I had found an amazing healing center near Main St. that did Ionic foot baths Accupuncture, Apothecary and a Juice bar that served fresh wheatgrass. There I met two lovely women who seemed to know just about everything about herbal medicine.
I made it there twice in my 24 hr stay in Phoenix.
On the 9th I went back on the train back to the Airport. There I caught a shuttle to Sedona. On the way I could feel the excitement, but had a general calm curious mood going.
Upon arrival I was worried I would have to hike up a huge mountain to my next couchsurfer's place. My current GPS service on my phone seemed to not do turn by turn navigation so I had planned on going to the nearest Indie coffee shop to re-organize myself before going back out on the hunt. As soon as I was dropped off at the Super 8 in West Sedona, I decided to stick to the Indie Coffee Shop plan rather than Starbucks so I could get into the real local culture and goooood espresso.
So after walking "one" block I found a shopping plaza and was instantly magnetized to a shop named Java Love.
Upon entering the doorway to the inside, carrying a green army pack on my back and a black army pack on my front I made serious eye contact with a lively silver haired man. He says "Uh Oh ...What happened, how far did you walk?" I just smiled like a Lynx.
He immediately introduces himself as Lone Bear and says "I am Cherokee", meanwhile taking cell phone pics with himself and two other women. He asks me what he can do for me and I said I need to get to "this" address. He asks the women to take me there and they hesitantly nodded "yes" because "he" was the divine director of their world for the evening. AND he is "Lone Bear". Then he keenly notices that I am still healing from a virus, and asks, "What is wrong with your head." I said that it was really "fuzzy". He asks if he can put his hands on my head, and I agreed. His hands got hot immediately and he gently tried to burn out the cold. We stood almost in the center of the shop... during this treatment. He asks me to close my eyes and go into my "merkabah" ... and so ... I went.
Later ... I call Jon and he swoops me up in his Subaru since he happened to be next door at the bank. I land in his magical "that 70's show" house in West Sedona. Within the hour of arrival I discover that his house has an adjacent bike shop and they happened to have an extra "red" mountain bike that someone had left behind that I could have for free!
Dennis is their resident bike mechanic with 20 years of exp. and Matt lives in the adjacent studio ... also a bike buddha.
After a few nights of sleeping on the couch and taking vitamin C ... I am wondering where I am going to crash next since Jon couldn't most likely have me stay too much longer.
On the 11th I make calls about rooms. Soon I meet Rita who was supposed to rent a room starting on Nov. 1st. She loved me so much, arranged the move to "now".
Rita "IS" a Red Dragonfly .... she was wearing red when I met her... she drives a mustang, and is a quick thinker. She does Clothing Alterations by day out of the house.
SO now I live with Walter, Rita, her dog Honey Bear, Tiffany the snake, Leo and Angel,,, her cats.
Ahhhhh. Today we made some fairy dust!
