A message from Mother

Thank you Aisha!

aisha north

Beloved ones, I have returned to give you another message from the very core of your being, the part that is also a part of me, the feminine divine spark, the one that sits at the very centre of All of creation. For it is time to rejoice dear ones, as what was torn asunder is once more complete, and what was once ripped away has been restored to full glory. For you are no longer divided, WE are no longer divided, and so, this time I come with glad tidings to all from All. For now, we have begot the New in a way that will continue to live up to any and all joy-filled and love-driven expectation there is, and so, we can no longer sit apart as individuals, for we have come together to BE in LOVE. And for this, the gratitude that flows forth is unending…

Solstice Practice

Thank you for sharing this! It’s often hard to feel the love for everyone when the stress and disruption override our comfort zone. But coming back to our grounded centered self makes it easier to see the good through the aggravation.

Down the Forest Path

Around the winter solstice is the time of year when many people get together, families and friends, to celebrate the holidays. If we are fortunate, we have some time off to be together, all together in one place – we may not have such an opportunity until the next solstice season rolls around. It can be a wonderful time of loving hugs, good conversation and deep, belly filled laughs. It can also be a trying time, when the bonds of friendship or family can become tested as we are all thrown together, our usual routines and habits left behind and we are faced with situations that are perhaps out of the norm.

My home is usually very quiet, filled with deep silence and stillness. In that silence I find my personal sanctuary…

SeaWorld’s worst nightmare: Lawmaker proposes ban on orcas in captivity

Thank you for posting this! I’m in awe of the possibility of ending these barbaric cruelty based profit machines. Years ago I almost got ejected from another park ( Busch gardens owned by Sea World, in Tampa Florida) because I saw the dolphins living area. It was a tiny swimming pool. It’s insane to treat other living beings harshly. We really are all one-and the only reason many people can’t understand that is because they have been deadened by the constant cruelty inherent in our culture. They actually cannot feel it when someone else is suffering! That’s like being dead but still walking around!

Never Stop Making the World a Better Place

Thank you for writing this! It’s easy for women’s issues to be left out or forgotten in the discussion over human rights. We still have so far to go but I’m heartened by the many people who have never stopped making our world better. From the grandparents still active in creating positive change to the school children creating their own innovative projects-some as young as 5 or 6 years old!
I’m reminded daily that it very often is darkest before the dawn.


To have peace we also have to have equality for all peoples, nations, religions and cultures. We do need to address the racism which remains here in America and all over the world.  Women’s and girls’ rights are being denied many places across the world. They are an invisible minority. Women are being beaten, terrorized, even executed. Many females are treated with contempt and violence.

We find that the violence against women is perpetuated by fellow citizens. There are laws to protect women but they are not always enforced. Often authorities look the other way. It is a woman after all.

Women are often denied opportunities for education and work. Women wanting a better life can’t protect themselves from violence and harm. They also can’t protect their children.

Leadership, by definition, means being out in front of your people when it is called for. It means standing up for your dignity…

Flying pigsh*t! Drone catches Smithfield pork farms spraying animal waste into air (VIDEO)

Thank you for sharing this! Industrial agriculture is one of the best hidden and ignored horrors of the modern era. If people realized what was done to produce the poisonous mess sold as “food” in America, they would not eat it. Animal factory farms are the worst but all industrial agriculture is destructive to people, the land and water, and our country.

Today We Have the Power to Shift Beliefs and Programs on a Mass Scale | India Benz


It’s December again, and most of the planet is going into deep religious mode. This will cause several things to come into our lives and energy fields. One of them is the cultural tradition of spending time with individuals whom we would normally not spend time with.
A second one is the reestablishment of the giving away of our power to a third party in order to be “connected” to our Higher Self, God, Divine Consciousness, Source Energy, Goddess, Gaia, and/or any other manifestation of our own divinity. In other words, our “disconnection” from our core self is strengthened.
This causes several things to manifest at a social level. We have the highest rates of suicides of any month around the world, for example. Desperation and the sense of “lack” gets amplified. Indulgence and addictions get triggered.
What does this mean to us energetically? Well, it’s like a big heavy, and low vibrational wave going through our own emotional, energetic, mental and physical bodies. It can trigger the savior energy in us, or perhaps also the martyr or even victim energy.
So what can we do?

Well, first of all, we learn how to deal with our sleeping relatives and friends. I have a youtube about this topic which I would highly suggest you watch again here:
Dealing with Sleeping Friends and Family: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdhBv6eALxE
Secondly, set up an alarm in your phone or clock every two hours or so, and when it rings simply observe where and when you are. Ask yourself, “am I here and now?” and see how comfortable you are in the here and now. If there is deep discomfort, then take action to move into a situation or place that feels more resonant to you. Make sure to do this without putting others “wrong” and you “right”. Without judgment of yourself or others, simply shift your place, location, space, and vibration.
For the next few days, I would also suggest you do the Reconnect With Gaia’s New Paradigm exercise once a day. You can find the exercise here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkYQnVFjEyQ
Whenever we shift vibration, especially when we go from a low vibrational situation to consciously shifting to a personal high vibration, we are transforming and morphing the entire human collective “agreement” of what happens during this Holiday Season. The more of us that have the intent and actively and consciously move and shift from the “given” Seasonal programs and media campaigns into an empowered and joyful state of being, the faster we will achieve the reality we want to experience on this planet 😀
Next year I will be concentrating on making myself available to meet you on a personal basis through events around the world, as well as expanding on our mystical and energetic work knowledge base. You can, of course, get in touch with me personally any time at our online WalkWithMeNow.com platform.
Hugs and joylightlove,

Inelia Benz

The Hunger Games-ification of Police and the Community

Dr. Jason Michael Williams, Truthout: American policing began with the slave patrols, and yet, today, as then, the response to the outcries of Blacks on this issue is non-acknowledgement and condemnation – on par with the storyline of The Hunger Games, no?

Labor Law for the 0.01%

John Logan, Truthout: The United States desperately needs labor law reform – but not the “Employee Rights Act” labor law for the 0.01% supported by Rick Berman and Newt Gingrich. Under existing law, unscrupulous corporations and their “union avoidance consultants” effectively choose whether a workplace gets a union.

We Shouldn’t Blindly Worship Authority Figures

The Daily Take Team, The Thom Hartmann Program: There’s a direct line leading from our hero worship of cops, to the arming of local police forces with weapons of war, to the killing of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.

The War to Start All Wars: The 25th Anniversary of the Forgotten Invasion of Panama

Greg Grandin, TomDispatch: It was George H.W. Bush’s invasion of that small, poor country 25 years ago that inaugurated the age of preemptive unilateralism, using “democracy” and “freedom” as both justifications for war and a branding opportunity. The road to Baghdad, in other words, ran through Panama City.

Let Us Speak! Let Us Speak! Let Us Speak! Voices From Ferguson to Sharpton

Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo, Black Agenda Report: Al Sharpton’s assertion that the people from Ferguson would be violent is more consistent with the position of the police than with the people of Ferguson. It is precisely this assumption that Black people are violent that is getting Black folks all over the country killed.
