I made mention in my
last article about beginning a discussion on special abilities and
powers that are now being manifested in the lives of our Children of
the New Earth. It is timely for us to look at this issue, because
humankind is now on the verge of a worldwide awakening to the presence
of these kids, which will be greatly energized by the display of the
gifts they bring to help us through these difficult years that lie
ahead for Planet Earth.
I took the title from a 1992 Steve Martin movie called
Faith which, in my opinion, is one of the best movies he's
ever made. Not only does it highlight his comedic style, but it
carries a huge inspirational message with it. The story plot revolves
around a phony faith healer, named Jonas Nightingale who, along with
his trusty sidekick Jane (played by Debra Winger), makes an unplanned
stop in a small rural town in Kansas. While waiting for a broken axle
to be fixed on one of their trucks, Jonas and Company decide to set up
their tents and choirs to give the people of this town a taste of "The
Lord." The phrase "Signs and Wonders" is painted all over their buses
and trucks, along with promises of healing, renewed prosperity, and
city-wide revival of faith in God.
The irony of this movie rests in a relationship that grows between
the Rev. Jonas and a young local boy, whose name is Boyd (played
beautifully by Lukas Haas). Boyd is a young man in pain, and he spends
a good deal of the movie hobbling about on crutches, which came as a
result of a freak car accident earlier in his life. Boyd's pretty
sister, who catches the Reverend's wandering eye, is quite cynical
about the whole business. Apparently, her brother has been to many
faith healers, trying to find the right energy to help him walk again.
The story plot is a study of what happens when we mix charlatanism,
skepticism, acute human need, show-biz special effects, and child-like
faith all in the same bowl—dust bowl, that is--right in the middle of
a drought-stricken Midwestern town. This town could be any one of a
number of towns in the U.S. today, suffering from unemployment, failed
businesses, and crops that cannot be harvested, due to inclement
Steve Martin's character beautifully showcases the familiar
attributes of any number of unscrupulous religionists who prey upon
the hopes and fears (and toxic shame) of people who have grown up
under "fire and brimstone" preaching. His gift (and his game) is
turning old time fear and guilt into new world hope and expectancy.
Then he goes for the money. Whether Jonas is willing to admit it or
not, he actually does have a genuine healing gift, and a real
time connection to God, though his greed and his cynicism keep him
from seeing it. It is not until Jonas meets Boyd, who honestly looks
up to him as the man of power he claims to be, that the whole story
plot begins to heat up.
It brings to mind that scene in the third Star Wars movie
when a fallen Luke Skywalker looks up at his evil father (Darth Vader)
and says: "I feel the good in you." It is such a powerful moment; a
Star Child Prototype using his ability to look beyond his father's
failures, his facade, and his abuse of power, and to catch sight of
the magical child who still exists at his core. Powerful stuff,
indeed! And, in Leap of Faith, when Boyd publicly, at a
healing service, reaches out to Rev. Jonas (and to God) to help him
walk again, the resulting miracle not only uplifts the town, it also
has a life-altering effect on the preacher, himself.
"I See the Good in You"
I suppose the first and greatest gift that young people will bring us
during these trying times on Earth is a sincere statement of faith--not
just in the power of a God, or the consensus of some religion--but in
our own innate spiritual power, and our connection to everything and
everyone. Boyd's fervent belief in the healing power in Jonas was
clearly rewarded, as all fervent beliefs will be. What we
think about comes about! What we believe we surely receive.
The jaded, oft disappointed, hardened mindset of socialized
"adults" in today's society seriously needs a dose of child-like
vision and simple belief. We've spent so many years trusting in
someone or something else to save us! Politics, Religion, and
Technology. That is the Old Paradigm--Separation, Sin, and Salvation.
The New Paradigm is about believing in our Divine Core Self, as well
as the Core of our Planet, as united with all people and
things...everywhere. We are the creators of our reality, real-life
facets of God/Goddess/All That Is. There is no separation. There never
was. It's all been a Game, and that Old Game is passing away, making
way for a New One.
The Indigos come to question authority, and that's good. However,
in that questioning, many of them are also gently affirming that they,
too, can "see the good in us." This has a tremendously rejuvenating
effect. Respect begets respect--even if it is a respect that is borne
of possibility thinking and intuitive insight.
Yes, many adults are hardened and set in our ways. Those of us who
have power (and responsibility) over others are often stressed to the
max, trying to make ends meet in this wild and crazy world. We try to
be open to new things, but addictions to past experience and response
patterns sometimes get in our way. Like Darth Vader, we need love to
help us awaken. And we need admiration--not just for what we are, but
also for what we could be. If you wish to understand what goes on
inside many of us, go check out the 1980s video of The Big Chill.
We started out as idealists and humanitarians, many of us, and we then
got hooked on security and creature comforts along the way. We aren't
dead, by any means, but we could use a jump-start to get the energy
moving in us again. A child or young person's love can go a long ways
toward helping to bring that about.
Spiritual Gifts and Abilities
In one of their transmissions last year,
the Reconnections had this to
say about the topic of
"The transformation continues. And you are each learning, in
detail, about those particular "gifts" you bring, which perfectly
portray your own expanding nature and are most useful for the
Planetary Unfoldment as it expresses itself within your immediate
vicinity. Indeed, you are ALL OF IT, in a macrocosmic sense. Never
forget this wonderful, grounding fact. But locally, at the
experiential level, you each embody something very unique and
Spiritual Gifts fall into three categories: Orientations of Spirit
(what motivates you), Operations of Spirit (what you tend to
manifest), and Opportunities for Service (what calls out to you for
help). All of these are your way of nurturing the planet and your 3D
self. We call them, respectively: Charismation, Energematon, and
Diakonion. These ancient Greek terms beautifully embody the
distinctive focus of each category, as well as the community of
individuals that will rally around it on the Earth."
Spiritual Gifts are useful, kind of like "super powers," helping
Star Kids (and upgraded adults) do the work of reconnecting humanity
to Universal Source. They also bring validation and authority--bearing
witness to a child's sacred purpose in society at this crucial time.
Remember Jesus, in the water with John the Baptist, at the beginning
of his ministry? A dove came down, and hovered over him, and a Voice
from Heaven spoke these words: "This is My own beloved Son, in whom I
am most pleased. Hear Him." In many ways, this is what "Signs and
Wonders" will do for our awakening New Kids as "The
Quickening" moves forward on Planet Earth.
An Overview of a Few Gifts
I'm going to refrain from saying much about "psychic knowing" in this
column, because so many are covering that topic in this publication
already. We'll let it suffice to say that the gifts of "E.S.P.,
Precognition, and Spiritual Discernment" are beginning to abound in
Generations X, Y, and Z. As early as age three, Star Kids are speaking
openly and frankly about things past and future, dumbfounding their
parents and grandparents with what they know, as well as what they
understand about life.
Another gift, akin to the gift of psychic knowing is our New Kids'
expanding faculty of Telepathy. I was speaking on the phone one night
with a friend in Los Angeles. She is an actress, and frequently goes
out with others to discuss the newest trends in the “the business,” as
well as other powerful topics. She was telling me a story about our
tiny Star Children that I must pass on.
A waiter in her favorite restaurant in West Los Angeles could not
avoid overhearing the conversation being spoken at her table one day.
He stopped by and said to her group: “I’m sorry to interrupt, but I
simply must be part of this conversation.” She and her friends were
speaking about Spirit, and especially about the Children of the New
The waiter told them: “These New Kids are so amazing to me! I’ve
never been particularly psychic, but I am regularly having children
come in here, between the ages of two and six years old, who
telepathically give me their orders for lunch.” He says he can
actually hear their voices, speaking to him in his mind. Apparently,
this waiter gets specific detailed orders for food transmitted
directly from the little horse’s mouths! Clearly, the power belongs
solely to the kids. In all other parts of his life, he claims, there
are no telepathic incidents.
In essence, the Gift of Telepathy is the ability to send and
receive people's thoughts without the use of a telephone or other
communications device. Its close kin, the Gift of Telempathy, is the
ability to send and receive emotions. The Reconnections often
emphasize that there will come a time in Earth's History when the
elaborate workings of our Physical Internet will be disrupted, due to
natural disaster, war, or other disturbances. It will be at those
times when humanity will discover the greater workings of this neural
INNER NET that is being formed and developed within each of us even as
we speak. It's how many of our kids are "Working the Grid" to assist
as we give birth to our New Earth.
These gifts fall into the category of Operations of Spirit in the
list above. They are baubles, flashy jewels that tend to catch
people's attention. Remember how Grace put her hands on that old man
in the movie Indigo? Her touch brought him back from his Land
of Dreams, where Alzheimer's disease held his spirit captive. I teared
up when I saw that in the movie. Even though it wasn't expounded upon
much, and it represents only the tip of the iceberg, I still got tears
in my eyes. The young and the very old, what music they make as they
dance the dance of awakening!
Next month I'll be talking more about Orientations of Spirit
(motivations) that operate underneath these gifts. We'll explore the
inner forces that form and energize our own life motivations as we go
through each day. There will come a time when Spiritual Orientations
(Gifts and Abilities) will become a powerful framework to organize and
administrate a New Society as we expand and develop beyond the year
And so it goes. I do appreciate the e-mails you send, telling me
about your own experiences with these wonderful New Kids. I also
appreciate the candor of Star Seed Adults, who share what it's like to
be energetically upgraded and fitted for service during these
transformative times. Stay in touch... with me and with each other.
We've only just begun to see the Signs and Wonders that this New Life
