Turning Tide of History #11: Surrendering to the Universal Power of Love

Hello everyone

At this crucial juncture in our global history, what you are about to read may become instrumental in facilitating a most vitally important change of heart for you and all those who will accept to be touched by those thoughts: surrendering to the universal power of Love... and from this amazingly simple experience, opening to the infinite possibilities for global healing and co-created peace resulting from Being Who We Are!

Cherish and network...

"So now we know, we really know that a war with Iraq is, in my humble opinion, going to happen. And what do we do when we know something of massive dim light is occurring. We move into acceptance and surrender. And we step up to the higher octave of perception. We catapult into the Light with the deepest and most powerful actions of connecting to the Oneness of All of Us. We move freely and glowingly, without reservation, into expansive Light while in contemplation of this higher dimensional view point. It is simply time for those of higher awareness to guide by example, to lead by example, to love as examples of the higher consciousness we all hold within our Hearts. Yes, it is time to let the Heart lead. It is time to let the Heart surround the fear and love it away. All of it. We have every opportunity, Now more than ever, to effect the most amazing changes on this planet by opening our hearts even more and taking action in the Light (whatever your personal action may be). We have all been caught in the limbo of the war build up. Now, let us face with courage and Light our true missions here on our most incredibly wondrous Terra. We are bearers of Light. And Light always illuminates, transforms, transmutes, and transfigures that of dim light through the action of Love. I have made my choice. I say no more."

"Everyone is feeling the effects of this Storm upon our world. Our planet is continuing to rise in frequency. Consciousness is on the rise in humanity. Humanity is waking up in a myriad of ways. With so much change on the horizon it can be dizzying. Ascension symptoms are explosive. Dimensional overlays becoming common. Clearing happens now at a continual pace. This wind does not die down. It is not still on the outside. Stillness we must find within inside of ourselves. This wind is a Current Event that encompasses more than the Earth. It encompasses Life itself. All are going up in frequency. (...) Within this time we are changing into something extraordinary. Something wonderful is happening at every level now. Our cells are dancing and dangling between states. Life on Earth as we have known it passes from us like a dream. We are all waking up to various levels of awareness. It is a grand celebration celebrated at every level of Creation."

"Experience is not what happens to you; it is what you do with what happens to you."

"America has a Higher Destiny. As with generations past, our destiny can take us to places we have never been, or can only imagine. Places of peace. Places of plenty. Places of hope. Places of love. We have a right to live our ideals. That is our birthright. We should not trade it for the pretensions of empire. Nor for delusions of grandeur, nor for all the gold in Fort Knox, all the tea in China or all the oil in Iraq. America has a Higher Destiny."

- US Representative Dennis J. Kucinich -- ... And so it is for this entire world could we cheerfully add!

"It should be the highest ambition of every American to extend his views beyond himself, and to bear in mind that his conduct will not only affect himself, his country and his immediate posterity; but that its influence may be co-extensive with his world, and stamp political happiness or misery on ages yet unborn."

- George Washington

"Does God speak to us? Yes, since God is within us, He speaks to us. His voice is very soft, and we must learn to distinguish it among all the other voices within us asking to be heard. It can be compared to the melody of a flute in the midst of the clamour of tambourines and bass drums. The thunderous voice of the stomach which shouts when hungry is easy to hear and follow. But when a little voice says to you: 'Calm down... Don't get irritated... Learn to master yourself... Work ...' more often than not, you ignore it or suppress it. Patiently, with love, the voice repeats its advice, but if you are determined to silence it, it no longer insists. The voice of God is very powerful, but it is very weak within us if we do not want to listen."

- Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov

"There is an Indian Belief that everyone is in a house of four rooms: A physical, a mental, an emotional and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time, but unless we go into every room everyday, even if only to keep it aired, we are not complete."

- Rumer Godden in "House of Four Rooms"

"What if the thoughts you choose to dwell upon began immediately physically manifesting in your life? Considering the habitual thought patterns that you've cultivated recently, what sort of a heavenly or hellish world would you suddenly find yourself living in?"

"Envision the Earth's Magnificence from a vantage point in space completely permeated by the golden light of transformation and a blanket of light workers and spiritual entities holding hands

"Feeling sorry for initial reactions that in retrospect appear not as much of the light as we would want is natural but passed the first "oh I goofed" realization, I believe it is OK to absolve ourselves of any sense of wrongdoing and thus abstaint from any guilt trip because in the end that is how we all learn - through trial and error - and eventually we all come through these learning experiences to touch to a higher part of ourselves - only that for some people it may take forever (literally!) before they surrender to their higher divine self to REALIZE and see things from Its higher perspective."

When photon energy penetrates the earth on January 31, 3 am GMT, which is January 30, 10 pm New York time, this energy comes as raw energy. Thought-forms have not yet been assigned to it. Do you see the potential here? To create from this raw energy the thought-forms of PEACE and BALANCE helps to bolster PEACE and BALANCE on our planet. We are at a moment of great potential. 85% of the world is CRYING for Peace, and yet war clouds continue to gather. If you and you and you and you, at the moment of January 31, 3 am GMT, take the incoming raw energy to create PEACE and BALANCE with it, you add to the POTENTIAL for war clouds to fade. CLIP

Worldwide Proclamation of the Hello-Jupiter-Telepathic Message-Day

February 1, 2003:


On August 14, 2001, mankind was directly contacted by an extra-terrestrial civilisation:

Overnight there were two "crop circles" formations the size of football fields, in the wheat fields next to the radio-telescope in Chilbolton, England. They were clearly the answer to the message sent into space 28 years ago by the SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) organisation.

This answer gave us information about the DNA-code of a civilisation with a population of 12.7 billion, about their location in our universe and about the huge broadcasting instrument by means of which they have been beaming more and more artistic formations into our grain fields. Besides this they have sent us an astoundingly life-like point- matrix picture of an alien face.

The complex content of the alien answers and the artistic sophistication of the pictograms demonstrate clearly that these messages stem from a species of living beings which is friendly to us and which lives on the moons of Jupiter or at least has bases there.

The reason why ET is sending his answers into our grain fields is that their previous contacts with our governments - which have been kept secret up to now - have not been productive. The power elites are not interested in the possible - for the general population mainly positive - results of such contacts. Their own profit and power is more important to them than the general well-being of Earth-dwellers. For this reason ET is tactfully and gradually making more and more contacts with the general public on Earth. The SETI-organisation is still denying this, since the contact is not going through them in the expected way in radio-wave code.

Now that the whole ET message has been deciphered (and is published now), it is up to us who know the facts to awaken the citizens of Earth to take the initiative. It seems beyond doubt that dialogue with ET offers extensive opportunities for the further advancement of our own species.

Because the ethical code of our cosmic friends only allows them contact if there is also such a wish on the part of many Earth-dwellers, it is necessary for us to massively support and contribute to an invitation to them! For this purpose the crop circle researchers have agreed at a special conference on two parallel initiatives for contact:

First, contact with a complete message through numerous private radiotransmitters.

- Second, (possible) participation for all human Earth-dwellers in a telepathic mass-broadcast on February 1, 2003.

On this symbolically important day Jupiter and its moons are in nearest proximity to the Earth. The simple message: LET US BE FRIENDS!... Many thousands of participants will telepathically send their thoughts from many places around the globe in the direction to Jupiter - each full hour five minutes long (especially on midday) in each time zone! Of course this global action needs a lot of helpers who everywhere self-organized prepare the way for this wonderful attempt... First of all it needs multiple distribution of the facts about this activity, also the translation into many languages... Please inform all your friends about this cosmic opportunity. Thank you.

All further details will be published on this website

This proclamation can be downloaded below for printing, photocopy and distributing it. Thanks a lot. More detailed PDF-Infos will follow.

Dear Jean,

I thought you and your readers might be interested in the following excerpt from an article that I am writing. I was early spring cleaning and came across my notes. I felt it was timely since I was writing an article for Beyond Magazine about the TV Series, "Taken". It is also timely because of what is said about the times we are in, beginning NOW.

Also, I am being reminded of my role in getting people to understand that everything is connected. I find it interesting how things are sliced and diced. For instance, people that call themselves "metaphysical" want little to nothing to do with ETs, and UFO enthusiasts think little to nothing about metaphysics. Therefore, a part of my role is to have people understand that everything is metaphysics. The way we live, what we believe, our thoughts and actions are all tied with the same bow. Or if you prefer, all energy is a sphere. Everything that touches your reality is inside your sphere. What you choose to do with it, is another story.

The other reason that I chose to write about this particular channeling is because of the misleading information on the Greys. Like us and all other ET Groups, they are extremely diverse. However, I do not think most people associate metaphysics, Christ Consciousness, and the like with them. Also, as you will see by the article, I used to be in fear of them. But, now have only love and respect.

<excerpt from article>

"...But, it wasn't until I was much older and started to wake up consciously did I realize what was happening to me. A turning point in my life came while I was at a conference in New York City about six years ago. A friend insisted that I have a reading done by a psychic. I thought, "What the hell", but got increasingly anxious as the time neared for my session. I told her that I was afraid that Greys were going to be there, and she said, "Yes, they are already here". She looked around the hotel room where we were seated facing each other and nervously commented that she had never seen so many. I had a pen and paper on my lap and started diligently taking notes as she talked about my role with the Greys, and connections to Egypt and Mars. Then shortly after the reading began, her outline shape shifted into a male Grey. I was scared, but transfixed.

The Grey came fully forward and didn't waste any time. I was frozen in fear. He said, "You don't fear Christ. Why do you fear us?" I was taken off guard since I had never been religious and certainly didn't care for the Christian religion, let alone understanding the significance of the question. He continued with, "We can't do this without your help." Instantly, I knew what he meant. I knew I was reading his mind and vice versa. I couldn't take my eyes off of him. Out of the peripheral vision, I could see as many as 30-40 Greys in the room, on the bed, near the ceiling-everywhere. I sat motionless.

Out of nervousness but with my sense of humor, I said, "Nothing like a little weight on my shoulders," knowing that I had accepted my role with them. I clearly felt and saw a shift. He inwardly smiled, closed his eyes, and dropped his head just for a second. As he lifted his head slowly, opened his eyes and touched my hand, he had this to say:

"Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. The dice has not been thrown (inferring that it is not yet destined). Your military is attempting to destroy the Christ Consciousness grid. This is an attempt to stop our integration and all of our evolution. They have been detonating bombs and using electronic waves in key places on the planet. Their attempt is to destroy the grid and prevent further evolution. They will establish a military state, disarm citizens and declare martial law. Your government will target individuals using false claims, tax returns and IRS Agents. This has already begun."

I blurted out, "How can this be stopped?" Without skipping a beat he said, "Simple really. Assemble 144,000 people and with collective energy for one hour in one day hold light from your heart to strengthen the Christ Consciousness Grid. Form a light of steel. He then drew the symbol shown below, which interesting enough is the symbol of the state of New Mexico where I reside and is also where the heart chakra for the planet is located.

With or without the circle, all living forces of the Universe are drawing together. We have been giving this message to your government since the 1920s. However, people will die from their own fears. The government will create a false war using holographic images of spacecraft and aliens. They will create the illusion of saving human beings. In 2003 they will decide to move forward with this plan. There will be concentration camps, much like in Nazi Germany. Do not allow them to take you there."

He paused so long I thought he was finished. But, then he continued, "The time of the Ascended Masters is 2005-2008. All is perfect. Molecules are never separate. The concept is challenging to accept. But, in the end, I am you and you are me. In the end, I am the very government that wishes to destroy me. In the end, it is just a game of illusion directed to teach us love."

As you can imagine, I sat for a long time and let his words repeat over and over in my head. I quickly made a point to jot everything down that I missed. The psychic slowly came back into her body and I recall her saying something like, "Oh my God, that was powerful!" All I could muster was "Yes". Then managed to thank her, telling her that it changed my life and that I would always be grateful. I left feeling blown away.

Love & Light,

Samone Michaels

The Great Experiment III

Join James Twyman, Doreen Virtue and Gregg Braden in "Living and Praying Peace" on February 9. Please pass this email to everyone you know.

"I was once asked why I don't participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I'll be there."
Mother Teresa

On February 9 at noon New York time (9 AM Pacific, 5 PM London), millions of people around the world will focus their prayers of peace, sending a wave of healing energy to the governments of both the US and Iraq. Join James Twyman, Doreen Virtue and Gregg Braden in manifesting a peaceful conclusion to this standoff in the Middle East. The vigil will be called The Great Experiment III, following on other experiments in recent years. Technicians will be with James Twyman and a large group of Lightworkers in Jerusalem taking measurements to hopefully prove the effectiveness of this prayer technology. Please pass the word to everyone you know, and most of all, participate by adding your own energy. (James will be in Israel instead of Iraq because Jerusalem is the cradle of the three major mono-theistic religions, and is in many ways the most powerful vortex in the Middle East.)

Here's how you can help:

Mother Teresa once wrote a prayer, which is an adaptation of the Prayer of St. Francis, that clearly shows the path to peace.

"When I am hungry, give me someone that I can feed. And when I am thirsty, give me someone who needs a drink. When I'm cold, give me someone to keep warm. And when I grieve, give me someone to console."

So...if you want something the only way to truly have it is to give it to someone else. We are seeking the experience of oneness, for only then does the Peace of God flow into our lives. Therefore, we're asking you to join the millions of people who'll spend February 9th giving peace and compassion to everyone they meet. Let it be an active prayer you live all day long, enjoying your peaceful and compassionate actions and interactions with others. Go out of your way to bring smiles to others, and set the intention that the energy of this living prayer. It's that simple. Then at (time) on the same day, join us as we focus our prayers of peace, sending healing light to dissolve the hatred and suspicion that could lead to war. Some will think it naive and simplistic, but we believe that our loving actions are what will heal the world, and that our prayers of peace are the most powerful force in the Universe. This is the Spiritual Art of Peacemaking.

We are also gathering together 100,000 trained Emissaries of Peace to stand at the front line of this prayer vigil, activating an ancient technology of prayer at the same moment. These people have undergone several weeks of training through the Internet, and you are welcome to join them. If you would like to be part of this group, go to and click onto the registration button for the Spoonbenders class. This is a by donation or free course that should enable you to bend a spoon with your mind in three weeks, then apply the same technology to bending the whole world toward peace.

Doreen Virtue will be on the west lawn next to the steps of the State Capitol building in Sacramento, California, from 9 to 10 a.m., joining James and Gregg, as well as everyone around the world praying peace. If you'd like to physically join Doreen and the others for peaceful prayers, no reservation is necessary. Simply meet at the west lawn before 9 a.m., and bring something to sit on.

We believe that we have the power to create a world of peace rather than violence, but we need your help to make this real. Please pass this email to everyone you know. Together we can heal the planet and make the dream of peace a reality. We hope that this is only the beginning.

(The technology we are describing is a heart-centered approach, not related to projecting the thought or concept of peace. If you would like more information on this importance of this, please go to and click on the "Thoughts From Gregg" link.)

In Peace,
James Twyman

Global Renaissance Alliance:

"Forging a Real Peace"

By Marianne Williamson

Just as there is a so-called art of waging war, so there is an art of waging peace. "True peace," said Dr. King, "is not merely the absence of some negative force - tension, confusion, or war; it is the presence of some positive force - justice, good will and brotherhood."

We need to declare peace now, with as much serious effort and intention as that with which a nation declares war. Fear-based thinking is essentially a war mentality, and who among us does not live with fear. Our efforts to be spiritually healed, to find the love that sets us free, is our effort to become not only more peaceful ourselves but also instruments of peace in a war-torn world. Gandhi said, "We must be the change we want to see happen in the world."

Until a critical mass of Americans commits to the establishment of a nonviolent society, violence will continue to plague us... Ultimately, only a massive change of heart will change our societal direction in any serious way.

Love is more than a feeling; it is a choice, a commitment, a stand we take, or it is nothing. A stand for heart is the essence of the new, nonviolent revolution now brewing in America. We are looking within, where we are finding our true power. And we are committed to expressing our power in meaningful, effective ways.

It is time for us to repudiate America's culture of violence, not just by blaming others but by inventorying our own hearts. Some of us need to surrender our guns, some of us need to surrender our violent books and videos, and some of us need to surrender the unforgiveness we harbor and have harbored in our hearts for years.

Until we, the American people, fundamentally change, nothing is going to be fundamentally different. Our children will continue to kill and be killed. Our use of antidepressant drugs will continue to soar. Our water and food will essentially become poisoned. And our very freedom will become mere memory.

The American experiment, in that awful yet no longer impossible scenario, will have failed. Unless we choose otherwise, of course... and while there is still time.

The fabric of American society can only be rewoven one stitch at a time: one person forgiven, one child read to, one sick person prayed for, one elder given respect and made to feel needed, one prisoner rehabilitated, one mourner given comfort. These actions, when performed sincerely, emanate from spiritual ground that is itself the healing of our problems, as our separation from that ground of being has itself been our primary wound. Like the mythical lost continent of Atlantis, there is a ground now submerged beneath the subconscious waters, visible in ancient times perhaps but not visible now, set, to rise again, to reappear. Our initial tenderness, wonderment, and innocence have been suppressed and marginalized by the world we have built - the world of modern "progress." It is only when we fall in love, marry, give birth, grieve openly, or prepare to die that we dare to show our real face, to shine the light that glows within us. Our failure to be more authentically human is threatening to destroy the world.

In a country where our political right to live creatively is so awesomely assured, there is yet within most of us the feeling that a beautiful instrument is in some way going unplayed. There is a saying in the Jewish prayer book, "Sad is he who does not sing, and when he dies his music dies with him." Something goes unsung in most Americans today, though there is yet within each of us the urging of an internal conductor, exhorting and preparing us to sing.

While earthly resources are finite, spiritual ones are not. In all of us there is divine potential and the natural propensity to reach for it. In a nation of 266 million people, there is a stunning collection of unmined spiritual gold. As we each mature into a deeper understanding of our lives and why we're living them, that understanding itself becomes the womb of a new America. As each of us awakens to the preciousness of our individual right to make a difference in this world - and the cosmic momentum that will support us when we try - we become a powerful wave of resistance to the forces of fear. It is not just our capacity to say no to what we don't want that is our power to renew the world around us. It is our deeper power to say yes to our own creative abilities and yes to the light within others, which is the healing balm for the American soul. Each generation brings forth new life, physically and spiritually, or life will have to stop. Each of us might ask ourselves now, "Am I ready to bring forth new life, for myself, for my nation, for my world?"

When enough of us start asking deeper questions, then answers will miraculously appear... The difficulty and heartbreak of these questions are forcing us to our knees.

And that is exactly where we need to be.

She is 92 years old, petite, well poised, and proud.

She is fully dressed each morning by eight o'clock, with her hair fashionably coifed, and her makeup perfectly applied, in spite of the fact she is legally blind. Today she has moved to a nursing home.

Her husband of 70 years recently passed away, making this move necessary. After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, where I am employed, she smiled sweetly when told her room was ready.

As she maneuvered her walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of her tiny room, including the eyelet curtains that had been hung on her window. "I love it," she stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having just been presented with a new puppy.

"Mrs. Jones, you haven't seen the room...just wait," I said. Then she spoke these words that I will never forget: "That does not have anything to do with it," she gently replied. "Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not,does not depend on how the furniture is arranged. It is how I arrange my mind. I have already decided to love it. It is a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice.

I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or I can get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do work.

Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open, I will focus on the new day and all of the happy memories I have stored away...just for this time in my life. Old age is like a bank account.

You withdraw from what you have already put in.


I believe that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but WE are responsible for who we become.

I believe that no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

I believe that just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

I believe that true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.

I believe that it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I believe that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I believe that you can keep going, long after you can't.

I believe that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I believe that either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I believe that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

I believe that money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I believe that my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.

I believe that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down, will be the ones to help you get back up.

I believe that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I believe that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I believe that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I believe that no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.

I believe that just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other. And just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do.

I believe that you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

I believe that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I believe that your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you.

I believe that even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.

I believe that credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I believe that the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.
