David & The Law of One

Here is an odd synchronicity.

Just as I was struggling with something in my personal life that has to do with forgiveness, I logged onto David Wilcock's website - Divine Cosmos. It just so happens I am in the middle of reading his new book The Source Field Investigations. But I am also in the middle of reading book one of The Law of One.

David just posted a 20-minute video pertaining to The Law of One, which was written in 1984. What are the odds?

Anyway, he talks about personal spirituality, divination through Tarot Cards, and the ultimate responsibility of humans on earth at this time - which is?


This supposedly frees us from the wheel of karma and reincarnation, by letting go of the guilt of the past, along with the fear of the future.

Our old traumas, usually early childhood traumas, are the hardest to work through, but give us the best chance of freedom from repetition. Once you have made a commitment to forgive the people who may have hurt you, even inadvertently, you can then remind yourself that you have already forgiven that person when a negative thought or emotion comes along to replay your hurt/anger/resentment, etc.

Negativity bias is when the brain automatically returns to a negative thought five times more often then a positive one. The only way to change that thought is to replace it with positive thoughts. In the case of forgiveness one can say - sorry - can't go there - I've already forgiven that person and myself and anyone else involved - time to move on.

I guess I was meant to hear this information tonight - just after a long-winded rant today on the very person I need to forgive.

You never know where the information you need might come from. I'm not sure that everything David talks about on his website is part of my own personal cosmology - but taking the information you need, when you need it, is part of trusting the Creator. Whether is is from a writer/website or a billboard on the side of the road - when you are open to synchronicity, you find magic.

Here is his video - maybe you were meant to drop by my blog for a reason...

We're Making A Difference!

I've been getting updates on the petitions I've been signing. There is no doubt we're making a difference! Sometimes we look at these things and think - there is no way I, personally, can make any difference in this world. And maybe one person cannot make a difference with all of the atrocities - such as the dolphin massacre in Japan - but together, we can.

People are joining organizations all over the world. We are starting to organize in ways that is getting the attention of the powers that be. When hundreds of thousands, or millions, of signatures - complete with personal notes, show up on the desk of someone making the decision of whether or not to allow those boats out into the cove to kill dolphins - they know that what they are doing is getting world-wide attention. It is no longer a secret. 

Random acts of caring is how we will change the world. By banding together and sending a message to the people who think they are acting in vacuum - we know who you are and we want this activity to stop. We are from all nations from around the world, and we are unified.

That is our message.

The Revolution is Love

I'm having a great time drinking lemongrass-ginger frosts and soaking up the sun, but came across the trailer for a new movie that is actually a movement, so I thought I would pass it along. I'm hoping to catch up with all of you next week, and hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

My heart goes out to the young people, all over the world, who are willing to put themselves on the line to bring about world-wide change. We can only hope the violence in Cairo will stop, and the police in the US will quit pepper spraying our children.

Nothing like leaving home to go on vacation and then learn that your city is on fire. I don't know if we are lucky or not to be 2,000 miles away from our home this week. We've been in constant contact with our house sitters on whether or not they will need to evacuate. Over 25 homes have burned in Reno over the last two days.

A strange fire. It has moved all over the place, picking out homes in very odd places, not just the ones close to where it started. High winds have made it difficult for fire fighters to get it under control. My heart goes out to all of those that were somehow the recipients of this fickle monster.

It's funny, but when you try to tell someone what they need to save - it really isn't much. I mean, we have a whole house full of stuff, but nothing of real value. The valuable stuff is already out of the house, I guess. When you get right down to it, the only thing that really matters are the living. So now that Lucy is safe, we can enjoy our view:

Time Well Spent

I woke up this morning feeling sick. My husband managed to pass along some kind of virus that seemed to only slow him down, but walloped me - as usual. My children always had that ability - a little runny nose and maybe a small cough for them, would grow horns for me. Since we are off to Hawaii tomorrow, I really needed to find a way to get better fast. Our flight is early and our house sitters would be coming by to get acclimated to the house and Lucy's schedule. (Yes, Lucy has babysitters - don't all Labs?)

So I found myself with time on my hands and needing something that would lift my spirits.

I found just the thing on Coast to Coast. For some of you that might be Coast to Coast listeners, the segment on Transformation and Life Purpose was one of the best segments I've listened to so far. I'm a member, so I can download any show and listen to it in my own time. Coast to Coast has plenty of negative and even some scary stories and guests on occasion, but the one on November 14th was truly delightful.

Jack Canfield, of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, has co-written a new book with William Gladstone that has just been released. The Golden Motorcycle Gang has gone on my Christmas gift list. Jack Canfield is an incredibly good speaker. He is very down to earth and easy to understand. His message is one of hope and joy, and I found myself feeling so much better after listening to them talk about what they believe is the true meaning of 2012 and what is currently going on with current events. They talked about how to use specific skills to manifest those things that we want to see in our lives, especially our life purpose. We are here right now for a reason, and we chose this time for a reason. Every single person on this planet is important to what is happening - and I believe we are birthing a new evolution of mankind. I think that is what the Mayans are saying - it is the end of a cycle and the beginning of a new one. And we are driving it home.

People actually called the show and were crying, they were so touched by the dialog.

Just from listening to these guys speak for a couple of hours I feel that I am doing what I came here to do. I think I came here to write this blog, for one thing -  maybe to be someone that points people in directions they may not have considered, giving them the ability to make up their own minds. Maybe to do the research that they may not have time to do. To possibly write a book, maybe on shared-resources living. To be of service - in whatever small way that I can.

So what do you think? Am I on the right track?

Have you found your life purpose? (Hint - it is whatever brings you the most joy.)

ADDENDUM:  My brother called during the writing of this post to say that the business he decided to start, after quitting a good-paying job in this job market, is taking off like wild fire. He said for the first time in many, many, years he is having FUN!

Social Media

Many of you may have noticed that I no longer have a blog roll with all of your blogs on my sidebar. It is something that I miss - it is so easy to keep up when you update your blog with a new post, and I have fallen behind by not having this convenience. However, this was an intentional move to protect my readers. When writers Trish and Rob MacGregor were hacked several months back, a few of their blogging friends were also hacked. It was nasty - they hacked their email accounts, ruined a computer, literally made their lives miserable.

I closed my blog - totally eliminated it, and started a new one which I kept personal until it was clear I was not a target. But I began to worry about my readers. If for some reason I attracted a bad element - I didn't want my readers to also be pulled into the mess. Lucky for me, that has not happened. But for many, social media is becoming intrusive and worrisome.

This article about a mother who found her children were being used in an unauthorized manner makes the case for being very careful about what information you give to social media sites, and especially if you link them. In this case a mother found her children being used on one site, without them ever signing on to that site, just from them being a friend on her Facebook, and leaving a message on her Wall.

This is scary. The idea that information can be swiped and used throughout the internet is of major concern.

So be aware that when you sign on to your blog, twitter, Facebook, etc., that everything you write is public domain - even your children.

Occupy With Aloha

Photo courtesy of Yes Lab

For many of us who are becoming uneasy with some of the problems associated with Occupy Wall Street, the rapes, the degradation of community parks, the shootings, the fear that it will become a haven for some of society's most violent, what we are most uneasy about is the possibility that the message will be lost. The message - that 99% of our population has been forgotten, left out of the American Dream, while the other .09% has amassed the majority of the wealth of our great nation. That Wall Street used banks like casinos and we are left with the carnage of their greed, an economy on the brink of destruction. What is left for the rest of us is massive debt and jobs that are no longer in our country, but in foreign nations that do not have laws protecting the rights of their workers, thus enabling them to sell us their cheap products, while we borrow from those same countries to pay our teachers and fireman.

Our politicians very often come out of Washington much more wealthy than they were when they took their vows to honor the will of the American people. They often do this with inside information that the rest of the country does not have access to - just as Nancy Pelosi and her husband did with a credit card company. Soft corruption, honest graft. Insider trading in the stock market. Writing the rules so that they do not apply to themselves! Taking information learned in committee meetings and using it to make stock market trades. The rest of us go to prison for doing many of the things our politicians routinely do to line their pockets.

So when I found this post on Synchrosecrets, I asked Trish and Rob if I could repost it in its entirety. Here is one man's very brave stand for the other 99%.


Here’s an interesting twist in the Occupy movement.

Hawaiian recording artist Makana was supposed to play a luau Saturday night – November 12 – at Waikiki Beach for leaders at an annual summit that is putting together plans for a Pacific free-trade pact.  The Obamas and leaders of 21 economies from the Asia Pacific were present. Among the attendees were Chinese President Hu Jintao and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. Security was apparently tight.
So there they are, these leaders, doing whatever leaders do at a private shindig on Waikiki Beach, and the young man who is supposed to play for the Hawaiian feast opens his jacket to reveal a t-shirt that reads, Occupy for Aloha. The five-minute song in the video is what he sang repeatedly for forty minutes. Here’s the refrain I love:
“We’ll occupy the streets, we’ll occupy the courts, we’ll occupy the offices of you, till you do the bidding of the many, not the few.”

Ripping Off The Masks

I've mentioned before in this space of my belief that we are part of something sweeping the world. One of the outcomes of this new energy is that masks that shroud and camouflage are being ripped away at lightening speed. In the last week alone I've read of a high ranking CDC scientist being arrested for bestiality and child sexual abuse, the horrific Penn State scandal with a coach that put football above the protection of children, and of a documentary made in the mid 1990's that was squashed before it could be viewed on Discovery Channel. All known copies were purchased and destroyed by an unknown entity. The film exposed the organized abuse of children through Boys Town -  and was another case of people in the highest echelons of business and government hiding evil proclivities and abusing children that are most vulnerable.

Each day we read about wannabe-be politicians who have sexually harassed women and lie to cover it up, corporate executives that have the highest of incomes cheating their companies and their employees, Ponzi schemes, greedy bankers using the public trust like a casino, priests that abuse young boys being protected by those in power above them. The list goes on and on.

What is happening here?

It's time for humanity to clean up its act. And those that are practicing evil had better watch out, because they are no longer operating in the same system that has protected them for so long.

So each time you hear of a mask being ripped from the face of someone who deserves to be exposed - don't despair in humanity - let out a cheer instead. It's bringing us that much closer to a world that no longer tolerates these activities, or the people that perpetrate them.

Planting the Seeds

Dr. Kashonia has done a great post on planting the seeds for our future at this sacred time. She says the energy or force is with us over the next few days. In another post she talks about this special date, and what is believed to be happening to our DNA, among other things.

So start thinking about your future.  Now is the time to plant the seeds that will grow. 

I am continuing to work on my shared-resources communities - in fact I hope to visit one or two in the next year. At least that's my goal. (Thanks for your comment yesterday, Chris!)

Here is one idea that I just loved - a whole apartment building in Berlin of like-minded people. The price for these ten apartments came out to just $146,000 per space. Granted, some of the apartments may be bigger than others, so those would be more expensive, but still - much less than your average condo would cost almost anywhere. The designer said he cannot imagine living any other way. Being able to ring a doorbell, have communal parties, feeling completely safe, made his vision a success.

As mentioned in my last post, my family is exploring business ideas. One daughter is designing the teacher she wants to be, while finishing up graduate work. She will be teaching junior high school-level students, and thinks of them as her little "peaches." I love that, since adolescents are near and dear to my heart as well. Our educational system needs an overhaul - I applaud her desire to be the best she can be.

We are attending a wedding today for some very dear friends who will get married at 11:00 a.m. on 11-11-11 - all without ever paying attention to the date or time! I guess they don't believe in the cosmic prompt.

But for those of us who do believe in the unseen - this date is powerful, so whatever dreams you have, bring them out, dust them off, and lets see what happens. If nothing else, do something today that you enjoy, that makes you happy, and above all - be positive. We live a shared dream, a hologame of sorts, and for everyone that is thinking good thoughts - the rest benefit. Magnify the energy! We can use all the good you can muster.

Thursday, November 10, 2011


Our family is currently exploring the idea of starting a couple of different businesses. Several ideas are being floated, and nothing is firm yet, but the energy is flowing and ideas are popping.

We come into this with a variety of skills and experience in a number of fields - finance, research, investor relations, accounting, management, computer modeling, experience with start-ups, resource development, alternative energy, human development, psychology, human relations, marketing, teaching, cooking, writing.

Surely we can create a business opportunity, don't you think?

If fact, I would bet that you have family and/or friends that come with a variety of skill sets that create something completely different when you put them all together. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

I would also bet that same set of family/friends have some great ideas - just simmering on the back burner.

New ideas, new businesses, fresh starts. I think we're going to have create our own opportunities in the future. Maybe we can do it the way it should be done - with mindfullness, gratitude, and environmental awareness.

I have been following a rather disturbing story for awhile now. Chemical trails are not what we think they are - they are not just contrails from airplanes flying at high altitudes. Needless to say, this is deeply disturbing information - especially because it is being done in secret. CMN has been on this story for some time, and as the mother of an asthmatic daughter, I find this information chilling.

The island of Maui is trying to detour all airplanes from flying over the island because the organic produce being grown on the island is no longer organic.

The following video is short - only 10 minutes - and is one that everyone should watch. It's time to wake up to what is going on around us, and more importantly, to us.

I do not care for most precious stones. I wear a simple gold wedding band, eschewing an engagement ring offered, oh so many years ago, and instead look for rocks like some women look for the perfect diamond.

I have moonstone, turquoise, rose agate, moldevite, ammolite, Mexican fire opal, and many more that are basically just rocks. Most of my jewelry is under $500.00. Not a collection that is bound for Southeby's when I die.

My current passion is jade. But when I started researching this stone I found that it can be incredibly expensive, especially for very green pieces with very little occlusions.  Jade is actually two different stones - jadeite and nephrite - with jadeite being the most valued. Most gem quality stones are Jadeite Burmese Jade, and the finest are Imperial green Jade. The value of jadeite depends on its degree of transparency and color. The most desired have intensive, even color, honey-like transparency, watery luster, translucency, even texture, and a pure vivid root-like structure. 

An understanding of jade should not limited to its technical aspects, however. Jade has as much to do with feeling as gem quality. The people of the Orient have developed an appreciation of the stone beyond anywhere else in the world, desiring it above all others - including gold and ivory. "Gold has value; jade is beyond value." Adding to the inscrutable nature of this precious stone is the knowledge that is locked away in arcane, non-Roman alphabet texts, adding to the mystery. The ancient Chinese believed that jade was a link between the physical and spiritual worlds - The Stone of Heaven - embodying both the yin and yang qualities of Heaven and Earth. Since it is a non-conductor, it feels cool to the touch. This coolness is said to elevate and purify one's thoughts, quieting the mind and inducing a state of contemplation. They also believed powdered jade taken internally, in the right dosage, could cure any ailment. That it could ward off bad luck and misfortune, creating greater health and mentality.

And what about the more modern mystical qualities often attributed to jade? 

It is said to help one to attain goals and dreams, identifying limitations so that you might manifest ideas into the physical world, promoting courage, compassion, justice, generosity, humility, wealth and longevity, allowing one to lead a richer and more fulfilling life. 

But for me, the most important aspect of jade is that it is a stone of the heart. Related to the fourth, or Heart Chakra (which is the color green), it is said to be beneficial to all related issues. Which is why I would love to have one hanging right on that place around my neck. 

What about you? Do you have a stone that you would like to have? Do you want to wear it or look at it? Why do you want that specific stone or jewel?

Prince Charles - The Deep Thinker

Regina, at CMN, has written about Prince Charles's new book - Harmony and the Prince - and I realized how deep, and profoundly spiritual this man can be. He gives practical advice of how to live in harmony with our environment, and many other thoughts about how to see the world and its leaders differently. It has been literally ignored in the UK press, evidently, and most people that she asked did not even know about it.

Of course it's going on my lengthy Amazon book list. Anyone with ideas about how to do things differently is worth my time. It has also been made into a film, and was a documentary on NBC last November. Here is the trailer:

Prince Charles - really? Who knew? But as Regina suggests - never judge a book by its cover.
