This is it!
The Grand Opening of the Gaia Scene community forum! Thank you for attending.
I’d like to share with you now the welcoming words of my dear sisters and workmates who’ve been busy as bees with me building the new forum, Gaia Scene, which is opening it’s doors today.
I’m proud to be in their company, and extremely blessed to have them co-creating with me.
I’m so exited! We’ve built a house!
Up to now we’ve only had the Yahoo Discussion Group, which energetically functions like a mailbox. Contacts, sharings and informations come fly-by in a mail – today they’re here and present within the community, tomorrow they’re gone again.
What a difference this is from the old mailbox, to enter a house with many rooms! Space in here for a huge diversity of individuals; meeting and sharing, exchanging information, experience and understanding, and building community.
It was and is wonderful to have been participant and co-moderator of our Yahoo Group for the past three years. I’ve met wonderful people, made some real good friends, met soul sisters and brothers, shared a lot of my Self, learned a lot about my Self, and expanded and polished my expertise in the Art of Communication.
Sometimes, in busy times with lots of traffic, I’ve felt some sadness about the quick flow of messages in the mailbox, and my inability to adequately respond to everything that touched me. Yahoogroup messages are very much in the moment, they don’t have a container to hold the vibrations, a mailbox doesn’t offer enough body for energy to stay and circulate.
Therefore I often don’t share what I feel resonating and coming up in me in response to a message, simply because the timing doesn’t suit me. When I find the time and energy for a reply, the attention of the group has already gone to another topic, and it just doesn’t fit to try and bring that passed flow back into the now.
Already three years ago I started getting on my boss’ (Andrea Scully’s) nerves, nagging her, “Let’s get rid of the mailbox and set-up a browser forum; let’s build a house for this community!”
Back then there was no resonance from the team. It wasn’t the right time. Divine timing is always right…
Now is the time. We’ve created a browser-based forum, a place people can easily go to by one click from the blog’s main page.
I so much love going into our community house! This has body, wow! Already after a few days work I can feel the energy whenever I enter. I can feel the people who pour in their heart-blood to this sacred and safe space.
I feel the blessings of all those wonderful souls who show their appreciation of the team’s service, by donating to the HopeChest Fund and making all this possible. I can even feel the anticipation of those yet-unknown friends out there in the world who are longing for this house to give them a second home.
I feel our brother, Archangel Michael at the doorway; the front wall vibrates with His blue ray (at the other walls and corners other Archangels have taken their position), and the portal opens and closes by His guidance. Those who enter in the spirit of peace, truth and compassion find His door open and His house welcoming.
Archangel Michael has always been with the moderators of his forum. Yes, His forum.
The Yahoo discussion group was founded after Michael had asked Steve to create a place for people to meet, in order to build community. He also secured help so that Steve wouldn’t have to do the work of holding the forum together.
The right people would come, He said, and He would guide them all along the way. And so He does. All the way. All the time.
And all of this has only become possible because of you, dear friends. My deepest gratitude goes out to all of you beloved readers who support the Golden Age of Gaia, and participate in building community and a world that works for everyone.
Daily life doesn’t offer as many aware mirrors as such a community of awakening fellow travelers does. Nothing’s fostered the expansion of my consciousness more than participating in a discussion forum. Sharing and learning from the feedback of the group is a great awakening tool.
Don’t miss it, dear friends, we’re building community and welcome you home. I’m looking forward to meeting you here. Love, life, and laughter expands when it’s shared, and here’s a safe and secure place to do so.
See you soon, Beloveds…
From Alex Clark-
It’s interesting for me to look back at my history on the internet and remember the primary reason I purchased a computer in 1999 was simply so I could join an online forum.
Fifteen years have flown by in that time and the technology and platforms of this type of communication have evolved just as fast. Anyone who remembers being a member of an AOL group with dial-up internet access knows exactly what I’m talking about.
Over the past decade, our ability to communicate globally has increased exponentially. What I’ve noticed during this time, much of which has been spent in forums, asking questions, sharing my experience and providing information, is a decided shift in pronouns.
When I first began communicating with beings online, the use of the pronoun ‘You’ was very prevalent. It was all about you doing this and how it makes others feel. The energy of blame and outwardly-directed agression was prevalent. It was certainly choppy seas as many struggled to find a place to be heard, share their collective blame and stand in small disenfranchised groups.
As beings started to get the hang of communicating through the ethers, there was a decided shift to the ‘I’. Many folks stopped blaming others and began standing firm in their personal feelings and beliefs. A platform for being heard had been achieved, and for some, it became a soapbox to call out from.
I’d say that during this time, the energy supported a vast level of geopolitical awakening within the collective, and many sought out a family of sorts, a place where others stood with them in islands of belief, wearing what they stood for like team colors.
Technology again shifted as desktop and laptop computers made way for smartphones and tablets. Internet communication went mobile, and the ability to instantly communicate across vast distances made our world appear much smaller.
A whole generation of young folks then flooded the internet. These kids haven’t been born into a computerless world, and many have amazing innate technological savviness. Social media cements a laticework of connection between beings that can only be compared to the etheric energy grids. Lives across the planet are connected in real time.
In this time of greatly accelerated energies, I’ve seen a decided shift into the use of the pronoun ‘We’. Folks are feeling more connected than ever, even as the vestiges of the old world crumble and release the last limitations of separation.
People are seeing in this the awesome opportunity to work together. They’re feeling heard. They’re seeing themselves nestled within the ‘We’, and how working for common goals and support for everyone builds a much firmer foundation than operating as the ‘I’.
The beauty of this circle is, of course, that the’We’ is really the divine “I” of the All-That-Is, so all are served in this communion.
This energy of the group, of the ‘We’, is so exciting to experience, and to work and play within. This feeling of personal support in the midst of the collective is so new for many of us, but this energy is indeed intended and nurtured within our new Lightworker community that is lovingly named Gaia Scene.
I feel so blessed to be a part of bringing forth this new energy and communications creation, as an offering to ALL.
THE MAGIC MOMENT IS HERE, AND THIS IS ZAP #88. IN CHINESE CULTURE, THE NUMBER 8 IS IMPORTANT AS IT MEANS PROSPERITY AND LIFE REALLY. VERY LUCKY NUMBER AND SOUGHT AFTER FOR CELL NUMBERS AND THE LIKE.
IRAQ’S PRIME MINISTER, HAIDER AL-ABADI, SEEMS TO BE QUITE HAPPY AFTER HIS COUNTRY APPROVED THE 2015 BUDGET LAST THURSDAY. THE DINAR IS NOW REVALUED, AND PRELIMINARY REPORTS PEG IT AT USD 3.70 SOMETHING.
REMEMBER WHEN I SAID THAT THE CHINESE DO IMPORTANT THINGS ON THE 1ST OF THE FIRST MONTH, 2ND OF THE SECOND MONTH, THE 3RD OF THE THIRD MONTH AND SO ON? WELL, TOMORROW, MANY CRITICAL THINGS WILL BE AGREED TO, AND THE FOLLOWING DAY (WHICH ALSO COINCIDES WITH THE NEW LUNAR CYCLE…GO FIGURE), MAJOR FUNDS WILL BEGIN TO FLOW OUT.
THIS IS INDEED THE “IT” WE HAVE ALL BEEN AWAITING.
AND MY TENURE AS ZAP WILL BE OVER (WELL…REAL SOON NOW), AS THE PROSPERITY FOR OUR HUMANITY WILL MANIFEST.
THERE ARE MANY ITEMS OF INTEL THAT HAVE REACHED ME, BUT FOR THE MOST PART, THEY CONFIRM WHAT IS HAPPENING IN RESPECT OF THE ABOVE. ONE ITEM THAT IS VERY IMPORTANT IS THE CONTINUING CLEANUP OF THE SYSTEM. FOR EXAMPLE, THE PHILIPPINES (AND OTHER SELECT COUNTRIES) ARE GETTING A BANK AUDIT DONE BY THE CHINESE FAMILY. THIS IS THE FINAL STEP IN THE CLEANUP TO BEGIN THE REDEMPTION OF THE ASSETS CONTAINED THERE FROM THE MARCOS ERA, AND FROM BEFORE.
LAST IME, I SAID “NO MORE STEALING” BY THE IDIOTS THAT WISH TO RAPE AND PILLAGE. WELL, IT IS ALL TRUE. REALLY. MISS PHIPPS CHECKED WITH THE PIGS, WHO CHECKED WITH THE CHICKENS, WHO CHECKED WITH BIGFOOT AND ALL ARE IN AGREEMENT. AND SORRY, THE DIAL A DINAR SERVICE IS DEFUNCT. IT WAS A NOBLE EFFORT, FRAUGHT WITH THE BEST OF RUMOR FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT, BUT SADLY IT HAS COME TO A TIMELY END.
VEGETABLES SEEM TO BE SCARCE TOO.
NOT MUCH MORE TO SAY OTHER THAN IT IS ALL HERE AND COMING OUT OF THE CLOAK OF SECRECY THAT HAS SHROUDED MOVEMENTS AND EVENTS. IT IS ALL GOOD.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when someone says the word ‘hemp’? For the uninformed, marijuana might immediately pop up, which could cause them to automatically shun the plant.
Almost any article you’ll find about hemp distinguishes it from marijuana, which is closely related to it but doesn’t actually have much to do with it. Unfortunately, the United States closely links hemp with marijuana by putting them in the same ‘Schedule 1’ drug category.
Even though industrial hemp doesn’t contain anywhere near enough THC (the active ingredient in marijuana) to produce any kind of ‘high’, the US government has utterly failed to distinguish it from its psychoactive counterpart.
Despite hemp’s numerous benefits, the Federal government’s comfortable pretending it’s the same as marijuana when, in fact, the two are very different. You can’t get high off of hemp, but it’s legally considered a dangerous drug.
Most people don’t realize that the only people who’d really be hurt by hemp’s legalization are the interests who want to maintain the grip that the cotton and timber industries (among many others) have on our society. Due its many uses, hemp’s a great alternative to things like cotton and the aforementioned industries would lose sales if it were legalized.
Here, we’ll explore some of hemp’s benefits as we plow our way through the misconceptions that have been mistakenly accepted as reality.
The intention of this article is to help break some of the socially accepted stereotypes surrounding hemp while raising awareness of its uses, and if enough awareness is raised about it, it could eventually be legalized for industrial use and finally show us what it can do.
A lot of other countries already cultivate it for its industrial riches, but the US has yet to catch up.
This world could change significantly if hemp’s many uses were understood and accepted, and in time, the widespread ignorance that surrounds this plant will be replaced with an understanding of the many benefits it can offer our society. We could definitely use something to help us out of our ongoing economic slump.
explains why hemp is such a valued plant.
“Hemp is one of the oldest agricultural crops, cultivated as early as 4000 B.C. in China. It has been mentioned in different contexts in several ancient texts:
“It was grown all over the world and valued for its medicinal benefits.
“Once its many properties were discovered, it was treated as a precious substance and even given importance in religious ceremonies.
“Hemp is one of the oldest known sources for cloth
“Composites of hemp and limestone have been discovered in ancient Roman structures.” (1)
We’re also told about how the East India Company grew industrial hemp and used it on their ships (and, I’d imagine, on plenty of other things).
“The naval prominence in the Netherlands around the 17th century brought about the Golden Age. The Dutch East India Company has established their shipping trade globally, with the financial support of the Dutch merchant empire. This naval industry relied on hemp to a very large extent.
“It was the second most important component in ship-building, after wood. It was used as rope, canvas and to waterproof the hull through caulking. Around 21 kilometers / 13 miles of rope and several hundred square meters / yards of canvas were needed for each sailing vessel. This in turn increased the cultivation of the cannabis plant.” (2)
The end of this quote mentions the cannabis plant, and I think it’s important to remember that there is a difference between the two plants (hemp and marijuana). I’m sure they’ve been grown together in times when the latter wasn’t outlawed, but it’s very possible to grow hemp without growing marijuana or producing any THC whatsoever.
Hemp Benefits also explains hemp’s role in building up the American colonies, which would eventually become the United States.
“The British colonized the region of modern-day America and set up large agricultural fields to produce the raw material, mainly in Kentucky and Missouri.
“The processed fibers were exported to England and the other colonists. Employment opportunities increased in America as the spinning and weaving industry grew, eventually leading to the War of Independence against England’s dominance.” (3)
The US thrived cultivating hemp until interests across seas who sold it for cheaper prices started to dominate the market (the US became one of their buyers). They were forced to start growing it again during World War 2, lest they wanted to miss out on its industrial benefits.
“The growth of hemp in the U.S. dwindled with the availability of cheaper imported fibers from Manila and the East India Company.
“During [World] War II, however, the Japanese took possession of the Philippines and the East India Company, and since jute supply from India was also restricted, the Americans had to produce hemp once again, for industrial purposes as well as to sustain the vast demand from the army and navy, as follows:
“Rope made from hemp was used in rigging, towing and mooring the ships
“Paratroopers needed webbing for their parachutes
“The fiber was used to make shoes for the soldiers
“It served as a fire-hose of average quality
“Thus, hemp has played a vital role in global history.” (4)
Most hemp advocates have seen the video the US government made in the 1940s entitled ‘Hemp For Victory’, and this video displays that at one time, the US government clearly knew the difference between hemp and marijuana and were willing to use hemp to help this country.
Their stance on hemp has definitely changed since the 40s, and again, this is probably because of the vested interests in other commodities who don’t want to lose out on the money hemp would save.
Hemp could easily overtake cotton, lumber and plenty of other things that are grown industrially, and if it were legalized, the corporations who make big money off of these depleting resources wouldn’t profit as greatly as they’re used to.
It seems like a small price to pay for the revolutionary things hemp offers our society, but greed always seems to trump the will do to what’s right.
David P. West tells us that hemp’s among the most misunderstood plants of our time.
“Surely no member of the vegetable kingdom has ever been more misunderstood than hemp. For too many years, emotion—not reason—has guided our policy toward this crop. And nowhere have emotions run hotter than in the debate over the distinction between industrial hemp and marijuana.” (5)
David also explains the difference between THC, marijuana’s active ingredient, and CBD, the non-intoxicating cannabinoid that’s found in industrial hemp.
“Cannabis is the only plant genus that contains the unique class of molecular compounds called cannabinoids. Many cannabinoids have been identified, but two preponderate: THC, which is the psychoactive ingredient of Cannabis, and CBD, which is an antipsychoactive ingredient.
“One type of Cannabis is high in the psychoactive cannabinoid, THC, and low in the antipsychoactive cannabinoid, CBD. This type is popularly known as marijuana. Another type is high in CBD and low in THC. Variants of this type are called industrial hemp.” (6)
Hemp contains a lot of CBD and almost no THC, but most people who don’t know anything about it are too worried that legalizing it will lead their children to try to get high off of it. It’d feel pretty bad for anyone who tried to get intoxicated from hemp, because it seems silly and it wouldn’t work.
Parents don’t have to worry about their children seeing it as some new drug, and all we have to do is let them know about the difference between it and marijuana.
We can let our children know that these plants are related but one of them serves various industrial purposes and the other causes an intoxication that they’re best to stay away from – at least until they’re at an age where they can make their own decisions.
The fact that hemp and marijuana are so closely related has been used as a reason to keep the former’s enormous benefits from us, and it’s because of the close-mindedness of the public (and our elected officials) that it hasn’t yet been legalized.
If we can understand the difference between the two related plants, we can bring an end to the close-mindedness and open up to the idea that this plant might actually help us out of the industrial and economic mess we’re in.
David West explains why hemp isn’t intoxicating.
“Myth: Smoking industrial hemp gets a person high.
“Reality: The THC levels in industrial hemp are so low that no one could get high from smoking it. Moreover, hemp contains a relatively high percentage of another cannabinoid, CBD, that actually blocks the marijuana high. Hemp, it turns out, is not only not marijuana; it could be called ‘antimarijuana.’” (7)
CBD actually prevents a THC induced high, and what dismal traces of THC are left in the industrial hemp plant are rendered useless by this compound. This alone should reassure scared parents that nothing about the hemp plant will intoxicate them or their children or even change their consciousness in the tiniest way.
This plant is as harmless as the trees we use for wood and paper, and it can actually make stronger and more durable paper than what we receive from trees. Not to mention that it grows much, much quicker than any tree ever will, and it can be harvested three times a year (as opposed to waiting seventy years for a tree to grow into maturity).
We’ve heard a lot of talk about hemp oil lately, and apparently, some people are concerned that it’s as intoxicating as marijuana. David West busts this myth.
“Myth: Hemp oil is a source of THC.
“Reality: Hemp oil is an increasingly popular product, used for an expanding variety of purposes. The washed hemp seed contains no THC at all.
“The tiny amounts of THC contained in industrial hemp are in the glands of the plant itself. Sometimes, in the manufacturing process, some THC- and CBD-containing resin sticks to the seed, resulting in traces of THC in the oil that is produced. The concentration of these cannabinoids in the oil is infinitesimal. No one can get high from using hemp oil.” (8)
Again, I’d feel bad for anyone who tried to get high off of hemp oil, because they just wouldn’t gain the effects they desire. If they’re looking to cure cancer or some other type of illness, then hemp oil could very well be their answer, but it won’t intoxicate them or change their mental state one bit.
It just doesn’t contain enough of marijuana’s active ingredient to be intoxicating, which naturally makes people question why the US government (and other governments) would close-mindedly classify it in the same category as marijuana.
Just because the two plants are related doesn’t mean one has to speak for the other, and even the most passionate marijuana haters can recognize that beyond their close relation, they don’t really have much to do with each other.
We’re the ones who decided they had to be the same thing, and we’re keeping ourselves from prospering by refusing to open our minds a little.
Now, we’ll examine some of the health benefits of hemp seeds. Hemp doesn’t just have industrial value – its seeds provide nutrition in the form of certain essential acids we’re meant to have in our daily diet.
We’d receive a significance dose of these acids if we ate hemp seeds every day, and we’ll learn more about them and the overall nutritional value of hemp before we wrap this report up.
Care2.com tells us about the fatty acids hemp seeds contain, which are important for our health.
“Sharon Palmer, author of The Plant Powered Diet, wasn’t wasting her breath when she said, ‘I think hemp is the next ‘it’ food — it has been for a while.’
“The hemp seed is bursting with Omega-6 and Omega-3, essential fatty acids that have heart health and anti inflammatory benefits. Hemp seeds are nutty in flavor and breathe life into salads, desserts, yogurts, cereals, and breads. Hemp seeds can be turned into butter, milk, protein powder, finishing oil, and soap.” (9)
We’re also told about some of the benefits of hemp as a plant.
“Unfortunately, Uncle Sam outlawed hemp farming in 1958, a shame when you consider how amazing a crop it is. The plant thrives without pesticides, purifies the soil around it, and kills weeds. The U.S. is the only country that bans industrial hemp farming, quelling what could be an agricultural and financial boon for our indebted country.” (10)
Not a lot of other plants actually kill weeds, and most of them are overtaken by weeds, vines or some other type of invasive plant species. Hemp can apparently thrive without being overthrown by weeds or anything else, and this, along with its uncountable industrial benefits, makes it a good candidate for farmers.
According to Care2, adding hemp seeds to our diet could give us more energy and vitality.
“The protein and fiber in hemp combine to slow digestion, which prevents spikes in blood sugar and therefore sustains your body’s energy. A diet rich in hemp promotes digestive regularity.” (11)
Not only can they give us more energy – they can keep us full for a longer period of time.
“When sprinkled on your cereal or fruit at breakfast, hemp protein and fiber also help aid in satiety, which will prevent you from snacking and keep you fuller longer.” (12)
Hemp is one of the only plants with seeds that contain Omega 3, which can apparently keep Alzheimer’s away.
“The Omega-3 fatty acids in hemp reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, lower blood pressure, and may even ward off Alzheimer’s disease. Hemp seeds are one of the few Omega-3 sources found in plants.” (13)
Hemp seeds contain Omega 3 and Omega 6, which can keep our skin, hair and bones healthy. Their amino acids can also help us control our muscles and maintain our cells and organs.
“The Omega-6 fatty acids in hemp stimulate skin and hair growth, maintain bone health, regulate metabolism, and help the brain function.
“Hemp seeds contain essential amino acids, which improves muscle control, mental function, and normal body maintenance of cells, muscle, tissues, and organs.” (14)
Hemp seeds help the human body in all these ways, and yet, growing it still isn’t acceptable in the US. Its industrial benefits alone should cause us to reconsider our biased stance on it, and even if it weren’t for these benefits, the acids its seeds provide (which the body needs to stay healthy) should lead us to consider that this plant isn’t so bad.
People are nothing if not judgmental, and all it takes is a few people in power telling us something’s bad for everyone to jump onboard. Most people will do little to no research on hemp, because they rely primarily on their governments, mainstream media, and general social conditioning to know if something’s ‘good’ or ‘bad’.
In relying on society to tell us what’s right for us, we start to overlook things that’d benefit our planet greatly but pose a risk to corporations who make money off of the alternatives they’ve relentlessly pushed onto us.
I think people need to wake up and educate themselves about hemp’s numerous benefits, and instead of immediately lumping it in with marijuana, which is itself lumped in with drugs that are much more dangerous, we can see that the two only have as much to do with each other as we let them.
The degree to which we associate hemp with marijuana determines its true relation to the drug, and if we wanted to, we could keep the two completely separate and grow hemp by itself for purely industrial purposes.
Plenty of people (and countries) already do, and there hasn’t been a spike in marijuana use in the countries who allow hemp to be grown industrially. If there were, you can bet the mainstream media would let us know.
In time, the haze of confusion surrounding hemp and marijuana will clear, and we can start to see this plant for what it really is – a revolutionary godsend that could help the hurt economies of various nations, introduce jobs galore to countries that outsource employment to other, distant places, and bear seeds that help our bodies prosper.
We just have to clear our biases and replace collective ignorance with knowledge, and we might find hope for this planet after all. Hemp might not solely help our planet thrive, but it’ll help us a lot more than most people are comfortable giving it credit for.
|Playing Our Part for the Planet
By Sarah Varcas
The final month of 2014 is dominated by the penultimate exact Uranus/Pluto square mid month (14th/15th December). With it we enter the grand finale of this potent alignment which has been with us since 2012 and finally begins to fade come April next year. No one has been left untouched by the quickening power of this time. Many peoples’ lives now bear little resemblance to how they looked before these two planetary heavy-weights began their alchemical dance. Nothing and no one has been protected from the destructively creative grace conjured by the cosmos these past few years. The challenge for so many has been to let go and trust, to embrace the changes brought about no matter how devastating they may have felt at the time. To look into the darkness, of self, of other, of life and to recognise that within it lays the deepest wisdom, the most enduring truths. This past year has been about acknowledging and owning the personal and collective shadow in order to recognise that it is not some dreadful realm to be feared, rejected and denied but simply another part of ourselves to be embraced, accepted and, in doing so, brought into the wholeness of all that we are. This year has demanded the deepest authenticity we could muster and then some! It has been both brutal and beautiful in equal measure, destructive and creative at one and the same time. To quote Joni Eareckson-Tada when referring to the wheelchair that symbolises her quadriplegia from the age of seventeen, this year has been ‘a bruise of a blessing, a terrible grace’. And this coming month which brings it to a close, reminds us that whilst the journey is nowhere near over, some of the more challenging times are now behind us.
Of course, as with so many things, attitude is the final arbiter of where we find ourselves at this point. The more open we have managed to be to the shocks and surprises, upheavals and realignments of the past two and half years the more we can begin to sense the gradual easing of pressure and lightening of energy as the year comes to a close. If, however, we have continued to resist and battle against the cosmic reordering of our lives we may find ourselves exhausted and depleted, wondering where on earth we go from here. It is, however, little wonder that we opt for resistance when the very fabric of our lives is falling apart all around us. It seems the logical thing to do. We must fight for what matters, not surrender to forces which seem intent on our demise. But as logical as it may seem to be, and as negative as it all may look, we still have time to embrace change not fight it, take our part in it not wrestle ceaselessly to make it stop. If we can do so we can still conduct powerful forces of transformation into our lives and directly experience the fact that what felt like death is in fact the nascent beginnings of a new life more vibrant and connected than anything we had before.
This month begins with an opportunity to look after each other and recognise the vulnerability of our shared humanity. We all have our own personal battles to fight, our fears and anxieties, shame and grief. No one is immune to these fundamental challenges of the human realm even though for some it can be all too easy to assume one’s own lot is harder than someone else’s. Throughout the first week of December we are encouraged to set such views aside and do what we can to help others manage their troubles, forgetting about our own for a while. The more people who can commit to doing this the more care and compassion will be available for us all. Whilst it can be relatively easy to tend the emotional wounds of another when they are distressed and seeking support, it can be much harder when those wounds are expressed as anger, aggression or defensiveness. As December gets underway it’s worth remembering that we may encounter just such behaviour. Recognising it as an expression of pain or fear, lack of self-worth or crippling doubt, can help us respond in ways that de-escalate rather than worsen a tricky situation. The human psyche is incredibly complex and we are rarely quite what we appear to be! Bearing this in mind now will help us maintain an open heart and mind in the face of someone who may otherwise cause us to close them and move along fast.
On 8th December Jupiter begins a four month retrograde journey through Leo which, together with Saturn’s entry into Sagittarius (the sign ruled by Jupiter) on 23rd December, marks the beginning of a formative time, especially for those with planets in Sagittarius. The natural exuberance that comes on the Sagittarian vibration may be tempered here by a need to develop depth of perception alongside breadth of experience and a willingness to delay satisfaction in favour of more enduring rewards once certain qualities have been developed. Jupiter retrograde in Leo brings us face to face with our ego and what we do with it. It poses questions about how we interact with others, our willingness to question ourselves, our motives, our behaviour and whether we use our personality to forward our own interests or promote a better quality of life for everyone, ourselves included. Saturn in the sign of the archer demands that we now live the truth that we have sweated to unearth during the past two years while it traversed Scorpio. Whatever we discovered during this time, about ourselves, other people, how life really works as opposed to how we think it should, our task in the next three years is to live that truth on a daily basis. To allow it to take root in our consciousness and stand by it no matter what, come hell or high water. And yes, if those truths begin to shape-shift into something new, to shape-shift with them, in constant pursuit of guileless authenticity.
The Uranus/Pluto square, exact on 15th December GMT raises the issue of spiritual illusion and the guises in which it may continue to trip us up even now. Evolution takes time, be it physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. We may want it done and dusted but the cosmos has other ideas. Whilst some individual shifts happen in the blink of an eye, rendering the past something to which we can never return, for those shifts to be fully grounded, lived through and out the other side takes time, commitment and a willingness to see all sides of what they reveal. We do not know the true nature of change by its moment of occurrence but by the consequences of it taking root in our lives. Whilst a new road discovered may look beautiful we cannot know this for sure until we have walked its length and seen for ourselves. Nor can we claim to know it better than others. Judging it on the first few yards tells us nothing about what lies around the first corner. If we have been too quick to embrace transformation and proclaim ourselves renewed without having lived the change into its fullness before doing so, this alignment reminds us that the universe is not here for our benefit to deliver whatever we happen to desire when we demand it. Instead we are part of a collective organism, forever moving into wholeness, evolving in each moment. As such we do not arrive at ‘transformed’, we pass through it, over and over again as we are more deeply refined and revealed by life. This alignment keeps us humble and warns us to keep a check on our ego. We’re not in a race to the finish and no one, except all of us, needs to win.
When the Sun shifts into Capricorn on 21st December (GMT), followed closely by the Capricorn New Moon on 22nd, Uranus completes five months retrograde in Aries. It’s time to get down to business and walk our talk! In days gone by the outer planets such as Uranus and Pluto were deemed purely generational and unavailable to us as individuals, but all that is changing now. Uranus can be as personal as we make it right now, which means that we can become the power of innovative change, up-ending all that we have assumed in favour of the liberation of something altogether fresh and new. We can make 2015 a year like no other and this turnabout of Uranus encourages us to do so. If we’ve been saying we need to implement change in our lives now is the time to commit and begin to follow through. Uranus is on our side. The inner process of discovery is over for now. It’s time for the outer world to catch up and it is we who need to make that happen, not waiting for a miracle to deliver us where we want to be, but resolving to be that miracle for ourselves and each other, unleashing change and transformation on the world like never before, the more radical the better! As mentioned previously, Saturn enters Sagittarius on 23rd, heralding the very beginning of a ‘stand by your truth no matter what’ cycle to complete the cosmic message to get off our backsides and start doing what we’ve been saying we would!!
26th December sees the North Node, Uranus, Chiron and Pluto join forces in an alignment which continues until the middle of January. As such they form the bridge from the old year into the new across which we can choose what we carry and what we discard over the side into the abyss of ‘no longer needed on the journey’. But a warning is in order here. We run the risk of making unnecessary hard work out of life at this point. There may be a tendency to ratchet up the stress simply to motivate ourselves to make a stand, declare enough is enough and decide to live differently in 2015. Fair enough, if that’s what’s needed to make us change tack so be it. But we could decide not to make such a personal drama out of things and realise that this planet and all of her inhabitants are in a process of deep and powerful renewal right now. There is much to be let go – old habits and ways of living that are wounding Mother Earth and those who live upon her; tired beliefs which pit us against each other and nature itself; lifestyles which place personal satisfaction above collective well-being. There is plentiful evidence of the need for deep change everywhere: socially, politically, environmentally and spiritually. We don’t need to rely on a personal drama to wake us up. This collective journey should be enough to garner our commitment to be the transformation required and live more peacefully, making fewer demands upon the earth and her inhabitants.
As this month comes to a close and 2014 with it, we have an opportunity to look back upon a year which has seen phenomenal shifts for so many and times of extreme stress and challenge as a result. But it has also shown us who we need to be to thrive in this evolving world, and how to align our desires with those of the collective in order for a win/win situation to prevail. As Uranus & Pluto have reminded us this month, there is no destination, only an on-going process of change. The question is one of the direction and depth of that change and whether it orients us towards awakening or a deeper slumber as the planet continues in the pains of birthing a new age. This past year has offered us plentiful opportunity to align with our authentic rather than false self and to discover who we are beyond the trappings of ego and identification. In the coming year we can apply what this process has taught us to the task of daily living and pull out all the stops to move our collective evolution of consciousness in the direction of wholeness and deep, refreshing renewal.

The Call of the Earth
At this moment in time we are more and more consciously confronted by the reality of climate change, global pollution, acidification of the oceans, massive destruction of forests and wetlands and other natural habitat. All of it is contributing to the first man-made mass extinction of species that the planet has suffered, caused by industrialization and our addiction to a materialistic lifestyle. And we are all responsible—just by traveling in a car or a plane, we are actively participating in an ecologically destructive culture.
We all need to take responsibility for this pressing predicament. And although many individuals and groups have responded, little has really changed in substance on a collective, governmental level since the 2009 Copenhagen summit showed us putting short-term economic growth before the real and lasting concerns of carbon emissions and climate change.
Moreover, our materialistic culture has co-opted the concept of sustainability to its own ends. Our collective objective now appears to be to sustain our materialistic, energy-intensive way of life, rather than to sustain the ecosystem and its diversity of inhabitants. There are few signs that the world is prepared to give up its materialist pleasures.
And while many people are working to try to counter this imbalance, most are approaching it with the very same mind-set that has created this predicament. Before we can begin to redeem this crisis, we need to go to the root of our present paradigm—our sense of separation from our environment, the lack of awareness that we are all a part of one interdependent living organism that is our planet. This can be traced to the birth of the scientific era in the Age of Enlightenment and the emergence of Newtonian physics, in which humans were seen as separate from the physical world, which in turn was considered as unfeeling matter, a clockwork mechanism whose workings it was our right and duty to understand and control. While this attitude has given us the developments of science and technology, it has severed us from any relationship to the environment as a living whole of whose cycles we are a part. We have lost and entirely forgotten any spiritual relationship to life and the planet, a central reality to other cultures for millennia.(1) Where for indigenous peoples the world was a sacred, interconnected living whole that cares for us and for which we in turn need to care—our Mother the Earth—for our Western culture it became something to exploit.
And as we move into a global age, it is these Western materialistic values that are dominating more and more of our planet. Our increasingly global consumer-driven civilization is amplifying our exploitation and the resulting pollution to an unsustainable level. As the world grows more and more out of balance, we urgently need to regain a relationship with the planet based upon the understanding of the world as a sacred living whole, and to reclaim a consciousness that is centered in that understanding. Only if we redeem the problem at its root can we hope to heal and come back into balance with our environment. Would we rape and pillage the physical world if we understood and respected its sacred nature?
But there is an even deeper, and somewhat darker, side to our forgetfulness of the sacred within creation. When our monotheistic religions placed God in heaven they banished the many gods and goddesses of the Earth, of its rivers and mountains. We forgot the ancient wisdom contained in our understanding of the sacred in creation—its rhythms, its meaningful magic. For example, when early Christianity banished paganism and cut down its sacred groves, they forgot about nature devas, the powerful spirits and entities within nature, who understand the deeper patterns and properties of the natural world. Now how can we even begin the work of healing the natural world, of clearing out its toxins and pollutants, of bringing it back into balance, if we do not consciously work with these forces within nature? Nature is not unfeeling matter; it is full of invisible forces with their own intelligence and deep knowing. We need to reacknowledge the existence of the spiritual world within creation if we are even to begin the real work of bringing the world back into balance. Only then can we regain the wisdom of the shamans who understood how to communicate and work together with the spirit world.(2)
There has been a recent resurgence in spirituality in the West, what some would call an “awakening.” In the last few decades we have been made aware of previously hidden or esoteric techniques and practices to access the spiritual dimension of our self—to reconnect with our soul. Many individuals have followed an inner calling to use these practices and teachings to make a relationship with their soul or spiritual nature. Yet we still have little understanding of the spiritual dimension within the natural world, or of how our individual soul relates to the larger dimension of the world soul (what the ancients called the anima mundi). We have mostly lost the knowledge of the spiritual practices and rituals that keep the balance in the inner and outer worlds; we have even forgotten that such practices are needed. Instead we are caught within a contemporary consciousness that focuses on the individual self, no longer even aware of our deep bond to the sacred within creation.
We may have begun to reclaim an understanding of how to relate to our own soul and experienced the meaning and sense of purpose that can come into our life through this relationship. We may even be drawn to spiritual teachings and practices that can help us in this work, that take us beneath the surface of our life into the deeper dimensions of our own being and give us access to the spirit world. Those who have begun to make this journey feel and know the deep nourishment, the guidance that this can bring. We also may have become aware of a certain poverty in our daily life that results from our forgetting this inner reality, the absence of a certain joy or central note. But we have little awareness of the relationship between our individual soul and the world soul. We have forgotten the ancient teaching that says that the individual is the microcosm of the whole, the lesser Adam in relation to the greater Adam that is the whole of creation. We have lost the basic understanding of the ways our spiritual awareness, or our forgetfulness, affects the whole—of the subtle but powerful relationship between human consciousness and our inner and outer environment.
While there may be a growing awareness that the world forms a single living being—what has been called the Gaia principle—we don’t really understand that this being is also nourished by its soul, the anima mundi—or that we are a part of it, part of a much larger living, sacred being. Sadly, we remain cut off, isolated from this spiritual dimension of life itself. We have forgotten how to nourish or be nourished by the soul of the world…. (3)
How do we respond to such a hidden crisis? How can we awaken from our dream of forgetfulness? If we have a sense that something deep within our being, and within the being of the world, is out of balance, we can listen. We then may hear the cry of the world, its call to us. This is not just the call of creation as its physical ecosystem is being destroyed, but the cry of the world soul, the anguish of the anima mundi as it feels its sacred substance being depleted, its light going out.
And from hearing this cry we might begin to awaken, to sense a lack of the sacred, of this primal substance that gives meaning to all of life. We will each hear this cry in our own way, as it touches our own soul, but what matters is how we respond—whether we turn away, returning to our life of distractions, or whether we dare to follow the call and sense what it is telling us. Then, for an instant, we might catch a fragrance that is vanishing, a color that is fading. We might begin to notice what is happening.
In the outer world the signs are all around us. Daily we see the physical signs of our ecological crisis: the glaciers melting, the floods and droughts. We may also sense the deep anxiety of a civilization that has lost its way, forgotten its primal connection to the sacred that alone can give real meaning. If we are to take real responsibility for our present predicament we need to respond both outwardly and inwardly. We need to work to heal both the body and the soul of the world.
The first step is always to recognize what is happening. We can no longer afford to be blinkered by the surface values of our materialistic culture. Just as real sustainability embraces the biodiversity of the whole planet, it also includes the sacred within creation. We need to relearn the wisdom of listening to life, feeling its heartbeat, sensing its soul. But first there is a pressing need to reconnect matter and spirit. All of life is sacred, every breath and every stone. This is one of the great secrets of oneness—everything is included. Within our heart and soul we can reconnect with our primal knowing that the Divine is present in everything.
We cannot return to the simplicity of an indigenous lifestyle, but we can become aware that what we do and how we are at an individual level affects the global environment, both outer and inner. We can learn how to live in a more sustainable way, not to be drawn into unnecessary materialism. We can also work to heal the spiritual imbalance in the world. Our individual conscious awareness of the sacred within creation reconnects the split between spirit and matter within our own soul and also within the soul of the world: we are part of the spiritual body of the Earth more than we know.
We will each have our own way of making this offering. There is, for example, a simple prayer for the Earth: the act of placing the world as a living being within our hearts when we inwardly remember the Divine. We become aware in our hearts of the sorrow and suffering of the world, and ask that divine love and healing flow where needed. And through our prayers the power of the Divine will help us and help the world—help to bring the Earth back into balance. We need to remember that the power of the Divine is more than that of all the global corporations that continue to make the world a wasteland, even more than the global forces of consumerism that demand the lifeblood of the planet. We need to reawaken to the power of love in the world.
Sometimes it is easier to feel this connection when we feel the earth in our hands, when we work in the garden tending our flowers or vegetables. Or when we cook, preparing the vegetables that the earth has given us, mixing in the herbs and spices that provide flavor. Making love, as we share our body and bliss with our lover, we may feel the tenderness and power of creation, how a single spark can give birth. Then our lovemaking can be an offering to life itself, a fully felt remembrance of the ecstasy of creation.
The divine oneness of life is within and all around us. Sometimes walking alone in nature we can feel its heartbeat and its wonder, and our steps become steps of remembrance. The simple practice of “walking in a sacred manner”—in which with every step we take we feel the connection with the sacred Earth—is one way to reconnect with the living spirit of the Earth.
There are so many ways to reconnect with the sacred within creation, to listen within and include the Earth in our spiritual practice and daily life. When we hear the morning chorus of birds, we may sense that deeper joy of life and awake to its divine nature; at night the stars can remind us of what is infinite and eternal within us and within the world. Watching the simple wonder of a dawn or a sunset can be an offering in itself. Whatever way we are drawn to wonder, to recognize the sacred, what matters is always the attitude we bring to this intimate exchange. It is through the heart that a real connection is made, even if we first make it in our feet or hands. Do we really feel our self as a part of this beautiful and suffering planet, do we sense its need? Then this connection comes alive, a living stream that flows from our heart as it embraces all of life. Then every step, every touch, will be a prayer for the Earth, a remembrance of what is sacred.
Our present ecological crisis is calling to us and it is for each of us to respond. This crisis is not a problem to be solved, because the world is not a problem but a living being in a state of dangerous imbalance and deep distress. This distress belongs to its body and soul, and as the voices in this book show, there are different ways we can respond to this calling. What matters is how through our own response we reconnect to what is sacred, and return to a sense of deep belonging, here in this place of wonder we call the Earth.
There is action to be taken in the outer world, but it must be action that comes from a reconnection with the sacred—otherwise we will just be reconstellating the patterns that have created this imbalance. And there is work to be done within our hearts and souls, the foundational work of healing the soul of the world, of replenishing the spiritual substance of creation—of bringing the healing power of divine love and remembrance where it is most needed. The crisis we face now is dire, but it is also an opportunity for humanity to reclaim its role as guardian of the planet, to take responsibility for the wonder and mystery of this living, sacred world.
Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, a 13 year old indigenous environmental activist from Boulder, Colorado, came into the world through the Aztec culture on his father’s side, and environmental activism on his mother’s side. His name was chosen by Aztec elders of Mexico based on the cosmology of the Aztec calendar and given to him when he was six weeks old in the Black Hills of South Dakota by elders Arvol Looking Horse and Xolotl Martinez. Xiuhtezcatl has been participating in ceremonies and Aztec dancing since he could walk, and is very connected with his culture. He grew up learning to respect and care for the Earth and all life upon it.
His deep connection with the Earth inspired him to become a voice for protecting the Earth at a young age, giving his first speech at a climate change rally when he was six years old (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6PrMybQzyQ).
He has remained vigilant in his work as he has watched the trees and forests he loves die from beetle infestation, eco-systems collapse, and species disappear, which are a direct result of our environmental and climate crises.
Xiuhtezcatl is the youth director of Earth Guardians, a non-profit environmental organization that is committed to protecting the water, air, earth, and atmosphere. He has organized many rallies, actions, demonstrations and events, and has spoken globally on many issues. Projects include organizing the largest US iMatter March in Denver in the spring of 2010 with over 2,000 young people.
Xiuhtezcatl has worked with Boulder City Council members, County Commissioners, senators and congresspeople, and has collaborated with over 50 environmental organizations. He has led and participated in many victories including getting pesticides out of Boulder’s city parks, achieving a fee for plastic bags, and containment of coal ash.
He is currently working on helping fight for a statewide ban on fracking. He gives presentations on fracking in schools and at conferences nationally, and also has developed and shown a presentation called EARTH, teaching about practical changes all people can make to insure future generations a healthy habitable planet. His work on climate change has led him to become a youth plaintiff against the state of Colorado, and a federal plaintiff against the United States, filing law suits for not protecting the atmosphere.
In May, 2012, he went to Washington DC to meet with representatives from all three branches of government, working to garner support for the lawsuits and a Climate Recovery Plan based on NASA scientist James Hansen’s and Bill McKibben’s work. Over 80 members of Congress and the Congressional Progressive Caucus publicly supported the youth delegation.
Xiuhtezcatl was one of the youngest speakers at the Rio+20 United Nations Summit in Rio Brazil in June 2012. He spoke on UN panels and at many of the UN side events. He also had the honor of lighting the sacred fire with indigenous elders from Brazil (view at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cd773X7erys).
Frustrated by the inaction of world leaders, he and two other young people intervened in the UN meetings so that the voices of children would be heard (view at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xp-spJD3Bxc).
He is traveling and initiating International Earth Guardian Crews around the globe to fulfill the Earth Guardian mission, and these groups are now going strong in Africa, India, Australia, Brazil and Europe. He is regularly called upon to provide the youth perspective and voice on issues at conferences locally, nationally, and globally, bringing his message of hope, inspiration and the importance of acting now to avoid further damage to ecosystems.
Xiuhtezcatl is also a piano composer and has recorded his first album called “Journey”. His music was used in “Trust Colorado”, a short documentary featuring Xiuhtezcatl and filmed by Peter Gabriel’s organization, Witness. It won 2012 Best Environmental Film Documentary of the Year and is being shown in 100 cities world-wide. The documentary can be seen at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xr-GUgpic5E
Xiuhtezcatl also writes and performs original message-driven rap music to inspire and educate his peers through performances. His group “Voice of Youth” filmed their first music video called: “Live as if our Future Matters”(view at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANrxvmHUuV0). He will be releasing his new music video “Be the Change” produced and filmed by HBO in December 2013.
Xiuhtezcatl continues to inspire youth and adults alike, encouraging people everywhere to become more aware and educated, and to work together to face the threats to our future from our environmental and climate crises. Xiuhtezcatl is a living example of one of his heroes, Mahatma Gandhi, and he truly reflects the change that he wants to see in the world.

The Great Realignment – Gaia’s Dramatic Healing
Submitted by Open on 4 February, 2014 – 07:25
In The Great Realignment (part 1), I spoke of how the balance of life on Earth has become so far out of harmony with nature, that a corrective force of monumental proportions was now gathering in strength to shatter the structures that have so consumed and controlled other sentient life. As the underlying energetic matrix is unraveling, the departing clouds will reveal the new paradigm, in a higher vibrational existence. However, we can expect it to be neither pretty nor easy. Our planet is entering the crucible of profound catalytic healing. The fire-walk of spiritual mastery is now unfolding before us and we must surrender into it to truly thrive…
In my heart I feel deeply saddened yet strongly aligned in suggesting that the Earth’s Biosphere upon which mankind depends is now breaking down. If it’s not accelerating climate change, GMO toxification, top soil erosion, chemtrail heavy metal pollution or the rapidly acidifying oceans (at their fastest rate for over 300 million years), then there’s something now much bigger looming on the horizon… in a word, Fukushima.
What do we know exactly?
We now know that Tepco (owners of the Daiichi plant) and some of the world’s ‘leadership’ were lying to us. Immediately following the initial accident, there was catastrophic melt down of at least three nuclear reactors, through which over 300 tonnes of ground water washes into the Pacific every day. And reactor 4, where around 1500 fuel rods ‘hang by a thread’, could collapse at any moment if there was any other significant tremor or shock in the area. What we’re looking at here, is an ‘Extinction Level Event’ in no uncertain terms. It’s no longer a question of if it’s going to affect the world population, but when and how?
These are early days of course, but nevertheless, I feel compelled in my heart to speak so strongly. I believe it’s vitally important that evolving people really come to terms with what is happening here. We’ve been shown throughout history, that whenever a life form moves out of balance with the natural harmony, then the universe answers with a corrective force in equal measure. And who can now deny just how out of alignment society has become? (see the world population explosion on the chart in this first article…The Great Realignment (part 1))
So whilst I’m deeply saddened yes by what I now feel is inevitable, I also feel to willingly accept the corrective Great Realignment of energy on the planet that I feel is now beginning to take place. Although an unpalatable message, what I see humanity now facing is a ‘cleansing’ of the Earth’s surface of the old consciousness providing a ‘fallow’ period of vitally required healing time for Gaia. It’s what I’m sure the Hopi Elders saw when they spoke of “The Great Purification”. However, if we can come to embrace our manifestation with grace, these building circumstances could well catalyse the emergence of a new, Spiritual Mastery – a New Humanity.
Five Gateways and the Significance of Synchronicity
Back in 2009 we felt compelled to produce a free documentary detailing what we feel to be the Five Key Expansions of consciousness on route to Enlightenment and Ascension. In it we spoke of there being currently two worlds….
“We’re not living in one world but two. The lower world is based on a system of inequity and injustice. It’s a world of have and have not, of rich and poor, profit and loss, winner and loser. It’s an out-dated system long past its sell-by-date. And yet there’s another world, a truly beautiful world of interconnectivity with all. It’s where all life is cherished and respected. It’s where we receive with one hand and with the other, give in equal measure. It’s about spiritual enrichment and continued human evolution.
Now these two worlds are beginning to separate. The energy is moving from the old world and into the new. And as that energy moves, the old systems, the old structures are fracturing and breaking apart. It’s that sense of liberation and freedom which is being released from that. And as the energy moves into the higher paradigm, we’re going to see those old systems crumbling and cracking all around us. One world has a future and the other does not.”
What we didn’t know were the circumstances of how that unraveling might come about.
We were due to release the film early in March 2011 – right at the time the Tsunami struck Fukushima. In fact we felt to delay for a week as a sign of respect. As I look back now, I believe in my heart the event to mean an important synchronicity. Just as the Titanic was a message from the synchronistic mother tongue of the universe where everything happens with deeper purpose, I believe so too is this an important sign. If we can accept it as a tremendous catalyst to simply let go, turn inwards and regain alignment with the divine, then we will have a future. I believe that’s the significance of the synchronicity.
Watch the full documentary freely here…5GATEWAYS.
Immanent collapse of the global financial system?
Fukushima could well turn out to be the ‘trip switch’ that causes a domino affect right across the planet. It could for example spark a melt down in the financial markets which are already teetering on the brink of debt fueled implosion.
Why is that a possibility?
The Energetic Matrix which has locked the consciousness of humanity into this synthetic society is unraveling. Consequently more and more people see that the numbers simply don’t make sense (like for example in the land of the American Dream where now some 49 million people are in need of food stamps to sustain them). And since everything is of consciousness, as more and more people question, that vibration of incredulity concerning the future sustainability and rightness of the current system is rippling outwards like the gathering Tsunami for which Fukushima was such a powerful metaphor.
The vast majority of people in society have not a clue how indebted most governments are. If you take Britain (the country I live in), when you add up private debt with government public debt and that of future commitments, our indebtedness is 900% the size of our economy! Only two other countries have ever experienced such indebtedness – Argentina, once a rich country that collapsed into practically a third world nation, and the Weimar republic in Germany in the 1920’s, when hyper inflation devalued their currency so much, it was cheaper to paper your walls with bank notes rather than wall paper!
And Britain is not alone. America, many of the European countries and even the cheap plastic global exporter China are now hugely in debt too. They are all held afloat merely due to historically low interest rates, low inflation because of ever cheaper sweat shop industries and the relentless exploitation of energy. But all that is soon to change. At the beginning of 2014, I could feel huge surges of catalytic energy sweeping into confront this raptor consciousness that is riding roughshod over our Earth. Expect a major impact somewhere in the world during 2014 and over the next couple of years.
Ultimately, when this collapse comes, it’s unlikely to be pretty, but nevertheless we manifested it. Why?
You’re always disempowered when you blame circumstances beyond yourself
What we really need to get our heads and our hearts around, especially when talking about the ‘powers-that-be’ or the so called ‘One Percent’, is it’s never about “them out there”. It’s not “their fault”. What needs to be grasped is that the One Percent are merely the manifestation of our own internal sense of lack, lack of personal responsibility, personal sovereignty, personal culpability and acceptance of the capitalistic nightmare by our acquiescence to the Industrial Military Complex.
Okay. I’m being a bit harsh here. It’s because I’m trying to get a point across. You can’t blame anyone for lack of consciousness when the name of the game is ever increasing evolution from lower levels of consciousness. But what mainstream spirituality needs to realise quickly, is that you’re always disempowered when you blame people or circumstances beyond yourself for your experience of life – and as far as I can tell, that’s definitely a trend within the spiritual mainstream.
Consider it this way: whenever you feel to blame someone for what they are doing to you or the world, you could instead see it as a reflection of your own behaviour and ask “how can I unravel my similar distortions into a more highly evolved condition of being?” I guarantee you, as long as you look hard enough, you will always find something in that particular area that you can improve upon. If enough people changed their behaviours and habits right now (and it wouldn’t have to be many), the powers-that-be would quickly topple.
So at the moment, for a short while longer, we have a bit of a stalemate. Everybody who’s half awake knows that change has to come, but most are waiting for someone else to take the first step.
Who will take the first step?
That the situation is unbalanced, unraveling strongly under the surface and will change the face of the world is certain. But what will likely precipitate that change? I’d say one of three things are most likely to happen next…
Realising their rapidly dwindling grasp on power, and their increasing inability to plug the holes in the dyke (both of the biosphere and the economy), the powers-that-be will stage one or more false flag events giving them the excuse to introduce various levels of increased state control as security for new draconian reshaping of the already fragmenting economies. They need an excuse to somehow write off the debt, nationalise finance, devalue fiat currencies and increase the cost of commodities beyond artificially deflated, petro-dollar values.
A groundswell of rising frustration by some and expanding consciousness by others, initiates various national revolutions within society that take back personal responsibility, forming both government and finance by the people for the people, based on more sustainable community living, which become the launching grounds for a wider spiritual evolutionary leap.
Both of the above are pre-empted by Gaia. Working away in the background with the infinite patience of a grand deity and the vast cosmic support of benevolence, she gently but firmly rocks the unstable foundations until the gathering energy unleashes a domino effect through world events, causing economies to collapse and ultimately unraveling the matrix in alignment with the movement to a higher vibrational existence.
None of these are going to be pretty, but certainly taking back personal responsibility for our choices and actions is going to be in alignment with the overall realigning flow. Those choices will have a future. Anything else is sure to be short lived.
Learning to Walk the Path of our higher Spirituality (free mini documentary) is now utterly essential. To truly succeed in this situation, we must let nothing stand in its way.
Realism, pragmatism and optimism
This imminent collapse will not be the end of it. It will be only the first step. Undoubtedly society will reshape and reform either with greater state control or greater conscious alignment, but whatever shape that looks like, then we have to contend with the decimation of the earth’s biosphere and the escalating impact that’s going to have. We’re going to be challenged on the availability of clean resource, food, water and energy like most in society could hardly conceive.
To some I know they will say I’m being pessimistic and fear mongering, but I don’t believe I am. Peel the veils from your eyes and you must surely see it too.
I consider myself a realist, a pragmatist and an optimist. Yes, an optimist. Why so? Because I have been one of those fortunate enough to realise that one life must be in alignment with all life. And if not, then no life is served, including my own. In short, I would gladly sacrifice my own physical life if that meant bringing greater harmony to the overall situation. We must all now try to look through the eyes of selflessness. If we can truly let go, we become the immortal One Self as an experience, not just a theory.
In which case, struggle ends. It can be an amazing sense of relief and empowerment.
Drawn into the cauldron of Spiritual Mastery
It’s not enough just to simply believe in our connectedness and immortality at the level of mind. We have to be prepared to test and experience it in every single moment through the essence of soul. If you’re short of food what does hunger do to your behaviour? If times are tough, do you identify and get stressed? Do you worry about what is to come? Are you afraid of what will happen to your family and kids? All are tests as to the degree you know your interconnectivity and immortality. If we’re all one, how can you and another ever be separated? Even by death? So humanity is now being drawn into this cauldron of spiritual mastery.
How do we come safely out the other side?
First we must realise that we need this level of confrontation. We need this level of breakdown and calamity. Why so? Because when you look back through the history of humanity at all the wars, violence, disharmony, control, manipulation and lack of trust, the vast majority of people are containing the effects of this within their karma – inside their causal body. And by that, I mean their causal body is storing this negative energy caused by attachment and identification to the past events. Here’s the paradox then that some have not yet fully grasped…
Humanity is creating this cauldron of calamitous change because of repressed and unprocessed karma, which by the Law of Attraction, is now manifesting an external mirror (see Law of Attraction Unveiled).
So as things currently stand, the changes are going to be tumultuous. But whatever may befall you, try to see every single circumstance and event as an opportunity to learn, evolve and grow as a being. The clearer and stronger the mirror, the easier if becomes to see your true self in it and act accordingly. There will ultimately no room for denial. Consider every situation not in terms of the outcome your ego would like, but the incredible possibility your spirit can become.
Only do things because there’s a “rightness” to them
Many people are currently motivated by glorious ideas of coming together in sustainable community: low impact housing, finance based on equitable exchange, renewable energies, a soft footprint on the Earth. These are extremely commendable attributes to unfold. They too are a wonderful mirror and vehicle for higher self expression. And that’s how I believe we need to see them – as “Arcs” for spiritual mastery and Ascension. So let’s not get attached to their longevity. Personally I see them as bridges into the Higher Paradigm.
In part 3 of this series I’ll go on to consider how we can align with this gathering flow more accurately. In the meantime, here’s a video to share by the Native American “Red Crow”. What I’ve been given to call “The Great Realignment” the Hopi called “The Great Purification”. What I love most, is the cool, collectedness in his ancient, oceanic eyes when he speaks of there being ‘nothing to fear’…

“The Pyramid Code” Episode 2 – High Level Technology
Documentary series “The Pyramid Code” examines evidence that most of the ancient megalithic monuments were strategically placed to harness the energy of telluric currents, or “ley lines”.
It is a mystery how supposedly primitive peoples could have detected and mapped out these ley lines with such precision, and on such a large, global scale. It suggests an ability to examine the Earth from above. Ancient alien theorists suggest extra-terrestrial visitors shared this knowledge with pre-deluvian mankind*.
*This is not suggested in this documentary, they stay away from the alien part of it.
JULIAN ROSE turns a page in history with this paradigm shifting 2 hour show. I first discovered Julian’s brilliant writing through several articles. the first being “Reverse Engineering the Illuminati Mindset”. Another is “Phoenix Rising”. On his website, a guest author wrote an excellent activist post, which are all on his website at the link below:
Learning from indigenous wisdom and knowledge — To change society a cultural revolution in activism is needed — by R. Teichmann
When I discovered he was also largely responsible for forming a united group that has successfully banned GMO’s in Poland, I knew this was going to be a ground breaking moment. We were deeply involved with the real problems facing humanity at the end of the first hour, so we continued recording for a 2nd hour “off the air”. This archive includes the second hour which could be called, Zany Unplugged, Unchained and Uncensored! This is a show that talks about “he who cannot be named”. Don’t miss this one and be prepared for some shocks and a few expletives during both hours! It’s a show that’s “off the charts!” There is a wealth of information on his website, http://www.julianrose.info.
If you are part of the growing movement of awakened beings uniting in consciousness to “throw the bums out”, be they earth bound, internal, space bound or inter-dimensional, please listen and if you are inpsired, make this show go VIRAL!
Best, Zany Mystic
Julian is President of the International Coalition to Protect the Polish Countryside, successfully banning GMOs in “GMO Free Zones”.
In 2000 Julian was invited to become a co-director of the International Coalition to Protect the Polish Countryside, co-launching a highly successful ‘Campaign for a GMO Free Poland’ as well as leading a high profile defense of peasant farmers whom he holds-up as the true guardians of biodiversity throughout the world. Regular listeners to BBC radio 4?s Framing To-Day will have heard Julian’s 2007 series of once monthly “Letters from Poland” passionately highlighting the crisis provoked by forcing ‘corporate globalization’ onto traditional family farming communities.
In “Changing Course For Life”, Julian Rose draws together all the strands of his highly diverse life experiences and, in a multidimensional vision of the future, calls for an uncompromising commitment to dynamic, decentralised community leadership as the chief vehicle for overcoming the dominant and life threatening Orwellian collusion between corporate greed and political ineptitude. Julian foresees this new beginning blossoming into a life-affirming process of humanistic and spiritual self realization.

Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy: A Soul Healing Integration for the New Earth
By: Suzanne Spooner
Moderator of Dolores Cannon’s Professional Forum, Practitioner of QHHT, and Creator of TAUK (The Art of Universal Knowing)
Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy (QHHT) is a process developed by Dolores Cannon. Dolores has been a hypnotherapist for nearly 50 years. She started with her husband Johnny to help people stop smoking and over-eating while he was stationed on a Naval base.
In 1968, while assisting a lady with over-eating, the client spontaneously went into a past-life regression. This was back before reincarnation was well understood in the West. There were no teachings on past-life regression, no New Age Movement, no study of metaphysics. She continued to work with this woman on five of her past lives, documented them and continued to explore this new frontier.
Over the next 50 years, Dolores would continue to expand her work as a hypnotherapist. She’s a true pioneer in learning about and reporting the multi-faceted, multi-layered experience of being human. She’s written over 17 books on some of her thousands of QHHT sessions. The books cover topics of Jesus & the Essenes, Nostradamus, UFO’s, ET’s and life on other planets, a series on The Convoluted Universe and the Three Waves of Volunteers.
Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy is a process or technique where a client is guided into a very deep level of hypnosis. We work in the Theta level where we all are naturally at least twice a day; once when we’re just waking up and once when we’re drifting off to sleep. This is where you are in the morning, before you open your eyes and can recall your dreams.
Prior to the actual one-on-one appointment with a QHHT practitioner (sessions must be done in person for a client’s well being), the client has written up a list of questions they want answered.
Typically, the list is divided into health & physical questions and life and personal questions. These questions can deal with physical issues that may be life-threatening or debilitating, family/relationship problems and general questions about life and our world that you have wondered about since you were young!
The ‘tour guide’ into this journey is your High Self (Dolores calls it the Subconscious). It’s the BIGGER you. The part of you that has been with you since the very beginning, when you left Source to experience everything. It has been with you every second of this lifetime, every lifetime and in between. It truly knows you better than you know yourself! It’s the part of you that remembers your completeness, your ability to heal and to understand.
Once in the QHHT session, the client and the practitioner talk for a while, getting to know one another and going over the list of questions the client has brought with them. The process of QHHT and how the day will unfold is explained and questions answered.
After this, the client lies down on a massage table, recliner or wherever they can relax and be comfortable. The practitioner will guide the client into the deep level of relaxation allowing the right brain to fire up and the left brain to recede. Dolores’ process is careful to be mindful of the client’s health, safety and well being on a physical, mental and spiritual level.
Some clients wonder if they can get their left brain, conscious mind, ego to quiet down and behave. In almost all cases this is possible. Some people may feel like they’re “making it up” as they start to see scenes of a past-life, for example.
I tell my clients that if they feel this to just let go and “make it up”. What I know for certain is when they take the power away from the ego (who wants to derail the session by placing this thought in the mind) and just go for it, the images and pictures get clearer and the information is easily retrieved. Most people will see images that may appear like viewing a movie or like in your dreams. Some people are more ‘aware’ of their surroundings or will have a knowing.
Your High Self is guiding you to the past lives, future lives, or other experiences in order to explain to you why things are the way they’re in your life right now. It’s taking you to where the issue originated from, usually in a past-life. With this understanding, you can have a global view of the issue and in most cases let it go or do what must be done to learn from it so that you can move on in a healthy way.
If we come from Source to experience everything, then you can be anything in a past-life. I’ve had clients who were the opposite gender, androgynous, bears, a horse, an eagle, water, a rock, a fairies, monks with secret knowledge, members of the Egyptian elite and about everything in between. No, not everyone is royalty or had an exciting life. Sometimes they’re shown a life of ease, to show them the balance of a difficult life this go around.
I’ve had clients be energy, part of an energy grid around Earth, formless, angels, and light. Every time, they’re shown a ‘story’ that helps explain their current life challenges. It’s all shown gently. Even traumatic scenes can be seen from an observer’s point of view, taking the client out of the physical or mental discomfort to ‘see’ it as if they were watching a movie.
One thing I’ve been doing lately, that has been very interesting, is guiding a client to their planning session, just prior to the current incarnation they’re experiencing now. Most people report being in a room, usually at a table. Around them are guides, angels, loved ones, their council. On the table may be scrolls, books, pages and even touch screens!
In this space the client learns what the original lessons and purpose of their life was and if there have been any revisions. They can find out why they picked their parents, partners and friends. They’re shown what they will learn from these people and what they’re teaching in return. I’ve seen decades of unhappy, unhealthy relationships explained in a way that has allowed the client to truly understand the circumstances and let go of years of debilitating sadness.
Once we get finished looking at the past lives or other experiences their High Self has picked for them, the real magic begins! I call forth the clients High Self to speak through the client, to use their voice to communicate verbally! The energy in the room amplifies and I am sitting next to my client doing a little happy dance for them.
Once the High Self is present in this way, and there is a specific way to know when this has occurred, I start off by asking it to explain why it chose to show the client the certain lives it did. If there were any loose strings in understanding, here’s where they get tied up in a pretty bow. It’s all explained.
I sometimes ask the High Self what It’s like to have the client’s voice to speak with. So many times there will be a long sigh and it will say, “It’s sooo nice! We’ve been trying to tell her this for sooooo long!” This part of you, by the way, is what gives you your feelings in your gut, your nudges, your epiphanies. Now it just has the tool of your voice and language to express itself.
I start asking the High Self to answer the client’s list of questions. We tend to start with the physical/health questions first. The High Self scans the body, explains the root cause of the issue, does repair, dissolves things, removes things.
In just about every case, the client’s physical issue began with a spiritual or energetic issue that was ignored by the client. This is seen with eye issues (what won’t they see or look at), throat issues (not speaking their truth), blood issues (low life force), issues with the knees, ankles and feet (not going forward with their life work) just to name a few. It’s always interesting to me, after hearing a client tell me about their cancer or other ailment, to hear what was going on in their life just prior to the onset of symptoms.
In most cases, the body is happy to repair and heal itself. I, as a practitioner am healing nothing. It’s the client doing the work on their own body. Now, the body is happy to retain this state of homeostasis as long as the client firmly believes that they’re powerful enough to heal themselves and maintain that health.
We talk a lot about this in their session. Likewise, if a client doesn’t believe they can do this, that they have to have someone else heal them, that they don’t deserve to be healed, well… The body is again happy to support that belief system too. The client’s symptoms will return.
I tell my clients if they’re smart enough to make their bodies sick, they certainly are smart enough to make their bodies healthy and whole. During this time the client might be aware of physical sensations in the body. They may feel warm or chilled, things shifting or energy coming in. The key is to remember how very big you are and how very much you are connected to the ALL.
We next will go though the client’s list of personal/life questions. If we haven’t heard yet, I will ask what the lessons and purpose of this life are. Again, the answers are given and explained so beautifully. Every once in a while the client’s High Self will say,”She KNOWS the answer to that!” And I will say, “I know she knows but it’s important for her to hear YOU explain it!” And they always do.
After we’ve answered their list of questions I ask for a final message for the client. They’re typically short and to the point. They say things like she is so loved and we’re so proud of the work she’s doing. We’re always with her and we hope she listens to us easier now.
And what if the client remembers nothing upon waking up? That can happen. Some people can recall almost everything, others nothing and most people in between. It feels very much like waking up from a lucid dream.
Every session is recorded for them. This actually is a very important element to the session. The client hears his or her own voice (their High Self) explaining why thing are the way they are. Hearing this coming from themselves is infinitely more powerful than hearing someone else tell them what’s wrong with them.
I stress to my clients to listen to their recording soon and often after a session. This allows the conscious mind to accept that the healing and understandings have been given which allows for a better outcome.
I’m sure some clients never listen to their recording. That’s ok. It then becomes an interesting experience. For those that help integrate the knowledge they tapped into though, a QHHT session is life transforming. As a practitioner, that is my hope for everyone that passes through my door.
I truly believe this lovely process of QHHT, developed by Dolores Cannon, is a way to assist people in remembering their birthright of being Divine, Holy Creators. We (at least until this newest generation gracing our planet) came into this human experience with blinders. Our memory was gone or forgotten of where we really come from.
We can feel like we’re all alone, muddling through this life for no good reason. This tool Of QHHT helps unlock the door to our memories and our individual and collective greatness as a current member of Humanity. It’s a soul healing integration to assist us into the New Earth.

Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy
One of my soul family, Ginger, flew in from Canada to perform these ceremonies with me. Our mission was to connect all waters within, on the surface of and in the atmosphere above Mother Earth, Gaia. We did this by using Sacred Geometry symbols placed in the waters and ceremonial focused intent with me holding the masculine energies and she the feminine. We connected all waters above on and below, and with help of the higher vibrational Manatee, Dolphins, Whales, as well as the Galactics, Angelic Realm, Ascended Masters and others who joined us, we established a “Rolling Vortex” as Mother Earth spins within a Merkaba we generated.
This can be visualized like a Cosmic Vaccuum Cleaner over Mother Earth as she spins pulling all lower vibrations, pollutants, negativity and so on off her to allow more light to and higher ascended(ing) vibrations to infuse all who come in contact with any and all water on this planet.
