"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. …

Valentine’s Day gifts a hit among the young

Giving presents on Valentine’s Day remains popular among young people in Indonesia’s big cities as they believe the day is special. 

“Despite pros and cons of giving presents on Valentine’s Day discussed among various circles, giving a gift to the loved one on the day is more special for me than on other days,” Doni, a senior high school student in Pangkalpinang, Bangka-Belitung province, said over the weekend.

He said he gave a colorful doll to his girlfriend on Saturday. 

“Love has a broad meaning, not only for the girlfriends, but for everyone including parents. But at the moment Valentine’s Day focuses just on the girlfriend,” Doni said, as quoted by Antara news agency.

Doni’s sentiments were shared by Ziska, another high school student, who said he had arranged a special moment with his girl. In Banyuwangi, East Java, youth were busy preparing presents for their special ones the day before.

Ari, a vocational high student in Banyuwangi, said, “I gave my girlfriend a doll worth Rp 32,000 (US$2.9).

In Surabaya, East Java, flower sellers on Jl. Kayoon felt the windfall from Valentine’s Day.

“This week we’ve been very busy serving customers,” Ina, the owner of Inafem flower shop in Surabaya, said Saturday.

Roses are the traditional token for Valentine’s Day,  but not everyone is celebrating. In Yogyakarta 100 Gadjah Mada University students, from the  Campus Proselytism Institute Forum, staged a rally on campus Friday, opposing the celebration of Valentine’s Day, as, they said, it tainted the holiness of love.

In Bandung, West Java, a local chapter of the Indonesian Ulema Council issued an edict, stating celebrating Valentine’s Day was haram, or not permitted by Islamic law.
