Liens Filed Against All 12 Federal Reserve Banks — Huge Step Towards Freedom

As most Americans are scrambling to finish their tax returns, something’s buzzing at the Federal Reserve, and for once, it’s in We the People’s favor. David Wilcock, author of “The Trillion Dollar Lawsuit that Could End Financial Tyranny,” just released news that liens have been filed against all 12 Federal Reserve Banks. This may not sound like a big deal if you haven’t been following recent events designed to return this planet to prosperity and free its citizens from the illegal stranglehold of bankers, the Shadow Government, BigPharma, and all the other “Bigs.” In terms of global impact, though? This is the first of many game-changers.

Special thanks to KP for all his tireless work turning interviews into MP3’s, distilling highlights and sharing corroborating evidence as events permit:

“By the way, if you do not know the definition of a lien, here it is.

‘lien: the legal claim of one person upon the property of another person to secure the payment of a debt or the satisfaction of an obligation.’

[Kp Note: The $ amount of the gold in the lien, at today’s price, $1660/oz., would be (4,638,791,996 kg) x (2.2 lb/kg) x (16 oz/lb) x ($1660/oz) = $271,053,893,910,272; that’s $271 trillion]”

Those of you who took the time to listen to this “History is Being Made” interview between David Wilcock and Insider “Drake,” will be pleased to learn that these liens were considered a necessary preliminary step in “The Plan” before the mass arrests of high level criminals in government, banking, media and other corporations could occur. You can find highlights of David’s new article by clicking here. The full article is here.

Times are seriously changing, folks. Whether you believe “conspiracy theorists are all crackpot conservative wackos,” or you think your government would never betray you, or that going to uninspired, exhausting work, paying the bills and sleeping are all anyone can expect in life — our world is about to get the equivalent of a life-saving blood-infusion, surgery to remove bullets and tumors, stitches to sew up gaping wounds, and massive amounts of love, care and the freedom to heal in peace. You may or may not have noticed this suffering yourself, but that won’t stop you from feeling the relief.

I encourage people to read David’s article, because the world will need informed Lightworkers once this hits mainstream news. Collective veils will drop like never before. As in Plato’s cave analogy, the bright Light instead of dim shadows will initially hurt people’s eyes, even those ones who have longed for Truth. When people realize just how much their concept of reality has been steeped in lies, they will have the opportunity for tremendous, unprecedented freedom and growth, but many will also struggle to understand how and why such things could ever have occurred. The world will go through a grieving period not unlike survivors of severe abuse or trauma go through when they finally reach safe enough quarters and have the emotional support to process what happened.

To those Lightworkers who’ve been biding your time, wondering when, if ever, you will get to offer your gifts to the world: your time fast approaches. Please inform yourselves so that you can help transmute collective shock into wonder, collective grief into jubilant celebration. Again, the article link is here.

You’ll notice that David mentions free energy technology soon to be released on this planet. Synchronously, last evening, I listened to a radio interview with Sterling Allan on Red Ice Radio. “Mr. Allan’s graduate studies at BYU and the University of Arizona were in Bioelectrochemisty. Prior to his focused involvement in free energy, Allan was an activist in promoting principles of freedom and defending them against forces conspiring to establish world tyranny. In this interview, Sterling explains how free energy will be the defeat of the conspirators. He’ll talk about the top 5 most promising developments in free technology, including availability and price.”

I only listened to part one of the interview, but Mr. Allan provided an uplifting — and in my view, right on! — description of how tree-hugging environmentalists and conservative or libertarian conspiracy aware-ists can find common ground and freedom in free energy technology. He describes the development, production and distribution process, as well as details about workable cold-fusion and ways that freeing humanity from the power grid can help create new jobs, remove the power of the Powers that Were, as well as help everyone to live with clean, clear water, air and crops. Again, we are all more alike than different in our dreams and desires. The Powers that Were implemented such a strong “divide and conquer” mentality that Left/Right, liberal/conservative often don’t even realize how much they could benefit by taking back their own power and working together. With neighbors. In community. “Think globally, act locally.” To quote En Vogue, “Free your mind and the rest will follow.” šŸ˜‰

In context of David’s liens announcement, this interview bolsters my strong belief that those who choose it are about to get a New Earth, far more beautiful and free than most people have ever dared to imagine. Namaste and woohoo!!!

Pluto Retrograde, Venus Retrograde Shadow 2012

Today we have another guest blog post from the lovely Electra Jung. This post speaks for itself, so I will keep my comments to a minimum. Let’s just say, I’m feeling and noticing all these things — in myself, in loved ones, in clients, in the world at large. “Humanity is now fully immersed into collective agreements — after all we are in this together — that life must change.” Yep! If you’re feeling it, too, please know that even the heavens support your inner journey.

Awareness beginsā€¦again

April 2012

Pluto retrograde, Venus retrograde shadow


Venusā€™ retrograde shadow April 11.
Become aware of the situations arising and what it is which demands your attention over the next days — whatever it is, you will be working with these energetics on many different levels over the next several months.

The astrological meaning of retrograde Venus is the re-evaluation of a person or situation in your life. This timing represents the changing conditions involving love, attractions, partners and emotions! Especially the more uncertain emotional connectionsā€¦ which may no longer ā€œfeelā€ in a state of balance. This leads to misinterpreting the intentions of othersā€¦in love and in partnerships. The time you devote creating relationships with thingsā€¦with material items, creates an ego-identification with objects. Finally you merge yourself with illusionā€¦dreaming, desiring, and obsessing with some-thing which can never return the emotional investment.

This is the time to reconsider all relationships in terms of their true value before making final commitments. .. and this is only the shadow period! Venus retrograde begins May 15th so the subtle concerns are now taking form in your thoughts and feelings.

Pressure and dis-content encourage you to re-evaluate who and what is meaningful and authentic before continuing into deeper levels. It is the hidden motivations and inhibitions which disguise true expression of love that are now brought to the surface for fuller expression and understanding. During this time there can be a growing distance and withdrawal from close involvements with others as the need to reflect on personal issues of discontent, vague desires and uncertainties. This is the gradual process to spiritualize the expression of love.

The spiritual void becomes a way of life ā€¦ soul-less and mechanical interactions become the predominant pattern of accepted social exchange. The inauthentic life of Ego projection denies the intimacy of True relationship with all that is — nature herself — your-self. Soul lives through relationship and it is in soul that we find meaning.

“Loneliness is caused by an alienation from life. It is a loneliness from your real self.”

— Maxwell Maltz

We can have meaningful relationships with people, animals and other beings, projects, ideas and ideals. Each moment, we begin to free ourselves from the conditioning of the past and the suffering that it so often brings.

Take awareness to new levels. Experience yourself in the act of being aware. Be aware of awareness itself. To do this, we need to go beyond our old mechanical patterns, compulsions and rejections. We need to uproot the arrogance of ego. Now is the time to change our ways before it is too late for us as a species. It is up to each of us to take responsibility for our actions;

Pluto retrograde April 10: Pluto brings cleansing and transformation. The process of death and rebirth activates the evolution of consciousness.

Higher awareness is conscious of spirit and form working together. We must be conscious and present within before we can tune in to the guidance of our soul. Develop awareness to hear the subtlest whispers of intuition and give attention to your thoughts, feelings and sensations.

We are fast approaching the end of a great cosmic cycle leading to a massive leap in the evolution of human consciousness. This time requires you to remain totally present and accountable for action/ reactions. The illusions of outer events are simply mirroring the divine shift currently expressed as chaos and confusion.

ā€œRebirth and change are the watchwords of the month as the cosmic work necessary to bring about balance and harmony tears down the barriers and structures physical, mental, emotional, spiritual or etheric – erected to create fear, separation, division, protection and generate differences.ā€ – Rev Angela

With awareness, we are fully involved with life. Awareness is sensing deeply and sensitively for what really is. We can be open and attentive.

Sent from a forecast subscriber:

ā€œAs I read through it, customers come in voicing the very problems you are writing about! Their families are alienating them, they find themselves spinning circles and not knowing where to go. They need reassurance that they are here, they are themselves, and they are experiencing these difficulties and finding they have to reinvent themselves yet again to keep pace with the madding world.ā€

Peace is found in the eye of the stormā€¦the center of your Being and a renewed connection with your Inner voiceā€¦ it is thereā€¦it is hereā€¦it is where one always finds the divineā€¦with-in.

Awakening involves the conscious choice to develop yourself spiritually ā€¦beginning with introspection, make dietary changes to strengthen your physical body and begin movement in nature as exercise to re-connect with natural elements. Choose to become more enlightened ā€¦choose to be a vibration of higher consciousness that permeates into your environment.

Create a vibration that is free from fear and full of love and light. Not only will this state of consciousness help us individually, but it will also affect others around us.

As quantum physicist David Bohm explains, ā€œWhen matter is investigated, it is revealed as an ocean of energy and light.ā€

Your physical selfā€¦ made up of matterā€¦ is also considered an ocean of energy and light. Every thought and every word leads to actionā€¦moment by momentā€¦directing your life either through an awakened state or by the robotic trance-states of non-being.

Faith and Trust: Believe in yourself, power, and responsibility of free will, and April will be a month in which deep inner realizations surface.

Humanity is now fully immersed into collective agreements — after all we are in this together — that life must change. It is the ā€œchangeā€ manifesting within your inner-world. The place where Soul has always resided during this most difficult and tumultuous upheaval: you are the Change.

“The way of the Creative works is through change and transformation, so that each thing receives its true nature and destiny and comes into permanent accord with the great harmony: this is what furthers and what perseveres.” – I Ching.


Human consciousness

If we remain unaware, we:

– repeat the past,

– remain stuck in relationships,

– live superficial, literal and one dimensional lives,

– lack experiences of love and beauty, and

– have limited connection to others and the universe.

Barbara Marcinak’s Pleiadians have suggested for a very long time that we get away from machine technology as much as possible and start returning to nature. They even go so far as to say that Earth will eventually split into two worlds; one machine world, where people walk around like zombies, totally relying on technology to get through the day, and one world where people get together in communities and help each other out, living with nature and can thus evolve, in our bodies, together with Earth.

Always Loving Life,

19 Things that the Talking Heads On Television Are Being Strangely Silent About

The following article comes from Activist Post via Rumor Mill News. I’ve mentioned some of these things in my blog and in sessions with people, but I think the collective list makes for interesting reading, contemplation, meditation and prayer:

19 Things That The Talking Heads On Television Are Being Strangely Silent About
Michael Snyder, Contributor
Activist Post

If the talking heads on television don’t tell us about something that happens, does it make that event any less real? Of course the answer to that question is quite obvious, but unfortunately way too many Americans allow their realities to be defined by what they hear from the mainstream media.

Way too many people use phrases such as “if that was true I would have heard about it on television” to deflect conversations that are starting to become uncomfortable.

Critical thinking is a skill that is in short supply in America today, and most Americans seem content to let their televisions do their thinking for them. Sadly, the pretty people on television do not spend a lot of time talking about the things that are truly important. Instead, they love to talk about the latest celebrity scandal and they love to divide people into groups and get them fighting with one another.

In this day and age, it is absolutely critical that we all learn to think for ourselves. The talking heads on television are concerned with keeping their bosses happy and with keeping the ratings up. Most of them are not really concerned about what happens to you. They just want you to keep watching them so that they can continue to earn their inflated salaries.

Unfortunately, most Americans seem perfectly content with the “infotainment” that they are getting from the major news networks, so major changes to the mainstream media are not likely to happen any time soon.

For those wanting something different, you will have to seek out alternative sources of news (such as this website) that are willing to discuss the truly earth shattering events that are continually taking place all over the globe.

So what are some of the things that the mainstream media has been ignoring?

The following are 19 things that the talking heads on television have been strangely silent about….

#1 Strange Things Happening On The Sun
A lot of really weird things have been happening on the sun lately. For example, recently there was a tornado on the sun that was five times larger than Earth. The following is how this solar tornado was described by a recent Wired article….

Over the course of three hours, this behemoth reached up from the sunā€™s surface to a height of 125,000 miles, or roughly half the distance between the Earth and the moon. The hot gases were whipped up to nearly 186,000 miles per hour. In comparison, the wind speed of terrestrial tornadoes generally reaches a paltry 100 miles per hour.

Dream On: Why Sleep is So Important

The folks at frugaldad.com sent me this infographic on sleep, and I thought I’d share it here. Having had my own brain injury and working with so many other TBI survivors, I know firsthand and professionally just what a difference a good night’s sleep makes for healing, brain function and mood. In 2010, I lived in an apartment with an old fashioned elevator pulley directly above my bed. That same attic housed many of the doors I painted that year, but, my goodness! Steady sleep did not come easily.

I do credit all the wake up calls for having so many dream downloads that year, but my waking life has infinitely improved since moving to a house where I often sleep the whole night through. I also see from close, objective observation how many factors sleep deprivation affects — as well as how such things miraculously resolve themselves during extended periods of sleep recovery. A high raw food diet certainly shaves several hours off required sleep, but the adrenals, brain, outlook, wound healing and general experience of life sure love some zzzzz’s.

Raw Vegan Easter Feast

In keeping with our raw vegan holiday celebrations, my local holiday crew and I decided to enjoy another delicious feast. In keeping with my Lazy Raw Foodist moniker, I found myself weighing the lazier of two options: walk 1.5 miles each way to the co-op to procure lazy feast ingredients, or use whatever I had on hand to make potentially more complicated offerings. After dancing for half an hour on the rebounder, I decided I’d opt for a little more prep, minus the 3 miles of travel, half of it lugging home ingredients.

That left me with some interesting choices. As with painting doors, I find food prep limitations enhance my creativity. I had some raw staples, half a container of arugula, half a bunch of kale, apples, and some fermenting tahini kefir. What to do, what to do? Thinking of my Christmas Eve sausages from Raw Fusion Living, I synchronously popped over to the Raw Fusion Living blog, where I found a recipe for a curried kale, apple and cucumber salad with dried cranberries. I had no cuke, but I did have a container of fresh cranberries that I froze around Thanksgiving. I quickly popped those out of their container, rinsed under warm water and stuck them in the dehydrator.

No, they didn’t look like craisins by the time I left for our meal, but the flavor intensified and they did dry out a bit.

Next, I decided that with minimal ingredients on hand, I could make an easier to digest meal — fermented tahini milk in a dessert drink could help digest a tahini based curry dressing. Apple cider vinegar instead of my non-existent lime juice could help digest the salad’s apples. My half batch of arugula would need to supplement my half bunch of kale, since I didn’t have enough of either for the full recipe. I dropped tahini, curry powder, water, soaked dates and some soak water, a splash of tamari, olive oil, ACV, and some leftover white onion into the Vitamix. Holy freakin’ yum! I had to stop myself from “testing” the recipe, or I would have just eaten it straight out of the jar.

Curry Tahini Dressing

I set the dressing aside in the fridge and chopped some needed-to-be-used-today celery to add to the greens. Then I went on a shorter walk, took a shower and decided the kefir had had almost adequate fermentation time (22 of the usual 24 hours).

Tahini Kefir Fermenting

I strained off the “grains” and dropped them in some coconut water to keep them going. Then I added the tahini kefir to the Vitamix with raw cacao powder, maca, 3 soaked dates + soak water, and a splash of vanilla stevia. The result? Ho-hum. I’ve often made a Mexican Chocolate drink with cayenne and cinnamon, which seriously rocks, but after adding the cayenne, I remembered we were out of cinnamon. Hmmmmm, what kind of chocolate flavor goes with curried cranberry apple greens? I dug around in the cupboard until my fingers landed upon some Sweet Orange essential oil. Three drops transformed the entire quart into something complex and exquisite, if I do say so myself. Total yum!

Chocolate Maca Tahini Kefir with Essence of Orange

By then, my cranberries were as dehydrated as they were gonna get on such short notice, so I popped them and some chopped Lady Alice apples into the kale-arugula-celery mix, coating it all with the tahini curry dressing.

Curried Kale Arugula Salad with Apples and Cranberries

Another yum! This one’s so pretty and tasty, it could easily grace a winter holiday table, even for omnivores. I especially like the bright reds and greens.

As usual, without any planning on our part, the combined feast entrees complemented each other well. We had cauliflower-cashew “mashed potatoes,” a chipotle spread, seaweed-sunflower dip, a green soup appetizer, homegrown herbs and freshly harvested collard greens. Madison has been so warm already that my friends with the sunny backyards already have collards growing! Their three-year-old daughter loves gardening, and she picked the collards, mint, parsley, garlic greens and tulips right before I arrived.

Raw Vegan Easter Feast

Of course, no holiday meal would be complete without dessert. How about homemade chocolates? Sure, those sound great, but sandwiching them between fresh mint leaves took them way over the top.

Homemade Raw Chocolates

My chocolate tahini drink provided just the right backdrop to these little goodies. Once we’d finished our feast, as if on cue, one of their housemates arrived, just “needing” to pour off some homemade kombucha so he could start another batch. We happily provided glasses and sipped on booch for the rest of our visit. All in all, a delightful day!

Sure, my recipes required fermentation and a dehydrator, but they still count as Lazy Raw Foodist fare, since they required very little activity on my part. The dehydrator and kefir grains do their own thing for hours while I do mine. I feel so blessed to have such a lovely raw food community in Madison and so many dear friends. Fabulous food makes my heart sing, but it’s doubly nice when coupled with playful, vibrant children, high vibe conversations and synchronous gifts. Wishing everyone a beautiful day and beyond! Much Love, Laura

Happy Easter, Ostara, Passover and Life!

Quick smiles, eggs and cosmic wishes for everyone out there celebrating anything at all:

Cheers!

Humpty Dumpty all back together again

Hildegard von Bingen The Cosmic Egg

Hildegard von Bingen, The Cosmic Egg, 12th c.

Medieval art: Hildegard von Bingen, a mystic, paints her visions.

(via women-art)

For those who don’t know Hildegard, she was a 12th century mystic, herbal healer, nun, composer and artist. I first learned of her when my brain injury related migraines forced me to drop out of Northwestern University’s PhD program in English Literature. I stayed in touch with several professors, one of whom had studied connections between Hildegard’s migraines and her cosmic visions. Wow! Someone else with migraines and cosmic visions! I’ve considered both my professor and Hildegard kindred spirits ever since. (This professor is the same one who calls me “Lily” for my synchronous ways of procuring just the right clothes, usually for free. Lily, as in: “Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.”) Anyway, I digress! Happy Easter, Ostara, Passover, Life and World with a little Hildegard to light your way:

Lee Harris April 2012 Energy Forecast

I just love finding Lee’s forecasts after the month has already begun. That gives me a chance to notice my own patterns and themes, as well as those of clients. As usual, Lee Harris articulates so much of what I’ve sensed in late March leading into April and then observed in sessions this month. Good news for people who feel like life just won’t let up:

“April marks the end of a cycle and the close to chapter 1 of 2012 energetically speaking.

“May will start a new cycle for us, so this month will bring an end to the death cycles that so many have been going through these past months. Fragments from the past will finally resolve, physical energy will start to lift, and the hibernation period will draw to a close for most of you.

“I do not need to repeat that these are intense times we are living in, for we are highly aware of this. But what I do need to repeat, is that the difficult symptoms of your journey will be unquestionably improved by greater focus on your physical and emotional well-being.” ~Lee Harris

I hope you enjoy the rest of his forecast.

Please note: If you feel you need extra energetic support this month, I did bring back the Ascension Coaching Packages through April 23, 2012. We’ve got a lot of energy zapping this planet from inside out and upside down. If you can align yourself with Source, you can tap into that increased energy and use it to make quantum leaps. If you find yourself out of alignment with Source, you’ll feel frazzled, erratic, in danger, fried, and/or burned out. The Ascension Coaching Packages are designed to shift you back into your own natural connection with Source. Yes, you can heal and evolve quickly enough to conduct that energy instead of getting shocked. We live in potent, electric times. I wish you all the best, always and in all ways. Namaste.

More Awakening and Empowerment

For those of you who missed my History is Being Made post, or who prefer reading to listening, David Wilcock recently released a transcript of his interview with Pentagon insider “Drake.” In addition to the interview itself, David includes even more insider information about periods of near-military-coups in recent history. He describes the Watergate scandal as running far deeper than most of the civilian population ever realized, with striking parallels to 9/11 and today.

Over 1.3 million people tuned in to hear Drake’s followup interview on Freedom Reigns. The saying goes, “Where two or more are gathered, there am I among them,” highlighting the intensified power of collective focus. In this case, we’ve got over a million people focusing on an End to Financial Tyranny, Divine Intervention, and an age of greater ease and freedom than this planet has known for many aeons. As a Lightworker in 2012, I feel it’s important for people to contribute in whatever ways they can to raise the vibration of this planet. We face some incredible challenges, but we also stand to inherit generations worth of hopes, dreams and intentions for freedom. Understanding the stakes helps us more clearly to visualize solutions and to find our own part in the whole. How can we each support the unfolding of our most preferred scenario?

I believe the original interview and the global interest it sparked contain valuable keys for freeing ourselves; however, not everyone will resonate with what Drake and David share. And that’s OK, too. If you find all of these “conspiracy facts” new, confusing, and overwhelming, you might want to take a step back and view “Thrive: What on Earth Will it Take?” This movie explains how our world got to where we are now, but it ends with phenomenal hope and practical solutions. If you already know what’s been happening and want to focus only on positive, proactive vibrations, that’s wonderful, too. As Abraham-Hicks says, “One person connected to Source is more powerful than one million who are not.”

It matters less what or how you participate in your life and your reality than that you do actively participate in your life and reality. A non-vote = a vote for a pretty crappy default reality, which will continue to shift according to those people actively molding it for you. “Create your own reality, or someone else will.” In order to create your own reality, you don’t need to know every detail of how your governments, banks, pharmaceutical companies, medical profession and religions have betrayed your confidence. Sometimes that information helps you to form stronger desires that align more clearly with what you truly want. But such knowledge isn’t required.

In order to exert positive, creative influence on your world you simply need to show up, dream big, and get out of your own way. Allow yourself to receive the wondrous things you’d most love to experience. For some people that will feel very personal; for others, it will feel global or even cosmic. Anyone interested in living in a freer, more peaceful, awakened society might want to consider the Drake-Wilcock interview as a fabulous launching pad.

And for those of you who prefer non-participatory participation, here’s a meditation for your personal power center, Manipura. A balanced Collective Solar Plexus = transcendence of the entire victim-abuser-savior cycle. As within, so without. Peace in, peace out!

Peace!

Why Telepathy Makes People Mad

Someone contacted me this morning about her increasing telepathic gifts, and our discussion reminded me of this article I wrote way back in 2008. That seems like forever ago, but I enjoyed the review, as world events and the worldwide awakening have continued to lead us more in the direction of Universal Telepathy. My original post rushed through me after I synchronously stumbled upon an online argument about Steve Pavlina “going off the deep end” and “talking to spiders.” Little did I know that my own post would create an even bigger stir as some people on Steve’s forums and in the blogosphere embraced new possibilities while others ramped up their denial in aggressive ways.

Given the massive doses of Truth sleeping masses on Earth are about to receive, this revelation-denial-acceptance-liberation process has even bigger implications for our changing world in 2012. I hope you enjoy my trip down memory/future lane:

Why Telepathy Makes People Mad

With the growing interest in Animal Communication, uber-bloggers like Steve Pavlina talking to spiders, and more people embracing higher vibration foods, also comes a backlash from people who would rather maintain old boundaries and a “comfortable” sense of separation. Anger, outrage, scorn and disbelief explode as those who accept (or at least explore) ideas of Oneness make their voices heard in larger and different ways.

Despite diatribes against talking to ants, I really don’t believe people hate bugs that much. They just don’t want to think of bugs as sentient, conscious beings, because, let’s face it: if the bugs have feelings and respond to us, then what does that say about animals and humans? And what about “no see ’ems” like angels, extraterrestrials, spirit guides, and disembodied souls? When you start talking about bugs as conscious beings with whom we can communicate, you open a whole ‘nother can of (potentially thinking and feeling) worms!

This polarization occurs in areas besides Animal Communication. My deaf niece Amanda recently received a cochlear implant and for the first time in her life has begun to hear. I have several contacts in the deaf community, and from what I understand, cochlear implants have become incredibly controversial. Parts of the deaf community feel that hearing will rob children of the gifts of being deaf, while others laud how technological progress opens possibilities. Many people have so appreciated my sister-in-law’s careful chronical of Amanda’s journey, because it brings this controvery back to individuals simply documenting their experience. Their blogs acknowledge the challenges but also share a sense of joy and liberation at Amanda’s growing ability to communicate in different ways.

The controversy of cochlear implants has actually reached the national level, as advances in hearing technology have literally changed expectations and responsibilities for educating the deaf. Teachers who cannot hear and who communicate with ASL (American Sign Language) only, must now find ways to help students with CI’s embrace other languages and techniques. People who have never used their own voice must now teach others to use theirs. How do schools find a balance among so many different levels of hearing, speaking and awareness? What does it mean to be deaf in 2008? Emotions on both sides mirror what’s taking place in the world at large.

Consider how communication has changed and expanded exponentially in recent years. When the World Wide Web initially appeared, some people “got” the potential, but very few could predict just how much it would revolutionize our world. Within a few short years, “everyone” was online. Communities like MySpace, Facebook, GI2MR, Twitter, eHarmony, and others have practically eliminated space-time restrictions to communication and relationship. It’s no longer unusual for folks to have friends on several continents, even if they’ve never left their own country.

The advent of blogging and e-books has further crunched time and space. We no longer need to wait for publishers and printers to release our messages. One click of the “publish” or “post” button does the trick, making words, sounds and images immediately available to millions. Translation software turns language differences into a non-issue, and viral videos like Dancing with the Universe go beyond words altogether.

Even the news media has had to reckon with YouTube. Primary debates allowed videos from actual voters asking questions of the candidates, and today’s presidential race dodges daily influence from blogs, pirate videos and online fact-checkers. Today, I saw a political analyst on TV, superimposed by his Twitter account with viewers asking him “real-time” questions.

For those of you not familiar with Twitter, it differs from email in that everyone can follow your conversations with everyone else. Talk about communication transparency! If you sign up to “follow” someone on Twitter, you can view their “tweets” all day long, along with online archives of all correspondence. In a sense you merge your consciousness with theirs, past, present and with the opportunity of future tweets. The catch? The messages must be conveyed in 140 characters or less. Thus, shorthand and abbreviations dominate, just like in animal communication sessions or sign language. Oddly evocative of Haiku, Twitter encourages its “tweeters” to convey much with little.

Major news programs now request photos and text messages from ordinary people’s cells and Blackberries. Why? Because it’s faster; they get immediate coverage. Thus, the desire to crush time as a factor in communication has democratized the news. Significant enough numbers of people have tired of the elite forms of information distribution. En masse and individually, they have finally said, “No, thank you” to old boundaries, hierarchies and separation. They have reclaimed and/or invented new means of communication that transcend the bounds of time and space. The more this happens, the more we’ve moved into COMMUNicatION. Crunch it just a little more, and you get COMMUNION. Oneness.

So, why does telepathy make people mad?

Because telepathy means change. Mainstreaming telepathy means an inevitable collapse of all the boundaries, fences, walls and judgments that keep things separate. It means lies we tell ourselves and others will become more transparent. It means intention becomes a more powerful and obvious force. It means that those whose power comes from secrecy or fear mongering will eventually lose their sway. Because individuals refuse to be silenced: man, woman, child, animal, bug, angel, extraterrestrial … they’re all exploring new ways to hear and help themselves be heard. The intense emotions and attacks in the deaf and Animal Communication arenas only amplify what’s happening everywhere else.

The writing is already on the wall. And in the blogs. And paintings and tweets and chat rooms. I’m reminded here of William Wordsworth:

The world is too much with us; late and soon,
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers:
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
The Sea that bares her bosom to the moon;
The winds that will be howling at all hours,
And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers;
For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
It moves us not.–Great God! I’d rather be
A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn;
So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;
Or hear old Triton blow his wreathed horn.

In reality, we’re really not that far from universal telepathy. Think about it: fifty years ago, few people thought the deaf would ever hear; fewer people imagined sending “Instant Messages” to people in different time zones; and almost no one expected someone named Steve Pavlina to talk to spiders!

Whether or not people “believe in evolution,” we’re all in it. Right this very moment, humans and this planet are evolving. The Mayan Calendar, E.T. channelings and the New Age movement all suggest a movement to the 4th dimension, one in which time functions in a very different way. One which emphasizes timing more than time. Synchronicity. This shift involves a change of vibration, perhaps the very vibration heralded by raw foodists and long time meditators. In the end, though, it doesn’t really matter which route you choose, because the tide is strong now.

You don’t need to read esoteric spiritual teaching to recognize the forces of change. Turn on the news. Look at the stock market. 777 point drop on 9/29? The US Financial Market in a shambles? The barriers have already begun to crumble. CNN’s feature on raw food generated unprecedented interest. We have a black man in the running for president. Oprah’s talking about past lives. You can “tweet” from anywhere. Technology, Telepathy, Synchronicity, and Oneness. “The Word is very near. It is in your mouth and in your heart that you may observe it.”

Isn’t it time we do?
