Each week I receive an astrological report from Deborah. She’s not only a talented astrologer – but has a poetic gift for words that leaves a reader feeling as if they’ve just partaken of their favorite food, .
At the same time that I received her latest offering, the above prose by Diane Ackeman accompanied it. I was dwelling on this past year as most of us do at the beginning of a new year. My thoughts were both sad – tender – thankful – and most of all amazed at the tenacity of my fellow human beings. What awesome creatures we are!
On a nationwide level this country has been to Hell and back. It’s been devastated by Mother Nature at her worst. The Western shores have been turned into garbage dumps as debris from Japan’s own tragic storms continue to sweep ashore. It’s too hard to think of the amount of damage that has taken place for the sea-life in the path of all this destruction.
The eastern shores and its people are still reeling from Mother Nature’s wrath. Even as these people attempt to pick up the pieces of their lives she is hampering their efforts with more storms
Who knows what kind of future is in store for this Continent not to mention it’s inhabitants safety and well-being?
And last but far from been the least is Newtown’s appalling tragedy.Will we ever recover from the heart-wrenching events that took the lives of those innocent children in Connecticut? Of course not. We’ll continue to feel just as guilty as Judas must have felt for betraying Christ. Hopefully we won’t hang ourselves in our attempt to purge our guilt. That’s not what Christ’s sacrifice was all about. It was all about Forgiveness and Unconditional Love.
In spite of all these seemingly tragic events that 2012 has brought forth – have you noticed the tremendous amount of love and support for the ‘victims’ that has arisen? It’s snowballed in far greater measure than the events themselves.
On the beaches of Oregon there is an automatic annual event whereby masses of people gather along the sands to clean-up garbage left behind by careless visitors. Since this catastrophe from Japan has visited these shores,the clean-up efforts have doubled. Even more importantly folks have become more conscious of the wild-life and sea dwellers that have been affected and are attempting to do something about this sad situation.
From news accounts that I’ve been privy to see from the TV coverage, the same extraordinary kindness and immense caring is happening for the Sandy victims.
And – what about the aftermath of Newtown’s loss? Once again I will state my own philosophy that there are no such thing as ‘accidents.’
I would like to share with you a fact that I’ve gleaned from having spent twenty odd years ‘seeing’ the past lives of Human Beings. Until a few years past I made it a point of not looking at the former lives of children. My feeling was that these small Souls were still too close to their Maker to need to know what ‘lessons’ they were here to learn. But, there came a period of a few months whereby mothers came to me asking if I would ‘give a reading’ for their child. Finally I realized that I was being prompted to follow these requests.
During a span of about eighteen months a handful of children were brought to me. There ages ranged from twelve to fifteen. The first “past-life” of one of these children threw me back on my heels and the overwhelming sensation of being in contact with the most Loving Presence left me with overwhelming emotions that cannot be described. After this first child I found that the children that came after were all the same kind of Souls. They are special people with a very special purpose here on earth. These children had not returned to complete karmic lessons. They are far more evolved than we piddling humans are with our piddling problems.
These children have VOLUNTEERED to come here to help clean up this mess we’ve created on this planet. Their strength of Spirit is unspeakable. Recently the name Indigo Children has been banded around amidst the New Age culture. It doesn’t matter what ‘handle’ one places on such children. The human language doesn’t have words to describe them.I feel very humbly grateful for having been given a peek into the Souls of these children and it has given me renewed hope for the future of Humanity, because of their presence here.
Although my beliefs are no consolation to the families of those small Souls of the Connecticut massacre,I’m convinced that those children came here to play this ‘Role’ of their lifetime in order to help awaken Humanity to the meaning of Self Sacrifice instead of Self Serving. How nice it would be if our government could realize this Truth!
We’ve come through the supposed Mayan predictions as to the end of the world. Have we being given another chance to redeem ourselves? Can we make this coming year a joining of Body Mind and Spirit with our fellow man/woman instead of Me – Me- Me?
Have a Blessed New Year
