Weird Offerings at Community College

Periodically the mail brings us a pamphlet from our local community college listing their continuing education offerings. Along with the usual computer, drawing, cooking, and photography classes they include some less conventional subjects. I’m not even going to comment; I’m just going to list a few of them and let you draw your own conclusions.

The Awakening of Higher Consciousness and the New Earth – as predicted in the Mayan calendar, the year 2012 will be an opportunity for a quantum leap in consciousness, so why is the world so full of war, hate, panic, poverty? Is this the end of the world? What is ascension? Who are the Indigo/Crystal/Rainbow children? Why is the animal kingdom behaving differently?

Illustrated Discovery Journal– teaches you how to cut out pictures you like and make a collage as a way of revealing just about anything you want to know about yourself. It accelerates the unfolding of the authentic journey through pure intuition and feeling.

 Developing Your Psychic Awareness with the Tarot – uses all forms of exercises to develop your intuition and psychic ability using the TAROT.

Medicine Wheel: Creating a Sacred Circle– an ancient way of calling forth the healing energies of nature and relating better to the Earth Mother and all of creation.

The New Kids – Indigo/Crystal/Rainbow– since the 1970s children are being born who are increasingly more sensitive, aware, and psychic. They are the next step in our human evolution. They see auras and angels. They may be slow to learn to speak, picky eaters, and may thought abnormal by parents and others who don’t understand their gifts.

Reiki  – learn how to pass a large, warm current of vital life force from your hands into the person being treated. Reiki consistently and potently serves physical problems (broken bones, pain, swelling, headache), serious illness (cancer, heart condition, diabetes, AIDS), and emotional/spiritual problems (grief, broken heart, confusion or depression).

 The Lightbody Activation– a simple process performed with specially programmed crystals that raise your body’s vibration with Fifth Dimensional energy to create a positive shift in consciousness. Your chakras are activated, light is spun into the layers of your aura, and prana is brought into the cells of your body. Bring to class 3 crystals: amethyst or clear quartz, rose quartz, and a green crystal. Learn how to perform a LBA on others (in a single 4 hour class) to help them relax, heal, and shift their consciousness towards a healthier way of being.

Healing with River Stones and Crystals– Learn how to cleanse and program crystals and river stones. Apply stones with the correct color and energy to corresponding chakras to heal, ease pain, and shift energy. Bring a pendulum.
