Autumn, Fall, Ruska - a golden time for shedding what is burnt out and returning to your core restoration

It may seem that I wish to change people's minds about reality. This is especially when I say that we are not individuals, we are all connected and reflected energy. Also when I say that being vegan is better for you and everyone than continuing to eat your own choice of foods. These are just conclusions that I have reached. These are just changes that I have made, as I have learnt how to change my own mind. This great gift includes being able to observe  and release attachments to my old ideas and conditioning. It no longer amounts to a true story that I have to keep to for the rest of my life. I can change my mind when more congruent information becomes available to me. I have been careful to check my identification with my thoughts. Just because I feel anxious, does not mean the anxiety is mine. Even if it is, I am not rendered a disempowered anxious person. I remain an eternal being who happens to be experiencing anxiety. As I read recently, detachment is not about not owning anything, it is the experience that nothing owns you. This is the gift I really want to give other people too. The great gift of renewed space within our own minds, so that we can grow, change if we want to, integrate or let go of parts of our lives that aren't in alignment with our passions, peace and purpose.

To this end, I would like people to think of Harmony Hall as a self-sufficiency training centre. First and most importantly, it offers visitors mental independence. Imagine that! Future decisions no longer governed by fear, old patterns or external pressure. Course work involves stopping your own identification with your emotions, past, job or all of the above. Then Part 2 is self-sufficiency in your Environment. Where does all your stuff come from? Furniture, clothes, food, electricity, water? Who is looking after it? Learning how you can look after micro and macro situations from the safe centre of yourself will be next. In Part 3, there is visioning work. Given that what was limiting you is now released, we can ask and get a clear answer as to what your soul actually wants to do. Let the synchronicities, inspiration and soulful energy take the wheel again.

On the Healing From Harmony show every saturday, there is an opportunity to acknowledge several pieces of the jigsaw. If you want to commit to this growth, then feel free to Skype me for a personal or home energy clearing. If you're really inspired, make a plan to come to Harmony Hall in Kilkenny, Ireland. There are 2, 4 and 9 hour courses available.
The two hour intro, includes a substantial clearing by yours truly plus the basics of divining and developing a daily practice. (€80)
The four-hour can be two hours one afternoon and two hours the next, for an individual or couple
(€160 includes accommodation)
Or  a four-hour can be a half day course for a group, including a copy of my book, How To Live As One (€65)
The nine-hour is either for individuals, staying a friday to sunday, or for a group, who meet here three evenings over three weeks.

Other autumn missions are also under way here; I have draft-proofed the windows, cut and stacked the fire wood, cleaned the chimney and the winter paddock is fenced for the trusty steeds. This means that people might also survive a visit here in midwinter, if that's the time you have to play with!

How's That Environmental Protection Agency working out for you?

Here's the complaint I had to send in citing section 63 and specifically my copy to Ann Phelan TD (Minister of State at the Departments of Agriculture, Food and Marine and Transport, Tourism and Sport) who maybe does not even realize herself how much information is being overlooked!

Dear Ann, I saw baby salmon in the river yesterday and was worried that maybe you didn't know how the EPA is working, in regard to the CAS. They are not doing any monitoring, they are passing on concerns to the council's own Environmental Department. Essentially saying the council can monitor itself. The EPA promised they would get involved if a formal complaint was made, citing section 63. So this is a copy of mine so you see the whole process.
"I rang the EPA and I was told that Kilkenny County Council should have 'the chance to do their own investigations'. The independent EPA will only get involved if there is a formal complaint. I think that a person taking Kilkenny Council to the High Court on a matter of Environmental concern is enough to be considered a formal complaint. Furthermore, it is not appropriate to ask the Council to investigate their own project. That much of a vested interest, in the outcome, makes a mockery of their assessments. I asked, yesterday, Friday 26th September, that the EPA collect at least a sample from the river when the contractors were digging out their stone. I said they need not pursue an investigation or analyze it even, unless it was asked for by the Court later this month. Dermot Burke refused and again said that the council should have 'a chance' to do their own investigation. This is a serious decision to overlook an environmental disaster and take no responsibility for monitoring it, even in the face of more than 200 people spending shifts on Greens Bridge, night and day, to highlight their concern.
(The person in the photo when the guards eventually escorted the dreaded pile driver in was the head cardiologist of St Luke's and another working man from towards Urlingford. Many teachers and respected people from all walks of life and even ministers are concerned, let alone the senior ecologist who has stated the desperate damage associated with the CAS work.)
It begs the question, how much are you (the EPA) being paid to stay out of it and let the whole thing go unaddressed or maybe there is no direct benefit just pressure? I would also like to say that I appreciated the EPA's Mr Burke's time on the phone clarifying this closed shop of procedure. We collected samples yesterday anyway & saw breathless baby salmon. If you (the EPA) want to be seen as independent when the case is heard, perhaps you would be kind enough to analyze the samples. If not, it will be duly noted by the court and added to the list of unashamed coercion."
I am sure you yourself are concerned, in your position in charge of Marine life etc. I know its a big topic but you must agree that a project only benefiting a few should not override care of the Environment or democracy. Please note that the Save Kilkenny page has now received 1000 likes and the petition was signed by over 9,000 people. Thanks a lot in advance for your support in sorting out this democratic process, I remember you are actively against the pylons and energy plan and I hope that means you have the same clarity about the plan for the Kilkenny Centre and its effect on the River Nore, which also provides the city's drinking water. Thanks again, Frances

Live and let live! Healing by Franc is doing the Stop The Slaughter Fast on 2nd October!

I'm doing this fast on the 2nd October, if anyone would like to sponsor me? Think I should make it a fundraiser at the same time! I have set a bit of a target to stop the slaughter of farm animals. The government are helping by penalizing farmers every step of the way with tests and fines and devaluing animals. Yes, on top of the killing, secret brutality and terror which doesn't really value them you've got to admit, the Department of Agriculture are technically devaluing them too, by standing by while the farmers receive 40% less per cow at the factory, than they did last year. While we have such disillusionment on our side, I'm going to be sussing out the grants and tax breaks for crops and natural farming methods (non spraying) and see if we can turn some farmers to growing something sustainable. Ireland spends 850 million euro on importing feed for their cows each winter. It just doesn't add up to a good industry on any level, economy or, ethical. You know how much I like my avocados, Bute Island vegan smoked cheese, Plamil egg free mayonnaise and home grown tomato sandwiches on the hour, every hour?! Well, on that day, I will be going on hunger strike. A protest fast like Gandhi did more than twenty times in his lifetime.
I was also looking up pigs. They have an energy and heart too. A heart so similar to a human heart actually that transplants are regularly considered. A 75kg pig has the same heart rate and capacity as a 75kg person. They also have the same membrane around their hearts as we do. Some sick loonies have bred human genes in to pigs and bred out some pig genes, to lower the rejection likelihood of a donated heart. Lets have a think about donations… do we usually say we've 'donated' something when our throat is cut to take it off us? Not on the whole I would say. You cannot be passionate about life and take another's.
Each animal has a symbolic meaning. The pig, brilliantly, can lend us the power to respect each other and be mentally independent. They have the very energy we need to facilitate a quick turn around by farmers and consumers too. Who knows how it can happen. But it can happen. Living harmlessly is the way forward. I also looked up the meaning of Mink. This was having heard that 45,000 Mink are killed in the local Portlaoise Fur Farm every year. It read that Mink energy gives us the power of silent observation. The first observation I was read was chillingly true:
"Deep, old magic of the dark
Warrior balance of the light,
Teach that evil lies within,
Never in the day or night"

How to deal with interference from HAARP, nano technology and other deliberate contaminations.

There are organizations who would like to see the individual rooted to the spot in terror or 6 feet under ( – preferably through suicide – so that no blame can be pinned on them) or addicted to a small life of persecution, poverty and illness.
One such organization is HAARP. They use electro magnetic waves to transmit the darkest of human emotions direct to their target groups, to use mass demoralization as a weapon. They also mess about with the weather, taking risks with temperature peaks and troughs at an atmospheric level that would send a chill down anyone’s spine. This is truly powerful technology being used destructively. Similarly, the nano technology is being spread around in crop sprays. These microscopic robots gather data but also have long been programmed to reach the seat of the emotions in the human brain. This provides a means for remote viewing and remote control, combined. So! If you’re feeling a bit down and wondering what came over you? That was probably someone turning down the dial away from enthusiasm, consciousness, acceptance and joy 
And setting you up for a bleak moment and eventually total overwhelm.

People with a developed awareness and empathy are particularly susceptible to this sort of interference. If I give you the example of an organic farmer: He is a threat to Monsanto by raising awareness of non organic methods, just by his choices. He has chosen not to use pesticides. In his efforts to justify his more expensive produce, he explains that extra labour of love it involves, to avoid sprays, for weeds and pests. He notices things like Genetically Modified food creeping on to the market. He notices that the chem–trailing planes are flying and spraying even over his land and even over non-agricultural land! He asks questions and everybody who already knows and trusts him listens to the answers too. Maybe this aspect of listening is the most important of all. The  organic farmer is training himself to listen to the land again, listen to the forecasts of weather and coming seasons and listen to his own attitudes. For one it might be that nature is kind to those who mind her and everything grows just as well without chemically. Some feel they are fighting the good fight against the odds. These are the people I hope to help today.

You can literally fill in the blank
“I feel strongly that what is happening to ………… is wrong, tragic and deplorable.”
I know many people who care deeply about animals and are rendered in a permanent state of devastation, the more information filters down to them. Much of that information is being fed deliberately to us, via the internet, TV and the News.

Then someone like me says you have to let it go! Not only do you think you can’t let it go, you also feel strongly that you should hold on to it. If you stop caring, all hell will let loose and all sorts of atrocities will get past you, because you’ve taken your eye off the ball. The facts remain that you are no good to anyone if your minds are full to bursting with everyone’s suffering. I am going to tell you the mechanism for letting go and a few things that will need to go. Be systematic about it and I guarantee that once you’ve navigated your own way out of the quagmire, you will realize where your true power comes from and still have the will to wield that power for the good.

You need to let go of the emotion about the thing. In the bigger picture there is an unfolding and so you can also take this opportunity to find out what your worst nightmares are. Lets get them out of the way before you create them in reality! You can either keep creating your unconscious fears, inexhorably repeating scenarios…. Or! You can get conscious, get an objective perspective and then you are in a position to hold a space for resolution within yourself and to ripple out to the situation you want to address.

So, without further ado, say to yourself  ‘It doesn’t matter if all humanity goes to hell in a handbasket (I love that expression of Freya Lawton’s  from www.thepeace Or you can say ‘It doesn’t matter if ……’ and fill in the blank. For example, if you have dedicated your whole adult life to saving animals, it will be difficult to say they don’t matter but trust yourself enough to know that you will still care. It’s the ‘mattering’ not the animals that you’re intending to let go of. The outcome will be that you can stop searching for resolution in an overcrowded mind of suffering, cruelty, vivisection, factories and ignorance. With your heart and equilibrium restored, you are in a much better position to hold a space for animals, to take meaningful actions to help and allow clarity and creativity to really come up with a positive intervention.  Deepak Chopra says that merely allowing a gap between your thoughts is sufficient to allow in the ‘infinite organizing power of Nature’. We don’t need to sort it all out but we do need to contact someone who can! This takes place by reconnecting with our inner selves, others, Nature, our divine aspects.

But before we can really get on with tackling our own stuff we need to get HAARP and nano infiltrations off your case.

To do this, pick up a pendulum. It is not really healing using divining. It is using it as a gauge to see when each section is completely cleared. Swing it clockwise to get things going (on Home Page there is a video introduction to using the pendulum to start from the very beginnng).
Swing it and ask that all HAARP and nano  are cleared from your body. When it stops, swing it again and ask that any negative effects, from having carried that stuff around thinking it was yours for so long, be cleared. Then swing it and ask to clear your etheric energy field; your environment, to all intents and purposes.
Swing it and ask to clear anything else working against you, again the adverse effects and again your etheric. Do this often. It is not that it is done once and you’re free. Once you’re on top of the external influences on your well-being, then it is time to go deeper inside and see what else you have in store. This is both good and bad but never indifferent; you are learning navigation via compassionate acknowledgement, at its highest level. Once you crack it, you’ll be unstoppable.

If you want a blast of concentrated support to launch this mission, let me know!

Phil Hogan is scary enough without giving him the title of Commissioner for Agriculture

Dear Nessa Childers MEP,

Phil Hogan: A liability as Environment Minister and a liability as Commissioner for Agriculture

Please do not confirm Phil Hogan's appointment as Agricultural Commissioner. He is loathed and distrusted by the Irish people. He has a proven track record of total disregard for public interest and total commitment to Corporate Interest, which he looks set to perpetuate in the new role, with only a quick glance at who his colleagues might be. Here he was the Environment Minister and has tried to turn Ireland into a power station, with pylons, substations, wind farms, fracking and oil enquires everywhere. Here he is in Kilkenny, his likeness repeated many times over a whole crowd. He represents all the corruption, lack of transparency and integrity and ignorance of what matters.
Then there is the Harvest 20/20 plan. This is sick. It is an agricultural version of the power station plan. It offers Ireland up to produce 50% more meat and 50% more dairy by the year 2020. Anyone with 20/20 vision, or even partially sighted, can see that Ireland is not equipped to feed the world or whatever the hair-brained plan is. Already we buy in 850million euro worth of grain each year to feed the animals we have. Farming is not even sustainable as it is. What is being suggested is a intensification of farming in Ireland. That means more cruelty, less care, more importation of non-organic grain to feed the animals. Phil Hogan has said that he just doesn't want GM directly in human food. Well, that is not going far enough as this intensification is a guaranteed way to necessitate more chemical sprays, GM and other environmentally destructive practices being used. And don't start me on the carbon emissions from increased animal farming. Phil Hogan has said, even the agricultural sector has to be carbon neutral. This is not going far enough because it is an impossible combination. Ask for more delivery and less emissions, just a taxable ignoramus of an idea, like the increased power supply…which isn't taxable but they are just planning to add the costs to our electricity bills. We need an Agricultural Commissioner who is competent, compassionate and able to make coherent decisions. The sooner we stop killing animals for food and start using our green and pleasant land for crops, then everyone can be fed. The statistics show that keeping animals uses an incredible amount of water and land. For the same acreage, lots of arable, fruit, grain and vegetables could be properly, organically produced. This is what is needed. The farmers are already getting 40% less for each cow than they did last year. The government has just this year started charging for water. The abuse of the individual is exemplary here. So I think even the farmers are ready to get out of their corner of raising costs, tests, dropping values and try something different.  Employ an environmentalist and give them the power to make the changes Europe needs to make.

Lets stay focused on peace ... but make sure that all parties are really truly keeping the cease fire as we go along!

It seems a bit unfair to me that FInland has given over 2 billion to third world countries, over 1 billion to join Europe and now finds itself 4 billion in debt, themselves. Its easy for us and central Europe to say, Right! no trade with Russia as of now but for the Fins, they are their immediate neighbors. Half their business is not allowed to happen, at the stroke of a pen, by someone whom it does not affect at all! Its like boycotting England at the drop of a hat…very difficult to do - whether we're thinking food, motor or any other industry. Also all their energy comes from Russia and they basically share an air space, so lets spare a thought for those directly affected by the grim developments, military operations and New World Order being played out around the world. Lets make sure that all of Europe is looked after. Ireland has been on the periphery before and it wasn't a nice feeling. At this precise moment, though, I think Ireland is a very blessed distance from strife - except for the one family made homeless every day, poverty, political unrest, environmental ignorance and long-standing, underlying cruelty between people and species. It really is a walk in the park in comparison to what some nations are going through.
I have always called my blog 'Peace, the final frontier' but at the moment, I think its important to have quite an active awareness of what is happening, rather than a totally Zen perspective. A great example, again, is my own beloved city Kilkenny. On the one hand, we won the great Tidy Towns nation-wide competition this week. On the other, the council (and the contractors doing their dirty work) are behaving like teenage boys who've been grounded. Straight out the window, defying authority, not accepting any responsibility. Lying in court about expenses. They were ordered by the high court to stop work on the motorway bridge over the river Nore, last week, and every single day there's been someone into the site anyway, some lorry in, edging the project forwards regardless. So contrary are they, that the very day of the injunction, they continued to trundle their machinery around in the river until half past 7 at night! The dark side, which includes greed and the use and abuse of people, is obstinate. It is always still seeing what it can get away with. That is why we have to monitor, record and stay vigilant. So don't give in to fear, war, despondency, random laws, guarda threats and imposed taxes, pylons and food sprayed with chemicals way beyond your worst nightmares. This is our chance to take the power back!

Casting off the ball and chain of oppression

In my morning reflection, I asked the question, how far back do problems go. We tend to think of situations being created in our lifetimes, by our set of circumstances and experiences. However I got as far as 700 years earlier.

A hundred years of family problems, unexpressed feelings, unmentioned abuse.
A hundred years of superiority, inferiority as men and women, rich and poor.
A hundred years of dirt and hardship. No facilities, light, water, food not yet freely available.
A hundred years of domination. Of other people abroad, animals, land and Nature
A hundred years of pain and endurance. Bad teeth no dentists, no hygiene. Illness and injury, no relief
A hundred years of vulnerability. Short, low impact life spans. Dependence on land and weather.

Cleared all that, for all of us, and realized that that is what has been stopping this generation's empowerment. We can do anything we like, but we had still been feeling like victims. There has been disillusionment, bullying, inertia and despondency. But that is the weight of our collective past. Or rather, that WAS the weight of our collective past! I cleared it!

Now it is dispersed, we can each bring our potential to realization. For me, it will be my musical performance to total resonance, dance to the height of synergy, healing to a new level and clarity to everyone lost in, or disarmed by, confusion. This sense of purpose crystallized yesterday as I started Horticulture Level 5. This comes at the end of Harmony Hall's first year as an organic grower. I recommend identifying just 7 things that your heart really longs for. Then structure an informed and well-planned mission to get there. Our hearts are healing, thank God, so we can now practice going for it!

Farmers, pay attention! Give up raising animals, go arable for self sufficiency and make weapons for real profits!

Simon Coveney TD is not busy working out how to get a fair price for animals from the factories and establishing that they can live longer than a measly 14 months. He has been over at a meeting with NATO in Wales, ironing out the possible winnings Ireland might get if we join the arms trade. So lets give up raising animals, let them run free and instead tinker about in your sheds with anything that looks like it might be explosive. This is his interest now. 6 Other Irish Officials, including one military, were with him and the Government asked the media NOT to cover the story attached!

County Groups Joined to take Legal Action against Government Corruption and the Destructive Energy Bill

Class Actions are not legal in Ireland but that is the sort of thing planned, nonetheless!

Yesterday, representatives of all the groups against pylons and wind farms met to decide a Month of Action. The most exciting agreement was to take a joined legal action against the Government’s Energy Policy in its entirety. Yes, that is all concerned individuals in the country and yes, that is probably everyone in Ireland. The action will be against the plan to lay or hang heavy cable the length and breadth of Ireland, fed by hundreds of massive inefficient wind farms, set to overshadow community after community. Until now, it was still open for debate as to whether developments should go ahead. Some people might still say ‘wind energy is good isn’t it, at least its not fossil fuels?’ It was every man for himself. Some looking to meet profits, Green Energy targets, investors' needs, developers, local councils, individual households, communities and organized groups, appeals to An Bord Pleanala, the National level Planning Office, and eventually the high court as well, to get a judicial review. If you were an individual going to the High Court to try and stop a wind farm next to your house, you had to have your special appeal ready – the unique flora and fauna, the protected species and habitat, an EPA and/or SP or whatever they are, to prove it! Until yesterday, each person was on their own, relying on their own funding, their own environmental survey, their own solicitor.

But, at once, in the table-by-table discussion at the meeting, the common denominator arose. Corruption. This is the one thing that can be said for each and every case. We have oceans of evidence for a claim that the national planning office is routinely granting permission to build wind farms against the guidance and ruling of its own officials, at local level. What happens is that local councils refuse the Wind Farms planning permission, having received hundreds of objections by residents. Then the developer, eg Gaeltech immediately appeal to the national planning office and are given the go ahead.

One person asked, who really has ‘the dirt’ to blow the whistle like that on the government? Another said, every one has at least one experience of how the system has shafted democracy, common sense and human decency. Thirty groups, possibly more, giving even spoken evidence would go a long way to exposing 1. the willful destruction of peoples’ homes, the environment and rights. 2. Even past interviews, on line, demonstrate how key politicians intend to export power, not merely 'do a necessary upgrade to the electricity grid' as they told the people. 3. New technology has not been explored and the wind farms they’re putting up are inefficient rejects, 10 years outdated. At first, an injunction could certainly be justified, stopping the further erection of windmills and pylons. The policy change, we will ask for, is the extension of the step back distance to ten times its current few metres. This is what distance a turbine must be from a house. 

The government are relying on an old divide and conquer approach. If you go into local planning office, you will be told that planning applications for wind farms are ‘Confidential’. These should be public offices and papers. Pylons, even a hundred metres high do not seem to need permission at all. I was even told by an ESB (those who manage the grid) representative that they have ‘squatters rights’ on my garden. How low is that? If they don’t happen to have a line across your garden already, they can make a compulsory purchase of it. (Look on facebook for the inspired man here who made the end of his garden a fine art installation and charges €500 an hour to even talk to him).

So, suffice to say, it was a good meeting. We worked out how to turn the tables. Instead of people having to prove that life and places are valuable to people who don’t care about life and nature, now the orchestrators will individually have to prove that they are not corrupt. I think we all know how that kind of a case will go. So, everyone, don’t hold back. Ring, they are part of Transparency International – an uncompromising not-for-profit organization to whom you can give a name. For example, Phil Hogan and Pat Rabbitte who have masterminded the least environmentally sensitive plans for Ireland and made sure they happened. Transparency International will check out if they have been compromised by ‘vested interests’, bribes, affiliations and generally monitor the transparency of their behavior. By the time we get to court, there will be so much ammunition that these two and many more at every level will be cringing and resigning. One good example of how this works is John Connor who moved from An Bord Pleanala, National Planning Management, to a management position at Eirgrid, the incompetent authority over the 300 billion pylon/substation/wind/frack/oil exploration… you name it, we are in for it, if we don’t stop it, policy.

Also, the meeting brought up some great protest places – The Wind Energy AGM in Kilkenny next month. The Eirgrid talk, up in Dublin Castle, and generally raising awareness of the plans and corruption happening. The exciting win for the Save Kilkenny Campaign, which saw an injunction put on Kilkenny Council and Contractors to halt work on the CAS bridge, was demonstration of the New Paradigm winning against the old. The old is entrenched, compromised by inappropriate loyalties and greed. The New is now forming a system for achieving positive change. It is fluid, each person operating as an individual, doing what feels best for them. It might be writing letters, talking to the politicians/public/press. It might be direct action, like a picket line and protest, to frustrate the inexhorable brazen implementation of plans, unchecked. It could be exercising legal weight. It is the combination of these that actually worked quite quickly, someone pointed out today. What was it, 9 weeks? If it was just legal, it could have been years to raise funds and get it heard in court. If it was just protests, the tide of public support could have been turned away by bad press and manipulative strategies to undermine the efforts and ignore the content of the objections. If it had just been political, the few councilors with integrity would have been suspended and the rest batoned down the hatchs with these words ‘our hands are tied’. A fluid, committed group, working with integrity

Plan of Attack 
So, join a group, local or national, officially request, of your local planning office, that you are notified of all planning applications for Wind Farms or any other Energy related applications. This means you don’t have to scour every daily paper to keep an eye on what they’re doing. They are obliged to let you know. Get one representative of your group to each council meeting, again to hear what is being planned. Also, send the names of developers, groups, institutions and individuals who you think might be working with an ulterior motive, to Transparency International. Basically, lets pool our skills and take heart, confidence and inspiration from a commonly-held goal: Save Ireland. The government can do better than make Ireland a power station for other countries.

Can I take this opportunity to invite you all to the World Wide Frack Down Party on the 9th October. This was John Lennon’s birthday and is my chancery birthday. Here in Kilkenny, we will again shine a light on appalling ideas, badly executed and suggest first that they should stop and second what we can do instead! That is, lets explore new technology. No grid, no turbines, just plausible power for all. As they used to say, in the Bionic Man, ‘We have the technology!’
