Barbara: Good morning, good afternoon to everyone! It is Sunday, January 28, 2018. We are here with Einstein and the Party of 12, and it’s 2018! Happy New Year! It’s our first reading of the year. As I was telling Cathy Kline and Robin Cordova, who are here with me, when we were chatting earlier, I traditionally have had no idea what the theme of a series will be. This one—“A Year of Redefinition, Regeneration, and Reinvention”—sounds like a whole bunch of fun to me. As always, it will be sequential, in several parts. However many there are, this is our banner for the year. I’m so excited that you are here, Cathy and Robin, and everyone else around the world who is daring to attempt to experiment with Einstein’s theories. You are greatly welcomed to our group of “regenerators.”
I want to start out by saying that 2018 is the 25th anniversary of Diaries of a Psychic Sorority: Talking With the Angels. The Psychic Sorority of the threesome Teresa McMillan and Kimberly Lilith Phelps and me was a conglomeration of the three of us coming together at particular times in our lives to start a group channeling. It was a monumental time without which we would not be here today.
I’m very excited about 2018 because I fully intend that we are going to re-release Diaries, and it’s my hope that we’ll have at least one new chapter updating. I’m so honored 25 years later to still have these friends and that we tested the Conflict REVOLUTION process. Out of the three of us came Conflict REVOLUTION. Without the three of us, it would not have been able to be tested and put into use in a practical platform.
In honor of the 25th anniversary and to every Conflict REVOLUTIONary out there who has dared to look this deeply into themselves and take this much responsibility for their energy, I want to welcome all of you. Whether you’ve called it Conflict REVOLUTION, whether you just know that you’re aligned to Einstein, for whatever reason you’ve been brought to this place, I want you to know how welcome you are, even if we never hear from you, if we never know who you are. It doesn’t matter. What matters right now is the mass action by people worldwide to ignite the compassion within themselves individually, one person at a time.
I want to start out redefinition, regeneration, and reinvention with the idea of change and how there is a cycle to change. Those of us who are all about change, who aren’t afraid of change, who understand change and try to ride the wave of change, sometimes we think, “Oh, yay! Change!” But most people resist change. The average human psyche has a kind of brake that gets put on when it comes to change. Perhaps it’s the fear of the unknown.
But I learned a couple therapists back about something that was called the Stages of Change. The models for this come from James Prochaska of the University of Rhode Island and Carlo Di Clemente, who developed the transtheoretical model of change in 1977. There are apparently five stages that we go through when we change.
The first is the pre-contemplation. In that stage, we have no intention of changing in the near future. When we get into the pre-contemplation place, we don’t even know we need to change, we’re unaware. For example, I went through some situations with some people of color lately wherein I was able to see what I would call my racist behavior, my intergenerational, preprogrammed racism. I didn’t even know I needed to change. So there’s a pre-contemplation phase we go through.
That moves into the second phase, which is where we start to think about it, to contemplate and to intend that we’re going to change. There’s a weighing of pros and cons of change during this time. What are the good things about having to make that change that’s so hard that people resist?
After that comes the preparedness phase, where you’re getting ready to change. You’re taking little steps that can help the behavior become part of your life.
That leads to the fourth stage, which is the action, where we’ve changed our behavior over the course of a period of time.
Then there’s maintaining that change.
I’m sure my therapist gave me this as a way to understand somebody else I was dealing with, but of course, you know the funny thing about that!
The reason I bring this up here is because if we’re going back to what Einstein has asked me to present this year about redefinition, regeneration, and reinvention, I think there will be phases of each part of these that have this cycle of change, where we’re not even aware we need to change. This also came out of a conversation Robin and I had a few days ago about how when we get into depressive places or feel incapacitated, overwhelmed, so much conflict, being driven, all the stress, that that’s the way our bodies and our bigger selves are showing our human minds that change is needed.
The conflict tries to break the pre-contemplative phase, where you don’t know you have to change. The conflict brings that awareness to the surface. How can we not embrace it and be thankful because it’s making us better, instead of keeping that emotion stuffed inside ourselves thinking that we don’t need to change? The conflict allows us to open that up and feel and breathe it.
In honor of the 25th anniversary of the Psychic Sorority, we blew ourselves up, as we call it! Being the queens of conflict, and then the REVOLUTION of conflict, literally the ones who wrote the book, I am—I wouldn’t say “pleased,” but it’s ironically appropriate, let’s say, that by December 2018, when we re-release this book on the anniversary of our first group, when we got together, I have no doubt in my mind that we will have used our tools appropriately and create something greater than we could have done [without the conflict]. Because apparently we needed to change, too, and we weren’t aware. So I’m embracing it all.
I’ll post a link to that model so you can see it in more detail. The important part is to understand where you are in that cycle of change. When we can understand that, ok, we’re on our way somewhere and we don’t quite know how we’ll make all those bridges or where the roads are going, but we just believe we’re going there—when we’re in that phase—it’s illuminating to take a look and ask ourselves, what part of the cycle of change are we’re in in this moment?
There are times we don’t want to change. We just dig our feet in and pretend nothing’s wrong. My description for myself used to be that I’d stand in the middle of the room stomping, my fists clenched, sweat dripping off my brow because I was so mad, pounding and screaming, “I’M NOT MAD!!!” Apparently that was pre-contemplative.
Without much further ado and with great thanks to everyone who participates and listens, thank you so much, I’ll ask us all to take a breath. I want everyone to get as comfortable as they can. I am tucked in my big king bed with my maroon down comforter, and outside there’s a beautiful, clean, white, fluffy snow falling in the forest. It’s so quiet, no cars, no airplanes, no ferries, no sound but what’s real. There is one of the last great bodies of water surrounding me, so I sit in the middle of a crystal.
Today I want us to breathe into the air that I’m surrounded by, this crystalline power of Mother Earth, of compassion, of creation in its purest form, the Earth that you are connected to. That’s the purest form.
We will command that only the most divine light shine down upon you at this time and the greatest good be present here.
The Party: Welcome to 2018! We want to thank Barbara for introducing us in such a way that really does set the stage for what we want to focus on this year. We are forever grateful for having an audience willing to take our processes and put them into your bodies. In this action of change—and that is the very stage that we’re speaking of, the action stage, when you take action to change yourself—you are indeed not only being a part of the evolution of human consciousness, to where Compassion is the governing force from within, but you are also changing the way that matter manifests around you.
This year we want to focus on the second of those. The first will be a byproduct of you focusing on the second: focusing on your energy, your life, your decisions, your actions, the action stage of change. Because 2018 will require that you are able to make decisions for the good of the whole at a very fast pace.
That doesn’t mean you can’t ever slow down and relax and not worry about anything. Quite the contrary. We don’t mean that there will be only stressful decisions coming your way. That can be any day of the week.
What we mean is, for yourself, for the internal decision-making aspect of your operating system—which consists of your Intuition impelling an action spurred on by an Emotional dictate connected to Compassion, and then the Intellectual definition and therefore action that gets taken—if you see that energy, those three human dimensions, and how they operate, you can see that Emotion turning into the voice of Compassion as Intuition to impel the entire system to take a step for the good of the whole system is the turning point of change, between that and then what the Intellect does in response to that impelling.
When we say you’ll be challenged to make decisions for the good of the whole rapidly, it isn’t a stress thing as much as it is, imagine getting your “blah-blah-blah” Intellect out of the way. Imagine the feeling of openness, of fresh air in your head. Imagine this picture that Barbara has painted of being surround by crystal water, the power of that water. It’s like she’s in the middle of a crystal, without noise, with fresh air, clean, untainted. That’s what we want your mind to look like. That’s the redefinition that we want to start out with: how to redefine your mind.
Your mind is the mechanism that operates the Intellect. That’s how we distinguish between those two terms. Intellect is a bigger contraption and the mind is a part of its functioning, in the intersection between spirit and physical. Your mind defines your mind, it defines itself.
As many of you experience and have been talking about, those definitions in your mind that are lodged in there from repeated patterns—now you’re realizing it isn’t even just your childhood, but centuries of lives you’ve experienced in other DNA space-time bodies, in other Lenses, other universes, going on right there on the surface of the planet. But this life, in 2018, is the life where you choose to take action and make that change.
So there’s a good redefinition for you if you need something to hold onto or to tack on the wall. There’s a good reminder that you need to look at a bigger continuum of what’s going on, that you are able to see a greater picture. You can’t lose sight of the personal, of course. That’s your platform. That’s the byproduct of all of this work.
When you regenerate, a very simple explanation is “to sustain, a sustainability.” Rather than being so depleted of resources and energy that you’re starved, there’s a continual flow of resource and a positive, direct use of that resource that increases the resource and does not deplete energy. It’s not like there aren’t still seasons or life and death, but there’s a regenerative operating system that is recognized, and those within it, you with the physical bodies, are working to be that change within it.
There are so many around the world right now on the planet in 2018, more and more and more are being driven to take action. When you look at the global situation right now, also try to remember this cycle of change. Many people in the world had no idea that change was needed. The uncovering of the truth is now bringing them to understand that, “We’d better have some change soon.” As you become more aware, you realize it’s not “soon,” it’s “now” when I need to make change. It’s now when I have to find a way.
In people’s behavior you’re seeing that some humans are pushed to a degree of insanity because of their unpreparedness, their clinging to that pre-contemplative stage. The kicking and screaming are intense. They blame other people. They want to bomb other people. You’ll see each individual on the planet being given the same power to change. Some will take it and some won’t. That is that moment we were speaking of earlier between when Emotion drives an Intuitive impelling—that’s one part of it—and then Intellect takes that and interprets it and takes action—that’s where that second part turns into something else.
If you were to also look (for those of you who are metaphysicians and like to see pictures of energy and how that looks) if you have an abscess and it’s throbbing, it’s Emotion at that deep level sending the message up, and Intuition is impelling, “Change.” It gets over to the other side and the message is blotted out and the Intellect puts its own message in there for the good of the few.
You can see this entire model in each individual who has been given the power to make this change. And some won’t. They’ll come around again. It’s OK. But we’re concerned with those who are at the stage where they want to make that change.
So this year, understand that that change means that you have to reinvent something. You have to reinvent what has not been operating correctly. Think about being an inventor. Do you define yourself as an inventor? Or do you say that you’re not very creative or can’t do things well? Thinking now that you’ll be required to reinvent your life, your actions, your whole operating system, you’re in the process—now you have to go back to the first and redefine yourself.
This is a cycle of change as well: redefinition, regeneration, reinvention. Again you come back around where there will be another wave and you’ll be redefining. Redefining is a regular part of your new operating system. Not only redefining those old definitions—that you’re not good enough, smart enough, powerful enough, can’t do it—but redefining who you are. As Barbara said, this will be a familiar mantra in 2018: “You have no idea how powerful you are.” And we mean that on every level. On the level where you can wake up in the morning and say, “I am going to accept that I’m more powerful than I even know,” and also in the humility of looking at the power of Compassion that you can never know, because it’s like knowing God. You can know God, but you can’t really describe God. You can’t have words for the whole of God. You are God in that sense.
You do not understand [how powerful you are] and are in this place of change where you’re out of the pre-contemplative stage and you want to make that change. You’re taking steps to make that change. You’re changing the system, the whole entire system. And you’re experiencing times where you’re just maintaining it. It’s working really well. You’ve done it!
But don’t allow a relapse back into being in a pre-contemplative state [to throw you], because that’s the cycle. It’s the cycle of waking up a little at a time. You can’t just let that whole power plant surge through your outlets. You wake up a little at a time.
We want to say a few words to all of you who work so hard. When you lose your bodies, you will have such a laugh! Not even in an ironic way. Just in the way where there’s a great relief that comes in knowing that you didn’t have to know it all. That you weren’t supposed to be in as much control as you drove yourself to be in.
Every nanosecond when energy was bubbling up through the earth, breaking through to the surface to create your physical body, heartbeat by heartbeat, breath by breath, present moment—talk about present moment, it’s happening now, the miracle! Even as you sit there and do nothing, you feel the miracle of energy surging up through your body to create your body. Then you’re projecting the entire universe and then perceiving it and interpreting it. This is a big job. This is a lot of information. You cannot just wake up to it. You do not just get there. You’re taking your life and committing it to self-awareness, to change for the greater good and for the tiniest good. The greatest good of you, the greatest good of the world around you.
When you lose your bodies and get back to this place, there’s a great joy and a reunion that goes on. We want to talk just a minute about death and say that our job here—those who have come together to make this commitment to help the humans who have bodies in 2018—is that this project and intention of ours to influence you is only about you taking care of you. Everything else becomes a byproduct of that. You do interact with the world. It’s so important that you make compassionate choices when you’re out in the world dealing with people. It strengths the network of the divine.
But really, in the end, when you love yourself in all these ways that we’ve been speaking of for 25 years or more, today, it’s about you and your relationship to yourself. In this year of redefinition, we’ll redefine you as perfect. A perfect operating system. You have the perfect operating system that you are going to change and evolve. And not because it’s not perfect, but because change and evolution are a part of its mathematical basis of regeneration and reinvention.
Einstein: I want you to think of yourself as inventors. In many ways, I invented theories, but not like those who went into the laboratory and put together some kind of physical model of the experiment they wanted, whether it was Faraday or the Curies. My forum was pen and paper. You become the laboratory for me and those of us who are here to inspire this change.
We cannot express enough the gratitude that we have that for 25 years we have been able to come together through Barbara’s voice with groups of people to share our viewpoint, to have them participate with us. It’s a success already. We have succeeded in fulfilling what we have set out to do: to plant the seeds of this kind of change.
The Party: And those of you who have been involved, for however long, you have seen the culture change around you, have you not? To be more open, more accepting, more interested, more integrated with these ideas of the inventors, yourselves, inventing these. You see the world change because of those inventions. That is a very honorable place for everyone to be. And any time we can help you redefine yourself, to understand that, just call upon us. We will tell you. You’ll have to think you’re a little crazy in your head to invite in Einstein and the Party, which is a huge party going on here. But then you know that. And you’re a part of it.
What we’re trying to do is to get you accustomed, all of you humans who still have bodies, to the part of your energy that’s already dead, here with us. You have to be careful, because your culture will tell you you’re crazy. But it makes no difference to us, because we know that when you lose your body, you’re going to have a good laugh.
Let’s start off 2018 redefining ourselves as inventors, and let’s use all the tools that we’ve given you and that you’ve learned to change that one person: you. Change yourself. Strive every day to find the places in your operating system that diminish you and change them. That process, if we had to break it down, would be two-part: breathing the Emotion (because when you break out of the pre-contemplative phase and realize that you have a problem, there’s Emotion that follows) and then changing that thought process and those decisions of what you’re going to do.
You’ll find that by the time we get to our last dissertation in Paris at the end of the year you will have found that those voices that diminish you will have diminished themselves. All of you will find the manifestation of this inner work in ways very specific to you, but they are expanding and bringing abundance, relationships, and a deeper trust in yourself, something that you can never lose. Once you learn to care so deeply for yourself, that becomes your operating system. You’ll never lose that again. Everything else springs from that.
With all of this said, we would like to now open for questions and conversation.
Robin: Hello. Thank you, Einstein and Party, for this wonderful dissertation. I have a question myself and also several from Cassandra. I’d like to start with Cassandra’s list. Her first question is, Are spirits on the other side able to taste food?
Party: To a certain degree, but not like you who have the physical chemical action that’s going on. It’s more like the memory of food.
Robin: OK, thank you! You touched on this a bit in your dissertation, about calling upon you and the Party. Her next question is, How much are spirit guides able to intervene and help us when we’re on earth? What is their role in general?
Party: Think of the guidance in two ways. One is, we’re out here cheering for you, rooting for you, being your friend, giving you sage advice, being just another entity in your community of life, your family, etc. To some extent, we can’t do anything any more than anybody else can.
On the other side of it, we’re not going to rig the game so that you “win.” But we work with you (the part of you we were talking about, the part of you that’s dead already) to ultimately manifest what you manifest. In other words, we’ll take the example of you, Robin, you’ve been feeling a little down, going through some times that require more nurturing on your part, a very common condition for the human psyche. All of those events that led to that condition were ultimately done by you with the assistance of the guides, but it’s your greater power that is manifesting those things around you.
Spirit guides are best utilized as friends and not as supernatural beings that will intervene any more than a friend might. If you were stepping off the curb and a bus was coming, a spirit guide might grab you and pull you back. But you wouldn’t want to rely on that. You’d want to be able to be aware of a bus. If you weren’t, then when you got here to the other side you’d have a good laugh. We hope that answers the question.
Robin: Yes, I think so! Thank you. She has another one here. Is there an earth spirit that represents the planet earth, and if so, what would it say to us, especially about the way humans have been treating the earth?
Party: There is an earth spirit. It works through gazillions of pieces, it speaks through the earth itself, the trees, the air, the animals, you. It’s saying that if you don’t take care of me, you will lose your own life. The earth will go on. It’s a similar message of what we’ve been saying to you as humans. If you don’t take care of yourself and your inner life, care for yourself with love and compassion, treat yourself with the greatest good of all, then you’ll lose your life. You’ll eventually end up living in some sort of purgatory where you’re not really living, you’re not happy, you’re lost in process. That’s the message right now.
Robin: Thank you. The questions that I had you touched on, with difficulty. Barbara and I were having a conversation about this the other day, too, in that sometimes the conflict—we are grateful for the lessons that come out of it and we know enough to not blame anyone and feel the blessings and stop and say, “Oh, my gosh, I need change!” But we also were wondering, is there an easier way to maybe find these abscesses, connect with them, heal them, without them having to play out in painful ways in real life, in that pre-contemplation stage?
Party: Two answers: one is yes and the other is no.
The yes answer is that if you think about how you dealt with emotion in your life 25 years ago, you have made it a great deal easier. You would have been creating a great deal more drama in your life, a great deal more inner turmoil, had you not been a student of this and yourself, not just us, but a student of yourself, who you came here to be. So you’ve made it easier.
But is it possible to extract the abscess without feeling the pain? That’s the no. If you think about Jesus, in his life, he went into that 33rd or 27th life—the final life as Jesus Christ—as perfect a human as could be. He processed Emotion in a way that no one else could understand. All of his emotions became his power. He did that through living all those other lives as Jesus. You have to do it that way, too, but in a smaller sense. You’re changing yourself through your self-awareness, and thereby what could have been suffering and pain 20 years ago now becomes your power. (Although yes, you’re going through a difficult spell now.)
The way that Jesus had to finally integrate everything was to feel physical pain that would give him an empathy for suffering that he didn’t have prior to being nailed to the cross. It’s not that he didn’t have empathy, it’s not that he hadn’t come as one very perfect evolved psyche of a human. But he needed to feel that pain, to connect on a molecular level. What becomes suffering is when you beat yourself up while you’re feeling the pain, you judge yourself, you diminish yourself, you say you shouldn’t be feeling the pain. All of that is what the suffering is. The rest of it is the first step to accepting that you’re going to feel the pain, and that then becomes the next step to transforming and regenerating the pain.
In other words, you have to quit denying the pain and feel what you … the reason it’s an abscess in the first place is because you don’t want to feel it! Because once you get there, then you can begin to transform it into something else. You can take that pain and turn it into pleasure, turn it into pure healing energy once you’re able to breathe it through your body and then marry it to an intellectual definition. You redefine it. You’re feeling a deep pain, but instead of saying, “What’s wrong with me?” or “That person did this!” you’re saying, “I am connected to the most powerful force in the universe, Compassion. It is by nature a regenerative force that is surging through my body now, regenerating all of my molecules with compassion and love.” You can see how much different it is. It’s still moving through your body, but now you are transforming it into something.
This is an experiment. We’ve done this for 25 years. This isn’t like we’re telling you something that’s been done over and over again. Our theory is—based on what we’ve seen, it looks good: by allowing yourself to feel the pain, it becomes your power. Then you learn what that means, to control your power, how to transform your power, what to do with your power. As we said, you are more powerful than you will ever know.
Robin: Thank you for that clarity and the model, hearing it again, it always seems like I take away another nugget. Just like any perfecting or mastery of anything. You go back in, you hear it again, you see it in a new way, you take another nugget, and then you apply it. I’m eternally grateful.
Party: Yes. Think of yourself as a sculptor. You’ve been given a huge mound of clay. It will take a lifetime to sculpt. You step up, you step close, you step back, you take breaks. It’s a never-ending story.
Robin: Which comes back to the cycle that Barbara opened with. It’s like a spiral.
Party: Yes, absolutely. A spiral, and about the place where you are on the spiral, because it keeps spiraling. If you think about it as a moving—it’s finite, but it’s continually spinning, and you’re going up. It’s sort of like those rabbit ears with the electricity that keeps going up and up. It’s nonstop.
Robin: Thank you. I’m excited about this series and inventing in 2018.
Party: Yes. In the sessions to come, we will have some sessions together of invention. What does it mean to invent? How to invent? Where does that divine vision come from of how to take the thought and turn it into the actual physical thing? That’s an exciting part for us, too. We, too, are eternally grateful that you are here with us in great collaboration. Thank you.
Robin: Thank you.
Cathy: I wanted to share a couple comments. I totally understand how when we’re in the midst of something difficult, we want to figure out how we can get through it without the physical pain. But when we can step back and look at it about being more aware, the whole purpose of life in the human body seems to be to experience the experiment of life.
What I came up with from the dissertation today is a sound bite for asking for help. Where I can come up with sound bites for the problem, the issue that I have, that’s easy to come up with. But encompassing a real powerful thing for me now is to, when I know I’m not in awareness or I’m in doubt about something and I want to have that Intuition, now I can ask for “crystal-clear intuition.” When it hit me, I knew that that’s my new mantra for when I’m in the middle of a crisis. I can just say “crystal-clear intuition” and then allow all that encompasses that to be a part of me. I wanted to share that. Thank you.
Party: Yes. The mantra is like an invocation of bringing forth that crystal-clear intuition. Remember that the cacophony of the Intellect, which oftentimes mars that crystal clarity, can still go on if you get into the space between the Intuition and the Intellect. When you’re in that place and you realize you have to ask for help and you’re evoking this for yourself, take a minute while you’re breathing and do a visualization.
Think about the Intuition and the Intellect as a joint that comes together, two bones that come together. They’re held together by cartilage and muscle and they bend and they’re connected to one another, but there’s a space between the two. That way you don’t have to waste time struggling to quiet your Intellect in the thinking process. It can go on over there. You’re just going to move to a quiet space for a minute. That will help the clarity address itself and get to you in that moment.
Cathy: Yes, thank you for the crystal-clear clarity!
Party: Now we will close the channel by saying that from where we’re sitting right now, we feel as if we’re in a circle. There’s a circle behind that and one behind that and one behind that. Some of the spirits on those circles that go up are people who will be listening to this in the future. Some are members of the Party who are here in afterlife with us. Some of it is angelic presence. It truly is a very large Party.
What we want to bring home to you in 2018 is that we’re always here. Whether you think of us in a football stadium or an operating room theater, however you see that gathering of intelligence and compassion in the form of this Party, we’re here. Come visit us any time. We will have as much joy talking with you as we have talking through Barbara today. We see great things happening ahead, for each of you individually, but also for the world.
When you despair and look at the world and it seems so crazy and you’re so stressed out, aside from feeling and breathing, remember that this is a cycle of change. You’re witnessing the movement from pre-contemplative space to understanding that change is needed. And you see it. There is no denying this when you look at your world today. It doesn’t mean that everything’s changed, but more and more and more people are standing up to say, “Now I will be the change. I am out of my pre-contemplative stage and I will be the change.”
Know that just as with you, when you personally go through some kind of change, the world is opening up to the bigger joy to where it doesn’t have to be suffering. There’s a ways to go, but 2018 we feel will be a year of great master change, and we are honored and pleased to tell you, for the 25th year, to watch and be amazed.

November 19, 2017
Barbara: Well, good morning, afternoon, or evening. It is November 19th, 2017. This is Barbara With, with the Party of 12, guided by Albert Einstein. You who are here with us, listening, either live or downloaded, know that I started this year doing this series I’ve called a Re-Boot Camp, one a month, designed to bring in other perspectives on the information that we’ve been studying for so long. I had special guests, people talking. And then summer came, and my life, as it is wont to do in summer, got very busy with other things, and I haven’t produced one since then.
I’ve been on a nice journey myself. I hope you all have been, shall we say, finding your path. I had a wonderful summer tour with my friends Fredy Argir and Bill Smith for about three weeks, playing music together. We’re old friends. We used to play back in the ’70s and we reunited on this tour. One of our members, Lonny Knight, passed away before the tour could take place, so Fred and I went on and did it. It was a really remarkable experience to play 12 shows in 16 days in about eight different cities again, as a musician who’s been on the road before—I started out as a musician.
On the very last day of the tour I fell down a bunch of stairs and broke my wrist, and that was a whole new turning point of life.
Now today, I’m here in Paris, where I’ve come for about six weeks on what I call a pilgrimage of creativity. I have an apartment with a piano and time enough to settle into Paris and develop more of a local feel. So far the experience of being in Paris is wonderful, beyond what I ever could have imagined. I’m in love here. I will come back and do this again. I’m in love with Paris.
But while I’ve been here, my friends back home on the Bad River Indian reservation in Ashland have had a bad time. I live on Madeline Island in northern Wisconsin and Lake Superior. The Bad River Indian Reservation, and Red Cliff—the Lake Superior band of Chippewa have a big presence in my community, and I’m very much a part of their lives. My friends’ nephew, grandson, son—a 14-year-old boy was shot to death by the police.
This was and is another event that I’m talking about when I say I think the world’s gone insane and it’s because we have a mental disorder. The Intellect is raging out of control right now. The imbalances that we experience personally and then the imbalances in the world have left us so that we don’t know what to think. What do we think any more? It doesn’t surprise you, does it, to hear me say this, after everything that’s gone on this year? Natural disasters, school shootings, hate marches—the world seems to have gone completely insane.
I decided for this Re-Boot that I wouldn’t plan anything. I wouldn’t have a guest because I wanted to hear from Einstein. I have to admit that after I fell down the stairs and tackled some postoperative narcotic psychosis, as I called it, I wondered if I had become brain-damaged. But it turned out I was de-toxing from all of the deadly drugs that they gave me during the operation. During that time I wondered how channeling would be after the traumatic and shocking experience of falling down about 20 stairs and breaking my wrist.
I can tell you, for me, it’s taken it to another level, the whole experience, a deeper level for me. For those of you who have had a before-and-after experience, you can attest to how it keeps getting more articulate and more precise and more inspiring.
I did a reading for a woman a couple of days ago. She said, “Do you get stuff out of this, too?” I said, “I get connected to what the truth is. Every time I do a reading, I get to go into that place of the non-physical and be connected to what the really big story is. When I come back to the Lens, I can be a little more detached and thus a little more effective and a little more able to enjoy life even when it’s not enjoyable.”
After Jason Pero, 14 years old, died, I wrote a story about it. So instead of writing music, I went back to my journalism. You can find it at the Wisconsin Citizens Media Coop. I wrote the story of his murder and the epidemic of murders and why there’s an epidemic of police murders, about what the structure of the law is that is allowing this to continue to take place. But on the bigger level, what are we going to do?
Those are unanswerable questions at this point, on November 19th, 2017, except that I’ve watched my community come together and not be hampered by racism. The county board has called a special meeting to be held at the reservation, big enough so everyone can speak. We’re going to come together as a community and make a change.
Regardless of if there will be justice in the political system, this gets back to what I’m looking forward to hearing today from the Party about the state of the world. Because I know in my brain, I know intellectually that my job is to live in the world but not of it. That doesn’t mean I don’t care about people, or I won’t take action or take steps to help my neighbors, or stand up for justice.
It means that when I know why I’m here and I know what my purpose is—to love, that’s the bottom line, to learn what that means—the whole world is a platform for me to put that into play. Then I’m more effective in having a meaningful, fulfilling life, despite the fact that the world might be coming to an end.
If you add that to what we’re doing— we are experimenting with the manifestation of creation with the intent to use our love filters for our own energy, to shape and intend that we’ll be the change. That’s why we’re here. I don’t think any of us came here to be punished for another life, any of that. What we’re here for is to use all of these circumstances to turn ourselves into love.
In that sense, with Jason’s unfortunate killing, knowing what I know became something much different from thinking that I have to go in there and demand that that police officer be held accountable for what he did. I don’t have to use a lot of energy and emotion trying to manipulate the Lens. I can step back and take a breath and say, “What can I use my energy for to make sure the good of the whole is achieved here?” I was able to do that with this event [by writing the story].
I know the family. It’s a horrible, horrible thing. I used all of that deep emotion to focus on writing a piece that was about educating people and asking the right questions, rather than roiling up in a terrible situation that has many sides to it.
Just the fact that I could do that in those circumstances was a sign to me of the work that we’ve been doing—and I say “we” because I can’t do this work without you all. And I do it alone, you do it alone, but we need each other to continue to remind ourselves of why we’re here in this crazy world right now.
As I mentioned in my blog the other day, my family has had two murders, my cousin Amy in 2006 and my nephew Howie in 2012, that forced me to examine my belief system, to ask myself what I believe about eternal life, about forgiveness. “Here are the deaths. What will you do, and how will you do it?” Applying Conflict REVOLUTION intentionally to each of them, I believe, especially with my nephew’s murder, that we made miracles. My sister has fully participated in that, and it has indeed created miracles.
So with all of this experimentation we’re doing, I’m hoping that those of you who are listening and thinking about what the unified field theory and Conflict REVOLUTION mean and how you use it in your life, at the very least you can know as you learn that it is effective. I will say, without a doubt, that every single time I do it, I get an outcome that is bigger than I could have done myself, going at it in the Lens, trying to prove justice needs to be done. I can do it better and have an outcome that’s bigger than I could have ever imagined.
Today I want Einstein to talk to us about the practicality of this. Many of you have been listening to this information and using it in your life like lab rats. I want to inspire you to never forget that it’s the baby steps. Your mind can’t logically draw correlations between how you taking care of yourself will help world peace. [It’s because] you are then becoming the one who is loving yourself. If Intuition is telling you to slow down, when you follow it, you are then the one who becomes the vehicle for love of self. It seems like such a little thing, and we you get carried away with all the details of our lives.
I know that you, Robin, are very busy right now, there’s so much going on. But when we slow down to the baby step, the next most advantageous step, we have the knowledge that by doing that little thing, taking care of that, taking care of your life, that you’ll effect an outcome or be guided somewhere that you couldn’t do by yourself.
For me, I think my life is living proof of it. You don’t have to prove it to anyone, but every day, when I feel and breathe, when I let myself listen to Intuition and do what it says without fighting it, I am able to create outcomes of much greater good all the way around. Why wouldn’t that ripple out into the rest of the world, why wouldn’t the people in the supermarket line, the librarian, everybody we come into contact with get to experience living love?
I’d like us to begin today with a guided visualization.
Close your eyes. Turn your focus inward. Take a few deep breaths. Let’s go into the vision that we are all out in the heavens looking down on the beautiful, beautiful planet earth. Linda’s somewhere around LA, Sharon’s in Minneapolis (we’re pointing on the map) Barbara’s way over there in Paris, Robin’s way over there in Washington state, Carmen’s in Romania, David is in Australia, Heike is in Norway, a bunch of people all over the world.
We’re looking down and we’re seeing the Lens that we are each creating. Robin, I can see you sitting in your kitchen or in a comfortable room of your house. But from here, up in the heavens, I can’t see anything but the planet. In these two places we begin to get accustomed to the fact that we are much bigger than our DNA space-time human body having the physical experience. Our energy and our operating system are so much bigger than we know.
One reason we begin with this visualization of being in many different places at once is to get you in touch with those places energetically in the DNA space-time body that is sitting there in the Lens. We want your physical body to also be connected to this ethereal perspective up here in the heavens as the Observer, looking down on the planet, the big, big, biggest picture.
So there’s the planet. Then there’s the physical world of the Lens. Then there’s the last piece of this holy trinity of Human Intention, which is the Source. That is in the middle of Mother Earth, the very center of the planet, where all humankind erupts from.
So here we are, out in the heavens. We see ourselves down there on the planet. We get into the planet, we feel and anchor into the center of the earth. And we feel a wave that is our identity, flowing from the source, from the center of the planet, flowing up through the earth, bursting out through the edge of the earth to create your physical body, which is then the projector and the perceiver of the entire universe.
Isn’t that amazing? Despite what’s going on in the Lens, despite all the terrible things we’re describing going on on the planet, isn’t that amazing? Creation of human life, the gravitational wave bursting forth, your physical body is projecting the universe and then it’s perceiving it back—the entire universe. All the energy is slowed down, everything separates so you can perceive separation, perceive the physical world.
To me, that alone is beyond description—even though we just tried to describe it! It’s like how there are really no words for God, because it’s too big. And when we start knowing ourselves this deeply, by the time we get to the Lens, yes, there’s a lot going on in the Lens. But it’s just a passing-through point. It is the manifestation of the creation, but it’s just a passing-through point for that wave that’s going on into the heavens, picking up into the earth’s electromagnetic field, going back down the North Pole, back down to the center, as it spins and spins at the speed of light squared. And the Lens is what slows that wave down and separates out everything else, creates your DNA body, puts you in that space-time, in that latitude and longitude.
I’ve noticed, being in Paris, that when I go to Google Maps, they don’t give you an address any more. They give you latitude and longitude. All of this is the mathematics. And that right there, what we just described, that vision of the spinning string and the human Intention, as we call it, the Observer in the heavens, the Lens of the physical world, the Source in the center of the planet, that is the operating system of human consciousness. What you program into it is what you’ll manifest in the Lens.
All of this can help us have a different perspective of what is going on in the Lens. And it means the difference between feeling like a victim to this physical world—“Oh, why, oh, why was I born at this time? Oh, my God, how can these horrible things be happening to us? Let’s blame the Republicans, the Democrats, the rich, the poor! It’s all going to hell in a hand basket.”
OK, I get that. I’m there. But when we can back up and remember our mission—world peace, one person at a time, starting with me—to become the love that will guide human consciousness into the next step of evolution, [then] we all have so much more power.
We will command that only the most divine light shine down upon you at this time and the greatest good be present here.
The Party: We are so honored to welcome you to this circle, all of you who are listening all over the world at different times, in different spaces, in different bodies. We have convened a collection of souls, shall we say, that at this time brings not a new message so much as an uplifted and supportive message.
All of the work that we are doing—those of us who don’t have bodies, who still have consciousness, who still have access to thoughts, feelings, senses, memories—we are working at a new level of consciousness ourselves. We, too, after all of this time and all of this work, have gotten to a place where our clarity is even greater, where our understanding of how to inspire has come a very long way in our mission.
Just to back up a bit, when we talk about our “mission,” the Party of 12 and Albert Einstein—who’d have thunk it (laughs)—we are talking about a very specific decision that we made in Afterlife as a group to work for the good of the whole, to bring information that we have learned in our lives as physical beings and now in the Afterlife as a new kind of consciousness, a new kind of power. We can’t talk to you at this point about our lesson, because it’s at a level that you as humans wouldn’t comprehend. And not because you’re idiots, but because you’re focused on something completely different.
So suffice it to say that we come to you today with an even greater understanding that your intentions, yes, indeed, have a huge impact upon the manifestation of your world. Your world is incredibly complex, and you as humans have had to dummy down what you understand of energy in order to have a human experience. You’re putting these multiple dimensions into a much smaller space that the Lens affords you.
You have a life-and-death focus on that Lens while you’re having a physical body. That doesn’t detract from your ability to expand your awareness of your non-physical self. In fact, it gives you a platform from which to work for you to expand your own consciousness, to understand in the course of one day in your physical body that when you wake up from the dead and your body opens its eyes and begins its projecting and perceiving experience, you have 24 hours in that day to have a new relationship to yourself in any number of ways. That new relationship over time in the physical body, one day at a time, is what changes the manifestation.
If you’re talking about something personal in your life—a conflict you’ve had with a neighbor or some puzzling situation in your life that you’re worried about—those are the moments when you have the power to take control of that energy and effect change on the smallest of steps.
You all know what we’re talking about. You know yourselves well enough to know when you’re in that place of feeling like you’re out of control—maybe anxiety has taken over, or there’s so much going on in the world that you can’t even begin to address how to resolve the conflict because it’s overwhelming—one tragedy after another, too much emotion coming, all of those things.
When you’re not in that state, when you’re in a comfortable, safe place, you can say, “You know, if in that moment I could change my thought process while the heavy emotion was coming through, whatever that anxiety was …,” you know that you could change the outcome of your life.
Not that you always have control—you haven’t trained yourself yet in how to take the control that is yours to take. But it is yours to control. Your thoughts are yours to control. You have that right and that power.
Whether you exercise it or not, this is one of the greatest moments of change that you could have—when overwhelming emotion is surging through you and you’re triggered by something that could very much be real. It isn’t like you’re imagining it. Seeing another mass shooting, you’ve gotten to a place where you’re numb because you cannot take in any more of that emotion.
We say, if you can take in that emotion and interject a new intellectual message as it’s coming through live, we know you can change that. What we don’t know is if you can do it in that moment. That is one of the most insane, out-of-control conditions that a human can be in, when you’re panicking, when you have anxiety or depression that manifests perhaps the other way in keeping you heavy and down and incapacitated rather than agitated—it’s all the same thing.
Despite what we’re going to talk about later on in this dissertation in your relationship to the state of the world today, more than ever we know that if you can get yourself there in the moment of that powerful surge of emotion and wrestle the Intellect back to being something of a superconscious nature rather than, “Oh, my God, the whole world’s coming to an end!”—you can remind yourselves that these are the moments you came here for: to feel and breathe, to move human consciousness into this next step of becoming the manifestation of the love that’s at our root. The world is so far from that now, it seems, doesn’t it?
This is why when you do it, you are building pieces of DNA that change the future of human consciousness. You’ll never see that when you’re looking at the world and at all the horrible things going on in the Lens and it’s causing you to go numb or to be conflicted or to want to run away. You can see it if you stop and remind yourself of your mission here and hold that space with your breath while you’re envisioning humankind turning that corner. You’re not just envisioning it. You’re becoming the change in that moment, when you take that breath. And that’s part of what moves the adaptation of human consciousness forward, like a missing link.
But your mind wants to complicate things. Your mind and your Intellect want to take control of the entire system. We want to suggest that as you deal with these situations, which are very real in the Lens, that you look metaphorically at all of those evil characters that are emerging: the people who have turned greedy, who are lying to you, who are stealing and destroying. Look at those people from your Source. They, too, are part of your gravitational wave that is being projected and perceived by you. They also represent a part of your Intellect that wants to grab control and define things as hopeless or helpless or to judge things or to blame someone or to blame yourself. And these thoughts of yours are part of the collective Intellect of human consciousness right now.
While you cannot control everyone’s thoughts, you can control your own. You can learn what they are, what they’re telling you. You can do an experiment. Once you learn those voices in your head—the thoughts that are greedy and want to destroy your truth, which is that you are a miracle having this experience, that you are powerful beyond measure—we are teaching you hopefully the power of your intention.
We are very honored and happy that Barbara has worked with us for all of this time and concur with the idea that every time you do this experiment and take control of your intention, that you muster up the power to make a change in your life. The change can happen overnight. It can happen right there. But you must think in longer terms. You must think personally that you’re here at this time unifying a whole lot of other [past] lives, learning a great deal more information than you ever thought you wanted to know, and dealing with things that you never dreamt you would be faced with dealing with.
You are in this world to do this, to be that change. What do you need to do to get a grasp of what your intention will be?
One thing we want to suggest is that you do an experiment with yourself. When you get up in the morning, after you say, “Thank you for another miraculous day of having a body that’s projecting and perceiving the entire universe”—that’s a miracle right there. That’s the first thing.
Then, as you set your intention, be tiny. Don’t try to change your whole life in one day. Focus on one step or another. We would say the first one is about that intention. Any time you feel you’re going into a situation where you don’t have control and you don’t know how it will work out and you’re triggered with uncomfortable emotion, find whatever it is that will be a little slap in your own face. Wake up! Remember:
I am a powerful person. I am a miracle just standing here. And I can change this. I can influence this. I intend to influence whatever this situation is that I’m afraid of for the good of the whole. And yes, I might fall down, I might make mistakes, I might stumble. Surely I’ll be feeling a lot of emotion. Guide me, Intuition, so that I am taking steps for the good of the whole here.
Sometimes you won’t know. You won’t be able to say, “Oh, well, here, this is for the good of the whole.” You have to trust what you are being impelled to do from deep in your heart—not from your thinking process. You need to listen to that Intuition that is deep within you, rising up always, every moment, part of that string that’s spinning at the speed of light squared, telling you that next most advantageous step for the good of the whole of creation—the whole universe that you are projecting and perceiving. That voice is within you. No one can take it away from you. You can drown it out and not know what it is, but it’s there, and it’s working. This is your chance.
So you fully intend that you will use this incredible power of love that is your birthright. You can’t escape it. It’s what you’re made of: Compassion, the fifth fundamental force of the universe. You will take this, and for whatever time you have left on this planet as that person in that DNA space-time body, you will become this change and you’ll fully intend to find out, to learn, to discover what that means in every moment.
With the holidays coming up, we think this is a perfect opportunity for you to experiment with triggers and change, self-change, self-revelation. How loving can you be, first and foremost, to yourself? That’s the question.
Are you going to let voices in your head that belittle you, judge you, demean you bring you down? Because you can and you will. But there’s a bigger force now as you also become a witness to what that Intellect is doing and make conscientious decisions to change what those thoughts are while you are feeling the feelings.
You can do it if you’re just happy, sitting around thinking about it, you can change thinking. But the front line is when that discomforting emotion surges through that you don’t want to feel and then those thoughts are triggered. You can go numb and not listen to your thinking, and you might find yourself perpetuating the pain, the fear, the anxiety that you’re trying to release from.
These ideas are not revolutionary. You hear them in other places. This is not something only we have said. You hear these concepts in many other avenues of teaching and learning. But only you can know you. Only you will be the one who can clearly say what will get you to change your perspective, to deal with your thoughts and emotions differently. Only you can do that. That’s the ultimate power that you’ve been given, and that’s why you’re here at this time, in this world.
As difficult as the state of the world is right now, the other side that we see is that human consciousness is indeed making a huge leap forward. Because of having to deal with all the conflicts in the world through the ages, because of people now wanting to find completely new and revolutionary ways to approach the world, to make this world the place you want your children and your grandchildren, seven generations, to be born into.
And it’s working: the babies being born today come with so much greater sensibility than you could ever have imagined. That doesn’t mean you must stop doing your experimentation of how you can be love, but maybe it can inspire you to keep going with it when you look upon the faces of the new children coming into the world.
It’s a very joyful time! You’re seeing souls coming willingly to the planet. “Take me! I can do it! I can become love.” They’re not afraid. They know what they’re getting into on a soul level, and they’re happy to be there.
Every generation is helping to take that step. The ancestors are also participating in pushing this evolution forward. Remember, this is all about adaptation. Human consciousness and energy are about adapting to what is manifest.
That’s your life, too, in a nutshell. You get up every day. You put one foot in front of the other. You think you have a plan—“I’ll go to work at 10:00. I’ll do this at noon. I’ll do this at 4:00.” But you have a whole day that rises up for you to discover what your relationship is to it, how you’ll make decisions, how you’ll approach it, and what your relationship with you will look like as the basis for the projection that you see the world as.
We are thoroughly grateful on all levels that you are listening, that you are coming together, that you’re pushing yourselves to learn more than anyone can teach you but yourself. This is an exciting and inspiring time for us in the evolution of human consciousness, and you have, forever, our thanks.
Are there any questions or conversations?
Barbara: This is Barbara. (laughs) I know I’ve never done this before, where I’ve just jumped out of the channel and had a question, but stranger things have happened in the world.
I love all that you say, and I know that it’s true from my point of view as the person who’s been with this maybe the longest, with you, with Einstein and the Party. Do you think that humankind will get it in our lifetime? I get pretty afraid sometimes.
In fact, before I came to France, I said, something could happen between North Korea and the U.S. and I might not be able to go home. And then I started thinking about, if something did happen, then the U.S. becomes a whole other country. I know we’re not supposed to go there, but it still sometimes seems way too big for me. You know I live this way, and everything you say I find true. But I need a little bit more to understand.
Party: Well, we would say that it’s an experiment to the best of everyone’s ability. You ask, will humankind get it in your lifetime, and which part of humankind? It’s like the story of the elephant and the five blind people who are touching the different parts of the elephant. It’s already happening.
You could think of it this way: that if it weren’t happening, there already would have been a great cataclysmic event. Not to say that there can’t be, but because of the consciousness-raising through the years, because of the millions and millions of people who are participating in this like you are, it could be a lot worse. And that’s what you can’t see. That’s what we can’t measure so much. It’s a psychological perspective that can help you not have to worry so much about those kinds of questions. It tricks your mind into thinking about it in a different way that can free you up And that’s the idea: detachment.
We have taught this information and will continue to teach this information very firmly and concisely. We understand about human emotion. We understand that humans get frustrated. But it does you no good if we don’t keep a strong hand to hold you accountable for your power. We feel that your power and getting control of it is the answer anyway, whether everyone on the planet does it or not. If they did, we could effect change very quickly if everyone did Conflict REVOLUTION and looked at the world that way, asking how they could contribute to the good of the whole.
But you don’t have to wait for anybody to do this. You can do it for yourself, and that’s all you need to be concerned about.
Barbara: That was curious. (laughs) Asking a question!
Robin: I was surprised that you asked a question.
Barbara: Do you have one?
Robin: I think it was answered in the channel with the slowing down part. I think I was more going to share my experience with that lately, if they wanted to expand on it a little bit.
The question was asked in the channel, and that was, when things get overwhelming, the mind takes over and says, “We have to do this, do that.” We speed up, and that creates more chaos. It’s almost counterintuitive to slow down.
That has helped me lately to give myself the space to process the Emotion and hear the Intuition, to hear the next step. Our minds will say, “You don’t have time to slow down,” but in reality, time is an illusion. It gives us the space to step out of time and expand the present moment, to bring that deep Emotion through, to suspend the mind so that it doesn’t freak out about taking the space and the time. It creates more of an expansion.
Lately I’ve been doing this, and people around me are saying, “Aren’t you worried? You haven’t done this, you haven’t done that!” I think there’s a bigger part of me that says, “The picture’s too big. I can’t see it. I’m going to slow down. I need to process this right now, so I’ll do that today, and the next step will show itself tomorrow.” That’s why I say that the question was very much answered.
Barbara: Thanks for sharing that. I agree that in that moment when we think we’re so busy, if we step out of time, it changes the whole thing. Suddenly—yeah, we’re still busy, but things are getting done. I personally find a great relief from just following my Intuition.
Robin: It’s such an act of self-love.
Barbara: It really is.
Robin: When they talk about feeling that sense of Compassion, just to expand the state for all of that to come there, more love, more Compassion, more Intuition, more peace.
Barbara: I was listening to a young man I went to see last night [Adam Sweeney] who was trying to explain his process, which was very much like Conflict REVOLUTION, and he called passion and emotion “excitement.” Once we step out of time, take some breaths, feel self-love, even though the tasks are not something you’d want to do the rest of your life, here it is in front of you, part of your life, you can get a little more excited about it. That certainly has to add to the entire experience and a lot of how the experience is shaped, to be manifest.
Robin: That’s true. In that moment, you can say, “Huh, that’s curious. Look at what just showed up in front of me.”
Barbara: Right. But we’re sure not taught to live this way.
Robin: Yes, we are. We’re taught and we’re practicing and we’re lab rats. We’re blessed. We are.
Barbara: Right, we are.
Sharon: Robin, can I ask you a question about what you said when you were talking about slowing down?
Sharon: Are you talking about slowing down your thinking in your mind? Does that translate into slowing down your physical actions as well?
Robin: I slow everything down. I stop making choices. I stop frantically doing busy things or feeling like I need to accomplish the 10 things on the list today. I slow down my breathing. I’ll even sit in mediation maybe for an hour.
Sharon: That was another question I had. OK, all right.
Robin: Things like that, where you would think, “I don’t have time for that.” But we have to make time for that, because it’s the important stuff. The little details, not as much. They’ll come out. And the other thing that Einstein said was to pick one or two things. I’ve been doing that, too. “OK, I can’t do 10 big things, because I need to sit in meditation and process this sadness right now.” After I’m done with that, my Intuition will tell me what big things I can cross off the list. It’s been a way of operating from Compassion and love first. And then what happens is that the stuff you delayed you were supposed to delay because there was something coming. I’ll share an example.
I’m in the process of moving from an island and going to a city. It’s overwhelming. I couldn’t make a choice of where to live in the city, what to do. I was sitting in mediation crying instead.
And then all of a sudden a wonderful woman showed up in my life and I’m able to rent a room in her house. She’s organizing a workshop that I teach in her living room. I couldn’t have seen any of that had I just frantically pushed through everything. Instead I slowed down for two weekends, what would seem like accomplishing nothing, but meditating and crying, and now I’ve got this beautiful thing happening. Sometimes you can’t see what’s coming, you can’t see the big picture.
Barbara: Sharon, did you have any questions?
Sharon: No, and I’m glad you asked your question. I have a delayed soaking-in time. The questions don’t come until later. I was happy that you asked the question you did. I’ll probably have to come back and listen to it again.
Barbara: It felt new to me, the voice.
Robin: You mean the answer felt new?
Barbara: No, the voice, when they said, “We’ve reached this new place of evolution” in the beginning. Like they were super-excited that this is the first group that they’ve done in this new state.
Robin: I felt that, too.
Barbara: And the voice was very distinctive, not one I’m real familiar with. Maybe that’s the deeper, richer, fuller voice of the collective, or maybe there’s some new personality that’s stepping up to the plate.
Robin: And you said you’re in a new place, too.
Barbara: True, that too. I saw that new place when I wrote the article about Jason’s death. When I was done with it, I realized that there was no insinuation of blame, none of what they were talking about, “We have to get justice done. This is despicable.” It was about, “Here’s the law. Here’s what happened. Police officers and military people don’t have interchangeable jobs. The police are supposed to de-escalate, the military is supposed to escalate.” There are all these factors. The officer who did it, who is he? For all intents and purposes, he’s just a normal guy. I could see that evolution in my writing, the articulation of that.
Party: We will bring this channel to a close. Once again, our gratitude knows no bounds in this work that we do together, all of us.
We want to encourage you to get small with yourself, get to the moment with yourself as much as you can. Discover what those moments hold for you. Learn about who you are through those moments.
Really expand your perception to be able to separate your deep emotion from your conscious thinking. See them. Experience them as two different organs, two different energies. Deal with them accordingly. And then listen for that intuitive impulse rising from your heart, impelling you to take that next step for the good of the whole, and study yourself.
From now till the end of the year, we think you’re going to have an opportunity to see in action what we’re suggesting. There is great positive, powerful change in the air, and a lot of this is housecleaning, awareness-raising. It’s never easy for humans to have their awareness raised. (laughs) It’s usually something that happens with kicking and screaming. But all of you have a chance to be the fish that throws itself up onto the land and changes that breathing.
It’s an exciting time, and we are so honored to be in service to you. So yes, go off, watch, and be amazed.

If I had to describe the State of the World today in one word, I’d say “insane”:
Exhibiting a severely disordered state of mind
From my seat on the bus, it looks like the collective Intellect of the planet has lost Its mind. No one knows what to think anymore. The shock of the transparency that’s sweeping the globe—everyone’s true nature coming out, including Mother Nature— creates a cognitive dissonance, leaving our minds fluctuating between numb and constant conflict. Nothing is predictable and anything can happen at any time.
Watching the news and looking at the state of the world can leave me hopeless, even terrified. Talk about the End Times. We’ve hit the survival level of needed change, so change is happening, whether we like it or not.
What are we to do in a world that seems so out of control?
I believe my part is to make peace in myself, and then make peace with the state of the world. Believe me, I do not say these words lightly. We’ve had two murders in my family. Making peace with those events forced me to deeply challenge my beliefs about the nature of life and death, my purpose, forgiveness, eternal life.
Finding peace with the world, just as it is, is a similar challenge. How do we make peace with an insane dictator, an idiotic president, a war machine, natural disasters, monster storms, or any of the other disparaging inequities and horrific conflicts happening all around us?
I believe we are here to be a part of creating an elegant transition: to use our own love to guide the next step in this evolution of human consciousness that started long before we were born and will carry on long after we are gone. We are here to become the change and be the love we are looking for and that the world so desperately needs.
We came here to change our own operating system from one of fear and conflict to one of love and unity. We are here to learn to make decisions for the good of all. Regardless of what is happening around us, we have been given power over ourselves—our thoughts, feelings, senses, and decisions. We have been given the choice to act in love, or not.
That is the good news! That no matter what anyone else does, we don’t have to allow it to sway us in how we act. No one can take our self-love away from us but us.
Einstein and the Party have a brilliant way of framing this that brings me great peace and hope. Please join us for our next live 2017 RE-Boot on Sunday, November 19 at 9 AM Central. I have no doubt they will have much to say on this subject. It’s sure to be uplifting and inspiring, a much-needed condition considering the state of the world right now.
Remember, when the plane is going down, put on your own oxygen mask first. Let’s get ourselves operating in love first and foremost, and then may we have the greatest influence possible on our local universe. And if anyone can give us some practical step-by-step instructions for how to self-love, it’s Einstein.

Welcome back to our 2017 RE-Boot Series! After an event-filled summer break of music, mayhem and a fall down the stairs, we’re back, reporting from Paris for #6. Looking forward to catching up and reconnecting with you and the Party. Hope you can join us. If not, watch for the download posting.
On the night of August 26, I fell down 20 wooden stairs, hit a concrete sidewalk, continued down three more granite stairs and landed in the yard below.
As I was tumbling, I remember thinking, “This might not be good.”
When I finally stopped, I stood up, checked my neck, back and general condition, and realized I had broken my wrist. After a trip to the emergency room, surgery was scheduled for several days later to put in a metal plate.
Luckily, the fall happened on the last night of my three-week musical tour. Not only had the tour ended literally two hours earlier, but the fact that I had only broken my wrist was nothing short of miraculous.
After coming through surgery, I began the healing process, devoting my energy to the intention that I would make a rapid and full recovery. At first, I kept reliving the fall, over and over. It was traumatic. I wondered what allowed me to fall in such a way as to not damage anything but my wrist. Was it just luck that I did not break my neck, hip(s), leg(s) or other bones, or end up paralyzed, brain damaged or flat our dead?
In a reading I did for my sister last week, Einstein said this about my fall:
The greatest healing power that you have is your own self-love. There’s a new kind of layer of supernatural awareness that surrounds your bodies now. It’s about not hiding your body from your soul. Whatever it was in Barbara’s fall that allowed her body to not break, her neck to not snap—whatever those magical intentions were at this point, we are not quite articulate in how to describe the neurological connections between that Greater Barbara who was (think of it as dancing, or maybe performing surgery) instructing [her body], “Don’t hit there. Don’t hit there.” How did the energy cross-reference from her bigger self to her physical body? What was the intersection of intelligence and bodily response that allowed that to happen?
Our Einstein tells us that we nurture synchronicity when we allow Intuition to be in charge of making decisions. Bypassing the logic of the Intellect, Intuition will guide us to the next most advantageous step for the good of the whole. Is Einstein saying above that the system is so ingrained in how I operate that it works even in the case of falling down the stairs?
Would that explain the other events in the past several years that could have ended poorly? The hit-and-run crash that totaled my car in 2011 that I walked away from, the Wimberley Flood in 2015 that I was only blocks uphill of, the terrorist attack in Paris later that year that was right around the corner from my hotel—could my “good luck” be a greater form of self-love?
The truth it, it’s a grand experiment and we are the researchers as well as the lab rats. Einstein has given us the road map and step-by-step instructions for changing our own lives first and foremost. From that inner change comes the outer manifestation of the inner peace and self-love we create by aligning to Compassion.
I don’t know the answer. I do know I dedicate myself to living aligned to Compassion and that has changed my life. In fact, at my last doctor’s visit on October 31, he declared my healing was six weeks ahead of schedule and gave me a clean bill of health. Just in time to head to Paris, where I will be for the next month or so, living the life, working on music, singing some jazz, and immersing myself in yet another effort to live fully, richly, deeply while still in physical form.
So far, so good.
In gratitude for my good fortune and extraordinary gifts, from now until the end of the year I am happy to offer a full one-hour reading for $75.
Author of Trust and Allow the Process of Life, In-Joy
Good morning. It is Sunday, April 23rd, 2017. I am Barbara With. We are here with the Party. Partyof12.com is where you can find all things Einsteinian from beyond the grave, news from the Party of 12, and of course information about Conflict REVOLUTION, our imagined Einstein’s miraculous process for world peace, one person at a time, starting with you—or me. I’ll start with me, and you can start with you.
Today we are broadcasting from Denver, Colorado. I have several things I want to talk about before we get to our special guest today, my friend Leslie Stewart, a psychic channel and author of Trust and Allow the Process of Life, In-Joy! This is a book of knowledge that she has published from her talks with Orion, her collective voice of guidance. We’ll hear how she became a channel, and then I want to access her thoughts on some ideas about joy. I named this “The Politics of Joy,” because I myself am often a skeptic. When I get in my worst conditions, I am skeptical about joy, especially in these increasingly dangerous times. I think we can shed some light on how we can move through for our highest good.
I’ll also update about last month’s show. We had some very interesting revs, and I particularly have been having a wild ride through one that I named “Miscommunications and Assumptions.” As I predicted at the time, this revolution is going to be with me for a very long time. It’s quite similar to the revolution I had in 2002, where my sound bite was, “She is a liar,” which turned into “I am a liar,” which turned into sort of a mantra. We can so easily lie to ourselves, and we can so easily believe those lies. “Miscommunications and Assumptions” has already changed my life, and I’ll share about how I am making different decisions and how it is leading to very compassionate outcomes.
Earlier this week, Debbie sent me a link to a video of some old footage of Albert Einstein. It was so wonderful to see that video. (It’s posted on Partyof12.com.) We’ll listen to it, because I want you all to hear his voice. I don’t know what year they were recorded, but I encourage you to watch that video. I don’t know why it affected me, it’s not like I haven’t been channeling Einstein all these years, and I love Einstein, but when she sent that to me, what struck me so was his voice. The message is also important, but this is his voice:
“We should strive not to use violence in fighting for our cause, but by non-participation in anything we believe is evil. We are concerned not merely with the technical problem of securing and maintaining peace, but also with the important tasks of education and enlightenment. Without such freedom, there would have been no Shakespeare, no Goethe, no Newton, no Faraday, no Pasteur, and no Lister. [Science has provided the possibility of liberation for human beings from hard labor.] When the ideas of humanity are war and conquest, those tools become as dangerous as a razor in the hands of a child of three. We must not condemn man’s inventiveness and patient conquest of the forces of nature because they are being used wrongly. The fate of humanity is entirely dependent upon its moral development.”
“The fate of humanity is entirely dependent upon its moral development.” I brought this forward today first of all because when I started channeling in 1987, the voice that came through me had a very heavy, very particular, peculiar accent. Try as I would, I could never duplicate it when I wasn’t channeling. In 1994, after hearing a woman on television speak with the same accent, I found out that she was [speaking in] Yiddish. So OK, there’s one more reveal of Einstein. But that was several years before he stepped out and identified himself, in 1998.
So hearing this voice the other day was like that old voice. Since then, all of you who have been listening to me channel will agree that the voice has changed, it’s very much a collective of different voices. My voice is sometimes stronger; it’s not quite the same. But I got nostalgic when I heard that. And more importantly, listening to his voice from the past and hearing the things he said back then gave me chills, because these ideas we are working with here with our imagined Einstein are certainly a continuation of his words in life, his mission in life. That video brought home that he’s still a visionary. The last time I had a book signing here in Denver, a young woman, perhaps 20, came up, and said, “I love Albert Einstein!” He is enduring through the ages. Yesterday someone said, “I heard that video on Facebook.” So he’s getting around on his own, and I’m happy, because there’s so much that we can bring forward to help with the fate of humanity and its moral development.
Before I get into talking about “Miscommunications and Assumptions,” I want to let you know that I have been sneaking off and being on the radio. I found a blog that allowed me to apply, so to speak, to be a guest on radio shows. It was quite an extensive application. They sent it out to the nine categories that I picked, and I immediately began to get invitations to be on radio shows. I have done three or four; some have aired, some have not. I’ll get my website up to date. The one that is the most curious that I want us as our little group to follow specifically is Mack Maloney’s Military X-Files. It’s not just Mack Maloney but also his two co-hosts Juan-Juan and Commander Cobra. They broadcast on military networks online. They just picked up the Inception Radio Network in the UK that reaches about half a million people—a big reach.
These guys are hilarious. Mack is a published author, with many futuristic science fiction-fantasy books about saving the world. He also has a book entitled UFOs During Wartime, which I downloaded and have been reading. I’m fascinated by the research that has been done on sightings of UFOs during wartime and why they come at wartime. (I’ll post links.) I’ve been binge-listening to get up to date, because they’ve asked me to be a regular guest on the show. I’ve been on twice so far. One of the things they’ve been talking about is that Juan-Juan and Commander Cobra apparently have some conflict, and they need some help. So I’m looking forward to seeing what can be done when I next am on the show about exploring their conflict. I secretly think their conflict is quite dramatic, for the radio, but it’s interesting to have a triad of men.
And they talk like girls. They do. Now, they’re all men, and they’re military guys, so they don’t want their identities to be revealed because they are still in the military. I am in a small quandary about ending up—I know it’s no accident that I ended up here, but here we are with the war makers. They’re lovely, wonderful people. But they are the ones who pull the triggers. So that will be an interesting conversation for the future as we move forward.
I want to give you an update about “Miscommunications and Assumptions.” If you remember, I had had a conflict—and it doesn’t even matter what all the details are—where my sound bite was, “She is not communicating well, and she is making assumptions.” So of course I revolved that around to “I make assumptions,” and I immediately set to work to see where I make assumptions. It was a daunting observation because the world is based on assumptions. Once I started watching myself, I learned two very important things: I make assumptions all of the time, and mostly they’re wrong.
I had my conflict and got my revolution and started watching in Charleston, and then I went to New Orleans to meet one of my dearest friends, an integrity activist. She’s just lovely. I know she sometimes gets a little dramatic, so I thought, “I’ll go to New Orleans, I’ll get my own room.” We met the first night, and it was wonderful. We hadn’t seen each other in several years. We went on the ghost tour. She’s a ghost tour operator. We planned our next day. Her boyfriend had to go in the hospital and get some day surgery, but after that she was going to take me to a graveyard.
I texted her in the morning, and I never heard back. She never returned any of my texts. I had decided that, well, you never know. My mind started to say, “Maybe she’s codependent. Maybe she’s avoiding me”—all assumptions. I decided that this was important enough to be some kind of demonstration that I was not going to make assumptions. I had a beautiful day. I had to get up early the next day to go to the airport. And I never heard from her. She never answered any of my texts.
I got to Corpus, and I thought, “I’ll try her on Facebook.” She told me she had called me and texted me several times and was so sorry we couldn’t connect. This began a very intense observation process of me not making assumptions, because clearly there were no calls on my phone.
I opened myself up to the universe and said, “Show me what’s really going on. I’m not going to assume one thing.” And as I went about my day, in a typical ConRev fashion, where we ask to universe to show us, I started to get images. One was of her and me standing in the street in New Orleans and me showing her a text I had texted to her last summer when her phone was stolen that said, “Do you know whose phone you stole? We’re a bunch of witches! We’re going to cast spells!”
In the discovery process, it came to me: did I block her? Her phone had been stolen, and I had just written that text. Sure enough, I had had her blocked since August! That was a huge hit on my part of all the assumptions I had made for six months about my friend who never calls me back, who never texts me, does she not like me any more? The next part was that I was having trouble getting hold of my friend in Charleston with whom I’d had the conflict with the original sound bite about assumptions. I had called her, left a message, I wanted to highlight her on the show, and I never heard back from her. She finally emailed me and said, “My friend never got her reading link.” I said, “I’ve been calling her.” I gave her the number I called, and there was her voice, but it was a different number. It was confusing.
I assumed—I assumed!—that I had been hacked. I scrubbed my phone, and when I restored it, there were six months of messages from my friend in New Orleans. Six months! Text, messages! Every month, October, November, December. I was at Standing Rock. She was calling. I never returned her calls. What must she have assumed?
The moral of the story is to really pay attention to the assumptions we make. When we go into thinking, “I’m not going to have any assumptions, I’m just going to let the universe show me what the answer is before I confirm it,” you know when the truth is there. There was the truth. I had blocked her for months! A very powerful rev that will be with me forever. Now I say, “I’m pretty sure that—” “Oh! Am I making an assumption?” And it’s really changing my life. It’s changing how I respond to people. You know how you get when you assume that someone doesn’t like you, you get a little edgy? It’s reducing all of that and making my relationships and working through other conflicts I have much easier. It’s so much easier to get to the outcome that’s for the good of all.
So be careful what you assume!
To introduce Leslie, I want to tell you one more story.
I heard it on This American Life, called “In Defense of Ignorance.” If you know This American Life, you know that they take a topic and expand upon it in three or four acts with different substories. The substory was that the reporter, Lulu Wang, of Chinese descent, had found out that her 80-year-old grandmother, who lives in China, was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. Apparently she only had three months to live. Lulu’s great-aunt, who lived below her grandmother and took care of her, made the decision not to tell Grandma the diagnosis. Lula was very upset with this. She felt like this was deception and that people should know and should be told so that they could get their affairs in order. But the great-aunt was very clear. “We are not telling her.” No one in the family was allowed to tell her.
They decided to hold a party for the whole huge extended family, to come to China and see Grandma Neenee for the last time. Neeneee’s first-born son had just gotten married in Japan. He had been planning to come to China in a year and have a big party to celebrate his marriage, so he moved that up a year. That was the excuse that they were giving for keeping this from Neenee. And not just keeping it, but the whole family’s coming, and they have to pretend that she doesn’t have only three months to live and that this is really a happy party to celebrate her son’s marriage.
Lulu flies over to the party. (You can listen to the whole episode.( It’s truly fascinating how the family dealt with having to be at this party pretending to be happy looking at Mom or Grandma and knowing she was going to pass away in just a few months.
The long and the short of it was, the Chinese have a belief called “chongxi,” meaning “to rinse out joy,” the belief that you can wash away pain and suffering with joy. During the course of this trip, Lulu discovers that Neenee had had a mastectomy and had been wearing a prosthetic breast, and she never told anybody, because she didn’t want to burden them with the worry. That was the whole idea behind the lie they were telling her: that they weren’t going to burden her, especially if she was sick, with the worry. If it was to happen, it would. To give away the end of the story, Neenee’s still alive, three years later. Apparently at her last checkup, she got the same diagnosis, and her sister, Lulu’s great-aunt, decided to tell her that had she lost the findings, but they were the same as last time.
I’m glad we have a doctor in the audience, because my philosophy has always been that if you don’t tell me that I’m sick and then define what will happen, I have a better chance of manifesting a different outcome. Hearing this story was enlightening. It was all about the idea of “chongxi,” that joy can wash away misfortune.
This is probably a good time to introduce my friend Leslie Stewart, who is in Ohio today. We’ll talk about her book, which I had the honor of helping her with. Good morning, Leslie! Welcome to our show!
Leslie: Good morning, Barbara, how are you?
Barbara: I’m excellent.
Leslie: I love the story you just spoke of. In many ways, that’s how I’ve lived my life, through what some people would say is ignoring diagnosis, ignoring the outcome of something that could be tragic. I reframe it, put it in my framework where I believe that what is best for myself is looking at things in a positive manner. If someone gives me a diagnosis of something, I process it and I let it go through me, and then I say, “But this doesn’t have to own me.” I’m putting ownership and responsibility on myself as to how I see myself processing all of it.
Barbara: That is so insightful. I have to say that when I was working on your book with you, I was getting a little frustrated because I’ve been working on conflict, and it’s almost the opposite, where when you have to go into a conflict you don’t want to be ignorant of certain things. But from what I see in your writing and from listening to your channeling from the website and reading your Facebook posts, you are always very positive. Orion always seems to be in joy. I’m so enamored of that.
Leslie: Yes. Orion teaches that above and beyond all else, always be true to yourself. If you’re being true to yourself, no matter what that is, whatever is true for you, make that your M.O. If I’m being true to myself and being positive is being true to myself, then so be it. If you’re one who is involved with other things outside of self, whether it be politics, medicine, whatever it is, being true to yourself in that realm of your experience is what’s important. And it doesn’t matter to me or to anyone else how you deal with it as long as you feel that it is coming from your heart space, from who you believe to be you. That is the message that Orion’s always giving out. Be true to yourself. However you come into that, own it and be it.
Barbara: That would answer the next question I had! (laughs) You must be psychic! Lately, I would say since we’ve been doing this Re-boot, I have experienced more real joy than I’ve had maybe ever. There are some days when I am so happy, it’s like I’m ADHD with happiness. It’s not because of an external circumstance, because there certainly still are all the external circumstances that are threatening the world that Einstein is concerned about. But like you said, it comes because I am being true to myself. I didn’t frame it that way, but it was about being so darn happy because I am true to myself. I live a life in which I strive to be. It changes your relationship to everything, good or bad, that’s happening outside of you.
Leslie: It really does. Oftentimes I can find myself getting caught up in what’s happening on the outside. Then I have to bring myself back into that space and ask, “What do I want here? I am reacting to something outside of myself. How will I deal with this?” I can either get into being wrapped up and caught up in all of that negativity outside of myself, or I can bring myself back into that space where I believe I can find the truth within me, the truth of reconnection, however I want to reconnect, to that which gives me joy.
Leslie: Oftentimes I’ll find myself reconnecting with nature, because nature always brings me back into a space of joy, whether it be taking a beautiful walk and enjoying the beautiful blooms and the trees and the flowers, listening to water lap up against a shore—whatever it is that can bring me back into that place where I can find peace and joy. That’s where I go. Then I cannot allow all of the stuff going on outside of myself to interfere with that joyful place. Sometimes it does take practice to get there.
Barbara: How would you define “joy”?
Leslie: Being at peace with wherever you are and whatever gets you that joy, whatever gives you happiness, whatever gives you that peace or tranquility. It’s an individual thing. Everyone has their own concept and belief about what joy is. For me, it’s a place where I find complete and utter elation, ecstasy, bliss. That’s what it is for me.
Barbara: Do you ever experience what I would metaphorically call “survivor’s guilt”? Not you personally as much as the question I have about being joyful. In the activist community, in which I was very, very engaged for several years, we had a saying. We were running ourselves ragged, making ourselves sick, trying to fight the rise of fascism within our government. It was exhausting and depleting and depressing. None of us got much sleep. The saying was, “Sleep is for those with rights.” I am still a bit conflicted. I have not found a place completely where I can say, “Oh, yes, I’m so happy to be finding my bliss,” as I know that other people are suffering.
Leslie: I understand what you’re talking about, because I am very empathetic as well as far as what’s going on in the world, all the things that most people call injustices. But the more that you find that you’re pushing against something, the more you’re saying, “This is not right, I have to fight,” it’ll just make it bigger and bigger rather than stepping away from it and saying, “It’s going to work out. It really is going to unfold.” Those who are interested in the fight, in bringing justice to the forefront, and I do applaud those who are doing what they believe is being true to themselves, for myself, I find that if I’m pushing against something, it puts you into a place where you’re not feeling very good about you or anything around you or what’s going on in the world. It all seems to unfair.
Leslie: How do I, a person living here on the planet who sees all this going on, accept that I don’t have to be a part of that which is fighting, but I can be the one who is being peace, living peace, trusting that if I live and breathe and know in my heart of hearts that if I feel that peace is the answer, if joy is the answer, if being happy, being full of all of those things that I know are at the core of each and every person on the planet, that if I can see that every person really is wanting to be in touch with that place of joy, with that place of peace, however they can come to terms with that and feel it and know that it is truly at the core of their being, that how ever they want to participate with life, it is their choice?
Leslie: For me, when I find myself getting caught up in any sort of politics or anything that I believe is an injustice, it depletes my energy and makes me feel alone and lost and angry. Those are things that I don’t want to allow into my being because I want to feel alive and happy. If I’m doing that, if I’m being true to myself, I have to reframe those things that I feel are injustices and know that in each individual at the core of the self, there is indeed that place of peace. So I have to say to myself, “To be peaceful I must live peace. To be joyful, I must live joy.” And so on.
Barbara: So you’re saying that it’s almost our duty—again metaphorically—if we want to influence the rest of the world, saying, the bombing in Syria, which was heartbreaking, and bombing anywhere breaks my heart, even though I have high metaphysical ideals, it’s hard for me to think, “Those people are choosing to have their children killed by chemical weapons.” But like you said, the bigger challenge of what my belief system is on a bigger scale means that it’s almost my duty to be that peace, to hold that peaceful space, to not buy into as horrible as I’m sure that experience is so that they can maybe have a chance that supports them spiritually or energetically much more than if I get into the fray and I’m judging. It doesn’t mean I can’t feel their pain or have empathy for them, but it’s much more powerful if we can stay in our peace and in our joy and hold that space and make our energetic space that way. That makes sense to me.
Barbara: I have a question I’m asking for my sister who isn’t here and didn’t ask me to ask it, but I wonder about—she lost her only son and only child to a brutal murder. I have been with her helping and we’ve been talking to him from beyond the grave and she’s been rebuilding her life. That was in 2012, so it’s been five years. Through that time she has questioned, “How do you find joy and happiness and meaning in life when something so terribly tragic takes place?”
Leslie: Indeed. And she through you she already knows that he is with her and he is now being more at peace than what he was when he was living on the earth plane. He is now more being peace and enjoying peace. There was a part of him that had a lot of confusion with life. He was a happy-go-lucky guy, but there was still some confusion as to how he wanted to participate in changing the world, changing his own reality. To change his reality, he did change it in a drastic way, and it brought a lot of attention to his being. In bringing that attention to who he is and who he continues to be now is much different than where he was before. Now he is a pioneer in a way of how he brought about lots of change within the whole family dynamic, people talking more, having open conversation about people being murdered, about the crimes.
Leslie: It brought a lot of attention also in a positive way where people can see that even through his experience of bring that attention and that spotlight on how he lived his life, it is indeed changing people along his path, even still, even now. There is lots more openness and communication than there was before. He is bringing lots of wonderful things to the forefront through that experience.
Barbara: It’s very, very true. Our entire family dynamic changed greatly to be much more loving and compassionate—not that we still don’t, we four sisters, have our squabbles. She has changed and is still changing. Again, it seems to get back to, it challenges our belief system of life, which is maybe why she was telling me a while back that she’s searching for the meaning of life. I kept thinking, isn’t it what we make it? Isn’t it what—we get to decide what our life means, so that’s very true. I’m excited about moving forward with hopefully more healing.
Barbara: In your book, you cover a lot of different topics. Tell us how you came to be a psychic channel.
Leslie: I remember at a very early age having very extreme dreams. Oftentimes I would wake up and wonder, “Who were the people in that dream? Why was it so intense? How does it affect who I am right now?” That started me on this search of reincarnation and Ruth Montgomery and Edgar Cayce. It snowballed from there. It opened up many doors and many things that felt that they were true to me. As I was doing my self-discovery work, I was sitting in a beautiful little hotel in Cocoa Beach, Florida, near the Cape, and Ken, my spiritual partner, and I were reading Ask and It Is Given by Esther Hicks. She translates for Abraham. Ken asked me, “What would you like to do? What is it you see yourself doing?” I said, “I really would enjoy getting this message out to more people, by allowing myself to translate for a collective consciousness.”
Leslie: Being near the Cape, I launched my own rocket of desire that day, in 2005. I started meditating and journaling more frequently. I got automatic writing, and in that writing, as we all know, we need labels for things, so I asked them, “Who am I speaking to?” They said to me, “We are Orion.” I really didn’t know anything about Orion except that it was a beautiful constellation and I always enjoyed looking at the constellations as a young child. They said they were Orion. Over time, I felt such peace. When they’re with me, as they are right now, they are always giving me love and peace. Whenever anyone has any sort of reading or a session with Orion, when they walk away, they always say, “They exude love and peace.” That, I think, is a part of who Leslie is, and Leslie and Orion are interconnected, of course, as everyone is interconnected with their soul selves.
Leslie: Everyone has the potential to connect and have that intuitive ability. It’s just a matter of paying attention, listening to your inner guidance, that intuition that is always with you. A lot of times we just poo-poo it. We say, “I’m not sure why I’m thinking this or why I should do this, but what the hell? I’m just going to do it.” I go with it. That’s paying attention. Oftentimes you’ll find yourself synchronized with things that you are thinking about and want an answer to, and suddenly it seemingly just appears, but it’s you being guided by your own intuition. I think everyone has that potential and the ability to do that.
Barbara: Do you find your channeling to be more seamless consciousness than trance channel? I feel like they’ve been talking through you all morning.
Leslie: They have, yes.
Barbara: (laughs) Not to call them out on their shenanigans, but there they are. As you were describing them, I’m seeing a circle of souls gathered around, and I literally saw stars in a circle, as if the heavens had come down to create this circle with stars and that love emanating from it. It’s a very peaceful, loving, supportive energy that you bring.
Barbara: Because you’ve been channeling in giving us these answers, could we ask Orion—the question I’d like to ask is, of course, global. You may have answered it. When Einstein was on his deathbed, he and Bertrand Russell were working on their last manifesto. It was all about a plea for nations to find new ways to resolve their conflicts other than fighting. I believe this work of mine, of ours, has sprung from that. As I look at days going by and North Korea threatening with thermonuclear war and crazy Donald Trump—and believe me, I don’t blame him, because this is a system of war that has been ingrained probably since this civilization has come forward—as we look forward, can they give us some advice about how to approach these very real possibilities?
Leslie: It is a difficult situation for most people to get a handle on how we can deal with all of the warmongering that is going on throughout the planet. How do I as an individual become more inner-directed and stay in a place where I believe that I live in a safe universe? If I’m believing that I’m living in a safe universe, that in my reality, in my realm of understanding of my reality, how do I express and live in a place where I can continue to live in peace and joy and harmony? That again comes down to living it, being it, trusting that as I live my life with those beliefs, if I can live the life of peace and harmony and continue with spreading that to each individual at a time, whether it be just being in a store, smiling at someone, having a short conversation with someone, that person then goes to another person, they’re in a better place, feeling a little bit better about themselves, feeling a little kick in their heart, feeling that, “Life isn’t so bad. Life isn’t horrible.” That continues to snowball like the ripples in a pond. As you throw a stone into the pond, the ripples continue to grow and expand. So do love, joy, happiness. It has to start with each individual.
Leslie: If I’m going to live my life that way, I must believe that me being here on the planet at this time must mean something. If that means something to me, what do I want it to mean to me? What we want to share with everyone is that it starts with the individual. As it starts with the individual, it continues to grow and expand. It influences the world as a whole. The more of you who are with this teaching, with this belief that I as a human being on the planet right now, living my life, how do I want to live it? How do I want to express myself as this being right now?
Leslie: Being here, right now, all of you listening in as well, how do you want to express yourselves? How do you want to live your life? In fear? In a place where you’re allowing outside circumstances to interfere with your peace of mind? You can do that, if that gets you what makes you feel good. But we believe that there are more of you out there who want to see the world as coming together as a world that believes in diversity, that believes that there is indeed a powerful place where we can all join our hands and circle around and know that as we continue to grow and expand with our love and the acceptance of all, it does indeed conquer those things that feel like they are invading our peace.
Leslie: So rather than pushing and fighting, we see that it’s our expression and our wanting for all of you to be the best that you can be and to allow yourselves to continue with expressing and enjoying one another and enjoying each and every individual as an individual and knowing that in that individuality there are differences, and that is what makes the world go around. It’s all of everyone being an individual and allowing them to have their individuality and to not fight and to not argue, but to be understanding and really wanting to understand how other individuals see their lives, and to allow them to live it the way they want to. It doesn’t mean it has to interfere with the well-being of yourself.
Barbara: As you were talking, Orion, much like my nephew’s murder, I would not wish that kind of suffering on any human. I would not wish the suffering of North Korea dropping an atomic bomb on anyone. However, because it did happen, because he was murdered, as you so accurately described, love came from it. We could be—and I don’t speak for my sister, but anyone in that situation could be very resentful for the rest of one’s life for having your child taken from you. Is it possible that that’s similar to the macrocosm of all of these terrifying threats and possibilities that are pushing us more into understanding how important it is to love one another?
Leslie: Yes, indeed. That is why it is happening right now on the planet: for everyone to get that there are differences and there are many things that are going on outside of yourself that seem to be troubling and disturbing. But it doesn’t have to interfere with my own well-being. How do I continue with loving and living life when all of this destruction and war and hatred go on outside of myself? That is, again, bringing yourself back into, “What do I want? How do I want to see my reality? What is my pool looking like, my ripples of my life? How are they spreading out? What do I see those ripples? Where do I see those ripples going?” As you see the ripples of your life spreading forward, how do you want that to be? Love, self-acceptance, nurturing of self. There are so many people who are in need of nurturing, of self-nurturing, self-love, and nurturing each other. It is something that has been missing from quite some time in many people’s lives. Now more than ever, it’s important for you all to be more understanding and more nurturing and loving.
Barbara: Yes. I’m getting inspired by this conversation, because having been through deep activism and giving up my life for this resistance of a cause and then stepping back into this new service, for me, not that my channeling or my work is new, but I realized that what we’re doing, you and I and all of us who are practicing Conflict REVOLUTION and Cassandra bringing these ideas into her practice as a doctor and Debbie bringing them to the children, that these ripples you’re talking about extend very far. I thank you for those answers, because it reaffirms and says in a new way to me that we can only do so much in a day. I don’t mean to limit our energy, but it’s true. I can’t stop what happens in North Korea by going directly at it. I couldn’t stop what was happening in the Wisconsin legislature by going directly at it. Once I backed off and started to do all those things that you were talking about—self-nurturing, self-love, detaching from the struggle—then things started to manifest differently, in individuals coming together, not institutions.
Barbara: So while we couldn’t, for example, stop the mining bill, we could inspire thousands and thousands of people who live in our area to start to stand up and voice and make a difference and stand up for the water. It was quite a learning experience. I’m very grateful for you coming this morning and sharing your talents and your gifts and this information. I’m jazzed now to get out in the day! I’m going to go to the grocery store and be nice to people! (laughs) It sounds so silly, but it’s so fulfilling, to be kind and gentle.
Leslie: And thank you so much. It’s been a pleasure to be with you. We look forward to meeting up with you in the grocery store today.
Barbara: (laughs) And I’m excited, because I’ve asked your spiritual partner Ken to come on next month and talk about the blessings of autism and Alzheimer’s, the gifts, his book, and explore how your work and mine interface with people who are dealing with these kinds of amazing conditions in their physical bodies. But before we go, hold on, I see Debbie has a question.
Debbie: I don’t have a question, I just wanted to reiterate how inspirational and freeing you’ve been. Thank you for sharing your message so beautifully of being peace, being what we want to see outside of ourselves. That’s a huge message for us to have in our hearts. I want to thank you. And thank you, Barbara, you, too, are always an inspiration.
Barbara: Oh, thank you, Debbie, you, too! Debbie has worked very hard on Conflict REVOLUTION and was in fact a coach to me through some of my hardest times. I’m always grateful to see you here. Everyone else, thank you so much. We will be posting this on the website within the week and sharing it with you. So please have a nice day. And all you’ll have to do is watch and be amazed. Namaste.
