This post has been rolling around in my brain for quite sometime, and I've now had several requests to write about it, including in the comments section of "Amazing Orgone."
The paragraphs that prompted the questions were:
I need to preface the rest of this article by reminding readers that I am not a nuclear expert, not a doctor, not a scientist, and the only Geiger counter I use is the energy reading mechanism that naturally exists within me.
Although I have clients and friends literally on every continent of this world, including in Hawaii, Taiwan, Australia and many on the US West Coast, statistically speaking, these people represent only a very tiny slice of the larger population.
I also need to note that my clients and friends tend to be much more conscious and aware than the average population. I do, however, also occasionally interact with people who don't even know what Fukushima is, who have no idea why we'd want to avoid GMO's or even what they are, who think "energy work" involves an electrician, and who live paycheck to paycheck from jobs that don't require them to think beyond the immediately pressing details of their lives.
The observations I present in this article include those people, as well, but I've obviously had greater opportunity for discussion and energy scans of clients and friends.
All of which is to say: take my observations however you will. I offer them here not as a definitive, provable conclusion, but rather in hopes that they may help people to live more fully, generously and healthily in these extremely challenging and exciting times.
Awareness about Fukushima radiation has begun to trickle into public consciousness, despite a near media blackout, quietly raised official levels of "safe" radiation, the turning off of West Coast radiation monitors, and a new Japanese law that criminalizes reporting about Fukushima.
In a sudden switch from the typical media silence, the LA Times recently urged its readers to stop eating Pacific seafood.
As a result of growing public alarm about dying, tumor-ridden, starved, ill and/or bleeding sea life off the West Coast, as well as individuals recording extremely high radiation levels via their own Geiger counters, local governments and news media, along with some internet articles have all tried to quell public outcry by assuring us that, though they're "baffled," and "mystified" by all these "inexplicable" things happening, they can certainly confirm that none of this has anything to do with Fukushima.
Cleverly, they don't say it has nothing to do with radiation, just "not from Fukushima."
The creepy part is that it may not matter. Does your body care if radiation comes from Japan or from illegal nuclear dumping off the US Coast? Does your body care if radiation leaks out from Japan or from the nuclear reactor or weapons dump closer to home?
We've had a nuclear waste issue in this country long before 3/11/11. Due to Fukushima concerns - which imho, are quite real - people have also begun to uncover invisible elephants closer to home. Instead of "either/or," think "both/and."
Having lived all along the Central and Northern California Coasts, in addition to the Oregon Coast and Seattle, I've been well aware of the pockets of cancer, particularly in Marin County, which has the highest breast cancer rates of anywhere in the nation. Marin is gorgeous, and I loved all the misty magic of that area, so I considered moving there until a friend told me to research breast cancer.
Sure enough, Marin County has 38% higher breast cancer rates than most of the US.
A regular at the various Cafe Gratitude organic raw food restaurants in Northern California, I always felt vaguely alarmed when I'd see a sign by a donation jar for one of their young, high vibe and organic-raw-food-eating staff in San Rafael undergoing breast cancer treatment.
As a Medical Intuitive, I know that many factors contribute to cancer, and extensive studies of Marin County have apparently revealed the same thing. No environmental toxin factors were discovered to account for the absurdly high rates of breast cancer.
On the other hand, I do recall reading a study that found clusters of breast cancer closer to water there.
I've shared Medical Intuitive Observations on Breast Health before, but I mention the Marin County situation because I've intuitively monitored it on occasion since 2008 when I began to formulate a wild theory about radiation and health as it relates to one's connection to place.
At that time, I did sense some kind of radioactive waste coming from somewhere, and I still do; however, I also sensed that some people - not me in this instance, but some - could live in that environment without developing cancer, so long as it was the right place for them to be.
I also noted (and I mean this as no offense to anyone living in Marin County) an odd disconnect between level of Consciousness and level of generosity.
Psychics, raw foodists, yoga teachers, channelers and self-proclaimed New Age guru's are a dime a dozen in Marin County, yet despite what you'd expect to be an atmosphere oozing health and joy, I often felt a palpable contraction of ego, competition and sadness in the air whenever I visited. The consumption of high vibe things was off the charts, but the practical offering of those gifts from high vibe living seemed disproportionately lacking.
From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked."
Until Fukushima happened, these observations and words just kind of floated around in the realm of curiosity and a possibly isolated scenario, but since Fukushima began dumping untold amounts of radiation into the air and ocean, I've noticed these factors becoming much more apparent and consistent.
Long ago, I received a message that human evolution would be triggered by a nuclear event. I thought maybe a war, but whenever I encounter someone undergoing radiation treatment or exposure to excessive radiation, I always remember that original message.
Radiation triggers mutations. It activates and accelerates potentials, both negative and positive.
In November 2013, I commented on Jon Rappoport's (possibly tongue in cheek?) poem, "Fukushima Man," which profiles "the one schmuck in fifty million who thrives on radiation":
What's frustrating for some of the people struggling with radiation symptoms is that by society's standards, they seem like people already sharing their gifts.
Only they - and people like me who can read their energy - know that they present only a fraction of the value they could offer to the world.
They wonder how cancer scares, hair loss, thyroid issues, etc. can be happening to them when they "have studied Reiki," "meditate" and "think positively" … when they try to live such a "high vibe life" and yet other people in their lives who have no interest in spirituality don't seem to have these sorts of problems.
When I ask if they're offering Reiki, teaching it, sharing their insights from meditation, actively generating positive actions from their positive thinking… I get a bunch of excuses for why,
This pattern involves all energy, including money, which is simply one of our most dysfunctional means of circulating energy into our environment.
People who handle large volumes of money need to be especially careful right now how that money passes through them. Do they use the energetic gifts at their disposal to transmute blood money from corrupt institutions into energy that promotes good in this world?
Do they invest their own money into generous healing and liberating projects for the Earth and/or their community? If not, then handling all that money energy becomes exponentially toxic to their system.
Ditto all the high vibe lifestyles that summon energy into the body, mind and spirit.
After that energy arrives, what happens to it? Cancer is incredibly creative energy. If someone summons massive amounts of energy and then refuses the call to create something positive beyond themselves, then that energy pools inside them and creates malignant, rapidly producing cancer cells.
"Pay it forward." The more you receive, the more evolution requires you to give. No, it's not fair, and no, you can't fake it. From the outside, someone can look highly generous, but inside themselves they know they're really not living and giving anywhere near their full potential.
This planet has reached crisis stage largely due to the selfish and oblivious actions of humanity. Consciousness can be taught to people with kind, generous hearts, but selfishness and people who consume as much or more than they return are an evolutionary liability. This trait of excessive consumption is a stronger evolutionary filter than what's consumed.
From an evolutionary standpoint, a gas guzzling redneck who offers everything he has to those in need will pass through easier than a New Age dabbler who collects training and certifications but fails to translate those gifts into tangible offerings to Earth or community.
The gas guzzler can be given a new car, but the spiritual energy guzzler who refuses to dirty themselves with nitty gritty compassionate action requires much more internal shifting.
Kindness counts, and radiation amplifies the internal effects of whether or not kindness creates positive things outside oneself or whether it ferments, festers and mutates inside.
The Universe does not demand everyone quit his or her day job to become a healer; evolution simply asks that people share what they can where they can, now, without excuses. Art counts. Platitudes don't.
If someone has the consciousness to recognize how deeply this planet and its various species are struggling and still continues to postpone action, then really … what will it take for change?!
If pondering the imminent extinction of life as we know it can't get that person over the ego concerns or fears of vibrant living and giving, then the greater creative wisdom of this planet will not likely view that person's particular genetic/spiritual mix as an evolutionary combo to carry forward.
The Original Instructions for humanity require us to live in balance with Nature and as caretakers.
From an evolutionary standpoint, people who recognize those Original Instructions and yet knowingly neglect or refuse to implement them, are part of the problem, not the solution they smugly consider themselves to be.
The other big factor, unrelated to generosity, but equally important in my observation, is how connected people are to place. When someone feels deeply connected to where they live, their energy interacts with the planet at that location, healing and evolving with the Earth.
Many people have felt led to move in recent years, sometimes to hot spots - radioactive or otherwise.
By tapping into our specific contract with the land, sea and sky, then we reconnect with the larger whole. Radiation becomes simply one of many, many factors, rather than an overwhelmingly detrimental one. As with generosity, though, we can't fake it.
We're either connected to where we live, or we would be wise to find some way to get wherever we do belong.
Those who lack the conscious awareness to know whether or not they belong somewhere or have a higher calling elsewhere won't feel the effects of misalignment as much as someone who knows better but refuses to act on the message.
Those who recognize the need of this planet and its various species, who know that Spirit supports right action and yet refuse to walk in Faith find themselves struggling right now. This is not a time for fence sitting or talking the talk without walking the walk.
I strongly recommend finding ways to connect with the land, sea and sky wherever you are and to ask for guidance and support in getting wherever you feel called to go.
What's the positive in all of this?
I cannot prove any of this, except as I've heard from various "talkers" recently that life has taken a sudden turn for the worse.
It seems to improve for them as they invest larger parts of themselves in the areas their heart and soul cry out to support. Whenever they pull back those energies they feel called to express, then the symptoms or life circumstances hammer them again.
The more energy someone summons, the greater the effect. The more exposure to radiation - from Fukushima or otherwise - the greater the effect.
People can shift their attitude and response to fear and tap into huge surges of power to move beyond perceived limitations.
Visionaries can tap into their local environment and thereby create a positive feedback loop of radiation and creativity. People can use these intense times to hone awareness of preferences or longings that well up deep from the soul.
This is not a time for repression; it's a time of increased awareness and compassion followed by creative action. Magick, art, volunteer work: whatever positive channels of expression feel right will experience extra juice and transmutation the more radiation we find ourselves exposed to.
And if I'm wrong, and all radiation is completely toxic and unavoidable? Well, then we're all Fuk'd and we might as well live in ways that invite and invoke miracles and a state of Grace.
"There are two ways to live:
you can live as if nothing is a miracle;
you can live as if everything is a miracle."
"Grace isn't a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal.
It's a way to live."
