The Light Series #12: The Winds of Cosmic Changes Are Blowing


Hello everyone

Everytime coining a catchy title that somehow encompasses the gist of what a compilation is all about is for me an absolutely intuition-driven - and somewhat dicey - thing.

I think I got it right for this one...

"During these times of fast paced changes, many will be coming forward yelling "follow me...follow me" as if they have some magical special information which we must adhere to be saved. Let me remind us all, now more than ever we must maintain our internal insight and intuition. As events heat up, the natural reaction is to find the answers. Worse yet, many will be vulnerable to seek spiritual guidance sensing something truly is about to happen. This is were it gets dangerous. Why? because something is about to happen and has been for sometime. What could be more confusing than half truths and double messages? So once again I bring this message to you. Follow your truth, not mine or anyone else. Seek and you shall find. Find what? Your Truth!"

Subject: Re: The Big Brother Files #26: The Ultimate Orwellian Nightmare! --- Webposted at http://www.cybernaute.com/earthconcert2000/Archives2002/BigBrother26.htm

Jean,

Thanks for you work. You are doing a wonderful job of disseminating information that would otherwise be unavailable to most of us.

With reference to the above email regarding the microchip possibilities, has anyone given thought to the possibility of implanting these tiny devices in teeth.

With the tendency in orthodontics and dentistry to get away from the use of metal in the mouth, these devices could be implanted, without the knowledge of the recipient. The materials used today would not interfer with the radio signals used by the devices.

Thus anyone who protested or refused to go along with the governments plans, would be covertly coerced into the program. If doctors and veterinarians are being enlisted by the instigators, why shouldn't dentists.

One point in the last item in your letter - "The chips that will be marketed next year are not true tracking devices. The next generation of body chips -- one that transmits signals from a distance is still several years away."

This doesn't make much sense.

Question: If they are not tracking devices, why have them? And if they are, they do not need to be very strong, as the signal could be picked up by a receiver locally and then amplified and sent to a satellite for transmission to the main computer complex/network.

As that line from the TV program goes: "Gentlemen, we have the technology."

Thanks again

John

AND MY REPLY WAS

Thanks John for your supportive feedback and additional suggestion regarding the implanting of these devices in teeth. I personally do not think they would go such a route because if they wanted to do this covertly, involving all dentists would seem like the best way to make it known to everyone because there is no way to get all dentists - and all doctors for that matters - cooperate in such a covert scheme without the word getting out which would make so many people angry that it would totally backfire on the instigators. And then if we were to believe your line of thinking, we could no longer trust anyone and so be under the grip of constant paranoia. I personally choose to believe in the benevolence of the overwhelming majority of people and generally trust the other members of the society where I live. Which is not to say that I trust the corporate and governmental institutions that are under the stealth control of an elite agenda that benefits only a tiny minority. We now have genetically modified ingredients in over 60% of the foodstuff sold in store, toxic chemicals everywhere thanks to big chemical corporations and the dumb participation of millions of farmers, plant workers and individuals who blindly believe those in authority, and we live in a world where the ever shrinking Web of Life is literally eaten away because of the folly of continuous economic expansion, an almost religious tenet held by the majority under the current materialistic paradigm. Which is why I've chosen 20 years ago to grow my own food and buy as much organic food as possible, to live in a relatively pristine remote environment in the house I built with my own hands and to contribute as little as possible to the all consuming, greed-driven but so superficial prevailing - but not for long! - capitalistic society around us.

Regarding the notion that "The next generation of body chips -- one that transmits signals from a distance is still several years away." I agree with you that this is probably just a reassuring piece of disinformation. With the fast-paced technological breakthroughs and the enormous amount of undisclosed technologies held in secret covertment labs around the world, I'm sure the only thing that has prevented them to implement the grim scenario described in this compilation is the time it takes to gradually engineer the social environment that will make the acceptation of implanted chips an incontrovertible fact of life, just as credit and debit cards, price/product scanners at the shopping mall and all the rest we - in the rich, developed world - take for granted today. Once the rational for accepting those devices - in the eyes of the disinformed, mind-controlled majority - becomes overwhelming, then they will roll out the technology they have.

The only problem for "them" is that the exponentially expanding spiritual awakening, spreading like wildfire through the Innernet connecting us all at the soul level, is now unstoppable and they have *potentially* lost the race to conquer and control the hearts and minds of wo-mankind. Yet all those who like us have made some headways into this new realm of spiritual awakening have the indeniable responsibility to show the way ahead to all our soul kins, first by our very beingness, shining radiantly, selflessly and lovingly, by our actions in all spheres of life, by our balanced and compassion-driven words and, most importantly, by the very thought-forms and love-vibes we choose to uphold in our minds and hearts. Unless the "Awakeners" impeccably accomplish their self-chosen mission in *this* lifetime - and I submit there should be no place for any doubt in our minds as to whether this will be accomplished - and according to the most sacred vows we all took before the Radiant One, then this Promised Land, this heavenly paradise on this earthly adobe in the infinite expanses of time and space, could still remain an unfulfilled promise. We've got to perform and support each other in this sacred awakening task so that the entire family of Life on Earth becomes All that it can be.

With love and Light as One

Jean

ACCORDING TO ART ROSENBLUM WHO CHECKED THIS OUT WITH HIS FRIEND IGOR IN RUSSIA THE SCIENTIST WHO WROTE THIS BELOW "is well-known and respected among Russian scientists". SO THIS IS "RELIABLE".

Sent by "David Workman" <david.workman@virgin.net>

Subject: Russian Scientist says planets' atmospheres are changing

This is the Russian perspective on earth changes. Hard facts that are going unreported in America. The atmospheres of the planets are changing.

Dr. Dmitriev's work shows that the planets themselves are changing. They are undergoing changes in their atmospheres.

For example the Martian atmosphere is getting sizably thicker than it was before. The Mars observer probe in 1997 lost one of its mirrors, which caused it to crash, because the atmosphere was about twice as dense as they calculated, and basically the wind on that little mirror was so high that it blew it right off the device.

Earth's moon is growing an atmosphere. Also, the moon is growing an atmosphere that's made up of a compound Dmitriev refers to as ''Natrium.'' Dmitriev says that, around the moon, there is this 6,000-kilometer-deep layer of Natrium that wasn't there before.

And we're having this kind of change in Earth's atmosphere in the upper levels, where HO gas is forming that wasn't there before; it simply did not exist in the quantity that it does now. It's not related to global warming and it's not related to CFCs or fluorocarbon emissions or any of that stuff. It's just showing up.

Magnetic fields and brightness of the planets are changing. The planets are experiencing sizable changes in their overall brightness. Venus, for example, is showing us marked increases in its overall brightness. Jupiter has gotten to have such a high energetic charge that there is actually a visible tube of ionizing radiation that's formed between its moon, Io. You can actually see the luminous energy tube in photographs that have been taken more recently.

And the planets are having a change in their fields. The magnetic fields are becoming stronger. Jupiter's magnetic field has more than doubled. Uranus's magnetic field is changing. Neptune's magnetic field is increasing. These planets are becoming brighter. Their magnetic field strength is getting higher. Their atmospheric qualities are changing.

Uranus and Neptune appear to have had recent pole shifts. When the Voyager 2 space probe flew past Uranus and Neptune, the apparent north and south magnetic poles were sizably offset from where the rotational pole was. In one case, it was 50 degrees off, and in the other case the difference was around 40 degrees, both of which are pretty big changes.

The overall changes could essentially be broken down into three categories: Energy field changes, luminosity changes, and atmospheric changes.

Overall volcanic activity has increased 500 percent since 1875

On the Earth, we're seeing the changes even more completely. For example, Michael Mandeville has done research that has shown that the overall volcanic activity on the Earth since 1875 has increased by roughly 500 percent. The overall earthquake activity has increased by 400 percent just since 1973.

Natural disasters increased 410 percent between 1963 and 1993

Dr. Dmitriev did a very elaborate calculation of natural disasters. He showed that if you compare the years 1963 through 1993, the overall amount of natural disasters of all different kinds - whether you are talking hurricanes, typhoons, mud slides, tidal waves, you name it - have increased by 410 percent.

The Sun's magnetic field increased by 230 percent since 1901

There's a study by Dr. Mike Lockwood from Rutherford Appleton National Laboratories in California, who has been investigating the Sun. He has discovered that since 1901, the overall magnetic field of the Sun has become 230 percent stronger than it was before.

More than just Earth Changes

So, all in all, what we're seeing is a lot more than just what they call Earth Changes. Some people get into the idea that there is an interaction between the Earth and the Sun that's going on here. Very, very few people are aware of the work that is being done in the Russian National Academy of Sciences in Siberia, specifically in Novosibirsk, where they are doing this research. They've come to the conclusion that the only possible thing that could be causing this energetic change all throughout the Solar System is that we are moving into an area of energy that is different - that is higher.

The glowing plasma at the leading edge of our Solar System has recently increased 1000 percent

Now, check this out. The Sun itself has a magnetic field, of course, and that magnetic field creates an egg around the Solar System, which is known as the heliosphere. The heliosphere is shaped like a teardrop, with the long and thin end of the drop pointing in the opposite direction from the direction that we're traveling. It's just like a comet, where the tail is always pointing away from the Sun.

The Russians have looked at the leading edge of this heliosphere, and they have observed glowing, excited plasma energy there. This plasma energy used to be 10 astronomical units deep (an astronomical unit is the distance from the Earth to the Sun, 93,000,000 miles). So ten astronomical units represents the normal thickness of this glowing energy that we used to see at the front end of the Solar System.

Today, that glowing plasma has gone to 100 astronomical units deep. Although Dmitriev's paper does not give an exact timeline, we can assume that this increase happened in the same 1963 to 1993 period as the increase he found in natural disasters. Whenever it happened, that's a 1,000 percent increase in the overall brightness of the energy at the front end of the Solar System.

And this means that the Solar System itself is moving into an area where the energy is more highly charged. That higher-charged energy is in turn exciting the plasma and causing more of it to form, so you see more luminosity, more brightness. This energy is then flowing into the Sun, which in turn emits the energy and spreads it out along its equatorial plane, which is called the Ecliptic. This in turn is saturating interplanetary space, which causes the solar emissions to travel more quickly and charge up the energy on the planets.

And this is conscious energy that is changing how the planet works, how it functions, and what kind of life it supports. The harmonics of the DNA spiral itself are altering. That's the real, hidden cause of spontaneous mass evolutions in previous epochs of time.

All this is happening all at the same time, and it's all working up to a crescendo where there is going to be a sudden shift.

In other words, we will get to the point where we are so far into the new level of energy that there will be a sudden expansion of the basic harmonic wavelengths that the Sun emits as it radiates energy out of itself. This increase in energy emission will change the basic nature of all matter in the Solar System. The planets are pushed slightly farther away from the Sun and the atoms and molecules that make them up actually expand in terms of their physical size.

I'M SHARING WITH YOU THESE COUPLE EXCERPTS FROM THE REPORT SENT BY MY GOOD FRIEND ANTARES IN MALAYSIA ON THE "MAGICKfestation 2002" HE ORGANIZED AT HIS PLACE. I SUGGEST YOU VISIT HIS WEBSITE AT http://www.xlibris.de/magickriver TO HAVE A BETTER FEELING OF WHERE HE LIVES WHAT KIND OF GUY HE IS. FROM HIS ACCOUNT YOU WILL HAVE AN IDEA OF THE KIND OF WONDROUS EARTH CHANGES NOW IN PROGRESS...

Subject: MAGICKfest 2002!

Phew!!! WOW!!! Whooooooosh!!!

The 9-Day Magickfest turned into an 11-Day Elohim Portal Activation, Celebration, Releasing Session, Sacred Ceremony, Love-In, Jam Session and for me the Most Fantastic Farty I recall (yes, it was a gas-gas-gas from the word GO!) since Star-Borne Reunion # 8 in March 1993. Indeed it was a Monumentally Metatronic Marathon of Music and Mad Joy!

JOY, FREEDOM, and the happy fusion of WORK and PLAY were the keynotes - and something profoundly significant was accomplished that was totally unforeseen and reality shifting beyond our wildest expectations.

CLIP

Before retiring to our beds, all of us went down to the river to savour the crisp early morning air and we suddenly noticed that there was a powerful vortex manifesting on the hill overlooking the bungalow. As our attention focused on a particular point between two peaks we noticed an etheric tetrahedral pyramid forming in the night sky, subtly demarcated by tiny stars. We agreed it was the apex of an immense etheric crystal wand receiving, storing, and transmitting light codes to the Mother Ship, which manifested as a huge circular tube of glowing mist. Heiko had an inner vision of an enormous floating world containing an amazing diversity of galactic human cultures and star nations. I received the message that the "actual" Mother Ship was an etheric pod many times larger than our planet containing the seeds of myriad worlds.

CLIP

I suggested we walk down the steps to the river to check on the vortex. It was still visible, indeed, it had grown since the previous night! I was prompted by Spirit to show Heiko and Selina the tetrahedral cleft in a nearby rock which had fascinated me since I first spotted it in 1992. I had suspected it was the seal of the Elohim and I had telepathically received the formula, "Elohim Alayu" which I used as a Magick River credo without fully knowing what it meant. Heiko, Selina and I had been discussing J.J. Hurtak's Keys of Enoch and we had discovered archetypal resonances linking us through the Melchizedek-Metatron-Michael trinity as well as through our mythogenetic resonances with the Enki-Enlil-Ninhursag saga. As we examined the seal by flashlight, everything suddenly clicked: Enoch was the Keeper of the Keys! Perhaps the Enochian frequency was required to open the Elohim Timelock. There was no need to articulate my thought: Heiko was down on his knees moving his hand within the cleft while intoning a formula in the archangelic tongue of the Elohim. I was prompted to chant the few Elohim phrases that came to mind: Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh and Elohim Alayu... all four of us (Heiko, Selina, Johnny and I stood back as what appeared to be a beam of white light shot up from the cleft. I actually felt a forcefield as the beam went up. I looked around at the group and remarked that this was just like a scene out of a Tintin adventure (and true enough, we even had "Captain Haddock" aka Denis Hewitt join us a few hours later!)

NOTE FROM JEAN: The following is the integral version of an interview of Tom Kenyon by Diane and on 9-11 made soon after this event.

Our Task as Spiritual Warriors: Responding Coherently to the Coming Times

with Tom Kenyon

Vol 2 Oct 2001

Our Task as Spiritual Warriors
Responding Coherently to the Coming Times

an interview with Tom Kenyon by Diane M. Cooper

Diane: What were you doing when you first heard of the attack on the WTC and what were your first thoughts?

Tom: I was in the second day of a Sound Healer's training near Seattle, Washington. When I heard the news it was, of course, very disturbing, and it immediately reminded me of something that happened in Zurich recently.

I was approached in meditation at 3:00 in the morning by Padmasambhava,[1] and he said to me, ''The battle has begun.'' I then found myself engaged over Jerusalem, expending what we might call energies of Love and Balance to counteract what was going on there.

So when I heard the news, my mind went to this experience with Padmasambhava, and I said to myself, ''My God, I guess he was right.''

Diane: That's curious, as I have talked to many people who find themselves awakened for no reason at 4:00 a.m. and don't know what to make of it.

Tom: I think many of us will find ourselves in dreamtime or meditation doing work in emergency-type situations. I don't think the experience I just described is confined to just a few of us. I think many of us will find ourselves in dreamtime or meditation being called to places in distress and working energetically in dimensions of consciousness that we might or might not be aware of, even if we haven't done it before.

Diane: Are you afraid?

Tom: No. It's a strange kind of experience for me. I'm aware of the collective fear and it gets very strong at times. I do have moments of personal concern, but I'm surprised at the lack of fear. I think I feel something more akin to enthusiasm for doing what I'm asked to do at whatever levels I'm asked, whether it be physical, political or spiritual. I feel myself very much coming ''on line.'' I feel this is why we came here - to be a part of this unfolding mystery.

Diane: You said Padmasambhava used the word ''battle.'' What does this mean?

Tom: What he meant was the battle between Light and Dark - that which is life-affirming and that which is life-destructive. Those elements are not necessarily politically based - meaning, the ''good guys'' are not the western countries and the ''bad guys'' are not those in the Middle East. It's much more convoluted than that.

Padmasambhava had been training me prior to this incident in the understanding of the path of the spiritual warrior, which is symbolized by Manjushri holding the Sword of Discrimination.[2] The Sword of Discrimination is not a physical sword necessarily. It represents the ability to cut through illusion so you can see the right course of action in a difficult situation.

Fundamentally, the weapons used for this - continuing the Manjushri metaphor - are the weapons of non-war: compassion, appreciation, and gratitude. One practices staying in these places of consciousness as much as possible, because that is the path of the spiritual warrior, and those are the spiritual weapons used to counteract the weapons used on the physical plane. There is no ''fighting'' per se.

Diane: What were you doing when you first heard of the attack on the WTC and what were your first thoughts?

Tom: I was in the second day of a Sound Healer's training near Seattle, Washington. When I heard the news it was, of course, very disturbing, and it immediately reminded me of something that happened in Zurich recently.

One practices staying in these places of consciousness as much as possible, because that is the path of the spiritual warrior, and those are the spiritual weapons used to counteract the weapons used on the physical plane. There is no ''fighting'' per se.

Diane: I've been listening periodically to talk shows and alternative radio programs, and many people, if they aren't saying we have to go to war, are saying that at least we have to ''defend'' ourselves. The country seems to be divided between these two sentiments. So how can those of us who choose unequivocal peace keep from getting sucked into this predominant mentality? How do we stay in a mode that will decrease the potential of war?

Tom: There are two things. One is the individual task to remain in coherent or higher states of emotions.

When we were in the Sound Healer's training, I was talking about Manfred Clyne's work with Coherent Emotion[3] and the essentic waveforms of coherency. When we experience love, gratitude, and appreciation, it has an emanating effect on the environment and a balancing effect on the person experiencing it.

So in the midst of chaos, if those of us having this understanding can attain and hold the place of appreciation, it has an emanating affect which then, if there are enough people participating, will have some type of effect on the collective.

I think it's important for those who are spiritual in their approach to things to understand and undertake this form of discipline, and also to accept that it may be very difficult and challenging at times when the collective is embroiled in lower forms of emotion.

Then there is the political issue.

I have to truthfully say that I believe it is important for us to understand that we are being lied to by the media. When I was traveling overseas this past year, my eyes were opened to how differently America is perceived by people in other countries. The news broadcast there is very different from the news broadcast here. The news media here is owned by large corporations with many vested interests. We are being manipulated by these vested interests and there are many theories about where this interest finally ends up. Whatever the source is, we are given tremendous misinformation. Here's an example.

I was just sent an email from England enclosing an article by John Pilger[4], a British journalist who has received many awards for his accuracy in journalism. In his paper he wrote about the aftermath of the Gulf War, and that over a million civilians have died in Iraq, half of them children, as a result of the embargo imposed by the US and Britain. The American public, of course, never hears about that.

And ironically, in Pakistan and Afghanistan, the mujahidin, or holy warriors - the radical wing which gave birth to the Taliban, translated in Arabic to mean ''the students'' - was the creation of the CIA, because they were purposely, according to John Pilger, wanting to create destabilization in the area, but it backfired. Pilger also mentions that the terrorist camps that Osama bin Laden used were originally built with American money.

Another example. When I was in Greece, we had dinner with our landlord and his wife, who was very aware of international affairs. She had tears in her eyes when she said to me, ''I don't blame the American people. I know that the American people are good. But you are being lied to.'' And she went on to talk about Macedonia, north of Greece. They have newscasters that go into Macedonia and do live broadcasts, and it is a very different picture than what we get when we tune into CNN or other major stations.[5] She cried when she explained that NATO had placed so many landmines in Macedonia that children are being blown up and losing arms and legs.

So here we are in a country where a majority of the people are crying for war. I think our task is to have compassion for our own countrymen, because we are being lied to by the media and whatever controls the media. I don't think the American people would want to go to war if we understood what our government was really doing.

My point here concerns awareness. This is the time when we are going to have to come to our deepest intuition - our spiritual powers. This is the time we are going to have to really use them. We have to hone our discrimination abilities, sense when we are being lied to, and choose the right course of action for ourselves and our loved ones based on our inner guidance.

Diane: So it still comes down to personal responsibility, right?

Tom: Yes. And I feel, as my algebra teacher used to say before we went on to new material, ''It's gonna get worse before it gets better.'' Unfortunately.

One of the things that occurred after the attack is that the Hathors[6] came to me and said, ''The path of the Initiate is different than the collective.'' And I said, ''What do you mean by that?'' And they said, ''Everyone is part of the collective destiny, but an initiate [or someone on the spiritual path] has awareness and a responsibility that comes out of that awareness.'' We must understand that there is a spiritual discipline required in a moment like this, and that is, as much as possible, to remain in coherency.

If one person can hold coherency in the middle of distress, they will be able to think clearer and respond better and ultimately may have an emanating effect on the collective.

On the other hand, it will certainly have a positive effect on the person who is holding it. So we can individually make better choices for ourselves and be in the right place at the right time instead of the wrong place at the wrong time.

I heard from a friend in New York who was on his way to work at the WTC and decided to have a coffee and go in to work a half an hour late. When he got off the subway the second plane had just crashed into the tower and he saw all this havoc. He immediately turned around and got on the train. And as it turns out, it was the last train allowed out of the city going back to Connecticut where he lived.

Often, there is a narrow gate, where even in the midst of disaster you can find a place of safety and maneuver out of it. I think this is what the Hathors were talking about when they said that the path of the Initiate, the path of the spiritual person, is different than the collective. Right place, right time - and that requires coherency of emotion.

The Hopi also have a saying that in these end times, as things speed up, we need to slow down and do everything with more mindfulness - to become more aware, more appreciative, and be connected to our spiritual community, those that have like values.

Diane: I was thinking about prophecy the other day. Many predict scenarios, all of them ultimately ending in ''Light'' prevailing over the dark, with a very rocky road in between.

I kept thinking that if all of this was prophesied, and much is occurring exactly as was predicted, and we are ultimately going to choose the Light, why do we have to go through this? What is it developing in humanity? Is it useful? Personally, I think it's very stressful.

Tom: It is horribly stressful. You know, the prophecies, in my understanding, are probable futures as viewed by people in far distant times, and I don't think anything is guaranteed.

Diane: So are you saying that possibly the downside could win?

Tom: Yes.

Diane: And then what would happen to consciousness at that point?

Tom: Well, when consciousness is enslaved, then there is no evolution.

Diane: Well, no one ever talks about that part. Most spiritual teachers are ''upbeat'' about the future. They don't talk about the reality of the situation, and if this is a true possibility, then we need to discuss it.

Tom: Well, the Hathors, about three years ago, before all of this happened, started talking about how the outcome was not guaranteed and that we were co-creators with the Purpose of Life. As more people make the choice toward Life, we will have movement. But if people don't make that choice, then we will move into enslavement and domination. They also said the purpose of consciousness is for evolution, and if evolution was no longer possible, then there would be no reason for life.

Diane: Life anywhere? Or life here?

Tom: Life here. And they said, that what happens here has tremendous effect on what happens elsewhere, and that is why there is so much focus on the Earth at this time.

They also told me - and I've also had other friends who are tuned into this type of thing - that the word had gone out, and Masters have been called from all dimensions as a counterbalance to the ''darkness,'' or that which would constrict life. Masters are coming in from many different dimensions, much more rapidly than they would care to.

I don't want to frighten anyone, but what the Hathors told me is that the next ten years are crucial. As we move to 2012, the future is not certain. Some prophecies say that the darkness will be overcome and we will have 1000 years of peace and a high golden period of history. What the Hathors say is that these are probable futures that people have tuned into because of their frequency. Collectively, we have choice. But collectively it is not guaranteed what the outcome will be. That's why they have told me over and over again, the task for those who are spiritually oriented is to remain in coherency, and live in appreciation and awareness as much as possible during this next ten years.

So, again, it all comes back to personal responsibility - to understand that the path of the Initiate is different from the path of the collective. We are making choices in our emotional life that are different from those around us, and we must understand that.

Diane: It doesn't seem fair that there are so many of us choosing peace in our personal life and yet the government is channeling us down a specific road which looks like war and strife.

Tom: I think we have to put this in another context. Again, if we are taking the spiritual perspective, this is one event: the terrorist attack, a catastrophic moment in time, a blink of an eyelid in the flow of time.

When you and I went to the archeological dig in the desert in Egypt this past January, we saw a mummified foot sticking out of the sand - that was such a poignant symbol. Here was a person who had a life, passion, anxieties, hopes, and dreams - and now they are just little bones sticking out of the sand, being observed by someone from another time with totally different values and concerns and frameworks. Those of us going through this now will, in 2000-5000 years, be viewed from a totally different perspective.

What the Hathors told me is not to look at this moment within the framework of our individual lives but from the framework of the Celestial Soul.

This is one of many experiences that the Soul is going through and has gone through for a very long time. The choices we make in this moment in our lives will determine what we as a Soul do in other experiences. But the perspective of the Soul is hundreds and thousands of years. So from the perspective of the Celestial Soul, looking back at this, it is a poignant moment and a choice moment in our evolution. For those of us who can make the choice to remain in appreciation and awareness through these moments, we are strengthening our Soul.

This becomes a type of strength that is eternal and is not affected a hundred years from now, when all this is over. What we have gleaned from the choices we make personally will be what matters from the perspective of the Celestial Soul. So the Hathors said to keep that framework in mind as we go through and deal with these things at a personal level. We also are experiencing this at the Soul level, and the choice to remain in coherency and awareness is a choice to align with the Soul.

Diane: Would you give me an exercise that people can do to help stay in appreciation and coherency.

Tom: Well, several things. One is to count the small blessings. As an example, we just finished a two week teaching marathon. I had two large trainings, back to back, and then a few days of rushing around doing interviews, and so I woke up this morning kind of grumpy. . . and it was raining, and I was saying to myself, ''Ohhhhh nooooo, it's raining.'' But then I went immediately into, ''Isn't it great, you have a roof over your head.'' Because there are people who don't have shelter right now, and there will be more who don't have shelter, unfortunately, or food, or the basics.

I think as we go into more chaotic periods - and I think we are going to, the economy, everything, all aspects of life are going to be affected - if we can be thankful for the small things that we may have disregarded a year ago. In the future, if you go into the kitchen to cook, and you find half an onion that hasn't rotted, you can be in appreciation and say ''Oh, isn't it wonderful that we have part of an onion that we can still eat.'' We can go into appreciation anytime. We don't have to have a reason for it. Our culture has the understanding that appreciation comes out of something that has occurred outside ourselves, such as getting that new car we've always wanted, or getting into a new relationship. But we can go into the feeling of appreciation without having a reason for it. That is very powerful to do. It has powerful effects on the immune system and the heart and brain function.

All a person has to do to accomplish this is to recall the feeling of appreciation from their past. They might have to go to the memory of it in order to retrieve it, but once they have the emotion, then they can let the memory drop away and be left with the feeling. With practice we can begin to live in that feeling by choice. We will then begin to experience that staying in a higher state of coherency will enable us to make better choices because our thinking will be clearer and our health will be better.

At the metaphysical level, when we go into appreciation and a higher level of coherency, we are closer to the Soul and we are closer to that place of alignment as spiritual warriors. When the world raises its arms, we raise appreciation, compassion, and awareness. Those are the responses of the spiritual warrior.

Diane: Would you explain how science looks at the state of appreciation, and why that is so important.

Tom: I'd refer the readers to the HeartMath institute.[7] Through EEG's that measure brain waves and EKG's that measure heart rhythms, it has been shown scientifically that when we go into frustration, for instance, our heart rhythms spike. Of course frustration is very agitating as a subjective experience, but the heart also gets agitated, which shows up on the EKG as little jagged lines. Also, its been shown that parts of the immune system get suppressed for up to 24 hours after experiencing frustration for only 20 minutes. This is measured through the testing of immunoglobulin in the saliva.

On the contrary, when a person goes into appreciation, you can see the heart rhythm getting very smooth. There are changes in the brain, and also changes that take place in the cells and the level of stress hormones. The stress hormones decrease in the presence of appreciation and increase in the presence of frustration. So I think understanding this neurophysiologically is very important.

Let's say that you go to the airport and because of enhanced security it might be a very potentially frustrating experience - perhaps a three- or four-hour wait in line. The environment is giving you cues that it is going to take a long time, and this creates the emotion of frustration. And whether you are rightfully justified or not, it is still disturbing to you neurophysiology and your health.

If you consciously make a choice to stay in appreciation when the environment is telling you otherwise, you create a state of coherency which reinforces your health and well-being and your brain function. This puts you in a much better place than if you surrendered to being pissed off and frustrated. So again, spiritual warriorship calls for us to remain in appreciation even when the environment is giving us the cues that we have the right and the reason and justification for being frustrated and angry.

It takes spiritual discipline to do this. It is something we have to train ourselves to do - those of us who choose to take that path.

For me personally, as a pragmatist, regardless of whether all of this is true or not, at least I will be in a greater state of well-being than if I don't do this.

Secondly, staying in a state of coherency might have an affect on others around me. Those that may be on the fence might be tilted by enough emanations of coherency coming from me and others around the world. This gives me hope.

At the third level, I do feel that this is the battle between the light and the dark and that the forces metaphysically that want to perpetuate hatred and fear are neutralized in the face of appreciation and compassion. So although we might not be able to identify exactly who the source of all this is politically, we can, by going metaphysically to a state of coherency, remain in compassion and awareness.

Diane: And at that level it is not personal. . .

Tom: At that level it is not personal, no - it becomes universal collective. And we are doing what we can at the metaphysical level. I think that is the most beautifully pragmatic and simple way to proceed at this moment as I see it.

Diane: Tom, thank you once again for your wisdom.

Tom: You're welcome.

Scientists Validate Near-Death Experiences

By ABCNEWS.com

Scientists validate "near-death" experiences.

When a car plowed into the vehicle in which she was riding, Leslie's chest was crushed, eight bones were broken and her heart stopped beating for three minutes. Before she was revived, she says she glimpsed the afterlife.

"My next experience was really lying on the ground outside of the car, and it was actually an out-of-body experience that I had," says Leslie, who declined to give her last name. "I was actually floating above my body, and I looked down, and I saw all these men working on this poor girl who was down below, about eight feet below me, and she was struggling."

An estimated 7 million people have reported hauntingly similar "near-death" experiences. And a new study in the British medical journal Lancet gives credence to such accounts, concluding they are valid.

Scientists Study Near-Death Experiences

ABCNEWS' Medical Editor Dr. Tim Johnson says this study lends more credibility to the possibility that these near-death accounts are accurate because the researchers conducted the interviews soon after the experiences occurred. The study does not provide a way to scientifically measure whether or not there is life after death, however.

The study reported in Lancet looked at 344 patients in the Netherlands who were successfully resuscitated after suffering cardiac arrest in 10 Dutch hospitals.

Rather than using data from people reporting past near-death experiences, researchers talked to patients within a week after they had suffered clinical deaths and been resuscitated. (Clincical death was defined as a period of unconsciousness caused by insufficient blood supply to the brain.)

About 18 percent of the patients in the study reported being able to recall some portion of what happened when they were clinically dead; and 8 to 12 percent reported going through "near-death" experiences, such as seeing lights at the end of tunnels, or being able to speak to dead relatives or friends. Most had excellent recall of the events, which undermines the theory that the memories are false, the study said.

"We don't even begin to have the tools to debate the subject on a rational scientific basis," Johnson told Good Morning America. "I don't think our belief on afterlife is defined on a cause of the brain." Johnson, who serves as assisting minister of the Community Covenant Church in West Peabody, Mass., said belief in the afterlife remains primarily a matter of personal faith.

Brain Down, Consciousness On?

Lead researcher Pim van Lommel of the Hospital Rijnstate in the Netherlands said the study suggests that researchers investigating consciousness should not look in the cells and molecules alone.

Even when the brain is not showing signs of electrical activity, it is possible that a person can still be conscious, he said. In other words, people can be conscious of events around them even when they are physically unconscious.

"Compare it with a TV program," he told The Washington Post . "If you open the TV set you will not find the program. The TV set is a receiver. When you turn off your TV set, the program is still there but you can't see it. When you put off your brain, your consciousness is still there but you can't feel it in your body."

Many people describe seeing their own bodies from a distance, as though watching a movie. Others say they felt their bodies rushing toward a brilliant light.

Some who have had this experience say it's a sign there is a tunnel that leads to eternal life, but researchers do not really know what the visions mean. The study does not address whether there is such a thing as the soul, God or the afterlife.

"I think what's happening is that people are trying to validate their experience by making these paranormal claims, but you don't need to do that," said Susan Blackmore, a psychology professor at the University of the West of England in Bristol. "They're valid experiences in themselves, only they're happening in the brain and not in the world out there."

She believes the experiences are like a movie that our brains run at times of extreme traumatic stress. The brain creates endorphins which can reduce pain, and under extreme stress, these large amounts of endorphins produce a dreamlike state of euphoria.

Life Beyond Death

Some of those who described the experiences to ABCNEWS say they feel they were given the opportunity to explore life beyond death.

"I was looking down, and I saw my body, and I saw the doctors," said Jessie Lott, one woman who was resuscitated.

"I had come into this place of brilliant, beautiful life," said another, Dannion Brinkley.

"The feeling of peacefulness, the feeling of utter acceptance, utter — I mean, love, and it sounds so hokey, and I hate that part of it, because there aren't really good words to describe it," Leslie said.

Another woman described how she felt she was being pulled toward a giant tunnel, a common theme in the near-death experiences.

"I couldn't stop it. I didn't know why I was moving. I was just pulled right through this enormous, infinite tunnel," said Diane Morrissey.

Blackmore says science can also explain those tunnels: Electrical brain scans show that in our last moments, as the brain is deprived of oxygen, cells fire frantically and at random in the part of the brain which govern vision.

"Now, imagine that you've got lots and lots of cells firing in the middle, towards fewer at the outside, what's it going to look like? Bright light in the middle fading off towards dark at the outside," Blackmore said. "I think that's where the tunnel comes from. And as the oxygen level drops, so the bright light becomes bigger and more immediate, and you get this sensation of rushing forward into the light."

Scientist Turned Spiritual Healer

But not all scientists are skeptics when it comes to explaining near-death phenomena, and researchers have debated such issues for years.

Joyce Hawkes, a cell biologist with a PhD, had an accident that forever changed her life — and her view of science. She suffered a concussion from a falling window.

"I think that part of me — that my spirit, my soul — left my body and went to another reality," she said. She was surprised at the experience.

"It just was not part of the paradigm in which I lived as a scientist," Hawkes recalled. "Iit was a big surprise to me to have this sense of something different than the body — a consciousness different than the body — and to be in this wonderfully healing, peaceful, nurturing place."

Hawkes now works as a spiritual healer.

"I think what I learned was that there truly is no death, that there is a change in state from a physical form to a spirit form, and that there's nothing to fear about that passage," she said.

The Dutch researchers found that people who had such experiences reported marked changes in their personalities compared with those who had come near death, but had not had those experiences. They seemed to have lost their fear of death, and became more compassionate, loving people.

"I can hardly wait to die, and yet I don't have a death wish. I live my life a hundred percent more now because I have such a fine appreciation about what might happen to us and where we might go," said Morrissey.

My heart leaped and my head jerked when I read this: "The world needs a global war on poverty and environmental degradation that is as aggressive and well funded as the war on terrorism".

And this: "...when the first Bush administration refused to embrace mandatory commitments to counter climate change."

And then this: "...More than 24,000 NGOs are now active at the international level. NGOs activated millions of people in a series of important campaigns...".

And lastly and so joyously this: "Trends are still headed largely in the wrong direction, but a shift in global consciousness is clearly discernable"

We NGO Lightworkers so very very much appreciate that an organization as huge and as such as yours is aware of and publicly acknowledges a shift in global consciousness; it's the fuel that keeps us keeping on.

I take my hat off 2 all of u 4 doing the work that u r doing

FREEDOM

Man does not want freedom, he only talks of it,
Satisfied to choose his slavery and to pay it homage.
Freedom asks too much: Silence and strength,
The death of empty alliances, an end to ego baths.

Freedom confronts loneliness and lives with it,
Makes more of larks than lust, Builds no monuments to itself.
Freedom, content to live without goals, Satisfied that living is enough,
Scoffs at titles, laughs at greed, Too free to propose reforms.

Man does not want freedom, He fears its demands,
And only needs to talk of it - The Free Man has no such need.
But man can live without freedom, Content to laugh at slavery
And to know today That yesterday’s pain is gone.
