Story 1: Be careful what you wish (bone) for ....
Here's a little story that happened to me. I like to cook a turkey for dinner on special occasions and to make soup with the bones the next day. I like to save the birds' wishbones. They're for wishing and a symbol of good luck. My mom wrapped them in tin foil and tied them onto wedding gifts. Others I know hang them in their kitchens too. It's a pretty little bone and it seems right to hang up it.
On one particular turkey soup day, and being in a hurry to go out, I didn't think to remove the wishbone before making the stock. After the stock was strained the bones were so hot I only had a tentative look and didn't find it. All the bones went into a bowl for our dog which I took outside when I left. When I came home I went over to pick up the bowl and could hardly believe my eyes. It was licked clean except for one thing, the wishbone.
Story 2: The Afterlife
My husband bought a new (old) funeral home. We already own two others. The funeral industry is changing so as we make plans to redecorate the new funeral home we are projecting our thoughts into the future. The building and its furnishings are very traditional and more suited for the past generations, not appealing to the Boomers, their children and grandchildren. I'm an interior designer and Feng Shui Practitioner so I do lots of planning before starting a project. However this new project feels different. We know that cremations are increasing but we also know that families like to memorialize their loved ones with some kind of meaningful ceremony.
My question to your readers would be "What do you want to happen to your body when you die? How do you want to be remembered? Does a religion play a role in your ceremony of choice? How do you want the inside of the building to look and feel?"
Thank you for your suggestions.
I am the wrong person to ask these questions but here goes ... I never think about dying - I only see myself leaving when the program ends - no arrangements needed - (laugh) - the physical body gone. Remember ... we have all died many times and should be used to it by now.
How do I want to be remembered? I'll have to think about that - never considered it as the program will be over. From what I have gathered in many families ... death often splits families as karma is complete and people fight about inheritance.
Religion? If I were a normal human, my family would place me in the ground in Beth David Jewish cemetery in Queens, NY, next to Ralph. Here's a funny story. My daughter Zsia, who also sees and talks to Ralph, is married to Jon. Jon's grandmother died last week and was buried in Beth David cemetery. It was a cold day with ice and snow everywhere. Zsia thought to visit her father's grave and went looking for it. As she walked around ... slip-sliding over people graves ... knocking the traditional small stones people leave when visiting, to the ground (that's a silly tradition) trying to keep her balance (there's got to be a metaphor or 2 here) ... there was Ralph ... no, not his grave which she never found, but Ralphie the Ghost. She said the whole experience was hilarious. The moral of the story ... Do what those you leave behind expect you to do so they can mourn your passing in a traditional way, but at the end of the day understand the truth ... the box is empty ... except for the bones and maybe some forensic evidence if needed (I watch too many cop shows), but that takes us to my client stories mentioned here last week linked to the Mafia - the whole situation arresting.
Your next question - the building. I prefer something clean and modern, but again I think it's best you ask others. I wish you and your family success in what is not a dying business - even in a recession. Follow your instincts and follow Feng Shui. I hope others can answer your questions in a more formal way than I did. Sorry but after a lifetime of talking to spirits, the rest seems nothing more than human traditions in this timeline.
Where are the bodies buried?
Funeral Traditions, Art, History Wikipedia
Funeral rites are as old as the human culture itself, predating modern Homo sapiens, to at least 300,000 years ago. For example, in the Shanidar cave in Iraq, in Pontnewydd Cave in Wales and other sites across Europe and the Near East, Neanderthal skeletons have been discovered with a characteristic layer of flower pollen. This has been interpreted as suggesting that Neanderthals believed in an afterlife, although the evidence is not unequivocal - while the dead were apparently indeed buried deliberately, the flowers might have been introduced by burrowing rodents.
Story 3: Crossing Bridges
Thank you for your years of work. Thank you for your dedication to your art. It is, and has been appreciated, deeply.
Years ago, I had a dream that I was driving to visit you. I was driving across the Verrazano Bridge, but the bridge was vertical, and I was driving straight up. This morning, I was reminded of that dream. Lately, one of my catch phrases has been "blast off". I find myself sneaking that phrase into my day more frequently. Beam me up! Up and onward to higher levels of consciousness. I am excited, and filled with a sense of accomplishment for all that has passed, and all that is yet to come.
Every day that I turn on my TV, or browse the net for the news of the day, and of the inserts being added into our collective reality, I am deeply amused. And curious. Like a very scripted final act, all of the pieces of the puzzle are coming together. Soon, we will have a clear picture and view of exactly what we have all been "working on".
I have come to a deep sense of peace regarding these next few months. My mind has ventured into the last stages of this year, and of this experience. I propose a question for you, and for the dedicated readers of your website, and fellow travelers on this journey that we are currently on.
Ponder this. What comes next? How do you plan to use this next year of your life? What is important to you now? What do you see AFTER this program ends? What kind of experience would you want next for yourself, if you could choose?
Now, we are all watching and waiting for what is looming on the horizon. I wish every reader a safe, peaceful and magical journey over these upcoming days, weeks, and months. Enjoy the artistry that has been put into this place, and into this project. Enjoy every moment.
Thank you Ellie.

People always ask me what comes next, but my consciousness is too limited at this level to understand it. As for the time remaining, just relaxing and having fun with friends, family and readers and waiting to see what surprises come along. There is something that I will connect with very soon. If you put together all of the esoteric philosophies, you would never figure this one out. It is next. My phrase is ... "Wait for it". My POI (person of interest) is Nikola Tesla who took me on a journey (time travel--remote view) to his buried papers and files, last week. Who says you can't take it with you? Nikola was not from here. We are from the same frequency. Everything comes up Tesla.
Story 4: It's All in the Book
Just wanted to share two quick things!
I have been wanting to order a copy of your book for a long time, but my 'little voice' kept saying "Wait for it." So I did. Then you began displaying a counter of how many hard copies you have remaining. I checked the counter almost daily, but still got the "Wait for it." Then, finally, yesterday, it said "7 copies remaining", and the little voice said, "Your wait is over!" So I immediately ordered it! I don't know if it's something about the number 7, something about that specific copy that you would choose to send, or something about your journey to the post office you use to mail your books, or if it has to do with the 'timing' in my life for finally reading the story. But it is definitely something, some reason.
Also, I have been having a recurring dream that I just couldn't quite carry with me to waking time. But I finally did. In the dream state, I have amnesia, and know that I have amnesia. And the "little voice" tells me I am about to regain my full memory. ALL my memories, across all lifetimes and planes of existence. Yeah, I would say that's about right!! Lol!!
I hope you have a wonderful day, every day, until we get 'bleeped' the 'bleep' outta here!!!
From Ellie: Take the last 2 digits of the year you were born + the age you will be this year and it will equal 111.
Story 1: Math is the language of the universe.
I really enjoyed the 111 synchronicity you posted on Ellie's World today, as I'm really fascinated by Numerology. That is so wild!
I work in Accounting, and when I started updating cash receipts for yesterday ... guess what my journal number was? 111. I love it!

Story 2: Bird speak ...
I have been visiting your site for 10+ years, and want to share an experience I had New Years morning. I took my German Shepherd out in the backyard. When I looked up in the sky I saw a wondrous thing. There must have been 30-40 hawks gliding in the air above me. I knew that this could not be, but I kept on watching. I knew if I went inside for my phone or a camera, they would be gone.
About 500 feet away I saw a tree full of crows that almost seemed still in time. It was as though they were saying, "I don't know about you George, but I ain't moving my black tail feathers until those hawks are gone." Not one bird flew away while the hawks were in the sky. Knowing that hawks never flew like that, I kept watching and sure enough, several came right above my head to verify my question.
In my heart I knew that this had to be either Divine, Metaphysical or Native American in nature. I have searched for an answer and thought maybe you could help. I am 1/4 Mohawk. My first female ancestor in Canada was exorcised 3 times by the then Father Lavale, who became Monsignor Lavale for whom Lavale University was founded and named in 1663.

Horus was the Hawk-headed, or falcon-headed, god in the Egyptian pantheon. This takes us to rebirth, resurrection, Eye of Horus symbology of this program/reality, etc. 30-40 = 3->4 or moving out of the physical on the New Year (1/1/11=4) - into the new. The Crow is an omen of death and rebirth - return to the black hole/whole. The crow as the raven is symbolic of mind, thought and wisdom. All birds represent transition from one reality to another. They are messengers.
When 7 becomes 8 ... Infinity...
Mohawk Prophecy of the Seventh Generation
Seven generations after contact with the Europeans, the Onkwehonwe would see the day when the elm trees would die.
Strange animals would be born deformed and without the proper limbs.
Huge stone monsters would tear open the face of the earth.
The rivers would burn.
The air would burn the eyes of man.
The birds would fall from the sky.
The fish would die in the water.
And man would grow ashamed of the way that he had treated his Mother and Provider, the Earth.
After seven generations of living in close contact with the Europeans, the Onkwehonwe would rise up and demand that their rights and stewardship over the Earth be respected and restored.
According to the wisdom of this prophecy, men and women would one day turn to the Onkwehonwe for both guidance and direction. It is up to the present generation of youth of the Kanienkehaka to provide leadership and example to all who have failed. The children of the Kanienkehaka (Mohawk) are the seventh generation.
Story 3: The Children of Turtle Island
Thank you for the submission invite. I've been following your blog for a few years now and visit your website quite often when I'm looking for information. Your work fascinates me.
I've attached a picture/sketch my six-year-old granddaughter drew sometime in November. I found it in her room hiding in a pile of paper on her little desk. To tell the truth, my jaw dropped. I really couldn't believe what I was looking at mainly because I follow the news, read various alternative blogs and have been watching the 2012 phenomena unfold for a few years now.
All kinds of lights came on as I recognized world events/issues that were and are still being talked about. I asked her if she could tell me a little bit about the picture and what she responded with was the Arctic (bottom right). Other than that, she didn't know. What I was seeing was the Australian floods, the Mayan Calendar, solar flares (wa for waves), possible dates, etc. She drew another picture a few days later and then scribbled all over it. She seemed to be fixated on the Canadian Arctic, mountains, waves and ocean life (whales and that little person turtle).
I'm curious as to what other people, including yourself, might 'see' in this picture, if anything, and am hoping perhaps that you might post it for comment. I have two grand daughters, five and six, and the things they say or do sometimes have me laughing in amazement. From the minds and mouths of babes....... I often wonder what the world will be like for them.
There is so much here, I'm not sure where to begin. What first gabbed me, maybe because of Pam's email, was the turtle. Turtle Island is a Native American term for the North American continent and Canada - the First People. Lots of numeric codes as well. It looks like a mention of Australia with water below. It even has my address: 10031. It further reminded of this 2008 blog - "Grandmother Ellie" by Matthew, age 4.

Story 4: Waiting for a new world, but already there
I just wanted to say thanks for being out here, your website has been a source of so much fact finding for me! I remember when I first found Crystalinks, I was looking for information on the center of the earth and found an article here about the crystal core. Then after back-tracking the url I found so much more! I just always seem to be lead to information like this and am so thirsty for it sometimes I think I'd die of thirst, especially during these times towards the end/beginning I'm just on pins and needles. It feels like I'm on a roller coaster creeping so very slowly towards the top and screaming hurry up already! Yet at the same time I have this sense that I've already ridden the roller coaster and arrived at my destination. It's such a strong sense that everything around me often seems unreal.
Just like Shakespeare said, "Life is but a waking dream". Still, it would be nice for my five senses and my other senses to line up already, I just can't stop thinking about what we'll all create next!
Thanks, and see you all on the flip side!

I think I'm already there.
Trees have always had deep-rooted symbolic meaning in every culture.
Forests are the abode of the nature spirits, a refuge from
danger as well as a source of dangerous wild animals.
Forests are mysterious and constantly changing.
Tree symbols contain multiple mythic qualities. The 'deep-rooted' symbolism is apparent in common metaphors such as the tree of life and our ancestral heritage depicted in family trees. In Vedic philosophy, the symbolism of wood claims this element as the primal material of the universe. Christian art depicts Christ as the cosmic carpenter and His ultimate sacrifice is represented by a wooden cross.
Story 1: Egypt Overexposed
Email from Dee in San Francisco
Time is sure flying and everything is shifting and changing at warp speed. The current crisis in Egypt is on my mind and in my heart and prayers so intensely these past few days - friends and loved ones sending me their reports from the thick of everything in Cairo. It reminded me to never lose sight of the magic that is orchestrating all of this collective awareness in our holographic world.
I was uploading photos from my trip to Egypt, onto my website Deeva, when my internet connection froze. I was totally blown away by what was on my screen! The Sphinx and the Great Pyramid were aligned with my face.
Blessings and love,

Dee in Egypt - September 2010

The situation in Egypt is a microcosm of the global macrocosms that will continue to deteriorate in 2011 especially in the Arab world. It is an example of how bad it is going to get. It is also a reflection of the chaos at the beginning of the program ... when it all began .. and the way it all ends. I wonder how this will affect the areas around the famous archaeological sites. The balance of power is about to shift. Let's sees how this crisis affects our situation at home. I've been to Egypt. The old ways are gone ... How about in your life?
Story 2: Charging It ....
Perhaps you could shed some 'light' on this .... I have always known there was a program, since I was a little girl. Over time, I grew up and a friend suggested we dumb ourselves down as we age, but maybe we open ourselves up to other ideas. Anyway, I have always had mystical things happen around and to me. And, like you I was raised and consider myself to be Jewish. I came across your website a few months ago and enjoy reading your blog with my Turkish coffee daily.
There is something that I have always been curious about, but have not been able to find on your website. My mother is like electric. She has had 5 different cell phones in the past year: cell phone devices and carriers. They never work! It is so strange to me, but almost anything electronic messes up in my mother's presence. She asked me, "Do you have a signal"? and I do, but yet if I give her my phone it won't work. Television, DVD players, computers - if she uses them they malfunction. Are there people who conduct electricity? Do you know what is happening to her? By the way, my mother is pretty balanced and almost childlike in many respects...she does not drink, smoke or take drugs.
Anyway, I hope you are enjoying your day!
I have known people who also have a strange connection with electricity, Nikola Tesla for example. (see below). One man sets off car alarms when he walks down the street. Another won't go near my computer because he affects things much like your mother does. I've heard all the stories, but the only explanation I can come up with is an incompatibility of electrical fields, certainly nothing I consider a positive (charge). Imagine having to replace batteries, bulbs, and all things electrical, all the time. I believe this has more to do with physics than metaphysics, but perhaps some of the readers can help you.
Story 2: The Economy
Financial crisis was avoidable: FCIC CNN - January 27, 2011
The financial crisis, which wreaked havoc on the economy and sparked a painful recession, could have been avoided, according to a federal commission. The Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, in its final report on the causes of the crisis, said Thursday that federal authorities, who failed to curb reckless behavior on Wall Street, bear much of the blame for the turmoil that erupted in 2008 and 2009.
Here's Ron's email about the article ...
I agree completely with the article . I was saying all of these things in 2006. I knew we were heading for a financial disaster but nobody would believe it. All of the Wall Street guys I knew said, "We will just figure it out when it happens". It was obvious, people were borrowing home equity to pay off consumer debt and the experts thought freeing up consumers to buy more stuff would get the economy back on track. It didn't happen and consumers used up available credit to pay household expenses and then had no place to get more money. One other thing that really bothered me was in the early 2000's the bankruptcy laws were changed to make it harder to get out of debt. If that doesn't tell you the big banks knew this was going to happen, I don't know what will.
Most people agree with Ron. It is all part of the collapse of the program and was destined to happen as the economy is/was a joke. It simply didn't work. The collapse was overdue. The consciousness that supported the economy is gone. People can't deal with corporate pressure. It goes along with what I blogged above - Things happen in your life as per your programming which should help you understand a lot about the decisions you made that you knew were wrong, but acted on them anyway.
Wednesday night, Jay Leno asked his audience if anyone thinks things are turning around, and no one applauded. Somewhere people get it.
From Darlene in Texas
The economy...Well, it's up. It's down. It's down. It's up. It's all lies. I think that we discussed this a couple of years ago and my thinking (and feeling) on this has not changed. Our federal government is in denial, and we owe a lot of debt, mainly to our good buddies, China. Now I ask you, how would you feel if they sent out their very special collector to get repaid? Some theorize that the U.S. was set up by China. Check out David Li, and also please note that after many institutions adopted his ideas, in 2008 he headed back to China where he works in "risk management" for China International Credit Corp. *Gulp*
Of course, the U.S. and the world were already headed down a dangerous path economically before Dr. Li's theories were put into practice. Let's just say that he helped things along. I worked in financial services, including commercial banking and mortgage lending, and I also reviewed portfolios for a debt resolution firm for several years. I can't tell you how many files that I had to kill for collection because I could find NO PROOF of who originated or really owned the paper. This was about 10 years ago, so I am not surprised at anything that is coming out now. I happened to work for a firm that insisted on doing things legally, my job was due diligence, and we were not willing to pursue people for commercial or other interests (FDIC. RTC, FNMA) unless we knew that we had all that we needed to pursue people and settle, preferably out of court.
Here in Texas, which is in a serious budget crisis, our legislature's number one concern, and deemed an "emergency" by our governor is voter ID. Not kidding. It was the first thing on the lege's agenda as this session started earlier this month---not the 27 billion dollar shortfall that will mean huge changes in services and education, as well as state and local jobs. I think that our governor and state representatives are in la, la land on this, and voter ID is just another distraction for much more serious matters. Let them eat cake.
