Letter From The Editors

For August of 2020

Front Page





   The following series of five editorials focuses on the next dimension and offers a realistic look at just some of the elements helpful for those who seriously want to know what getting there involves. We call the series the ascension journals because it has been the desire from both of us to be on the same dimension at some point in our future. Karra has spent my whole life doing her best to guide me in the right direction while I have only had an active role in the process since the age of eighteen. Funny enough, it was crystals that started our journey, so it is only appropriate that they be the focus of this first journal. Before we begin there is a question of perception that must be addressed. Paging down through my Facebook news feed will inevitably bring along a post about someone predicting a change of dimensions any day now without a clear idea of what that will achieve. In fact, the entire eight years of channeling sessions with higher dimensional beings we have compiled and posted online in the Hades Base News so far is all based entirely on that concept. What it is like on a higher dimension, what is expected of oneself once it is reached, and what are the best ways of leaving the third dimension? We will answer the last question first since itís the easiest of the three. Simply put, there is no best way and it is only through learning enough lessons from living and dying during enough lives that ascension takes place prior to some reincarnation yet to occur. Now getting there isnít as hard as people think and once there, staying there isnít as easy as people think either. That last part and the two remaining questions above are the focus of these journals being as ascending to the next dimension is only half of the goal. Now, onto crystals.

      My foray into the world of natural energies began at the end of a class on the Kabbalah I had taken which I have spoken of in a previous editorial. The teacher of the class explored various theories about the Kabbalah, one of which was that it was handed down from Atlantean teachers, it was that old. From there, she introduced us to the concept of the great crystals of Atlantis and the various roles they played in the continentís mysterious history. Especially fascinating to me were the tales of the healing crystals that could perform miracles in treating the ailments of the people who required healing. That was enough to spark my interest and I began to read up on what the crystals of today could still do if only on a smaller scale. Efforts to attain crystals of my own were not as easy in the seventies since rock and gem stores were not yet a thing except in personal collections. That is what led me into taking a trip out to Santa Monica where a lady there had a number of crystals that she advertised for sale. Indeed she did and I was just amazed at the variety and amount of rocks and crystals she had scattered about the main room as you entered her house. She could tell my interest was great so she devoted several hours to giving me a lesson in what was obviously a topic she could spend days discussing. We went over record keepers, phantom quartz, healing crystals, energy crystals as well as some other stones lying around like amethyst and rose quartz. For me, this was all I had been reading about and it was clear this was important information that I felt a pull to learn. I bought a couple of energy crystals and an amethyst cluster to get started though she wasnít quite done with me. She had a rule when selling crystals to make sure they went to a good home and would be cared for after they arrived. She taught her customers how to clean and energize their crystals which is what she did with me plus adding a free lesson in crystal awareness so that I could become bond with my crystals. It has been a lesson that I continue to exercise whenever the spirit (or Karra) moves me to keep up the skill.

      She explained about natural energies, the aura, how crystals were built around a six-sided quartz matrix, and how that made them able to store the various forms of energy. She then ran her hand just above my arm and said it was so she could demonstrate being able to feel the energy of a personís aura. She then instructed me to do the same over her arm and she was right, I could feel an invisible force inches above her arm. Next, she laid out a crystal she said she had charged while explaining that energy could be felt from the crystal if one tuned out all distractions except the crystal. To demonstrate, she had me close my eyes while she changed the position of the crystal. Keeping my eyes closed, I swept my hand over the space above the crystal and could feel heat in one spot I passed over with a coldness on the other side. Sure enough, the crystal was directly below where my hand. She did it again with a different crystal and I found that the reverse was true, there was a chill as my hand passed over that particular spot. That trip to Santa Monica sparked a love affair with crystals that has stayed strong throughout the decades and the technique she showed me is still practiced to maintain that sensitivity. To those still yet to learn about the family of crystals and their energies, I would suggest trying your own experiment. Find any quartz crystal laying around, charged or uncharged, and set it in front of you. Putting your hand over your crystal, close your eyes and see if you feel an energy an inch or two from where it sits. Still canít feel the energy? Run your hand a few inches above your arm to become familiar with the natural energy of your aura. Now return to the crystal and try again to feel its aura. Once you do, continue to leave your eyes closed and move your hand to find the crystal again just from the energy it radiates.

   The last section of this and the next five editorials is to explain higher dimensional life experienced by those on the base and Sirius to how it relates to the subject at hand. For this first look, we will focus on life on Hades Base, a place far from of Sirius. That is the homeworld for most of those who have volunteered to help in the ascension those of us on Earth looking beyond the third dimension. As if in anticipation of this editorial, my life partner and bond-mate Karra gives an excellent description of home life on the base in the latest channeling session for August. Learning about dust, stains, and dirt being sucked out of the furniture to be recycled would be something out of our science fiction but, for them, it is just how things get clean. Some choose not to take advantage of the technology in favor of cleaning their apartments by themselves while others choose the automation. In all things, the responsibility is on those making the choice on which option to use. Such systems would not be out of reach on this planet, nor would the ability to solve many of mankindís problems if that was a unified goal. In a previous channeling session, Karra related one way in which crystals are used in the healing techniques on the base. When they have a broken arm or leg, they will incorporate crystals into the cast to speed up the healing. The original colonists in Atlantis were from Sirius and again we come back to where we started. Many incarnating now on this planet possibly spent one life or more at some point in its history.  So it is that the memory of crystals calls to us through the ages, wishing to share again in the exchange of energies that would only be to the benefit of all. So many kinds of energy, so many kinds of crystals. When sharing energies with a crystal, you begin to know and understand it better. Conversely, the more a crystal shares with you, it begins to get to know and understand you better so that a friendship is born.

In love, light, and crystal wisdom,

Russ and Karra
