Laura Bruno – The Tipping Point Of Gardens – 17 june 2014

laura-of-the-rocksIn looking for David’s parents’ extra hoses, I stumbled upon a small cache of garden pots and bird houses, right after David’s sister and I took a serendipitous trip to Goodwill, where I also found some almost free pots and flower vases. Suddenly having extra pots after just seeing what my friend Leah had done with her front yard tree stump brought a splash of creativity to our yard. Until now, I’ve focused primarily on edible ornamentals and/or bee/butterfly habitats. I hadn’t deemed the shady, wild backyard worthy of too much concentration, because, frankly, it seemed overwhelming. I cannot believe what a difference a few pots, birdhouses, Tibetan flags and shade plants make! Continue reading

Summary of Brenda’s June 14, 2014 free, 15-minute, channeled “Creation Energies” show at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/brenda-hoffman: Many of you are ready to exit your cocoon – from an earth being moving along the ground to a butterfly traveling where you wish. Most likely, those of you ready to emerge from your cocoon are bored or without direction. That will change in the next few days. Those of you not yet emerging may be entering your cocoon or clearing the piece that ties you to 3D earth. Allow the energies of the next few days to push you to the place of the new you your inner-being wishes to be.  Continue reading

WakingTimes – Dave Mihalovic – CDC’s Vaccine Safety Research Is Exposed As Flawed And Falsified – 17 June 2014

waking_times_logo_6-5-12_1More prominent evidence continues to arise on the falsification of peer-review studies, ghostwriting pharmaceutical studies by academics; especially related to vaccines, thimerosal and autism. The close coupling of commerce and academia is largely to blame, but what is clear is that the scientific enterprise is no longer built on a foundation of trust.

ZeroHedge – Greece Goes Medieval – 2/3rds Of Wages Paid In Barter – 17 June 2014

ZeroHedgeSubmitted by KeepTalkingGreece blog,

Do you remember the serfs and servants and villeins and peasants in the good old times of feudalism and the Middle Ages? If you don’t, I have good news for you! The custom of working in return of goods instead of salary revives in Greece of modern European Union and of exquisite Euro area. The results of a survey conducted by the Labor Institute of the Confederation of Labor Union (GSEE) are shocking but not unexpected. KTG has often reported in the four years of blogging about these sweet little working and payment conditions of modern Greek slaves living under the feudal law of austerity, recession and  competitiveness.

Dana Mrkich – Delays And Divine Timing – 17 june 2014

Dana Colour Pic NewChristian and I have been trying to conceive our second little one for nearly 18 months now. We got everything physical checked out, all good, and from there let it go to divine timing – until the timing we ‘expected’ didn’t happen as we expected it to. 

I’m sure many of you can relate to the myriad of emotions that you go through when you want something that isn’t happening, if not in this particular area then perhaps with love or work or a home situation. Trust turns to frustration, anticipation strolls into despair, you talk yourself back up to trust again and basically repeat that cycle a lot!  Continue reading

Aisha North – A Short Update On The Energies – 17 June 2014

AishaNorthAs you have perhaps already noticed, you have already been carried far out to sea by these incoming energies, and as such, you may find yourself at a place that seems both familiar and unfamiliar at the same time, and rightly so. For even if you are indeed venturing out into virgin territory, you are also venturing further and further into you, and so, what may seem unsettling at times will soon grow into something more akin to a homecoming where you will sense the profound feeling of finally coming fully home to you. But as yet, you may still encounter some glimpses of yesteryear that may serve to unbalance you in such a way, you might think you have fallen prey to that old and unwanted companion, fear. But fear not, this is not what is happening, this can in many ways be likened to the rapid unspooling of an old film, where some of the frames may come into focus as the rest of the narrative disappears in a blur.
