AOL Bulletin : 24th April 2019 – Finding the Magic

Rosemary & John Butterworth

We had a wonderful evening forming a group of 33 people to be of service to the earth, to balance her elements connecting to liquid love. Rosemary opened up the evening by asking us all to let go “who we are not” and to clear the words spoken every day, and when we go home to write down what we have experienced here tonight, the colours, the smell, the feelings, the sounds and when we wake up to experience the energy from tonight and ask Archangel Michael “show me what to do today?” and then Rosemary called in her team of Archangels Michael, Uriel, Gabriel, and Raphael, extra terrestrials, Star beings of love and spirit guides and facilitated a beautiful liquid love meditation.

I experienced this liquid love meditation by seeing lots of creamy gold liquid hearts permeating my skin and my heart, I also had indigo and gold swimming like a figure eights between my left and my right hemispheres recalibrating my brain, my body became very hot and I was tingling all over. A couple of people shared their experiences of the meditation. I spoke to “Ulli” who was one of the original members of the Academy of Light and asked Ulli to share her experience of the meditation: “I did experience a lot of different colours as the liquid love was flowing right through us. But the most important thing I felt I saw was an orange circle of light that got more and more illuminated and it turned into very little flickering flames and this voice said keep the fires of your heart burning and keep the fires around this group burning.” (Thank you Ulli).

Rosemary said she was guided to advise us that we should all connect together and meet up occasionally to help balance the elements of the earth as the earth so needs it.

After the meditation it was time for the sound bath to begin, time to receive and absorb the sounds of the ‘Monochord’, being played by Paulien along with her beautiful voice. Paulien: “When I started to tone I saw this huge white figure dressed in robes floating in the hall. The energy was very loving and compassionate and brought tears to my eyes. Later I asked Rosemary if it might have been Jezus, she confirmed it was. How very special!”. Paulien handed the music over to John and the gongs shimmered, it was heavenly. I had my eyes gently closed and was lying down and I could see splinters of white lights dancing expanding and contracting, it was amazing.

John sung a lovely song and went on to express the values on which the Academy was founded:

  1. The only authority is ones heart.
  2. Cooperation not competition.
  3. If all come to give then all shall receive.

A big thank you to everyone who attended on Monday evening and to everyone who contributed to making this evening a success. Thank you Paulien for your devotion and musical contribution and “thank you to Rosemary and John for honouring me with your presence”
