Return to the Now, a Guest Post by Mike Hopkins

Boy MeditatingBy Mike Hopkins

Prepare. Yes, prepare for the days ahead. Days of trials in fire and renewal of the Earth by waters rising.

Hard days, some might say, difficult days. All we will say is necessary days if Mankind is to continue on the path of evolution or evolvement into half human, half God.

Mans’ destiny from the beginning of time. Now, soon to be fulfilled in human time.
Man has chosen this although the ego will say not.

Man was once the ruler of ego and lived amongst all creatures both seen and unseen. Then a separation occurred and Man forgot what he truly was and why he had come into this existence known as being human.
Now, the time of remembrance draws near.

Man will once again recall what he really is and why he has chosen to incarnate into human form.
Balance will return again to Man. A balance you call between Heaven and Earth. A balance we just call, “our natural state of being”.

A madness has overtaken the human form but as with all illness, health returns when left to its’ own natural course.
Illness can be seen as nothing more than a non-alignment with Nature and the Soul or what can also be called the Self.

Some call it a higher Self, some call it ones’ higher nature, some call it the best part of ones’ humanity, we just call it oneself.
If seen from our point of view, a Self at play creating a life story. If seen from yours, a being struggling to survive in a harsh world.

It is all a matter of perspective. You look forward, we look back and where we meet is the eternal Now of Creation.
From the Now, past and future co-exist together with no division or separation.

The Now is the great revealer and equalizer.
The Now is both the seeds of possibility as well as the fruits of your labors here on Earth.

The Now is the quickest, safest and shortest route to ones’ Glory.
Being in the Now opens countless doors of opportunity as well as countless possibilities of being and doing.

Christ lived in the Now and brought forth great possibility as well as opportunity for Mankind to develop and evolve into something greater than yourselves.

Christ lived in the Now and great healings occurred. Healing is born in the Now.

A healthy past can be returned to and at the same time, a healthy future can be entered into.

Love returns in the Now.

Life returns in the Now.

All that one is, has been, and ever will be, returns and meets in the Now and this is why being in the Now brings about miracles of healing or miracles of change within the human organism.

Your psychologies are based upon dwelling on or digging into the past. This is why it is an ineffective system that often does more harm than good. Not that the practitioners are not well intended, but when did good intentions alone, without real knowledge and skills, ever bring about great internal changes in the human psyche?

If they rather brought their patients to the Now, then miracles would occur and a true healing of both body and mind would occur.

It’s the same with medical science. Rather than treat a person by looking at what is occurring now in a body, the practitioners look at past histories and family genetics which is not the place to look if healing is to occur.

This will change in time. Man will again remember knowledge that was long forgotten yet still resides in the Now. Mankind will also remember knowledge developed far into what you call the future and bring this back to the Now.

So, now perhaps you understand if not consciously, than unconsciously, the power of the Now. If Mankind began to access knowledge from the Now, then great progress would be made in all the sciences. Man would and will discover or uncover knowledge that is always available since past and future occur simultaneously within the Now of Creation.

So, now do you understand the power of the Now?

Now, for a moment we live in the Now.



“Where is Home?” A Special Guest Post from Ophelius and the 11:11 Progress Group

I am delighted to celebrate one year of blogging with a very special guest post that arrived in an email from George and Sunny Barnard.  They publish heart-healing posts at The 1111 Progress Group that bring to light the never-ending love of the Divine, and the magnitude of aid the human race is receiving now from higher beings. George and Sunny’s blogis a source of great comfort and inspiration to many people, including me. Their email address is:

When I read the email posted below, I thought, These words sum up in a few paragraphs what I’ve been trying to say all year. I wrote and asked for permission to post it, hoping for a yes, not knowing if they ever did that. They said yes, and I am thrilled to share it with you. It is my sincere hope that your heart and mind are synchronized and moved to a place of knowing that you are loved beyond measure.

Receiver’s note: Ophelius said there was a special guest in the Circle for this transmission and that the readers of this message would find ‘power in the words.’

are the noblest paths to higher consciousness.” – Teacher Ophelius, 2009.

Healing with a Wild Red Tailed Hawk, A Guest Post by Renee Prince

By Renee Prince

Here is the second post from Renee Prince, who has a good friend who is a wild Red Tailed Hawk.  She had a chronic illness (as do I) and believes her relationship with Tennerin is what has healed her. This is very interesting to me because I’ve been slowly healing since I made contact with the Red Tailed Hawks who come and go from my neighborhood. Here are more of Renee’s own words on healing and Tennerin; the pictures in this post are hers, taken of Tennerin.

Note: Renee Prince crossed to the other side on June 29, 2015, after a tough battle with cancer. She is missed by all who knew her and even those like me whose life she briefly touched…

“Thank you for writing back! It is always wonderful to read of other people’s hawk experiences.  At my website,,  there are pages about Tennerin and another story about him, as well as some other pages you might find interesting, especially the metaphysics (although the finishing up is woefully out of date—I need to update all sorts of things on the site and will try to do that this week). Also on my site are pages about Candace Pert, the neurobiologist who discovered the opiate receptor; she believes that thoughts actually change our cellular structure by increasing the amounts of neurotransmitters, whether they are “sad” transmitters (which in circular fashion make us feel sadness) or “happy” transmitters (such as endorphins, which give us, among other things, that famous “runner’s high”), formed by our thoughts. Our cells constantly change the amounts of receptors for these particular neurotransmitters and eventually if you are “happy” more often, your cells will change the number of “happy receptors” and allow more of these happy neurotransmitters to hook onto our cells, thus changing our feelings positively in a whole-body way through a circular, interconnected feedback system.

I am indeed planning to write a book about Tennerin, and one of the theories I have about how he (and other animals that we have a close, loving, or sacred relationship with) can heal us, is that the love we exchange, unconditional and powerful, changes us at the cellular level over time, via a mechanism like Dr. Pert has discovered. This doesn’t make it any less miraculous—but it does move this kind of healing from the “new age, weirdo fluff” area to real, demonstrable phenomena. This in turn will (I hope, through my book, books like it, and through the work of Dr. Pert, as well as organizations like the Institute of Noetic Sciences and researchers like Charles Tart and others, makes such healing more acceptable, and more accessible to all kinds of people.  I also hope it will give people a new sense of the value of our relationships with animals and their potential.

I really wish I could find the time to make another film of Tennerin, because I have years of great footage, especially this year of the hawk air show, but I am so busy right now. It will happen, I just have to prioritize. The only reason I am not writing a book about Tennerin right now is that I am in the process of finishing a dolphin book which I feel very strongly driven to send out into the world, as soon as possible.  However, I have been keeping a Hawk Diary of every day we have had together, exploring metaphysical issues, subtleties of our relationship and some amazing communication experiences between us, and so the book is actually being written in that form, at least.

Your experience with the two hawks who had the “wall” up is interesting.  I have had the same type of feeling from Tennerin’s mate, who I call Chocolate, and sometimes from Tennerin when he is on watch guard duty, when there are eagles in his territory or stranger hawks.  He seems to be very annoyed by my stupidity in trying to talk to him during those times, and it really hurt my feelings, until I realized that it is life or death to him up there, and I might seem frivolous and so completely ignorant of the real world, with all its dangers.

One day he flew to me and screamed angrily at me over and over again, while I stood there asking him, “What’s wrong?” again and again.  Then the hair on the back of my neck rose up and I turned around to see a pair of adult bald eagles charging through the air toward us both.  I ran inside the house and Tennerin disappeared, too.  He was trying to get me out of harm’s way and risking his own safety to do so.

With Chocolate, she (or he—I don’t know what sex Tennerin is, really) will take food if I leave it out for her and then I go wait up at the top of the hill (you’ll see the layout by the river in the video).The feeling from her is that the food is nice, but the thing (me) that is leaving it for her is an uncomfortable, probably dangerous creature that doesn’t matter.

In fact, the two hawks look so alike that one of the ways I can tell them apart is by how they treat me. From Tennerin I have received such benign affection; it seems to radiate from him, even when he is sitting far up at the top of a tree downriver. But Chocolate does have her affectionate times, too. It’s usually at the end of the season, when their hormones are many times more active than during the non-mating season. Then she will wait quietly by me for hours, watching me and even listening to me talk. Tennerin is more a game-player, and loves to play tricks on me. I will have to explain what those are, though, when I have more time.

So, thanks again for your letter and I hope you enjoy the links.  Feel free to comment on my blog site, as well, or you can write me here, too.

Blessings to You,


PS–A friend of mine told me I was a “Borderlander” from a book about people like me (and I think you are, too).  Here is the link to the author of that book’s site for some fascinating insights: Profile of the Borderland Personality at Borderlanders.  There are others all along the path, and it is always good to connect as we pause along the way and look around that path through the eyes of others, both human and animal.”
