Dear Ground Crew,

         The other day I sent out a notice that I would be having a new message for you today. In that notice I asked the following questions:

    • Have any of you been in a funk, like depression, feeling out of sorts, or experiencing void feelings, such that you felt stuck?
    • Have you been extremely tired?
    • Have you been affected financially? What is your take on people’s finances? Do you believe what is being said in the media about this topic? Do you get a sense that our country is on shaky financial grounds?
    • Are many of the people that you know having major challenges in their lives?
    • What have you been doing that is helping you move through these interesting times?

I want to thank all of you who responded to my query. Here are a few important responses to what is going on with us now:

First response: “Yes dear, the energies have been VERY strong. I ALWAYS feel them, it’s been actually more than 19 years that I do so strongly, amongst other things.

“But speaking of now, It has been harder than usual (never easy in my case) to wake and get up in the morning the whole past week.

“I was told last Spring that I would soon wake up in a totally new reality and what is happening is that this reality makes less and less sense. Still struggling inside with the duality energies (regarding issues with my landlord in particular) but I know that it is me with me, the exterior being only the reflection of the inside, my own scenario and that I need to be the love and the light, the goddess that I am here and now for my reality to change.

“Financially it has been difficult almost all my life so…

“To your questions about extreme tiredness and funky feelings and stuff the answer is a big YES! Not fun. Not at all. Not new though, in my case. My inner strength has kept me afloat, alive, and I am grateful to be in body, as painful (not only physically) as it can be very often.

“So, this reality IS fading out – not quickly enough if you ask me – and we asked to be patient with ourselves and with others, others being us…”

Second response: “Lately I have been feeling tired and not sleeping well. Going through phases of feeling lonely and depressed. Some of this due to doubts that we will really see and feel heaven on earth in our lifetime. Especially when the news is all about greed, violence, and talks of more “boots on the ground”.

“So, what do I do to overcome doubts and change my thinking? I remember what Benu (AA Gabriel) said – that it will happen in our lifetime. I also have been listening to Patty Cota-Robles CD “Return to Christ Consciousness” (Disc 2), which really helps me remember that it takes each one of us to become co-creators with Father/Mother God and make these wonderful shifts in ourselves and on Earth. We really can make a difference if we just TRUST, and care for each other.”

One of my Lightworker friends said,





 What an Astrologer has to say about the Eclipses

Carl Boudreau, an astrologer, sent out a message about the Eclipses. He said “Retrograde Uranus is all over the place.”

I am not an astrologer but what I know is that Uranus is about “the awakener”. All of these energies are here to help us change and move forward to create a new “us.”

“The Sun opposes retrograde Uranus: we are challenged to express our individuality in new, probably uncomfortable, unfamiliar ways. Alternatively, we are being asked to seriously reconsider the manner in which we express our individuality.

The Moon occults retrograde Uranus: the ego tries to completely mask the Higher Mind or the Higher Self. It tries to overshadow the awareness of group needs and aspirations in favor of its own individualistic preferences and expectations.

Within an hour of this occultation, the Sun, in its turn – our conscious, intentional, real-time self – overshadows the reflexive, pattern-bound ego. We are powerfully challenged to break new ground, emotionally, intellectually, behaviorally.

In effect, there is open, energetic conflict, between the spontaneous and innovative Higher Mind and the pattern-bound ego. Our active personality, the Sun, is caught in the middle.

What should guide our personal responses in the moment? The old patterns deeply imbedded in the ego or radically fresh impulses emanating forcefully from the higher mind? The strength of our connection with the Higher Mind will determine how messy this confrontation becomes. And it could get very messy.

But the takeaway message here is that our social identity – that shifting mix of conscious intentional responses, unconscious patterning and flashes of higher insight – is given a good going over. Our identities will be scrambled. The peculiar mix of conflicting impulses, Freudian slips and ambivalent or ambiguous responses we that arise will take a long time to sort out.

We will almost surely not be able to slip back into old patterns, partly because these patterns will have been demolished by Uranus, partly because the eclipses will set us back if we try. On the other hand, if we make the right choice, we will take a giant stride or two forward.

The difference between those who accept the spiritual evolutionary impetus will find themselves that much farther ahead of those who resist it, who try to cling to a deteriorating status quo.

I know we are talking about a Super Moon, a Blood Moon, etc., To me that only emphasizes the finality of this battle between the Higher Mind, as represented by Uranus, and the ego, represented by the Moon. The Moon will give this battle its best shot and if it loses, the loss will be all the more decisive.

Also, finally, whatever else it does, all that retrograde Uranus vs. the Moon energy is bound to leave us shaken and overstimulated. Maybe even a little battered. Be prepared to apply some extra TLC to yourself and your friends. We’re all going to need it, IMO. It could take us awhile to regain our footing.

On the macro-level, this eclipse could cause some VERY confusing headlines. There will be disturbing events whose meaning and implication is very far from clear. Given how thoroughly our motivational process will be shaken, both individually and collectively, it is very hard to predict how anyone will respond, in the near term or the short term. It will be at least as difficult to decide the future path of world events. A lot of very new stuff could start happening.

It will certainly be a very confusing time with mixed signals all around. One of the great challenges we will face as a result of this eclipse will be to find clarity, for ourselves and for the world. That clarity will have to come in large part from our hope and our aspirations for the future. From our faith in ourselves and in the process. Not on any promises or guarantees. And that clarity will all but certainly come slowly.”

Some More Thoughts

One of the outcomes of these big shakeups could be the creation of community. Some people say they are looking for community and that they can no longer afford to live on their own. Is this partly what the fourth dimension is about—coming together in community and unity? We could begin to use our talents to help each other and not to feel so much like “each man/woman for his/her self”. That old theme seems outmoded, third dimensional. Maybe we are no longer supposed to do it by ourselves.

Certainly keeping a strong spiritual practice is paramount. Staying grounded and centered is important along with regular meditation and prayer. Staying in the now moment and being mindful of our thoughts are valuable areas of focus. I don’t know about some of you but the best I feel is when I am meditating and living in the wondrous energies of the Light Realms.

I sense that many of us who might be feeling “out of sorts” are in the process of shifting big issues on the planet. Eckhart Tolle says something to the effect that when you are feeling out of sorts you are transmuting energies exponentially for a lot of other beings.



We are also closer than ever to the Light Beings and the Light Realms. The veils are lifting and that is why beings like Apollo could come into my energy field. Let’s see what he has to tell us today:

Greetings. I am Apollo. I am here to be of service to you and to provide a higher perspective for you.

The first thing I want to talk about is your atmosphere. This means the atmosphere around the earth. Your scientists are not telling you much about it. They don’t even know what to do with the mess that has been created. We are concerned for many reasons about your atmosphere. The earth and life have been harmed by a myriad of technologies, pollution, thought forms, fear based living and bombardment of mind control activities, wars, radiation, and many negative energies. To say that your beautiful earth is contaminated is an understatement.

As you know, as above so below, so the planet upon which you are living is completely disrupted right now. It has to do with the atmosphere along with all of the other astrological and planetary changes occurring. We send stabilizing energies to all of you. Ask us for more assistance when you feel on the edge of your nerves.

Those of you who are on the spiritual path are even more sensitive to these bombardments. If you have been longtime meditators your nervous systems are like a razor’s edge, which is why some of you are choosing to remain in the background. Many are pulling back and spending alone time while riding through these challenging events.

The earth is preparing for a great awakening. It saddens us to think about how far away the consciousness of the earth has drifted from its spiritual beginnings. The only way for the citizenry to maneuver through these changes is by re-activating and re-claiming their spiritual selves. This is especially true for those in the scientific areas. The energies that are coming now are conducive for people to become re-connected to the Creator. The pathway of Light will open the hearts to a new earth and a new way of living on the earth. The old has to be released on many, many levels.

We love and care about you and want you to know that you are not alone. We helped create the Earth and we want to see her taken back into her original divine creation. You have some work to do and we will help you!

I am Apollo.

The following is a poem from our ground crew member, Leo, in the U.K.:

I Am the Antivirus

I am the antivirus.
I’m here to heal the world,
Infiltrating darkness
My shining light unfurls.
My reflection is a pure one
No judgments mirrored back,
Divinity’s my essence
No poverty or lack.
No need to plough and water
For I’m the holy seed,
Birthing from the ethers
Everything I need.
All who wander on my path;
I see their truth within,
My eyes reflect their holiness,
Unblemished without sin.
Regardless to the masks they wear
Their truth it is revealed,
My antivirus penetrates
And opens up their seals.
Their naked truth is mirrored back
Thus they clearly see,
A soul-to-soul connection
Of the glory they can be.

Big Hug

 Message from Mira from the Pleiadian High Council
through Valerie Donner October 9, 2014

Greetings, I am Mira. I am pleased to be with you today. I understand that some of you would like more definitive information from us.

First, I would like to tell you everything about what is going on with our work with the Earth Council and all of the comings and goings on and around your planet. We are well aware of your desire for information as well as the need for support during these times of chaos and uncertainty. There is only so much that I can reveal because changes are happening constantly and the situation is complex. We work at the request of the Creator. We all have our jobs to do and so do you. We can only reveal what we are allowed to at the time. Please be patient as the divine plan unfolds.

Take a look at your earth’s governments. Do you think for a minute that you are being given all of the information that you need to go about your daily lives? Of course not, they only tell you what they want you to know and most of it is false. There is the intention of instilling control and fear amongst the populace. This is not our intention. We are charged with making contact and spreading our love. We want you to know that we welcome the opportunity to become a part of your daily lives, to live and learn from each other in the oneness of life. This is our future.

We have been around throughout eons of time. We are here on the planet along with other beings from other planets, galaxies and universes. Some of you may notice us or feel our energies to be “different.” We have to fit in like you do for many of our ground crew have felt they have had do to this all of their lives.

You know that we monitor all conditions on the planet. We focus our energies where they are most needed. We are extremely busy right now and have called in additional help. We are employed where there are wars and fighting. We would end all conflict on the planet if this would be allowed. We cannot do this since humanity created this discordance it must learn its lessons to make the necessary changes. If necessary and things become so unstable that they are a threat to the survival of the earth, drastic measures will be taken. We have put various perpetrators on notice. We work with various beings all around the planet. We know what is going on and we are aware of their devious plans.

On the more positive side, we celebrate with you every success, new wisdom, and healing that occurs on all levels. Each one gains a star and reward when peace, love and higher consciousness occur. When upliftment happens and people come to realize they are one and that they need to work together cooperatively we celebrate.

You are making good progress. Right now it might appear that you are stuck in the mud but this is not so. You are just preparing to be spring-loaded into a higher way of living on beloved Mother Earth.

I am Mira sending you love from the Earth Council and the Pleiadian High Council. Remember we are masters of the ascension process on numerous planets in creation. We are with you!

In Conclusion

It feels as if we are in the thick of it. Mercury went retrograde on October 4th until October 25th. We had the Lunar Eclipse on the 8th and will have a Solar Eclipse on the 23rd. We are being tested on all levels and are finding our new selves. Some of us didn’t think it would be this challenging, but what did we know?

Years ago, Archangel Gabriel, (Benu channeled through Karen Cook), told us to make a list of 40 reasons that we love God. I came across my list the other day and understood now why Gabriel suggested this list. We need to stay in full of faith and remember that our Creator will get us through. These changes are being made for our highest good. Most of us don’t like change. This time feels particularly hard, like we have no hand rails to hold onto.

As we squirm and wiggle through we must remember what the angels reminded me of on a license plate the other day: “gigglemor.” It came right when I needed to remember to laugh. We can’t take this all so seriously, even if it means we have to completely change our lives.

I am with you, ground crew. This is part of my work to love and support you through these trying times.

Blessings, love, laughter and Light,
Valerie Donner

 Sessions with Valerie Donner

         Working deeply at the heart soul level, which is where the healing needs to occur, Valerie uses her gifts of clairsentience, clairvoyance, claircognizance and clairaudience. She has been meditating twice daily for over 40 years so this enables her to go in depth from her heart when working with people. She has been doing healing work for 15 years and has helped thousands of clients.

                  She invites her client’s team of their own guides, Archangel, Angels and Masters, as well as her own team such as the energies of the Christ, Mother Mary, St. Germain, Kuthumi, Djwal Khul, the Archangels Gabriel, Uriel, Michael and Raphael, the Native American healers, and others, to be with you when the session starts. As she begins running the energy, information comes to her and she will give you a message. From there the session goes accordingly and includes a combination of spiritual counseling, energy healing, intuitive readings, channeling and teaching. It depends upon the clients’ wishes for the session.

         Valerie works with quantum healing because it is a blend of the spiritual body, mental, emotional and physical body. Disease starts at the spiritual level, goes to the mental, the emotional and then the physical body. She gets out of the way so the energies of our Creator can work through her.
