ECLIPSE EXPERIENCES ON 8-11-99
Love is even more majestic when widely shared

Thank you for all your wonderful emails and the information that is quite mind-opening to most people here in Australia who haven't travelled overseas. I forward alot of them and pass on your address.
We had a wonderful evening here on the 11th and I thankyou for your information which was great for supporting the message to be passed around beforehand. For us on the east coast of Australia we had the eclipse at 9.09pm. I had 20 people come for the evening to share in meditation. We started with discussions on the astrological significances to us all in regard to past, present and future, then had our mediation at at 9pm for an hour. We had about 5 astrologers in the group and most were healers. There were many varied experiences with incredible energy that got to a degree of burning and light flashing. BUT, the one thing that came out of the evening was the connection with the group, who as a whole, haven't meditated for some years together. It was time to come back together as a force for the future as we had all gone our own ways in spreading the word. From now on I will be holding monthly meditation evenings, as quite a few of the group are teachers, who usually miss out on group experiences owing to being the teachers! It was an electric evening with everyone being very conscious to the lead up events that were significant to themselves. In Australia there was very little information about World Earth Healing Day or the eclipse so it was nice being able to inform others as the information from both the US and the UK was abundant.
I look forward to your emails. Please keep up the good work. May you be blessed for your input into the planet. We are blessed to have the opportunity to use the internet for our spiritual work and for the ease at which we can move information.
In love and light, J

I would like to share with you my experience on August 11th. First of all, I want to thank you, because through your e mails I found a very interesting forum called Light Connections (joe) and we got in touch with each other, and so at 2 pm central time, we all were there at this forum through the internet at the same time and had a most incredible connection. Before describing this meditation, let me tell you that I was visiting with some friends, and was planning on staying for the whole week, but I woke up with an urge to go back home (two hours away) for the day. Now I know why. I arrived home at 10 am and watered my plants, worked with my quartzes, arranged my altar...and at 1 30 I started meditating on my own. The enrgy was as I had never felt it before, even if it was not either of the two scheduled meditations. I had a lot of visions come to my mind, I had felt this anxiety all day, this emotion, this feeling that something very special was about to happen. Well, it did. During this meditation I started to move my hands, half consciously, half unconsciously, and I tryed to touch my face so I moved my hands towards my face and I never touched it, I felt as if my hands were inside my skin, inside my face. I felt a warmth inside of me and then I felt as if my whole body were transparent and totally flexible, and I felt as if I were in some place else, maybe floating in the Universe.
It was very intense, but then suddenly everythiing stopped and my eyes opened...and so I decided to use the technology and I found the forum and nine people in it. Little by little we started to focus our attention on giving unconditional love to the earth and bringing light to her dark spots, and so on, but when I closed my eyes and tuned in, all i got were these images of people suffering, of animals being killed, of trees being cut...and I started to cry feeling the most intense agony ever felt by me before. I thought something was going wrong because we were supposed to be thinking positive things for the earth, but then I understood (helped by the very wise and beautiful words of the others in the forum) that i was seeing, from the outside, all the damage we are doing, and how much these things hurt the earth. That is why I was crying, because I was feeling her sadness. But then I felt like relieved after the tears and started seeing the ocean, the sky, the sunsets and all the beautiful things we find in her, and I felt gratitude to be alive and I felt as if the Earth was forgiving us. All the time, all nine (or more by then) of us had been perfectly sincronized. I had a CD playing the whole time, and it was amazing how the music fit with the feeling we were all experiencing at the same time. I asked them if they could hear the music, and one sister told us she heard a chorus of angels, and that was precicely the song I was listening to at that very moment. Then When it came time to say goodbye, the song titled Akua Tuta was playing, which means : Take Care. It is a farewell song.
It was amazing. We also visualized ourselves holding hands in a circle and the energy I was feeling was warm, ticklish and VERY strong, Thoughts kept coming to me, sentences with information, things I would have never thought myself, they kept coming all through the day. Then I understood something I had always asked myself: why, if we know that we live in a dream and that reality is so much more subtle and love is the only power, why play the game and find a job and use money and live within this society? I found the answer at last. It is part of a mission we have. A part of us that needs no body (that "transparent part I felt) is out there working in more subtle levels, while we in this earth and in this level of conscience, must do our work here. It is like a connection, and part of that work is playing the game without falling asleep, and being aware of our mission.
Thank you. My life is changing, it has been for the last two years, and I know it will never be like it was before. the door has been opened, and there is no turning back.
I can only feel SO GRATEFUL!!!!
I love you all, thanks for sharing all this with me.
with lots of joy,

Reading your last email you were hoping for personal experiences to share with others with regard to ones understandings during this powerful peiord of transformation. My mate, four year old daughter and I went to the tree line at about 10,000 feet up where our old silver mine rests dormant in South Western Montana.. The panoramic views are breathtaking. As a family and individually we are always in harmony and very creative when with nature. On Tuesday, we did some work clearing old timbers and fallen soil, set up a modest camp and took many walks. Before putting our daughter to sleep we thanked all that is good and used some flower essence from Lady Slipper & Co. then ritualistically burned some sage sending our love to everywhere. Immediately thereafter the air became very still, animals silenced and an inversion warmed the mountains. So warm and with no insects that naked was the only way to be. Night stepped in late and we were blessed with an opening in the clouds to see the magnificence of the stars. My mate being so calm and free of his usual physical pain fell to sleep. I was fully awake. My body downloading toxins that eventually, about 4am, set me physically free. I sat looking out to a slight break in the east clouds.
Knowing my local would not necessarily allow me to see the eclipse. I meditated. Flashes of sheet light with no sound lit up my heart. Out came some pack rats. My whole life in Montana I have investigated and enjoyed old mines, cabins, caves and the like seeing droppings and reminents of pack rats but never have I seen them until this night. We were taught that pack rats were ugly, disease carrying and dirty. As the dawn slipped into the night, the pack rats and I met. Neither of us were afraid. As I watched their meticulous behavior and how cute they were a notion arose that said, "Your perceptions of what is ugly or unworthy will change as the disinfranchised come out of hiding."
The next occurence was the sound of one huge bird, like a crow or raven. I could not locate the bird though I searched intently. When the sun came through the clouds right in front of me was a tiny fat bird. It cocked its head and danced about a rock and current bush. Very entertaining. Then the little bird crowed, LOUD! I could not believe that sound came from such a small bird. I laughed as loud as it crowed and we had a hysterical conversation. The notion came to me, "The voice of the smallest will be heard."
Then a lone coyote howeled nearby. It circled me though I could not see it. Just as I thought it was departing it would howl high pitched sending tingles throughout my body. The notion arose, "Man is a part of nature and is being welcomed back not afraid or controlling but as a vital part of nature."
My thought forms and prayers now seem to occur with no effort at all sorts of moments in all sorts of situations. All are very emotional and touch on my knowings so strong. All my life I have been labelled an idealist...dreamer... too optimistic for my own good. Too, that my stresses in life are due to my unwavering belief that man is divine, of light and always worthy of kindness and love no matter their apparent behaviors. I know now this knowing is absolute truth. Interestingly, in just a few short days those who have viewed my being as Polly Annaish or rose colored now have shifted their understanding to one of mystery or aspiration.
My new website was launched by Nevada Dansie also on the 11th. She was to have fun and had full artistic freedom to create this site. My monitor is usually green or pink so I went to my Mothers late the 11th to see what was created. I cried with joy. We still have corrections and additons to make but I hope you enjoy all that is shared. Some of your emails are featured in the email labrinth. Thank you for all you contribute.
PHILOSOPHERS OF ART & ACTION

I want to share with you that we had two groups of 9 and 7 lightworkers, one for 6:11 and one for 3:20. For the people that came to both, the consensus seems to be that the morning meditation was different than afternoon, for sure. For myself, I found the morning one to be more peaceful. I felt a definite connectedness with the "Stream" of souls that were of like mind. I saw a lot of the purple ray of light and at the end golden light.
For the Afternoon Meditation, it was more "active" and transformational. I saw the world from space as having a crystalline networking of some sort of electrical looking energy grid surrounding it. There was much communication going on as this grid was lighting up and twinkling. Then I saw something which looked like a radar screen with a blip over the area of Rumania being worked on. Someone in the group said that the new symbol for our planet is becoming the sundial instead of the pyramid which is more feminine and not patriarchal and that seems to fit what I was seeing. I also saw rainbows interconnecting, and a lot of healing going on in the group, which was wonderful. On a personal level I experienced being stirred up by the afternoon meditation and have become more aware of things I need to let go of for me to be able to listen to what my higher guides want me to spend my time and energy doing. More clarity came to me on the 12th after a dream filled restless night. All in all it was a powerful healing for those who participated and also peaceful. We have decided to have group meditation on Sundays from 12:00 to 1:00 with others for global healing. Synergy works!
Love to all from J.

Thank you to all of you who participated in World Earth Healing Day on August 11. The numbers participating in this global event were enormous. Some believe the number to be greater than that for Harmonic Convergence in 1987. The energy that we grounded and disseminated was indeed powerful, and will continue to be assimilated by our collective planetary being over the next few months. From an astrological point of view, the effect of solar eclipses lasts for between 6 and 12 months on average. Since this eclipse was in fixed signs and part of a Grand Cross alignment, the eclipse is likely to be longer than shorter in the duration of its effect. Interestingly, May 4, 2000, the date of the next World Earth Healing Day, is only 9 months away, with the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction squaring the August 11 eclipse-point! Keep your eyes on the website for details of World Earth Healing Day 2000.
All those who participated in the August 11 meditations are welcome, if they wish, to post us a brief report of their experiences on the day (if you haven't done so already). This can be done via the website or by e-mail (please include name and location for the linkup). Scanned photographs of your meditations/ceremonies are welcome (please keep the file size below 50KB - use JPGs or GIFs). By sharing our experiences of the day, we not only express our individual commitment to world peace and healing, we also feed back information to ourselves so that we can see how our collective consciousness is awakening, which in turn encourages further awakening. In writing our personal stories we are actually co-writing part of the story of our global awakening!

While I didn't participate in the wee hours of NM Mountain Time, these energies are so loving and expansive that one can feel a shift...not to fear but to peace. Let the dramatists play it out if they wish! It's a great time for centered and loving thoughts and actions.
Blessings and gratitude to you for all your work in the service of this Planet!

As it turned out I observed the Solar Eclipse with Chooi Chin in a group meditation at the Temple of the Universal Spirit (located on a small hill within the grounds of the Pure Life Society in Kuala Lumpur). Chin spoke a little about the Earth Rainbow Network connection and the New Millennium, and I contributed a brief Galactic prayer. Since there were only 13 of us, there wasn't any group buzz - but I felt we successfully anchored the incoming galactic encodings for the next 12 or 13 years. Most of it, in fact, has to do with our own genetic transformation in preparation for full-time use of our light bodies.

What a truly loving remarkable feeling today has...this is how i started my day... I had my frankinscense and Myrrrh simmering , above S's colbalt blue Rieki'ed homemade candle.warming it.....using my fist fitted crystal, and amethyst, citrine and moldavite.. I had on my Reiki cd, What happened first, was I saw this huge Pyramid, and all these egyptian people were walking all around,I went into the pyramid, and i saw this circle of people , all holding hands, and it started with one person, a beautiful pink emanated from his heart, and flowed into the next, and it circled this group of people faster and faster swirlling thru them, until it was a solid film of love,,then it started moving up and out, slowly until this whole planet was filled with a deep delicate pink coating of love....... Then gently these huge hands emcompassing this planet took us up in his arms , i saw the image of our father/creator, gently rocking us back and forth.. back and forth,, filling us with his love, as a newborn babe in the arms of its mom/dad, Then i proceeded to send him all my wishes for everyone i know and love one by one..., gently filling each one with his love, asking him to grant their hearts desires,, and to heal our planet... ...
I wish every day could be 8-11-99.. which if you check it out,,, 8 and 1 is 9, then you have 2 sets of 3 1's then 3 9's.... way to awesome....
Keep Peace with your Soul..... and Strive to be happy......

You had asked for feedback. Our group had a forgiveness ceremony burning whatever needed release. We were aware of the Son(Sun) ship of each of us behind and around each of our dark eclipes. Very healing. Thank you...
Peace, love and joy

Continued thanks for all you do and keep on doing - your commitment is generous for all of us. I have been feeling more resonant with the August 17th alignment and today tuned into that... There will be a need to ground the energy at that time, the energy that has been brought into our dear Mother and all of us visioning and celebrating in unity from the week prior. Those of us who are to do this will know (trust that inner guidance) and will know how to do this or will seek it out as relates to individual guidance and knowledge. Working with thought, energy, prayer, movement, hands on hands in the earth, the grounding can be done at any place (all the earth is sacred) or at a place of higher energy(ley lines) or by soul/thought travel to a favorite designated sacred site. Trust your inner knowing above all else!
Blessings to you

Greetings dear ones,
I find it so interesting that we had countless emails come in from every dimension telling us about the Grand Cross and the Aug 11 opening. And then ---- nothing.
Well, it might be because so much is occuring on very deep inner levels. First, the tremendous blast of Light many of us reported feeling on the 11th, up all night, feeling light and supported by the universe, feeling the old leave, as this new light enters our atmosphere. We have not received this kind of Love before, and we're not quite used to it.
Many reported being unable to sleep that night, along with feeling the new, very light, high joyous energy. Wheww..... !! this is more like it, we all said to each other.....Many of us spent the time during the dawn hours releasing the old world paradigms and bringing in the new.
Now, a few days later, if you're experiencing stuff coming up after the big Light Blast, it's OK. For what is occuring is that mirrors are reflecting, and there is great amplification of our thoughts and feelings. It is a very deep time now. Take time for extra rest and meditation.
If you have not already stated what your new world looks like, do make your intentions known. If you have not already stated what you are done with, old world paradigms, take some time to do that too. Take full advantage of this window from Aug 11 to the 18th.
Various thought forms I'm picking up from the collective .....
1. first, the belief that we were going to ascend, ( honey darling, it doesn't work like that ...) and that everything will be alright forever and ever, and all our dreams come true and they lived happily ever after........... (who knows what's coming?......wouldn't it be nice if the fairy tales turned out to be true after all ! )
2. the belief that this wondrous new energy was how it would stay. (honey darling, it doesn't work like that. the only thing you can count on here on this bi-polar planet of duality, is that whatever it is, it's going to change.)
3. great expectation equals great dissappointment. (expectation is always a trap. and operate like a "set-up" to the ego.)
4. Powerful Light activates it's polar opposite, and visy versy.
5. Light ultimately destroys. (Remember Christ in the temples, blasting the moneychangers? What does Light do to a musty dark cobwebby closet filled with repressed old stuff? It lights it up, and all the hidden shadow aspects come up and out to be seen in the bright light. It's like if your kid came to you all crying and muddy and dirty and misbehaving. You would embrace him, clean him up, and love him. .......OK... first clean him up and THEN embrace him....)
As a collective, we don't know how to "have" full-on high energy on a continuous basis. (example: the Berlin Wall coming down, immediately followed by the Gulf War.) We just can't "have" it.
For some, this can create an atmosphere of cyncism and distrust. We keep getting promised that "it's going to be like this now!" or -- "wait till you feel THIS new energy..." and we get all hyped up only to get let down.
Well..... these new energies ARE real. AND - they are occuring on very big levels, levels that cannot always be seen and measured in the here and now. Remember the Harmonic Convergence, when the press complained that nothing happened. These openings are vast, interdimensional and cosmic, and take time for the energies to sift down and filter through and out and about.. What took place on the 11th is that the Earth, as a being, recieved her initiation into the 5th Dimension. So it's big what's occured.
So be neither attracted nor repulsed. Stay in that neutral witness, simply witnessing. Judge not. It matters not whether you're flying high in joyous energy, or witnessing your stuff. It's all the same. And it is appropriate if shadow issues are up.
That means it's still there, and you want to be done with it. It's about neither preferring the good feelings or resisting the uncomfortable ones.

Astrological Weather Report
Our State of the Heart
From the 13th through the 17th we can become conscious of the parallel reality through which we manifest. The seams are soft like the fontanel of a baby's crown. Allow your mind to continue to dissolve; this is a dream and the mind is the tailor of veils. Let go of identification as the veils and allow consciousness to descend deeper into the body. Our bodies, the planet herself is awakening as never before.
Our new work is at hand. The last tight Grand Cross, again in the early degrees of the fixed signs, occurs in the early morning hours of August 17th. Surrender any beliefs that you own anything; surrender gain and loss; surrender any thoughts that money is freedom. Money is Love; it can't buy you love. The distortions around money originate from our closed Heart. Open, give and receive freely, trust the Flow. At 6:44 pm PDT on the 18th Pluto goes direct followed by Sun/Venus conjunction on the 20th at 4:57 am PDT. The Grand Cross is fading and will finally end any subtle energies when Mars leaves Scorpio at 12:30 pm PDT on September 2nd. This transformation is imbuing all, changing what and how we value.
This newly awakened state of the Heart is sovereign. Do you realize that you can no longer be dominated? Nor be a dominator? Much of our old conditioned reality identification is being bent, challenging us to let go continually. These are the trace lines of old patterning. Old ghosts in the form of thoughts are leaving us in thick waves. Say good-bye.
On August 23rd at 6:51 am the Sun enters Virgo, the Sphinx point. This is a particularly important time to meditate. The anchoring of this Silence is essential in clearing victim patterning. This is the only way that tyranny will be dissolved in this dimension. Victim/tyrant stories have juiced our karmic dramas for too long; they maintain separation. The ascended state is now readily available to us. This is the state of surrender to the Divine, unconditional surrender. Through this, absolute Love is realized.
On the 24th Venus squares Mars at 10:22 am PDT, Mercury squares Saturn at 1:55 pm PDT and Jupiter goes retrograde at 7:37 pm PDT (until December 20th). This is a test run on our Heart, our Silence. Please understand this Silence. We speak Truth that arises through this Silence. It is the only power; it can never be destroyed. Stand in That. Stand for nothing. Stand in That and embrace everything. This is the vanquishing of ignorance.
For the next weeks and off and on until mid-November, a trapezoidal formation establishes in the planets. This is the time for the Core rooting, grounding into the core of Earth. How important this is as the days apparently darken! On August 29th Saturn goes retrograde at 6:25 pm PDT (until 1/11/2000). This is the why in Y2K. Doubt. Doubt who you are, this Eternal Being, and you live as dead to the world. Unmask this doubt. Let go of any belief in certainty. We are change itself. Let it flow through the Heart of Compassion: the Golden Buddha in the Star of David in Leslie's painting.
Now comes a most important portal day. On August 31st Mercury enters Virgo, the Sphinx point, at 8:15 am PDT followed five minutes by the Sun squaring Pluto. So much suffering of the mind may be released at this time. This anchoring of Silence, this transformation of the human imprint is upon us. Open in service to this transformation and you will be well served in the years ahead. The parallel reality from which we source is also available for several days in our awareness.
From here on comes the exercise of our faith. Not religious tenets, though plenty of that will be processing out, but of faith that arises not out of seeking but through Self realization. This infinite freedom, this effulgence of Being, this state without reward or punishment is who we are and our living arises out of That. This is our gift, given and received, our Everlasting Light. Shine o blessed Light, shine. Om Tat Sat Om.

Thank you for the opportunity to write down some of my experiences during the August 11 event. Here in Hawaii, i lead a Sophia Communion, a communion of milk and honey, to celebrate the return of the Mother. These communions are celebrated at the equinoxes and solstices since 1998. The liturgy speaks of the wedding of the Queen of Heaven and the Christos, and the re-membering of the earth and all her beings into the divine family of Light. It was evident to me that a communion needed to be on this date (aug. 10th here), that a portal would open and that our vigil would last from the beginning of the eclipse until its completion(around 2:30 am on aug.11th). We began the communion around 10 o'clock pm and were meditating by 11:06 when the portal opened. What a glorious experience!
Some of the gnosis that came to me was that we were experiencing the wedding, the wedding feast, and the wedding night of the Christos and his Bride, Sophia, the Queen of Heaven,and the conception of something magnificient and glorious. Nine months from then, under the configuration of the Star of Jerusalem, we will be born again. I don't "know " what this means.
During the meditation a number of us experienced a small golden light, like a diamond, conceived inside of us. I haven't had the opportunity to speak with all involved, but so far all have experienced this...and I didn't mention this until they mentioned it first. The first to tell me of his experience was my husband. You'd have to know him to understand the glory of this. He is a very private, practical spiritual man.
Since then, I have been experiencing "waves" of intense energy accompanied by a shift in myself, and if I am working with someone when one occurs, I feel a shift in them as well . My capacities and abilities are increasing. My attatchments are decreasing. I feel ELECTRIC. And I feel an INCREDIBLE amount of Love (as in Substance, as if Love had form and Being, not just an emotion) and Peace and Joy. And this isn't a tenth of it...I can't articulate more. We ARE the ones we've been waiting for!
In Her service,

Am I still here ? Well, despite a magnificent sunrise on the 11th here on Queensland's Gold Coast, sharing a wonderful prayer, song and Paneurithmic dancing with beautiful fellow travellers, followed by 3 hours of spiritual astrology lessons discussing the power of Uranus (how appropriate), the relaxing evening spent with just Suzanne and I in front of the open fire, nothing happened !
And yet, there has been a growing difference in our lives over the past few weeks. Almost a feeling of wellbeing and gentleness rather than a tangible sense of something new. Nothing I see around me expresses anything other than Peace. Is it just possible that we have shifted into another space or dimension?
Even the work (connotation is completely out of context now) of creating our bi monthly Journal which used to take three weeks of solid effort, we have almost completed after just 8 days of perhaps 3 hrs a day and then only working when we feel like it. How did that change occur?
We are finding that if we seriously require something, it appears in hours, sometimes immediately. Why/how? Our personal relationship with each other is deepening and we thought it was already excellent. We haven't balanced the bank statement for months now - there is always enough for what we need. Paying the printer used to be a nightmare, now it just happens without effort.
A month ago we lived in a two bedroom city townhouse, the view over the computer screen was the backyard fence - now we sit in a beautiful home, high above a magnificent lake that streches as far as the distant hills.
Kangaroos graze (on the weeds can you believe) among the rose bed and brilliantly coloured parrots screech through the veranda. How did this all come about?
No. It didn't happen suddenly on the 11th or 13th, this incredible new way of living sort of crept up and expanded into consciousness, or did we just expand?
I do believe that as we change within and expand, our environment mirrors those changes - we look around and what we see is definitely proof that something has happened. Clearly, others in the world are having different experiences. Perhaps the answer is that those 3rd, 5th and higher dimensions that we discuss so blithely are really only perspectives of our own personal earthly experiences in the moment. Perhaps the dimensions all run parallel to one another and you can jump back and forwards at will.
This must be the "change of mind" as talked about in "The Course in Miracles ?" Suzanne and I have somehow changed our minds to allow another perspective and created the shift in our reality.
In which case we now know that we can choose who, where and how we want to be in any moment. A new way of being.
So something did happen after all this week.....we noticed.
PS. One thing is for certain, if dealing with all of these wonderful physical manifestations of our personal "stuff" is getting you down and you need a "pick-me-up" try frequent doses of P'taah's Gratitude Prayer. There is no better food for the Soul and and you're guaranteed to receive instant recovery of well being and love.
Thank you for the love in my life.
Thank you for the love which surrounds me every day of my life.
Thank you for the Love that I am.
Thank you for my perfect body.
Thank you for my health and vitality.
Thank you for the miracle of life that I am.
Thank you for the gift of life I see reflected all about me.
Thank you for the abundance that I am.
Thank you for the abundance which the Goddess earth reflects to me each day.
Thank you for the river of money which flows to me and flows through me.
Thank you for the ease and comfort of my life.
Thank you for the wondrous possibilities and probabilities.
Thank you for the beauty and harmony.
Thank you for the joy.
Thank you for the laughter and the play.
Thank you for the adventure of my life and thank you for the wonderment.
Thank you for the peace and the tranquility.
Thank you for the Peace that I am.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Hi Jean --
I've read about the bands across the sky that intersected with the path of the eclipse on Aug 11 and just wanted to add that when I was meditating with my friends on that morning at Marconi Beach on Cape Cod, I could clearly see gray striations in the sky, moving in a north-south direction. Looking at pictures/maps of the bands that were seen by astronomers in Cornwall, I'm pretty certain they were of the same nature -- the orientation seems to be the same in each case -- north-south.
Has anyone else out there seen them? They were quite dramatic.
August 11 was pretty intense. My partner and I rose at 1:00 and drove out to Cape Cod to meet a friend, and were on the beach by 5:00 or so. Didn't see the sun, since it was so cloudy, but the whole morning, there was an intensity that was very trippy. Did a lot of focusing on Light and tuning in to the earth. But it was so intense, it was a little challenging to hold a consistent thought the entire time. Just nestled back into the arms of the sandy beach and took it all in, while anchoring light. Also, we walked a labyrinth we drew in the sand to specially attune to that place. I'd recommend it for anyone. What really struck me, along with all the other trippy stuff, was how much trash there was in the sand -- everytime you turned a corner, there was another celophane wrapper or cigarette butt. We cleaned as best we could...
The energy has seemed to sort of "dip" a little bit over the past few days (or maybe I just ran out of steam, what with all the excitement ;), but it seems to be picking up again for the Grand Cross tomorrow. I'm spending more time paying attention to specific little everyday things I need to be doing on that day to make the most of the energies -- a day which will find me at work among colleagues, going about business "as usual" (not!), instead of being outside, protected on the beach. There is much to be done!
I wish everyone an excellent and uplifting August 17-18 and beyond!

Dear Kindered Spirits...., During the eclipse which was from 12 am. to 2:00 am in the morning..here in Hawai....I watched it through the Nasa Web site....I have an environmental Harmonizer from the Earth Transition Web site..which very much acts an antennae...with the sacred Omm Cd playing off my computer...for 48 hours continous...during the 10th and 11th days...connecting to all the light workers around the world...the last time I was present at a solar eclipse, in Honolulu, Hawaii, it was not as dramatic as the one I observed ON AUGUST 11.through the Nasa web site....will you give me an insight to what you have experienced there in England...It showed me there was a tremendous surge of solar flares at the right moment behind the shadow of the moon..It was I would say, much much more intense that I have seen it ...here..in Hawaii back in the early 90's.the light flare behind the shadow of the moon was 60 percent IF NOT MORE intense...at the moment of solar energy flare we were protected by the moon..If you have any insight to this please let me know. there is an interesting perspective to this at a web site of the astrological evaluation. I feel it would be interesting for all the lightworkers to focus on the sun, helio chart, instead of the EARTH geomancy astrological chart being in the center of our Universe....WHEN YOU LOOK AT THIS CHART WE SEE THE GRAND TRINES OF THE CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS...IT IS WONDERFUL....THE SUN, AFTER ALL IS THE HEART OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM....CHECK THIS OUT....any input and insight to this memorable day will be appreciated....please pass on.....web page

i wrote this on august 13th: today i woke up after sleeping only 4 hours, the same thing happened yesterday. this sort of thing hasn't happened in a long while, and i can't help but wonder if it's somehow connected to world earth healing day, which was on the 11th. i've been keeping the same sleep schedule and everything, too. but i definately think it affected me, and from what i've heard from others, there were MANY people participating, and i could sense everyone joining in, all of us acting as One.
yesterday i felt this thick density come on, i don't know if it was an energy "rebound" after all of the love energy we collectively radiated out on the 11th... but, i didn't really let it affect me, and after a while thought to directly connect with the GodForce - and *felt* Its awareness, and it was AMAZING feeling God-Awareness shatter the density i'd been feeling... :) it never ceases to amaze me, when i experience that sort of thing - i just zipped right out of it.
my inner critic has been mouthing off a lot lately, whether at myself or others. i've done fairly well in handling it, though sometimes i've almost found myself judging it, but stop myself before i do, and instead love it as a parent would love their unloving child. it can be so nasty, malicious, prejudiced, and immature, it's amazing...
i had a sort of intuitive awakening last night, and directly experienced in a way just how different my personal reality is from that of those around me. it's as if i suddenly felt the contrast the way you would gently rub your finger along the edge of a knife. it's been easy to forget at times how much more limited and confined my thinking and reality was earlier in this life; that surprises me a little, considering how quickly i've expanded in physical linear terms.
in loving Oneness,

Many thanks for your emails. May I please pass on my experience of the eclipse. Stay 6 & fire on the up roll!
God Closing The Curtains to See How Bright Humanity's Light has Become? 11th August 1999, 10:55 am Chelmsford, Essex, England - the start of my experience of the eclipse, although I suppose in a way the experience started earlier than that. For some time I had been loosely planning my eclipse activity I had planned to go sit in a park near where I work and meditate. I had also given some prior thought to the deeper content of the eclipse. Perhaps it symbolised the commonly held illusion of the separation between the pairs of opposites the false belief that we can have one without the other. Yin without yang or vice versa. Peace without conflict.
The darkness on Earth resulting from an eclipse does not mean that light has been eliminated.
I called a planned business meeting short and pedalled off to the park as the eclipse started. Through a cloudy sky the eclipse could be seen without great risk to eyes what better conditions could there be to view an eclipse?
The day before the eclipse I had received a letter of thanks for subscribing to a magazine called The Sunlight Journal - a magazine that had for a while gone off the air but recently come back in response to the call for "action by lightworkers". Enclosed with the letter was a flyer, a world wide call to support a Silent Minute at 11:10 GMT to send a prayer to the Sun:
"Source of my Being, help me to live in Peace, And save my Home, the Planet Earth".
The flyer also reported that the prayer would be mirrored back into the waters of the earth, the memory bank of the earth which will serve to open the hearts of humanity.
I added the prayer to my meditation at the eclipse. This water element followed into the eclipse itself - the eclipse being viewed through water, the clouds. A powerful symbol in this dawning of the Age of Aquarius. At 11:10, I recited the prayer and came into contact with massive energy. Something definitely happened at the eclipse. As the eclipse begin to wane, I physically became aware of two activities. Firstly that a large black bird, a crow maybe, had circled above me in great agitation during the darkened moment of the eclipse. Secondly that, as the eclipse lifted, all the nearby birds let out a dawn chorus until then I had not noticed how quiet the birds had been during the dark and cold peak of the eclipse. By 11:20 the clouds had begun to disperse (their job done) and an afternoon of glorious sunshine rolled out. Note that for most of the two weeks before the eclipse the weather was hot and very sunny (record temperatures) leading to 4 days of cooler very wet weather just prior to the eclipse. Back in the office I was moved to write this note and the following thoughts as they occurred to me.
There will never be peace on Earth, if we see peace as the absence of conflict, until we each and collectively have served our divine purpose. Meanwhile, our very existence will cause conflict. This morning walking to work you say trod on an ant. That ant can no longer act out its life your action conflicted with its action. While we maintain a degree of independence (which presumably we must until we are at one with all there is, all that could be, all that will be and all that never will be until we are perfect until we are not we!) we will "conflict" (act in opposition) to that which we are not (other people, lifeforms, ideas, etc).
Peace without conflict is the ideal perhaps if we all could at the same instance accept the oneness of all then such peace would materialise and maybe our divine purpose would be served. Perhaps that is why we have the gift of meditation and service (maybe those two themselves are too often taken as a pair of opposites?). It is in meditation that we can reach our highest being, oneness. Meditation alone may not bring full oneness unless we enter meditation with understanding. Understanding comes from experience. The quality of experience is dictated by knowledge and will.
Real will and light comes from the inner being the inner being is closest in meditation. The greatest experience is service to that which is higher than the server. The value of experience is greatest when it is undertaken by as much of the one as possible and when it is taken within to the inner being - selfish experience is of limited value.
All this is approached by the novice in a systematic way meditate, plan, serve (right-directed experience), review, meditate and so on. Those that have stepped higher do all of those at the same time the result shines out from them (no longer recognising separation between the opposites). Back to conflict. Let us all meditate and seek to hold the poise of meditation throughout all our thoughts, feelings, words and action. Let us serve to seek to understand our purpose (individually and collectively) through meditation and to act out that purpose in our every thought, word and action to take the experience of that activity as feedback into our ongoing meditation and service. In this way we will take the optimum path, the middle ground, the balance that opens as one the pairs of opposites. The path of minimised, controlled and acceptable conflict. Then They may say, "humanity is love in action".
M.O. in a new light.

Just a note here today, to say that many women have reported unusual swelling and bloating of the stomach area during this time in August. Many of us went up several sizes, and many of us went out and bought new clothes to accomodate the swelling. (items like stretch Levis, tunics, elasticized pants, long vests.....including: wanting to wear dresses, wanting to look more like a goddess, wanting to wear more color instead of black all the time....)
I kept saying to myself, I'm pregnant with the album. When several other girlfriends reported the same phenomena, I surmised that the women in tune with the earth, and connected to Gaia's recent birth, were all giving birth at the same time with her.
Did any other women experience this?
Goddess bless us all...........

This came from a friend on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia...
Felt it needed to be distributed..
L.T. rang from Adelaide. At 8.35 pm, her group experienced exactly the same phenomena ! (i.e. stillness, icy cold, no stars at all, strange winds, people getting very sleepy suddenly. etc. ) Amazing !! Have you heard of any others ???
We had a wonderful time at Cape Schanck. Sunset saw strange cloud formations as if the cloud material was being whipped and shaped by forces other than the wind. two spirals formed turning into the centre which was the setting Sun...eerie and magnificent ! We actually experienced the void completely. The Milky Way was blazing from horizon to Horizon as we began at 9.00. By 9.45 pm, there was not a star left in the sky. No cloud cover. No stars from horizon to horizon. Ink black. Stillness. very cold. We stood at the cliffs, looking into total nothing. The Light beams from the Lighthouse hit a blank wall, and reflected back like a sheet. Strange gusts of wind roared around us suddenly in little staccato bursts through the night. It rained in the wee small hours and cleared by Dawn.. The next afternoon saw the sea and land and light, clear, cleaned, renewed, vibrant, alive and all sparkly and peaceful.
'Shavrill' (Shamballic Emissaries) came through, and trotted around the rocks and pathways with us. They set the Seal for Shamballa across the lowest point of the little peninsular. A Light shone very brightly in a perfect circle on the water, we knew it was not the Sun.
The cloud formations formed like Rishis observing and overseeing. Shamballa is here, just one dimension away now.
Blessing and Blessed indeed !!
Love, H. & Co.
PS Two whales appeared just before Sunset on Thursday, day after the Eclipse.
AND HERE IS ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL LETTER RECEIVED AND A MOST BRILLIANT MILLENNIUM *HUG* IDEA WHICH YOU'LL CERTAINLY WANT TO SHARE WITH OTHERS
Date: Wed, 18 Aug 1999
Subject: A MILLION HUGS FROM THE PHILIPPINES
A Million Hugs from the people of the Philippines!
I hope that you and all that you love are well and in the best of health. Before I continue, please allow me to introduce myself. My name is J.N. L.R. I am twenty-seven years old and I teach Communication Studies at the University of the Philippines in Manila. Some time early this year, I sat down with some students who were then in the process of forming a socio-civic organization.
As we were running through a list of possible projects, the idea of THE MILLENIUM HUG dawned upon us. What if, we thought, we developed a campaign that would encourage people from all walks of life and from all parts of the world to consciously hug as many people as possible as a SYMBOLIC GESTURE OF OUR UNITED VISION FOR HOPE, PEACE AND LOVE IN THE THIRD MILLENIUM?
We sounded off the idea to a number of our close friends and the response has been most overwhelming. Heck, if an obscure computer glitch like the millennium bug (Y2K) can cause global hysteria and force governments to shell out billions of dollars then why not the idea of the Millenium Hug which is absolutely free and painless? We have since referred to this project as [H2K] The Millenium Hug Project: Embrace the Future With Hope, Peace and Love and we are currently laying the groundwork for an extensive multi-media campaign.
I came across your web page through the course of my research for [H2K] and I was deeply moved by your vision of a Millennium Gathering of people from all over the world. Reading your work gave me a profound sense of spiritual communion. Though in front of my computer, at that moment I felt somehow directly connected to you and the rest of humankind who long for a world where peace and understanding reign supreme.
I now write to you to inquire re the status of your projects and the other projects of the Earth Rainbow Network. Also, I would very much like to enlist The Millenium Hug Project under the Earth Rainbow Network. We are prepared to adopt the projects of the network and promote them in the Philippines as well as among our friends and contacts elsewhere in the world. Also, we are currently working on our web site. Would it be possible for us to include yours as one of our links?
I am looking forward to hearing from you. Please let me know if there's anything we can do for you from this end of the world.
Yours in Peace, Hope, and Love,
Date: Tue, 10 Aug 1999
My name is C.T.. I am the founder and executive director of The Institute for Global Healing. The Institute prints a publication called The Feminine Voice. Currently this publication is providing a global vehicle, for the sharing of personal experience, so that we may learn from the richness of our differences, work together to educate and empower humanity, end global violence, hoplessness and despair and heal the earth with our feminine touch. Also in production; The Voice of the Wise Man; The Voice and Wisdom of the Elders; The voice of Our Children; The Voice of our Teens; The Voice of our Planet.
We are here to support you and the healing light you continue to send to us all. Send us your information and mission statement, as well as any information you feel must be shared with the world in order to expedite the process of global healing.
In order to begin healing globally, we must first have a vision; see our planet and it peoples as it was intended to be; clearly see the goal and believe that it can be acheived.
The reason I am contacting you is because we need your help. It is time to manifest the vision! Empower our natural abilities to create miracles!
Would you please answer and present to your network the following two questions and ask that they respond to firstname.lastname@example.org
1. In detail, how do you picture a "perfect world", the world at its best, your greatest desire for ourselves, our children, our global communities, our planet?
2. What action do you feel is needed in order to "begin" global healing?
I thank you for your immediate response and I wish you days overflowing with laughter and magical moments! :)

AND FINALLY, THIS EXTRAORDINARY AND YET SO SIMPLE AND TOUCHING TRUE STORY...
Date: Mon, 16 Aug 1999
A Sandpiper to Bring You Joy
She was six years old when I first met her on the beach near where I live. I drive to this beach, a distance of three or four miles, whenever the world begins to close in on me. She was building a sand castle or something and looked up, her eyes as blue as the sea.
"Hello," she said. I answered with a nod, not really in the mood to bother with a small child. "I'm building," she said.
"I see that. What is it?" I asked, not caring.
"Oh, I don't know, I just like the feel of sand."
That sounds good, I thought, and slipped off my shoes. A sandpiper glided by.
"That's a joy," the child said.
"It's a what?"
"It's a joy. My mama says sandpipers come to bring us joy." The bird went gliding down the beach.
"Good-bye joy," I muttered to myself, "Hello pain," and turned to walk on. I was depressed; my life seemed completely out of balance.
"What's your name?" She wouldn't give up.
"R.," I answered. "I'm R.P.."
"Mine's Wendy... I'm six."
She giggled. "You're funny," she said.
In spite of my gloom I laughed too and walked on. Her musical giggle followed me. "Come again, Mrs. P," she called. "We'll have another happy day."
The days and weeks that followed belonged to others: a group of unruly Boy Scouts, PTA meetings, and an ailing mother. The sun was shining one morning as I took my hands out of the dishwater.
"I need a sandpiper," I said to myself, gathering up my coat. The ever-changing balm of the seashore awaited me.
The breeze was chilly, but I strode along, trying to recapture the serenity I needed. I had forgotten the child and was startled when she appeared.
"Hello, Mrs. P," she said. "Do you want to play?"
"What did you have in mind?" I asked, with a twinge of annoyance.
"I don't know, you say."
"How about charades?" I asked sarcastically.
The tinkling laughter burst forth again. "I don't know what that is."
"Then let's just walk." Looking at her, I noticed the delicate fairness of her face.
"Where do you live?" I asked.
"Over there." She pointed toward a row of summer cottages. Strange, I thought, in winter.
"Where do you go to school?"
"I don't go to school. Mommy says we're on vacation." She chattered little girl talk as we strolled up the beach, but my mind was on other things.
When I left for home, Wendy said it had been a happy day. Feeling surprisingly better, I smiled at her and agreed.
Three weeks later, I rushed to my beach in a state of near panic. I was in no mood to even greet Wendy. I thought I saw her mother on the porch and felt like demanding she keep her child at home.
"Look, if you don't mind," I said crossly when Wendy caught up with me, "I'd rather be alone today." She seems unusually pale and out of breath.
"Why?" she asked.
I turned to her and shouted, "Because my mother died!" and thought, 'my God, why was I saying this to a little child?'
"Oh," she said quietly, "then this is a bad day."
"Yes" I said, "and yesterday and the day before and-oh, go away!"
"Did it hurt? " she inquired.
"Did what hurt?" I was exasperated with her, with myself.
"When she died?" she asked with such an inquisitive and concerned look on her pale face.
"Of course it hurt!!!!" I snapped, misunderstanding, wrapped up in myself. I strode off.
A month or so after that, when I next went to the beach, she wasn't there. Feeling guilty, ashamed and admitting to myself I missed her, I went up to the cottage after my walk and knocked at the door. A drawn looking young woman with honey-colored hair opened the door.
"Hello," I said. "I'm R.P.. I missed your little girl today and wondered where she was."
"Oh yes, Mrs. P., please come in. Wendy talked of you so much.
I'm afraid I allowed her to bother you. If she was a nuisance, please, accept my apologies."
"Not at all-she's a delightful child," I said, suddenly realizing that I meant it. "Where is she?"
"Wendy died last week, Mrs. P. She had leukemia. Maybe she didn't tell you."
Struck dumb, I groped for a chair. My breath caught. "She loved this beach; so when she asked to come, we couldn't say no. She seemed so much better here and had a lot of what she called happy days. But the last few weeks,she declined rapidly..." her voice faltered.
"She left something for you... if only I can find it. Could you wait a moment while I look?"
I nodded stupidly, my mind racing for something, anything, to say to this lovely young woman. She handed me a smeared envelope, with MRS. P printed in bold, childish letters. Inside was a drawing in bright crayon hues-a yellow beach, a blue sea, and a brown bird. Underneath was carefully printed:
A SANDPIPER TO BRING YOU JOY
Tears welled up in my eyes, and a heart that had almost forgotten to love opened wide. I took Wendy's mother in my arms. "I'm so sorry, I'm sorry,I'm so sorry," I muttered over and over, and we wept together.
The precious little picture is framed now and hangs in my study. Six words one for each year of her life - that speak to me of harmony, courage, undemanding love. A gift from a child with sea-blue eyes and hair the color of sand--- who taught me the gift of love.
The above is a true story sent out by R.P.. It serves as a reminder to all of us that we need to take time to enjoy living and life and each other.
Life is so complicated, the hustle and bustle of everyday traumas, can make us lose focus on what is truly important or what is only a monetary setback or crisis. And one more thing, we're not in this life alone.
