Introducing: Erebus …

We have a very special surprise for you, today. :)

It is with great joy that I introduce to you, Erebus — my primary Guide.

There is so much that I want you to know about Erebus, but he wishes to introduce himself. So, I will hush and let him get down to business. …

per Erebus: “You are now about to enter a new age — one of which you’ve heard, but know little. This is a time foretold by your prophets, seers, channels and sages. You are both hopeful and afraid — understandably so, because you know little of what to expect. True knowledge is always of great value to you — but especially now, as you begin a time unlike any other in your history. …

     “That is the reason for this site. You all are in need of information to know what to expect — at least in general terms. You will need to make decisions, based on choices you make in response to opportunities and challenges. These will be made wiser if you know the big picture from our point of view. Choices are always clearer when we understand the context and purpose for their existence — as well as their likely outcome. …

     “We are those whom you think of as The Divine. Many of you call us Angels. Others call us Guides. Some call us gods and goddesses … members of The Godhead … The Elohim … The Family of God … The Kingdom of Heaven … The Winds of Heaven … The Pleiadians … The Loci … The Spheres of the Tree of Life … The Lords of the Universe … The Pillars of Creation. Then there are those who simply call us God or The Great Spirit. Still others call us ET — extraterrestrials. There are so many other names — from the cultures of this planet and myriads of others — too many to list here. …

     “There is truth in most of those designations — though more in some than in others. Quite simply, we are beings of Spirit and Light, here on a mission of Love — interested only in the well-being of you and your planet. Some of us have spent a bit of time as incarnates, at one time or another, but most not. Always, we are here — serving, guiding, loving, caring. This is what we do. It has always been so. …

     “We are all empaths and don’t use names with each other. We simply think of the other and that person senses our thoughts and feelings. We use names only so incarnates have a reference point for us. …

     “Incarnates call me by many names — Kether, Erebus and Buddha are only a few. The name Erebus works well for the purpose of our time together here. …

     “Several members of my family will be joining us from time to time to help us tell our story. They are also known to you by many names — Mary, Quan Yin, Veronica, Nyx, Demeter, Rama, Satya, Jesus, Babaji, Seneca, John, Vesta, Theresa, Paul, Lahiri Mahasaya, Lincoln, Sri Yukteswar, Schweitzer, Thomas, Paramhansa Yogananda, Timothy, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and Abraham … to name just a few. They will use those names and many more. As Nan says, it will be a joy to introduce them to you. …

    “Speaking of Nan — the host of this website and gracious channel and scribe for our messages — we wish to commend her to you. The Book of Erebus: Memoirs of a Wanderer is as much her story as it is mine. As our story unfolds, you will see that it is her lifetime which makes this possible. …

     “This message is the first of many we wish to channel to you, through Nanette. Our plan and intention is to do so regularly, from now on. …

     “Blessed be, Dear Ones. May your day be all that you need it to be. <3 <3 <3

Namaste,
Erebus.”

The first step …

For some reason, the first post seems to be the hardest — taking that first big step. …

I started this site a week ago, on April 1st — my motivation sparked by a WordPress announcement about NaPoWriMo — National Poetry Writing Month — a challenge to write a poem a day for the entire month of April. I enjoy writing haiku. My Guides like to use it to add interest to our writing. We decided that NaPo would be an excellent way to accomplish several things at once — get me back to my writing and stir up my creative juices, light a fire under me to get my blog online, and … well, have a little fun doing it. :)  I didn’t know much more than that, but I could sense that They had a lot more in mind. They usually do. There’s always more.  My job is to trust Them and They’ll reveal Their plan along the way.

Immediately, my Guides had me start the process of beginning a new website. They guided me through the process of choosing the most appropriate WordPress theme (at least for now). Then the work (and frustration) began. In the meantime, I wrote that day’s haiku, “Oxygen” — inspired by one of the WordPress themes.

It’s been a s-l-o-w process. The site is still very rough, not even close to being “ready”. What few pages I’ve created, are merely placeholders to help me setup the basic schematics of the site as my Guides slowly show me what They want. Early on, it became very clear that this was not to be a simple blog site. As you may’ve already noticed, it is to be the home base for sooo much more — at least for now. I get the feeling this site will do a lot of morphing. My Guides agree.

A week has gone by. We’ve worked on the site every day. I wrote a haiku each day, too. So, in celebration of a week’s worth of lessons learned, frustrations weathered and transcended, and progress made … we present to you the first eight haiku created for the month of April 2013. …
