AOL Bulletin – 15th June, 2016 – Solstice Openings

The aim of this week’s newsletter is to remind us that we live in exciting times

FYI – Portals

Pay Attention

Anna Merkaba’s newsletter was sent through to us this week giving us a heads up to what is being predicted.  Here is an excerpt from Anna’s newsletter…

june21 - anna merkaba” I was told that in the weeks to come many of you, are going to be meeting with your guides, in person on earth, in meditations, in your dreams, some of you will even be taken aboard ships and imprinted with various information via light language which will later be activated when the time is right and translated within your brain so that you can then take appropriate action. Many of you may experience lapses of time, missing time, sudden depression, odd sensations, forgetfulness, disorientation, or complete inner knowing. You may feel prompted to leave your home and go somewhere else. Call a friend you haven’t called in a while, visit a place you’ve never thought of going before, etc., etc., all of these will be ways of your guides communicating with you and leading you to your own juncture points from where you will be able to select the next stages in your ascension process.”

Why Do We Need Our Earth Connection?

Heaven on Earth - Jacaranda HavenWe asked Ocha Sheehan to write a little something about her thoughts on our need for connection to the Earth.  Here is an excerpt from the article we have posted in our online Library – read here.

For to speak of the Earth Mother’s heart is to include the collective heart of humanity, because there are many worlds held within her, and we are one of those worlds. Each human being is like a very large tree energetically, which is why the trees are so important to us on many levels. We have a root system made of light that is unique in its shape and connects us to the energy system of the Earth. Through this we share the life support system of love, light and creation with Gaia for our health and well being. This includes prana, plasma, life force, creation codes, inner guidance, the anchoring of our energy and a foundation from which to safely grow and express our true self.

Meditation Portal

Peace meditationOne of the many miraculous functions of meditation is that it is a portal to a different dimension.

When you go deeply into the meditative state, your awareness detaches itself from the thought-stream. Then your identification with emotion, memory, time and body begins to fall away. You become aware of something very mysterious. Imagine that you had been fast asleep in a small dark chamber and then you suddenly awakened to find yourself floating in the infinite depth of a vast, peaceful ocean. You literally become aware of a new dimension, when moments before you had experienced yourself as being trapped, a prisoner of your body, mind and emotions. When you awaken to this new dimension, all sense of confinement disappears. You feel that you have access to the whole universe and also to that which the universe exists within. You’re aware of body, mind, time, and space, but there’s another dimension that extends in all directions, unlimited by any of it. Meditation is the portal to this dimension, a door to the realization of limitlessness.….Andrew Z. Cohen  EnlightenNext Magazine. 

The following is a beautiful relaxing meditation – 30 minutes of bliss – go deep into another dimension and leave all your troubles behind in the 3rd.  To listen Click Here

Winter Solstice And Earth’s Portals

Ocha -Chakra-activationOcha Sheehan

This is a very important time in creation. The 20th June is the full moon in Sagittarius, and the next day, 21st June is the Winter Solstice and the transition between Gemini and Cancer. Ocha has much to pass on at this time of the full moon in Sagittarius and Winter Solstice and what this means to us.

Ocha has just returned from 3 weeks in Egypt where she was in deep ceremony in the Kings Chamber of the Great Pyramid and on the Nile, and tonight she will share with us the role of these keystone portals in the Earth’s light body system and their connection to Uluru/Kata Tujuta.

The portals are upgrading now, (there was a 6.1 earthquake at Uluru around the 21st May.)
She will guide us to receive from these portal upgrades in a meditational journey. By connecting to these 2 keystone portals, you can receive all the assistance that you need to open to your Higher Self and higher bodies of light from the heavens and the Inner Earth.

Ocha SheehanOcha is currently teaching ‘Opening to Earth’ in Sydney and other parts of Australia, as well as New York and New Zealand, and will be offering these teachings again later in the year. As a Mentor of the Divine University, she will soon announce the launch of a special series of teachings to activate and ground your higher consciousness in concert with the Earth Mother, Gaia.
You are welcome to join her monthly new moon webcasts, Into the Earth Portals, by subscribing to her News and Events emails on this website –

Ocha Sheehan – From the Earth to You – 061 (0)411 575604 –

An Added Extra: An email came in to us when Jen heard that Ocha was going to Present. She says:
I am so very blessed to have met Ocha, last year, when she was a guest speaker at The Academy of Light. For me it was a truly magical night where, with Ocha’s Sounding and Speaking during the evening, something deeply resonated with me. I remember thinking that night that if Ocha ever offered a course or workshop then I would attend and here I am just over half way through Opening to Earth. Ocha is an amazing Mentor/Teacher and I am very excited to see her back as a guest speaker at The AOL. In heart, Jen.

Ancestral ET’s and Quantum Entanglement

Wilpena PoundFiona Reynolds & Mark Greathead

There is so much disinformation flying around at this time that it’s hard to know what is still true. However, there have been so many sightings, and much corroborative footage taken from the various satellite telescopes such as LASCO, SOHO and SECCHI. It has been stated that the larger discs on the outer edge of the field (they will show in the diagram) are Andromedan biospheres acting as transducers of the huge energy surges coming in from galactic centre, stepping them down so they don’t fry us all.The latest reports state that the need for the big “deflector” biospheres has lessened as Earth and all who sail on it have become more acclimatised to the high frequency surges, so they have moved away.

Fiona ReynoldsFiona’s varied career in numerous areas from Federal Politics to Film production led to a stint of four years living within the outback vortex of Grid point 44, during which time some  ‘high strangeness’ came about. That useful phrase by the way was coined by, we believe, by Martin Plowman, Australian author of “The UFO Diaries”.

Mark GreatheadMark’s background as an Equine Vet has led to exciting new ways to enable people to take back responsibility for their health, such that all, including the 3rd world can access this.

Fiona and Mark met up – again – in 2007, recognised past lives together, including nine previous marriages and promptly threw all their resources into a private humanitarian foundation with a view to do all possible to benefit all beings on the planet and beyond. Their website is, but it only reveals the most basic of their activities, since most are far too weird to make public.

In 2013 they were guided by spirit to purchase an old farm property on a mountainside as an Embassy for first contact and this is now functioning well. It is on an energy line to Stonehenge, they were told by a neighbour. It houses a newly activated portal and is the ideal location to tackle with quantum pathways through meditation that part of the “job too big” which remains – ie to assist in the raising of humanity’s consciousness by removing various blockages. They are finding that what is written or clearly stated with good intent moves into the Causal Realm and will manifest when the time is right. That time appears to be right now.
As discussed they will cover their ET experiences, an array of knowledge accumulated / remembered and How this relates to each of us as we awaken to Our True, Divine Identities…….’Hang on to your hats…..its a wild ride! “spooky action at a distance” was a phrase coined by Einstein to describe the virtually indescribable!

Academy of Light LogoWith Rosemary Butterworth

We hope you all enjoyed your holiday weekend.  I know John and I did as we had extra days at Jacaranda Haven.  The 2,000 cloves of garlic are up and now need weeding. We also planted 4 kilos of potatoes while we are waiting for more seed potatoes (Dutch Creams) to arrive.  I am not quite sure what we are going to do with all these potatoes.  I am hoping some of you will enjoy farm fresh, organic potatoes in the coming months.  You might need to bring a shopping bag on Monday Nights!

Big News from the Vatican – at last Mary Magdalene is acknowledged~ to read more click below.


The Vatican has declared that the official feast day of St. Mary Magdalene, the ´Apostle of the Apostles´ will be held on the 22nd of July. Her liturgical memorial is usually celebrated then, but for the first time it will be elevated to a feast day, on par with other Christian saints. The Vatican´s official statement cites her special status in Jesus´life and teaching and officially recognizes her as the one who first saw Christ arise from his tomb.

To quote Archbishop Arthur Roche, secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacrament:
“Precisely since she was an eyewitness to the Risen Christ, she was also the first to testify before the apostles. She fulfils the mandate the Risen Christ gives her: ‘go to my brothers and say to them … Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord”—and that he had said these things to her’. In this way she becomes, as is already known, an evangelist, or rather a messenger who announces the good news of the resurrection of the Lord; or, as Rabano Mauro and St. Thomas Aquinas said, ‘apostolorum apostola’, as she announces to the apostles what they in turn will announce to all the world.”

Looking forward to seeing you all next Monday 20th June with Ocha.

Thought Of The Week

The zero-point which resides at the centre of the human heart is the most powerful factor in the entire Universe.  Containing the majesty of all that is revealed to us through our infinite capacity to dream…to manifest…to love.  It is the key, the arc, the grail, the cross… and the Beloved.

Affirmation – say daily, feel it, believe it…

“I Align to the New Earth Consciousness with ease.”

HEALTH TIP – The Antibacterial Quality of Honey

BeeIt is well known that honey has strong antimicrobial effects.

If we open the old dusty books on folk medicine, we will notice that honey is applied mainly externally when it comes to its bactericidal and bacteriostatic properties. However, is it possible to take advantage of those upon its consumption as well?

Yes, of course. The solution is very simple.  Keep the honey as long as possible in the oral cavity, preferably under the tongue.  Crystallised honey is quite suitable for that purpose. Thus, part of the antimocrobial honey components are absorbed while still in the mouth which makes the consumption much more complete.  Another advantage is that so consumed honey destroys a considerable percentage of pathogenic flora in the mouth, throat, the nasal passages and the larynx.

When the antibacterial properties of honey are used as a cure for any disease of the gastrointestinal tract, it is advisable to take half ateaspooon of baking soda to neutralize the gastro-duodenal juice.

Make sure your honey is pure and enjoy!

Winter Solstice Labyrinth Walk

This Monday, June 20 at 7 pm

Where: Boori Boori Labyrinth, 1307 Wallanbah Road, Bucca Wanka. (near Gloucester).

Winter Solstice is a beautiful time to connect to the rhythm of the seasons and amplify our intentions for our lives as we connect and honour this season. A time of renewal and listening with awarenss. Boori Boori labyrinth is one of only a few in the world created with sacred geometry that has traditionally been located on sacred sites, power places or energy vortices on Mother Earth. The labyrinth design is named a Classical Labyrinth or 7 Circuit Labyrinth and has been built specifically with the geometry for our land here in the Southern Hemisphere.

The labyrinth is an archetypal symbol found amongst many cultures and countries and has been traced back to the Neolithic ages. It is a symbol of sacred space and walking the labyrinth is considered mindful action. A place where you can release anything that is no longer serving you, a place to deepen your compassion, find your purpose, quieten the mind, seek inspiration, insight and clarity, or for enjoyment and meditation. This sacred tradition of walking the labyrinth is a beautiful metaphor for life and the experience you have will be unique to your journey. There is no right or wrong way to walk the labyrinth.

It is for children, adolescents, the aged and anyone who is open to explore the beauty of the labyrinth.
