SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones,

I’m here at Joshua Tree State Park. And I have to say that, aside from the sound of the cars on the road …

Actually, I’m standing in the sunlight here … standing on these beautiful quartz pebbles …

You see? That’s crystal quartz there. And if it were not for the sound of the cars on the road there … this is on the Utah Trail Road, then I would be able to hear the singing of the quartz.

And the quartz here, in the sands of the deserts … and in the deserts all over the world … resounds with the sounds of the Crystal Halls of Amenti in the center of Earth. And so, the feeling here is completely different from that of any other place on Earth.

The deserts have this quality … this beautiful quality … of resounding with the Crystal Halls of Amenti …. absolutely incredible, peaceful, regenerating … full of nature spirits of charming wit and delight … just one of the most wonderfully refreshing places on Earth is the desert, right now.

So this the Mohave Yucca …

And you can tell because it has little threads on the edges of its leaves …

Here is the Joshua Tree, which looks very similar …

But on its leaves it has no threads; they are very clean. See? …
