Greetings and Salutations! One and All! I do hope the week has been a splendid one for you! We have had an amazing week so far and it’s still going! Jim Dreaver joins us tonight! 9pm MST on blogtalkradio.com/illuminationsoflight! He is simply fantastic! Jim is going to be talking about his books and his techniques tonight!

We wanted to share a bit about Jim in his own words…..

 

About Jim

Jim, a native of New Zealand, was on a spiritual journey for twenty years before finally waking up to his true nature. His teacher was European Advaita master Jean Klein. His gift is being able to quickly bring people into a state of presence, where they can experience the sense of freedom and love inside them. Jim, who now lives in Los Angeles after many years in northern California, has taught his work at a number of venues, including Esalen Institute.

In addition to his new book, Falling into Light, he is also the author of End Your Story, Begin Your Life, the revolutionary practice that sets you free; The Way of Harmony (Avon); a practical guide to integrating awakened consciousness into work, relationships, and daily life, and The Ultimate Cure: The Healing Energy Within You (Llewellyn), which focuses on accessing the deep spiritual energy that is the source of all healing.

During his time as a doctor of chiropractic, he also authored Somatic Technique: A Simplified Method of Releasing Chronically Tight Muscles and Enhancing Mind/Body Awareness.This illustrated manual continues to be popular with chiropractors, physical therapists, and massage therapists worldwide.

In the Introduction to End Your Story, Begin Your Life, he writes:

The teaching and the practice making up the heart of this book come directly out of my own experience as a seeker of truth. I was on a spiritual journey for twenty years, seeking enlightenment, or inner freedom.

Then, in the spring of 1995, my seeking came to an end when I finally realized my true nature. I have been at peace, free of conflict and suffering, ever since. If you want to know my story, the story of how I came to the understanding that I am not my story, you can read it in the Appendix at the end of this book…

I have written this book (because)… If you absorb the teaching in these pages, and learn to do the practice every time you experience emotional conflict, upset, or suffering, you will yourself awaken to freedom, to the inner peace that does not depend on circumstances, much, much quicker than I did. As an example of how this can happen, read Juliana Dahl’s story at the beginning of Chapter One. She is the mother of four children, and awakened to her true nature just three short years after we met…”

The teaching and the practice making up the heart of this book come directly out of my own experience as a seeker of truth. I was on a spiritual journey for twenty years, seeking enlightenment, or inner freedom. Then, in the spring of 1995, my seeking came to an end when I finally realized my true nature. I have been at peace, free of conflict and suffering, ever since. The main elements of my own story, the story of how I came to the understanding that I am not my story, are in this book…

If you absorb the teaching in these pages, and learn to do the practice every time you experience emotional conflict, upset, or suffering, you will yourself awaken to freedom, to the inner peace that does not depend on circumstances, much, much quicker than I did. As an example of how this can happen, read Juliana Dahl’s story at the beginning of Chapter One. She is the mother of four children, and awakened to her true nature just three short years after we met.

The teaching itself is simple. It is to grasp that while we are a story-telling people, the stories we tell come and go, they change, but we, in our essence, are always here. We, as the pure awareness that sees and knows are still here, still looking through our eyes, sensing with our body, feeling with our heart and gut. Realizing we are that which is always present, and not the thought or story, which is ever-changing, is to be awake and free.”

You are powerful beyong Measure

–—Marianne Williamson

it is our light not our darkness that most frightens us

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other

people won’t feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.

It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

Greetings and Salutations One and All! It’s been awhile since we have posted here! Glad to be home and have things back in order! This week we have a very special guest who we decided to keep a secret until the night of the show! But in honor of our guest we are going to dedicate this blog to explaining what an NLP Coach is and does! I myself only recently learned of this marvelous new technique and am very excited to discuss it on the show this week!

What is NLP?

Neuro Linguistic Programming is what it stands for. According to Wikipedia this is their definition:

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a controversial approach to psychotherapy and organizational change based on “a model of interpersonal communication chiefly concerned with the relationship between successful patterns of behaviour and the subjective experiences (esp. patterns of thought) underlying them” and “a system of alternative therapy based on this which seeks to educate people in self-awareness and effective communication, and to change their patterns of mental and emotional behaviour”.[1]

The co-founders, Richard Bandler and linguist John Grinder, claimed it would be instrumental in “finding ways to help people have better, fuller and richer lives”.[2] They coined the title to denote their belief in a connection between neurological processes (‘neuro’), language (‘linguistic’) and behavioral patterns that have been learned through experience (‘programming’) and that can be organized to achieve specific goals in life.[3][4][5]

NLP was originally promoted by its co-founders in the 1970s as an effective and rapid form of psychological therapy,[6][7][8] capable of addressing the full range of problems which psychologists are likely to encounter, such as phobias, depression, habit disorder, psychosomatic illnesses, and learning disorders.[9] It also espoused the potential for self-determination through overcoming learned limitations[10] and emphasized well-being and healthy functioning. Later, it was promoted as a “science of excellence”, derived from the study or “modeling”[11] of how successful or outstanding people in different fields obtain their results. It was claimed that these skills can be learned by anyone to improve their effectiveness both personally and professionally[12]

Despite its popularity,[13] NLP has been largely ignored by conventional social science because of issues of professional credibility[13] and insufficient empirical evidence to substantiate its models and claimed effectiveness.[14] It appears to have little impact on academic psychology, and limited impact on mainstream psychotherapy and counselling.[14] However, it had some influence among private psychotherapists, including hypnotherapists, to the extent that some claim to be trained in NLP and apply it to their practice. NLP had greater influence in management training, life coaching,[15] and the self-help industry.[16]”

Greetings and Salutations One and All! What a week it has been! Phew! As I write this blog today I am crrently in Sedona, AZ and on my way to CA tomorrow! I love traveling and meeting great new pople! and as it stands tonight we have an amazing guest on our show! Mr. K. Allen Kay! Keith is a amazing energy artist. He is an amazing guy and I am sure you are all going to be as blown away by his amazing talent as I was! Here is a bit more about Keith.


K. Allen Kay – Transformational Artist

I have been on a spiritual path most of my life, always seeking to understand the mysteries of life. I have studied religion, quantum physics, numerology, fractals, healing arts and esoteric wisdom. Several years ago I began to combine my spirituality and my graphic design which lead to creating Energy Mandalas. These beautiful images hold powerful intensions that can transform our thinking and reality.

I am a Transformational Artist, I create Quantum Fractal Energy Mandalas from clients numerology.

You will find an elegant blend of Art, Spirituality and Science on my site. Recent discoveries in the field of Quantum Physics have unlocked ancient mysteries and pierced the veil between spirituality and the world of science and physics.

I have taken the principles of Ancient Numerology, Color Therapy and movement and integrated them into Organic Fractals with complex algorithms to produce these Energy Mandalas.

Each Mandala has a meaning and intention woven into the complex patterns that make up these beautiful pieces of art work.

The Fractal Energy Mandalas are based on numerology an ancient science of vibrational Intention, every number is associated with a unique vibration and meaning (you can look up those meanings HERE and click “numbers” button.).

According to numerology our personality and lifestyle are influenced significantly by a series of numbers derived from our name at birth, our birth date and the name we use now. One of the most significant aspect is our Life Path Number this is calculated by simply adding the numbers in our birth date (4/17/1963 becomes 4+1+7+1+9+6+3=31) you then reduce the two digit number down by adding them together, except for 11, 22 and 33, these are master numbers and don’t get reduced. So, 31 becomes 3+1=4 with a life path of Four. Very simple, there are several other ways to add these numbers together, however this is the method I prefer.

I do provide a full numerology report (80-100 pages) with every Personal Fractal Energy Mandalas I create.

Greetings and Salutations One and All! I hope you all have had a wonderful week!

We are so excited and honored to have an amazing man joining our show tonight! Andrew D. Basiago!

Andrew has had the unusual experience of time travel and several visits to Mars. He has documented all of this and released a paper in 2008 outlining it all. The Discovery of Life on Mars.

He’s been interviewed multiple times on such shows as Coast to Coast AM and several others and his story is well documented on YouTube as well.

Here is a bit about our guest tonight…..

The team leader of Project Pegasus, Andrew D. Basiago, 48, is a lawyer, writer, and 21st century visionary.

Andy is an emerging figure in the Disclosure Movement, who is leading a campaign to lobby the United States government to disclose such controversial truths as the fact that Mars harbors life and that the United States has achieved “quantum access” to past and future events.

He has been identified as the first of two major planetary whistle blowers predicted by ALTA, the Web Bot project that analyzes the content of the World Wide Web to discern future trends.

Andy’s writings place him at the forefront of contemporary Mars research. His paper The Discovery of Life on Mars, published in 2008, was the first work to prove that Mars is an inhabited planet. After publishing his landmark paper, Andy founded the Mars Anomaly Research Society.

Andy is also one of America’s time travel pioneers. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, he was a child participant in the secret US time-space program, Project Pegasus.

He was the first American child to teleport and took part in probes to past and future events utilizing different forms of time travel then being researched and developed by DARPA.

For ten years, Andy has investigated his experiences in Project Pegasus on a quest to prove them and communicate them to others.

Soon, he will publish a tell-all book that will describe his awe-inspiring and terrifying experiences in Project Pegasus and the true story of the emergence of time travel in the US defense community 40 years ago.

Andy was born on September 18, 1961 in Morristown, New Jersey, the youngest of five children, and grew up in Northern New Jersey and Southern California.

A past member of Mensa, the high IQ society, Andy holds five academic degrees, including a BA in History from UCLA and a Master of Philosophy from the University of Cambridge.

While an undergraduate at UCLA, he became a journalist and protégé of editor Norman Cousins of the Saturday Review, who once compared him to Robert Hutchins and nominated him to be the Editor of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.

Andy was inspired by a meeting with the futurist Buckminster Fuller in 1981 to pursue a career in environmental policy. After their meeting, Fuller wrote: “Andrew Basiago’s integrity augurs well for humanity’s continuance in (the) Universe.”

He began his career writing articles about the urban environment for Los Angeles newspapers, national periodicals, and the Cousteau Society journal Calypso Log.

Andy studied environmental law at Northwestern School of Law of Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon, and then went on to design nature-friendly urban plans for cities in California and study environmental law with Professor Malcolm Grant at Cambridge.

His papers about the theory and practice of urban sustainability have been published in international, peer-reviewed journals in Australia, Britain, and the United States, cited widely, and placed in the environmental policy collections of university libraries.

Andy was admitted to the Washington State Bar Association in 1996.

A lawyer in private practice, he specializes in personal injury law while representing and collaborating with writers and filmmakers in the development of books, TV shows, and feature films with planetary and interplanetary themes.

Andy is on a crusade as a lawyer and activist to have the US government disclose its time travel secrets.

He believes that lobbying the US government to disclose its teleportation capability, so that teleportation can be adopted globally as the new form of civilian transport, is the most important environmental cause of our time.

Andy has named his campaign “Project Pegasus” after the secret US time travel program that he served in during his childhood as one of America’s first “chrononauts.”

About the better world society that he envisions, Andy stated:

“Imagine a world in which one could jump through Grand Central Teleport in New York City, travel through a vortal tunnel in the time-space continuum, and emerge several seconds later at Union Teleport in Los Angeles. Such a world has been possible since 1968, when teleportation was first achieved by DARPA’s Project Pegasus, only to be suppressed ever since as a military secret. When my quest, Project Pegasus, succeeds, such a world will emerge, and human beings linked by teleportation around the globe will proclaim that the time-space age has begun.”

Here are some of the YouTube clips from past interviews….

This is part one of 39 ….this was one of the first interviews

This next one is the interview with George Noory on Coast to Coast AM….

I do hope you will all join us for tonight’s show! 9pm MST blogtalkradio.com/illuminationsoflight and visit our website www.illuminationsoflight.com or visit ProjectPegasus.net for more information on Andrew’s work! See you tonight everyone!

In love n light,

Kimberly

Greetings and Salutations One and All! I hope you have all had a wonderful week this week! It’s been busy busy busy on my end hence less blog entries then usual! But it’s all good! Change is not always a bad thing! We are growing and loving the ride!

We have got an amazing guest this week! Our first musician! MICHAEL ON FIRE! Spirit brought this man to me late last year, I have followed his work since! He is ecclectic and real and combines old and new ways into the words and the infusions of his musical styles and instruments. Truly unique and spiritual it will absolutely touch your heart.

Here is a little bit about our guest…..

Michael on Fire

From the time he first picked up a guitar, at the age of 11, Michael on Fire, knew that his path and purpose was making music, and he has remained true to that calling, having lived his life as an original artist.

He grew up in Detroit, where, in the 1970s, his early band, Old Buck, was a frontrunner of Country Rock music. They quickly established themselves as a regional favorite and performed steadily on a circuit of clubs, colleges and festivals in Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Canada, with occasional coast-to-coast jaunts as well.

During that same time, Michael was hired on as an arranger, “song doctor” and studio musician for Groovesville Music, working at the historic United Sound Recording Studios with legendary music Producer Don Davis. Davis arranged for Old Buck to record with the renowned Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, which played on many of the most important rock, soul and country music records ever made.

After a stint touring with Jango Edwards and the Friends Roadshow (for whom he co-wrote the international hits “Bicycle Seat,” and “American Boys”) Michael then formed the popular progressive music group, Prismatic, which released a trio of records, and performed 350 days a year for five consecutive years, including performances at The Montreaux International Jazz Festival, and shows with some of the most brilliant artists working in the field of jazz and progressive music.

In the ‘80s, Michael relocated to Los Angeles, where he attracted many top-notch players into his band, and started performing under the name Michael on Fire – six nights a week, all original music. He quickly developed a fervent following, and the list of luminaries who regularly showed up at his performances reads like a music and entertainment Hall of Fame. His first record under the new moniker, Pre-Dawn Chronicles, was released on the MCR Music label, and was co-produced by Michael, Stephen Stills and Joe Vitale.

The live CD, Commanche Moon, which critics called a “folkish, bluesy, country, tribal, gypsy rock and roll,” followed and was named one of the Top 10 records of the year in an L.A. Times critic’s poll. Following the release of that record, Michael on Fire began a period of intense roadwork.

Performing sometimes in a full-band format, sometimes as a trio, and sometimes as a solo artist, Michael on Fire spent the next dozen years touring unendingly through every nook and cranny of the United States, in every kind of environment – from bars to beautiful theaters, private homes to major outdoor festivals, from the rowdy to the reverent, from playing in prisons to performing for the President of the United States. He released eight CDs, all of which expressed his musical vision and garnered critical acclaim.

Along the way, Michael has also created an extensive body of music for film, stage and television, and for the past 12 years his original instrumental holiday music has been the most played music during the holiday season on The Weather Channel.

On his newest CD, the artist, the dreamer, the lover, the fool, Michael successfully fuses the elements cherished and appreciated by his fervent following of friends and fans – soulful singing, penetrating lyrics, mysticism, storytelling, passionate delivery and outstanding musicianship – presented in a coherent and highly listenable artistic journey that makes apparent the soul – of the artist, the dreamer, the lover, the fool.

In Jan. 2010, The Ventura County Star (Ventura, CA) named his performance from Oct. 2009 as one of the Top Five Concerts of the Year (others named included: Paul McCartney, Brian Wilson, Paul Thorn and Steve Poltz.)

Michael on Fire is so good you’ll be searching for new adjectives to describe it. He’ll make you laugh, cry, see God and tap your feet – all at once.

– Bill Locey, The Los Angeles Times

Greetings and Salutations One and All! Tonight we are proud to present the one and only amazingly wonderful Oberon Zell Ravenheart! This man is truly a joy and you will only be blessed to listen to our show tonight at 9pm MST on blogtalkradio.com/illuminationsoflight. This blog entry will tell you alot more about this truly gifted and inspiring individual and what he’s done and who is he is. We hope that you will join us tonight!

Oberon Zell-Ravenheart is a true modern-day Wizard, and a leading Elder in the worldwide magickal community. Oberon is a modern “Renaissance Man:” a shaman, psychologist, metaphysician, naturalist, theologian, artist, sculptor, teacher, author, animal handler, explorer, showman. He also serves as an ordained Priest of Gaea (Mother Earth).

As a child, Oberon had a natural affinity for the creatures of Nature and spent much of his time alone in the woods. His early attunement to Nature helped to sharpen his natural psychic abilities, and he has worked with many animals—both wild and domestic—over the years. He was an introspective child who loved to read—particularly natural history, mythology, science fiction and fantasy. He went on to earn college degrees in sociology, anthropology, psychology, education and theology. He has worked as a Headstart counselor, school teacher, social psychologist, school counselor, college professor, artist, journalist, author and publisher.

Inspired by Robert A. Heinlein’s 1961 visionary science-fiction novel, Stranger in a Strange Land, Oberon co-founded the Church of All Worlds on April 7, 1962, incorporating it legally on March 4, 1968. He currently serves as Priest, Primate and President. Oberon is also a Priest in the Fellowship of Isis, and an initiate in several different Traditions of Witchcraft and Paganism. He has created and participated in many interfaith projects, including the Council of Themis, the Council of Earth Religions, the Covenant of the Goddess, the Universal Federation of Pagans, Bay Area Pagan Assemblies, the Dictionary Project, the Papal Apology Project, the Pagan Summit, the Grey Council, and the Sonoma County Pagan Network.

Oberon’s work has played a major role in the unity of the magickal community and in reclaiming the spiritual heritage of pre-Christian Europe. In his award-winning magazine, Green Egg (founded in 1968 and now online), Oberon was the first to adopt the words “Pagan” and “Neo-Pagan” to describe the newly emerging Nature religions of the 1960s. In 1970, he developed and published the thealogy of “deep ecology” which has become known as “The Gaea Thesis”—the premise that all life on Earth comprises a single vast living Being, known as “Mother Earth,” or “Gaea” to the ancient Greeks.

Oberon met and fell in love with his soulmate, Morning Glory, at the Gnostic Aquarian Festival in 1973, where he was a keynote speaker. They were married April 14, 1974, in a spectacular public Pagan ceremony. From 1977 to 1985 Oberon and Morning Glory lived in a 5,600-acre intentional community in the mountains of northern Califia, creating a rural homestead and magickal retreat center under the aegis of the Holy Order of Mother Earth (HOME). In February of 1979, they created and led a ritual with a number of Pagan leaders to celebrate the solar eclipse at a full-scale restoration of Stonehenge in Washington State, a transformative event attended by over 3,000 people.

Oberon and Morning Glory founded the Ecosophical Research Association (ERA) in 1977, and their research into arcane lore and legends resulted in the “Living Unicorn” project, begun in 1980 and culminating with the leasing of several of their authentic living Unicorns to the Ringling Bros./Barnum & Bailey Circus. Oberon and Morning Glory also traveled around the United States and Canada exhibiting their Unicorns at Renaissance Faires. Continuing to delve into fables and mysteries, in 1985, Oberon organized an ERA video diving expedition to Australia and New Guinea to solve the ages-old mystery of the Mermaid. These stories and more are told in full in his encyclopedic A Wizard’s Bestiary, with Ash “LeopardDancer” DeKirk (New Page, 2007)

In 1987 Oberon led a pilgrimage and research tour of ancient oracles and archaeological sites throughout Europe and the Mediterranean. Other legendary journeys have taken Oberon to Peru, Hawaii, Alaska, Costa Rico, and back to Australia. In 1999, he visited England for the final total solar eclipse of the Millennium, which he celebrated with local Pagans at an ancient stone circle in Cornwall.

Oberon is the author of many published articles on history, Gaian thealogy, magick, shamanism, mythology, anomalies, archaeology, cosmology, and related topics. He has been interviewed and quoted extensively in many newspapers, magazines, and books on New Age religious movements, magick and the occult. His best-selling first book, Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard (New Page, 2004) is an essential basic reference work that will continue to serve as a resource throughout the reader’s lifetime.

In 2004, Oberon created the online Grey School of Wizardry, of which he is Headmaster. Incorporated as a 501(c)(3) educational institution, the Grey School is non-sectarian, welcoming teachers and students of all faiths (and none at all). Accepting students of all ages over 11 (with some into their 70s), the Grey School offers a complete Apprenticeship program, in 16 Departments of magickal practice, at 7 levels, culminating in a Certificate of Journeyman Wizard. Around 340 classes are currently available, taught by a faculty of 30 highly-qualified teachers.

Greetings and Salutations One and All. I want to focus on getting along. It has been a very intense few weeks globally as we have been faced with facing our worst fears. From a very personal level to a very public level. The fact of the matter is, things are changing, they have to change the old programs will no longer work in the new frequencies. People rather then focusing on who’s fault it is, or what you are gonna do if they do this or that, why not focus on the solution? If you really stepped back and took a really hard look at the bigger picture, all of this hooplah over immigration is a bunch of fear that we will somehow lack. We are the richest country in the world and we are acting like it’s all going to be taken away! Even if it was, karmically we would deserve it, we are paying for the sins of our fathers and their fathers before them! They stole this land at gun point and by strong arm tactics! We forced them to sell by gunpoint!

Reality check, the bible says there will be an invasion silently by the yellow serpent. That would be the China, USSR union, now that the water way is opening up on the northern end of Canada, it makes landing soldiers very easy, and since Canada does not have a militia to guard those northern boarders we are setting ourselves up for invasion. So if you look at the bigger picture of why unionisation of all the countries on the Northern Continent is not such a crazy idea, and the bigger picture that most are not getting about WHY the change is taking place! Also if they really looked more closely, we have SOLD most of our land to foreign lands including our HARBORS to CHINA! Now the smart thing to do is take what America needed, an answer to healthcare issues, so we borrowed some ideas from our neighbors, if we were to join forces we then can protect that Northern boarder for Canada as our own and now Mexico, well we know that this country has a not so great government, and much depression and oppression this is why they flock here for jobs. We complain that we are paying for their healthcare, well we are also paying them sub minimum wage in many industries! Our red tape to immigrate in is a four year process for most folks! Now if we join with Mexico in a union type of deal we get their resources which are great, they get the freedom they seek to live well and we eliminate the issue of immigration and their plight for survival all at the same time. SOLUTIONS to the PROBLEMS! Not being hateful and bullying and rude and downright FOUL to our fellow human beings! WE ARE OUR BROTHER’S KEEPER! LOVE THY ENEMY! We are all humans, each has a right to be alive and happy and raise families and be educated and healed when sick and fed when hungry. DO I THINK THEY SHOULD DO THIS AND NOT WORK, NOOOOOO, SO WE CREATE SOMETHING NEW TO ALLOW THEM TO FEEL LIKE THEY CONTRIBUTED AND WE DO NOT FEEL RIPPED OFF! Like a community garden or child care in exchange for their food stamps and health care, there are solutions, we as a country are so focused on whose fault it all is, rather then just getting a grip, realizing that change is inevitable and begin to cooperate with each other and see what we can do together to find that solution that works for everyone! Unless you can show me the original deed from God and Mother Earth, this land belongs to everyone! We need to move from seperatism to cooperation and tolerance. Stop the hateful words and thoughts,  there is no excuse for being so ugly to each other. Even if you do not agree with policy, you still have to respect the office of president. We look like childish fools talking badly about our government to the rest of the world! All we can do is complain and blame! We all allowed it to get to this state! We are all responsible for this problem together! OUR APATHY AS A COUNTRY is what brought us to this point! OUR GREED AS A NATION is what brought us to this point! Stop complaining and start being a part of the solution instead of the problem!

We do not NEED OIL TO PROVIDE ENERGY FOR OUR HOMES AND BUSINESSES! We have had the knowledge and the ability to produce other means of energy and transportation! Greed is locking that down and keeping the people from growing. We are making strides in the right direction towards this! This oil deal was a warning about what our drilling is doing! Stop the madness! Find the common good in each other instead of the differences that give you a false sense of righteousness! That is your own ego speaking! Find the good in things and people, find the solutions when problems arise! When you point one finger there are three pointing at YOU! Hitler thought he was right too! Did it make it true??

I will be putting some wonderful solution ideas in my next blog for our energy problems. There are some truly amazing new products out there that would resolve a great deal of today’s issues and keep us from having to drill for more oil. The planet needs the oil to lubricate our lands, we keep draining her blood and we are going to have major arthritic problems with the land masses later on, translating to more violent earthquakes for example and moving of methane gases as we have seen recently.

Step out of the small thinking people of Earth. Step outside of yourself and be the adults and see the bigger pictures, come from love not fear or greed or control. No one is better then another, we are all equal in the playing field of Earth. We are brothers and sisters in the bigger scale. We need to learn how  to share and get along, agree to disagree, but do with respect and civility. Remember your manners and the Golden Rule, treat others how you would want to be treated, all the rest falls into place!It begins with the one in the mirror. It’s personal. If we look at our own reactions to things and why we may feel upset and get  to the core of it, you will see that I have been speaking truth. We speak of spiritualism, we need to walk our talk. This is a time of great tests for all of us. Remain balanced and fair. See things from all sides. Choose wisely your perceptions and thoughts. Be the example of how it can work, instead of contributing  the problem by bringing more energy to it and feeding it with more negativity. See the best possible outcome or solution for all concerned instead. Ask and thank for the solutions to be made clear. Getting mad only makes it worse, makes everyone feel bad, at least being a part of the solution by focusing on that you have contributed to it being resolved more quickly. How do we want our new world to look? How do we want to teach our future generations to behave? What example do we want to set for our communities and friends and families?? How do you really want to be seen? A follower? A leader? Or do NOTHING worst of all and just let it happen to you and complain about it later???  It’s all up to us. We have the ability to change those answers. To make what we want and what is line up. All it takes is action and changing your mind. Think about that! I love you guys! I truly do! I believe that humanity can have an epiphany and turn it around for the good! Perhaps that is idealistic to some, but I have seen miracles happen before, why stop believing in them now? !!

Make it a safe and sane weekend everyone! Summer is officially here! Whoot!  Find some joy and spread it around! Love and light to One and All! Until next time, this is The Angel!
