No Fear! I loved this clothing line when I was young. It was launched in the late 80’s by a race car driver and his motorcyclist friend. I used to go to the skate shop to buy these new threads giving my mother anxiety over how much money she would be spending on the name brand. Life in the privileged lane. All four of my sons seems to have a shirt or two of this brand at the moment, although, to the life of me, I don’t know where the clothes are coming from as malls, skate shops, and shopping are a distant blur from a past life completed many, many years ago. On my small island that I call home, consumerism doesn’t exist. How can it? Our tourist season ended over a month ago and for most people, no one has earned over $100.00us. No Fear: that’s how we live!
In a society with no money, I do feel rich beyond measure though. My friends came to visit from the states. One of them was celebrating his birthday so we loaded up the party boat and headed out for an island cruise. We weren’t ten minutes into our journey when a pod of dolphins started to circle. They stayed with us for a half hour or so entertaining everyone, after all, a dolphin sighting is still high magic. When they were ready to depart, four of the dolphins synchronized a jump out of the water as if to say, “happy birthday”! Later, our fisherman caught a lovely huge tuna. Tuna is not a daily catch but an exception… tuna tar-tar, tuna sushi and tuna salad. I love tuna and I guess, in all honesty, I am still living the privileged life, with no money to speak of.
Tropical depression/storm Matthew recently passed through our waters. Again, for the second time this year, the masses fled in panic, in fear. Meanwhile, I had the most beautiful days of my life on this island. With not a tourist to be found and with so many locals missing, I had a tropical island in the Caribbean to myself where the cloud formations, the sea, the trees and all nature danced to my tune. As if Spirit wanted to confirm that I had made a good decision to stay at home, a magnificent rainbow adorned the sky and I happily swam under the colours.
I was accused of coming from fear in my last article… I have lived my entire existence in and for the light, this has required that I live on the abyss at times, jumping into the unknown without fear of results, speaking my truth without fear of repercussions. I know of no other way to be. At this time, the mists are parting which is making everyone so nervous, fearful. Systems are crashing, money is disappearing, ecological systems are failing. There is an impending doom that no one can quite explain but deep instinct has all of us on hyper-alert. I know that is why everyone in my neck of the woods fled for a tropical depression; fear, fear, fear is everywhere. And yet, I can’t help but feel what is there to fear?
As each day of my life becomes more gorgeous than the next…I understand the game plan, or better said, the lack of it. *Live in the moment- that’s all we have! *Make sure your instincts are razor sharp- you will need them, honor them! *Have impeccability- nothing less will do! *Communicate without words, learn to read the energy- it’s crucial! *And have fun, this is a game, remember, all one must do is play! I guess I am in the new world, it just took a moment to catch my bearings…

MESSAGE TO THE LIGHTWALKERS
From Medicine Chief of the Star Clans of Turtle Island
(“The Medicine Chiefs are the Spirit of the People,” Pezuta Itancan, MAKA WICAHPI WICOHAN.)
“It is the time to be prepared.”
“There is a darkness… that is fear.
You, who have walked the Path of Light, have talked to many.
Those who have walked in darkness come to you seeking the Light.
You have given them the Word, but they pretended to be deaf even as you spoke ―
louder, stronger, stronger with much Love in your Heart ―
they still refused to let go of the dark and walk a Path of Light.”
“The time of wasting time is now finished.
The Light Walkers are to prepare themselves for the next step.
The Light Walkers feel the darkness pulling, pulling them down,
pulling them away from the Light Path.”
“Light Walkers, prepare yourselves for the next mission.
You will walk beyond the darkness of those who refuse to serve the Light.
You must walk away from those who refuse to see Truth,
to accept Truth within their hearts.”
“Light Walker, it is time to continue forward upon your Path.
The Circle comes together.
You are to be part of it.
All Light Walkers are part of it, have always been part of it.
In the darkness, there is nothing but fear
The People are coming to you bringing the darkness of their fear.
You must walk away.
Unless your heart tells you that this one is ‘sacred’,
a sacred Light Walker that needs to see,
“Those that continue to walk a path of dark will have to walk alone towards the Light.
The time of guiding others by the hand is coming to an end.
For, even the Children see the Light Path and have their feet upon it.
No one needed show them The Way.
They are guided by their heart and the Truth that has always been before them.”
“The Circle continues to take on more and more solid form which all will see.
The New Earth is upon us.
The Mother is preparing herself.
She is healing.
She longs for the day that the Circle will bring the Light Energy directly to Her Heart.
She is ready for Her Transformation.”
“You are never alone.
We are beside you,
We are before you, and
We are behind you,
protecting you as you go.
Look to the Heavens and know there is great help there.
The greatest guidance comes from the Stars.”
“Although We love all mankind,
We are saddened by some of their choices.
It saddens us to let so many go, but the choice was theirs.
We see the sadness of the Light Walkers,
the Tears when they leave a loved one behind.”
“Call upon us for Strength to help you.
We give you this message so you will understand:
You are LOVE.
You are LOVED.”
“There is always help.
When you reach up,
when you call on us,
We are already there.
We have Strong Hearts.
We have Strong Arms.
Feel our loving energy around you.”
“Some think we do not care, but We do.
Listen to your heart.
We are there.
We see the struggles.
We see the weariness.
“Although your preparation has been long and difficult,
We are sending Strength and Guidance to help you prepare even more.”
“No one is ever forgotten.
Remember, always, always remember:
We are here.
We have answers.
All We have and All We are is yours.”
“When in doubt,
Open your Heart.
The answer will come.
We have many messengers.
Each one has the ability to Hear our Words.
We talk to everyone.
Some just listen better than others.”
“Your Path is not as long as it used to be, so be Joyous.
The Circle gets brighter.
The Gold is in sight.”
And, Speak the Truth.”
“O sa da dv.
All is well.
All is as it should be.
All is as it is.”
