Full Page Namaste I’m Tony Camacho, another journeyer on the path. Perhaps I am someone you’ve bumped elbows with or one that has stood at the periphery of your world. I am deeply honored to step into the shoes of The Whole Person Magazine, to step forward in carrying the torch. They are sacred shoes in many ways. I thread the laces of these shoes with much humility, with great excitement and joy. Our goal is to extend the footprint of the magazine beyond the self-imposed boundaries, beyond the consensus beliefs we are often smothered by, to erase the line of demarcation. I extend my gratitude and deep appreciation, and presumably yours as well, to Monte Farris and Connie Kudura for their countless hours of giving in sustaining the magazine. They did a laudable job. Much thanks to the two of them. The Whole Person Calendar has been in existence for over 30 years. It was founded by Leslie Snyder and then the reins were handed over to Monte Farris. They each in their own unique way were visionaries who brought their gifts and talents to the publication and to each of us. As most of you know, the magazine had printed its last publication as of June. But it was not meant to be. Yes, we are back, here to be a pillar of support and a wealth of information to quench your desires to grow. We (Team Whole Person) are dedicated to creating a magazine which amplifies the recognition that the indelible prints we leave, that hold significance are the ones left on the hearts of the readers.



In these tumultuous times, the Magazine as well as the readers are called to change. We’re invited to pry open our often clenched hand, to release the old, the cherished, and the substances we’ve come to think is a component of our being. It is, I think, an invitation which leads to growth. We open the door to a cavernous space to see ourselves with new eyes. These eyes penetrate beyond the densely laden layers we’ve become accustomed to wearing. Change elicits the new, and the dynamic us comes forward. We are on a mission, a focused undertaking to bring you information, Tools to Excavate, Elevate, Illuminate and Love. We are a resource, a method and means to aid in cultivating a heightened sense of consciousness within each of you. Our intention is to build community, a cohesive family, a recognition of the oneness of which we all are. We invite you to become stewards. Your opinions are valued and desired. We’ll be addressing ways to bring you deeper into the sharing and the unraveling of your gifts and talents. We see everyone holding a part of the puzzle, a puzzle piece which glitters and shines. Each of them bursts from the beauty in each of you. Join the family, be The Whole Person you’ve always been. It is time for us to remember who we truly are. Tony Camacho Publisher

What in the1 World summer is Michael Murphy Saying About Chemtrails

&

Geo-engineering

When you meet Michael Murphy he looks like a regular guy. A husband, a father, a nice guy who just might coach the neighborhood little league team, or help an old lady across the street. You’d never suspect that he’s spearheading a movement to uncover one of the most nefarious schemes in history. Michael Murphy is an every man, who just happened to stumble across and then expose the purported truth about chemtrails/ geo-engineering with his widely talked about 2010 documentary, What in The World Are They Spraying? Whole Person Magazine sat down with the outspoken and surprisingly mild mannered Michael Murphy on the eve of the premier of his newest film, Why in The World Are They Spraying? WP: Why in the world are they spraying? MM:

There are many agendas associated with chemtrails/geo-engineering programs, based on our research weather control is one of the main components. Aerosols are required to be in the sky to manipulate and modify our weather. We investigated and spoke to meteorologists, and people who had worked in the defense industry and scientists about the interaction between aerosols from geo-engineering programs and how they relate to the droughts and severe weather conditions we are seeing today. Historically these were very rare and now we see these on a regular basis. Without question it’s related to the aerosols that are being sprayed into our skies.

WP: Why would the United States government want to control the weather? What would they have to gain or benefit? MM:

That was the question I first asked myself when I found out and I started investigating the reasons behind geo-engineering. When we looked into this, we found that weather control is very profitable for certain corporations. So if you control the weather, you can control every food supply and every political system. Again it’s a very effective way to consolidate and make a tremendous amount of money on the Chicago mercantile exchange where weather is actually being traded.



WP: What types of chemicals are being sprayed into our atmosphere? MM:

There are many, but in the first film we covered the primary ingredients of geo-engineering programs, which are aluminum, barium and strontium. What geo-engineers are proposing to do, though according to them none of these programs have been started, is spray 20 million tons of toxic aluminum oxide and other heavy metals into our sky for what is the stated goal of cooling our planet. Aluminum being reflective, the theory is that it will reflect sunlight back into space. Since we have started researching, we have found a number of studies showing that putting aerosols into our skies will only temporarily cool the planet




WP: What are the symptoms that someone might have if they are high in aluminum or some of the other chemicals used in geo-engineering?

in certain regions, after they spray on a warm sunny day the temperature will drop, but at night these aerosols act as a blanket that trap heat. We’ve seen an incredible increase in night time highs. Again, these are NASA studies, and University studies that are indicating this. So the question is, if it’s not about cooling the planet, then what truly is the agenda? And we came across weather control.

WP: What are the long term effects of spraying aerosols into our atmosphere? MM: There are a number of consequences that geo-engineers are very open about. Number one, is the fact that their programs will shred our ozone. We now have a huge ozone hole above the northern hemisphere. Our protective layer is being destroyed every time they spray. Geo-engineers are also open about the environmental consequences which are changes in PH soil around the world. Now our soils are changing to alkaline. The primary ingredients in the geo-engineering programs, aluminum, barium and strontium are now being found around the world which will change acidic soil to alkaline soil, that will destroy plant life, because it requires an acidic soil to grow. And of course weather pattern disruptions. Geo-engineers are open about the fact that their programs that disperse aerosols into our atmosphere will create drought. These particles act as what is called cloud condensation nuclei, so when water evaporates over the ocean, typically it will coagulate in the sky and it will combine with other particles and fall like rain. When aerosols, such as the main ingredients of geo-engineering programs are introduced into the sky, it’s devastating. We get the intense flooding in the midwest and on the east coast. Unless as they want it this summer, they want that rainfall to drift and create a drought. Again, it’s very profitable for certain corporations.

MM:

summer

WP: What can an everyday person do to combat the toxic chemicals that are being sprayed into our atmosphere? MM:

Many things. On a personal level, our health needs to come first. We need vibrance. We need to be healthy when addressing this issue. So organic foods are very important, as well as undergoing various chelation methods. Many people now are high in aluminum and barium, the primary ingredients of geo-engineering programs. These metals are in their blood so obviously it’s going to effect their health. Meeting with a naturpathic physician and really learning how to chelate these out of our bodies is probably the first step.



Some of the other risks are that it will create droughts in Africa and Asia, and geo-engineers state their programs could disrupt the food supply for over 2 billion people. From rain tests, which are coming in from all over the world, we are seeing this geo-engineering footprint of aluminum, barium and strontium. These metals match a number of geo-engineering patents that were designed to specifically spray these metals into the sky. They also match what geo-engineers deny that they are spraying. However what we are finding in rain tests, and what we see in the sky, on a regular basis in terms of these long trails that do not dissipate, is that they spread out and block the sun. It’s the expressed goal of the stratospheric geo-engineering programs. Many people are now becoming aware of an issue called “Global Dimming.” Now we have 20% less sunlight hitting the earth than just a few decades ago. And again that’s an expressed interest of geo-engineering.

Many different things. There are acute symptoms on heavy spray days. People experience nausea, headache, irritability, dry mouth, high blood pressure, and the amount of heart attacks and strokes increase when we have a heavy canopy of chemicals. Long term effects with high levels of aluminum damages our neurological system. We now have documented cases of people in their 40s being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Barium lowers our immune system. So an increase in colds, other illnesses and even cancer. Some people are complaining of respiratory problems. Respiratory mortality has gone from 8 to number 3 in the last few years as the leading cause of death. We have seen a huge jump in coughing and hacking. I have spoken to several physicians who have told me that respiratory illness has gone up tenfold in the past few years.

WP: Is it possible that the side effects and ramifications of the Global manipulation of our weather could get way out of control?

Chemtrails/geo-engineering in the skies

MM:

The potential for monetary and political power being consolidated into the hands of a few, they are aware of that, but the consequences are drastic to the planet. Our eco system is being thrown off balance from top to bottom. We have fungal growth around the world which is destroying much of our plant life, forests are collapsing, and natural organic foods are not growing. MONSANTO now has a seed that can grow in these new conditions: heavy contaminated soils, drought conditions, and conditions where we have too much rain. Yes they are aware of the power that they are able to consolidate through the use of these programs, and oddly aware of the future implications of the planet. When people play God the outcome is never good. I think power is an addiction. Geoengineer, David Keith made a comment “Geo-engineering gives man God-like power.” Power and addictions can be blinding. Continued on Page 8




Continued from Page 7

WP: When I watched your first film, What in The World Are They Spraying? I was shocked to find the geoengineers so removed from the people they were affecting. Do they see it as just a scientific experiment?

1/3 col.

MM: It blew my mind, one of the issues which we included in Why in The World Are They Spraying? is the issue of equity. Geo-engineers state there will be winners and losers with our programs. How do you reimburse the countries that have lost all their crops? It’s very amazing to hear these people with this type of power. The best thing to call them is weapons. How do you deal with this issue of equity? It’s really concerning that they are trying to play God.

WP: Politically what can the average person do? MM:

I think awareness is key. We’ve taken many routes and certainly many of our officials at the upper level, most of them in the senate and congress, are supported by the very corporations that are benefiting from these programs. We have had success at the local level and at the county level. In Maui we started a street campaign. Awareness, while it’s growing, we are still moving towards getting critical mass. Why in The World Are They Spraying? we believe will get us to critical mass because it ties into weather control and the finances of the certain corporations that benefit from this. So handing out DVDs for free, YouTube clips of our film, and other information that is credible and prudent to move forward in getting our population not only aware but activated. I hand out DVDs for free, and I’ve started the coalition against geo-engineering with my co-producer of the first film, GW Griffin. We also do street outreaches where we share information about this issue and hand out DVDs for free. Right now awareness is a key factor that we have to focus on. Once we have this critical mass we can bring it to the county level, and state level. I’ve had a number of state senators contact me showing their interest in moving forward in getting ordinances passed. There are literally geo-engineering programs everywhere. With that said, we have to move quickly getting ordinances passed. In reviewing the geo-engineering conference footage, geoengineers spoke about public perception and how to sell this to the public. There are three levels of people that they classify. First level are people that have no knowledge of geo-engineering, and those were the people they were not concerned about. They had a middle level of people that had some knowledge but could be easily persuaded to accept these programs. Third classification were those that studied and were well aware of these programs. That was their area of concern. They stated that these were the people that would protest and speak out.

WP: But according to the US government they are not spraying?

summer 3

These programs are about consolidating an enormous amount of both monetary and political power into the hands of the few at the expense of every living thing on the planet. Period.

MM:

Yes, that’s right. There has been no admittance. Now they are talking about just doing tests in New Mexico and putting aerosols into the sky. Bill Gates has been a big funder into geo-engineering and he has a connection to Monsanto.

WP: On the topic of Monsanto, how do GMOs relate to geo-engineering? MM:

GMOs, Genetically Modified Organisms is a way to genetically modify a seed. They relate to geo-engineering in a couple different ways. Without question geo-engineering destroys crops, these metals are sprayed into our sky and they fall into our soil; heavy metals and contaminants are very toxic to our crops. Aluminum oxide, free-form aluminum is the primary ingredient in geo-engineering and is extremely toxic to plant life. Most plants and trees have a root system that will shut off when these toxic chemicals are introduced. The plant does not get it’s nutrients and it dies a very slow death. So geoengineering is toxic a couple of ways; through the contamination of our soil, but also through the drought conditions, through the flooding conditions, and through the overgrowth of fungus. Geo-engineering programs block our sun which creates an overgrowth of fungus, and that destroys plants as well. Monsanto has a patent on an abiotic stress resistant seed. What is an abiotic stress resistant seed? Abiotic stress is everything that geo-engineering creates. It’s the droughts, it’s the floods, it’s the heavy metal contamination in our soils. We are now seeing around the world that natural organic foods are declining.



In Why in The World Are They Spraying? we interviewed a farmers, and they are seeing between a 60% and 70% decline in their ability to grow their natural organic yield. So through the death and destruction of crops, the farmers have two choices, they can either sell their farm land at pennies on the dollar, where a company owned by George Soros comes in and offers them a very low price, and it appears to be a land grab. Or the farmer can go to this new abiotic stress resistant genetically modified seed. We go back to geo-engineers stating that “our programs might create drought in Africa and Asia” and that’s what they are telling the American people. Why wouldn’t they tell the American people that it could create droughts here? There’s nothing different and special about the geography in Africa and Asia, or America that would cause it to have droughts. When you saturate our atmosphere with metal particulates it will create drought, period. What they are doing if you’ve noticed is an excessive push by the Obama administration and Monsanto to bring their genetically modified seeds into those regions. And if a country is growing natural organic foods, why would they go to medically Continued on Page 16

A Metaphor for the Mystic path to Enlightenment The Matrix was one of the most popular and thought-provoking movies of all time. Viewers all over the world were captivated by the film’s primary message: People get into deep trouble when they mistake what they perceive for reality. What most viewers do not realize is that prior to the release of this groundbreaking film, western intelligence agencies were already using the term “the Matrix” to describe today’s world. This was in contrast to their work with remote viewers, who would “escape the matrix” to gather intelligence. Art truly does imitate life.

11

In the movie, the Matrix is an elaborate Artificial Intelligence computer simulation that’s so captivating that people mistake it for reality. People perceive they are walking about and interacting with others, but their physical bodies are actually submerged in fluid-filled pods, “plugged into” the Matrix, while their vital life force is harnessed to power the Matrix. After Neo (Keanu Reaves) learns the truth, with the help of Morpheus’s (Lawrence Fishburne) training, he is able to overcome his misconception that the Matrix is reality. Neo rebels against the machines that create his false reality and, eventually, he escapes the limitations of the Matrix. To others, he has developed superhuman abilities, but, “in reality,” he has merely recognized the truth. Escaping the Matrix is a metaphor for the mystic path to enlightenment. The Matrix can be defined as the world that we

by Edwin Harkness Spina

perceive, which includes the physical world, as well as higher planes of emotions and thoughts, which also affect us. Within the Matrix, are countless fear-based thoughts and emotions that condition us to accept limitations. We are taught that we have little power, and what little power we do have, we are advised to delegate to authority figures and experts. Swimming in a sea of negative thoughts, we are prompted to use our creative ability to imagine even more negative thoughts. Without introspection, the Matrix gets darker and more dense. Anyone who blindly accepts these prevalent, negative thoughts will have his or her life path dictated by the Matrix. But those who recognize that it is our collective thoughts and beliefs that power the Matrix will recognize the way out. When we incarnate on earth, we temporarily forget the higher truth of who we are. Our life mission is to remember, to connect with our innermost self, so that we may transcend the Matrix.

within each of us. As your negative beliefs are purified through regular contact with the “light” of your divine nature, unhealthy emotions, such as fear and anger, will naturally begin to diminish, and you’ll be free to transcend to higher states of consciousness. You will “download” more of your own true self, while simultaneously and automatically attracting others of similar vibration. Your world will become more synchronistic. You will repel angry, fearful people, and those who stick around will become calmer and more centered. You will radiate love. By simply being in higher consciousness, you will have a greater effect on the world than the most gifted orators and political leaders. The higher your consciousness and energy are vibrating, the faster your thoughts will manifest. When you align with your innermost self, you are aligned more closely with the Source of all creation. At the apex of your individual consciousness, you are connected with The One. You then have at your disposal the entire universe to help you manifest the highest good for all.

The reality we perceive with our senses is not the true reality, but merely a small portion of reality, masquerading as the whole. But, unlike the “alternate reality” that Neo must extricate himself from, in our “reality,” there is no need to rebel. Rather, our goal should be to transcend. We want to “be in this world, but not of it.”

In actuality, we are single points of awareness in the Oneness that is Reality. What we interpret as the physical world is the projection of this awareness, which is taking place in the Mind of God. We are, as Shakespeare pointed out, merely “actors” in a divine play.

The outer world is a reflection of our inner thoughts and beliefs, whether individual or collective, which have been conditioned by our experience in the Matrix. Consequently,

When we wake up to this knowledge, the play does not stop. We are free to act or interact, in bliss and peace, unattached to the Matrix. We have within us the power to create “heaven on earth” and escape the Matrix. WP

the Matrix is a learning environment, where we get feedback on how our thoughts manifest. Thankfully, our negative thoughts do not (typically) manifest instantaneously. Otherwise, we would risk the spontaneous destruction of our world by thinking negative thoughts. Clearing yourself of negative energies through daily meditation can provide a direct link to the “ultimate reality,” i.e., the pure consciousness residing

“ ”

Moshe The Best Advice Ever

by Sarah Larsen, MD

(22)

I believe that every person has a purpose and the real work of our lives is to discover it! We become the person we are meant to be because every human being has value and purpose. The real work of our lives is to become aware, awakened and be all that we are here to be! It is amazing how much fun it can be to discover who you were meant to be. Becoming myself has been filled with laughter, tears, connection, knowing, growth, mistakes, disappointments, indecision, embarrassment, reading, coaching, and deep meaning. It is a process!

One process you can adapt: 1. Embrace all that you are. Know that inside you is who you are meant to be! Trust that everything happens for a reason.

unarius

2. Notice that you are more than you recognize most of the time. You have buried under some false fronts this quirky, wild, marvelous you. My false fronts were people pleasing, submissive Asian, and approval junkie. Many of us have a suitcase filled with fronts that cover up the reason we chose to come to the planet! 3. Love the false fronts and let them go. For me my false frontscovered my deep insecurity about being lovable. When I loved me andlet my self talk reflect I understood why I said yes when I felt no to a request. I could eventually say no

We become the person we are meant to be because every human being has value and purpose.

and feel okay. We cannot not think our way into becoming ourself. We must love, feel, and take action! 4. Take time for recreation. Break down the word to re-create. Actively stop from time to time and drastically change your daily activity. Day dream while walking in a nearby town, swing in the park until a line of kids are saying “hey, those are for us! Smell all the flowers in the flower shop. Bird watch. In other words, try new things leisurely. It is in this time I revealed to myself what I really liked and what I didn’t and connected with a place inside myself that was still undiscovered, and unconditioned. It brought me into the ever

5. Build your letting go muscle. I actively started letting things go because I can’t do what I am meant to do if I am doing what I am not meant to be doing. I made space and time for the things that truly matter most! I stopped hanging out with some people. I let go of projects. I moved. I got comfortable being uncomfortable. 6. Feel! I had to take a look at what my behaviors were that kept me from really feeling. Sometimes the behavior was eating a pint of ice cream because I didn’t want to feel lonely. Sometimes it was shopping so I could feel like I was enough. I learned to sit with the feeling and to be okay in the moment. Breathing rather than doing. Like your breath something is always ending and another thing beginning. YOU are a miracle. What you seek is seeking you! WP Dr. Sarah Larsen can be reached through www.drsarahlarsen.com

Michael Murphy continued from Page 8 modified seeds? Many of them are terminator seeds, which do not germinate. Traditionally farmers have been able to get seeds from their crops and use them to plant for their next season. Monsanto is coming in as a solution to this problem and selling these terminator seeds so the farmers have to keep coming back and buying these seeds over and over. We are dependent on natural seeds, rain and sunshine. Natural food is declining very quickly, and the concern we have is that within a year or two, we will not be able to be dependent on nature. Then we’ll be dependent on the stores. This is the shift of power that generations and generations have been talking about. They don’t have it yet. We still have the ability to grow from nature, but if we allow this shift to happen we will not have a future for us or for our children.

You can go to our website, www.whyintheworldaretheyspraying.com. DVDs are for sale, but we encourage anyone who purchased them to copy, duplicate and hand them out for free. As a result we have had street campaigns all over the world and we are waking people up. So it’s a very effective way. The website also has some other information and links to credible sites.

WP: Spearheading a movement is an unusual job. How did you get into writing and producing documentaries on geo-engineering? MM:

WP

I was told, “Just do what you love.” So I started creating videos addressing political issues that not too many people were aware of. Then somebody invited me to a geo-engineering conference, and reluctantly I accepted. When I returned home I wrote an article titled, “What in The World Are They Spraying?” Not expecting it to get much air time, I sent it into Counter Currents, (countercurrents.org) an online publication, not knowing it would get any traction. I put my email address on it, and the next morning when I woke up my inbox was flooded. The article went viral and translated into 7 different languages. At that time people started asking me, if I send you a plane ticket will you come and document this by video? So that is how the first film got started. I never had planned on doing a documentary, but all the doors were open. The first plane ticket was to California, and when we were there, someone contacted me to go to Hawaii. When I was in Hawaii, people from Belgium contacted me. I literally just followed the doors that were open. From there we were able to put together a video that was considered to be groundbreaking for this issue. Now chemtrails/geo-engineering is known to most people by the first film. The response we are getting to the second film, Why in The World Are They Spraying? is that it will go mainstream, and this issue will have to be addressed. Getting these programs stopped is the main goal. It has to

be the main goal and focus. What we have done is created a tool with these films to awaken the public so we can get these programs stopped

WP: What is your next film going to be about? MM:

Who in the Hell is Spraying? If the doors open. I only will do a film if I feel strongly, if their is a calling, and if the flow is there. I have thought of, “Who in The Hell is Spraying? Getting A Closer Look.” We kind of hinted at the corporations that benefit from these programs. So What in the world, Why in the world, and Who in the hell could be a film. A natural progression.

WP: There were quite a few screenings for your first movie in Southern California, tell us about the potential screenings for your newest movie. MM: Absolutely, screenings are a very effective way to get the word out into the community. I’ve seen county ordinances started, and action groups formed. Something happens when we get together and it’s positive when we adress these things. On our website, we have a section for screenings. We have artwork and tools that will make the screenings more effective. We had thousands of screenings around the world for the first film. It’s something I continue to push. Hopefully we will have a screening at the Gateway for Why in the World are We Spraying?

WP: Speaking of the Gateway, how did you get connected with them? MM: It was actually through social networking.

16

I was very reluctant to get involved with social networking, but I saw the power in it. When we bring the issues that are important to us out, even through an avenue that creates distraction from reality, we can also use those tools to bring truth and awareness into our community. It’s been an effective tool for us to use. And the Gateway does create great work and I’m very supportive. .WP:

Last, but not least, how and when do you think you became a whole person? MM: That answer would have to be somewhere in the future. I think we are always growing. The term of becoming whole, well I don’t think that goal has been achieved by any of us yet. But I think that is what living is, we are moving towards becoming whole. We are all growing in ways. And that’s the fun of life, looking back and saying, I’ve grown a little today, or over the past year. WP Michael Murphy is a writer, producer and political activist.

Book Review

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” -Harold Whitman

Frequency:

The Power of Personal Vibration Penney Peirce (Beyond Words Pub., 2009, 272 pgs., $15.00)

In Frequency, Penny Peirce writes: “As old forms dissolve, you might experience disillusionment. You may have

little

certainly

left

about who you are, what you can rely on, or why you’re here. The failure of old structures is a natural way that life is preparing you for your new self.” As many of us are experiencing as we go through “the shift” in 2012, a lot of the changes in our internal and external world are often confusing, overwhelming, and at times even quite physically and emotionally painful, as we try to make sense of it all. This is why it can be extremely helpful to have an experienced guide, someone who understands what you are going through, explain to you why you are feeling the way you do and, more importantly, how you can feel better.

19

The first step is to understand that everything is made of energy, and energy vibrates at different speeds. For example, did you know that low-frequency electromagnetic waves have a long wavelength and low energy, while high- frequency electromagnetic waves have a short wavelength and high energy? And what does this have to do with you? Everything! Because if everything is made out of energy, then that includes YOU! And so if you are only aware of lower density vibrations, then by default that’s where your attention will go, and that’s what you’ll experience! Says Penny: “I want you to feel and imagine yourself as a porous, vibrational being merged into a vast field of vibrations; we are not solid lumps on a rock of a planet, but a collection of energies penetrating and being penetrated by millions of other energies.”

ENCC

“ ”

To fully wake up from the dream, you’ll need an everyday experience of the soul, of your own highest frequency state. Penny Peirce

So, how does one experience more peace, love, joy, happiness and bliss, as well as be able to tune into other people’s energy and become more clairvoyant (the ability to know things about other people/things intuitively), telepathic (communicate without words) or psychic (sensitive to influences or forces of a nonphysical or supernatural nature)? The answer is by becoming conscious of and tuning into one’s own highest vibration or home frequency.

Inside all of us is our own highest vibration that is totally unique to us, but most of us are not yet aware of this. How do you discover your home frequency? By tuning into what makes you truly, authentically happy. What gets you excited? What “floats your boat” big time? Forget what the world thinks, what do YOU think/feel? Nobody can tell you what your highest frequency is simply because, as Imentioned, it is unique for each of us. Therefore, no one can do this inner-work but YOU. Oftentimes something excites us, but we think, “Oh, I couldn’t make a living doing that…” and we immediately cut ourselves off from own inner- wisdom! This path is all about learning to trust your inner-knowing, higher-self (rather than the outside world/authority figures, which is what most of us have been programmed to do). First, find out what truly excites you, and then trust the details will manifest perfectly as you continue to hold onto this frequency with great love andexcitement. So let your great adventure begin knowing in your heart that what serves your highest good will also serve the planet’s. To help you re-program the mind, Penny also includes some empowering soul affirmations such as: I remember what I am here for and I want to get on with it! I am excited about my own destiny! I can easily hold my own frequency, even when other people vibrate at a lower level. I could go on and on about this book because, for myself, it was the perfect book at the perfect time. I say this because although I had figured out a lot of this stuff piecemeal, Penny lays it all out in a way that is understandable and easy to grasp (even the parts on quantum physics/science!). Frequency by Penny Peirce gets my highest recommendation. WP Michael Jeffreys is a Los Angeles based spiritual teacher/intuitive and author. His blog is www.mjeffreys.com

Crop

MSIA-1

From Crop Circles to Peace on Earth, or, Brother Can you Spare a Paradigm?

T

By Suzanne Taylor

here’s a breakthrough story waiting to be made public. It’s about an intelligence that has been visiting the Earth that uses crop fields to make artworks. Since the 1970s, when crop circles came under consistent scrutiny, there have been more than 5,000 occurrences spread over about 50 countries. The formations have been examined to the point where there are reports by science labs, published in scientific journals, which testify to sophisticated communications being sent by a non-human source. The science that has been done, however, has not been enough to crack a shell of skepticism that surrounds this paradigm-changing phenomenon. Cultures typically resist changes to fundamental ideas about their relationship with the universe, and the truth about the circles would provide the biggest leap our cosmology ever has made. I’ve been responsible for the two circle documentaries made with Hollywood production standards. I was the Executive Producer for CROP CIRCLES: Quest for Truth, a history of what has gone on. And I produced and directed What On Earth? Inside the Crop Circle Mystery, to showcase the most interesting people in the crop circle community. Both have won awards, and The New York Times, which hadn’t mentioned crop circles for decades, gave What On Earth? a very good review! The media has done a poor job, however, of dealing with the circles. Programs made by cable stations in the U.S. have been short on accuracy and long on cynicism. But, hoaxes aside, whatever or whomever is delivering these artworks, it’s not us. It defies the imagination to foresee all that would happen if we accepted as fact that there is off-planet intelligence whereby we’d all be on the same side - a united humanity in relation to “the other.” As someone in What On Earth?, says, “That could be what saves this civilization.” Personal growth is a lifetime’s work, but shifting the worldview that holds all our societal problems in place could happen overnight. You wouldn’t find any disagreement today about the trouble the world is in. But, beyond cheerleads for us to be all that we can be, where eventually enough people will be evolved enough so that 100 monkeys will shift our worldview to a perspective based on oneness, we don’t talk about the need to address the sense of ourselves that gave rise to much of what challenges us. Is a waiting game the only option? With no sign we are near the tipping point, what else could we do? This is what I’m focusing on now. And I think I have a key. We need public conversation about the discrepancy between the quantum perspective that science has progressed to and our outdated worldview that’s based on Newtonian physics. Newton’s is a dualistic, mechanistic framework of opposing parts, encompassed by space and existing in time. But, in the quantum reality, which goes beyond space and time, everything is entangled. We are interconnected and interdependent. We are one. Where greed prevails and war is our method of mediation, we don’t have the platform for issues like global warming to best be addressed. Some new agreement, worldwide, has to take us over. Slo-

gans could be, “More for you is more for me,” and, “Whoever does the most good wins.” An ad campaign could help. But, until we educate humanity to what science has evolved to, we won’t come up with anything proactive to do. In a webinar series, Doorways to Another Reality, that I hosted this summer for Evolver Intensives, Stephan Schwartz tuned us into the basis for the quantum perspective. And Edgar Mitchell, 6th man to walk on the moon and founder of IONS, spoke eloquently to that subject. Although what they were dealing with was familiar to me, the combination of both of their bodies of thought had a profound effect on my thought process. I saw the substantiation for that next worldview, where being a caring, compassionate species trumps being a selfish, warlike one. Here are some excerpts from Needed, a New Perspective, a very good paper that Mitchell wrote. “Some 2,500 years ago modern religious stories and traditions were spawned from the efforts of a few inspired individuals from various cultures who endeavored to make sense of reality. Our contemporary world view, in large part, has remained pretty much the same since the days of those early thinkers…civilization’s understanding of the nature of reality and hence our survival and future wellbeing is entirely dependent upon the emergence of a completely different worldview, a new paradigm, one that properly addresses, in verifiable scientific terms, our collective relationship to each other, to the environment, to nature, and to the Universe… based on the concepts of inter-connectedness, cooperation, and interdependence in all human endeavors… “Science can support this shift by providing reliable and credible empirical data…Since the 17th century, science has been based on the belief that all phenomena are the results of blind but predictable interactions of matter. This orientation has led to a reductionist view of reality and a materialistic focus - one of consumption, competition, conflict and domination. However, by the end of the 20th century, new scientific evidence had emerged from the field of quantum mechanics and the study of

so-called supernatural phenomena that render the reductionist view of reality not only untenable but incorrect as well…Growing evidence suggests that myriad misunderstood phenomena in nature, be they physical, mental, or spiritual, may be best explainable by a new framework that treats events in the world as interdependent components of an inseparable whole... “Just as modern Homo Sapiens displaced Neanderthal man, so too must modern man evolve to the next level of further knowledge, sophistication and refinement…We must swiftly evolve to the next level by eradicating pervasive ignorance concerning who we really are and why we are here…Humankind’s next phase of evolution will be more an evolution in thought, knowledge, spirituality and consciousness than one involving our biology or physiology…the “every man for himself” paradigm fueled by greed will be supplanted by the “all for one and one for all” paradigm fueled by a new spirit of altruism and unity. Predicated on credible science, peoples of the world must come to understand that we really are only as strong as our weakest link, that what we do to others we do to ourselves, and that we are indeed our brother’s keeper.” To summarize, we need a new ideational framework in which humanity pulls together, superseding a value system where whoever has the most toys wins. Science has given us the underpinning for re-creating our story. A new science-based vision won’t take hold, though, unless people know it exists. And, when they do, there will be a natural swing to treating each other differently. So, the bottom line right here, right now, is to get conversation happening, educating us on TV, in print, and on the net; spreading to conferences, to classrooms, and to homes. Getting a new vision, a new story, a new paradigm, a new worldview should be priority number one. You can watch What On Earth? on iTunes, or get the DVD, with an hour of bonus material in addition to the feature film, at www.CropCircleMovie.com.

Suzanne Taylor, Producer/Director of What On Earth? Inside the Crop Circle Mystery, has been involved with films since she graduated Phi Beta Kappa and summa cum laude from NYU. Having been an actress, she crossed over to the other side of the camera as the Executive Producer of the 2002 feature documentary, CROP CIRCLES: Quest for Truth. The new film, which was well-reviewed in The New York Times, won the Award for Best Feature Documentary at the UFO Congress Film Festival, where the first film got the Audience Award. What On Earth? also got the award for Excellence in Paranormal Filmmaking from the Paranormal Symposium and Film Festival, and it recently had its TV premiere on CPT12, a Colorado PBS station. Suzanne is a crop circle authority on the Ancient Aliens television series on the History Channel. She has a license to produce a TEDx West Hollywood event, and s program based on Doorways to Another Reality is in the planning stages. As the founder of Mighty Companions, a non-profit dedicated to consciousness expansion, her Los Angeles home is a gathering place for forwardthinking activists. A fine arts post-impressionist painter, Suzanne had a one woman show. She is an accomplished chef, and author of The Anybody Can Make It, Everybody Will Love It Cookbook. She writes a blog, Making Sense of These Times, wwwTheConversation.org, where posts about progressive ideas include considerations of how consciousness might evolve and how instrumental the crop circle phenomenon could be in that regard.

Let’s Talk Chakras!!!!!! 1/4 Levine single This is an ongoing series by Kenton David Bell, a Master Spiritual Healer, Clairvoyant, Channel, Life Coach and Published Author. www.kentondavidbell.com email: Kenton@kentondavidbell.com

Everything is Energy…

Wayne Perry

Chakra is the Sanskrit word meaning “wheel” or “turning.” These “chakras” are energy vortices that can be found supporting the human physical vessel. It has been my personal understanding from working with these vortices, and the teachings from spirit, that these energy centers support physical life from the non-physical or spiritual realms into the physical. These vortices when off balance, or not metabolizing fully, can create distortions in our reality. When a Chakra has been “out of balance” for some time it can and does lead to physical disease. All disease begins as an energetic imbalance, which stem from something within your internal landscape needing attention. When we begin to work and honor these naturally organic systems within the body, we truly begin to master our health as well as evolve into higher consciousness. Everything is Energy…

The First Chakra Color, Red; Location, Base of Spine.

25

The first chakra is located at the base of the spine. It points down towards the earth. Chakras 1 and 7 are the only chakras with only one aspect to them. Chakras 2-6 have two aspects to them. A front and back. The first Chakra reflects and metabolizes the life energies of survival, connection to our family of origin as well as our tribe. The First Chakra is also our grounding to the planet. When we experience “imbalances” in these realms, it is our Soul’s wisdom calling forth a time of growth. Instead of seeing these as imbalances, see them as opportunities for transformation. For every physical plane imbalance, there is an aspect of our soul ready to bring forth the wisdom, love and transformation. It is the exercising of our free will that calls this into being. It’s all yours for the asking!

Poverty Consciousness and the First Chakra Perhaps you’ve felt a poverty consciousness throughout your life. Having or not having money has little to do with the consciousness of poverty. One can have much money and still feel broke.

Here are some questions to probe the energies of poverty in the first chakra. Has your family or your tribe (cultural/societal) carried this consciousness in it’s lineage? Are you grounding enough of your own energy through you to manifest your own dreams and desires? Do you feel deserving of what you truly want?

Are you open to receive that which you desire?

Spiritual Evolution and the First Chakra How does your “security” feel when you think about manifesting the life you truly want? So often working with clients, I’ll notice they are powerfully assisting others in the manifestation of their dreams and desires, however at the cost of their own dreams. Often issues of security come up as one contemplates pursuing their dreams. You might ask yourself why? There is no ”good” reason that anyone needs to give up their own dream for the sake of another, other than to learn not to do it.

Ask and ponder these questions: “Will I be supported in the manifestation of my dreams?”

This can hold true often to the detriment of the individual’s evolution into greater self expression. As constantly evolving spiritual beings, it is important for us to recognize this balance of feeling safe and secure before we can launch ourselves into the higher pursuits of spiritual evolution. In order for you to powerfully manifest into the physical world you must be grounded into and through the root chakra. In order for us to raise families and communities that allow and support the individual to aspire to greater expressions of the self, we need to bring great awareness to our relationship within our first chakra. This awareness is the stuff that changes worlds!

“The Reward of Patience is Patience” St. Augustine

“Will others still like and love me if I pursue my own path?”

Patience is a quality that we can find in the first chakra. In order to manifest that which we are bringing forth into the physical it requires us to have patience and stability of vision.

“Do I manifest others’ dreams and desires, but at the cost of my own?”

Am I a patient person in general?

“Am I willing to sacrifice my desires and dreams for that of another”?

Nothing is more powerful than a Soul on Fire… Our familial and tribal energies often have us side on the condition of what is safe for survival. It’s the collective VS what is needed for the individual to evolve.

Questions to ask yourself: Do I have patience to manifest that which my soul longs to realize? Do I look for quick solutions, or fast “fixes” to problems or issues? Where does my courage, fortitude and steadfastness come from? Next issue… The Second Chakra

2012 Jakala 36

Aries - 3/21 - 4/19 This month is a time to turn inward and contemplate, if you can stand the heat. The heat is the accumulation of life’s circumstances that have come and gone, except for the residual dust like energy, which surrounds you. While you have lots of support and once you break through, you will have tremendous awareness. The road requires some willingness to process. Many have talked about the dark night of the soul; like what Jesus and the Buddha went through. All of us take this journey at some point. The way you live your life, your morals and the hidden adventure you seek in the wrong places will come up. You will feel the burden you are carrying and would rather not see. You will become aware of the interference in your guidance, and supported by an unknown courage within, you will start going with the flow of what is, rather than giving in to the immaturity of youthful excitement and making a big deal out of it.

Gemini - 5/21 - 6/20

Your innocence is one of your greatest assets. How is that, some might say? Well, at the core of your being is an infinite innocence that deepens the more you know and experience. It is the essence of love and of humanity’s evolution. You are ripe now to step into your innocence and let it be. You are very ripe because there is a receptivity supporting you that you barely know. As you begin to step into the deeper recesses of your being, you will see and know.

Rosenthal 32 You have been focused on feeling like the outsider for way too long. This shift toward settling into your inner self will invite the feeling of being an outsider to vanish, and you will start discovering kindred souls all around you. Some of those kindred souls will be intimate partners and some will be intimate friends. Honor and respect yourself and surrender to the childlike innocence within and you will find your way just fine.

As you surrender to what is the exhaustion that is quietly there pulling you into old age will begin to lift. As you turn in many sorrows will reveal themselves. Simply notice what is without attempting to do anything about what is. Most of these sorrows are from the past and it is only the residual dust that is left. Now! There is a subtle guilt reaction to make up for past actions as well as a social stigma of carrying guilt; be willing to let it go, now! Guilt is way over rated, makes up for nothing and robs you of manifesting your potential. The guilt is all in your mind and you can count on the rebel within to catapult you into the clear. You will need patience to let all this go and the master within you will emerge with more clarity and certainty as you practice letting go. This is a journey into awareness. It is your job to do the work, to sit in contemplation and to observe what is being “ok”.

Your future is one of sharing with others, the blessings and gifts you discover within. Doing so will only unveil more and more gifts. The more you give the more you get. Enjoy!

Taurus - 4/20 - 5/20

Courage, courage and more courage will take you into the future of the new growth which you will find sprouting forth from and in the most unlikely places. That new growth comes on its own terms beyond place and time. Be ready to let it go as well, and see, be and move on!

Transformation is a process of utilizing many arms of your awareness at the same time. The perceived beauty and danger is accommodated simultaneously. There are chains that hold you in place and force you to follow beliefs that were given to you before you could think for yourself. You have a sword ready to cut through all that has run its course allowing you to step into the you that is uniquely you! The dream that you once saw emerges again in a mature way and you ask at first, “is it really possible?” Deep inside there is a force of goodness that has barely begun to flower and its flowering is the direction that manifests your dream. The master within is your guide into the transformation you are destined for. As you begin to walk your path of destiny, you learn to let go more and more of the trappings you were given and notice the real you growing up. Congratulations!

Cancer - 6/21 - 7/22 Get ready for the veils to come apart completely and step into the golden light of deeper awareness. The interference dissipates and the discerning intuitive golden light of awareness takes over so much more completely. Your new vision is the guiding force of the trajectory of your path. You will stand up into a new being-ness with wings of awareness that lift you from the mire of earth bound sense awareness, dissolving into the domain of love. The journey is a path of letting go, let it all go even the new vision. You will pass through the valley of despair, aloneness and isolation; so what, follow the light and notice the new growth right in your hand.

Leo - 7/23 - 8/22 Conditioning, conditioning and more conditioning: Please do an inventory on the conditioning you have been handed. You are covered with it, even though you are showing your true self, there is conditioning still strapped to your back and surrounding you. Please know that this is normal. However once you know, and if you have a desire to instead know your true self, and set that self free, you must remove the conditioning. Where you start is with concise examination of the conditioning. Make conscious choices on whether the conditioning really fits you, and if so, then choose it, if not, let it go. The field of possibilities is way open to you and for you right now. Once you begin to move on, it is normal to look

back a little, because you have lived with the conditioning for so long, it can be felt to be an old friend. And, now is the time for the deep you to breakthrough what has been painted on you and for you to choose your own colors. You are really ready to enjoy a deep flowering of the you that is there. You may note certain aspects of conditioning will fit, some will absolutely not. You must decide! In this coming of you and as you live more of your own life, you will be called to make more and more refined decisions about how you live, what morals and principles you value and choose for you. Let the innocence in the depth of your heart of hearts guide you, for it is there and a part of you. You will learn to be friendly in a new way with all sorts of people that are new to your way of thinking and how you show up in the world. Again let your heart guide you. Just be yourself deeply and you will know who to be with, who to be friendly with and what to do. You will intuitively know how to handle situations that formerly used to baffle you.

Virgo - 8/23 - 9/22 The master within is your greatest support right now. He/She is there for you, guides you and supports your expression of life. Some doubt that they have a master within, be assured, it is so very true. While it can take time for the master within to be fully present, you can begin now to cultivate that awareness. It is an awesome adventure, and as you take the adventure to mean that you are loved and supported, the master will show up in your conscious awareness sooner rather than later. What keeps you back is the quiet, yet lethal, conditioning. The conditioning is well intended from family, friends, society, culture etc., yet it is the greatest hindrance to you being your own person and finding ways to proceed toward deepening your purpose in life.

26

You must turn inward as often as possible in order to gain awareness of the impact that the conditioning has had, and to eventually move beyond it. Make a commitment to yourself, get into action and go within to discover just what needs to be let go of, and what you can integrate into the life you want.

Libra - 9/23 - 10/22 Courage, courage, courage is the mantra for you right now. Notice that there is a sprouting of new growth in the most unlikely places, yet what must come forth will come forth. Your notice of what is coming forth anew automatically causes a displacement of what is old, so it would seem. Some feel isolated and alone and others let go and bask in the sunlight. Behind the isolation is a thunderbolt that will break through to a new you; one that can let go. The tendency to postpone has gotten you where you are and if you are totally happy with the life, keep it up. On the other hand in order to complete your purpose you must take action allowing the field of possibilities to descend!

September 2012 ASTROLOGY continued from page 24

1/3 col.

A new vision is right there, is tied in to the courage that you have abundance of. Your commitment to yourself will take you beyond the isolation of self through the dark night of the soul into the full and complete integration of who you are on the inside expressing on the outside. Turning in to the dark night awakens your understanding that, in that darkness is the light, and in the light is the darkness: Integration!

against those around you for fear of losing can only cause you to get way less than is due you. The weight of your resolve to keep what you have is only slowing you down and causing you to trap yourself in a mind made prison. A complete about face is required. Become the lover. Find ways to love what is and to love those around you, at home, at work, on the street, on the highway etc. The love will begin an integration of unimaginable proportions. Elements will emerge from deep inside you, from love, that will bond with all that you see producing the success that you want. You will become a natural source of sharing the love that you are. A fulfillment of all that is important and all that is in your highest good will start manifesting. Keeping what you have will begin to be understood to be the result of a “letting go� in order to get!

Care

Scorpio - 10/23 - 11/21

While you can feel pulled apart with competing thoughts and feelings, this is only part of you coming into your own. You must slow down in order to notice the elements that are at odds with each other inside. Once you do, your experience in awareness will guide you through the rapids of change and personal growth. Awareness is the key to all aspects of how you show up, why you show up the way you are, what you are drawn to and why etc. Awareness is only that, awareness of what is, and how it is what it is! Awareness alone produces an instant softening, and yet it is only part of what is required for you to find the deep peace and happiness your soul is longing for. In the depth of our souls is a longing to return home that is buried so very deep in the fabric of our existence that few really grasp that subtle yet constant drive. Begin where you are, and start noticing the elements at odds with each other. Meditate on those elements and allow the natural course of discernment to be your guide.

Sagittarius - 11/22 - 12/2 Look behind, at the sorrow that is there, and you will find an opening into the field of possibilities. Most people bury their sorrow. If you consider opening the sorrow up you will find transformational relief. Once the sorrow is integrated, a natural intensity and fervor for your life path will become so much more available to you. So far most sorrow resides in the silence within and “seems� to be ok there. However, once you look at it, or another loss occurs, it heightens more than ever. It will accumulate and become overwhelming if left alone. It is up to you to ignore sorrow or to welcome what is behind the sorrow.

#ALL+ATHY  

Keeping the sorrow quietly away requires a tremendous force on your part. The force is an energy that is akin to fighting in a suit of armor. Take off the armor, start processing the sorrow by listening to your inner voice, and more courage than you ever thought you had, will come to assist you. This will happen because as you progress on your true path there is grace and support there. The future is a walk in the park of creativity in ways that you are barely beginning to know or suspect. Deal with what is up, feel what is there, and watch it move out leaving you in a loving space in your heart of hearts.

Capricorn - 12/22 - 1/19 Trust, trust and trust some more as you let go and fly over the burdens and the valleys of pain and suffering. In the field of possibilities resides all goodness and success.

Aquarius - 1/20 - 2/18 The lotus grows in mud and is able to let go of the mud. It is time for you to take a page out of the book of the lotus. Any and all mud is the result of clinging by the mind. As successful as you are, as successful as you appear to be, as successful as others think you are, wake up and get into action at a new and more intense level. Do you really believe this is as good as it gets? I don’t think so, or maybe you do think so. If you consider what is behind your doubts and why you are settling for what you have, you will probably find a subtle guilt about whether you really deserve! Once you accept these doubts, the guilt will dissipate into a transformational trust in the deeper recesses of who you are, and what is possible. You will have your mind blown in a good way. A new vision will emerge that will lead you into the abyss, where you will find the light that will attune you into a balance and open your heart in ways that you can hardly imagine.

Pisces - 2/19 - 3/20

Intensity is your friend and companion. You have become very comfortable being intense. When you are intense, those places in your life feel good in that you are clearly justified. All the rationalizations you manufacture serve to point you to your being balanced in participating in your way. To grow beyond that calls you to shift a notch up in maturity, and choose some of the other clubs in your golf bag. The driver is good for distance while a putter is good for short distances and delicate work. Your results of your tendency to use the driver reveals that it is time for you to examine more closely if there is another tool for the job that unfolds a more delicate approach and that may create more ease and less upset. It takes a lot of courage for you to closely examine the way you act, especially when you feel you are participating justifiably. It can be a mystery, life that is! So, given that we are living in a mysterious land and that we are making it up as we go, take a look into the emptiness, into the void. Set an intention to have revealed a deeper and more loving way of doing what needs to be done, a way that is easier on you and your surroundings. WP Swaha Ron Swaha@Discerning-Wisdom.Com

CA Right to Know Unity West Engineered Food ACT Genetically

10

because knowledge is a good thing

In

by Linda Harmon

I as a Californian am not holding my breath for the FDA to act with the corporate lobbyists all over Capitol Hill. You may even ask why anyone would oppose the labeling movement, read on.

general, disclosure is a good thing for a consumer. It requires that a producer give you basic information necessary to make an informed decision. Proposition 37 on the November ballot is all about full disclosure. Think of those little stickers that say “Made in America” that tell you where a product came from. In requiring GMO labeling, producers would by law let you know “what” the product came from.

GMO products were first introduced over a decade ago by scientists, seed and herbicide companies to make large scale farming more profitable. They were engineered in the laboratory and grown out to produce seeds with bacterial genes inserted into their DNA. These manmade changes allowed the GM plants to survive otherwise deadly doses of herbicides. The GMO crops allowed farmers to spray their fields, cutting down on weeds, it also guaranteed the GMO producers continued profit and eliminated competition. These seeds were sold to farmers only after contracts were signed committing farmers to buy only the GMO producer’s brand of herbicide. Sell the seeds then sell the herbicide to spray on the seed.

If passed, a label will let you know more about that bread on the peanut butter sandwich in your child’s school lunch, that tomato in your salad on the family dinner table, or that popcorn you eat in front of a game on T.V. Is it a GMO or does it contain one? Right now we don’t know. What’s a GMO you might ask? A GMO is a genetically modified organism, sometimes referred to as a GE, for genetically engineered product. The agricultural and chemical companies who first introduced GMOs into our environment heralded their products as the easiest way to increase US profits and feed the quickly growing world population. Unfortunately, in the rush to “modernize” our food supply and the carrot of corporate profits, disclosure and the consumer’s rights to know were left in the dust. As it stands there is no regulation and the flood gates are wide open. Many consumers believe that the FDA as an independent ‘watch-dog,’ requires extensive research to determine if products in general, or GMOs in particular, are safe to consume or enter our environment. Unfortunately that is most certainly not the case for GMOs. If we look only at the example of GMO corn the ubiquitous corn syrup listed on ingredient labels as already infiltrated the processed food sector and entered the food market in a huge way.

Aquarian 37

According to the FDA Statement of Policy Foods Derived from New Plant Varieties, “It is the responsibility of the producer of a new food to evaluate the safety of the food and assure that the safety requirement of section 402(a)(1) of the act is met.” In other words the FDA is leaving the regulation up to the corporations, the same corporations that are selling the products and reaping the profits.

The first wave of GMO products sold to farmers that immediately entered the food chain included herbicide tolerant soy, corn, cotton, and canola plants. According to The Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT), a company can introduce a GM food to the market without even notifying the FDA, our federal agency that was created to ensure national food safety. The FDA does not require any safety evaluations or labeling of GMOs. Proposition 37 would allow consumers to vote with their pocket book each time they went to the market. With GMO labeling requirements, consumers will be able to make their own decision about what kind of food they put on their family table. Consumers who don’t want to take the risk can avoid purchasing GMO or products that contain them. California food activists are not alone in their concern about GMOs. In fact in March, 55 Members of Congress sent a letter to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) asking the agency to require the labeling of genetically engineered (GE) foods. Several states have already begun to consider their own bills to require GMO labeling or prohibit them entirely. In addition, nearly 50 countries including the European Union and other important United States trading partners have laws requiring GMO labels.

32

These first rounds of herbicide tolerant crops comprise about 80% of all GMO plants. They were later joined by the next generation of GMOs, GMOs that don’t need to be sprayed with herbicides because they produce their own pesticide, in every cell. (These corn and cotton varieties use a gene from a soil bacterium, called Bacillus thuringiensis or BT, which was inserted into their DNA.) These patented plants become factories producing a natural insect-killing poison called Bttoxin. .That may sound efficient but just imagine the rolling miles of farmland now sprayed with herbicides or occupied with GMOs that are deadly to insects for miles around. These insects carry on an important role in our ecosystem that is garnering new studies and incorporated into models of efficient self-sustainable farming. Should GMO producers and users hold rights that trump growers that depend on sustainable practices? Farmers who grow crops adjacent to GMO fields have been sued in federal court because their crops (through natural open pollination) infringed on the GMO held copyright of their neighbors’ fields and they refused to make payments to the GMO producers. You may wonder how such a thing could happen and the answer at least partially is the rush to


33 cooperate profits. According to IRT, Vice President Dan Quayle, chairing the 1992 trade-focused Council on Competitiveness, identified the growing GM crop industry as a way to boost US exports. Quayle announced “reforms” to speed up and simplify the process of bringing GM products to market without “being hampered by unnecessary regulation.” Three days later, the FDA policy on non-regulation was unveiled. The rush has led to what some scientific experts feel are dire consequences. The editor of the prestigious scientific journal Lancet called the FDA position and its refusal to change their stance on GMOs “astounding,” saying “Governments should never have allowed these products into the food chain without insisting on rigorous testing for effects on health.” The Royal Society of Canada has described substantial health worries linked to GM crops and “a range of collateral changes in expression of other genes, changes in the pattern of proteins produced, and/or changes in metabolic activities.” In other words they are seeing evidence that the inserted genes are having unintended consequences that are troubling and need further study. Even in 1992, FDA scientists evaluating GMOs described potential consequences. They acknowledged the possibility of unexpected, accidental changes in GM plants that may lead to higher concentrations of plant toxicants, increased naturally occurring toxins, and toxins which may produce allergens, carcinogens, or substances inhibiting assimilation of nutrients.

33

An excerpt from the 1992 FDA Statement of Policy gives a perfect example of where GMO labeling would make perfect sense illuminating possible life-threatening dangers to the public, “Examples of foods that commonly cause an allergenic response are milk, eggs, fish, crustaceans, mollusks, tree nuts, wheat, and legumes (particularly peanuts and soybeans). The sensitive population is ordinarily able to identify and avoid the offending food. However, if the allergen were moved into a variety of a plant species that never before produced that allergen, the susceptible population would not know to avoid food from that variety.” Another concern is the possibility of protein transference once the GMOs enter the environment. The proteins added in the lab may be transferred into a new species out in the field and may be processed differently. A harmless protein may be transformed into a dangerous or deadly version. Some naturally occurring proteins in potatoes are slightly toxic but may have been found to be highly poisonous when combined into a new GMO. According to IRT this has already happened in another GM food crop previously under development, GM peas, which were destroyed before being commercialized. In the confines of the lab farms this can be controlled, out in the field not so much.

FDA scientists were also quite concerned about the possibility of inserted genes transferring into the DNA of bacteria inside our digestive tract. They were particularly alarmed at the possibility of antibiotic resistant marker (ARM) genes transferring. (ARM genes are used during gene insertion to help scientists identify which cells successfully integrated the foreign gene. These ARM genes are byproducts of the process but remain in the cell and continue to be cloned into the DNA of all the GM plants produced from that cell.)

1/3 col.

In other words the FDA is leaving the regulation up to the corporations, the same corporations that are selling the products and reaping the profits.

The FDA scientists stated that ARM genes could be “a serious health hazard” transferring to gut bacteria where they could “reduce the therapeutic efficacy of the antibiotic.” Although the biotech industry asserted that gene transfer from GM foods was not possible, the only human feeding study on GM foods later proved that it does take place. (The genetic material in soybeans that make them herbicide tolerant transferred into the DNA of human gut bacteria and continued to function.) That means that long after we stop eating a GM crop, its foreign GM proteins may be produced inside our intestines presenting a breeding ground for super-bacteria immune to antibiotics. Another worry expressed by FDA scientists was that GM plants might gather “toxic substances from the environment” such as “pesticides or heavy metals,” or that toxic substances in GM animal feed might bio-accumulate into milk and meat products as they move up the food chain. No studies followed. Herbicide use and herbicide residues have increased with GMO crops. The higher residue levels have caused many countries to increase their legally allowable levels-by up to 50 times-in order to accommodate the introduction of GM crops. USDA statistics show herbicide use accelerating, up by 383 million pounds in the first 13 years after the introduction of GM crops, and along with it increasing numbers of herbicide resistant weeds. This can’t be good. Nearly 1 Million Californians Signed the petition to get this initiative, CA Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act, on the ballot. If it succeeds the required “Genetically Modified” label will be prominent on the front or side of all food packaging sold in California. (It will not be included in the nutrient label, because of a previous court challenge launched by the industry claiming the ingredient label on food packages is the purview of the federal government, not the states.)

Could Your Child’s Bedroom 1/4thesingle Be Cause of their Academic Stress

?

W

hen it’s time to think about your student getting back into the rhythm of academic study there are important Feng Shui and environmental changes you can make in their bedroom to support the returning student. These suggestions apply whether it’s a returning student, a parent learn new skills, or a college student moving into a dorm room. A good night’s sleep is the key to health and good grades. The Chinese have often said: sleep is the most important ingredient for good health, and health is wealth. The better rest we have, the more energy we can exert for mental and physical activities during our waking hours. Be sure to position the head of the bed against a solid wall. That is particularly important with bunk beds that often have open ends that are not giving the head proper support. If the head of the bunk bed cannot be turned so that the head is against a wall, then be sure to place fabric or something solid at the end behind the head to create a solid closed end to support the head during sleep. It’s best if the bed or bunk bed already has a solid headboard. For example, a young boy had problems sleeping in his bunk bed because his head was not supported by any solid part of the bed. Each end had open railings. This child would wander at night and end up sleeping in the hallway, or in his parent’s room. He was once found sleeping in the bathtub! When the mother turned the bed to have her son’s head properly supported against the wall, he was able to sleep well in his own bed. Colors in a room are very important. Be sure to avoid red, purple, burgundy, or black colors on walls and in large areas of the room such as bedspreads. These colors are too intense and may cause irritability and agitation. A study was done on prisoners who were placed in a vivid pink room. For the first 20 minutes they became calm, after that they became extremely agitated. Pastel shades are the best colors to use in bedrooms. Using the child’s favorite colors is fine as long as the color is a pastel shade. Green stimulates learning, especially when creative energy is visiting in that area. February 5, 2012 through

by: Pat Sendejas, Personality Feng Shui™ Expert

February 4, 2013, the Feng Shui “yearly visiting energy” in all buildings in the East support academic studies and creative writing. Those who have been occupying the East part of a home may have seen an increase in academics and/or creativity. This energy also increases travel. Open shelves are very distracting. The horizontal lines of the shelves create energy coming directly at anyone sleeping or studying directly across from the open shelves. It is best to have doors covering the shelves reducing the feeling of clutter and distraction. Book covers and game boxes are often so colorful they create too much energy in a room when stacked on open shelves. It is best to place books and games in drawers or behind closed doors. For your child’s easy access to books and games, purchase plastic stacking containers in solid or frosted white, or clear. If the containers are in closets, use clear plastic to help identify the contents. If the containers are on the floor or on an open shelf in the room, label the contents and use a white or frosted white container, which reduces distractions in the room. Place books and other often used items near the floor in a nightstand below the head of the bed. Avoid having a mirror at the foot of the bed; it may interfere with proper sleep. If there are mirrored closet doors at the foot of the bed, sheer panels of soft pastel fabric on a curtain rod above the closet doors can be pulled across the mirrored doors at night. Eliminating clutter is critical to a peaceful environment. An orderly room increases concentration and learning and helps to reduce stress for the occupant. Avoid placing anything behind the entry door of the room. It is important that the door open completely, allowing a wide opening into the room. When a door is blocked from opening completely, it indicates a block in the ability to receive good things coming to the room’s occupant. Allowing the door to open and close easily with no interference indicates good, honest and open communication for the occupant. When selecting a home, avoid homes built with rooms that have angles. Angles increase the potential for arguing. If you are living in a home with lots of angled walls, it can be chal-

lenging to remedy without major remodeling. If your child has a desk in their room, avoid placing the desk against the wall. If a child has his/ her back to the room’s door, it compromises the them and creates distraction, and interferes with proper study. Never use a mirror on the wall to help a person see who is coming in behind them. The mirror is also a distraction for anyone who needs to concentrate. An leader would never sit with his back to a door and rely on a mirror to see behind him. Visit my website and access the button “Free Personality Feng Shui™ Profile” to determine the best direction for the bed and the best colors to support you. Once you know the proper colors, you can select sheets that would be supportive. For example: a teenage boy or girl born in 1997 would have the wood as their best supportive element in nature. The color associated with the wood element is green, and wood is also supported by water, which is represented by the color blue. For the best sleep for a “Wood” personality feng shui type, select bed sheets in the colors blue or green.

34

Remember to keep electricity at least 3-5 feet away from the sleeper’s head. That includes computers, electric alarm clocks, and televisions. Consider an air filter for the room, one that enhances the filtered air with a flow of negative ions (ions are charged atoms or molecules). Negative ions attach to airborne particulates and remove them from the flow of air. Negativeion technology is used extensively in air filtration products in Asia, particularly in Japan where scientists have long studied the relationship between negative ions in the air and human comfort. Be sure the filter you choose removes contaminants, and does not create by-products such as ozone, a poisonous gas, adding pollutants to the air.
