Only when I learn to be kind to myself,
can I learn to be kind to others.
And once I have learnt what it is like to be kind to others,
Only then can I know kindness and respect for the Earth.
THE CATASTROPHES OF MARCH
Driving through the black barren devastation of a fire that recently ravaged a large part of the World Heritage Biosphere close to where I live, I was yet again struck by the enormity of the earth changes that are happening to us all in March.
Many people say that they felt physical symptoms days before the heart breaking earth quake in Japan. So soon after the quakes in New Zealand, the floods in Australia!
Many knowing that this may only the beginning of many devastating changes that are still waiting to happen.
As I watched the news about the earthquake and also the nuclear breakdowns, someone compared the enormity of what happened in Japan to that of the events of 9/11.
In a way it is totally true –
We are living in sobering times. Times when the unthinkable is no longer unthinkable.
SO WHAT IS THERE TO LEARN FROM THIS?
What lingers in my mind, is what are we all supposed to learn from this?
And what I came to, was that by understanding a wider perspective on all the suffering and chaos, it is giving us an opportunity to become kinder to ourselves and others and with that also more aware of what how we need to be kind and respectful to the Earth.
The Inca Shamanic tradition talks about the concept of HUCHA- they call that the heavy energy that is created by humans- all our suppressed anger and rage, our fears that we have not dealt with properly, our insecurities that we play out each day, stay unprocessed and become heavy, solid energy that become stuck in the Earth. Add to that our unwise and greedy decisions to dominate the Earth, building structures that destroy her, using her natural resources relentlessly until She is barren and dry. All these dense energies accumulate and accumulate, and slowly but surely they become bigger and bigger. Like a huge block, they stop the energy of the Earth from flowing and at some stage- it may be days, years, or even centuries later, it reaches a critical point when the only way She is able to re-balance and release the burden, is through huge catastrophic earth changes such as earth quakes, volcanic eruptions, floods.
It is as if she needs to shake off these huge burdens of “unkindness” we put on her knowingly and unknowingly.
There will always be huge earth changes because that is part of the natural cycles and evolution of the Earth, but what we do as humans, is to help make them happen with unnecessary devastating intensity.
THE LOVE VIBRATION
Many think of unconditional love and living from the Heart as a concept, maybe even a religious doctrine, something that everyone “should” maybe do to be a “good” person.
Yet love is nothing of that. It is a feeling, a very high vibration.
In fact, it is the highest vibration on our planet and the power of Love, the feeling of that energy, is the MOST IMPORTANT THING FOR US TO REMEMBER AT THIS TIME.
Whenever you feel the energy of unconditional love you are completely safe. You cannot be harmed. It does not matter where you are. You will be in a “space” that is completely free from anything that is heavy and resonates with fear. You will be protected, no matter what is happening around you.
And so- at this time of challenge, try to stay in your heart. Try to think positively about yourself, everyone else (they are only trying their best) and the Earth and her children, the plants and the animals. Try to be kind to yourself, give yourself a break, take time to give yourself that kindness and unconditional love that you never really bothered to focus on and also to consciously give to others.
When you look at the news, imagine a positive outcome, see the good things that also come from tragedy, focus on those instead of the old way that just makes you feel exhausted and tired.
We are living in an accelerated spiral that is due to stabilise at the end of 2012- it is a rough ride for many, but we can make it through the tunnel, we just need to remember how much darkness can be put out- at once! - by the light of a single candle flame.
Be good to your neighbour. Get to know them, you may need them someday- very soon! Be alive to possibilities, of how to cope without, of becoming more self sufficient in your daily life and routines, use your creativity to use what you have, it is all part of the bigger plan.
You are a living part of it.
And don’t forget!
You are here for a reason.
With blessings of Love

MATTERS OF EARTH CONCERN
Some perspectives about Japan:
From someone in Japan (thanks to Patricia and Camelia for sending this)
Note: This is shared by Anne, from Sendai, Japan where she has lived for the past decade teaching English. Very moving!!
Hello My Lovely Family and Friends,
A letter from Sendai
Things here in Sendai have been rather surreal. But I am very blessed to have wonderful friends who are helping me a lot. Since my shack is even more worthy of that name, I am now staying at a friend's home.
We share supplies like water, food and a kerosene heater. We sleep lined up in one room, eat by candlelight, share stories. It is warm, friendly, and beautiful.
During the day we help each other clean up the mess in our homes. People sit in their cars, looking at news on their navigation screens, or line up to get drinking water when a source is open. If someone has water running in their home, they put out a sign so people can come to fill up their jugs and buckets.
It's utterly amazingly that where I am there has been no looting, no pushing in lines. People leave their front door open, as it is safer when an earthquake strikes. People keep saying, "Oh, this is how it used to be in the old days when everyone helped one another."
Quakes keep coming. Last night they struck about every 15 minutes. Sirens are constant and helicopters pass overhead often.
We got water for a few hours in our homes last night, and now it is for half a day. Electricity came on this afternoon. Gas has not yet come on. But all of this is by area. Some people have these things, others do not. No one has washed for several days. We feel grubby, but there are so much more important concerns than that for us now. I love this peeling away of non-essentials. Living fully on the level of instinct, of intuition, of caring, of what is needed for survival, not just of me, but of the entire group.
There are strange parallel universes happening. Houses a mess in some places, yet then a house with futons or laundry out drying in the sun. People lining up for water and food, and yet a few people out walking their dogs. All happening at the same time.
Other unexpected touches of beauty are first, the silence at night. No cars. No one out on the streets. And the heavens at night are scattered with stars. I usually can see about two, but now the whole sky is filled. The mountains are Sendai are solid and with the crisp air we can see them silhouetted against the sky magnificently.
And the Japanese themselves are so wonderful. I come back to my shack to check on it each day, now to send this e-mail since the electricity is on, and I find food and water left in my entranceway. I have no idea from whom, but it is there. Old men in green hats go from door to door checking to see if everyone is OK. People talk to complete strangers asking if they need help. I see no signs of fear. Resignation, yes, but fear or panic, no.
They tell us we can expect aftershocks, and even other major quakes, for another month or more. And we are getting constant tremors, rolls, shaking, rumbling. I am blessed in that I live in a part of Sendai that is a bit elevated, a bit more solid than other parts. So, so far this area is better off than others. Last night my friend's husband came in from the country, bringing food and water. Blessed again.
Somehow at this time I realize from direct experience that there is indeed an enormous Cosmic evolutionary step that is occurring all over the world right at this moment. And somehow as I experience the events happening now in Japan, I can feel my heart opening very wide. My brother asked me if I felt so small because of all that is happening. I don't. Rather, I feel as part of something happening that much larger than myself. This wave of birthing (worldwide) is hard, and yet magnificent.
Thank you again for your care and love of me.
Basically, an anti-radiation diet
Should focus on the following foods:• Miso soup• Spirulina, chlorella and the algaes (kelp, etc.)• Brassica vegetables and high beta carotene vegetables•
Beans and lentils• Potassium, calcium and mineral rich foods•
High nucleotide content foods to assist in cellular repair including spirulina, hlore...lla, algae,yeast, sardines, liver, anchovies and mackerel
veCod liver oil and olive oil• Avoid sugars and sweets and wheat.
All that is happening on this beautiful planet of ours has brought me to a sense of enormous appreciation of so much that makes up the 'life I'm living', whatever that means. Whilst walking along the cliffs this morning the vanilla/coconut scent of gorse drifted under my nose the glorious blue Atlantic was to one side, and the untamed wildness of the Cornish landscape felt like an embrace. At the same time, I was understanding the connection to all those human beings experiencing a different reality to the one I was in. Much as I might want to help, in that moment I realized that all I might do was to feel beauty to the depths that I was capable. Perhaps if many, many, many of us do that, together, at a regular time, feel the beauty and love in our lives whilst consciously connecting, - well, who knows what the outcome, if any, might be. – Anna in Cornwall
I wanted to e-mail you in regards to Japan and the shift it is creating globally. It is a tragedy, but it gets me thinking about the Earth Mother and how she is completely neutral and we are simply a part of it. Does it seem strange that there is such a disconnect from the ocean and weather in this day and age and it is those very things that are retaliating against us? I just wonder how to handle all the energy that is coming in and you were the only trustworthy person I could think of in such a dramatic period. I find myself running in the direction of my best self so that I can do my best to help, but lately it seems like I'm just running in place.
Also, I feel that all of this somehow relates to the base chakra? What do you think?? - Alexis USA
There is a lot going on, 11 is a master number and I just feel as if things are shifting for 2012 not that I think it will be the end of the world, just the end as we knew it, time for change I think. take care my wonderful friend

Some ways to assist Japan:
1. BLUE SAFFIRE LIGHT FOR JAPAN (thanks to Ester for this)
One of our teachers, Kalliope Pateras from Greece, has kindly sent through this message from El Morya. Please help project the Blue Sapphire colour into and over the nuclear reactors in Japan. Many thanks.
From El Morya
Received 15 March 2011
A Blue Sapphire colour projected into the nuclear reactors of Japan will help to produce a cooling effect to lower temperatures.
And too, projecting this energy of colour into the clouds above will produce a buffering effect.
Your efforts, intentions will be magnified as we will be projecting with you. Call upon us before you start and we will be with you.
2. HEART RHYTM MEDITATION (from my friend Shu-fang Wang in London)
I would like to invite you to join me to do meditation for a week, sending healing to Japan Disaster area and people in need of help. Let's also focus on the nuclear reactor using the water breath of Heart Rhythm Meditation (inhale through nose, exhale through mouth).
I receive this wonderful message today:
"And if a thousand spiritual people speak, they will say the same thing, perhaps in different words but with only one meaning, for they have one and the same vision."
--Hazrat Inayat Khan
Our 'vision' for helping those in Japan is one.
I have just read this headline:
"Japan Asks US To Help Stop Reactor Meltdown".
It say 'US', but I read it as 'us'!!
I will be meditating every morning at 7am UK time with whoever like to join us.
Love to you all,
3. GLOBAL COHERENCE lNITIATIVE – focus on Japan
(For those of you not familiar with GCI , it is “a science-based, co-creative project to unite people in heart-focused care and intention, to facilitate the shift in global consciousness from instability and discord to balance, cooperation and increasing peace”- worth looking at their website www.glcoherence.org)
GCI Care Focus - Japan Earthquake
As we compassionately hold Japan in our heart space, let’s fill the affected areas with unconditional love and heart warmth. While doing this, envision a most comforting and peaceful process of recovery guided by the spirit of love and compassion.
Also let’s remember to hold in our heart space, Libya, the Middle East and other areas of turbulence and duress. Let’s sustain our vision for the highest best outcome and the most peaceful resolution while maintaining compassion and unconditional love.
Through these emerging global stress events, it’s important to practice the caring maintenance of our own energy balance in relationship to these seemingly ongoing occurrences. When our emotions are exhausted and frayed, it compromises our personal system and diminishes the effectiveness of our intentions to be helpful. We compassionately realize it’s harder to prevent emotional drain at times when personally connected to these stressful events. Yet it’s worth taking time out on occasion to consciously breathe the feeling of calm and restoration into your system. Doing this from your genuine heart feelings restores emotional resilience, which is especially needed when giving energetic care and support to others who are experiencing a harder time. Use any restoration techniques that work for you. The important thing is: at least remember to do it. Self-care is an essential component in global care.
To join us in the Global Care Room; you can enter the room directly from www.globalcarerooms.org. Simply log-in with your e-mail and GCI password. You may also enter by logging into www.glcoherence.org and clicking the Global Care Room link on your My Member Page. Thank you for providing energetic care and support.
In order for GCI members around the world to participate at a convenient time, we have chosen noon, 8 p.m. and 4 a.m. Pacific Standard Time ( -8 hours GMT ) when GCI members in the Global Care Room can do the Care Focus together.
Thank you for your participation,
The GCI Staff
TEACHINGS OF THE SOUL:
Saint Theresa's Prayer
May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that
has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones, and
allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.
I” am the “I”
I” am the “I”
“I” come forth from the void into light,
“I” am the breath that nurtures life,
“I” am the emptiness, that hollowness beyond all consciousness
The “I”, the Id, the All
“I” draw my bow of rainbows across the waters,
The continuum of minds with matters.
“I” am the incoming and outgoing of breath,
The invisible, untouchable breeze,
The undefinable atom of creation
“I” am the “I”
(thanks to Lindsay for this)
DOING A PEACE AND HEALING MANDALA FOR THE EARTH
Mandalas have been used for centuries. The Monks of Tibet do huge mandalas with different coloured sand and stones and spend many, many hours working on a mandala to make it incredibly rich and beautiful and meaningful - and then they tip it over into a flowing river to release it to the world for healing and also to show that in our physical dimension everything ends and returns to source.
Working with mandalas helps us connect the different parts of ourselves. This leads to wholeness and fulfilment, and enables us to create something specific that we desire, wish to heal, change or awaken. It also connects the right and left parts of our brain, restoring balance.
The mandala also works in the sub- conscious mind. It’s not a conscious process. But by making it conscious as well it becomes more than just an ordinary mandala process.
Working with a mandala with intention can create amazing change – because you are working on your soul patterns, creating new templates in other dimensional frequencies.
Enjoy it! It is a healing meditation that is so simple - too simple for the thinking mind to grasp. How can something so simple and even childlike be effective?
INSTRUCTIONS TO DO THE MANDALA
1. Get some colouring pencils (any type that you are drawn to) and print out the mandala (below).
2. Only use your left hand – if you forget you need to start a whole new mandala- VERY IMPORTANT!!
(Note: Your left hand is linked to your intuitive side and that is the part of you that you want to make more active in your life – so that is the reason why you are only allowed to use your left hand for the colouring in of the mandala.)
3. Before you start: first write with your LEFT hand the intention of the mandala- CREATING HEALING AND PEACE FOR THE WORLD IN 2011
4. Only do the colouring in when you are in a quiet space when you are completely on your own
5. Don’t show the mandala to anyone until you have finished it - it may disturb the energy
6. Use any colours and start any- where on the mandala that feels right for you
7. You are not doing it to make it look pretty, or to impress anyone- be authentic and just express whatever you feel while you are doing the colouring in
8. Every time that you work on it with a colour, make a note of what your feelings/thoughts were on the back of the mandala WITH YOUR LEFT HAND – just a few words will be fine
9. Notice particularly what emotional and energetic changes have happened to you and your environment.

SOME CURRENT CHANNELLED PERSPECTIVES:
(thanks to Beate for sending this- please note it has some disturbing images of children born in Iraq because of the terrible side- effects of certain weapons used)
Events move on towards the inevitable changes that will see your future fulfilled. These are not easy times but you knew that part of your experiences would include this period. Your confidence in the outcome arises from your faith in us and the Creator, and the many higher Beings that have accompanied you all through your lives. You know that nothing can alter it, and those of you that desire to ascend will do so.
Unlike previous times when such opportunities have arisen, you are assured that Ascension will take place. In fact it has been carefully planned on a Universal scale, and is to be an enormous event that happens very rarely. For you it has been a long time coming, but you have been spared a conscious memory of previous occasions. In the scheme of things time is not linear, but all is in the Now. The past, present and future are One, and you can move into whatever aspect of it that you wish. The future is full of probabilities which are why you will sometimes learn of different versions of it. It is you ultimately that attract the one that fulfils the vision created through your consciousness.
It is very important that you keep focused upon the Light that is bringing harmony to the Earth. The Light is streaming in and required more than ever at this time. It is an important period where with so much going on, you need to be in the world but not of it. Be a centre of Light so that you bring calmness to others who are in fear of the outcome. Speak to others of the necessity of changes and the great benefits they will bring. There will be rumors of catastrophic events as the dark Ones play upon people’s fears, but assure them that they are intended to distract them from the truth.
Everything has been foreseen, and ordained in such a way that the affects will be limited. If there is doubt remember that Man could have destroyed the Earth on more than one occasion in the last century, yet it did not take place. You are not only guided to fulfill your task of taking the Earth through to Ascension, but also helped to enlighten people around you. You have never been left alone to suffer the consequences of your actions, and compassion and love has been given to you in a never-ending flow.
The powers that be are generally speaking unaware of what is bringing about the chaotic conditions upon Earth. Often they are spiritually ill equipped to understand the implications of what they see happening and of necessity they will make way for those who do, and have the interests of all people at heart. We know who they are, and they will be protected to ensure that they can take their place of leadership when the opportunity arises. It does not mean that every person at present in such a position is going to be replaced as some are of the Light, but unable to exercise their desire to lift Mankind up.
The time of such changes is not far away, and once they commence it will bring a whole new approach in the way you are governed. With other benefits that you are expecting, the scenario will rapidly change to one of positive expectations, as at last you will see the way forward. Our eventual presence and opportunity to speak with you will clear the way for cooperation between us, and much will be achieved in next to no time. All of these things are moving towards manifestation, and you can be sure that the Galactic Federation is fully prepared for its role in your preparation for Ascension.
As individuals your contribution to the changes is important, and it is best served by sending out your Love and Light to wherever it is needed. The Middle East is an area that for ages past has accumulated much negativity, and it needs help to clear it. We can help in that respect but a mass sending of Light from you will best serve the interests of the people in that region. You are grasping how important and powerful the Light is, and no matter how many weapons are lined up against people they are no answer to it. The Light is the most powerful “weapon” that you can respond with, and it is an unending supply that you can draw through yourself.
The Light can accompany your prayers or meditations, thus empowering them with your love. You are All One, and as such there should be no discrimination between one soul to another as to whom you send it to. Love is the healing balm that can cure all ills, and you can apply it to all forms of life. The Earth has been a difficult place for many animals to exist, and they equally deserve your love. There is everlasting life so in actual reality no death, but all living things do nevertheless benefit from receiving love. Kindness and compassion are much needed at this time, and when those thoughts are sent out they do have an uplifting affect.
Man is naturally a benign Being, and it is only the lower vibrations that have introduced the negative traits that have pulled many souls down. There is no longer any reason to continue living at that level, as you can rise up with the new energies coming in. You are not victims but willing participants, and there is every opportunity to lift yourselves up. Think about what you say and the way that you act, and move on from judgement and criticism of another person.
Most people are trying their best in difficult circumstances, and because the end times present an opportunity to clear karma, have undertaken much more than they might normally do. In reality there is no such thing as an easy life, but you tend to measure that by a person’s wealth that can be a burden or a blessing depending on how it is used. In the near future you will be sharing the wealth of the world fairly, and it will create a society of equal opportunity and eliminate the class distinction that now exists.
Dear Ones, there is a revolution taking place in your world, and consciousness levels are rising and pointing you in the right direction. It is the final battle of this cycle, and you have taken the opportunity to reach the stage whereby you can leave the cycle of duality forever. When you have learnt the lessons it has to offer, the experience gained elevates your consciousness to a higher level. When it is reached the lower vibrations become uncomfortable and no longer serve you any purpose. In such circumstances you are ready to leave duality, for a new level that is more in line with your own and your needs.
I am SaLuSa from Sirius, and much admire your tenacity and determination to win through the remaining challenges that confront you. We are with you all the way, and great times are approaching as you achieve success.
Thank you SaLuSa.
WHAT ARE THE PLANETS UP TO AT THE MOMENT?
Saturn rises around sunset becoming bright as it comes to opposition with the Sun and its closest encounter with Earth this year on the night of 3/4 April, 1289 million km or 71.6 light minutes away from the Earth.
The Moon is north of Venus on the morning of 31 March and the very old crescent Moon is also north of Mars on the morning of 2 April. On 3 April the Moon passes south of Uranus during twilight. And the new crescent Moon passes close north of the planet Mercury during the day of 4 April.
Mercury brightens rapidly this month until 27 April when it is brighter than Mars and by the end of the month all the planets Venus, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter as well as Uranus are in the morning sky. If you do get up early for the 1st of May (spring day or Beltane in the Northern Hemisphere), do look at the eastern sky before sunrise- you will see all the planets lined up together low near the horizon.
