Among Giants

Thanks, Mitch! Below you’ll find an incredible short documentary about tree activists near Eureka, CA — people who protected the Redwoods by actually living in them. I’m struck by the difference between pruning trees to help them grow and the sheer destruction of logging. Having lived in Northern California and Southern Oregon, I’ve witnessed both the majesty of the redwood groves and the landscape’s scars. A handful of people can make a huge difference! Many thanks for their dedication and love for the Tree People and Mother Earth.

From the makers of the film:

“Risking injury and incarceration, an environmental activist disrupts the clear-cutting of an ancient redwood grove by sitting on a tiny platform a hundred feet up in the tree canopy. Already three years into the tree-sit when filming begins, AMONG GIANTS blends vérité cinematography with intimate personal reflection to remarkable effect.

This film was shot and edited in 2011, and a year later, the tree-sit ended as a victory for the tree-sitters (indybay.org/newsitems/2012/06/26/18716373.php) As of 2013, negotiations are still underway for the sale of the land, and the exact acreage is still being determined.

Huge thanks to “Farmer,” “Bingmouse,” “Amanita,” and the rest of the tree-sitters for allowing us to live with them and film their story. Learn more about their work, donate, and see what they’re up to now: efhumboldt.org

Thanks for watching!

A Tribute to the Great Mother

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers, Earth lovers, goddesses, and to those who nurture and love others, whether their own or others’ children.

Joanna Macy ~ The Gifts of Uncertainty

Joanna Macy is my hero. For real, not just an expression. She is truly the woman I most admire, and she embodies the courage, determination, heart, wisdom, compassion, and love for this Earth, humanity and this uncertain moment on our planet, that I try daily to embody in my own little way.

Some days are better than others.

Today, after walking outside and being bombarded by trains, cars, horns, exhaust and blowing trash leftover from this morning’s pickup … after feeling confronted by the ugliness of factories, bare trees, dirty streets and the sad stumps of trees who used to reign supreme on our property before it called to us last Fall … Today, I really needed to hear this Joanna Macy speech. It’s one of the most poignant and inspirational talks I’ve ever heard:

Here’s the Rainer Maria Rilke poem she quotes at the beginning of Part 3:

Quiet friend who has come so far

Part Two, Sonnet XXIX

Quiet friend who has come so far,
feel how your breathing makes more space around you.
Let this darkness be a bell tower
and you the bell. As you ring,

what batters you becomes your strength.
Swaying back and forth into the change.
What is it like, such intensity of pain?
If the drink is bitter, turn yourself to wine.

In this uncontainable darkness,
be the mystery at the crossroads of your senses,
the meaning discovered there.

And if the world has ceased to hear you,
say to the silent Earth: I flow.
To the rushing water, speak: I am.

2013 March Equinox ~ Real Ending of Precessional Cycle

Thanks to KP for bringing this video to my attention.

People sometimes wonder why I don’t post certain announcements, channeled material or calls to group meditations on this blog. Am I just not aware of it? The short answer is that yes, oftentimes I am already aware of the links people send me; however, I still choose not to post that material. We live in a free will universe. We just need to reclaim our own sovereignty before we can reliably exercise that free will. People are free to believe or reject whatever they choose.

This George Kavasillas video reiterates an ongoing message I receive and share:

Get grounded.

Tune in to Mother Earth.

The Earth is rebirthing herself, so tuning into this planet is your best hope and easiest, safest, smoothest strategy to ensure you’re on a positive timeline.

Shining the Light of Truth on hidden Shadows is a positive step; however, inviting in any and all Light for the purpose of expanding the crown chakra can radically unground people. Just like plants with shallow roots, top-heavy chakras result in weak humans. Please use discernment in the coming weeks and months. If something seems too good to be true, it probably is. If something has no grounding in the Earth but comes from the top down, it’s probably not what it appears to be. If something requires all your mental attention to begin to understand it, consider the possibility of it being a distraction. I read vibrations and scan energy. Top-heavy anything raises my hackles, activates my Spidey senses and leaves me unreasonably anxious until I can get my hands back in the dirt or exercise extreme clearings of body, mind, spirit and emotions.

Trust your body. The body and emotions know far more than we give them credit for. If fear or an internal warning system comes up, don’t just repress those feelings. Fear is not a terrible thing. Yes, it is much maligned by New Age thought, but fear does have a purpose. It lets us know when we need to be careful. It lets us know to sniff things out, get quiet, go inside ourselves, go outside in Nature. If you feel fear, anxiety or uneasiness, don’t just dismiss those feelings. You are wiser than you think, precisely because you do feel.

Exploring fear and its manifestations as potential warnings allows you to approach life as a whole being, from all the levels. Yes, you may find that it’s just ego throwing a tantrum. Now you know. … But … if it turns out there’s more to it, or if you find your rational, researching, evaluating side now agrees with your intuition, well, then … you’ve got more to explore before committing to some “gift.” Follow the power trail when someone you don’t know insists on giving you a handout. Pray for clarity and discernment when someone calls you a troll or scoffs at you for not believing the latest, greatest revelation, prophecy, prediction, system that ends all systems, or some new/old Messiah/martyr spin.

We are in transition to a potentially very positive cycle. Those who know how to ground themselves, develop an intimate relationship with the Earth, and honor their own and others’ sovereignty will thrive. Please pay attention to your body, your feelings, your intuition, and to your own sense of integrity (integration) before giving everything away to your mind or spirit. Desperation or the perceived need for (or promise of) someone saving you are big red flags!

We each have an opportunity to become whole again — really, to recognize our own wholeness. “Divide and conquer” has been the way of this world for far too long. “Divide and conquer” applies not just to nations, political parties and religions, but to individual units as well. Beware the “One World” solution that demands you reject cherished parts of your being in favor of a generic de-individualized humanoid soup. “Uniquely You, Divinely One” is not the same as Collectivism. What George calls “False Light” is not the same as the Light of Truth. You do know the difference. Grounding and clearing yourself will make that difference obvious to you. Then you can use these energies to empower your fullest potential.

As George says:

“It is a momentous and pivotal time in our journeys and is unfortunately either being forgotten by many or hijacked by others for their own nefarious purposes. We are most certainly on the cusp of a most auspicious time in our lives.

“Enjoy and shine your beautiful authentic and organic Soul Light Essence.”

What Can You Do?

This post is a long time coming, although in many ways, I’ve been piecemealing out the information as I feel led. Clients, blog readers, friends and family who have begun to wake up keep asking me, “What can we do?” They either feel overwhelmed by the challenges ahead of them, or overwhelmed by day-to-day living and obligations. They would love to contribute to a positive collective timeline, but a) they don’t understand what the heck a timeline is and/or b) they don’t see how the “little” things in their sphere of influence could possibly have much impact on the bigger picture.

Regarding the timelines, parallel universes and reality creation: these are not things you will likely understand with a 3D brain from a 3D perspective — unless — you actively engage the ideas with a temporary suspension of disbelief. With practice and careful attention to your feelings and senses, nudges followed by inspired action, and by watching the eventual manifestations, you will begin to intuit how things work for you. There are general guidelines, but what matters most to you? An abstract ability to explain things in scientific or “normal” terms, or the consistent ability to get where you’d most love to go? I try to work in a few posts here and there that include scientific support for such theories, as well as Abraham-Hicks videos and messages, Dolores Cannon‘s research from 1000’s of deep trance hypnotherapy clients, forgotten wisdom from Avalon and the Druids, as well as Mayan prophecies … but that’s just to give your left brain something to chew on while the rest of you gets back to experiencing. 😉

Experience and experiment share the same root, and people most truly feel they know something by experiencing it for themselves. With repeat experiments, you begin to know what works for you. By sharing your results with others engaged in similar experiments, you begin to know an even bigger picture of how things work. Will your left brain be able to explain it to everyone else? Not necessarily. But you will start to have a lot of very interesting stories, synchronicities, “Divine interventions,” and positive manifestations. You will also start to notice that your attitude and attention exert influence over what “happens” in your external reality. You don’t need to explain yourself; you can simply live your results and let the results speak for themselves.

Remember that Joseph Campbell quote? “Follow your bliss, and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.” You can think of those doors as portals to other timelines, parallel universes or even new universes created by the big bang of your wanting, followed by positive feelings and attention to what you want. You don’t need to know which you’ve done, i.e. if you’ve hopped a timeline, created a new universe or jumped into a parallel reality. With practice, you might develop such awareness, but in practical terms, the reliable ability to create and embrace what you’d most love to experience is more important (and more interesting to non-believers) than all the explanations in the world.

Eventually, even the logical mind admits that the results speak for themselves. The “show me” and “prove it” parts can no longer deny consistent results. As Gandhi said, “You must become the change you wish to see in the world.” Instead of preaching with your words, actually follow through on what you know. Latch onto your bliss and let it take you to destinations beyond your left brain’s wildest expectations. Become a whole-brained individual who is logical enough to allow whatever works best to become the dominant method.

OK, fine, but what can we do about our collective reality? I see all these government regulations and radiation, pollution and the threat of Earth Changes. I’m not a gazillionaire with tons of influence. What can I do in daily life to help the situation?

Never underestimate the power of tiny shifts of attitude and attention when you have flowing through you the power to create universes. And we all do have that power flowing through us! Use those negatives you know you absolutely do not want to help you figure out the positives that you do want. If you don’t want to live in a police state, then focus on freedom — especially freeing yourself from your own personal, inner police state. If you want to live in freedom from your government, then you can start by giving yourself permission to be yourself. Allow yourself to honor your preferences. Allow yourself to express your inner truth.

The irony of censorship is that most people gag themselves so tightly that they don’t need any kind of external crackdown. They’re afraid even to voice certain thoughts and desires inside their own mind. You don’t need Thought Police when you are your own 24-7 Thought Police, denying or postponing everything that makes you feel alive and joyful. Censorship of the press and controlled media are doing this world a favor by encouraging people to value freedom of expression. That freedom doesn’t come from your government. It comes from yourself. Let your creative juices flow and make a painting, form a pot, or arrange some flowers. Share your gifts with yourself and with the world. Allow yourself to journal about things you truly desire. Stop censoring yourself, and you will find that the media and government cooperate. As within, so without. When you don’t want something manifesting outside you, address and then shift anything inside you that resonates with it. When nothing in you resonates with that “reality,” then and only then, will those scenarios leave your experience.

Yeah, but what about those Dark Goddess energies you keep mentioning? Is Mother Earth really that pissed off at us?

Mother Earth loves you, but she can only handle so much abuse. She knows she needs to heal, and she will do it whether you cooperate or not. Make no mistake: she loves you. If she can cleanse, heal and ascend while still having you on board, she will do so. She is, however, committed to her own survival. If you, and the rest of humanity, continue to abuse her, you leave her no choice but to leave you behind.

It’s no different than the battered woman who attends therapy and keeps showing up in the emergency room due to a husband who ridicules, devalues, and beats her. Maybe she stays for the children. Maybe she stays because she doesn’t feel strong enough to leave. At some point, she realizes that if things don’t change, that husband will kill her. If she wants to live, then she will leave because she’s tried everything else in her power. At that point, the Dark Goddess energies kick in to help her. She becomes not the meek, abused little puppy, but the growling Mama Bear who will protect herself and the innocent cubs no matter what stands in her way. Emphasis on innocent. If you are participating in the abuse, then you are not innocent. Most of humanity participates in the abuse on a daily if not hourly basis. Witnessing abuse when you have the power to stop it makes you culpable. Renouncing your power so that you “can’t” (read “won’t”) take the actions you know you can and must take puts you in a position of one who gets left behind, no matter how much that abused Mother loves you. She can’t afford to have people devalue her and passively or actively endorse her abusers.

Mama Earth is approaching Mama Bear time. She doesn’t particularly want to throw off the humans, but she needs to know that things are changing. For real this time. No more hollow words without a radical shift in perspective. No more disrespect. She’s trying to heal and give birth at the same time. She’s like a pregnant, abused mother who has cancer and is trying to give birth — all at once. She’s strong, but she can and will no longer tolerate being kicked, humiliated, raped and poisoned while she’s working to save her own life and birth a new reality. Can you blame her?

This all sounds dire, but it doesn’t need to be. The collective can shift right this very moment. We can “get” it, see Gaia for who and what she is, express our gratitude and love. We can create organic gardens. We can thank weeds like dandelion and nettles for nourishing and purifying the soil. We can thank seaweed for purifying the oceans.

We can stop supporting all GMO foods. Period. Just stop. Yes, this will result in a very different way of grocery shopping. Yes, this will result in mind-altering awakenings and spontaneous healing. Yes, this will result in going more local and cutting back on fossil fuels, BigAg and BigPharma. Any questions? These are the kinds of shifts we need to make right now. And we can. If you can’t see yourself getting rid of all GMO foods right now, then take a tiny, conscious step in that direction. Have an organic salad for lunch twice per week, or grow a windowsill pot of your own basil for pesto. Spend a Saturday morning at your local farmer’s market. Just do something that resonates with a healing, loving, natural and honoring direction. And keep adding to that something.

Want to do more? Talk to the Elementals and converse with the Elements. Send healing energy to the waters of this planet. Dr. Emoto has shown that water responds to words and intentions. Start sending them. Start saying Ho’o Pono Pono to the water. “I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.” Say that to the Earth. And mean it! Thank the flowers and the bees. Gratitude heals. Walk barefoot on the Earth. Feel yourself connecting to that energy. Send and receive love through your feet. Take a gardening, herb, and/or wild foraging class. Get some plant and nature books out of your local library and actually read them. Stand in the rain and let it pour over you. Sit in the sunshine and appreciate how the planet responds. Feel yourself as the bridge you are between heaven and earth.

Want to do even more? Practice responsible creation. If you know that thoughts create reality and you don’t like what you see, start looking for what you’d love to see. Walk outside and appreciate the beauty of your neighborhood. Even if you live in the city, you can find natural elements to love. Central Park offers diverse, wild Nature, right in the middle of NYC. You probably have purslane, dandelions, plantain or chicory growing in your sidewalk cracks. You’ve got flowers shamelessly announcing their sexuality and joy for all the world to see. Emulate them. You are beautiful, but you will be even more beautiful if you can find and honor yourself without feeling ashamed of who and what you are.

Want to do even more than that? Sing. Invite sacred chants and mantras into your life and belt those melodies into land, sea and sky. Music is all numbers, and numbers are the universal language. Frequency. Sing your heart out. Isn’t that what the angels do? Think of yourselves as Earth Angels, actively creating harmony and balance through every thought, word and deed.

Can you do more? Of course you can! How much do you love your Mother? How much do you love yourself? How much do you love each other? Show it. Little gestures, big gestures: size doesn’t matter in this case. Just start showing and being Love. YOU are IT.

I will leave you with this sincere and fervent prayer to the Goddess for forgiveness. It’s as good a place to start as any:

Happy Earth Day!

Dear Mama Earth,

Thanks for putting up with the humans a little longer. May we listen to you, your creatures and your trees, and may we all live in harmony with each other. Many of us love you so very deeply, and the ones who don’t would if they were even a tiny bit in touch with you. Please help them to know you, so the forgetful humans will remember who they are. Then we can all live in peace, abundance, love, playfulness and joy.

Lots of tree hugs, faery kisses, pixie dust and mama love,

Laura Bruno

PS: I knew I was saving this photo for some special occasion. I call it “Tree Pose with Tree,” and it’s for you. I love you, Gaia. You can do it: your rebirth is gonna be fabulous!

Earth Changes and Dietary Shifts

I sooooo did not want to write this post, but it just keeps rolling around my brain. Whenever I manage to quiet those words, I stumble upon some other (formerly) raw vegan website extolling the virtues of meat. When I stop reading blogs, I get phone calls from vegan clients asking why, oh why do they “suddenly crave chicken”? Why are their guides, their trusted guides, showing them “platefuls of fish and vegetables” whenever they ask for healing? Why do they feel the seductive pull of eggs and … bone broth?

Needless to say, these shifts have caused some sparks to fly on the vegan and raw vegan circuit. When “Raw Model” Anthony Anderson went public in 2009 about drinking raw goat milk kefir, some people congratulated him and others freaked out. Since that time, many, many former proponents of an exclusively raw and vegan diet have shifted, either publicly or privately to something radically … different.

I have lots of clients interested in raw and vegan foods, and I have lots of high raw friends. Heck, I even wrote a book called, “The Lazy Raw Foodist’s Guide,” which details not just one, but many raw-friendly paths. Because of my Medical Intuitive gifts and my involvement in raw and vegan foods, people keep asking me to comment. Please consider this article my comment. 🙂

A key feature of “The Lazy Raw Foodist’s Guide” is a chapter called “Finding Your Why.” To begin, I’ll quote part of that section here:

“Your why comes before your way. In fact, your why comes before anything! Before we go any further, take a moment to define your why. Why did you decide to read this book? Why do you feel drawn to explore raw foods?

“Finding your why makes any journey easier and more direct. When you know your why, you can more clearly weigh your options. When you know your why, you can better handle distractions and temptations. When you know your why, you can dead reckon your way.

“Wikipedia defines ‘dead reckoning’ as ‘the process of estimating one’s current position based upon a previously determined position, or fix, and advancing that position based upon known speed, elapsed time, and course.’

“I first learned about dead reckoning from a helicopter pilot whose GPS malfunctioned. He explained that if you know where you’ve been and you know where you want to go, then you can find stopover points along the way. You can take shorter journeys and reassess the progress on your longer journey each time you pause. As long as you have a clear idea of where you’ve been and at least a vague idea of where you’d like to go, then you can hop, skip and jump your way to your destination.

“Does dead reckoning always work? Well, that depends on your perspective! Christopher Columbus intended to reach India and dead reckoned his way to America instead. Miscalculations of his estimated speed led him somewhere completely unexpected, but he got there by following what he viewed as his intended course. Mistake or inspiration?

“I wonder how many great discoveries happen by ‘accident.’

“In exploring your why, you do not need to pick a final, unchangeable answer right now. It just helps to know your current motivation. You can change your why or correct course at any stopover points along the way.

“Perhaps you initially choose raw food for health reasons. Maybe you suffer from chronic fatigue, cancer or fibromyalgia and have heard stories about the miracle raw food diet. Or maybe an intuitive spark just says, ‘Do this, and don’t ask questions! You’ll see why later.’ In that case, you still have an initial why: you’re following your intuition. As a Medical Intuitive, I would say that’s one of the greatest whys you can ever have! …”

I wrote the Lazy Raw Foodist’s Guide in 2008, and truth be told, I’m too lazy to go through it and update all my personal details. I don’t live in California anymore. I’m not married anymore. I’m no longer researching my novel because I’ve already published it. I also opted not to change all the contributors’ personal details, because we are all on a continuing journey. What’s personally accurate at the moment of publication may not always remain true. I prefer to let people tell their own stories, and readers can find those stories by following the included links.

Aside from the lazy factor, though, I decided not to revise The Lazy Raw Foodist’s Guide because I still very much believe in its premise. I wrote that ebook in answer to so many of the same questions from clients and friends. I wanted to share basic, often overlooked information that would help others take responsibility for their own dietary choices and health. This remains my mission, and I’ve never advocated a single diet for all people — or even a single, unchanging diet for one person! People change. Situations change. Earth Changes!

And so, rather than advocating or condemning one particular way of eating, I thought I’d focus on the big underlying questions of “why can’t I be vegan anymore?” “why now?” and “why such a worldwide trend?” I’m also receiving a run of questions from people who never viewed themselves as veg-friendly, wondering how and why on Earth they’re feeling led to a meat-free lifestyle now. In all cases, the shift itself seems to cause more internal agony than what foods people actually end up choosing. We tend to define ourselves by what we eat, especially once dietary choices become “ethical.”

Introducing consciousness around food can alter us in positive ways from the inside out. We are what we eat. Food can affect our vibration, the clarity with which we send and receive information, and how we build our cells. But we are also much more than what we eat!

For many people, going high raw, 100% raw or juice feasting/fasting allowed them to get back in touch with their own intuition. It also plugged them in to a ready made community (even if just online) of people interested in natural living, planet Earth, holistic healing, spirituality, art, and visionary thinking. Gaining strength in numbers and confidence through weight loss, an improved appearance and a sense of being on the cutting edge accounted for much of the explosion of raw veganism in 2007 and 2008. And don’t forget the cacao! Regardless of personal stance on raw chocolate(poison or panacea?), it’s difficult to imagine raw food having caught on so thoroughly without these pods, powders and nibs of bliss.

So what changed?

Hey, what hasn’t? The shifts between 2008 and 2011 have been incredible. Bill Clinton turned vegan. Oprah did a 30-day vegan challenge. Kris Carr became a bestselling author and sensational speaker. Some Starbucks carry Two Mom’s in the Raw Granola. On the other hand, we’ve got the FDA and its European counterpart approving GM foods, not requiring them to be labeled, and inexplicably declaring things like mesquite a “novel” food. Um… GM alfalfa is new — and approved — but mesquite, the traditional Native American food consumed for centuries, has just been declared “novel” and therefore no longer legally sold in Europe. In April of this year, Europe will also crack down on the legal sale of herbs, many of which have been used for millenia.

I’ve written about this dynamic before in my article, “Monsanto, DNA and Evolutionary Backwash,” but the dynamic plays out in other ways. The people ruling this world may be all manner of icky, self-centered-things-that-make-ya-go-ewwww, but one thing they know is the Law of Attraction. Get people in fighting mode about foods and people start attracting fights all over the place. Pretty soon they’re in-fighting amongst themselves. This faction of highly prolific online writers formerly united by food and a reasonably collective, more idyllic vision of the world, starts to break down. They get distracted. And then Big Pharma, the FDA and the powerful few continue to slip things in to control and exploit the many.

It really doesn’t take much to create a downward manifestation spiral, especially when dealing with people who’ve awakened to their own intuitive and manfestation gifts. You always attract what you most think about, but people who’ve managed to amp up their vibes and practice creating in big ways, attract more dramatic things, and they attract these dramatic things faster. The Bible has a saying that’s always jumped out at me, “from those to whom much has been given, much will be required.” During most of my life, my response went something like this, “Um, I don’t know that I can meet those requirements, so maybe just don’t give me so much, OK?” Multiple head injuries and a decade as a Medical Intuitive later, I’ve come to accept both the gifts and the joys of regiving and forgiving. I’ve watched countless others do the same, including many prominent raw food bloggers, authors and speakers.

Here’s the tricky part that so many people find themselves navigating right now: Sometimes the effort to eat without harming anyone or anything ends up harming oneself, either through nutritional deficiencies, self-judgment, or both. In that case, the concept of unconditional compassion becomes even more important. Taking into account all the known factors and options, consider offering your decision for the highest good of all. It may be that the effort, energy, cost and attention required to keep you most compassionate in one area, ultimately detracts so much of what you have to offer in other areas that the choice becomes obvious. Being OK with that choice then becomes a practice in non-attachment and a willingness to do whatever you need to do in order to create the world you love.

February 10, 2011 marked the first day of the last cycle of the Mayan Calendar. No one really knows what this means because the outcome remains in flux. We as individuals and especially as a collective consciousness exert such powerful influence over how this “shift” goes down. Will it be peaceful? Will mass disasters destroy civilization? Will we realize it as a unique event or will things just slowly seem different? I don’t know. It really depends a great deal on personal and mass consciousness. Do we focus on love or fear? Unconditional compassion or judgment? How we choose to live our moments, adding one on top of another, gradually moves mountains. The shift will happen, but how it happens depends a great deal on what we allow to engage our imagination.

Regarding vegans eating animal products again: I view this as a temporary means of rooting extra deep into the Earth — of getting extra grounded and physically charged in order to blast into a totally different vibe. Along with the move towards animal products, the concept of “grounding” gets thrown around a lot these days. “Walk barefoot.” “Protect yourself from EMF’s.” “Hug a tree.” “Heal and ground yourself with a crystal Biomat.” In addition to grounding, we hear all sorts of things about minerals. Shilajit, chaga, reishi, and Himalayan Sea Salt have become so popular because of their deep, rich mineral content. Where do minerals come from? Deep inside the Earth.

Intuitively, I feel this trend towards animal products illustrates more about the intense call to ground ourselves than about health issues or a sudden disregard for animal welfare. Health issues may present the final, irrefutable nudge for some people, but overall I see a trend of humanity needing to reconnect and fasten themselves tightly to the Earth. Part of this makes sense, as we have been disconnected for millenia from an additional chakra that runs about six feet beneath the surface of the Earth. Known as the Telluric Current, this energy forms a grid that can connect us all to deep Earth love and wisdom.

I feel this is an evolutionary step, but not the final destination. In order for a tree to grow tall and strong, it needs strong roots. It may need to reach down deep in order to find the water and nutrients it needs for thriving in a harsh environment. As a species, we are living in a harsh environment right now. We are looking to “Ascend” or reach higher and higher. In order to do so under harsh conditions, some of us will need to reach extra deep. In some cases this means emotionally. In others it may mean physically. If we hold onto a greater vision of the world we’d love to create, then the question becomes are we willing to do whatever it takes to bring that world into being? Are we willing to do what it takes to strengthen our resolve, even if the means seem counterintuitive? Are we willing to follow the still small voice inside that knows where to step on each leg of the journey? Are we willing to have faith — by definition “a sure and certain belief in things unseen?”

I also invite you to consider the energy around self-judgment and limiting what we consider acceptable or unacceptable foods for ourselves. We live in an age when the government continues to usurp our rights to eat whatever we want to eat and grow our own organic foods. The FDA routinely raids dairies who make raw milk available to people who use it for healing purposes, and the FDA tries to regulate or eliminate all manner of herbs and natural supplements that could help people heal on their own. If we long for freedom of choice, then the vibe of personal denial sends out a cross message. We may ask for freedom, but a body that craves a food that the mind denies it begins to vibe with “we the people who no longer have access to the foods we want and need.” We are powerful creators, and we need to consider what we really, truly want to manifest — staying vigilant that our dominant feelings align with what we say we want to create.

To summarize, I do and I don’t know why so many vegans have recently turned to animal products. Each person has his or her own story and unique circumstances. But when I notice a global trend that happens to coincide with other global trends, I find it interesting. Can I prove the Telluric Current exists? Nope, not yet anyway. Are others aware of it? You betcha. Humans are set to make an evolutionary leap that will transform everything about planet Earth. Why do you think those in control spend so much time and energy trying to manipulate our DNA with GM foods, pesticides, GM organisms, etc.? Yeah, they have power. But we — you and me and each person you know — have more. We have the power of our minds, our hearts and our imaginations. As Buddha says, “All that we are is the result of what we have thought.”
