Balsamic Moon Phase: heal, release, transform

Moon in Pisces

NEGATIVE IMPRINT: confusion

POSITIVE IMPRINT: crystal clear clarity

Over the last few months we’ve been building our personal and energetic resources, strengthening our grounded connection with the planet, and seeking illumination. I’ve stated that wise owls have work to do. This work officially starts on Sunday, but we will practice today.

Our work is to transform the field of consciousness in line with natural world order. This is a grand aim, but we are talking about nothing less than freeing the human mind, body, and soul to fully express without interference. Every day, negative polarities of the energies are reinforced in a myriad of ways. These are distortions and they are deceptive. They are illusions that trick us into thinking they are reality. They are only part of reality.

With the New Moon in Aries – the natural New Year – I will write what the negative “imprint” of the energy is and also the counter to it, the “positive” imprint. I will keep these brief so that they can be recalled when needed throughout the day. One word or phrase focuses the mind. It is practical and direct. They are listed at the top of the post.

The tendency of the negative imprint today is to create confusion. Things are shrouded in a fog of dissatisfaction, doubt, and a wayward feeling. Over time, actions by forces opposed to humanity’s freedom have pumped symbols, images, and events into the collective with this day’s energy signatures. This is how reality is able to be shaped. We are innately responsive to patterns and cycles. It’s part of our heritage.

The other octave, the “positive imprint” today, is an energetic gift of clarity. We are able to see the big picture when we step back. We have flashes of inspiration that bring things together. We can weave a lot of different things together, like lines that make an image.

Lines of thought coming together is just as much part of the energy as confusion making things separate and diverge. Confusion seems dominant because it the end that has been focused on us. But the jig is up and, with this effort and many others of similar ilk, a counter or antidote will exist.

So today, if and when you clue in that there is confusion or you feel confused, doubtful, foggy, and generally blah, reverse it to crystal clear clarity.

How do you totally reverse your thinking and feeling? Well, it requires the skills of wise owls. It requires going above the situation. We out-think (or out-vibrate) the negative wave that has been reinforced over what seems like eons. No more grinding down on us!

If you can’t make the mental and emotional jump out of confusion and doubt, you can repeat the words anyway: “I am experiencing confusion and doubt. This is an illusion. Crystal clear clarity exists. This is my aim.” Even if you can’t get there, you can still aim. Aiming is what’s important. The universe responds to aims

Overall, this is our stance, as a group of humans, to change the world by bringing sanity to the world. It is a counter to Archontic interference. It is one piece of many needed pieces that will be revealed to us over the next year. Many people have different pieces.

Creative visualization or re-imprinting the energy may not seem like enough to change things. It is because the human mind is THE most powerful thing on the planet.

But there is more – lots more – to help us overcome the situation we are in with parasitic forces trying to make life on earth a living hell and turning people into little monsters who act ugly toward each other, on one end of the spectrum, to killing each other on the other end of the spectrum. We are not each others’ enemies. The Archons are our enemies. They incite us to find unhappiness and fight with each other.

It’s not the US and the EU vs Russia. It’s all of us against the Archons. We cannot forget this. We’ve seen the game before. When we fight each other, we forget our common enemy. Divide and conquer.

Do the people of Russia know about the Archons?

I don’t know the answer to that. I do know that when THE PEOPLE of the US and Europe make contact with THE PEOPLE of Russia, we will defeat the Archons. There is tech in Russia that will essentially create the barrier – the quarantine – to keep the Archons out of our space. By space I mean our energetic, emotional, and physical space – all of it. The tech probably isn’t identified for being able to do that, but it exists. The Russians think differently about physics and all things psi. When word of the Archons reaches as many people in Russia as it has elsewhere, game over. Free energy – the natural energies of the planet – will deliver what’s needed to power the technology.

Free energy (Gaia Sophia) + tech and practices (created by human minds) = the end of the Archontic reign.

There’s a reason the two big taboos for the new world order are free energy technologies and the story of Sophia (and thus the reality of the Archons). Physicists all over the world are being killed off. We know what happened to the Gnostics.

There is every reason to not only be hopeful but ASSURED about the future and our power to change life back to the way life is supposed to be. It could change overnight. In the meantime, brave and wise owls needed.

This is a long explanatory post, but hopefully it serves the aim of clarity.

P.S. I will still be writing daily posts to continue to guide through the energies. If you do not wish to participate in the re-imprinting effort, no worries. Take what works for you.

(Special Note: Group meditation planned for the New Moon in Aries – Sunday, March 30, 2014, 2:44 pm ET / 6:44 pm UT. Details to follow in tomorrow’s post.)

5 Reasons K-Cups Aren’t OK for the Environment. | Care2 Healthy Living

All-in-one coffee and filter things are a quick way to make just one cup.

But these coffee pods—coffee’s convenience craze of the century, otherwise known as “K-Cups”—are also a quick way to wreak havoc on the environment and, quite possibly, our health.

My son, who turns 13 in a couple days, had been begging for one of these machines for Christmas. Yes, he drinks coffee. Only on the weekends.

My husband, a busy man who likes both coffee and convenience, was into the idea. But not me. Whenever the subject came up, which it did quite often, I went on one of my Green Diva rants. The packaging waste! Our society’s “need” for instant gratification! The plastic! The horror! I even offered to brew coffee for them every weekend, despite the fact I’m a green tea drinker. (Side note: During my advertising exec days, I downed a Venti iced skim latte, hold the ice, on a daily basis.)

Guess what my son got for Christmas? You guessed it. A Keurig single-cup coffee brewer from the dark side.

And I had nothing to do with it. I think my son was even more surprised by this gift than I!

Thinking he’d escape the wrath of Lynn, my husband searched and searched online for the coffee pods with the least environmental impact (during which time he could have brewed a year’s worth of coffee the old-fashioned way). I have to give him some credit for the effort—he tracked down an organic coffee that makes compostable coffee pods.

However, only the filter and coffee grounds are compostable. The plastic part on top of the pod gets tossed into the regular garbage. Do you think my son and husband are separating these pods? Nope. That would take time. And I’m pretty sure they don’t even realize that’s what they need to do in order for the pods to be somewhat eco-friendly. (Can you tell this really steams me?)

Of course, if they did take the time to dispose of the coffee pods properly, that would cancel out the convenience factor.

It’s too late for me and my family, but I dug up some un-green facts about coffee pods and K-Cups for the rest of you. I hope you’ll share this to help sway others to brew coffee the old-fashioned way and give the earth a break.

Here are five reasons coffee pods aren’t okay for the environment (or people):

1. In 2013, Green Mountain produced 8.3 billion K-Cups, enough to wrap around the equator 10.5 times. (Source: Mother Jones) This year, Green Mountain signed a 10-year agreement with Coca-Cola (with Coca-Cola owning 10 percent of Green Mountain) to create some type of single cup cold beverage whatever.

No doubt, those K-Cup numbers will increase exponentially as a result—maybe they’ll pile up high enough to reach the moon. It’s worth noting that Coca-Cola was a nominee for Corporate Accountability International’s 2013 Hall of Shame for obstructing national park efforts to go bottled-water- free. Nice work, Coke.

2. Only five percent of its current cups are made out of recyclable plastic. The rest is number 7 plastic, non recyclable in most places. On a side note: What about the leaching from the plastic? There’s hot water going through all those plastic brewing system (true for many traditional coffee-makers). BPA-Free is turning out to be just as bad (sometimes worse) than BPA.

3. Once the machines break down, it‘s mostly plastic. Hello landfills. Plastic never biodegrades—it photodegrades. That means it ends up breaking down into tiny particles of plastic that end up in our waterways and, eventually, the food chain. Might as well sprinkle this on your coffee!

4. If you‘re a Green Dude or Diva and your significant other is not, the coffee pods my create tension in your relationship. Every time I see that machine, I cringe. The la-dee-da organic, somewhat recyclable coffee pods my husband purchased do not make up for the fact that these coffee pods are the epitome of the un-green. There’s a bit of resentment that stirs in my gut every time I hear that contraption warming up.

5. Using K-cups could cause weight gain over time. Think of the calories you could be expending to open a bag of coffee beans and grind them up (to save time, use one of those new-fangled coffee grinders). Put the ground beans and some boiling water into a coffee press (these are made of glass—guaranteed not to leach plastic toxins, which may lead to obesity). Soon, you have some tasty coffee. During that short wait time, you can take a bathroom break or tie your shoes. If you want to save a little time, tie your shoes while taking the bathroom break (men, tying your shoes is not recommended while standing).

If you already have a Keurig at home, here are five ways to reduce the impact on the environment:

1. Purchase a reusable filter. Buy the gold cup version, otherwise it will have plastic parts which may leach toxins into your coffee making it more of a witch’s brew.

2. Don‘t buy any more K-cups until 2020. Keurig Green Mountain has a sustainability target to make all k-cups 100 percent recyclable by then.

3. Purchase one of their K-Cup collection bins, available in 48 states. They’re not cheap. The grounds are turned into compost and the rest is incinerated and converted into energy. But does this really cancel out the production of the pods and the fact you have to pay for the special collection bins and ship them? I’m not a rocket scientist (if you are, I’d love an analysis), but seems like a lot of work in the name of “convenience.”

4. Find a sustainable-ish coffee pod brand. We use San Francisco Bay Organic.

5. In the middle of the night, stage a fake break-in. Disappear the Keurig and a few other valuables, which you can secretly donate.
