SERIES OF ARTICLES IS INSPIRED BY my previous series,
“The Star Children”. In those writings, I vividly describe
some powerful characteristics of a new breed of young people,
a powerful force that is coming onto the planet. I also said,
in a number of different ways: “Our Star Kids are confused
and in turmoil today. The current construct of our society
leaves no room for them to come into their power, so they can
show us the fantastic alternatives for living they are
bringing to us from Spirit."
have asked me, after reading that material: “How can we
help? What can we do to assist these gifted kids, so they can
open the minds of the world to what truly dynamic living is
answer to that question varies with each individual. Everyone
has different support that he or she can give to these young
folks. At the core of this transfer process is a concept
called “authority”. People cannot act in society today
without authority. If someone does - if a person begins
generating energy or building societal structures that are
independent of the mainstream, he or she will be treated as a
Star Children to gain influence, and actually begin affecting
the way we all see life and make decisions, they will need to
be given some of our authority. Slowly, this is beginning to
happen. Thanks to the efforts of writers and researchers like
Steve Rother, Lee Carroll, and James Twyman, Star Children (or
whatever they are being called) are gaining an audience. They
are beginning to be heard.
For 18 years, I have earned a living as a Rehab Bodyworker. I have
literally spent my days touching people, helping them heal.
When I entered the field of Medical Massage Therapy, back in
the early 1980s, the profession was fighting to gain
recognition and momentum - being greatly hindered (especially
in the U.S.) by linkage of the word “massage” to
the years, much of that opposition has been removed. Today,
Medical Massage Therapy is one of the fastest growing health
care modalities on the planet. In my own practice, I became
known through the words and support of physicians and former
patients who, after benefiting greatly from my care, began to
tell their friends and colleagues about me. Many of those
friends would never have come for treatment if it weren't for
the gentle encouragement of someone they trusted - someone who
said to them: "Okay. He won't hurt you. It really
these loving and gentle people gave to me, and to my approach
to healing, was authority. They staked their own reputation
with friends and business associates, so that my influence in
people’s lives could expand, and become known. This is
exactly how it will happen with our Star Children as well.
Little by little, adults will simply begin saying to each
other: “These kids know what they’re talking about. We
need to listen to them!"
issue of control.
Today, we live in a world that is heavily invested in the idea
of control. We want to control the environment. We want to
control the economy. We want to control the flow of the rivers
and oceans that wash up against the lands upon which we live.
Most of all, we want to control each other.
is a "hit and miss" kind of thing. Sometimes fate
arranges things so that all the "ducks" in our lives
line up in neat little rows. “In Camelot,” as the song
says, “the rain may never fall till after sundown. By eight
the morning fog must disappear.” It all sounds so nice,
even Camelot eventually had its problems. With or without
technology, there are forces and factors in the lives of
humankind today that simply will not lend themselves to the
idea of control. Among those factors are our marvelous,
beloved Star Children.
days past, child rearing was a pretty clear-cut thing.
Children were to be "seen and not heard". If a child
disobeyed, his or her father would simply reach for a paddle
in order to apply the "board of education to the seat of
learning". Children learned to keep thoughts to
themselves - so much so, in fact, that some of them lost the
ability to think altogether.
all these societal shifts, the energetic effects of the Star
Children were beginning to be felt. Poets like Kahlil Gibran
began to tell us that our children come through us, but they
do not belong to us - and they are bound for lives that are
their own. We can watch them, and we can love them. But the
paths of their destiny were laid out long before we met them.
And, concerning many aspects of their journey, it is not our
place to interfere.
Many adults today tend to think of children as possessions.
The court system certainly doesn’t help that situation,
either. We reason that, since we have the "moral
responsibility" to feed and house these young people, and
the legal power to make decisions for them, our children must
be beholden to every rule and ordinance we choose to concoct.
one parent put it: "My house, my rules." However, if
the child lives there, is it not his house as well? Just
because someone is unable to financially contribute to the
maintenance and upkeep of the place, isn't he still a
contributing force to that household? Isn’t her job, her
specialty, simply being the resident child?
a symbolic sense, children are little mirrors for their
parents. They are the embodiment of certain aspects of those
parents' personality and aspiration, which desired to be
reborn into the world. They are passion and curiosity, freshly
directed towards desires and goals that may have been
forgotten or laid aside in the older folks’ pursuit of
security and/or social standing.
adults overlook this important insight. Instead of getting out
of the way, and drinking in the energy of their children’s
joy and fresh discovery of life, parents try to force these
kids into behavioral molds, patterns for living that do not
reflect their own intuitive core.
artificial personality construct, which many parents seek to
install, tends to suppress the clear reflection that their
children bring concerning the parents’ shadow self—their
own hidden issues. Instead of seeing that reflection in their
little ones, resistant parents become busy about the task of
breaking or distorting the mirror. On some level, children
realize this and they either learn to resist the whole
business or they accept the teaching, thereby losing their
the ancient Celtic traditions, such an adapted child is
referred to as a “changeling”. He is the shell of a human
being - a body that is functioning and living in the world,
with no child left inside. Ancient legend dictates, that the
souls of changelings go to live in the realm of the Fae (the
Faery Kingdom), where they remain forever, unless they are
invited to come back in and bring that body back to life. In
our own literature, these changelings are analogous to the
“Lost Boys” of Never-Never Land.
the family unit continues to deteriorate within our society,
more and more couples find themselves in divorce court,
seeking to sort out the details of jangled lives. Among the
many "items" that go on the bargaining table - along
with the boat, the time-share condominium, and the antique
china that belonged to Aunt Minnie - are the shining faces and
blossoming potential of minor children who live in that
James Taylor's song goes, recounting the sorrows and
wistfulness of family break-ups: "She gets the house and
the garden, he gets the boys and the van." That’s about
the size of it. Control. Authority. And the money goes round
and round, and the lawyers get fatter and fatter. If fact, in
many instances, it is actually the lawyers who end up with the
house and garden, is it not?
this series, we wish to paint a picture - to begin to
construct a vision. How we will get there is secondary, at
this point, to actually learning where we need to get. First
things first. In the next two installments, we will speak
about “The Imagine Nation” in detail. We will see what the
ideal world may look like, if it was designed from the
viewpoint of a Star Child.
continued input and feedback is appreciated, and I do love
hearing from you! As the energy on the planet continues to
rise, more and more of what we will be discussing as theory
will congeal itself into actual physical reality. So it will
be, so has it always been.
