The Pandora Phenomenon-Got Connections?

Have you heard about the "Pandora Phenomenon"? Are you suffering from the "Avatar Blues?"

It has been all over the news lately; people coming down with with the "Avatar Blues" or the "Na'vi Blues."

Calling it "The Pandora Phenomenon", CNN, MSNBC and other news stations are reporting that after seeing the movie Avatar many people are reporting a depression related to the movie.

For those who have not seen the movie, it takes place on a world called Pandora where the native people, the Na'vi, are all connected to each other, to the planet and even to their deity, Eywa. The connection is made by means of some strands of a material similar in appearance to "fiber-optics" which extend from the long braid of hair that each Na'vi has. These strands are able to intertwine with the strands of other Na'vi and even of animals and plants on their world. This gives them an instant connection, a "oneness", and they are immediately part of the world surrounding them and the collective mind of that world.

The Na'vi are a very spiritual people and believe that each and every thing on Pandora has a spirit. Even when they kill for food, they are always mindful of the spirit of the animal and thank it for its sacrifice of life. They exist in harmony with each other and their world, and their planet is as sacred to them as their deity. Because they are all connected, no one is lacking for anything, as they realize that what is good for one is good for all and conversely, what is bad for one is bad for them as a whole. They exist in perfect peace until the Earth military (and it's corporate sponsers) come in to mine "unobtanium", a mineral that is the most expensive material in the universe, and that exists in plentiful amounts on Pandora. Unfortunately, the land must be destroyed to mine it and this of course, upsets the balance, and the evil of greed and corporate irresponsibility is released upon an unsuspecting and trusting world.

It is an amazing movie, not only for its special effects, but for the message it contains. Yes, it is political in nature in many respects but I am talking about the spiritual message-the one that is causing viewers to become depressed. On Pandora, everyone is connected to everyone else. Their phrase for connection is "I see you." meaning that they can see into the very soul of another and make a connection deeper than anything on the physical or emotional level.

The "Avatar Blues" are a result of one basic thing: people want to connect to something greater than themselves like the Na'vi and are depressed because they feel that Pandora offers something that Earth does not.

An administrator for an Avatar online forum said this, "...I can understand why it made people depressed. The movie was so beautiful and it showed something we don't have here on Earth. I think people saw we could be living in a completely different world and that caused them to be depressed." A forum member said this, "When I woke up this morning after watching Avatar for the first time yesterday, the world seemed...gray. It was like my whole life, everything I've done and worked for, lost its meaning...I live in a dying world."

Over and over the sentiment is that they wish that they could be connected to each other and to the world and to something spiritual in their life and they feel lost because they don't know how or even if it is possible. They feel that Pandora is paradise and the Earth is coming in a very distant second.

Reading this has really made me think about my purpose here and how I can help others to make the connection that I know does exist.

Earth is not a distant second to Pandora; Earth is Pandora. We started out very connected to this world and to each other. Our souls were born from that connection but when we choose to come here to "Earth-school" we forget where we came from and how to connect, but there is something in us that makes us long for the re-connection. My guides described it as that feeling of "having something on the tip of your tongue"; something that you are trying to remember, something that you "know" that you know but is just out of reach.

When we connect to our Higher Self or our Divine Helpers, we connect to each other as well. Carl Jung wrote that we have a "collective unconscious", an innate mental structure that encompasses the thoughts from all of humanity-past, present and future. A Course in Miracles goes even further to postulate that if you go deeply enough into my mind and deeply enough into your mind, that we share the same mind which is that of Divine Mind or "God-mind" as my guides have been calling it. Marianne Williamson clarifies this in A Return to Love by saying, "There's actually no place where God stops and you start, and no place where you stop and I start. Love is energy, an infinite continuum. Your mind extends into mine and into everyone else's."

In essence-Connection. We just need to believe that we can do it and remember or re-learn how.

Connection is much easier than we think. We may not have physical "fibers" that plug in to other things but our connectors are just as real. We have energy connectors that connect our energy to that of our helpers and guides on the other side. They are just waiting for us to ask for help in remembering who we are and that we are all a part of a much greater mind. Learning to channel is learning to connect and even more importantly; learning to listen. Our helpers are always speaking to us; we just need to get the connection right. It's like a big switchboard in the sky-some of us have gotten disconnected, some have a bad line and some have a dead battery. Channeling is awakening the spiritual self and opening up to The Realm of Spirit. There are beings that come from places like Pandora. There are light-beings and guides and angels to talk to. There are loved ones on the other side who can help us so much better with the tools they have over there than they ever could while they were here.

An Avatar is a spiritual being who takes a physical form in order to help serve and bring enlightenment to others. We are all avatars-aren't we spiritual beings who have taken on a physical form in order to serve and bring enlightenment? We have just forgotten that part of ourselves and we rarely give ourselves credit for being the Divine soul that we are.

We are One. We are connected to each other but some of us just need a little help in fixing our "plugs."

I am offering a new channeling class in March to help you get "plugged in"; we may not have connector strands exactly like the Na'vi but we definitely have our own ways to connect. Our connectors are energetic and work just as well. Come, join my class and find out how. Find out more about "The Realm of Spirit-Making the Connection" below.

You know, there is a saying here that is just like the Na'vi-you may have heard it before. Namaste-"the divine in me recognizes the divine in you." "I see you." I do, and you are beautiful.

SPIRIT JOURNEY- A Spiritual Regression Workshop

Saturday, April 10, 2010



Call 505-897-1715 to register

Why am I here? What are my lessons-what am I supposed to learn from the experiences I have chosen? Why did I choose my parents and this time and place to be born? Who are my loving guides?

Join Donna as she conducts this fascinating "Life After Life" workshop focusing on the journey of your soul. You will discover your soul's purpose as you travel along the path from your last lifetime to the time you spent at "home" working with your loving guides to the time that you were born into your current life. You will meet your soul guide who has been with you since the beginning and will help you uncover why you are here and your ongoing spiritual purpose.

This workshop will use hypnotic spiritual regression techniques to help you make the journey of a lifetime! Your soul is immortal and this workshop will help you understand that you truly never die-this body may pass away, but the spirit that is YOU, lives on forever and has many, many experiences. You are a spiritual being currently having a human experience. Find out why!

Place to be announced depending on the amount of participants.

Most likely there will be a Channeling-Level 2 or other psychic development class in April as well-this depends on interest.

New Feature


This is going to be a regular feature in our newsletter. We want to give you the opportunity to ask a question of either Donna or Dr. Rudy about anything. It could be of a personal nature, or a question about a departed loved one, or about channeling or healing. Maybe you want to know what the best Feng Shui cure is for prosperity or relationships. Perhaps you would like to know how Dr. Rudy does his distance healings or how the Egyptian Healing Rods work. This might be the chance to get a mini-reading on a question that you have been having. These questions will be answered free of charge but they will only be answered in the newsletter. If we get enough questions, we may go to publishing the newsletter twice a month instead of once. These will not be in-depth readings and they will be published so don't ask anything that you don't want someone else to know. We will not supply answers to you personally. If you want a personal reading, we are still available for those. We ask that you don't ask anything of a pornographic nature or anything that is a slur against anyone else or their beliefs. We will also publish your name and location unless you tell us that you only want initials published. We are looking for legitimate questions and preferably something that would be of interest to someone else. It may be that others share the same question as you do and by asking it, you may be helping others who have the same concern.

And now our first question:

Because You Wanted to Know...

Dear Donna and Dr. Rudy,

"I don't understand why people from beyond will come into my mind's eye and give me a message. I don't think I can talk to them and usually it happens when I am in a relaxed pensive state. These "spirits" are connected to loved ones here on earth. It certainly is not something I want. I also sense evil or black essences but have always told them to go away or turn my back on them. I am trying to find answers. I am a nurse (30 years)and have been present with a lot of people's passing. Some traumatic some not.

It's crazy and I often don't tell the person to whom the message is meant but another loved one to give them the message. There have been just 3 entities that have come to me, no more. But the messages were clear. Sometimes I don't understand the message but it might make sense to the other person. What is this "gift" called?"

Vicki, Lincoln, NE

Dear Vicki,

It sounds very much like you are developing the gift of mediumship. We all have gifts of spirit but most of us have forgotten how to use them. My guides are telling me that you have had this gift for some time and that you saw "spirits" quite a bit as a child. Your gift is coming back now to allow the spirits of the departed to come to you so that you can give messages to their loved ones.

When someone dies, they usually stay around for a while in order to give comfort to their loved ones who are grieving. They are indeed drawn to the light of Home on the other side but it is very important to them to let their family and friends know that they are not gone-only transformed and that they can still have contact. They will try in many ways to make a connection-they usually try first to connect to the loved ones themselves but many times severe grief can block the reception of their contact. They will then look for an easier way and if there is someone present who has the vibrational gift of mediumship, then they will choose them to connect with.

You sound like a very loving person and so they will come to you to help them get their message of love and immortality of the soul to their loved ones. There is nothing to be frightened of as spirits cannot harm us-no matter what the TV may show.

It is true that there may be some lost souls who feel negative as they are confused and there are indeed some lower energies that are looking for the light but again, they can't hurt you. If you feel a lower energy, simply call in Archangel Michael and ask him to protect you (you should be asking him for protection anyway) and to take the entity to the Light. You can also command them to go to the Light-to take the hand of their own helper guides and angels and go on to the Light.

If this gift of mediumship is not something that you want, then ask God to take it away from you. We do have free will and we do not have to use our gifts if we choose not to but it sounds to me like you would like to be able to have more control over it. Ask for that as well. Ask God to help you control your gift and ask the Archangels for their help as well.

Archangel Azrael is the Angel of Death and he brings comfort not only to those who are grieving but to those of us who would be a bridge between the departed and those still living. He helps us with vibration and also with what to say to the living. I am sending him now to you, don't be afraid, he is really quite gentle and he will help you with whatever you decide.

Blessings to you as you uncover your great gift, Donna.

How to submit questions

If you would like to submit a question for the newsletter, please go here. and as always, thank you.


Dr. Rudy is now offering energy healing at a distance. That's right, if you are not in Albuquerque or have a loved one who doesn't live here, you can now get a very powerful and loving healing session from him. He has amazing healing energy that flows through him from his guides which include Archangel Raphael, a light being named Helios and the Christ Healing Energy. He is connected to a guide that worked with Edgar Cayce as well in his healing work. His connection to these energies allows him to scan and direct energy from a distance in a very accurate way.

One thing that he would like to remind you of is that sometimes healing does not come in the way that you think it will or even the way that you would prefer. Sometimes, the illness is not cured but you receive the benefit of love and understanding that whatever occurs has happened for your own highest good.


Dr. Rudy is also offering powerful vibrational sessions to help raise your personal vibration and increase and activate higher DNA to facilitate Ascension. In order to ascend, we must be on a higher vibrational level and his work can help you become a multi-dimensional being with increased health and intuitive connections. You will experience a more vibrant life and the ability to manifest easier and quicker than before. This will help you align with the higher frequencies coming into our world now and in the next few years.


Dr. Rudy is a gifted healer who uses many types of energy and vibrational methods in his work. In addition to the powerful channeled energy of his guides, he is a certified Egyptian Healing Rod practitioner and distributor and he is also a certified Acutonics practitioner.

If you would like to experience the benefits of Acupuncture but are not sure about the needles, then ask him about Acutonics-Acupuncture without needles!

Dr. Rudy also uses Feng Shui to help benefit your life and healing. In traditional Oriental Medicine, Feng Shui was the first tool of the practitioner in healing. If the energy of your surroundings is not healthy than it is impossible for your personal energy to be healthy. Find out what it feels like to have your life in balance with Feng Shui and energy work.


This is a face-lift without surgery! Experience amazing results! Look younger without dangerous drugs, poisons (remember, Botox is botulism and botulism can KILL you)or risky surgery. The facial acupuncture course of treatment not only helps dissolve wrinkles and lines and tightens the skin of the face but helps the overall health of your entire body as well. Just a short series of treatments are required for full benefit and you will see results long before your last treatment and the results last for months! Not to mention that it's a whole lot cheaper than surgery and facial surgery doesn't do anything for the rest of you.

If you are interested in having a session with Dr. Rudy, either in person or at a distance, please call 505-933-3943 or use this contact form.

I have received the Violet Wave Meditation from Archangel Raziel. It is my charge and my delight to present this to you know. It has been written in a form that you can record yourself in your own voice. I am also hoping to have an mp3 recording soon which can be downloaded from our site.

This meditation is very important as I have been informed that only those who have been prepared physically by raising their vibration will be able to Ascend during the Shift. This does not mean that we will die but our bodies will be transformed vibrationally. The Violet Wave must be received and assimilated so that we will be able to receive the White Wave which is the new Christ Consciousness.

Go to the Violet Wave of Ascension.
