Australia Day ~ The Homeschool Way

Today is January 26th, 2013, otherwise known as "Australia Day" here in Australia.

I think back to when the kids went to public school and what they were taught about Australia Day from the schooling system. They would come home with decorated Australian flags and a map of Australia where they had drawn a ship with the dotted lines as the ship made its way to Australia.

The kids were taught about navigator and astronomer Captain James Cook , that claimed the whole of the east coast of Australia for Great Britain on 22 August 1770, naming eastern Australia 'New South Wales'.

However, Australia was already home to over 250 indigenous tribes. These tribes, were the "first Australians"

As homecshoolers, we are now able to take our time and research deeper into the possible meanings and history behind "Australia Day" ......... Lets take a closer look.

In 1787, King George III sealed Australia’s fate by declaring it Britain’s new convict colony. Being sent to Botany Bay was a severe punishment. Sentences ranged from a minimum exile of seven years to life, with varying degrees of hard labour.

Basically, Australia became a dumping ground for Britains convicts. Aboriginal tribes were forced to re locate. New babies were born - the half caste - as a result of rape. Many Aboriginal children were removed from their families and were taken away to be "educated" in the white mans ways. These children are known as "The Stolen Generation"

There are many other points to be researched for "Australia Day" but I share only the above. By all means, do your own research and come up with your own conclusions.

I cannot change the past, but I can certainly help to alter the future.

Today in Australia, I believe the governments still do not understand the simplicity that life has to offer. Governments, worldwide, continue to take, take, take but now, as One People, we have the technologies and resources to help governmnets understand that enough is enough.

Here are a few things that some governements are up to, along with links to petitions to let them know that we are One and it is time for the old paradigm to fall as we continue making way for the New ~ the Love ~ the Peace ~ the Unity for all humanity, nature, animals, ~ ALL

In Australia, on this day of January 26th 2013, we have the

Great Barrier Reef underthreat of being dredged up even more to make way for Coal Seam Gas .......

The 40 million year old Tarkine forest under threat of being excavated for mining companies

Lets take a look at whats happening globally on this day, January 26th 2013

Amazon: Oil showdown
Harper: Rights for first nations
Uganda: Stop horrific gay law

Way back in the 1700's, Australia was "taken" and claimed and controlled. Governmnets continue to try and "take", claim and control ............ and the more of us that speak up, the more of an impact we will have to save our planet!

"The Sky People have sent us a message... that they can take whatever they want. That no one can stop them. Well, we will send them a message. You ride out as fast as the wind can carry you. You tell the other clans to come. Tell them Toruk Macto calls to them! You fly now, with me! My brothers! Sisters! And we will show the Sky People... that they cannot take whatever they want! And that this... this is our land!" ~ Jack Sully ~ Avatar

January 2013 Energies

I am in love with these energies of 2013 <3

Life is just "falling into place" for me. Action thoughts have come to me and I am acting on them. The whole process seems effortless. Like it is meant to be. And fun. I am injoyin the whole process of where these action thoughts are leading me <3 I trust. And soon my thoughts will become manifest.

Self sabbotaging, negative thoughts die within 3 seconds of being born. I watch as my mind has one negative thought and then, like a duster on a chalk board, it is wiped away. I smile. I have an inner duster that wipes away negative thoughts.

I continue to learn about the world to find my own truths. Yes, some of the things I choose to learn about can be seen as horrible events upon the world ~ and I learn, without judgement ~ knowing that I too, have helped co-create every large outcome.

My heart lights up, my inner spark, as I send love to all involved. Love to the governments, the military, the elite, the "systems" ~ Love ~ I have become Who-I-Am because of what I have chosen to grow through. I grow through all of this.

Through all of the old ways, the old paradigms, the old habits ~ I grow, in every moment, through it all. I send It all love and the courage for those ways to "let go". I am not angry. I have no fear. I do not judge. I see everything as "Just Is" and I know that the Is-ness of everything, is Changing, as am I. I smile.

I see my family through different eyes. My husbands skin, his smile, his soft loving eyes and gentle touch. I "see" this, and as I "see", I also "receive". My childrens laughs and ideas, their courage and strength, their warmth and hugs. I "see" this ..... and as I "see", I also "receive". I see so much love in all things. ALL things.

It is only 20 days into the beginning of 2013. This is just so amazing. I am filled with awe. I feel so at peace. So calm and peacful, happy and relaxed. There is no rush. No anxiety. It just Is.....

...... and I am in love with the Is-ness of it all xox I only hope that you have found a way To Be as well.

Much love to you dear reader

Imagination is More Important Than Knowledge

Only moments ago, I watched my 2 children from the kitchen window as they quickly tip toed across the back yard, holding, what looked like, small cardboard boxes containing Brat dolls ....... they were on some kind of adventure.

I remember back to when I was 9. It was a 3 hour drive to my sisters place so we would stay for a weeks or so when ever we visited. Up the road from my sisters place, there was a small forest where I would go and play. I made friends with the walking tracks and the trees. Especially one tree in particular.

At first glance, my 9 year old eyes absolutely knew, that this tree was The One. It was a simple tree but it had branches that were in all "the right places". Little "steps" and "nooks and crannys" that would become my tree home away from home.

I made my lounge room, dining area, and kitchen. The branches were set in such a specific way that only a 9 year old could see. Huge leaf cups and plates, little toys made from nature and paperbark drawings to decorate my new "home". I would spend hours upon hours there in my own little world. My own little "reality"

On another visit, I took my neices and nephew to visit my tree home. I showed them each "room" and they immediately knew what went where - and every visit after that, us kids, we just "knew".

I remember that "knowing" feeling very well. I also remember re-visiting the forest many many years later as an all knowing, egoic, too proud teenager. I couldn't even find the tree. My eyes had changed.
 And so I went through my life like that - blindly - for the next 25 years.
But I am here now. And now, as an adult, I Know again. I am Re-membering. I am Awakening. I am Imagining. I am Dreaming once again.

ISS, Flying Objects In The Sky

Today is the 3rd January 2013. A friend sent us an email saying that the ISS was making its pass over tonight and we should be able to see it!
HoLy. MoLy! ! ! We all went outside in the dark to see if we could see the International Space Station as it made its pass over from north west - we saw it from the back yard and then ran thru the house to see it from the front yard - we got more than we bargained for!

As we followed the ISS to the north east, another very distant flying object caught our eye ....

and then another one .......

...and another one .......

and another one ......... we stopped counting at 10 flying objects. Definitly not planes. Some were moving VERY fast. Others a little slower and others flashed in a streak and disappeared. I have only now just shut my gaping jaw!

I sit here shaking my head in Awe. Like I said - HoLy, MoLy! ! ! ♥
I just thought this was worth sharing - could this have possibly been my first "encounter"?
Im still gob smacked! I am without thought! Not sure if my rational mind wants to step in or if Im just still in a state of  Duh! Holy moly alright!!!!!!!! bAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Im soooo excited right now :)
What a great night!
