Marla Frees shares thoughts on the new year

Marla Frees spoke with Whitley Strieber on a DREAMLAND New Years Day audio podcast. They spoke about what we can learn from 2009, and what we might expect in the year to come. As I listened I was struck by something she said and I transcribed it below.

It really "zapped" me with it's relevance. Don't ask me how, but you put into words what I'm feeling in my gut.

The audio is free, on the UNKNOWN COUNTRY site, click on the audio link in the upper right corner. And, Marla posted a short essay on her blog titled Right Resonance, and it's about this same subject.

Here's the (slightly edited) text of what Marla said:

I am just beside myself this morning. I had the most incredible dream and I woke up with a very specific thing I want to share...

It's about frequency...

I was revealed information this morning that people have to change their frequencies, and we are going through extraordinary challenges, and we have to integrate the challenges in order to change our personal frequencies.

So, by virtue of going through the difficulties of what I went through this year, I'm a different person. I have to take that person, and share it with the world.

My frequency has been changed, it's been altered.

And I was thinking about all the people who have gone through unique things this last year, and if they do not share it, if they do not share it with their family and the world and the people that they are associated with - if they don't share that - something happens to them.

On some level, they get sick, until they recognize that their frequency has to be shared, they will be in a holding pattern, it's almost as if they have a dis-ease. Do you see what I mean by this? ...I think that is what's happening. The more that our frequencies are changing, the more that is being revealed.

Why did this "resonate" so deeply? I'm not sure, but it felt like she was talking directly to me.

This is similar to a bit that David Beidny spoke on the PARACAST. I transcribed a short quote for a posting on this blog. I'll add that David did NOT use any groovy new-age terms like frequency.

What's the frequency, Kenneth?

I had a friend in New York who dressed up as "Kenneth" for halloween in the mid-80's, long before the REM song. (it was very funny)

The term came from an event in NYC in the 80's, where Dan Rather was mugged, and his assailants repeatedly asked: "What's the frequency Kenneth!"

Wow, this Kenneth story is some seriously weird shit @_@

Also, from Wikipedia:

"The title of the song is not original to the band, which guitarist Peter Buck explains in the liner notes to In Time: The Best of R.E.M. 1988–2003. It refers to an incident in New York City in 1986, where news anchor Dan Rather was the victim of an unprovoked attack by one or two assailants who, between beatings, would ask, "what's the frequency, Kenneth?"[5] (although the phrase Dan Rather says he actually heard was, "Kenneth, what is the frequency?"). One of the assailants has been since identified as William Tager, who attacked Rather because he thought the media had taken control of him. Furthermore, in a 2001 Harper's article ("The frequency: Solving the riddle of the Dan Rather beating") this incident was tenuously linked by Paul Limbert Allman back to the late Postmodern literary giant Donald Barthelme's writings, which contained recurrences of a character named Kenneth and in the text “Kierkegaard Unfair to Schlegel” asks, "What is the frequency?" [6] The phrase "What's the frequency, Kenneth?" is also used in Daniel Clowes' surreal comic Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron; it is supposedly used as a formal greeting and a way to contact a mystical figure [emphasys mine]. The phrase occurs in "Final Transmission", the first episode of the 1986 TV series Crime Story. The Beauty Shop Slayer character blurts out the phrase amongst other non-sequiturs whilst slaughtering the customers and staff of a beauty shop in the opening scene."

And from the William Tager wikipedia page:

"William Tager (born November 9, 1947) [of course! ;)]
As of 2007[update] he is incarcerated in Sing Sing prison in New York state. Tager was denied parole in 2007, and can reappear before the parole board in October 2010.[1]"

Maybe something cool will happen in Oct this year :-P

I remember watching Dan Rather after that, the only time I ever tuned in to his show. He was all bruised, and he ended the show by raising a fist and saying, "Courage!" He's a character. I met him once in person and because my hair was long, he raised his fist and said to me, "Rock'n'roll forever!" Oh that Dan Rather.
