Kids Need Fresh Air and Green Spaces

it’s not just Indigo Kids or Star Kids who need plenty of time out in the natural world, but every child.  Many parents today are depriving their children of the one thing that can help make them whole;  Green Spaces,  Fresh Air.  Nature.

What I hear often from Indigo kids and teens is how difficult it is just to get time to play, and time outside in the natural world.  Parents, listen up:  your children CRAVE this!  And they aren’t getting it — at least, nowhere near enough of it.  They need a minimum of one hour a day, EVERY day.

Sure, you as parents have tight schedules and demands.  But that doesn’t mean your kids have to suffer deprivation as a result. I know that it’s a challenge — and I know that parents of Indigo and Star Seed kids are up to it, because I know plenty of parents who make sure their children get enough:

  • Unstructured play time.  This is important to help your kids nurture their immense creative aspects.  (P.S.  Unstructured doesn’t mean “unsupervised”. . . )
  • At least one hour every day out in the natural world.  You know. Trees. Water.  Fresh air.  Animals. Flowers and plants.  Your children need contact with and understanding of Nature.  Make sure they get their daily “vitamin” of it.  Gardens are good — for all family members — even if it’s just a potted plant on the balcony or patio 🙂
  • Healthy food.   Even snacks can be healthy, with a little advance planning.
  • Rest.  (By the way, TV and computer games are NOT restful and do NOT qualify as rest.)

If you’d like a little inspiration for getting kids out into some fresh air and green spaces, here’s a book (The Green Hour by Todd Christopher) and initiative that supports it:

The Green Hour

Your children deserve to have a life that connects them directly with Nature.  Other parents are finding ways to do this — and you can too.  Your children depend on you to help provide the environment where they will thrive.  Make sure they get it.

If you are an Indigo kid, teen, or Star Seed adult, the missing element in your life just might be Nature.  Plan to get back in touch with it, because it will heal and nurture you in ways nothing else can.

Oh, and if you want to learn how to communicate effectively with Nature, and teach your children, you might like to get this free report from How To Partner With Nature Intelligence.  (I think you will like it.)

Special Way to Help Homeless Kids

Every so often, something comes along that just touches a chord so deep, you KNOW you have to do something about it.  This is one of those times.

It’s obvious that times are getting tough for people all over.  You can hear it in the news, see it in people’s faces, and watch it in your own town.  If you’re as sensitive as I am, you can feel it in your heart.

But until I read the blog post where I’m going to send you in just a moment, I really didn’t know how bad it’s gotten for some of our most vulnerable people — teens who run away and become homeless. The numbers are stunning.  The suffering is unimaginable.

But it’s really not hopeless.  All it takes is a great idea — and a little help from your friends.

And by the way, sometimes your “friends” are people you will never even meet in your lifetime. . .

Here’s what I want you to do.  Visit the link I’m going to give you right below, read the blog post, click on the link to watch a short video (made by a really cute kid in Kansas City, whose heart is definitely in the right place) — and take action.

You could make a donation. (It’s tax deductible, if that ,matters to you.)  You could forward it to a friend or colleague (or two or three.)  You could do what I’m doing, by passing the word.

Start an initiative in your town.  Donate time to think through with the leaders in your community what you can do.  But please do something, besides just read the information.  Together we really can make a difference. We already are.

I don’t get anything out of this besides a good feeling, to know that what I’m doing right here at my keyboard is going to save some lives — and maybe turn a few around in the bargain.

Oh yeah.  Here’s the link:  Initiative To Help Homeless Kids .

Go there.  Take action.

International Day of Peace

I’m sharing with you today. . .
A Message from Chunyi Lin
on International Day of Peace

Healing World Image

Hello my dear friend,

There is a beautiful song, most often heard at Christmas time, which starts, “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.” On this International Day of Peace, wouldn’t it be wonderful if we all carried those words within us and lived those words from our hearts?

For there to be peace on earth, each of us must truly say, “Let it begin with me.” That is where it all begins.

“Lao Tzu said, “If there is to be peace in the world…in the nations…in the cities…between neighbors…in the home…there must be peace in the heart.” Peace begins in the heart because the heart is the seat of love and, as Gandhi said, “Love is the strongest force the world possesses….”

If we call upon this unconditional love–if we simply focus on the love in each of our hearts and let this limitless, perfect, healing love flow into us and through us–then we can find that perfect peace. We can live in that perfect peace, and we can bring that peace to our homes, our countries, our world.

Please take at least a moment today to focus on your heart, feel the flow of unconditional love coming into you, and then focus on sending that love to everyone you encounter this day. Open your heart and open your mind and see that perfect love flowing through every person throughout our world.

On this special day, please join me in living the message of that beautiful Christmas carol:

“Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.”

In love and peace,

Peace is what every heart longs to feel, deep down.   Today, join with me and millions of others, to make it so 🙂

9/9/09: Sacred Number of Completion and Manifestation

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009 is a special day.  (Well, if you ask me. . . all days are special!)  But this one is especially so.


In numerology, the number nine has to do with completion — and manifestation.  Now, for those of you who also follow astrology, you might know that the planet Mercury went retrograde on Monday; that is a time when it’s good to complete things that have already been started, work on fixing things that didn’t work out right the first time — relationships, projects, work, and so on — and to prepare for a new cycle ahead.  I mention this because it has a bearing on the energy fields we are entering right now.

Mercury retrograde’s “shadow side” is that it can cause communication delays or misunderstandings (make sure that important letter has a stamp on it — that when you reply to an email you don’t hit “reply all” instead — and that what you say is what they heard); transportation challenges or delays (make sure the car has enough gas in it and it’s tuned up; double check your departure time; and in general don’t freak out if plans change unexpectedly — it will all work out eventually); and machinery has a tendency to go completely haywire (back up your hard drive and your data!)

During this period, you can make some real headway on projects that have been planned, and you can finish things that have been on your desk for quite a while.  it’s a good time.  And. . . this is a special time for working to envision and create a world that fits your ideal of how things are SUPPOSED to work.  We get the stars aligned just right to help it happen right now — which is a major blessing.  Please take advantage of it.  (And keep working on this no matter WHAT the stars are doing!)

If you’d like another glimpse into how the Mayans thought about this sacred number and these times, read an interesting article about “999 and the Mayan Calendar” here.

Finally, I got word today that the Ringing Cedars books have shipped and will be here later this week.  Be sure to check them out and order your copies!  I know they are going to be flying out the door as soon as they get here and I want to make sure you have YOUR copy as soon as possible.

Labor Day Musings

This coming Monday is a Labor Day holiday in the US, and for many people it’s a time to kick back and relax with family and friends, do some fun things out of doors if possible, and generally shift gears.  If you’re a parent, your kids either have already started back to school, or they will soon.


Labor Day is also kind of like a hinge.  it separates summer activities from the start of a school year, and all the things that happen during the autumn months.  Most people say that there is a noticeable shift in the energy.  Today you will probably start to feel the energy shifting big time, because it’s a full moon in Pisces, very intuitive and robust.  Most Indigos are going to feel great!

But next week starts one of Mercury’s periodic retrogrades — when you can experience mechanical failures, mis-communications, delays in travel, and so on.  That’s annoying for many people, but I actually LIKE the retrograde times, because it’s a great time to complete things that have already been started.  And believe me, I have tons of THOSE sitting around here!  Mercury retrograde gives me the perfect energy I need to get those things done and out of the way.  I’m looking forward to it.

And finally, the weather patterns are starting to gear up for some real storm activity over all the oceans.  You can call it global warming or whatever you like, the point is:  we all have to deal with it.  Please review my earlier posts about weather and storm meditations, and get ready to go into action the minute you hear about storm systems building, or whenever you start feeling an overload inside your own body.  Those are signs that something is brewing — and we CAN make a difference through our conscious connections.  I hope you will join me in this.

More news soon about the amazing Ringing Cedars Series.  I just ordered the inventory, and my webmaster is busy getting our site ready for you to place orders.  I will post something here about each of the books and DVDs, so that you can see what’s up.  I know you will love them as much as I do and want to get several copies for friends or family members.

Have a great weekend!

Much Going On In The Universe These Days

Because there is so much energy shifting right now, and many of you are wondering “What the heck is going on here?” — I decided it’s time to share with you some more links, to articles and sites that offer some explanations and insight to this question.  I know that I have had more than one “Aha!” moment by reading them, and I think they might be of value to you as well.

So here they are (in no particular order):

Karen Bishop has some new books out, and quite a lot to say about how the shifts are affecting you — and some helpful suggestions for what to do about it.  I like reading her insights even when they don’t precisely match what I’m experiencing — because sooner or later someone will ask me about the same thing 🙂 Visit her site here.  Be sure to check the latest report, in case there’s a new one posted.

Patricia Cota-Robles talks about an event happening August 15-20th, 2009 in Tucson, Arizona:  a World Congress on Illumination.  Through the Law of Resonance, all humans of like heart and mind can participate in stabilizing the extraordinary amount of Light that is awakening throughout the Universe, whether the timing of the event is “now” or “past”.  It’s worth a look at her site to learn more:  Era of Peace. (Enjoy the nice music, too!)

And last but certainly not least, Tom Kenyon channels an entity known as the Hathors, who have some important things to say about the predicted Swine Flu pandemic, how to stay well, and how to stay centered through the current and coming changes.  I personally liked these a lot!  They are very hopeful and empowering. Here are the latest links I suggest you read:

Lies, Half-Truths and Manipulations

Ecstasy and The Heart on how to focus (this should help those of you who wonder if you have ADD. . . )

The Holon of Balance on thriving through the earth changes

The Holon of Ascension on how to adjust during the solar storms and flares, and how they will affect you

The common thread I find in all these messages is this:

  • Stay centered and connected to Source no matter WHAT happens!
  • Turn from both fear and anger in yourself and when you encounter it in others; refuse to participate
  • Keep breathing and seek the joy
  • Remember the 11:11 (as above, so below) — and follow the 11:11 Laws to your best ability)

These steps will serve you well always, not just under challenging circumstances.  Make it your business to master them — and then teach it to others if they ask 🙂

Let me know if you have any questions about these topics; I’d be happy to respond.

Weather Alert

While the forecasts for the Atlantic were way off base this year (and scientists have since downgraded their predictions to reflect an unusually calm summer) we;ve got trouble in the Pacific Ocean.  Giant storms have hit the coasts of Japan and China, and a possible tsumani warning has just been issued for the southeast coast of India.

Not getting accurate or timely global news in the US is a definite challenge, but as soon as I hear something I will let you know about it.  That’s what I’m doing right now.

All those who meditate or work with Nature are called to connect immediately with the air, waters, and storm systems all over the world, especially in the western Pacific and Indian Oceans.  We want to ask Nature to discharge its energy in a way that causes no harm to life forms or property; that is the general principle.  We have proven time and again that this is not only possible, but a desirable way to help things remain stable.

If you would like a link to some of our previous meditations about working with the weather and Nature, go here and here.

We can make a difference; I’m sorry we got a late start on this one, but if you connect as soon get this message, and pass it along to your friends, there is still time to prevent it from being even worse.

When I get a chance I will try to find storm maps and see if I can link to them from here.

As always, thank you so much for your light, and for the love you carry for all living things!

09-09-09: Raise the Vibrations

Heads up on an interesting thing coming up in September.  NASA scientists are planning to make an “energy map” of the earth, from space.  There is an initiative to work consciously to raise the energy fields of the planet, to see if they can measure it from that far away.

Want to play?

Here is a link to the Facebook group.  You can also sign up there for a live teleseminar and submit questions in advance for the scientists to answer.

Most of all?  This is about raising the GOOD ENERGY.  And that’s a great idea ANY day, if you ask me 🙂
More cool things coming up soon; stay tuned.  And in the meantime, let me know what you’d like me to focus on here.  Add your comments and questions below.

Keeping Up With The Energy Shifts ~ Or Not

These days things change so fast, it’s sometimes hard to keep up, let alone calibrate what’s going on and what it means — on a personal level as well as for our human consciousness.  That’s why I like to read other blogs and check in on what others are noticing; often their reflections mirror my own, and give me some validation.

One of the sites I like for this is Karen Bishop’s What’s Up On Planet Earth (which now has a new web site called Emerging Earth Angels.)  Her latest post talks about the kind of strange “lull” some of us have been feeling, where projects are stalled, things seem to be at a complete stand-still, and equipment doesn’t work right.

For instance, my flagship web site was down for more than 48 hours from Sunday to Tuesday because of a major server failure; one of my clients cancelled her call because she just had a “blue screen of death” on her computer and had to send for a new hard drive to replace it — thank goodness for backup!  (Hey — you ARE backing up your systems and your data, aren’t you?  Make sure you do!)  And so on.  These things keep happening, and rather than become frustrated by them, it’s easier just to check out the energy flows and to see what’s happening on a larger scale.  The perspective is helpful.

And frankly, so is the rest!  We’ve been moving at quite the speed lately, and working hard in multiple dimensions.  We truly have earned a rest.  But sometimes it feels like I’m all geared up with nowhere to go!  Ever have that feeling?
