Something Very Interesting to Watch

While teaching Intuition classes last week the subject of the future came up and I was reminded of a lecture I watched last year about Paul Amadeus Dienach. Dienach lived in the early 1900s and experienced a 365-day spell of narcolepsy during which he went into the future to the year 3906. While there, he was schooled about the history of where civilization had been and what had happened between the early 1900s and the 3900s. It is an amazing story with some VERY interesting information! The lecture is called Memories From the Future: The Valley of the Roses and is 2 hours long. It was a lecture given at the A.R.E. in Virginia around 2013. There’s a book titled Chronicles From the Future available on Amazon that contains the entire story. If you haven’t already seen it, you might enjoy watching it on a Sunday afternoon orevening. Here is the link:

Virtual Light Broadcast – May 2017

I have just returned home from a trip to Las Vegas where I had the great pleasure of being a guest of Steve and Barbara Rother and their Virtual Light Broadcast. You can check it out in the link below.

As usual, I drove, and it was – as always – very enlightening to go across the land, talk with people, and see what is happening in other corners of our country! Of course, old-time wisdom says that travel is not advised during Mercury Retrograde. I have to say there might be something to that old advice because I ran into numerous challenges. I discovered I had poison ivy my first night on the road. I ended up scrambling around in Rolla, MO. trying to find a soap scrub that would eliminate the ivy oils. I got to New Mexico where it was freezing and they were having a snowstorm…only to discover I had forgotten my coat. By the time I reached Gallup NM, the poison ivy was spreading wildly and I ended up online at http://www.DoctorOnDemand.com in the middle of the night to get a prescription that would reduce my misery, only to discover all of their pharmacies close at 10PM. I reached Las Vegas, which was HUGE compared to the last time I was there, and my interview and broadcast went well, but I had to scurry to a laundromat as soon as it was over to wash clothes in an effort to remove any poison ivy oils.

From there I went on to Santa Barbara CA where I stayed with a friend and had several important and interesting meetings. I also discovered that everyone in California is talking about leaving the U.S. and breaking away to form their own country! It made me sad to realize that from their point of view, they are finished with Washington DC and our union.

When it was time to come home, I had to contend with flooding and water everywhere. At my daughter’s home in Columbia, MO, the ground was so saturated that water was seeping up through cracks in the sidewalk and pavement! I was afraid I might have to stay west of the Mississippi for a few weeks, but by going north a little bit, I was able to cross! By the time I arrived home, I felt like I had been gone for months, not weeks. I slept for 11 1/2 hours. It was a good trip, Mercury Retrograde notwithstanding!

 

Act One – Worries about the Donald

I was in bed and almost asleep at 10:26 last night when my iPad began going off.

A student wrote:

“OMG heaven help us!! This election is nailbiting!! WHAT did the Robes see in Trump over a woman (Clinton)?”

I wrote back:

“LOL, it isn’t about Trump vs. Clinton. It is about consciousness. It is about learning to see past illusions (Hillary represents a huge illusion) and choosing something above the consciousness of murder, rape of children, fraud, and betrayal that she represents. Trump is like the clown in the Memorial Day parade that distract your attention from the wounded and surviving veterans who march along in lockstep. We are the marchers in this parade, quite wounded, and needing to refuse the distractions that pull at us. We are at a serious point in our civilization’s evolution. If we choose the corruption of the past, we will collapse and disintegrate. Even if we choose the higher consciousness, there will be civil war to finish breaking down the old systems. Sometimes the only thing we will have to sustain us will be the knowledge that we made the right choice. If Trump is elected, he will have served his purpose and will likely not be with us very long. So quit biting those fingernails and watch what is unfolding. In itself, the whole election circus is a distraction from the drama of a huge gold theft going on across the sea. The Cabal has falsified ownership papers of 1 million tons of gold and is preparing to make off with it in order to stay in power. That is where the real tragedy is!

She then replied:

“.?! sigh..breath..breath…Gold is already rising like crazy… and what about Russia pushing into Estonia while we are preoccupied…

I replied:

“LOL YES… Breathe deeply…there is some really awful stuff taking place while we are occupied elsewhere. I heard that the U.S. blew up the power grid in Murmansk today putting 300,000 Russian people in the dark and cold. That’s up near the Arctic circle, so really inconvenient for those people. I am not surprised about the gold price. I expect silver will climb as well…and later on other things will fall, like our dollar.”

Electing Donald Trump is only the first act of evolving our civilization. I am going to look up an old story that teaches a lesson and brings insight into our situation. Back soon.

 

 

Interview on Sacred Space Radio

I recently did a 2-hour interview with George Rideout of Sacred Space Radio in Winnepeg, Canada. We talked about all sorts of things from kundalini and spiritual development to dreams, near death, reincarnation, and a whole bunch of other topics associated with spiritual development.  Here is the link if you’d like to listen and enjoy:

9 Guidelines to Use When Navigating the Alternative News

This started out as a reply to Tom Van Berckel, but became an entire blog. Thanks for the inspiration, Tom! And thanks for the compliment.

You aren’t the only one who gets confused when trying to figure out what to believe or who to listen to when wading through the ocean of alternative news. In my experience, and from conversations with many others, it takes at least a couple of years to learn to navigate that ocean and develop the capacity to put together a realistic picture of what’s going on out there. Along the way you discover several things that really have more to do with consciousness than anything else.

#1 – everyone has their own point of view and whether we think their views are right or wrong is somewhat irrelevant. Their point of view tells us where they are at with their perception, NOT where we should be at with ours! We each NEED our own point of view because that is the center point from which we communicate, learn, change, and grow.

#2 – we live in a consensus reality system – but that consensus is VERY loose. In my view, it is amazing that it holds together at all given the huge diversity of beliefs, experience, and perception that exist here. It is only because of our tolerance (unspoken) for one another, and our gratitude (unacknowledged) for their willingness (unconscious) to help hold it all together, that we are able to continue with the reality.

#3 – the idea of “proof” is useless. Even the best of scientists rarely think in terms of “proof.” They say, “This is what most of us agree on at the moment,” and they know that new insights and information will eventually go beyond the current agreement. My own stand is that there is no proof, there is only what we each experience, and each of us is responsible for assessing that experience from moment to moment and responding to it wisely and well. For most of us who are trying to wade through the huge amounts of alternative news, a good rule of thumb for judging any news is that the reporter should at least have some evidence to show, and when they have finished offering evidence, they should make it clear when they are switching to their own interpretation of that evidence.

#4 – you will resonate deeply in your gut, your heart, and your mind when you see or read news that is true and important for YOU to know. Not all news is relevant to all people.

#5 – listen to what people say, but watch carefully what they do. Keep a notebook handy in which you jot down lists, or create a folder on your computer in which you save speeches of key promises and predictions that people make. Then pay attention to whether they do what they said they would do, or how they behave when the prediction doesn’t come true. A few people will complain that this is too much work, but this is the burden of being a real citizen. We are where we are in this country because the hens have been selling eggs AND fresh chicken to the fox – and no one is paying attention!

#6 – find news sources that do a fairly good job of synthesizing lots of information and presenting a well-thought-out view of the big picture, or that consistently present smaller slices of information in a clear and honest way. The task here is to eventually find news sources you trust and that you can return to again and again because their information is always presented in a straightforward,  thoughtful way that makes you think.

#7 – learn to discern the difference between sources that sometimes get excited or upset about something, those who are continually outraged and spouting off about it, or those that are always trying to incite fear and dread. It’s like the difference between fresh milk (news), sour milk (news with an attitude), and fermented milk (news with a hidden agenda). In each case it’s milk, but you will respond differently to each.

#8 – you have a right to be interested in some things and not others. Follow the threads of conversation and information that you find interesting, and let yourself become knowledgeable and aware in the areas that you are interested in. Some people love politics, others love to read about the economy, some are only interested in technology, or science, or war, or psychology. Some follow music closely, or entertainment, or sports. So follow your nose, consuming information and arguments about the things that interest you, and occasionally graze in other pastures that offer other topics.

#9 – as for “truth,” there is only one unchanging and reliable truth – and that is that everything in existence is made of an intelligent Light that we call God, or Source, or The Universe, or whatever. All the stuff that emerges from that Light is temporary, which is why we say it is an illusion. It’s really not an illusion, it’s just temporary in the sense that it is not eternal and forever unchanging like that Light is. But you can damn well count on having a sore foot if you drop a brick on it. You can’t just blow that off as “illusion.” The truth is that it hurts!

In closing…we are in the middle of a paradigm shift of global proportions. A paradigm shift is a change in consciousness. If you are going to make that shift along with everyone else, you have to take responsibility for what you feed that consciousness and what you do with that consciousness. We are moving out of the paradigm of one-size-fits-all-and-one-story-informs-all. How you assemble the world is up to you!

Using Conspiracy Theory to Advantage

There are two ways to view events in our world. One is that things just happen naturally, the other is that there is a hidden hand manipulating things to their advantage. The first is called the accidental theory of events, the second is called the conspiracy theory of historical events. Mainstream media has managed to give a bad name to those who think there is a hidden hand manipulating events in our world today. From my point of view, the majority of those deeply poo-pooed “conspiracy theories” turn out to be true. So I have been wondering if we might take the whole idea of conspiracy theory and make it our own, conspire to construct the future we want, and then, if the powers that be get upset or try to blame us for anything, we can accuse them of believing in those silly conspiracy theories!

We Are Not All One

We are not all one! We are all different in weirdly wonderful and unique ways. Think of it like this. The world is a giant barrel of flour. The flour is used to make bread dough. Some of the dough is made into loaves to become toast or sandwiches, some into cinnamon rolls or dumplings, and some into bagels, pizza, or croutons. Additional ingredients can be added or left out to make pita pockets, a simple form of paste, maybe gravy, cookies, or pie crust. There is flour in all of these, but each is different and has different reasons for being. It is the same with us. Are we all one? No, not in a practical sense. Do we all have a common ingredient? Yes. We are all made of light. Is there only one kind of light? Nope. There are many frequencies, each a unique color and sound. How much does the average human know about light? Not much. Why are we made of light? Who knows! However, light has the capacity to perceive, to hear, to communicate, to move about, and to organize or re-organize itself. Using modern industrial language, we could truthfully say humans are a product of the light. What do we usually say?  “I have been created by God.”
