“…… Should I use Doctors and Drugs to Heal Me or Spiritual Methods?

"Dear Kryon, I have heard that you should stay natural and not use the science on the planet for healing. It does not honor God to go to a doctor. After all, don't you say that we can heal with our minds? So why should we ever go to a doctor if we can do it ourselves? Not only that, my doctor isn't enlightened, so he has no idea about my innate or my spiritual body needs. What should I do?"

First, Human Being, why do you wish to put so many things in boxes? You continue to want a yes and no answer for complex situations due to your 3D, linear outlook on almost everything. Learn to think out of the 3D box! Look at the heading of this section [above]. It asks which one should you do. It already assumes you can't do both because they seem dichotomous.

Let's use some spiritual logic: Here is a hypothetical answer, "Don't go to a doctor, for you can heal everything with your mind." So now I will ask: How many of you can do that in this room right now? How many readers can do that with efficiency right now? All of you are old souls, but are you really ready to do that? Do you know how? Do you have really good results with it? Can you rid disease and chemical imbalance with your mind right now?

I'm going to give you a truth, whether you choose to see it or not. You're not ready for that! You are not yet prepared to take on the task of full healing using your spiritual tools. Lemurians could do that, because Pleiadians taught them how! It's one of the promises of God, that there'll come a day when your DNA works that efficiently and you will be able to walk away from drug chemistry and the medical industry forever, for you'll have the creator's energy working at 100 percent, something you saw within the great masters who walked the earth.

This will be possible within the ascended earth that you are looking forward to, dear one. Have you seen the news lately? Look out the window. Is that where you are now? We are telling you that the energy is going in that direction, but you are not there yet.

Let those who feel that they can heal themselves begin the process of learning how. Many will be appreciative of the fact that you have some of the gifts for this now. Let the process begin, but don't think for a moment that you have arrived at a place where every health issue can be healed with your own power. You are students of a grand process that eventually will be yours if you wish to begin the quantum process of talking to your cells. Some will be good at this, and some will just be planting the seeds of it.

Now, I would like to tell you how Spirit works and the potentials of what's going to happen in the next few years. We're going to give the doctors of the planet new inventions and new science. These will be major discoveries about the Human body and of the quantum attributes therein.

Look at what has already happened, for some of this science has already been given to you and you are actually using it. Imagine a science that would allow the heart to be transplanted because the one you have is failing. Of course! It's an operation done many times a month on this planet. That information came from the creator, did you realize that? It didn't drop off the shelf of some dark energy library to be used in evil ways.

So, if you need a new heart, Lightworker, should you go to the doctor or create one with your mind? Until you feel comfortable that you can replace your heart with a new one by yourself, then you might consider using the God-given information that is in the hands of the surgeon. For it will save your life, and create a situation where you stay and continue to send your light to the earth! Do you see what we're saying?

You can also alter that which is medicine [drugs] and begin a process that is spectacular in its design, but not very 3D. I challenge you to begin to use what I would call the homeopathic principle with major drugs. If some of you are taking major drugs in order to alter your chemistry so that you can live better and longer, you might feel you have no choice. "Well, this is keeping me alive," you might say. "I don't yet have the ability to do this with my consciousness, so I take the drugs."

In this new energy, there is something else that you can try if you are in this category. Do the following with safety, intelligence, common sense and logic. Here is the challenge: The principle of homeopathy is that an almost invisible tincture of a substance is ingested and is seen by your innate. Innate "sees" what you are trying to do and then adjusts the body's chemistry in response. Therefore, you might say that you are sending the body a "signal for balance." The actual tincture is not large enough to affect anything chemically - yet it works!

The body [innate] sees what you're trying to do and then cooperates. In a sense, you might say the body is healing itself because you were able to give it instructions through the homeopathic substance of what to do. So, why not do it with a major drug? Start reducing the dosage and start talking to your cells, and see what happens. If you're not successful, then stop the reduction. However, to your own amazement, you may often be successful over time.

You might be able to take the dosage that you're used to and cut it to at least a quarter of what it was. It is the homeopathy principle and it allows you to keep the purpose of the drug, but reduce it to a fraction of a common 3D dosage. You're still taking it internally, but now it's also signaling in addition to working chemically. The signal is sent, the body cooperates, and you reduce the chance of side effects.

You can't put things in boxes of yes or no when it comes to the grand system of Spirit. You can instead use spiritual logic and see the things that God has given you on the planet within the inventions and processes. Have an operation, save your life, and stand and say, "Thank you, God, for this and for my being born where these things are possible." It's a complicated subject, is it not? Each of you is so different! You'll know what to do, dear one. Never stress over that decision, because your innate will tell you what is appropriate for you if you're willing to listen. ….”

Philips signs extensive echography contract with Delft hospital

DutchNews.nl, May 18, 2015

Dutch electronics giant Philips on Monday announced the signing of a 15-year agreement to supply echography technology to the Reinier de Graaf hospital in Delft.

It is the biggest-ever contract Philips has signed for medical equipment in the Netherlands, and gives the hospital much faster access to this diagnostic tool. The partnership with Philips is expected to help the hospital optimise its operating results in the long-term. 

The contract, an extension to an existing agreement, deals with the replacement and maintenance of all the echography systems in the hospital. The new generation of echography equipment will be used to investigate the stomach area, in pregnancy tests and in the treatment of rheumatism.

The Reinier de Graaf hospital employs around 3,000 staff. As well as its main location in Delft, it has hospitals in Voorburg, Naaldwijk and The Hague-Ypenburg. 

Philips, which started life as a manufacturer of light bulbs, is sharpening its focus to concentrate on healthcare technology. 

Echography is a radiologic technique in which deep structures of the body are visualised by recording the reflections (echoes) of ultrasonic waves directed into the tissues.

Mozart-Loving Chickens May Answer Quest for Healthier Nugget

Yong Peng, Malaysia. In barns filled with classical music and lighting that changes to match the hues outside, rows of chickens are fed a diet rich in probiotics, a regimen designed to remove the need for the drugs and chemicals that have tainted the global food chain.

As food giants face growing pressure to offer healthier produce, Southeast Asian poultry firm Kee Song Group says its use of “good” bacteria in feed and water means it can meet one the industry’s biggest challenges: how to mass produce drug and hormone-free poultry at a reasonable price.

A series of scandals in the last few years —from melamine-tainted milk powder in China, horse meat supplied as beef in Europe and growth drugs causing lameness in US cattle — has triggered a consumer backlash over food standards and safety.

Recently, Tyson Foods pledged to eliminate the use of human antibiotics in chicken by 2017, one of the most aggressive timetables yet by a US poultry firm.

The top American poultry producer, which supplies fast-food chains such as McDonald’s, is among a number of groups globally incorporating probiotics into feed.

“For meat producers, reputation risks are becoming stronger driving companies to focus on safe ingredients specially in Europe and the United States,” said Pawan Kumar, director for food and agricultural research at Rabobank in Singapore.

Kee Song says the cost to produce drug-free chickens using probiotics is now only 10-12 percent more than using antibiotic-fed poultry. It sells these birds at a 30 percent premium in stores, far less than expensive free-range organic chicken.

The firm annually produces around 4 million drug-free birds at its Malaysian farms in Yong Peng, 125 km north-west of Singapore, and aims to expand sales to China and the West.

“Probiotics, either alone or in combination with essential oils and organic acids, are at the forefront of international approaches to replace antibiotics,” said Wayne Bryden, Professor of Animal Science at the University of Queensland.

Probiotics populate the gut with healthy bacteria in a bid to curb bad bacteria, while oils and organic acids are also often included in feed to aid digestion.

A team at the Australian university, partly funded by feed maker Ridley AgriProducts, have found in preliminary trials that using a probiotic can double the efficiency of use of protein from feed to boost weigh gain in livestock.

Superbugs

An estimated 80 percent of antibiotics used in the United States are administered to livestock with the use expected to surge by two thirds globally between 2010 and 2030.

Scientists are worried the practice could spur antibiotic-resistant superbugs.

McDonald’s has also pledged to eliminate chickens fed on human antibiotics at its US restaurants and is looking at similar steps in Asia.

“In Asia Pacific, we will be working with our supply partners and relevant experts to implement this enhanced measure,” a company spokesperson said via email.

While demand for healthier products is increasing fast in the West, some experts say that in parts of Asia customers will not be prepared to pay more for drug-free poultry, though China could be a promising market after high-profile food scares.

Mozart and blue lighting

In Kee Song’s Malaysian poultry farm, 20,000 chickens rest on saw dust in the dimly lit barns, with feed and water laced with probiotics being automatically pumped into feeding pans.

As well as playing Mozart, lighting is used in a bid to keep the birds tranquil with neon blue lighting turned on when the birds are taken for slaughter.

“Look at the environment, chickens stay healthy and happy here,” the firm’s Chairman Ong Kee Song told Reuters.

“Even the droppings don’t smell,” added Ong, who has been a vegetarian for 17 years after a stay at a Buddhist temple.

Traditional chicken farms are notorious for producing noxious fumes as well as loud noise from squawking birds.

Growth hormones mixed with feed can also produce oversized breasts and wings that underdeveloped legs struggle to support for more than a few steps.

Chia Tet Fatt, a molecular geneticist who previously was a professor at Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University teamed up with Kee Song to produce the probiotic used, lactobacillus, and confirmed chickens were not fed any drugs or antibiotics.

Tan Chee Kiang, vice president of Charoen Pokphand, the world’s biggest animal feed miller, also said the feed it supplied to Kee Song was free of antibiotics.

By not using drugs, the poultry farms need to maintain stringent cleanliness measures to avoid the risk of infection and it takes three days more than conventionally produced chickens to attain a commercially viable weight of 1.8 to 2.0 kg.

As well as supplying supermarkets, Kee Song also sells to some restaurants in Singapore, including French restaurant Cocotte, where the chicken is used for a signature dish.

Lawmaker Urges TNI to ‘Rethink’ TNI Virginity Tests

Jakarta Globe, Markus Junianto Sihaloho, May 17, 2015

for female recruits. (Antara Photo/Didik Suhartono)

Jakarta. A lawmaker from the House of Representatives’ Commission I, which oversees defense, intelligence and security affairs, has urged the Indonesian military to rethink its invasive virginity tests for female recruits.

Tubagus Hasanuddin, a politician from the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P), said on Sunday there was no connection between virginity and morals.

“If a non-virgin is robbed of her right to join the military, we need to rethink it,” he said, adding he did not condone premarital sex.

Tubagus, a former high-ranked military official, said by law there were eight criteria that recruits had to meet to be accepted into the Indonesian Armed Forces, or TNI, but being a virgin was not one of them.

The so-called two-finger test, which the TNI requires female recruits to take to gauge their morality, has sparked international condemnation, but has been defended by top military brass.

The commander of Indonesia’s armed forces, Gen. Moeldoko, asked reporters on Saturday:


TNI spokesman Maj. Gen. Fuad Basya, meanwhile, said it was an appropriate part of a medical checkup, used to determine the mental state of female recruits.

Human Rights Watch has demanded President Joko Widodo ask military hospitals immediately to stop administering the tests, which violate international human rights treaties that Indonesia has ratified.

Five-day workweek to kick off next year under amended labor law

Want China Times, CNA 2015-05-17

An amendment to the Labor Standards Act in Taiwan cleared the Legislative Yuan Friday, paving the way for a five-day workweek and for working hours per week to be reduced to 40 hours.

The amendments will be put into force Jan. 1, 2016.

Under the current labor law, normal working hours per day cannot exceed eight hours and working hours per two weeks cannot exceed 84 hours. If employers are found to be in violation of the law, they will be subject to fines of between NT$20,000 (US$657) and NT$300,000 (US$9,860).

Also, employers cannot cut their workers' wages under the pretense of "adjusting" normal working hours, the revised law stipulates.

Under the current law, employers must prepare attendance books for workers and keep them for one year. The amended law states that the attendance records should be kept for five years and that employers will face fines of between NT$90,000 (US$2,985) and NT$450,000 (US$14,790) if found to be in violation.

The revised law also stipulates that the attendance records should note the hours and minutes worked. When a worker asks for a copy of his or her attendance record, employers cannot refuse them.

The amended law also allows workers to adjust their working hours according to their circumstances, meaning that employers will have to, based on the needs of workers who have to take care of their families, allow them flexibility to adjust their start and finishing times within a range of one hour without changing the normal working hours per day.

The Ministry of Labor hailed the amended law as a "new milestone" in 14 years, referring to the last amendment in 2001, when working hours were reduced to 84 hours per two weeks, saying that it puts Taiwan on a par with developed countries.

It will also help workers to maintain a balance between their work and home life, and help boost economic and social development, according to the ministry.

Taiwan fast food chains to take big hit if bird flu worsens in US: COA

Want China Times, CNA 2015-05-16

Taiwanese fast food chains will take the biggest hit of all Taiwanese industries if an outbreak of bird flu in the United States worsens, as it could require a comprehensive ban on chicken imports from that country, the Council of Agriculture (COA) said Friday.

The number of US states from which poultry products have been barred from entering Taiwan have gone up to 15 from nine due to the spread of bird flu there, said Chang Su-san, head of the council's Bureau of Animal and Plant Health Inspection and Quarantine.

The ban might expand to cover all states if the outbreak continues to spread, which will hit fast food restaurants the hardest, as they rely on imports for over half of the chicken they serve, said Wang Chung-shu, deputy head of the council's Department of Animal Industry.

Free range chicken accounts for the majority of the chicken produced in Taiwan, but fast food chains, caterers and food manufacturers prefer cheaper frozen imported chickens or locally produced battery chickens over locally produced free range birds.

Taiwan imports some 140,000 tonnes of chicken from abroad every year, mostly from the US, Wang said.

Indonesia urged to stop military 'virginity tests'

Yahoo – AFP, 14 May 2015

Women joining the military in Indonesia must undergo an intrusive test to
see if their hymen is intact (AFP Photo/Bay Ismoyo)

Jakarta (AFP) - Indonesia faced calls Thursday to stop virginity tests for women seeking to join the military, with a leading rights group calling the practice "cruel, inhuman and degrading".

Human Rights Watch said interviews with female members of the military showed that the examination, normally conducted through a "two-finger test" to ensure the hymen is intact, was required of women joining the armed forces or planning to marry military officers.

The armed forces defended checking female applicants' virginity, saying that people of low morals could "damage the military", but denied that those planning to marry officers were also subject to the checks.

This is just the latest controversy around virginity tests in conservative, Muslim-majority Indonesia, with the national police facing criticism last year for forcing female applicants to undergo the examinations.

In a statement, HRW said the military "should immediately end the use of so-called virginity tests, which violate the prohibition of cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment under international human rights law".

The group described the practice as gender-based violence and said it was "scientifically baseless" as a method of proving that a woman was a virgin.

HRW interviewed 11 recruits and officers' fiancees who had undergone the tests at military hospitals in several cities on the main island of Java. They also spoke to people involved in conducting the examinations.

Those tested described the practice as painful, embarrassing and traumatic.

"I felt humiliated. It was very tense," said one applicant tested in 2013, cited anonymously in HRW's report. She added that she was "shocked" that the doctor performing the test was a man.

"It’s against the rights of every woman," she said.

The test has been standard for decades and one retired air force officer, also cited anonymously, recalled having it done in 1984.

She said four years later she got married but could not make love to her husband for months "because of the trauma that I had with that 'virginity test'."

Military spokesman Fuad Basya defended the tests, saying they stop immoral women from entering the armed forces.

If a person has low morals, "then she cannot join the military. Because if she joins the military it will damage the military, which must handle a huge duty. They are responsible for the country's sovereignty, the unity of the territory, the safety of the nation," he told AFP.

The HRW report was timed to coincide with a meeting next week on the Indonesian island of Bali organised by the International Committee of Military Medicine, a body that fosters cooperation between medical services of armed forces worldwide.

Psychiatry and Buddhism trending as China seeks inner peace

Want China Times, Staff Reporter 2015-05-13

China has seen a surge in the number of people seeking inner peace, leading to soaring demand for psychiatrists and reviving interest in Buddhism, according to Guangzhou's Southern Weekly.

After three decades of rapid economic growth that have made China the world's second-largest economy, happiness has now become a popular topic, the paper said.

"No matter what, Chinese people do not live happily," said Xiao Zeping, the superintendent of the Shanghai Mental Health Center, at an annual applied psychology conference held in Guangzhou in March.

Li Yan, the head of the psychiatry and sleeping disorder department at Guangzhou Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, said the number of visits made by patients to the department rose from 7,000 in 2005 to 50,000 last year.

"The incidences of depression, anxiety disorder and schizophrenia in China are higher than the global average," she said.

This has led to the rapid growth of the self-help industry in China. Psychology information website Xinli001 has seen its number of registered users grow to 9.31 million since being launched four years ago.

Urbanization is blamed for people's unhappiness, with Wuhan University professor Huang Yongming arguing in a study that pollution and food safety issues are the main sources of people's misery.

Oxford University clinical psychology professor Mark Williams also said that Chinese people desperately want to find a way to maintain inner peace at a time of rapid change and regular anxiety.

Buddhism has become the top choice for most people, the newspaper said, citing government data that showed the number of Buddhist venues growing from 13,000 in 1997 to 33,000 in 2013.

Chinese people have also become interested in meditation, the newspaper said.

Over 100 temples across China hold meditation camps every year, and a group of executives including Huayi Brothers chair Wang Zhongjun and Tsingtao Brewery chair Jin Zhiguo, who went to business school together, traveled to Taiwan to practice meditation at the Fo Guang Shan monastery in May 2014.

Gong Jun, a professor at Sun Yat-Sen University in Guangzhou, said the number of applicants to the Institute of Comparative Religious Studies has also increased in recent years.

When China's president, Xi Jinping, said in February that people having spiritual beliefs will give better hope for the nation and strength to the country, it was also interpreted by religious groups as progress.

Wang Zuoan, head of China's State Administration of Religious Affairs, also urged media outlets in February not to avoid religious issues, which were deemed sensitive in the past, because religion has been recognized as a force that helps build a peaceful society.

Ride-sharing service Sidecar adds marijuana delivery

San Francisco (AFP) - Ride-sharing service Sidecar on Tuesday added medical marijuana to the list of goods it will promptly deliver to customers in San Francisco.

"Now, you can order medical marijuana and a Sidecar will deliver it to your door," the San Francisco-based startup whose list of backers includes British tycoon Sir Richard Branson said in a blog post.

Early this year, Sidecar began delivering flowers, groceries, hot food and other items in its hometown as it began expanding the same-day service to other US cities.

At the time, Sidecar co-founder Sunil Paul said that he expected same-day delivery services to represent half the company's business by the end of this year.

"Our vision is that one day any business will be able to take an order and get it to the customer in an hour, and Sidecar will be the service that powers this capability," Paul said.

Half of Sidecar trips in San Francisco now involve deliveries, according to the company.

Sidecar teamed with Meadow, which runs a website where people can order medical marijuana from licensed dispensaries.

Orders are secured in lock boxes for trips, and drivers are card-holding medical marijuana patients who are also members of local collectives shipping the pot, according to Sidecar.

Deliveries are promised within an hour of ordering.

"The delivery of medical marijuana, with its layers of complexity, is the perfect use case to highlight the power of our delivery service," Sidecar said.

"We are capable of handling the same-day delivery of anything, if it's legal and fits in a car."

Sidecar charges for "on-demand" deliveries start at $5 and climb with distance and during commute or late night hours, but come with fees waived if items don't arrive on time.

Paul has maintained that moving people along with packages enables Sidecar to charge bargain delivery prices while getting items quickly to destinations.

America’s Pfizer invests $87.5m in Dutch pharma firm

DutchNews.nl, May 12, 2015

American pharmaceuticals giant Pfizer has invested $87.5m in a minority stake in Dutch biotech firm AM Pharma, the two companies announced on Tuesday

AM Pharma, based in Bunnik, is developing a medicine to combat acute kidney injury and is due to publish the results of its research into the drug, named recAP, next year. There is currently no drug to treat the condition which is suffered by some two million people in the western world, AM Pharma says. 

If the results are promising, Pfizer will then take over the entire company for up to $512.5m, the agreement signed between the two companies states.

Dutch biotech companies are currently in demand. In November, Biomarin took over Leiden company Prosensa for $680m and Galapagos, which is Dutch Belgian, is also being stalked. 

AM Pharma is carrying out Phase II trials of its drug on 50 volunteers, and once that has been completed successfully will move onto Phase III trials which are used to assess whether medicines can be approved.

Forty-five out of 560 tea drinks tested by Taiwan's Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have been found with excessive levels of pesticide residue, the FDA said Saturday.

All the problematic drinks must be pulled off shelves, the FDA said.

The FDA began to sample tea drinks for tests after several tea drink chains were discovered recently to be selling pesticide-tainted tea drinks, triggering public concerns.

So far, the FDA has sampled 831 tea drinks, and tests have been completed on 560 of the samples.

Liberia free of Ebola, says World Health Organization

The WHO has declared Liberia free of Ebola after no new cases were reported for 42 days. However, officials have said they will be cautious about celebrating as the virus is not yet gone from the region.

Deutsche Welle, 9 May 2015


The World Heath Organization (WHO) has released a report on Saturday calling Liberia free of the Ebola disease, after twice the virus' incubation period passed without any new cases. The last Ebola patient in Liberia died on March 27, the organization said in a statement.

WHO recorded more than 4,700 Ebola deaths in Liberia, and over 10,500 infections. While the number of infections was lower than in neighboring Sierra Leone, Liberia lost more patients to the disease; it was hard-hit by the outbreak due to a lack of health services.

Officials and survivors said they are cautious about openly celebrating the end of Ebola in Liberia, as the virus is yet not out of the region. "We're proud of what we collectively managed to do but we need to remain vigilant," said Peter Jan Graaff, head of the United Nations Mission for Ebola Emergency Response.

Elsewhere in West Africa, however, new cases were reported this week in Sierra Leone and in Guinea, the other two countries hit hardest by the Ebola outbreak. According to WHO's latest situation report, each country recorded nine cases for the week ending May 3.

Some 11,020 people have died since the Ebola outbreak began in December 2013, while more than 26,000 have been infected.

“ .. The Role of Gaia in Human Consciousness

One of those times might be frightening for you to know about, since it was a full cooperation with Gaia for your termination, and a pandemic almost wiped humanity off the map. A pandemic! Now, you say, "What has that got to do with Human consciousness, Kryon?" Pay attention, dear ones, because this is the day where the teaching was given by my partner, and he put together the Nine Human Attributes. One of the attribute sets included three Gaia attributes and one of them was the consciousness of the planet. Gaia is related to Human consciousness!

Are you starting to connect the dots? You are connected to this planet in a profound and spiritual way. As goes humanity goes the planet's consciousness. Gaia, Mother Nature, whatever you want to call it, cooperates with Human consciousness. If you spend 1,000 years killing each other, then Gaia will do its best to cooperate with your desires! Gaia will look at Human consciousness and try to help with what you have shown you like to do! Did you know this role of Gaia with you? It's a partner with you, fast tracking what you give to it. You may wish to review what the indigenous of the planet still understand. Gaia is a partner!

Pandemic: Don't you find it odd that in the last 50 years, when you have a population of seven billion Human Beings, with up to 2,000 airplanes in the air at any given moment, going between almost every conceivable place, that there has not been a pandemic in your lifetime? There have been five starts of potential pandemics over the last 20 years, yet none became serious. Did any of you put this together? Dear ones, when the world was far less populated a few hundred years ago, with no mass travel to spread a virus, there were still millions wiped out by a pandemic. With the increased population and mass travel, there is far more danger today than before. It doesn't make sense, does it? What happened to stop it?

When you know humanity's relationship to Gaia, it makes sense. Gaia is a life-force that is your partner, watching you change the balance of light and dark and reflecting what Humans want. It has polarity, too! Perhaps it's time to start your meditations with thanking your planet Earth for supporting you in the spirituality of your Akash, for always being with you, a life-force that is always present. The ancients started their ceremonies in that way. Have you forgotten?

Ebola

Now, I've just set the stage for the next subject, haven't I? Ebola. Are you afraid yet? Gaia is a life-force that is a part of Human consciousness. My partner put it on the screen today so you could see the connections [during the lecture series]. Now it's time to connect the dots. Dear one, Gaia is in the battle, too, for here comes something scary that you haven't had in your lifetime and you're afraid of it - the potential of a pandemic on the planet.

There's a very famous film that has some dialogue that my partner will quote. Some of you will know it and some of you won't, but here it is: "Have a little fire, scarecrow?" What are you afraid of? Darkness? Gaia is in the battle with you and is actively pursuing solutions through light. The energy of the planet is with you in this fight! The ebola virus is a shock and a surprise. It is propelled by ignorance and fear, so it can flourish. Look at where it started and look at how it gets its ability to continue. It expands its fear and power easily with those who believe it's a curse instead of those who understand the science.

Villages are filled with those who refuse to leave their family members because they believe the disease is a curse! FEAR! Instead of understanding that they should be in isolation from the virus, the family dies together through ignorance and fear. This represents how darkness works. Are you going to become afraid also? Dear ones, ebola will be conquered. Know this and be at peace. Pray for light for those in the villages who are afraid, that they can know more about how to keep the spread of this disease and live to see their families. .”

Dutchman found not guilty of trying to sell his kidney via Marktplaats

DutchNews.nl, May 8, 2015

A man who advertised one of his kidneys for sale via the online auction house Marktplaats had the case against him dismissed by magistrates in Utrecht on Friday. 

The public prosecution department said the 40-year-old should do 60 hours community service for advertising his kidney for €50,000. The man’s lawyer, in turn, claimed in court he had only been interested in finding out what sort of reactions he would get to the advert. 

The magistrate said he believed this position, broadcaster Nos reports.  In addition, advertising a kidney for sale does not prove he actually planned to sell it, the court is quoted as saying. 

The only reaction the advert generated was a visit from the police who had been alerted by Marktplaats. 

The sale of organs is banned by law in the Netherlands. Although there have been other suspected attempts to sell organs, this is the first time the public prosecution department has taken legal action, Nos says.

United Nations (United States) (AFP) - Norway ranks as the world's best place to be a mother, well ahead of the United States which dropped to the 33rd spot in the annual scorecard released by Save the Children on Monday.

Somalia is the worst place, just below the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Central African Republic.

Save the Children released its 16th annual Mothers' Index, which rates 179 countries based on five indicators related to maternal health, education, income levels and the status of women.

This year, the United States dropped from number 31 on the list to 33, behind Japan, Poland and Croatia.

American women have a one in 1,800 risk of maternal death, the worst level of risk of any developed country in the world, according to the report.

An American woman is more than 10 times as likely to die in childbirth than a Polish woman.

Scandinavian countries have consistently taken the first spots in the Mothers' Index, with Norway this year beating out Finland which held the top spot last year.

Among the top ten, Australia is the only non-European country, at number nine.

France and Britain take the 23rd and 24th spot, below Canada at number 20.

The ten worst places are all sub-Saharan African countries, with Haiti tied with Sierra Leone for the 169th spot.

Nine of the bottom ten countries are wracked by conflict.

The disparity in terms of infant mortality is striking.

In the top 10 countries, one mother out of 290 will lose a child before the age of five. In the bottom 10, that rate stands at one in eight.

Dying young in Washington

Save the Children also looked at infant mortality rates in the world's 24 wealthiest capital cities and found Washington had the highest rate at 7.9 deaths per 1,000.

By comparison, Stockholm and Oslo had infant mortality rates at or below 2 deaths per 1,000.

Save the Children CEO Carolyn Miles said the data confirmed that a country's economic wealth is not the sole factor leading to happy mothers, but that policies need to be put in place.

In the case of Norway, "they do have wealth, but they also invest that wealth in things like mothers and children, as a very high priority," Miles said.

Save the Children also reported that mothers are having a tougher time in the world's expanding cities, with survival gaps between rich and poor widening.

Cities in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Ghana, India, Kenya, Madagascar, Nigeria, Peru, Rwanda, Vietnam and Zimbabwe have the highest gap for child survival, with poor children three to five times more likely to die than their affluent peers.

“… Mass Human Death

The final one, dear Human, is the hardest one for my partner and the one we wish to leave you with in this channeling tonight. This is the one that my partner doesn't want to even have me talk about. It's the appropriateness of mass death. For you, built in to your very essence is the honor for life, and the sorrow when it passes. It's correct and appropriate that this is there, and never let it be tempered. But the wisdom of understanding is also needed to help you get past some challenges of the Human heart.

"Dear Kryon, was the tsunami really necessary?" Yes it was. Almost 200,000 Human Beings passed over. It's an event that for you is filled with horror, sorrow, emotion, and challenge. Back in 1989, we told you of those that might have to leave the earth en masse, and here it is. Yet even my partner [Lee] asks the questions, "Why the children? Why the poorest parts of the earth? Why the seeming inappropriateness of all this death?"

And I say to you the same thing I said with respect to Terri: Do you understand yet that death is often as precious as life on this planet of many energies and lessons? They are not gone! They're all here [speaking from Kryon's perspective]. They're having a great time! They're joyful! It seems like a moment ago they leaned into the wind of birth with us beside them. We said, "How would you like to participate in an event that will change the compassion factor of the planet so that energies can move forward and provide faster acceleration of vibratory shift? How would you like to help create peace on earth through a consciousness shift within Gaia itself? And they said, "Show us the way!"

Do you understand why we are in love with humanity... that you would love the earth and the Universe so much that you would go through these things? So much of what you see is horrible tragedy, yet you're looking at the heroes of humanity as they deliver a gift that will change the very fabric of Gaia through the compassion created as a wave of humanity responds to their plight.

They knew the potentials and they went through with it. Even the children knew, for they're old souls within their divinity. There was so much compassion created at that time, in that one week, the earth has never seen anything like it in your lifetime. Billions of Humans were involved with a compassion that instantly went to the core of the planet. It went into the earth and it's still there. It changed the actual energy of where you walk and it planted a seeds that will grow that will indeed emerge later in Israel, and those surrounding Israel.

And that's what it's about. Yet some of you didn't want to hear that, did you? But they're here, with me now... and with you as well. How could you fit them all in this room, you might ask? They can fit on the head of a pin! That's interdimensional talk. They can go home in your purse or your pocket! That's interdimensional talk, too. And they've got a message for you that we've given before, but you can't hear it enough: "We did our part - now you do yours, Lighthouse! For the ones who remain are the only ones who can manipulate the tools we have helped create."

When you go home tonight, you're not going to be in a survival situation - in a tent in a tribe with no lights or clean water, with no food. You're not going to be in sorrow or despair. Instead, you go home to a warm place with plenty of food and friendship and the love of family. That's why you're the Lighthouses, because you have time for it. You've got the intellect for it. You're not in survival mode, as is so much of humanity on the earth. You have the education for it and the intuition for it. Now, do you understand why there are so many Lighthworkers in the western world? It's because your culture has created a situation where there's abundance of these things, and it allows you to lead the way in changing the energy of earth, instead of having all your time spent just trying to survive. Does this help you understand the responsibility of what you have before you?

Strike the light and send it to the Sudanese. Strike light and send it to those dark places with governments where there's corruption. Strike the light and send it to the scientists and researchers who already have the cures for the more virulent diseases on the planet, but can't begin their work due to the barriers of certain leadership and their old ways. Strike the light and send it to Israel and Palestine and get on with this solution! This is why you're here, and this is the agreement you made when you arrived and selected the culture you live in.

Achievable in your lifetime, it is. Peace and compassion will prevail. You shall see. You shall see.

And so it is.

Kryon

Jokowi: Revoke Licenses of Private Hospitals That Refuse KIS Patients

Jakarta Globe, Novy Lumanauw, May 04, 2015

Jakarta. President Joko Widodo has threatened to cancel the licenses of wayward private hospitals if they continue to turn away patients requesting medical care with Indonesia Health Cards, or KIS.

Joko argued the government would pay for the medical coverage to which KIS holders are entitled so private hospitals should provide them with the requested medical care.

The penalty of discriminating against KIS holders will be loss of license to operate in Indonesia, the president said.

“If private hospitals continue to refuse service to KIS-holding patients, then they will get their licenses revoked,” Joko said on Monday after distributing Indonesia Health and Indonesia Smart Cards, better known as KIS and KIP respectively in Indonesian.

“If KIS-holding patients don’t receive good service from a hospital, they should report it,” Joko added.

The government started distributing KISs and KIPs to low-income families last week after budget wrangling had delayed their production until early this year.

KIS is a social-welfare program that is aimed at extending universal health care coverage to poor and underprivileged Indonesians.

Likewise, KIP entitles its holders, targeted to be poor or underprivileged children, to receive free primary and secondary education and to government support at the tertiary level provided they meet certain standards.

"This Is Not Your Father’s New Age" – (Kryon Channelling by Lee Carroll)

Kryon.com, February 14, 2015

This live channelling was Given in Atlanta, Georgia

Lee Carroll
To help the reader, this channelling has been revisited [by Lee and Kryon] to provide even clearer understanding. Sometime information is even added. Often what happens live has implied energy within it, which carries a kind of communication that the printed page does not. So enjoy this enhanced message given in Atlanta Georgia, February 14, 2015.

Greetings, dear ones, I am Kryon of Magnetic Service. Twenty-five years ago, I discussed with you what is happening now. Back then, it was only a potential, but now it's your reality. This was not prophecy when I told you back then that there would be no Armageddon or World War Three. It was not prophecy, but a powerful potential. The entire reason for my being and the awakening of my partner was because of what you did. The victory it contains falls in the lap of the old soul, who has controlled the consciousness of the timing of it all.

Everything that has transpired during these years has been realized potential. That is to say that we see the potentials of what you might do, and report on that and only that. Much of what we see now is realized quickly. When we told you in 2012 there would be a new pope, 13 months later it happened. This was not prophecy, but rather a potential. We saw it coming because we have the overview and we knew of the anxiety of the existing pope, the health of the man, and we also knew of the potentials of a South American pope to come forward. All of these things should be a "connect the dots" for you. I come yet again, not with prophecy, but with information given with a congratulatory attitude of potential.

A real "new energy" is here.

Twenty-five years ago, I would have loved to have given you this channel, but you weren't ready. Now you sit in the energy we had predicted back then and are wise to what has happened. Right now, if you could superimpose Human emotion upon the creative source, it would be the attributes of delight and adulation - perhaps even the word proud. Dear Human Being, this is not your father's new age. We celebrate you for coming to this place in time!

This is critical information we give now, because in an assemblage like this, the ones who are listening and reading are warriors of light and old souls. These terms describe a Human Being who has been through history and has embraced esoteric belief for dozens of lifetimes. Many of you have awakened in this life to innate wisdom of spirituality. You have fought the battles of the old energy as a Lightworker many times, and you have become used to the way things work in an older energy. For thousands of years, the planet has not changed all that much, so you might have been involved in the same kind of dark-light battles over and over and, therefore, etched into your Akash are what we would call the spiritual rules of existence. However, now they're changing. So this message is for Lightworkers and old souls, and it includes some attributes we have talked about in the past, and also some new ones. Tonight we bring you some positive things that you need to know in this energy and some attributes that some would call admonitions of how to work in the new energy.

We started this conversation last week in the city you call Austin [Texas],* so let us begin from there. Dear ones, this new energy is a phrase you have heard for years. You were told, "The new age is upon you, and the new energy is arriving." Dear ones, it has arrived! Now it's starting to plant its seeds, and the attributes are very different from what you have experienced while you were waiting for it. You should know that shamanic energies in the old souls who are listening and reading are going to find some of these things difficult, even controversial. This is because they go against the spiritual habits experienced in the past, which worked and which were correct and proper for many. So let us begin where we left off.

Dear ones, please acknowledge the idea that when you graduate from one energy level to another, the lessons are learned, and the processes are then changed and advanced to a new level. It would be foolish for you to carry the same old lessons you completed from the past into the future. Yet many of you are trying to do that very same thing right now.

Review from Austin

Number one is a review. We told you that your light quotient, a metaphor for your awareness and your wise consciousness, is at a higher and lighter energy than it ever has been before. This is possible because of the predicted and positive changes we told you were coming [within all the Kryon books], including the realignment of the magnetic grid (2002) and other esoteric grids on the planet. Many very new tools are upon you and new ways of working this puzzle are waiting to be discovered.

Dear ones, if you go into these new energies with an old procedure, you're going to be disappointed. Last week in Austin, we started this premise: You now carry so much light, that you can stop dealing with negativity in the old way. You no longer have to consider what you might call clearing dark energies in the room or around you. This is hard for you to consider, since many of you do this automatically! Let me remind you of what was needed in an older energy. Prior to a meeting or a meditation, you might need to clear the energy of negativity. You would smudge the area, pray over it, and put light into it. If you found a negative person or anything that you thought would interrupt the flow of purity of love, you might even stop and work with that one silently until you got results. You would have your own way of creating the light you needed and clearing the darkness that you knew was there. Now we are saying change this. Why? Can't you feel why? This is the real question. Are you not aware that things are different? Don't continue to use your umbrella when the sun has come out! Understand you have changed the energy of everything around you.

In this newly provided energy, you are carrying so much light that your presence in the room won't allow darkness. Period! This is energy that finally knows who you are! Your presence alone is enough to clear it. Think about it. Your light is so great that it will permeate everything. Don't you feel it? Now, this is new, so you need to hear it in context with the actions of a new-age, esoteric person. Darkness will run from you!

Some of you love to do ceremony, which looks like clearing. Go ahead, but know that it's not necessary to clear, since you are there and your presence alone has done it. So instead, think of it as "patterning". Instead of clearing the negative, put into the room the new pattern of energy that you wish to create. Now, again this is controversial because you might say, “Look at all of those people who might be negative in a place like this. Think of all the meetings in the past that have been held in a place like this. We must clear this past energy which has attached itself to the area.” And we say, “No you don't. Not anymore.” If a master walked into this room, would you stop and clear it? The answer is no. The master clears it! You understand? This is the lineage that is yours and that you worked for. Claim it. Go for it. You don't have to clear it. That is what we said on a Sunday one week ago in Austin [Texas].*

For the Healer - New Energies

Number two: Tonight is going to be for the healer. There are many listening to my voice now and reading later. Healer, what is the process you are used to? If you did clearing before, you don't have to now. Get used to it. Your presence, next to the one on the table or the chair, is enough to chase away all negativity. Now, the one in the chair may have fear, but it doesn't affect you anymore. You don't have to put on esoteric armor of any kind to shield you from your clients. This is new. You carry a countenance that is so grand and so beautiful and pure that nothing is going to get through. Nothing! I just wanted you to know this. Again, did the masters go through clearing ceremonies before performing their miracles? No!

Now, as normal, your clients can indeed create their own negativity, their own unbelief and their own fear. That's not going to change. But how they affect you already has. Now, here is something we have not said before. There is an evolutionary process going on with Human consciousness that literally affects many Human Beings in ways they are not aware of. We have spoken of the innate before.** This is the spiritual smart body, the part of the body you muscle-test to communicate. However, innate is beginning to change.

Listen, if the Human Being, through free choice, has decided not to build a conscious bridge to innate and knows nothing about it, that's his/her own issue. But innate is changing in all Humans regardless, not just Lightworkers. That is to say that spiritual awareness will become a higher vibration instantly, if a person wants it. Humans may go all their lives without ever acknowledging their innate, and this is their free choice. But should they look, or try to build the bridge to innate, the energy will be higher than the time you did it! Again, this is total free choice. But more are being naturally led to question their existence.

Now let me tell you what this means and what to look for. Dear Human healer, you stand or sit in front of your client, and they may be the strongest unbeliever there is, but their innate is still active - even if they don't know it. Your gift as a healer is to facilitate the "energy of self-healing". Even this is starting to change, for you are now posturing them to get in touch with their own innate. This is what helps them to heal themselves. You are going to start seeing certain things almost instantly that you have not seen before. One of them is a natural interest in the esoterics of life, the beginning of the question, "Who am I?"

Now, in order to make this process go even faster, I wish to give you a procedure that many of you are already doing intuitively. I want you to have the person on your table or chair, shut their eyes for a moment and answer one question. Have the person answer out loud. Some of you already know the question. You're going to ask this: “Do you give permission for the healing?” They must answer verbally, and a nod is not good enough. If they answer with pure intent and not just "go with the flow", their innate has permission to talk to you. This is where profound healing is going to start to occur. You will be astonished at how well this works in this new energy, and how your ability as a healer is increased! Dear Human Being, your light will not let negativity occur in your session. Get rid of the idea that you have to protect yourself. Not anymore. Your light is pushing out to such a degree that it won't be necessary. That's for the healers, all of you, for anyone who is doing any healing work at all can have this happen. Remember this question in your sessions.

The New "Listening" Body

Number three: There'll never be a time in Human history that is more profound than this one, when it comes to how the body is listening to what you are saying. There is a process, and always has been, where the cells of the body are on alert to what the boss - you - wants. For years, we have been asking you to talk to your body, talk to your cellular structure. Now we're going to tell you that it's listening, even when you don't realize what you're automatically saying! It's now listening 24-7. So what are you saying to it?

This is now a time where negative dialogue will have more personal influence on you than ever before. Think about what you are saying in life as you move around socially. What is your attitude when you say it, and how often do you say it? Your body is listening. Dear Lightworker, part of your spiritual evolution is that the body, the innate, is now aware of everything. Now, you may say, “Well, that's nice.” It's more than nice; it's profound! If you don't listen to this and understand it, you will keep you aging in the same old way you have. This is why we have spoken of affirmations more than ever before. This is far more than just positive thinking. Every time you open your mouth, you have the potential to give instructions to your body, and it listens to you when you talk to it. Unfortunately, your habits are to tell your body that you are unworthy!

I want you to think about what you're saying. When somebody asks you about your health, about your spirituality, about your intent, or about your aging, do you say the words, “I am working on it. I am trying”? The result is the cells of your body say, "Well, she's working on it - she is trying," but (implied), "She doesn't have it yet." I want you to listen to yourself when you talk. Are you giving "less than" messages to your own body?

Perhaps I've said enough, but almost every single one of you comes from a culture that is proud of demeaning itself in some way. It's an old habit from old ways that are supposed to represent a gracious countenance. Someone wants to give you a gift or celebrate your birthday. How many of you automatically say, "You shouldn't have"? Do you realize that your actions and words are saying, “I don't deserve it" to your own innate? Your actions say, “I am unworthy.” Don't you think your body hears this or sees it? It does. It is time to get out of the unworthy closet, Lightworker! You are alive with God inside! Don't be afraid or ashamed to proclaim, “I am healthy, I am healed, I am youthing, I am in charge of the situation.” Not, “I'm working on it” or, “I'm trying.” That tells your body that it may happen someday, but not today. That's the difference. “I am worthy of happiness. I am worthy of a peaceful situation in my life. I am worthy of a solution in my life.”

When someone wants to give you a gift or celebrate your birthday, automatically say, "Thank you for this wonderful gift!" Your innate will hear, "I am worthy of this gift of appreciation from others." Then love them for it.

The Changing of Meditation and Other Spiritual Attributes

Number four: Meditation. It's changing. First, there will start to appear younger specialists who society doesn't feel are old enough to be shamanic. However, their Akash is, since they are remembering. They are awakening to times when they did this all the time. Therefore, the number of years you have been on Earth in this life will become secondary to the number of lifetimes you have on Earth. You must be able to see and discern this. So the first thing is this: No longer assign eldership attributes to the old. Assign them to the wise.

But the main change is how you see meditation and the "rules" of it. Meditation is going to start departing from the old rules of who, how and how much. Dear ones, with this new amount of light that you carry and with your busy schedules, just being in Spirit every single day is a meditation. It's hard for you to measure this, since it's no longer a linear 3D clock issue. It's a multidimensional communication issue.

Not all of you are supposed to do the same thing with meditation. Is this a shock? The esoteric belief system that you have is not one thing for everyone. It is not generic. It honors the individual's life path. You are becoming specialists in spirituality because your Akash is starting to come alive. How old you are on Earth, where you came from and what you did will guide what you do in this life to a greater degree than ever before. There will be many young people who will come alive with meditation. Watch for this. They will do it for hours, and it may not be your way. You might say that they're carrying the meditative load for you.

This is new on the planet and it's especially new as many of the young people will feel it first. Expect that even they will not agree among themselves on how to do it. It's a new energy for them and their peers. One will do it differently than another. But many will be meditation warriors, with a big M on their chests. [smile] Some of you will see it and you will shake your head and say, “That isn't for me,” and Spirit will be on your shoulder saying, “Thank you for seeing this, old wise person.” It's for them. What we have for you instead is compassionate living, walking day by day in difficult situations, and creating a passionate countenance with compassion with lack of anger. This is practical and represents all the things we've talked about for a very old, advanced soul. The work that you're going to be doing will be different from theirs. They are "beginning old souls" and now we're getting into specialization. Don't be surprised when basic spiritual work is not the same for everyone. Does it make sense that you are vastly different in your life's path? Then honor that premise with no "common doctrine for all". There is no "right and wrong" for meditation. It's what feels correct for your life and your life's work.

Dear ones, some of you are shaking your heads and saying, “Well, does that mean we are not supposed to meditate?” How linear can you get? I want you to be comfortable. I want you to understand this. Human Beings want higher authority to tell them what to do and how to do it. That is starting to change. Can't you feel it? Get out of the mold of looking for validation from a higher authority. The greatest authority is the creative seed in YOU. Your intuition is going to give you the answer to the most demanding questions of life.

Your intuition will tell you how long to meditate, if at all, and what to do when you do it. You don't have to turn to somebody and say, “Is this okay?” or "Is there a book?" Those days are over. Dear ones, yes there will be leaders in the esoteric community, but they are advisors in wisdom and not spiritual dictators. Let them lead with their love and compassion, not with information and rules on how you are supposed to live your life. Let them lead with examples of how empowered you are, and not with rules or what to do or how to do it, or a doctrine that is the same for everyone. Let the "what, why, how much and when" come from the creative source inside you. If you can do this, you'll be right for the attributes in life that are just for you, not the masses. That leads us to number five.

Change - Not That Comfortable

Number Five: In basic numerology, the number five represents change. I want you to acknowledge, be comfortable with, and accept change that is chemical in your body. I want you to honor, acknowledge, and accept change that is psychological in your body. Your Akash is going to start delivering to you some very different and wise information as your vibration starts to increase. You're going to find that who you thought you were may change. Habits, good and bad, may drop away. Good and bad. In the process, the Human Being may go into fear. Isn't that interesting? Why would change in a new energy for old souls cause fear?

Every single time there's a shift in what people are used to, Humans get afraid. So we are asking for a change in perception and a wise rewrite in Human nature. I would like you to start welcoming change in your life and see it in a positive way. No matter what. This will realign you to the energy of a new earth so you can survive and stay alive! This is how important it is.

You're going to get new habits, perceived as good and bad, and they are going to come right out of your increasingly active Akash. Many will worry about it and say, “Now where did that come from?”  You're going to love the good ones and question the others. Now, the good ones may come in ways that drop old, bad habits and cravings, and also greatly affect what you want to eat. A major change in diet may shock and surprise you, and you can lose weight or gain weight as desired. Whatever you've asked for which is most healthy for your body will seem to be "taking over" your cells.

The Akash is starting to align itself with "multiple cultural lifetime events". This term represents how many lifetimes you have been in a culture where you ate or lived a certain way. This becomes the chemistry that your body wants now. How about that? This would be instead of fast food or normal food shopping. How about that? So, how many of you are going to go with it or go into fear with it? What I want you to do is relax and let Spirit start to build the new Human within you. Do you know what we have called this? It's a process nobody expected: Ascension while alive. This is you passing into the next energy while you're alive - a process that took reincarnation before. Are you hearing what I'm saying? In the past you had to die, come back, and realign in order to do what now we are saying you can do while you sit there. That is, if you won't be afraid of it.

You're innate has got to be reprogrammed. We told you this before and now you're doing it through affirmations, positive thoughts and by the actions you are now changing [compassionate action]. Innate is used to an old idea that reincarnation is the engine for enlightenment. You must die and come back in order to take advantage of what you learned, but now you don't. This is new. We gave you a channelling before that spoke about it.**

I want you to think of it this way. How many of you have felt like you have been in trouble for the last couple of years? This varies from life threatening to uncomfortable spiritual changes to feeling different. I want you now to have the fortitude to celebrate the problems! You've just been realigned, dear Human Being. Maybe you've been realigned and you're picking up things from the past that will make you healthier and live longer. What if you spent hundreds of years in a culture and only a few years in this one? Don't you think your cellular structure wants the most comfortable attributes - the old foods more? If you say yes, you're going to see chemical changes in your body to accommodate the new Human. This is a Human who has the Akash starting to be felt. Spiritual evolution has begun.

These are changes that no medicine would be able to accomplish. It has to do with basic health. What's in your blood? Have you had a blood test lately? You're going to find that even that may have changed. Oh, your blood type hasn't changed, but the balance of other attributes did because of what you're eating.

Now here's what I want to tell you about these things that is important. If these things are too large, some of you are feeling them profoundly and you're worried about them. What have I told you about fear? Fear stops light. Do you really want to stop this process of change? It's everything you have lived for, and it's happening because you are alive in these new times.  If you wish to continue, the answer, dear ones, is stop fearing the light that is you. Understand that an energy that you didn't expect is here. That was number five.

The Time Capsules and Planetary Evolution

Number six: Six is a divine number. It refers to the Higher-Self and many other attributes that speak of a spiritual system with appropriateness and compassion. The time capsules of this planet are opening and starting to deliver to you a great amount of fast-tracking energy of spiritual evolution that can't be explained yet. If you ask, "What are they?" The answer is, "Yes." We have spoken of this before as well.***

Dear ones, the wisdom of the ancients told you that you cannot as yet define the master number 44 in numerology and master numbers beyond it. The reason is because you do not have the consciousness yet to understand what they are. You don't know what you don't know. If you can accept this, and can understand that there are things not yet knowable, then you're going to be fine with number six.

The time capsules from the ancient ones who seeded you are opening because you passed the marker of 2012. They pour their multidimensional attributes into the grids of the planet [the Magnetic Grid - Crystalline Grid - Gaia Grid]. They pour new energy of life through fast-track evolution. All this is picked up first by the old soul, and the things that I have covered - one through five - are facilitated by that. They are catalytic energies that you don't know about yet, which will eventually be responsible for evolved thought and increased wisdom. Years from now you will even have names for them in psychology.

These things all have to do with common sense and wisdom. However, more than that, a kind of knowing will start to occur that eventually humanity will accept as "the way of it", and they will call it new Human nature. Compassion will increase and change what the public wants to watch in movies, television and on the Internet. Increased wisdom will slowly show itself. The propensity for maturity and peace on Earth has begun. As described before, the old energy of the planet will fight it to the end, trying to keep the old ways alive. The old ways will lose, and old energy will not reincarnate as old. Slowly, it will be eliminated, just like grade school was eliminated from your personal life as you moved on.

The propensity for health and long life will blossom, and much will be revealed and changed to allow this. Spiritual awareness for the masses will come much later, as common sense of the Human race begins to "connect the dots". I told you this would be difficult, since many of you have seen the future as some kind of spiritual explosion. It won't be. It will be a common sense slow awareness change that will lead to other awareness. This is the way it works.

An energy that goes around the planet will eventually become how you think and will change humanity to a lighter, higher vibrating group of souls. In the process, poverty and disease will diminish, social issues will become more balanced, tolerance will be at a new higher level, and new invention will make survival much easier. None of this will have anything to do with perceived spirituality. Not yet.

So, here will sit the atheist and the agnostic who will know about longer life, peace on Earth and compassion. Yet they won't associate it with anything from the "outside". This is because, for them, it will be intellectual, intuitive and the way it is. They will call it new advanced Human nature, and they won't know where it came from. Not yet. The intellectuals will look back on history and say we had the barbaric age until 2012, when Humans started to become wiser. In 100 years, you'll look back and see a humanity that was far, far different and far more violent. Sociologists will add a new level of growth to their chart, for it will signal a change in thinking that hadn't ever been seen before. It will be seen as the end of Human immaturity and the beginning of a wiser humanity. But for a long time, there will be no consensus on "God inside". Instead, there will be more tolerance between belief systems.

But you and I will know the reason for the changes. The time capsules are opening and they are pouring to you the energy of a catalytic realignment of consciousness. It comes from your seed parents the Pleiadians, who have love for you beyond measure, like a parent would have for a child, but vastly different. The pride they have of you passing the marker, watching you go through the gyrations of dark and light, is familiar. For it's what they did. They have watched how you deal with that which is still dark on your planet, and how much your heart hurts at what you see and the death that is there. They are silent, for free choice is yours alone on how fast to change the planet, and you are working the puzzle, as they did.

The knowingness that all things recycle, and the appropriateness of lessons learned, will give you greater wisdom. All of this is pouring into the grids right now. It's hard to talk about this because you don't know what you don't know. Your seed parents have seen it and they know where it is going, and they're breathless, watching you open the door to what they also experienced.

This is going to take a while, but you opened the door, and as time goes on, you're going to have a revelation of what it's all about. You wonder why I am Kryon, in love with humanity? I just told you, because I've seen it before. So have the others - Orion, Arcturian and other names that you've heard before. They have all been through it; all watching you now; all celebrating your life right now. Some of you will understand and know I'm right, and others will walk out tonight, or get up from their chairs, and have this information barely perceived or not at all. That's free choice and it's honored; it's honored so much, for all of you. There is no judgment from Spirit. If you walk away and you think this was a nice meeting and nothing more, you have the same number of angelic beings walking out the door with you that the healer for centuries does, or that the shaman does. Each Human is created equal. This means that all of you have the same spiritual potential - the realization of Creator inside. That is the message for the day. Oh, Human Being, this is not your father's new age. It's your new age.
