GOD AND ST. FRANCIS DISCUSSING LAWNS

GOD: Francis, you know all about gardens and nature. What in the world is going on down there? What happened to the dandelions, violets, thistle and stuff I started eons ago? I had a perfect, no-maintenance garden plan. Those plants grow in any type of soil, withstand drought and multiply with abandon. The nectar from the long lasting blossoms attracts butterflies, honey bees and flocks of songbirds. I expected to see a vast garden of colors by now. But all I see are these green rectangles.

ST. FRANCIS: It’s the tribes that settled there, Lord. The Suburbanites. They started calling your flowers “weeds” and went to great lengths to kill them and replace them with grass.

GOD: Grass? But it’s so boring. It’s not colorful. It doesn’t attract butterflies, birds and bees, only grubs and sod worms. It’s temperamental with temperatures. Do these Suburbanites really want all that grass growing there?

ST. FRANCIS: Apparently so, Lord. They go to great pains to grow it and keep it green. They begin each spring by fertilizing grass and poisoning any other plant that crops up in the lawn.

GOD: The spring rains and warm weather probably make grass grow really fast. That must make the Suburbanites happy.

ST. FRANCIS: Apparently not, Lord. As soon as it grows a little, they cut it-sometimes twice a week.

GOD: They cut it? Do they then bale it like hay?

ST. FRANCIS: Not exactly, Lord. Most of them rake it up and put it in bags.

GOD: They bag it? Why? Is it a cash crop? Do they sell it?

ST. FRANCIS: No Sir. Just the opposite. They pay to throw it away.

GOD: Now let me get this straight. They fertilize grass so it will grow. And when it does grow, they cut it off and pay to throw it away?

ST. FRANCIS: Yes, Sir.

GOD: These Suburbanites must be relieved in the summer when we cut back on the rain and turn up the heat. That surely slows the growth and saves them a lot of work.

ST. FRANCIS: You aren’t going to believe this Lord. When the grass stops growing so fast, they drag out hoses and pay more money to water it so they can continue to mow it and pay to get rid of it.

 

GOD: What nonsense. At least they kept some of the trees. That was a sheer stroke of genius, if I do say so myself. The trees grow leaves in the spring to provide beauty and shade in the summer. In the autumn they fall to the ground and form a natural blanket to keep moisture in the soil and protect the trees and bushes. Plus, as they rot, the leaves form compost to enhance the soil. It’s a natural circle of life.

ST. FRANCIS: You better sit down, Lord. The Suburbanites have drawn a new circle. As soon as the leaves fall, they rake them into great piles and pay to have them hauled away.

GOD: No. What do they do to protect the shrub and tree roots in the winter and to keep the soil moist and loose?

ST. FRANCIS: After throwing away the leaves, they go out and buy something which they call mulch. They haul it home and spread it around in place of the leaves.

GOD: And where do they get this mulch?

ST. FRANCIS: They cut down trees and grind them up to make the mulch.

GOD: Enough. I don’t want to think about this anymore. St. Catherine, you’re in charge of the arts. What movie have they scheduled for us tonight?”

ST. CATHERINE: “Dumb and Dumber”, Lord. It’s a really stupid movie about…..

GOD: Never mind, I think I just heard the whole story from St. Francis.

THE 14th Annual SOLAR WAVE 2008 ~ Phase Two

 
     The Living Gaia Prayer Wheel Activation!
     Equinox ~ September 22nd, 2008 ~ 1 to 3 PM your local time all across the Earth.
     This is a Joyful Invitation to the Awakening Masses of Gaia to come together in ONE UNIFIED HEART to Activate our Planet as a LIVING GAIA PRAYER WHEEL!  We Invite all to join together with like-minded, heart-centered souls to create an Unstoppable Tidal Solar Wave of Light and Positive Mass Awareness, to harmonize all discordant energy on Gaia, and to initiate a spontaneous Awakening of Humanity! 
     With the Power and Light of the Creator that is within each of us, we can usher in the age of PEACE, HARMONY, LOVE, COMPASSION and IMPECCABILITY, that has been prophesied by many ancient traditions.
     This will all occur during the powerful window of unlimited opportunity at Equinox, and is combined with the multiplying potential of 13:30 LOCAL SIDEREAL TIME, and the grace-filled rotation of the Earth as a living Prayer Wheel.
     “Again and again some people in the crowd wake up.  They have no ground in the crowd … they emerge according to much broader laws … and carry strange customs with them … and demand room for bold gestures.  The future speaks ruthlessly through them.”  ~  Rilke
     What is the catch you ask?  Does it sound to good to be true?  The fact is … that there is no catch.  This opportunity is free, green and supports all living things!
     There is a powerful time each day on the planetary grid where our sixth sense abilities are 400% times more effective.  When we use this knowledge and join together at this powerful time, our efforts will be multiplied within the harmonizing effects of Equinox.  We can heal the [our] Earth and Awaken Humanity!
     Have you ever felt like you were here on the Earth for a Special Purpose?  Do you feel that you are potentially … THE VERY ONE … who could help tip the balance of our dimension back into the LIGHT?  You are RIGHT!  You are the ONE! … but … do you want proof?  You will not have proof unless you are willing to go out on a limb, be bold, and believe in the light that you know we are.  Are you ready to prove that you are that powerful, and that we can heal the Earth and Awaken humanity?  Keep reading ~ The Ancient one and the Earth have a plan.
     Ancient traditions understand that the EQUINOX is a powerful time to initiate changes in our material world and shift into a new reality.  On Equinox, the Earth and the Sun are in perfect balance and harmony, as the sun is centered between the Northern and Southern hemispheres, and centered between Heaven and Earth.  This creates a sacred cross of balancing energy that naturally harmonizes the planet and humanity.  For 24 hours, the Earth heals itself in this balancing energy of a Solar Wave.
     The Tibetans understand the power of spinning the Prayer Wheel to send healing energy across the planet.  Could it be that the Prayer wheel is a representation of the spinning Earth?  Native American cultures know that the medicine wheel is a reflection of the Earth.  The medicine wheel is used for ceremony to heal and bring balance back to the Earth.  So why not use the Earth herself?

 For the last 14 years, thousands upon thousands of light workers, peace-keepers, shamans, healers, gods and goddesses, angels, and saints, from around the globe have joined together to work with powerful Equinox energy in a 24-hour Solar Wave of Light and creative potential.  But this event is nothing new.  Ancient ones knew about this powerful time, and have used it to balance and harmonize discordant energy for eons.  The fact that the masses are now becoming aware of this time of great potential is a huge sign that we are, in fact, on the brink of planetary awakening.
     This year a group of ancient ones, called the Star Elders, say that we are ready to evolve this year’s Solar Wave to a Stellar Wave!  This year the Star Elders call us to work with the Equinox, but to also add a hugely multiplying potential, a specific local sidereal time (LST a.k.a. Star Time), to synchronize our global efforts to reclaim paradise.  Are you in?

Avocadoes, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female – they look just like these organs. Today’s research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (mo dern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).

Importance of YOUR Actions

Connecting the Grid, the Importance of your actions

Connecting the Grid, the Importance of your actions

Where there is Love, there is Willingness to Change.

 

Love the Earth as yourself: Love every country, town, humans, animals, plants and the ground as you love yourself. If you cannot feel love, imagine that you feel it, embracing it all, and it will slowly come to you. This act will enhance your love for yourself and the Earth, and change you both, as you and the Earth are One. Earth is part of your light body and your physical body. 

You have energetic circuitries called meridians and layers in and outside your body called the aura, and also does the Earth have layers of interconnected energetic grids inside and around it. You have a flow of energy running through your body, entering your crown running to the bottom of your spine and your feet and out making a closed circle by going into the crown again, this making a shape like a doughnut. You have also a similar circuitry running the other way from your feet and bottom to your crown. This is called a Tube Torus. The Earth poles are similar to the entering points in our body; Life Force energy is streaming from and to the Source, in and out from the entering points. The grids inside and
around the Earth are similar to, the same as your energetic circuitries.

Earth Healer, Light Worker

As you connect with the grids by intending, feeling and visualizing a light connection from your heart to the light layers, and send your love and light to them, you heal Earth and yourself. If you have unserving emotions and thoughts against yourself, other beings or countries, you are damaging both yourself and the Earth. Everything is a part of you. Every being is a cell in your body. Every country is a greater part of you. So if you feel pity, shame, hatred, fear or do not care for a country or a town and the beings in it, you are sending the same destructive emotions towards great parts of yourself.

the human electromagnetic antennae.jpgAs you connect with your unserving thought forms and emotions and heal them with acceptance, forgiveness and love, you also heal the global circuitries of the same thoughts and emotions, since all is energy, running in different frequencies. Frequencies are in this case a combination of energy vibrations, speed, sound and light.

Unserving emotions such as hatred are of a low vibrating, dark and slow frequency, emotions of unconditional love and gratitude are of the highest, fastest vibrating frequencies, radiating clear light. There are grids created of fear, hatred, jealousy, all unserving emotions. And grids blue_planet.jpgcreated of Love. The purpose for light workers is to transform all grids into Love Grids, containing different frequencies, aspects of Love. This you do by transforming yourself into containing only that of Love, by releasing all unserving thought forms and emotions. Every time you have released an issue containing unserving thought forms and emotions, you connect with the grids in and around the Earth, intending to connect with the grids of the collective unconscious, unserving emotions, and you will heal this grid with your own releasing process. When going through the process of accepting, forgiving and loving yourself, you have the key to send this out in the grid, you send healing to everyone having the same issues and emotions. Intend and imagine Perfection, affecting all beings on Earth, and Earth herself.

 

You are One. And when you are aware of this Oneness, imagining and being aware that you and the Earth are One, with the same heart beating, you become even more One. The energetic connections are strengthened. When you focus on these connections to the Source, the Grids and Mother Earth, your thin threads of light are becoming thick ropes, then strong rays of light. Every thing you now do, think and feel, will affect the Grids. When you hate, you send Hate to the Grids. When you Love, you send Love to the Grids. You send it to every being on the Earth, because All are connected to the Grids, they can not live without them. That lightbody6 alex g.jpgimportant is your Doing and Being.

 

Maybe you think: “If I don’t consciously connect with the Grids, my actions will not affect it”. You are wrong. You are always connected, and whatever you do affects it, consciously or not.

Do you want the world to be better? Consciously connect with the grids and Be and Do better. Transform yourself. Work with yourself, releasing all unserving thought forms and emotions. Love yourself at all times, in all states of Being. Forgive yourself and be patient with yourself. Ask the Divine Beings to help with your Transformation into Unconditional Love. Love without judgement of any kind.

 

In co-creation, Metatron and Trine.

A Different Perspective…

 This quote speaks many truths within my being, so I thought I would share it with you today.

 I often like to imagine how the world would be if we didn’t tear into our mother earth as if she was a valuable resource, but rather sit back and allow her to provide like she has for thousands of years. Imagine not having to wake up and go to work.

Imagine instead being able to go for a walk and collect the freshest of foods which grow in abundance all around us. Leisurely walks where we take in the beautiful scenery around us and let our senses be renewed. Breathe in the pure air, and watch the trees sway to the rhythm of the wind. The doe and her young nibble on fields of clover unafraid of your presence, because too often you have crossed paths. You share the earth, as it was ment to be shared and all of life prospers, in both peace and well-being. What a vision.

This vision is a true way of life, in alignment with spirit. This vision was lived upon the very land you read this less then a hundred and fifty years ago.

You ask me to plow the ground. Shall I take a knife and tear my mother’s
bosom? Then when I die she will not take me to her bosom to rest. You ask
me to dig for stones! Shall I dig under her skin for bones? Then when I die
I cannot enter her body to be born again. You ask me to cut grass and
make hay and sell it and be rich like white men, but how dare I cut my
mother’s hair. I want my people to stay with me here. All the dead men
will come to life again. Their spirits will come to their bodies again. We
must wait here in the homes of our fathers and be ready to meet them
in the bosom of our mother.
-WOVOKA (JACK WILSON),
PAIUTE SPIRITUAL LEADER, C. 1856-1932
 

The Origin of Medicine

The Origin of Medicine

At one time, animals and people lived together peaceably and talked with each other. But when mankind began to multiply rapidly, the animals were crowded into forests and deserts.
Man began to destroy animals wholesale for their skins and furs, not just for needed food. Animals became angry at such treatment by their former friends, resolving they must punish mankind.
The bear tribe met in council, presided over by Old White Bear, their Chief. After several bears had spoken against mankind for their bloodthirsty ways, war was unanimously agreed upon. But what kinds of weapons should the bears use?
Chief Old White Bear suggested that man’s weapon, the bow and arrow, should be turned against him. All of the council agreed. While the bears worked and made bows and arrows, they wondered what to do about bowstrings. One of the bears sacrificed himself to provide the strings, while the others searched for good arrow- wood.
When the first bow was completed and tried, the bear’s claws could not release the strings to shoot the arrow. One bear offered to cut his claws, but Chief Old White Bear would not allow him to do that, because without claws he could not climb trees for food and safety. He might starve.
The deer tribe called together its council led by Chief Little Deer. They decided that any Indian hunters, who killed deer without asking pardon in a suitable manner, should be afflicted with painful rheumatism in their joints.
After this decision, Chief Little Deer sent a messenger to their nearest neighbors, the Cherokee Indians.
“From now on, your hunters must first offer a prayer to the deer before killing him,” said the messenger. “You must ask his pardon, stating you are forced only by the hunger needs of your tribe to kill the deer. Otherwise, a terrible disease will come to the hunter.”
When a deer is slain by an Indian hunter, Chief Little Deer will run to the spot and ask the slain deer’s spirit; “Did you hear the hunter’s prayer for pardon?”
If the reply is yes, then all is well and Chief Little Deer returns to his cave. But if the answer is no, then the Chief tracks the hunter to his lodge and strikes him with the terrible disease of rheumatism, making him a helpless cripple unable to hunt again.
All the fishes and reptiles then held a council and decided they would haunt those Cherokee Indians, who tormented them, by telling them hideous dreams of serpents twining around them and eating them alive. These snake and fish dreams occurred often among the Cherokees. To get relief, the Cherokees pleaded with their Shaman to banish their frightening dreams if they no longer tormented the snakes and fish.
Now when the friendly plants heard what the animals had decided against mankind, they planned a countermove of their own. Each tree, shrub, herb, grass, and moss agreed to furnish a cure for one of the diseases named by the animals and insects.
Thereafter, when the Cherokee Indians visited their Shaman about their ailments and if the medicine man was in doubt, he communed with the spirits of the plants. They always suggested a proper remedy for mankind’s diseases.
This was the beginning of plant medicine from nature among the Cherokee Indian nation a long, long time ago.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Another Version~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In ancient times, people lived in harmony with Nature. They spoke the
same language as the animals and plants. They hunted for food only to
satisfy their hunger and needs, always offering a prayer of thanks for
what they had taken from Nature.
As time went on, humans lost this innocence and harmony. They took more
than they needed. They forgot their prayers of gratitude. They killed
animals, and each other, for sport or pleasure. The Bear Tribe, chief
among the animals, called a meeting of all the animals. They decided
that something had to be done. The Bears suggested that they shoot back
when the humans shot at them, but the bow and arrow required too great a
sacrifice, for one bear would have to give up his life so that his sinew
coul d be used for the bowstring. The bear’s claws were too long for
shooting a bow Anyway, and would become entangled on the string.


The Deer Tribe offered another method of dealing with the problem. One
of their members said, “We will bring disease into the world. Each of us
will be responsible for a different illness. When humans live out of
balance with Nature, when they forget to give thanks for their food,
they will get sick.” And in fact the Deer did invoke rheumatism and
arthritis; each animal then decided to invoke a different
disease    
The Plant Tribe was more sympathetic and felt that this was too harsh a
punishment, so they volunteered their help. They said that for every
disease a human gets, one of them would be present to cure it. That way,
if people used their intelligence, they would be able to cure their
ailments and regain their balance. All of Nature agreed to this
strategy. One plant in particular spoke out. This was Tobacco, the chief
of the plants. He said, “I will be the sacred herb. I will not cure any
specific disease, but I will help people return to the sacred way of
life, provided I am smoked or offered with prayers and ceremony. But if
I am misused, if I am merely smoked for pleasure, I will cause cancer,
the worst disease of all.”

The close friends of the Plant Tribe, the Rock Tribe and the Mineral
Tribe, agreed to help. Each mineral would have a spiritual power, a
subtle vibration that could be used to regain perfect health. The Ruby,
worn as an amulet, would heal the heart; the Emerald would heal the
liver and eyes, and so on. The chief of the mineral tribe, Quartz
Crystal, was clear, like the light of Creation itself. Quartz put his
arms around his brother Tobacco and said, “I will be the sacred mineral.
I will heal the mind. I will help human beings see the origin of
disease. I will help to bring wisdom and clarity in dreams. And I will
record their spiritual history, including our meeting today, so that in
the future, if humans gaze into me, they may see their origin and the
way of harmony.” And so it is today.

Russell Means and The Republic of Lakota

I would like to point out that we are all human beings here on this earth. We all have our own stengths, weaknesses, faults, motives and dreams that enable us to learn our lessons here upon mother earth.

I believe the video above speaks of Russell’s dreams. The article below will show you a little more about Russell and his character. I ask that you keep an open mind and not judge this man. Recognize that he, like us, is human and reaching toward his dreams.  ~Kat

Call to heal our Earth Mother on 3/21/08

Passing along the word to bring healing for our Mother Earth, if you do not play the drums please take this opportunity to send up some prayers to our Creator. Lots of love to you all, Kat

8,000 Drums Healing Ceremony

March 21, 2008

2PM EST
Gilles Novaks, who is a Montagnais Indian from Montreal and a Medicine Man and a Healer, requests all Tribal people (actually all peoples) to participate in a worldwide ceremony called the ‘8,000 Drums’. He was contacted by two Huron Clan Grandmothers from up there in Canada and they asked him to help spread the word to all Indians everwhere. It will take place on March 21, 2008 at 12:00 noon MEXICO TIME (2:00PM Eastern Standard Time)!!

All you need to do is play a drum either alone, or with a group or have the whole Tribe participate. The purpose is to fulfill the OTOMI PROPHECY. The Otomi’s are Mayan Olmec and Toltec descendants. The drums will be played so that the Creator will hear us and grant our wishes as we pray for help in the Healing Process of our Mother Earth. The other races of people are destroying Her and our Mother Earth needs our prayers.

Thank you.

Ewo-wox-co-dah-wa.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now you may be asking why 8000 drums? Here’s a good explaination. Lots of thanks to you Mark for passing this on. Many blessings to you.

8000 Drums Magic Number

The Otomi prophecy of 8,000 Sacred Drums joining together
and starting the the healing of Mother Earth is to occur
on March 21, 2008.

This number 8000 has a very special relationship.

It has been found that it takes a certain number of
people to start a shift within human consciousness.
That number is the square root of 1 per cent.

There are over 6.5 billion people on Mother Earth right
now and square root of 1 per cent is around 8000

So the 8000 is around the minimum number we need to start this
process of healing. Amazing!!! this prophesy has a number directly
related with our human consciousness.

But each of us contains within us the ancient ancestral memory
in which we are ALL ONE and thus each of the people participating
on March 21 may consciously connect into the ONE and it will
spread and touch everyone on Mother Earth “inviting” them to join
us … even if they have not heard of the 8,000 Drums.

As we do this drumming, we can also FEEL the HEALING
of ourselves and Mother Earth as if it has already happened.

In other words, step into that future where this healing has
already taken place and give THANKS to the CREATOR for
giving us this blessing.

Please pass this message to others
if you feel it would help.

Blessings,
Mark (Lahun OxLahun)
