Nicky here. It is my first time writing a newsletter so I am excited to share with everyone what myself and Perry have been up to throughout the month of June! If you would like to read our first newsletter written by Perry, you can do so by clicking HERE.
June was a very busy month for us. Towards the back end of May and into early June, a lot of my time was spent developing my video/sound editing skills during the process of editing the raw footage from our first presentation which I am now happy to say is completed and uploaded onto our YouTube channel – we hope that if you have watched the uploaded videos that you found them useful in some way! We have not got the whole process “down” as of yet and are still learning about the best ways to use the equipment we now have alongside the implications this has on the editing process. I also took some time “training” Perry in the same endeavours as we felt it was essential that we both learn how to perform these tasks – although it has been a challenging and time consuming process, we feel that in the future this will become very beneficial to everything that we already do and things we still want to do later down the line.
Alongside this, there were a number of other technical issues that I resolved. I discovered that the camera we use for shooting our YouTube discussions and seminar footage had a faulty HDMI port meaning that our Ninja Assassin field monitor could not be used. This was a big issue as the Ninja Assassin has a number of crucial functions including a back-up process so that if anything goes wrong during the recording, we do not lose all the footage. Our camera is still with the manufacturer in the process of being repaired (luckily still under warranty!) so hopefully some time later this week we will be back to full strength and have the camera back with us.
Further to this, there were a number of website issues that I felt were important to rectify. I discovered that the automated email notification system from our main site was not working at all meaning that this whole time, none of our registered subscribers were receiving email alerts as and when new blog posts had been published on our site! Now this has been fixed, all registered subscribers to our main site should receive email alerts. The publishing of this very newsletter is our first proper test of whether we have succeeded in this task so if you did receive an email from us – YES!
Moving onto a serious matter, when I created our site and forum almost a year ago now (jeez, time flies when you are having fun!), a friend of mine offered that I could host the website on his server and so I accepted. Up until very recently, this had worked out well and I had not experienced any issues with the service. However, something very alarming occurred around 10 days ago. It turned out that one of my friend’s sites on the same hosting account got “hacked” and the hosting service shut down all sites linked to his account in order to safeguard the other sites from being at risk. Luckily, my site and the forum was not compromised however due to the hosting company shutting down my friend’s account, it meant that my site was “offline” and this lasted for around 48 hours. Because of what happened, my friend chose to upgrade his server to make it more protected from this type of incidence occurring again and as a result, a data migration task had to be completed. Again, this meant that the site was not accessible for a prolonged period of time and once it was available again, I had noticed a number of glitches that occurred which I spent a lot of time ironing out with my friend and the hosting service. I am happy to say that things seem to be working as normal on the site and forum again but I am in the process of exploring a viable, longer term solution as I still feel there could be issues and points of “weakness” going forwards mainly as I am still on my friend’s account and my site could be adversely affected by external circumstances relating to my friend’s soul based attractions. I feel very lucky to have been provided with a “warning” where nothing too serious or detrimental occurred but it has highlighting this major issue to me which I will be spending time addressing as a matter of priority this coming month.
In other news, both myself and Perry have noticed that the forum has been picking up in activity over the past couple of weeks which is awesome! There have been some cool discussions going on that we have started ourselves as well as getting involved in others’ threads which has been fun. Also, this has meant that we have spent more time feeling about issues of love that we felt had to be addressed and upheld in order to maintain the condition of love on the forum to the best of our abilities by ensuring it is safe a place as possible for sincere people who wish to learn more about Divine Truth without being negatively affected by others who had been engaged for unloving motivations. Again, we hope current forum members and guests are drawing benefit from the discussions going on over there.
Perry and myself have thoroughly enjoyed creating more material for our YouTube channel. We love having discussions between ourselves about what we feel we would like to share with others based on our own recent learning experiences which we feel others could benefit from. We have found that the best approach is to pick a topic of discussion and just “go with it” as we had previously found if we spend too much time intellectually trying to plan how our discussion would go, we kept messing up and the flow between ourselves would become disjointed and unnatural. We have loved doing things this way as we are realising how amazing it is talking from our hearts and have found how much easily we can be prompted by our guides as our discussion unfolds. It is also really great because the general way of things on Earth right now is to focus on getting things down intellectually and we have been finding that the opposite works best for us. One funny thing that I’d like to share with everyone is that it took us over 2 hours to record a 90 second long YouTube introduction video for our channel along with a new 8 minute Divine Truth Hub welcome video (now found on the home page of our main site) in comparison with completing our actual 40 minute discussion about our seminar reflections straight through in one clean take that we did earlier in the day! This was because we had to stick to a specific structure of what we wanted to share about the main features of the site and YouTube channel which was easy to understand and follow for any newcomers – so we had many laughs about this as you can imagine.
In more exciting news, myself, Perry and Peter (who you may know from the Divine Truth Podcast and previous videos on our channel) have confirmed with the venue our second presentation in London for 30th July 2016. We all agreed and felt it was best to focus our next series of talks on “The Human Soul” and in particular, crucial principles that we feel are essential for anyone who wants to grow closer to God have at least a foundation level of knowledge about. We are planning to present what we have come to learn about the human soul so if you are interested in coming along, check out our events page by clicking HERE for more details!
Perry and I also really wanted to purchase our own second camera to use at future events, so we are happy to say that we managed to scrape together enough donations as well as contributing from our personal funds to purchase a second video camcorder which will be used to record all of your beautiful faces at our future presentations! This has worked out well for us as this second camera has been deployed as a “back up” to record some of our YouTube videos whilst our resident camera has been sent off for repair. We did not know things would have come to pass like this so we have been fortunate about how things have worked out which has allowed us to continue sharing regular content on our channel in our usual camera’s absence. We would like to express our thanks to Lena & Igor for sharing the knowledge they had acquired over the years regarding camera equipment and what factors would be important for us to consider before making our purchases.
With all of the above going on, again, we ensured that we gave ourselves enough quality time to work on our own emotions that have been coming up concurrently. We have realised that this is really the most important activity of them all as we know by focusing on our emotions and relationship with God, this has the absolute number one largest impact on how successfully we engage in our desire to share Divine Truth and assist others. Perry and myself have really enjoyed watching the first assistance group “Developing My Will To Love” presented by Jesus and planned by both Jesus & Mary, so we would like to express a huge thanks to these guys for gifting us such amazing knowledge, Igor & Lena for helping Jesus with the video recording & editing process, all the other helpers at the groups and everyone else who turned up and had the courage to engage and ask questions! The information Jesus presented has been incredibly useful in the way myself and Perry have gone about tackling areas of our own progression so we have really enjoyed taking part from literally the opposite side of the world! We are really looking forward to begin working our way through the videos from the second assistance group and are waiting with bated breath to hear the wisdom Jesus has already imparted with those who were in attendance.
Finally, I’d like to say a big thank you as always to everyone who has ever donated to us in the past, particularly those who donate to us on a regular basis. We are feeling such an awesome sense of gratitude to those of you who do choose to donate to us through the generosity and gift of your own hearts to us. Perry and myself are still working through our money injuries (which we have realised is more extensive then we first envisaged) and whilst we still have a long way to go to receiving enough funds to pay for our bare minimum living expenses, we do receive enough funds to pay for the website and server maintenance costs which is awesome. As mentioned in our previous newsletter, Perry still has a job he spends around 50% of his waking hours on and I am still getting by on funds I had acquired from my previous job. It is quite a nerve wracking and just absolutely crazy part of mine and Perry’s lives right now where every day is completely unique and brings us many challenges but we are loving it and we realise this is what life is about and we feel so alive! We really believe in the gifts we are offering to others as not only being beneficial now, but hopefully in years to come as God’s Truth grows and reaches more people over the coming years. We are just so excited about what God has in store for not just ourselves but everyone else on the planet in helping to bring God’s Kingdom as it is in the spirit world to the Earth. It is a desire that burns so strongly within me and it is the same dream I share with God and an increasing number of others. It is a truly amazing time for us all to be together and present in each other’s company on Earth during this time.
I could really talk the leg off a chair so I think I better wrap up now – that’s all from me so thanks for taking the time to read our second newsletter – I’m happy that I managed to squeeze in one or two “cheap gags” (a term for goofy jokes in the UK) during the process of writing this newsletter! You probably didn’t find them funny….but if you did, *high five*
