PamYounghansHighlighted Aspects this WeekAll times listed are PST:MON: Moon conjunct Uranus 1:17pm, Moon square Jupiter 5:26pm, Moon square Pluto 6:15pm, Ceres enters Scorpio; TUE: Moon opposite Mars 3:14pm; WED: Jupiter trine Chiron; THU: Mercury stations retrograde 1:43pm 

THE MOON is in Aries as we begin the week, and so interacts with each of the planets in our Cardinal Grand Cross on Monday and Tuesday (see exact times in the Highlighted Aspects list). The most noticeable effects are likely to be Monday afternoon and evening (Pacific Standard Time), when the Moon aligns with Uranus and then squares both Jupiter and Pluto.

Although the Moon’s aspects are generally fleeting in their effects, lasting two to three hours at most, once again we should get some insights into the larger influence of the Cardinal Grand Cross while these aspects are at work. If we pay attention to how we’re feeling, and what situations attract our attention during these times, we may get some clarity on what we’re being asked to work on, and how we’re being asked to change during these first six months of 2014.

ON WEDNESDAY, a flowing trine aspect between Jupiter and Chiron is exact. As these two planets interact throughout this week, we are supported in strengthening our hope in the future and our trust in the universe — very important tools to have in our pockets during times of change.

This is the second of three Jupiter-Chiron trines in a nine-month period. The first occurred on August 21, 2013. The third will be part of a Grand Water Trine between Jupiter, Chiron and Saturn, which is strongest around May 15 of this year. Continue reading »

Would you like to buy a house for one dollar? If someone came up to you on the street and asked you that question, you would probably respond by saying that it sounds too good to be true. But this is actually happening in economically-depressed cities all over America. Of course there are a number of reasons why you might want to think twice before buying any of these homes, and I will get into those reasons in just a little bit.

First, however, it is worth noting that many of the cities where these “free houses” are available were once some of the most prosperous cities in the entire country. In fact, the city of Detroit once had the highest per capita income in the entire nation. But as millions of good jobs have been shipped overseas, these once prosperous communities have degenerated into rotting, decaying hellholes. Now homes that once housed thriving middle class families cannot even be given away. This is happening all over America, and what we are witnessing right now is only just the beginning.

Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman helped the homeless.

Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman helped the homeless.

sage:  Big changes can start so small.  It’s nice to see how Utah fixed the same problem with love and compassion (Story 1) that other states tried to fix with sledgehammers as in Story 2.  Thanks to Andrea.

Story 1 - Republican State Gives Free Houses to Moochers, Cuts Homelessness by 74 Percent

By David Weigel, slate.com – January 28, 2014

http://tinyurl.com/kwv2zxd

Eight years ago, under Gov. Jon Huntsman, Utah started an experiment in which chronically homeless people—first 17, then 2,000—were given apartments and full-time caseworkers.

The goal: Instead of shrugging and cursing when the homeless showed up half-dead at emergency rooms, they’d try to get them into shelter and, hopefully, independent living. If that didn’t work, they’d still keep the apartments.

Data from other cities made the bureaucrats’ argument for them. From the 10-year Housing First plan:

A San Francisco study found that placing homeless people in permanent supportive housing reduced their emergency room visits by more than half. In 2006, the Denver Housing First Collaborative published a study of chronically homeless individuals, comparing the costs of services for two years before and after placement in permanent supportive housing. The group found a 34 percent reduction in ER costs and inpatient nights declined 80 percent. Continue reading »

SandraWalterBlessings dear Light Tribe,

Activations are coming much more frequently as we go through the acceleration of 2014. I AM not guided to be an energy reporter, however today marks an acceleration, so I felt I would share. Typically these kind of updates are on my facebook page, not on this site. Just a heads up.

This morning I received the long, high-pitched signal in the right ear of Incoming New Light. Old-paradigmers may associate right ear signals with dark energy or something stepping into your field. That is outdated intel. Level up from battle phase, please. If you’re stuck in fight mode, set a new agreement with your Higher Levels to switch the right-earsomething’s in my field signal to a Galactic Level incoming light, energy or activation signal.

energyAngelic Guides: Are We There Yet?, channeled through Taryn Crimi, January 27, 2014 at http://angelicguides.wordpress.com

Today we would like to focus your attention upon the energy which many of you are undoubtedly feeling. Have you felt the energy come to a screeching halt yet? We mentioned a few weeks ago that you would likely be met with some very strong energy that made you feel as though you hit a brick wall. So we would like to take this time to readdress this in hopes of alleviating many of your worries and concerns.

Most of you are feeling an extreme drop in your motivation to do just about anything. If it is not absolutely necessary then you just don’t have the energy or the drive to pursue it. So what happened? As we mentioned the energy which helped kick start this year gave many of you a tremendous upsurge of energy which left you feeling excited, anxious and the feeling of great anticipation for what this wonderful new year will bring with it. However that energy is stronger than many of you are accustomed to holding and as a result many of you have required the time necessary to help you reflect and acclimate to the strong surge in energy.

Let us share with you an analogy to help you better understand what is happening on an energetic level. Imagine a large dam on a raging river; when it is fully open the water is able to flow in abundance, without any resistance; however when that dam is constricted, so much so that it affects the waters ability to pour in, the water becomes backed up. It affects the waters ability to flow through. And as a result the river on the other side of the dam is much smaller because there is a large blockage. The water is only trickeling through, but to suddenly release the dam would allow such a powerful rush of water to burst through that it would cause more harm than good. By slowly opening the damn, it will allow for the water to gently increase rather than bursting though it and causing the dam to break. Continue reading »

Ronna Herman – Message From Archangel Michael  – 29 January 2014

ronna1aBeloved masters, you are beginning to comprehend how different your physical reality will be as you gain access to and integrate more of the more refined frequencies of the higher realms. You will also realize how radically your future life’s experiences will change. As everyone’s telepathic and clairsentience skills are perfected, you will understand why truth, honor and integrity will become paramount. We are aware of the Light patternsthat you emit, and also the resonance of your energetic signature, whether it is harmonious or discordant. We see your radiance or lack thereof, and you cannot hide who you truly are from us. In the near future, this gift will become the norm for many advanced Light Workers as well.

You are not only seeking to return to balance and harmony within, but it is your Higher Self’s greatest desire that you reclaim and perfect the beautiful Soul Song that is uniquely yours. The spectrums of Light and of sound in our realm of existence are far beyond your senses and even beyond your imagination. In your reality, you can only experience a minuscule portion of the celestial sounds, the radiant Light, and the power and majesty of our environment.

Fear and your ego are your greatest enemies. As we have explained in recent past messages, the negative, stressful events that you are experiencing at this time are activated from within to help you eradicate and/or refine past conditioning. Tests and situations of tolerance are created to help you acknowledge any restrictive, damaging thought patterns that you may not be aware of at a conscious level. Universal Law states that the frequencies of your thought patterns must be refined and lifted in order to tap into the next higher level of consciousness. You must qualify or become attuned to each new level of conscious awareness before you may integrate the vibrational energies it contains. Once you have mastered that level to a certain degree, you will be ready to receive its unique gifts and benefits. Continue reading »

Based on the US Food and Drug Administration’s own safety analyses, 30 antibiotic feed additives formerly approved for “nontherapeutic use” on food animals would not meet current agency health standards if submitted for approval today, a new report shows.

Previously undisclosed FDA documents reveal that 30 penicillin and tetracycline antibiotic feed additives reviewed by the agency from 2001 to 2010 would likely fail to meet modern safety requirements for nontherapeutic livestock use if they were proposed as new products, according to a report by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC).

Nontherapeutic use of antibiotics means they are not used to treat diseases, but are rather used for growth promotion in animals or to counteract disease amid crowded or unsanitary conditions for livestock and poultry in industrial farming.

The FDA documents – obtained by the NRDC through a public information request and litigation – show that 18 of the 30 additives were found to be “high risk” for “exposing humans to antibiotic-resistant bacteria through the food supply,” NRDC writes. The other 12 were not supported with enough evidence from the drugs’ manufacturers for the FDA to definitively determine their safety. In fact, 26 of the products did not even meet the FDA’s own safety standards from 1973.

Further, the FDA has not revoked any of the antibiotic additive approvals or required any drug manufacturer to resubmit a product for a new safety assessment following the agency’s reviews, though two were voluntarily withdrawn by their makers. Continue reading »

The energies of the 2014 Horse Year – celebrated on Chinese New Year this Friday – began coming in soon after January 1, initiating a new cycle that will impact you and everyone you love.

Decisions you make in any new cycle are important, for they can have a profound impact on the rest of the cycle. The decisions or choices you make now, as the Horse Year begins and unfolds, can be even more significant than those you made in 2013 – impacting you in big ways throughout 2014 and beyond.

In this article are some tips to help you make these crucial decisions with empowerment, and to begin the year on a high note.

What you will find in this cycle are many new opportunities and doors that were not open to you before. Choices involving new people, new projects, and new directions will be coming fast and furiously.

Noticing Open Doors

The key to accessing them is staying awake and conscious – noticing the doors as they open so you can take action. That action will always involve choice and you want that choice to come from conscious awareness. Remember: even taking no action at an open door is a choice.

To make the best choice, you must be clear about what you want. That takes mastery. You are learning to differentiate between what your conditioned ego-self wants and what is in your highest good to want.

You must be grounded and in your heart to make the optimal choices. It’s not enough to mentally say that you are in your heart – you must truly reside there and operate from there. That sounds easy, as though intent were enough. In fact, it involves great skill and lots of practice. Continue reading »

tomkenyonAccording to the Hathors, our life force (or sekhem) is “birthed” in the solar plexus (the Third Chakra), and from here this subtle life force radiates throughout the body while simultaneously descending into the First and Second Chakras where it becomes a primal power for the ascent of consciousness as well as “sexual” energy.

This sound meditation energizes your solar plexus and gently elevates the quality of your own life force, which has a direct bearing on your consciousness.

Shortly after hearing that NASA had confirmed the magnetic pole reversal of our Sun, the Hathors encouraged me to visit the sound archives and listen to a sound meditation they had given during a Hathor Intensive in 2009.

They guided me to edit out the beginning and end of this meditation, leaving the middle section saying that these particular tonal patterns would be of great benefit when working with the solar plexus especially now that the Sun has shifted its magnetic poles.

The idea that the Sun is pivotal to the transformation of our human consciousness has been promulgated by the Hathors from the very beginning of my interactions with them.

They are of the opinion that this particular solar shift has vast implications for our future, and it is an ideal time to work with our own Inner Sun (the solar plexus).

This sound meditation is a potent ally for those of us wishing to amplify our life force and to explore the interface between body/mind and spirit. Continue reading »

American-Kabuki-New-7-8-13-fEverything you encounter will interact with your energy. Energy exchange is a ubiquitous fact of life. Your physical embodiment depends on energy exchange with the earth, air, sun, and water and the various components of vibrations bound up as photons, magnetism and the highly condensed and slowed down encapsulations of light known as matter (E=MC2). There is a ginormous amount of light in a single atom. Scientists learned this in the 1940s and created a bomb out of that very simple fact of existence.

Your eternal essence itself is a flowing current of love emerging from the One that simply IS. I, the every lasting ONE, that makes up all that is, and all the life forms that emerge from it, that creates the dark and the light, so that color itself can emerge and be seen. Even what our eyes perceive as dark is filled with photons and wavelengths that are simply beyond our range of sensory perception.

A very long time ago, the embodiments of “I” decided they’d like to know what it would be like to be separate from the ONE, if it were possible. You won’t find any books on this beginning of the experiment, most of the beings in the experiment of separation don’t know how it started, they either were not of the first generation of creative beings that had that knowledge.

When all is ONE, and 1 x 1 = 1 and 1 /1 = 1 and ∞ / ∞ = 1 and ∞/1 = ∞ ∞ x ∞ = ∞ How do you create separation from the ONE? By hierarchy and illusion. Which are really one in the same for at their core, for they pretend not to notice the existence of the ONE. But oh does separation speak of the ONE! Continue reading »

Here in the spiritual realms we are all deeply indebted to you for your ongoing and frequently exhausting Earth journeys as you work non-stop (yes, you do really work non-stop, waking, sleeping, and dreaming) to bring your brothers and sisters to awakening by constantly sending them Love.  What you are doing, and achieving, is quite amazing.  Each of your individual functions and contributions in this ongoing awakening process is essential to it; without your combined collective intentions and efforts it would not happen.

Do not let the fact that for the most part you do not get any sense of the importance and significance of what you are doing, or of our presence among you assisting you, worry you or cause you anxiety, because what you are doing is enormously powerful and effective, and only you can do it.  And of course when you awaken what you have brought about will be there in plain sight for you to see, acknowledge, and probably marvel at.  You are, and always will be greatly honored for your Earth journeys, where for most of the time it has seemed to you that you are struggling unsupported in a task that is way beyond your capabilities.  It is not! And you are bringing it rapidly to a state of fulfillment.

The task you chose to embark on for this particular earth life has been very difficult for many of you, and before you chose to do it you knew that this would be the case, but, with the help of wisdom, advice, and mentoring from your spiritual guides you planned most carefully to ensure that it would be well within your capabilities. You knew that it would be hard because you would be unable to remember any details of your pre-planning and consequently each moment would arrive, as it were, unannounced, presenting you with surprises and choices that were often unappealing.  However, you also knew that you could not fail because of the divine field of Love enveloping you and supporting you in every moment.  There truly are no accidents, every thing that occurs is part of a larger plan to provide all involved with the lessons that they wish to learn and thus bring them firmly and steadily forwards towards their awakening.  And that awakening is most definitely a done deal, nothing can prevent it.

Giant leaps in awakening and in Quantum consciousness are amongst us, ladies and gentlemen! MAGNIFICENT connections, shifts, changes, growth and expansion, as well as experiences of the most beautiful things one could not even imagine were possible a few years ago? Well it is reality in this now! It is NOW and here that we are here and it is HERE brothers and sisters of the Light.

You might slightly begin to adjust to all and everything that is unfolding within you and in your personal reality and environment because we are in for a big treat and this is just the beginning for you all. A wondrous spectrum of colors and energies are amidst us all on the planet because WE bring them in into these Earthly templates as we are those conduits of pure Light. Beware! INCOMING transmission on the move!
Now a lot of fresh water is required to hold the Light potential that you are as a Source, balance is key and is required, being centered at ALL times by grounding you thoroughly and of course expansion through meditation to be able to hold the keys within.
For me personally so much has changed, shifted and expanded in such a short time frame, it is not possible to even begin to comprehend it all. Let me share some few examples with you all, where many of you as well are finding themselves in the midst of.
The new gifts are here, you just need to tap into yours by raising your consciousness and awareness that you are the new Earth yourself as a living being, holding your own keys and expansion of Light. Hold the vibration strongly now and hold your focus within at all times, very important! There might be a lot of distraction in your world going on but nevertheless the key is to go within at all times; it is there where your Source lies and not in the dramas that are unfolding.
Time is stretching her legs at this time and is taking larger steps into infinity so it can gradually dissolve into this one time line that is the eternal now. The more humans are aware and conscious of this one time line that is timeLESS, the more it not only becomes your reality but also that of the collective. This is something I have strongly and personally been experiencing. Continue reading »

PamYounghansHighlighted Aspects this Week
TUE: Pluto semisquare Mercury; WED: Uranus sextile Sun, Jupiter sesquisquare Mercury, Venus semisquare Mercury; THU: New Moon 1:38pm PST; FRI: Pluto opposite Jupiter, Mercury enters Pisces, Venus stations direct 12:48pm PST, Jupiter quincunx Sun

OUR ANNUAL New Moon in Aquarius is this Thursday, at about 11 degrees of the sign. Each year, the Sun and Moon align in Aquarius to encourage us to greater individuality and authenticity, while also helping us understand how completely we are interconnected. If that sounds like a paradox, it’s what we can often expect with Aquarius.

Even the symbol for the sign seems contradictory. Aquarius is known as the Water Bearer, and the symbol shows a man pouring what appears to be water out of an urn. And yet, Aquarius is an air sign — so what’s this about water?

THE CONTRADICTION can be explained a bit. Yes, the man in the Aquarius symbol is pouring something that looks like water. But, it is more symbolic than literal, since what is being released are the waters of knowledge, also called the snakes of knowledge.

It is one of the common traits of Aquarius to want to share what they know, to spill forth the waters of knowledge. And, it is most fulfilling for this sign if the information shared is unique or surprising and helps enhance the listener’s perception or understanding of reality.

THE SABIAN SYMBOL for this week’s New Moon takes the theme of “knowledge download” to a different level: Continue reading »

  • S.KOREA TO HOLD EMERGENCY MEETING ON JAN. 26 TO DISCUSS MARKETS

Bloomberg has the details: South Korea Vice Finance Minister Choo Kyung Ho will host an emergency meeting tomorrow at 11 a.m. with counterparts from Bank of Korea and financial regulators to discuss market instabilities in emerging economies including Argentina, ministry says in text message.

So what happens if there is a, gasp, 5% drop from all time S&P500 highs – Janet Yellen shows up on every TV channel and tells broke viewers now is the time to buy stocks and pay for them in 4 easy installments using their favorite EBT card. What about a 10% correction: the army gets mobilized? And should the unthinkable happens and the centrally-planned “market” crash by 20% then nothing short of DefCon 1 and a 24/7 curfew would be acceptable.

We joke, but this is what happens in a time when the “confidence” of the entire world is defined by the daily move straight line higher in the S&P, and the tiniest derivation from this path results in sheer panic.

Nothing happens without our permission. In one way or another, consciously and/or subconsciously, we give our approval or disapproval by our actions, words and intentions.

Over time our accountability increases.

A mad world swirls around us in this manifestation with our inherent agreement. Without our complicit cooperation in support of this insane system none of this would be happening. No worldwide massacres would happen without soldiers; no economic rape would take place without bankers and merchants; and no social degradation and control would be perpetrated on humanity without willing teachers, administrators and enforcers.

It takes the cooperation of the people. When we cooperate with them, they succeed.

When we don’t, they don’t. It’s that simple.

Why?…

Because waking up to the true reality around us is too much work, and way too uncomfortable for most of the entranced masses. If you acknowledge things are as seriously wrong as they are and the reality of their true devastating effects on human life, you might have to change and do something about it.

Most people have developed coping devices that have become a way of life. The most effective is outright denial that it’s all that bad or even happening at all. You’ll see that everywhere if you’re an awake and aware soul, and it can be disheartening at times.

It’s somewhat simplistic but denial is a pretty good catch all. Continue reading »

Wow, who put more accelerant down!!??  By my second reading yesterday my brains felt like tinsel on a Christmas tree on a windy day, not to mention weirdly dizzy, kinda like the dizzy was deep inside my head (no doubt emerging from the pineal gland itself) and breathed itself outwards, then collapsed back into itself.  Just an ongoing weird feeling thru the day until my last connection of the day, when all that dizziness from the day seemed to wad itself up and got wedged in the middle of my heart chakra.  Ouchies even!!

Thru it all tho, I am noticing a contrast happening in each day, with every connection.  I do want to start with my first lady the day before yesterday (on the 23rd.)  Her entire energy field unfolded very much like the image I used in my sharing that morning:

That was not my original art I was going to use, actually there were two images prior to that one I was settling on and something deep inside of me became very unsettled and started looking again.  When I had seen this above image, it caught my breath and heart at the same time and so of course, I used it.  However, I was still surprised when it became the very tapestry of my first lady’s field of light.  Thank god the wisdom of understanding came with the presentation of her light field too.

With the introduction of the Fourth Amendment Protection Act this week, Mississippi became the tenth state in the country to consider legislation to make life difficult for the NSA’s ongoing mass surveillance programs.

Senate Bill 2438 (SB2438), introduced by Sen. Chris McDaniel, would make it the official policy of Mississippi to “refuse material support, participation or assistance to any federal agency which claims the power, or with any federal law, rule, regulation or order which purports to authorize the collection of electronic data or metadata of any person(s) pursuant to any action not based on a warrant that particularly describes the person(s), place(s) and thing(s) to be searched or seized.”

In Mississippi, this would primarily address the use of data and metadata in court and criminal proceedings, thwarting one practical effect of what the NSA does with all the data it collects.  Continue reading »

Back in the years just before the previous housing bubble burst (not to be confused with the current, even more acute one), one person did the math on subprime, realized that the housing – and credit bubble – collapse was imminent, and warned anyone who cared to listen – almost nobody did. That man was Kyle Bass, and because he had the guts to put the money where his mouth was, he made a lot of money. Fast forward to 2014 when subprime is all the rage again and the subprime bubble is bigger than ever: it may comes as a surprise to some that in 2013, subprime debt was one of the best performing fixed income instruments, returning a whopping 17% in a year when most other debt instruments generated negative returns. And this time, while Kyle Bass is busy – collecting nickels (each costing a dime) perhaps – it is someone else who has stepped into Bass’ Cassandra shoes: that someone is Jeff Gundlach.

From Bloomberg:

“These properties are rotting away,” Gundlach, 54, said last week on a conference call with investors, about homes stuck in foreclosure pipelines, adding that it could take six years to resolve defaulted loans made to the least creditworthy borrowers before the real-estate crash. Those residences are a sign of an uneven U.S. recovery, which has left blighted neighborhoods in cities from Los Angeles to Detroit and about 8 million borrowers still owing more on their mortgages than their homes are worth.

WIKI - Third Eye1Daniel Raphael & Dylan Charles, Staff
Waking Times

The pineal gland has been at the core of spiritual traditions dating back thousands of years, spanning all inhabited continents. Prominently carved onto Buddhist statues, ceremoniously painted onto tribal faces, and deceptively displayed in the Vatican square, the pineal gland, known as the Third Eye, or Seat of the Soul, is still shrouded in mystery.

One of the culprits to the endless poverty, warfare, and illness in society today lies in humanity’s collective disconnection from their soul and their true divine nature. The key to awakening from this destructive dream lies in the pineal gland, a crystalline, cosmic antenna integrating multidimensional life-source into our five sense reality. Throughout the past few decades however, fluoride and other toxins have calcified this soul-gate, blocking many human beings from their divine guidance and limiting their personal power.

Iboga is an ancient shamanic plant medicine derived from the root bark of a curious tree, the Tabernanthe Iboga, which has been used for millenia by the Bwiti tribe of Equatorial West Africa as a ceremonial sacrament. Taken for its vast physical and psychological healing properties and as a right of passage and introduction to the spirit world, it opens the third eye and awakens one to their true spiritual nature. When ingested, the spirit of the plant awakens, projecting a celestial film within the mind’s eye of the initiate, teaching experientially through holographic vision and divine dialog. Also ridding the body of mind-numbing toxins, and freeing the mind from detrimental programming and limiting beliefs, this plant medicine offers serious promise as a tool for Western seekers in our collective quest to break free from the matrix and reconnect with Mother Earth.

Sandra Walter Ascension GuideIt is best not to be preoccupied with the side-effects of these intense waves. The goal is expansion of consciousness and a dimensional shift; the body, if commanded and supported to do so, will compliment this journey as best it can.

A lot of folks have been asking about pronounced symptoms. There is a very detailed module on the Body Consciousness in the Ascension Course which covers everything the body will go through during Ascension and how to support and accelerate that process.

Personally, I AM not one to dwell on symptomatic side-effects of the Ascension Process. Every side-effect is purposeful and will demonstrate:

- what is happening in your process
- present things to you which much be released in order to go further
- pinpoint areas of the body which store deep emotional baggage which cause dis-ease, aging, decay of the physical structure.

Remember we are taking the body right through this journey, up to the point of transcendence where it becomes transformed into a more crystalline-based projection.

Every dis-ease is caused by emotion, and amplified by the mind and ego through behavior, habits and beliefs. Symptoms which are not related to releasing are what I would consider a true Ascension side-effect.

Collective Side-effects
We are a collective consciousness here – no matter how independent you get from the collective, you are still subject to the effects of new light on the planet. Some folks synch with the planetary consciousness and feel her adjustments, some align with the Sun and feel the influence of galactic frequencies coming into our Solar System. Regardless, there are some upgrades, activations and accelerations which occur en masse, affecting many people in a  similar way. Continue reading »
