HARRY POTTER AND THE MATRIX HAVE TO TEACH YOU?
"At this critical point, it
is imperative we make the masses aware of this
global movement quickly.
This evolutionary phenomenon is broader and
deeper than the most visible
SHIFT, the environmental movement.
It involves our very understanding of
who we are as human beings,
and our responsibility to the world and to life
- The SHIFT movie
No longer hidden in "behind closed doors" discussions or in
small intimate groups, the great shift in consciousness and power that we are
experiencing on this planet is becoming more visible, more impacting, more
pervasive and more vital to understand. We can no longer ignore, pretend or
The new surge of awareness and awakening began this time
around with the birth of the Harry Potter series that has been part of
our lives now for more than 10 years. Engaging our hearts and minds in a
wonderful world of fantasy and fiction, it has been one of the fundamental
catalysts for awakening the collective consciousness. With tremendous
cross-generational appeal, people have been given the opportunity to triumph in
the victory over the dark forces and celebrate the power of one that can make
such a difference. It has been an essential message of hope that began to allow
people to make sense of what is going on in the world around them on a level
deeper than ever before.
Quickly following the initial Harry Potter release,
The Matrix series of movies began in 1999 carrying a very similar message
of light and hope with a delivery geared to the adult marketplace. The idea of
one person making a difference, transforming our world, the fight for freedom
from the oppression of dark and sinister forces, and the possibility of
triumphing to create a new world reality was a compelling story that jolted
many with its underlying truth.
The Matrix heightened our awareness that everything may
not be what it appears to be - that there is a certain illusion in our world.
With that, two themes began to emerge: Question Reality and Question Your
We are in the midst of challenge, change and transformation on
our planet. Harry Potter and The Matrix are brilliant and
inspiring stories of our Age and hold timeless wisdom that can help transform
our world and, most importantly, empower the people in it.
Harry Potter, the boy who discovers who he has been all along
- powerful, gifted, magical, destined for greatness. Magic in practice.
Miracles to be seen. One person willing to step up to the challenges of life
and take full responsibility. One person overcoming fear and all the limiting
beliefs he'd been raised on to take right and courageous action, speak the
truth, and not settle for what was just easy or convenient.
Neo, the everyday man leading a quiet life, who awakened to
the fact that he was more powerful than he could have ever imagined, willing to
see beyond the illusions he'd been conditioned to believe, and used his power
rightfully to overcome the seemingly formidable forces in control to shift the
reality of the world.
These are stories about our time. These are stories written
From Harry as "The Chosen One" to Neo as "The One", the moment
you wake up and claim your power in this world you become The One.
So the question is: Are you content to stay locked in the
cupboard under the stairs, playing it safe and small, refusing the invitation
that's been given to you? Are you willing to remain unconscious in a mindless
shell allowing others to feed off of you while you're simply running the
programs that someone else has prepared to entertain you?
Here's the real question: Are you ready to become The One?
I have been writing and speaking about the evolutionary shift
that we are going through on this planet for more than five and a half years
now. And along the way, I've become a self-help enthusiast. It's
all about helping yourself.
The truth is, it's up to you. You must help yourself. It's an
inside job. No one is doing it to you and no one is going to do it for you.
The power is already inside of you.
On a global level, it's up to you what lies ahead of us now.
Feast or famine, fear or freedom, prison or paradise, poverty or prosperity.
I invite you to join me in consciously creating the life you
love to live, to participate fully in bringing into reality peace, plenty,
prosperity, health, community, unity, wisdom, abundance, joy and love for all.
In the past I've introduced you to the Institute of Noetic
Sciences (IONS) founded by Edgar Mitchell, the pilot of Apollo 14, and joined
by a host of notable leaders to present information and research on the
evolution taking place on our planet. The IONS magazine is called Shift
and their membership program is called Shift In Action. For more

The SHIFT movie is now emerging to raise "awareness to
the story of our roles in an evolutionary shift in our collective
consciousness. As it chronicles the faces, the stories and leaders assisting in
this social transformation, the film reveals its emergence and meaning." To

So, the idea this month is Shift.
As a people, as a planet, we are all at a critical point of
time in our evolution. We are at the threshold of the dawning of a new era. And
you are an essential part.
You get to choose whether you will take the red pill or the
blue pill, in The Matrix terms, or whether you will be imperiused or
confunded in the words of Harry Potter, unconscious and asleep. As an
alternative, you can choose to be awake and to empower yourself and others in
this time of change.
Here are some steps you can take to prepare you, help you stay
stabile and secure, and move into this new era of prosperity and freedom:
1. Shift your physical environment. Donate, recycle, clean up,
and clear out. Create a sanctuary in your home that will be your refuge of
peace, calm and serenity, even if it's a corner or a shelf.
2. Shift any old beliefs or thought habits that no longer
serve or support you. As you shift your thoughts, words, feelings, beliefs,
visions and actions, you will be an essential part of shifting your reality,
community and the world. Stay awake. See beyond the illusions. Dare to dream

special offer on my
CDs for this month to get a direct connection to your subconscious for
3. Shift your relationships to ones that serve, support and
nurture you. Gather together with like-minded individuals. This is the time for
community and unity. Give yourself the gift of support, clarity, direction,
guidance, experience, strength and hope from someone who's been there. If you'd
like to have my personal support, I am available for consultations
4. Shift to develop or expand your daily spiritual practice
and stick with it. Meditation, mindfulness, prayer, guided imagery, whatever
feels right for you to connect with a higher consciousness. Do it.
5. Shift your focus, what you give emotional energy and
attention to, onto what you deeply desire. Ask, believe, open, and receive.
Create the life you love to live. If you don't know how to do that, I encourage
you to go back to read the archives of my past newsletters or find another
source that will guide you on the way. Use your powers to create a world for us
all - full of peace, love, joy, harmony, prosperity, compassion, abundance,
freedom, beauty and truth.
6. Get clear on who you choose to be in the world and then BE
it. BE The One and then come celebrate with me!
We all deserve it!
To your joyful, prosperous and loving shift,
