A Wish For My Birthday...

I have always been able to make friends easily...always been someone people seek out and like to spend time with. It probably has a lot to do with the fact that I am usually pretty upbeat and positive, although I think there is a little more to it than that. From the time I was small, I could see the light in others, and I treated them accordingly. People appreciate being seen and respected for who they are and are very receptive to anyone who can see them this way.

When I look at people, I don't see gender, or race, or religion, or political orientation, or culture, or sexual orientation, or body size/shape, or any of those labels the world places on people which ultimately divide and separate them. I see their hopes, their fears, their accomplishments, their frustrations, their sadnesses, their illness, their joys, their hearts. I see the light within each one, and my own light within reaches out to touch each individual I come into contact with--to embrace it and say, "I love you!" And I do it without words. On some level, people get this, and they respond in positive ways.

Today is my birthday. It has been lovely so far and promises to get better as I continue to celebrate forty-seven years of life. There is, however, one fly in the ointment. I see so much disharmony in the world. There are too many people who go through life labeling and judging everyone they run across. This one is liberal. That one is conservative. This one is gay. That one is straight. We use these labels (which we have been taught through our upbringings!) to distinguish ourselves and find our place in the world. The problem is, labels do not make us who we are! The labels only serve to divide and separate us from one another.

We are not labels!!! We are light!!! My wish for my birthday is for you to spend a few minutes to recognize your own light as well as the light of all others. It is time to understand we are all beings of immense value and worth! It is time to allow ourselves to shine our own light and to be willing to allow the light in others to expand and magnify the light we personally carry. It is only by opening up and sharing this light that we can expand and grow into the beings we are truly meant to be. A new and exciting world awaits us all once we can embrace this understanding!
With all my love,

Truth and Perspective

There is a children's story based on an old African folk tale I used to love to read to my Pre-K students called "Seven Blind Mice" by Ed Young. In the story, the blind mice each try to understand the strange new object that has come into their environment through their sense of touch. One at a time, each mouse approaches the object, and each mouse concludes it is something different. Their conclusions vary greatly to things like a pillar, a spear and a fan. They all argue about their conclusions until the last mouse goes to explore the strange new object. She runs up one side and down another testing and feeling it until she has covered it in its entirety. The last mouse concludes the other mice are all correct! She explores the object so completely she knows the other mice have all found different parts of the same whole. When she points out her findings to the other mice, they thoroughly explore the same object until they too know the whole truth. The object is an elephant. It is one object with many different features, but until it is explored from every possible perspective you cannot fully appreciate what it is.

Truth is often like this elephant. We grasp the leg, or the tusk or the ear and are convinced we know and understand the whole truth. We form our conclusions accordingly! Are our conclusions wrong? No. They are just incomplete. So many times we argue and bicker over incomplete understandings, and the only thing these arguments do is create tension and separation.

Next time someone confronts you with a different perspective, don't just assume they are wrong and you are right! Be willing to listen to what they say and share what you understand. Ask questions in a loving and peaceful manner. You might just find your understanding of truth greatly increases.

Too Big To Jail? The Lie and What To Do About It

The law of attraction says that what you think about, you create. Lately it has dawned on me that the power elite (you might call them the cabal) have created some very powerful ideas that have infiltrated the minds of society. One of the most powerful thoughts they've promoted is the belief that they cannot be jailed for the crimes they have committed against us! For the time being, it has been highly successful--but not for long!!! We the People have the power to change it all through our thoughts!!!

For centuries, those with money have plotted and planned to take over the system. They have done highly illegitimate things in order to get to the top and stay on the top. They have infiltrated all levels of government in order to monopolize legitimate markets and manipulate the economy. At a subconscious level, we all understand this corruption. We sense it and feel it yet we feel like we don't have the power to stop it. This is the mental lie we need to overcome in order to stop it all!

Think about it. Haven't there been times when we've all discussed how a politicians seems to have been paid off to vote a certain way or complained about new fees from a bank that already makes plenty of money off the interest we've paid for our cars and mortgages? We all have a sense that these things are wrong, but when someone makes the statement, "They need to go to jail, " the comeback line is automatically, "Oh, that will never happen!" Why? Because the power elite have caused us to think that! It is their idea--not ours!!!

The way we can overcome this to stand up to them and say, "No more!!!" We can point out everything they do that is the least little bit corrupt and say, "We are not going to allow this any longer!" We need to talk to our families, our friends, our neighbors, our coworkers--anyone we happen to meet--and make sure they specifically begin to think that the rich can and will be prosecuted for their crimes! Promote it through emails and social media! The key here is to make sure more and more people begin to think about real justice happening for them (instead of against them which is much more often the case at this point).

There are many more of us (We the People) than there are of them! The rich stay in power because we accept the ideas they promote about themselves as true! The more we believe that true justice is coming, the more we will make it happen! This is the power of the law of attraction. Let's make it work for us!

The idea that the rich are too big to jail is a lie! It is time for We the People to see justice! Picture a world where people with integrity run things--a world where those who would enslave us cease to control us!

My Intuition and Barack Obama

My political ideals have run the gamut from extremely liberal to highly conservative. At this point in time, I would definitely consider myself to be very socially liberal (especially when it comes to gay rights) but much more conservative from a financial standpoint. I believe in smaller government, less regulation, and a free market (although I will qualify the free market part by saying it needs to be based on truth and integrity--something very lacking in the market today). Full transparency in government and business is key.

My initial feelings about Barack Obama when he ran for office back in 2008 were, admittedly, based in large part on my reasoning. I could see how everything seemed to come together--media coverage, money, etc.--to place him in office, and it really scared me. What scared me was the idea that "the machine" (what I call the powers that be with their hidden, secret agendas) seemed very interested in putting him into power. I know I don't like or trust "the machine" because I believe it is extremely self-serving, and if they really wanted this candidate in office he was probably their minion. I did not vote for Obama mainly for this reason. The point is, I based my vote not on my intuition but on my logic.

Over time, I was not overly impressed by what I saw as his agenda to increase both the size of government and the laws restricting our freedom. Some of the things that stood out to me were his signature on the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA 2012), which allowed for people accused of being terrorists to be detained without charge or trial indefinitely, and his Executive Order 12919, which allows the government to take over all resources in both emergency and non-emergency conditions (the non-emergency part is what scared me). My mind told me that Obama was doing thing to take away what little freedom we seemed to still have.

However, my heart has told me differently here and there (when I have bothered to consult it). For example, back at the end of 2012--when I knew the NDAA 2012 had been passed by both the Senate and the House and was awaiting Obama's signature to become law, I was meditating/praying about the situation. I allowed myself to ask what Obama was thinking/feeling and I felt my spiritual self visiting Obama. I felt a very strong sense of anguish from him over the bill--like he didn't want to sign it but knew he needed to. I can't interpret from that why he did it. I only know I felt his deep anguish and that it resonated in my heart as truth. I put this experience at the back of my mind for months until I heard some information given by a guy known as Bill Wood.

I first heard of Bill back in February of this year in an interview with Project Camelot's Kerry Cassidy where he gave whistleblower testimony of having been blackmailed by the military to continue to guide tomahawk missiles into questionable targets after first refusing. You can watch the whole three hour interview here. Several things about this interviewed resonated with me. Bill was willing to put his crime out there for public display so that it no longer had any power over him. Toward the end of the interview, Bill also filled me with a great deal of hope. He had been consulted on the data from a government project meant to see into the future. The data seemed to indicate that at some point in the future (Dec. 21, 2012 to be precise) all choices would lead to one big choice, the outcome of which would decide who would be in power in the world. The data seemed to indicate that the powers that be would become the powers that were. Needless to say, the powers that be want to continue to be in power. Bill was asked if there was any choice they could make which would change the outcome. His conclusion was "No". In other words, it didn't matter what they did to try to stay in power. Nothing would work!

Bill's message of hope resonated so strongly in my heart I was eager to see what else he had to say. I gobbled up interviews and information he put out because of how much his overall message resonated with me. Then he came out with a message I did not want to hear. Bill's sources told him Barack Obama was actually working against the machine to try to weed out the corruption and change things! (You can find Bill's message here.) As he continued on, Bill made a few statements about Obama signing things that seemed to take away our rights, but the real reasons he did those things was to undermine the criminals who run our country. For example, Obama signed the NDAA 2012 so that they could hold the criminals who run our country! He signed his executive order 12919 so that when they began arresting the powers that be they couldn't created chaos by turning off our electricity, water, phone service, etc. (Think about it: if Americans were forced to go without those things turmoil would ensue and we could easily be conned into accepting the powers that be as our "saviors".) Bill also claimed that Obama signed America up to be a part of the world criminal courts so that criminals could no longer hide out in America.

It is this last message that resonates with me strongly today. You see, I have been listening to information put out by another insider who goes by the name of Drake. Last night, Drake gave an update on some information he had put out a week ago known as Operation Green Light. This was supposed to be information from his military sources that arrests of people referred to as the cabal (the powers that be) were going to begin. During the course of the update, Drake discussed the RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) charges that had been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York against Donald Trump and George Soros, and made mention of the fact that, now that America is part of the international court system, there is nowhere on the planet these men can run and hide!

Now that America is part of the international court system! What a powerful set of words! To think, it is largely based on actions taken by Barack Obama--the President who has been totally slammed by the media (who originally helped put him in office) for the past couple of years, especially over things he has done to "take away our constitutional rights"! Because of Barack Obama, the criminals who run our world no longer have any place to hide.

It's still hard for me to reconcile the differences between what my head has told me verses what my intuition has told me about Barack Obama. I have definitely spent more time listening to the voice in my head over the voice in my heart. Funny thing is, it is the voice in my heart that has proved truthful over time. Considering all this, I have decided to give Obama the benefit of the doubt. Maybe my interpretation of the "facts" is not correct because I do not yet have all the information. Heaven knows, my intuition is definitely telling me there is much more to the story than meets the eye. I am quite willing to see how everything plays out before I paint Obama with the same brush as the powers that be.

Namaste and love, my friends!

Overcoming The Burden of Money

In the past, I have written much about the Law of Attraction. For many people (myself included) the talk often ends up revolving around money (or a lack thereof) and how to go about attracting more of it. While I always seem to have enough to pay my bills and do a few fun things here and there, money still feels like a burden to me. I get the impression I have to work harder and harder at a job that is not particularly fulfilling so that all my money can be sucked up by the system. I do believe I could get out of this with a different mindset. In the past, I have beaten myself up for not attracting more money and improving my circumstances. This morning, however, I had an epiphany. Money is a burden for the vast majority of people on the planet. The system was designed to make it that way!

Think about this: money is a man-made concept and instrument. The Creator did not place us on the planet and say, "Here is some money. Go buy what you need." God placed us on the planet with resources we could use to build our own shelter, make our own clothing, hunt and harvest our own food, etc. As we went along, we created more and more items to help make life a little easier for ourselves--fire, the wheel, plows, etc. Mother Earth provided all the resources we could ever want or need for us to improve our lives. Life was intended to be abundant and rewarding.

Money came into existence because of our growing needs to trade and barter. Once people began doing more specialized work (and stopped doing everything for themselves), they had to find some way to acquire those things they did need. For example, a carpenter would build a table for a farmer and receive meat or produce in return. As people became more sophisticated, value was assigned to various items or tasks. This task might be worth ten shells or that task might be worth five. Printed money was the eventual result.

Money in and of itself is not bad. What is bad is the idea that certain skill sets are worth much more than others. When we place a value on the services and/or products a person provided, we also begin to place them in a pecking order of sorts. In other words, we judge. Instead of working together, we begin to compete. It is this competition that leads us to the place where money becomes a burden.

Certain people seem drawn to the power associated with being at the top of the pecking order. In the past they were rulers and kings. As they acquired more and more power, they also acquired more and more gold/money. Most of us have the feeling that if we just had more money, our lives would be much easier, better. It is a pervasive idea that invades our deepest subconscious.

How was money designed to be a burden? Money became a burden when man began to enslave others through its use. (This is where to pecking order comes in.) Enslavement came about through numerous ways. Outright theft (for example, the spoils of war). Placing varying monetary values on different products and services and believing this increased or decreased personal worth. Charging interest on money loaned (usury). People are forced into various forms of slavery through its use.

Today in first world countries, slavery has become sophisticated and subtle. Our money is manipulated behind the scenes by those who already have too much of it (and consequently too much power). The powers that be even create more money, literally out of thin air, charge us interest on it, and then change the terms of the agreement in order to make us destitute. Even those of us who don't fall for their ploys are effected as the overall economy is weakened when more and more people can't afford the basic necessities of life and the demand for our products and services dries up.

There is a mindset that has been pervasive in the world. Those who own everything believe they are somehow smarter or better than the rest of us and hold the strong belief they deserve to have everything and don't need to work hard for it. They also believe it is the job of the rest of us to provide for their needs. It is strong enough that our psyches have subconsciously accepted these ideas as our own through that field that ties us all together. Yes, we can overcome that mindset, but it is not easy to do when the Universe constantly sends you that message. We are so much more psychically aware the we realize.

The thing is, money does not have to be a burden--for anyone! Every person on the planet has intrinsic worth or value. We all have gifts and talents which can be used to benefit the whole! Some people have a talent for healing. Some people have a talent for farming. Some people have a talent for hospitality. The list goes on and on and on! By using our talents for the benefit of the planet, everyone should prosper from what Mother Earth freely provides for all of us! It is not about race or religion or political system. None of our classifications make some people better than others! Money becomes a burden when we use it to make certain people "right" or "good".

We can overcome the burden of money by valuing the contributions of ourselves and others. In doing so, we choose to overcome our self-imposed slavery and live a life of choice, abundance and freedom.
