Lunar Eclipse April 4, 2015   Leave a comment

lunar-eclipse-platonic-solidsHow this cosmic event affects you

“This is not the beginning of the end, but the end of the beginning” ~Winston Churchill

As we approach the lunar eclipse this Saturday here is an overview of the themes and significance of this special cosmic event from Margaret Grey of “Cosmic Intelligence Agency”

This Lunar Eclipse marks the final ending of the planetary ‘marathon’ which started in June 2012 for all of us both individually and globally. Although the last exact Uranus Pluto square was on March 17th 2015, the fact that this Eclipse lands within 1’ of that point, marks the crossing of the finishing line for us all.

As with any Marathon, crossing the finishing line marks the end of a phase and the start of a new one. The new phase carries with it echoes of the process we went through during the Marathon. This may include sore muscles, tendons, dehydration, tiredness etc. Similarly, the next few years are going to entail recuperation, as well as an integration of the changes we made over the past 3 years. But right now our focus is on the Lunar Eclipse itself.

What is a Lunar Eclipse:

A Lunar Eclipse can only occur during a Full Moon. During a Full Moon, the Solar light of consciousness illuminates emotions that surface from deep within our unconscious. However, during a Lunar Eclipse, Earth stands in the way of this illumination. Hence, we are momentarily left immersed in total darkness, in our newly surfaced emotions. Although this is only temporary, it can help to have some tools at hand to manage and contain the emotions that come to the surface, until the Moon moves out of the shadow of the Earth. In doing so, the Sun can shine once more onto our emotions enabling them to be consciously integrated.

Some interesting things about this lunar eclipse:

This is the 3rd of 5 Lunar Eclipses on the Libra/Aries axis. The first two were in Oct 18 2013 and Oct 8 2014 The last two will be in Sept 28 2015 and March 23rd The underlying core theme of Eclipses on this Axis is the integration and balance of ‘self’ and ‘other’. How can we be fair and just with others whilst respecting who we are? As they are Cardinal signs, the emphasis is on leadership and action. However, it is interesting to note that within this Aries/Libra series, this Lunar Eclipse and the one in March 2016 are the only two that are in Libra. The others are all in Aries with the opposing Sun in Libra. This emphasizes the theme of balance and fairness with others versus self-focus. This is further enhanced by the conjunction with the North Node at 10’ Libra, as well as the sextile from Jupiter in Leo. Hence we are invited to be the peaceful civilized mediator rather than the uncouth warrior.

Wings Alive and Memra Yekara in Calgary this Spring!   1 comment

Wings-Alive-2015-PL-Blog-PhotoDiscover your life’s purpose April 28 —May 1, 2015

We are very fortunate to host our friend Memra Yekara, formerly known as Audrey Cole, for two special events in 2015.

Memra is a unique channeller/medium who had her abilities almost fully developed at birth. She started channeling over 30 years ago, and since then Memra has worked periodically with the police and private detectives; participated as a medium in exorcisms’—although Hollywood does a much better job, says Memra—overcame cancer; became a reiki master teacher and is an ordained minister.

In 1997, Memra began channeling archangel Haniel. This angel is very entertaining, with the quick wit of a stand-up comedian mixed with information that will take your mind into multi-dimensions; a truly remarkable and life-altering experience.

Additional information about Memra and her company “Wings Alive” can be found here.

Compassion Grows out of Vulnerability   Leave a comment

When you allow yourself to be vulnerable you receive the gift of compassion. Compassion for others arises when we recognize their vulnerability as a memory within ourselves.

The Speech I Wish I’d Heard When I Was 21   Leave a comment

Do you remember your commencement speech? When I graduated from university our speaker was Dick Pound. While I mean no disrespect to this man, the speech was not awesome nor was it memorable. This one however is. “This is Water” by David Foster Wallace starts off with a story: two young fish are swimming by an older fish who nods at them and says “Good morning boys. How’s the water?” The two young fish swim on for a bit until one on them looks at the other and says, “What the hell is water?” It is a cute parable about how the most obvious and important realities are often the hardest to see and the most difficult to talk about. Well, here is someone talking about it…and it’s awesome!

Our Adventures Through China   2 comments

The Amazing Pyramids of China-Kandis Twa

As some of you know we were greatly honoured and excited to visit some of China’s most wonderful and- I daresay-unknown treasures. Their pyramids!

We say pyramid, the Chinese people say mausoleum, whatever word you feel more comfortable with these structures are incredible! Some of them are well known and visited by many many people. One such structure is called the mausoleum of the Emperor Qin. The burial pits around this pyramid contain the world famous “Terracotta warriors”, many visit the museum to see these beautiful statues but fail to take the short bus ride up to the pyramid.

Visiting China to do research on our upcoming books, we set out to find the almost unknown pyramids. Tucked away in remote corners of the countryside these beautiful pyramids are respected and revered  by the people who live close to them as monuments to their ancestors. They stand in the middle of fields and sometimes smack in the middle of a village, preserved and protected by a culture that I believe invented honour. Despite the fact that most of these pyramids contain many precious artifacts they are not looted or destroyed. We meet one woman at a site that had been excavated, its contents destined for a museum that was under construction, who had kept watch over this one pyramids for twenty five years of her life! Although we couldn’t speak to her directly (my mandarin is not so good) I could sense the deep sense of pride she held for her duty.

Needless to say the energy of these places is profound and incredibly beautiful. There are many which are dedicated tourist spots, regularly visited by Chinese people wishing to pay respect to their ancestors  however rarely visited by us Western folk (which means the food is awesome!). If you are considering a trip to China (to Xian specifically), please think about putting some of these sites on your itinerary.

Here are some photos of the rural pyramids we discovered.

Around the world in…36ish days!   2 comments

We are home!!!

For those of you who have been wondering what has happened to us, I can tell you it’s been quite the adventure for the whole Pure Leadership team! We have been off travelling to and visiting some of the most wonderful and ancient sacred sites in the world. We’ve had our passports stamped in Egypt and China this spring and have just now returned home. Thank you a million times to all the wonderful people that we have met and who assisted us on this fantastic journey!

The purpose of the trip was to gather and to confirm information for Jim’s upcoming book “Cosmic You”. I will let him tell you all about it, but I can give you a bit of a sneak preview.  There is much more to the sacred sites of Egypt, China, Peru and Mexico that you ever may have known!

We were privileged to have travelled in Egypt with authors Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock, both of whom have been pioneers in bringing forth information about the significance and value of the sacred structures in Egypt. If you are not familiar with their work I highly recommend a quick look at their websites to whet your appetite about the mystic and allure of Egypt.

In the coming days…and weeks really, we will post more about our adventures. Photos, thoughts, missives, what we learned and share some of the experiences we had along the way.

Doh a Deer!

The opus to the solfeggio scale sung by Julie Andrews got special treatment in the train station in Antwerp.  We’ve  reproduced the video on the Pure News Network website ( Good Deeds>News) because watching the reaction of the onlookers always gives the PNN news staff a chuckle and we hope it will do the same for you!  We’ll be following up with a Christmas Flash Mob of the Hallelujah Chorus in a food court too.  To see the Antwerp video, go to the Pure News Network article and click to view.  Watch the crowd.  Maybe you’ll get up and start to dance yourself!
