Earthquake Kills 1,700 in 3 Asia Nations

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan Oct 8, 2005 — A powerful 7.6-magnitude earthquake near the Pakistan-India border Saturday reduced villages to rubble, triggered landslides and flattened an apartment building. More than 1,700 people were killed in both nations, and a Pakistan army spokesman called the devastation "a national tragedy."

In the capitals of Pakistan, India and Afghanistan, buildings shook and walls swayed for about a minute, and panicked people ran from their homes and offices. Tremors continued for hours afterward. Communications throughout the region were cut.

About 1,000 people were killed in Pakistani Kashmir, said Sardar Mohammed Anwar, the top government official in the area.

"This is my conservative guess, and the death toll could be much higher," Anwar told Pakistan's Aaj television station.

He said most homes in Muzaffarabad, the area's capital, were damaged, and schools and hospitals had collapsed.

I am very worried i have several friends from Pakistan and in Northen India also so please let us pray for peace in the world we going trough heavy times.

about earthquake October 11, 2005 6:46 AM

By Mary Robinson Reynolds

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, Id like to say once again:lets crank up our visioning power.

Of myself I can not do this

Together we can create far reaching Light & Love to embrace the people of South Asia.

While individually we have all power, that power is magnified when two or more minds come together in the spirit of harmony and good will with a single objective or goal in mind.

I would invite each and every one of us to remain free of judgment or fear about the planetary changes occurring now including South Asia, as well as our own southern coast and the Indian Ocean Tsunami. For analyzing 'why?seduces us into the lower energies of judgment and fear, which of course creates more of the same!

What is needed most at this time all over the World is the healing, soothing balm of Light & Love pouring out upon the people whose lives and communities are being hugely reorganized at higher levels. If you feel guided to give money to worthy organizations, do so.

We all need a healing and an easier realignment of the planet. We need to seek Peace and Light and Love. We need to practice, practice, practice getting ourselves up and into these energies to create the greatest good. This is what we came here to do. This is what we are meant to do to assist humanity for at this time and for all time.

Lets choose a peaceful, uplifted mind when thinking of help and services arriving and flowing into the cities and country sides with the greatest immediate needs.

With full and Loving hearts lets send Light and Love to every corner of the planet.

It was Winston Churchill who said, When you are in hell keep going.

See all people going forward through these life altering experiences. See communities of people lifting up and helping their fellow man in the greatest and kindest of ways.

See the good in all people.

Many thoughts will flow through our minds in times such as these. We can choose which thoughts to fuel.

Thoughts of resentment and judgment about our government, about this, about that.Interrupt these thoughts.

Seek first to understand
Be a Love-finder not a fault-finder.
Be One with Intuitive Understanding.

We withhold our Love and Light with fear mentality, which accomplishes only one thing: a lot of wasted hot air that goes where? Absolutely nowhere. Begin to practice containing your judgment with the healing power of Light & Love ―and as with a hot air balloon, your perception will rise to give you a much greater view!

Rise up in your thinking.
Vibrate High

Try it.

Doing so will heal your mind, restoring wholeness. As you are restored to wholeness'wholeness of mind, body and spirit your healing grace affects all those who come into your energy field as well as all those who you expand your energy to.

You will feel so much better energetically when you surrender your need to criticize and to be right. Work daily at stopping yourself before you launch your stuff at other people who you do not know, who you have not first attempted to understand.

Seek first to understand.
Be One with Intuitive Understanding.

Here is what I recommend:

As you watch or read the news of the latest planetary changes and the thousands of lives of those affected, begin to see families being reunited.
See people helping people.
See aide coming in abundantly.
See monetary assistance from all over the world coming through and channeling out quickly and easily and orderly.
See the best and the greatest in all people coming through.
See their fear being eased.
See angels embracing and holding people up in their grief.
See scenarios filled with kindness and grace.
See best-case scenarios.
See that there is more than enough for every single person in need of help.
See the long arms of God reaching around the hurt and the wounded, the broken and the lost.

We are all one.We are connected. The very essence of our beings connects us. That which breathes us, connects us.You can send Light and Love and let the power of this transformative energy uplift all people into their greatest, highest selves.

When you are in Light and Love energy you are in a place of highest power and highest vibrational language. When you speak you will be helpful instead of harmful with what you think and feel may help and better a situation. The Divine solutions are the highest and greatest solutions in all that is in need of change and transformation.

In Light & Greatest Love,

Thank you for posting this... October 11, 2005 7:28 AM

and lest we not forget about their struggles and what life holds for them now that many have lost their loved ones, their homes, their livelihoods. This will be an ongoing struggle and tragedy for them as those down in the South of our country have experienced, the Tsunami survivors and victims and those in Guatemala in the mudslides too. Our earth surely has taken its toll on human life and created immeasurable human suffering. We must send them love, light and prayers for protection and assistance and many angels bathed in God's light. And any other means of support we can send their way also in the means of physical and monetary support.  peace, blessings love and light, may our prayers burn warm with love & light for their individual plights. ---ginger  [ send green star]

Dear Giasemi and Ginger,

I agree with you.  I feel as if Evil Forces are taking over, while we need love, compassion, prayer, and, most of all, peace.  Let's help one another, economically and spiritually.  This should be a world of HARMONY and NOT war.

Strong Aftershock In Pakistan October 12, 2005 2:40 PM

Strong Aftershock Hits Pakistan's Capital

28 minutes ago, Associated Press

A strong aftershock shook Pakistan's capital early Thursday morning, four days after an earthquake killed tens of thousands and left millions homeless.

Buildings moved for a few seconds during the short temblor. The magnitude of the aftershock was not immediately clear, or if it caused any damage.

Saturday's 7.6-magnitude quake demolished whole towns, mostly in the Himalayan region of Kashmir.

The aftershock was also felt in Abbotabad, in the foothills of the area worst hit in the main quake, where it shook buildings but did not appear to cause any damage.

The death toll from Saturday's quake was believed to be more than 35,000, and tens of thousands more were injured.

Saturday's quake was centered about 100 kilometers (60 miles) northeast of Islamabad in the forested mountains of Pakistani Kashmir. At least 22 aftershocks followed within 24 hours, including a 6.2-magnitude temblor.
