Suffice to say, not only did we meet, we connected on so many levels, we ended up staying in touch (and have met several times) ever since. For those of you who haven’t heard, Fire the Grid is a one hour synchronized meditation event set to take place all over the world beginning at 11:11 GMT on July 17, 2007.
Please read Shelley’s amazing personal story at Fire the Grid and be sure to check out the World Clock in order to confirm what time 11:11 GMT will be in your particular time zone (you will be shown the corresponding time in your time zone provided the clock on your computer is set to your correct local time). I truly hope you will be moved to participate on July 17.
For those of you who would like to know even more about the origins of Fire the Grid (and what comes next), I highly recommend you listen to a wonderful one hour interview with Shelley that was conducted by Maureen Moss of The World Puja Network (on June 5, 2007). You will have to join The World Puja Network in order to listen, however, there is no cost to join or to listen (unless you wish to purchase the recording). Once you join and log in, click on the Archives link, scroll to June, 2007, then simply click on Shelley’s photo and the interview will play.
On a related note (no pun intended), the beautiful music that you hear on the Fire the Grid website is the creation of two very talented musicians named Bradfield and Anael. Bradfield is the composer and his partner Anael is the vocalist.
In addition to their contributions as musicians, Bradfield and Anael have been the steady driving force behind the incredible success of Fire the Grid. Bradfield built and maintains the website while Anael handles and coordinates all of the administration. It is a huge job that they have both selflessly and unconditionally done (and continue to do).
Although you will find a half hour of their music generously offered for free on the Fire the Grid site, I would like to encourage you to check out the entirety of their inspired creations at Apsis Music.
