocked in the physical body, but with such slight amounts of energy, the aka body would be the place to look for changes which would allow the mana to flow freely in it. The aka body being the mold which surrounds the body and its cells, it follows that once the former is unblocked, the latter would be changed in a similar way. The second possibility is that some form of suggestion removes the blocks, but this would have to be unconscious suggestive action on the part of the operator of the pattern and while not suspected, may have to be kept in mind. The pattern as an entity might exert some suggestive power. (In the Hudson sleep suggestion method we have an automatic suggestive action carried out by the Aunihipili of the operator, and this might point to a similarity of mechanics.)
A THIRD POSSIBILITY is presented by Dr. Westlake’s theory that the healing and unblocking action of the activated pattern is affective on levels of consciousness where there is an admixture of rarefied material which corresponds only in part to the Huna aka version. His classification is: (Page 135 again.) “… the spiritual, the mental formative, the soul/emotional and the physical.” The first level listed fits that of the Aumakua, the second has all the marks of the Auhane, and the third fits the Aunihipili exactly. It would seem that the third possibility would have to be tied in with the Huna belief that the Aumakua (representing the “spiritual level”?) must be furnished with the stronger mana of the Aunihipili in order to use its magic power to make instant or slow changes in the aka bodies and then in the physical counterpart. All that is needed to give strength to this angle of conjecture is the proof that an activated pattern, as an entity, can draw mana from the operator in sufficient amounts to allow the Aumakua to do the unblocking which brings healing. We may suppose that the Aumakua might change the mana it receives to the high mana state and use it in some way to bring into play the aka forms which house the atomic substances in the various remedies placed about the pattern, including the use of the thought-forms of the color tints impressed on the pattern substance by the mind of the operator.
THIS LAST SPECULATION is given strength by the fact that some invisible part of a medicine can be carried along a connecting aka thread by a flow of mana. In the many experiments of the late, L. E. Eeman, in England, people were repeatedly placed in his “relaxation circuit” with only a string connecting them to a bottle of medicine or chemical, and in due time the person tested would react as if dosed with the substance. In seance rooms the mana exchange has been known to carry from sitters to medium enough nicotine to sicken her.
IN ANY DISCUSSION OF DR. WESTLAKE’S WORK we would miss seeing one of the most important parts of the picture which he presents of his work if we failed to give full consideration to something that backgrounds for him all the rest. This is his deep conviction that Jesus brought to mankind a means of redemption from wrong and materialistic thinking – this in contrast to true thinking made possible by contact with the level of Spiritual Consciousness. Let me quote from page 168.
“… The redemption of human thinking is the completion of the spirit initiation of mankind in Christ.” (From his quoted lines from Canon Shepherd, who was explaining the teachings of Rudolph Steiner.) This brings me to my last point – how can we seek to avoid the inevitable error in all human thinking? – the reason why the redemption of thinking is so necessary.
“Let me say quite simply that I believe such a redemption is only possible through Christ and his redemptive powers, as revealed to us in the profound mystery of Golgatha.
“All human thinking, since the Fall of Man, is liable to error and untruth. Only through the Spirit of Truth can we be preserved in this materialistic age from falsehood and destructive thinking. I believe it is literally true, in so far as science is the search for truth, that Christ – the Way, the Truth and the Life – is a scientific necessity, and this applies equally, strange as it may seem, to such a humble science as Radiesthesia.”
I COMMENT. There seems to be some connection in Dr. Westlake’s views between the redemptive element in Christianity and unblocking of the flow of vital force. He does not appear to work entirely for the things we connect with the idea of “conversion” and the changed mental approach to life or “re-thinking”. This idea of a complete “change of heart” as a free gift of Christ is looked upon (if I understand what he writes correctly) as something difficult to attain. He proposed in his work with his team to learn the secrets of the patterns to make an approach via the pendulum and intuition to the highest or Christ level of consciousness. The Q & A method was then used and its success depended, as he tells us, on being able to see clearly enough to formulate the right questions. (My recent experience in trying for Aumakua contact and guidance agrees entirely on this point.) He also found, in using the Brunler scale and “Biometer” measuring system, what I found much later: that the higher level of consciousness centers in the 500 degree part of the scale. This is very important and shows the background of the work more clearly. Let me again quote, this time from pages 128 and 129.
“The sensitive in the early sessions used a de la Warr ‘stick box’ but later, when my wife took over, a pendulum was used with a simple Yes and No chart.
“As the work went forward a curious thing happened. It was found that, in the case of the sensitive especially, and in the other members of the group to a somewhat lesser degree, the level of consciousness began to rise, as measured on the Brunler scale. What had started off as an ordinary functioning of the dowsing faculty on the second level, already described, ceased after a while to be radiesthetic sensibility and became rather a receptivity of understanding, I.E. it ceased to be either physical dowsing or divination. When the Brunler reading reached 508 (degrees), the sensitive arrived at a third and new level, but now appeared to be on a level of full consciousness and became independent of the limitations of both time and space, in the sense that it was possible to recover the past, and neither witnesses nor actual remedies were required, and orientation (facing north, etc.) was unnecessary. This state has been described as the eighth level of consciousness. (Note: Huna would call it the third or that of the Aumakua, I believe. The “eighth” may be a Steiner classification. )
“There appeared to be still higher levels, of Clairvoyance and Clairaudience, but not in the ordinary psychic sense, as the vision and the speech were inward and not outward. It is the inner vision and the still, small voice which is apprehended in full consciousness, and not apparitions or the trumpet of the seance room under trance conditions.
“We found that the technique of Q & A, already described, was particularly appropriate to this third level of receptivity, as a whole new world of knowledge and understanding appeared to be available without the limitations of the lower levels of consciousness, and this technique was in fact used to elucidate various problems.
“… the pendulist working on the higher levels requires receptivity rather than sensitivity and is conditioned by a conscious understanding of the implications of truth. What has emerged is thus a combination of receptivity, knowledge, discrimination, reason, imagination, and, not least, common sense. It has, moreover, given access to those higher levels of consciousness which we learnt in all reverence to recognize as the threshold of contact with the mind of the Christ. It became increasingly clear to us that the truth needed for these times can only be obtained and be forthcoming from this Source.”
COLOR IN RADIESTHESIA was mentioned in an article by James Brownlee, in the July, 1962 issue of “The Journal of Borderland Research” (which is the former Round Robin of the late Meade Layne. Now carried on by Riley Crabb, still covering the new and unexplored “borderland” materials. $5 per year. P.O. Box 548, Vista, Calif.) Let me quote from the excellent article which deals with Radiesthesia in New Zealand, but touches on other lands and various discoveries.
“Mosely was a student of plant diseases. He related these through the fabric of the then quite primitive radiesthetic knowledge to human diseases. In a sense it may be said that he made an orderly progression from the mineral through the plant to the animal and human kingdoms. Mosely’s studies laid special emphasis on the effects of the radiations of plants and their leaves and flowers to human diseases. He was remarkably successful in radiesthetic healing. He held that radium radiation caused malignancy and he discovered a plant with a radiation factor sufficiently strong to neutralize radium radiation. Mosely obtained remarkable results by placing these plant emanations near to patients with malignancies.
“Herbert George contributed to the discovery that disease vibrations or frequencies could be paralleled and the complaint eliminated through the use of colored cottons in specific lengths. Colors and lengths were radiesthetically determined. George is believed to have been the first man to discover and use this method of treatment, now widely applied in New Zealand radiesthetic practice …
“In New Zealand, radiesthesia clinics exist in virtually all the main towns. They vary in size. Some treat patients two or three at a time, others handle thirty or more. Some of these clinics specialize in color therapy, using the colored cotton method discovered by Herbert George. Broadcasting treatments are also gaining increasing popularity. The patients are issued small coils by the healer and given the colored cottons (threads? mfl) and the times to use them. Patients living in the back country have found this method enormously convenient and beneficial. Many farmers in New Zealand have placed radiesthetic coils at various points on their land to facilitate stock treatment. The farmers are responsibe for one very interesting development, this being the making of colored cottons corresponding to the 12 biochemical cell salts. After the soil is tested for cell salt deficiencies, the required color or colors are then placed in the coils already sited on the farmer’s land. Where this method is used, there is a notable saving in top dressing and fertilizer.”
CORRECTED SOIL CONDITIONS are said, in the article, to give better crops and animals, and benefit the health of those people fed by these farms as well as the farmers living on the farms. Again I quote from the article: “The farmers who have used radiesthetic methods have been able to rid themselves of many seasonal stock complaints such as bloat or facial eczema. NZ farmers lose tremendous amounts of money through these seasonal ailments, which radiesthesia can, demonstrably, control. “In New Zealand there are no laws to restrict the use of the practices described. In fact, the government seems to favor such use, especially in the local version of socialized medicine.
FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN THE KABALA AND MEDITATION, Riley and Judith Crabb, have included with the July issue of their journal, the introductory sheets of a planned set of instructions in mediation after the “Western Tradition” based on the Kabala of the early Jews. They promise concluding instructions with the next issue. They report much benefit from the use of the system which they describe. Meditations are aimed at learning to see the realities on three levels of the “self”, the Emotional, Mental and Spiritual. The physical is involved as the base of operations and is cleansed. While this is but distantly related to Huna and its more direct approach to control on the levels of the Aunihipili and Auhane and contact with the Aumakua – it looks most promising. It has an added element from other Oriental religions, and one can, of course, translate any terms and concepts into the Huna counterparts and go right ahead. Mrs. Crabb has been deep in the Kabala for the past few years and should know the subject extra well. Riley is open to what he may find to be Truth regardless of the source, and backgrounds his studies with Theosophy, much as I do mine with Huna. I would not be surprised to see these instructions expanded in due time to cover much more ground, resulting perhaps in a regular “course”.
MY OWN DAILY MEDITATION still takes the form of making contact with the Aumakua and sending mana. The pendulum in my hand registers the process from the start of accumulating mana to the completion of the contact and the return mana flow. I give thanks and then go into the Q & A system to try to get information concerning my writing and other things. I also take advantage of the contacts to ask help or healing for some on my “special” list in the TMHG work. I often wait to see if anything is given such as the mental picture of the hula dancer, but since then almost nothing has been sensed. I make no effort to meditate on things belonging to the mental or Auhane level, as my days are more or less occupied with the ordering of my thoughts, plans, studies and the like. Nor do I give special time to meditating on my Aunihipili, who is responsible for my emotions. I suppose that I would if I realized that my Aunihipili was in need of a close inspection and some very special training.
THE PAPERBACK BOOK YOUR DREAMS which HRA Hal Falvey found so helpful in giving the meaning of dreams, and which I had such trouble finding, has been located for me. Hal sent me one and two more came from New York, so I now have two extras if anyone wants one. I have tried interestedly to find in the book a dream to match ones I have night by night, and for some reason or other, my dreams seem to be different. I have failed to dream of a single thing which is listed, for instance, on page 63: “Greenhouse, Greeting, Greyhound, Grocery, Guest, Guillotine (I can’t understand how I missed dreaming of this one in over a month of trying), Guitar, Gun and Gutter.”
WATCH YOUR STEP WITH YOUR AUMAKUA. Brethern and Sistern, I urge you to watch carefully for bumps and pitfalls when using the Q & A method with the pendulum after making contact with the Aumakua. Care must be taken lest you contact the Aunihipili or a cynical spirit instead of the Aumakua, and be given wrong answers which may throw you for a loop. Also, one does well to walk with the greatest circumspection when following what seems to be a straight directive from the Aumakua. To illustrate, let me tell you what recently happened to me. (I still think I hear peals of heavenly laughter at times as the incident is remembered.)
As some of you know through my habit of using “tinned letters”, our house had a week’s vacation back beyond the desert and in the higher country of the Navaho Reservation. We had such a good time that as soon as we got home we began to talk longingly of a repeat performance. But the weather is growing warm and from now through September, crossing the desert to get to the cooler levels beyond, is an ordeal. We talked about the possibility of trading in our 95,000 mile chariot and getting something equally sturdy with an air cooler. We agreed that the idea was foolish, but I drove past three used car lots, and chanced to see the twin of our car, but equipped with an air conditioner. It had gone only 63,000 miles, and the smiling man in charge agreed to trade his car for mine for a third the price of an air cooler. It looked too good to be true, but I couldn’t get the possibility of a good deal out of the back of my mind, even when we all agreed that the idea was foolish.
Shortly after seeing the other car, it came to my mind at the end of a Q & A session with my Aumakua. Fully expecting to get a strong No in answer, I asked if it would be a good idea to make the effort to trade for the other car. I got a good Yes. I was still surprised when I went cautiously to the car lot and asked to take the car out for a test on the road. What I now cannot understand is how they ever expected anyone to take the car. Its engine knocked, it banged top and bottom over bumps and had three loud squeeks. I got over wanting it in five short minutes. Later that day I made my Aumakua contact and among questions, asked whether I had been given a Yes on making the trade just to get me to go to see how impossible the other car was …. and to get it off my mind. To this I got a most enthusiastic YES. So be warnedl Watch your step if you wish to be in the clear on ideas you know are unsound, and if you do not wish to be made laughing stock, even by the loving and ever kind na Aumakua.
“SPEAKING FOR THE GOD”, as a healing method, and discussed at considerable length in the last H. V., has been reported on in a letter just in from HRA H. P. in Florida. He writes: “After accumulating and sending mana to you as center in the TMHG period, and thanking the Beloved Aumakua for aid, I looked at Mr. Putser P. (the ill family cat who is almost human and was said to have a virus infection for which little could be done) who was perched in the kitchen window near me as I sat in the garden under the stars. I said with feeling, ‘BE THOU HEALED’. The instant I uttered the words there began an action somewhere near my feet and flowed the entire length of my body, upward in a series of waves that lasted fully 30 seconds. I literally tingled all over and with it was a great feeling of joy and peace. Later I told my wife, who had been in the house working on the TMHG, and as I spoke my entire body became covered with ‘goose pimples’ while the waves and tingling were repeated as before. I can report that Mr. P. P. is showing marvelous improvement. He seemed to know what we were doing,” MFL

HRA Thomas Langan P.O. Box 613, Inglewood, Calif., has asked me to ask if any of the HRAs can tell him where to get a book written by J.J. Owens in 1893, titled Psychography. It deals with slate writings given through the mediumship of Fred Evans who was horn in Liverpool, England, in 1862. May have been reprinted by an English publisher.
TAROT CARDS are offered for $2.25 post paid instead of the original price of $5, by Lighthouse Book Co., Box 411, Huntington Station, N. Y. These are the ones I recommend, duplicating the Waite pack. These cards are offered at a cut rate because the transparent boxes used for them are broken or missing, but the cards are O.K. This firm located an 1865 Hawaiian/English Dictionary for me recently, and specializes in finding rare books. They put out a book list now and then of buys from private libraries which are being broken up. I got some fine books for my continuing study of Egyptian Huna traces, and at very reasonable prices.
LOVE’S RETREAT, which is a small hill resort loved by metaphysical students, and which is run by HRA Madah Love, requests that the HRAs be invited to spend a few days or longer there, meeting like minded people. Write for information or to make reservations. The address is “Love’s Retreat”, Lake Rabun, Lakemont, Ga. Open from early May to sometime in the Fall.
A NEW BOOK BY HRA DR. JOHN MANAS was sent to be reviewed, and overlooked last month. It is an exceptionally well bound and printed paperback, with pictures Title: FLYING SAUCERS and SPACE MEN. $2.00 postpaid, from Phythagorean Society, 152 West 42nd St., New York 36, N.Y.
Dr. Manas has done his usual good job of combing the available material. He tells in brief sections about all that is to be known of the Flying Saucer matter right from the first, showing that there is much evidence to prove the verity of the UFOs as well as many unverified claims made by people whose word is all that one has to back up their statements that they have made contact with Space Men, ridden with them in their saucers, or received metaphysical and factual information from them which was good enough to incorporate in “courses” and be sold to all curious enough to buy. This field, which I believe is covered now by the many “Understanding Groups” which have been organized, and of which we have a flourishing one in Vista, is well reviewed, even to comment on the supposed inhabitants of the great worlds beneath the earth’s surface. If the reader is a late arrival in these fields of fact and fancy, the book will bring him up to the minute on all that is of real or possible importance. It goes on to consider space travel in general and especially in the new rockets which we are building with the hope of reaching the moon, and, eventually Mars or Venus. He gives a scientific digest of what is known of outer space radiations and atmospheres. With these known or supposed facts for a springboard, he takes off to make a wonderful Swan Dive into the pool of Speculative Metaphysics. Here he is entirely at home and in his own element. He can and does lay down the law on all fronts and levels from ether to ether and level to level never at all reluctant to state his facts without the slightest effort to prove that they are facts. That is fine for all who are willing to accept “teachings” “right from the horse’s mouth”, but for my part I prefer Huna – something which HRA Dr. Manas seems not to have known, or, if he has, he prefers his own system. I read: “The Creator consists of a triune or triadic Spiritual Principle – Father, the Divine Will or Logos; the Divine Wisdom or the Holy Spirit.” I remark grumpily, “Who says?” MFL
