A Meditation for the Methane Leak in L.A.

29 12 2015

by Mae McCaw

A greenhouse gas that’s 25x more efficient at trapping heat in the atmosphere than CO2 makes methane one of the largest contributors to global warming. Much of the methane comes from the bottom of the ocean or in methane hydrates (trapped in ice released when icebergs melt). If a million tons of methane gas – a new distribution of energy – is released into the atmosphere, the consequences are globally catastrophic (chain reaction known as a runaway greenhouse effect that’s self propagating). The warmer and warmer and warmer it gets, the more it generates SUPER storms or monster weather with higher magnitude, higher rating, stronger winds, producing stronger storm surges, producing heavier rains, and strange weather patterns (massive hail storms, flooding, etc.). Though, I wonder if this could also be a blessing in disguise for the CA drought?

Just like the nano particles, impossible storms, volatile tectonic plates, ELENIN, impending super volcanic eruptions, we seriously do have the collective power (in numbers) with our hearts and minds to fix these things by simply envisioning the opposite of its destructive effects. Just as we can reprogram the nano particles, we can recreate a different reaction and timeline for these events. We don’t have to buy into the depression, the devastation, etc. Remember, in the end, it’s just a hologram. Our emotional reaction powers the physical manifestation of what follows. Let’s keep our emotions in check and power the thoughts with Love that rebuild a New Earth, a beautiful one for all her species.

FOR MEDITATORS WORLDWIDE:

coniferous-trees-meditation

It’s time we address the massive environmental disaster–150 million pounds+ of methane (and growing daily) leaked into the atmosphere from Los Angeles, CA. Meditation is one of our most effective super powers so in your next meditation session today (more power in numbers), envision a few things with your minds, powered by your hearts–

FIRST…connect your crown chakra with Source. Bring in the White Light from Source down to your crown chakra through all your chakras cleansing and activating them through your root chakra down to the core of Mother Earth. FEEL this powerful connection with your HEART out of PURE LOVE for the Earth and all her species:

1. Methane is a natural gas from the ground so envision the leak source effectively sealed.
2. Envision the methane that’s already leaked into the atmosphere as benign to humans, animals and the environment.
3. For those bodies that have already been affected however, envision the probiotic microbes and anti-oxidants in the body defeating/eliminating all rogue and/or carcinogenic cells completely.
4. Envision the greenhouse gas effect of methane in the atmosphere being absorbed by living Christmas trees. (Evergreen spruce, pines, and firs are proven the most effective at cleaning methane in the air.) Activate the coniferous forest located right up in Idyllwild, CA. Activate all the evergreen trees in Los Angeles and surrounding cities and regions to work double/triple time cleaning up the methane.
5. Activate ALL coniferous forests (evergreens) THROUGHOUT the world to assist in this miraculous job of absorbing the methane and all greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, leaving the planet with only fresh, clean air.
6. As you meditate be sure you also replenish the evergreen trees/ coniferous forests with Source energy.
7. Repeat and/or add anything else to this meditation.
8. Bless the Earth.
9. Give thanks to Source.
10. Close your practice (with several deep breaths in a series of OMs).
Thank you. Feel free to Share. It’s more effective in numbers.

2011 Planetary Changes Reported by The Spiritual Hierarchy and the Galactic Federation (of Light) – 11.Jan.11

13 01 2011

Galactic Federation Update (Channeled) by Sheldan Nidle

We return to report on what is happening on and to your world. Until now, we have confined ourselves to broad brushstrokes in describing what is going on in your world and the solar system. Now it is appropriate to provide more details on some matters. As you know, Gaia is embarked on a massive series of changes that is to change drastically the reality you reside in. Recently, we informed you that she is in the process of locking in her major tectonic plates, and this is associated with the changes in the geomagnetic and electrical fields of your planet’s surface. The changes in these fields are starting to intensify. The many large earthquakes over the past six years are speeding up Gaia’s axis change and causing havoc with the internal magnetic compass possessed by all life on the planet. This accounts for the vast numbers of animal deaths recorded recently, and this death toll is further boosted by the effects of sudden climate change in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. But these changes have another factor that needs to be considered.

The dark cabal has made it a point to express its displeasure with the uncontrollable natural modifications of Gaia by perpetrating a direct and unrelenting assault upon her. The massive oil spill that started suddenly last April in the Gulf of Mexico is a prime example of this sorry strategy. Many corporations and governments on your world are in cahoots on a grand scale to cripple the process of transformation that Gaia has been slowly engaging upon for the past half century, and the Gulf oil spill is one of the more dramatic examples of this in the past decade. A major goal of this stratagem is to cripple the Gulf Stream and mess up the North Atlantic Conveyer. This puts the entire Northern Hemisphere into a pattern of very cold winters and cooler springs, summers, and autumns. This has a knock-on effect in the Southern Hemisphere by changing the jet streams. This affects the monsoons, creating large floods during the Southern Hemisphere’s summer, and this will happen next summer in the Northern Hemisphere. The way to reverse all this is to restore the Gulf Stream.

Encircling your planet is an ocean current that your scientists call the Great Conveyer. It is this rhythmic flow of Earth energy that all life here is attuned to. We have seen how diligent your dark cabal is in finding ways to seriously disrupt this prime energy flow, and in part they have temporarily succeeded. Mother Earth is now working to restore this prime conveyer, and her work is reducing the amount of destruction possible, especially considering the amount of ruin that has already taken place around your globe. Our brief is to act in accordance with what Heaven tells us. Your world is reaching a point where the failsafe mechanisms (such as they are) built into your societies can no longer hold, and in light of this, Heaven has described to us a scenario in which a series of direct interventions can safely take place. These projected intercept points are fast approaching. We are monitoring these (ultimately) man-made disasters and deeply wish to intervene on a massive scale. This will happen in the very near future, as events are underway that will make this most possible!

Not only your climate but your economy also is in serious difficulties. Your dark cabal and its media and governmental minions are deliberately turning a blind eye to the illegal activities that have brought your world to the brink of a colossal ruin. These conditions have now been pushed to their limits. A massive backlash is mounting, but this can actually expedite what we intend to do. Heaven has instructed us on these matters and we need to follow these sacred directions to the letter. Look to the amazing amount of anomalous activity happening on your world and in your solar system and realize that these are clues that, taken together, clearly point to the proximity of what we tell you. Your reality is in a very fragile state. Tipping points are inexorably converging throughout your realm, which indicates that a major shift is starting. Our part is to arrive at a specific point and swiftly complete the momentum currently underway. This intervention is a divine one and will resolve and wrap things up more quickly.

Your world hovers on the edge of incredible change. We are pledged to intervene. Our many liaison teams are focused on getting the preliminary changes done swiftly. We are determined to do this. One minor obstacle is the continuing belief of many on your world in an invasion by an off-planet organization. This concept is being played up constantly by your entertainment industries, and we have therefore taken measures to ensure that what we do is not misinterpreted by your society. We came here, knowing full well that your limited-conscious society has been thoroughly manipulated, first by the Anunnaki and then by their earth minions. The use of carefully placed misinformation stories is a prime trick of the corporate American government. We intend to proceed in a way that makes us, first, welcome, and then perceived by you to be family.

The purpose behind what is now happening is to affect a major shift in your consciousness and in your reality. Much needs to be explained. Your recorded history is chock full of lies, unexplained events, and apparent ‘mysteries.’ We need to clarify what really happened to you and show you a true chronicle of your origins. This will cast light on why we are here and why you are being returned to full consciousness. Then you will be able to understand that this mission goes way beyond merely restoring you to de jure government, and you will see that your new abundance is a mere preamble to the creation of your new galactic society. A more expansive, friendlier approach to the universe is then possible, and you can begin to better comprehend our mission here and why we are working toward a full-fledged first contact with you.

We know that, each day, many of you wonder about the exact timing of this divine intervention. Let us look at this: your world is close to major collapse. One telltale symptom of a society on the verge of a big consciousness leap is the flurry of conflicting notions about what is actually happening. This confusion can be further abetted by the ruling cabal, which usually deliberately fuels the chaos as a way to prolong its time in power. Anyone looking objectively at your global conditions can see that great change is ready to happen. Usually, things smolder on for another decade or so, and then a bloody revolution erupts. In your case, the particular circumstances of your situation preclude the luxury of a distant rebellion. The Divine has stated that a bloodless revolution is required, now. This is what our Earth allies and we are about to produce. It is to be at once a truly shocking and a truly marvelous happening!

Try to resist the temptation of frustration, and see these last days as the lull before a full-blown, unprecedented series of phenomena erupts onto the world stage, changing everything! Our personnel are working all out to shove these sensational events into being. We have to ensure that the surprise factor is also a positive experience, as uplifting events are desperately needed here! We are producing the ‘magic’ to manifest this, and indeed, many opponents of this cause are daily being converted. It is close and ready to burst forth. All aspects of your reality construct are straining at the seams; look at the growing anomalous changes in your solar system and in your Sun; look at the indices of change in your global societies. Magic is getting ready to pop!

Today, we delved deeper into what is happening to transform your world. Be advised that the changes to your dear planet, Gaia, and to your reality are truly immense! The mounting chaos and confusion have stirred up a great apprehension in you, but know that this is surely to be morphed into a great joy! The time for this great joy to become your eternal now has come! Know, dear Ones, that the countless Supply and never-ending Prosperity of Heaven are indeed Yours! So Be It! Selamat Gajun! Selamat Ja! (Sirian – Sirius B – for Be One! and Be in Joy!)

The Age of Stupid (Film Trailer)

7 11 2010
The Age Of Stupid — Movie Review

By Diana de Regnier | February 7th 2010 04:36 PM

“The Age of Stupid,” a 2009 docudrama set in 2055, asks why didn’t we save Earth when we had the chance. “Stupid” was first conceived by Director Franny Armstrong as a documentary integrating themes of excessive consumption, war and climate change. Armstrong began developing the idea in 2002 and began shooting in 2004.

Armstrong and Producer Lizzie Gillett sought out the main characters from seven countries: India airline founder Jeh Wadia; French mountain guide Fernand Pareau; New Orleans Shell Oil Company paleontologist Alvin Duvernay; English wind farm developer Piers Guy, Nigerian Layefa Malemi who wants to be a famous doctor; and Iraqi refugee children Jamila and Adnan Bayyoud who repair American’s discarded shoes to sell on the streets of Jordan.

Music by Chris Brierley, “McLibel” and “Drowned Out,” enhances without intruding with a full orchestral score and songs by Radiohead, Depeche Mode and Clapton.

Animation weaves scenes and stories together and portrays those who would never agree to an interview that asks what is your responsibility to the indigenous people of this region?

In 2008, a showing of the thought-to-be-finished movie to friends, family and investors made it clear that despite compelling stories the film desperately needed a twist. The perfect answer arose by adding the archivist, set in the year 2055, as the last man on earth, “to amplify and explain the significance of our six human stories set in the present day,” Armstrong explains.

Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite was Armstrong’s only choice for the heir to a devastated world. A self-described convert “from environmental ignoramus to climate change party bore,” Postlethwaite says, “No option really. I had to do it.”

As Earth’s last survivor, Postlethwaite taps screens in mid-air to view news footage from 2008. “Why didn’t we stop climate change when we had the chance?” … “What state of mind were we in to face extinction and simply shrug it off?”

The most haunting stars of “Stupid” are the Iraqi children. Unscripted, Jamila and Adnan run through the alleys of Jordan reenacting scenes they witnessed in their home country. Jamila chases her brother wielding a pretend machine gun. Adnan returns fire, but then drops to the ground in defeat. Jamila grabs a throw and covers the fallen soldier’s body and face with the reverence of one administering last rites.

It is a scene I will never forget.

The children were five and six-years-old when their home was destroyed by a missile on the second day of the Iraq war. Their older brother Malik was badly burned as they fled the house. Their father died.

“Our dad was the best one in all Iraq,” says Adnan. “But the Americans came and killed him. We found him dead in the morning.”

“I never want to see Americans again. I have fire in my heart because they killed our dad.”

Since that fateful night, fifteen-year-old Malik has been detained in Baghdad. On his ninth attempt to join his family, he manages to get the medical certificate he needs to cross into Jordan. Jamila and Adnan take a taxi to the border, hoping to reunite with their brother.

The trip was expected to take two hours. Six hours later Malik explains that his ride got stuck behind an American tank convoy – if you overtake a tank, they shoot you.

“During those extra four hours, when I concluded that someone [could have] died because of my film, I did a lot of reevaluating.” Says Armstrong.

Layefa Malemi, from Shell Oil’s most profitable region of Nigeria, wades in breast-deep oil-laden water for fish to sell in hopes of earning enough money to attend medical school. Malemi longs for the American fantasies: a comfortable house, flashy cars, good drinking water, plentiful good food. “If you were living that life you wouldn’t even like to die. You’d just want to stay on Earth forever.”

“Through being a medical doctor, I really want to be famous. It’s not easy, it’s hard work. But that’s my dream.” Malemi adds.

When did becoming famous become an ambition rather than a side effect? Are we so desperate for appreciation only enthralling crowds will satiate our lust?

Piers Guy sees wind turbines as “foot soldiers, the pioneers” of a more intelligent energy system. His intention to erect the modern-day windmills on his Bedford farm met with life-threatening contentiousness from neighbors who say the sleek towers spoil their view and make too much noise. They fail to see wind turbines as devices of progress with purity in sync with the might and beauty of wind. Yet, they do not object to the Bedford auto racetrack in their guarded English countryside haven.

The first round in court to block Guy from erecting the turbines went to the neighbors. On the courthouse steps, Victoria Reeves giggled nervously into the camera as she claimed to be in favor of environmental reform while celebrating the win against windmills. “Of course we’re worried about global warming. That’s got to be something that we’re all concerned about. I mean we’re all doing our bit to conserve and looking at renewable energy, absolutely.”

Her smirk does not wash from my brain no matter how I try.

Guy returned to Bedford Town Hall in January 2010 with a proposal for three wind turbines. He awaits the council’s decision.

“Throughout our history, the deal was we left the world in a slightly better place than we found it. That was progress. The wheel, the rule of law, penicillin. It was our covenant with our children and grandchildren,” the archivist laments.

“The Age of Stupid” is a painful movie, and we loathe to suffer, but the film holds our attention like witnesses to a murder – the demise of our planet, our universe and all its inhabitants. The human stories connect us to our global impact and accountability. There are tidbits of sardonic humor, beauty and hope, but we are fed no sugar-coated fantasies.

“Stupid” is slick, fast-paced, violent and pervasively traumatic. Just what Hollywood insists upon. Trouble is, except for the future context this is a reality show.

Armstrong refuses to revisit the argument of whether we are responsible for global warming; the debate no longer holds merit. The filmmakers presume we are adult enough to take the truth and conscientious enough to take immediate measures, determined and unyielding actions, to reverse the physical harm to our universe and societal devaluation of the truly sacred – each other, for instance. Can we win against ignorance, naïveté, and egotism in time? I wonder.

The European, British, Australian, Dutch and Scottish Parliaments requested screenings of the movie before the official release. “Stupid” later launches with the greenest and biggest film event the UK has ever seen. Viewers come by foot, bicycle, rickshaw and electric, chip-fat and vegetable-oil-run cars. The projector run on batteries powered by solar panels.

As a result of the movie, with a nudge from Postlethwaite, the UK Government reverses its policy on dirty coal power. In addition, on September 1, 2009, the UK launches “10:10” – a movement to cut carbon emissions by 10% in 2010. Over 50,000 people, businesses, schools and organizations pledge to make a change.

“Stupid” opened in Manhattan in a solar-powered tent September 21, 2009. The event coincided with the UN’s Climate Week in New York. Celebrities walked a green carpet made from recycled bottles. The premiere was beamed out to 440 US cinemas and 63 countries.

Ageofstupid.net holds volumes of information about all aspects of the making of the movie, from idea conception to editing, crowd-finance and DVD delivery. Comments by principle characters and journal posts continue to quench our need to know what happens next.

“The Age of Stupid” will air on television in the United States in early spring 2010.

The Shift of the Ages film shares the Mayan Cosmo-Vision and Prophecy through the wisdom and teachings of Grandfather Cirilo Perez Oxlaj, also known as Wandering Wolf, Grand Elder of the living Maya. The film will be released in 2010, first at film festivals, then theaters, then via DVD and digital media.

The National Counsel of Elders Mayas, Xinca and Garifuna of Guatemala has an important message for the world. Their leader, Grandfather Cirilo, the protagonist of the Shift of the Ages film, discloses previously unavailable visions, concepts and ancient prophecies.

Many people know that a grand cycle of the famous Mayan Long Count Calendar ends in the 2011-2012 timeframe, but they may be misinformed about its meaning. According to Mayan prophecy, we have entered a unique period of time during which it is both safe and necessary to share this information to the public.

The Shift of the Ages film is the first official Maya discourse to the world.

The ominous date, December 21, 2012, may not be relevant to the Mayan Calendar; this is a Gregorian Calendar date. The crucial period of their prophecy is Año Cero or Year Zero in the Sacred Mayan Calendar. The Shift of the Ages film is about the special time in which we are living and the unique transition or “shift” between epochs of creation, what they call “Suns.”

  1. Why is there so much fear about December 21, 2012?
  2. What are the keepers of Mayan Prophecy saying now about this epoch “shift”?
  3. Why has the film crew shot over 300 hours of footage and 13,000 still photographs on five continents in remote areas rarely visited by Westerners to capture the essence of the Shift of the Ages?

Be the first to learn the answers to these and many other questions by becoming a Shift of the Ages Ambassador, and be instrumental in this monumental, evolutionary epoch of human history.
