4. About Bodie McCoy
About Bodie McCoy
Writing about myself has always been challenging so when someone says “tell me about Bodie McCoy” I am often a bit thrown. But here goes. I was born in 1949 amidst post WWII optimism. My mother and father were the first in their families to have college educations. And, of course, they believed that for me to live my best life I also needed a college education. Their enthusiasm for school assured me it would help me find my special purpose. But my first of Kindergarten wasn’t what I’d hoped for, and I wasn’t what my teachers hoped for either. The next 13 years all felt like a downhill slope. I got to the place when 30 seconds into a text book or lecture would literally launch me into an altered state. My disappointment in school was eclipsed by my parent’s disappointment in me. My failure to get good grades often made our dinner table a very unpleasant place. As the saying goes; if I’d know then what I know now…. The truth I have come to accept is that every experience is actually pointing us toward out purpose.
Peter Pan, Faith & Revolution
On my 4th birthday, with a theater full of enthusiastic children, I wholeheartedly recited Peter Pan’s oath to never grow up. This seed was planted in countless “baby-boomers” and germinated within us until the late 60s. When it was our time to “grow up”, we just said “No”. Briefly we created our own “Never Land”. Our motto was “Make love not war”. Our symbol stood for peace and we even discovered magical pixie-dust drugs called Psychedelics.
United unconsciously by Peters oath we refused to kill and rejected societies’ logical, left-brain adult values. On the way to our revolution Peter’s oath strengthened us to follow our hearts. For me this strength came from years of disappointing the people I loved and needed most. I believe it was Peters oath that enabled me to accept the labels of uncooperative, underachieving and rebellious as the costs of following my own heart.
When I was 17 I met my kindergarten teacher again for the first time in 12 years. She hadn’t changed much and when I told her who I was she looked me straight in the eyes and said, “I thought you’d be dead or in prison by now”. As strange as that sounds her words were prophetic. Over the next few years my passions for surfing, drugs, smuggling, fast cars and extremes in general, would indeed bring me near to death and or prison on numerous occasions.
In 1970, when the 60s were over, most of my friends were going back to school or getting “real jobs”. For me it was when I began to pay for years of nonstop partying. I was 5’ 11”, 21 years old and only weighed 94 lbs. That was the year when my psychedelic induced spiritual quest because very real. After 2 years of struggling I started binging on sweets and doubled my weight and went from 110 lbs. to 220 lbs. 1972 was also the year I started therapy. Four years’, thousands of hours and many thousands of dollars later, I was stronger, healthier, wiser, deeply dedicated to being my best self and determined to find a better way.
A year and a half later in 1977 I met Barbara and by 1982 we were married and had four children. I was struggling with marriage and fatherhood and desperately needing to remember my seemingly forgotten purpose. It was then that I remembered my childhood fascination with “The Lord’s Prayer”. It is known as the only prayer Jesus ever taught. I now believe that taking Peter Pan’s oath when I was 4 enabled me to see Jesus’ oath as a magical formula. At age 33 my experiences with metaphysical studies, therapies, meditations, spiritual healers, teachers and spiritual practices enabled me to see what made that prayer magical. It contained an ancient spiritual technology for awakening the creator within us.
The next few years were spent contemplating this technology and wondering what I could do with it. I could feel it unlocking my own potential and was eager to share it. Then I envisioned an oracle-like-game. Applying synchronicity to this technology revealed valuable personal insights into deeper magical realities embedded within our ordinary ones. Over the next few years my determination to refine this “game” led me to visit Temple of the Sun and the Sun Cross Codex in Palenque Mexico. I realized that that codex was another expression of the same technology found in the Lord’s Prayer. It also provided the ultimate game-board for playing this “game”.
Palenque and the Sun Cross Codex
The Sun Cross Codex clearly revealed how ‘The Light’ creates us with a conscious, subconscious and supper conscious mind. It showed how the light manifests through our 8 chakras like the color spectrum of a rainbow and our chakras as 8 energy systems, of 4 crossing and unifying human dimensions, our 4 perceptions of those dimension and our 4 relationships with each of our 128 perceptions. Applying synchronicity to this intricate inner-game-board reveals the precise chakra, dimension, perception and relationship, which was currently shaping or misshaping our realities.
A young Mayan artist from whom we purchased a replica of this codex described the initiatory ceremony at its center. What he told us was identical to what we saw in the Lord’s Prayer. Applying that sacred ritual to this information which our new game-board provided, produced deeply healing, timely and creatively empowering experiential insights. These sacred inner rituals revealed pearls of true purpose. Harvesting these unclaimed pearls from our fragmented memories and stringing them together illuminates the unique gifts that we all have to offer. This is a key aspect of our work
In 1994 playing this “game” enabled me to recall a long forgotten memory when I was 2 ½ years-old. I remembered my mother being sad. And I believed it was my fault and felt desperate to know what I’d done so I could make it better. All these years later this game helped me to see how feelings of irrational guilt for something I had been completely unaware of permeated all my most important relationships. As an adult I realized that when my mother dropped out of college, she felt like she was abandoning her dreams when she got pregnant with me. Obviously this wasn’t my fault. But I took on the guilt & her disappointment.
Our deeply prejudice culture, that does not recognize motherhood as the most precious, honorable, and important job of all goes way beyond absurd. Even now our male dominated world fears this miraculous power of women.
Remembering how my mother had sent me to my room that eventful day, yelling “Just wait until you grow up then you’ll know how hard it is”, enabled me to appreciate why I’d embraced Peter Pan’s oath so enthusiastically. I could see how Peter’s oath prepared me for Jesus’ oath, enabling me to discover this ancient technology, which is the foundation of my life’s work. Playing this game helped me appreciate how my painful relationships with my mother and others had prepared and motivated me to realize my purpose. Enabling me to feel sincerely grateful for so many previously crippling memories was deeply empowering. My life literally changed overnight. I was touched deeply and personally by the healing power of this ancient technology.
Teaching, Travel and Change
For the next 10 years I continued sharing this truly magical game with thousands of people privately, in classes and seminars. This was a deeply rewarding life coaching experience for me. I traveled extensively. The internet and mobile devices began changing our world so dramatically that I thought I was done. I couldn’t see how to translate what I’d been doing in person for so many years into this new tech paradigm . Traveling so much was no longer an option and so I was enjoying an early retirement at the beach.
Dealing with Trauma
Then one of our children had a traumatic event happen that changed everything. Suddenly our bright, promising and talented child who we love and admire literally seemed to disappear right before our eyes. Barbara, myself and our whole family were all deeply shaken. He experienced a psychotic break which he will be adjusting to for the rest of his life. This deeply confusing, heart wrenching experience compelled us to seek answers to what no one seems to yet understand. It was time to dig deep within.
My ignorance made me feel vulnerable and ineffective. Discovering that our culture’s primary solution, to what we now know is a rapidly growing plague, are drugs with dangerous side effects was deeply disheartening. Statistics show that homelessness and/or being imprisoned are the other so-called solutions amplified my discomfort. Our son needed help that cost over $50,000 a month. Just to keep him off the street, out of prison and out of harms way would require some real miracles. To meet his needs and ours I went deep within myself. What manifested was a series of 128 meditative exercises. Within these the loving essence of 30 years of my work came together. With these simple exercises we were able to find peace and balance within our heart wrenching storm. Sharing them with others to help balance and heal the traumas in their lives has been heartwarmingly rewarding.
Everything in the physical world is in a constant decline except energy or spirit, which cannot be destroyed. This is the thermodynamic law of entropy which all spiritual masters agree upon. Everything you have can and will be taken from you except for one thing; your spiritual freedom to decide how you choose to respond to every situation. Children play freely, express openly, learn from their mistakes and grow quickly. Identifying with our physical bodies, our survival instincts and how other people see us ultimately dims our light.
