Saving Our Rainforests – a Global Initiative

We’ve been aware of Chris Griscom and her work on the Global Rainforest Sites Heritage Initiative for years, and we think it really deserves our attention at this critical time. With recent reports of fires around the world, from California to Brazil and Indonesia, decimating thousands of acres of forest daily, it is more important than ever that we protect and conserve this resource. The Brazilian rainforest has been called “the lungs of the world,” but truly all trees everywhere fill this vital role.

Chris is a Global Spiritual Leader, Visionary and Advocate for Humanity.  Her life-long work has been to elevate human consciousness through conscious technology, advancing all mankind as global and cosmic citizens.  Currently, Ms. Griscom is leading the Global Warming and Conscious Solutions Initiative, (see video) a Global Initiative that utilizes the technologies of consciousness she has designed to re-balance the greenhouse gases and our atmosphere—restoring our Planet through global conscious intention.   Focusing on Human Potential and Global Responsibility, the immediate goal of the Global Warming Initiative is to bring together people from all walks of life, cultures and nations to discover that together we can find a greater purpose and direction for the human spirit.

Ms. Griscom began her work of human outreach in the diplomatic service of the Peace Corps, joining the first wave of volunteers to bridge the gaps of cross-cultural understanding and education in developing countries. Throughout a lifetime of work in the field, she has inspired and touched millions across the globe. She is the author of several books, including The Evolution of God, and Psychogenetics: the Force of Heredity.  Chris Griscom has founded several institutions that focus upon the uplifting of humanity and its role as guardians of our world: The Sanctuary of Light and The Nizhoni Institute for Global Consciousness, as well as the internationally acclaimed Light Institute of Galisteo.

The Dangers of 5G: The Price for Speed May Be Too High

We all love our technology – texting, streaming movies, playing our music – and we’ve grown addicted to high speeds and smooth transmission. In response to this, telecommunications companies worldwide, with the support of governments, are poised within the next two years to roll out the fifth-generation wireless network (5G). What is less known is what this leap may mean for our bodies and our environment. As Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal (video) highlighted in a recent Congressional hearing, there has been ZERO research from the industry, or the FDA. Worldwide, there have been some limited studies from concerned scientists, and the results are deeply troubling.

Las Vegas Taps into Solar Energy for Municipal Buildings

As reported in The Huffington Post and USA Today, last year Las Vegas became the latest U.S city to complete the switch over to solar power for its municipal buildings. Now that the final array of solar panels has gone online, Las Vegas can brag that all of the city buildings, parks, community centers and street lights are powered by renewable energy. At a news conference following the completion, Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman said proudly, “We can brag that the city, this city of Las Vegas, is one of the few cities in the entire world that can boast using all of its power from a green source.”

Navigating Your Future – Thoughts From the Wisdom Keepers by George Cappannelli

| by George Cappannelli

Those of us who weren’t born yesterday and haven’t been hanging out with Rip Van Winkle in Sleepy Hollow, know we are in a time unlike any before it. In addition to the many challenges we face – climate change, energy, education, healthcare, immigration, wealth inequality, gender and minority inequality to name a few — we are also in a demographic revolution that will, over the next several decades, result in 50% of our population here in the U.S and Canada and in every industrialized country in the world being over 50 for the first time in history. Increasing longevity, decreasing birth rates and shrinking tax base are just a few of the startling and relatively immediate implications this demographic revolution will have for those of us who are older GenXers, Boomers and Elders here in North America and billions more around the world.

Is There a Place for Geomancy Today? by Tim Walter

Geomancy is a bizarre and highly contentious approach to mental wellness and spiritual harmony. ‘Geomancy’ isn’t even the correct term for the work that people such as myself do. I said as much in one of my recent YouTube videos www.youtube.com/c/KnightsRose . There isn’t really a label that is ‘correct’ for this practice. We use ‘Geomancy’ as that is the closest label we have and most people recognise what is being identified with such a label. Given that modern Geomancy has no official structure, and what each geomancer provides their clients is different, is there really a place for Geomancy in our modern world?
