ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH
A) At the end of each year, I feng-shui my email list… it’s the perfect time to release and bring in the new. If you wish to receive notice of my newsletters and events, please respond to this email no later than December 28th. Write on the subject line, ‘Keep on list” and in the body your name because sometimes the emails don’t tell me who you are.
B) My Annual Solstice Celebration will be held at my home on Saturday, December 21st, Winter Solstice this year from 11-4 so mark your calendar. We will spend the day together in camaraderie with other ThetaHealers® of all levels in holiday celebration. There will be fun activities in preparation for the season including two door prizes. The cost is $50 for this event with all collected going to the scholarship fund. Through your past attendance, you have supported many students in participating in ThetaHealing workshops who would not otherwise be able to attend…thank you so much! Please RSVP by Tuesday, December 12th as space will be limited to the first 20 people. If you RSVP and cannot make it, please let me know at least two days ahead of time.
What to Bring and the Schedule of Events
From 11 AM to 1:15, there will be exercises to prepare us for releasing what we’d like to let go of.
1. On a piece of paper, bring a list of what you’ve accomplished or achieved this year, which are positive experiences.
2. Have another list of what you’d like to accomplish or achieve in the coming year.
3. Then have a list of the fears or ‘stucks’ that come up in achieving such goals. We will do some belief work so things can move more smoothly into 2014.
4. I will also do Creator’s teachings to support us in moving into this year, letting go and bringing in the new.
5. Drumming will be experienced as we journey to meet and converse with our guides or with an Ascended Master as extra support in your life. (not that Creator-of-All isn’t enough, but friends from the 4th and 5th Plane are very powerful and so much want to participate in our lives).
From 1:15 to 2:15, there will be a delicious, organic, healthy potluck and a white elephant gift exchange
1. Please bring organic, non-GMO’d food, and wheatless as we have those who are gluten-sensitve.
2. A white elephant gift exchange means letting go of something that you have around the house which you really don’t need or want, and you feel someone else would enjoy or appreciate it. It’s another symbolic gesture to let go of the old so the new can come in. Be mindful in your selection—make sure it isn’t toxic nor has toxic ingredients in it, and that it is non-gender specific. Please clear off the ghost imprint (energy) and charge it with a job (purpose).
From 2:15 to 4, more exercises and group and remote healings.
1. We’ll create a list of what we wish to release and how it served us or what it taught us in a group sharing. This is very intimate as we pass the talking stick around.
2. This will be followed by a manifestation exercise for the coming New Year so be clear of what you want to manifest. You can put as much as you want on the list but be aware you might get what you ask for so clarity is important
3. Also bring in names of people who want healings. We will do a group remote healing that will include us as well.
C) Introduction to Relational Love: Healing through ThetaHealing from Self to Others
Dr. Lisa Cooney and myself with be giving an Introduction to ThetaHealing using the theme of Relational Love on January 7th in the evening. This is a tentative date and it will be in Marin or Sonoma county. Venue to be announced. Stay tuned.

BLOG FOR THE SOUL
November was quite a month. Throughout this last three month period, we had opportunities to make new spiritual choices. We were given plenty of opportunities to heal some long-lasting, deep, unhealthy behaviors and attitudes. We might have even been called upon to act in a new way to clear an old recurring theme in our lives. We are learning to act differently to situations and break the cycles of dysfunction. Between the finishing of the Mercury Retrograde, an eclipse, a Uranus square Pluto (pervasive energies of revolutionary transformation which lead us into unfamiliar territory and helps reshape ideas….watch for history making events), six volcanoes around the Ring of Fire going off all within a week, Comet Ison, a new banking law that allows these institutions to use depositors' money if their next scheme falls through…well, one wonders what are the patterns of all these events that are moving us forward somehow.
So December’s theme is a continuation, along with Saturn in Scorpio where there will be deep inspection of core/foundational beliefs and changes will occur from spirituality to government foundations. Our personal beliefs will be challenged (obviously this happens a great deal to most people but this seems like a real ‘push’ energy.) This change and possibly unsettled feelings will continue through the end of 2014.
As we approach the end of the year, how are we going to work with these challenges? What do we want to do to recreate ourselves into what we want to really be? How are we going to really do it differently than we have before? We all want peace and a new structure for humanity but what do we need to let go and add to make the changes?
I had an interesting conversation on FB with an older woman who has been politically active for a long time supporting peace and freedom. We have different ideas on what it will take to bring about peace, but her heart is truly about change for the betterment of humanity.
I met her years ago in a 12 Step Program. At the time, we were working in clearing our childhood issues. How we continued to heal from these old wounds has showed me that everyone has a path, but not all are fully committed to keep it accountable in being conscious of continually clearing themselves.
What occurred was that there had been a local incident that made national news, where a 13 year old Hispanic boy was killed by police for not acting fast enough in putting down his toy rifle. He was basically shouted at to put it down and then 7 bullets went into him. Definitely tragic, and the community really rallied for justice. Yes, the days of playing cowboys or pirates for some children is now a deadly game. Not that I agree with supporting children with mercenary playtime as I never let my children have such toys, but the boys would find sticks in the woods and act out this energy. And when I’ve done Inner child work, I’ve taken a plastic baseball bat and pounded my pillows…we need outlets that are safe. But what is safe these days in the outer world needs a great deal of discernment.
This woman gave encouraging remarks for those who had come to support the deceased child’s family and community. For those who had felt that he should not have had a toy rifle out in public, her words were, “Shame on all of you who keep talking about the toy gun and parents should, where are you for your children to make sure this does not happen to them?” Listening to people in how I do, being aware of patterns and beliefs, what I heard was a great deal of grief, frustration, and anger that though it appeared from the present, wasn’t fully. There was an obvious projection of these feelings onto others she disagreed with and shaming was the means to do that.
Another person mentioned, “Don’t know what went down but shaming is never a good thing.” This upset the poster asking what words would she use if this happened to her child.
I decided to respond because it was an opportunity to see how I could make a change in the energy. I attempted to show that by shaming others, it would cause a more defensive position. I took a risk in sharing this because I feel that words are energy and how we express them towards others makes or breaks a situation, engages or disperses conflict, leads to understanding or creates more of the same misunderstandings. If she wanted peace and justice, which is how she responded to what I said “The ones I am ashamed of seek to hide the truth and not take responsibility for their action. Your energy and belief can overcome any error I may be committing, but I stand strong in this opinion and thank you for sharing,” then her expression of that didn’t come through. I wondered how is her expression different than the actions that occurred? Yes, she wasn’t killing anyone. But how does shaming others help to pull the community together peacefully? I had wondered if she had heard of Marshall Rosenberg who helped warring areas of the world find peace through hearing each others’ needs and coming to a resolution without blaming. She would not respond to that…said she was too tired.
This was not the first time I have heard her write this way on other topics, asking questions or making comments to get people to agree with her or make them wrong. In dysfunctional households, this is a very common pattern of emotional abuse as it’s a set-up…agree and we’re fine and I’m right; disagree and you’re wrong, bad, shameful etc.
I learned that again, when people are in trigger and are projecting, heartfelt comments are not heard, and all that was wanted was a bat to hit a pillow publically. That does not lead to peace and justice, but a cry for help and a way to vent. Each has its appropriate time and place if its done mindfully. If we are angry at the system, we need to look within ourselves in where it’s being reflected. That is why it is so very important to clear childhood patterns and make peace with our own Inner child. How can we ask for a new future if we are still warring with our past family dynamics, and our Inner child is there alone to fend for his/herself? It starts on the inner to make the change.
At New Years, many sing "Auld Lang Syne" It means "times gone by.” Perhaps we can all make a conscious decision to allow those times gone by to rest in true peace as we continue to clear our issues … “we'll tak a cup o' kindness yet, for auld lang syne.” It’s the kindness that humanity needs to learn.
Wishing all of you a peaceful holiday season and New Year that brings you back to your heart.
TREE, PLANT and ANIMAL COMMUNICATIONS
Trees Communicate With One Another, Connected by Fungi
University of British Columbia professor Suzanne Simard explains how "trees in a forest ecosystem are interconnected with the largest, oldest 'mother trees' serving as hubs. http://www.treehugger.com/natural-sciences/trees-communicate-one-another-connected-fungi-video.html

This is an amazing, beautiful trailer. http://www.nhuafrica.com/license-acquisition/one-off-specials/animal-communicator/ Anna Breytenbach has dedicated her life to what she calls interspecies communication. She sends detailed messages to animals through pictures and thoughts. She then receives messages of remarkable clarity back from the animals. Full feature
India's elephant girl takes on the herds
Fourteen-year old Nirmala Toppo has become something of a minor celebrity in the eastern Indian state of Orissa. In June, panic gripped the industrial city of Rourkela one night when a herd of wild elephants entered residential areas from dense forests nearby. Nirmala says she talks to the herd in her local tribal dialect - Mundaari - and persuades the animals to "return to where they belong". "First I pray and then talk to the herd. They understand what I say. I tell them this is not your home. You should return where you belong," says Nirmala who is a Roman Catholic. Her mother, she says, was killed by wild elephants and that was when she decided to learn the technique to drive them away. In her work, she is assisted by her father and a group of boys from her village.
Quantum physics proves that there IS an afterlife, claims scientist
Professor Robert Lanza claims the theory of biocentrism teaches that death as we know it is an illusion created by our consciousness. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2503370/Quantum-physics-proves-IS-afterlife-claims-scientist.html
Black holes are 'portals to other universes,' according to new quantum results
New calculations by quantum physicists now suggest that the stargate idea might actually be the better theory. According to the startling new results, black holes do not culminate in a singularity. Rather, they represent "portals to other universes," reports New Scientist. This new theory is based on a concept known as 'loop quantum gravity' (or LQG). It was first formulated as a way of merging standard quantum mechanics and standard general relativity, in order to remedy incompatibilities between the two fields. Basically, LQG proposes that spacetime is granular, or atomic, in nature; It is made up of miniscule, indivisible chunks about the same size as the Planck length.
Anti-Gravity Ball Opens New Dimensions
MIT media lab created a metal ball which is capable of doing some extraordinary feats while being in anti gravity mode. This round shiny metal ball has been named as ZeroN and it has indeed put a great significance in manipulating technologies in a more advanced way. The ball can be controlled via computer and by hands as well, to be more precise it lets you control the communication between computer and human via physical interference. http://awescience.com/2013/11/21/anti-gravity-ball-opens-new-dimensions/

Sensitive to gluten? Traditional sourdough offers a unique solution to bread woes
A European study of 17 celiac patients who consumed sourdough bread had an intriguing outcome. When the volunteers ingested a specialized sourdough containing lactobacilli culture, none of the participants exhibited any negative effects of intestinal permeability. The bread was made with 30 percent wheat flour and a combination of oat, millet and buckwheat flours. The researchers concluded, "These results showed that a bread biotechnology that uses selected lactobacilli, nontoxic flours, and a long fermentation time is a novel tool for decreasing the level of gluten intolerance in humans."

Thorium-Fueled Automobile Engine Needs Refueling Once a Century
Laser Power Systems (LPS) from Connecticut, USA, is developing a new method of automotive propulsion with one of the most dense materials known in nature: thorium. Because thorium is so dense it has the potential to produce tremendous amounts of heat. The company has been experimenting with small bits of thorium, creating a laser that heats water, produces steam and powers a mini turbine http://www.industrytap.com/thorium-fueled-automobile-engine-needs-refueling-once-a-century/15649
