Head in the clouds - feet on the ground
How did you feel when you heard
about 9/11, the Tsunami tidal wave and the London bombings? Did you, like most
of us, get caught up in these dramatic events and react with pain, sadness,
shock or judgment? You've probably heard many times that there’s a higher
picture to life’s events. You may have even said this to other people. We do
that, don't we - teach others what we need to learn ourselves? If you viewed
these events with a detached spiritual perspective, then you may not need to
read further. But if not, perhaps you could remind yourself of one of the
deepest spiritual truths - there is always a higher picture to personal and
When you deny or let go of
your spiritual understanding, you can get swamped by heavy emotions. When we
believe that the third dimension is all that exists, we lower our energy to the
same level as the event or situation we are seeing. It is wonderful to be caring
and compassionate. The secret is to be spiritually compassionate rather than
emotionally compassionate. Spiritual compassion is a detached, higher and
profoundly deeper level of caring than can be experienced through our emotions.
It allows us to stay in a higher, lighter vibration that is infinitely more
effective. If we go into agreement with the third dimension reality, we aren't
effective at all. No use to anyone, you could say.
is a special time on Earth, with many of us awakening to the power of love. We
call this 'moving from the head to the heart.' Whether this happens suddenly or
gradually, every lesson or 'change of heart' on the journey brings us ever
closer to a wonderful peace and happiness. Gone is the struggle and effort that
once seemed so real and unavoidable - for we have discovered that these very
trials were leading us to an exciting new life. A life of true happiness and
contentment, with joy in our heart that bubbles over into a smile or laughter
for the slightest reason.
special time of Ascension is a long predicted evolutionary leap for Earth, where
society based on money and power will be replaced by one of harmony, peace and
love. For a planet or race of people to ascend, they need to become more aware of the natural order that exists in the
world. ‘Living in the flow’ refers to this natural divine order, which can
easily be observed in nature's four seasons. By living in the flow, we allow our
intuition - our inner teaching - to determine our actions, instead of being
guided by our thoughts or lower emotions. Many events on Earth are designed to
help us become more loving and ‘heart based’.
Being in our heart helps us become more intuitive.
one of us is intuitive. If you think you aren’t, it's time to discover the
truth. Start noticing every time you feel something is going to happen - and it
does. Strengthen this ability by saying to yourself, "Yes, I thought
they’d phone me" or “I had a feeling there was something wrong",
etc. This happens all the time, far more than many of us realise. Spiritually,
we know a lot more than we think we do. Sometimes we feel things, but because it
doesn’t make sense, we ignore it. Remember, the mind requires logic and
can’t always grasp that wonderful unseen instinct we all have. So if it feels
right inside, it may be time to trust your feelings. Gut feelings show you the
best way to approach any decision you could ever want to make. It will save you
lots of time and heartache - and a few headaches as well!
of us has a choice. We can keep learning in a society based on money and power
or be a co-creator of a society of peace and harmony. How do we choose peace and
harmony? Lighten up! Enjoy life! Let go of excess baggage, those often
unconscious memories of unpleasant events. Whether they are from this life
or a past life, our excess baggage, just like on an overseas flight, can be
expensive. It can slow our spiritual growth.
– from our higher perspective - we know exactly what to do. Here's how! Just
view any old traumatic experiences, emotions and thought patterns you have
stored away. Look at anything and everything that throws you off balance in
life. If you think you can't find these things, help is at hand – we are all
co-creators in this universe. And being a clever lot, we realised we needed a
fail-safe system of learning.
we set it up to make sure we could always discover what we need to change. Also,
as we didn’t want to make it tough on ourselves to learn, we decided that
messages would start gently and be little ones – so a gentle tap on the
shoulder instead of the house burning down would be enough for us to notice the
lesson we had to learn. An example?
A bus driver is a bit impatient with you and you feel a little annoyed. The wise
thing to do is to let go of the sense of feeling annoyed. Otherwise, you are
going to meet a lot more people who are impatient with you. If you don’t get
the lesson, you may end up marrying someone who is impatient with you all the
time. And that, though necessary, could be hell on Earth. You see, we attract
whatever it takes.
probably all heard of people who have had so much of a problem with a
relationship, they moved interstate or overseas. Then we hear they are involved
in another similar relationship, but even worse! Sooner or later, hopefully they
spot the lesson.
keep creating stronger and tougher incidents because we are determined to do
whatever it takes to make sure we let this old stuff go. We can attract some
incredibly painful situations! It’s hard to believe we do this. It seems
stupid, doesn’t it? Why attract something that causes so much pain? Well, we
do it because we want to learn. We want to move on to higher places. We want to
become wiser and more loving. We know it isn’t possible to move into higher
levels of light while we still have old dense energies hanging around us. So, we
do it for our highest good and our evolution.
When something ‘bad’
happens, our first inclination is to react. Then we usually examine the
situation and blame someone, even ourselves!
However, all we really need to do is notice our own reactions. At this stage, don’t
bother with the details of the external event and who or what caused it. You can
do that later when you are calmer. Just
let go of the fear, judgement or whatever it is. The amazing thing is that once
you let go of your reactions, the whole situation changes anyway. Try it. See for yourself! You can fully resolve a situation without doing any of
the things you may have first thought you’d have to do to sort it out. This
simple action of reviewing your thoughts can save you a lot of time and effort
– it gives you more time to spend on fun things.
though you are in pain and the very last thing you feel like saying is ‘This
is for my highest good’, that is exactly what you need to do. Here's a tip to
make it easier. To help release your reactions or unwanted emotions, pour light
through yourself. An article to show you how to easily and precisely release
your reactions can be found at http://www.lightascension.com/articles.html .
It's called ‘The greatest gift of love’. You can print it off - even at a
library or at work- and use it as a first aid manual.
We also attract fun and
joyful events to teach us things. Ah, I can hear the collective sigh! They can
help us see we can be happy, loving, peaceful and tolerant, both individually
and as a group. They show us that when we are in a strong and joyful state,
nothing negative can thrive. I recall being outside the church at Prince Andrew
and Sarah Ferguson’s wedding in London. The joy and friendliness throughout
the thousands present was really amazing. It was quite obvious that if anyone
had come into that group and tried to stir up hatred or said ‘Let’s start a
war’, everyone would have just laughed. But, in an atmosphere where fear has
been created, negative input is much more easily accepted.
Whether joyful or
devastating, in some way, all events help us to experience joy and to love or release
our fears, pain and buried emotions. Events such as the deaths of Princess Diana
and Mother Teresa, New York’s 9.11, the recent Asian Tsunami, the China and
London’s Olympics, world-wide Peace rallies against the Iraqi war, Live 8, the
July London bombing, the Schappele Corby trial in Bali, to name but a few, all
have a part to play in the overall Divine plan. There are always many reasons
for any event. Some of the higher reasons for these events are listed ahead.
Just a point to
mention. There are times when we get more benefit if we can’t see the higher
reason for something. Sometimes, it can help to just see the lower picture. For
example, suppose you had planned to learn how to become spiritually stronger
this lifetime. Prior to the incarnation, you arranged to marry and for your
spouse to leave you with two small children and very little money. You hope that
having to overcome these obstacles will help you grow stronger. But what if you
remembered in your current life, that you had both previously agreed to this. It
may not have the same impact. Actually, in most cases we don’t need to know
what the higher picture is. But it definitely helps us to remain aware
that a higher picture always exists.
Princess Diana’s death
released an incredible amount of buried emotion in millions of people across the
world. Reaching almost all nationalities; shock, horror, despair, sadness,
anger, frustration and other emotions were experienced and released by people.
At last it was OK for men to openly cry. And they did. Many of us saw those
wonderful big, tough labourers crying openly, as they placed flowers for Diana
at the palace gates.
The same day as
Diana’s funeral, the lovely Mother Teresa passed on, helping more emotion to
be released from other groups of people. In fact, Princess Diana, Mother Theresa
and Dodi Fayed made an agreement long ago to leave together in order to help
release huge waves of emotion across the planet. They succeeded.
I have heard people say
after the event that they wondered why they were so upset. The answer is that
this was a multi-dimensional event, and was intended to reach people through
Whether Diana was murdered
or not, as has been claimed by some, was irrelevant to the above goal. Her death
had to be sudden. This helped bring more emotions up. Many felt shock and
bewilderment. The quest to establish how she died, pushed by Dodi Fayed’s
father, has its own separate purpose. Looking at this allegation may help bring
further hidden issues to light, including the possibility that government
agencies can arrange for people to be killed.
that everything that is hidden on Earth is now coming to the surface to be
released, in preparation for Earth’s ascension. It may seem that many negative things are happening
in the world, but they have always been present. We just didn’t know about
them because they were hidden. Now that we see them, we can change them.
everything has a higher picture!
9.11 The World Trade Centre in New York
Seen from a higher level, this event was to bring people closer to
‘unconditional love’. With flights under threat, people around the world
were encouraged to stay where they were, absorb the full event and face the
truth instead of running away.
It is believed that
Atlantis was a technology-based society before its demise. That means people
were more concerned about technology than caring and love for people. Earth’s
society is similarly based. Perhaps we are being given opportunities to see this
imbalance in our society, to make sure we don’t go the same way as Atlantis.
You may remember
was the name given to the millennium bug that was going to cause our
computers to fail at midnight on 1st January 2000. That was an opportunity for
us to see that we have handed over a lot of power to computers and to the people
who control them. In spite of the predictions, the Y2K bug didn’t happen. It
didn’t need to. We all heard the message so we didn’t need the systems to
fail. But, did we really listen to the message? Perhaps not, for we then
received a bigger, stronger lesson in the form of 9.11.
The fact that 9.11
involved the World
Trade Centre, a major technology building, seems to be a clear sign.
Incidentally, all people involved in these incidents have agreed on some level
to be a part of that planetary lesson. The people who were not meant to die,
were somehow delayed in getting to work at the Trade Centre that day. The same
thing often happens with catastrophes like plane crashes or ships sinking -
there are often an unusually high number of last minute cancellations.
the 9.11 event offered us yet another lesson and an opportunity to change our
way of life. It was another chance to decide that our neighbours, both locally
and in other countries, suffering from natural disasters or economical and
tyrannical oppression, deserve more of our love than technology. The key here is
balance. The technology must balance with the humanities. When anything becomes
unbalanced, trouble is afoot.
With 9.11, the world changed overnight. In an instant, people had their attention pulled from buying the latest Pentium 2 computer or new mobile/cell phone. That day - millions of people moved from their head to their heart. Compassion, love and caring for people became the order of the day. It is always up to the individual as to how they respond. And, if they respond with the heart, whether they stay in the heart or need further lessons.
There was another aspect to 9.11. Many companies stored their technology programmes and back-up programmes in the World Trade Centre. Consequently, many future technology programmes were lost and had to be cancelled. In addition, billions of dollars were wiped off the stock exchange after this event. This may have had the effect, on many people with shares in companies, to consider being less absorbed with making money
United States of
America. Perhaps 9.11 helped pull America together. Maybe it assisted in
breaking down more racial barriers. I heard a story about a bus trip in New York
the next day. An elderly coloured lady didn’t have enough change for the bus
fare. Everyone in the bus leapt up to pay for her, regardless of status, sex,
age or colour. A small reflection of the love present in New York at the time.
We are rapidly moving to a time where this is the norm.
It may also have helped the American people to a greater understanding of the emotional impact such disasters have on a nation, giving them more empathy with the rest of the world. Disasters of this magnitude, and worse, occur on a daily basis in many countries. Up to that point, Americans possibly viewed world disasters as something separate from them. An earthquake in India (actually killing far many more people than on 9.11) was to a large degree, unreal.
9.11, many truths have been brought to the surface. All across the world, on
radio, TV, in newspaper articles, letters and news stories, journalists and
others, raised issues that were never discussed before. The truth about the
previous suffering in Afghanistan and other countries is suddenly being read
about and known. People are learning more about the world they have allowed to
happen. Shocking and painful as this is, it will ultimately bring the peace and
love we all desire. These are only
some of the positive aspects of such an event.
The Asian Tsunami
This was another opportunity for the people of Earth to move further
into their hearts, and to offer love and compassion to all those affected, regardless
of race or religion. Love poured forth to the devastated areas with huge
amounts of money and aid, given willingly and compassionately. Disasters like
this also provide opportunities to people who wish to die, perhaps feeling they
have fulfilled their role here.
The Peace Rallies against the Iraqi war in 2003
The display of people using their power of choice, gave us peace rallies in 600
cities. There were thousands more in smaller towns and prayers and meditations
involved further millions. This incredible desire for peace, compassion and
tolerance expressed itself across the world. Many millions joining in one
unified thought of compassion, saying 'We don't want innocent people to be
killed. There has to be another way'.
proposed Iraqi war was a divine opportunity for the people of this planet to
make a choice between love and compassion or intolerance and judgment. They
chose love and compassion. The fact that some governments ignored the people’s
wish was a separate issue and in no way lessens the wonderful outcome of the
higher divine purpose. This particular choice for compassion actually gave the
Earth a major leap in her ascension process.
China and the Olympics 2008
China has tended to be ruled by violence and
suppression. This will need to change if China is to be a part of the ascension
process. The Olympics give an opportunity for this to happen. Being watched by
the whole world may give it the necessary trigger to change. Key issues for
change are freedom of speech and access to information, especially on the
internet; persecution of opponents versus development of democracy; death
penalty and torture; and Tibet’s freedom and the relationship between the
Chinese mainland and Taiwan.
London and the Olympics 2012
Aside from the obvious goodwill and possible
financial benefits of this event, the announcement of the Olympics came at a
perfect time. London was celebrating the news and was in strong spirits at the
time the London bombing took place. Having the good news first, helped the
people of England maintain their strength as they handled the suddenness of the
bombings. 2012 is the correct time on the planet for the source of the Olympic
heart to be held in England.
Live 8 Bono, Richard Curtis and Bob Geldof
The whole event was on a much bigger divine scale than the picture we currently
see. It was another huge choice for love and compassion. A further bringing
together of nations caring for each other as brothers and sisters. More people
are now aware that some countries have dictatorial regimes and need change. Once
again we see people power at work and another brilliant display of what can be
achieved by just a few.
know, even one person with a divine intent can cause great things. A story from
Australia along these lines began with a humble soul called Arthur Stace born in
1884. Feeling a divine intent, Arthur, who couldn’t read or write, began
writing one word in beautiful copper plate writing in yellow chalk on the
footpaths of four major Australian cities. For 35 years, from 1932 to 1967, it
is estimated that Arthur wrote the word Eternity about 500,000 times. For many
years, it was not known who was writing ‘eternity’. When the Australian 2000
millennium committee began arranging the Sydney New Year’s Eve celebrations,
someone suggested they acknowledge his work and include the word in the
on 1st January, 2000 the word ‘Eternity’ was seen by over 1 billion people
as it blazoned across the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the world’s largest
fireworks display of the millennium event. Arthur has moved on, but his good
intent is forever imprinted on the souls of all the people who saw his humble
chalk word - and in those who captured the energy and the beauty of
‘Eternity’ in light entering the new millennium, a time destined for peace
Schapelle Corby trial in Bali (a case widely known of in Australia)
Corby, a 27-year-old Australian, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison in
Bali for bringing 4 kilos of hash (marijuana) into Bali. Incidentally, to
take hash from Australia, where it's expensive, into Bali, where it's a
lot cheaper, doesn't make a lot of sense. It apparently never happens and is a
first time for Balinese customs officers. Schappele
says she is innocent and that the hash must have been planted in her surfboard
bag. An Australian TV poll showed 98% of people in Australia agree with her.
it being such a high profile case, many people have had the chance to watch
Schappele during her long trial.
As a result of this case,
we have discovered there is no real closed circuit TV cameras covering airline
baggage handling in Australia. Our airline luggage can be tampered with, stolen
or things can be planted. It has now been proven that drugs are being trafficked
around Australia, being placed in airline luggage while being loaded onto
planes. Some Sydney baggage handlers have been charged with smuggling cocaine
inside passenger baggage on the same date Schappele’s bag passed through
Events like this also have
a wider picture. It has helped us discover that there are many other Australians
imprisoned in foreign countries. Some of those may be innocent. And how many
others are there around the world, locked up and forgotten?
show of people power has encouraged the Australian government to be more active
in helping Australians in trouble overseas. Because of this case, Australia has
requested a Prisoner Exchange Agreement to be arranged between Australia and
Indonesia. It will help bring home other forgotten prisoners.
Australian people have also learnt more about laws and justice in other
countries and the conditions in some foreign jails. We’ve heard that
corruption and bribes can be a way of life. All this helps people make choices.
It also brings greater wisdom when travelling abroad. Ultimately, this case
could bring about changes in many countries.
power has great impact. When we unite on issues that threaten our society and
freedom, we succeed. It may be hard to imagine it would all change if everyone
joined together and said, for example, ‘We won’t tolerate chemicals in our
food’ or ‘We don’t want a medicated or drugged society’ or ‘We won’t
put up with bad conditions in elderly people’s nursing homes.’ But it
actually would change!
The London bombings
The most devastating event can provide a great learning. As we so
often see, people tend to rally together in times of disaster. Such events often
bring people closer in love and compassion. The London bombing was an
We need to remember
that each of us make many agreements in any incarnation. Often these agreements are
purely to benefit those we love. For some people, mankind is whom they love.
Some people give their lives so that others may learn. This was the case with
lessons begin small. If ignored, they get bigger. So, you could say that bigger
events occur because the smaller ones have failed to teach that which must be
taught. This is how a planetary system works. This is how people choose to work
toward greater wisdom and unconditional love. It is the wish of all life to
evolve. Therefore, we create whatever is necessary to learn what we need to

for all life. Additionally, there are always other lessons.

came at the same time as the wonderful news that London had won the 2012 Olympic
games. Thus, people learned to cope with joy and pain
These things give us an
opportunity to rise above judgment and issues of nationality and race. It brings

Getting caught up
in a dense reality
Everything that has been
hidden on the planet, is now being brought to the surface. If we know something
exists, we can make a decision about it. Do we choose to have it stay? Will we
change it? Will we let it go? This is why many things are being exposed, in
every area imaginable. So, we are hearing about lots of unpleasant situations
that were previously unknown to us. This is very positive. It’s better to know
than not know! Nothing can be handled if we don’t know it exists.
by vested interests, governments and big business needs to be exposed. Nothing
can continue to remain hidden, not in our own life or worldwide. Much of the
data being revealed is true, but some is not – even some that comes from a
credible source. As with all things, we need to discern for ourselves, which is
are personally responsible for what they read or watch and how they react.
However, some people find it hard to remain detached from ‘negative’ news.

people, and magazines and websites who expose hidden agendas, could deliver this
information in such a way as to make sure they don’t leave any readers feeling
fearful, overwhelmed or powerless. We
understand that sometimes, when things need to be exposed, it may have to be
communicated strongly to get through to people. But there is always a positive
aspect and higher reason to everything. Perhaps authors and speakers who expose
negative and suppressive situations, could add more of this positive aspect.
This would help create a balance.
will be more effective if they are left feeling these situations are not too big
to handle. It doesn’t benefit anyone if the reader ends up in a negative
space. Someone who thinks lots of negative thoughts can attract beings from the
astral plane. They can play havoc with one’s life, by dumping their own heavy
emotions, often anger, on us. These emotions can swamp the individual and can be
a downward spiral for the person until it’s eventually sorted out.
When any of us have to explain something
that appears to be negative, perhaps we could check what positive input we can
add to make it work well. It is certainly possible to inform and encourage
people into effective action, without overwhelming them.
The higher picture
Hold strongly to the truth
that there is always a higher picture. It's one of the most profound
universal laws - and it never fails us.
We can't achieve much if
we get caught up in the dense energies of the limited picture shown to us by the
third dimension. It is wise to continually remind ourselves that there is always
more to any event than what can easily be seen. It is of great value to stay
centred and balanced and in a high vibrational space.
The second you choose to
see a situation as ‘bad’ and start making judgements about the rights and
wrongs of it all, you just threw your stable divine spiritual truth to the wind
and dived head first into the mire. You are saying to yourself, ‘Well, it’s
all I can see, so it’s all that exists. Everyone involved is a victim. They
are not responsible for creating the circumstances they are in’. As this
isn’t true, the energy that is triggered by the situation can’t transmute
(get lighter). Instead, it all gets heavier and you become less effective. Then,
you stop flowing light. You become sluggish. It becomes hard to be intuitive. In
that state, you can’t really help yourself or anyone else.
Even if you haven’t the faintest idea what the real
reason could be for an event, you know there absolutely has to be one. No matter
how horrendous the situation seems, there is a higher picture to everything.
Divine order does exist. If you can stay aligned to this pure truth, and don’t
get caught up in the three-dimensional
picture, you will win every time.
we maintain our spiritual perspective, it helps everyone. Our understanding and
vibration can have a profound effect on a very wide scale.
By not being caught up in
the lower emotional energy, you can help others remain calm. In every situation,
you always have a choice. You can opt for the lower picture and get upset, make
others wrong and stir up lots of negative energy. Or you can say ‘I choose to
live my life with truth at its highest level.’ Remember, if you cannot see the
inherent perfection in everything, you aren't looking widely enough.
really can live happily ever after, though it may sometimes seem almost
impossible. Often, we’ve just resolved a tough situation in our life and we
are feeling great, when, lo and behold, we are presented with another one,
perhaps even stronger.
wonderful life it isn’t a fairy tale. It exists.
Your heart can be full of love and amazing gratitude at the sheer beauty and
perfection of life. You can overflow with excitement at the simplest things.
There is such beauty and grace to life, if we only give ourselves a chance to
see it. You get there by living in the flow and being in your heart.
It is possible to achieve.
It’s in your hands.
Trust yourself, your
abilities and your gut instinct. No one knows better than you what is right for

all you do. Walk your talk.
Give yourself time for
peace and self-growth. Stop thinking all the time. You often don’t need to
think out the details. Live in the flow instead. Everything in divine order
still gets done. It really works if you only do the things that make your heart
sing. You don’t need to rush around and wear yourself out. Stop. Take the time
to be calm. Otherwise, you could dig yourself a deeper hole. Sit down somewhere
quiet. Take a few minutes to find the peace within. Let go of the stress. You
owe it to yourself. Move from your head to your heart. Find yourself and you
will find love.
4. Be discerning. Not everything is true. No matter how much it feeds your ego.
You always know in your heart what is true.
If you react to
something, let the reaction go. You could do it right now. Think about something
in your life that causes you to react. Let it go. Why wait for a stronger
lesson? Life was meant to be easy. As the song says 'Don't
Worry, Be Happy!'
6. Trust the process of life and its lessons. There is a higher divine reason
for everything, even if you can’t immediately see it.
Stay real to others.
People don’t accept what we say, if we are unreal in some way – e.g. wild
hair, weird name, conversation ‘way out’. Be balanced and centred.
Love yourself. In
truth, you are a beautiful being of light and laughter.
Let your heart love
