          We are honored to have the amazing Nancy Brown Joining us to talk about her passion, her life, her mission. Full Moon Farm is an organization dedicated to the well being of the wolfdog (wolf hybrid). Situated on 17 beautiful mountain acres in Black Mountain, NC, we operate as a federally recognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization for abused and refused wolfdogs who find themselves in need of love, shelter, and care through no fault of their own.

         Full Moon Farm provides a safe haven for animals that cannot be placed into homes for the rest of their lives. Their rescued wolfdogs come from animal control agencies, closed breeding situations and occasionally, an owner in crisis. They evaluate each animal upon intake and work with them at their level of comfort. Some animals are “hands off” and they respect their choice, as well as that of the animals that crave human interaction. Their goal is to enrich the lives of the residents, allowing them to reach their highest potential. Support by donation or sponsorship makes that task possible. Though they may be abused or neglected, homeless because of death or divorce, they are all God’s Creatures and worthy of a lifetime of respect. Don’t miss this amazing woman and the beautiful and awsome animals that she dedicates herself to rescue hear her inspiring story this Tuesday on http://www. BlogTalkRadio.com/Illuminationsoflight at 8pmPST, 9PMST

Greetings and Salutations One and All! It has been an amazing time of change and rebirth. Many people’s lives have changed, and in the immediate it looks bleak but there is a rainbow after every storm.  How we choose to see the challenges and they are many, is how we will weather that storm and the aftermath from it. It is for sure one of the most difficult challenges in life when your entire world changes in a matter of moments, or hours.  The good news is that just as quickly as it seems to all fall apart there is a solution to the issue at hand or a new door that opens, a new road, a new beginning. It is never easy changes in life, especially when they seem to come to your face back to back to back, but hold steady and take things one moment at a time when it seems that you cannot breath for all the blows you have been given.  Talk it out as much as you can with good friends who do not mind listening. Go ride your bike or get quiet with God in your own personal way and get it out of your system. Allow the emotions to ride through you like walking through a fog. Let them go and realize and accept that what you are dealing with is not a mountain, it only feels like it. See it as a speed bump, knowing that you are on the right track, because the law of opposites always comes first. Do not give up on yourself. Do not give up on God and the Universe. Do your best to say thank you for those things you do have, not focus on what is lacking or now lost. It is in the gratitude that prayers and miracles can work along with a little faith and some action that you do have control of.

I will share with all of you that this past two weeks has been a true test of endurance in faith walking. As many things as one could imagine possibly going wrong did and then some. But all the while I kept telling myself that it would all work out. I had several moments of total breakdown to release the shockwaves that had hit my heart, mind, body and soul. But as I have advised to all of you, I allowed myself to feel those feelings as a part of the response to the stimuli but once that was done, I started to focus on those things I did have in my life that were not broken or gone, those things which survived and needed to be nurtured and valued. I took action on those things which were within my control and asked for help from others un ashamed because it was truly needed in the moment and so grateful that it was there when I did ask. For all the things that went wrong, it could have been so much worse! And as the challenges presented themselves there was someone there to pick up the baton and run with it until the goal of moving me was completed. Now the job of getting me settled and working is at hand. No longer a desire but a need. I had set out on this path to begin anew, to expand myself and my horizons. I made it through when the odds were totally against me making that happen. Moments of doubt in myself in everything and everybody, but they were moments not days or months. The ebb and flow moved quickly and things continue to move with a swiftness I have not experienced since my awakening. I am not perfect, I have my moments of weakness and anger and frustration like all the rest, but I do my best now, to really seize that opportunity to change my perspective and actions around when challenges arise. I stay in the right now. What can I do about this right now? If it’s nothing then fretting will not help at all. So I may retreat and meditate, or write, or sing or walk or sit in the sun, something to change how I am looking at things. Taking a moment to come to a balance. That is not an easy thing to do when you just want to run and hide from the world wondering why you woke up this morning. Not an easy thing to do when you feel like the train has just plowed into your chest and you cannot breath over and over again.

Change always means the death of something and the rebirth of a new thing. It is never the same but if it was, we would not grow, it would be boring and stagnant if there were no adversity in the world. This is why we are grateful for even the challenges in life. Yes life changing. Yes very scary because we do not know what lies before us. We have to remember that it could be something even more wonderful then we ever imagined! It may look the same but it could be better and stronger! YOU are better and stronger having walked through that fire! Now you might be able to help guide another though that same scary moment when they come to it in their walk! You never know until you try it. You never know unless you risk walking through that door of uncertainty and discomfort. Living life requires that you take the risks. Failure is only one step closer to success. We never learn if we don’t try. For me, I worked on the show, the websites, unpacking boxes and organizing one box at a time, I had to rearrange a few things and borrow a friend’s car for awhile, I have to figure out a means of income that will sustain my son and I. When I stepped back and took things as I could, what I could do I did, what I couldn’t do I put off until I could do it with success and clarity. I am being very contemplative in the steps that I make and not doing it from a place of fear or desperation. I have done my best, not totally successful at not reacting but responding. I have remembered to be loving with myself and others and to be grateful for all that I have. To remember that no matter how dark it seems, God has never let me down. Even when things didn’t logically make sense, it will always work out for the highest good of all. I try to remember to be humble and compassionate in my walk. To do deeds in love without expectation. To give until I can give no more of myself, my belongings, my time, my knowledge… and if I do these things, then all the rest will fall into place somehow.

Stand up for what is right. Believe in yourself when no one else does. Remember that we are never alone even though the road can be lonely. Life is meant to be lived. We are meant to be happy whatever that looks like to you. I know that God has not brought me through the many things in life that I have endured to have me fail now. I have to believe that he loves me that much and that I have to love myself that much. I am thankful that I have people around me to remind me to believe in my ability to carry on no matter what. To land on my feet and make lemonade out the lemons I get handed. I do my best to find the serenity in any given moment. The beauty of the sunrise, the peace of the sunset. The simple things in life that make me cherish the life I have and give me the strength to make it through to the next challenge or task at hand and to give me the stamina to endure those moments when life is not fun or happy. I encourage all of you to hear my tales and thoughts and see if you see some of yourself or someone you know in these words and perhaps for a moment see a new perspective a different set of eyes. And that my hope is you find some comfort in knowing that it will all be OK and will work out just as it’s supposed to. Staying in the now, keeps your sanity. Leave for tomorrow what is tomorrows today has enough of its own.

Share with us if you will some of your moments of strength and challenge and how you overcame in your journey. It is good to share so that others may gain from your experience.

I thank you all for your time and consideration of these musings of mine. Be blessed and nothing less always.

Until next time. Adieu. xox Kimberly

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!

Greetings and Salutations One and All!!! Today is Earth Day. The day we celebrate our beloved Gaia! Here in Boulder they are coming out with all the stops! People wearing their rainbow gear and green hats planting trees and all kinds of celebrations all over town.

The energies out there are very polarized and people have been in weird head spaces all week. We are under the influences of Mercury Retro and it’s definitely having it’s affect.

I guess the most important thing or thought I would like to share with everyone today is to remember to come from a place of love and understanding. People are out of sorts and we need to remember tolorance. Hatred and gossiping is just so old energy! Help promote tolerance in your neighborhoods. We are the HUMAN RACE we come in many shapes sizes and religions. We all have the equal right to be on this planet and experience our lives. To push hatred is only hurting yourselves in the long run. So focus on how you can encourage support of all of humanity not just your own lil groups. How can we take action to unify our planet if everyone things their way is the only way?

I do hope that you make it a wonderful day! I planted some flowers and I am wearing my tie dies today!

Love Light n Blessings everyone@!

Greetings and Salutations One and All! Today I would like to discuss mindfullness. “What is that?” I’m sure you are asking yourself. Well in my definition, it is being absolutely present within the moment. Most people might think that they are truly in the moment most of the time, but if you really pay attention a lot of the time we are not in the present moment. We are in the future, past, lost in thought. Most of us check in and out of the present most of the time.

Spirit has really been on me about this particular issue of late, and I am sure that I am not alone.  What it means to not just know it but to own it and walk it and intergrate it into your everyday life. I was recently faced with a situation as most of you know, where in I had to come to a place of radical acceptance of another person’s decision. A betrayal, and several losses within a very short period of time. I shared with all of you some of the processes that I used during this time period. One of the things that I have found is that it is not so easy to stay in the present when chaos is surrounding every aspect of your life.

So I am coming to you now, having been exposed to some great new information from Sue Piver, who wrote the book, “The Wisdom of a Broken Heart” and Dee Wallace, who wrote the book, ” Conscious Creation” and from several other great books that are out there right now on the topic of changing our thinking. For what we focus on we bring to ourselves and we are creators that have the ability to change what our reality looks like. How we see things and perceive things has everything to do with that. These two dynamic ladies have come up with some fantastic hands on ideas on how to overcome the challenging emotional states we all get to at some point in our lives.  I have been using their techniques within my own personal life and I will tell you I have been astonished at how well it has worked for me.

I have invited them both to be guests on the show, and hopefully they will graciously accept. I can only tell you that it would be a complete blessing to all of you if they did. Truly amazing beings! Amazing books! Amazing results!

I have recently been attending DBT technique training and it is so interesting that some of the very techniques they are teaching for psychology now have their same roots as these two books. Funny how the universe works, especially when a message is loud and clear. The techniques help you to cope with strong emotions and emotional responses. It helps to reprogram the old programming from your earlier years and all up to now. You become self empowered to see how these very simple and quick techniques can change your entire perspective about life and the people in it when you begin to do the homework!

I challenge you all to the next time you feel in a moment of emotional overload, find simply 20 things in the room around you. Take notice of them and what about them caught your awareness. What you are doing by doing this is taking yourself out of emotion and into your mental bodies. If you begin to note where in your body your are feeling the discomfort and address the fears at the core of the emotion you can allow these emotions to pass through you without stuffing them.

The idea is to become aware of wha tis actually happening around you when you get to these crisis moments in life. Stop and notice what is around you, what is going on. Most times there is nothing going on. Whether you are in your car or a room, there is not usually alot going on when we are having these momentary melt downs. You begin to become aware of right now. Usually the emotion is coming from a past memory or a thought of what could be but it is not right now. This moment. As you begin to do this, catch yourself when you are on the phone or talking to your kids, see how much time you are really being present in this moment, versus, being in thoughts like, “I have this, this and this to do ….” or “If only I could get this going I could>…..” these types of statements in your thoughts are not what is right now. The power is in the moment of right now. You can create and choose in this moment only. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come. Right now is where you are and where it’s at! You will find that if you stay in the now moment you are less likely to experience waves of emotions that are not real but more illusion.

Look at the fear that is causing the emotional outburst. I am afraid to be alone, I am afraid to die alone, I am afraid I will never find love again, I am not worthy, I am not deserving, I am not pretty enough or smart enough, whatever tape is playing in your head at the base of that fear reaction, then counter that thought with I am never alone, I will not die alone, I will find love again, I am worthy of all good things, I am deserving of love and happiness, I am beautiful and I love myself, I am smart and funny, I am love and I only accept that which is healthy and for my highest good in my life, life flows to me with ease and grace, my lessons come with ease and grace, i am creation, these types of statements can replace the old tapes. These affirmations help shift what is causing the pain. Our stinking thinking about stuff. This is not to say life is always wonderful, this is to say these are some ways on how to pick up the pieces when there’s a million of them to pick up. The nice thing about that is you can paint your own picture how you want the pieces to fit! It’s your paint and your canvas how do you want your picture to look, make it so. We cannot control others or what they do or say or think, if we are trying then we need to look at our own need to control and work with it.

Try this mindfullness awareness exercise for a week. Let us know what results you found out about yourself!

Love and light everyone!

Kimberly

Audio blog disclaimer: I added addendum to the written blog wherein I state clearly that although I am in need of medical attention, I am still able to work fine and I look for work daily there are just too many without work right now and not enough jobs to go around. I have faith the right one will come. Thank you. Kimberly

Greetings and Salutations One and All.   Well it looks like new birth is the theme of the season! New buds on the trees where flowers are soon to bloom and our country passes a historic bill for complete healthcare reform! Amen!

For me this is a day to rejoice. I am one of the millions who will benefit from this new law! I have worked 25 of my 44 years paying my dues into the system. I am now in a situation where my health began to fail severely. I have needed to be hospitalized and needed surgery for over a year and closer to two years.  Because I lost my job and no health insurance would cover me for “pre-existing conditions” I could not get any carrier to cover my illnesses! I had exhausted all my savings and went into substantial debt already behind a brain injury series and now this! I collect unemployment and go in the hole to the tune of $100 a month just in basics and that includes no television for a year! We get food from the food banks to survive most months and they tell me that I make too much money for two people and I couldn’t qualify for medicaid in my state! Even though this is life threatening potentially what is wrong with me, they still will not cover the test because I need it, only if it’s a “check up” will they pay for it! Are you kidding me!? And all my doctors can tell me is we understand and we hope that the congress will pass the new law, we know you need care but our hands are tied! So, from my perspective AMEN! Maybe now, I can get the proper treatment for what ails me, what can be fixed will and it will happen before I drop dead like so many do without this health coverage. I’m sorry, I do not care what side of the fence you sit on, it is all our responsibility to pay for and help others who are in need to get what they need when they need it, every human being on the planet has the right to be healthy. Doctors, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, need to stop being so greedy, get back to reusable instruments instead of disposable and save a land fill or two along the way of saving money too! Let’s get real about what the costs are for healthcare and get creative about how to stream line the whole thing, tighten up the loose ends and go single payee and payor and put in first tri mester abortions for those who do not ask for it or are in life threatening situations and abolish the 2nd tri mester abortions, the point of life begins with breath, when a living being can live outside the mother on its own without help is when life begins not before, it’s a beautiful set of cells that wont live otherwise…compromise and be the democracy we claim to be! Show the world WE CAN GET ALONG!

I saw some of the most amazing speeches yesterday on that floor on both sides of the issues. Some I just had to roll my eyes about. I do not think that most people have actually READ the law! If you read the thing, you will see that alot of the hype is just that! Fear mongering and hype! The changes are really to only benefit the people and keep the insurance companies back in line. They are totally out of control! We have been screwed for too many years with premium rates gone wild and denials of coverage over stupid things, someone has finally had the balls to stand up and all people can do is react to change with fear! READ THE LAW! Then you can talk about it intelligently, otherwise you are buying into heresay and gossip and not thinking for yourself!

I have read it, and I agree with most of it! There are a few changes I would make but nothing so drastic it would take months to tighten up! I worked with insurance companies for a living and I have lived through their insanity as a patient as well. People need to get educated before they get heated. We need to stop thinking in terms of ME and get into the mindset of WE the human race. Get out of greed and fear and control issues and move past yourselves and get creative if you do not like what is going on and you think you have a better solution then WRITE YOUR CONGRESSMEN AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT PEOPLE!  How many of you even know who your representatives are! Let alone the email address to write them! If you are mad then figure out why and what you are really mad about. Is the frustration really over this issue or the issues in our own lives and it’s easier to point fingers and play the blame game and the I’m better then you game which is childish and un healthy at best. If we would stand on the words of our forefathers….”united we stand, divided we fall” and we really have forgotten how to unite except under the most extreme circumstances of cataclysmic proportions as a people it’s really imbalanced and needs to come back to center. Start thinking in terms of humanity not colors or religions or borders that do not truly exist, it’s god’s land not ours. We are the keepers of it and we are mucking things up pretty much over power and greed which is perceived and forced upon the people. We are so young still in our thinking, we really need to grow up and take our place as terrestrial beings again. Wake up and remember that this is an illusion, we have the power to move mountains within our own minds and in reality if we work towards that together. Learn to love your neighbor again. Learn to help your fellow man. Everyone pulls their weight and offers what their true gifts are. We can learn to live in harmony but it will take a lot of honesty and selflessness on our parts to make that happen for real.

I love the spring time. Change is not always a bad thing. Keep an open mind and heart and allow things to unfold. Get educated as to what the fuss is all about and read the dang bill! Then make your opinion known to your representative and speak your mind. Write editorials and blogs and let the people know what you think and why. Do not be afraid to exercise your god given right to free speech in a civil and calm manner so as to not offend dignity. Passion is good, fanatical is not. Use the system the right way.

I for one was never so proud to be an American as I was last night glued with my teenage son to the computer listening to history being made. As glued as I was when we walked on the moon, Kent State, Twin Towers and so many more amazing leaps good and bad we Americans have made in our short history. We are great, humanity that is, we truly are amazing.At one point there was a man who got up for his one minute, he was the guy who helped champion this bill, ” It’s the patient’s bill of rights on steroids! ” Dinger is a character I tell you what! Another talk about veterans and mothers who have gone without coverage for so long and seniors who have to choose between food and medication, myself on that list of people making real choices like this each and every day. The real heros in this life are those people who have survived and thrived in spite of a failed system. Sometimes change is good, but growing pains still hurt. I hope that we can come to an agree to disagree type of state in this country. Something had to be done, this is a first step, let’s fine tune it and compromise like grown ups and remember to do what’s best for you and yours and the best FOR ALL concerned! What is for the highest good of ALL concerned?? Come from love not fear.

Make it a great day! Keep a smile in your heart and let it out for the whole world to see. Love, Peace, and blessings to everyone! xoxo Kimberly P.S. For those who would question, I am still able to work even though I am sick, I look for work every day I breath and most responses if any say I am over qualified. I say the right thing will come at the right time but I still do my part! Even to the extent I have looked into going back to finish my degree and I have been seeking consultation jobs on the side and nothing has manifested yet. So I hope that addresses those who are nay sayers on that point.

Greetings and salutations one and all. Today I would like to focus on a very serious and growing problem with our young people today…. suicide, ptsd, bullying, and our schools.

There’s a lot of news in the headlines of late, how many people are flipping out for a multitude of reasons. I believe the magnetics has a lot to do with it. But too, so does our society.

One of the political banners I have carried over the years has been the issues within the schools. I have a special needs child who has fallen through the cracks of the system for years. If it had not been for my educating myself as to the laws and how their game is played, we would have never survived middle school!

I find it interesting that Mr. Obama is on the same track with the idea that too many of our children are dropping out of school and in extreme cases out of life. Teen suicide rates are up to an all time high right now. It is critical that we start getting in touch with our youth NOW! We need to get to the core issues of why this is happening before we an stop it, otherwise we are just treating symptoms, putting a bandaid on it and the main issues will recurring  until we deal with the core of the problem. Our children lack respect, they lack guidance because our generation doesn’t know what they are truly dealing with in these kids. How can we ask our children to display respect when most adults do not treat each other with respect? Even with our current president our adults are behaving in very hateful ways to each other, so really what do we expect from our children today ???


In the headlines just this month, a teacher walks on campus in Alabama and blows away several co workers before killing herself, a math teacher has to tackle a 35 year old gunman in Littleton, CO just last week, Boulder High had a bomb threat two weeks ago and a child in Mass kills himself behind bullying all of this after the columbine children brought to our attention the need for reform within our schools! Ladies and gentlemen, our schools, our children, are NOT SAFE! Budget cuts and school closures have increased classroom size, decreased funds for specialized schools and programs for these kids who do not fit into the mainstream. These are the troubled kids, the ones who cannot seem to find their niche, their place in life. Their parents and they turn to the school systems and mental health systems and social service systems for help and there is none there.

My own personal battle with a variety of school districts has got me hot under the collar about this issue of bullying in the schools. I am currently in that battle of my son and I vs. the school district over these very issues.

Indigo children, which most of the younger generation is, are here to tear down the systems and to make way for the crystals and rainbows to repair and rebuild. But indigos are not about repair. So for parents this is a challenge because they find themselves facing rearing a child who is wired as an entirely different creature then anything we have had to deal with before. They are gifted, they are highly intelligent,  yet appear lazy and mouthy often times. They are more angry and moody then the children of past generations due to their wiring designed to tear down systems that no longer work for the good of all concerned and prepared for the coming frequencies of the future. They lack motivation except for video games and rebelling against the machine so to speak. Why groups like Emo are created.  Yet they have their own unique ways of getting the system to change its ways. A slow process but effective.

So what we find is the new wave getting labeled ADD, ADHD, Bi-polar, Depressed, Etc. We surpress their great talents and subdue them so they are “manageable” killing their spirits with drugs they do not need like seroquil or ridalin  when Really what is happening with most of them is that they are sensitive (empathic), they come into this reality and density, they are not used to the body idea and they see the chaos all around and they are wired to want to tear it down and make it better. So because most of these young beings come from other universes and planets and have never been to 3d Earth, they struggle to fit into their new environment, and they learn differently then the children of the past, they require a more visual and tangible way of learning.

The problem with this is the schools have not changed their curriculum for teaching in over 60 years! This is why our children are failing because our system is failing to keep up not our kids!

These children, suffer the trauma of being human, they suffer because they are singled out in the social arenas at school and at home and they never seem to fit into the square little boxes people try to put them in. They are teased brutally and endlessly. As a result they often times develop PTSD symptoms and they either get reactive or they shut down. These children are the ones with no voice in this world. I for one have done my best to be a very active voice and bring light to this very dark matter.

Our children are committing suicide, having intimate relations and doing drugs and alcohol and getting addicted to violence and porn as a result of  prolonged pain from the unacceptance by their peers and family, their exposures to the net and video games and how society deals with these topics so openly. Kids today do not respond to “do as I say not as I do” discipline. We must be the example for these children in life. Most of the reactions these kids show are things that if the situation happened to an adult, we would react much the same way, but because they are kids, no one listens or it doesn’t apply to them? Really how does that work? We say respect is earned…. are we earning their respect by behaving in ugly ways?

Part of this shift is understanding there is no separation. This includes, kids and adults. Yes it is our job to guide them and teach them, they have their own path,  it is not theirs to be our slaves at home doing all the work, that should be a team effort or beating them into submission as many parents have been trained by their own upbringing, but to treat them as mini people, mini adults, the way you would want to be treated now,  because they are exposed to very adult things at a very young age, so to go with the old way of doing things, is doing a dis service to our youth in not preparing them for the real world. We shelter them and protect them but to do it too much so then turn them loose in the real world. This is where the depression comes in for young adults, so much pressure and culture shock,  they just fold emotionally. Hence the increased suicide rates.

We need to do something about this issue. Our drop out rates here in the United States is absolutely unacceptable. Our children are our most valuable commodity they are our future. We are failing them as a society placing a higher value on a ball players and actors then a teacher or school and we need to put action to this to make a change! Start attending your local school board meetings, talk to people who advocate for children and see what they can offer as advice to deal with the many issues that arise when your child falls into this void with no voice. There are laws in place which can be used to enforce the no bullying policies and if there are none where you live then I would write your local authorities, school superintendent and congress people and let them know you are “Mad as hell and you are not going to take it anymore!”

Nothing will change if we all think that someone else is dealing with this issue. I have for years wanted to form a coalition of parents, teachers and students to create their own lobbying group and start making some political noise about this issue. I encourage you to begin in your own neighborhood with the parents.  Not all kids are wired the same, we have to make a way to accommodate all children not just the 80% majority. No child should be left behind, on this point Mr. Bush and I agree. Change begins at home, start making some noise, contact local news places as you hear about these injustices in our district with these kids. The children and parents feel like it’s us against them and they learn quickly that the system is in need of change. So to you my audience, please get involved in this, get active and find out what your kids are dealing with at school. When we were 10 our biggest concerns were which bike or doll to play with, our kids today, deal with guns at school, gangs, drugs, sexting, by the time they are in fourth or fifth grade now! So look at their texts, look at their emails and IM conversations while playing games and what not on the computer, get nosey! Be proactive in preparing your kids because it starts much sooner then you would imagine. If your child is suffering from bullying contact your local truancy officers and court officials and ask what can be done to cease the issues. Take things to the next level and do not fear. For the only thing you have to fear is fear itself! Ok maybe apathy falls in with fear, apathy is our worst enemy in this country as I see it…

I will revisit this issue further later on down the line, sharing with you some of the issues people have run into with regard to this. Until next time! Peace, love and light!
