A noble man compares and estimates himself by an idea which is higher than himself; and a mean man, by one lower than himself. The one produces aspiration; the other ambition, which is the way in which a vulgar man aspires.

he common understanding of the word “sovereign” brings to mind images of kings, queens and supreme rulers, with all the associated regalia, pomp and circumstance that we have come to know from our television screens. It’s hard to get away from, particularly in Britain where Queen Elizabeth II is a mere 31 places removed in the “senior direct royal line” from French-born William The Conqueror (or William The Bastard as he was known before 1066). With such a long, rich history of hereditary royal dominion, it’s understandable that people can’t help but think of sovereignty as something outside of themselves. But that is starting to change. For a growing number of people focusing on matters of consciousness, sacred knowledge and personal freedom, the reclamation of the word sovereign has become profoundly consequential. Within this paradigm, to recognize oneself as a sovereign being is to acknowledge one’s own

total spiritual autonomy and unconditional entitlement to self-determination. It is a primary avowal of oneself as a free and natural human being – not a serf, a subject, a corporate entity, or even a citizen. No persons or man-made laws have any jurisdiction whatsoever over a sovereign being. This is all very alarming for any empire that secretly prefers its populace to feel toothless. It’s deceptively tricky for us to comprehend that power is not something that is graciously conferred upon us by the authorities. It is not something that we must work hard to be worthy of. Real power is not something that can be handed over at all: it is something that we already have inside us. It is there from the beginning and it is the ultimate power. It is the power of freewill. The amount of freewill an individual possesses is directly proportionate to the depth and clarity of consciousness attained. Before it can be fully realized, the very existence of our free will must first be acknowledged. The slumbering mind is not cognizant of the

awesome reality-shaping power that lies within its grasp; freewill might just as well be equated with choosing what movies to watch or what shoes to buy. In contrast, the awakened mind is acutely aware of how freewill can transform imaginal visions into manifest things. It is seen as a defining characteristic of the spiritually alive human. The more integrity, equanimity and honesty we resonate in our thoughts, deeds and conduct – the more honourable we are – the purer our mind. This allows us to deepen and broaden our consciousness and that determines the impact of our freewill upon the world. It is one of the cleverest failsafe devices that the universe has ever implemented. It ensures that only the true soul, transparently operating from a place of honour, can actually change reality. Honour also serves as a keen instrument of discernment, especially with regard to observing intent and behaviour, both in ourselves and others. We have an in-built facility for gauging whether someone’s words and deeds are honourable or not. Honour is one of those rare qualities that transcends the usual social and demographic boundaries; its unique energetic signature is readily perceptible to most humans. We can feel it. One would think that honour is a highly desirable attribute for any leader who represents large numbers of people. Indeed, it ought to be a mandatory requirement for any sane society, to insist on leaders who naturally radiate honour in their governance. We should never be afraid to look into the hearts of our fellow men to ask these questions. Think of any prominent personality in the media. You can tell pretty much straight away whether their motivations are honourable or

not. It’s not hard to look beyond the veneer of customer-facing geniality. Though we may see the persistent fabrication of sincerity, faith and morality in certain individuals, not all things can be so easily counterfeited. The singular nuances of honour remain decidedly elusive to those who have not actually walked the talk. They can’t quite pull it off. Honor cannot be stolen or sequestered. Nor can it be read from a script or learned at a government training centre in Aspen. You don’t automatically acquire it by rolling your sleeves up to help out at the orphanage, or volunteering at the soup kitchen, or showing up at church on Sunday, or pretending to give a hoot about massacres in distant lands. Observing the famous faces of politics, business and entertainment going through these masquerades has never really fooled anyone. For the naturally ascendant human spirit, honour is a fundamental impulse. It is what we want to do and it is how we want to be. Even so, it can sometimes be difficult to muster the necessary spiritual courage and self-discipline to make this into a living reality. Things get a little rusty with lack of use. Fortunately, our forefathers devised all kinds of positive frameworks to help us regain spiritual fitness. One such system – the Noble Eightfold Path – was formulated by Siddhartha Gautama, aka Buddha, about 2500 years ago. It is a simple yet elegant teaching in conscious living, consisting of right view, right thought, right speech, right behaviour, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness and right concentration. The key word here is “right”. At first glance, one might reasonably argue that what is right for one person might be wrong for another.

O

ur planet is under attack and we can no longer go on business as usual, in any area of our lives. Besides the war on our food, air and water and overall health and environment, the EMF and nuclear radiation bombardment is escalating exponentially by the day. Clear conscious awareness is our weapon of survival, including having a clear grasp of the issues being relentlessly thrown at us. We must help activate, educate and further inspire the wonderful awakening we’re witnessing in every possible way. There are many ways to promote and affirm empowerment in the face of this onslaught. The most important tools have already been gifted to us by way of our inherent connection to infinite potential. We each need to discover and employ what Universe reveals to us as we grow in awareness. Information is empowering. Love and Truth are empowering. Conscious loving community is empowering. Taking a militant approach to protect our embattled health is empowering. Yoga, meditative practices and other disciplines are empowering. Learning how to detoxify from chemtrails and other heavy metals and pollutants is empowering. Discovering the affects of orgonite was another empowering encounter for me. Much like quantum physics, I may not fully understand it, but intuitively it resonates with me and it’s

been a part of my life for several years now. I hope the enclosed article on utilizing the life force in this issue will keep you “wondering” and learning about new ways to empower yourself and others as well as help cleanse our embattled environment. Just remember, the human body is the ultimate living crystalline structure. With our consciousness awakened and our inherent connection to infinite Source, we are each much more powerful than any physical technology. Nothing is more powerful or effective than an awakened, conscious soul. Nothing. But being connected to this physical plane as we are there are plenty of helpful technologies to learn about. I hope this inspires you to keep up the good fight for our species and our planet. The situation is critical and we need all hands on deck to keep encouraging and manifesting the awareness and empowerment evolution. It’s happening and it’s working! Much Love - Zen

What Are YOU Doing to Be The Change?

by Vanessa Petronelli

handi’s powerful and straightforward quote etches a profound and deep imprint for the fate of humanity. For years, I, like many others complained and became frustrated by the daily events that have unfolded and continue to unfold on our planet. It is easy to fall into the trap of blaming and feeling powerless, thinking that we cannot make a difference in the world. The world you see, hear and read about in mainstream media is one of struggle, separation, violence and fear. How can we feel empowered as individuals when we are bombarded daily with images and stories of human beings suffering around the world and in our own backyards? It’s easy to feel hopeless and helpless when you have roles and responsibilities that consume most of your day and you can’t be, “out there,” making a difference and changing the system actively. The majority of the population are not activists, or in an authoritative role as a well-known figure or philanthropist. Because of this, many believe that they can’t make a difference in the world for they simply don’t have the time, energy, means or support to do so. But this is all an illusion. This illusion has been created by those who have made the structures that are currently in place on this planet that are keeping us in a state of fear, suffering and of separation. It has been

Collective-Evolution.com designed this way for those in power to stay in control and for us to view ourselves as beings that are subjected to what is taking place outside of us. We are conditioned from an early age to believe that in order to have a voice and to make a real difference in the world we have to become a success and play a certain role in society to be recognized and heard. Many have this idea that the world will become a better place when certain institutions, governments, the economy etc. make changes. Human beings wait around for situations and people to change, believing that their lives will become more peaceful and enjoyable as a result. If we keep this belief in tact, we will be waiting around for centuries for this to be the case. Change first starts with YOU and only with you. What we think about and how we feel about our world and ourselves greatly impacts our physical reality. We are energetic beings in a constant motion of emitting and receiving energy. What we focus on and put out into the world then creates our reality. As energetic beings we are far more powerful than what we have been told and led to believe. When we fully step and stand in our power we assist the planet in a variety of ways. It’s obvious that if we believe the information we are fed daily, we will consistently remain in the same state. As empowered individuals we have to make the personal choice to stop this cycle and do our inner work to see lasting change on Earth. If we want to achieve peace we must be peace. We must do the inner work to clear all that resides within us that isn’t of a peaceful nature. If we want to experience unconditional love, we must work on loving ourselves unconditionally and accepting all parts of our being. If we want to achieve oneness, we must clear all of the beliefs and ideas that we are separate from one another. If we want to live on a cleaner planet, we must make the necessary changes to be environmentally conscious. It takes concerted effort, dedication and consistent energy and focus on making this happen, but this is the only way we will really see true change occur. We are going through a great change on this planet currently. For the first time in thousands of years the Consciousness of this planet is rising and the energy frequency is vibrating at a higher rate. All lower forms of energy and what we label as, “negative,” our limiting belief systems and fear based thought forms are now more easily able to dissolve and be released. We are moving out of an energy and consciousness of fear and into one of love. We are moving from a state of separateness into that of oneness. We all have the ability to bring change to the planet in a more positive way. But we have to take the necessary action steps to create that, first as individuals and then as a whole. As we awaken and draw awareness to this knowledge, we become all that which we are meant to be. Stop complaining, stop the stories, stop the judgments, stop feeling hopeless and helpless and start BEING the change. Shine brightly and watch your inner and outer world transform as a result.

That odd, unfamiliar sound you’ve been hearing in your soul is the noise of the old paradigm collapsing, failing & dying all around us. This is the moment in time just before the chrysalis opens: the time when the caterpillar thinks he’s dying and the butterfly knows it’s being born. which helped us arrive here are now about as much help as a burned out booster rocket.  With each new day humanity travels deeper into this undiscovered country of the future where the only footprints are the ones we’re making.  There are no signposts to guide us, indeed it looks as though WE will be the pathfinders in this new land; and unfortunately the best help history can give us now is a sense of what doesn’t work.                                                                      That odd, unfamiliar sound you’ve been hearing in your soul is the noise of the old paradigm collapsing, failing & dying all around us, even as the new world is so close we c a n hear

the wing beats of passing angels and manifesting thoughtforms.  This is the moment in time just before the chrysalis opens: the time when the caterpillar thinks he’s dying and the butterfly knows it’s being born.  Nothing that the caterpillar knows is of use to the new born butterfly, so he flies away from the chrysalis, never looking back. Unlike the butterfly, we need to look back upon the path that got us here and understand that to continue on it IS the death that the caterpillar fears.  The evolution of humanity is happening right now; and as we struggle to free ourselves from the cocoon of old, dying thought forms and undying greed, others seek to derail & deny the evolutionary process, and enslave us.  Just as the butterfly cannot return to what it was, neither can we if what we seek is the

your emails and credit card purchases.  Because they don’t want us getting any funny ideas about freedom, we are not allowed to see what is going on right now in places like Iceland and Greece, where people are putting it all on the line for freedom.  Instead we get a never ending series of manufactured political crisis’s one after another, carefully crafted to demoralize & confuse us so we don’t see the magician at work behind the curtain...and don’t give voice to any critical or questioning thoughts.  The great science fiction writer Ray Bradbury first brought up the concept of the butterfly effect (in the short story “A Sound of Thunder”) as a way of showing that small changes in one location can have enormous effects later in places far distant.  This ripple effect is a sensitive dependency on initial conditions, and much like Fukushima, helps to illustrate that Gaia is a living organism and that what affects one, affects all.  I look around, taking in all that is happening during this Aquarian sunrise, and I wonder if this great spiritual awakening we see is perhaps the first wing flaps as the butterfly emerges from the cocoon; and what mighty winds of change might grow from it.  Not only must we extract ourselves from the now empty husk of the cocoon, we must leave it behind & fly away on new wings into this brave new world we know so little about. Just as the butterfly begins its new life without consulting the wisdom of the caterpillar: we too must realize that the past cannot guide our decision making in the future, beyond the categories of bad example and doesn’t work, anyway.  This moment in time is why we spent so much time working on ourselves, this is what we were all preparing for; it’s why we took the course of study which included facing our fears and trusting our instincts.  All the newly born butterfly knows is that it must fly to survive.  Like us humans it doesn’t have a map either, and must rely upon instinct to navigate a world in the upheaval of transformation.  Because we know on some inner level that we’re navigating without a map, (much less an owner’s manual) we’re just milling about waiting for the scoutmaster to come along and show us the way, when we should be networking with others to figure out how to hasten the departure of those who enslave us to slow the death of their dying paradigm.  We remain indifferent at our own peril because we falsely believe our silence will somehow magically exclude us from the fate of the masses, and allow us to keep our shiny possessions even as everyone else looses theirs.  Our natural predilection to self deception has proven to be one of the most powerful weapons the powers that be are using against us.  We can almost always be counted upon to prefer a custom made lie over the unadorned truth.  As the writer Brendan Gil once observed, “History records no struggle more noble or long enduring than that of humanity against the truth.”

freedom to evolve as we will in the absence of tyranny.  Those who would capture & enslave us regard us with about the same esteem as a collector who displays those specimens coming out of a kill jar.  To them we are as insects who have no right to our lives or futures, here only for their amusement and exploitation.  How can we look at all the wholesale rape & pillaging going on in places like Africa, the mid-east, and South America without also seeing that it is, in fact, being done to the planet, and us?  Here in the west we drank the kool-aid a long time ago, and with it, the notion that North America is immune from the things that plague other

limb aboard for an unflinching ride thru the uncharted landscape of the Kali Yuga & the Great Shift of the Ages. A few years ago I had the opportunity to go back to the “old neighbourhood” I grew up in and have me a look around.  I am usually not the type who goes for nostalgia, but it had been so long, and I was a bit curious.  The first pass was just a slow drive down 53rd St. to take in the big picture and compare it to the one in my memory.  As I cruised down the street nearly everyone who was outside paused long enough to glance at me.  I wasn’t driving anything that would draw the eye; it was just everyone knew that car didn’t “belong” in that neighbourhood.  The place was still so familiar, yet so changed.  My eyes were drawn to the houses all my friends used to live in, and the memories flowed like Sonoma county wine.  When I got to the house I grew up in I noticed that the next door neighbour was just coming out of the garage to wash his truck. I looked closer, by gosh, it was Mr. Baer, father of my old friend from next door, Jim. I parked by the curb and slowly got out, Mr. Baer already giving me a good looking over.  Across the street I could see Mrs. Hale, looking my way, framed by the front door threshold.  It was great to see these old familiar faces, and I felt a warm grin growing on my face as I approached my former neighbour.  He had not recognized me yet, and was squinting a bit in the bright sunlight.  He laid down his bucket & brush and in a familiar southern drawl he says, “If yer sellin somethin ya can just get back in that car Mister!” I politely removed my shades & ball cap, still smiling, and said, “Hi Mr. Baer, can Jimmy come out & play?”  It took a few seconds before I could see the light of recognition in his face...the smile I’d expected, missing in action.  “Well I’ll be damned” he said, “Once you moved to Alaska we figured we’d seen the last of ya! Whatever brings ya back to the old neighbourhood?”  He continued what he was doing as we spoke and before long I was up to date on the recent history of this place which had been my home so very long ago.  I made a point of stopping to briefly visit with a couple more of the old guard neighbours before I took my leave of this sojourn down memory lane, and their enthusiasm was on a par with Mr. Baer’s.  I can well remember how I felt driving away from that place for what I knew would be the last time.  I felt disconnected, barely remembered (despite some historic hell-raising as a kid) but most of all I remember feeling that all the ‘time’ I’d put in there ended up meaning little, or nothing in the long run.  With no family still living in that neighbourhood it was little more than a hologram of my youth, with no connection to my present, or future.  I recall that feeling so well because it is the same one I’m feeling right now, as we collectively try to get our bearings in this new age of Aquarius.  We are out beyond the reach of history: and the things, ideas, & solutions

countries.  Those who seek to hijack this spiritual evolution know exactly what they are doing.  They have monitored & studied every last habit and preference of every last individual on Earth just as the fisherman studies what makes the fish bite.  They bombard us with non-stop images of war, death, disease, lust, greed and hatred to sap our will to resist them; then poison our skies and food to remove us from the equation altogether.  To keep us content in our ignorance we are given an endless streaming of mindless excrement, custom tailored to each person’s tastes.  It wasn’t hard to accomplish.  First they ever so gradually reduced the quality of “programming” to a common denominator somewhere between Homer Simpson & Judge Judy; then they determine what to advertise to you by reading

3) OOPS, MARIJUANA MAY PREVENT CANCER, PART III

10) MARIJUANA USE HAS NO EFFECT ON MORTALITY A massive study of California HMO members funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) found marijuana use caused no significant increase in mortality. Tobacco use was associated with increased risk of death. Sidney, S et al. Marijuana Use and Mortality. American Journal of Public Health. Vol. 87 No. 4, April 1997. p. 585-590. Sept. 2002.

9) HEAVY MARIJUANA USE AS A YOUNG ADULT WON’T RUIN YOUR LIFE Veterans Affairs scientists looked at whether heavy marijuana use as a young adult caused long-term problems later, studying identical twins in which one twin had been a heavy marijuana user for a year or longer but had stopped at least one month before the study, while the second twin had used marijuana no more than five times ever. Marijuana use had no significant impact on physical or mental health care utilization, health-related quality of life, or current socio-demographic characteristics. Eisen SE et al. Does Marijuana Use Have Residual Adverse Effects on Self-Reported Health Measures, Socio-Demographics or Quality of Life? A Monozygotic Co-Twin Control Study in Men. Addiction. Vol. 97 No. 9. p.1083-1086. Sept. 1997

8) THE “GATEWAY EFFECT” MAY BE A MIRAGE Marijuana is often called a “gateway drug” by supporters of prohibition, who point to statistical “associations” indicating that persons who use marijuana are more likely to eventually try hard drugs than those who never use marijuana – implying that marijuana use somehow causes hard drug use. But a model developed by RAND Corp. researcher Andrew Morral demonstrates that these associations can be explained “without requiring a gateway effect.” More likely, this federally funded study suggests, some people simply have an underlying propensity to try drugs, and start with what’s most readily available. Morral AR, McCaffrey D and Paddock S. Reassessing the Marijuana Gateway Effect. Addiction. December 2002. p. 1493-1504.

7) PROHIBITION DOESN’T WORK, PART I The White House had the National Research Council examine the data being gathered about drug use and the effects of U.S. drug policies. NRC concluded, “the nation possesses little

information about the effectiveness of current drug policy, especially of drug law enforcement.” And what data exist show “little apparent relationship between severity of sanctions prescribed for drug use and prevalence or frequency of use.” In other words, there is no proof that prohibition – the cornerstone of U.S. drug policy for a century – reduces drug use. National Research Council. Informing America’s Policy on Illegal Drugs: What We Don’t Know Keeps Hurting Us. National Academy Press, 2001. p. 193.

6) PROHIBITION DOESN’T WORK, PART II: DOES PROHIBITION CAUSE THE “GATEWAY EFFECT”?

Researchers at the Kaiser-Permanente HMO, funded by NIDA, followed 65,000 patients for nearly a decade, comparing cancer rates among non-smokers, tobacco smokers, and marijuana smokers. Tobacco smokers had massively higher rates of lung cancer and other cancers. Marijuana smokers who didn’t also use tobacco had no increase in risk of tobaccorelated cancers or of cancer risk overall. In fact their rates of lung and most other cancers were slightly lower than non-smokers, though the difference did not reach statistical significance. Sidney, S. et al. Marijuana Use and Cancer Incidence (California, United States). Cancer Causes and Control. Vol. 8. Sept. 1997, p. 722728.

2) OOPS, MARIJUANA MAY PREVENT CANCER, PART IV Donald Tashkin, a UCLA researcher whose work is funded by NIDA, did a casecontrol study comparing 1,200 patients with

lung, head and neck cancers to a matched group with no cancer. Even the heaviest marijuana smokers had no increased risk of cancer, and had somewhat lower cancer risk than non-smokers (tobacco smokers had a 20-fold increased lung cancer risk). Tashkin D. Marijuana Use and Lung Cancer: Results of a Case-Control Study. American Thoracic Society International Conference. May 23, 2006.

1) MARIJUANA DOES HAVE MEDICAL VALUE:  In response to passage of California’s medical marijuana law, the White House had the Institute of Medicine (IOM) review the data on marijuana’s medical benefits and risks. The IOM concluded, “Nausea, appetite loss, pain and anxiety are all afflictions of wasting, and all can be mitigated by marijuana.” While noting potential risks of smoking, the report acknowledged there is no clear alternative for people suffering from chronic conditions that might be relieved by smoking marijuana, such as pain or AIDS wasting. The government’s refusal to acknowledge this finding caused coauthor John A. Benson to tell the New York Times that the government loves to ignore our report; they would rather it never happened. (Joy, JE, Watson, SJ, and Benson, JA. Marijuana and Medicine: Assessing the Science Base. National Academy Press. 1999. p. 159. See also, Harris, G. FDA Dismisses Medical Benefit From Marijuana.

U.S. and Dutch researchers, supported in part by NIDA, compared marijuana users in San Francisco, where non-medical use remains illegal, to Amsterdam, where adults may possess and purchase small amounts of marijuana from regulated businesses. Looking at such parameters as frequency and quantity of use and age at onset of use, they found no differences except one: Lifetime use of hard drugs was significantly lower in Amsterdam, with its “tolerant” marijuana policies. For example, lifetime crack cocaine use was 4.5 times higher in San Francisco than Amsterdam. Reinarman, C, Cohen, PDA, and Kaal, HL. The Limited Relevance of Drug Policy: Cannabis in Amsterdam and San Francisco. American Journal of Public Health. Vol. 94, No. 5. May 2004. p. 836-842.

5) OOPS, MARIJUANA MAY PREVENT CANCER, PART I Federal researchers implanted several types of cancer, including leukemia and lung cancers, in mice, then treated them with cannabinoids (unique, active components found in marijuana). THC and other cannabinoids shrank tumours and increased the mice’s lifespans. Munson, AE et al. Antineoplastic Activity of Cannabinoids. Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Sept. 1975. p. 597-602.

4) OOPS, MARIJUANA MAY PREVENT CANCER, PART II In a 1994 study the government tried to suppress, federal researchers gave mice and rats massive doses of THC, looking for cancers or other signs of toxicity. The rodents given THC lived longer and had fewer cancers, “in a dose-dependent manner” (i.e. the more THC they got, the fewer tumours). NTP Technical Report On The Toxicology

Finance Why Is The World Economy Doomed? The Global Financial Pyramid Scheme By The Numbers

Americans’ Economic Prospects And Civil Liberties Have Been Stolen

urrency markets are keeping close track of Cyprus’ banking crisis and are braced for possible repercussions, but one currency has thrived in the chaos and zoomed in value — Bitcoins. A Bitcoin is a digital currency that is traded electronically and does not need government backing. Despite its name, there is no coin to put in your pocket. Two weeks ago, one Bitcoin was worth $40, then a record high. Today, it’s worth $72, largely because of “incremental interest” from euro and Russian ruble holders who are terrified by the situation in Cyprus, said Nicholas Colas, chief market strategist at ConvergEx Group, a financial technology company in Manhattan.

hy is the global economy in so much trouble? How can so many people be so absolutely certain that the world financial system is going to crash? Well, the truth is that when you take a look at the cold, hard numbers it is not difficult to see why the global financial pyramid scheme is destined to fail.

or most Americans income has stagnated and declined for the past two decades. Much of what Americans lost in wages and salaries as their jobs were moved offshore came back to shareholders and executives in the form of capital gains and performance bonuses from the higher profits that flowed from lower foreign labor costs. The absence of growth in real consumer incomes resulted in the Federal Reserve expanding credit in order to keep consumer demand growing. The growth of consumer debt was substituted for the missing growth in consumer income. Economists have failed to recognize the threat that jobs offshoring poses to economies and to economic theory itself.

Maduro, who barely avoided explicitly saying the United States had poisoned Chavez, talked about “scientific laboratories [that were] testing how to cause cancer” in the U.S. in the 1940s and 1950s and asked whether that technology might have progressed since then, CNN adds.’ Chavez himself made similar claims on more than one occasion.

From doctors and hospital staff to schools and city officials, the message being repeated over and over is that Fukushima is safe, so much so that I have come to feel that, if I didn’t go along with it and join in this way of thinking, then I would simply not be welcome there.

cientists from Duke University in North Carolina have identified yet another major threat to human health posed by the plastics chemical bisphenol-A (BPA). According to new research, babies exposed to BPA in utero, or during their developmental stages in the womb, could experience inhibited central nervous system development, which in turn could set them up for future stricken with neurodevelopmental problems. “Our study found that BPA may impair the development of the central nervous system, and raises questions as to whether exposure could predispose animals and humans to neurodevelopmental disorders,” added Dr. Liedtke. “Our findings improve our understanding of how environmental exposure to BPA can affect the regulation of the KCC2 gene. However, we expect future studies to focus on what targets aside from KCC2 are affected by BPA.”

US Farmer’s Flood Fields with Dangerous Poison to Fight Monsanto Superweeds

Y

ou’re a farmer. Season after season, you watch your fields being taken over by Monsanto superweeds, which are resistant to the herbicide Roundup. What are you going to do? You’re locked in. You’re buying your GMO seeds from Monsanto, and the food crops that grow from those seeds are supposed to be resistant to Monsanto’s Roundup, so that’s what you spray on your crops. And now the weeds are resistant. They spread and they grow taller. They’re taking over. So you, along with many, many other US farmers, go to a strategy called “burndown,” which is just as bad as it sounds. You use something a lot stronger than Roundup to kill those weeds: Paraquat, for example, which has been banned in 32 countries. You drench your fields with it in the fall. You kill anything growing. And you drench the fields again in the spring, before you plant. Then, just as you’re going to plant, you hit the fields a third time with the poison. Then you harvest the crops and you sell them. And consumers eat the food along with all the poison..

Raw Food: How and Why I

The Excalibur is a great dehydrator. If you have great equipment—a dehydrator, a great blender, a juicer—then eating raw is not so hard, because you can easily make versions of the cooked food that you used to enjoy.  I make crackers, bread, granola, a zucchini lasagna. I used to love sushi, so now I roll things in nori leaves and cabbage leaves that recreate those tastes.”

f raw food diets sound crazy to you, they won’t after you take a look at Mimi Kirk. This 73-year-old mother of four and grandmother of seven looks decades younger than her age and, more importantly, radiates youthful energy and joy—all things she attributes to her raw food, vegan diet. She was named PETA’s “Sexiest Vegetarian Over 50? in 2009, and recently published the book Live Raw: Raw Food Recipes for Good Health and Timeless Beauty. When I saw pictures of Mimi I was dying to learn more about her diet, not only because she looks so much younger than her years (though there’s that) but because she seems so damn happy and young at heart. Here’s what she had to say:

Do you take supplements? “Recently I’ve started taking vitamins D and B, but not very consistently.  Doctors don’t always check your D and B levels, but the older you get the harder it can be for your body to absorb D well, so it’s important to have that checked. I was tested and my D and B levels were right on the border of being low, so I started putting some liquid vitamin D in my smoothies and I take sublingual vitamin B, which is easier to absorb than a pill. But I would recommend checking with your doctor before you take anything. You really can get almost everything from your food if you manage it right.”

When and why did you go vegan? “I first became a vegetarian back in my early 30s, when people barely knew what that was. I had been meditating a lot and it made me very sensitive to everything, and one day when I was working as Mary Tyler Moore’s stand in I went to pick up lunch for us, and as I was driving back to the set I took a bite of my roast beef and thought I took a bite out of the back of my hand—I really realized that it was flesh and it didn’t feel right to me. I went home and told my kids that we were going to be vegetarians from then on. At first it was just about animals, but then I got educated about the health reasons to avoid animal protein and then I moved on to being vegan.  I’ve been vegetarian or vegan for the better part of 40 years.” So most people think of a vegan diet as very healthy, what made you take the extra step to go raw? “About four years ago, when I was 69, I found out that my blood pressure and cholesterol were up, and I was starting to get arthritic aches and pains. But I didn’t want to go on prescription drugs, so I started to think about raw food. I’d tried it in the past and hadn’t liked it, because I’m such a foodie and I hadn’t had great raw food. But I did a detox and I felt great, so I decided to go raw. It made a huge difference right away.  My cholesterol dropped 26 points, my blood pressure regulated, my arthritic pain went away and now I feel like I’m in my 20s.” Of course it’s not as important, but you look amazing for your age, for any age!  Do you attribute that to raw food? It was the funniest thing, when I first started this I went on a detox along with one of my daughters, and after four days of it I called her up and said, I swear that my teeth look whiter!  And from there on I noticed a tremendous change. My skin certainly does not look my age, I’d say the skin on my arm looks as good as that of a woman in her 30s.  Plus I lost about twenty pounds. I had gained weight, mostly by cooking a lot for my boyfriend, and I had a bunch of clothes in the

SpanishChef.net garage that I couldn’t fit into. But when I went raw that weight dropped off and I could wear my own clothes again, without worrying about calories. Before I started this I was losing hair, but when I went raw my hair got thicker than ever. My hairdresser said, “Look at all this new hair!” My nails are strong my teeth are spectacular.  But most importantly, my energy level shifted immediately.  I no longer get tired around 3 o’clock in the afternoon, and I truly feel like I’m in my 20s. Was it hard to go raw? “It was easy for me, because I had something motivating me to do it. I felt, ‘I’m in my 70s now and I want to be here for my grandkids and hopefully great-grandkids.’ For most people it’s hard to learn to fulfill cravings, so that’s why I wrote my book. I’m a real foodie, so I didn’t want to sacrifice the things I love, so I came up with raw dishes that satisfy the craving for Italian food, for Mexican, for bagels and lox.” What steps to you recommend for somebody who thinks they want to switch to a raw foods diet? “I would recommend you go gradually. The first step is to fix a green drink every morning, either a smoothie or a fresh juice. Even if you’re in a hurry, it’s not that hard to throw things in a blender. If you just do that, it’s going to change things for you.  I’ve seen it happen over and over and over, you start to feel the nutrients from that, and it will give you so much energy that it will become sort of addictive and you’ll want to take the next step.”  And it’s important to make it yourself, not buy it in a store? “The juice in the store is pasteurized, which kills the enzymes, so don’t bother with that. Depending on where you live you might

be able to buy fresh green juice at a juice bar, but you won’t find it at one of those smoothie chains. If you don’t want to invest in a juicer you can put raw vegetables in a blender and make a smoothie. I often do a mix of juice and smoothie—this morning I made green juice in the juicer and then I put it in the blender with mango and banana.” {The New York Times recently ran a series of smoothie recipes involving vegetables.} “During berry season I usually make a berry smoothie with my fresh juice, and often I’ll add goji berries and maca, which is great for hormone regulation.”

Have you converted your family and friends to the raw lifestyle? “I raised my kids vegetarian, and now one of my daughters is mostly raw and the other is a ‘flexitarian’—she’s a real foodie and a little more lenient, but she does eat a lot of raw food.  My two sons try to eat healthy, one less so than the other, but he does try to get the fresh juice in, and he knows that this is the way to eat when he needs it. I’ve also influenced friends and neighbours to eat more healthfully because I’ve brought raw dishes to parties and things so they realize how good it can taste. Plus they see that I have a tremendous amount of energy and still look good, and I think that that’s inspiring.”

So what should we do next? “Once you’ve made that commitment to yourself and are drinking your green juice in the morning, start having a big salad for lunch, then eat something cooked for dinner, something made with healthy, whole foods. At that point you’re eating close to 75% raw, which is a huge change, and helps a lot.  Then you might start to notice that when you eat cheese your allergies act up, or when you eat a big pasta dinner you might feel sluggish afterward, and you might decide to go all the way.  And I am not saying that everybody has to eat all raw, all the time—I do think it’s the best way to eat, but if you are doing just 75% raw you’re doing yourself a big favour.”

What else would you say to somebody who is thinking of making a change to more raw foods, or a healthier diet in general? “You have to make a commitment to your own health. Some people don’t want to know about this stuff because they don’t want to change, and it can be hard—if you’ve made food one way your entire life it’s hard to accept a new way of doing it. But isn’t it easier than being sick? People in my family have had cancer, diabetes, Parkison’s, and I’ve avoided all of that. My two sisters have both had cancer, one is overweight, one is on lots of drugs and doesn’t feel comfortable walking without the security of a walker. I don’t have any of my family’s health issues, and I swear by the raw food diet. But to commit to this you have to really love yourself, and take care of yourself the way you would a child or a loved one. What you put in your mouth should nourish you. Treat yourself like somebody else who you love.”

A lot of your recipes involve a dehydrator— what is that? “A dehydrator heats food to a low temperature that doesn’t destroy its enzymes. You don’t produce enough enzymes after 30, and while you can create them by mixing food with saliva, we usually don’t chew our food for as long as we should. So the dehydrator warms raw food—it’s important to realize that a raw food diet doesn’t mean a life of cold salads!

P ROCESSED F OODS O ffICIALLY L INKED TO A UTOIMMUNE D ISEASE T

he modern diet of processed foods, takeaways and microwave meals could be to blame for a sharp increase in autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, including alopecia, asthma and eczema.  A team of scientists from Yale University in the U.S. and the University of ErlangenNuremberg, in Germany, say junk food diets could be partly to blame. “This study is the first to indicate that excess refined and processed salt may be one of the environmental factors driving the increased incidence of autoimmune diseases,” they said. Junk foods at fast food restaurants as well as processed foods at grocery retailers represent the largest sources of sodium intake from refined salts. The Canadian Medical Association Journal sent out an international team of researchers to compare the salt content of 2,124 items from fast food establishments such as Burger King, Domino’s Pizza, Kentucky Fried Chicken, McDonald’s, Pizza Hut and Subway. They found that the average salt content varied between companies and between the same products sold in different countries. U.S. fast foods are often more than twice as salt-laden as those of other countries. While government-led public health campaigns and legislation efforts have reduced refined salt levels in many countries, the U.S. government has been reluctant to press the issue. That’s left fast-food companies free to go salt crazy, says Norm Campbell, M.D., one of the study authors and a blood-pressure specialist at the University of Calgary. Many low-fat foods rely on salt--and lots of it--for their flavour. One packet of KFC’s Marzetti Light Italian Dressing might only have 15 calories and 0.5 grams fat, but it also has 510 mg sodium--about 1.5 times as much as one Original Recipe chicken drumstick. (Feel like you’re having too much of a good thing? You probably are.) Bread is the No. 1 source of refined salt consumption in the American diet, according to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention. Just one 6-inch Roasted Garlic loaf from Subway--just the bread, no meat, no cheeses, no nothing--has 1,260 mg sodium, about as much as 14 strips of bacon.

How Refined Salt Causes Autoimmune Disease The team from Yale University studied the role of T helper cells in the body. These activate and ‘help’ other cells to fight dangerous pathogens such as bacteria or viruses and battle infections.

“It would be interesting to find out if patients with psoriasis can alleviate their symptoms by reducing their salt intake,” they said. “However, the development of autoimmune diseases is a very complex process which depends on many genetic and environmental factors.”

“These findings are an important contribution to the understanding of multiple sclerosis and may offer new targets for a better treatment of the disease, for which at present there is no cure.” Previous research suggests that a subset of these cells - known as Th17 cells - also play an important role in the development of autoimmune diseases. In the latest study, scientists discovered that exposing these cells in a lab to a table salt solution made them act more ‘aggressively.’ They found that mice fed a diet high in refined salts saw a dramatic increase in the number of Th17 cells in their nervous systems that promoted inflammation. They were also more likely to develop a severe form of a disease associated with multiple sclerosis in humans. The scientists then conducted a closer examination of these effects at a molecular level. Laboratory tests revealed that salt exposure increased the levels of cytokines released by Th17 cells 10 times more than usual. Cytokines are proteins used to pass messages between cells. Study co-author Ralf Linker, from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, said: ‘These findings are an important contribution to the understanding of multiple sclerosis and may offer new targets for a better treatment of the disease, for which at present there is no cure.’

It develops when the immune system mistakes the myelin that surrounds the nerve fibres in the brain and spinal cord for a foreign body. It strips the myelin off the nerves fibres, which disrupts messages passed between the brain and body causing problems with speech, vision and balance. Another of the study’s authors, Professor David Hafler, from Yale University, said that nature had clearly not intended for the immune system to attack its host body, so he expected that an external factor was playing a part. He said: “These are not diseases of bad genes alone or diseases caused by the environment, but diseases of a bad interaction between genes and the environment. Humans were genetically selected for conditions in sub-Saharan Africa, where there was no salt. It’s one of the reasons that having a particular gene may make African Americans much more sensitive to salt. Today, Western diets all have high salt content and that has led to increase in hypertension and perhaps autoimmune disease as well.” The team next plan to study the role that Th17 cells play in autoimmune conditions that affect the skin.

Refined, processed and bleached salts are the problem. Salt is critical to our health and is the most readily available nonmetallic mineral in the world. Our bodies are not designed to process refined sodium chloride since it has no nutritional value. However, when a salt is filled with dozens of minerals such as in rose-coloured crystals of Himalayan rock salt or the grey texture of Celtic salt, our bodies benefit tremendously for their incorporation into our diet. “These mineral salts are identical to the elements of which our bodies have been built and were originally found in the primal ocean from where life originated,” argues Dr. Barbara Hendel, researcher and co-author of Water & Salt, The Essence of Life. “We have salty tears and salty perspiration. The chemical and mineral composition of our blood and body fluids are similar to sea water. From the beginning of life, as unborn babies, we are encased in a sack of salty fluid.” “In water, salt dissolves into mineral ions,” explains Dr. Hendel. “These conduct electrical nerve impulses that drive muscle movement and thought processes. Just the simple act of drinking a glass of water requires millions of instructions that come from mineral ions. They’re also needed to balance PH levels in the body.” Mineral salts, she says, are healthy because they give your body the variety of mineral ions needed to balance its functions, remain healthy and heal. These healing properties have long been recognized in central Europe. At Wieliczka in Poland, a hospital has been carved in a salt mountain. Asthmatics and patients with lung disease and allergies find that breathing air in the saline underground chambers helps improve symptoms in 90 per cent of cases. Dr. Hendel believes too few minerals, rather than too much salt, may be to blame for health problems. It’s a view that is echoed by other academics such as David McCarron, of Oregon Health Sciences University in the US. He says salt has always been part of the human diet, but what has changed is the mineral content of our food. Instead of eating food high in minerals, such as nuts, fruit and vegetables, people are filling themselves up with “mineral empty” processed food and fizzy drinks.

Earthing and Detoxifying I

n my previous post, “The Smart Meters Hoax: Electromagnetic Fields Are Real And Dangerous To Your Health,” I was mainly talking about these terrible devices that are being installed throughout US, Canada, and Europe now and how this technology affects our health. Fortunately, there is more one can do for protection than to uninstall smart meters and reduce electromagnetic exposure coming from cell phones, microwaves, computers, etc. There are a few key elements that I believe can successfully address this issue and dramatically reduce negative effects.

Earthing In order to stay healthy we also have to be connected to the healing energy of the Earth, we just have to BE on the Earth! Humans have been doing it for millions of years, by walking, sleeping and practically being mostly on the ground, not in a glass building with 30 stories, surrounded by wires and cell phones. So, what is earthing? Multiple scientific studies involving biophysicists, electrophysiologists, medical doctors, and exercise physiologists have

produced fascinating evidence demonstrating that direct connection to the Earth’s ground energy has a powerful and positive influence on the body. Plastic or rubber soles insulate people from the natural electrical surface charge of the Earth known in the electrical world simply as “ground.” All electrical systems in our homes, businesses, and industries, are stabilized and protected by the Earth’s “ground.” New research has raised the possibility that this disconnect may actually contribute to chronic pain, fatigue, and poor sleep that plague so many people. The remedy for the disconnect and exposure to electromagnetic fields is simple.  Walk barefoot outdoors whenever possible and/ or sleep, work, or relax indoors in contact with conductive sheets or mats that transfer the energy to your body. People who do so on a regular basis say they sleep better, feel better, and have more energy during the day. Here you can buy the sheets and learn more about earthing: www.Earthing.com (For Canadian orders visit: www.EarthingCanada.ca) You can also watch below a video with Clinton Ober, author of Earthing, explaining the phenomenon and demonstrating how we get exposed to electromagnetic fields  every minute of our days and nights. http://tinyurl.com/d6d3bpw

Detoxing and Eating The Right Food For Your Metabolism Detox procedures are actually essential these days. We are bombarded from any direction with an arsenal of toxic substances, and electromagnetic fields are adding up to the dangerous concoction. Luckily, part of the genetic intelligence in every cell is the ability

to detoxify. If that was not the case, every cell in our body would die from autointoxication. But then how does the body become toxic and why would it need to detoxify ?  The answer is that in those people who need to detoxify, cells don’t have what they need in order to FUNCTION properly. Cells need raw materials – to chelate or pick up the toxins, energy - to move the toxins out of the cells, they have selective membrane permeability – the ability of cells to open and close their membranes appropriately, to let good things in and close to keep bad things out. But if your diet is not correct to meet your genetically-based requirements for nutrition, then none of these functions needed to detoxify will work properly. How should we detoxify our body and what can happen if we do? The greatest “detox procedure” anyone could ever do is to eat right for their unique metabolism or Metabolic Type. This is the first and most important thing, that will lead to balancing your body chemistry and seriously help with reversing health conditions and start the detox processes. Detox is just a step in the whole very complex process of natural healing; it is just a tool, not a “cure”. Detox shouldn’t take place without previously preparing your body to do so. A pretty good digestion, liver, kidney and adrenal function are all required  in order to handle the whole process well and use it to your benefit. Otherwise, if the rate of cellular detox exceeds the rate at which the organs of detox can eliminate toxins from the body, then there will be a backup in the blood stream, producing all the various symptoms of detox (constipation,

by Raluca Schachter WakingTimes.com

irritability, insomnia, fatigue, flu-like symptoms, headaches, etc). In this case, a very “good” thing has become “bad” due to the rate of change that is occurring. All that needs to be done in such a case is to start “cycling” – a procedure that means taking the specific supplements on and off for determined periods of time, until symptoms subside. Carefully observing all these subtle or pretty obvious signs the body is sending us on a daily basis is the core premise of true natural healing. A very important and specific supplement that I use in all health protocols now, once the person is ready to detox is called D-TOXOL. This unique and efficient supplement  is designed to help the body eliminate in a very natural way anything from radiation, EMF’s, plastics, rocket fuel residue, BPA, phthalates, hydrocarbons, heavy metals, medications, fluoride, preservatives, aspartame, MSG, pesticides, and many others. It’s a novel new supplement incorporating  focused detoxification and/or toxin blocking components in combination with a group of proven glutathione precursors and detoxification-organ support nutrients. As you can see, until the day companies that provide such technologies will also consider human health in the equation, there are solutions to protect ourselves and ways to get educated. _________________ Raluca Schachter is a passionate Nutritionist and Metabolic Typing Advisor®, with a background in both nutrition and communication/ PR.

Get the Dirt on Fulvic Acid

by Glennis Taylor BSc

I

s it possible to dislodge and remove those nasty heavy metals that continually accumulate in the body as we saunter through life? Sources of toxic heavy metals are everywhere. We breathe in exhaust fumes as we jog along the seawall. We drink water that is delivered so conveniently to our taps through copper pipes. We eat mercury contaminated fish and read glossy coloured newsprint that may contain lead. We eat from tin cans that may leach metals into the contents. These small amounts add up slowly and affect both young and old. Without going for chelation, is it possible to reduce our toxic load effectively? Yes it is… and fulvic acid is the ticket. Here’s the dirt! Microorganisms found in decaying plant matter, or humus, convert the dead matter into water soluble low molecular weight organic compounds known as fulvates or fulvic acid. The richest sources of fulvic acid are usually found in areas that were once lushly vegetative. In North America the richest deposit of fulvic acid is found deep under the orange soil of New Mexico which at one time was a densely vegetated area. Much of the fulvic acid can be traced back in time to the Upper Cretaceous period about 75 million years ago. There are sev-

eral areas around the globe that are sources of quality fulvic acid. Fulvic acid is one of the most effective free radical scavengers. Its strong antioxidant capacity is notable as well as its capacity to improve the absorption of other nutrients that are essential for good health. Metallic minerals are chelated by fulvic acid changing them into forms that are more bio-available at the cellular level, allowing for optimal utilization by the body. The body requires available minerals before vitamins can be metabolized properly. Mineral deficiency is prevalent in our society and may be responsible for many ailments we find today. There are over 60 easily assimilated minerals provided by fulvic acid. Fulvic acid helps to bring the body back into balance through mechanisms that allow deeper oxygenation, faster enzyme reaction times, and increased re-mineralization. Fulvic acid also reacts rapidly with radioactive materials that are then removed from the body through urine and faeces as are excess heavy metals that cause so many health concerns. Pesticide and herbicide residues stored in the body may also be reduced on a fulvic acid regimen. When fulvic acid is dissolved in water, it allows greater cell membrane permeability.

Mind Control via Cell Phone Towers

T

by David Jones

he day is now approaching in which government mind control technologies will be directed at you, your neighbours, and your loved ones. Every single day, equipment is being erected and installed in this country with the hidden purpose of exerting mind control over the entire population. Everywhere in this country (and overseas), ELF/microwave transmission towers are being erected. The antennae usually look like four slightly curved vertical plates about 2 feet in length and located in either 3 or 4 quadrants around the tower, two thirds up from the ground. Just look around, you’ll see them. And you’ll also notice more of them going up once you begin to pay attention. No one is saying anything, but you’re expected to presume that they’re for cell phones. (Do you really think that we need that much ‘cell phone’ transmission capability, every few blocks? Do you realize how very little energy is used by genuine cell phone usage? Yet these towers are capable of putting out levels of power that exceed cell phone requirements by a wide margin. These mind control technologies have been in place for a long time. It’s not an accident that the frequency band chosen for cell phone use just happens to match the second order waves that Wilhelm Reich discovered in the late 1940’s to effect thought transmission and allow the mind to be manipulated without the victim realizing it. Reich worked on this project secretly for the CIA for over 5 years, from 1947-1952, until he realized who the CIA was

This results in more effective transfer of nutrients into the cell and promotes optimal hydration and at the same time facilitates waste removal from the cell. This promotes a healthy transfer of substances in and out of the cell. As a powerful electrolyte, it is able to restore a healthy balance of electrolytes to damaged cells. As more research comes to light, electrical charge in living organisms seems to be one of the keys to health and vitality. By normalizing the electrical charge within the body, organ system functions are optimized. People generally report an increase in energy and a much improved sense of well-being when supplementing with fulvic acid. It may be an effective addition to a detox program, especially for heavy metals. Aches and pains

seem to be reduced. Reports of improvements in conditions such as tendonitis and fibromyalgia have been noted. Skin smoothness and suppleness may be enhanced on fulvic acid. Even digestive issues may respond to ingestion of these organic plant acids, possibly due to a change in microflora. The benefits fulvic acid can facilitate in the body are quite diverse due to the better oxygenation, electrolyte balance, hydration and cellular waste removal. The old saying about eating a peck of dirt in a lifetime may be a wise one after all. Now you have it......The Dirt!

planning to use the mind control on -the American people. He was outraged that he was deceived and used for such a treasonous motive and swore never to cooperate with the CIA, FDA, etc. again. Reich was covertly murdered in Federal prison in 1957, just a few weeks before he was due to be released, having been in prison for 2 years on a trumped up charge leading to a contempt of court citation. He was reported to have had a ‘heart attack’. He was strong as an ox. He was murdered two weeks before his parole board hearing. His last book, written in prison, was found to be ‘missing’ after his death and never returned to his family. A method was discovered to disable these ELF towers from exerting their mind control functions by placing a simple device known as an orgone generator within a radius of 1,300 feet of these towers. These microwave towers are used in conjunction with HAARP based technology to not only affect subliminal mind control influences, but also to control the weather (currently {2007}, the creation of artificially induced drought conditions are also greatly influenced by the populationreduction chemtrail spraying operations which take place daily over the skies in America and in many other countries) . Patrick Flannagan also recorded an interview with talk show host Jeff Rense on June 30, 2003 and offered important insights on how to counter electronic mind control being beamed to us from the electric wiring within our homes and from microwave towers.

Chi, Ki, Prana, Orgone : U

Because the eye gazes and catches no glimpse of the hand cannot feel it, it is called infinitesimal; it The Orgonite Revolution This area is not new to many, yet a surprise to others. One thing that resonates with many is that orgone technology gives a proactive approach to the heavily infected, polluted and infested environment we live in, not the least of which are chemtrails and electromagnetic soup. If we can not just protect ourselves, but actually CONVERT this negative entropy being rained on the human population into a positive force, that would be revolutionary on a major scale. That is a happy thought. And very empowering if true. Mind you, the human body-soul-spirit is the biggest transformer and converter there is for utilizing this same life force via conscious awareness and that’s our primary focus, but let’s take a look at this. In fact, as you research this subject you’ll find many testimonials of people’s lives being transformed from sad and depressed to happy and

hi, Ki, Prana, Orgone, Ether, the Universal Life Force – call it what you will. We all know an underlying energy beyond some confining definition exists and empowers and flows through everything. Mainstream science has consistently choked on recognizing this since to them it crosses into the metaphysical which they claim can’t be quantified. For me, this encapsulates the recalcitrant ignorance of the so-called “scientific approach” perfectly. But this is changing rapidly as previous defining lines of distinction are intellectually and vibrationally dissolving. Seemingly hidden Truths are now coming to the surface and perspectives are continuing to shift, despite the Controllers’ efforts to hold the illusion together. 

Known and Utilized for Ages

Many great pioneers in philosophy, spirituality, metaphysics and true science (meaning knowledge or “knowing”) have spoken to humanity about this seemingly ethereal resource, including those using powerful meditative, shamanic, psychedelic and other esoteric approaches. Today, with the exponential growth of alternative research and information rapidly approaching what’s loosely called the Singularity, even modern physicists are coming to paradigm shifting conclusions. Oddly enough, many still refuse to fully acknowledge the fact that this essence is an already known and experienced phenomenon that’s been utilized by spiritually advanced civilizations for millennia. A very humbling realization for a stubborn egghead, but a thrill for a true learner. And once you know, you know. It’s out, and won’t go back into the bottle no matter how hard they try.

A New Worldview Is Emerging Quantum physics in its drive to mechanistically dissect matter ever further in order to finally arrive at the ultimate elementary particle has finally reached a point where it is forced to question it’s own paradigm. Quantum physicists now question the stability of matter itself and seem to arrive at a concept where elementary particles are seen as mere perturbations “on the surface of an endless sea of energy” which some scientists have agreed to call “Zero point energy” or “Torsion Fields” (Kozyrev et al.). Don’t you all hear a few wise Yogis laugh through the millennia over so much foolishness and late dawning of truth? They knew it all along! I personally believe that the emerging new paradigm is characterised by a fusion of mystic knowledge and quantum physics. Do not expect to read that in the school and university textbooks yet, but you can smell it in the air. To sum it up: We are talking about a new

Page 14

world view that will finally enable us to integrate the paranormal and other observations that are not readily explained with the increasingly obsolete models of mid-20th century physics, and resolve the contradictions between Einstein’s relativity theory and quantum physics. 

Meet Wilhelm Reich

One little known pioneer in translating this life force, which he named Orgone, into a pragmatic resource for humanity was Wilhelm Reich. As you can expect, he was hounded, marginalized, maligned and very probably murdered, dying the day before parole while in a US federal prison. Again, for his “alternative views” that challenged the status quo of his day…as is almost always the case…in this current paradigm at least. Literally tons of his research work was destroyed as well. Of course, his research led to the weaponization of torsion fields, but who’s looking. Why the fuss? Think Nicolai Tesla, Royal Rife, Galileo, Socrates, etc. The status quo does not take challenging well, unless it’s one of their own, carefully bringing in a new control system with a strain of “new” truth to substantiate it and make it appear changing. That’s at least one reason why this deserves researching. Same symptoms. But even more so, some fascinating understandings. And out of it came a profoundly simple and powerful technology that deserves looking into.

An Introduction To Orgone Technology Reich was anathema to his contemporaries because of his orgone research. He felt he had found an underlying force so profound that everything else paled in comparison. The second observation that Wilhelm Reich made was the following: Organic matter attracts and holds orgone energy while metallic matter attracts and immediately repels orgone. He designed his orgone accumulators following these two principles, and the same principles were active in Mesmer’s barrels.  Mesmer was not aware of these characteristics of life force. A Reichian orgone accumulator is a box that has alternating layers of organic and metallic materials. The outermost layer is organic

while the innermost layer is metallic. As a consequence there will be a flow of orgone energy from the outside of the orgone box to the inside. The life energy inside the accumulator will become stronger and stronger. According to Reich, a thermometer on the inside of the orgone box shows a consistently a higher temperature. This fact contradicts the law of entropy. According to the second law of thermodynamics the inside of the box should have the same temperature as the outside. However, when Reich showed this experimentation to Einstein, Einstein apparently recognized some significant and quite obvious flaws in Reich’s original experimentation and, instead of making him aware of this and examining other experimental results, for some reason or another he found it more convenient to brush him off for some unknown reasons. Wilhelm Reich has also made another important observation: An electroscope discharges much faster in an atmosphere that has a high orgone potential. This characteristic allowed Reich to measure the strength of fields of life energy. If we consider this characteristic of life force and the fact that the inside of an orgone box is warmer than its surroundings, we must realize that there is an “interface” between the space time that physics describes and life energy. Wilhelm Reich was a medical doctor. Therefore he used orgone energy for healing purposes. This brought medical traditionalists on the scene with the usual consequences. Reich went on to use his discoveries to build devices that he called “cloud busters.” He used these devices to influence the weather: by forming clouds and by destroying them. Reich also discovered a variation of orgone that was stagnant. He called this energy deadly orgone, or DOR. He used cloud busters to remove clouds of DOR that are hostile to life.

empowered ones. It’s quite remarkable. Orgonite has also been proven to drastically help plant growth in many cases. Who knows what it can affect in the human body? It’s also demonstrably effective for blocking harmful emfs from cell phones and cell towers and has been documented busting up chemtrails. Hmm. I’m still learning about this technology but for one its pure simplicity resonates with me, and I’ve integrated it into my life, as well as done quite a bit of “gifting” myself. Heck, I’ll do whatever I can to reverse this flow from the PTBs. (Other tools such as scalar devices are also available to mitigate EMFs.)

What Is Orgonite?


Utilizing the Life Force

f it, it is called elusive; Because the ear cannot hear it, it©s called rarified; because t©s rising brings no heat, it©s sinking no darkness. It is called CHI. - Tao Te Ching Orgonite® is a word that was invented by Karl Hans Welz for a material he made as a variation on the technology of Wilhelm Reich. Reich identified an energy which he called orgone and discovered it could be manipulated using layers of metal and organic material. He used things like wood and cotton for his organic materials and iron sheets and other metals as the metallic components. Welz’s orgonite® simply brought a modern material into play acting as the organic component polyester resin. Orgonite® is simply a combination of many metal particles suspended in a resin matrix. Because there are often many metal particles the energy flow within orgonite® tends to be very dynamic making it pretty powerful stuff. Orgonite® was taken to the next level by Don Croft who added crystals to help convert DOR or Dead(ly) ORgone into POR or Positive Orgone.

The Why: How much you understand the why of orgonite® will depend on how much you are up to date with the front wave of scientific thought about the very nature of life as we know it. Finally, science has caught up with the wisdom of the shamans and have concluded that everything that we perceive as solid is actually vibrating energy. If you understand this you will understand that we can be negatively affected by energy that is disharmonious with life (DOR) in the same way as a staggering drunk would affect the flow of a busy New York sidewalk particularly if he was walking the other way! If you extend this analogy further and visualize your life and well-being as a series of busy sidewalks then the modern world, its technology, and inhabitants are like a series of bars spewing staggering drunks into your path 24/7.

DOR and POR – Entropy and Disentropy One concept that emerges is that of entropy. A profoundly important concept in my opinion, it explains the PTB’s efforts to break down the human condition in every sphere to it’s most basic level since natural energetic forces tend to produce creativity, bounty and opportunity, while Controllers want the opposite. Entropy, first of all, covers a wide range of fields in its application, including

thermodynamics, mechanics, communications, economics, information science and technology, linguistics and even music. For humanity it is not a good thing. Entropy is the principle of reduction of complexity, thereby liberating the stored energy. This takes place when we burn fossil fuels, split the atom or basically any technological process that mankind has recently come up with. Entropy is the idea of destroying something in order to utilise it or rather a minimal aspect of it! We can find that the scientific paradigm of mainstream 20th century thinking understands only processes that are based on entropy. The ultimate idea of entropy is death because at some point in the future all differences in energy levels (potentials) must necessarily be depleted. The concept of orgone postulates a principle that is opposed to entropy, a creative organising force. This force can be equated with life. Strangely, although our well equipped and funded corporate and state scientists can describe many intricate processes in living organisms the miracle of life itself must and does remain an enigma to them. We find the idea of two opposing tendencies in the universe in the old eastern teachings of Yin and Yang but also in Sigmund Freud’s (an early Mentor of Wilhelm Reich) Eros and Thanatos. Learning to harness the creative power of Orgone will lead to an understanding of what is now called “free energy”, a concept ridiculed by entropic science because it contradicts the “2nd Law of Thermodynamics”. (read 2nd Law of Entropy) 

Here is Something about the Gifting Movement from www.orgonite.info

Orgonite: A proven effective solution. This is a purely informational site about orgonite, a simple compound anyone can create in their backyard with fairly inexpensive, widelyavailable materials which balances ambient energy by turning the negative energy into positive energy, with many easily-confirmed effects. Orgonite does this continuously, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without electricity.

Quick Facts About Orgonite: • • • • • • • • •

Simple. Easy to make. Works continuously. Turns negative energy into positive energy. Purifies the atmosphere, detoxifies water, ends drought. Helps plants grow better, repel pests & requires less water. Mitigates harmful effects of EMF radiation. Disarms and repels predatory forms of life. Inspires a pleasant demeanor and balanced, happier moods. Frequently remedies insomnia and chronic nightmares. Helps awaken your innate psychic senses.

What Else You Should Know This is not a joke, or a game, or an advertisement. This is not a business opportunity. We don’t want your money. Orgonite vendors exist only to serve those who are not able to or interested in making orgonite themselves. Orgonite does not require belief or conscious intention in order to work. This is not a religion, a cult, or a product of disinformation of any kind. This has nothing whatsoever to do with the “new age movement.” We have found that tactical deployment of orgonite (e.g., “gifting”) by throwing, hiding or burying it near sources of electromagnetic radiation or other pollution or in polluted areas, such as near cellphone/TV/radio towers, power plants, in lakes, rivers and ocean harbors, has a powerful and noticeable effect on the area. The skies get clearer and return to the deep blue color you remember from your childhood, complete with normal puffy white clouds. Water pollution levels decrease precipitously, as documented in Toronto, Ontario. Drought conditions are reversed, as documented in South Africa and in Death Valley, California. The general mood or “vibe” in the area improves dramatically as people are kinder, happier and more easy-going. Neighbors either become friendlier or suddenly leave town. A renewed sense of hope begins to pervade the community. We have seen this effect in our own communities as a direct result of tactical orgonite gifting, and have found it truly self-empowering, but don’t take our word for it. Try it yourself and see what happens! There are those of us involved with this “gifting movement” who believe that the proliferation of electromagnetic pollution, cellphone towers and chemtrails are not an accident, but are intentional acts of malfeasance by the parties who seek to benefit or profit from inflicting illnesses upon the populace. We don’t ask that you believe us, or subscribe to our beliefs. What we do ask is that you help combat the pollution that is wreaking so much harm throughout our

communities around the world. We ask you to contribute to the health and well-being of your friends, family and neighbors by following the simple steps outlined on this site (www.orgonite. info), regardless of whether you agree with our personal opinions and convictions. We ask that you follow the instructions here and seek your own personal confirmation of the effectiveness of orgonite. 

Does Orgonite Really Work?

There are many ways to demonstrate the efficacy of orgonite. We have undertaken countless orgonite gifting expeditions on the African continent and photographically documented often dramitic changes, visible cloud changes, the dissolution of chemtrails, weather changes,  the stopping of droughts. We consider the sum total of our orgonite gifting work as a body of evidence Other observations include increased plant growth on farms and in gardens of orgonite users. Various systematic plantgrowth experiments have shown that orgonite prompts the growth of abundant healthy biomass which could make it an important part of the solution to our current worldwide food problems . Guess which sample was grown with orgonite? Yeah right! And it produced 3 times the biomass in the same time and much healthier looking too!

Conclusion Take a look for yourself. Pretty cool stuff and gets you thinking. One thing you can’t deny, there’s a fabulous life force we need to tune into and utilize for the betterment of humanity. The entire human body is a conductor of energy. We’re fundamentally fractal crystalline structures with all sorts of receptors and generators, including our powerful DNA. That such a simple device could enhance our lives doesn’t surprise me. Look what crystals can do, or the power of sound. Light waves can heal. It’s all energy forms from the same underlying cosmic source. It’s ours to discover and learn to use responsibly any tools necessary for the healing and empowerment of our Universal environment at any and every level. This technology is worth looking at and then decide for yourself. Be empowered, however you can. Stay open to new sources and go with your heart.

7 Gateways into the Matrix

by Mike Bundrant

NaturalNews.com

T

his article defines the psychic gateway into the matrix of illusion that we live in. The illusion is a threat. From within it, we unconsciously seek out destruction and fool ourselves into believing it is OK. The destruction happens on an individual and global basis. The bigger problem is, we actively hide the facts from ourselves through amazing feats of mental gymnastics. This is why it is nearly impossible to convince anyone what it really going on in the world - or within the walls of their home - or inside their own mind. The illusion is pervasive and overwhelming. The seven facts that follow are the result of months of work searching the lost archives of psychology and philosophy - obscure papers you’ve never seen in out-ofprint volumes, written by people you have never heard of. These heroes should be household names, but they have been deleted by modern mental health - but that is a longer story that predates World War II. Below I use examples of how the illusion affects individuals, but you will see how it applies to the entire population. Please read slowly and carefully when you have time and space to absorb it. Some people need to reread the facts and storyline several times before it begins to make sense. I have tried to distill it down as far as I can, write in layman’s terms and keep it as brief as possible. By the way, you won’t see this until you realize it applies to you. I have had to work on myself consistently for months now, opening my own eyes so that I can pass this information along. It has been the most liberating experience of my life and I continue to work at it daily. I hope you see it, too. See the gateway. See the exit. That’s how it works.

1. When you were born, you could not tell the difference between truth and falsehood Children do not have truth/falsehood filters. Whatever parents tell children, they not only believe, but anticipate and act upon. It doesn’t matter how far from reality these “facts” are. This is how Santa Claus manages to stick around. When kids believe in Santa, they behave accordingly. They write letters to Santa, wait up at night to get a glimpse, leave out cookies on Christmas Eve, try not to be on the naughty list and so on. We act on what we experience as true.

2. In reality, you learned many things that were false - and you made those things pleasurable

is no point in thinking for yourself. Maybe you learned that it is useless to try to succeed. Perhaps you learned that you do not fit in. Let’s say you were taught that you weren’t worth your parents’ time. When you needed help, they were busy. When you wanted to play, they weren’t interested. When you were proud of yourself, they dismissed you.

3. You now live the lies as if they were true Modern culture encourages older children to let go of their harmless belief in Santa Claus. Most parents are sensitive enough and comfortable guiding their children through the process. Modern culture offers no encouragement or process to let go of the harmful lies you were told. When you think about it, people might be better off believing in Santa for life than believing they are worthless as a person for life. Still, there is no rite of passage, no method and virtually no mention that young adults should examine beliefs related to their upbringing. Worse, extraordinarily few people exist on this planet who know how to help others identify and let go of the lies they are living. So, as an adult, you are now living the lie that you are worthless (this is just one example). You treat yourself the way your parents treated you. You don’t take care of yourself, respect yourself or give yourself the time and sacrifice necessary to create the life you want. You act on the lie. You don’t care what you eat or what goes into your body. You don’t make time for yourself. You find it hard to accept compliments. You don’t keep commitments to yourself. You are uncomfortable around people with high self-esteem, etc... Worse, you find a strange, unexplainable pleasure or personal familiarity in treating yourself this way. This only adds shame to the mix.

4. The lies you live are threatening, painful and embarrassing Here’s why letting go of lies is so difficult. If you are living a lie, you probably don’t want to admit it. The lie you are living isn’t pretty. Who wants to face the perceived ugliness and pain at the core of their being? No one wants to appear weak or worthless. Everyone is putting their best foot forward and burying the unmentionables. Your ego does not want to see the truth!

5. So, you hide the lies from yourself

Enter the first major, hard-to-believe glitch in the program. If you learned only helpful or harmless things as a child, you’d be set up for a lifetime of independence and success. Sadly, you were taught many things that are false. Here’s the mind-blower: You turned these falsehoods into pleasures. I almost hate to be the one to put this to you, but it is true. Children cannot filter out falsehood and they make perceived truth pleasurable. If you did not make truth pleasurable, then you would never act on it. When you are taught that a lie is true, then seeking the lie becomes right and familiar, even if the lie guides you into an early grave. This combination can turn your whole world upside down. It may be the number one human vulnerability; the key to our undoing. On a personal level, perhaps you learned that you are not worth anyone’s time. Perhaps you discovered that there

Your campaign to hide the painful lie-you-believe-istrue is wholesale. You hide the lie by setting out to prove your worth to the world, as if you could deny the lie by worldly success. You ignore your feelings. You look down on “weak” or “unimportant” people. You avoid intimacy, unconsciously fearing that if someone were to get to know you, they’d disapprove. If someone suggests in any way that you might be mistaken or to blame for something, you get defensive. You avoid at all costs any hint that you might be less than you portray yourself. The bitter irony is that all this is totally unnecessary. You are not worthless. You never were. You only believed the lie and now act upon it regularly, at times getting a strange satisfaction from it.

6. Now you are stuck doing things you hate for reasons you do not understand All this leads to an incredible bind. You are strangely attracted to being less than - it is familiar territory for you. All the ways you act upon this belief are troubling, but the illusion is so thick that you don’t know where to begin to figure it all out. You set goals that should improve your life, then sabotage those goals because you lean heavily toward that attachment to being less than. You know you should not eat junk, smoke junk, drink junk, do junk, treat yourself like junk, but you do. You understand the consequences of such behaviours, but do not seem to care. In fact, you are oddly invested in bringing more junk upon yourself.

7. You resist solutions to your problem When real solutions present themselves, you reject them. When people try to help, you become offended and pretend you have no problem. You even judge others who have obvious problems to move attention away from your own (Reality TV is a good vehicle for this). It is entirely possible for you to stare real solutions in the face, admit they are solutions, then proceed to do the opposite and resent anyone who calls you on your irresponsible behaviour. You live the lie, take pleasure in the lie, fear solutions to the lie, don’t know who you would be without the lie and keep all this from yourself with amazing agility.

Perfect prey for big pharma Doesn’t this set up create perfect candidates for drugs? Corporate power structures love to prey upon our struggle by offering solutions that do not require us to dig deep. Take a pill. You’ll feel better. Kick the can down the road. Just don’t leave the matrix and begin to think for yourself. Living inside the matrix leaves us attached to what we hate - and sometimes we even enjoy it. It’s a twisted set up that leaves millions of people, each and every day, scratching their heads and wondering why they do what they do. Digging deep is the only solution. Do not be afraid.

5 Ways to Escape the Matrix

by Sigmund Fraud

T

he human mind is easily programmed, and human behaviour is largely autonomous once the sub-conscious has a suggestion of what to do. By default, people seem inclined to conform to the ideas, environment and behaviours around them, at least as a means of survival and of fitting in. Unless an individual takes charge of their own mind and their own behaviour, most people are content to follow along with what other people are doing, even if that means doing something self-destructive. As we grow, we learn how to play and interact with others, and we learn how others react to us. We begin to develop an understanding of which behaviour is acceptable and which is not, and if we are paying attention, we realize that there is a subtle system of rewards and punishments involved in social interaction. Adherence to this system is what keeps society together, and depending on what rewards and punishments appeal to us, we choose which ideas and behaviours to conform to and comply with. As a result, different societal roles become open to us. The new rebel then, the new hero, is someone, anyone, who combats the staleness of a decaying society by looking at the areas in our lives most in need of repair and then, deliberately, does not do what the conformist majority is doing. This is the thoughtful person who applies the knowledge and information we have available today in the pursuit of living in creative ways that defy the herd and defend life and liberty. In no particular order, here are the top five ways to practice non-conformity in the world that we have created for ourselves – the matrix of selfdestruction.

1. Monetary Non-conformity The human race is enslaved to a corrupt and inflationary monetary system. To act as a balance to this, any opportunity to conduct life without using the dollar and the credit system is a stunning act of non-conformity. By practicing trade, barter and local exchange, and using alternative currencies whenever possible, a practical statement is made in support of an alternative to central bank tyranny and manipulation. Most importantly, however, is the simple decision to spend less overall and live without consumer debt

2. Shun the Materialistic and the Entertainment Driven Lifestyle The consumption of consumer goods in our world has grown to dangerous proportions, and no matter your political bent, you can’t deny the existence of the plastic island gaining mass in the Pacific Ocean. To be realistic about one’s true needs and to consume less “stuff” makes one stand out as a non-conformist in today’s culture. Much of this consumerism is part of a lifestyle of entertainment that we have developed in recent decades. We seem to value being entertained more than anything else, and we will do anything, and incur any debt, in order to get that which entertains and distracts us. Choosing a non-consumeristic,

WakingTimes.com non-entertainment driven lifestyle is important act of disobedience to the norm.

an

3. Health Rebel The truth about the condition of American health is ugly, and clearly something is wrong with the conformist ideas of diet and health. From horse meat (substituted for cow meat), to high-fructose corn syrup, to GMOs, the conformist diet is deathly harmful to our wellbeing. To continue on with this unhealthy lifestyle is self-destructive, and to buck this trend simply means to take care of yourself properly, as we all should be doing any ways. Taking care of the body is easy and enjoyable, and each step towards health brings with it a renewed outlook on life. Taking control of diet, finding some enjoyable type of exercise, and being courageous enough to try out alternative, non-pharmaceutical modalities of healing when possible, are, oddly enough, all one has to do in order to stand out as a health non-conformist.

4. Re-Education The quality of the future can be seen in the quality of our youth, and the current models of building quality people seem to be falling short. Trying out new modalities of education for our children is an inspiring way to work towards a better vision for the future. Green schooling, homeschooling and even un-schooling children offers hope for something different from the next generation. With access to unlimited educational resources via the Internet, almost anyone can educate themselves in almost any field, and so the re-education of the individual is an act of great non-conformity.

5. Experience-Based Spirituality The nature of personal spirituality itself is evolving in these transformative times as people have access to a vast assortment of ideas, philosophies, wisdom traditions, substances, and dogmas. The non-conformist of today explores practices and ideas that work best to induce direct experience, following intuition to develop a connection to the sacred part of humanity, which is so routinely trampled in our hectic world. Finding inner peace is critical to creating a world free from toxic effects of collective fear. There is a war being waged against the conscience and consciousness of the average person, and seeking direct, personal spiritual experience and connection to the great mystery is the way to prevail. The normal, conformist modality of human behaviour seems to be contributing to and exacerbating the problems of this world, rather than helping to eradicate them or working to alleviate suffering. To assist in the collective shift toward a means of living and being that sustains life rather than ensures self-destruction is as easy as practicing non-conformity whenever possible.

Managing Public Perceptions of Fukushima A

fter the nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki the world became aware that exposure to radiation could cause sickness and death. However, the United States government (and all the rest of ‘em. Ed.) was able to limit this awareness through the careful managing of public perceptions. It was the prompt burst of gamma radiation from the detonation of a nuclear weapon that caused the radiation sickness among the hibakusha, the survivors of the nuclear attacks claimed US experts. This prompt burst lasted only seconds following the moment of detonation. The fact that people continued to live in Hiroshima & Nagasaki after the attacks seemed to reinforce this belief. The truth is that even before these attacks, after the Trinity Test in July 1945 Manhattan Project employees had traced the deposit of downwind radioactive fallout in the area surrounding the test site. Cardboard boxes made from strawboard from a field over 1,000 miles away in Illinois that had been contaminated with fallout from the Trinity Test had blurred film later packed in the boxes by the Eastman Kodak company. The US managed to keep awareness of

The chair of the AEC, Lewis Strauss, publicly declared that the Marshall Islanders were “well and happy.”  The Japanese fishermen, he conceded, had experienced a few minor problems; but, in any case, he stated falsely, they “must have been well within the danger area.”  Privately, he was more caustic. The Lucky Dragon, he told the White House press secretary, was really a “Red spy outfit,” a component of a “Russian espionage system.”  At the request of Strauss, the CIA investigated this possibility and categorically denied it. Nonetheless, Strauss continued to maintain that the irradiation of the Lucky Dragon ‘was no accident,’ for the captain of the vessel must have been “in the employ of the Russians.”  He also told authors to ignore the contention of the “propagandists” that a crew member of the vessel had died of radiation exposure. Such efforts to control public perception had worked well in the past, but the actual sickness of the Lucky Dragon crew and the real death of its chief radio operator Aikichi Kuboyama proved more than Strauss’ lies could obscure. However, as before this radiation tragedy, the

The public was being “protected” from the truth because it was assumed that the truth would make them panic, and this was deemed far more dangerous than exposure to radioactivity. Nuclear power plant accidents, and leaks of radiation at production plants and mills that feed into the nuclear power and nuclear weapon complexes, are always accompanied by the controlled misinforming of the public, a herding if you will, of the public into the desired response. downwind fallout relatively secret for almost ten years. That ended with the Bravo Test at Bikini Atoll in 1954. Bravo tested the first deliverable H-bomb and produced such an immense amount of downwind radioactive fallout that its presence could not be managed or denied. That doesn’t mean the US did not work feverishly to both manage and deny awareness of fallout. The Bravo cloud engulfed hundreds of fishing boats located outside of the protective exclusionary zone, but one boat in particular, the Lucky Dragon #5 (the Daigo Fukuryu Maru) would be so contaminated that it became impossible for the US to control perceptions of what had happened to the boat and crew. Thirteen days after the Bravo test the boat pulled into port in Yaizu, Japan with the entire crew suffering from radiation sickness, one of whom would die weeks later from his exposure. Until that day the US had succeeded in keeping a very tight lid on awareness of the radiation disaster, even though whole populations of downwind atolls in the Marshall Islands had all been exposed and evacuated (many military personnel were also exposed). The simple fact of the contaminated and sick crew of the Lucky Dragon brought awareness of what had happened in the Marshall Islands to the world’s attention. Responding immediately, and strictly focused on containing information and awareness, the US Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) feverishly denied the obvious. AEC Chairman Lewis Strauss first claimed that the crew was sick because of a “chemical” reaction of undersea coral in the explosion and not exposure to radioactivity. As the wonderful historian of worldwide antinuclear movements

Lawrence Wittner reports:

modus operandi of those working with both nuclear weapons and nuclear power plants has been to follow this game plan every time that an exposure of civilians to radioactivity has occurred. The last two years since the nuclear disaster Fukushima Daiichi has been a stunning example of this strategy in operation. Fukushima Daiichi #1 began what would become a full meltdown in the first hour after the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck Eastern Japan on March 11, 2011. Units #2 and #3 would begin their meltdowns within sixteen hours. All three were to fully melt within a few days of the disaster. For those who understood nuclear power plants this was obvious and undeniable by the third or fourth day. Yet TEPCO, and the government of Japan (GOJ) would claim that there were no meltdowns for almost three months. They issued statements that they believed “two inches” or “four inches” of the fuel rods “may” have melted. These were lies; fully self-conscious lies. These lies were assumed to be “necessary” to protect the public. Accurate information about the status of the plants, and the presence and direction of radioactive plumes spewing from the plants in a series of dramatic explosions, were not considered “necessary” to protect the public. The public was to be managed, even when the nuclear power plants themselves no longer could be managed. The public was being “protected” from the truth because it was assumed that the truth would make them panic, and this was deemed far more dangerous than exposure to radioactivity. Nuclear power plant accidents, and leaks of radiation at production plants and mills that

Continued from previous page feed into the nuclear power and nuclear weapon complexes, are always accompanied by the controlled misinforming of the public, a herding if you will, of the public into the desired response. This response can be characterized by the term “obedience” to whatever beliefs the authorities find most desirable. While internalizing alphaemitting radionuclides may sow disease inside of the bodies of the people near to the accident, this danger is ignored by authorities who instead focus on the successful internalizing of the desired beliefs and narratives of the corporations and governmental bodies in charge. In the case of the repeated lies by TEPCO and the GOJ about there having been meltdowns, the strategy was clear. For two weeks the attention of the world was focused on the worsening nuclear crisis in Japan. During that time of supremely heightened attention they managed to keep the word “meltdown” off of the front pages of the world’s newspapers. “No meltdowns” they lied. When they finally admitted that there had been three full meltdowns—almost three months later—the headlines of the articles reporting this were printed on page 14, or page 20, not on page 1. This was a public relations success for TEPCO and the GOJ. It was seen as supporting the value of Japanese goods and investment in Japan. Clearly the goal of protecting property

and of managing perceptions was prioritized above the goal of telling people the truth or of better protecting their health. In July of 2012 video of teleconferences held in the early days of the crisis were released by TEPCO under public pressure. A report from the Yomiuri Shimbun (translated by the EX-SKF blog) shows this mechanism in operation: When [experts] were pointing to the possible hydrogen explosion of Reactor 3 [i.e. before Reactor 3 exploded], then-Chairman Tsunehisa Katsumata is heard on the phone with TEPCO’s senior management, “It is a judgement call whether it is OK to disturb citizens. If I’m asked about it (possibility of hydrogen explosion) in the next press conference, I will deny it, and say it is not possible.” Disturbing citizens with information was not desirable even while some of those citizens were being disturbed by exposure to radioactivity from the plumes of the explosion at Reactor 3 a day later. When defenders of the nuclear industry make claims such as, “thousands died in the earthquake and tsunami, but no one has died because of the nuclear accident,” they are deceiving you. They know that the deaths that result from these exposures do not happen immediately. The public health affects will

unfold over decades. The most severe health effects from Chernobyl have been seen in the children of people who were exposed to radioactivity when they were infants or in the womb. Claims like this are used to manage public perceptions. While they are technically true, they lead to mistaken understandings. Sadako Sasaki, the girl exposed to radioactivity in the nuclear attack on Hiroshima who’s story of trying to fold 1,000 origami cranes before she died is known worldwide, did not die from her exposure a year later, she developed leukemia and died ten years later (she was 2 at the time of her exposure). When the earthquake struck some people living on the coast got into their cars and drove inland. They understood enough about the connection between coastal earthquakes and the threat of tsunamis to know that a clock was ticking. Most of those people lived. They may have had trouble, may have damaged their cars while fleeing or even injured themselves, but fleeing was the key to survival. Everyone living along the coast should have been educated to understand this connection. Everyone should be now. The same is true for nuclear “incidents.” You have to assume when you hear that a nuclear incident has happened that you are not being informed of what has really happened—you are being managed. At best you are being told 5% – 10% of the truth. When you hear of a nuclear incident

near to where you live, flee first, decide if that was the right behaviour later. If you are wrong you may be embarrassed. If you stay and you are wrong the damage will be worse than any embarrassment. So long as we remain in a world in which nuclear power plants are operating near to us, we must learn to respond OURSELVES to the first sign of danger. Like an earthquake when you live near the coast, learn to understand the first signs of impending possible danger and respond. The history of nuclear accidents show that the protection of the public is not the first response of authorities. The protection of property (the investment of the power company and its stock price), and of their own position is the first response of authorities. Nuclear power plants were not built for the public good. They were all built for private profit. Anything that generates waste that remains dangerous for 4,000 generations (Jesus lived 80 generations ago, for contrast) is not being done in the public’s interest. Those who built them have an investment in maintaining their short-term value. We have an interest in the health and wellbeing of our communities. We cannot rely on the nuclear complex, government and industry (and supporting academic and media institutions) to protect us before their investments and their own position. We must rely on each other. We must educate ourselves and protect our communities.

The Butterfly Effect Continued from page 6

Just as Bradbury wrote in his story, very small changes can yield some extremely big results.  As is becoming more apparent by the day, we are the ones we’ve been waiting for to clean this mess up, so we’d better all start batting our wings like crazy to stoke up the winds of change.  We know we cannot rely upon the previous generation to save the world because when they had their chance they blew it. It would just be wrong on so many levels to flush the mess down stream to the next generation, so that pretty much leaves us... those of both the previous and next generations who are spiritually awake, to be the agents of change.  If not now, when?  If not Us, Who? The only map we need for this new world resides within our hearts.  It will tell us which is true and which is a lie, and it will always lead us in the right direction if we will just listen.  Our hearts tell us the truth all the time: but as it so often happens, maybe that truth isn’t always in alignment with the self deceptions we choose to live with so we subconsciously bury it.  This is the reason so many people are shallow breathers, because when we take in a full breath, fully extending the diaphragm, it somehow awakens those sleeping memories we avoid, and they stir around a bit, distracting us.  So we have learned to avoid discomfort by only using the top half of our lungs.  That is something else our dark overlords use against us, our universal aversion to emotional trauma.  They use it to exploit and control us on multiple levels.  They reinforce our self deceptions and their own negative conditioning by manipulating our aversion to emotional trauma.  That’s why so much of what

passes for entertainment these days seems to rely heavily on violence & trauma of all kinds: Psychic numbing,  Conditioning,  Programming.  We are in the kill jar and sucking up the fumes!  We need to snap out of it as a species and take a pro-active approach to our collective survival.  We need to unplug from their TV wasteland and their electronic grid with its smart meters & Orwellian surveillance.  We need to wake up and smell the chloroform before the lid goes back on the jar. As we gaze around and see the extent to which Earth is being stripped of resources, poisoned, & terra-formed; we cannot help but wonder what sort of fate awaits us in the overall agenda if we continue to do nothing?  Here’s a clue.  The same people who dreamed up GMO foods & chemtrails have also quietly been getting patents on the very genes that comprise our DNA!  They want to own & control our behaviour & our children.  By genetic engineering, nano-technology and implants they seek to transform humanity into a more docile and controllable product.  This trans-human agenda is the driving force behind many of the more bizarre things going on right under our noses and over our heads, and we can no longer afford the luxury of pretending we do not know something is terribly wrong here, and has been for a very long time.  It’s the old boiling frog syndrome that works so well.  “They” always start small, and innocuous at first, like the drone program for example.  Almost nobody in America protested the introduction of drones on the battleground, or even their ethical implications.  That would have been the time for public outcry & indignation, but we remained silent.  Nowadays the damned things are infesting our skies and

society to the point where people are now asking publicly whether or not the president has the authority to kill citizens on American soil with drones.  He doesn’t need the authority, he has the drones!  And, because WE said nothing each time the program grew bigger, there is now no way to stop or even reverse it.  Our collective silence gave them our tacit approval, and it will be no different with the trans-human agenda.  Because we allowed them to introduce GMO foods and other pernicious DNA damaging elements into our food chain, they will now continue that program to its unholy fruition.  I was going to add, unless we act, to that last sentence, then it occurred to me that it might just be too late.  Because we failed to resist with sufficient vigour when we first saw these dystopian programs beginning, they have now gained all the momentum necessary to fully manifest in time to deny our group destiny and keep us below the threshold of spiritual evolution.  That is what’s at stake here, our destiny, evolution... our future.  Back in the days of the Vietnam war Americans filled the streets to protest in such numbers that they brought entire cities to a standstill for hours at a time.  If we could manage a turnout like that over a dirty little war, where is everyone now that we really need them, when everything is at stake?  Good question, eh?  We have been drugged, poisoned, programmed and intimidated into remaining silent because the powers that be also saw those many thousands of protestors filling the streets 45 years ago; and they knew that kind of unity could actually defeat them, and their agenda...and therefore must be removed from the equation.  We have now been marginalized to the point where we don’t present much of a threat anymore.  We

604-677-0760

are docile, medicated and have cable TV ~ and so many shiny toys and gadgets to keep our minds full of anything but critical thought.  They say it’s difficult to get someone to see something when their livelihood depends on them ignoring it. The way things are going I am beginning to wonder if we will choose to see these things even when it’s our survival at stake and not just our income.  We have been conditioned and intimidated into actually supporting those who actively seek our ultimate descent into slavery... we really gotta quit doing that.   The way I see things, we might just have an opportunity to escape the kill jar before the lid is clamped down, maybe...  Like I said, we have to unplug from the system & the grid, and then turn their own tactics against them; “death by a thousand cuts” which begins with our united refusal to do anything which benefits the overlords.  If we wish to effect great change during this age of Aquarius we had best start flapping our wings to set those winds of change in motion, otherwise we are likely to end up under glass with little pins sticking out of our bodies. Till next time...Be Good to Each Other !

Tapping Nick Ortner by Glennis Taylor BSc

hat if it were possible to tap with your fingers for several minutes and release your fear of flying? There is a way and it is called Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), also referred to as tapping. Tapping is a growing movement that is sweeping the world. It is so effective that many psychiatrists are incorporating it into their practice. They are finding that it can do quickly and easily what many hours of talk therapy seem unable to do. What is this simple technique that is revolutionizing the treatment of many emotionally based problems? In the early 1980’s, Roger Callahan, a psychologist specializing in anxiety disorders, was surprised one day when treating a patient, that by tapping with fingers on a part of her face, the specific fear that the patient was focusing on was released entirely. Callahan went on to develop a fairly complex system to deal with fears and anxieties. Pat Carrington, a student of Callahan’s, simplified the system. Another student of Callahan, Gary Craig, further simplified the technique. It has gone through some further evolutions and is now a very simple and effective technique that can be learned very quickly and applied to many different issues; both emotional and physical. Tapping can be effective in dealing with fears, phobias, traumas, anxieties and panic disorders, PTSD and even reducing physical pain. Though doing the tapping sequence is easy, understanding why it works is a bit more complex. It can be described as a psychological acupressure technique based on the body’s energy meridians that were noted in Asia over 5000 years ago. By tapping gently with the fingers on several acupuncture end point meridians on the face and chest, it is pos-

sible to uproot old beliefs held tightly by the subconscious and stored in a part of the brain known as the amygdala. It is an almond shaped body of neurons located deep in the medial temporal lobe of the brain responsible for processing emotional responses and memory. It is part of the limbic system: the emotional part of the brain. As we go through life we are continually triggering or activating stored traumas in the form of memories. We may wonder why we react so illogically to something that happens at home or work. It might be that an event or comment today that is seemingly insignificant has activated an energy pattern from many years ago and we end up cascading down an emotional slippery slope that seems to have a life of its own. We may have no idea what old feeling or event it activated. Here is where tapping can come in. It can intervene at the brain level and rewire the troublesome neural pathway. Harvard Medical School studied the blood flow pattern to the brain using MRI while tapping was in progress and discovered that the aroused amygdala actually calmed down as the tapping sequence was carried out. These changes to the neural pathways are often permanent. This means that when you recall that traumatic event, you will be able to remember the event but the emotional charge will be reduced or eliminated and loses its power over you. This sounds great, doesn’t it? The tapping procedure that is commonly used today involves tapping on 9 different points, though there are several variations to the points and sequence. It begins with a setup phrase that identifies the issue you wish to work on. This begins the arousal phase of the procedure. You want to mentally bring to mind the

trauma or memory trigger that causes the amygdala to respond as if threatened by that event. You can evaluate the emotional charge it elicits in you on a scale of 1 to 10. As you proceed with the tapping sequence (usually tapping for a few seconds or 4-7 gentle taps) on each meridian point, you state the issue on each point: I am afraid of flying…flying makes me feel very unsafe...I think I may die.... At the end of the first negative round of tapping you may want to repeat the tapping sequence several times. The next phase is to repeat the sequence only now you say at each tapping point phrases that you would prefer to feel...positive phrases....it is safe to fly...I am comfortable in an airplane....etc. At the end of the positive sequence you re-evaluate the emotional charge. Sometimes within minutes the charge is negated and the issue resolved; other times you may have to repeat the tapping points on the issue over several sessions. You are able to input a new message to the amygdala that becomes the new norm. Scientists once thought the brain to have little flexibility, but today there is more and more amazing data on what is now called neuroplasticity, a truly exciting field of study. One of the EFT’s foremost experts is Nick Ortner. I had the privilege to chat to Nick about this intriguing healing modality. Nick discovered the value of this technique in 2004 when dealing with some health issues that resolved so quickly that Nick wanted to know more. Since that time and seeing what it did for family and friends he has made it his life mission to bring this simple and inexpensive way of healing to as many people as he can. He is still amazed daily at what tapping can do for people. The diversity for shifting both emotional and physical issues almost makes it seem too good to be

true. But Nick knows just how true it is. It boils down to changing the stress on the body Nick explains. Stress manifests in so many ways and those hidden traumas and memories that we have suppressed and buried so deep in us once released give the body a chance to heal itself. Five years ago Nick released the very popular documentary “The Tapping Solution”. He is just releasing his brand new book also called “The Tapping Solution” so that this tapping procedure will be available to everyone. He wishes to empower people so that they understand that they can feel ease and in control of life. Tapping only takes a few minutes to do and the results can transform your world. Nick says...”just give it a shot, spend five minutes and see what shifts!” Tapping can be done by anyone, anytime and anywhere: a simple, natural and wonderful release. Nick will be one of several well respected and sought-after key note speakers in the upcoming Hay House Convention in Vancouver April 20-21. The event called “I Can Do It” is going to be exciting with so many spirited and inspiring souls gathering together to grace Vancouver’s shores with their wisdom and to share their uplifting experiences with us.

8 Ways Corporations Poison Our Food, Water, and Earth by Mike Barrett NaturalSociety.com

W

hile we may be under the impression that our system of government is here to protect us, corporations— and the politicians getting paycheques from them—do a fair job of making that difficult. This manner of “legislative capture” is manifesting itself in a host of appalling ways far beyond those listed here. Here are 8 ways corporations are poisoning our food supply, humans, and mother earth.

1. Sugary Drinks, Diet Drinks are Addictive and Fattening Sugary drinks, especially soda, run rampant in the U.S., with corporations shelling out millions to advertise to both children and adults. Kids are taking in 7 trillion calories of sugar each year from soda alone, with sodas making up 15-25% of the daily recommended caloric intake for kids aged 2 to 19. Sugar-sweetened sodas can contain upwards of 200 calories per can, but even artificially sweetened drinks should not be considered safe. Several studies show that artificial sweeteners— like cancer-linked aspartame—can contribute to tooth decay, obesity, kidney damage, and depression.

2. Bisphenol A and Other Chemicals in Canned Goods BPA is a hormone disrupting chemical used in canned goods and plastic bottles. The chemical, which is labeled as “toxic” in other nations, had a chance to be banned of March 2012. In a move that angered activists within the US and even internationally, the FDA ruled against the ban. This ubiquitous chemical has been linked to: • • • • • • • • •

Obesity Hyperactivity in girls Infertility Sterility Breast cancer Reproductive issues Hastened puberty Feminization in boys Damaged arteries

3. Buying Out and Creating Organic Companies You may not know this, but many organic companies are actually owned and operated by major corporations like Coca-Cola or Kellogg. Companies like Honest Tea and Odwalla may appeal to health conscious shoppers,

but they are actually owned by Coca-Cola. Another popular ‘health’ brand is Kashi, owned by the Kellogg corporation. Some products from these companies may be ’100% organic’, but do you really trust their labelling practices? Or perhaps more importantly, do you really want to give support to the corporate producer? Further, these large corporations are buying out some of the companies many natural-health advocates have grown to love. One example is when New Chapter, a vitamin and supplement company offering worthy products since 1892, was bought out by mega-corporation Proctor & Gamble.

4. Antibiotics are Making People Fat These days, physicians are a little stabhappy with their antibiotics, often to just please the patient with a medical solution (a placebo effect, if you will). But it could be setting us up for lifelong obesity – at least that’s what some research has to say. In addition to killing “bad” bacteria, antibiotics kill “good” bacteria in the gut, thereby disrupting digestion even in the long run. There’s also mounting evidence that antibiotics may be promoting diabetes and metabolic syndrome—but not killing the cold and flu viruses that parents think they are (antibiotics cannot kill viruses, only bacteria).

5. Antibiotics in Livestock are Promoting Bacterial Resistance Last year, The Guardian wrote about 150 scientists and 50 farmers—including a former FDA commissioner—demanding that Congress regulate antibiotic use in livestock. The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has even blamed overuse of antibiotics for the global resistance to antibiotics, which could make antibiotics futile against disease-causing bacteria. And this is not even considering the other ill effects antibiotics have on the animals we eat.

the side of anti-GM labelling. As mentioned above, many of these companies are owned by corporations like Coca-Cola or General Mills. They all support GM food, are anti-GM labelling, and subsequently support the use of herbicides and pesticides. Pesticides that are being used in greater amounts each day thanks to mutated insects that become resistant to Monsanto’s Roundup-ready GM crops. According to numerous pieces of research, GM foods like Monsanto’s corn have been implicated of contributing to weight gain, organ disruption, tumour development and infertility in rats. Roundup—a glyphosate-based herbicide— is to thank for contributing to water pollution, resistant rootworms and superweeds, and environmental devastation.

7. Herbicides and Insecticides Contributing to Bee Colony Collapse Although technological products like cell phone towers and cell phones are hurting the bee population, herbicides, insecticides and pesticides brought to us by Bayer, Monsanto, and Dow AgroSciences appear to be the main culprits. It has been shown time and time again that these chemicals are ravaging these tiny insects that are essential for agriculture purposes and pollinating food crops. “…a document was leaked revealing that a bee-killing pesticide put in use by the EPA may be to blame [for the bee decline]. Adding to the controversy, more records have emerged showing that the USDA was fully aware of the pesticide’s threat to not only bees, but humans… Neonicotinoids, the particular type of pesticides

used, are absorbed systemically into plants, including the pollen and nectar. Once the bees begin to pollinate, they also absorb the insecticide, and die.” Neonicotinoids have been banned in France and Germany, but not the United States.

8. Factory Farms Devastate Land and Sea If you purchase your meat from a grocery store instead of a farmer’s market or co-op, it was probably raised in a factory farm. Not only are these farms known for extreme animal cruelty (which many undercover videos have gruesomely pointed out), but they are also responsible for polluting groundwater, drinking water, and contributing to massive deforestation. Actually, they produce 100 times more waste than the entire U.S. population. Run-off from these establishments as well as non-organic crops are contributing to blooms and dead zones in coastal waters. Earlier this year, a scientific paper argued against the case of factory farms feeding the world, but with the USDA and FDA deep in industrial farming’s pockets, it will take considerable time and effort before we see any changes. ___________________ Mike is the co-founder, editor, and primary researcher behind Natural Society.

6. Supporting Genetically Modified Foods and Herbicides If you are into organic foods and have been following GM news, you know that the latest and greatest chance for GM labelling was with California’s proposition 37. Needless to say, the bill was not passed, but Prop 37 did teach us a lot about the interest of various companies and mega corporations. It was no surprise to see biotech giant Monsanto dish out over $4 million to fight the bill, but some people were surprised to see Naked Juice, Kashi, Cascadian Farm Organic, Honest Tea, and some others on

Chem Flu

Continued from page 3 one of the major players in world genocide, world population reduction. That’s no mystery anymore. When you examine who owns the chemtrail fuel, who are the fuel company directors, suddenly you enter into the realm of the Rockefeller family and the royal families – Standard Oil and British Petroleum. And what are their other agendas? Suddenly now you see their documents, showing that they have funded, historically, eugenics, racial hygiene, genocide, depopulation, family planning, maternal and child health – where they make and deliver vaccines, and contaminated blood supplies. These are the banksters, the same people who run the blood banking as well as the money banking industries”, says Dr. Horowitz. “I reference a great book by Dr. John Coleman, who worked as a British Secret Service agent at the highest levels. And he articulated very clearly who was running those companies. It all goes back, ultimately, to the highest level of the royal family. The Bush family, Rothschild family, the Rockefeller money, and the entire Rockefeller establishment is based on Rothschild money and royal families. If you can’t explain it rationally or any other way, I think you’ve got to begin to consider conspiracy theories and eliminate the negative label that you’ve placed on conspiracy theories which have been demonized along with holistic medicine.”

America’s Fourth Reich The ruling crime families are making vast fortunes off of humanity’s suffering. The Rockefellers monopolized American medicine in the 1920s. They, along with I.G. Farben, Germany’s leading industrial organization, held the monopoly on the world’s chemical and pharmaceutical industries. The Rockefellers and I.G. Farben worked

together before World War II and during World War II. For all practical purposes, the Rockefellers and I.G. Farben were the Third Reich. Who else is involved? The Merck Pharmaceutical Company. Their president, George W. Merck, was America’s biological weapons industry director during World War II. He was personally appointed by President Roosevelt and Secretary of War Stimson. The Nazis planned for the New World Order. They even had a term for it – “neue Ordnung,” which means New Order, New World Order. This today, this New World Order, is the rise of the Fourth Reich. This is precisely what they envisioned and then carried out on a global scale. The goal of the Fourth Reich is population control and genocide. 99.99 percent of Masons have no clue what they’re really up to at the highest levels. they give you increased knowledge at every higher degree of Freemasonry. When you get beyond the 33rd degree, you get the highest indoctrination into what’s called the Ancient Arcana, the ancient sacred knowledge described in the book Healing Codes of the Biblical Apocalypse. That’s where the devildoers who are running this planet are nesting. How does a person become that high in the Masonic organization? Through bloodlines. You’ve got to be major royalty, ideally a descendent or you’ve got to be somebody who is very close to the royalty, the major bloodlines.

Who Are They Targeting? Who are they targeting for genocide? If there’s an attempt underway to reduce the population of the planet, why isn’t it happening? Look at countries like those in Africa, Third World nations that have been heavily targeted with HIV/AIDS. And consider that 73 percent of HIV/AIDS patients in America today are Black or Hispanic. Statistically, 55 percent of gay men in America are already

dead. Are you seeing depopulation specifically targeting minority groups now? Of course. It’s happening right now. They don’t want to totally eliminate populations completely, just certain populations. And isn’t it, from their perspective, wonderful? They’ve got a covert depopulation agenda that nobody’s picked up on yet. It’s ideally what they want to produce. It’s not just about the money. I think there’s a Satanic or evil ideology, because Nixon himself said, referring to the Rockefellers, – it’s not about money for these people, it’s about power.

The Monopoly Game At the end of the Monopoly game, what do you do? One person wins, they own all of the real estate, they own all of the assets, they’ve wiped all the other players out and the game is over. You can put the game away in your closet. But you don’t do that on planet earth. The person who wins at the end of this World Monopoly Game gets to rearrange the board. And that’s precisely what we’ve seen in the last year. You’ve seen not the biggest fish eating the biggest fish in international commerce, you have seen the mega-whales eating the mega-whales in these megamergers. All these little companies that are producing your vitamins are a subsidiary of a major conglomerate. Today a Warner Lambert or Glaxo Wellcom, all of these huge, huge corporations own all the little fish. They buy them out. So, again, now the game board gets to be changed if they desire, and apparently that’s what they desire. That’s their agenda, you can see it. At the Denver Airport, there’s a capstone, in the main terminal building dedicated to the New World Airport Commission by the Freemasons. And there’s a big colourful mural – that is dedicated to the extinct human species. And in the foreground, against the horrific backdrop of flames and destruction, there are three open coffins.

Build Your Immune System STEP ONE: Detoxification - Because we’ve all been fed Babylon’s harvest and eaten the toxic garbage that comes from Monsanto, Dow Chemical and Archer Daniel and all their genetically engineered foods and the chemicals and the fluorides and the chlorines, we need to detox. There’s an easy detoxification program using fresh squeezed lemonade that you make with maple syrup and fresh squeezed lemons and cayenne pepper. http://tinyurl.com/d5ujsjl STEP TWO: De-acidification - To change your body’s chemistry, make it more alkaline. It’s only in the acid state that the growth of bacteria, viruses, fungus, moulds, and cancer cells thrive. They cannot grow in an alkaline environment. What causes your body chemistry to go acidic and become a breeding ground for the bacterial and infectious agents? Caffeine, nicotine, sugar, refined carbohydrates, alcohol, pharmaceuticals including antibiotics, red meats, stress – are the main causes. Eliminate or reduce them as much as possible. Squeeze lemon juice into water. Lemon has a lot of calcium in it and it turns to calcium hydroxide in drinking water. That’s alkalizing. It raises the PH of that water from about 7 to about 8. Hot cayenne pepper is one of the most alkalizing agents you can put in your body. It detoxifies and de-acidifies all in one step. STEP THREE: Spiritual - Meditate. There’s mental, emotion, social, environmental, and, above all, spiritual changes that people need to make to really prepare to withstand the plagues. STEP FOUR: Oxygenation - The Rockefeller-directed international banksters, blood banksters and medical monopolists have been busy suppressing your immune system. You want to raise your blood oxygen levels.

Sovereign Spirit

Continued from page 2 Right? Not quite. Rightness is a reflection of truth. Truth is both universal and relative. How so? When we shift perspective, we affect the universality of our truth. Zoom way out from your own concerns and your sense of truth takes on a more universal aspect. You are compelled to know a truth that is not only valid for you, but for others too. The further you zoom out, the more consciousness and creation that truth has to encompass and respect. The opposite is also the case. Zooming in exclusively on your own personal affairs decreases the universality of your truth. To act with honour, therefore, is to flow with divine ordinance. We don’t learn what is right – we allow our innate knowing of it to arise. We already have it. We are sovereign.

Page 22

Juxtaposed against the backdrop of the allencompassing modern media, all this talk of righteous conduct can seem rather fusty. Take in a few consecutive evenings of television and one comes away with the impression that there’s no interest in such things anymore. Self-destructive actors, bigoted politicians, disoriented sportsmen and violent musicians are constantly held up as the sexy anti-heroes of the new millennium. The media doesn’t even bother to covertly infer the desirability of decadence anymore; they boldly proclaim it in shiny gold letters. Gossipy, half-witted lifestyle magazine covers – unaccountably exhibited at every supermarket checkout – are splattered with the most squalid tales of human lechery. Dishonour makes headlines, for those who like it. But it is when these pollutants are squirted through every orifice of the system that one wonders where we are on the graph curve of civilization? Are we witnessing a rerun of the

ALL NATURAL NO ELECTRICITY PROCESS

last days of Rome? Perhaps Marcus Aurelius (121-180 AD), the last of the “Five Good Emperors”, is well placed to comment. Aurelius’ sharp insights into human nature often helped him to rise above the various negative gravitations of high office. He wrote: “A noble man compares and estimates himself by an idea which is higher than himself; and a mean man, by one lower than himself. The one produces aspiration; the other ambition, which is the way in which a vulgar man aspires.” Such truthful proclamations helped distinguish Aurelius from the madness and debauchery of previous emperors such as Tiberius, Caligula and Nero. As the historian Herodian wrote: “Alone of the emperors, he gave proof of his learning not by mere words or knowledge of philosophical doctrines but by his blameless character and temperate way of life.” Aurelius highlights the fact that, ultimately,

personal ambition is rather a precarious life path, as it serves only to satisfy the fleeting appetites of the ego. When we think of our own modern day emperors, we can see how quickly this can turn sour. It is always such a breath of fresh air when a genuine human soul steps into the fray and exhibits the sort of noble qualities that give us faith in humanity again. In these strange days, I have been reassured to know that such fine people are out there and they are out there in number. Spiritual sovereignty teaches us that force and power are two very different things. Anyone can exert force, but not everyone is endowed with power. To wield real power, we must be in harmony with our higher purpose, with universal truth. This is the truth that we can feel in our hearts, minds and spirit, and is a compass for conscious growth. When we build that into our everyday thoughts and deeds, we live as honourable men and women.


President Barack Obama is now the global head of Al-Qaeda – bankrolling, arming and equipping terrorists around the world in order to achieve his administration’s geopolitical objectives – while simultaneously invoking the threat of terrorists domestically to destroy the bill of rights.

by Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones InfoWars.com

S

ince it has now been established that those merely suspected of engaging in terrorism, including US citizens, are subject to targeted drone strikes, under the terms of his own prosecution of the fake war on terror, Obama must immediately order a drone strike on the White House because the facts documented below incontrovertibly demonstrate that it represents the headquarters of Al-Qaeda operations worldwide. The fact that Al-Qaeda was created by western intelligence and has always been controlled by these interests demonstrates that the Al-Qaeda threat is one of the greatest ongoing hoaxes in world history. The administration has sent nearly half a billion dollars ($365 million plus another $60 million) and is now using US Special Forces to train militants in Syria who have pledged allegiance to Al-Qaeda and who continue to carry out grisly beheadings, terrorist bombings

targeting innocent civilians and chemical weapons attacks against women and children. These same militants, backed not only by the US but by every major NATO power, have repeatedly voiced their hatred for and intention to destroy America, as they ransack Christian churches, burn US flags, chant anti-American slogans and sing the praises of Osama Bin Laden while glorifying the 9/11 attacks. As the New York Times reported, these very same terrorists killed U.S. troops in Iraq and yet western backing for the insurgency against Bashar Al-Assad has enabled violent extremists to seize power in Syria. As multiple reports now confirm, Jabhat al-Nusra, the main Al-Qaeda group in Syria, is now commanding rebels and is engaged in “the heaviest frontline fighting” in Syria. As the London Guardian reported, rebels in Syria are admittedly being led by Al-Qaeda terrorists, who meet with them “every day” and train them how to make bombs. The top 29 Syrian opposition groups have all sworn allegiance to Jabhat al-Nusra. Sheik Moaz al Khatib, head of the Syrian National Coalition of Revolutionary and Opposition Forces, has also publicly affirmed his support for the terrorist group. These same terrorists have also vowed to attack the United States once they are finished in Syria, while proclaiming their desire to see the Al-Qaeda flag flying over the White House. In addition, while Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority,”

and “reverent of individual liberty” have been characterized as terrorists by their own government, US citizens who openly take up arms to join with terrorists in Libya and Syria are allowed to fly around the world with total impunity. In supporting Al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria as part of the effort to impose regime change, the Obama administration is following the same disastrous policy it pursued in Libya, backing the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, which also killed U.S. troops in Iraq, to overthrow Gaddafi. That led to a country ruled by thugs who have rounded up, tortured and executed thousands of black Libyans. It also led to the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, which was carried out by some of the very same LIFG terrorists the United States had backed just a year previously. After the overthrow of Gaddafi, NATO powers aided in airlifting LIFG militants into Syria to continue the fight to impose Sharia law across the region. Given all this, it’s abundantly clear that the Obama administration has easily outstripped other targets of drone strikes in its zeal to support terrorism around the world. American citizen Anwar Al-Awlaki was killed by a drone strike simply for producing propaganda videos and communicating with accused terrorists. His 16-year-old son was similarly slaughtered for merely sharing his

father’s surname. Other American citizens like John Walker Lindh were imprisoned and tortured in Guantanamo Bay for fighting with the Taliban. And yet, as Afghan President Hamid Karzai made clear last week, the Obama administration is now colluding with the Taliban while the group carries out suicide bombings in the “service of America.” By backing terrorists in Afghanistan, Libya and now Syria, Barack Obama has carved out a role as the global head of Al-Qaeda. Wherever on the map his administration wants to dominate geopolitically, Al-Qaeda terrorists flood in to to the dirty work – and it’s all paid for with your tax dollars. By ordering a drone strike on the White House, Obama would be targeting the primary source now responsible for most of the world’s global terrorism – his own administration. In closing, it’s important to note that President Barack Obama himself is nothing more than a global crime syndicate mercenary front man for criminal interests that have seized control of the national security apparatus. This article is intended to call Obama and his controllers out as the real progenitors of Al-Qaeda and the synthetic war on terror. And here is the key – just as WMDs were a fraudulent pretext for the Iraq war, the Al-Qaeda cut out threat is 100 per cent manufactured to destroy western free societies and convert the entire planet into a totalitarian world government.

Genetically Modified Capitalism by Colin Todhunter

C

GlobalResearch.ca

apitalism is based on managing its inherent crises. It is also based on the need to maximize profit, beat down competitors, cut overheads and depress wages. In the 1960s and 70s, in the face of increasing competition from abroad, the US began to outsource manufacturing production to bring down costs by using cheap foreign labour. Other countries followed suit. Even more jobs were lost through the impulse to automate. To provide a further edge, trade unions and welfare were attacked in order to suppress wages at home. Problem solved. Or was it? Not really. As wages in the west stagnated or decreased and unemployment increased, the market for goods was under threat – if

people have less money to buy things, then what to do? New problem, new ‘solution’ – lend people money and create a debt-ridden consumer society. Of course, it produced great opportunities for investors in finance, and all kinds of dubious financial derivatives and products were created, sold to the public and repackaged and shifted around the banking system. That market became saturated and the debt bubble burst. This time around the ‘solution’ is to print money and give bailouts to the banks to cover their gambling losses and to get them lending once again. With a huge hole appearing in state coffers due to the bailouts and national debt spiralling during the years of neo-liberalism, the current crisis has become an opportunity for the finance sector to exert long-term debt-related control over sovereign states, including public asset stripping via ‘austerity’.

On a global level, as local democracy is usurped by the influence of international finance and powerful corporate interests under the guise of ‘globalization’, traditional agricultural practices and local economies have been ‘structurally adjusted’ (via singlecrop export-oriented policies to earn foreign currency to pay off debt, dam building to cater for what became a highly water intensive chemical-based industry, more loans and indebtedness and the unnecessary shifting food around the planet) and farmers forced from their land. The fact that such people can then at least swarm to some sprawling, overburdened city and, if lucky, get a few dollars a day job in an outsourced sweatshop or call centre is somehow passed off as capitalism’s ‘economic miracle’. It’s apparent that, as the academic David Harvey states, the problems created by

capitalism don’t get solved, they just get shifted around. Nowhere is this epitomized more clearly than the role of US agribusiness in India. According to Jeffrey M Smith from the Institute for Responsible Technology, Russia, China and  the  EU were not the pushovers for GMOs that US agribusiness hoped they would be. However, with the US having sanctioned the opening up of India’s nuclear energy sector and, in return, its agribusiness and retail giants having actively shaped the Knowledge Agreement on Agriculture, India might well be proving to be an easier option. Before GMOs became news in India, it was already clear that US agribusiness could not provide real solutions to the agrarian problems it had created with its ‘Green Revolution’. According to Gautam Dheer’s recent piece in

Yogi Hair by Deva Kaur Khalsa

onsider the possibility that the hair on your head is there to do more than just look good. Man is the only creature who grows longer hair on his head as he grows into adulthood. Left uncut, your hair will grow to a particular length and then stop all by itself at the correct length for you. From a yogic perspective, hair is an amazing gift of nature that can actually help raise the Kundalini energy (creative life force), which increases vitality, intuition, and tranquility.

spinal fluid through the two ducts on the top of the brain. This ionic change creates more efficient memory and leads to greater physical energy, improved stamina, and patience.” Yogi Bhajan explained that if you choose to cut your hair, you not only lose this extra energy and nourishment, but your body must then provide a great amount of vital energy and nutrients to continually re-grow the missing hair. In addition, hairs are the antennas that gather and channel the sun energy or prana to the frontal lobes, the part of the brain you use for meditation and visualization. These antennas act as conduits to bring you greater quantities of subtle, cosmic energy. It takes approximately three years from the last time your hair was cut for new antennas to form at the tips of the hair.

Cut Hair - Long ago people in many cultures didn’t cut their hair, because it was a part of who they were. There were no salons. Often, when people were conquered or enslaved, their hair was cut as a recognized sign of slavery. It was also understood that this would serve as punishment and decrease the power of those enslaved. The bones in the forehead are porous and function to transmit light to the pineal gland, which affects brain activity, as well as thyroid and sexual hormones. Cutting bangs which cover the forehead impedes this process. When Genghis Khan conquered China, he considered the Chinese to be a very wise, intelligent people who would not allow themselves to be subjugated. He therefore required all women in the country to cut their hair and wear bangs, because he knew this would serve to keep them timid and more easily controlled. As whole tribes or societies were conquered, cut hair became so prevalent that the importance of hair was lost after a few generations, and hairstyles and fashion grew to be the focus. The science of hair was one of the first technologies given by Yogi Bhajan when he came to America. “When the hair on your head is allowed to attain its full, mature length, then phosphorous, calcium, and vitamin D are all produced, and enter the lymphatic fluid, and eventually the

Kundalini Hair Care - In India, a Rishi is known as a wise one who coils his or her hair up on the crown of the head during the day to energize the brain cells, and then combs it down at night. A ‘rishi knot’ energizes your magnetic field (aura) and stimulates the pineal gland in the centre of your brain. “This activation of your pineal results in a secretion that is central to the development of higher intellectual functioning, as well as higher spiritual perception” -Yogi Bhajan During the day, the hair absorbs solar energy, but at night it absorbs lunar energy. Keeping the hair up during the day and down at night aids in this process. Braiding your hair at night will help your electromagnetic field balance out from the day. Split Ends - Loose scattered hair can develop split ends. Instead of trimming them and losing your antennas, Yogi Bhajan recommends applying a small amount of almond oil to your hair overnight so that it can be absorbed before you wash it the next morning. Keeping your hair coiled on your

crown and protected with a head covering during the day will help your antennas heal. If you have long hair, see if your experience is different when it is clean and coiled at your crown, or down and loose.

Wet Hair - One year after Winter Solstice, when Yogi Bhajan was sitting in our living room with wet hair, he explained that he was drying it before putting it up in order to avoid a headache. When you put your hair up wet, it will tend to shrink and tighten a bit and even break as it dries. A better idea is to occasionally take the time to sit in the sun and allow your clean, wet hair to dry naturally and absorb some extra vitamin D. Yogis recommend shampooing the hair every 72 hours (or more frequently if the scalp sweats a great deal). It can also be beneficial to wash your hair after being upset to help process emotions. Wooden Comb - Yogis also recommend using a wooden comb or brush for combing your hair as it gives a lot of circulation and stimulation to the scalp, and the wood does not create static electricity, which causes a loss of the hair’s energy to the brain. You will find that, if you comb your hair and scalp front to back, back to front, and then to the right and left several times, it will refresh you, no matter how long your hair is. All the tiredness of your day will be gone. For women, it is said that using this technique to comb your hair twice a day can help maintain youth, a healthy menstrual cycle, and good eyesight. If you are bald or balding, the lack of hair energy can be counteracted with more meditation. If you are finding some silver strands in your hair, be aware that the silver or white color increases the vitamins and energy flow to compensate for aging. For better brain health as you age, try to keep your hair as natural and healthy as you can.

Tagore’s Hair - Yogi Bhajan told us this story about hair many years ago at Women’s Camp in New Mexico: Recognize how beautiful and powerful your hair is—when you keep it, you live a life of fulfillment in this world. When Rabindranath Tagore, the great poet who found God within himself, tried to meet a friend on a steamer ship, the friend didn’t recognize him and so wrote him a letter. “We were on the same steamer, but I didn’t find you.” Tagore said, “I was there.” His friend said, “I understand you are now a God-realized man, and I would like to know what your first action was when you became aware of the Oneness in all” Tagore said, “When I realized the Oneness of all, I threw my shaving kit into the ocean. I gave up my ego and surrendered to nature. I wanted to live in the form that my Creator has given me.” When humans allow their hair to grow, they are welcoming the maturity, the responsibility of being fully-grown, and fully powerful. That is why you will find grace and calmness in a person with uncut hair from birth, if it is kept well. The Creator has a definite reason for giving you hair. It is said that when you allow your hair to grow to its full length and coil it on the crown of the head, the sun energy, pranic life force, is drawn down the spine. To counteract that downward movement, the Kundalini life energy rises to create balance. In Yogi Bhajan’s words, “Your hair is not there by mistake. It has a definite purpose, which saints will discover and other men will laugh at.” _________________ Deva Kaur Khalsa trains Kundalini Yoga Teachers and teaches Kundalini Yoga in South Florida.  She was a student of Yogi Bhajan for over 39 years.  She is co-owner of Yoga Source in Coral Springs, Florida, and can be reached at www.MyYogaSource.com

“When an inner situation is not made conscious, it appears outside of you as fate” - Carl Jung GM Capitalism

Continued from page 23 India’s Deccan Herald newspaper, agriculture in Punjab (the ‘Green Revolution’s’ original poster boy) is facing an inevitable crisis, in terms of pesticide use causing cancer, falling crop yields and groundwater depletion. The model it has adapted is unsustainable. Indeed, what is happening in Punjab could be the tip of the iceberg as far as chemical agriculture in India (and elsewhere) is concerned. And now evidence is mounting that agribusiness can’t provide genuine solutions to the problems it has also created through its GMOs, seed patenting and monopolies either. A recent report in Business Standard stated that such Bt cotton (GMOs represent the ‘Green Revolution’s’ second coming) yields have dropped to a five-year low. India approved Bt cotton in 2002 and within a few years yields increased dramatically. However, Glenn Davis Stone, Professor of Anthropology and Environmental Studies at Washington University in St. Louis, has noted that most of the rise in productivity had nothing to do with Bt cotton. What’s more, since Bt has taken over, yields have been steadily worsening. According to the article in Business Standard (2), it seems bollworms are developing resistance. Contrary

Page 26

to what farmers were originally told, the Monsanto spokesperson quoted in the Business Standard piece says that such resistance is to be expected. Stone says when Bt cotton arrived in India, farmers were told that they wouldn’t have to spray any more. All that farmers had to do was plant the seeds and water them regularly. They were told that, as the genetically modified seeds are insect resistant, there was no need to use huge amounts of pesticides. The premise adopted by the GM sector was that for years people had tried to change ‘backward’ tradition-bound practices of these farmers. But now all you have to do is give them the magic biotech seed. Now that resistance has appeared, Stone notes that, according to Monsanto’s spokesperson, it’s all the Indian farmers’ fault! The spokesperson explains in Business Standard that ‘limited refuge planting’ is one of the factors that may have contributed to pink bollworm resistance. Using the ‘wrong’ biotech seed is another. The answer from the biotech sector to combat falling yields is continuous R&D to develop new technologies to stay ahead of insect resistance. Innovation from the GM sector is going to guarantee higher yields. Isn’t that what we were hearing ten years ago? Of course it is. It’s a massive con-trick. Stone says that yields started dropping

after 2007/8. After 2006/7, the number of Bt hybrid seeds being offered to farmers jumped from 62 to 131 to 274; by 2009/10 there were 522. Despite this, farmers’ yields are steadily dropping. And the way forward – more of the same! The failing technology can always be replaced with more destined-to-fail technology, but one that at least offers a short-term fix. In the meantime, the Indian government effectively subsidizes US agribusiness via compensation given to farmers whose cotton crops have failed, as is the case in Maharashtra. Now that the government and Western agribusiness have conspired to set the corporate controlled merry-go-round in motion, there may be little chance of getting off. Having had control stripped from them, farmers may well be forever beholden to US agribusiness which took their power. Privately owned agribusiness, as is the way with capitalism in general, is based on shorttermism. Its predator corporations in India are merely engaged in managing and thus profiting from the crises they themselves have conspired to produce with their destruction of traditional agriculture and local economies and their chemical inputs and genetic engineering. By its very nature, as part of the logic of capitalism, US agribusiness is designed to stumble from one crisis to the next. And it will do so by

hiding behind the banners of ‘innovation’ or ‘research and development’. And with each new ‘fix’, with each technology, with each new pesticide, herbicide, GM innovation, we become further removed from working in harmony with nature as we attempt to dominate it with some or other biotechnology that further damages both ourselves and the environment. But, it’s all good business. And that’s all that really matters. There’s always money to be made from blaming the victims (in this case, farmers) for the mess created and from a continuous state of crisis management (aka ‘innovation’ and bombarding farmers with a never-ending stream of new technologies); and, as we are well aware in India’s case, there’s money to be made from the suffering of others. Ultimately, this is what capitalism is all about: planned obsolescence – planned obsolescence of its products, in order that profits can be made from a stream of new ‘wonder’ products and, as far as India is concerned, planned obsolescence of its farmers as agribusiness sets out to uproot tradition and shape farming in its own chemical and genetically engineered image. Capitalism doesn’t solve its problems, it just shifts them around. And part of the great contrick is that it attempts to pass off its endless crises and failures as brilliant successes.
