“5 June 2011: A New Community Is Born”
Posted on the Ready For The Shift Community Forums
For the past several weeks since the launch of Ready For The Shift (RFTS) in late March, Wendy and I have been developing our RFTS branding, linking everything to a few Twitter accounts, Facebook accounts and SEOs (Search Engine Optimizations). Wendy’s guides told her that she had to reach “hordes of people” with her writing. My guides told me that I was a healer and that my mission at this time is to heal through reducing fear, by counseling folks through and after the Ascension period. There will be a lot of people coming online in the near future, and many of us Lightworkers will help them through what seems shocking to them.
We knew that the blog would only be one modality to help us both reach the “hordes of people” our lives are supposed to touch. It’s pretty exciting, I have to tell you. The response to the blog has been way above expectations. We’re getting readers from all over the world! Several people said they stumbled upon the blog, not really looking for anything and were intrigued. Many say they enjoy it and anticipate the articles posted. Wendy is still amazed that anyone would say these things. I’m not surprised, I love her honest, heartfelt writing, but hey, I may be biased. The bottom line is that we are so happy to be of service! Feeling that we were not contributing much to society due to our health issues, our current work helps us feel that sense of accomplishment and we are so grateful to feel that “Wasn’t that an awesome day at work?” feeling. Finally, after all these years I can make this statement, “I Love My Job!” It’s the only job I’ve had where I didn’t draw a paycheck. Go figure.
After appearing as guests on Maarten Horst’s ET-First Contact BBS Radio Show, we decided to take RFTS beyond the blog. After Maarten’s show, several folks suggested that Wendy and I host our own internet talk radio show. After considering this, we decided to investigate further. I am now committed to this effort and have already lined up several guests who were excited to participate!
Shortly thereafter, several comments came in to Wendy’s blog which she answered, but she wished the comment could have been discussed in detail amongst all of the other posters who commented. In some cases, Wendy would respond further by e-mail. In a similar light, Wendy was asked by a reader if she would mind speaking with them on Skype to discuss Ascension, which of course she was happy to do. We thought, wouldn’t it be wonderful to include more folks in these discussions? We find both types coming to our site; seekers who are awakening at this time and elders who have been shining their Light for decades who would now be given yet another connection to share of themselves.
There are other safe havens and we are part of a couple of those communities. One of those very special places is Steve Beckow’s Yahoo Group, 2012Scenario, We thank Steve for giving us the gift of discernment of source material, for the courage to speak out with our hearts and the call to duty to spread the word and to spread the Light and Love of course. We went from a community of emerging Lightworkers to a community of bloggers, each of us spreading the messages of Ascension and Disclosure, far and wide with Steve’s encouragement. There are other wonderful discussion forums that are available such as the Yahoo Group Share11 as well as Starseeds.net. We need more of these places. Some of the new friends I’ve made in these communities feel more like family than friends! I thought we really could use more of these hubs, hang outs, safe havens – you know, places to ask questions and discuss our awakening without being laughed at or where someone would put us down for our beliefs. I committed to building one of these safe havens with my own hands as part of my service to humankind and to aid in our survival as the loving light-filled beings that we all are.
Originally, Wendy and I were going to blog together. Then we were going to have our own blogs, mine focusing on free energy and propulsion systems as well as holistic medical discoveries. I still may do that if the confidence in my writing increases. The problem is, I have never seen myself as a writer. Most of my communication is done verbally, and for me, a more spontaneous medium like speaking works better for me. I feel that when I write, I spend too much time tweaking and wonder if my spoken words were able to express what I feel better than what I can get across in my writing. I can’t seem to write with passion, but I sure can speak with passion!
I know I keep saying “our site” and “our blog” when all the writing is Wendy’s. However I am working behind the scenes. I am helping Wendy with researching background info for some of her articles. I chose our new internet host (have you noticed how fast the blog site is now?) and helped Wendy through the grueling process of moving the site over to the new host from WordPress. But now I finally feel I am able to contribute using the skills that I have learned. I’ve built, maintained and moderated several forums, secular and non-secular, as well as built and maintained web sites over the past 15 years and I am so happy that I have had those experiences. The way I see it, this was in-training for building this forum for all of us and I feel blessed with this opportunity to assist others in their emergence!
Although I majored in Biology, I minored in Communications and have done both commercial radio voice-overs and TV work, both on camera and behind the scenes as a camera operator, technical director and floor director. I was the lead singer in several local Philly bands from the mid 70s through early 90s and co owned the now defunct indie record label, Primal Instinx Recording Corporation, which lead me to building a recording studio in our house. I saw all of my cards laid out before me…medical training I needed as a healer, a technical background in which to create our voice on the web, a background in communications for the radio work and a home recording studio that can be used to host our internet radio talk show. I have been well prepared for this job. I have always wondered where all these experiences would lead me. How completely blessed am I. Sometimes I don’t feel worthy. (Getting rid of this ego is the hardest thing I’ve ever attempted!!)
After discussing this forum idea with Wendy, I started creating. After several weeks of deciding on the forum type, template, structure, content and visual style, I finally finished and Wendy announced the forum going live on RFTS this morning (5 June 2011) at 11:11AM. I’m still tweaking things here and there and eventually will have all of the articles posted on our blog, here on the forum for discussion purposes. That should be done soon. After that it’s time to format the radio show, find an internet radio provider to produce the show, perform a few test shows and gather more special guests. Just to let you know, I am pleased to announce that Dr. Carol Rosin, author of the Peace in Space Treaty (http://www.peaceinspace.com/), Andrew Basiago, former DARPA Project Pegasus Time Travel participant (http://www.projectpegasus.net/) and Rob Schwartz, author of “Your Soul’s Plan: Discovering The Real Meaning Of The Life You Planned Before You Were Born” (http://www.yoursoulsplan.com/) to name a few, have all agreed to be our special guests this Summer (2011) on the RFTS Talk Radio Show! So far, everyone I’ve requested interviews with, that has replied, has agreed to join us! It is all falling into place. Isn’t this creation stuff a blast?!
So you noticed that 11:11 did you? I’ve been looking at the clock and seeing 11:11 for years now. If you’re not familiar with Doreen Virtue’s Angel Numbers, you may or may not be surprised to know that 11:11 actually has a meaning.
Per a recent piece Wendy posted on Doreen Virtue, Ms. Virtue states:
Your angels often communicate messages to you by showing you sequences of numbers. They do this in two ways. First, they subtly whisper in your ear so you’ll look up in time to notice the clock’s time or a phone number on a billboard. The angels hope you’ll be aware that you’re seeing this same number sequence repeatedly. For instance, you may frequently see the number sequence 111, and it seems every time you look at a clock the time reads 1:11 or 11:11.
The second way in which angels show you meaningful number sequences is by physically arranging for, say, a car to drive in front of you that has a specific license plate number they want you to see. Those who are aware of this phenomenon become adept at reading the meaning of various license plates. In this way, the angels will actually give you detailed messages. Here are the basic meanings of various number sequences. However, your own angels will tell you if your situation holds a different meaning for you. Ask your angels, “What are you trying to tell me?” and they’ll happily give you additional information to help decode their numeric meanings.
And finally, Doreen tells us what that sequence of “ones” means in regard to Angel Numbers:
111 – Monitor your thoughts carefully, and be sure to only think about what you want, not what you don’t want. This sequence is a sign that there is a gate of opportunity opening up, and your thoughts are manifesting into form at record speeds. The 111 is like the bright light of a flash bulb. It means the universe has just taken a snapshot of your thoughts and is manifesting them into form. Are you pleased with what thoughts the universe has captured? If not, correct your thoughts (ask your angels to help you with this if you have difficulty controlling or monitoring your thoughts).
Having done a little research in Numerology, I have learned that when looking at a date, you add the day and month together. June 5th would be 6 + 5 = 11. Normally, you would add double digits together. Since 11 is a Master Number, we do not. That was a decision Wendy and I made a couple of days ago. We decided to go with the Angels and launch this forum on a Master Number 11 Month/Day, 2011 at 11:11AM. They say timing is everything, right? We do have one request of each member. Will you help us to nurture this new-born community?
I now ask all Angels, Archangels, Ascended Masters and Spirit Guides, who are only interested in our highest good, to guide our hearts as we assist each other through this glorious and wonderful emergence into Enlightenment and Ascension. We ask that you guide our hands as we share our thoughts and give assistance to others. Archangel Michael, I ask that you guard this community and ensure that it is a safe harbor, and to protect us by helping us to only attract members that will not negatively impact this community of Loving Lightworkers. Amen. Aum. So Be It.
