The Loonies Are Loose

During the cosmic gateway of December 21st, 2012, higher energies flooded into the physical realm. This was not a gateway that opened and closed; it was a gateway that opened and stayed open.

Since then, our emotional and physical bodies have been working to adapt to the new, higher energies. Those of us who wish to evolve have been adjusting to this new reality. Those on the opposite end of the spectrum have been losing their balance and acting out in some surprising ways.

There have been numerous examples just lately of weird and shocking behavior. The victims of violence have been random members of the public and sometimes authority figures have been targeted. Even the perpetrators can be from positions of authority, such as the senior police officer who killed his family, then himself, but not before he set the house on fire and threatened to shoot the firefighters who came to put out the blaze! Yes, the loonies are loose, and more of them will be popping up out of the woodwork before things eventually settle down again.

Add in the increased risk factors you face from the global warming-induced violence of storms, tornadoes, fires and floods and you can see that the world has become a lot less safe than it used to be.

This is not a time to hope that your intuition will keep you clear of trouble. This is not a time to hope that you’ll have the right hunches at the right time to keep you and your loved ones safe. This is a time to guarantee such safety.

Your soul can foresee every risk that will come anywhere close to you in the near future. The question is, if danger lurks, will you sense the warnings well enough to steer clear of a danger zone?

The only way to guarantee a strong and lucid inner warning system is to practice connecting with your inner self each and every day; preferably, more than just once a day. If you don’t already make a distinct inner connection daily through a dedicated spiritual practice, it is vital that you begin now.

We have expanded our explanation of the Spiritualize technique on our new website. The Spiritualize technique is the perfect practice for the fast-paced lifestyle of the 21st century. It takes just one to five minutes to perform this incredibly powerful and uplifting practice. With it, your inner attunement will be operating optimally for a strong inner warning system.

Add in the facts that the Spiritualize technique can dissolve any challenge you face as well as transform your life into a happier, more healthful, and more inspired reality.

The updated Spiritualize technique is fully explained and detailed at our new website:

At least 77 people have been killed and nearly two million affected by heavy monsoon rains that caused floods in Assam, in what the prime minister on Monday called one of the worst such disasters to strike recently.Prime Minister announced an aid package of Rs.500 crore. The mighty Brahmaputra river and many of its tributaries have breached their banks after downpours, washing away thousands of homes mostly made of bamboo and straw, as well as roads, bridges and power lines.Authorities have given shelter, food and medicines to thousands of homeless people, and deployed mobile medical teams to prevent the outbreak of disease.(Reuters)

Photos: Thailand’s ordeal by water

Posted by Admin on November 9, 2011

http://in.news.yahoo.com/photos/thailand-floods-in-pictures-1320733871-slideshow/

 Bangkok, one of the favourite tourist destinations of the East, is also a city that climatologists have warned for years to be sinking. Two spells of flooding this year — including one in March, supposedly the country’s dry season — have claimed hundreds of lives and destroyed livelihoods. The death toll in this year’s post-monsoon flooding, which began in late July, has exceeded 500. An area the size of Kuwait has been underwater. Food, clean water and medication are the needs of the hour, but relief workers are struggling to reach supplies to far-flung villages where disease and electrocution threaten survivors. Rising floodwaters have shut down industrial estates, threatening to hit the carmaking industry (leading Japanese automakers have plants in Thailand). Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, enduring her first grueling test since she assumed power in August, is facing the ire of the people who are threatening to break flood barricades that are keeping inner Bangkok dry while marooning surrounding suburbs.

Floods threaten Bangkok as north starts to rebuild

Posted by Admin on November 7, 2011

http://in.news.yahoo.com/floods-threaten-bangkok-north-starts-rebuild-104703813.html

By PAILIN WEDEL – Associated Press | AP – 2 hours 12 minutes ago

BANGKOK (AP)Floodwaters from Thailand‘s flood-ravaged central heartland pushed farther into Bangkok on Monday, as residents of long-submerged provinces north of the capital started to rebuild their lives.

The water slowly advancing through Bangkok’s northern and western neighborhoods is threatening the city’s subway system, two key industrial estates and the emergency headquarters set up to deal with the flooding that has claimed more than 500 lives nationwide.

Evacuations have been ordered in 12 of Bangkok’s 50 districts, with residents of the northern district of Klong Sam Wa told to leave Monday. The evacuations, which also effect parts of several other districts, are not mandatory, and many people are staying to protect homes and businesses. But the orders illustrate how far flooding has progressed into the city and how powerless the government has been to stop it.

The flooding began in late July and some provinces to the north of Bangkok have been inundated for more than a month. The waters have started to recede in recent days, revealing the massive cleanup effort that lies ahead.

For two months, Anan Dirath was forced to live on the second floor of his home in Nakorn Sawan province. But now that the water has receded to knee level, it’s time to clean up.

He armed his two teenage children with mops, scrub brushes and garbage bags. Wading in the water, his family began scrubbing dirt off the walls and collecting the garbage around the house. He said the dirt was difficult to wash off and he has had to scrub the paint off to get rid of it.

“Oh my pretty home. It used to be a pretty two-story home,” he said Monday.

In nearby Nakorn Sawan town center, where the water has dried completely, the government sponsored a cleanup day last week when roads were scrubbed down to get rid of the oily mud left from the floods. Back hoes were used to carry garbage away.

The cleanup also has begun in some parts of Thailand’s ancient capital of Ayutthaya. Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra is to visit the province Tuesday to witness recovery efforts.

Yingluck says a plan to be put before the Cabinet on Tuesday would allocate 100 billion baht ($3.3 billion) for post-flood reconstruction.

Her government has come under fire for failing to predict the threat to Bangkok. Residents also have been frustrated by widely differing assessments of the flooding situation from the prime minister, Bangkok’s governor and the country’s top water experts and officials.

Floodwaters in the city continued to flow south Monday toward the still-unaffected central business district. In Chatuchak, a few miles (kilometers) north of there, water was nearly knee deep around Mo Chit Skytrain station, the northernmost stop on the capital’s elevated train system.

Water was also rising near three subway stops in the same area. Both mass transit networks are functioning normally, though some exits have been barricaded and closed.

Chatuchak is home to the government’s national flood relief headquarters, which is housed in the Energy Ministry — a building now surrounded by water. The relief headquarters moved last week out of Bangkok’s Don Muang airport after it, too, was flooded. The city’s main airport remains open.

Also in Chatuchak, water has begun approaching a main road near the Mo Chit bus terminal, a major gateway to northern Thailand.

Live Beyond Realization

Posted by Admin on June 29, 2011

June 24th, 2011 by Rev. Mark Kimmel

The following post is a joint venture with my celestial friends and Andromedan brothers and sisters. It contains information that I supplied based on my research. Nonetheless it is an important and timely message.

By admitting the false veneer of the 3rd dimension, you can take a big step forward in your soul’s evolvement. Seeing what goes on about you as the drama of others, and not becoming engaged therein, is a further step forward. It is what comes next in your personal development that is being called forth by the celestials and by your brothers and sister from other star systems: Live beyond realization.

We are living in extraordinary times in which the truth about events is slowly emerging. For many years you have been subjected to misinformation and lies, and the residual effects thereof, as perpetuated by governments and the mainstream media. The reporting of these is skewed to maintain the veneer of the 3rd dimension.

  • The crash of non-terrestrial craft (E.g. Roswell, New Mexico)
  • Back-engineering of alien technology from crashed UFOs
  • The extent of government cooperation with alien races
  • The truth about Earth’s moon
  • The truth about events on September 11, 2001
  • Mind control experiments and their on-going usage
  • The extent of environmental damage cause by the BP oil spill
  • On-going damage caused by “Aerial Spraying”
  • The purpose and uses of HAARP
  • Radiation leaks at the Fukushima nuclear facility in Japan
  • Radiation leaks at the Fort Calhoun nuclear facility in Nebraska

If you have any question about whether or not we are living in extraordinary times, review the following sample of “natural disasters” that have occurred over the last eighteen months.

  • Earthquake in Haiti — magnitude 7.0 (January 12, 2010)
  • Earthquake in Chile — 8.8 magnitude (February 27, 2010)
  • Earthquake in China — 6.9 magnitude (April 14, 2010)
  • Volcano in Iceland — ash across Europe  (April 16, 2010)
  • Flooding in Pakistan — 20% of country affected (July 2010)
  • Earthquake in New Zealand (February 22, 2011)
  • Earthquake & Tsunami in Japan (March 11, 2011)
  • Tornadoes in Southeast U.S. — 1,092 occurrences (Spring 2011)
  • Flooding of Mississippi River (April-May, 2011)
  • Flooding of Missouri River (June 2011)
  • Arizona wildfires (June 2011)
  • Flooding of Souris River (June 2011)

What is more important than the events, known or hidden, is your reaction to them, or your lack of reaction to them. Everyone is playing out roles that were agreed upon prior their incarnation in this 3rd dimension. The victim of an earthquake knew at a soul level that this would happen to them. People killed in tornadoes agreed to live to this end.

What is most important to recognize is that from a soul level all is being done out of love, all is being done to allow a soul to grow, and all is being done to assist others to awaken to the larger reality. We all live in oneness whether we recognize it or not. An individual who lives an extraordinary life serves as a light for those that get to know him or her. An animal that agrees to live in a cruel environment does so in order to help the humans involved awaken to the extent of their cruelty.

Phase one of moving to a higher consciousness is to recognize that there is more going on than is being reported by the mainstream media. This involves researching other sources (Personal experiences, Internet, and word of mouth) — all with careful discrimination — to determine the truth behind the larger picture.

The second phase of awakening is to see events, both what is reported and what you glean from other sources, as background for the on-going drama, and not necessarily involving you. Become an observer of events (a loving observer) who allows others to play out their particular role without being someone who overly empathizes with victims, who rescues others, who inserts their opinions into the lives of others, or who attempts to control the behavior of others. In other words, conform to the Law of Allowance.

The third phase of awakening into consciousness is to set aside all that surrounds you, and to put forth the effort to raise your individual vibration to a place where you no longer are a part of the drama: “Being in this world but not of it.” Learn to think from your heart. Raise your vibrations so that you can act as a beacon for others who may not yet be fully awakened and who are searching for answers. Thus the phrase, “Live beyond realization.”

There are many ways to raise your individual vibration. Find the one that resonates with you and pursue it diligently, for these are the days of change and you will need the detachment that comes from being one who stands above the chaos if you are to ascend to the new Earth.

You are being asked to raise your vibration to the 5th dimension so that you might play an active role in creating a new civilization for Earth based on that lighter way to live. This will in turn assist all in the universe to ascend to a brilliant new way of being. Earth is the center-point of this vast transformation. The next few months will reveal the path of each individual, your path. Will you put forth the necessary effort to turn away from the 3rd dimension, and align with the transformation of Earth and her humans to a lighter existence, an existence based on love?

I am grateful to be involved with messages such as this one and trust they are of value to those of you reading them.

In truth, Love and Joy,

Mark Kimmel

Australia floods: Towns could be swamped for week

Flooded communities across eastern Australia could be under water for more than a week, with the cleanup bill expected to hit billions of dollars, a state official said Thursday.

Days of torrential downpours have left parts of central and southern Queensland state inundated, flooding thousands of homes and businesses, cutting off roads and forcing the entire populations of two towns to evacuate.

The rain eased Thursday, but river levels continued to rise in many locations as high waters made their way toward the sea. Communities already swamped could remain under water for up to 10 days, Queensland state Premier Anna Bligh warned Thursday.

“It’s an enormous disaster,” she told Australian Broadcasting Corp. radio. “The recovery … is going to require literally billions of dollars from federal, state and local governments (and) insurance companies.”

Floodwaters inundated 120 homes in the southeast Queensland town of Bundaberg, forcing the evacuation of about 400 people overnight, Deputy Mayor Tony Ricciardi said. Police had to rescue two people from the roof of their flooded home.

“This is a one-in-100-year event,” Ricciardi said. “We won’t see this again in our lifetime. Well, I hope.”

Officials were evacuating all 100 residents of the town of Condamine by helicopter on Thursday, county Mayor Ray Brown said. A river running through Condamine was still rising and threatening to put the whole town under water, he said.

In the town of Theodore, the military evacuated all 300 residents by helicopter Wednesday.

Queensland launched a disaster relief fund for flood victims with 1 million Australian dollars ($1 million) in state money. Prime Minister Julia Gillard pledged to match that amount with federal funds.

Hurricane adds to Haiti’s woes, 4 dead in floods

Posted by Admin on November 8, 2010

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – Hurricane Tomas flooded camps of earthquake refugees, turning some into squalid islands Friday as it battered Haiti’s rural western tip, while largely sparing the vast homeless encampments in the shattered capital.

Aid workers rushed to guard against the spread of disease as the storm moved into the region where thousands are infected with cholera.

Driving 85 mph winds and a lashing storm surge battered Leogane, a seaside town west of Port-au-Prince that was 90 percent destroyed in the Jan. 12 earthquake.

In one refugee camp, dozens of families carried their belongings through thigh-high floodwaters to a taxi stand on higher ground, huddling under blankets and a sign that read “Welcome to Leogane.”

“We got flooded out and we’re just waiting for the storm to pass. There’s nothing we can do,” said Johnny Joseph, a 20-year-old resident.

Four deaths were confirmed by Haitian officials, all people attempting to cross rivers by car or on foot in the mountainous region to the west of Leogane, on Haiti’s far southwestern tip. Two more people were missing in Leogane.

Tomas had earlier killed at least 14 people in the eastern Caribbean. On Friday it came ashore as a Category 1 hurricane, pummeling Haiti’s southern peninsula, before moving on to the rest of the country, eastern Cuba and the Bahamas.

It could be days before the storm’s impact is known as reports filter in from isolated mountain towns cut off by the flooding. But as officials took stock and aid workers rushed to contain flood damage and the widening cholera epidemic, the storm left harsh reminders of poverty’s toll on the Caribbean nation.

“We have two catastrophes that we are managing. The first is the hurricane and the second is cholera,” President Rene Preval told the nation in a television and radio address.

He could have included a third. Ten months after the magnitude-7 earthquake shook the capital to the ground, the devastation can still be seen in scores of collapsed buildings and sprawling refugee camps.

The disasters mingled in Leogane, where milky brown floodwaters filled quake-cracked streets and cut off a camp that was home to hundreds of refugees.

“We have an assessment team there now and there’s a couple towns that have been damaged from some flooding and some wind damage,” said Steve McAndrew, head of operations for the American Red Cross.

The storm’s center was about 140 miles (230 kilometers) northwest of Port-au-Prince, where a thick gray canopy of clouds hung over the capital and a steady downpour turned streets into flowing canals that carried garbage through the city.

Haitian authorities had urged the 1.3 million Haitians left homeless by the earthquake to leave the camps and go to the homes of friends and family. Buses were sent to take those who wanted to evacuate to shelters.

But many chose to stay, fearing they would come back to find that they had been evicted from the private land where they have been camped out since the quake, living in donated plastic tarps, or that their few possessions would be stolen before they returned.

A near-riot broke out amid a poorly coordinated relocation effort at the government’s flagship camp at Corail-Cesselesse when residents began overturning tables and throwing bottles to protest what they saw as a forced removal.

About a third of the camp’s nearly 8,000 residents ultimately went to shelters in a nearby school, church and hospital, American Refugee Committee camp manager Bryant Castro said. But there was no space for many others, who were forced to ride out the storm in the open.

“Yet again there is very poor planning and last minute decision-making that scares people who have already had zero communication about what their future holds,” Oxfam spokeswoman Julie Schindall said.

In Leogane, protesters took to the streets in the pouring rain, beating drums and blasting horns as they lambasted officials for failing to build a canal along a river that has overflowed repeatedly in the past. Flood waters filled people’s homes, swirling around the furniture and framed pictures.

“When it rains the water rises and causes so much damage. We want them to dig a canal to move the water,” said Frantz Hilair, a 28-year-old motorcycle taxi driver. “We have a mayor and the deputy, but they don’t do anything.”

Local authorities put the blame on the federal government.

“They have a reason to be mad. The central government hasn’t done anything here,” Deputy Mayor Wilson St. Juste said.

Farther north in Gonaives, a coastal city twice inundated by recent tropical storms, police evacuated more than 200 inmates from one prison to another.

Poverty has steadily worsened in Haiti over the last century, with an unending spiral of political upheaval, flawed international intervention, frustrated aid attempts and natural disasters. Post-quake reconstruction has barely begun or even been funded; less than 38 percent of the money pledged for rebuilding has been delivered, including a promised $1.15 billion from the United States.

Aid workers are concerned the storm will worsen Haiti’s cholera epidemic, which has killed more than 440 people and hospitalized more than 6,700 others.

Preval called on Haitians to help stop the spread of the disease.

“Water is going to bring the bacteria, and people who are moving around can infect other areas,” he said in his radio broadcast. “Use hygiene, cook the food you are eating, boil the water you are cooking with so we don’t have the epidemic of cholera abscess into something even worse.”

U.S. Marines were standing by on the USS Iwo Jima off the coast with relief supplies.

As the hurricane neared Cuba’s eastern tip, that country’s crack civil defense forces evacuated 800 people from Baracoa, a city that often floods during inclement weather.

Meanwhile, a cold front hammered the western part of the island with heavy rains and a storm surge that flooded some low-lying parts of the capital, Havana, and closed the seaside Malecon thoroughfare.

In the Dominican Republic, to the east of Haiti, floods damaged at least 1,700 homes and forced the evacuation of more than 8,000 people, emergency operations director Juan Manuel Mendez said.
