Dear Ground Crew,

Let me count the ways I would love to help heal your hearts at the beginning of this New Year! Happy 2017 with all of it’s potential for new beginnings, abnormalities, unpredictability, disappointments, excitement and perhaps some divine intervention.

For the first time I can remember this New Year feels unbalanced and almost like we are walking on eggshells. Every day is a new day. We are on a quest for truth. We are creating our future while turning away from the past. Our future is at our fingertips. We are the light bearers who are stepping into our true purpose and destiny.

This is a time of deep spiritual seeking and growth. We have turned in our resumes with our lifetimes of preparation for what is happening now. Little did we know we were going to be getting such a show!

Here’s a list of some of what we can do:

  • Be committed to your spiritual work.
  • Meditation and prayer is imperative.
  • Hold positive thoughts.
  • Think things through.
  • Stay out of the drama.
  • Be an activist about what’s most important to you.
  • Merge with your future self. (We came from the future to change this now moment.)
  • Practice discernment to the fullest. (Use the I AM presence to help with discernment. Listen to the physical body and pay attention to its reactions to situations.)
  • Keep in mind that all that is happening is a part of creating our new earth.
  • Focus on staying grounded, balanced and centered.
  • Listen deeply within.
  • Get lots of rest. (We are working very hard in the dream state to prepare for what is coming.)
  • Maintain a positive attitude about what is occurring.
  • Help each other.
  • Be with like-minded people.
  • Pay attention to your energy. If it is being drained by others or certain situations make some new choices.
  • Drink lots of water.
  • Eat healthy food.
  • Do whatever you can to raise your vibration.
  • Stay in your own power and don’t give it away to anyone.
  • Release any fears that might pop up. These are old 3D programs that are no longer applicable.
  • Get out in nature and exercise.
  • Be as removed as possible from mainstream media.
  • Be wary of some of the information on the Internet. There are dark forces that are trying to disrupt the ascension process.
  • Trust in the process. Know that the old is imploding upon itself and we get to watch it go.
  • Be gentle with yourself and others. They are all going through their issues. Compassion for self and others will make it easier.
  • Keep creating and feeling into what our lives will be like living in the fifth dimension.
  • Create beauty and see beauty every day.
  • Focus on the love in your heart and spread it far and wide.

Helpful Suggestions

By Valerie Donner

Helpful suggestions from my heart to yours
Can help you have a New Year’s buzz.
Take them in like a fun fizzling drink
And then feel good about what you think.

Tickle your fancy with music and art.
Dance your heart out and do your part.
Practice delight in every turn
Watch the old go away and let it burn.

Light up your life
With fun and play.
Get some good laughs
With each day.

Notice or play with children
Cats, horses and dogs.
Hang out in parks
Along with the frogs.

Consider the earth
Like a big candy store.
You are bringing in the sweetness
And abundance galore.

Pick up your feet
Watch yourself move.
You are stepping out of 3D
Into a 5D groove.

Use your time wisely.
Waste nothing at all.
Keep it simple
And rise to the call.

Some Recommendations

This time of the year some people make predictions for what might happen or have some valuable input for the end of the year. Some of the ones I have read are interesting. Some people that I think could be on track are:

Doreen Virtue. This is a link to her Angel Card Reading for 2017. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4AtHLwWmks

And here's the video


I always resonate with Aluna Joy. Please read her latest article: “Always darkest before the dawn ... and dawn is coming.”Aluna Joy / December 31, 2016 / Home to Aluna Joy Yaxk'in and the Star Elders

Maureen Moss is another heroine of mine. www.maureenmoss.com has a wonderful end of the year article you should read.

So the information and disinformation keep coming. Please use reliable sources that make you feel good. The angst that many people are feeling needs our light. We can smother the darkness with love and light. There has been some talk from the soon to be administration about escalating the nuclear weaponry on the planet. Please know for sure that the Galactic’s will not allow nuclear. If any of the ego maniac governments on the planet try it they will surely be stopped. In fact someone I know who was a pilot in the Air Force for 50 years said, “I have been around ET’s for 50 years. Every base I ever went to that had nuclear had spaceships around it.”

One of my scholarly clients called “nuclear” “new clear.” She used the word “balance.” It was timely because I had just finished meditating when she called. I told her I was sending missiles of love and light to those coming into power.

In a recent discussion about all of the changes with some people at a party these words came to me: “He whom the gods would destroy they first make mad with power.” I believe it was from Shakespeare (Aka St. Germain) but the phrase has been attributed to others too.

A Message from Mira from the Pleiadian High Council
through Valerie Donner January 3, 2017

Greetings, I am Mira. I greet you today in your new year of great changes. We continue to watch over you and care for you. The intensity of the planet and your lives is expanding exponentially. We keep constant watch for where we are needed. We are here to encourage you and to assist you in joining the rest of planets of this solar system and beyond. The earth has been left behind to battle the forces of darkness for too long.

Now this is coming to an end. You can expect the intensity to increase as it get closer to end the time of darkness. Please know the fifth dimension is already overlaid on the earth and is in planetary position to shift in the blink of an eye.

We will be ready for this great shift of the ages. We all welcome humanity into the fold of your true heritage of the galactic and the light beings. This is who you are and it is why you are on the planet right now. It is because you love the earth so much and so do we. You deserve much better than you have had in the past.

Your experience on the earth during this incarnation and others is one for the textbooks. It will be included in the teachings for eternity and will be used as an example of how far a planet can go when interfered with by the forces of darkness. You will also be acknowledged and honored for being committed, gifted lightworkers. After your ascension and you have fulfilled your time on earth, your services will be needed on other third dimensional planets that are also going through the ascension process.

You know little of your true history or of your worth. You will begin to learn your true value and in so doing you will become unstoppable. This frightens the dark forces. You are and will be a force with which to be reckoned. We are with you every step of the way. It is time for you to stand up and to be counted.

We know your capabilities. After all, look at what you have had to endure as beings on planet earth. You are gifted far beyond your ability to know but soon you will find out. We are here to open up the flood gates of light and to emphasize the work that the ground crew will be doing.

Please understand that you have everything you need to complete this process. The plans are already in place for you to live in a new earth. Let bygones be bygones and rise above the heartaches and challenges while your new way of life in the fifth dimension comes to fruition.

Please be patient and strong. Stay open and free from fear. Know that change is necessary. The old third dimension is going away. You have much to look forward to in the higher dimension where you will be free from your bondage. Release the past and live in the now moment and the future you that you are quickly becoming.

We greatly anticipate working with you, learning and enjoying our re-connection. We have much to learn from each other. Welcome to the awakening and shift of the ages.

We send love, light and blessings to you from the Pleiades and the Earth Council. I am Mira.

In Conclusion

Life is not going to be boring in 2017 for a second. We will be engaged in our work of the light and in expanding the new earth. We need to work with the energies and be mindful of what we can do to move forward with ease and grace. Many blessings are coming to us. We will be amazed at our manifesting abilities and we will be pleased that we have worked hard on ourselves in this incarnation. It will all be worth it.

If any of you still need help with spiritual counseling, readings, heart healing or energy healings, or just someone who can help lift you up, I am your girl. You may contact me at: 925-287-8976 or e-mail me at: vdonner99@gmail.com

There will be another Teleconference Call Meditation that I am doing on January 14 at 10:00AM, Pacific Time. Please call: 712-770-4010 and use Access Code 113-815. It's free and lasts for 45 minutes.

Have a most awesome and blessed New Year!

With love from my heart to yours

 Sessions with Valerie Donner

         Working deeply at the heart soul level, which is where the healing needs to occur, Valerie uses her gifts of clairsentience, clairvoyance, claircognizance and clairaudience. She has been meditating twice daily for over 40 years so this enables her to go in depth from her heart when working with people. She has been doing healing work for 15 years and has helped thousands of clients.

                  She invites her client’s team of their own guides, Archangel, Angels and Masters, as well as her own team such as the energies of the Christ, Mother Mary, St. Germain, Kuthumi, Djwal Khul, the Archangels Gabriel, Uriel, Michael and Raphael, the Native American healers, and others, to be with you when the session starts. As she begins running the energy, information comes to her and she will give you a message. From there the session goes accordingly and includes a combination of spiritual counseling, energy healing, intuitive readings, channeling and teaching. It depends upon the clients’ wishes for the session.

         Valerie works with quantum healing because it is a blend of the spiritual body, mental, emotional and physical body. Disease starts at the spiritual level, goes to the mental, the emotional and then the physical body. She gets out of the way so the energies of our Creator can work through her.

Some benefits of having a session include:

  • Greater understanding and clearing of emotional issues with relationships including with those on the other side
  • Energy healing for physical issues as well as from trauma, abuse and addictions
  • Clarity, direction and guidance
  • Release of negative energies
  • Deepening the connection with the inner child and your soul
  • Help with spiritual growth
  • Readings from hour angels and guides
  • Aligned chakras
  • Clearing out of old core issues like fear of being unlovable, fear of the future, fear of being alone or not good enough
  • Insight into your divine purpose
  • Improved self-empowerment and self esteem
  • Feeling lighter and more positive

Valerie also does channelings and readings.

Sessions are available by phone or in person.   Please contact Valerie at: vdonner99@gmail.com or by phone: 925-287-8976.   Rates are: $60 for 30 minutes, plus $30 for each 15 minute increments. Sliding scales are possible for those who need them.
