Earth Allies small

I had the pleasure to make the front and back cover for this book, also a little treat inside. It has been a journey to make all these drawings and under the guidance by my good friend Vanessa, I made these drawings with guided colors. I hope you enjoy the story as much as I did. I think it is a story for the whole family.

I would like to ask you to sponsor this incredible gifted writer, so that her dream can come true. Publishing this story in hardcover. You can buy this e-book on: Amazon.com

What are your ambitions for your writing career?

Vanessa:   I see myself writing more books. I can’t say how many or how often but, I plan to write when I’m compelled to spread a message. I have a few ideas and a message for future writings.  In fact, I have already started on another book.  It’s a slow process because I want it to evolve into the story that needs to be told.

Which writers inspire you?

Vanessa: I can’t say that any one writer inspires me. I enjoy reading a variety of works by various authors with their own unique writing styles.

In response to your question – my esoteric beliefs and my need to spread a message of love inspired me to write Earth Allies.

So, what have you written?

Vanessa:  I haven’t written much. I’m a novice. Through the years I’ve written a few poems. One of my poems, Lonely Heart, is published in the Silent Journey, a compilation by the International Library of Poetry.  I wrote a short story for my youngest daughter, Lacee’s Back Yard Adventure.  I may reinvent it and publish it as an e-book.

Presently I’m preparing my e-book, Earth Allies for publication. It’s a short story for kids ages 9 to 13.  Earth Allies is about a young boy who joins with fairies to prevent a worldwide disaster.  If all goes according to plan Earth Allies will be published this year.  I am going to independently publish and the process from beginning to end could take up to three months, which is great.  If I were to traditionally publish my book it could take as long as eighteen months before it is actually published.
Where can we buy or see them?

Vanessa:  

Earth Allies is available as an e-book on Amazon.com/US; Amazon.com/UK; Amazon.com/CA; and Amazon.com/AU.

My poem, Lonely Heart, is published in the The Silent Journey, a compilation by the International Library of Poetry. It’s also on Amazon.

 

Give us insight into your main character.

Vanessa:  Eleven year old Ethan is the main character.  He is somewhat of a loner. Ethan is very loving and compassionate.   He helps is mother with his litter sister and chores around the house.  He is also a good friend.  Because of his loving nature and pure heart he possesses the ability to facilitate a remarkable event.

What genre is your book and what draws you to it?

Vanessa:  My book is fiction. I’m drawn to fiction because I can really let my imagination rule the pen.  I find when I’m in that zone, my imagination takes over and writing comes easy.

Tell us about the book cover and who designed it?

Vanessa:  Well, I actually have two different book covers.  Initially, I asked you Lisa to create my book cover.  Lisa’s art is beautiful and I knew she could capture what I wanted to convey on the cover.  When I asked Lisa to do the cover, she accepted and offered her service as a gift.  I was very touched by her loving, generous nature.  It’s not often that I am the recipient of such a kind gesture and I am very grateful.

I had set a deadline for myself to publish my story as an e-book.  As I got closer to the deadline the cover wasn’t ready.  Lisa was ill and couldn’t work on the book cover.   I told her to take care of herself and that I would get someone else to do the cover.  I didn’t want Lisa to feel pressured to get the book cover done when she was dealing with a health issue.  So, I found Digital Donna.  Her work was good but it was not exactly what I wanted.

I launched the e-book last year on Amazon and soon realized I needed to change the book cover. After seeing some of the other books and the book cover design, I knew I had to replace the book cover on Earth Allies.

I don’t remember the sequence of events but Lisa and I talked after she was on the road to recovery. It was then that I realized I had hurt my sweet friend’s feelings when I decided to get another illustrator for my book.  I felt really bad.  My intention was to release Lisa from feeling obligated to do the book cover since she was ill. I was only concerned for her well-being. We cleared up the misunderstanding and Lisa still wanted to do the illustration.  She asked questions about the story to get a feel for what I wanted. Lisa created the book cover, interior boarder and the back cover.  I am so happy with her illustrations.  Lisa’s drawings depict what my imagination gave me for the illustrations. This venture is a first for both of us.  Lisa’s beautiful work is getting more exposure and I believe the book cover will catch the eye of kids 9 – 13 years old, drawing them to read my book.

I’m very fortunate to have Lisa as my friend.  She is a talented artist.

Do you think the cover plays an important part in the buying process?

Vanessa:  Yes, absolutely.  The cover has to be eye catching.  Especially when writing children’s books. The cover has to grasp their attention to get them to read the book.  It has to stimulate their imagination.

How are you publishing your book and why?

Vanessa:  I wanted to take the traditional route but after researching and comparing the pros and cons of traditional publishing and independent publishing, I decided to independently publish my book.  It’s not easy to get a book traditionally published.  It involves quite a process.

When did you decide to become a writer?

Vanessa:  I didn’t set out in life wanting to become a writer.  I’ve written stories and poems as a hobby, and as a way to release emotions.  But, three years ago I felt a need to write and spread a message of love, unity and compassion. That’s why I wrote Earth Allies.

Where do your ideas come from?

 Vanessa:  My ideas come from my spiritual beliefs and my personal esoteric experiences.

For your own reading, do you prefer e-books or traditional paper/hard back books?

Vanessa:  There’s nothing like holding a hard-back book in your hands. I also like the smell of it as it begins to age.  Mostly, I own paper-backs and a few hard-back books. I do however, own a Kindle and I love it.  It is very portable and I can take it with me anywhere and read my favorite book(s).

What would you say are the main advantages and disadvantages of self-publishing against being published or the other way around?

Vanessa:  If I understand your question, you’re asking what are the advantages and disadvantages of traditional publishing and independent publishing.

Well, when I researched traditional publishing, I learned the benefits of traditional publishing is wide distribution, an advance, they do the editing, formatting, and cover design. There are no out of pocket expenses.  The disadvantages are, in some instances it can take eighteen months before publication.  They have power over the title and cover of the book.  The royalty payments aren’t that great and you need an agent to break into traditional publishing.

When an author self-publish (Independent Publishing) all rights to the book is retained. Full control of the cover design, layout, and title is under the control of the author.  The author chooses the editors, proofreaders, layout, and cover design.  Publication takes about three months from the time the book is submitted for publication.  The disadvantages are out of pocket expense for editing, proofreaders, cover design, copyright number.  Marketing resources are limited, and the book may not sell well.

If I could retain all rights to my book and be involved in the marketing process and creative alterations of my book I would prefer to go traditional.  As an independent publisher I have to do all the work.  But, it is a good learning experience and I embrace it.

 

Where do you see publishing going in the future?

Vanessa:  I see more and more indie authors getting their work out there.  I’m not saying traditional publishing is a dying art but it is very difficult to go that route.  Independent publishing will continue to grow.  It affords anyone the opportunity to publish a book.

How can readers discover more about you and your work?

Vanessa:  Readers may visit my website: http://www.vafarriawritings.com where I write about spiritual things, and post poems by various poets.  You will find information about my book there. I’m also planning to advertise on the social networks.  It’s a lot of work but I’m enjoying the process.

Repost: Adrial – Bring On The Light Show!

As I was reading through one of my 2012 spiritual diaries I found this article gem that I think still applies to these days. Thanks to Leslee and Adrial to directing me again to these beautiful post.

This article is written by Leslee Hare:

One step we can make, closer to DISCLOSURE…

Adrial has shared with me that there is a tremendous Galactic Light Show that is preparing to unfold. Please be aware that this will happen gradually, over time, as the power of the Light Show meditation increases (please see meditation guidance below)…

We believe that our Friends’ ships are cloaked… What I learned last night is that we are actually cloaking Gaia, also, and we can now meditate to release this cloak and be able to see our brothers and sisters in the skies!

I’d like to share what I was shown, in preparation for meditations that we can all do between August 16 and August 18, to help our Star Families reveal themselves…

I’m still on  my trip to Pagosa Springs, so I will just share a brief chat below… please ask questions through comments if you like. This original post is here: http://wp.me/p2saNx-8J

Here is the mediation that Adrial says can help us to release this cloaking grid from Gaia:

1. Please sit under the sky if possible, or near an open window.

2. Please envision Gaia with a 3-dimensional lattice woven through Her many layers and dimensions: Please visualize the light grid as brilliantly shining and pulsing, its energy flowing steadily from point to point and filling Gaia with love, compassion, and connectivity between all life force beings, both inside and outside of Her physical realm.

3. Next please look at Gaia’s 3-dimensional Cloaking Grid, which also penetrates her many layers and dimensions. Please see this Grid as being held by Beings of Light, who are located on Gaia’s surface, on Her Inner Surface, and inside Her Interior Regions (such as Telos and Agartha). Between these Beings of Light, and flowing outwards into the atmosphere, please envision an electromagnetic cloak, appearing like a soft billowing fog, rolling like clouds and covering the view of the multitude of lightships which lovingly surround Gaia and us.

4. Please look into your heart region, and feel the love that Gaia, our Star Families, and WE feel for our beloved companions here on Gaia.

5. Please see yourself as drawing back the curtain of the Cloaking Grid, gradually revealing to all who wish to see, the glorious display of lights and colors that come to us from the countless Light Ships that surround us, high above our atmosphere. Please understand that this revealing will be like a magnificent fireworks display, all around the globe… Like a dance of aurora borealis, flickering and rainbow-colored, and able to be seen from any point on Gaia’s surface.

6. Please feel the joy and excitement that so many will feel when we realize that we may now access at any time, this beautiful Light Show in our heavens. We will soon be able to see our Friends and Loved Ones!

Please share this meditation with as many as you feel may be inclined to help release the Cloaking Grid, and unveil our Friends in the skies!

With deep love and brilliant Light,

Leslee

(Here is some description of what I was shown last night…)

(I was driving across Oklahoma, towards Amarillo, Texas…)

…And I was asking to be shown/understand what are the reasons we cannot see them more
[8:54:07 AM] Leslee Hare: They told me that there were actually 100 ships right in front of me, just over the horizon, so I was looking at that part of the sky
[8:54:33 AM] Leslee Hare: I noticed that it looked different… we cannot see the stars near the earth…
[8:55:01 AM] Leslee Hare: What they showed me is that many of us understand “cloaking” in a limited way.
[8:55:18 AM] Leslee Hare: Ships CAN and DO cloak themselves, but GAIA also cloaks herself!
[8:55:27 AM] Leslee Hare: So others can see in, but we cannot see out!

[8:55:48 AM] Leslee Hare: There are two types of “light-grids” on Gaia
[8:56:36 AM] Leslee Hare: One holds the light, and this one we are familiar with… the other holds the cloaking of Gaia… And we can meditate as a group to release this cloak… there are enough of us now who wish to see and understand

[8:56:42 AM] PREDRAG BRACANOVICH: LIKE A SEE THROUGH MIRROR…
[8:56:56 AM] Leslee Hare: exactly, exactly!!! 😀
[8:57:38 AM] Leslee Hare: there are also three layers to both of these grids, and they are made up of beings on the outer surface, the inner surface, and in the interstital regions like Agartha
[8:58:11 AM] Leslee Hare: so the beings involved triangulate the grid… it is really a lattice, penetrating the entire planet…
[8:58:37 AM] Leslee Hare: and as I was driving, I could see this in the darkness, much like how I can see electromagnetic auras
[8:58:49 AM] PREDRAG BRACANOVICH: WOW…
[8:58:51 AM] Leslee Hare: it looked like billowing fog laid over the low horizon
[8:59:10 AM] Leslee Hare: yes, I wanted to drive all night so I could watch the stars…

[9:00:06 AM] Leslee Hare: So I want to put this into a post for people to share… There is something we can do to meditate for the 17th
[9:00:46 AM] Leslee Hare: (chuckle) that’s sort of right… I still am erasing doubt, as you know, of course… but this understanding helps so much… of course its perfect!
[9:01:05 AM] PREDRAG BRACANOVICH: SAME DATE CAME TO ME…. 17/18 WILL BE DATE WHEN MILIONS OF SOULS WILL SEE SHIPS AND THE JUPITER/SECOND SUN THROUGH DAY…

Energy Update Spike in higher frequencies 

awakening5dhealing

We’ve got a spike in the frequencies friends. Stay centred, avoid conflict, sidestep tricky people, places or situations until this passes. Expect fear driven mainstream news to peak, those unawakened become more disturbed and disoriented by waves of higher vibrations washing over Gaia. Talking heads, high profile elite, celebrities will increasingly display malfunctions as lighter frequencies disrupt lower vibrational beings’ energy. Expect to see strange, bizarre events worldwide as well as closer to home.

It’s all getting very trippy friends. We are being drawn to wavelengths of higher dimensions, to access these spaces we release karmic load from our mind body soul system. Many will fight this, they will feel unable or ill equipped to look inside, to meet their shadow self, to release their demons, their trauma and their hurts. To squash these emotional energies, particularly when cosmically they are being loosened like flour through a sieve for release…

It’s Ok Not To Be Ok

SoulFullHeart Way Of Life

By Jelelle Awen

It’s OK not to be OK….putting down the masks of OKness or being positive all the time. Being vulnerable to show what is really going in your heart. Sharing your tears, your fears, your concerns, your pain with those who can feel you. Being real with what parts of you are feeling and reacting to in every moment. This self permission space allows the feelings to BE, to be felt, and eventually to heal.
 
Why do we need to receive this self permission to feel? The 3D world operates on the suppression of vulnerable feeling. Analyzing feelings rather than actually dropping into the emotive ground of them. Numbing and drugging our feelings with ‘anti-feeling’ drugs…relating to our emotions as if we need to go into battle with them. As if they are diseases and illnesses that need a cure. As if they are evidence of our…

The Universe brought me back.

Falling leaves

This drawing is done by me according a challenge that I did on Facebook. The challenge was falling leaves with colors burgundy, olive and copper. I thought this was a nice drawing to come back with as it shows also rebirth for me.

I decided after a major operation in 2015 I needed some time for myself. I thought it would be only 1 year but now it is almost two years. And funny enough, on the verge of a new operation scheduled on the 18th of October, the Universe brought me back to write again on this blog. I have much to tell of the spiritual endeavors I have been having in those two years and the ones that are still coming. As for my dreams, I will start to write them down again in January 2018 as I still will be recovering from the operation.

It’s nice to start writing again , even though I never stopped writing in my spiritual diary. I also picked up my art as shown above. I also would share articles that I feel that I can correlate too and feel positive. No more fear mongering messages.

As for now I want to share this amazing podcast from Jennifer O’Neill about dreams. Some questions about my dreams are answered, some are still unanswered.

That is all for now. I wish you all a good Sunday.

The Ugly Side of Ascension Nobody  Wants to Talk About

Infinite Shift

Are you feeling low energy, anxious, resentful, or overwhelmed despite the “magical” full moon eclipse? I’m typing this while cuddled in bed feeling physical pain and a foggy, gloomy state of mind. If you’re feeling like this too, I want you to know you’re not alone.

AND, it doesn’t mean your positivity, spiritual practice, and wise woman power are all f*cked up either.

The massive astrological alignments and 5D ascension shifts mean we are “jumping up a level” but why doesn’t it feel good? Especially when there are so many people posting blissful elation and joy, you may be judging yourself for feeling low… I know I’m struggling with that right now.

The truth is, with so many souls waking up in the world right now, we may be feeling the weight of what we have yet to process, compounded by the confusion, frustration and chaos the newly awakened are…

It has been a tough year.

Hello everybody,

It has been a very tough year this year for me. After being knocked down and drained by my endometriosis , I am back up after a  major surgery. I am still recovering from it, but after three months I start to feel better.

I wanted to share some cloud pictures I made and again, just a few days earlier, blessed with a double rainbow. I hope with the beginning of the new year, I can start blogging again.

Thanks for being patiently with me. Enjoy the pictures.

Below pictures are taken just before we moved to a new place.

 

This below pictures are taken in my new home in Linden. Can you see the cloud ship/ cloaked ship?

Then just three days ago , we were blessed again with a view of a double rainbow.

 

 

If you want more info or bigger pictures, please click on the pictures.

Love Lisa

I feel more spiritual then ever, but don’t feel like reading spiritual stuff

The Swan Queen

I don’t know about you all, but me it seems on the one side, I feel I am not interested in reading articles anymore. Not in normal ones , and also not spiritual ones. I just can’t get myself right now to commit to something like that. That is the reason why I want to take a two month break and see where it takes me. I took up the interest again to draw and create again.

On the other hand it seems that I get more insights and more spiritual experiences, whiteout reading all those spiritual articles, to know where I stand and where I am going. The only thing I feel I can commit to is to post once in a while my dreams. They make a huge part of me.

So if it gets a bit of slow on my blog, don’t you worry, I just need a recharge…a BIG ONE

Love and light to you all and see you on the other end

Lisa

AA METATRON: THE PURIFICATION PHASE


https://sacredascensionmerkaba.wordpress.com/2015/05/14/the-purification-phase-aa-metatron/

as channeled by Anna Merkaba

The purification phase of the determined ones has reached the pinnacle of truth benevolence and might. The purification phase of the chosen ones has been completed and a new set of universal decrees has indeed been bestowed upon the ones that have chosen to walk amongst the souls who wished to partake of said experiment. For indeed the veil of forgetfulness is thinning daily for you now, allowing more light, allowing more benevolence, allowing more understanding of self and all that is to shine through into your psyche and all those stationed on GAIA.

For indeed the experiment has been a phenomenal one, and the experiences gleaned by the beholders of said realities have been accumulated, processed and documented in the Akashic records for eternity.

For through the experience of pain and suffering, through the experience of effervescence and joy, through the experience of benevolence and peace, through the experience of all emotional octaves of the spectrum of human understanding of BEing, a new cognition has indeed been formed in the universal lore.

A new cognition of and understanding of said emotional structures of BEing. For indeed the planet on which you are presently finding yourselves is a unique haven, a unique haven whereby you are able to experience BEing as you are! BEing through the emotional rollercoaster prevalent on your planet.

Being able to experience all the spectrums of the emotional wheel, the freedom of choice, the freedom of co-creation. For indeed it is so, For indeed all of you who are presently residing on Gaia, all who have, are and never have been part of the experiment of the human wheel of karma, all of you have chosen to experience said realities through the vehicle of expression you call the human body.

For the world in which your reside, the experimental matrix if you will, has allowed all of you to experience that which you wished to, experience that which indeed was necessary and desired by your higher selves in order to glean, grow and expand the consciousness of that which you are. Nevertheless, the time has come to fully awaken to that which indeed you are, releasing the last bits of debris and misconception of your benevolence, might and power. For indeed you, all of you are mighty powerful beings! Mighty powerful co-creators of that which you wish to see unfold in your world.

And so, as always, we wish to remind you to keep steady in your benevolence, keep steady in your encounters with all that you see, with all that you are bathed in daily, all the “positive” and “negative” spectrums of your daily activities.

Be mindful of that which you read, be mindful of all the activities rapidly unfolding in your world, all the way understanding that, that which appears to be chaos, is building order, order through chaos, as we have indeed conversed to you prior. And so, we command you, we love you and we bow before you, for truly you are the masters of the divine, you are the masters of that which is, and you are the ones writing human history as you breathe, as you walk, as you talk, as you think as you dance, as you sleep, as you invent, as you CREATE.

Everything that you are, is that which is. Everything that is, is that which you are! Keep steady in your stride as you walk toward freedom from the amnesia which has beset you upon your entrance into this world. Keep steady and allow, allow the beautiful encounters with your higher selves, and the benevolent truth of that which you are to flood your psyche. Understand that you are ready, ready to fully awaken, ready to take your righteous place in the universe as co-creators, as gods, for truly you are! Believe, know and remember. Remember, know and BE, BE in the moment, of eternity, BE all that indeed you have come here to uphold.

Stay in balance, stay thoughtful of peace and harmony through unconditional understanding of all colors of the spectrum of life. All colors of the spectrum of life and the emotional wheel of human experience.

Know that we are walking with you, foot in foot and hand and hand. Know that it is so. For it is!

That is all that we have for you now. We love you. We are with you goodbye for now.

Suzanne Baker Hogan: Congratulations 3D Graduates!

May is a month of graduations. It is a time when many celebrate the completion of their academic requirements. These graduates are applauded for accomplishing what they set out to achieve. They are ready to leave their familiar surroundings and set sail for new horizons. And so, courageously, with a mixture of excitement and sadness, they say goodbye to the past and reach for the unknown.

It strikes me that this is exactly what lightworkers are doing right now too. We are graduating from this old school of 3 D, after years of tireless study. We have pushed ourselves through the toughest courseloads imaginable and endured lifetimes of homework. Boy was the curriculum hard and hands on. And longer than we ever planned. We got sidetracked from getting our degree so many times that we became perpetual students. It seemed like we were never going to leave campus.

But now, we are. We have passed our final exams, no matter how gut-wrenching some were, and we are ready to finally move on. Yes, there were times when we thought we would never survive the darkness. But the light of graduation day is here. And guess what we’re receiving: masters degrees, everyone of us. Because, yes, we are masters simply remembering this about ourselves. We are experts in our field and don’t have to prove a thing. We decide what we want from now on, and we are graduating from 3 D.

Looking back, what stands out most is how we learned to forgive others so that we could finally forgive ourselves. We healed our past grievances together and felt our oneness in full. What a joyous surprise this was! Looking back, we were guided perfectly to remember the love within ourselves. And what awesome, infinite love it is. We had no idea on that first day of school.

Now is our time to graduate from the old world of conditional love and limitation, no matter how comfortable it seemed. And yes, most likely we will get nostalgic. Maybe we’ll attend a few alumni dinners or go back to mentor younger classes. We might even choose to become teachers at our old school.

And perhaps the future will look a lot more familiar than we think. It may take more time to actualize. Perhaps it will take us a while to settle into our new life. But there is no more time to re-hash that paper that wasn’t perfect or examine the failures along the way. Because it is official. We are graduating, ready or not.

We are finished. Done. Completed. And it’s not possible to go back. We are done hooking back into negativity and all the stories of pain. We are through doubting ourselves with fear. Because we have had enough, and we don’t need this paradigm any more. We are the class of 2015, and we are ready for the fifth dimension.
