The Carr Fire is currently becoming one of the largest and most dangerous fires in California history. As of July 31, 2018, the Carr Fire has consumed over 100,000 acres of land, which is more than 3x the size of San Fransisco. The fire has claimed the lives of 6 people and at least 19 people are still reported missing. At this moment it is only 23% contained despite having 3,300 fire personnel on scene fighting the fire. Things are only looking like they’re getting worse as the fire is so hot that it’s created its own weather system that has spawned tornado-like funnels that are destroying structures and roadways within the fire. For more updates please follow the links below.

**UPDATE**

It looks like things are worse than originally thought. New information has come to light that the separating of families at the border started months before the “No Tolerance Policy” was enacted. This makes that number of separated families go from 2300 to more than 4100. There is still no proper system in place to help families locate each other. (Trump admin ran ‘pilot program’ for separating migrant families in 2017)


Since May more than 2300 immigrant children have been separated from their families, placed in cages, then shipped off to facilities all over the US. Since there was no proper protocol in place when this all started, there is little to no paperwork identifying which child belongs to which parents or the location of where each individual child was sent. It is currently a scramble for families cleared of any wrongdoing to try and reunite with their children. The Texas Civil Rights Project has only been able to locate 2 children despite representing 300 families. Not only can these parents not identify the location of their children, but some of the facilities they are being held in may not be completely safe. Several reports have come out of facilities not properly vetting their staff members. Other reports have said that there have been instances of physical and sexual abuse in some facilities along with children being drugged and stripped of their clothing.

What We Know: Family Separation And ‘Zero Tolerance’ At The Border

Kilauea Volcano overtakes Puna Geothermal Plant, more evacuations underway

The Kilauea Volcano continues to erupt with no end in sight.  The growing body of molten lava spewing forth is now overtaking the Puna Geothermal Plant which is a major concern for everyone.  The plant uses a flammable gas called pentane in part of it’s production process which, if it comes into contact with or in close proximity to the lava flow could cause a potentially deadly explosion.  The company has removed over 50,000 gallons of pentane from the sight and capped it’s wells which, according to FEMA should be precaution enough to prevent any explosions, however, there continues to be widespread concern among local residents.  Meanwhile, there are ever widening evacuations ahead of the lava flow which shows no sign of slowing down.

Effects of Radiation from Fukushima on Fish

It has been nearly 7 years since a 9.0 earthquake struck off the coast of the NE corner of Japan and caused a tsunami that led to the failure of the containment walls at the Fukushima nuclear power plant.  The Japanese government has shut down several fisheries  and put into place other safeguards to protect it’s citizens from eating radioactive fish, but there is little that can be done to stop the long reaching, devastating effects on the ocean and the various lifeforms contained within it.

Lethal levels of radiation have been detected at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant, seven years after it was destroyed by an earthquake and tsunami.

Experts told Japanese state broadcaster NHK World that  the leaks could lead to a “global” catastrophe if not tackled properly. This announcement came as Tepco, the company responsible for the Fukushima plant said that contaminated water around the plant’s three reactors is seeping into the ground, causing major difficulties in the decommissioning process.  Tepco has also admitted that it might be as late as 2020 before the contamination issues is resolve so that they can move on to the second stage which is removing nuclear debris from the site, including the damaged reactors. For those of you with Johrei, this would be the place to use it.

The Rohingya and the upcoming monsoon season

In what is now being labeled as “the fastest growing refugee crisis in the world”, estimates as high as 800,00 Rohingya muslims have fled Myanmar to escape what the UN has called “textbook ethnic cleansing” and are now living in ever growing makeshift refugee camps along the border of Bangaladesh.  Humanitarian organizations which are doing all they can to provide food, clothing, medicine and latrines to the Rohingya are now facing another crisis – the rapidly approaching monsoon season.  Unless other provisions can be made, untold numbers of the Rohingya will be subject to flooding and mudslides.

The Good Guys

Yes, there are crises everywhere we look such that it is easy to feel overwhelmed by the suffering. But at the same time there are many, many people and organizations stepping up to provide help in specific crisis situations  as well as to the ecological crises across the planet. You won’t  hear much about these Good Guys on the news, but they also need our energetic support since they are working in the name of all of us who hold Compassion.  When we offer Reiki and Johrei to the Good Guys we leverage our abilities and we help move the planet closer to a point of positive critical mass.

We will regularly highlight some of the Good Guys here so we can quickly and easily offer them energetic backup.

Tea Farmer in India leads the charge for organics

In the biggest tea-growing region in India, the hazards alone range from red spider mites to herds of wild elephants. Grower Tenzing Bodosa, a native of Assam, fights the former and unusually invites the latter. Tenzing’s small 13-hectare (about 32 acres) tea estate sits in the folds of the Himalayas, and borders the mountain kingdom of Bhutan to the north. Tenzing transitioned to organic farming after an incident with pesticides on his own farm convinced him he needed to change. In addition to the transition to all organic farming, Tenzing dedicated 74 acres of  his estate as a wildlife preserve and spends much of his time teaching and encouraging other tea farmers how to switch to organic farming.

Tenzing talks with tea farmers from his large farming district on how to successfully run organic tea farms. He also discusses how best to survive in the market, where big tea growers with much cheaper rates can be more competitive.Tenzig Bodosa on his tea plantation
