By Solomon G. Gizaw, Gateway Participant, December 1–7, 2018
I came asking. I came loaded with questions. ... I came to master what the mysterious Bob Monroe mysteriously called the Focus levels.
The global stage, where the difference in time and space has been narrowed tremendously, brought this batch of Gateway participants, of December 1 to 7, 2018, to The Monroe Institute not by accident, but by a synchronized design unbeknownst to all of them before this time. In short, a keen interest of sixteen individuals converged in this Sacred Space, eager to expand, experience, explore, know, and understand the multilayers of Consciousness.
No wonder the beacon sounded as far away as Australia, South Africa, Colombia, Thailand, India, Ethiopia, and on all corners of the US vast land allowing the participants to be able to exchange experiences across times.
The Monroe Institute, destined by Divine purpose to enhance and share the knowns, and patiently engage in revealing the unknowns with all participants have become instrumental in facilitating this deep desire of the group by assigning the best three entities.
The vibrant Marinda Stopforth, the perceptive Allyn Evans and the resourceful Fred Rible, all three assuming the driver's seat have combined their knowledge and skills to drive these participants in the Interstate of Consciousness carefully and safely. If the participants had come to this Institute propelled by Divine Providence and curious by virtue of their many years of varied experiences, they undoubtedly would owe their further growth to the efforts of these three wise entities.
I am definitely going out as a different person from the one I came in.
I came asking. I came loaded with questions. I came to morph through my current cocoon of this physical body into becoming the butterfly of my soul. I came to finish the war of liberation of my soul from the chains of the daily grind to sustain this gross physical body by putting bread and butter on the table, albeit unsuccessfully to say the least. I came to master what the mysterious Bob Monroe mysteriously called the Focus levels.
After a week of my stay and at the conclusion of the Gateway this day of December 6/2018, I may still have loaded questions. But for sure, I am asking them from a different vantage point.
Numbers are limiting. So seem the numbers of the Focus levels. Of course, it is true that I was able to peak through the vails of Focus 10 to Focus 21. But who knows, if I have not gone far beyond the numbers during this process. Isn't it true that I had a treat of my life in the blue landscape that is Focus 15 when the "I" of my Yesteryears merged with the "I" of Now? A breathtaking experience, but only a piece of the layer of the onion I will continue pealing. I am definitely going out as a different person from the one I came in.
For all these, I feel I can't be grateful enough for the patient, persistent, and dedicated work Marinda, Allyn, and Fred did on us all through our stay in TMI.
Thank you, The Monroe Institute. "Love Is All There Is"
The vibration of the place, and the Robert A Monroe family and staff, and the various researchers have made it very conducive to reap the benefits of many years of research in a week’s time and yearn for more in the coming years.
I am also very grateful to every one of you participants and instructors for being open and generous to share your positive vibrations and energies. I have now added 18 more loving souls to my list of Loving entities.
Last but not least, on behalf all the participants and myself, our admiration and appreciation go to Vicky, Jenny, Kimberly, Melody, Christina, and Wanda [of the hospitality team] for the care and loving vibration they unreservedly invested in our well-being. Our Spirit would not have soared unimpeded without their positive vibrations that permeated in everything they prepared and touched.
Thank you, The Monroe Institute.
