So Now What?

Here we are in beautiful Arizona in the desert.  Not a place I thought I would live and certainly not be enjoying.  I have never spent the “winter” months wearing shorts and a tank top, not even for a few days.

RV living is taking its toll and yet there is a simplicity that isn’t found anywhere else.  As you know Mariah jumped ship or trailer in December and I trust she is still having the time of her life in San Bernardino, CA.  You can read about her adventures under the tab for Dog and Cat.  Zoiya has had enough and has been pretty unhappy the last month.  You can read about her last few months under the same tab.

As for Bryan and I we are also feeling the bitter/sweet relationship with this lifestyle.  When we started on this journey we didn’t plan on living in 17ft for years or even for months.  It was a way to get us to where spirit wanted us to be.  A means to an end, we aren’t seeing the end and it is becoming stressful to say the least.

So here we are.  There is amazing energy here and we have found a spiritual community.  We have traversed many obstacles and holes on our path, i.e., unexpected car repairs, gas prices, trailer repair and maintenance.

Although we are experiencing a financial hardship we find ourselves living a peaceful and loving existence.  We meditate daily asking for guidance.  We are guided to create communities here, communities of light and love.  The vibration here is dense compared to the Pacific Northwest.  At the same time we have been exposed to more education, tools, spiritual teachers, spiritual experiences than we have had the privilege of in the last 3 years.  Our focus was RainBow Ridge Center for Greater Awareness and that is where we put all our energy.  We gave everything we had for a community of light and love in the beautiful Pacific Northwest that we dearly love and we couldn’t have sustained that loving place for three years without the support of that community.

There are many “seers” saying that this area will be one of the first in the Ascension and creation of a new world.  I can believe it as there are vortex and lay lines upon lay lines all over this valley.  The more I get to know the more I understand why we were asked to come here.

We are doing everything imaginable to create opportunities,  but it’s slow going. We have more month at the end of the energy flow.  The “snow birds” are beginning to fly back to their northern homes away from the intense heat of the desert.  Will there be jobs opening?  Will there be anyone left here in the valley to participate in what we have to offer?One thing we know for sure, it will not be a healthy living situation for us in a 17ft Travel Trailer in 117 degree heat.  There are no trees here, just dust, rocks, and beautiful blue sky.

Knowing us, you know we have left no rock unturned.  This has been a most interesting learning curve.  Bryan was excited to move to a place that would appreciate he talents as a window cleaner extraordinaire.  Oh!  Yes, well to put things in proper perspective, the business are ALL corporate owned and impossible to get a foot in the door, the residential areas are Home Owner Association dictated.  Then the realization that people don’t want the sun shinning into their homes,  they are doing what they can to keep it out.  Now we are coming into the summer and there will be a window of opportunity to wash windows between 6am -10am, after that the air temperature will evaporate the water right out of the bucket.  Okay maybe not that extreme, but we have been warned by the locals to prepare.  We are blessed to have air conditioning in our little home.  We have been told that everyone gets things done before noon and then they don’t come out of their homes until after 6pm.   Slaves to air conditioning, been there done that. Weird way to live.

Once again Bryan finds himself filling application after application out.  He’s even mentioned black market organ sales. I have convinced him to whole off until he get an answer about a very promising maintenance position that he has been pursing relentlessly.   The position doesn’t start until after the first week of April and it’s part time.

I have found a place to see clients one day a week and a place to sell few sun catchers and Power Pendants that I have made recently. I will be starting a Family Constellation Circle in April.  Also, working on establishing an Ecstatic Dance one day a week for us to do our thing.  It is a little like moving in molasses and taking more time to manifest than I am used to.

We have exhausted our resources to get this far.  What we know is we are all one and if we didn’t ask for help we would not be walking our talk.  Yes, we are asking you to help us out.  We are asking for financial donations, it feels so right to be here facing the challenges and trusting spirit.   If you are called to help us, you can donate through our PAY PAL account or you can send a money order to Diane Light or Bryan Flowers or in both our names to:

12959 W. Grand Ave  #10

Surprise, AZ  85374

 

We know that there is a time to give and a time to receive.  We have so much love in our hearts and know how good it feels to help others.  We encourage others to reach out, that’s what we do as a family.

ForWard Movement for 2012 Begins; Morning Blessing by Rev. Angela

Morning Blessing: 01.16.12
Forward Movement for 2012 Begins.
“The best success I can dream for my life: to have spread a new vision of the world.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Dear Anna,

The conversion energies of passing from one realm into another will finally be picking up speed after this week. The recent weeks of the New Year have been spent in quiet communication with the Great Awakening energies. As Earth and her inhabitants move closer to our destined change the portal we know as the year 2012 leads to a deeper orientation of placement and position within the structure of Creation. Supernatural forces have reset our inner spiritual energy. The human collective kingdom made a decision to relinquish our lesser modes of being and allow a disintegration of the constrictions of Self we held, of what we thought ourselves to be, and to emerge with a far deeper sense of our true selves, the truth of our Souls.

That act of changing from one use, or purpose, to another is considerably tricky when billions and billions of life forms must make the change unharmed and in tact. Remember, at no other time in history has a planet been able to rearrange its complete structure and sustain life order during that transition. We are the cutting edge “beta test case” for the entire universe right now. Every heart has agreed to bring back the pure intent of Soul and Spirit into life expression. And we are at the exact place within the experiment in which the Elders of Creation are yelling, “They made it! They transitioned the rampant, discordant phase undamaged and ready to commence toward a new equilibrium of light quotient.”

So what comes next? As I understand it, we stand within a threshold of molecular reconfiguration. At a threshold that announces to us that we no longer spin in Light, Truth or belief as we have in the past. And this week, as well as the two after, will be like a compression point that is inviting an escape for any attitudes, behaviors, or emotions that would attempt to keep us anchored in a paradigm of illusion and separateness. Look around within your own time and reality to see what is ready for release. Do not make the error of perceiving your current disharmonies as pain and suffering. Instead, reference the situations and experiences as opportunities of liberation into spiritual mastery.

While 2012 will not be without its difficult and provocative points, so much of what you will take from your life experiences will be greatly influenced by how you seed your creative processes as you enter this newest phase of shifted awareness and consciousness. We are now engaged in the New planetary story of evolution that is not going to stop or reverse. All that we have journeyed emotionally, physically, and spiritually over the last twenty-five years has prepared us for this year when our thoughts and intentions will magnetize experiences to us as never before.

Your ideas (whether negative or positive) will appear to manifest almost instantly, as your creative abilities are recognized and consciously directed for the good of the whole. Of course, this also means that collectively held perceptions will also demonstrate almost instant collective experiences as well. Cleary then this is not the time for spiritually evolved beings to be caught napping in some ego-protected cocoon. Determine now that you will live 2012 with resolve to move into a deeper, fuller, vaster, relationship with who you really are – not the who the ego thinks you are.

As you dissolve karmic imprints that limit your own creative power, dedicate all your efforts to the collective process. Know that it is your privilege and your responsibility to bring about an end to the profound levels of suffering and ignorance so rampant in the complicated world of the twenty-first century. You are the one that can demonstrate to the many that a spiritual lesson is present in virtually every event that arises before you. You are the one that can require yourself to transcend, or to cut through, the resistance that impedes your own spiritual empowerment.

As you stand within the entrance of a new planetary pathway it is imperative to realize that external forces can no longer dictate how you live. What happens from here on out is the result of an Inner Self knowing. Use this week as a time of deep reflection into a pool of possibility. Each situation in your daily life is touching deeper aspects of you now. Use emotions that float to the surface as hidden treasures that are revealing the need for change. As the Light steadily increases in pressure and position you will find you are driven to utilize the higher intelligence of your Soul nature and to give up the despondent human wants and needs. Observe this week because energies begin to move forward, making recognition of what blocks your spiritual and evolutionary expansion a bit easier to spot.

As always I honor each one of you plowing through life with diligence, determination, dedication, and declaration on the path to destiny –

BLESSING:

It is incredible to be here in 2012! To be in a body reclaiming the heritage of the Divine!
To consciously be Spirit moving as One creative intelligence unfolding into a higher
evolution that spreads its Light farther and farther out until It touches the heartsong
of every living thing is truly humbling. I know that as I sit here feeling the power of
Spirit within me, in my heart, ever flowing, ever expanding the world and everything in
it is doing the same.

As I explore the new spiritual calling that is blanketing the Earth I know the grace of
Soul spreads its presence out before me. . . I feel the full embodiment of my eternal
Self as it penetrates deeper into this contemporary world of form. I accept my role at
this time as the Practice of spiritual principle, right here and now, for the upliftment
and benefit of all. I affirm that goodness awaits me and that every time I ask for
guidance or assistance that it is immediately given. I relax and breathe for there is
nothing that I cannot discover, nothing I cannot interpret because I am backed by
the creative power of the universe and It listens and responds in positive, constructive,
empowering ways — always.

I am so great-full for the week that stretches out before me. Thank you, thank you, thank
you Spirit for touching me with such fondness; I am so pleased to be given a time when
I can consciously repair the connection/disconnection with my Soul. As God’s channeled
grace I release this word into the law knowing, accepting, allowing it to be true and
manifest now. And so it is.

Incredible Edible : The Challenge

Carrots in the car park. Radishes on the roundabout. The deliciously eccentric story of the town growing ALL its own vegetables
By Vincent Graff

Admittedly, it sounds like the most foolhardy of criminal capers, and one of the cheekiest, too.

Outside the police station in the small Victorian mill town of Todmorden, West Yorkshire, there are three large raised flower beds.

If you’d visited a few months ago, you’d have found them overflowing with curly kale, carrot plants, lettuces, spring onions — all manner of vegetables and salad leaves.

Today the beds are bare. Why? Because people have been wandering up to the police station forecourt in broad daylight and digging up the vegetables. And what are the cops doing about this brazen theft from right under their noses? Nothing.

Food for thought: Todmorden resident Estelle Brown, a former interior designer, with a basket of home-grown veg
Well, that’s not quite correct.

‘I watch ’em on camera as they come up and pick them,’ says desk officer Janet Scott, with a huge grin. It’s the smile that explains everything.

For the vegetable-swipers are not thieves. The police station carrots — and thousands of vegetables in 70 large beds around the town — are there for the taking. Locals are encouraged to help themselves. A few tomatoes here, a handful of broccoli there. If they’re in season, they’re yours. Free.

So there are (or were) raspberries, apricots and apples on the canal towpath; blackcurrants, redcurrants and strawberries beside the doctor’s surgery; beans and peas outside the college; cherries in the supermarket car park; and mint, rosemary, thyme and fennel by the health centre.

The vegetable plots are the most visible sign of an amazing plan: to make Todmorden the first town in the country that is self-sufficient in food.

‘And we want to do it by 2018,’ says Mary Clear, 56, a grandmother of ten and co-founder of Incredible Edible, as the scheme is called.

‘It’s a very ambitious aim. But if you don’t aim high, you might as well stay in bed, mightn’t you?’

So what’s to stop me turning up with a huge carrier bag and grabbing all the rosemary in the town?
‘Nothing,’ says Mary.
What’s to stop me nabbing all the apples?
‘Nothing.’
All your raspberries?
‘Nothing.’

It just doesn’t happen like that, she says. ‘We trust people. We truly believe — we are witness to it — that people are decent.’

When she sees the Big Issue seller gathering fruit for his lunch, she feels only pleasure. What does it matter, argues Mary, if once in a while she turns up with her margarine tub to find that all the strawberries are gone?

‘This is a revolution,’ she says. ‘But we are gentle revolutionaries. Everything we do is underpinned by kindness.’

The idea came about after she and co-founder Pam Warhurst, the former owner of the town’s Bear Cafe, began fretting about the state of the world and wondered what they could do.

They reasoned that all they could do is start locally, so they got a group of people, mostly women, together in the cafe.

Incredible Edible is about more than plots of veg. It’s about educating people about food, and stimulating the local economy (pictured Vincent Graff and Estelle)
‘Wars come about by men having drinks in bars, good things come about when women drink coffee together,’ says Mary.

‘Our thinking was: there’s so much blame in the world — blame local government, blame politicians, blame bankers, blame technology — we thought, let’s just do something positive instead.’

We’re standing by a car park in the town centre. Mary points to a housing estate up the hill. Her face lights up.

‘The children walk past here on the way to school. We’ve filled the flower beds with fennel and they’ve all been taught that if you bite fennel, it tastes like a liquorice gobstopper. When I see the children popping little bits of herb into their mouths, I just think it’s brilliant.’

She takes me over to the front garden of her own house, a few yards away.

Three years ago, when Incredible Edible was launched, she did a very unusual thing: she lowered her front wall, in order to encourage passers-by to walk into her garden and help themselves to whatever vegetables took their fancy.

There were signs asking people to take something but it took six months for folk to ‘get it’, she says.

They get it now. Obviously a few town-centre vegetable plants — even thousands of them — are not going to feed a community of 15,000 by themselves.

But the police station potatoes act as a recruiting sergeant — to encourage residents to grow their own food at home.

Today, hundreds of townspeople who began by helping themselves to the communal veg are now well on the way to self-sufficiency.

But out on the street, what gets planted where? There’s kindness even in that.

‘The ticket man at the railway station, who was very much loved, was unwell. Before he died, we asked him: “What’s your favourite vegetable, Reg?” It was broccoli. So we planted memorial beds with broccoli at the station. One stop up the line, at Hebden Bridge, they loved Reg, too — and they’ve also planted broccoli in his memory.’

Not that all the plots are — how does one put this delicately? — ‘official’.

Take the herb bushes by the canal. Owners British Waterways had no idea locals had been sowing plants there until an official inspected the area ahead of a visit by the Prince of Wales last year (Charles is a huge Incredible Edible fan).

Estelle Brown, a 67-year-old former interior designer who tended the plot, received an email from British Waterways.

‘I was a bit worried to open it,’ she says. ‘But it said: “How do you build a raised bed? Because my boss wants one outside his office window.”’

Incredible Edible is also about much more than plots of veg. It’s about educating people about food, and stimulating the local economy.

There are lessons in pickling and preserving fruits, courses on bread-making, and the local college is to offer a BTEC in horticulture. The thinking is that young people who have grown up among the street veg may make a career in food.

Crucially, the scheme is also about helping local businesses. The Bear, a wonderful shop and cafe with a magnificent original Victorian frontage, sources all its ingredients from farmers within a 30-mile radius.

There’s a brilliant daily market. People here can eat well on local produce, and thousands now do.

Meanwhile, the local school was recently awarded a £500,000 Lottery grant to set up a fish farm in order to provide food for the locals and to teach useful skills to young people.

Jenny Coleman, 62, who retired here from London, explains: ‘We need something for our young people to do. If you’re an 18-year-old, there’s got to be a good answer to the question: why would I want to stay in Todmorden?’

The day I visit, the town is battered by a bitterly-cold rain storm. Yet the place radiates warmth. People speak to each other in the street, wave as neighbours drive past, smile.

If the phrase hadn’t been hijacked, the words ‘we’re all in this together’ would spring to mind.

So what sort of place is Todmorden (known locally, without exception, as ‘Tod’)? If you’re assuming it’s largely peopled by middle-class grandmothers, think again. Nor is this place a mecca for the gin-and-Jag golf club set.

Set in a Pennine valley — once, the road through the town served as the border between Yorkshire and Lancashire — it is a vibrant mix of age, class and ethnicity.

A third of households do not own a car; a fifth do not have central heating.

You can snap up a terrace house for £50,000 — or spend close to £1 million on a handsome stone villa with seven bedrooms.

And the scheme has brought this varied community closer together, according to Pam Warhurst.

Take one example. ‘The police have told us that, year on year, there has been a reduction in vandalism since we started,’ she says. ‘We weren’t expecting this.’

So why has it happened?

Pam says: ‘If you take a grass verge that was used as a litter bin and a dog toilet and turn it into a place full of herbs and fruit trees, people won’t vandalise it. I think we are hard-wired not to damage food.’

Pam reckons a project like Incredible Edible could thrive in all sorts of places. ‘If the population is very transient, it’s difficult. But if you’ve got schools, shops, back gardens and verges, you can do it.’

Similar schemes are being piloted in 21 other towns in the UK, and there’s been interest shown from as far afield as Spain, Germany, Hong Kong and Canada. And, this week, Mary Clear gave a talk to an all-party group of MPs at Westminster.

Todmorden was visited by a planner from New Zealand, working on the rebuilding of his country after February’s earthquake.

Mary says: ‘He went back saying: “Why wouldn’t we rebuild the railway station with pick-your-own herbs? Why wouldn’t we rebuild the health centre with apple trees?”

‘What we’ve done is not clever. It just wasn’t being done.’

The final word goes to an outsider. Joe Strachan is a wealthy U.S. former sales director who decided to settle in Tod with his Scottish wife, after many years in California.

He is 61 but looks 41. He became active with Incredible Edible six months ago, and couldn’t be happier digging, sowing and juicing fruit.

I find myself next to him, sheltering from the driving rain. Why, I ask, would someone forsake the sunshine of California for all this?

His answer sums up what the people around here have achieved.

‘There’s a nobility to growing food and allowing people to share it. There’s a feeling we’re doing something significant rather than just moaning that the state can’t take care of us.

‘Maybe we all need to learn to take care of ourselves.’

Excellent Explanation of 3rd, 4th, and 5th Dimensions

The Earth has gone through many ages and these are very long.  We have progressed slowly over thousands and thousands of years. Somehow, the Maya, with a very accurate calendar knew we would reach this date.  It corresponds with what I have been reading ever since Harmonic Convergence which set this last age into focus and work. It has helped to usher in the Age of Aquarius, which is the age of respect of the feminine, which are caring, sharing and love. Men have these traits too, but we have
been through ages when this has been downgraded in men and the domination of women has been prominent.  I believe Earth population is now waking up and realizing that we are all one race–humanity–and that only living with Love is the way to unite us, and that the forces that have been running the world are negative and greedy.  They are about to be ousted and we are going into a beautiful, new Golden age.

As 2012 approaches there is an increasing urgency to this message because we’re all, literally, running out of time to play in the third dimension.
In simple terms, the habit of thinking and feeling and behaving that we know of as the third dimension is going away. Everyone is shifting into a fourth dimensional consciousness and experience, and then into a fifth dimensional consciousness and experience.
However, most people on the planet are not prepared for this Shift. But it is happening nonetheless, and for those who are unaware of what’s going on it will not be an easy or comfortable experience.
Yet this can be a wonderful, enjoyable time as well. With some basic information about what the Shift is, and what “dimensions” are, and with simple tools to help manage our thoughts and feelings, everyone has the ability to evolve their consciousness and move gracefully and joyfully into these higher vibrational realms.
If you don’t know what dimensions are, you are not alone. Most people playing the game of life as we know it in the third dimension are playing without a “rule book” that would explain what the game really is and how one can play it successfully.
This article provides these basic, missing rules. It explains what the third, fourth, and fifth dimensions are, and why they are the most important consideration of your life right now.
If you can understand the structure and play of these dimensions, you can begin to move fluidly through the unprecedented changes of this Shift without fear, without effort, without the tension and anxiety that is, for the most part, the daily habit of our lives.
So, first of all, let me define what dimensions are not.
Dimensions are not places or locations, and they are not a linear progression – 3, 4, 5, 6 – stacked up like pancakes. And the 3rd dimension, or the 4th dimension, is not the chair you’re sitting in, or the walls that surround you, or even the Earth itself. That is form, which exists predominantly in the 3rd and 4th dimensions, and which will still be very much part of the play in the 4th dimension when the 3rd dimension is no longer an option.
In general, dimensions are states of consciousness available to anyone who vibrates in resonance with the specific frequencies and opportunities available within each dimension.
In a way, you could think of each dimension as a different game with a different set of rules as to what is possible and not possible for the beings that choose to play and create there.
So what is the 3rd Dimension?
The third dimension (3D) is a box of rigid beliefs, more or less, with a relatively inflexible set of rules and limitations. Most of us have been playing this game for lifetimes, so we tend to think it is the only game available to us. But nothing could be further from the truth. One of the rigid 3D beliefs that structure our lives – our thinking and feeling and actions – is linear time.
Linear time is an optional belief and structure that let’s us “live” an experience of past and a future… and then we die. Because this belief is the default assumption of mass 3D consciousness, and events seem to validate the belief, most of us think and act as if it’s true.
But now we are all waking up from the illusion of this ubiquitous belief. And as you become more conscious, you realize that time in 3D is actually a time loop. What you experience in “the past” is pretty much what you put your attention on now, and you project that reality into “the future,” and therefore you experience it over and over again.
So the structure of time is quite specific (and limiting) in the 3rd dimension, but your experience of time is quite different (and empowering) as you move into higher dimensions.
Everything in a 3D consciousness is also very conditional. The concept of, for example, ‘unconditional love,’ does not exist in the 3rd dimension. If you experience ‘unconditional love’ or ‘unconditional peace’ you have actually moved into a fourth dimensional (4D) consciousness.
You see, in the earth experience now, we have access to both 3rd and 4th dimensional consciousness, but most of us rarely step out of the well-grooved habits of 3D thinking and feeling.
The 3rd dimension also offers no possibility of choice. We don’t choose our thoughts, feelings, and actions in every moment (that’s a skill of 4D and 5D), instead we react from unconscious beliefs and training to the people and situations that pop up in our space.
Duality provides another rigid structure for 3D experience. Up/down. Left/right. Should/shouldn’t. Since the fall of Atlantis 12,500 years ago, we have become very fearful as a way of life, and in that fear we have learned to narrowly define good and bad, right and wrong, etc. Unconscious judgment permeates 3D thinking.
Moreover, we perceive our 3D experience predominantly with the left hemisphere of the brain, home of the rational mind, and so we use only about 5 to 10 percent of the brain’s capacity to play the 3D game. Most of us suspect the rest of our brain must do something but have no idea what it actually does and how it functions.
In fact, what the rest of the brain enables us to do is function in the higher 4th and 5th dimensions, and beyond.
We already have the potential, all the necessary equipment and wiring, right now, to be fully conscious in all these dimensions. But our habits of thinking and feeling, grooved over many lifetimes, dumbs= us down and limit us to 3D experience. Our left-brain, rational mind only knows what it knows, and doesn’t know what it doesn’t know, and it works tirelessly to keep us within a thin range of objective 3D thinking and possibilities. And we, for the most part, have gone along for the ride. But no longer.
The increasing light energies and frequencies of the Shift are rewiring our brains to allow us access to a much wider range of information and possibility than is available in the 3rd dimension. These light energies are preparing us for 4D and 5D experience, even as they are clearing the rigid 3D “rules” from our consciousness.
So what is the 4th Dimension?
The “rules” of 4th dimensional consciousness provide an enhanced sense of ease, possibility, and capability than the structures of the 3rd dimension.
Time in 4D, for example, is always present time. The focus is only ever this moment, what is happening right now. Our bodies already know only this present time; they can’t know ‘yesterday’ or ‘tomorrow,’ and as conscious beings in our natural alignment in the higher 4th dimension, we function absolutely in this “Now” of present time awareness and attention. When our attention point becomes present time awareness, choice becomes possible again. We can observe any and all events with a sense of detachment, merely as information to consider, and from that still, uncluttered platform we are then, and only then, free to choose our response. In the higher 4th dimension we become response-able.
A concept and possibility known as paradox also becomes available in the present time of 4D consciousness. Paradox simply means that what was true just a moment ago may not be true right now. And what was false a moment ago may no longer be false. Instead of applying rigid, pre-existing definitions to any experience, we choose our preferred version and vibration in every moment.
So as we move into 4D consciousness in present time, with the power of choice and response-ability, and the flexibility of paradox, the ability to alter the game to enhance our happiness and wellbeing becomes available.
Interestingly, 4D consciousness will not be a long-term option after the Shift clears away the rigid structures of 3D consciousness.
The 4th dimension is serving as an essential, but short-lived, stepping stone or vibrational platform from which we will all move into 5th dimensional consciousness. 5D is the target for Earth and all her inhabitants. The archangels have said the entire consciousness of Earth will be a fifth dimensional consciousness by the year 2015.
But although the 5th dimension is the target, the experience of the 4th dimension is essential. We cannot enter 5D directly from 4D. All mental and emotional baggage from the 3rd dimension must be left at the door to the 4th dimension, and we can only enter the 5th dimension after we have become masterful of our thoughts and feelings in the 4th dimension.
Some assembly is required.
So what is the 5th Dimension?
The 5th dimension operates, to a great extent, in a completely differently fashion from the 3rd and 4th dimensions.
Time in 5D is instantaneous time, meaning that everything (all possibilities) occurs in the same place at the same moment. In 5D, you focus your attention and the answer or experience is given to you exactly when and where you focus.
Ask and you shall receive.
In 5D, you don’t have to move or go anywhere for your answers or experiences; everything comes to you easily and effortlessly based upon the attention point and vibration you choose to hold in every moment.
When you are vibrating in 5D consciousness, you don’t create with form as you do in the 3rd and 4th dimensions, you create with light and light patterns and light frequencies. You apply sound and color and geometric shapes. You consciously interact with the Creator and all the Beings of Light.
In this heightened consciousness, the rational mind plays a very minimal role. It returns to a small, specific focus it was intended to have, namely the wellbeing of the physical body.
But before we can move into our vibrational home that is 5D consciousness, we must first become masterful of the vibrations and possibilities of 4D consciousness. This is the focus of the Shift for most people as we head into the ever-accelerating events of 2012.
So how do you become masterful in 4D consciousness?
The Tools of 4D Present Time
As I mentioned, 4D is the ‘right now’ of ‘present time.’ But present time actually has four different levels.
In 2010, we all stepped into the third level. As we move 2012, we will step into the fourth, and final, level. In that level, when you think, ‘I would like an apple,’ the apple is going to appear in your hand. Usually when I say that people get very excited. And it is exciting. However … there is a however.
The vast majority of people on this planet are not prepared to be the masters of their every thought, feeling, and action in every moment. But there’s no option. It’s a required, baseline skill of higher 4D and 5D consciousness.
One of the reasons the 3rd dimension was created was to provide a “playground” in which we each can practice and hone the vibration of our thoughts and feelings. To accomplish this, the 3D playground has a time buffer. Instead of ‘instant manifestation’ there is a time lag between the thought we think and the manifestation or experience of that thought. For the most part, we are very sloppy with this buffer.
Instead of focusing on what we want, and allowing this to unfold over time, we spew anger, frustration, boredom, worry, anxiety, blame, guilt, fear – all kinds of lower, disharmonic thoughts and feelings. We behave as if we can think and feel anything with impunity because we do not see the instantaneous results of our thinking.
But no longer. As 3D linear time is collapsing into a single point of present time, the time buffer is collapsing too. We have less opportunity to practice being aware of our mental and emotional habits before what we think is what we get. This is a very big deal.
Fortunately, some simple energy tools can help you manage your thoughts and emotions in every moment so that you can be prepared for the unprecedented opportunity and challenge of living and creating in present time in the higher dimensions.
These basic energy tools are available for free on our website http://www.masteringalchemy.com but let me explain a few of them here by way of example.
Allow the Shift to clear your unconscious thoughts & feelings
In simple terms, the Shift is using one wave of light frequencies to clear away who we are not, and another wave to remind us who we are. The Shift knows where we’ve stored unwanted, unconscious habits of thought and reactionary emotion, and the light is clearing all this from our vibration.
However, as these lesser thoughts and feelings are cleared, they will come into our awareness, and magnetize people and circumstances to us that mirror these chaotic energies. How do you handle these often-powerful energies when they appear. You allow them. If you can simply observe them with a sense of detachment as they come up – knowing that they are just coming up to be cleared – they will clear quickly, and you won’t even remember what the fuss was all about.
But if you grab hold and engage these chaotic thoughts and feelings, if you insist on feeling guilty or worrying, if you continue to argue that ‘I am not OK’ or ‘They are not OK,’ these energies will not be cleared from your space – and the Shift, as it accelerates ever faster, will become a very bumpy, very ‘not OK’ road for you.
Remember most often what comes up is not even yours; it does not belong to you. Acknowledge it and know that it’s coming up to be cleared… forever. Take a couple of deep breaths, go for a walk, listen to music — but turn your attention point to something of a higher vibration.
Understanding the Lower and Higher 4th Dimension
To simplify another important aspect of the Shift, let’s imagine that the 4th dimension has just two parts to it – a lower 4th dimension and a higher 4th dimension. (This is not technically true, but it’s a useful distinction.)
As I mentioned, form will remain when 3D disappears. We’ll still experience houses and cars and trees. But fear, judgments, blame and guilt, the rights and the wrongs, will disappear. All this dense emotional energy, which is the only thing that prevents us from playing in the higher dimensions right now, will simply be cleared from our space.
However, depending upon the vibration of the thoughts you are thinking as 3D disappears, you will find yourself in either the lower 4th dimension or the higher 4th dimension.
The lower 4th dimension, which is also called the astral plane or dream space, holds all the thoughts ever thought by anyone in the 3rd dimension.
You see, thoughts don’t just disappear after we think them. They live on in the lower 4th dimension, with specific weight, texture, density and emotional charge. And they bond and cluster with all the other thoughts of similar character.
Some thoughts – such as rape, domination, slavery, war, hatred – feel heavy, dense and dark. Conversely, thoughts such as ‘butterflies,’ ‘children playing in the park,’ and ‘flowers blooming on a warm spring day’ feel light and have a simple, airy vibration. Lighter thoughts like these rarely linger in a 3D consciousness. Because in order to align and feel the vibration of, for example, ‘beauty,’ we must step out of 3D consciousness into present time, a higher 4th dimensional space.
Wait, you say, I know ‘Beauty!’ You do, because we’re now living in both the third and fourth dimensions simultaneously, but how often do you align yourself with, and linger on, the feeling of beauty?
It’s a 4D, present-time skill to take thoughts like ‘light,’ ‘airy’ and ‘beauty’ to heart. These vibrations don’t even exist in the hurry up, past/future of the 3rd dimension where it’s very difficult to pause in present time and smell a flower.
But, on the other hand, have you noticed that heavy, uncomfortable thoughts such as ‘I’m not good enough.’ or ‘They don’t like me.’ or ’I’m never going to succeed.’ tend to linger quite a bit longer in 3D consciousness? This is because thoughts are electric and emotions are magnetic. A set of light, airy vibrations like ‘beauty’ or ‘graciousness’ has a low, soft, electrical charge that is expansive and fluid. Whereas heavier, uglier thoughts come highly charged and wrapped in highly magnetic emotions. These thoughts are not only harder to clear than kind, loving thoughts; they also bond magnetically to all other thoughts like them in the lower 4th dimension.
So much of the magnetic field we walk around in – I’m not OK, You’re not OK – has very little to do with who we really are. It’s just the magnetism of one heavy, unconscious thought attaching itself to the magnetism of similar heavy, unconscious thoughts.
You begin to see why it’s vital to become conscious of the thoughts you think and the emotions you throw into your vibrational mix.
Fortunately, the second wave of the Shift is making this easier and easier. As we let go of the heavier energies of Who We Are Not, the light is rewiring us, stepping us up into a higher 4th dimensional vibration where lesser thoughts and emotions are not such a distraction in our general experience.
We start to live in alignment with the heart, and experience the vibrations and consequences of concepts such as ‘I like me,’ ‘I’m happy,’ ‘I’m pleased with myself.’
The alignment with the heart becomes natural because it already is our natural alignment in the higher fourth, fifth and sixth dimensions.
However, some assembly is required.
Any limitations, judgments, denials, blame, guilt, or resentments that we each still argue for, in one way or the other, become like weights on a hot air balloon. They limit how far we can rise within the fourth dimensional range of vibration.
Each of us is 100 percent in charge of the process. The more weight – lower-vibrational patterns of words, thoughts, and emotions – we remove, the higher we rise into the expansive experience of the higher 4th dimension. Here, it is as if we look past the boundaries and limitations, which were always just a habit of observation in 3D. It’s a wider view, a calmer view, and a quieter view. In the upper 4th dimension, you can choose fear or worry, and drop into the lower 4th dimension… but you won’t.
As you begin to align with the heart, very naturally – ‘I Like Me’ – you’re going to find there’s no reason or compulsion to choose an uncomfortable attention point in the lower 4th dimension. It comes naturally and readily because it is the language and vibration of you’re natural well being – if you let it, and if you focus upon it.
It’s a choice.
As the shift accelerates and time collapses and everything is in the present moment, you could still choose your thoughts and feelings unconsciously, out of 3rd dimensional habit, and you would have the opportunity to live that discomfort immediately and fully in your experience.
Or you can choose your thought and emotion in every moment, with focus and awareness, and live the fullness of that experience.
In other words, it’s to your benefit to practice and integrate the ability to choose the contents of your consciousness right now, before it really counts – and that moment is not very far away.
It’s all up to you.
Until now, the center of your head, the place from where you can choose your thoughts and attention point, has been pre-occupied by the thoughts of others. Your Mom-Dad-Teacher-Minister loved you and had an opinion about the best way for you to live your life, and as their thoughts moved in to your head, “You” moved out.
Now it is time to take back ownership of the center of your head. As you recognize and let go of the unnatural thoughts that say, ‘Oh, I can’t do this’ and ‘I can’t do that’ and ‘I must do this,’ you’re going to find that soon all those thoughts, with their sticky interlocking connections in the lower 4th dimension, disappear.
Just putting your attention in present time on ‘beauty’ and ‘well-being‘, or just being ‘happy’ in a state of ‘ease‘, eliminates the lesser vibrations stored within the lower astral fields of the 4th dimension.
Start by playing with the vibration of what I call Living Words. The Archangels very deliberately and precisely selected these words – words such as Certain, Capable, Commanding, Present, Senior, Graciousness and Happy – so that you can most easily clear all the unconscious vibrations from your space.
Choose one word each day and live with it all day, think it and feel it often.
If you practice thinking and feeling these vibrations now, when it doesn’t absolutely count, they will become your habit when it does count.
You begin to gracefully realign with the fullness of “You,” and your natural state of wellbeing lifts you into the higher 4th dimension.
Easy? Kind of.
Simple? Yes.
Does it require awareness and a choice from a present time space? Absolutely.
Can you sit on the sidelines and hope it all turns out? No.
Increased levels of electromagnetic light from the higher dimensions are now flowing within all of us. Many people in the 3rd dimension cannot handle this surge, and they are choosing to step out of their
bodies.
And many, many more will follow as the Shift accelerates
You see, everyone is going home to the 4th and then 5th dimensions, but not everyone is going home on the same timeline, and with the same ease and grace.
How do you choose?
Blessings,

Food Democracy NOW ~ Fighting for safe food

Help us stand up for democracy, farmers and the land – Stop Monsanto GMOs in 2012!

Let’s be honest, 2011 was a difficult year. In retrospect, it was the year that our federal government let Monsanto go wild.

Right now there’s a battle being waged for the future of our food and our democracy and you and your family and everyone who eats is on the front line.

Over the past 20 years Monsanto has led the way in corrupting our democratic institutions, rotating their lobbyists in and out of our federal agencies (Michael Taylor, former Monsanto super lobbyist is now the current FDA food safety Czar), and writing the rules that govern their genetically engineered products while high-jacking science and our democracy.

It’s time to put an end to this corruption. With your help, 2012 will be that year.

We know that times are tough, but if everyone who reads this donates as little as $5 today, we will be able to continue our work to beat Monsanto.

http://fdn.actionkit.com/go/513?akid=444.324185.zwa56q&t=7

Currently, with Monsanto’s help, the USDA has intentionally weakened the agency’s own oversight, handing over the power to complete the required environmental impact statements (EIS) on Monsanto’s own products back to the company. Once again, our government is happy to let the fox guard the henhouse.

This is at a time when the dangers of Monsanto’s flagship products, such as Roundup Ready crops, are being increasingly linked to crops diseases and livestock infertility, and their genetically engineered Bt insecticide gene is failing in fields all over the Midwest.

In 2011, Food Democracy Now! helped expose these major flaws in Monsanto’s GMO products and stood up to our government’s continued collusion with the world’s leading seed and biotech giant.

We need your help today to continue this fight: a donation of $5, $50 or $100 will help us keep the lights on in 2012 to fight for you. We run on a shoestring budget to stretch your dollars. Every little bit helps to create a people powered movement.

If you need any evidence that the Monsanto train is not slowing down, consider this: in the past twelve months Monsanto has had 5 new GMO crops greenlighted by the USDA, including Roundup Ready alfalfa, GMO sugar beets and a new “triple-stack” GMO sweet corn that will put both Monsanto’s Roundup Ready and BT insecticide genes directly on your plate.

In the weeks leading up to Christmas, the Obama administration quietly approved 2 brand new Monsanto GMO seeds, including Monsanto’s drought tolerant corn and Monsanto’s GMO Soybean Vistive Gold, which is engineered to lower its fat content.

If you don’t think that Monsanto won’t stop at anything to push their untested GMOs on the world, think again.

Right now Monsanto’s CEO is working to raise money with the United Nation’s World Food Program to peddle their toxic seeds in troubled countries around the world under the guise of alleviating hunger. If there’s one thing we now know about Monsanto, it’s that they never let a crisis go to waste, but this is appalling.

With your help 2012 will be the year that we put an end to Monsanto’s deceptive and corruptive practices. Chip in today to help make that happen!

There’s nothing we can’t accomplish by working together. Help us stand up for you, your family and family farmers across the globe. We need your help today.

Thanks for participating in food democracy,

Dave, Lisa and the Food Democracy Now! team

P.S – Here are the facts: Monsanto spends billions and employs tens of thousands. To stop them, we just YOU. Chip in what you can today to make sure our movement can survive into the future.

THE ONGOING GLOBAL FINANCIAL WAR IS REACHING ITS FINAL STAGES
Dec. 28, 2011
The ongoing global financial war is reaching its final stages. Multiple reliable sources in three continents are all now reporting that a major breakthrough in the financial logjam is imminent. We can confirm from our own sources (including MI6 and Japanese military intelligence) that a large delegation descended on Washington last week and read the riot act to the Washington D.C. establishment. They have been informed the Federal Reserve Board must be shut down immediately and the new financial system must be implemented or else the United States would be totally cut off from the world. The military is also close to open revolt with more than half of the military supporting a total clean up of Washington D.C., according to a CIA source. The Washington establishment therefore faces a choice between stepping aside and facing a truth commission or else arrest, civil war,chaos and eventual death for all members of the ruling cabal. We believe that sane minds will prevail in such a situation and that a peaceful resolution is imminent. However, it is not over until it is over.
Last week the Chinese were on the verge of helping the US government kill the supporters of the new financial system in Washington until the Japanese government intervened to provide protection. There were then discussions with the Chinese where they were given an explanation of the inner workings of the international financial system. They were also made an offer.
What was told to them was that over 90% of the dollars ever created were not owned by Americans. The people who own those dollars do not want them to become worthless paper when the Federal Reserve Board implodes. Instead, all dollars earned through honest work (i.e. not through derivates and other types of fraud) would be backed by gold. These gold backed dollars would then be renamed. The Chinese want to call it the Renminbi. The Rothschilds want to call it the Hong Kong dollar. Our proposal is to call it the Hong Kong yen (pronounced yuan in Chinese). Many details will have to be worked out by experts. However, it is certain that never again will it be possible for private individuals to manipulate the world through the creation of money. The Chinese insist the creation of new money should be a job run by the government and this was agreed to by the concerned parties.
A high powered Japanese government delegation will be going to the Philippines towards the end of the year to deliver Chinese gold taken there in the 1930’s to China to be used for the purposes of backing up their dollar holdings. The Japanese delegation, led by the Japanese government& rsquo;s number two man, Hajime Ishii will also be given presentations about suppressed technology.
I will also be going there to give them some ideas about a new structure of global governance.
The Chinese want to move the UN headquarters to Laos because it is the site of some of the most ancient and pristine Asian culture. This seems like a nice idea. Of course the UN is now an extremely dysfunctional organization and will have to be totally revamped. It now serves as a global control mechanism for the victors of World War 2. This will be fundamentally changed.
In addition, the functions of the World Bank will be moved to China, probably to Hong Kong. All current World Bank employees will have their
track records examined and only those who have contributed positively to the planet will be re-employed.
The IMF will be disbanded because it has only caused misery and poverty throughout the world. It has functioned mainly to steal resources and property from the people of the world. In its place the Japanese will set up a new institution that will function to ensure the safety and stability of the global financial system. Hopefully it will be headquartered in Osaka.
All of these institutions will be set up as meritocracies. Anybody will be allowed to take the exam to join them. In addition, there will no longer be places at the top reserved for people of specific ethnic backgrounds.
The new organizations will all be very busy because the entire commercial structure of the planet will be changed. The industries that are expected to vanish or shrink dramatically include: petroleum, war, nuclear power and pharmaceuticals and automobiles. Companies in these industries will need substantial help to transform themselves. The petroleum industry, for example, could be changed into a geo-engineering industry. The armaments folk will move into space exploration. The automobile industry will start to manufacture anti-gravity scooters. The transformation of all the obsolete industries needs to be carried out in a manner that causes as little social disruption and dislocation as possible.
In addition all countries will have to agree to submit to the international court of Justice. Disputes between countries should be settled through negotiations or else in court.
However, it might be possible for countries to also agree to settle disputes through ritual warfare. They could, for example, each send 10 of their best martial artists to a desert island to duel it out but no killing will be allowed. The winning country will then get a more advantageous settlement of whatever the dispute was.
In any case, humanity is about to be freed from the grips of a horrific cult that has killed hundreds of millions of people over the years. Most of the 800 US military bases world-wide may well be shut down. The US military will have to be transformed into an entirely different organization dedicated to planetary defense and big projects for humanity.
We are headed for an unprecedented historical transformation. Hang on to your hats.

Countdown to 2012 ~ Happy New Year

Can you believe it???   2012 is just around the corner.  What makes this year different from other years?

The end of one year brings reflection, release, forgiveness, and the awareness of things that need to change for our personal and collective happiness.   The NEW YEAR starts with renewed promise, hope, a sense of new beginnings.

So what is different?  What do you see or feel that is different this year from other years.  Post it here and lets start an ongoing “list” this week of our personal experiences.

Diane’s response:  What I am seeing is the awareness of compassion and kindness is a mainstream consciousness.  People are “feeling” there is more to life than working, working, working especially in jobs they dislike,  jobs that are unfulfilling, inadequate financially,  and just all around not a good fit.  I am seeing people start to search out experiences that FEEL good, jobs that FEEL good, and most of all PEOPLE that FEEL good to be around.  Yes I do feel our soul families are reuniting.

Bryan’s response:  People are willing to do more to change the things in their lives rather than waiting for others to do it.  People are taking more personal responsibility.

Wishing All Blessing of love and light for 2012

Holidays ~ Love ~ Light ~ Family ~ Friends

We send our love and wishes to you all.  Below is a quick account of our adventure so far.

Left Truth or Consequences on Saturday Dec 17th.  It was hard to leave the Hot Springs village and the comfortable place we had found.  We arrived in Phoenix to hook up with a dear friend Frank Wili and then another dear friend Cheri Anderson.  They both had plans the first night we were in town so we stayed in a parking behind the buildings.  It was quiet enough and in the morning we were greeted with a couple men driving by.  They asked about our situation and then gave us the “famous Watch Tower” flier.  We finally hooked up with Frank and his wife Joy.  They took us to lunch and showed us around their living area in Scottsdale.  Very nice community with pool, fitness center, club house.

We then headed on to WEST Phoenix area and the Sun City West to hook up with Cheri.  Cheri is here staying with her delightful Mother, Tobi.  Cheri is from Portland and is one of the founders of the  “BE THE GIFT TEAM”.

We had a difficult time finding a place to put the trailer at first.  Frank and his wife were sure that there were not any places in this area and we would have to go to Mesa.  So we have been in the Sun City West area for a few days now.  We can park in front of Tobi’s house but we are not suppose to sleep in the trailer.  Of course we have been.  There aren’t may people around now, most are visiting family for the holidays.  It has been so quiet that it has been difficult to sleep.  We have gotten so used to truck and car traffic being on the road.

THE CAT:   We stayed one night at the back of a Quality Inn.  Very nice, Lowe’s next door.  Mariah was a terror that night and so we let her out.  The next morning she was no where to be found.  We had to go, as we couldn’t stay in the Inn’s parking lot all day.  We went back, made fliers and talked with the Inn and Animal Shelters.  She had not been turned in.  Two days later we took the RV and around 8pm we went back to the same place we had lost her.  WE were there less than 20 mins when she came to the door meowing to come in.  So now she is back.

The night before we went back to get her, I heard her crying all night and Bryan felt her walk across the bed.  We both agreed she was alive and ready to be home with us.  That is what inspired us to return with the trailer.

It is Christmas Eve and we are headed to San Bernardino, Bryan’s family will be there at his oldest sister’s home.  Then on Monday we will head up the coast to LA (Compton) where we will stay at his Mother’s home this week.  On Sunday or Monday we will head back to Sun City West and stay at a park here.  We are giving ourselves a week to check out the area.  Byran has already washed a few windows, but most people are focused on the holidays, so we are taking a week off too.

Bryan, Cheri, myself and Zoiya took a 2.5 hour hike up a mountain to celebrate Winter Solstice.   The trail was 1.75 miles and we climbed 350 ft.  Nice pump and the day was spectacular.  We were all grateful to be out in nature.  No trees here, lots of rocks, sand, and cactus.

I have been having issues with my WiFi and can’t always get on.  My phone isn’t holding a charge and has to be plugged in several times a day.  So I was a little disappointed not to get the video and pictures up.   I hope to get it resolved the week in CA.

We are sending love and light and peaceful hugs to you all.  Thanks for the calls and emails.  You are all the best and we miss and love you all.

On the Wings of Love      Diane, Bryan, Zoiya and Mariah
