Thank you for posting this. So good to see the people winning finally!
Thom Hartmann, Truthout/Twelve: Was the near meltdown of our economy at the end of the Bush administration just a prelude to a more crushing collapse? Thom Hartmann says yes! Read an excerpt from his new book The Crash of 2016: The Plot to Destroy America – and What We Can Do to Stop It.
Katherine Sciacchitano, Dollars & Sense: The methodology for Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr’s calculations takes a page from the playbook of conservatives who argue that public-sector defined-benefit pensions across the country are underfunded and should be eliminated, what one union official calls “the pension-busters’ playbook.”
Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo, Truthout: As a high level US Official, Coleman-Adebayo witnessed the dawn of the Nelson Mandela government and US back door complicity with old guard Afrikaner political officials. The author blew the whistle on EPA and won the largest lawsuit in history against the agency.
Eleanor J. Bader, Truthout: Nicholas Powers’ book The Ground Below Zero: 9/11 to Burning Man, New Orleans to Darfur, Haiti to Occupy Wall Street takes the reader on an intense journey through the hot spots of inequity and iniquity in the first decade of this century.
Rebekah Wilce, PR Watch: The Madison Group, the predecessor to the State Policy Network was ”launched by ALEC … and housed in the Chicago-based Heartland Institute,” says a 1991 report.
Bob Massie, WBUR: By voting to break away from a corporate utility and form its own municipal power company, Boulder, Colorado is leading a national shift towards local control and renewable energy.
Nell Abernathy, Next New Deal: Extending unemployment insurance is not a partisan issue. The government providing a helping hand to those who most need it has not, historically, been a partisan issue. This is not about left and right. It is about pragmatic versus extremist.
In today‘s On the News segment: A US District Court judge has set a date for the trial on North Carolina’s new voting laws, and hasn’t yet issued an injunction to block these laws until the case is decided; the House of Representatives voted 332 to 94 to approve the Murray-Ryan budget deal; the state of Connecticut says you have a right to know what’s in your food; and more.
Moshe Z. Marvit, In These Times: Unions dodged a bullet when the Supreme Court took the unusual step of dismissing the strange and possibly disastrous case of Mulhall v. Unite Here Local 355 as “improvidently granted.”
Robin Marty, Care2: It seems as though our last government shutdown is barely in the rearview mirror, yet already another round of budget talks has the federal government once more on the verge. The question is, will the new deal get through the chambers?
The BuzzFlash commentary for Truthout will return soon.

MESSAGE FROM THE ANGELS
My dear friends, we love you so very much.While this might not seem like a holiday topic, today we wish to speak to you about the tendency to compare yourselves to others. You see dear ones, we do see so many of you upon the earth at this time wishing you had what others have, feeling as if you have fallen short of the mark somehow because you can’t buy all the presents you want, you don’t yet enjoy the lifestyle you desire, haven’t yet found the means to live in your dream home, or you don’t know how to meet man/woman of your wildest dreams… and yet others do have these things.When you find yourself coveting what others have, remember dear ones, you can have these things too. You can use the tendency to compare as an indicator that there is something you wish to create. You wish to create more abundance. You wish to create greater love. You want to live in a home that elevates your spirit. You want to sooth the world’s pains, loneliness, and ills. These are all good things! These are authentic desires. But stop there, because a jealous heart or one that compares is a heart that feels lack, unworthiness, despair and a sense of resignation. A heart filled with truth says, “Oh look at that. I am feeling jealousy. I am comparing myself with others. It is time to acknowledge my heart. It is time to create!” Stop asking why others have what you do not, and simply start creating!Thank those who have what you do not. If they have achieved their situations in integrity, in a good way, imagine you are in their shoes. What would it feel like? Celebrate! They are showing you the way. Focus on that feeling every day. In truth you want a feeling. You think it comes from a situation or thing, but in truth you can find that feeling just by imagining you have the situation or thing you want already. Your external reality will mirror your inner one. Fill your inner reality with the life you want now, and then watch it manifest in the external world. Spend time affirming, imagining, basking in bliss in an imaginary reality where you already have what you want. The feelings you seek are there all the time. Give into them, and soon your reality will begin to shift. The universe responds always to love.So when you find yourself saying, “Oh I wish I had what they have,” in a way that is jealous, longing, or in any way not powerful, stop. Like a child asking Santa for a present, say the very same thing in a whole different and powerful way. “Dear God, I am making a wish for what that other person has. I feel a desire in my heart. I know I am worthy of it. Please bring this to me in the right time and the right way.” And then dear ones, like a child waiting for their presents, know this Presence hears you and is going to work in your life, as long as you, like a child, Believe.God Bless You! We love you so very much.

MESSAGE FROM THE ANN
in the past, I have been guilty of comparing myself to others and feeling like I didn’t measure up. I’ll never forget an exercise the angels gave me to help rid me of that tendency. They told me to make little pedestals out of wood, and to make little clay figures of everyone I put on a pedestal – everyone I thought was better, smarter, prettier, more spiritual, etc. I found that I would have had to make thousands of figures so instead I chose a few representative ones. Jesus was one of my favorites. Even the angels had to admit He was more spiritual, I thought to myself. I finally found someone I could compare myself with; someone I felt completely justified putting on a pedestal!So, after I finished my exercise I sat there looking at all these little clay figures sitting on their pedestals, knowing the angels were trying to say, “Look these are all made of clay, the same stuff! You are all made of God’s love, the same stuff! Get it?” I got it intellectually. “But Jesus, you were so much more loving than I could ever be,” I said quietly. Suddenly and without any reason at all, the little white clay figure of Jesus that I had created flew off his pedestal and landed in front of me. It didn’t fall, it flew. I heard the angels laughing. “Stop comparing yourself with Me.” I heard. “We are ALL made of God’s love. We all have a place and a purpose, equally important.” I felt a mighty force of love surge through my being and knew that the comparisons had to stop. As one dear souls said to me years later, the legs of a table are as important as the top!So now I do not compare myself. I am who I am. I am not the most beautiful, nor polished soul on the planet. I stumble over words in classes and sometimes down stairs. I have a nice home and a nice life but not as much as some do, more than others. I know what talents I do have and which I do not. I will have a very happy Christmas but certainly not the one portrayed by Normal Rockwell. And finally, thank you God, finally, I have reached a point in my life where all I am trying to be is me. A rose would go crazy trying to emulate a tulip and vice versa. We are here only to be who we are. So if you, like I once was, are prone to comparing yourself with others, either subtly or overtly… Stop. You are perfect as you are. You are who you are. And that is all you have to be! What a gift that is!Have a beautiful week being sweet beautiful you!
Love you all,

AUDIO UPDATE 11/24/2013https://www.freeconferencing.com/playback.html?cid=conferences/-17-65-67-17-65-67116-17-65-67281390-17-65-6736-17-65-67-52-1022272250.mp3&e=1640926800000&cn=94-43-28-63
Spaceweather reports the eruption of two magnetic filaments on the Sun yesterday. Like love arrows, a pair of coronal mass ejections is quickly en route to us. Yesterday’s Oracle Report remains posted below for easy reference. It should be re-read to grasp the bigger picture.
These love arrows from the Sun contain frequencies, directives, solutions, symbols, and power.
Anytime a magnetic filament on the Sun collapses and erupts, energetic fields of all types are electrified and magnetized. Because we live in an electric universe, we feel these effects immediately, and then more pronounced when the energetic wave of the CMEs reaches our planet. Elevated emotional levels and intense reactions occur. It can make people a bit crazy.
But what happened was a massive collaboration between the Sun (called “Sabaoth” by the Gnostics), Earth (called “Sophia” by the Gnostics) and us! Several things occurred.
First, the collaboration re-imprinted the energy of the Sun at that degree. On this day next year, all of the things we intended into the energy will be stronger. We intended a truer, happier experience of life infused with beauty, amazement, hopes, and dreams. We built a strong foundation for the restoration of childlike wonderment. A very special energetic was put in place/activated with children, but I do not fully understand this yet. Suffice it to say, our magical love arrows re-wrote the day’s energetic code to restore our capacity to believe in magic, hope, and life.
Second, the power of our connection to the spiritual realm increased. Since the Sun is in range of the Galactic Center, the place from which the codes of life coalesce, we align with our spiritual home, which is also Sophia’s home.
Third, the dissemination of messages and information was enhanced. So the volley of frequencies, directives, solutions, symbols, and power was boosted, making them easier to receive and efficiently delivered. Insight gained and action taken yesterday was highly significant and empowered.
You could say all of this was from “on high.” It remains in effect throughout the weekend as the CMEs enter our space, so seize the opportunity. What do you want to empower? What are you saying? What are you hearing? What is feeding back? What are you learning?
(Note: A group meditation will be held on Tuesday, December 17 at 6:00 am EST/ 11:00 am UTC for anyone who wishes to participate. More on this Monday.)
The Oracle Report from Friday, December 13, 2013:
Arrows of love are flying today as the Sun in Sagittarius, the Archer, makes a conjunction with Cupido (Cupid). The Sun is on approach to conjunction with the Galactic Center – home of love.
This energetic volley reminds us that life is supposed to be happy. Of course there are tribulations and trauma (because we are enacting free will), but because we feel separated from our source, we have forgotten what real living is like. Today we have an opportunity to remember. To do this, we need only be receptive to something beautiful entering our lives.
Being awake and in the matrix, we utilize the shamanic technique of being like a wise owl in a tree. We walk around and interact but we are semi-detached from all that is going on around us in the matrix. However, at the same time, we are fully immersed in our connection with the planet. Wise owls do not put their full attention on the insanity of the matrix. We watch it from a different level. Our awareness is high up in a tree while we are firmly rooted in the earth. In this way we are both owl and tree.
When you come from this orientation, the magic of the natural world comes alive and responds to you. Real life begins.
Energetically, we are drawing closer to the spiritual realm. This brings the opportunity for dissemination of important information, frequencies, directives, solutions, symbols, and power. Remember that we are in the “disseminating” time of year – the lunar month that is like a long Disseminating Moon Phase, where we share with others and receive feedback. Well, the Galactic Center is sharing with us and we are receiving feedback.
To get in range or facilitate this, there are several things we can do. 1) We can bring forth the child-like part of ourselves by doing something we loved to do as a child (or wanted to do). Wonderment is a big part of this. 2) We can turn our attention to nature. Amazement opens our hearts and minds. 3) We can shine a light. Hope is the fuel of dreams.
Incidentally, this energetic happens every year and it’s the origin of the ancient stories that have turned into today’s notion of Santa Claus.
There is an element of “solitude” that underpins this energy. It has been exploited over time to be “loneliness.” We are never truly alone, but the pure form of this energy assists us to go deep inside ourselves to connect with the spiritual world. It’s an internal thing. But when minds are controlled toward division and fear, “internal” is “bad” and solitude becomes intolerable. Don’t buy into feeling lonely today. It’s a distraction. Go inside yourself and see the world differently.
The Gibbous Moon phase starts today and tips off the volley of love arrows en route to us. Gibbous phase is the magical phase, so we are all set. Let’s re-imprint this energy. Wonderment, amazement, and hope – can you do it?
Thank you Aisha!
As you have perhaps already ascertained, these incoming waves of energetic flux can be rather bothersome at times. That is, your physical body may have a hard time keeping up with all of these fluctuations, but again, we implore you to remember that they are all in fact doing you a world of good. And we do mean that in every sense of the word. For these waves are pushing you further and further ahead, as the changes they bring within you are preparing you more and more for that upcoming energetic implosion, if we can use such a word. For this will in many ways be likened to an implosion, where the pressure from the outside will create an impressive effect on the inside. And then, you will all start to unfold yourself and go up in bloom. For the seed that was implanted within you from the very…

Thank you Laura and SaLuSa!
Hi everybody! Just a quick reminder from SaLuSa, who came through during my meditation.
He wanted to remind us that Ascension is not a passive process, as some people may be enclinded to believe.
He wished to remind us that Ascension is not up to the ETs or to the Higher levels of consciousness of the Angelic Relams.
It is a process for which we have volunteered to take part in, by incarnating upon the Earth, and by bringing light to the 3 dimensional realms.
The question is, what does it mean for lightworkers to bring the light? and how does one do that?

Thank you for posting this. When people lost sight of this and warriors became tools of corporations to be broken and destroyed, the circle of community and society was broken. It is past time to mend that circle and return to wisdom and respect for all living beings.
Thank you for posting this! Useful info and beautiful dandelions!
