"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. …

Elhijab Presents Fresh, Modern Collections for Ramadan and Idul Fitri 2016

Jakarta. Indonesian Muslim wear is getting more simple and modern. Gone are the complicated frills and ruffles that tend to bulk up the wearer's physique, as well as the overused crystals and sequins that often astound beholders. In their place are clean-cut items that are tasteful, easy to wear and practical for everyday use.

Last Sunday (29/05), Elhijab, the company behind the Dauky, Elzatta and Aira Festive brands, presented their special pret-a-porter collections for Ramadan and Idul Fitri 2016 at the "Hijab for the World" fashion show at Jakarta Convention Center.

"We want to present our brands as the pride of Indonesia for the world, just like H&M for Sweden, Marks & Spencer for UK and Uniqlo for Japan," said Meta Kamelia Surya, head of marketing of Elhijab.

In the fashion show, brand Dauky showcased a collection themed "City of Harmony."

"We're inspired by London's streetwear for the collection," said Puspa Sekar Sari, Dauky's head fashion designer.

The collection is made of tailored culottes, palazzos, faux leather jackets and overcoats in warm, summery tones. Elzatta's scarves with simple, yet attractive geometric patterns complemented their modest looks.

"We want to cater for today's modern women with our simple and wearable pieces," said Puspa.

The same collection has also been presented on the previous day (28/05) at the Potter's Field Park in London during the "Indonesian Weekend" event.

"According to our representatives [in London], the British people adored our collection," said Elhijab's head of marketing, Meta.

Aira Festive, on the other hand, presented more mature and feminine looks in the fashion show. Their collection is made of plain and loose-fitted tunics in various hues and silhouettes. These tunics were combined with batik, tenun (handwoven traditional fabrics) and ikat (traditional tie-dye) sarongs and pareos for the fashion show.

"Tunics are usually very casual," said Aira Festive's head fashion designer Nina Natadipura, "But, we want to show that we can also make tunics look more classy and elegant by pairing them with Indonesian traditional fabrics."

Their collection also features chic evening gowns, adorned with lace and brocade, for formal functions.

Aira Festive's, Dauky's and Elzatta's collections are moderately priced between Rp 199,000 ($15) and Rp 600,000. They are available now at Elhijab's outlets in major cities in Indonesia.
