Straight From The Heart

Dear Ground Crew,

How are you doing during these interesting and challenging times? We have had some amazing energies lately, both astrologically, with the sun, the Earth and our own processes that go along with these changes. Due to the changes in the Earth’s electromagnetic field, mood swings can be part of what it occurring. You might feel like you have an unsure footing on the Earth, which is understandable when things are shifting quickly. It might be hard to hang on. In fact, it is almost impossible to hang onto the old. Keep letting go and things will go more smoothly for you.


The solar flares are contributing to some of the massive weather changes. In addition, since we had the tsunami last December and the Earth’s axis wobbled it also shifted. This is contributing in a large scale to the unusual weather patterns because the Earth is facing the sun in a different direction now. It could be part of a pole shift.


In the book “Beyond Prophecies and Preconditions, Everyone’s Guide to the Coming Changes,” by Moira Timms, it is explained that the Earth has had 171 pole shifts.   Geologists and other scientists have determined this is not something new. As we know these “external events have their counterpart within human consciousness,” according to Timms. The book describes how positive changes in the mass consciousness and constructive actions can modify planetary karma and avert catastrophe.


Here in the San Francisco bay area our usual summers consist of about four days of heat in the 90’s or occasionally in the 100’s. This summer we have had ten days in a row of heat above 100 degrees. Fortunately in the past couple of weeks the weather has returned more to normal where our ocean fog cools things down for a while.


This is also related to sunspots (solar flares), which have been increasing. For further information about this subject you might want to purchase Mitch Battros' book “Solar Rain.” It is available through his website:


In terms of how humans are faring, I am seeing many clients who are facing major issues. Even Lightworkers who are not following their paths are becoming increasingly uncomfortable with the status quo. This is a nudge to get with your true work. We have talked about this before but it is becoming untenable to remain in jobs, relationships or other situations that are not serving you.


I heard that Dr. Joshua David Stone passed away. I do not know the details but he was a prolific writer of books about ascension. He also pioneered the Wesak Festival at Mount Shasta that has been held for about the last ten years.


We are being faced with many choices. I think one of the most important ones is to work on your own consciousness. I am currently reading Dr. David Hawkins ( fourth book on consciousness. It is called “Truth Versus Falsehood, How To Tell The Difference.” It is an amazing book. Dr. Hawkins is a psychiatrist who has worked on a scale of consciousness as a way of measuring enlightenment. He uses kinesiology (muscle checking) in scientific studies. Unfortunately most of humanity is barely at truth and integrity. This explains a lot.


In terms of defining consciousness, many of us might think of it as awareness. Dr. Hawkins also refers to it as “remembering our divinity.” If enough of us were to remember our divinity we would be living on an entirely different Earth. There would be reverence for life, peace, love, community, healthy families, people and children. We would be living in abundance doing what we came here to do. We would be free from fear and suffering.


This sounds good, doesn’t it? Well, it is up to us to raise our own consciousness. That is the only way we can ameliorate some of the Earth changes and create our new Heaven on Earth.


In reading Dr. Hawkins book, I am awestruck at humanity’s inability to be in truth and integrity. He says in the U.S. 49% of people calibrate at less than 200 on his scale, which is not even at truth and integrity. Globally that figure is 78%. Dr. Hawkins mentions that 22% of humanity is upholding the consciousness for the other 78%. Maybe this is a result of the laggard souls who came to the Earth as a part of the divine experiment to see if they could evolve spiritually. This is how loving the Earth is because she agreed to see if they would benefit by being here. She was in the fifth dimension. These souls started inbreeding with the souls of higher consciousness and then the Earth fell back into the fourth and finally the third dimension, where we are now.


Our ascension process is about going back into the fourth, fifth and higher dimensions. This is the Earth’s choice and we as Lightworkers are here to assist the process.  Work on your own consciousness, ground crew. Everyone one of you is needed to help elevate the rest.


As you can see, I have been busy working with many clients, teaching and studying. The most exciting thing I have just started is sun gazing. Hira Ratan Manek from India, who now lives in the U.S., has been doing this for about 30 years. He studied what the ancient civilizations did in India, Native Americans, what Hawaiian Shamans did as well as other groups. He took what they did and simplified if for these times.


It is safe to sun gaze one hour after sunrise and one hour before sunset. You can get the exact times from ( You start out with 10 seconds and build up daily another 10 seconds until you reach a total of 44 minutes. This takes about nine months. You can also put water in the sun for five to eight hours a day and then drink this suncharged water. HRM, as he is called, also recommends sunbathing to heal whatever needs healing. This needs to be done when the sun’s ultraviolet rays are between 2 and 5. You can get a little card for $2 that measures the rays. The last thing you can do is walk barefooted on the earth and build this up to 45 minutes a day.


HRM no longer has to eat food. He is fed with the sun’s energy. He tells us that the food we eat is a secondary energy source from the sun. You should not try to do this and stop eating unless you follow the process in the book and really want to do this. But in the sun gazing process you can heal emotions, fears, physical problems and also lose weight because you will have more energy from the sun and will not require as much food. In just doing this for three months you could experience amazing results. The e-book is available at:


If you choose to work with the sun’s energy and the Earth you might want to use the following prayer that my friend Louise Jones recommended:


Pray to Helios and Vesta, the Father Mother God of all 12 planets in our solar system:

Helios and Vesta. Helios and Vesta. Helios and Vesta. Let the Light flow into my being. Let the Light flow into the center of my heart. Let the Light low into the center of the Earth. Let the Earth be transformed into the new day. Let the Light flow into all my chakras and endocrine glands for my physical rejuvenation.


A Message From Mira, From the Pleiadian High Council
Through Valerie Donner August 25, 2005


Greetings, I am Mira from the Pleiadian High Council.


I speak to you today about many plans that are being made to assist the Earth with the ascension process. You are a part of this plan and that is why we want to speak with you.


Your Earth is evolving rapidly toward her goal of an elevated place in your solar system and beyond. We are in constant communication with her through our fleets that surround the Earth and through our representatives that are present on the surface or within the Earth. This is a complex process so many star systems of Light assist with these coordinating efforts.


Some of our technologists are working with the underpinnings of the Earth. This is to support the planet so that all does not break through at once. Like a birthing mother, she contracts and responds to the chemistry of the body. We are intending to make this as smooth of a process as possible. However there are some places where we also must allow the uprooting of whatever is necessary. This could create some intense earth changes in the near future.


You will begin to recognize the signs as they appear and you will be prepared. This is mostly with the surface of the Earth so it will affect you. You may find yourselves being guided to change your plans or to go someplace you had not thought of going to. You will listen and know what to do and where to be.


In the coming times you will begin to notice us coming closer than before. This is because it is necessary and timely. The groundwork has been laid. You are being prepared. You will see some miraculous sights that you may have not thought were possible.


Some of your children are aware of what is happening and they will lead you through the changing times. They are connected to us and will also bring some surprises with their own capabilities.


Be watchful in the coming days. We are monitoring potential events that could create some upheaval. We have been working hard to protect the innocent ones. As you know things could have been worse. You are doing much to assist the process too with your groups of Light. This is so important that you recognize yourselves as protectors of the planet and all forms of life on the planet.


As a courtesy we encourage you to play it safe when it comes to telling the world about us. Many already know we are here and many are still afraid. We will make ourselves known to those who are ready. This will happen in due timing. We are coming to a point where we might have to step on some toes. This is for the well being of the planet. We have had to hold back long enough.


We know how much you welcome us and have long awaited our appearance. We know that you have become impatient at times. Your linear time means nothing to us though, because we live in a different sense of life. We could go on in what seems like your forever but we know that you cannot. Your planet cannot sustain herself and you are getting worn out from living as you have on the Earth.


Little by little things will change. They are at a point of acceleration now since much is conducive for this to happen. With this in place you will move forward in ease and grace. You do not have to make it hard on yourselves. You can choose to go with the flow and know that you will always be safe and aware of what is coming next.


Predictability is changing. As you can see, from one day to the next life seems different. The weather is one part of it but there are many others. You more than likely do not even know who you are from one day to the next for you are changing so rapidly. It seems like it does not take much for you to realize something is different.


If we could speak to you in person we would give you a lot of love and support. We would encourage you to keep doing the amazing work you are doing for much is being accomplished by what you are doing. We would invite you on board our ships for rest and renewal. We would give you refreshments and allow you to bask in the loving energies. We would let you know that life is not all about what is happening on the Earth. There are easier places to be. We hope you can create some of them for yourselves even if we are not fully together with you. You can find them at times on Earth in your own way. 


We are your friends and allies. We love and support what is happening with you and the Earth. We cherish our connection and await our long overdue reunions. We watch over you and are in full swing with the Earth’s ascension process.


I am Mira with loving messages from the Pleiades.



A Pleiadian Song of Love
by Valerie Donner

We in Pleiades are the High Council of Light.

We oversee the Earth.

We see her so bright.

We love the Earth’s beauty

As you do too.

We love the people

And won’t give up on you.

We have been there before

Many times.

We go to your movies.

We stand in your lines.

We try to fit in

Like you do too.

It is not easy

And can be a zoo.

We know the conditions

Are not always fun.

You pick up the pieces

And stay on the run.

You are the most malleable humans

We have ever seen.

How you do it

Is remarkable and clean.

We love Earth’s people

To the very core.

That is why we come back

For more and more.

Soon the sadness of the third dimension

Will move into a state of ascension.

Then you will truly hear and know

How loved you are

And why we have not let go.

In Conclusion

The signs are in place and the help is here to assist us in our transitions in consciousness. There is a big responsibility for Lightworkers to stay aware, make new choices and to continue to uplift each other as we move through these interesting and chaotic times.


What we choose to do is powerful and important. We need to stay connected to each other for guidance and assistance. We need to remain compassionate to our selves and others. We need to play and lighten up too.


If any of you know someone who is awakening now you might want to order a new book that I am now carrying. It is called “The New Perspective, Ten Tools for Self-Transformation,” by Ron and Denny Reynolds. Denny is a well-known therapist in the San Francisco bay area, and her husband Ron has been in broadcasting for 50 years. Ron and Denny have been working with many spiritual teachers over the years.  The cost is $20 plus $5 for shipping and handling. For California residents tax is included in the cost.

Blessings, love and Light,
