Are on, the Lyran Council of Time, has called 2018 the Year of Amplification. We are moving fast into a new level of density. Fast is a relative term. It certainly feels like consistent movement without much slowing down. But that is the amplification of change that is moving us into the new. Change always brings unknown. That is an uncomfortable place for many, and a frightening place for many others. It is a creative state.
The creative state requires change. It requires a certain amount of risk. The famous Anais Nin quote sums it up nicely, “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” You must open to embrace change. That is creativity, that is constant in the physical realm.
When I sat to meditate on the energies of October, I was shown a network of connections that were squeezing, building up, releasing, rearranging. It didn’t feel comfortable. It looked like a neural network, and indeed there is much change within the brain that is occurring as we evolve into more conscious connection with the invisible realm. The 99% that builds worlds.
Yet there was an interesting component to it that felt like internal movement within something so large that it was almost imperceptible that something was changing. There was the juxtaposition of contraction and expansion at the same time. There was a sense of relaxation—something Areon has been mentioning a lot.
There was an acceptance of the flow of change that wasn’t trying to resist or force, just allowing the flow. The polarity that seemed like separation, was embraced as the potential of new connection. There was a sense of peace even with great change within. September’s energy moving into October is an extension of your willingness to remain open (out of the stress structure) to your flow of wisdom as you embody your desires for change here on Earth. Being the change, living your truth, expressing your Love through your example—whether a moment of saying yes or no.
Contraction and Expansion
Also within the October information is the energetic of birth contractions. The time of labor. The preparation for new life. Birthing into fourth density means there is preparation as the body of humanity deals with supporting the new—risking opening up (vulnerability) to expand. It’s uncomfortable. It’s unknown. And it’s magnificent to blossom.
What are you willing to risk for your expansion? Saying yes to something new? Saying no to something out-of-balance? There isn’t just a manual of how and when, there is a transformation into now and win/win. ;o) Ok, that was a fun rhyme, but true! There actually is a transformation into deeply embracing the now moment. Really being here. And then the next steps become clear. That requires courage within.
I don’t always get a message for an animal totem. This month butterfly (transformation) showed up. I was especially excited when I watched the final video for this month, because I didn’t know a little butterfly (perhaps a moth, couldn’t tell on that one) flew into the shot! Also, the Manzanita plant behind me (to the left) looks like the neural network in my vision. What cool synchronicities!
The butterfly transforms from a caterpillar into a butterfly, through what seems like a death. There is no guarantee of freedom and flight. Through the unknown, the caterpillar has no choice but to surrender to the process. Finally, the butterfly must risk pushing it’s way out of the cocoon that has kept it safe and sheltered. It’s no longer comfortable. What’s on the other side? It’s never even flown before.
The pushing out of the cocoon is a necessary step to having the strength to fly. In my message with the butterfly, there was a small one, then a large one that wasn’t flying normally. Another small one. Then finally a large one that was flying normally. I sensed the progression that mimics our own transformation. It seems small at first. Is anything really happening? Then sometimes it gets overwhelming, like it’s hard to find your (new) flow. Appreciate the small changes! Finally, the freedom of flight!
CALM THE CHAOS
When we are going through change, it can seem dramatic. Before that change occurs, we often feel chaos to varying degrees. But chaos is just a matter of perceiving the deeper patterns birthing new form.
That doesn’t mean figuring it all out. It means discovering it.
It means being willing to open to embrace the unknown.
It means being willing to neutralize in the midst of chaos so that you can resonate with the energy of improvement.
We spiral back to where we began…
October will continue this flow of change that has been constant and amplified in 2018. Your choice will be to open and embrace change (give Life a hug!) or risk remaining the same. You’re worth the effort to blossom.

Imagine that you live on a world in which every other being was affected by every thought and every feeling that you had. Imagine that your happiness, your joy, your laughter, your singing, made everyone and everything on that world feel better. But also, every tear, all of your grief, all of your anger and frustration brought everyone and everything lower.
Imagine that you, in that world, had control over your thoughts and your feelings. You had the means available to you to bring your thoughts and feelings up at any time. Of course, so would everyone else on that world. Imagine that you were learning how to do this, but many others were not. In fact, many others were so busy ‘surviving’ that they never gave it a thought.
Suppose that everyone else on that world believed that their fate was to die at a certain age and perhaps return to do the same things again and again. Suppose that you knew beyond a doubt that all of that was unnecessary.
Now imagine that you had some understanding of these things, but you had been brought up in a society that did not value them. In fact, people who did place some importance on them were looked down upon. People who believed things like these were considered to be foolish, out of touch with reality.
Of course, none of this is real. It’s just imaginings. Right? It’s just that it seems an awful lot like someplace I’m familiar with.
There are two published books available on Amazon that contain the collected messages received by Ron Head (that’s me). The first is The Wisdom of Michael, available HERE, and the second is It Rings True, available HERE

Feel like an Outcast? A Surprising Way to Freedom
We are drawing on the compassionate and timeless wisdom of The Gabriel Messages to provide insight and inspiration that we can apply every day of our lives.
The message from Archangel Gabriel this week reminds us that we have gifts that are very important to the Earth at this time, no matter what we have thought of them.
The Gabriel Message Card for this Week One Way to Freedom is by Total Acceptance
of Your Incredible Differences.
Growing up in the military, it was never cool to be different from everyone else. Try as I might however, I could never blend in as was required of me. I tried to be like a chameleon changing my color to please everyone, but it never worked. For most of my life, I felt as though I was strangely different than other people.
The awareness that I could not fit into other people's agendas, and that I did not think or feel like others, plagued me and lessened my self-esteem. I wanted so much to be loved and accepted as I was. Underneath it all, I was the one who was judging myself the most harshly for being different. In the wisdom of my soul, the separateness of this experience drove me to the spiritual path.
When I first started being coached by Archangel Gabriel in 1990, I was flooded with a new kind of love in my heart. It helped me to feel that it was my own acceptance and love of myself that could change the course of my life. I was shown that the qualities that I felt others dismissed in me were, in fact, the ones that allowed me to bring my gifts and talents forward to empower my life.
Many highly sensitive souls are especially aware of the often monumental ways that they are different. It often causes severe issues with confidence and self-esteem, and yet it is these unique and incredible qualities that the Earth needs right now. In fact since 2012, we are being amazingly supported by the Universe to be our most authentic selves and people seem to be more open to our gifts now.
Only you can offer your special gifts to the symphony of all life. Those aspects that may have most embarrassed you throughout your life are the ones that life is calling you to bring to the world. These qualities are your soul gifts that you have developed for lifetimes.
No matter what it feels like, you have beautiful qualities and inspiration to offer to the world. With patience and an open heart, these gifts are springing into your awareness. Do your best not to judge yourself. That innocent being within you is asking for your loving acceptance.
With your own loving-kindness and compassion for yourself, trust opens within you and more gifts are able to surface. All is in Divine Timing. Your support system is coming together on all levels to assist you. It is an important time for you to allow yourself to relax and receive knowing that all is well.
May I know in my heart and mind the special gifts my soul has brought into this life for me to use. I ask for greater Trust in myself and Faith that I am being inspired and guided in every moment. Help me to receive the inspiration within me at a deeper level than ever before. I ask for the strength and the courage to use my soul's gifts as a blessing to the world.
Please assist me to hear the song within me that makes my heart sing. Please give me the confidence to share it with others in appropriate ways.
I ask to see the Beauty that is opening within me, and to be a radiant Light to the world using my gifts and talents to serve in beautiful ways. May all that I do be in harmony with my Soul's purpose.
Thank you for blessing me so I remember that it is safe to expand into new levels of Love, Success and Abundance in every area of my life. For these and all my gifts and blessings, I say thank you, God. And so it is.

The Gabriel Messages Book #30
Your way to freedom is by total acceptance of
your incredible differences.
You have all been trained on this earth to fit in, to be a part of the way things have been, and to not go out of your way to change “what is.” This is the training and yet, deep down most people know the truth — that it is only by being different that great changes can occur. Creativity lies in not being the same as everyone else. It results from listening and moving to a different tune — the one within, not outside, yourself.
So many people go through life feeling like an outcast, as if there is something wrong with them because they are different from other people. We are saying that these incredible differences are your gifts to give to the world. It is time to accept these differences and follow the lead of your creative self. Trying to fit in stifles your spirit. Freedom comes from knowing that those parts of you that are different from others hold the key to the joy and success that you desire.
It is in the acceptance of all of yourself that you will grow. You cannot love only that which you consider good and reject the other parts of yourself. Those other parts have purpose also. Understanding this will lead you to the place of wholeness that you long for. Wholeness means feeling total joy and love within yourself, feeling connection with your God Source and all of life. This is only possible if you can love and accept all the different parts of your personality and human make-up.
Self-criticism is one of the biggest factors in causing personal pain and slowing growth. So it would seem helpful to find a new role for your inner critic. There are many situations where this type of voice can be useful. Simply tell this side of your personality that you do appreciate its efforts to make you a better person, and keep it busy by sending it to work in those areas where you need more order and organization in your life. When you set judgment aside, you will begin to feel an expansiveness in your mind that allows inspiration and creativity to enter. You do have these creative parts of your personality. These are the parts of you that strive for expansion and are linked to your Higher Power and to the Angelic energy.
If you call upon the Angel of Inspiration and Creativity to show you ways to expand and enrich your life, a powerful focus of energy will begin to work in this direction. As you begin to use this new creative flow, it will become stronger and stronger. Creative Solutions will appear where they were not apparent previously. You will begin to break through old patterns of thought that hold you back, and doors will open to bring more joy, prosperity and originality into every area of your life.
When you can accept all parts of yourself as unique and special in their own way, there will be a sense of peace within you. There will be less fear in following your inner guidance and intuition. You will begin to trust yourself and to express your uniqueness. Remember that all the humans who are revered and considered great by the world, are highly valued for their differences, not for their sameness.
Keep this as your intention. Choose freedom and expansion instead of fear and contraction. Ask yourself what you would do if you could do anything? What would make your heart sing? Then ask for assistance from the Angels to create your vision for the good of all, and know all things are possible. Miracles are the natural order of the universe. Be willing to have things change in your life for the better. Be willing to see the good within you and accept the incredible differences that make you who you are. And always remember, you are greatly loved — just as you are.
Your message from Archangel Gabriel today is:
Your way to freedom is by total acceptance
of your incredible differences.

14th. September 2018. Mike Quinsey.
Progress may seem slow but in reality so much is taking place. You are looking at worldwide events that are slowly but surely pushing the dark Ones back, and preventing them from being able to prevent good progress being made. What only few of you will know is that the Lightworkers operate at a high level, where they have the influence and power to set moves in position that will further advance matters to the benefit of the Light. There has always been a plan to oust the dark Ones who had reached a stage where they were lulled into false confidence into believing that they were close to taking over control of the Earth and its people. The plan has always been to see that once Humanity passed the marker, those souls who were ready would in any circumstances successfully reach Ascension.
If you could see the many souls overseeing your activities, ensuring your success and protecting you from the negative forces you would have no doubts whatsoever where Ascension was concerned. It is a very special time in your history as although few have recollections if any of previous lives, you have spent many thousands of years trying to lift the vibrations sufficiently so that you could pass the marker, and continue moving towards Ascension. Can you imagine the joy that rippled through this Universe, as you have yet to realise what a magnificent achievement your progress has been. It matters not that you have been helped along the way and that has largely been to ensure you were not interfered with, although for karmic reasons you have had to face many challenges on the way. Your friends from outer Space are drawing nearer and nearer to you and as you have already informed, are eagerly waiting to greet you on the Earth and welcome you to the higher dimensions.
Where in the past the dark Ones have infiltrated many aspects of industry and financial companies, they have in many instances been replaced with those who are of the Light and slowly but surely the balance is changing in their favour. It obviously takes time to undo what has been built up over a very long period of time, but success is taking place and it will continue until they are back and completely in charge. You will probably know that nothing of importance happens by chance, as all happenings are planned to help those involved to experience according to their needs. It may seem an impossible task to get the appropriate people together for such occasions and indeed it takes quite some planning. You are “persuaded” by your Guides to take certain actions that bring together those needed to play out the karma involved. Believe it or not, we can assert such control over you that you will do our bidding, but that is only in special circumstances.
Now that Lightworkers have been given a clean sheet where karma is concerned providing as you would say “keep your nose clean” – there is no reason why you should not continue to keep it that way. Certainly anyone who has lifted up their awareness, and is doing their best to live a positive life and avoiding being drawn into situations that are of the lower vibrations, will experience a trouble free life. You will still be tested but because of your understanding and awareness, you are very unlikely to drop your guard. Perhaps one of the more difficult challenges is to keep your cool when confronted by situations where you may lose it. Keeping calm at all times takes practise but you can do it, and will find that your confidence and demeanour will carry you through.
You are a great soul masquerading as a human Being, and you have limited consciousness mainly due to the low vibrational level you reside in. However, as the vibrations lift up higher and higher you will find that you have an increased level of consciousness, and gradually you begin to recall more about your true self. The changes are preparing you for Ascension when you will begin to know your true self. You are already a multi-dimensional Being as your Higher Self resides on the other side of the veil. Hitherto you have been unaware of your true potential but the time will soon come to merge with your Higher Self. You are a God in the making and that is your destiny, but for the meantime you will be bound by the happenings on Earth. Through it all you will undoubtedly evolve very quickly and as you do will get immense help all along the way.
By now those of you who have lifted your vibrations up will find that you can be in ones that are unsettling, yet can overcome them through your sheer power of concentration and control. Eventually it will be second nature to you and in any event the negative energies will weaken and have less affect upon you. You may find that as you progress that people like to be around you as they may not realise why, but they are comfortable and reassured by your gentle and loving vibrations. It would not take a lot of imagination to realise that your auric emanations are such that people can enjoy your presence, and feel the calmness and love that you project. Not just people but even animals can sense the upliftment from the energy that you give out. At some stage it will even have a healing quality and certainly make people feel good by being around you.
I leave you with love and blessings, and may the Light brighten your days and path to completion. This message comes through my Higher Self, my God Self, and every soul has the same connection to God.
In Love and Light.
Sauna For A Longer Life Span? Yes Please.
Dr. Laura Koniver, MD
Posted September 10th, 2018
Now this is a medical study I can really get behind, becauseI LOVE HEAT.And I love love love anything that boosts circulation — like grounding, sauna, steam room, hot baths, sleeping with a hot water bottle, hugs, massages, exercise (ok, exercise, not so much….)It just feels intuitively right to get your blood flowing, don’t you think?
Thats why I’m so thrilled that there have been so many studies recently looking at the health benefits of routine sauna.
Researchers had previously discovered that folks who used a sauna two or more times a week had significantly reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and death, decreased rates of dementia, and reduced risk of all-cause mortality (meaning they died less from all causes put together.)
Today’s study backs this up yet again.
This study was the largest yet, a meta-analysis of all of the medical literature on dry sauna from 2000 to 2017.
Published in Evidence Based Complimentary & Alternative Medicine Journal, April 2018 , researchers review 40 studies that included almost 4,000 patients and found:
Why is sauna so good?
Sauna raises whole body temperature which activates metabolic changes like a neutralizing inflammation, reducing oxidative stress, increase nitric oxide bioavailability, increased insulin sensitivity, and improved vasodilation.
In other words, raising the core body temperature and increasing circulation very similar to exercise.
So one take away from today’s study is this:
If you can’t exercise (or, ahem, like me, don’t particularly love to do it) then one good alternative is sauna.
A really great application for this is that disabled or mobility limited folks, who might find exercise and mobility harder to routinely do, can sauna and enjoy very similar benefits.
Just like with grounding — the folks who might benefit most from grounding (like severely ill, hospital or rehab bound patients, mobility limited patients, elderly patients and more) may be the ones that find it hardest to go outside… so the answer to this is indoor grounding tools.
In the same vein, the folks who might benefit most from routine exercise (like those recovering from cancer, those with metabolic and weight issues, those with high stress loads, those who must sit for long periods of time at work, those caretaking of others with very limited time away, those recovering from trauma, etc…) may find it harder to participate in regular exercise… so the answer to this is relaxing in a sauna to raise basal metabolic temperatures.
The Bottom Line:
Siginficant reduction in dementia, reduced risk of heart attack and stroke, reduced pain, reduced all cause mortality rates, improved blood perfusion to the brain and other organs, decreased blood pressure, improved insulin sensitivity, reduced asthma risk, reduced pain, improved quality of life and more…
…this is better than any single treatment, dietary modification, supplement or medication known to date!
This is HUGE news!
The only other thing I know that impacts so many different organ systems in such a powerfully positive way is grounding (for more on grounding, here is a huge list of medical studies, videos, grounding tools and resources just waiting for you.)
Interested in giving sauna a try?
The recommended routine is to sauna at least once a week and up to three times a week, for a time period of at least 5 minutes and a maximum of 20 minutes, with temperatures in the range of 176°F-212°F and a 10% to 20% relative humidity.
Hydrate before, during and after sauna, and be sure to fully cool off but recovering for several minutes resting at room temperature, taking a brief swim or a shower. Don’t sauna if you have a fever, an active inflammatory condition like a rash or hives, or are intoxicated.
No longer just for pleasure and relaxation, sauna might be one of the best ways to boost your over all longevity. If you are looking for holistic ways to really boost your health, a great Rx to start with might be:
If you do those (or even just some of those!) you are really on your way to allowing your natural, innate, always recovering, always resilient health to shine through for a lifetime.xoxoxo, Laura
This morning I awoke to find a horrible pressure ridge or buckling happening in the very middle of our kitchen hardwood floor. I is a big trip hazard next to our fridge & just barely goes down when I place my 230lbs standing on it...
What a disaster! I'd just had a fairly powerful time of meditating/listening to spiritual media & this challenge rather deflated me! It has been a monstrously difficult period as I am coming out of severe heart & kidney problems that have put me out of work & left me laid up for nearly 4 months in a new home we are trying to renovate- I have been pressed on all sides. I've been trying my best to move up the ascension staircase, get my health back amidst medications that have it in for me, maintain and renovate a large home that needs a lot build this website without funds etc... Yesterday this was all getting too me for I'm only scratching the surface of what I'm up against and it was odd to run into this new additional problem today...
I struggled with it for a few minutes then decided to at least try to be grateful for the new challenge as I asked the angels what to do about it.... hmmmm?
Slowly the answers started to come and it appears basement humidity is our issue - something common in the north with our humid summers plus we are on a wetland sight. More import was the question as to why this was happening - what was I supposed to learn here? It came to me that like the floor boards I have been experiencing pressure from all sides and was sort of bursting from it. That's not hard to see, but now what do I do about my own pressure problems and how do I learn from this?
I discovered two things. Firstly, in the future I need to give myself more room to expand and grow - not pack so much in or surround myself so tightly with tasks. I've been notorious for that and most of the reasons I take on too much are in trying to please others over my own needs. Nothing has to be done , really, nor will we ever get it all done... but if we "glow with the flow & flow with the glow" we will be lead to what is important in that moment of now.
Secondly, breathe! Step back from problems to observe them without emotions building. Those frustrations can completely block the flow of ideas while simultaneously putting us into ego where more friends of the ego thoughts can come and have a house party in your head sending one on a tailspin. Conversely, breathing is a powerful release, yes, but also actuates and brings in those divine energies around us. It is so simple and yet so powerful. Slowly one begins to realize or remember that everything is for our good and often serving to direct us to something better or keeping us on the right path, aligned with our highest best...
I hope this is helpful to somebody out there - we're all in this together & as our collective consciousness rises everything & everyone benefits
Please share this or leave beneficial comments as they come into your awareness!
Trying to Adjust With 3D Limitations
Posted: 03 Sep 2018 07:00 AM PDT
Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for LifeTapestryCreations.com
Summary of Brenda’s August 31, 2018, channeled 15-minute “Creation Energies” show at BlogTalkRadio.com/brenda-hoffman: In 3D, fear memories far outnumbered your joys. The last few energy bursts were designed to clear your personal computer of past fears and to reduce future fear elements clogging your memories. You were in 3D overload. Now, you’re starting anew in joy memories, and focus.
“The New Kid on the New Block” is the title of last week’s “Brenda’s Blog” – her weekly channeled blog for LifeTapestryCreations.com.
Brenda’s “Creation Energies” show and “Brenda’s Blog” contain different channeled information.
Perhaps you feel your creative well is dry.
Of course, such is not true for a variety of reasons, most important of which is your need to create anew.
You are not you of yesteryear or even yesterday. So it is you are evolving so rapidly you cannot decide what you need, much less want. Forcing you to ask, “Does it matter what I create because I’ll change my mind tomorrow?” A thought containing more truth than you realize.
Even though some of you have created a sense of stability, that creation is merely your starting point. Perhaps you created a new home or job – the results of which will be far different from what you now realize.
Such a creation might be a step toward the presidency of that company. A new home might be the beginning of your perfect home and community.
You are just beginning your 5D creation activities. So for most, the first step is to create a semblance of 3D comfort and ease.
We informed you a few days ago that you would create a comfort zone – not because you have to, but because such allows you to reduce fears about your future. For you are starting your new creation life at the same time you are internalizing the energies that have pushed your personal boundaries for some weeks now.
For some, those energy results are exhaustion or irritability because you do not yet understand when or how those internal changes will end. So it is you have a bit of an edge worrying about your future at the same time you lovingly accept that future.
You do not need to be concerned about your future. But because eons of fear and pain were stuffed deep within you, your go-to mode for any change including one of this size and gravity is fear and angst.
Such is why you created your comfort piece that is the beginning of your creations instead of your end goal as would have been true in 3D.
In 3D, you proclaimed your inventiveness with one or maybe two large creations assuming that you had been amply rewarded and that was all there was. That you could not wish for a great deal more and if such happened it was because you were lucky.
What is happening now is that your initial comfort creation is merely an ability test run. It is not an ending nor something you need to marvel at. But instead, a knowing that your creative skills are alive and well and that this is the beginning of something greater than you can now imagine.
For even though your recent or soon-to-be creations are perhaps wondrous, they are merely the first building blocks of your heaven on earth.
In 3D, you accepted what was allowed within your self-made parameters of fitting in and being a good citizen. Those boundaries no longer exist.
Many wonder how valid your creations are given that you are not certain your creations are something you want today for they were yesterday’s wants or needs.
Yesterday’s creation was merely to test your creation powers in a new world with new segments. This or these creations that will not be your end result, but instead a comfort creation with memories of 3D wishes.
Many of you pined for a certain lifestyle while of 3D earth that was never completely formulated for you were more concerned with what fears would likely overtake you than you were with the creation. In truth, at least two-thirds of your creation powers were devoted to maintaining a distance between you and potential fearful outcomes.
Now that you are of 5D, those fears are no longer part of your repertoire even though memories of those fears encouraged you to create your most recent comfort zone.
So it is your creation thoughts are something like, “If this new me is my reality, I would like a new home, but even if it isn’t, I would like a new home that is more comfortable than what I have now.” You could replace the word home with financial freedom, work, children, relationships and thousands of other wants that would make you more comfortable whether you were of 3D or 5D.
You did so because, as is true of the first explorers, you do yet not fully believe you will find new lands (creations) or be able to return to your home (your 3D comfort zone) until you completed that task.
Many of the explorers – as will be true for you – decided they preferred their new discoveries to their past earth lives, but until the new land was discovered all they could envision was their original life.
You are discovering new lands and deciding whether you wish to return home or continue with your discoveries.
But then, your 3D home is no longer a soft or available landing. In truth, you are more like humans who cannot return home because their home has been destroyed by fire, bombing, or some other means.
Your choice is whether you will accept your new world with open arms or continue to miss an old life that no longer exists. That inner discussion, that angst is what you are processing as you create the piece perfect for 3D you but not YET quite right for 5D you.
So it is you will create more and more of your 5D joy needs within the framework of this initial comfort zone once you realize that new you is your new reality and you are not limited to one or two creations.
You have no limits other than those you impose upon yourself. Which you are likely doing now as you adjust to new you without the fears and limitations of 3D. A new you in a new world indeed. So be it. Amen.
