Newsletter – April 2008

The Grid

   An angel, Alesha, spoke about "the grid" several years ago. I knew then that this was a most important event coming into being as we move from chaos to community. To the best of my ability I shall define this magnanimous encounter. "The grid" is a universal network of communication established with human beings as they awaken to their potential one by one.

The Grid is a lot more than that but thus far that is as clear a definition as I can give. What seems to happen when the grid is activated is a direct connection to the universal collective consciousness that spans the sleeping and waking states.      

     That may sound like science fiction, but it is truly the best way I can define the experience. I have been spending time in the activated grid while I am asleep. I have had several folks ask if it is just dreaming. It is clear to me that what I am experiencing is not a dream. It is beyond lucid dreaming and any other experience I have had in the sleeping state. 

    I have had glimpses of this kind of connectedness since 1975 when I first woke up to my potential through the unfettered bias of judgment. I was wide awake during a 15 year period and often found the only time I could escape that connection was when I was sleeping. I kept dream journals to describe my sleeping state. I reached a point where I would keep a tape recorder by my bed and in the morning upon play back I would hear stories in other voices talking about some really strange experiences. To me that was a way of life for a long time.

     What I am experiencing at this time is different from that state. In "the grid" I am meeting with current people of this planet and having major discussions. No one famous or anything like that, just ordinary folk who are working diligently to make a difference on our planet as we transition from chaos to community.

     I don’t remember the full extent of the conversations. I suspect that when the time is right I shall be able to download the information exactly as is needed in the moment. I am not certain that anyone can step into this experience. It seems to me that I have been invited in some way that I don’t fully understand. I do know that I am open to being part of the transition of the people and this planet. That has been my primary focus since I was four years old.    

     I invite you to begin fine tuning yourself to your potential to tap into the grid.  It’s All Sacred and Nothing’s Sacred.
