Love and Hope in Intense Times!

Mare futurenow

To say that these are intense times is an understatement. As I am writing this, a second hurricane of “Biblical” proportions is hammering populations within the Caribbean, after Hurricane Harvey devastated Houston and other parts of Texas.

 

More than two hundred people have been killed by a powerful earthquake in Mexico City, and other parts of our Sacred Earth are shifting and cracking leaving residents in and around those faultlines at the mercy of what happens when the ground shakes and buildings are not stable enough to handle the unstable ground underneath. (Prayers to all those suffering there and in the hurricane zones right now… mega prayers.)

 

Some of the indigenous prophecies call this the Time of Purification. Mother Gaia is going through a rapid transformative shift right now to facilitate the full birth of the New World coming in. This is being facilitated by energies moving through this part of our galaxy and solar system, along with other energetics on the planet.

 

Some call this process the Ascension, as in “ascending energies/spiritual vibrational fields”. However I think that word in some ways connotes rising up energetically while still not acknowledging the existence and heart of Mother Gaia in the center of the planet – and connecting spiritually/energetically with her heart to help manifest this New World. We need both for the Ascension to truly happen.

 

Gaia has asked me this morning to share the following to help support us (humans) in these times:

 

  • Know that Mother Gaia loves us tremendously, tremendously and is calling us Home. We are not parasites or fleas on her back. We are her beloved children. Yes, she is irritated with how far astray we (the Western Dominant Culture) have come from being in sacred balance and reverence with her, on her, for her. But she still LOVES us.

 

  • The Purification that is going on needs to happen. This Purification on the physical planes with the weather and tectonic shifting is part of this birthing process. Nothing is ever static anywhere in the universe, not solar systems, stars, continental plates, riverbanks, coastlines, cultural systems, languages, etc. (Mother wants this repeated) — NOTHING IS STATIC.

 

  • The energies on our Sacred Earth are shifting rather rapidly also. The Purification that is becoming quite evident on the physical planes is also what each of us are being nudged, cajoled, or kicked to bring forth internally within our hearts, our emotional bodies — soul bodies. We need to heal ourselves at the deepest levels, within our body-mind-spirit selves, so that energetically we can begin to hold the spiritual vibration of this New World, 5th Dimensional (plus) way of being.

                  — As above, so below. As outside, so within.

— One of my friends posted on Facebook last week: we need to become comfortable living outside of our comfort zones because that is where we are quickly headed. Some are already in that reality such as those in Houston, Barbuda, Key West, Puerto Rico, India, the West Coast fire zones, Chile … the list is long and growing longer.

 

  • We are being called to remember that we are beings of LOVE. Beings of LIGHT. We simply have to remember and heal back into those states of Being. To live from our hearts more, our Higher Selves, and less from the intellectual mind place. To heal the woundedness, sorrow, shame, guilt, anger, hurt and more of those lower vibrational emotional places that keep us spinning in Victim space, and worse.

 

  • We are going through a Birthing Canal of intensity from outside forces and within ourselves. And we just don’t have the choice of going back to the Old Ways. A mother in the process of birthing her baby cannot allow the baby to crawl back inside if the baby is in pain or terrified of the how tight that Birth Canal is.

 

  • There are ancient aspects of ourselves within our DNA and in our ancestral memories that we are being called to tap NOW to reawaken the Wisdom, the Compassion, the deep knowing of what “Community” means so that the needs of all are met. All humans, all species, all beings – all of our needs shall be met. It’s time to Re-Awaken those aspects of ourselves and also Open Ourselves up to the New Energies surging forward that have not been experienced on this planet ever.

 

  • LOVING Ourselves, Self-Compassion for ourselves and others is paramount. Forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness. For ourselves and all around us is key. Healing our Shadow. Loving up our wounded Inner Child. These are all necessary for our shifting into our true beings of Love and Light.

 

  • Focusing on Our Basic Human needs (healthy food, clean water, clothing and simple shelter) and meeting those in a sustainable, healthy, balance way is the only path for the future, in truth.

— Case in Point: If those in Houston and the decision-making halls of Houston and DC were tapped into a greater wisdom, they would rebuild the city infrastructure and all the homes from the standpoint of what is healthiest for all species for the next 7 Generations, plus. No more chemical plants. No more oil refineries. Simple homes. Minimize the impervious surfaces. Put in major bike lanes everywhere (showers at work). More.

 

  • Mother Gaia is saying: ENOUGH ALREADY! Come HOME to me. I LOVE you and am your true Mother! You are born from my minerals, my waters, my beloved plants and animals. You actually don’t have a choice here since I cannot tolerate, nor do all the spiritual councils of nature spirits, ancestors and others on the spirit plane tolerate how unconscious your global society has become.

 

  • Mother is also sharing that this New World coming in right now is an incredibly beautiful world of Great Peace and Compassion, Community, Health, Joy and more. It is there – around the corner! (In some instances, it is here now in various corners: Ecovillages, community gardens, cooperative solar ventures, healing centers, more.)

                  — AND we are all seeds of this New World! All of us. Our personal choice is how pro-actively we gestate this seed within ourselves and collectively within our communities to begin to live the New World already – in our thoughts, actions (sustainable living, community focused), and words.

— Some have already been germinating this seed in advance and are the visionaries and ones to learn from.

— But we are all unique beings of Divine Love, and we each are being called to manifest it as our souls guide us along this path of manifesting the New World.

                    — The other option is to resist more. Tuck into the six pack of beer and numb out on Cable TV instead again. Freak out about the News and go even more Numb.

 

  • Every state of FEAR or Numb-Out is a doorway to potential healing though.  Every emotional freak-out or numb-out is an invitation to be held and hugged and healing energies brought forward to remind ourselves that we are not alone, we are in community and we can weave our energies together, our hearts and our creative minds to be pro-active seeds of HOPE and LOVE, for this New World.   There is an energetic global web of love, healing, and hope weaving powerfully right now and we are all invited to join in with our soul-strand to others soul-strands make it tighter and more beautiful and powerful.

 

  • The Age of Separation is OVER. We are now in the Age of Oneness and are being asked to truly shift into this NOW.

 

  • Mother wants us to deeply, deeply know also, that there are many, many beautiful and powerful ones on the Spirit planes here to support us in this Purification and Birthing. Call on them! They want to help us hugely!

                — They include: Creator/Great Mystery, Creatrix/Goddess of the Universe/Great Divine Mother, the Christ Consciousness, Virgin Mary, Mary Magdalene, Archangel Michael, Archangel Gabriel (all the Archangels), Kuan Yin, the Buddhist Taras, Oshun, Mother Gaia!, our Ancestors serving the Highest Good, Freya, Thor… the list goes on and on. Every belief system has their Gods and Goddesses to tap. Call on them!

             — They can give us strength and spiritual support in ways that are beyond words as we heal into the Love, Hope, co-creative shifting, healing, rebuilding and transitioning into this New World.

            — We are surrounded by Quantum Divine Love – ALL THE TIME. We are that Love too! We have just forgotten. NOW is the time to remember. Now… !

           —  You are a seed for the New World. Now is the time for you to truly cultivate your SEED-Self! There is a beautiful, amazing future ahead and we are all on the team to manifest it!

 

So much love,

Mare Cromwell, with Mother Gaia

On Suffering is Not Necessary to Grow Spiritually – Excerpt “The Great Mother Bible”. 3/4/14

Mother: I need to talk about this idea that suffering by choice is a path of living. Somehow a while back some ideas were seeded into you two-leggeds that you need to flog yourself either physically or emotionally and this was a good thing. This idea took hold and let’s just say that the song on my planet went down a few notches when this really started to become habitual for you.

This prevalent belief that you are supposed to toil and each day needs to involve some struggle is flawed. Some of you through the centuries wore hairshirts as a bizarre way of reaching the Divine. Why would the Creator/God/Allah ever want someone to suffer as a way of prayer? Then there was self-flagellation. Oh, my, I cringed when I saw what some of these humans were doing as an act of getting closer to their version of God.

Life is supposed to be about celebrating each and every moment as a dance of joy. It’s amazing to be in the body you’ve been given here on me. This splendiferous body where you can dance, touch, walk the ground barefoot in communion with me, have an orgasm of joy ripple up and down your body, and eat chocolate. Peaches. Cherries. Passionfruit. Oh, passionfruit! That’s the thing,WomanGlowEarth you’re supposed to be living passionately, compassionately, in full abundance of energy and … and … somehow this understanding got lost.

Even one of your Catholic saints wrote: “The glory of God is man fully alive.” Some of these saints were spot-on. I loved St. Francis of Assissi. Anyway—alive with joy, with giving, with compassion for all around you including all the four-leggeds, six-leggeds, winged ones and more. Alive with the knowledge that waking up in the morning and sucking air is a miracle along with having delicious food from the local trees and other plants and more.

Alive with gratitude for the Great Father and me and all the other unseen spiritual forces that surround you with love each and every moment all day long and into the night and then the next day. Alive with gratitude for fire even! The fire that warms you, cooks your food, gives you hope of great spiritual connection to the great magic and mystery of life here on me. And if it’s not fire, then your electricity. Taking this love in and giving it back out. To me. To Creator. To your pet, your partner, your colleague at work…

Message 26 – On Grief and Joy and Seeds

[The first section of this blog is actually a book called Messages from Mother…. Earth Mother released at the end of October, 2012. You can read all of the Messages here or purchase the book with the first thirteen Messages at this page. It is also available as a Kindle e-book and at other internet venues and can be ordered from any bookstore in the USA, Australia, Great Britain, and other international sites.]

Oh, my loves, my loves, yes, it has been some time since I’ve given you a message and yes, it’s now time for another one.

This time, I think you are ready to learn about sorrow and grief, and then joy. Yes, grief and joy.

Oh, I love you so much… so, so much. And it hurts me to see so many of you walking around with such sadness in you. So many of you. Most of you. And this sadness is making you sick. Either sick in your heart or even in your body. It is a heaviness that is festering in you that you don’t need to hold onto so much. Not at all.

Yes, I know there is so much to feel sorrow about. There is so much to be angry about. Even rageful sometimes. It does make sense to me. On so many levels it makes sense to me. The two-leggeds running your chemical companies continue to spew out chemicals. And so many of you have not yet learned how it is not necessary to buy these chemicals to kill my beloved six-leggeds or flowers that most of you call “weeds.”

I understand why a good number of you who do know it is not right to use these chemicals carry this anger and sadness. There are those two-leggeds who continue to think drilling or mining is the right way to go—which it is not at all. And this makes for such sorrow especially when there are oil spills and my rivers and streams and bays and even the entire Gulf of Mexico are covered with all those fossilized liquids that I stored under those rocks layers so long ago. Those fossilized things were supposed to stay under the rock layers.

Yes, I can completely see that this would make so many of you so angry and sad, and rightly so. I’m not so happy about it either.

Sigh.

But all of this sadness. It is a collective heavy energy that is not serving me. Nor the dolphins or whales who are so, so sensitive. It is not serving all the healing work that we need across all of me, all of my lands and waters. I know I’ve talked about this before but it bears repeating.

If I could gather all of you up into a huge yoga class, an absolutely huge yoga class where you could all learn breathing techniques, I would have you all learn something called “Mother’s Letting Go to God and Me” breathing prayers. Not sure where you all could gather for such an event. I guess it could be simulcast into football and soccer stadiums around the world. Maybe that would work.

Anyway, this is an ancient, ancient breathing technique (not as old as I am but still ancient) where you take in several long deep breaths and let them go, and allow for your breathing to go deep, deep into your lungs at the last breath in… and you do this several times.

Then take another deep breath in and imagine all that sorrow that you feel inside of you that has been so heavy, and just let that breath absorb as much of that sorrow as you can, and then exhale it out with great force. A huge force. A planet changing force. Just exhale it out. Give it away … let it go … Again, and again … until you feel that sadness budging and gradually loosening its hold on you.

You can also go out to the trees, the standing ones, and seek their help. They love to help two-leggeds with pure hearts who seek to connect with them. Go to the one that calls to you in the subtle ways that plants work and put your hands on that tree and give it love. Send love into the tree through your hands. And ask the tree if he or she would like to help you with your grief. Ask the tree to take it from you. The odds are really good the tree will be ecstatic to help you. And, believe me, they are very capable of taking it away from you. They can be very good at that. It just fills them with such joy to even be recognized and asked. They so long to be seen as the great wise and powerful beings whom they are.

And if there is anything left of that sadness, the deep grief, imagine your taking it into your arms as if it were a woeful little abandoned child and dance with it. Dance slowly and hold this child in your arms, compassionately, gently—with love. Dance this grief up and down the dance floor and into the hallway and back again, and hold the child close to you, so close the child’s heart beats with your heart and the child calms so in your arms and after enough turns and swings, the child begins to let go and cry in your arms, and just sob and sob. And you hold this child of grief to the point of the last gasping sobs where the child calms down so much that you can put her down into her bed. A bed that you set aside especially for her, knowing that there would come a time when she would release and be spent finally of that overwhelming sorrow, and she could finally really rest. Be still and rest.

And when this child wakes up, he or she will be a different child. There will be a sparkle in her eye and lightness to her that you have never experienced before. She will have let go of so much sadness that she finally broke through to the joy on the other side. Such joy, oh, such beautiful joy. Just tickles me to think of this joy.

You might wonder how it is that you or some of your good friends could experience such a joy in the midst of all of these horrific things on the planet. All the contamination. All of the suicide bombings. All of the disease and starvation and rapings, all of it.

Well, that’s the invitation here—to learn how to carry your sorrow with an equal amount of the capacity to be in the moment, in this very moment of one inhalation and one exhalation and feel a great joy for just being alive. Alive in these dangerous and interesting times of great change. The Great Turning—some of you call it. To carry the moment-to-moment wonder and childlike openness and trust in the goodness of most of the two-leggeds around you. There is such goodness. There are so many beautiful hearts in so many of you.

You see, within each of you lies the seed of this new world being birthed right now. So many of you are birthing together, in groups, collectively. That really is the best way to birth it. Or if you’ve been working alone, you will start finding the other two-leggeds to work with. You are planting the seeds of the beautiful future ahead and this is why you are invited to dance. I encourage you to even get out the drums and drum while some dance. Or most dance. However you like it, but the key thing is to celebrate also, and keep that energy moving so it’s not just a heavy sludge of sorrow that you are all wallowing in. I would so like to see you shake that sludge off.

This New World coming in is a beautiful thing to celebrate. It is… I’m greatly excited about it, myself.

Your community gardens. Your attempts to learn consensus decision-making and listen from the heart. Your attempts and great success at learning compassion and openness and trusting that just about every time you plant a seed, a baby plant will grow from that… oh, yes. Your windmills. Your solar panels that tap the beautiful sun’s energy… the small dams in streams that power mills… so many brilliant things that so many of you all are doing. All the different ways that you are working on healing your society’s dysfunctional ways to be in more balance with my ways, Earth Mother’s ways. It is so beautiful.

So, if you are feeling this terrible sorrow, find a tree. As it for help. Or dance with your grief. And go find those other two-leggeds whom are doing such beautiful work to be more sustainable or community-oriented, if you are not as actively involved as they are yet, and join them. Have celebrations. Have parties. Get out the drums. Create ceremony. Offer tobacco to me and all of my beautiful trees, etc., and dance and move that energy. Move your bodies. Sing. Feel the sadness budge and let some joy into those cracks. Yes, feel some good joy, and let it move all around you, within you, and out of you to others.

Be the beautiful seed carriers whom you are—you really are. Be those two-leggeds whom are learning to love me, your Great Mother, and learning how to live in ways that are so healing, so restorative to all that I am. Yes, you can learn to be a seed carrier and really live it. The seed is in within you already. Already there. Just water it with love and devotion and it will root there and you can grow into being the catalysts for this beautiful new world coming up and out today. Today. This very day.

And tomorrow.

And the next day too.

Dance with it, give it compassion and love. And lots of drumming.

And before you know it… we have a new world. It is here. And there is so little need for sorrow because you’re already made it around the Great Turn. To the other side.

Yes!

I love you all. Love you so, so much!

With dancing, jiggly-earthiness, beautiful hugs… I love you!

Message 23 – Sweetness, Joy and Love, When You Still Your Minds.

~~~

Oh, my dear ones, my beloved two-leggeds. How sweet some of you are becoming. You are taking in these powerful energies on Earth, on me, and you are growing and shifting so fast. All of these hearts opening up. All of this wisdom and compassion bubbling up, it is such joy for me to be experiencing all of your Love coming forth.

Ah, now to encourage you all to still your minds, all of those monkey-minds of yours. This would be so key. And to also pull you away from your computers and cellphones and all the other gizmos that you are all so addicted to.

If only you knew, if only you could feel the amount of joy there is outside in the forests, in the streams, in the barren places that you call wasteland such as deserts and wetlands. If only you could still yourselves enough to stand there and drink up the beautiful energies of these areas that are barely touched by you all. Even areas that have been touched and have regrown, they are filled with joy but they are healing so their joy is not so strong as the wilderness areas.

Oh, it would give me so much joy if all of you would go outside as much as you can and still your busy minds and tune into the sounds of the ducks scrabbling around for food on the muck of a pond. Or the sound of a few oak leaves scratching against each other in the cold winter breeze. Or maybe you could catch a glimpse of that large woodpecker that just landed in the tree above your head.

And as you’re tuning in and your mind ceases the chatter, you can begin to also feel all that Love there. The Love of the trees as they stand so still and hold up the sky. The Love of the breeze as it gently tosses some grass stalks to one side.

It is out there. And in you too. It is all there, all that Love, for you to tap into when you still those restless minds of chitchat thoughts and lists of grocery items that you forgot to get, or cogitate on how to speak to your two-legged lover about how you’d appreciate if he would talk more.

Just be still. It is all there. Love. Even from the lover two-legged who is not sure how to communicate what he wants to say. Love.

Oh, how I Love all of you. So, so much. As many colors in the feather of a peacock, my Love transcends and holds all that joy, for all of you.

Mother: Sarah, Sarah … Sarah. I am so loving these meetings with you in the Sacred Grove. You don’t know how much I look forward to them every week. It is so much fun to be chatting with you and sharing these messages. I did not tell you this before, but I’d been trying to find the right two-legged to be my messenger for a number of years. You were the one who kept on surfacing. So I kept an eye on you until it felt like the right time to appear to you. You are a very special two-legged, so pure of heart and intention. And you’ve always loved me. I know this.

Sarah: Gosh, Mother, those are such kind words. I’m not sure if I deserve all of that. I don’t feel that special at all. As a matter of fact, I had the hardest time getting up this morning because I offended another teacher at work yesterday. It was by mistake and I felt really awful about it.

Mother: Sarah, love, you are a flawed two-legged just like every other two-legged and so lovable. Don’t fret about what happened at work. You did not intend to be mean. There are two-leggeds out there who actually enjoy being mean. That’s not you. You are a beautiful person. You are—inside and out. Plus, you’ve always been deeply connected to me. From the moment you were a young girl running around outside playing in the woods and fields outside your family’s home.

Sarah: I never thought about it that way. I guess I have been.

Mother: Yes. Yes, indeed. So, this meeting today is going to be different. I’m going to take you on a journey. A journey into the future. This is going to be fun. What I want you to do is to come over here and scootch next to me here on this small bench. I’m going to hold your hand and off we’ll go! Don’t worry, we’ll be safe.

Sarah got up from her wooden chair and squeezed in beside Mother on the bench where Mother was sitting. The space was so tight that Sarah and Mother’s sides were pressed together. Sarah wanted to just snuggle right into Mother but resisted the temptation. She knew Mother wanted her to stay alert and present.

Okay, Sarah, I’m going to hold your hand and you just close your eyes and trust me. We’re going to go on a wonderful journey! I want you just to observe and I’ll explain things as we go, okay?

Before Sarah knew it, she was transported out of her body into a dream state that was more than just dreaming. Mother was next to her, grasping her hand as they zoomed through the air. They quickly left the forest, and before Sarah knew it, they were flying over very high mountains with glaciers that extended for a very long way. They swooped over forested valleys that sparkled with streams and rivers coursing through them and over more mountains. In one valley an eagle flew close and parallel to them. Sarah could feel its piercing gaze as they flew together. Then the eagle soared off. Hawks circled below them at several points. It felt as if they were flying across the world.

 

Finally they arrived at a large valley with several villages dotting it. Sarah could see the chimney smoke from high up as she and Mother made a silent circle over one village. Mother guided them to the ground on the outskirts of that village, beyond a pasture of cows and sheep. Goats grazed in another nearby field while chickens clucked next to a set of gardens behind several homes.

Mother: Sarah, we can stand here and observe this village. They can’t see us. They can’t even hear us. We have traveled to the future here and are in a different dimension from theirs. I want you to observe these two-leggeds and tell me what you notice. I know you can see they are living very differently from the way you live in your apartment in the city. Or the way other two-leggeds live outside the city, in those areas where all the houses look like little boxes.

Sarah: Yes, that is so true. Their homes are so simple and they are all round and seem to be made out of—is that woven material over wood? And how interesting that they’ve been able to make curved glass windows. Their clothes are more muted colors, none of the really bright reds or yellows or oranges that we have now. What I’m really noticing is how happy everyone looks. The children are running around, playing a game with sticks and what looks like hollowed gourds. I can’t figure the game out, but their laughter is so infectious. Oh, look! One of the children is running this way!

Mother: Do not worry, daughter, this little boy can’t see us. He’ll run right by us and will never know that we’re here.

The young boy ran within three feet of Sarah and right past her to grab some more sticks and then returned to the other children close to one of the homes.

Sarah: Mother, I think I see lights inside one of the homes? Could this be possible? I don’t see any electrical lines outside and yet it looks like a lamp inside?

Mother: Yes, Sarah, they do have lamps that work. But they’ve gotten smarter and don’t need to have an electrical grid based on breaking atoms or my precious coal layers to provide the electricity. Every home has a technology that creates electricity out of a vortex box in one side of the home. I can’t explain it exactly but they’ve been able to create these systems that naturally return to the soil after they stop working. They are so clean and silent and beautiful. I love them. These vortex boxes power their lights, their fans, their cold food storage, just about anything they need that requires energy.

I love what they are doing in these villages. They don’t rely on any materials from my skin and bones. They use the trees and plants and animal parts and their labs create beautiful things that all break down in time in a lovely way. Nothing toxic like the things your culture creates now. When they go out in the forest, they work with such reverence and kindness with the plant beings. It’s so beautiful. And it’s so peaceful here. These two-leggeds have learned from the mistakes of your time to leave the stuff in my bones—my rock layers—alone. Everything they are doing is coming from what they are finding in the woods and valley around them.

Let me share more with you about these villages, about aspects of them that are hard for you to see from here. These two-leggeds are very sensitive. Most of them talk psychically with each other all the time. They are very empathic too, and are constantly communicating with the plants that grow around their homes, their vegetables and flowers, as well as with their four-legged companions, the dogs, cats, sheep, etc. They recognize they are in relationship on the same level with all their four-leggeds.

But it’s not as if these two-leggeds chat all the time. Their minds are much more still than the minds of the two-leggeds in your culture. They are able to sit with a calm mind and tune into nature intelligences from miles away. They know when rainstorms are coming several days in advance, by standing outside and listening and feeling. Their more gifted ones are particularly able to do this. They are powerful healers and very, very wise souls.

There are no prisons here, Sarah. No jails even. Certainly there are some who struggle and sometimes violate the village codes. But instead of being sent to a jail, they are assigned to be with a gifted one to be healed. The gifted ones, when they need a break because they are exhausted from their healing and spiritual work, go on retreat to a sacred cluster of guesthouses along the edge of the forest way over to the north. There is a big spring that bubbles out of the rocks near the guesthouses. My energy is very powerful in that place, and the healers go there to replenish themselves and tune into the wisdom of the spring and rocks. The village people know that the space is sacred for the gifted ones only.

Ceremonies are held here often. Ceremony for the plants, the gardens, the harvest, the moons. When a baby is born. When someone passes over. When someone goes through a major healing and is born into a new phase in their life. There are ceremonies for all of these events. I love their ceremonies since there is so much fun and love and dancing, singing, drumming—all of it. It’s such a joy for me to come and visit them here. You see, I can travel here into the future anytime I want. I do this often to help me stay hopeful in the midst of all you two-leggeds are going through at this time.

One thing this village does not have is people who have the greed sickness. That was healed several generations ago. Whenever anyone starts to show any sign of hoarding or not sharing, they are immediately asked to go and sit with one of the gifted ones for some healings and teachings. What a relief to me that the greed sickness no longer prevails here.

Yes, everything is shared. Food is shared. Homes are even shared at times when someone is in need. No one goes hungry. No one is lacking. Everyone knows the community is watching out for them to make sure they get what they need—food, or warm blankets, or even hugs. They build homes together, and it’s amazing the systems they have. These homes go up fast with everyone cooperating and singing while they’re working. Sometimes they tell jokes too. Even corny ones. I love those corny jokes, as you know.

And I love how the elders are so active. They live with their children and grandchildren. They watch the young ones when the parents are gardening or working in the village craft centers. The smiles on these grandparents’ faces. Oh, it makes me all tickled inside, seeing how happy they are. And you know what? These elders live until they are into their 120’s or so.

When an elder or anyone takes sick, they go to another part of the village, a cluster of cottages where they are treated by special gifted ones with the most powerful healing abilities and knowledge of herbs. It’s all done with such love and kindness. So beautiful.

Sure, there are times when some two-legged might get upset or angry or have a bad day, but these bursts of emotion are short-lived since they are surrounded by such love. They are supported in healing through their moment’s pain so quickly.

When there are decisions to be made that involve the whole village, they come together in a circle with specially selected women and men, elders and teenagers. All viewpoints are heard and weighed. These two-leggeds are good listeners since their minds are so still. It’s fun to watch these meetings and see how they move from voice to voice to take all the wisdom into a sacred container to distill it all into decisions that serve them all.

What is most remarkable is how they perceive time. They trust there is time for everything and that all will be taken care of in the right time. That great fear of a limited resource called time does not exist there. Some of them, the gifted ones, even know how to bend time.

Sarah, this is the future. Your culture, believe it or not, is evolving toward this.

I only wish that I could snap my fingers and take you there in a millisecond. But your culture has to work through its growing pains to finally arrive at this place, these beautiful sets of villages in clusters around the planet.

Come, it’s time for us return to the Sacred Grove now.

Before Sarah knew it they were back in the Sacred Grove. She settled back into her body as if she had been in a dream. Yet part of her yearned to fly some more and visit more of these magical villages of the future. And soar with the eagle over the pristine valleys. It was so beautiful and peaceful. 

Mother: Sarah, I have just taken you to see the future. I need you to write about these villages. I need you to share what you have just seen so the two-leggeds of today can see that glimmer of potential and hope beyond the chaos that is rampant in your world today. I know it’s my world too, but your lives are so short. This is really your two-legged world that is cracking open to birth a new world. That is what your rather crazed wink in time is going through right now. My world, my planet is going to make it just fine through this very, very short-term bumpiness. I’m continuing to tweak some species with their next evolutionary phase. I’ll be working with the Thunderbeings and elementals. And the earthquakes and volcanoes. I’m fine, though taking a little bruising—it is true.

The hardest challenge for all of you today is finding hope in the midst of the turbulence. Sarah, this is one of the most important messages for you to share. You two-leggeds need the hope.

Know that each person who reads your messages, Sarah, will be seeded with this vision of hope. They will be the ones to take leadership in a variety of ways to help bring this future in reality. There will be many who won’t read your messages, and they won’t be seeded. But that is okay. Not everyone is meant to be seeded.

I will help you get these messages out. I’ll be working in mysterious ways to help you get these published and out into people’s hands. Don’t worry about that. I know you’ve never written a book before. Don’t worry.

One more thing … Sarah, this will be our last message for now. I need you to work on polishing all the messages I’ve given you and sending them off to be published. Once you’ve done that, there may be more messages later. I need you to stay focused on printing these up and spreading the seeds of hope for the future. The seeds of love and connection with me, for the future.

Sarah: Oh, Mother, please don’t stop the messages while I’m working on the book and polishing these other ones up! Please! I’ve come to love these visits with you in the Sacred Grove so much. I’ve loved Mr. Tufts and how he waits for me on the trail to bring me here and take me back. I can’t imagine stopping these meetings.

Mother: Sarah, I will always be with you. I’ve always been with you—since you were born, actually. Don’t worry. I’ll visit you in your dreams. There is a good chance that we’ll have more meetings here too. Mr. Tufts is not planning to retire from his job. He has already informed me of that. But right now you need to focus on getting this book out. Now, don’t cry. Remember, I will always be with you. Always.

Mother stood up and pulled Sarah to her and held her as Sarah started sobbing. She held Sarah for a long time until Sarah calmed down, exhaling softly into Mother’s chest for a while. Then she gently pulled back from Sarah and looked at her.

Mother: Sarah, I have just seeded you and healed your heart more deeply than before. You are a messenger for the future. For the unborn two-leggeds of the future. For all of my children of the future, four-legged children, six-legged, finned ones, winged ones, standing ones, all of them. Your work with these messages is important. Here, let me give you one more hug. Then I need to be off. But I will visit you in your dreams. I promise I will. Often.

Mother gave Sarah one more deep embrace and then touched her hand to Sarah’s heart again.

Mother: Such a beautiful pure soul you are, Sarah. I love you so much.

Okay, I’ve got to head off. Remember, I will be visiting you. So much love, so much love to you. And to all of my two-leggeds. So much love!

With a final twinkle in her eye, Mother turned, walked to the edge of the Sacred Grove and disappeared. Once again, Mr. Tufts magically appeared at Sarah’s feet to take her back to the trail in the forest. Sarah was surprised at how uplifted she felt. She thought she’d feel despairing about leaving Mother and the Sacred Grove, not knowing if she’d ever come back again. Instead, she felt buoyant and excited and started to brainstorm about how she would schedule her time to get the messages together quickly into book form.

Before she knew it she was at the trail. Mr. Tufts actually gave her a little wink before he turned and disappeared too.

Alone, Sarah hiked back to her car, pondering on her dreamtime and how she knew Mother would be visiting her there. Maybe Mother might even bring some more corny jokes to dreamtime. Sarah smiled at that thought. She’d look forward to more of Mother’s jokes—as bad as they could be—even in her dreams. Now on to the book!
