The Right Questions

OMA through Frankie Z Avery

Frankie Z Avery
Frankie Z Avery

Knoxville, TN

So the question is: What questions should a person who wants to walk a spiritual path be asking? Interestingly, people will say they are seekers or that they want answers. Yet if the entire universe were laid out before most people, all they would accept is what they already hold true. Anything else would be ignored. Anything else would be avoided as a conspiracy of ignorance or rightness so they would not have to let go of what they hold dear, they would not have to reach out with an open heart, open hands and an open mind. If you are on a path of spiritual evolution, one of the first questions to ask of yourself, or of a mentor if you have chosen one, is: Are you prepared to release and detach yourself from your belief system? Now an answer isn't necessarily required at the moment, but are you ready to detach yourself from your consistencies? People have a tendency to do the same thing over and over again. Whatever you learned or interpreted by age three and a half is what you repeat the rest of your life, unless you have chosen to awaken to a new way. In effect a spiritual path is not a path of learning; it is a path of awakening.

Are You Prepared to Let Go?

Do you remember OMA speaking about the path of the heart versus the path of the head? The head will always take you into victory or defeat, into challenge and obstacles to overcome. It will take you into want and deprivation, and then on to the victory of overcoming both. You will go down another slope to want only to get to victory. For all intents and purposes, the path of the head is a much more exciting path because you can always quantify and qualify yourself as a success or failure. The path of the head is a path of judgment. It is the path of quantity and quality, of hierarchies and labels, whereas the path of the heart is one of being awake and alive and aware with each breath you take. So the first question that one should ask of self, or be asked, is: Are you prepared to release that which you think you believe and put your trust in?

Choices for 2009

17 January 2009, Seattle, Washington

Greetings, dear ones, I am Kryon of magnetic service. I've said those words so many times, some before believing Human Beings, some not believing, all of whom I know, every single one. The truth is that I am a sister, a brother and a piece of God. I'm not something to be worshipped any more than your sister and brother on Earth are. I am family, and the only reason for these communications—and the only reason I would be here at all—is to sit at your feet and to wash them and to give you information about what you've done.

There has never been a time when this situation between us has been different. I always come in love, ready to give you appropriate information. Oh, there have been many who have made a big deal of this saying that channeling was impossible or was not really happening. Some say that this event is just the antics of a man who is pretending. You may say it's a fraud, a fake. I'll tell you this: It's going to be hard to convince the one who's going to go away with a healing today, for his healing will be real. The colors many are seeing are real too.

The Right Time to Dismantle Old Encodements

Amma through Cathy Chapman

23 January 2009

Well, good morning, dear one. We are here at the perfect time for you.

Good morning. It seems like I'm on the cusp of an opening of deeper service.

But you're not on the cusp. You have already entered into it. You have entered into it and you have answered your call. You have moved forward into your life and you are opening yourself more and more. We thank you for that.

But there remain limiting beliefs and fears holding me back.

Let's talk about that just a little bit. I'm going to tell you some things that, if you don't know on a conscious level, you definitely know on a deep level. They will ring true. On the conscious level, you are aware you are an infinite being. You're not always satisfied with acting out that awareness, but you are aware that you are an infinite being. Those times when you are in meditation, you travel to places and have experiences that would make many people in the "normal" world wonder whether or not you were sane. Correct?

Awaken with Power Symbols

Isis II, Lord Kuthumi and Lord Serapis Bay through Rae Chandran

Rae Chandran

81+ 42-373-3717

Greetings. This is Isis II. At this fascinating time in Earth's history, humanity has been provided with many tools of self—discovery. Understanding yourself is the greatest work you can do, and understanding yourself and expressing your soul's truth and love is the main reason for being born. Humankind has been lost for a long period of time, and during this amazing time, the Creator has given humanity many gifts that will help in awakening humans to their true selves. Today I present one of the tools for the awakening humanity: happy creations.

Balance This symbol has been appropriately named "balance" because it is the heart of human evolution. When you are fully balanced with the spiritual and the material, then you are truly living the life you have come here to embody. Balance needs to be achieved in everything we do: every experience, every thought, every emotion and every action. The wise one has said that the middle path leads to enlightenment. On a higher level, balance has to be achieved between the male and female energies: balance with the environment, balance with Mother Earth, balance with our biology. When we are not in balance, then life is like living on a seesaw. There are certain times you are up and certain times you are down, and you are constantly in this swing of things, never having control of either. Also, when you are not balanced, you are easily influenced by outside circumstances that can dictate your life.

Ascension Dialogues: The Mind

Sarrinn with the Ancients and the Brotherhood of Light through Daniele DeVoe

Greetings, dear lightworkers! So much is being written and discussed about the changes that are happening in your world now, yet few of you realize the distinctiveness of this experience. Are you aware that you have arrived at a moment in your world's evolution that is totally and fully unique? Humanity, after thousands of years of experiences in the physical, has evolved to the time when almost all experiences available are repeat experiences.

We have written in these channelings many times before about the purpose of each soul that chooses life on Earth—the purpose to live life while experiencing growth. Since growth comes from new experience, in order to continue the original mandate of your own soul, change is essential and change is also inevitable. The definition of ascension is: The process of leaving one frequency of experience and ascending to the next, and the next and the next. Implicit in that definition is the requirement of new experience. Also implicit in that definition, and the actual process, is the desire to grow. And have you been taught that desire is a base emotion that should be avoided at all cost, lest you totally halt your spiritual growth in a never—ending quest for selfish fulfillment? How sad!

Is Your Perception of God Holding You Hostage?

Higher Self through Carolyn Gervais

We would like to discuss the Earthly game in a way that might open you to another aspect of who you are as a physical being. Each of you has a persona or ego that is as unique as your perception of what God is to you personally. Though you may often feel blind as to where your perception of God is taking you, on inner and outer levels, in fact you are in charge of how your life unfolds.

Before you came to Earth, you fragmented into many aspects of yourself. These fragments make up the wholeness of what might be called your "soul group." Some of these fragments incarnated while others serve as guides and teachers on the non-linear side of the veil. When coming into human form, it is customary to forget most, or even all, of who you are as an essence of light. But the truth is, you have not really forgotten as much as you believe you have. Instead you live to express all the variations of the creative Source—God—in human form, and in other realms as other aspects of physical forms and non—physical forms. The many variations of human forms that you put on are called, in your Earthly terms, "past lives," "reincarnation" or "incarnations."

Beloved masters, it is a time of accountability, a time of testing, and it is decision time. Each of you must decide whether you will believe the doomsayers who have dominated and controlled you for thousands upon thousands of years, and who have kept you enslaved in various ways through fear and intimidation. You have been coerced to believe that you must accept certain specific teachings as God's only truth: You must fear God, for the Creator is a God of wrath and a God of judgment who created a horrendous eternal fire of damnation for those who have not been saved through dispensation by an earthly appointed representative of God. Or will you choose to remove your earthbound shackles and reclaim your God—given power and spiritual sovereignty? Are you brave enough to step out into the unknown as you put us and our teachings to the test? You are being given an unprecedented opportunity to become a student of the advanced ascended master's teachings, which in past ages were reserved for only the elite and most advanced disciples. A divine dispensation has been declared, and all you have to do is say "yes" to your soul self so that we can assist you in the transformation process as we gently guide you along the path of ascension.

Practice Sacred Breathing

This grand opportunity is being offered to those of you who have steadfastly stayed the course, striving to become worthy vessels for the full-spectrum Metatronic light of creation. You are the transducers of this wondrous elixir, and it must flow through you, the lightworkers, before it can be radiated via the sacred breathing techniques down into the core of the Earth and out into the world. This rarified gift must come into and through human vessels that have been prepared to accept, integrate and share the Creator light. It must be mixed with the Earth essence as well as human essence and loving intention before it can be radiated out into the world and made available to those human beings who have stepped onto the path of en—light—enment and are following behind you. Have we not called you sentinels of light?

Spiritual Evolution

Glenwood Springs, CO 81602

Beloved students, I greet you in love, and I welcome you. At this time it is particularly important for every one of you to stabilize mindfulness as your basic mental condition. This is a time of profound clarification in the world at large. However, it is probably wise to realize that many people on planet Earth are less than thrilled with the exposure of corruption and the transparency of clear intent as a way of managing this world than are most of you. Thus, to spend well a year of mindfulness, it is helpful to remember two things: why you took birth in the first place, and who-or what-you are seeking to serve at this time in Earth's history. Now it would be wise, not to mention exquisitely helpful, to dedicate all your spiritual progress to planet Earth.

As for the part about why you took birth, your life and spiritual maturity is unfolding in a time when Earth truly needs you. In observing all the changes that are inevitably a part of the planetary path now, you may notice that they arise with a great deal of chaos-or so it appears. What better time for the entrance of great ones? What better time for all of you to discover your true nature and become the great ones this planet is invoking right now? It is probably a good idea for you to remind yourselves daily that this planetary experience is one experience. While it may be seen through billions of eyes, still, it is one experience. Gaia, the spirit of Earth gave each of you a form. It is her magnificence that allows matter to coalesce as it does and presents the wonderful display of flora and fauna that grace Earth.

Solutions for a Small Planet

Mother Earth (Gaia) through Pepper Lewis

Pepper Lewis

2305-C Ashland Street #320
Ashland, Oregon 97520

A few months ago, sandwiched in between all of the questions posed to Gaia, she put forth a question of her own. Her question, posed in the form of a problem currently facing humanity was: What is the most probable future of the automobile given that there is an overabundance of cars in almost every corner of the world and taking into account a gradual movement away from fossil fuels? Here is Gaia's answer in its entirety.

The most pleasant time to consider a problem is before it becomes a problem, or better yet, when it is not your problem. Another good time is when a variety of solutions are present, and such is the case with the automobile. It is a good idea at the outset of any exploration to acknowledge that the subject of inquiry, or problem, is also part of the solution. As another example of this concept, we might note that although diseased cells might pose a serious problem, the intelligence inherent in healthy cells might provide a solution. Therefore, as we begin our exploration, please take a moment to acknowledge just how important an invention the automobile has been, particularly during the last fifty years. The automobile has facilitated individual mobility, increased humankind's ability to make job-related tasks easier, furthered the exploration of remote places and much more. It will continue to be humanity's favored tool of transportation for a few more years, but not too many.

7 March 2009

Greetings, I am Juliano. We are the Arcturians. As the ascension gets closer, we are focusing our energies and our teachings on the Arcturian Stargate. The stargate is coming into alignment with the Earth, just like the Earth is coming into alignment with the Central Sun. There is a beautiful triangle of fifthdimensional etheric light that aligns or creates a beautiful alignment with the Central Sun, the Arcturian Stargate and the Mother Earth.

In fact, many of the starseeds have returned to the Earth at this time for the specific purpose of experiencing the alignments that are before you with the Arcturian Stargate. We have compared alignments before with the eclipses of the Sun and the Moon. Our example has been this: If you were a student of astronomy and you knew that there was an eclipse of the Sun of great magnitude and great power, then you would easily travel to South Africa, to the North Pole, to the South Pole—or wherever it was on the Earth that would enable you to receive the highest perspective and the highest energy from that eclipse. In the same way, you as starseeds would want, and in fact have, decided to reincarnate into the Earth at this time, in part, to experience the alignment with the Central Sun and the alignment with the Arcturian Stargate.

You Are Being Called to Come Forth

Expanded Consciousness through Miriandra Rota

PO Box 81
Troutdale, VA 24378-0081

14 March 2009

There comes a time when all beings realize that there truly is something better, a better way of living, of feeling, of being. And when that moment arrives within the consciousness, we can say that something monumental has occurred. You might call this moment one of "despair," yet we call this moment a "grand awakening."

You might be wondering how your moment of despair—your moment of realizing that you are unhappy, unfulfilled, or unloved—could possibly be grand in any manner. Yet we say this, beloved one: When you recognize what is, when you objectively view your own manner of living within the cause and effect, you are residing within a moment of power and of choice. And when you recognize that you are unhappy, unfulfilled or unloved, you are then residing within that moment of great compassion not only for yourself but for all of humanity who feel the very same way. You may weep and you may feel as though your life is not worth living, yet deep within you also know something else.

Re-minders from Home

The group through Steve Rother

Las Vegas, NV 89133

Greetings from home. Dear creators of heaven on Earth. You are closer than you ever imagined. Your dreams are about to come true in many ways. We tell you this in the midst of what you call a "crisis" that is not a crisis. It is the natural evolution of where you are going. We told you we would speak of an unusual event that will take place between July 21 and July 22. It is not possible to predict the exact moment or hour it will take place, as humans continue shifting. Let us explain what is taking place in concepts we have already presented so that you can see this cosmic event.

Humans are evolving at an incredible rate. It is causing many difficulties on many levels. The biggest challenge on planet Earth is that you no longer have much of the time lag that protects you from your own thoughts. Because you are creators, each and every one of you, the moment you have a thought, it happens. Because of that, the fear that can be held in the hearts of humans becomes the greatest challenge at this point in your evolution. Your creative powers are increasingly getting stronger. Yet your attachment to the old energy of light, dark and polarity is also creating a negative situation because you can create your greatest fears more easily than ever before. This is happening in many places where people are not aware of their own powers, and it will be a critical part of what is happening on these two days. A measurement will be taking place that is not the typical type taken of planet Earth. Instead, it will be a measurement of the collective vibration of humanity, which is being measured for a specific reason.

The Unique Window

The Council of 12 through Selacia

Santa Monica, CA

Your world is now knee-deep in economic meltdown. Every day you have reminders of the ailing financial systems of key countries, such as the United States. On a personal level, you likely have your own reminders of the fragile nature of the economic infrastructure of your now global society. You have learned to depend upon these financial systems and to expect that they would always be there in the familiar forms.

To be sure, it's a big wake-up call to discover that what you had thought reliable and strong is indeed crumbling beneath your feet. There is a natural feeling of loss associated with this, regardless of how you are personally affected right now. This feeling of loss can be overwhelming, and it can trigger a sudden episode of depression. Even if you don't typically become depressed, you can feel like a black cloud is obscuring your happiness, hopes and dreams.

Spiritual Rx for Anxiety and Bipolar Disorders

The Psychologist through Robert Shapiro

16 February 2009

Anxiety Disorder
Greetings. Now, anxiety first. Anxiety is not caused directly by one's environment or the memory of something excruciating but is always caused by some internal conflict. The conflict might be associated with worries, possibly not even one's own; worries that one has inherited from a loved one perhaps, or more likely from family upbringing where conditioning took place—whether intentional or not, it does take place. And also the factors of one's surroundings come in to it as well, even if one's surroundings are relatively benevolent. Some people are just more receptive than others, and you all know people like this.

Conversely, you might also know people who do not appear to be receptive, and in some cases really are not so very receptive at all, though most people are more receptive than they may suggest by their behaviors. So there are many reasons, and this is why psychological professions have flourished in your time, because people are looking for mental understanding and mental disciplines that can help to bring about a means to live with this disorder. And by disorder I am referring to something that is simply difficult for a person to live with to the point of being overwhelming There are some situations where anxiety is warranted. After all, if you are living in a war zone, a certain level of anxiety is actually helpful, because it will make you much more alert to your surroundings. Of course, misjudgments can take place as well, and this is often the situation in war, as any wellversed and experienced soldier knows.

The Amazing Superhighways of your Brain:
Ninety Seconds of Life

Master Kirael through Kahu Fred Sterling

Your local brain, the one inside your skull, has two hemispheres. I like to call them the "right brain" and the "left brain." You can amplify your brain energy by prana breathing and bringing the energy through the crown chakra and into the pineal gland, which would then activate your brain stem cells. The channel discovered the brain stem cells while he was doing a healing on himself. He had been transferring stem cells from the heart and other organs into the brain, but he wasn't getting the result he wanted, so he checked out the brain and there they were—brain stem cells. He also discovered that all your major organs have their own stem cells. The liver has liver stem cells, the kidneys have kidney stem cells, the heart has heart stem cells, and so on and so forth. The implications of this are profound. You can amplify the energy in any organ in the body by activating its stem cells. However, once your stem cells are activated, you have to decide what you want to do with them; otherwise, they will just sit there.

You can get these brain cells into the activity of your mind by doing the exercise I just talked about. Concentrate on pulling energy into your crown and into your pineal. As your brain stem cells are activated, you will feel your eyeballs start to tighten up a little bit. Feel your brain expand as the stem cells come alive.

The Alchemy of Phi Crystals

Archangel Metatron through James Tyberonn

August 2008

Greetings! I am Metatron, lord of light. We once and always greet you, warmly and lovingly, in this eternal moment of Now. Indeed, we sense each of you personally at the specific time that your eyes read these words. So another moment brings us together, uniting truth, understanding and wisdom through the matrix of the unified field and combining geometric thought patterns with desire and awareness. And so do all things come together in the same way. For all thoughts, all things and all beings are electromagnetic representations of consciousness, of manifestation and of all that ever was or ever will be.

Some things, some thoughts and some creations travel at more rapid speeds—more accelerated frequencies—within the matrix. Others are denser and travel slower, more sluggish, but all the same they seem to arrive in perfect order, aligned with the nature of their creation and creatorship you see. For the universe, the cosmos is perfection itself, regardless of any dimensional interpretation or perception of it. In a mechanical sense, in quantum tangent, all things in the unified field act precisely and perfectly according to their nature and their architectural integrity. Yet some are created at higher frequencies, at higher vibratory resonance than others. So we continue speaking about the crystalline field, a field that is of major importance to the planet as the ascension draws near.

The Levels of Healing

Golden Arrow through Alexandra McColm Ward

PO Box 5505
Blue Jay, CA 92317

Well, greetings to you, greetings to you indeed. Truly it is a pleasure for us to be here with you, to communicate with you, to interact with you, to commune with you, in this way. Communing in the way of bringing knowledge, bringing knowing, bringing truth to you and to your life, to the life that you now are living here on this planet called Earth, in this physical body, in this physical expression, knowing that living life and experiencing life never ends. You, as a physical being, drop the body and you, as a soul—as a Source being—exist always in all realms in all ways.

Forgetting and Remembering

You are here in this lifetime, at this particular time, experiencing what you individually set out to do. You made agreements—you made contracts with individuals, situations and experiences before you ever incarnated. All that you have set out to do and are now experiencing moment to moment, you planned it all. You set it all in motion with just a thought. A thought that you were going to come to this realm that you now call planet Earth. You came to this realm to experience the physical bodily expression of your God—source self. And along the way, in that experience of living in this body, of experiencing emotion, of experiencing all that is attached to your life, you have remembered and forgetten the reason why you chose to come at this time. There is no right or wrong about remembering or forgetting. There is nothing right or wrong about it at all. That is what the Earthly, physical expression is all about. And so you find yourself in this body, experiencing all that you experience whether it is exhilaration, excitement, fear, illness—all that you set up for yourself.

DNA Function:
The Divine Map Of the Omni Cell

The New Ascended Masters through Maurene Watson

Maurene Watson
Maurene Watson

The omni cell function explains why your guides, your newly braided oversoul aspects for the new Earth universes, are now all you indwelled, in instant connection within your radiant lightbody. This replaces the need to look for communication outside your inner creator/supreme self, living within and in an access to all consciousness through one divine cell. This also explains why your new perception or intention reality produces telepathic or instant manifestations, as your source self no longer travels through a polarity cell matrix energy, to live your love as its desire. If you mastered an emotion or a skill, then you don't ever have to go through it again if you don't want to, leaving room for new adventures and abilities.

You must accept your divine worth to leave behind any old world games or stories, so your brain field can shut off old matrix Saturn counsel communications giving you scrambled or false signals, and not coming from deep inner first contact. But first let's review the matrix so you do not backtrack through it, for your omni cell now remembers that the divine plan is not the matrix. You can walk out of the old matrix now because you remember that one cell can operate your whole orb field.


Aim for Love

Kelly Canull

Imagine this: You have a bow and arrow in your hand. Your arrow is painted a specific color, such as red. Far ahead you see a target. You shoot your arrow at your target. As you shoot your arrow toward your target (stating your intention) your red arrow takes off toward the target. Now, imagine that on its way, it picks up some yellow, green and blue colors. These colors represent what life brings to you as you are moving toward your target.

Now, your arrow is just about to reach the target. As it does, one of two things happens: The target—the intention you set—when you reach it, appears the same as it looked when you aimed your attention toward it; or the target looks completely different because the green, yellow and blue colors you picked up totally changed the color of the arrow; therefore, the end target was different as well.

A Most Benevolent Spiritual Path

Tom T. Moore

If you're like me, you're working twice as hard for less money. But there are glimmers of light off in the distance, so keep requesting most benevolent outcomes (MBOs) for your work and your relationships with your coworkers, sales and in your personal life, just as I do. Since my film and TV program distribution business is international in scope, I can tell you that this is a worldwide recession.

Even though times will be tough all year, you can take the high road by requesting MBOs each day. And don't forget to say each day, "I expect great things today, great things tomorrow, and great things all the rest of this week, thank you!" You'll find some magical things start to happen when you say this each day. You're creating you own reality. And with that opening, let's just discuss the spiritual path that you will embark on when you begin requesting MBOs. You'll find that your awareness increases and the "veil," as it is called, lessens in its density. What happens is that you're raising your vibrational rate.


Learning Curves

Kathy Crabb

Mars and Venus blast through Aries side by side all month long. On a mundane level, the pair represent raw, impulsive, sexual energy that demands immediate action on behalf of the self, though this may work at cross purposes as well. Together, Venus and Mars might translate into crackling tension, bold creativity, spirited action or pure anger. On a higher level, though, Mars and Venus together symbolize the sacred marriage—the coming together of the masculine and feminine-to create something wholly new and integrative. These mundane and sacred levels of acting are not mutually exclusive however. With conscious effort, you may find you can transmute lower impulses into higher forms of self-expression with this pair. Be aware of what instinctive conflicts you feel this month, especially ones that come on quickly or fiercely. Then focus on how you can bring the conflicting energies together for creative and pioneering work that advances the soul instead of diminishing it.

For much of the month, this creative work is helped by Mars and Venus's involvement in a number of learning curves. Early on, Venus's square to Pluto may continue to uncover important information about changes needed for growth and change in relationships. The pair are also helped-through much of the month—by quincunxes to Saturn, which will bring measured thinking and cautionary tales that can help guide the more impulsive actions coming from the Aries corridor. This is not necessarily action-focused energy. It may actually disarm the Aries pair with fear and loathing, so don't expect Saturn to push you to accomplish and complete tasks this month. Rather it is more a guide to the big picture and to understanding how to integrate the conflicting energies afoot.

Back to the Good Old Ways

Michelle Karèn

Mercury turns retrograde on May 6 until May 30 between 1°44' Gemini and 22°52' Taurus. We are being asked to reaffirm our values. As we become clearer on how we make money and where we place our priorities, both material and nonmaterial, we are likely to come up with great lucrative ideas that we had left aside or never completed in the past. As a lot of old ideas resurface, we could feel much restlessness. At this time, many people from our past are likely to come back into our lives. Travel could be fun and informative. It enables us to revisit concepts and places that we had forgotten about.

Saturn is retrograde until May 16 between 15°08' and 14°57' Virgo. These two degrees are symbolized in the Sabian symbols as follows: "in the zoo, children are brought face to face with an Orangutan" and "a fine lace handkerchief, heirloom from valorous ancestors." Our biggest dreams as well as our worst fears are now coming to haunt us. As we face and embrace our shadow, we become aware of the gift of our true spiritual heritage, thus realigning our lives with our highest purpose.

The Quality of Mercy

Phoenix, OR 97535

"The quality of mercy is not strain'd,
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest:
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes..."

—William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

Recently I heard a spiritual author say, "Our subconscious mind stores and processes 1,000 percent more information than our conscious mind can." What I gathered from her quote is that we can experience, on an emotional subjective level, so much more than can ever be expressed by the conscious mind. When we have a revelatory experience, words escape us. And when we feel gratitude, discover new dimensions or grieve the loss of a loved one, the emotion is inexpressible. Some of our greatest authors, actors, artists and musicians have given shape to the inner dimensions of the heart, but they are rare and exceptional to those of us who struggle with expressing our human-ness.

Introspection and Self-Evaluation

Rhonda Smith

May (25/7) is a month for introspection, as you go within and seek the truth of you and your vision. You don't have to retreat into a cave; however, spend some time "thinking about it" before you take action. These energies will give you the opportunity to see beyond the veil to what is hidden, whether that is within you-we are good at fooling ourselves-or within others. As you do this selfexamination, don't forget to pat yourself on the back for how far you have come and focus on your mental energies in conjunction with your intuition to blend all of this into a positive force. You are completing your preparation to begin manifesting all parts of you and your vision in July.

May 1 to May 2, 2009 (53/8)

This is going to be a week of challenging situations that may be intense. It is possible that something or someone will come into or go out of your life. It's important to stay balanced now so that you can accept your responsibility, and you'll need strength and courage to do this. You'll be given an opportunity to deal wisely with whatever you encounter. You start with an easy-flowing day that leaves you open to examining anything that comes up regarding balancing the truth of your experiences, then you move to a day of reaping the rewards of past accomplishments while preparing for the next stage. Your goal is to truly understand freedom and the responsibility that goes with it and to manifest this into your life.


Essences of Nature: Now Is the Time to Take Your Stand

Mary Ann Antenucci

Rhonda Smith
Mary Ann Antenucci

You can't always get what you want—but you get what you need! How much time and effort is spent wanting a new life, wanting more money, wanting more opportunity, wanting more love, wanting more fun and just plain wanting? How much time and interest is focused on how something is going wrong or "I can't do this" or "I can't do that" and "I never get where I want to go!" or "Everything always goes wrong!" and "Why me?"

What if we woke up one day and accepted the realization that maybe we should focus on what we want to choose rather than what we don't want to choose? Notice the energy shift in just reading or saying this sentence out loud: "I choose to experience    !" Just do it! "I choose to feel    !" Feel the internal change that comes from having a choice in everything you do.

Self-Discovery Activities for Children: Cuckoo Clock Adventure

Lynne Cox

As you get ready for bed, you hear the crickets chirping outside. You take a moment to listen to their song. While you are listening, you begin thinking about Angel. Your conversations with Angel are so regular now that you immediately begin talking. "I have a feeling that it is an adventure night." You wait a moment and sure enough, Angel replies.

"That sounds like a great idea. How about an adventure filled with lots of mystery and imagination?"

With that idea, Angel asks you to sit down, close your eyes and imagine yourself stepping onto the softest cloud. As you take your first step onto the cloud, it reminds you of being in a foam pit. It's very soft and yet it is strong enough to hold you up. You can feel the breeze on your face as the cloud floats through the air. After a few minutes of floating, you feel the cloud slow down and stop.

Feng Shui: Current Applications of Ancient Wisdom

Annie Konovitch

Deeper into the Bagua

Welcome to the vision of the ancients as seen with modern eyes. We have an opportunity to seize that which is our birthright by using knowledge brought to us by a venerable master, Professor Lin Yun. This bringer of sacred wisdom offers us access to Eastern practices that began in centuries past and continue to evolve to this present day.

Create Wealth Transformations with Royal Purple

The art of Black Sect Tantric Buddhist (BTB) feng shui is comprised of many things, including a process of personal chi cultivation and a method of enhancing one's personal space by using the perspective of the Bagua (See Figure 1). The Bagua, with its many layers, is a lens through which we can see adjustments we need to make in our space, and a map with which we can make those changes. The secrets of the Bagua reveal themselves to us in layers, deepening our understanding of the work as we add the depth of each layer. The first layer divides our living/working space into nine sections as seen in Figure 1. The next layer is that of the creation and destruction cycles of the five phases of the elements (see Sedona Journal of Emergence! April 2009), which encompass five of the nine "guas" of the Bagua (see Figure 2). Now we add colors, meanings and representations to the remaining four guas: wealth, love/marriage, helpful people/travel and skills/knowledge.

"Hi everyone, my name is Smokey. I'm a Siamese look-a-like kitten and very cute I might add! Mom's letting me have the computer today since I'm the latest addition to the family. I know you're probably saying, 'My goodness how many critters do they have?' To tell you the truth, I'm too young to count and all I know is we have a whole house load of fun and trouble. But all my family loves me because there's never a dull moment with me around stirring things up. This is a true story of a client Kim went to help, so read on and I'll catch up with you at the end, whoo hoo! A catnip mouse just rolled by-I have to pounce on him before he gets away. I have some serious playing to do. Here's Kim."

Abduction Gone Wrong!

"Thanks for the intro, Smokey. There was a female Doberman dog named Lady in need of my help. Apparently, she was the victim of an abduction gone wrong. As I drove up the long grassy driveway, I sensed a terrible aching in my heart. I felt as if my heart was breaking and thought I would burst into tears. Blocking my emotions and focusing all my energy on a beautiful, chocolate brown and black, shining, sleek-looking and very proud of her heritage Doberman. Lady was sitting in her caregiver's van. She was visibly shaken and trembling, feeling very afraid and unsure of herself. I wrapped my arms around her and told her, 'It's all right, you're safe now. Let it go and please tell me what happened.' With that, she started to cry and tell me of her awful experience a week ago.

"The brain is wider than the sky."
- Emily Dickinson

Dear Dream Zone,
I am sitting at a picnic table among red rocks and mesas in the Arizona desert. A man in a red shirt is sitting with me. There is a huge rock to my left, and I look it over with anticipation because the man and I know there will be a cougar coming from behind the rock. I saw it first and I pointed the animal out to the man. He directed me to be still and not resist. The cougar took a few steps, then ran and leaped onto the table. I sat still as it wrapped its jaws around the back of my neck and held me in its mouth. Then I realized I was holding myself up stiffly, so I slumped, relaxing my body onto my arms on the table. It maintained its hold on my neck and then I heard munching sounds and could sense that my back was bloody and raw and the cougar was chewing and licking it. I knew that I needed to continue to submit to it and let this be and that I would later be easily healed.

Dr. Katia: Have you been sexually abused or sexually manipulated? It seems at the very least you are suspicious of certain kinds of men, represented by the man in your dream. You are aware that some men only want sex and will manipulate you to get their pleasure. The dangerous ones are easy to recognize, they wear their passion on their sleeve (red shirt) and direct you not to resist. "My abuse will go easier on you if you don't resist. Hold still! The savage beast of sex won't kill you, it will just hurt you," says the seductive voice. Obey, and you survive. Don't be stiff and combative, go limp and let me have my way with you. There is a possibility that this dream is not about sexuality, though all the symbols are there, including the rock hard erection that the cause of your pain erupts from.
