“Trust the unknown and know that you are in the hands of God… There will come a time when you count on the unseen… The brain is at 3D, but you are not. A new integration is upon you. The unseen things come into your life and begin working. And you haven’t got a clue why except that you know you’re connected. That’s all you have to know.” ~ Kryon
Kryon explains why you must not try to force things to happen in your life and instead just let go and let God.
A few weeks ago, three friends on Facebook told me that they wished for my death.
One of them I didn’t really know. He freaked out when I calmly suggested there were viable treatment options for those with Covid. He responded: “Stay out of my life!! I hope you get Covid and die!”
The other two friends were people I knew in college 45 years ago, one was my freshman year roommate, and the other guy introduced me to my first wife. He suggested that I prove Darwin’s theory and perish from the virus, the other just basically said I deserved what was coming as a selfish unvaccinated science-denier.
Covid’s willing executioners.
I know Facebook is certainly not the ideal place for reasonable discourse. As a psychologist, however, I do find it an interesting sample of a certain extreme way of thinking and behaving.
I also believe my experience with “friends” wishing for my demise is not unusual amongst those on that side of the fence in this debate. At least not unusual in thought.
As we all know, Facebook is a place of no inhibition. However, that said, I do believe it is a grave concern that human beings can be manipulated into this dark manner of thinking and feeling.
The operative word here is “manipulate.”
I do have faith, that for the most part, human beings have evolved from a cave mentality when confronting “other” in the culture. In cave days our psychology was programmed for survival, and it didn’t take much coercion to view members from another tribe that wandered into territory that was not their own to be immediately met with suspicion and fear.
Today, many thousands of years later, I think it takes a bit of manipulation to view “other” as fatally dangerous—but not much coercion, so it seems.
In this regard, it appears we have lost any scintilla of common sense. How can a government (or more likely an even higher organization of authority) convince the masses so easily that the unvaccinated are the mortal enemy with not a whiff of science in the argument? This clearly is a case of the emperor’s new clothes, but it isn’t going to take only a small innocent child’s exaltation that the emperor is naked to make everyone see what is true.
Why is this?
I’m afraid it is human nature — at least a small part of human nature — that these days needs a little coercion to come out in full bloom. For me, as a psychologist, it is more proof that there is an organized agenda, a “psyop” if you will, driving this whole debacle. When humans are put into this sort of psychological environment, their reaction is very predictable.
A friend of mine, Dr. Mark McDonald, who is a prominent psychiatrist and has a very prestigious practice in California, told me this in a recent conversation:
“Pandemic of the unvaccinated” has emerged as an expression of propaganda meant to provoke anger toward those who exercise medical choice in deferring or refusing the experimental vaccine. It is meant to isolate, shame, and humiliate anyone who will not agree to surrender medical autonomy to the state. It intentionally divides Americans against one another while simultaneously distracting attention from the medical reality of poor vaccine efficacy and vaccine harm. The expression is devoid of scientific meaning but full of coercive psychological power. It must be challenged.
Again, we see this idea of “coercive psychological power” come up in Dr. McDonald’s comment. Propaganda and the manipulation of the masses have been key tenets in totalitarian regimes. Pitting a person against a person is of utmost importance to having control over the masses. Even in Orwell’s dystopian novel, 1984, the opposition to the state was created by the state to keep the masses distracted, or so it is implied.
I am reminded of the Stanford Prison Experiment as well as Milgram’s obedience studies at Yale. Milgram set up an experiment where a subject, someone who did not know the parameters of the experiment, was in control of administering an electric shock to the “learner” if he/she failed to answer certain questions correctly.
The “learner” was also “in” on the experiment and in fact received no shocks. The authority figure egging on the subject was also, of course, “in” on the experiment and played the role of authority that the subject had to succumb to. “Just following orders” is the phrase that immediately comes to mind.
The current phenomenon regarding the persecution of the unvaccinated has some correlation with this experiment in that people, when pressured by the “mainstream authority or narrative,” tend to have little or no connection with a natural empathy toward the group identified as “other” (the unvaccinated).
The subjects in Milgram’s experiment consistently detached from the learner’s pain and tended to dissociate from them as fellow humans. They ceased to see them as in the same tribe as themselves; they were quickly reclassified as “other.”
The difference in the results of this experiment and the current situation is that “other” (the “learner”) posed no threat to the subject in Milgram’s experiment. He or she was just disobedient to authority, i.e., was not doing correctly what authority demanded him/her to do.
Now, in our present situation, the vaccinated are convinced by the authority that the unvaccinated are in fact a threat (as well as not being obedient to the parental agenda). Authority is doing this through any means available to them, and it makes no difference if these means have even the slightest scientific truth to them (they say of course it is all scientific, but with further scrutiny, it certainly is not).
We saw this early on with the mask compliance. Those wearing masks were identified as one particular tribe: the “good” tribe who possessed community values. Those not wearing masks, or complaining about them, were the other tribe: the bad tribe, who were selfish, stupid, and science deniers. (to paraphrase Orwell’s sheep in Animal Farm: “Four legs good (mask), two legs bad (no masks)”).
Now, this effort of segregation and persecution has moved to the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. It is not the “right” science that will disintegrate this tribal conflict: it is a psycho-social issue, not a pragmatic objective one.
My point is that those in the scientific and medical community who dissent from the demonization of the unvaxxed contend not only with opposing scientific views, but with ancient, powerful psycho-social forces. They can debate the science all they want, but they are up against something much bigger.
Daniel Goldhagen’s book, Hitler’s Willing Executioners (from which this article’s title is derived) presents a thesis that the persecution of the Jews in Hitler’s Germany was not only an exercise of obedience to Hitler’s ideology but was the result of a long history of German antisemitism. This very well could be true, but in my opinion, this historic antisemitism was only the hook that made it easier for Hitler to hang his ideology.
Today’s willing executioners do not need a history of racial discrimination to hang their hatred of anti-vaxxers, but instead rely on a simple identification of “other” (unvaccinated) and a hatred for those who “don’t care about me, or those that I love.” The key common denominator it seems is the common concept of caring for others before caring for yourself, which, ironically, is clearly not the true psychological operator in this situation.
These people seem to care far more for themselves and their own safety (and their opinion) than they do for the rights and freedoms (and safety) of others — take the jab to save me, never mind you might die or get sick in the process.
So what we are actually experiencing is “normal” — normal from the perspective that human beings have the innate capability of being all sorts of ugly things, particularly when gathered in crowds: tribes.
If coerced and manipulated in a particular way, as has happened countless times in world history, they can become unconscious, irrational, nonempathic, monsters. I will close with a paragraph from another excellent article by author CJ Hopkins (which can be found in its entirety on Off-Guardian’s website) “The Approaching Storm”:
Thus, their plan is to make our lives as miserable as possible, to segregate us, stigmatize us, demonize us, bully, and harass us, and pressure us to conform at every turn.
They are not going to put us on the trains to the camps. GloboCap is not the Nazis. They need to maintain the simulation of democracy.
So, they need to transform us into an underclass of “anti-social conspiracy theorists,” “anti-vaxxer disinformationists,” “white-supremacist election-result deniers,” “potentially violent domestic extremists,” and whatever other epithets they come up with, so that we can be painted as dangerously unhinged freaks and cast out of society in a way that makes it appear that we have cast out ourselves.

Spend a few minutes within this text and be encouraged on how you can feel free.
Dr. Christiane Northrup (especially for women) and Dr. Joe Dispensa (for all), have encouraged me over and over again through their written word. They both offer life wisdom, so specifically you may feel you have your own personal guru by your side.
If you want to experience freedom of any sort, you must be willing to change. Desiring to be free implies you feel stuck.Being stuck is where disease of mind or body occurs. However, when you are free, then your life flows like a beautiful stream.Yes, there are still rocks and challenging courses, but you move past them.Movement is the key.Stagnation equals illness, just as unresolved anger, stress, or not living your truth.
Where to begin?How do I want to feel?
Eat clean and be rested. It repairs and reboots our immune system.
If you want your skin to be repaired and look better quickly, try this three-day nutritional facelift from Dr. Nick Perricone, author of The Wrinkle Cure: eat nothing but wild-caught salmon, watercress, blueberries, and cantaloupe for three days. All of these foods are rich in antioxidants and other micronutrients that will help heal your gut, reduce inflammation and oxidative stress and contribute to glowing skin.
Christiane shares, “‘Beauty’ sleep is no joke. Everything is connected, so as you change your diet, combat stress by learning methods to relax deeply, breathe fully, release old resentments and anger, move your body joyously, laugh more, and replenish yourself with a good night’s sleep most nights, you’ll look and feel better in every way.” (Goddesses Never Age).She also shares how to stimulate every organ in your body with a tennis ball:rub your foot over it back and forth.Then use it to give yourself a back massage.Put the ball behind your back against a wall move it around your back.
Talk to Yourself
Goals, affirmations:they don’t make something happen, they make something welcome.(Christiane Northtrup)Divine beloved, please change me into a person that always encourages, is courageous at new opportunities and is free from what others think.“Mental rehearsal primes the brain, it activates circuits so the brain is turned on and so we get up – we actually follow suit with our intention.”(Joe Dispenza)
If you can bring up the emotion of appreciation or thankfulness, and combine it with a clear intention, you’re now beginning to embody the event emotionally. You’re changing your brain and body. Specifically, you’re chemically instructing your body to know what your mind has philosophically known. We could say that you’re in a new future in the present moment. You’re no longer using familiar, primitive emotions to keep you anchored to the past; you’re now using elevated emotions to drive you into a new future. (Joe Dispenza)
7 Steps to Freedom!The Natural State of Being
1. Write down your goal. 80% of people who do this accomplish it.
2. Get clear on sponsoring thoughts, the whys…they are the fuel for passion. Gives your body a taste for the future.
3. Review, Rewind, Remind. This changes your brain.
4. Take it out for a test drive, hold yourself accountable.Inspiration comes after a few times of practicing, then momentum occurs.Genius – being uncomfortable and being OK with it.You have to train the brain to “sit” “stay”.
5. Track your changes Create a simple reward system.
6. Change your energy, change your life. You must come out of the resting state everyday. Seems unnatural at first…we are lifting ourselves to new places of energy. Key ingredient:I am going to master this day and I am not going to get up until I feel as I should feel.
The old model of feeling is Newtonian. The new model is quantum:feeling what you want. “Knowingness”. You just know it is going to happen. Energy is solidified and you are in the flow. This is the Natural State of Being!
7. Invest in yourself. This is not selfish, it is healthy.Line up, queue your environment with notes to self: “You are so worth this!!” Be in love with life.

Your Self-Talk Could Lead to Depression
By Debra Atlas, Author
Growing up, I was a tomboy – always on the go. But inside? I was a mess – painfully shy, feeling inadequate and feeling like the black sheep of the family. I thought differently and I looked at things differently than they did. And as the second child, I came after a big brother who was just this side of brilliant while I struggled to be average-ish.
I also struggled with depression, although I’d be in my mid-forties before I was diagnosed. A lot of suffering happened along the way. And my self-talk – that constantly blathering inner critic in my head – was sometimes so vicious I’d want to cry.
Self-talk is what we say to ourselves about ourselves and/or about our actions. Often extremely negative, the chatter reveals our frustration, despair, regrets, and our doubts. We beat ourselves up with our self-talk. Those of us who live with depression find our self-talk eats away at our self-confidence and can lead us deep down into the depression pit.
Dr. Gray WInch says, “Calling yourself names in the process of self-examination, putting yourself down, and treating yourself dismissively and punitively adds no value whatsoever.” Negative self-talk, he says, will “set you up to make more mistakes and have more hurt because you’re undercutting your confidence, supersizing your insecurities, and sabotaging your motivation and determination.”
For years, my self-talk was like this:
“You Are a Failure! And you’ll keep on being a Failure, no matter what you do or how hard you try!”
Life is tough enough without us getting in our own way. Negative self-talk will do just that.
Therapist Elizabeth Scott, says, “Focusing on negative thoughts may lead to decreased motivation as well as greater feelings of helplessness,” all of which has been linked to depression. Negative self-talk reduces our ability to see opportunities that show up or if we can see them, limits our ability to take advantage of them. We just don’t have the energy to take action on our behalf when we’re depressed.
So what choice do we have? If our self-talk is constant, what can we do about it? Plenty!
The first thing is to become aware that you HAVE negative self-talk. Most of us go around not noticing it and, if we do, we think it’s the honest truth. But our negative self-talk is our perception of reality, not reality itself. But there’s more.
We all make mistakes – errors in judgment; we forget things; we do something we wish we hadn’t. We’re human. But none of these makes us a bad person or makes us someone not worthy of love or of being successful. That negative self-talk is simply yapping And you’re not stuck with it..
Don’t get me wrong. It takes effort to shift anything and shifting negative self-talk definitely takes work. But it can be done.
Here are the basics of how to help yourself make that shift.
Start to notice what you’re saying / thinking. You can’t change anything until you know what you’re doing.
Acknowledge how often you’re thinking / saying those negative thoughts. The more you do, the more obvious it gets.
Begin to “catch” yourself. You’ll discover how pervasive your negative self-talk is.
As you catch yourself, see how you could turn that negative into something different / more positive. In Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) it’s called “reframing” – turning something negative into something positive that moves you forward.
Taking these steps may be uncomfortable but keep at it. The more you persist, the easier it becomes. And ultimately it becomes a new useful habit. Remember – would you let someone else talk to your best friend the way you talk to and about yourself? Probably not. So stop doing it! This may just help you step back from depression.
How Should a Group Apologize to People They Harmed?
When you’ve harmed another person, a sincere apology can go a long way toward helping them to forgive you and move on. Science suggests that acknowledging wrongdoing and promising to make amends can help relationships recover from past hurts.
What about when the harm has been done between large groups of people, rather than individuals? In the wake of a war or centuries of systematic discrimination, mere apologies may never seem like enough.
For one thing, it’s hard to trust the “other side” has good intentions, especially when harm has been great, many individuals are involved, and degrees of remorse are unclear. Also, intergroup apologies are traditionally offered by representatives (like presidents or CEOs) rather than actual perpetrators, and are often highly scripted and rehearsed. That can lead victims to dismiss the apologies as fake and insincere, impeding conflict resolution.
Now, a new study led by Samuel Nunney of Cardiff University has identified steps that can vastly improve intergroup apologies. By attending more carefully to what’s needed to rebuild trust and protect victims, groups who’ve done harm can help bring peace and reconciliation in conflict situations.
Ingredients of intergroup apology
The researchers used as raw material a real-world example: a written apology issued by the Irish Republican Army (IRA) for their role in civilian deaths during “The Troubles” in Northern Ireland. However, they manipulated its content to see how that affected the willingness of British citizens to forgive.
In some experiments, the researchers added a concluding paragraph that conveyed the IRA’s recognition of issues needing attention to promote peace. In particular, the amended apology addressed structural issues (like power imbalances, the need for reparations), relational issues (rebuilding lost trust), and issues related to group identity (respect for group status and countering discrimination).
In other cases, the apologies were changed to include expressions of remorse, shame, or guilt. And sometimes the factors and emotional expressions were combined in different ways to see how they might augment each other to increase forgiveness.
After reading a version of the apology, participants reported on how sincere, remorseful, trustworthy, and believable the perpetrator appeared to them. They also said whether they thought the perpetrator should be forgiven, answering with a simple yes or no. Finally, they were asked if they agreed with statements like, “It is important that the wrongs done to us are never forgotten” or “Britain and Northern Ireland will never move on until the events are forgiven.”
Analyzing the results, the researchers found some interesting patterns. For one, when apologies included not just reparations, but acknowledgement of relational and group identity issues, those apologies led people to see the IRA as more trustworthy and sincere. This more favorable perception of the IRA, in turn, led people to be more willing to consider forgiving the group for past wrongs.
When apologies fail
According to study coauthor Anthony Manstead, these findings suggest that apologies could be more effective if they considered victims’ needs more carefully.
“If you take socio-emotional factors seriously in your intergroup apology, then it has a greater chance of being effective, where effective means greater forgiveness,” he says. “And, hopefully, greater forgiveness is a step towards reconciliation.”
In yet another experiment, structural, relational, and group-identity issues were added to the apology separately, but that didn’t produce the same results. For example, offering reparations alone did not make people trust the IRA more or want to forgive them, which suggests that reparations, though helpful, are not enough to move peace forward.
“Putting these all together seems to add to a more effective apology package,” says Manstead.
He and Nunney also found that when apologies included messages acknowledging shame, people were more willing to trust and believe the apologies—and to forgive. Even though past research has shown that guilt or remorse is important in peace processes, Manstead didn’t find that in this study.
“Shame is a more potent emotion,” he says. “If you’re expressing collective shame, you’re acknowledging that your group has some bad elements, which appears costly to you and makes you seem more sincere to others.”
Unfortunately, in the real world, many people don’t consider these social-emotional elements, says Manstead. He points to men accused of sexual misconduct in the United States as an example, saying that much of the time, they only reluctantly admit shame. In fact, apologies for misconduct often have to be extracted from them under duress, which makes it difficult for victims to believe the perpetrator is truly remorseful and willing to make amends.
What makes an apology work
On the other hand, he says, you can look to the actions of former Chancellor of Germany, Willy Brandt, who dropped to his knees before the Holocaust Memorial in 1970. The spontaneous acknowledgement of shame and remorse had a much deeper impact on people than scripted apologies.
“That was deeply moving for the people who witnessed it,” says Manstead. “It was a very effective way of getting across the sincerity of the apology that he was trying to make for his country’s actions.”
Of course, it’s not easy to create peace between groups, and a spontaneous display of shame may not be enough. In fact, as this study found, it’s best to include both shame and acknowledgement of impediments to peace if you really want to reconcile with victims of group harm. And though the results of this study align with past research on effective apologies, there is much more work to be done before assuming that an inclusive apology will work as well in a high-stakes peace process.
Still, seeing that the way we approach group apologies can make a difference gives hope for reconciliation. Perhaps if groups involved in conflicts could acknowledge the many levels of harm they’ve caused victims, express shame, and promise to work toward reparations, it could pave the way toward more peace between groups in the future.
“An intergroup apology without these factors runs the risk of being seen as insincere and untrustworthy, and is therefore likely to be brushed off or ignored or seen as ineffective by the victim group,” says Manstead. “I’m not a policy person, but I think that this is a key message to take away from our research.”

How to Live Free, Despite the Circumstances
Have you ever thought, this is heaven or this is hell? The terms heaven and hell are a metaphor representing states of being. We have a lot of choice in how we experience life. It literally can be hell or heaven, despite the circumstances. How this occurs is a matter of priorities. Do you seed your consciousness or fall victim to events? Pain in this life will occur, it’s part of the human experience. Why? We were created with feelings and emotions as well as choice, so with that comes lots of ups and downs. Some life experiences we have control over and some we don’t. Our response can be to suffer or to grow from them. It is all based in perspective.
Seed Your Consciousness
Seeding your consciousness is a great way to prepare your self for times of painful growth. As humans, we are built for challenging times. We also have everything within us to thrive, but many of us have forgotten. Let’s remember together and create more heaven than hell. Plant some wisdom seeds and watch them blossom.
A Course in Miracles workbook is a beneficial for planting seeds, developing awareness and for remembering who you are and what you are capable of being and doing.
Major tenants: You are the light of the World and your function is forgiveness. Grievances hide the light of the world in you. You are entitled to miracles.
The following is a huge teaching in A Course of Miracles: I am under no laws but God’s. Laws are developed from the ego, the mind, the world. This is the perfect statement of freedom! “I am under no laws but God’s, for example: laws of nutrition, of immunization, of medication, of body’s protection, of friendship, of ‘good’ relationships, of reciprocity, of religions”
Balance is the Key
Now take this freedom and balance it with your purpose: forgiveness as the light of the world. How do you perceive someone that has a differing opinion than you? Let go of grievances and allow unconditional love to flow through you. See the miracle behind the struggle. Choose to see the light in the other person. Know, know, know things are temporary. Recognize we are all on a journey to something greater than we can even imagine. Feel this and live the truth of it, even before it becomes a reality. This is our power! This is our ability to right a wrong.
Straight from A Course in Miracles:
3 Think of the freedom in the recognition that you are not bound by all the strange and twisted laws which you have set up to save you. You really think that you would starve unless you have stacks of green paper strips and piles of metal discs. You really think a small round pellet or some fluid pushed into your veins through a sharpened needle will ward off death. You really think you are alone unless another body is with you.
4 It is insanity that thinks these things. You call them laws and put them under different names in a long catalogue of rituals that have no use and serve no purpose. You think you must obey the “laws” of medicine, of economics, and of health. Protect the body, and you will be saved.
5 These are not laws, but madness. The body is endangered by the mind that hurts itself. The body suffers that the mind will fail to see it is the victim of itself. The body’s suffering is a mask the mind holds up to hide what really suffers. It would not understand it is its own enemy, that it attacks itself and wants to die. It is from this your “laws” would save the body. It is for this you think you are a body.
6 There are no laws except the laws of God. This needs repeating over and over until you realize that it applies to everything that you have made in opposition to His Will. Your magic has no meaning. What it is meant to save does not exist. Only what it is meant to hide will save you.
7 The laws of God can never be replaced. We will devote today to rejoicing that this is so. It is no longer a truth which we would hide. We realize instead it is a truth which keeps us free forever. Magic imprisons, but the laws of God set free. The light has come because there are no laws but His.

You Were Born for These Times
contains within it the seed
of an equal or greater benefit ”
― Napoleon Hill
What if the very challenges of these times are providing opportunities for you to remember your true nature, connect with your fundamental inspiration, and sense your core purpose? What if there is great potential value in the situations you are sorting through, problems you are solving, decisions you are making, and plans you can put in place that are completely different than anything you or your family has faced before?
We are truly living in dramatic times, with so many temptations to indulge in grief, anxiety, and anger. Amidst all these emotions, people can sometimes feel divided. They can feel justified that their views of truth are clearly the best, being fact and science-based; it’s therefore obvious that conflicting views must be incorrect. But is that assumption necessarily true? Or might truth not be as synonymous with certainty as we sometimes presume?
A friend of mine recently wrote, “Never has it become more apparent that you can be standing next to another person and be existing in two completely alternate realities.” Which leads me to wonder whether quantum uncertainty might be driving the Truth Wars? As far as the term “Truth Wars” goes, it’s referring to an idea that most people don’t (yet) associate with the way people are likely changing reality, based on what they’re focusing on. Just as we can experience Placebo Effects, we can also get embroiled in belief-based disagreements that play out in reality as we keep finding the proof and facts and scientific evidence we think we need to support the beliefs we already have. So these Truth Wars are quite likely very old, and they’ve likely been happening throughout human history.
I hope people can realize that no matter what’s happened, miracles can (and do!) happen in an instant, and they happen all the time. I sometimes refer to quantum jumps as “the science of miracles,” since we are now finding scientific theories and experimental evidence to support that we can expect to sometimes witness different histories than we remember as if we’ve jumped to another physical reality. We can experience healing and health regardless of what has happened, and it helps to have a solid goal in mind.
For example, one thing that got me through finding my way out of longhaul covid was experiencing the idea that longhaul covid might be a gift and blessing–that perhaps it was offering me something I’d never find any other way. I saw and felt how it aged me about 30 years instantly, with lots of details about how and where I’d get arthritis, and tremors, and loss of balance and loss of vision and hearing, etc. I then realized all these things as well as allergies and asthma could be backed off, by listening to learn what the body needs to heal.

And miraculously, my dawning realization that I needed help and healing coincided with the moment when I sent a message to FutureMe last August 2020 to me this year, in late August 2021. With 20:20 hindsight, I can now see how I wove together possible realities when I sent love and blessings to my future self, with this message in my conversation with FutureMe:
I’ve been sheltering in place for more than five months, and all travel plans have canceled. It’s hard for me to imagine what you’re going through now, but whatever it is, please trust that all is well, and you have a great deal of love and support! And always remember to let God do the ‘heavy lifting.’ It’s enough each day just to show up, and do what you are able to do, and care for who and what you are able to care for.
When I received this message from myself, I experienced an extraordinary sense of feeling both sides of this two-way communication of love, gratitude, kindness, compassion, and faith. I benefited on both sides of this exchange, having received a flash of insight that this moment was coincident with profoundly pivotal moments in my life. Shortly after sending this FutureMe message I received a flash of insight, which influenced my path of healing starting in autumn 2020. And I received a simultaneous flash of insight and inspiration in autumn 2021, when receiving this message from my earlier self, and acknowledging this remarkable connection.

I’d like to start out by saying that I absolutely love people and I adore relationships of all kinds…romantic, friendship, family, work, etc. But that doesn’t mean that it’s always easy relating to other people, am I right? I’ve come to learn, though that even the feisty, difficult, “Oh my freaking God I wanna rip my hair out” kind of relationships hold something dear to be cherished. The lessons we learn from our most trying times provided by our relationships, are what stretch and bend us, set our healthy limits and personal boundaries and no, that’s not a bad thing at all.
When we are being authentic in our personal boundaries, we treat ourselves in such a way that sets the standard for the rest of the world as well. So, there’s simply no room for “Joe Schmoe” to come prancing into your life treating you like a pail of garbage, because you simply don’t allow it into your field of existence. It’s saying something is better or worse than, it’s merely a recognition of a certain desired frequency, and they simply do not match up.
And this leads us to expectations which I’ve written about before and gotten a lot of great feedback for, so I’d like to give it another go, but with a twist. This time, let’s focus more on what we expect from OURSELVES rather than those around us.
In a previous article, What To Expect From You Everyday Expectations, I went into all of the various ways that we put our energy out across the realms of existence that we might not even be aware of. First off, you need to know that there are multiple realms and while interconnected they all “move” and “act” on their own accord; with their own style and uniqueness.
The different realms are physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and etheric and I highly suggest reading that article before continuing on, but even without knowledge of the realms, I bet you’ll find a useful tip or two in the words beyond…
Most often our relationship is bouts of giving and take and usually roles are clearly defined. But if those roles are ever challenged by one party or if something tremendous shifts, etc. then relationships as a whole can be entirely redefined or sadly even end at a whim’s notice. But alas, every relationship serves its purpose, and even those we expect to last until our dying days often fizzle and fade, and in the end, it’s really up to each individual to determine the final destination of where that relationship status lands in their heart once the usual connection is broken.
If two conscious individuals unite in a relationship, chances are much better than if and when the union ends, the departure will not be quite as dramatic as the typical relationship, because with awareness comes an understanding always of a purpose higher than ourselves and our emotional responses to any given moment in time. It also comes with the understanding of desires, motivations, the Ego, the self with a little s .vs a big S, etc., and if you’re lucky a knowing that each person is THEIR OWN SOURCE! Therefore just as the union came together in love, so can each person allow such a respectful and honest, unattached letting goes if and when the time comes to do so.
Sadly, so many relationships begin in a dazed and confused stupor of puppy love infatuation of what we want people to be. We refuse to foresee the flaws we know will eventually show themselves and temporarily convince ourselves these people are unwavering perfection, and we delight in the fact they think the same of us! Oh, what a high! 🙂 But when we instead really see people from the get-go for what they are and not what we want them to be nor what we can tell they’re trying to be, we will understand better that everyone is a mere traveler here, that everyone is still learning and growing and that while technically we all are perfect because we are of Divine Creation, we are here to experience the illusion of imperfection, so that we can expand in third-dimensional reality and live as conscious creators ourselves. So, it’s wise when falling in love to simply not fall with blinders on.
For most of us, though in the dust-storm high of new love, we start to dump our expectations on this new person to fulfill desires and wants in our lives, and if they do we stay the path, but if and when they don’t, especially if they were at first, then we twist our version of who we thought we knew and loved and withdraw, don’t we? And the games begin…
How about we try something new? How about we stop using one another as our source of happiness and realize it’s always been US?
If we teach our children to go within for strength, courage, and ultimately to love themselves enough to trust their instincts, to set healthy boundaries, etc. then perhaps we can raise the next generation to not look to MTV to see what is acceptable to wear or how they should talk. How about we instead raise independent, beautiful, kind-hearted kids that not only love themselves but love each other and bring this into adulthood? Then we will be granted a new generation that knows to go within to find their confidence; to BE their own Source. Remember, they don’t call it SELF-worth for nothing!
That sounds like a great plan right there, humanity…let’s get on it! 🙂 So. Much. Love. <3

Ever since it began, the pandemic has been a crash course in uncertainty. Safe behaviors, school openings, vaccination timelines, the job market, new variants—these have all seemed to change on a weekly basis, threatening our sense of security and stability.
Uncertainty is stressful and perhaps even harmful to our health, research suggests, and it can drive us to cling to our social groups to the exclusion of others. But a new study has uncovered a surprising upside to feeling uncertain: It might drive us to appreciate the little things in life.
Smell the roses
In one experiment, researchers stationed on a sidewalk handed out flyers that said one of two things: “Life is unpredictable: Stop and smell the roses” or “Life is constant: Stop and smell the roses.” A short distance away was a table with a dozen red roses on it and a sign matching the flyer they’d just received.
Research assistants hid behind a bush to see who stopped and who didn’t—and it was the people who read that life is unpredictable who buried their noses in the fragrant flowers, 2.5 times more often than the others.
Why? Savoring and appreciating the small things in life may be a coping response that our minds activate when we feel overwhelmed by the ambiguity of it all. Savoring pulls us out of fears and worries about a fuzzy future and into the clear, pleasurable sensations of right now.
“If the world is uncertain, it makes sense to take advantage of what you have now because it may not exist shortly,” explains Andrew L. Gregory, the lead author of the study.
The researchers found similar results in another experiment, where, instead of handing out flyers, they recruited nearly 400 people to watch videos. Some saw a video purportedly describing the conclusions from a scientific conference about how unpredictable and random our lives are, accompanied by chaotic graphs and rolling dice. Others saw a similar video, but with the opposite message, about life’s underlying order and structure. A final group saw a video about the history of trains.
Compared to the other two groups, those who watched the chaos video reported more intentions to savor life. They said that they should enjoy the present and appreciate simple things, and would linger on good feelings if something wonderful happened to them or a friend.
Savoring in real life
A final set of findings suggests that this effect does translate to everyday life, even if you don’t happen to come across a video or flyer about uncertainty. Here, researchers recruited over 6,000 people and pinged them up to a dozen times a day, asking how chaotic and unpredictable the world felt in that moment and whether they were savoring the present.
It turned out that when the world felt messy, people were more likely to be savoring their lives a few hours later, at the next ping.
Of course, the relentless uncertainty of the pandemic doesn’t lend itself to feeling mindful and appreciative all the time. But Gregory suspects that this pattern still holds.
Indeed, many people reported feeling grateful early on in the pandemic. One of our Thnx4 members, for example, journaled about missing out on her daily socializing at the neighborhood cafe and instead of making small talk with strangers on her morning walk. “It reminded me not only to appreciate but to seek positive experience,” she wrote.
While savoring may happen naturally, it’s also something we can practice deliberately when life feels unsettling. For example, you might share your good news or gratitude with others, or tune into the enjoyable sights, sounds, and smells around you. When you work on controlling your attention this way, Gregory says, you may feel like you have more control over your life in general.
The flyers and videos in these experiments are a good reminder that our sense of uncertainty is changeable. Based on that, it makes sense that reading political news or social media posts from our friends could influence how stable or chaotic our lives feel. Being selective about the media we consume could help. Or, says Gregory, when we’re feeling adrift, we could try reflecting on times in our life when we felt secure and certain.
Savoring isn’t the only potential upside to feeling uncertain. For people who are less well off, confronting a chaotic environment can actually drive them to prioritize community. In these ways and perhaps others, our brains try to protect us from the unpleasant but unavoidable uncertainty of life.

The People Are the Power. When We Unite, We Can Stop These Crimes Against Humanity! | Lurnpa
“I’m in this for the children. I’m in this for the people. I’m in this for humanity. And, I’m in this for Mother Earth. I stand with all who seek freedom. And, I will never ever give up on the children and future generations… I ask you to stand with all of humanity to end the senseless suffering across the planet that’s been perpetrated by corporations that are nothing but war mongers. All the conflict on the planet and all of these wars are bankers wars. Everything is by design. We have been socially engineered. We have a chance to unite as humanity and stand up. And, I’m calling on YOU ALL to stand with us because at the end of the day it’s the people power. The people are the power. And when we realize that and when we unite and stand together, we can stop these crimes against humanity. We can stop the genocide. And, most importantly, we can protect the children.” ~ Lurnpa
Since videos of Lurnpa speaking at the freedom rally (see HERE and HERE) have been circulating, we have seen an overwhelming unity form amongst the human community which we have dreamed of for many years. Seeing this unity being cultivated has brought relief and a new boost of energy to continue this fight that was beginning to take a toll on many of us who have been fighting for years and intergenerational – lifetimes.
Yes we are fighting, yes we are at war but we are not just soldiers or warriors, we are human. Lurnpa decided to put this short video together of explaining why he has embarked on this pilgrimage of creating a better world for the children through reasserting our freedom and Sovereignty as human beings.
Also from Lurnpa:
“The Indigenous of Australia are rising and standing with you to protect each and every one of you against this medical tyranny and this fraudulent govt. Under UN orders the queen decolonized Australia in 1973. The govt was meant to hold a referendum to let the people decide by referendum how to be governed they did not. they created a corporation and the fake Queen of Australia. they were also supposed to renegotiate a treaty with the Indigenous. They did not. This was a big mistake for them. It means that the only law that is valid here now is Indigenous lore. The tribal elders of all councils around Australia are coming together to stand down this govt. They will offer anyone who requests it a tribal card that you are under Indigenous lore. This has been tested and it works. They will not be able to touch you or force you to do anything. If they try there are legal repercussions on them personally. Soon we will be rallying against the govt and launching this. there need to be protests around the country in support of the indigenous who are protecting you and bringing our country out of this communist takeover. A call-out will be made. This is it, people. Stay strong. Be Ready.”
Ancient Technique for Creating Advanced State of Consciousness | Gregg Braden
Gregg Braden – New neurological research confirms our conscious and unconscious connection to the field underlying all reality. Gregg Braden discusses the various brain states known to science including the newly discovered states which help us to deeply and consciously connect with the Divine Matrix. These new layers of consciousness were discovered by scientists studying the meditation techniques of Tibetan monks. He shares techniques we can use to access the super-enhanced Gamma brain state by harmonizing the neurons in the heart with the neurons in the brain.
The Importance of Positivity and Self-Love and How to Cultivate Both with Crystals
Positive thoughts are a powerful way to improve your mental health. Research has shown that people who have positive thoughts have lower rates of depression and anxiety than those with negative ones. This is because positive thoughts reduce stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. Overall, self-love is crucial to our emotional well-being too. The more we love ourselves, the less likely we will feel depressed or anxious about anything in life – even if it’s something small like not finding a parking space! This blog post will discuss the importance of both things and provide ways to cultivate them with crystals, so you have more peace in your life!
Positivity opens up for growth by allowing us to see things more clearly. Having a positive perspective on the world will enable us to feel less overwhelmed by our daily experiences and enhance the ability to focus attention where needed. This can give you an edge in your career because when you’re feeling great and inspired, you will be better at making decisions that allow for progress towards your goals.
How to cultivate a positive mindset
Start your day by writing down three things that went well for you. This will help your brain focus on the positive aspects of life and reduce negativity towards stressful situations! First, think about how someone else’s success is an inspiration to you – seeing other people grow can allow you to feel like anything is possible! Second, mindfulness meditation has been scientifically proven time and again for its ability to increase happiness. To aid in your meditation, consider utilizing Zen Zen Rituals’ Soothe Anxiety Ritual, which comprises a combination of crystals promoting calmness and relaxation.
The importance of self-love
Of course, positivity isn’t just about seeing the good in situations and other people – it’s also about self-love and acceptance of yourself for who you are right now at this moment! This is one of the most important things to learn how to do to be happy with our lives because no matter what happens in life, there will always be imperfection. However, by accepting ourselves as we are now (flaws included), instead of criticizing or wishing we were someone else when something negative does happen, all we need to ask ourselves is: “How would I handle this if I was already content?” If you can answer that question honestly, you will see the beauty in everything and find your inner peace.
How to practice self-love
The first step is to be aware of what you’re thinking. When we are consumed with negative thoughts, it’s because they have become so automatic that we aren’t even conscious of them anymore! Rose quartz and Pink Opal have been found to aid tremendously when practicing self-love and essential oils such as Jasmine and Cedarwood. Being self-aware and observing your own behavior – especially how you talk to yourself about who and how you should be – will allow you to see when your actions are not in alignment with who you want to be. Once we become conscious of our thoughts, the next step is to replace them!

Does Quantum Uncertainty Drive the Truth Wars?
A friend of mine recently wrote, “Never has it become more apparent that you can be standing next to another person and be existing in two completely alternate realities.”
Those of us nodding our heads in recognition of the reality of this statement may wonder whether we might be literally living in different worlds. Are some groups of people seeing completely different facts and information? How can we best navigate this time when facts and scientific studies can often be found to support opposing sides of various issues? Sometimes, the facts and data can appear to be 100% contradictory, with one person saying yes, something is absolutely good, and another person saying no.
I’m hoping you can answer a question that has been bugging me for the longest time regarding our “fractured times.” Why are we so divided on our beliefs? … You’ve written and made a video about (there being) NO OBJECTIVE REALITY. Is it possible that both sides experience the reality they believe is true? That is, their truth is THE truth for them. I would love your thoughts on this.
This topic runs far deeper than meets the eye, and deserves closer examination. From my more than twenty years researching and reporting on reality shifts, quantum jumps, and the Mandela Effect, I naturally recognize the possibility that just as we might remember past events differently from friends or family members who were standing right next to us at those times, we also might literally be seeking–and finding–completely different, yet equally scientifically valid facts.
Certainty is a False Friend
Peter Lee opens his book, “Truth Wars” with the statement: “Certainty is a false friend in the quest for truth.”  While we often unconsciously associate the concept of truth with certainty, this statement makes sense from a quantum physics perspective (such as Werner Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle). And even before this new Quantum Age began, the western concept of the scientific method incorporates the concept of constantly seeking truth via ever-evolving scientific models. Ideally, scientists do not ever rest on laurels of success, but rather engage in the higher calling and pursuit of genuine knowledge, based on reproducible scientific studies.
Disinformation in the Post-Truth Era
The idea of disinformation has been around for quite a long time–so the observation of seemingly huge dichotomies between ideas of truth is nothing new. Typically, when the topic of disinformation comes up, it’s associated with terms like ‘alternate facts,’ denial, and post-truth. Author Lee McIntyre invites us to ponder how we’ve ended up in a “post-truth era, where ‘alternative facts’ replace actual facts, and feelings have more weight than evidence.” McIntyre points out that the term “post-truth” can be traced back to the 1990s, when it first appeared in a political story in a magazine. Peter Lee states toward the beginning of his book, “Truth Wars”:
We live in an age of crisis. There are many types of crisis, of course, but the three that serve as the focus for this book–climate change, military intervention and financial crisis–are widely claimed to be global in scale and potentially apocalyptic in severity. These crises all have one thing in common: they each provide political leaders with the incentive and justification to increasingly govern the lives of millions, even billions, of people through the enactment of policy and the allocation, or withdrawal, of resources. They add a new dimension to Harold Lasswell’s famous aphorism that politics is about who gets what, when, and how, because such decisions are based on specific truth claims and the policy priorities that emerge from them. 
Lee McIntyre, author of “Post Truth” provides us with further insights into these classical views of this topic, in his description of some fundamental roots of post-truth:
“I think that the main root of post-truth is science denial. This started in the 1950s with cigarette companies going into panic mode when scientists were about to publish a study that showed a link between cigarette smoking and cancer. They decided to “fight the science.” They hired their own experts, did bogus studies, bought full-page ads in newspapers, and got the word out that “no conclusive link between cigarette smoking and cancer has been established.” Well that’s actually true because—due to the problems with inductive reasoning—no conclusive causal relationship has ever been shown between ANY two things. What this did, though, was create doubt in the mind of the general public, and that was the point. The cigarette companies rode this wave of doubt for the next 40 years as they sold cigarettes. And the blueprint for this sort of science denial was then used for other science denial campaigns against acid rain, the ozone hole, evolution by natural selection, the Strategic Defense Initiative, and climate change. Without all that, I don’t think post-truth would have been successful. People learned to doubt facts and truth in general because they started with doubting scientific facts and truth about science. Add to this cognitive bias, the decline of traditional media, the rise of social media, and a dash of postmodernism, and you had a perfect environment for post-truth.” 
These factors are certainly concerning on a number of levels, yet we still haven’t gotten to the true core of the way we might sometimes be witnessing parallel realities right in front of us, in this environment where some groups are operating with completely different values, perspectives, and agendas.
What if there is no such thing as Objective Reality?
There is something going on with respect to news that a recent Physics Experiment Challenges Objective Reality–which I feel deserved to be the biggest news story of 2019. These scientific experimental results suggest there may be no such thing as objective reality, at least in the way that western collective consciousness typically presumes this foundational idea. Yes we can (and do) find what we are seeking. And yes, this does mean that we sometimes seem to be living in different worlds.
When I think of the way quantum physics disrupts many common assumptions–including scientific assumptions–the first thing that comes to my mind is the title of a wonderful paper published in 2015 in Contemporary Physics by physicists David Jennings and Matthew Leifer, No Return to Classical Reality. Jennings and Leifer audaciously start their paper with the fighting words,
“At a fundamental level, the classical picture of the world is dead, and has been dead now for almost a century.” 
This seemingly brash statement is fully backed by demonstrating that there exist fundamental phenomena of quantum theory that cannot be understood in classical terms. And as the authors state,
“We now have a range of precise statements showing that whatever the ultimate laws of Nature are, they cannot be classical.”
I’ve touched on this topic before, and written about it in my 2015 paper, Primacy of Quantum Logic in the Natural World.  Support can be found for the primacy of quantum logic in the natural world in the cognitive sciences, where recent research studies recognize quantum logic in studies of: the subconscious, decisions involving unknown interconnected variables, memory, and question sequencing.
So if Nature follows quantum, not classical, laws–what are the implications for us in daily life?
The Wigner’s Friend Paradox
One of the many perplexing aspects of quantum physics is something known as the “Wigner’s Friend” idea, in which one person conducts an experiment, and a second person observes the first person. While it may seem clear from contemplating this thought experiment that we may not be able to adopt other peoples’ observations as being equally valid to our own, what’s recently rocked the quantum physics research world is that scientists in Austria and Canada have proved that not only can we not expect our observations to match someone else’s–we can’t even trust our own observations from the past.
This recent Popular Mechanics article demonstrates that news of the published quantum physics experimental results by Proietti and team in 2019 is a story that is not going away anytime soon: It’s impossible to tell if this story exists, according to quantum physics. If anything, this is one of those experiments that will more likely continue to grow in significance, as scientists grasp the full implication of what has been demonstrated.
New Thinking Required in this new Quantum Age
We tend to see what we were looking for–even what we were unconsciously seeking. The so-called “confirmation bias” can be seen to have its roots at the core of quantum physics, where it is better known as the Observer Effect. If we take the ideas from quantum physics seriously as impacting every level of reality, and not purely “the quantum realm,” then we should expect to witness even the most bizarre quantum behaviors in our daily lives. These would include quantum entanglement, which Albert Einstein referred to as “spooky action at a distance;” as well as quantum tunneling; superposition of states; delayed choice (where future decisions influence the past); and quantum teleportation.
Now that we see there may be fundamental underlying qualities to the Cosmos by which elements of quantum physics could be driving the Truth Wars, most of us at this point are saying, “But we don’t want Truth Wars! What can we do to create a stable sense of peace? The key to finding optimal outcomes and ‘end games’ lies in envisioning and focusing our attention and energy on potential possibilities that have more to do with what we are grateful for, rather than what we are anxious, angry, or despairing about. If we insist on focusing our attention on those who disagree with our views of historical facts and scientific findings, or on proving that we can find better facts and findings than those we disagree with, there is high likelihood that Truth Wars will persist. Now that we are entering this new Quantum Age, we’ll thrive best when adopting a Quantum Age mindset, as described in my book, Quantum Jumps:
What’s most amazing to me about the Quantum Age isn’t so much about the quantum computers as how radically our concept of rational thinking is about to change. The seemingly simple transition from bits to qubits takes us from our westernized binary view of True-False logic into a wild and woolly realm of True, True-and-False, Not-True-Not-False, and False. We’re entering a weird, wonderful world of possibilities in which we’ll discover that just because we think something is a certain way doesn’t mean it will stay that way, or that others will experience it that way. Our legal systems will be transformed, and historians, psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists and biologists will recognize alternate histories as being a natural part of existence. Medical professionals will learn to view spontaneous remission as a naturally occurring process, and will encourage people to adopt states of mind that facilitate quantum jumps in healing. Our views of unbiased observers and impartial judges will be forever changed as we appreciate how information can travel anywhere instantaneously, and how everyone and everything is interconnected. The Quantum Age invites us to radically transform our view of who we are and how we work, play, love, and heal in our everyday lives. 
Tired of the Truth Wars?
Let’s Thrive in Uncertain Times
with Gratitude and Kindness
At this time, humanity needs to care more for one another, regardless of seeming divisions, remembering that each of us can shift to a positive perspective. We need to care more for others than we have before. We need to step up to the challenges of living through uncertain times with kindness and love, as we’ve been taught by perennial wisdom teachings across all continents and in all religious. We can rise above most any circumstances, through the power of observation. We can choose Revhumanism in apocalyptic times. And of course one of my favorite ways to get and stay focused on optimal outcomes, is to ask my favorite question:
“How good can it get?”
