Sorry this info is late.....
"The best time to look will be between the time of moonset [between 1 and 2 a.m., local time] and dawn, and the best way to observe the show is to recline comfortably, facing anywhere from north to east and gazing nearly overhead," Cook said. news.nationalgeographic.com
Published April 19, 2010
For the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, nature will be setting off some fireworks, with the peak of the annual Lyrid meteor shower arriving on April 22.
While the Lyrids might not be cosmic celebrities like August's showy Perseids, the April meteor shower has been known to offer up a surprise or two for sky-watchers
(Related: "Comet 'Shower' Killed Ice Age Mammals?")
"Although the Lyrids have been observed since 687 B.C., the behavior of the shower from year to year is unpredictable," said Anthony Cook, an astronomer for the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.
"An average Lyrid shower produces between 10 and 20 meteors per hour, but occasionally these rates increase to 90 per hour," Cook said. "In 1803 the shower produced about a thousand meteors per hour"—just enough to qualify as a meteor storm.
How to See the Lyrid Meteors
This year, Lyrid meteor activity began picking up on April 16, and the shower will run until April 25.
The Earth Day peak will actually come in the early morning hours of April 22, after the first quarter moon has sunk below the horizon, leaving dark skies. (Test your lunar smarts with our moon quiz.)
"The best time to look will be between the time of moonset [between 1 and 2 a.m., local time] and dawn, and the best way to observe the show is to recline comfortably, facing anywhere from north to east and gazing nearly overhead," Cook said.
"The best location is a region far from urban light pollution with a fairly open horizon."
Lyrids to Be a Sprinkle or a Storm?
The Lyrids' "shooting stars" will appear to radiate from around the brilliant star Vega in the shower's namesake constellation Lyra.
Vega now shines nearly overhead in the predawn hours for stargazers in the Northern Hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere skies, the Lyrids will produce just a sprinkling of meteors.
As with other annual meteor showers, the Lyrids are thought to be caused by debris left over from a passing comet. When Earth passes through the trail of particles—most no bigger than grains of sand—the tiny rocks burn up in our atmosphere, creating bright streaks.
The Lyrids have been linked to the periodic comet Thatcher, which has an orbit that's skewed nearly perpendicular to the plane of the solar system, the tabletop-like plane along which the planets orbit.
The dearth of planets along the comet's path means that its debris trail stays relatively stable, which is most likely why the Lyrids have been a reliable meteor shower for centuries.
But sometimes Earth passes through a particularly dense clump of cometary leftovers, and that's when meteor rates skyrocket.
So are sky-watchers this year in for a sprinkle or a storm?
"The only way to know what the Lyrids have in store for you," Cook said, "is to go outside and observe them."

AN INVITATION TO ADD YOUR LOVE & LIGHT TO THE CONSCIOUSNESS GRIDS OF MOTHER EARTH
We invite each of you to add your Love and your Light to the Consciousness Grids here on Mother Earth. As Often as you think of it we encourage each of you to send your Heart Light to these Consciousness Grids around Mother Earth. Hold the Vision of Heaven on Earth. Raise your heart and your minds above the 3D Grids to assist in the building of the New Consciousness Grids of Love & Peace.
Many of you may already be participating with different groups on
this very project. For those who are not actively participating with a
Group, you may simply visualize a "Golden Web" of Light surrounding the
Earth as the Lightworkers around the planet participate in a conscious
and/or non-conscious state to build the New Earth Consciousness Grid or
Christ Consciousness Grid. For those of you who do not have inner
vision yet that enable you to see these grids, in the simplest form of
support you may simply close your eyes
and see purposely choose to see a beautiful new world at peace where every man, woman & child are living a joyful, rich and rewarding life.
For those who feel inspired there are Groups you can join to work together on this project. However all that is truly needed is your Heart Light holding the Vision of the New Earth! Remain calm and peaceful no matter what the news media are reporting. Focus on maintaining a "neutral" state of mind and inner balance. Remember to ask yourself; What am I feeding and nourishing in my world? Be the Co-Creators of the New Earth Energies and add your Love & Light to the WHOLE!
The Photon Energies is much lower this month, yet the energies are much gentler than past cycles when the Photon Energy has dropped this low. We are continually being "refined" by these cycles of "ebbing and flowing" in the Waves of Light.
The healing of the Mental & Emotional bodies continues to be the "subject" or "focus" of our Journey through Ascension. Family, loved ones, friends & the work place will continue to mirror to each of us just where we are still stuck in duality and where ego is ruling our lives. The beautiful part of this is, all of these areas will also mirror to us where we have found BALANCE in our lives and where we are functioning from our hearts and not the mental energies of the ego intellect that always need to be right.
Many are still experiencing a rewire, however to a lesser degree than previously as this rewire phase is reaching completion. Which is good, many of us are ready for a "pause" to regroup and integrate the new energies. Many of you are already experiencing the new levels of awareness and inner communication arriving for each of you.
Those of you who are still feeling isolated and feeling the need to sleep a lot, do not concern yourselves. During these periods your Higher Self is doing much work on inner levels with the Consciousness Grids of the Planet. So simply be gentle with yourselves knowing you have been working the "Night Shift" on the Consciousness Grids.
Many have continued to feel challenged by ongoing Life Lessons as the energies have continued to accelerate in clearing the Mental & Emotional Bodies for the individual and well as the Group Consciousness. The increasing frequencies of Light are pushing all of us to transform, transmute and adapt to the incoming Waves of Light. For those who are less conscious they will be acting out that which is in need of clearing, those of us who are choosing to remain more conscious will have the "pleasure" of clearing out all that is need of resolution and balancing.
Now is a perfect time to eliminate and release the old, outworn, outdated and obsolete in our lives. We will be urged to let go of old attitudes, communication and thinking patterns that no longer serve our purpose. We may feel the need to re-evaluate our needs for security and asked to eliminate rigid emotions that no longer serve us. This is an excellent time to undergo an internal form of house cleaning, and look into ourselves to determine exactly what we do and do not need.
Since the recent Equinox of March 21 most of us have felt an increased intensity in the energies around relationships in general, all relationships, for life experience is all a relationship to something/someone else. Most of us have noticed that everything "feels" a bit different than in the past, yet "appearances" have not changed much. For myself personally even though the energies have certainly "shifted" what I have noticed as being different than in the "past" is how the "Aries" energies are much softer than in years past, and I am able to move through the intensity with greater ease than before. We are certainly in "New Territory" so to speak.
But don't hold your breath.... We are moving into a potentially intense time. There are some very powerful alignments later this summer, living in your heart is the only answer to moving through the times ahead. We will not go into the Astrology of it all here as our Channel is not an Astrologer and that would be too intricate for her mind to process.
(Please remember here Dear Ones as we cover the potential intensity ahead that you are the Creators of Your own Reality and have been given the Birthright of having Dominion over your Life and your Reality, that said let us proceed)
We can see & hear intensity in the news and media groups. We can witness the emotional turmoil among the US Citizens as President Obama's Healthcare Plan passed. We can also see the intensity in the recent storms, earthquakes, potential tsunami etc. (Remember Dear Ones that All is in Perfect Divine Order even when you have not understood the Perfection yet). Remember that each Soul has a Blueprint and those who leave in large groups during these horrendous events are their Plan. Have compassion for their families yet, know that all is in Perfection. These Souls are simply going to be experiencing from the other side of the veil now.
Many can also see some of the intensity in the lives of people you know (or very possibly even ourselves), as decisions that need to be made are up-front and center in your world. Many are moving in new directions, whether it refers to one's home or place of residence, as well as the work place.
For those who have denied any of your heart-centered needs, you will feel these needs push themselves into your awareness even stronger than before. All energy that is in need of resolution will find a way to manifest the desired outcome. Any of you who have experienced feeling overwhelmed or overloaded and as if you have reached your limits (physically, emotionally, or mentally), are looking to find a new way. Remember to ask to be shown the way... Then... Watch & Listen for the synchronicities of life to show you the way.
Now is the time to find the courage to follow your hearts lead. Love yourself enough to make the choices needed to free yourself from "Old Energy Patterns of Experience". Now is the time to overcome your "fear of the consequences" whatever they may be. These are times when our heart's choices take the reins.
Mercury will be entering a retrograde phase between April 17-May 11. This will be a period to reveiw, reorganize, redo items you are currently working on. Be very aware if you must sign contracts to read everything carefully before signing. Be aware that misunderstandings are often experienced and clarify that you understand what you are hearing.
Now is a perfect time to organize your thought processes around making these potential changes. Take a sheet of paper make 2 columns, PRO'S & CON'S. This will help you to actually SEE the benefits of making a change, rather than continuing to procrastinate. "Make Note" of the fears you may have, and look closely at the benefits you will receive if you work through your fear. When there is clarity the solutions will align and you will "Shift" your perspectives.
We are integrating great waves of higher frequency and now is a perfect time to Observe Everything in our outer lives as an indicator of our inner vibrational relationship and partnership with Soul. The question of "How am I feeling in this Now Moment" is the Most Profound Key to understanding the vibrational match we have with the thought or feeling of the people, places and work environments in our lives. For those who find themselves feeling less than a perfect match we invite you to spend more time each day in developing your Inner Relationship with Soul.
DEVELOPING A DEEPER CONNECTION WITH SOUL
The most important thing for anyone to do right now is to develop your inner communication with your Soul. Many of you have an open channel with your Soul. For those who have this connection and are not using it currently we encourage you to resume this relationship now more than ever. You will find this ultimately important as we move forward in the days ahead.
Automatic Writing is one of the most powerful forms of communication to open up as a way to communicate with your Soul. This will also expand any connection you may already have with Soul.
We invite you to sit down with a pen/pencil & paper available and then to state your intentions out loud.
Then close your eyes as though you are about to go into a meditation. Take several deep cleansing breaths and just before you begin to go more deeply into the meditative state open your eyes and just allow the pen/pencil to move in whatever manner the energies bring through, if you need to close your eye again just to re-enforce the energies then please do so at any time in the process...
Don't judge what comes out, don't worry about your penmanship, or punctuation... simply allow the words to just flow out. You will be surprised at what a powerful tool Automatic Writing can be! We recommend keeping a notebook, file, or journal of these writings as they will prove to be very "enlightening" as you reflect back on them at a later time.
As you develop the Automatic Writing you will expand the "portal" of communication in your brain. After having used Automatic Writing for a while, soon you will be able to just have regular conversations with Soul on a regular basis without the need for Automatic Writing, and yes even you can do this! At one time we all communicated in this way and will again. This is telepathic communication. (The benefits of Automatic Writing act like "a Chimney Sweep", cleaning out the "proverbial cobwebs" of the mind.)
ABOVE ALL ELSE, TRUST THE PROCESS! AND TRUST YOURSELF!
CREATING GREATER CLARITY IN PERSONAL MASTERY
What we would like to expand on at this time, is a greater understanding of what it means to "Integrate Polarity".
We have discussed achieving the "Neutral Zone" as we wish to call it today. This means not becoming polarized in opposition to anything. Now the "main point" we wish to focus on today is that this is not achieved by IGNORING polarity/duality.
If you will refer back to our messages on "The Power of Conscious Choice" and how by Mastering the Art of the "Observer Self" or "The Silent Witness. What this implies is Consciously Choosing to be "Fully Present in the Now Moment" and not functioning in " Auto Pilot" mode.
By continually choosing to be in "the Now Moment" we are witnessing each moment and being "fully present" which enables such clarity as to be aware of what our choices are in any given moment. We can divert a potential disagreement, or argument with an individual who may not be quite as conscious in that moment, by simply choosing not to go into a reactionary mode of needing to defend one-self, or needing to be right.
You may find yourself not able to understand the other persons point of view in that moment, yet the Key is not to "judge" that persons perceptions. In that moment use whatever method you prefer to transform/transmute the energies of polarity. My choice is simply to stop and breathe into my heart, or when more deeply triggered to use the Violet Flame of Transmutation to burn off any polarity in that moment.
A beautiful practice that I only know in a minimal way is to use the
Hawaiian Healing Practice of "Ho 'O Pono Pono". Which goes like this:
"Thank You, I'm Sorry, Please Forgive Me, I love You".
In my perception this is a perfect way to "neutralize" polarity issues. All anyone ever wants is to feel loved and accepted.
The Beauty of "Ho 'O Pono Pono" is, when you say "Thank You", you are expressing your Gratitude to the individual for being given the opportunity to CHOOSE LOVE and to Master in That Now Moment the Perfection of Neutrality and Balance.
As you say "I'm Sorry", the other person feels acknowledged, while on the other hand you are also saying you are sorry to yourself as well for not having been more fully conscious and present in that Now Moment.
"Please Forgive Me", honors the other person as it honors you, for most often we do not recognize that we are usually unhappy with ourselves when we may have "played out" for another person that their feelings have been overlooked somehow.
Any time we say "I Love You" is a healing to all involved and nourishes the Unity of which we are all a part.
If you find it infinitely impossible in a given situation to move into this space, a position that can neutralize a situation is to simply say. "Let us just agree to disagree on this matter, and I Love You", and move past the need to CONTROL another Being or situation. Realize that any need to control reveal an unconscious level of fear that has not been resolved.
When One is in a state of Balance within the "Neutral Zone", this means you have no need to create attachment cords, control circumstantial outcomes or engage in karmic relationships that energetically feed off of something external to yourself. This can look like the need to control another. This can look like judging another. This will also look like anger, or resentment or any expression of Duality Consciousness.
As we move forward on the Ascension Path it is of upmost importance to become "Self Contained" without the "need" to be attached to another emotionally or energetically. This is very challenging in family and intimate relationships to achieve, yet is a very important part of "Self Mastery". It is not to diminish the Love you have for anyone, it is to achieve freedom from "dependency" so that you may attain your Full Sovereignty as an integrated Divine Human who is whole unto themselves.
And so in last month's message we brought into focus the GREAT IMPORTANCE of LOVING THE SELF. As you refine your ability to Love Yourself you move into greater levels of Self Mastery and Balance enabling you to function in the "Neutral Zone" more, and more.
Spend time each day reflecting on the Truth of Your Being re-enforcing the TRUTH, THAT YOUR ESSENCE IS LOVE. Breathe this Essence of Your Own Light into your Being daily for it Nourishes your body and your Soul Essence and assists in building the Light Body. TRUST with a PASSION THE LOVE THAT YOU ARE, for this will nourish your Mental Body and Emotional Body as you find your Perfect Balance within. RE-MEMBER THAT YOU ARE GOD INDIVIDUALIZED AS YOU!
We invite you to embrace the Self with sincerity in your hearts as you affirm these words as your TRUTH!
And So It Is Beloved Ones, That We Honor You for The Journey You Have Chosen, You Are Loved beyond Measure!
We Are One, Master Dakon, Sariniela, Anjuriel, and the I AM That I AM
Message From Jeshua, April 2010
Through Rev. Michelle Coutant
When you fill yourselves with the vibrations of Love, the miracles abound in your lives, your expression of your Divinity, and every aspect and facet of your Being. When we speak of Love to you, we want you to understand that when we ask you to hold the vibration of Love, it is a commitment you must make in each moment of your Now. In every moment of the Now, you are being asked to make the highest choice, and to express your Self as the highest aspect and expression of your Divine Self, your God Self. You must make choices which raise your vibrations, rather than choices which lower your vibrations. Throughout the day, you will find that you lower and raise your vibrations, in alignment with the thoughts that you think, the words you speak and the actions and deeds you present to humanity. You must make the choice to focus on Love and ask your Self in every Now moment, “Is this thought a thought of love, or is it a thought based upon my ego?” When you examine your thoughts in this way, you will find that you may direct your words, and your actions, to reflect the Love of your Sacred Heart. Within this Love, is the Elixir of Life, the adamantine particles, which are the foundation of all Creation. You have these adamantine particles available to you in the full spectrum of the Metatronic light, which is being showered down upon your beloved Mother Earth. These particles are available to each one of you, to bring forth the creations of the new earth. The more you focus on Love, the more effortlessly your creations will manifest, as you will have an abundant supply of adamantine particles available to you.
There are those of you who believe that you must only be the vibration of Love, as you hold the thought form for your new creation, but this will bring you only limited results, as you must hold the vibration of Love, continually. Hold the vibration of Love in the Now moment of Creation, and blessings reign, miracles abound, and you will have found your way home. You will know without a doubt that you are God, and you are entitled to all the blessings of Creation and you are in complete alignment with the flow of the universe.
The way of a master entails perseverance, dedication, and the knowing that each moment of Love, is the God moment of Creation. You are in the Still Point of Creation, and you may remain in the Still Point of Creation in every moment that you hold, solidly, and steadfastly, the vibration of Love, and Love alone. Remain in the Still Point, and you will find that you are also in your Sacred Heart as the two are One, as you are One with all Creation, and with God, as you are God, you are the All That Is.
We ask you to begin to expand your understanding of your energy field. You are much more than the limited understanding you have been given in the past. You are blessed, beautiful, Divine beings of light. How can your energy field be limited? Your energy field encompasses all Creation, it encompasses past present and future, it encompasses the All That Is, as you are the All That Is. We ask you to meditate upon this expression and feel the expansiveness; feel the limitlessness of who you are. Sit quietly and breathe deeply and allow your awareness to fill your body, to fill your immediate field around your body, and slowly become aware of the expansion of your field, as you become aware that your field encompasses Mother Earth. Breathe and feel the knowingness of this expression. As you become comfortable, breathe and feel your field expand even more, as it extends out to all creation, expanding into the All That Is. You are so much more than the physical body and the expressions of the mental, emotional, and etheric bodies that you strive to bring into harmony. You are God, and your four bodies are God. As you balance and raise your four bodies to the vibrations of the fifth dimension, you come to this knowing of your expansiveness, and once again you have come full circle, through the Law of Circle, that your four bodies are the All That Is, all Creation.
It is so simple Beloveds, yet the human condition is to be driven by the ego. Place the ego, physical, mental, and emotional bodies under the direction of your God Self, shift your focus to Love, and only Love, in the Now moment, and you will have found, once again, that the miracles of Creation are within you, the blessings of life are yours for the asking. You will be Love, and you will be God, for God is Love.
I am with you, in Love, in the Now Moment.
