Electromagnetic Sensitivity

The woman who needs a veil of protection from modern life
By VICTORIA MOORE

Before knocking on Sarah Dacre's door, I take the precaution of checking my mobile phone. It's switched off, as she has requested.

"Last time someone came to visit," she warns, "I started feeling awfully nauseous. It turned out he had a picture phone with him and had left it switched on. A picture phone!"


She pauses, looking genuinely horrified. Apparently, this type of mobile automatically sends signals to a local base station every nine minutes - "No wonder I felt so sick."

We sit down in the living-room of the airy, north London house that, for the past two years, has been Sarah's refuge from modern life. Save for the absence of a television, it looks ordinary enough.

But beneath the coats of magnolia paint, she points out, the walls are lined with a special paper that contains a layer of tin-foil; and upstairs, the windows are hung with a fine, silvery gauze.

These aren't idiosyncratic decorating decisions, though. All these silvery layers are here for a purpose: to keep the 21st century at bay.

Sarah, 51, is one of a growing band of people who claim to be experiencing extreme - and incapacitating - sensitivity to electrical appliances, as well as to certain frequencies of electromagnetic waves.

"Wi-Fi, or wireless broadband networks, seem to be the worst thing," she says.

"Closely followed by mobile phones - particularly if they're being used in an enclosed space - the base stations of cordless telephones and mobile phone masts.

"I have to restrict the amount of time I spend on the computer or watching television, and make sure I don't have too many household appliances on at once, because that sets me off as well."

This may sound bizarre, but there is no doubt that Sarah's symptoms are real.

To date, they include hair loss, sickness, high blood-pressure, digestive and memory problems, severe headaches and dizziness.

They strike with such ferocity that, since diagnosing herself as "electrically sensitive" in May 2005, she has been marooned at home.

She can't work. When she wants to phone friends, she has to use a land-line - a significant advancement, it turns out, because she was so ill at one stage, she says, that she couldn't even touch an ordinary receiver without feeling a violent shock pass up her arm.

Food shopping is done as rapidly as possible, once a week, at a time carefully chosen to avoid younger people and their permanently switched-on mobile phones.

And she can venture into built-up areas only if she is swathed in a net-and-hat ensemble made from a special "shielding fabric" that makes her look like a bee-keeper.

"I'm sure people laugh," she says, "but I don't mind as long as it keeps me well."

Finding her own solutions - however outwardly bizarre - has been essential because, for the moment at least, the medical establishment does not even accept that her condition exists.

Fortunately, some individual doctors have been sympathetic to her plight.

Dr Sarah Myhill, who is registered with the General Medical Council and practises privately in Wales, says: "There is no doubt that electrical sensitivity is a real phenomenon - I have seen too many people affected by electro-magnetic radiation (EMR) to think otherwise.

"Clinically, I nearly always see electrical sensitivity in people who are already suffering from chemical sensitivity.

"There are many symptoms that can be switched on by electrical sensitivity, and it appears that almost any electro-magnetic frequency can be the cause."

Even so, I cannot help feeling a little sceptical. Is there any suggestion that ES could be a psychosomatic illness, I ask Sarah (who, in fairness, does not seem to be particularly highly-strung).

"Inevitably, people suggest that," she says, with a flick of her auburn, Farrah Fawcett-style hair.

"But at one time, ME sufferers were accused of having psychosomatic symptoms and were ignored as a result. Now, the illness is formally recognised.

"Before this, I'd barely had a day ill in my life - I've always been a very energetic, dynamic person.

"I had a career in banking, then in events management, and then I ran my own television production company.

I was always busy and I was always out doing things - skiing, tango lessons, looking after my son, Josh, who's now 17. I had a very active life and I loved it.

"Now, I have no income because I can't work and I have no choice but to devote all my energies to fighting to find out more about my allergies."

The first symptoms started about five years ago. At first, Sarah ignored them, hoping they might be due to tiredness or stress and would simply go away.

Gradually, though, her condition deteriorated. And about two years ago, she says "everything hit at once, like a car crash. As well as the exhaustion and nausea, I even lost the sight in my right eye."

A stream of doctors, complementary practitioners and Chinese herbalists all failed to alleviate any of her symptoms or come up with a diagnosis.

Instead, she found an answer on Google - through websites such as electrosensitivity.org.uk.

All her symptoms seemed to match those of people who believe they are allergic to modern life.

She lists some of the offending items that were in her home: "I had a burglar alarm emitting microwave radiation, I used a mobile phone constantly, I had two cordless phones and countless appliances - all of which have an electromagnetic field associated with them."

Convinced that she had almost certainly found the cause of her illness, she ordered, from the internet, some special rolls of foil wallpaper and a fabric called Swiss bobbinet - a netting made from polyester filaments dipped in silver.

Both promised to "shield" her from any emissions from phone masts or wireless broadband systems.

Within a few weeks of the wallpaper going up and the windows being hung with netting, she began to feel better.

So much so that when she suddenly had an offer on her house, which she had been desperate to sell for seven months, she decided not to sell after all.

Since then, she has gradually managed to find other ways to help her cope.

She can use her computer for up to three hours a day, "but only if I keep myself absolutely detoxed all the time, drinking plenty of water and revolving my meals so that I don't become sensitive to certain types of food as well."

Her long-term (some would say long-suffering) boyfriend, Rod, a gold and silversmith who lives in Kent, has been sympathetic, she says. But there have been unexpected setbacks that might test the happiest of couples.

Last month, she had a relapse and started to panic.

"I'd been feeling quite bright and energetic; then suddenly, for three nights, I couldn't sleep," she says.

"I really felt it was back to how it was in the beginning, when I didn't know what was wrong with me. I was exhausted, developed bladder problems, felt ill. That's when I decided to run some tests."

Using an "electrosmog detector" - the name given to a device that can apparently register levels of electromagnetic activity - she checked her bedroom.

"And there was radiation streaming in through the one wall that I thought I hadn't needed to protect. We have some new neighbours, and I think they must have installed wireless broadband."

To ensure a good night's sleep, Sarah now takes the precaution of swathing herself in her special silver netting.

She is concerned by the increasing spread of wireless networks.

"I think it's a terrible mistake," she says. "Is Wi-Fi going to turn out to be the tobacco, asbestos or Thalidomide of the 21st century? It's looking that way.

"And instead of testing it out properly, what are we doing? We're putting it into schools, exposing small children to it all day long, and opening up entire Wi-Fi areas - they've just created a giant new Wi-Fi zone in the City of London.

"It horrifies me to think of people in small houses or flats who might be affected by several overlapping wireless networks at once."

Yet the scientific case for electrosensitivity (ES) is threadbare. The World Health Organisation's position is that "there is no scientific basis to link ES symptoms to EMR exposure.

"Further, ES is not a medical diagnosis, nor is it clear that it represents a single medical problem."

This week, Professor David Coggan, a member of the Health Protection Agency's advisory group on non-ionising radiation, told BBC's Newsnight: "There is quite a lot of evidence now accumulated on mobile phones and health - and the balance of evidence overall doesn't point to problems.

"There's still uncertainty and there still needs to be further research, but so far we don't have a concern.

"And on that basis, the concern about Wi-Fi is much lower on the scale than, say, that about pan-global influenza."

Other research has backed the view of the medical and scientific establishment.

In one "provocation" study, a number of people who claimed to have electrical sensitivity were placed in a room with a mobile phone and not told whether or not it was switched on.

Asked by a researcher how they felt, they failed to establish any link between physical symptoms and the alleged trigger.

Sarah Dacre believes that this is because the tests were carried out in an area with high background electrosmog.

"Once you are sensitised," she says, "that's it.

"It's like having a glass of wine - it's cumulative in your system.

"You don't stop being drunk once you have finished drinking, so you can't then be tested sober."

She continues to campaign for electrosensitivity to be recognised as a valid medical complaint linked to electromagnetic fields.

"While I'm up and about," she says a little sadly, "I'm going to do something about it."

Project Camelot Interviews Michael St Clair

Project Camelot interviews Michael St Clair

Zen of Stars: Michael St Clair, Futurist and Visionary

A video interview with Michael St Clair

Montreux, Switzerland, September 2006: ... all » Project Camelot had the great plasure to interview Michael St Clair, a reknowned futurist and visionary at the magical Chateau de Chillon in Montreux. St Clair has written a book called ZEN OF STARS that addresses the transformations and earth changes which are coming in the next few years.

As he says, "We are psychic beings inhabiting a physical reality." He is a synthesizer who covers areas as diverse as astrology, astronomy, cosmology and the evolution of the human soul. Inspired by the work of Krishnamurti, he talks about the future of the planet Earth and our growing awareness that is launching us into an enlightened view of the merging of the realities.

His work centers around the notion of the growth of small communities and safe places where those who wish to ride out the coming years can live true to their ideals while maintaining the calm necessary to be ports of shelter to those around us.

Black Box Predicts Future

DEEP in the basement of a dusty university library in Edinburgh lies a small black box, roughly the size of two cigarette packets side by side, that churns out random numbers in an endless stream.

At first glance it is an unremarkable piece of equipment. Encased in metal, it contains at its heart a microchip no more complex than the ones found in modern pocket calculators.

But, according to a growing band of top scientists, this box has quite extraordinary powers. It is, they claim, the 'eye' of a machine that appears capable of peering into the future and predicting major world events.

The machine apparently sensed the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Centre four hours before they happened - but in the fevered mood of conspiracy theories of the time, the claims were swiftly knocked back by sceptics. But last December, it also appeared to forewarn of the Asian tsunami just before the deep sea earthquake that precipitated the epic tragedy.

Now, even the doubters are acknowledging that here is a small box with apparently inexplicable powers.

'It's Earth-shattering stuff,' says Dr Roger Nelson, emeritus researcher at Princeton University in the United States, who is heading the research project behind the 'black box' phenomenon.

'We're very early on in the process of trying to figure out what's going on here. At the moment we're stabbing in the dark.' Dr Nelson's investigations, called the Global Consciousness Project, were originally hosted by Princeton University and are centred on one of the most extraordinary experiments of all time. Its aim is to detect whether all of humanity shares a single subconscious mind that we can all tap into without realising.

And machines like the Edinburgh black box have thrown up a tantalising possibility: that scientists may have unwittingly discovered a way of predicting the future.

Although many would consider the project's aims to be little more than fools' gold, it has still attracted a roster of 75 respected scientists from 41 different nations. Researchers from Princeton - where Einstein spent much of his career - work alongside scientists from universities in Britain, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Germany. The project is also the most rigorous and longest-running investigation ever into the potential powers of the paranormal.

'Very often paranormal phenomena evaporate if you study them for long enough,' says physicist Dick Bierman of the University of Amsterdam. 'But this is not happening with the Global Consciousness Project. The effect is real. The only dispute is about what it means.' The project has its roots in the extraordinary work of Professor Robert Jahn of Princeton University during the late 1970s. He was one of the first modern scientists to take paranormal phenomena seriously. Intrigued by such things as telepathy, telekinesis - the supposed psychic power to move objects without the use of physical force - and extrasensory perception, he was determined to study the phenomena using the most up-to-date technology available.

One of these new technologies was a humble-looking black box known was a Random Event Generator (REG). This used computer technology to generate two numbers - a one and a zero - in a totally random sequence, rather like an electronic coin-flipper.

The pattern of ones and noughts - 'heads' and 'tails' as it were - could then be printed out as a graph. The laws of chance dictate that the generators should churn out equal numbers of ones and zeros - which would be represented by a nearly flat line on the graph. Any deviation from this equal number shows up as a gently rising curve.

During the late 1970s, Prof Jahn decided to investigate whether the power of human thought alone could interfere in some way with the machine's usual readings. He hauled strangers off the street and asked them to concentrate their minds on his number generator. In effect, he was asking them to try to make it flip more heads than tails.

It was a preposterous idea at the time. The results, however, were stunning and have never been satisfactorily explained.

Again and again, entirely ordinary people proved that their minds could influence the machine and produce significant fluctuations on the graph, 'forcing it' to produce unequal numbers of 'heads' or 'tails'.

According to all of the known laws of science, this should not have happened - but it did. And it kept on happening.

Dr Nelson, also working at Princeton University, then extended Prof Jahn's work by taking random number machines to group meditations, which were very popular in America at the time. Again, the results were eyepopping. The groups were collectively able to cause dramatic shifts in the patterns of numbers.

From then on, Dr Nelson was hooked.

Using the internet, he connected up 40 random event generators from all over the world to his laboratory computer in Princeton. These ran constantly, day in day out, generating millions of different pieces of data. Most of the time, the resulting graph on his computer looked more or less like a flat line.

But then on September 6, 1997, something quite extraordinary happened: the graph shot upwards, recording a sudden and massive shift in the number sequence as his machines around the world started reporting huge deviations from the norm. The day was of historic importance for another reason, too.

For it was the same day that an estimated one billion people around the world watched the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales at Westminster Abbey.

Dr Nelson was convinced that the two events must be related in some way.

Could he have detected a totally new phenomena? Could the concentrated emotional outpouring of millions of people be able to influence the output of his REGs. If so, how?

Dr Nelson was at a loss to explain it.

So, in 1998, he gathered together scientists from all over the world to analyse his findings. They, too, were stumped and resolved to extend and deepen the work of Prof Jahn and Dr Nelson. The Global Consciousness Project was born.

Since then, the project has expanded massively. A total of 65 Eggs (as the generators have been named) in 41 countries have now been recruited to act as the 'eyes' of the project.

And the results have been startling and inexplicable in equal measure.

For during the course of the experiment, the Eggs have 'sensed' a whole series of major world events as they were happening, from the Nato bombing of Yugoslavia to the Kursk submarine tragedy to America's hung election of 2000.

The Eggs also regularly detect huge global celebrations, such as New Year's Eve.

But the project threw up its greatest enigma on September 11, 2001.

As the world stood still and watched the horror of the terrorist attacks unfold across New York, something strange was happening to the Eggs.

Not only had they registered the attacks as they actually happened, but the characteristic shift in the pattern of numbers had begun four hours before the two planes even hit the Twin Towers.

They had, it appeared, detected that an event of historic importance was about to take place before the terrorists had even boarded their fateful flights. The implications, not least for the West's security services who constantly monitor electronic 'chatter', are clearly enormous.

'I knew then that we had a great deal of work ahead of us,' says Dr Nelson.

What could be happening? Was it a freak occurrence, perhaps?

Apparently not. For in the closing weeks of December last year, the machines went wild once more.

Twenty-four hours later, an earthquake deep beneath the Indian Ocean triggered the tsunami which devastated South-East Asia, and claimed the lives of an estimated quarter of a million people.

So could the Global Consciousness Project really be forecasting the future?

Cynics will quite rightly point out that there is always some global event that could be used to 'explain' the times when the Egg machines behaved erratically. After all, our world is full of wars, disasters and terrorist outrages, as well as the occasional global celebration. Are the scientists simply trying too hard to detect patterns in their raw data?

The team behind the project insist not. They claim that by using rigorous scientific techniques and powerful mathematics it is possible to exclude any such random connections.

'We're perfectly willing to discover that we've made mistakes,' says Dr Nelson. 'But we haven't been able to find any, and neither has anyone else.

Our data shows clearly that the chances of getting these results by fluke are one million to one against.

That's hugely significant.' But many remain sceptical.

Professor Chris French, a psychologist and noted sceptic at Goldsmiths College in London, says: 'The Global Consciousness Project has generated some very intriguing results that cannot be readily dismissed. I'm involved in similar work to see if we get the same results. We haven't managed to do so yet but it's only an early experiment. The jury's still out.' Strange as it may seem, though, there's nothing in the laws of physics that precludes the possibility of foreseeing the future.

It is possible - in theory - that time may not just move forwards but backwards, too. And if time ebbs and flows like the tides in the sea, it might just be possible to foretell major world events. We would, in effect, be 'remembering' things that had taken place in our future.

'There's plenty of evidence that time may run backwards,' says Prof Bierman at the University of Amsterdam.

'And if it's possible for it to happen in physics, then it can happen in our minds, too.' In other words, Prof Bierman believes that we are all capable of looking into the future, if only we could tap into the hidden power of our minds. And there is a tantalising body of evidence to support this theory.

Dr John Hartwell, working at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands, was the first to uncover evidence that people could sense the future. In the mid-1970s he hooked people up to hospital scanning machines so that he could study their brainwave patterns.

He began by showing them a sequence of provocative cartoon drawings.

When the pictures were shown, the machines registered the subject's brainwaves as they reacted strongly to the images before them. This was to be expected.

Far less easy to explain was the fact that in many cases, these dramatic patterns began to register a few seconds before each of the pictures were even flashed up.

It was as though Dr Hartwell's case studies were somehow seeing into the future, and detecting when the next shocking image would be shown next.

It was extraordinary - and seemingly inexplicable.

But it was to be another 15 years before anyone else took Dr Hartwell's work further when Dean Radin, a researcher working in America, connected people up to a machine that measured their skin's resistance to electricity. This is known to fluctuate in tandem with our moods - indeed, it's this principle that underlies many lie detectors.

Radin repeated Dr Hartwell's 'image response' experiments while measuring skin resistance. Again, people began reacting a few seconds before they were shown the provocative pictures. This was clearly impossible, or so he thought, so he kept on repeating the experiments. And he kept getting the same results.

'I didn't believe it either,' says Prof Bierman. 'So I also repeated the experiment myself and got the same results. I was shocked. After this I started to think more deeply about the nature of time.' To make matters even more intriguing, Prof Bierman says that other mainstream labs have now produced similar results but are yet to go public.

'They don't want to be ridiculed so they won't release their findings,' he says. 'So I'm trying to persuade all of them to release their results at the same time. That would at least spread the ridicule a little more thinly!' If Prof Bierman is right, though, then the experiments are no laughing matter.

They might help provide a solid scientific grounding for such strange phenomena as 'deja vu', intuition and a host of other curiosities that we have all experienced from time to time.

They may also open up a far more interesting possibility - that one day we might be able to enhance psychic powers using machines that can 'tune in' to our subconscious mind, machines like the little black box in Edinburgh.

Just as we have built mechanical engines to replace muscle power, could we one day build a device to enhance and interpret our hidden psychic abilities?

Dr Nelson is optimistic - but not for the short term. 'We may be able to predict that a major world event is going to happen. But we won't know exactly what will happen or where it's going to happen,' he says.

'Put it this way - we haven't yet got a machine we could sell to the CIA.'

But for Dr Nelson, talk of such psychic machines - with the potential to detect global catastrophes or terrorist outrages - is of far less importance than the implications of his work in terms of the human race.

For what his experiments appear to demonstrate is that while we may all operate as individuals, we also appear to share something far, far greater - a global consciousness. Some might call it the mind of God.

'We're taught to be individualistic monsters,' he says. 'We're driven by society to separate ourselves from each other. That's not right.

We may be connected together far more intimately than we realise.'

Health Freedom On Verge Of Collapse

US HEALTH FREEDOM ON VERGE OF COLLAPSE

By Byron J. Richards, CCN
April 25, 2007
NewsWithViews.com

A new attack against health freedom, drug safety, and dietary supplements was launched last week by Senator Edward Kennedy (D-MA) with major support from Michael Enzi (R-WY). It is called the Food and Drug Administration Revitalization Act (S1082). This legislation was planned over the past few years working hand-in-glove with the FDA's dysfunctional management and legal team – meaning this legislation was written for the profits of Big Pharma and Big Biotech AT THE EXPENSE OF SAFETY AND HUMAN HEALTH.

S1082 is a Trojan Horse bill that pretends to address safety issues. Unbelievably, the bill turns the FDA into a drug development company that will expose Americans to new and dangerous biological drugs that have little testing to prove safety or effectiveness. And to top it off, the bill gives broad new regulatory powers to the FDA that can be used to frivolously attack dietary supplements and forward the FDA management's anti-American globalization agenda.

On April 18, 2007, S1082 was approved by the HELP committee (which Kennedy and Enzi control) and now moves to the floor of the Senate. In a slick move, Kennedy has attached his long-planned FDA/Big Pharma "reform" measures to the renewal of PDUFA (Prescription Drug User Fee Act). Current PDUFA law expires later this year and must be reviewed by Congress. PDUFA allows Big Pharma to pay the FDA fees to speed the approval of its drugs. The new Kennedy bill will increase these FDA bribes to 380 million dollars in 2008, well over 50% of the FDA budget for new drug approvals. This is like paying the mob for protection. Kennedy, by replacing the existing PDUFA law with this new bill (S1082), is ensuring that his twisted legislation is the one that will be put before the Senate for a vote.

The FDA Drug Company, an Agency with New Regulatory Power

It is hard for anyone to comprehend that the agency that is supposed to be in charge of drug safety is about to become a drug company. It is astonishing that the FDA will now manage a full scale business activity that uses a "non profit" foundation as a shield to avoid international patent problems, protect proprietary rights of its commercial drug-development enterprise, and massively expands FDA regulatory powers to quickly remove anything from the market that is competition to its own products and licensing agreements.

This new FDA business enterprise is called the Reagan-Udall Foundation for the Food and Drug Administration (see pages 105-125). In previous versions of the Kennedy bill it was going to be an independent drug company within the FDA (the Reagan-Udall Institute for Applied Biomedical Research). In the current bill it is a "non profit" collaboration of the FDA, private industry, government funding, and private funding. It is run directly by the FDA even though it pretends to not be part of the government. Under this scam taxpayers will foot the bill for drug development and then be charged outrageous prices for the drugs. Furthermore, the new bill seeks to allow a massive expanse of FDA regulatory power through this new foundation. For example, on pages 106-107 the bill states:

"The purpose of the Foundation is to advance the mission of the Food and Drug Administration to modernize medical, veterinary, food, food ingredient, and cosmetic product development, accelerate innovation, and enhance product safety….The Foundation shall [take] into consideration the Critical Path reports and priorities published by the Food and Drug Administration, identify unmet needs in the development, manufacture, and evaluation of the safety and effectiveness, including post approval, of devices, including diagnostics, biologics, and drugs, and the safety of food, food ingredients, and cosmetics."

Through this foundation the FDA is seeking broad new regulatory power that it currently does not possess. This will include the authority to attack any dietary supplement (which are food ingredients) as unsafe based on its use of "Critical Path" technology. This means the FDA will use proteomics (the advanced study of proteins in biological systems) to assess changes in biomarkers (the change in the state of a protein at the molecular level) in order to establish whatever it wants to consider as a risk. The FDA can slant this technology, based on their own personal opinions, to make anything they want appear as a risk – including your favorite dietary supplements that you use to stay healthy.

Deceiving the Public

This new bill panders to concerns of Americans regarding the safety of drugs. This legitimate worry is used by Kennedy and Enzi to garner support when in reality the bill does just the opposite - exposing Americans to almost unfathomable new drug risks and dangers while simultaneously making it possible to remove super safe, therapeutic, and helpful dietary supplements. The entire Critical Path initiative is a plan to race new and untested powerful biological drugs onto the market and experiment on patients all over the country – throwing caution to the wind as far as drug safety is concerned.

While S1082 also pretends to address the issues of drug safety, in reality all the needed Big Pharma loopholes are firmly in place. Additionally, the establishment of a clinical trial database as written in this proposed law will enable Big Pharma to hide experimental and undesirable side effects. Instead of full disclosure we will have a sterilized clinical trial database that will have the net effect of being used as a tool by Big Pharma to promote off label use of drugs. This is a far cry from disclosure that results in safety.

In response to the Kennedy con Charles Grassley (R-IA) immediately attacked the legislation on the floor of the Senate:

"The bill [S1802] does not address the outstanding critical problem that the office responsible for post-market drug safety lacks the independence, lacks the authority to promptly identify serious health risks and take necessary steps that will protect the public. As I think we all agree, the FDA is in desperate need of major overhaul."

The problem for Grassley, and all Americans, is that his true safety reform measures for the FDA are being held hostage by the HELP committee which is under the control of Kennedy and Enzi. His proposed legislation is S. 468: Food and Drug Administration Safety Act of 2007 and S. 467: Fair Access to Clinical Trials Act of 2007. As Grassley told the Senate:

"Let me be clear: Big Pharma does not like these bills. FDA management does not like these bills. Lobbyists are spending hours upon hours lobbying against these bills…What is wrong with establishing a separate center within the FDA--not outside the FDA, within the FDA--with its only job being that of a watchdog for those drugs already in the market?...What is wrong with supporting a clinical trial registry and results database that also requires sponsors to reveal their negative trials?...I propose there is nothing wrong with any of these proposals."

The situation is rather grave for all Americans. Kennedy has attached repressive legislation to replace the PDUFA funding thereby ensuring that his agenda will come before the Senate for a vote. The only real opposition to the legislation is coming from Grassley, who is attacking the weakness in FDA reform regarding drug safety and clinical trials. An even greater threat to the public – turning the FDA into a drug company and creating new regulatory powers that can be used to attack dietary supplements and remove them from the market – is being ignored by everyone – until now. Kennedy knows he can defeat Grassley and keep Grassley's bills from ever seeing the light of day. Can Kennedy defeat the American public? Solving this problem is up to you.

The Secret FDA Agenda – Government Against the People

The FDA is a puppet organization. Its management is a revolving door with Big Pharma, Big Biotech, and Big Agriculture. The behavior of its management team, set by its current leader Andrew von Eschenbach – but fully entrenched in its long and ugly history, is one of acting as a police-force bully to forward the profits of those with money and stamp out all competition (under the false guise of consumer protection). The FDA management fully believes it is above any law that is in its way or any attempt at Congressional oversight. It gives lip service to its safety mission. It is a cult unto itself.

The anti-American FDA is actively seeking to undermine U.S. laws and harmonize our dietary supplement laws with Mexico and Canada. This is being done through the Trilateral Cooperation Charter – an illegal agreement set up with health regulatory agencies in Mexico and Canada. It is part of the campaign towards a North American Union, one which would be a catastrophe for health freedom in this country as dietary supplement laws in Canada and Mexico are far more restrictive than in the U.S.

The FDA would also like to harmonize our dietary supplement laws with the evolving international standards set by Codex, thus branding therapeutic nutrition as dangerous and risky and needing to be sold by Big Pharma or removed from the market altogether (if it competes with a blockbuster category of drugs). Codex is planning to use the same proteomics and biomarker technology that will be used by the FDA's Critical Path Initiative to remove therapeutic dietary supplements from the international market and force their policies on America, thereby superseding the sovereignty of American law on threat of trade sanctions. The FDA fully supports draconian Codex guidelines to regulate dietary supplements and is working with the Germans to concoct technology to brand nutrients as drugs. The FDA management is as bad as any government agency can get. Under the leadership of Andrew von Eschenbach it has plummeted to an all time low.

What You Can Do

1) Call, fax, phone, and write your Senators and tell them you are opposed to bill S1082 - Food and Drug Administration Revitalization Act. Tell them you want no legislation of any kind that will enable the FDA to frivolously attack dietary supplements. Tell them you do not want Big Pharma funding the FDA with user fees for drug approvals. Demand an independent office within the FDA to monitor drug safety. And tell them you want full disclosure by Big Pharma of all their clinical trials. Tell them you support the Grassley legislation (S467 and S468) which offers true reform of the FDA.
2) Tell your Senators you are completely opposed to any law that would enable the FDA to act as a drug company, such as S1082, which is proposing the formation of the Reagan-Udall Foundation for the FDA.
3) Sign this petition demanding congressional oversight of the FDA's Trilateral Cooperation Charter – a key point the FDA is using to illegally support the formation of the North American Union while at the same time undermining health freedom. This is the FDA's front line attack that undermines American law and seeks to harmonize us with the laws of other countries. We must win this battle to stop Codex and preserve our health freedom – including access to therapeutic dietary supplements and all alternative health options.

If S1082 becomes law and the FDA is allowed to enter relationships with foreign countries without any Congressional mandate or oversight we can kiss health freedom goodbye – as well as our dietary supplements. It is time for dietary supplement companies and trade groups to get their heads out of the sand and quit jockeying for position in the New World Order at the expense of the future well being of their own customers.

The issue of health freedom is an issue for all Americans who believe in our constitution and our founding documents. America is the last bastion of health freedom on earth. If we fall, the world will be plunged into a Dark Ages of health. Our future health will be dictated by a multinational sickness industry driven by profits for drug and biologic companies with little to do with real quality of health. This is a crossroads – a moment in time. Health freedom is fundamental to all other freedoms as without health freedom the minds and bodies of a population are easy to control.

Biomind Superpowers

With regards to activating the pineal gland by using a bar magnet, north pole end towards the third eye for a few minutes each day.

Renowned remote viewer and Stargate veteran, Ingo Swann, writes of his experience in ´Psychic Sexuality", an excellent read that looks into the sexual force as a very powerful, creative energy. Swann goes into detail about ´orgone´, the ´odic force´ and various other forms of this force.

Swann also points out, not in so many words, that this sexual force is extremely powerful, and is why we are constantly bombarded with exploitative sexual messages that serve to lock us into a lower state, rather than elevating and harnessing this power. (for an excellent read into the nature of power, see Swann´s "Secrets of Power Vol I-III).

After swann had used the copper wall room, his chackras were wide open, and he had incredible second sight, seeing all sorts of energetic forms, attatchments, you name it. One can purchase his books through his website, which is www.biomindsuperpowers.com.

Adverse Effects Of Fluoride On The Pineal Gland

International Fluoride Information Network

March 27, 2001

IFIN Bulletin #269: Fluoride and the pineal gland. Luke published.

Dear All,

The wheels of science grind very slowly. Finally, the first half of the work that was the subject of Jennifer Luke´s Ph.D. thesis; presentation in Bellingham, Washington (ISFR conference) in 1998 and a videotaped interview I had with her (see www.fluoridealert.org/videos.htm), has been published in Caries Research (see abstract below).

In my view this work is of enormous importance and could be (or should be) the scientific straw that breaks the camel´s back of fluoridation. Many of our subscribers are familiar with the details but let me repeat them here.

When Luke found out that the pineal gland - a little gland in the center of the brain, responsible for a very large range of regulating activities (it produces serotonin and melatonin) -was also a calcifying tissue, like the teeth and the bones, she hypothesized it would concentrate fluoride to very high levels. The gland is not protected by the blood brain barrier and has a very high perfusion rate of blood, second only to the kidney.

Luke had 11 cadavers analyzed in the UK. As she predicted she found astronomically high levels of fluoride in the calcium hydroxy apatite crystals produced by the gland. The average was 9000 ppm and went as high as 21,000 in one case. These levels are at, or higher, than fluoride levels in the bones of people suffering from skeletal fluorosis. It is these findings which have just been published.

It is the ramifications of these findings which have yet to be published. In the second half of her work she treated animals (Mongolian gerbils) with fluoride at a crack pineal gland research unit at the University of Surrey, UK (so there is no question about the quality of this work). She found that melatonin production (as measured by the concentration of a melatonin metabolite in the urine) was lower in the animals treated with high fluoride levels compared with those treated with low levels.

Luke hypothesizes that one of the four enzymes needed to convert the amino acid tryptophan (from the diet) into melatonin is being inhibited by fluoride. It could be one of the two enzymes which convert tryptophan to serotonin or one of the two which convert serotonin to melatonin.

Significance? Huge. Melatonin is reponsible for regulating all kinds of activities and there is a vast amount of work investigating its possible roles in aging, cancer and many other life processes. The one activity that Luke is particularly interested in is the onset of puberty. The highest levels of melatonin ( produced only at night) is generated in young children. It is thought that it is the fall of these melatonin levels which acts like a biological clock and triggers the onset of puberty. In her gerbil study she found that the high fluoride treated animals were reaching puberty earlier than the low fluoride ones.

We know from recent studies - and considerable press coverage - that young girls are reaching puberty earlier and earlier in the US. Luke is not saying that fluoride (or fluoridation) is the cause but her work waves a very worrying red flag. Fluoride´s role in earlier puberty needs more thorough investigation. Of an interesting historical note, in the Newburgh versus Kingston fluoridation trial (1945-1955), it was found that the girls in fluoridated Newburgh were reaching menstruation, on average, five months earlier than the girls in unfluoridated Kingston, but the result was not thought to be significant at the time (Schlessinger et al, 1956).

When one considers the seriousness of a possible interference by fluoride on a growing child´s pineal gland (and for that matter, elderly pineal glands) it underlines the recklessness of fluoridation. The precautionary principle would say, as would basic common sense, that you don´t take these kind of risks with our children for a benefit which, at best, amounts to 0.6 tooth surfaces out of 128 tooth surfaces in a child´s mouth (Brunelle and Carlos, 1990, Table 6).

I have a copy of Luke´s Ph.D. thesis and would be willing to share it with those who have a serious scientific interest in this issue. The other references cited above can be found in my Statement of Concern which is published on the FAN webpage: [link to www.fluoridealert.org]

Health Benefits Of Magnetic Fields

How Magnets Affect the Body

Although not exactly sure how, scientists believe that magnetic fields perturb the body's own magnetic energy, which, in turn, triggers more conventional biochemical and physiological mechanisms. Magnetic fields:

· Increase blood flow, bringing in more oxygen and nutrients, and flushing away waste products.

· Modulate calcium flow through the body, which is essential to many physiological processes. Magnetic fields can attract calcium ions to heal a broken bone or help move calcium away from painful arthritic joints.

· Alter the acidity or alkalinity of body fluids, which are often out of balance with illness;

· Affect hormone production (including those of the brain's all-important pineal gland), which initiates a cascade of biological effects.

· Alter enzyme activity and other biochemical processes, such as the production of ATP, a molecule that provides cellular fuel for the entire body.

· Stimulate electromagnetic energy flow through acupuncture meridians.

· Alter cell chromosome alignment.

Healing Applications

People have used magnetic therapy to treat many ailments. In Healing with Magnets, Gary Null provides an extensive list of not only these ailments but also supporting scientific studies (see Table). General uses include relief of pain and discomfort, reduction of inflammation, improved circulation, the ability to fight infections, reduction of stress, sleep promotion, correction of various central nervous system disorders, overall energy enhancement, acceleration of healing (especially bone fractures), and athletic performance enhancement.

Because paralysis aggravates many ailments amenable to magnetic therapy, it may be especially relevant for people with spinal cord dysfunction (SCD). Studies have shown that magnetic therapy is effective in controlling pain, enhancing circulation, promoting wound healing, reducing carpal tunnel syndrome, etc. (For specific ailments, review the listed resources.)

Pain

Pain is a societal problem of enormous proportions. For example, 80 % of Americans have severe back pain sometime in their lives, 40-million suffer from arthritic pain, and 40-million have recurrent headaches. Chronic pain alone costs the economy nearly $100 billion a year.

Painkilling drugs do not seem to be the answer. Their effectiveness is limited, the body builds up tolerance, and side effects hospitalize over 76,000 people each year.

Because of the need, pain has been the most emphasized magnetic-therapy application. Numerous studies support its efficacy.

Post-Polio Syndrome

One of the more scientifically rigorous of these studies focussed on the pain associated with post-polio syndrome (PPS) (see Vallbona, et al., Archives Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. November, 1997). As is frequently the situation with SCD, individuals with PPS experience pain for a variety of reasons, such as over-use injuries or joint and muscle inactivity.

This study used a double-blind design, the scientific "gold-standard" for showing effectiveness. The design eliminates the psychological placebo effect because neither physician nor subject knows who receives treatment or placebo control.

Physicians strapped either a small, low-intensity magnet or inactive magnet (placebo) to the most sensitive sore spots of 50 subjects with PPS, who were experiencing arthritic or muscle pain. Overall, 76% of the subjects who received the active magnet reported a decrease in pain. In contrast, only 19 % with an inactive magnet felt an improvement.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Magnetic fields also seem to relief MS symptoms. Several double-blind and many case studies suggest that pulsed electromagnetic fields can ease pain and spasticity and improve bladder control, cognitive function, fatigue level, mobility and vision in people with MS. (see Richards, et al., Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Clinics of North America, August, 1998).

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

Many people believe that electromagnetic energy will eventually play a paramount role in neuronal regeneration and restoring function after spinal cord injury. Animal studies indicate that pulsed electromagnetic fields stimulate both peripheral and spinal cord neuronal regeneration, as well as functional recovery.

These fields influence 1) calcium influx through the neuronal cell membrane, which affects essential cellular functions; and 2) levels of key nerve growth factors, which affect regeneration. Furthermore, studies suggest that magnetic fields alter the physical matrix of the tissue scar that forms after spinal cord injury in a way that is less inhibitory to neuronal re-growth.

Spinal cord injury clinical applications of magnetism are growing. For example, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is one of the best ways to visualize the brain and spinal cord. A technique called functional magnetic stimulation enhances urination and defecation, prevents deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) by inducing leg contractions, and increases respiratory and coughing capability. And pulsed electromagnetic energy accelerates pressure ulcer healing.

Finally, there are anecdotal reports of some function being restored in humans using magnetic therapy, which will be discussed in a future article (insert link).

Conclusion

It is predicted that electromagnetism will become the foundation of 21st century medicine or, at least, the mortar that integrates the biochemical concepts that have been so fundamental to the medicine of the last century. Already providing important clinical applications, as well as tantalizing insights into neuronal regeneration, as Paracelus said "Magnetism is the King of all Secrets."

Pineal Activation Using Magnet

While reading this book ( "The Science of Oneness", [link to ascension2000.com]

"Walter Rawls, who worked with the effects of monopolar magnetic fields on matter with the late Albert Roy Davis, told me in a telephone conversation of his experiments with a North pole magnet situated over the pineal gland.

A mask was made which held the North pole end of a long cylindrical magnet over the pineal gland. The purpose was to stimulate the gland and see if there was anything to this 'third eye' business. Exposure was in the range of 10-30 minutes per day over a period of about 4 weeks.

Within the first week, he was sitting at his desk reading documents when he noticed something move out of the corner of his eye. As he looked up, the ghostly figure of a man had walked through one wall, moved across the room and disappeared through another wall. The figure was totally unaware of Walter. Further exposures to this North pole field took place over a second and third week.

The second week, the same ghostly figure moved through the room and glanced toward Walter as he passed through. This time, the figure appeared to have slightly more detail, not quite so ghostly.

The third week, while busy working on documents, Walter noticed a change in the room. When he looked up, the wall had dissolved away and he was looking at a small hill where a man and woman sat beneath a tree. It was the same ghostly male figure who he had seen on the other occasions. He sat quit still, watching this pastoral scene for several minutes.

The man looked over toward Walter and appeared startled. It was as if he clearly SAW Walter this time and possibly recognized Walter as the ghost that he had seen the previous week! The image faded away and the wall restored to its normal condition. From that moment on, Walter never used the pineal stimulator again."

The Physics Of 2012

The Physics of 2012

montalk.net :: (CC) 30 March 07

If the 2012 phenomenon is real, it appears to be more complicated than some assume. My research tells me that in no way does it imply the mass ascension of everyone on this planet, because that would go against the freewill of those who instead of being ready for a higher realm are stubbornly content with the lower. Nor will it happen precisely on December 21, 2012 because that date is supposedly based only only two things: when the Mayan calendar ends and when the sun on winter solstice overlaps the galactic center; the first is of questionable dating while the second already occurred in 1998. The Shift may in fact be more the dimensional effect of a broad wave whose central peak resides on or after 2012, whereby the years immediately before and after the peak might be just as significant. My best estimate is that the window of 2012-2032 is of greater importance than the winter solstice of 2012 itself.

What does the Shift entail? As best as I can tell, it is an ungluing of our consensual collective reality so that the dissonant sectors of the population can diverge onto separate time streams, and then into separate realms of existence altogether. It is a higher degree expression of the same Realm Dynamics underlying our daily experiences. At the moment we all share the same planet, and separation among people of incompatible learning paths amounts to geographic separation at best, but more usually involves a simple synchronistic barrier between them so that they rarely cross paths in life. But as the polarization increases and the repulsive tension between dissonant population sectors grow, and as conditions on this planet increasingly leave less room for everyone's freewill to be accommodated in the same space and time, there will be increasing pressure for more extreme means of separation. According to Realm Dynamics, what begins as mere dislike between individuals can grow to parting of ways, a parting of timelines, and finally parting of dimensions. It is cellular mitosis on the hyper dimensional scale.

What causes the Shift? Why is it cyclical? Why does it relate to astronomical alignments? It may be that our solar system will be passing through a region of spacetime whose conditions vary greatly from our current region. Or perhaps rather than our going toward it, it is coming toward us. Either way, it is worth hypothesizing what physical mechanism could substantiate the Shift.

It's possible that radiating outwardly from the galactic center are spiral arms of greatly altered gravitational potential. As our solar system moves around the galactic center, it will cyclically enter and exit these spiral arms so that all planets and the Sun experience a simultaneous change in their gravitational potential. Others may have hypothesized similarly, but in this article I will follow this concept through to its logical conclusion and show you why the implications profoundly explain everything we can confidently say concerning the Shift.

General Relativity: Reaching the Portal Threshold

The galactic center is a super massive black hole, and black holes are exits from our universe. To understand black holes, one must first understand gravity. All masses give off gravitational force fields that cause other masses to fall towards them and vice versa. But underlying this field is a more fundamental field known as the gravitational potential. To make an analogy, if the gravity force field is like the downward slope of a hill, then gravitational potential is the measure of height at any point on that slope. Or if the force field is like wind, the potential is like air pressure. It takes changes in gravitational potential over some distance to produce a gravitational force field, just as it takes changes in height to make a slope that things can roll down, or changes in air pressure to create wind. On earth, each height above the surface (or distance from planetary center) carries a different gravitational potential, which creates a "slope" pointing downward (to the center) causing objects to fall if released.

It is evident from Einstein's Theory of General Relativity that the gravitational potential also sets the rate of time and scale of space. Clocks run slower and vertical rulers are shorter at lower altitudes because the gravitational potential is stronger there. A black hole is so compact and massive that its gravitational potential some distance away is already strong enough to slow time to a stop and shrink a dimension of space to zero. That distance is known as the event horizon, or the Schwarzschild radius. From our perspective, an object entering the event horizon will appear frozen in time, while the object itself is instantly propelled toward eternity and either ejected out of our physical universe or destroyed in the process.

Anyone entering a black hole will most likely be smushed to death because the changes in gravitational potential near the event horizon are so steep that the associated forces are too much to bear. But remember that it is the gravitational potential itself, and not the force field, that slows time and shrinks space. Therefore it is possible to have the same spacetime bending effects without any dangerous forces if the gravitational potential, despite being intense, varies very little within a given volume of space. It would be like a region of high air pressure without any wind. So as long as the spatial gradient in the gravitational potential is negligible, the potential itself can vary freely without accompanying forces.

Where things get interesting is what happens beyond the event horizon, or to put it another way, beyond the value of gravitational potential necessary to stop time. General Relativity has an equation showing how the gravitational potential determines time dilation:

As you can see, the more negative the gravitational potential, the greater the dilated time. Upon reaching a critical value, the potential causes the dilated time to become infinite, meaning that from our perspective the affected clock would take forever to reach the next second. In other words, that is when its time rate slows to zero. This critical value of potential may be called the portal condition:

The portal condition is found precisely at the event horizon of a black hole, but can exist elsewhere in gradient-free and thus force-free form. If the potential grows even more negative than the portal condition, then not only does the time rate shrink to zero, but it actually becomes imaginary. Unlike real quantities which are multiples of one, imaginary quantities are multiples of the square root of negative one, which in practical terms means "an impossibility in one dimension made possible in another." What we know as everyday linear time is real time. Imaginary time can vary without a single second of real time ticking by, and so it is the only time that continues to exist after one crosses the portal threshold.

Quantum Physics: Beyond the Portal Threshold

Crossing the portal threshold is equivalent to breaking the speed of light, but without moving an inch. It ejects one from real spacetime into imaginary spacetime, which is called hyperspace according to physics, timespace according to the Ra Material, and antimatter or etheric universe according to the Cassiopaeans. If linear time (real time) is really a loop, then crossing zero time and entering hyperspace would mean exiting from that loop. From there, other loops would become open to exploration. These would be parallel timelines.

After one crosses the portal threshold, how does one navigate, where does one go? This is where Relativity leaves off and quantum physics steps in. When time rate is reduced to zero, there is no longer a difference between cause and effect. Rather these exist as a single state from start to finish, simultaneous and overlapping, like a movie reel just sitting there. These are causal or deterministic sequences, meaning sequences where cause leads to a predictable effect without any surprises on the way. Such surprises are called quantum choice points, places where time branches onto any number of alternate possibilities. These represent nondeterministic events whereby consciousness alone chooses from a multiple set of "movie reels" which one to play next. This choice is represented in quantum mechanics as a particular "quantum phase," a single angle of alignment or position along the quantum wave function. What is the wave function? Unlike particles, which exist as tangible things in a single universe, a wave function is the collection of this particle's possible states as existing across all its parallel universes simultaneously. When consciousness observes a wave function, it automatically selects from the wave a single phase to lock onto and turn into an tangible possibility to experience.

So after entering hyperspace, it is imaginary time and the fundamental quantum phase (perhaps they are the same thing) that provide the primary measure markers of navigation. After entering hyperspace, consciousness can automatically phase-lock onto the linear timeline of choice and emerge into it by punching back through the portal threshold into real spacetime.

The Shift as Macroscopic Quantum Wave Expansion

Now, what does this have to do with 2012? Possibly everything. As mentioned, the hypothesis given here is that the galactic center radiates waves or spiral arms of altered gravitational potential. According to the unified field theory, there are a variety of mechanisms to generate such waves. Whatever the mechanism, if the solar system undergoes a gravitational potential change that exceeds the portal condition, our reality would literally become unglued.

See, the reason we are currently sharing the same planet on the same timeline is because we are all phase-locked onto the same fundamental quantum phase and thus the same primary reality. Our individual instances of reality are bound together because we are collectively stuck at the bottom of the same gravitational potential well, like marbles piled together at the bottom of a depression in a rubber sheet. Incidentally, the portal threshold is the amount of potential required to overcome the potential well of the entire physical universe. If the marbles were elevated beyond the lip of the depression they could escape, and likewise if we experienced a boost in our gravitational potential, our collective reality would dissolve. And that is exactly what would happen if we passed through an sufficiently altered region of spacetime, or if a gravitational potential wave passed through us. I believe this is the key mechanism behind the Shift.

Let's say that 2012-2032 does involve a cataclysmic alteration of our gravitational potential to the point where everything opens up. Then anything would go, anything is possible, future and past merge into a single moment of eternity, spacetime blows up into infinity, and consciousness is blasted into hyperspace. In the years leading up to this point, reality would simply become more plastic and responsive to our consciousness due to the changed gravitational potential loosening things up, but after that point reality would dissolve entirely. And after being tossed into hyperspace, consciousness would simply phase-lock onto whatever reality befits it. Far from being New Age speculation, this follows directly from a creative application of quantum and relativistic physics.

So what the Shift really means in this context is the unlocking of the gravitational chains that bind us to each other, so that a natural sorting or resettling process can occur where individuals can diverge onto new realities that best fit their own spiritual needs, realities that best resonate with their own quantum phase spectrum. The latter part is properly called a "macroscopic quantum wave collapse" — which is a term others have previously used, but here I tell you that this is only half the equation. The other half is meeting the portal threshold in the first place, which is the only way a tangible reality can be "uncollapsed," and that requires a gravitational potential wave whose peak amplitude is beyond the portal threshold. Put another way, the Shift is a macroscopic quantum wave expansion followed by a macroscopic quantum wave collapse. It is the opening and closing of the door to our reality. The Sampo grinds once more!

What happens afterward depends on the individual in question. Those of the least spiritual polarization and awareness may, like birds too young to fly being tossed into the air, fall immediately back into a limited linear timeline without remembering anything different. Our memories are part of the linear timeline and change along with any alterations to that timeline. Others may have gained sufficient personal energy and spiritual polarization to no longer be stuck inside gravitational potential wells, giving them a new degree of freedom to enter and exit timespace / hyperspace at will. That level of existence is called "fourth density" but here I wish to give a technical hypothesis of what that really means: total quantum phase freedom and conscious navigation through imaginary time.

The Future in Your Hands

Ultimately this means that where (and when) we end up depends on where we need to end up, on the culmination of our spiritual choices in life, and on what resonates most with our soul natures, because it is these that determine what realities we access after entering hyperspace.

That's why it's incredibly unrealistic to say that come 2012 everyone on earth is guaranteed to ascend to a higher level. That scenario would violate the freewill of those not ready and encourage passivity since, with ascension being guaranteed, all one needs to do is sit around and wait until 2012 comes, which is no different from the Christian Rapture or other doomsday lifestyles that promote passively waiting for the end. As far as the common criticism goes that even the kind of Shift mentioned in this article is no different from Rapture theories since it deals with a "grand event" that leads to a "judging of people" — keep in mind that the criteria for the sorting process discussed here is based entirely on freewill and spiritual necessity rather than some backwards moralistic dogma, and that the only ones doing the judging are the individuals themselves (or rather their own higher selves).

Realm Dynamics explains why the principles underlying the Shift are the same ones active at a lower degree in our lives everyday. If you want to know what your quantum phase resonance is, look at the kind of experiences you are attracting right now. What is the "theme" of your life experiences? Are you madly clambering for material satisfactions, stepping over others to attain your ambitions? Do you constantly suffer misfortune after misfortune, hostility, and persecution? Or do you strive for greater awareness and balance, with your life having its regular share of miracles? There are a thousand further questions, but these should get you thinking.

To vector onto the optimal reality trajectory, it takes a combination of optimal attitude, awareness, and action. More on these in another future article, but see my research note on attitude vs awareness. The greater your awareness, the more harmonious your attitude, and the more responsible your actions, the more you resonate with positive probable futures. Leave one of these out and the triad is broken, imbalance arises, and problems inevitably creep in.

I believe that if we do our part to empower ourselves, assist others in need, and continually reinforce the connection with our inner voice of intuition and spiritual conscience, we will ever come closer to remembering who we are and why we are here. With this "blueprint" of higher awareness fully activated in our souls, what precipitates from the hyperdimensional state is a new reality in full harmony with that blueprint.

7 Destructive Habits

7 Destructive Habits of Incompetent People

By Michael Lee,
Author of
How to Be a Red Hot Persuasion Wizard

WARNING! If you want to have a fantastic life, never engage
yourself in these 7 deadly habits that incompetent people do.

Number 1 - They Think, Say, & Do Negative Things.

Yup. They see problems in every opportunity.

They complain that the sun is too hot. They cursed the rain for ruining their plans for the day. They blame the wind for ruining their hair.

They think that everyone is against them. They see the problems but never the solutions.

Every little bit of difficulty is exaggerated to the point of tragedy. They regard failures as catastrophes. They become discouraged easily instead of learning from their mistakes.

They never seem to move forward because they're always afraid to come out of their comfort zones.

Number 2 - They Act Before They Think.

They move based on instinst or impulse. If they see something they like, they buy at once without any second thought.

Then they see something better. They regret & curse for not able to take advantage of the bargain.

Then they spend & spend again until nothing's left. They don't think about the future. What they're after is the pleasure they will experience at present.

They don't think about the consequenses. Those who engage in unsafe sex, criminality, and the like are included in this group.

Number 3 - They Talk Much More Than They Listen

They want to be the star of the show. So they always engage in talks that would make them heroes, even to the point of
lying.

Oftentimes they are not aware that what they're saying is not sensible anymore.

When other people advise them, they close their ears because they're too proud to admit their mistakes.

In their mind they're always correct. They reject suggestions because that will make them feel inferior.

Number 4 - They Give Up Easily

Successful people treat failures as stepping stones to success.

Incompetent ones call it quits upon recognizing the first signs of failure.

At first, they may be excited to start an endeavor. But then they lose interest fairly quickly, especially when they encounter errors.

Then they go & search for a new one. Same story & same results. Incompetent people don't have the persistence to go on and fulfill their dreams.

Number 5 - They Try to Bring Others Down To Their Level

Incompetent people envy other successful individuals. Instead of working hard to be like them, these incompetent ones spread rumors and try every dirty trick to bring them down.

They could've asked these successful ones nicely. But no, they're too proud. They don't want to ask advise. Moreover, they're too negative to accomplish anything.

Number 6 - They Waste Their Time

They don't know what to do next. They may just be contented on eating, getting drunk, watching TV, or worse, staring at the blank wall with no thoughts whatsoever to improve their lives.

It's perfectly fine to enjoy once in a while. But time should be managed efficiently in order to succeed. There should be a proper balance between work & pleasure.

Number 7 - They Take the Easy Way Out
If there are two roads to choose from, incompetent people would choose the wider road with less rewards than the narrower road with much better rewards at the end.

They don't want any suffering or hardship. They want a good life.

What these people don't know is that what you reap is what you sow. Efforts & action will not go unnoticed.

If only they would be willing to sacrifice a little, they would be much better off.

Successful people made it through trials & error. They never give up. They are willing to do everything necessary to achieve what they aspire for in life.

Dangers Of Psychiatric Drugs

For the past two years, I've been receiving communications from a practicing American psychiatrist, who has an office in the southeastern US. He sees patients privately. Increasingly, this man has been expressing doubts about the drugs he has been prescribing.

Now, he has blown the lid off his own profession, and it appears he is ready to switch careers or become an alternative health practitioner.

Here is an excerpt from our recent conversation. (New material is added at the end.)


Q: Why do you doubt the psychiatric drugs?

A: They're toxic and injurious.

Q: Which ones?

A: All of them.

Q: And in particular?

A: The antidepressants. Paxil, Prozac, Zoloft, and so on. They are not showing, on balance, good results, and patients have been experiencing adverse effects.

Q: Such as?

A: Sleeplessness, nightmares, erratic behavior, highs and lows, crashes, attempts to commit suicide, exacerbated depression, violence, dramatic personality changes.

Q: Why do you think this is happening?

A: To be honest, I don't know. But my sense is, in general, that the drugs interfere in unpredictable ways with various neurotransmitter systems. I also believe they can work extreme changes in blood sugar levels and electrolyte levels. You know, it's not hard to create these effects with chemicals. The body is not able to integrate them in its normal functioning. I would compare it to suddenly setting up all sorts of roadblocks and detours and forced lane changes on a busy highway. You will get big trouble.

Q: Have you tried to communicate your concerns to colleagues and medical groups?

A: For a short time, I did. But I was given the cold shoulder. I got the distinct feeling I was being treated like some wayward child who had his facts all wrong.

Q: Who do you blame for this drugging catastrophe?

A: At the moment, everybody. The doctors, the drug companies, the FDA, the psychiatric teaching institutions, even the press. And at some point, patients are going to have to take responsibility and not follow the orders of their doctors.

Q: Do you believe that doctors should cut back and give the drugs to some people and not others?

A: That sounds good, but there is no way to know what effects the drugs will cause in any given individual, especially as time passes. Even in the short term, I have seen some frightening things.

Q: Do you believe the profession of psychiatry has made some kind of overarching deal with the drug companies?

A: Yes. The drug companies are everywhere. They stick their noses into everyone's business.

Q: What lies about the drugs have you had to purge from your own mind?

A: The main one is that they're some kind of miracle breakthrough. Another one is that I can rely on the judgments and certifications of the FDA. We're playing Russian Roulette out here. It's a very dangerous situation.

Q: Do you believe that some of the school shootings have resulted from children being on the antidepressants?

A: I didn't, until one day a sixteen-year-old patient of mine showed up for his appointment with a 9mm handgun. Then I began to comb back through reports on a bunch of those shootings. I can tell you, it focuses the mind to see a young patient sitting across from you---you've put him on an antidepressant and now he's talking about "a new day" and he takes the gun out of his pocket and lays it on a table next to him by the Kleenex. You think to yourself, "I may have created a killer and his first victim could be me." People want to outlaw all guns. I'd start with the drugs.

Q: How about the diagnosis of depression itself?

A: I've come to realize that you can't do an interview with a patient and then come out with a shorthand assessment. It's wrong. It reduces all sorts of problems down to a label, and then you have your official gateway into the drugs.

Q: Your colleagues think you're over-reacting?

A: I think I'm under-reacting. I think we have an epidemic on our hands, but it has nothing to do with mental disorders. It has to do with the chemicals we're facilitating.

Q: This boy with the gun---were you able to talk him down?

A: I spent two hours with him that day. I told him he was having a reaction to the drug. At first, it made no sense to him. He was on a manic sort of ride. That really scared me---that I couldn't make him see what was happening to him. He was in the middle of an episode and he couldn't stand outside it. Finally, he eased up a little. He began to weep in my office. It wasn't really crying. Tears just ran down his cheeks while he was talking. He didn't seem to notice them. He had almost stopped being human. He was a...creature. He was on a mission of some kind. His view of the world had totally changed. In his mindset, destruction was the only course of action.

Q: And then?

A: He calmed down a little. I was afraid to ask him for the gun. He just picked it up and put it back in his pocket. After he left, I called his mother. She went home from her job and met him. I had asked her to call the police but she wouldn't. Later, she told me she sat and talked with him for a long time and then he handed over the gun. It was a very tense situation. I had her remove the bottle of pills from her medicine cabinet. Then I had to follow up. I weaned him slowly from the drug. It took two months. He finally sort of returned to being the person he was. Even then I wasn't sure he'd be okay. He was definitely addicted to the drug. Luckily, I didn't cut him off suddenly. He might have killed people during the withdrawal cycle.

Q: Did you continue to see this boy as a patient?

A: I did a nutritional assessment with the help of a doctor who is very good with that. We found the boy was having strange reactions to certain soft drinks that have speed-type boosters in them. We gradually weaned him off them. Then we discovered he was reacting to dyes and other chemicals in junk food. So we had to change his diet. That wasn't easy.

Q: He was addicted in several ways to chemicals.

A: That's right. There was peer pressure for him to keep eating junk. All his friends did. They called him weird for going off the food they were eating every day. Finally, I discovered that, five years before I saw him, he'd been on Ritalin for almost a year. You know, for ADHD. He'd been driven into depression by that. He basically felt, at eleven, that his life was all over. All paths and interests were closed to him.

Q: How is he now?

A: Much better. But he's not all the way back. I wish he were.

Q: Do you think there is permanent brain damage?

A: I don't know. He's now living outside the US with his father. I get reports once in awhile.

Q: How does he [the son] feel about his own experience?

A: He wants it to be an example to other families.

Q: You didn't go into medicine to deal with this.

A: No. In school, my ideals were high. But I allowed myself to be led down the garden path. I fell for the sales pitch. I'm telling you, this is not a good situation. We are a society on the brink. Something has to be done.

Q: How do you feel about Bush's mental health screening program for all children?

A: All in all, it may turn out to be the worst thing he's done as president. It's just a tip of his hat to his pharmaceutical supporters. But the long-range consequences---if this plan gets rolling---will be devastating.

Q: Is there some underlying principle at work here? Some paradigm that everyone is accepting that is putting us into a bad situation?

A: You know the answer to that. It's the combination of easy diagnosis plus the drug fix. The pill craze for everything. Take a drug and everything will work out. I see it as the classic street-drug promotion. Feel good. Take this drug and you'll feel different and better. Combine that with the basic immaturity of most people and you have the interlock. Why work out your problems and strive to have the life you want when you can arrive at the best destination with a pill? I'd take this a step further. If you stacked up all the tranquilizers and antidepressants, for adults, next to, say, marijuana, as a way of dealing with stress, I'd say that a very modest amount of a mild marijuana would be more successful than all those other drugs at the levels they're normally prescribed. If I were forced to recommend one or the other, I'd go with the marijuana. And I'd say the drug companies know this. Which is one reason why, in the US, the enforcement on marijuana has been stepping up. But again, you're always dealing with an individual. Each person is different. I've seen people who react very badly to pot. It affects them like a psychedelic.

Q: You're saying the science behind the antidepressants is false.

A: Absolutely. Judging by the effects of the drugs, it has to be. It may sound good and proper. All the right words are used. But I don't care about that anymore. I go by results. My eyes have been opened.

Q: Then why are the drug companies pushing these drugs?

A: I'm not an expert to speak to about that. Certainly there is the profit motive. But I think there is also the myth of progress.

Q: What do you mean?

A: That myth states that technology must keep making advances. It's the legend of forward motion. If technology is to be seen as good, it has to keep turning out better advances---otherwise something is wrong. And there can't be anything wrong.

Q: It's like a hectic race.

A: Yes. If you stop, you might fall down. Secrets might be exposed. Shortcomings might show up. So you have to keep pushing. You have to keep saying you're doing better and better. I'm sure you can see where this gets you. You make new mistakes to cover up old mistakes. You become careless. You lie. You hire promotion people to tout your work. You keep the whole thing rolling forward, no matter what. That's where we are.

Q: And you were carried on that wave.

A: For many years. But now I've stopped.

Q: Is it uncomfortable?

A: Not so much anymore. But at first I was very upset and angry. I was blaming everyone but myself. I felt like I was in chains, that my whole education and career were at stake. And I WAS my career. What else did I have? Getting off the boat was quite difficult. I had every advantage this society has to offer. I was---

Q: The expert.

A: Yes. That's a powerful feeling. People come to you with questions and you have the answers. If you don't, then you're thrown down in the pit with everyone else. Part of being a doctor is being above the pit, out of the problem. You're the solution. You don't want to fall. And the only thing that keeps you from falling is what you've learned. Your knowledge. When you see that that's based on lies, you don't know what to do. It's like being a priest and realizing that everyone gets to the far shore by his own means. You don't want to let go of the doctrine that put you on the pulpit.

Q: So what would a new paradigm look like?

A: For mental health? We have to get rid of all the old classifications and disorders. We have to let all that go into oblivion. That was wrong. That was largely fantasy.

Q: It was a story.

A: We told it, and now we have to stop telling it. Because we've ended up intervening in people's lives in a very pernicious way.

Q: Part of the story necessitated that kind of intervention.

A: Yes. And, not to take myself off the hook, but people want that kind of story, as you say. They want that "expert story." They want someone else to come in and tell them what to do and what to think and what drug to take.

Q: Why do you think that is?

A: Because people have taken the easy path. They have opted for what I would call a flat version of reality. If they started adding dimensions on their own---

Q: They would be forced to tell their own story.

A: In the terms you're using, yes. That's what would happen.

Q: And how would society look then?

A: Much different. Much more risky, perhaps, but much more alive. Psychology and psychiatry don't allow for that kind of outcome. All mental disorders are constructs. They're named by committees, as I'm sure you know. They're a form of centralized pattern. In this context, the word "shrink" is very appropriate. That's what we've been doing. Shrinking down the perception of what reality and the mind are all about.

Q: Can you imagine what would happen if the lid were taken off?

A: I work with that idea every day now.

Q: And how does it look?

A: More and more appealing.

(From this point on, the material is new, dated April 9-17, 2007.)

Q: What are your thoughts about all the revelations of cheating and lying in medical-drug studies?

A: It doesn't surprise me. I expected that that sort of thing was going on, and that it was pervasive. The drug companies don't want to admit failure. They wants their billions. I've come to see them as much more cold-hearted.

Q: How complicit are the medical journals that publish these studies?

A: I blame them as well. If they really wanted to, they could police what comes into them much more carefully. They could publicize cheaters. They could blackball them. But drug advertisers keep some of these journals afloat.

Q: So vows of ethical behavior on the part of the journals?

A: Half-truths and lies.

Q: If you can't believe the journals…

A: I believe my patients. I listen to them. I work with them, not on them. I trust my own observations.

Q: Do you prescribe psychiatric drugs?

A: Never.

Q: Could you get into trouble for that?

A: Yes. It's hard to say exactly which brand of trouble, but yes.

Q: Do you diagnose patients with the conventional mental-disorder names and labels?

A: Never. Not anymore. I don't divide up the brain or the mind of the patient into fictional categories.

…Q: What do you think about the Virginia Tech shootings?

A: It's horrible. I don't know what else to say.

Q: Were you reminded of that boy who brought a gun into a session with you?

A: Reminded? It was like a hand on my throat.

Q: Do you think the accused killer had been on antidepressants?

A: It's possible. I have no way of knowing. But if he was, there will be efforts to downplay it or cover it up.

Q: Would you say some of his behavior leading up to, and including, the shootings, is consistent with the effects of the SSRI antidepressants [Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, etc.]?

A: Consistent? Yes. That could have been the way it played out. I'm not saying there were no other factors. But to push him over the brink from ideation to murder…yes. The drugs can do that.

Q: So it's quite possible that, in the absence of the drugs---

A: He would have thought about it, but he wouldn't have done it.

Q: There are some very messed-up people out there who think about doing all sorts of things.

A: Yes. And they don't do them. And then you have lots of other people who just fantasize. They imagine destruction, but they're quite healthy. They…you see, as a society, we're creeping closer to the official premise that no healthy person imagines destruction, and therefore if you do that, you're sick. That's a crock. It's not only a crock, it's a pretense. It's an attempt to construct a delusional model of what a healthy human being is. But a person with no destructive thoughts is a doll in a toy store. Meanwhile, you have men who go out with semi-automatic weapons and kill harmless animals. What is that? Is that supposed to be normal? How many rounds do those weapons fire every second? The thrill of the hunt? What thrill? It's like driving over a beetle with a tank.

[Updated 4/4/07] 

Now comes the scientific proof that "just the thought of cash can lead to selfish acts"… thus making it extremely clear that devotees of "The Secret" may be straying from a spiritual path if they focus on the money.

Back when I still got the newspaper in Santa Monica, one article from November 18th of last year really jumped out at me… to the point that it is the only newspaper I ever saved, other than a comic about the Face on Mars. 

I just dug it out, searched for keywords online, and found the original on the LA Times website… hard proof of how a financial philosophy like "The Secret" is ultimately detrimental, as it inspires separation — getting us to turn against each other.

As you see here from my scanned copy, the actual newspaper article had a different title than we see on the website,, namely "Money, money, money; me, me, me". Check it out:

Thoughts of money lead to selfish acts, study finds

Psychologists find that just the thought of cash can lead to selfish acts.

By Karen Kaplan, Times Staff Writer
November 18, 2006

A team of psychologists has discovered why money can't buy happiness.

Pictures of dollar bills, fantasies of wealth and even wads of Monopoly money arouse feelings of self-sufficiency that result in selfish and often antisocial behavior, according to a study published Friday in the journal Science.

All it took to discourage college students from contributing to a University Student Fund were 15 short phrases such as "a high-paying salary." Those primed by money-related phrases donated an average of 77 cents, compared with $1.34 for students exposed to neutral phrases like "it is cold outside."

"The mere presence of money changes people," said Kathleen Vohs, a professor of marketing at the University of Minnesota and lead author of the study.

Money makes it possible for people to achieve their goals without having to ask friends or acquaintances for help. Therefore, Vohs and her colleagues theorized that even subtle reminders of money would inspire people to be self-reliant — and to expect such behavior from others.

A series of nine experiments confirmed their hypothesis. For example, students who played Monopoly and then were asked to envision a future with great wealth picked up fewer dropped pencils for a fellow student than those who were asked to contemplate a hand-to-mouth existence.

In another experiment, students spent six minutes completing a questionnaire on a computer before a screensaver suddenly appeared. Students who saw fish swimming across their screens later moved their chairs an average of 2 feet, 8 inches from a compatriot, while those who saw currency floating underwater stayed more than 3 feet, 10 inches away.

Money also influenced how people said they preferred to spend their leisure time. A poster of bills and coins prompted students to favor a solitary social activity, such as private cooking lessons, while students sitting across from posters of seascapes and gardens were more likely to opt for a group dinner.

"Money changes people's motivations," said coauthor Nicole Mead, a psychology graduate student at Florida State University. "They are less focused on other people. In this sense, money can be a barrier to social intimacy."

Perhaps their next study will examine whether money is indeed the root of all evil.

 

 Let's list the findings here:

  • Less financial generosity: Students primed to think about personal wealth with money-related phrases donated less to a charity than those who were given neutral phrases.
  • Less cooperation and service to others: Students envisioning a future of great wealth were less likely to help others in need… in that case by neglecting to pick up pencils others had dropped.
  • More physical separation from others: Students who see money on a screensaver move their chairs 43 percent farther away from others than those who see fish.  (46 inches rather than 32)
  • More desire to totally separate from others: Students who simply saw a poster of bills and coins were more likely to choose an activity that separated them from others, rather than those seeing photographs of nature. 

 

OK, BUT WHY DOES IT MATTER TO ME?

According to the Law of One and many other similar philosophies, humanity is in a perpetual childhood… and with that comes an ongoing narcissism and inability to see outside one's own needs.

As I said in Part Two, a much deeper 'Secret' is the fact that we have a multi-dimensional identity… and destiny. If you focus on enriching the physical body, that is your choice, but based on esoteric wisdom teachings, you have totally missed the point. What's even more important is that this is the most important time in human history for you to get it. No one else can make this decision for you. Only you have control over how you will treat others, and what path your future will take as a result. 

Many people become addicted to the body, even worship the body, believing that's their identity… that's who they are, and that's all there is. In truth, your body is an instrument for you to learn from. You can think that the body is all you are, and that's your right, but you will also be given tantalizing clues that there is something more. MUCH more.

What I put out in The Science of Peace, and will reveal in even greater detail in our upcoming Hollywood movie CONVERGENCE, is the definitive scientific proof we've all been waiting for… that we ARE far more than physical bodies, and are NOT separate and isolated from one another.

 

YOUR CONSCIOUS MIND IS JAM-PACKED WITH OTHER PEOPLE'S THOUGHTS

We are all fundamentally interconnected on an energetic level, and thoughts in one person's mind directly affect thoughts in another person's mind. Your own conscious mind, (don't freak out, now,) is actually crowded to the hilt with thoughts from others. The reason why you don't notice this is that you experience the 'human energy field,' as I call it, as if it were your internal, personal, first-person thinking mind.

Breaking free of this illusion is a great perceptual shift humanity needs to make in order to understand what's wrong with the world, and what we can do to fix it… why chasing after financial wealth while hurting and killing others cannot ever solve anything, whereas cultivating inner peace is by far the best option we have… and worth far more than money can ever provide us.

 

NOISY THOUGHTS FROM OTHERS CREATE INTERNAL CHAOS

As a general rule, the stronger your emotions are in an event that happens to you, the stronger your 'upload' of data into the human energy field will be. 

The other day I was with my friend Jay in the sushi restaurant in Santa Monica, and the chef was angry about something. I noticed it immediately. For me, with the protective shielding 'cracked' so I can do deep-trance psychic work, his thoughts were as loud as a deafening siren… and equally as painful. 

Jay had no problem, and didn't even realize the chef was upset, whereas I had to evacuate the area. The chef might as well have been screaming in my face.

The chef wasn't attacking me, and had no idea his thoughts would be affecting me. Other people in that same situation may start mysteriously feeling tension and anxiety, without understanding the cause.

This is why 'being psychic' is nothing unique. It's already happening to you. All the time.

 

GET THE KNOWLEDGE AND BECOME AWARE OF IT!

Once you gain the information to prove it's happening, like in The Science of Peace, then you can simply learn to become aware of it… and upgrade your thoughts to a frequency that is higher than human group-think. It is much easier to do this in a suburban or country area than in a city, though. 

If you live in an apartment building, and the couple two doors down is having an epic argument that could lead to their permanently separating, then even if they never raise their voices, the emotional energy could be so strong that your mind will be polluted with their thoughts. If you don't know any better, you will start feeling the same feelings. 

That's precisely why I had to get the heck out of Santa Monica. Cities amplify the disharmony of individuals. Everyone picks up the disharmonious thoughts, believes they are their own thoughts, and then projects them into real events… thus amplifying the signals even more. For someone like myself, the only relief came when everyone was asleep — and that in turn led to me staying up far too late at night in order to feel a connection to my own Source, once everyone else had quieted down.

Some scientific data proves that distance is a factor… the closer you are to a stressful, emotional event, the more it will permeate into your own conscious mind. Nonetheless, there is no distance that exempts you from these thoughts. Therefore, since there are large amounts of the planet that are in desperate, grinding poverty and fear, there is a constant thought-current being put into your mind, experienced as if it were your own personal feelings, tempting you to stay in these emotional states. 

 

EVEN IN SLEEP YOU PICK THINGS UP

If you live in an area where there are really disturbed people right near you (walls are irrelevant, as 'torsion fields' pass right through them), then even in sleep you may not find peace. When I slept at my friends' house in Venice, there were homeless people sleeping and peeing in the carport below me, less than 20 feet away, through concrete walls. (Not peeing through the walls, mind you, at least not that I was aware of.)

Sure enough, I started having dreams that I was lost, broke, alcoholic and hopeless, living on the street. This is not because I'm a super-psychic; it would happen to anyone who remembers their dreams and is perceptive enough to see what might have triggered them.

Early in my career I gave a conference and had to crash on the people's couch. Their senile grandmother usually sat there and frequently was incontinent. All during the night on that couch I had dreams of severe embarrassment where I discovered I had totally soiled myself and needed others to help me get clean.  

In another early case I stayed at a hotel in Schenectady, New York with my mother, while we were there for a family event. I slept on the bed right next to the TV. I had the craziest action-movie dreams all night, with endless gunning and running, harrowing plot twists and betrayals. I woke up and sure enough, all the available movies to watch were high-intensity action thrillers. Whomever had been on that bed before me must have really projected his emotions into those films and had powerful responses.  

When I first started waking up to all this stuff in 1996, one morning I had a dream where there were many people gathered outside my house, and it was clearly associated with the fire department. I then woke up and found that in fact there WERE many firemen gathered exactly where they had been in the dream, because the house next door was burning down. All those people gathered in one place had created a very powerful signal that I then experienced directly in my dream as a group consciousness event.

One time while my mother was still living in Florida, I was taking an afternoon nap and had an extensive encounter with someone who seemed to have just harmed themselves very badly. He had a lot on his mind, was very depressed, and cried profusely. He ended up traveling into a beautiful field with a glowing light in it after I helped him through his grieving process. I woke up and there were police all over… one of Mom's neighbors had just shot himself to death. 

Of course, I have over 500 documented examples of clients where my dream had remarkable insights into their life issues. This is just a further extrapolation of the same process. I feel blessed by my dreamwork discipline, because every day I 'get a reading' and find out the most important information I need to know for my own spiritual growth, right in that moment.  

[It IS possible to clear others' energy out of a space so you can sleep in it more peacefully. The key, as always, is to imagine pure white or violet light radiating through the room you're going to be sleeping in, and also a cocoon of light around your own body. If you can summon these emotions from your finest levels of consciousness, with an intensity of love and focus, it can act as a current of higher 'vibration' that cleanses the thoughtforms before they ever have a chance to reach you.]

 

"WE CANNOT PERCEIVE YOU AS SEPARATE ENTITIES"

So, getting back to the example of people fighting in a nearby apartment while you're awake, you may not hear them, but your conscious mind takes the thoughtforms near you and then interprets them as your own thoughts. One of the most poignant statements in the Law of One series is, "We CANNOT perceive you as separate entities." 

In much the same way, we don't think of ourselves as a collection of individual organs, or individual cells. We know there are millions of blood cells constantly in motion, keeping our bodies nourished, but we don't think of them as separate. We know a beach is made from untold trillions of grains of sand, but we just see a beach. The higher forces know there are over six billion people on this planet, but what they see is a single, living, conscious human energy field — with 'cells' that feel themselves unique and separated from the whole.  

The mission of ET souls, or Wanderers, is predominantly just to 'hold the Light' on Earth by taking on a physical incarnation. By simply holding a body here on Earth (and ideally staying in a consistent state of harmony,) you are upgrading the quality of thought in everyone else's mind.

 

THE CALLING AND THE 'LAW OF EXPONENTS'

There's an interesting mathematical principle that the Universe built in to the game to favor the positive path, which is properly called the Law of Exponents. You have to remember that there are higher forces out there that could solve every problem ever known on the planet, almost instantaneously… but they can only help as much as they are CALLED to help. 

Negative entities can equally be called upon when you try to manipulate others for your own gain… such as "The Secret" might incline people to do. They can assist you when you want to treat your Higher Self like a prostitute, and for a time it might work. Nonetheless, by calling on the negative you also give them the mandate to interfere with your free will… and the more people make that call, the more the negative can infringe on the whole planet.  

You might therefore think that if five people are calling on the negative, and five people are calling on the positive, that the callings would be equal, and balance each other out… but that's not how it works. The Universe is very heavily biased towards the positive side. Thanks to the Law of Exponents, you'd have five people calling on the negative and the energetic equivalent of 2^4 people calling on the positive… or 2×2x2×2, which is 16.

So already the positive call is 320 percent stronger than the negative call, when it's five against five. Add another person to the positive side and the positive instantly becomes 640 percent stronger than the negative call. Add another and it becomes one thousand, two hundred eighty percent stronger than the negative. This percentage just keeps getting more and more outrageous as the 'calling' for the positive goes up.

The more the positive percentage goes up, the more miracles can occur that insure we don't have poverty, fatalities, corruption, government conspiracy and Earth Changes. Plus, we are reaching a "tipping point" in 2012 where we cross the line, and if you're not on the positive path you simply won't be able to find your way into a body on this planet.  

The irony is that at the time the Law of One came through in the early 1980s, only a few hundred thousand people were actually calling strongly enough for the Ra group to personally have a mandate to assist. Even so, that number far outstripped the negative, which is apparently part of the reason why we've been protected from many of the more severe scenarios.

I am grateful that this website, and others like it, have exposed many more people to the ancient mystery teachings of esoteric philosophy, thereby increasing the calling.   

 

LEARNING TO THINK FOR YOURSELF

So, we as human beings are co-creating a single lifeform with the consciousness of the Earth itself… and many people identify this consciousness as being more female than male, though it has both aspects. Very few people on this planet have truly indviduated, where they are actually thinking for themselves and breaking off from consensus patterns of belief.

Every person who consumes and regurgitates information from schools, governments and media, without any critical analysis, ends up adding a lot less to the collective consciousness of humanity than they may realize. Gathering a bunch of facts, and then simply regurgitating what you read as if it's an original thought, is really not adding to humanity's collective consciousness.

Looking for patterns among the facts, seeing how they connect together in ways others do not, questioning the reality everyone else accepts at face value (like the government as a benevolent father with your best interests in mind), integrating your own life experiences with your knowledge base in writing, like many are doing in their 'blogs' these days, or in the explosive growth in posting on the discussion forum on this website… this can actually represent more of a movement in the human energy field. 

 

POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE 'GREETING'

New and innovative thoughts will also gather attention, from both the positive and the negative side.

The positive side will rush to help you foster your creativity and original thought, whereas the negative will seek to steer you towards using your ability to help yourself at others' expense, to care more about your own enrichment than of serving others — to use 'The Secret'. Or, if the negative can't get you to change your polarity, they can try to thwart your positive efforts.

This phenomenon of 'negative greeting' is very real, though again, most people would think you're completely a superstitous nut to mention it. We had one guy in the discussion group about two years ago who insisted that 'negative greeting' was so highly rare that it basically only applied to the group who channeled the original Law of One material. This was very clearly not the case by a simple study of the material itself. Negative greetings are happening to people all the time. 

When I worked with Hideo Izumoto, a Shinto acupuncturist who could see the aura like most people watch television, he often saw 'entities' superimposed over people's faces as he'd needle them in a certain area where they had an energy blockage, or what he called an 'entity attachment.'

I dug up medieval pictures of negative entities, or 'demons,' in books like Manly Palmer Hall's "The Secret Teachings of All Ages," and Hideo was dazzled at how similar they looked to what he actually saw come off of people's faces — often rushing at him to try to scare him before they left. 

I was given very explicit, strict warnings by my Higher Self to never be asleep in the house when he came over to give people treatments, because in the first few moments after these entities are thrown out of someone's body (and they prefer to latch on to either the head or the genital / anal area), they would have enough energetic strength to breach into my dreamspace. If I was awake at the time, I was shielded enough that I'd hardly notice anything, other than perhaps a momentary oppressive feeling.

On a few occasions I forgot to stay awake when Hideo got started, and I had to do battle with these entities in my dreamspace like something straight out of the battle between Yoda and Count Dooku in Star Wars Episode II, the battle between the two wizards in Lord of the Rings, or battles like Neo had to fight in each of the three Matrix movies. You really do end up levitating, hurling bolts of energy, et cetera in order to defend yourself… and it's not as glamorous as it sounds.  

 

HOW TO MANAGE NEGATIVE GREETING

On a more practical level, we see these greetings, even the negative ones, as a blessing. Either way they're speeding up the process of our evolution. When you move towards the positive, there will be wise, loving entities who send you more energy so you can flourish there, and go farther. When you veer towards anger, fear, shame, guilt, control, manipulation and jealousy, there are always entities standing by to instantaneously send energy to strengthen those emotions.  

The Law of One 'protocol' for managing negative greeting is:

  1. Send love to the attacker. Recognize them as a reflection of that part of yourself that feels separate and is in great emotional pain.
  2. Make a strong, healthy boundary and stick to it. Reject the service they offer you because it is not USEFUL for you to be enslaved. 

This is another reason why I strongly discourage conspiracy posts on the discussion forum, and why I don't overly dwell in alternative media. As I've written before in The Revealing and other entries in this blog, almost everyone gets angry at the negatives once they find out what's going on, and this is, in fact, a form of worship that actually strengthens, not weakens, them.

The ONLY thing that makes them wither away is when they don't get to be all big and bad, you see them for the scared, wounded children they are, and you can love them as you love that part of yourself… while also making a firm boundary and not allowing them to manipulate you.  

This is also why the Law of One series refused to use the term "psychic attack," and rather chose "negative greeting." To the enlightened mind, negative greetings are blessings because these entities can ONLY mirror to you what you've already created. The strength of their greeting can never EXCEED what you've created for yourself by your own free will.

Therefore, you're given a chance to balance out your karma and return to a place of perfect balance.  People often plague themselves with guilt, believe that they've done something wrong and it will continue to haunt them. Thanks to the increasing intensity of 'thoughts becoming things' as we head towards the end of the cycle, most people's karmic balance is happening almost immediately after they create it… and the objective is not to judge you, but simply to restore you to a place of balance. 

So, if you get a karmic blast, the best thing to do is RELEASE any sense of guilt or foreboding. Be grateful that you've cleared whatever it was you'd created, and strive to go the extra mile next time, trying to remain as pure and loving in your orientation as possible.  

 

"IS THIS MINE OR SOMEONE ELSE'S?"  

Perhaps now you're seeing what I'm talking about with the idea that your conscious mind is an amalgamation of different influences that you think of as positive. Don't bother going schizophrenic because you think negative entities are speaking in your mind… it's been happening your whole life, whenever you veer towads anger, fear and control. Nothing new about it. Perhaps now you're starting to think it might be possible.

By the same token, when you think and feel love, you are quite literally surrounded by angelic beings — who you usually cannot see — who are beaming love and light into you in direct proportion to how much you choose to feel. The farther you go with this, the more they can help you… and the more you increase the 'calling' so they can, in turn, help others.

Either way — the negative or the positive — your mind becomes the playing ground where these influences converge. However, unless you really begin quieting your mind down and seeking stillness and inner peace, the strongest voices by far will be those of your fellow human beings. Thoughts can race in that have nothing to do with you whatsoever… and that's where you must learn to ask "Is this mine or someone else's?"

Let's say someone near you is very angry, and you get a bolt of it in your own mind, and start feeling anger yourself. Then, because your conscious mind wants to feel in control and relieve paradoxes (like how your brain fills in the gaps of your peripheral vision), you look for something that is causing you to feel angry. You may well end up blowing up at your own partner over something that they never really did.

Once you find an apparent cause for why you feel so terribly, you are quick to attack it, believing that this will resolve the issue and clear your negative emotions. Imagine how quickly this 'disease' can spread all over the world. This is what's happening to us all the time. Many ET souls, or 'Wanderers', are here to offset those influences and increase the strength of calling towards the positive. 

The real art of training yourself to be psychic is in SHUTTING DOWN that personalizing 'filter' we all typically have, so you can begin differentiating signals that YOU create in your own mind as opposed to signals that ARISE in your mind without any effort. You can indeed learn to ask yourself "Is this mine or someone else's?" You might be surprised how often it is NOT yours. This is not necessarily a bad thing, though, as signals can come from a variety of places… 

 

SOMETIMES IT COMES DIRECTLY FROM YOUR OWN HIGHER SELF

Your Higher Self can also guide you in ways that are not as simple as sending you loving energy when you think loving thoughts, to strengthen you in that direction. At other times, it can guide you around blindly for some future manifestation that you have no idea about yet. For most metaphysically or spiritually-inclined people, such phenomena are known as 'synchronicities', and they are very real.

A classic example is when you are having an important thought for your spiritual growth, and you then walk into the other room and look at the clock. 3:33, 11:11, 12:12, or whatever number pattern has significance to you is then staring back at you!

People who DON'T experience this will just laugh, saying that you are "making it all up," et cetera. Other people might invoke "The Secret" and imply that the only reality is the one YOU create, on the conscious-mind level… no greater reality exists. Therefore you are just being superstitious, because if you didn't WILL those synchronicities to happen, then they shouldn't have. 

The trick is to approach your Higher Self like a maiden. Say "I'm willing to listen to you. If you want to send me a message by showing me repeating numbers, I will pay attention to it." And then wait and see what happens! Even if you don't really believe in all this stuff, if you are at least willing to give it a shot, your Higher Self will get to work and start creating them for you. 

Once you 'encode' this synchronicity, by being willing to ACCEPT that it means something, and that it is your Higher Self getting you a message, you will be DAZZLED at how often it starts happening. This has been my reality ever since my early 20s. 

What's the message? In my experience, you have to remember what you were thinking RIGHT BEFORE you see the numbers. When the digits are all aligned, that means "You are on the right track. The thought in your mind right now is very important for you. Keep focusing on that." If you are influenced to look at the clock and you see 3:32, 11:10, 12:11, et cetera, where it hasn't quite hit yet, that means "You're almost there, but something's off. Look deeper, find the love that is missing, and see if you can improve on that thought." 

[Beware of shopping at Target, as they see this trend towards 'numericals' and have many items whose prices end in repeating digits other than 9. This does not mean that it's a 'synchronicity' to buy those items!]

 

NUMERICAL SYNCHRONICITY

It's not just clocks, either. It can be license plates, hit counters on websites, times when someone sends you an email, or the mileage on your odometer.

On many occasions I've had odometer synchronicities in my car. Just before I started doing readings, I had clear dream guidance I needed to take a new job. At the EXACT moment I pulled my car into the parking spot at the place where I began working, the odometer was at exaclty 128888 miles. This would not have happened except for the fact that I made a dumb mistake, a wrong turn 'without thinking,' and then had to take a detour in order to get there. 

That "dumb mistake," where I was "just not thinking," was actually a guided event… from a part of myself vastly older and wiser than my conscious mind… taking advantage of an opportunity to get me to make turns, all without conscious awareness, that synchronized my odometer at a highly meaningful number for me. The alignment occurred precisely when I found my parking spot and came to my final stopping point. That 'numerical' made me feel far more confident that taking the job was the next good step for me to make… so I did it, and it was indeed valuable. 

I've had things even more miraculous than that. In New Paltz I would occasionally shop at Robin's Food Warehouse, and then take a certain 'back road' to get home. On two different occasions I went to Robin's, had a certain amount of money I could spend, (say 10 dollars), told myself "I don't want to exceed 10 dollars on this trip," and then bought what I felt "guided" to get. I went to the cashier and the dry beans weighed in at .999 pounds, let's say — a three-digit numerical (I did not weigh the bag, though the scoops do tend towards a good pound of weight) — and the bill came out to precisely 9.99 with tax… a numerical AND exactly one penny less than I could pay!

Then I got in the car, reached a certain intersection on the back road, and the last three or four odometer digits had lined up… something like 129444.4… at the same exact moment that the clock hit, say, 4:44! [I have the exact data somewhere in my journal… I remember the intensity more than the exact numbers.] 

Then, a month later, I repeated the same thing… went to Robin's, AGAIN hit precisely how much I wanted to spend without counting it precisely, again got in the car, again reached the exact same intersection as before, and AGAIN had three or four odometer digits lined up (including tenths of a mile), AND had the repeating digits on the clock… perhaps in that case 5:55 rather than 4:44! 

In another case, it correlated with the weather. I was on my way to a music gig at Duchess Community College, I had a very valuable thought for my own growth at the time, I saw my odometer digits were lined up, the clock was at 5:55 and at that instant, it started pouring rain… spontaneously! 

Events like that have a way of STRONGLY breaking down the "conditioning" that there is nothing more to life than a random series of causes and effects with no higher connections. All of them show how you can be guided to do seemingly random things, and never realize how you are following an orchestrated pattern that leads to higher results.  

Part of how you can foster these changes in your own life is to not try to control everything, with rigid schedules that say you always do so-and-so at such-and-such time. Of course, you don't want to be late for work, but you also can let in more spontaneity in your leisure time. Live your life, stop and enjoy things you might normally miss, 'go with the flow', and you'll be amazed at how many of your seemingly random behaviors were actually GUIDED to get you to experience synchronicity.  

As I've written before, I had wondered if I was supposed to go to that crossroads near Robin's, where I had the odometer-clock combo on two different occasions, and have a UFO contact experience there, or some such thing… but at the time such an idea was so foreign and terrifying that I wouldn't have dared go back there to tempt my fate.  

[I got diverted into a phone call after writing this. The phone call ended at a seemingly natural time. I walked around the house for a while and then came back in here, ready to write. The clock was at exactly 4:44 and I had not planned it consciously. Clearly this is a good thing for me to be doing… that's the message. These types of things happen to me constantly! Now, on the second pass, as I get to this exact point again, I checked the clock 'just in case,' and this time it's at 10:10… and again I did not plan this in advance, it just happened that way.]  

 

INTERFACING WITH YOUR MULTI-DIMENSIONAL PERSONALITY

A more common, garden-variety synchronicity example is where you end up 'bumping into someone', seemingly at random.

These intersections are NOT random. In the case of the numerical synchronicities, a higher aspect of your own multi-dimensional personality was able to slip thoughts into your mind, as if they were your own ideas. You think you're making a totally random decision to get up from the chair and walk into the other room at a certain moment. [Like what just happened to me!]

You don't realize that you were influenced to do so, by a higher aspect of yourself, in order to get you a message of synchronicity. Your Higher Self may have to play these games with you for years before you ever lower your cynicism and sarcasm enough to actually take it seriously. It seems that our Higher Selves are very keenly aware of time cycles and can easily coordinate with clocks. Once you see a clock change from one minute to the next, you are totally 'recalibrated', in this case.

In the case of bumping into someone you already know, your familiarity with that person means that, at certain times, you will feel their thoughts as if they were your own. So if your friend puts a strong intention into saying, "I really need to get to the market before it closes at 5:00," then you don't think, "My friend will try to get to the market before it closes at 5:00," you think, "I really need to get to the market before it closes at 5:00."

Then you blindly brush it off as a "coincidence" when you actually DO bump into your friend at the market before it closes at 5:00!

This is no longer a speculation, or a metaphysical what-if… it is a scientific FACT — the Science of Peace — and we're the first to make the case in such detail.  I think it's a very good thing to bring this out of the realm of superstition and into hard science.

[Someone else, who I actually met at a party, took the Science of Peace name a year after Larry and I first did the series, registered most of the domain names, (I didn't do it at the time, since I figured it would be there when we were ready,) and is still seeking non-profit grants to develop a program on this subject for PBS… but there is no product to show for it yet.

Again, people thinking along the same lines, with similar types of information as I'd put together for the MP3 series, got an 'original' idea after I'd already come up with it… but then beat me to the registration of the website URL. Now, thanks to the "Hundredth Monkey Effect," any time I get a great title or name I might use, I immediately go and register the dot-com name for it so I don't lose it.]

 

MONEY PROTECTS US FROM FRAGILITY

Now that we've explored the wild world of synchronicity, let's get back to the so-called 'reality' most of us take for granted…. namely the reality that we are in a body that suffers and ultimately dies, perhaps leaving us empty and void, with no further existence left. Most people, when push comes to shove, really cannot prove to themselves that they will exist beyond physical death — and this is yet another reason why they cling to money as if it were their God. 

Despite how cosmic we are… what incredible treasures lie in wait for us to discover… our bodies are also fragile at the same time. This leads us to feel a need to protect and defend the body. We do not like to feel pain, even though we can learn from it. Pain hurts.

Money has the ability to protect the body from a wide variety of pains, and also to create many pleasures. If you've ever been on a road trip where you have no extra money for a hotel, and then you have car trouble when you're only halfway home and it's already too late to get to a garage, then you know what a terror not having money can be… trying to stretch out on the back seat of your car in the freezing cold, feeling the car churn as everyone speeds past you all through the night while you pretend to sleep, because your body says that's what you should be doing. 

Similarly, if you DO have money to spare, that same problem could simply amount to calling a taxi on your cell, stopping in at a hotel, hitting the workout room, the sauna and the jacuzzi, and then heading out for a great sushi dinner, then watching a movie on the TV and sleeping in a nice, warm, comfortable room before you get your car worked on in the morning.

Yet, isn't it strange to compare these ideas to what the Vohs study (above) discovered? If I were to tell you the story about being marooned all night in my car because I was broke, you might turn around and be more generous… but if I tell you the story about an opulent night in a hotel, because I could afford it, then you might be much less likely, scientifically speaking, to want to reach out to others.

So, when we are reminded of others having gone through adversity, we are more apt to be generous… but if the thoughtforms of our own enrichment are put into our minds, we pull away from others, move into separation, and almost instinctively veer in a direction the Law of One philosophy defines as the negative path… and therefore putting us at risk of getting hit with the arrows of karma. 

 

WHY IS THE BODY SO FRAGILE, ANYWAY

The Eleusinian mystery text we shared in Part III describes the inherent dangers in a "God of Unearned Abundance." Even so, wouldn't it make more sense for the Universe to build our bodies to be tougher, more resilient than they are?

Personally I've been suffering the effects of poison ivy for a month now, and I've only recently gained control over it. Do I really have the stamina to be grateful for the 'catalyst,' for the growth experience, that this has provided me? Do I see far enough to understand WHY such a condition is in my highest and best good? That question, and how it dovetails with my moving into a new house that was a major step up from the dreary apartment I escaped from, was what started off this article series in the first place.

We DO have an answer to this question about the body. According to the Law of One series, the Logos, i.e. the mind of our Galaxy as a Creator, could indeed have designed FAR sturdier bodies than what we now have. No question. However, the frailty of our bodies was intentional… it leads us to having more opportunities to grow, from our own suffering, as well as to reach out to others who are suffering.

On this planet, at this time, most of us have totally lost sight of how the body is a holographic mirror of the mind and spirit… so in getting back to the Choice Between Two Paths archetype, when we veer over towards the negative or service-to-self side, we take the hits from the arrows of karma… and the body was designed so they would be able to have a noticeable impact when they hit. 

Now let's get into a question that helps us focus on the details a bit more…  

 

AN IMPORTANT QUESTION… 

I have a question about co-creating, or manifesting, or whatever you want to call it. I am reading Ester and Jerry Hicks' book: The Law Of Attraction right now, actually, and I really enjoyed your positng on that subject. But what I don't get, and I would really like clarified, is the canoodling of co-creation and not interfering with anyone's Free Will. How can those two exist at the same time, if you cannot co-create with someone else in mind, but you cannot co-create without them… They have to be creating something with you.

How can co-creation work, if you are forbidden by Universal Law to interfere with Free Will? It sounds like a hypocritical law to me. Can you explain this in part of your blog on manifesting? Just a quick clarification, because I'm sure I'm not the only one who does not 'get' the whole concept of Free Will, and how that can 'interfere' with a 'specific' manifestation… It sounds like one of those things that you just have to accept and not 'want' to do, like murdering someone, because you know it's wrong.  

Thanks!

OK. There are some misunderstandings with this question, which is fine. First of all, yes… Universal Law is all about not interfering with the free will of others. As Part III of this series so eloquently showed, the whole focus is on service… and I thank you for all the emails on that, thanking me for helping you re-orient your focus back to the core principle that "if you continually give, you will continually have." 

Let's say you DO want to serve humanity spiritually, and you DO want to attract greater prosperity at the same time. This does involve interacting with other people. The Law of Free Will only specifies that you will not attract people into your life who are not of like mind. You CAN put out the call for those of similar vibration to synchronistically find you. Rather than say "I want THIS person," you say "I want a person LIKE this" and see what comes up. 

If you are doing work that impacts others' lives, spiritually or otherwise, the key is to put your service out there to the best of your ability. Then, if others like what you're doing, they might want to join you on their own free will and co-create with you… but if you are trying to go out and convince people that you have something great to offer, even if they're not really sure, you're not just doing a "hard sell" — you're interfering with their free will.

When you keep the spirit of giving and service alive, there are all sorts of synchronistic miracles… using the same principles as the clock synchronicities above… that will begin happening. The Ra complex says, in the Law of One series, "We do not offer service where none is requested." All we have to do is ASK… and the more we call upon peace and love, rather than "gimme, gimme, gimme," the more the Law of Exponents kicks in and greater things start happening… to us and around us.

 

A STORY OF TWO HOUSES: THE ORIGIN

Let's get back, for a moment, to the tack I originally started this series with. I had never even imagined I'd end up in a share house situation on a mountaintop in LA… I didn't even think it was possible. Someone who saw "The Secret" might believe that if you put a picture of something like that on your refrigerator, and obsessively believe you're going to get it, that the "Law of Attraction" would kick in and you'd get it… but this is not necessarily the case.

Remember… the key, in my own case, was that I finally asked "Where should I move to best serve others with my work on the planet?" After I made that request, honoring my Higher Self in its role as teacher, protector and guide, and my role as seeking to align my intent with that of my Higher Self as much as possible, I was naturally guided by my own reason to the answer… get out into the woods, get in a less-populous area, go for a higher altitude if you can find it.

 

DRAGGED KICKING AND SCREAMING!

That's not the end of the story. The night before I was going to see this place, I was already so stressed out that the thought of having to be there at 9:30 am was totally awful. I'd been beating my head against a wall for the better part of two weeks, making it my full-time job to look at as many different properties as possible, and I was trying to hit at least two or three viewings a day.

Now that I was NOT going to be looking in Santa Monica, but rather out in the Malibu / Topanga / Woodland Hills / Calabasas region, a great deal more driving was involved. Each trip was a half-hour each way. So getting to this viewing at 9:30 am meant being on the road by 9, which meant dragging myself out of bed at 8:30 at the latest… ideally.

Since I was still staying up until 1:30 am or later, on average, I was in no shape to try to get to sleep early. I did try, but it didn't even work. I was totally frazzled. I really felt like I was dying inside. I'd been trying so hard to get something to manifest, and had never had so much trouble in my entire life. 

For some strange reason, and this has never happened before or since in my entire life, that night my hand shot up, while I was asleep, and slammed against the headboard of my bed… enough to wake me up and cause pain. In the meantime, I'd already basically decided I was going to sleep through the morning and blow off the viewing. I had others scheduled that were a better use of my time anyway. 

After all, the place I was looking at didn't seem to have anything I wanted:

  • First of all, the space was not private… I'd be sharing with one other person, and that was something I'd said I would never again do. I figured there was NO WAY I could 'randomly' end up with a housemate who could actually handle living with me and not either love me or hate me… and either one could quickly make it very unworkable. 
  • Secondly, it was a "Lower," and I had absolutely stated I did not want a "lower". It was not part of my intention. If I was giving my Higher Self marching orders, (and at that time I was, having lost touch with the maiden / prostitute archetype,) a "lower" was off-limits.
  • Third of all, I still wanted to be near Santa Monica, but this was out in the 'middle of nowhere' on top of a mountain. No matter where I went it would be at least a 15-minute drive, and I liked the convenience of being able to walk out my front door and hit restaurants, health food stores, et cetera, all within walking distance. I hardly ever needed to drive except for special occasions.

I was constantly waiting for my cell phone (yes, I finally got one last year on demand of the CONVERGENCE staff) to ring, and I had it set on vibration. The calls came very early in the morning, on some days, so you had to be ready. I left it on the keyboard near the bed. After two hums, it would start a ringtone, waking me up out of bed.

My sleep was shot, and I was a wreck. Now I was so stressed out that my hand was flying up in the middle of the night and hitting the headboard like it had a mind of its own.  This was proof of all the more reason why I needed to sleep in, and blow off the viewing on this place I'd never want anyway. I'd rationalized the viewing trip as an excuse to get out there and scope out the area, but now I realized it was a total waste of time. 

 

RING A LING… IT'S FOR YOU!  

Then, a small handful of hours later, I DREAMED that my cell phone was in my hand, vibrating! I actually FELT the vibration… starting at my hand and moving through most of my body. I'd already had something weird happen with my hand earlier that same night, flying against the headboard, and now it was happening again… so of course, I paid attention and woke up immediately. 

It was so realistic that right there in bed, with the covers up around my face, I pulled my hand up to my head, like there was a phone in it, and was saying "Hello? Hello?" 

Then I realized there was no phone… it was a dream… the second weird event associated with that same hand in one night. I looked at the clock and I still had enough time to go to the meeting. The adrenaline rush of trying not to miss a phone call, and be fully alert to speak to whomever, now had me wide awake… so I sullenly went through the motions of getting dressed.

The whole way to the viewing, I was grumbly and miserable. Traffic annoyed me, to the point that I was privately mouthing off at the typical obnoxious drivers, and as I got up into the mountain roads, one part of me was saying "Wow, this is pretty cool," but the other part was saying, "This is WAY too remote for what I want." By this point I'd already looked at several other places in the Topanga mountains, closer to Santa Monica, and they were all too small, but they were also all a lot closer to Santa Monica and civilization. 

 

I WAS LATE… BUT SO WHAT? 

I was so cavalier about the viewing that I didn't leave myself enough time… and arrived nine minutes late! As I got to the driveway, a black SUV was coming down, and there wasn't enough space for both of us, so I kept on driving on the road, then went and turned around.

Little did I realize that the SUV had been the realtor, who was now leaving. Out of a 30-minute drive, complete with all sorts of random traffic, where I did not make wrong turns and knew where I was going, I still somehow managed to pass the mouth of the driveway at the EXACT MOMENT that she was coming down. It only takes a few seconds to get down the driveway… so the window was very precise.

If I hadn't seen her just as she was leaving, I couldn't prove I'd been almost on time… because now I knew what she was driving. And that wasn't the only reason why I had to be late… 

I drove up to the top and got out of my car, seeing two people inside, but feeling too awkward to go up to the door. The guy inside came to the door and said hello to me — and it turned out that he was the owner's son, the principal person responsible for the whole thing. If I had been on time, we might never have spoken.

 

OK, MAYBE I WAS WRONG… TOTALLY WRONG!

Once I got inside I was blown away… it was a great place, and the views were indeed quite a pleasure, as is almost always the case when you're in a high-floor room in a hotel, up on a mountain, et cetera. Furthermore, the owner's son was unbelievably kind. I ended up being the only person he'd ever met or spoken to… all the other applicants had only dealt with the realtor. Talk about luck! (Actually not… try synchronicity!) 

I immediately went from being completely against the idea of moving there to overwhelmed that such a thing was even possible. It only cost just over a hundred bucks more than I was already paying, and since it was remote, I wasn't getting a 'steal of a deal' — I just happened to be one of those people who didn't NEED to drive to work, and therefore wouldn't be bothered by the extra driving. 

Other places were NOT like this. I'd viewed one place that was a 'yurt,' and was charming, but basically amounted to a single-room tent with a hardwood floor and vinyl walls at 1800 a month and 2 months' security. Another place was lovingly called the 'Hobbit House' and was literally big enough for a room to hold the bed, a hall where you can put a computer desk, and a square hole you had to climb down through on a ladder to access a kitchen and bathroom that was barely big enough to turn around in. It was probably less than 300 square feet.

Another place I'd looked at sounded great on paper… it was right next to a health food store and within walking distance of some shops in downtown Topanga, well known for its spiritual / hippie flavor. Though I haven't used intoxicants since 1992, I still like the 'alternative' crowd, which is why I'd lived in Rosendale when I was still in New York. 

Nonetheless, for 1800 a month you rented the top or bottom floor of a teensy-weensy little house that didn't even have a doorway separating the two levels… just a wide-open stairwell. The whole top floor had an atrocious red shag carpet and a 15-degree slope towards the far right wall.  Space-wise it'd be like living in a shoebox, and to have someone else either downstairs or upstairs? I don't think so.

 

GRATITUDE TURNS TO PARANOIA

I hadn't believed I could GET a house rental of any decent caliber for what I wanted to pay. And yet, through this very bizarre series of synchronicities (which I had no idea were for a higher good at the time, since I was so miserable,) I now had been exposed to the possibility of a whole new reality.  

Then, because this was so much better than any other option I'd looked at, I quickly became totally paranoid that it wasn't going to work. Now I was thinking, "No matter WHO this guy is that I have to share the house with, I'll find a way to make it work… this is just too good to pass up." 

It got even better when I realized that he was actually a unique combination — an open-hearted, Ascension-ready guy who ALSO had healthy boundaries, as well as musical talent and a history in the music industry.

Now I was going through absolute anxiety and torment for each day that I didn't have a solid answer about whether I could move in. The whole time, my dream guidance said I had nothing to worry about, it was already a done deal. I was NOT convinced… I just couldn't handle the idea of allowing myself to believe it would happen, and then losing it, so I kept on looking at other places and tried to remain totally detached.

More days went by and there was a wrinkle with my application. I found out that the horrific three-year battle I had endured with identity theft had left a stain on my credit report, long after I thought I'd fought and won. (I cleared it once I found out about it, but that didn't help me in this case.) 

My father stepped up to the plate and saved the day, co-signing for me and going through his own incredible series of Herculean struggles to get eight pages signed, notarized and faxed from the bank when he had absolutely no time to do it. In the meantime, I was on a crashing deadline, with other prospective tenants breathing down the realtor's neck, trying to entice her to dump me and go with them instead.

It was a great opportunity for a healing between Dad and me, and it paid off, as I DID end up getting the place after all. Struggle leads to cooperation, which leads to mutual growth. 

 

JUST BECAUSE YOU GET IT, DOESN'T MEAN YOU GET IT… 

Here's the next thing that happened. Sure, the views were amazing at first, and the place seemed gigantic compared to my old apartment… but you'd be amazed how quickly the mind adjusts to its settings. If you ask for a miracle and you get it, that doesn't mean that you GET IT. 

The thing people don't seem to understand is that material things will NEVER make you happy. You still must CHOOSE to be happy once those things arrive. I was often surprised to hear my housemate say that one of the best benefits to having me here was in my continual reminders to him of how nice it is to have a view, and the appreciation of the natural setting we were in.  Without these 'reminders,' it becomes routine, and quickly forgotten.

My readings coined the phrase 'the Fool's Equation' for this exact dilemma. The 'equation' goes like this:

(X) => HAPPINESS

 

What are we really saying here? This first part of the equation means, "If I get (X), then I will be happy."  People slavishly believe the Fool's Equation as if it were a truth handed down from Heaven. That is the basis of the delusion around The Secret.

My first huge experience of it was like this: 

(GET ON ART BELL) => HAPPINESS

 

Back in the early years I knew getting on Coast to Coast with Art Bell was the ultimate 'brass ring' for anyone in my field… elevating you from a hole-in-the-wall website to a top-drawer public figure with exposure to millions of people. I thought for sure that once I got on Art Bell, my work would take off, people would be trafficking my site like never before, and my message would finally get some traction… so I might not feel as if I was putting out so much free stuff, and untold hours of research, for no one to enjoy.

Instead, I got 400 emails in 2 days, most of which I didn't have time to answer, a momentary surge of hits, and then it all died down as if nothing had happened. I soon realized I was just another guest, on just another night, and people were going to continue tuning in each night to see who was 'new' — and I wasn't it.

Then I got on AGAIN just two weeks later. Again I got about 400 emails, and a momentary traffic spike. Since I didn't update regularly, they had no reason to keep coming back. I had enough reading requests to keep me busy for a while, but other than that, NOTHING happened… it all died off.

I realized, after this, that all I'd really wished for was to get on Coast… but then I'd ASSUMED that all these other bountiful things would naturally follow. It's only very recently that I've finally realized that "the more you give, the more you get" when it comes to your website… and that's the one thing you want to put the greatest energy and focus into if you want to reach the largest number of people.

Forget about the radio shows, the conferences, even the movie… ultimately, they all come back to that dot-com address you give them, and you want to give them a reason to keep coming back.  Tell me I'm wrong — I'd be glad not to have to work this much, on some levels, but I see the value! 

 

AMERICAN IDOL 

Take the "American Idol" show as another example of the Fool's Equation. You're far less likely to get on that show than you are to get struck by lightning while eating peanut butter off your pinky finger, and if you actually DO make it in, the chances are that at least one of the three judges, especially Simon Cowell, is going to completely tear you down and ridicule you in front of 30 million of your closest friends. Your ultimate dream could become your worst nightmare.

Yet until you actually get to that moment where you are being ridiculed, and you've come so far only to sink so low, you might have never imagined how you'd actually feel, as the world's newest laughing-stock. 

[The reason why Sanjaya has done so well, in my opinion, is that he has done such an amazing job of taking the abuse, over and over again, week after week, and still ends up smiling and being so open and pure of heart. However, anyone who says that voting for him will 'ruin the show' is delusional, as he actually IS a decent singer — they have just been giving him dry mixes with no effects on the microphone, and he's not experienced enough to hold the microphone at a steady distance from his mouth, so his voice remains consistsently audible.

The show wins no matter what, as all this controversy only further drives up the ratings, and regardless of who wins, they own that person and profit from whatever success he or she might gain. I watched ALL the contestants recently on YouTube, as part of my research for this blog, and discovered that they were ALL very capable pop vocalists. Not one of them was 'bad', and the whole idea of trying to say who is 'better' and who is 'worse' is really quite sad, as their level of talent is obviously not the key factor… they're all talented.

Actually, I just now listened to his performance of "Dancing Cheek to Cheek" last night, after writing the above, and it was actually the least quality vocal performance I'd heard from him yet… his pitch was quite shaky on a variety of the notes, he didn't use enough breath to get the notes out, and it clearly wasn't his best song choice. That's the first time I'd have to agree with those saying he's not up to par with the other singers. Nonetheless I applaud him for showing such a great example to others of how best to respond under attack… by loving the 'enemy' as a part of yourself.] 

 

HOW TO MAKE IT WORK FOR YOU… 

 

The problem with the Fool's Equation is that everyone has it backwards. In fact, a more correct rendering is like this:

HAPPINESS => (X)

 

The idea here is that if you cultivate a loving space within yourself FIRST, then the manifestations will be "attracted" to that loving space. This is actually NOT the same as stating your intention and then believing the Universe will satisfy it, and pile on the riches.

The key is to break down the whole idea that your happiness depends on any particular manifestation happening. The longer you believe that, the longer your Higher Self will have to hold off the best manifestations, because you haven't gotten the point yet.

Remember… even if you DO get what you want, you still end up CHOOSING whether you will be happy or not. I got on Art Bell, which I used to think was my ultimate goal, but then once I did, everything stayed the same, and I really didn't feel any differently. No matter what someone wishes for, getting it satisfied doesn't necessarily produce any happiness.

This is also what my readings have called 'Elvis-Marilyn Syndrome.' You can look at the most famous people in our history, artists known by their first name alone, and find, again and again, that they were racked with depression, despite having all the money and fame they could ask for. Now we've had two NEW reminders with Britney and Anna Nicole, the more recent equivalents. Thankfully Britney did not commit suicide and appears to be on the mend. 

So, if you can demonstrate to your Higher Self that you GET IT, and that you can live in happiness WITHOUT the material things, then lo and behold, they manifest… in better ways than you had imagined. I had this house manifest, I didn't even realize it would happen, and then there it was.

However, once I started losing the fascination, losing the love, losing the happiness and becoming irritated by all the stresses I was enduring, like the three-week struggle to get a working payment gateway on this site (which now works great), I contracted poison ivy on my hands… and my irritation was externalized.

Only once I came back around to recapturing the original bliss and wonderment with this manifestation, and my place in it, did the hands quiet back down. When I lost the bliss again, the hands acted back up, and once I again resolved it and got back to my peace, (this is only 2 days ago now,) the hands again calmed back down. Very holographic! The closer we get to 2012, the more these kinds of things will keep happening… which is all the more reason why you want to focus on "seeking the heart of the self" as your foremost goal. 

 

MY MOTHER'S OWN 'HOUSE' EXAMPLE

An equally miraculous turn of events happened to my mother. She was looking for a house in Upstate New York, knew what she could afford, and found something that was really too small, but the best she could do. It was quite a compromise. The rooms were barely big enough as it was, and she wanted to put closets in there. 

At the same time, she's done so much good for others that it really didn't seem fair to have so much money go into such an insufficient house. I wished, in my own way, that she could have something happen to her like what happened to me… but it didn't seem to be in the cards.

Then she found out that the foundation of the house was in bad shape… but only because there were very severe rains on the exact day that the property assessor came by to view it with her. Had that synchronicity not happened, she would have ended up buying the house, and having to discover the hidden horror of a useless, degrading basement for herself. She was able to exit the contract and even get the deposit back.

In frustration, she shared her story with a few of her voice students. As it turned out, one of them was an architect living in the same area Mom was looking at houses in… and offered to GIVE my mother, with full legal title and rights, a 10-acre plot of land… worth a hundred thousand dollars. Furthermore, she would help her build a custom house to the latest, hippest 'green' standards, and actually end up with much MORE house and still have a healthy amount left over, AFTER it was all paid for!

Again… my mother did not say, "I want an angel investor to come by and give me a big parcel of free land, where I want it to be, so I can build an amazing house there." Nor did I say, "I want to live on a mountaintop in a nice big house."

Instead, we both treated our Higher Self like a maiden… tried to find out what its needs and desires were, and then follow the 'guidance'. If you do this, then miraculous things will happen. 

The most difficult aspect of growing up with my mother, and even going to visit her recently, was that she continually believed that she was at the whims of a financial fate she only had partial control over. The lack of money was a REALITY that no humming, chanting or visualization could make disappear.

I got her free will permission to write about this incident before I went and did it, because for her, this is literally the most important 'proof of concept' for the idea of positive financial karma that she's ever experienced. No manifestation of this scope has ever occurred before. She's again reading a Seth book, "Seth Speaks," to help her readjust her whole thinking, and really allow the conditioned responses to ease. 

So many people in this world are in poverty that it is all too easy to let those thought-currents come into your mind… but I do believe that the more you focus on service, and clean up your attitude, the more prosperity will flow in your life… as money IS a metaphor of vital energy, to a certain degree.  

 

KARMA IS A MANDATE… IN BOTH DIRECTIONS

It's easy to obsess on negative karma… you do something 'bad,' i.e. infringe on the free will of another by attempting to manipulate or control them for your own gain, and then you get hit with an arrow. Basic universal law.

Don't forget that the Law of Exponents doesn't just work with people joining groups. The Law of One series ALSO said that there were two things you could do, in your own life, that would create an exponential strengthening of the energy you can call upon for your own manifestations to happen, in alignment with the Higher Self's larger plan for you:

  1. Seek love in the moment. Each additional seeking of love in the moment exponentially strengthens your calling.
  2. Compare your present moment to others like it in the past. When you go through either a painful OR a positive experience, each similar experience you can bring up from your past history adds another exponential degree to the strength of your calling.  

So, when you keep seeking the love in the moment, and struggling to integrate your experiences in the present by being aware of how they relate to your past, you will make it more and more likely that apparent miracles, like the house manifestations my mother and I both had drop into our laps, can happen for you.

Remember that Karma is a LAW… and if you do loving and helpful things for others, consistently enough, it is MANDATORY that the Universe will find a way to return the favor. As Richard Hoagland said recently when he came to visit me, "You must be doing SOMETHING right, as this is just amazing."  He normally doesn't talk metaphysics like this, but words like 'good karma' were definitely floating around.

 

IF IT GETS YOU FULFILLING YOUR PURPOSE, THAT'S A GOOD THING… 

The effect this manifestation has had on me is very visible on this site. We changed the template, got it far more professional-looking, I wrote an amazing new piece of meditation music called "The Journey," Larry and I finally released The Science of Peace after a two-year embargo, and I began writing new material almost every weekday. 

Our site traffic is still way less than what I expect it will be once we do a show on Coast… each article gets about 300 hits a day at the moment… but we're building up the criteria right now for this to be a good metaphysical place to hang your hat, belly up to the bar and have a few drinks. Tastes great, less filling, non-alcoholic metaphysical buzz. Drink in the LOVE… and you might learn something along the way! 

 

MAKE UP YOUR MIND…

So let's say you've balanced your karma, earned some positive credit, and have a vision of how you can best serve the planet. Don't forget that the Higher Forces do need some kind of structure.

If you yourself have no idea what you want, then how will you know when it manifests? Think about it!

If I hadn't at least vaguely known I might like the house in the middle of nowhere, would I have just dusted off those weird events with my hand hitting the headboard, and getting a 'cell phone' call in bed, and ended up with something totally different, and probably much less than what was possible? 

It sounds a little ominous when the Law of One series says our NUMBER ONE responsibility after we leave a physical incarnation, in the vast majority of cases, is to FORGIVE OURSELVES for the OPPORTUNITIES that we KNOWINGLY MISSED.

In that after-life state, we see what WOULD have been if we had just TRUSTED more, processed the fear, and been willing to take the chances that came along. More often than not they are Divine gifts — but we always have the free-will ability to turn them down. Imagine if I'd ended up in another dreary, noisy, crowded apartment, simply because I chose NOT to wake up that morning when all the weird synchronicity suggested I should! 

So again, if the Higher Forces can't infringe on your free will, that means they can't give you something if you don't at least VAGUELY state that you want it.

You don't want to pimp out your Higher Self like a whore, but neither do you want to whine in your indecision while never actually making a choice about what might be a good direction, if it fits with the deeper plan for your life.

In my case I knew I wanted a nice place to live, but the final mandate was when I said, "Where is the BEST place I can live to serve the Work?"

I really do feel that I've arrived at that 'best place' now, and intend to stay a while. 

Again, the key at this point in the game is to clarify your intent. 

 

 CLARIFY YOUR INTENT

"How do I get this to work in my own life, for the positive," you may ask? The author of the esoteric mystery school texts we cited in Part III has a whole passage about this, which I will dig up at some point soon. The key is in very clearly stating your intention… so clearly that it cannot be misconstrued. You want to try to tear apart your statement of intent as if you were a trickster, trying to find a way to turn it into a 'leprechaun wish.' 

The classic example of the 'leprechaun wish' is when a horny guy says he wants to see through women's clothing, and then he gets his wish… but now he seeks skeletons and internal organs instead.

Similarly, if you say "I would really like a job I'm happier with," you may find that you suddenly get fired. Another close friend of mine kept saying, repeatedly, "I need a really, really big change," and she got into a catastrophic accident that almost killed her. You have to be really careful about making a very strong intention, and insure that you're treating your Higher Self like a maiden in the process. Find a way that your personal will can align with the Divine will, set a direction, and then be on the lookout for what manifests… and lose the fear! 

The key phrase you want to make sure you include, when using the power of intent for service-to-others purposes, is "…for the highest and best good of all involved."

If you set an intention and say "I want a promotion at my job," your Higher Self may 'put out' for you, but in the process someone else might get fired… and then you accrue karma that ultimately leads to you HATING your promotion, and quitting in disgust. The money might not have been worth the extra sacrifice, and you end up learning another lesson. [Of course, none of us have ever had that happen.. we're way too cool for such karmic mishaps… Not!]

It really boils down to trust. The more you can trust the synchronicity, trust the dreams, trust the guidance that comes to you, the more miracles will occur. If you DO want to call in a particular manifestation, insure that you also request that it not hurt others in the process… and if your Higher Self feels that it is beneficial for you to have, then it will happen.

Nonetheless, the surprises are even better… when you have a fair idea of what you wanted, you're not being high-maintenance or nit-picky, your focus is on serving the greatest good, and then you get totally surprised. The whole concept of Ascension, and what's heading our way in 2012, is the ULTIMATE example of this. Imagine graduating from 3D — finally getting the lesson, after all this time — and moving into a realm ONE HUNDRED TIMES more harmonious than what your life is like now! 

Imagine having all the Ascended abilities ready at your fingertips. Imagine a nearly incorruptible body of Light. Imagine instantaneous telepathic communication with others. Imagine a world with no secrets, no lies, no deception, where everyone loves you and is happy to see you. This is not a joke, not a fantasy… all the precursor events to this change are happening around us right now!  

[Guess what time the website software told me I had posted this update when I added the above paragraph at the last minute? 11:11 am!]

 

Here's your inspirational homework… watch this video, even if you've already seen it before. The song is one of my favorites. When you hear Steve Winwood sing about his relationship with "Valerie," go ahead and let the words remind you of your own connection to your Higher Self — and how the two of you can call on each other and come together for your own strength:


DUN?  

Well, by now this is getting a bit long, so let's git 'er dun. If I start feeling bored about what I'm writing, that's a good sign that it's time to quit. Or maybe that's just a signal of satisfaction, like when you've eaten enough and want to get up from the table. Unless I choose to get back on my soapbox for some more 'Secret' rhetoric, this might be the last of the 'Deeper Secret' series. 

I actually had some really good 2012 and Ascension tangents spin out from this version, which I've since saved and will use soon. What started it all was perhaps the most important reason to seek the positive at this time… namely that we are at the end of a cycle, and if you don't clearly make a decision one way or the other about whether you seek the positive or negative path, you might end up having 25 thousand more years of third-density reincarnations to be able to make up your mind, one way or the other.

It's VERY easy to make the grade for Ascension, but you DO have to be slightly more motivated towards helping people rather than controlling them. That's what it all comes down to.

So, when I saw that article in the LA Times last November, that's when it truly became clear how potentially destructive 'The Secret' could be for people's long-term path. I really didn't know that such a simple thing as showing someone a poster of money could make them that much more selfish. It only further validated my concerns about the 'Secret' film, but I kept my opinions to myself for a long, long time. Now that the film is so widespread, it's better to offer a more enlightened perspective on its philosophy than to just remain silent.

All I can hope for is that the new devotees of this film don't get so lured in by the promise of quick, easy money, shaking down their Higher Self like a whore in the process, that they fail to realize how much more there is to 'reality' than just begging Father/Mother God for some candy…
