Dear ONE,

In the last year or so, if you’ve been feeling more destabilized, ungrounded and outside of linear space and time than ever before, then welcome to a few of the brand-new special effects of the Quickening Phase II!

What is the Quickening?  I describe it as the continuous, unrelenting acceleration of planetary, galactic and cosmic energies heralding in the next Great Age in the evolution of consciousness. 

I’ve been writing about the Quickening since the 90’s and have been feeling it’s effects since the Harmonic Convergence in 1987.  But in the last year, we’ve been experiencing an unprecedented surge of higher frequency waves bombarding the Earth Plane.

I’ve concluded, based on personal experience and that of many clients I’ve been working with since last Spring, that we’ve entered the next phase of this ongoing bombardment with perhaps the maximum-speed of vibrational energies that human beings have ever had to contend with to date.

The Quickening is affecting everyone, but for those of us who are psychically sensitive, it can be especially uncomfortable, even though the ultimate outcome is good news: The ability to handle more “juice” with an expanded consciousness of Being.

        In the meantime, we may feel as if we have what I call the “psychic flu.” This is a confluence of symptoms that many finely tuned souls have been experiencing cyclically for decades—including me.  Main symptoms can include combinations of fatigue, body aches and joint pain, nervousness and free-floating anxiety (i.e., metaphysical angst), restless sleep, brain fog and feelings that the ego-identity is disintegrating.

The cause of the above symptoms is that the downloading of higher frequency galactic energies is much more than the “normal” body’s nervous system and psychic circuitry can handle without difficulty—exacerbated by periods of solar flares which occur at regular intervals throughout the year. Our job is to learn how to adapt our physical vessels to handle these higher frequencies as a “new normal” way of Being or suffer the consequences.

        In my own case, I began experiencing symptoms of Phase II downloads since March 2016 when my nervous system and psychic circuitry started being rewired.  At first, I didn’t know what was happening to me.  I felt extreme hot flashes and night sweats as well as a scary blacking-out every afternoon for twenty minutes to an hour no matter how much sleep I had the night before.

        This was so alarming to my life partner that he suggested we do a psychic reading to find out what was happening to me.  When we did, I was informed by my guides (whom I call HAGF, i.e., Highest Available Galactic Forces): That I was being rewired psychically to handle these high frequency downloads. Furthermore that, every day while I was passed out, psychic surgery was being performed on me.  And that these episodes of instantaneous unconsciousness were a form of etheric anesthesia, if you will.

        When I came out of trance, I immediately exclaimed, “Of course!”  Because the reading reminded me that I’d already been rewired to handle more “juice” twice before.  Once in my mid-twenties (written about in my first book, Openings) and again in my mid-forties (written about in my second book, Cosmic Sugar). But both those times lasted only a few days and, while initially disconcerting, once I understood what was going on through psychic readings on my condition, the adaption, even including psychic surgery both times, was relatively seamless. 

This time, however, now that I’m in my mid-sixties, I was informed that the rewiring—which my guides intimated may be my third and final one—was so massive that it was going to take at least six months!

        So, I started scheduling time in the late afternoons for the daily blackouts—as one minute I would be sitting up and fine, the next minute unconscious.  Also, because I was overheating at night from all the energy being downloaded, I started sleeping with windows open or air conditioner on high as needed, which felt wonderful.

        My partner started feeling as if he were being electrocuted while we were making love and began to be afraid to get too close.  I empathized, as I was feeling uncomfortably electrified and like an over-heated generator most of the time.  So, to handle my new vibrational frequency better, I shared with him how to do the Taoist standing chi gung to help ground the energies he was picking up from me, and this practice continues to be the most important thing that we both do every day.

        During the Summer, I experienced what felt like the entire library of all souls’ history in the Akashic Records being downloaded into me, one soul record at a time, each taking a second or two.  Now that’s a high-speed download!  And it went on relentlessly for weeks, 24/7.

        Just as soon as I stabilized in October, my partner started passing out daily and the energy was so destabilizing that he became afraid that he was sick or going a little nutsy as he had never experienced being rewired before.  He wondered if he was just absorbing the energy horizontally from me or was actually ill.

  But, no, we did a reading and, sure enough, it was his turn to be vertically rewired to directly handle the Quickening Phase II and my turn to get some electrical jolts for the first time ever while we were engaged in dual cultivation.  At least we were both grateful that the Higher Forces rewired us consecutively, rather than concurrently:).  

        I’ve also been hearing from more and more clients, especially the psychically sensitive ones—like canaries in a psychic diamond mine—that they were afraid they were getting sick, with overheating, exhaustion and passing out, in addition to many of the other symptoms of the psychic flu.

        If you’re experiencing these symptoms, I know that it can be destabilizing, uncomfortable bordering on painful and, at times, downright terrifying—especially if you don’t know what is happening to you—or why you feel under continuous psychic bombardment.

But, the GOOD NEWS is that I’ve found a solution that helps inordinately.  In addition to Taoist practices to ground and stabilize the physical vessel and dissolve anxiety, I’ve developed new and improved psychic empowerment practices to handle these energies in a way that keeps me peaceful, healthy and fully functional as a trance channel in NYC for over 45 years. (No small feat:)!)

Here are the key daily practices:                          

I. Knowing that you’re not physically sick. (Many of my clients were so concerned about their symptoms that they also had complete physicals just to be on the safe side and all tests were normal.)

II. Standing chi gung practice to ground the energy.

III. Psychic empowerment practices to handle the feeling of being energetically under assault vertically and horizontally.


Once we’ve integrated the above daily practices to stabilize internally, how do we make the most of the Quickening Phase II as we look out at this crazy circus world we’re presently in?

 If we pay too much attention to Earth changes and other signs of planetary instability and fear-based responses to these in the mass consciousness (which is always the lowest and slowest vibrational frequency), we can be sure that we’re majorly focused in the direction that is diametrically opposed to where we need to be if we’re interested in maintaining equanimity.

        For example, when Uranus, the Cosmic Trickster of Awakening, stations retrograde on August 3 at 29 degrees of warrior Aries, we’ll be feeling as if Life is applying the pedal to our mettle with no breaks in sight.  In fact, with Uranus ratcheting up the intensity—on both inner and outer levels—as he prepares to enter Taurus in mid-May 2018, he’ll be stirring up everything he set into motion when he first entered Aries in late-May 2009.

        This is true of any outer planet transit.  The first year it enters a new sign it sets up the themes, and the last year before it leaves it’s like a rapidly spiraling snake’s last whip of its tail.  Especially with Uranian trickster energy.

This means that we’ll continue to witness an accelerating destruction of the old order to allow for a new cycle of co-creation more aligned with Unity consciousness.  During this period, inner stability is ever more crucial as Divine order-ly chaos on the planet will be escalating dramatically.

Uranus’s function is to agitate anything—internally and externally—that has become too safe, secure, rigid or stagnant.  His energy awakens our Divine yearnings and disturbs our complacency with the conditioning of society.  He uses the shock of crisis, chaos and emergency situations to “encourage” us to remember who we really are and why we’re really here.  For more on this, please read the Addendum in: 

Embracing the Unexpected: Everything You Wanted to Know about Uranus (But Were Afraid to Ask)


        The Earth is going to get shaken up more than ever before, with an exponential increase in impactful events—such as earthquakes, hurricanes and tsunamis—becoming the “new normal.”  In our personal reality, additional externals and parts of our ego/little selves will continue to fall away, especially if they’re impediments to our illumination.    

        Leonard Cohen’s lyric, “There is a crack, a crack in everything—that’s how the Light gets in,” is especially poignant and pertinent now as there’s gonna be a whole lotta Light coming in: More cracks in the culture, political systems, infrastructure, as well as cracks in our beliefs and in our bodies.

        And while the natural human response to chaos, instability and insecurity is fear, worry and anxiety, all arising from the survival instinct in our animal nature, it becomes ever more important to remember that whatever we feared last year—usually issues of money, love, work or health—are probably not the exact same ones we’re wringing our hands over today.

At least, let’s hope so. Events will continue picking up speed because of the planet’s frequency rising, meaning that Trumpism may well be a thing of the past by the end of 2018.  This is supported by Uranus stabilizing in earthy Taurus and karmic teacher Saturn giving us more practical lessons as he moves into structure-ruling Capricorn just before the end of this year.

Not to mention a major Eclipse in August in Leo directly on Trump’s ascendant/Mars, which will quite explosively bring out into the open all that has been hidden (Eclipses do that) over the six months following the Eclipse event.  (Much more on this in my July Eclipse newsletter.)

        In fact, while fear triggered by our lower nature may never go away completely, I’ve found it exceedingly helpful to view this instinctual arising as a perennial shell game run on cosmic trickster energy, meaning, if it’s not one thing that triggers fear, it’s another—and the focus of the anxiety just keeps moving around.  The only solution when any variety of fear arises—from dread or panic to the subtler forms of apprehension or trepidation—is to choose to witness it arising and dissolving—in every moment as needed—and not get fixated on playing the shell game at all. 

       Instead, as we view unfolding events—no matter how tumultuous—we can choose to stay calm, stable and compassionate at our core of Being by holding the faith that everything is unfolding perfectly in the Divine Plan for our personal soul growth as well as for the evolution of consciousness. 

A human incarnation is like the ultimate multi-dimensional rollercoaster ride, and no matter how circuitous and death-defying it may feel, it always ultimately leads to the same destination:  We get to drop our bodies without losing our Higher Minds.  And, not only is physical death absolutely safe, it’s also the only thing in life that’s absolutely certain. That being said, why do we all waste so much of our precious time worrying, when we could be fully savoring each moment’s potential for expanding our awareness of joy in Being?


       In 2017 and beyond, as we witness more divine order-ly chaos on the mass playing field, we’re being given the opportunity to step up the level of our game with the assistance of the Quickening.  Here are my personal reminders to support this upgrade in consciousness:

 I.  Always maintain the witnessing perspective, which allows me to never take anything personally, no matter what is going on.

II. Keep in mind the deepest secret of Tantra:  Accept everything just as it is in the moment.  Resistance creates suffering.  Here’s a practice:  a) Lean into the pain, desire, sadness or whatever is arising. b) Become one with it until it consumes and dissolves you. c) Experience being reborn from the ashes . . . and smiling.

III. The Flow of Life is not under my control; my true power lies in how I choose to respond and move with it.

IV. If I go for healing and growth in any situation and simultaneously enjoy the ride, I’ll have no regrets later.


      In closing, I think it’s helpful to keep in mind that we’re only on the threshold of the next Great Age in the sign of Aquarius, which will last for over 2000 years.  And that the higher frequency galactic energies bombarding us—while necessary to kick-start this next stage in the evolution of human consciousness—are also playing havoc with all levels of our bodies, from the psychic to the physical.  We are all evolutionary guinea pigs in the vanguard of this New Age.  

               Again, some of the side-effects of this intense download of energies include:  overtaxed nervous systems, strained psychic circuitry, disturbed sleep, overactive dream states, unexplainable fatigue and exhaustion, feelings of structural instability and joint pain, irrational anxiety and brain fog. 

               So, if you’ve been feeling overloaded by higher frequency downloads and/or drained or assaulted by lower vibrational energies, then you’re exactly on schedule.  But please consider that implementing daily mind/body/spirit practices will radically improve your ability to function on Planet Earth in the years to come. 

        If you’re interested in exploring a customized one-hour psychic empowerment session, in-person or by phone, here’s what you’ll learn, including visceral energetic transmissions:

 I. Psychic techniques to calibrate and step-down the Quickening as it moves through our vertical channels so that we can become transducers and transmitters of these transformational frequencies.

 II. Discriminating mind and intuition training in reading the vibrations around us, as these galactic downloads are creating fear-based reactions in many that may manifest as anger and other toxic emotions.

 III. Empowerment skills to seal our etheric bodies horizontally from negative and harmful influences and reverse the flow of energy so that we’re fed vertically from Source.  

IV. Taoist practices to ground our bodies to the Earth to help stabilize and strengthen our psychic circuitry and nervous systems to more comfortably acclimate to these energies. 





I’m sure everyone reading this has been feeling the Quickening’s energies enough to have been wondering: “What the f**k is going on—and when is it going to let up?”

       Well, like the Eagles’ song Hotel California says, we can “check out but we can never leave” (i.e., try to distract ourselves or ignore the Quickening), as there truly is no escape and nowhere else to go.  In fact, these energies show no sign of ever slowing down again.


In closing, beneficent Jupiter will be going direct with full steam ahead through the final degrees of lover Libra from June 9 through October 10, so we’ll have some positive winds beneath our wings, for sure.   And spiritual Neptune in cosmic Pisces will be helping us as he enters his annual retrograde cycle for five months in mid-June, by whispering, “Go within.” That means this summer, all spiritual practices, especially in Nature, will pay off big time in terms of much needed internal stability and grounding.


Wishing us all a successful and minimally disruptive (ha-ha) rewiring and downloading of the Quickening Phase II’s ongoing energies and a glorious Summer of inner and outer fun and pure aliveness.
