Brenda Hoffman - Your Creations: Macro to Micro - February 18, 2019


Dear Ones,

You wish others would tell you how to live your life.

Ah, such a statement makes you angry for you are seemingly uninterested in anyone informing you who you should be.

Yet, in your dream creations, you run hither and yon accepting this and that advice. You do so because you do not believe creation can be as easy as having fun. So it is you have not yet fully claimed your being.

Pequeño Fragmento del Informe del Oleaje de Solara para Febrero 2019 ~ HACER UN MUNDO MEJOR ~ Feb 17, 2019




¡Bienvenidos al Año del Cerdo de Tierra Marrón! De todos los signos del horóscopo chino, el Cerdo o Jabalí tiene el corazón más puro. Esto hace que sea un año de regresar al Corazón.

It's time to walk out of the realm of illusion and return to AUTHENTICITY and PURE LOVE.

Shanta Gabriel for Archangel Gabriel - Take time to bless that which you have and ask for what you want - February 17, 2019



 
Take time to bless that which you have and ask for what you want.

Dear One,

You may be finding yourself in a time of questioning and dissatisfaction with your life. However, this is also a time of great opportunity. Every moment of your conscious awareness creates the qualities of your future moments. You can ask for those qualities you feel are missing from your life now, and they will come to you from your sincere prayer.

The intensity continues to accelerate as all frequency as consciousness, matter, shifts.

The potentials for expanded awareness and true love embodiment, as well as auspicious synchronicity in connection to your ascension process as continued new levels of expanded awareness, are limitless.

We have allowed ourselves to experience what life is like on planet Earth through those of you who have opened yourselves up to us to that extent, and we are very excited to report to all of you that the energies that are all around you are having a profound effect on your lives. And this is true whether you feel them or not.

It is time again to stop, quiet yourself and listen!

(Smiling) If you set aside and allow yourself the time to hear what is being relayed to you, thing will become clear and concise. Your Earth plane is heading into some very interesting times…take a moment and prepare. Every single gift you have will be needed. ~ Creator

Lena Stevens - Patricia Liles - Full Moon Update 2-19-19 - Feb 15, 2019



Full Moon is Tuesday, February 19 at 8:53 AM Mountain Standard Time (MST).

This full moon activates our intuition and emotional side at the same time as inviting us to take more responsibility for the organization of the details connected with our intentions. Creativity and inspiration are key words for this full moon and we need to give our imagination some room to play and dream. We can put off the organization of details as we remind ourselves that life is not all seriousness and growth. There needs to be time for the inner child to express through creativity without any attachment to a specific goal.

“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

We are susceptible to the same types of feelings that you are, but we do not feel them as intensely as you do. We still know the difference between joy and fear, experientially. But the experience of the difference between those two states of being is much different from your experience of that same difference. We are non-physical beings. Therefore, we have no bodies to hold onto an emotion.

Ron Head - The Council - Low energies and Protection - Feb 16, 2019




A question has been asked regarding low energies and protection. This has not been, because of his former training, an issue for this channel, and therefore we have not addressed it previously. We see that it is, however, of interest to more than a few. We will have a short discussion of the topic today. Here is the question that was asked:

“How can one protect themselves from lower vibrational energies and prevent them from feeding on the energy at any given time.”

Jennifer Farley - The Creator - Do Not Feed… - February 16, 2019


Do Not Feed… 






As the next wave prepares to arrive, The Universe is asking you to prepare as well. It may feel as if chaos and fear are growing. It is important to remember that when something is afraid or backed into a corner, it will do its best to appear larger and more fearsome than it really is. What is your role in all of this? Keep your thoughts/actions focused unconditional love and compassion. Do not feed chaos with more chaos or fear. Those of you that know your power are the ones that will bring your Earth plane out of what it is experiencing now. ~ Creator

Tenéis la expresión de que “el mundo es vuestra ostra”, y es cierto, y la perla que hay dentro sois vosotros. Tras tantas vidas de lucha y una multitud de retos, hoy estáis en los pasos hacia la Ascensión. Habéis mantenido vuestra cabeza bien alta y siempre os habéis levantado tras las experiencias más desafiantes. De alguna manera está bien que no podáis recordar todas vuestras primeras experiencias, porque serían demasiado pesadas para vuestra mente. Naturalmente, estaban intercaladas entre vidas que no fueron tan demandantes, pero durante todo el tiempo el énfasis estuvo en vuestra evolución. El grado de retos que se os dio siempre fue con

L’Aura Pleiadian - Self Awareness Cannot Be Taught ~ It is Unconditional Love or it is Not Love - Feb 16, 2019





We have the narcissists, the projectors, caught up so much in their own self-deception, that they are not able to develop any sense of self-awareness.

Yet, at the higher levels, these controlling manipulators, masters at getting others to do what they want, are too, high level spiritual beings, at the highest levels.

Shelley Young - Archangel Gabriel - Daily Message - Saturday, February 16, 2019


 

Dear Ones, there is much energetic power in a single word. If you are feeling challenged you can activate what it is you are wishing to experience by simply finding the word that expresses what you would prefer. For example, let us suppose you are having trouble physically doing something such as opening a jar. If you try and struggle, simply say the word “strong” and try again. You will find you have activated the energetic boost you require. A single word is the most powerful expression of its unique energy. And you have so many to choose from! A new word will automatically shift the energy of your situation and point you in a new direction with a different outcome. Adjusting your energy does not need to be a complicated process. You are the captain of your own ship and can redirect any time you like through the empowered choice of a new intention which can be perfectly expressed by a single word. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young

Galactic Federation Update

There has been a consortium of beings contacting us lately from 13th dimensional beings on down. Most contacts are with the 7D, 6D, and 5D beings. Pleiadians, Orion Council of Light, Arcturians, Andromedans and Sirians. They are deeply concerned with the direction of Humanity and the Earth and are now activating the ground crew, those who incarnated for these times. It is said for these times, God/Creator/ Great Spirit has given its best. This process is also extremely agitating the lower realms, those in the lower 4D and those in 3D who have aligned with the darker forces.

Dear Ascending Family,

Most of us can feel morality and culture being eroded at an increasing pace, but very few people recognize that this is by design. Until we can see the intentional distortions being offered up as the norm and identify the hidden motivations to herd an unaware humanity into consent with dark forces, we do not have free choice. Two of the main factions responsible for this are being given a make-over, to be sold to the public as something they are not. These are complex forces, mixing two energies that were organic to the earth realm, but that have been hijacked and amplified by

You have an expression that the world is your oyster and it is true, and the pearl inside is you. After so many lives of struggle and a multitude of challenges you stand today on the steps of Ascension. You have held your heads up high and always risen up after the more trying experiences. In some ways it is as well you cannot remember all of your earlier experiences as they would weigh heavy on your mind. Of course they were interspersed with lives that were not so demanding, but the whole time the emphasis was on your evolution. Always the degree of challenge you were given

They may seem challenging but, all these questions can be answered if you choose to converse with The Universe. Your life is yours and you can do with it what you will. You have a choice to sit in a corner, limit yourself and say things are impossible or you can find what truly inspires you, take action and move forward.

Shelley Young - Archangel Gabriel Daily Message - Friday, February 15, 2019




There is an interesting phenomenon that is happening on earth. Traditionally people who were on their healing/enlightenment journeys would do their healing work remotely when it came to pastlives and the retrieval of soul fragments, often through the use of meditation, dream states, or hypnosis. While this was certainly adequate, this has been changing over the past few years, which is another mile marker of how far you have evolved.

The Higher WE Continue to Go (Vibrationally),
The More WE Remember PURE LOVE through our own Unification /Re-Union from deep within...


Aloha Love Family,


Hearts are BURSTING WIDE OPEN ALL OVER THE PLANET.... as MORE AWAKEN every day.


The early phases of SOUL/human AWAKENING is a challenging one, because it challenges everything we once "thought".... and as a part of the process of our bodies waking up/coming into consciousness, every fear, every suppressed emotion, every compromise, every hurt... it all has to come up (or down) and out. It's physically and emotionally uncomfortable (for the masculine energy it's "excruciating")... yet it's very necessary for our Divinity to surface/emerge, for the PURE LOVE OF OUR SOUL to become visible/felt and for us to REMEMBER all that we forgot.....

KRYON, a través de Lee Carroll - Mensajito Malvavisco - Feb 14, 2019






Del Libro 14 de Kryon "El Nuevo Humano"

Viene la Evolución del ADN

El ADN del ser humano está listo para cambiar y transformarse. Nunca lo verás en un microscopio, porque no es químico; es Física. Escucha un momento, porque ya has visto cómo funciona esto. El 90% del ADN que hasta aquí era basura, ahora tu ciencia lo comprende. La ciencia ahora entiende que este 90% es información - un manual - un panel de control para los genes. Pero todavía es un misterio en cuanto a qué contiene realmente o cómo entrega la información a los genes.

Lisa Renee - Clearing from Other Timelines


Clearing from Other Timelines



As a natural part of spiritual Ascension, we will connect into other timelines where the true historical record was erased from our conscious mind memories, but our higher consciousness body is surfacing the memory because it needs to be witnessed. Clearly, when the cellular memories in our body are ignited from the changing magnetic fields and stellar activations and we have no context for biological-spiritual Ascension that shifts our consciousness into other Timelines, this can be disorienting. When this does occur many people feel deeply confused and isolated. This is why the knowledge that this is occurring on the planet is not given to the people, to invalidate them and then hijack and control their Awakening process.

En este momento se están llevando a cabo negociaciones intensas en los niveles más altos del poder mundial, tanto en secreto como en público, según coinciden múltiples fuentes. Dicen que esto podría dar lugar a anuncios de grandes cambios para la Tierra a principios de marzo. La lucha por el poder en Washington, DC, también se dirige hacia una especie de clímax, como puede verse en la amenaza del presidente de los Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, de declarar una emergencia nacional.

Jamye Price - Interaction - Feb 14, 2019




Blessed Being, your Ascension path through separation is to find connection. This is the evolution that is before you. It is a gradual progression in the physical realm, for the flow of time supports deeper understanding through experience.


In the conditional realm of separation, you are experiencing the blessing of duality. This mirror offers you choice to connect, and choosing connection is your work. In this blessing of duality, you are choosing your yes and your no, yet connecting consciously with your in-formation of Love.

Dianne Robbins - The Heart now leads the way -

and we recommend it highly to you on land.

Wake up Call: St Germain, Feb 14, 2019


If we ever go to the place where we are showing our hearts in a wonderful kind of way, it will be as if we have always felt that way, and it is true, we have. We are originally from a place of Love, and when we show that love it is in a grin, a smile, a happy face, a side view of who we are. It is a tremendous way of being who we are being, and showing others that even though we may sometimes feel only to look at them with a stare, or in an upset way, or an unhappy feeling of emptiness, it is always based from Love, or we would not even look at each other. We would not even acknowledge that we are all in the same place and doing the same kind of thing that others have likely done at one time or another, in this lifetime and others.

Shelley Young - Archangel Gabriel Daily Message - Thursday, February 14, 2019


Love is a beautiful combination of acceptance and connection. On this day that focuses on love, we celebrate your heart connections with you.

What if you don’t have a beloved in your life? You can still celebrate that connection because your soul always knows exactly how to connect with the energy of your next great love. Simply stop, still yourself, and feel their presence energetically. Honour their existence, and feel the love that already exists between the two of you!

An event in human affairs of enormous significance is approaching rapidly.


The mainstream media have been avoiding issues of real significance, while attempting to draw your attention towards distractions which are intended to confuse and divide you so that you live in anxiety and fear. Politics is a game played by influential people who are blinded by their own self-importance and driven by their desire for power over others, and who are supported by the mainstream media, while both are controlled and manipulated by a tiny but very powerful elite who have unlimited financial resources,

The Beacon… 

 

It is time to keep your eyes wide open. There may be people and situations being designed specifically to move you into ‘fear mode’. Some may attempt to ‘sell you’ beliefs and ideas that do not resonate. Many have chosen to stay asleep in the comfort of the mass consciousness, ignoring the mounting energy engulfing your world and choosing to remain blissfully unaware that things are changing at break-neck speed. Free will dictates that you get to decide what works and does not work for you!

Truth cuts through the matrix like a knife. Transparency glitches algorithms hard wired to secrecy and deception. Trailblazing light into darkness is speaking truth.

February Issue

Here we are in February, and within this 30th Kryon Anniversary year I'm amazed to suddenly start getting so many Kryon channeled validations! It's almost like they are now coming in waves. First the confirmation of "the coming cold," and now magnetics!


When Kryon arrived in 1989, it took another four years for me to really begin channelling in public. 1993 saw the release of Kryon Book One, "The End Times," and Kryon Book Two, "Don't Think Like a Human" followed in 1994. In these books, Kryon started using the term "Kryon of magnetic service." It's actually quite a funny title, but that's what was given to me!
