Hello I was wondering if anyone knew of any help in any way I could receive to start a subsistence ranch I know the place I need to go but I was born into a poor family and have been fighting for what little i have I have no money to buy the land my credit is poor but my drive is very strong and my heart is right. I want very badly to have a place where people can come and work with me and help others I’m wary about asking for donations because so many people have so little as it is and I feel like most people would just see it as greed. I am stumped I’m not a greedy person far from it I hate money and what it does to people. But the issue is I need some now and have no idea how to get it. Time is short otherwise I’d just save up the money. Any help at all would be appreciated, thank you.


Miriam’s reply: remember that no matter what you HAVE to own….. if you are meant to be safe and live on the land then that is where you will be. Your spirit will keep you safe from any and all harm if there was danger. Don’T panic. The real path is to open up your heart and allow your spirit room to remember who you are. Love Miriam

About a year ago I began experimenting with a Bedini SSG.  For those who are unfamiliar with this, feel free to visit this link;

The way it works is that One battery runs the motor by pulsing a coil at a set frequency of pulses.  Opposite polarities repel and so the rotor spins.  Matching the frequency of pulses correctly to the speed of the rotor – in this case, a bicycle wheel with magnets glued to the outside of the rim- results in a well tuned circuit which charges a second battery.  The interesting part is that the way the secondary battery is charged allows that battery to do more work than one charged in a conventional way.  Lately, it was brought up to use a solar panel to charge the primary battery which would make this system totally efficient.  Another idea was to turn the rotor using the wind.

This might be helpful to those who already live off the grid or who like the idea of having the ability to do so.

Another link to explain this further;

I think the 2nd DVD is really good.  John Bedini explains how this process works.  I think it might be on youtube as well.


Miriam’s reply:

Excellent to hear more in this area. Thank you for sharing this with us. I will look into the sites myself to see what I can learn too. Miriam

Acres, USA is a great magazine I first became aware of back in the 1980′s.  I still have the magazines from then even though I have moved to three different states. 

Even though they say that they are “A Voice for Eco-Agriculture” and “Acres U.S.A. is North America’s oldest, largest magazine covering commercial-scale organic and sustainable farming” they do have great articles like about saving seeds and getting heritage seeds.

It was from this magazine that I got the books on alternative medicine also.

I’m currently reading Bluestar Fulfilling Prophecy, in fact I’m reading it aloud to my son, as he is equally concerned about what lies ahead.  Our family has experienced abduction from a viewpoint different than Miriam’s, and when questioning my mother and grandmother, it seems to have ties down the line.  We are not permitted to remember what has occurred except for just a few brief flashes that coincide with a lifetime of seeing crafts, as they are greys.  My son is now sharing his experiences, the brief things he remembers.  I wish it was a more similar experience.  What is similar, is the need for people to wake up and begin to develop spiritually, and with cooperation towards redesigning a better future, as well as a real need to provide sustainable pockets of living, throughout the lands.  My son is very interested in this.  In some way it bothers me that he very naturally accepted the possible ending of this age, and a new beginning.  He believes the future will entail natural living conditions with technology and advanced psi training.

The problems I see are simply how impossible it is for people on fixed incomes, who cannot even be assured of finding a suitable house to rent, at the going prices and hence do not feel able to garden in shared lodgings, the new way many children are living now due to extraordinarily high rents that are more than many peoples incomes.  So unless survival is a luxury item for the well to do, there needs to be some good planning done.  People living on fixed incomes are living on less than they need each month for necessities, and if there is anything left over, improving their nutrition is the biggest factor.  The thing about survival for many people is that they have to find ways to meet.  No one can alert or convert a world.  I’m trying my best to move away from the coast back to the Okanagan, where my family is.  My heart is always there, and in the end, if I can accomplish a move this year, I’m going to start my container garden by the end of January.  However, how many disabled people, as I am, or single mothers, as many are, or numerous others will be capable of acquiring land, getting all the right tools, or even buying the stuff needed.  The real need is to create, perhaps through meetup, groups in each area that incorporate the things each member can do, such as pooling resources and knowledge.  Not everyone needs tools for example, they can be shared.  A place to store technology, and our knowledge, so we don’t get sent back to the dark ages, projects such as radios and communication in case electrical is gone.  We can’t wake up a world, but we can help educate our communities through meetings, presentations, and public activities, where kids are tended with face painting.  We can create community webpages, and even with opensource programs, online local radio networks that do interviews.  And we can connect those communities with each other.

If sitx occurs, the land will be ours again to organize our communities on.  We have to get ready in bits and pieces, and ask ourselves what we can contribute.  Who can can foods, or has a dryer?  Who can build radios, or is mechanical?  Who can spin, weave, and create clothing?  Who can create medicines from herbs?  These things should not be promoted for those of means only, but meetups for everyone.

Miriam’s reply: I agree that it will take work to change the world. I know that the future will not be based on money it will be based on community and family. We have alot of work to do…together to change the attitudes of the people. I also feel for your story of how your son find the greys contacts normal….it is a concern for me as well. I send you love and protection light….Miriam

I posted something about gardening elsewhere on Miriam’s site, which came to me in a dream. This made me suddenly remember a dream I had over two years ago, and it seems I need to post it here now, for some reason. Since having this dream, I have added packages of dulse to my emergency prep supplies.

Dream notes from my journal dated 02-5-06:
<<I dreamt last night of being in an area that received a nuclear bomb…I was not at ground zero, but close enough to know what was happening and to try to flee. I took cover (joined by a Muslim man, btw), and I heard the word, “Dulse, dulse!”, and that was what was in my head when I woke up at 4 AM.

Now, dulse is a dried seaweed, and I have it in a shaker on the dining table and use it sporadically as a salt substitute and general seasoning (I also have other seaweeds frozen in the freezer and use sometimes in cooking soups). I have a general awareness of the health benefits of sea veggies, but nothing specific or memorable. So given the intense impression the dream had on me, I did some web searching and here is what I found, and it is most interesting, in that it seems dulse and other sea veges have been used and researched for their abilities to detoxify certain radiations out of the blood and thereby to avoid or minimize radiation sickness.>>


Here is some additional information regarding Dulse. You can type it into search engines and find additional information.

The active ingredients in dulse:

  1. have antiviral properties
  2. bind to radioactive toxins such as Strontium 90 and heavy metals like cadmium
  3. prevent the radioactive Iodine 131 from being taken up by the thyroid gland
  4. relieve inflammation and joint tenderness in rheumatoid arthritis
  5. have anti tumor activity

Studies done at McGill University on Montreal, Canada showed that the alginic acid could reduce the amount of strontium 90 adsorbed through the intestinal wall. The EPA expanded these studies and it was found that not only could these alginates bind and remove radioactive nucleotides but heavy metals as well. In fact they also discovered that these chemically active compounds allowed the strontium 90 and heavy metals to be re-secreted by the bones, bound to the alginates and safely eliminated from the body.

The high iodine content of dulse also ensures that the radioactive isotope of iodine, iodine 131 has no way of being adsorbed by the thyroid gland. Iodine 131 (radioactive iodine) is found in trace but ever present addition to our food and air supply. The iodine in dulse can reduce by 80% the radioactive iodine-131 adsorbed by the thyroid.

Some folks may not have much space to grow food or much experience with it, but there are many veggies that will grow in containers.

I came across two products that make the gardening effort easier, if one has the money to buy the gear. Check out or, for a less expensive version, to see these garden kits, which will work well on an apartment balcony, rooftop, or your backyard, so long as there is enough light.

I have no connection to these folks but had a dream last night about seeing one of these boxes, and I went surfing on the internet and found these, with good testimonials to back up their usefulness.

Your generous donations make it possible for Bluestar to continue her work. Thank you for your support.
