BACK IN GUNNISON: After No TV, No Internet, at COTTONWOOD HOT SPRINGS…

My very talented Earth Acupuncture Apprentices and I found, separately, my first Ley Line in Colorado in 28 years.  Very unsuspecting, retested the following day and research to evolve and report on.

In the meantime, as these 2 apprentices and I tested and flagged and hammered copper L-rods, also known as staples, into the ground at Cottonwood Hot Springs?  Guests thanked us.  Some asked what we were dowsing for?  Yet, all sensed our loyalty to the waters and land there.

Thank you was said to me so many times I can not tell you.

And as it shall be.  The owner has poured her heart and soul into this land and especially the water there.  The labor it took her and others to build the pools with rocks and seats to sit on, stretch out on while still in the warmth of this Sacred Springs.

Yes, it all was fine?  Those of you who I encountered while soaking?

Bad mouth the place and ye’ shall never soak again!

Bring your screaming kids and let them jump and dive?  Move over to Mt. Princeton.

Just cuz it is your birthday?  You do not sneak in with wine.

All the Love, all the work it takes to keep this Sacred source of HOT WATER needs everyone of us to pitch in!

Like take a shower before soaking as these waters run into the river and on to other rivers.

We are BLESSED by these waters, to drink and to soak, to detox and release our words and thoughts and life challenges into the water, moving, downstream.

Thank you for choosing the number 10 Hot Springs in the world!

And thank you for your consciousness while visiting the property.
