NEWS FROM ROSEMARY

Arp 142Whew! 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! Get more info here

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 Commentary

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 Maatcarries 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!

ROSEMARY’S EXPLORATION: The Heart of Humanity

A message for you today from The Divine Feminine:

“Dear Ones,

We are here today to speak of the Heart of Humanity. This is not about the individual heart of a single person but, rather, the collective heart of the humans both alive and in spirit.

The Heart of Humanity is an energy of immense, unselfish, unconditional Love. This love for all humanity is the impetus behind humanitarian efforts of all kinds. Great spiritual teachers of all traditions have cared very deeply for the well-being of the people around them and for humanity at large. In fact, ‘humanitarian’ implies that the caring is only for human beings but this kind of caring and love extends to all Life, to all Beings, including animals and even plants.

Think of the teachings attributed to Jesus and Buddha about compassion and love for all. They were teaching about the Heart of Humanity. The Dalai Lama and other holy people of contemporary times teach the same message of caring for all.

Now notice how many preach a different story of separateness, of difference that allows one to feel ‘better than’ others, of deservedness vs. undeserving. There are those who are preaching the concepts of ‘mine vs. theirs’ with no concern for the common good. This does not come from the Heart of Humanity but from the source of greed that depends on fear of lack. This has no heart energy in it at all.

Some who claim to be religious people have embraced the teachings of separation and greed but have couched their preaching in a language that they think speaks to a common good. They have either deluded themselves into this belief or have chosen to mislead others by consciously using language to cover up the energy of greed and separation.

Great spiritual teachers offer their teachings to those who are ready to hear. They share from a place that they realize is greater than their own ego. They do not attempt to coerce or to impose their beliefs on others. They have too much respect for the free will of humans to try to convert someone to their way of thinking. They merely offer and allow the hearers to decide for themselves what they will accept.

This attitude for sharing spiritual teaching comes from the Heart of Humanity. The energy of ‘allowing’ is a more loving energy than that of ‘coercing’ or ‘converting.’ The Heart of Humanity is a gentle energy.

But this same energy can become fierce in the face of threats to the common good. When energy is needed for the preservation and protection of a group of people the Heart of Humanity spurs human helpers into action. This is the response you see in outpourings of help after disasters on Planet Earth.

The Heart of Humanity also compels people to work for the evolution of consciousness on the Planet. Teaching about the connectedness of all, that what is good for one is good for the group, that each individual has a responsibility to all others – these teachings stem from the Love and Compassion in the Heart of Humanity.

‘For the good of all.’ This does not have qualifying factors as some would propose when they separate people into groups who deserve and those who do not. When one makes a choice that seems good for an individual or small group at the expense of or that harms others, then one is not operating from within the Heart of Humanity.

‘For the good of all.’

Let this become your mantra. You cannot separate yourself from the matrix of all humanity. You can only choose how you will make your choices as one node in that matrix connected to all other nodes.

When you choose to work for the highest good of all humanity, you light up your node and add light to the entire web that connects all humans on Planet Earth. Your choices for yourself become clear as this light shines upon the possibilities. And YOU benefit from these choices as well.

The connectedness is a fact. There are those who know this fact and there are others who misguidedly believe that they are isolated from others and that they can make choices for themselves without regard for others or even at the expense of others. Sadly for them, they cannot choose to be isolated from the connection. Thus, the energy of harm stays in the energy grid and seeks to attach to like energy. It will be enhanced by similar nodes and will come back to them magnified.

This is what the traditions teach about karma. The energy you put into this grid seeks like energy and returns to your node magnified.

Choose to energize the Love and Compassion of the Heart of Humanity!

And So It Is.”

NEWS FROM ROSEMARY

solsticeHappy Solstice! Today’s the day!

And Happy Sun in the sign of Cancer the Crab!

And Happy Full Moon on the 23rd!

A busy week in the skies!

Let’s talk about the Summer (in the northern hemisphere) Solstice first. This occurred at 1:04 am Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) TODAY, Friday, June 21 when the Sun went into Cancer. We know this is the longest day of the year, the day with the longest period of sunlight. Let this be a metaphor for you to let in the maximum amount of Light that you can absorb into your own energy field. This is a powerful time that invites us to accelerate our evolutionary process by accessing inner wisdom to shine that Light onto our path ahead. What are you doing for yourself in these days of transformation that take you in quantum leaps forward in your growth? Meditation? Time in Nature? Spiritual gatherings with like-minded others? Give yourself permission to explore new ideas so that you can experience exponential growth at this time!

The Sun is in the sign of Cancer and for the next month we’re called to focus on home, on nurturing, on family. Enjoy this energy and notice how your attention goes to nurturing others and yourself. What a beautiful time, astrologically, to receive a message from The Divine Feminine about the Heart of Humanity! [see below]

On Sunday, June 23 at 7:32 am EDT we’ll experience the Super Moon Full Moon where the Sun is in Cancer and the Moon is in the opposite sign of Capricorn. This is occurring when the Moon is at its closest point to Earth this year. This weekend would be a great time to do a Solstice/Full Moon meditation and get a vision of the next three months for yourself.

Pay attention this week to the ways that you ignore your own needs or those of others. Have you been wanting to schedule that self-care appointment but have been putting it off? This is the week to pick up the phone. This could be as simple as getting a massage or a manicure or it could be the time to finally schedule that Scientific Hand Analysis to learn your Life Purpose or to join a coaching program. The energy is the ‘do it now’ energy and it’s a good time to nurture yourself. When you have taken care of your own needs, you are better able to serve others from the Heart of Humanity.

HIGHLIGHT: Get some guidance about the coming months for yourself and have some fun while you get your message! The July Conversation with The Other Side is on a Saturday evening in Annapolis and on your computer or phone (yes, you do not have to be in Annapolis to participate!), July 13 at 7:00 pm EDT.Each Conversation contains awesome guidance for all who attend as well as personal messages from angels, guides and loved ones for each attendee. At the last Conversation we had everyone from Grandma to a gigantic Angel to a poet. And Mother Mary came with a message for all of us. These events are recorded so that you can listen again afterward. Please join us and learn what you need to know NOW! More information is here: website And there’s information on the website about hosting your own Conversation with The Other Side in the comfort of your home with a few friends plus online guests can join from anywhere in the world.

School’s out here in Maryland and we’re enjoying Summer activities. I hope you’re having fun, too.

This is a special week – Love yourself through it!

Storm Surge in Your Life! – Richard’s Commentary and Glenn Smith’s Obituary

I had one of those days when it may have been better to remain in bed under the covers! Yes, it was another storm surge kind of day! It built up early after a late night wrestling with video production, technical issues, computer sluggishness, internet connectivity glitches. The storm actually started early yesterday. I hope it surged to its climax today as I lost a DVD player (don’t ask!) and made two trips out to get the produce from our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm (their delivery truck broke down, so they were having a stormy day too!).

But I do have a perspective on all of this I need to share:

On May 9, 2013, a friend and colleague, Glenn M. Smith, died suddenly and shockingly, in Huntsville, Canada. He had been ill for some months with strange symptoms attributed to ALS and then Lyme disease. I learned of this diagnosis and thought, OK, treatment is available. Then I received word he had passed. This was truly a sudden and violent storm!

Glenn and I met at a Baeth Davis Scientific Hand Analysis event and then stayed in contact and met again at another Baeth Life Purpose event. Baeth saw potential in both of us as caring, sensitive, yet strong men and suggested we figure a way to work together. We started a blog, PowerfulSensitiveMen.com and posted a few things along the way. But we both were busy with other things and then Glenn fell ill.

I have been asking myself, and him, what we should do with the blog. And I got a pretty clear answer today to write this post, post it on the blog and then see what happens. First I want to post part of Glenn’s obituary that appeared in the Toronto Star on May 24:

Glenn Smith passed away peacefully in Huntsville on May 9, 2013 of ALS and Lyme Disease. Glenn was born on April 27, 1958 in Richmond, BC, to parents Wesley and Lorraine. He is survived by his beloved partner of 7 years, Sharon Miller…Glenn was a tradesman, a massage therapist, an author (Lotus Petal) and spiritual guide. Glenn loved to play and have fun. He acted, learned the trumpet and joined a dance class in his forties. He loved to test his body through athletics – as a football and baseball player, as a runner and as a triathlete. He loved the outdoors – boating, swimming and skiing. He was an incredible cook. He was a meditator for over 30 years and a spiritual man. He loved quietly and gently being of service to others. Mostly Glenn loved Sharon. He and Sharon shared a deep love and connection that inspired others.

Glenn was a “powerful, sensitive man.” He is truly missed. I regret not having the opportunity to pursue our work together in the physical but I have a sense we will be working together in another format; because for me the work needs to continue. I know that he agrees. And whether or not our joint blog continues is only a matter of form.

I have more to say about this and Glenn, but for today I want this post to reflect his gentle nature and sweet presence I feel as I write. I will write more about storm surges and their impacts tomorrow.

My little rain-storm today was nothing compared to what Glenn and Sharon have been through. Perspective is always so sobering and so calming to that inner storm!

ROSEMARY’S EXPLORATION: Storm Surge in Your Life!

Are you surrounded by storms in your life? It seems as if everyone has something going on that feels like a big storm or a series of little storms, but this is how people are describing the transitions and transformations that they are experiencing.

‘Maelstrom’ might be a better word to use, for there seems to be a lot of turbulence associated with the lessons we are all learning these days.

You might not believe it but being in this turmoil is not as bad as it seems, when you look at the big picture of your life. Of course, when you are in the midst of a storm, it’s difficult to focus on anything but the storm. However, if you lift your thoughts and consciousness to a higher level, you will see that there is a lesson to learn in every storm.

In the physical world, storms often come during the hottest part of the day and serve to break the unrelenting heat with a bit of a cool down. The air can be clearer after a storm. Some people relish a good storm with thunder and lightning and others hide in fear. Certainly there are physical storms that must be respected for the force of Nature is very powerful.

In the meta-physical world, the storms of your life are inviting you to shift into that higher consciousness so that you can complete the lesson presented and move on with your life. After the lesson is learned you no longer need the storm!

Look around you and notice where the energy feels turbulent. Is it in a relationship? A job or business? A living situation? Your finances? Your family? Your health?

Then ask yourself if you are focusing on the storm or on the lesson to be learned. They are two different things.

If you find that you are able to see only the storm then you might need to ask for help from someone who can help you get a different perspective. There is no shame in this. In fact, it is only the strong person, who is ready to evolve and grow, who is willing to seek assistance in that growth. The storm can blind one to the other possibilities that are around. It can be helpful to have a guide.

If, however, you are focused on the lesson that is being presented to you through the storm, then you will not be distracted by the storm and will continue to move forward in your personal growth and the evolution of your consciousness. The more you practice keeping your focus on the lesson, the less will be the impact of each storm that invites your growth.

Time is speeding up for humans on a path of evolution and the storms seem to be more frequent and more turbulent. This signals that our growth is happening in huge leaps, not in tiny steps. Think of a baby chick who has developed inside a nice, secure eggshell environment. There comes a time when the chick must work hard to emerge and continue its growth in the harsher outside world. And, yet, the real growth happens after pecking its way through that shell.

You are pecking your way through the shell of old patterns of thought, limiting beliefs, behaviors that will not serve the new you. Keep working at it. You will break through!

See each lesson as guidance about the next step for you. Each storm is clearing the air so that you can see the way forward. Keep working on yourself and your growth will be in quantum leaps and the reward will be great.

Weather the storm today by looking for the lesson that leads you to your best tomorrow.
