Glimpse Into Another Reality

Welcome!

Thank you for visiting my website.

I created it to share the pictures and stories the angels and elementals on my land have given to me.

Council of Gnomes 188x300 Welcome!My name, Barbara, means ‘child of nature’. I can see Spirit has been guiding me to relate with nature in many ways.  When I was 60, my husband and I moved to the heart of the redwood forest on the central coast of California. There is a special piece of land on our property called The Amphitheater, where the veil between worlds is very thin. I have walked to the Amphitheater more than 6000 times and have connected with some of the nature spirits who live on my land. The Council of Gnomes writings come from these connections. You can read about these in the Blog.

HBW dvd cover1 109x150 Welcome!There are two special Beings that guide my painting and my writing. One is a Angel the other is a Gnome. One night my angel gave me the words to the book I have published, The Burned Woman. 15 years later I created a DVD, Healing Burned Woman, which expands upon Burned Woman’s story to tell the story of how nature and her non-physical beings in co-creation with humans can heal together from the burning times.

As a child I always wanted to paint like my aunt Carolyn and cousin Pat. Since I couldn’t draw, I thought I could not paint. When I was 30 I read, “If you have a strong desire to do something, God has also given you the ability.” I decided to find a teacher to teach me how to paint. That was the beginning of a 55 year, non-stop exploration of color and shape that creates form.

This was all a mystery to me and stimulated my curiosity and interest. I met people who could see the non-physical world of angel and gnome and learned that my life was filled with these beings.  I continued to paint energetic paintings of color and shape with no goal to paint an angel or elemental, and they kept showing up. I call this ‘A Glimpse into Another Reality’. I am happy to share these paintings with you.

    After years of stimulating Barbara
    to wake up to the reality of the
    elemental beings that are the life
    force within the natural world of
    earth, air, fire, and water, Mano
    first introduced himself to her
    when she moved to the heart of
    a redwood forest. As she was
    walking through the forest he
    appeared within her imagination
    walking beside her. He spoke to
    her by putting his thoughts into
    her mind.

    Over the years this developed into
    Barbara’s recording of their con-
    versations into the computer as
    they occurred. Now, many years
    and hundreds of pages later, he
    is able to communicate with the
    larger world through “HIS” blog.

    Mano asked Barbara to invite Mary
    Jane to collaborate on his blog.
    Mary Jane has been exploring her
    own process of learning to trust
    and relate, incorporating Mano’s
    teaching in the process.

    For the past 26 years
    Mano has been Barbara’s
    constant companion and
    daily teacher. He heralds
    the call for humans to
    wake up, remember, and
    return to interacting with
    the non-physical world of
    angel and elemental,
    expressing gratitude,
    love, and respect.
