Radiohead is playing “15 Step” with the USC marching band. I’ve been told it’s okay to talk about this now, and how I wish all of you could have been here at Staples with me this morning to watch Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, and three dozen elated college kids take an already very good song and turn it into a jubilant, slightly menacing masterpiece.
When I walked in at 9 a.m., there were already tubas glinting under the shiny, American Idol-style metal gridwork of the space stage, the thunder of the rhythm section bouncing around like buckshot. They did a rough run-through with crew and directors clustered on stage, after which Yorke politely asked, “Can you make my voice sound a little less shiny? I like the idea that I’ve got to belt it out over these guys, you see.” Between takes, he beatboxed a bit into the mic; the band kids sat on the risers and mostly just grinned in disbelief. Yorke wandered down to the lip of the orchestra pit and asked a nearby stage manager, “Is it okay if I stand here?” Sure, said the guy, “but just so you know” — he gestured to the floor beneath Thom’s feet — “this is a wall that comes out of the ground.” Thom took a step back. “All right! Here we go! Standby!” said another stage manager, and the wall did indeed come up. The band members stirred with excitement. The wall had lowered again to reveal Thom making a my-head-is-exploding gesture to Johnny, I assume because even Thom Yorke still gets jazzed about the Grammys. And then a snare drummer in the front row counted things off, the bass players raised their sticks, and the awesomeness began.
Mad props to the USC kids for their talent and their stylish choreography, but mostly for being totally professional in a situation that would have reduced many grown men to pudding. Their directors just finished making tweaks to the musical arrangement last night, and tomorrow they’ll be playing with arguably the best band in the world on national TV, yet they completed take after take of the complicated rhythms with incredible poise. “Ecstatic” is how 19 year old Kelsey Anderson (communications major; bass drum) summed up the feeling of getting this gig. Her eyes had the slightly glassy look you see in people who have recently experienced a religious conversion, or seen the face of God. “I went out and bought In Rainbows on vinyl for Thom to sign. He wrote my name on it. I’m gonna keep it forever.” She was highly complimentary of the spiky-haired frontman, with whom they apparently had robot dance-offs in rehearsal. “He’s surprisingly down to earth, fun, and amazing to work with,” Anderson said. “Some people you think might have big egos, but he doesn’t. We we were just in awe of him.” As for whether her life has now peaked at 19, she laughed and said, “This is pretty much the coolest thing I’ve done so far.”

Alberta could create more than 145,000 jobs by investing more heavily in renewable energy, energy efficiency and public transit, a report by three environmental organizations says.
The move would boost employment when oil prices have dropped, reduce carbon emissions and help shift the economy toward green industries, according to the report released Friday by Greenpeace, the Alberta Green Economy Network and Gridworks Energy Group.
“The government can start putting people back to work without having to wait for the price of oil to go back up,” co-author David Thompson said Friday, which was also Earth Day.
Crystal Grid used in my spacial cleansing today. I’ll continue to let it sit for a while 💞 : Quartz, Selenite, Blue Kyanite, Amethyst, Amber Calcite, Tigers Eye, Green Calcite
Of course my canine companion started going CRAZY the instant I laid out the crystals, followed me around during the cleansing, and is now curled up fast asleep since she wore herself out. What a blessing ☺️🐶❤️
Flavio’s sense of fashion and choice of lifestyle did not come cheap. That was a fact of life. He was also smarter than most gave him credit for, and not above playing dirty.
Possibly not the best of reasons to turn to a life of crime, but there you go.
And it wasn’t like he wasn’t good at it, especially after Santiago, a grumpy Spaniard who grew up with lawlessness, was somehow persuaded to join him.
(Yes. That persuasion was sex, and lots of it.)
It just so happened that the National Museum had some wonderful jewels on loan from another country.
Nice, sparkly jewels that would fetch a pretty price on the market.
Only one problem: the security.
Due to the value of these jewels, security was pretty tight. Not, Flavio mused to himself, that that was necessarily a bad thing.
“I had no idea you could move like that, Santi.” His eyes shamelessly roved over his lover’s body. “Your ass looks fantastic from this angle.”
Santiago turned his head and glared at him.
“No, no. Keep going~” He smirked, letting a slow lascivious smile stretch across his lips.
The Spaniard growled, deep in his throat, and carefully lifted his leg over one of the laser beams.
“Why didn’t I already know you were this strong? And flexible. You know you can’t get out of using this next time we fuck, right?” The blond’s voice sounded far too chipper, and entirely too pleased with himself. Like he knew something his partner in crime didn’t.
“Ooh, can you stand like that when we do it? Maybe up against a wall.”
Santiago had to tell himself exactly how counterproductive and childish it would be to throw something at Flavio. The last thing he wanted was to trip one of these lasers, especially as they weren’t sure what all of them did.
He finally set his feet down with a relieved puff of breath on the other side of the grid. Now he could pay back the irritating commentary in full.
Then again, maybe not. Knowing Flavio, that little shit would only enjoy it.
At the very least, he could watch him strain to follow the same path.
With a wide, self-satisfied from the Italian, there was a click and the narrow beams crossing between them flickered out.
“Are you fucking kidding?”
Flavio sauntered over, that smirk still shamelessly in place. “Can you blame me~? I’m such a naughty boy after all~”
Welcoming the Third Wave by Sandra Walter, September 20th, 2016
Blessings Beloved Light Tribe,
Our third wave of 2016 is beginning to crest, with its initial frequencies heralding the New. Gatekeepers and Gridworkers have been busy for weeks, Gaia and the new grids are responding already, and we are prepared for the new arrival next week.
This is an influx of highly charged pure light which takes us to a brand new level. As always, vibrational match is key to your experience of it, however these frequencies are aimed at assisting an accelerated timeline. For the Ascension Tribe, the veils are thinning again and our realities feel more surreal than grounded. As we have learned from the two earlier waves, that is typical for these wave influxes this year. This one involves a timeline shift, so our focus is needed more than ever.
Gaia is, and will be, continually releasing codes through the new grid systems which are of a Solar-crystalline nature. It is triggered by the incoming light level, and Gaia responds to it just as our bodies and DNA are triggered to activate dormant codes during Ascension. This is preparation to receive much higher levels of Solar light. The September wave is a big jump in that process, and we are receiving an accelerated timeline to compliment that process, simply because we are capable and consciously requesting it.
It is the task of Gatekeepers, Gridworkers, Wayshowers and any Lightworker in Service to welcome this new light with humility, integrity and the Divine Love which it deserves. This level of light is a Divine gift to HUmanity. The groundwork has been laid and the Gateways have been opened for a brand-new experience; a leveling up of the Ascension process. It may not be apparent to the collective; the external realties are a terrible compass for what is actually happening, Beloveds. This passage was always meant to have many distractions and triggers; realize that can be as merciful as it is manipulative. Some vessels are not wired for change, some are meant to loop in a reality until its extinction. Take note that is not the responsibility of the Light Tribe to monitor, watch or participate in the dissolvement of old realities. Focus on the divinity, purity and new experiences available to you in this now moment, and the acceleration will greatly assist your progress.
Experiencing the Accelerated Timeline
This passage of Revelation allows your unique skills to step forth. This is a moment to be creative and free your heart as the old energies which restrained creative endeavors, creative thought, and unique expression drop away. It is also important to honor each other’s intuitive guidance with the changes happening within you. Some of you are veil-lifters and have the ability to assist others in seeing this new reality clearly. Some of you are natural gridworkers and have not explored that aspect. Some of you desire to create new ceremony or gatherings and have not done this. As uncomplimentary timelines collapse, the old light constraints about spiritual expression no longer apply.
Most notable will be a tremendous expansion within the heart center. As the crystalline structures activate within your body, their vibration can begin to match the incoming photonic frequencies. This prepares the physical vessel to transform itself into a conduit for the Christed Self. This is why many of you have been guided to let go of anything unnecessary. The Christ (Crystalline consciousness, Unity consciousness) has very different preoccupations than the lower Self. It functions as Oneness. During these transformational phases, it needs your attention.
Revelation, Revelation, Revelation
There are so many beautiful surprises and revelations available to you, Beloveds. Watch your response to the unfoldments as they present. Welcome every change, every shift, every revelation, every disclosure with your higher wisdom. Our collective and individual realties are very complex metaphors, and highly creative. Appreciate what Source has created with this particular brand of Ascension experience. See all of this from the cosmic perspective; the timeless immortal perspective of what is occurring on this planet. Entanglement with the lower realities, judgment, or attachments to beliefs of the old Self cause pronounced mental, emotional and physical issues as the light increases. Embrace responsible creation through higher choices. Fill your hearts with joy and gratitude that these new realities have been designed on your behalf and are now readily available for you to experience. Many Gateways are being opened as others close; keep moving forward.
Personal Note from Sandra
I AM filled with humble gratitude to experience this beautiful leveling up and final Gatework as these waves of light enter our consciousness. Solar and Gaia Gateways will be opened on Equinox and the crest of the wave arrives September 26, extending through the 30th. This is a purer crystalline-based frequency which is aimed at consciousness shifts. Remember this even as your physical realities begin to feel somewhat surreal, and the body adjusts to keep up. Our visions and councils are reflecting this influx already; everything is aligning in Divine perfection. Keep your focus on this intention. We Love You, We Bless You, We Thank You.
I will be focused on Gatekeeping through September 30. Join us for the Wednesday Unity Meditations to assist Christ consciousness activations though the HUman heart grid. Thank you in advance for co-creating this acceleration of our Ascension. Have a blessed Equinox and may all hearts open to this sacred and profound wave of Divine Light!
In Love, Light and Service,Sandra
