by Tim Miejan God. The Almighty. Elohim. Allah. The Creator. Jehovah. Yahweh. The Supreme Being. Adonai. Brahman. Many names exist for the Divine intelligence that created all that is, and just as many belief systems exist for the worship of God — and denying the existence of God. Many people of many faiths believe the individual soul is saved by praising God and doing “His” will, while others do not believe — like noted lawyer Clarence Darrow who said he does not believe in God, “because I do not believe in Mother Goose.” Belief or non-belief in God says nothing about a person’s character, or a person’s sense of morality. Witness the laundry list of preachers who cry from the pulpit to elicit a response from the flock and yet break the very commandments they teach, and consider the Bible-thumping lawmakers who display little tolerance for those in need. Many souls who do not believe in God also do things to benefit humankind — Sir Richard Branson, Stephen Hawking, Kurt Vonnegut, Isaac Asimov and Mark Twain, for example. What I constantly wonder is why believers attribute human attributes and motivations to God, which in my opinion is an energy or force that is both indescribable and unknowable. Sri Harold Klemp of Eckankar, in his Edge article this month, says God is love. That’s probably as close as we can get to describing God, using our limited human intelligence. But some insist on telling us that they know what God thinks, as if God is a man who is invisible and lives somewhere up in the sky.

Case in point: men who play sports for a living. Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, when asked if he thought God cares about football, said, “Yeah. I think God cares about football. I think God cares about everything he created.” Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said this eight months ago, in response to Wilson: “I don’t think God cares a whole lot about the outcome. He cares about the people involved, but I don’t think he’s a big football fan.” However, in a recent victory over Wilson’s Seahawks, Rodgers said, “And then getting help from God. I think God was a Packer’s fan tonight, so he was taking care of us.” But do people really know the intention of God? Author Michael Crichton said, “I think everyone who says he knows God’s intention is showing a lot of very human ego.” Women’s rights activist Susan B. Anthony said, “I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires.” I had a dream the other night in which the car I was driving was on the verge of rolling over. In that instant, I proclaimed, “God save me!” and the seatbelt suddenly released, the door swung open and I knew I had to jump out and lie flat on the ground, which I did. The car flipped over without touching me and I was safe. Perhaps God does listen. Or, perhaps we are a living, breathing embodiment of the Creator, and we save ourselves — in his name.a Tim Miejan is editor and co-publisher of The Edge.

Health Freedom advocates gathering for national summit Health freedom is the goal of many organizations and countless individuals, and the National Health Freedom Congress (NHFC) is bringing many of them together in one place to get to know each other. The 10th annual, three-day event will take place October 18-20 at the Hamline University Anderson Center in St. Paul. It is sponsored by the Minnesota-based National Health Freedom Coalition (NHFC). The Congress is open to the public for registration. People can attend for the entire three-day event, interacting with national leaders that are having a lasting impact on our health care choices, or attend just the health freedom awards banquet and keynote speaker. Keynote speaker, Brian Hooker, Ph.D., P.E., is the nationally-renowned health freedom citizen who investigated fraud and malfeasance in the Centers for Disease Control’s vaccine safety program, and, most recently, uncovered blatant scientific misconduct through the CDC whistle-blower Dr. William Thompson. The cost is: $25 for the Keynote talk only on Tuesday evening; $60 for the Keynote talk and banquet; and $195 for all events Sunday through Tuesday. Health freedom is the inalienable right of all people to access the health care products, practitioners, and truthful information that they need for their own health and well-being. Groups are working on different facets of health freedom — protecting us from mercury in dentistry, electromagnetic radiation, and other toxic exposures. Others on ensuring the right of parents to have vaccine exemptions, or 8 www.edgemagazine.net
the right to choose alternative therapies for their children. Some organizations, like Minnesota-based National Health Freedom Action, are working to ensure the right of holistic practitioners to practice, and the Organic Consumers Association works to maintain organic standards, and ensure labeling of GMOs. Thes National Health Freedom Congress and National Health Freedom Coalition were born out of the Minnesota movement in the 1990s to ensure consumer access to holistic practitioners. The successful passage of MN Statute 146A, which gave unlicensed practitioners an exemption from the medical practice act, led to calls from all over the country to Diane Miller, J.D., an attorney who was a key drafter and lobbyist of that bill. They were asking for help in passing similar legislation in their states. NHFC and NHFA were launched in 2001. Today, 10 states have a safe harbor or similar bill that protects access to holistic practitioners. NHFC has a passion to increase solidarity in the broad spectrum of the health freedom movement. “We all want to protect the right of people to have what they need to be well, and that sometimes means fighting for our right to choose our own healing path, to have accurate information, to decline treatments, or to avoid toxic substances,” Miller said.

I hear the Dream by Rebecca Braun
I hear the dream, listening, it tells me a tale. The road has many stones, and you must gather, the stones that make you feel beautiful, magical, useful, and loved. Your beauty will shine when all you know is balanced in time. The magic of your soul will lift you to the heavens, if light be your goal. Hands that will give love to others will let you live,
His ego pranced in front of me How dare I tell the truth What could I do about it anyway The damage he created Is from his own doing As I sat and listened to his wrath I wondered if he still thinks it’s worth it Just then his spirit peeked out aside him “I’m scared to live inside this body the hurt it unleashes ricochets inside I try to lead him to the Light but fear and greed lead him away” At that moment I looked at him again I felt compassion for his soul. a Maria Lisa Polegatto grew up and lives in Nova Scotia, Canada, where she works full time.

and love will find you intertwining with the path, the universal view. Let music be your guide the pen be raised, the Lord be praised. Don’t fear your shadow, follow all that is light. Don’t miss your chance, listen long into the night. I hear the dream, am I strong enough to follow the call?

Imagination — from a Kundalini perspective by Chrism “Oh, it’s just your imagination!” How many times have we heard this admonition? All through our lives we have received the denigration of the “imagination” as a storehouse of false experience. Because the imagination is also a focus for the fantastic and the fantasies of wish and wonder and the threshold of the dream world, a great attempt has been made to ground a person in the everyday five-sense physical world by parents all around the world. They are correct to do so. Being in the physical world requires attentiveness and the ability to move through the dense physical environment with confidence and intelligence. However, the imaginative world isn’t quite what our parents may have considered it to be, from a Kundalini perspective. Yes, we can fantasize and daydream, but we can also create and we can also open to areas beyond the fantasies and beyond the creating into venues that allow us access to remote viewing and experiencing visions, etc. Imagination is the first step into visualization, which has a better reputation. release the doubs
I suggest that as Kundalini people we can cultivate the imagination and release the doubts that we have been programmed with regarding its use. I participated in a healing the other day and asked someone what they were seeing. Every time I asked this question, the person answered, “I don’t see anything.” Over and over this occurred until the person finally said, “Well, I imagine I see…” — all because they didn’t have any confidence or belief that what they were seeing in the mind’s eye was anything close to being accurate. This is the fruit of the invalidation by society of the creative and imaginative senses. It is necessary to use this faculty for the discernment of the metaphysical. This doesn’t mean you go out and create an experience. Nor does it mean you are making anything up. It does mean that you are using the senses that God gave you to develop and discern that which isn’t available to the physical eye. Anyone inside of the Kundalini can attest that not everything they experience is able to be viewed by anyone other than themselves. Floating lights are one example, among many. The imaginative qualities are the basis for activities other than visualization. Empathy, telepathy, clairvoyance, clairau-
dience, psychokinesis and healing all have components that begin to be realized in the same areas where the imagination exists. When one doubts the imagination, all other qualities in the same locale are also denigrated. This is why so much second guessing of personally experienced phenomena takes place by people inside of the Kundalini. They simply cannot believe that this fantastic experience is happening, due to the invalidation of a belief or experience that incorporates the existence of the fantastic. The fantastic is right next door to the imagination. the dream life
Kundalini often communicates to the activated person through the dream life. Dreams are another area of mistrust, due to the fantastic nature of the expression. The Sennoi are a tribe of indigenous people who live by the interpretation of their dreams. Their children are taught to understand, respect and honor their dreams. Every morning the tribe gathers to discuss the night’s dreams, and these dreams are taken seriously. Read Patricia Garfield’s book on dreams and you will read more about the Sennoi. Pay attention to your imagination — not as a tool of creation, even though it can be used that way, but also as a threshold into the areas of the divine communication that don’t manipulate the body here or there, as often happens with the Kundalini. Imagination is far more subtle than direct physicality. Use the imagination as a platform for healing and visualization and end the separation from truth and the invalidation of experiences attributed to it. the very clear
Allow the imagination to open you to the very clear and resonant areas of the Kundalini. Kundalini is the bridge between the two worlds, according to Shamanic lore — and in the other world, what you think or imagine is as real there as a city bus is here. a Chrism is another person like you, a consciousness clothed in flesh, who uses a set of protocols called the Safeties that he uses to guide students in a loving and safe manner through the Kundalini process. He is offering a seminar in the Twin Cities in November 2015. For more information, contact Rosemary at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651.329.9615. Visit www. KundaliniAwakeningSystems1.com.

Ancient Wisdom for Today An interview with Eckankar President Peter Skelskey
by Tim Miejan Peter Skelskey, president of Eckankar and a member of its board of trustees, is a world traveler, lecture, and a member of the clergy at the Temple of ECK — Eckankar’s world spiritual center in Chanhassen, Minn. As president, he assists the spiritual leader of Eckankar, Sri Harold Klemp, with bringing the ECK teachings to people in more than 130 countries. Skelskey spoke with The Edge at this time to highlight the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of Eckankar, and the 25th anniversary of the Temple of ECK, a place of worship for all people who love God. These events will be celebrated on October 23-25 at the 2015 ECK Worldwide Seminar at the Minneapolis Convention Center. The seminar will include workshops, roundtables and spiritual discussions, as well as a main program on Saturday evening featuring the spiritual leader of Eckankar, Sri Harold Klemp. “These seminars are always an uplifting and life-changing experience for me,” Skelskey said. The public also is invited to an open house at the Temple of ECK from noon to 4 p.m. on October 23-24. The temple is located at 7450 Powers Blvd., Chanhassen, Minn. What is the purpose of Eckankar and the ECK teachings? Peter Skelskey: Eckankar teaches us how to
recognize and accept God’s love in our lives. We learn how to accept this love fully and to be a vehicle for God’s love. All people are Soul, and we are all children of God, regardless of whether we are on a spiritual or religious path or on no path. We learn to respect each other as Soul with unconditional love. God is love, and, as Soul, we are too. Our main purpose is receiving and giving God’s love to all life. We learn how the spiritual laws of the worlds of creation work, and how we can work with them to function as a co-worker with life. Eckankar, as a religion, provides the means for an individual to find more meaning in life, and to understand what God’s love is through a gradual unfoldment in spiritual consciousness. This unfoldment eventually leads to ending the rounds of birth and death on Earth known as reincarnation.
Tell us about the history of the ECK teachings and the Light and Sound of God. PS: Throughout the history of mankind, 12 www.edgemagazine.net
from this physical world and move upward on our journey home to God. What distinguishes Eckankar from other religious movements? PS: In Eckankar, we have the Living ECK
Master, a living teacher. There has been a Living ECK Master since the beginning of mankind on earth. He keeps the teachings of ECK, the Light and Sound of God, pure. He brings the truth of this teaching to fit the consciousness of the world as it is during the period he is the Living ECK Master. Today, this teacher is Sri Harold Klemp. “Sri” is a title of respect. His full title is the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master. The Mahanta is the inner part of him that teaches us during our contemplations and can take us on a spiritual journey during our dreams. The Living ECK Master is the outer part of him that teaches through talks and writings.
there have always been highly spiritual beings known as the Vairagi Masters who have taught those Souls who wanted to know: Who am I? Why am I here? These Souls were ready to know about the teachings of the Light and Sound of God. The teachings were most often taught one-onone, Master with student. In the middle of the 20th century, an openness in society’s consciousness arose. Paul Twitchell, the modern-day founder of Eckankar, was chosen to bring the ECK teachings to the public for people who were searching for more of God’s love in their lives. This marked the beginning of Eckankar in today’s era. Harold Klemp, the current spiritual leader of Eckankar, is the author of over 100 books on living life in the Sound and Light of God. The Light and Sound is the essence of God, which is the ECK. They are the two parts of creation that bring life all together. They are also known as the Holy Spirit, or divine love. In Eckankar, we learn to contemplate and inwardly contact the inner Light and Sound of God to help us in our daily life. The Light and Sound help us to better understand who we are and why we’re here. Eventually, we become aware that we are a part of this Light and Sound of God, as an atom of divine love. We realize this lifetime is a journey of experience, and we learn how to live in this world and be a part of God’s creation, serving all of life. Our main goal is to gain spiritual freedom
What is Soul Travel, and how does an individual who practices the art of Soul Travel benefit from it in his or her daily life? PS: Soul Travel is an experience in contem-
plation during a spiritual exercise or in a dream experience, where you are lifted up above the physical element. You then see life from a greater perspective and see what is the next step to take that will help you in your spiritual unfoldment and/or in your daily life. Soul Travel helps you lose your fear of life in the physical world as you see how you also have life on other planes of existence. In your personal life, or at work, school, etc., Soul Travel gives you a sense of calmness and an understanding that life is much greater than just this physical existence — that, as Soul, life is eternal. Through Soul Travel you gain experience in the heavenly worlds. You get some idea of the many different levels of heaven. This inner experience gives you a conscious connection with all life. It helps you experience life with joy and the understanding that God’s love is everywhere and we all exist because of God’s love for Soul. Tell us about the HU chant that you use in Eckankar. PS: The HU chant, or HU song, is a simple
spiritual exercise that anyone can use to raise their consciousness to experience God’s love. The HU is the most ancient name for God, not God Itself. When HU is sung out loud or quietly to yourself, it opens you to help from the Holy Spirit.
When you sing HU, first fill your heart with the love of God. The HU becomes a love song to God, a spiritual exercise, or unconditional prayer. While singing HU, you are not asking God for anything. You’re saying that you are willing to accept whatever needs to be in your life. You’re saying, “Not my will, but Thy will be done.” This is true prayer, allowing God and the Holy Spirit to enter your life and lift you to a state of solace. The HU is the most precious gift that God has given to each of us as Soul. The HU can be used by anyone of any faith who is in pain or in need of love, comfort, or spiritual guidance. The HU can heal a broken heart and lift the consciousness of all who sing it. Is there a goal for ECKists in terms of spiritual growth, such as enlightenment or total awareness? PS: One of the main goals is Self-
Realization. We discover that we are Soul. We don’t have a soul; we are Soul. We learn the validity of life, that life is a continuum. We reincarnate, gaining in enlightenment and awareness, until we ultimately become God-Realized and a co-worker with God. We become simply a vehicle for the Holy Spirit, which is the Light and Sound of God. We live our lives according to the laws of divine love, which are unconditional. We learn, as a vehicle for God’s love, to do God’s will. This is revealed to us as we surrender our beingness to God. We reach a point where it is most loving, most desirable, and most joyful to live in God’s love. Our desires in life become desireless love. We do whatever Spirit would have us do in service to all life. I understand that Eckankar does not proselytize, but presents its teachings to the individual to make a choice to study them or not. How many people currently practice the teachings of Eckankar? PS: Eckankar’s membership numbers
have continued to rise over the years, and we now have ECKists in over 130 countries worldwide. There are also many people around the world who have benefited from the ECK teachings and remain members of their religion. This is a main benefit of the ECK teachings. They can help people establish a better relationship with God regardless of what religion they follow. a For more information on Eckankar, visit the Temple of Eck at 7450 Powers Blvd., Chanhassen, Minn., call 952.380.2200 and visit www.eckankar.org.

god is love by Sri Harold Klemp Second of 3-part series Everybody knows that God is love. It’s very easy to say. But if people who say they believe this principle would hold to it and practice it in their everyday lives, this would be a better world. This is the main divine law of all laws: simply, God is love. The second of the two great laws is: Soul exists because God loves It. And that’s it. The information age has opened up so many subjects that used to be taboo. Not so many years ago, dreams were held in very low regard. But now people are starting to accept dreams. Television has broadcast so many shows about near-death experiences that people are getting quite accustomed to hearing about light, beings of light, and modern manifestations of angels. They don’t need to rely on someone’s account of a saint who lived three centuries ago or more. One morning I was up at four o’clock, and the host on one of the local radio stations told about a dream experience he had had just a short time before. He called it a profound dream. He’d been having financial difficulties, and he didn’t know quite how to resolve them. So he went on a camping trip with a friend, because when he got to the great outdoors, he felt he was in God’s garden. It gave him a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday living and look at himself, reexamine his values, and see who and what he really was. One night while out camping, he had a dream with his departed grandmother. He woke up in the dream, and she was in the kitchen. She handed him a catalog. She pointed to it, saying, “It can solve your financial problems.” When he woke up he told his friend about this dream, then forgot all about it. But his financial worries were still troubling him. All he needed was about $2,000 to resolve them. Then he remembered the catalog that his grandmother had shown him in the dream. There was a circle around the picture of an Italian motorbike, a Lambretta. It was just like the old one he
had in the garage. But it didn’t make any sense. Two months later, the man was talking to someone, and he happened to mention that he had this old motorbike sitting in the garage. He hadn’t used it for years, but it was in good condition. The friend asked him what kind it was. “A Lambretta,” he said. “What year?” When the man told him, his friend said, “That thing’s worth about $2,000.” All of a sudden the man said, “Two thousand — the magic number.” And just that quickly his dream came back to him. This is how the spiritual truths are making their way out into today’s society. Why did his grandmother help him? Because she loved him. We come back to the principle: God is love. And the second one: Soul exists because God loves It. Because God loves Soul, Souls should love each other. Or as Christ said, “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” He didn’t say to hate yourself, wear a hair shirt, and treat your neighbor better than yourself. No, he was speaking about Soul to Souls. He was telling them, “You are God’s creation. But so is your neighbor.” This is a point that has been missed in so many religious teachings in churches today. Love yourself because God loves you, and love your neighbor as yourself. It’s very simple. a Sri Harold Klemp will speak at the ECK Worldwide Seminar at 7 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 24, at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

Higher Realms Reconnections: A Pleiadian Seminar with Christine Day Leading spiritual teacher, healer, channel and author Christine Day returns this October with new initiations from the Pleiadians during “Higher Realm Reconnections,” a three-day Pleiadian Seminar taking place October 30 to November 1 at Ramada Mall of America in Bloomington, MN. “The Pleiadians are bringing initiations from the higher realms for the first time,” Day says. “We as a human race are ready for this amazing life-changing opportunity. These higher realm initiations will take you on your unique awakening journey that will open your vision, moving you beyond the limited reality of life. Experience yourself from a new perspective through a series of direct experiences that will enable you to begin living and utilizing an aspect of your energy that was previously untapped within you before.” She says an aspect of the higher realm initiation is the opening of four new energetic centers that will transform your energetic system within your physical and energetic body. “There will be a re-positioning of your DNA strands, creating a realignment to aspects of your higher self, opening a clarity and understanding of your life now, empowering you to take your next step,” she says. “The systems of your body will go through a cellular rejuvenation as you anchor new aspects of light within your cells, simultaneously there will be a release of old dense sabotaging patterns leaving your body. Work with the Pleiadians, Lemurians and the pure loving energies of Mother Mary and the Christ energy.” The Seminar takes place from 1-6 p.m. on October 30-31, and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on November 1 at the Ramada Mall of America, 2300 American Blvd. E., Bloomington. Admission is $425 ($375 before Sept.30). The evening before the start of the Pleiadian Seminar, at 7 p.m. on October 29, a Transmission of Light event with Christine Day will take place at the site of the seminar. The public is invited to receive an awakening of your Heart through this pure, powerful Transmission of Light. In a Transmission, Christine channels a message from the Pleiadians, which is guided and relevant in the moment. The cost for the Transmission of Light is $28.

energy shifts for evolution A Pleiadian Message
by Christine Day Beloved ones we greet you. The winds of change are bringing strong transformational experiences to your earth plane. In the last week of September, there was a further opening within the dimensional split and at that moment another monumental energetic shift took place on your planet. This shift creates a huge potential for mankind to take a giant step in your evolution. This energetic shift offers a new way of being for all those of you that seek Truth beyond the 3rd dimensional drama. Many new dimensional dynamics are anchoring on your earth plane to support you in your transitional journey to the higher aspects of Self. The “Christed energy” that birthed here on the earth plane mid-August is strongly impacting many of you, enabling you to begin to move away from many of the 3rd dimensional illusions that have kept you in a separated state from yourselves. ‘The Christed Energy’
Our term, the “Christed energy,” is the Christ energy in action, which brings a frequency beyond the 3rd dimensional illusion. This sacred energy carries the self-resurrection and receivership energy, and as it has anchored on your planet, it is breaking down all the old armoring that you have carried for lifetimes, allowing them to simply fall away and liberating you from old sabotaging patterns in your life. The receivership energies assist you in being able to fully receive through your heart all the love the “Christed energy” brings forth. Through the anchoring of this element of “Christed energy,” other significant energetic changes are taking place now on the earth plane like never before. A shift has taken place in the series of dimensional flow patterns that have been anchored here on your planet for lifetimes. These old light flow patterns have held the 3rd dimensional illusion steady and anchored on the planet. This has kept humanity in a separated state of illusion; but now, through this shift of the “Christed energy,” a dramatic change comes as these old patterns finally begin to disintegrate. A series of new dimensional flow patterns have begun to birth. These expanded dimensional flow patterns that are emerging through the dimensional doorways are carrying a pure consciousness of light that holds the Truth of this time. This energy comes in the form of an imprint that can be received by you through your heart center. These imprints carry a form of awakening energy that supports you to move into a new state of awareness. Each one of these
flow patterns is creating a series of multidimensional pathways for you to access and then align. These pathways are designed to enable you to directly access Truth and an expanded vision of who you are within the collective God Consciousness state. These moments of Truth can now be experienced within your consciousness. Light pathways
Each one of you has the potential within the space of your heart to connect to these light pathways. You have the ability to reach forward with your consciousness within your heart to align through to this new essential aspect of your self as you connect to these light pathways. These connections will open you to new perceptions of your self, almost moving your vision so that you begin to see things from a very different perspective within your life. Through this shift you will begin to grow into a new understanding of your connections to the full Universal Principles, and begin to directly experience your place within the universal consciousness. These individual pathways of light flow are designed to allow you to begin to experience your self on an unlimited level, where you can begin to access and channel into your life your own sacred light flow. This is part of the grand plan. So wherever you are, whatever you are doing, as you consciously open up through your heart space you will feel a new expression of vibration, which is your light flow unfolding within you. A dimensional shift will open within you as you simply align to your heart, one moment of just being within an ordinary moment of your life, the next to moving into an extraordinary experience within a multi-dimensional moment of unlimited potential. By opening up consciously and anchoring your awareness through your heart space, you can begin to align into the moment. That means that you are just breathing into your physical connection to your heart, placing your hand on your heart, bringing your full awareness to your heart, placing your breath “like a soft wind” into your heart space. As you take this conscious step, the light patterns will begin to naturally
realign through you, bringing you into this expanded experience and aligning you to the “Christed energy.” These new dimensional light patterns are creating a further mirror of the “Christed energy.” This mirroring brings support for you to open into your natural potential. As you align to your heart space, there is an acceleration of the recognition and understanding of your own innate power and creation energy. This is accessed through your conscious choice action of opening into a state of selfacceptance. The conscious choice action of self-acceptance naturally aligns you to the moment, moving yourself beyond the state of separation within you. As you begin to align to an acceptance of all that you are in this moment, there is a natural process of reuniting to your higher being. In that one moment the cells of your body register the conscious act of the energy of self-acceptance that holds the frequency of pure love. All the cells of your body anchor this frequency of truth in that moment. In this sacred moment of time, a pathway of light is birthed on the planet through your action of Truth. Natural birthing of love
The action of moving beyond separation allows this natural birthing of love to be anchored within each cell of your body. Love brings healing to the physical body. This whole transformation process is the power of the action of self-acceptance being realized within you. We call this process sacred, because it ultimately brings you into a state of reunion. Let us give you a picture — a giant mandala. This mandala is held at the very center of the universe, where the Collective God Consciousness exists within the universe. Each one of you has a unique place within this mandala. Your very being is a precious jewel within the mandala. You are regarded as sacred by the entire collective consciousness. As you move into those moments of self-acceptance, your place within the mandala automatically begins to pulsate with your unique
frequency. Your cells then can begin to realign. Like a “heart beat of light,” they begin to pulse towards your place within the mandala. Your place lights up and acts as a beacon of light, reflecting and drawing you forward to align to the sacred communion elements held within the Collective God consciousness. As you begin to align to your place within the collective framework of the Universal Consciousness, a quickening takes place within the whole framework of the mandala. Each jeweled place becomes uniquely more expanded by your self-realized process of self-acceptance. Your individual action, of one moment of selfacceptance, impacts the entire universe. Dimensional shifts
The universal community is changing in a dynamic way at this time like never before in the history of the Universe. This change is because of the huge transformational dimensional shifts that are opening up on your earth plane. Your planet’s transformation is impacting all of the universal structures. This is a good thing. We, and all of the universe, have been waiting for you to join the collective process. You are needed here. Your presence, your divine frequency, is necessary to complete the whole within the mandala. Because so many unique dynamics are taking place within your Earth plane, multi-dimensional energetic templates are being created now to help realign these energetic changes. These templates are manifesting stability within the energetic system of the earth plane as these shifts are taking place. This stability is enabling your earth plane to continue to complete its cycles of ongoing transformation. These cycles include the energetic transformation of the earth plane and the anchoring of dimensional grids to support the unfolding transition of consciousness within your humanity. You may not perceive that humanity’s consciousness is transforming, however it is. see Shifts on page 16 October 2015 the edge 15
continued from p. 15
There are many groups of you that are transitioning quickly into the higher reams of your consciousness. Each one of you, individually, is making the difference. You are an essential component of this transition and it is through the work that you are individually doing within your self that is impacting strongly the changing consciousness of humanity. Divine Frequency
It is important for you to understand that each one of you are an individual divine frequency of light that impacts and creates this huge shift within the Universe through your place within the collective mandala. As you further transition away from the 3rd dimensional illusion and move into your place within the universal consciousness through conscious choice, you reunite with your pure source higher self. Your process of self-acceptance deepens your heart connection and opens the doorway to letting go of so much suffering. Releasing the energy of suffering from your heart that has been there for lifetimes reopens a doorway of renewal for your spiritual life. This shift in your heart will allow you to breathe and flow into new experience, bringing you into a direct alignment to the moment, just you and your heart with your breath. Simple. Another aspect of linking into these changing dimensional light flow pathways is that you can move outside the boundaries of your limited perception of time. Know that time is one of the greatest 3rd dimensional limitations on this earth plane. This illusion of time has kept you in a separated state, kept you from the truth of being in the moment and taking your place fully within each experience. A multi-dimensional time line has now been opened up by these expanded dimensional light flow pathways. This time line extends to the present moment and moves forward and backward in time. A Truth: all experiences exist simultaneously. Every experience is simply separated by different multi-dimensional states. We call you forward at this time to come and join us in the new experience with the light paths that are available for each one of you at 16 www.edgemagazine.net
this time. It is the time to move forward utilizing all the opportunities that have been designed for you to begin a different path within your self. The energies are here like never before on your planet. The “Christed energy” is here to support your movement of selfresurrection and moving you into a place of receivership within your heart center. The light paths are waiting to connect through your open heart as you choose to align with your conscious breath. We are here to witness you in your transformational steps. All is ready. This is your sacred time to move forward to meet your self in integrity and love. Self-acceptance is your journey of Truth with your self — a meeting place within your own heart where you can fully exist! THE PROCESS
You can call forth the “Christed energy” into your heart center. This is a simple process of transformation through conscious choice:
Bring your hands to your heart.
Bring your Conscious breath into your heart.
Bring your awareness into your heart.
There is a sacred sound that draws forward the “Christed energy” into your heart. Sound: AE SHUN TAH. Bring this sound into your heart after using steps 1- 3. Fill your heart with this sound and breathe, let go.
Align to the Light Paths through your heart. Sound: EE SUN TAH. Bring this sound into your heart after using steps 1-4. Fill your heart with this sound and let go and become the sound.
We are with you witnessing your transformation. We hold the gateways open for you to enter. Blessings, The Pleiadians a Christine Day is a leading spiritual teacher, healer, channel and author.

A Meditation: Finding peace, presence by connecting with Earth by Marianne Soucy As nature becomes more rare, and cities and human gatherings grow, many of us lose our connection with nature — and thus with ourselves, with the stillness and peace within that is the core of our being. In this article I will first share a Sacred Spirit Journey with insights from my spirit guide about connecting with the Earth as a way to connect with your soul, and then I will share a short “meditation in nature.” A Sacred Journey
As I begin the journey, I find myself walking in a forest with my spirit guide. I notice the trees, the green leaves, the sunlight, the insects, birds singing, the smell of nature — and a stillness founded in the deep peace of nature. My spirit guide says: “Returning to nature is returning to you, for you are not separate from nature. In this fast-moving and in many ways disconnected world, more and more people are looking to
reconnect with nature and with the stillness within. Ironically, the world is interconnected as never before, especially through internet and technology, but many humans have lost themselves on the way. “One of the best ways to return to presence, stillness and peace, and to reconnect with your soul, is by letting nature — Earth — be your guide. “How often do you take time to simply be? “Spend time in nature and allow yourself to become fully present — without doing — simply being. “Notice the deep peace and stillness — and beingness — that every being in nature has. “As you allow nature to become your teacher, you will have access to much wisdom and guidance on your path through life. “Every being in nature has something unique to teach you. “Connecting with a tree is a great way to become more grounded and centered. “The various forms of
water bring you healing, energy and many other teachings. Eagle takes you high up in the sky and gives you perspective and overview of your life, and bear reminds you that self care is important. “As you open up to seeing nature and its beings as teachers, you also open up to the interconnectedness of all beings; and a greater awareness and an open heart will be a more natural part of your daily life. “If you don’t have access to nature, there are other ways of making an Earth connection: Listen to the sounds of the Earth; do a guided nature meditation; connect with the spirit and animals and other Earth beings in a shamanic journey — or if you have a pet, an animal companion, let your animal friend show you the way. Most animals will easily show you how to open your heart, be present and experience joy.” I thank my spirit guide and end the journey. Meditation in nature
I will end this article by sharing a short meditation for your inspiration: Sit on a chair or lie on a blanket and first feel your body; become fully present in your body and take a few deep breaths. Stay aware of your breathing for a while as you let your breathing take care of itself. Go on to listening
to all the sounds around you in all directions. Practice just listening without labeling or judging — listen to all the sounds, so that it all becomes a kind of music — which you are listening to from the place of stillness. No sound is “better” than another. After a little while, open your eyes and look at what is around you. Don’t label anything, but just take everything in. Notice the stillness that surrounds a tree or a flower. When you take time to connect with that stillness and beingness of nature, you will begin to let go of the stress and imbalance within yourself and reconnect with your own inner stillness and beingness. Being in nature with an open mind and heart can be a way of returning home to you. Action Step

Introducing…Luke Danskin The Edge Interview with Scotland’s ‘Rising Star Psychic Medium’ by Tim Miejan A young man who is considered the hottest psychic medium in the UK, Luke Danskin, will make his American debut on Saturday, Nov. 7, at Minneapolis Holistic Expo with the presentation of “A Journey into Spirit Communication.” Scotland’s “Rising Star Psychic Medium” is the next big sensation that is captivating the spiritual world. Since taking to the stage, Danskin has “sold out” every single live show he has ever performed. Audiences are left utterly speechless at his capability to give detailed messages with amazing accuracy. Luke’s waiting list for private readings is five years long. During the 90-minute event at Minneapolis Holistic Expo, Danskin will explain how he communicates with the spirit world and how he believes we all have this ability to do so. He will pass on messages to audience members and he will also discuss how to celebrate and be grateful for the time we got to spend with our loved ones while they were on Earth. He shared his thoughts on coming to America, and on his phenomenal early success, in an interview with The Edge magazine. Thank you for taking the time to speak with us, Luke. Please give us a sense of what you were like as a boy. What did you want to be when you grew up? Luke Danskin: I had a very normal childhood, I
really wanted to be everything — police office, doctor, teacher — the list is endless. What is your earliest memory of a psychic experience as a child, and how open was your family about such experiences? LD: I have always been aware of spirit from as far
back as I can remember, but I kept it a secret and never told anyone about my ability to see spirit. I remember when I was younger listening to my family speak about spirit experiences that they had, so you could say they have always been open to it, but still I didn’t talk about my ability. Where in Scotland did you grow up, and how open overall are people in Scotland towards psychics and mediums? LD: I grew up in a small village called Glenmavis
just 20 minutes from Glasgow. From my experience, people in Scotland are very open to psychics and mediums. You talk on your website about your interest in martial arts as a boy. What benefits did you receive from martial arts? LD: I am a 3rd Degree black belt in the martial art
of Taekwon-Do. Taekwon-Do has always taught me self-discipline, and this helps me with my work as a medium. When did psychic abilities start having a bigger

LD: In 2007, my Uncle James passed away and
I remember walking down the corridor to see his body in the bed at the hospital. The curtain opened and I saw his body lying on the bed lifeless. I looked up at both his daughters, and I could see my uncle’s spirit standing between them. This caused me a little panic, but it also got me to look deeper into the spirit world. What type of work did you engage in after graduating from school, and how did it prepare you for the intuitive work you would eventually begin? LD: I began by doing care work. By this I mean
care for the elderly, disabled and people who were terminally ill. I have always loved helping people, and for me, this was a dream job. It may sound strange, but dealing with people who where terminally ill was a privilege to me because I felt I got to give them that last bit of comfort before they passed to spirit. This made me think more and more about the experience with my Uncle and Nana. Why did you choose to become a professional psychic medium? What is your intention or motivation for doing this work? LD: In 2009, my Nana, whom I was very close to,
passed away. But around three days before she passed, she said to me, “You see those people up see

Danskin continued from p. 19 there don’t you?” She was looking into a corner that I could see spirit in. I said, “Yes.” She then looked at me and said, “I have saw them all my life.” This was her way of telling me she could see spirit. I started to pass little pieces of information from spirit to some family members, who were left astounded at how I would know these things. I saw how it was helping my grieving family, so that’s why I began my work as a medium. It is my sole intention to help as many people as I can throughout this world.
What has been the most moving experience you’ve had personally as a medium? LD: There are so many to choose from, but one
that sticks in my head was a gentleman who came for a private reading with me. He made it clear that he was a little skeptical about what I did. As I began the reading, I faced a window looking out and explained that I had picked up his dad in spirit. I gave him names, dates and all the information just flowed. When I turned to look at the man, he was in floods of tears (happy tears). This man had just been reunited with his dad for a small period of time before his passing, and this brought a tear to my eye with how grateful he was. Before I knew it, I had his friends on the phone looking for readings What is most difficult about being a psychic medium? LD: Being a medium is a huge responsibility and
one that I do not take lightly. All mediums are dealing with people who are grieving. But still I find the most difficult part of being a medium is when I get very horrific details about passings, because I get to see that in my head. It can stick with you for a little while.
You are being called the hottest psychic medium in the UK. How have you received such acclaim, and how has this attention affected you personally? LD: I actually have no idea how that has come
about. I currently have a five-year waiting list for private readings, which keeps growing. All my shows in the UK are selling out. I am so grateful for the support I receive. I really am just an ordinary guy with this ability to communicate with spirit. Being stopped in the street still takes a lot of getting used to. I Workshop at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Minneapolis North featuring James Van Praagh presenting “Master Your Power Within: Working with Energy You Bring Into Your Life and How to Manifest Health, Love, Money and Opportunities.” This breakthrough workshop will cover: How to recognize the
really believe that if you allow the attention to distract you, then you lose the real reason to why you do the work as a medium. Your Minneapolis event will be your first in America. What are your hopes and expectations about demonstrating your intuitive abilities abroad? LD: Yes! I am so excited about this event. Being
in the USA allows me to share my ability with so many more people and help more people with what I do. I never have any expectations, as I believe spirit has that all under control. What sets you apart from other intuitives? LD: Personally, I work in a different way from
many mediums. I believe that each event should be uplifting for everyone, and laughter is a common theme throughout my events. I want people to celebrate the lives of their loved ones in the spirit world, and I want them to leave the event feeling uplifted, even if they didn’t get a message from their loved ones.
How do you view your abilities — as a gift? As your life’s mission? Do you do anything each day to get in the zone to receive information to share with others? LD: What I have is an ability. This ability is in
everyone, but some know how to work with it more than others. Personally, I do not have a routine. I don’t meditate to connect with spirit. The way I look at it is, I work together with spirit like a team. They know when I am going to work, so they give me the information. The only thing I like to do before going out in front of an audience is sit by myself for an hour before the event. Sometimes I watch TV or read magazines. Any final comments for our readers? LD: My biggest goal is to have people celebrate
the lives of their loved ones and take what they taught you and teach it. The other thing I often tell people is not to chase psychic mediums. Allow yourself time to grieve and get used to that person not being around physically in the human body before seeking messages from them in spirit. Thank you so much this wonderful interview.

Workshop Ticket: $59 (Save $10 Off Door Price By Buying Now) • COMBO Friday Workshop + Saturday Keynote General Admission Ticket: $89 (Save $10 Off Door Price By Buying Now) — The Law of Attraction has gained international prominence in recent years, but for many who try to use this spiritual law to simply attract goods, it has been a profound disappointment. In this workshop, James Twyman will demonstrate how the soul longs for goodness, not just goods. In his New York Times bestselling book The Moses Code, James unlocked a secret code that had been hidden for 3,500 years — the sound of the name of God, and how we can use that sound to manifest miracles in our lives and the lives of those around us. In this workshop, you’ll have the chance to learn the secret of Soul Manifestation, as well as have a direct experience with the I AM Frequency. It’s time to fulfill the deepest longing of your soul! JAMES F. TWYMAN is the New York Times bestselling author of 15 books, including Emissary of Light, The Moses Code and The Barn Dance. In 1994, he put the peace prayers from the 12 major religions to music and began traveling the world as “The Peace Troubadour,” often being invited by world leaders and peace organizations to perform the concert in countries at war. James has produced seven music CDs, and he is the producer/director of five films, including the award-winning Indigo and the upcoming Redwood Highway.

Luke’s waiting list for private readings is over four years long. This is Luke’s very first event in the United States. Luke Danskin will show you that life really does continue after we leave this body. He is passionate in
encouraging people to celebrate the lives of their loved ones who have now passed on. Luke will give random messages to audience members from their family or friends who has passed into the spirit world. During the 90-minute lecture, Luke will explain how he communicates with the spirit world and how he believes we all have this ability to do so. He will pass on messages to audience members and he will also discuss how to celebrate and be grateful for the time we got to spend with our loved ones while they were on Earth. LUKE DANSKIN, growing up, never told anyone about his ability to see and communicate with the spirit world. Dealing with Loss of his own close loved ones and with the encouragement of his cousin, he opened up about the ability he has and continued to develop his gift. After several private readings and honing his psychic medium-ship skills, the demand for Luke grew beyond belief and now he has an extensive waiting list around the world. Passionate in encouraging people to celebrate the lives of loved ones, laughter is a common theme at Luke’s shows. Luke believes these events should be an Uplifting and Inspirational experience.

7 Steps to Abundance by James Van Praagh
Use positive affirmations every day. I use an affirmation that covers all of the bases for me! I say it to myself every day, and also have it on my office wall, where I can see it as I work. It is “Happy am I, Healthy am I, Holy am I.” Use this affirmation, or come up with one that resonates with you. Let the words sink into your heart and soul, for they are your natural state.
“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.” —Buddha You’re not just close to having abundance in all areas of your life — you’re already there. In fact, the things you desire most — love, prosperity and health — are part of your natural state of being. When you accept that you are love, prosperity and health with all of your heart, you will behave in a way that allows them to flow into your life. If you’re not experiencing abundance in your life at this particular moment, these thoughts will help you to get back to your natural state: Your words and thoughts are real. The life you are living right now is the result of your thoughts. If you focus on fear, dwelling on the “what ifs” then you’ll attract the things that you are trying so hard to avoid. To bypass fear, focus on the present moment — there’s no point rehashing the past or worrying about the future. To manifest what you desire, you must be mindful and joyful in the present moment. To attract love, be loving. If you are seeking your one special soulmate, be patient. The universe will send you the perfect person, but it might take a little time. In the meantime, tune into the vibration of love by sending loving energy to the world — performing small acts of kindness and compassion to friends, family, strangers and pets. The love you send out will come back to you. In financial matters, act from a place of plenty, not scarcity. Prosperity, like water, needs to flow. Start the flow by being generous to others and to yourself. Believe that the universe will deliver everything you need to be happy.
James Van Praagh will present the keynote talk, “The Healing Power of Mediumship” at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 8, at Minneapolis Holistic Expo, and he will lead a three-day post-expo workshop, “Master Your Power Within: Working with Energy You Bring Into Your Life and How to Manifest Health, Love, Money and Opportunities,” on November 9-11 at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Minneapolis North. Visit www.edgelife.net to save on advance tickets and for complete details. Stop hanging onto other people’s attitudes about money. Your money energy can be inherited. Think carefully how you feel about money. Do you feel guilty about the idea of having or wanting it because that might be seen as a sign of greed? Did your parents say “money is the root of all evil” until you believed it? Let go of the past, because it’s blocking you from experiencing abundance today. Replace negative self-talk with positive thoughts. You’re living a human existence, and negative thoughts, fears and insecurities will crop up from time to time. Don’t let them take root. Replace them with present tense, positive affirmations. When you have a thought like “I’m sick and tired,” replace it immediately with “I look forward to doing everything I need to do today!”
Notice the blessings that exist in your life and give thanks to the universe for providing them. This supports the flow of abundance. Sarah Ban Breatnach explains it perfectly: “You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you.”
Remember that you are meant to have love in your life. You are meant to have your needs met. You are meant to have a healthy mind, body and spirit. It’s natural that you will contribute to life, be happy and finish any unfinished business before you reach the time when you step through the threshold of light and return home. So go out and be love, prosperity and health! a James Van Praagh is a pioneer in the field of mediumship and one of the most celebrated and respected spiritual teachers working today.

Living in the ‘I AM Consciousness’ by James F. Twyman What if I told you that 3,500 years ago a secret was given to humanity that literally changed the course of human history, one that was so obvious, simple and unstoppable that something had to be done to control it? In fact, when the authorities realized the full extent of this infinite well of possibility, a decision was made that has impacted us ever since. It was hidden away, denied and generally pushed aside — and so it has remained ever since. Until now! Whispers of this amazing secret have been leaked through esoteric and mystical circles for over two millennia, yet it was still reserved for the highest initiates — the priests and saints, who legend claims commanded the natural elements to do their bidding, for good or for bad, since the secret you’re now about to learn was impartial in its application. Some used it to grow rich and wield enormous power, while others used it to promote peace and harmony — and even initiate world religious movements that have affected the lives of billions of people. Let me tell you one more secret: You can only hide for so long. Sooner or later, so-called reality becomes unbearable and you instinctively find yourself stretching beyond the status quo into a new world, or a very old one, where dreams really do come true. In other words, the end is guaranteed, in one way or another, at one point or another, and there’s really nothing you can to about it. So why start now? You live in a world where your limitations are constantly reinforced, and where it’s easier to live inside the lines that are painted by people too afraid to live any other way than to say out loud: “I’m not doing this anymore!” In the past, people who lived in this way were stoned to death or forced away from the community so they couldn’t infect others. Most of us don’t need to worry about suffering the same dramatic fate, but it doesn’t mean that we won’t be ridiculed until we exhibit a more reasonable attitude. It takes courage to make a stand, but make a stand you must do if you’re to enjoy the fruits that others deny themselves. Then you become one of “those,” a new breed of rare and extraordinary humans who demolish the limits that bound our forefathers. It’s something we all say we want, but how many of us are willing to take the risk? The most important lesson today is what I like to call “Soul Manifestation,” or manifesting the highest, truest longing of your soul instead of your ego. Thirty-five hundred years ago the door was opened, 30 www.edgemagazine.net
don’t have, need or desire? Is it possible that it leaves us with the obligation to serve humanity and the people around us who are in need, and in doing so, fulfill our soul’s deepest desire and longing?

and now it’s time for you to walk through it. If you do, then everything will change — your mind, your body, and even your soul. Did you know that God has a name? From a Judaeo/Christian perspective, the name of God was given to Moses around 3,500 years ago when he asked a very important question. In essence, Moses said: “If you want me to do all the amazing things you’re asking me to do, I need to know what your name is.” Until then God was only addressed through titles, but not in a personal or intimate way. You probably don’t use a title when speaking with a someone you know and love. Likewise, when you deal with God, is it better to use words like “Lord,” or “Most High,” or the actual name that God prefers? You’re about to learn the literal name of God, the one that has been used by some of the greatest spiritual leaders in the history of the world to create miracles. Now you can use it to create miracles in your own life, starting with your physical body and overall health. God said to Moses: “Eheyh Asher Eheyh,” often translated as “I Am That I Am.” Moses then used the name he was given to create some of the greatest miracles in history, all leading to the release of Israelite slaves from Egypt. He was the first to live within the “I AM Consciousness,” something that we are all being called toward now. A few years ago I wrote a book called The Moses Code, and within weeks it became an international bestseller. It was soon followed by a film, which was viewed around the world by millions of people and began an important conversation: Is the so-called Law of Attraction more than just using the power of intention to attract the things we
The Law of Attraction: the process of using our innate spiritual energy to draw the experiences and objects we desire into our lives. Often associated with the movie and book The Secret, The Law of Attraction has become a spiritual-pop phenomenon, helping some to achieve amazing results, while confusing many others.
When we use The Law of Attraction, we create a magnetic field that draws in the things we want but do not have. Moses had a very different idea of how it should be used. He knew that the highest application of this spiritual principle has nothing to do with attracting or getting what we do not have, but rather, giving away what is already within us. When we follow this path, The Moses Code asserts, everything we desire is automatically attracted into our lives. As Jesus said: “Seek first the Kingdom of God and all these other things will be added unto you.” The Moses Code says that you can claim those things right now instead of waiting for them to appear on their own! We tend to live in the world of: “Someday…after I’ve done whatever it is I think I need to do.” In other words, we usually believe that we need to be fixed in some way, and that the solution is off in the distance, somewhere out of reach at the present time. If you’re responsible and diligent, following all the necessary steps, then the solution will one day appear, and then you’ll be happy and fulfilled. But what if none of this is true? What if the true ingredients of wealth, health and perfect fitness are already within you needing to be awakened? If that’s true, the only question is: How do I awaken that which is asleep, or achieve that which is currently invisible? You do it by simply claiming it, saying: “I Am That.” It is a language that is heard and understood by your soul simply because it remembers how you were created — Perfect and Whole. When you use the name of God, just as Moses did, that perfection awakens and takes over your life. You become a living, breathing “Manifestation Master.” What is an “I AM Statement?” It may surprise you to know that you use I Am statements every day. In fact, they are
the foundation for the life you currently live — either good or bad. Maybe when you woke up this morning and looked in the mirror you said, “I am old,” or “I am ugly.” Is it any wonder that you never change, or that your body resists every attempt you make to move in positive new directions? Imagine what would happen if you looked in the mirror and said, “I am gorgeous,” or “I am filled with life?” Though this may sound simplistic, it is the foundation upon which you can build a new life, with a body that reflects your declaration, and a spirit that is happy and fulfilled. The purpose of this lesson is to teach you the power of those simple words “I AM,” and to help you use them to change your life. When you use this phrase consciously instead of unconsciously, they become the building blocks to creating a new life, and ultimately, a new world. Does that seem possible? Moses did it 3,500 years ago, and you can do it, as well. All you need to do is claim what is already yours. You do this by using the name of God: “I AM,” followed by whatever it is you want to embody. Perhaps you want to experience more intimacy in your life. Instead of saying: “I Am Alone,” say: “I Am Perfect and Whole.” I promise that when you do this, you will see miracles happen all around you. It may seem simple and even ridiculous, but the greatest spiritual lessons and tools usually are. Experiment with it a bit and you’ll see for yourself that The Moses Code really is the most powerful manifestation process in history. a

Venus, the Goddess of Love, rules the New Moon Lunar Adventures
by Kathie Anderson Venus, the Goddess of Love, rules the New Moon in Libra, on October 12, and the Full Moon in Taurus, on October 27. What are you most attracted to? What makes you feel loved? How do you show your love to others? What helps you to relax and enjoy life? What possessions and values are most important to you? These are questions that Venus encourages us to reflect upon, this month. As author Starhawk promotes, “...Connect with Her [the Goddess] through the moon, the stars, the ocean, the earth, through the trees, through other human beings, through ourselves. She is here. She is within us all.”
Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…You’ve probably been reflecting on a particular relationship, most likely a work one. Perhaps you’ve been feeling like a victim, or maybe you’ve been feeling the need to protect another. At the New Moon, it will be time to take immediate action. Put your ideals into practice. Channel your frustrations constructively. Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…Have you been feeling the need to reorganize your daily routine? Use the energy of the New Moon to balance your life. The key is to change your belief system. It’s okay to be selfindulgent, and to play. If you’ve been too focused on others, do something creative. It’ll take the pressure off of your relationships. Gemini (May 21-June 20)…Perhaps you’ve been experiencing writer’s block, or an inability to express yourself. Well, that’s okay. Your creative project has needed time to ferment. In the last half of October, however, you will experience an eruption of what’s been brewing beneath the surface, and your creative juices will begin to flow, again. Cancer (June 21-July 22)…It’s time to take a walk down memory lane, and reconnect with your roots. Childhood issues may resurface at this time. Perhaps your relationship with a parent is tense, and you need emotional independence. Make peace with your past. Listen to your gut, and develop an inner sense of security. Seek Soul companions. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)...This is a good time to work on your communication skills, and strengthen your relationships with your co-workers or employees, or even a sibling. Make sure you understand another’s point of view. You’re likely to have an eye-opening experience. At the Full Moon, all eyes will be on you, so lead with integrity. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)...Chances are you’ve been thinking a lot about money, lately, about what you can do to feel more secure, financially. This month, you are likely to find ways to increase your income,
so have faith. You also could experience unexpected happenings around money, so do not gamble. Instead, do inexpensive things that allow you to experience financial freedom. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)...It’s time to reinvent yourself within your relationships. Relationships are about give and take. You need to balance your partner’s needs and comfort levels with what makes you feel comfortable and secure. If you’re feeling limited within a relationship, this is the time to let go of it. Now is the time to be brave. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)...Take time to be in solitude, this month. You are moving towards a new way to approach your work and daily routines, and need to do some Soul-searching. Only you can decide what comes next. Let go, and trust that you can make the right decision. Find some emotional peace of mind. Pay attention to your dreams and imagination! Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)...The more willing you are to put yourself in the limelight this month, the more positive the rewards, including a possible promotion and, therefore, increase in income. This is a favorable period for professional schmoozing. If you’re feeling annoyed with a colleague, improve the situation by giving the individual a beautiful gift. Remember your loved ones at home, too. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan.19)...What would you like to achieve? If you don’t know where you’re headed, you could make a wrong turn. The beginning of the month is a good time to set goals for your career and self-mastery, but it’s not necessarily a time to implement them. Have fun at the Full Moon! Do something self-expressive, like writing poetry or lyrics. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)...Reexamine what you believe about the world, because your beliefs create your experience. More specifically, examine a belief that you may hold around money and codependency, perhaps with a sibling. A session with a hypnotherapist is likely to expand your perspective, and help you to settle a problem within your family. Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)...What do you value in a friendship? You’re in the process of aligning with a higher vibration of energy, and are very aware of and sensitive to those around you. Eliminate attachments that drain your energy, and deepen your level of intimacy with friends that support your emotional independence and spiritual growth. a Kathie Anderson, M.A., C.C.H.T., R.M.T., is a healer, astrologer and writer who guides others to reach their highest potential through her private practice, Lunar Adventures.

Finding healing through the Akasha energy After surviving a life threatening illness at a young age, author Maggie Chula turned to alternative medicine and healing to find a deeper power within herself. Twenty-six years later, Chula’s new book, Open the Doorway to your Soul, provides readers with the tools and resources to find their own connection to the soul and to harness their own divine strength. “My health was always weak when I was young, and at one point in my life I was so sick and too ill to survive the surgery I needed to live,” Chula said. “I took that time in my life, when I nearly died, and turned my health around using alternative methods of healing.” Focusing on the spiritual concept of the Akasha, Chula discusses the innerconnected energy between all living beings and the energy of God. “We need to put down our differences and embrace our similarities,” Chula said. “Your actions, thoughts and behaviors do have an effect on everyone else — just as their thoughts, actions and behaviors have an effect on you.” For more information, visit www.maggiechula.com. a

Frequencies of Brilliance… a light work for these times by Joanne Wakefield I remember clearly the day I was introduced to Frequencies of Brilliance. I had brought my daughter to a practitioner of this very new work and sat in on the session as the practitioner did brain work to address her persistent migraine headaches. Lindsay had a significant lasting change in her migraine headache pattern not experienced in the many other healing processes we had tried. As I watched this sacred work, I knew it was the next step on my spiritual path. The course was to be taught shortly in Minnesota, and regardless of cost, time commitment or any other factor, I intended to be there. It was a soul call. The time was December 2002; the course was Frequencies of Brilliance Stage I, a light body work that opens doorways on the body to awakening and self-remembrance. The instructor was Christine Day and the course took place over 12 days in a retreat center on the St. Croix River. So much took place during those 12 days: lifetimes of transformation, deep healing and also deep confusion. I learned later that the state of confusion allows greater potential for growth and transformation. The 20 of us that took the program bonded deeply through the process. Many of us came together with such a familiarity, and with such a soul connection, that we were irrevocably bound together and continue to be so through the years that have passed. When I went home, I was a different person, vastly changed energetically. I had a knowing that all was right in the world and that I was much more powerful than I had understood before. I had been searching for years for meaning in my life, and this work seemed to meet that longing to find myself and my alignment to my path on this earth walk. I finished the latest level of Frequencies of Brilliance Stage 24 in February of this year; it is always a great joy to attend the next level of the work. What I find most amazing is that each time I take a course, the work that is revealed is completely new and unexpected. It is truly in the realm of all possibilities. The work in each successive course is channeled in through Christine before she teaches the course. The first time she teaches each new level, the group she works with serves a special purpose,
anchoring the frequencies onto the planet. They are an integral part of bringing these new frequencies onto the planet through the human form. What I have seen over the many years of initiating into this work is that Christine is able to bring the highest frequencies of light possible for the current time to be received by us in human form. Time and time again, we will work with a new energy or a new concept and then months or years later that same concept or terminology begins to be spoken about through other sources. She is truly at the apex for transformational energies being brought to the planet. I have trained with Christine as an assistant learning the process of creating sacred space through using Sacred Geometry. I have never experienced with any other work such a pure, sacred space that is created and held, allowing the participant to drop what is no longer serving and step into their higher light Self. In the vast spectrum of Frequencies of Brilliance work, there are many processes and techniques for energy healing and spiritual awakening. They range from bone molding, work with organs, healing patterns, working with light strands, manifestation abilities and working with the crystalline structure that we are awakening at this time. There really are endless possibilities through this work. In recent years Christine Day has begun to use seminar formats to bring the light work to larger numbers of people that need no prior experience to receive and work with the frequencies currently available on the Earth plane. Oh, I forgot to say Frequencies of Brilliance is a work that is brought to us by the Pleiadians. That wasn’t my go-to statement when first introducing the work in the early years. It is something that I had to reconcile with. It was in that place of confusion where I had to decide to take my place and to acknowledge my alliance with them bringing this work to the Earth plane now. a Joanne Wakefield is a Frequencies of Brilliance practitioner, an Intuitive and Shamanic Healer. She is a Higher Brain Living Mastery Facilitator. She is certified in Healing Touch and organizes seminars and courses for Christine Day. She has a MA in Human Development. She facilitates workshops using crystal vortexes and heart opening techniques. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or at wayshowerj.com. Copyright © 2015. All Rights Reserved.
Love your organs, love yourself by Warren King Imagine that you had ten servants whose whole mission was keeping you healthy and happy. They work for you 24/7, assist you in keeping a positive state of mind, give you abundant energy, toss out your refuse. It’s true! You do have these unfailingly loyal servants in the form of your body’s organs. Learning how to understand their signals and needs via the five elements of Oriental Medicine will enable you to be the sovereign of your own health. Oriental Medicine associates the organs with five corresponding elemental qualities of life. This Five Elements theory posits that water, metal, wood, earth and fire are the basic components of nature. These elements can help interpret the relationship between the body’s physiology and pathology with its natural environment. It also holds that your body’s vital energy or chi circulates through meridian channels that have branches connecting to the organs. Overall, there is a strong synergy between the five elements, your organs, the seasons, the emotions and your diet. So adjusting seasonally to specific nourishing foods, herbs and cooking styles is highly beneficial to your well-being. As we move into fall and prepare for the upcoming winter season, we need to realize that energy changes happen with each season. Colder weather requires us to go within and shift downward in our level of activities. In Western culture we think of dressing differently and preparing our houses for winter, but we really need to also be thinking about changing our diets to maintain warmth in our bodies and optimize the functionality of our organs. Fall is associated with the element metal and is upon us when the cycle of the day shortens with earlier sunsets. (Your nose is one bellwether of the new season when colds start to set in.) The organs associated with fall are the lungs and large intestine. Hay fever and other seasonal allergies are examples of not being in harmony with the shifting energies of fall. People think such recurrent symptoms are inevitable and just to be accepted or masked with pharmaceutical prescriptions. But that’s not the case! When you are in harmony with the seasons, you don’t have to get sick. One simple example of changing with the seasons is to ask ourselves why we continue to drink ice water or eat ice cream when it’s 10 degrees outside. This is habitual behavior that demonstrates you are not listening to the intuition of the body. With fall, we should instead be thinking in terms of warming drinks, cooked stews, soups simmered in a crockpot, fermented foods like sauerkraut and baked goods. The eating style should be
in sharp contrast to the tropical fruits, juices, salads and light fare of summer. Fall colds and flu are often the result of the body’s need to contract with the season and clear out stored yin energies like sugar. The skin reflects what’s occurring in the lungs and large intestines, and so dry skin, eczema or rashes are more frequent as the weather gets colder. Intestinal irritation and inflammation can result in mucus build-up in the sinuses and lungs. The saying “If mama isn’t happy, nobody is happy” can be applied to your gut. If your intestinal balance is out of whack because of your diet, it affects all other aspects of your mind/body health. Pungent foods like ginger, radish, garlic, leeks and spices cut mucus and should be ingested during the fall and winter seasons. Mucus-causing foods to avoid are white flour, sugar, milk and cheese. The dietary “whites” — sugar, flour, rice, salt, milk, potatoes — are all too prevalent in the standard American diet and cause digestive issues. The emotions associated with the time period of September through November and the lungs are sadness or grief. The body and mind are not dualistic but rather two parts of the same whole. Negative emotions can be caused by physical imbalances and vice versa. So it’s important to release any such pent-up emotions by crying, laughing or deep breathing, so they don’t get stuck in the body and cause illness. Acupressure is one simple tool that everyone can use on themselves to stimulate and clear such chi blockages. Firmly hold your fingers on the relevant acupuncture meridian points for the lungs or other organs three times per day and see if you feel better as a result. Another interesting way to clue into your body is to examine your face. Different organs are associated with different components of the face (lungs with cheeks, the intestinal tract with the lower lip), and when organs are stressed
it can be evident on your visage. Our mothers and grandmothers often followed the tradition of eating ripe seasonal foods as a way to stay in harmony with nature. In fall, this translates to varieties of squash and root vegetables like carrots, turnips, yams, rutabagas or daikon radish. Learning the basics of home cooking and forgetting how to order food through drive-up windows are essential steps to staying healthy. Statistics show that 80 percent of Americans are chronically dehydrated, so drinking enough water to flush your organs of toxins is also an easy step to better health and vitality. Eating with the seasons helps to strengthen our “wei chi” — our body’s protective energy that defends against pathogens. We’ve all heard the saying, “Oh well, a cold is going around.” But why do some people catch it and others don’t? The strength, or lack thereof, of their wei chi is the answer. Colds are typically an attempt by the body to clear out toxins, so if you maintain a low level of accumulated toxins, you’ll be less likely to come down with a cold or the flu. Chi gong exercises are particularly good in encouraging energy flow and are thus helpful to the organs. Interestingly, certain sounds can also aid in healing our organs. As you learn to live with the seasons and interpret your body’s language, any physical ailments may be telling you that your organs just need some love! There are a number of natural healing modalities, foods, herbs and more that can help you improve the health of your organs and keep these ten servants aligned with the highest good of your mind/ body/soul kingdom. a Warren King is a licensed acupuncturist and naturopath based in Minnetonka, MN.

October 2015 the edge 33
October by Megan Bacigalupo Because old man winter comes in December, it is good to say October is woman. A well-balanced woman she is. Beautiful and radiant with ample color. The kind of woman who walks into a room with a cape on and tosses it, commanding attention. The crisp air and the winds keep her busy; she is a very busy woman. She is a strong woman indeed. She has lots of spirit guides. Familiars at her side, they enhance her strength and enable her to perform her duties. She lets the weather and the day dictate her duties and does as she pleases. She decorates a lot, both inside and outside. She works busily about the cottage and land, and she is aided by fall energy. She is one with the season. Fall energy is different, fall spirits are different, and fall fairies are different than those of the spring. They are much faster in helping us. They are swift and whimsical, and October appreciates their direction. She holds many tools and prepares for things to come. She has a passion for art and uses bright colors to express herself. She reads fire and dances with it. She speaks to the reflections in the water. The birds of prey accompany her as she walks
through fields and dances in the corn husks and catches a scarecrow’s eye. She shape-shifts with the plants blowing in the wind and shape-shifts with the crows in the sky. October fears very little, for she is a survivor. Every year she knows her cycle and knows her friend spring will come. She gets ready for hibernation with ease. She enjoys loud sounds and likes to see things scurry about. She loves the tricksters of the fall, fooling her eyesight and making her laugh out loud. Her laugh can be heard from distant places, a contagious laugh it is. She loves the night and the fun, scary, outdoor moments when the the wind whips things around, where there are unfamiliar sounds that are caused by things crashing and breaking. The wind is October’s friend. The Harvest moon is her divine connection to
the universe and all its beauty. She waits for it to come and greets it as she rises across the bay, bowing down to worship and the loons and fish on the lake by her home chime into the magnetic trance movement of true and utter praise. The water is like glass, its silence hushes her. October loves this night; she is the night. She collects branches and breaks them with her knees and tosses them into a massive fire that stretches to the stars in the sky. She has to sleep under the stars and the moon on this night. A fox and skunk slide by, both attracted to the moon and October’s full-moon ritual. The next morning comes and she wakes up and talks to the trees. The trees talk to October. She heads for the barn and the cats and dogs follow her. She mounts her horse and heads for the woods — to disappear in the forest and never be seen again until the next year. Just as the season ends. October goes away with it to rest and replenish her strength to shine on the next year. Next year, a new October will emerge. We will all look forward to meeting her then. Always remember, October is just around the corner for all of us. a Megan Bacigalupo has always enjoyed exploring different truths, science and nature.

Pumpkins your family will love Food First
by Nutrition Julie It’s Fall Harvest time and one of my favorite things to do is visit the pumpkin patch with my family. While my kids are off looking for the biggest pumpkin to carve, I’m busy looking for the smallest pumpkins to cook with! Small pumpkins are sweeter and less starchy than the big ones and are great for making pies and soups. Here’s a great recipe for Roasted Pumpkin Soup that your whole family will love. It takes a bit of extra time to make it from scratch, but it is so worth the results! The pumpkin will give you Vitamin A and fiber, the ginger is a wonderful anti-inflammatory and the pumpkin seeds are loaded with immune-boosting zinc! Roasted Pumpkin Soup 2 small pumpkins — cut in half, scoop out seeds, cover with olive oil and salt, place cut-side down on baking sheet, and roast at 350 degrees in the oven for about 40 minutes or until tender and golden brown. Cool enough to remove skin. 1 T. fresh chopped fresh ginger 1 medium white onion, sliced 1 garlic clove, chopped 34 www.edgemagazine.net
1 small apple, cored and sliced 2 T. Maple syrup 1/2 cup Apple Cider Salt & Pepper 1/2-1 cup cream or coconut milk 1. In a soup pot, sauté the onion, garlic and ginger in a tablespoon of olive or coconut oil. Add the roasted pumpkin, apple cider, maple syrup, salt and pepper and let simmer for 30-40 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from pot and puree in blender. 2. Once soup is completely blended, return to soup pot on low heat and finish by adding cream or coconut milk until desired consistency. 3. Garnish with roasted pumpkin seeds. Roast your own, or for this recipe I like the spicy pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds) from the bulk section of the market. Serve with a generous side of greens or leafy green salad and you will have the perfect Fall meal! a Nutrition Julie is a Certified Holistic Health Coach and Raw Food Nutrition Educator who is passionate about Nutrition, Health and Wellness.

LOVING SMART: CONSCIOUS PARENTING & MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES by Cara Gubbins Have you ever vowed, “When I grow up, I’ll never say that to my kids!?” Only to find yourself saying exactly the same thing to your kids that your parents said to you? Yep, I’m blushing, too. But I’m learning from my son about how to be a better parent. When Zane started Kindergarten, I was in my second year of graduate school, working toward a master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology. At Zane’s school, they teach Multiple Intelligences in every grade. In Kindergarten, they call the different types of intelligences “smarts,” so kids can be number smart and music smart and people smart and self smart. There are about eight “official” kinds of “smarts.” In September, I was walking past Zane’s room after I had put him to bed and I heard a noise in his room, so I stopped outside his door and listened to him talking to himself in the dark. He was counting by tens from 10 to 100. When he got to 100, he said to himself, all proud and pleased, “Wow. I’m number smart!” A few months later, I was putting Zane to bed. We had already read a book and we were lying together in his “Go, Diego, Go!” toddler bed with the lights out, just hanging out together for a few minutes. “Zane, are you still number smart?” I asked. Immediately he answered, “Yes!” “What other kinds of smart are you?” He thought about it a moment and said, “I’m writing smart.” “Yep,“ I said. “And I’m coloring smart.” “Mmmmhmmm. Are you any other kind of smart?” He thought for another moment and said, “I’m loving smart. That’s the first one I learned.” I was silent for a moment, taking that one in. Then I asked, “Where did you learn that one?” “From loving you,” was his immediate, nonchalant reply. Wow. I was a little stunned. I loved this on so many levels. First, he knew
he was “loving” smart. That’s awesome. I didn’t think I was loving smart, and I was an adult! Second, he learned it by doing it, through his experience of loving. I didn’t teach him how to do it. He just did it. Third, he learned it on his own. For free. As a kid. And here I was spending a lot of money as an adult to re-learn the same thing in graduate school! Finally, he learned it by loving me, his mom. What a beautiful and natural thing to do. Then, part of me rebelled against the last realization. What had I done to deserve this pure, innocent love? I didn’t deserve this huge honor! It triggered feelings of unworthiness in me that were irrational. I didn’t want to interact with my son out of these feelings of unworthiness, so I knew that I needed to heal the underlying misunderstanding in my consciousness. Zane loved me, but clearly I wasn’t loving myself, so I looked inside to see where I wasn’t loving myself. Growing up, I had (incorrectly) learned that love was conditional, that it had to be earned. When I didn’t get positive attention and approval, I misinterpreted that as not being loved. Because I was operating out of a misunderstanding that I had to earn love, I erroneously thought that I had to earn my son’s love and if I didn’t, I had done something wrong and didn’t deserve it. Using my spiritual psychology tools, I forgave myself for judging myself as doing something wrong and not earning my son’s love. I forgave myself for buying into the misunderstanding that love is conditional. The truth is love is unconditional. I had been loving myself conditionally and receiving love from others conditionally. But when I let go of my need to do something in order to deserve love, it somehow became easy to love myself just the way I am right now. And then I was able to fully receive Zane’s love. I realized that my greatest gift to Zane is to love him unconditionally. Because when I do, all the rest of the details work themselves out. With Zane as my guide, I’m becoming loving smart — and a better parent. a Cara Gubbins is a mom, author, intuitive and coach who offers intuitive readings for pets and people, classes to help you connect with your pets and your spirit guides, and transformational coaching and retreats to connect you to the life of your dreams.

restoring some harmony to frustrated parents by Samantha Moe Are you ever confused about how you became an angry parent when you were never an angry person? If you’re a stressed-out parent who wonders, “How did I get here?” you want to know the two facts behind frustrated families so you can restore harmony at home. Children don’t just act out of anger, defiance or disrespect. These are symptoms of a stressedout brain that is compelled to get attention. Yelling, hitting and using mean words like “I hate you” indicate an overactive fight-or-flight stress response in the brain. I call this “Fire In The Brain.” Sensitive, emotional and stubborn children have different brain wiring than those born with a pleasing temperament. They are Intense Brain children. Fact #1: Your Intense Brain child’s wiring is
Intense Brain children have a psychological need to be in control. They react to unusual triggers in an over-the-top manner, negotiate their desires by wearing you down and seeking an intensity match. Traditionally, parents attempt to regain authority by yelling, threatening to take away privileges and repeating the same lesson. Unfortunately, talking to an Intense Brain child about the “right way to behave” or “good choices” is ineffective. They learn best through touch, not listening. see

KNOWING WHAT TO DO TO CHANGE THE TIDE by Amy Cerny Vasterling The first time I had authentic anger with my children, I knew I’d made it as a parent. What a unique experience to be joy-filled about being angry. I knew I was able to operate authentically with them, a goal I thought unattainable. Some of us grew up in homes where this didn’t occur. It is quite an achievement and quite possible to create an environment where your children know who they are, stay empowered and can relate to you at all ages. As parents, we are asked to judge our world for our children at each turn. We look at them through the eyes of the story in which we were raised, through their actions and words, and through the situation(s) at hand. Let’s face it, being a parent can be a bit stressful. Feeling insecure about what to do when things start heating up, being overly tired, hungry or lacking consistent self-care can leave us short on perspective, an important component to parenting authentically. If you are feeling stressed, calmly stating your feelings to your child is a great way to show them its OK to have feelings. It also shows them

Kari, mother of two, is a great example of an intentional parent who wanted the best for her 6-year-old daughter but felt stuck in a negative downward spiral. She said, “My daughter lashes out every day until I scream or criticize. I don’t want to be a parent who yells, but it’s like nothing works and I’m at the end of my rope!” We worked together on giving her daughter instructions through touch. When it was time for supper Kari said, “I learned to stand in front of her and physi36 www.edgemagazine.net
how to manage their feelings as an adult through communication. Authentic parenting is also delivered through: natural consequence, simple enforceable statements and holding clear boundaries with compassion. Letting go of our own desires for our children to meet our definition of success and allowing them to “fail” and make mistakes starting at young ages gives them calculated risk to learn and solve problems. Looking to yourself to see what the child is mirroring for you can also be a great opportunity to learn and grow with your child. They come here to teach us and shift old family patterns. If we can look at the core of the story where we have resistance with a child, we can unearth something much larger. When we claim it with them, we can start the process of letting go of an old story, which was likely from generations far gone. Sharing some of your successes and failures, including what you did to achieve your desired result, is a great way to help children understand things don’t always work out. Sharing how you created success out of something that did not work is a great teacher. In turn, being their sounding wall and coach for situations they have is a great way to share in problem solving. Asking questions and letting them find the answers, and giving them ideas but not the solutions, also is supportive for them to think larger and come up with their own solutions. Helping build self-concept in children is a way we can teach them to appreciate who they are. This is achieved by describing what you see them doing right. It’s a very simple, free and easy thing to do — and you won’t believe the result! Stop telling them to pick up their shoes. Simply find one thing they did that worked well for your home. Then describe it: “I see a child who knows how to put their dishes away.” Then the best teachers step away, making room for the golden moment as the child self-validates, “I am capable.” Making positive descriptive statements all of the time will take away from the authenticity. The child will know you are using it for leverage instead of a sincere acknowledgment. A great example of an enforceable statement is, “I love you too much to argue,” brought to you by Love and Logic out of Colorado. This simple statement is to be used after you’ve told the child no and they persist. Say, “I love you too much to argue.” Your kids may push a bit. Let them say what they need. If you use this statement the first time and don’t cave, in time they’ll learn once you say no, you mean no. This is just the tip of the iceberg! There are so many simple and wonderful authentic parenting strategies. Studying these methods will leave you wanting your kids to make mistakes, something they need to do to fully be who they really are. This is a gift all kids deserve. a Amy Cerny Vasterling is a teacher, public speaker, counselor and facilitator in the areas, of grief, parenting, understanding personal intuitive ability and spiritual understanding.

cally guide her through the steps to turn off the game and transition to the table rather than yelling across the room.” As an intentional parent, you want the best for your child, not to feel angry, impatient or resentful. But when you have an Intense Brain who is stubborn and wants to rule the roost, you quickly become frustrated and exhausted. How do you respond to fiery moments? Do you match fire with fire? If your answer is “yes,” you are not alone. Most intentional parents don’t go from
zero to sixty just because their child wants to play five more minutes instead of getting ready to leave the house. It’s the everyday repetition of defiance and disrespect that make it impossible to remain calm and compassionate. Intense Brain children are persistent. It’s like there is a little scientist in their head testing, “Will I win this time?” Their brain craves intensity, so they bait you until you grow louder and more intense. This intensity stimulates the same fightor-flight stress chemicals and flood her brain, which creates a sense of familiarity
STAR CHILDREN: READY OR NOT WORLD... WE’RE ALREADY HERE by Eric Earll & Bert Allen Today’s modern parents are beginning to seek out answers from spirituality when it comes to understanding their children. Many psychics won’t read children under the age of 16 or 18. Yet, we take the opposite approach and consider it a sacred gift to provide these souls and their caretakers with information that will enrich and make sense of their earthly journey. Through our work we have come to intimately know and understand “Star Children.” A Star Child is an over-arching term that is used to describe the spiritual generations of “Indigo, Crystal and Rainbow” children. The reason that the term “star” is used is that while each of these three generations have very unique and different characteristics, they have one thing in common. The souls of these children are old and wise, and they most likely have never lived on the Earth before. Most have chosen to experience a physical reality in another part of the galaxy and so, in turn, we on Earth have given them the label of “star children.” The specific terms of Indigo, Crystal, and Rainbow refer to the auras that surround them. Indigos have a rich blue aura, crystals have a translucent aura filled with pastel colors, and rainbows have auras that are filled with many colors. So, why at this point in the Earth’s evolution have these souls chosen to take on this new challenge? The souls of star children agreed prior to incarnating that they would take on the mission of changing and shifting the energy of Earth. They could break down and change old systems easily because they had no previous comfort or attachment to them. Let’s explore each group: Indigos — They were sent to be warriors. Their purpose is to fight
and find the truth at all costs. It is not uncommon for an Indigo to take the approach, “You lie to me, then you are dead to me.” They have little patience for those who do not live by the truth, even if it hurts someone’s feelings. This becomes especially interesting for parents who are often lightworkers and try to heal or make things OK at any cost. Indigos don’t see the logic in keeping anything that isn’t working, whether it is the refrigerator that needs repair or the legal system that is flawed or inhumane. Most Indigos have significant reactions or allergies to food additives or dyes. Crystals — These children are very different from Indigos. Crystals take
advantage of the work that Indigos did to break things down. They literally see things with “new eyes.” One physical characteristic of crystals is that they have very large eyes. Many crystals have delayed speech because they had no need for it as toddlers. Instead of developing their verbal skills, they were already communicating through telepathy. Many crystals are labeled as “autistic,” though the label is applied in error.
that is comforting. The emotional impact may not be good but her brain doesn’t consider this. Fact #2: What you do matters. Your response impacts whether this intensityseeking behavior will continue or diminish. To ensure a healthy, happy development, you want to have a parenting approach that addresses intensity and offers specific steps to transform out-ofcontrol behavior. At the root of every child’s unconscious demands for attention is a message. In the case of an Intense Brain child, the message
Rainbows — These children are considered to be the most balanced of all the spiritual generations and have the most spiritual gifts. They are our fullest potential! Rainbow children are more interested in giving than in receiving. Due to their high vibrations, these children commonly do not choose to be born into dysfunctional families. They have no earthly karma to work through, so they are free to live to their highest ambitions.
Parenting these spiritual generations can be a challenge. Teaching them becomes even more difficult within a school system structure that was built during the industrial revolution and is designed so each student experiences the same curriculum, learns at the same pace and does not cause disruptions. Yet, one of the soul purposes of an Indigo is to cause purposeful disruptions — to change what no longer works. Adults often feel that education is going down hill because kids just don’t care. We might suggest that it isn’t that they don’t care, but rather, the system and those entrusted to run the system don’t understand the needs of star children. As the parent or caretaker of one of these special souls, your job is to keep them safe and support them in their life purpose. Part of your life purpose was accepting the challenge and joy of raising a profoundly spiritually gifted soul. Instead of fighting it, enjoy the journey of looking through the eyes of a “star!” All children should be cherished and loved for who they are — not what we want them to be. a Eric Earll is a psychic and spiritual teacher and Bert Allen is a psychic medium, spiritual teacher and healer.

is, “I need help. I don’t feel calm.” Help your child by refraining from adding to the fire. Then, layer in other parenting strategies proven by neuroscience to decrease anger and anxiety, and increase peace and happiness. If you’ve read dozens of parenting books, attended seminars and found that advice from your doctors, teachers, and therapists simply doesn’t work for your child, please know this: you are not failing your child. Traditional strategies are failing you. Your child is unique and has gifts, even if
you don’t know how to draw them out yet. Kari, who was at the end of her rope learned this: “My daughter’s temperament won’t change, that is a fact.

In this lifetime, I’ve never had any children of my own. I came briefly under fire at a tribal college while teaching Children’s Literature. I was a full-time Composition and Literature Instructor at Oglala Lakota College. I discussed my predicament with Cedric Red Feather, a wise Mandan elder from Ft. Berthold. “The next time anyone brings this up with you,” he said, “tell them you have vast experience in the literary field…and as for the ‘children’s’ aspect of Children’s Literature, just remind them that you yourself were once a child.” I told this anecdotally to my class, and they accepted the inherent wisdom that had been imparted and were kind about it. I had no problems after that. On another occasion, I asked Cedric whether he thought my inability to have kids this time around was karmic. Instead, he said something really lovely. He said to me, “You have many children. They are your students.” There’s some truth in his insightful response. I teach at a community college. Although the students literally are not children, there’s so much more to the job than PowerPoints and lesson plans. We have students from cultures around the world. I teach various writing and literature courses to students from the United States, as well as from Iran, Ethiopia, China, Mongolia, Nigeria, France, Russia, Thailand, Vietnam, Tibet and Somalia. In office visits, they come with academic concerns, tales of triumph over personal tragedies, and philosophic truths. I always dreamed of having children of my own when I was in my early twenties. I even had names picked out: the boys would be Jared, Justin and Brandon, and the girls, Tiffany, Chantelle and Wendy. Thereafter, I focused upon career, art, writing and relationships. That left little time and energy for creating a family. The aforenamed, hypothetical progeny remained unsprouted seeds in the over-cultivated fields of my imagination.
In looking more deeply at the issue of “raising children,” I revisted Kahlil Gibran’s beautiful, prophetic, autobiographical spiritual treatise, The Prophet. On reading the words excerpted above, I underwent a shift in my own consciousness. I no longer regret not having given birth. I would be a terrible mother. I would view the children as extensions of myself — as reflections of who I am. It would be about me, not them. I would love them unconditionally, but I would secretly need their unconditional acceptance in return. If any of them rebelled — as children inevitably seem to do — I would be devastated. I would never recover. It has generally been agreed among spiritual teachers, writers and wisdom purveyors that the children coming into existence over the past several decades are old souls. They seem to know at a very early age why they’re here. I’ve heard them called Crystals, Indigos and Earth Angels. We run across them in public places, talking to their parents in a manner that makes us feel as though we’re witnessing an alternate universe. We hear the very young child voicing a preference and telling the adult what to do. The child speaks with premature eloquence, correcting some false notion of the parent’s, or else responding to a rhetorical question in a way that seems to come from a place of infinite wisdom. We should feel honored if we happen to be among the ones who usher in these very exceptional beings. With any luck, those of us who braved up and accepted that assignment will recognize that we are not shaping a human life, guiding a little person, or raising a miniature version of ourselves. We are doing something more akin to midwifing a consciousness. At this point, I will inevitably run into trouble with those actually living in a family unit, trying to feed, clothe, shelter, educate and spiritually direct one or more little humans. They will complain that I have no right to talk about raising children when I have none of my own. To them I respond, “Consider for a moment… I was once a child myself.” a Janet Michele Red Feather, J.D., M.A., is a tenured English faculty member at Normandale Community College.

Words of Wisdom by Nadine Penny Need a pick-me-up? Then nourish your soul with a little child’s play this October! Take your kids to a pumpkin patch and frolic in the corn pit, giggle with your friends as you lose yourselves in an autumnal maze and play dress-up as you embrace the happy of Halloween! Remember: play is more than just fun and games! Research reveals that playfulness busts stress, boosts creativity (and enhances the intuitive right side of our brain) and improves our relationships with others by fostering friendship and trust. And of course, all that playful activity is good for our physical health, too, which makes playtime a divine time that keeps us young at heart, mind and soul! a Nadine Penny attained her M.A. from the University of Denver in Counseling Psychology.
