Here is a copy of Franci Prowse’s recent “viewsletter”… it’s such an interesting take on the value of money:
As Venus leaves her conjugal bed with Jupiter in Capricorn and moves in with the Moon in airy Aquarius, we have the opportunity to contemplate both global and local community and politics. Next full moon is 12-12-08 in watery Pisces, and should be a doozy. For the first time in U.S. history many well off people are redefining what “home” is, mainly by experiencing not having one. Having a house or several houses does not guarantee a feeling of belonging. To what or whom do we belong? When is a house a home?
A friend sent this quote: “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” –Thomas Jefferson 1802
There is one big ooops being revealed. I remember my father showing me a dollar that said “Silver certificate” on the top. He explained that our money was once worth something, but now, is subject to manipulation. He was a social studies/history teacher who understood what it takes to earn and hold civil liberties. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t understand, and when he gave me 14 silver dollars in mint condition for my 14^th birthday, I spent them, on a Donovan record, and some food, shared with a friend. Now they would be worth 50 times what they were in 1964. Funny about money. I heard the Pleiadians declare 10 years ago that our economy is held up by a toothpick. It will take some very clever sleight of hand to replace the broken toothpick with a silver or gold toothpick that everyone believes in.
We are all being forced to manage our energy better and to place value where it is a realized need. Is the life of a small child worth more or less than say, an antique car priced at 500K? What is it that brings us well-being? A new car or a new love? What about diamonds? Most of these stones have spent their lives in a vault. Will they have value over say, a load of groceries for a hungry family? Or will expensive wine be worth more than a drink of water for a de-hydrated body?
When our forefathers purchased land from the natives who didn’t understand ownership of land for a handful of trinkets and a piece of paper with X’s on it, they set a precedent that still rings through our society. Does owning a piece land mean you are the caretaker of it, or just the one who fences it in to keep everyone else off? Is land alive, or is it just an investment? We are in for a great deal of change!
Here is another quote from a young writer, Christopher Opus: “If I spend too much time trying to have it all, I get depressed and anxious. Instead, I will focus on what I do have: a solid heart, fertile imagination, strong speaking skills, bundles of compassion and empathy, intelligence, health, a loving family, a vital romantic relationship, sweet friendships, lots of dreams and a warm place to rest my head at night. I have a car that works, a computer to connect to the world, respect from people I admire, support from my family, a fridge full of food, opportunity to make money, a clear conscience and a wise soul.”
With change already underway, I propose a telephone practice class about preparing our chakra system for fearless change, and our aura field to become our home. I call it “Chakra talk, with spinning.” The chakras are our inner computer files, and need to be updated. With the help of our “wise soul” giving its illumination on what has value for the quality of life within the self, perhaps we can assist each other with the creation of a happy home life, right here, right now. We will do some spinning out and spinning in. Consider this an opportunity to sit with some of my friends around the country and spin yourself a holy-day aura.
