Lynne Allbutt: The times they are a-changing indeed

Gosh, we are on the brink of September already  – time really does seem to be speeding up.

This is just one of the fascinating topics  Gregg Braden spoke about at the Conference of Consciousness and Human Evolution that I  attended last weekend. It was a fabulous gathering with great big helpings of wisdom to chew over and digest. 

As EO Wilson, the entomologist and biologist well-known for his acclaimed work on  evolution and sociobiology, said: “ We are  drowning in information, while starving for  wisdom.

“The world henceforth will be run by synthesisers, people able to put together the  right information at the right time, think  critically about it and make important choices  wisely.” 

One of the weekend’s recurring themes at  the conference  was that, as a nation, we are waiting for things to “go back to normal”, or  how they were about four or five years ago. 

Many people are getting more and more  stuck, confused and inert as they wait for this to happen.

The new message was: “The world of the  past has gone, a new world is emerging. There  is no going back and until we realise and  accept that things are changing, adopt an  attitude of trust and embrace change itself, we  will continue to feel increasingly challenged,  stuck and bewildered by events.”

Many people are currently experiencing  unexpected and painful circumstances, which  leave them disoriented.

These challenges are actually designed to steer  us toward our divine path and our true purpose   in life.

The sooner these challenges  can be accepted  and the divine guidance implemented, the  smoother and easier the eventual transition will  be.

I have often spoken about the benefits of reconnecting with nature and the outdoors and it  is more important than ever now.

There is scientific evidence to show our mood  lifts when we are out in the fresh air, surrounded  by negative ions (which have a positive effect)  and adapting our vibrations and frequencies to  that of our natural surroundings.

Pearls of  wisdom

Healer and author Dr Eric Pearl was as   controversial as ever at the conference, but I  must admit I respect his attitude.

The founder of Reconnective Healing states  that we all have the innate ability to heal,  especially ourselves. He advocates being  lighthearted (a good antidote for heartache) and retaining a sense of humour in our endeavours  for a happy and healthy life.                     

His words reminded me of a friend’s advice  years ago: “Wear life like a light cloak.” 

I believe we must learn to take responsibility  for our actions, for health and for our words.

We are amid great evolutionary changes and  the lighter and more compassionate we are can be with ourselves  and others and new situations, the better for all. We need to reconnect with each other, reconnect with ourselves and reconnect with nature.  

Dr  Pearl has a weekend workshop in London  from November 22-26, which I can highly  recommend.  Visit

Lonely hearts

One of the biggest killers in the West is heart  disease and that often starts with heartache,  which in turn is brought about by not  remedying painful situations and experiences. 

Studies show that heart disease is  strongly  linked to loneliness and a feeling of not  belonging or being excluded. 

Gregg Braden also spoke of his extensive  experience of living and working with various  tribes and elders and believes that one of the  reasons  many of   these people reach such  great ages is due to the fact they have organic  community support by belonging to a tribe.

To think loneliness and social exclusion can  lead to death is shocking but not surprising. 

The ancient Essenes taught that our human  bodies are actually designed to be able to  function for around 900 years but – wait for it   – they also claimed that the first 100 years  are the hardest as that is when we encounter  the greatest emotional pain and hardship by  inevitably losing everything that is dear to us  – people, pets, lifestyles etc.

Gregg shared photos and documentation of  medicine women who were over 130 years old  and I was reminded of my own great-aunt who  lived (in Cardiff) to 108 years old and was as bright as  a button when she passed away. 

She spanned three centuries, remembered  the Titanic sinking and I don’t remember  hearing her speak negatively about anyone or  anything – she was also a keen gardener,  loved the outdoors and kept bees.

Author and speaker Lynne McTaggart spoke at the  conference of how we have become fuelled by  competition and conflict and how nature can  teach us that collaboration and co-operation is  a far better option.   In her latest book, The  Bond, she explores the benefits of considering  others’ needs and of prioritising what you can  do for others rather than focusing on self-gain. 

Global warning

I was interested to learn that reports in the  journal Nature in 1987 included graphs that  showed that, although our climate was changing  and global warming was very real, it was not  caused by increased amounts of carbon dioxide. 

The graphs clearly showed that the increased  temperatures preceded the increase in carbon  dioxide.

These are both changes that warrant  exploration in their own right. Levels of carbon  dioxide certainly need addressing, but it does  also suggest that  humans are not contributing  significantly to global warming itself and that it is  a cyclical phenomena that has been experienced  before. 

Recently more reports are suggesting the same  phenomenon.

Another recurring topic at the conference was  the effect that the sun has on our planet,  atmosphere and even people’s moods.  

I strongly believe in the benefits of Lunar  Gardening, or gardening with the cycles of  the moon.

When the moon is in its waxing phases,  the increasing amount of moonlight  stimulates leaf growth and as the moonlight  decreases the above-ground leaf growth  slows down and roots are stimulated again –  although admittedly the lunar cycle doesn’t  always fit in with my busy work schedule!

But I’ve never considered the effect of  sunspot cycles, which can dramatically  disturb the earth’s geomagnetic field. 

In her extensive research, Lynne McTaggart  discovered that many behavioural  issues  intensified during the 11-year sunspot cycles.   Incidents of violent crime, admissions to  psychiatric hospitals and even traffic  accidents increased, indicating  acute changes  in the nervous and psychic character of  humanity.

In his book The Secret of Life, Georges  Lakhovsky offers the explanation: “The sun is  one of Earth’s primary sources of cosmic  radiation.

“While the sun does produce its own  radiation, solar winds actually capture passing  cosmic dust and radiation and blow it into the  Earth’s atmosphere.

“While it may seem frightening to some,  this can actually be considered the primal  vibration that sets the cells vibrating with vital  force.

“This is the prana, that cosmic breath,  which is meant to vitalise man, and is the  source for our evolution.”
