August Gateway: Massive Activation of the Crystalline Grid

 

August 1, 2017

Blessings Beloved Light Tribe ~

Gatekeepers opened the August Gateway passage on SUNday, initiating the August 3 – 25 acceleration. Feel into the cosmic forces at play during this massive influx of Divine Light. Keep your focus on Unity Consciousness; expand to cosmic-level perspective as this New Light organizes our realities for the highest interests and outcomes. Your Galactic Self, Christed Self, Cosmic Self will be merging with your consciousness, if you prepare and welcome this forth. A greatly amplified leveling up for some, an initiation for others.

As our Solar System arrives at this area of intensified photonic light, it creates embodiment via Divine DNA templates, unification of the multidimensional Self, and stimulates higher levels of creativity. Be present with this passage; honor and light-ground those creative ideas, intuitions, words, images, sounds, movement and geometries into this reality as the higher frequencies stimulate the crystalline DNA encodements.

Crystalline Gridwork and the Gateways have revealed an amplification within Gaia’s crystalline core. She will be stimulated by influxes of Light, then emanate that Light forth to fully activate the crystalline Grid network. We will be experiencing light codes from both off-planet (Solar and Cosmic) as well as planetary in a New way. Connect with Gaia and Solaris often; remember to align with the pure organic Ascension. See this video and text for details on amplifying the crystalline grid and your own crystalline consciousness.

Remember the passage BEFORE the Solar eclipse will be an active passage. This includes Solar Gateways, Cosmic Triggers and an intensification of the Cosmic Stargate to remove-all-blockages-to-Ascension. The Now preparations are key to our service during this passage. Let us focus on amplification of New Light Now, so the eclipse can do what it can do best; co-create with Divine Will.

Transcending Lower Realities

Revelations through the Heart must be honored to align with the highest trajectories for your Ascension. Honoring, feeling, expressing your Divine Heart and Divine Love creates a global raising of consciousness through the Unity fields of Divine Love and the Crystalline Grids. Remember the HUman heart grid is a strong component of the Crystalline New Earth Grid system, because it is Divine activated hearts which have co-created the New Earth with our Higher Selves and Future Selves.

Lower timelines drop away as the higher realities of Christ consciousness are embodied. The archetypal realities of Old Earth are rapidly transmuted as we embrace this next level of Ascension. This is a Divine dance, a synchronized vibrational exchange of higher light, expansion, integration and leveling up. It accelerates as time dynamics shift to accommodate a less dense, less linear version of collective realities.

Speed is an increase in complexity, or the amount of change and unusual events which occur within our experience. Photonic light is Divine order; connecting events, synchronizing trigger points of change, organizing our realities into Unity consciousness. It connects the dots, causing unification. Acceleration is witnessed by the higher timeline in the increased amount of change happening within our experience of linear time.

When we say a lot is going on, it is this organizing function of photonic light. It is a reflection of the macrocosmic reorganization, or rewrite at the Universal level. Harmony is commanded and achieved in the higher realms, and our denser reality mirrors this on the microcosmic level through more widespread shifts in consciousness.

We have evidence of rapid shifts in consciousness in just this lifestream. Collectively we are creating peace, order, and harmony as we consistently hit collective tipping points in our evolution. Individually we witness multiple incarnations in one lifestream. Rather than one linear unfoldment of a few lessons and experiences per lifetime, we now complete soul intentions and move on to accelerated evolution and Ascension – in just this lifetime. This is a reflection of the larger operation of complexity; more change and more reordering happening during this passage.

We expand to permanently merge with the future self. This is more evidence of the timeline collapse into Zero Point; focusing on what we are becoming rather than what we have been.

Resolution of conflict within assists the resolution of conflict without. The collective is moving away from conceptualizing unity consciousness as a theory or catch phrase, and applying the inner work to the outer projection of the external reality. We participate in the co-creation of our Ascension, and own our Divine right of Mastery.

The Bridge of Christ Consciousness

The templates for spirit-in-form change as the lower timelines drop away and higher vibrational realities become available. Applicable archetypes which bridge the worlds, like the Solar Cosmic Christ, are embodied en masse as the New templates of Self emerge. Christ consciousness is a bridge between worlds, which is why it has the savior connotation, and why masters said we would do All this and more. Just like a Primary Christed Ascension timeline, we utilize it as a Gateway to a new experience, because it bridges dimensions and densities.

We create new foundations during this passage; New templates to transition us to the new experience. Shedding old archetypes – old templates of HUman behavior, beingness, Jungian types, Dogma, belief systems, classic lifestream types – is similar to shedding lower timelines. Lower entanglements or beliefs seek a new home when the energetic support is gone. Divine HUmans abandon the old definitions, and transcend the patterns of the past.

Identity Crisis: Embrace the Unknown

There is a bit of an Identity crisis as this occurs; identity is strongly tied to the egoic, mental and emotional structures. When people cannot define themselves by old templates or archetypes, they seek a new one – or at least a temporary belief to help them feel secure in their beingness. We see this in the polarity of identifying with a galactic identity or ancient identity in the last decades; using a past or future association with another civilization or star system as a way to stabilize the lower self’s need to seek-an-archetype which fits the emerging new self.

When we surrender and open up to the present moment, the light and intel available in this timeline-shifting passage reveals the New crystalline way of beingness. There is great freedom in this, and freedom is an intention of the New Light and Galactic Stargates we are rapidly moving into. This also applies to the resolution of Lemurian and Atlantean timelines and their associated ancient conflicts, which completes with the Solar eclipse across the USA.

On a personal level, we choose to engage with evolution and stay a step ahead through our Ascension process. When enough of us choose to embody the new crystalline template – the Divine HUman – we shift into high gear on a collective level. It dissolves archetypes which are not applicable to the new realities and higher timelines. Many have taken on the challenge of embodiment of the New Template, Solar Cosmic Christ, or crystalline state of consciousness. We have heard embodiment changes everything for the last few years, and now we reap the fruits of that endeavor.

All of these events are vibrationally orchestrated; each step synching with another, influencing various aspects of our journey. This creates massive acceleration in the Shift, such as timeline and density drop-off.

Here are our collective focus points for August:

Thursday, August 3: August Gateway begins
SUNday August 6: Global Unity Meditations
Monday August 7: Full Moon (11:12amPT) and Partial Lunar eclipse
Tuesday August 8: Lion’s Gate peak
Friday August 11 – SUNday August 13: Cosmic Trigger
SUNday August 13: Global Unity Meditations
SUNday August 20: Global Unity Meditations
August 21: New Moon and Solar Eclipse (see this post and video)
August 25: End of August Gateway, connects to September 21-25 Equinox Gateway
SUNday August 27: Global Unity Meditations

Let us all honor this truly sacred passage of our Ascension. Embody your Divine Creator-Beingness Now. Breathe, be the impeccable compassionate Wayshower as things amplify. The external effects are what they are; take note of the revelations within your Heart. Let every thought, word and activity align with New Earth/Primary Timelines. Send that Divine LoveLight forth to all of creation, in Service to Source.

More Information Backing Up The Claim Trump Is A Timetraveler

 

Again, far too many coincidences…  What’s interesting is the fact that I have had several dreams of all president’s going back to Clinton.  Clinton I saw as a master manipulator and deceitful.  Creepy too.  Bush Junior ~ inside a simpleton, a little boy who needed to be kept in line by a strong female authority figure.  Kept in line meaning “look PROFESSIONAL”.  lol  Obama – laid back dude who would rather hang and party and engage in rather strange/lewd behaviors – not technically illegal – still rather twisted to most of us.  And now Trump.  I have had several dreams already and each one he has been absolutely honest, truly ready to roll up his sleeves and get to work – fixing what needs fixing – regardless of what anyone thinks of him.  I remember in one dream he had amazing hands – strong and really soft.  I felt nothing deceitful from him.  I know this – his presence is powerful and he projects the image this is what he is meant to do.  All along, even before he was elected, I have not seen him serving a full term.  Perhaps it’s because he will “disappear” (time travel)??  All I know is this is a HIGHLY unusual presidency.  Now also of intrigue and interest – the last book written by this same author who wrote about Baron Trump, his assistant Don, time traveling and living in Trump Castle – her last week written was called The Last President.  Perhaps Trump IS the last sitting president of this fading paradigm…  

Something Strange Is Going on with the Trump Family

Trump Says Prosperity Is Coming – Perhaps Like We Have Never Seen Before

 

Editor’s note:  I watch this video with interest.  One given he does say we are seeing prosperity coming very very soon, perhaps like we have never seen before.  He then mentions this is not being covered in the mainstream press, but it is going to have to be.  Also of note is his daughter Ivanka standing there.  When Heather Tucci-Jarraf was co-hosting a webinar prior to her trip to D.C., she mentioned she would be meeting with one of the Trump women – only she would not say which one.  I was able to put together she meant Ivanka.  Adding all of this up I can conclude (unless and until proven incorrect) that Trump was referring to the TDA accounts with his mention of coming prosperity of the likes we have not seen before.  Mentioning this was not being spoken of in the mainstream press – indeed true.  Now if this prosperity was as a result of one of his business policies, the mainstream press would have no reason not to cover that.  Nothing controversial about such things.  The fact that he had Ivanka standing there with him and the fact he will support legislation to fully audit the Federal Reserve, unlike previous presidents, which such a tactic may be to force them to reveal these accounts they have been hiding…all of this adds up to three letters:  T D A.  Time will tell.  Very shortly.  I did a bit of research on the Federal Reserve – how while it is an independent group of banks, it does have ties with the Government in that an act of Congress gave them the authority to establish themselves.  Therefore regular audits by the GAO are reasonable, of which they do admit to having regular audits both internally and via the GAO… but there are limits as to what the Government has access to.  Why is that?  Hmmm…  Total transparency is necessary and that is what these “audit the fed” pieces of legislation over the years seem to be focused on.  Given the Fed Reserve claims it’s purpose is to “serve the public”, it’s time they walk the talk.

Trump says ‘prosperity’ is coming ‘perhaps like we’ve never seen before’

A Visual Outlining This NAME IN ALL CAPS Talk

 

Thank you to my reader Robin for sharing this one.  Being a visual learner, and liking things simple, this is much appreciated.  We are Sovereign Beings.  Period.  

 

 

Here is the cover of the book the above image was taken from:

Intending FREEDOM

 

Image result for freedom images

Earlier today, this wall of emotion came over me.  I leaned over and began to purge.  Let’s just say in a variety of ways.  When I have these moments, I do not hold back.

A few moments later, I stood up, looked in the mirror and saw the anguish, the tears, the intensity of what I was feeling.

I.     WANT.     MY.     FREEDOM.

And I want it NOW!

This is becoming difficult.  The growing intensity of how much I want to live as my Soul is designed:  FREELY.

The state says I must pay to license my car.  I own the car outright. Possess the title.  And yet the state still says they claim ultimate ownership on my car that we bought with our money.  Excuse me but I do not see their name listed under owner.  Nor did they give me their portion of their money when purchasing it.

State says I must carry insurance on my car.  If not, they can impound my vehicle and charge me money.  A polite way of saying “we can come steal it and your money”.  Suspend my driver’s license.

I calculated recently:  The insurance industry and their scam operatives owe me over $300,000 for the money they have stolen from me over the years.  My “cost” to them?  A little over $200.  How is that a fair relationship?  Sounds like fraud to me.

What right does some bank have in telling me what I am worth?  My value?   What I am deserving of?  Assigning me some damn 3 digit number so I can be a card-carrying member of “my worth is tied up in these three numbers!”  Whoopie!

NOT.

What right does anyone have in telling me what I have to pay to eat?  Keep myself warm and safe and dry?  Clothed?  And who the fuck thinks it is okay to tell me this very fraudulent system, who dictates who makes what, that I must pay the same price to LIVE as someone who makes a million dollar salary?

What right does anyone have in telling me what I am deserving of in a home?  Where I can live?  The size of the house?  Whether the house is clean or a shack.  Whether the neighborhood is safe and quiet or a hell-hole laden with crime.

WHAT FUCKING RIGHT?

Are they somehow even BEYOND and ABOVE Source?

Better than?

Source sure does not place these labels and demands on me.

NEVER has.

NEVER will.

NO.  NO MORE to that.  NO MORE to ANY of it.

Slowly I am taking steps in taking back my power. Going by my OWN rules.  Following what works for ME and Who I Am.

Remembering my WORTH.  My VALUE.

WHO  I   AM.  

Just like Rosa Parks who said “No” when told she had to move because of the color of her skin.  Same fraudulent system telling another Sovereign Being what to do.

This woman is standing stronger with each passing second in saying “NO” to anyone, any group, any system who pushes their will upon me.

That way of being is OVER.

I accept only the new energies of Freedom and Sovereignty.

From today forward.

And I invite you to do the same.

Schumann Resonance Today

MUST READ: An Excellent Summary of our Strawman Accounts and The Case Against Heather Tucci-Jarraf by Sophia Love

 

If EVER there was a piece on my site I wish all would read, it’s this article.  Thank you and much love to Sophia Love for breaking this down in layman terms.  Please share far and wide!  This is INDEED one of the most important court cases.  The outcome affects every one of us.  We are on the cusp of TRUE FREEDOM for ALL.  Please find time to join in the Global Meditation this Friday, August 4th, 2017 at 10:00a.m. Eastern Standard Time.  

***

There’s a court case happening right now in Washington, DC.  Follow this blog (click here) and this man, Neil, (here), for up to the minute updates.  Google “The Strawman” and # HATJ. Read this article (click here). This “identity hearing” is being called one of the most important cases, worldwide, of this century. It’s being referred to as a pivotal moment, equal to the day that Rosa Parks refused to leave her seat on that bus in 1955 (click here). You’ll want to be informed.

It’s been aptly named (“identity hearing”).  Here’s why you should care:

We all begin the same. We are bits of eternal essence, birthed into physical form.  You may refer to this as “soul”. From this point on, we enter life as we’ve constructed it, into whichever society our mother was a part of.

Now physical, we are declared property, and given a number. That number is what “allows” us to operate commercially within the society we’ve entered. It is necessary in today’s society, in order to conduct any “legal” enterprise, or to be considered for employment; to “earn a living”.

Realize in which circumstances that number is demanded/required. You do not need it before breathing, moving, skipping, climbing, swimming, running, jumping, dancing, making love, eating, drinking, sleeping, singing or loving. These activities can only be performed by one who is alive. You do not need to “earn” them. They are a function of you, in physical form.

We all end the same. We leave our physical form and return our focus once again to eternal essence. You may refer to this as soul. From this point on, we continue life as we’ve constructed it. This will vary individually, according to our beliefs, as all constructs do.

As you are reading this or hearing this, your current focus is Earth. The story you’ve entered was already happening before you arrived. This may be before Rosa Parks got on that bus, or after, it matters not. You are here now because you wanted to see how it ends; not your life or Earth’s, but the story.

So, you have a number. Those that decided to number you, are not human. They look human, but instead they perceive themselves to be “humanities owners”. It turns out that George Carlin, and many others before and after him, were right (click here). They don’t give a damn about you.

They are the International Banking family bloodlines, 6 or 8 families I believe, and they own the planet. They’ve been told many times to give it up and move elsewhere, yet they won’t let go because of greed. We find ourselves here today, at the doorstep of not just financial freedom, but actual freedom. You’ve never experienced that, regardless of what you’ve been told.

These families consider you to be property. They are not the faces and names plastered all over your media. You do not see them. Their only interest is in holding on to the planet and a few humans, to keep them comfortable while they are on it.

This is a great deal to take in (if you haven’t already been following it). There are many truths that will elucidate this. Here’s an article (click here). It illustrates some of what’s been done with our numbers and associated value. I’ll try here to summarize our story up until this pivotal moment:

  • You are born.
  • You are numbered (think, in the United States, Social Security Number)
  • Your physical embodiment has a value immediately (this value is millions or billions)
  • This value, which emerges directly from your physical embodiment, is now assigned to your number.
  • Your number and value is represented as YOUR NAME IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS (i.e. ALL CAPS YOU).
  • The ALL CAPS LETTER “YOU” declares you (actual you) to be legally lost at sea, and now gone. (this part is a bit fuzzy)
  • Since the system/firm/bank/family/entity that numbered you, also owns you, they can now use ALL CAPS YOU for trade.
  • When you work “for a living”, you add value to the ALL CAPS YOU (Remember, you can’t be employed without a number)
  • When you take out a loan, you are borrowing from your own account (ALL CAPS YOU, which, by the way, is owned by the bankers), and charged interest until you pay yourself back.
  • Your owners use ALL CAPS YOU for collateral. This is because no one else has claimed ALL CAPS YOU (i.e. – you must be still “lost at sea”)
  • What is happening in Washington, DC this coming Friday, is that someone (Heather Ann Tucci-Jarraf, # HATJ) is attempting to set legal precedent – that she is the physical embodiment of her ALL CAPS, numbered representation.
  • She is NOT that ALL CAPS representation, (which is the legal fiction that has stolen her actual value, transferred it to a dollar amount, used it as collateral and charged her interest if she attempts to use any of it) – but the actual physical embodiment, and therefore value, herself.
  • She is the value – period. She is not “lost at sea”. As such, she is entitled to the value assigned to her at her birth. It is not the property/value of the ALL CAPS FICTION.  She is that value.
  • That ALL CAPS FICTION in fact represents a physical embodiment of eternal essence – you may refer to this as soul.
  • She cannot be owned or used as collateral. She is the value. Period.
  • As that value has been assigned a dollar amount, she is the holder of that dollar amount. This amount is, in the USA and for Heather, being held in a Treasury Direct Account at a Federal Reserve Bank, (which is not “Federal” but in fact a bank owned by one of the families previously mentioned).
  • It is not the dollar amount that is important, it’s the value. That value cannot be monetized. That value is you. You are eternal essence, physically embodied and priceless.
  • Your value has been monetized this way for commerce, which has supplied the owners with the tools for their slavery trade.
  • The undoing of this will happen when enough of us (the slaves in this story), let go of our desire for stuff.
  • This stuff, which costs money, which you now know comes directly from your own soul, is only worth what you decide it is worth.
  • It is the “greed” (which has been demonstrated to us by our owners) that keeps us stuck. We can see only one option, and it is to hang on to our stuff. If we all let go at once, we would be free. Behold the baboon (click here). He is only caught by his own efforts; he refuses to let go until it is too late.  It is not too late for us.
  • This story ends with release. What happens now is global awareness of the slavery trap, via the trial in Washington DC this Friday, August 4, 2017, at 10:00 AM EST. This ultimately results in a release of our monetary value by the owners.  It ends now. It is the end of that story.
  • Simultaneously, it is our own letting go.  For once we realize our worth; our value becomes paramount.  It translates to cash because society functions that way now. Once we behold in each other, a value that is equally worthy – we release the death grip on the value that is fiction. There is where our real power lies. It lies within.
  • It’s not yet determined how exactly we get there, yet for sure we are free. This now moment is akin to that Rosa Parks moment.  One of us has stood up and said “enough”.

What you can do now is share this story, every way that you can. There is no one untouched by these events. Visualize what your life looks like once you have access to the commercial value that has been yours since birth. Hold that vision. It becomes your reality now.

Our friend Jack Sturgeon has an idea.  He’s asked for each of us to meditate on love, freedom, and realization of value, for all concerned (owners included), at the moment the hearing begins; Friday, 8/4/17, 10:00 AM EST. He is applying the principles he outlined in this video (Click here for “It happens within”).  Here is his logic:

How many conscious people do we need to flip us into “Sovereignty” and
“Abundance”?  I believe about 3,000 people, then why isn’t anything
happening?  It is happening, but it doesn’t happen in a blink of an eye.

1) The mathematics has already been done, it amounts to this: the square
root of one tenth of one percent of the entire field.  To visually see
this, the entire field is 8 billion people.  One tenth of one percent of
the entire field is:  .001 x 8,000,000,000 = 8,000,000.

2) That’s 8 million people.  Take the square root of 8 million: the
square root of 8,000,000 = 2,828.4 or rounded off, 3,000 people.

3) That’s three (3) thousand people minimum meditating during the
Heather Hearing Case to get favorable results for “WE THE PEOPLE”.

So, share this blog. Join us for a global meditation on Friday, 10 AM EST. It is time.

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for ~ let’s do this.

With so much love,

Gluten-Free Superfoods That Make A Perfect Wheat Substitute

 

Editor’s note:  I use einkorn when I can afford it.  Love it!

August 2, 2017

Anna Hunt, Staff Writer
Waking Times

The Western diet is rich in wheat products, such as breads, pastas and pastries. Wheat is also added to many processed foods. Unfortunately, a large share of the population experiences negative health effects when eating wheat gluten. Anyone facing gluten intolerance or sensitivity can turn to gluten-free superfoods as an ideal wheat substitute.

Finding the Perfect Wheat Substitute

Luckily, we are learning new ways that we can reduce the effects of gluten intolerance. First, you can opt for wheat foods with less gluten. Dr. Josh Axe suggests soaking, sprouting, fermenting and lightly cooking wheat products to greatly reduce their gluten content.

Second, you can start using einkorn wheat. Farmers have harvested einkorn for over 10,000 years. It is highly nutritious and doesn’t contain the gluten peptide that is in modern wheat. You can learn how to cook some delicious foods with einkorn in the book Einkorn: Recipes for Nature’s Original Wheat.

Finally, there are several nutritious gluten-free superfoods that make the perfect wheat substitute. With these alternatives, you can still enjoy pasta, bread and baked goods, just without the gluten.

1. Teff

Teff wheat alternative

Teff is considered an up-and-coming superfood. It is a great wheat substitute. It is native to Ethiopia and grows well in dry climates. Moreover, it is versatile in cooking. Teff flour makes yummy desserts, pancakes and pastries.

Most importantly, teff has 50 percent more protein, five times the fiber, and 25 times more calcium than brown rice. As well, it offers a great combination of eight essential amino acids needed for the body’s growth and repair. In addition to calcium, it has high amounts of other minerals such as iron, phosphorous and magnesium. It is also high in Vitamin C.

2. Quinoa

quinoa flour

It doesn’t matter if you think quinoa is a seed or a grain, this widely popular grain is a delicious and highly-nutritious substitute for modern wheat. Native to South America, it is one of the best sources of vegan protein. It is also high in calcium, fiber, antioxidants, essential amino acids and other nutrients.

Food producers are now offering pastas and flours made out of quinoa. In addition, cooked whole-grain quinoa makes a great side dish and acts as a substitute for pasta in an entrée dish.

3. Hemp

Hemp powder

Hemp seed is one of the best sources of easily-digestible vegan protein. It is also high in calcium, zinc, fiber, vitamin E and antioxidants. Finally, it offers all the essential omega-3 and 6 fatty acids, as well as all ten essential amino acids.

You can use hemp flour and protein powder to make delicious brownies, energy bars and muffins. Remember, hemp food products are different from what you will find in medical cannabis baked goods. So, using hemp seed flour as a wheat substitute in your baked goods won’t get you high.

What About Brown Rice?

People perceive brown rice as a healthy alternative to wheat. Yet, nutritionally, it does not stack up to superfood status of the three foods mentioned above. In addition, brown rice is full of phytates and lectins. These substances bind to vitamins and minerals like zinc, copper, iron, magnesium, niacin and calcium, preventing them from being absorbed.

Overall, integrating einkorn, teff, hemp and quinoa into your diet and ditching modern wheat are a fantastic approach to improving your health.

11 Plant Based Proteins

 

Sent to me from one of my subscribers.  Some good information for those of us wishing to move away from eating meat.  

***

Pumpkin Seeds, Seed, Vegetable

1. Natto

Natto is a type of fermented soybean consumed most often in Japan. At 31 grams of protein in one cup, you can probably see why it ranked No. 1 on my list. It’s also a complete protein.

While I don’t recommend most soy products to my readers (due to the high prevalence of GMO options and phytoestrogen complications), natto is a fermented soy product that I think is worth the hype.

The smell and texture of natto often turn off people to trying it, but I enjoy the taste and don’t mind using it as a side dish — especially with all the benefits it provides.

2. Spirulina

This algae superfood looks a little bizarre, but this plant protein powerhouse has some unbelievable benefits, like heavy metal detox, HIV/AIDS improvement and cancer prevention.

While not a complete protein on its own, spirulina has a whopping 39 grams of protein in just a serving (part of why it’s a delicious part of a morning green smoothie). To supplement the methionine and cysteine it’s missing, just pair it with a whole grain or some nuts.

Spirulina also includes the highest amount of glutamine found in a plant food. Glutamine is an amino acid that is called “conditionally essential,” because the body is able to create it on its own, but it’s used in such large amounts that you also need to consume it through foods. (8)

3. Tempeh

Another one of the world’s best plant-based protein sources is tempeh, an Indonesian soybean. Like natto, this probiotic-rich bean is fermented to eliminate the common issues soy often provides.

You’ll get 18 grams of protein in a serving of this complete protein. Some people boil and eat it with soy sauce or coconut aminos, and since it absorbs neighboring flavors, you can use it with almost any recipe. Try it in chilis, salads and stews for a start.

4. Nutritional Yeast

Don’t let the name fool you — this yeast isn’t the same stuff that helps to bake bread. Nutritional yeast only contains about 9 grams of protein per serving; however, unlike almost any other plant food, it usually includes fortified Vitamin B-12.

Generally, you should treat nutritional yeast like a condiment or an ingredient in cheesy dishes or as a shake ingredient.

5. Pumpkin Seeds

A cup of pumpkin seeds contains 12 grams of protein. (9) Another complete protein source, pumpkin seeds are high in healthy fats, magnesium, lysine and zinc (the latter two of which are often limited on plant-based diets).

However, a word of caution: if you are counting calories (which I don’t often deem necessary), you should know that a cup of pumpkin seeds contains 264 calories.

6. Hemp Seeds

Hemp seeds have 9 grams of protein per serving, and are also complete in their amino acid profile. They contain gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which is probably one reason they have so many health benefits, like reducing inflammation and helping with multiple sclerosis.

7. Amaranth

A gluten-free “ancient-grain” cultivated first in history by the Aztecs, amaranth grains are an excellent source of nutrition. Amaranth is a complete protein, offering 9 grams per serving, and also contains over 100 percent of your daily recommended manganese intake.

8. Quinoa

Quinoa is another one of those incredible “ancient grains,” although it’s technically not a grain at all, but a “pseudocereal,” a seed that you use similarly to barley.

Due to its 8 grams of protein per serving, complete inclusion of amino acids and relative ease of access, quinoa is one of my favorite plant-based protein foods to eat often.

9. Black Beans

Although black beans are short just one amino acid (hydroxyproline) of being called “complete,” they still offer an awesome source of protein at 15 grams per serving.

They also contain a large amount of lysine and leucine, two of the amino acids rarely found in plant-based protein foods. (10) Leucine is the primary of three branched-chain amino acids, which is extremely significant for weight loss and metabolism management.

10. Green Peas

Apparently, your mom was right when she said eating your peas was important — green peas have 9 grams of protein per serving and include significant amounts of leucine, lysine and glutamine. (11)

They’re also one of those high-fiber foods that help decrease your risk of obesity, heart disease and diabetes.

11. Lentils

Referred to nutritionally as an “edible pulse,” lentils are part of the legume family and provide a great nutritional profile including 18 grams of protein.

They do technically contain all 20 amino acids, but the amounts of cysteine and methionine in lentils are negligible, so if you’re watching protein macros, try adding almonds or another healthy nut to even out the numbers.

Other “complete” plant-based proteins I enjoy include buckwheatchia seeds and Ezekiel breadChickpeas and lima beans are also great sources of protein.

Carrying The Energies of Unconditional Love

 

Heart, Love, Valentine'S Day, Abstract

August 2, 2017

I remember the first time in this incarnation I had a several-minute experience of feeling Unconditional Love.  Not just love as we humans define it but the kind of Love that is All (and awe) Encompassing.  It was around 2006/2007 and I was in my car, sitting in the parking lot, waiting for my mate to get off from work.  I was watching the cars go by, my mind, quiet.  Something within me began to imagine the stories of the people driving by.  Where were they going?  Were they going home and if so, was their home life happy, fulfilling?

My inner world then expanded as I began to wonder about our world leaders, in particular the current administration at the time of the United States.  I observed them making decisions, those that lead to war and destruction.  I tuned in to understand what was driving those decisions. What I saw and felt created a shift within.  I could feel that, while their actions were indeed heartless and often malicious, they literally had NO MEMORY of who they really were.  None.  They were completely lost, unable to hear much less feel the energies of their Higher Selves.

Next thing I know, I am weeping, sending them energies of Love that was so powerful ~ my human brain could only observe in stunned silence.  I remember thinking and knowing “this is how we are ALL designed to Be and one day you will return to this State in this body”.  It was such an overwhelmingly wonderful, beautiful experience, I literally BEGGED to stay in that state.  The energy grew until I felt I was going to burst open, my human body literally disintegrating to allow for the Light within to Shine to its Fullest.  Moments later, the feeling disappeared.  It was as though someone snapped off the light in the room and I was left, in a daze, to the thoughts now rushing through my mind.

I wondered how on earth would it be possible to carry these energies 24/7. Seriously – how could this be possible in a body?   That energy thing I felt was HUGE.  I thought I was literally going to burst apart.  The question makes me smile today and I feel a lot of tenderness for the person I was then. What I was really seeking was how could my body handle such a state of Being continuously?  What was the process for obtaining and maintaining this State?

Unaware of Ascension at the time and that entire experience/journey, I was not aware that awakening and returning to this State was a process, assisted by not just my own Intentions but by the Assistance of Source, Higher Selves and Cosmic Energies.

Since that date, I have had numerous such experiences, two very recently. I now know and feel I have more ability to hold this state as well as more “room” within this body to hold the energies.  Perhaps a good analogy is when we over-load a circuit.  Such an object can only withhold as much energy as it is designed to hold.  The beauty here is that our physical beings are changing structure to allow for us to hold those states of energy for longer periods of “time”.

And it isn’t just my physical body making changes to make this process the way of Being but it is my intention to release that which is essentially taking up space, keeping me in the state of separation and forgetfulness. Those memories and experiences and their accompanying emotions, certainly those that are not useful in the Remembering journey but are rather more like old dusty cobwebs that need a Love Clean to shine again. Cosmic energies incoming are greatly assisting us in this process.

I can see all of this in my mind’s eye just now as I read the previous words again.  When I am lost in the separation and forgetfulness, a part of me within literally snaps a finger, says “hey over here – REMEMBER”.  A nice trick, eh?

Today I return to that first experience I had over a decade ago.  Earlier today I was reading an online discussion on forgiveness, aimed at those who have kept us enslaved in this financial fraud.  Why waste energy wanting them punished?  What is it we really want here – FREEDOM. Pointing fingers and the like, if we make that our focus, will keep us disconnected from Source.  Now this is not to say being our Source Selves says we are a doormat.  Of course not.  Our Energy Bodies tell us when something is not OK.  We are to listen to these experiences and respond accordingly.  Incoming energies are already weakening the power of others who have played their power-over games ~ as well as those of us who have participated in the power-under games.  Supportive energies are going to leave those who have participated in the most destructive ways with the option ~ heal and ascend or you will vibrate naturally to a realm of your choosing which will allow you to continue your ways until you see, feel and know different.  That is my perception.

I pause as I feel I was given that moment so long ago to remind me today that truly being Free includes being Free of Judgment.  It is liberating.  If I can find forgiveness, if I can find Love for those who have perpetuated the most destructive of behaviors, well then I have nothing but Hope we can all find it within ourselves as well ~ for us and for all.

How powerful this will be when we can look into the eyes of one, including ourselves, who is detached from Source Energy and say with Strength and Absolute Knowing:  “You have forgotten who you really are.  I see you. You are Love. You really do not want to participate in this, do you?”

Such an interaction with others and most importantly, with ourselves, can and will create experiences of healing and beauty for all.  And ultimately, Freedom.
