Dear Jean

Thank you for finding the time to send this latest mailing which I find very inspiring and thought-provoking. I would also like to thank those compassionate souls who contribute to your compilations.

Yes, Mark Quire "Some Food for Thought" I too agree with you about the mindless waste of our resources. In this country (South Africa), it is not only fuel but our precious water that people just let run out of taps and then have the audacity to question the fact that they have to pay for it. The same goes for electricity. Thank you also for including some of the inspiring writings of Robert Muller.

And to Randje - Thank you so much for your thoughts on "Re: the Afghanistan Petition" etc. You have been able to put into words what I feel but I have felt so frustrated because I find it difficult to verbalise (what I feel) to be the truth. Maybe I should write more often?

Also to "Lennon, David" on "The water of fear is only a few feet deep". Congratulations on jumping! The other day a friend was telling me about the anger he is feeling - a burning, inner anger that he cannot really put a finger on. I told him that the basis of anger is fear and suggested that he try and find what it is he fears to which he agreed.

Thank you also to Leti Guerra on "Friendship by Jefferey Doughtie". I know that most people are not at all sympathetic towards prisoners particularly those on death row. Two weeks ago a South African woman, Marriette Bosch, was executed in Botswana (a neighbouring country) for murdering her best friend. She was not permitted to say good-bye to her family who were also not advised of the day nor time that the hanging would occur. A local radio station asked listeners to give their views of this inhumane act by the Botswanan authorities. The listeners were unanimous in their judgement: She, the murderess, was unsympathetic toward the woman she killed, she did not allow her friend time to say goodbye to her family, so why should this condemned murderess be allowed such "privileges"? I must admit that I was shocked at the attitude of the public - to find that we are still living very much in 'an eye for an eye' mentality.

Blessings of love, light and laughter,

Subject: Earth on Edge and the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment
Date: Fri, 13 Apr 2001

"To survive, our minds must taste redwood, and agate, octopi, bat, and in the bat's mouth, insect. It's hard to think like a planet, but we've got to try."

- James Bertolino, poet

The following report by Bill Moyers will be premiering on PBS June 19, 2001 at 8 p.m. EST (check local listings) with a related website launch date of June 1, 2001.

See http://www.pbs.org/earthonedge/ for more information.

K. Lauren de Boer, Editor/Executive Director EarthLight Magazine

Acclaimed journalist Bill Moyers and an award-winning team of producers reveal recent scientific evidence that we are approaching a key environmental threshold. Bill Moyers Reports: Earth on Edge showcases new data depicting the scale of human impact on the planet's life-support systems. The two-hour broadcast explores one of the the most important questions of the new century: What is happening to Earth's capacity to support nature and civilization?

The broadcast coincides with the launch of the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, an international effort to gauge the health of the world's forests, grasslands, coastal and freshwater areas. Preliminary findings were featured in the World Resources Institute's World Resources 2000-2001: People and Ecosystems: The Fraying Web of Life. The statistics from their preliminary findings are staggering: half the world's wetlands lost in one century, half the world's forests chopped down, 70 percent of the world's major marine fisheries depleted, the world's reefs at risk.

But the broadcast pushes well past the numbers. Moyers and his team also take us on a journey of hope to meet people from the American Midwest to Mongolia who are pioneering sustainable solutions to ecological problems. Each story takes place in one of five major ecosystems: forest, agriculture, coastal, grassland, and fresh water. Reports from Kansas, British Columbia, Brazil, South Africa, and Mongolia illuminate the ways in which human demands over the past century have been wearing holes in the fabric of life. This broadcast profiles individuals who are confronting the challenge head on, people who understand how their lives depend on Earth's ecosystems and how their own energy and dedication might help restore them.

Moyers tells individual stories, in far-flung locations, but in the end it is strikingly clear that the program is about all of us-what we've done to the Earth and what we can still do to turn things around, if we act quickly. Bill Moyers Reports: Earth on Edge will be augmented by an extensive web site as well as an education and outreach campaign directed by WRI. The site will provide in-depth information about ecosystems as well as updates on their status and information about how you can take action.

WRI is also organizing a series of live events and panel discussions promoting public dialogue around the issues raised by Earth on Edge and the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment.

Subject: Standing Committee on Environment & Sustainable Development - Fax

Wildlife everywhere must be protected. I just took action and I'm hoping others will as well.

Thank you for all your inspiring words.



Canada has over 350 plants and animals recognized as endangered or "at risk". Animals like the Grizzly Bear, Peregrine Falcon, Killer Whale, Polar Bear and Burrowing Owl.

After years of hard work from concerned Canadians and Americans, the Canadian government is now finalizing its endangered species legislation - the Species at Risk Act. The bad news - as scientists like Dr. David Suzuki have indicated - is that the draft law is too weak in current form to protect Canada's endangered plants and animals. The good news - we can still change the law and the time to do so is now. With your help - just a minute of your time - we can get a decent law for Canada's endangered species. One with teeth.

The draft law is now before Canada's parliamentary Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development. The Committee is holding hearings in April and May to consider changes to the draft law.

THIS REPRESENTS A MAJOR OPPORTUNITY TO STRENGTHEN THE LAW. At the last hearings on Canadian endangered species legislation, the Committee recommended some key improvements to the legislation. The Committee can strengthen the Species at Risk Act - with your help.

Take a moment to send your free online fax to the Committee. It's especially important to add your OWN comments to the fax. Say why you want a strong law for Canada's endangered wildlife. One that protects habitat - the areas that animals need to breed, feed and raise their young - the areas they need to survive. One that has scientists not politicians deciding which endangered plants and animals should be protected.

BC Endangered Species Coalition - Protecting Wildife at Risk


Note from Jean: It is indeed critically important that the Canadian Parliament enacts a law that significantly reduces the erosion of biodiversity in Canada and increases the chance of all species *without exception* to survive this terribly destructive era of maximum profit for some, with no healthy legacy for the future. The clearcutting of vast forested habitats, especially in fragile slow-growing boreal forests in the north of Quebec, has catastrophic consequences for wildlife.


Note from Jean: Of course I'd like to read from other sources some corroborative evidence of what is alleged below to satisfy me completely, but if this is actually true, *it is really amazing!* Yet I'd very much like to have confirmation this is not yet another hoax...

Very encouraging news!


by Patricia Resch

Dr Berrenda Fox is the holistic practicioner of the Avalon Wellness Centre in Mt Shasta, California. The Avalon Clinic represents the re-emergence of the ideal of healing as practised on the original Isle of Avalon. Dr Fox has proven through blood tests that some people have actually developed new strands of DNA.

PR: Berrenda, tell us a little about your background.

BF: I have doctorates in physiology and naturopathy. During my training in Europe I also was involved with the media and this still continues in film and management. As you know, I'm working with FOX Television Network to bring about understanding of extraterrestrials and their role in what is happening with mankind at this time. The most well known are 'Sightings' and 'The X Files'.

PR: What are the changes that are happening at this time on the planet, and how are our bodies being affected?

BF: There are major changes, mutations that haven't occurred, according to geneticists, since the time we supposedly came out of the water. Several years ago in Mexico City there was a convention of geneticists from around the world, and the main topic was the DNA change. We are making an evolutionary change, yet we don't know what we are changing into.

PR: How is our DNA changing?

BF: Everyone has one double helix of DNA. What we are finding is that there are other helixes that are being formed. In the double helix there are two strands of DNA coiled into a spiral. It is my understanding that we will be developing twelve helixes. During this time, which seems to have started maybe 5 to 20 years ago, we have been mutating. This is the scientific explanation. It is a mutation of our species into something for which the end result is not yet known.

The changes are not known publicly, because the scientific community feels it would frighten the population. However, people are changing at the cellular level. I am working with three children right now who have three DNA helixes. Most people know and feel this. Many religions have talked about the change and know it will come about in different ways. We know it is a positive mutation even though physically, mentally, and emotionally it can be misunderstood and frightening.

PR: Are these children displaying any characteristics different from other children?

BF: These are children who can move objects across the room just by concentrating on them, or they can fill glasses of water just by looking at them. They're telepathic. You would almost think by knowing these children that they are half angelic or superhuman, but they're not. I think they are what we are growing into during the next few decades.

PR: Do you think this will happen to all of us?

BR: It seems like most people who were born before 1940 have not been able to make the shift, but have initiated something into the next generation that gives them the capacity to form another helix within our lifetime. Our immune and endocrine systems are the most evident of these changes. That is one of the reasons I work with research in immunological testing and therapy. Some adults that I have tested actually do have another DNA helix forming. Some are even getting their third. These people are going through a lot of major shifts in their consciousness and physical bodies, because it is all one. In my opinion, the Earth and everyone here is raising its vibration. Many of the children born recently have bodies that are magnetically lighter. Those of us that are older and choose to change have to go through many physical changes.

PR: What causes change in bodies born with normal two strand DNA?

BF: The easiest way to mutate our DNA is through a virus. Consequently viruses are not necessarily bad. Viruses live only on living tissue. DNA viruses like Epstein Barr and the Herpes 6 change cellular structure. The retro virus HIV is not a DNA virus. Instead of mutating the body, it actually eats it up. Most people who go through this process and come out the other side have a new profession, a new way of thinking, or at least a starting of a new way of life. Even though they may feel really sick, tired, or hopeless at times, it is a gift. They are being given a chance to change their DNA structure and their body into a lighter, healthier body that can see them into the next generation. The angels that are being seen are signs that we are shifting. As I understand it, we have until about 2012 to complete this process.

PR: What other changes should we expect to see?

BF: There will be no disease, we will not need to die. We will be able to learn our lessons not through suffering but through joy and love. The old system has to crumble away, and is not doing that without putting up a big fight. So you have all the wars; a lot of the medical type of healing is not working; the government is not working. A lot of the old paradigms can no longer exist, yet are fighting to be maintained, but there is no doubt that it is changing. Those of us who have chose to live at this time are the forerunners of almost a new species. It is human, yet we are at the same time actually manifesting heaven on Earth. We are receiving extra help from masters and extraterrestrials, angelic beings, and learning to go inward. The more we are able to go in and listen to that quiet voice, the more we are in tune with the changes that are happening.

PR: What are some of the side effects of these changes?

BF: With a cellular change you are sometimes going to feel as though you are not here. You may feel exhaustion, because we are literally changing cells and becoming new beings. Like a new baby, you may need lots of rest. Mental confusion and not being able to concentrate on routine tasks may happen as we are being programmed for something larger. Aches and pains throughout the body for which there is no specific cause are common. Many people feel as though they are going crazy. If they go into an orthodox medical office, most likely they will be put on Prozac, because they can't define what it is. It is difficult for the medical profession because they are not used to dealing with the energy body. Because the chakras are related to our endocrine system, women will go through hormonal changes. There may be crying without knowing why because crying releases hormones. Many women are going through menopause earlier because we are accelerating. Men may be very frustrated with the exhaustion when they are used to being very active. They may feel their feminine side coming out because this is the intuitive side. The emotional therapy that has been coming out in the last 20 to 30 years has been speeded up with new techniques for these changes. We are actually doing a tremendous amount of emotional work in a very short time which would have taken thousands of years.

PR: How do you you treat someone who is going through these changes?

BF: I approach it from the viewpoint of working with individual beings instead of treating a disease, 'Doctor' in Latin means educator. The only effective service you can perform as a true healer is to empower individuals with the necessary tools and reassure them that what is happening is real, and that they can heal and be free of the 'negative' symptoms while healing. First, I require immunological testing that is not traditionally done. This is a blood laboratory test performed by an advanced specialty research lab. Then I give the patient the information themselves. This is much like a map of the changes so they can have the power to heal. I am not the healer but only an instrument in their individual healing process. There is power in a person looking at their own blood tests and seeing the map of what is going on in their bodies that causes something to click in the subconscious. The real key is that the person take responsibility and do their own work. What I use as tools are not commonly used. I use a lot of Organotherapy, which is a glandular treatment from Europe, to build up the hormonal system to accept the changes in the DNA. Also, I use homeopathy to work on the energetic body, vitamins, herbs, and cold laser therapy. The therapy depends entirely on individual needs. Much of what I do has been accessed from those whom I would call older sisters and brothers who have gone on before us. They are from other solar systems that we have all come from to help this planet with its transition.


Extracted from an article 'The Bigger Picture' by Susanna Thorpe-Clark

We are being changed physically from carbon-based beings with 2 strands of DNA into crystalline beings with 1,024 strands of DNA (eventually), because only crystalline substances can exist on higher dimensional levels. We are in fact having our bodies merged with Sirian DNA strands, as this format is close enough to our own to be able to integrate with relatively little side effects. It is not just we humans who are changing, but all life forms on Earth are becoming crystalline. All the fish in the sea, the flowers and trees in your garden, the birds in the sky, even your pet dog or cat. Everything is changing. Nothing will die or be destroyed, for we are all moving together into a new state of being. This new state of being requires therefore that we physically, mentally and emotionally let go of 3rd dimensional concepts. Just as indeath, the letting go is a major part of the change process, for one cannot take the old values and way of being into a new completely different afterlife. So the progression through changes compels us to let go of current relationships, jobs, careers, homes, possessions, and so on, if they are unable to support our new way of being. Is it any wonder therefore, that there is a great deal of anxiety and fear being felt because these changes are already in progress, even though most people are not conscious of it. Also, the changes to our physiological makeup are currently speeding up and there are many temporary physical symptoms that are occurring in our bodies as a consequence of this. Some of these symptoms are:

Flu-like symptoms - high temperatures, sweating, aching bones and joints etc, but which do not respond to antibiotics.

Migraine headaches - severe pain that is not relieved with pain killers.

Occasional diarrhea.

Occasional runny nose - with sneezing which lasts 24 hours and is not a cold or hayfever.


Ringing in the ears

Heart palpitations

Feeling the whole body vibrate - especially at night when one is in a relaxed state.

Intense muscle spasms - plus pain in the body, often the back.

Tingling - in arms, hands, legs or feet.

Loss of muscular power - in hands, caused by changes in circulation system.

Occasional breathing difficulties - and/or noticing stronger or louder breathing when in a relaxed state.

Immune system changes

Lymphatic system changes

Feeling tired - or exhausted from minor exertion.

Wanting to sleep - longer and more often than normal.

Toe nails and hair growing quicker than normal.

Bouts of depression for no real reason.

Delving into the past - and looking at relationships, gaining clarity on personal issues.

Feeling of a huge purge

Tension, anxiety and high stress levels - because one feels that something is going on but doesn't know what it is.

Some of these symptoms are being felt by a great many people. Many are rushing off in panic to their doctor, chiropractor, herbalist, and so on, and are usually told that there is nothing wrong with them. And this is the truth. For all these symptoms are just temporary and simply indicate that these physiological changes are occurring.


Go with the flow, don't fight it. If you feel tired and exhausted, rest and get plenty of sleep.

Drink lots of water for you are detoxifying and dehydrating quicker than usual.

To relieve emotional tension and stress levels take Valerian.

Fenugreek relieves stress on the lymphatic system and helps the detoxification.

To relieve muscle spasm take Valerian and try mud baths or a long, hot soak in a bath to which you add a cup of Epsom salts. Do this daily.

Ask your angel guides to help relieve any pain. They are just waiting to be asked !

Most symptoms seem to last a couple of weeks, then clear up. Some symptoms may recur from time to time.

Recognise that even if you are having heart palpitations or breathing difficulties that it is the heart chakra or the throat chakra that is unblocking and that the symptoms are temporary. You aren't dying, just changing! However, don't just take my word for it. Seek medical guidance if you are unsure.

These changes are not neccessarily being experienced by everyone concurrently.

A very small percentage of adults have already completed the entire change into crystalline form and now embody 1,024 strands of DNA. One report is of a woman who has grown 3 inches taller and a footsize larger. All children under the age of 7 have also now completed the change, or will shortly do so.

Babies born in the past 2 years have all been born with the full set of DNA. Some people are only just starting to move through these changes, and many others have yet to start. This process of change is known as the Awakening, or as the Ascension process.



NOTE: I did not network the meditation suggestion that Soleira mentions below -- it was related to the foot-and-mouth disease -- because it did not feel right either to me the way it was being presented. Someone else had sent it to the PAN list. To find out more about this Planetary Awakening Network (PAN) and join it, you simply need to visit http://www.n2012.com/pan.htm

Global Consciousness ~ Another Way

This is an email written to all those who join every week in global meditations to help end problems everywhere. There seem to be two ways to be in these meditations. The first is from one of being troubled by what's wrong in the world and setting out to fix it. The second is by being and energising everything that you intend to create. Now you might think, well can't you do both or is there really any difference? There definitely is a difference...a BIG difference. And that is what this email is about.

On the solstice a few weeks ago, an email was written which went round the world saying what horrors were occurring here in England (where we live). It called for people everywhere to send their light and love to this country to end this horror/trauma. When we heard about it, we were concerned because we believe that the Foot and Mouth disease has been perfectly timed (1) to keep people off the land while new and wondrous energies are coming up from the Earth herself and (2) to teach us all just how all of life is interconnected now. Perhaps this is the final breakthrough in our having honouring, respectful relationships with animals now.

So what happened. Since the solstice, the energies here in England have been awful...and they were wonderful before that. In fact at our place, we were feeling the orgasmic energies of paradise reality. Since the solstice we've felt as if we were fending off a blanket of heavy energy. And now the news is filled with all kinds of stories about England as plague ridden, falling apart at the seams, etc. Where did this come from? From our perspective, England is doing just fine. Spring is springing out all over in the field outside our house. We're in an area with F&M signs everywhere and yet there is only one reported case within twenty to thirty miles. The farmers are standing up for themselves at long last and speaking against what's not right. Government policies are being questioned...and Tony Blair is delaying the election in order to make sure that politicians keep their energy and attention on solving the problems. All great stuff in my books.

What you give energy to is what gets created. So if you meditated on the solstice for poor old horror ridden England, then perhaps you were a part of creating the England that is now all over the news. And I'm sure that too is perfect in some way, but does it have to be like this? As responsible global consciousness workers, we have got to stop buying in to the horror, trauma, drama that is fed to us every day by media, governments, corporations and even well meaning spiritual people. Stop creating the mess that is spoon fed to us every day. England is not falling apart. Everything is evolving just as it should be. It's how you choose to perceive it that determines the reality.

Now I'm not saying don't take responsible action to bring about change, nor am I saying don't meditate for good causes. What I am saying is that there is a better and more effective way to do it. If you're going to be a global consciousness creator, then here are some guidelines for creating the world reality you seek:

1. Before you tune into a meditation, check how you feel about it. Does it feel right to participate? Are you in a good, clear energy space to participate? Are you coming into it with any judgements, concerns or upsets about this subject or anything else for that matter?

2. Once you know it feels right for you to do and you're on for it energetically, then tune your frequency, your energy fields to the place where the perfect outcome already exists. Peace in every heart. Paradise on Earth. Abundance for all. Etc.

3. Are you aware that there are two distinct energy matrixes to link to? One is the energy matrix of the old 3D world that is full of the horror/trauma/drama and the other is the energy field of paradise, heaven on Earth, the reality that many of us are now living fully every moment of every day. Which one would you consciously choose to give your energy to?

4. If you've chosen for paradise, then intend it, relax, and enjoy the wonderful feeling of what you've always dreamed of moving now into reality. For me, the energy begins to sing just in front of and above my heart in my energy fields. The world is a wonderful and beautiful place. My relationships are profound. And every moment of being on this Earth is a pure and precious gift of life.

With love Soleira Green Speaking from and for the United Kingdom(s)


NOTE FROM JEAN: Soleira's advice above, #1 to #4, is especially relevant to anyone meditating to help alleviate the current crisis in the Middle East.
