Preparedness = Rely on Yourself = Information + Calmness + Common Sense + Prepare

If you have found your way to this page and you feel as we do that a certain level of preparedness is essential for a safe future
and that it is unwise to rely on anyone else for security, ~ my instinct is that it would be prudent to have all your ducks in a row by NOW.

Please use your own common sense, intelligence and intuition to be discerning with the following information.

Be pro-active when appropriate - and still when appropriate - and follow the advice of the emergency services.
Every thought and activity is crucial at a time of emergency.
Even if you are in anguish, stress, fear or pain, be a beacon of calmness and sensible action.
Secure yourself and your loved ones and then help others.

Identify what you need to feel safe. What brings you security?

QUESTION: If you had 5 minutes warning to move yourself and your loved ones -
are you prepared to do so with all the items you'd need for at least a week ?

Always keep vehicle tanks full of petrol
~ food and water for at least 72 hours for everyone plus some
~ all batteries fully charged - cameras, lights, torches and mobiles
~ phone fully powered with plenty of credit
~ your grab bags packed
~ a readily accessible Contact List of important telephone numbers, email addresses and addresses.
~ passport and important documents
~ take Mattresses, raincoats and good shoes into your shelter room.
~ your own ideas go here

The urgency for preparedness has been covered well on these pages.
Winds, Water, Floods, Currency Collapse, Unemployment, Political Chaos
and what I call The
Greater Depression are in progress.

Prepare your home against fires, winds and storms... clean gutters, remove rubbish etc


SES Rescue Australian State Emergency Service - run by volunteers - Call 000 and please be patient
If in NT call 132500 instead
24 hour emergency contact 13 25 00

'We’re the people you sometimes see on television, helping out in cases of emergency. Especially when it comes
to storm and flood response, no other emergency service has better equipment, training and expertise.
At the SES, it’s a real team effort and we need lots of team players with different skills. You don’t have to hang off cliffs – we also
need people to do things like operating the radio, driving, observation, navigation, dog handlers, horse riding for searches and lots more.'

As the world economy teeters on the brink of disaster - do not give up hope! Call me cynical...
There IS a use for those soon to be useless dollars and to make a profound statement in the process.


This is what ONE trillion dollars looks like.

“Only when the last tree has died, the last river has been poisoned,
and the last fish has been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.”
Cree proverb


Self Managed Superannuation Funds

Clients and friends who followed my suggestion to roll over their superannuation and manage it themselves
by purchasing gold and silver have seen their investment grow rather than be eroded drastically. It's a simple
process that requires a little study and a solicitor who has previously performed this service and so knows the ropes.

Releasing Outmoded Systems

The pressure is really giving off steam in so many major areas worldwide.
We may not be able to do much about the world economy, volcanoes and earthquakes etc
- however, we can do a great deal in our local communities.
It's always advisable to have the heat on low under the pressure cooker.

What do you imagine would happen to everyday life if massive solar storms were to damage our electrical systems? I've been
following the status of solar flares for years and see heightened solar activity as a very real threat to life as we know it. Clearly
modern cars would cease to function along with commerce, internet and all things that rely on electricity and magnetics.

Time of the Sixth Sun It is time for us to consciously dream a new future.

“There will be no shift of the ages outside of ourselves”   (Carl Calleman)

Hopi: And do not look outside yourself for the leader. This could be a good time! There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel like they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly. Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off toward the middle of the river.


Expect Respect

ICE - 'In Case of Emergency'
We all carry our mobile phones with names and numbers stored in its memory but nobody, other than ourselves, knows which of these numbers belong to our closest family or friends. If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phone but wouldn't know who to call.

Store the number of a contact person or persons who are to be contacted during emergency under the name 'ICE'.

The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went to the scenes of accidents, there were always mobile phones
with patients, but they didn't know which number to call. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally
recognized name for this purpose. In an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital Staff would be able to
quickly contact the right person by simply dialling the number you have stored as 'ICE.'

For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc. A great idea that will make a difference!
Let's spread the concept of ICE by storing an ICE number in our Mobile phones today!


Earth Changes and Preparedness

We are witnessing massive numbers of people throughout the world severly affected by floods, earthquakes, typhoons, tornados, toxic spills, wildfires, heatwaves, freezing cold snaps, hurricanes, crop failures, transportation disruptions, war, economic downturn etcetera.

If any or many of these conditions were to happen in your area - are you sufficiently self-sufficient and prepared for survival?
You will find a large number of sites and information relating to these subjects
throughout the Celtic Gardens pages and on my facebook pages.

As earth changes escalate it is important to be a beacon of calm and resourcefulness.
Our very survival depends on our attitudes now and during the next years.

Hot Tip 1: Plan and prepare throroughly and methodically. Have copies of documents, titles, passport details.
Hot Tip 2: When making preparations it is prudent to at least double what you think you may need.
Hot Tip 3: Factor in the needs of the sick, the distraught and the elderly.

Wiki: A phoenix is a mythical bird with a colourful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet or purple and blue. It has a 500 to 1,000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of myrrh twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again. The new phoenix is destined to live as long as its old self.


Phoenix Rising: Visions of The Changes To Come by No-Eyes

Deep in the Colorado mountains, Mary Summer Rain learnt from a Chippewa Native American wise woman and seer No-Eyes about human
spiritual development, the future of our planet, and the interrelationship of all life. “Earth Mother in bad labor. She gonna give birth to something great. She already in first labor hours... She be in great pain now... It be great Phoenix that gonna rise up again just like all times ago. He already here... He been forming for years now. He all ready to break out of Earth Mother’s womb... She gonna give up great Phoenix soon...” No Eyes

Some of No Eyes' other predictions include planes falling from the sky and an increase in accidents because the caretakers stop preventing them so that humans can see the results of their actions. More predictions include economic crashes resulting in hunger and riots, financial crimes by corporate executives, nuclear accidents, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, people going crazy. Finally, the Phoenix is born,
we have the second coming, and we live in a peaceful, compassionate, less materialistic time -
more in touch with God and nature, much as the native Americans lived.
