  1. Hi I wanted to share to really powerful images I have been having. If anyone can help explain them let me know.

    First is all I see is clouds like steps going upwards towards a large gold book.

    Second I see a large tree next to a river. I am holding hands with hundreds of children of many cultures. I start in an empty field and then as I wait watching the rainbow in the distance I see children coming towards me taking my hand and then taking the next child’s hand, until the circle is complete. We are completely in a perfect circle around the tree.

    What can these images mean?
