Cramping During Night, Morning After, Nose Bleed... Arduous Flights Home
- My cramps started the moment I pressed the elevator button in
the hotel lobby. They continued throughout the night. Some
even persisted till the morning after. They would be triggered
by the slightest of motion. Fortunately, I have experienced that
once before in Arizona. And again at the Biltmore, at that. So
here's my letter to our fellow-Stewards of the Earth that I sent
about the experience the "morning after."
We've done it! All of our healing ceremonies have now been
completed: six ceremonies in 10 days across about 4,000 miles.
Thank you one and all for all your love and support and
participation in them. A special thanks to those of our SOEs who
joined me personally during a part of this pilgrimage - Janet,
Cher, Mearah, Tammy - and, of course, to my Kumarian brother
Star who was with me every step of the way, and also channeled
White Eagle and Hawk Shadow yesterday during our final ceremony
atop out Apucheta on McDowell Mtn.
Here are two photos that frame this healing pilgrimage. One was
taken at the end, last night, and at the start of our journey,
on Lake Michigan:
I posted this morning this video clip - raw and unedited -
so you could all benefit from the White Eagle's energy even
if most of us cannot understand him. He is speaking in a
Native American tongue:
"MORNING AFTER" (June
I am due to fly back to Maui in a few hours, so I will try to
keep this brief. Elizabeth is already in Corpus Christie, Texas,
visiting her family there. She will return home on June 28.
The above pictures speak for themselves. It was "hot, hot, hot"
yesterday everywhere in the Phoenix area. But nowhere was it
hotter than in the desert and on mountains where we did our
ceremonies. Chances are, the actual temperatures there were
higher than the "official" 111F that the news media reported
Which is why I am so proud of two of our fellow-SOEs - Janet and
Tammy - who chose to drive down from Northern Arizona, where it
is much cooler (80s), to join me in yesterday's Camelback and
McDowell Mtn healing work. On a day that not even "mad dogs or
Englishmen," as the saying goes, would venture out, they did.
And I salute them for their courage and determination to serve
our cause as Stewards of the Blue Star Earth.
Both of them made it to my Camelback Mtn Apucheta and
participated in the full 1PM ceremony. At the end, however,
Tammy was starting to feel a little lightheaded. So when we
drove over to the McDowell Mtn range for our 4PM healing work,
she wisely chose to stay behind and try to cool off a bit. Her
sister Janet and I walked together till about the midway point
of a grueling hike. That's when she also became lightheaded and
stayed to rest in the shade of a Palo Verde trip.
As I pressed on up the mountain, both of them were with me
energetically and joined me in the healing ceremony with their
prayers. I told them both at the end, as we were cooling off
over frozen yoghurt in a local Scottsdale plaza, that I was so
proud of them, and deeply honored by their willingness to
undertake such a challenging journey. Take a look at my Crocs
(shoes) before and after I had cleaned them...
for myself, I have done many desert mountain hikes in the past
in temperatures like this or even higher. But I have never done
two mountains back-to-back on the same afternoon. And, of
course, I have not done any such hikes in almost four years
since we moved from Arizona. So I was pleasantly surprised that
I really did not feel any great discomfort except for thirst at
the end of our two hikes.
"Huh!" the Spirit must have
laughed at me. "We're not done with you yet."
The cramping started literally when I walked into the elevator
lobby of our hotel, around 7:30PM last night. Thank God for
that! It would have been quite debilitating had it started on
the mountain or while I was driving back.
The cramps were
mostly in my legs, although if I tried typing something
on my computer, I would get them in my hands, too.
Just to give you an
idea of how draining the 111F heat can be, I drank half
a gallon of water during the two hikes. I drank half a
gallon of Cranberry juice at the end, while sitting with
Janet and Tammy at that Yoghurt place in Scottsdale. And
when I got back to my room, I also finished off half
gallon of milk I had in the fridge.
Still, despite drinking gallons of liquids, the cramping
persisted throughout the evening. Even if I lay down on
the bed, the slightest move would activate them again
and jolt me out of bet like a lightening bolt. That is
why I was not able to write this report last night as I
normally would have done. In fact, I did not even trust
myself to go into a shower. So I just washed off over a
sink before going to bed.
It was all reminiscent of that incident here at the
Arizona Biltmore in the 1990s. I got severe cramping
like this after playing several hours of tennis in
scorching heat. I could not even drive myself home. My
daughters had to come and pick me up in their car. This
time, however, occasional cramping would wake me up and
jolt me out of bed during the night, too.
When I woke up this morning around 6:30, I felt fine.
Except that when I was brushing my teeth, I noticed a
had a nose bleed in my left nostril. And I "never" get
nose bleeds. This one was minor, though. It lasted only
a few minutes after I plugged it up with a Kleenex.
have had quite a night but I am fine now. Except, of
course, I am sure my leg muscles will be sore for a few
days because of overexertion. Just in time for my
"farmer's yoga," the chainsaw and weed-whacking work
that awaits me at the Rainbow Shower after prolonged
So that's my "morning after" report to you, my dear SOE
family. I will send you some pictures from yesterday in
separate emails. I am flying back home to Maui this
And now, here's
a reaction by Mearah to the above picture...
Wow Bob Altzar........Thank you for the opportunity to join in with
you and all 1111 plus. Star...Janet....Cher and the the rest of the
unseen however deeply felt community. Communion...nothing like it.
Yea....ONE !!! Laughter,
tears and all.
I have to
say that that picture with you and your bloody nose looks to me
like a very tiny Dove sitting on your upper lip....Sangre de
Christo....That just came to me.
find rest and continued regeneration at home in Maui,
Blessings your way, Mearah

When I got
back home the evening of June 18, I replied as follows:
Hi, Mearah. Thank you for all you said
and are doing yourself as an SOE. As for that Dove sitting on my
upper lip, that's an interesting vision. The Dove was certainly
prominent yesterday. A rock in its shape sits atop my McDowell Mtn
And now, here's my final email trip report...
Just got back home. Leaving Phoenix was
quite a hassle. They boarded us and then we had to disembark.
Something lame like Sky Harbor system breaking down and we did not
have enough fuel. For an hour's flight to LA? I asked them - "what
kind of an airplane are you flying?" An electric one? :-)
Anyway, our departure time was being changed every few minutes. It
ranged from 1:30PM (scheduled time) to 4:45PM. Around 2:30PM, I
called on my guides for help. Suddenly the departure time was
changed from 4:45 to 2:45. They said the City of Phoenix had laid on
a truck that would deliver the fuel for our plane only. We actually
left at 3PM.
I took this shot (right) of an AA airport self-promoting screen with
my cell phone camera just before asking my Spirit guides for help.
I made it eventually to the Maui flight in LA as the LAST passenger.
They had already closed the door. But there was still 15 mins left
before departure time. So I told them I didn't know what all the
fuss was about.
"We wanted to leave early," a flight
attendant said. "Will you teach your American Eagle friends how
that's done? They just delayed me for almost three hours," I
And now the best part: Guess which two bags came off the conveyor
belt first at the Kahului airport? It seems the "last in, first
out"-principle applies to airlines not just manufacturing
Anyway, I am dog-tired but happy to be home. Once again, thank you
one and all for all your love and support.
On my first morning back home, I got a number
of "welcome home" messages from my fellow-Stewards of the Earth. Here
are two of them - one from Ann in Sacramento, California, and one from
Lincoln in London was particularly poignant:
Bob so glad to hear you
are home safely! It was wonderful to share in this wonder-filled
adventure in sacred sacred space with all of you.
I have to smile and share two beautiful insights. One is the
picture of the picture of the plane you took looks like a dolphin. A
very good sign for a safe journey; ). And the second was Mearah
mentioning the dove on the tip of your nose Bob! That was my little
sign that we reconnected the lines that run up from the head of the
dove too! Ohh...I am so honored and blessed to be on this fabulous
journey with all of you!
Ann - Alliaunna Kumara
Glad that the eagle has landed :-) and safely back in Maui. Wow
what an adventure you all have had and what energy. I was with
you during one the session in a sensory deprivation floatation
tank in London, a rather novel place to be connecting. I had a
truly amazing 'nature' connection, having surrendered to the
salt waters and my ego state. I entered another spiritual
dimension and was gifted a beautiful vision, I felt for all of
us. As I was connecting to all SOE's at the time. The message
and very deeply felt was "You are the Stars, you are the
Mountains, you are the Waters and the Winds. I was really blown
away, when I heard that voice from the cosmos speaking with such
To which I replied:
Lincoln, that's a
fascinating story and and an amazing vision you had. It gave me
goosebumps just to read it. Thank you for sharing it with us.
Indeed, without the love and help from the Spirit realm - the
Cosmos, as you put it - we would be just little specks of dust in
the desert. With it, we become Stardust that glows and transforms
all around us.
inspired me to create this photo-collage. Ann's comment
about seeing a dolphin in the image of that AA Eagle plane
also contributed to it. So thank you both for the
And now, in closing, here are
the sacred gifts that I brought back with me from this amazing journey.
I would love to hear your interpretation of the various aspects of that
shapeshifting Kulla I was gifted on McDowell Mountain.

Earth Brothers and Sisters-Guardians of the Earthly
We are most
pleased that so many of you are choosing at this time to
honor Planet Earth--and all living things inhabiting the
planet. Your recent ceremonies provide continued hope to
the Spiritual Realm that more and more enlightened earth beings will
realize the continuing need to honor Gaia--to send her
positive healing energy-and to give protection from
those who seek to exploit the planet and its resources
through greed and avarice behavior. Please continue to
expand the work and effort of Stewards of Earth--as it
is through community efforts that
important changes will occur. Your honoring programs on
ancient Native lands is very important-as among all
earth beings, native people value and treat your planet
with the utmost respect.
