Are we civilized?

“Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn’t have any kind of prison.
Because of this, we had no delinquents.
Without a prison, there can be no delinquents.
We had no locks nor keys and therefore among us there were no thieves.
When someone was so poor that he couldn’t afford a horse, a tent or a blanket, he would, in that case, receive it all as a gift.
We were too uncivilized to give great importance to private property.
We didn’t know any kind of money and consequently, the value of a human being was not determined by his wealth.
We had no written laws laid down, no lawyers, no politicians, therefore we were not able to cheat and swindle one another.
We were really in bad shape before the white men arrived and I don’t know how to explain how we were able to manage without these fundamental things that (so they tell us) are so necessary for a civilized society.”

Lawns and Humor

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.

Air Fresheners are Toxic

Ask Dr. Weil: Air Fresheners
Are they bad for my health?
By Andrew Weil, M.D., Prevention

Q: I use air fresheners in my home, but have been told I shouldn’t.
Are they bad for my health?

A: It certainly looks like they are. Recent research strongly
suggests that they raise your risk of a number of pulmonary diseases.
Last year researchers found that being exposed to chemicals from air
fresheners as little as once a week may increase your odds of
developing asthma symptoms by 71 percent. And a 2006 study showed
that people with high blood levels of the chemical 1,4
dichlorobenzene commonly found in air fresheners were more likely to
experience a decline in lung function.

Other studies point to a cancer link. University of California,
Berkeley, researchers determined that, when used in small, poorly
ventilated rooms, some air fresheners emit pollutants that create
high levels of formaldehyde, a carcinogen shown to cause cancer in
animals and respiratory irritation in20humans.

Last year, the Natural Resources Defense Council evaluated 14 air
fresheners, 12 of which had varying amounts of phthalates, chemicals
that may affect fertility, cause cancer, and trigger developmental
abnormalities in infants. The NRDC and other environmental groups
filed a petition calling for all air freshener-related products to be
tested for consumer safety and regulated by the government.

I recommend freshening the air by opening windows and eliminating the
sources of unpleasant odors. If you enjoy aromas indoors, opt for
natural items such as a lavender plant, potted herbs, or a bouquet of
fresh flowers.

Andrew Weil, M.D., is a pioneer in the field of holistic health and
founder and director of the Program in Integrative Medicine at the
College of Medicine, University of Arizona. He received his medical
training at Harvard University.

There was a prophecy given to us by the white buffalo calf woman stating that when the white buffalo came back to earth and was seen by humanity it was then time to come together and live once again in harmony. It is a time to support, honor and love one another. Remember how to be respectful to all of life, while following your own path to your heart’s desire.

There have been several white buffalo born over the last decade, and more and more we are seeing other animals also appear in white.

It is common belief among the ancients that moths are carriers of spiritual messages from your angels, spirit guides, ancestors, and the spirit world.

This is the message that was shown to me, and it is an honor to pass it on to you. Many Blessings.

October 14th – Fight for our World

Below you will find two videos which hint at the happenings of Oct 14th. There have been many diverse channelings popping up around the world about this day; All of which have very similiar messages. 

Though I do not believe we need to fight darkness, I am a firm believer in directing your thoughts and attentions toward the light to increase the vibration of consciousness among humanity. 

And now for your viewing pleasure…

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?

The Real Secret

The word spirit comes from the Latin word spiritus, meaning “breath”. Spirit is the breath of life. The word intelligent is from the Latin, intelligentia, meaning “choosing between”. Spiritual Intelligence is our ability to choose between spirit and ego. We consciously practice spiritual intelligence when we intentionally choose spirit over ego, love over fear, and the highest good for all over selfish interest..

The Voice of Spirit is the voice of our Higher Self. My Higher Self is that which has never left its creator. All Higher Selves are connected as One. I connect to my Higher Self through my soul. My soul is my dream self — that part of me that has wandered through countless life experiences trying to find its way back home to the Higher Self. My soul desires to wake up and remember who it is..

I develop my spiritual intelligence when I join with my soul and choose to identify with my Higher Self, my Spirit. In this state of identification I realize that I am not my body. I am not my gender or my profession. I am not my ethnicity nor am I my religion. I am not my life situation, my illnesses, my financial position, or my status in society. I am not my problems and I am not my past. Spiritual identification has me detaching from all forms and experiences and seeing myself as a spiritual being in this human experience..

Many people in spiritual circles like to call on angels, Jesus, or other beings of light. This is good. Many others make use of rituals, tools, methodologies, and programs to learn and grow. This can be good, too. As we develop spiritually we come to realize that we are the light. You and I are the light that we seek. There is nothing we can seek that we don’t already have within us. There is no person, program, or methodology that can do it for us. Nothing, of itself, will bring you the light or awaken you. It is your intention and willingness that that leads you to the power that lies within you..

This is the real “secret”. There is nothing out there you need. Love, peace, prosperity, and wholeness are already within you. When you trust in this completely, you have all that you need in the physical. When we are hung up on the form–the car, the house, the bank account, the great body, the great relationship– we make the form our source. The source, God, is within us, and is always available. We are not separate from God, and that is the secret..

We are born into this world not knowing the secret. If we knew it, we wouldn’t need to be here. Yet, we are here, so there is something to be learned. Both our tendencies to live from spirit and our tendencies live from ego are manifested in the physical world by way of the Law of Attraction..

The film and the book, The Secret, is an inspiring piece of work about the Law of Attraction. Certainly you can use the Law of Attraction to build the life you desire. It should be noted however, that both Hitler and Stalin successfully used the Law of Attraction. The movie indicates that wealthy power brokers have always used the Law of Attraction. This is where spiritual intelligence comes in. When you create, are you creating from spirit or from ego? ..

Another point The Secret makes is: “Anyone can do this.” Do what? Create a $4 million home? Own several luxury cars? Live a wealthy lifestyle? If this is true, then are we to conclude that those of us who are not enjoying these riches have something wrong with our thinking? On this basis we would have to make Donald Trump one of our primary spiritual teachers, and Bill Gates would be the world guru..

Each of us has an individual purpose to be played out in this life. For some, having great wealth is part of their purpose. For others, it may not be. Some people will practice changing their thoughts and emotions and find quick success. Others may practice for twenty or thirty years and find no change in what they have manifested. Neither scenario conclusively tells us where someone is in consciousness. The relationship between cause and effect is not linear. It is unlikely that you will think a negative thought today and the next day something bad will happen to you. Consciousness is made up of your awareness, understanding, and knowledge (or lack of). The physical manifestations in your life are not predictable to the ego mind..

For example, you may have a deep issue with unforgiveness. At the same time you are healthy, wealthy, and have good relationships. In spite of your wealth and health, you feel badly. In another instance, your unforgiveness may play out as indebtedness, poor health, or hurtful relationships, or all three. In truth, you don’t know what you signed up for when you came to this life. Cancer may manifest from deep anger, or maybe you signed up for the cancer experience to learn something else. Our life experiences are not rewards or punishments. They are opportunities for growth that we have agreed to on another level of consciousness..

I have heard people say, “I would rather be unhappy and rich than unhappy and poor.” Unhappy is unhappy. If you are very unhappy, wealth can provide plenty of distractions that keep you right where you are. Whereas, if you have a load of debt to contend with, you may be motivated to do the work. It is possible to be deeply indebted and ecstatically happy. If you can maintain that happiness the debt will probably dissolve in time. Whether it does or not is not the point. The important thing is that you have found inner wealth, peace and joy within, and that you have stopped identifying yourself with your manifestations. No one is luckier than you. The danger of finding wealth in the physical before you have inner wealth is that you will think the physical wealth makes you special..

Great wealth, excellent health, and beautiful relationships are wonderful to experience, but they are forms. Forms are effects. It is the cause that you focus on as a spiritually intelligent being. At some point in the spiritual development process, having nice things seems important. Further on your path, you just don’t care about stuff anymore..

Being anti-materialist, promoting the image that you are just not into stuff, is no different than the rich person who identifies himself with his wealth. The attention is still on the form. Being “non-materialistic” doesn’t make you special. Whether you have a lot of stuff or not is irrelevant. What counts is your ability to detach from it and to recognize that you really don’t own anything. You are not your stuff (or lack of stuff). You are a spiritual being on the road home to your Higher Self..

The secret to your inner joy and wealth is your spiritual intelligence, your ability to choose between spirit and ego. There is a beautiful three step process based on a book called The Song of Prayer from A Course in Miracles. In the first step, you give all of your goals, your problems, and your concerns to God as a gift. Once you have emptied yourself, you join in song with God. That is, you identify with your Higher Self and immerse yourself in its love. In this state you know that you are blessed and loved unconditionally. The third step is called the Echo. That is, miracles show up to remedy problems or that help you achieve your goals. The real miracle is your ability to let go and identify with spirit. This creates inner wealth, inner health, and inner love..

We are 100 % responsible for our lives. This means that opportunities abound for us to respond by shifting our attention to our spiritual identity. Responsibility is not blame. Responsibility is power and opportunity. It comes down to this: in this very moment, who is running your life? Is it spirit or is it ego? Is it love or is it fear? If you are feeling anything less than peace, your ego is having its influence. Remind yourself that you are not your body, not your situation. You are a spiritual being. In this lies your strength. In this thought you know that low self esteem, self condemnation, and blaming others are illusions. They are just stories you have told yourself..

Be the real you. If you knew that you were a powerful spiritual being, how would you stand? How would you carry yourself? What would be the expression on your face? What kinds of thoughts would you allow into your mind? If you knew that you were unconditionally loved, how would you act? What words would you use? What would be your tone of voice? This is one way you practice spiritual intelligence. You become aware, and then you become who you really are..

This awareness, understanding, and knowledge allows you to approach life with confidence. The essence of the successful use of the Law of Attraction is confidence. When you approach life with utmost confidence, your world responds. Confidence based solely on externals, or even based on knowledge of psychology, is fragile. Confidence based on spiritual strength is power..

This is the secret the world has kept from you–that you are God expressing as you. Each moment that you choose to live from your spirit is a powerful and expansive moment. Each moment you make this choice you influence others. You are a light. You are a blessing to the world..

Importance of YOUR Actions

Connecting the Grid, the Importance of your actions
Trine Cecilie Johansen

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.
