Get a Quantum Jump to Make This an Amazing Year

This can be an amazing year for you, regardless of whether or not you made (or broke) any new year’s resolutions. At this time when the placebo effect has mysteriously doubled in efficacy over the past thirty years as people benefit from sugar pills and “sham” surgery so much that Harvard University has created an institute to study the placebo effect… it’s becoming increasingly clear that there is a powerful mind-matter connection.

The mind-matter connection became crystal clear to me in the early 1980s when I came to UC Berkeley as an undergraduate student in the Physics program. At that time, I was one of the very few caucasians in the Physics program, and one of just a handful of women. When I sat down in one of my first lecture halls, surrounded by hundreds of mostly male Asian students, I experienced a very primal sense of fear–a feeling of “you don’t belong here.”

Fortunately, this was a familiar feeling that I’d learned to deal with before, as just two years earlier I’d been the only girl in my high school physics class. One would think such things don’t really matter, except every time a female high school student walked past the windows in our high school physics class, the teacher stopped talking mid-sentence, silence descended upon the class, and all eyes watched the young lady stroll the length of the classroom as she walked past outside.

I’d learned while taking advanced math classes and physics classes in high school to pretend that “lots of young girls just like you do great in math and science,” and this was the same cheery inner pep talk I gave myself that first year as a Physics major at UC Berkeley.

It turns out such an attitude of “faking it ‘til you make it” is enormously useful for all of us as we get older, as scientific studies show that those of us who harbor negative prejudices about old age are statistically more likely to end up the way we presume older people to be. When a group of people were asked to  describe qualities typically found in the elderly, those who expected people to deteriorate over time were found by researchers in this longitudinal study to suffer just such a fate, whereas those who viewed the elderly in more favorable light were statistically more likely to be found prospering and thriving many years later.

If you’re wondering what can possibly account for people being healed by fake surgeries and sugar pills, and aging according to largely subconsciously held prejudices about old people… you’re not alone.

Fortunately for all of us, we’re now living through one of the most exciting times in the history of the world when our entire way of thinking about ourselves in relation to the world is being transformed. We’re now at the dawn of the Quantum Age, which was officially ushered in back in September 2013 when Google and NASA’s Ames Research Center purchased the first quantum computer, the D-Wave Two, for $17 million. Thanks to a modicum of transparency with the US government financing of part of this project, we can now track some of the progress in quantum programing at the QUantum Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (QUAIL) at NASA.

So what’s the big deal about this being the dawn of the Quantum Age, and how does that relate to this being such a great year for you?


I was inspired to write my newest book, Quantum Jumps: An Extraordinary Science of Happiness and Prosperity, after seeing a convergence in results from a number of scientific studies showing that quantum phenomena such as superposition of states, entanglement, and teleportation are happening on the macroscopic, human scale. The significance of such phenomena was not lost on me, since for the past fifteen years I’ve been conducting surveys and sharing first-hand reports of a wide variety of seemingly inexplicable experiences through the RealityShifters.com web site. What’s truly exciting now is that thanks to findings from a variety of scientific studies, it’s clear that:

  1. We most likely live in a holographic multiverse of interconnected parallel possible worlds, and
  2. Quantum effects are now being regularly observed on the macroscopic scale (so for example, we can witness quantum entanglement in diamonds that we can hold in our hands).

When we consider some of the quantum phenomena we’re now witnessing in the natural world in birds navigational abilities, in the way plants photosynthesize, and even in the way our very own noses work, we begin to see how we are receiving extraordinary insights into how we benefit from quantum entanglement, quantum coherence, and quantum superposition of states in our everyday lives. Nature shows us that quantum processing is built into plants and animals in such a way that provides something akin to intuitive reasoning that is an integral part of optimizing efficiency in a number of ways. Plants are able to instantly determine the most efficient way to transform a photon to stored energy, by doing something akin to simultaneously comparing all possible pathways, and choosing the best.

For us humans, this kind of natural efficiency is a bit like telling ourselves when taking a test, “You know the answer to this,” and then doing significantly better as a result. In fact, scientists have proven that this type of placebo treatment does indeed improve peoples’ test scores.

Put another way, we can consider the ways that quantum effects can improve our daily lives as doing something American psychologist William James once stated as, “If you want a quality, act as if you already have it.”

So one of the best ways to make this year one of your best years yet is simply to tell yourself that is exactly what is happening now. See what happens when you think or say aloud:

This is one of the best years of my life. 

And just for good measure, feel free to add my favorite open-ended question:

How good can it get?!

How to Create Inspiration & Motivation

Steve Pavlina

If you do any creative work, I’m sure you’ve experienced this dilemma: Should you ever work when you aren’t inspired, or should you wait for inspiration?

I’ve had to face this situation many times, whether it involved designing a new computer game or writing an original blog entry. Sometimes inspiration strikes me at the most inopportune times, like at 3am while lying in bed, but if I’m smart enough to take advantage of it, I can crank out volumes of productive work in a short period of time. Those experiences often feel timeless and transcendent, as if I’ve been tapped on the shoulder by some higher creative power. But other times as I sit at my computer, I feel empty, distracted, or uninspired, and if I tried to push through it, I’m still be able to get some work done, but I won’t produce solutions and ideas that are nearly as elegant or brilliant as the inspired work. Sound familiar?

I place a premium on the value of inspired work. Although I have degrees in computer science and math and have been trained in many left-brain problem solving techniques, I’m also left-handed and approach technical subjects from a right-brained perspective. I rarely use methodical, left-brained, step-by-step processes to solve problems. In high school I would often try to solve math or physics problems without using any of the formulas that were taught in class that week. I’d dismiss the left-brained solution I was expected to regurgitate and tried to approach problems creatively, especially the most challenging and complex ones. I’d take an advanced calculus problem and attempt to solve it using other tools like algebra or geometry or the laws of physics. And the interesting thing is that my solutions were often shorter and far more elegant than what the textbooks had intended. I believed there would be little value in learning to solve problems the same way everyone else did; such people would be a dime a dozen. But there would always be a treasured place in the world for the person who could solve problems creatively.

On the other hand, I also value hard work and discipline. I certainly have the option of barreling through and working even when I’m not inspired. But I greatly dislike using self-discipline for creative work. Discipline is fine for repetitive or highly uncreative work though, but it rarely creates elegant solutions. My left brain may be satisfied with a disciplined approach, but it’s anathema to my right brain.

I’m also impatient, so I don’t like waiting for inspiration to strike, especially when it seems to be taking an extended vacation.

One day I became curious and questioned why sometimes I felt inspired and other times I didn’t. Why would inspiration seem to abandon me for weeks and then pay me a visit when I was five miles into a 10-mile run? Was there some kind of pattern?

And most of all, could inspiration be created? Did I have to wait for it to arrive, or was there anything I could do to invite it? I studied creative problem solving techniques, but none of them seemed to work consistently, and sometimes they would take a long time to generate results.

Eventually I figured out that inspiration can definitely be created. I’ve been using this technique for many years, and it’s one reason I never run out of ideas to write and speak about. I feel as if I have an infinite supply. It’s very simple too.

Clarifying Intent

Whenever I want to feel inspired to do creative work, I stop and take a moment to clarify my intent. I get really clear about what it is I want to do, and then I verbalize that intent. Then I let go and wait, usually a few minutes at most.

An example intent would be the one I used for this blog entry. At first I sat down to write at 4:30am and felt wholly uninspired. I had a list of ideas to write about, but none of them seemed too inspiring to me. So I formed the (very simple) intent, “I intend to write a creative new blog entry that will benefit many readers.” Then I released the intent and waited. Within about 30 seconds, I had the idea to write on this topic, and the words flowed with effortless ease.

Here’s my current theory on how this works. My intent acts like a thought wave that projects out into the universe, and after a short period of time, that wave reflects back to me in the form of creative ideas. It’s like a dolphin using sonar to echo-locate objects, except that I use it to echo-locate creative ideas. I feel as if I’m putting out a specific form of sonar into some imaginary world of pure thought. When my intent collides with an idea that resonates with it, it creates a reflection wave back to the source, which I perceive as an idea or impulse. The first ideas that pop into my head are the ones I go with.

Intents don’t work the same way as goals. If you constrain your intent too heavily, then you won’t receive any reflection back because nothing will resonate with it perfectly. So try to keep your intentions open-ended and high-level unless the specific details are truly important to you. If you create intents that are too rigid, you may eliminate the possibility of a holistic solution. For example, if you focus on the intent to solve a low-level problem, and your creativity still feels blocked, it could be that you aren’t supposed to solve that problem at all – you need to rework something at a higher level to eliminate the problem entirely.

I find this approach works incredibly well. Whenever it seems like it isn’t working, then I know it’s because my own thoughts are creating an interference pattern and canceling each other out. I’m putting out conflicting intents – understand that every thought is an intent. That’s when I need to back up and form a higher-level, more general intent that can escape the low-level noise. If you toss a pebble into a calm lake, you’ll see waves rippling out from the source. But if you toss a pebble into rough waters, the ripples will be gobbled up with the existing waves. So in that case you need to go to a place where the waters are more calm, rising above your own conflicting thoughts, especially those involving fear, worry, or stress.

For example, if I came up with a blank after putting out an intent for creative writing ideas, I’d step back and form a new intent, like, “I intend to use the next hour in service to the greatest good of all.” That’s a more general intent, and it can help bypass any blocks. Perhaps I’m feeling blocked because I don’t feel I should be writing at all right now. Maybe there’s something more important I need to do. Intents work holistically, so it’s important to allow for plenty of flexibility.

So begin with a specific intent, and if you don’t like the reflections you’re receiving, keep backing up and forming new intents until the reflections suit you.

Once you master this process, you should never have to push through creative work when you aren’t feeling creative. While you can still produce some output during those times, you probably know that the work will seem lifeless and uninspired when you look back on it later. Clarifying and focusing your intent only takes a few seconds most of the time, and you’ll begin to see that your intentions always manifest when you’re completely clear about what you want.

So don’t wait for inspiration. Use this simple technique to actively invite inspiration and unleash the flow of creative ideas.

Happier Living: 5 Easy Ways to Be More Positive

Diana Reid | Purpose Fairy

“Positive anything is better than negative nothing.” ~ Elbert Hubbard

It can be laborious to stay positive at times, especially when things take a slight turn away from how we imagine our plans should turn out. But what really matters is staying positive most of the time, not letting the fears of what ‘might’ happen control you into getting worked up and stressed out. Incorporating positivity into your life has many benefits some you probably didn’t even know about!

For me when I was younger (late teens, early twenties) you could say I was a positive thinking person to the point where people used to ask me whenever a crisis occurred, what are you going to do? Aren’t you worried? I always stayed positive and knew the outcome would be ok, but as I got older this wasn’t the case with more responsibilities to take on at work and home and becoming uncertain about my future my fears took over leaving me not knowing what to do until I remembered how I used to deal with these kind of circumstances. That was to stay positive, no matter what. You can too by following the ‘5 ways to stay positive’ revealed within this guide as well as exploring the benefits of being a positive person.

While some people are more positive than others you can become a more positive person even if you think this is not true.

Why Should I Bother?

Why shouldn’t you! For a start research shows you can live longer just by being a positive thinker as well as a smaller chance of becoming depressed or distressed and not to mention, you’re less likely to catch a cold. Overall positive people are happier and healthier. Learning to become more positive will allow you to cope better in stressful times.

5 easy ways to be more positive

1. Affirmations

Which are known as positive statements, let’s try some out:

I am so happy and grateful I now have _______ (fill in the blank)

It’s so wonderful to ________

Truth is every day we are subconsciously or even consciously making thousands of negative statements about ourselves or about the circumstances in our life. So in order to stay positive we must consciously make positive statements that also use words that have an emotion like ‘happy’ or ‘grateful’ as I used in the example affirmations above. The key is to try and ‘feel’ the emotion of the words used.

2. Expect The Best

What exactly is the outcome you want? This question relates to a goal, your day or your life.

Do you always expect the worst and then get it?

Begin now to expect the best by focusing on the outcome you want ONLY the outcome you want. NO. MATTER. WHAT.

This has worked for me to stay focused on the good in my life then to have what I expect.

3. Surround Yourself With The Right People

Motivational speaker Jim Rohn once said “we are the average of the 5 people we spend the most time with”.

Think about it, how you feel, what you say and what you think depends on who you are with most of the time. When I spend my time around happy and positive people I feel energized. I am also a lot more optimistic about my future.

“Surround yourself with people who make you happy. People who make you laugh, who help you when you’re in need. People who genuinely care. They are the ones worth keeping in your life. Everyone else is just passing through.” ~ Karl Marx (composer)

4. Make a Good Start to The Day

“The first hour of the morning is the rudder of the day.” ~ Henry Ward Beecher

According to research (and experience) how you start your day determines the rest of it. Do you dread what lies ahead or do you wake up thankful and excited?

Make a good start to the day by first by giving thanks to see another day, second for the bed you slept in! Then think about all the great possibilities your day could bring. Don’t just take my word for it, try it.

Investing in Your True Self ….If Not Now, When?

Ronda LaRue, MS | all things healing

I wonder what would happen in your life if one day you said:

“Enough! It’s time for me! I am going to take time out to go in. I am going to make time to find and reconnect with myself and with what really matters!”

What would happen if — when the, “nay saying voice of reason” came in and filled your head with all the justifiable reasons that you cannot possibly take the time, spend the money, or leave your family obligations for 3-4 days to retreat from the world and to reconnect with you — if you consciously overrode that seeming logic, and took the, “illogical leap of faith” to invest in yourself, in your spirit, in listening for life’s deepest meaning and purpose?

As one who has lived through my own struggles, many mistakes, grievances, addictions, dark night of the soul despair and spiritual awakening — and having now worked with hundreds of women and men who come to retreats with me for personal spiritual guidance and to learn the life-changing Soul Arts tools for finding and following one’s own wisdom in every day real life — I wish to offer you this:

You are absolutely not alone!

Each one of us carries an early wounding inside that has, at least in part, shut us down from remembering and fully expressing our true self. Each of us has places we feel guilt and shame over our failures and mistakes. Each of us has feelings of betrayal and grief. We each have insecurities that we cover over with our, “makeup masks” and personas that we put in place to hopefully make us more like-able (aka safe). Each of us has very likely felt the fear of financial ruin and becoming a helpless, destitute, “bag lady” (or man) if we dared to follow our hearts.

What I have come to realize from my life work as a spiritual teacher is that people who are not in this line of work, don’t have the benefit of meeting and talking with others and realizing that they are not alone in their secret most inner feelings of self-doubt. These are universal feelings that arise from unconscious attachments and self-defining ego structures that block us from the realization of our true nature.

Our fear-thoughts and places of self-doubt are, in fact, an invitation to remember who we really are. These inner struggles are what bring us to seeking, to awakening and to growing in daily expression of authentic relationship with life. We are simply not taught in our culture HOW to recognize these invitations to awaken, or how to employ them in a healing and life-transforming shift of consciousness necessary to true self-realization.

Let me please ask you to consider this: If you realized that by taking time out to go in, you were, in truth, making the greatest life investment you could ever make for yourself, your loved ones and our world, would you pass it by out of fear?

What would you be throwing away with, “reasonable sounding” excuses such as not enough time, money, or self-confidence? What might your authentic self look like, feel like and have as its special and unique gift? Can you really afford to turn away from your own truth and beauty?

The truth I’ve come to see over and over again without exception, is this:

Our fears, blocks and times of deepest despair are seeds sprinkled on the ground of life waiting for each of us to say, “There must be something more!! I am going to invest this life in finding out what it means to awaken to life’s richest meaning!”

This is the daily truth we forget: We only ever actually are alive within each here and now. Now is where your life is played-nowhere else! It is good to reflect and to recognize that how we spend each moment reflects the values we are placing on life. Each moment, another coin of our lifeline is being spent. In what are you investing the coins of your life?

Will you invest in finding your true self? Will you invest in following your life’s very own unique genius? If not now, when?


Every night for the next week, write down all the places you invested your time and resources. (Remember time spent on such things as TV, alcohol, unfulfilling social engagements, worrying about, “what if’s”; beauty, shopping etc.).  Don’t excuse, or rationalize your choices-just remain curious and look. Simply get acquainted with where you are implicitly placing your life’s values by way of your time spent. Don’t judge things as good/bad, right/wrong. Simply LOOK and SEE.

Challenge – Finding the Benefits

Jan Engels-Smith | all things healing

“Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional.”   ~Roger Crawford

On the road to enlightenment, the way is not always smooth and it certainly is not effortless. How we view our challenges can determine whether or not we receive the full benefits that they offer. The universe is non-judgmental and does not define for us the events of our lives as good or bad; that decision is ours alone, and if we refuse the responsibility of our choice and assign the conditions to bad luck or the inevitability of failure, we have lost an opportunity for deeper understanding and a chance to enhance our appreciation for life.  Hiking a trail in the wilderness, we overcome obstacles and we receive the dual benefit of having met the challenge and succeeded and of having the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of a remote area. If our only focus was on the pain encountered in our hike and the irritation at the obstacles along the way, it is likely that the beauty of our destination would go unappreciated and we would be blind to the wonders that surround us. On the other hand, if we reveled in the accomplishments we enjoyed in proving our mettle on the trail and found the trek to be part of the great pleasure of the outing, we can be assured that the scene at our final destination would be more beautiful than we had ever imagined and our joy would be unbounded. Such is the journey to enlightenment. Each challenge reveals to us who we really are and illuminates our existence so that we might know ourselves more fully and be more capable of growth and evolution.

Intention determines result. We know that we choose our intentions. The word itself implies choice. We need to recognize the spirit’s neutrality in the events that we encounter each day. The universe is not opting for good or bad incidents to toss at our feet; it simply provides the life force that offers us the opportunity of choice of response.  We select the attitude, the emotional state, and the degree of self-assurance that we desire. How we choose to address the conditions that we face will determine the impact of the challenges. Realize that the goal may not be to lessen the impact but to make sure that we understand that the negative qualities that we first perceive can be altered into a positive force for change, because the difficult encounters might be the most beneficial to our spiritual development. I am not suggesting that a serious illness or an economic distress is a good thing, but that if the event has occurred, we may choose to blame it on our lack of worthiness, bad luck, or helplessness, or we may choose to focus on positive possibilities and find hope in a future that we can influence by our attitude and intentions. The laws of attraction are not grounded in past failure but in current attitude. Stressing the negatives in our experiences defines our intention and we draw in the misery and sadness we wish to release. Emphasizing the possibilities for healing and appreciation creates a positive force that quickly compounds itself into hope, renewal, and revitalization. Joy is not the immediate product of a difficult situation, but the intentions we set can offer a pathway to ultimate joy.

We live and function daily in the middle world, and the middle world appears confusing and at times chaotic. The distraction of this hectic and unruly place, very easily diverts us from our personal mission for spiritual growth; our attention focuses on the immediate and our perception of ourselves as a minor entity in an unimaginably large universe. Our practices of meditative contemplation of ourselves as at one with the universe are intended to mitigate this sense of aloneness and smallness. Setting our intentions to believe in our power to draw strength from the cosmos allows us to function purposefully in the middle world and to act fearlessly in the face of challenges. The fragmentary appearance of negative forces in our hectic lives is an illusion that gains strength only if we choose to succumb to its negative energy. By drawing on our spiritual guides for support and directing our energies into positive forces for change, we transcend this misapprehension of helplessness and find an inner strength we may not have known we possessed. This is the design of ascension—opening the chakras to positive energy and gaining the power of the universe as our own, setting our intentions to become whole and one with the universe, and evolving to a higher dimension.

A good measure of one’s progress along the evolutionary road of ascension is to consider how you view the inevitable difficult events that you encounter in your daily life. Sadness, distress, and fear are common forms of reaction and they may even serve a positive purpose in the short term as we come to grips with loss and pain and find solace in our emotional interaction with others. Negative forces are those which you allow to dominate your existence and which prevent you from moving progressively toward finding your true self. I recently experienced much sadness at the loss of my mother and I found it painful to accept the fact that she was gone from this life. However, I found great comfort from the outpouring of support I received from family and friends. She had moved a few years ago from Florida to Oregon and was close at hand for several years. It was joyful to spend so much time with her on a frequent basis during her last years and to see her interacting with her grandchildren and friends. The positive force of that joy does not eliminate the sense of loss but the dominant energy is one of thankfulness for the time together and the pleasure of fond memories. This is the nature of positive intentions. The spirits offer solace as you choose to seek it and one need not be mired in negative thoughts if you choose otherwise.

In our lives, we do not expect to eliminate all problems or avoid all difficult situations or never suffer loss. The spirits imbue life with a myriad assortment of occurrences but they do not assign emotions to the events; they leave that task to us. Occurrences have value as we determine their importance to us and they elicit emotional responses that we choose in our reaction to them. Humankind has allowed their consciousness to develop a false sense of external cause and effect for what we have created in our own mind.  Not only do we often lose influence in how events affect us but we also assume an unnecessary role of victim and its resultant condition of helplessness. In my journeys, I have found that the spirits are puzzled by this behavior and they have told me again and again that we possess the ability to determine our fate and the power to alter the trajectory of our lives.

The universe launches us at birth as perfect beings on the path to fulfillment; but the intrusion of deceptive values drawn from cultures that have distorted our connection to the cosmos causes us to diverge from this path and begin to create different and erroneous definitions of ourselves as separate from and in conflict with our world. Our efforts to restore ourselves to the true meaning of our existence are the basis for our work in ascension.

Can You Foresee The Death Of A Loved One… and Choose The Exact Moment You Die? These Accounts from an Intensive Care Nurse Will Astonish You

Dailymail | Jan 29th 2014

Near-Death-Experience_IllustrationFour years ago, children’s author Shelley E. Parker suddenly had a strong premonition that her fiancé was about to die. This made no sense at all. If anyone was going to die, it was more likely to be Shelley herself, as she was seriously ill with cancer.

But that night in hospital, her premonition was reinforced by a bizarre dream in which she met God.

She recalled every moment of it when she woke: how God had told her that it was time for Steven to go, and turned down her plea to take her instead.

At noon the next day, Steven, who was a helicopter pilot, was killed in a crash.

‘I now wonder whether I could have stopped him dying if I’d told him,’ says Shelley, 41, who lives in Farnworth, Lancashire. ‘But I don’t think I could have.’

There was no doubt in Shelley’s mind that she’d somehow tuned in to the future. Ten years before, she’d had another premonition — this time about a little girl.  The healthy three-year-old was the child of friends and Shelley had seen her only a few times. One night, she had a ‘very vivid’ dream about her.

‘I was walking along a path and in front of me was this little girl with her auntie,’ Shelley recalled. ‘I’m not sure how accurate the image of the auntie was, as I’d never met her or seen photographs of her — I just knew that she’d died about 20 years previously.

‘She smiled and telepathically told me all was well’

‘The aunt said she was there to take the little girl to heaven. The child was dressed in pink and had a pink bucket and spade and glitter make-up on the side of her face. She was very happy and dancing around.

‘I woke up the next day and felt really unsettled. I thought about phoning the little girl’s father but then thought better of it, trying to rationalise that it was just a dream. That feeling of anxiety lasted all day.’

That evening, Shelley went to dinner with relatives. At one point, she glanced at her watch. It was 10.10pm.

‘Suddenly, all of the unsettled feeling and anxiety just fell away and I thought: at last I’m starting to relax.’

The next day, she learned that the little girl had died the night before — soon after 10pm. The cause of her death was a mystery.

Should we dismiss Shelley’s premonitions — and many others I’ve been told — as macabre coincidences? Or could they be a genuine phenomenon, experienced far more than people imagine?

Consider the case of Janice Wright, a British woman who was visiting friends in Virginia, USA. In the middle of the night, she told me, she’d suddenly snapped wide awake.

In her bedroom was her childhood nanny, whom she hadn’t seen in years, though they still corresponded.

‘In real life, she was well over 80,’ said Janice. ‘But in the vision, she was ageless and surrounded by an immensely bright light. She smiled at me, put her hand out and telepathically told me all was well.

‘I was shocked and stayed awake. The next morning, I told my hosts I thought my old nanny had died.

‘Later that day, a cousin called from England to tell me that’s exactly what had happened.’

How can we explain such accurate premonitions? Sadly, science has not even begun to find answers.

Similarly, no scientific theory has yet come close to explaining why a few people have near-death experiences — which can include visions of tunnels, bright lights and meetings with dead relatives.

Indeed, that was one of the problems facing me when I embarked on a PhD on the subject. Throughout my research, I was also working as a nurse in the intensive care ward of a British hospital. I was therefore able to learn at firsthand about some of the seemingly inexplicable events that can occur just before death.

Throughout Dr Sartori's research, she was also working as a nurse in the intensive care ward of a British hospital (file photo) and was able to learn at firsthand about some of the seemingly inexplicable events that can occur just before death

Throughout Dr Sartori’s research, she was also working as a nurse in the intensive care ward of a British hospital (file photo) and was able to learn at firsthand about some of the seemingly inexplicable events that can occur just before death

To my mind, however, it’s too easy to label these as paranormal or supernatural.

Instead, I’m increasingly open to the possibility that our brains are separate from our consciousness. In other words, the brain may be channelling what some people call the soul, rather than responsible for creating it.

As a theory, it deserves scientific investigation. If proved, it would explain, for instance, why enhanced consciousness can be experienced separately from the body.

And it would also help account for the extraordinary phenomenon known as ‘shared death experience’.

This is admittedly rare, but two separate cases have been reported to me by relatives who were present at a deathbed.

‘I saw this tall man reach out to embrace mum’

The first took place in 2004 in the north of England. A dying woman in her 70s was unconscious in a hospital, with her family around her bed. Her husband, Peter, and son, Harry, were holding her hands, and her daughter, Gail, had placed a hand on her forehead.

Subsequently, I interviewed both Peter and Gail separately about what they’d seen. According to Peter, he suddenly noticed a bright light a little distance away. As he watched, a tall man stepped forward from the light with his hands outstretched. Then his unconscious wife seemed to rise from her bed and walk towards the man.

‘He was waiting there as if to give her a welcoming hug; there was a sense  of peace and love,’ Peter recalled.

His daughter, Gail, appears to have had a fuller experience of the same vision. ‘All of a sudden, I could see Mum walking into the distance on a path,’ she said. ‘Around her head was like a sun, and on her right-hand side, I could see the silhouette of some people.

‘[Then] I saw this tall person — I don’t know who he was. When she reached him, he took her into his arms as if in a warm embrace that was full of love.

‘Mum’s breaths got shallower. And then there were no further breaths and the scene disappeared.’

One man Dr Sartori spoke to said he had seen a tall man step forward from a bright light, as his dying wife seemed to rise from her bed and walk towards him

One man Dr Sartori spoke to said he had seen a tall man step forward from a bright light, as his dying wife seemed to rise from her bed and walk towards him

Naturally, the family was devastated at their loss. But, unlike Harry, who’d seen nothing at all, father and daughter had what Peter described as ‘big smiles on our faces’.

‘There’d been such sadness leading up to my wife’s death — then this [vision] happened,’ he said. ‘The nurses and ward sister must have thought we were very insensitive because we felt this sense of elation and happiness.’

In the second case, a woman in her 40s called Laura was holding her mother’s hand as she started slipping into a coma. Then, suddenly, Laura said, her mother rose from her bed and began walking away. After just one pace, though, she turned around.

‘She looked so happy and well,’ said Laura. ‘Then she said: “Go back now — it’s not your turn.”’

When Laura next looked at her mother on the bed, she was in a deep coma. She died three days later, without regaining consciousness.

‘He was making gestures to some invisible person’

I’ve since been told of several such experiences. What makes them particularly fascinating is that they can’t simply be dismissed by cynics as the product of a malfunctioning brain.

Why? Because, unlike conventional near-death experiences, they happen to people who aren’t close to death themselves.

But what about Laura and Gail’s mothers — the people who actually died? Were they, too, experiencing the vision? Evidence from other cases seems to suggest they were.

My first encounter with deathbed visions in hospital was when I was a student nurse arriving for a  morning shift.

‘Billy’s in bed six — he’s been talking to his dead mother since three o’clock this morning,’ said the night-shift nurse. ‘He’ll be gone by the end of the day.’

After the handover, I kept my eye on Billy Jones, who was 78. He appeared to be asleep, but throughout the morning, he was making gestures to some invisible person and seemed to be speaking to his mother.

The last time I saw him, he was asleep with a big smile on his face. He died a few hours later.

This was my first encounter with death in a hospital — and it wasn’t long before I, too, could sometimes predict when patients were about to die. Like Billy, they’d start calling out and gesturing to some invisible presence.

Is This Proof Near-Death Experiences ARE Real?


Is this proof near-death experiences ARE real? Extraordinary new book by intensive care nurse reveals dramatic evidence she says should banish our fear of dying

By Penny Sartori | Dailymail

As a nurse, I’m always cheered when I see a patient who appears to be making a good recovery. That certainly seemed the case with 60-year-old Tom Kennard, who’d been suffering from sepsis after surgery for cancer.

After a couple weeks in the intensive care ward, he was well enough to be moved from his hospital bed to a chair. Moments later, however, he suddenly slumped into unconsciousness.

There was no doubt at all that he was out cold. He responded neither to my urgent questions nor to the painful pressure of my Biro on his fingernails.

Worse still, his skin became clammy, his oxygen levels dropped and his blood pressure plummeted — clear signs that his condition had become critical.

As I quickly gave him extra oxygen, I called out to the other nurses in the intensive care unit. Four of them immediately flocked to Tom’s bedside, and we gently helped return him to his bed as we called for a doctor urgently.

He was still unresponsive when the doctor arrived, followed a few minutes later by a consultant.

Indeed, Tom didn’t regain full consciousness for another three hours.

Yet, during those three lost hours, he had apparently gone on a life-changing journey. His first sensation, he told me afterwards, was of ‘floating upwards to the top of the room. I looked down and I could see my body on the bed. It was lovely, so peaceful — and no pain at all.’

In the next moment, the hospital ward had disappeared and he’d entered a pink room, in which his father was standing next to a man with ‘long black scruffy hair and nice eyes.’ For a time, Tom talked telepathically with his father.

At some point, he became aware that something was touching him. Once again, he was back on the hospital ward ceiling — looking down at me and the doctor.

I was putting a lollipop-shaped instrument into his mouth to clean it, he recalled later.

He could also see a woman beyond the cubicle curtains, who kept twitching them to check on his condition.

Indeed, I can personally verify that everything Tom ‘saw’ while unconscious was 100 per cent accurate — down to the swab I used to moisten his mouth and the names of the consultant and of the physiotherapist lurking behind the curtains.

While all this was going on, Tom heard the man with the scruffy hair say: ‘He’s got to go back.’ This came as a blow: he remembers desperately wanting to stay.

Shortly after that, he told me, ‘I was floating backwards and went back into my body on the bed.’

His pain was excruciating, but he could still vividly recall how peaceful he had felt in that pink room. ‘Pen,’ he told me, ‘if that’s death, it’s wonderful.’

This near-death experience had two significant effects on his life. First, Tom says, it completely removed any fear of dying.

Even more extraordinary is what happened to his right hand, which had been frozen since birth into a claw-like position.

David Icke: The Vibrational Code That Will Bring Down the Control Matrix

DAVID ICKE: I’ve already got another book coming in my mind, which is going take it on even further because a lot of pennies have dropped in even the last two weeks – big pennies about how this matrix actually is constructed and what it is.  And, what has been happening to me, Jack, is that over the last  six months I’m going into states in sleep of dreams that are so, so vivid – it’s like this world. If people talk about and I talked about the fact that, you know, this is in effect a form dream and when we are asleep we dream other dreams, which don’t have the limitations of course that this dream has – because if we fall off a cliff in a dream we wake up, you know, in a start, “Oh, my goodness me!  What just happened?”  But, you’re still alive.

If you fall off a cliff in this dream,and you’re not still alive in this reality because you programmed to believe when that happens you must not be with us anymore. And this is why some people can walk through fire without getting burned. Most people would get burned. They go into another state of consciousness, which is what what basically a dream is.

And these dreams have become more and more and more vivid. And, as they have done so, more and more information, insigt, and awareness is starting to form. I’m just at the cusp of going… I mean this new book goes deeper into the rabbit hole for sure –  not least in relation to Saturn and other things. But, I’m just on the cusp of going really really deep.

You know you reach a point when you know that the waters are about to break in a big way?  I’m at that point now and it’s an exciting time for me, because what I’ve been pursuing for the last 22 years is not only what’s going on – it’s how we delete what’s going on.

And for me, what’s happening is this matrix, which I explain in the book, and will do even more in the next one because of what’s happened since we went to the printers, it has created a feedback loop, if you like, with human awareness (the human mind) and the feedback loop is this (and it’s interesting because you kind of went into it in some way earlier mentioning this in terms of them telling us what’s gonna happen and it happens).  The feedback loop is the matrix in its forms – it feeds us a sense of reality. We believe that sense a reality, and then we feed back into the matrix that sense of reality which empowers it to feed it back to us in a more powerful way.

So it becomes a receiver/transmitter, receiver/transmitter kind of relationship where the more we believe what we are led to believe, the more we empower the matrix to manifest what we have been manipulated to believe. And that feedback loop has to be broken.

And when people start to awaken and they start to even at the level of Occupy protests and Tea Party’s in a smaller way, and the more we move on in a much more fundamental way to see the world in reality in a different way, we break that feedback.  We are no longer feeding back into the matrix information construct what its feeding to us. And therefore we’re weakening that rather than empowering it.

That is why it is so important for everybody (as many people as possible) to wake up and disconnect themselves from this “I believe what I’m told. I’m believe what I’m told.” And question it and see it another light because you break the feedback.  And so that’s great and this is why it’s so important for people to wake up and wake up and wake up, because it’s weakening, it’s weakening the power we’re giving to the matrix to further influence us.

But for me, there is an energetic code.  I’ve seen this in my mind for twenty years, and it’s becoming more and more and more powerful and tangible in the last few weeks.

There is a code. It is like the equivalent of a combination lock to open a safe, but it’s an energetic code.  And that code is going to break this information construct. And when it does, people are going to be like sleeping beauty. They’re gonna wake up and go: “What just happened?”

Because the world and themselves is going to suddenly be perceived in very different terms. For some people – many, many increasing numbers of people – this is already happening to them even within this box….

What you are doing is that the more you awaken and therefore in this interaction with this energetic construct I call matrix, the more you awaken you are putting new information, new perceptions into this construct.  This is weakening the power of the construct itself, which has been designed to feed us the sense of reality: little me; I’ve got no power; and all this stuff…

And thus, when you put this information into this construct it is there for other people to pick it up and be influenced by it.  And so everyone who awakens and everyone that awakens and everyone that awakens is adding these new ways of looking at self and life into this construct – this energy field.

And thus more and more people are getting access to more and more powerful levels of alternative ways of seeing things. And you can spontaneously suddenly see life in a different way walking down the supermarket isle without actually having read a book or heard anybody speak about it.   Suddenly, you get it.

And this is why it’s so important that people wake up because its weakening and weakening and weakening this matrix construct, which is actually feeding us a reality. So, that is fantastic, and the more that happens the better it will be.

But, in the end, I know that there is a vibrational code that is going to bring this down.  And I’m starting to understand what this matrix is and I’m starting to understand, therefore, what is necessary to break its control of human perception.

It’s exciting times.  And the next four years are going to be really really at the center – the heart – of bringing this whole thing to an end…

How to be Disciplined Without Being Psychotic – Gabrielle Bernstein


A short video from Gabrielle Bernstein on how to find balance between being disciplined and going with the flow. “When we commit to creating positive change we can sometimes get a little psycho about it. I believe in discipline as long as it doesn’t become another reason to stress out. In this video I talk about how we can find the balance between being disciplined without being psychotic,” she says.

How to Turn Your Big Dream into a Joyful Reality

Anna Long-Stokes | Purpose Fairy

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” ~ Patanjali

When dreams are this GOOD we often keep them close to our heart because they are soooo blissful that sharing them might in some way taint them. You know what I mean?

Last December I was sitting in my newly purchased home in Portland Oregon doing my vision-board exercise (I say “annual” as though I do this each year…I think this was only my 2nd year!). I was looking out the window at the dreary day and although I was grateful for my new house…I KNEW that I couldn’t spend another winter in the dreary Northwest.

The only thing that brought a twinkly to my eye on a day so dreary was my BIG dream of moving to Mexico for the Winter. Unlike most people who save tropical paradise for their 60’s, I wanted it NOW (yesterday to be exact). This dream seemed pretty un-doable. I had just bought a house and even though I had started my consulting practice I wasn’t exactly profiting enough to quit my part-time/stable job.

I finished my vision board that day and spent the next month getting more clear on a plan to make my dream happen. I’m happy to say that not only will I be spending all Winter in Mexico this year, I also got married this summer and just got back from 2 months traveling all over Asia with my new husband! It’s been a magical year and I want to share 5 tips with you that I found essential in getting from where I was…to where I am.

How to turn your big dreams into reality and live the happy and meaningful life you truly deserve:

1. Dream Big & Dream Vivid

It may sound cliche, but if you can’t dream it, you won’t get it. So before you start putting together some half-assed plan to “make your life better”, allow yourself some “dreamin’ time” to get really clear on what you ACTUALLY want. I did a vision board (as many people do), but most of my dreaming happened in a special journal that I would bring around with me and work on when I could. About once a month I would go up to a great indoor hot springs in Oregon where I could be alone with my thoughts, swim, nap, draw and journal. That’s what worked for me…but you need to figure out what works for you!

When you dream big envision very vividly what you want, where you are, who you are with and how you want to feel. Don’t just write “I want to live in Mexico”. Cut out pictures on Mexico, envision eating food and smelling the ocean with your partner. Have some fun with this!

2. Set a Timeframe

Depending on your dream this could be 1 week or 10 years! I recommend selecting a timeframe that is realistic (so that you don’t set yourself up for disappointment), but also not too far out (so that you don’t lose sight).

I set my goal as 1 year away. I knew I wanted to spend next Winter in Mexico and I knew that I needed to build up my business enough to quit my job and work remotely.

3. Make a Plan

I don’t consider myself an abundance coach, but I have had great success with creating abundance in my life. I think it is because I dream big and then I actually make a plan to make it happen. Depending on your dream this could look like many things.

I created a step by step process where I figured out what I wanted and went backwards. So because I wanted to live in Mexico in one year (while working remotely), I had to make growing my business a main objective with well-defined income markers to help me then set goals of how many clients I needed to work with.

You see how that worked? I took a BIG dream and took that main barrier standing in my way (income for while I lived in Mexico) and broke it down into monthly goals so that I could quit my job and be ready to work in Mexico within a year. I also had to get a renter in my house to pay my mortgage while I was away, so I applied the same process to figuring out what steps I needed to take to make that happen (pack house, take pictures, post on rental site and interview renters, etc).

If you think having a vision board is enough, you will forever be disappointed…make your plan and make it measurable! If you’re not good at this, hire someone to help you! I help people all the time create strategy plans with business and your life is no different!

4. Share your dreams, drop your expectations

Here’s the deal; people don’t always have your back or want you to succeed. The fact that you have a dream can be enough to make people extremely uncomfortable. You could handle this by not telling anyone your dream or you could learn to manage how you take in negative feedback from others.

I used to share my dreams with people and be really disappointed if they didn’t react exactly how I wanted them to react (though I couldn’t quite articulate how I wanted them to react). This created an emotional roller coaster where I would feel excited when I was alone and alone when I shared my dreams to a room full of naysayers. Sometimes negative feedback is enough to completely mess with the dreamers head and throw them off course. This is BAD!

Instead I want YOU to change your mindset and your expectations…because at the end of the day, that is all you have control over.  So when you share your dreams and you are met with crickets, odd glances, or rude remarks realize one thing…its about THEM, not YOU. Your dreams are so big that they scare them (and that’s pretty cool!).

I can’t even begin to tell you all the stories where I had to apply this principle. If I had let all the naysayers have their way, I would be stuck in dreamy Portland drowning my Mexico dreams in watered down margaritas (no bueno!)

Bidirectional UFO Communications in the Skies Over Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

A pattern of UFO communications is evident in the skies over Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Bidirectional signalling bridges earth and air to evoke signs of psychic contact taking place over a multi-year period. Two different electronic instruments register the same repeatable phenomena indicating open lines of communications from advanced intelligences cooperating in the development of human consciousness.  The most recent bidirectional communication occurred on January 23, 2014.

Back to Reality and Post-Climb Mania — Third and Fourth Excerpts From The Great Pyramid’s Blessed Curse

By Omar Cherif
Omar Cherif and Ahmed Abbas (in grey T-shirts) with Larry Dean Hunter (middle) and 2 American researchers the night we climbed the Pyramid of MenkaureBack again…we decided to leave right after the morning prayers that could be heard through the city’s 1000 minarets. Going down for another 45 minutes with our backs to the pyramid was a little harder than the way up. To remain focus, I had to remind myself that this was not a Nintendo game and that I only had one life to spare. The sun started to rise as the darkness faded, uncovering our camouflage. Halfway through, a lonesome policeman at the bottom spotted us  and shouted something. Of course there were no other options but to keep descending while brainstorming on what to say.

Once down, he wanted to take us to the police station. Our averagely-clever alibi was to pretend that my friend was a tour guide and that his girlfriend and I were French tourists. To play the role well, we started speaking French while the “tour guide” was trying to convince him of our victimless crime. Five minutes and the policeman was still arguing, even refusing a small bribe, so I had to interfere and spoke out in Arabic: “Listen man, I’m Egyptian like you and if you want to get people down, there are 6 Japanese men up there, go get them.” The poor guy froze for a second and left mumbling, grumpy and bribe-less.

Interestingly, years later with the widespread of the internet, I found that young Japanese men wrote a guide on how to climb the Great Pyramid based on personal accounts and advices from successful nocturnal climbers written both in Japanese and English. Their motto to overcome the climb is “Never Give Up”. I wonder if our guests have anything to do with it.

It was 6 a.m. already and I went home to find my caring mother waiting by the door, drinking her too-early Nescafe and looking like she’s been worried sick. Of course this was still the peaceful pre-mobile phone era, and yes, I’m not that young. I was all white and dusty from the climbing and all I could say before heading to the shower was that we went horseback-riding at the pyramids. One year later, I proudly confessed to both of my parents which was of course met with: ‘My son has lost his mind’ and ‘you could have easily killed yourself.’ They are both true somehow, but I believe that a life without adrenaline-fueled adventures or trying new things is not really a life worth living. My motto is “Never give up, and you will reach your destination.”

I only wish I had a camera to document and commemorate this uncommon happening, and our craziness too of course. A picture from the top would have been a stunning, surreal Kodak moment, the photographer in me keeps reminiscing, even to the extent of considering the possibility of re-doing it someday armed with a camera. Writing this piece is the only proof I’m leaving for our descendants, along with my friends’ testimonies, but who’s physically immortal?

I felt exceptionally fortunate to share this rare encounter with my friend, knowing that not too many people had the chance to do it. Actually we were the only ones in our circle of friends who reached that summit. It affected me in a truly profound way and left me feeling alive, exhilarated, rejuvenated and with an ever-increasing curiosity to know more about this intriguing golden civilization.


Very soon after and with my growing interest in the endless mysterious tales surrounding the majestic Ancient Egyptians, my friend introduced me to a cool American researcher named Larry Dean Hunter. He was then hired by Richard Hoagland’s Enterprise mission – a space research institute that covers NASA, Cydonia, the Face on Mars, space anomalies, and unusual activities at the pyramids. While feeding his own passion, Larry stimulated our sense of wonder and curiosity and was the first to open our eyes on many things the average young Egyptian didn’t know much about, especially when the internet was still taking its first steps. He always told us that the youth needed to know more about the Pharaohs since it is the direct ancestral link to our own historical heritage. He also told us that not everything is known to the public and that there are some secrets still kept unrevealed.

For 3 years my friend and I met Larry in the surrounding areas of the pyramids when he would come for research visits every few months and stay with local friends. I remember enjoying many eye-opening, interesting conversations as we would go horseback-riding between the Giza plateau and Sakkara in the full moon. We even climbed the third pyramid of Menkaure (or Mykerinus) together another night sometime late in 1997, but that was a much easier task. The featured photo is from that night. It is known that the top of the second Pyramid of Khafre (or Chefren) cannot be reached as it’s the steepest of the 3 pyramids.

Slowly but surely, we realized that what we were taught at schools about the pyramids being burial complexes for the dead was too conventional and lacked any sort of reflective imagination. And since no mummies were ever found inside, some contemporary theorists refuted this idea, not believing that this was their sole function.

As the language and scripts changed multiple times over the different ages, it is very plausible that what is known today has been misinterpreted a long time ago. It is also known of Pharaohs who deliberately destroyed everything the previous dynasty has built or achieved, most probably conceal any found knowledge to use it for their own advantages such as controlling the people for example. Again, we’re talking about thousands of years here and it’s practically impossible to know everything, but we can sure keep trying.

During this time, we got to personally know a 50-year old man who lived and worked in the area who told us that 15 years earlier, a prominent official who was then the head of antiquities in Egypt and an American scientist friend took him to a nearby site in the area of Abusir where there was an excavation project led by a foreign research expedition, and ordered him to dig in a specific spot. After some brief effort, 3 sarcophagi were found and removed, yet only one made it to the public. It looks like the official and his friend kept two of the sarcophagi while looking like international heroes who made an unraveling discovery. The man was given 500 L.E (around $85 in today’s rates) to keep his mouth shut.

As my old friend reminded me lately, such reoccurring incidents distort our true understanding of history. According to the man, the 3 found sarcophagi belonged to a king, a queen and a child, and by revealing only part of the truth, the discovery’s recorded data will be missing and consequently misinterpreted, while the factual evidence remains lost forever.
Unfortunately, stories like these have been happening for a long time and there is an enormous global black market for Ancient Egyptians’ tombs, relics and artifacts – found or stolen. Our missing capstone has very similar effect as it only leaves us with a mirage of interpretations to the incomplete puzzle.

Get Ready – Year of the Horse and 1/30 Super Moon


Next week promises to be a powerful time for energy shifts and openings – especially with the super moon January 30 ahead of Chinese New Year and the Year of the Horse officially starting the next day. These energies are auspicious and hold great potential for you on a personal level – helping you to connect with your destiny path and your true power to create as a multidimensional being of light.

In this article are suggestions for making the most of these beneficial energies, while also continuing your progress of forward movement this year. If you are like most people, you have likely had a number of highs and lows since 2014 began. There indeed has been, and continues to be, a generally lighter feel and tone compared with 2013.

That said, in the bigger picture you also sit within ongoing radical and challenging revolutionary energies that characterize these unique years of paradigm shift. Changes often are not easy, even the ones you want to make.

2014 a Peak Year

One reason is that 2014 is a peak year of your world being literally remade under your feet.

Other years have built to this one, and the shifting will continue for some time after 2014. Still, for those like you who are awakening and sensitive to energies, this year may feel more intense. You won’t always be able to identify the intensity, either, but you will likely sense it in the background.

Intensity isn’t necessarily bad, of course. You could feel intense joy as a project you have long dreamed of begins to take root. You could be meeting new people, too, including those who you don’t immediately connect with anything significant – but they are to be important for your future. These things can be exciting when they appear, your intuitive knowing showing you that you are starting to bring in needed partners and resources for your fuller life expression.

In tandem with that, any unfinished business from your past that’s in the way of your immediate next steps will be coming to light. When that happens, don’t judge it or get angry or worry.

Old Issues in the DNA

Do pay attention, though, and utilize your tools and resources to clear those issues at a DNA level. The things that surface may seem old, but trust that the elements arising are additional pieces of what you addressed before.

Consider this: the more intense feelings you have when issues arise, the more important they are for you to address. Keeping up to date with the process of energy clearing will accelerate your forward momentum.

For perspective, most life issues a person has now did not originate earlier in life, but in other lifetimes. Advanced practitioners understand this and keep things in perspective. For divine changemakers, this indeed is the lifetime when you have the most opportunity to clear your past – back to the root causes – accelerating your enlightenment.

Year of the Horse Energies

Understanding the energetic tone of a cycle like Chinese New Year can help you to advance on your path by leaps and bounds. That’s because you have foresight about the kinds of  energy you may encounter.

Horse years like we have in 2014, for example, are associated with fire and action. In these years, there tends to be lots of activity and much on your plate. Not everything needs to be done at once, of course, but it may seem that way!

On a positive note, you simply may feel more buoyant and able to tackle things that you have been putting on the back burner. The key to success is maintaining your balance, sense of timing, and awareness of what is in front of you right when it is in front of you. Many opportunities can come and go in such a year as this – you must be awake to them in order to act with divine timing.

Being grounded and centered in your heart will be vital to your success, too. The more that you can achieve this, the more you will be able to connect with your inner voice and spirit. Having that connection is essential for what you want to do, be, and have this year.

Make spirit your fueling system for action in this Year of the Horse. Spirit can help guide you through the windy terrain, the ups and downs, and the obstacle courses. A grounded spirit connection, too, can help you with prosperity. That’s because you are more in a state of flow and receiving, and more grounded about your relationship with money.

Working with the Super Moon

Utilize the January 30 super moon for potent visioning and creating an action plan for personal and spiritual progress in 2014. The new moon next week is called a super moon because of its powerful potentials for new beginnings. It’s actually the second new moon so far this year – making it even more influential. If you are doing an intentions process at the new moon, factor in the horse year energies being ignited the next day. See my earlier December 29 article for a new moon process you can update for next week’s super moon.

Big Picture for 2014

Getting back to the big picture for this year – don’t forget the role of the collective, too. Learn to become friends with the idea of unseen outside influences being a part of your creating process.

That is the truth anyway – you do not create your life or self-evolve on an isolated island somewhere. You live on the “island” of Earth, and indeed beyond that the cosmos. Everything is connected throughout time and space.

As you fully grasp what this means, it’s easier to let go and being in the flow that spirit can help facilitate. Intend now that you will benefit from these energies this year. Decide to participate fully with life and with the divine dance of creation. It is this that will allow you to thrive and to be in love and joy.
