What is a Gathering?
A Gathering is a powerful, empowering, uplifting, spiritual,
quantum event that can only take place with seven individuals
who come together to form a soul group, each holding a different
energetic or "color" frequency. Each person represents
one of the seven colors of the rainbow;
red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple or violet with each
color representing unique physical, emotional and spiritual
The seven individuals forming the soul group are situated
in the sacred geometrical pattern (infinity sign) that is called
the "Well of Souls". This geometric pattern will help
and support each person in the group to have a special covenant
with God and the angels. The geometric pattern and the ceremony
that surrounds the Gathering have been provided to draw in the
highest level of angelic assistance. The Gathering process,
the colors and geometric pattern have been brought forth through
Joe Crane with assistance
from an angel called Michael. The Gathering adheres to no denomination
or specific religious believe system except for the simple belief
One purpose of the Gathering is to assist each individual
in reconnecting their spiritual DNA. When we were born, we came
into this world with 12 strands of spiritual
DNA. These strands of spiritual DNA are different and separate
from your physical DNA. They are invisible and they are your
life connection with God. The Gathering provides the opportunity
to realign your spiritual DNA with the essence of God and reconnect
your spiritual DNA with your physical DNA. The more that a person
works within their gifts (being the true balanced person that
you can be), the more spiritual DNA strands that can be connected.
Some people find that the Gathering boosts or activates their
Each of the seven individuals in the group will take their
turn in the center of the "Well of Souls" pattern
and will have their own unique experience. To some, this Gathering
process can take on the form of an assisted meditation and for
others it may become even more. The experience of the Gathering
is so unique to each individual being gathered that it best
only to say that you will experience something.
The 8th individual is someone who has already been gathered,
and is assisting the other seven as a helper. The helpers will
instruct and assist the other seven individuals on the Gathering
process. There will be 2 blessings that will be given by the
angels on the day of the Gathering. The process will continue
until everyone in the group has been in the center of the "Well
of Souls". This event is completed in a 2 or 3 day period.
This Gathering will usually start on a Friday evening and end
on Sunday morning.
In the first part of the Gathering, the seven individuals
will be situated in the sacred geometrical pattern known as
the "Gate of Grace". In 1988, the angel Michael told
Joe: "It is time for you to have set God's Gate throughout
the land. This will make way for the sevens. You were given
a way of setting stones that a "Gate of Grace" may
be opened for healing and understanding. God's Gate, which you
call the stone matrix, is to be set across the land. As you
set up more Gates, there will be a shift on a greater scale
with the whole field."
The "Gate of Grace" is a benevolent tool given
to us by the angelic realm. Holographically, it looks like two,
four- sided pyramids intersecting. One points up, the other
points down. As they spin in opposite directions, the pyramids
intersect with each other and begin to create a geodesic ball
within. As the facets smooth out, it forms a Sphere of Grace
in the center. The ball of grace then folds in and up in the
middle creating a tube torus; through which the breath of God
This tool was given for angelic communication and/or healing.
It creates a clean spiritual space, much like an operating room.
It is an excellent space for meditating or healing sessions.
Nothing negative can be in this space nor can it be used for
anything negative. If someone does it will shut down immediately
and then start up again. There is no prayer or anything special
to be done to have this gate start up. The gate is opened by
placing eight stones in the geometric pattern and the seven
being gathered and the 8th helper positioning themselves in
their specific location related to the stones.
My Experience at the Gathering
Some of you may know me (Ivan Stein) and, therefore, come
to know some of my more extraordinary spiritual experiences.
When I first heard of the Gathering, all I knew was that a man
from Texas called Joe Crane
had been communing with an energetic being he called Michael
since 1994, and the Gathering was something he had been instructed
to do, and offer out to others.
I had no expectations about the Gathering, but thought it
would be nice to participate in an event where everyone attending
was interested in spiritual and personal growth. That in itself
made the Gathering sound like it would be an enjoyable and profound
experience. When I went through the gathering
colors, I found that I harmonized with four of the colors,
but felt that the color RED fit better than the others.
The Gathering experience became one more extraordinary spiritual
experience to add to the others. It touched me so deeply that
I was inspired to register the domain name AngelGathering.com,
create this website, and promote more Gathering events. When
you go through the color selection, you may realize, as a RED,
why I have been compelled to do this.
My Gathering occurred on December 9, 2006 in Midway, Utah
and was hosted by a beautiful spirit calling herself Sonja Knight.
I was gathered as part of two groups of seven and I was prepared
to be among people that I had never met before. The participants
came from all areas of Utah. I would never have imagined that
I had met any of these other 13 people. As it turned out, I
knew the RED person from the other Gathering group. This was
a person that I had met once a few years ago during a spiritual
conversation and we had lost contact. The fact that I knew another
person at the Gathering was a surprise, and the fact that we
were both the RED members was also amazing.
The Gathering host and helpers made the Gathering event
feel like a dream. Basically, for a two day period, all you
have to do is get up, walk, talk, eat and sleep. They made it
so comfortable and pleasant that I didn't want to return to
the working world. I wanted to stay in that space of communing
with spiritual and like-minded individuals, giving each other
hugs and blessings and the greatest respect that I have ever
My Gathering experience was much more than taking my turn
in the center of the geometric pattern and what came through
was more than I could have ever imagined. I know that I am very
visual and through my meditations, I have learned how to be
open to visual information and understand the meaning of what
I am shown. As much as I aspire to be and live a spiritual life,
I am aware of some of my spiritual gifts. The Gathering brought
others to a greater understanding.
The entire Gathering process became a vision quest. I saw
guides and angels helping us and witnessed events of a spiritual,
physical and healing nature. The energy vibration and information
was beyond anything I could have anticipated. Because everyone's
experience is unique and personal, I won't go into details about
my experience, but I will say that for many this was a truly
spectacular spiritual event. I believe that if you choose to
attend a Gathering, you will receive something that will shift
The people involved in these gathering events are special
and giving. The gateways, once opened, remain open, and they
join to create an energetic web that helps to shift the collective
consciousness of our area, and humanity, to the light. Once
you have been gathered, you will be able to participate again
at a different level by either hosting your own gathering, or
assisting at another as one who is there in service to those
to be gathered next. This is about holding and building community
in the ways we have all been talking about. Join in! Upcoming
Gathering events are listed here
if you wish to participate. More will be posted as they come
