(Natural News)
Cancer patients have to face a lot of tough decisions, and one of the biggest ones is whether or not to get chemotherapy if it’s offered for their particular diagnosis. A lot of people struggle with this decision because they’re concerned about the side effects, which are admittedly pretty severe, but there’s one very big reason that some people decide against it: Studies have shown that it can actually trigger the spread of cancer into nearby areas of the body.

One study carried out by researchers from The Ohio State University showed how chemotherapy triggers the cellular responses that spur the spread. Previous studies showed that chemotherapy leads to cellular changes in breast cancer patients, so they decided to explore the effects that the very common frontline chemotherapy drug paclitaxel has on breast cancer patients. The researchers chose the lungs because they are the closest organ to the breasts.

They discovered that breast cancer patients who were given paclitaxel chemotherapy had overexpressed Atf3 genes, a transcription factor activated by stress. Those who did not get chemo didn’t have an overexpression in this gene. The gene causes damage in two ways. First, it distributes cancer cells throughout the lungs, and then it primes the area to boost the cells’ chances of surviving and thriving.

In other words, the chemotherapy had a carcinogenic effect on the body by activating this gene. The researchers were surprised just how much this drug seemed to make patients’ bodies conducive to cancer.

Study senior author Tsonwin Hai said: “That chemotherapy can paradoxically promote cancer progression is an emerging revelation in cancer research. However, a molecular-level understanding of this devastating effect is not clear.”

She added that she believes the process isn’t a passive one wherein cancer cells basically escape into the bloodstream thanks to leaky vessels. Instead, she believes it’s an active process involving a biological change that actually beckons the cancerous cells to escape into the patient’s blood.

She urged the medical community to keep an open mind about the double-edged sword that is chemotherapy; it may help treat cancer in some cases, she says, but it could also raise the chances of spreading it.

Past studies also point to chemotherapy’s ability to spread cancer

A different study found that even though some chemotherapy drugs might shrink tumors in the short term, they raise the chances the cancer cells will migrate to other parts of the body. At the same time, they might be triggering a system of repair that essentially allows them to grow back stronger.

This was the finding of a team of researchers from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. They discovered that patients who were given two common chemotherapy drugs experienced an increase in the number of “doorways” in blood vessels that facilitated the spread of cancer throughout their bodies. The study was published in the journal Science Translational Medicine.

Needless to say, this isn’t great news for women who are looking to treat breast cancer. Many would be willing to put up with side effects like nausea and hair loss, but chemotherapy in breast cancer patients has even been linked to brain damage. The fact that it could spread cancer makes it an even less attractive option. Treatment is a very personal decision, but it’s important to have all the facts before committing to something that could make the cancer get worse, not better.

Who Lucifer Actually Is & Why They Are Here

Of all subjects to venture into, writing about Lucifer could be among the most contentious of them all. Many readers will likely come into the discussion with pre-conceived notions and emotional triggers that are difficult to lay aside, even just for the amount of time it takes to read this article. But put them aside we must, if we are to have a fruitful conversation.

I am not out to convince anybody about an opinion. I am out to elaborate upon an understanding of who and what Lucifer is that I find best explains the entire body of information that is out there about him. Further, this explanation resonates the most with the paradigm I currently hold about spirituality and my understanding about why we are here on the planet at this time.

Some of my information comes from a forum thread between a self-proclaimed “generational member of a Ruling Bloodline Family,” and forum members who pose questions to the person going under the moniker ‘Hidden-Hand.’ I found this information particularly, ahem, illuminating.

 

Context

A general understanding that I work with about our life here on the planet is that we have incarnated into this ‘3rd density’ reality to evolve, individually and collectively, to the 4th and higher densities. David Wilcock and others speak about our ascension into the 4th density as an event that was slated around the end of the Mayan calendar in December 2012, and remains imminent, as he speaks about in his book The Ascension Mysteries.

This ascension of our individual and group souls, unfolding in accordance with astrological cycles that our solar system is tied into, is the quintessential spiritual ‘movement’ of all sentient beings in our universe, whether they are focusing on their own advances up through the densities, ending in a return to oneness with the supreme creator, or holding themselves back by choice to help other beings rise out of those lower densities. This is the ‘game’ that has been set up, to give life its vitality, direction, and purpose.

 

Creation

A very simple way to explain how ‘Creation’ works within this context will help in our understanding of who Lucifer is. Basically, the one ‘Supreme Creator’ did not create all there is as such. The one ‘Supreme Creator’ created many ‘sub-creators.’ A sub-creator (also known as a ‘logos’) could then create ‘sub-sub-creators.’ In other words, there is something of a hierarchy or ‘chain’ of creation that goes from the unmanifest ‘Supreme Creator’ all the way down to us as individual souls, who are also ‘creators’ in our own right. Simply stated, there are creator-beings who are creators of planets, suns, galaxies, and even universes.

When asked who directly created us, Hidden-Hand replies thusly:

Your Creator, the one you have called ‘Yahweh’, is not “God” inasmuch as your bible refers to him as being “the One True God”. He is ‘a’ Creator (or Sub-Sub-Logos) rather than the One Infinite Creator. He is not even a Galactic level Logos, but rather, is the Planetary Logos for this one planet.

Stay with me now. If we can entertain the possibility that creation is multi-leveled, and that at the ‘planetary’ level the ‘creator’ of a planet has free will to create as they choose, then the stories we hear from the book of Genesis take on far more meaning. Apparently, Yahweh decided to create a nice planet that was somewhat of a paradise, because essentially evil didn’t exist there and the human beings lived in a state of reverence and obedience towards Yahweh, who was providing humans all they needed.

Nonetheless, in the absence of conflict, challenge, or stress, neither the humans nor Yahweh himself were evolving towards reunion with ‘Supreme Creator,’ which as we previously mentioned is the ‘game’ that we all signed up for. Humans did not have any ‘free will’ because in the absence of evil in their world things were ‘all good’ and they had nothing to choose from.

Enter Lucifer.

 

Lucifer 

According to Hidden-Hand, Lucifer (the ‘light-bearer’) is an advanced 6th-density being (or ‘group soul’) that agreed to descend into 3rd density on planet Earth to provide the ‘context’ by which human beings could experience free choice. That context was made possible by the introduction of ‘evil.’ In the face of ‘evil’ humans would for the first time be able to choose ‘good’ over something else.

Hidden-Hand describes how polarity and the presence of evil first came into mankind’s experience:

Yahweh agreed that we would introduce the concept of Free Will to Earth’s inhabitants, by offering them an initial choice, as to whether they ‘wanted’ it or not. Hence, “The Tree of the Knowledge of ‘Good and Evil’” (or more accurately, the Knowledge of Polarity, of Positive or Negative).

Yahweh takes his inhabitants to a new ‘garden’ and tells them you can do anything you like, except this one thing, thus creating the desire to do the one thing there are told they cannot. Hence, a “Choice”. We provide the Catalyst by telling them the benefits of attaining Knowledge, they eat from the tree, and the rest is history.

Hence Lucifer ‘tempts’ humanity into polarity, as polarity is the one context through which knowledge can be acquired. In essence, Lucifer has agreed to play a very challenging role on our planet in order to be a catalyst for our evolution into the higher densities.

 

Not An Endorsement Of Luciferianism

If you are still with me, you undoubtedly agree that conversations like this require a high level of discernment between what is being said and what is not being said. While Lucifer has so far been characterized as a highly evolved bringer of light and knowledge, for example,  there has been no support given to the principles or the practice of Luciferianism or the ‘Luciferian Doctrine.’

 

 Lucifer is considered to be a highly evolved ‘group soul’, having reached 6th density, while our world is currently in 3rd density transitioning to 4th density. The concept of ‘group soul’ is important here, as it suggests that, as individual souls evolve towards reunion with the One Creator, they gather into ever larger sub-groups of consciousness from which they came.

In this context, the ‘Fall of Lucifer’ is actually based on an agreement between Lucifer and the Earth’s planetary logos (creator) known as Yahweh, an agreement designed to introduce ‘evil’ to the planet in order to foster human free will and subsequently accelerate human evolution.

Fallen Angel

In the Bible there is reference made to the fall of Lucifer, characterized as God’s punishment for a self-centered angel who aspired to be above the one almighty God:

“How you are fallen from heaven,

O Lucifer, son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground,
You who weakened the nations!
For you have said in your heart:
‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;” –Isaiah, 14:12-13

What this in fact represents is the result of Yahweh’s anger at his human population having disobeyed him by succumbing to Lucifer’s temptation in the garden. Yahweh had only reluctantly accepted the proposition that his human subjects be granted free will, and actually went ahead with it believing they would not disobey him.

If you are wondering ‘How could God the Creator be angry?’ it helps to understand that Yahweh is not the One Creator but rather simply the creator of the planet Earth, and as a planetary logos had not evolved beyond anger, jealousy, and revenge. While being fully aware and very powerful, Yahweh’s soul had not grown much since the creation of the planet. It is, in fact, the evolution of the human race that is the vehicle for Yahweh’s own evolution into higher densities.

Lucifer Confined To Astral Planes

And so Yahweh took out his wrath, not only on his human population–which is well documented in the Old Testament–but on Lucifer as well. He confined the group soul to the Earth’s Astral Planes. Lucifer’s ‘fall from grace’ is actually a consequence of Yahweh’s jealousy, because Lucifer, as a 6th density group soul, had become a more highly evolved being than Yahweh was. Here is how Hidden-Hand explains the blowback from Yahweh’s actions:

Now that Free Will had been granted, Yahweh could not retract it, and we have to stay here as contracted to continue to provide the planet with the Polarity choice. Since then, Yahweh has confined us (as a Group Soul) here within the Earth’s Astral Planes (which is very constricting and uncomfortable for a Being of our Wisdom and experience).

The Council of Elders gave us the choice to be released (against Yahweh’s will), but at the cancellation of our contract to Serve the planet earth; or to remain and fulfill our assignment, and endure Yahweh’s self-proclaimed “Wrath”. We stayed, but as a karmic result of our Group Soul’s confinement by Yahweh, our own individuated Souls were given the mandate (by The Council) to “Rule” over Yahweh’s people during our physical incarnations here on your planet.

The fact that the soul group’s individuated souls ‘were given the mandate (by The Council) to “Rule” over Yahweh’s people’ is of paramount importance. It gives us a much greater and more profound understanding of the nature of the presence of evil on this planet. The oft-heard references to a nefarious ‘Cabal’ or ‘Illuminati’ group running the planet, no matter how accurate or inaccurate as those words may be, appears to be validated in this big-picture view.

The 13 Bloodlines

In effect, due to the karma that Yahweh created by his petty acts of jealousy and rage, the group soul named Lucifer would not simply be stoking the fires of evil on the planet from afar, but the individuated souls of that group soul would incarnate on the planet via 13 sacred bloodlines to actually rule the planet from a much higher level of consciousness and self-awareness that humans would have.

The original ‘incarnation’ seems to correspond to the Nephilim or ‘Fallen Angels,’ whose integration into the human race is described in Genesis 6:4:

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them.

This may be where the 13 bloodlines got started. What is important to note is that, while the human race lived on the Earth with a healthy dose of ‘amnesia’ of who they were for the purposes of their own evolution, it does not seem as though the individuated souls of Lucifer were in the same boat. They consciously understood their role on Earth, and have had a structure in place to maintain cohesion in their role as rulers through their understanding that they are part of the ‘Family,’ an understanding that is passed down by every generation. Hidden-Hand, in fact, identifies himself as a ‘generational member’:

I am a generational member of a Ruling Bloodline Family, our Lineage can be traced back beyond antiquity. From the earliest times of your recorded “history”, and beyond, our Family has been ‘directing’ the ‘play’ from behind the scenes, in one way or another.

There are 13 ‘base’ or ‘core’ original bloodlines. Yet there are many many other lines that spring from these, as do rivers from the oceans. If you imagine the 13 Original lines as Primary colour, that can be mixed to create a vast array of other colours, then you will have some comprehension. Again, no competition, just Family.

Disciplines Of Training Within The Family

The Family, then, appears to be essentially the group soul of Lucifer, whose core members unify around their sole and original purpose, to provide the catalyst for human growth through playing the role of controlling rulers of the planet. They do so, according to Hidden-Hand, through a very comprehensive program of training of family members in key areas of human influence:

There are six disciplines of training within the Family, and each member of the Family is schooled extensively in all of them, from early childhood. We all have an area of specialty, though we have experience in all spheres. The six spheres or ‘schools’ of learning are Military, Government, Spiritual, Scholarship, Leadership, and Sciences. In practice, out there on the ‘stage’ of public life, we hold key positions in all of these main areas of importance. With the addition of a complicit Media machine and ownership of your Financial establishments, all bases are covered.

Hidden Hand Of Influence

These positions of power are not what we first think of–politicians, generals, corporate heads, even the visible monarchy. In reference to a question about the British Royalty, Hidden-Hand says the following:

The British Royalty is not the most powerful line. The names that you know, do not hold the real ancient power. There are others above these lineages in the Hierarchy. You will not know the names of these lines.

So the individuated souls of Lucifer do indeed play the role of a hidden hand, and hold the true power behind those people and institutions who seem to exert the most authority in the world. Are these powerful Luciferian souls actually perpetrating evil in the world themselves, or are they just inciting evil within human beings?

Who Lucifer Actually Is & Why They Are Here (Part 2: Bloodline Families)

We are having a New Moon in Gemini on June 13th, 2018 at 7:43 pm Universal Time. This is initiating a 29.5 Lunar cycle and a new wave of energy for the coming month. This cycle will peak at the Full Moon which is occurring on June 27th/28th.

The Solstice will also occur during this period (June 21st) which is when we have the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and the shortest day of the year in the Southern Hemisphere. Solstices (and Equinoxes) initiate the transition into seasons as well as signs in the Tropical Zodiac.

At this Solstice, we are shifting from Gemini season into Cancer season. The signs of the Tropical Zodiac are distributed equally based on the Earth-Sun relationship and are not supposed to be aligned with constellations like many people believe. This was established and determined nearly 2000 years ago by the historical astronomer/astrologer Ptolemy and other astrologers at that time.

New Moon In Gemini

We have been in Gemini season since May 20th/21st with its ruler Mercury also in Gemini since May 29th. This is sign belongs to the Element of Air which is socially and mentally oriented, and is also a mutable sign which has adaptable and spreadable qualities.

Gemini’s energy is curious, communicative, articulate, informative, clever, and dualistic. It can also be gossipy, superficial, and inconsistent. Although the majority of this Moon cycle will be occurring while the Sun is in Cancer, the Gemini energy is imprinted onto it, especially influencing the first two weeks up until the next Full Moon.

In the weeks leading to this New Moon, the Gemini Sun, Mercury, and previous Full Moon have been in a hard square with Neptune. There may have been some confusion, scatteredness, miscommunications, or issues with communication technology, especially around June 5th/6th and near the Full Moon from May 28th-30th.

The Neptune energy is behind us, although its effects may still be lingering, we are now in a period in which Mercury is traveling ahead of the Sun (began after June 5th). We can have a new sense of clarity in which our minds are more aligned with our true needs, and any of the issues mentioned above can be more easily resolved. It is also possible that some of the clarity or resolutions that we experience now may be connected to themes that have been occurring or on our minds since April 1st or even prior.

Mercury Newly In Cancer, Sextile Uranus, Square Chiron, and Opposite Saturn

Just under 24 hours prior to this New Moon, Mercury enters Cancer where it will be until June 28th/29th.  Cancer is ruled by the Moon while Gemini is ruled by Mercury, therefore these heavenly bodies are in each other’s signs. This is called a ‘mutual reception’ which is a harmonious configuration between them. Communications and perceptions can become more feeling based, sensitive, personal, and subjective during this time. Our thinking can be more reflective and aligned with what we feel at the gut level, however, since Cancer is a Cardinal sign, decision making can still be quick.

Mercury is in a tight sextile with Uranus in Taurus which gets strong as it enters Cancer and on the day of this New Moon. It will also be imprinted in the lunar cycle. Communications and thinking can be innovative, exciting, unconventional, liberating, or could involve Uranus ruled areas of technology and metaphysics. Insight, intuition, and great ideas can be stimulated by this configuration. It could be connected to a different way of thinking when it comes to values, money, or how we approach our routines. This New Moon is also in a wide sextile with Uranus which emphasizes the themes mentioned above.

Mercury is in a square with Chiron in Aries on this day as well while moving towards an opposition with Saturn. Wounds and blockages may be tied to thoughts and communications. and perhaps needing to get real about issues that are inhibiting. On June 14th-15th (16th in the East), Mercury opposing Saturn peaks which at best can be good for applying mental discipline. However, we can also face restrictions, delays, and or we can more easily become negative in our thoughts and words.

Venus Going Into Leo, Square Uranus

At the time of this New Moon, Venus is at the very end of Cancer and transitions into Leo a few hours later. It had been there since May 19th, a time during which Venus-ruled areas of relationships and social interactions have been more personal and have a nurturing or bonding quality. Venus being in Leo until July 9th can be more romantic, dramatic, fun, and creative. Social initiatives can be more self-expressive. Anything to do with aesthetics and beauty at this time can be more flashy or have more flair.

Venus is in a square which is strongest in the days following this lunation while some of the Mercury aspects mentioned above are happening. At best, this can bring excitement and new experiences, both socially and romantically, and can be impulsive. However, it can also be disruptive and separative. Depending on how it is hitting your natal astrology chart, instability in different types of relationships can be a theme during the coming weeks, and in some cases, the potential manifestations mentioned can play out in the realm of finances.

Mars And Neptune Going Retrograde

Mars is slowing down to go retrograde which will begin on June 26th. Mars retrogrades occur roughly every 2 years and last 2 months and are when it appears to be moving backward due to our vantage point. Ultimately it is a time in which we go through a process that allows us to make adjustments in how we assert and take action in our lives, in many cases sexually as well. Anger and aggression through us or around us can be heightened due to increased inner tension. However, we will be in a better place with a better approach in the weeks following August 27th as Mars slowly moves forward again.

I will be creating more content on this Mars retrograde as we get closer. You can join my mailing list here to be notified of when new work is published.

Currently, Neptune appears nearly stopped as it is also about to go retrograde, beginning on June 18th/19th and will last until November 24th/25th. Unlike Mars, Neptune and the other outer planets are retrograde roughly 40% of the time and therefore it doesn’t have the same significance. However, its transitions in motion are when we can notice it the most.

Neptune themes may be highlighted at this time and we may be reflecting on or revisiting things associated with this planet. It rules creativity, imagination, visual arts, film/photography, fantasy, dreams, spirituality, divinity, compassion, as well as practices and substances that induce psychedelic experiences. Neptune is also associated with escapism, drugs, alcohol, and behavior that is flaky, delusional and deceptive. It can also be confusing and lack definition. Whatever Neptune related stuff that is coming up at this time or in recent weeks, will have some sort of concluding factor or significant development when the retrograde ends in late November.

Making Intentions And Things To Consider

What was occurring around June 5th/6th and how do you need to proceed forward in your life based on your thoughts, communications, and whatever else has been happening at that time? What aspect of your thinking, perception, and communication needs to be improved on? Do you need to be more versatile and adaptable?

It is possible that certain initiatives and actions you are working towards could face some challenges and frustrations over the coming months, beginning with this Lunar cycle… Considering this, it could be a good idea to set an intention to receive clear guidance and signs from the Universe on the best way to apply yourself to minimize this.

These are just some examples, however, it is good to reflect on anything else that is coming up for you at this time.  It is generally best to make any intentions within the first 24 hours following a New Moon. However, in this specific case, the first 17 hours would be best and can be as early as 30 minutes prior to the exact moment of it which is the most ideal. This New Moon will be occurring at 7:43 pm Universal Time. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

Evidence Suggesting David Icke Is Actually Right About Reptilians

Probably one of the most challenging conspiracy theories of the past 30 years for people to digest is that of David Icke’s theory that reptilian ET’s are mixed in with the elite of our planet and have influence over how it is run. To be fair, this theory doesn’t belong to David but was simply popularized by him.

I challenge you to continue reading this with an open mind, you will be surprised as to how deep this actually goes. For the record, no I’m not going to be talking about silly YouTube videos or photoshopped images showing reptile eyes belonging to the elite. We’re only going to look at very real evidence anyone can verify.

When I first realized the true magnitude of what the Pope’s Audience Hall design reveals, I was shocked. Despite 10 years of research into the elite, occult, Illuminati, consciousness, and more, this stuck out as something I just HAD to write about.

Have you heard of the Pope’s Audience Hall? Also known as the Paul VI Audience Hall or the Hall of the Pontifical Audiences, it lies partially in Vatican City and partially in Rome, Italy. Named after Pope Paul VI and built in 1971 by Italian architect Pier Luigi Nervi,  it  seats 6,300 and contains a bronze statue called La Resurrezione, designed by Pericle Fazzini, within.

This all sounds pretty straightforward so far, but let’s dive into what makes this building so strange. We’ll start with the less weird, and get progressively weirder as we go.

Building Method and Design

The building was designed with reinforced concrete by well-known architect Pier Luigi Nervi. Nervi is known for simple yet practical designs that are strong and made to last.

The simple curvature of the building might seem unassuming from the outside, but this is part one of what we will begin to explore about this building, and I promise you, by the time we get to the end, you will see what I’m getting at.

Have a look at the image below and compare its shape to the image of a snake beside it. Note the overall shape — wide back, narrow, rounded front, eyes in the middle, nostril at the front, and curved top.

Windows

As you can already begin to see in the image above, there are two windows on either side of the building that resemble eyes. They are made of stained glass and sit about halfway through the building’s length on either side.

In the centre of the eye shape, you begin to see a slit that could resemble a reptile eye. If you’re not convinced yet, which is understandable, keep reading.


Maybe looking at one window on its own isn’t the most clear, so let’s have a look at both of them together now.

All of a sudden we begin to see things taking shape here — two reptilian eyes, staring at you as you observe the stage.

Scales and Fangs

Have a look again at the image above — what do you notice down the centre? There stands what looks to be a statue in the middle and then on either side, two sharp, pointed fangs. The building’s roof and sides also resemble scales.

Here are two more images to give you a sense of the scales.

Now let’s pull it together a bit more so we can really see what we are looking at. In the image below, really pay attention to the whole building and stage layout next to the image of a snake. The eyes, the shape, the scales, the fangs, the look and feel of the reptile… it’s all there.

The La Resurrezione Statue

In the middle of the stage sits a statue of Christ rising from an atomic apocalypse. It was designed by Pericle Fazzini and put in place by 1977. Have a look at it below. Do you notice anything about Jesus’ head?

Front

Right side

Left side

It’s difficult to see from the front, but when you view the statue from the sides, where patrons would sit, it becomes strikingly clear from both sides that the head of Jesus is meant to look like that of a snake.

Think about it for a moment: If just one side of the statue gave the impression of a snake’s head, we could brush this off as coincidence, but when it looks this way from all angles, and the entire building resembles a snake as well, it becomes much more difficult to ignore. One must begin to realize that this was purposefully designed to appear this way. The thought and planning that went into this would have to have been immense.

The reality is, there is an obvious reason for this imagery.

The Big Question

You may be asking what that reason is; why was this building built in such a way that the Pope appears to be speaking from the mouth of a reptile? If you aren’t asking that question, you’re simply turning a blind eye. It’s not that the evidence isn’t present, it’s that you are choosing not to see it. There are seven separate pieces that comprise the snake or reptile symbol. If it were one or two I would understand your skepticism — even three. But when seven pieces come together so beautifully, so perfectly, you know beyond any shadow of a doubt that it was intentional.

Regardless, I know what I’m saying may be difficult to accept, but all tough truths go through phases — laughter and ridicule, partial acceptance, and then, eventually, they appear self-evident to the population. I believe we are getting closer to the third stage when it comes to understanding who truly runs and has influence over our world, which is why this snake symbolism exists here.

Research demonstrates there is a Deep State that largely governs our world — a group of people that aren’t American, European, Russian, Canadian, etc., but beyond national identity, and they control our entire world. It has been said for a long time that there is an extraterrestrial influence there as well. Not from all races of ETs, but from one in particular, the reptilians. Not all reptilians are defectors of the heart, but a group, just like a group of humans, that has worked to influence this planet.

I understand this sounds ‘out there,’ but really think about it. There is more evidence for the reality of ETs than anyone could possibly imagine. There is a ton of evidence for a Deep State controlling things. Is it at all possible that these two realities are linked? Again, I’m not saying all ETs or even all reptilians are ‘bad,’ but rather that perhaps a few are, and they are working with our governments.

Even our own government officials have stated they are well aware of ETs but simply haven’t told the public. As revealed by former Defense Minister of Canada Paul Hellyer: “So they decided to do an investigation, and they investigated for three years, and they decided that, with absolute certainty, that four species, four different species, at least, have been visiting this planet for thousands of years.”

The knowledge governments have of ETs is immense, and whistleblowers have revealed this many times, with plenty of documentation behind them. You can watch the film Unacknowledged on Netflix to learn more about this.

The reptilian influence over the Deep State theory is not new, and can be found in many traditions and cultures. But it has been popularized by the work of David Icke who, understandably, has received a lot of ridicule for it. Regardless of that, millions follow and believe in his work. I highly suggest reading more about this theory here.

Why This Symbolism Is Used

While at an event in California called Contact In The Desert, we interviewed David Wilcock, a longtime occult researcher. During the interview, he mentioned that the Elite/Illuminati believe they must convey their intentions to humanity in order to, in essence, get permission from us to enact them. This manifests as rituals during mass sports events and symbolism found around society and in various popular industries like film and music.

When you begin to consider what the Pope’s Audience Hall is truly saying, it becomes clear he is speaking from the mouth of the snake. He stands in front of the mouth and speaks the words of the Elite to all those listening. The Elite are telling humanity via symbolism that this is what’s happening.

You can watch the full interview with David Wilcock here.

It has been said and proposed by many researchers that Christianity, among most other religions, is used to control the masses. While religious stories may hold some truth and convey helpful messages, their overall purpose is to lead people into a relationship with spirit that is disempowering. The guilt, judgement, and wrath that exist within religions are designed to control us, to take away our power. We must also realize that these religions are impure and that we have been turning a blind eye to this for some time. Look what happened with the coverup of Vatican child sex abuse scandals, for example.

In the end, I’m not asking you to believe everything being said here, but I’m also not suggesting you laugh it off. There are facts here that can be explored, but one has to go through the research. There is clearly something very intentional going on here and one doesn’t spend many millions to design and build a very obvious snake within Vatican-owned buildings for no reason. Do your own research on the topic of reptilians, the Elite bloodlines, and what symbolism like this means. See how it feels for you. Allow your mind to be open to connect the dots as opposed to being closed and dismissive on something that doesn’t sound like ‘everyday life.’

Grazing animals on forested pastures found to actually stimulate plant growth, benefiting conservation efforts


Image: Grazing animals on forested pastures found to actually stimulate plant growth, benefiting conservation efforts

(Natural News)
Certain factors play a role in the development of soil seed banks in wood pastures, according to researchers from the Institute for Animal Production System in Mediterranean Environment (ISPAAM) in Italy. Their study, which was published in the journal Agroforestry Systems, revealed that depending on certain conditions, it could potentially increase the volume and level of biodiversity in the soil seed banks.

The term soil seed bank pertains to the natural storage of seeds in the environment. In particular, soil seed banks can occur in a variety of locations: It could be in the leaf litter, on the surface of the soil, or in the soil of many ecosystems. In essence, a soil seed bank plays a role in woodland and forest regeneration, and with the number of stresses that an ecosystem experiences – of which wildfire, drought, and disturbance are chief, a soil seed bank ensures the long-term survival of ecosystems.

There are two categories of soil seed banks:

  • transient seed bank is one where seeds are only viable for a short period of time. An example of a transient seed bank is one that has plants that can germinate for only one season.
  • Persistent seed banks, on the other hand, are viable for a longer period of time. These can survive anywhere from one to five years. An example of a plant in a persistent seed bank is lamb’s quarters (Chenopodium album), which can germinate for forty years or longer.

For this study, researchers focused on soil seed banks in Mediterranean wood pastures, which allow understory vegetation to adapt to various conditions. To do this, they looked at the effects of grazing exclusion on the transient and persistent seed banks in the region.

Grazing exclusion, or selecting areas that livestock will not graze, is a practice that’s gaining popularity to recover heavily degraded grasslands. In a separate study published in Scientific Reports, the authors of the study noted that grazing exclusion “affects plant diversity, biomass production, and nutrients” in the soil. In particular, grazing exclusion can improve above-ground biomass and can favor the growth of certain plant groups. (Related: Ancient Seeds: The Key to Feeding the World.)

In particular, the team sampled 23 areas in a Mediterranean wood pasture used in silvopastoral systems – that is, a combination of trees and forage plants for livestock grazing – for the study. The wood pasture contained trees like the cork oak (Quercus suber L.), evergreen oak (Q. ilex L.), and downy oak (Q. pubescens Willd.). The team used canonical correspondence analysis to measure the topo-climactic, soil, and biodiversity factors on the soil seed bank in both grazed and ungrazed pastures.

The researchers determined that factors such as rainfall, grazing, and the available phosphorus content of the soil affected persistent seed banks. Phosphorous, in particular, is an essential element for plant growth as it stimulates early plant growth and maturity. In addition, the exposure to these elements increased the size of the soil seed bank in silvopastoral systems. Depending on the site, specific grazing schemes may improve the number of legumes in the seed bank, as well as improve the species richness and level of diversity in undergrowth vegetation.

Understanding the implication of these results, according to the authors, could aid conservation efforts in the silvopastoral area in the region.

Space Is Not Empty, It’s Actually Full of Energy: The Quantum Vacuum

“And upon the Earth are animals and men, some in a middle region, others (elementals) dwelling about the air as we dwell about the sea; others in islands which the air flows round, near the continent; and in a word, the air is used by them as the water and the sea are by us, and the ether is to them what the air is to us. Moreover, the temperament of their seasons is such that they have no disease (Paracelsus disputes this), and live much longer than we do, and have sight and hearing and smell, and all the other senses, in far greater perfection, in the same degree that air is purer than water or the ether than air. Also they have temples and sacred places in which the gods really dwell, and they hear their voices and receive their answers, and are conscious of them and hold converse with them, and they see the sun, moon, and stars as they really are.” (source)

The above quote comes from Plato’s Phaedo, and it’s fascinating for multiple reasons, as are the works of other philosophers who seemed to have knowledge about the true nature of reality thousands of years before we started to discover similar things. How would they have known? There are so many intriguing mysteries of the past that are real head scratchers, like the fact that multiple Mesopotamian societies had knowledge of our solar system, the planets, their orbits, eclipses and much more, well before we ever did.

It’s just as mysterious as “ether” being used in the passage quoted above.

There are also fascinating descriptions about the nature of reality found throughout the ages, and it seems that quantum mechanics was described long ago, and ‘known’ of long before we ever stumbled across the field and named it ourselves.

Quantum mechanics is the study of matter at the smallest scale, and it’s weird because matter, at this scale, behaves and is governed by laws that are completely different from matter at a larger scale. Spooky things are observed that really make no sense, unless you factor consciousness into the equation. Quantum physics has opened the door to ‘non-material’ science, and the fact that empty space is not really empty, that it’s actually full of energy and that factors associated with consciousness can actually have a measurable effect on our physical material world, is mind-altering and has huge implications.

Distinguished Scientists Gather To Emphasize – Matter Is Not The Only Reality


This is why the legendary John Wheeler told us,  “No point is more central than this, that space is not empty, it is the seat of the most violent physics.”

“Space is actually not empty and it’s full of energy…The energy in space is not trivial there’s a lot of it and we can actually calculate how much energy there is in that space and that reality might actually come out of it. Everything we see is actually emerging from that space.”
– Nassim Haramein

The properties of space specifically have been postulated by many, from ancient Vedic philosophy, Eastern Mystics, various ancient civilizations throughout human history all the way to Descartes, Einstein, Newton and more. Humans are curious beings, and our quest to discover “what is” will never end.

“And they allowed Apollonius to ask questions; and he asked them of what they thought the cosmos was composed; but they replied; “Of elements.” “Are there then four?” he asked. “Not four,” said Larchas,  “but five.” “And how can there be a fifth,” said Apollonius, “alongside of water and air and earth and fire?” “There is the ether,” replied the other, “which we must regard as the stuff of which gods are made; for just as all mortal creatures inhale the wire, so do immortal and divine natures inhale the ether.” “Am I,” said Appollonius, “to regard the universe as a living creature?” “Yes,” said the other. – The Life of Apollonius of Tyana, Philostratus, 220AD (source)

Above is a massage describing this ’empty space,’ which many physicists refer to today as the quantum vacuum, or the ether.

“All perceptible matter comes from a primary substance, or tenuity beyond conception, filling all space, the akasha or luminiferous ether, which is acted upon by the life giving Prana or creative force, calling into existence, in never-ending cycles all things and phenomena.”
– Nikola Tesla, Man’s Greatest Achievement,

What Plato Was Talking About

One of the foremost thinkers and philosophers of all time, Manly P. Hall, describes Plato’s passage in his book, The Secret Teachings of All Ages, and it comes at a time where he is describing multiple ‘elementals’ which exist on our Earth, but inhabit the invisible world, existing in another vibration or the ether, if you will, but sometimes appearing in our ‘vibration’ as well.

The fact that Plato/Socrates was aware of this reality thousands of years before we were, gives him even more credibility when describing it’s properties, and those that may dwell within this region of ‘space.’ Are these the ‘ghosts’ and ‘spirits’ that are supposedly seen by many today? Does what we label as ‘paranormal’ activity have anything to do this?

Other realms of reality that our senses cannot pick up on have been written about for years, and again, other realms that our senses cannot pick up on have already been measured and detected. Supposed devices have even been manufactured that utilizes this knowledge in order to develop power generating machines.

“Much to my surprise, these concepts have been proven in hundreds of laboratories around the world, but have not really seen the light of day.”
– 
Dr. Brian O’Leary, former NASA Astronaut and Princeton Physics Professor (source)

Interesting to think about, isn’t it? How so many of our ancients had knowledge of things that were unable to be discovered without the use of our advanced technology is truly a mystery, and there are literally uncountable examples in historical literature that span thousands of years.

It seems, in my opinion anyway, that humanity is moving towards an era where these understandings are returning to Earth, they are emerging again, and at a time where we desperately need them. These concepts have huge implications, and we’ve written about the non-material world in depth in multiple articles

5 ‘bad’ foods that are actually good for you

These unjustly maligned foods are making a comeback, hopefully to your kitchen.

Dietary advice is notoriously fickle. It is constantly evolving, sometimes based more on fads than actual research, and it has an unfortunate tendency to slot foods into ‘good’ and ‘bad’ categories. Many foods, however, are not so black and white. They can be part of a well-rounded diet when eaten in moderation. The following foods may have bad reputations in your eyes, but deserve reconsideration for some good reasons.

1. White potatoes

Long seen as a starchy food with little nutritional value, white potatoes are actually quite healthy. Russet potatoes have the highest glycemic index, while red and new potatoes have moderate scores. And when cooked potatoes are eaten cold, their GI index plummets even further; in this form they have lots of resistant starch, which is good for your gut.

“One medium baked russet potato, with skin, supplies twice as much potassium as a banana (952 mg, one-fifth of a day’s worth), along with fibre (4 g), protein (4.5 g), vitamin C, B vitamins, calcium and magnesium. All that for only 164 calories.” (via Globe and Mail)

2. Eggs

You can say goodbye to insipid egg-white omelettes; yolks are now where it’s at. Eggs have traditionally been criticized for being high in cholesterol, but the yolks are actually packed with nutrients:

“Choline (the nutrient in egg yolk) is a belly-fat fighter that promotes cell activity, liver function, and the transportation of nutrients throughout the body.” (via Eat This, Not That)

From an ethical standpoint, eggs are a great source of protein that does not require the death of an animal, so long as they’re taken from hens that are cared for properly and allowed a normal, free-range life. Keep your own (I do!) if you’re doubtful.

3. Pasta

You might be scratching your head at this one, but even white pasta can be part of a healthy diet. Dietitian Leslie Beck told the Globe and Mail that, “Surprisingly, white pasta made from semolina flour scores low on the glycemic index scale” and “a meal of pasta with marinara sauce is an exceptional source of lycopene, an antioxidant believed to guard against heart disease and certain cancers.”

Of course, this doesn’t mean you should start eating it twice daily as I once did while living in Italy years ago (and gained 30 lbs in the process), but if eaten in moderation alongside sources of protein and lots of vegetables, it doesn’t hurt. I’d also add that it’s a great way to eat vegetarian and to get homemade food on the table fast.

4. Nuts

Nuts used to be condemned for their high levels of saturated fat, but now a number of dietitians and researchers have changed their stance on saturated fat, saying there’s insufficient evidence to conclude that it’s linked to heart disease. Plus, it is silly to eliminate an entire food category when it has so much else to offer. New York-based nutritionist Lisa Mosokvitz wrote:

“While nuts and seeds do contain some saturated fats, they’re also chock full of nutrients from heart-healthy fiber, MUFAS (mono-unsaturated fats), omega-3s, bone-building magnesium, calcium and energizing iron.”

5. Chocolate

This happy pronouncement is based on the fact that dark chocolate (not the super-processed, sugar-loaded bars next to the cash) is rich in flavonoids, which are stress-reducing, fat-blasting antioxidants. Additional research has even found that habitual dark chocolate intake is related to improved cognitive performance; in other words, it makes you smarter. For best results, stick to dark chocolate that’s at least 74% cocoa.

Silver Where Art Thou? Silver Demand Rose 17% Last Year While Supply Actually Fell

Russian Silver ~ silver has risen over 17% from its lows in 2016.

For How Long will the Era of Cheap Silver Prices Continue?

One of the running themes of the silver market since the economy recovered from the financial crisis has been an apparent disconnect between silver prices and the realities of supply and demand.

Even as demand for the precious metal has consistently been strong from both investors and industry, the price of silver has stagnated between about $15 and $20 per ounce. Essentially, silver prices have gone sideways for years.

However, it’s still worth noting that silver has risen over 17% from its lows in 2016.

Gold has been somewhat stronger over that period by comparison: The yellow metal is up about 24% from its 2016 nadir. The gold-to-silver price ratio is now near its highest (in favor of gold) in a decade.

As far as fundamentals are concerned, this relationship seems backward. New data from the Silver Institute reveals that silver demand rose last year while supply actually fell.

The Strange Logic of the Silver Market

This dynamic—falling supply and rising demand—would seem to be the perfect recipe for higher silver prices.

What makes the historically high level of the gold-silver ratio especially odd is how silver is used in industrial applications. Whereas much of the existing gold supply (before even accounting for newly mined gold) is recycled, roughly half of the silver that is produced each year gets used up by industry.

As a result, the annual growth and replenishment of the silver supply is not nearly as high as mining output would imply at first glance.

Moreover, the latest mining data hardly suggests a supply glut. The numbers from the Silver Institute, which were supplied by research from GFMS Reuters, show that silver production dropped for the second consecutive year in 2017 after thirteen straight years of rising output.

It was also the fifth consecutive year of a supply deficit from silver mines.

Jamie Dimon President and chief executive officer of JP Morgan Chase,

An Era of Cheap Silver Prices, But For How Long?

It begs the question: Why is silver undervalued in such an environment?

There is a simple answer to the question posed in this article’s headline: The supply deficit apparently means nothing.

It may be a moot point because, unlike the global gold market, silver futures trading is relatively small. This makes it possible for large institutional stakeholders—most notably JPMorgan—to influence [manipulate] the futures market disproportionately by buying or selling in very large quantities [via artificially represented paper buy sell].

Thus, merely a handful of deep-pocketed players can exert a considerable degree of control over silver prices.

Although some have dismissed JPMorgan’s outsized influence over silver as a conspiracy theory, the bank’s massive position in silver is a matter of public knowledge and open discourse. There’s nothing secret about it. The logical conclusion about how this has impacted prices is manifest.

All of this suggests that silver prices are currently a bargain. Savvy investors should be taking advantage of this accumulation opportunity for as long as it lasts. – Everett Millman

Five “Conspiracy Theories” That Are Actually Supported By Mainstream Science

Telling the truth about a scandal that hasn’t been approved by the legacy media and their owners often yields a predictable result: You’ll be labeled a conspiracy theorist — even when there is plenty of evidence to support the truth. Comfortable lies may help some people sleep at night, but the truth is that many supposed “conspiracy theories” are actually real, and are supported by science. Who would have thought? Here are five truths that are widely misrepresented as conspiracy theories, and the evidence which supports them:

 

1. Atrazine disrupts, damages the endocrine system

Atrazine is on the fast-track to becoming one of the most widely used pesticides in the United States. And because of this, there is a high amount of it in groundwater. It is consistently detected in public water supplies — which in and of itself is really quite concerning. But when the profound potential for this toxic chemical to spur endocrine disruption is taken into account, atrazine becomes downright frightening.

Research led by Dr. Tyrone Hayes, a scientist from the University of California at Berkeley, has shown that in frogs, atrazine is capable of causing lasting endocrine damage. In males, the disruption to endocrine function can be so severe that it results in chemical castration. In one study, Hayes exposed 40 tadpoles to water tainted with atrazine, at a concentration of 2.5 parts per billion — well within the EPA’s allotment for drinking water.

Nearly one-tenth of the tadpoles that were reared in the atrazine-laden water became “functionally female,” according to Hayes. Despite reportedly being born male, they ended up producing eggs.

And as sources report, “After being exposed to atrazine, many of the 36 male-presenting frogs reportedly showed decreased testosterone, reduced breeding gland size, poor laryngeal development, suppressed mating behavior, and reduced fertility. Similar effects have been seen in other amphibious creatures.”

Studies from Purdue University and other esteemed research teams have found similar results regarding atrazine’s potential to disrupt the endocrine system — even at amounts regarded by federal agencies as “safe.” Indeed, it would seem they are emphatically notsafe. Perhaps that’s why Europe banned atrazine. So, why is it still used in the U.S.?

 

2. Cellphones cause brain tumors

Is this really that far-fetched? That cellphones produce radiation is well established at this point — as is radiation’s connection to cancer. It’s often reported that because cellphones produce a different type of radiation (compared to say, nuclear radiation), it poses no health risk. But numerous scientific studies have said otherwise. Indeed, the risk of cellphone use is widely under-reported.

Recently, research again implicated cellphones as a player in the cancer-causing game: This time, mobile devices were linked to brain and heart tumors. In a study of rats, exposure to radio frequency radiation produced by cellphones led to the onset of a few different types of cancer — including rare Schwann cell tumors in the brain and heart.

At a 2016 conference, one doctor bravely declared that the potential for cellphones to cause cancer was obvious. “The weight of the evidence is clear: Cell phones do cause brain cancer,” stated Dr. Devra Davis, president of the Environmental Health Trust. Children are particularly susceptible to the woes of cellphones, and Davis contended further that pregnant women should be especially careful about their cellphone use and storage. “Keep the phone away from the abdomen — especially toward the end of pregnancy,” she cautioned.

There have been multiple warnings about the threat of cancer posed by cellphones, but many refuse to acknowledge the science that backs it up.

 

3. Chemtrails and geoengineering are real

Mentioning the word “chemtrails” is a great way to earn the scorn of mainstream media pundits and their ilk. But a quick search of the term “geoengineering” yields a number of results — including a Geoengineering program at University of Oxford. The program page notes that stratospheric aerosols (more commonly known as chemtrails) are one tool of choice in the geoengineering industry.

There are many reports on the facts about geoengineering efforts. While there are many facets to the geoengineering scheme, chemtrails have long been one of the most easily visible tactics — and also the most denied. According to the U.S. government’s own records, aerosol spraying efforts have been underway for decades. Even NASA has reportedly admitted to spraying lithium into the atmosphere. And in 2017, an EPA scientist was fired for sounding the alarm on the dangers of spraying aluminum into the atmosphere.

These efforts may be an attempt at controlling the climate — but as many have warned, geoengineering may come with a hefty price.

It seems that the only thing “fake” about geoengineering are the claims that it isn’t happening.

 

4. Fluoride is a neurotoxin

The mass fluoridation of the American people is probably one of the greatest shams of all time. First and foremost, there is no evidence to support the claim that fluoride consumption prevents cavities. Fluoride is not an essential nutrient (quite the opposite, really) and it is not necessary for human health in any way, shape or form.

But it’s not just “nonessential,” this compound is actually quite dangerous to human health — especially when it comes to the health of your brain. Nearly 60 studies have reported a link between fluoride consumption and a reduction in IQ.

Water fluoridation has also been linked other health problems, like bone loss, cancer, and negative effects on the immune system, thyroid and pineal gland. Many have likened the fluoridation of public water supplies to mass medication, especially given fluoride’s link to lower IQs in children and other neurological impairments. Even research from Harvard University has shown this potential for harm.

There is no shortage of reasons to end water fluoridation, but mainstream media and their keepers surely don’t want you to know about that.

 

5. Vaccines contain mercury, aborted fetal cells and other hazardous ingredients

Last but certainly not least is perhaps the most widely contested truth of all: Vaccines are a veritable cocktail of unsavory ingredients. From thimerosal in flu shots to aluminum adjuvants to human diploid cells from fetal tissue, there’s no shortage of things to be disgusted with when it comes to vaccines — or the vaccine industry’s propaganda, for that matter.

Despite media attempts at misinforming the public, the FDA admits that some vaccines still contain thimerosal as a preservative — and some vaccine-makers still use thimerosal as part of their “manufacturing process.”

As the FDA itself notes, thimerosal is 50 percent mercury by weight — and a thimerosal-containing vaccine will deliver a 25-microgram dose of mercury to its recipients that are over the age of three. Children under three get a half-dose, which means they’re still being injected with over 12 micrograms of mercury. This may not sound like a lot, but as Trace Amounts explains — that is more than enough to do harm. A child would have to weigh 550 pounds to safely withstand a 25-microgram dose of mercury. Mercury is a toxic heavy metal with no currently identified safe level of exposure. It does not belong in any vaccine, whether it’s being labeled as “preservative” or a “manufacturing process” agent.
