  1. There are 145 earthquakes on the schedule for the Pacific-wide Tsunami exercise and the US is doing their own thing with the broadcast test while Oklahoma and the Carribbean are so active. Hmm, I’m thinking the time travelers saw this coming for November 9th. Lots of Love and Light,

    • just a thought…for the next week , might want to top off your gas tank and keep a few gallons of water and a bit of food in the car…
      This friday there will be a world wide group meditation with millions of light workers and others participating…starting at 7:11 east coast time…you (all) are invited…the only thing you need to bring is some love and light…

      Journey well
