The Best Star Gazing Binoculars for 2015




Excerpt from space.com

Most people have two eyes. Humans evolved to use them together (not all animals do). People form a continuous, stereoscopic panorama movie of the world within in their minds. With your two eyes tilted upward on a clear night, there's nothing standing between you and the universe. The easiest way to enhance your enjoyment of the night sky is to paint your brain with two channels of stronger starlight with a pair of binoculars. Even if you live in — or near — a large, light-polluted city, you may be surprised at how much astronomical detail you'll see through the right binoculars!
Our editors have looked at the spectrum of current binocular offerings. Thanks to computer-aided design and manufacturing, there have never been more high-quality choices at reasonable prices. Sadly, there's also a bunch of junk out there masquerading as fine stargazing instrumentation. We've selected a few that we think will work for most skywatchers.
There was a lot to consider: magnification versus mass, field of view, prism type, optical quality ("sharpness"), light transmission, age of the user (to match "exit pupil" size, which changes as we grow older), shock resistance, waterproofing and more. 

The best binoculars for you

"Small" astronomy binoculars would probably be considered "medium" for bird watching, sports observation and other terrestrial purposes. This comes about as a consequence of optics (prism type and objective size, mostly). "Large" binoculars are difficult to use for terrestrial applications and have a narrow field of view. They begin to approach telescope quality in magnification, resolution and optical characteristics.

Most of our Editors' Choicesfor stargazing binoculars here are under $300. You can pay more than 10 times that for enormous binocular telescopes used by elite enthusiasts on special mounts! You'll also pay more for ruggedized ("mil spec," or military standard) binoculars, many of which suspend their prisms on shock mounts to keep the optics in precise alignment.

Also, our Editors' Choices use Porro prism optics. Compact binoculars usually employ "roof" prisms, which can be cast more cheaply, but whose quality can vary widely. [There's much more about Porro prisms in our Buyer's Guide.]
We think your needs are best served by reviewing in three categories.
  • Small, highly portable binoculars can be hand-held for viewing ease.
  • Medium binoculars offer higher powers of magnification, but still can be hand-held, if firmly braced.
  • Large binoculars have bigger "objective" lenses but must be mounted on a tripod or counterweighted arm for stability.
Here's a detailed look at our Editor's Choice selections for stargazing binoculars:

Best Small Binoculars 

Editor's Choice: Oberwerk Mariner 8x40 (Cost: $150)

Oberwerk in German means "above work." The brand does indeed perform high-level optical work, perfect for looking at objects above, as well as on the ground or water. Founder Kevin Busarow's Mariner series is not his top of the line, but it benefits greatly from engineering developed for his pricier models. The Oberwerk 8x40’s treat your eyes to an extremely wide field, at very high contrast, with razor-sharp focus; they are superb for observing the broad starscapes of the Milky Way. Just 5.5 inches (14 cm) from front to back and 6.5 inches wide (16.5 cm), the Mariners are compact and rugged enough to be your favorite "grab and go binoculars." But at 37 ounces, they may be more than a small person wants to carry for a long time.


Runner-Up: Celestron Cometron 7x50 (Cost: $30)

Yes, you read that price correctly! These Celestron lightweight, wide-field binoculars bring honest quality at a remarkably low price point. The compromise comes in the optics, particularly the prism's glass type (you might see a little more chromatic aberration around the edges of the moon, and the exit pupil isn't a nice, round circle). Optimized for "almost infinitely distant" celestial objects, these Cometrons won't focus closer than about 30 feet (9.1 meters).  But that's fine for most sports and other outdoor use. If you're gift-buying for multiple young astronomers – or you want an inexpensive second set for yourself – these binoculars could be your answer. Just maybe remind those young folks to be a little careful around water; Celestron claims only that the Cometrons are "water resistant," not waterproof. 


Honorable Mention: Swarovski Habicht 8x30 (Cost: $1,050)

From the legendary Austrian firm of Swarovski Optik, these "bins" are perfect. Really. Very sharp. Very lightweight. Very wide field. Very versatile. And very expensive! Our editors would have picked them if we could have afforded them. 

Honorable Mention: Nikon Aculon 7x50 (Cost: $110) 

Nikon's legendary optical quality and the large, 7mm exit pupil diameter make these appropriate as a gift for younger skywatchers. 

Best Medium Binoculars

Editor's Choice: Celestron SkyMaster 8x56 (Cost: $210)

A solid, chunky-feeling set of quality prisms and lenses makes these binoculars a pleasant, 38oz. handful. A medium wide 5.8 degrees filed of view and large 7mm exit pupil brings you gently into a sweet sky of bright, though perhaps not totally brilliant, stars. Fully dressed in a rubber wetsuit, these SkyMasters are waterproof. Feel free to take them boating or birding on a moist morning. Their optical tubes were blown out with dry nitrogen at the factory, then sealed. So you can expect them not to fog up, at least not from the inside. Celestron's strap-mounting points on the Skymaster 8x56 are recessed, so they don't bother your thumbs, but that location makes them hard to fasten. 


Runner-Up: Oberwerk Ultra 15x70 (Cost: $380)

The most rugged pair we evaluated, these 15x70s are optically outstanding. Seen through the Ultra's exquisitely multi-coated glass, you may find yourself falling in love with the sky all over again. Oberwerk's method of suspending their BAK4 glass Porro prisms offers greater shock-resistance than most competitors’ designs. While more costly than some comparable binoculars, they deliver superior value. Our only complaint is with their mass: At 5.5 lbs., these guys are heavy!  You can hand-hold them for a short while, if you’re lying down. But they are best placed on a tripod, or on a counterweighted arm, unless you like shaky squiggles where your point-source stars are supposed to be. Like most truly big binoculars, the eyepieces focus independently; there’s no center focus wheel. These "binos" are for true astronomers. 


Honorable Mention: Vixen Ascot 10x50 (Cost:$165)

These quirky binoculars present you with an extremely wide field. But they are not crash-worthy – don't drop them in the dark – nor are they waterproof, and the focus knob is not conveniently located. So care is needed if you opt for these Vixen optics. 

Best Large Binoculars

Don't even think about hand-holding this 156-ounce beast! The SkyMaster 25x100 is really a pair of side-by-side 100mm short-tube refractor telescopes. Factor the cost of a sturdy tripod into your purchase decision, if you want to go this big.  The monster Celestron comes with a sturdy support spar for mounting. Its properly multi-coated optics will haul in surprising detail from the sky.  Just make sure your skies are dark; with this much magnification, light pollution can render your images dingy. As with many in the giant and super-giant class of binoculars, the oculars (non-removable eyepieces) focus separately, each rotating through an unusually long 450 degrees.  Getting to critical focus can be challenging, but the view is worth it. You can resolve a bit of detail on face of the new moon (lit by "Earthshine") and pick out cloud bands on Jupiter; tha's pretty astonishing for binoculars. 


Runner-Up: Orion Astronomy 20x80 (Cost: $150)

These big Orions distinguish themselves by price point; they're an excellent value. You could pay 10 times more for the comparably sized Steiners Military Observer 20x80 binoculars! Yes, the Orions are more delicate, a bit less bright and not quite as sharp. But they do offer amazingly high contrast; you'll catch significant detail in galaxies, comets and other "fuzzies." Unusually among such big rigs, the Astronomy 20x80 uses a center focus ring and one "diopter" (rather than independently focusing oculars); if you’re graduating from smaller binoculars, which commonly use that approach, this may be a comfort. These binoculars are almost lightweight enough to hold them by hand. But don't do that, at least not for long periods. And don't drop them. They will go out of alignment if handled roughly. 


Honorable Mention: Barska Cosmos 25x100 (Cost: $230)

They are not pretty, but you're in the dark, right? Built around a tripod-mountable truss tube, these Barskas equilibrate to temperature quickly and give you decent viewing at rational cost. They make for a cheaper version of our Editors' Choice Celestron SkyMasters. 

Honorable Mention: Steiner Observer 20x80 (Cost: $1,500)

Not at all a practical cost choice for a beginning stargazer, but you can dream, can't you? These Steiner binoculars are essentially military optics "plowshared" for peaceful celestial observing. 

Why we chose NOT to review certain types

Image stabilized?

Binoculars with active internal image stabilization are a growing breed. Most use battery-powered gyroscope/accelerometer-driven dynamic optical elements. We have left this type out of our evaluation because they are highly specialized and pricey ($1,250 and up). But if you are considering active stabilization, you can apply the same judgment methods detailed in our Buyer's Guide.

Comes with a camera?

A few binoculars are sold with built-in cameras. That seems like a good idea. But it isn't, at least not for skywatching. Other than Earth's moon, objects in the night sky are stingy with their photons. It takes a lengthy, rock-steady time exposure to collect enough light for a respectable image. By all means, consider these binocular-camera combos for snapping Facebook shots of little Jenny on the soccer field. But stay away from them for astronomy.

Mega monster-sized?

Take your new binoculars out under the night sky on clear nights, and you will fall in love with the universe. You will crave more ancient light from those distant suns. That may translate into a strong desire for bigger stereo-light buckets.

Caution: The next level up is a quantum jump of at least one financial order of magnitude. But if you have the disposable income and frequent access to dark skies, you may want to go REALLY big. Binocular telescopes in this class can feature interchangeable matching eyepieces, individually focusing oculars, more than 30x magnification and sturdy special-purpose tripods. Amateurs using these elite-level stereoscopes have discovered several prominent comets.

Enjoy your universe

If you are new to lens-assisted stargazing, you'll find excellent enhanced views among the binocular choices above. To get in deeper and to understand how we picked the ones we did, jump to our Buyer's Guide: How to Choose Binoculars for Sky Watching.

You have just taken the first step to lighting up your brain with star fire. May the photons be with you. Always. 

Skywatching Events 2015

Once you have your new binoculars, it's time to take them for a spin. This year intrepid stargazers will have plenty of good opportunities to use new gear.

On March 20, for example, the sun will go through a total solar eclipse. You can check out the celestial sight using the right sun-blocking filters for binoculars, but NEVER look at the sun directly, even during a solar eclipse. It's important to find the proper filters in order to observe the rare cosmic show. 

Observers can also take a look at the craggy face of the moon during a lunar eclipse on April 4. Stargazers using binoculars should be able to pick out some details not usually seen by the naked eye when looking at Earth's natural satellite.

Skywatchers should also peek out from behind the binoculars for a chance to see a series of annual meteor showers throughout the year.

The Future of Technology in 2015?




Excerpt from
cnet.com


The year gone by brought us more robots, worries about artificial intelligence, and difficult lessons on space travel. The big question: where's it all taking us?

Every year, we capture a little bit more of the future -- and yet the future insists on staying ever out of reach.
Consider space travel. Humans have been traveling beyond the atmosphere for more than 50 years now -- but aside from a few overnights on the moon four decades ago, we have yet to venture beyond low Earth orbit.
Or robots. They help build our cars and clean our kitchen floors, but no one would mistake a Kuka or a Roomba for the replicants in "Blade Runner." Siri, Cortana and Alexa, meanwhile, are bringing some personality to the gadgets in our pockets and our houses. Still, that's a long way from HAL or that lad David from the movie "A.I. Artificial Intelligence."
Self-driving cars? Still in low gear, and carrying some bureaucratic baggage that prevents them from ditching certain technology of yesteryear, like steering wheels.
And even when these sci-fi things arrive, will we embrace them? A Pew study earlier this year found that Americans are decidedly undecided. Among the poll respondents, 48 percent said they would like to take a ride in a driverless car, but 50 percent would not. And only 3 percent said they would like to own one.
"Despite their general optimism about the long-term impact of technological change," Aaron Smith of the Pew Research Center wrote in the report, "Americans express significant reservations about some of these potentially short-term developments" such as US airspace being opened to personal drones, robot caregivers for the elderly or wearable or implantable computing devices that would feed them information.
Let's take a look at how much of the future we grasped in 2014 and what we could gain in 2015.

Space travel: 'Space flight is hard'

In 2014, earthlings scored an unprecedented achievement in space exploration when the European Space Agency landed a spacecraft on a speeding comet, with the potential to learn more about the origins of life. No, Bruce Willis wasn't aboard. Nobody was. But when the 220-pound Philae lander, carried to its destination by the Rosetta orbiter, touched down on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on November 12, some 300 million miles from Earth, the celebration was well-earned.
A shadow quickly fell on the jubilation, however. Philae could not stick its first landing, bouncing into a darker corner of the comet where its solar panels would not receive enough sunlight to charge the lander's batteries. After two days and just a handful of initial readings sent home, it shut down. For good? Backers have allowed for a ray of hope as the comet passes closer to the sun in 2015. "I think within the team there is no doubt that [Philae] will wake up," lead lander scientist Jean-Pierre Bibring said in December. "And the question is OK, in what shape? My suspicion is we'll be in good shape."
The trip for NASA's New Horizons spacecraft has been much longer: 3 billion miles, all the way to Pluto and the edge of the solar system. Almost nine years after it left Earth, New Horizons in early December came out of hibernation to begin its mission: to explore "a new class of planets we've never seen, in a place we've never been before," said project scientist Hal Weaver. In January, it will begin taking photos and readings of Pluto, and by mid-July, when it swoops closest to Pluto, it will have sent back detailed information about the dwarf planet and its moon, en route to even deeper space.


Also in December, NASA made a first test spaceflight of its Orion capsule on a quick morning jaunt out and back, to just over 3,600 miles above Earth (or approximately 15 times higher than the International Space Station). The distance was trivial compared to those those traveled by Rosetta and New Horizons, and crewed missions won't begin till 2021, but the ambitions are great -- in the 2030s, Orion is expected to carry humans to Mars.
In late March 2015, two humans will head to the ISS to take up residence for a full year, in what would be a record sleepover in orbit. "If a mission to Mars is going to take a three-year round trip," said NASA astronaut Scott Kelly, who will be joined in the effort by Russia's Mikhail Kornienko, "we need to know better how our body and our physiology performs over durations longer than what we've previously on the space station investigated, which is six months."
There were more sobering moments, too, in 2014. In October, Virgin Galactic's sleek, experimental SpaceShipTwo, designed to carry deep-pocketed tourists into space, crashed in the Mojave Desert during a test flight, killing one test pilot and injuring the other. Virgin founder Richard Branson had hoped his vessel would make its first commercial flight by the end of this year or in early 2015, and what comes next remains to be seen. Branson, though, expressed optimism: "Space flight is hard -- but worth it," he said in a blog post shortly after the crash, and in a press conference, he vowed "We'll learn from this, and move forward together." Virgin Galactic could begin testing its next spaceship as soon as early 2015.
The crash of SpaceShipTwo came just a few days after the explosion of an Orbital Sciences rocket lofting an unmanned spacecraft with supplies bound for the International Space Station. And in July, Elon Musk's SpaceX had suffered the loss of one of its Falcon 9 rockets during a test flight. Musk intoned, via Twitter, that "rockets are tricky..."
Still, it was on the whole a good year for SpaceX. In May, it unveiled its first manned spacecraft, the Dragon V2, intended for trips to and from the space station, and in September, it won a $2.6 billion contract from NASA to become one of the first private companies (the other being Boeing) to ferry astronauts to the ISS, beginning as early as 2017. Oh, and SpaceX also has plans to launch microsatellites to establish low-cost Internet service around the globe, saying in November to expect an announcement about that in two to three months -- that is, early in 2015.
One more thing to watch for next year: another launch of the super-secret X-37B space place to do whatever it does during its marathon trips into orbit. The third spaceflight of an X-37B -- a robotic vehicle that, at 29 feet in length, looks like a miniature space shuttle -- ended in October after an astonishing 22 months circling the Earth, conducting "on-orbit experiments."

Self-driving cars: Asleep at what wheel?

Spacecraft aren't the only vehicles capable of autonomous travel -- increasingly, cars are, too. Automakers are toiling toward self-driving cars, and Elon Musk -- whose name comes up again and again when we talk about the near horizon for sci-fi tech -- says we're less than a decade away from capturing that aspect of the future. In October, speaking in his guise as founder of Tesla Motors, Musk said: "Like maybe five or six years from now I think we'll be able to achieve true autonomous driving where you could literally get in the car, go to sleep and wake up at your destination." (He also allowed that we should tack on a few years after that before government regulators give that technology their blessing.)
Prototype, unbound: Google's ride of the future, as it looks today Google
That comment came as Musk unveiled a new autopilot feature -- characterizing it as a sort of super cruise control, rather than actual autonomy -- for Tesla's existing line of electric cars. Every Model S manufactured since late September includes new sensor hardware to enable those autopilot capabilities (such as adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assistance and automated parking), to be followed by an over-the-air software update to enable those features.
Google has long been working on its own robo-cars, and until this year, that meant taking existing models -- a Prius here, a Lexus there -- and buckling on extraneous gear. Then in May, the tech titan took the wraps off a completely new prototype that it had built from scratch. (In December, it showed off the first fully functional prototype.) It looked rather like a cartoon car, but the real news was that there was no steering wheel, gas pedal or brake pedal -- no need for human controls when software and sensors are there to do the work.
Or not so fast. In August, California's Department of Motor Vehicles declared that Google's test vehicles will need those manual controls after all -- for safety's sake. The company agreed to comply with the state's rules, which went into effect in September, when it began testing the cars on private roads in October.
Regardless of who's making your future robo-car, the vehicle is going to have to be not just smart, but actually thoughtful. It's not enough for the car to know how far it is from nearby cars or what the road conditions are. The machine may well have to make no-win decisions, just as human drivers sometimes do in instantaneous, life-and-death emergencies. "The car is calculating a lot of consequences of its actions," Chris Gerdes, an associate professor of mechanical engineering, said at the Web Summit conference in Dublin, Ireland, in November. "Should it hit the person without a helmet? The larger car or the smaller car?"

Robots: Legging it out

So when do the robots finally become our overlords? Probably not in 2015, but there's sure to be more hand-wringing about both the machines and the artificial intelligence that could -- someday -- make them a match for homo sapiens. At the moment, the threat seems more mundane: when do we lose our jobs to a robot?
The inquisitive folks at Pew took that very topic to nearly 1,900 experts, including Vint Cerf, vice president at Google; Web guru Tim Bray; Justin Reich of Harvard University's Berkman Center for Internet & Society; and Jonathan Grudin, principal researcher at Microsoft. According to the resulting report, published in August, the group was almost evenly split -- 48 percent thought it likely that, by 2025, robots and digital agents will have displaced significant numbers of blue- and white-collar workers, perhaps even to the point of breakdowns in the social order, while 52 percent "have faith that human ingenuity will create new jobs, industries, and ways to make a living, just as it has been doing since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution."


Still, for all of the startling skills that robots have acquired so far, they're often not all there yet. Here's some of what we saw from the robot world in 2014:
Teamwork: Researchers at the École Polytechnique Fédérale De Lausanne in May showed off their "Roombots," cog-like robotic balls that can join forces to, say, help a table move across a room or change its height.
A sense of balance: We don't know if Boston Dynamics' humanoid Atlas is ready to trim bonsai trees, but it has learned this much from "The Karate Kid" (the original from the 1980s) -- it can stand on cinder blocks and hold its balance in a crane stance while moving its arms up and down.
Catlike jumps: MIT's cheetah-bot gets higher marks for locomotion. Fed a new algorithm, it can run across a lawn and bound like a cat. And quietly, too. "Our robot can be silent and as efficient as animals. The only things you hear are the feet hitting the ground," MIT's Sangbae Kim, a professor of mechanical engineering, told MIT News. "This is kind of a new paradigm where we're controlling force in a highly dynamic situation. Any legged robot should be able to do this in the future."
Sign language: Toshiba's humanoid Aiko Chihira communicated in Japanese sign language at the CEATEC show in October. Her rudimentary skills, limited for the moment to simple messages such as signed greetings, are expected to blossom by 2020 into areas such as speech synthesis and speech recognition.
Dance skills: Robotic pole dancers? Tobit Software brought a pair, controllable by an Android smartphone, to the Cebit trade show in Germany in March. More lifelike was the animatronic sculpture at a gallery in New York that same month -- but what was up with that witch mask?
Emotional ambition: Eventually, we'll all have humanoid companions -- at least, that's always been one school of thought on our robotic future. One early candidate for that honor could be Pepper, from Softbank and Aldebaran Robotics, which say the 4-foot-tall Pepper is the first robot to read emotions. This emo-bot is expected to go on sale in Japan in February.

Ray guns: Ship shape

Damn the photon torpedoes, and full speed ahead. That could be the motto for the US Navy, which in 2014 deployed a prototype laser weapon -- just one -- aboard a vessel in the Persian Gulf. Through some three months of testing, the device "locked on and destroyed the targets we designated with near-instantaneous lethality," Rear Adm. Matthew L. Klunder, chief of naval research, said in a statement. Those targets were rather modest -- small objects mounted aboard a speeding small boat, a diminutive Scan Eagle unmanned aerial vehicle, and so on -- but the point was made: the laser weapon, operated by a controller like those used for video games, held up well, even in adverse conditions.

Artificial intelligence: Danger, Will Robinson?

What happens when robots and other smart machines can not only do, but also think? Will they appreciate us for all our quirky human high and low points, and learn to live with us? Or do they take a hard look at a species that's run its course and either turn us into natural resources, "Matrix"-style, or rain down destruction?

When the machines take over, will they be packing laser weapons like this one the US Navy just tried out? John F. Williams/US Navy
As we look ahead to the reboot of the "Terminator" film franchise in 2015, we can't help but recall some of the dire thoughts about artificial intelligence from two people high in the tech pantheon, the very busy Musk and the theoretically inclined Stephen Hawking.
Musk himself more than once in 2014 invoked the likes of the "Terminator" movies and the "scary outcomes" that make them such thrilling popcorn fare. Except that he sees a potentially scary reality evolving. In an interview with CNBC in June, he spoke of his investment in AI-minded companies like Vicarious and Deep Mind, saying: "I like to just keep an eye on what's going on with artificial intelligence. I think there is potentially a dangerous outcome."
He has put his anxieties into some particularly colorful phrases. In August, for instance, Musk tweeted that AI is "potentially more dangerous than nukes." And in October, he said this at a symposium at MIT: "With artificial intelligence, we are summoning the demon. ... You know all those stories where there's the guy with the pentagram and the holy water and he's like... yeah, he's sure he can control the demon, [but] it doesn't work out."
Musk has a kindred spirit in Stephen Hawking. The physicist allowed in May that AI could be the "biggest event in human history," and not necessarily in a good way. A month later, he was telling John Oliver, on HBO's "Last Week Tonight," that "artificial intelligence could be a real danger in the not too distant future." How so? "It could design improvements to itself and outsmart us all."
But Google's Eric Schmidt, is having none of that pessimism. At a summit on innovation in December, the executive chairman of the far-thinking tech titan -- which in October teamed up with Oxford University to speed up research on artificial intelligence -- said that while our worries may be natural, "they're also misguided."

On Your Own…..

That's how it feels at first, you against all of them. I had that as a little boy, always being the one left out, suppressed, pestered, beaten up. But don't feel bad for me, because I never was pitiful, even though I thought so about myself....

But there always is the Stairway to Heaven, and as I discovered only yesterday, stairways are mainly meant to get up there, rather than down. Even the alternative word stairwell points in that direction. Also it is easier to run up the stairs, as it is to run down them. Of course you can always jump to get down, but which beaten up little boy would want to?

It is all about Knowing. You may not know everything yet, but ultimately want to Know it All! That can either be achieved by going inside like the Buddha for years on end, but I wasn't a withdrawal addict, although I withdrew quite a lot. I reached beyond the obvious, into books and stuff that made me see a better world. And it doesn't matter who your source is, the Essence of Source is always there. Because basically, that is what discernment is: your uncanny ability to recognize Source! You do it all the time, without as much as giving it a second thought: gauging any input for the amount of Sourceness it contains in your eyes and ears. 

There's only one thing wrong with this picture, and that is that you are not Source yet, or so it seems. You only acknowledge part of what is, as I denied those that pestered and ignored me. But learning is like climbing those stairs, one step at a time at first, and running later. Some, like my daughter Laura, try going down the stairs even at an early age: she figured if she could crawl up the stairs, she might just as easily crawl down the stairs. Mummy cursed herself for having left the door at the top of the stairwell open, but Laura never blamed her: she was absolutely certain that she chose to descend that way, even though tumbling down wasn't exactly what she had in mind.

I did similar things in my time: disregarding mum's panicked warning about a hot oven door, I very much wanted to feel the meaning of the word 'hot'.  Boy, did I feel!  It made me withdraw even then, but like quicksilver squashed together, my consciousness squirted out of the tight squeeze it was in, just like I did in later years. And there it met with more consciousness....

Some of it felt nice and warm, other bits felt cold and heartless, but there was a pattern to be recognized from all this. The more you see consciousness as your own, or like your own at first, the more of it arrives at your doorstep. That's the stair idea, the road meeting up to meet your feet as you walk. It can be barely perceptible at times, like in the gym, where the 2 percent incline in my runner exercise is barely perceptible. But like the chat I posted here yesterday, you start noticing how your consciousness and theirs isn't really all that different. Actually, once you start to notice the commonalities between you and your more or less casual partners, you notice how more and more commonalities arise with every step you take. It's like walking up the spiral staircase in a crystal tower: with every step you can see more of the curved Earth's surface!

But you'll NEVER see all  of Earth, if you don't at some point jump off that tower to fly around and see the other side. I mean, you could crawl down, and leave the tower at the bottom, but let's be honest: if you were going to see the whole planet, would you prefer crawling to flying?

Love your Wings, 

Dré

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.
