Om Mani Padme Hum (by HH 14th Dalai Lama)

On the meaning of: OM MANI PADME HUM

The jewel is in the lotus or praise to the jewel in the lotus
by His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso The Fourteenth Dalai Lama of Tibet

It is very good to recite the mantra OM MANI PADME HUM, but while you are doing it, you should be thinking on its meaning, for the meaning of the six syllables is great and vast. The first, OM, is composed of three pure letters, A, U, and M. These symbolize the practitioner's impure body, speech, and mind; they also symbolize the pure exalted body, speech and mind of a Buddha.
Can impure body, speech and mind be transformed into pure body, speech and mind, or are they entirely separate? All Buddhas are cases of being who were like ourselves and then in dependence on the path became enlightened; Buddhism does not assert that there is anyone who from the beginning is free from faults and possesses all good qualities. The development of pure body, speech, and mind comes from gradually leaving the impure states and their being transformed into the pure.
How is this done? The path is indicated by the next four syllables. MANI, meaning jewel, symbolizes the factor of method- the altruistic intention to become enlightened, compassion, and love. Just as a jewel is capable of removing poverty, so the altruistic mind of enlightenment is capable of removing the poverty, or difficulties, of cyclic existence and of solitary peace. Similarly, just as a jewel fulfills the wishes of sentient beings, so the altruistic intention to become enlightened fulfills the wishes of sentient beings.
The two syllables, PADME, meaning lotus, symbolize wisdom. Just as a lotus grows forth from mud but is not sullied by the faults of mud, so wisdom is capable of putting you in a situation of non-contradiction where as there would be contradiction if you did not have wisdom. There is wisdom realizing impermanence, wisdom realizing that persons are empty of self-sufficient or substantial existence, wisdom that realizes the emptiness of duality (that is to say, of difference of entity between subject and object), and wisdom that realizes the emptiness of inherent existence. Though there are may different types of wisdom, the main of all these is the wisdom realizing emptiness.
Purity must be achieved by an indivisible unity of method and wisdom, symbolized by the final syllable, HUM, which indicates indivisibility. According to the sutra system, this indivisibility of method and wisdom refers to one consciousness in which there is a full form of both wisdom affected by method and method affected by wisdom. In the mantra, or tantra vehicle, it refers to one conciousness in which there is the full form of both wisdom and method as one undifferentiable entity. In terms of the seed syllables of the five conqueror Buddhas, HUM is the is the seed syllable of Akshobhya- the immovable, the unfluctuating, that which cannot be disturbed by anything.
Thus the six syllables, OM MANI PADME HUM, mean that in dependence on the practice which is in indivisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech and mind into the pure body, speech, and mind of a Buddha. It is said that you should not seek for Buddhahood outside of yourself; the substances for the achievement of Buddhahood are within. As Maitreya says in his SUBLIME CONTINUUM OF GREAT VEHICLE (UTTARA TANTRA) all beings naturally have the Buddha nature in their own continuum. We have within us the seed of purity, the essence of a One Gone Thus (TATHAGATAGARBHA), that is to be transformed and full developed into Buddhahood.

Ten Rules for Being Human


"Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood."
Helen Keller

Life has often been compared to a game. We are never told the rules, unfortunately, nor given any instructions about how to play. We simply begin at "Go" and make our way around the board, hoping we play it right. We don't exactly know the objective of playing, nor what it means to actually win.

That is what Ten Rules for Being Human is all about. These are the guidelines to playing the game we call life, but they are also much more than that. These Rules will provide you with a basic spiritual primer for what it means to be a human. They are universal truths that everyone inherently knows but has forgotten somewhere along the way. They form the foundation of how we can live a fulfilling, meaningful life.

Each Rule presents its own challenge, which in turn provides certain lessons we all need to learn. Lessons are what you learn when you come up against problems that need to be solved and issues that need to be exorcised. Every person on the planet has his or her own set of lessons to learn that are separate and unique from everyone else's, and these lessons, as you will see in Rule Four, will reappear until they are mastered.

The Ten Rules for Being Human are not magic, nor do they promise ten easy steps to serenity. They offer no quick fix for emotional or spiritual ailments, and they are not fast-track secrets to enlightenment. Their only purpose is to give you a road map to follow as you travel your path of spiritual growth.

These Rules are not the oppressive rules and regulations that tell us what we should or should not do, or think, or say. These Rules are not mandates, but rather guidelines as to how to play the game. There is nothing you absolutely must do. I hope this book will help you to become more aware of them. By learning the valuable lessons and wisdom they offer, your journey on this Earth might just be a little bit easier.

1. You will receive a body.
You may like it or hate it, but it’s yours to keep for the entire period.

2. You will learn lessons.
You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called, “life.”

3. There are no mistakes, only lessons.
Growth is a process of trial, error, and experimentation.
The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately “work.”

4. Lessons are repeated until they are learned.
A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it.
When you have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson.

5. Learning lessons does not end.
There’s no part of life that doesn’t contain its lessons.
If you’re alive, that means there are still lessons to be learned.

6. “There” is no better a place than “here.”
When your “there” has become a “here”, you will simply obtain another “there” that will again look better than “here.”

7. Other people are merely mirrors of you.
You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.

8. What you make of your life is up to you.
You have all the tools and resources you need.
What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.

9. Your answers lie within you.
The answers to life’s questions lie within you.
All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.

10. You will forget all this at birth

The Twelve Paradigms (by Steve Rother)

The following 12 Paradigms for Facilitating Healing in the 5th Dimension are intended to help you to both define higher truths for yourself, as well as keep your balance while creating space for others to heal themselves.

1. Focus on Empowerment.
Healing in the higher vibrations of the New Earth can only take place when each person holds their own power. This means that our first concern and our first intent must always be to find ways to facilitate others without taking their power from them.

2. Healing by Request.
Henceforth, all healing facilitation must be by request only. It is no longer possible in the new energy to facilitate healing for another without their specifically requesting it.

3. Intent.
In the New Energy, it is only possible to facilitate healing with the highest intent. Remember - on the New Planet Earth. . . there will be no more secrets. Thus, as facilitators, we must allow ourselves and our motivations to be fully apparent.

4. Perception.
Understand that illness is not always a sign that something is wrong. There are times when illness is necessary to facilitate change, and our role is merely to help facilitate that process. It’s important to recognize that illness is only one state of health, and that a healing facilitator must learn to work with all states in order to create environments where health prevails.

5. Truth.
As a facilitator it is important to always speak one’s own truth. Yet, in doing so, we must acknowledge that truth is always a work in progress. Thus, leave yourself room for growth in the words you speak, and speak your truth in a fashion that allows others to stand in their own truth without feeling threatened by yours. Honor all flavors of the truth, no matter how different they may seem from your own. Remember - competition is only an illusion of polarity on the Gameboard.

6. Balanced Ego.
A balanced ego is necessary in order to facilitate healing. Thus, as facilitators, it is necessary for us to check our egos often and to examine truthfully our own motivations for our actions or words. If our ego grows too big, it will cut us off from our source. Yet, if it is not big enough, we will never take our place as a healer.

7. Discernment.
We must learn to practice the art of discernment in making choices without judgment; to monitor carefully what enters our field, and to be discriminating about choosing only those things and ideas that complement our own vibration. Everything else should be released without judgment. We do not have to be a part of everything. Rather, we must learn to choose only what feeds and nurtures us.

8. Creating Safe Space.
The wisest words that a facilitator can use are: "I do not know." Thus, even as we are teaching, we must make space for the empowerment of others. None of us has all of the answers, but together, all of us have access to all of the answers.

9. Vulnerability.
Our true strength as healers lies in being able to be vulnerable. It is our humanness that makes us special. We must learn to let this shine through in all that we do, and to share mistakes openly with others. In this way, our perceived weaknesses will soon become our greatest strengths.

10. Mastery of Thought.
Remember - we may not have control over the thoughts that enter our heads, but we do have complete control over what stays there. Thus it is our responsibility to become a master of our own thoughts and to share this process with those with whom we work.

11. Motivation.
It’s important to understand that everyone has the same base motivation. Fundamentally, we are all like little children, fumbling around in a darkened room, searching for the door back into the light. The easiest way to find the Light while not hurting one another is to hold hands.

12. Responsibility.
It is not possible to heal another. It is only possible to create and offer them space in which to heal themselves, if they so choose. So do not take responsibility for the healing of anyone other than yourself. If you should find yourself drained of energy by your clients it is because you are taking responsibility for their healing. Remember that responsibility is the balance of power. Help those you facilitate to take responsibility for their own healing so that they may hold their true power.

Remember to Laugh & Lightbody Energies with the Solstice (by Shelly Dressel)

Sunday, 20 June 2010

This is a channel that took place on the eve of the summer/winter solstice. Many people are feeling the shifting of the energies with a particular intensity that took place around the solstice. This channeled meditation will assist you in reconnecting with those energies if you so choose. The overriding essence of this message is to remember to have fun! She spoke several times about the way that energies can shift or transform just through finding something light or fun. She reminded us to look for the joy or look for the lightness in any part of the day.

In addition to that the lightbody energies came through to speak with us. We have been integrating more and more of these energies over the past nine months. We first felt the introduction last August, then as more people work with and integrate their lightbody energies-the more there is available for all. So this was an experience of linking into that source energy through the lightbody consciousness speaking to us. They opened a portal into the Omniverse and showed us the immense energy and changes that are our potentials. As we felt this alignment, we could all recognize how this also reflects ourselves in one way or another.

Finally, we had a sense of standing in a space of balance. It was as if there was the balance of; human/ divine selves, Omniverse/ Earth, northern/ southern hemispheres. The more that we tap into balance, in whatever form, the more enhanced our lives become.

Nama sika; venia benya I AM the one, I AM the whole

I greet you my beloved family! I reach out and I flow the essence of love into each one of you. As I look at you, as I see you, I see you as the human that you are but I also see you as your divine essence.

I hear from so many, that as their divinity they feel a certain worthiness, they feel a certain expansion; they feel very comfortable with this integrated and expended energy. And then as you shift it down and look at that individual as their human existence there is a discrepancy. So I ask that if this something you find for yourself, is there something different between your human self and your divine essence? If so, take a breath in allowing yourself to breathe within your human existence and then breath out and let go of anything that keeps you from feeling fully blended with your divinity and your human existence.

We are here in the northern hemisphere enjoying the summer solstice; we are on the eve of that or the cusp of that. Those of you in the southern hemisphere are enjoying the winter solstice. There is a link between the two. You may see them as opposites, summer versus winter, short days versus long days. You may see yourself as a human and then yourself as your divinity as if they are polar opposites or is if there is a separation. But here, especially at this time of the solstice I invite you to allow your energy to really expand and as if you are reaching out, be it to the southern hemisphere or the northern; reach out to that aspect of the world's energies and let that flow through you so that you can feel yourself as if you are standing there on the equator. You feel the balance, the balance of winter versus summer, the balance of human versus divinity.

I hear so often messages from you who speak of balancing things within their lives, who speak of finding the time to get everything done, who speak of seeking to manifest one particular thing in their lives. Sometimes what happens is, it creates intensity within you and that intensity creates walls that surround you. So, here, now in this moment allow yourself to breathe deeply. As you stand in the balance, breath in the energies of the solstice and let them clear out any intensity or anything that keeps you shut off or contain, [Deep breath] and you are doing this all here while still on the earth plane.

This is what I speak of that will become easier and easier for people. You don't always need to go to the All That Is to be able to access these energies. They are becoming available for you here in your everyday life, especially during the equinox and the solstices. There is a greater ease in the flow that moves through the energies of the Universe and the energies of the Earth. Breathe that into yourselves, feel how good it feels.

And now, I invite you to have a sense of shifting, shifting into the energies of the magnetic grid. This is a means that allows you to expand your consciousness. Here within the magnetic grid you can feel your own energies. You allow this to circulate around you but you let yourself remain fully cognizant of who you are.

I then invite you to shift through the interlocking grid so that you may more fully move into the crystalline grid. Again here within this space feel your essence. As you feel this energy moving through the crystalline you can find those aspects of yourself that are more fully aligned within this space. There is so much happening, there is so much energy moving through the crystalline grid and you can tap on this as much of this or as little as you so desire.

I invite you to shift your focus once more so that you may move into the soul plane. As you move within the soul plane feel how your energy expands. For many of you this feels comfortable as if you are coming home, as if this is where you want to be. Your divinity has easy access within this dimension, so have a sense of consciously reaching out. Some of you may feel it coming up from within, others may have a sense of walking towards and blending with your divinity. Howsoever you choose to blend feel all of your essence expanding in this moment.

I the Goddess come into this space. You may see me as the brilliant light. I move in and amongst all of you. I reach out to each one of you and I embrace you. I embrace you as your divinity; I embrace you as your human existence. As we merge you will find yourself moving into the space of the All That Is. Here within the All That Is you find yourself expending once more. Feel your energies and allow yourself to become one with this space if you so choose.

Have a sense of looking off to the side and you see the brilliant light of the light body energies as they come into this space. For some of you there is no separation. You feel this light body energy as it begins to glow already within you. For others, who are still in the process of integrating this energy, allow yourself to feel it, allow yourself to see this light as it moves through this space.

I the Goddess am going to step to the side, because the consciousness of the Light body energy would like to speak with all of you this evening:

We greet you earthlings, beloved family. We greet you as we create a bridge that allows us to be able to communicate with you. We are here on this time of the solstice to assist in creating a bridge for the more deeper integration of these energies. Yes, yes, many of you will be listening to this or reading it when the solstice is done and gone, but that's okay, because once we open up this portal so to speak or this experience, any time that somebody reaches out to this experience, they can feel it for themselves.

It was not so very long ago that I was like something completely alien to you. I really did not know how to speak in this type of language and very few of you were able to integrate our energies as we began flooding the earth to a much greater degree. Look at yourself now; see that inner brilliance that is there, that is a part of you. Sometimes people may look at you and say, ‘that is a person who is deeply connected to their divinity' and that is your Lightbody energy shining through. Other people may have a sense of discerning the specific energy bodies within and around you and they may recognize the Lightbody energy as its own entity so to speak.

There is a much greater potential for growth available to everybody. It has become increasingly available for the last nine months, as if you are birthing a child; you have given birth to the Light body energies so to speak. What you have actually given birth to is not the energies themselves but your alignment with them and your ability to integrate and interpret what these energies mean to you.

We are here and on this eve of the solstice we want to show you a portal to the universe. First of all, allow your consciousness to expand. You may do this by having a sense of relaxing even further. As you relax, you can feel your energies just naturally moving out as if to encompass a greater amount of energy. Now, feel yourself as you blend with your Lightbody energies. Feel how it allows you to become more transparent.

As you allow your consciousness to be this pure crystalline energy because that is a huge portion of the Light body energy, is the crystalline energy - so allow yourself to become crystalline. As if you're looking out towards the Omniverse, allow your senses to open up and it is as if I am opening a door, [Deep breath] and here look outward, look into the universe, at the planets, at the stars. It is as if it is teaming with life, as if you are watching a movie or screen but this screen is very interactive.

If you so choose have a sense of taking my hand, and we are going to shift into a space with which you vibrate. It is as if you are taking this moment, to simply experience these energies of the Omniverse. As you look around feel everything that is here. Consider, whatever it is that you find yourself connecting to. Some of you it may be as if you experience something that's happening in your life on the earth plane. You experience it here in this dimension, but from a new and different perspective. For others it is as if you find yourself in front of whatever it is that will be your next step upon the earth.

There is technology out here, there is an abstract energy, there are ways of traveling, ways of creating energy and there is a limitless potential. This is where I came from as I began working with you. I have been the conduit through which many of these energies of the crystalline and of this higher vibration have been able to funnel into the earth plane. Open to receive all that is here for you. Is there a particular question that you have had? Send that question out into this Omniverse and then be open to receive any response that may come back to you.

Some of you have been asking to incorporate a greater and greater amount of this Lightbody energy. As your consciousness is moving within this space, you realize that you are pure Lightbody energy. Absolutely you have your alignment to your consciousness. You still have that cord of energy that keeps you anchored into your human self. You have your divinity and all that that entails. But here within this space, you can feel who you are as pure Light body or crystalline vibration.

Many people ask us, what dimension is this? What year will it all manifest upon the earth? And the answer to those depends on the perspective from which you are looking at it. So allow yourself to let go of specifics and instead allow your focus to be creating a shift in your earthbound energy that allows this to more fully become your everyday reality on the earth. You see how easy it is to move within this space, you see how much energy is here and available for you.

Allow your energy or your focus to once more shift into the space of the All That Is. As our focus comes back within here, we see there are many who chose to remain here during this experience and that is wonderful because that is what they needed at this time. As the rest of the people came back into this space it was as if we saw beams of light and people anchoring that light within their consciousness as it is here upon the earth. Feel who you are, feel what all of this means to you.

I, the speaker for the Lightbody energy, am going to shift my focus once more, so that I blend with the Goddess of Creation and she will once more pickup for this next portion of your experience. But to all of you who are here, consciously and unconsciously, know that the Lightbody energies are available to you. Know that you are connected. Allow this alignment to move through you in every degree of who you are.

I thank you for the opportunity to show you this space from which I come. I encourage you to come and visit me at any time.


(The Goddess returns)

Wasn't that delightful beloved family? As I observed what all that was going on with you, there was a part of me that was just marveling at how far you have come. I remember when we started these journeys. Therefore, as I look at you now I feel such excitement and such joy over all that is happening.

I would like to remind each of you to play. A little bit of what this journey was for you tonight, was for you to play in the energies of the Lightbody, was for you to play with the experience of feeling your consciousness shift and zoom and soar. How much are you playing within your life on Earth? Do you remember to find a portion of every day and then allow yourself the energies of playfulness? Some of you are excellent at this is, others of you has been through very challenging and trying times. Those are the times when remembering to play is most helpful and yet they are the times in which you become most distant from playing.

As you feel your energies float, as you feel them move through your day, finding an opportunity to laugh, remembering perhaps to dance and play in the grass. For those of you in the summertime, remembering when you ran through the sprinkler or you swam, or you played in the meadow; those times may take you back to the memory and the experience of childhood.

For those of you who experience this time as the winter, perhaps it's your time when the days are short, that you hibernate a bit and you rejuvenate. So too this can be a time to enjoy the energies of transition, to play in the snow if that surrounds you, to get outside and feel the energies of the sun and moon as you walk and skip. No matter where you live, no matter what is going on within your life, playfulness is an energy, playfulness is an attitude.

Absolutely there are things in your life that are very serious. I see that and I honor it. I also remind you not to let that become your focus, so that you forget to see the other things that are there and present around you. Feel the flow of energy, feel the flow of motion, feel laughter bubble up within you, perhaps right now. Feel the joy, I send joy out from me, I send it out in wave upon wave, letting it move through all of you! I invite you to accept this within you.

I send out to each one of you dancing under the moon, basking in the sun, laughing and playing by yourself or with your friends or your family. Laughter feels good; laughter gives you a new perspective. Laughter and joy actually allow you to expand even further than you had realized you were able to do so. Accept laughter and joy into your life. And you find flowing right along on the heels of the laughter and the joy is the crystalline vibration from this evening. This energy aligns within you with much greater ease when you have the lightness that goes along with laughter and joy, when you consider something within your life that's bothering you, something that doesn't seem to be shifting. As I say this I immediately see several of you just kind of thinking with the density of that thought that worry and concern. So I invite you to allow that to shift. I invite you to infuse any of these energies into whatever it is that you've been struggling with.

Here in the space of the All That Is, look around you, be open to understand the potentials. Be open to feel and accept your life with all that is you. As we continue to flow these energies through each of you, I invite you to gather together as a group. As you return have a sense of the hologram of the earth coming up within the center of all of these energies. This hologram, as you look at it, has an alignment with your physical earth and an alignment with Ariellis, also known as the new Earth.

Allow yourself to once more open to feel all of that Lightbody energy that was flowing through you during this journey. As you allow your energy to move through the Omniverse tap into everything with which you link and let that flow through your consciousness as you transmit it into these holograms. There is a much greater amount of the crystalline energy that is able to be infused at this time. So amplify anything that is in alignment with you; with who you are, with where you are in your life and with what you seek to have.

These holograms transition easily as you do this. These holograms become filled with sparkling light and they spin and rotate as this alignment takes place. Have a sense as a group of sending these energies out from here. There is an aspect that moves through the grid aligning with Ariellis and then the other aspect that moves through until it links with the magnetic grid, where a portion of this moves throughout the magnetic grid, and the remainder goes down into your physical earth. As these energies move into your earth see how they blend.

As you have a sense of observing the Earth itself you can take in a deep breath and feel how you stand here as the balance. Just as you did on the earth before, have a sense of feeling your earthbound energy on one side of you and your Omniverse energy on the other. And you as your consciousness allow for this to flow through you. Feel how powerful you are! Feel how light and transparent you become. This is all amplified with the energies of the solstice. And so you send that down into the earth and as it anchors within the center of the earth. Those energies then reverse and shift and come back up moving through the Earth itself creating a deeper potential, activating those parts of the earth energies that have been waiting for this alignment to take place and does energies come back up. They move up through the blades of grass, through the trees through, the water. They move up within you, they come up to your feet. It moves through your body, and you can anchor it within yourself as we release those energies. As they do so feel yourself as intact. Feel yourself as who you are and feel these energies as they flow.

Allow your consciousness to once more come back within the All That Is. We invite you to choose to take this energy with you, but you shift your focus once more into the soul plane. You may have a sense of a greater perception of what your divinity is to you. You also may recognize that more of your divinity flows with you as your consciousness begins to journey back into your physical being.

You move through the crystalline grid, you feel all that sparkling energy creating greater clarity within you as your own Lightbody energy aligns with crystalline energy. As you move through the magnetic grid you once more feel that pull of the Earth, you feel that magnetic pull as it begins to ground you.

As you feel your consciousness shifting back once more. Allow the energy around your physical presence to expand so that you may integrate more of that Lightbody energy and more of your conscious awareness from your divinity. As you take slow and easy breath feel that crystalline vibration move throughout your physical body, feel it within every cell within you, feel your organs creating and alignment for this deeper and deeper integration.

As you feel all of your essence coming back within this space, remember the laughter and the play. Remember that you are going to dedicate a certain amount of time during a day to playful experiences. Let that intension flow through you and send it forth into the hours and days to come.

As you continue to ground these energies, as you allow yourself to feel that joy to feel that presence. Allow all of your consciousness to come back within you, within this space. And as you are doing this begin to come back within the room if you would like to ask a question...

Alchemy: The Transformative Power of Love (by Kahu Fred Sterling)

KIRAEL: In the last few sessions, I have focused on love in the context of ascension, prana, pineal and photon, and now alchemy. It may seem repetitious, but I want to emphasize just how important the healing power of love is and how love can be woven into every aspect of your life. It’s the one source of energy that will get you through the Shift.

See and Hold the Gold
So today we concentrate on alchemy, which the populace has always thought of as the transformation of a base metal into gold. The alchemy I’m talking about today is spiritual and involves the transformative power of love, the alchemy that occurs in your four-bodied system every time love is introduced into the mix. In the alchemical process, fear is pulled out of the love so that you’re left with the purity of love. You ask, “Master Kirael, how can love have fear in it?” Well, the third dimension is all about duality, which means that love must have an opposite. Here, love is woven with fear, because you believe you can’t know love unless you know fear. It is this fear that makes third-dimensional love conditional. Alchemized love is pure and unconditional, a love without fear.
To perform alchemy, you will have to place a magical series of energies, namely, your cellular consciousness of fear, into your mind. In other words, you will have to recall all your fears by bringing them up to the surface of your mind, and then pulling them out of your love. Practice pulling out the fear. Close your eyes and bring all the fears you’ve ever had to the surface of your mind. Then ask the God Creator to open the path for you to release the fears and enter into the state of love. See the golden energy that everybody has inside glowing in front of your eyes. Normally you see black when you close your eyes, but you will see the gold, because you’re allowing the fear to go away and love to enter into you. You are completing a journey of fear and starting a journey of love.
You cannot begin a new journey without ending an old one. See and hold the gold, my friends. When you can see and hold the gold, you have come to the close of your fear, so to speak. That little magical moment of time and space when no fear is present creates, for just a split second, a new opening for you to feel the purity of love. You can do this any time you want.
Now, in order to go deeply into this process, you must understand your part in this journey of alchemy. Your part involves feeling the love that alchemy makes available to you. To feel the love throughout your four bodies, activate your God cell, your Signature cell. You will feel the love rise and come out of your chest and surround you. You will be able to distinguish this momentary feeling of love from the fear you usually feel. If you feel spirit energies in front of you when you feel this love, you needn’t be concerned. Those spirits may come in any shape or form and they will permit your journey to go forward without interference, because they are love energies and they have to go through God Creator to get to you, and only love can go through the God Creator.

Open Up to Your Magi Powers
I am not here to teach you alchemy, because you are already alchemists. I am here to get you to remember alchemy. If you were to trace your energetic roots back to Lemuria, you would see your alchemical history, so to speak. You would see that in that lifetime, your cellular consciousness was free of fear. It was pure love. When you do this alchemy process in the Now, don’t be concerned about your body. You will be working with your cellular consciousness. You can use this process of pulling out the fear in Signature Cell Healing, because alchemy is woven into the Signature Cell Healing process. Pure healing takes place in Signature Cell Healing because of the infusion of love into the process. Signature Cell Healing will not work in fullness without the love that cleanses your cellular consciousness. So, if you want to heal using Signature Cell Healing or most any other modality (except allopathic medicine, which is a different journey, not bad, not good, just what it is), do it in love. It will be a profound and permanent healing, because you will stream love in after pulling out the fear.
If you don’t succeed in your first session, don’t feel badly, because if you do, you’ll go back to fear. Do your best to pull the fear out. When you do, you can open up another journey into that little space of magic, not sleight of hand magic, but what I call the “magi” powers that lie within the glow of the golden energy. The magi powers are available to you. Jesus embodied the magi powers. That’s how he was able to heal others as quickly and completely as he did. He filled his being with that energy, drew the same energy from the crowd around him, and put it all into the person receiving a healing.
It takes very little time to do this process, maybe five or six seconds, and you can do it at any time, anywhere. After a while, it will be automatic. The love you feel will last less than the time it took to shut off your fear, but each time you do the process, the love will last a little longer. It may be marginal in the beginning, but at some point, you’ll feel a love so pure that you will be traumatized when you have to leave it to return to the third dimension.

The Love of the Magi
Q: What is the difference between magi and magic?
KIRAEL: Magic is illusion and sleight of hand. It produces fear in people. The energy of the magi can be called supernatural. It gives you goose bumps when you experience it. Here’s the rub: magic is the fear portion of the magi energy; yet, the magi energy stems from the purity of love. This may be confusing for you to understand, but in this dimension, magic is present in the magi energy, otherwise the magi energy wouldn’t work. That’s the duality of this third dimension. In order to have magi energy, you must have magic. So the magic is the sleight of hand, the tricksters, etc. The magi is the love of the magic. I’ve given you two defined words with defined meanings that don’t make sense to anybody except perhaps my own energies. However, the more I talk about this, the more enlightened you’ll become. When you take the magic out of the magi energy, you feel love and your powers become supernatural, if you will, and you won’t need magic; you won’t need tricks.
You can find the magi energy in anything. Take surfing, for example. The magi of surfing comes in the elation one feels when pushing through the fear of a monstrous wave and becoming part of it. At that moment of oneness, the magi takes over.
The magi energy is present in the death process. When you are about to leave this life, you see the magi energy and you love it and go willingly into the light. If you’re driving along at 600 miles an hour and you hit a wall, you know you will die, but you will also see the magi energy before you hit that wall. You’ll be out of this human journey and you’ll watch your death happen, because you will leave your body about 40 seconds before you hit that wall. You never, ever experience a violent death, because the magi energy, that supernatural energy, takes over before death. The magi energy, as I know it, stems from a love that many humans call divine. It is indeed divine.
Q: Where is the magi?
KIRAEL: The magi energy is in your cellular consciousness. You can never reach outside to find the magi energy. When you go from one place to another, you end one journey and begin a new one. That’s how the magi energy encourages you to find love. First, you must go to the place of pulling out the fear. That’s one journey. Then, when that is done, you must begin a new journey to find the purity of love. In other words, the magi adventure is not love when you first touch into it. You must first pull out the fear. When the magi energy goes into the purity of love, you will feel the difference and you will know and feel what you’ve really come here to experience.
Fear is the most predominant part of this third-dimensional journey because it’s the easiest for you to get into. It’s the foundation of duality. You’ll rock and roll through this duality journey, but your pure love, the magi part of this journey, is not that easy to find in this dimension. Work at it. Practice tapping into the magi energy whenever you can.

Bring Out the Alchemist in You
Q: Can alchemy be used to perform long-distance group healings to help people around the world access this love energy?
KIRAEL: I guarantee it. You can’t measure that little space of love, but you can expand it every time you use this process. Close your eyes and follow the process I described in my opening statement and feel yourself burst out of this journey, go around the world, and return. That’s all you have to do. If you get only a quarter of an inch out of your body, that’s perfect. Learn how to shut off your fears, enter the space of love, and stay there as long as you can. You can heal the world like this, but don’t expect results overnight. More than likely, you can reach one person or perhaps one town at a time. On the other hand, if every lightworker did this exercise, the world could change exponentially. The more often you touch someone else with that pure love energy, the more likely he will be to access that energy in himself. This exercise also works to get you into the fourth light.
Q: How do we use alchemy to move from fear to love in light of the proliferation of fear concerning the swine flue vaccine?
KIRAEL: First, you must know that this swine flu is a human-made journey. It wasn’t developed by accident. It was developed in a laboratory to do exactly what you described—create fear. You can alchemize this journey by going inside yourself and tapping into your love the way I just showed you. You will not only pull out the fear from your love, but you will neutralize the effect of the flu and the H1N1 vaccine. If you want to get the vaccine, do so; it won’t hurt you. If your blueprint says you are to die from the swine flu, it won’t matter whether or not you get the vaccine. The opposite is also true. If you are not meant to die from swine flu, you won’t, regardless of whether or not you get the vaccine.
Those who created this flu will come up with another type next year. A new type of flu that can engender fear will always be available. It is up to you to be aware that you can control your body’s response to the flu and any vaccine related to it. If you go into that little magi place and do what I told you to do, you will know what is best for you.
Q: What part does the non-polarity attribute of love play in performing alchemy and how do I bring out the alchemist that I am on a quantum level?
KIRAEL: As I have already stated, alchemy is the process by which you can reach into the non-polarity attribute of love, or pure love. The attainment of pure love is the goal of alchemy. Practice what I’ve given you in the meditation and you will bring out the alchemist in you. In this dimension, you believe that the opposite of love is hate or fear. If you go deeper into this process, you’ll understand that love is actually the absence of fear, not the opposite of it. You must learn to take the fear out of your journey. Pull it out and submerge it into love. The fear will not grow, and the love will envelope the fear. Do this with your mind. When you open up the local brain, where your mind resides, tentacles of energy emerge and weave with the omni brain, which is outside your journey. It’s a profound journey, requiring all of your concentrative powers.
Alchemy has no room for fear. You’re a particle of the God Creator, and when you open your brain and touch into that omni presence, you are touching into a part of you that is the love of all light. This process is pure and precious. You can do this, if you want to. The alchemy journey is the Mecca of love. When you get free of this fear that you’ve been learning since birth (spankings, yelling, screaming by parents, etc., in schools, in religious institutions, from teachers, on your job, etc.), you will touch into your child self, the one that is free of this fear, the one you were before birth. Do this regularly and you will pull the fear out of this third-dimensional experience of love. Your omni brain is absolutely fearless. When you weave your local and omni brains together, you create a purity that will be woven into your entire journey. Each time you do this, you will be above where you started here on Earth.

You Can Heal Anything if You Have the Courage
Q: As a healer, can I use alchemy to assist in healing mental illnesses, such as addiction?
KIRAEL: After you learn what addiction or mental disability the healee has, you must enter that space of loving the fear. Each of the four bodies—the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual—has seven layers, and any issue within the bodies has seven layers. It’s an exponential journey. That means that seven levels of a concentrated form of the addiction or mental illness exist within each of the four bodies of the person with an addiction. All humans have the lightest form of the seventh layer of addiction or mental illness. For those who have the concentrated form of addiction that invades all four bodies, the addiction becomes a journey in and of itself, a mental illness, if you will. When I say mental illness, I’m not talking about “craziness.” I’m talking about a lack of awareness. That means that when someone with an addiction comes for healing, the journey as healer is all about awareness. When performing a healing, it is sometimes good to have a third person in the room to send and concentrate the love energy. So you have the healer, the healee, and the third person, who will give love. How will this person give this love? He must free himself by taking the fear out of his love and then penetrating his love into yours. Let’s suppose that I am the third person, you are the healer, and then there’s the healee. I will pull the fear out of my love, open it up and get into that little space where I can sense the purity of love. When I sense the love, I will send it out to you. You might have to wait a few seconds or minutes before you feel it. I will continue to send more love in increments. After a while, you will feel your etheric hand go down into the healee’s brain, which will tell you about one of the seven levels of this addiction process. This is the power of Signature Cell Healing.
When you feel your love enter the healee, stay with it. You can heal anything with Signature Cell Healing, if you have the courage. You can do this without the third person, if you focus. Put your hand on the healee’s head or some other part of the body, depending on what you’re working on, and bring the fear out of your body, holding your hand steady. Then enter into that little space in the process and drop your love into the person. You’ll watch the healee’s entire body shift as the fear leaves his or her body. If addiction is the illness, you will know what causes it and what you need to do to heal it. It may take several sessions, but if you focus your love and alchemize all four bodies, you will achieve a healing beyond your wildest dreams.
Q: I used Signature Cell Healing on my grandson, whose asthma has improved enough for the doctor to take him off one of his medications and to say that he could use the other only when needed. I believe I used alchemy to heal my grandson. Would you speak about this please?
KIRAEL: Yes, you did have a defined effect on your grandson. You used alchemy and Signature Cell Healing to bring about this healing. At the heart of this process is getting your grandson off the medication to free him to play in the world of love and light. Your healings are one of the reasons that he’s had any results at all. The healings coupled with your prayers have brought him to where he is today. You pulled the fear out and you were left with pure love and that’s what healed him.

Put Your Golden Energy Out in Front of You
Q: How does alchemy weave with the Goddess Light?
KIRAEL: Goddess energy is the Love of the Creator. The Goddesses here are practicing their Goddess Light, which means they’re doing their best to act, speak and live as that energy. That doesn’t mean that the Goddess Lights have succeeded at it or that they’re any better or worse than anyone else. You all have Goddess energy, but those who are practicing with that energy will be ahead of the crowd. Connect with your Goddess energy by getting your gold energy out in front of you. All of the particles within you will be encased in the golden light when you get to the fourth dimension. Right now, however, you must practice encasing them in that golden light. The fourth strand of your DNA is gold. If you could cut your hand open and check your DNA, you’d see the colors of all four strands of the DNA, but the golden fourth strand is all inclusive, meaning that it contains all the other colors. When you meditate effectively, you feel this whole process. You will know you’re healing.
When Jesus walked into a crowd and put his hand on someone, he drew love from every person who was willing and put that love into the healee, who was then healed. He had the fourth strand of a sixth-dimensional being to guide the energy through the process. Jesus was able to put the gold energy of God Creator incarnate into the healee, instantaneously pulling away the fear, causing a healing.
Q: My biological family is depressed and anxious and I choose not to participate in their dramas. How do I avoid making them feel as if they’re being rejected?
KIRAEL: If they feel rejected by your comings and goings, then you’re not doing your total journey. When you can speak to your biological family without any “airy fairy” talk, and they say, “That made sense for a second,” even if they change the subject, that moment that you made sense represented your true journey. You must infuse love into your journey. So pull the fear out of your love and then say what you have to say. If you’re doing it right, they won’t feel rejected. You’ll go into that love portion of your body presence, your cellular consciousness, and you’ll pull the fear back and speak from that open space. You’ll be surprised at what you’ll say, because you’ll be speaking another language, the language of love, and they’ll hear what you’re saying for the first time. They will be caught in your love and that’s the whole journey. You’ll see it, feel it and know it. Each time you do this, you’ll pull more fear out and you’ll put even more love in and your communication will be life-altering.

Be True to Your Journey
Q: How do we use alchemy to help us understand and work with those experiencing dementia and Alzheimer’s and how do we help ourselves as we’re working with them?
KIRAEL: Alzheimer’s is a progressive, degenerative, alternative journey of love. It can be curbed by not focusing on it. When someone experiences profound memory loss, the type where the individual cannot recall his name, his address, etc., he is labeled as having Alzheimer’s and everyone reacts as if it’s a terrible thing. If you wanted to heal this person, you wouldn’t go into despair. You would say, “Wait a minute. I don’t buy what you’re saying. I can’t even see the Alzheimer’s.” So what if the person does things others refer to as strange? If you enter this journey and make a commitment to your friend or relative to make him feel good about himself every day, speaking to him in love, changing the subject from what he can’t remember to something lighter, regardless of the stage of his disease, you can bring him back. You must pull the fear out of your love and bring the individual’s attention to the beauty in life. The person with Alzheimer’s is trying to find out what he forgot. You can teach him what he forgot. Don’t ever tell him he has Alzheimer’s and is losing his mind. You’ll be feeding your ego and destroying his. Just remind him what a beautiful day it is—change the subject. This is just to start. I could spend a good hour with you just on this subject. You can do Signature Cell Healing to get into the individual’s brain and move stem cells to reverse the Alzheimer’s, but that’s another story. The alchemy portion of the healing is about loving the person as I just described.
Q: How much of the Ten Principles of Consciously Creating is an alchemy journey?
KIRAEL: Alchemy came out of Lemuria, just as the Principles did. The Ten Principles are woven into alchemy, and alchemy is woven into the Principles. To be effective with alchemy, you must be fully acquainted with and practicing the Ten Principles of Consciously Creating. They are part and parcel of each other, inseparable.
Closing Statement
Alchemy is about love. I’ve spent more time talking about love than I’ve ever done before. I cannot express enough how important love is to this journey, and I’m not talking about third-dimensional romantic love. I’m talking about the love that has no opposite. Pull out your fears and go into that little space called the magi energy and come out through love. It never, ever fails. When anger rises in your energy, don’t rush into it. Stop and try it my way. Try love.
Good evening.

Tonal Frequencies for Healing: Solfeggio Frequencies.

"Solfeggio, when used by musicians, means the ability to sight read music and sing the notes accurately (pitch wise) without the use of a musical instrument. For the purpose of this article, Solfeggio refers more to the notes of the diatonic music scale, known by everyone as "Do, Re, Mi,. etc.


I have been a musician most of my life, and math has been one of my favorite subjects since primary school days. As a 26 year old man, the Navy taught me that there is more to electricity and electronics than the "on-off" switch. When I read Dr. Len Horowitz & Dr. Joseph Puleo's "Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse" which introduced the Solfeggio Frequencies, I was hooked.

Just recently, I encountered the extended Solfeggio Frequencies (I'm not certain whether it was a joint Horowitz & Puleo effort, or individual effort) and the suggested health possibilities are astounding. Gradually, other possibilities developed in my mind (and maybe others have done the same). I try not to plagiarize others, yet I seem to get inspirational ideas beyond the work of others whom I've encounter. Do realize that all the presentations I make here are the work of Horowitz & Puleo and others. All that I am currently attempting to do is to extend the application of the Solfeggio Frequencies.

TPTB give me a difficult time via the internet; thusly these pages will be sent to you as #1 of 6, #2 of 6, etc. I seem to have less failed deliveries this way. The Solfeggio "wheels" of necessity cannot be sent as a text file. They were developed in MS Word. Sometimes Word-documents deliver without a problem, other times they are garbled. Kindly give me some feed-back as to success or failure of delivery. Do realize that the "wheels" are not of my generation, I merely re-invented the wheel in MS Word so that my archival system is consistent.

Part 1 is this cover letter; part 2 is the background as I understand and collected information about; part 3 is the dowsing verification of ideas I had about the Frequencies (in the dowse, the format is: my original text with dowse-answers in braces and hopefully those dowse-answers are in a contrasting color); parts 4 and 5 are the redrawing of the Solfeggio wheel in MS Word; and part 6 is nothing more than the math work of developing the primary harmonics developed. Parts 4 through 6 are as an attachment because it is the only means I have of forwarding the drawings.

I shared preliminary ideas with friends, who in turn suggested that I forward the materials to specific individuals. It has taken a bit of time to put it all together logically. Tim, the dowser does not reflect my opinion about the difficulty of beating TPTB at their game of control. I personally have had close encounters with the enforcers of TPTB and am still "gun shy." My logical mind says that if we are able to apply the Solfeggio Frequencies as my original dowse lead me to, those individuals could be prime targets and live miserable lives should they take the results into high profile. The reason I try to get wide publication for even preliminary information is the relative safety of many minds and individuals working on similar (if not identical) solutions; TPTB have no clues as to whom picked up on the ideas presented when published, thusly nothing to work with as counter-actions until the end results surface.

Philip N. Ledoux

In Healing Codes for the Biological apocalypse Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz and Dr. Joseph S. Puleo published the Secret Solfeggio Frequencies. Basically it is the "Doe, Rae, Mi, Fa, So, La, Ti, Doe" diatonic scale which we all learn in the first few grades of school.

Over time, the pitch of this diatonic scale has changed and somehow Horowitz and Puleo found the original pitch frequencies.

In the Solfeggio, "Ti" is missing and what we call "Doe" was known as "Ut". Here are the original pitch frequencies of these six notes:

1. Ut = 396Hz which reduces to 9 [reducing numbers: 3+9 = 12 = 1 + 2 = 3 ; 3+ 6 = 9]
2. Re = 417Hz which reduces to 3
3. Mi = 528Hz which reduces to 6
4. Fa = 639Hz which reduces to 9
5. Sol = 741Hz which reduces to 3
6. La = 852Hz which reduces to 6

They also state that Mi is for "Miracles" or 528Hz - is the exact frequency used by genetic engineers throughout the world to repair DNA.

Another interesting tidbit that the authors included as a musical scale with words, from the work of John Keely; where Keely related the hues (not pigment colors) of light related to musical notes. On the "G-Clef" with "C" being the first line below the staff and continuing up the scale and up the staff:

C = Red = Tonic
D = Orange = Super Tonic
E = Yellow = Mediant
F = Green = Sub Dominant
G = Blue = Dominant
A = Indigo = Super Dominant, Sub Mediant
B = Violet = Leading Tone, Sub Tonic
C = Red = Octave

Also included with this chart was another from the Dinshah Health Society:

Red = 397.3Hz Closest Note: G = 392Hz
Orange = 430.8 Closest Note: A = 440
Yellow = 464.4 Closest Note: A# = 466
Lemon = 497.9 Closest Note: B = 494
Green = 431.5 Closest Note: C = 523
Turquoise = 565.0 Closest Note: C# = 554
Blue = 598.6 Closest Note: D = 587
Indigo = 632.1 Closest Note: D# = 622
Violet = 665.7 Closest Note: E = 659
Purple = 565.0 (reverse polarity) Closest Note: A# and E = 562 (both reverse polarity)
Magenta = 531.5 (reverse polarity) Closest Note: G and E =525 (both reverse polarity)
Scarlet = 497.9 (reverse polarity) Closest Note: G# and D = 501 (both reverse polarity)
From www.lightwithin.com this additional information is gleaned:

The Six Solfeggio Frequencies include:

UT - 396 Hz - Liberating Guilt and Fear
RE - 417 Hz - Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change
MI - 528 Hz - Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair)
FA - 639 Hz - Connecting/Relationships
SOL - 741 Hz - Awakening Intuition
LA - 852 Hz - Returning to Spiritual Order

The basic Solfeggio frequencies totaled six (6). Horowitz continued his search through the years andextended it to 9 frequencies. 'Most everyone is familiar with the Star of David which uses two triangles (inverted to each other) inscribed within a circle. If one uses the same approach for three trianglesoverlapping (no inversions) and space them approximately 40 degrees apart around a circle, some amazing relationships appear. Orient the circle with one triangle apex at North or zero degrees. Label that 396. At the next clockwise point label 417, the next 528, the next 639, the next 741 and the last 852. You now have the basic six Solfeggio frequencies.

The numbers we have so far added to our circle of numbers have a pattern to them: Any number connected by a line, for example 396 and 639, if you take the smaller number and move the last digit to the first position, you have created the line-linked number. [move the 6 of 396 to the front and you have 639] Likewise 417 by moving the 7 creates 741, both numbers are line linked. And 528 by moving the 8 creates 852 both numbers line linked.

As created so far, we have 3 missing numbers, but they can easily be created by applying this moving of digits positions. Take the triangle that has 396 and 639. If we take the 9 and move it to the first position we have 963, which is one of the extended Solfeggio frequencies! Thusly we can now continue the circle one more position by adding 963. Applying this same logic to the 417 and 741 triangle to fill in the missing number we move the 1 to the first position to develop 174 which is another extended Solfeggio number. Continuing clockwise add 174 to the number sequence. And the 528 and 852 triangle if we move the 2 to the first position we have 285, the final missing extended Solfeggio number. So elegantly simple.

Take a piece of paper and lightly grid it off for a large "tic-tac-toe" game. Across the top place the smallest number in the upper left corner; continue horizontally with the line-linked (triangle) numbers 417, 741. In the middle line, left position place the second in clockwise numbering (285), continue horizontally with its line-linked numbers 528, 852. The last horizontal line starts 396 and continues 639, 963. Now for some surprises. Compute the difference between all the vertical row numbers; they are all 111. Compute the differences between the horizontal row numbers; left row and center row all = 243 and center row to right row differences are all 324. And here we go again with the move the last digit to the first position move the 3 of 243 to the front and we have 324.

174 <- dif: 243 -> 417 <- dif: 324 -> 741
dif: 111 dif: 111 dif: 111
285 <- dif: 243 -> 528 <- dif: 324 -> 852
dif: 111 dif: 111 dif: 111
396 <- dif: 111 -> 639 <- dif: 324 -> 963

The end result of all this or summation is the simple fact that you need to remember only two numbers: 174 and 111, and remember the principle of 3 overlapping triangles so that their points are about 40 degrees apart creating nine points around a circle and moving the last digit to the first position.

Harmonic Sums

Once the diagram is set, and 174 is placed in any starting position, move the last digit to the first position creating 417 which is the next number (clockwise) in the triangle, then move 7 to the first position creating 741 which is the last number in the triangle. This connects 174, 417 and 741. The next step is to add111 to 174 which gives 285; this becomes the next clockwise number from 174. Now move the last digit to the first position creating 528 of this triangle and so on to complete the total 9 frequencies and their relative positions. Logical, sequential and amazingly simple!

One does not need to be a number genius, nor a math PhD to recognize that there must be something special to this numbering sequence of the extended Solfeggio numbers. Horowitz places 528 in the center of the circle with the words "LOVE" and "THANKS." I am not thoroughly conversant with the application of these numbers. Horowitz and Puleo state that these numbers are the key to creation and destruction. On other sites, it is implied that one should apply the real frequencies to the corresponding points on the circle we constructed, I assume a metallic plate. With the equipment that most people have available, only one frequency at a time can be generated. Thusly, 9 different frequencies at their appropriate points for equal amounts of time. I personally wonder what would happen if one would apply 9 frequency generators to their respective points all operating simultaneously.

Gaia's Earthquake Newsletter (Pepper Lewis)

Here's the newsletter message I received from Pepper. Passing it on.

"The earth's body is a multi-layered, multi-dimensional vessel. The earth's crust consists of layers of energy that look and feel solid because of the density of the energy, but they are not. Your own body also appears quite solid and is not. Land mass seems as if it is separated into continents, countries and other arbitrary boundaries. It would be more accurate to think in terms of small islands of varying size and shape that are adjacent to each other rather than joined together. This is not meant to make you feel less safe, but to give you a deeper understanding of how your home is arranged.

Unseen bands of energy travel above and below the surface of the earth, guided by intelligent forces of nature. My body is not so different from yours. Beneath your skin layers of muscle and bone expand and contract, build and rebuild, performing several functions at once. What guides your body to develop as it does? Who or what instructs it to regenerate, rejuvenate or repair its health?

Those who study earthquakes would do well to set aside historical data in favor of a progressional study that takes into account how fault lines transfer energy from one zone to another, making areas more or less active. Some of the instruments already in use can be adapted to serve other purposes. Current technology does not yet allow for accurate prediction of earthquakes, but "trend research" is already sophisticated enough to be reliable. Just as satellites observe the formation of hurricanes, other probes placed at strategic points below the surface of the earth could do the same.

2010 will have more earthquakes than usual and some of these will be in places previously considered less likely in this regard. More of these can be expected near coastlines and at depths that are nearer the surface. Areas nearer the equator are also at greater risk. Gases escaping from undersea volcanoes, crevices and gaps are redirecting the flow of energy and creating new patterns. It is the earth's job to do this, do you see? One of the earth's most important functions is to create and preserve life, even when what you see on the surface looks entirely different.

Live compassionately and assess each day on it's own merit. Whenever possible begin and end each day with a note of acknowledgment for having lived well, rather than a sigh of relief for having survived only to repeat the same tasks tomorrow. Do not use your last thought, your last breath or your last bit of kindness. Reserve a little each day so that in unexpected moments you will have care, consideration and empathy for those who need it most."

Learn from the Old Ways, listen to our Ancestors.

Artist: Kirby Sattler

Native American Traditional Code of Ethics
This article is from the "Inter-Tribal Times" - October 1994

1. Each morning upon rising, and each evening before sleeping, give thanks for the life within you and for all life, for the good things the Creator has given you and for the opportunity to grow a little more each day. Consider your thoughts and actions of the past day and seek for the courage and strength to be a better person. Seek for the things that will benefit others (everyone).

2. Respect: Respect means "To feel or show honor or esteem for someone or something; to consider the well being of, or to treat someone or something with deference or courtesy". Showing respect is a basic law of life.
a) Treat every person from the tiniest child to the oldest elder with respect at all times.
b) Special respect should be given to Elders, Parents, Teachers, and Community Leaders.
c) No person should be made to feel "put down" by you; avoid hurting other hearts as you would avoid a deadly poison.
d) Touch nothing that belongs to someone else (especially Sacred Objects) without permission, or an understanding between you.
e) Respect the privacy of every person, never intrude on a person's quiet moment or personal space.
f) Never walk between people that are conversing.
g) Never interrupt people who are conversing.
h) Speak in a soft voice, especially when you are in the presence of Elders, strangers or others to whom special respect is due.
i) Do not speak unless invited to do so at gatherings where Elders are present (except to ask what is expected of you, should you be in doubt).
j) Never speak about others in a negative way, whether they are present or not.
k) Treat the earth and all of her aspects as your mother. Show deep respect for the mineral world, the plant world, and the animal world. Do nothing to pollute our Mother, rise up with wisdom to defend her.
l) Show deep respect for the beliefs and religion of others.
m) Listen with courtesy to what others say, even if you feel that what they are saying is worthless. Listen with your heart.
n) Respect the wisdom of the people in council. Once you give an idea to a council meeting it no longer belongs to you. It belongs to the people. Respect demands that you listen intently to the ideas of others in council and that you do not insist that your idea prevail. Indeed you should freely support the ideas of others if they are true and good, even if those ideas are quite different from the ones you have contributed. The clash of ideas brings forth the Spark of Truth.

3. Once a council has decided something in unity, respect demands that no one speak secretly against what has been decided. If the council has made an error, that error will become apparent to everyone in its own time.

4. Be truthful at all times, and under all conditions.

5. Always treat your guests with honor and consideration. Give of your best food, your best blankets, the best part of your house, and your best service to your guests.

6. The hurt of one is the hurt of all, the honor of one is the honor of all.

7. Receive strangers and outsiders with a loving heart and as members of the human family.

8. All the races and tribes in the world are like the different colored flowers of one meadow. All are beautiful. As children of the Creator they must all be respected.

9. To serve others, to be of some use to family, community, nation, and the world is one of the main purposes for which human beings have been created. Do not fill yourself with your own affairs and forget your most important talks. True happiness comes only to those who dedicate their lives to the service of others.

10. Observe moderation and balance in all things.

11. Know those things that lead to your well-being, and those things that lead to your destruction.

12. Listen to and follow the guidance given to your heart. Expect guidance to come in many forms; in prayer, in dreams, in times of quiet solitude, and in the words and deeds of wise Elders and friends.
