This week we will celebrate Thanksgiving Day in the United
States of America
. This is a very special time when we turn our
attention to the myriad things for which we are grateful
We invite Lightworkers all over the world to join us in this holy
endeavor. As we join our hearts together in the empowering embrace of
Gratitude, we will be lifted into frequencies of Light and Harmony that
will assist each of us to fulfill our Divine Plans during this critical
moment on Earth.
A grateful heart is a radiating forcefield of Light that generously
adds to the Light of the world
. When we FEEL Gratitude, we emit
harmoniously-qualified energy that permeates our bodies and blesses all
of the people around us. No matter how difficult our life experiences
may be, everyone can find something for which to be grateful. Expressing
Gratitude for the gifts of the Elemental Kingdom: water, air, sunshine
and the blessings of the earth, raises our vibratory rate and opens our
hearts to the Abundance of God.
Expressing the Divine Quality of Gratitude is actually therapeutic.
It helps us to raise and sustain a higher vibratory action within our
own consciousness. A grateful heart creates a happy mind, a healthy body
and adds to the Light of the world. If we will each take a moment to
listen to our hearts, we will hear the still small voice within. Then we
will know our blessings are truly manifold. Nothing is more empowering
than observing and acknowledging the things in our lives for which we
Taking our blessings for granted delays our forward progress and blocks
our Ascension in the Light. The various gifts of life we receive
daily are essential for our well-being. They are sustained and empowered
by our conscious expressions and feelings of Gratitude. Gratitude for
the small blessings in our daily lives builds a momentum, which will
give us a wider perspective with regard to the innumerable gifts given
for our personal benefit. These gifts constantly bless us from On High.
Prayers of Gratitude just for Being should be a perpetual part of our
daily heart expressions
. By joining together in heartfelt
Gratitude, we will create an aura of Light around this sweet Earth that
will transform her from a shadow planet into Freedomís Holy Star.
Our unified forcefield of Gratitude will empower each of us to
fulfill the missions we have come to Earth to accomplish at this time
It will also empower us with the trust and confidence we need to take
the next step. We are NOW being called to our next level of service.
It seems that everyday we are being flooded with fear-based information
that reflects the dire possibility of potential dangers. It is
very easy to become so overwhelmed with concern that we just wring our
hands and muddle through our days in a state of anxiety and desperation.
The majority of people feel helpless when it comes to changing their
lives or making a significant difference in the world. Everyone
wants things to get better, but most people truly donít believe they can
effectively assist in the process. Well, fortunately, nothing could be
further from the Truth. We are ALL cocreators. We are on Earth
during this unprecedented time for the explicit purpose of uniting with
our Father-Mother God and the Company of Heaven to cocreate the wonders
of Heaven on Earth.
Whether we consciously remember it or not, each and every one of us
has been preparing for a very long time to assist in this mission
We all have unique skills and abilities that no one else on the planet
possesses in exactly the same way we do. We have volunteered to assist
in helping to change the old, obsolete behavior patterns that are
responsible for the pain and suffering Humanity is enduring. This is
being brought to our attention by our God Selves because the time for us
to begin fulfilling our Divine Missions is NOW!
Traumatic experiences cause us to regroup and to reevaluate how we
are living our lives.
It seems we have fallen into the pattern
of using pain as our motivator. As long as we are not in pain, we will
just plod along, day after day, without much thought of changing our
life situations. We halfheartedly go through the motions of doing what
we need to do to survive. We go to our jobs to make money to put food on
the table and a roof over our heads. We take care of our familiesí
physical needs, and with the little bit of time that is left, we try to
take care of ourselves.
When tragedy happens, however, we are forced to put our lives into
We stop for a moment and focus on what really
matters to us.
If we use the tragic events to change our mode of operation and to put
more meaning in our lives, then something good will come out of even the
most horrific of experiences.
The tragic events of September 11, 2001, transformed our lives
. We have a choice as to whether we allow catastrophes
of that nature to catapult us into lives of fear and dread or whether we
use those experiences to motivate us into creating lives of fulfillment
and joy. We have the ability to do both of those things; the path we
choose is up to us.
The only reason we havenít been co-creating lives of joy, happiness,
prosperity, loving relationships, financially and creatively rewarding
jobs, vibrant health, fulfillment, enlightenment and every other
positive experience is because we have forgotten that we can.
Not only can we create the lives we dream of; this is our purpose and
reason for being.
We are Children of God, and we have been
invested with the gift of free will. Our thoughts and feelings are
creative. Whatever we focus our thoughts, words, actions and feelings
on, we bring into physical form. It is time for us to remember this
Divine Truth and for us to consciously choose to create the lives we
want instead of inadvertently manifesting, through our fears, the
experiences we donít want.
It is time for us to reclaim our Divine Birthrights and to fulfill our
. As we take charge of our lives, we
will be effective examples for our loved ones and friends. We will be
positive catalysts, and the results of our efforts will be exponential.
We are all One, and the Universal Law is ďAs I Am lifted up, ALL Life is
lifted up with me.Ē
We can each make a difference
. As we change our lives, we
will change the direction for Humanity and for all life evolving on this
planet. Never underestimate yourself. Experience with open-heart
Gratitude the opportunities that are being presented to you during this
unprecedented time on Earth. Together, we will change the course of
In loving Gratitude, know that this is the moment for which you have
been preparing for aeons of time. The Company of Heaven is
standing in readiness to assist you in your Divine Mission. GO FOR IT!

A very profound message from our Star
Elders that may explain many of the things that are going on with
you. Even more important to stay focused and dedicated to our
mission. Love & Blessings, Suzy Star
"For over 20 years the Star Elders
have shared various visions," writes Aluna Joy Yak'in. "These
visions were based in the past, present day, and our future. Over
the last few weeks another vision came and though it didn't seem to
have any relation to the others, a series of visions lit up like a
string of lights.
In Mexico many years back, I woke up
with the story of why the Maya and other South American
civilizations were conquered so easily. I was told why Columbus,
Montago, Pissaro, Cortez and all the other conquerors were able to
take down entire empires with so few men, horses and weapons. Let's
face it, how many men and horses could they cram on one of those
little ships anyway and not to mention that they were in weakened
states of health when they arrived.
We know what the history books say, but
this is what the Star Elders share about this time and what it means
to us today. "In time and space there are time openings - sort of
time rips, or time viruses. Sometimes Earth passes through one, or a
series of these openings. When we enter into one of these rare
places it is possible for lower dimensions to enter higher ones
without doing the necessary preparation or spiritual work. When this
happens it imposes a lower nature on to a higher dimension. In order
to balance the situation the higher worlds usually fall, and the
lower ones gain more power than they know how to handle. This was
the case of the Conquistadors and the Americas.
"This vision was also a warning to us
at this important time. It was revealed that we will enter a
similar time or space. It is important that we finish our
spiritual work and purge our negative egos (outside egos) so as not
to damage the next dimension with our lower natures. I was shown
that we must enter this next world in a state of surrender and allow
the next world to be our teacher. In other words, park your egos at
the door folks, after all we do not want to become the next Cortez
or Columbus while entering into the next phase of the process."
This explains what I've been teaching
for years about the efforts of the darkside to use the portals or
windows to the Universe that open during the coming ascension
process in order to escape not only into other dimensions, but into
the very Matrix of Creation Itself. This war is not solely Mankind
vs The New World Order, but Creation vs the darkside in every
The shift spoken of in the following
excerpt is the coming ascension process of much of the 3rd dimension
back into the higher states of being into the 5th dimension in
particular. We have come to the place we have all been waiting for.
We are about to embark on the shift of the ages but much work both
individually and planet-wide, still needs to be done. Some of the
new symptoms we and other healers have been seeing during this
lead-up to the shift include: " deep grief and loss of interest in
current goals; " loss of sense of self; " heightened Kundalini
energy (particularly among the female population); " panic attacks;
"heart palpitations; " experiencing dimensional doorways and
doorways to the future either by seeing or hearing them, " weird
dreams and old visions being rekindled " feelings of restlessness
and with a deep need to do SOMETHING - ANYTHING! " unusual visuals
in the inner and outer worlds. " electrical disturbances with
computers and any other electronic device "meeting soul mates after
long and fruitless searches, and ending dis-harmonic relationships
that were out of alignment " feeling like one is going to die, or
wants to give up. an increased number of family and friends passing
away. [Could it be we are dying to the old ways, the old world,
letting go of our attachments to this world so we can move on to the
