Free transforming fear and other booklets, a natural source of iodine protection, uplifting video and more!


#1- This morning I had someone request the free booklet 22 Powerful Tools to Transform Your Fear that I offer on my website. That prompted me to re-read the booklet myself, and in doing so it occurred to me that the information could be of great value to people right now.  So if anyone would like a copy of Transform Your Fear, just send an e-mail to and put “TYF booklet” in the subject line and I’ll be glad to send you the pdf.

#2 – If you are looking for a way to fortify yourself against possible radiation and other toxic substances, you may want to check out my website’s What’s New page for information about a superfood that is a superior blend of 7 whole-food sea vegetables. I did some research after hearing about it at Natural News and was impressed with both the product and company. The product supplies all your body’s daily nutritional needs, plus offers natural protection from radiation and other toxic substances. The company adheres to universal principles in the way the business is run and is dedicated to giving back to the community through Feeding America and offering fund-raising opportunities to non-profits across the U.S. That’s my kind of win-win-win situation! You can also get updated information about radiation and iodine, plus two free reports, one on weight loss, the other on glutathione and anti-aging. Check out my What’s New page, or e-mail me at if you want to know more.

#3 – Here’s a link to a really inspiring and uplifting video, thanks to the folks at Evolutionezine:

And I hope everyone was able to participate in the World Prayer for the waters of Japan at noon today (see previous post). I am urging people to not make this a one time thing; I have been offering the prayer off and on since I first heard about the event and plan on continuing to do so as often as I can, not only for the waters of Japan, but also for those affected by the BP spill and other disasters, whether natural or man-made.

Best wishes, Zirah aka “Zippy”

World prayer for “healing” water of Japan & Mary Morrissey on Living and Building Your Dreams

#1- Here’s a great idea from Masuru Emoto and a perfect way to help the people and water of Japan (and the rest of the world, since we are all One). The only thing I would recommend is that we do the process/prayer as often as we can remember to, and not just make it a one time thing tomorrow at noon…
A water crystal formed while projecting love to it
To All People Around the World
Please send your prayers of love and gratitude to water at the nuclear plants in Fukushima, Japan!
By the massive earthquakes of Magnitude 9 and surreal massive tsunamis, more than 10,000 people are still missing…even now… It has been 16 days already since the disaster happened. What makes it worse is that water at the reactors of Fukushima Nuclear Plants started to leak, and it’s contaminating the ocean, air and water molecule of surrounding areas.  
Human wisdom has not been able to do much to solve the problem, but we are only trying to cool down the anger of radioactive materials in the reactors by discharging water to them.
Is there really nothing else to do?
I think there is. During over twenty year research of hado measuring and water crystal photographic technology, I have been witnessing that water can turn positive when it receives pure vibration of human prayer no matter how far away it is.
Energy formula of Albert Einstein, E=MC2 really means that Energy = number of people and the square of people’s consciousness.
Now is the time to understand the true meaning. Let us all join the prayer ceremony as fellow citizens of the planet earth.    I would like to ask all people, not just in Japan, but all around the world to please help us to find a way out the crisis of this planet!!
The prayer procedure is as follows:
Name of ceremony:
“Let’s send our thoughts of love and gratitude to all water in the nuclear plants in Fukushima”
Day and Time:
March 31 st , 2011 (Thursday)
12:00 noon in each time zone
Please say the following phrase:
“The water of Fukushima Nuclear Plant, we are sorry to make you suffer.   Please forgive us.   We thank you, and we love you.”  
Please say it aloud or in your mind. Repeat it three times as you put your hands together in a prayer position.
Please offer your sincere prayer.  
Thank you very much from my heart.
With love and gratitude,
Masaru Emoto
Messenger of Water  
If you are unfamiliar with Emoto’s work, check out You will be amazed!

Please share this post freely with anyone who might be interested in participating.
 #2- LOA and wealth guru Mary Morrissey is offering 3 free videos and a tele-seminar on discovering and building your dreams. I’m always inspired and uplifted by Mary’s energized and straight-forward, “uncluttered” way of presenting how to work with, and make the most of, our creative potential…

#2 – Here’s the weekly update on planetary happenings from shamanic astrologer Tami Brunk

March 28 to 31

Sun square Pluto

We have access to a tremendous amount of raw, creative energy on Monday, when the Sun squares Pluto, followed by the big transit of the month–Saturn opposite Jupiter. As the Sun illuminates the Plutonian dimension, we can feel and see more clearly the transformational nature of the Earth changes occurring at such speed, and so dramatically, all around us.

Pluto is the Dark Feminine, shamanic force that destroys all that is out of balance in us and our world, creating the conditions for us to be reborn and made whole. And of course we are seeing so much destruction at this time. Great Mystery (the Sun) can assist us in holding an awareness of the life force beneath and emerging from these death processes, helping us to more consciously work with them to nourish and hold the processes of profound healing, renewal, and growth from the rubble.

Saturn opposite Jupiter

The positive or conscious dimension of the Sun Pluto dynamic is amplified by the Saturn Jupiter opposition, which represents a tremendous potential for us to create new form from the unraveling occurring around us. One could say that the Saturn (contraction, or in-breath), and Jupiter (expansion, or out-breath) forces within our world are the very basis for the creation of life. Both Jupiter and Saturn are “Middle World” planets, meaning that they impact change in a very “real world” manner.

Within Shamanic Astrology opposition is referred to as “polar resonance”-as it is seen as a very growth oriented dynamic. It is the fully balanced relationship between two halves of a whole, dancing with one another and creating life from the fertile tension held between.  With an opposition, we can see clearly the contrast and difference we are working, and so can engage with it more directly.

With Saturn in Libra and Jupiter in Aries, this dance of tension we have been engaged in between Self and Other–the impulse for connection and community contrasted with a fierce desire to charge forward in life with pure focus on our individual mission and goals–is lit up. This dynamic encourages us to use this tension as fuel to craft and design lives in alignment with our greatest individual passions, balanced with heart connection and creation with others.

I have an Aries Ascendant (self/life purpose) while my partner has a Libra ascendant. This means that our Descendants’ (partnership path) is in Libra/Aries respectively. So we have been working this energy of polar resonance for the past 4 ½ years. What I have been learning is that I cannot fully connect or bond unless I am attending to my individual path. I cannot “merge” without having and holding a strong sense of self and identity.

 When I meet a strong contrast between my own desire and that of my partner, I can be tempted into one of two traps–over-empathize in order to connect to the degree that my own preferences become blurred with his; or push him away to protect myself and my autonomy.  A third option is to ground into my core, be vulnerable enough to hold and share my own truth-and do my best to open a space in my heart and mind to see and honor his unique desire and perspective.   

Venus in Pisces Release at the 3rd Chakra 

Over the weekend, Venus was conjunct Neptune (Saturday) then moved into the sign of Pisces (Sunday), giving a dreamy quality to our week. The Sacred Feminine (Venus) which is currently evolving on the world stage as the Scorpio Goddess, is now in the dissolution process. She is receiving a download from the collective; developing sensitivity and empathic awareness. This empathetic quality will be deepened into compassion on Tuesday when Venus is conjunct Chiron.

All of this occurs as the Goddess/Venus completes her cycle of release and clearing at the Heart Chakra. She is now preparing to pass through the 5th Gate early Thursday morning. This activates clearing and releasing at the 3rd Chakra, or Solar Plexus, as she continues her initiatory descent to the Underworld.

The 3rd Chakra is all about self-valuing, self-esteem, and developing strong ego and will. This is a powerful time for us to invite a natural, clearing and releasing of toxic beliefs and burdens we have accumulated through our lives and from our ancestors that block us from a full embrace of our intrinsic value and worth. Most of us have been steeped from birth in the “Original Sin” concept.

What habits and attitudes exacerbate and confirm the idea that “I am not enough,” I am not worthy,” “I am sinful,” “I am flawed?” Ask for assistance in releasing this old patterning, and know that the process is already underway. This wonderful TED talk speaks beautifully of the power of self-valuing, and the role of vulnerability (Pisces and Chiron) in developing it.  

Mercury Stations Retrograde

On Wednesday, Mercury stations retrograde in the sign of Aries.  So of course, prior to this date back up your computers, and for the next 3 weeks, be particularly mindful when driving. Mercury retrograde is a kind of coyote trickster energy whose intent is to grab our attention and force us to be awake and aware. We cannot get by with unconsciously plodding through our days, expecting the middle world (traffic, communications, etc.) to run like clockwork.

Rather, we should expect the unexpected, develop patience and humor when situations go awry, and understand that our rational, linear minds cannot provide us with a roadmap for joyful, exuberant living. Consider Mercury Retrograde an invitation to take the long road home, to enjoy the scenery, to slow down and fully appreciate the quirky, ridiculous (and delicious) elements in our lives.

With Mercury retrograde in Aries, this is also a tremendously powerful time for us to tune into our intuition-to receive lightning fast insights and awareness around what we should do next, what actions we should take. Trust that, rather than your bewildered mind, which cannot be the lead at this moment in time. Also–once you stop trying to manage everything, FUN should be a side benefit of this aspect!

#3 – Here’s some words of wisdom from Guy Finley…

  “We must deliberately remember our intention to start our whole life over every moment we awaken to find ourselves reliving some past conflict. To cultivate this refreshed outlook, born of remembering that our true life is always new in the Now, is to let go of who we have been and to begin reaping a life free of anger and fear.”–Guy Finley

Mind Movies, Wellness Revolution, Quantum Healing, making sprouts and Abraham. Wow!


Several years ago I purchased the old version of the Mind Movies technology and made 4 “movies”—one that focused on health and well-being, one on career, success and abundance, one on spirituality, and another that was a mix of everything else. Using the technology was a great way to gain clarity about what I wanted and feed my subconscious on a regular basis the images and affirmations to create it. But the process was labor intensive and sometimes exasperating, especially since I wasn’t that computer savvy at the time. Well, that was then and this is NOW, and the Mind Movies people have come up with a new version of the cutting-edge technology that is not only much less expensive than what I paid, but so easy to use it’s almost a point and click operation.

If you want to become more conscious in attracting what your heart’s desires, then this is for you. It combines all the important aspects (visualization, affirmations, emotional intensity, focus, the subsconscious, etc.) for using the Law of Attraction effectively and even offers a subliminal program where you can watch your movies while you work on other things on your computer. Wow! PLUS you get 6 free pre-made movies just for checking out the introductory videos featuring such greats in the wealth and abundance field as Bob Proctor (from The Secret), Bob Doyle and Joe Vitale. For a fantastic, fun way to up your conscious creation quotient, check out Mind Movies here.

*Why sprouts can have 2x+ the minerals of commercial vegetables

*How to start growing at home (fast, cheap, delicious)

*How to eat or juice your homegrown crop

#4 – And finally, here’s today’s quote from Abraham…

“Is Abraham saying that you could reach what you consider to be a prime human physical condition and that you could maintain it for as long as you remain physically focused in this body? The answer is, absolutely yes. And it doesn’t mean reach your prime and then jump off a cliff the same day, either. It means, reach your prime and bask in the deliciousness of that. Now, why is other than that the more consistent experience? Because most everybody is looking around and vibrating in response to what they are seeing. So, what is the solution? Look around less. Imagine more. Look around less. Imagine more. Until your imagery is the most familiar vibration that you have.”— Abraham

Prayer circle for Japan & inspiring letter, Caroline Myss replay, full moon update, Dyer/Lipton video, and meditation to ease fear


 I am editing today’s post and adding this article and news of a prayer circle via Adoley Odunton at Healthier Living and placing it before the rest of today’s picks because I think it’s the most important part of the post. Please read this inspiring and enlightening article from a member of Adoley’s on-line community who has been living in Japan for the last 5 yrs. (and, if you’re drawn, participate in the prayer circle tomorrow)…

Letter from Japan by Healthier Living Community Member, Jennifer Rodriquez
nullJennifer Rodriguez is an American living in Japan for 5 years. She is an ESL Instructor (English as a Second Language) in Japan and a member of our community.This is what she had to say: 

“Things are stressful here because of the constant threat of radiation exposure but surprisingly the Japanese are remaining calm and despite what the mass media abroad says, no one is leaving en masse and people are facing the issue with a philosophical calm that I believe can only be possible of a country with a Buddhist background.  There’s no rioting, looting, nor anger being expressed at the government.  People here continue to have faith and hope that the workers at the plant will find a way to cool those reactors and avert nuclear disaster.  And even with this big threat looming in the background, the Japanese carry on with their daily lives.
Being in Japan at this time and our connecting has been a powerful
lesson for me about believing and manufacturing optimism for
yourself even when all evidence points to there being no hope and
all logic seems to say you should lose hope.  I’m still in Tokyo
despite pleas from my family and friends to get out, because I
believe that all will turn out well in the end and I’m very hopeful.  I continue to believe and I believe the Universe sends me small messages not to lose hope.  

There are food shortages but somehow the supermarkets are still finding some way to get us fresh fish, vegetables and meat every day.  How?  I don’t know.  It’s almost like they pull it out of thin air.  Just when you think the food is going to run out, the next day they scrouge up some more from somewhere.  It just goes to prove that the Universe is really an abundant place even in the face of disaster!

Adoley, do you know what could really help in this moment?  If you rounded up all the members of your community and formed a special prayer circle to send energy and inspiration to all the workers at the Fukushima Power Plant that they persevere and find a way to cool those reactors and avert disaster.  Visualize Japan ending this threat safely and without horrible consequences.  See Japan as a happy country with the threat gone. 

I honestly believe that if you and all the conscious people of this planet did that, then some solution would present itself to the workers or arrive in some shape or form. 

The more positive collective energy we could get for Japan, the more it would help improve the situation and counterbalance all the negativity and sensationalism of the General Media which has just been shamelessly promoting panic and desperation about Japan.

The more spiritual leaders with communities such as yourself that you could contact and have them visualize and pray for a safe end to this threat, the more possibility of a better outcome.  Then that would be wonderful and give the situation more positive power.

….This is not for me but for the country of Japan and consequently the world at large.  If workers at that plant do not receive any kind of special help, they will not be able to continue forward and find a solution. Many of them have exposed themselves to unsafe levels of radiation and there’s no doubt that at some point, they will contract cancer and die.  Yet they even though they know this, they selflessly devote themselves to concentrating on the task at hand and have accepted the risk of sacrificing their lives because they know that all humanity is at risk if they do not persevere. 

….I actually feel more positive about this situation and even though, it seems grim now, I have honest hope and faith that all will turn out in the end and this situation will end safely.  In part that’s why I choose to stay and not run away.  I have faith.” ~ Jennifer


Like Jennifer, I have faith too, in all of you and the power of collective energy and prayers.  So, I invite you to join me in a special call on Saturday morning at 9AM Pacific Time.  We will devote the Spiritual Coaching Call to a prayer circle for Japan where we will use the power of prayer, meditation and visioning to send our collective healing energy to Japan and to see a positive outcome in this situation.  We can also send our positive energy to Libya and the Middle East at this time of great turbulence and change.

#1- Here’s the link to Caroline Myss’ recent interview with host Lisa Garr of The Aware Show. It’s very interesting to hear her perspective and insights on the current world situation and, in particular, the people of the United States. Definitely food for thought…

#2- Here’s another technique (see yesterday’s post) from Rebbie at Yoga of Alignment for dealing with the fear and stress evoked by the current world situation. Here’s what Rebbie has to say…

“You can change the course of this world…

While the news is flooded with fear of nuclear disaster, *you* can overflow with clarity and vision for a world of beauty and harmony.

Today’s article offers a specific meditation to calm the nuclear panic within you and to move you toward a manifestation of peace and beauty.”

#3- Here’s a short video w/ Wayne Dyer and Bruce Lipton reminding us of the power of our beliefs to influence our health and the world around us…

#4- And here’s the latest astrological update from shamanic astrologer Tami Brunk on the full moon and other current cosmic events…

“We are nearing a 3-day period of incredible potency, from Saturday the 19 through Monday the 21.

Saturday the Full Moon at 29 Virgo is at perigee–the closest it has been to the Earth for 18 years. Sunday marks the Spring Equinox, and Monday Uranus conjoins with the Aries Sun.  

When we engage ceremonially in these events of such cosmological significance with clear intentions and from the heart, magic happens. We are communicating with the Universe–we recognize the sacred patterning of which we are a part and our intention is to dance joyfully with it. We are willing to show up–in our beauty and uniqueness–to co-create with Great Mystery.   

Ceremony need not be complex. The most magical moments in these next few days will be Saturday sunset and Sunday sunrise. In both instances we can tune into and experience the dynamic opposition of the Equinox Sun and Full Moon–rising and setting very close to the same time. 

Full Moon at 29 Virgo at 11:10 am MST Saturday On Saturday near noon we experience a Full Moon at 29 Virgo. Above all, Virgo investigates the sacred patterning of our Universe–the cycles and rhythms of the Earth and Cosmos.  Virgo provides us with a ceremonial attitude of reverence toward these patterns and a desire to align harmoniously with them. As we tune into the wisdom represented by the final degree of mastery of Virgo we can ask ourselves-what is my sacred work in service to, and in alignment, with the wellbeing of the living Earth? This is an especially potent time for ceremony, due to the Virgo influence.Sabian symbols give insight into the meaning behind each degree of a zodiac sign. The Sabian symbol for 29 Virgo is: After a crisis, a seeker of occult knowledge is reading an ancient scroll which illumines his mind. This past week, the entire planet and all of humanity has been feeling the reverberations of the crisis in Japan, and the vulnerability of the most modern societies in the face of Earth changes. Are we ready to seek guidance from an ancient form of knowledge–that of Earth consciousness itself?Lately when I send healing energy to Japan I also send prayers for the scientists and societal innovators whose work and intent is aligned with the wellbeing of the Earth. I ask that we might find new breakthroughs–technologies, sources of energy, and institutional systems to support the wellbeing and continued evolution of human consciousness aligned with Earth cycles and renewal. And I ask that we might be infused with collective reverence and deep appreciation for the Earth and all of its creatures.

Spring Equinox Seeking Balance

At 5:21 pm MST on Sunday the 20th, the Sun enters the sign of Aries, marking the exact point of the Equinox. This is the time of perfect balance between day and night. Following on the heels of the Full Moon, which is a moment of opposition between the Sun and Moon, we are invited to look at the places in our lives where we feel conflicted, or pulled in two, and to seek a harmonious balance.

Let’s look at the contrast between Virgo and Pisces, which was expressed at the Full Moon, as well as Aries and Libra-the opposite energies expressed with Sun, Uranus, Jupiter and Mercury all in Aries opposite Saturn and the Moon in the sign of Libra at the moment of Equinox. Jupiter and Saturn are approaching exact opposition of Aries and Libra–a big event indeed!–and will be exact on the 29th. We can certainly feel that dynamic building now.

Aries and Virgo both carry the energy of the loner, focused on their own individual path.  Aries is independent, dislikes being tied down or told what to do, and wants to plunge into action and experience without much reflection or concern for the feeling of others. Virgo is impersonal, with an absolute devotion to the sacred work, and not much patience for the messiness of flawed human relationships–which can feel like a distraction from the spiritual life.   

Libra and Pisces are more concerned with relationship, and the connections that “bind” us.

Libra wants to experience authentic, heartful connection with others, and really values community and bonding. There can sometimes be TOO much focus on what others want, to the degree that we lose sight of who we are, or what are personally aiming for. Pisces is immersed in the profound awareness that we truly are “All One,” and merges easily with others–feeling empathy and connection to everyone we meet. Sometimes, as with Libra, we can lose track of our own personal aims.

Finding Our Balance in the Modern World

SO many of us are feeling a painful confusion around what we want. Do we want to be alone, to do our own thing, to retreat, to push away the obligations of relationships? Or do we want to open our windows and doors and invite in more connections, more experience of community? Why is it that both options can feel so unsatisfying, so painful?  

So many of us feel a kind of schizophrenia at this time. On the one hand we long for loving, authentic connections with others. We feel so isolated, so disconnected, so disembodied.  For example, I feel so strongly that I want to be part of a movement to reknit communities, to re-establish connections between neighbors… and yet I already feel so overburdened by too many connections!

I think it is very important to have compassion for our current predicament. Never before as a species have we had this experience of complete inundation with the Collective–the images, stories, experiences, of our GYNORMOUS global family. We feel so linked to one another through the internet and other global systems of connection. This is a tremendous gift, an extraordinary opportunity.  It is an amazingly profound product of human evolution.

Yet sometimes it feels like a tremendous burden, and it can be exhausting. I have found it to be astonishingly easy to spend the majority of my waking hours communicating–through email, Facebook, cell phones, and face to face– yet somehow still feel incredibly isolated. From my body, from my partner, from my community, from the natural world, from my living soul.

I feel we are on a tremendous learning curve– AND that we have the assistance of so many divine helpers in this process. We are learning to SORT, at warp speed, through so many possibilities; to navigate clearly and with ease toward the life experiences, the communications, the relationships, and information that serve our most joyful, aligned with Spirit, soul purpose.  

I believe we can leave behind the stress, the overwhelm, and the isolation. We can embrace a more grounded, satisfying, healthy and loving way of connecting to our own hearts, to our communities, and to the Earth. To the degree that we can remember to touch into Source, which reconnects us to our intuitive and heart-led guidance system, we find our way more easily. When we get out of alignment, we rapidly become stuck, overwhelmed, and feel as though we are drowning.

Equinox Sun Conjunct Uranus

According to my teacher Cayelin Castell, it has been 335 years since Uranus has been conjunct the Sun so near the Spring Equinox. So this may indeed be the most significant Spring Equinox in our lifetime. What does this mean? Uranus is a change agent, in service to shifting humanity’s current “point of balance” to a completely new place. The way Uranus operates is through sudden, unexpected events that move us forward along our evolutionary path.  

I feel that Uranus holds the key to finding balance and ease within our current times. We might find ourselves in a state of paralysis, brought on by so much change, so quickly and at such a large scale, bombarding us from every direction. We CANNOT find a way out of our collective mess through the tried and true methods. We cannot look to the past for a way forward. We MUST leap, we MUST embrace the unknown, the never before experienced.

The most empowering way to engage with Uranus is to say–I give up. I trust the flow of the Universe, and I choose to flow WITH it, rather than against it. It is to say–I will seek a NEW path, a new way. I will believe in the possibility of miracles, of surprising and unexpected events, and insights and revelations that reveal, in a flash, a way forward that I had never suspected before.

We cannot waste our time looking for the sure thing, for the certain path, for security. We cannot waste our time looking to the past, clinging to old hurts and old stories as a form of comfort. We must open up, and create a space in our lives for Grace to enter, for Spirit to flood our awareness, to know that truly ANYTHING is possible.”–Tami Brunk

Dealing with fear & radiation, source for potassium iodide, help for Japan, astrological update and more

Hello Everyone,

I feel that this may be my most important post to date. With everything happening in the world right now it’s obvious that the evolutionary process has been cranked up to what would seem to be an overwhelming level. The way the media focuses on and presents current events and images serves to feed our fears and insecurities in a big way. It is a time to walk that fine line between being informed, but always being led by our inner guidance so that we are acting from a place of love, rather than re-acting out of fear. These are awesome and terrifying times, and Spirit is calling on us to step up to the plate and walk our talk. This can be a time of miracles or mayhem, depending on our state of consciousness and degree of mindfulness. If we ever needed to hold to the truth of who we really are and focus our thoughts and emotions on the highest and best we can imagine/envision, it’s NOW.

And so I am including a number of things in this post that I feel will inform, support and inspire whoever happens to read this during this accelerated time of change. I hope you find the following information and links useful.

#1- For those of you interested in strengthening and protecting your body during these changing times, Mike Adam’s at has put together information and products specifically designed to address current concerns of radiation, etc. He is also updating the information about the availability of certain products as often as possible. Go to:  Natural News estore

Also, I just heard from that they are one of the very few places to have potassium iodide in stock (most places are sold out)  and are running a special on the Now Foods brand of 30 mg/60 tabs (plus, right now you get free shipping on orders over $89 and under 3 lbs. in weight). Plus, I’ve read recently that up to 90% of the US population is deficient in iodine, so this might be a good supplement to have on hand, regardless of the world situation. In fact, many of the things David Wolfe recommends taking for radiation, such as chlorella, reishi mushrooms, kelp/seaweed, ashwaganda, cilantro, zeolites, fulvic acid, coconut, crystal salt, etc. are great for improving overall health, so whatever you decide to buy right now, let it be from a place of wanting to honor and support your body, and not from a place of fear. You could be taking the best supplements in the world, but if your thoughts and emotions are fear-based, then you may realize little benefit from your efforts, at least in my humble opinion. (Go to  Herbpro, and also Swanson, for great prices on health products.)

NOTE: Potassium iodide is not to be taken as a regular supplement, but used as a protective mechanism in the event of radiation exposure.

The Many Signs of Prediction

Tuesday, 15 March 2011 00:00 Risa D’Angeles

Many signs predicted the Japanese earthquakes. We must realize there could be more. The astrology—Uranus in Aries (all things news); the upcoming “super full moon”; Jupiter opposite Saturn; the solar flares, sun spots, the Ray 1 Shamballa Force. It’s predicted a mega-earthquake hitting Japan presages greater (earth) changes everywhere. Change always begins as destruction with simultaneous opportunities for new creations. The economic markets, affected, are falling. The Mideast crisis (revolution), Libya, gas prices, and now Japan’s (U.S. ally) catastrophic quakes/tsunami impact world economies—we are in the midst of an economic (Ray 3) reorientation. Uranus’ last entrance into Aries was the Great Depression. We must be prepared for an unstable future—prepared with knowledge and practicality (water and  food, etc.).

Saturday is St. Joseph’s Day, a feast day for all fathers. It’s also the “super full moon” solar festival (29 Pisces/Virgo). The New Group of World Servers, especially at this time, invites everyone to recite the Great Invocation, the Mantram of Direction for humanity. Spring arrives Sunday (World Astrology Day and Purim). Uranus remains in Aries for the next seven years. Transformation happens. (Read more at and Risa’s Esoteric Astrology FB.)

#4- Here’s a message from Rebbie at Yoga of Alignment about a simple technique that can help deal w/ all the fear people are feeling in the wake of what’s happening in the world. Here’s what she had to say…

“I just posted an article called “Energy Antidote to Fear Prompted by Watching Videos of Japan’s Tsunami.”

Use this meditation as often as needed to regain your stability in the face of this crisis.

Please forward this to anyone you think
will benefit.

With Love,

#5- And with perfect timing, Guy Finley has just released a new program that was recorded live and taken from his 5-day intensive workshop “Breaking Through the Fear Barrier” at the Omega Institute. It’s 7.5 hours (10 MP3 downloads) of material from the workshop and is only $14.95 for the next 14 days (Guy ALWAYS has great prices on his wonderful material–maybe because his Life of Learning Institute is a non-profit).

 Here are just a few of the important lessons covered in “Breaking Through the Fear Barrier” that will change your relationship with life:

  • The Secret to Ruling Over Any Fear
  • How to Use a Special Kind of Inner-Watchfulness to Discover the True You
  • Seven Words Guaranteed to End Any Stress, Doubt, or Worry
  • How to Release Yourself from the Past and Realize Freedom in the Now
  • Relax Into the Richness of Real Life

A fearful nature can only give itself more fear. But there is another nature you could be living from right now — a nature connected to a Life that is waiting to give you everything you want and need — and more than you even know to ask for.
You just have to break through the current misperceptions that have created what seems like an impenetrable barrier. “Breaking Through the Fear Barrier” will give you the courage and understanding to make it happen.
Stop being held back by inner voices of worry and doubt. Start living a vital, fulfilled, and fearless life.

#6- And along those same lines, my A Course in Miracles lesson for today was very helpful for me, especially in relation to all that’s happening in the world. The lesson is “I am under no law but God’s,” and here’s a link to an audio version..

#7 – And I got this message from leading EFTers Gary Williams, Dawson Church and David MacKay. If you’re into EFT, or even if you’re not, but want to be of assistance to the planet at this time, here’s their message…

“From all directions we are receiving news of the tragic events unfolding in Japan and many EFT groups are suggesting ways of helping including collective tapping. We would also suggest the importance of tapping on your own feelings of overwhelm, sadness, shock or any other feelings you may have as you witness the events in Japan. You do not need to create any complicated statements or procedures as the emotions will be alive in you as you tap and witness.

Once you have dealt with your own emotions, you will better be able to contribute to bringing harmony out of the chaos. You might tap with a strong intention of hearing positive news about the Daiichi nuclear power plant, and helping those most affected to come to terms with their fears and heartbreaks. We invite you to tap every hour on the hour until the crisis passes.

Our thoughts are with the Japanese people at this time.
All the best,

#8- And finally, I used this Abraham quote at the end of a previous post, but I feel it almost should be included on every one I do these days because the wisdom and perspective puts forth are so crucial right now, as we aspire to create the highest and best possible outcome for the world and it’s people…   

“When you are feeling the discomfort from seeing other people in a lackful or needy situation, and you decide to help them from your place of discomfort, no lasting value ever occurs, for two important reasons: first, you are not in alignment with the Energy of your Source, and so you have no real value to give; and second, your attention to their need only amplifies their need.

Of course, it is a wonderful thing to help others, but you must do it from your position of strength and alignment, which means you must be in alignment with their success as you offer assistance, and not in alignment with their problem.

When your awareness of their situation makes you uncomfortable and you offer help to make them feel better and to make yourself feel better, you are not in the Vortex and you are not helping. When you feel an inspired eagerness to offer something because you want to participate in their happy, successful process, your attention to their success harmonizes with the point of view of your Source; and the infinite resources of the Universe are at your disposal. And that does help.”— Abraham

I hope you find all this helpful, “Zippy”
