Abortion - are we going back to the 60-ies?

A lot of people in new age circles claim you should not watch the news because of bad vibrations. I prefer to be informed and I think we have seen some very interesting new developments in just the last couple of days.
First of all of course the wonderful nomination of Barack Obama as first mixed race presidential candidate, but also the surprising choice of McCain for running mate Sarah Palin is very interesting.

One of the things that I would like to "zoom in" on regarding the choice for Palin, is that she is anti-abortion. In itself this is contradicting the often voiced opinion of less government interference. What is more intrusive then a government telling you whether or not you can have a baby??! And thinking of this: how unusual to assume this is going to attract the voters who would otherwise have chosen for Hillary Clinton?

I grew up in the sixties. The time when women all over were fighting for their rights and one of those rights was to determine for themselves what was happening in their own bellies. I knew for sure that I did not want to have children when I was fourteen. I had to wait till I was 24 before I found a doctor willing to do a sterilization (because I supposedly was too young for such a decision and of course all doctors were men ... ). I knew that if I would accidentally get pregnant I could not get myself to have an abortion ... An abortion is always a last resort and I cannot imagine any woman doing this for fun. So as a society we should offer a loving embrace to the women who have to go through this. After all they are the life that is already here - and isn't this about protecting life? I believe an unwanted pregnancy can happen to any woman and of course the recent Bush policies have increased the risk for young women considerably. Let's be compassionate!

Now what does the picture look like from the child's point of view?
In the case the child is born:
I think many of us know the experience of not being wanted - and does it hurt! It oftentimes takes a life of therapy to heal from this and of course if not attended goes into the higher crime rates ... just imagine the resentment, anger and feelings of rejection a child who was not wanted may carry.
What happens for the child when there is an abortion?
There are several spiritual mediums who have written about this and I get the impression that it is very different in each situation and that the soul who is sent back after the pregnancy gets broken off, can get a learning experience from this as well. The overall impression is one of forgiveness. Mind you, the real entrance of the soul in the body is only later in pregnancy, the times given are not consistent, but tend to hover around 88 days before birth.

What is also completely ignored in this whole discussion is the situation of the planet at this moment. Our species is infesting the planet to a point of suffocation. A reason to seriously think about putting more people on this earth. But also this is a choice that everyone has to make for themselves.
Also awareness about what it might mean for your own life or that of the child is a factor to take into consideration. I wonder for instance what the obviously very ambitious Sarah Palin was thinking when she put 5 children on this earth and she now thinks she can also be president of the country? How will her children experience that? Apparently she has the financial means to have somebody else take care of her (disabled) children, a choice that many of the women over whose life she may decide do not have.

For those of us who are lucky enough to be able to vote: you have a job here!

And for the rest of us: I guess we just pray that Obama gets into the White House ...

Sacré Coeur

Have you always wanted to visit a certain place, but it never quite seemed to manifest? Recently I have had feedback from several people that I did a personal Reconnection for who reported they suddenly got it all going! Out of the blue the solutions that enabled them to make that journey seemed to all at once arrive at their doorstep!

Since I had my personal Reconnection it seems like I am being called to visit some powerful ley lines and crossings of lines.
This time it was Paris, Notre Dame and Sacré Coeur. I did not have a clue what I needed to do there, or what was waiting there for me, but had a strong calling to visit those two churches. Since it was my birthday last Sunday, I thought it would make a very nice present for myself and off I went ...
It started on Saturday early in the morning in the Notre Dame, I have been there at least once before, and did not have any specific recollection, but this time was just so different. I could feel the presence of many many angels and felt so extremely peaceful ... I spent several hours there. Those of you who read my story about
the Prophets Conference in Glastonbury a few weeks ago, will remember that I wrote about the orbs. I had never had them on a picture before, but to my surprise, after I watched my pictures of the Notre Dame two of them were crowded with orbs!

When somebody I met proposed a visit to the Sacré Coeur on Saturday night, I was getting a bit worried about my being such a party animal: visiting all those churches! :-) But I went along, and although I have been at least twice at the Sacré Coeur in my life, I was in for a new experience once again. It turned out that there was just a mass starting and my companion said he wanted to hear a specific woman sing. I normally don't really care for singing in the church, though I like the organ. But this was just out of this world ... Energy levels were going through the roof and meantime I just could not keep my eyes off the painting on the ceiling: Jesus with his arms spread, like he was flying, and at the same time blessing ... it was indeed the sacred heart ...
It feels like these places on the planet are being connected in new ways. In Amsterdam there is also a church with a very high vibration, near the Koningsplein, the Krijtberg it is called. Old churches and especially cathedrals are known to oftentimes stand on ley lines.

Art and copyright

With respect to art, I was planning on going to the Louvre, but in the end did not get round to going there. The closest I got was looking at Le Chat Noir at the bouquinistes and also a very cute version with
Knor with a very smug face as Mona Lisa ... that was just hilarious ... :-)
Today I just found out about the
Orphan law in the US. If you are an artist and have not heard of it before, make sure to sign a petition if you like to keep your copyright. Also about copyright: there is now software to blow up your images and if that is not enough yet, also the printing resolutions are lowering rapidly: 100 dpi is now enough to print a sharp image. I have been looking into this today since a Dutch art site was asking to put large images without any protection online, so that viewers can see your work better ... yes ... and just download and print it ...

Tax scam

With inflation being sky high (the real inflation is much higher than the governments want us to believe; they leave out the items that are rising in price most for their calculations), it is clear for everyone with basic education that the sales tax then also generates a huge increase in revenues for the government. It seems like at least in the Netherlands the government is deliberately misleading the public and complaining about a shortage now that they can't raise sales tax to 20%. Since journalists are either part of the complot or have not finished their primary school successfully, they buy into this. Don't let yourself be fooled! And realize too that with that they also get more power ...

Healing the "inner masculine"

Lately I have seen a lot of healers and websites pay attention to the "inner female" and the divine feminine and how that needs to be restored after such a long time of a patriarchal hierarchy in our societies.
OK, I can see that. What I also see however, is a desperate need to heal the "inner masculine" in order to be able to bring them into balance together again. What I see in a lot of women is that they express their masculine side as they see men behave in the outer world these days. Hence politicians like Hillary Clinton, who talk like men in the disguise of a woman's body. As a woman, it is imperative to express the masculine as woman. For women that would be as being "your own woman", a new and natural way. A way that supports a deeper feminine core and creativity in the outside world, without being aggressive or revert to mannerism.

For men it is also obvious that the "inner masculine" is in dire need for healing. We can see that in the way men dress for instance. A rope around the neck? Who ever invented that one? And all these young men losing their lives in the battles of old men ...

What would that look like in daily life if all masculine energy would be healed? I get visions of a peaceful world, where men and women support each other and conflicts of interest are being resolved in wisdom ...
According to
Nanco Nieling we are now in such a high vibration that we can heal our galactic karma and thus would be able to heal those parts that have been unresponsive to all our previous healing efforts.
As far as I can see, the healing of inner masculine and feminine and the balance between those resorts under a bigger galactic karma and should now be accessible to healing.
I found some methods to deal with this and am working on more ways.
If participants in the
September group healings that I offer in Amsterdam are interested, this could be one of the topics to work on.

Knor! :-)

The word "Knor" ("k" pronounced as in "kitchen") stands for the inner light, whether it be in humans, spirit guides or the embodiment of felines. Originally knors are from Sirius, where two races of beings were living together (more about this in the book by Murray Hope, the Sirius connection).

In my own life Knor appeared when I was in a very depressive phase of my life in 2000. I finally decided to force myself to write a children's book. It was about a witch ... and you guess it already: witches have cats! So soon enough the cat took over center stage and I found myself in stitches all the time because of the funny things the cat was doing ... needless to say: gone was the depression!

This is also a very fundamental aspect of how Knor works: it brings out the inner light! :-)
Yesterday I went for a walk through the Jordaan in Amsterdam with a good friend. I stop at every knor I see and usually when I call "knorretje" they come running, tail in the air! :-)
And just as I thought my friend was getting fed up with me and my happy knor-encounters, she told me a very remarkable story.
She is a teacher and now has a new group of 4 year old children. The children are upset and crying because they have to go to school for the first time. My friend said she was teaching the children about knors (she literally uses the word knor, and the meaning of the word is immediately understood by the children). She said they were imagining being a knor: stretching lazily, licking their "paws", being aware of the soft cushions underneath their feet and softly sneaking through the classroom ... purring ... :-) (Did you know that the sound of purring in itself is healing?)
All children were calm and peaceful afterwards ...

Ley lines and California poppies

I'm finally getting round to working with some of the pictures that I took during my time in San Francisco. My roommate was passionate about flowers and I thankfully took shots of his many stunning flower compositions. The California poppies were definitely favorites! I wanted to bring more depth and contrast to my picture and here you can see what it now looks like ... Enjoy the flowers on your path!

Meantime I am working with some organizations of trade shows to see if I can be on a couple of shows for the fall. As inflation is on the rise it is nice to be able to offer affordable healings and an opportunity to experience Reconnective Healing in an easy way ... The information about this will appear on my websites,
http://www.annevis.com/ and http://www.annevis.nl/.

If you already had your personal Reconnection, or are considering one, you may also be interested in finding out what is known about the earth grid in which you get "plugged into".
I think the ley lines is just part of this system, but a very fascinating part. Ever since my Reconnection, I feel drawn to go to certain places on these grids and I assume that is reinforcing the connection. The Reconnection definitely changes your relationship with the planet, making it more profound ... I found an
interesting site with tons of information about ley lines and much more, be sure to check it out! :-)

New Age vs. Police state

I haven't been to the gym in a long time, so when I got there the other day, I was in for a surprise.
Not only had the prices gone up by 50%, but also the training times had been diminished and now (worrisome!) you can only join if you allow this company to automatically subtract the money they want from your bank account.
I have found that other gyms in Amsterdam do the same crap. Worse: not only the gyms, but as I was looking for a new host for my Dutch language website, I found they also have such crooked policies. Even to the point where you have to consent that they don't have to abide with Dutch law! Talking about violating consumers rights!
The website
Niburu posted an article about the prices of diesel in the rest of the world ... which shows you how our government steals from the citizens ...
The attitude of the people is usually grumpy, but the frustrations turn inside and nothing happens, companies and government can get away with unethical behavior. The vision of New Age is that you create your own reality, so it's all your own fault and you can only do something about it by visualizing a brilliant life with decent governments and companies.
I just don't think that the world changes just by visualizing another reality. Yes, you need to change your own vibration, but that is easier said than done, as most of it is determined by unconscious factors.
Apart from working on raising your energy vibrations, there are other things to do.
In the Netherlands the NMA is an organization that is working on fair competition between companies, which is against deals that give the clients an unfair disadvantage. So far my experience with them has been excellent, they have even contacted corrupt companies on my behalf (after which there was a swift change in policy!). I recommend to contact NMA if you are fed up with companies plundering your bank account at their whims and such ...

Another thing that helps is making people aware of what is going on. To my astonishment I find a lot of people whom I thought were reasonably intelligent, still voicing such strange visions about the world we live in.
If you want to know what is really going on, I recommend checking the alternative news sites regularly. The regular media want to push it off as just "conspiracy theories", but of course they were also the ones who supposedly knew all about the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq (which I hope we all know was a blatant lie). Check your sources! The latest excellent documentation about what is really going on behind the scenes is the research by
Bollyn. I found it yesterday and think it is a must-read. Spirituality is not something somewhere up on a cloud, but it means we are responsible.

On a lighter note: I created an entire
series of buttons for my Cafepress store, a lot of fun to do! Nice as a gift or to brighten up your outfit! :-)
