The way that banks work!
An old Native American wanted a loan for $500.
The banker pulled out the loan application.
"What are you going to do with the money?" he asks the Indian.
"Buy Silver, make jewelry, and sell it," was the response.
"What have you got for collateral?"
"Don't know collateral," replied the Indian
"Well that's something of value that would cover the cost of the loan. |
"Have you got any vehicles?"
"Yes. 1949 Chevy pickup," replied the Indian
The banker shook his head, "How about livestock?"
"Yes, I have a horse," replied the Indian
"How old is it?" the banker asks.
"Don't know, has no teeth," replies the Indian
Finally the banker decided to make the $500 loan.
Several weeks later the old man was back in the bank.
He pulled out a roll of bills, "Here to pay." he said.
He then handed the banker the money to pay his loan off.
"What are you going to do with the rest of that money?" the banker asks.
"Put in hogan", replied the Indian
"Why don't you deposit it in my bank," the banker asked.
"Don't know deposit," replied the Indian
"You put the money in our bank and we take care of it for you.
Whenever you want to use it, you can withdraw it."
The old Indian leaned across the desk and asks the banker...
"What you got for collateral?" (FB post by Denis Cooney)
What is funny about this joke is how the Native American calls the banker on a standard practice of banking. What is not funny about this joke is how we just accept that it's okay for bankers to earn money for themselves by charging interest on our money, and how we just accept no one else can do it!
The point is, there are many, many memes we have been programmed with to such a degree that we no longer question their legitimacy!!! It is exactly these sort of memes that keep us living within a subtle form of slavery. When we believe these memes are truth, we allow ourselves to be kept in bondage!
What's wrong with bankers charging interest on money they loan out to people, you ask? In order to answer that question, we need to look at what money actually is. Money is a system by which products and services are given values so that these products and services can be traded equitably. While the concept isn't all bad, there can be problems with ranking products and services evenly. Any good attorney (are there any good attorneys?) can argue why something should be of greater or lesser value. My question is, where does the fair come in? Who makes that determination? Society as a whole? The rulers? God?
Let's look at a concrete example. In our society we pay medical doctors extremely well because we value their role of bringing health to the masses. While it can be argued they provide an extremely valuable service, what makes their roles as healers any more valuable than farmers? Musicians and artists? Builders? Factory workers? Fast food employees? Bankers? Should working hard be a factor in this equation? What about talent? The irony of paying doctors (and other occupations) well is the fact that we often end up with doctors who are motivated to become doctors because they will be well paid as opposed to actually having the talent and ability to be gifted healers. Do we really want to be part of a society where we are not encouraged to use our talents for the benefit of all? A society where only certain things are valued and the rest considered unworthy?
Here are some of the memes we believe that keep us in continued bondage:
- It's okay for banks to make money off our hard-earned money.
- Bankers are too big to jail. If some of them go to jail, they deserve to be in special prisons for white collar criminals.
- Certain occupations are worth more than others.
- It's a dog-eat-dog, competitive sort of world. That's natural selection or survival of the fittest.
- Our world's finances should be in the control of people who understand money--the bankers.

What can we do to change this situation? The best thing we can do is take a critical look at our own actions and question why we do what we do. Do we believe it's important to work really hard/"smart" in order to have the finer things in life? Do we pursue such goals regardless of whether or not other people or things get hurt? Do we define others who don't have as much as we do as "lazy" and "worthless"? Does mindless materialism and competition make us happy?
We do not have to be mindless, programmed zombies. We can question our own actions. When we come up with answers we do not like, we can take the simple step of changing the way we do things. Our actions do not need to be thoughtless. Our actions need to be conscious.
All it takes to change the world is to change yourself.

Declaring war has not helped us take back our power. All it has done is cost precious lives and resources. Killing the supposed mastermind of this plot, Osama bin Laden, has not overcome the ideology behind the destruction. We feel the chains of this every day and live in fear of even more destruction.
This needs to stop. We were not born into this world to be slaves to weakness and powerlessness. We were born in this era to take responsibility for all those things that happen in our world, both good and bad, and learn from those things. We have waited far to long for those in power to change our world for the better, and quite honestly, it is not going to happen. Creation is not the responsibility of a few but the responsibility of us all!
Do not grieve for those who lost their lives on 9/11! We absolutely miss them, yet all grief does is keep us slaves to helplessness. I don't believe those who died would want their deaths to take away our power. Rather, their sacrifice will be in vain if we do not recognize the lessons they died to teach us.
Let us make this resolution. As we remember all those who lost their lives on 9/11, let us never forget that we have the power to learn! We have the power to make better choices! We have the power to create the sort of world we would like to live in, for ourselves and our children! Allow the light to enter in this day so the world may be a better place for everyone!

I am sitting with my daughter in the delivery room, waiting for her to deliver my first grandchild. It is definitely a new experience for me, both pain and bliss rolled into one. Pain because my daughter is in pain. Bliss because...well, let me give you more background on myself and this pregnancy.
A couple of weeks before we found out my daughter was pregnant, I had this experience. I was working my retail job where I was folding and straightening baby clothes. All of a sudden, I thought how much I wanted to buy baby clothes. I thought it was strange to think such a thing at this point in my life. That's when it hit me. There was a presence beside me--a spirit, a soul! I knew it was my future grandchild, and he/she was communicating with me!
Ironically, I went home and told my daughter. I honestly thought it might be my oldest son and his very serious girlfriend who would be expecting. I wanted to tell someone about my experience so they could verbally back me up later if it turned out to be real.
About two weeks after my experience, my daughter came to me and said, "Mom, I'm pregnant. I guess you were right. We just didn't know it would be me!"
After that, I was able to "talk" to the baby periodically. I could tell how excited this baby was to be coming to have this earth experience. I let the baby know how excited I was that it was coming.
As I sit with my daughter in her hospital room, I feel this little girl tell me she is almost here! I feel her pushing, straining against the ever growing contractions, but also knowing that the pain is enabling her freedom. Not much longer now!
The joy in my heart and the tears in my eyes tell me she is ready for this new journey to begin. I, too, am ready for this new life. I will do what I can to allow her to grow into the person she desires to be.

We find one person who seems to know what's going on. We listen to the news he puts out. His message resonates deep within so we begin to listen to what else he has to say. This may go on for days, weeks, months, but inevitably one day we wake up and realize that not everything this person says is truth. At that point, we become disenchanted and point to the flaws in the argument in order to justify why we are no longer following this leader. We look for new truths and usually find someone different to guide us. This cycle seems to continue on in a never-ending series of frustrations and wheel-spinning.
What we fail to see and acknowledge is that we are all a combination of light and dark. While it's true that we often allow one side to overshadow the other, both sides are still there. For some reason, we expect our leaders to be perfectly light. This is where the problem starts. No one is perfectly light! It is unrealistic to expect perfection from someone exactly like our flawed selves.
So what is the answer to this leadership dilemma? In my way of thinking, the problem stems from where we look for a leader. Even though most of us understand that truth lies within, we look outside ourselves for answers. In doing so, we fail to take responsibility for that truth within.
For example, we hear someone else's message. The first thing we tend to do with this new information is to take it inside and decide whether or not it is something that seems or feels "right". If we decide it is not truth, we drop the information and go on to something else. If we decide the information is true for us, we then choose to open up to other insights this individual has to offer. While this is not necessarily a bad way to do things, it inevitably leads to disappointment when the other person eventually exposes his dark side. The point is, what we follow in this scenario is information we have obtained outside ourselves.
If truth really does reside within, we fail ourselves every time we look outside for our answers. When we follow someone else's truth, we deny ourselves the ability to create our own glorious new world!
The leaders we are searching for are US! We need to stand up for our own truth! The reason our world is not changing is because we fail to take responsibility for who we are in each moment! We look to others to stand up when it is really our job to stand up for ourselves!
I am the person I have been waiting for. All I need to do now is consult my own heart for the answers I seek. When I begin to take responsibility for myself, my whole world will change.
Become the leader that is inside! When that leader is unchained, the world will be a very different place.

My conundrum started with all the predictions of big things potentially happening this month (May 2013). From David Wilcock's dream revelation to Lindsey William's dire predictions about the economic collapse to Clif High's May wujo on a potential coastal global event to Cobra's energy portal opening toward the end of the month my head is swimming in details. While not all the scenarios are negative, I have had the most difficult time grappling with Clif High's predictions for a global coastal event.
For those of you who may not know who Clif High is, he is a gifted computer programmer who helped develop data mining software initially designed to predict stock market trends using keyword searches, but who discovered along the way this data could predict much more than stock trends. What concerns me is the possibility the data he has uncovered for years about vast changes in coastlines could potentially fit with the timing of things this month.
Lindsey Williams is a minister with connections among some of the powers that were. He often knows details about things that are going to happen, and lately he has been revealing details of the planned financial collapse. The thing is, I can dismiss much of what Lindsey says because he is pretty much giving a verbatim account of how the powers that were are planning things to be--very different from how they often end up because of the vast numbers of people finally waking up to the world's financial slavery system.
Clif High's stuff is harder for me to invalidate. However, somewhere the idea has come to me that Clif's software reads the energy of what gets put out on the web. This would encompass both the ideas of what the powers that were are planning for the world in order to keep themselves in power as well as the fear they are placing in the rest of us that certain things will come to pass. I personally am convinced the powers that were are trying to begin World War III and create global catastrophe in order to kill off billions of us and physically enslave the rest through martial law. This is where their New World Order crap comes into play--one world government, one world currency, etc.
The prevailing fear is their last attempt to create the world of their dreams (and the world of our nightmares). As thieves and guardians of some of the world's greatest spiritual truths, they understand that thought can be a powerful tool of creation. Even though they lose power with each day that passes, they cling to the one thing that could potentially roll the ball back into their side of the court--fear.
If the powers that be can keep us fighting among ourselves--over perceived tyrants and border disputes and immigration and marriage and guns and drugs and anything else--they can keep us full of fear and negativity. If they make use believe scriptural calamities are coming our way, our fears could potentially come to pass. If the powers that were can convince us their "solutions" are the only way we can survive as a planet, our fear will continue to keep them in power.
It does not have to be this way! Are we full of fear? Are we full of fighting and war? I know I'm not. I have been given the vast ability to love--even those who are often considered by society as unlovable. I believe every other person on this planet has this same potential. It is only a matter of learning how to tap into it. By standing up to the fear and saying, "I love you so much I am willing to help you succeed," we can overcome the negativity and change the course of the planet.
The time for separation has passed. It is time to step back into compassion, step back into kindness, step back into love. We can keep the world from becoming an uninhabitable wasteland and live in freedom and integrity. It is a question of allowing our love to become bigger than our fear. It is a matter of changing our energy--our frequency--to one of love and peace.

The first real job I ever really wanted was that of writer--something I decided when I was twelve. I love to lose myself in a good book, and I thought it would be great to evoke the same sort of feelings in others. (I have always had some rather daydreaming/escapist tendencies.) In some respects, I do see myself as a writer even though it is not something I earn a living at.
In college, I got a BA in psychology, thinking I wanted to be a counselor and help people deal with their problems. That plan fell by the wayside after I had children and decided I wanted to raise them full time. Getting divorced put a big kink in the professional parent role, although I have to admit the jobs I took at the point were ones that allowed me to continue to put my kids first. I ended up as a daycare teacher. It paid the bills but with very little money left over and almost no professional credibility. Ironically I did get offered management positions several times (which I declined because I did not want the added stress for not much extra pay). At one point I even managed to get a temporary teaching certification which allowed me to be the lead teacher in a Georgia Pre K classroom, but as I knew I didn't want to be a teacher forever I did not finish the requirements to get my permanent certification.
At present, I am blessed to be able to work part time. When I first made the decision, I thought I would have time to actually focus on writing. However, even though I often have great ideas my ADD tendencies make it difficult to sit around and focus on any one major project. At times, I am extremely frustrated with myself and my lack of ambition. I even try to figure out what it is that drives me--what it is I am passionate about, but no one thing really stands out to me.
As I pondered this subject yet again this morning, something profound came to me. In this society, we are taught it is important to have goals and to be something. Usually being something requires you to define yourself in some way. For example, I am a writer or a teacher or a business person, etc. Absolutely nothing I know of in this world is something I feel I want to pursue for the rest of my life. There are times I do want to be a writer. There are times I want to be a teacher. There are times I want to be in business for myself. There are others professions I am attracted to as well. If I am to perfectly honest with myself, however, I do not wish to limit myself to any one of these things. The thought that occurred to me as I drove my youngest son to school was, maybe it is not necessary to be so focused on defining myself. Maybe I need to stop looking at things the world deems as necessary and just allow myself to be--whatever that is in any given moment.
The very act of defining who you are creates automatic limitation. Somewhere deep in my heart, I know I am an unlimited and powerful being. I do not wish to be in a box--even a box of my own choosing and design.
The reason living in the state of now is such a powerful place to be is because you are in the moment, choosing from one second to the next what makes you happy. It is not something you have to think about. It is something you feel, and feelings are where the magic happens.
I choose not to designate myself as writer or teacher or business woman or anything else. I am all those things and more. I do not need to decide what I want to be when I grow up. I am, and that is enough.

Let's look at the difference between pricing the ends in 99 cents verses even dollar amounts. When I was growing up, my folks always taught me to add a penny to the price of anything that ended in 99 cents (common sense, right?). If an item is listed at $14.99, in reality it is $15. While a good many people understand this concept, many, many more do not! What I discovered when I was adding up peoples' items is that most of them do not add on the penny! I was totally amazed at the people who thought they were adding up the prices in their heads only to discover they were way off! Say for example they were purchasing five items. They would look at the $14.99 and think it was $14! When they did this for five items, their totals were $5 off (without even looking at taxes)! I would patiently explain to them how to add the penny so their totals wouldn't be off! This is why I appreciated the even dollars amounts that Ron John made standard practice at Penney's (and why I was appalled to see some of our merchandise on sale this week for $4.99)!!! To me, this can be a very deceptive practice, and I am definitely not into deception.
Then look at the "sales" and coupons. The prices were much higher with the old pricing strategy. I was on the team that changed all the prices at my store in January of 2012, and I was truly amazed by what I saw! The vast majority of the listed prices were literally cut in half!!! With the old pricing strategy, prices changed almost daily, give or take a couple of dollars at the twice as high price. "Sales" consisted of a few less dollars on certain items only. One of my gifts is the ability to spot patterns, and one of the patterns I noticed consistently was that the really good coupons ($10 off $10 or more or $25 or more) were at times the overall prices in the store were at their highest levels. Of course, they would have their limited number of "Door Buster" items to draw in the crowds, but unless you were only buying door busters, you did not come out ahead--the store did! You only believed you were making out like a bandit, but it kept you happy, didn't it? Again, to me, this is extremely deceptive and I do not like it!
Yes, I am in rant mode! Why? Because I was in my store shopping today and I saw they were marking everything up twice or more than what the every day price was! The coupons have been out for weeks already, and you can't make a profit with coupons and extremely low prices. Yes, folks! You are getting your damn coupons back! Hope the sticker shock doesn't come back to bite you in the ass!!! If you ever decide to get a new tattoo, might I suggest the word "sucker" in big, bold letters on your forehead!!!
My point with my very wordy essay on corporate greed and deception? People don't like change, and that is why the world continues to stay in a state of corruption and decline!!! You can look at this world through rose-colored glasses and con yourself into believing that everything is fine, but until you understand that change is the only thing that will allow the world to lose the deception and become better the world will continue to go down the tubes!
It's time! Take off the rose-colored glasses and see the world for the corrupt, deceptive place it is! The more willing you are to identify what's wrong with your community the more likely you are to change it! It is time to let go of all that is familiar. It is not working for anyone but the 1%. The world has untapped resources available. Be willing to look for them and use them as we work to bring about a golden age on this dusty and tired planet.

The thing is, I am in process of letting go of judgments--against both others and myself. It is not a quick and easy task as I have been taught to judge everything--even things as inane as burping in public or people with tattoos! The judgments we have of ourselves, each other, and the world are directly tied to the labels we give to various things. Labels are one way of categorizing and organizing the information in our brains.
As judgmental human beings, we attempt to limit our own actions to those things we have been taught are "good" or "right". This is the step where we stop growing because we have mentally chosen to limit our behaviors. (This does not mean I think everyone should go around doing every "bad" thing they thought about doing. It does mean we learn to hear the wisdom in our hearts and follow that guidance.)
I have come to the point of my development where I no longer want to be labeled. (This, to me, equates to putting me in a box.) Just as I do not want to be thought of as "bad", I also do not want to be thought of as "good", nor do I want to be labelled woman, daughter, sister, mother, friend, enemy, heterosexual, christian, or anything else! What I desire to do is BE, without dictates, mandates or directives. I want to be free to follow the moment by moment guidance of my heart without the distraction of labels!
I especially don't want to be labeled Democrat or Republican! (Them's fightin' words for sure in my book!) If you must call me something, tell everyone I'm in the Allowing Party. It's a party that doesn't care if you are Democrat or Republican (or Libertarian). It doesn't care of you are good or bad, intelligent or stupid, black or white, or any other limiting thing. It's an all-inclusive party where we are free to follow the guidance and wisdom in our own hearts. It's a place where we are allowed to BE.

Change is in the air! Within the past couple of days, an incident occurred in my life that made me extremely angry (much too angry for the apparent situation if the truth be known). Without going into detail, let's just say I was (once again) being taken advantage of, and anger hit me like a brick wall. It was as if all the anger and resentment I have carried through many lifetimes all came into focus with this one little incident.
A great deal of emotion has confronted me the past couple of weeks. Anger. Resentment. Worry. Fear. All extreme. It took listening to the wise words of someone who is also in the middle of resolving crisis to help me recognize this emotion is here to bring about the opportunity to identify old destructive patterns in order to let go of them and create something new--something better.
As I began to focus on why this little incident brought up so much anger for me, I started to see a pattern--in this lifetime and in lifetimes past. Somehow, somewhere I got the idea that I was strong and that I could (and should) take on pain so others did not have to take on so much. In other words, I have developed quite the martyr complex. In the process, I have denied myself the very things that I want in life--even denying the full power of who I am. I have spent a long time playing small so others did not have to take full responsibility for themselves.
The reality is, my martyrdom benefited no one! Not myself. Not even the others I believed I was saving from pain. The fact of the matter is, we come to this world to learn. Many of these lessons require a great deal of pain because pain makes such a big impact on our lives. The only thing my martyrdom truly did was make me resent the things I gave up in order to save others from pain!
So now it's time to make a change. The anger of my little incident has been the catalyst for me to analyze what is wrong in my life and make appropriate changes. I'm really not sure how this will all play out. I do know that it is important for me to take everything one moment at a time. I need to live each moment of now so that I can deal with those emotions as they come up and begin to change all the ways I be that are this pattern of martyrdom. It is only by letting go of my destructive patterns that I can make room for something new. Something different. Something better.
Everything in the world right now screams to me that now is the time to give up all our destructive patterns. Change is here! Let's step up and create the space for a bold, new, wonderful world! We have the power to create lasting change! We are the change we wish to see in the world!

The concept of righteousness revolves heavily around the idea of being "right". In other words, for every situation there is a right side and a wrong side. We are taught that standing in righteousness involves discerning the "right" side and then following it. The thing is, depending on the society you grow up in, what is "right" can mean different things to different people. For example, people who follow the Bible often believe being gay is a sin solely on the basis that they Bible says it is a sin. They do not take into consideration that fact that many gay people are born to and raised by good Christian people who do everything in their power to promote heterosexual relationships. Many of these gays do everything in their power to conform to what they have been taught is "right" at great personal sacrifice and expense. These people deny what is inside them--what they were born with. How can this be "right"?
Truth is very different from righteousness. Many people believe truth comes with a whole series of rules, but the fact of the matter is truth has very few rules. Truth is simply the way things are. All things exist in truth. Truth does not separate and divide. Truth is not limited to a particular view. What we believe to be "the rules" is really righteousness disguised as truth.
We have come to a point in history where the choice between righteousness and truth is key to our survival. If we continue to believe there is a right and a wrong and we must choose sides, we will allow our differences to destroy us. If we can learn to see ourselves as connected to one another and live in truth, we will no longer be bent on destroying each other for our differences and can live in peace and harmony. The advancement of all those on planet earth requires this transition out of separation and back into Oneness.
Ask yourself this vital question: will this choice bring about separation or Oneness? The choices we make today will bring us either closer or farther away from a peaceful, loving planet. Make your choices count!

Or any other label you use to define me.
What I express today
May be entirely different tomorrow.
I am not a label.
Labels are limitations--boxes,
And I was not born
To be contained.
I am all things,
And all things are me!
I was born to experience
I have lived in enough boxes
To last many lifetimes.
And that's all I need to be.

I took out a one dollar Federal Reserve Note from my purse so I had something a little more concrete to focus on. The energy coming off it was so negative and HUGE it was all I could do to continue to hold it. All my personal negativities came to the surface as well, which added to my agitation.
The first thing that dawned on me was that the energy I was feeling was not from the dollar itself. It was the energy placed on it by people who desired to use it to control others and the world. The energy was placed on it specifically to suck all the resources away from the people who used it. It was a very draining energy, and I understood it was designed to steal not only physical and financial resources but energetic resources as well.
My thought was to use my own energy to try to neutralize it. This did not work very well and I felt my efforts blocked. I then asked for inspiration and felt guided to ask Mother Earth and my friends the Elementals (spirits/energies of things in nature) to surround and neutralize the energy. This worked much better and I felt myself free to directly communicate with the dollar itself.
This dollar had a lot to say when I was finally able to communicate with it! It was upset by the fact that it had been used to control so many people and was consequently disliked by many people. It hated being in the hands of a few when it wanted to experience all different sorts of people and be used for many good endeavors. At this point, I understood money was also trapped by the same people who would enslave the vast majority of the population.
Suddenly, I felt the structure of a Ho'oponopono prayer come to me naturally. I felt the need to tell money how sorry I was that I allowed others to keep it from me and to ask its forgiveness. I thanked money for wanting to be there for me and reassured it I loved it regardless of how others had manipulated it.

The Gospel of Judas says some very different things about Judas. What is the Gospel of Judas? It is a translation of some coptic language papyrus writings which surfaced in the 1970's and was carbon dated back to A.D. 280. Although the actual text is literally fragmented, what remains is an intriguing account of the betrayal of Jesus by Judas. The text claims that Jesus and Judas were extremely good friends and that Jesus did indeed know Judas would betray him and even planned with him because this was the sacred role Judas had agreed to portray. In the Bible's context, betraying Jesus is a horrendous sin, and yet even the Bible acknowledges Jesus had to be betrayed and killed so the prophecies could be fulfilled. Consider this: if the plan of salvation required the sacrifice of Jesus, someone had to be the betrayer. Nobody likes the "bad" guy. In fact, we are all taught to hate and despise the "bad" guy and to separate ourselves from him. Why would anyone in their right mind choose to play the "bad" guy?
If life is the learning process I believe it to be, choosing to be "evil" is a difficult choice to make. Even though we are taught it is selfish and wrong to harm others, it is those acts that cause harm which usually teach us the most. Making the choice to play the "bad" guy role takes strength and courage because such a choice puts us in the center of controversy and punishment--the ultimate place of separation. It is so much easier to make the choice to be "good" and fit in. It is my belief that Judas entered into a sacred agreement when he agreed to play the bad guy role--an agreement to make himself a target so that others could learn and grow.
To all those who have made the Judas choice, I give you my unconditional love and appreciation. Thank you for your willingness to play the "bad" guy role so that my understanding and compassion could be increased. Thank you for helping me feel the depths so I could also feel the heights. Thank you for allowing me to use my gift of unconditional love to heal the planet. Your service has had tremendous benefit for the One, and I am truly grateful you made the choice to be my teacher. Namaste, my friends.

The simple answer is, "Yes!" The world is falling apart even as I write this, and it will probably get worse before it gets better. The thing is, it often takes a great deal of pain before people are willing to take notice and make changes. We live in a world where most of us are content to let responsibility go and allow others to handle the burdens. Unfortunately, most of the people we have given the responsibility of running our world have let us down in big ways. We are suffering. The earth is suffering. The world seems to be going crazy because we have let things get so far out of control they are breaking down. The world is broken and no bandaid, quick-fix can repair it.
So what happens now? How do we fix a world gone bad? It is time to take a much closer look at the institutions that are breaking down: the financial systems, the kings and queens, the prolonged fighting/wars, etc. Although we are used to such institutions, they continue to destroy us. Change is difficult for most people, but if we allow things to continue on as they are our demise is inevitable. I, for one, am no longer willing to accept societal norms because all they do is lull us into a false sense of security. Ultimately, we must acknowledge that what has been done in the past is no longer working and develop new paradigms which focus on restoring order and rebuilding community.
- Is it true?

A Facebook friend posted this lovely video this morning. As I listening to the very soothing sounds of Kitaro playing the Theme From Silk Road, I felt myself pulling away from the anklebiters and rising to a much more soothing, loving frequency. Thought I would share this video with you in the hopes that you are also comforted! With love!

here. Look below the publication date of March 5, 2009 to where it says "Provisional application number" and you will see the application for patent was filed on August 28th, 2007. Interestingly enough, it is very difficult to find information on the actual patent through typical search engines (US 2009/0060950 A1). I tried Google searches AND a search at the at the United States Patent and Trademark Website (where I was left with a message that read no results found). Googling H1N1 patent provided me with the first clues. This is not new information--just hard to find. (Update: this information is now impossible to find through a regular Google search. I had to use DuckDuckGo on 2/1/18!)
Something else bothers me about the H1N1 virus. This quote from Wikipedia, under Influenza A virus subtype H1N1:
In the 2009 flu pandemic, the virus isolated from patients in the United States was found to be made up of genetic elements from four different flu viruses – North American swine influenza, North American avian influenza, human influenza, and swine influenza virus typically found in Asia and Europe – "an unusually mongrelised mix of genetic sequences." This new strain appears to be a result of reassortmentof human influenza and swine influenza viruses, in all four different strains of subtype H1N1.Why does this bother me? It appears this particular strain of flu virus is an unusual mix of DNA material from North American pigs, North American birds, human flu, and pig viruses found mostly in Asia and Europe. How on God's green earth does something like that magically mutate together? Seems less an act of nature than and more an act of DNA manipulation (otherwise known as recombinant DNA, which was first officially performed in l972).
Preliminary genetic characterization found that the hemagglutinin (HA) gene was similar to that of swine flu viruses present in U.S. pigs since 1999, but the neuraminidase (NA) and matrix protein (M) genes resembled versions present in European swine flu isolates. The six genes from American swine flu are themselves mixtures of swine flu, bird flu, and human flu viruses. While viruses with this genetic makeup had not previously been found to be circulating in humans or pigs, there is no formal national surveillance system to determine what viruses are circulating in pigs in the U.S.
Is it possible there are those who create problems in order to also supply the solutions (for a price, of course)? Is the world truly so dark that people would play with the lives and financial resources of others? Only the people who play God know for sure. Beware. The light is coming!

We're told that, but I'm not convinced it is true. I've spent time on both sides of the fence at various points in my life, and I can't say I've truly enjoyed either one. Why, you ask? While I admit there is a certain satisfaction in believing you stand in truth, one good solid fact can scatter your truth to the four winds and you are left rebuilding your entire world. Sadly, what we see as "truth" is often just one perspective in a multifaceted world. Believing you have all the answers leads to fights and wars and untruth because you do not have all the information available.
Life on the fence is a bit of a balancing act. Sometimes you feel yourself falling into one side or the other and you have to counteract the force of gravity in order to maintain that balance. Keeping yourself upright is not always easy nor is it always pleasant. Still there is something to be said for living a balanced life. Living at either extreme can easily tear you apart (and it often does). When you choose to align yourself with a side, you are choosing to keep yourself inside the fray.
While I admit I do fall off the fence at times, I am getting faster at recognizing when I do and am able to climb back up much more quickly. I find life on the fence is much more peaceful than it was when I was "right". I can accept people for who they are without judging them, all the while allowing them to have those experiences they have chosen to have. I allow myself the same privilege.
Someday, I'd like to think everyone will live life on the fence. There will be no more fighting. Instead, we can all help our fellow BEings maintain balance and live in harmony with all.

I could stand on my soapbox for hours discussing the world's problems, but the reality is many more knowledgeable people will be bringing their expertise to the forefront in big ways very soon. It is time for us to recognize the problems so we can shift out of the old paradigm into one with much more promising choices. It will not be an easy shift. Many of us have been deceived into building our foundations on shifting sands. Still, I will say this. Better worlds can come when you have to start from scratch. Try not to fear the coming reforms. The choices and freedoms you find will make your wildest dreams come true!

The very first link provided gives a brief explanation of the patent--rather technical lingo for the layman talking about DNA using words like replication and expression. However, if you look at the overview on the left side of the screen you will find this description: Process for producing biologically functional molecular chimeras. What is a chimera, you ask? In ancient times, chimeras were mythical creatures who were bits and pieces of different creatures that formed one creature. As far as the field of genetics is concerned, a chimera is an organism made up of of two or more genetically distinct tissues or an artificially produced organism that contains tissue from two or more species. Basically, it is a process of splicing genes to produce new DNA combinations and organisms! Science has revealed some of this information in recent years, as evidenced by pictures like this.
The original patent 4237224 was applied for in January of 1979 and granted in 1980. That was over 30 years ago, folks! Think about how far scientists have gotten in the field of computers in that amount of time. Is it that inconceivable to think they have come just as far with DNA manipulation? Also think about this: the most advanced technology pretty much always goes on in secret behind closed doors. How far have they really gone (and what ethical codes may have been broken) within that time frame?
While this patent does not prove Cynthia was used in DNA experiments to produce a viably functional chimera, it does lead credence to the idea that such experimentation was indeed possible. What sort of creatures may have been produced using such techniques? Do we, as humans, have the right to play God?
There do seem to be a special few humans who indeed believe they are the ultimate creators. How far will we let them go in their plans and pretensions? We cannot expect our current leaders to save us, for they have supported this mess! It is time to stand up for ourselves--to no longer be used and manipulated--and make sure we are not destroyed by those who play God.
The following article contains all the current links to recent interviews given by Cynthia Marie Brewer: Who Owns Your DNA?
The oppression I have experienced seems to have vanished overnight. As it dawned on me that I could dream big dreams again, I understood there has been a major shift in energy! Light has finally begun to break through in this seemingly endless night!

- I'm sorry.
- Please forgive me.
- Thank you.
- I love you.
Ho'oponopono is a form of prayer which takes responsibility for what happens--even things you don't rationally believe are in your power to control--in order to transform problems. I first heard about this prayer's power through stories of a Hawaiian doctor named Len Hew, who healed a whole ward of criminally insane patients through the power of this prayer. By using Ho'oponopono in my own life, I have made some very significant personal breakthroughs.
At this time in the world's history, chaos still reigns supreme. Our society--our whole way of life--is based on an intricate series of lies and myths that we have accepted as our reality! Ho'oponopono is one technique we can use to transform our world.
The power of Ho'oponopono lies in taking responsibility for everything that happens. Why does this have power, you ask? By taking responsibility, you let yourself seek out all those places inside where barriers have formed--barriers that keep you trapped in a limited reality. You allow yourself to see and acknowledge your own flaws--your own darkness. When you see and acknowledge your own darkness, it no longer has power over you, and you are transformed.
As we are all connected--all One, it is only through changing ourselves that the world is changed. Ho'oponopono prayer works because you embrace all that is and allow the chains of limitation to be broken!
I'm so sorry I have allowed lies and deceit to overcome the beauty of life on our planet! I'm sorry I have allowed truth to be hidden from myself and others! I am sorry I have not been willing to acknowledge my own personal darkness, playing the game of having to be right and light! Please forgive me! I believed that was how I should live my life, but no more! Forgive me for those times I have let myself play the game! Thank you for accepting me as I am, in strength and weakness! Thank you for allowing me this opportunity to learn and grow! I love you so much!
As we transform and heal ourselves, we transform and heal the world. This is the power of taking responsibility. This is the power of Ho'oponopono!

You have to understand how the cabal works in order to defeat them. Only a few at the very top of the pyramid understand everything that is going on. Those closer to the top know most, but not all of the plan and it goes on from there. As you go on toward the lower levels of the structure, the people in the power structure know less and less. It's called compartmentalization, and most people only know the role they are to play. Why this works is because different cogs in the machine do not know enough about the operations of the others to do any serious damage to the organization as a whole. Plans to defeat the cabal usually arise from a few cogs who begin talking to other cogs whose jobs are close enough to theirs and begin to understand how some of the pieces actually fit together. The cabal has worked for thousands of years because of this complicated organizational structure.
Those of us who want to defeat the cabal think we have to come up with the correct plan to follow, and that has been our downfall. You see, in order to defeat the cabal, it is not about us all knowing everything that is in the works to defeat them. It is not our job to know everything! We only need to know the part we particularly play!!!
There is a plan, and it has been created by the One. Whether you believe the One is God, Source, universal intelligence or space aliens, understand there IS an intelligence that is coordinating all things unseen. We are not on top of the organization, nor do we need to be! The only thing we need to do to defeat the cabal is to do our own jobs!
How do we know what our jobs are? What are you passionate about? What work makes your heart sing? What exactly do you feel called to do? The key here is to follow your heart!!! It is not the wisdom of the mind that defeats the cabal. The understandings of the mind are extremely limited by the teachings we have encountered over time. The heart, however, is able to lock on to the wisdom and knowledge of the One. This is the difference between us and the cabal. The heart wins every time.
