"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. …

Nova Peris makes emotional maiden speech in Parliament

She is one of Australia's most decorated indigenous athletes, yet Nova Peris says she would give up the medals and accolades ''in a heartbeat'' to see Aboriginal Australians free, healthy and participating fully in all this country - their country - has to offer.

Peris (below) also says her sporting achievements are ''virtually meaningless'' when compared with the triumph over adversity of both her mother Joan and grandmother Nora. Australia's first indigenous female to be elected to the Federal Parliament told their stories in an emotional maiden speech in the Senate on Wednesday, her face painted with ochre from an ancient site in the Northern Territory.

Wearing a dress of gold silk fabric, Peris urged her fellow MPs to become champions of the push for recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the constitution.

She also vowed to expose those ''totally unscrupulous people'' who try to use the misery of some indigenous people to promote their own agendas. With her mother and other family members watching from the public gallery, Senator Peris told how Nora Peris, a proud Giga woman, was torn from her mother's arms and lived on the mission of Moola Bulla in the east Kimberley.

''When the Second World War hit, the kids were released from the mission and for two years she walked and lived off the harsh Eastern Kimberley land,'' she said.

It was there she met Johnny Peris, a Yawuru man. They had 10 children, four of whom were taken away and sent to Garden Point Mission on the Tiwi Islands.

''One of the four children who was taken and is here today is my mother, Joan Peris. She lived on the mission for eight years, she worked every day and never received a cent in pay.''

Senator Peris described herself as a fierce advocate for Aboriginal people being taught to read and write English, but added: ''Of course, we should never be forced to renounce our culture … ''

Senator Peris was overcome with emotion several times during the address, but struggled the most when she paid tribute to former prime minister Julia Gillard, who lost some support in the party when she used a ''captain's pick'' to secure Peris a winnable spot on Labor's NT Senate ticket.
