A few days ago, this reporter received an invitation from a mutual friend to author Michelle L. Hankes’s evening appearance in Denver to speak, answer questions, and sign copies of her book Divine by Nature: Spiritual Messages from the Planet's Natural Elements (Volume 1) available there and for order online, a collection of inspirations, interactions and spiritual adventures with the consciousness of nature itself.
This event was located beyond his customary Central Denver-ic geographical grid, on West 46th Avenue, but spiritual growth by definition includes stretching beyond comfort, hence your reporter considered it worth the effort. After a couple of unfamiliar bus routes, during which he sat attentively waiting for the proper stops, and a brief walk down one dark residential block, he turned the corner and there it was, For Heaven's Sake New Age Metaphysical Bookstore, where he introduced himself as an agent of the Examiner and was greeted warmly by the personable Hankes, the sweetly bespectacled female clerk, and certain of the guests. After about ten minutes of standing around while more audience arrived and a little rearrangement of furniture, he sat down on a folding chair facing the author. Contrary to his expectations, following a brief period of book-and-author-related questioning from the audience seated on folding chairs facing Hankes and two young ladies on a small couch to her right, the event in question was not merely a book signing or author appearance, but an interactive session with Hankes’s purportedly Pleiadean channeled advisors.
The author closed her eyes, took a deep breath, and the next voice to issue from her mouth had a different cast, older and wiser than her own, and punctuated its statements with a rhythmic “mmm” noise, as is often the case when channeled beings are presumed to communicate. This reporter has read and held to the output of such entities previously, notably Daryl Anka’s Bashar, who states unequivocally that reality IS a hologram (as opposed to Jane Roberts’ Seth, who suggested to less evolved humanity that it be perceived as such for better understanding of its workings), but was initially slightly skeptical, simply because of the word “Pleiadians” and all the baggage of skepticism associated there, which has become so ingrained as to present doubt as a knee-jerk reaction (think about that for a second, dear readers). Fortunately, in response to that conditioned reaction, your reporter remembered Dr. Masaru Emoto’s experiments proving the transformative effect of human consciousness when applied to water in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the Peyote spirits considered allies by Yaqui shamans, the creative entitites seen by Ayahuasca travelers, and the living presence of nature immediately apparent on taking a deep breath of clear cold air, and settled rapidly into his proper role as a deferential student of the unknown rather than its denier out of ignorant habit.
As such, he was able to determine the palpable sincerity of Hankes’s effort as a vessel for some greater knowledge, whatever its origin. He found most of its responses were already harmonized with his own meta-physical, call it ultra-terrestrial, assemblage point, and began thinking of the most important question he could ask. “What am I most curious about?” he wondered. Often given to channeling himself, albeit in a more absurdist vein than a spiritual one, but barely preconceived at all, and already well steeped in all manner of counterclockwise theories, from spontaneous prose to differing interpretsations of the law of attraction, he had no doubt of the possibility of access to realms beyond the conscious or obvious ones, as a result was uncommonly sure of himself regarding abstraction, and saw this as an opportunity at interpersonal contact with a greater beyond-ness. Despite his total lack of prior interaction with channeled entities, having understood that difficulties seen at arms length are simplified, he felt sure the same principle applied inter-personally (inter-dimensionally?), and wanted to ask the best question.
Months of unsuccessful job searching had led your reporter to the realization he had never been properly grateful or trusting of his creative-ness, despite knowing it to be his truest self. After several minutes of thinking about how to phrase the inquiry, your reporter tried asking the adept if they/she/the Pleideans approved or not of his recent intuition that life itself consisted of the continual encountering of currents, thus self-publishing (i.e. going with natural impulse as creative self) was the most profitable way to go financially and for soul-growing. He was told in response to look at what resonates to find the truth (which he took as a yes, since the idea to self-publish was a vital impulse lately) and that they honored his divinity in so doing, or that his doing so consisted of honoring divinity . . . which was vague, but by no means negative. Unknown to this agent of the Examiner when he asked that question, the writer who invited me to the channeling session (a former Examiner) happened to be optimistically self-published herself after undergoing a crisis about going mainstream or not, and offered to help with any formatting difficulties he might encounter in the conversion process. The following morning, he got hired as a reviewer of self-published books, and the day after that a friend in New York offered to share a few ISBN numbers. Accordingly, in the next weeks, your humble reporter will be publishing three or four books, paperback and possibly digital too (having just realized how everyone has a cell phone now and interested readers can download books to their cell phones, an option perhaps obvious to the majority but still not being a cell phone user, surprised your reporter pleasantly to realize).
Michelle L. Hankes writes about nature, Angels, metaphysics, and spirituality. She uses a combination of clairvoyance, claircognizance, clairaudience, and clairsentience to meet and interact with many different types of physical and non-physical entities, including Angels, Archangels, Nature beings, animals, spirit guides, and many more types of spiritual beings. She believes that everyone possesses these abilities and with a little intention, they are something anyone can use on a daily basis in all areas of their life.
