Mercury Retrograde In Sagittarius: Redefining Beliefs and Aspirations

Fri, 2017-12-08 15:00

Mercury began its latest edition of its retrograde process on December 3, which will last until December 22/23. In the weeks and especially days leading up to it, we start to notice its effects, as Mercury slows down and comes to a stop before moving the other way.

Mercury retrograde is famous for the problematic effects it often has on communication technology, transactions, motor vehicles, anything with moving parts, and commuting in general. We could experience some challenges, misunderstandings, and errors around our communications, numbers/details, and commerce, as well as changes, cancellations, or delays in our schedules. We may also feel more challenged when we are doing excessive analytical work without using our internal guidance.

Although there is a higher probability of experiencing more of these problems during this time, they won’t necessarily apply to every situation. Some people may not notice these energies as much, depending on what types of things they are doing and how the astrology is playing out unique to the person’s astrological blueprint.

Mercury Retrograde can also be a good time to revisit or redo tasks, projects, ideas, or anything else that was initiated in the past. It can give us a different perspective or shift in thinking that can help us to approach these things in ways we wouldn’t have done so before. This may also be a period of reconnecting with old friends or family, or others you haven’t seen in a while.

The Deeper Purpose of Mercury Retrograde

Ultimately, Mercury Retrograde is a time for us to recalibrate our minds and certain areas of our lives. It is a period in which we may receive important insights and see things in a new light. During and following the retrograde, certain areas of our lives can go through changes or shifts, or we can experience a reorientation of some sort.

In the post-retrograde period, we move forward with some sort of new awareness and adjustment. Some people can even experience more significant transformations, depending on their natal astrology chart based on their exact birth time.

The things that you have been doing or putting into place in the two to three weeks leading up to this period could determine how and where this energy plays out. It is also possible that there could have been changes put in place then which may go through a sorting out process during this time. Perhaps in that period there could have been unknown variables, both positive and negative, that were either unseen or hadn’t been conceived yet, which may become apparent over the coming weeks.

The sign(s) and element(s) in which Mercury retrograde travels shows the energy we are reorienting ourselves with. Also, to go with that, if you are more familiar with your natal astrology chart, your house(s) or any planetary placements being affected will show more specifically what areas of life you will be experiencing its energy in. For the astrologically literate, it began at 29 degrees of Sagittarius and will retrograde all the way to 13 degrees of Sagittarius before turning forward again.

Mercury Retrogrades Currently Occurring in Fire Signs

Every year and a half roughly, it transitions from one element to another. We began transitioning from Earth to Fire since last winter’s Mercury retrograde. However, this marks the first of a series of three that will be completely in Fire signs for the next year, the others being in Aries and Leo.

Mercury retrograding in Earth signs prior to this has been a time in which many of us have had to learn to be more practical, organized, structured, productive, grounded, or in some cases, more attentive to our physical health in relation to nutrition or lifestyle. The transition from Earth to Fire over the last year has been shifting the focus toward re-calibrating ourselves around our passions, inspirations, and creativity, and potentially helping us to be more courageous, confident, assertive, and active.

For further reading on this topic and to understand Mercury Retrograde more in depth, I recommend checking out this recently published book  by Gary P. Caton.

Began With a Conjunction to Saturn Aligned With the Galactic Center

This Mercury Retrograde began near the Galactic Center in Sagittarius, which is where last year’s retrograde in December/January ended, although it travelled mostly in Capricorn at that time. This could suggest that for many people this period is about continuing, revisiting, or evolving an area of your life similar or related to what was happening then. Perhaps you are picking up where you left off and/or you are taking a new approach to something.

Astrologically, the Galactic Center has the potential to be a powerful source of inspiration and could trigger new awareness and levels of consciousness. It can be revolutionary or evolutionary, and contacts to this point can help to transmit ideas, intuitions, and perspectives that are beyond what we normally are able to perceive. It can also amplify the energies of the planet(s) travelling there and help to plant seeds associated with what the planet represents.

Mercury started its retrograde while in a conjunction with Saturn at the Galactic Center and also in aspect with Mars in Libra. This part of it was strongest up until December 6 but still has an influence throughout the retrograde. The alignment with the Galactic Center amplifies the energies of Mercury and Saturn.

As mentioned above, Mercury is associated with the mind, communication, writing, information, as well commerce and commuting. With Saturn, this can manifest as powerful focus and concentration around these Mercury related areas. It can also manifest as general Saturn themes related to structure, discipline, commitment, caution, responsibility, restraint, or needing to be realistic so that we can achieve tangible results.

Mars involved with this can help to push and give us some drive to apply ourselves toward something. This is also reflected in the fact that it will be going into Scorpio during this retrograde, where it expresses itself very strongly.

Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius

Sagittarius is the sign of beliefs, opinions, perspectives, exploration, travel, and higher education. It is also associated with marketing, sales, publishing, and media. It is idealistic, philosophical, and expansive. This energy can also be judgemental, blunt, argumentative, and have a ‘know-it-all’ complex. These are some of the ways in which the Mercury retrograde-related developments or challenges can manifest to ultimately help us move forward in a new way during the post retrograde period after December 22.

Considering that Saturn is a big part of this too, there could be a theme of needing to get real about certain beliefs, revisiting belief structures, or addressing limitations in our perspectives or otherwise. This could also be about applying the Saturn energies toward other Sagittarian themes as mentioned already.

Journey of Mercury Retrograde

Dec 4  – Mercury retrograde began at 6:34am Universal Time

Dec 6 – Mercury conjunct Saturn, both sextile Mars (mentioned above)

Dec 9/10 Mercury Trine Uranus, square Chiron with Venus square Neptune. This period can be insightful, good ideas can come through, and potentially some nice surprises may arise as well. Issues surrounding our wounds and blockages can come up at this time as well. Venus is also square Neptune, in which there can be themes of idealism, illusion, fantasy, spiritual connection, oneness, or even confusion and deception around our relationships. Some of those themes may even apply to financial matters.

Dec 12/13 Mercury conjunct Sun. This marks the halfway point of Mercury retrograde and can be one of the most insightful periods and a powerful time of realizations. Some people may also experience more of the common Mercury retrograde complications during this time.

Dec 14/15 Mercury conjunct Venus. This can be a great time to reconnect with friends and loved ones, potentially in a new/different way, which can be expansive, explorative, and perhaps educational. Alternatively, this can help us to look at matters related to money or pleasure in a different way.

Dec 15 – 17 Mercury Trine North Node with Sun Trine Uranus. Communications, thoughts, connections, or events happening during this time could be related to consideration of our future and what we are working towards. There can be pleasant surprises, innovation, or new possibilities, or things can be unusual and even exciting.

Dec 22/23 Mercury Retrograde finishes and it goes stationary direct. At this time we begin to proceed forward with some adjustments, new awareness, or clarity based on what we have learned and what has transpired during the retrograde. You may notice part of this energy on this day, but as Mercury picks up speed in its forward motion over the coming weeks, things will get more defined and we can make progress in a different way.

It’s Official – We Now Know That “UFOs” or “UAP” Are Real – So Are They Extraterrestrial or Not?

Fri, 2017-12-08 14:44

It’s almost 2018, and the subject of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) or Unidentified Ariel Phenomenon (UAP, a term that seems to be the new “official wording” from government personnel) is now a verified fact within the mainstream. Just as certain as we are of  several different concepts that come from repeatable hard science, or information about other phenomena in other subject areas dealing with observation, we (humanity) are just as certain about UFOs.

When Ex Canadian Defence minister Paul Hellyer said that “UFOs are as real as the airplanes flying overhead,” he wasn’t joking. Documents, along with live testimony from dozens, if not hundreds of people from within “high level” government and intelligence groups have also been speaking about the topic quite publicly.

There are literally too many examples to name, from four star generals, to directors of military contractors like Lockheed Martin, directors of intelligence agencies, heads of major military committee’s, like NATO, and much more.

The latest examples would be Steve Justice, a recently retired 30 year director of Lockheed Skunkworks (aerospace), and now on as a director at To The Stars, who recently stated:

“This is a concept for an international point-to-point transportation craft that will erase the current travel limits of distance and time.  It mimics the capabilities observed in unidentified aerial phenomenon by employing a drive system that alters space-time metric.  We have glimpses of how the physics of this works, but we need to harvest technologies from the Science Division to “realize” the capability.”  – Steve Justice, Aerospace Division Director

By making this statement, he is relaying that there are unidentified craft that are using these capabilities to travel what we would consider to be vast distances.

One of his predecessors, Ben Rich (2nd director of Lockheed Shunkworks) also made some very interesting comments. You can read more about that,  and access those comments here.

Robert Bigelow, the Founder of Bigelow aerospace recently went public stating that he knows for a fact that “ET” is here. You can see that interview and read more about it here.

Sure, witness testimony is not enough to draw a conclusion, but given their positions and long records of “credibility,” it’s almost ridiculous to ignore. If it were one or two people there would be reasons to doubt, but when there are multiple hundreds, we know something is up, especially when their encounters with “UFOs” has already been verified by their employer, the government, and by official previously classified documents.

Since many do not consider witness testimony credible, no matter who it comes from, it’s always important to mention the documents, the evidence of radar trackings and more.

Obviously, this is a topic that still challenges many people, rubs them the wrong way and conflicts with long held belief systems. This has been a pattern with many subjects and new discoveries throughout human history, things change slowly over time, but with our rapid technological development,  which is still increasing at an exponential rate (don’t forget the black budget world), we don’t seem to be that far off. In fact, we already seem to be there.

“We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects, and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity. Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do it.”  – Ben Rich (source)

Remember, UFO doesn’t exactly 100 percent equate to extraterrestrial, however, it’s one of many possibilities and probabilities that has its own evidence to make that assertion.

The documents that have been released by several governments, intelligence agencies and cases via The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) indicate objects and encounters (mostly military encounters) with objects travelling at unattainable speeds, and performing maneuvers that no known aircraft of ours can, in some cases defying our own understanding of physics.

“As the F-4 approached a range of 25 nautical miles it lost all instrumentation and communications. When the F-4 turned away from the object and apparently was no longer a threat to it, the aircraft regained all instrumentation and communications. Another brightly lighted object came out of the original object. The second object headed straight toward the F4. ”  (source)

We even have publications in peer-reviewed journals being put out about extraterrestrial hypothesis exists. Here is one example, here is another.  Here’s another interesting one from 1994 talking about physical evidence related to the phenomenon, which we now have more of today.

Below is a great little talk from Jacques Vallee talking about how can start learning from all of these encounters. He’s a computer scientist and astronomer who has done work for NASA, and more. He’s most table for co-developing the first computerized mapping of Mars and for his work at SRI International on the network information centre for ARPANET.

Government Deception

This would be an appropriate time to state that, obviously, our governments have deceived us on so many levels, it’s more than likely that as more information continues to make its way into the public domain, there will be good reasons to have a heightened sense scepticism when they speak about UFOs and/or extraterrestrials, as with anything else.

The mainstream world is full of twisted agendas and attempts to alter our perception for truth and profit, or other agenda’s that are not really in the people’s best interest, but rather the ‘1 percent’s’ best interest. The global war against drugs, or terrorism are perfect examples. Especially with the fact that ‘false flag’ terrorism has become more transparent.

To get a clear picture of this topic, which is almost impossible to do the deeper you get into it, one must do independent research rather than rely on the same media which has tight ties to corporate and government interests, under the guise of “national security.”

This is not to say that there are not good people, with pure intentions, just doing their job within these arenas. It’s a complicated topic, but when discussing it one must always keep the Deep State in the back of their mind, as it controls the entire geo-political perceptive, in most cases.

There are efforts being made to alert the public, Tom Delonge’s To The Stars effort is one of them, but this is a very compartmentalized topic. He is getting information from those from within the intelligence world, but who are they getting their information from and is it correct? Is it truthful? Or is there some sort of spin on it, for whatever reason? And do those who are relaying this information even realize that there could be as spin?

Who knows what’s really going on.

Is A False Flag Alien Invasion In The Works? Wernher Von-Brauns Colleague Seems To Think So

Are there really legitimate reasons for the cover-up after so many years? Was it justified? I believe humanity is meant to live in transparency, and we and can handle this type of information, and we were meant to receive it. Acknowledging certain truths about the nature of reality is an important step in our human evolution, as it provides opportunities for us to move beyond paradigms of the past, and move forward to where we are supposed to go, and perhaps that is to the stars.

The corporate and financial take-over of our democratic system has contributed to the secrecy, no doubt. This topic has huge technological and intellectual implications that could completely transform our planet and help create new ways of doing things here. And, as with everything else, those who are making billions and trillions off of the old way of doing things might also have a say.

What type of propulsion systems are these craft using?

Sure, we know UFOs are real, but mainstream media (as well as government) have a long history of taking real events and using them for their advantage, and usually do so by twisting our perception what’s really going on.

With this topic, as with every other, we simply can’t rely on government and official intelligence people all the time, with complete credibility. It’s important to remember that there is a lot of disinformation that has infiltrated this field, and one must always use their discernment.

Are They Extraterrestrial? 

The existence of UFOs is verified, in several different ways, but extraterrestrial intelligence is still a different story. There are multiple factors that lead to the extraterrestrial hypothesis. As mentioned above, before UFOs were officially “verified,” there was good reason to believe in their existence, and now it’s official. In the same way, there is now evidence to believe that some of these sophisticated craft are in fact extraterrestrial.

“There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, by other civilizations. Who they are, where they are from, and what they want should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not be the subject of ‘rubishing’ by tabloid newspapers.” (source) – Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee

Many people, like Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, have come forth expressing the same thing, and have flat out said that they have knowledge of extraterrestrial intelligence as it related to the UFO phenomenon.

Here’s an FBI document  discussing extraterrestrial bodies and craft (page 21 & 22) , here’s an article with an interesting CIA document linked in it referring to extraterrestrial bodies and a military encounter.  There are several examples one can locate within the literature, which are  both benevolent and malevolent in nature.

Below is an interesting discussion featuring Richard Dolan, one of the worlds foremost authorities on the topic. He goes in a little deeper about the extraterrestrial hypothesis. If you want to learn more about the topic, he’s a great place to start.

“It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that they are space ships from another solar system. I think that they possibly are manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race that may have been investigating our Earth for centuries.” – Herman Oberth, founding father of modern rocketry (source)

 

Just How Many Shots are on the CDC Vaccine Schedule?

Fri, 2017-12-08 11:26
By Katie Weisman and the World Mercury Project Team

World Mercury Project gets questions about the number of vaccines given to young children in America today. Different articles cite different numbers and the totals can be confusing. This article and chart are designed to clarify the vaccine schedule and explain why the numbers may not always “add up.”  To be accurate, wording about total numbers of vaccines should include phrases like, “may receive up to” or “typically” or “between X and Y” number of vaccines. The individual numbers for any given child will vary depending on the specific vaccines used in his pediatrician’s practice or clinic.

Antigen Totals

To start, there is a difference between the number of vaccines given and the number of antigens given. According to the National Cancer Institute, an antigen is:

Any substance that causes the body to make an immune response against that substance. Antigens include toxins, chemicals, bacteria, viruses, or other substances that come from outside the body. Body tissues and cells, including cancer cells, also have antigens on them that can cause an immune response. These antigens can also be used as markers in laboratory tests to identify those tissues or cells.

In any given vaccine, there will be one or more antigens. A vaccine that contains only one antigen is called monovalent. Examples include the Hiberix, ActHib and PedvaxHib vaccines, each of which contains a single antigen for Haemophilus influenzae type b, a bacterium that can cause meningitis.  This single antigen can also, however, be combined into a polyvalent (or multivalent) vaccine such as Pentacel which adds antigens for diphtheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis and inactivated polio; Pentacel contains five antigens in total, hence its name.

A polyvalent or multivalent vaccine can either contain multiple antigens for different diseases (as with Pentacel) or it can contain multiple antigens for different strains or serotypes of the same disease. An example of this would be Pneumovax 23 which contains antigens for 23 different serotypes of pneumococcal bacteria.  Annual influenza vaccines can be either trivalent (three strains) or quadrivalent (four strains). The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) determine the different strains included in the vaccines each flu season based on the strains that are circulating internationally.

While not “officially counted,” some of the other ingredients in vaccines are also antigens. Since they all provoke immune responses, thimerosal, aluminum adjuvants, antibiotics, eggs, saponins and other ingredients should also be considered antigens.

So, if you count the number of injections that a child receives as the number of “vaccines,” the number of vaccines will always be lower than the number of antigens received. The two numbers will never be equal because there are several multivalent vaccines containing multiple antigens that are not available as individual vaccines. The most widely used of these are the MMR (which contains antigens to measles, mumps and rubella viruses), and the DTaP and Tdap vaccines (which contain antigens for diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis).

Brand Variations 

Next, you need to consider how many doses of each vaccine a child receives. This can vary with the brand of vaccine regardless of the number of antigens involved. For example, there are two brands of rotavirus vaccine, Rotarix and RotaTeq. Children receiving Rotarix will be given two doses, while children receiving RotaTeq will be given three doses. These types of variation in dosage are usually based on how many doses were needed to produce sufficient antibody responses in most children in the clinical trials. Once a child has started a vaccine series with one brand, that brand should be used for the remaining vaccines in the series.

Individual Health and History

To further complicate matters, if a child misses a vaccine or a series of vaccines, the “catch up” schedule may be different depending on the child’s age and medical history. To understand this better, it may be helpful to read the four pages of footnotes following the current CDC childhood schedule for 2017. It is also worth noting that the CDC schedule is typically updated once per year—so older articles may cite different numbers of vaccines compared to newer articles.

The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) list of all approved vaccines (for children and adults) includes the links to all of their package inserts.

Taking all of this information into account, the summary chart below reflects a typical number of vaccines received by a typical child (up to the age of 18), who receives his or her vaccines on schedule and who has no significant medical conditions that warrant adjustments. The additional information at the bottom of the chart presents possible vaccine exposures while the child’s mom was pregnant.

The bottom line is that kids are getting a lot more vaccines and being exposed to a lot more antigens than they were in the past. The exact number of vaccines is ultimately less important than the overall trend requiring all children to get increasing numbers of vaccines and antigens. CDC has failed to conduct long-term safety studies of the expanding schedule and the combinations of vaccines given concurrently. Parents have a right to demand better science for their children.

Why Men With Dark Intentions Destroyed The Library of Alexandria

Fri, 2017-12-08 09:58

Ancient civilizations are a fascinating topic, and it’s clear we have so much to learn from them when it comes to our way of life, our health, our technology, science, nature, consciousness, and the nature of reality itself. Be it information in the form of written text, or advanced ancient structures like the Kailasa temple, one of 32 cave temples and monasteries located within the Ellora Caves in India, their knowledge — how they acquired it and how they constructed their masterpieces — remains a complete mystery.

With all of our modern day technology, knowledge, and wisdom, there is still no way to accomplish some of the feats of civilizations past, feats that required an extremely advanced understanding of mathematics, physics, and more. There is evidence that many ancient achievements required an extremely advanced form of technology as well, and many examples to prove these assertions.

Another fascinating point to make is the fact that many groundbreaking discoveries within the realm of quantum mechanics, as well as neuroscience, closely resemble the teachings of several ancient civilizations and native American populations. This is why today, there are conferences held every single year between academics and spiritual leaders, like Tibetan monks, to discuss how they relate, and books like Blackfoot Physics continue to be published.

Sometimes it seems we are re-learning much of the knowledge kept by the ancient world.

This is exactly why the burning of the library of Alexandria was such a tragedy. It was one of the greatest libraries in human history, holding a vast archive of manuscripts and books from all over the ancient world, and what our ancients would have themselves considered ancient. It was built after the famous Alexander the Great conquered Egypt and acquired knowledge from all parts of the globe. From East to West, the teachings of multiple civilizations throughout human history up to that time could be found in the great library.

The books contained in this library touched upon every subject that concerns humanity, from health, science, and astronomy to geology, philosophy, mysticism, magic, knowledge of the spiritual world, and much more.

Manly P. Hall describes it as follows in The Secret Teachings of All Ages :

Prior to the Christian Era seven hundred thousand of the most valuable books, written upon parchment, papyrus, vellum, and was, and also tablets of stone terra cotta, and wood, were gathered from all parts of the ancient world and housed in Alexandria, in buildings specially prepared for the purpose. This magnificent repository of knowledge was destroyed by a series of three fires.

It was burned down in approximately A.D. 389  by Caesar, from the order of Theodosius I. Also known as Theodosius the Great, he was a Roman Emperor from AD 379 to AD 395, ruling over both the Eastern and the Western halves of the Roman Empire.

Libraries as such were well known to multiple ancient civilizations in Egypt, Mesopotamia, Asia Minor, Syria, and Greece, who were very impressed by Oriental knowledge. There is literary evidence of Greek individuals visiting Egypt specifically to acquire knowledge: e.g., HerodotusPlato (particularly in Phaedrus and Timaeus), Theophrastus, and Eudoxus of Cnidus (as detailed by Diogenes Laërtius in the 3rd century CE).

According toe H.P. Blavatsky in Isis Unveiled:

They (the Rabbis of Palestime and the wise men) say that not all the rolls and manuscripts, reported in history to have been burned by Caesar, by the Christian mob, in 389, by the Arab General Amuru, perished as it is commonly believed; and the story they tell is the following.:

At the time of the contest for the throne, in 51 B.C., between Cleopatra and her brother Dionysius Ptolemy, the Bruckion, which contained over seven hundred thousand rolls all bound in wood and fire-proof parchment, was undergoing repairs and a great portion of the original manuscripts, considered among the most previous, and which were not duplicated, were stored away in the home of one of the librarians.

Several hours passed between the burning of the fleet, set on fire by Ceasar’s order, and the moment when the first buildings situated near the harbor caught fire in their turn; and *** the librarians, aided by several hundred slaves attached to the museum, succeeded in saving the most previous of the rolls.

Manly P. Hall writes that the books that were saved were actually buried in Egypt and in India, and until they are discovered, “the modern world must remain in ignorance concerning many great philosophical and mystical truths. The ancient world more clearly understood these missing links – the continuity of the pagan Mysteries in Christianity.” 

These pagan mysteries, Hall writes, are the heart of mysticism, which actually represents true Christianity. This makes sense; any civilization, you would assume, would seek out the knowledge and wisdom of those prior. It’s one of many paths to truth, or at least new discoveries that help one in their contemplation of truth.

Hall states:

There are persistent rumors that Jesus visited and studied in both Greece and India, and that a coin struck in His honor in India during the first century has been discovered. Early Christian records are known to exist in Tibet, and the Monks of a Buddhist monastery in Ceylon still preserve a record which indicates that Jesus sojourned with them and became conversant with their philosophy.

Although early christianity shows every evidence of Oriental influence, this is a subject the modern church declines to discuss. If it’s ever established beyond question that Jesus was an initiate of the pagan Greek or Asiatic Mysteries, the effect on the more conservative members of the Christian faith is likely to be cataclysmic.

Information like this, among other topics like life on other planets and sacred and magical (considered mythical by many) information about shamanism, magic, and sorcery, predate modern Christianity. Different sects of Christianity, after the ancient Romans created their own version, now condemn these teachings even though they were embedded within the original doctrines.

This is one of many reasons the aristocracy of ancient Rome ordered the library destroyed, because it would ruin the foundations of what they were creating — a new religion for man to follow, one whose doctrine contradicted the one prior. This type of religion was forced upon people, and those who did not follow were subject to death and exile. Anybody who questioned these new doctrines received harsh penalties throughout the ages, especially as time progressed and the expansion of civilization, from that point, moved forward.

“The early Christians used every means possible to conceal the pagan origin of their symbols, doctrines, and rituals. They either destroyed the sacred books of other peoples among whom they settled, or made them inaccessible to students of comparative philosophy, apparently believing that in this way they could stamp out all record of the pre-christian origin of their doctrines. In some cases the writings of various ancient authors were tampered with, passages of a compromising nature being removed or foreign material interpolated.” 

Conquering the World

Before the creation of a certain type of Christianity by ancient Rome, truth seemed to be more apparent, but darkness seemed to have permeated the world of light even prior. Atlantis is a great example, as Plato, among other ancient scholars, told us that the eventual demise of this civilization was brought forth by ego-driven desires that soon developed among them, when the Atlantean kings were “lured” from “the pathway of wisdom and virtue.”

“Filled with false ambition, the rulers of Atlantis determined to conquer the gods into his holy habitation and addressed them. Here Plato’s narrative comes to an abrupt end, for the Critias was never finished.”

“A technologically sophisticated but morally bankrupt evil empire – Atlantis – attempts world domination by force. The only thing standing it its way is a relatively small group of spiritually pure, morally principled and incorruptible people – the ancient Athenians. Overcoming overwhelming odds . . . the Athenians are able to defeat their far more powerful adversary simply through the force of their spirit. Sound familiar? Plato’s Atlantean dialogues are essentially an ancient greek version of ‘Star Wars.’ ” 

– Ken Feder, professor of archaeology, taken from his book Frauds, Myths and Mysteries: Science and Pseudoscience in Archaeology

The sacred teachings and artifacts in Atlantis were perverted and used for selfishness by some. These teachings made their way into Egypt, and eventually into ancient Greece, until the Roman Empire dominated the world, burned the library where many of these teachings were probably held, and disseminated their own version of knowledge and truth across the land.

Do some of these books lie within the libraries of the Vatican today? If much of the mythical stories we’ve heard and read about are real, they would indeed bring down the modern day understanding of religion and spirituality that’s been spread by the families of ancient Rome.

Are we looking at a cover-up of knowledge regarding “what is,” and have we been deceived?

The burning of Alexandria’s library was one tragic event involving the destruction of ancient knowledge, similar to the mass Native North American genocide that saw even more knowledge of humanity lost, stolen, and hidden.

This is why examining ancient sources of truth, or whatever is left of it, is always interesting, because it’s hard to receive something that’s been created and used as the backbone of deception — modern day religion.

4 Questions We Ask Each Other Unconsciously Every Day

Fri, 2017-12-08 06:29

The spiritual community often refers to the importance of having presence in our daily life, suggesting that by actively noting what we give our attention to, we can begin to choose whether it’s worth that attention or not. Now, it’s not too often that we’re told to pay attention to others, or that by doing so, we’re helping them to better their life. But let’s face it — most humans need connection and interaction to thrive.

We wrote about the importance of connection in “Harvard’s Epic 75 Year Study Reveals What Men Need to Live a Happy Life.” We discuss Harvard psychiatrist George Vaillant, who directed the study from 1972 to 2004 and who stresses that relationships are virtually the most important thing for a man in terms of finding joy in life. “Joy is connection… The more areas in your life you can make connection, the better,” he says.

Now, take a moment to recap the last interaction you had with someone. Think about the weightless pleasantries we offer each other. It’s likely the beginning of your last conversation started off with a How’s everything going? met with an Everything’s good. Neither parties in this interaction got any truth from one another, and in turn, welcomed no vulnerability. The result is both parties cut off their ability to be themselves and connect on a deep level.

In her Ted Talk, “The Power of Vulnerability,” Dr Brené Brown describes the importance of letting our guard down. She says, “They had connection . . . as a result of authenticity. They were willing to let go of who they thought they should be, in order to be who they were.” She then leaves her audience with four pieces of advice to practice daily:

  1. Let yourself be seen.
  2. Love with all your heart with no guarantee
  3. Practice Gratitude in joy; in moments of terror and fear, be grateful
  4. Believe that you are enough

These four points also remind me of a recent article I read by psychotherapist Katherine Schafler, who talks about Maya Angelou’s theory that each of us asks each other four questions unconsciously all the time. These questions aren’t exclusive to the people we love and see every day in our lives, but extend to any basic interaction we have with another being.

These questions we ask each other are silent, but when the answer to each of them is yes (and you’ll know), it translates to a ‘positive’ emotion — love, in essence. This then reinforces the feeling that, because this individual has acknowledged our presence, we are worthy of love. On the contrary, if these questions go unanswered, or even worse, are a no, we can feel disconnected. And if this comes from a romantic partner, problems quickly arise, usually in some form of drama where unconsciously we’re begging for attention.

These are the four questions:

  1. Do you see me?
  2. Do you care that I’m here?
  3. Am I enough for you, or do you need me to be better in some way?
  4. Can I tell that I’m special to you by the way that you look at me?

One perfect example that Katherine shares relates to our relationship with dogs. She argues the reason we love dogs so much is that they always answer these questions for us. I mean, I thought I loved dogs because they are unbearably adorable and are the epitome of unconditional love, but now I wonder, do these four questions translate into unconditional love?

Each of us crave the acknowledgment of being appreciated, and you can offer this to anyone in your life just by practicing the act of being present. Our society has us so checked out of reality, and with the rise of smart phones and social media, it’s no wonder the rates of teenage depression and suicide have skyrocketed since 2011. Teens are not being seen enough by one another and certainly aren’t seeing their family the way life intended.

Katherine’s article is aptly titled “How to Change Your Life in One Second Flat,” because the answer to our problem of lack of attention and appreciation is that simple: Be present in your everyday life. When you are speaking with someone look at them, really acknowledge their presence and be attentive to what they have to say. Speak authentically and considerably. Allow yourself to be seen and felt so that the person you’re with can do the same for you.

We cannot continue to live our daily lives mindlessly, allowing for mundane thoughts and problems to occupy our headspace and being. Beautiful moments happen every single day and often, by the people we love. Imagine being three years old and having your mother or father feeding you and engaging with someone on the phone or on the other side of the table and never making eye contact with you once. How would that shape a child? This whole mentality of presence with each other reinforces the theory that we are all deeply connected, that we truly need one another to not only survive on this planet, but to thrive.

Corey Feldman’s 1993 Audio Files Naming Sexual Predators Found By The Police

Thu, 2017-12-07 15:42

For those of you who don’t know, Corey Feldman has started a campaign to uncover high level pedophilia in Hollywood. He and several others from within the industry have started to speak up about the fact that not only do rape and sexual harassment occur,  but they happen to children more often than we’d like to think.

Take the Vatican, for example, which has paid close to 4 billion dollars in chid molestation lawsuit settlements.

Recently, another massive pedophile ring was discovered, with ties to Pope Benedict’s brother. 

The charges and accusations keep on coming. Recent news has shed light on some possible disturbing facts in the political sphere as well, brought to light in part by the PizzaGate scandal. The allegations involve Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager and longtime politician, Jon Podesta. An NBC News report even accused Clinton of covering up a pedophile ring to protect herself, and many others at the State Department.

The list literally goes on and on, and with the recent Harvey Weinstein revelations, it’s spread even more.  In fact, the LAPD recently announced investigations into 28 big name Hollywood moguls for multiple sex crimes, you can read more about that here. 

According to the LA Times“Never before has the department received so many sexual assault allegations involving high-profile figures at one time, including many complex cases that are years old with multiple alleged victims.”

The article goes on to to explain how the department has had to re-engineer its detective staff to deal with the influx, and has “established five teams of two detectives to exclusively investigate allegations of sexual misconduct in Hollywood.”

Now, claims that Feldman had given the names of these pedophiles in Hollywood to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office have been backed up by evidence, as the Sheriff’s office told mainstream media early this week in the form of an email:

“Following the recent inquiries into the Sheriff’s Office interview of Mr. Feldman in 1993, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office conducted an additional review for any stored items remaining from the Michael Jackson investigation. In a container which included the original reports from the investigation, the Sheriff’s Office located some detective working copies of audio recordings made during the investigation. A copy of Mr. Feldman’s interview was located. The recording is being turned over to the Los Angeles Police department. Due to the fact that this case involves the alleged sexual abuse of a child, we are unable to comment further and any documentation or evidence related to this case is exempt from release.”  (source)llywood, politics and more are involved in elite level pedophile rings, that trace all the way back to the Vatican.

It’s good to see more people take this type of thing seriously, as it’s a big probable. Based on the information we’ve received and the research we’ve done, we believe up to two thirds of the “1 percent” are involved in elite level pedophile rings.

The trouble here is asking why is this happening? Why do pedophiles do what they do? We obviously have tremendous remorse and understanding for victims, that’s a given, but is judgement and punishment really the answer here for those who have committed this type of crime? It is usually the ones who have been hurt the most who hurt others and become numb to their actions.

We’ve also written many about pedophilia within the political and religious realms, feel free to browse through our website for those, as it’s a topic that still receives little attention from the mainstream media. It’s bigger than most of us know.

 

 

Why I’m A Weekday Vegetarian (Video)

Thu, 2017-12-07 10:38

When it comes to diet, and more specifically the ideal diet, there is an overwhelming amount of information to sort through, most of it conflicting. We have paleo, ketogenic, raw, vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, and numerous other types of diets, and while each one claims to be the best, how can we ever really know? It seems each diet offers pros and cons, and so people often argue that you should eat what makes you feel good. But, in addition to health implications, do you ever consider environmental and ethical factors when choosing which diet is right for you?

People will argue until they are blue in the face that their diet is the best diet. We have vegetarians and vegans claiming theirs is the way to optimal health and is absolutely necessary if you want to help the environment. Unfortunately, this all or nothing type of attitude often turns people away from considering making a change at all. This is a huge shame, because making an effort to eat less meat and animal products can be hugely beneficial for the environment and would mean that millions of animals, if not more, would no longer have to suffer.

Is It All Or Nothing?

Absolutely not! As a former “vegan,” I used to feel this way and would advocate for veganism, trying to inspire and encourage others to adopt this type of lifestyle, and I still do, but what I eventually learned was that there are certain ways to do that. I am not a health expert or professional, so who am I to tell people what kind of diet they should be eating? Regardless of what I think, or how I feel about factory farming, animal welfare, and the environment, people still eat meat, and while I might not do so myself, I’m not here to judge those who do, but to help shed light on another perspective.

But, something that absolutely everyone can do, and should if they’d like to be a part of the solution rather than contributing to the problem — the destruction of our environment — is to simply cut back the amount of meat and animal products they are consuming on a regular basis. Maybe you’ve already heard about all of the benefits that come from eating less meat, for the animals, the environment, and potentially your health, but you just can’t seem to bring yourself to give it up. The good thing is that you don’t have to give it up completely; there are many options for you to consider and many initiatives out there to assist this process. If you are a meat and potatoes for dinner every night kind of person and you have no idea where to begin, there are some great tools and resources available online. Meatless Mondays, for example, is an initiative to go meatless for one day a week, which might seem insignificant, but when you multiply that by millions of people around the world, the impact is huge. 

This is a great place to start! By making a conscious decision to consume less meat and animal products, you are opening up doors to many new recipes, dining options, and plant-based substitutes. Even just switching over to plant-based nut milks will have a huge impact when multiplied by millions.

What About a Weekday Vegetarian?

By restricting your meat consumption to weekends only, you are reducing your meat consumption by about 70%. That is certainly a way to take things to the next level. The following video is a snippet from a TedX talk with Graham Hill. Here’s his take on the reducetarian movement and why he calls himself a “Weekday Vegetarian.”

Anonymous Christmas Message: “Warning, You Are Being Distracted”

Thu, 2017-12-07 10:27

Anonymous has released a couple of interesting videos over the past couple of days, and we’ve written about them here and here. Last year, they released a message prior to Christmas that is still very relevant this year.

It touches on a lot of important points that, judging by the views, obviously resonate with millions of people.

It starts off: “Life as you know it is a lie, society is a cage, your jobs are voluntary slavery. The television you watch is designed to keep you incapable of critical thought and the very freedom and democracy your leaders claim to stand for is nothing but an illusion.” 

This is a sentiment CE has expressed in many of our articles. What exactly has the human experience become? From a young age we are told to go to school, get a job, and fit into society like everybody else. As we grow older, we lose our childlike innocence, experience depression, and question the meaning of life. We get used to this type of routine, to the point where we don’t even question it and, in some cases, it becomes so ingrained into us that anybody who speaks up about creating something new is completely vilified by society.

While we are trying to put food on the table and keep a roof over our heads, the world is run by the “one percent.” This is precisely why it’s in the shape that it’s in.

Our planet is going through a massive change, on multiple levels, but most importantly, within. People are starting to question what is really going on here. In doing so, answers appear, and new information is constantly emerging that challenges the longheld belief systems of today. Perhaps the world isn’t everything we’ve been told it is, and perhaps the human race and all its individuals are capable and meant for something far greater than to keep repeating an experience that does not nourish the human soul.

In the process, we’ve allowed ourselves to be deceived, but ultimately, we are in control.

“The very freedom and democracy your leaders claim to stand for is nothing more than an illusion.” 

This is also another pivotal message here at CE. Does democracy even exist? It’s clear, more so than it has ever been, that governments do not really represent the people, but rather put on a show that makes it seem like they do. Voting doesn’t really make a difference, and never really has. The same agendas continue to be played out, and every single presidency since Truman has been heavily controlled by the Deep State Institutions that control America. 

Related CE Article: “Voting Is Rigged And Used To Pacify The Public,” Says Three Time US Presidential Candidate

“As difficult as it was for me, I’ve come to an inescapable and profoundly disturbing conclusion. I believe that an elite group of people and the corporations they run have gained control over not just our energy, food supply, education, and healthcare, but over virtually every aspect of our lives; and they do it by controlling the world of finance. Not by creating more value, but by actually controlling the source of money.”

– Foster Gamble

Below is a great clip from the Thrive documentary, one that we agree with, describing the so-called democracy we currently live in.

The Anonymous message goes on to emphasize that, “Under the guise of morality, your government sells weapons to the very countries they claim to protect you from, lining their pockets with the spoils of war, billions made by the death of millions.”

Another popular topic here at CE — the concept of False Flag terrorism, and the creation of the Islamic State along with its links to the Western Military Alliance. 9/11 was a prime example, where the global elite created the problem so they could then justify and propose the solution.

To read our articles on this topic, you can click here.

The message is a long message, but the important thing to note is that we are experiencing a shift in consciousness. The views shared in this video, and views like the ones shared on our website, are backed by evidence. We pride ourselves in providing credible sources for our claims, and our articles on the above topics are filled with them.

Working directly in the field, just to be able to witness how many people seek alternative news is unbelievable. A lot of information with solid sources made its way onto the web, information the global elite did not want people to see. This is all part of the mass awakening that’s currently happening; minds are opening to new possibilities about the nature of our reality and the truths about our human experience that have been swept under the rug.

A lot of this information can actual trigger a massive perceptual paradigm shift. To completely lose your view of the world and how it works is not something easy to go throw, but as a result of it, many changes within the individual are sparked, which is important because as we begin to change within, we start changing without.

The important thing to remember is that we can change the game any time, and that although some revelations may trigger fear, they don’t have to. The human experience is just that, an experience, and it’s our job to change the things that do not resonate with us, on an individual and collective level.

We are constantly pointing toward the global elite, and rightfully so, but again, it’s on US as a people to SEE so we don’t allow ourselves to be deceived.

We’ve been trained to care about our own individual lives and focus on us, rather than the whole. The more we start caring about all life on this planet and the benefit of all who reside on it, the quicker we can get through this shift, this re-brith, this apocalypse which, by the way, means revealing the truth.

Hopefully this gives you something to think about.

Dr. Joe Dispenza Shares the Quantum Mechanics Behind Spontaneous Remission

Thu, 2017-12-07 08:49

Get ready to have your mind blown! Dr. Joe Dispenza shares cutting edge research about epigenetics, quantum physics, neuroscience, and brain chemistry to teach us that we can turn the expression of our genes on and off in real time!

Dr. Joe Dispenza is an international educator and lecturer who researches and teaches everything from quantum mechanics and spontaneous remissions to biology, epigenetics, and spirituality.

He uses his vast amounts of knowledge to challenge traditional thinking in the Western world, and to bridge the gap between science and spirituality.

In this interview, Dr. Joe shares tremendous insights and tools to help you understand how spontaneous remission works, how we can truly change any aspect of ourselves, and how we can work with the quantum field to create what most of us would consider to be miracles.

Three Major Takeaways 

While this entire interview is full of one astonishing fact after another, all of which are backed by scientific research, here are a few highlights from our discussion.

  1. By lacing conscious intention (thought) with a powerful emotion, we can train ourselves to change the expression of our genes spontaneously.

What this means:

The patterns that we’ve been locked into our entire lives can be transformed in a matter of minutes. Dr. Joe has not only researched this, but conducted thousands of case studies where he’s seen everything from cancer tumours to body rashes disappear in a matter of minutes.

This challenges everything we know about what healing is and how it really works. Not only does Dr. Joe explain this in practical scientific terms, but he shares tools on how we can apply this to our own lives.

2. You will only accept, believe, and surrender to thoughts that are equal to your emotional state.

What this means:

When you’re using affirmations, they must be in alignment with how you feel. We spend a lot of time in conscious communities managing our thoughts, but we often fall short in noticing our feeling state.

Just like we want to dis-identify with our thoughts and be able to create change in the old stories we are running while on autopilot, we must be able to get off autopilot when it comes to our feeling state, too.

At the end of the day, if your emotional body doesn’t resonate with the thought or affirmation you’re trying to bring into your reality, it will not connect to the quantum field to facilitate change.

Through Dr. Joe’s research studies, he demonstrates that we must combine both thought and emotion when connecting to the quantum field to facilitate major transformation.

3. We all have superhuman potential that is waiting to be tapped into.

In Dr. Joe’s new book, Supernatural, he describes how we can connect to our superhuman selves. After conducting case studies on individuals who appear to have “supernatural” powers, he guides us through practical tools on how to gain access to our own special powers.

He teaches how to connect to states of being that allow us to transcend the paradigm of normality and to truly tune into our greatness. Dr. Joe points things out like, “out of the 70 thousand thoughts we think daily, roughly 90% of them are repeated from the previous day.” He then teaches us how to change our outdated patterns at their root to be masters of our destiny.

Why You Need to Watch This Interview

Dr. Joe eloquently explains terms and ideas we once thought to be science-fiction. He grounds incredible new concepts into tangible reality, and shares just how much power we have over our own lives when we shift off autopilot.

From how to communicate with the quantum field and transcend anxiety to spontaneous remissions, Dr. Joe communicates with us the importance of opening our heart to facilitate real healing and lasting change. This interview really challenges old paradigms and allows us to open our minds to the miracles that are truly possible.

 

Bruce Lee Wisdom: How To Think Like Nobody Else

Wed, 2017-12-06 15:48

In self help you often hear that if you are doing what everyone else is doing, you will likely end up doing what everyone else is doing, too  — and probably feeling like them as well.

When I was just starting college this was my greatest fear. Not so much ‘ending up’ like everyone else per se, but rather the idea that I was on a path that would lead to doing something I just had to accept — finishing college, getting a job, and then doing the whole house and family thing. Let me be clear, there is nothing inherently wrong with any of this, and I’d love to have a family, but something didn’t feel right inside about the fact that my life would involve doing the same thing day in and day out. I’d be ‘living the dream,’ so to speak, but it wasn’t really my dream.

I realized promotion of ‘the dream’ was a control technique to sell the general public into doing what would benefit the rich. It was convincing everyone to be cogs in the machine that would keep the game running for those who ran everything at the top. Of course, this idea seems crazy, because that’s the other part of the sale, that we somehow just ended up here like this. There couldn’t possibly be anyone calling the shots up top, it’s just human greed, ego, and power that got us here. Right?

I’m glad I learned that wasn’t the truth early on.

I began to realize that I had to wake up from the illusion, and truthfully, it’s what we’re all going through. In that, beginning to think unlike the masses is what got me from a state of a bleak life outlook to one of pure potential, and soon enough I was doing what I loved for a living. Nothing could stop me.

Me speaking at Conscious Media Festival in 2017.

Bruce Lee was someone who lived by many of the same ideas and understandings I was coming to through my journey of leaving behind the old ways, patterns, habits, ways of thinking, and consciousness. Here are a few that are important for us to consider in today’s world.

I truly believe that if we want to live the life we desire deep down in our heart and soul, we have to clear out the B.S. in our heads, get aligned with our hearts, and begin to take action from there. When we chase dreams from the mind, we’re often chasing an illusion, as we’re not clear on what we truly want.

1. Build True Intellectual Confidence

One of the biggest things I feel we struggle with in today’s age is wanting everything immediately — including mastery. No matter who tries to sell you on the idea that you can achieve mastery overnight, they are lying to you. Harsh I know, but true!

Bruce Lee believed that his incredible physical abilities began in his mind. It started with such a strong confidence in having a sharp mind about what he was doing that it allowed him to do unbelievable things with his body.

I view this as him not denying the aspects of his whole self that help someone master something. We are made up of mind, body, and spirit, and when all used in unison, we begin to reach our potential. When we deny one or the other or don’t exercise it, we remain limited. In a letter Bruce wrote to himself while in his 20s, he spoke about his belief in a “creative and spiritual force” within himself that guides everything he does. This of course is not just in Bruce, but in all of us.

For myself and my journey, I always found myself visualizing, seeing, and understanding how something was done from a mind level. I learned all I could about things I wanted to master and I matched that mental learning with a spiritual alignment or desire to do it as well as the physical practice of bringing it to the body. When all three are working together, you begin down the path of mastery.

With this, you can begin to innovate on ideas, create new directions, and lock in your own unique contribution to the world. This is precisely what Bruce Lee did.

We sometimes want to simply do what someone taught us, or do what’s quick and easy and then expect to become a master. But it truly takes practice to lock down the following:

1. A mental understanding and mastery of what you want to do or are doing

2. Connection to a deeper spiritual push you have to do something, coming from within you!

3. Mastering the physical side or the action side of what you want to do

Each ingredient is important. I teach how to create a connection between your mind, body, and soul in our Explorer Lounge Mastery Program.

2. Know That No Dogma Contains All Answers

Now when we think of how to view our life, or our learning of something, it’s important to look around. We often can get caught up in wanting to identify with something simply because of our culture, gender, background, or anything else we choose to identify with. But this will only create limitations, as these aren’t who we are.

Bruce Lee was always aware of this fact. He saw that you will have limitations if you’re sticking to one culture or tradition. This is why he made it his goal to mix and match different ideas before coming to a limited conclusion.

Although Bruce Lee was heavily influenced by Chinese philosophy, he was also very fond of people like Alan Watts, who also brought a lot of Eastern values and ideas to the West. Humanity is a mixture of many people, ideas, and consciousnesses, and when we have the opportunity to see what everyone has contributed to where we are right now, and then expand upon that, it’s a beautiful thing.

We are all potential teachers for one another, and while our egos can sometimes get caught in wanting to OWN an idea or philosophy, this is often simply the ego wanting to hold on and define us. Instead, realize that we truly own nothing. Our ideas are likely mixtures of contributions many people have brought to the world and collective consciousness for us and our ideas are a gift and contribution as well. As we expand upon and add to this collective consciousness of ideas, we evolve humanity as a whole.

When we get stuck in one set of ideas or culture and simply live out what we are told or believe from that one place, there is no evolution. There is no expansion, and often times we end up mindlessly following something that was never meant to stay stagnant. We, in essence, get in our own way of progress and mastery.

The solution here is to expose yourself to new ideas, fresh theories, and others’ experiences. Learn from the incredible breadth of perspectives and values humanity is always adding to the collective consciousness and be a leader in evolving our ideas at all times. It’s in our very nature to live this way, we simply block it.

Moving beyond old patterns and ideas and connection with our hearts is a key step accessing infinite knowledge. This is also taught in our Explorer Lounge Mastery Program.

3. Choose Self-Expression Over Imitation

As mentioned above, it can sometimes feel like everything has been done out there, and that no matter what we do we are copying or imitating in some way. Bruce Lee believed that improvement and development of oneself weren’t acts of imitation or copying someone else’s mastery, but were about observing and then innovating in your own personal way.

This is why I believe, and have found, that it is so important to get in touch with YOU. I was astonished 10 years ago when I learned how little I knew my true self. I was always a fairly self-aware individual, but to what extent? We often think we know everything or are at a certain level, until we realize how much deeper we can truly go.

I began down a journey of exploring who I truly was and what I truly wanted in my life. Not from my mind, but from my heart. I worked to understand my soul’s desires and differentiate between what my mind was chasing and what my heart and soul were here to do. From this space within myself, I gather my personal and unique innovation I can apply or bring to anything I do. Because I know it deeply and truly from within myself as opposed to doing what I see others do.

Perhaps it begins with doing what others do, but that personal touch comes from this knowing of ourselves. Reflect on yourself — do you see yourself doing your own unique thing? Or are you often striving to do what others are doing? Following their dreams? There is no right or wrong here. It’s simply about observing.

I always like to say, have fun with personal exploration and evolution. We can get so stressed about whether or not we are doing something right or wrong and begin to compare ourselves to others, and the next thing you know, we drive ourselves crazy. You are already a perfect and unconditionally loved being… truthfully. Recognition of the love that we are inside already is one of the hardest things to do, but also the most powerful for avoiding negative self talk and getting stuck.

Inside our Explorer Lounge you can also take our 5 Days of You Challenge, which sets out a five day journey to begin discovering more about YOU and where you want to go. A perfect pre-class for our Explorer Lounge Mastery Program.

Another Massive Pedophile Ring Uncovered, With Clear Ties To Pope Benedict’s Brother

Sat, 2017-11-18 17:08

Pedophilia is a big problem these days, and has been for a while. For decades, and more recently with the Harvey Weinstein case, Corey Feldman’s revelations and more, people in positions of great power have been implicated in this type of activity, but it doesn’t stop in Hollywood. Pedophilia and child trafficking has plagued the world of politics as well as the military industrial complex for a long time. The recent Pizzagate scandal involving long time high ranking politician Jon Podesta forced many people to look into it more. Jeffrey Epstein is another classic example, or the fact that a recent NBC news report claimed that Hillary Clinton, while acting as secretary of state, shut down an investigation into an elite pedophile ring in State Department ranks in order to avoid scandal and protect the careers of high ranking officials and an ambassador. James Grazioplene, a high ranking retired army general who worked in the Pentagon and as the Vice President of DynCorp, is currently facing six rape charges of underaged persons. As far back as 2005, U.S. congresswoman Cynthia Mckinney grilled Donald Rumself on private military contractor’s (DynCorp) child trafficking business of selling women and children.

The list literally goes on and on, from Hollywood, to politics and within the military industrial complex, all the way up to the hub which seems to be in charge of it all, the Vatican.

Many people have known about the problems of pedophilia, child abuse and violence that has plagued the vatican for a long time, but this information started to become more mainstream only a few years ago, and it coincided with Pope Benedict’s resignation, something that hasn’t happened for more than 600 years.

The amount of recent pedophilia cases is enough to make you cringe, which, apart from the examples mentioned above, include  the FBI/Europol case, in which 350 pedophiles were busted soon after the arrest of Playpen creator, Stephen Chase; the prominent Vatican official Cardinal George Pell, who was found to be connected to child pornography and pedophilia; and the 70,000-member pedophilia ring uncovered in Norway.

Pell is a top Vatican official, and has been an advisor to Pope Benedict, as well as Pope Francis. He’s one of the Vatican’s most powerful officials, and is currently facing an Australian court, again, on charges of historic sexual assault. Last June he was charged by detectives from Victoria Police, and is currently fighting multiple allegations of sexual abuse, despite the fact that the details of the charges have not been made public.

Below is a picture of Pell with pope Benedict.

In even more recent news, a massive amount of decades of sexual abuse was reported in a choir that was led by the retired pope Benedict’s brother. It’s interesting that all of these revelations and accusations of violence, child abuse and pedophilia coincided with the time of the pope’s resignation, when the people closest to him were being investigated and looked into, and at a time where it was becoming clear that child abuse within the Vatican is just a mere ‘conspiracy theory.’ Perhaps the most recent, is the case of approximately 600 members of a Catholic boys’ Domspatzen choir in Regensburg, Germany, where physical and sexual abuse ruled from 1945 to 1992. Georg Ratzinger, former Pope Benedict’s brother, was the choir’s head from 1964 to 1994. In 2015, a lawyer by the name of Ulrich Weber was tasked with filing a report on what happened, and uncovered the startling fact that during the 30 years that the choir was run by Benedict XVI’s elder brother, approximately 600 boys with a “high degree of plausibility” were victims of sexual and physical abuse, or both. The report identified 500 cases of physical abuse, and 67 cases of sexual abuse committed by a total of 49 people in a position of power. CBC News reports: “At the choir’s preschool, “violence, fear and helplessness dominated” and “violence was an everyday method,” it said. “The whole system of education was oriented toward top musical achievements and the choir’s success, “the report said.” Alongside individual motives, institutional motives – namely, breaking the will of the children with the aim of maximum discipline and dedication – formed the basis for violence.” (source) The report implicated the pope’s brother for “looking away” and “failing to intervene.” It’s not far fetched to believe that he was actually involved, and perhaps this mounting pressure was the reason for Benedict’s early retirement, and shifted attention away from them and onto Pope Francis. Ratzinger did not admit anything, except for slapping pupils after he took over the choir, and that these types of punishments and discipline were commonplace in Germany at the time. “He also said he was aware of allegations of physical abuse at the elementary school and did nothing about it, but he was not aware of sexual abuse.” Most people reading this who have investigated elite level child abuse will find it hard to believe that Ratzinger was not heavily involved. Child abuse, murder, organ harvesting and more are a few of many rumours that plague the vatican, and it’s almost, literally, unbelievable to fathom that these types of things may actually be going on, and yet a large portion of the world looks to, not only them, but the entire political establishment to represent and guide them. The vatican has announced plans to offer victims ‘compensation’ between 5,000 and 20,000 euros each by the end of this year, but there is no way to compensate for what’s been done, and it’s erie to think about how much as gone unreported, and the gruesome, horrifying details that may be involved. Where does all of this stem from? Most likely, in my opinion, from the fact that these “leaders” went through the same thing as children, and believe it to be perfectly normal.

Earth’s Transition Into The Age of Aquarius – According To Carl Jung & A 33rd Degree Free Mason

Sat, 2017-11-18 12:21

Astrology is an ancient art and science dating back thousands of years. It appears in many cultures, but as with most ancient wisdom, much of it was and has been concealed and forbidden from public viewing. Secret societies, both those whose hearts are grounded in the good will for all of humanity, and those driven by greed and personal gain, have also used this type of ancient knowledge. From Atlantis to ancient Sumer, Vedic astrology to ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt, many great minds throughout the ages have practiced astrology, and for good reason. Despite its many skeptics, astrology has much to offer.

It’s also import to mention here that many of our founding fathers of modern science, especially in the fields of mathematics and physics/quantum physics, were all spiritual mystics.

“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.”- Nikola Tesla

A new age, astrologically speaking, for man began at the dawn of Christianity. Prior to this, we had the secret societies, concepts like the Philosopher’s Stone, and other ‘magical’ concepts, including the use of magic and sorcery. With the advent of Christianity, the concept of God took their place, yet more recently, concepts that were used and practiced prior to the beginning of modern day religion have been emerging once more, which is interesting because we are at the end of an age, and transitioning into a new one. There is discrepancy among experts where exactly we are, but most seem to agree that we are in a very important transition period.

In Western astrology, we are transitioning from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius. In ancient Vedic astrology, we are at the beginning of the end of a 300 cycle (currently living in the transition period at the end of the Kaliyuga Age).

The Vedic doctrine also tells us what Western astrology philosophies do, and correlates with the cycles described by ancient Native American wisdom as well.

They tell us that we are living in an age of Darkness, also described in The Mahabharata, a time when mental capabilities reach their lowest point and moral virtue is stripped from the Earth. As independent researcher Bibhu Dev Misra writes, when the “World Soul” is full of blackness and corruption, and only a small fraction of virtue remains, it “slowly dwindles to zero at the end of the Kali Yuga. Men turn to wickedness; disease, lethargy, anger, natural calamities, anguish and fear of scarcity dominate. Penance, sacrifices and religious observances fall into disuse. All creatures degenerate. Change passes over all things, without exception.” 

These descriptions accurately reflect our society’s progression. As we’ve moved through modern history, this past age — which has lasted approximately 2,100 years — is coming to an end, a conclusion marked by a time when global tensions have never been so high. During this age, humanity has indeed experienced the most darkness, and it seems that the more ancient a civilization, the more spiritually (and technologically) advanced they might have been — also interesting because after this age ends, we will be cycling back to the beginning, an age that hasn’t been seen since the time of great knowledge and understanding of the spiritual sciences, mysticism, consciousness, and non-materialism in general.

This all seems to be part of the massive shift in collective consciousness that is going on today.

Carl Jung’s Explanation (From The Video Below)

Dr. Young writes:

“As we know from Ancient Egyptian History, these events are symptoms of psychic changes that always appear at the end of one platonic month, and at the beginning of another. They are, it seems, changes in the constellation of psychic dominance, of the archetypes or gods, as they used to be called, which bring about or accompany long lasting transformations of the collective psyche.  This transformation started within the historical tradition and left traces behind it. First, in the transition from the age of Torus to that of Aries, and then from Aries to Pisces, whose beginning coincides with the rise of Christianity (mentioned above).  We are now nearing the great change, which may be expected, when the spring point, enters Aquarius.” 

Interest quote above, it’s taken from his book, Flying Saucers: A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the SkiesIt’s hard to find a non translated version that was written by Jung in 1958, that’s why the recording below, from manly P. Hall, who had a relationship with Jung, as being recognized as two of the greatest minds of their time – they were also into each others work, is so important.

Hall has been recognized as one of the world’s leading scholars in the fields of religion, mythology, mysticism, and the occult. Many great minds have been attracted to his work, including the late Carl Jung, who, when writing his Psychology and Alchemy, borrowed material from Hall’s private collection.

One of his most recognized books is a great resource of information, The Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy. 

Jung, contrary to popular belief, was a heavy researcher into the topic of UFOs, during the time he published his book he also accused the Air Force for covering up information about the subject.

Hall explains Jung’s quote above:

“Jung is telling us, that the Platonic year is a problem in timing, and that what we call the processional motion of the equinoxes, results in the vernal equinox changing about every 2100 years, and that these changes correspond to the months of the great platonic year, which consists of something over 25,000 years. He is telling us therefore that these changes arising in nature, in cosmos, in space, are due to certain gradual transformations of archetypes, and that these archetypes mean, that in nature this clock is active, and that this clock is continuously moving, passing from one cyclic division to another, he could undoubtedly gather, a powerful body of information to prove that at each of these vital periods, these periods in which the general dominant of the world changes, there has been a mark, an important social psychological change in the life of individuals.”

He (Hall) then goes on to say:

“The life of the individual is in relationship to the life of the collective, that this phenomenon, of the flying saucers, should arise as the vernal equinox moves toward the aquarian point, and that  this consequently implies, as it did to the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans, and also to many Asiatic peoples, a major motion of world consciousness, world pressure, and that this motion is from a water sign, to an air sign…And that therefore, the atmospheric mystery, the mystery of air, and that which is concealed within air, must become increasingly psychologically dominant for a period of more than 2000 years to come.”

You can listen to the Full audio below. Hall goes into many different topics, and provides his own ideas about the phenomenon.

Human Consciousness & Space

Scientific literature is clear on the fact that several physiological rhythms and global collective behaviours are not only synchronized with solar and geomagnetic activity, but also that disruptions in these fields can create adverse effects on human health and behaviour. You can read more about that here in an article that’s sourced with the science behind it. The point is, at a biological level we know that all life on Earth is linked in some way with Solar, Lunar, and possibly other cycles as well.

There is also a great deal of evidence that human consciousness, which plays such a big role in quantum physics, and other areas of non material science, is directly connected to astrology in very peculiar ways.

“It was not possible to formulate the laws of quantum mechanics in a fully consistent way without reference to consciousness.” – Max Planck

For example, in Collective Evolution III: The Shift,  we documented how solar flares not only have the ability to produce a beautiful light show for spectators on earth, but also coincide with major world events and have a powerful effect on human consciousness.

Major solar activity has been directly correlated with major events throughout human history, it’s quite interesting, and there is no doubt that the ancients saw these correlations, and were able to perhaps easily predict times in human history where a lot is happening.

The takeaway with the recent increase in interest and mass validity of the UFO subject, is coinciding, as are with many other things (not just UFOs), a massive shift in human consciousness.

8 Tips To Help You Move Past Anxiety Caused By Social Media

Sat, 2017-11-18 11:21

In this day and age, we are more connected than ever. Our friends and family members can all be contacted at the click of a button, and if we haven’t heard from someone in awhile, a quick scroll through their timeline is all it seems to take to get caught up with their lives. So why, then, despite being “more connected that ever,” do we feel so lonely? And why is social anxiety on the rise?

Despite being so connected virtually, in reality, social media serves as a clever way for us to hide. It allows us to remain physically hidden and live vicariously through the identities we create for ourselves on our Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter accounts. Here, we can highlight the parts of our lives we feel are worth showing off — which can appear quite intimidating to some — and neglect the rest. We then spend hours looking at the perfect lives of our peers and wondering why ours aren’t as exciting, joyful, or fun. But this is a trap. We aren’t seeing people’s true lives any more than they are seeing ours.

The more we deny our emotions and act as though everything is “perfect” (even though it’s not), the more we are bottling things up on the inside. These emotions have to come out at some point, and we can’t run away from them forever. Unfortunately this release often comes out as a form of social anxiety. Because so many of our connections online can be edited, revised, and delayed, we get used to this luxury to the point where we fear what might come out when we are face to face with other humans that we can’t just take back or delete like an embarrassing photo.

What Are We Afraid Of?

Social anxiety disorder, or social phobia, is essentially an intense fear of the possibility of embarrassing or humiliating ourselves in social situations. This is not the same as just being shy; this disorder can become so intense that a person does not want to leave their home or participate in any type of social gathering because the fear of doing something they deem “wrong” is too powerful. Have you ever felt this way? Even if we don’t have this diagnosis, I’m sure many of us, myself included, can relate to these feelings at times. Consider the last time you were left alone in a public space and were unsure what to do. Did you reach for your phone to distract yourself or appear busy? It is so easy to hide behind social media, in many different ways. Instead of sitting with the discomfort, observing it, and making a plan to overcome it, we just let our attention be sucked into our phones instead.

I remember when I was a kid, while doing errands with my mom, how often she would strike up a conversation with strangers while in the bank or at the store, or how often others would do so with her. It seemed so easy. Yet nowadays, I notice that whenever someone is left alone somewhere, standing in line or in an elevator, they rarely chat with anyone around them because everyone is just glued to their phones instead. Compare the stories of how our parents met compared to relationships that are beginning in this decade; we rely on social media just to meet people. How can you tell if you have a spark with someone through a picture?

So, Is It Too Late?

In many ways, our society could benefit from going back to the way things used to be,  before technology and industry ran our lives — planting our own vegetables, playing outside, actually talking to others face to face, and working together as a community. Social media further divides us, and if we rely on it solely for human interaction and connection, then we are really no different from robots. We cannot deny the part of our being that craves real, physical human connection, and one thing is for sure: If we do, it will make it much more difficult to create any real change in the world. We need to come together.

An important question to ask yourself is, what would you do if the internet and all electricity went down? Do you have people in your life with whom you are close enough that you could reach out to them for help, comfort, or companionship?

What Can We Do?

Having awareness is the first step to creating any kind of change. Being aware of our addiction to social media means that we can implement the necessary steps to break it. Here are some practical steps you can take to take hold of this addiction before it gets ahold of you!

  1. Observe any times when you feel uncomfortable or nervous.
  2. Try not to reach for your phone, but instead sit with this feeling.
  3. Accept how you’re feeling. Don’t judge yourself or beat yourself up about it.
  4. If this is hard for you, try leaving your phone i n the car or in your jacket.
  5. Make eye contact with people. This is a great way to tell if someone new is interested in initiating a conversation.
  6. Make an effort to speak up. It can be tricky at first, but it gets easier over time. I find it helps a lot if I have a close friend with me, almost as if it’s a form of safety and security.
  7. Don’t forget, feeling uncomfortable in social settings is very common for many people; you never know how that person you end up talking to might be feeling and how happy it could make them to have someone like you come and talk to them.
  8. If you find this is all too difficult for you and you just can’t handle it, you may want to seek out assistance from a professional.

Another thing you can do to make your connections more real and meaningful could be calling a close friend or family member on their birthday rather than posting on their timeline. I promise, they will appreciate the thought and effort! You can also put yourself in social situations where you have to connect with others; the more you do it, the easier it will become. Additionally, limit your time scrolling through and posting on social media, and when you do use social media, consider posting more honest content to get a real conversation started. I don’t mean passively aggressively talking smack about your ex-boyfriend, I mean opening up about how you feel, or what you’ve been going through (if and only if you feel like sharing publicly). While not a necessary step to breaking social anxiety, if you do feel you need to express yourself, social media can be a great tool to use.

5 Books That Have Had A Tremendous Impact On Me & Why You Should Read Them Too

Sat, 2017-11-18 10:56

Aside from during my teenage years, when the world of video games consumed the vast majority of my spare time, I’ve always been an avid reader. And while I’ve delved into many different genres, the one that I’ve explored most extensively by far, especially since my mid-twenties, is personal development.

Whether it be a classic like Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, or a newer addition to the genre such as Neil Pasricha’s The Happiness Equation, I’ve read countless books on this topic and am incredibly grateful for what each has taught me or helped me to overcome. 

Knowing that not all of us have the time to read the seemingly endless number of personal development books filling the shelves of your local library, I’ve decided to put together a list of the five that have impacted me the most.

While I cannot guarantee they will affect you equally as much, I do hope they will, and feel confident that at least you won’t regret taking the time to read them. 

Here are the five most impactful personal development books I’ve read thus far, as well as why I believe you too should read them, in both video and written form:

1. Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives

Way of the Peaceful Warrior is an autobiographical novel written by Dan Millman that blends fact with fiction to offer up some quite profound food for thought. The book tells the story of a world-champion gymnast (Dan) who forms an unexpected relationship with a service station mechanic (Socrates) who ultimately becomes his mentor.

How It Impacted Me

This book taught me the power of being truly present in and attentive to every moment in life. For me, the character of Socrates represents what I’ve come to know as my intuition, and reminded me of how my thoughts and belief systems (rather than external factors) are my greatest limitation.

Reasons to Read It

  • To better understand and strengthen your connection to your intuition
  • To help with a wandering mind that loves to always either dwell on the past or project into the future
2. Awaken the Giant Within: How to Take Immediate Control of Your Mental, Emotional, Physical and Financial Destiny!

Awaken the Giant Within is a direct self-help book that boldly challenges your values, goals, and overall approach to life. Written by world-renowned life and business coach Tony Robbins, it combines storytelling with exercises to encourage the reader to take action on changing their life as they read the book.

How It Impacted Me

Choosing to actively complete each of the suggested exercises as I came across them meant that the book had an immediate impact on virtually every facet of my life. It helped me to identify conflicting values, better lay out my goals, and appreciate everything that has made me into who I am today. As an extrovert myself, Tony’s style of writing and motivational speaking has always resonated with me, but I feel this book in particular can be just as effective for even the most introverted among us.

Reasons to Read It

  • To become a better goal setter (of goals you’ll actually take action on)
  • To better understand what is internally holding you back from attaining the life you desire
3. The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

While the title may sound a little to “woo-woo” for some, The Power of Now is the first book ever written by the infamous spiritual teacher and public speaker Eckhart Tolle. It is intended to be a guide to help the reader recognize the importance of staying in the present moment rather than being consumed by past or future thoughts.

How It Impacted Me

I first absorbed the teachings of this book by listening to a recording while renovating my mother’s house several years ago. I wasn’t particularly happy to be doing the renovations at the time, but I was soon amazed by how the book shifted my perspective on the work (and ultimately so much of what I do). It helped me realize just how many of my thoughts are charged by things that truly need have no bearing on my current experience.

Reasons to Read It

  • To become better at quieting your overthinking mind on demand
  • To develop a greater appreciation for everything that happens in life and to learn from it more effectively
4. How to Win Friends & Influence People

How to Win Friends & Influence People is one of the most-read books of all time, with over 30 million copies sold since its publication in 1936. Despite being very dated in many of its references, the core subject matter remains remarkably applicable to modern life. Proof of this lies in its 2011 ranking by Time Magazine as #19 of the most influential 100 books of all time. 

How It Impacted Me

As the name suggests, this book significantly improved my communication and relationship skills. It showed me unhealthy speaking habits I had made a part of my regular life and gave me effective ways to replace them (that don’t involve manipulation).

Reasons to Read It

  • To identify the weaknesses within your communication skills that you’re likely unaware of
  • To equip yourself with an easy-to-use set of tools for more effective formal and informal communication
5. Conversations with God: An Uncommon Dialogue

Conversations with God is a three-part book series comprised of a back and forth conversation between the author of the book and a voice he refers to as God. Despite sounding like a religious text, the book does not connect to any particular faith and instead is better classified as spiritual.

How It Impacted Me

What particularly impressed me about this book is just how many things I had often wondered about were reflected in the conversation. Nearly all of the answers resonated with me, and gave me such a new and profound perspective on life that I actually read it several times in a row, taking notes on my second and third pass.

Reasons to Read It

  • To answer many of the questions you hold the solution to internally but have a difficult time accessing
  • To develop your critical thinking skills by identifying what does and doesn’t ring true for you personally

Do you enjoy uplifting self-help content like this? SIGN UP to be a part of my mission to make personal development more interesting for both of us! As a thank you gift for doing so, I’ll personally send 3 tools to help you conquer anxiety to your inbox within 48 hours.

Images From Roswell? An Alien Craft With Egyptian Hieroglyphs, Greek Letters & Handprints To Steer

Sat, 2017-11-18 00:00

It’s great to see the topic of UFOs and extraterrestrials amass more credibility as the years pass. It receives little attention from the mainstream, at least beyond ridicule, so this may come as a surprise to some, but there are hundreds of high ranking people who have come forward to tell the world that UFOs are not only real, but also that some of them are in fact extraterrestrial in origin.

There are too many examples to choose from, such as a former Chief of Defence and Chairman of the NATO Military Committee telling us that “we are being visited, and have been visited by people from outer space.” More recently, Louis Elizondo, a former National Counterintelligence Executive and Director of National Intelligence, became the Director of Global Security and Special Programs for Tom Delonge’s recently launched To The Stars academy, just one week out of retirement.

Other high ranking executives from the intelligence and aerospace community have also joined this program, including Steve Justice, the recent director for Advanced Systems Development at Lockheed Skunk Works. They aim to let the world know that we are not alone, and that there are highly advanced technological objects in our atmosphere performing maneuvers that defy our laws of physics.

Here is a recent video of them speaking during a live broadcast, where Elizondo mentions that through is work, he learned “the phenomenon is indeed real” and it deals with a physics we have yet to understand, and also that there are technologies within the Black Budget world that could benefit humanity.

“There is another way, whether it’s wormholes or warping space, there’s got to be a way to generate energy so that you can pull it out of the vacuum, and the fact that they’re here shows us that they found a way.” 

–  Dr. Jack Kasher, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus of Physics at the University of Nebraska (source)

Roswell

“Yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered. . . . We are not alone in the universe, they have been coming here for a long time. . . . I happen to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet, and the UFO phenomenon is real.”

– Doctor Edgar Mitchell, 6th man to walk on the moon (source)(source)(source)

For someone who hasn’t spent time researching this subject, it might be hard to believe that an actual extraterrestrial craft crash landed on planet Earth. But when you take into account the above statements, especially the most recent coming from Tom Delonge’s team, along with hundreds of thousands of documents that show these objects are commonly tracked on radar, and military jets are constantly scrambled to check them out, it becomes far more plausible.

The Roswell incident is one of dozens, if not hundreds of downed extraterrestrial craft resulting from human aggression. This is better explained by Paul Hellyer, Canada’s former Minister of National Defence: “Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about where we were headed and offered to help. But instead, we, or at least some of us, interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after.”

Elizondo shares a similar story, stating that one of his jobs was to track and observe these objects, as he was head of the program which investigates “aeriel threats.”

To The Stars will be working directly with the U.S. government to release authentic videos and images of real UFOs to the public, but there are already many credible videos and photos of these objects, and it’s a shame they must come from a government authority in order for people to deem them credible. This is a problem within itself, as our government has deceived us on so many topics, on so many levels, making it extremely difficult to trust their intentions on any subject, be it UFOs or terrorism. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see where this initiative goes.

Again, threat is the main word here. It’s impossible to say whether these objects represent a genuine threat to humanity or not, but to assume they do without learning more is unwise.

There is evidence proving the existence of this kind of exotic technology that dates back to before the Second World War. A classic example would be the CIA keeping tabs on developments in Germany, as explained by this document, which looked into “a German newspaper” that “recently published an interview with George Klein, famous engineer and aircraft expert, describing the experimental construction of ‘flying saucers’ carried out by him from 1941 to 1945.” 

Here is an authentic image/story of a large UFO hovering over L.A., which was witnessed by 1 million people. Dubbed the “Battle of Los Angeles,” it was an event that showed us how the U.S. military was learning to lie about UFOs five years prior to the Roswell Incident, which occurred in 1947.

So, as you can see, there is a lot to this.

The Actual Craft

One of the best individuals to learn about the Roswell incident would be Stanton Friedman, a retired nuclear physicist and longtime UFO researcher. He’s authored many books, one of them being Crash at Corona: The Definitive Study of the Roswell Incident with Exclusive Testimony on a Second New Mexico Crash Site. 

This book explores Egyptian Hieroglyphics and characters from the Greek alphabet which are said, according to researchers like Friedman, to have adorned the crashed spacecraft’s exterior.

Longtime U.S. army veteran Colonel Philip James Corso also published a book titled The Day After Roswell, where he details the same information and other aspects about the bodies, and extraterrestrial technology that was recovered.

According to the above sources and some of the folklore, the craft featured handprints like those in the picture you see below. These pictures are the real deal, according to Tom Delonge in a recent podcast he did with Joe Rogan, but they could very well be fake, there is really no way to verify them.

When it came time to back-engineer the craft, no engine was discovered, but pilots placed their humanoid hands in these slots and guided the craft using their mind — a type of telepathic technology that we ourselves have yet to discover.

Below is another supposed piece of the craft; Delonge and researchers call it “Eleptheria,” which translated to freedom.

 

Strange Markings on Craft Are Nothing New

While we’re on the subject, here’s another interesting story from Daniel Sheehan, a Harvard trained Constitutional Litigation and Appellate Attorney. Over the past forty four years, he has worked as a Federal Civil Rights Attorney, author, public speaker, and educator.

Dan’s most well-known case at the Cahill-Gordon Law Firm was the landmark First Amendment case New York Times, Co. v. U.S. (the “Pentagon Papers Case”), in which The New York Times — and The Washington Post — won the right to publish a classified Pentagon study revealing the secret history of the Vietnam War. Dan served as Co-Counsel. He also served as Special Counsel before the United States District Court for the District of Columbia in the Watergate Burglary Case.

New Moon In Scorpio: Deep Feelings And Making Adjustments

Fri, 2017-11-17 20:07

There will be a New Moon in Scorpio on November 18 at 11:42am Universal Time. This marks a new wave of energy influencing the upcoming lunar month, yet the astrological configurations at this time will be the strongest over the following two weeks leading up to the Full Moon on December 3.

We have been in Scorpio season since October 23. Although we will be going into Sagittarius season on November 21, Scorpio themes will still be active throughout this Lunar month due to this New Moon and other planets travelling through this sign. As mentioned in previous articles, Jupiter will be travelling through this sign for a year, which can help bring out more of its positive aspects.

Scorpio’s energies are deep, powerful, emotional, transformative, intense, sexual, investigative, suspicious, mysterious, hidden, and revealing. It is the sign of death and rebirth and can also be dark and fearful, which is something that Scorpio wants us to face. With Jupiter here, it may also help us to have positive experiences, or help us to overcome any of the challenging expressions, in relation to this sign. Scorpio also rules investments, inheritance, taxes, debts, and pooled/shared resources. During this last month and over the coming month, some people may experience some sort of developments or circumstances in those areas.

New Moon Quincunx Uranus and Semi-Sextile Saturn

In the days leading up to this New Moon, the Sun has been in a quincunx aspect with Uranus while it is also being carried into this upcoming lunar cycle. This could have brought, or will bring, some surprises, disruptions, changes, separations, complications with technology, or accidents. It shakes things up. For many people, it could be related to the Scorpio themes mentioned above. A similar Uranus energy has also been strong in the previous month, however, this current aspect can manifest in ways calling for us to make some adjustments due to new circumstances.

The good news is that this New Moon is in a tight semi-sextile to Saturn. Although this is not a particularly strong aspect, it can help us to be realistic, practical, disciplined, and productive, and can help us to focus while handling any changes or disruptions, as mentioned above. Saturn is also still somewhat in a trine with Uranus, which may call for us to be innovative and do things in new ways when it comes to our commitments, careers, responsibilities, or structures.

Scorpio Rulers Mars and Pluto in a Tense Square

Scorpio’s traditional ruler, Mars, is in a tight square with its modern sub-ruler, Pluto, at the time of this New Moon. This energy can help to give us a powerful and perhaps obsessive drive or desire, which in some cases can help us to overcome and break through challenges. However, many people will notice that their efforts or desires are being met with power struggles and conflicts. Combined with all the other Scorpio energy, this can also bring up intense emotions and suppressed feelings connected to the issues that arise.

With Mars being in Libra, these could have to do with partnerships and relationships, and relate to doing what is fair, balanced, and considerate. Although there can be the challenges and intensity, as mentioned above, in some cases this energy can also stimulate strong sexual passion among lovers.

Mercury Going Retrograde Soon, Neptune Going Direct

Mercury started its pre-shadow retrograde period on November 14 and will begin the actual retrograde in Sagittarius on December 3. Some of the developments happening in our lives between now and then will go through a ‘sorting out’ and ‘recalibrating’ process during the retrograde in December. These things may require adjustments or we can have realizations that they are not going to work due to previous unknown factors. We may also start to notice some of the well-known retrograde complications get stronger over the next few weeks.

Neptune has been retrograde since June and it is now currently appearing almost stationary in the sky, as it is about to go forward again on November 22. Some of the things that were going on at that time and since then may reach some sort of conclusion or different way of moving forward.

Considering that it is Neptune, it could have something to do with how we express creativity, spirituality, compassion, or selflessness, or could be related to delusions, escapism, avoidance, addictions, or being ungrounded. Some people may start to realize (or begun to realize in June) that they were not seeing a situation clearly or perhaps projecting illusions onto a situation going on in their life.

Making Intentions and Things to Consider During This Period

Is there any area of your life that is calling for transformation? What are your desires and deep emotions telling you? What adjustments or changes do you need to make in your life as a result of things that have transpired recently or near this New Moon? If you have been experiencing challenging changes, what do you need to do to stay on track or keep things functional? What does fairness and balance look like to you and what needs to be done to ensure that your actions achieve it?

These are just some examples of what your intentions can be oriented around, but they don’t need to be limited to them. The exact time of this New Moon will be at 11:42am Universal Time on November 18. You can click here to find out what that is in your time zone. It is best to make your intentions as close to the New Moon as possible and even up a half hour prior to when it occurs. If that is not possible, they can even be done within the first 24 hours following.

What The Body of A Pregnant Woman Eating Organic Looks Like Compared To One Eating Conventional

Fri, 2017-11-17 17:13

*Republished article with some minor updates 

It seems as if it was yesterday when the masses were completely unaware of the concerns being raised by a number of internationally recognized scientists regarding Genetically Modified Foods (GM). Now, dozens of countries in Europe have completely banned or have severe restrictions on GMOs, which includes the pesticides that go along with them. In fact, 19 new countries in Europe recently banned the growing of Genetically Modified foods in their countries, citing a number of health and environmental concerns. You can read more about that here.

The Difference Between Organic Food & Conventional Food

According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), organic farms and processors must not use any genetically modified ingredients. This means that organic farmers can’t plant GMO seeds, an organic cow can’t eat GMO feed, an organic soup producer can’t use any GMO ingredients, and so on. Farmers and processors must show that they aren’t using GMOs and that they are protecting their products from contact with prohibited substances from farm to table. In order for something to qualify as organic, it must also be free from most synthetic materials, like pesticides and antibiotics. (source)(source)

Conventional food is (obviously) the exact opposite. Conventional food can be sprayed with pesticides, contain genetically modified ingredients, as well as administer antibiotics.

Eating Organic vs Eating Conventional

In 2012, a widely reported Stanford University study concluded that there is little difference in the healthfulness and safety of conventional and organic food. (source) Since its publication, experts in the environmental and health sciences department criticized the study for completely overlooking a large and growing body of evidence regarding the adverse effects of pesticides. More specifically, a letter accepted for publication in the Annals of Internal Medicine pointed to the lack of information in the study regarding extensive data on the number, frequency, potential combinations, and associated health risks of pesticide residues in sprayed food. This publication calculated a 94% reduction in health risk attributable to eating organic forms of six pesticide intensive fruits. (source)

So is organic food more nutritious?

“In carefully designed studies comparing organic and conventional apples, strawberries, grapes, tomatoes, milk, carrots, grains and several other raw foods, organic farming leads to increases on the order of 10% to 30% in the levels of several nutrients, but not all. Vitamin C, antioxidants, and phenolic acids tend to be higher in organic food about 60% to 80% of the time, while vitamin A and protein is higher in conventional food 50% to 80% of the time.” – Charles Benbrook, research professor and program leader for Measure to Manage (M2M): Far and Food Diagnostics for Sustainability and Health at Washington State University (source)

A team led by Kristen Brant, a scientist at the Human Nutrition Research Center Newcastle University in the United Kingdom, carried out one of the most sophisticated meta-analysis of the “organic-versus-conventional food” nutrient-content debate. Their analysis was published in Critical Reviews in Plant Sciences in 2011, under the title, “Agroecosystem Management and Nutritional Quality of Plant Foods: The Cause of Organic Fruits and Vegetables.” (source)(source)

This study documents significant differences in favour of organically grown food and explains the different, yet basic farming system factors that lead to these differences. They concluded that increasing the amount of plant-available nitrogen, which is typically found in conventional farming, reduces the accumulation of (plant) defence related secondary metabolites and vitamin C, while the contents of secondary metabolites such as carotenes that are not involved in defense against disease and pests may increase.

They also found that secondary plant metabolite based nutrients in fruits and vegetables are 12 percent higher, on average, in organic food compared to conventionally grown food. Another group of nutrients that are composed of plant secondary metabolites that are involved in plant defenses against pests and response to stress were, on average, 16 percent higher.

“This subset encompasses most of the important, plant-based antioxidants that promote good health through multiple mechanisms.”

The team of researchers estimated that the consumption of organic fruits and vegetables is associated with a 12 percent higher nutrient level intake.

This is just one example of research conducted showing higher nutrient levels in organically grown food, and we are not even talking about pesticides yet.

One thing about organic food is that it’s not sprayed. A recent study conducted by researchers from RMIT university, published in the journal Environmental Research, found that an organic diet for just one week significantly reduced pesticide exposure in adults by 90 percent. (source)

Cynthia Curl, an assistant professor in the School of Allied Health Sciences Department of Community and Environmental Health at Boise State university, recently published a pesticide exposure study in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives. Results of her research indicated that among individuals eating similar amounts of vegetables and fruits, the ones who reported eating organic produce had significantly lower OP pesticide exposure than those who normally consume conventionally grown produce. You can read more about that here.

Below is a very interesting clip titled “The Organic Effect” from the Swedish Environmental Research Institute. Watch what happened when this family decided to switch to organic food. Here is the full report.

“The change in how agriculture is produced has brought, frankly, a change in the profile of diseases. We’ve gone from a pretty healthy population to one with a high rate of cancer, birth defects and illnesses seldom seen before. The tobacco companies denied the link between smoking and cancer, and took decades to recognize the truth. The biotech and agrochemical corporations are the same as the tobacco industry; they lie and favor business over the health of the population.” – Dr. Medardo Avila Vazquez, a paediatrician specializing in environmental health (source)(source)(source) (Related CE Article on the GMO/Cancer link in Argentina here)

The list literally goes on and on, the pesticides that are sprayed on our food have been linked to a variety of diseases, and high risk pesticides rarely appear as residues in organic food, and when they do, the levels are usually much lower than those found in conventional foods -especially the levels in imported produce. (source)

“I recently completed an assessment of relative pesticide health risks from residues in six important fruits – strawberries, apples, grapes, blueberries, pears, and peaches. Using the latest data from USDA’s Pesticide Data Program (USDA, 2012) on these foods, I found that the overall pesticide risk level in the conventional brands was 17.5-times higher than the organic brands. The differences translate into a 94 percent reduction in health risk from the selection of organic brands.” – Charles Benbrook, research professor and program leader for Measure to Manage (M2M): Far and Food Diagnostics for Sustainability and Health at Washington State University, from his letter that was published in the Annals of Internal Medicine (source)

This is very clinically significant, and this is why more and more people are starting to be concerned about pesticide related health risks.

The work of Chensheng (Alex) Lu, from the Harvard School of public health is well known. He has shown that when school-age children switch to a predominately organic diet, exposures to organophosphate (OP) insecticides are almost completely eliminated.  (source)

“Children today are sicker than they were a generation ago. From childhood cancers to autism, birth defects and asthma, a wide range of childhood diseases and disorders are on the rise. Our assessment of the latest science leaves little room for doubt; pesticides are one key driver of this sobering trend.” October 2012 report by Pesticide Action Network North America (PANNA) (source)(source)

Organic Versus Conventional If You’re Pregnant

“How could we have ever believed that it was a good idea to grow our food with poisons?…As part of the process, they portrayed the various concerns as merely the ignorant opinions of misinformed individuals –and derided them as not only unscientific, but anti-science. They then set to work to convince the public and government officials, through the dissemination of false information, that there was an overwhelming expert consensus, based on solid evidence, that GMOs were safe” – Jane Goodall

Now, take all of the information above (which is just a fraction of what’s out there), and think about a woman who is pregnant. GMOs (and the pesticides that go with them) are fairly young. They’ve only been around since the late 1990’s, and the children born when the emergence of GMOs was just starting are now growing up. We have yet to see the long term effects, and it’s scary to consider that no long term studies have been cited by major government organizations confirming the long term consumption of GMO foods. Just like geneticist David Suzuki said, “by slipping it into our food without our knowledge, without any indication that there are genetically modified organisms in our food, we are now unwittingly part of a massive experiment.”

The only long term study that’s been conducted was done independently, obviously away from industry sponsorship. It was published in Environmental Sciences Europe last yearand found GMO maize, along with roundup herbicide exposure led to cancer, liver/kidney damage as well as severe hormonal disruption. Roundup ready is sprayed on GM crops that have been engineered to resist it.(source)

The active ingredient in roundup is Glyphosate, which was recently linked to cancer by the World Health Organization (source).

Pesticides sprayed on our food have also been linked to birth defects. (source)  A paper published in the journal Pediatrics found that prenatal exposure to some of the pesticides sprayed on our food could impair the anthropometric development of the fetus, reducing the birth weight, length, and head circumference. (source)

There are a number of studies that have examined pesticide induced diseases when it comes to the fetus. You can view some of them here.

Numerous studies have linked agricultural pesticides to autism. You can find those studies here.

Canadian research has also identified the presence of pesticides associated with genetically modified foods in maternal, fetal, and non pregnant woman’s blood. They also found the presence of Monsanto’s Bt toxin. The study was published in the Journal Reproductive Toxicology in 2011. (source)

The study concluded, apart from pesticides, that Monsanto’s Bt toxins are clearly detectable and appear to cross the placenta to the fetus. The study pointed out that the fetus is considered to be highly susceptible to the adverse affects of xenobiotics (foreign chemical substances found within an organism that is not naturally produced). This is why the study emphasized knowing more about GMOs is crucial, because environmental agents could disrupt the biological events that are required to ensure normal growth and development.

Affording Organic Food

I believe if you can afford to eat conventional food, you can afford a wide variety of organic food. If you don’t believe me, try adding up what you spend in a month on conventional fruits and vegetables. Then switch to organic (only fruits and vegetables) and see what you spend in a month. If you’ll do that, you’ll notice no significant difference.

Cut out most of the junk food in your life, and try it with all of your food, and you still probably won’t. That being said, the way the system is set up to make organic food more expensive is ridiculous.

As far as feeding the world, what we throw away could do that. The money we spend on war in a couple of years could do that, and we are being told that GMOs do that when they actually don’t?

Sustainable agricultural practices could be set up all over the world. GMO farming is not really sustainable and this has been demonstrated time and time again. One example is in India, where  Monsanto’s insect-repellent Bt cotton wreaked havoc on the country’s farmers. Those seeds cost twice as much as conventional ones and required greater inputs of water and expensive herbicides and pesticides. As a result, thousands of Indian farmers committed suicide.

The Union of Concerned Scientists reminds us that GM crops are not guaranteed, as promised by company advertising. They still fail to produce promised yields, and farmers are not permitted to save seeds due to the company’s patent. As a result, entire communities can be pushed to the brink of starvation.

Every person on the planet can feed themselves with just 100 square feet of well managed land. In 2008, the UN Conference of Trade and development supported organics, saying that organic agriculture can be more conducive to food security in Africa than most conventional production systems, and is more likely to be sustainable in the long term.

Keystone Pipeline Leaks 210,000 Gallons of Oil In South Dakota: This is Why We Stood With Standing Rock

Fri, 2017-11-17 16:30

Keystone XL, the tar sands pipeline that connects Alberta, Canada, t0 Gulf Coast refineries and carries nearly 1 million barrels of tar sands oil per day across the U.S. to be refined, exported, and burned, has just leaked 210,000 gallons of oil in South Dakota.

This comes after a massive protest gathered thousands upon thousands of people, including CE team members, in North Dakota, near the lands of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, to oppose the pipeline. Peaceful protestors and water protectors were threatened and physically abused by a militarized police force working for the corporation.

It was truly an unbelievable sight. The pipeline threatens a water supply upon which many people depend. Yet officials have said, according to the Guardian, they “do not believe the leak in TransCanada Corp’s pipeline . . . affected drinking water.” 

This type of statement is what we have come to expect from corporate representatives. However, the reality of the matter is that pipelines always leak, and they always cause significant damage at some point or another, most of which goes underreported. So why risk it?

Oil is completely unnecessary, and there really is no justification for its use. We have solar, wind, and magnetic power, all of which could easily replace this entire industry. The only problem is, a small group of corporations and the people that run them dominate the energy industry. Even though new technologies have been around for decades, they have yet to see t he light of day.

It’s not too difficult to see through the false claims that were used to justify the pipeline’s construction. Before the pipeline was completed, for example, the corporation claimed it would be “the safest and most advanced oil pipeline operation in North America.”

As a result of this recent spill, the pipeline was shut down yesterday, and it’s possible the leak might have affected surface water bodies as well as threatened certain drinking water systems. According to Brain Walsh, an environmental scientist manager at the South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources, which has dispatched a staff member to the site, however, such contamination is unlikely.

We can only hope he’s right, because we’ve seen this happen many times in the past.

The human race has so much potential, and this world we live in can change. We do not need to use oil to generate energy; in fact, the oil industry is being used to “create more jobs” and further push along the agenda of “globalization,” one which continues to destroy our planet for the purpose of economic advancement.

Drastic changes are needed, and the backbone of the global economy, oil, needs to transition into the clean energy options that are available in abundance today.

One great example, out of many, is NOCA clean energy, who have manufactured a generator that Collective Evolution has vetted for ourselves. Few people are aware of the fact that solar and wind energy technologies are actually quite primitive. That being said, they are more than enough to power our world and shift it completely toward clean energy.

Unfortunately, Donald Trump issued a federal permit for the project last March, even though it was rejected by the Obama administration. Since then, it’s received approval from the Canadian province of Alberta, as well as Nebraska.

This is what happens when corporations have so much influence over governments, which are supposed to represent the voice of the people. There were and are millions of people across the nation demanding more care be given to the environment and calling for an end to these pipelines, yet they continue to go through.

Do we really live in a democracy if such things, which defy the will of the people, keep happening?

 

 

 

Human Destiny Revealed at the End of the Yellow Brick Road

Fri, 2017-11-17 15:17

One of life’s most enduring mysteries is that of human destiny.

Many a philosopher have debated whether it’s an invention of human thought or if our long-standing curiosity is a mechanism of evolution (creation in process) designed to propel humanity forward.

“Every next level of your life will demand a different you.”

— Leonardo DiCaprio

Regardless of what you believe, what seems to be universal is the calling by your soul to fulfill your personal destiny once you awaken enough to hear it.

It used to be you were born one character per lifetime, living and dying the same. Helped by society, people stayed in the lane they were born. Indoctrination now begins as early as two and three years of age; young children pushed into “structured” group settings call preschool.

Programming the child from an early age to become a good worker and consumer, our education system dumbs down natural-born creative inner genius (divergent thinking) from 98% in children to less than 2% by adulthood, a study has proven.

Only a handful of notable individuals have scaled Maslow’s Hierarchy of Self-Actualization to free themselves of the confinement of culture and conditioning to live out a life of creative genius each one of us is gifted at birth.

Because these courageous women and men paid attention, they lived out a personal destiny so extraordinary relative to the masses that all of humanity felt the ground shiver with unlimited possibility when they spoke, wrote, or graced the world with their presence.

What’s Your Destiny?

The reality is, very few are courageous enough to break voluntarily from herd mentality.

“Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.”

— Yoda

We fear to have a destiny as much as we fear not having one. We fear failure. We fear greatness. We simply fear change. Fear is the #1 reason people wallow in misery rather than dare to make simple changes that would improve the quality of their life dramatically.

Why? People hang onto what’s familiar rather than let go for the unknown — even if could mean the end of suffering.

Maybe you’re trying to discover your creative inner genius… or break away from a miserable job… or find meaning and purpose in your life… or just be happy and at peace.

Trust Life

It’s okay to be afraid — just don’t get stuck there. Fearlessness is for fools. Courage’s true definition is sticking around even when you are very afraid.

And if you refuse change?

Change becomes dramatic upheaval when you don’t review your thoughts, words, and actions continuously (conscious living) to see if you are serving not only your personal well-being but the well-being of everyone in your field of influence. This is self-leadership.

If you don’t self-correct, life steps in.

This goes for institutions, too. We are witnessing dramatic upheaval in the world because the negative benefits of a society built out of separation consciousness are no longer sustainable. The more you or groups of like-minded individuals fight to preserve tradition, the greater the human suffering.

“If you’re receptive and open, you’ll see it’s okay to relax, take your hands off the wheel, and trust life.” ~ TWEET THIS

Your journey is unique, but its aspects are common to everyone. It may give you comfort to understand what’s happening as you continue to awaken to the miraculous within. Your destiny and humanity’s destiny are one and the same.

Our Universal Hero’s Journey

The Wizard of Oz’s Dorothy perfectly illustrates the hero’s journey as identified by American scholar Joseph Campbell.

Our heroine consciously chooses to take a journey into the heart of darkness and the unknown, where things get pretty wild. Dorothy has her moments of fear and self-doubt, but notice she receives exactly the right support at the right time to push through. And so will you.

After Dorothy realizes the pigpen of the limited life she’s fallen into, she ditches it for bigger and better things. Along the way, Dorothy runs into self-doubt’s Professor Marvel, who dissuades her from making any changes in her life. Life honours Dorothy’s “yes” to her soul’s swansong, sending an F5 tornado to whisk her away to new lands.

Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, quickly appears to guide her. But, in a dualistic third dimension — if there is the light of your Higher Self, there is the ego’s dark side, the Wicked Witch of the West, to make life rough for you because you’ve killed her sister, the Wicked Witch of the East, weakening ego’s hold over you.

Signposts

In the nick of time, a sign appears — physical proof all things work for the good. You’ve been endowed with the ruby red slippers previously belonging to ego, taking back some of your power.

Appearing to lack a way back to Kansas, she follows Glinda’s prompt to step upon the path of enlightenment as she seeks wisdom outside of herself that will guide her home.

Down the yellow brick road, she meets the Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Cowardly Lion. They are Mind, Body, and Spirit. They join her on the journey as external characters, but really, Dorothy must unite consciously all three to make her final discovery.

Don’t Get Distracted

The foursome stops along the way to admire a beautiful field of colourful poppies that distract them so much they completely fall back under the spell of Maya (separation consciousness). The shiny things in your life are technology, relationship drama, and busyness that distract you from renewing your connection to Source each day through reflection and meditation.

Alas, once Dorothy reaches the Wizard, she is sent off on an errand to retrieve the witch’s broomstick. As long as you search outside yourself for what is found within, ego will send you on an endless loop of things to “do,” known as struggle, to reach your goals.

You will repeatedly crash and burn — your dark night of the soul — until you finally see that struggle (ego) has gotten you nowhere. Notice, the Universe keeps sending you unconditional gifts and signs until you realize that the Source of Life and Life are the same. This is your shift from separation to unity consciousness.

Thus, it is revealed that separation from Source is an illusion. Glinda, the Good Witch, confirms Dorothy always had the power to go “home.” The struggle was the removal of the veil via direct experience.

Intertwined and inseparable is collective human destiny as we converge as One in perfect union with the Infinite. This is our destiny. Home is our return to Source — without going anywhere at all.

Your brilliant moment is when you realize there is nothing to do and nowhere to go. You already are that which you seek. All are found within you, given freely to you as a gift.

Know this, and you’ve just created Heaven on Earth.

You are already brilliant.

You are already perfect.

You are already Home.

Can you feel it?

Refusal to Vaccinate Child Gets Mom Jail Time: A Deeper Analysis

Fri, 2017-11-17 15:03

This work is reproduced and distributed with the permission of GreenMedInfoLLC. Want to learn more from GreenMedInfo? Sign up for the newsletter here.  It was written by Jeffery Jackson, a researcher, independent investigative journalist, writer and voice for health freedom on the front lines of society’s shift towards higher consciousness.  Visit his website here to learn more.

“I want to make it perfectly clear. We’re leaving here today. Dad’s picking the child up and he’s going to be vaccinated regardless of what Mom did or didn’t do.” 

These were the words of Oakland County judge Karen McDonald during the open minutes of the recent court room proceedings that continue to grab international headlines. Metro Detroit’s Rebecca Bredow, the Mom, now sits in an Oakland Country jail with a criminal record forever attached to her name. Her 9-year-old son is now in temporary custody of his father who is ordered by the court to bring the child up to date on the boy’s vaccination status, which will be up to eight vaccines “…as rapidly as medically necessary.”

Unfortunately in America, the end result of cases like Bredow’s are becoming more and more common.  

Some are saying Bredow refused to vaccinate her child and is getting what she deserved but is it really that simple? The mainstream, corporate media narrative is attempting to paint a picture that Bredow’s case is an uncommon, one-and-done occurrence. The narrative is also suggesting that the family court process, when vaccination status is concerned, is a stone solid justice machine based on ‘settled vaccine science.’ The reality is that the judge and the court are taking a known and dangerous medical risk with another person’s child that they have no right to take. Do courts have the right to order an unavoidably unsafe medical intervention like vaccination in custody cases?

At minute 3:30 Judge McDonald makes clear her forced vaccination agenda.

Joel Dorfman of Michigan for Vaccine Choice, a group that advocates for parents’ rights to refuse vaccines told the Detroit Free Press, “If this child is injured as a result of being given eight immunizations, who do you think is going to take care of the child? The judge?”

According to Judge McDonald, Bredow’s case is about her refusal to follow court orders she previously agreed to. McDonald ruled Bredow was in criminal contempt for not following a 2016 agreement to vaccinate her child. However Bredow says that her attorney at the time signed the order and advised her not to worry since she had filed state waivers and vaccine exemptions each year in Michigan for her child. In Michigan, parents or guardians of children enrolled in public and private schools are required to attend an educational session before they are granted waivers.

Lecturing from the bench, Judge McDonald told Bredow “I understand you love your children. But what I don’t think you understand is that your son has two parents, and dad gets a say,” Her statement seems reasonable yet it is important to note that Bredow has primary caregiver status. Digging deeper into the information of the case, Judge McDonald’s recent ruling gives physical custody of the child to the ex-husband James Horne. In the past, Child Protective Services did an investigation on Horne and the case was confirmed as a Category 3 revealing a preponderance of evidence against him which the court knew about.

What about medical expert testimony? Although Bredow’s case didn’t involve the testimony of an expert witness or medical professional, this tactic is often a nonstarter in US courts. The courts don’t decide and rule on the science, their job is to weigh the evidence. For each doctor or expert witness brave enough to go on record against the safety of vaccines in a given case, there are many more doctors who are will testify for them. In addition, all US health agencies and organizations still toe the line for the false ‘safe and effective’ vaccine narrative and refuse to factor in any new or highly relevant information that says otherwise.

During the recent ruling, Judge McDonald appeared to be reading from a prewritten statement when handing down her decision suggesting that she did not factor in the day’s testimony and dialogue. If that is the case, perhaps McDonald’s prewritten decision was in response to the attention Bredow drew to the case by going to the media. Section 600.1715 of Michigan’s Revised Judicature Act of 1961 states:

“If the contempt consists of the omission to perform some act or duty that is still within the power of the person to perform, the imprisonment shall be terminated when the person performs the act or duty or no longer has the power to perform the act or duty…”

The “act or duty” to vaccinate Bredow’s 9-year-old child was ordered by the court to be done by the ex-husband. In addition, Bredow no longer had the power to perform the act or duty in question. It seems that, given the language of the act, Bredow’s jail time was handed down as a warning and a lesson rather than a necessary legal measure.

Re: Court Ordered arrest and imprisonment of Rebecca Bredow
Date: October 9, 2017
All around the US, parents are witness to an epidemic of vaccine injury, as evidenced by the fact that The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986 (42 U.S.C. §§ 300aa-1 to 300aa-34) has paid out over $3.7 billion in damages to families with vaccine injured members.
There are some relevant facts of which should be made aware:
1 vaccine is given on a single day (Miller, 2016):

“Abstract
Although health authorities including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) claim that childhood vaccines are safe and recommend combining multiple vaccines during one visit, a review of data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) shows a dose-dependent association between the number of vaccines administered simultaneously and the likelihood of hospitalization or death for an adverse reaction. Additionally, younger age at the time of the adverse reaction is associated with a higher risk of hospitalization or death.”

Miller, NZ. 2016. Combining childhood vaccines at one visit is not safe. Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons 21:47-49. http://www.jpands.org/vol21no2/miller.pdf

(2) Vaccine safety science in the US, including studies conducted or funded by CDC and vaccine manufacturers, is scandal-ridden. See Chatom Primary Care v. Merck (Case number 2:12-cv-03555), for example, in which two former Merck employees have alleged that they were told to falsify the efficacy data for Merck’s Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine. They allege that antibodies against the mumps virus from rabbits were added to human serum samples to increase the apparent effectiveness of the MMR vaccine; those data were in fact submitted to the FDA, Merck received continuation of their contract, edging out competition.

(3) CDC Scientist William Thompson has alleged that his supervisors removed results showing a positive association between on-time MMR vaccination and autism in two clinical groups. Thompson’s statements will be mailed to you under separate cover.

(4) All vaccines are watched for safety issues in post-market surveillance studies. When these studies find no safety issue, the resulting clinical studies are hailed by vaccine proponents as “science”. When the studies find issues, they are rejected and downplayed as mere “correlation studies”. Nevertheless, they are studies. Retrospective studies are used based on vaccine injury reports submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS). Thus, all individuals who choose to vaccinate are human subjects in a massive clinical study.
Under US Federal Regulations, all individuals in clinical studies are entitled to informed consent. The FDA states, “Post-marketing surveillance is a necessary component of vaccine safety monitoring” and because vaccine pre-clinical trials are relatively small and controlled, “previously unstudied components of a patient’s social or medical history may be risk factors which could impact the outcome of vaccination and contribute to the development of adverse events” (Post-marketing surveillance for adverse events after vaccination: the national Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System).

Most of the studies conducted on vaccine safety rely on post-marketing surveillance using weak “association studies” with data from passively collected data sources (such as VAERS). Patients are not informed that they, or their children are, in fact, participating in a large, shoddily-run, non-randomized retrospective clinical trial. This practice is widespread, and violates provisions of the National Research Act [Title II, Public Law 93-348], Regulations for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research [45 CFR 46] and revisions of various regulations, rules, and laws ([21 CFR 50, [21 CFR 56], [45 CFR 46 Subpart D], [10 CFR 745].

Pregnant women and fetuses are afforded special protections by [45 CFR 46 Subpart B], and children are afforded additional protections by [45 CFR 46 Subpart D]. Yet the rights of pregnant women and fetuses are violated with each and every vaccine administered to them because not only is there a paucity of pre-licensing clinical trials, no vaccine is actually licensed for use to protect fetuses, and pregnant women are not told any of this as they are pressured to get vaccinated (FDA: Vaccines For Use in Pregnancy).
Of note, in the Common Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects (“Common Rule”)

[10 CFR 745] Sec 745.103(b)(3), none of these rights were revoked by any subsequent legislation, including [21 CFR 50.24], which allows the relaxation of requirements for informed consent during emergencies. In fact the Common Rule re-asserted safeguards both for informed consent, and for special protections against coercion:

§46.116 General requirements for informed consent.
Except as provided elsewhere in this policy, no investigator may involve a human being as a subject in research covered by this policy unless the investigator has obtained the legally effective informed consent of the subject or the subject’s legally authorized representative. An investigator shall seek such consent only under circumstances that provide the prospective subject or the representative sufficient opportunity to consider whether or not to participate and that minimize the possibility of coercion or undue influence. The information that is given to the subject or the representative shall be in language understandable to the subject or the representative. No informed consent, whether oral or written, may include any exculpatory language through which the subject or the representative is made to waive or appear to waive any of the subject’s legal rights, or releases or appears to release the investigator, the sponsor, the institution or its agents from liability for negligence.
“When some or all of the subjects are likely to be vulnerable to coercion or undue influence, such as children, prisoners, pregnant women, mentally disabled persons, or economically or educationally disadvantaged persons, additional safeguards have been included in the study to protect the rights and welfare of these subjects.”

Here we provide the relevant text of the Nuremberg Code which offers protection under international law to all individuals from enrollment in clinical trials without their informed consent, and stresses the rights of patients to refuse:

“Permissible Medical Experiments
The great weight of the evidence before us to effect that certain types of medical experiments on human beings, when kept within reasonably well-defined bounds, conform to the ethics of the medical profession generally. The protagonists of the practice of human experimentation justify their views on the basis that such experiments yield results for the good of society that are unprocurable by other methods or means of study. All agree, however, that certain basic principles must be observed in order to satisfy moral, ethical and legal concepts:
The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment.

The duty and responsibility for ascertaining the quality of the consent rests upon each individual who initiates, directs, or engages in the experiment. It is a personal duty and responsibility which may not be delegated to another with impunity.

The experiment should be such as to yield fruitful results for the good of society, unprocurable by other methods or means of study, and not random and unnecessary in nature.

The experiment should be so designed and based on the results of animal experimentation and a knowledge of the natural history of the disease or other problem under study that the anticipated results justify the performance of the experiment.

The experiment should be so conducted as to avoid all unnecessary physical and mental suffering and injury.

No experiment should be conducted where there is an a priori reason to believe that death or disabling injury will occur; except, perhaps, in those experiments where the experimental physicians also serve as subjects.

The degree of risk to be taken should never exceed that determined by the humanitarian importance of the problem to be solved by the experiment.

Proper preparations should be made and adequate facilities provided to protect the experimental subject against even remote possibilities of injury, disability or death.

The experiment should be conducted only by scientifically qualified persons. The highest degree of skill and care should be required through all stages of the experiment of those who conduct or engage in the experiment.

During the course of the experiment the human subject should be at liberty to bring the experiment to an end if he has reached the physical or mental state where continuation of the experiment seems to him to be impossible.

During the course of the experiment the scientist in charge must be prepared to terminate the experiment at any stage, if he has probable cause to believe, in the exercise of the good faith, superior skill and careful judgment required of him, that a continuation of the experiment is likely to result in injury, disability, or death to the experimental subject.”

Rights to Informed Consent or Refusal of Medical Procedures
Under US Law, all individuals, and legal wards (custodians) of children have the right to choose or refuse medical procedures. The doctrine of informed consent is based upon the right of every individual to determine what shall be done to his or her body in connection with medical treatment. To exercise this right, the patient is entitled to information of a sufficient nature to allow him or her to make an informed decision on whether or not to consent or refuse treatment. Because patients are entitled to this information, physicians have a duty to make reasonable disclosures to their patients about the risks associated with proposed treatment. The duty to obtain a patient’s consent for treatment rests on the patient’s treating physician. Hospitals, nurses, surgical assistants, and referring physicians do not owe this duty to their patients. The treating physician’s duty to obtain a patient’s informed consent cannot be delegated. The duty is not eliminated, lessened, or spread by having the hospital nurse secure the patient’s consent prior to the procedure.

Here we provide to you the rules governing informed consent for medical procedures in the State of Michigan (R 330.7003):
R 330.7003 Informed consent.

“Rule 7003. (1) All of the following are elements of informed consent:
(a) Legal competency. An individual shall be presumed to be legally
competent. This presumption may be rebutted only by a court appointment of a guardian or exercise by a court of guardianship powers and only to the extent of the scope and duration of the guardianship. An individual shall be presumed legally competent
regarding matters that are not within the scope and authority of the guardianship.

(b) Knowledge. To consent, a recipient or legal representative must have basic information about the procedure, risks, other related consequences, and other relevant information. The standard governing required disclosure by a doctor is what a reasonable patient needs to know in order to make an informed decision. Other relevant information includes all of the following:

(i) The purpose of the procedures.
(ii) A description of the attendant discomforts, risks, and benefits that can reasonably be expected.
(iii) A disclosure of appropriate alternatives advantageous to the recipient.
(iv) An offer to answer further inquiries.
(c) Comprehension. An individual must be able to understand what the personal implications of providing consent will be based upon the information provided under subdivision (b) of this subrule.
(d) Voluntariness. There shall be free power of choice without the intervention of an element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion, including promises or assurances of privileges or freedom. There shall be an instruction that an individual is free to withdraw consent and to discontinue participation or activity at any time without prejudice to the recipient.
(2) A provider shall establish written policies that include procedures for evaluating comprehension and for assuring disclosure of relevant information and measures to ensure voluntariness before obtaining consent. The policies and procedures shall specify for specific circumstances the types of information that shall be disclosed and steps that may be taken to protect voluntariness. The procedures shall include a mechanism for determining whether guardianship proceedings should be considered.
(3) Informed consent shall be reobtained if changes in circumstances
substantially change the risks, other consequences, or benefits that were previously expected.
(4) A written agreement documenting an informed consent shall not include any exculpatory language through which the recipient, or a person consenting on the recipient’s behalf, waives or appears to waive, a legal right, including a release of a provider or its agents from liability for negligence. The agreement shall embody the basic elements of informed consent in the particular context. The individual, guardian, or parent consenting shall be given adequate opportunity to read the document before signing it. The requirement of a written consent shall not eliminate, where essential to the individual’s understanding or
otherwise deemed advisable, a reading of the document to the individual or an oral explanation in a language the individual understands. A note of the explanation and by whom made shall be placed in the record along with the written consent.
(5) A consent is executed when it is signed by the appropriate individual.
History: 1979 AC; 1998 AACS.”

In consideration of these laws and Codes, we assert that:

(1) With the unlawful detention of Rebecca Bredow, and the decision to usurp her right to choose for her child “X”, the state has enjoined as actors in the violation of informed consent for medical research on the safety of vaccines, and further,

(2) The Court has, with events leading up to Judge McDonald’s order to detain and imprison Rebecca Bredow, engaged in activities that are designed to coerce Rebecca Bredow to make a decision against her better judgement;

(3) The State of Michigan has, by following the order of Judge McDonald to arrest and imprison Rebecca Bredow, prevented her from exercising her international, federal and state-afforded rights to decide whether her child, X, should receive any, some, or no vaccines, and unlawfully denied her certain freedoms to which she is entitled under the laws of the State of Michigan and the United States of America;

(4) The State of Michigan has, by allowing her ex-husband to participate in the act of vaccinating X, countermanded the custodial decision handed down to Rebecca, in which she was given the rights, duties and responsibilities of primary custodial parent.

We are deeply concerned about Rebecca Bredow’s, and all citizens’ freedom to work, live and act according to the liberties afforded to her by the US Constitution and its Amendments. We are gravely concerned over the actions of the State of Michigan resembling those of a Police State, with arbitrary actions and issuances from the Court which show contempt for the right of parents to make medical decisions for and on behalf of their children. We would like to register, with the Court and with the Governor’s Office, a message that the State of Michigan should stand down on the issue of state-forced vaccinations; that morally and legally the State of Michigan should defend, not impinge upon parent’s rights to choose medical procedures; that the State of Michigan will be morally and legally responsible for any injuries to any children that state-forced vaccinations incur upon the population, and the freedom-loving people everywhere are deeply concerned about how far the State of Michigan will eventually go in the matter of State-forced medical tyranny.

We ask:

(1) That from this day forward, in all cases of in which questions legal custody are being decided or contested, that the Court see the wisdom in deciding on the custody issues first, independent of the question of whether the child is to be vaccinated, and then allow the custodial parent to exercise their right to choose, or refuse, to vaccinate their child. This will secure and guarantee parents’ rights and set the correct precedent for jurisprudence on this matter. These rights are provided by the State of Michigan to all citizens, including those engaged in custodial disputes.

(2) That you immediately order the release of Rebecca Bredow and any and all other citizens who are currently imprisoned for willfully exercises their rights to choose or refuse medical procedures.
