The Light Series #30: Feedbacks and Much More

Hello everyone

I've finally been able to resume working at the computer today after going through several problems with my disk drive but I now have a brand new one and hopefully it will work properly for several years to come. I'm trying to catch up with all the new emails (!...) and have prepared this compilation for you.

I'll then work on preparing the next Meditation Focus (to be issued later on tonight - so please check your emails some time before the usual Sunday meditation) and will do my best to resume the usual pace next week.

Love and Light to all of you ;-)

They're stimulating us to try to find answers within ourselves and maybe that's all they're here to do."

Dear Jean

For a number of years I have been receiving some of your emails and info via my friend Hanne Mascay in Denmark. Many of this info I in turn pass on to other friends globally as well. I very much value what you are doing for us all and for our Earth Mother, during these challenging global times.

I am also interested in what you mentioned in the Light Series #28 about possibly starting another list for people to talk to each other through 'Connecting our Visions' we can share globally about our experiences during (and after) Planetary Meditations. I think this has the potential to bring about a worldwide collective consciousness the "100th Monkey Thing".... would be fantastic if it happened :-)

Anyway Jean, thank you for all your hours of great work benefiting so many of us around the globe....especially those of us tucked away in small corners of it, like here in New Zealand.

Love and Peace

Quick note.

You ask for it. Could it be that those three are the only ones who has something to contribute? I
don't think so. It's just a matter of time and timing. Are you ready?

Please bear with us. I'm working on my contribution as I write this note to you now. Look for my
message on August 13th. It's an answer to your call. It may be much more than you ask for. Take your
time with it. Everything is in "divine order".

Subject: Not Giving Power to the World of Appearances
From: Barry Snyder <>

Dear Jean,

I watch you walking the fine edge, attempting to present the facts of the nearly incredible horrors of what we as humans create in the separated ego/personality identified state. On one hand it is true what we energize grows and thus we do not want to energize the fear, pain and distortion that is bubbling to the surface nearly everywhere these days. Yet, the shadow must be faced, brought to consciousness for it to be transformed. You handle dealing with this in a way that inspires me.

I would like to add a few thoughts of how I have come to work with this delicate balance. First of all, it is not what we focus on that is energized, but what we "deem" as our truth, our reality. All the distortion we see is but the result of the illusion of separation and denies our inherent divinity. Therefore it is only relatively real and ultimately based in illusion. So, it ultimately has no power, as Jesus Christ demonstrated when he said, "Satan, behind me", or stopped the stoning of the Magdalene with one spoken sentence, cast out demons etc.

Yet as he did, we cannot ignore "evil" for it is destroying life (God as imminent) and is the symptom and doorway to the resolution of our mass forgetting. It is the pain which confronting the shadow evokes that can shatter our separate ego and open our heart. What I witness in myself and so many others is the ease in which the "spiritual ego" can grasp a spiritual concept like, "What you focus on you energize" to avoid facing the realities of the human experience, and our interconnectedness to all beings on this planet.

I have found it easy to sit in bliss and look at it all and say it is illusion. Yet when I sit and read what is going on in the Middle East for example, see film footage etcetera, it once again shatters the subtle shields around my heart and evokes a deep sadness and grief for the suffering and destruction of life on this planet. And it is this process of facing the shadow that arouses deeper levels of embodied love, and the passion to serve through the remembrance that their pain and suffering is mine.

I am brought back to the reality that my brother and sister are in my keeping, and that I must keep turning to the One and asking how I might assist this planet in shifting into the New Heaven and New Earth that is unfolding in the very midst of this growing chaos.

Maybe the most powerful truth I have found is that when I can simultaneously stand in my divinity and hold the ultimate truth of the lack of power and reality of war, hatred, eco-destruction which is being perpetrated by sleeping souls, while also completely standing in my humanness and feel all the feelings that this evokes, something magic happens. My consciousness penetrates to the energetic depths of where these patterns of distortion lie within the collective human psyche for I am one with all of it.

By being willing to face it all, feel it all, go through the sadness, grief and horror, the hopelessness and continually give it up to God/One/All That Is, I form the bridge for spirit to fully penetrate it all, a conduit for transmutation. As I do this I can feel the shifts in my own bodies and chakras and that of the planet. Often as I do this I receive certain illuminations, or insights which as I acknowledge them are seeded into the collective unconscious as energetic seeds of transmutation destined to assist in the healing and transformation of whatever it is that is the issue.

At other times I am called to concrete physical actions. This I experience as the alchemy of the Christ consciousness, where we unify our human and spiritual natures. It is a delicate dance, and I find myself falling to one side or the other at times, and always there is a spiraling into greater and greater levels of realization of the totality of our destiny....... to know ourselves as the Christ, which is the state of being in which the human fully knows itself as God and God fully knows itself as human.

With love,

Barry Martin

Subject: Sacred Encounter

I used to think I knew what conversation is. Now I know it is a continent and we are only anchored off the shore; it is our soul. For a small glimpse of the ritual, go to:




Words enter and become such intimate and deep parts of us! We must command for them an intimate and deep respect. Otherwise the consciousness, the civilization that takes form around the spoken word will be distorted, shallow, and will have a weak immune system. The more respectful and healthy our relationship with words, the less the likelihood of our conversation spreading distress, distraction, and disease.

It is not difficult to understand how we have gotten carried away with the invention of the spoken word. Words are street signs in our minds, helping us to have a sense of location in the middle of infinity. Infinity can be unsettling without a 'rest room' sign, a street sign or two to help us find our way and to give us a sense of where we are at this particular moment.

It is not difficult to understand how we have gotten carried away with the invention of the spoken word, how we have become consumed by the illusion of power that it holds. Yet it seems it cannot be more urgent for us now to break the illusion. The domination of words has defined and tyrannized this age... and unless we pull in the reins on the runaway horses of our verbiage, these words...these great and dear allies of our hearts and minds, will likely become our destroyers.

The domination of word over Silence generates the mind of aggression, a mind perpetually in conflict, at war with itself, a mind that cannot organize itself into a house of peace because all of its closets and shelves are congested with weaponry, both subtle and blatant weaponry. Domination holds onto its place with weapons...and weapons need wars. We manufacture the weapons. The weapons manufacture the wars.

Our civilization is our collective utterance, our collective word, so the spirit of our word becomes the architecture of our society. Removing the spirit of domination from our word, the wounds of domination shift inside of us and we get to glimpse the architecture of peace.

This 'Ritual of Sacred Encounter' recognizes Silence as the host of every conversation. This ritual asks to give Silence equal time in every give-and-take, asks to make Silence a welcome member in every discussion. This ritual introduces the moment as our essential canvas, primed and ready to receive the paints of our lives.

This 'Ritual of Sacred Encounter' uses silent hand signals or gestures to equalize power between those who are more verbal and those who are less so. The gestures expand our attention in conversation away from an exclusive focus on what any one person has to say, to include the quality of what is taking place between us. They serve as a simple feedback system for the person who is speaking, and can help move an individual or group towards a more synergistic flow where individual creativity and collective process support each other.

I used to think I knew what conversation is. Now I know it is a continent and we are only anchored off the shore; it is our soul. I am happy to present the ritual to individuals and am especially interested in exploring it as a group dynamic for helping to create community.

Subject: "Blueprint" work at non-physical levels in DC this weekend


Today I leave for a very brief trip to Washington, DC. As you are well aware, we are at a very critical turning point - not only in the USA - but on the planet. A great deal hinges on decisions that will be made in high places over the next few days and weeks. If these are wise decisions, the Earth will move onto a track of smooth renewal. If these are unwise decisions, we may have a very rocky road ahead of us.

On Saturday and Sunday, August 17-18, I will be with three other individuals doing "blueprint" work at non-physical levels in DC. The focal point of this work will be the Washington Monument - the great obelisk which is one of the Washington landmarks. I am inviting you to be present with us in Spirit on those two days, visualizing this monument like a great acupuncture needle which will be channeling Love from the very heart of Divine Presence into this city, intoxicated with power.

We four are not the only ones who will be in the city and working at this level at this time. There will be others. We are at a critical juncture. There is an opportunity here for total transformation.... but there are other possibilities as well. In these days my greatest personal challenge is to stay out of judgment of the foolishness of our leaders. But all we can do is meditate upon, pray for, do ceremony and most importantly - personally embody Love as the only viable option for our collective future here on the planet.

This is what I would invite you to do this weekend in your heart as your time permits and as you are able. There isn't a specific time for a link up or meditation. Just hold the vision of the great obelisk of the Washington monument as a cosmic grounding point for Love & Transformation for the planet at this time - there in the heart of DC. Let us visualize what may seem impossible at this moment - that this city becomes the beacon of light and leadership for The New Earth - embodying the ideas of true Freedom, Justice, Equality & Transparency based on Love. As we saw the sudden fall of the Berlin wall and the transformation of the Soviet Union - we know that all things are possible.

Please be with us.....

F-16s Pursue Unknown Craft Over Region

By Steve Vogel
Washington Post Staff Writer
Saturday, July 27, 2002

For Renny Rogers, it was strange enough that military jets were flying low over his home in Waldorf in the middle of the night. It was what he thinks he saw when he headed outside to look early yesterday that floored him.

"It was this object, this light-blue object, traveling at a phenomenal rate of speed," Rogers said. "This Air Force jet was right behind it, chasing it, but the object was just leaving him in the dust. I told my neighbor, 'I think those jets are chasing a UFO.' "

Military officials confirm that two F-16 jets from Andrews Air Force Base were scrambled early yesterday after radar detected an unknown aircraft in area airspace. But they scoff at the idea that the jets were chasing a strange and speedy, blue unidentified flying object.

"We had a track of interest, so we sent up some aircraft," said Maj. Douglas Martin, a spokesman for the North American Aerospace Defense Command in Colorado, which has responsibility for defending U.S. airspace. "Everything was fine in the sky, so they returned home."

At the same time, military officials say they do not know just what the jets were chasing, because whatever it was disappeared. "There are any number of scenarios, but we don't know what it was," said Maj. Barry Venable, another spokesman for NORAD.

Radar detected a low, slow-flying aircraft about 1 a.m. yesterday, according to a military official. Controllers were unable to establish radio communication with the unidentified aircraft, and NORAD was notified. When the F-16s carrying air-to-air missiles were launched from Andrews, the unidentified aircraft's track faded from the radar, the military official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Pilots with the D.C. Air National Guard's 113th Air Wing, which flew the F-16s from Andrews, reported nothing out of the ordinary, NORAD officials said.

"It was a routine launch," said Lt. Col. Steve Chase, a senior officer with the wing, which keeps pilots and armed jets on 24-hour alert at Andrews to respond to incidents as part of an air defense system protecting Washington after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Rogers remains convinced that what he saw was not routine. "It looked like a shooting star with no trailing mist," he said. "I've never seen anything like it."


THIS BELOW TIES IN VERY WELL WITH THIS ABOVE ARTICLE AND SHEDS A NEW LIGHT ON IT - AND LIKE Paul Vigay <> WHO WROTE ABOUT ONE OF THE LATEST CROP FORMATIONS: "It looks too 'hoaxed' for my liking (an entirely subjective 'hunch' feeling), but it also reminds me of an alien which was depicted during the end credits of the original TV series "Star Trek" (the one with Captain Kirk etc)." YOU CAN VIEW IT AT -- I'M ALSO PUZZLED BY THE MENACING APPEARANCE OF THE E.T. DEPICTED IN THIS FIELD AND FIND IT STRANGE THAT IS WAS DONE DIAGONALLY WITH REGARD TO THE TRAM LINES - PERHAPS THIS IS SOME KIND OF WARNING?...

Subject: Comment on UFO sightings

Re recent E-Mail about a UFO report and declaration of planetry security. This is likely to happen again. I did not expect it so soon though. There is a prediction of this happening but building up to a much bigger scale. It may seem that we are being invaded. The media will be having a field day over it heightening everyones FEARS so we can be more easily controlled. It may seem like a real war with much destruction, but it will be organized by the ruling elite of this planet, like they manipulated many recent wars such as Sept 11th, Bosnia, Gulf War, WW2,etc. UFO invasion will be a huge CON. Star Wars technology and UFO technology (Area 51) are already in place. Please do NOT buy into this FEAR CON if it should happen. I say "IF" as time lines are collapsing as the vibrational rate of the planet continues to increase. The ruling elite know their time is running out - 30.12.2012 is the dawn of the new age: our ascention/dimensional shift. Who can control a planet of enlightened beings?

So as we get nearer 2012 the pressure to control us through FEARS will inevitably INCREASE, and
keep us in the dark. We are in the age of "1984" but everyone thinks it is 2002. This should prove to be one of our biggest tests in the near future. Some genuine "good guys" alien contacts are also predicted to happen soon, but may somehow get distorted. Remember, the media are the ruling elites
mouthpiece: lies; damned lies; half truths; and propaganda. Please deal with this as you see fit. It reinforces the importance of your work.

Love and light

Toyota has been getting a lot of kudos recently for its low-emissions hybrid vehicle, the Prius -- but the car company increased its carbon emissions in the U.S. during the 1990s more than any other major automaker in the country, according to a report released last week by Environmental Defense. The group said Toyota increased its CO2 emissions by a whopping 72 percent from 1990 to 2000, mainly because of the dramatic growth in the company's U.S. sales over the decade and its production of more and bigger SUVs and pickups. General Motors, the world's largest automaker, topped the Environmental Defense bad-guy list by spewing 6.7 million metric tons of CO2 into the atmosphere per year. Next were Ford (5.6 million tons) and DaimlerChrysler (4.1 million tons). If there's a silver lining, it's that Toyota plans to introduce more hybrid models into the U.S. market in January, possibly including a gas-electric SUV or minivan.

Subject: It's a sad day for Zimbabwe
Date: Sat, 10 Aug 2002

Dear Jean

I have for some time now lived for my quiet time when I have a chance to read all the info you so kindly put out for our enlightenment. I do so enjoy the fact that you are so readily prepared to take up the fight for the good of humanity. I therefore hope that u dont mind me putting my tuppence in, as it really saddens me that there appears to be none out there that is taking up the sad story of what is REALLY happening in Zimbabwe. If you are in anyway moved to speak out about this terrible issue please dont hesitate to contact me so that I can give u up to date information about the situation out there. It is truly a sad one as it is not only political but environmental too. People have no humans right because of the selfish wishes of one man Robert Mugabe to stay in power at the expense of the peoples of Zimbabwe. The country is being given away to Libya in payment for fuel. The white farmers who have for years maintained the economy and fed the nation are being forced of their land with not even the right to take their belongings with them. The labour they used to support are being left to fend for themselves with no help from the government as promised. The nation can no longer feed itself becuase of the selfishness of one man and the truth is not being told to the world. I have living with me a Mrs Maria Stevens who is the widow of the first white farmer murdered in Zimbabwe. And the truth about that murder still has not been published and his murderer hasnt even been brought to justice yet and there are five eye witnesses to the murder. He still roams around free terrorising the few remaining farmers.

It may not seem important but to us it is and our beautiful country is being ruined and pillaged. The forests cut down and the farm land left to rack and ruin.

Dont know if this subject interest u at all but it would be so good to have someone like u at least have a look into the situation for us. Thousands of Zimbabweans are now in exile having to start life again all around the world as it has become impossible to live in the country any longer. I have recently had to leave my homeland and translocate to England in order to educate my children.

With masses of love and thanks for your time.

From: "Jana Ray" <>

Dear Friends,

I received this notice from my Global Family network whose "purpose is to support the shift in global consciousness from separation and fear to unity and love so that each of us can more fully express our life purpose and join with others to co-create a peace-filled world."

May Peace Prevail on Earth!



Subject: Supporting our family in Israel
Date: Wed, Aug 14, 2002

I am writing to let you know about an extraordinary peace effort in Israel and to invite you to spiritually participate in this effort if you are so moved.

There will be a silent peace walk through the Galilee, from Haifa to Amirim, August 14-21. Participants are Arabs and Jews, women and men, young and old, who will walk silently during the days, single file, to express values of non-violence, the dignity of human beings and the sacredness of life. The route will take walkers through Jewish and Arab communities and villages. At night, participants will sleep at villages that have invited them, or sleep in a camp under the stars. Since the walk is a non-political activity that calls for non-violence, participants will not carry weapons or have armed guards with them.

The Walk is run by volunteers and supported by donations of the participants and others who wish to support it. The money is used for food, hiring vans to carry equipment, busses for a few hours to transport the group where it is not possible to cross by foot and other organizational expenses.

You, and others in your peace/spiritual networks are most welcome to participate with this very significant peacewalk in the following ways:

l) Meditate/pray with them before and during the peacewalk, Aug l4-2l

2) Send your blessings through donations and/or personal letters/blessings/poems/pictures/etc of support and mail them to the address below. The letters will be carried in baskets near the Walkers, so they can read them along the way and know they are being joined by kindred spirits all over the world.
