Barbara: Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, whomever, wherever, whenever. Today is Monday, December 31, 2018. We’ve come together to have a look back on 2018, as well as turning to have a gaze into the future of 2019.

As we all can imagine, we’re gathered here with Don and Donna who are in Sedona, Cathy is in Ohio, Robin and Tracy are in Portland, and I’m in Lake superior on Madeline Island. Cassandra I imagine is in Duluth, Minnesota. She’s just joined us.

We’re gathered here knowing what the real agenda is with the Party and why we get together. This has always been about people who really want to go into their own lives and gain control of what is theirs to be in control of—what is yours, what is mine to be in control of. It’s not for everybody, but I see the remarkable effects that it has on lives.

I’m humbled as I personally look back on 2018, very humbled what all of this work that Einstein and the Party, through the many years and the actual practical application of the teachings, has resulted in (for me personally): a really remarkable operating system. I’m so humbled and awed, and most the time I don’t even know what to say about the whole thing.

Today we’re going to look back in a way that I think is always rooted in the present, always rooted in the operating system, always rooted in helping us understand what our bigger domain is all about. They’re always true to their mission.

There will be time for questions and answers and more practical things, but I just want to start out by sharing with you an experience that I had in the past couple of weeks. I live on this little island and we have this little church. It’s a United Church of Christ, St. John’s, and our lovely Pastor Marina Lachecki retired this year in September. I just learned that her husband just passed away today. He was in hospice, so it wasn’t unexpected, but thinking of her today and sending her all kinds of love and him too, and including him in the circle of souls.

St. John’s bell rope

We have a new pastor coming but they needed people to fill in. I volunteered. I like to do that kind of thing, I think I can do it OK. So I had a chance to channel Jesus in a way that was really startlingly awakening for me.

I grew up EUB: Olivet Evangelical United Brethren, whatever that was. I separated from the church and haven’t read the Bible much. So when I volunteered, there were Bible verses that came with the service, spinning into the Christian service.

I was happy to read them and as I did, I saw this relationship to Jesus in this whole new way, partly because my relationship to Jesus has been through the Party. I certainly recognized his greatness, but it hasn’t been is if I was looking at it through Christian eyes, through that filter of heralding his birth (for good reason [were they heralding his birth])!

I started to think about Mary. The Bible verse was all about how Mary went up into the hills to see her cousin Elizabeth. Elizabeth was at the time six months pregnant with John the Baptist, he would become John the Baptist. Mary, as soon as she walked through the door and Elizabeth saw her, her baby jumped in the womb because Mary was also pregnant with Jesus at that time. That was what the Bible verse was about.

I started to think about Mary being, as scholars say, 12 or 13 years old. So here’s a 12- or 13-year-old being visited by an angel, and not just any angel, but Gabriel. Now I know how this feels. I started to relate to how, first of all, how terrified she must have been. And not just that, but Gabriel tells her, you’re going to have baby. Oh, and it’s going to be conceived by the Holy Spirit, and your son’s going to be called the son of God. You know, this is crazy—a 12-year-old! That would terrify me as a 12-year-old! So she goes up to see Elizabeth and gets some sort of validation for this event.

Being wrapped up in the story and being in Jesus’ milieu, shall we say—I don’t go to church myself, I don’t do this much—but participating again in the ceremony of my local church, I got in touch with Jesus in an entirely new way. Part of it is a confirmation of what we’re doing here: that all of us are trying to become that change to do more than he did, which is what he said when he was here. He was demonstrating how you never leave compassion. It doesn’t matter if he was up against the devil, or Pontius Pilot, or being crucified, or betrayed by his own people: he never stepped away from compassion. Whatever he said—and there’s not a lot of record—there’s a lot of record of what people thought he said, but there’s no record of what he said. It was his demonstration in the scope of his life that was the power of what he did and inspiration for all of us to do that.

Seeing that as a piece of the Party, as a piece of this Einsteinian plan to pass on this worldview that supports Christianity, it supports Buddhism, it supports everything—it’s just supportive of everything. But to see that piece was really, really profound for me this year.

So as I looked back on my own 2018 and losing my mother, and the whole transformation that that depth has brought, it’s like no other year for me. I have to think that I’m not really different than anybody else. We’ve all been through such great transformational events in our lives and we’ve come to this place now of turning and facing into a new era. We’re the leaders of our own lives. Having the Party to be able guide us into that vision, and how to practically implement that vision, is such a great honor. I’m humbled again by all of this and my relationship to it.

I wanted to share just a little bit today about my communication with my mother and my father since my mother died. I haven’t really been able to talk about it, and nor should I have to. I feel like I want to share a little bit of it.

Dad and Mom, New Year’s Eve 1957 at a Party in their living room.

It’s so amazing to me. It’s different then I anticipated. It was much more traumatic than I imagined it would be. Communicating with her through it, and watching her and my father, who is here, too, very much present, work through what happens after you die and you get back together with those family members in the non-physical who you just shared a life with, to regroup and re-communicate and see, analyze, just what we all do with this information about our lives. I watched my parents grow together. I’ve watched their growth in Afterlife be able to affect me, as if it were real. And you know the funny thing about that … but to have a new relationship with these parents who took responsibility in Afterlife and want to progress, want to continue in this deep love of growth. And that’s what we’re doing here.

For me in 2018, that’s been the most profound: looking back on it and getting to the present for me. I’m very excited about seeing what 2019 brings, but I think the gazing ahead is going to be a lot about fortifying our own relationship to this Jesus part of us, for lack of a better word, as we move forward. But I’m going to let the Party talk about that.

The Party

We command that only the most divine light shine down upon us at this time and the greatest good be present here.

Let’s start out, take some deep breaths, all of us connect just relax. Put aside these thoughts of the world and turn inward. Turn inward to this energy we are always gathering to examine and be a conscious part of.

[BREATHE]

With every breath that you take in, imagine if you would right in front of you there is a cloud of smoke. Don’t be afraid to draw this smoky substance into your breath and let it fill up your body and then as you exhale, channel all of that right straight through the heart. See the heart center as being so powerful that it is transforming all of that dark, smoky, murky separated thinking into an expression of the greatest good, of the great love, of the highest love that there.

Not only do you make decisions for the good of the whole, you make decisions for your own greatest good. You can’t have one without the other. That kind of energy plays off itself. You know how that is when you are in a very creative mode and you meet up with someone else who is in a creative mode, it’s almost brainstorming that goes on. It’s an exercising of creative energy that stimulates manifestation. It opens up possibilities.

Rest assured that all possibilities cannot take place. There’s going to be a set of probabilities based on some mathematical proportions, and then some other predicting factors of maybe habits in the past (how many times did you say you would do this and how many times did you actually do it), that kind of calculating of patterns and such, like the guts of a computer calculating things.

But this movement forward from here has you at the controls of what’s happening on this inside, internal world as the most important place for you to be, whether it’s looking at the past or gazing into the future. Your inner decision-making process that’s in place: if you have a decision-making process in place that’s constantly in the collective way, considering what’s best for the good of the whole, it starts with your own well-being. Not out of selfish, but it’s the way the pattern plays: it’s coming out of you and into the world. If your well-being is solid, you realize that you are not here necessary to manifest a particular outcome, but you’re here to become fluid with what is being thrown at you.

You’re here to be so aware of that decision-making process in yourself on such a microscopic level and so committed to doing what’s best for the good of the whole, by doing so, the passion is there. The passion to be the change in this collective world is there.

As you become the change and you live that passion, there is a kind of a relaxation in your relationship to yourself. You don’t have to work so hard at that.

One of the things that we saw happening in 2018 for all of you is that you started to get clearer on a part of the operating system that makes a big difference in outcomes. The difference is, when is it time to work harder? Because there are times in a process, in a pattern, in a manifestation, {when you say], “Oh yeah, I have to work a little bit harder.” You’re getting your PhD so you know you have to go through a time where you have to work a little bit harder.

Or, when is it time to employ a different process? And knowing the difference in present moment is a big clue to making your life easier, healthier, more in the flow. Because you know full well that if you are in a time where you should be doing something different, but you think you should work harder at what you are doing, then you’re going to work five times as hard and still not get anywhere. Because what the moment is calling for is to do a different process, not do the same process more intensely or more focused.

In the same vein, if it’s time to work harder at something, going to do a different process might just be an escape from doing that harder work that’s needed at that time.

Understanding this difference has been a good part 2018’s lessons, if you get down to it. Think about that and how it relates to relationships, your job, or your work or making money. One of the challenges in this is the value of making money. There are times where it’s more valuable for you rest. If you have to choose in a moment, how are your values laid out? Your body has one value in that moment. It would want to rest if intuition was saying it. But your intellect might be creating another story about what’s more valuable. “That’s all well and good, but I need to pay the rent so I have to not rest as I go to work.”

These conflicts that go on in your own self go on all day long. We guarantee that if you could tune in 24/7—and you know the funny thing about that—you would hear so many of your own conflicts and recognize them as such. This idea of knowing if it’s time to change process or is it time to work harder, take that into 2019. Then pair it with the passion for the greatest good. It will elevate everything to a new level of functionality.

We feel that the product of the synchronicity that we are trying to inspire you to create is measurable and it becomes living a life that way, to where you don’t have to live by anything other than synchronicity and intuition. You’re getting so detached from those outcomes, you’re rearranging your values of yourself. What part of yourself values money more than your health? Those are hard looks to take at self, but the best, the most productive, the most regenerative because now you’re getting into those areas that are hard to access, which come from traumas, past traumas.

That comes from being people who feel deeply. All of you who are listening to this feel deeply and aren’t afraid to say it and be it. These changes that you’re going through are helping on a DNA level of the collective human consciousness. We want to encourage you to keep going with that.

When we look at the global 2018, we see the same chaos that you do. We see a lot more diversity though, in what’s going on on the planet because we can see the whole planet; you can only see pieces that you hear on social media, or media, or read in the newspaper or somehow find out about, which is easy to do in the world today.

But that’s still not everything, but any stretch of the imagination. There’s so much going in the world that no one ever hears about and never gets framed in a political way or broadcast, it just goes on. So we see more areas of growth and change towards what you’re working for than you do, probably.

Everything is always chaotic when you’re going through a complete transformation. You’re tearing everything down to its root and starting over with a more accurate and authentic creation. One that’s based upon hopefully what we’re espousing, and what you say you want to do, which is to build a culture and a world that reflects the Eden that it’s meant to be: Earth as Mother, as provider.

But human consciousness has this genetic piece of free will that makes you different than, say, the trees. Think about the trees, them as one sentient being, connected all across the world. There is a response system. For example, if there’s an infestation of bugs, the trees will respond by providing and creating their own bug repellant. But there isn’t thinking through of things and deciding on the destruction of other humans or other resources, for what reason? Profit of money. Humans share this ability, but not with the trees. It doesn’t mean the trees don’t sense and understand and pick up and communicate, but it’s the difference of what Human Intention has brought to this grand experiment of evolution.

You have come here to be that. You have to accept your potential for all sides, which is why the Party is represented also by the dark side. The dark of humanity, the potential that every human has within them to do good or to do evil (to make decisions for the benefit of the few at the expense of the many).

You take control of that within yourself. And that’s all that you can do. And that was what Jesus wanted to tell you. If you think about his life in the short term—the 33 years that he walked as Jesus of Nazareth who became the Son of God who was remembered for centuries—if you think what he did, how many people he reached, certainly not many, compared to how many people you can reach in the world today in person.

Really, his teachings were only recorded for three or four years of that life. When he said, “You can do what I did and more,” he was really being very literal. Not that you can be the king of the universe [like him], unless it’s the king of your own universe. But you can do this in your life. Just like he did. More than he did. You’re in a time where you understand so much more of all this. He really wanted you to know that power and the responsibility that you have for that power.

Going into 2019, that’s really the theme, knowing that power within yourself, owning it, working it, going even deeper into the energy that is you and taking responsibility with passion and wanting to work for the good of all. It’s exciting to realize that it doesn’t matter what happens, what you come up against. It doesn’t matter if you come up against the devil, or Pontius Pilate, or that you’re crucified or that your friends turn on you. It doesn’t matter. That’s not the point.

As you embrace this lesson in a whole new way in your lives, you’re going to find surrender: surrender to life and death, surrender to the greater good and the longer view. A love of self just exactly as you are right now, as a human with whatever kinds of challenges in your life, or however many lives that you’re aware of surging through your body, or if you think you’re winning or losing, living or dying, rising or falling. The very act of creating human life is so magnificent. It is the God itself. There should be speechlessness at your small humble part in it.

And yet, like standing up for your cause, for yourself, for your right, you’re going to take your own mission on as seriously as Jesus took his mission. As seriously as Mary took her mission. Even though you’re not going to have that same kind of fate, it doesn’t matter.

When you get into the beginning of 2019, we see a lot of surges of creativity for all of you on so many levels. If you want to accelerate that, then take a very clear look at the people who you have in your life. Whether it’s the actual family or your friends, or the people you work with, everyone. Take a look at everyone you have in your life. Try to find those places where you’re trying harder and harder but nothing is going on. Nothing is changing. Maybe it’s time to do something else.

Look at them also in terms of is there something you could do just a little bit? Could you try just a little harder with this person or that person? Could you try just one more time in just a different way?

Think in terms of that when you’re approaching situations that you have questions about, circumstances of your life and what you need to do. We’re trying to help you build a system inside yourself that is so self-contained and operating so exacting to take care of you, that you never have any doubt again about your life because that operating system is in place.

Our view of 2019 is that this kind of explodes. What you’re going to have challenges in (and maybe you already do) is reconciling what you see going on around you in the world—in the social world, in the news world, in the world and what’s really going on, things that you experience that are part of this chaos, this craziness.

How to balance that with this eternal part of self that knows it’s here for a temporary visit as Don and Donna, Cassandra, and everyone else, just having a temporary experience together. Because of this openness that you’re going to have and you’re going to see in the world, then you get to influence the manifestation.

As you do a conflict in the family, as you approach it differently. Maybe you really feel like you don’t want to, but maybe it is time to try just one more time. Or else you really get to the point where you say, “I can’t do this anymore. I have to go do this in order to take care of myself—do something different.” Either one of those.

This frees up your energy, if you can be OK with that alone time, that absence of whatever that thing was that was eating up your energy in a way that wasn’t regenerative. It frees that up.

This year of 2019 has an opportunity for everyone to take a break from all the crazy insanity that you feel is sometimes being rained upon you. More and more people are going to find a way—not ignore it, not pretend it’s not happening—but to work hard to make sure that you’re doing what’s good for the whole. You’ll know. Sometimes you’re called to go stand up with people. Sometimes you’re called to help a family friend. Sometimes you’re called to fill in, sometimes to a spontaneous need, to help somebody with their groceries. There are all kinds of ways that you get called to be of service to the world in small practical ways. When you make that a priority in your life, you’re is basically doing what’s good for the whole, being in service to people, to the whole, in whatever way that is.

Even if it is just in your prayers, in your mantras, in the way that you channel your compassion and the responsibility that you take for yourself, that you are going to have that. Even if that’s all it is and you never go out and feed the poor or what have you, that’s the core of who you should be. You’ll find great connection and purpose if you then go above and beyond, and go out and find where the world needs you. Go find it, don’t just sit there and let it come to you. Go find it, whatever it is. Think creatively, outside the box.

This goes out to those of you who might be looking for work. There an attitude of being outside the box. There is a willingness to go into that brainstorming. There is a willingness to live in that chaos in the beginning, when you don’t know. You have no idea yet. But if you can adopt that attitude of discovery, knowing that your [operating] system is set. You’re going in there and you are going to find more than enough ways to help be the change, to help the evolution of human consciousness.

We are here with you every step of the way. More and more, the Party grows. Again, next year don’t be surprised if you are developing your own relationships directly to family members, people who have passed on, us the Party, that these openings that you’re making inside yourselves, applying this love, letting love move through you turns you into these very intuitive selves. Once you put intuition into imagination, then you get the hand of God working through your human mind in a beautiful way.

For those of you who are naturally overly intellectual—Honor and Articulations who are very, very intellect-oriented—2019 is going to be a bigger flop over the compassion, to the emotion. And vice versa: those of you who have been so traditionally emotionally oriented—where sometimes you don’t know what to do because you can see all sides of things—you’re going to find yourself much more rooted into a reasoning, intellectual viewpoint, to begin to challenge yourself to get out of that trap.

Like when you’re very caring for someone, they could have done a horrible thing to you and hurt you, but in that moment you can still feel this compassion for them because you can see where their pain came from. That’s all well and good, but in wanting to do what’s good for everyone, there is something more that you can do [for yourself], not letting yourself be hurt in those ways. Not being in that space where someone may do that do you, without having to exert hate, or punishment, or any kind of interaction in that way.

These changes, this flip-flopping and the ability that Intellect is going to give those people of Compassion to be able to make decisions for the good of the whole and take and act on them and feel the confidence of tough love. Sometimes it’s tough love, it just is. But tough love feels good in the longer run, and that’s also going to be what you see in yourself, the changes that have come through this long run of you working to be this greater person.

In between last year and next year, we want right now for everyone to look at your life and acknowledge the enormous amount of growth and life that you’ve lived. Acknowledge your talents and your gifts. Acknowledge your abilities. Acknowledge your power just in being human. As you acknowledge, it brings it to life—you come to life in this way.

In 2019, again, you will be dealing with people in your lives leaving the planet. The more that you can use 2019 to be another step into freeing yourself from the old view of what humanity is—that the physical world is the primary world and the non-physical world maybe doesn’t even exist. This changes to that the non-physical world is 90% of the entire operating system and the physical is really only 10%. Being able to obtain this knowledge in this life, like you’re doing, putting it into practice in these practical ways and then reaching your death point (which you all will) is another step in the transformation, an exciting opportunity that’s come, not the end. Not a loss, but part of the process that you’ve been through, trust us, 100 times before.

With that awareness this is a big step, a big time. We’ve talked about in Paris and we’ll talk about it again next year, that we’re very excited about it. It’s breathtaking to see it. You don’t get to see it in this way yet. You still have the cares and the worries of 2019 and what’s happening on the surface of the planet in your universe. All the more reason for you all to commit to making your own universe as highly evolved as you can. Be like Jesus. Don’t let anything throw you off your compassion. And certainly not your own inner trauma. In fact, let that inspire you to take the time to let it guide you into what that loving change needs to be in order to flow and release the trauma and replace it with a new passion that’s tied to working for the good of all.

Then every particle of your being is vibrating with this unique DNA that’s driving you from that deep level through your intuition, to be a regenerative, self-healing, love-reacting human being. Like the waters and the trees that connect all over the world, of course you as humans connect all over the world. And you’re everything. You’re part tree and your part water. You’re part human and you’re part spirit. You’re part earth and you’re part sky. You are the center of your universe. And when you die, your universe will die with you—that perception. But of course the mathematical equations that were formulated through those actions will live on—thoughts, feelings, senses, memories, the holographic memory of what your body was like, all stored up.

Not in 2019, but sometime in the near future, there’ll be more understanding of what that kind of time travel is. In the meantime, you’re the scientists in that field of how far your power will take to you, to what kind of greatest good can you help facilitate, greater than Jesus even did. It’s an exciting time to be a live and to be part of this movement.

By the time you get to the end of 2019, what we see is a much stronger base solidification of your place in your universe, understanding that whatever is coming, you’re here to be here. You’re here to adapt and adopt and put that energy forward, to create the greatest good, wherever you go, which will be needed. What a great thing to be needed.

As you love, so you will be loved. There is a time of great inner abundance that is blooming right now. We’re excited for each and every one of you.

We are going to then close the channel by saying a few things.

Being who you are, here with us today willing to take this exploratory journey, it opens up a part of you deeper than most. Take that into consideration in building your relationship to yourself. Build it into your life considerations. Things as simple as, if your intuition is really telling you not to go out, then don’t go out. Rest. As simple as that.

You don’t know the needed impact of that rest upon the many layers. You get so caught up in this life, that you’re not aware of the many layers and how they relate to everything else. Imagine trying to follow the roots of the trees, how they all interconnect. It’s hard for your human mind. It wants to know those things.

Take the time to embrace that in yourself. The truth is, it’s every human. You’re just lucky enough to be able to have these esoteric conversations that get you thinking in completely new directions sometimes that can make all the difference in how you manifest.

Watch and see in 2019 as more and more of what you believe and what you have been studying becomes validated and confirmed in the culture around you. All the more conversations you’re going to hear about the non-physical, about the relationship between thoughts, feelings, senses, Intellect, Intuition and Emotion. You’re going to hear from some really surprising sources. Look for information in odd places. Don’t just take what social media runs by you, or your newspaper puts on the headline. Search and see if you can find, for example, new research on regeneration and growing back organs and limbs. It may not be that your commercial media is going to tell you that, but there might be ways to follow other lines of information about it.

Look for those stories, those things that are happening, especially in your community that you live in, with the people. Get more connected face to face with people. You don’t have to spend great deals of time if you don’t want to, but get connected and reach out in a particular way. It’s going to be necessary in the years ahead to be with community in that way. How each of you build that will be up to you.

Mostly watch and see your own changes. Acknowledge them. Celebrate them. Then you will only need to watch and be amazed.

Namaste

End of the Year Channel: Where Are We Headed Now?

Monday December 31, 2018

10 AM CST
1-857-232-0476
Code 866255

Join us for one last channel for 2018, as Einstein and the Party take a look at 2018 and where it had taken us, and gaze into 2019 to see where in the world we might be headed next year.

Always informative, inspiring and insightful, the Party sends you their best wishes for the New Year!

Living and Dying

While I was in Paris this fall, we conducted two conversations with the Party, specifically to talk about life and death.

Mom’s 96th Birthday

These came at my request. After my mother passed in April, suddenly everyone started losing loved ones—mothers, grandmothers, fathers, children, sisters. It felt like a lot of people were dying. Maybe I just noticed more because I was so tender, but everyone else’s loss was hard, too. I needed some practical information to quiet my human mind and ease my human heart.

One thing they said in the reading that struck me was that some souls choose not to reincarnate as a human. We can, apparently, “homogenize” our energy (blend diverse elements into a mixture that is the same throughout). They referenced people who, after they die, decide to “homogenize” into being a tree and stay in that state for 5,000 years.

When I heard that, I thought to myself, “Where in the world are there trees over 5,000 years old, and what would it feel like to be a tree?” Questions I would have asked had I not been the channel.

As it were, they did answer my questions, later, proving again why they are always telling us to “watch and be amazed.”

* * *

Back in the states, I made the most of my jet lag by leaving Minneapolis at 3 AM, in time to catch the 7:30 AM ferry. As I entered the last, dark hour of the long trip home, the sun was rising into a welcoming glow in the east and on the radio came a story about trees.

Listening to this fascinating pre-dawn report was an awakening. I was gratified to hear the interviewer say it affected him in the same way: once you know this scientific data about trees, you see them in an entirely new way. It’s as if you learn you have a family that you never knew you had and then finally meet for the first time, only to learn they’ve lived in your neighborhood your whole life.

That report speaks of a tree in Norway that is over 9,000 years old, and that trees are far more intelligent than we realize. They share resources, respond to the environment, communicate between species, and bequeath their wealth to other trees before they die. Listening to this story, I watched and, once again, was amazed.

I recommend listening to the tree report before reading this transcript. Particularly the Suzanne Simard  and Richard Powers segments. Their description of the connections that trees have correlates with what the Party describes later in the reading: that all humans are part of a much larger organism; we are far more like trees than we realize.

The rest of the reading includes a reiteration of Einstein’s vision of human consciousness, as well as information on how to communicate with those who have passed. I’ve included a link to the Map of Human Consciousness and the Unified Field. I recommend you pull it up for reference as you read. It’s really not as complex as it seems. Kind of like football. Once you know how the game is played, you can understand what’s going on.

Join us Monday, December 31, 2018 10 AM Central for another free channel with the Party. Einstein will be reviewing 2018 and ringing in the coming year.  All are welcome!

Happy holiday!

 

 

 

My Backyard  … They’ve been here all along …

 

Map of Human Consciousness and Unified Field Here

 

I edited the following from transcripts of two sessions conducted on November 23 and December 3, 2018 in Paris, France.

We command that only the most divine light to shine down upon us at this time, and the greatest good be present here.

We as the Party, guided by Einstein, are ready to make the next step in the evolution of human consciousness. It’s very exciting! We are growing and changing, too.

You can’t imagine the amount of energy it takes to create one human life. Talk about a Big Bang! You can’t have a human life without also creating the universe in which that life will live. The Lens becomes your experience of the physical world. The Lens is your universe.

The eternal part of you is a string that is spinning at the speed of light squared (C2)—starting in the Source (the center of the planet), moving up through the Earth, breaking out into the atmosphere, continuing on into the heavens and then flowing back up through the North Pole and into the center of the planet, to begin again. That spinning string carries all the mathematics that create you and your universe. The Human Intention—the Source, Observer and Lens—slows that string down to the speed of light and separates the energy so that the objects of the physical world can be perceived, including your body. When your DNA spacetime body is born in the Lens, your human life can begin.

When your body dies, so does the Lens and the physical world. However, those non-physical elements continue—thoughts, feelings, senses, memories, knowledge, experience—spinning again at C2. It’s a different kind of identity without the Lens, one that we cannot fully explain to you at this moment. Not because you are stupid, but how would you tell your children exactly what it’s like to hold a job and have a family? We just can’t explain it fully.

Humans often fear death. It’s a natural reaction. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. The death of your body comes with an entire array of emotions that play out as a result of being human.

We just see this conversation of life and death differently. A human part of you is going to die, there is no denying that. In the big picture, however, the Lens of your human body is about 10% of the whole operating system. When that goes, yes, it’s gone, but the rest of the operating system is still there.

Our mission has always been to inspire those who still have a body to become accustomed to the non-physical part of you that exists in this place of Afterlife, even as we speak. That way, when the 10% that’s your physical body disappears, you’ll be well rooted in the comfort of the eternal part of yourself. You can be without your body, but that core creation can’t be uncreated.

And why incarnate? In order for humans to survive, you must evolve into beings that are aware of their need to take care of the whole. When you acknowledge that you are one part of many parts of one whole, compassion takes over. This changes the DNA of humanity on a collective genetic level. Your DNA becomes naturally pre-disposed to work collectively, thus increasing the odds for survival.

This is what you have come here to do: learn to love. You learn how to love by having relationships. Those relationships are meant to be springboards for evolving your ability to work for the good of all. We hope we can inspire you, while you still have your physical bodies, to make the most of this opportunity to learn from your relationships.

Some souls don’t come back as humans. Some choose to homogenize into the bigger energy, say, to live in a tree for 5,000 years. When you live as a part of the organism of a tree, there are entirely different universes to discover and explore.

Jesus had one of the few deaths where all of his human emotions were vibrating at such a highly evolved state that they formed a unified field of power. There was no anger or sadness or betrayal or joy. All the emotions unified to become pure compassion, which he channeled into forgiveness. By doing so, he helped change the DNA of the human species.

But this understanding takes time. That’s why you’re here as humans, experiencing many lives, traveling a long journey. Say you were to walk from the bottom of Africa to the top of Scandinavia. You’d meet hundred of kinds of people. You’d see different terrain, climates, cultures, and foods. But in the end, you would see that those people are just people, living on the Earth. Yes, there are differences: skin color, language, money, and such. But everybody is just a human and everyone will die. You will all lose your grandmothers, mothers, fathers, sisters, and eventually you will all die. This fascinating and complex journey of being human is a part of the evolutionary process of the human species.

Your Life
You come into your life with agreements about generalized conditions. You have free will to maneuver through those conditions, but definite structures are created. One of those structures is your family. You’re born into a family with souls who have worked together in other lives, coming together again to continue that work to learn to love one another. “OK, let’s go at this from this direction. This time, let’s give ourselves a challenge to [fill in the blank]. Here’s what I need to work on. What about you?” You make agreements with each other in the non-physical that will then give your relationships structure in the physical.

However, once you are born into the physical world, you forget immediately that you made these agreements. You forget who you are and where you just came from. You forget your mission and sometimes forget how to love.

You proceed to live your life with people to whom you have this deep, unremembered connection. For the most part, you have no idea that you’ve shared other lives, been in other families, in other times, in other cultures. All you know is the relationship you have with them in this life.

But these relationships reveal conflicts. This is what reincarnating is all about: repeatedly coming into these pre-planned configurations in order to remember who you really are and resolve these conflicts caused by the forgetful, limited perspective of your human minds. You are more than just Barbara and Heike and Donna and Cathy and Sonia. You are all connected on deeper levels that span lifetimes, and you are here to remember, to help the species survive and thrive.

You have a chance to projectile into this life to be a do-gooder, to be someone who helps the whole world evolve by evolving oneself. If you are committed to being one of those conscious beings that pushes this mission of love forward, it’s inevitable. We are so excited for all of you who have a human life in order to do this.

Either way, one by one, your bodies will die and your focus will return to this Party with us. Here you’ll be excited to share the lessons you learned from this incredible opportunity to have a human life—the highs and lows, the drama and calm, the illness and joy and death and birth and everything. With each life you live with this mission to love, you help to advance the collective goal to evolve the entire human species.

Your mission is not over when you die. It just enters a different phase. The quality and condition of your death will be dependent upon the quality and condition of your life.  More than ever we urge you to live your lives to the deepest passion and the highest good. Everything that comes from that is art: your children and grandchildren are art, your art and music are art, your work of helping people is art. Being human becomes the art. In fact, all physical reality is the art because it’s all the creation and the expression of your universe, perfect in all its imperfection. Life itself is a miracle.

Talking to Those Who Have Passed: The Imagination
Every human has the sensory equipment to communicate with the non-physical part of someone who used to have a body. It doesn’t mean everyone will use it. But making death practical includes understanding that this kind of communication is not only possible, but learning to have a living relationship with those who have passed on is part of evolution.

It doesn’t mean that there isn’t grief upon the loss of a friend or family member. Grief is natural and should be expected, part of that deep human passion to love. As sad as death is, however, it’s also about a much more profound joy found in eternal love and deep passion.

After someone dies, you can re-establish real-time communication with them in their non-physical form. It’s not just Barbara thinking about her mother. It’s her mother’s energy: her intelligence with thoughts, feelings, senses, memories, actually responding, Her mother’s identity is surging in the non-physical, near and with Barbara, allowing communication to take place. Every human has this capacity, in the same way that every human has intuition. Acceptance of the practical nature of this form of communication is the first step to using it.

So where do you meet that person that you love? In the imagination.

Imagination is a condition of Intellectual energy. Intellect has it’s own function and form and serves a specific purpose, defining and shaping energy that is otherwise amorphous. Imagination is a ripe patch of the Intellect where energies intersects. In that intersection comes the ability to then exchange information and communicate.

How you experience the communication is very specific to you. Barbara will see her mother and hear her voice in a specific way. If her sister were to communicate with her mother, she might see her in a different way, perhaps at a different age, or in a dream as opposed to direct contact.

Because of imagination, you have access to all sorts of resources, as you can also intersect with universal knowledge, with other people’s thoughts, with the entire great Gestalt. That’s what you tap into with imagination.

Sometimes souls, however, are otherwise engaged and won’t be available for communication. But for the most part, those who love you are going to be near you. Your mothers are all near you—you know that. Anyone who is in your family group and has passed on is waiting for you.

Sometimes human emotion will get in the way of talking to that person that you miss and love. Sometimes you long so much to talk with them, but there is such a deep sorrow, it actually prevents you from doing so. Just keep experimenting. Listen. Make notes. Write down what you experience. Remember that person. Use your imagination. Most people don’t exercise it enough. Use it.

Welcome Home
One of the best parts of a human losing their physical body is the joy that takes place upon leaving the sorrowful and sometimes suffering earth plane and reuniting with so much love. Death is a very complicated process. The more that you can conceptualize energy and life and death in these ways, the more you won’t fear death while you are alive.

The more you can develop living relationships with those who have passed on, the more you increase the quality of your life. Remember the bigger picture, that there is part of you in the non-physical right now with us, having this miraculous conversation, privy to Afterlife.

You don’t yet fully understand the miraculous, evolutionary nature of what we are doing here today. But we know all of you feel this truth resonating in your bodies, bringing you a kind of release. “Wait! I don’t have to be afraid of death!”

Nobody wants to die a horrible death. But you can know that, regardless of how it happens, it’s going to happen, without a doubt. So embrace that truth and watch how accepting death makes your life more poignant. Watch how it taps you into your deeper passion and your greatest good. What a gift! What a joyful gift: when you die to the physical world, you are reborn again into that full, deep, rich spirit of eternal life.

That’s why we are excited. Because the more of you who, right now in your bodies, are willing to prepare for your death in this way, the more potential that we have—all of us together—to fulfilling our mission and making that evolutionary step.

Thank you and Namaste!

Breaking the Culture of Guilt

Last week, I had the luxury of spending seven days doing nothing but sitting in a chair and looking at the Pacific Ocean. My friend and I traveled to Rosarito, Mexico and made the executive decision to do as little as possible on our vacation.

Truth be told, I didn’t exactly do “nothing.” I finished reading one book and started another. We also walked to the local restaurant twice a day to eat. But other than that, the days were spent gazing out of the water sweeping into shore and concentrating on the vast blue of the open sky. It was heavenly. I did not feel at all guilty. In fact, I reveled in the luxury of having so much time to relax and take care of myself.

We started talking about disease (my friend is a doctor) and how much of disease originates in unprocessed and irrational feelings of guilt. I told her about some aches and pains I’d been having. I called them “moveable pain,” sometimes in my shoulder, sometimes in my rib, other times on the left side and then on the right. She suggested I explore what suppressed guilt might be at work in creating this pain.

As I settled into my meditation, I was surprised to find an old familiar memory immediately surfacing, one that involved a trauma I experienced as a pre-schooler with my father. He was screaming at me that, had it not been for me, he could have lived a happy life.

My father’s treatment of me as a child obviously shaped my worldview. The guilt that I was responsible for my father’s unhappiness carried over into all my relationships. It inspired co-dependency, drug addiction, self-sabotage, and unhappiness. My father wanted to make me feel I had done something wrong in order to make himself feel better about his unhappy life.

Through the years, by coming to know myself and using Conflict REVOLUTION to learn self-care, I’ve beaten the addictions, cultivated healthy relationships, and found my happiness. I know today that I was not guilty of anything back then and I’ve learned how to care for that inner child. So I was surprised to see this memory resurface. Was I still affected by this incident? Even in all my healing, was it buried so deep that instead of facing it consciously it had to manifest as my “moveable pain?”

As soon as I asked myself those questions, the scene from childhood jumped to the present and all the chaos of the current political situation here in the US. Lately I made the decision not to get swept away in this chaos, but I often find myself thinking that I have to “do more” otherwise I will be “part of the problem.”

I was surprised to think that those two images might be related—my father’s hurtful behavior and the current politic climate. And yet, what I see emerging in our culture today are people demonstrating the same lack of compassion and kindness that my father displayed. More war, more violence, more school shootings, more bullying. It’s as if society is being controlled by people as sick and lost as my father was when I was a kid.

It suddenly made sense to me that my well-meaning thoughts of wanting to make a positive contribution to change this culture would get tied up in that old guilt. And yet, I’ve come so far! I would not have thought I was still subject to its unseen influence. But, if it had not been buried, it would not have had to manifest as physical pain.

We decided to once again turn to Einstein for some insights about this embedded guilt. He explained how our modern culture is built on guilt, thereby making it nearly impossible to escape. But he also assured us that with mindfulness, compassion, and self-care, we can make new decisions grounded in self-love, for the good of all.

After a week at the beach, staring at the ocean, feeling and breathing my guilt, and reprogramming my thoughts, my pain is gone. Change may not always happen that quickly, and the pain may not be gone for good, but I am excited about moving forward being mindful of my decisions, feeling and breathing, and continuing to replace the voices of culture with those of love and compassion.

Below are notes from our session:

February 19, 2018
We command that only the most divine light shine down upon you at this time and the greatest good be present here.

It’s always a pleasure and an honor to welcome you to the circle. To begin with, we want to speak about what is going on in the world on February 19, 2018 in an energetic sense.

You as a human in 2018 are experiencing the powerful unification of humanity. Humanity is one body. There is no separation at the Source. That is the truth of your oneness. You are here to create unity within yourself, to the best of your ability, by waking up to the truth of your oneness.

The ultimate unification is when all the billions of people currently on the planet wake up to the truth of their collective oneness.

Overload

Right now your physical bodies are being overloaded by too much information. The truth of your oneness is too much information for your human mind to process. But in that challenge comes the growth and expansion you need. Being challenged to take in more and more information deepens your capacity to adapt to the truth of your oneness. Humanity is just now beginning to understand this level of reality, to understand how energy works, how physical matter is manifest through the perception of the human, and the importance of the intention of that human upon the organization of the physical world.

You are the leaders of change, choosing to instigate it first in yourself to then affect culture. This is the ultimate challenge right now. For those of you who have volunteered and were chosen to come here at this time to be the agents of change, you are working to free yourself from the separation that you feel as your mind is concentrating so purposefully in the Lens to create the seamless experience of a separate physical reality.

The evolution of human consciousness right now is in an extremely chaotic place, by design. It’s not a mistake. It’s not that the systems are failing. It’s that in order for you to achieve this oneness, you have to have transparency. And transparency brings with it a great deal of information that has to be processed.

Let’s talk about you as an individual alone: here you sit, you have your physical body, your thoughts, feelings, senses, memories, perceptions. You go to sleep, you wake up, you have days and nights: you are living this life. That is the Lens on the map. Even though your human mind is having this life in the Lens, there is a huge operating system that is invisible to your human mind that is allowing you to have these experiences.

As a human, you are slowly but surely removing the blocks from your human mind so you can take in all the rest of this information—and it’s so much information. So much so that people burn out and die because they don’t have the physical strength to process that much energy. It’s like getting electrocuted, so much energy surging into your body that it blows the circuits. That’s what’s happening right now.

People should be actively, consciously seeking to understand what’s going on in their own energy field and working to take these steps, one step at a time, to ensure that they don’t burn out in this expansion. Self-care is a valuable tool during chaotic times.

Don’t measure your progress by what you see going on in the Lens of your culture right now. If you did that, you would think you were making no progress at all. Don’t dismiss the events of your world, but put them in perspective with a much bigger picture.

Think about the people in your immediate world and about how many you feel you could have this conversation with. That should clearly illustrate what you’re up against in culture right now. You’re like salmon swimming upstream, pushing against the flow of people who are panicking, who don’t understand, who are projecting their judgments and defining their world against this 2018 culture. You’re doing it, too, whether you know it or not. It’s just a natural reaction of your human mind in 2018. But it’s not the whole truth.

This time when the veils are lifting is a very tumultuous and disruptive time. It was never going to be easy. But this is what is needed in order for human consciousness to expand past its limited capacity. By nature, human beings on their own will not push themselves to produce this kind of change. Disruption and conflict are needed to break down those walls and to build up the experiences one step at a time of what this big operating system really is. That’s why your physical body and your mental and emotional health need to go slowly, one step at a time. You don’t want the whole power plant surging into your wall socket.

Riding the Wave

Know that your human intellect is held prisoner in that culture of the Lens. Your job is to find a way out of that prison—not an easy task. It’s not just bliss and joy. Those things are there. But it’s the entire spectrum of human emotions that is being called to be integrated into what we would call power.

So yes, enjoy those times of bliss. Enjoy those times of joy. But know where you are on the journey. Know that the way will rise and fall. Know that you will reach a plateau and then you’ll drop again and then you’ll come up a little higher and then you’ll drop again and you’ll come up a little higher.

That’s why you should not think you are backpedaling when you re-experience some trauma from your past. It’s that your human psyche and your human operating system are so vast and so complex that there’s always going to be more emotions coming up, whether it’s emotions from this life or from the many layers of other lives that are also spinning on your string.

Let’s say you reincarnate into 2150 AD at a time after human consciousness has made the evolutionary step and culture is now based on compassion, unity and sustainability.

Even though that’s not where culture is right now in 2018, concentrate on creating within you the energy of that person in 2150. Simulate as much as you can what that person might be like, how they might think, feel and sense being brought up in the culture that teaches children how to take care of themselves and the world, for the good of all. Imagine the voice of that culture in your intellect supporting and self-loving, free of judgment, attachments and able to live in the truth of the oneness.

By bringing this person into your imagination, you’re using the future to help push the change along. But you’re also creating a conflict with the voices of culture in 2018 that often tell you that you are not worthy of such things. You get hopeless, as war and fighting rage on around you. Now you can feel even more out of time, more misunderstood and more hopeless.

Guilt

Guilt is a thought process married to an emotional state that then drives the decision-making process. Guilt messages you on a primordial level what is expected of you within your culture and involves making you feel as if you have done something wrong in order to induce you to do something to meet that cultural expectation.

Guilt is a wholly culture-generated perception based on the expectation that you must perform in a way that culture wants. If you had been born 3000 years ago in the southwest of the U.S., which was an indigenous Anasazi migratory route, your voices of culture would have been tuned much more to the earth.

There were always personal voices of culture within family units, but the community culture was magical, sustainable and based on taking care of everyone within the community, including Earth herself. Earth was Mother, the garden that provided everything they needed to survive and thrive with families in a community. The voices of culture drove them to respect and care for the Earth so that the next seven generations would also have an Earth to survive and thrive on.

The culture of 2018 for the most part is far removed from this. Today’s voices of culture have guilt permeating them: in order to have value, you must do something, you must perform, you must achieve, you must accomplish, you must be doing something all the time. It has nothing to do with what the earth wants you to do.

Back in the Anasazi culture, your worth was not based on achievement and performance. Worth was about living in accordance to the laws of nature and taking care of each other. You were born to live in harmony among the plants and animals of the earth. You were born worthy.

2018 is the polar opposite. You are so driven to do these performances that you aren’t even aware of what drives you to do them. Guilt is an inescapable position. Not because you haven’t done enough or learned enough or that you need to do more. It’s that your current culture is driven by it. Your current culture for the most part has lost touch with the earth, lost heart, and consequently is destroying itself. For without the earth, you have no home.

So what is one to do in the face of such potential imprisonment? Is there really no escape from these voices?

Become the Change

Your mission is to not wait for the voices of culture around you to change, but to change yourself from within. This means that very carefully and meticulously, through every single experience you have, you mindfully come to understand what your relationship is to this guilt and how it manifests in your life. This inquiry will then allow evolution to work through you, showing you creative solutions to change those inner voices of culture into ones that love, respect and sustain the infrastructure of your energy.

It’s not like there’s a manual that you can follow that everyone else followed the last time they went through this change, because there was no last time.  And chaos is a natural part of this change.

What do you do? It will help you to understand that there’s not a deficit happening in you because you feel guilt. On becoming aware that you feel guilt, you can decide to make a change in your life, and let that change lead you forward. You become a creature of evolution by holding the truth—that you have guilt—and asking Intuition how to guide you through this process of changing from within.

We can tell you ad infinitum, so much of this is about releasing emotion. In 2018 every human is suddenly aware of the incredible spectrum of emotion that is possible to feel. People are becoming transparent to themselves, and most people don’t know what to do with all that deep feeling. You have a natural tendency to suppress emotions or project them onto others. There must be a change in individuals and how they relate to, define, and process their own emotion. The need to know how to do this and put it into practice will never end. It’s part of the operating system.

If you are making decisions out of guilt and what you think the world wants of you, it means you’re still not being transparent with yourself. Open up and examine your guilt. Observe it as the witness to your life. See what it’s doing and constantly let intuition in to tell you how to change it.

The observation of what that guilt is will help you now to transform it, one step at a time. As you observe yourself, you can exist in a state where you can feel Intuition driving you to do something, and at the same time, you can hear the voices of culture telling you why you shouldn’t and why you can’t. These voices exist side by side. It’s not necessarily that you have to do away with these voices of guilt before you can make a change. It’s that you train yourself to use Intellect to make a decision based on what Intuition is telling you. You make a conscious choice to not act on the voices of guilt, which are of ego, but to act on the voices of Intuition, which are of Compassion.

Everyone experiences this. The voices in your head say you should do that, but your Intuition is saying, “Do this.” When you act on Intuition, you reach a place that is best for the entire system, not just best for what ego wants from moment to moment. We can tell you that almost every time you follow voices of guilt, you won’t get to that place that is best for you. You’ll get somewhere, but it won’t be that place that’s aligned to your Intuition and working for the good of the whole. And you can live there. You are capable of living a life that is dominated by the voices of culture and guilt and driven by them to the end of your life. But you risk living in constant conflict, illness, being unfulfilled and creating more separation from yourself by doing so.

You’ve come here to do something different. Every time you break away from the voices of culture and guilt and let Intuition influence you to make that decision that comes from compassion, you tick down those voices of culture just a bit. Ultimately, we would like to erase the voices of guilt.

In the 2150 operating system, your Intellect is as broad and open as the blue sky and that’s how you face the world every day. In that state, with your mind wide open and blue as that beautiful sky, there’s plenty of room to hear the impelling of Intuition telling you to take the next most advantageous step in whatever the situation is. That’s what you’re working for: a condition in your energy that looks like that: a big, open mind listening for the impelling of Intuition and then making a conscious decision to take that step.

Every single situation you find yourself in gives you a platform to practice this. Every conflict gives you the opportunity to look at what’s going on on a deeper level, find it, change it, and take a step forward to become aware of and living with the oneness of the entire operating system.

Do some meditation exercises where you pull in that person who lives in 2150 who already has a beautiful, open intellect, or go back 3,000 years and pull in that life, where every night you sat out under an incredible huge sky in prayer and you lived within the context of the natural world. Let those two strings of energy that are flowing through you now also come to life within you in 2018.

You can do this by either throwing yourself into culture, or by removing yourself from it. It doesn’t matter. Of course, it’s always a little bit easier when you’re not bombarded with people telling you things all the time to your face. But that can be an empowering platform, too: to observe what’s going on with you, then to let the trigger come up, then release more emotion, and then adjust your actions. It’s like training for a sport, say, soccer; you can practice by yourself, but you learn a lot when you get into the game and play against someone.

We think that 2018 is going to be a surprise year for those of you doing this work. As the world gets more insane, you will want to get more centered. You don’t want to get dragged along on the cultural expectation that all is lost and get lost in all the negative definitions of what’s going on. You don’t want to get swept away with the panic and the judgment and fear that swirling around in culture. You want to use all that chaos to remind yourself even more that now is the time to strengthen your resolve, to expand your own awareness of what’s going on, to pull in this bigger truth during the times when you’re experiencing guilt and when culture is telling you you’re wrong.

We feel it’s important to be connected to what’s going on in the world. But be aware there’s an addiction happening right now: you feel like you have to know what’s going on in the world. And that’s OK—but you don’t. You need to know what’s going on inside you. You need to be in touch with your energy. You need to be cultivating your witness and to make decisions based on what is best for the good of the whole operating system.

We urge you to experiment with all kinds of different ways that you can do that. If you need to cut yourself off from culture for a while, do that. If you need to throw yourself in and become involved in something that really means something to you, do that. Every single person, every single activity, every single path you take is giving you a platform to help the entire human species evolve. That is your job right now. That is your mission right now.

You’ve come here to do this impossible tasks of finding your oneness, of integrating your many lives, of finding your own power, to let emotion flow, to change your thinking process all while facing this increasingly chaotic world.

Don’t let the chaos of the world be an indication of your worth. It is an indication of the change, but not of your worth. Align the thought process of worth and value to the bigger picture. Look at what your current culture is doing to you. This is no easy task. It’s not an easy time to be alive. But it is a worthwhile time to be here, because you can make such a change.

Examine your guilt and the deep emotions around it in a new way, with a new relationship to it. Step by step, with mindfulness of your own energy and oneness, let yourself clear away the voices of culture that say, “You should, you have to.” Let those voices fade away as you open up that big sky that is your mind. Cement that witness to be mindful of who you are and what you’re doing. Breathe. Constantly be breathing emotion. The less you intellectualize your feelings, the more you can move them and release them from their abscess. Then listen closely for Intuition and then act on it. That, in 2018, will reward you with some new direction, and consequently some new manifestations.

Always come back to the fact that it’s a miracle that you are here at all in your physical body, that you have found people of like mind to help support you and feed back to you as you go through these enormous and impossible consciousness-expanding steps in your life. Go one step at a time. Don’t be discouraged. Know that, one step at a time, everything that you’re doing is assisting in the evolution of human consciousness in a big way.

We’re studying what is happening with you, always. In this Party, there are always souls coming and going, adding, observing, supporting. In fact, the Party has gotten quite big, and you are very, very much appreciated and loved by all of us. Thank you for your participation.

We’ll close the channel by reiterating that the world is in a place of great, great transformation. Try not to be fooled into aligning your thinking to what culture says. Open your mind to that large, beautiful sky. Let emotion be the primordial soup of creation, the tapping of your power. Embrace it all. Breathe it all. See it moving on the big string that is you. Listen for that beautiful voice within you. And then, of course, watch and be amazed.

Namaste.

Map of Human Consciousness

 

A Call To Action

On November 17, 2012 my nephew Howard Adler was ambushed and murdered in front of his home in Denver, Colorado. As you can imagine, many lives changed on a dime.

The suspect, who is facing a first-degree murder charge without bond, is the boyfriend of the mother of Howie’s three-year-old son Winton. Howie and the mother were engaged in determining the custody of Win, a special needs child who at three years old is not yet talking words and shows other signs of neglect. Howie kept meticulous records of his journey to have access to his son. When he was killed, he was about to go to court and gain his 50% custody, and quite possibly become the primary parent.

Death is a powerful tool, in any form. An accident, an illness, a heinous crime—Death and Life walk hand in hand. Most of us humans refuse to acknowledge Death’s ever-present shadow. We amble on in indecision as if there’s all the time in the world, afraid to face the inevitable, afraid to make a mistake, afraid to take a risk. Hanging on to resentments, we keep people we love at bay for silly reasons we don’t understand. Swallowed up in fearful stories, we refuse to take the step that would bring us the very fulfillment our souls long for.

In truth, one car accident, one cancer case, one knife wound takes away all those potentials like a puff of smoke.

I flew to Denver immediately to be with my sister, who is understandably shredded. However, the synchronicity that is occurring are stuff movies are made out of. Truly an angel, Howie is alive and well in Afterlife, guiding our quest for justice to make sure Win is protected.

Howie’s mom, my sister, has always been brilliant—this woman puts even my self-discipline to shame. Losing her son in this brutal way has honed her focus on constructing the whole case. Using emails, texts, pictures, affidavits from people who witnessed events, and personal diaries we are bringing all the pieces of the puzzle together. Our job is to bring Howie’s story to life for the DA and the State who are charged with protecting Winton.

My sister lovingly made a folder dedicated to Howie’s life. Viewing my precious nephew in pictures, from the cradle to the grave, with his beautiful son, I see a life well lived. The boy was a walking, talking joy machine. Every picture has his huge smile. All his friends talked about how he never let life drag him down. Even at his worst, he was even-tempered, positive, and intent on doing what was best for the good of all.

Perhaps someday I will write a book about this, but for now it’s hard to keep track of all the grace: the detective on the case is Brad With (no kidding); a girl at the clinic on the other end of town had pictures of Howie on her iPhone; a Jewish grief therapist with a connection to a trial lawyer appeared in the bank lobby; peace has broken out in my family, which has grown sizably; Howie’s very large and devoted following (the funeral procession stretched eight miles) stand ready, willing and able to do anything to help protect Winton. We are all one family now.

Howie's friends had teeshirts made in honor of him. Team Howie.

On behalf of my family, thank you so much to everyone who has sent us your unconditional love, said a prayer, visioned Winton safe, and expressed your condolences over this unfathomable act.

In honor of Howie, I challenge you to a Call to Action: You have your own universe filled with your own details that could dearly use your passion and commitment to change. Life is short. We need you. Get up off the couch, do something to better your world. There are wars to stop, mines to fight, wolves to protect, children to feed, homeless to shelter, a whole world of needs that you have the resources to fill.

During this turbulent time of change remember to touch deeply to the Source: Compassion. Allow it to inspire you to stand up and take action to better your world. That’s why we’re here.
