    Love,
    There is very definitely such a thing. I get it all the time.

    I can't keep up with this thread very well ...

    90% of the time I'm off sharing tools and concepts, I naturally gravitate towards the dark, thus I have to consciously come back to the energy that this thread represents. This thread provides that.

    And please don't get me wrong ... I gravitate to the dark to try to bring light -- this has been me my whole life, and without the re-affirmations from those people in dark places that tell me how I have helped them, I'd just be lost in that darkness myself. It's a fine, and tough line to walk. Most reasonably enlightened people have to keep themselves ground to stay real -- I need to ground myself in energy like this thread provides, so I have a chain to pull myself out of the depths with at times. I have gotten lost there many times, but oh! there are so many that just need that little push to get over the fence ... maybe just one extra tool provided to them. (It is very difficult to be able to relate to someone who is not on your level .. so something has to adapt)

    I hope to receive and contribute here a little more. Thank you all for being a good lighthouse for me! I am a focusing mechanism ... some times the range of focus is easy to forget.

    Well, I did my best to get rid of it. I really, really did. And I continue working on it to this minute. Sometimes, something really-really bothers me, and it is almost always concerning one of my girls.

    I took a bubble bath with lavender oil and cups of sea salt while I listened to beautiful chanting. I felt so much better. And, damn if it didn't hit me again. That darned teacher with her hatred and ...you know... the memory of that conversation with Em this morning just kept coming back.

    So, I tried talking to my friends, the higher ups. And it keeps bugging me still.

    I want this out of my system. I am not an angry person, you all know that. So this is truly an uncomfortable place for me, and it doesn't help anybody.

    I guess there is a possibility that I need to address this crap with the teacher, but I have to weigh that very carefully because dealing with teachers in a small town is completely different from dealing with them in the city. I could complicate things considerably and still not accomplish anything, perpetuating negativity. That's the opposite of what I would like to accomplish.

    I'm going to try ho'oponopono (sp?) tonight.

    Much Love,

    Today I ventured off into the Daily Hammer, I just did not have too much to complain about. I am forever grateful for all that I have in my life and try not to take anything for granted. Besides two threads make my head hurt.

    Just finished chicken burritos with fresh made salsa from the garden! Life is good, thankful to be alive. All is well!

    Good night sweet Villagers!

    Just divide your time. If you can divide a 24 hour day into three parts...8 hours work, 8 hours sleep, 8 hours play, then also you can divide your company time. Hang out with people you love, then you can be better equipped to do the service you feel called to do.
    Life is about rhythm. Alternating light and dark. I've said it before, and will say it again.
    Some things are worth repeating.

    Regarding partnerships, who's to say what is and what is not, is my opinion. IMO, to think, that in the given life that the given attachment is critical to all, is a potential problem, and to think that it is not, is a potential problem. I've gone around the corner of clearing the self, back to birth and beyond in this life.... thus in my case, it may have been an essential part of the game, this time around. Something I had to learn to let go of, as it was central to my issues from two lives back. The problem is in the translation between us here - the idea of Love being centric or inseparable to the given partnership that is either extant, or absent, depending on who is experiencing. Not fully fleshed out, but I hope one gets the idea.

    Despite my repeated requests it took me one month to get a particular appointment with some 'authorities'. Today I went there and was told, that I have to go elsewhere, which I intended and requested all along, but I was sent to this other place. Anyways, the guy I met only now got back to work after he broke his hand and he was genuinely intruiged by what I had to say. He expressed his sincere appreciation and it really seemed, that it made a difference for him. I told him about my work, the shifting momentum and how everyone can perceive and deal with subtle energies. I would not have met him under 'normal circumstances' or if I'd have gotten the appointment as I wanted to have it. It feels like this meeting today has been set up on higher levels. There are no mistakes in life. The only thing I'm sad about now is, that I didn't shake his hand, because of my old programming of being apprehensive with 'officials', they even got guidelines for everyone to read that say that you must not shake hands because it can spread diseases. But a touch can be so wholesome.

    Thank you, dear Swan. What a beautiful flower, and it even has a spirit living in it...which I nearly missed.
    But such is the nature of spirit; to see it one has to be discerning and alert.

    This gift can only be developed in a noisy setting....where there is more determination to get past the noise.
    Because without will and determination those higher qualities remain elsewhere...in others, but never the self.

    Level 11 takes you (1inmany) past judgement, so here is the universe serving up yet again the challenging life situation to illustrate the value of the given attunement. After next week, which is the power attunement, you go super saiyin, which looks something like this:



    It's my understing that the higher ups do all the leg work for the most high, especially way down in this world. Of course that isn't to say one hasn't the potential to access the gate to intelligent infinity and be one's own intervention in this reality.

    Yes, Marianne, it did help

    I feel so much better this morning. The anger is completely gone, but the irritation remains. Irritation is not as strong as anger, but it is still something I want to expel, work through I suppose so that the issue is settled not just muffled or lessened. I simply feel like it is what it is. I accept what it is. But it still rubs me the wrong way. I can't shake the feeling that what is behind her, the forces at work, are selfish and full of hate. And that rubs me the wrong way. Incense and candles will be lit today, and a prayer of peace.

    PL, that's a sobering thought. I hope I have the wisdom to know what to do with/as that ...um...warrior looking guy. Yesterday, for a while in the afternoon, I felt like he was busting out of my body. Like he was being born inside me and wanted to come out. I would say that's a scary thought, but scary is not the right word. Sobering is the closest I can get. Startling maybe.

    I just want to help whomever or whatever I can. I'm unsure how to do that as of this morning.

    And Carmody, I am trying to apply the thoughts you shared to my situation. From what I surmise, you are saying that who knows what has been arranged. It might be incorrect to assume that all situations come from predestined "missions" if you will. I'm trying to understand, and I'm pondering what you shared...

    Much love to our village,

    Level 11 takes you (1inmany) past judgement, so here is the universe serving up yet again the challenging life situation to illustrate the value of the given attunement. After next week, which is the power attunement, you go super saiyin, which looks something like this:



    It's my understing that the higher ups do all the leg work for the most high, especially way down in this world. Of course that isn't to say one hasn't the potential to access the gate to intelligent infinity and be one's own intervention in this reality.
    I share that understanding about the leg-work.
    They follow the promptings from above, not below.

    So if I'm down here and I need something, I go to the top, AKA God. God does not take orders from anyone, only pleas.
    Once God decides to grant a request, and when, then there is a chain of command.
    It's all rather orderly, the way it works.

    Yesterday I was thinking about sending the teacher some reiki energy, but I was afraid I could not separate intent....and it would give her a swift kick in the butt. haha

    I am beginning to understand what some of you meant when you said there have been times that you were scared that you might react...

    Learning so many things, have so many questions...

    Much Love,

    p.s. PL, do the "How-To" and "What NOT To Do" manuals come along with the power dude?

    Much love to our village,
    Dear 1inMany, I am glad to see you are managing to cool off a little. Irritation is much better than anger to be sure, but the school year has only just begun, and you are going to need to move on into a longer-term mode to deal with this situation. It is probably going to involve some form of patience.

    When my daughter started school over 20 years ago now, she had probably read more with her parents than some of the other kids have done to this day. She had a teacher, a country girl straight out of college, who told her to draw and colour in pictures whenever she’d finished her work, which was most of the time. By the end of the year the poor child was bored out of her mind, and still remembers it as having been a pretty awful experience.

    The normal procedure would be to try the child in the next class up for a while and see how it goes, which was done successfully with my son at a different school. But here, the head teacher would not hear of a system that had not worked for her own progeny. There was no alternative but to stick it out, and carry on as normal at home. Apart from the memories, there seem to have been no other side effects. My daughter later made some good schoolfriends she might otherwise not have had. She has done very well academically - not become an artist .

    Although you didn’t sound too happy with the idea, I think the attitude of “do-what-it-takes at school and we’ll talk it over at home” is probably going to be your best bet. Also you need to factor in the possible negative effect on the child and her friends’ attitude to her mother’s confrontational approach to school – not easy.

    School is all too often just a child-minding service, and not a very good one at that. And when they are teaching stuff, there is a great deal of involuntary indoctrination, even in subjects and at schools that might seem OK. A critical attitude is necessary at all times anyway.

    Best wishes to you and to your lovely daughters.

    Edit: just seen as epigraph to chapter 17, The Tesla-Hutchison Effect, of Judy Wood's Where did the towers go? :

    "I never let schooling interfere with my education. Mark Twain"
