Straight from the Heart

January 31, 2023


Dear Ground Crew:

Here is the latest from Apollo: “Greetings, I am Apollo. I’m here to check in on you and to check in with you, for much is occurring now on the Earth. Many changes are happening in your lives. We honor you and support you with all of these changes. Right now you are encapsulated with the energies of higher consciousness. This has many people curious about why they are feeling so differently, and why things are not working the way they used to work. This is because everything is changing and higher consciousness means that you know there is something much higher and better for you, a new way of living. We uphold you and your desires for the transformation of the planet and yourselves. We surround your skies. We envelop your hearts with our love and energy, which brings all of us closer to the Creator.  This closeness is what you will need in your new future. After all, ascension is about going back into the heart of the Creator. There is an orchestration of events that will bring you to your desired destination. You are in the process of co-creating the New World. You will be pleased with the results because they are magnificent. Trust this in Divine hands.”

How are all of you doing? Can you feel the acceleration of the light? Do you understand how important it is to be able to go within to trust your heart and what you know is truth? Have you experienced the need to consciously be peaceful and grounded in the presence of others who are not? Are you doing loving, nurturing and caring things for yourself to bring joy and happiness? Is the need for creativity calling out to you? Please realize these are symptoms of ascension. They are combined with physical issues, emotions and thoughts. We must rearrange ourselves because the light is illuminating us at every level. This necessitates we let go of the past and realize our bodies have been holding past life pain. While this is occurring, we are dealing with this crazy imploding 3-D planet. 

January has been a month where we have needed to nurture ourselves. We have tried to find ways to create pleasant, peaceful ways of living. Due to the intense ascension energies many have required more rest. Even the animals are feeling it. We are learning to trust too who we are and to listen to our bodies like never before. We are becoming more aware. Some of us are feeling joy and bliss as we move into higher consciousness. This is the feeling of living in the 5th dimension and higher. You feel a lot of love inside and you radiate that love wherever you go. Other people pick up on your energy and might look at you and smile back at you. You could find yourselves talking to other people, dogs, cats, and kids. It’s about whatever comes your way where you can make a loving connection and find the God within and all around you.

While this is occurring we are having interesting occurrences. The other day I was driving on the freeway and I saw something unusual. It was a golden striped zebra in a roadside pasture. It was beautiful with black and golden stripes. I read an article that said  only 5% of zebras in Uganda don’t have black and white stripes. The golden one was rare and it was beautiful. As we continue on our Ascension journeys some of us will begin to see more golden animals. Won’t that be a treat! It’s how animals appear in heaven on earth.

Speaking of animals, have any of your animals been acting up lately from the energies? My cat was restless yesterday and not handling the energies very well. We need to pay attention to these signs to see what is up with the Earth, sun, or something else. We simply need to pay attention, especially when the animals are acting differently than usual. Check with your friends, and check with your animals, to see what they have to tell you.

In my desire to reside in higher consciousness with peaceful, loving feelings, I like to listen to 432 Hz music on YouTube and I also like to play music for my cat and pet her, especially at night before bed. She even likes to listen to famous singer, songwriter, poet,  Leonard Cohen, because I like him (Particularly, since he is a poet.). In his song called “Anthem”, part of the lyrics in this song are like this: “ . . . There’s a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in . . .” 

These lyrics grabbed me because so many cracks are opening now and the light is getting in more than ever. Have you felt it?  The sun is actively preparing for the solar flash, also known as the love wave. There is a crack in everything, and while the third dimension is imploding upon itself, we are being flooded with light.

Here’s the link for the song: Leonard Cohen Anthem (w/lyrics) London 2008 YouTube:


A Crack in Everything
By Valerie Donner

There’s a crack in everything.
Look around and feel each human being.
Life hasn’t been all that it’s been cracked up to be,
Especially, these last few years numbering three.

Let the light come in
And penetrate the openings.
It’s all falling apart
Because that is what Spirit brings.

It’s like a jigsaw puzzle
That never got completed.
The Earth was consumed
And humanity felt defeated.

The cracks are appearing everywhere.
Let the golden light clear the air.
Wherever there is an opening.
The light can fill the despair.

Human hearts are cracking open.
It’s time for the light to heal the broken.
Much has been said and much has been done.
We now get to heal everyone.

I am grateful for Leonard Cohen’s inspiration. Even though he is no longer here, he continues bringing healing to many hearts and souls.

Another beautiful lightworker for whom I am grateful is Joanna Jinton, an artist from Sweden. After she reached 4 million subscribers on YouTube, she sent the question out to her followers asking them what would they like to tell 4 million people. She received thousands of responses and she shared some in this video that is 53 minutes long. It has responses from beautiful people around the world. If you need inspiration at this time I recommend you watch it and here’s the link:


A Message from Mira from the Pleiadian High Council January 30, 2023 through Valerie Donner

Greetings, I am Mira from the Pleiadian high Council. I speak to you today with reverence and all the love in my heart. I am here to encourage you, and the Earth Council is here to inspire you. We have the best team ever comprised in any ascension process on any planet.

This is because of you, ground crew. You are the best of the best. You are doing an excellent job! Things are starting to get a little jagged and rocky. We are all working overtime to maintain balance and harmony. We recommend you do the same. Keep yourselves in balance and harmony. Restrain from getting caught up in the frenzy of the masses who do not know what is going on. They are looking for love and relief wherever they can find it. Many are opening up and having awakenings. With their discordant behavior they are sometimes awakening to new truths. They are also exhausted from what it takes to maintain life on earth and survive. Many simply want to escape.

We want you to know that the Creator is in charge. This divine plan is bringing out new truths that the dark forces cannot stop. It is part of the great awakening and the homecoming back to Source. Pretty soon you will discover that your main stream news will not have the impact it has in the past because they have been dishonest. A large part of humanity no longer trust their governments, or the media. This is a positive step in the right direction.

We can share with you that you are a part of a brilliant masterful plan for the freedom of the Earth. It is like the ending to a movie that has unexpected events bringing humanity together. This is part of Ascension. It is the rising awareness of perfection, magic and miracles that come from the quantum energies of creation. This plan is toppling the dark ones by increasing their demise. There is simply no more room for them, and there never will be, back on this planet.

We ask you to please assist and help each other as necessary. You are no longer living in the wrong interpretation of the Darwin theory of survival of the fittest. The actual theory is about cooperation and helping each other, not just looking out for one’s self. We’ve already told you that those who are Service to Self will no longer be on the Earth.

You will begin to see more departures from the earth. This is important to remove the dark ones and also to honor peoples’ decisions that they have made with the Creator. We know that many of you have had losses of loved ones. Please be assured they are being given what they need on the other side. Some are truly angry their lives were shortened. They wanted to do other things and to experience more, but it was not their future. They’ve also been signposts to awaken others and many people are starting to realize this fact.

Please stand united ground crew. The best is yet to come!

I am Mira from the Pleiadian High Council looking after you as always. I love you!



Other Information

Galactic Connections


Some of us are experiencing more connection with the galactic’s. They are present. We get connections through our dreams and telepathically. Some of us get visitations where we hear them, or feel them around us. We are accessing a deeper presence of ourselves, who we are and what we will be doing in the future. This is part of the awakening. We see them in the skies. 

You can ask the galactic’s telepathically to show themselves in the daytime or at night. Wherever I see ships, like at Mount Shasta, I will ask them to “Strobe me baby!” Then I will start seeing blues, reds, and green flashes of light. It’s fun! I’ve also asked them to “Go dark!” and I’ve seen them turn their lights off. You can talk to them telepathically. You can meditate and ask them to come and talk to you. Ask them for a name, or ask them for help. Ask for guidance about how you can be more connected to them. They are waiting for us. Sometimes we see flashes of light for confirmation when we say something, or we hear ringing in the ears when a ship is around. Become more galactic because that’s who you are!



Little Esko


Esko, my darling grandnephew who is now four, is having surgery today to replace his skullcap. In October 2021 he was sitting on a park bench in Northern California when a branch from Redwood tree fell 200 hundred feet and crushed the right side of his skull. Starting with his mom and her friend, who are both nurses, they rushed him to the closest hospital and he was airlifted to Children’s Hospital in Oakland California. With all the prayers, love and miracles, the little guy survived and I’m sure he will through his surgery today. I ask you for your continued prayers for Matt and Monica, his parents, and our family, as he goes through his healing. He is improving with his development because the injury put him back about a year. We have so much to be grateful for and thank you, ground crew, for your support and love.

In Conclusion

It is my intention with this message today to bring peace, joy and celebration to you through poetry and music, along with my regular words. We are on our way Home. The galactics celebrate everything and so we’re going to celebrate going back Home into the Heart of the Creator. Here’s a link to this beautiful song from Kenny Loggins called: “Celebrate Me Home”

With love, light, golden zebras and all good things, from my heart to yours,
