Flo Magdalena (and The Messengers) help us by inviting us to “stand in the center of duality” and be aware of the necessary effort we now need in order to drop “consciousness duality.” 

As we all journey through this unprecedented time of COVID-19, it seems we have more time and motivation to look beneath the surface of living.  Our ACT presenter in May, Flo Magdalena (and The Messengers) helped us do just that by inviting us to “stand in the center of duality” and be aware of the necessary effort we now need in order to drop “consciousness duality.”  “When we stop separating, we know we are not separate.”  Flo and The Messengers encouraged us to honor our powers of life:  healing, health, forgiveness and compassion and reminded us that these ideas are only ideas if they are not felt as truth. “Orchestrate your life so that it reflects your own consciousness,” she said.

Our mission is clear, Flo shared, “It’s about vibration.”  When we hold this concept and this vibration   regardless of the situation — when we step back from taking sides and go beyond right and wrong — we can then act as a vessel of Light, Order, Truth and Union.  Flo suggested ways to stay in this higher vibration which included writing, spending time in nature, and identifying what make you happy.  If there is constant worry it will obscure your focus, she said.

Flo and The Messengers led us in a wonderful guided mediation to see and experience a source of light and also individual tubes of light where we connected with others.  The session helped us have a knowing that we are one; a feeling of unity with others  —  all people, all cultures and all choices for autonomy and co-creation, a sense of unity consciousness that exists and has existed in all time.  As Flo puts it, we “balance our hearts to include all.”

Flo has posted a wonderful article on her website entitled “Holding the Soul of the World Through the Web of Crystalline Light,” where she expands on this concept of “Weave of Union.” Visit www.soulsupportsystems.org and click on the box “Message from the Board.”  The website also offers an array of programs, courses, messages, books and products you’ll want to explore.

The New Ascension Process of 2020 and Beyond, Moving from Fear and Powerlessness, To Love and Empowerment

Melissa Feick’s Presentation for the ACT meeting, April 9, 2020

This has been the year of firsts, especially with Covid19 and sheltering in place directives.  ACT responded by regrouping and completely rethinking how we would offer our Programs and develop an online zoom strategy that would keep our programing coming to our members and friends of ACT.  Kudo’s to those in ACT that were able to make this possible.  We kicked off our virtual program with Melissa Feick’s insightful program, and as is often the case, it fell together perfectly!  Melissa delivered a program, albeit virtual, that knocked it out of the ball park!

The material she presented was so meaningful and rich that Vicki Fearey and I shared several phone calls and email exchanges in an effort to capture just some of the highlights that Melissa shared with us on April 9th Zoom call.  She introduced us to the dawn of this new age and gave us a perspective into what is happening in our world now and how to prepare ourselves for the monumental transitions of this sacred time.

“The past ten years,” Melissa stated, “has been child’s play compared to the accelerated frequencies we will be experiencing now and going forward. “ While this process is not tethered to government or even the virus; we have been shaken to our core.

The pandemic has certainly not only shaken us, but the entire world to its core. A global pandemic is a big player in this time of Ascension and rising frequencies, and we have been called to be leaders and help ourselves and others ascend into higher consciousness through power and love.  This is a galactic situation requiring that we move from the old concepts of ego, control and power.  This is love through power and it will strengthen us in ways we don’t even know yet.  This is powerful on an individual level but is exceptionally powerful in groups.

Melissa’s meditation was quite deep and moving allowing us to focus on each chakra and align them while encouraging us to expand and raise our frequency as we worked on our ascension and became one with the divine. The meditation invited us to be open to the loving frequencies that would enable us to jump time lines to activate a whole new way of living in this 3D and 5D world through awareness and love.

Melissa has posted her Divine Love Meditation on her website. She has generously made this available to all of us.  For your free meditation, go to

A Tribe of Lightworkers – Together We Rise!

If you are reading this, you are a Lightworker and your light has never been needed more than it is at this time!   2020 we were told would bring big changes and challenges but who could have imagined what we are going through now?  It is important to remember that now is the time we have come for!

As Lightworkers we realize how important increasing and expanding our consciousness and awareness is and that it is the reason why we are here.  We know that we are more than our jobs or the tasks we perform and our ultimate aspiration is to become the best we are meant to be.

We are also very interested in self growth so we read, study and place a high priority on bettering ourselves so ultimately, we can be of service in love to those we come in contact with.   We know we all have somethings valuable to share and we know it is all an expression of Love.

Lightworkers march to a different drum and ultimately feel “different”.  Even though our family, friends and acquaintances like/love us, we know they don’t get us completely.   Also, many Lightworkers have experienced trauma and great difficulties that instead of destroying them has stretched them to a place of greater Understanding.  They see life, people, experiences and the world from a higher more spiritual point of view, they have developed expanded Awareness that they long to develop and share.

Lightworkers long for a Tribe where they can feel accepted, respected, understood and purposeful.  A place and people you can learn with and share your talents and insights.  You have found your Tribe with us!

ACT wants you to know that we remain active during these isolating times to provide those opportunities to learn, grow and share.  You will be receiving weekly emails from “A Community of Transformation” updating our Programs, study groups, Reiki, etc. as we shelter in place.   Our work continues and is more important than ever, so please look for emails from ccc@actannapolis.org and join us when you can with our online programs.

There is a dark cloud over us now, but we know that the sun is still shining above those clouds.  We know that the Light is always there and the darkness is often where the most important lessons are learned.  It is a time to go within and find your light and share it.  The clouds will pass and we will be transformed.  It will be challenging but if we go through this Consciously, we will grow!

We invite you to join our Tribe of Lightworkers.  Anyone joining or joined now will be included in the upcoming years membership.  Thank you all so much for your support.  Our programs will continue virtually until we safely can meet again.  You can check us out  at https://actannapolis.org/membership-join-or-renew-today/.   However, if you don’t feel this is the right time for you to join, please know you are Always Welcome! We love and appreciate you no matter how you chose to show up!

Remember “we love each other into wholeness” and Together We Rise!

With Love and Light,

Helen Dierker,
Membership Chair
