Incoming Outgoing Vortexes in the Moss Field/Arena

A group of WARREN LIGHT CENTER members gathered together at the moss field. Including Greg ??? who talked about a vortex of energy that some of the earlier members were aware of. I’m not really sure how they participated in using it’s energy. So I joined the gathering just to be part of whatever would happen.

Kathy Doty lead us into the field. Greg lead us toward the area that he remember as the vortex center, somewhere to the left of where we had entered the field. We circled around the area he had pointed out to us. Some members began to feel some sort of activity. Strangely, I noticed a marked difference in the green grass. It was shaped like a turtle.

At first, I didn’t think that I felt anything. I was so disappointed. Kathy and the others began exploring other areas of the arena. I stayed alone by myself. The area at the vortex felt comfortable to me. I liked being there by myself, without the concern of what the others were doing.

And then a conversation began.

I’m not really sure how to explain this conversation. An old spirit told me his name was Old Joe and that he was, what was called, a Gatekeeper for the vortex. He had been guarding the energy vortex for a long, long time. And he was so tired.

He was looking for someone who would make a SOUL commitment to take over the Gatekeeper’s job. Someone who would understood the job and its total commitment. Someone willing to sacrifice their “LIFE” to stand guard to protect and secure the Pure energy of the vortex. He went on to explain he had given enough of his “Life” Time and wanted now to go further on his Spiritual Path.

As I look back at this: Can you imagine what I think about this encounter with Old Joe????? I have to wonder, “Is this another Life Line I might be committed to?” not a Past or Future, but a parallel dimension?

But this story doesn’t end here.

As the others were gathering at another area in the arena; I continued by myself. Heading on to the right side of the arena, I realized that I was not quite back to full awareness yet. I felt disconnected with “Me”, the one called Shirley. I was not scared at all. I was an observer. I found myself standing beside another energy vortex. I was not sure at the time, but later I was to understand that this was an Outgoing energy vortex. Whereas the vortex Old Joe was guarding was a Incoming energy vortex.

I saw myself as a Teacher, quite young and slender, wearing a blue gingham shirt dress. I was surrounded by children. This did not surprise me, for I have been told I have been a Teacher in many lifetimes. These children were Star Children. The children were brought to the moss field to be taught how to use both the incoming and outgoing energy of both vortexes located here together.

What happened next, You are going to LOVE.

Bill Dye was also involved in teaching the children. Are you aware of how many of WARREN LIGHT CENTER’S members are Teachers???  Doug Davis, Karin Peterson, Melodie Peterson, Sierra, and the list can go on.  I won’t forget Barb Watson who is tutoring a the public library in Michigan.

Kathy told me later that she had asked Chantal to go to the moss field alone to see if she could pick up on anything I had shared from my experience. She climes she did not pick up anything but she did take some pictures. I sure would Love to see those pictures.

Hopefully others will share if they have had any such experiences such as I had.

P.S.  As I began writing up this posting for the website, realization of a commitment to Old Joe emerges. Any Spiritual work done in Heaven in the Woods carries across Ley lines that connects with WARREN LIGHT CENTER grounds.
So a Voice of Gratitude is sent to each and every person who is part of WLC II and its continued work established by the earlier members of WARREN LIGHT CENTER.

My Encounter with a U.F.O.

A co-worker of mine, Marie Baker, called me out of the blue on my birthday. She remembered my interest in Spiritual Metaphysics and U.F.O.s. She began telling me about her sightings of U.F.O.s from her home in Utica, Pennsylvania, not far from the grounds of Warren Light Center. I told her that I thought she should visit Ina Gallagher and share these sightings with her.

Marie had been involved with the Warren Light Center several years before, when her son Michael was a Boy Scout who camped on the grounds. So, she and I started attending class meetings with Ina.

One evening after such a meeting, we headed home turning right onto the French Creek Rd, toward Utica.

Not far from the Warren Light Center, on the left side of the road, is a campground called Coopers, with a pond in the front. The campground sits at the base of a valley canyon, between two small mountains.

I spotted two bright lights high above, further back the canyon.

Jokingly I said to Marie, “Look Marie, there’s two of your buddies over there.”

As soon as she spotted the lights she replied. “Move over, pull over right here”

Automatically, I pulled my car over to the right side of the road. No sooner than I had turned off the engine, I looked out my windshield and saw that right above us was a ship. I believe now, it was a scout ship.

The Mother ship was the brighter of the two lights and stayed in the canyon. I looked into the side of the scout ship. It was like looking into the door of a microwave oven when the light is on. I saw nothing in the ship, at least no moving Beings.

And then the ship was gone. Believe me.

It didn’t disappear behind a tree, or enter the water of French Creek. It was not headlights from another car. It simply disappeared. I “knew” that I had just seen a U.F.O.

Marie said, “Did you see that?”

Not much was said as we traveled on our way to leave her off at her home in Utica.

When I arrived home my (ex-) husband was getting ready to go to work. I tried to tell him what happened and asked him if U.F.O.s could camouflage themselves as military helicopters. His reply, “How the Hell would I know?” (Now whenever a situation comes up in mine or my sister Mary’s life that we don’t have an answer for, we answer, “How the Hell would I know ?”)

Marie told me later that she went back to the location on French Creek Road and asked a neighbor if he had seen anything that night. His answer, “No, but that’s nothing. We see stranger things like that all the time here.”

Marie later asked Bill Dye about what we had seen. He confirmed with her, that we had indeed saw the ship, and he was not surprised.

Sometime later, I asked a group of Warren Light Center members who were attending a meeting about our encounter. Sierra answered, “Once you see one, you know what you saw. You don’t need to see another one.”

But what bothered me for years after the sighting was: How was I able to look into the side of the ship, if the ships were made of metal?

Since that time I have been given confirmation from other sources.

  1. The book The Day after Roswell.
    Written by a member of a group of military officers who were to investigate the crash and reverse engineer any technology they found on the ship. The author was surprised that when he entered the ship he could see outside a full 360 degrees.
  2. Than again while attending a MUFON meeting in Sedona, Arizona.
    People there shared a story of a couple who were witnesses to the ship flying over before it crashed. The gentleman stated in an interview with the local newspaper, it was lit up from the inside of the ship.
  3. Ron Headley has confirmed I was right.
    The material the ships are made of could let me look into the side of the ship.

Hidden Beauty Dec. 2016

My first visit to WARREN LIGHT CENTER

Ted Jenkins gave my name to Bill Dye to be put on the mailing list for Warren Light Center. First invite was a clean up weekend on the grounds.

Imagine driving the whole way to the back of camp not knowing the layout of the land.

Meeting nobody.

      Hearing nobody.

        Seeing nobody.


Finally arriving at Bill’s cabin.

And what did I do?
While turning around in the driveway/parking area: I stuck my car on a tree trunk.
I knew I needed HELP.

Cautiously I entered Bill’s cabin. The door was wide open. I only ventured in a short way. What was I going to do? Alone. Frightened. I waited.

Bill Dye arrived. I introduced myself as a friend of Ted Jenkins. And I was there to help with the clean up. I Proceeded to show him my car. Yes! Bill helped me jack my car up and off the tree stump. But soon after that I notice that future mailings included the following statement. Warren Light Center would not be responsible for such incidents.

Bill than showed me the trail that runs at the back of camp along a ridge overlooking a small stream. This trail runs from the back of camp to the front of camp. He explained that I could help by throwing any stones or tree limbs off the trail. He felt that as I went along I was sure to run into others doing the same work. I never meet any others as I walked. Not really finding many stones or fallen sticks, I just gave up. Finding a group of Hemlock trees, I sat down on the ridge of the trail overlooking the stream. I gained my composure, I took a deep breath. I silently called out seeking Spirit to join me. To comfort me, to let me know I was doing the right thing by being here.

There in my minds eye:

A Native American elder stood before me. Very rigid. Showed me no recognition at all. “Whoa,” I thought.

Then one who I recognized as a Chief. One who was in his 40’s, still strong and virile. More Kindness, understanding and showed me he recognized me. More acceptance than the Elder before. “Whoa !” again.

The third Native American appeared before me, a Warrior. He wore a Mohawk. Immediately I recognized him, likewise he “knew” me. He handed me three silver coins. These coins were minted by the U.S. government. To be given to the chiefs and others of the Indian tribes as a offering from the Big White Chief, President of the United States. I knew what these coins represented and meant to those of the tribes who received them. Another, “Whoa.”

Now here is the best part

As I came back out of the meditation, a Hawk flew not more than 20 ft. in front of where I was sitting. As he passed by me, he dropped his prey he was carrying into the stream below me. I heard it hit the water.

Verifying how honored I was. To be given both the three coins and the prey of the Hawk. I knew I was Welcome to the Warren Light Center, as part of the Native American heritage on the grounds and as well as a part of the Warren Light Center as we know it.

Little did I know what my part I was to play.


Always in Gratitude,

About my Channeling

by Melodie Peterson

How do you do it?

I always go by guidance in every channeling session. I wait for a time when I feel exceptionally well, that I’m in high spirit, that I’m well rested, and in a positive peaceful space.

I state my intention and ask, “Who wants to work with me?”

Sometimes it’s a tree wand, sometimes my selerite wand, other stones and at times my familiar Kanika (cat.)

I light a candle, burn sage (at times, ) and sing The Lord’s Prayer. I state the name of the person or animal and ask permission to speak to their Higher Self. I visualize that I am connecting my roots to Mother Earth and my crown chakra to the heavens.

I stop the traffic in my brain. I make total peace in my head – no sound – no thought. Analogy: I’m a plane sitting and waiting for that moment to be given the go-ahead. Sometimes I take off fast, and write quickly.

Other times Guidance comes slow. I mark out the things that I recognize to be negative. I know that I am off track at that point and am getting interference. If that happens I call on an angel or master to help me reconnect or Kanika shows up.

I pay attention to my body language, feelings, visions, song, dreams as follow-ups or extra thoughts that I get later.

I pay attention to what the words mean at the moment that I receive them.

Sometimes I go to the dictionary afterwards to pick the best possible word that capture sa given time and that thought. Afterwards, I also remember something or Guidance changes a few words as I proofread and copy.

I just know when to close out each session because of my body language.

Suddenly I come back to an alert state. This is my cue as confirmation. Often before this moment in channeling my cat Kanika jumps off my lap.

Why do I channel?

It’s something I did before I knew that was what I was doing. I’ts something that I always wanted to do. I have the awareness that it is tangible; that it’s within the reach of perceptibility.

What do you get from it?

I the synchronicities that are confirmation. There is always something that I get in messages that intrigues me; that raises interest at times prompts research because it raises my curiosity. This teaches me!

I receive words to use and when I learn their meaning realize that they are perfect for a specific place in my reading. This brings me understanding, growth, and satisfaction.

I acknowledge that channeling is a sacred gift that is meant to share. I am eager to share my message with my client. I often receive confirmation by others’ reaction. They want to know how I know certain things. I also receive confirmation that it’s truth by my body’s reaction in feeling energy or crying.

Channeling is a way that I can serve mankind.

By answering questions I am guiding them, spreading Light and healing to them. I am also helping them perceive certain things to help them make decisions.

How has it changed your life?

It’s encouraging me to loosen up, relax more, meditate more. When I channel I share my experiences (messages) that are then shared and this sparks conversation and both parties grow.

I reach new heights (figuratively.) My energy level is getting stronger. Channeling is contributing to my confidence. The most rewarding thing is that channeling is helping me become a happier person since I partook in it. I’m more fun to be around because I’m totally myself. I am now embracing my I AM and acknowledging myself more.

The following is an example of the confirmation that I receive: If Bettie Mavity had to pass through some physically challenging time, a group of us would do long distance healing for her.

When I told her some of the things that I said and did during the healing (shared that with her,) she gave me feedback. She experienced the same things. Bettie is very intuitive and she has incredible visions. This is long distance healing, but in Spirit — close. The outcome of the healing was that she relaxed so the pain could subside and she went to sleep for the night.



2016 Autumn Equinox Photos

Please click on any picture to begin the slideshow.


Shirley Baum commissioned a recreation of the original APORCEE structure located at Heaven in the Woods and completed in 2016. (Editor)

The original APORCEE structure was built on the grounds of the Warren Light Center located near Polk-Franklin. It is designed from a spiritually inspired vision of Don Anderson, resident and member of the early WLC group. If you look further on this website under the WLC Residents you will find the account written by Ron Headley describing Don Anderson and his manifestation of APORCEE.

My interest in APORCEE began after I was shown the photo prints of spirit paintings taken by Dolores Holmes who, with her husband Ron, were close friends of Don Anderson and visited WLC grounds often.

In the early 1980s, Al Law who was also a member of WLC painted a group of Spirit paintings. At the time he painted these paintings he did not know who the people in the paintings were . He would place the paint on his pallet, allow spirit to paint the paintings, and when the paint was gone from the pallet board the paintings were finished.

As soon as I saw the prints of those paintings I “knew” they were of the commanders of the first spaceship which landed on earth. They were a special group connected with the Galactic Federation under Ashtar, Hatton, and St. Germain. I have since been told that I was on the fifth ship that landed.
You can find these paintings under the menu WLC Groups/APORCEE on this website.

APORCEE is made up of the names of the following commanders:

A = Alene
P = Persuk
O = Orlen
R = Roylan
C = Corvau
E = Enai
E = Ephra
These commanders traveled from a starbase in the Pleiades.
There is no WLC activity on the original grounds at this time. But several members of the group wished to continue gathering, so WARREN LIGHT CENTER II was created.

During a meditation (when we still met on the WLC grounds at the original APORCEE site), I received a message that I was to build an APORCEE structure at my own HEAVEN IN THE WOODS and that the structure would complete the circuit of energy which I had been working on while creating HEAVEN IN THE WOODS.





After three years of manifestation, APORCEE has been fulfilled. This structure has been modified somewhat from the original Don built.

But my intention is “True Blue” as they say and I believe Spirit will make what happens “happen” for each person who wishes to experience APORCEE energy.


  A follow up: After our last gathering, MaryAnn McClellan received a message regarding the letters in APORCEE and their meaning:

A = A
P = Portal
O = Oscillator
R = Resonance
C = Chamber
E = Energy Activator
E = Extender
Expanded Explanation
  • Portal (a doorway, gate or entrance)
  • Oscillator (a person that creates a sound that oscillate on a apparatus such as an electron tube, or establishing and maintaining oscillation of a frequency determined by it’s physical constants –
    always the same. For example: musical notes are always the same value.
  • Resonance (prolongation of the sound or musical note by reflection or by sympathetic vibration of other airways)
  • Chamber (any enclosed space or compartment designed for  a specific purpose)
  • Energy Activator (action at work or expression, inherent power, the strength of power efficiently exerted in balance)
  • Extender (to lengthen, to reach farther)

Shirley Baum


Marjorie Gera shares the meaning of the original APORCEE:

Any Person Opon Realizing Consciousness Enters Enlightenment”. Yes it is opon not upon.

Before the actual structure Don [Anderson] created a physical symbol [of] each that hung in our homes and that he made and freely gave to all who asked.

Warren Light Center II

While the original Warren Light Center is currently a place that used to be, there is a new extension.  Shirley Baum who lives a short distance from the original WLC has been continuing some of the traditions by having gatherings at her property.  This section of the WLC site is about those activities.  Several of the Warren Light Center II leaders, instructors and attendees are from the original WLC group.  There is space for those that are involved in continuing the WLC tradition at the new location WLC-II

Some of the people in this section also have sections on the WLC site

Firewalk Essay from Melodie

I just received Mato’s message – his firewalk essay. I am deeply touched by his words. My eyes stare into the trees along the west side of my driveway. My eyes have often been drawn there at profound moments. I am connecting to who I AM; One at all levels. My spirit is constantly uplifted. All profound moments are teaching me to acknowledge myself. I sense the things that are in my reality; that relate to who I am and all the realms around me. So I thank you for my experience by your presence in any of the ways that you (your I AM) chose to enrich my experience.  Thank you for allowing me to share who I AM, to share my spirit of dance, and your recognition of me as LOVE. We (LOVE) one step at a time trusted, acknowledged, and shared.  We LOVE high vibration, high thought, high inspiration walked a sacred walk all weekend.  We were called on to trust in one another’s I AM in walking blindfolded and falling to be caught.

During the process of building the fire, we built camaraderie with every log. At our cellular level, we remembered our past togetherness. We had ample opportunity to honor that which was sacred to us. We seeked in our Hearts the things to honor that we embraced from within our souls by reaching our past lives at togetherness and that camaraderie.  Writing this truth brings back the energy and HEART connection that I experienced during these moments. We enjoyed luscious food during the course of the day which was greatly appreciated.  Another integral part of the mortar that cemented our togetherness while we also celebrated our individuality. We expected to let go and celebrate ourselves in the most freeing way. That is always a blast! We babbled nonsense at each other! Maybe the aliens understood what we said. I think the dance with everyone in the group was a good thing to do.

The decorations were an important contribution to the atmosphere. The lighting was restful and gorgeous, especially the blue lights around  the firewalk area. They were so appropriate as a welcome to our unseen visitors for them to identify the landing area.

I loved the intimate relationship with those that experienced the light being – starseed interchange. The LOVE exchange of eye contact, words, body language, and touch was very profound and healing for me (I’m crying.)

I felt calm but concern intermittently touched my mind of fear. Anxiety slowly and slightly increased as we walked more and more laps round the coals. My arm facing the fire was too hot. Due to this awareness I periodically covered it with my other hand. I was thinking that Sierra must be wondering why none of us were walking, which was not the case.  I heard my mind say, “go” at least four times but my feet did not move toward the fire. I did not think it was an appropriate time. That was a little confusing to me although now I’m confident that I made the right call. When I finally walked, I lit my candle and as I circled the fire. left groin pain began and intensified with every lap. Two massage therapists both made the suggestion to me that this issue was related to past-life rape. I thought that this issue had healed from being addressed but I had to sit for 10 minutes for the pain to subside. Soon I went again but it still felt pretty hot (hotter than it had been on my previous firewalks that were with WLC.) The next three times I was walking across better but had an inkling that the pain in my groin was returning again. Every time I stepped out of the coals to Sierra and Mato, they asked how I was. I (cry again) felt like their welcome touched my HEART deeply. They were acknowledging me and that felt good. It felt like I think it would feel when you get HOME. That was so wonderful. Then Jeff put his arm around me and spoke to me about the process that I must do to send the pain to the fire. Then Candy began coaching me and offered for us to walk across together. I felt like that was a breaking point. Candy saw I let go drop to the fire. I quickly did four more crossings with the intention to let go. Every lap the pain was subsiding. There times that I crossed were slower, deliberate steps and felt very good. I just kept going until my pain was totally gone. Shirley and I walked my last walk across the coals with me, a grand finale. After the firewalk my feet were fine. Barb offered to check them. In the arch of my left foot was about five red spots and a small blister toward the pad. It was ouchy when Barb applied the ointment (gently) but on Sunday there was no sensitivity to touch left. Nothing on my right foot.

At 10:00 AM Deb came to Shirley’s. We know her from WLC. Deb used to swim with the dolphins. I asked her to contact them for me because I always wished that I could swim with them. She offered to send me CD’s of them. Then we went back to the labyrinth.



The Pyramid and Labyrinth

Personal letter dated July 10, 2012

Dear Jeff,

I spoke with the group at Shirley’s about the message I received when you were sitting in the pyramid.

I felt that I was meant to walk around the pyramid clockwise and wipe my hands on the outside planes as though glass was enclosing it. I was meant to seal the goodness of what you were doing. Then about 30 seconds after I received the message, you stood up and walked out.  Afterwards you asked me if I knew what you were doing when you were in there.

I did not sense anything about that. I was intensely looking into the woods to acknowledge the fairies at times.  I thought about how the sealing procedure had been accomplished because it was my intention whether or not I did it physically.  Yesterday, I was dictating the e-mail response for you to Shirley and received the following message: When I was sealing the pyramid, I was separating the realms in which you were working from the Earth plane and our present reality. Since it was close to the end of what you were doing in the pyramid that I received the first message, I’m thinking that it was a kind of ceremony? Or record keeping? Procurement.

Thank you for your e-mail acknowledging that you had received my letter about channeling.





Sierra – a kind, gentle soul who began showing up at WLC in the 70s.

Sierra has been at a lot of gatherings and activities and often would spend days at a time on the grounds – in fact she still can be found there from time to time.

Sierra and WLC Center just sort of became attached to each other.  An attachment that is ongoing.

Sierra is an instructor but she also is a resident in that she has been one of the people to live part-time on the grounds sometimes for weeks at a time in one of the cabins.

Sierra became a Firewalking instructor in the late 70s and has led a number of Firewalks at Warren Light Center as well as many other places over the last several decades.

This is Sierra’s “corner” of the Warren Light Center – a place for her to share some of her amazing experiences and insights.
