2019. The Unexpected, Like this Update

The ghost of New Year’s past says hi, how’s it going?

For many years Lightsmith offered New Year’s channelings. We invited our friends in spirit to lend their perspectives on how consciousness was shifting about and how the energies of change might affect us in the next cycle of our calendar year. I’m thinking the last such channeling was in January of 2014, which seems long, long ago.

In keeping with the theme posited on the subject line, this channeling was unexpected. Michele and I sat down yesterday (the 1st) with the intention of doing a little tune-in to get some insight on a family situation. Shortly after we began she told me someone was hooking up, and soon I was in a dialogue with a group of our old friends.

The message is not particularly long compared to some of our previous sessions that could run a couple hours or so. The session was initially focused on some personal information and suggestions for me and Michele, but being a New Year’s channeling I asked before we closed if they would speak a bit more about 2019. I am combining various bits of the session to give you a sense of what I heard about the coming year and our relationship to the changes ahead. I will leave in some of the parts that were personal to me, because they exemplify what may feel personal to some of you, too.

We’re all coming out of a long stretch of being in a particular structure within consciousness, and for many of us our challenges may not be so much what’s going on in the old world as it continues to dissolve, but learning to move beyond what we have known and then functioning within the new dimension.

Our old website should still be working in terms of being able to accept comments. If you click on the title of this post in your email you will be taken to the original on the website where you can leave a comment, if you wish. I have turned off moderation, so all comments should show as soon as posted.

Sounds like 2019 will be challenging for those who have yet to choose. Here’s to new adventures opening for those of us who have already decided to be part of the new dimension. We’re all on a learning curve now so, to quote a famous line, boldly go where no one has gone before.

Still hanging about,



The discussion begins:

Hello, Chris one. It’s been some time since we’ve been able to be in mutual discussion with you, so we are grateful for this opportunity.


We do too, visiting with our human friends, our embodied friends. And we enjoy connection, just as you do.


Perhaps. If this one is amenable.


We understand you have specific things that you have been wondering about, but perhaps we can get to specifics after a little bit of interconnectedness.


No, but they are marked, because we are in connection with those who do. And there is a kind of current that humanity uses the calendar to mark progress and mark unfolding, and it’s because of that we have some sense of it. We’re not always good at predicting it, in terms of time, but we get a sense of it.

There is much pressure in the field of consciousness, is there not.


Well, it has been foreseen, predicted, and it is now pressure time, where those who are resisting and who have had a great deal of conditioning within the illusion of duality are holding onto that illusion with every ounce of their mental capacity and willpower. And trying to force everyone to be in the same illusion with them, as if that is their prerogative to govern consciousness. That’s their belief, that’s what they are investing all of their millions and billions in, and they are assuming they can control consciousness, and they are using every means they can to do so.

This is the year where they will start to find that that is not the case. The reactions of those who have presumed, assumed and put all of their resources into that focus and have presumed that their victory is within sight…they will find that there is something that is not syncing up with what their presumed reality is. But they will react, and that reaction is somewhat unpredictable. Somewhat predictable given the repertoire of thought or presumption or conclusions that are within that particular structure, but somewhat unpredictable because the pressure that is building is creating unpredictability on all levels of consciousness, not just that level.

So, our suggestion for you is to stay very focused in what is your experience and what you know to be true and real. To not allow seduction of your mind, even to pull your attention off course, in a sense, during a day. And stay very present in what you know to be real, authentic, your own experience of what’s true, and honor that. And honor it wherever you find it. Honor it with whoever you find it in. Honor it, and allow that to continue to open, and open, and open, and grow and expand, and fill…particularly in relationships.

The new dimension is forming connections. It’s forming relationships and connections. We know that you, dear Chris one, do not open to connections much. You have withdrawn within the old story because it did not match who you were. So, you withdrew, and you were fine with a solitary experience with one or two people. But we are just giving you a heads up that in your heart, your being, it may be time to relax and open a bit more in the new dimension, and allow more interconnectedness. More relational connectedness, more real, mutual relationships.


It’s been opening. And this year, for those who are within this new dimension, they will find that there are more and more new field, interconnected kinds of experiences that actually will feel good, mutual, creative, supportive and interesting to you. Do you see?


So, we don’t have so much to say. It’s just a time of connection with us to you, you to us. You can ask anything you want, we can be in discussion about it. We basically just came to say hello, and to [say] let your heart warm up a little bit dear one.


Challenge is good!


[Discussion continues with this being a significant year of choice for many people, with reflection that many people will be choosing, whether consciously or not, how to proceed with their soul’s evolution.]

Consciousness is not a prerequisite to becoming part of the new dimension, but the choice is a prerequisite, you might say, whether it’s done fully with consciousness or whether there are circumstances and events that people are processing through and they come to a moment of recognition that “I choose life… I choose what’s real, I choose what’s deeper….that can be a choice in the midst of challenge, in the midst of something that takes them beyond where they’ve been, yes?

It doesn’t need to be a choice for a new dimension. They may not know that reference or that word, but they choose something that is authentic to them that anchors them into their body, their soul embodied, and then they start to hook up in that way. It is individual, it is truly individual, and that is part of this grand adventure. For those who have chosen, then the field is already moving you into a new creation, a new experience, a new embodiment. It is up to you, then, to stay present with that experience and not worry so much about what other people are choosing. Don’t think about that. It really is not up to you, and you have very little impact into those choices that others are making.

So, relax. Open to your own experience. Relax into being more present in who you are. How do you feel more alive, how do you feel more full and fulfilled, and happy and joyful within a body. How do you feel more whole and healthy and well-fed. Do you know?


That’s part of it, but that’s what you’ve seen and felt for a long time. What about the new things that are yet to unfold for you in your experience?


Of course not. But stay open to unfolding experiences beyond what you’ve known, beyond what’s familiar.


Of course you want it, and it will change, and it is changing. You have already within your experience the capacity to attract and create experience, new connections, new relationships, and new possibilities. If you look too far afield for change without realizing it’s happening within your own lived experience, your mind will only look at what is not happening rather than opening to and experiencing what is possible within your own experience.  That might be a new practice of sorts [chuckle].




To realize that human consciousness has been manipulated and controlled by duality, what you’ve called the patriarchy, for many many centuries. Many, many. And that all people born into a body, except perhaps a few young ones now embodied, have carried forward both the genetic imprint and the consciousness that you took on to transmute, to transform, and to shift within this experience of life. Or not.

Those that have been in particular control and manipulation of consciousness are continuing to ramp up how they are directing and infusing their consciousness into the large consciousness to control people, to control everything. That’s what has been the payoff for being in those positions. Yet, this year they will begin to find out that all of their concerted efforts are not actually bearing fruit in the way that they presumed it would, and that the consciousness that has been growing beneath the surface of what they have controlled is now starting to strengthen enough to surface and create other experiences that for them will be beyond their control. And for you, who have been waiting for some manifestation or materialization of the new dimension, you will say hurrah, hooray, there is something [that can now be witnessed].

There will be different reactions and responses to these various unfoldings, and yet as this unfolds remember that this is a year of great unpredictability. If you try to predict, you will be surprised, because you cannot. If anyone else makes a prediction, they too will be surprised. It’s a kind of living in the moment, in the experience, in the current, really dwelling deeper and deeper in your own living consciousness within the larger living consciousness, and actually becoming part of the new dimensional experience.

That’s what we would coach you to do, if we were with you to coach. We would coach you to do those things, because what’s going on in the surface world and for those who are being pushed to make choices…and there will be many pushed to make choices in this year…many, many…as we said, we don’t know whether those people who are pushed in their own experience will choose to be embodied in the new dimension, or choose to be disembodied for another experience to learn or to grow….there are many options, but basically it’s a choice to be part of a new creation within the body, or not. Within the earth, or not. Within the new dimensional experience, or not. Within the new frequencies that are part of the new dimensional experience, or not. It’s pretty much yes or no. There are no maybes.

And you know that already. Many of you have already made the choice, but some of you haven’t. Some of you are on the fence. It’s okay, but fence time is pretty much coming to an end this year.

Listen. Pay attention to what is opening within your experience, particularly new connections, new relationships, new weavings. The new dimension is working at this level of new connections, new weavings and new possibilities. Because of these weavings, pay attention. Open your hearts. If you are people who have been bound to relationships that you have felt you needed to be connected to because of certain loyalties or promises or whatever, some of those may not be connecting in the same way. But other new possibilities may open. New relationships may open. Pay attention to those experiences. Honor them, know them as your own inner guidance system.

This year is relational, and we can’t say that enough. If your hearts are not open to being honest and truthful where the mutual, true authentic connections are and where they are not, the realm of relationship will be part of your challenge this year. It’s the way it is at this moment in time in your life experiences, because that’s where the field is at, not because of you. It’s where the field is at. If you are part of the field, then that is next.


Each year is interesting in its own way, is it not?



A new frame that is fluid, not rigid like the old frames where you were a photofinisher, do you see? You had a name, you had an identity, it was something everyone recognized. It was embedded in a reality that was mutual. New frameworks, however, are not like that. You are not going to get a new identity that you can attach to that everyone recognizes, and that you can then “tally ho”. Yes? No! [laughter]. No, not that kind of thing. That can’t happen in the new creation.

So, there is a need to not desire it. Not to try to fill what was felt as a solid experience with something new that you presume will feel as solid. It won’t. It will not feel as solid. If security has come with a feeling of that kind of solidity and identity, it will not feel that way now. So, there is a bit of a challenge in loosening the presumption of solid and secure, and the sense of identity within an embodied experience.


Yes, perhaps. They have less attachment to it. They have less interest in it. So, yes, you inherited more of that and lived more of that, so it is a bit more of a challenge to release from it and realize that you can actually live very well without it, and have a marvelous, wonderful, full experience without feeling secure and solid in the same old way.

Fullness, fulfillment, and mutuality and a sort of collaborativeness, and a kind of fluidity within creation is much more the way the field works. You don’t need the old model, but there might be some longing for it [laughter], because you remember how it felt to be solid and secure within it. But, that won’t be replaced.


You made a choice [laughter]. You did it this way, and it is a bit more of a challenge. Transforming within the spirit dimension perhaps has some advantage, but there are advantages doing it the way you are doing it, too. Many advantages in terms of doing it while embodied while in your age. There needed to be a group of people who said they would do it that way in order to do it within the embodied, collective consciousness, here in this earth. They needed to do that. So, you said you would and here you are. And we are grateful that you are among those who chose that and have been diligent in your process of transforming and transmuting what has been yours to do. And to be supportive and helpful of the larger unfolding and transmutative experience that we’ve been privileged to work with you to do.

We certainly wish to support you in this unfolding for yourselves, and we hope that it is not overly taxing or challenging for you. And yet, those challenges that are yours to move you along, we cannot prevent either. Just as you cannot prevent for someone else.


Our pleasure, as usual and always. We will hopefully and perhaps connect once in awhile as it feels right. Relationally we are part of the new creation, too. We have part of creating with you, together with you, all of us and all of you. Our part in creating or weaving is more or less complete, but there is more yet to unfold as we and many of you together start to allow the initiating of a new creation.

New creation is not something about what people’s visions are of what it could be. It’s how things unfold, and every experience is a dynamic moment of creation that opens to another dynamic, creative expression or moment of creation. The culmination of many of those is perhaps an outcome that you can notice, name, and celebrate. But, that is only a moment, too. So that moment then precipitates other moments and other combinations of people, or other combinations of synchronous experiences, etc., etc.

There is no one place to grab hold of and say this is it, I have the truth. There is no such thing in the new dimension. But there are priceless moments, and the more you sink into the experience of those moments of created expression, experience, collaboration, mutuality, feeling, aliveness…all of the different things that are possible for embodied experience within each moment….THAT gets to be your experience. And then you’ll start to realize it isn’t about what you do, it isn’t about what you create, it isn’t about what you come up with, it isn’t about any new idea. It’s really about fully living these moments, relaxing into them, allowing them to infuse you and fill you and inform you and create you at the same time as whatever is being created is being created.

It’s quite lovely. Wondrous, actually.


You already are in it. You don’t have to look forward, just relax back and in. Back and down, into life, into body, into being. And enjoy. As much as you possibly can, allow enjoyment.

Sometimes we laugh at ourselves and you together. It’s like there has been way too much focus on what should be or the thought of what could be or what was coming. For those who still like to define or articulate that definition, it’s okay, but it’s so limited to what the experience is. Experience is far, far, far more and greater than any definition or thought, or presumption, or remembrance of what it felt like before. It’s about full embodiment, full experience, full awareness, fullness and fulfillment in every experience. And it’s different. One moment of fulfillment and experience will be different from the next unfolding. They’re different. And it isn’t about repeating, doing it again. Creation is not like that. It doesn’t repeat. It keeps growing, it keeps evolving, it keeps weaving, it keeps bringing together a different experience for the next experience.


Yes. So, until we meet again in this way. We are not far. We are in the experience with you, and we enjoy a dialogue once in awhile just as you do, perhaps. Know that we love you, we enjoy you, we are part of your moment today and you are part of ours, and we enjoy that.


Thank you, too.


Until again, yes. So it is.

A Lightsmith Surprise



I bet you weren’t expecting this in your inbox :)

I began this update once upon a time, and then completely lost track of where I saved it. Apparently some new material wanted to be included, making this version 2.0. The delay in posting turned out to be beneficial. Funny how that works.

So, how are you? That may seem like a rhetorical question, but not completely. At the end of this update I added a link to a message board where you can talk back. It’s a simple forum I haven’t used before, but we should be able to dialogue a bit.

It’s amazing how quickly time seems to be moving. It’s hard to believe that February 7th marked one year since we sold our building. Grief was a companion as we let go of our beautiful space, along with a sense of completion for lifetimes worth of work. Fading quickly are memories of processes, classes, processes, channelings, processes, clients, events and a few more processes. And never really being done with processes, Transition and its sibling Chaos moved in with us during 2017 as our energies focused on the changes in our lives. Besides grief, exhaustion paid a visit for several months as we decompressed from decades of intense immersion in a seemingly endless series of transformative events.

Through the past year, our outer experiences have reflected our inner work as we entered a phase of deconstruction and rebuilding at our home. Downsizing from our building was a challenge in terms of space needed for life. Our options became either to move or make changes to our home. We like our location and neighbors, and after dipping our toes into the waters of the wild housing market of last spring, we decided to stay put. Our old garage was demolished and replaced with a larger structure that includes more storage space and a second-level working studio for Michele. We’re still doing lots of organizing and decluttering, but we now have workable spaces for our needs. We also installed a solar panel system and new heating/cooling units in our home, so we’re thinking we will be here for awhile. But, given how quickly life can rearrange, I can only say we’ll be here until we’re not.

Also challenging last year was the loss of several friends, some Lightsmith people among them, and family members including my mother and one of Michele’s brothers-in-law. Some deaths were expected, some were not. In those moments Life takes over and one can only go with the flow until the rearrangements begin to gel.

So, it has been a full year with packing, storing, selling, moving, building, grieving, resting, unstoring, remodeling and some illness, including fatigue along with a couple rounds of the dreaded hacking cough topped off with some transformation flu. Oh, and Michele and I got married in the midst of it. What can I say? That was the current and we followed it. It’s what we do :)

On February 7th we decided to take a quiet moment of reflection in our living room about the year since leaving the Lightsmith building. We offered recognition and acknowledgement of what has been and how our lives continue to rearrange. We both had been feeling a loss of regular connection with friends in Spirit, especially since Michele had not channeled that group since 2016. We feel that those in Spirit are never far away, but I find that having a dialogue with them is a comforting experience. It’s the human part of me that likes that level of communication. You probably know where I’m going with this. “They” showed up for a little chat and brought along a large dose of personal acknowledgment and support for which Michele and I were very grateful. I was able to ask questions pertinent to our lives, but also had some discussion on the chaos of these times.

Warning: Reading ahead

I will share some of the dialogue with you. Perhaps you will find it helpful to have some additional perspective of what’s happening in this grand process of transformation still underway. But first, I want to share excerpts from a message we posted many years before we had the Lightsmith building. I don’t even remember how I put out messages back then, but probably as a page on an old version of our website. You are going to think this message sounds like something from this afternoon, but it’s actually from early 2001.

“There is a very strong contraction in the field right now. The contraction is not one where it is felt just because of winter or the physical experience, but it is a contraction of duality. Duality in the matrix itself is pulling itself into a great tension, rather like the poles are widening. As it does so, those people who are either on one side or the other feel a greater and greater emotional attachment to those places in their consciousness where they are attached to one side or the other,  with even greater tension with the pole. So there is an even greater relationship in their own unconscious with what has been projected outward and not owned. The nature of duality is a disowning of one aspect, projecting it, and then creating tension with it so there is a charge formed that becomes a substitute for life.”

“There is only one way out of the separation that is growing in terms of its polarity, and it is not through either of the poles. It is to just step out of that field completely. Most people who have so intimately identified themselves with this as life will see it as death to do this. It is actually a step into real life rather than the false illusionary substitute of life. It does at times feel that you are giving up what is known and familiar, but you are stepping into the new matrix which is already formed and is ready to receive anyone who wishes to step into it. It is not like it is just a step, it is moving beyond duality. It is saying ‘no more, I do not wish to do this, I do not wish to play in this arena of separation, of fighting, of drama, of duality where there is charge, but not life’.”

“Many will feel like they are losing their minds or going crazy. They will try to get even more control. These next years will be this drama. Those who have already left duality will not even be much affected by what is happening. Those within duality will feel as if their world is wrenching apart. This will continue. You have a number of years where this will be in transition.”


In human years we’ve each been at this project for a long time. Soul choices determine the timing of our transition from Duality to the New Field, so there is still variation in our experiences as the old structures continue to disintegrate.

And today…

Compare the 2001 message to what we received last month. Keep in mind the conversation was focused on me and Michele, but seems universal enough to share – especially among those of you connected with Lightsmith.

“As you and we talked about for many years, there would be a time when the old would begin to coalesce and collapse in upon itself, so to speak. And, it’s happening. It isn’t perhaps a pretty picture, but it is something that needs to occur if something new is to be born. There needs to be a time of reversal or collapse of what were the building blocks, the structures, the patterns, the illusions, and the myths of the old duality….the old patriarchy, the old experience of top down, mind over, etc. It’s time, it’s happening.”

“There’s a certain amount of grace infusing the field, particularly where people are receptive to it, to allow this experience to be more gentle without being so traumatic. Trauma is something that has been frozen in consciousness, and it has an effect. Fear and trauma freeze consciousness. In order to make this transition, trauma also needs to thaw and move and heal, and allow people to become more fluid and able to move beyond what has been frozen. So, there is a significant amount of grace and love interpenetrating your whole experience as a collective humanity, collective planetary experience. And it is not just from us, but from the great Mother that you live upon and within. This love and grace is mediating the process.”

“Those who are waking up now will begin to sense they are coming out of almost a schism within themselves. They may feel as if they have been living in an external world that does not touch or match their internal selves, that they have been giving energy and money and allegiance and loyalty to things that begin to taste sour inside. That kind of awakening is perhaps a little more difficult than the ones that you’ve gone through where you’ve chosen it because you had a sense of it. You’ve chosen it because you sensed that this was amiss, maybe even from childhood you’ve felt different, not akin to what was portrayed around you.”

“But those waking up now and in the next year or so have played the game, you might say. They were good students of duality. They were the achievers, they were the ones who made great strides…money, position, power, homes, life-styles, choices. For many of them it is very frightening as they start to feel this schism within themselves. Their lives that were infused with their life-force and energy start to become less and less fulfilling, more hollow, less satisfying, less workable, and it is more frightening to them. Remember, fear freezes, truly. So those who freeze for a bit hang on more tightly, defend more mightily, and protect what they perceive to be their lives. But they still have a feeling underneath that something is amiss, that something is cracking, that something is not in alignment.”

“That [sense of misalignment] will just grow. There is no turning back, there is no way to get around it. So, the current population that is in the process of what you call waking up are in a particular fear response and a particular holding response until they get further along in this process. Rather than judging them and making them bad for this part of their process, try to understand the experience, even if it’s different than what you’ve gone through. Do you have a sense? Try to understand that this schism is a scary place and that it is kind of a tearing apart from the inside to the outside.”

“They have less preparation, less consciousness. They’re not choosing to assist themselves in a way where they can change their minds and transform their consciousness. Not yet, anyway. Many of them will go through more and more disorientation. They’ll go through increasing amounts of fear and sometimes even terror leading to what is already happening…use and abuse of drugs, alcohol, or whatever can help them with their anxiety. Some of them will make it through this process, some of them will leave in the midst of this process, and some of them will hang on with their mighty wills for as long as they can.”

“And yet, this planet has already shifted beyond the point of no return, you might say. Much beyond it now. And there’s momentum moving through this process. It’s speeding up, and those who chose early on to move through this into the new dimension, you are in place where you can stand and open to receive, and draw from life more directly, and open to learning how to create more collaboratively and mutually…and open to how to be embodied in this new dimension. That’s your learning curve, and that is happening.”

“Sometimes you’ll be able to help one or two people, but you can’t break through the fear barriers while they’re holding on to them. It isn’t wise to break through anything for someone else, is it? So, there is a kind of break, you might say, from being a helper, being a supporter, being a teacher, being a guide, being a leader, being a mentor….partly because in the group that’s coming right now there are very few that are breaking through. Some are, the leading edge of them of course are going through this process. They will seek out support and healing, and they will start to look around for those who perhaps have a way to give perspective they have never considered before. But many of them are still in a place of great fear and holding on for dear life. So you can’t speak as you did for many years.”

“Your audience has changed. You can’t try to convince others. Basically there are those who are stirring, and the stirring is felt deeper within their souls. Their dreams will be more challenging. Their lives will become more challenged and challenging. If they seek solutions that are to keep them from waking up…drugs, alcohol, continued loyalty to particular ways of believing, and people, and leaders, and corporations and etc., they will perhaps not make it through this particular process of awakening. Some will.”

“There will be cracks and fissures that continue to occur in that old duality collective consciousness. Those fissures will continue to erupt rather unpredictably in ways that will take some people by surprise. Those fissures, those cracks will grow until there is a kind of breaking apart. Yes, there will be some people who will rise up at that time from within the new dimension with solutions, with offerings of things that will take the place of what is dissolving and cracking and falling apart.”

“Those places that are wise, that have enough people able to hear, to listen, to respond to, those places will start growing a new creation from within, a new experience that will affect many people, and also bring a kind of stepping stone to those who need to see something happening before they will let go. Some people won’t let go until they see something else. They need to see it. They can’t feel it because they’ve already numbed those places with all of the trauma and fear and that which keeps them bound. But when they see a new step, they may then be able to release a bit more from the old and gravitate toward something else that their friends, family and neighbors start to trust, and perhaps they can trust it, too.”

“So there are different levels of awakening and different levels of awareness. It looks very dualistic, and yet there are cracks that are happening, schisms, that are not as visible on the surface of consciousness right now. Try to not be angry with the process that is unfolding, or with the people that seem to be continuously (to you) feeling as if they are living a grand illusion that no longer has anything real within it. That may be true for you, how you see it. It isn’t true for how they see it. There is a kind of love and grace that when you sink fully into the new dimension, this beautiful new creation experience, your mind will not wander so much out to what’s going on there. Your mind will feel as if it becomes more attuned and then stimulated by what is coming into your own experience and your own creation.”

“You will find there are certain people you connect with, or certain opportunities that open you to a bit of creation. It might not be a big, long career, but a bit of creation that’s yours to do and there is a way that as you attend to those things you also draw more life up, you also draw more energy from the field, and it continues to inform you and in some ways transform you. Your level of transformation is different from others who are still at the level of trying to make a new choice. Your body is in transformation, your experience of how to be you embodied is in transformation, your way of being in relationships is in transformation. Your experience of who you are is in transformation, because you are already a part of something that is new to you and your soul that you’ve never experienced before while embodied.”

“So, breathe in, breathe out. Breathe in to the places that are disconnected and open to what is, kind of like you have a new form here in the field and you have an old plugin. They don’t connect. You’re shifting your inner ways, particularly of receiving. It’s as if your receivers are shifting. They have to, to take in the new.”

[Then, a comment specific to me, Chris – sharing because I know I’m not alone…]

“And you have not been good at receiving, dear one. You’ve been good at creating, and giving, and controlling, managing, being someone who is adept here, but not so much at receiving.” [Yup, tears]

“Receiving is not just about letting someone do something for you. Receiving is your capacity to be vulnerable, to be soft, to be receptive to what you don’t know, what you can’t know is coming. But your soul, your being, is very wise, all-knowing for you, and it might be the process that you’re in here that is connecting with your own wisdom, your own knowing, your own soul with the part of you that split from that or separated and didn’t trust that you would be loved, that you could receive and be received, that you could just be yourself without somehow making something to show people, to illustrate, to in a sense show that you are somehow capable and worthy of being connected with. Do you sense some of this?”

[Yes, I think it’s lifelong, from childhood on…]

“It’s lifetimes long. While embodied, it has been almost impossible to become as present in this world. Duality, the patriarchy, has had such a grip for so many lifetimes that many sensitive souls guarded themselves when they came in. They geared themselves to come in, you might say. Those guards have to come down. That is the part of you that keeps life from gifting you with all that your soul would find joyful and fulfilling. The new dimension is about joy, fulfillment on a personal level, personal embodiment. You haven’t had that for many, many, many lifetimes. So you’re not used to that in the earth. And yet it’s here. It’s possible, it’s now here, it’s opening to you and everyone who finds this connection to the new dimension and opens to it. It’s all here. Trust your soul to weave into this new dimension and life, and your consciousness joins that connection rather than consciousness dominating and not allowing connection. See, there’s a bit of a shift. And it really is just a bit of a shift. It’s not like you have to do tremendous amounts of work here. It’s a bit of a shift, though. Your version of reality, your version of you as how you sense yourself to be can shift and open to include more of the deep, wise, loving joyous presence being that you are.”

“You’re still on the leading edge, but there is a process that is part of that. So, surrender to it. It is a bit of surrender rather than a figuring out at this point. The field is there, your soul is here. Your mind wants to understand. Perhaps that needs to let go of trying to understand or trying to figure it out. Your mind may need to shift its attention a bit more so it’s not separate. And ask your soul to release the guarding. Ask your being to release any guarding. Yes there was pain, and loss, and grief that wasn’t fully understood. And often responsibility for that which was not fully your own. Yes, all of this has been part of your experience. But within that is your wise, beautiful, joyous creative nature that longs for connection with this wise, beautiful, creative dimension of creation so you can collaborate and play and lighten. Lighten, in a sense, and illuminate. And then talk and create…whatever you want to do with it.”

[So it’s not time for outward expressions?]

“You can always share your experience. That’s yours to share anywhere when it feels right. That’s always yours to share. It doesn’t mean it’s not time, it just means that you are in a process yet that is part of what your experience is right now in this moment, and as you let go and surrender more you will start to sense your way into a new experience. You can’t think your way in. You can’t figure out your way in. You can’t understand your way in. You can sense your way in, and that’s the only way in, unfortunately or fortunately depending on your perspective.”


“This year the schisms will widen, the cracks will open and the fear will probably get pretty big as that happens. But it is also opportunity for what comes thorough cracks, what comes through the schisms is all this repressed unconscious. You’ve started to see it happening, women, blacks, Native Americans, all peoples of the world who say NO, we are not going to live this way, this is not of life, and this is who we are and we’re not going away, etc., etc. But more will come, more schisms, more cracks and more of the deep repressed unconscious is surfacing this next year and the year after. So it will be quite intense. For those who want to watch it, for those who have the capacity to participate in it and perhaps offer alternatives when it is time, those people are here for that. They are already placed for that. That’s not your part [again, spoken to Chris but perhaps relevant to others].”

“It’s not your part. You’re not in the midst of the schism. You’re not in the midst of the breakdown. You’re over here opening into a new experience. You’re not retired. That’s not the term to use. But you are in a process of moving into a new collaborative, collective creation that you can’t participate in until you’re in it, until you’re not disconnected from it. So, it’s okay. The process is your own, and if we can be supportive we’re not far away. We’re here. We didn’t go away.”

“But, there is a sort of choice. The word surrender may not be something you like, but it’s akin to the release of the part of you that is afraid to really release or let go of its hold. Just like the people who have their hold out in the old story, you have a bit of a hold to your old way of being here. It’s not dissimilar. There’s some anxiety, fear, that attaches it. Yet fear is not real. It feels real, you can make it real, your body senses it because it senses and feels what you’re processing. And, the new dimension is calling to you. It’s present right here. The living field, Earth Mother, living intelligence, living light, all of the things we’ve spoken of, all the things you know. Your soul will go ‘Oh, hi, hello. Well of course this matches me. Of course this is where I belong’. It’s just the part that’s a bit afraid of letting go of a way of knowing how to be here, a way of being here that no longer really is very pleasant.”


More food for thought, eh? I wanted to share these perspectives to be helpful in relaxing out of reaction to all the craziness. The dissolution is underway, and for awhile it will get even crazier. I also wanted to say hi, and that we have wonderful memories of journeys we shared with you through the vehicle of Lightsmith. It really was something :)

The Message Board

I have set up a message board for you to connect and let us know what’s up with you and how you’re making it through the transition. Feel free to comment or dialogue. The board is not moderated, but it will be monitored and managed. Please be thoughtful in your comments. Use the link below to make a post. Add your email address if you’d like to be notified when someone adds something new.

Transition R Us,


P.S. Michele says Hi!







Lightsmith – The Form Dissolves

This is one of the last update emails you will receive from Lightsmith. We intend to remain connected, though the form will change. For this to be a year of new beginnings, the old must release. For us, that time has come. We are grateful for all that has been; your support, your friendship, your participation in extraordinary action within creation, your agreement to become who you are through a radical and deep process of personal transformation. Thank you.

A little information, and a few loose ends yet to be tied:

We are also grateful for the unique and beautiful building that has provided such great support for our many experiences these past 11 years. We are now in the process of selling this special property. Closing is expected to be very soon, probably February 7th. We have been hustling to pack and clear some very full spaces. Last weekend we had a garage sale and giveaway, which found new homes for many items. Much of the rest is going to charity.

If you have checked the Lightsmith website, you’ve found that only archives remain. Since Michele will continue to work with individual clients, we have left a link to her new website for information about where she is working and how to contact her. Another link is posted for the new website of Visible & Present.

Mailing list changes:

Our Lightsmith mailing list will be kept. Probably a new domain will be set up at some point, but for now we will use the list to notify you of any planetary events.

Michele is starting a new mailing list for people who want to receive notifications from her about her client work, classes or other special events she may offer. If interested, you will need to sign up on her new site, even if you’re already on the Lightsmith list. Out of respect for your choices, we are not transferring data between lists.

Visible & Present already has its own mailing list. If you not already on that list and wish to be, use the signup form on the Visible & Present website.

I am in the process of retiring my Lightsmith email address ( After 22 years of using this address I receive much junk mail and am on too many lists to easily purge. I will monitor for awhile, but please change your contact information for me to

Because many clients still have Michele’s Lightsmith email, she will keep that address active for awhile. But, she is asking people to begin using for future communication.

This week will be stunningly busy for us. We are happy to be closing on the sale of the building three weeks earlier than first planned, but a time crunch is upon us. We could use a little help. Several of you have offered to assist with final cleanup or other assistance. If you’re willing and available, we would be happy for some extra hands next Sunday, February 5th. We’ll plan to be around the building starting about 10am until done. I could also use some help mid-week to move boxes to storage and help get my big printer moved to my house. Please let me know if you’re available to lend a hand.

And last on this update is the planned memorial service for Jean Keating. If you missed the announcement on Facebook, here are the details:

The gathering place is the community room at Washburn Lofts in downtown Minneapolis. The address is 700 S 2nd St, 55401. The time is from 1 – 4pm. We invite you to celebrate the joy and beauty of Jean’s life. All family and friends are welcome, with special consideration for those who were unable to attend the October service in Wisconsin. Photos, paintings, and various other creations will be on display.

Come at any time during the hours noted above. There will be various refreshments available. Please invite others who may have an interest in attending. And because food is being provided, please send a quick note to Michele if you’re planning to attend (unnecessary if you responded on Facebook).

Going through changes as life rearranges,










Moving On, A Celebration

Right off the bat. That’s how energy seems to have gone into motion as we entered 2017. Although I’m writing from what I witness in my own experience, I’m usually never alone. For awhile last year I wondered if anything was ever going to feel like movement in the outer world. 2016 took us deep, yielding more clearing and release, but with a resulting clarification in a sense of self and a kind of turning toward a new direction, like we’re being re-aimed.

Re-aimed at what? No clue. For us, Lightsmith has wound down, we’re feeling moved in both inner and outer ways, and except for Michele’s plan to continue seeing clients little else is known. FYI, starting in February, Michele will be working two days a week out of an office in south Minneapolis near 38th and Grand. Specifics yet to come.

One of the few things I do know is that we have created an event for January 22nd to mark the welcome sense of movement, and to celebrate together yet more surrendering to the mystery.

Here’s information about the event on January 22nd as posted on our calendar:

At this special event on the 22nd we will reflect on the long adventure many of us have shared, and celebrate the transition out of an old story into the new openings of 2017. We also wish to gather in the Lightsmith building, acknowledging the structure that has provided a place where we could feel safe and supported to open and proceed through our many transformative processes these past 11 years.

We are dividing the day into three parts, with times being approximate.

1 – 2:30pm – A room-size “garage” sale.

We, of course, have many items we are taking with us or leaving with the building, but there is also much we’d like to move along to new homes. Please come early and dig through what we have out on tables downstairs. We will have a table or two of freebies, many items on a pay whatever you wish basis, and some will have an asking price. Included are CDs, electronics, weavings, candle holders, furniture, books and much more.

At 2:30 or so we will ask your help in resetting the room (take items to cars, box for delivery to ARC Value Village,  etc.) and putting up chairs and tables for gathering and eating.

2:45 – 3:30 – Gathering time to reflect

3:30 to finish – Pot Luck Meal


We would also like to share with you an interview with us that was created by Tim Miejan, editor of The Edge magazine. Besides reflection on the Lightsmith journey, Michele also shares some of her views on creating in the new field, and realizations gleaned from recent experiences dealing with the passing of some Lightsmith friends and compatriots.

The Article is titled End of an Era: A Conversation with Lightsmith’s Michele Mayama and Chris LaFontaine. Our thanks to Tim for initiating the interview. We were happy to have an opportunity to share more about our life’s journeys, especially with those who weren’t always sure what we were up to :)

An edited version of the interview is in the January, 2017 printed edition of The Edge, but the online version linked above is complete.

We hope you’ll be able to join us on Sunday, the 22nd. Bring your favorite dish to share, and let’s make it a moment to remember.





Solstice Event Tuesday, Save January 22nd

Solstice on Tuesday

Our Winter Solstice Planetary Event is Tuesday, December 20th at 7pm central time. You can join us in person, by phone, or by internet stream. The information you need to connect is on the calendar listing. You can also check there for any last-minute changes.

A Last Gathering Pot Luck Meal and Garage Sale

Sunday, January 22nd from 2-5pm. At the moment it appears that this event will be our last in the Lightsmith Building. We are combining a pot luck meal, an indoor garage sale, and an opportunity to gather together one more time. We’d like to have a chance to share stories and break some bread. We also have many things we don’t wish to pack or move, so we’ll have them out for sale on a pay-what-you-will basis.

Tentative schedule:

2-3pm – browse and such
3-4pm – reminisce with us
4-5pm – share some food

Or all at once :)

Check the calendar listing for any changes or updates prior to the event.




During a Thanksgiving holiday walk, I was appreciating those of you who have been such an integral part of our lives during these past many years. You have been beside us, experiencing the many challenges of deep transformation, radical change and life rearrangement. Some of you were long-term compatriots, some of you showed up to trigger a process or two, and some of you crossed our path only once. All have been part of a larger plan, one grander and more complex than any of us consciously knew.

In retrospect, it was probably good we didn’t know what was ahead when we began the experiment called Lightsmith. I’ve observed more than once that we humans tend to introduce confusion when we have a little bit of information and think we know more than we do. I learned, eventually, that our part was not about teaching some new age theory. We had work to do.

Our job was to simultaneously dismantle non-physical structures of consciousness while assisting the evolution of their replacements. And that, I am quite sure, is a coherent sentence only to those of us who have lived it. As surrogates for the whole, we each contributed by taking ourselves apart and restructuring the pieces into a new organizational model. As it turned out, that process was even less fun than it sounds.

I credit Michele with making our decades-long adventure relatively comfortable. Relatively is the obvious qualifier, but oy, it coulda been worse. What she continuously demonstrated is that when entering the mystery, the first step is to listen. If nothing else, I hope that bit of training has finally taken hold in my system as we now move beyond that challenging, transformational phase. I’m thinking that listening first is also key to navigating the new creation, so my practice continues.

And transition at Lightsmith also continues. Our events are wound down (except for Visible & Present), our building is up for sale, our futures are less clear than ever, and we’re in a phase of global chaos that I suspect all of us view with some degree of unease. As for interfacing with the meltdown, the message has always been to engage as little as possible unless you feel something is yours to do. The training this past year has been to stay in alignment with the core of self while events in the world attempt to pull from every direction.

The Earth Mother has given assurance that all is well, even as many events are yet to unfold. At every turn of events she has simply said to have no fear. I have taken her assurance to heart, and stand in a place of confidence that she is fully in charge of moving us beyond the established order that is so blatantly desperate to maintain its grip. I offer the same assurance. Keep in mind that this time of chaos has always been predicted, and that breakdown is part of the process of transformation. Our work together has born fruit. Ignore the gnashing of teeth, your choice has been made.

There are also other transitions we’d like you to know about. We are sad to report the recent deaths of two people known to many in the Lightsmith community:

Jean Keating

Jean died unexpectedly on October 16th. Although her family held a visitation and funeral service in Wisconsin on October 21st, Michele and friends are creating a memorial gathering for Jean in Minneapolis. This informal event will be on Saturday, February 11th, from 1-4pm at the Washburn Lofts community room at 700 S 2nd St in Minneapolis. On display will be some of Jean’s artwork. This is an opportunity to visit with Lightsmith folks and other people who loved Jean from different circles in the Twin Cities area.

Juanita Huseby

Juanita died this past Sunday, November 27th, after a long illness. Her funeral service will be this coming Saturday, December 3rd, at Lakewood Cemetery Chapel in Minneapolis. Visitation begins at 9am followed by a service at 10.

And, it looks like we’re still here for at least one more planetary event. The Winter Solstice gathering will be on Tuesday, December 20th at 7pm central. We are still set up for video streaming, so you can join us in person, by phone, or by internet stream. Check the calendar listing for login information.

The other remaining event on the calendar for 2016 is a Vibrational Jewelry-making Class for people who have been typed through Visible & Present or In Your Element.

From Michele: “Using numerology, semi-precious stones, and a process of impressing intention, it is possible to create a necklace that will hold and vibrate a specific intention that will magnify it within your field. Similar to wearing a talisman or sacred symbolic object, these pieces are created to support you as you attract and consciously create the experiences of your life. And they can be comprised of stones that are in colors within your vibrational palette so you can enjoy wearing it often and with different outfits.”

More helpful details and sign-up information on the calendar listing.

My intention had been to write a bit more often, but I have found it challenging with the field so unstable. Some days it’s hard to focus on almost anything, and it’s just been one day at a time, and one foot in front of the other. This really is the moment to incorporate all that we have learned and become over these past many years. We are shifting frequencies at an accelerating rate, and the rate of breakdown follows right along. Perhaps we’re at the stage where we’re in the world, but we don’t have to be of it. Or at least partly so.

Do not let the false reality hold your mind hostage. Do not feel you have to fix all the wrongs of the world. Most things are not calling to be fixed, they are either transforming or dissolving. Move only when you feel inspired to do so. Take comfort in knowing that the New Field is expanding as quickly as the old disappears. Choose what you allow into your awareness. Proceed with your life. Keep things simple.

And above all, know that the Earth Mother gets the last word.

Still here,






Upcoming Events, Earth Mother Reflections


Welcome to mid-September. Yeah, already.

Perhaps like many of you, Lightsmith is in a process of moving past its present form. Moment to moment is how the flow goes these days, and some of those moments are events that still remain on our calendar. Here’s a reminder of what’s just ahead, and then some reflections on our recent session with the Earth Mother.

Discovery Process One: Authentication This Saturday, September 17th, from 10am-5pm. This is where your Visible and Present journey begins. A couple spaces just opened, so Michele asked me to let you know that you can still join the group last minute. Contact Michele to register. 651-224-4451 or

Equinox, a planetary event next Thursday, September 22nd, at 7pm central.  If you can’t join us in person, you can connect by video streaming or phone using the link provided on the calendar listing.

Visible & Present Clothing Exchange Sunday, October 2nd, 3-5:30pm. This is for people who have previously been typed by Michele in a Visible & Present or In Your Element classes.

What I have to say now is meant without any intended hype. Last Saturday was the first of a two-part event with the Earth Mother. I will share a few highlights, but words can not possibly give any sense of the actual energetic shifts she catalyzed in the DNA and cells of the participants. The experiences were visceral and profoundly affecting. The vibrational language she uses works directly with the body, and  both Michele and I are still feeling the effects as cells vibrate and deep releasing continues.

She spoke of the concept of home as a place where you can relax, open to receive, replenish, and be at peace without fear. She said that home needs to be a place where you can feel as if everything you need is present. Then she said “it is time for us to have the experience of home, our body’s home, here on this planet, for all who are choosing to join the next dance here”.

This bit of the channeling is telling:

“You cannot fully embody your great being, your spirit, if your physical body vibrates and holds a level of density that will not allow fusion. The more of you who are here more fully….I’ll say more fully, because fully can take some time….but more fully….in these months, this time….the more momentum that you and I and all will build for a sweeping and a clearing that will start. You will know, you will sense, you will feel when it begins. And consciousness that has not been able to choose will not be able to stay and go forward. This has been prophesied. This has been forewarned, you might say, not because of fear just a little bit of hey, wake up, time is limited.”

“Can you tell the difference right now between those who are choosing life and love and those who are pre-celebrating through arrogance their domination of the earth. Can you tell? Those who are stepping out of the shadows and saying we are in control. It is interesting, is it not, to your conscious mind, to observe the choices being made now? Is it not interesting to observe? Is it not in some ways what you’ve been preparing for, is that final choice? That’s where we are, final choice.”

“You can choose with your conscious mind, but I’m asking you today to choose with you bodies. Choose with your bodies. Let your bodies choose to release that which inhibits full fusion. Can your bodies choose this with you? Can you allow your bodies to feel me, to open to me, to trust me to create home, a true viable home for all to relax into, replenish, create and celebrate life together.”

If you’re like me, you may have wondered how things could change given the arrogance, power and control some beings so blatantly display. We have again been reassured that those who have chosen against life and love cannot and will not remain as part of earth. That was the message in our 1994 channeling A Choice for Love, and the next steps to making that a reality are apparently about to commence.

No more fear. Release. Trust. Be here.

If you wish, you can still experience the many additional messages and the personal, powerful process the Earth Mother has offered. The recording from part one is now available, and you can catch up on your own timing. The important piece is to do part one before part two, and give yourself some time in-between. If part two is anywhere near as potent as part one, it would be very difficult to manage the transitions without adequate time to integrate the shifts from part one before continuing.

Here’s what you do: Go to the calendar page for part one and sign up using the link provided. I will then send you a download link for the first part. Contact me if any questions.

Full speed ahead,














Lightsmith’s Last Hurrah

It is time. Or maybe the end of time. Our original need to exist has completed, our raison d’être fulfilled. We have assisted those of Spirit and Earth to accomplish what was agreed upon eons ago. We have stayed the course, we have moved as directed, we have done our work, we have given 100% to the plan. And so have you, which is why you understand what is coming to a close.

Our finale, so to speak, is the upcoming two-part event with the Earth Mother beginning next Saturday, September 10th, followed by part two on Saturday, October 8th. My sense is that some large movement is just on the horizon, and she will be working to help prepare us, making sure we are ready for the shifts up ahead. If you have come this far with us and feel ready to proceed, I invite you to join us for what may be the last event of its kind. I can’t think of a better ending than an Earth Mother process shared with all of you. Many of you have already signed up, and we will make room for all who are interested. Check the calendar for more information about how to sign up if you are at a distance. No pre-registration is necessary if you are coming in person.

Perhaps the first large change for us is that we are putting the Lightsmith building up for sale. If you’ve been to the building, you know what a gem it is. We do feel the time is right for this transition, and without events and classes to support the expense we have to let it go. If you feel called to explore the idea of having your own building, please contact me. Also, if you know a good commercial real estate agent, please send them our direction.

As the year winds down, here is what’s up for us:

Michele will continue offering individual sessions by phone and in person. Location will change at some point.

Some commentary and other updates are likely to continue arriving at your inbox. We’re not disappearing, as far as we know :)

Visible & Present will continue on its current schedule through the fall. Future plans will be announced. If you’ve been putting off this adventure, now would be the time to commit. Discovery Process One – Authentication is soon upon us on Saturday, September 17th. See the website or calendar listing for more information. Please pre-register with Michele. Contact her by email or call 651-224-4451. FYI, there are currently 3 spots open.

Here’s where I will sign off for now. Michele has a special contribution to this update that you can read below.

Still I scribe,



From Michele:

To Ed: Gratitude and Good-bye  

Ed Stone died last week. He was my partner in life when I became a channel, and if it were not for Ed’s presence I would not have opened that capacity to channel or continued to use it. Ed showed up about the time I was giving up, complete with cancer, dreams of dying, and an emotional log jam. He told me I didn’t have to die and was the first person to tell me of reincarnation and meditation. Reincarnation immediately explained a number of mysteries in my life and helped me to see life’s continuum. Eventually, meditation led to channeling.

Long story short, I did not choose to become a channel. It was Ed who recognized the voice coming though my meditative writing as guidance beyond my conscious knowing, and he was very excited to question and learn and record it all. Ed initiated conversations and the Spirit Teachers taught. They taught me about the energy body, the causal plane of creation, and how to pay attention and listen to the soul of people and the consciousness in all life. They taught Ed and then others about the big picture of what has been unfolding here on Earth and offered perspective, guidance, and experiential processes to heal and transform lifetimes of constriction, trauma, and fear. “Love it all!” was one of their first lessons.

So Ed and I started “The Whole Course”, a small newsletter of channeled material, commentary, and stories. It was at that time that our son Markael was born, an unexpected but joyful presence whose love has been healing to us both. We lived quietly, tucked away in the Minnesota River Valley with little outside contact. While there, my capacity to channel evolved to be able to merge with a greater variety of Spirit Beings than the initial group of teachers. People found out about the channeling and I began to travel, meeting with groups around the state, with Ed often staying home with Mark. But he always transcribed the sessions, learning what he could and sharing it with others.

Eventually my path took me beyond the valley and Ed, which he never fully understood. I hope he can see and understand now. That path lead to meeting Chris, the formation of Lightsmith, and a whole new chapter. But what opened with Ed nearly 34 years ago is now ending as he leaves. My planetary work bringing through the Beings in Spirit completed last February and I am sensing the same coming soon with the planetary work that comes through my merger with the Earth Mother. I hope to continue a personal relationship with them and I know they know I am available if needed. Ed’s passing now seems synchronized with the closure of this life I never consciously chose but grew to cherish and love. Thank you Ed, you are now free to merge within the Love and Divine Union you searched for throughout your life. I love you, and good bye for now.

For those of you who knew Ed and are interested in details of his memorial on Sept. 18th, please contact me.


What is next? That is still unknown. I have been through the death and rebirth process three previous times in this body. This time the process has been exponentially more gentle and my trust in the flow and timing more solid. I feel some sadness as we prepare to release the building that has been home to Lightsmith these past 11 years. This solid red brick servant who sits on a ley line has been the perfect place to anchor all the downloads into the planetary grid and collective consciousness. The Fusion process that birthed the Fifth Dimension is complete…Light is now merged within Life, Heaven within Earth a reality. Thank you dear Humboldt building….you have supported and served us well!

With and within Love,




You Cannot Avoid the Void


It’s weird. On one hand it seems there is much ado about everything. On the other it seems there is not much ado about anything. There is compelling drama as the old reality melts down into chaos, yet there is immersion into the pregnant stillness of a world yet unknown. And impatient frustration reigns as we navigate between them.

We’re tested in every moment these days. The old teaching is that where attention goes, energy flows. As a creator being, where are you choosing to focus your attention? The death throes of Duality generate crises that beckon in a thousand ways, like enchanting Sirens luring sailors to shipwreck on the rocks. One minute of feeding the old system by entering a polarity and proudly justifying your position is a minute still bound within that system. The only way out is out. By awareness and choice.

As long as we are here, we’re still going to be active in the world, perhaps with more awareness than ever. We can be supportive of something without polarizing against what appears to be its opposite. Therein lie the practices of discernment and detachment.

The title of this comment reflects what I’ve been feeling over much of this year. I have found the transition between worlds to be challenging. The impatience and frustration grows from being clear that the old ways of being here don’t feel good and no longer actually work, while I find few places of comfort in the vastness of the unknown. This is the void, the in-between place. I find it unpleasant.

The sense of never fitting into the old reality has only become more evident, and it’s a bit shocking sometimes to realize how diligently I tried. At the same time, most of what has been known is disappearing with a curious process of showing its backside before being consumed by the flames of change. Everything stored or disowned is being released out of the unconscious. Individually, we call it healing. Collectively we call it transformation. It’s not always pretty or comfortable, if ever.


I’ve never looked forward more to a session with the Earth Mother than the two-part event lining up for September and October. This year we are being worked with to stay in synchronization with the Earth Mother as she goes through her dimensional transition. We have no information about the focus of the event, but she was clear that we needed to set up two interdependent parts with some time between, probably for integration and adjustments.

Part one is scheduled for Saturday, September 10th. Part two will follow on October 8th, both are on the second Saturdays of each month. As usual, we will be streaming by internet and phone for those who cannot attend in person. Both event parts will be available by recording if you cannot participate at the time. Please note that part one needs to be completed before part two.

If you will be joining us at a distance, sign up using the link on the calendar listing for September. Note that your payment of $296 is for both months. If you are attending in person, we will charge you for both days on the first event in September. If you will miss one or both days, sign up on the calendar and recordings will be mailed soon after the event(s).

Login information for everyone signed up in advance will be sent out the week prior to the September date.


And, just in time for some additional transformation: Visible and Present is gearing up for its fall series. Many of you preferred to skip the sessions during the busy spring and summer dates, so here’s the opportunity to start or continue your V&P journey with the wardrobe changes of fall.

For those of you who don’t know, Visible & Present is a series of discovery processes designed to help you shift your external presentation to match your inner vibrational essence. Perhaps the series appears to be about clothing, but you will be pleasantly surprised, and maybe a little bit challenged to find out what it really feels like to be authentically visible and present. Expert guidance to your new expression will be provided by Michele and company.

There are three Discovery Processes.

Discovery Process One: Authentication is scheduled for Saturday, September 17th from 10am to 5pm. This is where you begin.

Discovery Process Two: Magnification will be held on October 22nd.

Discovery Process Three: Integration will be on November 19th.

You can read more about the workshops on our website.

We suggest making every effort to attend the workshops if you feel called to participate. We don’t know for sure right now, but these could be the only times these primary workshops are scheduled for the next year.

Two-Part Event with Earth Mother, September and October

This is a save-the-dates notice. The Earth Mother returns with another process to assist us to move in synchronization with her. We know nothing of the content so far, and may not until the event begins and we are then informed. Perhaps I’ll know more later and will share on a future update. Then again, maybe not. To be honest, I don’t think that matters to those of you who will be drawn to participate. You’re all used to stepping into the unknown with us by now :)

One thing clear about this event is that there will be two parts, the first on Saturday, September 10th, and the second on Saturday, October 8th. Another is that both parts are required for the process, and the first must be completed before the second is attempted.

The cost for this event is $296. That’s for both parts, not each. We will be offering downloads of the sessions if you can’t make the dates, but it feels that the month interval is important. My educated guess is that part one of the process will require some adjustment and integration before proceeding to part two, so if you’re working with recordings try to maintain the timing.

Use the sign-up link on one of the calendar listings if you plan to join us by internet stream or phone, or if you will only be doing the recordings.

I was very happy when Michele told me this session was arranging. I miss the regular interaction with the many great beings we have worked with, and there is always a sense of anticipation, if not relief, when I know I can touch in a little more directly. I also look forward to any insights that are offered. With the acceleration of social issues surfacing and the peculiar election season, I’ll be happy to have a little input from the Great Earth Mother about what’s up.

Interesting times,
