3 Steps to Recover from Heartbreak

“It was Valentine’s Day and I just found out that my husband of 10 years had purchased a gift for another woman. All day I was numb. Surreally, I drifted through my day with heaviness in my heart.

I hung onto denial like it was my last friend in the world. I couldn’t bear the thought of my world disintegrating. It just couldn’t be. He wouldn’t do that. There had to be an explanation.

With a strange kind of calm that only complete shock can produce, I asked him about it when he came home from work. His convincing denials and innocent-looking face almost had me believing him. For a flash, I thought I had manufactured this in my head.

If I did not have tangible, physical proof in my hands to the contrary, I would have believed him.

The look of innocence on his face was familiar. I was shocked at how believable he appeared and I wondered how many times in the past I had fallen for his lies. Clearly, I had just not wanted to see the truth.”

That’ s the first vignette of my book Thank You for Leaving Me.

Truth be told, Thank You were not exactly the first words that came to my mind… I had other choice words to say to him. If I were to type them here I would exhaust the symbol keys on my keyboard LOL!

But over time, “Thank You” became the words.


When people hear the title of the book there are two expressions I often see… either they are smiling because they too have made the journey to gratitude and their blossoming lives are evidence of their peace and power or… they have a longing or achy look because they desire their freedom.

Their freedom from pain, from guilt, from blame and their freedom from fear.

The only way I know how to get from point V (victim) to point F (freedom) is to tell the truth… and be willing to hear the truth… even the subtle truths.

1. Pay Close Attention to the First Feeling.

Interestingly, when my husband told me that the marriage was over, my first split second feeling was relief. But right on its tail was fear. I completely ignored my first feeling and attached myself onto a conditioned response of fear and desperation. (ugh!)

The first feeling is always your truth. It is a subtle knowing that can act in complete contradiction to what the situation typically dictates but it is your personal guidance system. Pay close attention to what it is telling you.

The answer always whispers to you. Listen.

2. Take 100% Responsibility.

He made it pretty easy to be the fall guy in why our marriage went south, but in actuality, I was 100% responsible for co-creating the life that I had been living. That was a big frikkin’ horse pill for me to swallow.

When I started to look at all the ways that I had contributed to the demise of our relationship, I would call him up and clean it up. It was the most free-ing thing I had ever done.

Claiming your 100% responsibility does not negate the other persons 100% responsibility. But that is theirs to sort out. You only have control on who you are and how you show up.

I just knew that I wanted freedom too much to not undergo this valuable catharsis.

3. Tell the Truth.

Not just about the crap or that you yelled at the kids or the overwhelm and fear that you experience from time to time… but also about your beauty, your strength, your resilience, your creativity, your resourcefulness.

Tell the truth about THAT!

If you cannot tell the truth about your Magnificence ask yourself if your circle can hold space for your growth and juicy re-invention.

Surround yourself with people who will celebrate you in your pain and in your Magnificence and see them as no different. For they are not. Your pain is just a breadcrumb on a trail to your Magnificence.

And you will know that you are well on your way to Being your Magnificence when you feel the stirring of immense gratitude because you see that nothing was ever done TO you. Everything was done FOR you.

Consciousness Creates Reality: New Thoughts = New Action = New Life

Danielle Fagan | Collective Evolution

A lot of us have watched “The Secret” or have heard about the Law of Attraction from a friend or a book. Many of us have even tried to use it by thinking positively or creating “vision boards.” Too often, we don’t see results, quit and log it away somewhere in the subconscious mind. Unfortunately, many of us don’t realize that we’ve left out a key component. Something vital to our success in using the Law of Attraction (LOA). Want to know what it is? Here’s a hint: it’s actually hidden in the word attraction.

The three components to using the LOA effectively are aligned thoughts, words and action. What does that mean? It means imagining your desires, talking about them and taking a new action to support new change. Why is it so important? Because we are living in the third dimensional reality. We are physical beings on a physical plane. So while we’re here, we need new physical actions to bring about new physical change.

What does your routine look like every day? A lot of people wake up, have the same breakfast, drink their coffee in the same mug, go to the same job, do the same things at work, go home, eat a familiar dish for dinner, watch the same show, then go to sleep at the same time every single day. Then they try to manifest big changes in their lives. You cannot do the same things every day and expect new results! Isn’t that the definition of insanity?

New action is required to attract new results. If you start working out every day, even if it’s for ten minutes, the new action itself would cause you to use new muscles, be consciously aware of what you are doing, form new neural pathways in the brain, and create mental and emotional stimulation. All from working out for ten minutes! Do that every day and you can’t help but feel better, think differently and finally attract new results.

Old, tired routines keep you stuck in the same mental, emotional and physical patterns and of course, stuck attracting the same results every day. We are creatures of habit, yes. We love sameness. Our ego loves being able to predict the same results every day. But adding new spices and flavours into your life in the form of action is incredible and immediately rewarding. It’ll leave you wondering why the heck you didn’t do it sooner.

The Secret Law of Magic that Science Doesn’t Know


I will tell you one of the deepest laws of life. You may not have thought about it at all. You have heard – the whole of science depends on it – that cause and effect is the base. You create the cause and the effect follows. Life is a causal link. You put the seed in the soil and it will sprout. If the cause is there, then the tree will follow. The fire is there: you put your hand in it and it will burn. The cause is there and the effect will follow. You take poison and you will die. You arrange for the cause and then the effect follows.

This is one of the most basic scientific laws, that cause and effect is the innermost link of all processes of life. Religion knows about a second law which is still deeper than this. But the second law which is deeper than this will look absurd if you don’t know it and don’t experiment with it.

Religion says: Produce the effect and the cause follows. This is absolutely absurd in scientific terms. Science says: If the cause is there, the effect follows. Religion says the converse is also true: you create the effect, and see: the cause follows.

There is a situation in which you feel happy. A friend has come, a beloved has called. A situation is the cause – you feel happy. Happiness is the effect. The coming of the beloved is the cause. Religion says: Be happy and the beloved comes. Create the effect and the cause follows.

This is my own experience, that the second law is more basic than the first. I have been doing it and it has been happening. Just be happy: the beloved comes. Just be happy: friends are there. Just be happy: everything follows.

Jesus says the same thing in different words: Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, then all else will follow. But the Kingdom of God is the end, the effect. Seek ye first the end – the end means the effect, the result – and the cause will follow. This is as it should be.

It is not only that you place a seed in the soil and the tree follows; let there be a tree and there are millions of seeds. If the cause is followed by the effect, the effect is again followed by the cause. This is the chain! Then it becomes a circle – start from anywhere, create the cause or create the effect.

I tell you, it is easier to create the effect because the effect depends totally upon you; the cause may not be so dependent on you. If I say I can only be happy when a certain friend is there, then it depends on a certain friend, whether he is there or not. If I say I cannot be happy until I attain this much wealth, then it depends on the whole world and the economic situations and everything. It may not happen, and then I cannot be happy.

The cause is beyond me. The effect is within me. The cause is in the surroundings, in the situations – the cause is without. The effect is me! If I can create the effect, the cause will follow.

Choose happiness – that means you are choosing the effect – and then see what happens. Choose ecstasy and see what happens. Choose to be blissful and see what happens. Your whole life will change immediately and you will see miracles happening around you…because now you have created the effect and causes will have to follow.

This will look magical; you can even call it “The Law of Magic.” The first is the law of science and the second is the law of magic. Religion is magic, and you can be the magician. That’s what I teach you: to be the magician, to know the secret of magic.

Try it! You have been trying the other your whole life – not only this but many other lives also. Now listen to me! Try this magic formula, this mantra I give to you. Create the effect and see what happens; causes immediately surround you, they follow. Don’t wait for the causes; you have waited long enough. Choose happiness and you will be happy.

What is the problem? Why can’t you choose? Why can’t you work on this law? Because your mind, the whole mind, which has been trained by scientific thinking, says that if you are not happy and you try to be happy, that happiness will be artificial. If you are not happy and you try to be happy that will be just acting, that will not be real. This is what scientific thinking says, that that will not be real, you will be just acting.

But you don’t know: life energy has its own ways of working. If you can act totally it will become the real. The only thing is, the actor must not be there. Move totally in it, then there is no difference. If you are acting half-heartedly then it will remain artificial.

If I say to you dance and sing and be blissful, and you try half-heartedly, just to see what happens, but you remain behind…and you go on thinking: This is just artificial. I am trying but this is not coming, this is not spontaneous – then it will remain acting, a waste of time.

If you try, then try wholeheartedly. Don’t remain behind, move into it, become the acting – dissolve the actor into acting and then see what happens. It will become real and then you will feel it is spontaneous. You have not done it; you will know then that it has happened. But unless you are total this cannot happen. Create the effect, be in it completely, see and observe the results.

I can make you kings without kingdoms; you only have to act like kings, and act so totally that before you even a real king will appear as if he is just acting. And when the whole energy has moved into it, it becomes reality! Energy makes anything real. If you wait for kingdoms they never come.

Even for a Napoleon, for an Alexander, who had big kingdoms, they never came. They remained miserable because they didn’t come to realize the second, more basic and primal law of life. Alexander was trying to create a bigger kingdom, to become a bigger king. His whole life was wasted in creating the kingdom, and then there was no time left for him to be king. He died before the kingdom was complete.

This has happened to many. The kingdom can never be complete. The world is infinite; your kingdom is bound to remain partial. With a partial kingdom how can you be a total king? Your kingdom is bound to be limited and with a limited kingdom how can you be the emperor? It is impossible. But you can be the emperor. Just create the effect.

Swami Ram, one of the mystics of this century, went to America. He used to call himself BadshahRam, Emperor Ram. And he was a beggar! Somebody said to him: You are just a beggar, but you go on calling yourself the emperor. So Ram said: Don’t look at my things, look at me. And he was right, because if you look at things then everybody is a beggar…even an emperor. He may be a bigger beggar, that’s all. When Ram said: Look at me! in that moment, Ram was the emperor. If you looked, the emperor was there.

Create the effect, become the emperor, be a magician… and from this very moment, because there is no need to wait. One has to wait if the kingdom has to come first. If the cause has to be created first, then one has to wait and wait and wait and postpone. There is no need to wait to create the effect. You can be the emperor this very moment.

When I say, Be! Just be the emperor and see: the kingdom follows…. I have known it through my experience. I am not talking to you about a theory or a doctrine. Be happy, and in that peak of happiness you will see the whole world is happy with you.

Alien Contact in Puerto Rico?

Nick Redfern | Mysteriousuniverse

alienShortly before the dawning of the 1960s, a historic document, with the title ofSearching for Interstellar Communications, was prepared by Phillip Morrison and Giuseppe Conconi, a pair of physicists at Cornell University, and which was published within the prestigious pages of Nature. Its focus: the potential feasibility of seeking out alien life via high-powered microwaves.

It was a paper that received a great deal of interest, particularly so from a man named Frank Drake, who chose to turn the theories of Morrison and Conconi into reality at the Green Bank National Radio Astronomy Observatory, in West Virginia.

In October 1961, a conference of what became known as the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) was held at Green Bank, and Drake proved to be the stand-out character, when he revealed to the audience what has famously become known as the Drake Equation – a theoretical means to try and determine the number of intelligent, alien cultures that might exist in the known universe.

Radio telescope

When Frank Drake chose to focus his work on a quest for extraterrestrial life, it was a decision that ultimately took him to none other than Puerto Rico and its now-famousArecibo Radio Telescope, of which Drake ultimately rose to the rank of director.

All of which brings us to a new, breaking story just now shared with me by good friend Joshua P. Warren, who is currently on Puerto Rico.

Josh says: “An independent group of researchers in Puerto Rico believe they possibly made contact with ‘beings from elsewhere’ last Friday, August 15, 2014, 37th anniversary of the mysterious ‘WOW! Signal’ captured by SETI.”

The “Arecibo Project,” led by Joshua P. Warren, Director of the Bermuda Triangle Research Base, spent the day transmitting radio messages into outer space from Arecibo, Lajas, and other parts of the island, asking ET to appear around certain GPS coordinates as a live webcam streamed footage of the general location.

A variety of anomalies were captured on camera, including a “saucer-shaped object” that appeared and which then shot straight up into the sky, accompanied by a strange, high-pitched tone.

Warren’s team compared that tone to the famed WOW! Signal, and say it is so similar they think the UFO possibly sent this signal to them as a sign of successful communication.

“We believe the UFO may have sent us the same type of signal that came from space, and was recorded by SETI, 37 years ago,” says Josh. He adds: “This was a complete surprise. Though it was picked up via a webcam microphone, and not a broad dish like SETI had, our analysis thus far has shown it is essentially a demodulated signal from the WOW! transmission turned into audio.”

The message sent into space, an invitation for contact, was recorded by George Noory, host of “Coast to Coast AM” the largest overnight radio program in North America.

Integrating Sacred Wellness Systems Into Modern Life

Nick Polizzi  | TheSacredScience |  Aug 14 2014

Over the past decade of studying different ancient medicine traditions, I’ve been amazed at how many similarities exist between them. ChineseWisdomWhether we’re talking about Amazonian Shamanism, Ayurvedic medicine, or the ancient healing traditions of China, the principles that these schools of knowledge are built on share many commonalities – which is probably why many are beginning to incorporate a combination of these sacred wellness systems into their lives.

As part of a future production, my team and I are currently cataloging a number of these ancient teachings from around the world and would love to share some of our favorites with you. Particularly the passages that seem to span numerous spiritual disciplines.

There are so many brilliant works to choose from, but this week we’re going to look at a few excerpts from the Tao Te Ching. This ancient book, written by Lao Tzu (which translates literally to “Old Master” in Chinese) is among the most revered sacred texts that still exist today. The only work that has been translated more times than the Tao Te Ching is the Bible. Its pages have shaped entire religions like Taoism, Chinese Buddhism, and Confucianism and have inspired some of the greatest artists and poets of our time.

The Tao Te Ching translates to “The Way”.

Tao Te Ching – Lao Tzu – Verse 44 

“Fame or self?  TaodeChing
Which matters more?

Self or wealth?
Which is more precious?

Gain or loss?
Which is more painful?

He who is attached to things will suffer much.

He who saves will suffer heavy loss.

He who knows when to stop,
does not find himself in trouble.

He will stay forever safe.”

Tao Te Ching – Lao Tzu – Verse 8

“The supreme good is like water,

which nourishes all things without trying to.

It flows to low places loathed by all men.

Therefore, it is like the Tao.

Live in accordance with the nature of things.

In dwelling, be close to the land.

In meditation, go deep in the heart.

In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.

In speech, be true.

In ruling be just.

In action, watch the timing

No fight: No blame

One who lives in accordance with nature

does not go against the way of things.

He moves in harmony with the present moment,

always knowing the truth of just what to do.”

Tao Te Ching – Lao Tzu – Verse 11

“We mold clay into a pot,
but it is the emptiness inside
that makes the vessel useful.”

Tao Te Ching – Lao Tzu – Verse 1

“The Tao that can be told
is not the eternal Tao.
The name that can be named
is not the eternal Name.”

I hope you enjoy these bits of wisdom as much as we do!

Ghost Busters and UFO Hunters Tap Top Tools Of The Trade

Andrew Masterson | The Age

Never assume: It is well known, of course, that spacecraft, even ones cunningly cloaked while parked in the front garden, play havoc with the electromagnetic field.

Never assume: It is well known, of course, that spacecraft, even ones cunningly cloaked while parked in the front garden, play havoc with the electromagnetic field.

It’s a familiar enough scenario. You’re sitting in your lounge room, not expecting guests, and the doorbell rings. You have no way of knowing at that moment whether your visitor is, say, a bike-borne evangelist eager to audition you for the tabernacle choir, or, to borrow from the late Douglas Adams, the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal looking for lunch.

The potentially fatal indecision thus engendered, you will be pleased to know, can be easily dismissed through the purchase via Amazon of a nifty device called a UFO-02 Detector, described as a ‘‘magnetometer interfaced with micro controller for detecting magnetic anomalies’’.

Technology is value-neutral. It can be designed by clever people for other clever people to use to do clever things. Or it can be designed by fruit-cakes for use by wing-nuts to track down their own imaginations.

It is well known, of course, that spacecraft, even ones cunningly cloaked while parked in the front garden, play havoc with the electromagnetic field in precisely the way that bicycles don’t. Thus, for a measly $US48.54 ($52) you can henceforth be always forewarned of alien incursion, allowing a timely exit through the back door before the anal probing starts.

Panoptic Paranormal Digital Assistant Camera.Panoptic Paranormal Digital Assistant Camera.

There’s an important point here. Technology is value-neutral. It can be designed by clever people for other clever people to use to do clever things. Or it can be designed by fruit-cakes for use by wing-nuts to track down their own imaginations.

For those with a desire to do so, the market is awash with devices dedicated to assisting the hunt for aliens and angels, ghosts and demons.

Ghost-hunting, in particular, has become a very high-tech business of late, with several specialist online stores eager to provide a range of gizmos to assist in tracking down the incorporeal undead.

The remarkable ‘‘UFO Detector, Yutan, Compact UFO and Alien Search Cell Phone Strap Gadget’’.The remarkable ‘‘UFO Detector, Yutan, Compact UFO and Alien Search Cell Phone Strap Gadget’’.

Typical is the Ghost Hunter Store, in New Jersey. Many items on the shelves – just like UFO-hunting equipment – detect variations in the electromagnetic field, because apparently spirits from the hereafter really stuff up the telly reception. Typical is a handheld grey plastic device called the V-Pod, ‘‘designed by Paranormal Investigators for Paranormal Investigators’’. It runs off a nine-volt battery and features little coloured lights that flash, presumably, just before Emily, the ragged ghost of the cruelly killed Edwardian beggar girl, starts to throttle you.

Not surprisingly, both the alien-hunting and ghost-hunting repertoires feature lots of cameras (all oddly reluctant to either focus or shoot at critical moments). Worth special mention, however, is the Ghost Hunter Store’s exclusive Panoptic Paranormal Digital Assistant Camera, which is an HTC EVO 4G smartphone turned ‘‘into a great tool for Paranormal Investigating’’.

Only a killjoy, surely, would think that the result looks uncannily like a phone stuck inside a black plastic case that has been encrusted with LEDs.

BooBuddy is fitted with a electromagnetic sensor that, once alerted by the presence of a ghost, prompts it to ask questions designed to elicit ‘‘electronic voice phenomena’’, or EVP.BooBuddy is fitted with a electromagnetic sensor that, once alerted by the presence of a ghost, prompts it to ask questions designed to elicit ‘‘electronic voice phenomena’’, or EVP.

The height of ghost-hunting technology, however, the envelope-pushing, boundary-busting, imagination-boggling pluperfection of digital dead-person detection is, without doubt, a device called the BooBuddy, available from a mob called GhostStop for about $US200.

Again, a killjoy might look at a photo of a BooBuddy and pronounce it merely a plush teddy bear – but that just goes to show how wrong you can be! It’s a talking plush teddy bear, fitted with a electromagnetic sensor that, once alerted by the presence of a ghost, prompts it to ask questions designed to elicit ‘‘electronic voice phenomena’’, or EVP.

EVP, in case you were wondering, are odd scratchy sounds that might come from a badly tuned radio, or might be the demon Abaddon asking from within the fires of hell if you know where Linda Blair lives. In the latter case, the BooBuddy functions as a ‘‘trigger object’’ because it seems that many a terrifying spawn of Satan feels much more like talking if there’s a teddy bear around to mediate the conversation.

Alien hunters, of course, have no use for talking toys. Indeed, most pieces of equipment used and recommended by fearless xenomorph investigators are no more than repurposed bits of hobby-tech. Alien-hunting stores carry lots of telescopes, binoculars, night-vision goggles, digital-video gear and ‘‘remote UFO monitoring systems’’, which look suspiciously like home security CCTV rigs.

Robin Williams, Connection, and the Synchronicity of Experience

The pain, the joy, the sadness, the exuberance, the unfamiliar and familiar, are but a host of expressions of one continuum of consciousness and we are connected to it all!

Higher Journeys

It was only days ago that the world learned of the death of a beloved figure in the world of entertainment, Robin Williams.

Despite the personification of artistic genius, Williams apparently struggled with general acceptance, reportedly since childhood, gradually spiraling into a cumulative vortex of addiction and deep depression.

Still, with his broad spectrum of persona; his convincing and infectious character, both on screen and off, millions upon millions of people came to know, love, admire, and marvel at this brilliant creator, leaving an indelible mark of emotion and connection in the hearts of the many who followed his work and his life.

It is this connection that is often intensified when it comes to those individuals well known to the masses.  Particularly those like Robin Williams who had the uncanny ability to virtually morph into any character whether comedic or dramatic, spanning the gamut of human experience, thus creating and/or fulfilling the universal archetypes that are said to be embedded in the collective unconscious of all living souls.  It is in this connection that a primordial link between individuals, whether personally known or not, can tether our collective psyche and unfold as synchronicity when notable events occur.

Keeping this premise in mind, I found the following play out of events worth noting here, which I would deem indicative of this very Jungian-esque idea.

The week prior to Williams’ death I had been on vacation with my husband on Martha’s Vineyard, a popular island off the coast of Cape Cod in Massachusetts.  While there, I had this clear and spontaneous urge of wanting to watch the movie What Dreams May Come starring Cuba Gooding Jr., and Robin Williams.  One of my favorites, I’d seen the movie several times years ago and read the original novel by the late Richard Matheson at least as many times as I’d seen the film.  Why I had this urge to watch it again, and why now, I did not know – and since we were away from home, the likelihood of my finding it on the island was slim.  So I let it go.

A few days later (August 11), I’d been having a late meal with my husband and discussing the recent suicide of a young man several weeks ago whom I only knew of, through another close friend.  His suicide, which was carried out by asphyxiation stunned so many in his wide circle of friends, including my dear friend. The full spectrum of his story and all of the multi-dimensions of this short life touched both my husband and me so intensely that we’d spent hours talking about this young man, feeling as if we knew him.  Our conversation about him intensified on the evening of August 11th.

Earlier in the day, I’d been visiting my friend who knew this young man quite well.  She felt the need to painstakingly describe his character to me: a young, vibrant, talented and extremely funny guy, though morbidly troubled since childhood.  She’d shown me several photos of him clowning around with friends, clearly captivating his audience at every turn.  A seemed dichotomy of character rolled up into one 21 year old individual.

It was this theme that later dominated our dinner discussion on the evening of August 11th – the conflicting personalities that appeared equally present – that of the funny, warm, gentle kid vs. the dark, mischievous, restless soul.  Unfortunately as circumstances would have it, the latter won out!  He was found by a family member in his home, having hung himself.  An unspeakable tragedy to be sure!

Although both my husband and I had been aware of this awful incident for several weeks and had discussed it at some length, something about this day, August 11th, had cast an unusually sympathetic spell on our conversation.  First, it was the visit to my friend’s house, where she had felt intent on sharing an important slice of his life with me via the photos that depicted him as a “happy, go-lucky guy.”  Then we mused over how such an unfathomable act could be possible, given his oft experienced personality that was anything but dark.  I then carried the emotion of his story home with me, feeling the need to discuss it further, trying my best to understand “why?”

Only minutes after wrapping up our meal and our exhaustive analysis of the loss of this young soul, along came the breaking news: ”Robin Williams 63, dead, apparently of suicide by asphyxiation…”  Needless to say, an absolute chill came over me – initially of the unexpected news of this massive tragedy but also of the preternatural details of what we had been speaking of only moments before!

UFO Enthusiasts: Blurry Object Definitely a UFO … Definitely

Carol Christian | Chron

The online community of UFO true believers is bustling with excitement.

Twice in the past week, dedicated UFO watchers have reported spotting an Unidentified Flying Object near the International Space Station, via NASA’s live webcam.

The first such sighting was Aug. 4, when blogger Scott Waring of UFO Sightings Daily saw a “glowing disk” on the live feed.

“Hey everyone, I was watching the live cam and caught this glowing disk in the distance,” Waring wrote in his blog post. “I took a screenshot of the UFO and enlarged it. It has a long line down its middle and a dome on its top, but is rectangle (sic) on its lower bottom.”

Waring must have a good eye. Looking at the enlarged screenshot, it’s hard to see much besides a blurry blob.

On Aug. 7, however, he posted another person’s find from NASA’s HD cam, which Waring described as an “amazing catch by a famous UFO researcher.”

Are You A Lucid Dreamer? If You Are, You’re Likely To Be Ahead Of The Game When You’re Awake, Too

ELISA CRIADO | The Independent

Finding yourself naked in public is a common recurring dream

Finding yourself naked in public is a common recurring dream

New research finds that those who spot the logical flaws of their dream-world are likely to show greater insight when awake

You’re in a lecture hall giving the talk of your life, when you suddenly become aware of the fact that you aren’t wearing any trousers. Embarrassed, you look up to see if anyone has noticed, only to be met by a sea of three-eyed aliens. Do you continue your talk, fearing the repercussions for your career, or do you say to yourself: “Hang on, the only way this could possibly be happening is if this is a dream. Let’s just jump on that passing flying banana and go and have some fun.”

If you’re more likely to do the latter, then you are a lucid dreamer. During your nightly adventures, your brain detects you are in a dream because events would not make sense otherwise.

Researchers at the University of Lincoln have discovered that this ability to pick up on logical flaws in your dream-world translates into a talent for spotting hidden connections and inconsistencies in the real world, leading to greater insight and problem-solving skills.

Dr Patrick Bourke, Senior Lecturer at the Lincoln School of Psychology, says: “It is believed that for dreamers to become lucid while asleep, they must see past the overwhelming reality of their dream state, and recognise that they are dreaming.

“The same cognitive ability was found to be demonstrated while awake by a person’s ability to think in a different way when it comes to solving problems.”

In order to investigate the connection between our sleeping and waking minds, the researchers examined 68 participants between the ages of eighteen and 25, ranging from frequent lucid dreamers to those who had never experienced the awareness of being in a dream state.

Time to Flush the Toilet of Your Mind

The gravity of the situation… we hear a lot about that. In our souls, gravity is not a low-vibe thing: it’s a feeling room. Even if I had the opportunity to hang with the high-vibe folks and talk about how simple the profound is and how profound the simple, I wouldn’t make a life out of it. Day-to-day life is friction. It’s where the rubber meets the road. It’s where our growth comes from.

There is no escaping our feet on the earth life, with sons and daughters and loved ones and strangers who go through things. And it’s not just them… we go through it with them, with our own stuff mixed in. Human beings go through it. Sometimes it’ll send you to your bed to curl up and pull up the covers, and shed a few ‘this stuff’s heavy’ tears.

You probably know the John Mayer song Gravity. After a weekend of fighting off the gravity of the situation, I went to bed today with John Mayer to nourish me: “Oh twice as much ain’t twice as good, and can’t sustain like one half could. It’s wanting more that’s going to send me to my knees.”

I’m on my knees, true that! But you’re not making sense, John… wanting more what?

Earlier today I went out to get some bread at a place I’ve been to a few times. I know the road so I allowed my attention to wander… but it’s all good. I got there. Then I headed back, and oddly, I noticed that the main road got a lot shorter and there were no street signs. And then it dawned on me… I took a wrong turn.

Just when I decided to come awake and look for a clue, a car pulled alongside me with the words ‘Quest Diagnostics’ printed on the side. Aha… maybe it’s time to diagnose my quest! Too much going on inside… it’s diagnosis time. Do it and you’ll come across a familiar road, and that will take you home.

Freedom… freedom to experience the new! That’s what I want more of. I’m living inside of yearning! Repetition has clipped my angel wings; I’ve been through this experience before; street signs be damned… I know my cardinal directions; what’s going on that I don’t know now? Was there something left undone the last time through?

By the time I got home I knew I’d have to clean the page. Soaking up too much information is a problem! Not ‘the’ problem but ‘a’ problem. Information is not experience… in today’s world it can become gluttony that stems from stress and feeds stress.

I don’t need to know more about the evils of the world right now, or what food is bad for me, or the secret plans of anybody, or what entities lurk about and trick your higher self into incarnating again… yes, I actually read that. Then I listened to a sky-granny who knows everything about bliss but forgot how to have fun. My mind is like a toilet… I need to flush it.

You’ve seen those memes, I’m sure, written on a photo or graphic. Here’s one that gave me a ‘huh?’ smile: “Each day do something to make you feel happy, until this becomes a habit.” Do we actually have to be ‘told’ to do something to make ourselves feel happy? Apparently so! People are so stressed they need to be told to dance and laugh and love, and go for some crazy hot love, and try to not beat themselves up all the time.

Steven Dubner: Think Small to Solve Big Problems (Video)

Source:  Big Think

Stephen Dubner talks about the importance of thinking small in order to tackle some of the world’s biggest problems piece by piece. Dubner is the co-author of Think Like a Freak.

Transcript: One argument that we make is that we could all benefit a little bit from thinking more like children, okay. Now you could say well, we’re — first of all everybody’s biased in a lot of ways and we have our set of biases too. It may be that we embrace the idea in this book of thinking like children because we’re kind of, you know, childlike. We have kind of obvious observations sometimes. There’s observations that strike people as obvious. We ask a lot of questions that are not considered, you know, the kind of questions that people ask in good company or smart company. But one of the most powerful pieces of thinking like a child that we argue is thinking small. So I realize that this runs exactly counter to the philosophy of the arena in which I’m appearing which is thinking big, Big Think, but our argument is this. Big problems are by their nature really hard to solve for a variety of reasons. One is they’re large and therefore they include a lot of people and therefore they include a lot of crossed and often mangled and perverse incentives.

But also a big problem — when you think about a big problem like the education reform. You’re dealing with an institution or set of institutions that have gotten to where they’ve gotten to this many, many years of calcification and also accidents of history. What I mean by that is things have gotten the way they’ve gotten because of a lot of things a few people did many, many years ago and traditions were carried on. And now to suddenly change that would mean changing the entire stream of the way that this institution has functioned for many years. Therefore, attacking any big problem is bound to be really hard and the danger is you spend a lot of resources — time, money, manpower, optimism which is perhaps one of our most precious resources attacking a problem that you can’t make any headway on. So I mean, you know, history is littered with brilliant people who have attacked large problems in the past half century, century among them famine, among them poverty and most recently I think education reform, a healthy diet and so on. So these are all really big problems.

So our argument is — you know what? There’s a lot of people out there thinking big. Maybe some of them will be successful. Probably not so many honestly. It’s very, very hard. Our argument is — you know what? Let the people who are gonna try to think big solve big problems — let them go. There’s enough people doing that. Why don’t you just try to think small. Why don’t you try to find one piece of the problem that you can identify and peel it off and try to solve that problem or answer that question. So there are a lot of reasons why it’s better to do that. It’s easier to satisfactorily answer a small question or solve a big problem because you can get the data, you can understand the incentives, it’s just inherently much less complicated. If you can come up with a solution to a small problem there’s a much better chance you’ll actually be able to get it done. A lot of people feel like they come up with the answers to big problems but then you need to get all the political and capital will to do it. And that can be much harder than actually solving the problem.

So if you can peel off a small piece of a problem and then someone else peels off another small piece and you add them up, you’re constantly, you know, working toward a better place. So I’ll give you an example. If you think about, let’s say, education reform. Even that very phrase is kind of weighted or biased toward the supply side, the schools. It’s basically saying that oh, all the kids and the families who are sending their kids to school — they’re all doing exactly the right thing. But education needs to be reformed because plainly the schools and teachers and principals, they’re the bad people. So that’s kind of an assumption already about where the problem should be solved. So you think, you know, people have been talking about the many, many inputs that go into education — class size, technology in the classroom, resources spent, curricula — the way the curricula are taught and so on.

New Nazca Lines Geoglyphs Uncovered By Gales and Sandstorms In Peru

LIZZIE DEARDEN| The Independent

More shapes revealed among known geoglyphs like The Dog (pictured)

More shapes revealed among known geoglyphs like The Dog (pictured)

High winds and sandstorms in Peru have revealed previously undiscovered geoglyphs in the ancient Nazca Lines.

Eduardo Herrán Gómez de la Torre, a pilot and researcher, found the new shapes while flying over the desert last week, El Comercio reported.

He believes one of the geoglyphs depicts a snake 60 metres long and 4 metres wide, near the famous “hummingbird”.

A bird, camelids (possibly llamas) and a zig zag line are among the lines found etched into the ground on hills in the El Ingenio Valley and Pampas de Jumana.

Archaeologists are already trying to confirm whether they match the Paracas culture in the Ica region of Peru, which flourished from 800BC to 100BC and influenced complex textiles and ceramics at Nazca as well as the lines.

Ruben Garcia Sota, head of Ica’s archaeological authority, told El Comercio the latest discovery was “a valuable contribution to our knowledge of ancient Nazca”.

One archaeologist, Orefici Giuseppe Pecci, said the geoglyphs confirmed the close relationship between the ancient artworks and water.

The Nazca Lines cover an area of approximately 280 square miles and are believed to have been scratched into the ground over a thousand years between 500BC and 500AD.

How to Exit the Reincarnation System

Gregg Prescott, M.S.  |  In5D.com

We have all heard about the tunnel of light that our soul follows upon leaving the physical body, but what is the true meaning of the life review?  Why does a life review almost always involve having us continuously looping back into this 3rd dimensional reality and what can we do to stop these cycles of reincarnation?

Commonalities Within The Near Death Experience

Just about every person who has a near death experience will say that they didn’t want to come back to Earth and that the other side of the veil felt like “home”.  So, if everyone feels this content on the other side of the veil, then why do we keep coming back to this hellhole?

As evidenced by thousands of near death experiences, there is a common theme that people experience upon leaving the physical body:

  • The initial “death”
  • The tunnel and the white light
  • The other side of the tunnel
  • Meeting “beings” including angels, guides, friends and family
  • Your life review
  • Getting sent back to earth
  • Lessons learned from the other sideTunnelLight

The tunnel of light is so appealing because it gives us the opportunity to meet with loved ones have predeceased us.  The feeling of love is described as being magnified much more than anything we can humanly experience in this 3rd dimensional reality. In reality, the tunnel of light is a soul harvester that keeps recycling your soul along with the energy of your physical body upon reincarnation.

The Life Review

Part of this process involves a life review, where you see your life in a panoramic, 360 degree view of everything you did in this most recent incarnation.  Then, you see your life from the perspective of everyone you met within your previous incarnation. You may see how you hurt someone’s feeling when seeing your life from their perspective or you might see how much happiness you brought someone else after doing a kind deed for them without expecting anything in return.

Many times, you will be with a Source-like being who appears to be all-loving and will laugh with you at your life review, yet the same being will send you back into this 3rd dimensional reality after a life-review, despite how happy the person is to be on the other side of the veil.

Spirit Guides

We are all assigned spirit guides but who are they and ultimately, what is their main purpose?  Is it possible that they are merely representatives for those who have kept us looped within these perpetual cycles of incarnations?

According to the Wes Penre Papers:

I am not very keen on many of the ‘spirit guides’ who come and get you after you have departed from your body at body death; most of them are Sirian Helpers, such as non-physical Vegans and Grays. Be particularly on your guard if they tell you to follow them ‘into the light’ or ‘to the tunnel’, or go see relatives. If you choose to go with them, you will end up in the Sirian recycling system again with full amnesia, and then being shot down into a new body here on Earth.

I once had a dream where I was about to incarnate into this 3rd dimensional reality. I was placed in an elevator-like room, which represented the descending process to earth.  I remember being in this place many times beforehand but could not remember what I was supposed to do next.  I was on the top floor (the 14th floor which meant the 14th dimension?).  My memory was so badly erased that I couldn’t remember how to descend to Earth.  This is a test we receive on the other side to see if any memories were remembered and if so, then you would have to go back and have them cleared again.

There were other tests to see what I remembered but I can’t recall what they were.

These were the last fragmented memories of the other side before I was born.

It’s possible that there is an elevator-like area designed to erase all of your memories from previous lives and the other side of the veil.

Granted, there are some guides who volunteered to come here to truly guide you out of this cycle of reincarnation and chances are, if you’re reading this right now, your spirit guide is one of them.

Schumann Resonance

SchumannResonanceYou may be thinking, “How is it possible for a Gray to show love by being a spirit guide?”  Please keep in mind that they are using technologies beyond our comprehension in order to wipe out our previous life’s memories.  The Schumann Resonance on Earth has been at 7.83hz for what many people believe to be thousands of years.  Recently, the resonance has been rising as high as 8.15 cycles per second.

You can find the daily Schumann Resonance here.  It is on a Russian website and is translated into English.  Just click the “Frequency” link on the left hand side of the page.

What if the tunnel of light was capable of creating a resonance of 1,000, 10,000 or even 1,000,000 cycles per second? What if the Grays were impervious to theSchumann Resonance or were programmed to appear as spirit guides, upon death of the physical vessel, to convince us to enter the tunnel of light?  At this point in time, you would feel immense love and would innately trust them, based on an artificial program designed to keep you trapped into the recycling system of reincarnation. Ultimately, it’s not love that one would feel; it’s just another artificial system of control to keep us locked in to this current system of negative energy.

Past Life Regression and Soul Groups

Through past life regressions, we know that all of our past lives are either stored within our cellular DNA and/or within our soul, yet we are unable to immediately retrieve these memories.  When under hypnosis, you can remember the most minute details of a past life but once you come out of hypnosis, you have a hard time remembering what you had for dinner yesterday or who the last person was to call you.  Does anyone else find this particularly odd?  How is it possible to remember, in detail while under hypnosis, our past lives and why do we keep incarnating with the same cast of characters?

How To Exit The Reincarnation System

Just by having this knowledge upon death, you can to opt out of the reincarnation process without being persuaded to come back for having to repaying negative karmic debts.  Many of those who have predeceased us have already bought into the system but if they have not yet reincarnated or have made a soul contract, then they may also be saved from having to do this, yet again.  It’s a truly a brilliant strategy by the archons to use the energy of love against us in order to keep us coming back as economic slaves to a system that feeds off of our energies.

Related articleHow To Break Archon Programming

Remember, “As above, so below”.  Just about everything we have been taught is a lie, including why we need to constantly incarnate into a system of economic subservience.

Upon death, we take what we have learned, including our personality. We also vibrate at a certain level, so as you increase your vibration now you will take all of your hard work with you. Remember to connect with your oversoul before entering the tunnel of light or ask your guide to help you to connect to your oversoul.  If you wish, you could tell people about the tunnel of light before they enter it.

If you enter the tunnel of light, do not allow any council to convince you that you need to repay any karmic debt.  Any perceived karmic debt was part of what you decided to experience. This doesn’t mean that you should have no guilt for intentionally harming someone because ultimately, we should love everyone and respect everything.

If you do decide to come back to help this planet, do not agree to come back to this 3rd dimensional reality of systemic control through a “soul contract“.  Come back on your own terms, which includes the remembrances of all previous lives and everything you have learned throughout your incarnations as well as on the other side of the veil.

You could come back into a fifth dimensional version of Earth, but only choose this if you are certain that it is a version that is not under the control of the archonic system. You could also choose to come back as a non physical guide to the old 3rd dimensional system to help others, just as our guides have done.

Ultimately, your true peace will be found once you realize that YOU are SOURCE/CREATOR and you have the ability to create worlds and galaxies that are harmoniously filled with love outside of this system of control.

See you there! <3

In5D Addendum:

I stumbled upon this video today that shows how the truth is sometimes hidden in plain sight on Star Trek Voyager, Coda episode.  Please find the time to watch it. The following is an excerpt of the description of this video:

The ghost of Janeway’s “father” reappears, trying to convince her that it is over and that there is nothing left there for her anymore. But Janeway is not ready to accept it. Her “father” tries to convince her that all her attempts to deny the reality of her situation will only hurt her more for as time wears on, she will realize how potent and destructive loneliness is; seeing the people she loves move on with their lives without her in it, being forever shut out of their existence. But Janeway is still not convinced, insisting that she is just not ready, that she’d rather be there in spirit than not at all because “a captain doesn’t abandon ship.”As the ghost of her “father” keeps pushing her into making the decision to finally leave this world behind, she suddenly sees a vision of looking up at Chakotay and The Doctor, still on the surface of the planet, as if they are still trying to revive her. A second and third vision makes it obvious her experiences in the “afterlife” are not reality. She realizes that the person lying on the ground on that planet is the real Janeway and that all the things she has been experiencing since her alleged death is a hallucination.

The alien being finally reveals his true identity. He states that his species, at the moment of death, comes to help the dying understand what is happening in order to make the crossing-over an occasion of joy. He states that he was being truthful when he said that it was a place of wonder, for it can be whatever she wants it to be. Disguising as her father or generally as someone’s loved ones makes the crossing over a much less fearful occasion.

Janeway doubts that the alien’s real reasons for wanting her in his world have anything to do with everlasting joy and demands to know what he really wants from her.

The alien grabs her, telling her that she must go with him but Janeway realizes that if he could force her to go, he would have done so already. She finally understands that he needs her to voluntarily agree to go with him; something she refuses to do. The alien being becomes visibly upset, returning to his own realm but as a last warning states that there will be another time and that he will be waiting, for eventually she would come into his Matrix and nourish him for a long, long time.
