Holistic Nutrition Helps Integrate The Intense Energy Field

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
the energy field of yesterdays Cancer New Moon and total solar eclipse can trigger in may humans in the collective the important question if authentic holistic ways of nutrition can help us feel more in charge of our health. Many people may feel the need right now to take a closer look how that can look like. On our united path to awakening into higher vibrations, our physical body is the individual vessel we have in order to experience the magic of being a human on planet earth. In my article “The Alchemy of Conscious Breathing – The Golden Path of Ascension” I shared some insides about the importance of raising the awareness for an inner connection to our breathing pattern and rhythm. As our breath is an important part within the nutrition circle for us.

Another important part of our food is to actively take in the cosmic energies of divine guidance, that are constantly having an impact on our life. In the article “7 Everyday Life Activities – That Also Are Meditations“, I shared how even people who are not used to quiet sitting meditations or other calming techniques, can make an easy connection to this tool of opening our mind to the universal flow.
Looking at the picture below you will find that another factor is our active conscious relationship with the beauty and power of the sunlight, which is also reflected in our inner relationship to the many divine rays of the different colors in our souls.

O Sunlight! The most precious gold to be found on Earth.

Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun which you could never get from reading books on astronomy. These pure and spontaneous pleasures are ‘patches of Godlight’ in the woods of our experience.

Fresh, at this state of GMO development on planet earth, in best case organic, and with lots of attention prepared meals are a big help too.

The keys to health and weight-loss: stress reduction, sleep, deep breathing, clean water, complete nutrition, sunshine, walking, stretching, meditation, love, community, laughter, dreams, perseverance, purpose, humility, action.

Imagine that the world had created a new ‘dream product’ to feed and immunize everyone born on earth. Imagine also that it was available everywhere, required no storage or delivery, and helped mothers plan their families and reduce the risk of cancer. Then imagine that the world refused to use it.

Think the tree that bears nutrition:
though the fruits are picked,
the plant maintains fruition.
So give all the love you have.
Do not hold any in reserve.
What is given is not lost;
it shall return.
Kamand Kojouri

The amount of cosmic energy we can exchange with life on a daily basis, is connected to how much we practice to be aware of our conscious breathing tool and how open our inner channel is. This opening can be achieved thru self-examination, meditation, relaxation, Yoga and many other techniques. And of course we are able to nurture ourselves thru a loving contact with the earth self and the electromagnetic field that is radiating from our planet, up to the beings standing on it.

Trees emit a wide variety of electromagnetic radiation and it is regarded as healthy to live in a natural area that is surrounded by trees due to these beneficial emissions to human health.
Steven Magee

Our emotions affect the atmosphere around us, and other people, because emotions influence the electromagnetic field our heart emits.
Sam Owen

Please note my friends, working with this prayer has a direct impact of the DNA of your physical body! Remember, our DNA is transforming to 12Strands within the light body process! You might feel when the elements in the physical body are downloading new vibrations of the divine blueprint for humanity on to planet earth. That always takes a bit of time and can create one or the other confusion on the way. Physical trouble can appear like: Headaches, backaches, neck pains, kidney pains, having a cold, flu symptoms, digestive problems, muscular spasms or cramps, chest pains.

Holistic Nutrition For The Awakening Process

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
last weeks Cancer New Moon energy field has brought up important questions for the human collective about authentic holistic ways of nutrition for human beings, and many people felt the need to take a closer look how it truly works. On our united path to awakening into higher vibrations, our physical body is the individual vessel we have in order to experience the magic of being a human on planet earth.

Me, The Mayan Calender And Alice In Wonderland

esiby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
some of you might remember the post I shared to celebrate my last birthday with all of you, called “My Collection Of Awakening Experiences Continues No III“. In this post I mentioned to you that I had the pleasure to receive a reading of my personal Maya Calender interpretation from a dear new friend of mine, the amazing Austrian artist Gerhild Resch. She has the incredible ability to channel in a shamanic journey setting, how the Nawales (the different qualities of ones inner powers) are feeling and if they are in need of any adaptations. I told you, that I would happily be report about the incredible details she unveiled to me in another post, so here we are with more insides to my world.

For a better understanding, allow me to share very simple and basic details about the calender work of the Mayan civilization, which helps us cultivating an understanding for the rhythms and cycles of the divine vibrations that we are caring within our character. A reading of the human being in its divine qualities, is usually designed as a cross of energies. The Mayan Cross is comprised of five archetypal energies – the are called Nawales, day signs or sometimes also known as day lords.
This day signs are glyphs and numerals from the Mayan sacred calendar (the Tzolkin), which represent our cosmic blueprint, our energetic signature vibration, also explained as the personal Tree of Life. The guidance of the Mayan calendar provides us with insides in our personal divine plan, and helps us align our daily actions with this divine cosmic inner forces.
The system of the Mayan calender is quite a complex one and would by far extend the space we have right now for details, but please read into it if you are interested now, there is so much to gain when we start understanding our own energies as in relationship with external rhythms and cycles of timing.

My personal center quality is that of E or EB, on the Galactic Tone of 9. That is the power of people designed to create roads and pathways, that others cant come up with, so they can go back and share their insides with the world. A job, I do believe to cover pretty well in my life right now ;-).eHere is what Hilda found, when diving into my internal world of Mayan powers – in her original words (translated from German to English by me):
“I am arriving in the center of a flower. This flower feels like it is a very personal and private little world in its own rights. The flower starts growing, I am just there watching it gain in size for a while; to than transform into a building – a beautiful castle. Where ever I am looking, there are fairy tail beings walking thru the different rooms of the building. A cat is about to clime the walls.
I walk into a lovely setting and over a gigantic stairway, which ends up in a magical spot in nature. Everywhere there are even more fairy tail beings, gnomes, dwarfs, ferries. Everything is very colorful, everyone is having fun and all are in a peaceful state of behavior with another.
I am looking up at the walls of the castle and realize that it has the shape of a tulip flower. On the very top of the flowers blossom, there is a half angel, half bird like being – sitting there to guard the space. While I am still taking in the scenario, the guardian comes flying down over my head, gently lifts me up, and takes me into the crown of a tree. Immediately is clear – this is the tree of the ancestor connections.

The branches are full of creatively decorated bird houses. The energy is happy and extremely relaxed. Everything is created in a jolly vibration. Lots of flowers are growing from the trees, some of them even from the ground into heaven. I discover a young woman (she might be called Isabel), who is sitting with relaxed tangling legs on a high, big old branch of the center tree and enjoys the scenery. She is wearing a perfectly white dress and moves within the trees as safe as a monkey would (my Chinese astrological sign). She hands over to me – a present for you!
The scenery is suddenly changing into the world of Kame – the death. The colors are gone, the feeling is that of a mystical and magical space, now in the shadows of the big majestic trees. Under the tree of the ancestors there is a path unveiling and I follow it without doubt further into the woods.
Wondering along I come to a gigantic, impressive door, all made of obsidian crystal. I pass the gate, come to a wide open space and realize – I am standing in an obsidian knife production. Where ever you look, the floor is covered with splinter from the work, and every being passing by – gets handed their own personal obsidian knife. I also got one ;-)!
Happily I continue walking, just to arrive at a lovely pond full of people. Its summer there, its sunny, its colorful and its funny. There are families gathering, children are playing; their laughter mixing with the happy dog barking and splashing sounds from the ones out for a swim. There are balloons, food and drinks; and it all feels like a very real scene from everyday life. The cat – which is representing the center energy E – is again there, playing with the children; closing the circle of love. Its a extremely healthy, productive, active, delightful, joyful and over all life embracing world. Simply beautiful!”ebDear Ones, when my friend came by to bless me with this report of what she had found my qualities to feel, her explanations started with telling me that she had ever only shared a world like mine for one time before in all of her long experience, and that was in a reading she provided for a child. In her words, the space she was invited to discover in my sacred heart, was that of “Alice in Wonderland” ;-), I am sure by now you clearly can see why ;-). My friends, I hope this is inspiration for you, and that you feel invited now to make your inner world a place truly worthy to be seen as a representative of the Golden Age of Aquarius too.
Love and Magical Blessings!

Actively Awakening To Our Stellar Body Awareness

Aby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
over this first six month of the year 2016, we have more than ever before collectively felt the exhilaration in the evolution process of human life on planet earth. Remember the Golden Ratio or as a pre-stage, the Fibonacci spiral? These are the forces that demand the movement of our collective and individual awakening path. In this spirals, there is a point where the shell pattern extends and the circles are getting much wider than before.
And as our feeling for time and space on planet earth is
deeply connected with the rhythms and cycles of life, this expansion feels like time has speed up more than we ever saw before. A very helpful universal guidance, that more and more people feel sensitive to now, are the often very high vibrating stellar events we collectively experience these days. In order to be even more effective in the co-creation with this influences, it helps to remind our physical body of its stellar origin, so we can release energies from the fearful lower bodies. 

When ever it was, how ever it came, we all started of somewhere as a simple stellar frequency of dancing light codes and individual divine sound. Till we developed the desire to dropped down into manifestation as physical beings. For a life on planet earth, that is helpful to know, and the more we remember on vibrational level, the more inner freedom we feel to live the life we are intended to live. We can develop the ability to detached  from the fear of death – that our physical body is constantly aware of, and can use the higher vibrating abilities of the physicals body sensory-self, to hear even more of our inner guidance’s clear vibration, to hear the highways of sound and light dancing in the universe and as well learn to detect the unconscious vibrations we ourselves and others send out. Abilities worth developing! So practice, practice practice!!! This Stellar Radiance Evocation can take you to the other side of the rainbow – from fear to faith!

Dear Ones, a personal message, New Beginnings will be closed from June 1st till September 4th! In this time I will be posting my articles rather sporadically, expecting to pick up the daily service after that period! If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a Facebook group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!!

Supporting Our Children To Develop Faith For Their Life Path

sDear Friends,
over the last two days I shared in the posts “planting a seed of meditation and inner communion in our children” and “introducing our children to authentic spiritual expression“, steps how to talk to the next generation about prayer, meditation and developing an internal connection to the higher self. Today we are talking about purity to our path and acting on the guidelines we share.
I hope this trilogy of expects has provided lots of loving guidance, valuable insides and helpful tools for you. May they serve you well in your attempt to support your children on their path of developing a spiritual practice for themselves.
Love and Blessings!

If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!! Over time I might not be able to put in the FB time, if it does not lead to what it is about – SPREADING THE WORD ;-)!

Teaching our children and teenagers to perform obligatory prayers, is a delicate and often stressful matter for families. What is the divine guidance on the matter? When and how is it best done? Parenting expert Hina Khan-Mukhtar sheds some light.

6) “Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.” – Rumi
For some kids, positive sensory associations are very important in creating an attachment to prayer. From a young age, my boys have taken great pride in dressing up for Jumah (Friday) prayers in their best clothes, wearing their best perfume and their best kufis (prayer hats). We always set out their most special clothes for the most special of days, and they feel noble and dignified as they wash and dress for going to the mosque on Friday afternoons. I know of one mom who created a magical “prayer corner” in her daughter’s bedroom, complete with a lace canopy that cascaded down over an intricately embroidered prayer mat and an ornate table that held a beautifully designed Quran and crystal prayer beads. Other parents regularly light sweetly scented incense or candles during prayer time in the home. One mother used to wear a silk prayer gown stamped with gold and silver block print for her night prayers; her children sometimes have compared her to a princess, other times to an angel. These are examples of kids who saw, heard, smelled, and tasted nothing but beauty and elegance when it came to prayer in their homes.l7) Aspire to be what you want them to be.
No one recognizes hypocrisy quicker than a child. The truth of the matter is that you can encourage and teach a child to pray all you want, but if you’re not going to pray, the chances are highly likely that he/she’s not going to pray either. And letting a child witness that you pray isn’t always enough either. What about how you pray? Are you rushed and distracted? Are you nonchalant if you miss the prayer? I know of an adult who remembers his own father weeping when he once missed a prayer, and that reaction made more of an impression on him about the importance of prayer than all the lectures in the world ever could.

In conclusion, I feel it’s important to confess how emotionally difficult it was for me to actually write this article. I’ve been analyzing what my hesitation was, and I realize that it was rooted in the fear that my words will come across as preachy and imbued with a sense of self-satisfaction when nothing could be farther from the truth. Another part of me worries that I will somehow jinx my family by admitting to the world that my husband and kids are regular with their prayers. I remember when I had my first son in 1997, how desperate I was to find any kind of reading material that would help motivate and guide me in teaching him the fundamentals of this beautiful tradition.

Teaching our children and teenagers to perform obligatory prayers, is a delicate and often stressful matter for families. What is the divine guidance on the matter? When and how is it best done? Parenting expert Hina Khan-Mukhtar sheds some light.

3) “If it was good enough for the Prophet, it’s good enough for me.”
When I asked Shaan why he is committed to his prayers, he said, “It was the last thing the Prophet (salallaahu alaihi wasallam) told us to hold onto; he was talking about it right up until the point he passed away. How can we ignore that? How important must prayer be if he (peace be upon him) was reminding us about it even with his last breaths?” They learned that missing a prayer just isn’t an option for anyone who has taqwa (God-consciousness).

4) Teach them what they’re saying, what they’re doing, and why.
Prayer should not be allowed to become a series of robotic yoga-like motions devoid of meaning or purpose. Zeeshan and I have been forthright with our kids and confessed to them that there will be times when prayer might feel like an inconvenient, rote duty that just needs to be discharged — and they may find themselves feeling disillusioned and disheartened when those thoughts come to them — but, nevertheless, the prayer is never to be abandoned.
We have made sure to make it clear to the kids, however, that God is not in any need of our prayers or our praise or our prostrations; on the contrary, it is we who are in need of Him. We have also emphasized that none of us should ever feel self-righteous or holier-than-thou about the fact that we are choosing to pray when others are not. “We need prayer; it’s like taking medicine that the Doctor prescribes,” I tell the boys. “Would any of us go around bragging about taking meds or look down on others because they aren’t taking the prescription that we’ve chosen to take for our own health?”Ados-pour-HAWe all know that you are only as good as the company you keep, and being in an environment where prayer is as natural as eating or drinking just helps create a new type of “normal” for the kids. My boys have grown up seeing not only their parents and their friends praying in congregation but seeing their parents’ friends and friends’ parents giving significance to prayer.

Teaching our children about the Isra and Mi’raj (Night Journey and Ascension) has been instrumental in getting them to understand how the prayer was revealed and what the different parts of the prayer mean to us on a spiritual level. The position of ruku (bowing) is compared to the way one would bow in front of a king. In the humbling position of sajdah (prostration), we point out how that is the only position in which the human heart is elevated over the human brain. It is the heart that truly knows God; it is the heart that truly recognizes Him.” The prayer will suddenly have relevance for them.

Finally, it’s really important to talk to the kids about intention. One of my favorite quotes that I like to share with the boys is a comparison of worshipers of three types — the first is the worshiper who worships out of desire for Heaven (he is like the businessman looking only for a profit); the second is the worshiper who worships out of fear of the Hell-fire (he is like the slave who wants only to avoid punishment); and the third is the worshiper who worships out of gratitude because he recognizes that Allah is worthy of worship (he is the truly free man).
“Which one are you?” we ask our sons…and then we leave them to reflect.
And we reflect on ourselves as well.

5) Set them up for success.
We recently invested quite a bit of money in some high quality khuffs (waterproof socks) for him so that he wouldn’t have to deal with the inconvenience of having to stick his foot in the sink while making wudu in the boys’ restroom at his high school. He can just wipe over his khuffs during school hours now. On Shaan’s first day as a freshman, his father and I helped him come up with talking points so that he could approach the principal with confidence when he requested a private space for prayer; we promised to have his back if he ran into any resistance.
Our “support” turned out to be unnecessary however. It’s been three years now, alhamdulillah, and the high school front office staff knows Shaan really well — he’s the kid who comes in every day during lunch to go to the conference room to pray.imagesWhile all of these gadgets and gizmos may be great to have around for convenience’s sake, the kids understand that they will have to make do for prayer — one way or the other — whether they have their prayer packs on hand or not. “Guard your prayer” is the mantra in our home.

Planting A Seeds Of Meditation And Inner Communion In Our Children

eliminate-violenceDear Friends,
in my post of the last year, I have mentioned again and again the importance of the practice of prayer and meditation, as tools to enter a space of inner communion with the higher self. I shared how easy it is to turn everyday life activities into meditation by adding mindful awareness to them; posted a study from the University of Harvard on the impact of meditation on the brain; let you know about the success Schools in San Francisco have by adding meditation to their curriculum; and most importantly, I shared how it is even scientifically proofed that group meditation can change the energetic field of the entire world. And of course in many of my pieces I mentioned the effectiveness of prayer to the energies of the Ascended Master Realms.
Nearly a year ago I ran into this wonderful article describing how to pass on a sense for cultivating commitment and bliss in our daily practice of prayer. While reading the piece I realized, that the author speaks with such a beautifully open heart and from such deep insides into human nature, that sharing her piece is of big value for many. The article is a very long one, that is why I choose to only use excepts and share the knowledge in a trilogy starting today! The guidance was originally written for Muslim parents looking for a way to introduce their kids to the intense commitment of five prayers the day, but they are just as valuable for every parent looking to give their children a feeling for meditation and a mindful lifestyle. I hope you enjoy her wonderful insides just as much as I did, and find profound guidance in her words.
Tomorrows post will be the second part, watch out for it!!
Love and Blessed Communions!
Edith

If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!!

Teaching our children and teenagers to perform obligatory prayers, is a delicate and often stressful matter for families. What is the divine guidance on the matter? When and how is it best done? Parenting expert Hina Khan-Mukhtar sheds some light.

“How the heck do you get a teenage boy in public high school to care about not missing his prayer?”
It is a question that I’ve been asked more than once, and there has never been a simple, easy answer to give. The quickest and most honest one is to frankly admit that all guidance is a blessing and a mercy from God and none of us are in any real control of what our children choose to take — and not take — from our teachings.
But let’s face it — we all know that’s not what parents want to hear (even if they know it’s the truth). Parents are looking for tips and advice, some kind of handbook to follow, a checklist of do’s and don’ts. For the purposes of this article, I did sit down and reflect on what has brought us to where we are now after almost 18 years of raising sons, alhamdulillah (praise be to God). I write this article with the full knowledge that we are no experts; we are no authority figures; we are no success stories. We just happen to be parents who for whatever reason are blessed with children who choose to pray…for now.MeditatingI asked my kids what they think has helped make prayer a priority for them in their lives, and I informally interviewed some friends to get their insights as well. Here’s what has worked for our families so far, and we hope that our experiences may help others in turn, insha’Allah (God willing)…

1) For God’s sake (literally), leave those kids alone for the first 7 years!
You shouldn’t have any real expectations of them until after they are 7 years old. I still remember how I cringed when I once saw a well-meaning father pretty much forcing his 6-year-old daughter to join the congregational prayer. She kept running off, and he kept bringing her back, insisting that she fold her hands and stand silently by his side as he recited the Quranic verses aloud. His intentions were noble and sincere, no doubt, but the execution left much to be desired. It was painful to watch, and I remember hoping that his plans weren’t going to backfire on him one day. Another time, I heard a mother tell her son that “Allah will be mad at you if you don’t pray; the angels are writing down that you’re being a bad boy”, and it took all my willpower not to cry out loud, “Stop! Please don’t say that to your 5-year-old!”
What baffles most adults is trying to figure out how they are supposed to take the spiritual souls that have been placed under their care and then successfully prepare them for the lifelong duty of praying five times a day once their physical bodies have attained puberty.

In the early years, children should be allowed to join and leave the prayer at will, letting themselves get acclimated to the motions and the sensations of the ritual prayer at their own pace. Praying with the family should be an enjoyable experience — one that kids can partake in (or not) as much as they desire. Their association with prayer should be one of sweetness. I know one father who has all of his children share their duas (supplications) aloud one by one after the prayer is over so that everyone can join together in asking Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) to grant their siblings’ wishes. Once the duas are over, the kids often dissolve into tickling and wrestling matches while the father finishes up his supererogatory prayers on his own.

2) When the time for praying finally comes, go all out and make the initiation into prayer a celebration to remember! Treat it like an exciting honor, a real rite of passage.
When each of my boys turned 7 years old, I bought them beautiful journals which I gave to my friends and family to fill with inspiring messages about prayer. My parents and my in-laws each wrote messages to their grandsons, sharing their hopes and wishes for their futures with them. Older cousins wrote about how prayer helps them in good times and in bad; aunties and uncles gave advice on what helps them get through “prayer slumps” which — if we are truly honest — are bound to come in one’s life at some point or another. The general theme was one of encouragement and excitement. It’s been almost 10 years since I put together those gifts for my older two sons, and even now, I will sometimes catch them perusing their Prayer Books with smiles on their faces as they read the heartfelt messages to themselves.eZeeshan and I have found that slow and steady wins the race. When each of our sons turned 7 years old, we allowed them to choose one prayer that they wanted to take on as their daily commitment. The understanding was that — no matter what — the one prayer would never be neglected from that day (i.e. their 7th birthday) forward. If the boys wanted to pray any of the other prayers, that was all well and good, but it was their choice and we made it clear that we would not be monitoring them or holding them accountable.
Whether they were at a play date or in the middle of a shopping mall or at a swimming lesson, if the time for their prayer came in, they made sure to take a few minutes to complete it.We continued this routine for twelve months. When a year of praying one prayer on time had finally passed by successfully, we told the boys that they were now “qualified” to take on a second prayer. We treated it like an honor that only the most responsible could be trusted to handle! We told them that we were trying to teach them how to honor commitments, we knew that it took practice and discipline to do so, and we accepted that it was our job to slowly but surely teach them those tools for success. Using this method, all three of our boys were praying all five of their daily prayers by the time they were 9 1/2 years old, alhamdulillah. By age 10, prayer was an established routine.

During the course of writing this article, I asked my almost-16-year-old son Ameen why he prays all of his prayers on time, and he responded, “I don’t remember ever not praying, so I can’t imagine not doing it now. It’s a part of who I am.” My most fervent prayer is that he always feels that way. I am no fool; I know prayer is a gift and, if not treated with gratitude and humility, it can be lost at any moment. May Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) protect us from ever experiencing such a devastating void in our lives. Aameen. (Amen.)

Our Psychic Abilities Have Increased – Creating A Healing Friendship With Trees

onnenby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
just a month ago, when we passed the powerful Pisces New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse, we collectively had the chance to open our physical channels and develop a deep inner connection with the elemental forces of nature. Just about a week ago, I talked about the fact that our psychic abilities have collectively increased, and that brings strength to this inner relationships. One of the realms we can exchange with, is the Kindom of the weeds, flowers, bushes and trees that are surrounding us. A conscious interaction between the Nature Kingdom and the human race, is as old as human life itself! Our pagan ancestors worshiped trees. In many traditions in Europe, trees are admired for their magical, healing and grounding powers.

A personal message to all my facebook friends!! FB is limiting the distribution of my posts daily more. If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!! Over time I might not be able to put in the FB time, if it does not lead to what it is about – SPREADING THE WORD ;-)!

It is known, that Plato and Aristotle received their deepest insights in the olive groves around Athens. Buddha found enlightenment beneath a bo tree, and Isaac Newton received his “gravity theory” while watching an apple fall from the tree, under which he was sitting.
Scientific research confirmed that simple being in a green environment reduces the human stress level and blood pressure, has a positive effect on mental illnesses, on depression, helps with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), concentration problems, increases your reaction time – as well as deeply nurtures body and soul. The sounds, smells, sights, the texture and the taste of the air tickle our senses, which leads to improved health and well-being.
So tree Hugging is not only for Hippies to the contrary, “let’s make it a fashion trend”!! Hugging a tree can boost our health and the happiness we feel about being alive, so don’t be shy!!
In order to create a new relationship with trees, the first step is to make sure you feel worthy to be their co-creative partner. Relax your mind and body, breath deeply and allow the subtle energies – that are their natural language of all existence – to create an energetic field for connection between you.
Trust and the trees will assist you to open your energy channels and come to inner calmness. This space of presence allows you to feel the energetic exchange. Just play with it! Confidence comes with practice!!m;kllHere is a short list of trees that are especially helpful to the human race, for our collective evolution process!

The excess to new dimensions from the BIRCH TREE:
Birch trees support us in our forgiveness process and awaken the energy of new beginnings inside of us. It helps us cleans from the impact of our past. Shamans, Druids and Celtics used the Birch wood tree to enter altered states of consciousness. It reminds us to live our life with purpose and master our personal energy field.

The energies of trust and faith from the CHERRY TREE:
Cherry trees whisper to us about the chance for a new awakening. They support us to remove all obstacles that are preventing our spiritual growth. It is the burning fire of the inner Phoenix, the rising from the ashes of the past. It stands for the cycles of re-birth, the self-creation of a new life after every mental death.

Access to universal energies from the ELM TREE:
Elm trees are channels for the higher vibrations of the divine. They help us get in touch with the invisible world behind the veil of human perception. For our personal soul path, they assist us in hearing our inner voice and to have faith in our intuition. On an energetic level the family collective of the Elm trees is stronger connected to each other, than any other tree species. A brotherhood of trees!

Harmony between heaven and earth from the HONEYSUCKLE TREE:
Honeysuckle is the perfect plant partner to empower the work of healer, light-worker and energy-worker. It awakens confidence for our creations, the use of psychic energies and the magnetic attraction required for manifestation on the material plane. It reminds us of our authentic personal power, our highest potential, the awakening to psychic abilities and the courage to follow our own beliefs.

A gateway between the worlds from the WISTERIA:
Wisteria provides us with a gateway between the human species and the divine realm. It is known as “the ecstasy of the poet”, as it helps us to awaken and draw in inspiration and good vibrations for divinely channeled creative process. The Wisteria flower serves us in the manifestation of our true self, as it activates the heart chakra and the throat chakra. On our path of illumination, it provides the needed spiritual influence to reach a higher state of consciousness.shaPower for your prayers from the BEECH TREE:
There is a legend reporting that Sanskrit, the most ancient language of prayer, has first been carved on a Beech bark. Therefor the power of the written word, spiritual wisdom, knowledge of the past and a love for literature are associated with this tree. It awakens tolerance and respect for all existence and helps with the alignment to the guidance of your higher self.

Balance between the female and the male forces from the MAPLE TREE:
Maple trees help strengthen our connection between Yin & Yang, the dance of the polarities, the electrical and the magnetic powers. They ground our psychic abilities and spiritual energies. Maple trees help women illuminate their inner fire, and supports men in the awakening of their feminine nurturing nature, their intuition and creativity.

Protection during inner transitions form the ALDER TREE:
The raven, a bird of great knowledge and perception, is associated with the Alder tree. The related element is water. The Alder reminds us by divine law, that everything is constantly in movement. So even when it seams like we are not moving forward at all, we do – only a bit slow. Patients is required now!

Alignment for your chakra centers from the LILAC:
The Lilac is the best partner to use in your meditating practice as it has the potential to connect us with our spirit guides. It attracts the help of protective spirits into our work and its healing power reminds us of the divine beauty within the individuality of all things. When used for aromatherapy, Lilac awakens mental clarity and freedom.

Regeneration and rejuvenation from the OLIVE TREE:
The Olive tree increases our sensitivity, our hope, our joy for life and our deepest longing for peace and harmonious relationships. It helps us develop the courage and honor of a spiritual warrior and is therefor associated with gods and goddesses like Pallas Athena, Poseidon and Zeus. Olive trees support our physical self-healing abilities and spiritual growth.jDear Ones, I wish you nurturing, healing experiences when you are getting in touch with your higher sensory abilities and the frequencies of the tree spirits!!! Remember the strongest connections can be achieved with the joyful, relaxed and lighthearted approach of a child!!! Have fun playing with our brothers and sisters from the Nature Kingdom!
Blessings and Nature Love!!

Native American Wisdom For The Collective Awakening Process

aby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
over the last few weeks we have been invited to take a deep look at the meaning of our sexual relationships in the past, and the changes we are facing to create the new relationship paradigm. At the same time the collective awakening energies have together with the higher amount of pineal gland awakenings, brought the chance to create a deeper sensory relationship with the elements. Now it is time to make ourselves familiar with some guidelines and rules of Native American wisdom, that can lead the human collective into integrating the new born abilities.

A personal message to all my facebook friends!! FB is limiting the distribution of my posts daily more. If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!! Over time I might not be able to put in the FB time, if it does not lead to what it is about – SPREADING THE WORD ;-)!

We have been invited to nourish and protect our childlike innocence, to be curious about life and be in the heart, and this are the qualities that are bringing forward our new ability to live aligned with this divine guidelines for the Golden Age of Humanity, that we are manifesting right now!! Finally the first pioneers on this wonderful planet are truly ready to go beyond race, gender, age, religion, tradition, language and patriotism, and create the communities of the future we collectively desire!! The first soul tribes are forming, THE FUTURE HAS BEGONE…

We are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For
You have been telling the people,
That is the eleventh hour.
Now, you must go and tell the people,
That This is the hour;

And there are things to be considered.
Where are you living? What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in the right relationship?eWhere is your water?
Know your garden…
It is time to speak the truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.

There is a river flowing now very fast,
It is so great and swift.
That there are those who will be afraid,
They will try to hold onto the shore.

They will feel they are being pulled apart,
And they will suffer greatly.
Understand that the river knows its divine destination.

The elders say we must let go of the shore.
Push off into the middle of the river,
Keep our eyes open and our heads above water.
And I say: see who is in there with you,
Hold fast to them and celebrate!

At this time in history,
We are to take nothing personally.
Least of all, ourselves!
For the moment we do,
Our spiritual growth and journey comes to an end.

The time of the Lone Wolf is over! Gather ourselves!
Banish the word “struggle” from your attitude and vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done,
In a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are all about to go on a sacred journey,
We are the ones we have been waiting for!
Speaker of the Wolf – Fox and Coyote Elder of the Hopi NationbThis is how the Native American Code of Ethics states it:

Rise with the sun to pray. Pray alone. Pray often.
The Great Spirit will listen, if you only speak.
Be tolerant of those who are lost on their path.
Ignorance, conceit, anger, jealousy and greed stem from a lost soul.

Pray that they will find guidance.
Search for yourself, by yourself.
Do not allow others to make your path for you.
It is your road, and yours alone.

Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.
Treat the guests in your home with much consideration.
Serve them the best food, give them the best bed
and treat them with respect and honor.

Do not take what is not yours whether from a person,
a community, the wilderness or from a culture.
It was not earned nor given. It is not yours.Respect all things that are placed upon this earth,
whether it be people or plant.
Honor other people’s thoughts, wishes, and words.

Never interrupt another or mock or rudely mimic them.
Allow each person the right to personal expression.
Never speak of others in a bad way.
The negative energy that you put out into the universe,
will multiply when it returns to you.dAll persons make mistakes.
And all mistakes can be forgiven.
Bad thoughts cause illness of the mind, body and spirit.
Practice optimism.

Nature is not FOR us, it is a PART of us.
They are part of your worldly family. Whispers
Children are the seeds of our future.
Plant love in their hearts.
Water them with wisdom and life’s lessons.
When they are grown, give them space to grow.

Avoid hurting the hearts of others.
The poison of your pain will return to you.
Be truthful at all times.
Honesty is the test of one’s will within this universe.

Keep yourself balanced.
Your Mental self, Spiritual self, Emotional self, and Physical self.
All need to be strong, pure and healthy.

Work out the body to strengthen the mind.
Grow rich in spirit to cure emotional ails.
Make conscious decisions as to who you will be
and how you will react.

Be responsible for your own actions.
Respect the privacy and personal space of others.
Do not touch the personal property of others,
especially sacred and religious objects.
This is forbidden.fBe true to yourself first.
You cannot nurture and help others if you cannot
nurture and help yourself first.
Respect others religious beliefs.
Do not force your belief on others.

Share your good fortune with others.
Participate in giving.

Dear Ones, I hope you feel interested and motivated now to study, explore and integrate the awareness of our chances and responsibilities, for manifesting the Native American Code of Ethic in everyday life. Lets be strong all together, hold hands and trust that we truly are the ones we have been waiting for. The ones who will bring the Golden Age of Aquarius. Always remember you are enough and you deserve to make all your deepest dreams come true!!
Light an Love ;-)!

Edith

The Divine Color Rays Most Active In Our Collective Awakening

oby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
over the last few month you heard me repeatedly talking about the increased support that is in the air, transmitted from the Realms of the  Ascended Masters, and reachable for so many for the first time right now. I shared a post explaining how the Masters send out information, energetic waves and their higher frequencies, thru the highways of sound and light, and how that has an impact on human life on earth. We looked into the power of transformation that the inner fire of alchemy is holding for us, and how our breathing is the key to master this alchemical process. As we change layer by layer, and transform our momentary state of being – into a higher vibrating version of our TRUE SELF, we manifest more and more light into our physical body and become the shining lights we always have been. The Ascended Master Apollonius of Tyanan showed us the way, how to raise our vibration of the physical bodies DNA strands!
Than the last few days there have been so many Angelic Messages, Number Sequences, Synchronicity and repetitions of numbers that appeared, since the intense energies of the Virgo Full Moon, that today it is time to collect information on the divine highways of light; the divine color rays of manifestation; that are the most active for us these days.
For the ones who are not familiar with this term jet, we are talking about the seven colors of the inner wheels of divine creation, the inner rainbow light of the chakra system in the physical body. Each of the seven rays represents the acceptance, perfection and completion of a particular aspect in our personal Christ Consciousness – the I AM awareness. On our individual path of self-mastery, the frequencies transmitted from this rays, combined with the awareness of their meaning, can propeller our growth quickly into exhilaration. We are all great spiritual beings, powerful and deserving of our own awakening and ascension. Use your power to create exactly the life you want on planet earth!!

A personal message to all my facebook friends!! FB is limiting the distribution of my articles. In case this restrictions keep going, only a very small amount of people on FB will be able to see my posts!! If you enjoy my work and are used to find my articles shared in a group, please sign up on my newsletter here. Just type in your e-mail address in the prepared field!!  Over time I will not be able to invest the FB time, if it does not lead to what it is about – SPREADING THE WORD ;-)!!gfHere is the result I got after tapping into the divine color rays, in order to ask which of them are the most active for our collective awakening process right now. In order to show you how long they are already announcing their presence, and how the articles I am channeling are interconnected over long periods of time, you find under the name of each Ascended Masters listed, an article about them with prayers, invocations or Mantras.

Masters of the First Divine Ray: The Blue Ray
EL MORYA – CHOHAN:
Is the Chohan (the Leader) of the first divine ray. He is also chief of the Darjeeling Council and of the Great White Brotherhood. El Morya represents courage, focus, certainty, power, forthrightness, self-reliance, dependability, self-responsibility, faith and divine action. All attributes a human being emotionally identifies with the Father principle, the energy of an authentic leader, a judge or a king – human archetypes, human reality and internal qualities of a true spiritual warrior.

IMMACULATA THE PLANETARY SILENT WATCHER:
Immaculata is holding the divine blueprint of life, from which constantly the pattern of perfection and creation for the Golden Age of Aquarius on our planet and for all her attendants flows. It is her service to watch over the human race and guard individuals as well as groups of people, to follow the DIVINE HIGHER WILL.kuthumimMasters of the Second Divine Ray: The Golden Ray

BUDDHA GAUTAMA:
is known as The Enlightened Being or The Buddha, and was the founder of Buddhism in India. The Buddha can help us to energetically translate, transform and clarify inner energies to higher vibrations.

He is Mayan sun god, patron of the creations of music and poetry and is the son of “Hunab Ku” –  the “Great Central Spiritual Sun “.

MASTER LING:
is a loving source of assistants for each of us, who calls him into his awareness. His message: it is easier to learn how to shield our awareness, than to clear our energetic field from disharmonious thoughts and feelings of the world, once they entered our conciseness.mmMasters of the Seventh Divine Ray: The Violet Ray
SAINT GERMAIN:
is the master alchemist of the sacred inner fire, who carries the flame of the violet fire for us. This inner fire provides us with the ability to transform, transmute, elevate and shift every emotional pattern inside of us, into higher vibration and devotion to express divine purity.

LADY PORTIA:
is known as the Goddess of Justice and Opportunity, but even more important she is the Ascended Master of Initiation to the next level of higher vibration. She represents the quality of divine justice – the execution of the Divine / Hermetic Laws on planet earth. She is the twin flame of Saint Germain on the Seventh Ray of Transformation, Freedom and Transmutation.

KUAN YIN:
is known as the Goddess of Mercy. Her divine qualities are compassion, kindness, fertility, health and magic. She is patron of the children and of the helpless here on earth. In China she is also known as the great mercy, great pity, salvation from misery, salvation from woe, and the Goddess of thousand arms and thousand eyes.jjDear Ones, I hope you feel encouraged and inspired to make your contact with the divine light within you!! That you are brave this year, when the energies of the universe again decide to turn our world many times upside down!!! I hope you find strength and support with the Masters energy field and always remember “you deserve to walk this life in the ease and blessings of your I AM presence”!! Keep breathing deeply, and taking in all the divine blessings that come now as harvest of our work into manifestation!
Blessings an Courage ;-)! Edith
