The Momentum for June 2014 is Ascension. By Patricia Diane Cota-Robles. June 1 2014. http://www.eraofpeace.org

Collectively, as Sons and Daughters of God, WE HAVE TURNED THE CORNER! This is the Victory our I AM Presence and the Company of Heaven have been striving for since the initial impulse of our fall from Grace aeons ago.

Since that fateful time, when we closed our hearts so we would not feel so much pain and literally blocked the flow of our Father-Mother God’s Love and our awareness of the Divine Feminine – our Mother God, our I AM Presence has been trying to reclaim the Path of Divine Love that is our destiny. Unfortunately, our fragmented, fear-based human egos have been successfully fighting tooth and nail to prevent us from remembering our Mother God and from accomplishing that Victory.

When we stopped receiving the full momentum of our Mother God’s Love through the Immortal Victorious Threefold Flame in our hearts, our human egos manipulated us into believing that our physical bodies are all that we are and that the Earth is an inanimate object that we have the right to use and abuse as we Will.  Read more…

Is Ascension Beginning? – Part 6


Posted by Steve Beckow and re-blogged from there to here

angel 33(Continued from Part 5.)

I’d like to give today’s instalment over to the description of a wayshower – we’ll call her “Maria” – of her own Ascension. Maria is now back as a gatekeeper bringing others through the Ascension portal.

My Ascension Journey April 3, 2014

by Maria

The Mother’s Clarity, Purity and Love is working its magic on me, washing away my old debris and lighting up the way. When I go deep in the ocean and stand in the Tsunami of Love, I can feel my pain washing away.

But there has been this piece of debris that was stuck, a piece of debris that wouldn’t dislodge from my screen so I asked this morning to journey into the debris ~ a big chunk of pain sitting in my throat, my throat chakra.

First I asked to see the debris in this lifetime. I was shown how as a small child, a lid was put on my crib at night to “keep me safe” so I wouldn’t climb out and wake up my brother or hurt myself.

I was shown how I didn’t understand this. There were a few other incidents that happened that I also didn’t understand, that made me angry, fearful and saying to myself I would not trust, and should not trust humans.

Then I saw how I did not trust myself ~ how I would give my power/my value/my worth away and how I believed in this way of being. They showed me how I was caught in the miasma of illusion.

So this morning I asked to go into this illusion ~ deep into the Pain. I felt it rise up in me, choke me. I saw images that I had been avoiding because they were so painful and with tears running down my face, I raised my arms and gave it all away.

I gave away the old Fear, Anger, Pain, Sorrow and Disappointment in myself, lodged in my very structure, to all the Beings around me. It tingled off my fingertips and turned into rainbows of Light, instantly transmuted.

Then I asked to be filled with light, with energy and lots and lots and lots of Joy, rainbows of Joy.

Energized, now I wanted to go into the distant past, one life in particular, a French girl in the early 1900’s, an aspect that had showed up in my heart in great sorrow. When she showed up, I hugged her and cried with her and wrapped her in a purple blanket and put her in a purple healing chair.

I kept wanting her to emerge from the chair and walk through the white waterfall of light into my heart but she wouldn’t.

So this morning I asked her to show me her pain and sorrow. She showed me herself as a small girl, all alone, with a suitcase at a train station, no family – abandoned. She showed me how big the world seemed to be, black and confusing. I asked her where her Mother was and she showed me a stern looking woman in a chair dressed in old-fashioned clothes, unhappy, not moving.

I sat down on the floor and invited this little girl to come and sit with me. I surrounded myself with babies and animals and my own little me from this life and said, “Come and have fun with us.” She refused and turned away.

I asked her why. She said she didn’t trust. That she was separated, abandoned and couldn’t find her way. That the world was big and scary and not loving and she was very, very sad and alone.

I asked her to trust me, that I was of the Light, that she could come home now where there is no separation. She slowly turned towards me and then ran and jumped in my arms with a big smile and a small laugh and said, “Now you get it.”

She said that I must remember that every connection with another is sacred, that we are all of God, that we are all God’s children. That when we are talking to any being upon Gaia we are talking to God. That we are all Perfect sparks of God’s Love and Worth.

She said if we can remember that and honor that, we can build a new way of being ~ Nova Earth ~ heart connections, knowing that every being is Sacred with their own connections to Source, Love, and Worth.

With that said, she took my hand and we walked into the waterfall of Light. Her adult self appeared in the waterfall alongside her. She was hunched over and carrying something but she stood in the waterfall and then wanted to come with us.

We walked down some stairs into a large cave with a fire surrounded by many beings. She gave me what she was carrying and motioned for it to go into the fire. It was a big old heavy dirty log. I took it and stood it up in the flames of the fire. The flames turned purple and my lower body heated up and light shot up through my body and out my crown chakra.

I was the light going up, up, up ~ a sensation of intense flying with intense breathing, a knowing to focus and to keep going, to keep breathing. After what seemed like quite a long period of time, I arrived at a place of brightness, what appeared to me as a beautiful white cloud where I was surrounded by Beings, my Circle of guides and many others in loving celebration, joy and excitement.

The celebration went on for a while and when it was over, I became a golden stream of light pouring down the path I had just flown up. My physical body filled to brimming with a golden glow, containing a sense of great wonder and awe that lasted well into the next day.

I have greater understanding now, an expansion in the Mother’s words, in Linda Dillon’s book, The New You, “The keys to heaven are trust and forgiveness, the doorway is Love.”

The trust for me is my Trust in God/Source and the forgiveness is my Forgiveness of everything that looks, tastes and feels like our separation from God/Source.

I Am Nova Being in physical form, connected to God/Source ~ self-love, self-worth.

Is Ascension Beginning? – Part 5


Future City 2918(Continued from Part 4.)

Archangel Michael has described the Tsunami of Love as a “precursor” to Ascension. But how is it distinguishable from Ascension itself?

The only difference appears to be in the degree of heat used to cook the soup. The Tsunami of Love seems like simmering and Ascension seems like a short, rapid boil. Here’s how Archangel Michael described the Tsunami in March of this year:

“Some have said, why use this word ‘tsunami’? Because we want you to know that it will penetrate all of you. It is only a destructive force insofar as it destroys pain, sorrow, grief, heaviness, greed, control, mayhem — the lower vibrations of what you have thought of as the old Third.

“It will wash you, but it will not wash you out to sea and leave you adrift. It will bathe you. Will it bathe you more strongly than the pink light that your brothers and sisters of the stars are bathing you and Gaia with at this very moment? Yes.  Read more…

The Love of Stuff

The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.

Nick Thorpe asks, “If Western consumer culture sometimes resembles a bulimic binge in which we taste and then spew back things that never quite nourish us, the ascetic, anorexic alternative of rejecting materialism altogether will leave us equally starved. Who, then, can teach me how to celebrate my possessions with the mindful, celebratory spirit of a gourmet?” { read more }

The One Bacteria That Causes Tooth Decay, Acne, Tuberculosis and Pneumonia Can Be Killed By This One Seed

Prevent DiseaseGram positive bacteria, which cause tooth decay, acne, tuberculosis, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Francisella tularensis, and leprosy are all killed by anacardic chemicals present in cashew nuts which are actually seeds.

Cashew nuts are actually the kidney-shaped seeds that adhere to the bottom of the cashew apple, the fruit of the cashew tree, which is native to the coastal areas of northeastern Brazil.

You have probably noticed that cashews in the shell are not available in stores. This is because these nuts are always sold pre-shelled since the interior of their shells contains a caustic resin, known as cashew balm, which must be carefully removed before they are fit for consumption. This caustic resin is actually used in industry to make varnishes and insecticides. Today, the leading commercial producers of cashews are India, Brazil, Mozambique, Tanzania and Nigeria.

Cashews are an excellent source of copper, and a good source of phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, and zinc.

Not only do cashews have a lower fat content than most other nuts, approximately 82% of their fat is unsaturated fatty acids, plus about 66% of this unsaturated fatty acid content are heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, similar to those found in olive oil. Studies of diabetic patients show that monounsaturated fat, when added to a low-fat diet, can help to reduce high triglyceride levels. Triglycerides are a form in which fats are carried in the blood, and high triglyceride levels are associated with an increased risk for heart disease, so ensuring you have some monounsaturated fats in your diet by enjoying cashews is a good idea, especially for persons with diabetes.

“Specialized” higher vibrational energetic streams have formed and aligned and are in process of infiltrating selected planetary “difficulty” points


Éireport Blog

eireport_logo_thumb_1 “Specialized” higher vibrational energetic streams have formed and aligned and are in process of infiltrating selected planetary “difficulty” points.

These energetic streams are coded for individual geographic grid points and create conditions which dissolve all potential of archon-created-and-aligned activity.

Such energetic streams are unique to each situation, and are uniquely formed for the Planet Earth-Gaia operation.

Although similar to 3D Earth-based “special ops” forces, these higher vibrational energetic streams operate purely in the 4-9D realms and are immune to any archon-ic detection.

Higher Gaia collective has called for this.

Beloved Ones,

The people of the Earth are all in the process of transformation on every level. Human life as they have known it is changing and from those changes comes ways of living that will be far better for everyone. It is not an easy time during this process and so there is a need for faith in the vision of a better world for all.

Certainly the outer world does not reflect the higher vision during these times as it goes through the changes but it is already a template on the higher planes of life. This is where all changes begin and then work their way into the physical. Humanity as a whole has chosen the changes that are occurring and some changes happen suddenly and others will take a longer period of time. Patience is needed for those of you who have been doing the work for many years.   Read more…

The Eternal Now

April 25, 2014 | By | Reply                     

Julian Websdale, Contributor
Waking Times

There is only really the Eternal Now and that Now exists in the beginning and also in the end of the standing wave that we call physical existence and evolution, which means that time is cyclical. The Now is the ‘alpha-omega’ of the cycle – as symbolized by the point where the symbolic Ouroboros snake is biting and swallowing its own tail. However, that Now is also the ‘zero nodes’ in the standing wave, and in all standing waves.

A ‘standing wave’ is a wave of energy that has become trapped between two points: when the travelling wave hits a point where it can go no further, it turns back on itself, becoming a two-way wave of energy-information.

tumblr_inline_mo8f4zt4fj1riiuei

This means that if the Now exists in any and all cycles and standing waves from the macrocosm to the microcosm, then it also means that the Now can be ‘accessed’ at any time along the path of evolution and this means at every instant during the cycles of our own lifetime or timeline.

How does one do this? Well that is what the shaman is attempting to do through sustaining conscious awareness in the hypnagogic trance state (the transition from the waking state into sleep), which can ultimately lead him to reach the point of enlightenment. Within the Now is all the information we need and it is also within us, which is why the shaman goes inside himself.

The Now is simply found within the ‘transliminal phase point’ of each and every cycle, ‘where’ and ‘when’ the positive crosses into the negative, and vice-versa, as in travelling waves, and also the nodes in standing waves. This also means that it surely exists within our own consciousness, which is also cycling – oscillating many times a second – and therefore the Now is really the moments in the cycle ‘where’ and ‘when’ we become unconscious.

tumblr_inline_mo8f6kkuzk1riiuei

The shaman attempts to become ‘conscious of the subconscious’ and in doing so he experiences and becomes the Now – like Jesus, who said that he was the ‘Alpha and Omega’. Of course this is a rebirth, and it is through this kind of rebirth in the Now, and during his lifetime, that the shaman then begins to understand the cyclical process, and how the life-death cycle is really a larger version of the waking-sleeping cycle. By accessing the unconscious in the waking-sleeping cycle via hypnagogia, one also accesses the unconscious knowledge of the life-death process.

As in the waking-sleeping cycle one is often unconscious at the point of death, and if so, then the cycle will repeat, with one having no knowledge of any previous lives, or indeed that one is creating one’s reality and is trapped in the cycles one is actually creating.

However, becoming conscious at the point of death, as one would in the hypnagogic state in the waking-sleeping cycle, one becomes aware, and with full knowledge of one’s condition, and so one becomes an Enlightened Master: sentient, superconscious. Everything collapses into the Now and one can choose either to exit the cycle, or to re-enter it – but with full knowledge of one’s condition, allowing one to create consciously and be able to awaken others.

It is interesting that the Mexican Nagals are called the ‘Now Shamans’, which also remind us of the ‘Present Moment’ associated with the ancient Egyptian god Aker, who like the Roman Janus, and also Baphomet, looks to the past and to the future.

Moreover it could be said that everything we are and experience Now – meaning our very existence in material reality – is being held in balance between these two waves – much as the electron is continually appearing at these wave centres and is held for a moment in time. Of course this phenomenon at the subatomic level, of millions and millions of wave centres, appears as built-up static objects at our level of perception and experience, So again, it could be said that even our very physical existence is at the ‘midpoint’ – but because we rely mostly on our left brain perceptions, which are related to the flow of energy-information moving from past to future, we are only having half the facts.

It should be stated, though, that the information in the future and the ‘goal’ of evolution itself, is not static but can be altered and changed, and that all the possibilities are given to us in that ‘return wave’; we make our choices subliminally based on our internal dialogue, which is why the patterns we experience will tend to repeat and stay the same. Evolution is also a cyclical process of which we are subconscious (female and related right-brain) as well as a linear one, of which we are conscious (male and related left-brain).

It can be seen then that the phenomenon of physical reality – its actual creation at every point in its fabric, and so its very existence – depends on the friction between Yes and No, the two-way flow of energy information we find in the standing wave, and that it manifests and exists in that friction.

Deathbed Visions, DMT & Consciousness – Reflections on Life and the Beyond


April 25, 2014 | By | 2 Replies

                   

Psychedelic VisionAndy Dilks, Staff Writer
Waking Times 

In recent years in the West there have been a number of studies in which people on their deathbeds are asked what it is they most regret about their lives. An Australian palliative nurse, Bronnie Ware, conducted one such study of patients in her care – she spent several years looking after a range of people in the final 12 weeks of their lives and kept a record of their dying epiphanies, publishing them in her book, The Top Five Regrets of the Dying. Ware spoke of their astounding lucidity and identified five common themes which recurred over and over. These were:

  • That they had lived their lives true to themselves.
  • That they hadn’t worked so hard.
  • That they had the courage to express their own feelings.
  • That they had stayed in touch with their friends.
  • That they had allowed themselves to be happier.

What emerged is a pattern of conformity – both to those around them and wider society – which ultimately prohibited them from leading a truly satisfactory life in which their own dreams and ambitions were fully realised. From the treadmill of everyday work to the way in which we adopt our persona to suit the demands and expectations of others, these regrets are as predictable as they are a sad reflection of the skewed priorities which tend to dominate Western culture. At the same time they reflect something of a pessimistic approach to viewing life and death, focusing on the absence of something positive instead of an appreciation for the goodness that actually existed.

By contrast, Japanese documentarian and film-maker Hirokazu Kore-eda approached the idea of reflecting on life from a different perspective, asking hundreds of subjects from all walks of life – many of whom were not facing imminent death – to choose one cherished moment from their past which defined their lives. The result is a whimsical celebration of life in all its beauty and diversity, which also demonstrates how much people tend to fictionalize their past, with rose-tinted nostalgia heavily influencing their reminiscences. Choosing a single most cherished moment also proves to be considerably more difficult to do than listing one’s regrets, suggesting that negativity has become engrained in mankind’s mindset, as if anxiety and lamentation has become a driving force behind the species.

Kore-eda compiled the interviews and conducted many more for his film After Life, which straddles both documentary and work of fiction, and the result is a film which suggests the immanence of the human experience, with many themes and concepts emerging that a variety of different cultures would doubtless share. So too with deathbed phenomena – the paranormal experiences and visions of those on the brink of death – there is a unity across cultures, and indeed throughout history. Frequently these visions of heavenly creatures and deceased relatives have been considered evidence for the presence of a spirit realm and even as proof of the after life, comforting visions of a place beyond the familiar temporal realm.

The following account from Chaz Ebert, the wife of the popular American film critic Roger Ebert, highlights the nature of deathbed visions in a contemporary context:

“The one thing people might be surprised about—Roger said that he didn’t know if he could believe in God. He had his doubts. But toward the end, something really interesting happened. That week before Roger passed away, I would see him and he would talk about having visited this other place. I thought he was hallucinating. I thought they were giving him too much medication. But the day before he passed away, he wrote me a note: “This is all an elaborate hoax.” I asked him, “What’s a hoax?” And he was talking about this world, this place. He said it was all an illusion. I thought he was just confused. But he was not confused. He wasn’t visiting heaven, not the way we think of heaven. He described it as a vastness that you can’t even imagine. It was a place where the past, present, and future were happening all at once.”

Not surprisingly, when mainstream science first came to examine such phenomena in the early 20th century, they were rationalised by the materialistic mindset as being nothing more than hallucinations – a rationalisation which continues to the present day. There is some merit to this interpretation, as anyone who has taken psychedelic drugs can attest to.

Hallucinogenic drugs such as psilocybin and DMT are capable of manifesting alien realms and entities which for the user feel every bit as real as experiences they might have in sobriety; with DMT, visions of otherworldly beings are incredibly common. Given that the neuronal function of the brain at the point of death is impaired, experiencing a stage of cerebral hypoxia, it is entirely plausible that these visions correspond to these changes in brain activity. This would certainly parallel the work of Rick Strassman and his studies into DMT and the near-death experience, in which he posits that the pineal gland releases huge doses of the chemical at the moment of death.

But new theories have emerged in recent years which may finally take us towards a true reconciliation of science and spirit, in which the deathbed visions of people and places are neither the imaginative products of an ingrained cultural and historical perception of an afterlife nor chemically-induced hallucinations, but real phenomena which actually exist.

Harvard neurosurgeon Dr. Eben Alexander, recently interviewed on Waking Times, conducted extensive research which challenged the orthodoxy of reductive materialism and offered a radical new interpretation of the way in which consciousness functions. Rather than being a product of the brain, Alexander posits that “consciousness is at the core of an unfolding reality” and that beyond this there is a conscious force which exists external to the physical body. Additional research in the field of consciousness by Stanford University Professor Emeritus William A. Tiller has indicated a powerful realm between particles which is heavily influenced by human consciousness. This latent energy, which interacts between the conventionally-measured molecular/atomic substance is apparently spurred into interaction by intentions projected from the mind.

A number of prestigious scientists have long held to the theory of the multiverse, building upon the lack of predictability in quantum mechanics as the starting point for an ever-expanding array of parallel universes. Dr. Robert Lanza, in his book Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Key to Understanding the Nature of the Universe, put forward the notion – long held in religious and spiritual beliefs – that consciousness continues on after the death of the physical form. With consciousness the driving force behind the existence of the universe, Lanza believes that consciousness never actually dies, and that we only perceive it as doing so because of the identity people have with their bodies. Beyond this, Lanza suggests that consciousness can travel between universes at will – just as our bodies are thought of as the product of stardust (and there is solid mainstream science supporting that idea) so too are our “souls” intrinsically linked to the proto-consciousness which forms the fabric of space and time.

A recent study from Boston University revealed that belief in immortality may be hard-wired into the human brain, and while this study focused primarily on highlighting the cognitive roots of religious belief, an interesting aspect of the findings points to these beliefs originating not in culture and upbringing, as was initially assumed, but as intuitive concepts – natural drives rather than nurtured opinions. But perhaps this implicit awareness is more than mere fantasy – if the theories of Alexander, Tiller, Lanza and an increasing number of experts in a variety of fields prove to be correct, it would mean that humanity would have to radically revise its views on death itself, and deathbed reflections on hopes and regrets could become almost redundant.

Rather than validating the claims of religious institutions throughout history, confirmation of consciousness as a phenomena which both shapes the universe around us and transcends the physical realm would forge a new era of metaphysical enquiry. Albert Einstein famously predicted that “the religion of the future will be a cosmic religion” – that future may already be with us.

Aisha North Manuscript of SurvivalThe Constant Companions: A Short Update on the Energies – April 25, 2014, channeled by Aisha North, April 25, 2014 at http://aishanorth.wordpress.com

As many of you have already noticed, the energetic activities over the last few days have been nothing if not on the heavy side, and this will indeed continue for quite a while yet. We hear the groans of discomfort already, but let us hasten to add that you will feel a lightening in your bodies as these energetic injections continue.

For you are opening yourselves more and more to these emissaries of the light, and as such, it will be as if your body automatically manages to adjust and rearrange itself in such a way, this prolonged period of heightened exposure will become more than bearable.   Read more…

A SAUL MESSSAGE


re-blogged via PAO

by John Smallman

If you are having difficulty with forgiveness ask for help and for clarity.

i am free.1

To leave the illusion behind is humanity’s divine destiny because humanity’s destiny is divine. It has ensnared, enslaved, and entranced you all for far too long and your unwillingness to release yourselves from it is all that holds you within it. You have the power and the capability to do so because you are divine beings, and, because it is your will and God’s, you will release yourselves.

Nevertheless, you are conflicted within yourselves by the intriguing but fanciful opportunities with which it tempts you, and by your desire to find the real meaning in life, a meaning that overwhelms and shatters the unreal dreams that seem to be your constant companions – wealth, security, a lover, and a beautiful environment in which to enjoy them. But the dreams seem so real! This is because you are very powerful beings, and you have made them seem very real, so real that they hid and continue to hide Reality from you, as was your original intent. Hence this intense inner conflict and your endless confusion.

However, your divine Father knew that your infatuation with your unreal environment would not last, and that it would bring you untold pain and suffering, so He, at the moment that you built it by imagining it within your brilliant mind, instantly provided everything you need to release yourselves from it and return Home. What He provided was the inextinguishable inner flame of His Love that calls to you constantly to awaken.

1000857 3905717458907 995046715 n

It is that inner flame that has you questioning the meaning of life and which also makes it very apparent that the meaning that you have been seeking – security, survival, wealth, and power over others – is insane not only because of its divisive nature but also because you are seeking for it within the illusion. And that insanity terrifies you, everyone is untrustworthy! Therefore you must constantly protect yourselves, so you build armies and weapons that you then are unable to resist using, further adding to your pain and suffering.

However, you have become exhausted by the trials and tribulations with which the illusion endlessly presents you, and you are becoming aware, more and more of you daily, that the onlyway to resolve your issues, your differences, your conflicts is through intelligent and harmonious cooperation. When you do that you listen to one another without judgment, allowing each to be themselves instead of attempting to change them into the kind of person you think – in your almost total lack of wisdom – that they should be. Then realization dawns that truly there are no differences, you all want only “the peace that passeth all understanding.” And that of course is Love, the divine energy field in which all of creation has its eternal existence.

1069806 668587136515997 264342734 n

It is a state from which you have never departed because there is nowhere else, but you have imagined and clung tenaciously to an illusory state, and you are now in the process of releasing your hold on it, of allowing yourselves to see that it is unreal, a sham. You have a saying: “If it seems to good to be true then it probably is.” Throughout the eons of the illusion’s enticing siren song to you, you have been chasing within it for something that has seemed to good to be true – safety, security, abundance, and bliss – but how could that possibly be found within an illusion, especially one in which betrayal and deceit are endemic?

Forgiveness is the way out – of yourselves for being so misled and misguided by it, and of others for their apparent betrayals of you. In Reality there is only Love, and anything in conflict with or opposition to It is unreal. However, you do need to forgive. One of your wise elder statesmen (Nelson Mandela) remarked that resentment is like drinking poison and hoping it will kill your enemies. So, until you start forgiving and releasing any judgments or resentments, you are just consuming poison and making yourselves truly miserable, possibly even making yourselves extremely ill. And, as most of you are probably well aware, modern psychology suggests that to be able to forgive is essential for your general health and well-being.

If you are having difficulty with forgiveness, due to pain inflicted upon you, unjust judgments made against you, or for any other reason, then when you enter your quiet inner space ask for help and for clarity. Frequently clarity is lacking in one’s perceptions when a desire to withhold or refuse forgiveness is experienced. Remember, all the experiences undergone in your physical bodies are aspects of the illusion; the suffering that is undergone is illusory because you are all asleep and dreaming. When you awaken into Reality all pain, all suffering, all injustice, all betrayal will have dissolved because they are part of that illusory dream. Clarity will show you this now by reminding you of your true nature – you are a being of Love who is One with God – and you will be able to relax into forgiveness, whereupon you will find an inner peace that maybe you have never before experienced or have long since forgotten.

In the spiritual realms we are constantly at your service, you have only to call on us with sincerity and we will show you the way to embrace forgiveness with love and compassion for the one you wish or need to forgive – yourself or others – thus leading you into a state where the stress of resentment that was confining and controlling you just dissolves. We are here for you in every moment, and we want only to see you awaken into the eternal joy that is your natural state. We know that forgiveness is the quickest way for you to release your hold on the illusion because it cuts through all the other ties and bindings so that there is nothing else to prevent you from sinking happily into God’s loving Embrace.

So call on us and tell us that you sincerely want to embrace forgiveness, and instantly you will feel the warmth and acceptance of the field of Love that at all times envelops you. It will confirm for you that you are indeed a being of Love who was momentarily lost in the fog of the illusion, a fog that is now dispersing and allowing you glimpses of the brilliance that awaits your inevitable awakening.

With so very much love, Saul.

Although matters on Earth are still in a state of change, the outcome will not lead to worse situations. We are thinking primarily of the confrontation taking place in the Ukraine. Not so many years ago it would most likely have lead to a state of war. Due to the change in consciousness levels and the higher vibrations reaching you, solutions are sought that focus on a peaceful conclusion. Peace will soon come to Earth and you will be able to focus on rebuilding peaceful relations between countries. Over a period of time most countries have become a mix of different races and cultures, and it is already greatly helping your civilisation to live in peace and harmony.

 

Around the world the last acts of separation are being played out and once the dark Ones are removed life will become more peaceful and rewarding. There are younger generations who are more evolved and waiting their chance to bring in new ideas for a more joyous living. The time is arriving when leaders will come forward to replace the dark Ones whose days are numbered. Such souls have experience that they can call upon that would ensure Humanity takes a great step forward into the New Age. There have been times in your history when peace has enabled much progress to be achieved. However, such periods have been a pale reflection of what the Golden Age will bring to you. They will return and you will have what has been referred to as the “1000 years of peace”.

 

Most souls have reincarnated many times on Earth to experience duality. Some are still experiencing what is to them a higher level of consciousness, whilst others are simply raising theirs to a level previously reached. Souls on Earth are a mix of those at so many different stages of evolution. However, as you progress away from Earth the different levels of consciousness are clearly defined, and souls of a lower level of vibration cannot normally enter those that are higher. The exception is when they are accompanied by a Higher Soul who will share his/her level of vibration with them. You will have so much to discover and learn anew, and it will be exciting times. Until you reach the higher level of consciousness, you are very limited as to how far you can go. It is your present level that keeps you in a state of limited consciousness.

 

The more you open up your consciousness to consider other possibilities, the quicker you will increase your vibrational level. At present you live in what could be termed a dream world, one that all souls have helped to create. It will not be until you have raised your present consciousness levels that you will again become the free Spirit that you really are. However, as with all experiences, it expands your consciousness levels and that will ultimately carry you forward. We look at you with complete admiration and love, as we see souls that have willingly taken on duality knowing that it could pull them down. Yet, you have boldly taken up the challenge, knowing that you are never left totally alone to find your way back to the Light.

 

As souls that are moving out of the lower dimensions, you are adding invaluable experience to your total knowledge. Somewhere in the near future it will enable you to help other souls, who can learn through your experiences. Whether you have lived or served the Light or dark makes no difference, as you will have a wealth of experience to offer others also on the path of evolution. We have often made the point that you are All One, and it is true that what each of you do effects the whole. As a collective of souls you help each other to progress, because as you do so the whole of Humanity moves forward.

 

Consider that as a result of your many lives upon Earth, you have acquired knowledge and experience of many different cultures. At a subconscious level it affects your present day living, and should make you more tolerant of other people’s beliefs. Many are living with a limited if not false understanding of the Truth. It will come out very soon, and perhaps knowing that you are more than just your body will be found to be a profound and revealing statement. You are glorious Beings of Light that are in an advanced state of being, and in the future will be able to “think yourself” into whatever form you desire to further your evolution. With it comes the freedom to travel where and when you desire.

 

I am SaLuSa from Sirius, and always pleased to make this contact with you. It has been a long and hard road for all of you, but that is now changing for the good. I leave you with my Love and Blessings.

 

Thank you SaLuSa,

Mike Quinsey.

 

The Metaphysics of World Collapse

Waking Times

“…movement and change are actually prized for their own sake…outward action…fleeting…dispersion…a tendency toward instantaneity, have for its limit a state of pure disequilibrium, which…would coincide with the final dissolution of this world; and this too is one of the clearest signs that the final phase of the Kali Yuga is at hand.” – Rene Guenon, ‘The Crisis of the Modern World’

The French metaphysical scholar Rene Guenon (1886-1951) is considered to be one of the greatest of all in the western world. Guenon was no mere occultist. He was an authority on the Sanskrit teachings, Sufism, Taoism, and many others including western esoteric traditions. ‘The Reign of Quantity’ is his masterwork and was the turning point in my own understanding as he convinced me to accept the Cycles of Time as reality.

Guenon’s ‘The Crisis in the Modern World’ was written in 1942 (three years before my own birth) and describes our current times with prescient and increasing accuracy. In the chapter on ‘Knowledge and Action’ Guenon explains in his razor-like French precision that the modern world, its sciences and philosophies, its very foundations have become completely disconnected from any metaphysical truth. The reason for this is our ongoing Kali Yuga descent into matter and limited five-sense perception, which blocks our understanding of the Invisible Realms that are the support and substratum of this entire universe.

The people who have become prominent in all fields of modern life simply are no longer capable of understanding the real underlying metaphysical principles that are the substratum of the temporal illusory earth we stand upon. Thus the various and always changing theories that become the basis of our lives are profoundly flawed, unsound, and subject to collapse. Rene Guenon: “It is impossible in any way to separate knowledge from the process by which it is acquired.” The intelligence that is now held in high esteem is of the lowest order — regardless of how many corporate global policy institute think-tanks these modern era PhD priests are ensconced within

True knowledge consists in ‘identification’…

Guenon: “…for all true knowledge essentially consists in identification with its object.” This is the traditional ancient way of immersing consciousness to reach wisdom knowledge and is precisely what the shamans still today practice. In the west and spreading around the globe, this process of intense identification is overlooked and “…they admit nothing higher than rational or discursive knowledge, which is necessarily indirect and imperfect, being…reflected knowledge.” One is reminded of Plato’s shadows in a cave being taken as real.

This ‘lower type of knowledge’ has become more and more valued ‘only insofar as it can be made to serve immediate practical ends.’ Our modern western culture has become absorbed and obsessed with action, scientific and mathematical theories that produce profitable results, and have denied everything that lies beyond the grasp of their own limited five-sense perception. These servants of the corporatist scions are blind to the fact that acts thus disconnected from metaphysical truth degenerate — “from the absence of any principle, into an agitation as vain as it is sterile.”

Sleepwalkers

We still know very little about the mysteries of our universe, beyond what produces short-term profit at the expense of Mother Earth. Reflect on the countless theories, scientific and others that have come and gone like ill winds. Arthur Koestler, the now forgotten genius whose works were highly honored not so long ago, wrote about this in his 1959 book, “Sleepwalkers” in which he chronicles the parade of scientific theories that have been discovered, lauded and discarded.

“The muddle of inspiration and delusion, of visionary insight and dogmatic blindness, of millennial obsessions and disciplined double-think…may serve as a cautionary tale against the hubris of science. … The dials on our laboratory panels are turning into another version of the shadows in the cave [Plato’s analogy]. Our hypnotic enslavement to the numerical aspects of reality has dulled our perception of non-quantitative moral values; the resultant end justifies the means ethic may be a major factor in our undoing.”

Surfing the Surface

Concurrent with our descent into matter has come the need for ‘ever-increasing speed’ and ‘ceaseless agitation, for unending change.’ We have become addicted to surface effects. Recent observations, one might say warnings, from Jaron Lanier and Nicholas Carr reveal that surfing the Internet is reconfiguring the human brain. The evidence is conclusive. We are lost in what Guenon back in 1942 called “dispersion in multiplicity, and in a multiplicity that is no longer unified by consciousness of any higher principle.” This external multiplicity is merely the temporal ‘appearance’ generated by the eternal Real, the One substratum beneath all appearances. And yet the best and seemingly the most intelligent are consumed in its quantitative analysis, a bottomless pit of frantic change for its own sake and profit.

Guenon:  “…in daily life, as in scientific ideas, it is analysis [of external multiplicity] driven to an extreme, endless subdivision, a veritable disintegration of human activity in all the orders.” Nothing is of value that cannot generate profit, while the wisdom that is born from silent contemplation is ridiculed. Thus we live in an intellectual environment suffused in “the inaptitude for synthesis and the incapacity for any sort of concentration.”

High Frequency Trading

What could be more symptomatic of this dispersion into multiplicity, addiction to speed and what Guenon terms an obsession with ‘instantaneity’ than the recent revelations regarding HFT, high frequency trading in the markets. Michael Lewis’ 2014 best seller ‘Flash Boys’ explains that the process of buying and selling have been transformed into a high speed mechanism in which those with the biggest fastest computers and most sophisticated algorithms will always be winning, the ‘front runners’ over any others. The markets have been rigged by the impenetrable wizardry of the science of algorithms. Sophisticated slight-of-hand advantage smacks of criminality and contributes to the collapse of fragile democracies around the planet, allowing the worst to rape the earth.

Guenon in 1942: “It is therefore to be expected that discoveries, or rather mechanical and industrial inventions, will go on developing and multiplying more and more rapidly…and who knows if, given the dangers of destruction they bear in themselves, they will not be one of the chief agents in the ultimate catastrophe.”

Sovereign Debt Collapse does happen…

As odd as my interest in finance may seem to many, I am convinced that the collapse of our current economic system is indeed ‘one of the chief agents’ in the catastrophic events that occur at the close of any Kali Yuga. Complexity theory expresses the notion that complex systems must inevitably collapse as they become more complex and unstable. We are approaching the edges of instability in the realm of fiat money, sovereign debt default, trillions of dollars in derivatives, and an increasing loss of confidence in the world’s reserve currency. Indeed as many far more knowledgeable and brighter that me have publicly stated, confidence is all that remains between our safe secure world and a complete breakdown of civilisation. Once this ‘confidence’ is gone no one really knows what will follow.

Are we being indoctrinated by the globalists to accept a new reserve currency? The Special Drawing Rights, the SDRs created by the IMF are waiting in the theoretical wings to rescue us from financial chaos and oblivion. But who created this instability? In his most recent book ‘The Death of Money’ James Rickards says that the Federal Reserve does not understand that the recent unlimited printing of trillions of dollars, known as QE quantitative easing, can be a perilously irreversible process. The reckless creation of fiat money (along with now $600 trillion in derivatives) may produce a total loss in confidence not only in the dollar, but also in the financial institutions themselves. Once this loss of confidence occurs, a new system must be created to replace the abandoned one.

This entirely new system, often called the New World Order, will be a planetary financial system which has been in the plan stage for centuries, but now actually appears to be gaining success mostly due to the advances in technology, meaning the global access which computer technology allows. Is this all ‘bad’ as the conspiracy researchers have warned us? Surely there is an argument for a more fair system that does not solely serve only one country.

Perhaps.

What worries me is the heinous effects we have already seen that result when corporations are allowed to plunder – (can there be another better description?) – resources in far away lands with impunity. The multinational corporations are poisoning the planet and her oceans. I need not enumerate the plethora of irrefutable evidence, anyone can see the curious disturbing neglect in Fukushima, the consequences of desperate fracking to local water supplies, the obscene greed of GMOs, the insidious ongoing dispersion of endocrine disrupting chemicals EDCs, the insane buying of world water rights, and more. Here clearly we see the results of a loss of individual financial sovereignty and remote control global governance.

While I do recommend that you read James Rickards in online interviews, YouTube, or his books, I have come to believe that his job is to indoctrinate the more financially keen into the IMF’s plan to implement their SDRs and complete control of global finance. In ‘The Death of Money’ Rickards says that when the dollar ceases to be the world reserve currency there are three probabilities: the SDR will replace the USD as world money, the possibility of a gold standard, and the threat of social disorder. I think this threat of social disorder has been carefully inculcated into our consciousness by many bizarre events, which normal peaceful law-abiding citizens have wondered at. Are we being warned? Accept the global system or face the frightening consequences. Anything will be better than lawless mad-max chaos and disorder. But will it?

A done deal?

Rickards says that the substitution of SDRs for dollars as the global currency is now in motion. A ten-year IMF transition plan has been ‘informally endorsed’ by the United States. What? So, we are told this is a done deal. No one has asked the public, there has been no democratic vote, no consensus from we the people. In a rather causal unexpected sentence, Rickards calmly says that money riots would be (his words) ‘squashed quickly’. I see. Resistance is futile indeed. This suppression of money riots is already legal because of a little known legislation passed in 1977, the IEEPA, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act. Many of the rather frightening rumours floating around the Internet begin to make sense in light of this impending transition. Follow the money, indeed!

Rickards tell us that the IMF is buying time, some say in desperation. Thus the quantitative easing may go on, but he cautions the reader that the plan for a peaceful transition to SDRs or even gold may not occur before the collapse — and because of the prevalence of high frequency trading, collapse of the financial markets will be likely come flash-crash fast.

Money as Water

Money can be understood as the ‘water’ necessary to business and trade; and financial institutions, banks & bonds, are the conduits through which money flows. Rickards says that the large banks, such as Goldman Sachs will be instrumental in the future distributions of the new planetary reserve currency, the SDRs. Thanks to Mike Taibbi’s courageous journalism, we have fully understood how deserving the Vampire Squid is of our complete trust. James Rickards’ publishing company Portfolio Penguin also happens to have published three books that were finalists for the prestigious Financial Times/Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award.

Edward N. Luttwak explains in ‘The Rise of China vs. the Logic of Strategy‘ that the “highest echelon” of the U.S. Treasury, for example Timothy Franz Geithner, “is staffed almost entirely by former or future employees of the leading financial firms” that are sensitive to Chinese enterprises as future clients. According to Luttwak, these financial power elites have no responsibility for or indeed any intellectual interest in the condition of the U.S. manufacturing sector and the subsequent loss of jobs, which they regarded as “uncompetitive and not worth having” — and their willingness to bend to Chinese demands for the sake of making cheap capital available to private finance, has also allowed a tsunami of technology, including aerospace technology, innovated by American enterprise to be given to the Chinese.

I wish I could believe that all this is a rather benevolent and necessary transition. Certainly the obviously very bright and astute Benn Steil of the Council of Foreign Relations makes rational intelligent calming practical arguments somewhat in favour. Steil is extraordinarily knowledgeable and a wonderful writer. He says many in the USA will not be willing to undermine the US monetary sovereignty. However a lack of confidence in a dollar, which is used globally, will undermine the ability of the Federal Reserve to control interest rates, inflation, and contain any domestic financial crises; and therefore inevitably the power of the FED will decline to the point that the sovereignty of the USA becomes, in his words ‘meaningless’.

Unanswered Questions

Can it be that globalization is something that recurs on all planets in their various stages of social and financial evolution, as they move from tribal & clan, to nation states, to global interests? Yet the question remains: Why allow the destruction of the planet herself, the contamination of her oceans, our fields & land, and the air we breathe? Who turns away from planet Earth’s future for mere profit?

This incessant frantic descent into ever increasing multiplicity and complexity is, as Rene Guenon says, the result of “a pretended intuition modelled on the ceaseless flux of things of the senses, far from being able to serve as an instrument for obtaining true knowledge, represents in reality the dissolution of all possible knowledge.”

An intelligence that has been disconnected from the immutable imperishable substratum that lies beneath ‘the curtain of each atom’ [Mahmud Shabistari’s Sufi poem] is necessarily precariously unstable and inclined to collapse. Without metaphysical wisdom, each temporal ‘fix’ our elitist servant PhD’s come up with will only lead us closer to the final moments of this Kali Yuga.

Our sole refuge is a higher consciousness and to individually reconnect with the God essence that dwells within All. Nothing ever dies and as the Bhagavad Gita tells us, ‘The Wise do not grieve.’ Rene Guenon would not have been surprised to witness our current predicament. Guenon offers us one last profound comfort in the final sentence of his brilliant ‘The Reign of Quantity’: “…it can be said in all truth that the ‘end of a world’ never is and never can be anything but the end of an illusion.”

“[We are] made of the same stuff of which events are made…The mind that is parallel with the laws of Nature will be in the current of events, and strong with their strength.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson, from the essay ‘Power’ in “The conduct of Life”

Agenda 21 : Food is The New Gold. Land is the New Oil.

Over the last decade world grain reserves have fallen by at least a third and that decline looks set to continue. For the last half of the 20th century overproduction was the order of the day. Huge grain surpluses, butter mountains and milk lakes dominated the news.

During this period the United States had a farm programme where land lay idle to prevent even more surpluses, this provided a cushion against shortages, the land could be planted up if the surpluses fell to levels considered to be too low. In the UK land was left fallow and green manured to enrich it for the following season. The crops were rotated and the harvests were generally very good. In addition there was the carryover: The amount of grain left in the massive storage silos at the time the next crop is harvested. Other western nations had similar systems.

1965 is a good year to show how the system cushioned against disaster. In 1965 the Monsoon in India failed. The United states shipped a full fifth of its grain harvest to India which averted a potential famine. due to the amount of surplus in store the incident had a minimal effect on grain prices on the world markets.

There were occasional spikes during the period of 1950-2000, but the effects on world prices were a short lived thing. The weather was usually to blame and after a bit of a ‘blip’ everything settled down when the amount of idled land and the amount of food commodities in store were announced.

In 1950 the world had a population of 2.5 billion souls. By 1986 world demand for grain was rising rapidly due to an ever increasing population and the prices were starting to rise. In an effort to keep a surplus and to reduce or at least to stabilise the prices, the land idling programmes were reduced in both the United States and the UK, with other countries following suit until by 1990 most agricultural land that could be farmed was farmed.

Posted: 23 Apr 2014 12:05 AM PDT

by Dr. Mercola
MercolaOf all the foods Mother Nature provides, few foods offer more of a “botanical bonanza” for your health than garlic. Garlic is a bulbous root closely related to the onion, mentioned in historical documents dating back 5,000 years—before its fame wafted into the rest of the known world.

Speaking of wafting, garlic’s nickname “stinking rose” is well-deserved due to its undeniably pungent aroma that some find objectionable, but others find intoxicating.

Numerous studies show garlic’s amazing health potential in nearly every area of your body, from clogged arteries to gangrene to preventing insect bites and ear infections. There is even evidence that garlic is able to help slow your aging process. When it comes to this magical bulb, what’s not to love?

Garlic Epitomizes a ‘Heart Healthy Food’

Like so many other complex plant foods, garlic contains a wide range of phytocompounds that act together to produce a wide variety of responses in your body. Garlic is rich in manganese, calcium, phosphorus, selenium, and vitamins B6 and C, so it’s beneficial for your bones as well as your thyroid.

Garlic also helps your body cleanse itself of heavy metals, such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and arsenic. [1] Green Med Info has also assembled a list of studies demonstrating garlic’s positive effects for more than 150 different diseases. [2] In general, its benefits fall into four main categories:

Saint Germain ~ Ascension is YOU

Picture from Méline in Merlins Cave, April 2014
Conveyed through Méline Lafont
Méline: I was writing about Ascension a few days ago from my I AM Presence perspective when after a few lines I felt my Masculine Self coming through. And so Saint Germain has spoken.
Greetings my dear friends,
Please do know that Ascension is not an event that is happening on a certain day or a specific date, like for example a birthday party that is taking place on a certain date and that if you are too late on this party that you cannot participate in its joy of the moment, or that if it is even possible to be too late for it.
Ascension is not an event that can be postponed or something that could not go through, for it is an ongoing process that takes place every single day, every single second of your existence. It is your cells, your being, your every now moment of change and integration, realization, growth, insights.
Ascension is taking place within you every now moment of your existence, it is in laughter, it is in joy, it is in bliss, it is in love, it is in meditation, participation in love, it is Self Love, acceptance, allowance, inner knowing, wisdom, freedom, expansion, it is all of the beauty within you reflected on the outside of the world. It is the knowing of, and the realization that you ARE GOD, that you are Divine, that you are consciousness, that you are All That Is. It is the embracing of all of your multifaceted features and the being that you are in the now and in all of your existence.
Ascension is liberty, respect, your inner temple and sun into this being. It is all that you have dreamed of and yearned for and it is YOU. So as YOU are every day, every now moment in this existence, as you ARE existence and consciousness… it is YOU that you yearn for from the heart and so that makes your Ascension in its entire being. BE your Ascension by Being, and Ascension will be every now moment. It will never be too late nor will it ever be postponed nor canceled for it is always YOU as YOU are infinite and existing. If you see that Ascension is you, you are already free.
Free yourself from the slavery of thoughts and limitations that you have set for yourself and there you will meet your Ascension and come to the realization that you have always been ascending, every single now moment. You want it too fast, you want it tangible with proof; it is an outside affirmation which on the same token you affirm to be outside of yourself for you search it not within you. How can we prove something to be, if everything you seek for to be already IS?! It is already in you and it is you! How must we prove this to Be if it is you and you are a living being of consciousness!? Does that not prove enough my friends?! That you exist and that if you exist, Ascension exists.
Do not let yourself be distracted by the waiting position of others to come and do it for you. There is no such thing my friends. There is only being and everything else that comes not from being is distraction, is separation and is learning through fractals and experience, which is action and separation. Action is splitting the core into a fractal to experience the flow of this action, which we call an expression and experience. Which is fine, of course. It is there to teach you and to bring you back to where you came from in the first place.
My friends, allow the core of your being to be that what it is you seek. Give it your love and the attention you need, for it is all in there and no place else. All the beauty on Earth and the outside reality are wonderful teachers and provide experiences. Enjoy those but do not get entrapped in them or you become those. See through the mirror of yourself what it is that makes you the one that you are in the now, what it is that you are so eagerly searching for and the answer will lead you the way to the point where you need to start over in a whole other way, to look at it from a different perspective. Learn and teach, know and BE.
We are in the midst of Ascension and it is an ongoing flow, not a one day event of such sorts. It is the flow of your growth and Being so allow, sit back on your own ride and trust your inner Self wholeheartedly. You grow every day and this is what makes Ascension so tangible in your reality. No one can do it for you as you are the ONLY one who can instigate and lead your own Ascension process.
It is my heartfelt desire to once again stress the fact that it is about Self mastery of the you within you and that it is those who you call us, the Ascended Masters, Galactic family, Archangels and so on, that will assist in what you bring forth and create from within: from the being that you are. As without your own beingness and creation there is no change or assistance to be done from our part in the Heavenly realms. It is you that bring the changes from within through being and it is us that assist you in the realization of what you bring forth.
You can see it as a Magical spell that you bring forth after mastering and learning your Magician skills, and it is us sprinkling the magical dust to make it happen even stronger after you spoke your spell. The magical dust can be compared to all of the portal activations, sun template activations, cosmic light and encodings, Solar Flares, cosmic events through alignments and shifting, all orchestrated with us/ by us and by the Source of All that Is. Change is within you as it starts from you and from nowhere else. Do not sit and wait for events to take place and take matters into your own hands by being the Master that you ARE.
Quantum consciousness is a major key in this all and it is ready for those who have achieved a certain level of Self mastery, which implies a certain consciousness and a knowingness of “Is-ness”. There can only be “delays”, “cancellations” or whatever you wish to name it by creating this yourself through taking this for your reality. When you feel that Ascension is not happening, it means that you do not see it within yourself and so you do not sense this and certainly do not see it reflected in your outer reality.
Look more into that area of yourself and think about it; is it truly another outside Source that is stopping YOUR ascension process? Let us leave it with these last words, it will be an already enough hectic ride for many and my heartfelt Love and compassion for you all is what I wish to convey to you all, for it is out of tremendous Love that I bring this message to you. I wish for you to see this now and to look deeper within you.
My Love, Grace and infinite compassion, Saint Germain

7 Places You’d Never Expect to See a Garden


As aspects of our food system continue to be gobbled up (or forced on us) by corporate interests, having a garden has become a revolutionary act.

Regaining control of your seeds, soil, fertilizer and pesticides is a powerful thing. Gardening affords us the right to eat foods grown with the least amount of human interference. Extra produce can be shared with those around you, strengthening community ties. Garden plants also provide a place for important species–like bees and butterflies–to thrive.

But I’m sure you already knew that gardens are pretty awesome. What you might not have realized is that in an attempt to enjoy all the wonderful benefits of gardening, people have become pretty creative about where they’re planted. If you thought gardens only existed in backyards and wide open fields, get ready to think again.

7 Places Youd Never Expect to See a Garden

1 . The International Space Station

NASA Veggie

The International Space Station will get a fresh upgrade when the Vegetable Production System (Veggie) arrives via the SpaceX Dragon CRS-3 mission. Veggie is a deployable plant growth unit capable of producing salad-type crops to provide the crew with appetizing, nutritious, safe and fresh food and to support crew relaxation and recreation. It will serve as a new space station facility as well and will provide a venue for future plant growth research.”Based upon anecdotal evidence, crews report that having plants around [from previous space studies] was very comforting and helped them feel less out of touch with Earth,” said Gioia Massa, a project scientist at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. “You could also think of plants as pets. The crew just likes to nurture them.”

2. Train Stations

Like many metropolitan areas, open space is hard to come by in Japan. That’s why the East Japan Railway Company has begun converting its station roofs into community gardens, called Soradofarms. “Although it’s pricey to rent a plot, many families are taking advantage of the opportunity to grow their own produce and even use the community garden as a park for picnics and recreation,” writes Bridgette Meinhold for Inhabitat.

3. Meatpacking Factory

Once empty, many urban factory buildings are leveled to make way for new development. Well The Plant (a vertical farm in Chicago) certainly counts as new development, but it’s keeping the old facility intact. “We’re working to show what truly sustainable food production and economic development looks like by farming inside an old meatpacking facility, incubating small craft food businesses, brewing beer and kombucha, and doing it all using only renewable energy that we make onsite,” explains the website. “By connecting outputs of one business to the inputs of another, we are harnessing value from materials that most people would throw away.”

4. A Floating Barge

In 2012, Brazilian artist Maria Thereza Alves used 300-year-old seeds salvaged by the sunken hulls of trading ships to bring a piece of history back to life in the form of a floating ‘world garden,’ reported the Daily Mail. The seeds, typically native to the ship’s port of origin, were ‘incidental cargo’ used to provide stabilizing weight. Various plants are now being grown on the converted grain barge including Rocket, Squirting cucumber, Marigolds and flax grass.

5. A Bus Stop

Originating as a guerilla garden project adjacent to a bus stop in South London, The Edible Bus Stop has now grown into a larger project that hopes to transform neglected sites across London’s transport network into valuable community growing spaces. The gardens grow a combination of edible and ornamental plants, and are maintained by community volunteers.

6. Chicagos OHare Airport

Last year officials from Illinois’ most popular airport announced the official opening of the O’Hare Urban Garden, the first-ever vertical aeroponic garden inside an airport terminal. “The 928-square-foot, soil-less venture will help supply fresh produce and herbs to the airports restaurants, which will participate in a unique type of indoor CSA,” reports EarthTechling.

7. A Truck Bed

Desperate for a way to garden in New York City, filmmaker Ian Cheney took a good long look at the 1986 Dodge his grandfather had given him upon college graduation, and decided to give truck farming a whirl. The design and installation of the Truck Farm was simple, and took less than a day once materials had been collected, all for less than $200. Of course, Cheney made a movie about the process, which has since inspired a national fleet of truck farms.

THE EXCITEMENT continues this week, and into next as well. Starting today, Sunday the 20th, through Wednesday the 23rd, the four planets in the Cardinal Grand Cross are at their closest proximity by degree — which means the configuration is technically most exact (and strongest in influence) over these four days.

We can imagine a grand cross (also called a grand square) as four planets sitting on four sides of a table, each with a different agenda and a different style of communicating. For this grand cross, sitting at the table are:

Uranus, the liberator, the rebel, the planet that inspires awakenings in consciousness and stirs restlessness with the status quo, especially anything that feels like a limitation or expectation. Uranus is in action-oriented Aries, which means our feelings of dissatisfaction very easily are turned into action for change. Depending on where Uranus is transiting through our birth charts, we may be feeling the need for change in our jobs (6th house), our relationships (7th house), our home environment (4th house), or elsewhere.

Pluto, the transformer, the intensifier, the planet that brings powerful desires to the surface as a vehicle for necessary change. Pluto is in goal-oriented Capricorn, giving an extra level of intensity to our ambitions and desires to make a difference. Wherever Pluto is transiting through our charts reveals the area of life where we are releasing old, outworn methods and opening to greater empowerment — perhaps in how we communicate (3rd house), in our actual career or vocation (10th house), or through our use of our time and other personal resources (2nd house).

Jupiter, called “the greater benefic” because the effect of this largest planet in our solar system is amplification — which can be a positive or a negative, depending on what is being magnfied! Jupiter is in emotion-centered, security-oriented Cancer, amplifying our needs for family and home, and also magnifying our feelings of sensitivity and vulnerability. As Jupiter transits our charts, we may be putting on an extra layer of protection/weight (1st house), feeling a higher level of inspiration and creativity (5th house), or wanting to spend lots of time with friends and our greater community (11th house).

Mars, the activator, the planet that often acts as a triggering device for the influence inherent in any configuration. Mars carries the energies of initiation, assertiveness, and pro-activity. However, Mars is currently retrograde (going backward) in conciliatory Libra, which throws most of our typical interpretations of the planet’s effects out the window — or at least restrains them somewhat. Instead of prodding us to act impulsively on our deeper desires and needs, retrograde Mars in Libra is requiring that we first find a new level of internal balance and cooperation between the different aspects of our beings. With Mars transiting our 12th house, we may find that balance through meditation and dreamwork; in the 8th house, through shamanic journeys and psychotherapies; or in the 9th house, through seeking the wisdom and intuitive knowing of our higher selves.

THE TENSION of a grand cross configuration comes from the differences between the signs involved:

  • Aries is a fire sign, motivated primarily by the need to assert and know Itself.
  • Opposite Aries is Libra, an air sign motivated by the need to create relationship and harmony.
  • Squaring (90 degrees away from) those two signs is Cancer, a water sign motivated by the urge to protect and care for.
  • Opposite Cancer is the earth sign Capricorn, motivated by the need to achieve tangible success.

The different elements associated with each sign tell us a bit more about each one and how it moves through life. In general, fire signs such as Aries act from inspiration; air signs such as Libra act after mental deliberation; water signs such as Cancer act based on emotional responses; and earth signs such as Capricorn act based on what makes the most practical sense.

THIS IS WHY I feel the most successful navigation of this week’s grand cross will come through staying in balance. Clearly, none of these signs is “the bad guy” that we need to stay away from. Each has its gifts, and its own way of perceiving what is most important.

The problems come when we get out of balance, which usually means we also start drawing on the negative qualities associated with each sign. When Aries is out of balance, we are aggressive or angry. When Libra is out of balance, we are indecisive, people-pleasing, or  passive-aggressive. When Cancer is out of balance, we are defensive, shy, or smothering. When Capricorn is out of balance, we ignore the emotional needs of ourselves and others, focusing only on the end goal — “the ends justify the means.”

DURING this grand cross week, as we look around us, and especially within us, we are likely to find both the positive and the negative expressions of each of these signs manifesting. If — or perhaps when – we do, we can check in with our own energy systems and see where we are out of balance, and which planet/sign pair is needing attention.

  • If we are angry and restless (Uranus in Aries): Where are we negating our needs and desires? Where are we living by “shoulds” rather than according to the truth of our beings? And, what physical activity can we engage in, to help move the anger out of our bodies?
  • If we are resentful and caught in power struggles (Pluto in Capricorn): What attitudes are we holding that keep us in situations where we are “less than?” What internal strengths do we need to claim and fully own, that are the opposite of what we are exhibiting when we get caught up in those power struggles? And, how can we release the patterns that keep us powerless, and find new ways to accomplish our goals?
  • If we are defensive or feeling fearful and unsafe (Jupiter in Cancer): How can we truly nurture ourselves and attend to the needs of our fearful inner child, without falling prey to the fear itself? How can we open our hearts in situations when we feel compelled to close them? And, what is needed to reinforce the core of faith and hope within us, so that we know that we really are safe?
  • If we are anxious about telling others what we want, or find ourselves acting in passive-aggressive ways (Mars in Libra): How often do we say “yes” when our gut is saying “no?” Are there ways in which our relationships with others are built on a false harmony, rather than on honest sharing? How can we deepen our relationship with ourselves — the self that is actually our Most Significant Other — so that we have the courage and self-worth to be authentically ourselves in all areas of our lives?

AS WE look at each of these planet/sign pairs in turn, and realize that all four of them are knocking on our door at the same time, it’s clear why this is such a powerful time. Imagine that the table where these four are sitting is actually the dining table in our house, and we’ve invited them in for a meal. And now — NOW — we must find ways to engage them, to bring out their most positive traits.

Ultimately, we want to integrate into ourselves the positive qualities that these four planets represent — liberation, empowerment, optimism, and courage. And we want to create our lives so that we partake of equal amounts of what the signs represent — self-interest and independence balanced with cooperative relationship, and a healthy inner emotional life balanced with productivity and achievements in the outer world.

Next week — Solar Eclipse! The ride continues.

Blessings,

Pam
