The only way to overcome the power of money is regain our courage and solidarity. Here's how to do that.
Many Americans know that the United States is not a democracy but a
"corporatocracy," in which we are ruled by a partnership of giant
corporations, the extremely wealthy elite and corporate-collaborator
government officials. However, the truth of such tyranny is not enough
to set most of us free to take action. Too many of us have become
pacified by corporatocracy-created institutions and culture.
Some activists insist that this political passivity problem is caused by
Americans' ignorance due to corporate media propaganda, and others
claim that political passivity is caused by the inability to organize
due to a lack of money. However, polls show that on the important issues
of our day - from senseless wars, to Wall Street bailouts, to corporate
tax-dodging, to health insurance rip-offs - the majority of Americans
are not ignorant to the reality that they are being screwed. And
American history is replete with organizational examples - from the
Underground Railroad, to the Great Populist Revolt, to the Flint
sit-down strike, to large wildcat strikes a generation ago - of
successful rebels who had little money but lots of guts and solidarity.
The elite spend their lives stockpiling money and have the financial
clout to bribe, divide and conquer the rest of us. The only way to
overcome the power of money is with the power of courage and solidarity.
When we regain our guts and solidarity, we can then more wisely select
from - and implement - time-honored strategies and tactics that
oppressed peoples have long used to defeat the elite. So, how do we
regain our guts and solidarity?
1. Create the Cultural and Psychological "Building Blocks" for Democratic Movements
Historian Lawrence Goodwyn has studied democratic movements such as
Solidarity in Poland, and he has written extensively about the populist
movement in the United States that occurred during the end of the 19th
century (what he calls "the largest democratic mass movement in American
history"). Goodwyn concludes that democratic movements are initiated by
people who are neither resigned to the status quo nor intimidated by
For Goodwyn, the cultural and
psychological building blocks of democratic movements are individual
self-respect and collective self-confidence. Without individual
self-respect, we do not believe that we are worthy of power or capable
of utilizing power wisely, and we accept as our role being a subject of
power. Without collective self-confidence, we do not believe that we can
succeed in wresting away power from our rulers.
Thus, it is
the job of all of us - from parents, to students, to teachers, to
journalists, to clergy, to psychologists, to artists and EVERYBODY who
gives a damn about genuine democracy - to create individual self-respect
and collective self-confidence.
2. Confront and Transform ALL Institutions that Have Destroyed Individual Self-Respect and Collective Self-Confidence
In "Get Up, Stand Up, " I detail 12 major institutional and cultural
areas that have broken people's sprit of resistance, and all are
"battlefields for democracy" in which we can fight to regain our
individual self-respect and collective self confidence:
• Isolation and bureaucratization
• "Fundamentalist consumerism" and advertising/propaganda
• Student loan debt and indentured servitude
• The decline of unions/solidarity among working people
• Greed and a "money-centric" culture
• Fear-based schools that teach obedience
• Psychopathologizing noncompliance
• Elitism via professional training
• The corporate media
• The US electoral system
As Ralph Waldo Emerson observed, "All our things are right and wrong
together. The wave of evil washes all our institutions alike."
3. Side Each Day in Every Way With Anti-Authoritarians
We can recover our self-respect and strength by regaining our
integrity. This process requires a personal transformation to overcome
our sense of powerlessness and fight for what we believe in. Integrity
includes acts of courage resisting all illegitimate authorities. We must
recognize that in virtually every aspect of our life in every day, we
can either be on the side of authoritarianism and the corporatocracy or
on the side of anti-authoritarianism and democracy.
Specifically, we can question the legitimacy of government, media,
religious, educational and other authorities in our lives, and if we
establish that an authority is not legitimate, we can resist it. And we
can support others who are resisting illegitimate authorities. A huge
part of solidarity comes from supporting others who are resisting the
illegitimate authorities in their lives. Walt Whitman had it right:
"Resist much, obey little. Once unquestioning obedience, once fully
4. Regain Morale by Thinking More Critically About Our Critical Thinking
While we need critical thinking to effectively question and challenge
illegitimate authority - and to wisely select the best strategies and
tactics to defeat the elite - critical thinking can reveal some ugly
truths about reality, which can result in defeatism. Thus, critical
thinkers must also think critically about their defeatism, and realize
that it can cripple the will and destroy motivation, thus perpetuating
the status quo.
William James (1842–1910), the psychologist,
philosopher, and occasional political activist (member of the
Anti-Imperialist League who, during the Spanish-American War, said, "God
damn the US for its vile conduct in the Philippine Isles!") had a
history of pessimism and severe depression, which helped fuel some of
his greatest wisdom on how to overcome immobilization. James, a critical
thinker, had little stomach for what we now call "positive thinking,"
but he also came to understand how losing belief in a possible outcome
can guarantee its defeat. Antonio Gramsci (1891–1937), an Italian
political theorist and Marxist activist who was imprisoned by Mussolini,
came to the same conclusions. Gramsci's phrase "pessimism of the
intellect, optimism of the will" has inspired many critical thinkers,
including Noam Chomsky, to maintain their efforts in the face of
5. Restore Courage in Young People
The corporatocracy has not only decimated America's labor union
movement, it has almost totally broken the spirit of resistance among
young Americans - an even more frightening achievement. Historically,
young people without family responsibilities have felt most freed up to
challenge illegitimate authority. But America's education system creates
fear, shame and debt - all killers of the spirit of resistance. No
Child Left Behind, Race to the Top and standardized testing tyranny
results in the kind of fear that crushes curiosity, critical thinking
and the capacity to constructively resist illegitimate authority.
Rebel teachers, parents, and students - in a variety of overt and
covert ways - have already stopped complying with corporatocracy
schooling. We must also stop shaming intelligent young people who reject
college, and we must instead recreate an economy that respects all
kinds of intelligence and education. While the corporatocracy exploits
student loan debt to both rake in easy money and break young people's
spirit of resistance, the rest of us need to rebel against student loan
debt and indentured servitude. And parents and mental health
professionals need to stop behavior-modifying and medicating young
people who are resisting illegitimate authority.
6. Focus on Democracy Battlefields Where the Corporate Elite Don't Have Such a Large Financial Advantage
The emphasis of many activists is on electoral politics, but the elite
have a huge advantage in this battlefield, where money controls the US
By focusing exclusively on electoral
politics at the expense of everything else, we: (1) give away power when
we focus only on getting leaders elected and become dependent on them;
(2) buy into the elite notion that democracy is all about elections; (3)
lose sight of the fact that democracy means having influence over all
aspects of our lives; and (4) forget that if we have no power in our
workplace, in our education and in all our institutions, then there will
never be democracy worthy of the name.
Thus, we should focus
our fight more on the daily institutions we experience. As Wendell Berry
said, "If you can control a people's economy, you don't need to worry
about its politics; its politics have become irrelevant."
7. Heal from "Corporatocracy Abuse" and "Battered People's Syndrome" to Gain Strength
Activists routinely become frustrated when truths about lies,
victimization and oppression don't set people free to take action. But
when we human beings eat crap for too long, we gradually lose our
self-respect to the point that we become psychologically too weak to
take action. Many Americans are embarrassed to accept that, after years
of corporatocracy subjugation, we have developed "battered people's
syndrome" and what Bob Marley called "mental slavery." To emancipate
ourselves and others, we must:
• Move out of denial and accept that we are a subjugated people.
• Admit that we have bought into many lies. There is a dignity,
humility, and strength in facing the fact that, while we may have once
bought into some lies, we no longer do so.
ourselves and others for accepting the abuser's lies. Remember the liars
we face are often quite good at lying.
• Maintain a sense
of humor. Victims of horrific abuse, including those in concentration
camps and slave plantations, have discovered that pain can either
immobilize us or be transformed by humor into energy.
beating ourselves up for having been in an abusive relationship. The
energy we have is better spent on healing and then working to change
the abusive system; this provides more energy, and when we use this
energy to provide respect and confidence for others, everybody gets
8. Unite Populists by Rejecting Corporate Media's Political Divisions
The corporate media routinely divides Americans as "liberals,"
"conservatives" and "moderates," a useful division for the
corporatocracy, because no matter which of these groups is the current
electoral winner, the corporatocracy retains power. In order to defeat
the corporatocracy, it's more useful to divide people in terms of
authoritarians versus anti-authoritarians, elitists versus populists and
corporatists versus anticorporatists.
anti-authoritarians and libertarian anti-authoritarians passionately
oppose current US wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the Wall Street bailout,
the PATRIOT Act, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the
so-called "war on drugs" and several other corporatocracy policies.
There are differences between anti-authoritarians but, as Ralph Nader
and Ron Paul have together recently publicly discussed, we can form
coalitions and alliances on these important power-money issues.
One example of an anti-authoritarian democratic movement (which I am
involved in) is the mental health treatment reform movement, comprised
of left anti-authoritarians and libertarians. We all share distrust of
Big Pharma and contempt for pseudoscience, and we believe that people
deserve truly informed choice regarding treatment. We respect Erich
Fromm, the democratic-socialist psychoanalyst, along with Thomas Szasz,
the libertarian psychiatrist, both passionate anti-authoritarians who
have confronted mental health professionals for using dogma to coerce
9. Unite "Comfortable Anti-Authoritarians" and "Afflicted Anti-Authoritarians
This "comfortable-afflicted" continuum is based on the magnitude of
pain that one has simply getting through the day. The term comfortable
anti-authoritarian is not a pejorative one, but refers to those
anti-authoritarians lucky enough to have decent paying and maybe even
meaningful jobs, or platforms through which their voices are heard or
social supports in their lives.
Many of these comfortable
anti-authoritarians may know that there are millions of Americans
working mindless jobs in order to hold on to their health insurance, or
hustling two low-wage jobs to pay college loans, rent and a car payment,
or who may be unable to find even a poorly paying, mindless job and are
instead helplessly watching eviction or foreclosure and bankruptcy
close in on them. However, unless these comfortable anti-authoritarians
have once been part of that afflicted class - and remember what it feels
like - they may not be able to fully respect the afflicted's emotional
The afflicted need to recognize that human beings often
become passive because they are overwhelmed by pain (not because they
are ignorant, stupid, or lazy), and in order to function at all, they
often shut down or distract themselves from this pain. Some comfortable
anti-authoritarians assume that people's inactions are caused by
ignorance. This not only sounds and smells like elitism, it creates
resentment for many in the afflicted class who lack the energy to be
engaged in any activism. Respect, resources and anything that concretely
reduces their level of pain is likely to be far more energizing than a
scolding lecture. That's the lesson of many democratic movements,
including the Great Populist Revolt.
10. Do Not Let Debate Divide Anti-Authoritarians
Spirited debate is what democracy is all about, but when debate turns
to mutual antipathy and divides anti-authoritarians, it plays into the
hands of the elite. One such divide among anti-elitists is over the
magnitude of change that should be worked for and celebrated. On one
extreme are people who think that anything is better than nothing at
all. At the other extreme are people who reject any incremental change
and hold out for total transformation.
We can better unite by asking these questions:
Does the change increase individual self-respect and collective
self-confidence, and increase one's energy level to pursue even greater
democracy? Or does it feel like a sellout that decreases individual
self-respect and collective self-confidence, and de-energizes us?
Utilizing the criteria of increased self-respect and collective
self-confidence, those of us who believe in genuine democracy can more
constructively debate whether the change is going to increase strength
to gain democracy or is going to take the steam out of a democratic
movement. Respecting both sides of this debate makes for greater
solidarity and better decisions.
To summarize, democracy will
not be won without guts and solidarity. Risk-free green actions - such
as shopping from independents, buying local, recycling, composting,
consuming less, not watching television and so on - can certainly help
counter a dehumanizing world.
However, revolutions that truly
transform fundamental power inequities and enable us to feel like men
and women rather than children and slaves require risk, guts and
“In this particular body through which this, then, at
present is emanating, the gland with its thread known as the pineal gland is
the channel along which same then operates, and with the subjugation of the
consciousness - physical consciousness - there arises, as it were, a cell from
the creative forces within the body to the entrance of the conscious mind, or
brain, operating along, or traveling along, that of the thread or cord as when
severed separates the physical, the soul, or the spiritual body.” Edgar Cayce
When you were an infant, you were born with a third eye
fully open to witness the power and glory of the universe. From a subatomic
perspective to the infinity of the galaxies, you were able to see life fully
and appreciate its wisdom and bounty. But as you grew older, you were
conditioned by parents, teachers, managers, peers, and everyone else around you
to cover your third eye with layer upon l...
ayer of illusion and confusion, until your third eye was
closed and your inner witness was in the dark, leaving you empty to the world’s
wonders and the wisdom that your mystic sight could have delivered.
As an example of how conditioning can close the third eye
and forever affect life and the perception of the world, imagine a mother
holding a stuffed teddy bear out to a child and saying, "Look at the
little bear, how cute and soft he is!" The child begins to recognize that
shape and associate it with the name "teddy bear," and he is
introduced to other concepts such as color, size, texture, etc. Thus, begins
the child’s habit of replacing his own perceptions of the world with a process
of labeling, reacting emotionally and physically to external suggestions, and
mentally processing reactions and experiences according to how others perceive
things. As he grows, the child gets farther and farther away from living life
as it happens in the moment - the pure, unfiltered experience with which he was
born. And upon reaching adulthood and beyond, the process of analyzing,
comparing, judging, and discussing things with others results in being even
less connected to the Now.
When you put shutters on a window, very little light comes
through and the people inside the shuttered room can only imagine what might be
outside, on the other side of the shuttered window. So they are in the dark
about what life is really about outside the shutters. In the same way that it
is impossible to describe an orange adequately to someone who has not ever seen
the color orange and has never tasted citrus, a person cannot fully understand
seeing with the third eye from simply reading about it or hearing someone else
describe it. You must experience it yourself in order to realize the power of
perception, awareness, and vision that can enhance and enrich your life if your
third eye is open to the glories of the natural universe that were open to you
as a child. But now, as an adult, you have the maturity to appreciate those
wonders and understand them.
"In light of this work, the fact that 10 hertz

Recently a group under Indian bio-physicist Sarada Subrahmnanyam

relationship has been conclusively proven by recent studies of the
pineal gland. This tiny organ in the center of the cranium has turned
out to be more than the vaguely defined "third eye" of the mystics. It
produces melatonin and serotonin, two neurohormones that, among many
other functions, directly control all of the biocycles. The lamprey,
akin to the ancestor of all vertebrates, as well as certain lizards, has
an actual third eye, close to the head's surface and directly
responsive to light, intstead of the "blind" pineal found in other
vertebrates. The eminent British anatomist J.Z. Young has recently
shown that this organ controls the daily rhythm of skin color changes
that these animals undergo.
For our story the most important
point is that very small magnetic fields influence the pineal gland.
Several research groups have shown that applying a magnetic field of
half a gauss or less, oriented so as to add to or subtract from the
earth's normal field, will increase or decrease production of pineal
melatonin and serotonin. Other groups have observed physical changes in
the gland's cells in response to such fields. The experiments were
controlled for illumination, since it has been known for several years
that shining a light on the head somehow modifies the gland's hormone
output even though it's buried so deeply within the head in most common
vertebrates that, as far as we know, it can't react directly to the
The Arcturians Speak: THE SEVENTH DIMENSION OF THE MOTHERSHIP
has shared his experience of his Super-subconscious Being. We will now
tell you about the Super-subconscious of our Mothership. Of course, all
states of consciousness intermingle within the Being of our Mothership,
but just as your brain has certain areas that are more inclined to
generate certain states of consciousness, our Ship has certain areas
that generate certain frequencies of emanation that encourage correlate
states of consciousness.
The Super-subconscious, which represents
your animal container, represents the container of our Ship. In other
words, the Super-subconscious of the Mothership is responsible for all
the maintenance of the ever-changing form of the Ship. Just as your
animal body grows and changes in reaction to different energy fields,
our Mothership’s living structure constantly changes according to
All information of all interactions and
alterations of the Mothership since her multidimensional manifestation
are stored in the Ship’s Super-subconscious. The Mothership that we have
been discussing is actually a prototype, an archetypical example of
most of our Motherships. Because this Ship has the most extensive Log of
interactions with ascending realities, we have chosen Her to assist
Gaia with Her Planetary Ascension.
We, the Arcturians, have no
aging process, as we do not exist within time. Furthermore, we prefer to
visit or use form rather than wear it. We think of form as you might
think of a coat. You would not wear a coat unless it was necessary.
Furthermore, while you are in the privacy of your home, you wear
clothing that is comfortable. However, if guests come to visit, you may
put on a special outfit.
In the same manner, while we are
relaxing on the Ship, we are usually formless. However, we put on the
appropriate form when we have visitors. The appropriate form is the
version of our vaguely humanoid form that is most pleasing and
comfortable to our guests. Hence, we usually wear a form with a head,
body, two arms and two legs. On the other hand, when we have
non-humanoid visitors, we often adapt our form to be similar to theirs.
Mothership can change shapes, and any of the shapes to which the
Mothership has ever adapted is stored in Her Super-subconscious, which
is generally located, but not limited to, the bottom areas of the Ship.
We are aware that you are accustomed to thinking in terms of top and
bottom. Hence, we will use them.
However, there are many
occasions in which our Mothership takes on the form of an orb, and there
is no bottom or top. In this case, your human thinking would conceive
that the Super-subconscious is on the outside of the Ship. These
assumptions are also incorrect, as outside and inside are human terms
that do not apply to our reality.
We are happy to speak in terms
in which you can create a mental picture. On the other hand, please
realize that your sequential manner of thinking will greatly limit your
ability to understand the fifth dimension and beyond. We are pleased to
see that many of you are attempting to adapt to your innate,
Just as our Super-subconscious carries
the patterns of every form the Ship has ever taken, our Seventh
Dimensional consciousness holds the patterns of every Oversoul of every
reality with whom we have interfaced. Allow us to define Oversoul for
you. The seventh dimension is the last dimension that engages form as a
means of expression.
Beings of the eighth dimension and beyond,
such as the Arcturians, lower their resonance into their seventh
dimensional Oversoul and go through that closet to find every form they
have ever worn in any reality. Of course, this is a metaphoric
definition, but if we were to speak in our timeless, formless Light
Language, you would not understand us.
Therefore, we must search
the information in the brain of our embodied representative to translate
our message. Our language is imagistic and is best translated in a
metaphoric manner. However, these metaphors would not be technologically
correct. Also, know that technology and creativity are the same term in
our reality. With that explanation, we will say that the Oversoul is
the Soul of the Soul.
From the “bottom” of the pyramid of
incarnation into the physical, individuals merge into increasingly
expanded perceptions of their SELF as their consciousness expands. For
example, the base of the pyramid would be the Individual/Personal
experience of SELF. Over 3D time, this experience of SELF expands into a
Familial/Cultural experience of SELF, then into a National expression,
then to a Planetary expression of SELF.
You, our Ascending Ones,
have fully embraced your Planetary SELF and are preparing to perceive
yourselves as your Galactic SELF. You have completed your cycle of
polarized individuality and are ready to enter the fifth dimensional
expression of your Galactic SELF.
There are Galactic Beings who
are not yet fifth dimensional, and you can enjoy that experience as
well. Your Galactic expression of SELF will eventually expand into your
Universal expression of SELF.
Please remember that your
Multidimensional SELF is infinitely alive and aware. Therefore, when we
speak of your progression, we actually mean the progression of the
primary focus of the consciousness of expression of your SELF to whom we
are speaking. However, ALL of your expressions are simultaneously
expanding into higher frequencies of reality or diminishing into lower
frequency expressions of SELF, such as taking a new physical form.
as your individual focus of SELF expands into your Planetary SELF, your
Planetary focus of consciousness expands into your Galactic SELF and
your Galactic focus expands into your Universal SELF. Your higher
dimensional expanded SELF can easily perceive and interact with your
lower dimensional versions of SELF.
Therefore, you will not
necessarily lose contact with your Personal expression of SELF when Gaia
ascends. However, just as you can see a rock, but the rock does not see
you, your lower dimensional expressions of SELF can only communicate
with their higher expressions by expanding their consciousness to
encompass that frequency of reality.
The lower dimensional
components of your SELF are still your Multidimensional SELF, but YOU
have raised your primary focus into the higher dimensions of reality.
Please remember, that these expressions are NOT lined up in a third
dimensional manner. They are all interwoven and intermingled within the
NOW of the ONE.
You will find that as your consciousness expands
into the higher frequencies of expression, your third dimensional
thinking will become increasingly cumbersome and somewhat obsolete.
Hence, you will begin to forget how to think in that old-fashioned
manner and unconsciously think from your Multidimensional SELF.
side effect of this experience might make you think that you are
getting dementia or some other earthly condition. The truth is that you
are expanding beyond ALL 3D earthly conditions, and are discovering that
your old way of thinking is exceedingly cumbersome.
you need a buggy whip when you are driving an automobile? Therefore, why
would you need a sequential language of separate words when you think
within the limitless, timeless NOW?
There are about two of your
months left for this cycle of focusing your consciousness into higher
and higher frequencies of expression. However, once your focus is firmly
planted in your Planetary Expression of SELF, you will be aligned with
Gaia is expanding her Focus into Her fifth
dimensional SELF. Hence, Her polarities of past and future are
collapsing into the NOW, and 3D time is closing. Once you are fully
aligned with Gaia’s NOW, there will not be time as you know it. You will
know time, but not as passing moments in which you must do something or
be somewhere. You will begin to adjust your thinking into the
limitless, timeless NOW.
Your Super-subconscious animal self, who
is very comfortable with the NOW, will begin to fulfill the “ideals”
that are passed into it via your Oversoul. An ideal differs from an idea
in that an ideal is a Divine Concept that your consciousness has been
able to embrace. You have been able to embrace these concepts because
you have expanded your focus from your deepest, Super-subconscious
animal self into your seventh dimensional Oversoul SELF.
Super-conscious holds the codes and patterns of all your earthly
incarnations. This component of your being steadily opens once you have
focused your attention on the HERE and NOW Beingness of your animal
self. Your Oversoul holds the codes and patterns of all the incarnations
you have experienced in your current Galaxy.
This component of
your being steadily opens once you have expanded your focus into your
Galactic SELF. With this expansion of consciousness, you will have
completed the Alpha/Omega of your Planetary SELF, and be totally
prepared to release all components of your denser, human form.
these processes of Ascension overlap so that our Ascending Ones will
always have a solid, familiar format, as well as a perceivable potential
locked in to your consciousness. Hence, the Ascension process is much
like crossing a rushing stream by walking from one stone to the next.
start on the shore, and then place one foot on a stepping stone. You do
not place your second foot on the next stone until you are certain that
it will hold your weight. Then you will keep your foot on that stone
while you test the next stone with your other foot.
All of our
Ascending Ones have expanded their consciousness beyond their
Individual/Personal SELF. However, some of them are still attached to
their Familial/Cultural SELF, which will keep them from releasing their
perceived family, cultural and national obligations and/or attachments.
is nothing wrong with maintaining this attachment, but when you allow
your family, culture and nation to hold you back from your process of
Ascension, you are not able to assist with Planetary Ascension. Not
participating in Planetary Ascension greatly limits your process of
Personal Ascension, as Gaia is offering a free ride into the fifth
dimensional expression of reality.
However, those who remain
attached to the third/fourth dimensional concepts of family, culture and
nations will not be able to adhere their consciousness to the Unity
Consciousness of Planetary Ascension. Within Unity Consciousness, every
being is of the same ability and power.
In fact many children –
and even infants – are more aligned with Ascension then their parents,
who have had a lifetime of brainwashing. Cultures and Nations divide
Gaia’s planet and restrict Unity Consciousness to Family, Cultural or
National Consciousness. To catch the wave of Planetary Ascension you
need to blend your consciousness into the immense Flow of Planetary
Those who maintain the 3D hooks of family, culture and
nation (which include the religious and scientific 3D thinking) will
remain in the illusion of third dimensional Earth for as long as that
hologram is running. Therefore, they will have time to expand their
consciousness if they choose.
Also, once the final remnants of
darkness are expelled from the body of Gaia, the cycles of fear that
hold the third dimensional attachments in place will be completed. This
fear is very close to being vanquished largely because of you, the
Ascending Ones, who have become Masters of your Emotions and expelled
fear from your consciousness.
Fear is not alive like love. Love,
especially unconditional love, is a living creative force seeking a
being through which it can be expressed. Fear, on the other hand, is the
“Grim Reaper” who cuts back the old and dying so that the new can be
created and nurtured by love. Hence, fear is a necessary component of a
third/fourth dimensional reality that is bound to a planetary existence.
people, families and nations cannot leave the planet in search of a new
home in the ever-expanding Galaxy, members of the planet must die so
that there is room for expansion into a new way of being. Unfortunately,
fear became embedded so deeply in the consciousness of many incarnated
ones that they killed others to assure that they would have enough.
for possession and power is the result of the Earthling’s Draconian
DNA. This DNA is very strong and powerful, as well as highly intelligent
and decisive. However, if the human carries too much fear, they can
easily move into the kill or be-killed mindset of that DNA. On the other
hand, through Mastering your thoughts and emotions, you can use that
DNA to assist you – rather than to control you, or others.
the Master of your Energy allows you conscious transit into your
seventh dimensional Oversoul, which is the storehouse of ALL your
Galactic knowledge, gifts, experiences and incarnations. Just as the
Super-subconscious holds the codes and patterns for your Planetary SELF,
the Oversoul holds the codes and patterns for your Galactic Self.
is through the activating of these codes that you can consciously
connect with us, your Galactic Family. When you meet, commune and
intertwine with one of your Galactic expressions of SELF, you will
regain your Galactic perception of reality. Many of you will enter into
intimate relationship with the YOU that is holding a higher dimensional
expression of your SELF.
Of course, you have many expressions of
your Galactic SELF, just as you have many expressions of your human
self. When you can fall into the Flow and surrender into the FEEL of
your Galactic SELF you can remember how to live two, simultaneous
realities. With practice, you will be able to experience more and more
simultaneous realities within the NOW of the ONE.
In this manner,
you will regain connection with your Galactic Expression of SELF. Your
Galactic expressions are aligned with you in the NOW and offering you a
hand up into the fifth dimension. Every experience that you can remember
having with your SELF in the fifth dimension and beyond is a gift that
we ask you to share with the members of your Ascending reality.
will allow you time to ponder what we have shared so far, and return
shortly so that Mytre can share his first experience of the Seventh
Dimensional Consciousness of our Mothership.
75 BILLION HUMAN BEINGS HAVE LIVED ON EARTH IN RECORDED HISTORY. WHERE ARE THEY NOW? WHERE ARE YOU NOW?
However, if you are reincarnated (take up a new body) every 40 years,
or so, on the average, how many lifetimes might you have lived on Earth? According to the Top Secret Military transcripts published in the book
ALIEN INTERVIEW, large numbers of Immortal Spiritual Beings (IS-BEs)
were delivered to Earth beginning about 12,000 years ago, and continuously since that
time. Assuming that you were one of the original "prisoners" sentenced
to live on Earth, may could have already lived as many of 300 lifetimes
on Earth! (more or less, depending on when you arrived, how long each
body lived, how frequently you got a new body, etc.).
(All Halloweds' Day) is an observance and celebration of The Spirit of
Our Ancestors. Well, what if WE ARE our ancestors? According to the
principle of Reincarnation we are really honoring ourselves, and all of
the other Immortal Spiritual Beings who have inhabited, and continue to
inhabit and re-inhabit bodies on Earth. And, let's not forget the
multitude of Spiritual Beings who inhabit all Life Forms on Earth --
whales, porpoises, elephants, wolves and horses, for example. The
Spirits, who manifest themselves as Ghosts, Poltergeists, Demons,
Apparitions, Angels, Gods, and Disembodied Souls may very well be our
Brothers and Our Sisters.
Let's honor them with the reverence and dignity they deserve.

before. A cycle ago. I realized that the number of people in the world today is
made not only of souls of animals from their previous lifetimes and souls of humans
from previous lives – all the same souls, but wearing human body.
Souls from all over different places in time are gathered
here at this time. The man over there; he was last on the planet 200 years ago.
The woman over there, she was last on the planet 400 years ago. This is how it
Once, several years ago, I saw the hologram of tree’s. I had
been taking White powder Gold at the time, Ormus. The hologram of trees is the
lightbody pattern and it is five times bigger than the tree’s physical body.
Because we do not have 100% maximum nutrition therefore the physical world is
stunted. It decays at a faster rate than the lightbody pattern. We would be ten
feet tall if we achieved it, slender and elongated forms. CS Lewis used the
word Seroni to describe this in his book Out of the Silent Planet.
I spoke with my neighbour who told me that her mother would
be over a hundred years old by now. I remembered about how if we had optimum
100% health at all times we would live for a few hundred years. The body is a
lesser form than the ideal of the lightbody, the hologram.
The lightbody is closer connected to the soul. It is our
optimum form. Therefore the lightbody is set to live for several hundred years
although the physical body does not very often achieve this. After the physical
body has passed, the lightbody is still encoded into the reality grid. This is
what one form of ghosts are. Our lives are dealing with overlaps of the past.
The energy of the ancestors affects us, affects places. This can be attuned to
by the sensitive.
In the car I stared at my hands, five fingers, I am in human
form now. I woke up somewhat. I was a different form previously. It is the
grade 5 coffee awakening me to this, very clean java. I am not on Ormus now but
the frequency I am riding at this time has achieved this particular integration
Physical particles follow the form of the lightbody. As far
as the path of a life is concerned, the medicine journey, Ka, this is the weave
we activate as we pass through the grid. Particle physics attempt to grow
toward the perfect form of the holographic lightbody. All the world is made of
this, it is what holds it together. Because ‘mass = time’, the physics of the
material world are such that time is created by the flow of physical particles
attempting to achieve the lightbody form.
The souls repeat appear here because of resonance. Only when the internal dynamics of the souls own energy shifts to a different configuration, the harmonic changes it is no longer applicable to return to the frequency of the manifestation of 'now'; it may relocate to higher vibrational dimensions. The future is a higher vibrational dimension. This gives the illusion of linear progress as observed from within the physical/time based structure.
I bought a bottle of south Australian red wine today.
I don't drink often.
I drank (a small number) of bottles of whiskey,
when I had superbug alien man flu that lasted 8 weeks.
Before that I drank some cider when I was seeing friends this time last year.
Before that, several years of sobriety.
And before that,
a dream in which the pixies basically told me straight:
get off the booze and eat fish&fruit or I would be fucked up for good.
Before that I drank quite a lot of Morgans Spiced Rum as a method of soothing the desperate pains of giving up chain smoking spliffs for many long years. During which there was a phase of cider addiction when I was part of a music production obsessed street crew.

Ella: "what have the college said?" Joe:
"the college CBR check woman said they can't accept anybody on the
course until they do a CBR check although the course tutor says last
year they had a few who did late CBR checks and some of them were
allowed on the course even though they have something on their CBR. One
girl applied twice for CBR checks and nothing ever came back either
time, they still had her on the course too. Netmums.com is the best
resource on the internet for any info about this and it appears that it
is discretionary. The notion of 'pass or fail' a CBR check is a gray
area -discretionary- unless there's something really nasty shows up." Ella:
"we're in a catch 22 then because we can't pay for a CBR check until
the college accept you on the course. Also we need to do a separate CBR
check for every different place that you have work placement in which is

I put in a formal complaint about my Genesis officer, and her boss just rang to tell me they're fast-tracking me through the system, getting me work placement and fudging paperwork to cover missed deadlines. Wow!
The boss was nice she remembered I'd complained before so she took me seriously this time. I feel guilty for pressuring them. I mentioned neo-fem prejudice against males in my complaint and they've crapped themselves. It depends what my crb check says and if they play hardball back at me about it, since it is discretionary. Next issue is childcare for my son on the days I have him unless I can sort it with his mam somehow to alter our rosta.
Had a meeting with Genesis today and the bottom line is No, for er any excuse we can find and when that doesn't work its the other excuse.
They're going to pay my petrol to send me to carmarthen to do art therapy instead and say they'll fund me to do childcare next year.
If a group of men did this to a woman there would be an inquest. This is neo-feminism LOUD AND CLEAR men do NOT do childcare. The fact that there are equally as many women who are abusive as there are men is ignored because women are dominant, superior and in control.
It is a big social problem because when men act like women act, they go to jail. I have to teach my son to survive in the world he lives in which means being honest about the world we live in.
What happens in my experience is that the Brotherhood identifies the ringleader of the bitch pack and leaves her dying gratuitously as a warning to the rest of them; my ex's other ex is doing time for exactly that, it is how close I am to the male response to neo-fem manipulation in wales where I live.
Nobody wants that world, nobody.
At least I have an art project theme for my art therapy course now.
Highly executed art is preserved and promoted as social commentary for many generations especially when it creates powerful emotional response.
I had a meeting with genesis today, they are going to fund me to get involved with an art group in carmarthen for this year and then do the childcare course next year. Its really difficult for men to get into childcare. Its proved that women are equally as abusive as men but because women are controlling the industry they put men through hell.
We now live in a society where mens lib is necessary. Do you know the words mysandry or misogyny? Anyway... Possibly I won't be coming into the lessons again this year.
Well if men treated a woman this way there'd be an inquest. I know that if I go to the Welsh Assembly causing trouble for what is otherwise a really good entity in society, I'd end up sidelined and discredited so I have to play their game.
There's a reason for everything even if we don't know what it is at the time.
I'm back on the childcare course (again) this week at least. The abuser-disguised-as-inept-or-possibly-so-inept-it-appears-as-abusive woman is off my back :)smile
In class yesterday, teacher discussing Trust with regard to confidentiality. The syllabus says; "you trust an authority figure for example a doctor because of their profession." I spoke up; "I disagree! You trust because of intuition. Someone doing a job does not automatically qualify trust!'
I am having such trouble from the system because I am a man doing childcare. Extra red tape to put me off and delay until the deadline is gone.
So there in a room full of women being indoctrinated to act without thinking and to reinforce the system over common sense -it is a male who raises the point that trust is instinct, it is not a given. Class then woke up and talked about malpractise, networks of abuse inherent in the system eg: google holly graig, the difference between what the tv says about julian assange/wikileaks to what free media says about it, etc.
All the feminist material that women are intuitive and men are logical has just been proved to be a load of shit.
So there is a reason I am in the class, even if the women running the show don't want me to be there! The teacher herself is lovely she's a common sense supporter too.
Meeting with genesis; they are going to fund me to get involved with "arts for wellbeing" starting January instead so I have a better foundation in art therapy before they start me again on the childcare program next year.
This comes after 6 months of asking, why do I need to pay myself to do a light crb check when Genesis pay for a full crb mandatory to do childcare? Doing a light crb check is pointless and nobody else on the course (all women) had to do a light crb check first. Why am I so special?
I complained about my contact to her boss and her boss response was to ignore the complaint.
Now I have missed the deadlines for this year, however the boss did finally admit that asking me to do a light crb check was pointless and she can see my point.
I still have not received crb check results because now there is no need for them to be made, thus saving genesis 40quid.

Gaia is holistic.
Humans are tools of Gaia working to her agenda.
Life will continue with or without humanity, we are doing this to improve human life and at the same time to remove toxins from the skin of Gaia that she doesn't want there any more. In 1000 years from now it will be irrelevant how polluted we are today. It might seem far away but people are still banging on about the message of christ twice as long ago as that.
We are a blip, we are like ants incapable of comprehending the greater scheme or even that it is the will of the queen ant motivating our actions, because we see only trade, action, retail and increasingly, environmental consequence.
Only once we have filtered the toxin and it has become energy in the soil for the plants that do thrive in it, once the slime on the ocean floors have soaked up the contaminant so the right sort of bacteria can convert it, will this planet be cleaner than ever before. We have a messy dirty job to do but it is necessary.
Twenty-five generations from now - that is who we are working for. Our great-> descendants. Our children. Our Hope. Our future. And they will be tree herders and animal rearers. They will have technology that you and I cannot imagine nor believe in. They will have psychic abilities that we are only beginning to get a concept of. The future will be better, because of the dark age we are in, to create that world.
As soon as one volcano erupts through an oil field, you will understand why we extract oil as fast as we can.
Trust in Gaia, she has a better plan than we are aware of. And we are a part of it.
Nothing of our world will remain by 25 generations from now except for some art and some species preserved by ourselves. We will all be forgotten, facebook, internet will be obsolete by then. So; study transmigration and past life memory awakening.
It is more worthwhile than arguing against progress.

Reality is multi dimensional and this has been proved. What that means is that it is possible even for contradictory events to be simultaneously true. What happens when people start saying 'the agent of that reality is right while that one is wrong' is the critic, even with best intentions of sorting out their own opinion in the mess of conflicting information, exposes themself as a brainwasher attempting to persuade others to empower or disempower one version of reality over another by the power of belief.
There is a fundamental Truth of what really happened compared with the potentials and outright lies. Most sources nowadays are a blend of all 3 so while an agent is informative about point A they are disinformative about point B. Learning to sift the accurate data is a process of learning to recognise truth.
There is an ancient recognised science of truthsense. Because Truth is an absolute, it has a different quality to untruth that is recognisable by those who know how to identify and 'read' those qualities. Focus on 'being' the Truth by experiencing reality honestly is the natural training school for this ability. Shills and confused individuals and groups are easy to spot when you know how to read truth. It is particle physics, it is embedded into the energy fields of the participants.
High level people with advanced spiritual abilities are able to see and feel the data from a persons aura without requiring words, much like a dog can sniff a cancer. If you do not believe such people exist and such levels of reality exist, you need to study spiritual development. Only when you have one major breakthrough eg; witness telekinesis can you be able to start believing in the more liberated potentials for how some people are exploring reality, and the conspiracies surrounding this.
There is now a hard science established that we generate reality using belief. Once having accepted that, everything opens up. People who require control and repression close down the open-realities in the people around them and thus cannot experience it until they change. That is why mind control is such a massive industry on this planet. We are all affected by it to varying amounts.

I am a man coming to terms with the world which is to say I'm coming to terms with myself. The unification process of governance into two hemispheres; china and the west. We're trying to comprehend it based on limited knowledge.
I don't believe the right reaction is to shout abuse at them and try to stop them. They're doing it. We can't change it so we have to accept. To comprehend from their point of view why they are doing it. Why they think its the right thing. Is it a runaway train or is it for the higher good?
They're not doing it because they want to kill us all.
If they wanted to kill us all they'd kill us all.
We don't want to lose regional traditional customs in favour of corporate monoculture. What are we trying to preserve? What survives to be passed between generations is the culture in transition, the process of change is the culture.
Do we really want to hold on to all that hatred and teach our kids by example that is how we should be?

In a book on buddhism I have been reading, the word "prana" is translated as "instinct".
Prana is usually defined as chi, which means 'life force energy'.
It is all so much simpler to understand that prana, instinct and 'the force' are all the same thing! The Flow is a better word for it than the Force.
A good jedi works with the force. A dark jedi misuses the force; questions, separates self from prana, uses mind instead of instinct to make decisions.
This is the human problem; the divorce from nature. As animals we flow with the truth, and why question it? Humans questioned it, our mind split and we separated from instinct. An evolutionary leap into a different perceptual dimension.
Yaqui sorcerers claim this happened when our species was invaded by extra-dimensional entities that we describe as 'reptilians' so they can use us as host bodies to come through into our world.

Unfair bank? A new set of rules to help you sue
Money Talk by Marc Gander Consumer Action Group
12 September 2012
For the past three years, bank customers in the UK have had an excellent set of legal powers to tackle their banks if they think they have been treated unfairly.
Unfortunately, hardly anyone knows about them, and the relevant authorities have failed to give the powers any meaningful publicity.
The rules were been laid down by the Financial Services Authority (FSA).
They are known as the Banking: Conduct of Business sourcebook (BCOBS) and they apply to small businesses as well as to private individuals.
Most significantly, they give any aggrieved customer the right to sue their bank in the county court.
This may not obvious to the first-time reader, but it is spelt out right at the bottom of the document in Schedule 5.
This explicitly links breaches of these rules to the right of individuals to take legal action under section 150 of Financial Services and Markets Act.
What is unfair?
Under BCOBS, your bank has a duty to operate your current account so the consequences are not unfair to you.
Your bank cannot just go ahead and apply your contracthttp://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=3859674681412731052#editor/target=post;postID=8725094523221245812ual terms regardless of the consequences.
It is obliged to have regards to your interests, when making decisions.
Your bank may want to say they are only obliged to treat you fairly within the limits of the account contract.
However, fair treatment under BCOBS means you are entitled to receive fair treatment despite the limits of the contract (otherwise BCOBS would be rendered completely ineffective by the bank's terms and conditions).
If you discuss your bank's treatment of you calmly with a group of friends or colleagues and the general feeling is you have been treated unfairly, then the chances are you have been.
Unfairness depends on the circumstances.
British judges have been deciding what is reasonable or unfair for hundreds of years so it does not pose much of a problem for them.
Here are a few common examples of treatment likely to be unfair, although none of these have been tested in court yet.
They are drawn from examples discussed on the Consumer Action Group website.
* You or your business have been a long-standing customer of your bank and have kept your affairs generally in order. You suddenly receive a demand for repayment of the overdraft you have depended upon for some time. There is no apparent reason why this demand should have been made, but the bank says they are allowed to do this because of the contract.
* Your bank has refused to allow you to have a "planned" overdraft because of your poor circumstances. However when a forgotten direct debit pushes you over the edge, the bank allows you to have an "unplanned overdraft" and you start incurring charges at a higher rate that plunge you into a spiral of debt.
* Your bank blocks payment of cheques or direct debits and starts adding charges to your account even though you have received no discernible benefit or service from the bank.
* Your bank refuses to discuss your circumstances with you when you fall into hardship.
* Your bank takes your benefits money to pay charges or other bank debts even though you have made it clear you are on benefits and have priority commitments such as food and rent or clothes for your children.
* Your bank's computer systems suffer a glitch that means certain bills such as gas or loan repayments are not paid automatically or a house purchase cannot be completed. As a result you incur charges from other companies, or your credit file is marked by other companies. Your bank refuses to take steps to remedy this damage or to compensate you for the time and inconvenience and stress incurred sorting out the mess.
* You are suffering hardship and you enter into an agreement to repay a debt in regular instalments. Although you never miss a payment and your difficult circumstances haven't changed, your bank for no reason suddenly insists on a higher rate of instalment or complete repayment of the debt. Your bank's demand is likely to plunge you into greater difficulty because either you cannot afford to comply or else if you do, you will be unable to keep up payments to other creditors who have accepted similar repayment schemes.
Having a go
County court small claims are quick, easy, effective and cheap, although you will forfeit your court fee if you lose.
The simplest way for an ordinary individual to bring an action based on BCOBS is to allege that the BCOBS requirements form part of your current account contract (which they do) and that by breaching BCOBS, your bank has committed a breach of contract (which it has).
Keep your claim for compensation modest.
The key is to obtain a judgement in which the judge agrees your bank has breached its statutory duty.
A modest claim, say for £100 or £200, will mean that you risk a much smaller claims fee if you lose.
A county court judgement on the basis of a BCOBS breach can have serious consequences for your bank.
If you win, your next step would be to send a copy of the court judgement to the Office of Fair Trading and the Financial Services Authority (FSA) as part of a formal complaint.
The FSA has the power to impose very serious sanctions on the banks if they breach the BCOBS rules.
Your bank would be very anxious for this not to happen, but this is the only way to start encouraging good behaviour from your bank.
It is hardly surprising that the British Banking Association's guide to BCOBS makes no mention whatsoever of this powerful consumer right.
Rather more surprising is that the FSA's own Know Your Rights guide makes no mention either.
The Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) website only makes passing references to BCOBS.
Under the previous Banking Code, it was the FOS which dealt with breaches of it.
I am doubtful about the ability of the FOS to apply the new rules.
According to the FOS, it seeks to achieve outcomes that are fair to both sides.
But BCOBS is much more one sided - in favour of customers - and requires fair treatment of bank customers in order to offset the inherent inequality in your bargaining-power.
As the FOS objectives do not seem to square very well with those laid out in BCOBS, I suggest you take the legal route in the county courts if you have a legitimate complaint about unfair treatment by your bank.
