Whew! Summer has arrived and it’s been pretty hot here in Maryland. I’m not a fan of warm, humid weather so I’m wishing I had an air-conditioned bubble in which to travel so that I wouldn’t have to feel this heat. And lest you think I complain about the cold weather, too, I don’t. You can always add clothing to get warm but there’s only so much you can take off…
We had a lot of celestial events last week and now Mercury is in retrograde motion. This means that the planet Mercury, when viewed from Earth, appears to travel backwards in the sky. That’s a metaphor for what happens with communications when Mercury is retrograde – they can get all backwards! Be careful what you are signing, writing, speaking. And because Mercury is retrograde everyone will be focusing inward so drive defensively. This is a great time to go inside and do that inner work that you might have been putting off. It’s also a good time to complete unfinished projects. Mercury doesn’t move forward until July 20 so be vigilant!
In the US we’re celebrating our Independence Day on July 4. What do you do to celebrate? My family’s tradition is to watch the Severna Park parade with the whole extended family. It’s fun to remember my Mom, who passed away in 2000, as she cheered for the parade every year. Please be careful and safe as you observe the holiday! And, since it is usually hot, I’ve decided it’s okay to stay inside in the air-conditioning and watch fireworks on TV! We also watch the movie ‘1776’ every year to remind us of the struggle for independence that the founding fathers endured. It’s also a really good movie.
NEXT CONVERSATION WITH THE OTHER SIDE: will be in Annapolis and ONLINE on Saturdayevening, July 13 at 7:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time. I hope that those of you who have been unable to join us during the weekday events will be able to carve some time out of a busy Summer weekend to receive some guidance from an angel, a guide, a loved one who has crossed over. At a Conversation several years ago John Adams came with a message for a participant and he might reappear in honor of Independence Day this time. We’ve had pets, future selves, giant angels, little cherubs and lots of members of family trees arrive with their guidance for the individuals and the group. Each attendee receives a personal message. If you haven’t attended a Conversation yet, or if it’s been awhile since you participated, then join us on July 13 for a fun an d enlightening evening!

Richard & I are a month away from moving into our new home in Severna Park. We’ll be highlighting some new offerings from that space so stay tuned for the announcements. [Of course, if you’d like to help us move August 1-4, you’d be welcome! And, yes, once again, we’re moving on our mutual birthday August 2.]
Have a fireworks kind of week, the good kind! And stay safe & cool.
The Heart of Humanity – Richard’s CommentaryJune 27, 2013 — Richard
Yesterday’s post was a message, as channeled by Rosemary, from The Divine Feminine. There is little I can say that will enhance their powerful message. But I do want to offer some thoughts and examples, perhaps in my way to amplify the message.
My first thought in encountering the words of The Divine Feminine comes from my training and work in indigenous cultures and their understanding of this “Heart” especially as it relates to ancestors. We, as living humans, stand on the bones of our ancestors; but their hearts beat right beside our own. Many of you know Rosemary as a medium who can speak directly to our ancestors, those who have transitioned in the near past and even ancestors from generations past. They are right here with us! So, when The Divine Feminine speak of The Heart of Humanity and say: “This is not about the individual heart of a single person but, rather, the collective heart of the humans both alive and in spirit” they include our ancestors in this Heart. Why is this important? They are right here with us, watching us, cheering us on. So often their messages through Rosemary are words of pride in our achievements, words of encouragement to continue to learn the lessons and evolve, words of comfort that they are with us! Their hearts beat within The Heart of Humanity just as ours do. Live and love within this energy!
My second reaction to the message is a recall of a divination card I often receive from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue, PhD. Maat is a Goddess in the deck that carries the message of “fairness.” (I’ve pictured the card here.) The key to understanding the message of this card is in the definition Dr. Virtue offers for fairness: “It’s when all parties involved surrender their personal agendas in favor of the greater good for the entirety of the group. This requires trust in the wisdom of the group.” And I add this requires trust in The Heart of Humanity.
I like this definition of fairness a lot. And it is little wonder that I receive this card a lot! What if our justice system were based on fairness: what’s good for everyone, the common good? How did The Divine Feminine put it? – “For the good of all.” With no qualifiers. We are all in this together. Sometimes we may not like this inclusive approach to “all.” But we are all members of The Heart of Humanity!
My third thought goes to our “community supported agriculture” (CSA) farm. As I write this, today is pick-up day. Each week we get a box of organic produce fresh from the fields. During this past winter we purchased a family share in the farm. Now we are getting our return on that investment. We paid our local organic farmer in advance and now receive a share. This share means we are part of a community, part of the common good; and we are sharing now in the results, good harvest or poor harvest (and so far it’s been very good!); we share the benefit as well as the risk. Our community farm is part of The Heart of Humanity.
The Heart of Humanity is about our Ancestors and what they worked hard for, it’s about fairness, and it’s about sharing in the common good. I hope you are enjoying your share in this Heart!
PS: Come speak with your ancestors! They are alive in The Heart of Humanity. Your next opportunity to participate in a Conversation with The Other Side is July 13 at 7:00 pm Eastern. You can join the Conversation online via a video internet connection, or voice/phone; and if you can come to Annapolis, join Rosemary live! Get the details here.
