Lee Harris ~ Energy Update, Invite Peace & Connect

This is an important energy update from Lee Harris, which echoes what I have sensed in my own life, as well as themes during sessions. I have been very busy with sessions and teaching various public and private classes, so I’ve not had time to post about current energies. As usual, Lee is spot on. This video will especially support anyone in process of summoning big life changes, working on creative projects, and/or reevaluating relationships. Here’s Lee:

Creativity, Lyme Disease and Instagram

Confession: after spending a few days on Instagram, I have to admit that social media’s even crazier than I suspected it would be in 2016! To me, it feels like walking around a mega mall on Black Friday, something I’ve purposely avoided since childhood. All manner of eye candy, logos and slogans vie for your attention, and even if you’re there with people you “know in real life,” you almost need to shout through the din or have your face and voice completely swallowed by hordes of people, razzle-dazzle, endless thoughts of the day, and the ever increasing images, some of which are truly spectacular.

I’ve enjoyed catching an extra glimpse into friends’ and clients’ (public) “private” lives, and, as with those upscale mega malls or top notch international bazaars, if you can find ways to manage systemic overwhelm, you’ll begin to notice amazing things. Former medical intuitive coaching client, fashion blogger, and soon to be co-authoring with me a Lyme Disease recovery book, Catherine Grace O’Connell, had often told me about the supportive Lyme community on Instagram, and during the past few days I’ve recognized exactly what she meant. The friendships, inspiration, networking and encouragement on Instagram for people with LD go beyond anything I expected to find there. I cannot even explain the breadth and depth of loving, supportive connections I’ve witnessed.

I work with so many isolated individuals in various stages of Lyme Disease, and one of the biggest topics to arise in sessions is a pressing need to channel their creativity in constructive rather than destructive ways. As Catherine shared in an interview you can find here, unlocking her own creativity flipped a switch in her recovery. Instead of lying bed ridden with daily seizures, she now has over 21K followers on Instagram, runs a popular fashion blog, travels, supports “Lymies” and others with major health issues, and writes as a guest author for the Huffington Post, where she interviews musicians, artists and other cultural creatives making a difference in the world. She brings a spiritual depth and beauty to areas often glossed over or only superficially addressed.

But back to creativity, Lyme and Instagram: yesterday, I came across @morethanlyme, and found The More Than Lyme Holiday Gift Guide. This warms my heart like a bonfire, because it features art, fashion, beauty products, jewelry, detox mixtures, and Lyme Awareness paraphernalia, all created by people who have Lyme Disease! These creatives are truly living as “more than” their health issues, instead, bringing forth their inner beauty in ways that impact the greater world. I always love when artists express themselves in bigger ways, but in this case, I love it even more, because I recognize the layers upon layers of healing involved. All profits go towards helping people pay for treatments or raising public awareness and finding cures.

I have nothing vested in this project other than a soft spot for the many amazing beings I know who’ve been “initiated” by Lyme Disease. This Instagram newbie was so impressed yesterday that I asked @morethanlyme for a way to share this collection with my non-Instagram readers, many of whom are artists, natural healers, have Lyme, and/or know loved ones who do. Whatever your relationship with LD, prepare yourself for delight. These women are beyond talented. If you’ve got holiday shopping left or just want to treat yourself or support some good causes, here’s the non-Instagram link to The More Than Lyme Holiday Gift Guide. 

As for Instagram, I’ll stick around for awhile longer. Having avoided all social media since 2011, it’s generally not my cuppa tea, but I love seeing artists express themselves in myriad ways. I also love when people navigate chaos to find those amazing connections, heartfelt friendships, synchronous moments, and little glimpses beyond the veil. What a bizarre bazaar we live in right now, but here’s to healing and meaning through it all.

Big blessings and much love …

Timothy Glenn ~ 2016: A Call to Creatorship

My friend and colleague Timothy Glenn is back with a long awaited article about 2016. I find his timing interesting, given that many of the New Year’s tarot readings I did for people indicated that 2016 wouldn’t really ramp into “the new” until late February/early March.

With January’s Mercury Retrograde and all the other intense astrological alignments so far, this year has seemed like two steps forward and one back. Many people have begun to recognize and experience undeniable signs of positive change; however, until recently, those changes have often felt like eagerly peering through a fog while crawling on molasses. In her recent tarot video about yesterday’s Full Moon, Laura Daligan also mentions the sense of enormously hard work finally beginning to pay off.  In any case, Tim’s long delayed article seems right on time to me!

Your reaction or response to Tim’s article will depend upon the degrees to which you already embrace your own Creatorship in Love, realizing those degrees may vary in different settings and circumstances. I invite you to celebrate Tim’s message, but also to look at wherever it triggers you. Are you sick of all that drama? Do you hide from it? Or are you too busy creating alternatives — beauty, joy, love, peace, clarity, abundance, prosperity, and healing — to bother with anything else? Enjoy the journey! Here’s Timothy Glenn:

2016: A Call to Creatorship

Last year, the New Year’s article barely made it out in time for Chinese New Year. That turned out to be rather timely compared to 2016, primarily because there is so much going on and coming down the pike this year, that it seemed futile to attempt summarizing anything so massive. In addition, perhaps dealing with a persistent flu bug helped with the delay.

But the other day (in mid February) the vision for this article burst forth while doing a reading for a fun client from Australia.

2 + 0 + 1 + 6 = 9

Everything in our numerology system boils down to the skeletal structure of cycles of one through nine. Since 2016 is a 9 year, it will present us with lots of endings and lots of letting go. In many ways, this will manifest as the official major league industrial strength “Let Go” we have been talking about for decades.

The number 9 also corresponds with 9th House/Jupiter/Sagittarius in our astrology, as well as the Hermit card in the tarot. An important theme here involves our ability to see the Big Picture. The Hermit’s view from the mountaintop might appear sufficient, but the panorama of 2016 will more than likely require that we pan the camera back off this planet and out of this dimension to get a glimpse of what is happening.

20 + 16 = 36

Card 36 of the tarot deck is the 10 of Wands. Often known as the burden card, it shows a man carrying a heavy load of staves to a village. Pythagoras regarded it as the journey’s end, when we can finally set down the burdens, most of which were never ours anyway.

Attitudes like anger and judgment will only bind us to whatever we don’t like. To achieve the Big Let Go, “All You Need Is Love”. For Pythagoreans of the inner circle, the number 6 has always carried the love frequency. As the first of the truly rare perfect numbers, 6 represents perfect love – divine, unconditional, infinite love. 2016 and 36 both contain the number 6, but 36 is also six sixes (6×6), or love to the second power.

A key part of any whole number is its cumulative. In the cumulative sequence, we add all the numbers as we count. For example, 1 + 2 + 3 = 6, so the cumulative of 3 is 6. Thanks to a discovery by the old German mathematician Carl Gauss (when he was a schoolboy, no less) we can use the simple algebraic formula .5n (n+1) to find that the cumulative of 36 is 666. To Pythagoras, 666 would indicate filling the third dimension with perfect love. No wonder the religious control freaks shrouded 666 in fear.

As an aside for the non-math folks: .5n (n+1) translates as one half of the number (for which you want to know the cumulative) times the quantity of that number plus one. In this case n = 36. Half of 36 is 18, and 36 + 1 = 37. 18 x 37 = 666.

And just for fun, 6 x 36 = 216, which is love to the third power, and numerologically related to 2016. Love is the greatest power, and 2016 may force the issue of demonstrating it.

The Year of the Tower

2016 obviously emphasizes the 16, represented by the Tower card. Here we see a tower being struck by lightning, and people falling from the tower. Any tarot cards that look “negative” look that way because humans have traditionally resisted integrating the energy of that particular frequency. This is especially the case when letting go is required.

The tower symbolizes our endeavors and achievements. So here we are in 2016 with a tower full of ideas, habits, attitudes, philosophies and teachings which may have been alright for where we have been, but which will only gum up the works for where we are going. Are we ready to let go of our very interpretation of life, the universe and everything?

The English poet William Butler Yeats loved the Tower card, because when its energy is playing out in your life, there is no way to remain the same. Yeats abhorred complacency and stagnation, and 2016 will not support or even tolerate smug belief systems and their stuck-in-the-mud behaviors. The hammer is coming down.

A Heads Up For 2016

The long phenomenon of Uranus Square Pluto has flung open the gateways for profound planetary shift, and even a quantum leap in evolution. We may soon find the video screen of life emblazoned with three words: mutate or die. Either we respond to this opportunity to ascend to our next level of evolution, or we go extinct.

In the old external world (often called The Matrix), we can see several extinction level events unfolding. 2016 will show us even more. We can also literally look for signs in the sky.

Although the old world control system has tried to hide the approach of a mini solar system, many of us have been tracking it as it draws near. What we are viewing fits the descriptions of a “dark star” known to some of the ancients as Nemesis, among whose planets we find the famous Nibiru. This has fueled the doom and gloom club to postulate extremely dire predictions. But instead of nibbling at such bait, perhaps we could let our addiction to drama fall out of our towers.

The Lost Book of Nostradamus predicted a “harbinger of doom” that would appear in the constellation Ophiuchus, which is where our telescopes first caught sight of the approaching mini solar system. Here the question arises: doom for whom?

Thou Art God

If the hammer truly comes down this year in a variety of ways, it will help to center ourselves in our true identity. Are you nothing but a struggling little human at the mercy of external forces? Are you what Proterrian jokingly calls “nothing but a pathetic little snotling from 3D Planet Earth”?

Whatever surprises burst into our alleged reality this year, we will have the opportunity to step into our Creatorship. Nothing exists but the one infinite energy field we have called God. Physicists like to call it The Field. We are all part of The Field. We are all expressions of The Field. There is nothing else to be. As Proterrian likes to tell us, “Thou art God. Now act like it!”

You are the Creator, and you have the right and the power to create your own life, your own experience and your own reality. 2016 is inviting all of us to embrace our divinity and make it Real, irrespective of whatever horror movies are showing “out there” on the screen of the holographic Matrix.

The aforementioned article for last year was called 2015: A Call to Choice. In 2016, the choice is clear: snotling or Creator?

Thou art God, and God is love.

A Call for Visionary Artists, Cultural Creatives, Dreamers and Builders

Now’s the time to dig deep and bring forth our most inspired creative gifts to paint, sing, write, spell, dream and build our preferred new world into being. The “elite” friendly Economist magazine has put out its own symbolic program for 2015 on its cover. The obvious East/West “dichotomy” shown as controlled by the self-appointed elite bolsters Ken’s ongoing series about the false East/West “conflict.” I encourage you to click through to both links, as the Economist cover puts the psychopaths’ sick agenda on full, unapologetic display, while Ken’s latest articles give the rational breakdown of the Economist‘s subconscious, symbolic programming.

Well, guess what? Puppeteers aren’t the only ones who know how to work with symbols; they’re not the only ones who know how to dream or draw with intention; they’re not the only witches, murmurers and chanters in this world. Alan Kay — a computer scientist — said, “The best way to predict the future is to invent it.” Alan Kay is “known for his early pioneering work on object-oriented programming and windowing graphical user interface design.” [source] He’s someone who worked with computer models, not unlike the false Reality Matrix coding much of our world. Well, guess what? Cultural creatives, visionaries artists, dreamers and builders know how to pioneer our own object-oriented programming. We can create our own graphics and designs and challenge the accepted interface. And for those of us who don’t yet know, it’s time to learn and take action!

I find that for me and many others, 2015 has already marked a dramatic uptick in creativity. If you feel a project percolating or nipping at the edges of consciousness, now’s the time to devote yourself to bringing that project into being. The A’cons know how to simulate, but they need humanity to bring their creations into being. (Yes, I call them A’cons, like A’holes, and I suggest that you do, too. “Archon” means “ruler,” whereas “A$$ con” pretty much sums up their value.) Create your own reality, or someone else will.

If you need inspiration, consider asking Nature what She would like you to bring forth. Ask your Soul for ideas. Reclaim your narrative. Request “awen,” or “inspiration,” and then open to receive the Fire of Creation. It’s already kindled and ready to share. 🙂

How to Make Sure You’re Not Practicing Black Magic(k) By Accident

I’m not linking to the site where this comment appeared, because I do not wish to drop the referenced image anymore into the collective awareness than it already is. Nor do I wish to call out someone whom I know harbors no ill intent. I don’t know if my comment will see the light of day or not, but the concept bears mentioning:

Raven:

“This artist is doing a really fine job of providing endless mental images of what we do not want to happen. Why do you keep posting them? When people carry these images in their mind they create that reality. This isn’t waking up, it’s creating doom.”

[followed by a couple disbelieving/scoffing comments from others]

My response (currently awaiting moderation):

Raven is absolutely right in her comment on the ___ article. Anytime someone uses creativity to produce an extremely negative-oriented vision, especially via artwork and visual symbols, they are actually practicing the black magic(k) so many of you fear from the “Illuminati.”

That’s exactly what they do in Hollywood, in the mass televised rituals, etc. Jon Rappoport has written about the power of art, and it works both ways. We can use our creative powers to paint portals to more positive realities, to reclaim symbols or energies for our own preferred intentions … or we can (whether consciously or not) create spells via symbols and/or words that usher in the doom in far more powerful ways than the Illuminati/archons, etc. can do on their own. They cannot, by themselves, create. They use humanity’s imagination and power to create.

Just an FYI. It’s one reason I keep suggesting that people study metaphysics and magic(k). When you know how this stuff works, you become extremely careful not to do someone else’s black magic(k) and creating for them. Imagination and art are the most powerful forces in the universe. They can be fueled by love, hate or confusion. Love is powerful, but, contrary to the Beatles song, love is not “all you need.” Imagination creates and thus deserves extreme respect if we do not wish to mis-create.

I know you and the artist aren’t intentionally practicing black magic(k), but tapping into creative inspiration and imagination and then focusing those intently into a negative or harmful reality/form is actually the very definition of black magic(k).

Update: please see comments below for an important distinction between Shadow Work and black magick.

“If There’s No Door, Then I’ll Make One!”

Hiromu Arakawa: “If there’s no door, then I’ll make one!” I hear ya, sister and creator of Fullmetal Alchemist.

There have been times in my life when I’ve faced problems so tricky, so “impossible” that the only way out was in. Deeeeeep inside, through the inner rabbit hole, through the spiral and out the newly created portal. In those days, I’d paint a door, and you know what? It worked.

In ways known mostly to me, every single door that lines the walls and corners of our home, created the life I live and love. Carefully coded with Runes, mythology and symbols, these painted portals summoned unlikely realities into being when logic, prayer, and all my best Houdini efforts failed to free me from the chains of limitation.

Well, another door has presented itself for painting, along with another “impossible” situation that needs a way in and out the other side. This one’s more community based than personal, although it affects me as a member of this community. I can see that ordinary means will not resolve this dilemma, which would require undoing generations of programming and replacing those with feelings of overwhelming betrayal and a sense of sadness that people could knowingly try to do such things to one another. I see it; I wish to shift the path so that it leads to freedom instead of the intended trap, but I do not wish to inflict unnecessary pain.

Divine Doorway Number 17 will honor Elen of the Ways ~ the Reindeer Goddess who reactivates the ley lines and reminds us of the Ancient tracks. May painting this portal reveal the Middle Way:

Door 17

There Is a Way

The intellect says: “The six directions are limits: there is no way out.”
Love says: “There is a way. I have traveled it thousands of times.”
The intellect saw a market and started to haggle;
Love saw thousands of markets beyond that market.

Medical Intuitive Observations about Fukushima Radiation

This post has been rolling around in my brain for quite sometime, and I’ve now had several requests to write about it, including in the comments section of “Amazing Orgone.” The paragraphs that prompted the questions were:

“… I was inspired to check for the effects of orgone after listening to some dire reports about Fukushima’s effects on all foods grown in the Northern Hemisphere.

“I track radiation via my own internal Geiger counter, and Leuren Moret’s assessments jive with mine. She recommends using a BioMat, following a macrobiotic diet and many of the things I listed in an earlier article about radiation and diet. From a Medical Intuitive perspective, I’ve also noticed that clients and friends who embody and pass along the most positive healing energies are actually thriving on the Fukushima radiation, whereas ones who refuse to share their spiritual and creative gifts are noticeably struggling, oftentimes from illnesses directly associated with radiation poisoning.

“I keep saying, ‘It’s evolve or die time,’ and I’m not kidding. If you have gifts, please pass them on. As with Reiki, whenever you give a treatment, you receive one, too, because of the positive energy that flows through you. Share your gifts with the world, whatever they are. The process of passing along the good vibrations may well save your life. The energies on this planet are shifting so that they will eventually no longer support parasites and vampiric energies. No time like the present to ensure you’re giving and receiving in balanced ways, and if you must, erring on the side of offering more than you demand in return.”

I need to preface the rest of this article by reminding readers that I am not a nuclear expert, not a doctor, not a scientist, and the only Geiger counter I use is the energy reading mechanism that naturally exists within me. Although I have clients and friends literally on every continent of this world, including in Hawaii, Taiwan, Australia and many on the US West Coast, statistically speaking, these people represent only a very tiny slice of the larger population. I also need to note that my clients and friends tend to be much more conscious and aware than the average population. I do, however, also occasionally interact with people who don’t even know what Fukushima is, who have no idea why we’d want to avoid GMO’s or even what they are, who think “energy work” involves an electrician, and who live paycheck to paycheck from jobs that don’t require them to think beyond the immediately pressing details of their lives. The observations I present in this article include those people, as well, but I’ve obviously had greater opportunity for discussion and energy scans of clients and friends.

All of which is to say: take my observations however you will. I offer them here not as a definitive, provable conclusion, but rather in hopes that they may help people to live more fully, generously and healthily in these extremely challenging and exciting times.

Awareness about Fukushima radiation has begun to trickle into public consciousness, despite a near media blackout, quietly raised official levels of “safe” radiation, the turning off of West Coast radiation monitors, and a new Japanese law that criminalizes reporting about Fukushima. In a sudden switch from the typical media silence, the LA Times recently urged its readers to stop eating Pacific seafood.As a result of growing public alarm about dying, tumor-ridden, starved, ill and/or bleeding sea life off the West Coast, as well as individuals recording extremely high radiation levels via their own Geiger counters, local governments and news media, along with some internet articles have all tried to quell public outcry by assuring us that, though they’re “baffled,” and “mystified” by all these “inexplicable” things happening, they can certainly confirm that none of this has anything to do with Fukushima.

Cleverly, they don’t say it has nothing to do with radiation, just “not from Fukushima.” The creepy part is that it may not matter. Does your body care if radiation comes from Japan or from illegal nuclear dumping off the US Coast? Does your body care if radiation leaks out from Japan or from the nuclear reactor or weapons dump closer to home? We’ve had a nuclear waste issue in this country long before 3/11/11. Due to Fukushima concerns — which imho, are quite real — people have also begun to uncover invisible elephants closer to home. Instead of “either/or,” think “both/and.”

Having lived all along the Central and Northern California Coasts, in addition to the Oregon Coast and Seattle, I’ve been well aware of the pockets of cancer, particularly in Marin County, which has the highest breast cancer rates of anywhere in the nation. Marin is gorgeous, and I loved all the misty magic of that area, so I considered moving there until a friend told me to research breast cancer. Sure enough, Marin County has 38% higher breast cancer rates than most of the US. A regular at the various Cafe Gratitude organic raw food restaurants in Northern California, I always felt vaguely alarmed when I’d see a sign by a donation jar for one of their young, high vibe and organic-raw-food-eating staff in San Rafael undergoing breast cancer treatment. As a Medical Intuitive, I know that many factors contribute to cancer, and extensive studies of Marin County have apparently revealed the same thing. No environmental toxin factors were discovered to account for the absurdly high rates of breast cancer. On the other hand, I do recall reading a study that found clusters of breast cancer closer to water there.

I’ve shared Medical Intuitive Observations on Breast Health before, but I mention the Marin County situation because I’ve intuitively monitored it on occasion since 2008 when I began to formulate a wild theory about radiation and health as it relates to one’s connection to place. At that time, I did sense some kind of radioactive waste coming from somewhere, and I still do; however, I also sensed that some people — not me in this instance, but some — could live in that environment without developing cancer, so long as it was the right place for them to be.

I also noted (and I mean this as no offense to anyone living in Marin County) an odd disconnect between level of Consciousness and level of generosity. Psychics, raw foodists, yoga teachers, channelers and self-proclaimed New Age guru’s are a dime a dozen in Marin County, yet despite what you’d expect to be an atmosphere oozing health and joy, I often felt a palpable contraction of ego, competition and sadness in the air whenever I visited. The consumption of high vibe things was off the charts, but the practical offering of those gifts from high vibe living seemed disproportionately lacking. The passage from Luke 12:48 often came to mind: “But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.” Update: this verse triggered some people due to its seeming judgment, so I am replacing it with a Gospel of Thomas verse that declares more closely what I was originally attempting to convey:

“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.”

Until Fukushima happened, these observations and words just kind of floated around in the realm of curiosity and a possibly isolated scenario, but since Fukushima began dumping untold amounts of radiation into the air and ocean, I’ve noticed these factors becoming much more apparent and consistent. Long ago, I received a message that human evolution would be triggered by a nuclear event. I thought maybe a war, but whenever I encounter someone undergoing radiation treatment or exposure to excessive radiation, I always remember that original message. Radiation triggers mutations. It activates and accelerates potentials, both negative and positive. In November 2013, I commented on Jon Rappoport’s (possibly tongue in cheek?) poem, “Fukushima Man,” which profiles “the one schmuck in fifty million who thrives on radiation”:

“Brilliant! And I have been getting that message for about a decade, maybe more, that radiation mutates with a possibility of TRANSmutation. Evolve or die time. I love this poem.

“In all seriousness, do you think that’s why 30 states have recently created police blockades demanding cheek swabs and blood?

“As a Medical Intuitive, I’m noticing these effects very clearly. The clients who are really stepping into their full beings are thriving on this radiation, even if they live on the West Coast. On the other hand, those who continue to resist the shifts they’ve known they need to make are exhibiting many effects of radiation poisoning. It became really noticeable about six months ago and it has definitely stepped up a notch in recent weeks. Thriving vs. thyroid nodules, hair loss, unexplained weight loss, etc. … But the ones who’ve figured out how to use this radiation as juice are supercharged.

“We do have the means of cleaning up Fukushima — through mushrooms, through a dimensional rift, through a massive healing of the waters and realigning with Nature. It IS possible. Whether or not most people do it is another thing entirely…. Much Love and tangible, loving, healing ACTION is what I keep recommending. Those doing it are thriving. Those not? Not so much….

“Brilliant, brilliant poem.”

What’s frustrating for some of the people struggling with radiation symptoms is that by society’s standards, they seem like people already sharing their gifts. Only they — and people like me who can read their energy — know that they present only a fraction of the value they could offer to the world. They wonder how cancer scares, hair loss, thyroid issues, etc. can be happening to them when they “have studied Reiki,” “meditate” and “think positively” … when they try to live such a “high vibe life” and yet other people in their lives who have no interest in spirituality don’t seem to have these sorts of problems.

Again with the Gospel of Thomas verse: “If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.”

When I ask if they’re offering Reiki, teaching it, sharing their insights from meditation, actively generating positive actions from their positive thinking … I get a bunch of excuses for why “that hasn’t happened. Yet. I’m going to do all of that when ____ [indefinitely postponed future external event resolves].” This pattern involves all energy, including money, which is simply one of our most dysfunctional means of circulating energy into our environment. People who handle large volumes of money need to be especially careful right now how that money passes through them. Do they use the energetic gifts at their disposal to transmute blood money from corrupt institutions into energy that promotes good in this world? Do they invest their own money into generous healing and liberating projects for the Earth and/or their community? If not, then handling all that money energy becomes exponentially toxic to their system.

Ditto all the high vibe lifestyles that summon energy into the body, mind and spirit. After that energy arrives, what happens to it? Cancer is incredibly creative energy. If someone summons massive amounts of energy and then refuses the call to create something positive beyond themselves, then that energy pools inside them and creates malignant, rapidly producing cancer cells. “Pay it forward.” The more you receive, the more evolution requires you to give. No, it’s not fair, and no, you can’t fake it. From the outside, someone can look highly generous, but inside themselves they know they’re really not living and giving anywhere near their full potential. [Please also see the follow up post, “Overgiving, Resentment and Breast Cancer,” which explains in detail what I do and do not mean by generosity and bringing forth what is within you.]

This planet has reached crisis stage largely due to the selfish and oblivious actions of humanity. Consciousness can be taught to people with kind, generous hearts, but selfishness and people who consume as much or more than they return are an evolutionary liability. This trait of excessive consumption is a stronger evolutionary filter than what’s consumed. From an evolutionary standpoint, a gas guzzling redneck who offers everything he has to those in need will pass through easier than a New Age dabbler who collects training and certifications but fails to translate those gifts into tangible offerings to Earth or community. The gas guzzler can be given a new car, but the spiritual energy guzzler who refuses to dirty themselves with nitty gritty compassionate action requires much more internal shifting.

Kindness counts, and radiation amplifies the internal effects of whether or not kindness creates positive things outside oneself or whether it ferments, festers and mutates inside. The Universe does not demand everyone quit his or her day job to become a healer; evolution simply asks that people share what they can where they can, now, without excuses. Art counts. Platitudes don’t.

If someone has the consciousness to recognize how deeply this planet and its various species are struggling and still continues to postpone action, then really … what will it take for change?! If pondering the imminent extinction of life as we know it can’t get that person over the ego concerns or fears of vibrant living and giving, then the greater creative wisdom of this planet will not likely view that person’s particular genetic/spiritual mix as an evolutionary combo to carry forward. The Original Instructions for humanity require us to live in balance with Nature and as caretakers. From an evolutionary standpoint, people who recognize those Original Instructions and yet knowingly neglect or refuse to implement them, are part of the problem, not the solution they smugly consider themselves to be.

The other big factor, unrelated to generosity, but equally important in my observation, is how connected people are to place. When someone feels deeply connected to where they live, their energy interacts with the planet at that location, healing and evolving with the Earth. Many people have felt led to move in recent years, sometimes to hot spots — radioactive or otherwise. By tapping into our specific contract with the land, sea and sky, then we reconnect with the larger whole. Radiation becomes simply one of many, many factors, rather than an overwhelmingly detrimental one. As with generosity, though, we can’t fake it. We’re either connected to where we live, or we would be wise to find some way to get wherever we do belong.

Again, that Gospel of Thomas verse applies: “If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.” Those who lack the conscious awareness to know whether or not they belong somewhere or have a higher calling elsewhere won’t feel the effects of misalignment as much as someone who knows better but refuses to act on the message. Those who recognize the need of this planet and its various species, who know that Spirit supports right action and yet refuse to walk in Faith find themselves struggling right now. This is not a time for fence sitting or talking the talk without walking the walk. I strongly recommend finding ways to connect with the land, sea and sky wherever you are and to ask for guidance and support in getting wherever you feel called to go.

What’s the positive in all of this?

I cannot prove any of this, except as I’ve heard from various “talkers” recently that life has taken a sudden turn for the worse. It seems to improve for them as they invest larger parts of themselves in the areas their heart and soul cry out to support. Whenever they pull back those energies they feel called to express, then the symptoms or life circumstances hammer them again. The more energy someone summons, the greater the effect. The more exposure to radiation — from Fukushima or otherwise — the greater the effect.

“Where there is fear, there is power.” People can shift their attitude and response to fear and tap into huge surges of power to move beyond perceived limitations. Visionaries can tap into their local environment and thereby create a positive feedback loop of radiation and creativity. People can use these intense times to hone awareness of preferences or longings that well up deep from the soul. This is not a time for repression; it’s a time of increased awareness and compassion followed by creative action. Magick, art, volunteer work: whatever positive channels of expression feel right will experience extra juice and transmutation the more radiation we find ourselves exposed to.

And if I’m wrong, and all radiation is completely toxic and unavoidable? Well, then we’re all Fuk’d and we might as well live in ways that invite and invoke miracles and a state of Grace.

“There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.” ~Albert Einstein

“Grace isn’t a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It’s a way to live.” ~Jackie Windspear
