THE LAW OF ONE: We are all One. When one is harmed, all are harmed. When one is helped, all are healed. Therefore, in the name of Who I AM, and I am One with All, I ask that only that which is the highest good of all concerned, happen here. I give thanks that this is done.

"If you woke up this morning, with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million who won't survive the week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture or the pangs of starvation, you are ahead of 20 million people around the world.

If you attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death, you are more blessed than almost three billion people in the world.

If you have food in your refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of this world.

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish somewhere, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.

If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful, you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.

If you can hold someone's hand, hug them, or even just touch them on the shoulder, you are blessed because you can offer God's healing touch.

If you can read this message, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read anything at all.

You are so blessed in ways you may never even know."

Dearest Jean,

Thanks for the beautiful meditation this week and for all that you do for us.

I hope you are well and happy. Many changes are on their way...

Here are my thoughts...

One of my teachers says, we all have a light seed and a dark seed within us. And when we use positive words and energy, are loving and hopeful and optimistic, we water the light seed, which then helps us to create more light and what we want of the light vibration.

When we see and talk about the negative, the horrors, all that is wrong in the world, what someone else is doing wrong, etc, we actually strengthen the dark seed and help create more of it. We tangle with it and it becomes tangled with us... and stays longer than it needs.

Which do we really want? Can we turn our heads away from the illusion of the dark seed so we can focus solely on the illusion of the light? Can we stop feeding the dark seed and let it wither away from lack of nourishment so that the light may grow more strongly and quickly without impediment? Can we bring our awareness keenly to those times we think we are acting in the light but in truth are watering that dark seed? Can we realize that fighting the dark seed only perpetuates it, whether we fight it with words or with bombs?
Let's create a world we want from the seed of light within each of us!

May all be given the gift of discernment to know the truth and the light and the good from other choices.

May all those with hidden intentions working within the top echelons of power be transformed to know the true Spirit of love within and begin to act according to that Spirit.

May all beings honor political and religious freedom for all, so that we may all live in peace and harmony.

May we welcome with open minds and hearts and arms, any brothers that are different than we, embracing that difference for the joy and the beauty of the Creation it represents, whether that difference is for religion, culture, ethnicity or species, looking to that time when our star brethren will make themselves known to us.

May those beings with clouded eyes, begin to see the truth; may those souls with covered souls begin to hear the truth.

May all of us who look to others as wrong or dark, look first within our own hearts and bring to the light and love our own inner darkness that we are seeing outside ourselves in another.

May the soul correct these perceptions with light and with love.

May all who believe in death, remember the truth of life eternal.

May all who feel alone love someone.

May all who can, help another.

May all who are captive bless their captors knowing release is near.

May all those perpetrating acts upon another being in the light of fulfilling karma, receive enough light and love within their own soul to act only in the greatest kindness and love honoring the freedom and integrity of all others.

May all changes occur smoothly and easily with great gentleness and love allowing each being to know its truth within their own hearts.

With forgiveness, we all let go of the past and create a new reality of peace, harmony and unconditional love for all.

By focusing continually on what we want to see, hear, and experience, we create this new reality now in light in love in peace and in freedom.

Blessings to everyone this day





What does 'living magically' mean?

* growing through joy rather than struggle

* listening to the whispers (that is, trusting your intuition - and acting upon the hidden 'messages' in your everyday life)

* taking total responsibility for your life (that is, no more blame or victimhood)

* learning to love and accept yourself (including your Shadow side) - since a loving relationship with self is the basis of good relationships with others

* fulfilling your higher purpose (making a positive difference on the planet, in your own unique and joyful way)

* recognising that we are all part of the same unbroken Whole (so all of our actions - even our thoughts, fears and desires - have impact)

* becoming aware - as we knew long ago - that everything is conscious

* living in peace and harmony with all beings

* slowing down, balancing your life and learning to live in the moment ('living in Soft Time')

* becoming an active partner (with humans, spirit and/or nature) in co-creating heaven on earth - while keeping your feet firmly on the ground!


We are living in times of great change. Our old ways of seeing the world are no longer working. Our old systems are rapidly collapsing. Our environmental crisis is growing daily.

Yet there are also countless signs of positive change. We are collectively waking up to a new paradigm - a new consciousness - which honours all beings in the sacred web of life, and which empowers us to become co-creators of heaven on earth. Countless people are shifting from a mindset based upon fear, control, struggle, manipulation, addiction and codependency to a new way-of-being based on love, partnership, balance, harmony and cooperation.

The Earth is now facing us with a stark choice: conscious evolution
or extinction.

The choice is ours!

Living Magically is for those who have chosen to 'wake up' - to grow and evolve into the new consciousness.


Here are some excerpts from Gill's books


Remember that everything is our friend, and send love to whatever you experience. If you feel fear, doubt, negativity, resentment or self-pity, send love to those thoughts and feelings, rather than rejecting or battling with them. Melt the thoughts and feelings in a warm embrace. Whatever comes up, send it love. (see Stepping Into The Magic, Ch.10 - Adventures in Consciousness)


Next time you are in a crowded place - perhaps a supermarket queue, busy shopping street, railway station or café - spend a few minutes looking around at the faces around you, seeing everyone here as part of you. Gaze at each person, accepting them totally as an aspect of yourself. See the God, the Light within each of them. Surround each person in white light, sending them your love. Allow yourself to merge with them all, experiencing your Oneness. Listen out for any 'better than' or 'less than' judgements that might pass through your mind, and remind yourself that in judging others, we judge ourselves. (see Living Magically, Ch.2:9 - Dance With the Angels)

Releasing the Past

Find or make an object which symbolises what you wish to leave behind: a photograph, a door-key, a love letter, a scarf. Go to a place in nature which feels sacred or powerful to you, taking the object, a trowel and a 'give-away' such as a crystal or silver coin. Sit and attune with Spirit, asking for help. Speaking from your heart (silently or aloud), tell this place what this object means to you, and why you wish to release what it symbolises - feeling gratitude for all you learnt or gained from it. Release any emotion attached to this object. Then bury the object in the Earth, along with the gift of your 'give-away'. Ask your unseen friends for help in releasing the past - and hold a vision of your future. As you walk away, give thanks and feel your new freedom! (See Stepping Into The Magic, Ch.4 - Dancing Your Dream Awake)

Magic Moments

Magic moments come from being fully present. You might be feeling the soft breeze on your face, smelling a baby's hair or eating a plum - but whatever you are doing, you're not lost in thoughts of the past or future, but fully alive in the here-and-now. Right now: let your thoughts slow down and drift past without grabbing hold of them, and bring yourself into this unique moment. What can you see, hear, feel or smell right now? How does your body feel? What is happening around you? Can you feel the magic? (From Pure Bliss, Ch.2: 24 - Slow Down and Live in the Moment)

Simplify your Life

[As we shift into Soft Time, we often want to simplify our lives.] If you feel an inner pull towards simplicity, grab pen and paper, and 'go within' - then ask your higher wisdom: 'What do I need to do to simplify my life?' Be open to the possibility of making big changes - such as moving to a smaller home, leaving the city, resigning from your job or going part-time, or throwing out your entire wardrobe. Or you might feel moved to take small, easy steps at first - such as not listening to the news, shopping less often, or limiting your wardrobe to two or three basic colours which suit you. Trust your heart - and take action! (See Pure Bliss, Ch.2:5 - Simplify Your Life)

'If we wish to dance with the angels, it is not necessary to sprout wings or sign on for harp lessons. We simply need to become ourselves - to express our uniqueness, realise our own potential, consciously create our own reality - and have fun doing so.…'

( from 'Living Magically')

Hello there! My central belief is that life is meant to be heaven on earth – and that if we follow our Dreams, and learn to ‘listen to the whispers’, we can grow through joy rather than struggle. This makes life far more purposeful and fulfilling – and hugely more fun!

I know from experience that Living Magically ideas and tools really work. I used to be a stressed-out and workaholic psychologist in the Health Service - always short of money, and unable to find a loving relationship. I had meditated daily since I was a teenager, and explored many different spiritualities – but something was missing from my life.

Then, at the age of 33, I had a mystical experience which changed my life. Suddenly I ‘knew’, rather than merely believed in, the mystical ideas I had read about for years. I resigned from the Health Service, and began to convert metaphysical ideas and mystical wisdom into practical, down-to-earth tools for everyday life. The result was my best-selling book ‘Living Magically’ (Piatkus, 1991) – and the birth of Living Magically workshops.

Now, at the age of 45, I am happily married with a young son, live in the heart of the English Lake District in a beautiful home surrounded by lakes and mountains – and have been doing the work of my Dreams for twelve years. I live and love what I teach. If I can transform my life - and make a difference in the world - so can you. Have fun!

With love and blessings,

Subject: RE: Veracity Series #9: A Reckless U.S. Administration is About to Meet Its Fate
Date: 5 Jul 2004

Hi Jean, I want to address the subject of Michael Moore’s movie, Fahrenheit 9/11. As you might expect, I am on many lists. I have accumulated volumes of data, much of it indicating the criminality of the Bush crew. Lately I have been receiving all kinds of info denigrating M. Moore as everything from a disinformation person to a dupe. I disagree.  

I think that Moore’s documentary was brilliant. There was no way he could have included all the charges Bush is guilty of. And, even if he could, it would have been a failure. We are up against a public mindset that shuns deep investigation and holds a belief in the inherent honesty of our President. They saw nothing in the mainstream news that disconfirmed this.

What was needed now was not the full indictment. What was needed now was something that could put a crack in the egg; something that would shake the public confidence in the gang of crooks in the White House. Moore’s film did just that. There were no distortions, no unsubstantiated claims. If anything he underplayed the facts; just enough that the average American viewer had to open their mind to take another look.

If we, the American people, are lucky Moore may have turned the tide. Perhaps more document producers will join in and do as good a job as Moore did. We can’t get enough of this kind of journalism given the dearth of real news reporting afforded by our media.

I hope Moore’s document reaches every complacent, closed minded person in my country. Perhaps we will find ourselves on the road to recovery as a democracy where all citizens look as closely as possible before casting their vote.



NOTE from Jean: So far, over 10 millions Americans have seen Fahrenheit 9/11.

Fahren-Hype 911: Moore's Movie Bigger On Promotion Than Cutting Edge Content By David Icke (6-30-4)

Dear Jean:

I think David Icke is a bit too critical of the Fahrenheit 9/11 movie. From what I have read in our Seattle opinion columns, the reaction is mixed.  Our country has been almost split in half in what it believes. For those that already lean in the liberal direction, this gives them some points of persuasion for their still sleeping friends and relatives. If Moore had tried to include the fact that 9/11 was a hoax on the American (and global) people, too many people would just walk out. He had to keep this one "down to Earth".

I have read some of Mr. Icke's books as well as Mr. Moore's "Stupid White Men". Mr. Icke goes way out there with the reptilian monsters, and everything is conspiracy. Even those that are mostly awake have problems getting their belief systems to accept some of these theories. We need firecrackers to wake people up, not nuclear bombs. I'm sure Mr. Moore has some other films to do in the future, and will probably include some of the more radical "conspiracy theories". Most of it isn't theory any more, but people just can't believe they've been hood-winked this bad.

My partner has seen many chemtrails, and seen the way they spread, etc., but is convinced they are ordinary contrails. He believes that airplane fuel is what caused the buildings to collapse. He also believes that Bush and his cronies are ruthless, and will stop at nothing. This is the foundation for changing many people's belief systems, we can add the ginger bread later.

Karen Revell


Thanks Karen for your comment with which I entirely agree. Moore would never have been able to get anyone to see his movie if he had stretched the envelope any more than that. Icke's viewpoint still has value because it reminds us that Moore barely scratched the surface. I saw this movie a couple days ago and although I was moved by the emotional response it is designed to elicit, I also concluded that it is, in a sense, a soft movie when you factor in all the more devious and outright criminal plots and actions we have been able to discover through the medium of the Internet. Some day the whole truth will have to be told to the larger public -- and hopefully it won't take another World War to get rid of these dangerous fanatics now at the helm of the most powerful war machine ever created on Earth... It is with the mostly silent consent of the vast majority of Americans -- in this case, and other humans elsewhere in every other instance where outright military power has been used for the sole benefit of a tiny cabal of perverted souls -- that the kind of ignominious actions depicted in Moore's movie have been made possible - and it only when a vast majority of Americans/humans will explicitly take away their consent that such crimes against humanity will cease. I know it is not an easy task to awaken people who have been misled and lied to for so long, people often choking under a life-depleting system designed to keep them brainwashed, enslaved, sedated and unaware of what is being done on their behalf to protect their unimaginably wasteful "way of life". Yet all those who have begun to awaken must now shoulder their share of responsibility to awaken others until We The People slumber no more and decide to take our common destiny into our gently soul-guided hands to make this world anew into a peaceful, just and sustainable future. Our task has been made significantly easier now with this magnificently revealing movie, and for that we ought to be eternally grateful to our brother Michael Moore.

With Love and appreciation for your comment ;-)

"Fahrenheit" On The Brain (July 7, 2004)
Who cares if Moore's flick is flawed, shameless propaganda? At least it makes America think (...) "Fahrenheit 9/11" is also shockingly stirring and thought-provoking, the first major film of its kind to ever smack down a sitting president and his heartless, hawk-filled administration so successfully, so clearly, so shamelessly. It is propaganda made fresh,inspired, explosive, irrefutable. And you know it's working. After all, when's the last time a documentary filmmaker became the target of the full force of the GOP spin machine? When's the last time anyone made any sort of attempt to seriously question, in public, fearlessly, unapologetically, in a mass media format, the blatantly oily warmongering of a current administration? When's the last time a documentary was the number one movie in the nation,not to mention one seriously calling into doubt the snide motives of our government's call to war, while the war was still underway? Never, that's when. CLIP

Subject: Growing good corn!
From: Phyllis>

There was a farmer who grew award-winning corn. Each year he entered his corn in the state fair where it won a blue ribbon. One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it.

The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors. "How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?" the reporter asked.

"Why sir," said the farmer, "didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn."

He is very much aware of the connectedness of life. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbor's corn also improves.

So it is in other dimensions. Those who choose to be at peace must help their neighbors to be at peace. Those who choose to live well must help others to live well, for the value of a life is measured by the lives it touches. And those who choose to be happy must help others to find happiness, for the welfare of each is bound up with the welfare of all.

The lesson for each of us is this: if we are to grow good corn, we must help our neighbors grow good corn.

"Great transformational energies and much personal activation is being experienced by all since The Harmonic Convergence in 1987 and the Harmonic Concordance in November 2003. Many new gateways of energy opened up to assist the lightworkers on Earth to process through past soul memories and open themselves to a greater height of awareness and service not only to the Universe but to themselves. Many more lightworkers are taking their place in the cosmic scheme of things and assisting in the spiritual awakening of the sleepers. As wars rage in many parts of the world the lightworkers understand that new life is always born from the chaos. Although there is a long way to go before peace will become an everyday reality, the individuals now awakened will take their place as the New World leaders by 2012."

Dear friends,

Below is one of the most inspiring stories I've ever read. It is taken from the book Chicken Soup for the Soul, which is filled with wonderfully inspirational stories, but this one is extra special. And best of all, it is true! Click on the link at the bottom of the story if you want to know more about how this little boy became the very first recipient of the now famous Make-A-Wish program.

The Littlest Firefighter

The 26-year-old mother stared down at her son who was dying of terminal leukemia. Although her heart was filled with sadness, she also had a strong feeling of determination. Like any parent she wanted her son to grow up and fulfill all his dreams. Now that was no longer possible. The leukemia would see to that.

But she still wanted her son's dreams to come true. She took her son's hand and asked, "Bopsy, did you ever think about what you wanted to be once you grew up? Did you ever dream and wish what you would do with your life?"

"Mommy, I always wanted to be a fireman when I grew up." Mom smiled back and said, "Let's see if we can make your wish come true."

Later that day she went to her local fire department in Phoenix, Arizona, where she met Fireman Bob, who had a heart as big as Phoenix. She explained her son's final wish and asked if it might be possible to give her six year old son a ride around the block on a fire engine. Fireman Bob said, "Look, we can do better than that. If you'll have your son ready at seven o'clock Wednesday morning, we'll make him an honorary fireman for the whole day. He can come down to the fire station, eat with us, go out on all the fire calls, the whole nine yards! "And if you'll give us his sizes, we'll get a real fire uniform for him, with a real fire hat -- not a toy one -- with the emblem of the Phoenix Fire Department on it, a yellow slicker like we wear and rubber boots. They're all manufactured right here in Phoenix, so we can get them fast."

Three days later Fireman Bob picked up Bopsy, dressed him in his fire uniform and escorted him from his hospital bed to the waiting hook and ladder truck. Bopsy got to sit on the back of the truck and help steer it back to the fire station. He was in heaven. There were three fire calls in Phoenix that day and Bopsy got to go out on all three calls. He rode in the different fire engines, the paramedic's van, and even the fire chief's car. He was also videotaped for the local news program. Having his dream come true, with all the love and attention that was lavished upon him, so deeply touched Bopsy that he lived three months longer than any doctor thought possible.

One night all of his vital signs began to drop dramatically and the head nurse, who believed in the hospice concept that no one should die alone, began to call the family members to the hospital. Then she remembered the day Bopsy had spent as a fireman, so she called the Fire Chief and asked if it would be possible to send a fireman in uniform to the hospital to be with Bopsy as he made his transition. The chief replied, "We can do better than that. We'll be there in five minutes. Will you please do me a favor? When you hear the sirens screaming and see the lights flashing, will you announce over the PA system that there is not a fire? It's just the fire department coming to see one of its finest members one more time. And will you open the window to his room?

About five minutes later a hook and ladder truck arrived at the hospital, extended its ladder up to Bopsy's third floor open window and five firefighters climbed up the ladder into Bopsy's room. With his mother's permission, they hugged him and held him and told him how much they loved him. With his dying breath, Bopsy looked up at the fire chief and said, "Chief, am I really a fireman now?" "Yes, Bopsy, you are a fireman now," the chief said. With those words, Bopsy smiled and closed his eyes one last time. He passed away later that evening.
