Straight From The Heart

Dear Ground Crew,

It is feeling more like the ground crew with each passing day. With all of the changes and chaos on the planet right now we are clearly being called into service. Other Lightworkers are telling me how much their pathways are opening. Is this true for you? I don’t think we can sit around and wait for things to happen any more because they are happening.

Whether you have expanded your Light work or are simply praying for all of the places, people and animals where the earth changes are occurring, you are most likely spending more energy assisting the Earth. Sending love, Light, healing and energy to these places of impact is of great importance. Sending money or going there is also something you might be called to do.

In tandem with these changes our physical bodies are also processing these changes with the Earth. Have any of you experienced leg, foot or joint pains, or other physical challenges lately? I know many people who are feeling that something is going on with their bodies. Archangel Gabriel (Benu) suggested we make the following statement: “I am processing the energy for the planet but I am choosing not to take it into my body.” This should assist the body so that you can glide more easily through the changes. Whatever the Earth experiences we also experience because we are one.

Some of us are tired and require more rest. This is due to the negativity on the Earth. It takes a lot of Light to maintain your self with these energies.

Other suggestions for right now are: meditation for 20 minutes two or three times a day, yoga, extra supplements especially greens like Spirulina, Chlorella, etc., drinking more water, being in nature, exercise, hanging out with other like minded friends, joining groups for support, chanting, prayer, and clear intention.

Clear intention is important. We need to focus on the beauty and joy we are creating as we release the old. The Earth is cleansing away this old negative energy and so are we. Our intentions for what we want our new planet to be like around 2012 are creating what life will become.

Every event is a wake up call. It is metaphorical for what is happening with the planet and with us. “Wake up everybody,” is what I sometimes find myself saying. As increasing Light sheds on the non-truths, I wonder how much our sleeping members of humanity are awakening. What do you think, ground crew?

I am beginning to see others who were not so aware before talking about events. Some are beginning to get angry. When the right time arrives and people really begin to see the truth we will be in for some gigantic changes. This is the time of our awakening. It is part of the shift of consciousness. It is the time to let true freedom ring but first things have to fall apart. As the old ways of doing things break down personal empowerment will prevail. People will realize they have to count on themselves for their survival and livelihood. This reminds me of the Message from the Elders are Old Oraibi (the Oraibi, Arizona Hopi Nation):

When the Clock Strikes Midnight

“Many of you have come here for years now asking the Hopi about the prophecies, and when the clock will stop ticking. You have spoken with our elders, and some came with good heart, and others with bad heart, some left never knowing their own hearts and could not hear from the heart of the Hopi.

You always left here always fed with something from us, for your thirst for knowing, and always blessed from our hearts.

Now the time together is short, shorter than you know, and our hearts are heavy.
You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour.
Now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour.

And there things to be considered:

Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your Truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
Do not look outside yourself for the leader.

This could be a good time!
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 on to the shore.
They will feel they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.
Know the river has its 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 the water.
See who is in there with you and celebrate.

At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally. Least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt. The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.” (

Yes, ground crew, you will find many prophecies. More than likely everything you need to know is coming to you whether it is from your own inner guidance or through others. Your own inner guidance is where the truth lies. It is where the energy is within your heart. What is your heart telling you? It is about following the energy and not getting too caught up in the negativity around you. Be the observer and work to find peace. Be peace.

Much is depending on us. We cannot hope to change the rest of humanity. We are powerful enough to create the critical mass that will allow the Earth and those members of humanity who choose to remain on Earth to shift. Pay attention to your own consciousness. Develop your greater awareness of events and where you place your thoughts. Where you place your thoughts is where your energy goes. Remember consciousness is everything. When we leave our embodiments we take our souls and our consciousness with us. Make this your focus.

One thing science cannot do is measure consciousness. They cannot get their scientific hands around it yet are studying it. (Dr. David Hawkins in “Power Versus Force” and other books has created a consciousness scale based on kinesiology that is profound.) As Lightworkers we are constantly being impacted by lower consciousness. Do you wonder how wars could continue and how precious life could be destroyed for monetary reasons? Do you wonder about the souls of those who are self serving, who lie, abuse others, who are violent, and kill animals? This list could continue on and on. It is an indicator that you are in higher consciousness where you know that life is precious. It is a gift from the Creator. In your consciousness you could not fathom doing some of these destructive behaviors. What you do to one you do to all, yet much of humanity is unaware of these facts.

There is much more to consciousness, however, suffice to say it is about love, service to others (not service to self), compassion, truth, healing, beauty, reverence for life, peace, generosity, caring, making choices that are for the highest good of all. So what we are seeing now is the final stages of the outplaying of the dark energies of the Earth and the return of higher consciousness and Light. The ground crew have a responsibility to awaken to being co-creators with God and to take the planet back in joy and love.

Look around you, ground crew, what are you doing to fulfill your part of the responsibility? Complacency is what most of humanity is doing. We cannot be complacent or we will not be fulfilling our contracts. Listen to your heart and begin anew each day on your pathway of Light. Your Light will spread like the sunshine into the lives of others. Before you know it we will be home.


Spread Your Light
by Valerie Donner

Spread your Light
On the wings of joy.
Let rainbows of sunshine
Fill your eyes.
Extend your thoughts
Of healing and peace
Unto the Earth’s heart do release.
The winds of time
Are blowing quickly now.
Turn up your Light
Into a shimmering glow.
The love in your heart
Will see you through.
Anchor in higher consciousness
In all that you do.
Take the hands of others.
Reach out in thought.
Help them to see
They are a product of
The Creator and cannot be bought.
Spread your Light
Far and wide.
Let it bake the cold pavement
And heal the divide.

Mira's Message From the Pleiadian High Council
Through Valerie Donner November 1, 2005




I am Mira from the Pleiadian High Council. We seek to inform you of impending events. We want to clarify some of the recent occurrences and offer our assistance to your understanding and pathways.


As we have told you before we are involved in the Earth’s ascension process. We are constantly involved with the monitoring of your earth changes as well as your governmental processes throughout the Earth. We are involved with all aspects of the ascension plan. We serve as the representatives of the Creator. We are your allies and you need us.


We tell you this not to make you dependent upon us or to make you feel weak, but to strengthen the direction of the Light and those who serve the Light. We are all needed for your planet is in trouble. The series of events within your political systems are little compared to the upheaval that will be coming. The earth changes are only in the early stages even though they may still seem grand to those involved. There will be many more for the Earth needs to release. She is releasing pent up negative energies like violence and wars created throughout history. Each place that is affected is allowing for new life. Each person who leaves during these times is serving higher purpose. Be grateful.


Know that all changes affect you even if they are not in your back yard. They will begin soon enough to affect your pocket books. If you make your spirituality your mainstay you will not be as affected as others who place money as their focal points.


There is a powerful Light that is coming to your planet at this time. It is laser like and goes where divine plan directs it. Your sun is playing a significant role in this process. It will soon become active again as the flares bring intense changes. This means that your weather will continue to be in a state of flux. You will have more severe patterns and this will continue.


Throughout these changes humanity is faced with trying to cope with what is uncertain. This creates a tendency to remain unsettled and can make one feel on edge. Well, you are on edge; you are on the edge of a whole new way of living. We think you will be joyous when things begin to stabilize but this could take while. It will not be too long before we also will be making ourselves known in ways we have been unable to do in the past. We know some of you have been long awaiting this time. We have work to do together.


In these times of change you will be searching deeply for new understanding and truth. You will be doing soul searching as you seek to find new ways to serve and to live your lives. You may be getting back to basics like gardening and living closer to the Earth. You will begin to live more tribally in communities that care for each other. It may take a while for you to learn this but some are setting the stages for this already. Those who have been at the forefront of some of the earth changes are already showing you how much change is occurring. You are seeing the adjustments and the necessary adaptations that many are being faced with on a daily basis just for survival.


Take nothing for granted except your own inner knowingness and guidance. Keep your hearts open. Learn from these events. Assist where you can. Know there is a massive clean up that must occur before your planet can have a fully sustainable future.


There will be eye-openers the size of some the eyes of your recent hurricanes. You will begin to see how much your governments have deceived you and how much you have given away your power. Your new jobs will be to take back your power, to stand for the truth and the Light, and to speak up. Others are beginning to see more of the truth. They are feeling deceived by your politicians and this will activate them. Even some who have been unaware are beginning to remove their blinders. We want you to know this so you can proceed with hope.


You might be reviewing what is of importance in your lives. Is it is important that you place so much energy on your possessions? Are your possessions possessing you? You might start realizing that there other areas of focus. Being attached to the material can hinder the spiritual process.  At some point you might be finding yourself grateful for still ground, water, food and a place to rest your head.


We have never seen a planet with such complexities as the Earth at this time. Your daily lives for the most part are not simple. They require patience and persistence just to make the daily functions that should be simple and easy. This is part of the plan that keeps you distracted. It takes so much of your energy that you do not have enough time to look around you to really see what is happening.


You will be getting back to simpler lives and this should reduce the stress levels that many on your planet experience. It will be a matter of choice. Some of you can start implementing these choices now. Do you know that your stress level affects the Earth? You might not have considered this before but the Earth feels what you feel. When you are at peace, living organized and coherent lives the Earth benefits. If you want to serve both the Earth as well as improve your own life you might want to rethink what is creating stress for you. Perhaps the stressors have served their purpose and you can make some appropriate adjustments.


It is a little soon to tell you some of the forthcoming events that will have a major impact on your lives. We can only inform you that everything is a part of the Creator’s plan. Your awakening is also a part of this and it is divinely timed too. Every part of these changes is orchestrated so your awakening is most significant and called forth as an urgent matter.


If your life is not working you are in trouble. Make your life work and get yourself out of trouble. This will serve both you and the Earth. It will pave the way for the greatest good in service to the Earth and to the Light. We are with you in more ways than you know.


I am Mira in loving service to you and the Earth.



The Earth’s Ascension


This is from one of my client’s daughters: “My name is Brittany Gamlen and I am eight years old. This is what will happen when the Earth ascends. This story came to me in a sleeping dream, and my angels told me to share this with the world.


In my dream I was on a boat in Hawaii with my family and relatives in October 2005. In the distance I saw a dark black cloud and the sun was only three fiery flames. The net day I bought a newspaper becaue I wanted to read about what I had seen in the sky. On the front page of the newspaper was a picture of what I had seen the day before, and in big letters it said ‘World to Form into New World in 2008.’ I continued my vacation in Hawaii with my family. Then when the fall of 2008 arrived myself and my family and other people were told to get in boats. We were told that all the animals of the world had already gone on ahead a couple of days earlier. We started to sail away and saw our houses come off the ground and over our boats. We sailed with our house over us. Then the land slowly started disappearing behind us and soon the world we knew was just water. Slowly we sailed across a bridge made of light. And then “thump” we hit land. We docked our boat and found a place for our house. Then after everyone came over to the new world we saw a the old world rise up into the air. Then with a “poof” the earth changed into a person. She was the most beautiful mother earth as a person. She landed right on the new world where we were. We could ask her questions and talk to her. And the planet Venus was no longer a planet in the sky. Venus took mother earth’s place and was now the being that was supporting our new world. She is very strong and has a masculine energy to her.”


In Conclusion


Whether your idea of ascension comes through a dream like it did for an eight year old, or you are getting prophecies from the indigenous people or other channels, you are clearly living in a landmark time. There is work to be done on the inner planes and in the outer. We are at the end of the race when it takes all that you have to make it to the destination. Together we can do it. May we all participate to the best of our abilities.


Blessings, love and Light,


Valerie Donner
