Editors Corner

Spring is here, finally, and so is the Primary Event at the Ranch. As I write the tents are going up and students are arriving in Yelm from all over the world. This week has a full line-up of speakers starting off with JZ on Saturday. Even if you are not here in Yelm you can join via live stream. We posted the list and times for you with a link to in our Community Calendar.
It's funny how this newsletter finds its theme each week. I have tried to plan, but I am learning to get out of the way and allow it to have its own voice. This week it wants us to talk about money. Maybe because our readers are busy buying preparedness supplies and are feeling the pinch of lack, or maybe folks have started to think about what happens when credit cards, debit cards, and paper with dead presidents printed on it have no value.
Our Feature Story offers a model of energy trade that is an alternative to money. It would be great to have a system like this in place in every community. Our thanks to Hour 4 Hour for giving insight into how their trade system is working here in Yelm and Rainier. I am sure they would happy to help you if you want to set up a timebank in your area.
Our Readers Choice this week is “Busting Loose from the Money Game”. Read the review. This author is really on to something I can relate to: “You have the opportunity to reclaim the power that was applied to the limiting financial patterns in The Field and collapse those patterns, and once again experience Infinite Abundance, your natural state.”
By the way, Megamillions Lotto is up to 312 million this week.
Phoenix Rising students know all they need to know about money. These little masters are truly powerful. Their message is “Focus Works!” Click here for their short story.
News Flash! Although the sun has been shining all afternoon at my house, I just found out it started to rain and hail at 4PM, the exact time students were allowed to put up their tents at the ranch. Folks were laughing saying, “Who says Ramtha doesn't have a watch”.

Feature Story
Get Out of the Money Game; Become a Time Banker
By Jalene Smith

Need your chicken coop painted, or your bathroom fan repaired? Know someone who needs wood to stay warm? Need a truck for a day so you don't have to pay delivery charges? What about having someone pick up your mail so you don't have to make an extra trip to town?

These are all actual examples of trades in our community time bank. The Hour 4 Hour Time Exchange ( was started by Heidi Gould and Jalene Smith when they got wind that a family less than three miles from where they lived were burning their kitchen table for fire wood. So they shoveled the snow out of their truck, loaded up some dry wood, a couple bags of food and put some money in their pockets. The pre-teen daughter said they were the best Christmas presents she had ever had. This was not what a sovereign, safe and sustainable community looked like to Heidi and Jalene, and they decided to do something about it.

The Hour 4 Hour Time Exchange now has close to 200 individual members, as well as several non-profit organizations. In addition to individual trades, the time bank has sponsored two Knowledge Days at the Rainier High School where members use their earned timebank hours to attend classes on everything from canning to making their own cleaning products to preparedness. Each monthly meeting now includes an educational presentation on a timely and pertinent topic. In February, an electrical engineer discussed Farraday cages and a workshop was held for members later in the month where participants made a small Farraday cage. In March, a master gardener answered questions on early spring gardening.

Time bank members provide many hours of service to the community organizations housed at the Old Historical Rainier School House on Centre St/148th in Rainier. This includes the Rainier All Volunteer Library, the Food Bank and Thrift Shop.

The time bank has recently expanded into the Olympia/Lacey/Tumwater communities. The NW Eco-Building Guild, a group of renewable and sustainable builders and friends, has just joined as an organization. They will be having their 2011 South Sound Green Tour and EcoExpo on April 16 and 17. The tour consists of 20 sites where green, sustainable and renewable practices have been used. One site, in particular, is a home built with insulated concrete forms. They are looking for 100 volunteers to pull this off successfully. And get this, they will be having a volunteer orientation meeting with chocolate and wine on March 31. Check-out and click on 'I want to volunteer' to see a list of the ways you can help, or call Chris at 360.789.9669.

The Hour 4 Hour Time Exchange holds regular monthly new member orientation meetings the third Friday of each month. The next meeting is Friday, April 15, 6:30 p.m. at the Old Historical Rainier School House. The Olympia monthly time bank meeting is the last Friday of every month; the next meeting is Friday, April 29, from 7 - 9 p.m. at the Fertile Ground Bed and Breakfast, 311 9th Ave., Olympia.

There are lots of YouTube videos on time banking. The Hour 4 Hour Time Exchange is affiliated with Time Banks USA, ( The dream is to have sustainable micro-economies that are sovereign and sustainable and yet, interconnect with each other. If there is a time bank where your mother lives wouldn't it be a great way to spend a time banked hour you earned here giving someone a hand for someone there stopping by to visit your mother?

Something Worth Knowing

Ramtha Predicted the Earthquake in Japan 25 Years Ago
During a seminar that was recorded at a weekend event on May 17-18, 1986 in Denver, Ramtha said, "There is a new landmass that is creating itself at the present moment off of your country called Japan ... it is a new shelf rising to the surface, and the shelf of that pressure coming to the surface is going to create quite a bit of activity with regard to earthquakes in Japan."

Busting Loose from The Money Game
Mind-Blowing Strategies for Changing the Rules of a Game You Can't Win
Author Robert Scheinfeld

Review by Anita Mariott

I love the way this author thinks! From page one there were fireworks exploding in my brain. He not only thinks outside the box - he “dynamites the box wide open”.
“I invite you to look at the world or what we call three-dimensional reality as if it were a gigantic amusement park.” One of the star attractions at this amusement park for Infinite Beings is the Money Game. It has a complex set of rules and works like a total immersion movie or the holodeck from Star Trek. In this movie everything is carefully crafted to limit you and convince you that you are the exact opposite of who you really are, an Infinitely Abundant Being. The only way to win this game is not to play - or “bust loose”, as the author coaches.
I really wasn't expecting a profound spiritual message when I purchased this book about money. Who knew that this self-help writer could get it so right and make it so simple to understand. He is talking, holograms and quantum physics, not investments or marketing strategies.
My mind can't stop thinking about the amusement park metaphor. We ride the rides and play the games for the prize of “feelings”. Remember when Ramtha said the prize of this plane is feelings?
“Really getting that your Consciousness is creating everything you experience is absolutely critical to busting loose from The Money Game.” As Infinite Beings we used our power to create amazingly complex illusions just so we could experience feelings like lack, fear and frustration. The joyful news is that I can un-create that illusion (turn off the holodeck) by reclaiming my power from the illusion anytime I feel the discomfort or feeling. Busting Loose from The Money Game has a simple process to do just that. Enjoy!

Phoenix Rising School
Focus Works!

“I am 1,000 percent behind this school.” - Ramtha

In February, the students at the Phoenix Rising School focused on a goal of raising $25,000 at this year's Blue College Retreat. On Tuesday, March 22nd, the numbers came in: they had achieved their goal. The staff and students celebrated with a special cake decorated with the words ”Focus Works!“ from C.R.E.A.T.E. director Sonya El Debssi. Now, they have created a new goal: $45,000 by the end of the primary retreat. Keep focusing, kids!
