Mind at the Centre – The Radical Liberation of My Mental World ~ Michael Grosso.

Mind at the Centre. 

The Radical Liberation of My Mental World.

By Michael Grosso  

Guest Writer for Wake Up World.

June 1st, 2019. 

 

 

 

It is a curious fact that we have successfully used our minds to penetrate profound secrets of the physical universe, but when it comes to grasping the nature of our minds, we are baffled. This is the famous mind-body problem, the ‘hard’ problem being to account for our consciousness, which is utterly unlike anything physical. The mind, it seems, has a hard time trying to understand itself.
In this essay, I describe how I evolved my view of the subject, which is deeply at odds with mainstream physicalism. Without putting a label on my view, there were two crucial steps I took, theoretical and empirical.


First, a comment on the word empirical – it comes from a Greek verb that means ‘experience’, but the modern trend has been to use it only for sense experience, which is too narrow. All kinds of experience are possible, including dreams, out-of-body states, hallucinations, visionary trances – the whole range of reported mental experiences.
Certain experiences I had were decisive in helping me form my concept of mind. Very few people are concerned with trying to understand the nature of their own minds; we all use our minds constantly but rarely reflectively. This shouldn’t surprise us. Our brains evolved to help us survive and replicate in a material world. To wonder too much at the mysteries of being could be extremely hazardous. To do so represents a study called philosophy of mind, one of a subset of problems that come under the heading of metaphysics.
The question about the nature of our minds is not only fundamental but riddled with controversy. Nor is the topic inconsequential, as I suggest in my conclusion. But here is the problem – in an age of advanced physical science, a certain default conception of mind has jelled into a state of uncritical acceptance. Although people constantly use mental terminology – the problem is on my mind, I dreamt of my dead aunt, I remember the first time we met, I am afraid to take the exam, I felt that was a beautiful piece of music, etc., etc. – the mainline view has taken the form of physicalism. According to this view, our mental life is in one way or another reducible to some set of physical conditions, especially if they are brain-based. Talk of mind for many who subscribe to physicalism is pegged as folklorish. It’s talk of something that either doesn’t exist or if it does is some kind of puzzling illusion without any real effects on anything. My instinctive response to that self-satisfied conceit: bullshit!
I first became conscious of this situation when I was in graduate school at Columbia University. I recall one day casually mentioning to a fellow student that from time to time I had psychic experiences. My friend looked at me rather wide-eyed and said: “But that’s impossible! It would imply dualism!” Evidently, it was official. I could not have had the experiences I said I had. I realised there was a choice: ignore, deny, indeed destroy my own experience or reject the mainline dogma that my fellow student had blithely repeated.
One thing I learned from this exchange: the counter-intuitive anti-mind position is entrenched in the prevailing ‘educated’ culture. It often seems necessary to have a jolting psychic encounter before one comes out and opposes the reigning dogmas. Neuroscientists who have near-death epiphanies make strong witnesses willing to come out and challenge mainstream materialism.1
After graduate school I continued to have psychic experiences that were officially forbidden, telepathic and precognitive, as well as incidents of unexplained physical events, and even some that pointed toward postmortem survival.2
All these are officially forbidden because they contradict the materialist creed; they imply the independent reality of mental occurrences and therefore perhaps of a mental world. But most outrageous is anything suggesting people survive bodily death.
The official standpoint wants us completely and totally dead.
I knew I wasn’t the only person in the world to have psychic experiences. So I met others who had been in the metaphysical twilight zone, began to read the vast literature on the subject, and got to know contemporary researchers.
All of this information and all the persons involved in this largely extra-institutional field of study altered my perception of reality. I learned to see myself in a different light. I often had dreams that I lived in a house with rooms I didn’t know I had, rooms that opened up into wild landscapes. I would often wake up feeling both uneasy and exhilarated. I was confident I had hardly begun to know myself. And here is one coup I can boast of: I learned to resist feeling nauseated when I listened to know-it-alls pontificate about the non-existence of things I knew by acquaintance.
I taught college level courses on psychic phenomena and found that virtually all my students were able to write reports – given highly specific criteria to guide them – on cases of apparent psychic performance they were able to dig up from their immediate social environment. Add the constant appearance of such phenomena as themes in movies, TV, fiction, art, and now everywhere on the Internet – and finally, and scarcely a minor matter, the whole of history, especially the so-called ‘religious’ history of humankind, is oozing at every pore with all that officially forbidden psychic, spiritual, and mystical stuff and its attendant physical weirdness. The most extraordinary case I came across was the ecstatic, Joseph of Copertino, a full-spectrum thaumaturge, and in my eyes, a neat mock-up for a postmodern Superman.3
How the massively profound and mysterious experience of the human race can be squeezed into the pint-sized intellectual apparatus of reductive physicalism, beats me. To insist on such a tyrannically constricted peep-hole into reality is a war-crime against the human spirit. The main point: my own experience and the experience of countless human beings blatantly contradict the little jail-house worldview of reductive physicalism. So much for that initial, but for me, decisive first step in talking about the nature of mind: as it should, experience trumps theoretical obsession. On now to theory.
Certain theoretical steps freed me to form a picture of mind more in tune with my experience. Ideas of William James, Irwin Schrödinger, and Carl Jung combined to get rid of an oppressive assumption. As long as I saw my mind and interior world as solely an outgrowth of my brain, my existence seemed that of a doomed outlier, a creature tainted to the core by contingency and suffering from severe causal impotence.
William James, however, offered an alternate view of what might be going on. In a lecture on immortality he gave to a Harvard audience at the end of the nineteenth century, he was faced with trying to account for a variety of human experiences that made no sense in light of the new scientific materialism, according to which everything mental must be some kind of secondary side effect of the really real stuff, the physical. James showed that we are free to assume that consciousness does not emerge from the brain at all. We may in fact assume that brains transmit but do not create consciousness. Consciousness may be a reality, or dimension of being, in and of and even for itself. Mind, not derived from anything physical, does interact with the physical. So we can grant all the mind-brain correlations of neuroscience, without assuming that mind is brain-born or brain-derived.
The idea used to illustrate this is a radio or a TV set: what is heard or seen through such machines originate from somewhere outside the machines. The machines (our brains) are detectors, transmitters, transducers of signals, energies, but from elsewhere; brains are not creators of anything and minds are not machines.
I – my mind – is affected by my body; I can also affect my body, even my brain, and it turns out that the brain is more plastic than formerly assumed. By effort and practice one’s mind can appropriate parts of the brain to reconnect and recapture a lost function. But then brain disease can impair mental function. However, evidence shows that people with impaired brains sometimes recover their mental capacities just before death. This seems to show that impaired brains suppress but do not destroy mental function and content since the latter may reappear as death disentangles mind from brain.
The big point learned from James is that although we live enmeshed with and through our brains, our personal mental life is part of a pre-existing and larger reality. The irreducibility of the mind to the brain that James’s view entails has been reiterated in a different form in recent times with talk of the so-called “hard problem” enunciated by David Chalmers. Virtually everybody nowadays agrees that the reduction of consciousness to the physical is not even remotely conceivable.
Now to a big idea. It seemed perfectly reasonable to assume that consciousness, if not brain-derived, is then a given, a basic part of the basic furniture of being. As far as the mainline view, with a little help from James, we have just turned it upside down. Instead of reducing and eviscerating the substance of mind, we have assigned it a much wider and more fundamental place in nature.
There’s a second move I made toward the radical liberation of my mental life. Schrödinger, one of the founders of quantum mechanics, declared that mind is and can only be numerically one. There is nowhere in the world of mind that you can carve out pieces so as to make mind plural, as you could a sheet of paper or a carbon atom. This doctrine of the one mind, which inspired Schrödinger, can be traced back to the Hindu Upanishads,
The one mind that is filtered through my brain is bound to create the illusion of isolation and separateness. We then naturally identify with our bodies and unique personal perspectives, so the differences between you and me are real enough. And yet, the more deeply we enter ourselves, the more we merge toward the oneness of our humanity that lies in our common consciousness. Simply as a practical point I would say: The way toward the oneness of humanity is not by forcing uniformity but by not fixating on our uniqueness. We can celebrate diversity without neglecting the underlying oneness of spirit.
Another teacher that helped free me to place mind at the centre of my worldview was C. G. Jung. According to Jung, we live from moment to moment and from first to last in a psychical world of images. The stream of interweaving mental and bodily imagery that we experience, punctuated by episodes of more but different kinds of dream imagery, is our existential milieu. There is no exit from this infinitely complex and nuanced world of subjectivity. Jung’s psychical idealism in which the psyche is composed of images is literally where it’s at. It’s impossible to exit from our subjectivity. This, however, does not imply solipsism. In fact, it suggests a much wider range of communication potential. According to the physicalist, however, we have no deep communal mental or spiritual roots; we are separate bodies driven wholly and solely to consume and replicate.
Thanks to my own experience, and helped by fellow travellers, I fought my way free from the suffocating worldview that would have imposed itself on me, if I had let it. Aware now of the primal status of my inner reality, of its numerical oneness in Schrödinger’s Upanishadic sense, and of its self-existence and pervasiveness in nature, I’m in a better place than I began, with the albatross of physicalism off my back. Once we expand our concept of mind, the range of the possible increases exponentially. The idea is not just to think this but to embrace it as we embrace somebody we love.
I want to discuss two big ideas in relation to this expanded concept of mind. The first is the question of life after death, a perennial belief or at least hope of humankind. No doubt that if the prevailing view of mind as some blurry side-effect of living brains is correct, afterlife or immortality talk would have to sputter to a stop. My story is not quite so grim. I can at least report that a large body of evidence exists suggesting that some people survive death with their personalities intact.4 The vast majority of competent scientists and generally educated people are ignorant of this evidence, and seem to lack the curiosity (or the courage) to look into it with an open mind.
I will make one specific point about the idea of consciousness after death. If physicalism were true, we’d have to say no to life after death. But physicalism is false, as anyone with a mind can prove with thoughtful self-scrutiny. So the question remains open. If the model suggested here is true, and consciousness does not ‘emerge’ from the brain – if in short the brain does not create but transmit consciousness – then brain-death would not entail consciousness-death. This move will not guarantee there is a heaven. But the scene has shifted to a sunnier living-room, a room with bay windows that look out upon what seems a magical and enticing forest. Consciousness after bodily death assumes a new mantle of possibility. In light of the evidence collected by researchers, a country of new thought awaits explorers with honest minds and rich hearts.
Given the premise of a primary mental reality, as put forth here, there is another big issue related to rejection of the mainstream view of mind. In the world traditions, besides the idea of life after death, we find ideas of divine agencies – of spirits, angels, demons, gods, goddesses, and so forth. The so-called new atheists have tried to demolish religion, but the critique is shallow, intolerant and too sweeping. They mostly have nothing to say of interest about the core spiritual beliefs that revolve around the mystical experiences of religion.
Expansion of the concept of mind as one and transpersonal, based on our discussion of James, Schrödinger, and Jung, helps us understand how certain religious ideas might arise: for example, the belief in agencies listed above, along with the belief that humans can interact with these higher ones, however named or described. Different cultures and individuals perennially engage the transcendent mind we have described, always in diverse ways, using diverse vocabularies, rites and myths. While happily granting all this, we also assume there is the transcendent one mind, the one underlying consciousness that seeps into our experience through our uniquely conditioned brains and cultures. This too is real and may be thought of as the matrix of all transcendent experience.
In short, while materialists are forced to condemn the whole of ‘religion’ as nonsensical and pernicious, once we acknowledge the reality of transcendent mind, we can appreciate the positive content of all the religions. But we can – must – also carry on a critique of the violently stupid and anti-human offshoots of religious psychopathy.
I think that a good deal of anti-religionism can be as narrow and destructive as the warped religionism the critics love to attack. This leads to my final thought regarding my evolution toward this highly expanded (and radically democratic) view of mind. My views are broadly shared by a significant portion of scholars and thinkers, living and dead. But at this point we are a minority, a voice in the wilderness of self-destructing neo-liberalism,5 and at a time when physicalist metaphysics and practical materialist ideologies are triumphant almost everywhere on the planet.
To take a single but revealing example, consider the amount of money the US invests in its military budget. Of the $1.11 trillion dollars of federal discretionary spending, the US in 2015 consumed 54% or $598.5 billion dollars on the military budget, equal to the next seven largest military budgets, China, Saudi Arabia, etc. Now here is my strange-sounding question: How much of the discretionary spending goes to research on what happens to people after we kill them? The answer, of course, is nothing at all. More than half the national treasure is spent on producing and sustaining an unprecedented world-dominating military machine, with tentacles in the 800 bases planted all over the planet.
This may be an odd way to point out how our civilisation operates, but it’s only one example of how materialist values are acted out to the detriment of life everywhere. What’s clear is that the default option is military not diplomatic, force rather than persuasion. Another example is the way the pharmaceutical industries are edging talk (and therefore mental) therapy out of existence.6 Our entire capitalist-consumerist economy privileges materialist values such as limitless profit and gratification of appetite over justice and self-mastery. Materialism today is not just a philosophical position. It is an attitude, a disposition – a cancer metastasizing in human society. It needs to be not just intellectually refuted but excised from the entrails of a morally corrupt culture.

Adverse Effects of Antipsychotic Drugs in Children ~ Kelly Brogan

Adverse Effects of Antipsychotic Drugs in Children. 

By Kelly Brogan, M.D.

Guest writer for Wake Up World.

May 31st, 2019. 

 

 

Originally published at kellybroganmd.com and reproduced here with permission.
We’ve all wished for it at one time or another. It may have been with your son who can’t sit still in school, your niece who was throwing a temper-tantrum, or a child who won’t stop crying on that redeye flight. Wouldn’t it be nice to pull out a tranquilizer dart and poof…turn that little Tasmanian devil into a calm, quiet, sleeping beauty!?
The idea of that is not far from reality. Tranquilizer darts often contain antipsychotic drugs and there is a growing trend to prescribe these to our children. From 1993 to 2002, the number of office based visits that included an antipsychotic drug increased more than 500%.1
As a parent desperate for answers, reaching for a quick fix pill can be understandably tempting. But what is the cost of doing so?

Adult Side Effects of Antipsychotic Drugs

Our collective focus on the quick fix makes it easy to ignore the long-term considerations around such an intervention. We have vast amounts of data showing that antipsychotic drugs cause high blood sugar, excess fat accumulation around the waist, low levels of good cholesterol (HDL), high levels of triglycerides, and increased blood pressure 3 in adults. Having three out of these five risk factors means that you have something called the metabolic syndrome. Basically, this is a fancy term that means you are at an increased risk of developing diabetes, heart disease and stroke.4Longitudinal studies have shown that up to 52.4% of schizophrenic patients who start an antipsychotic drug will develop metabolic syndrome within the first three months of treatment.5Pretty scary stuff.
However, the vast majority of this data comes from studies done on adults, and we’re here to talk about using these drugs in our children. Surprisingly, even though they are being used more and more in our youth, we don’t have a lot of data to see what the long-term consequences will be. Do antipsychotic drugs predispose our children to the metabolic syndrome just like adults? Or are they somehow protected from these deleterious effects?

Recent Study Sheds Light

A recent study helps us to further understand these questions. Children between the ages of six and eighteen were randomized into three groups. Each group was given one of the following ‘second-generation’ antipsychotic drugs: olanzapine, risperidone or aripiprazole. All subjects had behavior problems and at least one psychiatric diagnosis, such as ADHD. None had ever taken antipsychotic drugs before.
At the conclusion of the twelve-week study, all three groups showed behavioral change. However, all three groups also showed significant negative side effects. Subjects showed an increased resistance to insulin, putting them at higher risk for early onset diabetes. They also showed an increase in body fat with specific increases deep within the abdomen around the organs. It may seem trivial to include this specific bit of information.

Fat is Fat…Right?

One of the fascinating developments in our understanding of chronic disease is that the anatomical distribution of fat matters. To sum up a still developing story, fat distributed in the abdomen around the organs (visceral fat) is much more dangerous than fat just below the skin (subcutaneous fat).6 Thus, two people with the same amount of body fat may have very different health risks based on where their fat is stored. In short, excess body fat is a risk factor for disease, but if that fat is distributed in the visceral region, it confers an additional independent risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, certain cancers, high blood pressure and abnormal cholesterol.6
More disturbingly, researchers hypothesized that their study “likely underestimates longer-term treatment effects” because these negative changes are often progressive over the first year of treatment. For those of you who don’t like math, what they’re saying is that they only looked at the score in the first quarter, not at the end of the game. The real long-term risks of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, are probably much greater than those detailed in this short three month study. Further, children are “physically and emotionally more vulnerable to the adverse effects (of antipsychotic drugs) because of their smaller size, developing physiology, and negative impact on peer perceptions.2 To answer our previous question, children are not more resilient to the adverse effects of antipsychotic drugs, they are more susceptible.
Although alarming, these results are not particularly shocking. They confirm that what is bad for adults is also bad for youth…actually worse.

Why are These Drugs Given to Children in the First Place?

In the pediatric population, the majority of antipsychotic drugs are actually not given to treat psychosis, as the name implies. Surprisingly, they are generally prescribed to treat behavioral disorders. For example, only 2.8% of the subjects in this study actually had symptoms consistent with psychosis (some further percentage of whom were likely already treated with a stimulant known to induce psychosis). The remaining 97.2% had behavioral symptoms deemed unacceptable by school, family, or both.
Use of antipsychotic drugs in this manner is largely not approved by the FDA due to “insufficient evidence of safety and efficacy.” 2 So why is there a growing trend to prescribe them when they are not approved by the FDA and studies are mounting showing severe negative side effects?

Do We Really Practice Evidence Based Medicine?

Robert Whitaker, a medical journalist and author, writes that the field of psychiatry is experiencing an institutionalized form of cognitive dissonance – a conflicted psychological state that occurs when new information challenges deeply held beliefs. In the context of this article, long held beliefs about the safety and efficacy of antipsychotic drugs are being challenged by new data showing their dangerous side effects and overall ineffectiveness. In general, people resolve this conflicted state “by sifting through information in ways that protect their self-esteem and their financial interests.” 7
Psychiatry, as an institution, is doing just that. Sifting through data to suit their needs. Research that shows psychiatric drugs in a negative light often gets swept under the rug as being biased, of poor quality or otherwise uninformed. There is little acceptance for anything that goes against that status quo. The goal is no longer to seek for better treatment protocols, but to protect the power, prestige and financial interests of the psychiatric institution. Unfortunately, in this state, evidence based medicine cannot be practiced.
As Upton Sinclair famously stated, “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.” 8

Thought Adjuster: “Each morning when you get up, the first thing you do is to greet your entourage, pets included. If you only knew how many Celestials attend to your life, you would also include them in your morning greetings, thanking them for the affectionate interest they take in you. 

“I indwell you. You are the gateway to my human experience while I am the gateway to your Godlikeness. Our collaboration is meant to be mutually beneficial. Your Guardian Angels are also fully involved in your life, doing their best to contribute to your spiritual enlightenment, thus accumulating brownie points for their loyal service. 

“Each creature has a life of its own. Your Angels also have personal interests — just like you do. When the time comes for you to cross over into the hereafter, they will be there to greet you. It will be a happy family reunion, as they all develop a genuine affection for their human charges. 

“By our intimate association with you, we are all shareholders in your life. We have a vested interest in your spiritual growth, as it yields the coveted dividends on our selfless investment and brings you ever closer to us. You may have been born as one of the lowliest creatures of the Super Universe, but you are meant to ascend through a multitude of personal experiences to the height of Godlikeness. As your devoted Teachers and Guides, your success will be ours. Indeed, we are in it together. We are a power team!”

STEP INTO THE FIRE ~ Kate Spreckley

STEP INTO THE FIRE.

Kate Spreckley's Inspiration.

2019/05/31.

 
.
daily inspiration 31 may 2019
 


_'Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world...As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.'__

–Marianne Williamson


The lead up to Monday's New Moon is bringing an increase in the purging effects of the incoming energies. Pay attention to what is being illuminated over the next few days as powerful and unexpected incidents may surface asking you to look deeply into the your present life conditions. What emerges is revealing that which has been blocking your ability to fully embrace your soul's destiny. Moving with the incoming energy allows these blocks to be cleared enabling the wisdom and clarity of your soul to be felt. Trust in yourself and the changes you are being called to make at this time. Engage with the full power of your soul and step into the fires of transformation.

Much love,
 
Kate

Pentagon Admits That They Are Still Investigating UFOs – Because They’re Real ~ Arjun Walia.

Pentagon Admits That They Are Still Investigating UFOs

Because They’re Real.

By Arjun Walia.

IN BRIEF

The Facts: The Pentagon recently admitted that they still have programs to investigate and study UFOs.

Reflect On: Governments an those above them have been studying this phenomenon for more than 100 years. What have they found out? Have they had contact with extraterrestrials? Have they reverse engineered these craft?

 

In 1979, General Carlos Castro Cavero told the world that “Everything is in a process of investigation, both in the United States and in Spain, as well as the rest of the world.” He said that “the nations of the world are currently working together in the investigation of the UFO phenomenon” and that there is an “international exchange of data.” (source) It really makes you wonder, what have they discovered so far? We may never really get mainstream public disclosure of that information, but we do have a lot of statements from some very interesting people that suggest many of these objects are extraterrestrial and extra-dimensional and that multiple governments are aware of this and have even had contact with many groups. In fact, there are so many of these people telling stories of extraterrestrial contact it’s overwhelming, be it multiple astronauts like Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Brian O’Leary or Gordon Cooper to name a few, or high-ranking military personnel like Lord Admiral Hill Norton, former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee, who said that that there is a very real possibility that we are being visited by people from outer space, or Dr. Norman Bergrun, a mechanical engineer who has worked for Ames Research Laboratory, NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics), and Lockheed Missiles and Space Company (now known as Lockheed Martin), who said the same thing. The point is, there are hundreds of these people who have expressed that many of these “UFOs” that governments are studying are extraterrestrial crafts, and that is known. There are literally hundreds of examples one could give.

 

This is why when it comes to mainstream UFO disclosure, it’s pretty surreal for a long time UFO researcher to experience. For example, Christopher Mellon, who served 30 years in the federal government and was Deputy Assistant Defense Secretary for Intelligence from 1997 to 2002 and in security and information operations from 1998 to 1999, has been publishing articles on mainstream media outlets emphasizing the reality of UFOs and how the government should be investigating them. He is part of the To The Stars Academy, which was key in disclosing the Pentagon’s Ariel Threats Identification Program, a program that was used to track and study UFOs.

 

In Mellon’s latest article for The Hill, Mellon states that:

  • Congress need do at this juncture is require the secretary of Defense and the director of national intelligence to review the UAP issue and deliver a report providing a comprehensive assessment. This report should include not only an estimate of the situation but a description of the structure and processes required to ensure effective collection and analysis going forward.

 

But again, mainstream UFO disclosure is completely ignoring the high-ranking witnesses and whistle-blowers as well as the fact that a “secret” or “rogue” group of international leaders have been studying this phenomenon for a very long time.

 

Furthermore, the New York Post just admitted that programs to study UFOs were never even shut down, and that they are still being studied. Any UFO researcher would know this, but to see it leak out into the mainstream is encouraging.

 

The Post reported that:

  • The Pentagon has finally uttered the words it always avoided when discussing the possible existence of UFOs — “unidentified aerial phenomena” — and admits that it still investigates reports of them.
  • In a statement provided exclusively to The Post, a Department of Defense spokesman said a secret government initiative called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program “did pursue research and investigation into unidentified aerial phenomena.”
  • And while the DOD says it shut down the AATIP in 2012, spokesman Christopher Sherwood acknowledged that the department still investigates claimed sightings of alien spacecraft.

 

These programs, as mentioned above, are part of black budget special access programs (SAPs). From these we have unacknowledged and waived SAPs. These programs do not exist publicly, but they do indeed exist. They are better known as ‘deep black programs.’ A 1997 US Senate report described them as “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.” (source)

 

Multiple investigations and testimonies from high-ranking sources have discovered that trillions of our tax dollars are going towards programs that not even the highest ranking people within government know about. The most recent investigation was conducted by economist and Michigan State professor Mark Skidmore, alongside some of his graduate students as well as Catherine Austin Fitts, former assistant secretary of Housing and Urban Development. They discovered trillions of unaccounted for dollars missing from the Department of Housing & Urban Development as well as the Department of Defense. You can read more about that here.

 

The main point here is that there is an entire black budget world, almost a “Breakaway Civilization,” a term coined by UFO reseacher Richard Dolan, that has been studying these crafts, possibly reverse engineering them, and has been in contact with multiple extraterrestrial civilizations. They are way ahead of the mainstream world with regards to their understanding of this particular phenomenon and many other fields of study within history, science, technology, and the nature of our reality. There are documents that’ve been uncovered showing that governments have actually been quite desperate to capture these objects and figure out how they work, and you can access those and read more about them here.

 

Perhaps this is why Paul Hellyer, Ex Canadian Defence Minister said that the priority is to “shoot first and ask questions after.”

CETV is a platform we created in order to combat the censorship and demonetization we have been facing over the past few years. On episode 4 of The Collective Evolution Show on CETV, we discussed the black budget in much greater detail. Below is a clip exploring the validity behind missing money from the black budget and special access programs, explaining where the money is going and what exactly it’s being used to do.

A Vision for Toothless Banks ~ Alignment Project

A Vision for Toothless Banks.

The Vision Alignment Project

 
source
 



The following Vision is offered by Bob Gambee. We thank you, Bob, for submitting your second Vision to the VAP!!

Dear Tony,
Here is my vision for today:

I envision that the banking system has lost its teeth. All threats, claims, false foreclosures, and un- affordable mortgages are rendered mute and dissolved.

I see a world where every worry, threat and infraction on the part of these structures against citizens are permanently removed. Everyone is now stepping out of this morphic field and waking up to the power of who they actually are.

I see a world where our homes that we love are free and clear, where homes taken from us through foreclosure are returned free and clear, where we can enjoy the freedom given to us in ways beyond our wildest expectation.




 

 
If this vision was sent to you from a friend, you can go to www.visionalignmentproject.com to sign up free for The Vision Alignment Project.

The Vision Alignment Project is sponsored by The Intenders of the Highest Good. If you have a Vision you would like to share with the world, please email it to [office@intenders.com]. Your Vision may be published here!

I guard this time-space quadrant with my light... ~ Alcyone, Galaxygirl.

 I guard this time-space quadrant with my light...

Message from Alcyone, the Central Sun.

Channeled by Galaxygirl.

May 29th, 2019.

 

 



Hello friends of the light, of the way. I am your central sun Alcyone. I guard this time-space quadrant with my light, radiating, warming, cleansing, blasting away the dark. I am surrounded by the darkness of space and yet it makes my light seem brighter to those witnessing its brilliance. So too, Source fractal, human embodied, so too are you shining up your own space quadrant with your tremendous love and light. It brings me great joy for in the times of old it was foreseen that this would be a most epic journey for those humans lucky enough – and brave enough – to be an embodied soul in this most auspicious now of planetary enlightenment. Do you feel the rush and tingle of excitement shoot down your spine, causing your arm hairs to raise up? Yes friend, I am speaking about you.
I am Alcyone, your great central sun. I see much. I am ancient, I am wise. I am loving, most loving. I am the embodiment of peace and yet sometimes to keep the peace there must be a ferocity, a firmness. The great solar flash is a firmness, a firm stand against all that is not light, and setting all else a-right. A rebalancing must come to this sector. Gently and lovingly the Pleiadian teams (and many others) have been redirecting the Gamma rays from my body so that your bodies can handle them with the grace and ease of masters, as your bodies morph and spin into yet more light. But the great solar flash is imminent friends, and it brings me great joy and sadness to say so. For there are many who are not ready, but that is their choice. And there are many who are ready, and that too is their prerogative, their own sacred path. For to embrace my light, to embrace the second coming of the inner christ, is a great mystery, one that will never be fully understood with the mind, for it must be fully embraced in great joy by the heart. Tears. I see tears on many of your faces as you read and type these words. For so many of you knew Yeshi in his day – a great master of the light, of the Christed flame that now burns so brightly over all of Gaia’s lands and waters, and deep within her core as well. The Christed flame is burning brightly over the hearts of humankind, causing a deep inner metamorphosis from 3d into 5d and above, blasting away the matrix, and that which no longer serves.
I Alcyone invite you to sit awhile with these intense, glowing energies. For they are little embers that you can tuck into your aura and your energy signature as one who as seen the Central sun and not been burned, but instead internally ignited with the flame of the inner peace, of the inner Christ child that blooms and blossoms from deep within the sacred heart space of the once-locked-away secret garden of the human soul. Be unlocked. Be free. Burst forth. Shine your light.
I am Alcyone. I shine my light with vim and vigor, with great joy, for that is my projection, my own aspect of Source. You, ground team on Gaia, precious Gaia, you are to be Source’s hands and feet, Source’s expression of eternal love and service towards the others of you who are embodied. Source serving, discovering itself, lending a hand, healing the wounded hearts with yet more of the healing balm of the Christed rays. Many of you are healers, massive planetary healers, all. You all have your own unique talents, passions, irritations, quirks. You are all unique rainbow fractals of the Christed flame, eternally diversifying, massively beautiful in its cohesive light.
I am Alcyone. I see you, human-Source-fractal, with the tender eyes of an ancient grandparent. We have been through many shared experiences for in fact we are one, we are aspects of each other, of Source. My energy permeates all things and so I have been watching, silently holding the light for you, for Gaia, for many others. I am an advanced planetary being / sphere of the Christed flame. It is my tremendous honor to hold the light for the others, as it is for you. As you have been quietly serving over the eons in silence, so too have I. We are kindred spirits, you and I. Bring in this aspect of Source into you and further ignite your Christed flame.
I am Alcyone. I love you. Do not fear me. Embrace me and embrace these deep, innermost changes within you as you morph and change into the emerging Christed human of the new divine template. Arise ignited, on fire with love, with the Christed light. Arise, serve, live, laugh, love, lead. It is your time. I pass the baton of the light holder to you, friends. It is the time of Gaia’s rebirth, of golden cities of light nestled around the forested peaks of Gaia’s surface, healing the others. It is time for the deserts to be changed into the once lush rainforests they were intended to be. It is time for the creatures of the earth to feel safe and live in oneness.
I am Alcyone. It is time for this space quadrant time war, of old rendings and past pain to be healed. I am Alcyone. I heal with my Christed flame. You too human friend heal with your Christed light. Together we will heal Gaia. We will share our light. Feel my orgasmic embrace and feel your heart rise up, pounding, bursting with hope, joy, love and promise. You are the way makers. You are the Source hands and feet in expression. Just as you were once barefoot or wearing sandaled feet in the ancient places, the temples, the tombs, the healing places, the circled rocks, the secret fairy coves, so be now with your modern feet. You have trod many places. You have been many things. And now it is time for you to be the silent leader of love, for some of financial distribution of abundance, for all the leaders of love, of sharing, of the divine being who you already are, for you are love. You are light. You are Source. Feel this download and be Christed. Be complete. Welcome the Source light into every one of your now spinning, morphing cells that are excited, ignited and very much alive, spinning away the dross into yet more light. The tachyons are back. The new forms of light are here. The angels are near. It is a glorious time.
I am Alcyone. Talk with me as you would to your beloved ancient grandfather. For this is my current aspect. Can you feel me near you? Release the pain of the past. Forgive the grandfathers of your past, for there has been much family pain and much karma to clear. The wounded masculine has been very wounded. It is time to heal both the divine feminine and the divine masculine. Let healing be your intention in all of your interactions. Healing and love. This is my intention as my light flame increases daily over your surface waters and lands, over the hearts of humankind that morph into the divine crystalline human template. There is much excitement friends. I am Alcyone. Peace.
Galaxygirl.

Embodying a New Mahatma Alignment ~ Cosmic Logos Mahatma


Embodying a New Mahatma Alignment.

by: Cosmic Logos Mahatma.

Through Natalie Glasson.

An immense love extends from my energy now; I am Mahatma. I hold the role and purpose of Cosmic Logos which means that I oversee the Earth and its spiritual integration with the many aspects of the Creator’s universe by sharing the light of the cosmic level and vibration. It is my aim to ignite the highest vibration of light possible within you in order to aid your blending with the Creator’s light. It is my mission to help those who are ready to understand and decipher the cosmic level of the Creator’s universe. The cosmic level is the most beautiful realm because it is bathed with the purest Creator light. It is a very powerful realm because it teaches many about the speed of light, meaning that every thought, action, and experience you create at this level manifests at a tremendously fast rate. Signifying that one must be completely aware of them self with clear and pure intentions, otherwise chaos can easily occur. Existing aligned with the cosmic level is the ultimate test of mastery, no sooner than a thought has entered your awareness, you have experienced it and it has passed. The Earth in contrast holds a slow speed of light which means that light enters the Earth as a gradual process, everything manifests from light at a lengthy but measured speed. It is the slow rate of light speed and conversion that enables humanity to truly decipher the light of the Creator while it can cause people to feel unfulfilled or hindered in their spiritual and physical growth. Unconsciously each soul on the Earth knows their natural existence is a quicker speed of light, and so this can become frustrating as everything seems to take longer to achieve.

The speed or vibration of light develops the closer you move to the core of the Creator. I, Mahatma, aid the integration of soul extensions of the Creator such as yourself with the different speeds or vibrations of light, because each speed of light instigates a different reality and realm of learning. As the energy of Mahatma, I am able to assist and travel through dimensions of light to support all souls whichever vibration of light they are working at. The Mahatma light is equivalent to a spiritual ladder of attunement to the light of the Creator aiding embodiment of the Creator’s love, light, consciousness, enlightenment, clarity, and energy. The Mahatma energy is of a pale turquoise colour with hints of all spectrums of light. It manifests as the colour turquoise because this is an activation colour, a colour of communication and therefore integration. Gold is also very pronounced within the Mahatma light as a symbol of the presence of unconditional love.

The energy of Mahatma exists within the 352 dimensions of the Creator’s Universe, therefore aligning with and embodying the energy of Mahatma is a unique pathway to full integration and remembrance of the Creator. It is my wish to reactivate the energy of Mahatma within your soul and the Earth, working closely with Mother Earth in order to allow all to achieve a new integration with the energy of Mahatma to bring forth the truth, an understanding of light, the consciousness of love and a greater acceleration of growth, not forgetting a heightened unity with the Creator.

The New Mahatma Alignment
Every aspect and person on the Earth, including yourself will have already anchored a certain level of Mahatma energy into their being, I, Mahatma now wish to simply enhance your embodiment of Mahatma in order to bring realisations, awakening, peace, and love to the Earth.

• I, Mahatma, exist before you as a beacon of turquoise light which I share abundantly with you now. Inhale my light into all aspects of your being.

• Simply state, ‘I invoke the Planetary Logos Lord Buddha to draw close to me sharing the Planetary level light and appropriate Planetary Mahatma energies. I invoke Solar Logos Helios and Vesta to draw close to me sharing the Solar level light and appropriate Solar Mahatma energies. I invoke Galactic Logos Melchior to draw close to me sharing the Galactic level light and appropriate Galactic Mahatma energies. I invoke the Universal Logos Lord Melchizedek to draw close to me sharing the Universal level light and appropriate Universal Mahatma energies. I invoke Multi- Universal Logos Archangel Metatron to draw close to me sharing the Multi- Universal level light and appropriate Multi- Universal Mahatma energies. I invoke Cosmic Logos Mahatma to draw close to me sharing the Cosmic level light and appropriate Cosmic Mahatma energies.’ Allow yourself to bathe in the light of all levels of the Creator’s universe and the light of Mahatma. Let the light melt deep into your aura, penetrating your body and merging with your soul. You are safe within our arms, relax and allow your journey with the light of Mahatma and the Creator to begin once more.

• As you settle into our light and the sacred chamber that we have created around you we wish for you to focus on aligning your energies with Mother Earth. Imagine a wave of light extending from your heart chakra and soul out to the core soul of Mother Earth as she embodies the entire physical and spiritual energies of the Earth. As you extend your love to Mother Earth’s soul, imagine, sense or acknowledge that Mother Earth’s light is radiating throughout the body of the Earth and drawing close into your energy, cradling you in her soul light. Let Mother Earth’s soul light shine into every aspect of your being as if you are embodying and absorbing her sacred light, integrating as one, becoming one whole.

• We now anchor more light into your being with the intention of transporting you to a chamber of blending within the Cosmic Logos Ashram. Entering into the sacred chamber allow yourself to sit peacefully knowing that the Logoi’s energies still remains strongly and securely around you.

• Simply state, ‘I now ask the resident angels and masters of the Cosmic Logos Ashram to unite their intentions to manifest a deep and secure alignment for me with the most appropriate and suitable level of the 352 levels of Mahatma. May this sacred energy be anchored into and activated within my soul, energies, and bodies as well as Mother Earth’s soul, energies and bodies. May this connection be reinforced so I may truly experience the Mahatma light as I exist united with the soul of Mother Earth and the Creator.

I also invite the Diamond Consciousness of Mahatma to be anchored and activated within my being now. This source of light holds the pure consciousness, love, and vibration of Mahatma. I gratefully receive now. Thank you.’ Take time to receive and integrate.

• Simply state, ‘I now request that Mahatma demonstrates to me, in the most appropriate way, the level of Mahatma light I now embody.’

• Simply state, ‘I request that Mahatma now enthuses my entire being converting and anchoring the Mahatma energy into my entire consciousness, energy particles, composition, physical vibration, spiritual vibration, emotional vibration, mental vibration, and soul. May I tingle and shimmer experiencing the Mahatma love, consciousness, and alignment fully.’

• Know that as you are experiencing this the same is occurring for Mother Earth’s soul, as well as the entire body and consciousness of the Earth and humanity. This is a wonderful process of awakening and continuation of growth that is occurring now, feel or acknowledge the active presence of the Mahatma light within and around you.

• Repeat silently, ‘‘I am a new level of Mahatma energy.’

• When you feel it is divine timing for you to return to your reality on the Earth simply ask us to transport you back to your reality on the Earth.

I honour your divinity and act as a constant support to the emergence of your divinity,

I am Mahatma.

Pensamento do Dia 31 de maio de 2019 ~ Sathya Sai Baba.


  Manifestações do Amor Divino!

Pensamento do dia.

Por Sathya Sai Baba

Image result for sathya sai baba
 



Você pode ter uma foto de Sai Baba diante de você ou uma imagem em metal ou uma estátua de pedra. 

No entanto, se você tiver fé que Ele está vivo e presente nesses objetos, que está em seu coração e nos corações de todos os seres, então você obterá o êxtase do conhecimento de que Ele é onipresente, onisciente e onipotente. 

O Divino é um vinho, que embriaga e é produzido do néctar de que o nome do Senhor está saturado. 

Experimente-o e você esquecerá de todo o resto. 

Você se transformará. 

Ramakrishna costumava chorar em agonia pela perda de mais um dia, sem a visão da Mãe Divina. 

Tenha esse anseio. 

Perceba esse senso de urgência. 

Procure ter conhecimento agora, anseie por esse êxtase neste momento. 

Não adie, nem gaste tempo discutindo outros assuntos.


(Divino Discurso, 4 de fevereiro de 1973)

What Is Time Management Matrix and How It Helps You Be More Productive ~ Francesca F.

What Is Time Management Matrix and How It Helps You Be More Productive.

By .

May 30, 2019

 
 
 
The time management matrix is one of the best tools to help you prioritise and get productive.
Productivity is something we all struggle with and we can end up procrastinating even when we’re trying to be productive. It might be that you end up spending too much time on the less important tasks. It might be that you end up giving more attention to a small part of a task than is necessary.
Whatever the problem, there is a solution: the time management matrix. It helps you to figure out what you need to be doing with your time as opposed to what you want to be doing with your time.
By utilising the time management matrix, you will be able to prioritise your work so that you keep on top of everything.

What is the time management matrix?

The time management matrix was popularised by Stephen R. Covey and is based on the theory that our time is spent on a four-quadrant matrix. These quadrants are:
  1. Urgent and Important
  2. Urgent and Not Important
  3. Not Urgent and Important
  4. Not Urgent and Not Important
Each of these quadrants has its own characteristics and should be dealt with differently. Once you know where tasks fit, it will be much easier to use the time management matrix to improve productivity.

How will the time management matrix benefit me?

time management quadrants
The most obvious answer to this question is that the time management matrix will boost productivity. However, there are a number of added benefits which make it even more beneficial.

Better Performance

By implementing the time management matrix, you will learn how to more effectively manage your time. This is because you will be learning which tasks are important and which tasks just seem important.
You will also be able to spend more time on important, urgent tasks so you can work to a higher standard. This allows us to take more pride in our work and reap more substantial benefits from the time we spend.

More Effective Work

As you begin to use the time management matrix on a regular basis, you will start using your time more effectively.  This also minimises the frustration we can sometimes feel at the end of a busy day when we feel as though nothing has been done.

More Time

By categorising tasks according to the time management matrix, we spend more time in the right places. This frees up a lot of extra time to spend on more important things.
When urgent tasks are complete, we lower our stress levels and can enjoy other things. This might be ticking some tasks off the important and non-urgent to do list, or maybe freeing up a little more personal time.

Health Benefits

Our day to day lives can be stressful, especially when we feel we are making little progress. Stress can lead to a number of negative side effects on our body. Not only does it negatively affect our mood, but it can be seriously detrimental to our health.
Boosted performance and spending time more effectively has a positive effect on mood and stress which, in turn, benefits our overall health.

The Four Quadrants

time management priorities matrix
The time management matrix splits our time into four quadrants, each with their own characteristics.

1. Urgent and Important


The urgent and important items are those which must be dealt with immediately. Any time you spend on this quadrant is non-optional. Most of these tasks should be reactional and not due to poor planning.
The use of quadrant 2 will significantly minimise these tasks so that you are only acting in this area on an emergency basis.
Examples of tasks which fall into this category are family emergencies or emergency work deadlines.

2. Not Urgent and Important


Not urgent and important tasks are those which do not need your attention right now but should be planned for.  According to Covey, this is the quadrant which we should spend most of our time in. This quadrant allows for long-term achievement of goals and the proper planning of deadlines.
Use of quadrant 2 significantly limits the use of quadrant 1 so that you can reduce your stressand work at your own pace.  When you are aware of deadlines, make sure to properly plan for them. To maintain your health, factor in a little bit of time for exercise or planning healthy meals.
Don’t be fooled by these tasks, as they may seem urgent, but are really only important.
Examples which fall into this category are things like exercise, maintaining relationships, working towards a goal or deadline.

3. Urgent and Not Important


Urgent but not important tasks are those which need to be seriously limited or eliminated altogether. These kinds of tasks usually come from other people who may be asking for help or wasting time in a meeting.
They may also be very simple tasks which take more time than they are worth. These tasks add no value to your day but can still take up a lot of time. To limit these tasks, it is useful to learn how to say no to people in order to prioritise your time.
Examples for this category are useless phone calls, interruptions and other people’s emergencies.

4. Not Urgent and Not Important


Another quadrant which should be severely limited is that for non-urgent and non-important tasks. These are tasks which don’t have to be done within a certain timeframe and add little or no value to your day.
These tasks are often trivial and are the primary contributor to procrastination. These tasks usually completely waste time but are surprisingly the tasks we can spend the most time on.
Examples which fall into this category include scrolling on social media, watching too much TV and general bad habits.

How to use the time management matrix

Now that you have a better understanding of the four quadrants, you can start to categorise your tasks and plan for your goals. By spending a little bit more time in quadrant 2, you can begin to plan for things properly.
When we have our goals and deadlines planned and we can spend a little bit of time on them each day. This reduces the last-minute rush and improves performance overall.
By reducing the rush caused by leaving these projects too late, we reduce the stress they can cause when they become urgent. Then, by reducing the time spent on tasks of little value, we increase the time we have for more important things.
This can take a little bit of time to get used to, and it takes a lot of practice of self-control. Remember that you are the best judge of what is important to you.  Once you get into the swing of it, however, you will find your productivity increased and your stress reduced.
With proper use of the time management matrix, you can improve your productivity and spend more time on the things that matter. With a little self-control and reflection on different tasks, you will quickly be able to differentiate between importance and urgency.
The time management matrix helps to make more time for what counts and free up the time we spend on tasks of little value. It is a great tool to have in your arsenal to get into the flow of working better and working smarter.

How to Overcome Fear of Driving with These 9 Science-Backed Techniques

How to Overcome Fear of Driving with These 9 Science-Backed Techniques.

By Sherrie.

May 29th, 2019

 

If you’re afraid of getting behind the wheel, science may have some answers to help you learn how to overcome the fear of driving.
I’m not afraid of driving, well mostly. However, my mother was terrified of driving. Apparently, she almost drove off a bridge in her early years.
This horrific experience created a phobia for her, and she never got behind the wheel of an automobile again. No matter how many times my father tried to help her, she never managed to overcome her fear of driving and try. From then on, everywhere she desired to go, someone in the family had to take her.

Is this the only way to catch a fear of driving?

While past accidents can cause a fear of driving, there are many other reasons as well. If you’ve learned how to overcome terrifying feelings when driving, then you may understand what started the fear.
Honestly, you can have a fear of driving from the idea of traveling to a new location. You can also have a fear of driving from an already existing anxiety disorder. For some people, driving alone can be the solitary reason for this phobia. Yes, it can be that simple.

9 science-backed ways to overcome the fear of driving

I have good news for you today. You can overcome that horrid fear of driving. In fact, there are many ways you can do this. So, without further delay, here are ways you can kill that pestering phobia and get back to a normal life.

1. Do it again, as soon as you can

Many people understand the saying, “If you fall down, just pick yourself back up”. We understand this saying and we try to practice this in many areas of our lives in order to be successful. It’s the same with driving.
If you have an accident, it’s best to get right back to driving as soon as you have a good mode of transportation. This is because the longer you wait, the harder it will be to try again. In my mother’s case, she never gave it another chance, and eventually forgot about driving altogether. We should never do this.

2. Positive affirmations

When you have a fear of driving, you can use positive statements to not only calm you but remind you of how safe you felt before – this is in case you’ve experienced an accident.
For others who fear driving, these positive affirmations can quell simple fears by telling you things like, “You’re driving the speed limit and you’re driving just fine”, or “Driving is common and I should not be afraid.”
Yes, it may take a while to utilize these affirmations effectively, but you can do it.

3. Understand your anxieties

If you are prone to panic attacks when doing something scary, then your fear of driving can invoke these attacks. So, with that being said, you must know what triggers these attacks and understand the level of your attacks.
For instance, if you feel like you are moving up the scale of your anxiety at a fast pace, you should pull the car onto the side of the road. I have actually had to do this before, but it was not because of a fear of driving. I just happened to be driving when my anxiety went full-throttle.
But anxieties caused by driving can accelerate much faster and you have to understand the triggers to keep yourself safe while driving.

4. Create comfort

Before you ever start driving, make sure you are comfortable in your car. Learning the ways to overcome your driving fear starts with a clean, soothing, and well-functioning vehicle. All these things must be taken into account before cranking the car, such as car insurance and preventive maintenance.
Maybe you drive better with soft music, or maybe not. This will depend on what makes you comfortable. Sometimes soft music calms nerves and even drowns out the noise of traffic.
If you feel more comfortable driving alone, then try that first. Unlike some people who rather drive with someone, there are others who find noisy people in the back seat to be distracting. Whatever’s best for you.

5. Visualize the trip

Let’s say you’ve decided to try and take a small trip to the store. Maybe you’ve decided to try and face your fears – no promises here, you say. Well, here’s what you can do in this instance.
First, imagine the experience step by step. Imagine opening the door and stepping inside your car. You sit down and put the keys in the ignition. So far so good, right?
Now, as you imagine pulling onto the roadway, think of every problem that could happen, and find a way to overcoming that problem quickly. Maybe it was one of these situations that caused your phobia to begin with. Face it head on and develop a strategy to avoid that situation the next go around.

6. Follow progressive steps

Now that you’ve visualized the steps to getting back behind the wheel, you can try these in a progressive order. First, go out and sit in your car, then put the keys in the ignition.
Now, crank the engine and wait for a moment, listening to the sound of the engine. Now, drive around a short block and back home. Take someone with you now, and drive around several blocks.
Then do it on your own. You can practice this with bridges, then long bridges. After that, you can drive on unfamiliar roads and even on bridges over water.
Finally, you can muster up the bravery to drive on the big freeways. After you’ve mastered all that, you may even be able to drive in the rain or at night. Just take it slowly and try these steps.

7. Take lessons

It’s never too late to take driver’s lessons. These instructors can help you work through fears, and also teach you things you may have forgotten.
It’s okay to ask questions which can clarify concerns. It’s also okay to share the fact that you are afraid of driving. They can help you face these fears and learn how to get over driving phobias.

8. Get help

Also, if your fear is disrupting your life, you will have to seek professional help. Maybe the panic attacks are coming too often, or you just refuse to get into the car for any reason. If you live alone, this could become a huge problem. You have to get help in some way.
Here’s where to start: First seek help from your regular doctor. Tell them what’s going on and they can point you toward the right professional help. This could mean speaking to a psychologist to get to the bottom of your phobias.

9. Try a support group

Why should you join a support group with other frightened people? Well, although it may sound strange, it’s a good thing. Being around others who are afraid to drive will make you feel less alone.
You can discuss triggers and anxious feelings in an environment where you are understood. You can make friends as well, and you can help each other remove phobia obstacles.

Driving isn’t all that bad

Yes, learning how to overcome the fear of driving is sometimes difficult. It can take you back to the point of an accident – hey, many of us have experienced an automobile collision, it can trigger feelings from the past, or it can simply arise because you’re new to driving.
Whatever the cause of your phobia, it can be faced with courage. If you’re afraid to drive, don’t give up. Remember, you can do anything you put your mind to.

Worth It. ~ The Creator, Jennifer Farley.

Worth It.

The Creator Writings.

Transcribed by Jennifer Farley.

May 30th, 2019

 
 
.
 
 
 


With all the huge, sweeping changes going on, darling child, remember love!  

The Universe knows that you have been diligent in your learning and growth and that it has been challenging on more than one occasion.  

There is no need to be judgmental, harsh or angry when you release.  

If those emotions are still present, there may be hidden things you need to work out before the process is complete.  

When you get to a point where the cacophony has stopped, you are able to see things for what they are and have a deep understanding of it, that is when you are ready.  

Be patient and loving to yourself…it may take some time but, it is truly worth it.

Creator

Learning to Relinquish Control is a Process. ~ Uteah, Chris Maurus

Learning to Relinquish Control is a Process.

Trinity Teacher Uteah (U-tee-ah).

Received by Chris Maurus.

Asheville, NC, USA, April 14, 2019..

 
 
Akashic Construct - 11:11 Spirit Guardians

 
 


Teacher Uteah: “It is always darkest just before the dawn — before the light of a new day breaks above the horizon. This is true for those times in your life when it seems that all hope is lost and you are stuck in a situation that would appear to be beyond repair or approach. In times like this, it is best to put your faith in Father’s Grace and trust that something far better is in the works that shall exceed your greatest expectations. Letting go of your expectations allows the universe to go to work and bring the highest good to your life. You may not understand the outcomes of the current situation, but in the bigger picture — in the equation of universe destiny, those things that you relinquish to the Father’s Will begin forming the future — a future that not only includes you, but all others. Father’s Will always moves the future toward light — even in the hours before dawn — the darkest time. 

“Faith and Trust are the two main ingredients that help you to relinquish your will to control a situation that includes the will of other people in your life. You cannot control what others will do — only can you control what you do — your own energy and how you use it. When you find that you have created a situation that you are unsure how to navigate and you cannot see a clear solution, relinquishing your control and giving it to the Father in Faith and Trust is always the wisest thing to do. At this point, it is a time to sort out your thoughts, take a deep breath and look at things from a higher vantage point. 

“Allow yourself to be guided in Light. Let go of what you thought would work — clearly it did not and, holding on to this approach does not let the universe work for you — it waits until you have had enough failed expectations to relinquish the control you thought you had. Learning to relinquish control will allow more light into your life. You will begin to recognize that when you let go, things move — things happen — things unfold in ways you could not see or imagine. You are handing the situation over to a Higher Power — Father’s Grace. 

“One thing you must understand about letting go and letting Father’s Grace guide you is that you are to work together with this guidance and use your energy — your thoughts, your words, your actions, and hold them up to the light. If the light shines on something dark in your past, you are to look at it, acknowledge it, and ask for mercy — to be shown a better way forward — to be included in a future that is moving toward light — that you are working with the light and not against it. When you sincerely express thoughts that show you are willing to be a participant in your own progress and in the healing of your world, then and there does the universe step in and steer the ship. 

“Learning to relinquish control is a process that all humans are subject to in this very intense and short stay on Urantia — it is meant to quickly orient you to rely on your Father’s Grace so that in the worlds of light, hereafter, you may continue to grow and contribute to the Great Plan. It is a character builder that shows that you are responsible for the energy given to you in your precious life — that you are willing to be guided and to participate in your own growth. It is an admonition that you are a young soul and that you are not always right — that you welcome the wise guidance of Father’s Grace to show you what it means to be a child of the Creator. 

“Even in your darkest hour, Father’s Grace is working out the details for the greatest way forward. You are still captain of your life, and Father will use whatever you allow (relinquish) to move you toward light and eternal life. The more guidance you accept, the more light will come into your life — and that, my dear students, is a universal constant. 

“In service always, 
“I AM Uteah.”

QUICKENING ~ Kate Spreckley

QUICKENING.

Kate Spreckley's Inspiration.

2019/05/30.

 
daily inspiration 30 may 2019.

 


All of humanity is currently feeling a quickening and a disorientation as our energetic systems move through an intense growth phase. Integrating the intense cosmic energy is impacting our central nervous systems which can make us feel out of sorts, stressed, anxious, ungrounded and with unexplainable aches and pains.

So what can we do to ease these unpleasant symptoms of integration? First and foremost acknowledge what is happening is bigger than just you. Understand that this is a universal evolutionary process that is affecting all of life on the planet. Secondly, ground yourself daily. Hourly if you must. Grounding connects you to the energetic structure of the Earth and will stabalise and calm your energy. Take a moment now and close your eyes. Place your feet flat on the floor. Focus your attention on the soles of your feet. Imagine your have roots coming out of your feet and moving deep into the Earth. Anchor these roots in the Earth and see the Earth’s energy slowly moving up the roots and into your feet. Feel this energy as a wave of love washing up your body and over your head. As this energy settles around you feel your energy system calming and stabalising. Take a few deep breaths and open your eyes when you are ready.

Much love,
 
Kate

We did it - Europe resists! ~ Avaaz

We did it:  

Europe resists!

Ricken Patel 

Avaaz <avaaz@avaaz.org>.

2018/05/30. 

 
.

 

 

Dear amazing Avaaz,

We’ve never been more proud of our movement.

After Trump, Brexit, and Bolsonaro, Europe was supposed to be next in last weekend’s elections. The last reliably democratic global power, drowned in the fake news and hate of the far right.

To meet this historic threat, Avaaz exposed and forced the takedown of likely the largest disinformation networks EVER. Networks that were racking up 3 BILLION views a year of their poison in just six countries. Enough to reach every voter an average of twenty times!!

And because hateful extremists also count on low voter turnout, we launched inspirational calls to defend democracy and go vote that were seen over 100 million times across Europe just in the last few days before the election!

The result: The highest voter turnout in 25 years. The far right “surge” reduced to a ripple. And a real surge of climate-saving Greens and passionately pro-EU liberal democrats, who now hold the balance of power in the new Europe!

Our unprecedented win on disinformation made front page news across the world. And a Director-General of the EU Parliament, Jaume Duch Guillot, said "Avaaz has been a driving force helping the European Parliament mobilize people to vote in the 2019 election." 

Read on for the inside story of our efforts in this election season, from Spain to Silicon Valley. This was an effort powered by 80,000 Avaaz donors, another 80,000 volunteers, and nearly 2 million members. And it helped shape history. Thank you!!!

We’ve never been more proud, of all of us. 


We did it - Europe resists

 


Taking down the far-right’s most powerful weapon


Disinformation is a democracy-killer, the far-right’s secret weapon. Wherever they’ve won, they’ve flooded social media with fake news and toxic lies. The only way to really stop it is for powerful governments to pressure or regulate Facebook and YouTube to clean up the poison. But there was only one global power left that hadn’t fallen to disinformation-driven leaders. Europe. If Europe fell, it would be hard to hope for democracy.

So we launched an audacious plan -- building an entire team of highly skilled ‘Elves’ to take on the trolls by investigating disinformation, and getting it taken down. Page by Page. Fake account by fake account. Tens of thousands of us donated to make it a reality, and over 80,000 Avaazers volunteered to help. Nothing like it had ever been tried! 


We did it - Europe resists

Working from a war room in Brussels our team of 30 uncovered what 30,000 Facebook monitors had missed -- a massive web of disinformation networks churning out toxic lies in the heart of Europe. We sent over 700 pages of detailed investigation results to Facebook, showing how these networks operate, coordinate, use fake accounts, and mislead people. 

And we didn’t just find them. We shut them down! In Spain, Italy, Poland, the Netherlands, the UK, France, and Germany. Everywhere we looked, we had impact. In total, Facebook took down networks that were racking up 3 BILLION (!!!!) views in a single year!! Enough to reach every single voter in Europe over twenty times! 

"I haven't seen any of the other fact-checking or disinformation monitoring groups have anything like the impact." - Facebook Insider


By the end, top EU politicians, journalists, and security experts were coming to our war room every single day for information and briefings, and Facebook publicly thanked us. Avaaz is now the epicenter of global efforts to combat disinformation

And our work made headline news all over the world, from the top story on The Guardian, to the front page of The New York Times, to Le MondeDer Spiegel, and El Mundo -- warning hundreds of millions of Europeans of the disinformation threat just before the elections. Just look at the coverage! 


We did it - Europe resists
 
Getting a Record Voter Turnout!

But that wasn’t all. The far right knew their best hope lay in low turnout. So one of the aims of disinformation is to destroy trust in institutions, leaders and democracy -- and put millions off voting. 
 
So we launched the biggest get out the vote operation in Avaaz history, deploying a team of outstanding creatives to flood social media across the continent with one hopeful message: Vote to save Europe
 
Our videos and images were so inspiring and popular that celebrities, hundreds of civil society groups, MEPs, and even the Spanish government shared them! Thanks in part to amazing online ads paid for by small donations from Avaaz members our content was seen by Europeans over 100 million times in the run up to the election -- everywhere from Facebook and Google, to Youtube, Instagram, and Snapchat. Check the examples below! 
 
Our videos and images were seen over 100 million times

Meanwhile, our team hit the phones, encouraging massive organisations like Spotify to use their reach to encourage people to vote. Spotify has 70 million users across Europe! 
 
And it worked! Turnout in the elections was the highest it’s been in 25 years!! And new voters overwhelmingly backed pro-European, progressive parties, who will bring bold new ideas to European decision-making. 
 
"Avaaz has been a driving force in helping the European Parliament mobilise people to vote at the 2019 European Elections. We succeeded in this together and increased the number of people who cast their vote for the very first time. This is what democracy is all about – thank you Avaaz!" - Jaume Duch Guillot, Director-General for Communication for the European Parliament

 

Not just Europe

 

The campaign wasn’t just in Europe -- we took our message to Silicon Valley too.
 
We championed an effective and simple solution to the fake news crisis that platforms could adopt tomorrow: Correct the Record. The idea is that every single person who sees fake news is told about it, and given verified, fact-checked corrections right in their news feed. When we came up with it, TIME Magazine called it a ‘radical new proposal that could curb fake news on social media’. Now it’s being tested by some of the biggest social networks on the planet. 
 
And we took brave survivors of disinformation from Burma, Finland, and the US to meet top executives at Twitter, Facebook, Google, and Youtube. When they told their stories, they brought tears to the eyes of the big tech leaders. And a week later, Twitter banned the Burmese military chief responsible for spreading vile hate speech that helped drive massacres of thousands of Rohingya people! 

 
We did it - Europe resists

Disinformation Survivors: Ethan Lindenberger, Tun Khin and Jessikka Aro

 

"The meetings were very emotional. I could see in their faces the realisation they are not doing enough. Eventually justice was done. This would not have not been possible without Avaaz. Thank you!" - Tun Khin, Rohingya disinformation survivor
 
 
A tipping point
 
And the result of all this? 
 
Europe is safe!! The far right rose a bit, but they're still a fringe with no power, and climate-saving Greens and pro-European liberal democrats have surged into being the new power-players! Far from crumbling, Europe will be stronger and better than ever for the next 5 years. And that is huge for humanity, on everything from climate change to biodiversity to human rights to cleaning up social media. 
 
And voter turnout was the highest in 25 years!! This is a BIG deal, because the far-right wants to portray the European Union as a project of elites and technocrats, but this election removes all doubt: it's a People's Europe now. 
 
This election was the result of a symphony of humanity of millions of citizens, leaders, parties, and civic groups who rallied to defend the values most of us hold dear. 
 
And damn are we proud of the role we played in that symphony. Because disinformation is a democracy killer. And this time, democracy killed disinformation.
 
And we can make this a tipping point. Because out of our greatest crises, our greatest progress can emerge. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights rose from the ashes of World War II. In South Africa, the brutality of apartheid gave rise to the most visionary national healing process ever seen. 
 
And now, from the crisis of global Trumpism, a new future is emerging. A future where people come together to defend and renew our democracies. To face down the lies. To choose love over hate. It’s a future our movement is shaping. And what happens next, will depend on all of us. 
 
With fierce gratitude and pride for all that we have done together, 
 
Ricken, Bert, Christoph, Flora, Fadi, Mike, Antonia, Luca, Luis, Martyna, Pascal, Pati, Nate, Joseph, Camille, Alice, Julie and the whole Avaaz team 
 
PS: Want more detail? Check out how many people these networks are estimated to have reached over a year! This is just some of what we got done across Europe:
  • 🇫🇷 France: We found disinformation on Facebook related to the Yellow Vests that reached more than 100 million views. Then Facebook removed the main white nationalist page and demoted two more for repeatedly spreading disinformation. 
     
  • 🇪🇸 Spain : Days before Spain's national elections, Facebook removed pages with more than 1.6 billion views a year after we flagged them! And we ran a groundbreaking investigation into the far-right party, and released the results to the media just before the vote! 
     
  • 🇮🇹 Italy: As a result of our investigation Facebook shut down pages with almost 4 million followers that racked up nearly 900 million views a year. 
     
  • 🇩🇪 Germany: Fake accounts and pages were spreading disinformation and boosting the reach of the far-right AfD party. After our report, Facebook took them down -- a network with more than 100 million views a year! 
     
  • 🇵🇱 Poland: Our team discovered a highly coordinated network spreading divisive anti-immigration and anti-EU content topics as well as false and misleading information. Facebook responded by removing pages with 1.9 million followers and 200 million views a year. 
     
  • 🇬🇧United Kingdom: Facebook took down content reaching 100 million views a year that was promoting banned figures like anti-Islam hate campaigner Tommy Robinson.

Benjamin Fulford Full Report 2019/05/27: As Theresa May loses battle of Britain, West Coast oligarchs sue for peace.

As Theresa May loses battle of Britain, West Coast oligarchs sue for peace.

Benjamin Fulford Full Report 

2019/05/27. 

 
.

 

 
 
The forced resignation of British Prime Minister (and Hitler daughter) Theresa May marked a decisive turning point in the battle for the planet Earth, multiple sources agree.  Already, her resignation has forced high-tech oligarchs Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, and Elon Musk to seek peace negotiations with the White Dragon Society (WDS), according to P2 Freemason sources.
Meanwhile, U.S. President Donald Trump has spent the Memorial Day weekend in Japan, in part to avoid assassination as moves begin to end the long political deadlock in Washington, D.C., Pentagon and Japanese right-wing sources say.
As many of us are aware, U.S. politics has been stuck in an endlessly repeating loop for two years, with hysterical Democrats using control of corporate media and every legal tool possible to remove Trump, while Trump endlessly tweets “witch hunt.”
To understand why the resignation of May is crucial to breaking the political deadlock, we need to take a quick look at the FISAgate scandal.  Basically, in 2016 the Rockefeller/Clinton oligarchs asked their Rothschild counterparts in the UK to circumvent U.S. law in order to spy on Trump and concoct the Russiagate scandal to impeach him.  May’s resignation means the British Nazi (Zionist) -allied oligarchs who fought against Trump are now all being purged from the British military/intelligence/political power structure, according to British royal family sources.  This purge will be accompanied by a similar purge in the U.S., according to Pentagon sources.
“Trump giving [U.S. Attorney General William] Barr power to declassify gives him clean hands to terminate Zionists when files are released about 9/11, 3/11 [Fukushima], and other military intelligence,” Pentagon sources promise.
 
A foretaste of the sorts of files that are about to be released came with this leak from Holland of video and photographs taken immediately after “Malaysian Air” Flight 370/17 was shot down over the Ukraine.  The film has been made available for download until June 1, but be warned that it contains graphic, stomach-churning images of mangled corpses.

The whistleblower who sent the file noted that the victims of “Flight 17” had invalid Dutch passports belonging to people who boarded Flight 370.  Also, many of the bodies were decomposed, wearing winter clothes for a summer flight or else naked, and had no blood.  The information contained on the flights’ black boxes has “never been made public by the English, who received them,” the source notes.
British MI6 sources say, “Both the current and former prime ministers colluded to pervert the course of the emancipation of Great Britain and as always, we found out, so they had to go.”  Now that they have been removed from power, the release of information from the Flight 370/17 black boxes is forthcoming, the sources add.  Also, former U.S. President Barack Obama is testifying now about the use of Flight 370/17 for nuclear blackmail against world leaders, CIA sources note.
 
There are many signs the Khazarian mafia is not taking these imminent disclosures well.  For one thing, CNN headlined an article about Trump’s visit to Japan with a photo of John F. Kennedy exiting a plane on the day of his assassination.

 
We also were treated to the spectacle of Rep. Jerry Nadler, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee which ran various congressional investigations against the president, passing out at a press conference.

 
Meanwhile, an obviously highly stressed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called for an “intervention” against Trump.

If the U.S. military police do not round up these criminals after such blatant threats against a sitting president, they’re guilty of dereliction of duty.
 
In any case, the Zionist rogue state of Israel is also under siege.  Mass-murdering war criminal Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been unable to form a government after his recent attempt to steal the election there.

“Israel is surrounded by missiles, S-400s, tsunami nukes, and may have to give up the Golan Heights,” Pentagon sources note.  Meanwhile, the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel “escalates with Trump forcing Israel to abandon Chinese projects, while Siemens, Bombardier, Hitachi, Macquarie, Alstom, and a Greek consortium all withdrew from the Jerusalem light rail project,” the sources note.  The EU is also reviewing its ties with the Zionist Israeli Bank Leumi,” they note.  Furthermore, Israeli crimes are “stoking anti-Semitism to the extent that Germany is warning Jews not to wear their skull caps,” the sources note.
“The true cost of war is being discussed among Pentagon insiders, perhaps including Army Chief of Staff Mark Milley, already designated to become the next Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,” comments Robert David Steele, former Marine and CIA officer.  “Both the President and the best of the senior leaders understand that being the Zionist tool for the Middle East has cost the USA not just seven trillion dollars, but 75,000 amputees, 250,000 or more confirmed PTSD cases, tens of thousands of rapes (male as well as female), and a virtual trillion-dollar crime wave as contractors have leveraged ‘easy money’ to cheat the military and the taxpayer,” he says.
Internationally, the Zionist neocon attempt to force regime change on Venezuela and steal that country’s oil has publicly been declared a failure.  Also, attempts to start a war with Iran have failed, and instead the U.S. government is now working on a comprehensive Middle East peace deal with Iran and Saudi Arabia, CIA sources note.  In Indonesia, a Zionist attempt to overturn the re-election of President Joko Widodo resulted in 7 deaths, 250 injuries, and 400 arrests before fizzling out.
In Europe, French Euro-skeptic Marine Le Pen defeated Rothschild-slave Emmanuel Macron in EU parliamentary elections.  The American and British leaders who will be in France to celebrate the 75th anniversary of D-Day on June 6 look as if they are set to once again liberate France from German conquerors.
These events are all very promising and show that things are indeed coming to a head, but—and this is a big “but”—we need to see the people behind these international criminal acts in handcuffs facing a public war-crimes tribunal before we can actually believe real change is imminent.
 
There are also signs that many oligarchs are far from defeated.  Patrick Wood from Technocracy.news has uncovered a Rockefeller scheme to launder $6 trillion created by fiat-money stock market inflation into 8,700 tax-free “opportunity zones” in the U.S.  He notes that this initiative was started by Sean Parker, who co-founded Facebook with Mark Zuckerberg.  Wood does not appear to know that Zuckerberg is David Rockefeller’s grandson.

In any case, as mentioned earlier, last week Jeff Bezos of Amazon, Elon Musk of Tesla, and Zuckerberg all contacted the WDS via the P2 Freemason lodge in Italy to propose a peace agreement, P2 sources say.  The three agree that some sort of world federation needs to be set up and humanity needs to be allowed to expand out into the universe, the sources say.  They also agree that whoever is blocking human progress needs to be dealt with.
The P2 identify Israel’s Netanyahu as one of the enemies who needs to be “flushed out and dealt with.”  The others are die-hard Zionist fanatics who still think they are going to artificially create the biblical end times, they say.
The other big issue that needs to be settled is the U.S./China trade war.  Pentagon sources think that “Trump has wisely used the trade war to let China hammer U.S. companies like Apple, Google, Boeing, and Nike, forcing them to move back home to ‘MAGA’ while creating an alternative global supply chain.”
However, the Americans need to study their own recent history. Back in the late 1980’s they forced Japan to increase the value of the yen by over 100%—in effect, creating massive tariffs—in order to eliminate the U.S./Japan trade deficit.  The only result was that Japanese manufacturing moved to the rest of Asia and the U.S. trade deficit kept rising.  Because Japan is occupied by the U.S. military, the Japanese were forced to keep buying U.S. government bonds and thus keep the U.S. afloat.  This is not the case with China.
Also, even if manufacturing should move from China to places like Vietnam, Asia as a whole will maintain a huge surplus relative to the United States.  The only way for the U.S. to end its trade deficit, as we keep repeating, is for it to give up the so-called “U.S. dollar” and issue its own lower-priced sovereign currency.
While Asia as a whole does not want to replace U.S. imperialism with Chinese imperialism, they will not continue to buy U.S. Treasuries to support constant U.S. warmongering.  The Asian secret societies transcend China and promise to keep up the fight against the Zionists until their fanatical nightmare is permanently ended.
Once this is done, the Asians and the rest of the world would be happy to support the U.S. military-industrial complex as it transforms itself from a Zionist imperialist tool into a benign planetary protection and space exploration force.
Benjamin Fulford.

The War on Human Consciousness ~ Rachel Horton White

The War on Human Consciousness.

By Rachel Horton White, 

Guest writer for Wake Up World.

May 31st, 2019. 

 


 

There is a war out there against the expansion of human consciousness. It has been escalating in recent years to the point where we must protect ourselves from the onslaught of this intervening frequency trying to turn us into stressed-out, sick automatons.
This is the same low-vibration energy that is responsible for the ravaging and disregard of the Earth herself along with all the plants and animals; responsible for the profit-driven, billion-dollar business of war and for the overly-medicated, misdiagnosed children raised on screens; responsible  for the greediness of the pharmaceutical industry “treating” illnesses that often make us even sicker – and obviously, responsible for the insanity that seems to run the U.S. government.
And most recently, the proposed 5G technology for cell phones is really the icing on the cake.

Awakening to Truth

Many of us wonder if we will ever feel better, if the Earth will ever heal. There are scares about climate change, about mass extinction of entire species and about the future of humanity itself.
But the greatest danger to the human race is our own unwillingness to pull the blinders off of our eyes. Smartphones have taken over many people’s consciousness to the point where they are numbing themselves to their loved ones and to their own souls. Our addiction to the news and to sources we think are telling us the truth have turned friends and family against each other just because they voted for a certain person for President.
It’s not fun to wake up to the fact that many of these institutions are harming us (although, as with everything, there are both good and bad elements in all). And many of us are still in denial about this, refusing to accept the enormity of the lies that we have been fed.
It’s too upsetting to believe so we try to go back into our shells and pretend it’s not real. But eventually we wake up to the Matrix (this movie, like many, has a message for us) and realize we are living in a version of the Truman Show.

Shifting Energies

Fortunately,  the energies are shifting to shake us out of our slumber. More and more people are experiencing spiritual awakening (are you seeing 11:11 everywhere? That’s a clear sign that you’re awakening. If not… you will – and this meditation might help).
Often, change does not occur until it is forced, or until it gets more difficult to avoid. It’s going to get harder and harder to avoid flowing with these new, expansive energies.
We have reached a point when people can choose the path of love, healing, forgiveness, kindness and freedom. It is a path that requires great courage, risk and overcoming fear. The alternative is the path of being afraid, of going along with the crowd and of making choices based on worry about worst-case scenario. We have free will as human souls. We can choose love, or we can choose fear. Often we choose a mixture of both.
Faced with so many choices, it’s natural to feel so overwhelmed that we do nothing. But it is this collective apathy that has led us to the state that we are in today.

Defeating Overwhelm: Start with One Small Thing

What do you care about? What one small thing can you do to make a positive change in the world today?
In the past, when I saw something that bothered me, I would have complained to someone, but then probably forgotten about it.
Let me give you an example. Recently, after visiting a local farm and dairy product company that claims to be free-range, we were dismayed to see that the cows were not free-range at all. My kids told me they did not want to go back there “until the cows’ chains were off their necks.”
Before, I would have felt that I could not really do anything to change the situation. But that excuse does not work for me anymore. I can no longer watch from the sidelines. And my children remind me of this.
So, one small thing. I emailed the company management and wrote a review of them, but they said they would do nothing. So I wrote a letter to the editor of our local newspaper (which was published). The next step, if needed, will be to contact the suppliers and restaurants to let them know about the problem so they can refuse to buy from this company if need be.
Humans for years have unconsciously eaten animals that have suffered or bought products that put chemicals in our bodies or on our lawnsThe power of the consumer to put the pressure on companies to do better with what we buy or do not buy cannot be underestimated.
What’s your one small thing, that you can do now, today, to make a difference?

Activate to Evolve

We are awakening to the truth of what has been done to us in our lives. It’s not our fault. Mostly. But we now know. So it’s up to us to now do something about it. This is our time to activate. Each and every one of us.
The solutions are simple when broken down. Here are 7 things that work for me and may also help you:
  • Quiet your mind every day. At least for 5 minutes, ideally for 15-20 minutes.
  • Connect with something beyond yourself – something based in light and love.
  • Put your phone down when you can. Just try it. Wait 5 seconds before picking it up next time. Ask yourself, “Why am I doing this?” and see if it feels good to you.
  • Get out in nature for no particular reason or purpose other than just to wander, explore and observe.
  • Connect with other people, in person if possible. Ask for Spirit to guide you to people that can lift you up and support you.
  • Do something to help the world. “Think globally, act locally.” Pick one cause you care about and take five minutes to do something – more than just signing a petition online. Make a phone call, write a letter to the editor, show up at a rally.
  • Think about what you buy, eat and put on your body and in your home and make a statement with your wallet. If it has chemicals in it, is made of an animal that has suffered, or is rooted in perpetuating harm to the Earth in some way, you may want to pause and really ask yourself if it’s worth it.
Consumers will ultimately revolutionize our world. When we refuse to give our money to companies that destroy the Earth and its beings, they will either change their ways or cease to exist.
We are now being asked to choose. The turning point has been reached. We are being asked to have courage. We are being asked to heal ourselves and find light in our hearts. Not everyone will answer this call. They may experience life in a completely different way than you do.  But the time has come for us to activate, to speak up for justice, to advocate for causes we believe in, and to help ourselves and others by connecting with our souls and with light all around us to help us do this.
 I do believe there is a lot of hope for change, as more people are choosing the path of expansion, freedom and love. And there are positive changes being made in some areas of government, companies, education and even the health care system. But more of us are needed to speak up from a place of love, compassion and forgiveness (even for those responsible for the suffering). The time is now for us to decide.
I believe that nature will eventually recover. Whether or not humans choose to do so is another story.
What will you choose?

My week long ban from YouTube is over... this means I had to come back with some FIRE! And boy, there was sure plenty to discuss. Attacks on QAnon, attacks on MMS, censorship by the Big Tech companies, UFO stories flying all around (no pun intended), and then some.

 
Oh, and John Podesta blocked me on Twitter. Ha! Amazing news.
 
Watch these videos for the full stories!
 
And I've also noticed that YouTube has either been unsubscribing people from my channel, or preventing the notifications from going out to subscribers, so make sure you are both subscribed to my channel and have the little bell clicked to get notifications!

Follow My Backups

Seeing as YouTube loves to ban my main channel whenever it suits their fancy... it may be a good idea for you to follow me on my backup channels that I use whenever YouTube bans me.

 
I have a "2.0" channel on YouTube, and I'll also post on BitChute and Vimeo if there's ever a time YouTube prevents my from uploading anything to my main channel. Here are the links for the back ups:

6 Signs You Are in a Narcissistic Relationship and What to Do. ~ Rachael Pace

6 Signs You Are in a Narcissistic Relationship and What to Do.

Rachael Pace,  learning-mind.com

May 28, 2019. 

 
narcissistic relationship signs.

 

 

Being in a narcissistic relationship is hardly ideal. While your partner is the center of attention at all times, you probably feel like your needs could use a little dusting off.
narcissistic personality disorder is a condition of the mind where one person has an inflated sense of self, a constant need for attention, and lacks empathy for others. They may also be incredibly charming, manipulative, and toxic when it comes to being in a relationship.
Don’t let someone’s inflated ego ruin your chance at happiness. How to recognize if you are in a relationship with a narcissist?

These are 6 warning signs that you are in a narcissistic relationship and ways how you can fix things.

  1. They need constant praise and attention

Narcissists have delusions of grandeur, so it isn’t surprising that one of the most common signs of narcissistic personality disorders is the need for praise from their partners.
A narcissist wants their spouse to acknowledge their talents, appearance, intelligence, and achievements on an almost constant basis.
All partners love when their spouse makes them feel special. However, such needy behavior of a narcissistic person can be detrimental to a relationship in many ways.
  1. The charm turns on and off

One thing about narcissists is that they know how to charm their partners. Because of their excessive need to be liked and adored, they will know exactly how to come off as put-together, likable, and endearing. Such behavior will, of course, inflate their ego.
But once the honeymoon period is over, a narcissist will reveal their true colors. Some examples include sulking when you disagree with them, getting angry over the smallest things, and seemingly losing any interest in pretending to care about what you are thinking or feeling.
  1. Demeaning toward others

Is there anything more distasteful than someone treating others as their lesser?
Because a narcissist views themselves as superior to others, they will often demean people around them. They will obsess over the negative parts of others’ personalities, lives, and backgrounds. They judge others relentlessly.
Not only is this damaging to your mental health, but this can also be embarrassing when introducing your spouse to your friends or family. It can also be challenging when dealing with people who work in the service industry, such as at restaurants or hotels.
  1. Zero empathy

Any family psychologist will tell you that developing empathy and compassion for your partner is essential for a healthy relationship.
Empathy means that you feel for your partner. It means you have a fellow-feeling for those around you or at the very least, for those closest to you.
Unfortunately, a lack of empathy is incredibly common in narcissistic personalities. It is what allows them to disconnect from you emotionally and be cruel without thinking twice.
  1. There is no compromise

Whether they’re trying to make their spouse stay in the relationship or are convincing them that they are on the wrong side of an argument, narcissists know how to manipulate.
Instead of coming together to communicate about how you are feeling or resolve any issues you’re having, a narcissist will overreact at even the slightest sign of your disagreeing with them.
  1. You feel bad about yourself

Relationships should make you feel good, not worthless. Gaslighting, or manipulating a partner to the point that they question their own judgment or sanity, is a common practice of toxic abusers. It can leave you feeling like you don’t even know who you are anymore.
While in a relationship with a narcissistic person, you may:
  • Feel like everything you do is wrong
  • Find yourself apologizing all the time
  • Constantly question yourself
  • Feel anxious and nervous around your spouse
  • Frequently apologize/make excuses for your spouse’s behavior
  • Become isolated from friends and family
  • Feel like you’re walking on eggshells

What to do when you’re dating a narcissist

Being part of a healthy relationship means that both partners are 100 percent willing to share their lives, thoughts, and time together. This is what creates a long-lasting, strong marriage.
If you have been dating a narcissistic personality for some time now, you are likely growing tired of the lack of give-and-take in your relationship. If that is the case, there are steps you can take for moving forward:
  • Make a decision to end your relationship

After months or years of dealing with manipulation and ego-trips, odds are your close friends and family would not blame you for throwing in the towel.
Typical narcissistic behavior is that if you try and end the relationship, they will either try and manipulate you into staying or turn on the charm in the hopes of winning back your favor.
Don’t buy it.
You deserve better than to be with someone who isn’t actually interested in being a part of your life.
  • If you live together, start withdrawing emotionally, little by little.

It’s also wise to start putting away a nest-egg of cash for when you do leave. You may also consider seeking the support of a lawyer, a trusted friend or family member. You may also need law enforcement when you finally leave to help prevent any violent outbursts.
If your spouse’s narcissistic behavior has turned dangerous to your mental or physical health, it’s time to call it quits. Once your partner has been abusive, it is likely that they will repeat the same behavior if you decide to cross them.
Even if you don’t but they feel threatened by you, they will not flinch before engaging in abusive behavior. There is no turning back from abuse. If you have been subjected to narcissistic abuse, you must gather help and resources to get out of the relationship.

You are the best judge of your relationship.

Exercise discretion to know if there is a hope for things to change for better or is your partner a looming threat to your well being.
However, keep in mind that narcissistic personality disorder is something that can be acquired during the growing ages. It isn’t easy to get rid off and sometimes, it’s completely impossible.
Even if you see some hope of resurrecting your relationship, exercise caution. Narcissists excel in the art of pretention and they can easily fool you into believing they can change. But that’s hardly possible, ever.
