Nearly 5000 come to biggest Animal Rights march in Ireland and then the Blood Moon for further transformations!
Well I've woken up from my panoramic blood moon love in at Harmony Hall in warrior mode, like your one from Terminator 2! Sunflower, flax, pumpkin, hemp, lecithin, spirilina, vegan vit D oil, acidophilus and even a tiny bit of Herb Robert on my cereals. Now I'm going for 50 lengths and there's no telling what might be achieved later in the day! The intentions I set - because the moon likes specifics! - were
1) World peace. 2) People helped home or into new homes with water and food (before we release our dependence on food! Starting on the 2nd October, I'm Fasting Against Slaughter with thousands of others. Its quite a laugh and comraderie actually sharing the various highs and lows of withdrawals from breakfast, lunch and tea! And, of course, spreads a strong message that we don't need to kill everything that moves to survive!) 3) Compassionate people into power 4) Justice 5) Love 6) To bring real joy back to the world (because one's accompanying feelings are also important to the moon. You can't just be cross and vigilante about things, you've got to muster up the vision you want and feel delighted about it. 7) Live the dream. So I'll report back if any of them come together. I couldn't capture the eclipse in a photo so I'm just sharing the day time scene, so perfect to watch it the whole way around! Thanks Michael Rice for the Sacred Geometry space...it delivers daily restored posiivity!

Make Cruelty to Animals History - PAWS Charity Ball tonight & ARAN World Vegetarian Day tomorrow 27th September 2015
After the referendum for gay marriage I heard a conversation spring up on 4fm about the idea of a Referendum for Animals. Everyone talking believed that a surprising number would vote for animal rights. Some might be shamed into it by not wanting to vote for ignoring continued grandscale suffering but more already are conscious eaters, shoppers and carers who would definitely want the exploitation to stop. First thing we can do is come to the PAWS Charity Ball on tonight in Kilkenny and secondly join John Carmody of ARAN for the wonderful campaign walk on Sunday in Dubin - to Make Cruelty To Animals History - starting at the Garden of Remembrance at 2pm. And, would you like my Animal Referendum For Ireland Page too? It is to be managed and guided by my two very motivated pigs, Rebecca and Legend. If we get enough likes, we will take that as a 'yes' vote in the making and start to put together a bill to put before government! Why not! Elections are coming up, lets see exactly what each politician cares about. https://www.facebook.com/Animal-Referendum-for-Irela…/…/Once I

The interesting and brilliant thing about an attentive life is that it keeps getting better. I have been opening a page of my feng shui book every morning for inspiration and every evening to see what I’ve achieved! Yesterday morning, I came across an introductory sentence that just said, how do you feel in each room in your home? I realized that although I maintain a positive outlook and clear any steam let off by visiting energies, I didn’t feel particularly restored or relaxed in any room. Instead of being annoyed that there may be a vortex or two in Harmony Hall that had remained undetected all this time, I just asked, can I find out what’s up and embroider even, rather than just darn, the holes in the energy field here? I got a definite yes. Its brilliant to have the tools to help yourself, as you notice drains on your resources. I found that there were nine things up for me at Harmony Hall.
1. Problem in the Gaia energy field
2. A partnership with nature that had been short circuiting in places.
3. Magnetic field, I had an electric magnetic charge test done but the latter could not be gauged.
4. The triangulation of difficult energies, amplifying them: Internet, stream, ESB
5. Famine – I had found drains and walls that had been built by desperate people on the move, during the famine.
6. Ancestral – both local and my own
The last three were horrible energies holding the others in power. The identification and clearing didn’t take long, I made time for it, as I drove along on three short journeys. That is another beauty of awareness and integration. It can happen as you go along! Let me know if you want support finding out where you yourself are losing energy and we can sort it out in no time. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or find Harmony Hall BioArchitecture Retreat on Facebook and I will respond at once.

Recognize what is going on and
Recognize what is not working for you personally.
She says that the powers that be have no good in mind for us. We are laboring under a misapprehension. It will take some time to come to terms with the reality that every system in place, food and medicine included, have a different priority, which is profit. Using the example of the supermarket, where there is a tiny shelving section labelled 'health food', she asks what does that say about the rest of the food in the place? Even if we grant that initially the intention of supermarkets might have been motivated by good objectives; to provide food that will last a long time and be cheap and available. This does not detract from the fact that most food products are now toxic. There include preservatives, taste enhancers, vegetables that have been sprayed and sprayed and sprayed, with pesticides and herbicides. Animals have been fed continual antibiotics to fight off sicknesses, from being raised in closed quarters. Briefly looking at the water system, she mentions how flagrantly our fresh water reserves are contaminated with fracking and other industry. The fluoridation of drinking water has been passed off as strengthening to our teeth but actually fluoride causes calcification of the pineal gland, leading to total suppression of our faculties and accompanying fear. It was the same with the advent of the energy saving light bulbs that everyone was encouraged to get. They are full of dangerous chemicals and even when they are working, they release low frequency energy waves. Get rid of them, Freya recommends, safely and at once. The connection to motor neuron degeneration, cancers, depression and anxiety are all well documented.
I asked Freya then, why do governments do the exact opposite of what the public want? I pointed to the millions demonstrating in London and beyond how definitely people didn't want the war in Iraq or Shell to drill in the Arctic, Mayo or Nigeria for that matter. The Chinese are still cutting down Rainforest, 2 areas the size of Portugal in recent weeks. Every country has done its share of damage and made its choices but why, even when people are aware and united for the good. She explained how governments have a different agenda, as the political arm of multi-national corporations and must do the will of those companies. So there is massive profit in war, in terms of weapons, so that is allowed. There is no profit in displaced people, so refugees are refused entry. Governments do not have the will or the power probably to resist.
So which is it, I asked, do they want us alive as consumers and slaves in their production industries OR are they trying to kill us off? She said that there is all three going on. There is a deliberate de-population, a deliberate de-humanization and a deliberate de-stabilization of people, countries and climate. We discussed how even on our birth certificates, there is reference to our individual potential Net Value of our taxation, during our lifetime and the Net Value of our existence as a consumer. We are all registered on the stock market as products of our countries! Things have got worse, however, as technology is so advanced now that people are no longer needed. In areas like science, where people are still used, the scientists are given such a myopic goal to accomplish and have such a narrow grasp of the bigger picture, that however brilliant they may be, they are more of a liability to humanity than an asset.
How do we re-empower ourselves was my next question, seeing as being upset, vegan, an environmentalist, or other ways of trying harder for change, weren't working for people? Freya outlined how we need to turn away from the financial system of lifetime slavery to meaningless work, the education system that teaches us to deny our compassion and the food system which relies on our ignorance and addictions. We have to combat the ultimate suppression of our humanity by going out and helping someone, by learning something new like how to grow your own food and learning tools so that we can participate powerfully. To explain further the idea of tools, Freya used the example of a pen that can either be used to write a love poem or to kill someone. Energetic tools can, as well, equip us to use technology as an amplification of what we want to say. This is taking back our power from being a mere recipient of what we see on television or read on the internet. Decide what you consider important and are passionate about and transmit that.
Do not trust that credible information is given by institutions, however well meaning, don't let it guide your opinions. We can use these energetic, humane, compassionate and clarified faculties, as well, to establish what information has shown up to guide you and what information has appeared to sell you something you don't want! Its about discernment. So far, true meaning has been replaced with meaningless stuff and people have also been denied the time, space and opportunity to care for each other or themselves. The main thread and guidance is to free oneself from current limited understanding and develop a compassionate and creative independence. Your own philosophy and way of life will then attract others, its already happening world over and a new reality will be born. But old structures and institutions must fall and that can only happen if we withdraw our dependence on them.
Stop looking for a CURE for what we are doing to ourselves. Prevention is so much more obvious and remains in our own hands. In simple terms, don't give away your humanity and self esteem, stop buying the toxic food and junk to fill the void that's left.
If you want to download the brilliant and free guidebook to these exact tools for clearing away conflict on the inside and outside, find www.thepeaceintention.org and/or book a session via skype with Freya Lawton or myself, Frances Micklem, at www.healingbyfranc.com

A Client's Story - You Are The Change
A past client describes a new understanding of three decades beset by grief, self-destructive tendencies and medication. She describes how she knew she needed energy work rather than feeling merely that it could not do any harm. Also that it took her several years to actually make the first booking, as it marked a shift from attempting to get out of it (life/consciousness/blame) to getting into it (life/consciousness/forgiveness). She attributes the resulting confidence and tools to clear her own energy as the necessary foundation she needed to get herself through the withdrawal from the maximum strength anti-depressants that she was on. She says that friends have stopped, amazed, mid conversation and said that talking to her is like talking to a completely different person than before, she is so well-adjusted and has such a great perspective. She has pointed them all to my guide book “How To Live As One” and talks here again about how the book can also be used to understand and grow, like she has. In this both candid and compassionate conversation, we show the new lease of life possible through studying oneself and reality through the energetic model, taught at Harmony Hall.
Harmony Hall Training in Word and Thought
I challenge the consensus that people are just ignorant and destructive arrivals on the planet and start with the reminder that we have been incarnated at this precise moment, to stand at the end of a 225,000 year cycle. We can afford to assume that we are well-equipped for this lifetime and what this point in evolution asks of us. For those new to energy work or already some way along, I discuss the process of becoming aware of the vocabulary you use. We are told not to be negative as that will lead to a negative creation in 3D. I point out how gaining perspective and awareness of the words you use and the thoughts you entertain can bring another layer of negativity in the form of self criticism. The energy training shared in this podcast is to release the emotional charge that holds old vocabulary in place and practice using more conscious language. Looking at each word in turn, it emerges that there are negative associations and dynamics attached to the very words that could empower us. For example we hear ‘generosity’ as the likelihood of being taken advantage of. We hear ‘power’ as power in the wrong hands. We hear ‘truth’ as some sort of unforgiving home-truths session. We hear ‘trust’ as naivety and we hear ‘peace’ as something unrealistic. These misunderstandings are cleared up and daily practices are offered. There is a window of insight as to the mirror of support that is offered in one-to-ones at Harmony Hall. Music is bywww.lucindadrayton.com and www.jpryanmusic.com. Further studies are available via Vimala Rodgers onhttp://www.iihs.com/vimala-rodgers.html She writes:
“Everyone feels some way about their handwriting. My focus is to guide you in adopting
writing changes that draw out the positive, uplifting, and unexpressed gifts that live
within you, and support you in designing a life you love.”
Then, of course, there is my book "How To Live As One" which can be found on Amazon or from my website.
In this episode I deeply explore the health merits of gratitude as a mental attitude, a practice, an important part of the energy spectrum and a good feeling. I first describe the obstacles to recognizing that gratitude is for you; the waiting for things to be right in your life and the addiction to suffering that is so prevalent. I interchange the idea of gratitude with the idea of warm acknowledgement, in order to give people a sense of ‘doing’ something when they are developing a sense of gratitude. Using the example of the knee joint, I explain the many assumptions and demands we put on our bodies without offering any particular regard for the wonderful functions and freedoms we have been given by having a physical body to play with in the first place. To avoid the problem of having to be thankful for, apparently, not much (the excessive humility that can keep spiritually evolved people in a low impact position), I explain the link between gratitude and power. One’s personal power is increased by being able to bring oneself into a glad and appreciative state, at will. A vibration of upset, pity or even acceptance does not have the same frequency as gratitude. The latter, emanating from you as thought, word or deed improves the health of every cell and the vitality of everything you apply yourself to. I describe the way that the energy healing and teaching at Harmony Hall enhance one’s ability to experience gratitude and send a remote healing to everyone who listens in. The energetic knowledge, skills and attitude that I teach also offer a gauge of success. You will be able to tell when you eventually muster up the genuine article of gratitude. Lucinda Drayton’s song ‘Thank You’ is there (Many albums and meditations to be found on www.lucindadrayton.com) and JP Ryan’s song ‘The Great Devotion’ is played at the end (Two great albums can be found at www.jpryanmusic.com). This upbeat classic, with words that resonate in every heart, I thought would be good to help people remember what music they are glad of in their lives, as a good start.
How all life is connected
In this show I introduce and cultivate the idea of oneness, what role it may give humanity in the universe and what individual life purpose it can reveal. I start to look at concepts of quantum physics that might have supported the arguments that 1) at the smallest level all things are made up of the same matter, including all animate and inanimate objects. The implication of this is that all things are connected, have value and an element of consciousness: People, animals, plants and everything else. 2) That there is a biology of belief (Bruce Lipton's research), that demonstrates how our observation of, thoughts and feelings about and inherited beliefs all impact on reality (on what actually happens), in a measurable way. On the spur of the moment, that was difficult to articulate so I described oneness in the light of healing, as that is how it is utilized at Harmony Hall. I describe how the drama, polarity and sense of differentiation are all superficial and that beneath these illusory divisions there is an oceanic energy field from which we actually emanate. Energy clearing, in this context, is used to notice and clear the illusions of separation as they arise. It is used to bring people back to peace by ducking beneath the surface conflicts and feeling the magnitude of our existence. I also recommend playing with the recognition of oneness. Using the examples of musical performance, agility and joy, I suggest that you call on the energy of those, living or dead, mythical or historical that can help you. For me it was Beethoven to perform his Sonata, the Snow Leopard to dance at the congress and the Hedgehog to remind me to enjoy life whatever is showing up. I describe how the tools and teaching of energy work at Harmony Hall allow growth from a limited sense of self to an ever-expanding realization of one’s origins and potential.
Raising Social Awareness and Empathy
The first step to healing is to care about something (anything at all will do) and the second step is to come to care enough about yourself to honour your awakened heart and mind by making changes to your life. This show describes two current events and seeks to understand what went wrong with these valiant attempts to 1) facilitate a compassionate lifestyle – the sale of Alpro, the leading vegan products company, to a Dairy giant in America and 2) to engender empathy and win sanctuary – a High Court Case for a chimpanzee already used by a research facility for 23 years. To develop an independent mind that can alight on situations with compassion and without emotional charge is one of the great gifts of the teaching that Harmony Hall provides. Over time, as fear of going against the grain falls away, one can also develop the confidence and commitment to let what you learn change you. It may be that you come to change your buying habits and your friends and decide to live harmlessly, via a vegan lifestyle, as I do. I also offer our vegan retreat here to support the changes you make, release any anger that can arise and love the new authentic you. My choice to follow the news story of the Animal Rights court case was deliberate as it is an area that is least questioned. When you are sick, people will often take whatever medicines are prescribed. As your awareness of money outweighing ethics and cruel means of production grows, there is no need to go into denial again. There are great research centres that do not test on animals, like the Hadwen Trust in Oxford. Indeed as you understand your own energetic make-up, you can heal yourself better than any outside source.
