Saints Transmission: Conversation with Saint Jude

Lifting Vibration through Diet and Lifestyle:

ST: What's happening to me? My nerves feel fried and I'm having trouble writing.

Saint Jude: Expect your body to resist changes happening on the planet.  After all, your body feels frightened.  It's never experienced these types of changes.  The purification process alone can be tremendously scary to the cells in your body.  So be easy on it.  Give your body lots of love and attention.  Feed it high vibrational foods (foods grown with loving intention), drink purified water and talk nicely to your body.  Self-massage, aromatherapy and rest go a long way in calming your cells and nerves.  Prayer, meditation, energy medicine, and music (healing music) need to be added to your daily regime.

ST: Yes, I do most of that, especially the music, food and vibration.  I have a question about food and vibration.  Can someone vibrating a low frequency eat high vibrational food? They seem to be addicted to low vibrational food.

SJ: Oh, my dear, what a fantastic question! Yes, addiction is low vibration. When a person breaks an addiction he or she raises their vibration. That's why yoga and meditation for instance, or music therapy are so helpful in breaking addiction or low vibration habits.  This is why AA groups prove helpful.  Yeshua provides a high vibration healing environment.

So with food, what I recommend is changing the diet slowly over time. For an omnivore, cut meat consumption out one day of the week, then two days of the week, and so on.  Eat only free range meat--it has a higher vibration.  Most of the time.  Switch right away to organically grown grains and produce and drink a lot of purified water.  Do a colon and liver cleanse with doctor or healer supervision.

ST: How do you recommend introducing body work and energy medicine?

SJ: Change the diet first and purify the body on the physical level.  Second, deal with emotional and spiritual issues--purify in this regard.  The physical purification takes shorter time .  You'll need healer supervision and therapy or the other option is a weekly massage and join a yoga or meditation class.  More disciplined people can get DVDs from the library (for meditation and yoga).  What ever program you choose, stick with it.  Don't get discouraged when you go through a rough patch.  There are good and bad days relatively speaking.  Keep going, move forward and count milestones along the way, but don't dwell on the past. This will actually lower your vibration because you'll rehash painful situations and errors of judgement.

ST: This sounds like excellent advice, but a lot of work. How many people will pursue such a program? Addiction and denial seem comfortable to some people, like an old friend even if it abuses them.

SJ: There's that saying, "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make her drink." It's worse with humans. The horse will eventually sort things out and drink from the trough.  But the addicted human might shun help and repeat a number of rationalizations.  "I'm not an addict just because I spend my day in an alcoholic stupor...I choose this..."

ST: Or does it choose them?

SJ: Well, now you're getting back into victim-thinking. Addiction=low vibration.  Raising the vibration heals the mind-body-spirit of addiction. We have already established this fact.  The body-mind-spirit longs for ecstasy--better to find that in prayer and meditation than drugs, (alcohol or other addictions).

Solstice: Let the Light Shine In

Transmission: Saint Jude

Happy Winter/Summer Solstice! This symbolizes light coming into the dark places.  You've heard this before and perhaps not thought much about it.  But what does it mean to shine light into the dark places? I think you can take your imagination in this direction and contemplate healing light.  What does this look like to you?

Imagine entering a dark room with only a flashlight in hand.  Shadows creep up on you, and you might shine your light on things that frighten you.  Perhaps there is a silent man in the room, that you didn't know was present until you shine your light on him.  This startles you.  It would startle anyone.  Well, think of the proverbial light dredging up all sorts of things and events you prefer not to notice.

Now instead of a flashlight, switch to a flood light.  Wow, now look at all the events and things you couldn't see before, hiding in the shadows, lurking in your deep subconscious.  Now, it's all coming up for you to assess, reevaluate, and heal.  But you can't do this unless you stay centered.  You can't do this unless you have faith in the power of light.  But you can't have faith in the power of light while also devoting yourself and your life to darkness or dark things.  So now is your time to choose.  Will you make the effort to walk towards and bathe in the light.  Or will you stay stuck in fear and perpetuate darkness on the earth? Your choice, but I tell you that I choose the light.

If you want to converse with saints and angels of light, then you must purge yourself of darkness. You must not shine only the flashlight, but shine the flood light.  You must walk away from darkness with determination.  Yes, I know the temptation and the lure into the dark underworld never ceases to amaze me.  It's magnetic, powerful, and charismatic.  Darkness portrays illusions, and pretends to satisfy your deepest desires, but does it really?

This time of year you celebrate diverse religious holidays.  The most famous is the birth of Yeshua.  This ritual is so famous, that even non-Christians feel drawn to the hope, and renewal brought with this symbolic birth.  Ancient astrologers followed the signs and a special star that fortold lightness shining into darkness.  As you light candles in a dark room, and watch the shadows dance across faces and walls, something primal stirs in you, the same primal urges that stirred in your ancestors of long ago. Lighting the Hanukkah candles or the Christmas tree also represent symbolic acts of the light. Some cultures light bonfires this time of year to signify hope and togetherness. 

And if you're in the Southern Hemisphere, light starts to wane right about now.  This is also a time to reflect on the power of the sun and the solar system.  This is a time to plant for harvest.  This is a time to give gratitude for all the light and love in your life.  This is a time of joy and simple pleasures, as the light decreases little by little each passing day.  And absorb the nourishing light of the sun.

We wish you a happy solstice.  May the light shine in all of you forever and eternity.

Prayer of Gratitude (Blessings for Food and Water and Air)

(When you eat a meal, cook a meal, drink a glass of water, take a bath, etc... bless the food, water, and all elementals with this prayer).

I thank all the loving hands that brought me this food or water.
I thank the earth and all of her creatures that participated in bringing me
this food or water.
I thank the seeds, the sprouts, the water, air, sun, moon, stars and all the planets
for bringing me this food or water.
I thank God in all Divine Wisdom and the Universe for bringing me this food or water.
And I send love out to all of these creatures and elementals, all the beings that made this meal or water possible (fill in the blank).
And I ask the love that I send out to spread like a virus filling every heart, every soul, and every mind of every being connected to me and this gift of life.
I ask this love that I send out to multiply a thousand-fold and to keep expanding and spreading joy, light, and goodness for all.

Blessings, blessings, blessings, to All Creatures.  Blessings, blessings, blessings to all beings forever more.

Saints Transmission: Yeshua and the Art of Defenselessness

Saint Jude Transmission: Defensive Acts Lead Only to More Fear

Yeshua, my companion and teacher didn't promote the concept of "an eye for an eye," and he would have never avenged anyone, not even the smallest creature that bit him.  Where did humanity go astray? Why are you always fighting so smugly among yourselves. Don't you see that since we are all One Being, a single entity, when you divide and conquer, you promote the growth of cancer cells.  When you promote the attitude of "us verses them" or "an eye for an eye," you are living in the illusion of duality. When you act this way you harm your immune system and throw your body out of balance, not to mention your mind.

Now Yeshua was an enlightened Master.  He knew the Oneness of All and he lived this concept daily, if not hourly.  He also lived a life of defenselessness.  Now, first, you're thinking people who live that way act like passive wimps.  They lack courage and that sort of thing.  But no, just the opposite.  A defenseless person lives in the Power of Love, not fear.  They see no reason to fight back, to live in the illusion of duality or to reap a karmic debt by attacking their "oppressor" simply because they don't live with the idea of oppressors and victims. They don't see themselves as victims.

Yeshua did not go to war with those that persecuted him. And it's not that he took the sins of the world in the way that it has been interpreted for thousands of years, instead, he revealed the secret of defenselessness.  He claimed that by not fighting back, by allowing the karmic debt to be paid through defenselessness, peace can be obtained.  Yes, the process is ugly, and painful, and there might be shortterm suffering.  If you believe in the idea of martyrdom, then you might play out a drama around that concept.  That gets old, (yawn).

Let me give you some more recent examples.  Yeshua and the saints don't consider Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr. or John Lennon as martyrs, not at all.  Each of these beings, though not perfect in everyday life (none of them treated their wives with the respect they deserved), reached a level of enlightenment where they knew death was stalking them. And all three of these men chose not to fight back, not to go on the attack, because even if you kill someone or injure someone in self-defense, you reap a karmic debt.  You are bonded to that soul until you clear that debt.  Does that make sense?

God-Goddess only judges on the act, not the reason or rationalization of the act. We don't deal with children who whine, "he did it first..." That's just old news.  Your souls have lived many lives.  And in these lives you have killed others, you have poisoned others, you have starved many, you have cheated, betrayed and harmed others.  In other lives, you helped others through generosity and you might have even reached sainthood.  You might have served an entire lifetime and cleansed your karmic debt, only to become a warrior in your next life without seeking atonement. So then you wonder why you have so many persecutors in this lifetime!

So two thousand or so years after Yeshua preached the art of defenselessness, and thousands of years since Buddha taught humans about illusions and karma, humanity still struggles with this concept and grows more violent every day.  You thirst for violence and drama, you hunger for it and you're never satisfied so you keep upping the ante.  Your rationalizations no longer work, as if they ever did.  You must stop wars and by stopping wars, you also stop terrorism.  By making sure that everyone is fed, clothed and has proper shelter to protect them from the elements, then you will walk the road towards peace in the world.  By the way the only solution to terrorism is LOVE and COMPASSION. You are fools to think otherwise and you're spending millions of dollars on a solution that won't work.  Meanwhile, people are starving to death, and people are dying from preventable diseases, which you don't have money to help, or so you say that you don't.

You must stop all these useless wars and move past this place of victimhood and martyrdom.  All this drama is wearing us saints out.  It's a thriller by the minute, more paranoid fantasies leashed upon the world and money is spent on keeping this illusion going, instead of transmuting all this drama into compassion and love.  So if you find yourself in a position where you need to defend yourself, drop your arms, open your heart, and don't fight back.  Shine light on every cell in your body and every cell in the body of your attacker.  Know that it's all an illusion anyway.  You're attacking yourself because remember there is only One Being here.

So if you feel that the world is out to get you, then examine your thoughts, patterns, and beliefs. The world is not out to get you. If you look around you will find more evidence of love than of fear. As you develop consciousness, which you can't do if you're constantly on the defensive, you will only experience different faces of love.  You will feel called to love, and to spread compassion.  If you want to save the planet, and lose the illusion of duality, then you must take this necessary risk.  When you catch yourself acting defensive, stop.  Change your mind and change your heart.

Yeshua doesn't condone any war.  There is no good reason to go to war.  There are no good reasons to kill another being.  There are no good reasons to send millions of animals to slaughter houses so you can feast on the carnage.  This is not the act of an enlightened being, but a soul still living in darkness and rationalizing his fears. Animals for instance don't enjoy being killed and eaten, but at least demonstrate the act of defenselessness, especially cows.

If you find yourself or someone you love in an abusive situation, don't go on the attack. Don't judge the person, but get out of the situation and know that you can and will find shelter.  Send love and light to this abuser to the best of your ability and in time you will forgive, heal and move on, but never, never ever stay with an abuser.  Don't rationalize that you can't leave because you can. You must otherwise you enable the toxic behavior in the abuser.

Follow your intuition and don't stay or wallow in dark places.  Face your fears and learn how to love.  You can't do this if you feel dis-empowered so seek the help you need to build your confidence and empower yourself. Pray to the saints or Yeshua.  Pray for peace, love, and compassion to heal your situation.  And know on some level that you are paying off a karmic debt.  Nothing comes back to you to haunt you for no reason; there's history involved.  But that doesn't mean you should stick around and allow yourself to be beaten.  This is not what we mean by defenselessness. Use your brain that God gave you, and check in with your heart.

However, if you ever find yourself in a situation and you know it is your time to die, then surrender to it the way that Lennon, King, and Gandhi did and you'll clear your karmic debt.  Your soul never dies, it just spirals onward towards enlightenment, one step forward, three steps back, four steps forward.  I realize that this lesson will cause you to feel angry.  That's okay, work through that anger to a place of healing.

We love humanity.  We love this One Being that encompasses All of Us.  Love is real and everything else is just a cheap drama produced by a film director with a bottom line.  You can choose to buy into the drama, but believe me, it will end in disappointment.  Or you can finally comprehend that only Love is Real.  And Love, my dears, is the best show in town.

Francesco and Clare of Assisi Transmission: Play

Transmission from Saint Francesco and Clare of Assisi:

Why do you take yourselves so seriously? Do children take themselves too seriously? How can you solve the world's myriad of problems if you take yourself too seriously? How can you gain access to your imagination and creativity if your stuck in seriousness?

Oh, I know what you'll say, "Francesco and Clare, you are fools for love or you're just plain fools." But if you don't sing, dance, write poems, engage in community celebrations how will you get to know your neighbors, and how will you find your role in your community? I'm not saying that we should underestimate the gravity of our situation with the earth.  No, I'm not saying that at all.

But playing, (not the same as playing games), liberates the mind and unleashes the power of the heart. Brainstorming and playing creative games can provide answers to various problems you face. Laughter releases wrinkles from your skin and gives more flexibility to your joints.  Comedy, getting together with others and enjoying the gift of laughter should never be underestimated.  Share poetry, share songs, and dance even if you think you don't know how to dance.  Even a five year old knows how to dance so why do you say you have two left feet? Hmmm, two left feet, now that's interesting. 

Tell jokes, find the humor in life's circumstances.  Learn to play a musical instrument, learn to express your emotions through singing. Get together with friends and go for a hike.  Meditate with Buddhist monks for a change. Go to an event that you would have never gone to in the past, but think would be fun.  Hang out in a bookstore or go to a movie.  Share what you love with others.

If you think that friars and monks are serious people who never laugh, never joke, never dance for joy or revel in the beauty of the earth, then you're missing the point.  If you think spiritual leaders have no sense of humor, you are wrong again.  Anyone who takes themselves too seriously needs a gentle kick in the butt.  Laugh at your mistakes then learn from them.  Allow others to laugh at your mistakes and allow them to learn from them.

I made lots of mistakes in my lifetime.  Clare made lots of mistakes in her lifetime.  We had fun, oh, we had so much fun, playing the roles of Christ's fools.  Someone must play the role of the juggler, the fool for love troubadour.  If you must report dire news then at least find some humor in it.  Oh, I know, climate change is no laughing matter, but taking it seriously to the point of doom and gloom will only cause humans to fall deeper in denial.

It's through playing I tell you that you'll find solutions.  It's through the arts, and not so much the sciences that you will find true healing.  You may not believe these words now, but in time it will all make sense.  Arts aren't frivilous.  God created the creative spirit.  So dabble in it.  Paint, sculpt, draw, sing, compose, and write.  Play with children.  Laugh with children and listen to the wisdom of the child. After all, it's their future that you gamble away. Retrieve your state of innocence.  Purify your hearts and play.

Last but not least, if you want to help someone change their diet, cook for them. Show them the pleasure of eating healthy foods.  If you want someone to treat the earth better, model ecological friendly behavior in a fun way.  You must create a magnetic attraction to greener lifestyles.  Spread love, not fear.  Spread good humor and show others you can laugh at yourself as you evolve.
