ADHD Meds – The Gateway to Addiction

Michael Whitehouse, Staff WriterModern medicine has revolutionized the way we treat disease and illness. Each decadenew breakthroughs are made as we continue to unlock our knowledge of the human body, and how to treat its fragility. But what happens when modern medicine identifies normal human characteristics as disorders, or misdiagnoses an existing condition? The result is startling: Prescribing drugs to individuals who don’t need them, in many cases creating a downward [...]

Excerpt from theguardian.com


Archaeological team say they have set foot in a place untouched by humans for at least 600 years in a site that may be the ‘lost city of the monkey god’

Archaeologists have discovered two lost cities in the deep jungle of Honduras, emerging from the forest with evidence of a pyramid, plazas and artifacts that include the effigy of a half-human, half-jaguar spirit.
The team of specialists in archaeology and other fields, escorted by three British bushwhacking guides and a detail of Honduran special forces, explored on foot a remote valley of La Mosquitia where an aerial survey had found signs of ruins in 2012.
Chris Fisher, the lead US archaeologist on the team, told the Guardian that the expedition – co-coordinated by the film-makers Bill Benenson and Steve Elkins, Honduras and National Geographic (which first reported the story on its site) – had by all appearances set foot in a place that had gone untouched by humans for at least 600 years.
“Even the animals acted as if they’ve never seen people,” Fisher said. “Spider monkeys are all over place, and they’d follow us around and throw food at us and hoot and holler and do their thing.”
“To be treated not as a predator but as another primate in their space was for me the most amazing thing about this whole trip,” he said.
Fisher and the team arrived by helicopter to “groundtruth” the data revealed by surveying technology called Lidar, which projects a grid of infrared beams powerful enough to break through the dense forest canopy.

That data showed a human-created landscape, Fisher said of sister cities not only with houses, plazas and structures, but also features “much like an English garden, with orchards and house gardens, fields of crops, and roads and paths.”
In the rainforest valley, they said they found stone structural foundations of two cities that mirrored people’s thinking of the Maya region, though these were not Mayan people. The area dates between 1000AD and 1400AD, and while very little is known without excavation of the site and surrounding region, Fisher said it was likely that European diseases had at least in part contributed to the culture’s disappearance.
The expedition also found and documented 52 artifacts that Virgilio Paredes, head of Honduras’s national anthropology and history institute, said indicated a civilisation distinct from the Mayans. Those artifacts included a bowl with an intricate carvings and semi-buried stone sculptures, including several that merged human and animal characteristics.
The cache of artifacts – “very beautiful, very fantastic,” in Fisher’s words – may have been a burial offering, he said, noting the effigies of spirit animals such as vultures and serpents.
Fisher said that while an archaeologist would likely not call these cities evidence of a lost civilisation, he would call it evidence of a culture or society. “Is it lost? Well, we don’t know anything about it,” he said.
The exploratory team did not have a permit to excavate and hopes to do so on a future expedition. “That’s the problem with archaeology is it takes a long time to get things done, another decade if we work intensively there, but then we’ll know a little more,” Fisher said.

“This wasn’t like some crazy colonial expedition of the last century,” he added.
Despite the abundance of monkeys, far too little is known of the site still to tie it to the “lost city of the monkey god” that one such expedition claimed to have discovered. In about 1940, the eccentric journalist Theodore Morde set off into the Honduran jungle in search of the legendary “white city” that Spanish conquistadors had heard tales of in the centuries before.
He broke out of the brush months later with hundreds of artifacts and extravagant stories of how ancient people worshipped their simian deity. According to Douglas Preston, the writer National Geographic sent along with its own expedition: “He refused to divulge the location out of fear, he said, that the site would be looted. He later committed suicide and his site – if it existed at all – was never identified.”
Fisher emphasised that archaeologists know extraordinarily little about the region’s ancient societies relative to the Maya civilisation, and that it would take more research and excavation. He said that although some academics might find it distasteful, expeditions financed through private means – in this case the film-makers Benenson and Elkins – would become increasingly commonplace as funding from universities and grants lessened.
Fisher also suggested that the Lidar infrared technology used to find the site would soon be as commonplace as radiocarbon dating: “People just have to get through this ‘gee-whiz’ phase and start thinking about what we can do with it.”
Paredes and Fisher also said that the pristine, densely-wooded site was dangerously close to land being deforested for beef farms that sell to fast-food chains. Global demand has driven Honduras’s beef industry, Fisher said, something that he found worrying.
“I keep thinking of those monkeys looking at me not having seen people before. To lose all this over a burger, it’s a really hard pill to swallow.”

My Higher Self ~ Abundance and Poverty Consciousness

{mainvote}

March 11, 2013

by Healing and Love

MoneyA lot of people have been asking me questions regarding their finances, and more specifically, how to improve them.  I asked my higher self for a response.  Hope you enjoy this response from my higher self.

“There is so much fear and misunderstanding about money that even though you think you need money, you may in essence be blocking its natural flow to you.  This may have been caused by your human ego.  Your human ego may have manipulated you through poverty consciousness for a long time, and for many past lifetimes.

This may be the root of all of your issues and problems regarding money.  This poverty consciousness now has to be released to the light for clearing in this ascension lifetime.  This poverty consciousness may have caused you to be very obsessed with money, which then made you greedy and caused you to hoard money at any cost and through any means.  This is a bad vibration to have as it is based on fear;  fear of not having enough money to survive and have your needs paid for.  The human ego poverty consciousness then caused you to believe that there is not enough money for you to live in a comfortable state causing you worry, stress and anxiety (all lower vibrations).


Remember that what you think about, worry about and what you do will be manifested in your reality.  This in turn may have manifested in homelessness, hunger, and other limitations or lacks in your life regarding money and financial security.   Do not worship money or worry that it will run out or worry that you will not have enough to live.  Money is energy.  Also understand that you cannot take your money with you when you leave this life.  God’s abundance is your birthright and God’s supply has no boundaries of all things that are good and plentiful.  This includes money.

If all of this is so, then why do so many people have financial issues?  Why are so many people suffering financially?  Please understand that in this NOW, you are everything that you have ever created in all past lifetimes, as you are a multidimensional being.  This includes the collective consciousness.  This is why you may be experiencing poverty.  This is why the collective consciousness is suffering collectively financially.  Just look at what is happening in your economies around the world.  It has to come up for release; the fear, the worry, the lack.  So to eliminate your poverty thinking and lack thinking and your poverty consciousness thinking, do not vibrate with poverty consciousness.  How do you do this?

You must watch your feelings, your actions, and your words with respect to money.  Do not worry and do not have feelings and thoughts that are fear based with respect to money.  If you vibrate with poverty consciousness energy, there will be financial problems for you.  You have to raise your vibrations regarding money and poverty consciousness to abundance consciousness.  You do this with gratitude and trust.  God’s intention is for you to have abundance consciousness, not poverty consciousness.  Do not worry that you will starve, and do not worry that you will not make the payment on your mortgage or other things that are due to be paid.  Worry is a very lower dimensional vibration and lowers your consciousness level immensely.  Worrying about money is poverty consciousness and will cause you to have poverty.

Release any subconscious memories which tell you money causes you pain or that it is bad or causes you to worry about money.  You must eliminate poverty consciousness and apply abundance consciousness in your life.

Again, please stop worrying about not having enough money (This cannot be stressed enough), and focus on gratitude for the money that you do have.  This is the key and will change your outcome with respect to money.

Gratitude will bring you more of what you are grateful for into your life. Gratitude is about being thankful for everything that you receive in your life, no matter what form it takes, no matter how large or small.  It is an effective tool for showing appreciation to yourself and to others and for opening up your heart.  When you open up your heart, your consciousness rises.  If you embody gratitude and practice this in your life, it is very healing and then you will be able to tap into the flow of abundance consciousness and receive the loving vibrations of that abundance consciousness from God, namely money.  Then things may change for you financially.

Remember you are a Devine Son / Daughter of God and God does not want his children to be poor and to worry about being taken care of.  Have gratitude for all the supporting and loving people you have in your life; have gratitude for your health and for anything that is happening in your life.  Have gratitude for all the beings around you, the plants, the trees, the animals, the birds, everything that has a consciousness (even that ant crossing the driveway).  All are part of One Consciousness and all are here to learn.  Honor ALL life.  Do not be mad that you do not have enough money or that you can’t pay the bills.  Remember that you are manifesting your thoughts and emotions.  If you think you are poor, the universe will give you more of it.  When you are truly able to feel this gratitude in your heart, then it will enable you to receive love in your heart and thus move past a lot of negative emotions, and money will start to flow for you.

For as long as you are in a state of gratitude, then abundance will pour into your lives as will love.  God and the Universe support you and you are always guided.  No matter how bad things appear to you financially, if you can come into your heart and reach a space of gratitude from your heart, then doors will open up, you will be guided and the way will be clear for you to the next step in your life.  But just like you are practicing gratitude, you must also practice trust.  When you ask for something and if it does not come right away, do not get mad or discouraged.  Trust with all your being in full faith that what you asked for will eventually come.   You have to believe and trust and live your life as if it is already there.

Also, in order to receive, you have to give.  When you give you receive a hundred times fold.  If you have no money to give, give with your heart.  Give your time by volunteering.  It is the intent to give that matters.  Again, money is just energy and comes back to you.  When you give away money, it comes back to you.  Do not hoard it.  Trust that you will receive it back.  You will.  It is a change in attitude that is required to have abundance consciousness.

Every time you spend your money, regardless of what you buy, bless it with gratitude for the service it is providing you. Bless it for the food you receive, the utility bills that pay for your utilities, etc…Then just let it go, knowing that it is just a source of energy which will return to you.  This will not prevent the block of the flow of God’s abundance.  Understand and recognize that money is providing a service that you should accept with appreciation and gratitude. Remember that you are responsible for creating your prosperity.

If you have fear and if you have poverty consciousness, you will be poor.  The Universe will give you what you are feeling, thinking, saying and doing.  Open up to abundance consciousness to change your financial situation and have gratitude.  You will be much happier and much richer, financially and spiritually!”

Win or Loose? Who cares! (is God lazy?)

Recent event have gotten me to see things differently. My idea in writing my second novel is that beings from the far future are somehow responsible for tweaking our reality so it gets better and better. But why does it have to be the far  future? Anybody who can anticipate, is properly equipped to tweak. And that's what I see happening: numerous myth and scams have emerged in the past, even more so since our field of interest became global with the advance of computers. We've got viruses, russian brides, the dotcom hype, spam, lotteries,  all stories of which we have collectively seen enough experiences to consider them real.

But why are some people literally under siege from viruses and hackers, while others like me couldn't care less? Why do I always narrowly escape the negatives, even though I hear about others getting taken to the cleaners? Am I that lucky? I used to think myself unlucky for not getting into the big positives, but untill I started considering myself lucky to escape the negatives, I wasn't really alive. A psychic once asked me this: "When will you stop surviving, and start living?" He was right, and I've taken this long to consciously realize it. The moment you stop worrying about losing, you start winning! Big win scenarios are still a dream of mine, but I never could figure out how I'd beat the odds. How to win the lottery? How to become a big name in writing? I never figured it out.

But today I realized something about me: even though nobody would really call me lazy, I actually am: I love beauty (both experiencing and creating it), but I abhor (grind) work. A perfect programmer in other words!  But since I am God, and God is me, is God lazy? Dare I call him that? Well, I shouldn't, because he created it all! How's that for a lazy guy, riight? But He (or She)  created it all, and so knows how it works. We on the other hand, are behind the veil, trying to figure it out as we go. And I find that the more I find, the closer I get to finding I've really got nothing to lose! And because I no longer have anything to lose, winning becomes unimportant! But then, that might just be the missing ingredient that was needed to create the perfect winner: gives his all, without needing anything in return. Simply  because he knows he's already won. 

And then al of a sudden you find there's always someone somewhere to take up the slack: I botched a PC cleanup the other day, accidentally wiping a lady's mail program from her computer. I did ask her if she used Microsoft Office, while I knew she used Outlook. That Outlook belonged to Office was something I also knew, but at that point was not aware of. When I got home she called, not being able to check her mail. I felt real bad, because she of all people didn't deserve such a setback. I offered to try and fix it remotely through TeamViewer, but being quite afraid of computers, she refused. So we planned on getting me out there live somewhere this week. But just now I got a call from a gentleman she'd called in, and he had a very straightforward solution he wanted to run by me. I figure this just might work, which means I've yet again escaped an unpleasant situation: no need to travel there, and the problem is still fixed. 

So don't worry, there really is someone out to watch your back!

Love your Light, and our Oneness.

New Beginnings

This channel took place on the evening after the Spring Equinox. The energies were powerful and intense. Many people had been experiencing dramatic changes in their lives. Many people had feeling out of balance and energy for a while. Much of that is transitioning. The four transformations of the seasons; spring and fall equinox and summer and winter solstices are always opportunities to create better balance in your lives. During this journey as you stood on the cusp of the equinox you could acknowledge what it was within your past that was ready to be released. You also had a chance to create for the future, to set the energies for the next six months. Through it all the message is about balance.  Step into these energies and let go of anything that is outside of yourself or not your own. Create your intention for the next several months as you manifest greater balance within yourself ~ Shelly


Nama sika; venia benya

I AM the one, I AM the whole  

I greet you beloved family. I feel as if I'm coming into your group, as if I'm lighting in upon a wave of energy that is associated with the spring equinox. Feel that wave of energy as it moves through you. Feel yourself as you are fully present here within your body. Let yourself go within and feel just how alive you really are.

I thank you for coming to share this time with me. I am so very excited about all that is taking place upon the earth. Whenever we get together around either the equinox or the solstices, there is an immense flow of energy that's moving within and around everything upon the earth and in the universe.

This is about balance. Today as you stand on the balance of letting go the last six months, opening to the next six months, consider this a new beginning, and so breathe that within yourselves. Breathe in, feeling all that energy move through you. As you are ready to do so, I invite you to have a sense of shifting your energies so that you may release your physical body and allow your consciousness to move into the space of the magnetic grid. Feel what this place is to you. Feel your higher self as it resides within and around you here within this space.

The magnetic grid has had an immense purpose throughout the many thousands of years upon the earth. It has transformed and become what it is today through the immense work of the millions of you upon the earth, who are shifting your consciousness.

I the Goddess in conjunction with all of those who work with the earth from the other side of the veil have been working from that perspective and everything has been coming together so beautifully over the last 15 to 20 years. So look around you, feel what this place is to you, recognize how you are linked with other people. There is a link to the collective consciousness and is all readily apparent within here.

As you are ready to do so, shift your focus as if going outward so that you may link with the crystalline grid. As you arrive within this space, allow yourself to feel the flow and the energies that are present here within.

You come into this space on a very consistent basis. You come here as a means of balancing your own crystalline energies. This is also a place that you reach out or you reach into whenever you seek to expand in a new and different way. You may find that you also link with the soul plane with other dimensions of awareness, but most especially, you have the crystalline grid. This is something that you move through or you blend with any time that you have a sense of leaving the consciousness of the earth.  It's here, it's available for you. You may utilize it as much as you so choose. Feel the flow of energy as it moves through here.

As you are ready to do so have a sense of shifting your awareness so that you may move your focus into the soul plane. As you arrive within the soul plane, feel how your energy expands. You immediately become aware of your I AM presence. You may have a sense of it coming up from within you; you may have a sense of walking towards it until you reach out and blend. Feel how your divinity fills you up. Feel how you have a sense of going even deeper within yourself as you merge fully with your divinity. This is you. Your I AM presence is that unique soul essence that is only you. It contains the multitude of various experiences that you have had. You as your divinity are immense.

You are a brilliant vibrant energy! Here in the space of the soul plane you have a better access or a better ability to see the higher lighter vibrations that are a part of your consciousness or your presence. The more that you expand upon the earth, the more that your vibration rises to be in alignment with what you are here or who you are here; then the greater that this energy or essence is able to move down and become a part of your existence on the earth. So feel that flow, feel all of that as it moves through you.

Now I the Goddess come within this space. You may feel my energies as I move in and amongst you.  I reach out to embrace every one of you who are here present at this time. Well, that also includes anyone who is reading or listening to this at a different time, because if you are hearing or reading these words, you are present. So allow yourself to expand.  As I merge with you, I am able to amplify all that is you. I reflect back to you and share a vision of who you are.

As you find yourself within this space, look around, have a sense of the ways in which your energy expand. This is the All That Is. This is where you come when you seek to create within your life. This is where you come sometimes in your sleep state. This is here as a means of creating profound changes both in the universe, and upon the earth.

We stand here as the spring equinox is on the end of its energies. This is a time that I would like you to consider what have you had hibernating within you during the past several months. Or perhaps you can think of it as an incubation period. Howsoever it may come across to you, what has this winter been like for you?  As you consider whatever this may be, let yourself in this moment acknowledge, feel, perhaps, what is keeping you from feeling that completion.

I do not wish for you to focus a large amount of energy upon it, but I do believe that if you take a moment to bring it up, look at it, perhaps energetically shake your fist at it, as if to express that you are frustrated, howsoever you picture it in your own mind or in your own way, experience it for yourself and then have sense of letting it go. What I see all of you doing is as if you are suspended in the universe and so you just drop that down away from you. You let it go; you release it, you allow those energies to flow away from you and anything that may have been attached with them. As you do this, have a new perspective of your life. Have a new perspective of perhaps why you've had those experiences. As if you are turning 180° you look in another direction, open up to the new beginnings that are present here for you.

As you look towards the next six months of your life look from this higher perspective, giving you the big picture of things. Look to see all that is here. Are there perhaps experiences from the past that are coming back to revisit you with a greater understanding?  Is that perhaps the time that you manifest in the physical form all that you've been seeking to have? Is now the time that you allow yourself to feel the complete satisfaction that you have been seeking to have? As you allow yourself to look towards the future, as you stand here in this space of immense flow allow yourself to open and see what it is that's available to you.

As you stand in this space, feel what it is to have accomplished whatever it is that you seek to do. Does it make you feel different? Does it satisfy an urge that you've been feeling within yourself? Do you find that this, whatever it might be that you have been seeking to have, is going to finally bring you the satisfaction that you desire?

We have spoken many times about manifesting, about timing, about what you are seeking to have within your life. In every person, that feeling of connection with your divinity gives you that feeling of completion.  No matter what may be going on in your physical reality, that constant flow of source energy coming to you from your divinity gives you that feeling of well-being. It gives you that sense of awareness, that sense of perspective. If you find yourself in chaos perhaps at the workplace, perhaps within your family in whatever the situation may be, breathe down your divinity, breathe down your I AM presence and let that nurture you, filling you up. Feel what that is to you.

Therefore as you consider the new beginnings, let's open up a door to allow a greater amount of potential to come your way. As we arrived within this space, there were a number of teacher and teachers and energies that were here waiting for you. They walk forth and make themselves known to you. There are some extraterrestrials and these energies are different than the light body energies. They too represent light energy but they perhaps come about it from a different perspective. If you feel drawn to one of them, then ask to know how they are going to be working with you.

The light body energies have been merging with me every time that I've come and spoken with you, since they have come into your life. Some of you seek a deeper resonance with them. They are here and present for you. Others of you are seeking out the Angels, Sananda, Mother Mary, Kwan Yin. All the other energies of light, those that are without specific names are all present. So as if you are opening up your consciousness even further open and allow this energy to come closer or to create an alignment with you. As you allow yourself this alignment be open to receive the flow of energy as it moves within and around you. Yes, it is moving through your consciousness, but it is also moving up and down through your I AM presence.

There have been so many influxes of energy over the last several years. There have been the peaks and the valleys when things flow smoothly or when there is a seemingly lack of flow, but it is always here, it is always present and the connections that you make at a time such as this are what allow you to be able to more fully feel the alignment at later times.

I stand here as if before you, speaking with you, looking out. As I do so, I see each one of you as the brilliant light that you are. As I see the flow of the universe all around, it is as if there is a wave of sadness that is moving through.  This is a little bit, catching me off guard so to speak as it may you, but the sense that I am receiving, is that some of you have been feeling this sadness while others have created such an opening through compassion that there is an immense release that is taking place from that collective consciousness.

Ahhh this has been building and building for the last several weeks upon the earth. It's been building up here in the universe and as each one of you stood here and let go of energies from the past as you opened to what you seek for the future; it got to the point that this swell of sadness just peaked and now it is draining off. Feel within yourself, let go any sadness that you may be feeling. As you let this go and allow it all to flow away from you, ask yourself; is this sadness related to you or to something else?

As I look at you I have a very strong sense that many of you, who have been feeling this sadness within and around them, have been feeling it because the collective consciousness has been releasing. What happens in that case is that as the collective is releasing an emotion it aligns with whatever may be happening in your life and either accentuates what maybe there or create something that was not there.  So release this and let it go completely. As you do so, feel how different you are, feel how light, how vibrant your energy is. You may have a sense that you can move with greater agility as if suddenly you are more limber and everything moves through you with greater ease.

There may be those upon the earth who will continue to feel whatever it may be in their lives or they may continue to feel what was released from the consciousness but you may assist them in recognizing that it is not always there's. It may very well be this energy from the collective, so, having released all that, as you come back again with your teacher or with these energies of light, open to see if there is a greater awareness of perception that is available to you.

Are you finding that there is more that you have available to you because you are now this lighter, finer vibration?  Why not ask for more? Why not invite even more to come within your life filling up and creating a more solid expanded consciousness within you?  I have a sense of opening up as if the energies part and as you look out have a sense of looking out over a part of the universe. As you look, let your focus move towards the earth, take in any information or any sense that you have as you look at the earth from this space.

I invite you next, to put your intention towards looking at Ariellis, as you do so; to many it may seem invisible. As you look out at all that is flowing, within and around Ariellis; have a sense of looking even deeper within. Put forth the intention to shift your consciousness in such a way that you are in alignment and then suddenly you see the planet that we call Ariellis. 

Many may have a sense that it is even bigger than the earth; others may have a sense that it is more transparent or invisible. The reason for this is because of the vibration that is within and around the planet itself. When you choose to visit Ariellis and allow your consciousness to spend some time there, you are doing so through your I AM presence and the higher vibrational energies of your consciousness. As you look at Ariellis some of you have actually linked with it and allowed your consciousness to move down as if you were walking upon it. Let your perceptions flow through you, feel how your vibration is shifting.

I see many of you walking upon the earth as you continue to have conversations with whatever guide or teacher has been there with you. As you allow yourself to open to the flow, feel the energies as they move through you. You may ask why would I link with this space, what would be my intention?  Well, as you live your life upon the earth, you are seeking to live your life as the expression of your divinity.

The experience of Ariellis and the alignment that you may receive allows you to more fully integrate this expanded awareness. Anything that makes you feel good is assisting you in your personal growth. Anything that allows you to feel the expansion, to see between the dimensions, to see the higher lighter finer dimensions, allows you your continued spiritual growth. So take in a breath, breathing deeply within yourself, knowing that you are consciously choosing to experience these higher perceptions and awareness.

I invite you to shift your focus once more, that you may all come back within me, All That Is. The alignment that you have formed during this experience will always be there and available to you. Allow your more expanded awareness to flow through you as if you are fine-tuning your own consciousness and we see coming up within the center of the group a hologram that represents the earth and the second one that represents Ariellis.

[Deep breath] As you gather your thoughts, your intention together, once more affirm your presence within your divinity, affirm how good you feel and whatever it is that you are giving birth to for the next weeks or months upon the earth. Let all of that flow down within these holograms, and as if coming from between all of you there is another beam of light that comes within this space, flowing energy and awareness within. This beam of light represents the energy of the universe as it is supporting you.

 It represents the light body energy as it continues to expand upon the earth and all of that moves through these holograms and you have a sense of releasing them. They flow down through the crystalline grid, and as they are moving through the crystalline grid there is a sense of one shifting towards Ariellis and the other shifting towards the Earth.  As this hologram moves down it moves into the core of the earth. There is a blend of energies that links with the crystals and all of that radiates outward. Expanding out it goes through the earth itself and it comes out upon the top of the earth. It comes out through the grass, the trees, the water; it comes into each one of you within your physical form. Feel it as it moves within and around you.

I then invite each one of you to have a sense of shifting back. That you may move back within the soul plane, as you do so, you can feel an even greater perception of your I AM presence. You are more fully integrated than you have ever been before. Let that flow with you; feel as if you are bringing more of your divinity back with you, as you move through the crystalline grid. Here within the crystalline grid there is an adjustment that takes place that helps you to balance these energies so that they may more fully integrate with you upon the earth. As these balanced energies move through the crystalline, they also move down to the magnetic grid.  As they come within the magnetic grid they spread out surrounding the earth.

You have a sense of your higher self linking with and aligning with these energies, and once more let your divinity flow downward until it flows within and around you, the human. You may have a sense of adjusting the energy bodies around you as you feel your energy coming back within. As you feel your consciousness anchoring back within you, let it flow through you. It anchors within your heart and it moves beyond anchoring within your physical body, but it is also creating an alignment with your mental, spiritual emotional and your light body energies.

All of this is here and present for you right now.  As you allow yourself to once more anchor within your physical being, take a moment to acknowledge what it is to be fully content within yourself, to feel what it is to have everything flow around you in a way that is completely supportive of you. Feel all of that move within and around you and it does so with ease. As you are putting forth your new beginning, know that it is integrated; it is within you right now and feel what that is to you. 

As you continue to integrate these energies, I invite you to come back within the room. You may press *7 upon your phone, that will allow you to come back within this room. You may ask me questions if you so choose. As you continue to integrate these energies feel your own expansion, as you are here upon the earth.

I don't know if people are not asking questions or if there's a glitch with our program tonight. We will still continue to flow these energies, even though sometimes the electronics don't keep up with all that we are doing.

Yes, both of our pages went blank, Vilma and I are communicating so please have patience. Please give us a second.

All right, so as she is making some technical, ah, rebooting or whatever it is that they do upon the earth, I am going to just continue my message a little bit more and when people come, get to the point that they can ask questions, then we will shift over to that.

So here you are back upon the earth, you're back within the physical body, you're back where you feel as if you're in that space, perhaps of waking up, perhaps of coming out of a meditation, what so ever it may be.

Hi Goddess...ups... okay, hold down just a minute please, we...we will be right with you, just let me finish this thought okay?...okay

So as you are feeling who you are as a physical person, as you allow yourself to express in the moment, feeling your presence, feeling your awareness, feeling the knowledge of who you are as an individual then open to feel the flow of your divinity and allow it to feel you up.

[Deep breath] All right, so, having finished that thought, I am welcoming this phone call go-ahead beloved.

Question:  Hello, thank you.  I was just wondering what you see as coming up in the fairly near future for people who are unemployed or afraid of what their job is, and also for those people who may be trying to start a new business or just whatever we are all trying to manifest.  What do you see basically coming up. 

Answer:  All right beloved we will look at the broad view and then we'll come back and look at you as the individual.  First of all, the broad view that I have is that I am looking out at the world itself, not only the United States in which you personally live, but looking at the worldview.  There are parts of the world that are more so in the economic front and parts that are coming out more fully.  So, this is the way that the flow of energy is quite often occurring whenever you look at it from a worldwide perspective.  The sense that I have is that everything is already becoming stronger and that there are jobs becoming available.   Because of the number of people out of work right now it may feel to individuals like there is one job to 100 people.  But the truth of the matter is that, as I am looking out at things, the sense I get is that companies are becoming more confident again.  Companies that have cut back to the bare bones are now saying ok we can expand once more.  So over-riding everything else is a deep, deep sense that the worst has occurred, and everything coming forth from here is about going back and expanding and growing, and moving into a new growth.  There has been so much restructuring of organizations that it's had a profound effect worldwide. 

Now coming back to you beloved we have a sense of you doing temporary work.  We have a sense of you doing work that sometimes lasts a week or so and it is not the type of work that you are trained to do.  But it feels more like you go into a project, when you've finished with it, it is done.  It also feels like it might be more like office management or office assistant type of things.  It feels like it is still in the business world, but only because that is what your background has been in.  So it gives you the ability to be able to have that experience and step into that.  So this is what we see happening for you right now.  What we would like to do with you and everybody else who is in this place where that fear comes up - where that energy of worrying about your bills and everything else - just take a deep, deep breath in, breathing it all up within you and consciously take your fears, your bills and everything and WHEW...... and have a sense of releasing it and letting it go out.  As you are release it - as you let it go - then consciously breath down your divinity; breath down that sense of inner knowing; breath down that peace that joy that expansion that you felt for yourself when you were in the all that is.  Then as you go about looking for a new job - as you look for new things - when you come from that space of interconnectedness that is away from fear and lack it  allows you to see things from a new perspective.  If you find yourself going into fear remember to come back and do this breathing and to consciously come back within this space of bringing in your divinity.  All right beloved. 

Thank you very much

You're welcome.  Can you feel the shift that took place in you.  We could feel it.

Yes I did, very much.

Good.  Oh we're sorry we just remembered one last thing that we did want to share with you.  We do have the sense that you have been seeking to do something different and it feels like it's something that has to do with healing, or it's more creative, or it's something that is outside the regiment of business.  Because of the sense of needing to do something right now we feel as if the business stuff takes precedence, but once that gets settled, we feel like you are already setting up the foundations of what you truly want to do - what's your heart's desire.  So that feels like it will come together more fully over the next 6 months.  That is a part of what you are giving birth to today.  We do have the sense for the potential that if you focus only on that, that it will actually expand quite nicely, but we also can appreciate that it feels like it is slow to bring an income so do whatever you feel like you need to do so that you can be comfortable.  Does that resonate with you.

Yes it does, thank you. (Excellent you're welcome)

Question: Oh hello Goddess. (Hello) I feel like so much has been happening to me on an energetic level and I am just wondering if you see my life changing on a more physical level.

Answer:  It feels like you're standing in limbo.  It feels like we see you there, like a runner who is poised to begin a race, as if you are ready to go and you are just frozen in time.  So our sense is that yes the time is here; yes the time is right; yes it is time for these things to come into your physical reality.  So let us work with you for a second and help you to get out of this limbo or this frozen state.  So consciously take a deep breath in breathing down within your lungs and kind of linking down through your heart centre, and as you do feel my presence more fully within you and I and the Angels around you we are just going to shake things up - shift things a little bit - Whew...... and then take another breath in and as you breath out consciously just let it go.  Let go everything that may have been holding you back, any resistance, anything that kept you kind of frozen.  There we go.  And it felt like Poof!  It felt like there - it felt like  - I don't know - Poof is just the word that is coming to us.  But it felt like that created like a little shift and now we actually see you moving.  We actually see movement in you.  We see movement in your energy and movement in your life.  So what you have been waiting for has always been there.  It is just that you weren't in an alignment to receive it and this feels like it is in much more of an alignment to receive it.  Does that resonate with you.

Yes I think I'll be feeling it as the night goes on thank you very much. 

Exactly, and when we work with such a thing, and also the energies of this journey were also amplifying that for you and assisting and bringing it in closer for you.  So allow it to unfold.  We think actually over several days and see what comes your way.

Thank you so much (You're very welcome.)

Question:  Hello, Goddess. (Hello.) Hi. This is my first call with you, and I want to thank you and all the Lightbeings for this truly beautiful and loving and transformative experience. I feel like dancing.

Excellent, Beloved. I'll dance with you!

Alright. Because this is my first call with you, I'm not familiar with Ariellis. I've had a sense of the presence, but I don't know a lot about it, and I was wondering if you could direct me to a site or some information you have about it, so I can learn more.

Answer:  Ariellis is a name that I have given the new earth. (Oh!) That's probably why it seems familiar to you?

Right. I do know about the new earth, I just hadn't heard it called that before.

Well, it was a name that kept flowing through my consciousness, and I personally got a little tired of always saying, "the new earth, the new earth, the new earth." And so that's when Ariellis began to come through, and I tried to push it through Shelly a couple of times and she was holding back. But the sense that I get is that you will actually hear, begin to hear different people calling it different things, and there's no right or wrong. It's about the energy behind it. So if you hear it called something else, then reach out to feel the energy behind it, and see if you don't resonate with that. But Ariellis is the new earth, and of course you have lots of places you can find out about that on the internet, but also we've worked with it consistently for the last three or four channelings, so if you'll go back to my channelings in the website you can read more about them there also.

Thank you so much. That's lovely. Thank you.

You're very welcome.

Question:  Hi, Goddess. (Hello.) This is Amanda, and I was wondering if you had any information that you'd like me to know right now.

Answer:  Okay, Amanda. Take a deep breath in and allow me to come more so within your presence and let me see what I see around you. Oh, Amanda, it is like there is this big, huge flower! I don't know, we just keep seeing, like, a sunflower behind you, and it's radiating, like, a golden light. And we have a sense that what this is representing is the energy of, I don't know, I'm kind of stuck here on that golden, on that sunflower thing. But we know that that's not the thing, it just is representing a flowering and perhaps it has to do with the equinox and you know the flowers that are going to be coming out as spring emerges. But the energy behind that is that you have recently stepped into, or acknowledged, a greater amount of your divinity. And as a result of that, it feels as if there's suddenly all these mystical or kind of magical type energies that are taking place within and around you. With a sense of seeing in you an awakening to seeing auras, an awakening to hearing things with your inner sight, or seeing things with your inner sight, and it's as if all of your senses have awakened, and you just kind of feel that flow or that flood of that as it's going through you. This is what comes to us first and foremost, and it feels that as a result of these things, everything else in life is shifting. It feels like work, relationships, your homeplace, all these other things are also shifting in this new alignment. Does that resonate with you?

It does, yeah. I'm starting massage school tomorrow. I'm really excited.

Excellent.

Unsure about where I am with relationships with people.

Mm-hmm. Well, we feel that there is a lot that you've been integrating, and you have a little bit been . . . We don't want to use the work "keeping to yourself," but it feels as if you've felt either different from the people around you, or just different from your own. self. It's like when you go inside and you want to connect, it's like, "who am I anymore?" has been a little bit of the energies that we feel. So as you more fully accept or allow this expansion that's taking place, you've been asking for it, and it's here, it's here now. The sense that we get is that it's just going to amplify everything else around you. We think this massage school is a very good move for you. We think that you are actually going to be doing a lot of energy work in addition to the massage work, and so be open and aware of how much. It's as if as you learn about the massage, it's as if that opens up doors and allows for all of these other energies to also come down within you, so the sense that we get is that it's going to impact you in many different ways.

Mm-hmm. Do you see me working in massage soon? I'm just wondering if you see a new employment for me.

It feels . . . we see a lot of the school around you, and beyond that it's hard to say. We do have this sense that ultimately we see you getting work with this. We see you working for an organization as opposed to working for yourself, and that that gives you a stepping stone in that eventually you go out and you work for yourself. But, yes, we absolutely see you getting employment with this, and but it feels like a lot of schooling right now. It doesn't feel as if the employment is right now, unless it's . . . it just feels like school. It doesn't feel like the employment is right now.

Okay. That makes sense. Thank you.

Okay. You're welcome, Beloved.

Thank you.

Mm-hmm.

We'll take another one Vilma.

Question:  Hello Goddess!  (Hello) A couple weeks ago my sister had suggested to my mum and I that we get into buying properties, fixing them up, then putting them back on the market.  Basically I'm wondering if this is a short sited impulse or if it's divine guidance; perhaps a response to our prayers.

Answer:  Could you please tell us where you are located so we can get a better feel for your area? 

I'm in Toronto.

The sense we get of the housing market is that it's been flat for a while but it feels like there is an influx of people being able to purchase homes.  This is like that very first question about the economy and people getting jobs.  It's like everything leads to the next.  People are getting work therefore more people are looking to buy homes. Therefore it looks like there will be a greater demand for people to purchase homes. Overriding everything the housing market in Toronto is opening up.  As far as you and your mother purchasing home, remodeling them and turning them around; it feels like an opportunity and you could make money that way.  But there is heaviness around it.  What that says to us is that it's a potential and opportunity, but it doesn't feel light and like it would move quickly. Perhaps you would turn them around quickly, but they would perhaps not sell as quickly as you would like them to.  So even with the increase in the housing market, we would say to you take a little more time and look at the numbers and houses in particular that you are considering.  It feels like some will do very well and others will sit on the market a long time.  We sense this has a lot of ambivalent energies around it and it needs some more investigation.  Does that resonate with you?

Yes, it certainly does.  We are giving ourselves until 2013 to save up money and purchase our first place.

Ohhh, 2013 you said?

Yeah, it's not something we are going to do right now.  My sister has her own place and she is going to move back home and rent out her home to save some money.  We can save money as well.  So we hope by 2013 we will hopefully make our first purchase. We intend to start out with condo's rather than homes. 

Absolutely when you look at a 5 year plan we absolutely see it has a lot of energy and potential around you.  We thought you were ready to purchase right now and get into it right now.  We think you'll be doing it before 2013; what year is this again?  Oh, 2010.  That's three years, not five years.  I always get disoriented when I get earthbound time. (Chuckling)  Well then that makes 2013 a little more doable.  We were going to say two to three years were what we felt would be a time frame you would be planning on this. We would say to you; when you get that sense ‘is this divine guidance or something else'.  If you get a sense that it is divine guidance then oftentimes, yes it is.  The next thing we would say to you is then use your discernment and decision making as a human to really look at it more closely and get a better feel for what that might be for you.  That's our sense with this.  This is exactly what you are doing.  So give it some time and see how it unfolds. We have a sense it has a very high potential of doing well for you. 

Okay and one more quick thing about me personally.  I intend to offer my services in a healing realm.  I'm doing it very slowly ....

Excuse me! I hate to interrupt you but I thought you were asking for clarity of the same question.  I can't answer two questions because others are waiting to ask their questions. 

That's fine, thank you, thank you very much.

You're welcome.

Question: Hello Goddess?  Thank you for our lovely journey.  When you spoke about sadness tonight, I was one of the one's who for the past two weeks has felt very sad.  But it's because my 14 year old cat has been severely injured by another cat, in his eye and I thought he was dying.  My question for you would be, would you mind sending my cat some healing energy and ask his spirit if it is time for him to transcend?

Answer: Okay, can you tell us your cat's name?

Well, we call him Kitty. (laughter)

A 14 year old Kitty!!

He was sent to me as a special gift from Isis to hold her energy for me.

We could feel that his energy was very powerful and strong especially when we linked with the name Kitty.  We absolutely can see the energy of Isis that is still within him and that link to you.  It feels as if he has done what he needed to do, he actually completed it a couple of years ago.  You have stepped into or manifested whatever it was that you were seeking to have from her, whatever that flow or that energy was.  It feels as if that's absolutely working and going well for you. 

Is it his time to transition?  There's a part of him that is very tired and feels that it is time for him to go, but the stronger sense to us is that it's not time,  he's going to be staying here with you.

Okay, that's very good news! I've been very, very upset about that.  Could you help heal him dear Goddess?

I have been flowing energy to him as we spoke.  He still has that connection to Isis and feel her energies have been a bit stronger around this. When something like this happens in such a manner it's to bring the focus to you about connecting inwardly and connecting with your divinity and allowing that to flow more freely through you.  Recognize that the job he came in for is done so everything is just pure love of you and the situation that is keeping him here.  He gives us that sense of; you know those cartoons or those pictures of the cat on the big cushion with all the elegant trimmings? He feels like that, like the king cat.  He lays around and gets all sorts of attention reaped upon him.  (OHHh yes!) So he likes that and that's what's keeping him there.

Okay so I should just continue on with him and he will probably slowly heal. 

Yes.  It feels like there's a potential he might lose the vision in that one eye, but it doesn't feel as if he'll transition. 

Alright, well that is a big weight off my mind.  I've been losing sleep over it! I've now released the energy of sadness.

Excellent!  Excellent.

Alright, thank you very much.

You are welcome.

Alright I guess Vilma we'll take one more.  Shelly seems to have lots of energy tonight. Maybe it's that equinox energy she was talking about earlier. 

Question: I've been feeling really stuck and frustrated and I'm hoping that you can give me some clarity.  I've been looking for work in the past year but in that time I've come to feel that my heart is really telling me I don't want a job I want to stay home and raise my son and have another child even.  I feel somehow that's it's possible for me to even get an income without a job per se, but I've been aligning and visualizing, envisioning and nothing is moving.  I'm just feeling at a loss.  I was wondering if you could shed any light on what is going is going on and if I am even hearing the right inkling.

Answer:  We feel a couple of different things as you've been speaking of this. Absolutely people have the ability to create an income as if out of thin air.  So we do see that that is absolutely an opportunity.  It feels as if it's you aligning with a higher vibration of yourself to set this up and make this happen.  Then as we look at the situation around you like your more earthbound physical reality and it feels like that is not in alignment to accept something like that.  Even though you are consciously asking for it, you are consciously wanting to bring it in, you are consciously saying this is what I want in my life; it feels as if there is still some discordance between that and your everyday life.  That's why you feel as if things are in limbo or things are not happening for you.  Let us see if we can't just blend with you for a moment.  Take a deep breath in and feel my energies as I come within you, I move within and I go within your heart center.  As I do that, have a sense of consciously taking another yet another breath in.  Then as you breathe out, we're going to send out a ball of light.... whew... it goes out and expands from your heart in every direction.  It was like there was a shell around you or something that was holding in your energies.  It blew that apart and opened it up and like a vacuum that has been released, we feel this flow of energy like a wind that is blowing through your hair. We have a sense of seeing you now standing in a flow.  Whereas before you were separated and isolated, you are now connected in the flow. 

In saying that, as we look around you, is there something you do on the computer? It feels as if it's something you're doing, transcribing or writing.  There is something we see you doing on the computer for other people and getting paid to do it.  Not sure if that means anything to you. 

I have been doing some transcription just as a favor.  I have been doing some web design, but that doesn't feel in alignment anymore. 

Okay, well perhaps it's the websites you were looking at. We think what we were picking up on was the transcription. It feels like there's more of that or something different, but similar to that that might be available to you.  That is the first thing that comes to our awareness.  Then we had a sense of looking out from you or looking at the area around you to see if there was a different type of work or income for you.  Haven't we had a sense of you moving before? We have a sense of you possibly moving. 

Yes, there's been a sense but I haven't found the opportunity or gotten the invitation as yet.  But there has been a sense of something. 

We still have that sense of moving. The feeling I get for you is that it's important to bring down into your everyday reality that intention to live and work in such a way.  Let your focus be upon having it accomplished or something in your life that lets you feel good and in alignment and gives you that sense of your divinity.  We think that part of the reason that discrepancy was created was because your focus began to be on what was not happening and what had not worked for you, as opposed to what you wanted.  It's very hard as humans not to go into that mode.  I understand it completely and it's kind of natural that people go that route.  But it's important when you consider your vibration, when you consider manifesting, when you consider alignment that you make sure you are open to receive, that actually the flow of energy and light and that you consciously let your focus every day be upon anything and everything that feels good to you.  Alright beloved?

Thank you so much Goddess. 

You're welcome.  The reason we don't have any more specific information to give to you is because it feels like a nebulous energy out in the ethers.  So take the time to consider what do you like to do, what is fulfilling to you, what allows you to have the flexibility during the day for your son yet also be working at other times.  Maybe come up with some new ideas or new potentials.  It feels as if everything that we've been feeling has that old energy connected to it.  Whew, alright, well considering that I've started coughing, it's time to bring this evening to a close!  Beloved I see you in the flow and I see you in the light. 

Thank you.

You're welcome.

All right, so with that I thank all of you for coming and sharing this time with me. [Deep breath]  Once more breathe in the energies of the equinox, feel yourself creating your new beginning, whatever it may be in your life. Remember to breathe in and feel the presence of your divinity and let that be the core aspect of your day. Let every day begin having the center and end with that feeling or that knowledge that you are aligned and fully integrated with your divinity.

I am ever with you and within.

Challenge your fear of success

Own Your Power

Once again the tabloid media has taken to plastering their covers with a celebrity who, at the height of her career, has been taken down by a personal tragedy in the form of betrayal by her husband. My heart goes out to Sandra Bullock as she navigates the complicated waters of a broken marriage while having her personal life splayed out for all to see. I can only imagine the hell she's living in.


Each time I see a public person knocked off the proverbial pedestal either by his or her own undoing or by someone else, I see the writing on the collective subconscious wall: "You better not get too big for your britches or we'll take you down." While it seems some need to come down in order to stop hurting people, others become the poster child for our collective fear of success.

As I watched Sandra Bullock's public embarrassment after winning the Oscar, I thought, "Great, here's another chance to reinforce the belief that it's not safe to step into the light and own our gifts." It makes me crazy because it doesn't serve anyone. Each of us has a boogieman (or woman) who keeps us in line by reminding us to tone down our brightness, to take one step back and stay with the pack, or to keep our flaws handy in case we need to pull one out to prove that we're a card-carrying member of the "fit in" club.

For some, the voice of the boogieman is loud, constant, and demanding in its request to stay small enough to keep others comfortable. For others - most people actually - the voice is subtle and sneaky, and equally pervasive and debilitating. We end up playing by its rules to keep ourselves safe and, as a result, miss out on fully living our lives. You get close to want you really want, for example, and sabotage your efforts because it feels too risky. You find an excuse to avoid making the phone call that just might land you a great job. You eat one more candy bar to stay comfortably numb so you don't have to confront the brazen friend who made fun of your latest creative idea. Or, you tow the line with family members by putting yourself down and leveling the playing field so you don't ignite the sarcastic comments or guilt-inducing statements that warn: "Don't you dare leave the tribe by being more successful than us."

If I were a betting woman, I'd put money on the fact that Sandra Bullock probably started worrying about a bomb dropping on her life when the first award nomination was announced. You know the drill. Things are going a little too well and immediately you start waiting for the next shoe to drop. You pull back, shrink inward, and maybe even start slipping up just enough to steer clear of being too successful.

Here's the thing: Eventually the other shoe will drop. That's the way life works here on planet earth. In a world of duality there will always be an eventual downside to every up. Someone you love will get sick right after you receive an offer to start a great new business. A friend might betray you just before your wedding day. Or, you'll be pulled from a promotion because someone more qualified showed up at the last minute.

The real issue is what you do with what happens, not the drama around the details. After all, our safety net (and the ability to maintain our power) comes from the investment we make in our own healing journey. How will you grow from the downside? What character traits will you develop? What old wounds will you finally face and heal? The answers to these questions (and the work you do to address them) are the insurance you purchase with your hard work. This insurance gives you the courage to express your greatness in spite of what happens or what others think.

So this week, I challenge you to do something to support humanity's goodness instead of the drama. First, send love to Sandra Bullock and anyone else who's struggling with the pain of an unexpected blow. I don't know about you, but when I saw The Blind Side, both Bullock, and the woman she portrayed, left me inspired to be an even better human being. That's what full-on greatness does.

Next, challenge the legacy of smallness that hurts us all by keeping your money away from the magazine issues that profit from someone's pain. Then, start owning your power. Toot your own horn. Speak confidently and skillfully about your accomplishments at your next job interview. Set a firm boundary the next time someone tries to keep you in line with his or her own fear and insecurity. Be brave, bold, and willing to risk getting knocked around a bit (metaphorically speaking) to stay true to your strengths and talents. I don't know about you, but I'm willing to piss a few people off or to weather a few storms to insure that I'm honoring my soul. I may go out with a few chipped teeth, but you can be sure I'll go out smiling ☺.

Take Action Challenge

This week, watch for your tendency to shy away from expressing your full power. Notice what you do to level the playing field with others. What do you say? How do you act? What do you end up thinking about yourself? If you're so inclined, share what you discover with other members of our community on our Facebook page here.

This week's video was posted on my facebook page by Jamie. It's a sweet example of how tuned in our pets are. You can find it here. Thanks, Jamie!

Out of the comfort zone?

Today I was off, because I'd worked three days worth on monday and tuesday. The maintenance crew of a hospital had shut down an air conditioner, without knowing their actions would fry a RAID5 system in an IT room serviced by that very air conditioner. There was a backup, but access to it was too slow for the doctors' tastes. They never were very 'patient', that's why they're doctors. Since I'd written the original jukebox software, I was called in to write a restore program to bring back to life the 4.5 Terabytes (4.947.802.324.992 bytes) of medical images.  It worked, so today was my day.....

Woke up at 7:30AM, filled to the brim with energy. Did the laundry, and moorelife.nl, and then sat down to write, with the media player on Ayreon. I just love that music. And then it occurred to me that we lightworkers have it easy: we see connections instead of boundaries and obstacles, which kinda gives us the edge. Because let's be serious: if you voluntarily limit yourself to a subset of the whole, how can you hope to defeat that very same Whole? By divide and conquer maybe, but no matter how tough your boundaries are, there's always someone or something able to pass them. This was most eloquently described by a Dutch band called the 'Small Orchestra': They sang about the Berlin Wall when it was still very much a reality, except for the birds: they don't care about a bunch of concrete that stops ordinary men and women! They just fly from East to West whenever they feel like it.

Thus, we can relax, and just go about our business: not only does not worrying give you much more energy left over to work on stuff that really does make a difference, but it focusses you on the tasks at hand in a far more effective way.  Today's writing session thus proved to be highly effective, leaving me a manuscript that for the moment covers no less than 146 pages, with ideas to easily reach 300 pages, which is my minimum target.

But an observation has crept into my awareness: I'm no sensation writer! My stories don't revolve around all out drama and disaster. Just can't do that, because it takes me out of my comfort zone. Some writers are great at that, Stephen King comes to mind. And though I at least enjoyed him immensely in the past, it just isn't my cup of tea anymore. Mine is a world of Innuendo, just like the Queen album that currently playing on my media player quite by accident. I'm a guy of synchronicities, wanting to show that deep and intimate interconnectedness of the world around us. 

Heck, even love between my two main characters doesn't exceed PG13! Not that I wouldn't love to, but it is not within my comfort zone to write about that stuff to untold millions, without first having created that same comfort zone around it. And that zone is hard to capture in the written word. Maybe I'll succeed, who knows. But for now, I'm just trying to finish this novel.

Laura told me something interesting the other day: That it is not all that difficult to become Holland's most famous scifi / fantasy writer: she went looking for Dutch writers in this genre, and came up blank! Well, that at least lowers the bar. Unless of course I crank it way up there again by wanting to rub feet with Asimov and Heinlein....

Love your Light,
