At the site, I saw the bright lights and dust hanging as in the TV pictures; but I could not see the human rescuers. They were like ghosts, blurred. The souls of the dead were like live bodies, in sharp focus. Many of the souls were standing around dazed or wandering around; most I saw were curled up like they were asleep. They didn't want to see their surroundings or acknowledge their reality. There were beings from other dimensions observing; some helping.
I tried alternating my drumming through my heart and crown chakras to orient them toward the light. Energy from my crown chakra was shooting up into the light. I saw many go toward the light along my drumming; but many more either wouldn't get up or wake up or were wandering aimlessly. I spoke to many. So many souls were there, in various states of dazed and confused awareness: it was overwhelming.
That was the first night. The second night was easier. I drummed and my helping spirits met me there, where they stayed behind. They were ministering to the dead and dying. I got to stay pretty much in my body, at interface with one of my helping spirits who showed me through his eyes what was going on. My drummer gave power to them and provided an impulse toward the Christ Consciousness Grid. I was both there and at home in consciousness at the time; able to ground better and hold a beacon of drumming light toward the light stable.
The third evening, I rested. Each day I had worked and each evening I had drummed, and then continued the healing work while sleeping, working all night in my dream state helping souls toward the light; so that I was feeling exhausted.
Interestingly, each morning when I awoke, I felt as if I were covered in dust, my face and hands thick with it. Each morning in the shower I had to wash this chalky, dry energetic debris off me.
As I went to bed the third night, I prayed: "Please, Creator, angels, guides, helping spirits, let me rest tonight," as I was very tired. But a familiar voice full of gentle love and light said: "We need you. Can't you come?"
And I smiled just before drifting off and said, "yes." I awoke the next day covered in dust again.

GREG GUTFELD, HOST, "RED EYE": Yes.
BECK: Give me your proposal.
GUTFELD: Well, you know, I was thinking — I went on to their website the Cordoba House website. It's a lovely website, and they talk about preaching tolerance and communication. And I thought how interesting is it that they are preaching tolerance and communication to Americans? I thought, wouldn't it be great to test their tolerance? So I figured let's open an Islam-friendly gay bar next door to the mosque. That is my proposal and I'm sticking by it.
I'm not a good businessman and I'm a terrible activist, but this might be the greatest idea I've ever had.
BECK: But you are very, very funny.
GUTFELD: So — am I joking, is what you're asking?
BECK: I mean — what I'm saying is — well, give me some of the names of the -
GUTFELD: Well, I like — I like Ji-Hot.
GUTFELD: You like Turban Cowboy?
BECK: My favorite?
BECK: Suspicious Packages.
GUTFELD: Yes. That's a nice one.
GUTFELD: Yes. Rama-Dam. Yes. There are other ones that I don't think I should mention.
BECK: You Mecca-Me-Hot?
BECK: So now, what would the — what would the — the idea again is you go in to "Suspicious Packages" —
BECK: Which is just — it's a gay bar.
GUTFELD: Yes. Yes, it is, next to a mosque.
BECK: Next to the World Trade Center mosque.
GUTFELD: Exactly. And there will be no alcohol there, Glenn, so you can come.
BECK: OK. Really?
GUTFELD: Because Muslims don't drink alcohol.
BECK: Yes. Neither do I.
GUTFELD: So the bar will have 72 virgin drinks.
BECK: Now, this is to teach what exactly? Tolerance —
GUTFELD: Tolerance and communication.
GUTFELD: You know, the way that New York is going to accept the mosque, the mosque should accept a gay bar. You see that?
GUTFELD: The correlation —
BECK: Now, as someone who wouldn't want this gay bar built next to my church or, you know, a temple of mine, do you think it might be a little over the top?
GUTFELD: No. I think it has to be done, Glenn. It has to be done. And if I'm not the person to do it, somebody must do it.
BECK: Somebody must do it?
GUTFELD: But I have a lot of people that are interested in backing me for this. And I'm telling you, this is the greatest thing ever, because right now, I contacted the Cordoba House. I wrote them. I e-mailed them. They didn't respond. But I tweeted them and they tweeted me back.
BECK: And what did they say?
GUTFELD: They said, "You are free to open whatever you like. If you won't consider the sensibilities of Muslims, you are not going to build dialogue."
GUTFELD: Yes. And you know I love to build dialogue.
BECK: Sure. Especially — you do that at Grind Zeros.
BECK: Check out Greg Gutfeld's show, "Red Eye," on the Fox News Channel. You're not serious?
GUTFELD: I'm deadly serious, Glenn.
BECK: At Fox News Channel — airs weekdays at 3:00 a.m. ET for a reason.

"Alcohol, barbecues, gazebos and even traditional candles are on the 'do not bring' list on the pope's official visit website...
"The site's 'bring' list also recommends pilgrims bring a camera to capture their brush with the leader of the Catholic world."
I'll never forget lying in bed at noon on a Tuesday at age 23, finding out on Tumblr that today is the day the Pope banned vuvuzelas.

LONDON -- The octopus that achieved fame by predicting correctly the result of each of Germany's matches at this year's World Cup has switched allegiance to England.
Paul has been appointed as an ambassador to England's bid to host the 2018 World Cup.
Germany beat England 4-1 in the second round of the World Cup in the most recent installment of the nations' ongoing soccer rivalry, but the switch is a natural one for Paul.
Although he became famous by calling Germany's results and the Spain-Netherlands final from an aquarium in Oberhausen, Germany, Paul is English born. He hatched at Weymouth Sea Life Center on England's south coast in 2008.
Paul made his predictions by opening the lid of one of two clear plastic boxes, each containing a mussel and bearing a team flag.
"Paul has spent the last two years of his life in Germany, but he is definitely a proud Englishman," Weymouth Sea Life Center manager Nicola Hamilton said. "We have had a number of football approaches from around the world, but Paul was only ever going to choose his homeland."
With his eight tentacles, Paul is more adept at shaking hands than sweet-talking FIFA's 24-man executive committee that will vote in December on which nation gets to host the tournament.
But his role is simply to bring extra publicity to a country competing with the United States, Russia and joint bids by Belgium-Netherlands and Spain-Portugal.
"Paul the Octopus is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in football," former England winger John Barnes said. "Huge numbers of people will follow Paul's lead and back the bid."
Imitators sprang up all over the world, including Mani the parakeet in Singapore and Lorenzo the parrot in Hannover, Germany.
The latest is a saltwater crocodile named Dirty Harry, who predicted Spain's World Cup final win and this week called the result of Australia's general election by snatching a chicken carcass dangling beneath a caricature of Prime Minister Julia Gillard.
LONDON (Reuters) – The ever-present hum of the vuvuzela during this year's soccer World Cup catapulted the plastic trumpet to prominence and now it has earned a place in the Oxford Dictionary of English.
The credit crunch features heavily in this year's additions, with terms such as "overleveraged," having taken on too much debt and "quantitative easing," the introduction of new money in to the money supply by the central bank, among those included.
"Staycation," a holiday spent in one's home country, and "bargainous," costing less than usual, also reflect the hot topic of belt-tightening among consumers during the economic downturn.
The rise of "social media," itself a new term, has spawned several additions, including "defriend," removing someone from a list of friends or contacts on a social networking site, and "tweetup," a meeting organized via posts on Twitter. Other words include:
Bromance: a close but non-sexual relationship between two men
Cheeseball: lacking taste, style or originality
Chillax: calm down and relax
Frenemy: a person with whom one is friendly despite a fundamental dislike or rivalry
Interweb: the internet
Wardrobe malfunction: an instance of a person accidentally exposing an intimate part of their body as result of an article of clothing slipping out of position

A Gaithersburg man accused of squirting semen from a bottle onto a grocery shopper last month was arrested this week in a similar case and may have done the same thing at least twice before, officials said Tuesday.
On July 15 at a Giant Food store in Gaithersburg, police said, a man discharged fluid from a small bottle similar to those used to hold hand sanitizer and then snapped a photo of the act with his cellphone. The victim saved her unwashed shirt and skirt, providing investigators with a possible DNA sample.
Michael Wayne Edwards Jr., 28, has been charged in that incident and in another at a Michaels craft store, also in Gaithersburg. Police said that after questioning Edwards, they are looking for at least two more victims.
Gaithersburg police ask anyone who may have noticed an unusual substance on their clothes but wrote it off as benign to call them at 301-258-6400. "No one would ever think that someone would do this," said Officer Dan Lane.
Edwards, who is free on bond, is scheduled for two trials on assault charges in September. He could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
Police say officers were called to the Giant on Muddy Branch Road on July 15 after a woman said she felt something in her hair as she was walking out of the store. She said that she asked the man behind her if he'd felt a drip from above but that the man "acted like he didn't know what she was talking about," according to an arrest affidavit filed in court.
In the parking lot, the woman asked a friend to look at her clothes. Her friend said it looked like semen. The victim told police that she then spotted the man in the parking lot and walked toward him, but he sped away.
Detective Patrick Word examined surveillance video and saw the suspect purchase groceries using his store bonus card. In the doorway, the man can be seen squirting fluid from a bottle and taking a picture, police said.
Police identified Edwards through his bonus card and the surveillance video. Forensic tests confirmed the substance as semen. DNA tests are pending.
Montgomery County Detective Scott Brooks had been investigating the Michaels case since November. A shopper said a man followed her into the store. After he walked by, she felt liquid on the back of her sweater. She looked and thought it was semen. Lab results confirmed it.
Brooks matched that assailant's description to Edwards, who was charged in the case.
