A Full Ride

These blue skies that seem to float above me are teeming with birds.  It is spring, and turf wars as well as unbridled enthusiasm fill the air.  It is a gorgeous day.

It’s been more than a month since there was a palpable shift in frequency and the changes are still coming fast and furious.

In a single week of March, four people in my family were hospitalized.  Since then, there have been several more accidents, illnesses and losses.  A lot of us are having a very hard time.  Things are not exactly the same; that much is clear.

And yet, well, they are. The backyard birds squabble over nest space, the children at school struggle to be noticed, while the tulips push their way through the rock hard ground in order to meet the sun.  Life moves on, it is up to us to keep up with its constant motion.

Letters from friends are giving me a picture of what is going on for us.  This is how it looks from here.

Those of us reading this blog and similar sources have been here for a while.  We came to assist in this shift.  Many of us were called into active duty a few years ago.  It seemed that night after night we’d be engaged in struggles and/or battles.  These are the Warrior Angels.  Those conflicts ended.  The choice was made.  This earth is ours to run.

With active duty completed, what comes next?  What is left?  This is the “Boots on the Ground” work we all came for as well, and it’s not a walk in the park. 

As these new vibratory energies envelop us, we have to learn new ways to walk without tripping.  There are many around us who could use a steady hand.

We know what’s happening and it’s beyond a virus, illness or random accident.  Our world has shifted and if we intend to stay on it, we have to change how we do, well, everything.

Those of us used to fighting?  It’s time to lay down our weapons.  This is not a war.  It is collaboration.  You will not like everyone.  Yet everyone will have to figure out how to be.  Together.  Not all of us are choosing to stay.  That has to be okay.  If you are here for the full ride, be prepared.  You will be surprised at who hangs with you and who doesn’t. 

Things feel different and you feel like doing different things.  Honor those feelings.  Resistance is futile and throws you into a situation you’d rather avoid.  Follow the path of least resistance.  Go with the flow.

It is uncomfortable and scary even.  There is not a simple resolution to anything.  There’s not anyone else who has faced what you are now looking at.  Trust yourself.

You came to participate in the shift and now serve as a model for everyone who is watching.  It’s like you are on a treadmill and someone is behind a wall, out of sight, randomly changing speeds.  You need to think on your feet, access the odds of successful navigation and try a new way to move.  You might fall off.  You might not.  Regardless, you’ll learn what works and keep going forward.

One of the things in my heart now, with all of this pain, loss, illness and physical death showing up is – What does it all mean?  Why do some things seem tragic and evoke sadness and grief? 

Life itself, as seen in physical form, is regarded as solitary, precious and to be preserved no matter what.  In that frame of mind, what is seen as death is always tragic.
 
This is not as life actually operates.  What is “temporary” is the specific physical form – not life.  Life is always.  We are always.  Our relationship with each other is always.

As we cooperate with this new frequency, we’ll have easier access to our expanded self. We are surrounded with life; not all of it is seen with our physical eyes.  There have always been among us, those tuned in to all of life – the seers, prophets, psychics and mystics.  This vibratory change we are feeling will give us the same access.  Trust what you feel and hear.  You will know.

A week ago we lost our cat.  It was difficult for all sorts of reasons.  Yet, minutes after he passed, in the car on the drive home actually, I felt him with more clarity than I had in fifteen years.  He was, in that instant, not a ten pound ball of white and orange fur, but huge.  His energy was powerful and distinct – “You did the only thing you could have. It was my choice.  Yes, we know each other.  We’ll meet again.”

I know it sounds weird, but I’m getting used to sounding weird.  Guess it’s a sign of the shift.  ;-)  If weirdness brings peace and a sense of comfort, then bring it on.  I don’t’ know what else will change yet I’ve come to expect it.  Perhaps I’m getting used to the shifts in speed.  I’m not falling off as much.  When I do, I allow the full experience to roll through me with all the force that it has; the pain, the tears, the passion, the joy, the anger – whatever.  I am here for the full ride.



I suspect you may be too.  If March and April are any indication, it’s going to be wild.  Hang on.  This is why you came.  We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.

With all my love,

Lanto: Shine Your Radiance

Acended Master Lanto - Engraving

Master Lanto: Shine Your Radiance
Channeled by Fran ZepedaApril 23, 2015 

Greetings, I AM Master Lanto, greeting you from afar, yet right next to you in your field of Light if you allow me.

I wish to speak to you about Radiance. Radiance is comprised of many things. Exalt within your own Radiance, for it is the spark that drives your Soul. It is YOU in your essential form. It is All-That-Is.

You are awash in your own Radiance when you bow to yourself and accept all that is YOU in its purest form: LOVE. Loving yourself and accepting yourself is key, as you well know. But do you live it day in and day out — Moment by Moment….In the NOW?

Every flaw, every obstacle, every struggle, every seeming impediment of your Happiness, is indeed only LOVE attempting to take hold on a deeper level of YOU.

And this brings us to your core, your essence. Do you think that it is devoid of Radiance just because you encounter unhappy times, or struggles? No…it is Radiance waiting to be revealed and embraced and accepted by you. Dear ones, I cannot stress enough to you that YOU ARE RADIANCE in full glory when you allow yourselves to be so. It is as simple as that, and as complex as that.

And while that may appear to be a paradox, consider this: Have you noticed that just looking at something with a certain attitude will color it with that attitude? You all know this. So why not color everything with your Joy, with your Peace, with your Love, with your exaltedness, your bubbling effervescent spark — Your Radiance — lying under the surface of all that judgment and skewing of the fact that you are all essentially Pure and Radiant, for you are a child of God, of Creator, All-That-Is, however you wish to term it.

Take that concept now and envelop and embrace it within you now. Look at your feelings about yourself right now. Look at your environment right now. What do you feel/see? Be honest. Now consider what that seeming reality would be if you accepted that you are the Divine and that all around you is a projection of the Divine. What would it look/feel like now? It is different, is it not?

You see, when you accept that you are as much of the Divine that Creator is, as much of the Divine as Yeshua, as Jesus, when he walked the Earth, or any of the Ascended Masters are, you begin to fan the flame of your divinity even more, so that it takes over your reality as you see it now. This shift is called Enlightenment and you can have it now…you DO have it now by accepting and basking in the Radiance that is You….the spark of your divine essence become manifest.

What douses your Divine Flame is your judgment, is your doubt, and is your fear that you could be as Radiant as all the Ascended Masters and Archangels are, as Creator is. You ARE, dear ones.

So Shine, dear ones, Shine your Radiance in everything you do and think and say, and I will be with you in counterpart as you lift from the struggles of everyday life, only a sign post to the destination of becoming fully engorged in Radiance.

I leave you with a Prayer to help you in this endeavor:

‘Divine Self, I AM Presence, grant me the pleasure of knowing you in full. Grant me the pleasure of being my guiding light in everything I do, in everything I see, in everything I experience. 
‘For thou is the glory that resides within me. It is in no other place. I AM the Divine. I AM the Radiance. Allow it to emerge more fully with each breath I take, with each step I take, with each struggle I encounter, and with each endeavor I attempt. 
‘And let it be known that all shall be colored with this Divine Radiance that I AM, forever and always. 
And so it is.’

So beloveds, Remember I hold you in the highest esteem. Your Radiance draws me to you and allows me to share my Love and Radiance, allowing your days to be filled with all the Light that you can hold.

Namaste.

I AM Master Lanto in Fullness of Radiance, as are YOU.

In Transition #1




Building s New “House” For Our SOUL

Greetings. I am Suzanne Lie/ I am starting a series called “In Transition.” There are so many things that are changing so quickly in our lives. And our consciousness and our bodies are having a very difficult time keeping up with all these changes.

When I was a child my father was a contractor. I used to go with him to his job sites, and I would see houses in all the different stages of formation. I remember the first stage was when there was just a piece of concrete on the ground, and it looked so small. I would look at the concrete and say, “this could not possibly be a house, and it’s far too small.”

Then they would put up the wood framing for the house, and I could the framing or each room. Now the house looked even smaller, and it looked like a maze. The fun part was that I could go through the walls. There were no barriers between the rooms. There was just a bunch of tall boards that stuck up from the foundation.

As a child I would wander through all these different passageways and try to imagine what this would look like when it was a house, because it didn’t even begin to look like a house yet. Then the roof would come on. The walls would come on and it would start to look more like a house.

At this point I would begin to realize that even though it didn’t look like a house at all when it first started – it began to look like a house as it started to have walls and a roof. However the roof did not provide any protection because it was just more long rows of lumber, the potential for something that was going to happen.

At first I didn’t know what was going to happen. But I knew I had to be careful because there were all kinds of things that I couldn’t step on, things I couldn’t touch and things I had to be careful that might fall over.

I’m telling you this story because it is much like our path to Ascension. When we are on the physical, we perceive ourselves as very small and just one little human. Then as slowly we begin to go through this great process of transformation into our true Lightbody self, things begin to change. But we don’t know what those things are.

We suddenly know that our old foundations don’t work anymore and that we need to build a new foundation. So many of us are leaving our old jobs and working for ourselves. We realize that we don’t have to do what we don’t want to do, and we are not going to do what we don’t want to do.

But we don’t really know exactly what we want to do, even though we’re very clear on what we don’t want to do. So therefore we have to be willing to go through the process of just laying down the blueprint. I also remember looking at my father’s blueprint. I thought they were very interesting because they were blue with white lines written on them.

In Transition Part 2 - Remodeling--The Arcturians

Remodeling

Have you ever remodeled your home while you are living in it? If you have, you can understand how chaotic that can be. What is occurring with our grounded ones is that you are all in the process of remodeling your earth vessel while you are living in it.

From our viewpoint, we can perceive how our volunteer’s earth vessels are surrounded by fifth-dimensional light. This light is causing gradual and/or rapid changes in your physical form, consciousness and perceptions of reality. Hence, you are having many unique thoughts and emotions.

You are remodeling your earth vessel while you are still using it “24/7,” as you would say. Furthermore, each of you has is a slightly different version of the ONE and are expressions versions of your Multidimensional SELF.

Even with all these differences, many of those who are the first to remember and transmute actually know each other in the higher dimensions. Some you are Shipmates and/or family members from other incarnations, but you may or may not meet each other in the physical.

Some of you did made a pact to “meet up in your earth vessel,” not knowing that you would likely forget that pact once you were wearing a 3D form. Fortunately, as your fifth dimensional Lightbody begins to flash into and out of your awareness, you are beginning to remember. Then you forget, and then you remember.

You see you are in the process of recalibration of every component of your consciousness, which is the first to change. Some of you will next shift your body and some of you will shift your life first and your body next. Some of you will shift your body and your life simultaneously.

There is NO right or wrong way to transmute back into your SELF because this event is completely novel for your planet. Dear Gaia has been waiting for millennia beyond count for the transmutation of Her planetary body. This transmutation is becoming evident to even the most uninformed. Each belief system has their own reason why this change is happening, and each belief system will experience what they expect.

Of course, there are those who will wake up one day on another planet in another system that is NOT on the edge of the shift. They will not be conscious of this change because they were not conscious of the changes within their self or within Gaia. They were not conscious of these changes because it is not their NOW to transmute.

Since third dimensional reality is actually a holographic projection that is cast onto a 3D matrix, shifting from one matrix to another is of little consequence to those who live the life of the matrix rather than the life of the planet.

Earth is now experiencing a shift in Her 3D matrix, as it is expanding into the higher frequencies of Her multidimensional matrix. Those who remain aligned with the frequency shift within the planet will move into the higher dimensional frequencies of the matrix.

We understand that this information may be very unfamiliar to many. In fact, it likely seems impossible to those who are thinking with their third dimensional brain. However, as your consciousness continually expands to be able to perceive higher frequencies of reality, many concepts that were once impossible become possible, current and/or normal.

We ask you all to allow your innate, multidimensional thinking to return to your consciousness. To make this cognitive shift, you must release all fear of judgment from “others.” If you look back into your Earth history, you will see that new thinkers were often judged and even persecuted.

Since, your memory of what you call “past lives” returns with your higher states of consciousness, old memories of persecution for novel thinking can limit your ability to “let go” of your old thinking. However, you will realize when your thinking is limited because you will begin to experience a restriction in your body and/or a sense of limitation in your thoughts and emotions.

As long as you realize that these feelings are not a warning of pending doom, but your own body and emotions telling you that your thinking is causing you discomfort. The mastery of your thoughts is one of the first steps in your return to your true, sense of SELF.

You have lived many incarnations believing that you are the human you are wearing and feeling like a victim to your environment. Therefore, whenever those old feelings come up to the surface of your consciousness, do not judge yourself. Instead, rejoice that you can recognize that these emotions have stemmed from your negative thinking.

Also, your emotions and bodily sensation of change can activate negative thinking. What exactly is “negative thinking?” That may appear to be an unusual question, but you may not be aware that you have been trained to think negatively for so many incarnations that it has become “normal.” As you continue to remodel your house while you live in it, you will find many hidden secrets that you have kept from your self.

If you have lost a loved one and had to go through their possession to decide what to “do” with them, you know that that is one of the most difficult parts of your grief. Suzille spent six year watching one parent die and then the other. The experience of going into a home where someone knew they were dying, but were too brave to admit it, created a deep wound in her psyche.

It was not until they had both crossed and she had to clear out EVERY THING from the house that they had lived in for many decades that she could feel what had become “normal.” For all those years she had “pushing aside the truth” to make someone feel better. How often have you had to push aside the truth to make yourself, or someone else, feel better?

You will be able to answer that question more and more as your consciousness becomes calibrated from the Truth of the fifth dimension. Remember, you have been living in the Illusion of polarity and separation for many incarnations. Therefore, you have developed certain habits that allow you to ignore your real experience and focus on the most comfortable illusion.

As your “home” becomes re-wired with the new electrical circuitry, you will be able to physically perceive the difference between an illusion and a truth. An illusion, which is only an attachment to the 3D Matrix, has very little life force. Therefore, illusions have a fuzzy aura and often shift or change.

On the other hand, Truth has a strong aura that enters your awareness even before you become aware of it. In other words, the truth proceeds it self. Illusions cover a situation like a gauze curtain so that the details are blurred. Since the details, physical, mental or emotional are blurred into each other, you will primarily perceive that which best resonates to your consciousness.

Thus is you are in a good mood, you will see what you want to see, a bad mood what you are afraid you will see, a sad mood what you are concerned you have lost. Illusions are reflections of your own emotions and your own confusion. The truth stands on it’s own.

Like a huge tree with many leaves, the truth will remain the same, no matter how you feel, The truth is not influenced by your state of consciousness. Therefore, the truth of someone loving and accepting you will always give you comfort and safety no matter what your mood. Also, creative ventures have a life of their own, just as your children do.

4 Gates of Consciousness – Akashic Records


4 Gates of Consciousness – Akashic Records

By annamerkaba on December 26, 2013 • ( 11 )


I was doing a channeling for someone recently and she asked me a question about being a keeper of the 4th gate and what it meant. I went to her guides to ask and this is the answer that I have received:

From the third parallel of the third kind, there lays a doorway into the unknown territory of the human psyche, the human psyche that carries the secrets to the ether world. Therein lay the secrets of the human kind.

And so to access the doorway into another parallel of the human psyche and the existence of the truth therein, lays a key, the key which belongs to the one that is gaiting the fourth parallel of the human psyche.

The 4th parallel of the human psyche is not what you consider it to be, but rather a brain wave, and an activity and octave, an octave which exists in the fourth parallel of the human psyche.

And so where you to look at the GigaHertz (HZ) [HZ=FREQUENCY -AK] of your known world, you would then discover that the HZ and psyche are linked, and interchangeable, what we are trying to say is that the wavelength upon which the human brain operates separates into 4 equal parts, and yet unilaterally distant parts, akin to the fibonacci sequence and yet different, whereby the second part is then duplicated and enlarged by its first part, and so forth and so on.

Albeit the seeming difference in length, of the these parallels the octaves and the gigahertz arise evenly, and so we must say that from point zero to point four hundred and thirty two (432) lays the first door of the human consciousness. From four hundred thirty to (432) to sixteen hundred and thirty six (1636) lays another, from 1636 Hz 3216 Hz yet another and so on until infinity, yet the infinity is where the souls true consciousness dwells.

The fourth corridor is where the magic happens, the fourth corridor is where the true soul and identity arises. And so the on in question is a keeper of the fourth gate of the human conciseness, the human GigaHertz wavelength if you will.

Through her voice, she brings forth the magic, through the establishment of her voice she sends out the waves of the fourth dimensional parallel decree, whereby the gigahertz are expanded into the fourth gate, and the gate thereby opens up. They then proceeded to tell her that she can do so with her own voice and can bring it up high enough to have access to people’s 4th gates of consciousness and by speaking with them, or signing to them she would be able to open up that gateway and awaken each and everyone who hears that pitch. Just like dolphins activate our subconsciousness so too can she do the same but in a different way.

After I have received the channeling I went looking online for any further information I could find on this topic and found this very interesting article that I thought I’d share with all of you…

CEO of Cyprus Bank quits

CEO of Cyprus Bank quits on personal account
Apr 22, 2015


Bank of Cyprus CEO John Hourican, an Irish banker who was called in to help the lender rise up from its ruins in 2013 resigned for “personal reasons” on Tuesday, the bank said in a statement.

It said that Hourican will work for about four more months until the end of his notice.

Hourican was appointed Bank of Cyprus CEO shortly after it was directed by Cyprus’s international lenders to impair uninsured deposits over 100,000 euros (107,000 U.S. dollars) by 47.5 percent to recapitalize.

The world’s first bail-in as it has since become known, was part of a resolution of the Cypriot banking system, and involved the winding down of Laiki Bank, the eastern Mediterranean island’s second largest lender, and its folding into Bank of Cyprus.

Cyprus itself received a 10-billion-euro bailout by the Eurogroup and the International Monetary Fund after a prolonged crisis.

Hourican told his staff in a statement that he planned to relocate to Ireland but added that he had no other job yet.

Bank sources said that he would like to spend more time with his family.

“I have been very proud to be part of the Bank of Cyprus family during this period and to have led this chapter in the Bank’s rehabilitation,” Hourican’s statement reads.

Bank of Cyprus was recapitalized last year, drawing funds from American billionaire Wilbur Ross and the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development. It passed stress tests conducted EU-wise by the European Central Bank in late-2014.( 1 euro = 1.07 U.S. dollars) Enditem

Bank of Cyprus CEO John Hourican resigns citing personal reasons
By Reuters | 21 Apr, 2015, 01.27PM t

NICOSIA: Bank of Cyprus chief executive officer John Hourican resigned on Tuesday for personal reasons, the bank said.

It said that Hourican, appointed in late 2013, would work his four-month notice period.

A former RBS executive, Hourican was appointed just after the bank was forced to bail in client deposits to recapitalise during the island's financial crisis in 2013.

The bank successfully raised private funds from US and European investors in a separate capital increase last year.

Hourican planned to relocate to his native Ireland, the bank said

Breaking News: John Hourican Resigns from Bank of Cyprus

John Hourican, Chief Executive Officer of the island’s largest lender, Bank of Cyprus, has officially submitted his resignation from the post.

The bank’s Board of Directors revealed the development today, announcing that Hourican’s resignation will be effective in four months.

As per his employment contract, the CEO has a contractual notice period of four months, though he remains at the disposal of the Board.

“Hourican’s decision to leave the Group is a personal one and he intends to relocate to his home country, Ireland,” a BoC press release reveals. Without another job immediately lined up, the CEO allegedly intends on spending more time with his family.

"I have been very proud to be part of the Bank of Cyprus family during this period and to have led this chapter in the Bank's rehabilitation," he said in a statement to staff.

The Board of Directors is expected to discuss in due course issues arising from Hourican’s departure, including the issue of succession.

The Bank’s strategy will continue to be implemented by the management team, under the guidance of the Board of Directors, the bank has noted.

“Τhe Board of Directors expresses its warmest thanks to Mr. Hourican for his contribution to the Group,” the release concludes.

Born in 1970 in Dublin, Ireland, Hourican graduated with a degree in Economics and Sociology from the National University of Ireland and a postgraduate diploma in Accounting from Dublin City University, before beginning his career with Price Waterhouse, initially in Dublin, and later in London and Hong Kong.

Hourican was chief executive of Markets and International Banking for the Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc until 28 February 2013, resigning to "demonstrate responsibility", following RBS's £390 million fine for its involvement in the Libor scandal, although he was not personally implicated.

Appointed to the role of CEO of Bank of Cyprus in October 2013, Hourican publically stated that he would aim to rescue the bank within three to five years. 

Hourican is also a fellow of Chartered Accountants Ireland.

Irish man John Hourican to leave CEO role at Bank of Cyprus
John Hourican took job with Bank of Cyprus to rebuild it after national debt crisis

John Hourican: rejects speculation his return to Ireland is linked to seeking to become the new chief executive of AIB in succession to David Duffy. 

Irish banking executive John Hourican has resigned from his role as chief executive of Bank of Cyprus to return to his home in Dublin where his wife and four young children are based.
Mr Hourican will serve a four months’ notice period with the bank, which is listed on stock exchanges in Cyprus and Athens, before moving back to Ireland.

Speaking to The Irish Times yesterday, Mr Hourican scotched speculation he might be in the frame to become the new chief executive of AIB in succession to David Duffy. “I am not involved in that process nor am I involved in any process for any job in Ireland at this stage,” he said.

Mr Hourican took on the job with Bank of Cyprus in November 2013 with a view to rebuilding the institution following a national debt crisis on the island. This involved merging with the country’s second-biggest bank, shutting 70 branches with a reduction of 1,450 staff, and offloading most of what he described as the bank’s overseas “misadventure”.

It has also repaid €4.5 billion of the €11 billion of emergency liquidity it received, returned to profitability, and raised new equity, including from former Bank of Ireland investor Wilbur Ross. The bank passed the European Central Bank’s stress tests in October and is examining overseas stock market listing options.

Cyprus challenge

Mr Hourican said he took on the job when Cyprus was in “cardiac arrest” and its financial system had been forced to bail-in depositors: “It was a challenge I though I’d like to have a go at. We have achieved more than I thought we would achieve.”

He added it “just feels like a good time to put a little more balance into my life”.

Mr Hourican said he would look for a role in the “British Isles”, possibly outside banking. “I’m fairly agnostic if its banking or something else but we’ll see.”

The board of Bank of Cyprus expressed its “warmest thanks” to Mr Hourican for his contribution. Last year, he was paid just more than €1 million, including a €111,000 pension contribution. Mr Hourican is a former head of investment banking at Royal Bank of Scotland.


Arcturian Energetic Weather Report #3 - Your ARE a Stream of Consciousness




Arcturian Energetic Weather Report #3
Your ARE a Stream of Consciousness


Sunday, April 19, 2015

Transmission form The Arcturians and Galactic Family

The energetic weather report is “hot” and “cloudy.” By “hot” we mean that many new developments are “heating up” to the “boiling point,” in which they will be revealed. It is “cloudy” because there is still a great deal of TRUTH that is hidden behind the clouds of illusion. Most of you, our volunteers to take earth vessels, have taken quite a few lifelong assignments on the 3D Matrix of Gaia.

Some of you can remember many of those embodiments, which allows you to better release the clouds of illusion. Many of you are not, yet, aware of your other incarnations, but as your consciousness expands to resonate primarily to the fourth dimension, you will begin to remember that DEATH is one of greatest illusions on Earth.

Much like a hermit crab on the ocean floor, you need to “take a new shell” to continue your LIVES-long missions. Therefore, “death” simply means that your 3D shell no longer serves your needs, and you will need to release that shell to find a new one. Many of our brave volunteers have spent many eons on the “Wheel of birth/death” between 3D to 4D to 3D to 4D.

After a certain amount of turns of this Wheel, you chose to return Home to your realities in the fifth dimension and beyond. Of course, the intense forgetfulness that overtakes your soul essence from too many physical incarnations can make that return HOME difficult. However, it is not the return that is difficult. The difficult part of the return is remembering how to make that return.

Now, the entire planet that is ready for Her return HOME into the higher frequencies, but many of Gaia’s humans are still lost in the fog of forgetfulness. Therefore, beloved members of our Galactic Family, we are sending emissaries into your daily life. As those of you who are awake know, we have been sending our emissaries for many years.

After your horrific WWII, the Pleiadians came to Earth to counteract the offer from the Zeta Reticuli, who were in deep association with the military. The Zetas needed DNA as they were cloned beings and had replicated themselves too often. Their terms were, “We will give you advanced technology, if you give us some human DNA.”

The Pleiadians said, “Wait, you do NOT want to give away human DNA. We will give you advanced technology, and all we ask is that you give up your atomic bombs.”

Arcturian Energetic Weather Report #2


Dear Arcturians,

I am ready to receive your message.

Yes, Suzille, thank you. In fact we wish to thank YOU and all your many readers who have followed us through out the many years since the early 1990’s. We know that all of you have had to wait, and wait, and wait, for us, the Galactics, to come directly into your reality. We understand how many of you have become frustrated and confused that we have not, yet, landed.

However, Gaia is a free will planet. Therefore, there must be a “majority consensus” before we can begin our landings. Also, we have to know that it will be safe for the humans and for Gaia. As you may know, there are still many beings wearing humanoid form that have conspired against our landing.

These impostors have been selfishly controlling your world at great expense to the physical body of Gaia, as well as to the physical body of anyone who would rise against them. Then, many humans were fully brainwashed by the dark ones, and refuse to believe that there are civilizations beyond Earth.

Many of these humans are so very overwhelmed by daily survival, that the thought of re-structuring their entire world is terrifying. The dark ones created businesses, jobs and global events that kept these people on “survival mode,” so that anything outside of working hard, and having some fun, was the only life they could imagine. There are also many brave ones who were killed by the dark ones for daring to tell the truth to the people of Earth.

Of course, the brainwashing programs, as well as the poor educational systems that were deliberately started by the dark ones, have kept many humans within the “survival mode” of just barely making it through each day. You see, our dear friends and family on Earth, you have been fighting a hidden war for your right to know the truth of the real conditions on Earth.

Fortunately, there are the many brave and awakened humans who search for information and meditate on a regular basis to commune with us. These awakened humans continually try to spread the truth in whatever manner best suits their awareness and personality.

We are very pleased to inform you that this later group of awake and aware ones wearing an earth vessel is greatly expanding. We say, “wearing an earth vessel,” because YOU, the members of this group, have become, and are increasingly becoming, aware of your higher dimensional expressions of SELF that are also serving on our Starships and in the higher dimensions.

Because of this increasing awareness, you realize that your earth vessel is merely the lowest dimensional expression of your multidimensional SELF. Therefore, you are “wearing” your body rather than “being” your body.

Hilarion - April 19, 2015



April 19-26, 2015

Beloved Ones,

Since time immemorial, each of you have visited and revisited your beautiful planet through a succession of incarnations from the world of spirit into human form. Your hearts are entwined with that of the Earth and you seek to bring healing and restoration to her in any way that you as one individual can, but what you may not know or be aware of, is the impact your efforts make on the field of consciousness that is like a giant web, a network and reservoir of energy that has accumulated throughout the ages from the input of everyone upon the planet. This is the pool of energy that is now being cleansed in a process which now impacts everyone but most especially those who are the energy sensitive amongst you. When you find that emotions well up from within you, be aware that it is the collective field that you are tapping into. Send love to the Earth when this occurs, for this activity helps to dissipate the old energies that are now being released; and then gently detach from it by thinking of something beautiful that the Earth provides for all to enjoy.

Earth is being prepared for another shift as the influx of cosmic energies from the recent days take hold. More miracle occurrences of nature are being recorded and shared through the inter-connected web of activity known as the internet. The people of Earth and the animals too, are being opened to the love from within which is their true nature. This connection is uniting everyone upon the planet into a harmonious oneness of being. There is a greater sense of well-being that is filling the spaces of old energies that have now been opened to the greater Light and been released. There are many more moments of joy, happiness and a sense of belonging that is taking root within the consciousness of humanity. People are helping each other and are asking for that help when they need it themselves. They are allowing themselves to be vulnerable in order to experience the healing that they require, knowing that when many people come together and focus their energies, healing can come quickly.

Finding your way through the labyrinth of mystery is becoming easier because you are all engaged in simplifying your lives so that you can experience an even greater sense of ease and harmony and most importantly, the feeling of peace within. This helps the overall field of consciousness release all that has been in discord and disharmony, which in turn enables and empowers all upon the planet to make a shift in their consciousness and awareness to a higher level of functioning. Love is becoming the inherent tendency when interaction between humanity takes place and also between humanity and the animal and nature kingdoms. As this occurs the elemental kingdom is empowered to take their rightful place in the Divine order and eternal scheme of life. One kingdom of Earth cannot function properly without the rest. All is connected to the web of life that manifests through each.

This truth will become increasingly obvious as events progress. When any living form experiences pain, all within that web of life will also experience this pain to one degree or another until it becomes apparent that in order to alleviate suffering in the world, a different way of inter-action between the Earth’s inhabitant’s must take place. This is where humanity must step up to the plate and take responsibility for the stewardship and guardianship of all of the inhabitants upon their planet. Voices must be raised and heard as humanity comes together to generate win-win solutions for the highest good of all. Looking the other way when seeing the suffering of those around you is no longer a viable option because if that is done, the suffering of the entire web of life will continue. And if it continues, the progression and evolution of your planet will be stunted in its forward movement.

When all upon the planet cooperate with each other in true humility and peaceful good will, then great strides in evolutionary movement will take place. The good news is that most of humanity is ready to step into their deeper empowerment as conscious spiritual beings. They are no longer willing to sit on the sidelines and deny what has been going on for far too long. They will look squarely at theincongruities within the systems that have been in place in all areas of living upon their planet and will begin to make changes to them. When the majority of humanity becomes aware of these individuals as the catalysts for positive change that they are, they will enthusiastically support, endorse and empower their focus. Then greater changes than ever before will take place in an accelerated manner. Why? Because there is finally, a unified focus that the majority of humanity accepts as the reality they desire and it manifest easily.

Until next week…

I AM Hilarion

RODIN FRACTAL EIGHT ABHA TORI MATRIX



Thanks to Ed for pointing this video out... -AK

Uploaded on Feb 25, 2011

Ideas concerning the geometry of vortex maths from an artists perspective.
You will probably need to know a bit about the basics of vortex maths to get to grips with some of the ideas. See links below for info.

*I have attempted to answer the question: What should the exact proportions of specific abha tori such as 9x9 or 36x36 be?

*I wanted to visualise the actual fractal qualities of the Rodin Symbol, and how this connects to the Abha Torus.

*shows a glimpse of the structural properties of the mathematical eight tori fractal matrix. More to follow.

*If the ideas presented are valid, it sets the scene for making a very specific coil array.
If they are incorrect it's back to the drawing board...

*Music by Simon Mathewson.

KEY NOTES:
1. THE FRACTALS CENTRE: Primal Point of Unity / Circle Centre? My choice of the "primal point" as the centre is firstly intuitive. However it fits with a number of other elements of the expanded geometry such as the scaling of intensity of numbers from the outside of the 8 tori matrix to the centre. Secondly even though the south of the 2d fractal Rodin Symbol is compressed the nines retain a consistent distance from each other through all north to south. I welcome discussion on this. I have tried placing the centre in the centre of the circle and the number allignments still seem to fit.

2. AXIS OF ROTATION FOR TORI. To some people selection of the edge of the 9th ring (81x81) as the axis point might seem arbitrary. Again it was kind of intuitive regarding the geometry of the whole fractal. It positions the complete infinite Rodin number matrix between an infinite zero (ie the ring described by the rotation of the central Primal point on the 2D fractal) and an infinite 9. This infinite 9 is compressed at the centre of the tori matrix, and then expands to encompass the everything outside the tori matrix. We then have 3 very unique infinities.

3. NORTH / SOUTH ALIGNMENT. When aligned correctly the eight tori have a distinct North and South line through which the 9's travel in straight lines, to each side of this line they curve away. The final piece of 3D footage should demonstrate this but its not as clear as the original film. This took 16 hrs to render 4 seconds! Therefore I need a much better comp to deal with the visualizing the energizing of the number circuits.

4. NUMBER ALIGNMENTS IN 3D TORI MATRIX. If we imagine slicing the 8 tori matrix in a variety of places through the x axis we will only see the fractal map I have drawn when slicing exactly through north.

5. GAP SPACE TORI 3(27x27) + 6(54x54). Since making the film I have been thinking it is probably only a six torus matrix. If the fractal structure of the doubling circuit is to be continuous then the whole of the third and sixth tori acts as a gap space. This non-use of the 3rd (27x27) and 6th (54x54) circle of numbers in the doubling sequence can be seen around 3.20.

6. MAKING A COIL? Draw out the map yourself or I can send you a copy to get the exact proportions of each specific torus. I have another video about how to make any scale torus.

7. NOTHING NEW? I have seen none of this stuff before apart from the symbol and abha torus structure. Apologies if anyone thinks they have already done any of this. If so please share! When making the first image - I did keep saying to myself- surely someone has done this already!

Heavenletter #5261 Out of the Forest into the Meadow



Heavenletter #5261 Out of the Forest into the Meadow

April 21, 2015

God said:

You are not your past. You are not your future. You are not even your present as you experience it. You think so many outer events accrue to you. It is the inner realizations that accrue to you. I am within you, and I accrue to you now. I look upon you with favor which simply means that I see the Truth of you.

Whatever I see, you can also see. You can be blind and see. You can be the biggest rogué in the world according to the world’s appraisal, and, still, you accrue to Me. You are Mine. There is no one who is not Mine. That you are Mine means I hold you dear, and I hold you close to Me, so close that indeed, on the level from which I speak, We are One and the same. You are Mine, and you possess all the faculties that are Mine. You may rather like to pretend that you are not worth very much and you go so far as to want to lead others astray as well. What you imagine to be true and actual Truth are not always the same.

The more you see Our resemblance, the closer to Truth you are. You are not a book only kept in mind and never written. You are published, yet you haven’t read your own autobiography. You blank out the Truth of you. You simply don’t see what is in front of you. I am in front of you as you play your game of Peek-a-boo with yourself. Come out of hiding.

Of course, you likely have wandered from the Truth of you. You wandered off somewhere in a daze. When you wander off, you have the opportunity to wander back. You can find your way back to the Reality of Who You Are. You are wandering now.

Wandering isn’t an unruly thing. Wandering is okay. Regardless, no matter how many false starts you make, you will find yourself coming out of the forest into the meadow you were born to.

Beautiful Desires of My Heart, how lovely are you in My eyes. How lovely are you in My heart. It is from My heart that I see you and see you clearly. I see the Truth of you in My heart. It is you who scavenge around looking for yourself outside you somewhere, in this or in that, here and there. You are overflowing within, and, yet, you look askance.

It’s like when you wake up. While you are asleep, you are not aware that you are asleep, for you are asleep. When you become aware that you fell asleep, that’s when you are awake. You are aware when you are awake. If you were fully aware that you were asleep while you slept, you would know how deep in My heart you are and have ever been and how off-track you go.

You have been asleep most of your life. Will you admit this?

Now you are removing coverings from yourself. You rub away layers of illusion from your skin, as it were. The layers of illusion go downstream. Once gone, they are gone. Poof. Meanwhile, you are swimming upstream to find out Who you really are, as if to give birth to yourself in another kingdom.

What a discovery you are about to make. Disheveled as you thought you were, now you shake your head, and your golden curls fall into place, and you begin to see the stature that you truly are. My beloveds, you rise above the Earth. Now you see so clearly. What a joke you have perpetuated upon yourself, and now a laugh rises from your throat and you are like a laughing Buddha. You are laughing all because you began to see Truth instead of all the trouble you used to see while you were still asleep or half asleep.

The sun is rising in you now. You are the dawn that has come.

Greece Default and Drachma By Month End?



Greece Default and Drachma By Month End?
By Mark O'Byrne April 14, 2015

  • Greek government to withhold IMF payments according to the FT
  • Prime Minister Tsipras denies preparing for default according to Reuters
  • Government funds to run out by end of month
  • Default would likely lead to “Grexit” and return to drachma
  • EU may not withstand uncertainty surrounding break-up of monetary union
  • Concern could trigger derivatives crisis and ‘Lehman moment’
  • Like frogs in a pot of water that is very slowly coming to the boil
1,000 Greek Drachma Note
The Financial Times, citing unsourced “people briefed on the radical leftist government’s thinking” has made the claim that the Tsipras government in Athens has “has decided to withhold E2.5 billion of payments due to the International Monetary Fund in May and June if no agreement is struck”.

The Greek government was quick to deny the claim. “Greece … is not preparing for any debt default and the same goes for its lenders. Negotiations are proceeding swiftly towards a mutually beneficial solution,” read a statement from the Prime Minister’s office.

The Greek government is rapidly exhausting its funding to pay salaries and pensions with no funding from its lenders having been released since July. Another “end of the road” deadline looms – this time the Eurogroup meeting on April 24th.

This meeting may truly be the “end of the road” because it is expected that the Greek government will have finally depleted its reserves and will be wholly dependent on its creditors by the end of this month.

Negotiations have been going around in circles since the election of the anti-austerity Syriza government in January and appear no closer to resolution. It became apparent in late February that neither side was prepared to compromise – each having too much to lose from deviating from their central positions. There has been adequate time, since then, for preparations to be made for an orderly “Grexit”.

Indeed, it may be that the two sides have agreed to disagree and are waiting for a politically expedient time for Greece to leave the euro. Media coverage of the crisis in both Germany and Greece is catalysing public opinion towards this end.

Finally: List of 80 People With as Much Money as 1/2 of Humanity




Bernie Sanders is of course a socialist and as such believes you make people better off by taking it from someone else.  That is not my agenda.  That's been tried in Russia and China and they just ended up poorer.  The politics of envy and class struggle is another form of keeping people believing they have no power.

Many of these on this list would have a very different ranking if the USD were not the world's reserve currency and artificially high as a result of that.  Not all wealthy people inherited it, not all got because of great crimes of history, some worked very hard for it all.  And money is a perception, wealth is not the number of FRNs in your bank account, a lot of very wealthy people have an equally large (or more) amount of debt owed.  And truly mind boggling wealthy people don't show any wealth much at all, for its all hidden behind "charitable trusts" and the like.... still this is a very interesting list of where much of the wealth of this planet is concentrated. 

The list however seems to leave out the 13 western banking families, and the dragon families... and concentrates on those who are politically active in visible ways...  -AK

by Michael Thomas for Exposing The Truth

Since the “financial repression,” the most powerful people have only gotten more powerful. A 2013 Oxfam report found that 80 people had as much wealth as 1/2 of humanity, and a few months later Forbes said the number had dropped to 67. Many of us asked who exactly these people are, and now the list has been released.

These are the same people, very likely, keeping the “filter” on our representative democracy. Do you feel uncomfortable about the fact that many of these people have seen their wealth increase drastically while at the same time the middle class shrinks and “austerity” is demanded almost globally outside of Sweden and Norway. It makes me feel uncomfortable that the political influence of these people have served to increase their wealth and weaken regulations, and I suggest we seek meaningful changes on a systemic level.

What Bernie Sanders had to say in his meme about wealth inequality is true, and it is most certainly not an accident.
