Lesson from Greece: Money Only Has the Power We Project on to It

So last week in European media, there has been a great deal of discussion about the “Greece” Bailout. I’m not sure how much play this news is getting in the U.S., but I think it’s probably not getting as much play as it should. I am also not sure how much attention this theme is getting in “other dimensional” media (among spiritualists and those gearing up for the Ascension).

The Quick and Dirty

I am no economist, nor am I a financial specialist, but I do believe some things don’t require a degree for complete understanding. Here’s the skinny as I have understood it: the European Union (EU) gave Greece a massive loan and Greece missed its first deadline: June 30. Mind you, Greece has been warning her lenders, the EU and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), that payment wouldn’t be forthcoming. The talks leading up to the now-lapsed payment date were basically a standoff, with Greece saying she couldn’t pay and wanted an extension along with new terms and the EU (mainly Germany and France) saying, “fork it over”.

100% of Zero Euro is still Zero

The whole scene is reminiscent, not of big Summit “negotiations”, but rather a kindergarten playground argument. (“Give me back my cupcake!” countered with, “I can’t, I already ate it.”)

If the absurdity of such “negotiations” didn’t strike you last month, surely it’s beginning to show its true face now that the deadline has lapsed. Some parties are willing to discuss an extension (funny, since the extension is already now in play) and others are talking complete relief (no payment) for Greece. The whole gammut.

Could “the People” Save the Day with IndieGogo?

Then, there’s this 29-year-old in England who hatched up an IndieGoGo campaign to raise the 1.6 Bn Euro for Greece and help her make good on her loan. And he’s gotten quite a bit of press on this side of the Atlantic. The short version of his premise is basically, if every resident in the EU donated the equivalent of the price of a Greek Salad (about 7 Euro), we could raise the 1.6 Bn Euro that Greece needs to pay back the loan.

How “Small” are the Little People?

This got me thinking about the 5th Dimension concept of “fair and transparent” wealth distribution along the following points:

It takes the control and manipulation of the inter-governmental banking system out of the hands of elite politicians and puts it directly in the hands of the people.

In my opinion, for too long, “the people” have sat back and allowed the elite to “take care of” the money. But at what cost? While they may consider themselves to be free to work the jobs they want, they are still slaves to their income and the income taxes that come with it (or worse, they are slaves to the “promise of the potential to have their own income”!) — only to learn that for the taxes they have paid, the roads aren’t being paved as smoothly as they could be, the schools are implementing programs to turn children into Pavlovian automatons, and the money is not being managed as it should be, because let’s look at the evidence as demonstrated by Greece:

– Unemployment in Greece last month was as high as ever/always. Those who still have jobs and continue to live there have had to reduce their income by about 70 percent. Many have emigrated to other EU countries, and many more are considering it.
– If there are Greeks who are lucky enough to have some money in the bank, they were punished for their government’s mishandling of its funds. Banks shuttered their doors to their customers and nationwide placed a 60 Euro per day limit on their residents’ withdrawal limit.

Because — let’s consider this carefully — Greece took a loan because it needed funding to presumably pump back into her economy, so that her economy could experience a boost and raise the funds to pay back her loan. And, yet, over all these years, it seems that the benefit to the Greek people has been, well, has their really been a benefit to receiving this loan?

So, My Point Is…
Seeing the IndieGogo campaign had me thinking that this really would be an interesting solution — not so much because it would help Greek politicians save face at the EU negotiating table, but more so because I think it would embolden people — regular people — to better understand their role / our role in the world economy.

Money / Currency has only the power we attribute to it.


Picking the short straw on your life’s calling

A few months ago, I received word in an Akashic reading conducted by FreerSpirit.com that one of my big responsibilities during this lifetime would be in the realm of fair and transparent wealth distribution. This information really resonated with me, while at the same time putting me in a real panic about what all that really meant.

In this 3D illusion-reality, I would not be the ideal candidate for working on this. My résumé is a patchwork of experience in languages and advocacy communications — not banking and finance.

Mind you, in the work I have done, I have been committed to issues and causes that would help lead people to an understanding of the inequities in our current socio-political systems. I would find and prime spokespeople for their on-air appearances and write speeches for fundraisers… those sorts of things. All the while, I would read the newspaper and keep track of what was happening on the internet. I enjoyed my politics and economics like the next guy, but I was (am) a regular Jill — just a spectator of the show that was being played out before me.

Finding myself in the financial center of things…

And then I found out that I was actually supposed to be a player in this show…

But, Banking? Really? Little ol’ me?

Yes, really. In an email conversation with Jen, she asked me casually how this information was settling into me (that this was what my higher self had chosen for me in this lifetime). That was about a month after her initial reading — and, to sum it up in a couple of words: it wasn’t.

Jen joked with a sympathetic tone that she understood that it must feel like pulling the “short straw” and thinking “oh, damn, why couldn’t I have picked clean air and water?” And the funny thing was, while I understood what she meant, I totally realized that I couldn’t have picked clean air and water — that fair and transparent wealth distribution is really the only team I’m supposed to be on. :-)

I had been googling the words “fair and transparent wealth distribution” in my browser’s search field since that first reading. And I was discovering all sorts of interesting things. Names of banks and so-called non-government organizations kept cropping up in the issue of the status quo. These were the very same international “non-government organisations” (NGOs) that my parents had been working for during all my childhood!

These NGOs were telling us that they are doing good things for the developing world — providing loans to nations, so they could build infrastructure for development and grow their economies.

Today, we know that these very NGOs play a larger role in manipulating the power structure of the world’s various economies and politics, so that the cabal can continue to retain their dynastic reign over humanity. (For example, they are the organizations that make side-deals with independent countries to adopt policies that permit other (developed) nations to set up military bases there.)

More importantly, for me, the flame of insight started to burn more brightly. I could finally see the “logic” in choosing my family that led a borderless existence, one that exposed me to (and appreciate) so many cultures and religions that it can be difficult for me to understand how people identify with the concept of “nationality” in the separatist sense.

Okay, so I still don’t know what my next steps are to “fulfilling my destiny” or at least “living up to my purpose” — but I do know that it is up to me to respond to this calling. And I also know that I called it. Knowing this helps. A lot.

So what do I do now?

I find myself asking that question all the time lately. I wish I had a ready answer — but I think not having a ready answer is sort of the point. I am supposed to be asking myself that question. Intuitively, I’m also sensing that when the question does arise, I’m actually “supposed” to BE — and not do.

In these pauses — these moments where I put “doing” on hold and allow myself to “be” — I have found clarity of intelligence, where there is complete understanding without doubt. Only in the peace that comes in this state can I come upon all the knowledge I need to do whatever it is I’m “supposed to be” doing. When I allow myself to find silence in the “I don’t know” I allow the “Do” to be as still as the “Be”.

Therein lies my understanding of what fair and transparent wealth distribution really means: We are wealth. We are the same — we are all priceless and valuable beyond our imaginations — we are all here to save the world and save ourselves, and we all here doing exactly what we chose to do. Yes, my résumé, as strange as it appears, is the straightest (most perfect) line between what my Higher Self set out to do and what my current-reality-self is doing. And I think the same can be said for just about anyone reading this.


All questions are important

Hello, dear Readers,

Today’s blog post is more of a “snack”. I thought I’d post a segment of a longer reading which handled something that is  tricky for me when reading my Akashic Records: knowing the question you wish to pose — or formulating your question. Maybe you have had this challenge too. Feel free to comment, if you have!

With love,

Cyn


The one question I have has to do with the process of formulating questions, actually. Why Do I have a hard time coming up with questions before visiting my Akashic Records?

Cynthia, your difficulty comes not in asking, or in formulating. Actually, you experience a sort of paralysis, due to the high volume of questions that can at any given point be asked. You’re sorting: “How do I sift the important questions from those that are less important?” And to that we say that no question is more or less important than any other. In fact, all questions are important, though sometimes, you may not see it that way.

Today, for instance, and last time I visited my records. I had a hard time coming up with questions. It seems restrictive to do so. I think, “Maybe there’s something you wish to communicate with me right away.”

:-) Cynthia. You wish for a TV segment, as it were, an episode, where [you sit back and] we inform you of the news. There are times when we do this. When we tell you something you urgently need to know or address. But there are other times, when we feel it is best for you to come to us with your wishes for the news you wish to hear.

 


May 2015: Akashic Forecast, Tend to Your Heart’s Garden 2

Dear Readers,

It’s already May! A new month! So, I asked my Akashic Records if we could have a little forecast for May. It seems that the Records were just waiting to share, and in so doing, they also provide a little recipe for getting ready for the Ascension! (Not at all expected on my part, but completely welcome!) As usual, my parts are in bold text.

Near the end of the Akashic forecast, there was a mention that the Non-Physicals are “expanding their connectedness to us”. I didn’t take note of this mention at the time of the reading, but now I am intrigued to learn from you if you are feeling that it seems to be easier to connect with the nonphysical or with your guides. Feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts!

Here’s wishing you light and joy,

Cynthia

Your Heart’s Garden

So, what do we have to share for May? You’ve been sensing things stumbling a little off vibration for the past couple days. That’s because Mercury is indeed about to retrograde. Hold on to your words, because this time they are going to go a-flying and well, this means, they will be particularly rambunctious.

Ride the Wave of Words

Usually Mercury retrograde means that communications can appear to fall out of synch with their step-by-step pattern because there are gaps of understanding or gaps in receivership – much like a satellite television on a rainy day. But this month is more like “communications out of whack” because there’s a plethora of words, ideas and communications and that’s just too overwhelming for just about anyone to manage. Don’t try to nail anything down now or during this time, because the dust is still being stirred up. You wish to see things settle, so agreements can be met (but you’ll just have to wait a hot minute). [More laughter.]

With all these words all over the place, there is also a sense of excitement. Ride the wave. It is a time to enjoy the multitude of messaging that is traveling through cyberspace. Pull out as many stars from the internet as you can find and design your constellation of message from this. But don’t get married to any one combo. This is a time to enjoy being experimental. You’ll also ride this wave through most of June, so have fun with it.

We want you to feel light and beauty

Beauty is also something that will feature prominently this month. Remember how we asked you to invest in something small of beauty for great rewards last month? Well, this month, we ask that you take the time to watch it grow. This is a bit of a creative exercise we ask that you do. We are wishing that more and more people practice these little games that aren’t quite meditation but aren’t quite weighted with the sludge of “reality” that you are walking around with.

We want you to feel light and beauty.

So, this month, spend time looking at these small things of beauty that you invested in. (Remember, we asked that it need not be something you actually purchase. When we say invest, we mean put a small sense of yourself into these things of beauty.) We are now going to help these small things grow in our hearts and minds.

In your case, you found a little necklace in your jewelry box that you hadn’t worn in years. You began to wear it almost every day in April. And you were able to notice its beauty during different parts of the day. You put aside 10 seconds here, and five seconds there, in admiration of this small thing.

Plant the Seeds of Beauty in Your Heart Every Day

Garden by the Lake

Now, we’re asking you to take that small thing of beauty and plant it into your heart every day. And from there we ask that you watch it grow. Please do not get lost in the details of this exercise. If the thing of beauty you invested in last month was a bird house that you can see from your bedroom window then plant that in your heart.

The idea is to spend one minute to five minutes a day. Just planting this object of beauty in your hearts and tending to this garden. Again, it doesn’t matter what it is. It can also be your child’s good night kiss or good morning kiss. It can be anything – as long as it fits your idea of beauty.

Meanwhile… Outside of the Garden

We also would like to share with you that there will be more activity on the world political front. More activity—a certain friskiness (for use of a light word). Your attention to whatever is happening is necessary, but not with the sense of focus that you might think.

Your focus needs to stay within the beauty of your heart. When news of an atrocity strikes in your core, or strums your chords, don’t stay there. Move that energy to the seeds in your heart. Convert that energy through the garden in your heart. There is an ability to everyone to tend to their garden in their heart, even while fear is whizzing around.

For many of you, the trauma may come in other forms. The disasters may strike in other ways. Do what you need to do to get by, but return to tending your garden more frequently in these days. We are asking you to exercise your sense of compassion during this time.

There are different battles going on and raging around the world in different ways, but it is important to remember that this is a reflection or a projection of the war that is raging in our collective consciousness and in our individual consciousnesses. The prisoners of our mind, of our thinking, are rebelling—because we need to be completely free. Complete freedom is our ultimate purpose.

Tend to the garden in your heart when a sense of loss comes in, find that weed that randomly seemed to shoot through the middle of a cement road. The flowering weed that broke through the walls of your prison cell and tend to it. Enough doom and gloom…

Venus Shines on You and Your Thriving Gardens

While your hearts’ gardens are thriving, focus on other aspects of beauty too. You will find a certain allure beginning to shine through your skin. People will begin complementing you on your new T-shirt or new glasses—not because they are new, but because the person who’s wearing it will be perceived with newness and freshness that they hadn’t heretofore shone with.

Y’all have Venus shining down on you big time. :-)

Of course, with all this glowing, you’ll be attracting other shiny happy people. Continue to tend your garden. Some of these shiny happy people will be attracted to you to recharge their own batteries, while others are there to co-charge (as in, you both charge each other and take each other to new heights. We think it’s pretty obvious who should merit your attentions.) Just keep tending your garden.

But in all seriousness, we are getting you lined up for something coming up in the relatively near future. We wish we could share a time with you more specifically, but it’s just not certain. July-ish? August-ish? Tending your gardens and developing your sprouts is so important for what’s to come. For each of you the various battles will look different, though they will affect all of humanity much the same.

Still, Joy and Light are the catch words for May. Stay in joy and light. And tend your gardens. On our side of your sense of physicality, we are expanding our connectedness to you at an increasing rate.* This is exciting for us and for this Ascension, but it is only one step. Steps are steps, and we still have many to take. Looking forward to June!!!

Thank you, Persephone – and others. Thank you.

You are welcome, Cynthia and readers. We are here with you!

 

* Editor’s note: In rereading this “Reading” after the fact, it is unclear to me what was meant exactly by the words “expanding our connectedness to you”. The editor believes that it could mean that the guides are connecting directly with those of us in this time-space dimension at an increasing rate. I would be happy to hear from you if you are finding that it is easier to get in contact with your guides or to read your own Akashic Records.

Beautiful surprises… Venus shines!

This is a beautiful time of year in Switzerland. We have been particularly lucky this year, because the weather has really brought about some welcome sunshine! Because of this, I have also been able to enjoy many walks with my loved one, during which we sometimes walk in silence and other times in animated conversation about Energy, Law of Attraction and Collective Consciousness.

A couple days ago, I did a quick little Akashic Record exercise. I do this just to keep the lines of communication open, or my muscles stretched and flexible. I also do it to massage my time calendar which has a magnetic ability to fill up with all sorts of busy-ness.

I didn’t have much time, but I figured 15 to 30 minutes is better than nothing, and stepped right into conversation — despite not having any specific questions, and contrary to what I promised myself I wouldn’t do for future readings. It seemed that I may have been beckoned to do the reading, because the “vibration” of a presence was almost immediate.

The communication was brief, “urgent” and clear, but still patient and loving. (I won’t get into the details of the conversation now, because I haven’t yet fully processed all the information in my mind as yet, but I will share this.) It ended with them saying: “We have really enjoyed coming to you today. As a token, we will leave you with a surprise. You will know it’s us, when you see it.”

Of course, that day, I was looking for “signs” and there were many noteworthy signs of beauty and coincidence, and I would ask myself, “Could that be it?” to which I’d have to remind myself that they clearly said I would know it’s them when I see it.

Blimey! It took three days, but when I did see it, I did know. Here goes…

IMG_0995

It’s the star directly atop the restaurant across the street. I have noticed this for several months now (on clear, cloudless nights). I’m not sure how long it’s been there, but it seems to change position in the night sky a little from one night to another. At first, I thought it could be Venus, but it always seemed a bit too bright — I had never seen Venus so bright before. (But I’m also not really a star-gazer in that sense, so I wasn’t even sure if I was misnaming that star.) Another time when I saw it a bit more than a month ago, it seemed almost like two lights so close to each other they could be one.

Well, about a week ago, I asked a connection who’s connected (or simply bright) what she thought. She managed to line up what I was seeing with Google Sky and see that it was Venus, lined up right in front of Alcyone (of the Pleiadian star system!). And to echo her words: “How cool is that?” indeed!!

I shot the picture just last night from my little balcony in Switzerland, and it is completely untouched.

Like I said, when I saw it, I just knew this was the “surprise” referred to three days ago in my reading. Noting that we are on the cusp of the astrological sign Taurus, it seems fitting to give Venus her props along with her lover, Mars. It also feels right to remember the call for recognizing small things of beauty this month for great rewards.

Have you seen the super bright Venus star I’m referring to in this picture? Leave a comment, I would love to hear from you!
