What is Love?

What is Light?

How is Love/ Light experienced?

The answers can be found within the heart yet one must go through the emotional body to get there.
ALL the emotions!
Especially the feelings we would rather NOT feel. 
 Pharmaceutical companies are raking in trillions on this program.
Feel WHAT you feel WITH Love
If you can not access love, then access the energy of forgiveness....encompass the uncomfortable feeling with this energy,
then find the energy of Love....allow this to move in through and around you,
This is a very simplified example of moving/transmuting emotion. By doing this we continue to unravel the stored memory, with its emotional content, word patterns, and live ever more free.
Begin by LOVINGLY and WILLINGLY endure ALL THINGS in our environment...after all we created it.....by doing this we move into greater non-resistance....and the movement inward toward the ONE LOVE, where we live in harmony....Bliss
There is no shortcut to the Source of our Being as far as I know...

As we move upscale from unconsciousness to enthusiasm and everything in between the intensity/awareness increases and so does the access to the ever popular sisters,
Love and Light~

AWARENESS with LOVE = Change/Transmutation
Holistic Solutions
to the government (world order)'secret operation' to spray chemicals by air....resulting in what is known as chemtrails.

I have been aware of this covert operation for several years, yet in the recent weeks I have seen an increase in the spraying. I wake early when the sky is dark, and I look for the moon and few stars and planets I can identify. In the early moning hours the spraying begins, then by sunrise the sky is striped. I am very concerned for human and all life forms.
Rosalind Peterson from California has comprehensive studies and on youtube very informative video.
We know some of the chemicals that are being sprayed on us....

So we know we are being ststematically poisoned...and the people who are organizing and implementing this covert action may not hide behind the insult of an explaination that this is weather control experiments....quite simply, if this were true they would not be directing it at areas of human populous only.

OK so we know that a 'world order' is directing the poisoning of humankind.
What can we do?

Physically we keep our bodies strong...immune strong...by eating organic...raw...wholesome REAL food..(if you can find it), and supplement with natural minerals... www.enzymesinternational.com
is a grassroots company with quality!

Emotionally we can be aware of what is actually happening, and BE in a forgiving energy. I didn't say complacent.

Mentally we can root out the old belief systems of dependence and powerlessness....and LIVE our truth..our power..our presence.

Spiritually we can SEE the world of LOVE, PEACE, BEAUTY, TRUST, HARMONY, TRUTH...In Reverence for ALL Life.
as our 'enemies' become our liberators..

I'm not an expert on the mayan calendar....
but it is said that today is the final day of the calendar..taking us now into a 'no time zone'...where we may live in a way that is expanding in nature.
By this I mean experiencing our natural ability as multidimentional beings.
We have focused on this spectrum for 26,000 years plus...and now we expand that focus to include more.

Today I remembered a dentist on who I was holding points...about 10 years ago..his name was Bob..he had the realization of the harm he had caused by putting mercury amalgams into peoples mouths. Afterward he changed his entire pratice to a holistic one...and offered his patients free removal of the silver fillings he had put in.....now this seems simple...but is actually a huge undertaking as the holistic dentists who offer their lives to the removal of these poisons are at high risk.
My friend Ryan Schroeder holistic dentist extrordinaire.....spent his professional life educating his patients...and removing mercury that other less aware dentists had put in. I recall a conversation i had with him about how careful he was with the proper disposal of mercury....and his consern for his staff and his pets. he told me that he had a procedure where he and his staff would put clean greens on brought in by a professional cleaner....and remove all clothing into a sealed container before leaving each day...he would shower immediately upon arriving home....
even though all precautions were taken..he was very aware of the risks...and was willing to take them in his dedication to his passion.
Thank you to all the dentists who are dedicated to this.

When we go into Sweat Lodge.....many subtle and not so subtle things occur....one of the beautiful aspects is our spirits commune without the outer sight. We SEE each other for exactly who and what we are.....the character we have developed. we learn to see in this way whether we are in or out of the lodge.
How things look are insignficant to the character of spirit that is ours individually.
How things FEEL becomes much more relevant.

my 16 year old son jumps in the car the other night....and says 'what do you think is going to happen?' i say when..he says over the next year...i say not sure..why?  he says i feel funny....i say how long have you been feeling this? he says...about a month....
I conclude...we are feeling The Change in our bodies as the adoms change.....dna shift.....mostly activated by our Sun....
so ride the wave folks.....
Forgive all
be thankful for ALL...
and have FUN!!!
Transmutation (permanent change) of consciousness......occurs when unconditional love is present.....so we are not projecting emotion onto another (blame)....we recognize it is an internal/personal process.
Self healing.

When we are in the midst of change (applying unconditional love consciously), projections (emotion) may be experienced coming from another.
When this is happening.....catch a reaction and stay in LOVE.
The karmic circle is then broken.

I appreciate the words spoken from Michael brown on the vid i posted below.....I'll add...the way of alchemy....the way of transmutaion....the way of consciousness change...the way to ascension consciousness...the way is through engaging forgiveness....and eventually love....through actively FEELING these energies during the moments we become aware of something we CHOOSE to CHANGE!

A synopsis of yesterdays teaching...

Love the outer life that we have created..(Yin aspect of creation)...
embrace.....enjoy......celebrate life (no matter what it looks like).....surrender in Love.
Then go within and surrender in Love to all that IS (Yang aspect of creation).
Connect this surrender (Power) into the body, and the circle of ascending consciousness is formed.

When we continue to resist (judge) the outer manifestations.....denying our participation in the creation...the creation perpetuates..until we stop to love it.
When love is present....everything less than love melts away..and the circle of energy flows.
Forgiveness is the way to Love....

This is the teaching of the loaves and fishes....
all possibility may be made manifest when the inner is accessed and connected to the outer.
The outer must be LOVED before the inner is accessible.
Its simple yet we have been stuck on resisting the outer for millenia....
Embrace/Love our creation....especially when its painful....

Saturday, October 01, 2011

 of seeing your reflection in another is complex .....when self responsibility to greater love is our commitment....our inner guidance will show us where something needs weeded out of consciousness...through emotional reactivity, mental justifications....good old fashioned judgements...good/bad....evil/divine.....etc.

I have heard people use it as a warring tactic.....'I am your reflection'.....
my most loving teachers.....give the amount of intensification that they see I can handle in the moment...always for my greater awakening....
too much reflection can create havoc...and set a person backwards....not enough brings stagnation....
and at times the best thing to do is to let it BE~
knowing the right amount...in the exact timing is for masters and parents...whose greatest force is unconditional LOVE~
those of us who are teaching or would like to teach....go inside ask for guidance....and do the best you can....no regrets~
we are all in our own ways moving into unity consciousness.

In meditation I was told the Earth Changes are Here. They are going to move very fast between now and November upon which there will be an end to tyranny. They talk about a Universal God or consciousness that is more like a frequency and a force. It will be pressing hard upon the Earth and this entire Galaxy evoking great change. Scientists are aware of these forces, they are measurable yet most do not know how they operate or the effects they will have on humanity and the Earth. We need to let go of physical reality as being solid and fixed, it is not. Understand the basics of the vibrational continuum; which goes from consciousness to light then energy and finally mass. The physical reality we are experiencing is changing. The energies on Earth are also changing. There is more light and the root cause is consciousness. The consciousness grid we once operated on is being dismantled and a new higher consciousness and energy is taking its place. The higher beings operate at cause or at the consciousness, light and energy levels. They are far superior and knowledgeable than the controllers who operate on lesser levels, less power, love, joy and wisdom. The frequency of the consciousness of the controllers is very low and unevolved. It is locked into the ego; which is self-serving and desires power and control over others. Their consciousness and the consciousness of those they have aligned themselves with can no longer operate in the new grid. The curtain has fallen, the wizard has been exposed and the emperor has no clothes. The controllers have become disgusting even to their own peers.

As these changes move down through the vibrational continuum we will see major social, economic and eventually physical Earth Changes. There will be a quickening in the action/reaction principle or Karma. There will be a great uncovering of all actions that are not in the highest and best good of humanity and the Earth. Everything out of alignment with Unity Consciousness a great wave that is now pressing hard upon the Earth will cease. The separation game, self-serving individuals, those who desire power and wealth at any expense will not surf this wave. There is no security for them anywhere; which they are now finding to be a truth. The Earth must do what is necessary to cleanse and heal despite many of our attachments. This includes major CMEs, solar flares which are conscious. There will be erratic and severe weather and unprecedented increases in earthquake and volcanic activity. This is no longer prophecy it is science and statistics. It is a cycle and the last cycle concluded in pole shifts, continents rising and falling with a new beginning. It is time to lovingly and joyously prepare knowing as in the last shift there are those who chose not to listen, not all incarnated to make this physical shift. I was told they did not listen to the Prophets in the past for various reasons and they are not listening now for the same reasons. I was also told the elite know yet there is a difference in being clever verses wise. Clever looks out for the self, wise knows there is no self in unity consciousness. Be well.

Lots of words....masculine energy.....lets move forward from here....all masculine and feminine energies are within each and every one....
lets not create a new paradigm based in old patterns....
women are not victims....we have always co-created....sometimes so covertly...we could deny our involvement.
Go within.....clear the energies there....and then and only then will harmony reign.....otherwise....pretty words and promises are empty.

The Greatest Speech Ever Made

As I was returning from from Sedona this July, inner guidance instructed me to go home to Canada and stay there til the end of the year....
when I returned home I received many inner instructions of preparation.
There is a lot of info of Elenin..and Nibiru..etc., our inner guidance/feelings direct our discernment.
The Hopi prophesy..Blue Star Kachina...Red Star Kachina shows us to be prepared for change.
True permanent change always comes from within consciousness.
When consciousness of emotion and belief systems are cleared...we may then have clear pathways of creating through unified consciousness. This is a return to our natural state.
Inner preparation is most important, with that said.....taking action physically is also important.
#1 is water....
follow your inner guidance and prepare on all levels....to live in harmony....Spirit and Nature dancing together....LOVE

The 'meek' are masters in the process of remembering.
One of the first steps in being 'meek' is to think/feel how to give rather than to receive.
When we remember a certain amount of our mastery...we know that it is in giving that we receive....giving with an open heart with no expectation, strings or need.
We master the spirit of giving...with discernment...giving for the sake of giving isn't always in the highest good...see what is appropriate and respect the free will of all.
Masters watch...and when the Light is quickening...they rush in to assist in the increase...because they can.

At present we are seeing the change from masculine thinking processes to the qualities of feminine.
The Orion Stargate that is in the process of aligning with this planet and all inhabitants hereof...is a gateway into Divine Love.
Life without resistance....Pure Essence..where all is naturally loving....peaceful.....trusting...truthful...harmonious...and BEAUTIFUL.....with reverence always...without thought...belief...IT simply IS.
Practice these qualities in daily life....to prepare for the transit/transition of consiousness to the Hearts Desire.
Let Nature take it's course....
the divine perfection exists within it~

Today I am back in Canada, after another sojourn in the Mecca....Sedona.
A lot of talk amongst the lovers of Earth regarding the upcoming days....
From the library of Halexandria and our friend Dan Sewell Ward....please read the light and enlightening words below.
See the Living Heart blog....for Drunvalo's sharing regarding the Mayan's and the 13 Crystal Skull placement...to usher in the New Age of Enlightenment....bout time eh?? (said with a Canadian accent)
All comes from within....all is connected to the Earth Mother and Cosmic Father....no worries....be in your Heart

OK..now that you’ve memorized this table, consider what it actually means.

For example, on February 27, 2010 (my mother’s 100th birthday), the Comet Elenin was 6.042 AU from Earth (or 6.042 times the mean distance from the Earth to the Sun). The Sun was below Earth’s celestial horizon, while the comet was above -- and within ~12’ of being in a perfect alignment: from the Sun to Earth and on to Comet Elenin (which is to say that the Earth is between the Sun and Elenin). This date is also the date for an 8.8 Richter Scale Earthquake in Chili.

Then in September of that year, Elenin was closer to the Sun, but further from Earth (because the Earth was now on the opposite side of the Sun from Elenin -- apparently running in abject fear from the very threatening comet whose nucleus might be 3 to 4 thousand kilometers in diameter). There was, again another alignment, this one including Mercury (i.e. Earth, then Mercury, then the Sun, then Elenin). The alignment was primarily a Right Ascension alignment (which shows up really nicely on the orbital diagram from the NASA Horizon website [1]), but the Declinations (including heavily inclined Mercury) are not quite as close. Still, there was the New Zealand 7.2 Earthquake thereabouts.

Then on the Ides of March, Elenin had covered quite a lot of ground, yielding an near alignment (Sun to Earth to Comet). This is also the approximate time for the Japanese 9.0 Fukushima earthquake. [All of the above can definitely be described as earth-shaking news.]

But of course, all of these earthquakes are purely coincidence... right?

Well... if we’re going to have a real conspiracy theory... then there is no such thing as coincidences or random events... and furthermore, we will have to assume that these events are indicating something far more sinister... or alternatively more beneficent... even, perhaps, divinely inspired.


Now... given this past, it’s now time to slip into the future... with all its unknowns and speculations.

For example, 9/11/2011, is the 10th anniversary of a series of four coordinated suicide attacks upon the United States by Islamic radicalists... AND the 318th anniversary of the turning point at the Battle of Vienna (9/11/1683) in which the Holy League was victorious over the Islamic/Turkish invasion. [And yes, these dates were NOT a coincidence... and in fact, quite intentional.]

9/11/2011 is ALSO the date of Elenin’s perihelion, it's closest approach to the Sun. Coincidence?

Our old friend, Richard Hoagland (see, e.g., Iapetus) finds that a bit of a stretch... as does Project Camelot -- both of whom can spend hours on the subject!

Meanwhile, roughly two weeks later, we have yet another alignment: one involving the Earth, Comet Elenin, the Sun and Mercury. In fact, quite a good one, particularly between Elenin and Mercury.

This 9/27/2011 date is important in that IF a major earthquake occurs on this date, it's really going to get MY attention... and perhaps the attention of others . This bit comes under the category of a prediction, and in the event it doesn’t happen, the theorists will have to do some urgent rationalizations. If on the other hand, there is a major earthquake... then, all bets are off.

The next two dates are... well... a bit more questionable. In one case, the Comet allegedly "crosses the Earth’s orbit"... at least in the two dimensional diagram [1]. And then the Earth "crosses the Comet’s orbit at the previous point". However, in three dimensions, there is this nasty dimension of height, and these claims of "crossings” may be seriously misleading. Much has been made by some researchers, but the evidence does not appear to be strong for anything notable.

On the other hand, the next date... the Prophetic 11/11/11 (drum roll please; cue the long-stemmed trumpets)... 11/11/11 does indeed have some serious possibilities... and assuming we ignore the "20" in front of the last "11". In this case, there is an alignment of Venus-Mercury-Earth-Comet Elenin. This might also be a coincidence, but as Hoagland/Project Camelot (in the video linked above) have pointed out: such “coincidences” may be less random events and co-inciding ones. Something definitely seems to be in the works... and quite possibly, these facts are well understood by governments as well as eccentric speculators such as me and thee.

Recently, there has also been considerable "hype" about NASA talking to its people and reminding them of the supposedly long-standing NASA policy of NASA employees, associates, and cronies... specifically that of being prepared for disasters, having emergency preparedness kits at hand, and knowing what to do in the event of a disaster... the up close and personal kind. As Gerald Celente would have phrased it (albeit with a lot more eloquence and enthusiastic passion): everyone is going to want to have the 3 G’s available, i.e., Guns, Gold, and Getaway plans at their disposal. [I keep thinking 4 G's... to include Girls... but that's me.]

Then there’s FEMA, another one of those radical, leftist, fear-mongering groups. On June 9, 2011, FEMA issued a joint press release with the FCC [Federal Communications Conglomerate... actually Commission... beholden to Corporate interests] in which there was to be a “Nationwide Test Of The Emergency Alert System”... said test which, prophetically, was scheduled for 11/09/11.

Hoagland, et al found this coincidence a bit much as well. After all, this is the FIRST test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS), and for it to be promulgated well ahead of time... shouting from the roof tops that 11/9/11 is a day to pay attention... is very, very... curious.

[Hoagland, et al, did not, however, point out the potentially good news that any Emergency Alert System Incident, would inevitably become known thereafter as the Big EASI.]

There is also this bit:

"As the federal, state, tribal, territorial and local governments prepare for and test their capabilities [didn't know we had "tribal governments," eh?], this event serves as a reminder that everyone should establish an emergency preparedness kit and emergency plan for themselves, their families, communities, and businesses. Anyone can visit www.Ready.gov for more information about how to prepare for and stay informed about what to do in the event of an actual emergency." [emphasis added]

It’s hard to imagine how anyone could get ready for gov... or even assume there was ever a ready gov... but then again, I probably should look up the web link before getting too carried away.

2005 YU55

Up to this point, we have been concentrating on Elenin... such is the power of hype.

However, this smaller, 400 meter wide asteroid has generated a bit of interest in and of itself... not to mention all those strange and bewildering coincidences of dates.

To being with, we have to point out that 2005 YU55 is a local boy, wandering purposely between the orbits of Mars and Venus for lo these many years... and occasionally, with respect to the Earth, dropping by for tea. YU, as his friends call him, is one of the poster boys of the Near-Earth-Object NASA program.

The relevant news is that YU will pass within 0.85 lunar distances from Earth on 11/8/11 (11/9/11 in some locales; check your local listings). The asteroid should attain a visual brightness of 11th magnitude [another friggin’ coincidence?], and be “easily visible to observers in the northern and southern hemispheres” [the latter which pretty well encompasses most of the Earth]. Furthermore:

"The closest approach to Earth and the Moon will be respectively 0.00217 AU and 0.00160 AU on 2011 November 8 at 23:28 and November 9 at 07:13 UT." [4]

The fact that 2005 YU55 is doing its thing with respect to Earth within days of the Elenin bit... is quite possibly just a bit too much.

Other fun dates include June 9, 2011 (The FEMA press release) when YU55, Mercury, Venus, and Mars were in approximate alignment; there is a repeat of this same alignment just prior to the July 1st Solar Eclipse; October 17th (see Elenin's Table above) with an alignment of Earth, YU55 and Mercury (and almost Venus); and on the really relevant date of 11/8-9/11 when Earth, Mercury, and Venus are in a near perfect alignment.

It might be worth noting that YU55 has an orbital period of 1.22 years, a low inclination of 0.5131 degrees and is due to pass even closer to Venus on 17 January 2029. [5] YU gets around, the rascal!

The latter date is of course only a few months prior to Apophis [6] giving Earth a near fly-by on... of all of the friggin’ dates... Friday, the 13th of April, 2029. Geez!

You know... it just might be time to check out www.Ready.gov... and perhaps upping the ante a bit with a month’s worth of supplies (as opposed to 3 days... and thus allowing for quite a bit of additional time for DC to actually get the word... particularly on a weekend).

[4] UT is not University of Texas time, but “Universal Time”, aka Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), the latter unrelated to Thames Nasty Time (TNT).

[5 ] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2005_YU55

[6] "In all analyses of trends, cycles, and so forth, there is always the possibility of a Wild Card. This is the case where all bets are off... and every trend is disrupted. The best example might be Apophis... scheduled for a 2029 event (curiously, Friday, April 13th of that year).

"In Egyptian myth, Apophis was the ancient spirit of evil and destruction, a demon that was determined to plunge the world into eternal darkness." [Read the link... trust me.]

Okay... you got my attention. [Who names these asteroids, anyway?]

"In the case of the asteroid, it has an inclination of ~40 degrees, is 400 meters wide (four football field lengths)... and an impact -- were it to hit the Earth -- that would result in a release of energy roughly 100,000 times the Hiroshima bomb. Can you imagine giving your all in a war, only to have much of your success nullified by just such an asteroid?

“The analysis of Apophis previews situations likely to be encountered with NEAs yet to be discovered: a close approach that is not dangerous [?]; nonetheless close enough to obscure the proximity and the danger of a later approach (like Apophis in 2036).” In fact, the first fly by might amplify the trajectory prediction uncertainties caused by difficult-to-observe physical characteristics interacting with solar radiation as well as other factors.

"Right now, Apophis is expected to approach within 15,000 miles from the Earth’s surface... or about 6% of the distance to the Moon." [Taken from World War III... and Other Fun Prognostications.] This distance is a lot closer than 2005 YU55.
