Trish MacGregor posted about this book on her blog a few weeks ago. If a noted author likes a book - I take notice. I immediately downloaded it for the unbelievable price of just $2.99. I think it has gone up to around $5 -  which is still a good price.

E-Squared by Pam Grout is a simple read, just over 150 pages. Her style is easy and funny, often self deprecating, yet genius in its simplicity. It is about everything I have tried to convey on this blog and so much more. (I'm a bit jealous, actually.)

I've highlighted a couple of excerpts:

"If we simply devote our minds to feeling rich, to being grateful for all the already-apparent riches in our lives - say, our families and our wonderful friends - being broke would disappear. We only experience it because we devote our thoughts to it. That's how powerful our minds are."

"Open your mind and clear it of all thoughts that would deceive."

"The universe is limitless, abundant, and strangely accommodating."

"You impact the field and draw from it according to your beliefs and expectations."

She proves this by having you do your own experiments. Each chapter has a way for you to prove to yourself what she is conveying.

Amazon had almost 700 reviews for this book and all of them were close to five stars. I'm not sure I've seen that for any book that I've purchased so far.

So do your self a favor and at least check it out.

Comet Ison

Comet Ison is heading our way. It will be passing Mars on or near October 1st, and will be visible in the sky sometime in November.

Should we be keeping an eye on Ison?

Sweeper effects happen with large objects passing through our solar system. This effect simply means asteroids, meteors, or comets that have big dust clouds push things out of their way as they come through. These objects could include space junk, which is an unbelievable problem, believe it or not.

This comet was only discovered in September of 2012, yet it is very bright, probably because it is spewing gas and dust from a fairly large nucleus. (The nucleus on this comet is also rather strange.)

NASA states that it will fly by the sun on November 28, 2013, and if it survives, it could be visible during daylight hours and shine as brightly as the moon.

Could this look like two suns?

The reason I ask this question is because of the work of the late Zacharia Stitchin and others that believe we are on an elongated, elliptical, orbit with a 12th planet called Nibiru. It comes around about every 3,600 years. He bases these claims on ancient Sumerian text. I won't go into the pros and cons of his work other than to say he believed when Nibiru returned it would look as though we have two suns.

Now, here is the interesting part. People are seeing colored balls of light all over the world. Many report balls of fire, or balls of red or pink lights, some have a green trail - some are moving fast like meteors and some are moving slow like UFOs. Many people are reporting increased military helicopters near these sightings. In fact, a law was passed that prohibits anyone from picking up pieces of meteors or other space debris that hits on federal land. In some instances it can be worth millions of dollars. Could this be why military helicopters are being seen in these areas?

There is a planned drill of our electrical grid in November. 

There is also talk of increased FEMA activity on the East Coast - all the way to Puerto Rico. Additional supplies have been ordered to be shipped no later than October 1st. Of course, this might not be related at all - maybe just a coincidence. But the fact the Air Force has shut down its program to monitor objects in our orbit seems rather coincidental as well. They say it is because of sequestration. Maybe so, but what about the person who was trying to come forward on the Clyde Lewis show who states all of her electronics were destroyed when she tried to call into his program as a whistleblower? She sounded terrified on last night's program. 

She stated Puerto Rico is seeing increased troop activity, strange skies - almost like a filter over half of the sky, strange weather, she said FEMA has extended rumor control in the area, and information to the US mainland is being filtered. People on the island are having very strange dreams about fire - catastrophic fire - hundreds of them, including soldiers. One little boy, who is autistic, drew a picture of the island being bombarded with balls of fire. She said people there are expecting some kind of extraterrestrial event, possibly the tip of the comet hitting the island or the ocean, causing a tsunami. One caller stated he lived on the island his entire life and had never seen such activity.

A doctor came on the program to back up what she was saying, and also discussed strange viruses and bacteria that have been found recently on the island. This immediately brought to mind Linda Moulton Howe's update on Dreamland regarding strange elk and deer die-offs in Montana and New Mexico.

And then there is Amauri Rivera who states he was abducted in 1988, and his story seems to dovetail with this story.

Her final advice?  Don't panic, but be prepared for emergencies. I think that is sound advice whether or not anything comes of this particular scenario.

One has to wonder - are we already beginning to see the effects of Comet Ison? And is it a comet, or something more?

I know I've mentioned Gaiam TV in past posts, namely because Regina Meridith moved her site to Gaiam over a year ago. At first I was not sure I wanted to pay $9.95 per month for a website, but Regina's Conscious Media Network moved my membership over to Gaiam, so I thought I might as well check it out. I have never been sorry. I admit to paying for several sites - mostly interviews with interesting people - Veritas, Red Ice, Coast to Coast, Dreamland, etc., but if I'm looking to find something that is cutting edge and forward-thinking - I go to Gaiam.

Three new programs will added next week - one with Daniel Pinchbeck - "focusing on the future of civilization, technology, spirituality and the emerging new paradigm for humanity." The other two programs are also timely - one with Regina Meridith having to do with strange phenomena, of which we have plenty of at the moment. The other has to do with maintaining our health, which should be at the top of everyone's list.

David Wilcock teaches "Law of One" and other interesting topics on his Wisdom Teachings which airs every Monday. George Noory of Coast to Coast also has a program; Beyond Belief.

The site also features Yoga, movies, and much more.

It's not always easy to find places that are forward thinking and uplifting at the same time. Gaiam TV does a good job of both.

Sacred Symbols

Some time ago I found a website that creates sacred symbol jewelry. Since that time I have acquired several pieces that represent my feelings about life and the universe. One necklace that I wear often is the Vesica Pisces. In short its meaning is "I am becoming what I am becoming." In other words, we are in a constant state of evolution, which is a basic tenet of my understanding of the universe.

I also have The Flower of Life pendant which consists of 13 spheres which holds many mathematical and geometric laws. These laws represent the whole universe and people often report physical and psychological changes while wearing this shape.

I wear the Light Pendant when I'm feeling the world is overwhelming me in negativity. It represents unity, wisdom, giving, and love.

When my daughter and her friend graduated college and started applying for teaching positions during a time of unprecedented teacher layoffs, I gave them the Abundance Pendent. Both have jobs teaching. My daughter landed a full-time position teaching in a city that was her first choice. She is teaching in a school that has given her full-time support and a small special education class load for her first year of teaching! She couldn't be happier. The website states "Its not what we have but what we enjoy that constitutes our abundance."

Ka Gold Jewelry (not all gold, of course) recently sent me an email with their latest design based on Buckminster Fuller, one of my all-time heroes. It is going on my wish list. The Sphere of Consciousness "is intended to increase our sense of connectedness and unity. Awake our consciousness to the universe and our role in it."

I have found this site to be safe and secure and the people that run it to be professional and honest. So next time you feel like looking for something meaningful check out Ka Gold Jewelry. It takes a few weeks to get your design, as David often makes the piece when he receives the order. It ships from Israel, so plan ahead.

We have had a devastating fire season this year. The West has burned as never before. The fire in Yosemite created so much smoke in Lake Tahoe, that it was literally hard to see the mountains.

We lost 19 firefighters in Colorado. The Yosemite fire burned over 200,000 acres.

Unbelievable loss.

Nightline did a segment on planes that are used for fighting these fires. Did you know that they are so old they were used in the Korean War? Did you know they often crash - two last year, and one that literally lost its wings before crashing this year? The fleet has actually shrunk from 45 to just 11 planes. At one point this summer we had over 250 forest fires burning out of control.

The drought over the last ten years has created millions of acres burned, thousands of homes destroyed, and 200 dead firefighters.

A Forest Service report discussing the replacement of this aging fleet was first discussed in 2002! This is 2013 and absolutely nothing as been done.

Six air tankers were ordered the day the 19 firefighters died. None showed up. Not one. They were literally left on their own. It is unknown if they would have survived with air support, but one thing is for sure - we will never know.

I live at Lake Tahoe. Some argue that we get what we deserve if we live in the forest - after all, it's good for the forest to burn on occasion. I don't disagree. But the clarity of Lake Tahoe is seriously threatened with every fire that has run off. This lake is a national treasure. I hope the next generation and many more after that will have the pleasure of looking at  its clear blue water.

So while we watch our natural resources burn, our politicians in Washington continue to debate yet another war. Estimates range in the trillions to maintain the 1,000 military bases the United States has around the world. Yet we have only 11 Korean War-era bombers equipped to fight fires in the United States.

There is something really wrong with this picture.

Stop Whining and Get To Work!

My daughter sent me this piece on Generation Y and why they are so unhappy. I thought it quite accurate and found myself taking full responsibility for encouraging our two girls to follow their dreams. (And maybe of convincing them they are special.) Of course, this was before the banking cartel tanked our economy and the Supreme Court decided to declare corporations people, thus allowing the tidal wave of money lobbyists use to buy support for their clients. This was before unions were busted in order to lower the wages for all workers by people like the Koch brothers.

No, in those days we Baby Boomers had great hope for the future. We followed the rules, worked hard, and saved for our children's educations. We believed in our government and our military to do the right thing for everyone involved. (This was before we realized the CIA and all of the other alphabet agencies had actually been tanking whole countries to ensure their corporate handlers had free access to said countries natural resources - but that is another post.)

The part that got my goat, actually, was all of the comments following the article that wanted to blame Boomers for their bleak economic outlook. Many of the comments actually told us to move on - quit working - retire, already! They need our jobs and believe us to be selfish in holding on when it is clear to them we are to blame for all of their troubles.

So here is my response to them -

Boomers are not working to irritate your generation. We are working because we have to work! Many have lost their homes, their savings, and any hope of being able to pass anything on to the next generation.

Boomers are working because they need health care and can not afford to pay out-of-pocket. One major illness and many of us are on the street.

Boomers are working to help their children, grandchildren, and other family members.

Boomers are working so they don't have to move in with their children!

While my generation has to take responsibility for voting in Clinton, who was the first to ship our jobs overseas and to do away with Glass-Steagall, which opened the door to the banking debacle, we truly believed in the load of garbage they sold us. We may have been perplexed how sending our jobs out of the country could actually help us -  but we still believed in our elected officials knowing more than we did about the world.

Same with Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, et al. We bought all of their lies, even though we were uneasy. Two wars later, we are bankrupt, in debt, and starting to smell a rat...

Not so with Obama. We can now see that the NSA spying on everything we do, warmongering in the Middle East, the NDAA, and the Monsanto Protection Act cannot be considered in our best interest. To say I am disappointed in a president, that I voted for twice, is an understatement. But he hasn't done this alone - Congress has passed every single one of those policies.

This last week made one thing clear, however - nothing will change unless we change it. And quite frankly, it's time for the X and Y generation to turn off their cell phones, take a break from Facebook and Twitter and get involved in the process. The future is in your hands. Call your representatives in Washington, email your President, email your Secretary of State. Start petitions and sign ones that come your way that try to reign in the evil doers that are in control. Boomers can't do it without you. And there is one thing Congress understands - voters willing to make a change in the next election cycle.

All of their numbers are right here.

So, stop whining and get to work!

Well, after a sabbatical to spend time reading and researching, I think it's time to hone my writing skills and say hello. Thanks to all of you that left messages for me. I appreciate the thought that there are people who read what I have to say and value the information I try to pass along.

The world is changing so fast, and there is so much going on that it's hard to know what is right, what is wrong, what is real, and what is not. This blog attempts to bring things to light. My hope is that together we can begin to see patterns in our environment that will bring us closer to understanding our mercurial world events.

This last week has been a busy one for me. I've manned the phone calling all of my representatives in Washington, the Secretary of State, and even emailed the President. And while everything seems to be spinning faster and faster, there is one thing I know for sure; we are WAKING UP. We are waking up on a global scale. No longer are we sitting in our rocking chairs feeling we have no power to change things. We were game changers this week. We said NO to war. We said NO to killing more innocent people in Syria in trying to right a wrong. We sent a clear message to our elected officials that we would no longer sit on the side lines while they made life and death decisions for us. The whole world said NO. That is huge. That is really huge. We gave diplomacy a chance.

Congrats world. Whatever your belief, you voiced it.

Something Strange Going On

I recently found Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis, which is a radio talk show program out of Portland, Oregon. Our children live in Portland and we plan on retiring there, so I was curious. I have only listened to one segment, 3/22/13, but on this segment he mentioned that the birds are sounding different. Sick sounding. Many callers called in saying the same thing. Some felt it was the chem trails that I posted on last time, others felt it was other reasons, but all agreed that the birds and animals were acting very strange. One caller said he was driving and noticed about ten cars pulled over on the side of the road in Maine - they were looking at about 40 deer just standing next to the road - not at all afraid of the cars or the people. He said they were crossing the road in packs of ten.

We all know about the dolphins and whales that are beaching themselves and huge bird and fish die offs, but something really strange happened to me the other day. I was sitting in my upstairs window and noticed a mountain lion right next to the stream below my home! 

A half hour later a bear ambled down the same way to the stream and crossed over behind us! You have to understand, we do live in the mountains, but in a community of homes. Bears are not unheard of, certainly, and we have seen them before - but never a mountain lion! In fact, my father who was a big outdoorsman once mentioned that he had never seen a mountain lion in all his years in Nevada. To have both of these animals cross over within a half hour is very, very unusual. 

Something else that was very strange happened a few months ago. There was several feet of snow on the ground and a Great Blue Heron landed on the stream, and after several minutes, caught a fish! It then walked up the bank and around the end of the unit of condos that we live in! I have never seen such a bird! And in the middle of the winter at 6,500 ft.? It came back a few weeks later but I didn't see it in time before opening our slider to let our dog out, and it flew off.

Strange, strange stuff going on in the animal world.

A Favorite Interview!

I posted on this a few years ago, but Dr. Kashonia just sent it to me again and as I was listening to it, I knew I needed to repost the link. I have listened to hundreds of interviews over the last couple of years but this is one of my absolute favorites! Unfortunately, Dr. Harper passed away just 36 hours after giving this interview so we no longer have his brilliant mind on this planet. If you have the time, and need something that is uplifting and educational, then this is the interview for you.

From Dr. Kashonia's email to me:

Dr John Jay Harper was a futurist, body-mind-spirit research scientist, public-speaker, and writer.

He was a graduate of the American Institute of Hypnotherapy; California College for Health Sciences; and Central Washington University; a veteran of the U.S. Army; a retired computer specialist; electronics engineer; and senior mental health counselor with the Department of Defense.

Prior to his sudden and very sad death, John was an international talk show guest and seminar leader speaking to the purpose of the galaxy-sun-earth pole shift alignment process in era-2012 and its impact on the evolution of human consciousness.
He authored the book Transformers: Shamans of the 21st century, and was one of the most passionate speakers I've heard in a long time.

John believed that our task at this time is to become "shape-shifting shamans ...; to master trance techniques of telepathy and travel at will into the outer reaches of inner space - The Fifth Dimension".

A Higher Vibration

I am finding it difficult this month to remain positive. We have been bombarded with chem trails and it has not only affected my health, but has made me so sad for what they are doing to our planet. Geo-engineering is alive and well. I live in a very beautiful place and to see those awful chemicals going into Lake Tahoe has lowered my energy and made me feel sad, fearful, and angry. I know these emotions are bad for me. But trying to raise my vibration has been difficult.

Just as I was in the deepest despair, after reading an article on the possible extinction of wild elephants, I clicked on Lilou's interview with Inelia Benz. I have been receiving email notifications from her but have been busy doing other things and haven't read them. Was the Universe trying to get my attention and I was ignoring it? At any rate, this video was exactly what I needed. It was toward the end of the interview that I felt she was talking directly to me.

I feel so much better.

We are not alone. We have helpers all around us, we just can't see them.

17 Seconds

I watched an incredible interview on Gaiam TV the other day with Regina Merideth - you may remember her from Conscious Media Network.

Anyway, this one was with Jeff Fannin of the Center for Cognitive Enhancement. His group has unearthed some fascinating new research in brainmapping and neurofeedback. The gist of which is that it is now possible to see the frequency of our thoughts in real time. This opens up the possibility of actually being able to change the function of our brain. Through the quantitative EEG, researchers are able to actually see different colors of different frequencies in the brain. For instance, when a person is being a certain way - courageous, duplicitous, deceptive, etc, certain parts of the brain fire up. This can now be mapped in real time. We can actually see the effects of our thoughts on our brains!

So what does this mean? It means that there is a very real possibility that we can tune our brains and change certain things in our lives simply by learning to control our thought processes. It is their assertion that the brain is actually a tuning device for the energy field that we interact with. One of the most basic laws of physics is that like attracts like. In fact it takes just 17 seconds of thinking to start attracting energy that is similar. Just 17 seconds! 68 seconds puts us on a path of familiarity. We've talked about these mind loops here before. So we literally have 17 seconds to change a negative thought into a positive one if we don't want to start attracting negative energy, and just 68 seconds before our brains create a familiar neural pathway.

75% of our thoughts are negative. This is normal because we actually learn what we want by determining what we don't want. The amgydala (a small almond shape deep in the brain related to emotion) is designed to get us out of the way of danger. But if it over fires because we are constantly watching, reading, hearing, scary things - we become fearful. The media is designed to give us negative news because that is what we want - because it is familiar to us.

This may be a good way of bridging science and spirituality. By resonating at a higher frequency we may actually be able to evolve. This is what my book is about and I am so excited to come across this research. By understanding that our thoughts have different frequencies, we can choose the higher ones.

Remember, you have just 17 seconds to change your thought processes if it is negative. If you are mad, it is a good idea to just drop it. Don't replay it to your significant other, don't think about how angry you are, don't tell your friends about it. Just move on. Otherwise in 68 seconds that anger is familiar.

And we always go back to the familiar.

Thoughts & Emotions

One of the the most profound findings in the research I've done for my book is the understanding of how we create our world. Thoughts+Emotions = Creation. It is that simple.

In the book I go into much more detail, but suffice to say, the physics behind this seemingly simple explanation is not so simple, but that does not change the fact. When we engage our heart, through emotion, our thoughts begin to organize and create. That is why it is so important to learn to control your thinking. Especially the thoughts that bring forth emotion. As Seth says - whatever you concentrate on will be what you manifest. (Some day I need to get back to the Seth book and postings.)

For now, go here for a great post on synchronicity and the creative process.

God-Given Talents

About twenty-four years ago I had just reached my goal of being able to swim a mile (36 laps) without stopping. I was quite pleased with myself and was feeling great. Then one day, as I was blow drying my hair, I noticed I could not hear the same on both sides, but it was only noticeable with the high whine of the blow dryer. Some of you know that was when I was diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma on the brain stem side, and I would be forever changed.

But that's not what this post is about.

I have not swam laps for all of these years. I don't know why. I guess it just brought back bad memories. Or maybe I didn't think I would have stamina in the pool any longer. Regardless, I decided that since we spend quite a bit of time in Hawaii on a regular basis, I had absolutely no business in the ocean unless I could swim some distance. You just never know when that skill will come in handy.

We started swimming laps, my husband and I, sometime in November. The first time in the pool I could only go about 9 laps with numerous stops. (The 6,500 feet of altitude didn't help.) The second time I could go further but still needed to stop. By the third time in the pool I could swim close to half a mile without stopping. Now I'm up to 20 laps and well on my way to a full mile.

My point?

I think everyone has some form of exercise that just comes more easily to them. For me, it is swimming. For others it is running, or biking, or lifting weights. We're born doing some things more easily than others. My husband is a great skier - I have always been a hazard on the slopes. He is also a good runner and goes miles with our dog. I, on the other hand, used to "jog" only 1 mile and I knew exactly where to turn around so that I didn't go beyond that one mile marker. However, we were sharing a lane in the pool the other day and I powered right past him. (It's the only physical thing I have ever been better at than he is.)

Our older daughter does Bikram Yoga - you know, the yoga with HEAT. Honestly, I cannot think of anything worse. Doing yoga and being really hot and sweaty is my idea of HELL. Our younger daughter used to be outside-mid for her high school soccer team - with asthma. She just plowed right past all of her limitations and ran - in a most aggressive style, I might add. I can't think of anything worse - people kicking my legs while I'm running as fast as I can??

So whatever comes easy to you is probably your God-given talent. Whether it is exercise or work related, if you want to find your path then look no further than whatever you can do with the least amount of  resistance. That doesn't mean you don't have to work at it - it just means it's easier, and more fun. That is part of this Shift of Ages. Learning to pay attention to our God-given gifts. Feeling into what works for us.

And having fun doing it.

2013 - Year of Community

Every once in a while I come across someone's work that expresses exactly what I believe is happening in our world at a particular time. This beautiful video by Lee Harris on 2013 is one of those times
