So there was a special Tuesday night Ground Crew Command Radio show this week, with encouraging news that Lightworkers, Lightwarriors and Patriots should not miss…follow links below for the REPLAY. (It starts with ta 30-minute guided Chiron/Mars meditation that is still worth doing.) ~PB
Wow … What an exhausting, but extremely successful series of 5 – weekly 144K Mass Meditations we’ve endured & completed with great success.
Yes … my bones are aching too, and the ironic frustration of external & internal attacks increasing thanks to darkness throwing everything against the wall to see what sticks … never helps, and creates the opposite impression about what is really going on.
But don’t be fooled …
We are winning …
And winning THOROUGHLY.
It’s just the nature of war, in all its forms. It’s intense. It doesn’t mean don’t take a break … rest … heal & recuperate. By all means … do this as much as you can.
And to ‘tone down’ the intensity of war, accelerate Planetary Liberation & bring more ease & smoothness to these intense energies … we’ll be doing a 144K Mass Meditation for 30mins – at 8:30pm EDT … and the Ground Crew Command episode will start straight after that.
We’re doing this because Chiron/Mars Conjunct is a serious enough issue, because it’s all about healing wounds. Personal will vs. inner duality. Discovering that the 50% of us that is not truly “us” causes a split in identity – at the collective level.
Afterwards – on this week’s long-awaited episode of Ground Crew Command, I’ll be de-briefing you and the rest of the troops on the past 5 weeks of intense action we’ve partaken in … and providing the ‘where to from here’ low-down.
I’ll also be covering the:
“ … but Cobra said the Event will happen once all the toplet bombs are removed” cries raging online
exciting new developments here at 144K Labs on breaking free of untenable external attacks on Starseeds once-and-for-all … long before the Event, without endless time & effort doing external clearing in the morning & throughout the day
a full ‘reading-between-the-lines’ analysis of Cobra’s report that confirmed the success of the Age-Of Aquarius Mass Meditation
including – how the ‘freak-out-factor’ by the unconscious majority – over more & more truth – is re-creating instability within the grids, including ‘unhelpful’ thought-forms, and what Starseeds can do to resolve this faster
discover the only way forward for Starseeds to even be able to do our Soul Mission & maintain this higher timeline, without the exhaustion & never-ending attacks (which lowers participation rates – and therefore, delays the Event)
why the Draco fleet must now be cleared first … or else
our short 30min Chiron/Mars 144K Meditation just before the start of this week’s show
how the 144K have helped clear ‘grid-inversion-technologies’ based on what we’ve seen during many 144K Meditations – which very much is the basis of this matrix construct
… plus much more on this week’s huge show of Ground Crew Command!

Titus Frost warned us not to jump to conclusions and run with the Wayfair rumors, that may be a combination of actual intel and disinfo, designed to discredit Truthers who sense that something is off with this story.
I do listen daily to Patriot Intel Report by Phoenix. I don’t always agree with his perspectives, but the topics interest me. This was a good one, and he does have a Tip of the Day where I learn many helpful things. ~PB

Sunday, Mercury goes direct in
intuitive Cancer. What have you been thinking about? Planning to do? Fantasizing about doing? What problem has your mind been chewing on? The quicksilver messenger, direct but still in shadow, is giving us a last boost to review our thought-themes since June 1. This is the weekend to get our inner bearings and get ourselves on track. As Crystal says, we can use our favorite tools—journaling, therapy, etc.—to align ourselves in readiness for the powerful midweek Sun-Pluto opposition. At this time, we are gifted with the golden opportunity to “channel our inner purpose in tangible gifts of mastery.”
Public schools nationwide are adopting Black Lives Matter curriculum presenting themes such as “systemic racism,” “police brutality” and “white privilege” while turning children into “little Marxists,” according to the Federalist.
The New York City Department of Education is one of many school systems set to roll out the BLM-themed lesson plans this fall, write Sloan Rachmuth and Katie Jensen.
This summer, North Carolina’s largest school system, in Wake County, launched a website providing BLM lessons for teachers to use in classrooms and for parents to use at home. It urges teachers to “address the injustices that exist beyond education by the conversations we have with others, by speaking up when we see hate, by supporting efforts that oppose racism and oppression, and by directly engaging in advocacy work.”
The Federalist writers contend that while condemning racism is laudable, it’s not what’s really happening.
“By bringing BLM into the classroom, activist educators are allowing the most radically divisive movement in modern American history to warp children’s worldviews,” they write.
Wake County’s BLM teaching resource appears to be a legitimate civics education resource, but it “lays out a cult-like recruiting process for students to follow. Step one: Recognize your white privilege. Step two: Learn the dos and don’ts of being an ally. Step three: Recruit more members to learn steps one and two.”
Step three of the recruitment process states that “racial equity accountability must be tied to specific outcomes.”
The outcomes clearly are centered on activism on behalf of the BLM movement.
Noting BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors is featured on the homepage of the Wake County School System’s website, The Federalist points out she and another co-founder are self-proclaimed “trained Marxists.”
In a 2018 interview, Cullors also boasted of receiving training from a former member of the domestic terrorist group Weather Underground who was charged with attempted murder of police officers in Boston in 1969.
Cullors is a vocal anti-Israel activist and close ally of the anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. She organized a BLM event in Los Angeles May 30 in which three Jewish schools and five synagogues were vandalized with graffiti such as “Free Palestine” and “F-ck Israel.”
Another public school plan, in Philadelphia, aims to “work towards an anti-racist agenda” and “learning mindsets and practices rooted in Black liberation,” The Federalist reports.
Black liberation is a Marxist theological and social movement that emerged in the late 1960s that regards America and all of its institutions as “systemically racist.”
President Barack Obama’s former spiritual leader Rev. Jeremiah Wright was a devotee who famously summed up the movement in a sermon: “No, no, no, not God bless America! God d-mn America.”

THE COMET NEOWISE is now gracing our skies, having survived its closet passage to the Sun on July 3. This visitor from the far reaches of our solar system is visible from the Northern Hemisphere, both an hour before sunrise and an hour after sunset. NEOWISE will be at its closest proximity to the Earth on July 22, after which it will gradually disappear from our skies, not to return for 6,800 years.
A comet is a messenger, bringing new energy and expanded Truth to those who are open to receive. Astrologer Mary Elizabeth Jochmans writes that a comet’s messages “come as sudden flashes of information that may be difficult to retain.” Like dream imagery, if we do not capture these insights by writing them down, they can quickly fade.
Ms. Jochmans also suggests that if we resist the transformational energies and insights brought by a comet, “unusual illnesses may arise that are difficult to diagnose or cure.” Whereas, if we receive and utilize these energies, “they become useful tools for expansion and growth,” with the potential to affect the etheric field from which our physical reality is formed.
ASTROLOGERS always consider the name given to a celestial object when setting out to interpret its meaning. For this comet to have been dubbed NEOWISE emphasizes its role as a bringer of New Wisdom – something that humanity greatly needs in these changing times. With the comet so clearly visible now, we are encouraged to turn our attention upward as much as possible to receive higher perspectives and Divine Truth.
Since the comet NEOWISE has become visible, many have reported an increase in symptoms of mild to moderate dizziness. Might we be adjusting to changes occurring in the etheric blueprint as the comet draws ever closer to the Earth?
WE START our new week with a lovely sextile aspect on Monday between Neptune and the asteroid Pallas Athene. Athene was the ancient Greek goddess of Wisdom, Strategy, and Healing. Her collaboration with mystical and compassionate Neptune enables us to more clearly access higher realms and bring information through that can help us resolve current problems.
This influence is likely to increase that heady or “other-worldly” feeling that we’ve been experiencing of late. We might want to use the energy of this sextile through meditation or a creative project. As we engage in this way, disconnecting from the harshness of “real” world for a while, we can grow our spiritual faith in the unfolding of a cosmic plan, while also enhancing skills of intuition, telepathy, and psychic healing.
OLD PATTERNS come to the surface throughout the coming week, with the Sun opposite Jupiter (Tuesday) and Pluto (Wednesday), and square Eris (Thursday). With the Sun in Cancer, we may be feeling especially emotional and vulnerable, and can easily default to fight-or-flight mode.
If you start to feel defensive, remember that the Crab has the ability to sidle, to move sideways out of range of a perceived threat. Doing this helps us regain our composure and allows us to observe the situation from a different, more objective perspective. Once our pulse is no longer racing, when the fight-or-flight instinct has subsided, we can then return to calmly address the issues that have been raised.
AS THE SUN interacts with Jupiter, Pluto, and Eris, it will trigger events that relate to the longer-term Jupiter-Pluto alignment and the Jupiter/Pluto-Eris square. This means we are likely to see important developments this week in the profound global and personal transmutations that are underway.
The first Jupiter-Pluto conjunction occurred back in early April, when we were at the height of the first wave in the COVID-19 crisis. A quick glance at today’s news headlines, just two weeks after the second Jupiter-Pluto alignment, confirms that the crisis is reaching another peak in many parts of the United States and elsewhere.
It follows suit that new restrictions (Jupiter-Pluto in Capricorn) will most likely be put into effect this week to try to interrupt the current momentum. Meanwhile, protests (Eris in Aries) against existing social behaviors and political systems (Capricorn) continue to be waged across the globe, in response to decades and centuries of racial injustice, human rights violations, and political corruption.
ADDING to the tension this week, Mars aligns with Chiron in Aries on Tuesday. Any time Chiron is involved, we have a two-step process. First, a wound is revealed, exposed to the air so that it can heal. Then, we have the opportunity to heal the wound, and to emerge with fewer scars than before.
The wound of Chiron in Aries often manifests as a deep fear that we will never have what we want, that our needs and desires will never be met. As a result, we can experience equally deep anger – at life, at others, or even at ourselves.
The healing of Chiron’s wounds always require that we invoke new levels of self-love and self-care, for what we are experiencing is the fear and reactivity of a small-child aspect of our being who feels hopeless and helpless. As we turn to these parts of ourselves, embracing them with understanding and love, we enable them to heal and to become an ally on our journey. Because, it is this childlike part of ourselves that knows what we truly do want, and has both the courage and idealism to help us pursue it.

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK: You are in the midst of a powerful time of change, not only globally, but also for you personally. Your self-understanding and core identity are undergoing a profound transformation, to such a extent that you may not recognize yourself by the end of this coming year. In many ways, you are reclaiming your inner authority and personal power after many years of having identified yourself based on how other people respond to you or treat you. You may be able to relate current shifts back to 1980-81, when you were also experiencing deep changes. This coming year provides opportunities for you to take what you learned back then to new levels, and to emerge with stronger boundaries and self-worth than before.

The original author is Beda M Stadler, the original article is linked at the top. I apologise for any typos, as noted in some of your comments. I have corrected hopefully most of them now.

Coronavirus: Why everyone was wrong
The immune response to the virus is stronger than everyone thought
The original article was published in the Swiss magazine Weltwoche (World Week) on June 10th. The author, Beda M Stadler is the former director of the Institute for Immunology at the University of Bern, a biologist and professor emeritus. Stadler is an important medical professional in Switzerland, he also likes to use provoking language, which should not deter you from the extremely important points he makes.
This article is about Switzerland and it does not suggest that the situation is exactly the same globally. I am advocating for local measures according to local situations. And I advocate for looking at real data rather than abstract models. I also suggest to read to the end, because Stadler makes crucial points about testing for Sars-CoV-2.
Warum alle falsch lagen
Das Coronavirus verzieht sich allmählich. Was hat sich in den vergangenen Wochen eigentlich abgespielt? Die…
The coronavirus is slowly retreating. What actually happened in the past few weeks? The experts have missed basic connections. The immune response against the virus is much stronger than we thought.
By Beda M Stadler
This is not an accusation, but a ruthless taking stock [of the current situation]. I could slap myself, because I looked at Sars-CoV2- way too long with panic. I am also somewhat annoyed with many of my immunology colleagues who so far have left the discussion about Covid-19 to virologist and epidemiologist. I feel it is time to criticise some of the main and completely wrong public statements about this virus.
Firstly, it was wrong to claim that this virus was novel. Secondly, It was even more wrong to claim that the population would not already have some immunity against this virus. Thirdly, it was the crowning of stupidity to claim that someone could have Covid-19 without any symptoms at all or even to pass the disease along without showing any symptoms whatsoever.
But let’s look at this one by one.
1. A new virus?
At the end of 2019 a coronavirus, which was considered novel, was detected in China. When the gene sequence, i.e. the blueprint of this virus, was identified and was given a similar name to the 2002 identified Sars, i.e. Sars-CoV-2, we should have already asked ourselves then how far [this virus] is related to other coronaviruses, which can make human beings sick. But no, instead we discussed from which animal as part of a Chinese menu the virus might have sprung. In the meantime, however, many more people believe the Chinese were so stupid as to release this virus upon themselves in their own country. Now that we’re talking about developing a vaccine against the virus, we suddenly see studies which show that this so-called novel virus is very strongly related to Sars-1 as well as other beta-coronaviruses which make us suffer every year in the form of colds. Apart from the pure homologies in the sequence between the various coronaviruses which can make people sick, [scientists] currently work on identifying a number of areas on the virus in the same way as human immune cells identify them. This is no longer about the genetic relationship, but about how our immune system sees this virus, i.e. which parts of other coronaviruses could potentially be used in a vaccine.
So: Sars-Cov-2 isn’t all that new, but merely a seasonal cold virus that mutated and disappears in summer, as all cold viruses do — which is what we’re observing globally right now. Flu viruses mutate significantly more, by the way, and nobody would ever claim that a new flu virus strain was completely novel. Many veterinary doctors were therefore annoyed by this claim of novelty, as they have been vaccinating cats, dogs, pigs, and cows for years against coronaviruses.
2. The fairy tale of no immunity
From the World Health Organisation (WHO) to every Facebook-virologist, everyone claimed this virus was particularly dangerous, because there was no immunity against it, because it was a novel virus. Even Anthony Fauci, the most important advisor to the Trump administration noted at the beginning at every public appearance that the danger of the virus lay in the fact that there was no immunity against it. Tony and I often sat next to each other at immunology seminars at the National Institute of Health in Bethesda in the US, because we worked in related fields back then. So for a while I was pretty uncritical of his statements, since he was a respectable colleague of mine. The penny dropped only when I realised that the first commercially available antibody test [for Sars-CoV-2] was put together from an old antibody test that was meant to detect Sars-1. This kind of test evaluates if there are antibodies in someone’s blood and if they came about through an early fight against the virus. [Scientists] even extracted antibodies from a llama that would detect Sars-1, Sars-CoV-2, and even the Mers virus. It also became known that Sars-CoV-2 had a less significant impact in areas in China where Sars-1 had previously raged. This is clear evidence urgently suggesting that our immune system considers Sars-1 and Sars-Cov-2 at least partially identical and that one virus could probably protect us from the other.
That’s when I realised that the entire world simply claimed that there was no immunity, but in reality, nobody had a test ready to prove such a statement. That wasn’t science, but pure speculation based on a gut feeling that was then parroted by everyone. To this day there isn’t a single antibody test that can describe all possible immunological situations, such as: if someone is immune, since when, what the neutralising antibodies are targeting and how many structures exist on other coronaviruses that can equally lead to immunity.
In mid-April, work was published by the group of Andreas Thiel at the Charité Berlin. A paper with 30 authors, amongst them the virologist Christian Drosten. It showed that in 34 % of people in Berlin who had never been in contact with the Sars-CoV-2 virus showed nonetheless T-cell immunity against it (T-cell immunity is a different kind of immune reaction, see below). This means that our T-cells, i.e. white blood cells, detect common structures appearing on Sars-CoV-2 and regular cold viruses and therefore combat both of them.
A study by John P A Ioannidis of Stanford University — according to the Einstein Foundation in Berlin one of the world’s ten most cited scientists — showed that immunity against Sars-Cov-2, measured in the form of antibodies, is much higher than previously thought. Ioannidis is certainly not a conspiracy theorist who just wants to swim against the stream; nontheless he is now being criticised, because the antibody tests used were not extremely precise. With that, his critics admit that they do not have such tests yet. And aside, John P A Ioannidis is such a scientific heavy-weight that all German virologists combined are a light-weight in comparison.
3. The failure of modellers
Epidemiologist also fell for the myth that there was no immunity in the population. They also didn’t want to believe that coronaviruses were seasonal cold viruses that would disappear in summer. Otherwise their curve models would have looked differently. When the initial worst case scenarios didn’t come true anywhere, some now still cling to models predicting a second wave. Let’s leave them their hopes — I’ve never seen a scientific branch that manoeuvred itself so much into the offside. I have also not yet understood why epidemiologists were so much more interested in the number of deaths, rather than in the numbers that could be saved.
4. Immunology of common sense
As an immunologist I trust a biological model, namely that of the human organism, which has built a tried and tested, adaptive immune system. At the end of February, driving home from the recording of [a Swiss political TV debate show], I mentioned to Daniel Koch [former head of the Swiss federal section “Communicable Diseases” of the Federal Office of Public Health] that I suspected there was a general immunity in the population against Sars-Cov-2. He argued against my view. I later defended him anyway, when he said that children were not a driving factor in the spread of the pandemic. He suspected that children didn’t have a receptor for the virus, which is of course nonsense. Still, we had to admit that his observations were correct. But the fact that every scientist attacked him afterwards and asked for studies to prove his point, was somewhat ironic. Nobody asked for studies to prove that people in certain at-risk groups were dying. When the first statistics from China and later worldwide data showed the same trend, that is to say that almost no children under ten years old got sick, everyone should have made the argument that children clearly have to be immune. For every other disease that doesn’t afflict a certain group of people, we would come to the conclusion that that group is immune. When people are sadly dying in a retirement home, but in the same place other pensioners with the same risk factors are left entirely unharmed, we should also conclude that they were presumably immune.
But this common sense seems to have eluded many, let’s call them “immunity deniers” just for fun. This new breed of deniers had to observe that the majority of people who tested positive for this virus, i.e. the virus was present in their throats, did not get sick. The term “silent carriers” was conjured out of a hat and it was claimed that one could be sick without having symptoms. Wouldn’t that be something! If this principle from now on gets naturalised into the realm of medicine, health insurers would really have a problem, but also teachers whose students could now claim to have whatever disease to skip school, if at the end of the day one didn’t need symptoms anymore to be sick.
The next joke that some virologists shared was the claim that those who were sick without symptoms could still spread the virus to other people. The “healthy” sick would have so much of the virus in their throats that a normal conversation between two people would be enough for the “healthy one” to infect the other healthy one. At this point we have to dissect what is happening here: If a virus is growing anywhere in the body, also in the throat, it means that human cells decease. When [human] cells decease, the immune system is alerted immediately and an infection is caused. One of five cardinal symptoms of an infection is pain. It is understandable that those afflicted by Covid-19 might not remember that initial scratchy throat and then go on to claim that they didn’t have any symptoms just a few days ago. But for doctors and virologists to twist this into a story of “healthy” sick people, which stokes panic and was often given as a reason for stricter lockdown measures, just shows how bad the joke really is. At least the WHO didn’t accept the claim of asymptomatic infections and even challenges this claim on its website.
Here a succinct and brief summary, especially for the immunity deniers, of how humans are attacked by germs and how we react to them: If there are pathogenic viruses in our environment, then all humans — whether immune or not — are attacked by this virus. If someone is immune, the battle with the virus begins. First we try to prevent the virus from binding to our own cells with the help of antibodies. This normally works only partially, not all are blocked and some viruses will attach to the appropriate cells. That doesn’t need to lead to symptoms, but it’s also not a disease. Because the second guard of the immune system is now called into action. That’s the above mentioned T-cells, white blood cells, which can determine from the outside in which other cells the virus is now hiding to multiply. These cells, which are now incubating the virus, are searched throughout the entire body and killed by the T-cells until the last virus is dead.
So if we do a PCR corona test on an immune person, it is not a virus that is detected, but a small shattered part of the viral genome. The test comes back positive for as long as there are tiny shattered parts of the virus left. Correct: Even if the infectious viruses are long dead, a corona test can come back positive, because the PCR method multiplies even a tiny fraction of the viral genetic material enough [to be detected]. That’s exactly what happened, when there was the global news, even shared by the WHO, that 200 Koreans who already went through Covid-19 were infected a second time and that there was therefore probably no immunity against this virus. The explanation of what really happened and an apology came only later, when it was clear that the immune Koreans were perfectly healthy and only had a short battle with the virus. The crux was that the virus debris registered with the overly sensitive test and therefore came back as “positive”. It is likely that a large number of the daily reported infection numbers are purely due to viral debris.
The PCR test with its extreme sensitivity was initially perfect to find out where the virus could be. But this test can not identify whether the virus is still alive, i.e. still infectous. Unfortunately, this also led some virologists to equate the strength of a test result with viral load, i.e. the amount of virus someone can breathe out. Luckily, our day care centres stayed open nontheless. Since German virologist missed that part, because, out of principle, they do not look at what other countries are doing, even if other countries’ case numbers are falling more rapidly.
5. The problem with corona immunity
What does this all mean in real life? The extremely long incubation time of two to 14 days — and reports of 22 to 27 days — should wake up any immunologist. As well as the claim that most patients would no longer secrete the virus after five days. Both [claims] in turn actually lead to the conclusion that there is — sort of in the background — a base immunity that contorts the events, compared to an expected cycle [of a viral infection] — i.e. leads to a long incubation period and quick immunity. This immunity also seems to be the problem for patients with a sever course of the disease. Our antibody titre, i.e. the accuracy of our defence system, is reduced the older we get. But also people with a bad diet or who are malnourished may have a weakened immune system, which is why this virus does not only reveal the medical problems of a country, but also social issues.
If an infected person does not have enough antibodies, i.e. a weak immune response, the virus slowly spreads out across the entire body. Now that there are not enough antibodies, there is only the second, supporting leg of our immune response left: The T-cells beginn to attack the virus-infested cells all over the body. This can lead to an exaggerated immune response, basically to a massive slaughter; this is called a Cytokine Storm. Very rarely this can also happen in small children, in that case called Kawasaki Syndrome. This very rare occurrence in children was also used in our country to stoke panic. It’s interesting, however, that this syndrome is very easily cured. The [affected] children get antibodies from healthy blood donors, i.e. people who went through coronavirus colds. This means that the hushed-up [supposedly non-existent] immunity in the population is in fact used therapeutically.
The virus is gone for now. It will probably come back in winter, but it won’t be a second wave, but just a cold. Those young and healthy people who currently walk around with a mask on their faces would be better off wearing a helmet instead, because the risk of something falling on their head is greater than that of getting a serious case of Covid-19.
If we observe a significant rise in infections in 14 days [after the Swiss relaxed the lockdown], we’d at least know that one of the measures was useful. Other than that I recommend reading John P A Ioannidis’ latest work in which he describes the global situation based on data on May 1st 2020: People below 65 years old make up only 0.6 to 2.6 % of all fatal Covid cases. To get on top of the pandemic, we need a strategy merely concentrating on the protection of at-risk people over 65. If that’s the opinion of a top expert, a second lockdown is simply a no-go.
On our way back to normal, it would be good for us citizens if a few scaremongers apologised. Such as doctors who wanted a triage of over 80 year old Covid patients in order to stop ventilating them. Also media that kept showing alarmist videos of Italian hospitals to illustrate a situation that as such didn’t exist. All politicians calling for “testing, testing, testing” without even knowing what the test actually measures. And the federal government for an app they’ll never get to work and will warn me if someone near me is positive, even if they’re not infectious.
In winter, when the flu and other colds make the rounds again, we can then go back to kissing each other a little less, and we should wash our hands even without a virus present. And people who’ll get sick nonetheless can then don their masks to show others what they have learned from this pandemic. And if we still haven’t learned to protect our at-risk groups, we’ll have to wait for a vaccine that will hopefully also be effective in at-risk people.

Recognizing psychological childhood triggers that lead to defense mechanisms and a lifetime of self-sabotage is the first part of understanding how we may find ourselves here later in life. Practical tools and methods are then offered to help us re-pattern our learned response, re-wire out brain and overcome self-sabotage so we can function, embrace opportunity and thrive as we were meant to. I can definitely relate, as I was able to re-visit those childhood moments that caused me to shut down and give up in an effort to protect myself, or later in life, behavior responses that may quell my anxiety but only delay the inevitable need to take action. Insightful, helpful and practical information. ~PB

Dear friends, I am Jeshua, your friend. I greet you all from my heart. I connect with each and every one of you, so feel that connection between us. Although each one walks an individual path, there is a resonance, a joint desire and search, a shared humanity between us. Feel the living heart that beats in each one of you and have compassion for one another. You are gathered here in a group, so respect the other persons, although you do not yet know them very well.
Behind everyone’s face is a story, a depth, a history that explains why someone is as she or he is, so listen to the other person’s story. The longer you listen to the story of another person, the deeper you will eventually understand and recognize a common core: the same roots in the other person as in yourself. There then emerges a sense of unity, and differences dissolve and you reach out a hand to the other person. And when many people reach out a hand to one another, a fertile ground is created and love flows to Earth. This is what is now happening and all of you here want to participate in this flow, which is why I respect you deeply. We all are on this path together.
In growing toward the One, to a unified understanding, to compassion for one another, the female energy plays a large role. It is the connecting element between people, as well as between all living things. Let us now feel the female energy here in our midst. It is your beating heart, a heart that forgives, a heart that understands, a heart that builds bridges. Let the gentleness of this connecting energy flow through you and through us all. Feel its gentleness, and at the same time, its indestructible power. The heart that understands and forgives, that reaches out a hand to another, is the most powerful energy that exists in the universe, causing new creations to take place and old wounds to be healed. It is now time for healing, because deep wounds have been caused in people and to life on Earth.
I ask you to now connect with the Earth beneath your feet, here and now, where you sit. Let your consciousness inwardly descend through your legs and feet as if it has roots going into the Earth. Feel the Earth and nature around you, the wind that blows, its power, its sound. You are part of this reality, and the Earth is aware of you and experiences you. When you attune to the Earth, it creates a connection and you feel and experience that the Earth would like to enter into a relationship with you. Let the Earth now speak to you, and it does not have to be in words. Simply experience a wave of energy that wants to now come to you from nature, from the natural environment. What the Earth has to say to you can be different for each person. Allow it to flow up from bottom to top – and relax. Everything that you feel is good; just breathe into your abdomen.
You are here for a reason. You have selected this place on Earth, partly consciously and partly unconsciously, from intuitive layers within yourself. Engage these intuitive layers now by descending into them, into the feeling, connecting part of you. What do you need from the Earth here? The Earth desires to give you something, so let it come to you. Feel sustained by nature here, by the Earth.
One of the ways to connect with the female energy is to “lose” your mind by surrendering to a flow of life that cannot be grasped by the mind. This you do by consciously being in your body and not only in your head, but in your arms and legs, your mid-section, your pelvis, and feel what wants to flow there.
I said in the beginning that the female energy leads you to what connects you with other people, to unity. But you cannot really make that connection to another without first being connected to yourself and being at home in yourself; when you can descend into your body and your emotions and can truly be who you are without judgment and attempts to suppress with your mind.
The first step, then, to unity and connection, and to an open heart, is to dare to descend very deeply into yourself. The connection with the Earth can greatly serve you here, so feel her presence. The Earth is natural through and through, so she has no problem with the rhythms, mood swings, and emotions you have as a human being: a being of nature. Everything is acceptable to her – light and dark – so feel the naturalness of her presence.
I ask you again: what does the Earth give to you here in this place? And If you find it difficult to discover what that is, then connect to the inner child in your abdomen. It is the part of you that is most free from your head, from judgment, from the regulating mind. It lives, it moves, it is spontaneous. It wants to talk with you continually and to remain connected, but you sometimes keep it away for fear of what it wants to tell you – allow it to speak now.
What does your inner child experience here? Connect with it, put your arm around it, and look at it again. Feel all the excitement of this child, the passion, the gleam in its eyes. Reach out your hand and take the hand of your inner child. Stand with both feet on the Earth, connected with nature around you and within you, connected with an alive, playful child of nature, because that is who you are – you have come here to play. In contrast to anything else you have been told by way of your work or school or society, it is the playful child within you that is the most natural and, therefore, the most spiritual part of you. Trust her, trust him, and let go of your mind.
We have now taken the step inward to connecting with your inner child and with the Earth, with the nature within you. If you are at home in this way of being, connected with yourself, then connecting with other people becomes something special, something more relaxed and playful, exploring and free. Doing that is hugely illuminating; it makes the burden lighter. Because, on the one hand, you are deeply looking for connection with one another, and on the other hand, so many things keep you back from entering into a truly open and uninhibited connection with another and with yourself.
You are full of judgments, admonitions, prohibitions, taboos, all entangled in a cultural tradition in which a mental energy, a male energy, has had the upper hand. It is now time to let go of this energy – this habit – even though it still has a hold on your lives. You have been fooled into believing that in order to be a good person you ought to be serious, controlled, responsible, but the road to connection, to a harmonious world, can only really happen through the playful, inner child. The old male energy must give way to the child within you. But doing this can lead to an inner struggle within you, because, in part, you are still chained to the old, compulsive judgements.
How do you deal with this transition from the old to the new? You can fight against the old or you can go along with the new, and you know that fighting always leads to energy loss, to exhaustion. You cannot convince the old of the goodness and the importance of the new, which is why I am asking you to look for yourself. Is it not better to travel a path of lightness and joy and to trust the messages you receive when you are deeply in touch with the Earth and with your inner child?
Your female energy can help you to do this. Each time you go inward, allow things to be as they naturally are from an open heart that understands and forgives – and first of all, understands and forgives yourself. Then a basis is created, a foundation, an inner strength from which the connection with the world, and with others, becomes quite different – richer and deeper. First receive yourself from an open heart and then it becomes natural to receive another from an open heart. Allow the energy of the open heart to encircle us all. You do not have to do anything, it is already there. Imagine that you can lean into it to receive it, and in receiving it, you give it to others.
