A New Awakening

We of the star systems & planets of the Andromeda, Galactic Council are your  family  &  friends.    We  are  here  to  let  you  know  your planet Earth/Terra and all of your people are about to go through major changes, a major stage of growth,  a  shift-up  in  vibration.   It is a completely new vibration, new higher consciousness & awareness, a new existence… for  the first time in your planet’s history.

The totality of this experience for you will be a cleansing, a rebirth, a transformation.  It will include a transition.  Most important, for the people of planet Earth - it will be a new beginning.  Most important to understand, it is simply a natural evolutionary step.

Though  the  process  has  already  begun, somewhat.   Earth  is about to transform in the near future from its current organic, 3D solid  matter form existence in the 3rd dimension… into the higher levels of a 4D crystalline fine essence matter of the fourth dimension/density reality, the vibratory rate one frequency faster than currently on Earth... as Earth's solar system is crosses the galactic equatorial plane zone of the Milky Way galaxy.

Overall, this new area of 4D, fourth dimensional, and higher, space is a place where matter has far less density & weight, an area of much faster & higher frequency energy vibration.  It is also a dimension where time will no longer have a hold on Earth humans.  From a 4D, fourth dimension, perspective - time does not exist.

In addition, this area of fourth dimensional space also has a 'black hole' with highly charged magnetic energies at its core. Earth's solar system and planet Earth will upon entry of this zone encounter the highly charged magnetic energies of this 'black hole' and feel its effects.  Some of your Earth scientists, astrophysicists, call this area you are entering - an interstellar energy cloud, Galactic or Torsion Energy Wave.

The  speeding  up  of  your  solar  system &  its planets including Earth due to the faster & higher frequency energy vibration rate of this area -  their upliftment into the fourth density resulting in continued geophysical events and additional changes to planet Earth - these changes were projected to start by mid-October 2011.

"The more you know
 The more you will trust
 and the less you will fear"

Time of Transition for Planet Earth
    A Time of Planet wide cleaning, of major governmental, 
    social and Earth Changes

2018 ~ and beyond

A matter of importance.

As you are well aware, 2017 was a year full of incredible challenges, changes, arson fires in California set by beings with an agenda, continued staged 'false flag' shootings around the country [ie. Las Vegas], internal & media political strife due to the choices of President Trump, disclosure of very sick people at the very top of the Hollywood power structure... and more.

I expect what you will see coming in 2018 is the open disclosure of additional very sick, manipulative people/beings [think: "pedophilia"] at the top of the political, religious, media and corporate global elites not only in the United States... but around the world.  This is a very good thing.  They have been hiding in the shadows for far too long; 

You could also think of this time as, to use an old saying, "...its always darkest before the dawn." 

Please also remember, the complete transition, and higher density/dimensional transformation of this solar system, inclusive of planet Earth, is primarily a cosmic evolutionary happening, according to the evolutionary blueprint of planet Earth... as well that moment when 3D human consciousness & awareness reaches its highest potential.

The higher dimensional, transformational shift, of this world, as I have said many times,  is not  based on any particular time or date.  It is simply about the evolution of this solar system inclusive of this planet.   And of course, whatever number of people choose to awaken... and participate in this positive change,  evolutionary process.

The moment of transformation is expected to occur when the greatest number of cosmic events affecting planet Earth ['earth changes'] happens during this era, concurrent with the level of human sentient consciousness & awareness of spiritual life reaches its highest potential apex...  reaches its peak.  

This will happen,  this moment of change to 4D will occur, literally, as  fast  as, in  the  'blink of an eye'.   This change to 4D life will be instantaneous.  There will also be some pockets of 5D, fifth dimensional, vibration, on your new 4D Earth.  But be assured, it will be an even more colorful, far more beautiful reborn place to live as a 4D or 5D world.
Transformation.  This painting is a metaphor for Mother Earth birthing a beautiful new world, in a new higher vibration & frequency.
Introduction to Contact & Visitation
   There are Others in Our Vast Universe
       Who Truly Care about the People of Earth

To assist and prepare all Earth humans to make the step-up, this “upliftment”, in spiritual awareness & consciousness to the 4th dimension as Earth is crossing the galactic equatorial plane -

The Andromeda Council has committed many resources, trained people, ships, counselors, advisors in many areas of expertise, to help Earth people through the various stages of adjustment & growth. They will do this by mentoring, teaching and helping Earth humans to evolve emotionally, intellectually, physically, socially & most important spiritually.

They will remind Earth people of the truth & reality of their own origin as sacred sparks of the Creator / of Creation... as free sovereign souls, free sovereign human beings. ​

They will teach Earth people by example: they will use significant, specific acts of love and kindness, some seen & unseen, for the people of Earth... for their cousins, brothers and sisters on this tiny blue world.

One example of a specific act of kindness is the number of  twelve (12) Andromeda Council biospheres / ships they have committed. These ships will use their combined projected force fields to wrap & envelop planet Earth - to slow the pace of the changes to the planet as much as possible, and to help protect planet Earth, while they also minimize the adjustments, the vibrational cause and effects to this planet during its shift into becoming a 4th dimension world. 

They will share with, and remind, the people of Earth the most important - most powerful creative force in the Universe is LOVE

They will quietly visit Earth and introduce themselves, sharing what their lives are like, who they are, how they live, speaking directly with people on this planet from every walk of life. Very much a reintroduction of old friends and family.

To learn about their contact & visitation -

Now that this final undersea Reptilian base has been cleared out, shut down, cleaned-up, and is no longer operable - this final 'policing' action by the people of Procyon of the Andromeda Council has literally cleared the way for the people from the four (4) Andromeda Council planets (Ventra, Nikotae, Toleka & Ritol) to begin their formal planning to visit the people of Earth.  

To read about the "Contact" of these people with the people of the planet Earth, please go to page 3., "Contact" of this web site: www.andromedacouncil.com/Contact.html .

Also, immediately prior to their visitation, please expect to meet an advanced 'good will' & liaison team of:  Ambassador Tanka Wheneh, Diplomat Maka Nahiweh, and Vice-Chairwoman Tania Piekae of the Andromeda Council - who will be sharing with the people of Earth what they can expect to learn over the extended months of their visit, the true origin of humanity on Earth, the nature of the human soul & spirit, the nature of your changing planet, Earth, and what to continue to expect as it becomes a beautiful fourth dimensional world.

People  of  Earth,  you  are  awakening  and  evolving.  So  too
too  is  your  planet,  she  is  transforming and preparing to birth
herself as a higher dimensional world.

Soon  you  will  rediscover  your  true  cosmic  heritage as  ancestral  children  of  many  human  races  among  the  stars. 

Only  you  can  create  your  future,  open  your  hearts  to  each  other.

As  your  brothers  &  sisters  from  the  stars…  know  that 
 we  love  you.  We  are  all  one.

A New Beginning -  [mid-level] 4D Earth
     A Truly Beautiful Reborn Planet Earth
          New Life as Higher Dimensional Humans  

Once Earth is vibrating in the upper levels of the fourth dimension, Earth's remaining sentient inhabitants, including all humans, will be forever changed. The moment of change to 4D human life will happen in the 'blink of an eye', that fast.  Once changed, people will manifest a variety of natural, multi-sensory abilities as never before experienced in Earth's history. These new abilities include: telepathy, telekinesis, teleportation, and levitation. For all of transformed humanity - human consciousness, human life, will make a quantum leap in evolution.

Humans finally experience and learn first hand about the truth & reality of their own soul, about their true spiritual birth essence & origin. 4D humanity experiences a true spiritual life - complete self awareness and cognition, total memory recall, clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience & greater natural harmony with others.

This will include a complete transformation of your solar system. A complete transformation of the human race on planet Earth. You will now have crystalline bodies, healthy, light filled with virtually eternal life spans. And a beautiful way of living like you have never imagined.

This time in Earth’s history will begin what many have described as a new age of enlightenment, literal spiritual awareness, living, being & consciousness, an age of true human renewal...

back to the origins of what the human race was meant to become, and;

People of planet Earth, you will determine your own destiny, you will make your own conscious choices... you will determine your future.   No one else.

But the difference is, with this evolutionary change, from this time forward, people of planet Earth, now a fourth dimensional race, you will no longer be alone.  

You will now finally truly be reconnected with your brothers, sisters and cousins across the stars in this vast universe full of sentient, intelligent life.  Truly a family & community of intergalactic life.

As you can imagine, it will be more fun for you to reconnect with family you haven't seen in a while. It should make this particular reconnection with your relatives... a once in a 'lifetime' experience, and a new beginning, as you on planet Earth start a whole new & enlightened chapter in your planet's history. 

Welcome to the greater family of humanity thriving across the universe. Mitakuye Oyas'in.  All My Relations.  We Are All Related.  We Are All One.

Adona  is formally announcing her retire-
ment from StarAncestry in order to slow things down and better enjoy these later years of her life.  
IMPORTANT MESSAGE from Keeper of Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe. - Lakota Chief Avrol Looking Horse.

He asks people to "...understand an Indigenous perspective on what has happened in America, what we [Indigenous Native Americans] call “Turtle Island.” 

His words, "...seek to unite the global community through a message from our [Native] sacred ceremonies to unite  spiritually each in our own ways of beliefs... in the Creator. He goes on to say, "...We have been warned from ancient prophecies of these times we live in today, but have also been given a very important message about a solution to turn around these terrible times.

To understand the depth of this message you must recognize the importance of Sacred Sites and realize the interconnectedness of what is happening today, in reflection of the continued massacres that are occurring on other lands and our own Americas."
To the 4,950+ people in 54+ countries around the globe, she thanks ALL OF YOU for your belief & trust in her, and in her higher dimensional, telepathic communication abilities with our literal star family members, especially Azar, the Council's Chief Medical Officer (CMO) responsible for all of the Earth human, soul incarnation records, kept on file on the Council's hospital biosphere ships.

About 4D

Also please keep in mind that 4D, the fourth dimension, is one of a journey inward toward the complete expression of love... love of self and love for each other.  During the course of this evolution toward 4D, toward a life of love, remember to forgive... forgive yourself & forgive others on the way to... opening your heart.

This journey from 3D to 4D can also be expressed as the journey from thousands of years of male/intellectual/logical energy & outward expression focused on the ways of the mind; transitioning to the more gentle expressions of female/giving/intuitive energy focused on... the ways of the heart.  The ways of peace, of giving... of love.

As many sages have said before, as the people of the Andromeda Council have said, "...love is the most powerful force in the universe."

Thank you EVERYONE!   In  EVERY  category 
this conference was a complete success!
On this day, Henry Red Cloud was made a chief at a sacred ceremony at Bear Butte at the lodge owned by the Lakota Rosebud Reservation. Chief Leonard Crow Dog led the Lakota Oyate' in bringing honor to Henry and conducted the ceremony that made him a chief. 

The private portion of the ceremony was performed in the tipi that Henry was born in and now was being reborn into his new role as a chief of the Oglala Lakota Oyate'.
Henry Red Cloud made a Chief of the Oglala Lakota.

What a journey this has been ~ since I formally began the proton & electron light energy therapy treatments, a total of 20 sessions, on the  "Aggressive B cell non-hodgkin lymphoma" cells located in a cyst buried between the trapezoid muscles... on the left side of my neck.

Today, as of January 5, 2021, that cyst, the lump inside the left side of my neck, and all of those cancer cells are now dead & gone... AND, the shape of my neck is finally, now back to normal.

​However, not without the loss of some hair on the upper part of my neck, on the back side of my head.  The 'Doc says it should start growing back in about another 2+ months.  Sheeeeeeeeeesh!  All things considered though, "not a bad price to pay" when one thinks of the alternatives.

That process was about - killing the cancer cells - inside that cyst, a process that was relatively easy.  

Now, 2 weeks later, and moving forward for the next couple of months... my focus is on healing, rest, continuing to eat & sleep right;  getting some warmth and more sun in 'my bones'... and also continuing to drink lots of Sedona-esque  herbal teas.

And therefore, I also look forward to my return to sunny Arizona, the land of central/northern Arizona, land of sunshine, clean air, starry night skies... great friends, and the restaurants of Old Town Cottonwood.

In closing on this chapter of my life ~ I have to say that this experience was definitely part of 'the Universe' telling me to "...SLOW DOWN ", and to take much better care of me.

To all of you who wrote to me wishing your best and saying many prayers... I'm sure it all helped.  

Again, thank you!

Now, back to more rest and healing; and, new adventures.

UFO ILLUSTRATOR, Founder of "Quantum Horizons", Jim Nichols; & Clifford Mahooty, ZUNI Nation Star Elder.
Both of these men, close friends of mine going back to the early 1990s, were great friends, teachers, fierce, passionate defenders of truth & freedom... and equally eloquent orators in their own right.  Great conference presenters, they both passed onto the higher vibrations & dimensions of life recently in this month of January 2022.  I will miss them both greatly.
Proton light therapy treatments completed -
December 22, 2021, three (3) days before Christmas 2021​.
Please say your 'prayers'... and wish them well in their new adventures and accomplishments in the higher realms, as they continue their highly valued work.  I know THEY'RE BOTH already very busy... working with the Council.   
March 27, 2022
First of all ~  thank you to ALL OF YOU ~ for your many kind thoughts, words, prayers and encouragement as I've gone through this whole process. All of it, the whole experience, everything I've been through, has been completely unexpected, surreal and life changing.  Mostly for the better.
Health wise, 99% of my nights I'm sleeping deeply, getting the deep healing recovery sleep that our bodies need. 
In closing for now ~  EXPECT NEAR TERM, HUGE CHANGES coming in the removal of the falsely "elected" people currently 'running' our national, U.S Federal Government.  

With this also expect ~ a near complete restructuring ~ of our whole national system of governance, this will likely include elimination of various "Departments", and high level "Agencies". 

You     can     also     expect     a     temporary    period     of  "Marshal Law" whereby this country for many months will be governed and managed by the U.S Military... until a wholesale clean-up, trialsmilitary tribunals and sentences are carried-out in dealing with, and FINALLY REMOVING from positions of power, the deep state/Cabal people, and literal non-human [Reptilian] beings, and hybrids, who've been running, not only the U.S, Canada and Australia, and many other countries as well. Many, many good changes are coming.  Finally, freedom and sovereignty It's long overdue.   
As for my life, I'm definitely in a new phase.  I can already feel many changes coming.
