Video - Psychedelic mushrooms have been ingested by humans for over nine thousand years. Today, this naturally grown fungus is commonly used as a recreational drug that causes hallucinations, while scientists are exploring the healing potential of these plants. But how exactly do psychedelic mushrooms work?
Is ‘God’ a Christian? Muslim? Roman Catholic? Buddhist? Does he or she prefer one religion over another? If a UFO landed in your backyard, would the extraterrestrial be religious? Would the ET pray to the same ‘god’? Why do all religions basically follow a similar story? Is it possible that they were all created to keep us living in subservience, control and conformity?
While a strong religious influence has entered today’s “anthroposophy”, it is good to listen to what Steiner really thought. After he began his public mission he tried to upgrade many paths, including theosophy and religion. A free spirit isn’t a religious believer, but rather the one who invents religion for the believers.

Herbal therapies are astoundingly popular and interest in them is growing as the dangers of pharmaceuticals become widely known and accepted. In 2008 statistician Patricia M. Barnes of the National Center for Health Statistics and her colleagues reported that almost 20 percent of children and adults in the U.S. had used an herbal medicine during the past year. That percentage according to some experts has doubled. A team led by physician David M. Eisenberg of Harvard Medical School determined that use of herbs for physical and mental problems including anxiety had risen 380 percent in seven years.
The use of plants as treatments dates to at least 3000 b.c. although some theories propose humans have been using plants has medicine for as long as we’ve existed. Today this practice is part of a broader movement that has been fueled by the high ineffectiveness of prescription drugs, their side effects and the fact that these drugs do not work for everyone. Natural remedies come with little to no risk and if you find the right one for your condition, you can use it for life. That being said, always consult with a Naturopathic Doctor before initiating any herbal treatments for diagnosed conditions, especially if you are already taking medication.
Cannabis has very powerful neuroprotective properties with an incredible ability to regulate emotional behavior and may be the most reliable medicinal plant available as a therapeutic target for the treatment of anxiety and depressive disorders. A study conducted with mice suggests that beta-caryophyllene may be useful in treating anxiety and depression. The findings were published online in the journal Physiology & Behavior.
Valerian root (valeriana officinalis) is derived from a plant native to Europe and Asia and has been used for thousands of years as a remedy for various ailments. It is believed that valerian root has an impact on the availability of the neurotransmitter GABA in the brain. GABA is a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system that is responsible for regulating and specifically for inhibiting the activity of the brain’s neurons. Extra GABA in your system promotes relaxation and lowers stress levels. For this reason, valerian root is known as a sedative. Valerian is very effective at relieving stress itself and insomnia caused by stress.
The nutrients in honey produce a calming effect, especially when taken in significant amounts.Honey can also be mixed with a suitable beverage for a good night’s sleep!
4. Lemon Balm
A large amount of published data has emerged on the benefits of lemon balm for alleviating anxiety and mood disorders in humans. In the past five years alone, the powerful relaxing effects of lemon balm extracts have been documented by scientists around the world. These studies confirm what herbal practitioners have long known–that lemon balm in combination with other herbal agents is effective in addressing conditions related to stress and anxiety. In one study of healthy volunteers, those who took standardized lemon balm extracts (600 mg) were more calm and alert than those who took a placebo.
Natural sedative relieves occasional anxiety and mild panic attacks. Passion Flower is a woody vine that bears small berry-like fruit calledgrandilla. The brightly colored flowers and above-ground portions of the Passion Flower vine are used to derive medicinal compounds that relax the central nervous system and promote emotional balance. In the United States, Passion Flower is classified as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) by the Food and Drug Administration. Substances that receive a GRAS classification have maintained a long, safe history of common use in foods or have been determined to be safe based on proven scientific research.
6. Winter Cherry
Relieves nervous tension, occasional anxiety and mental fatigue. Winter Cherry, or Ashwagandha Root, is among the most prominent herbal preparations used in Ayurveda, a holistic system of medicine that originated in India. The root of this small evergreen shrub is primarily recognized for its adaptogenic properties, meaning it naturally increases the body’s resistance to physical and emotional stress. Practitioners of Ayurveda traditionally prescribe Winter Cherry to promote gentle relaxation and emotional balance. Research has shown that Winter Cherry is a safe, natural sedative that produces the most noticeable benefits following daily use for two to six weeks.
Lavender is a common herb used in aromatherapy for mental health and mood. Lavender is a part of aromatherapy for headaches and depression. Lavender is a part of several scented products like perfumes soaps, shampoos and sachets. The plant is usually extracted into an oil and used in aromatherapy for mood, stress and anxiety. Lavender should be used with the recommendation of a physician, because it can interact with other medications. In one German study, a specially formulated lavender pill was shown to reduce anxiety symptoms in people with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) as effectively as lorazepam (brand name: Ativan), an anti-anxiety medication in the same class as Valium.
Ashwagandha is an Ayurvedic herb from the roots of Withania somnifera, a plant in the nightshade family. It has long been prized for hundreds of years for its ability to help the body deal with stress. It has also been used to boost the immune system, improve memory, and to promote overall wellness.
9. L-theanine (or green tea)
Research shows that L-theanine helps curb a rising heart rate and blood pressure, and human studies have found that it reduces anxiety. In onestudy, anxiety-prone subjects were calmer and more focused during a test if they took 200 milligrams of L-theanine beforehand. Astonishingly, even extremely short-term use of theanine had remarkable effects on manifestations of anxiety.
10. Rhodiola Rosea (Arctic Root)
Relieves occasional anxiety and positively supports the body during periods of stress. Arctic Root is a plant indigenous to Siberia, where it thrives in high altitudes and dry arctic climate. The primary medicinal compounds of Arctic Root are derived from the root of the plant.
In Russia, Scandinavia and much of Europe, Arctic Root has been traditionally recognized for itsadaptogenic properties. An adaptogen is a physiological agent that naturally increases the body’s resistance to physical and emotional stress. Rhodiola Rosea has been clinically shown to stimulate Serotonin, Norepinephrine and Dopamine activity, and may help to support healthy neurotransmitter balance.
11. St. Johns Wort
Natural reuptake inhibitor that supports a healthy neurotransmitter balance. St. John’s Wort is an aromatic perennial herb with an abundance of golden-yellow flowers. Tiny perforations filled with phytochemical-rich oils cover the aerial (above- ground) portions of St. John’s Wort and yield an extract that gives the plant its primary health benefits. Current usage statistics indicate that millions of Americans supplement their daily diets with St. John’s Wort to promote positive mood balance. The medicinal components of St. John’s Wort, which include Hypericin and Hyperforin, have been clinically shown to promote a healthy neurotransmitter balance, which can help to provide positive mood support following two to six weeks of continued use.
There is good evidence that chamomile possesses anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) properties and can be used to treat stress, anxiety and insomnia. In one study at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center, in Philadelphia, patients with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) who took chamomile supplements for eight weeks had a significant decrease in anxiety symptoms compared to patients taking placebo.
Skullcap is the anxiety remedy for people who experience anxiety along with restlessness, muscle tension, and jaw clenching. If you tend to toss and turn in bed, or if you feel like you can only relax when you’re out walking (but sitting still makes you want to jump out of your skin), or if you feel like “climbing the walls” when you’re stuck inside during a bout of anxiety, skullcap can help you to unwind not only your anxiety, but also the accompanying muscular tension and restlessness. Skullcap is effective in tea or tincture (a tincture is an herb extracted in alcohol) form, but if you can tolerate small amounts of alcohol I think 20-40 drops of the tincture (for a 150-pound person) is the most effective form.
14. Kava Kava
The known active ingredients in kava are phytochemicals called kavalactones. Kava Kava is best-known as a ceremonial South Pacific beverage. Six major kavalactones are used to identify the chemotype of variety as they represent greater than 90 percent of the total amount of kavalactones within the kava specimen. These kavalactones give kavaits stress fighting, muscle relaxing, anxiety reducing effects. The are also very effective for depression and sleeplessness.
15. Licorice Root
contains a natural hormone alternative to cortisone, which can help the body handle stressful situations, and can help to normalize blood sugar levels as well as your adrenal glands, providing you with the energy necessary to deal with the stressful situation at hand. Some claim licorice stimulates cranial and cerebrospinal fluid, thereby calming the mind.
Neurotransmitter Support is one of the best formulations on the market for brain energy metabolism. It is a feast for brains in need of restoration, providing the optimum combination to facilitate the transport of vital nutrients into brain cells, and assist in re-establishment of neuronal function. And it’s a healthy snack for an aging brain, as well, giving it all the essentials necessary to support our mood, memory, and cognitive abilities, which tend to slow down as the years pass by.

An avowed paganist in a time of religious strife, Hypatia was also one of the first women to study math, astronomy and philosophy
By Sarah Zielinski
One day on the streets of Alexandria, Egypt, in the year 415 or 416, a mob of Christian zealots led by Peter the Lector accosted a woman’s carriage and dragged her from it and into a church, where they stripped her and beat her to death with roofing tiles. They then tore her body apart and burned it. Who was this woman and what was her crime? Hypatia was one of the last great thinkers of ancient Alexandria and one of the first women to study and teach mathematics, astronomy and philosophy. Though she is remembered more for her violent death, her dramatic life is a fascinating lens through which we may view the plight of science in an era of religious and sectarian conflict
Founded by Alexander the Great in 331 B.C., the city of Alexandria quickly grew into a center of culture and learning for the ancient world. At its heart was the museum, a type of university, whose collection of more than a half-million scrolls was housed in the library of Alexandria.
Alexandria underwent a slow decline beginning in 48 B.C., when Julius Caesar conquered the city for Rome and accidentally burned down the library. (It was then rebuilt.) By 364, when the Roman Empire split and Alexandria became part of the eastern half, the city was beset by fighting among Christians, Jews and pagans. Further civil wars destroyed much of the library’s contents. The last remnants likely disappeared, along with the museum, in 391, when the archbishop Theophilus acted on orders from the Roman emperor to destroy all pagan temples. Theophilus tore down the temple of Serapis, which may have housed the last scrolls, and built a church on the site.
The last known member of the museum was the mathematician and astronomer Theon—Hypatia’s father.
Some of Theon’s writing has survived. His commentary (a copy of a classical work that incorporates explanatory notes) on Euclid’s Elements was the only known version of that cardinal work on geometry until the 19th century. But little is known about his and Hypatia’s family life. Even Hypatia’s date of birth is contested—scholars long held that she was born in 370 but modern historians believe 350 to be more likely. The identity of her mother is a complete mystery, and Hypatia may have had a brother, Epiphanius, though he may have been only Theon’s favorite pupil.
Theon taught mathematics and astronomy to his daughter, and she collaborated on some of his commentaries. It is thought that Book III of Theon’s version of Ptolemy’s Almagest—the treatise that established the Earth-centric model for the universe that wouldn’t be overturned until the time of Copernicus and Galileo—was actually the work of Hypatia.
She was a mathematician and astronomer in her own right, writing commentaries of her own and teaching a succession of students from her home. Letters from one of these students, Synesius, indicate that these lessons included how to design an astrolabe, a kind of portable astronomical calculator that would be used until the 19th century.
Beyond her father’s areas of expertise, Hypatia established herself as a philosopher in what is now known as the Neoplatonic school, a belief system in which everything emanates from the One. (Her student Synesius would become a bishop in the Christian church and incorporate Neoplatonic principles into the doctrine of the Trinity.) Her public lectures were popular and drew crowds. “Donning [the robe of a scholar], the lady made appearances around the center of the city, expounding in public to those willing to listen on Plato or Aristotle,” the philosopher Damascius wrote after her death.
Hypatia never married and likely led a celibate life, which possibly was in keeping with Plato’s ideas on the abolition of the family system. The Suda lexicon, a 10th-century encyclopedia of the Mediterranean world, describes her as being “exceedingly beautiful and fair of form. . . in speech articulate and logical, in her actions prudent and public-spirited, and the rest of the city gave her suitable welcome and accorded her special respect.”
Her admirers included Alexandria’s governor, Orestes. Her association with him would eventually lead to her death.
Theophilus, the archbishop who destroyed the last of Alexandria’s great Library, was succeeded in 412 by his nephew, Cyril, who continued his uncle’s tradition of hostilities toward other faiths. (One of his first actions was to close and plunder the churches belonging to the Novatian Christian sect.)
With Cyril the head of the main religious body of the city and Orestes in charge of the civil government, a fight began over who controlled Alexandria. Orestes was a Christian, but he did not want to cede power to the church. The struggle for power reached its peak following a massacre of Christians by Jewish extremists, when Cyril led a crowd that expelled all Jews from the city and looted their homes and temples. Orestes protested to the Roman government in Constantinople. When Orestes refused Cyril’s attempts at reconciliation, Cyril’s monks tried unsuccessfully to assassinate him.
Hypatia, however, was an easier target. She was a pagan who publicly spoke about a non-Christian philosophy, Neoplatonism, and she was less likely to be protected by guards than the now-prepared Orestes. A rumor spread that she was preventing Orestes and Cyril from settling their differences. From there, Peter the Lector and his mob took action and Hypatia met her tragic end.
Cyril’s role in Hypatia’s death has never been clear. “Those whose affiliations lead them to venerate his memory exonerate him; anticlericals and their ilk delight in condemning the man,” Michael Deakin wrote in his 2007 book Hypatia of Alexandria.
Meanwhile, Hypatia has become a symbol for feminists, a martyr to pagans and atheists and a character in fiction. Voltaire used her to condemn the church and religion. The English clergyman Charles Kingsley made her the subject of a mid-Victorian romance. And she is the heroine, played by Rachel Weisz, in the Spanish movie Agora, which will be released later this year in the United States. The film tells the fictional story of Hypatia as she struggles to save the library from Christian zealots.
Neither paganism nor scholarship died in Alexandria with Hypatia, but they certainly took a blow. “Almost alone, virtually the last academic, she stood for intellectual values, for rigorous mathematics, ascetic Neoplatonism, the crucial role of the mind, and the voice of temperance and moderation in civic life,” Deakin wrote. She may have been a victim of religious fanaticism, but Hypatia remains an inspiration even in modern times.
With a drug war against marijuana still raging in more countries than not, the question of how long-term marijuana use effects the human brain is a pivotal question in its legalization. Although alcohol remains legal despite heaps of evidence to the dangers of long-term use, the fight to make marijuana available both with regard to its medical properties (especially in selectively killing cancer cells) and non-medical uses has frequently hinged on the various claims made about marijuana’s effects on the recreational user.
Luckily, the debate can finally move out from the realm of opinion into scientific evidence as researchers from the University of Texas just published their research into the long-term effects of marijuana use on the brain in PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences).
The researcher helped dispel the dying myth that marijuana use lowers IQ, and actually provides more evidence to marijuana’s potential role in fighting Alzheimer’s. The research revealed that earlier onset of regular marijuana use leads to greater structural and functional connectivity in the brain. The most significant increases in connectivity appear as an individual begins using marijuana, with results showing that the severity of use is directly correlated to greater connectivity.
Although these results will need to be confirmed with a larger sample (this was based on roughly 100 participants), the preliminary results seemed promising. More research needed to be done in order to see if these differences are caused by, or simply associated with, long term marijuana use. The UT study also found reduced gray matter in the OFC (orbitofrontalcortex) in long-term users (which is a brain region associated with addiction). It was unclear whether this region is simply smaller in regular users (explaining their regular use) or if the use actually contributed to structural brain changes.
A more recent follow-up study (yes, we edit articles with new information) published in the Journal of Neuroscience, also with 100 people (50 adolescents and 50 adults) found no significant differences in brain structure relating to daily or non-daily cannabis consumption. Which pokes holes in the interpretation that cannabis consumption was the driver in the gray matter differences seen in University of Texas study.
These results will also need to be viewed in light of other researcher showing that cannabinoids actually promote brain cell growth/regrowth (neurogenesis) even in adults. Why this could possibly remain illegal anywhere, is an important question, and hopefully people will continue to inform themselves and others on the topic.
‘If this does not get the skeptics going wild on the moon debate, we don’t know what will.
In the video presentation above, NASA engineer Kelly Smith explains about many of the risks and pitfalls surrounding the new Orion Deep Space Mission to the planet Mars.
Surprisingly, chief among Kelly’s concerns is whether or not his spacecraft can successfully pass through the perilous Van Allen Radiation Belts. Such is the prospective danger in fact, that NASA will have to send a dumbie craft first in order to ‘test out’ what the potential radiation effects will be on future human crews, as well as on the ship’s delicate sensors and equipment.’

Nearly a decade ago, a dear friend and colleague of mine named Don Harkins authored a wonderfully thought-provoking piece entitled “Slavery and the Eight Veils”. Prior to Harkins’ untimely death, we discussed this “Eight-veils theory” for literally hours together – and in the end, Don asked me to write a piece about this for his newspaper, “The Idaho Observer.” He did this, because I had shared much of my research with Don, and we together came to the conclusion that in reality, there were actually NINE veils placed on the human soul (i.e. intelligence), and that spiritual progression and thus a full knowledge of TRUTH would require the piercing of these Nine Veils.
I joked with Don that this topic would take an entire edition of The Idaho Observer, and then it would only scratch the surface. That was one of Don’s editorial talents – taking a complex story and compressing it to a more readable format. In memory of Don Harkins, here is the writing we discussed, in as compressed a format as possible.
WHY NINE VEILS INSTEAD OF EIGHT
Any dedicated seeker of truth eventually stumbles upon the incredible symmetry and structure of mathematics, which is especially true in fractal geometry involving the integers 1-9. For a most basic example, just take a look at these nine equations:
(1 x 8) + 1= 9
(12 x 8) + 2 = 98
(123 x 8) + 3 = 987
(1234 x 8) + 4 = 9876
(12345 x 8) + 5 = 98765
(123456 x 8) + 6 = 987654
(1234567 x 8) + 7 = 9876543
(12345678 x 8) + 8 = 98765432
(123456789 x 8) + 9 = 987654321
Amazing, isn’t it? I find it very interesting, furthermore, that all of the great philosophers in history such as Archimedes, Copernicus, Socrates, and DaVinci all were mathematicians first and foremost. I submit that everything from biblical prophecy to DNA strands are built and based on quite simple mathematical formulas and patterns – but I am getting ahead of the story, for understanding the role of mathematics is in itself one of the nine hidden veils.
Consider also the so-called “mystery schools” of antiquity. In shadowy temples in Sumer and Babylon – the Kabbalah showed the way to the ultimate “Holy of Holies” – the re-veil-a-tions (revelation, i.e. the parting of the veils) of life, the creation, of God and when embraced in honor and truth, the very Origins of Man. This involved systematically piercing and embracing 9 levels of understanding or “Truth Plateaus” before finally entering “Nirvana” (or the ultimate unity with God) as depicted in modern “tracing boards”.
Like a giant Sudoku Puzzle board, the human experience we call life truly revolves around the numbers 1 – 9 in so many remarkable ways. Everything has a place in the system, and everything fits neatly and precisely in the eternal grid of time and space. This then, is but one definition of Truth – hidden, arcane knowledge that fits completely in the mathematical grid called logic. Yeshua (aka Jesus of Nazareth) declared this to His disciples: “Ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall set you free.”
WHY CAN’T PEOPLE SEE THE TRUTH?
This question is best answered by Don Harkins’ wise words written in 2001:
“Over the last several years I have evolved and discarded several theories in an attempt to explain why it is that most people cannot see truth — even when it smacks them in the face. Those of us who can see “the conspiracy” have participated in countless conversations amongst ourselves that address the frustration of most peoples´ inability to comprehend the extremely well-documented arguments which we use to describe the process of our collective enslavement and exploitation. The most common explanation to be arrived at is that most people just “don´t want to see” what is really going on.
Extremely evil men and women who make up the world´s power-elite have cleverly cultivated a virtual pasture so grass green that few people seldom, if ever, bother to look up from where they are grazing long enough to notice the brightly colored tags stapled to their ears.
The same people who cannot see their enslavement for the pasture grass have a tendency to view as insane “conspiracy theorists” those of us who can see the past the farm and into the parlor of his feudal lordship´s castle.
Finally, I understand why.
It´s not that those who don´t see that their freedom is vanishing under the leadership of the power-elite “don´t want to see it” — they simply can´t see what is happening to them because of the unpierced veils that block their view.
All human endeavors are a filtration process. Sports are one of the best examples. We play specific sports until we get kicked off the playground. The pro athletes we pay big bucks to watch just never got kicked off the playground. Where millions of kids play little league each spring, they are filtered out until there are about 50 guys who go to the World Series in October.
Behind the first veil: There are over 7 billion people on the planet. Most of them live and die without having seriously contemplated anything other than what it takes to keep their lives together. Ninety percent of all humanity will live and die without having pierced the first veil.”
Indeed it can be said that less than 1% of the world’s 7 billion humans ever pierce all nine veils, and it would appear that even this small minority is ever-shrinking. In order to keep the “virtual pasture” green, the global elite also successfully bribe many who have pierced multiple veils, in order to misdirect others who may be approaching truth in many areas. I call this simply intellectual prostitution – selling the birthright of Universal Truth for a worthless mess of pottage. The gilded glitz of wealth, fame and social elevation have seduced many a gifted intellectual.
With full credit given to Don Harkins, here now are the newly updated “Nine Veils”
The first veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the first veil and find the world of politics. We will vote, become active and develop an opinion. Our opinions will be shaped by the physical world around us; we will have been “conditioned” from our days in public education to accept that government officials, network media personalities and other “experts” are the primary voices of authority. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the third veil.
The second veil: Ten percent of us will also pierce the second veil to explore the world of history, the relationship between man and government and the meaning of self-government through constitutional and common law. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the third veil.
The third veil: Ten percent of those who pierce the second veil, will eventually pierce the third veil to conclusively find that the resources of the world, including people, are controlled by extremely wealthy and powerful families whose incorporated old world assets have, with modern extortion strategies, become the foundation upon which the entire world´s economy is currently indebted. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the fourth veil.
The fourth veil: Ten percent will then pierce the fourth veil to discover the Illuminati,Freemasonry, and the other secret societies. These societies use symbols and perform ceremonies that perpetuate the generational transfers of arcane knowledge that is used to keep the ordinary people in political, economic and spiritual bondage to the oldest bloodlines on earth. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the fifth veil.
The fifth veil: Ten percent will progress to pierce the fifth veil to learn that the secret societies are so far advanced technologically that time travel and interstellar communications have no boundaries and controlling the very thoughts and even the very actions of people is what their members do as offhandedly as we tell our children when they must go to bed. As in the days of Noah, this technology is even creating synthetic life forms, as man seeks to displace God. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the sixth veil.
The sixth veil: Ten percent will progress to pierce the sixth veil where we learn the dragons and lizards and aliens we thought were the fictional monsters of childhood literature are real indeed and are in reality the actual controlling forces behind the secret societies uncovered in the fourth veil. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without piercing the seventh veil.
The seventh veil: Ten Percent will progress to pierce the 7th veil where the incredible world of fractal geometry and the universal law of numbers will be fully understood and embraced. The creative force of the entire universe will be shown to be linked to numerical code formulas and sequences, and all “mysteries” including the very fabric of time, space, parallel universes, and access therein is unlocked. Those whose intellects allow them to pierce the seventh veil often succumb to the lure and promise of massive wealth offered by the ruling elite, and thus over ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without piercing the eighth veil.
The eighth veil: Piercing the eighth veil reveals God and the pure energy known as LOVE that is the pure life force in all living things – which are one and the same. Deep-seated Humility is needed in order to ever pierce this veil.
The ninth veil: Piercing the ninth veil means perfecting the pure energy known as love and thereby becoming truly one with God and His/Her formulations. By perfecting this pure energy, one then fully embraces charity and therein gains full understanding of the universal plan of sacrifice, death, and redemption; life itself then becomes complete and one truly comes full circle and looks at the world through the eyes of an innocent child, yet with the deepest wisdom born of pure LOVE from the eighth veil.
Consider this: If this theory is correct, there are only about 60,000 people on the planet who have successfully pierced the sixth veil. The irony here is too incredible: Those who are stuck behind veils one through five have little choice but to view the people who have pierced the veils beyond them as dangerously insane. With each veil pierced, exponentially shrinking numbers of increasingly enlightened people are deemed insane by exponentially increasing masses of decreasingly enlightened people.
Adding to the irony, the harder a “sixth or better veiler” tries to explain what he is able to see to those who can’t, the more insane he appears to them. This truth is self-evident. Moreover, institutions such as the venerable “Southern Poverty Law Center” are formed and financed by the ruling elite to effectively label many such awakened individuals “hate-mongers” and “terrorists”.
OUR ENEMY, THE STATE
Behind the first two veils we find the great majority of people on the planet. They are tools of the state: Second veilers are the gullible voters whose ignorance justify the actions of politicians who send untold millions of first veilers off to die in foreign lands as cannon fodder — their combined stations in life are simply to believe that the self-serving machinations of the power-elite are matters of national security and are worth dying for.
Third, fourth, fifth and sixth veilers are of increasing liability to the state because of their decreasing ability to be used as tools to consolidate power and wealth of the many into the hands of the power-elite few. It is common also, for these people to sacrifice more of their relationships with friends and family, their professional careers and personal freedom with each veil they pierce.
Albert Jay Nock (1870-1945), author of “Our Enemy, The State” (1935), explained what happens to those who find and embrace the final two veils: “What was the best that the state could find to do with an actual Socrates and an actual Jesus when it had them? Merely to poison one and crucify the other, for no reason but that they were too intolerably embarrassing to be allowed to live any longer.”
As Don Harkins has written: “And so now we know that it´s not that our countrymen are so committed to their lives that, “they don´t want to see” the mechanisms of their enslavement and exploitation. They simply “can´t see” it as surely as I cannot see what´s on the other side of a closed curtain.”
The purpose of this essay is threefold:
1. To help the handful of people in the latter veils to understand why the masses have little choice but to interpret their clarity as insanity;
2. To help people behind the first two veils understand that living, breathing and thinking are just the beginning and;
3. Show people that the greatest adventure of our life is behind the next veil because that is just one less veil between ourselves and God A.K.A. ‘The Highest Vibration”

‘A San Francisco Catholic church has reportedly installed a “watering system” that discourages homeless people by drenching them as they sleep.
KCBS reported that the “no trespassing” signs outside the primary church for Archdiocese of San Francisco, Saint Mary’s Cathedral, did not mention what would happen to the homeless who tried to sleep under the cover of the building’s doorway.
At random times throughout the night, “[w]ater pours from a hole in the ceiling, about 30 feet above, drenching the alcove and anyone in it,” the station noted. “The shower ran for about 75 seconds, every 30 to 60 minutes while we were there, starting before sunset, simultaneously in all four doorways. KCBS witnessed it soak homeless people, and their belongings.”’
‘“The Zionist paradigm is founded on the distorted story of the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt and their persecution by the Assyrians and Captivity by Babylonians. But the truth is that the Israelites never set foot in Egypt or Palestine. Actually they never left Ancient Arabia and North Yemen, their origin land, before the Babylonian Captivity”’

Have you been feeling extremely lonely and empty to the core lately…..to the brink of tears or apathy? Have you had old fears you thought were dead and buried come back to haunt you and run-a-muck to the point of obsession? Have you had bad dreams that tie you to “old romances or relationships” and “stuff” that you thought had been previously handled? Do you feel that if you don’t have a “quality relationship” in your life, you might as well be dead because that emptiness makes you feel dead inside already? Do you find yourself standing in front of the open refrigerator looking for something that “Looks Good” but nothing seems to “hit the spot” when you eat it?
These are symptoms that many, many First Wave Indigos (FW) are having and it seems to have been amped up lately. This feeling of sadness and desperation to find a “Soul Mate” is almost getting out of control and you need to know that others are feeling it too…..it is NOT just YOU!
Statistically, the majority of First Wave Indigos are currently ‘single.’ Out of the ones that are married or in a relationship, only about 6% are in happy, stable, and supportive partnerships. The others are in hideous relationships with spider/snake/cat ladies or male tyrants that are making their life a living Hell and they wish they were single and free! This is NOT the way it should be and …..if we have anything to do about it…..it is not the way it WILL BE in the near future.
Since UV-Realm Indigos are “wired differently” …it is very important for you to understand that intimate relationships can only be truly fulfilling if you are with another Indigo, and also one that that is on the same “wavelength” that you are. If you aren’t, and if you “sell out” and get together intimately with an “Earth Person” or someone who is convenient just to stop the loneliness…..this can be very destructive to both parties.
First of all you will NOT get what you need out of the interaction and chances are you will be the unlucky recipient of some kind of Kundalini dumping…..a process that happens when someone knowingly or unintentionally, dumps their psychic debris/poisons/fears and stresses on their partner during intimacy. This can take hours, days, weeks or even months & years to clear, especially if you don’t have a clue what happened and how to fix it.
What Indigos are REALLY looking for is mutual respect/honor and energetic exchange that comes through high level Tantra, the art of conscious loving. Through Tantra you and your partner can move to elevated states of awareness/consciousness and truly “know thyself” in ways that nothing else can touch. It is one of the hidden keys in my book “Kryahgenetics: The Simple Secrets of Human Alchemy. ” Tantra is truly the bridge to higher consciousness, and that is precisely why organized religion has tried to make all sorts of rules and taboos to regulate it. They have deliberately created so much guilt and lies about sexuality to guarantee that you will not be free to explore and express your True Nature, the authentic God or Goddess within!
If you never know the God/Goddess with in, you will always be looking on the outside of yourself to find “God.” This way, “they” have control because you believe they have the roadmap and an “In” with God. They set themselves up as a mediator to Source…and you would NEVER want to cut off your link to “Source” …..Therefore, they “OWN YOU!”
First Wave Indigos, in their heart of hearts, know this to be true, and long for a “soul mate” …one they love and trust to explore “the God/Goddess within” and become “one” with their partner. Magick happens when two people become one …..one heart….one soul…and if you know how to command and conduct orgone energy, (the power of the Orgasm…..the power of life itself) you can change your reality and the matrix of the entire hologram! Orgone energy laced with Divine Love is THE MOST POWERFUL ENERGY/FORCE IN THE UNIVERSE! It is the power to create ANYTHING and also can be used for destruction!
The Powers That Be know this, and THAT is one of the main reasons you have been kept so isolated and so disconnected from those from the Realm that you love. If your “soul mates” from the Realm came into your life, and you started practicing Creation and Re-Creation through Tantra…..this world would be a different movie! We would change the social structure, extinguish the tyrants, and bring balance, peace and life force back to the earth and let Justice and Karma reign once more. Then we would head off to the cosmic Bahamas for some R&R before going back to the Realm for our next assignment.
(If all this Tantra stuff is foreign to you, I would suggest picking up the book “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Tantric Sex” by Dr. Judy Kuriansky, which is on the required reading list for “The Knights of Mistyc House” training.)
So, my suggestion is to hang in there, see this problem for what it REALLY is, do some of your own meditation and research, connect with other FW-Indigos, and don’t let the energies consume you…no matter who, what or where they are coming from! I have found for me that connecting to my spirit guides and guardians from the Realm has been extremely beneficial and many times I have even felt their arms around me…just holding me…..and sometimes I cry. This has been a very profound experience indeed, and it has helped me through some of these tremendously lonely times.
Also, (and this is extremely important)…use this “solitude time” to get “cleaned-up and cleared-up” as much as you can if you have been “messed-up”…(hahahaha and what FW-Indigo hasn’t?!) You want to be at your best physically, emotionally, spiritually and psychically for when one of your “beloveds” comes into your life. Get as many of your implants cleared out as you can and make sure that you are not going to be a “donor” of Kundalini Dumping! (Not a good way to start a companionship/partnership!)
Understand that we are also very much aware of the different agendas that are in motion on a cosmic scale right now and why FW-Indigos are so intertwined in it all. We are also aware of why the energies are intensifying and why Indigos are being targeted….. and are working 24-7 to find all the sources and get it handled. If any of you have some psychic hits on things that we might need to look at …..we are always welcoming your input. We also welcome any assistance you can render.
May we all find the Love and Cosmic Romantic Relationships we so richly deserve, and may we shake the cosmos with passionate orgone energy that will permanently change this reality, and bring Honor, Truth, Love, Passion, and Prosperity to us all.
Did you know that people who meditate for a short time each day are much happier than people who don’t?
Meditators are much healthier with greatly extended life spans, too. As a matter of fact, their health is so much better that a number of insurance companies have reduced premiums for people who meditate.
Did you know that experienced meditators have developed many latent abilities that they never knew they had, abilities that exist within every person? And they have gotten much closer to answering life’s mysterious questions?
They are much smarter, too. In fact, meditators brains have been proven to function at a superior level on every single test, measurement, and assessment that the scientific community has generated. That is one reason why top level executives and CEOs meditate.
Were you aware that meditators produce immensely more pleasurable brain chemicals, the same chemicals that flow through your system on the days when you feel very good, and these pleasurable brain chemicals are produced constantly?
Did you know that they also sleep much better? As a matter of fact, they need fewer hours of sleep every night because their mind and bodies are completely refreshed and rejuvenated during their highly pleasurable meditation sessions. Meditation is many times more powerful than sleep.
Also, meditators have far superior mental and emotional health. They have less anxiety, depression, anger, sadness, fear, and they have more friends, healthier relationships, and feel a great deal more satisfied and content with their lives.

Traditional educational systems basically teach us that the history of man only dates back to about 8,000 years ago while religious texts date mankind to approximately 6,000 years ago. It is more than obvious that there a massive push to occlude our true history and origins.
While you may not agree with some of the questions, please try to view them with an open mind. As you’ll see, the history we have been taught has been manipulated and obscured from us.
Ask yourself (or others) the following questions and feel free to comment at the end of the article!
A map drawn on a gazelle skin of an unfrozen Antarctica was found in 1929. The map was drawn in 1513 by Piri Reis, who had privileged access to the Imperial Library of Constantinople. Contained within the notes found on the map, Reis stated that he compiled and copied the data from a large number of source maps, some of which dated back to the 4 BC or earlier. Our history books tell us that Antarctica was discovered by Captain James Cook while crossing the Antarctic Circle on January 17, 1773 with the ships HMS Resolution and Adventure.
1. How did Reis know of Antarctica several hundred years before Captain James Cook ‘discovered’ it?
The last time Antarctica was not frozen was at least 4,000 BC, so…
2. Where did the Imperial Library of Constantinople get THEIR information and who is responsible for the initial drawing of that map?
A tiny figurine made of baked-clay (right) was brought up in amongst the debris churned out by a huge drill bit during the drilling of a well in Nampa Idaho in 1889. The object is a one inch long figure with one leg broken off at the knee.
3. Is it possible that mankind has been here many times LONG BEFORE our recorded past?
4. How many millennia would it take for an object like this to be buried 300 feet into the ground?
According to Darwinism, man evolved from ape.
5. If man evolved from ape, then why are there still apes?
6. There are pyramids on every continent of the world. Who built them and why were they built?
In Ecuador, one large Jade cup and 12 smaller Jade cups were found. Each of the smaller cups are a little bit different in size, but if you were to fill each one and pour them into the larger one, the contents would exactly fill the larger cup. The large cup has a perfect inlaid star constellation, showing Orion and other stars.
Klaus Dona stated, “inside the big cup it is very, very magnetic and outside the cup nearly nothing. Professional geologists are saying this is impossible because if a stone has metal particles inside the stone, it must be same magnetic from both sides.”
7. If scientists say that it is impossible to have a very magnetic inside of a jade cup with a non-magnetic outside of the same cup, then who created these vessels and where are they from?
In Illoinois a well bit brought up a 200,000 year old bronze coin from a depth of 114 feet just outside Chillicothe, Illinois. According to the Illinois State Geological Survey, the deposits containing the coin are between 200,000 and 400,000 years old.
8. Long before our state-sponsored recorded history will admit that civilized man was on Earth, what culture made this coin?
More than 350 artifacts were found in Ecuador in an old tunnel system. One artifact in particular shows the same pyramid with an all-seeing eye at the top of it (below). Under a black light, the eye takes on an interesting hue while on the bottom of this artifact, you can see a star map of Orion’s Belt along with writing that is older than any known writing on this planet. According to the research of Klaus Dona, the same writing has been found all over the world, proving that there was a pre-existing GLOBAL civilization that is much older than any Sanskrit writings.
9. Why do all history classes exclude this information?
We are seeing a continuing theme involving Orion’s Belt. The pyramids on the Giza Plateau also reflect the exact same alignment as the “3 Kings” of Orion’s Belt.
10. What visitors came to this planet from Orion’s Belt?
It’s obvious that Orion’s Belt plays a large significance in the origins of mankind. Who are these visitors from Orion’s Belt and what is their agenda?
11. What is the significance of the Orion’s Belt constellation?
Professor Kurt Schildmann, former President of the German Linguistic Association, called this writing “pre-Sanskit” (older than 6,000 years old) and was able to translate the writing as follows:
“The son of the creator comes.”
12. What is the true meaning of this pyramid and why is this symbol still being used?
In the pre-religious Anunnaki creation myth, Anu had 2 sons, Enki and Enlil. Enki, also known as Ea (as in EArth) in Sumerian texts, was loving and kind to the genetically modified humans who mined gold for the Anunnaki.
13. Does “The son of the creator comes” refer to Enki?
The Old and New Testament of the Christian bible clearly shows one vengeful god who kills millions of people while an apparently different god who is all loving.
14. Does the bible reflect the story of Enlil (Old Testament, malevolent towards humans) and Enki (New Testament, all-loving toward humans)?
In the Old Testament, Genesis 1:26-28, it states, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” It goes on to say, “Be fruitful, multiply, and replenish the Earth.”
15. Who is “us” and “our”? Why “replenish”? To replenish suggests to “do it again”.
In 1851 in Dorchester, Massachusetts, a 4-1/2 inch high zinc and silver alloy vase was dynamited out of solid rock 15 feet below the surface. On the sides were figures of flowers in bouquet arrangements, inlaid with pure silver. The rock out of which it came is estimated to be 100,000 years old.
16. According to academia, what civilization was capable of this type of art 100,000 years ago?
Over 200 metallic spheres have been found in South Africa and are estimated to be 4,500 million years old. There are two types of spheres: “one of solid bluish metal with white flecks, and another which is a hollow ball filled with a white spongy center” (Jimison, 1982).
17. Our recorded history tells us that civilized man has only been here anywhere between 6-8,000 years, so who made these spheres millions of years beforehand?
With the exception of stone and precious metals, virtually everything we own right now would eventually turn to dirt throughout the millennia, including all of our TV’s, cellphones, cars, planes and everything made of plastic. If by chance, some major catastrophe were to hit our planet, within 100,000 years, just about every hint of civilization would be buried under years of decay.
18. Is it possible that there are malevolent rulers who have kept us in economic subservience for literally hundreds of thousands of years, if not millions of years?
All religions seem to share similar stories.
19. Is it possible that this template has been used since the earliest incarnations came to this planet, perhaps billions of years ago?
20. When will we finally learn to live without being economic slaves to the same system of domination and control?
3 bonus questions for YOU to answer:
Why has our true history been hidden from us? What is the purpose of suppressing such information? How many times have civilizations come and gone from this planet?

Is there an invisible “Energy Grid” surrounding the planet? A grid which may hold the secret to obtaining power that can be used for good … or evil?
Nikola Tesla once said: “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
Today we know that Tesla was right. Quantum physics has demonstrated that all matter, at its sub-atomic core, is actually energy. This includes both sentient life, inanimate objects and the particles of space. Matter is, in fact, more energy than it is “stuff”.
In its (seemingly) solid form, matter also emits energy, as countless studies have shown. And when it comes to matter which emits energy, none may be more important for us to understand than that of an energetic grid. A grid, many argue, which surrounds the Earth.
Why is this important? Because if the Earth emits energy along specific lines and cross-point which can be harnessed by humans, those aware of this power are at a distinct advantage over those who remain ignorant.
More than Meets the Eye
As with many “unsolved mysteries”, the notion of a grid which surrounds the Earth has polarized theorists and experts into two distinct camps: Proponents and Dismissers. While proponents argue that ample evidence exists to prove an energetic grid’s existence, dismissers categorize the theory as another fringe element popular with Conspiracy Theorists.
But even if mainstream thinkers dismiss the very existence of a grid, a closer examination indicates there could be much more here than meets the eye.
“Ley” Lines and Pre-Historic Power Centers
The lines which comprise this grid (in theory or in fact) are often referred to as “Ley Lines,” and when we study them closely, we see that humans throughout recorded history appear to have been well aware of their existence, thanks to the many ancient sites found along them.
The term “Ley” itself comes from the Anglo-Saxon, meaning ‘cleared strips of ground’ or ‘meadows’. But these lines we are referring to are primarily energetic, and exist whether the land is stripped of its ground cover or not.
All Ley Lines meet at intersecting points, forming a matrix or grid across the body of the planet. These grid points, according to proponents, are the strongest “power spots” on Earth. Apparently many of our ancestors thought so too, since sacred sites such as henges, mounds, megaliths, pyramids, famous energy vortexes, and even cathedrals are frequently located directly atop these cross-hair power spots.
In fact, mapping the grid shows us that many of the world’s most renowned sites sit atop Ley Line meeting points. Machu Picchu, the Pyramids of Giza, Easter Island, Puma Punku, Lhasa Tibet, the ancient ruins of Mohenjo Daro, Findhorn in Scotland, the Bermuda Triangle, the Arizona vortices, Angkor Wat, the Nazca Lines, numerous obelisks, and sacred domed structures around the globe all attest to the very real possibility that something beyond the visible world is involved here.
Exactly how our ancestors knew about these lines may forever remain a mystery, but what we can deduce today from our own knowledge, reveals information that can powerfully aid the planet – or deeply harm it – during these all too critical times.
Pseudoscience or Solid Platonic Fact?
According to mainstream thinking, the study of a planetary grid is considered a “pseudoscience.” However, when we look to the precise mathematics connected with this grid, then refer to the patterns and themes reflected in Sacred Geometry, a meaning beyond materialist scientific thought begins to emerge.
Plato acknowledged grids and formulated a theory of the Earth which states that the base structure of the planet evolved geometrically: from the most simple shapes to increasingly complex ones.
It’s no surprise that these shapes are today known as the “Platonic Solids” and include the following: the cube, the tetrahedron, the octahedron, the dodecahedron, and the icosahedron.
According to Plato’s theory, these energy grids around the Earth evolved through each of the shapes over time, with the more complex superimposed over its predecessor. The result is an all encompassing field which forms the energetic basis of Earth. An energy, according to Plato, which literally holds the Earth together.
Early Ley Line Identification
In 1921, Alfred Watkins, an English pioneer of photography had something he called a “Flood of Ancestral Memory” while looking at a map of the Herefordshire countryside.
Watkins noticed that numerous prehistoric places, such as standing stones, earthen burial mounds, prehistoric earthen hills, and other features fell into straight lines which stretched for miles across the country. Watkins spent many years studying these alignments, both on the ground and on maps.
He took photographs, wrote books and gave lectures. In response to his work, especially to his most important book, The Old Straight Track (1925), a group of people from across Britain formed what they called the “Straight Track Club”. This group conducted field research throughout Britain, looking for alignments of sites, and remnants of old straight tracks lying along them.
It wasn’t until the 1960s that Alfred’s research was furthered and modified by others. One of these was Tony Wedd, a former Royal Air Force Pilot. Wedd believed the Lines served an entirely different function. Namely: the “cross-hairs” of line intersections were used as UFO landing sites. Wedd’s hypothesis inspired other investigations, throughout the 1960s and on a global scale, examining the energy output along Ley Lines.
“Bucky Balls” and Vile Vortices
As it turns out, there are several different Ley Line grid maps. The variety can be attributed to different researchers throughout the 20th century. All of them, however, draw their conclusions from the fundamental geometries of the Platonic solids.
Bill Becker and Bethe Hagens, for example, have conducted extensive research on Ley Lines. Their review of the code of the Platonic Solids’ Earthly positions was based on the work of Ivan P. Sanderson. Sanderson was the first to argue that the icosahedron form was evident and at work across the planet.
Sanderson identified what he called “Vile Vortices” distributed geometrically at 12 key locations across the globe. All of these sites shared similar, mostly negative, qualities. Most famous among them are the Bermuda Triangle and the Devil’s Sea.
Becker and Hagens supported, for the most part, the planetary grid map as initially outlined by the Russian team Goncharov, Morozov and Makarov. The Team organized the grid differently than Sanderson, basing it instead on the relationship between the Great Pyramid at Giza, and the north and south axial poles.
However, Becker and Hagens believed the Russian version was incomplete. This led them to theorize and map out a new, more complex variation of an Earth grid, based on R. Buckminster Fuller’s icosahedral-based, spherical polyhedron.
Official Dismissal of Ley Lines
Even though experts like Dan Shaw, Nassim Haramein, Becker and Hagens, Sanderson and the Russians have all conducted research on Ley Lines, mainstream science does not formally acknowledge their existence or influence.
Could this be due to a more hidden agenda? One seeking to keep such knowledge from the public?
Since research into such arenas is unsupported by mainstream funding, it will be difficult to determine the full potential of Ley Lines. If indeed there are subtle energies along the Earth’s Ley Line grid, what possible ways might a conscious humanity harness this power for the greater good? Until support and research funding become available, we may never know.

Ultimately those who awaken invariably come up against a very big question; why would the so-called “elite” self-appointed rulers of this planet bring the house down around their own ears? Don’t they get irradiated, chemtrailed and ultimately modified like the rest of us? Aren’t their children in peril just like ours?
Underground bunkers or not, the rapid deterioration of our environment is leading toward a dead planet if their machinations aren’t halted some time very soon.
What these manipulators are up to is not life giving, it is death dealing. For humanity and all of nature. Why would anyone/anything do such a thing? To answer that, people first need to realize that that’s what they’re doing.
Deliberately trashing our planet.
The Utter Insanity
It’s beyond our fully grasping how these entities think and operate because of the difference in vibrational understanding. They’re insane psychopaths in our minds, we’re dumb sheep in theirs. Someone said the reptilians told them to trash the environment but don’t worry, their greys will restore everything. Neat little package but it always makes me wonder since they’re doing exactly that, wantonly trashing the place.
The oceans are being deliberately killed off. The Macondo oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico never ended. It’s still gushing oil and other toxic elements which work their way around the gulf and then take the Atlantic current up the US coast and over to Europe, screwing that whole system up. What did they expect would happen when you drill miles down into a known volcanic undersea region? And oil leaks and spills continue worldwide with hardly a mention anymore.
To then spray the banned dispersant Corexit over the area so it wouldn’t look so bad, further killing off sea life and dangerously toxifying the entire region is even further insanity.
Sewage and waste, much of which won’t decompose for centuries, is flooded into the seas and tributaries in gargantuan amounts. On top of that the US Navy is “experimenting” with huge algae blooms that starve sea life of oxygen and disturb the natural life-cycles of the sea, while they’re also playing with sonic warfare equipment that also results in mass fish and other sea life die-offs.
Add chemtrails to the mix now, and weather manipulation and earthquake induction. How about genetic modification of just about anything that’s alive. The current assault on the northeast US with these manipulated arctic cold incursions extend right out over that same Gulf stream that drives not only drives the weather system but could bring on a massive killing off of the Atlantic much like is happening to the Pacific ocean via radiation.
The irradiation of our planet is massive–all from decades of hundreds of atom bomb tests, reactor meltdowns, the use of depleted uranium in weaponry and even medical and so-called security usage. Remember, Fukushima, like the Macondo well, is still spewing, and our atmosphere and oceans are getting massive amounts of radiation with cataclysmic animal and plant die offs being recorded. With hundreds of reactors reaching deterioration point and a mad world on the verge of a nuclear holocaust, the outlook is, what you my might say, a little tenuous.
That’s the state of our home. The planet on which we live.
Feeding Off Accelerated Entropy
At the very least these manipulative forces imposing their paradigm upon the earth and her inhabitants is a purely anti-creative force, a form of relative darkness that feeds off of the entropic breakdown they engineer and exacerbate. Instead of the magnificent creative growing complex force of life, entropy is the breakdown of organized structures into lower, simpler forms which in turn releases energy.
In nature this happens as living forms decay, giving off heat and and water vapor and replenishing the soil with nutrients for the next cycle of growth of living, wonderfully complex organisms. All natural.
Engineering entropy is another thing. While harnessing a river’s energy via electric generators may seem innocent enough, the by-product of man’s actions are cumulative. Damming up the world’s rivers has changed the natural flow and distribution of water. Drilling for oil to burn and mining massive amounts of other natural resources is changing the make up of the earth’s interior and the balance of nature as well. Asphalting and paving the surface of the earth is literally turning the world inside out. That cannot bode well.
This entropic reduction for power can be dramatically seen in an atomic explosion, which only results in death, destruction and the lingering of deadly radiation for many hundreds of years. Other forms of massive energy releases such as the vast array of weapons of war are using entropy for power and control. Fluoridating our water, chemtrailing our skies and altering our food are other forms of this. Besides organic and even inorganic structures breaking down unnaturally, these and other toxins and drugs are making humanity stupid and dazed – chemically lobotomized and unable to function properly.
In addition, our geoengineered skies are also precipitating increased methane releases and other entropic breakdowns that seriously threaten our planet’s very existence. EMFs from cell masts, Wifi, smart meters and appliances, GWEN towers and other new technologies, and massive antenna arrays such as HAARP further break down the natural magnetic resonance of the planet, ourselves and everything on it.
The entire biodiversity of the planet is shrinking drastically as plant and animal species are disappearing at an exponential rate. All of this is a designed breakdown to harvest energy and bring the planet to a lower vibrational state while also lessening the sustainable size of the human population, a documented program long in the works.
This is where it becomes apparent who is engineering all of this. Whatever you want to call it – evil, satanic, rogue ETs and transdimensionals or archonic entities as the Gnostics taught, it appears we’re dealing with a force not natural to our environment, something we call other worldly that exists in another dimension and seeks to transform and take over the world we inhabit. It is not only from another plane of existence, it is parasitic in nature and seeks the complete subjugation of our planet and our species.
Entropic Psycho-Spiritual Vampirism
Similar to the chemical and biological programs, breaking down the human spirit for psychic energy harvesting is another exercise in entropy. This is the big one, their drug of choice. We know the entities that guide and motivate the dark rulers of this world feed off of fear, violence, pain, suffering and even death. For them the more heightened the intensity, the better, which is why drugs, perverted sex, human sacrifice and energy sucking Satanic rituals are so madly pursued by these dark energy vampires.
The breakdown in society’s complexity and the cultural variety of the planet has always been important to them. Our natural tendency as conscious beings is to love and care for each other, unite in cause and purpose for the betterment of all. This tremendously creative force generates incredible spiritual awareness and empowerment and re-creation, like crystals spontaneously growing beautiful fractal structures as consciousness taps into infinite potential.
That forces have always fought against this for the empowerment of some titular energy/control freaks at the top at the expense of the many has apparently been our planet’s plight for untold millennia, but with these advances in technology we’re witnessing an exponential increase that is approaching critical mass.
Our connection to infinite, conscious creative awareness is diametrically opposed to the world they come from. While we revel in empathy, compassion and love they have no such affinity. It is not just foreign to them, but anathema. Their cold, calculated realm runs purely on self gratification, which extends from sexual lust to the dark ecstasy of having control over the lives of others. It is two dimensional. They wish they had what we have but wouldn’t know what to do with it anyway. That’s why they fear us, manifested in the intense hate and violence they breed. They know the only control they can have over a superior consciousness is fear, which shuts off our connection to Source.
Where the Hell Are We?
Is this planet a playing field to see who wakes up and who doesn’t? Are the asleep destined to constant recycling into this strange arena called Earth until they get the point, wake up and make an effort to help get this planet on its true track of conscious awareness and a society based on love and cooperation?
You can sure see why the religions have a field day with this. People want to know, they want this question answered. Even if it’s only a belief, they want to lay it to rest. Unfortunately they play right into the controllers’ hands when they do so.
“Back to sleep, now. Don’t want you to ask too many questions. It’s God’s will, that’s all you need to know. Just feel guilty for your sins, be obedient, and send money.”
Even the dualism we see being played out is part of the game. While there is a struggle between what we call light and dark forces, these dualities we see being played out at different levels are illusions, distractions from the core principle of life which is conscious awareness and our innate inter-connectivity with the creative Source.
There are a lot of very interesting theories as to what’s really going on here. Knowing there are infinite parallel worlds at play makes it all the more exciting. Our particular 3-D theater is quite macabre at the moment and about to get a lot worse if and when these entities keep this up and perhaps unleash even bigger insanities.
That there’s an ongoing ascension of the awakened could be true at some level, but last I checked I’m still here. However things are shifting vibrationally and continue to shift so it should be a thrill wherever we’re headed.
If there is a cavalry to be sent in it sure seems it should have happened a long time ago. Don’t hold your breath if that’s what you’re counting on. This is up to us. That’s how they got away with it, by continually berating and intimidating humanity via lies and deception and giving us religious promises of some future savior. The enforcement trip is mainly a ruse, as there’s no way they could stop all of humanity if we all rose up to throw them out. The problem is centuries of dumbing down, physical weakening and spirit breaking.
That we’re being terraformed for habitation by an alien life form in some way isn’t that far fetched to me. Those who’ve yielded to and carried out the programs of these parasitic entities are clearly no longer human by the natural, spiritual definition, so they are carving out their own hell to say the least, no matter the expense to the races that populate the planet.
One thing for sure, knowing the realities outlined above will help find a more true answer to our current predicament. Much more profound than that, discovering and awakening to the infinite true nature of who we really are is the ongoing solution to it all.
From there everything makes sense. We may not have every answer to every individual question, but we know what’s important.
And that’s important.
Stay awake and aware, conscious and acting accordingly.
We do our parts first and foremost. Universe will lead us one step at a time.
Enjoy the ride!

How are Ophiuchus, Serpens Caput, and the Serpent Energy related to one another? Find out here!
Ophiuchus is the omitted 13th zodiacal sign. The Mayans placed a great interest in the cosmic serpent, so it seems very peculiar that these two signs are connected, yet never spoken about.
I grabbed this image from Google Sky: Ophiuchus (the man) is holding Serpens Caput (the snake / Milky Way Galaxy)
Serpens, or the Serpent, is held by the Serpent Holder, Ophiuchus, and is the only constellation to consist of two separate parts – Serpens Caput (the Head) and Serpens Cauda (the Tail).
Though the stars of this region have been seen as a serpent for thousands of years, their symbolic meaning remains uncertain. It is thought likely that the Serpent and its bearer Ophiuchus are related to the Greek healer-god Aesclepius. The Greeks believed that the serpents of Asclepius could cure diseases, and so belong a long association between serpents and medicine that continues to our own time.
The name translates as the serpent’s neck, though it is sometimes called Cor Serpentis, for the serpent’s heart.
Ophiuchus The Serpent Holder, is a three-part constellation patiently waiting for somebody to notice him space-walking on the plane of the ecliptic, known to astrologers as “the belt of the zodiac.”
Ophiuchus is named by his relationship to the archetypal being called the Serpent. This is the same Serpent that appears in the Garden of Eden story in the bible and also the same Serpent as Quetzalcoatl and Kukulcan, as he is called in Middle America by the Aztecs and the Mayans. Our culture has tended to negate the archetypal energies of the Serpent and associate it with “evil.” The Mayan, Hindu and other indigenous cultures have honored the Serpent and its energy.
The Greek mythological version of Ophiuchus tells the story a mortal “lord in waiting” named Aesclepius, the son of the overlord Apollo, and a mortal mother named Coronis who dies in childbirth, who finds the secret of immortality after observing snakes or serpents sharing herbs.
Aesclepius, according this Greek tale, was given to the medicine half man Chiron by his father to care for. He grew up learning the crafts of the medicine man. After having discovered the potency of those herbal remedies from the snakes he goes on to use it on other mortals.
This doesn’t go well with Zeus who is the grand master of “ruling overlords” and he goes to war with Aesclepius and strikes him down with a thunderbolt. This is a common response from Zeus. But he has some compassion and turns over the constellation of Ophiuchus to the care of Aesclepius. So humanity was once again remain the servants of Zeus the grand master and Aesclepius becomes an immortal.
Every year between November 22, and December 25, the Sun passes through the constellation of Ophiuchus, from our perspective here on the Earth.
Ophiuchus is that it is the only constellation in human form that resides in the direction of the center of our Milky Way Galaxy. In galactic astrology, the center of the Galaxy is analogous to the Higher Self or the Jungian Self. It is only by transcending the “wheel of twelve” and allowing energy to spiral, resonant with the number thirteen, that we as humans, access and maintain a conscious connection to our Higher Self.
The last Age of Ophiuchus was from about 4500 BC to 2500 BC. Now that the Serpent Holder has returned, we have the opportunity to “remember” and once again access ancient wisdom from that time and specifically wisdom related to “serpent energy”.
Since the late 1930s, all the planets have astrologically passed through Ophiuchus’ area of the sky. All but one that is. The planet Pluto began its journey through Ophiuchus and the Serpent around the start of the 1990s. This is when the World Wide Web came into existence. Notice how Ophiuchus is encountering the Serpent through his two hands. Consider how an electric musician, an energy healer and a Web surfer all work with “the energy” through their two hands. Pluto completed its journey through Ophiuchus in 2012.
The serpent is not something to fear. When a new religion replaces the previous religion (or school of thought), it often takes something positive and turns it into a negative. We see that in the bible, as the snake is a representation of temptation and evil, which couldn’t be further from the truth!
The underlying theme of the biblical snake is telling us not to be tempted by Serpens Caput and its incoming energies.
There’s a reason why Ophiuchus is the forgotten constellation and why Serpens Caput’s energy is never spoken about. These magnificent stars help us understand the magnitude of astronomy and how it connects with our everyday lives.

According to Robert Morning Sky, just about everything you have been taught is a lie, including your true galactic lineage, religion and following the light upon death. Robert’sHopi and Apache lineage ties together the missing pieces of what our indoctrination facilities (schools and churches) do not tell us and do NOT want us to know!
In general, Morning Sky’s genetic lineage story follows Zecharia Sitchin’s story, but not completely. This is, indeed, a slave planet where we have been genetically modified to become subservient slaves to our masters.
While most of the controlling extraterrestrials on this planet are malevolent, we have received help from benevolent Pleiadians, who are trying to help EA undo what the Reptilians, Sirians and malevolent Anunnaki have set up on this planet for us. This is part of the untold story from a New Mexico UFO crash around the “4 corners” area of the United States in August, 1947. Apparently, 6 Apache Indians on a vision quest, including Morning Sky’s grandfather, rescued the lone surviving Pleiadian (called a “Star Elder”). This particular Pleiadian usedcrystals to project images to communicate the history of our solar system and mankind, itself.
According to Morning Sky, the light at the end of the tunnel leads to a soul regeneration center where your soul becomes trapped in the reincarnation cycle on this planet, in order to continue serving those entities who are in charge of Mother Earth. This was put into place by the Reptilians, who were given free reign of the planet in order to get people to go into the tunnel of light.
To those who are religious, this story may rock your boat. According to Morning Sky, the Sirians are responsible for all religions in order to control man. The Anunnaki’s Enlilappointed himself as God of this planet, despite his brother Ea (as in EArth) and sister being responsible for the genetic creation of mankind. Enlil is the same “god” that is in the Old Testament of the bible. If you appease Enlil (or follow god’s commandments) you will be “rewarded” with your place in “heaven”. The problem is, your vision of heaven is the same soul regeneration cycle as spoken above. You will continue reincarnating as a slave and as you have done many times beforehand, and your memory will be erased from all previous lifetimes.
The etymology of words also plays an important role in today’s society. For example:
Zu = Ultimate Master
Su = A Master
EA-SU = Teachers
EA-SU = Iesous = Jesus
DA-EA = Deus = root for all of the terms used for “God”.
Suffix EAU = The works of
EAU was changed to EAYU = EAWEH = YAHWEH = JEHOVA
The EASU planted clues deep within caves and caverns all around the planet to help us remember who we are and how to get out of this system. Some of the ESAU are even responsible for building the pyramid and the “Face on Mars”.
The biblical story tells us that Jesus is God’s son, but the truth is that EA’s first born son, Marduk proclaimed himself God and was called Amen RA. He told the slaves that he was the one and only god and even changed the stela, hieroglyphs and pyramid descriptions to reflect his authority while removing the existence of all previous gods. In addition, he eliminated everyone who did not pledge their allegiance to him.
The etymology of Marduk is as follows:
MAR (MR = son of ) DUK (dog – Sirius). Marduk, the sun of a Sirian god, is literally a son of a bitch!
As part of the genetic experiment, EA and his sister gave the humans free will. Despite this, some humans went back to the slave system because this was all they knew. Does this sound familiar? In today’s society, most people are clueless that they are actually economic slaves to the same system. In exchange for going back to the system, Enlil assured them that if they obeyed him, they would be redeemed in the afterlife.
After being removed from his position by his brother Enlil, EA subsequently experimented with the sexual response of his creations by “cranking up” their libidos, which is why the average person thinks about sex every 10 minutes. This was done in order to rebel against Enlil’s heirarchy.
Despite these experiments done to appease the Orion reptilian Queens, EA was still frustrated that he had created a beast who was unaware and had no passion or consciousness. At this point, he was approached from a being from another galaxy outside of the system. These particular beings, in their evolution, left the need for their own physical bodies and learned to use internal energy “to climb the mountain. They didn’t need a rope. They didn’t need a ship. They were able to use their own energy. As they used more and more internal energy, they needed less density. So, these beings from another galaxy were able to generate an evolutionary formula and plugged in a bird, a humanoid bird. As they evolved, these beings lost their density. They lost their need for a physical body but they liked ‘bonking’. For courtship purposes, they retained their wings. But in the dark, there’s no sunlight… the energy beings glowed. They came to Prince Ea and said, “Do you really want to give them independence? Do you really want to give them Free Will? I’ll tell you what we’re going to do. We’re going to give you one of our own strands of DNA. If you hard wire it into the beast, you’re going to condemn him to passion, to inexplicable fire.” Prince EA said, “In a second” and he took that DNA and went to the beast and hard wired it into the beasts. Suddenly he (the beast) was linked to another race in another galaxy. Suddenly, he was aware. He was conscious. These beings were called AKU. The gift that was given to Prince EA (that) was placed inside of the beast, was known asthe Gift of the Feather.”
Related: Do You Dream About Flying Or Going Home?
“The AKU said to Prince EA, “Please let your beasts know this: “We’re going to include a hard-wired clue into this strand of DNA so that they will know (because they have never experienced this)…. they will know how and when you are in touch with your passion.”
Related: What The Church Isn’t Telling You About Nibiru And The Anunnaki
When you’re one with your fire, here’s what’s going to happen to the beast. He’s going to see feathers. They’re going to manifest in front of them and he’s going to dream about feathered beings and he’s going to have feathered beings in his life… birds will fly in. Suddenly, the feathers are going to become a crucial part of his existence. The gift of the feather is this: You’re One with your fire; feathers are going to be falling out of the sky; you’re going to dream about feathered beings; birds are going to appear; feathers are going to appear in the middle of your living room floor; feathers will be everywhere… it is the AKU. They became known as Lord EA’s lords. Prince EA’s title was Enki, Lord of Birds. Lord Ea’s lords were the Enkiats, the Ahnk-KAs… angels, who were responsible for the gift that came from them. Prince EA, eldest son of the Sirian King, responsible for the lordship of Planet EArth and the solar system in his neck of the woods…Prince EA took his own DNA and mixed it with the beasts. In doing that, the reject (the beast) became the son of the Lord Creator… he was offspring of the God of Creation, himself. Lord EA endowed us with his own DNA with the right of royalty. We can assume the damn throne of Planet Earth and our own solar system. The “system said, “Jesus Christ! DON’T LET THEM KNOW THIS STORY” because if 51% of them stand up and say, “I am as mad as hell and I am not going to take it anymore… I want the aliens out, I want the Grays out… I have a right to the throne of this planet”… we’re going to take over and we have a right to do it. And you know what? We’re = RA-Shield = Rothschild) are part of this war on consciousness. " align="right" hspace="15" vspace="15" width="347" height="217" >going to make it a Free Willed, passionate, all loving empire. The system doesn’t want it.
The current administrators of the empire government on the planet have lineage back to the Orion hybrid reptilians, while the money was given to RA’s (Marduk’s) children, the Rockefellers and Rothschilds. As you can see, the names of Rockefeller (RA-KA Pharaohs) and Rothschild (RA-KA-M = RA-KAM <KAM = shield> = RA-Shield = Rothschild) are part of this war on consciousness.
Morning Sky added, “There is a war and we are the prize”.
Some questions that Morning Sky would like you to ask yourself include:
There is a LOT more that you should really listen to and discern for yourself, such as the Divine Feminine, ISIS, Ashtar Command, RA aka Marduk (the sun god), freemasons, shadow government (Chet-U) and much more . Please find the time to read this article and to watch the video at the end of the article.

For the record, these are not my words… they are Robert Morning Sky’s words. What he says makes a lot of sense, but with anything and everything, please use your own discernment. Take what resonates with you and throw out the rest!

“I have always liked the ‘monster within’ idea. I like to think of zombies as being us. Zombies are the blue-collar monsters.” – George Romero
The most heinous thing a human can do is eat another human. Fear of cannibalism along with the other two great taboos, incest and inter-family violence, are the bedrocks of human culture. Without these taboos there is no human civilization, yet zombie cannibals are everywhere, from the most popular TV shows in the US and Europe to the most played PC games. Everywhere we look there is a zombie dragging his feet looking for human prey. The ubiquitous nature of this meme of semi-human creatures that survive only by breaking the most fundamental of human taboos is a clear indicator of a collective cultural pathology.
Humans must not only kill and eat plants and animals to survive, we must make sure they keep coming back so they can be killed and eaten again and again. Life needs death; we must kill to live, and eventually we all wind up as someone else’s food. This paradox lies at the core of the world’s religions and mythologies and the fear/repulsion of eating other humans is the keystone of our culture, without it we turn on ourselves and self-annihilation ensues. The zombie meme is a modern myth pointing to a deep fear of self-destruction.
The great psychologist and mystic Carl Jung was asked if a myth could be equated to a collective dream and he answered this way, “A myth…is the product of an unconscious process in a particular social group, at a particular time, at a particular place. This unconscious process can naturally be equated with a dream. Hence anyone who ‘mythologizes,’ that is, tells myths, is speaking out of this dream.”
If a person had a recurring nightmare that she was eating her family it would be a clear symptom of a profound psychological disturbance. Cultures don’t dream, but they do tell stories and those stories can tell us much about the state of the collective psyche.
Many of the themes in our popular culture are conscious story telling devices with the definite purpose of social engineering/control, but others seem to just emerge from the collective unconscious like the stuff of dreams. The zombie meme is clearly of the latter variety. It’s pointing to a fear that something has broken in our culture and what awaits us is a collective psychotic break of apocalyptic proportions.
In the 1950’s there were widespread fears of a communist takeover that expressed themselves through films like The Village of the Damned or the Invasion of the Body Snatchers. But the zombie meme exposes something much darker in our collective psyche. The fundamental taboo around cannibalism is a pillar of human culture, yet the zombies are obsessive cannibals and we can’t seem to get enough of them.
What does this new archetype of a cannibalistic apocalypse reveal about out culture? By nature archetypes point to transcendent themes that evade definition. They are not symbols that have a clear equivalent, they can only point in the general direction which in the case of the zombie meme is the inverting of some of our most sacred myths and the embracing of our most horrid taboos.
The zombie meme emerged onto the American consciousnesses with George Romero’s 1968 cult classic, The Night of the Living Dead. The archetype was invigorated with Danny Boyles’s 2002 film, 28 Days Later which introduced an important new element: the apocalypse.The meme reached maturity in 2010 when AMC launched The Walking Dead, now the number #1 show on US television for viewers between the ages of 18 and 49. The Walking Dead was created by Frank Darabont, director of The Shawshank Redemption, and is based on a comic book series written by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard. The key to the success of The Walking Dead is the dystopian zombie apocalypse in which the story unravels, allowing it to outperform even the ultimate social opiate, Monday Night Football.
This is not simply an American phenomenon. In France the series The Returned (French: Les Revenants) has been very popular with both viewers and critics. The Returned puts a fascinating twist on the return of the dead- they just start walking home after having been dead for many years as if nothing had happened. The BBC’s In the Flesh focuses on reintegrating zombies, victims of PDS (Partially Dead Syndrome). World War Z had Brad Pitt save the world from fast moving zombies on the big screen and Mel Brook’s son Max even wrote a book titled The Zombie Survival Guide.
The Inverted Christian Mythos
In one episode of The Walking Dead the zombies are seen shuffling under the arch of an episcopal church inscribed with a passage from the gospel of John, “He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life”. Over a billion Catholics in the world regularly participate in the transformation of bread and wine into what they believe is the actual flesh and blood of their savior, Jesus of Nazareth, and then eat him. Catholics believe this sacramental right gives them eternal life. In the zombie meme, however, the infected humans die and are born again but not unto salvation but into a hell of insatiable appetites and mindless meandering.
The Christian myth is agricultural; Christ is killed, buried, and comes to life three days later as the seed emerging from the ground, just as the moon hides for three days behind the sun each month, only to be born again. Christ’s body is the ‘sacred’ meal, the sacrificial food of the gods, his blood is their elixir. The Catholic acts as the god receiving the sacred meal and by doing so gains the eternal qualities of the gods by breaking the most embedded of human taboos – the eating of human flesh. It’s certainly a curios paradox that the sins of man are forgiven by committing cannibalism, as Catholic doctrine clearly states that Jesus was both man and God and the transubstantiation of the Catholic mass physically changes the bread and wine into the flesh and blood of Jesus.
As the Christian myth begins its third millennium, is the zombie meme telling us that this religious story is no longer viable Are billions of ‘zombies’ eating flesh and drinking blood but finding no nourishment? The vast majority of Western people have a profound belief in science and science tells us that the story of Jesus is not to be taken literally, yet our churches insist that the ‘myth’ of Jesus is historical. The Christian software no longer works as the science ‘virus’ has rendered it useless.
Myths are other people’s religions and for Westerners in need of spiritual ‘food’ the Eastern systems of yoga and Buddhism, which don’t depend on dogma that contradicts science, seem to be more palatable to their scientific world views. Unfortunately, those ‘programs’ where written for a machine other than modern Western man.
Joseph Campbell described believing in a literal, historical God as someone eating a menu believing that they were really eating the food. One clear component of the zombie meme is the spiritual starvation we are experiencing in the West. We are eating the menu so to speak – old, meaningless books written by foreign peoples from far off places thousands of years ago, and they give us no nourishment.
Another essential quality of the zombie is it’s unquenchable hunger. No amount of flesh and blood seems able to quench the longing to consume live human flesh. Modern man has a similar problem – no amount of money, sex, gadgets, job titles, drugs, entertainment, pornography, art, religion or gurus seem able to quench our thirst. We live in constant hunger. If we equate the zombie ‘hunger’ for flesh to the human desire for money, the comparison becomes almost uncanny. Most adult humans spend most of their day either making money or spending it while being constantly bombarded with propaganda/advertising to keep them hungry.
From the most humble street vendor to the billionaires on CNBC, no one seems to ever have enough money. Zombies need to eat live human flesh and money is at its core, human labor. Our craving for money is really the craving for the work of others, for the sweat and blood of millions to furnish us with unlimited amounts of food and consumer goods.
The vast majority of Westerners have ceased to create anything tangible. Only one in five Americans actually produce anything. Eating what one produces on a farm or trading manufactured goods for food connects us to life. But when people spend ten hours hours a day in an office looking at a computer screen and two hours in traffic, somehow eating, and living, become abstract. What are we actually doing to create the food, heat, and the shelter we need?
Our hunger for food and things far outstrips our practical needs and has become the cause of our ever more obese, angry, unsatisfied society while our spiritual hunger leaves us addicted, chasing empty consumer thrills. There is no end to what can be consumed and there is never enough for even those with billions; we always need more.
Zombies Don’t Surf
Zombies don’t think, they simply move in big herds looking for their next meal, reminiscent of the herds piling up behind the doors of malls on Black Friday. Curiously, the only way to kill them is to shoot them in their most vulnerable point, their brains. Modern man is almost entirely without out any practical skills. He doesn’t know how to grow food, hunt animals or build a house. He uses all sorts of electronic tools whose core technologies he doesn’t really understand and which he doesn’t have the slightest idea how to fix.
This set of circumstances is a recent development in human history, beginning in the 18th century and growing exponentially in the last 30 years during the information revolution. We are helpless slaves to technologies we don’t understand and to media that programs us to believe all sorts of propaganda designed to keep us from actually thinking critically.
The Zombie Apocalypse
At least since the time of Christ, western man has been waiting for one apocalypse or another. Be it the return of Christ, the turn of the millennium, nuclear war, killer meteorites or UFO’s, apocalyptic fears are nothing new to us. Yet it’s no coincidence that just as the zombie took over prime time with The Walking Dead, the term ‘preppers’ began to appear. The intensity of apocalyptic thinking has noticeably increased in the last few years as shows like Doomsday Preppers is the most watched program in the history of the National Geographic Channel.The latest wave of apocalyptic furor to take over the US is not based on fears of nuclear war or the return of Jesus, but on the collapse of the financial system which gave us a shot over the bow in 2008. We are so far removed from any practical and productive activities that if the extremely complex financial and logistical infrastructure of the world gave way, how would we survive? If our stores were suddenly empty how many people in the West would be able to produce food, fuel and shelter? The vast majority of us are so far removed from the practical necessities of life that we are in a very real sense, mindless, insatiable, endlessly consuming zombies.
Not only do we not understand the technologies we use, we seem to trust that the complex systems that maintain us will continue working seamlessly even as doubts grow over the people who brought us the sub-prime debacle, the Iraq War and quantitative easing (QE). What would happen to the world supply chain if the confidence in the dollar as a reserve currency were lost? Is the ever increasing gap between rich and poor about to explode into all out class/race war? A key element of the zombie meme is the underlying fear of societal collapse.
The Myth is Dead
Sometime after Galileo but before Newton, science lost the need for meaning. For Galileo the universe, including the earth, was alive but by the time of Newton it was a dead machine. The importance of this shift cannot be overestimated. Galileo was describing something that was alive, that had a soul, a soul humans participated in, but by the time of Newton and the Enlightenment we were existing in a cold universe. The world went from breathing like a mother to ticking like a clock. From the earliest known cave paintings made over 40,000 years ago to the mystery schools of pre-Aryan Europe through to medieval Christian Europe, the West has been guided by profound mythical stories.
Science can give us answers to almost all our questions, yet in the end its meaninglessness is disquieting. Science gives us technologies and deep understandings of the mechanics of the universe, but it’s unwilling to the breach the topic of meaning. We are asked to live for cliches, consumerism, hedonism or fundamentalism. Rejecting science is absurd but embracing it is deadening.
If we were able to understand our own religions in the same spirit that we decipher the religions of others (myths) while embracing science (with its limitations), than maybe we could find our way to a new myth that would shed meaning on our cold world. But myths emerge, they are not consciously created, and for the moment we wade in the void of knowing how but not why. We consume but are never filled, we seek but we do not find.
We are all zombies.
About the Author
Working in the therapeutic sector with many different people in many types of relationships – including partners, parents/children and friends – it has become apparent that there are a few key factors which are generally present when the relationship is healthy.
Throughout the following ten hallmarks a common theme is open and clear communication. We may feel or think a certain way, but if we don’t express it, how the hell is anyone meant to know? Real communication is without a doubt integral to a healthy relationship, so if it’s not one of our strong points, then we should keep practicing it until it is.
Honesty and Trust
Being honest with our loved one doesn’t necessarily mean that each person knows everything about each other. We don’t share every dream we have, what we did exactly from the start to finish of each day, how many times we went to the toilet, what attention we got from the opposite sex etc., but it does mean that each person genuinely knows who each other is and how they feel.
For example, if there are things that are concerning us then we should be transparent about it without trying to burden the other person with negative vibes or project it onto them in a harmful way. It is always important to be clear about how we feel, what we are thinking about and what is happening in our lives.
It is also paramount to have the security of trust. There’s not a huge amount of people in our lives that we do fully trust, so with the people we do, it always needs to be reinforced. In this light, however, our kids are not always going to be trustworthy and we have to accept that. They have to develop their own understanding of what trust means and how to develop healthy relationships.
Problems of honesty and trust arise when we force our kids to behave in a certain way that is not likely to be successful. Children are naturally rebellious, so if we give them something to rebel against, they will. An example of when trust and respect between a parent and child has highly evolved is when the child feels comfortable enough to go to their parents and talk about the mistakes they’ve made without feeling they are going to be harshly judged or get into serious trouble. It is the parent’s job to ensure that this occurs, as they’re the adult.
In terms of the level of trust between partners, it becomes obvious in certain circumstances. Just say we’re at a social gathering and we have no idea where our partner is. We could think “Where are they, are they cheating on us or acting disrespectfully?” If so, that’s a indicator of either an unhealthy relationship or an unhealthy view of it. But if we think “I don’t know where they are but I trust them”, then it has obviously been cemented. In this case there might also be little trace of jealousy the curse which is also a strong gauge of a healthy relationship.
The reality is, there is absolutely no substitute for trust, it is simply unparalleled by anything else and is highly influential in making or breaking relationships.
Ultimately, healthy unions understand the true needs and wants of each party. It’s an honest and trustworthy engagement. It is also important to be clear about what may be bugging us and what’s bloody awesome. If we don’t know what we’re doing right, or wrong, then it makes it difficult to grow and expand in a way that will satisfy both parties.
This is why confusion and distrust can potentially lead to a communication and relationship breakdown.
Acceptance and Responsibility
A healthy relationship always accepts it for what it is in each moment. We need to embrace our loved ones for how they feel and who they are. That doesn’t necessarily mean that we just blindly overlook the ways in which they need to grow, but it is important to practice a type of fair judgement which accepts and embraces the other person without any strict agenda of forcing them to change.
When we’re ready to develop certain elements of ourselves, it will happen, naturally.
We also need to take responsibility for ourselves. If each party treated each other equally and realized that we all made mistakes – or that we both have ways in which we need to develop – then certain behaviors or actions that we are sometimes guilty of would be easier to talk about and move past in a healthy manner.
For example, we were all kids once, so if our children are behaving in ways that doesn’t suit our way of thinking, or don’t fit into our moral code, then accepting and understanding that they are in a different place with a different mindset ensures open communication around the issue in a way which embraces their view and actually results in productive outcomes.
We didn’t always think and feel the way we do now, so it’s hypocritical to expect our kids to have worked it out whilst they’re still maturing.
In addition, if we’ve acted hypocritically or made our own mistakes, we need to admit it in order to create the necessary balance. As soon as one party behaves in a way that is superior to the other, the walls of defense and protection are guarded.
Overall, it is important to think of the challenging behaviors of ourselves and our loved ones as learning curves – even if they aren’t liked or condoned – because it opens a dialogue where each party doesn’t feel threatened. If this occurs, our shortcomings can be embraced in a way that encourages us to grow.
Humor and a Positive Mindset
There is without a doubt a need to find humor in our relationships. Laughing at the funny, the mundane, the taboo, and even the serious are excellent ways to find peace in the toughest situations. If we do, we won’t take the complexities and challenges of relationships too seriously.
New research has shown that the act of laughter is a form of meditation. In the past, scientists have measured the brain wave frequencies of people who meditate, and now they have done the same with those experiencing humor. They’ve found that the two acts resemble each other in frequency.
It’s clear that meditation is not only empowering and enlightening, but that it’s also super healthy for dealing with states of anxiety, stress, depression and insomnia, among other ailments. Therefore, finding humor in even the most challenging relationship experience is physically, psychologically, emotionally and spiritually healthy for us.
As an example, how many times have we been in an awkward or emotionally charged experience and somebody makes us laugh? Hopefully, many times. And what happened? Everybody felt instantly better and was able to more functionally deal with the issue at hand.
A healthy relationship also knows how to make fun of itself, which is much easier to do if we’ve got a positive mindset instead of the tendency to have a negative outlook on life. I prefer to see the glass as not half full, but completely full. It might be full of water, beer or wine, full or air, or a mixture of both, but it’s simply always full of both the negative and positive experiences which occur in a relationship. This is a more holistic and realistic conception of reality.
In summary, members of a healthy relationship laugh with and at each other, because it’s a sure-fire way to ensure an equal playing field and face issues in a light-hearted way. Problems are dealt with through a positive mindset. Therefore, no one feels condemned or threatened; the simple act of laughter can put everybody in a space to properly discuss the challenging aspects that arise.
Plus, it’s a super fun and healthy way to live too.
Realistic Expectations and Forgiveness
These are big ones although they’re not always recognized as such. If we have unrealistic expectations of our partner or loved one then we’re destined to create friction, disrespect, divide and conflict – and therefore create an unhealthy relationship.
If we don’t practice forgiveness and continually harbor resentment, then that pain is fated to later manifest in a way that will inherently be unhealthy. This happens a lot in intimate relationships. We all make mistakes that require one person to forgive the other. If we continue in the relationship, but don’t forgive them for their mistakes, then it is intrinsically unhealthy for everyone involved. We need to forgive to move on and grow in a healthy way.
Plus not practicing forgiveness is self-abusive anyway.
A parent or a partner may also have expectations of their loved one that are very unlikely to happen, or won’t happen in the time period that they want. Not only are there certain characteristics and traits that won’t change much about people – no matter how much we push for it, including some that are specific to each sex – but some of the growth that people require takes time and maturity to achieve.
If we expect the change to occur in an unrealistic time frame, instead of accepting and embracing the moment for what it is, then we are without a doubt causing unnecessary suffering for ourselves and our loved ones. That old saying ‘choose your battles wisely’ applies here.
If we unrealistically fight for certain changes or ideals, then we’re likely to create an unhealthy relationship.
It can also plague a parent and child relationship. Kids will be kids – so as mentioned, instead of having unrealistic expectations on who we think they should be, we should instead accept and embrace them for who they are in that moment and try to understand and facilitate the big picture of their growth. This will help us to respectfully guide them so that they eventually do ‘get it’.
Again, this isn’t about just recklessly condoning the behavior of our significant other, or continually forgiving them in a way that doesn’t encourage them to take responsibility for their behaviors; it’s about caring for ourselves, our loved one and our relationship in a realistic way.
We’re not perfect, so we better bloody well not expect the behavior of others to always be too.
Love and Respect
Clearly, not all Crystals have the same characteristics. However, if your child (or you) have most of these characteristics, and were born in or after the mid-to-late 1990’s, it is likely that you are, or he or she is a Crystal.
Affectionate and Loving: The Crystals embody the vibration of love that they are bringing to the planet. They not only remind us of who we are – beings of love – they embody it. They are gentle.
Intuitive Communicators / Late Talkers: Because they can communicate through telepathy, often they are late talkers because they don’t need to talk to communicate. One mother of a Crystal told me that the first time her child looked at her after exiting the womb, she clearly heard her say to her telepathically, “I’m here to teach you.”
Spiritually Sensitive: Crystals have a highly developed spirituality.
Close Bond with Nature: Crystals have a natural affinity for the plant, animal and insect kingdoms. The Crystals can communicate with nature, and they go to nature for rest and rejuvenation. (Many Indigos’ do this too.) (One nine year-old Crystal I know adamantly refused to let her mother buy a Christmas tree because she could not stand to have the tree cut down.)
Appearance of Crystals: The Crystals have large blue eyes or large dark eyes. They look at us from what appears to be a place of deep knowledge. They appear wise. They have an intense, knowing stare.
Dreamy and Talk about their Dreams at an Early Age: Many Crystals have the ability to communicate to the other side, apparently from birth. Some have full access to their memories of life on the other side and/or of previous lifetimes. (Good Morning America had a group of Indigos’ and Crystals and their parents on the show. One of the children was fully aware that she was her mother’s mother who had passed away. And she had the memories to prove it.) Because they are so in touch with the other side, they go there frequently and can have a dreamy look. They may be called day dreamers – because they are! (One very bright young Crystal I know started drawing spirals with both hands interchangeably when he was less than two years old. He demanded to have a crayon and when his mother gave one to him, he immediately started intentionally drawing spiral after spiral. He’s done this for years. It soothes him.)
Misdiagnosed as Autistic and Asperger’s Syndrome: We have seen a dramatic increase in the number of Autistic children. Crystals are very sensitive and vulnerable. Some go deeply within to protect themselves. They disconnect from their environment and people in it. This mirrors the symptoms of Autism and Asperger’s, so Crystals can be misdiagnosed.
TRIVIA: There are no cases of Autism amongst the Amish population who, by no coincidence, do not get vaccination shots.
Drawn to Crystals and Rocks: As they have an affinity for the nature kingdom, Crystals also have an affinity with all types of crystals and rocks. Many also know theirproperties and how to use crystals and rocks to heal, change energy fields, and the like.
Highly Sensitive Body: Crystals have very sensitive bodies. They need organically grown food. Many prefer a vegetarian diet. Some get sick if they eat traditional high carb, high fat, high sugar, low energy fast food. (The Universal School of Life, which was started in Canada in 1982 by Michael Deunov to educate Indigos, and now Crystals and Rainbow children and their families, organically grows all the food the children eat.) Many Crystals have allergies and food sensitivities. (See Crystal Mom, Jodi Parker’s article, Experiences with Healing, Vaccinations, Food, Pollutants, Autism, Medicines and Parenting to read about her experiences with her Crystal son, Joshua’s, physical sensitivities.)

“Of all the words of mice and men, the saddest are, “It might have been.”
We all have something at the back of our minds that we wish to have done differently or haven’t done at all. We often ask ourselves what could be different if we tried harder to be better. Here is a list of things you will regret in the long run.
1. Letting other people shape your world
You are the architect of your own life. When you know who you really are and what you want most, you have discovered two of the most important things in your life. But it takes courage and persistence to actually go after what you want to achieve. This kind of responsibility is feared by many people and usually they allow others to create their dreams for them. Maybe it is because they aren’t brave enough to create their own life path or are too scared to do it alone. And maybe it’s because they fear they are going to be judged and considered crazy. But the truth is, if you have people who disagree with you, that means you are standing for something you believe in. This is more beneficial for you because it means you are listening to your heart. And you will never regret that.
2. Sticking to your bad old habits
Most people have bad habits that they want to change. But sadly, not many have the will and patience to break their old unresourceful manners and build new healthier ones. In the long run, you might look back on your life and wish you had started changing what you dislike about yourself earlier. Of course, it is not an easy thing to do, but it is definitely worth it. Aim to be the strongest version of yourself and don’t settle with less than you deserve. Don’t wait for the change to happen, make it happen.
3. Giving up
Failure isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It is just a new opportunity to learn something, to grow and to try again when the time comes. In life, things don’t always unfold the way we expect but that shouldn’t be a reason to give up. Successful people are never the ones who surrendered. They are the ones who keep going even when the road gets rough. You’ve probably heard the saying that a smooth sea never made a skillful sailor.
4. Hiding your real self (behind a mask)
It can be overwhelming to keep the person you really are hidden all the time. Not expressing the emotions you feel and the way you think can only make you feel miserable and disconnected from your circle of friends. Wearing a mask is a risky thing to do because someday you might realize you have lost yourself by trying to impress other people. Not knowing who you really are can be a really scary experience. So, don’t try to satisfy other people’s expectations of you. Just be your true self and listen to your own inner voice. In that way you will stay true to yourself and you won’t need anyone’s approval.
5. Constantly waiting for the right time
Many people will come up with different excuses for not taking action NOW. Some wait until tomorrow, others wait for the right time or for a sign. The problem is that they think they have more time than they actually do. This might hold them to wait forever. If you have dreams, take action towards them today. Not tomorrow, nor next week. Now is the second best time to start. The best moment was actually yesterday.
6. Tolerating negative energy
Negative energy can be contagious. Feeding your soul with unresourceful energy will steal your joy and make you feel tired. Choose wisely what kind of people you let in your life because their energy can affect you directly. So, do you want grumpy and hateful people by your side or do you want positive and loving ones? The choice is yours.
7. Striving to control every little thing
Life is meant to be lived, not perfected. Don’t struggle with things that are out of your control. Sometimes what we all need is to relax and let life happen to us. You don’t have to know what exactly is going to happen next.
8. Not taking care of your health
Many people live fast-paced lives and forget to pause and think about how they treat their bodies. Many underestimate the power of having a nutritious diet and breaking a sweat a few days of the week. So spend some time to educate yourself on how to improve your body’s functions and your mind will follow.
9. Being lazy
Being lazy and stuck in one place for too long won’t get you far. As well as dreaming and planning too much and doing too little. Remember that you are responsible for your life and staying in your comfort zone won’t win you any battles. So quit slacking and start building the life of your dreams! You know you deserve it.
