It is becoming more and more evidential that many people whom display psychiatric disorders are being influenced by energy beyond the normal field of perceptual range. So they are seeing, hearing, feeling and being programmed by non physical entities plus thoughts and feelings transmitted by other people.

Labeled Depressive Mental illness is labeled in many ways and can take many forms from depression, anxiety, panic attacks, neurosis, obsessive-compulsive disorder,phobias, self harming, manic depression and Schizophrenia. Sometimes leading on to escapism through drug and alcohol abuse and even suicide. A psychic (sensitive) person who consciously trains their ability to link into other realms is generally considered to have special gifts, whereas a person with bipolar disorder or schizophrenia is sensitive and often labeled mentally ill and prescribed medication.

Sensitivity Shut Down Medicating the psychic effects the psychic by shutting down their ability and sensitivity. This treatment if continued goes further to also restrict their psychic senses. However, I ask “is there really any difference�?


“The prescription of Psychiatric drugs has increased by 50%.” The medical professiona is based mostly on the study of physical sciences. Maybe it is now time for the medical profession to open their minds to beyond what can be explained and measured beyond empirical sciences and consider alternatives to medication. Prescriptions for psychiatric drugs increased 50 percent with children in the US, and 73 percent among adults, from 1996 to 2006, according to a study in the May/June 2009 issue of the journal Health Affairs.

Health Care Spending Up 30% Another study in the same issue found spending for

“In short, the nature of the hallucinations of Jesus, as they are described in the orthodox Gospels, permits us to conclude that the founder of the Christian religion was afflicted with religious paranoia.”

10 Signs YOU are an emerging Lightworker

What is a Lightworker? A Lightworker is someone who represents the future potential for all humans on Earth; they are the early waves of change towards a world where people value the inner world as much as the outer world. Lightworkers are here to help facilitate the evolution of human consciousness simply by being themselves. Lightworkers live from the heart & intuition; they are driven by a sense of purpose to help others reconnect to their inner beauty & power. Lightworkers are not people who live inside the box, they see past the illusion of a man-made society into what is real beyond the veils. They find it very hard to fit into what is expected in society which is appropriate as they are here to help society advance, grow & transform into one based on collaboration, transparency, integ-

ers or being the new saviour, it is quite simply that the work has great value & that Lightworkers are hardwired for global transformation. One Lightworker will not transform the planet, but together they can & will.

The same goes for family. You may have never felt like you quite fitted in to your own family. As you start to awaken it is common to feel that your blood family are not your ‘true’ family. This is because • Issues with you are awakening to your family & friends soul group, those people One of the early signs that with a similar vibrational sigyour soul purpose as a Light- nature to you that pledged worker may be starting to to help you on your path. awaken is that you feel like you don’t fit into your circle • S e e k i n g work of friends anymore, you may meaningful have always felt a little like the Lightworkers find it very hard odd one out. You may never to fit into a workplace where have seen the world as they authority is wielded for its do & are no longer willing to own sake. If you are starting pretend or compromise your to rebel or lose respect for own truth in order to fit in. your boss & feel dissatisfied

with your work it is sometimes a sign of Lightworker Emergence. You may find it hard to play by the rules when the rules don’t make sense. Lightworkers also get very frustrated if they cannot have any creative input into their role, job or working environment. Is this you? If it is then you may be one of the many Lightworkers who are much happier working for themselves, letting go of the desire for wealth for its own sake & enjoying a creative life of true abundance.


• Vivid dreams & other-worldly experiences During ‘awakening’ there are

many changes to your chakra system, the series of energy centres following the line of your spine that help keep all your systems (physical, mental & emotional) in balance. The Chakra that often starts to change or open first is the ‘3rd Eye’ in the middle of your forehead. When this chakra starts to open you may start to have very vivid dreams & ‘other worldly’/ psychic experiences. You are safe & this is normal. Keep a dream journal by your bed & write down your dreams & experiences, this helps to ground them, settle them, make sense of them & can take any fear out of the experiences.

Some of these experiences may feel like you are being guided by some invisible force or beings. Your intuition may get stronger; you may start to experience strong synchronicities/ meaningful coincidences in your life. You may start to become aware of your guides or loved ones in spirit. This is normal for an awakening Lightworker. Keep a journal, talk to someone if it helps. It is all part of returning to a natural way of being interconnected with world around you & the energy that makes up the universe.

body, heat or tingles up & down your spine, heat in your hands. The sensations can feel unusual & quite strong at times. Some Lightworkers get aches & pains in their body but they are nothing to worry about & are part of the deep Detox related to awakening. Of course if you are concerned about anything happening then go to speak to a professional, get the support you need. Breathe deeply & walk in nature, this will help to keep your energy grounded. When you start to emerge as a Lightworker it is a bit like plugging a piece of electrical equipment into the mains supply, you need to ‘earth’ the current or the circuits & the equipment will short out .

through your system, things such as traffic, loud music, crowds, excessive vibration or physical movement. Things you used to do may no longer be possible. This in itself can be a difficult adjustment. There may be a period of grieving for your old life, how things used to be. For example, you may not physically be able to cope with going to a nightclub with your friends anymore & they may not understand why. You may also start to feel the emotions & thought forms of people around you or even people many miles from you. •Spinning in your stomach or solar plexus The sensation of tightening, nausea or spinning in your Solar Plexus is to do with the changing nature of your relationships with other people & the world. The Solar Plexus is the chakra in your upper abdomen that relates to your personal power & how that power flows & moves between you & the world & between you & other people.

At first you may not realise you are changing; you may think your partner is changing & look to blame them or the relationship for increased friction or a lack of closeness.

It is not necessary for you to continue to feel everything going on in order to be of use to the world but it is an important phase you may go through.

Rapheal Ravenscroft

“ The ‘S’ Factor “

World renowned saxophonist, Raphael Ravenscroft, is recruiting budding film makers in and around Exeter. He was inspired to compose an album after reading and following the trail of Santiago in Paulo Coelho’s bestselling book ‘The Alchemist’.

The first track was recorded by members of an Exeter school. The choir will be travelling with Raphael to Westminster Abbey, on the 28th of this month, where they will perform ‘And a Little Child Shall Lead’ in a live appearance to Gordon Brown and many other celebrities.

Keen to work with and give undiscovered talent a chance to join the crew, Raphael’s team requires volunteers for three projects. A saxophone masterclass, will be hosting 140 participants, at the Phoenix, Gandy Street in late November. Volunteers are also required for the production of a new book and DVD, ‘How to play the Saxophone like a St☆r’

If you feel you would like to get involved please email, by October 26th a CV or competent skills to

Raphael is a renowned composer and saxophonist who is possibly remembered best for his long moody vignette on Gerry Rafferty’s late seventies mega-hit ‘Baker Street’. He has also worked with other legendary artists such as Marvin Gaye. He modestly said, “There were times when I was in the right place at the right time and I’m keen to pass that good fortune and knowledge on to others”.

The book, The Alchemist, is currently being turned into a film of the same name, directed by Laurence Fishburne and produced by The Weinstein Company. The new album ‘Santiago and the Soul of the World’ is hoped to be included in the musical accompaniment.

Raphael’s accolades are long and include working with Marvyn Gaye, but most people remember him for the long moody vignette, which sent Gerry Rafferty’s ‘Baker Street’ into the top ten. He also composed, played and produced the featured song ‘Feel it in the Air’ on Beanie Sigle’s album, The Coming, consequently becoming the defining

hip hop album of the genre.

If you would like to be part of this venture Raphael is looking for new talent in Devon and Cornwall to assist in the making of the DVD. Interested parties should email a CV or a paragraph about their current skills to:

SOCIAL MEDIA CONFERENCE ‘HITS’ EXETER A coffee in Starbucks, Exeter last August sparked two friends to hold the first social media conference in the South West. The conference was advertised using social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook and email only. The cost of the advertising and marketing was nil and attracted 180 delegates from all over the UK, with a ticket price of between £5 and £35 each. The main theme was based on the ability to make an investment into social media and gain a return. Local businesses and charities sent representatives. Public relations officer, Sarah Parkhouse from the Red Cross said, “We are using twitter already to communicate between offices, but I’m hoping to pick up tips to utilise it further”. The event, streamed live around the world via, also allowed delegates from the internet community to participate and started with a controversial video from Scott Gould, who introduced himself as ‘nobody’. He prepared participants for some straight talking from speakers

and panellists who included a local solicitor James Barisic and Carl Haggerty from Devon County Council. Trey Pennington, author and Social Media Manager for the Jones Group, informed everyone, hits on social media sites have taken over the number of visits to pornographic sites. James Barisic, from Every’s Solicitors in Exeter spoke candidly about his experiences as co-founder of their PhotoLegal podcast. Olivier Alain Blanchard, manager of, gave a demonstration regarding ‘Social Media: Return on Investment’ and was met with mixed reactions. Some felt the social media concept was not a new idea and others spoke out to say they did not feel they, “Had learnt anything new’, but only one person has requested a refund. These questions pre-empted outrage from the internet community following the conference and comments such as, “Without social media you people wouldn’t even be there!” and “How do you think this conference was organised?” were two comments projected regularly onto the large screen behind the panellists. Most delegates showed more en-

thusiasm in almost revolutionary tone, one predicting, “National newspapers will disintegrate and we are not going to be led by the nose, by the media anymore”. Rich Waghorn, creator of twitterbased ‘OutWithABang’, was asked whether he felt social media was partially responsible for the deterioration of the print industry. He replied, “Businesses wishing to thrive in the future can not stop this phenomenon”, then reiterated a recent comment by The Guardian’s Emily Bell, “We are entering the age of participation and journalists must engage”. Apart from the controversial questions all seemed glued to their seats until realising the Guildhall car park shut at 6pm. The conference finished at 6:30pm, but through the power of new media all were able to recap the nuggets from Sky’s, Maz Nadjm’s final spot on Ustream. com. LINKS:


INSPIRATION Section 30 Disperses Delinquents From this weekend the Countess Wear area is permanently covered by a Section 30 dispersal order under the Anti-social Behaviour Act 2003. Groups of up to thirty children and young adults have in the past terrorized the estate. The order will ensure that groups of children cannot loiter in the area. More than two unaccompanied children will be, “literally put in the back of a Police car and taken home”, says Liz Fisher, Housing Officer for Exeter City Council who has been involved in various neighbourhood initiatives to stop youth crime and vandalism around the city. “Things have calmed down and the vandalism has reduced since the large groups of teenagers have been moved on”, says Ros of Glasshouse Lane. A Section 30 was issued covering the Burnt House Lane a week ago and it is hoped this will be as effective as it has been in other areas of the country. Word Count 158 (No time to contact Police for a response yet – story still needs a response from the teenagers, a local parent who is against it?) Follow up articles on Burnt House Lane and Countess Wear – any crime and fear of crime reduction?
