4. Humanitarian Watch for Africa and Iraq
As the world enters a new difficult phase in its evolutionary progress towards greater awareness and spiritual unification, Light Servers throughout the world bear a unique responsibility in anchoring the highest possible vibrations of Peace, Love and Harmony within the vast confines of our awakening global consciousness, in synchronous service with the Light Forces that have gathered from several dimensions and other physical locations in this Universe, all joined in heightened assistance at this critical juncture of our cosmic saga towards Reunification with the Source of All That Is. As each individual Light Server becomes more able to withstand the fear and anxiety generated by opposing entities through various world events in their long but ultimately futile attempt to block the inflow of Light and resulting greater freedom of souls embodied in this planetary field of learning and awakening, the rest of our brothers and sisters' struggling souls become likewise more able to surf the tide of events and remain anchored in the deep-seated trust that positive forces, infinitely greater that negative ones, will ultimately prevail and that the innate goodness in all souls will find a way to express itself until unconditional Love and spiritually-rooted happiness prevail for all sentient beings on Earth, so that ultimately everything is on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Please dedicate your prayers and meditations, as guided by Spirit, in the coming two weeks, and especially in synchronous attunement at the usual time this Sunday and the following one, to contribute in stimulating, through your own sense of Oneness with All That Is, an ever greater sense of common will in all to do good and serve the highest purpose we all came here to serve as part of our mission of personal and global redemption in the ever-rising ascent towards the pinnacle of Love known as God/Creator/Source of All That Is. May we continuously strive to create moments of divine unification with this Source living in each one of our multifaceted expressions of Oneness so as to become ever more consciously aware of Who We Are and thus radiate in every single moment ever greater amount of Goodness, Kindness and Oneness so as to bring this realization to all our companions in this eternal cosmic saga, for the Highest Good of All.

REMEMBER YOUR MISSION
by Patricia Diane Cota-Robles
New Age Study of Humanity's Purpose
Era of Peace Welcome Page : http://www.1spirit.com/eraofpeace
It is easy to feel discouraged and overwhelmed when we see atrocities occurring in the world, but I implore you to go within and remember your mission. The Earth is going through a unique experiment, and every embodied soul is here because we agreed to assist in this experiment. Whether you remember it or not, you have been preparing a very long time for this opportunity. You have everything you need within you to accomplish your facet of the Divine Plan, and no one else can succeed in fulfilling your mission as effectively as you can.
People all over the planet are awakening and remembering who they are and why they are here. They are remembering that they are Beloved Sons and Daughters of God and that they have come to Earth to assist this planet and all her life in the Ascension process. In order for Earth's Ascension up the Spiral of Evolution to be accomplished effectively, the old, obsolete 3rd-Dimensional patterns of human miscreation must be transmuted into Light, and the new 4th- and 5th-Dimensional patterns of perfection from the Causal Body of God must be anchored in the core of purity in every electron of precious life energy. We are in the midst of this process now.
Over the last twenty years, myriad activities of Light have taken place that changed the course of history. In addition to many other miraculous accomplishments, these activities cleared the way for the activation of the matrix and archetypes for Divine Government. This event took place in Washington, D.C., in August 2002, during the sixteenth celebration of Harmonic Convergence.
The matrix and archetypes for Divine Government contain all of the 5th-Dimensional patterns of perfection that are associated with government. These patterns include not only the highest Divine Intent and potential of governments in every country of the world but the highest expression of self-government for every individual as well.
These patterns fulfill the Universal Law - As Above So Below - and truly reflect a government OF the God Selves of Humanity, BY the God Selves of Humanity, FOR the God Selves of Humanity. This is a government that recognizes the Divine Truth that all life is interconnected, interrelated and interdependent, a government that reveres the Oneness of ALL Life and perpetually works to support and sustain the highest good for all concerned.
Once the matrix and archetypes for Divine Government were activated in Washington, D.C., the 5th-Dimensional patterns of perfection expanded through the Crystal Grid System and entered every atomic and subatomic particle of life on Earth. When the patterns of Divine Government were anchored, the obsolete, mutated patterns of government were pushed to the surface to be healed and transmuted back into Light.
These distorted patterns contain the archetypes of all of the horrific abuse of power governments have inflicted on their own people and the peoples of the world since the fall of Humanity aeons ago. They also contain the archetypes of the atrocities Humanity has inflicted on each other throughout time.
As these patterns surface to be healed, they affect people in various ways. We each have the gift of free will, and we have the ability to choose how we respond to this negative energy as it enters our lives.
Awakened Lightworkers diligently work to assist the healing process by invoking the Light of God and transmuting the negative patterns back into their original perfection. Unfortunately, the lower human egos of people who have not yet awakened do not realize what is happening, so they respond with fear and anxiety. In a reflex response, the unawakened souls revert back to behaviors that are familiar and act out in ways that have seemed to work in the past. That is what we are witnessing on Earth at this time.
It is important for people to understand that the old, obsolete archetypes of war, aggression, violence, greed and corruption do not exist in the 5th-Dimensional patterns of Divine Government that have now been activated on Earth. Therefore, those gross mutations cannot be sustained in the physical plane for very long, and they will no longer be effective modes of operation.
There is an expression that states...We don't know what we don't know. Until people awaken and remember the Oneness of ALL Life, they truly do not comprehend the ramifications of their destructive behavior patterns. Their human egos have manipulated them into believing that they must participate in such actions in order to survive.
For this reason, it is counterproductive for awakened Lightworkers to be judgmental and critical of people who are making decisions to participate in obsolete behavior patterns that no longer serve the highest good. Those souls actually do not know any better, and our judgments and criticisms just feed the problem. Instead, we must transcend the negativity and volunteer to serve as surrogates on behalf of the unawakened souls. Through this process, we will help lift our unawakened brothers and sisters into the Light. Once they are able to lift their heads above the mud puddle of fear and anxiety, their God Selves will take dominion, and they will experience their own awakening.
The Truth is, everybody is doing the best he or she can according to their wisdom and understanding. We often think people should know better and that they should realize the Oneness of Life, but if they really did know better they would not participate in the old paradigms of war, violence, aggression, corruption, greed, etc.
When miraculous events take place such as the activation of the matrix and archetypes for Divine Government, it is always the hope of our Father-Mother God and the Spiritual Hierarchy serving the Earth that awakened Lightworkers will be able to transmute the surfacing negative energy before the lower human egos of unawakened souls latch onto it and create more problems. Since we all have the gift of free will, however, the path Humanity will choose is never certain.
This time, at a deep heart level, awakened Lightworkers intuitively knew what the potential ramifications would be if we resorted to the obsolete patterns of war and violence. For the first time in history, millions of people all over the world joined together in the greatest, most massive peace demonstrations the world has ever seen.
The hope was that those in positions of power would listen to our pleas and lift up in consciousness enough to see the Light. Their God Selves could then have accelerated their awakening process. Awakened leaders would have been able to perceive peaceful solutions to the world's problems. This would have allowed the new 5th-Dimensional archetypes for Divine Government to become the order of the day.
In spite of the valiant efforts of Lightworkers around the world, those in positions of power chose the most difficult path of all. Now we will perceive, as never before, the Divine Truth that war is NOT the answer. An effective and sustained military victory would merely perpetuate the myth that war and violence are viable solutions to the world's problems. They are not, and once this war is over, such violent actions will not be considered feasible alternatives for the challenges existing on Earth. When this war and all of the extenuating circumstances associated with it are complete, war will not be considered as a last resort; it will not be considered an option at all.
Even though the leaders of our governments did not heed our pleas for a peaceful solution, that does not mean that our efforts toward Peace have failed. On the contrary, this is the moment for which we have been training. It is time to remember your mission. The unified efforts of Lightworkers are making a tremendous difference in both the severity and the duration of this war.
Ages ago, when we took our vows in the Heart of God and volunteered to embody on Earth during this momentous time, we were shown the various scenarios that the lower human egos of Humanity might play out in these latter days. We saw the potential of this war, and we knew that we would have the ability to intervene. We also knew that we would have all of the necessary skills to prevent a global holocaust. Now is the time for us to implement those skills.
In order for you to be the most powerful instrument of God during this critical moment on Earth, you must go within to the deepest recesses of your heart, and ask your God Self to reveal to you how you can assist. Do not underestimate your ability to make a positive difference. You are powerful beyond your knowing, and all that your Father-Mother God has is yours.
There are many activities of Light taking place, and, day by day, unique opportunities are being presented to each of us. Pay attention and respond to your heart's call. If an opportunity presents itself and you feel the inner prompting to be an instrument of God for that particular facet of the Divine Plan, DO IT! Make the necessary sacrifice. Know that whenever you expend your time, energy or money for service to Humanity and the Divine Plan, the floodgates of Heaven open up to support you and to amplify your efforts.
LISTEN TO YOUR HEART AND SEE IF THE FOLLOWING OPPORTUNITY RESONATES AS PART OF YOUR DIVINE SERVICE TO GOD AND HUMANITY.
The following is a visualization that was given to Humanity by the Spiritual Hierarchy to assist us in anchoring and expanding the Divine Love of our Mother God. Lightworkers around the world have been empowering this visualization for several months. Please add your radiant Light to this forcefield of Divine Love.
The electronic pattern for this forcefield is a magnetic Heart of Pure Divine Love enfolding Planet Earth. This crystalline-pink Heart, formed through Humanity's unified consciousness, magnetically attracts the energy, vibration and consciousness from every Ascended level of Being in the Universe into our planetary cause of manifesting the Era of Eternal Peace and Abundance that is now dawning.
Seven magnificent Solar Archangels of pure Divine Love now descend into the atmosphere of Earth from the electronic belt around the Great, Great Central Sun. They joyously take their strategic positions around this planet to assist us in this activity of Light. The Solar Archangels are stationed at the four cardinal points around the planet, as well as above, below and directly within the center of the Earth.
These Beings are now conducting a symphony of Love ensouling and interpenetrating our Beloved Earth. Each Lightworker is a power point of Light unified in consciousness with every other Lightworker inbreathing, absorbing, expanding and projecting this forcefield throughout Humanity, the Nature and Elemental Kingdoms, the Angelic Kingdoms and the entire atmosphere of Earth.
As we experience the manifestation of this forcefield of Unconditional Divine Love, we see the deep colors of Love, smell the fragrance of Love and hear the Cosmic Tones and moving melodies of Love. Through this activity, we are truly Love in action, collectively changing the core vibration of the primal Light substance, which has gone into the present conditions on Earth.
We are the CAUSE of this magnetic forcefield of Love anchored on Earth. Through this activity of Light, we are setting in place the basic spiritual forces of Divine Love over which Humanity will Ascend out of our long exile in darkness into the Realms of Light.
As we unify in consciousness with the Kingdoms of Earth and the Realms of Heaven, we create an Open Door to explore and rediscover the great Family of God in which we will find complete support for the fulfillment of our Divine Plans.
This is what the magnetic forcefield of Divine Love is attracting to each of us personally as we live within it. We are being raised into a profound reawakening of supreme Love consciousness, becoming again the Masters of Love we have always been and truly are here and now.
We now recognize ourselves as Beings of Love, accepting responsibility for Loving this sweet Earth and all her life free. We are One with this blessed planet, and the planet is One with us.
The seven Solar Archangels are now projecting their luminous presence to surround each of us in a Cosmic Forcefield of Divine Love. This forcefield is anchored to the north, south, east and west of us, as well as above, below and directly within the Divinity of our hearts.
We are now a planetary forcefield of Unconditional Divine Love. The Love of God is now thriving on Earth through us. We each feel the Heart of Love healing the primal Light substance of our four lower bodies and all the physical, etheric, mental and emotional spheres of Earth.
Together we are changing the inner conditions for the entire planet, and we are setting this Earth on a new planetary course of Divine Love. We feel complete unity with ALL Life as we inbreathe, absorb, expand and project this forcefield into every aspect of Humanity's day-to-day functioning with every breath we take. And so it is!
4. Humanitarian Watch for Africa
Please keep in mind during your prayers and meditation the very difficult situation faced by millions of our brothers and sisters in Africa who are suffering from hunger as a consequence of extreme poverty, drought, armed conflicts and political upheavals, so as to foster a greater global awareness of this unfolding tragedy and ensure that greater and more sustained support and food relief assistance are provided in a timely manner. Likewise the Iraqi population faces a food crisis in the near future if security and stability are not soon restored in the wake of the chaos and looting that followed the end of the war there last week. Fostering peace, security and return to normalcy would help the work of the humanitarian organizations that are waiting to participate in the relief efforts that are slowly getting under way. More on both these crisis below.
40 million starving 'as world watches Iraq'
UN agency accuses west of pledging to feed victims of Gulf war while concern for plight of hungry Africans fades
Rory Carroll in Kanywambizi, Zimbabwe
Wednesday April 9, 2003
Forty million Africans are at risk of starving but are not getting enough aid because the world is distracted by Iraq, the World Food Programme has warned.
In an impassioned appeal to the United Nations security council, James Morris, the UN agency's executive director, accused the west of double standards.
"How is it we routinely accept a level of suffering and hopelessness in Africa we would never accept in any other part of the world? We simply cannot let this stand."
The agency was $1bn (£640m) short of the $1.8bn it needed for emergency food, he said. "We urgently need more funds in the next several months to avert severe hunger among refugees," he said.
"The mid-February shortfall was $84m. Some refugees are already receiving only half their monthly food rations."
Africa's need for humanitarian aid was greater than Iraq's, yet it was receiving less attention and less money.
"They are struggling against starvation, and I can assure you these 40 million Africans, most of them women and children, would find it an immeasurable blessing to have a month's worth of food."
Mr Morris contrasted the British and US governments' pledges to feed Iraqis with what he considered fading concern for Africa.
"As much as I don't like it, I cannot escape the thought that we have a double standard."
According to the agency, food shortages threaten 14 million in Ethiopia, 7 million in Zimbabwe, 3.2 million in Malawi, 2.9 million in Sudan, 2.7 million in Zambia, 1.9 million in Angola, 1 million in Eritrea, as well as millions more in Swaziland, Lesotho, Mozambique, Uganda, Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, and the western Sahel - those countries in the dry belt south of the Sahara.
Causes ranged from bad weather to warfare, but hunger had been compounded by the HIV/Aids pandemic.
By weakening the immune system, the disease could turn malnutrition into a killer, one that targeted breadwinners, leaving fields fallow and families impoverished.
In fewer than 20 years, the disease is estimated to have killed more than 8 million farmworkers and orphaned 4.2 million children in Africa.
"The stark message is this crisis is not going to go away. We will have a perpetual crisis," said Brenda Barton, an agency spokeswoman in Kenya. "We are seeing a redefinition of famine, of humanitarian crises as we know them."
The outskirts of Kanywambizi in western Zimbabwe illustrates the point, with fields of shrivelled maize amid huts of sick, enfeebled farmers. "All we have to eat are these watermelons. Once they are finished, that's it," said Ngululeko Sibanda, 23, a father of two, yesterday.
However, there is hope in the short term. Despite turmoil in Zimbabwe and fighting in Congo and western Africa, crops were planted and harvests are due.
By June Zimbabwe's government expects the number in need of food aid to more than halve, to 3 million, a view shared by several aid agencies and diplomats. Once harvests are consumed, the numbers will rise again.
Malawi's needs have dwindled due to a good harvest, and some aid agencies say too much food aid has been imported. The government has been allowed to sell part of its grain reserves, though there is fear that local farmers will be ruined if food is dumped on the market.
The WFP's decision to step up its appeal is partly a political calculation: Africa's food shortage will last for years. Because aid has so far averted horrific scenes of hunger, there is a risk donors will consider the crisis resolved, especially with the distraction of Iraq.
Since September 11 and Washington's war on terror, the agency has learned to shout louder in order to gain attention and funds.
"I am very concerned, because the world's attention is so focused on Iraq, that from Afghanistan to South Africa, funding for these real ongoing crises could be put in jeopardy," said Carol Bellamy, director of Unicef, the UN children's fund,in Johannesburg.

Aid agencies say security concerns are holding them back
Rory McCarthy in Camp as-Sayliya, Qatar
Saturday April 19, 2003
The first major UN food convoy headed for Baghdad yesterday as aid agencies warned that poor security was now seriously hampering their work.
The World Food Programme convoy of 50 trucks, carrying 1,400 tonnes of wheat flour, drove out from Jordan and was due to reach the capital last night. WFP officials have warned that most Iraqis have only enough food left to last them two weeks.
"Our estimate is that as early as the beginning of May problems will start to occur," said Maarten Roest, a WFP spokesman in Amman.
But security concerns mean that the flour will have to be stockpiled in warehouses as the capital is still not safe enough to allow food parcels to be handed out.
In Baghdad WFP staff are trying to find the 9,000 Iraqis who worked with the former regime to distribute the government's monthly rations, on which more than half the population relied.
Each district in the city has warehouses and established shops where food rations were handed out and which could form the basis for a new aid distribution network.
Despite aid agencies' usual reluctance to work with the military, Mr Roest said the drivers of the convoy may have agreed to accept a US military escort for the journey to Baghdad. "Our mission is delivering humanitarian aid," he said.
Another 30 UN aid workers who were trying to travel to the Kurdish regions of northern Iraq have been held up at Larnaca, in Cyprus, because the US military refused to give their flight security clearance.
"It is too long a process to return to an area where direct conflict did not occur," said Veronique Taveau, who is a spokeswoman for the UN Office of the Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq. Other aid agencies have also complained that the US military is not giving them permission to bring flights into Iraq because of continued instability.
Save the Children has been trying to fly a plane into Irbil, in the Kurdish region, with enough medical supplies to treat 40,000 people as well as emergency food stocks. But US military officials have refused permission for aid flights.
"The doctors we are trying to help in Mosul have been struggling against the odds for weeks to continue saving lives, but now the help we have promised them is being endlessly delayed," said Rob MacGillivray, the group's emergency programme manager.
In the Kurdish regions in northern Iraq it has been easier to deliver food by road. A convoy of 100 WFP trucks crossed from Turkey on Thursday bringing food.
Since the first convoy arrived in the north two weeks ago around 10,000 tonnes of wheat flour has been distributed, enough to feed around 600,000 people for a month.
The British aid agency Oxfam, which is working in southern Iraq, has warned that access to clean water may be a more serious problem in the short term than food shortages. "At the moment it is looking much more urgent than food," said Zahra Akkerhuys, a spokeswoman for Oxfam in Amman.
Its engineers have found that water treatment plants in the south and even a chlorine factory in the town of Zubayr have been badly looted.
"Even the very basic parts have been stolen, which means the plants don't work. We know the situation will get worse in the next two months because the temperature is going to start rising," said Ms Akkerhuys.
An Ilyushin-7 transport aircraft was due to fly today to Kuwait for Oxfam bringing 17 tonnes of sanitation and water treatment equipment, including pumps and spare parts, as well as three four-wheel drive vehicles.
Water deliveries are already being trucked into the south, but much more is needed. "The aid is getting there but it is the tip of the iceberg," said Ms Akkerhuys.
But security concerns in the south mean that Oxfam's engineers have been unable even to reach Basra, Iraq's second largest city, which is less than 30 miles from the border with Kuwait.
"All we can do is progress as and when we can. It is a very finely balanced situation," she said. Looters tried to burn the chlorine factory in Zubayr and local Iraqi officials at the plant, which is vital for water treatment in the south, have said there is now only enough chlorine for another 15 days.
For the first time in more than 20 years an aid convoy crossed into Iraq from Iran yesterday, bringing more than 100,000 litres of drinking water supplied by Unicef. The trucks were heading for Faw, on the southern coast close to Basra.
Iran has kept its border closed since the latest conflict began, fearing a wave of refugees.
