~ Gatherings ~
Spiritual Friends of Awakened Hearts
Written by Dave (Phil) and Cyndi
(A special message from Dave and Cyndi about their recent expedition to meet in person with others who, like them, are a part of “The Gatherings.”)
Back in January of 2016, when Cyndi, Katherine and I (Dave) were working on the January 25th posting for the beginning of the Gatherings, I had the vision that we would receive many requests to be a part of something that was described in the January 25th Blue Star transmission as a process that would continue forever. The start of the Gatherings didn’t occur as I had envisioned and I felt a mild form of disappointment that like-minded persons didn’t respond to the invitation. There were responses and they came from all over the world, but not in the numbers that I had envisioned. However many of the respondents have taken the initiative to expand their circle of people that they have met on line through emails and such.
So why have some begun and others have not? I think in the latter case, people don’t really know how to begin and even though they wish to become part of a larger picture, (the non-ending picture) they hesitate to begin as they may not know how to start out to accomplish the task. And they don’t want it to appear to others that they don’t quite know how to begin. Isn’t this the way that we have generally conducted our lives to this point in time whenever we wish to try something new and different? Think about how you felt when you thought you needed to take a new job but were hesitant to explore the new possibilities that may have been available to you. Questions like; were you making the right choice or were there other better choices out there that you were not aware of.
Then you either jumped into something different or you stayed in the safe environment that you were used to and just stayed in the same job. Maybe down the road you regretted the decision to not make the change because events proved that the other position you passed on would have fitted your skill-set much better. Life is like that. You just don’t know for sure where you should be at any time. However, I believe in what I have read that says that you will be where you are meant to be at any given time.
So why would making a decision to pass on a job that would keep you in a place that you were meant to be, be the right choice when future events proved that the job you passed on would have fit your skill-set better? Maybe the personality needed the experience of observing that it should have taken the chance to make a change so that when future choices come about and they do, that the personality will have a better discernment on how to go about making a change. And when that new job becomes available, it indeed will be a better experience that the Soul wanted and hence the second job opportunity was the better choice.
So what is the writer trying to impart with this mumbo jumbo about taking a job or not? TAKING CHANCES is what we are to do in life. But don’t forget to use your discernment and intuition to evaluate the chance. (Going off halfcocked willy-nilly and see where the chips may fall is not what I meant either.) Playing it safe is very easy and we don’t really have to put much effort into staying pat in our lives. And we can spend another incarnation just wasting the opportunity to learn and make a difference.
Cyndi and I took a chance by announcing on the Awakened Hearts website about the route for a trip that we were taking to visit relatives in the Northwest U.S. in August of 2016. If we had decided to pass on the opportunity, it would have been easier to plan the trip as we had done the preceding three years and no one would have known the difference. No one! However that was not our choice and so we were delighted when we received a number of responses from people who wanted us to stop and have mini-Gatherings. What difference does it make if there are two, three or more; it is still a Gathering. God has said, “That whenever two or more are gathering in My name….”
How did agreeing to meet with other like-minded people change our trip? Well it did extend the trip as it took six weeks and 6300 miles of driving, but we have never had a road trip like this before. It was just wonderful and we made new friends at every stop that we made. We have learned more than we could have ever hoped for. We talked and listened in some of the most beautiful settings on this Earth Star Planet. I really just marvel at the beauty that we were allowed to be in and I thank Terra for her wonderful landscape. We hope to be able to travel again and meet with like-minded people in the future.
Now what was it like to meet with people we had never met and have a Gathering? Somehow we never thought that we would be hesitant as some reading this may be thinking they would be if they were in our shoes. As it turned out most of those we met have been on the spiritual path longer than we have. Some were accomplished at things that we can only marvel at as to how they do what they do. Did that intimidate us? No, we just used the opportunity to learn from them and it was a wonderful experience for us and I believe for them also. Most people really want to help others learn and the experience is good for both parties. In all Gatherings on this trip, we wished that there was more time to spend together, but we are grateful for all who invited us and took the time to meet with us. It was truly an experience that we will remember. We have been involved with six Gatherings so far since January 25, 2016. Each and every one has been a truly enjoyable experience and we felt that those that we met with had the same feeling.
So dear readers are you ready to take a chance and meet with others? I know most readers can say that there aren’t that many people near them and that they can’t travel like Cyndi and Dave do because, unlike Cyndi and Dave, they have to work to make a living. Work does have its requirements and we do have a real advantage being retired with a certain amount of means to travel. However we don’t fly because the expense is too great for us and that is why we always drive. And also by flying over this beautiful planet you don’t get to see the beauty that Terra offers in her varied landscapes.
Now there are persons who have requested that their contact information be listed as Gathering contacts on the Awakened Hearts website. And people interested in a Gathering can contact these people to express their interest. I believe there may be some hesitation by some who aren’t making the contact because they may feel that they don’t have the ability or maybe the time to meet with someone who could be a fair distance away from where they live. And so these people just pass on making the contact. But there IS a way to make contact without the time and expense of physically traveling to attend a Gathering.
The group known as the “Pacific Northwest Pipeline” has come up with a method that worked well for them. They set up a conference call program and they use this method for Gathering. Cyndi and I met with each member of this group individually before they had even met each other in person. During the summer months they had some scheduling issues due to differing vacation schedules. But they each said that they were ready to set up new schedules once all the summer travel plans for each had concluded. Folks this Gathering method works very well.
Now for those who have their contact information listed on the website, you might consider requesting that your contact information be listed under a banner of “Conference Call Gatherings”. In this way you are indicating that you are open to establishing a conference call arrangement for establishing Gatherings in your area. Please contact Celest and David to have your contact information grouped with others under a banner that would indicate that you are open to establishing a conference call arrangement type of Gathering.
Respondents to the contact information could then begin an email communication that may eventually lead to a conference call arrangement to conduct Gatherings. This is a way for people of like-mind to make email contact which could lead to developing phone relationships within the conference call program and maybe someday have the opportunity to meet in person in the future. This would take out the hesitancy of traveling to meet others that some may be feeling at the present time just because it does takes time and expense to do so. Good relationships may be developed to a point that the time and expense would be worth it to meet and Gather in person.
The conference call Gathering is a proven method that the Pacific Northwest Pipeline has formed in this fashion. And as I mentioned earlier we met with each of the three in their home environment even before they met each other on a personal visit. They make it work and have invited us to be a part of the conference calls in the future if our schedule permits.
Now those of you readers who frequently visit the Awakened Hearts website who have not responded to any invitation to join in on the Gatherings because you felt that traveling would require too much time to meet with other like-minded people might now have a different idea of how to establish a connection with others in the form of utilizing the conference call method of contacting.
So what did we talk about in our Gatherings? Anything and everything would about cover it. All of us told about how we began on the Spiritual path and what sources we have come in contact with during that time period. We related the timing of our awakening and the materials that we utilized during that period of our lives. It was interesting that most had used materials early on and then when new materials were found the older materials were put aside. Not because they weren’t good materials that should not have been used, only that they were replaced by better material to better fit to the level of experience that the individual required.
My belief was that this was a very beneficial part of the conversation for all parties. Were any of us intimidated by any of the others because someone had the perception that they were conversing with a more evolved personality? There was no intimidation apparent to us even though upon reflection after the Gathering, I would now say that Cyndi and I were probably not the more evolved personalities in the conversation. It didn’t make any difference to any of us; we just thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Did we help each other by being the teacher at times and at times being the student? YES! Did we realize it at the time that this was happening? I’m not sure about that because I can only answer this question for myself and the answer is that I did not realize it at the time. It was only upon reflection after the event that I realized that I had learned a great deal and that I hoped that I had helped the others in some small way. And this is the real value to the Gatherings. Learn by being the teacher at times and being the student at other times.
Until next time, Phil, aka Dave

Note from Celest and David;
If you would like to be a part of “The Gatherings” in this aspect or wish to start up your own “Gatherings” please email us at
and we will do our best to share your contact information with those who have already stepped forward to be facilitators. YOU SHOULD ALSO contact the individual “facilitators” directly; all their contact information is posted on the Awakenedhearts website.
Any facilitator who has a desire to expand their groups by adding the option for voice communication to their ever-expanding “living as a true human Being” life résumé PLEASE contact us and we will put a note by your name and appropriate contact information expressing your willingness to do so.
Remember, time IS an illusion (everything happens in The NOW, here-forth eternally and fondly referred to as The Golden NOW) and distance as well can be viewed as an illusion if you take into account the advances in technology, which we should all use as the “tools” they were intended to be. Also the fact that most people these days have free long-distance calling on their phones “Bridges the Gap” of perceived physical limitations. Likewise those who “live across the water” can utilize the vast reach of the internet and utilize phone services such as Skype or other “free conference calls” phone-lines and websites which are now becoming readily available. So you see there really is no reason why any of us should feel alone when we are all merely a thought, or a click, or a call away. There is no need to wait to connect with one another during “The Party of an Infinite Kind” we will all be attending once this current incarnation is over to once again be united together. Celebrate life for the “GIFT” it truly is. Learn to “Live in the Moment, not for the moment.” Most of those whom we call our dearest friends we met through the internet and over time have forged relationships with which will continue into infinity and last throughout eternity. The fact that we may never meet in person during the course of this life-experience does not negate in any way the fondness and closeness we feel for each of them.
WE OURSELVES will also be willing to take part in these “calls” as our time allows.
So what are you waiting for, the multidimensional UNIVERSAL Time Clock is tick, tick, ticking…
Salude and “Gather” because YOU CAN!

Notice of May 30, 2016 pertaining to the month of AUGUST 2016
Dave and Cyndi are part of the group of three which includes Katherine that developed the first notice of the Gatherings that was posted on Awakened Hearts in late January, 2016. This group currently is the only one overseeing any of “The Gatherings” in the state of Texas and surrounding areas.
Dave and Cyndi wish now to disclose the more involved relationship they have had with Awakened Hearts for some time now. Since June of 2013, Dave has been a contributor to the Awakened Hearts website by writing articles under the pen name of Phil. These articles were written by Dave and edited by Cyndi and are posted under “Gifts of Experience” on the website. We are truly grateful for the experiences we have had since the beginning of the writing and the posting of the articles to the website.
Dave and Cyndi are retired and travel around the country visiting friends and family, mostly during the summer months. We are planning a trip during the month of August to the Northwest to visit our family member who lives in the Washington/Idaho area. Our plan is to leave northeast Texas and travel west through Texas, tentatively over to the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area, then through Southern Colorado over to Colorado Springs. From there north to the Denver/Fort Collins area, west to Utah, up through Boise, Idaho and on north to the Pullman/Moscow/Spokane area. This route is similar to that which we have taken in the past when traveling to the Northwest.
We would like to meet with any person(s) who would like to do so and would ask that you contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org in the near future to facilitate the planning of our venture. The sooner we can gauge any interest the more we can establish our travel plans and set meeting dates in the various areas. We will be in the Pullman/Moscow area for a two week period of time and could weekday travel to a meeting within a 150 mile radius from that area.
We welcome anyone reading this website to contact us at the above email address to express their interest in meeting for a short time for coffee or lunch or dinner. We are flexible and willing to meet one or more during these meetings. Again we would need a little time to plan our trip and would appreciate an early indication of any interest to meet from anyone reading this message. Once the trip is firmed up we will post another notice on the website.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Dave/Phil and Cyndi/Kaye
