10 Things to Learn from Japan

I don't know who wrote this but it is all over the internet....well said:)
Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated.

Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture.

The incredible architects, for instance. Buildings swayed but didn't fall.

People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could get something.

No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads. Just understanding.

Fifty workers stayed back to pump sea water in the N-reactors. How will they ever be repaid.

Restaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The strong cared for the weak.

The old and the children, everyone knew exactly what to do. And they did just that.

They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No silly reporters. Only calm reportage.

When the power went off in a store, people put things back on the shelves and left quietly.

The Earth Changes are Saving Us

With the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami happening so close after the Christchurch quake, a lot of people have been quick to take this as proof that Mother Earth is not happy. Another way to look at it is, she is a Living Being, a Living Planet that goes through her cycles just like we humans do. She has been here for billions of years, long before we came, and will be here long after. It is typical of humans to ignore natural cycles, and it is especially historically typical to disregard and dishonour feminine cycles. Oh yes, Earth is not only a Living Being, she is a Feminine Being.  Have you ever heard her being called Father Earth? I don't think so.

As a Feminine Being, Mother Earth goes through very specific cycles - some we see regularly in our Summer, Autumn/Fall, Winter and Spring. Others we only get to see every 5000 or 126000 years, and how lucky are we, we get to be here for one of those Great Cycle Transitions! Yep, we are receiving the gift of being on Mother Earth while she is moving from one transitional stage to another as one cycle ends and a new world is born. As with any change or birth, it doesn't happen without ...ummmm...change!!! Enter...the Earth Changes phase. And guess what, just like any woman, this comes with labour, and contractions, and waters breaking! I don't know about you, but I don't think a woman in labour is going to appreciate being told to 'calm down'! I don't think a woman in labour is going to appreciate us saying "Could you please stop shaking and screaming, I'm trying to get some sleep over here!"  Because guess what, this isn't about you or me! This is about a planet going through an amazing rebirth process, and by some amazing synchronicity there happen to be billions of humans on her for the first time ever, and so by default WE GET TO BE REBIRTHED WITH HER!!! Yes Humanity are going to benefit from this amazing event.  Further if Mother Earth wasn't going through these changes right now, we would not have a planet to live on much longer. We have been terrible tenants and I'm surprised she didn't evict us a long time ago. But she didn't because hard as it may be to believe, she loves us. She kept taking care of us just like any Mother does, even if we have treated her quite abysmally. These Earth Changes are allowing her to rebirth herself, and revive herself. And guess what? The very Earth Changes that we feared are going to be the end of us, are going to be the very events that we will look back on and realise: those Changes SAVED us. They saved the Earth, they saved us from continuing to destroy her, they saved us from destroying ourselves.

As Earth aligns with the Galactic Equator and Centre she is turning this way and that accessing as much high vibrational Light as possible. Will this set off more earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunami's and cyclones? There's no easy way to say this but yes. However she isn't doing this to harm us or hurt us, it is part of the process. It is rebalancing and cleansing her. It is providing us with essentially a new planet on which to live (and I hope we treat Earth version 5.0 a lot better than previous versions!). It's not her fault we happen to have houses and buildings that are falling down because of all the action. Gosh this sounds so heartless in black and white, but it is not meant to be. It is just a request to look at it from another perspective - that of Mother Earth, and that of our future survival vs our present and old needs.

As turbulent and traumatic as events appear, ultimately we are going to be a better humanity out the other side. But not if we spend the whole labour process crying about how WE are being affected, crying about what WE are losing. We have to pull ourselves together and let go of the old world. The old world is going. No electricity? Well guess what we have a big SUN in the sky that has been trying to get our attention for years. It's called free Solar Power. Look up here, somebody anybody, helloo?? No oil? Free energy. No money? Free energy. Need something? We will remember that Mother Earth truly has all we need, and we will remember our ability to create all we need in a good way without harming her.

To all those who are mourning the loss of life, please know that as souls we continue to live. Please know that all souls leaving now pre-contracted to do so, and are helping us through this process from a higher realm. It is so hard to live physically without a loved one once they have passed I know, they aren't there to hug or to call or to share your daily joys and struggles. But they are with us. They are living on another dimension. They are watching over us. They are helping us. You can talk to them. And if you close your eyes and allow it, you can feel them and hear them, if not through words then with your heart. We are ALL in this together - those who have passed, those who will yet choose to pass, and those of us choosing to stay.  When my mum passed she told us not to hold onto her with our grief 'because then I won't get my wings and I won't be able to fly and do what I have to do". So too, we have to honour those who are choosing to pass on during these Changes. They have to get their wings and they have to fly, because they have so much to do to help us through this. Honour their lives and their passing by seeing them free, flying with their wings, doing their soul's next purpose.

March 9 2011 - Oct 28 2011 marks the final wave of the Mayan Calendar. Think final wave of a woman's contractions. Yes it is going to be turbulent, but within that turbulence there will be miracles, there will be joy, there will be tears, there will be beauty. There will be the sounds of a life falling away that will no longer be, and the sounds of a new life emerging that we cannot yet even imagine.

March 2011 Monthly Visions: Sunspots, Solar Flares and Feeling Wired

Having trouble sleeping? Do you constantly feel like you’ve had ten cups of coffee and are running on adrenalin lately? Is your tiredness level set to Extreme Exhaustion but nothing is helping because even while you try to rest, the blood and heart are pumping away at a furious rate?  Welcome to the Sunspot/Solar Flare stage of our process!
            Sunspots are scientifically explained as dark spots that appear and disappear on the Sun’s surface, caused by intense magnetic activity.  According to science, a sunspot by itself has a relatively small affect on the Earth (yet still does have AN affect). When lots of sunspots appear in close proximity to each other it tends to be a pretty good sign that a Solar Flare (solar explosion or release of energy) will happen from that area, which has a relatively big affect on our Earth. 
On an energetic level I see the sunspots as mini-eruptions or releases of the sun’s energy while Solar Flares are mega-eruptions. I tend to receive downloads of information first, and then later receive scientific or other ‘real life’ confirmation, so it’s always exciting to read research that matches exactly how I am being shown things. The way I see Solar Flares, and what actually happens, is that they slam into our Earth’s magnetosphere triggering geo-magnetic storms, which play havoc with our internet, navigation systems, computers, radio waves, television and weather. Yes we have had Solar Flares before on our planet, but we’ve never had the MEGA Solar Flares we are due to experience while we’ve had SO much technology running the planet. As my sister Jel pointed out recently “People have been scared that our future is based on a world where machines rule the planet, but look around, the machines are running the planet now!!” A big solar flare cycle in 1913 is going to have an entirely different affect on us than a big solar flare cycle in 2011-13. Contrary to the fears that this will signify the end of us, this has potential to be a very positive thing, albeit temporarily chaos-creating.
We are being disconnected from our artificial sources of power, which will force us to connect with authentic and natural sources of power. Short term challenge = long term benefit for all. This doesn’t mean we’ll all go back to the horse and cart and have to give up our dependency on Facebook. Rather we will be awakened to the reality of free, natural energy solutions so that we no longer drill the Earth for her oil. People will no longer have to work to spend half their pay cheque on electricity bills and fuel. There ARE free, natural energy alternatives, and it seems more and more likely that one of the reasons the existence of other-planetary life is constantly denied by official military and government sources is that once we finally do make collective conscious contact with these intelligent highly evolved beings we will realise the degree to which we have been denied so much that is easily available to us! The official Denial stance has nothing to do with thinking contactees are crazy nor is it a matter of national security. It has everything to do with the power and money held by a very small group of people, that they will no longer have once the people are free and empowered. The rules of the game are changing right before our eyes because another affect of this major eletro-magnetic action is that it is waking us all up big time. Pretty soon we are not going to have to wait for official disclosure. The truth will be revealed to us because we collectively ask for it. I don’t know exactly how that will play out, but that is the exact sentence I was given to include here for you all today!
Something that scientists don’t really mention (to my knowledge, and I would love to find out if they do) is that as we are made up of electro-magnetic energy all this sunspot and solar flare activity also hits and ‘electrifies’ our energy bodies, affecting our vibration, mental focus, clarity, nervous system and emotions. I also think the sunspots have a greater than we realise affect, acting perhaps more as little ‘pushes’ rather than big ‘slams’. Yet if you have day after day after day of little pushes, it sure starts to feel like you’re being slammed, solar flare or not, and this is what we are experiencing daily in 2011.  
We have just emerged (2008-2010) from a Solar Minimum period. In 2009 for example there were 260 sunspot free days. Even for a Solar Minimum period, this was very strange and scientists were starting to wonder what was happening with the Sun. Some started predicting (in line with ancient predictions) that we were witnessing the calm before the storm, and that such an intense period of quiet would be followed by a very intense period of activity. Cut to 2011 and hello activity!  Do you know how many sunspot free days our Sun has had this year? One. Throw in monthly mega Solar Flares in January and February and a couple already this month (on March 1 and March 7) and you have a planet and a humanity that feels akin to sticking your hand in an electric socket for a few months, with only a one day reprieve in all that time before the hand went in again for another round!
So this first week of March for many people has been INTENSE not only because of the solar flares but because our bodies are still barely recovering from the ones in January and February! It’s a bit hard to rest in between Flares when you have daily sunspot activity continuing to prod you right? Ah, no rest for the unawakened, or that which is unawakened within us.  
So here we come to the point – that which is unawakened within us is being prodded, pushed and slammed awake. The specific theme that is going on right now is one of doors within us collapsing, doors within us opening, and entire rooms expanding to Let the Light In!
Imagine that our energy field is made up of hundreds of little rooms. We have the Power room, the Confidence room, the Freedom room, the Abundance room, the Support room and so on. Imagine we have a room for every possible emotion, quality and energy you can think of, and rooms for things you haven’t even dreamed of.  We ALL have ALL available rooms within us, that’s not a problem. The ‘problem’ is that we all have very interesting beliefs around these rooms, determining which are shut, which are open, and which can only be open if certain others are shut and vice versa. 
Some of us think if the Love room is open, then the Freedom door has to be shut. Others think that if the Freedom room is open then the Support and Abundance doors will close. We have subconsciously made negotiation deals with all of our rooms. “Will give up Honesty to have Harmony, will be okay with no Power as long as I have Happiness.” I have no idea who our Energy Lawyers were, but these negotiation deals are really not working for us anymore! Sure they worked once upon a time. Of course we created all these lovely beliefs and stories because hey if ALL of us was open ALL of the time throughout ALL of our evolutionary process, then ironically we may not have had a chance to evolve in the way we have. What’s the point of being on a 3D free will planet if you can’t throw in some restrictions and limitations to make things a little interesting? So we all get that, ‘it happened for a reason’, blah blah blah.
So we’ve been trucking along, having fun (or not) with our personal stories, when someone upstairs decided it’s time to start turning the lights on – more specifically, it’s time to open all the doors, and let the light in to all of our rooms. Just in case we didn’t get our personal wake up call, Mr Galactic Centre is now working in partnership with Mr Sun and Mother Earth and blasting us with megawatts of Light on a daily basis. It’s like having a giant helicopter hovering over your mansion with a massive spotlight, with someone on a loudspeaker shouting “OPEN YOUR DOORS!!!”
You will know that the light is honing in on a closed door because it will feel somewhat like you are being squeezed between two vices to keep that door closed. It doesn’t feel good AT ALL!! Say that you have your ‘Assertive’ door shut, and you are used to saying “Oh it’s okay, that doesn’t matter, it’s all good.” Well you might have noticed that if you have said that this week it feels like you are speaking and punching yourself in the stomach at the same time. Or, perhaps you had the realisation it would infuriate you to say those words one more time and out of nowhere you stood up for yourself and said “That is not okay, it does matter, this is what I want, and this is what I will have!”
It’s not always a simple open and shut case, pardon the pun.  You might have a belief that automatically slams the Assertive Door shut when the Asking for what you Want door is open, but the Assertive Door is wide open when the Helping Others door is open.  So this tells us there is nothing wrong with our Assertive room or door, we have just had a trip wire activating it open or shut depending on the situation.
In what life areas do you feel restricted right now? Your living situation? Finances? A health issue? What story are you telling yourself to justify that restriction? Eg, “I don’t earn much but it’s because I am doing what I love. I could have lots of money if I joined the rat race but I don’t want to.” Why can’t you earn what you truly want while doing what you love? Why can’t you have BOTH those rooms open? You can of course, you just have that trip wire set up making it up until now impossible! Others may have “I am not happy in my job but I have to pay the bills.” Hmm.....So if you had the “Happy in my Job” door open, you couldn’t have the “I can pay the bills” door open too? Who says? They say, I know. Forget what they say. Open both doors right now! Open them energetically, open them mentally, open them emotionally, then they will eventually open physically – they have to!
This week has triggered a heightened awareness of where you may be boxing yourself in to express a limited version of your self and life.  Jelena (artist and art therapist, check her out at recommended I do some artwork to help shift some energy, and I pass that recommendation on to you. All you need is a box of crayons, a big sheet of paper and a life area that is feeling stuck, restricted or frustrating in any way.  What I found was that three drawings emerged. The first symbolised how restricted part of me felt when in a particular situation. The second was a drawing of me being free, but it seemed to be a pseudo or fake freedom, because it came at the expense of pushing the other part of my life to the background – something I didn’t really want to do.  I saw how I had a pattern of see-sawing between the two, ultimately fulfilling one aspect of me to the denial of the other. My soul wanted both aspects to be fulfilled, in complementary harmony with each other.  This led to drawing number three, which was all about wholeness – allowing all aspects to be fulfilled, meeting my needs and the needs of others in a balanced way, in all life areas.  So get out your crayons because the images that emerge on paper really make you see so clearly what story your energy has been playing out.  The third ‘ultimate outcome’ drawing is perfect to hang on your wall, symbolizing what you would like to embody and how you would most like to feel.
The frustrated eruptions of this week and month are ultimately leading to our expansion, to a wider perspective when it comes to who we are and who we can be. Any trade-offs of “Well if I am this I can’t be that” will tend to feel literally like you are cutting off your circulation or flow, you might feel a tightening in your chest or a feeling of pressure bearing down on you. The universe is shouting “Stop it!” at any sign of self-restriction or self-limitation. I can hear people saying ‘If I didn’t restrict my eating I’d put on weight in a second! Restriction can be good.” Ideally, a healthy, fit person isn’t coming from a place of self-restriction – rather coming from a place of eating healthily and wanting to feel good, and when you come from that place you naturally choose foods that are good for you and naturally don’t over-indulge because it doesn’t feel good.  Restriction in it’s literal sense, say in the form of a strict diet, rarely works in the long term because our bodies will always rebel against being told no. Our bodies will very happily move toward what we are saying yes to.
So the universe is also asking us right now to know why we are doing what we are doing?  Do you want that fast car to give you a feeling of freedom, a feeling you don’t feel in your home? If so, you need to stop and check in with your Freedom door and ask why you feel it is shut when you are at home.  Is it a perception issue from childhood or a past life, or is it a real issue? If you are craving something, let’s use the example of Success, chances are you haven’t connected with it fully within. That is, you keep shutting the Success door when certain other doors are open. What are those other doors? We can’t escape whatever it is we are running from. We have to face all unowned aspects of ourselves, otherwise they will eventually catch up to us, usually in a way we didn’t want or expect.
So what’s the big deal, why not just have the fast car and use that wonderful freedom feeling to avoid the whole home situation? Well remember that spotlight on top of your mansion? It’s not going away anytime soon.  You can still have the fast car, but you can’t use it to avoid connecting with what it is really wanting you to connect to which might be your Inner Authentic Freedom or Inner Authentic Success or Inner Authentic need for True Love or Emotional Intimacy or whatever it is.
We are no longer being allowed to use external things to feel restricted, or feel expanded. We are undoing the restrictions from the inside, and expanding from the inside, so that when we do connect with things external to us we are doing so not out of an unmet need or not for an escape or not out of obligation, but out of the pure desire to be, do or have that certain something as a natural extension and expression of the authentic inner connection. The extension and expression leads to inner expansion, and as your inner expands so too will your outer and on it goes as an ever-evolving spiral. 
On a final note, I’ve had a certain car on my vision board for years. A few weeks ago I woke up thinking what am I waiting for? I'm going to buy myself this car for my birthday! (March 11). Well I bought it this past weekend and guess what, the registration is my birthday and the girl I bought it from has my birthday! Magic happens once we finally get up the courage to say I'm going to do this NOW! What have you been waiting to do or have, that is waiting for you to say "I'm ready now"?  There is a tonne of energy washing over you right now – use it!
