Judge me by my size, do you?
And well you should not.
For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is."
―Yoda, wise master of the Force and teacher of Jedi, to Luke Skywalker
In that moment, Yoda made an impact that stayed with me today. I know that if my ally is respect, wisdom, honesty, fairness, strength, integrity, and kindness, and if I keep company with those who share my values, I will be blessed, and powerful, indeed. My reputation for upholding those values will magnetize 'the Force" to my worthy causes, and I will find the ability to create and share many things. I must only choose to surround myself with those who are also in alignment with that force, and together our efforts will multiply tenfold.
"Tell me what company you keep and I'll tell you what you are."
–Miguel de Cervantes
I'm not saying it's right, but people tend to judge you by the company you keep. When it comes to reputation, perception is reality in the minds of most. Therefore, if my associates and affiliates are negatively perceived, my own effectiveness may be diminished.
Perhaps it may be more beneficial not to worry what other people think and simply be mindful of my own actions. Consistently living my life with integrity enables me to feel at peace with myself. In the end, that is far more important than trying to change perceptions and labels about those people and situations that are beyond my control.
Life is a series of hellos and good-byes. It is about attaching, connecting, and often separating and then detaching, disconnecting and letting go. Not all connections are healthy ones. Toxic, unhealthy relationships are those fueled by disrespect, that leave us feeling depleted rather than energized and valued.
When we find ourselves having made a relational mistake we first have to honor our self respect, and accept and transform that mistake into a growth opportunity. Recognizing and then letting go of toxic relating is a necessary loss that makes room for all the new that awaits you.
Creative energy is fueled by respect, honesty, integrity, and kindness.
Healthy relationships can live on no less.
May the Force Be With You!
Full quote: “Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.”

"Do not believe anything
because it is said by an authority,
or if it is said to come from angels,
or from Gods,
or from an inspired source.
Believe it only if you have explored it
in your own heart
and mind and body
and found it to be true.
Work out your own path,
– Guatama Buddha
Coincidence? Synchronicity. Synchronous events reveal an underlying pattern, a conceptual framework which encompasses, but is larger than, any of the component events. This week, I noticed that most of the conversations I have had with clients and friends have been framed by the idea of time, and the feeling of losing time, along with a sense of urgency in the process of ascension. It is a not a coincidence, it is simply a growing intuitive awareness of a dimensional shift happening right now. Right now!
At its most basic description, a dimension is a band of energy, or frequency of Light. Human beings can only see in dimensions that match their own energy or light vibration. As we become more aware and enlightened (through unconditional love which manifests as service), we can see into other dimensions and begin to grasp the bigger picture, intuit higher levels of truth, and create consciously.
In the process of waking up, we gradually let go of being located in a dimension with denser energy than ourselves. We move on to experience and create in the higher energy dimensions, using higher vibrations. The 3rd dimension is the world of matter which we see around us, and it is quite dense energetically, yet it still contains a range of experiences. We all have been around people, and in situations and locations where we experienced feeling very light or very heavy.
Most of the 4th dimension, particularly the denser section called the astral plane, has events similar to those seen on Earth. We are currently transiting the 4th dimension. In this transition, humanity and the Earth are releasing emotions. This accounts for much of the fear being expressed personally and globally as systems that we thought kept us safe collapse. It also contributes to much of the Earth changes including wildfires, flooding, quakes.
The 5th dimension is considered to be the first level of ascension. This is the level where one truly operates as spirit and can grasp a holistic view of the overall scheme of things. It's high enough to be out of the lower thought/emotional/pain school of learning, karma, and judgement. The 5th dimension contains a high enough frequency of light to allow us to move beyond our emotions. So, we are not running out of time, we are running out of pain. We are running out of the need to experience light through darkness, recognize joy through despair, create haves by exploiting have-nots. We are running out of duality. We are running out of fear.
Try to see Earth as a third dimensional planet with the 4th dimension wrapped around it, like an atmosphere. The 4th dimension is a storage area for emotions; the Earth's and ours, over generations of experience. As a 3rd and 4th dimensional planet, Earth will ascend to become a 5D planet surrounded by 6D, leaving those emotionally charged learning experiences behind.
The sense of losing time is happening because the planet is moving in its evolution toward an ascended state, with a vibrational energy which is raised/quickened to a frequency in which emotional needs do not dictate creation. Only the the third and fourth dimensions contain the concept of linear time. When a planet is ascending it's moving toward a realm where there is no time. So, as the Earth moves toward the 5th dimensional, time slowly disappears. We will continue to lose time until the Earth is fully in the 5th dimension, beyond linear time and is in a space of only 'now', no 'before' or 'after'.
We can all achieve stepping out of the time frame by just being in the now, in the present moment.
Check in on the current time loss. You can access lots of information about time compression all over google, and find tips for flowing with ascension acceleration energy experiences as well. A good list can be found at http://www.intent.com/blog/2009/01/22/ascension-acceleration-energy-experiences. There are many others, so I won't go into depth here.
It is enough to know that you only need to stay in the flow as much as possible (for you) to access highest the truth. "Believe it only if you have explored it in your own heart and mind and body and found it to be true," are wise words indeed. It requires discipline to maintain that highest link source, and not give into the emotion of fear. This discipline is achieved by being positive and mindful, and not being negative or judgmental, by being continually discerning, and by maintaining your own personal high vibrational space as a priority.
My experience shows the Earth is indeed becoming a 5th dimensional planet. We will then join with the many other 5th dimensional planets in this universe. There will be no third dimension here at all. Once she has ascended, the people who will then be resident on the new 5D Earth will be those who have chosen to ascend with her. Although many lightworkers will be returning home prior to the Earth becoming a 5D planet as part of their Divine blueprint, anyone can change their mind and stay. Remember, everything is a choice. Choose wisely. Choose love.

I've been meditating on Earth Day celebrations and commitments, about three decades too late in our consciousness, but better late than never.
I've been taking an accounting of what has been lost in selfishness and corruption around me, and the lessons that remain unlearned. I've watched the tired, poor, huddled masses yearning to breathe free given a new home built on sand. I've been watching time, cycle over itself, tripping over itself, for human beings unaware.
Today I pray...
Great Spirit, give us hearts to understand;
- Never to take from creation's beauty more than we give;
Never to destroy wantonly for the furtherance of greed;
Never to deny to give our hands for the building of earth's beauty;
Never to take from her what we cannot use.
That to destroy earth's music is to create confusion;
That to wreck her appearance is to blind us to beauty;
That to callously pollute her fragrance is to make a house of stench;
That as we care for her she will care for us.
We have forgotten who we are.
We have sought only our own security.
We have exploited simply for our own ends.
We have distorted our knowledge.
We have abused our power.
Great Spirit, whose dry lands thirst,
Help us to find the way to refresh your lands.
Great Spirit, whose waters are choked with debris and pollution,
Help us to find the way to cleanse your waters.
Great Spirit, whose beautiful earth grows ugly with misuse,
Help us to find the way to restore beauty to your handiwork.
Great Spirit, whose creatures are being destroyed,
Help us to find a way to replenish them.
Great Spirit, whose gifts to us are being lost in selfishness and corruption,
Help us to find the way to restore our humanity.

Oshun is the Orisha Goddess of fresh water - the energy of bounty, blessings, home, and hearth. The name Oshun translates to mean "spring" or "source." As the Orisha of fresh water, Oshun represents the source of all life. No matter what country we live in, our religion, our income, our lifestyle, or our politics, water will continue to be a dwindling resource. We face a crisis, globally as well as locally, in meeting our clean-water needs. The crisis is as serious as our energy crisis.
Most of the world’s surface water is locked up in the oceans as salt water. Only 3% of the world’s water is freshwater. As the Earth’s population continues to grow and expand, the search for freshwater sources is ongoing whether existing, recycled or desalinated.
Two-thirds of that 3% is frozen into the North and South polar icecaps and glaciers. With those ice caps now melting and dissolving into the salty oceans, how much further does that reduce that percentage?
More than 1 billion people around the world lack access to safe drinking water. Nearly 5 million die each year from water-related illnesses. That number continues to grow.
The most effective and sound water policy is conservation. Here are some simple and effective water conservation tips to incorporate into your life today, and hold sacred for the rest of your life:
- Dripping faucets and leaky pipes are among the worst water-wasting offenders. Make certain sure that your appliances aren’t big wasters.
- Low-flush toilets and low-flow shower heads help to ensure conservation by restricting the volume of water involved in each flush or during each shower.
- Make sure to turn off water during periods of non-use, while brushing your teeth, for example. If washing or rinsing dishes by hand, adjust the flow of water to a small stream so that the majority of water goes where you need it to, and doesn’t escape down the drain.
- Drip, or trickle irrigation has been used for centuries, and is a very water-efficient system for your yard, aimed at getting the water where it’s needed most - plants, not pavement! If your space is small enough, consider watering by hand – not only will the water get where it needs to be, you will maintain a connection with your plants and the natural surroundings.
- Water early in the day so your watering efforts are maximized and evaporation does not occur too quickly, which can dry out your plants.
- Apply a layer of mulch over the soil for your flowers, plants and vegetables. This will help to seal in and retain moisture, and preserve your soil’s nutrient content.
Representing the living water, Oshun teaches us if we are caught up in in the flow of our lives to stop and be truly present. She also teaches us to go with the flow of our instincts in order to find intuitive and new ways, better ways. She teaches us to love and be generous to ourselves and to each other. She teaches us self-confidence, and she urges us to restore harmony by working together so all may know health, wellness, abundance and prosperity.
I know that you've heard this all before, but today, this Earth Day 2009, please choose to act, choose to honor the Earth and the spirit of Oshun by making your life and lifestyle choices an homage to the sweet waters. Lead by example. Do what you consider to be your part, and it really will make a difference.
May you be blessed with commitment, courage, and compassion.

This vision invites our recognition of the needs of the planet and the life it sustains as primary, with ourselves as the conscious servants of those needs. Above all, it is a vision that asks that we relinquish our addiction to violence and the pursuit of power; that we become more aware of the dark shadow cast by this addiction which threatens us with ever more barbarism, bloodshed and suffering, leading ultimately to the possible extinction of our species. An essential modern, holy vision.
It is the vision of love.
We have developed a formidable intellect, a formidable science, a formidable technology but what of the soul, the dimension of our deepest instincts and feelings? What of our visions, dreams and hopes as well as our deepest wounds and the suffering caused by our lack of compassion towards each other? What of our need for relationship with a dimension of reality invisible to our senses? The pressing need for the soul's recognition has brought us to this time of choice. Our self-created mortal danger is forcing us to take a great leap in our evolution that we might never have made were we not driven by the extremity of circumstance. As prophesized, as promised.
We are now poised for an immense opportunity for evolutionary advance, if only we can understand what is happening and why. We can choose whether to imitate the patterns of the past, continuing to live our lives in servitude to the power principle, however subtly expressed, or we can choose relationship with life, respect for life, love of life, and the immense effort of consciousness we need to make to understand and serve its mystery. After so many billion years of evolution, it is simply unacceptable that the beauty and marvel of the earth should be ravaged by us through commercial greed, the destructive power of our weapons or the misapplication of our science and technology.
You are invited to explore the attunements, activations, consultations, and study programs that I offer on my website. You are also invited to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the services listed. I look forward to opening my heart as a channel for healing, growth and awareness in your life. Your soul is calling.

Beginner's Mind. I awoke this morning with these words at the forefront of my consciousness. I can't remember dreaming a context for the words but there they were. I know that in Eastern Philosophy, “beginners mind” is a concept that teaches us to put aside old ideas and beliefs and see things as if for the first time. It is about opening up our minds to new possibilities rather than being trapped by old experiences and judgements that may no longer serve us. Beginner's mind allows us to be open, creative, flexible and non judgmental of ourselves and others and to remain teachable.
Teachable, interesting. As we evolve our lives, we improve upon existing structures or change them. We eat healthier, excercise more, re-examine relationships, start businesses and end them. All good, but often problems often arrise when we judge our evolving and fear the very changes as bad-good, right-wrong, should-shouldn’t because we did or didn’t do something in the past. Our judgmental mind begins to boil and suddenly our self esteem has evaporated.
In a beginner’s mind there can be no “I am the ultimate expert", or "I am a clueless failure.” The empty mind (and open heart) is ready for anything! Teach me! What is today's lesson?
So, it must be with profound compassion for ourselves –the very, very vulnerable open heart – and with a beginner’s mind which we choose any new goal, structure, or journey. We must begin with childlike excitement and anticipation of what is to come and welcome any and all of the unexpected possibilities that may unfold.
When we decide the way it should be, it's going to be, in absolute certainty, without any flexibility, or tell ourselves we can’t do something, we smother any process of learning and growing. If there is a hidden lesson or wisdom waiting for us, a judgmental or pre-conceived mindset will never allow it's discovery.
Today I am going to create a gentle space for “I don’t know.” That means that I am going to embrace the idea that anything and everything is possible today. I will not allow my "expertise", which is a collection of past impressions and judgements of events, experiences, and ideas that happened once upon a time, to prevent me from experiencing the present, the only place where new insights emerge.
Today I intend to be teachable. Today I go forth with beginners mind. I can hardly wait for the sun to rise!

I have a really large, gorgeous green piece of Moldavite, naturally formed in the shape of a heart. When I received it as a gift some twenty years ago, I had NO IDEA what I had been given. Even today, my understanding grows and deepens with my every encounter with this amazing stone.
Moldavites originated almost 15 million years ago, when a great meteorite hit the earth surface in what is now the Czech Republic. Athough Moldavite was prized by human beings for tools and amulets some 25,000 years ago, it was a forgotten energy until just a few decades ago. In modern times, Moldavite has emerged as one of the healing crystals most prized by practioners of energy-healing modalities and metaphysical seekers and seers alike. I have personally experienced Moldavite to boost my physical and psychic energy, remove a headache, and to recover from illness or injury almost at the speed of light!
In my healing practice I often recommend Moldavite Meditations to clients who are dealing with emotionally-charged challenges. We use it to improve relationships and to break addictions to outdated thought patterns, unhealthy behaviors, and limiting judgements. Because it is also effective in relieving panic and anxiety, traumatized animals such as those transitioning from shelters to new homes benefit from exposure to Moldavite's influence. (Just dab a bit of Moldavite oil on their bedding for an instantly calming effect!)
However, it is Moldavite's transformative applications to our spiritual dimension that most interests and amazes me. Beyond any other energy, Moldavite is a catalyst for inner evolution towards one’s highest good. Often the changes it brings can be intense and rapid, difficult, and life-altering, but certainly Moldavites are among the most powerful gemstone tools for spiritual development and expansion of consciousness.
In some tellings, the Holy Grail of Arthurian legend was said to be not a cup, but a stone; a crystal Emerald that fell from the sky. In other stories, the Grail cup was carved from the crystal Emerald. The ancients called all clear green gemstones “Emeralds”, and Moldavite is the only such crystal ever to have fallen from the sky. Like the stone of the Grail, a healing Moldavite crystal seems to be a harbinger of one’s higher destiny and a helpful and healing talisman for the achievement of it. Consciously working with Moldavite seems to trigger events that bring about the right relationships, right livelihood, align the rest of one’s life into harmonious accord with the divine pattern, the highest good.
I have found that moldavite harmonizes particularly well with Larimar, the Quartz Family, and Luvilite in the laying of stones on the body, gridding and in blending gemstone oils. It tends to supercharge and spiritualize the energies of whatever stones we use with it. Moldavite oil can be placed on gems, or on the chakra and meridian points of our subtle energy bodies. This raises our vibration, beginning a process of energetic resonance in which the vibratory rate of our whole being is increased rather dramatically.Energetically, Moldavite will activate all of the chakras. Moldavite's energy tends first to move wherever it is most needed in the physical and etheric bodies, and then centers in the heart. I have formulated a very special Moldavite soap using my own personal Master Moldavite Crystal (in photo above). This soap is suitable for daily use to help hold your physical and energy bodies in resonance with your life purpose as you incarnated to experience.
I invite you to begin to explore Moldavite enegies as a tool of transformation by visiting either our Bonanzle stoeront or our website and simply purchasing a bar Moldavite soap. I would aslo like to share a wonderful meditation to use when working with any Moldavite:
"I ask that spirit walk with me this day and that I have the courage to carry this truth within me in all that I do. To fully stand in my own truth and power is to honor the spirit within. Help me today to remember both who I am and who I am not. To accept the truth of my own limitations, clears the path to carrying my true power. This day I will balance my ego by checking it often and see my true motivations. I accept the power that is rightfully mine and will to use it to create Home on this side of the veil. I ask that I may allow spirit to emanate from me to all who choose to look upon me, that I may be a perfect mirror so that they may see the Divine within themselves. As spirit walks with me this day I remember to give thanks for the gift of spirit on my shoulder."
May you be blessed with a good life, lived in harmony with your divine blueprint.

We've just added a collection of fun, colorful yoyo blossom necklaces and pendants to our jewelry selection at Oshun Spirit on Bonanzle. These funky fabric and mixed media embellishments add a splash of color like a scarf, but are easier to wear like a necklace!
Yoyo quilts were popular in 1930's and 1940's. Yoyos are small rosettes made of cotton or silk. These rosettes were made by gathering and stitching fabric into a circle. The rosettes are then joined to each other to form chains or a pattern. Yoyo quilts were used as coverlets and bed toppers and these have been re-purposed into this season's happy spring must-haves!
Inspired by grandma's handiwork, each blossom pendant or necklace is one-of-a- kind and handmade with love! You'll find simple styles that are embellished with silk buds and fibre leaves, and more dramatic pieces that feature crystals, beads, and ribbon.
They're affordable and collectible... and perfect for gift-giving! Equally at home with your little black dress, as with a T shirt and jeans! Visit our Bonanzle storefront today and treat yourself to spring on a string!

Reiki symbols are Sanskrit-derived Japanese forms. The Vedas say that Sanskrit is the language of the spirit world. During a Reiki attunement, an imprinting takes place that links the student to the symbol and the metaphysical energies the symbol represents. The Reiki attunement actually plugs the student into part of a collective consciousness of people bringing in energy to heal through those symbols. That is their their intended purpose. As a Reiki Master Teacher, I respect the Reiki symbols as sacred healing symbols which enhance the flow of healing energy. They act like keys that open doors to higher levels of awareness and manifestation. But they are not the doors, nor are they the source.
However, the symbols do carry their own consciousness, and it is born from loving intention nurtured and strengthened through the ages by Masters of many traditions, including Reiki.
So in the practice of Reiki, the symbols act as triggers, and they are useful because they help train the mind in such a way as to instantly trigger the flow in a reflexive, and multi-dimensional way. This way, instead of having to focus on ritual or shifting, the tracing of the symbol can get the energy flowing instantly while I turn my attention to something else, like my client's words or breath patterns.
Ancient peoples believed that all sacred art, created in ritual, trance, or meditation had great power and helped create change and healing because it was inspired by Spirit. (In SPIRIT ation!) There are many modern day Shamans, like myself, channeling symbols and geometries with the goal to help heal humanity, and the earth, with healing art.
Each healing artist plugs into part of a collective consciousness of people bringing in art to heal, becoming part of the oneness consciousness that is being born. Through these symbols and forms we all join, share our visions, pray as one, and find others who search for the dream of oneness as we do.
Through the sharing of this art and the consciousness that surrounds the earth, we become one consciousness. As I bring in images of high vibrational essences, and manifest them in the outer world in the form of T shirts or totebags, or manifestation grids, I am contributing to the healing force to restore the earth and its inhabitants to harmony. It is my prayer that this art finds others who are having the same dream, of peace and love, and hope, and that anyone who needs to be healed will also find these images. I know that making art with intention to heal, heals.Neurophysiologists understand that art, prayer, and healing all come from the same source in the body, that they all are associated with similar brain wave patterns, mind body changes, and they all are deeply connected in feeling and meaning. Art, prayer, and healing all take us into our inner world, the world of imagery and emotion, of visions and feelings, of creativity and creation. The vibrational signature of art that is created to optimize and balance energies recalibrates those energies in the mind, body and spirit. Making art with the intention to restore, restores.
Let's love one another! I share with you this symbol of healing, a vibrational signature that carries unconditional love. Dolphins are keepers of light upon Earth, living fully immersed in oneness consciousness. The blue lotus bud awaits the dolphin transmissions of love to be fully anchored in the consciousness of mankind. According to legend, when human beings become spiritually wise the blue lotus shall bloom. Oneness. Love. May we be blessed!

It is this principle of oneness underlying all geometry, of interconnectedness, inseparability, and union that provides us with a continuous reminder of our relationship to the whole, and a blueprint for the mind of the sacred foundation of all things created. These patterns found throughout the universe, in snowflakes and fern fronds and galaxies, may be used by us in the creation of "highest good" experiences and opportunities.
We are living in challenging times, and we all need to love and support one another in creating healing in ourselves and in our world. As we are all waking up to a higher level of consciousness, we are all experiencing the challenges of claiming our great power, our own Divine Light. Many are having trouble staying connected to higher levels of consciousness while also remaining solidly grounded in the physical world. Applied Sacred Geometry is the key to manifestation, materialization and the creation of harmonious structures and spaces for well-being, peace, creativity, ideas, and healing to come into being.
Gridding is an ancient, powerful modality in which a very focused vortex of Life Force Energy is created by way of prescribed, prescise, sacred geometric patterns.
A Crystalline Grid is activated by connecting specific patterns of light between the stones, using crystalline, mental and divine energies to facilitate transformation. It is the same when using sacred art. Tachyon cells, crystals or stones may be used in the physical, energetic imprints and thought forms are used on the etheric planes. The activation is accomplished using a combination of crystalline, mental and divine energies.
The ancients of all races used crystalline grids to facilitate transformation including healing and manifestation. This sacred, healing art has the capacity to influence the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. Continuous grids greatly accelerate material manifestation and support healing and positive change on all levels. Grids enhance distance healing and prayer work, and once activated, will impact the energies of your environment as well.
I invite you to take ten minutes to explore the art of applied sacred geometry by watching the video "Introduction of Sacred Geometry" by Charles Gilchrest. I also offer sacred geometry and crystal gridding services, study programs, and products on the Oshun Spirit website and in the Bonanzle storefront.
If you wish to create positive change in your life, or in the lives of others, applied sacred geometry is the perfect tool. May you be blessed as a co-creator of peace on Earth and goodwill to all her creatures.

Once upon a time, and just once, I replied that I was an ebay psychic. Of course the person who asked thought I was joking. But it was true. At the time, I was working with dozens of clients each week, all who were finding me on eaby, and I was using my psychic and intuitive skills to help them to become more aware of how their spiritual life (or lack of it) might be influencing the choices and challenges they were experiencing in their relationships, careers, and health.
I don't call myself "Madame Susabella" or dress in flowing robes, but I am what I am. My practice has long since grown past the confines of the ebay metaphysical community, although I do maintain a few listings there. And, my practice and on-line presence has taken several twists and turns along the way.
While I do offer psychic and tarot readings, I have turned my attention to the Tachyon field, and the application of sacred geometry to encode and program vibrations of thoughts and emotion with probable outcomes. Its sort of like embryonic stem cell research without matter! And yes, I use my psychic skills as part of the equation, in conjunction with an understanding of quantum physics, a healthy dose of faith in the structure of an intelligent universe and an appreciation of our human ability to intuit and create with that intelligence. So, I now simply say I am an intuitive counselor. Quantum physics is difficult to explain in a brief, casual encounter.
Although there is nothing wrong with being referred to as a psychic, the term itself has gotten a bit of a bad rap. I personally don’t mind the label psychic, as I see it as a natural ability that has become a valuable skill with years of study and practice, like any other talent be it musical, athletic, or artistic.
Because we are all psychic on some level this ability need not be looked at as if it is a mysterious talent. I think the change in labeling may be to create a distinction between those of us who are interested in helping others with our intuitive tools from the stigma attached from the scamming fortune tellers who call themselves psychic.
Not everyone uses their intuitive natures professionally to help others. Some of us that do are more comfortable being referred to as intuitive counselors or healers.
What’s the difference?
Someone who seeks a psychic may ask: “When will I meet my soul mate?”
A person consulting an intuitive counselor asks: “What can I do differently in my life to help attract a loving partner?”
Intuitive ability is a wonderful gift that offers healers such as myself the opportunity to better understand nature of the challenges their clients are suffering with. A skilled healer can sense and "read" the energy field of the person receiving the healing and provide healing equally effectively if the person is in the same room or across the world. There are many ways one might understand how this works. Much of our everyday experience involves the transfer of energy over long distances. In fact, satellite dishes are just one example. There are energies all about us traveling great distances in short amounts of time, including radio and magnetic waves.
From my own viewpoint, it is not necessary for the energy to “travel” anywhere as I am able to “see” the universe as being like a holograph, where the whole is contained in every part. Time and distance are only concepts which help define our “ordinary” third dimensional reality. The laws of nature which describe subtle energies in the higher dimensions are different than those which describe the denser frequencies including the physical body. As physics explores the layers of the structure of creation, phenomena become less and less localized.
Physicists describe a unified field. This is the field in which I work, actually an altered state of awareness in which the limitations of separation, of time and distance, me and you, and thoughts and forms have been transcended. It is oneness consciousness. Awareness itself, the one field of intelligence and “beingness” in which this whole phenomenal world is contained, is here and there, you and me. One love.
Please feel free to email me at email@example.com if you have any questions about the services I offer. I look forward to opening my heart as a channel for healing, growth and awareness in your life.

Consider the ripple effect, which refers to how positive or negative thoughts and actions expand outward to effect other's lives, who in turn will add to the "ripple" with their own thoughts and actions. It teaches that I should think before I perform actions because after the seed of action is sown I have to reap the fruit. Moreover, I do not receive only one fruit for every seed sown, I often get a whole crop, good or bad according to the action or seed. And so I practice mindfulness.
And, I watch. It's what do, I am a visual person. I see things hidden in the shadows that others may miss, because I practice awareness. I am always fascinated at how my perception of events evolves if I take a "time out" to gain insight before I take action, before I plant that seed.
According to Webster, perception is defined as insight, intuition, or knowledge gained by perceiving, and the capacity for such insight.
Judgement is different from perception. Judging is the formation of an opinion after consideration or deliberation. It is the mental ability to perceive and distinguish relationships and the capacity to form an opinion and to assess situations or circumstances, and draw sound conclusions. Good sense. Wisdom. Judgement gets a bad wrap. It's not an evil concept. It's the natural outcome of a good old "time out."
Lately, I have been watching a series of events in which judgements are passing as verdicts based on initial impressions, birthing lasting consequenses yet unrealized. There's a whole lot of reaction, and not much reflection going on. But I am watching, from the vantage point of my perch in the time out chair. It takes discipline to sit here, but I think its worth the effort. I have seen clearly that other people’s perceptions help build us, and judgements made hastily hinder us. As individuals, as communities, as human beings.
"Time out" gives me time to reflect about the things I see. Usually in the process of watching, what is unseen becomes more meaningful than what appears on the surface, much like an iceberg. Then, when I open my mouth to speak my mind, I do so with the intention of treating people the way I’d like to be treated by someone who has seen from another perspective: with honesty and caring.
"There's more here than meets the eye!"
"Might want to steer the ship in another direction!"
"Put your lifejacket on NOW!"
Sometimes when I consider what tremendous consequences come from little things, I am tempted to think there are no little things. Just things. And opportunities to grow wiser, practice good judgement, and speak your truth.
It's a beautiful day!

This is one of my favorite pieces for Spring. I hope you will take a moment and savor this offering. May you be blessed this lovely spring day!
Manifesto: The Mad Farmer Liberation Front
Love the quick profit, the annual raise, vacation with pay.
Want more of everything made.
Be afraid to know your neighbors and to die.
And you will have a window in your head.
Not even your future will be a mystery any more.
Your mind will be punched in a card and shut away in a little drawer.
When they want you to buy something they will call you.
When they want you to die for profit they will let you know.
So, friends, every day do something that won't compute.
Love the Lord. Love the world. Work for nothing.
Take all that you have and be poor.
Love someone who does not deserve it.
Denounce the government and embrace the flag.
Hope to live in that free republic for which it stands.
Give you approval to all you cannot understand.
for what man has not encountered he has not destroyed.
Ask the questions that have no answers.
Invest in the millennium.
Say that your main crop is the forest that you did not plant,
that you will not live to harvest.
Call that profit. Prophesy such returns.
Put your faith in the two inches of humus that will build under the trees
every thousand years.
Listen to carrion--put your ear close,
and hear the faint chattering of the songs that are to come.
Expect the end of the world.
Laugh. Laughter is immeasurable.
Be joyful though you have considered all the facts.
So long as women do not go cheap for power,
please women more than men.
Ask yourself: Will this satisfy a woman satisfied to bear a child?
Will this disturb the sleep of a woman near to giving birth?
Go with your love to the fields.
Lie easy in the shade. Rest your head in her lap.
Swear allegiance to what is nighest your thoughts.
As soon as the generals and politicos can predict the motions
of your mind, lose it.
Leave it as a sign to mark the false trail, the way you didn't go.
Be like the fox who makes more tracks than necessary,
some in the wrong direction.
