There is a God at the post office

This is one of the kindest things
i have ever experienced.
I have no way to know who sent it,
but there is a beautiful soul
working in the dead letter office of the US postal service

Our 14 year old dog, Abbey, died last month.
The day after she died,
my 4 year old daughter Meredith was crying
and talking about how much she missed Abbey.

She asked if we could write a letter to God
so that when Abbey got to heaven,
God would recognize her.

I told her that I thought we could
so she dictated these words:

Dear God,

Will you please take care of my dog?
She died yesterday and is with you in heaven.
I miss her very much.
I am happy that you let me have her
as my dog even though she got sick.

I hope you will play with her.
She likes to play with balls and to swim.
I am sending a picture of her so when you see her.
You will know that she is my dog.
I really miss her.

Love, Meredith.

We put the letter in an envelope
with a picture of Abbey and Meredith,
and addressed it to God/Heaven.

We put our return address on it.

Then Meredith pasted several stamps
on the front of the envelope
because she said it would take lots of stamps
to get the letter all the way to heaven.
That afternoon she dropped it into the letter box
at the post office.
A few days later,
she asked if God had gotten the letter yet.
I told her that I thought He had.

Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper
on our front porch addressed,
'To Meredith' ....in an unfamiliar hand writing.

Meredith opened it.

Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called,
'When a Pet Dies'.
Taped to the inside front cover
was the letter we had written to God
in its opened envelope.
On the opposite page
was the picture of Abbey & Meredith and this note:

Dear Meredith,
Abbey arrived safely in heaven.
Having the picture was a big help.
I recognized Abbey right away.
Abbey isn't sick anymore.
Her spirit is here with me
just like it stays in your heart.
Abbey loved being your dog.
Since we do NOT need our bodies in heaven,
I do NOT have any pockets to keep your picture in,
so I am sending it back to you
in this little book for you to keep
and have something to remember Abbey by.

Thank you for the beautiful letter
and thank your mother for helping you write it
and sending it to me.

What a wonderful mother you have.

I picked her especially for you.

I send my blessings every day
and remember that I love you very much.

By the way,
I am easy to find,
I am wherever there is love.

If you were born in the 40s to early 70s

This is quite true, and, a little food for thought

1940's, 50's, 60's and early 70's !

First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked
and/or drank while
they carried us and lived in houses made of asbestos..
They took aspirin, ate blue cheese, raw egg products,
loads of bacon and
processed meat, tuna from a can,
and didn't get tested for diabetes or
cervical cancer.

Then after that trauma, our baby cots were covered with bright colored
lead-based paints.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and

when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets or shoes, not to mention, the

risks we took hitchhiking.

As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags.

We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle.

Take away food was limited to fish and chips, no pizza shops, McDonalds,
KFC, Subway or Nandos.

Even though all the shops closed at 6.00pm and didn't open on the
weekends, somehow we didn't starve to death!

We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE
actually died from this.

We could collect old drink bottles and cash them in at the corner store
and buy Toffees, mojod, thrills gum (that tasted like soap)
Black Balls, ****** Babies licrose, Gobstoppers, Bubble Gum and some bangers to blow up frogs

We ate cupcakes, white bread and real butter and drank soft drinks with
sugar in it, but we weren't overweight because......


We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were
back when the streetlights came on.

No one was able to reach us all day. And we were O.K.��

we walked 1 - 2 -3 miles to school in 5 feet of snow

we rode our bikes, 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 miles,
AND, Thought nothing of it

We would spend hours building our go-carts out of old prams and then
ride down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. We built tree
houses and dens and played in river beds with matchbox cars.

We tromped to the local ski hill in our boots
or, skiied there -- and, the 2 minutes down the hill
and, a 20 minute climb back up,
and, repeated the process almost three times an hour...
and, got 18 runs in, before coming home 5 hours later

We did not have Playstations, Nintendo Wii, X-boxes, no video games at
all, no 999 channels on SKY,
no video/dvd films,
no mobile phones, no personal computers, no Internet or Internet chat
and, less than 3 channels on black and white tv

WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no
Lawsuits from these accidents.

Only girls had pierced ears!

navy, army, air force people and, bikers had tatoes

We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in
us forever.

You could only buy Easter Eggs and Hot Cross Buns at Easter time...

We were given air guns and catapults for our 10th birthdays,

We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or
rang the bell, or just yelled for them!

Mum didn't have to go to work to help dad make ends meet!

RUGBY and CRICKET had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who
didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!! Getting
into the team was based on

Our teachers used to hit us with canes-and, we got the strap
if we didn't behave

bully's always ruled the playground at school.

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of.
they actually sided with the law!

Our parents didn't invent stupid names for their kids like 'Kiora' and
'Blade' and 'Ridge' and 'Vanilla'

We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned HOW

And if YOU are one of them!

You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow
up as kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated our lives for
our own good.
And while you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know how
brave their parents were.

PS -The big type is because your eyes are not too good at your age

Will You Dance With Me?


Too many people put off something that brings them joy
just because they haven't thought about it,
don't have it on their schedule,
didn't know it was coming
or are too rigid to depart from their routine.

I got to thinking one day about all those women
on the titanic who passed up dessert at dinner
that fateful night in an effort to
cut back.

From then on, I've tried to be a little more flexible.

How many women out there will eat at home
because their
husband didn't suggest going out to dinner
until after something had been

Does the word 'refrigeration' mean nothing to you?

How often have your kids dropped in to talk
and sat in
silence while you watched ' Jeopardy ' on television?

I cannot count the times I called my sister and said,
'How about going to lunch in a half hour?'
She would gas up and stammer, 'I
can't. I have clothes on the line.
My hair is dirty.
I wish I had known
yesterday, I had a late breakfast,
It looks like rain.'

And my personal
favorite: 'It's Monday.'
She died a few years ago.
We never did have
lunch together.

Because Americans cram so much into their lives,
we tend to
schedule our headaches.
We live on a sparse diet of promises
we make to
ourselves when all the conditions are perfect!

We'll go back and visit the grandparents
when we get Steve

We'll entertain when we replace the living-room carpet...
We'll go on a second honeymoon when we get two more kids out of

Life has a way of accelerating as we get older.
The days get
shorter, and the list of promises to ourselves gets longer.
One morning,
we awaken, and all we have to show for our lives is a litany o
f 'I'm going
to,' 'I plan on,'
and 'Someday, when things are settled down a bit.'

When anyone calls my 'seize the moment' friend,
she is open
to adventure and available for trips.

She keeps an open mind on new
ideas. Her enthusiasm for life is contagious.

You talk with her for five
minutes, and you're ready to trade your bad feet
for a pair of Roller
blades and skip an elevator for a bungee cord..

My lips have not touched ice cream in 10 years.
I love ice

It's just that I might as well apply it directly to my stomach
with a spatula and eliminate the digestive process

The other day, I
stopped the car and bought a triple-Decker.

If my car had hit an iceberg
on the way home, I would have died happy.

Now...go on and have a nice day.

Do something you WANT
to......not something on your SHOULD DO list.

If you were going to die
soon and had only one phone call you could make,
who would you call and
what would you say?

And why are you waiting?

Make sure you read this to the end;
you will understand why I
sent this to you.

Have you ever watched kids playing on a merry go round or
listened to the rain lapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butter fly's
erratic flight or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

Do you run
through each day on the fly?

When you ask ' How are you?'

Do you hear
the reply?

When the day is done, do you lie in your bed with the next
hundred chores running through your head?

Ever told your child, 'We'll do
it tomorrow.'

And in your haste, not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch?

Let a good friendship die?

Just call to say 'Hi?

When you worry and hurry through your day,
it is like an
unopened gift....

Thrown away.....

Life is not a race Take it slower.

the music before the song is over.

You are here,
to weave your energy, as, your light
in the highest eXpression of truth,
which is love

So very hard, to believe, it is, already 2009...
2+0+0+9 = 11

Eleven is a master number,
and, it offers up, THE ABILITY to bring forward all that you are,
into "The Pivot of The NOW"

like 2008,
which was The Year of The Trinity of New Beginnings,
1-1-1 (2+0+0+8=10/1)

2009- which is seen,
as, The Year of Double New Beginnings,
as, it brings forth, a year, of
4 , 5, and, 6 gateways...
the most important of which,
is an authentic 11-11-11

many combinations of dates, that express 1's

1-1-2009 = 1 1 - 11

11-11-2009 = 11 - 11 - 11

(i will come back, and, insert more,

a Friend, voices@gaia.com
sent me this,
for their predictions for the year
so, i thought i would share it:


You'll find the most amazing gifts in what seemed like disasters.
Just as the economy pushed people to spend a less materialistic and more deeply satisfying holiday at home with friends and family, you'll discover similar blessings tucked within what first seemed like hopeless problems. (In fact, you might find this to be true of every crisis you encounter.

You'll fall in love.
One morning you'll stagger to the mirror, gaze into a set of sleepy eyes, and realize just how amazing that perfect person staring back at you is.

You'll find yourself saying 'yes' more and more.
The journey you started on when you first found this community will get even more exciting. You'll follow your heart, you'll trust your intuition, and you'll be guided safely through incredible adventures. You won't be afraid.

You'll change the world.
You'll commit to some small daily action (smiling more, maybe, or responding to fear with love and grace) that'll impact the lives of countless strangers. And, even more importantly, you'll commit to being yourself, really and truly—and by doing so will give others the courage to pursue their own dreams.

And... at least one of you will attend the inauguration of the US's first bi-racial President!
You'll answer the question posed by the Case Foundation, win a trip to Washington, and see history in the making. (When you win, can I be your guest?

Happy New Year, all, again and again!

I can't wait to check back in 2010 to see just how each of these came true.

Who wants to be a millionaire?
James West
Jan 15, 2009

I feel like Harry Truman, the 83-year-old Mount St. Helens resident who refused to leave his mountainside residence, even though he knew a catastrophic event was coming. The explosive incinerating force that finally did roar down all sides of that mountain when it erupted killed everything within 5 mile radius. It was the deadliest and most economically destructive volcanic event in the history of the United States. Fifty-seven people were killed; 250 homes, 47 bridges, 15 miles (24 km) of railways, and 185 miles (298 km) of highway were destroyed. Harry Truman's body was never found.

While the forces building behind the catastrophic U.S. economic policy of the last administration and the new one may lack the same single day impact, the destruction of livelihood and property that is just over the horizon will dwarf that of the 1980 eruption of Mount. St. Helens.

The slow pace of the system-wide implosion is testimony to the sheer scale upon which this unnatural disaster is unfolding. You can't see it if you're in it, but you can see it from space.

Here's food for thought:

The number of millionaires and billionaires reached all time record highs globally prior to August 2008. The global competition to reach millionaire and billionaire status is the physical manifestation of a broadly human malaise: the valuation of material wealth over personal, familial, ecological and economic health. Greed, I think, is the common name for the disease.

But greed has now reached destructive proportions.

There exists a simple equation, yet to be published or even determined perhaps that goes something like this:

For each million dollars in private wealth, there is a proportional dollar value of resources that must be extracted from the earth and pressed into industrial service to become a part of or in itself a given product. Each of these million dollars in personal wealth then causes the requirement for purchasers and end users of such products. If an insufficient number exist, then technically that representative million dollars in private holdings should be diminished proportional to the reduced market for the correlated product. However, this equations logic fails in the face of credit. And expressing that consumption uniformly is next to impossible, considering the vastly fragmented nature of our economy.

Unfortunately, the correlation between elevated levels of private wealth and the global resource ponzi pyramid are not recognized in modern education and therefore current value systems as dangerous and terminal. On the contrary, private wealth is universally perceived as the reward for hard work and good citizenship. It is our value system that is corrupt, and that is in turn reflected in government, banking, education and family.

Assuming a future that survives this great economic catastrophe, there needs to be a revaluation of human activity.

With the advent of free information flow, education itself becomes somewhat obsolete, since all you can learn in a university can be learned through sources obtained online. That means a population that is increasingly educated, and therefore desirous of the same standard of living, theoretically, as the highest common denominator enjoys, since they come from the lowest, or at least, lower.

The resources and systems of the human race have reached a level of peak capacity, and since the resources of the planet are finite and now shrinking, it is incredibly myopic of us as a species to assume the outcome of this financial crisis will be a resumption of economic growth and development worldwide towards a mutually elevated standard of living.

Rather, the opposite is true. A resumption of the millionaire/billionaire race is sure to result in another version of the current situation.

Economists, as they are called by the post secondary education facilities (universities) they are churned out by, are saddled with the intellectually disfiguring and embarrassing mantra of perpetual growth. However, to criticize capitalism or suggest additional regulation is to be branded a socialist, or worse, a communist. These institutions are designed to churn out replicas and servants of the men who finance them. They no more comprehend the real essence of economics than they do the impossibility of perpetual growth, whose physics counterpart is perpetual motion.

The substitution of empire with economic hegemony in pursuit of that mantra is tyranny, whether practiced by a democratically elected or despotically confiscated government.

To forego this opportunity to evolve our understanding of ourselves and modify our pursuits (and our education institutions) accordingly is to guarantee the continuing disintegration of economy, ecology and ultimately population. For the surest outcome of all on a crowded planet of diminishing resources is warfare.

The opportunity and the lesson before us is to re-tool the whole value system to recognize that competition absent cooperation is self-destructive. If we don't limit our desire and therefore our pursuit of private wealth, we ensure our limited capacity for growth, evolution, and survival.

For me, personally, the pursuit of millions and billions has been severely impaired by the forced revaluation of my financial arsenal. I had a higher net worth when I was in high school than now.

I've learned valuable lessons from this financial catastrophe, foremost among them is that if we all pursue a standard of living representative of millionaires and billionaires, we're essentially doomed as a race.

Henceforth, my children will be taught that the pursuit of great personal wealth is essentially a criminal pursuit, and mastering the art of living modestly is the noble goal.

This is the one of the best presentations of the sixties that I have ever
seen online. It is very well done. Just click on the link and sit back and
enjoy the memories.

For those of you too young you may find this interesting also.

This is the
way it was.

From Gaia/~Pepper Lewis: "There is a definite wisdom in reading and listening to the channeled messages of others and in attending the new and the next seminar. There is also a definitive and direct bridge to wisdom that is deeply enhanced by the steady and practiced awareness of Spirit in your life.

During channeling, a naturally occurring substance is released into your energetic lifestream. This calming, restorative and endorphin-like substance invokes an almost immediate sense of well-being that enhances and deepens your own natural knowing. As you continue to trust your abilities and explore your relationship with the divine, you will access subtler and sweeter realms. You may notice that your connection to the physical planes also lightens as the density that has limited you yields its boundaries and begins to favor less constricting environments.

Access to divine wisdom through channeling is natural. The language of the divine is native to you because your natural state is as Spirit. You have only dressed yourself in filaments and fibers that resemble a human body. You have cloaked yourself in human form and adapted to the the lower five sensory receptors, but there are others from which to choose and they are available to those who draw near enough to claim them." ~ Gaia

- A lecturer when explaining stress management to an audience,
raised a glass of water and asked "How heavy is this glass of water?"

Answers called out ranged from 20g to 500g.

The lecturer replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter.
It depends on how long you try to hold it.

If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem.

If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my right arm.

If I hold it for a day, you'll have to call an ambulance.

In each case, it's the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes."

He continued, "And that's the way it is with stress management.
If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later,
as the burden becomes increasingly heavy,
we won't be able to carry on. "

"As with the glass of water,
you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again.
When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden."

"So, before you return home tonight, put the burden of work down.
Don't carry it home. You can pick it up tomorrow.
Whatever burdens you're carrying now,
let them down for a moment if you can."

So, my friend, Put down anything that may be a burden to you right now.
Don't pick it up again until after you've rested a while.

Here are some great ways of dealing with the burdens of life:

* Accept that some days you're the pigeon,
and some days you 're the statue.

* Always keep your words soft and sweet,
just in case you have to eat them.

* Always read stuff that will make you look good
if you die in the middle of i t .

* Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be
recalled by their maker.

* If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

* If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

* It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply be kind to others.

* Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time,
because then you won't have a leg to stand on.

* Nobody cares if you can't dance well.
Just get up and dance.

* Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.

* The second mouse gets the cheese.

* When everything's coming your way,
you're in the wrong lane.

* Birthdays are good for you.
The more you have, the longer you live.

in my case turning 29, 22 times, sounds better than 50

* You may be only one person in the world,
but you may also be the world to one person.

* Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

* We could learn a lot from crayons... Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull.

Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

*A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

Have an awesome day and know that someone
has thought about you today

Released! By Karen Bishop

We’re in the midst of some interesting energies now…
an unusual combination
that we may perhaps, not be used to.

In times past when we encountered waves of light,
we may have experienced a strong sense
that it was indeed here,
with miracles abounding,
surges felt in our physical bodies,
or even waves of overload and tension.

This new plateau many of us are finding ourselves on…
this new rung on the ascension ladder…
is a very subtle one indeed.

The light is here,
but in a much more gentle way than we may be accustomed to.

If we take notice, we may find
that just what we need arrives for us
in an effortless way.

Small things that we may have only briefly wished for
or perhaps felt we needed,
seem to show up all by themselves.

It is as if they are saying,
“Here I am. Did you call?
Can I help you out and make your life easier?”

Special kindnesses are arriving as well,
and after the past two years,
they may seem to stand out
like an island oasis in a vast dry desert.

This new magical light is extremely gentle and subtle,
and may even go unnoticed
if we are too busy, stressed, or focused elsewhere.

But this gentle energy is important
for other reasons as well.

In times past,
those of us who embodied large amounts of light
could at times be dynamic, charming, full of life,
and our energy could easily fill a room.

We were usually noticed wherever we went,
people glommed onto us,
we were in demand,
and had just maybe,
become accustomed to this way of being.

Standing out above others,
we were bright lights,
and were usually well liked and desired.

We also knew who we were
and what we were here to do.

Now things are a bit different.
We are for the most part, invisible.
We are no longer noticed.
We are not desired or “seen.”
No one seems to want what we are offering.
No one wants to listen to us,
and it may even appear that no one even cares about us.

So what is going on?

We are, just like this new light,
becoming much more subtle.
In times past, we embodied more ego energy,
and ego energy creates different outlets for energy
to pour through and utilize.

Real and true light of a higher order
is indeed very subtle.

It does not ask or need to be seen,
it does not take up much of the space,
as it resides in another space altogether,
and it is not about self.

It is not particularly aware of itself,
it does not “intentionally” try to bring energies up or heal, and it has no particular agenda. It simply is.

Several months ago,
a new acquaintance asked me to evaluate
a piece of turquoise jewelry
she had found out in the wilderness.

She said that whenever she wore it,
bad things happened to her.

Looking into this stone, much was revealed.

It had been worn by many ancient women ,
and it was a valuable and highly revered piece of jewelry.

But it was very subtle in regard to its reverence.

This stone had been handed down
from one generation to another,
but in a quiet non-assuming way.

There was no fanfare, no ceremony
or right of passage as it passed on to another.

And the women of this culture
embodied the same energy as well.

They were precious, non-assuming, very gentle,
loving, and knew exactly who they were.

The reason “bad things” happened
when my acquaintance wore this piece,
was because there was a vast mis-match
in the way the women of the past
who had worn this piece
and the way my acquaintance ran their power.

I have been blessed to have had the opportunity
to visit many ancient sites in the area
of the southwest where I live.

It was very common for the ancients
to create the most powerful places
in a very non-assuming way.

The more majestic, noticeable,
and obvious places simply served
as “covers” or illusions for these sites.

The real and true power
was usually contained much further away and removed from these other brilliant and noticeable places
within or near the sites.

In this way, the power was subtle and discreet.

But to a true bearer of light
and to one who is connected to a higher vibration,
these true power spots are very evident.

Higher energy is indeed subtle
and non-assuming in many ways.

I have been writing for many years
that ceremony and intentional spiritual rituals
are not necessary.

This is old energy.

As we are becoming the new angels of the earth now,
we are indeed becoming much more subtle
and gentle ourselves.

This is why we are now going unnoticed.

Our old roles of carrying light
in order to lift up the planet
and make a change are indeed over.

In this way,
we can experience a substantial loss of identity now.

Even though the ascension process creates
a loss of identity in small and incremental steps,
this last phase of completion
has created an extremely new and different “us.”

We may go unnoticed when
we had not had this experience before.

We may feel that we are no longer needed.

We may feel a loss of value or purpose.

Being a very dynamic person,
I am in the midst of re-defining myself now
when I enter different situations.

It is time for me to “get real,”
even if I thought I was indeed very real before.

I will say to you again,
that we will indeed be noticed
and needed by those who are able to “see” us,
and by those who are in a space
and at a level where we can all easily connect.

I am blessed to be able to spend a lot of time
with my grandchildren now.
The children very easily connect to us.
We are all at the same level,
as they are very advanced
and have vibrated higher from the get go.

Because of this latest arrival
into a higher vibrating reality for some of us,
we may also find that we have been released
from old entrapments.

For the longest time,
we were literally “trapped”
by the lower vibrating realities
and by lower vibrating individuals.

In addition,
we may have been misled as well in various situations during this time, and thus,
we still may need to release
and let go of any anger, resentment,
or feelings of confusion
and hurt about being misled.

We were held in these lower vibrating spaces
because we had agreed to bring up the vibration
of that particular space,
or rather a particular rung of the ascension ladder.

Being in this space until the very end
(so that enough souls could be affected and get on board), could easily create edginess,
an intolerance for these lower vibrations,
and great irritation.
As if swatting flies or irritating disturbances
in our energy fields,
this time is now ove
r and we can now rest
and take a much needed breather.

As our old role and purpose is now over,
we are being released in many ways.
In this way, individuals and situations
may suddenly become dis-connected from us,
while others will become closer.
Yes, we have been released,
we have been released, we have been released.
And even though we still have egos attached
(one of the challenges of becoming non-physical
while still physical!),
if we can know that being released
or “dumped” simply means
that we no longer belong with lower vibrating energies,
we can come to realize
that we have indeed graduated.

But there is more great news to celebrate as well…..

2009 will usher in the energy of the “pairings.”

Many of us will be paired with perfect partners.

The higher we evolve,
the more we find that we are not matched with partners
for reasons of matching vibration and energy
that needs healing,
but more for the simple pleasure of each other’s company as companions of a higher order.

In this way,
our partners will be a joyous addition to our lives.

Many doors will open for us now.

We are so divinely protected,
that doors will also close.

We will find that what we are in alignment
with will match up for us very easily and effortlessly,
and what we are no longer a match for,
will be blocked from us,
even if we believe it is indeed
what we thought we desired.

In regard to closed doors,
a new and better door will immediately open
if we trust that all is right where it needs to be.

This releasing energy is like a dis-connect
from things that were holding us down
or keeping us back.

Even in regard to simple things
like becoming entangled with electric floor cords,
or perhaps tripping over things
that seem to want to keep us “down,”
this sudden and final act
of being released
will create a freedom
that we have not experienced for a long while.

And because of this,
we may feel very fatigued, tired,
and simply want to flop down on a bed
or couch and SLEEP for a while.

The “pulling” of prior attachments
is no longer present,
so then, a new emptiness and freedom
can create less resistance energy
and thus a final letting go with a big exhale
and letting down in the form of a deep sleep.

This is a time for much needed self-care
and putting self first.

A massive phase has just been completed
and we now need to turn our attention
to ourselves for a while.

Unusual weight gain has been prevalent
with many over the past two years,
but for a different reason
than the common ascension symptom
of abdominal weight gain.

Stress and upheavals are the main culprits here.

And please know that certainly not everyone
fits into these writings,
as there can be many reasons for weight gain.

Now, many will find that they desire to dive
into self care…

.attention to healthy eating and exercise
and the like.

We can now get back on track.

For many, any suffering will cease,
if we choose to realize that we are now free.

Free and in readiness for a very new beginning.

Much love and continued gratitude.

Until next time,

By Karen Bishop

Cosmic Particles Of Truth

The Re-birth Of Earth By Steve Rother


From Steve: In this message the group
gave us a current overview
from three different perspectives.

They looked at current events in relationship
to the Earth's changing role,
the sun's changes
and how that will affect everyone.

On the cosmic level they mentioned
an event that is taking place now
that they say fits into the larger picture quite well.

They talked about the particles
from what we call solar storms
to the seeds of the universe.

They also related that there are times
when these seeds are now being
directly deposited into Earth's magnetosphere.

They say it is an intentional planting of seeds,
intentional for the re-birth of planet Earth.

You call see the article from NASA
that describes what is taking place
from a scientific perspective here.

NASA Web Site December 16th 2008

From an energetic perspective,
they said this was the overlay of the hologram
of the third Earth.
It is in motion now. Hang on, here we go!

Have a great new year with lots of Big Hugs
and gentle nudges,


(You can see the video of this message here)

Greetings from Home
Magical Moment

This time is magical.
This place is magical
because you have set it into motion.
You have set your intent
to have a magical experience on this planet
and it is starting to happen.
One by one you are being triggered
into the things you love to do;
you are being triggered into the sacred contracts
that you set for yourself.
You knew what you wanted to do,
and you chose your direction.
You placed a veil between the two parts of your brain
to completely obliterate your memories of Home
and your own power of who you are.
Then you came in to play a game of Hide and Seek.
You bumped into walls and other people,
all the thinking you have done wrong or made a mistake.
In fact, you were simply wandering around
trying to find that connection
, that part of Home which has you completely connected through your own higher self.

Now that is becoming more important.

We wish to give you an overview on
several different levels today.
We are going to show you a little bit
of what is happening on both the cosmic level
and on the Earth level.
Then we will tell you the possibilities on the personal level,
for many of you are now prepared to move.
You have placed yourself
at the edge of the cliff waiting
for that gentle breeze to push you off.
Well, a gentle breeze has just come along.
We are known for gently pushing people off the cliff.
That is one of the things we love to do
as we spread our wings,
to re-mind you of who you really are.
This time we will share with you
some of the overviews of not what is ahead,
not necessarily what is in your future
or what your destiny is,
but simply the direction you are going
and the overview of what is taking place on Earth
to accommodate this.
Cosmic Overview

We will speak first on the cosmic level,
because cosmic events are starting to form
in your section of the universe.
The cosmic events are starting to take place to build
to a climax which we will simply call an event.
That is all that is being referred to,
even in your scientific world at this moment.
But everyone who is watching sees only one thing:
it will be a big event.
Nobody knows exactly how it is going to happen
or how it is going to take place.
Let us share with you our perspective.

First, you are having connections with the sun
which you have had for a number of years.
It has to do with the re-structuring
of the magnetics of Earth
and has been going on for some time,
reaching a conclusion a few years back.
What also took place is that a lot of the solar flares
coming through the sun were energy from Home.
It is energy through the central sun
directed through your own sun;
the solar flares are explosions
that occur space from the energy contained
within the sun.

The challenging part is that when you measure
the energy of any one of these bursts
you would realize that only three of those bursts
could be contained within the sun,
and yet you have seen hundreds such bursts.

Where is the energy coming from?
What is happening?
Is there a chemical reaction going on in the sun?
What is taking place?
We tell you the sun is not what you think it is.
It is not an object of its own.
It is a dimensional portal for energy
and has been from the very beginning of time.
Even the warmth and gamma rays
that help you live on this planet
are constantly coming into your world
from that portal.
It is a portal that comes directly from Home
through the Central Sun,
so things that are set in motion
will normally happen through your sun.
It is your energy distribution network.

There are two events unfolding right now
to accommodate what is ahead.
Scientists believe these to be new discoveries,
things that have been happening for a very long time
that they have just discovered.

However, this is not the case;
these things have never happened before.
One of these events is the melding of the Earth’s magnetic field with the sun’s magnetic field.
The second is the recent discoveries
regarding the particles contained in a solar storm.
We would never have used the word solar storm
to describe this event.
These two discoveries work together
to open the magnetic field of Earth
just long enough to fill it
with a generous amount of these seeds.

This is all in preparation for a big,
yet undefined, event to come.

Earth Sun Connection

From the larger perspective,
we will tell you the interactions
between the sun and the Earth are changing.
The earth is being charged by the sun once again;
the first time was a magnetic charge
from the solar flares.
Now the sun and earth have formed a connection point.
It has been labeled as a portal
because the two energy fields of the Earth and sun occasionally connect and stretch out through time and space to connect the energy fields of each one.

During those times,
particles are passed from one to the other.

You have known these occurrences
only as solar storms to this point,
because that is the only word you have been able
to use to understand what this is.
However, it is much more than this;
it is the life force of the universe.
If you were talking about the physical body,
we would call it sexual energy;
this is the life force of the energy of All That Is
that is flowing between things.

These solar particles created planet Earth
in the first place.

These particles could be called particles of possibilities, because they will carry with them anything you create
in the process.

Re-member, it is your creation
for you are the creators of Earth.
There is no grand plan in place.
There is no bearded god who looks like Charlton Heston
that is going to stand over everybody
saying what is right and what is wrong.
You are creating your reality
with every thought that you have.

The Earth is adjusting to your thoughts.

That is who you really are;
you create the path just seconds before
your foot hits the ground,
because you expect it to be there
and therefore it is created.
Your relationship with Earth
and all the cosmos will be clearer in the next three years
as some of these events unfold.

Birth of the Third Earth

As you find the Earth and sun connect,
some of the things that have been called solar flares,
or coronal mass ejections,
will be further understood
because these particles are passing life to planet Earth.
Planet Earth began as one of these particles.
It began with an energy field around
one of these particles and the field began to grow.
It began to give form to the intention of god.
God had a thought to create planet Earth.
Many of you think of god as an omnipresent being
more powerful than everyone else,
when it is actually you who are that thought.
When you think of things of that nature,
you create them.
You have been creating something
we call the Third Earth,
a thought of god.
It is your collective thoughts of
what you would like to have
and what you would like to see take place on planet Earth
as it evolves.

Your thoughts have formed a hologram
for many forms of light.

With your light,
as you have a thought and as you create something
with your thoughts,
you send a beam of light.

When many of those beams cross
at different angles they create
a three-dimensional object
called a hologram from this particle.

The hologram that you have created
of the Third Earth is now
in the process of over-imprinting
the original hologram of Earth.

You are redesigning planet Earth.

A while back someone asked,
“Tell us more about the sick Earth.
How can we help planet Earth
to heal and to recover and move to the next level?”
We told you very clearly
that the Earth is not sick.
She is pregnant.
She is about to give birth.
That is what you are looking at.
She is giving birth to your thoughts.
The Third Earth is being born;
the seeds are now entering through
the particles that you are now receiving
through the sun.
You are starting to see new discoveries of things
that have just started to happen.
It is incredibly exciting from our perspective,
because we see you pulling the veil apart
every part of the day
to see what is really taking place.

Higher Vibration Hologram Over-Imprints Original Hologram

You will experience things start to unfold.
On a collective basis you will see changes
taking place in the business sector,
as well as all organizations including governments.
If the template or base of the company
will embrace and adapt to the age of empowerment,
then it will flourish.
Most companies and organizations
will have some changes they must deal with.
How they deal with those changes
will determine their future in most cases.
If the collective can not adapt to the higher vibration
it will fall apart very quickly.
The economic flow problem you are now experiencing is
an example of this.
You will see more of the same,
because when you have a high vibrational planet
and a low vibrational planet
the hologram over-imprints the original hologram.
Those elements which are not of a high enough vibration
to make the shift will have difficulty,
and many times will fall apart.
Yet, this is perfect on your path
because the Shiva must come in
and destroy everything
so that the Shakti can build it anew.
That is what is taking place on the larger scale.
You will see it happening everywhere—
not just in the economic systems and organizations.
You will see it with groups of people or friends,
and in your own environment on many levels.
Without warning something will fall apart,
or you will lose something
only to make room for something else even better.
There is nothing wrong with this process,
as it is exactly what you have been asking and waiting for.
It is the ascension process
and the evolution of Earth
that you have set into motion yourselves.
Take this opportunity to shine your light
every place that you can.
This is the trigger, the time to celebrate your light.
The Earth is pregnant and
she will be giving birth to the new Earth—
your creations, your designs,
a place that will support you no matter what you do,
no matter which direction you try to go.
You have created for yourself a magical environment.
Do not fear it now that it is finally coming.
Step forward and create it
into exactly what you need.

As the Earth is going through a pregnancy,
she will go through some grumpy times
just like any woman going through pregnancy.
There will most likely be some hiccups
in this pregnancy,
but you can nurture her and work with her.

You can work to coach the Earth
through this pregnancy, and to help bring this next evolutionary process of your own design right here,
right now.

This is the creation of Heaven on Earth.

It becomes imperative that you
now step into your own right,
and that you now step into your higher vibration
that has been waiting there for you
to hold your energy.
Only you can do it.
Nobody else can take that step for you.
We can push all we want,
but if you are not willing to walk to the edge of that cliff
and spread your wings,
you will never know that you can fly.
You will never understand
that you cannot go into something
without creating the magic around it.
You will always have it.
You may think that you just happened
to fall into this or into that,
but we tell you that you can only experience it
if you are out there falling.
So get out there and fall.
Get out there and make mistakes.
If you wish to call them mistakes,
that is fine.

Whatever it is, the forward direction
at this point in your lives is
what will make all the difference
in creating your reality to your liking,
instead of the default
answer that will be handed
to those who do not create their own reality.

New Rules

Times have changed, dear ones.
You are no longer sitting here as a result of circumstances. You are sitting here by your own accord.
Everything in your life is by your own conscious design.
Take responsibility and bring yourself
full of light, love and laughter first.
Fill that cup first with your passion
and doors will open for you to spread it
throughout the universe.
The doors will open for you to continue to create
the Third Earth.
They will open for you to create something magical
that has never been there before.

The time is now.

We are incredibly excited,
for all eyes throughout the universe
are watching planet Earth.

Skeptics have thought that planet Earth
would never work without the rules,
guidelines, and the things that you thought
you needed to keep you in place.

Instead, you took the rules off and said,
“Let us play a game with no rules at all,
a game with no pre-direction.
Let us play a game that is totally up to us
and see if we can find our passion,
see if we can find everything
that we wanted to find.”

It is before you now,
directly on your path in whatever direction you move.
It is easy for you to take a look right
at this moment and say,
“Well, here is the direction we are going
and here is where I am going to be five years from now.”

We ask you to please not use the old forms of creation any longer, for they will severely limit you. If you expect to go here, spirit has to scale down the plans for you in order to make that happen. Let it go. Do not set limits for yourself or worry about the destination. The destination is the illusion. It is the journey, all the experiences that you have from one point to the other, that matter. Those experiences are what life is about. You are not spirits trying to awaken from the dream. Awakening is easy. You just die and go Home, and that is that. No problem. Staying here and carrying the light within your physical body in your daily experiences is where the challenge is, and you are doing incredibly well.
Preparing for a Cosmic Event

You will witness cosmic events.
You will see excitement from the scientists
who follow those cosmic events;
because they can see that something big is building.

They still do not know what it is or exactl
y the direction it is headed,
but neither does anyone else
because you have not finished the creation yet.

You have simply opened the door.

This is your job, not ours.

We are not here to help you stay on your path.

However, we are here to help you re-member
who you really are
and what you came in with from the beginning.
This is an empowered society
that you are building
unlike any society you have built before.

Can you imagine a society established
with customs instead of laws?

It is what you are creating, dear ones,
a place where each person is encouraged
to carry their own empowerment
without the need for leaders
to take us here or to take us there.

This is why we have asked you to begin spelling god
with a little “g,”
so you can find an entity to take your hand
and walk one step to the next along
with you instead of sitting
on a high pedestal telling you which way you have to go.

It is time for new relationships..
It is time to take your power in any way
that you can to move into that area of passion,
and even into those areas
that you are somewhat afraid of.
Yet, when you do, if you will just reach out your hand,
you will see all the others right there,

There was a very wise man who once said,
“I have figured out how to get everything
I want in my life.
I do it by helping other people get what they want in their lives.”

That is the cycle.
That is the process you have come with
for you are those who are called Lightworkers.
It is a chosen title, not one we put on you,
but a title that you put on yourself.
You are the ones who have agreed
to open those doors.
You are the ones who have agreed
to be the mirrors to people
as they start to awaken,
so that you can reflect their magnificence
the same way that we reflect yours.

You have come so far, so fast.
None of this was expected and
we are so incredibly in love with you because you are us.
You are the hand of god on planet Earth.
You have manual dexterity in your world that is divine.
It is your nature.
We are so honored to be in the room with you,
not the other way around.
You have created our greatest hopes and dreams already
and now you are taking it even further.
We only have three little reminders for you.

Treat each other with the greatest of respect
for you are looking in the eyes of god.
Nurture one another every chance you get
and as your path becomes difficult,
share that with others so that they may soften their path.

Know that it is a beautiful game
you are playing here on planet Earth
and play well together.

- it is time
to move out of the clutches of a 3D world
and, yet, if we do NOT ask to be released from this world
it will hold onto us, forever

it is time
to move up into this higher dimensional earth
and, yet, if you do NOT ask to enter it,
it will be there, and, you, will still be WHERE you are

command, and, demand,
in 100% alignment with your mission, and, your purpose
and, the doors to it, will be opened for you, like magic
it is there, for many, NOT just there, for a few

brightest blessings of energy, light and love to all
i am Susan

Dead Ringers
by Pastor Swope

printed with the author's permission

September 12, 2008, 4:23 p.m. A Metrolink commuter train with 225 aboard slams into Union Pacific freight train on winding route in Chatsworth. It leaves 24 people dead and almost 150 injured.

One of those who died in that horrible accident was Charles Peck. Medical examination of his body showed that he had died quickly after the collision, almost instantaneously. But for hours after his death, his family received a total of 35 calls from his cell phone.

At 9:08 p.m., nearly five hours after the crash, Peck's fiance Andrea Katz received one of those calls, but when she answered, all she heard was static. Despite hearing nothing from the other side, she told him to hang on and that help was on the way. Whenever they tried to call him back, all the calls were routed to the voicemail.

When the rescue efforts stopped at the scene and the rescue workers turned to the grim task of recovery, another call came from his phone, and the search crews decided to trace it. They found it had come from the first train, so they went back to scour the rubble in hopes of finding him alive. The last phone call came from Charles Peck's phone at 3:28 a.m., almost an hour before they found his lifeless body.

This story made national news when it happened, and has now become very well known.

A few weeks earlier, I myself had a close shave with death and had been in the hospital for a week with cardiology issues. While I was there, a case management services person had visited me and offered help with getting my affairs in order in case the unexpected might happen. I don't remember how we came to the topic of the paranormal, but she eventually stayed a while and told me some amazing stories. She used to be a caregiver at a hospice and had experienced amazing things. There are extraordinary paranormal happenings that occur at the end of terminal patients' lives.

Though the stress that had put me in the hospital to begin with was not pleasant, I knew God had brought me there for a reason. This I am sure was one of them.

In the last few months of research that I have made in the area of the supernatural and the end of life, I have been astonished, amazed and comforted. I am gathering these astonishing stories together in a book which I am tentatively calling, Ushered through the Veil. One of the most frequent phenomena that occurs at the end of life with terminal patients is the same occurrence that happened to the family and fiance of Charles Peck.

Phone calls from the dead.

Sometimes, like in the case of Peck, the family receives a phone call from the phone of the deceased. It could come from a cell or a landline in the deceased's uninhabited home. Other times, just before the terminally ill patient dies, they receive a phone call from a long departed loved one. In many instances the numbers had even been disconnected but they still appeared on caller ID.

Every time the living picks up the phone, all they hear on the other end is static. There have been instances of those who receive the calls recording them, only to find voices in the recording that were not perceptible to the human ear at the time. Here are two of the tales that I have received, one of each type.

Mark Prebost had lived a good long life, and had outlived most of his family and friends. Tragically, in reaching the ripe old age of 93, he had outlived many of his children as well. When he was diagnosed with prostate cancer, he took it with a grain of salt. He would often say he lived longer than he would ever have thought, but still he would miss his family. He especially loved the parties.

The disease ravaged the elderly man, and the pain was severe and constant. His elderly daughter and her children took care of him in his home, rotating the times they stayed with him until the cancer that had spread through his body finally took his life one cold October day. The daughter was relieved, since her elderly father had gone through so much pain in the last few months, and even though she did not believe in an afterlife, she comforted herself with the fact he was no longer suffering.

His funeral was sparse since he had few friends and relatives left alive. After the funeral, those who did attend went to the daughter's house for a memorial service and dinner. As the night wore on, they kept getting phone calls with dead air. Finally, the daughter noticed the caller ID. The calls were coming from her father's house. There was no one there; she had the keys. They received a few more calls during the evening, and she let the answering machine pick them up.

The next day, out of curiosity, she reviewed the final two phone calls that the machine had recorded. She heard on the tape the faint voice of her father saying, It's okay Margie, I'm okay, and Your Momma is with me, all is good.

Like so many EVPs, the speech is faint and hard to hear, but Marge was sure of what she heard. Her father was saying goodbye and letting her know that he still existed in some form - a form that was safe, happy and with the wife that he had loved and lost so many years ago.

It did not look good for Lisa. The teenager had gone through years of treatment but the anguish of the chemotherapy seemed to be all for naught. The leukemia had finally overwhelmed her body, and she was in the last days of her short young life.

Her father sat in vigil beside her, holding her hand and wiping her brow as she sweat while the final battle raged within her fragile body. Her mother had passed a few years earlier in a horrific car crash. In those last days, her father sat by, powerless, as Lisa cried out for her mother. He tried to comfort her but it seemed that his presence, though ever caring, was not enough.

As the father sat with her on her last night with a nurse by her side, the phone rang. He left Lisa alone with the nurse for a few moments to answer it, but on the other side there was a large amount of static. He thought for a second that through the static he had heard a woman's voice say something, but it was indiscernible. After he turned the phone off, he checked the caller ID to see who it was that had called.

The answer stopped him in his tracks.

The phone number was that of his house, five years ago. The number had long been disconnected, right after the death of his wife. He tried to call back but got the familiar robotic woman's voice advising him that the number was indeed no longer in service.

Immediately, he was called back into the room by the nurse. His daughter was passing. She died within a few minutes of the mysterious phone call. A phone call that he still believes was made by his long deceased wife. And upon reflection, he is sure the faint words he had heard through the static had said, She will be safe with me.
