REFLECTIONS ON SEPTEMBER 11TH
are all very much in my thoughts and prayers at this important
time in our history. My special prayers to any of you who have
suffered losses directly or indirectly in the tragedies that
have befallen our nation –
and our world.
It ever has been that our planet has gone through ascending and descending
cycles of evolution. In each of these perpetual cycles of human growth
and development, darkness and light have waxed and waned
on the Earth.
We now are going through an ascending cycle of evolution in which the
forces of darkness are being cleansed from the very heart and soul
of Mother Earth to make way for the entrance for an even greater quantity
of light than we have yet to experience in our lifetimes. Although
it may seem as if we are mired in a period of inextricable darkness,
there actually is a clear path back to light and peace.
Many are writing about recent events from a geopolitical or socioeconomic
viewpoint. I would like to add to these voices by giving you a metaphysical
perspective that I hope will help you to come to terms with the events
in the world so you may choose to take action in as positive a way
as is possible for you.
* * *
At the moment of the terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington
DC, on September 11, 2001, there was an untenable amount of darkness
releasing from the core of Mother Earth. In this case, darkness
means negative thoughts, fear, anguish, pain, suffering, grief,
sorrow, greed, materialism, and repressed feelings. This darkness
had been building for centuries, not just years or decades. It
was seeking expression somewhere on the planet.
In recent years, this darkness has expressed itself as ethnic cleansing
in the former Yugoslavia, fighting in the Middle East, and in natural
disasters all over the planet, most notably in India.
An excess of negative thoughts actually lowers the magnetic resonance
or electromagnetic field around the Earth. A lowered or weakened electromagnetic
field is like a lowered or weakened immune system – it has less
resistance to negative energy.
The influence of your thoughts on the magnetic resonance of the Earth
is the part of the story over which you have control. There also are
other factors involved in the lowered magnetic resonance around the
Earth over which you do not have control. These include the harmful
effects of the depletion of the ozone layer, pollution, the proliferation
of harmful electronic technology, and the changing relationship of
the Earth to the Sun and the changing position of our solar system
relative to the universe as a whole, all of which are having a detrimental
effect on the electromagnetic field of the Earth.
When the electromagnetic field of the Earth is weak, it becomes far
more important for the people of the Earth to raise their own vibrations
that compose their electromagnetic fields and bring light to the planet
to compensate for what the physical earth is unable to provide. However,
when the Earth’s field is weak and the collective aura or electromagnetic
field of humanity is weak and negative energy is simultaneously releasing
from the earth, it is a lethal combination, as we witnessed last week.
By means of illustration, let’s say that the optimal level of
magnetic resonance is 10. The Earth has been hobbling along with its
magnetic field steadily moving toward about 5 ever since industrialization
began in the 1800s. The Earth’s magnetic field has not been at
full strength since the height of the Renaissance and the days of the
Agrarian Society. The birth of heavy industry and technology have eroded
the magnetic resonance of the Earth to about half of what it should
When combined with a release of negative energy as we experienced last
week, the magnetic resonance of the Earth plummeted from about 5 to
almost 0, thus enabling negative events to easily overtake us. Yet
due to a groundswell of love and prayers, the Earth is back up to about
a 5 and is pushing for a magnetic field stronger than it was before
the decline began - in only 10 short days.
The way you can raise the magnetic field of Earth to the level necessary
to protect all of us from the acts of terror that took place last week
is through acts of love, kindness, compassion, positive thinking and
You can begin to see there is a way out of our predicament.

prayed for guidance as to what could be done to help the Earth
in the days following the terrorist attacks. I had a vision
that I think may be helpful.
In the vision, I saw that a cloud of dark smoke released into the atmosphere
of the Earth at the moment the terrorist attacks occurred on September
11, 2001. This cloud was analogous to the clouds of dust and smoke
that shrouded the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in the days after.
The dark cloud blanketed the earth and very momentarily kept any light
from entering into the thought field of the Earth. Ringing the Earth,
I saw the Ascended Masters, arms outstretched, projecting love and
light back to the Earth. Around the Ascended Masters were legions of
Angels of Light supporting the Ascended Masters with more love and
light. Cradling the Earth, the Ascended Masters and Angels of Light
in his loving arms, as if he was holding a small baby, was Jesus Christ.
In the halo of light around his body were the symbols of all of the
world’s religions. Behind him glowed the golden light of God,
waiting to shower the Earth and the people of the Earth with as much
love and light as we needed, asked for, and were ready to absorb.
Gradually, each time a person prayed, a beam of light shot up to the
covering of dark smoke that blanketed the earth. Each beam of light
pierced a hole in the covering. Perceptibly, each tiny hole began to
connect with the other tiny holes. The holes in the blanket of darkness
around the Earth became larger and larger. The larger the openings
in the cover became, the more love and light flooded onto the planet.
Finally, over the course of several days, all of the many holes of
light connected with each other – and the cover of darkness was
This common act of collective prayer, love and compassion is singularly
responsible for bringing God’s light back to the planet – and
for preventing the occurrence for the moment of any further terrorist
attacks. If there is no darkness on the planet, people with negative
intentions cannot act. The re-entrance of the light onto the planet
essentially raises the magnetic resonance of the Earth and literally
rearranges molecules so that negative intentions cannot take physical
form – and so that positive intentions can more easily take physical
On a physical level, much more damage than actually occurred had been
planned. Please don’t feel frightened, but from an etheric
perspective, it appeared that the perpetrators also had plans for
destroying some of the bridges running east and west in and out
of Manhattan, for example. They also had thoughts of synchronizing
a second series of events on Tuesday, September 18th, a week later.
However, the flood of light that entered the earth plane made it
impossible for these events to gather the energy necessary to take
The light also guided the citizens of the planet brilliantly to hold
a prayer vigil at 8:48 am on Tuesday, September 18th, putting a stop
to any remaining negativity – for the moment. It is important
to continue your prayers and positive actions to counteract a rebirth
of destructive influences.
So, you can see how important every positive thought is in averting
further damage, and in returning the Earth to its natural energetic
Where do we go from here? On a physical level, governmental leaders
and policy makers are moving into a warlike posture. They suppose
this is a necessary response on a physical level. Yet, the grid
structure that holds the sheath of light around the planet is very
fragile right now. It could not adequately withstand any more pain,
grief, or sorrow that would be caused by the deaths of innocent
people, particularly from an instrument of war such as a bomb,
no matter which "side" the people were on. Just as a
physical body must heal and rebuild the immune system after an
illness or surgery, Mother Earth is healing now.

On a global level, the events of September 11, 2001 have created a
sense of brotherhood and commonality between many nations around
the globe as has no other event in our lifetimes.
The passage of Uranus and Neptune through Aquarius, the sign of brotherly
love, has opened the way for the formation of a global community, as
I have discussed in greater detail in my book, between now and 2012.
It is unfortunate that we have been bonded together through tragedy.
But this is one of the many important lessons about the interconnection
between every human being and the planet that we are all going to learn
- and profoundly experience – in coming years.
From my perspective in Florence, Italy, I witnessed an incredible outpouring
of love and sympathy from the Italian people. Shopkeepers along the
street in my neighborhood anxiously reached out to me in the days after
to ask me if my friends and family were safe in America. Italian friends
called every few hours to see if I had news. There were candlelight
vigils and demonstrations for peace every evening in the piazzas. The
churches were filled to capacity, as they have not been in post-World
War II years. The mood here is still one of great concern, vigilance
and support. From what I have read and heard, this reaction is common
in most places across the planet.

Many people have asked me if the recent events are a manifestation
of some kind of negative karma for the United States. While it
is natural to assume that if something bad happens to a group of
people, the group of people may have done something negative to
provoke the event. The rules of the game are different in an incident
such as this.
While the laws of cause and effect (karma) are always in effect, the
events of September 11, 2001, were compelled by higher laws of love
and compassion. There was a large quantity of negative energy that
needed to be released and transmuted on Planet Earth. A group of souls
who happened to be Americans volunteered to transmute this energy and
in many cases sacrifice their lives to help absorb the negativity.
In many cases, the people who lost their lives also chose to clear
negative karma of their own or they chose to accrue the positive karma
of helping to heal the planet while others simply volunteered to make
this sacrifice as part of
their soul’s work.
As tragic as is the massive loss of life, please be assured that there
were no accidents on a soul level. All who asked to participate and
give their lives did, and those who did not were spared. This is not
to suggest that America does not have karma to work out. Due to its
positive intentions, the nation’s good karma is strong–
at this point.
Still, it is probably obvious to you that a current of negative energy
has been flowing abundantly around the planet in recent years. It has
most prominently settled over and been expressed in Yugoslavia, the
Middle East and India. Those areas are becoming energetically depleted
and the souls of many in the United States, still energetically resilient,
volunteered to take on some of the negativity.
You may have noticed that during November and December 2000, when the
United States was mired in conflict over the presidential election – when
the US first started shouldering collective darkness – the guns
went silent in Yugoslavia and the Middle East. As soon as the US presidential
elections were "resolved", the fighting resumed in those
areas. It is simply a matter of shifting the responsibility for this
collective karma around the planet.
You may also wonder why the tragedies struck in New York City and Washington,
DC, both powerful centers of American power. There are even more complex
energetic dynamics in each of these two locations.
As for New York City, man-made civilization and structures simply defied
the laws of nature by putting too many people in too small a space
for nature to support in a healthy way over a sustained period – in
terms of energy, space for thought forms, and physical resources. During
the last decade, many people were asked on a soul level to voluntarily
leave New York City to make room for others. Unfortunately, many more
people took their places in search of the wealth generated on Wall
Sadly, it appears that there was a vortex of materialism and I dislike
saying this, but greed, building up in the area of the World Trade
Center. Combine this with the unnatural concentration of human beings – 20,000
of them - in a proportionately small section of Mother Earth. The Earth
simply could not hold all of the thoughts and energy generated on that
spot. This energy eventually had to be released and transmuted. As
illogical as it may sound because so many people were young and seemingly
successful, these souls did volunteer to be in the vulnerable position
they were in.
The fire continued to smolder for days as the negative energy around
the World Trade Center was burned and transmuted. Many of the noble
souls that hung shocked and confused in the ethers above the Twin Towers
have now moved solidly into the light. While a few still require prayers,
the etheric level is clearing.
The situation around the Pentagon is similar but slightly different.
The motivation for the people who volunteered to sacrifice themselves
at that site was also the cleansing of power – military power
as opposed to financial power. The energy of aggression was – and
still is – very strong around the Pentagon site. This is responsible
for the unnaturally long time that the fires burned in that location.
As of this writing, the souls who left their bodies at the Pentagon
are still mired in the etheric plane above the Pentagon. The energy
of anger and aggression is strong among this group of souls. Many have
not accepted that they have traded their physical bodies for bodies
of light. These people desperately require your prayers.
I do not mean to single out one group over another. However, the deaths
of the people at the Pentagon have been shrouded in secrecy because
of the nature of the work these souls performed. They have received
less attention and they are in need.
As for the people in the hijacked planes, many of the souls seem to
have ascended to places where further evolution may take place.

The message that I’d like to leave you with is that your prayers,
compassion, love, kindness, and positive thoughts and deeds, are in
tremendous need and of tremendous help in rebuilding the light structure
around the planet so that no further harm is inflicted – on anybody.
Perhaps you may consider
this visualization: Imagine that you are a bright lantern of golden
light. Radiate your light to your environment, to the earth below your
feet and to the heavens above. Do this visualization whenever you think
of it. You will do tremendous good for yourself and our planet – now
Blessings for Love & Light,
