Urgent! Secret Link Between French False Flag Attacks and Ukraine

Thank you Lada! I’m so grateful for your patience in blogging the complexities of this situation. I’ve been astonished by the utter lack of sense so many otherwise intelligent Americans have demonstrated in completely swallowing the propaganda about Ukraine. As this post demonstrates, the situation is not amenable to the usual “sound bite” news treatment. I have been keeping the people of Ukraine in my prayers, especially Donetsk and Donates. No matter how many times these atrocities occur, it never becomes understandable.

Futurist Trendcast

Very worrisome urgent news from #Ukraine and #Donbass, secretly linked to the recent multiple false flags in France!

It has become known that the Kiev junta is planning a new massive offensive on Donetsk and Lugansk around January 15. According to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, Kiev is announcing a new mobilization to recruit anywhere between 50 and 200 thousand additional soldiers. Some of these are foreign mercenaries, including from Poland, US, France, Lithuania and Israel, among others.

Link to Sergey Lavrov’s announcement: Сергей Лавров: Украинские силовики готовят попытку силового решения конфликта в Донбассе. Lavrov said: “We have a very worrying information being presently double-checked, that Ukrainian army is preparing soon a new attempt of resolving the Donbass problem by brute force. This attempt will be a catastrophe. Ukraine isn’t denying that a new mobilization is supposed to draft anywhere between 50 and over 200 thousand new troops. In addition…

Kathleen Wildwood ~ Long Herbal Infusions: Why Drink Nourishing Long Herbal Infusions?

Thank you for sharing this Laura! Even after using herbs for decades I really appreciate this reminder and refresher on long infusions. We are immersed in so very much information that I have noticed quite useful things just get pushed out of awareness by all the incoming new things. For everyone new to herbs this is wonderful because she tells you everything you need to get started using herbal infusions safely.

Laura Bruno's Blog

This is a timely post from the lovely Kathleen Wildwood of The Wildwood Institute. David and I had the pleasure of attending many of her herb walks, classes and two wild edibles dinners hosted by Kathleen when we lived in Madison. I was just thinking about making a nettle infusion when her email came through offering permission to post her new article.

Why Drink Nourishing Long Herbal Infusions? 

By Kathleen R. Wildwood, © 2015

          During the winter, people ask me what they can do to make up for the generous consumption of sweets, beer and other comfort foods and drinks that people use to keep up their spirits in the dark of the year. Though you cannot make up for the impact of these foods on your metabolism, you can drink nourishing long herbal infusions to help replace the nutrients lost, reduce cravings for less healthy beverages…

I’M GETTING A LATE START on today‘s journal due to a power outage — a big storm came through last night and tall fir trees are down across power lines everywhere. I spent the morning figuring out solutions for the big maple tree in my yard that uprooted, fell across the fence and onto my neighbor’s roof.

Thankfully, there was no major damage other than needing to replace a section of fence, my neighbors are easy to work with, and the tree guy is coming tomorrow morning to cut the maple into sections that I’ll eventually burn in my woodstove. And, electricity was restored about 20 minutes ago, so life seems a bit more normal again.

I used to love power outages as a child — always an excuse to do fun things like light candles and cuddle in blankets. As an adult with “things that need to get done,” and ultimate responsibility for fixing things that break, it’s a different story!

Thanks for letting me debrief a bit before diving into this week’s planetary aspects …

SEVERAL SHIFT POINTS occur this week. Neptune and Mars align on Monday, an event that happens about once every two years. When planets align, it’s the beginning of a new cycle related to the meanings of the planets involved.

With this alignment, we have an opportunity to align our actions more fully with our highest ideals. Monday can either be a day filled with inspiration, or a time when we don’t get a lot done, especially since Jupiter opposes Venus on the same day, an aspect that usually increases our desire to do only things that are pleasant and easy.

THE URANUS-SOUTH NODE alignment on Tuesday is the bookend to the Pluto-Node square that occurred last Thursday. I wrote last week that we are being pushed to release issues that tie us to the past and to old patterns of reactivity. This Uranus aspect is the break-free, breakthrough, or break-down portion of that release work, meant to help us with the process of liberating ourselves from self-definitions of the past.

Also on Tuesday, the Sun begins its month-long journey through forward-thinking Aquarius, right before aligning with the Moon for the beginning of the new lunar cycle. Since Aquarius is “ruled” by Uranus, this is a lot of energy for inspiration, liberation, and forward motion all on one day!

BUT, MERCURY begins its first retrograde (backward motion) period of 2015 on Wednesday, so all the usual cautions are in effect until the planet goes direct again on February 11: Use this time primarily for review, rethinking, and realignment, rather than taking concrete action in new directions.

These cautions seem in stark contrast to all the progressive themes we’ve just been talking about, but if we think more fully about the meanings of that Uranus-South Node alignment, it starts to make a bit more sense. If we are working to release old personality constructs that are no longer a match for who we want to be and who we are becoming, this Mercury retrograde phase could be a very productive time for us to get greater clarity on where and who we’ve been, and what needs to be different going forward from here.

THERE’S STILL TIME! I f you missed my recent teleclass on the planetary influences for the first six months of 2015, you can still purchase the audio replay and slideshow — just send me an email at pam with “Teleclass Replay” in the subject line, and I’ll reply with details.

Who needs a guru when you have a power posse?

 Thank you Pam! I don’t like feeling terrible but I love the experience of engaging with people who help me remember that “terrible” is just one not-too-appealing choice in the salad bar of emotion. 

 I’m grateful to have discovered your work and for having some wonderful supportive, positive, friends who embody exactly what you talk about in this post.

Because I mostly live in a bed (for now!) I’ve been unable to get out to groups or meetings but even one positive friend on the phone can snap me out of the gloom spell.

 “It takes a village” doesn’t only apply to children.  It applies to everyone because we aren’t separate little atoms bouncing around in empty space.  We are moving parts in larger systems.  When we help and support the best in one another all the systems we are parts in work better

“Worry is a misuse of the imagination.”—quote by Dan Zadra that I’ve always loved, but had forgotten until I was reminded of it by Cindy from my Sunday posse

I’ve repeated this at least as many times as you’ve heard Uptown Funk** this week. I cherish, adore, love and appreciate the beloved friends who I get together with every week when I’m in town. This is a group of brilliant lights who happen to know they’re brilliant lights, who live and act like brilliant lights. Lots of folks haven’t learned that tiny, but oh-so-vital piece of universal intelligence.

I, for one, woke up this morning doing everything I know not to do and doing none of the things I know to do. I didn’t consciously create my day, I didn’t repeat my Amazingly Awesome affirmation and, heck, I almost didn’t even go to my group. I was slightly mopey, worrying…
