"The Recalibration of Awareness – Apr 20/21, 2012 (Kryon channeled by Lee Carroll) (Subjects: Old Energy, Recalibration Lectures, God / Creator, Religions/Spiritual systems (Catholic Church, Priests/Nun’s, Worship, John Paul Pope, Women in the Church otherwise church will go, Current Pope won’t do it), Middle East, Jews, Governments will change (Internet, Media, Democracies, Dictators, North Korea, Nations voted at once), Integrity (Businesses, Tobacco Companies, Bankers/ Financial Institutes, Pharmaceutical company to collapse), Illuminati (Started in Greece, with Shipping, Financial markets, Stock markets, Pharmaceutical money (fund to build Africa, to develop)), Shift of Human Consciousness, (Old) Souls, Women, Masters to/already come back, Global Unity.... etc.) - (Text version)

… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Rezai Takes Pride in Bali Win

Nusa Dua, Bali. One French star enjoyed a successful end to the season, while another saw her year end in pain.

Aravane Rezai emerged victorious in the Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions final on Sunday after Marion Bartoli withdrew with a quad strain. Rezai, who won the first set 7-5, pocketed $200,000 and her second title of the season.

“It’s a big surprise and I’m very sorry for [Bartoli]. I hope it’s not a big injury,” Rezai, 22, said after the all-France final. “But in tennis there is a winner and a loser, and I’m happy to be the winner today.”

Rezai’s winner’s check nearly doubled her season earnings, having won $333,076 going into the tournament at the Bali International Convention Center. Her other victory came in Strasbourg, France.

“This victory means so much to me. This only proves that I can be a much better player on the tour,” she said.

Bartoli broke Rezai’s serve in the fifth game to go up 3-2 and had the first set in sight when she led 5-3. Rezai held serve for 5-4, though, and broke back in the next game to level the set.

Rezai led 6-5 and 15-40 when Bartoli suddenly stopped chasing a ball and limped off the court, asking for treatment. After being tended to by the tournament doctor for 15 minutes, she returned to the court and served up a double-fault, handing Rezai the set.

Soon after, Bartoli told the referee she could not continue and withdrew from the final. She said after the match she started to feel the pain in the middle of the first set and it kept getting worse.

“I started to feel some pain all over my quad. And if I put some weight on my leg, it got worse and in the end I couldn’t continue. I really tried as hard as possible,” said Bartoli, who earned $100,000 as runner-up. “The last thing you want to do is injure yourself in the last match of the season, but what can I do?”

Bartoli’s withdrawal because of injury was her seventh this season, the last coming in October in the Japan Women’s Open.

“I’ve always been having some small injuries, even when I was a junior. My body is strong in a way, but not that strong. Sometimes I’m breaking down because I try so hard on the court but my body can’t follow up,” she said.

Bartoli, who also lost in the 2006 final to Svetlana Kuznetsova, said she has no plans to return to the court for at least three weeks. She closed out her season with titles in Monterrey, Mexico, and Stanford, California, and runner-up finishes in Brisbane and Bali. Tennis
