NASA Openly Admits Alien Life Exists: Get Ready for Disclosure!


Most people ‘in the know’ realize that NASA is just part of the military industrial complex, but a recent open admission on mainstream news that “there are indications of alien life” is likely the beginning of a bid to get your undivided attention before full-forced disclosure ensues.

Most people already believe what NASA Chief Scientist Ellen Stofan states:

“I think we’re going to have strong indications of life beyond Earth within a decade . . .I think we’re going to have definitive evidence within 20-30 years.”

It isn’t going to take that long if we open our eyes.

Stofan goes on to say:

“We’re on the verge of things that people have wondered about for millennia. Within all of our lifetimes we’re going to understand that there is life on other bodies in the solar system. We’re going to understand the implications of that for life here on Earth.”

What we’re going to understand is that our ‘secret’ government has been hiding this fact for ages. In an effort to transition the US and other countries through its reach to a cabal-run oligarchy, our shadow government has been lying about off-planet corporate slavery ringsalien abductions, benevolent beings who can only do so much until our collective consciousness elevates, and much, much more.

William Cooper, among others, tried to disclose the true purpose of NASA, but he was exterminated. His death, among thousands of others, will not be in vain.

We will learn that aside from extraterrestrial beings visiting our planet and many different ET races tinkering with our DNA over millenia, there are ancient humanoid races that are more than 10 million years old.

We will learn that a recent computer hacking retrieved millions of government and corporate personnel records, some say as part of documentation for Nuremburg-like trials, will begin soon against those who have mind-controlled, enslaved and tortured us. Undeniable photos of UFOs were also unearthed.

We will also learn that chemtrails and GMOs were the LEAST of plans made for us ‘sheeple’ and ‘useless eaters’ by a Luciferian cabal, and that President Harry Truman signed a document with certain ETs that allowed the ‘elite’ to conduct highly technological experiments with intelligence gained from these ETs in exchange for looking the other way when certain humans were abducted for ET experiments.

We will learn that we are not helpless, as we have been programmed to believe. We are, in fact, a rare humanoid race that has an incredible range of emotion and creative power. We will learn that our minds and emotions can either fuel chaos on this planet, or restore it to its rightful place of peace and cooperation, of care for others at least as much as ourselves.

We will learn that our ascension into infinitely peaceful beings is indeed possible, and it has been described in countless books, many of which have been suppressed along with UFO information.

NASA is telling us now that the likelihood of alien life is a ruse. Be sure to remember those who have been executed to try to prove this information to us decades ago, and to use discernment when the truth is finally revealed.

One of the many awesome things about NASA is the amount of free and open-access content it uploads for everybody to enjoy. Keeping in this spirit, NASA and Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) have publically released nearly 3 million images from their database of thermal emission images detailing 99 percent of the planet’s surface.

NASA’s Terra spacecraft has been snapping Earth since 1999 using Japan’s Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER). With these 16 and a bit years of work, it’s captured some incredible sights, including the aftermath of the Pakistani floods, North Korea’s drought, Iceland’s volcanic eruptions, the Venetian canals, Namibia’s sand dunes, California’s bushfires, and even the remnants of a sulfur plant fire in Iraq.

The imaging by ASTER has the ability to capture land surface temperature and reflectance. Along with this, it merges two mildly offset two-dimensional images to create the impression of three dimensions. With this three-pronged attack, it can measure all manner of geological and environmental conditions.

The 2.95 million individual scenes that have been released can be accessed through theLand Processes Distributed Active Archive Center with a smaller (and more easily accessible) selection on the ASTER website. That’s a lot of images, so here’s a short selection of some of the most insightful, interesting and prettiest.

In 2015, hundreds of thousands of North Koreans are believed to have died in the country’s worst drought in 100 years. This image shows the levels of vegetation in red in 2015 (right) compared to 2002 (left).

Heavy teen marijuana use may cut life short by 60


Heavy marijuana use in the late teen years puts men at a higher risk for death by age 60, a new long-term study suggests.

Swedish researchers analyzed the records of more than 45,000 men beginning in 1969 and 1970. The scientists from the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm reported that 4,000 died during the 42-year follow-up period, and men who’d used marijuana heavily at ages 18 and 19 were 40 percent more likely to die by age 60 compared to guys who hadn’t used the drug.

The authors of the new study, published in the American Journal of Psychiatry, said the findings contradict previous research involving the same group of men.

But this study was longer and participants might have reached an age where thelong-term effects of cannabis were taking a toll on health, said addiction expert Scott Krakower, an assistant unit chief of psychiatry at Zucker Hillside Hospital, in New Hyde Park, NY.

“Cannabis users have poorer health in general. You’d expect there to be increased mortality risk,” Krakower told CBS News. He pointed to another long-term study linking early heavy marijuana use with lung cancer, and a second study that associates the drug with increased heart problems.

“Marijuana users generally may have poorer diets and they might be tobacco smokers. There’s an increased linkage between weed and tobacco,” said Krakower.

Dr. Kevin Hill, a member of the American Psychiatric Association’s Council on Addiction Psychiatry, told CBS News, “One of the key messages from a study like this comes down to two words: dose matters.”

The study looked at teenagers who had used marijuana more than 50 times.

Hill, an assistant professor of psychiatry at McLean Hospital and Harvard Medical School, said most people who use marijuana don’t use it at heavy levels. “Nine percent of adults use it at that level and develop an addiction.”

He said the study is limited because it didn’t provide specifics about heavy use and continued use.

Using marijuana earlier in life is linked to poorer psychological health, he said, and that can contribute to more health problems down the road.

“It is well-established that if you begin using at an early age and use a lot then, there are significant negative outcomes particularly in terms of mental health and it wouldn’t be a surprise for that to translate to long-term health problems,” Hill said.

Earlier cannabis use is linked to cognitive problems. Hills said, “One 2012 study showed early, regular use of marijuana – the kind of level they describe in this study — led to an eight point decline in IQ over time.”

He said it’s also associated with worse anxiety and depression, adding, “If you start using marijuana at an early age, you’re more likely to express a psychotic disorder.”

In this day and age of continued debate over marijuana policy issues, Hill said, “This kind of study is incredibly important. We don’t have definitive answers, but it underscores if you are using heavily, you’re probably going to have some negative consequences.”

NASA just announced it’s building an electric propulsion system to take us into deep space


Could it get us to Mars?

 We’ve made it to the Moon, but if we’re going to start exploring the rest of our Universe, we’re going to need better spacecraft. With that in mind, NASA has just awarded a US$67 million contract to develop a new electric propulsion system that could eventually take us much deeper into space.

In essence, electricity is used in place of a chemical propellant to get a spacecraft moving. The tech is slated to be used in the upcoming Asteroid Redirectmissions, which aim to explore the ways we could deflect an asteroid headed to Earth, as well as a manned trip to Mars, scheduled for around 2030.

We’ve already seen cars start to make the switch to electric, and now our spaceships are going the same way.

Solar panels will be used to generate an electric charge (of course, cloud cover isn’t a problem in space), and the on-board propellant will be ionised using the harvested electricity. These positively charged ions, created by trapping electrons in a magnetic field, are then accelerated out of the ship to provide thrust.

Electric propulsion isn’t exactly new – NASA says it’s been working on it for more than 50 years – but as with any technology, it needs to be made cost-effective, safe, and stable before it can be used in a mission. By awarding the new three-year contract to Aerojet Rocketdyne, NASA is hoping to to speed along the process.

“Work performed under the contract could potentially increase spaceflight transportation fuel efficiency by 10 times over current chemical propulsion technology and more than double thrust capability compared to current electric propulsion systems,” said NASA.

When we start talking about long-distance space trips (the journey to Mars could take eight months or so), fuel efficiency becomes very important. Being able to travel longer distances with less fuel is crucial if we’re going to get further out into the great beyond.

Aerojet Rocketdyne will use a reference design developed by NASA to produce a thruster, power processing unit (PPU), low-pressure xenon flow controller, and electrical harness. Xenon is commonly used as a propellant in ion propulsion systems because of the relative ease with which it can be ionised.

“Through this contract, NASA will be developing advanced electric propulsion elements for initial spaceflight applications, which will pave the way for an advanced solar electric propulsion demonstration mission by the end of the decade,” said NASA associate administrator Steve Jurczyk.

“Development of this technology will advance our future in-space transportation capability for a variety of NASA deep space human and robotic exploration missions, as well as private commercial space missions.”

NASA’s Dawn Mission probe also uses solar-electric propulsion, but as The International Business Times reports, the thrusters being developed by Aerojet are expected to be around five times more powerful.

12 medical tests and procedures now being questioned worldwide as unnecessary


Doctors are often criticized for prescribing unneeded tests and procedures that harm more than they help and add to medical costs that could otherwise be avoided. 12 medical tests and procedures now being questioned worldwide as unnecessary and potentially cause — sometimes harmful results to patients. Since a campaign was launched last year, more than 130 tests and procedures have been called into question by 25 medical specialty societies with more than 500,000 member doctors.

“Millions of Americans are increasingly realizing that when it comes to health care, more is not necessarily better,” said Dr. Christine Cassel, president of the ABIM Foundation. “Through these lists of tests and procedures, we hope to encourage conversations between physicians and patients about what care they truly need.”
United States specialty societies representing more than 500,000 physicians developed lists of Five Things Physicians and Patients Should Question in recognition of the importance of physician and patient conversations to improve care and eliminate unnecessary tests and procedures.

See the full list
12 MEDICAL TESTS TO AVOID

1. Avoid Inducing Labor or C-Section Before 39 Weeks
Delivery prior to 39 weeks is associated with increased risk of learning disabilities, respiratory problems and other potential risks. While sometimes induction prior to 39 weeks is medically necessary, the recommendation is clear that simply having a mature fetal lung test, in the absence of appropriate clinical criteria, is not an indication for delivery. (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists; American Academy of Family Physicians)

2. Avoid Routine Annual Pap Tests
In average-risk women, routine annual Pap tests (cervical cytology screenings) offer no advantage. (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists)

3. Avoid CT Scans To Evaluate Minor Head Injuries
Approximately 50 percent of children who visit hospital emergency departments with head injuries are given a CT scan. CT scanning is associated with radiation exposure that may escalate future cancer risk. CT technology exposes patients to approximately 100 times the radiation of a standard chest X-ray which itself increases the risk of cancer. The recommendation calls for clinical observation prior to making a decision about needing a CT. (American Academy of Pediatrics)

4. Avoid Stress Tests Using Echocardiographic Images
The recommendation states that there is very little information on the benefit of using stress echocardiography in asymptomatic individuals for the purposes of cardiovascular risk assessment, as a stand-alone test or in addition to conventional risk factors. (American Society of Echocardiography)

5. Avoid Prescribing Type 2 Diabetes Medication To Achieve Tight Glycemic Control
The recommendation states that there is no evidence that using medicine to tightly control blood sugar in older diabetics is beneficial. In fact, using medications to strictly achieve low blood sugar levels is associated with harms, including higher mortality rates. (American Geriatrics Society)

6. Avoid EEGs (electroencephalography) on Patients With Recurrent Headaches.
Recurrent headache is the most common pain problem, affecting up to 20 percent of people. The recommendation states that EEG has no advantage over clinical evaluation in diagnosing headache, does not improve outcomes, and increases costs. (American Academy of Neurology)

7. Avoid Routinely Treating Acid Reflux
Anti-reflux therapy, which is commonly prescribed in adults, has no demonstrated effect in reducing the symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in infants, and there is emerging evidence that it may in fact be harmful in certain situations. (Society of Hospital Medicine)
ADDITIONAL MEDICAL TESTS TO BE AVOIDED

8. Avoid Lipid Profile Tests
Lipid Profile test checks various parameters of blood, such as cholesterol (good or high density lipoprotein as well as bad or low density lipoprotein) and triglyceride levels. Several scientific papers have proven that people with high so-called “bad” LDL cholesterol live the longest and there is noow a large number of findings that contradict the lipid hypothesis that cholesterol has to be lowered at all.

9. Avoid Mammograms
Mammograms and breast screening have had no impact on breast cancer deaths and have actually been found to increase breast cancer mortality. With toxic radiation, mammogram testing compresses sensitive breast tissue causing pain and possible tissue damage. To make matters worse, the false negative and false positive rates of mammography are a troubling 30% and 89% respectively. Another concern is that many breast cancers occur below the armpits; however, mammography completely misses this auxiliary region, viewing only the breast tissue compressed between two plates of glass. Considering these drawbacks, breast thermography should be given closer consideration. Thermography is a non-invasive and non-toxic technique which can detect abnormalities before the onset of a malignancy, and as early as ten years before being recognized by mammography. This makes it much safer and potentially life-saving health test for women who are unknowingly developing abnormalities, as it can take several years for a cancerous tumor to develop and be detected by a mammogram.

10. Avoid PSA Testing
A PSA blood test looks for prostate-specific antigen, a protein produced by the prostate gland. High levels are supposedly associated with prostate cancer. The problem is that the association isn’t always correct, and when it is, the prostate cancer isn’t necessarily deadly. Nearly 20 percent of men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, which sounds scary, but only about 3 percent of all men die from it. The PSA test usually leads to overdiagnosis — biopsies and treatment in which the side effects are impotence and incontinence. Moreover, there is some evidence which suggests that biopsies and treatment actually aggravate prostate cancer. During a needle biopsy, a tumor may need to be punctured several times to retrieve an amount of tissue that’s adequate enough to be screened. It is believed that this repeated penetration may spread cancer cells into the track formed by the needle, or by spilling cancerous cells directly into the bloodstream or lympathic system.

11. Avoid Routine Colorectal Cancer Screening
Colorectal cancer screening often results in unnecessary removal of benign polyps which are of no threat to patients and the risks of their treatment or removal far exceed any benefit. The evidence is insufficient to assess the benefits and harms of computed tomographic colonography and fecal DNA testing as screening modalities for colorectal cancer.

12. Avoid DEXA
Dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA or DXA) in a technique developed in the 1980s that measures, among many things, bone mineral density. The scans can determine bone strength and signs of osteopenia, a possible precursor to osteoporosis. Limitations abound, though. Measurements vary from scan to scan of the same person, as well as from machine to machine. DEXA doesn’t capture the collagen-to-mineral ratio, which is more predictive of bone strength than just mineral density. And higher bone mineral density doesn’t necessarily mean stronger bones, for someone with more bone mass will have more minerals but could have weaker bones.

4 Important Lessons You Learn Through Difficult Times


4 Important Lessons You Learn Through Difficult TimesWhile difficult times can feel like a deep dark hole that we can’t escape and we often wonder “Why is this happening to me?”, there is a silver lining to tough times. It’s through the difficult times in our life, that we are able to grow. It’s when we are tested that we are able to rise, push through and come out the other side stronger, braver and bet

No one wants to struggle. No one wants to even admit their struggling. We all want to have Photoshopped versions of our own lives that fit perfectly into an Instagram square. But life does not work like that. Every one of us will be faced with a variety of tough times in their life. It is one of the few things we can really count on.

The truth is, there are some important lessons in life that we are only taught through difficult times and they can become the silver lining to the darkness.

1. Who your real friends are.

It’s an unfortunate and often time brutal truth to learn that someone we once thought would be there no matter can’t be counted on. Difficult times have a unique way of trimming off the fat in our lives. If someone does not truly care, they will not make the effort to be there. End of story. The realization that someone you love doesn’t make you a priority can knock you off your feet but it will save you time and energy that would have been spent trying to be there for them in the future. Eventually, you will learn who really matters, you will be grateful for them and you will have cleared out some emotional space for someone who will be there for you, through thick and thin.

2. The depth of your strength.

“It builds character,” was my mom’s favorite response to any complaint I had growing up. As annoying as that line was, it is true. Nothing builds our strength like surviving difficulty. Nothing forces us to leverage what we have, dig deep and come up with every ounce of integrity, patience and strength like a hard time. When you survive something, your internal scoreboard registers it. Imagine as if your internal synapses are pushing an extra win into your win/loss column and the next time you go into battle, your will take an inventory of what your winning record is and bulk up your confidence that you can survive and thrive, no matter what you are facing.

3. What really matters in life. 

Difficult times tend to turn our worlds upside down and anything that is nailed down to the floor will go flying. Sometimes it’s comforting to know what actually does stick, what is still hanging in there after the world goes awry. Because when we’re right side up again, we’ll be able to look a little more closely at those things, take a bit better care of them and love them even more for being unmovable. Most of us spend most of our days worrying about everything but what we should be worrying about. But after a difficult time, we’re less likely to worry as much about the little things and focusing on those unmovable pieces in our life that really matter.

4. How to be grateful. 

Difficult times leave us with a lasting impression. They alter us and change the way we view our lives. We have learned who and what matters in our life and undoubtedly we have a greater appreciation for them. Surviving hardship gives us a broader perspective on what hardship really is. You will look back on the things you use to complain about and be thankful they are your only worries. After we have survived a difficult time, we are given a deep gratitude for our life.

Difficult times will happen. To find the light, we have to go through the darkness and while you’re in the midst of it, try to take a deep breath and remember that the lessons you are learning will shift your view of life. You will learn what matters, who matters, how strong you are and how lucky you are to exist. That’s what difficult times teach us and they are some of the most important lessons we can ever learn.

How Intermittent Fasting Can Slow Degenerative Disease, Protect the Brain and Slim the Body


“Humans live on one-quarter of what they eat; on the other three-quarters lives their doctor.” ~ Egyptian pyramid inscription, 3800 B.C.

Mark Mattson is an expert on food deprivation. A scientist at the National Institute on Aging and a professor of neuroscience at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Mattson has been studying for decades the effect fasting has on mental and physical health, as well as how it influences aging. He’s considered the foremost expert in the field of Alzheimer’s and brain research. And he’s a major advocate for skipping meals.

Mattson himself only eats one meal a day — and says, because of it, he has more energy, mental clarity and focus, along with heightened levels of productivity. “As is similar to what happens when muscles are exercised, the neurons in the brain benefit from being mildly stressed. To achieve the right kind of stress, people might benefit from severely minimizing their food intake,” he told Michael Anft in “Don’t feed your head.” Worldwide, participants involved with various forms of fasting have healed a wide-range of health complaints, from diabetes to obesity and heart disease.

Now a number of physicians have come forward, enthusiastically praising the benefits of the practice. But in the West, where access to food is abundant and even excessive, the thought of going without appears to be a ghastly and unpleasant exercise in unnecessary hardship. Even so, when faced with sky-rocketing cancer rates and an uncomfortable spike in Alzheimer’s disease, our curiosity might just get the better of us — and we may decide to have a look at this seemingly foreign practice, which promises exceptional health and more.

Why fast?

When we explore how our bodies evolved, fasting makes quite a bit of sense on several levels. Obviously, grocery stores and access to food 24/7 isn’t how we developed as humans. A more realistic scenario encompasses food scarcity — especially during seasons of severe weather. Winter and spring are traditionally lean times, where our bodies naturally adapt to lower caloric intake. Part of this adaptation involves the brain, as Mattson explains:

“Our ancestors undoubtedly had to go without food for stretches of time. It hasn’t been that long since humanity lacked regular supplies of food. When you search for food when you’re hungry, the brain is really engaged. The individuals who survive the best—the ones whose brains are more attuned to predators and who can remember where food sources are—are the ones who’ve survived.”

When we fast, messaging chemicals that operate at the cellular level are stimulated, which encourage the growth of brain cells. As these neurons grow, a protective mechanism kicks in and our brain becomes more resistant to damage caused by Parkinson’s, or the protein plaques that aggravate cases of Alzheimer’s.

It has long been known that fasting exerts a positive influence over those who suffer from epileptic seizures. Scientists believe calorie deprivation triggers a process within the brain that helps to calm the overexcited signals which an epileptic brain displays. Overfed normal brains exhibit another kind of unruly excitation, which ultimately leads to impairment in brain function.

Ketones are also produced — a type of acid that is created when the body begins to use fat instead of carbohydrates for energy. In lieu of glucose, ketones provide an alternate, less damaging fuel for the brain. Fasting also increases the number of mitochondria in nerve cells, creating more energy in the process. Fasting improves learning and memory factors as well.

If improved brain function isn’t enough to convince you to give fasting a try, consider this: the practice can significantly lower the risk of cancer and heart disease — and even reverse early-stage diabetes.

How the “Fast Diet” can revolutionize health

Overweight and pre-diabetic, Dr. Michael Mosley decided to forgo the standard regiment of pharmaceuticals and instead seek a solution to his health issues elsewhere.

“I started off by looking at calorie restriction and saw that the research was really great — it’s pretty much the only thing that extends life,” Mosley told the Huffington Post. “The problem is it just is impossible to do — I could not imagine myself never eating the things I love. So I started investigating intermittent fasting as a way to control calories.”

Mosley spent months researching the science behind intermittent fasting — a method of drastically altering caloric intake — and eventually tested the approach on himself. As the experiment progressed over three months, he shed 19 pounds of fat and watched his cholesterol normalize. Moreover, his insulin resistance completely disappeared.

The version of fasting described in Mosley’s bestselling book — “The Fast Diet” — is one of the least uncomfortable forms of the practice. Called the 5:2 plan, it prescribes normal eating patterns for five days a week and then two days of fasting on less than 500 calories per day for women, 600 for men. According to the book, inflammation is curbed and degenerative disease is significantly slowed — if not completely prevented. A happy side-effect of the program is a svelte physique where fat — not muscle — is reduced. Additionally, animal tests have shown food restriction retards aging and increases longevity by an impressive 30-40%.

With all the benefits of fasting, why wouldn’t Westerners embrace the practice with open arms? Besides the usual aversion to even the slightest discomfort, Mark Mattson suspects another culprit behind our resistence, which he addresses in his TEDx Johns Hopkins University talk:

“There are a lot of pressures to have that eating pattern [three meals a day plus snacks]. There’s a lot of money involved. The food industry — are they going to make money from skipping breakfast like I did today? No, they’re going to lose money. If people fast, the food industry loses money. What about the pharmaceutical industries? What if people do intermittent fasting and exercise periodically and they are very healthy, is the pharmaceutical industry going to make any money on healthy people?”

There are several methods of intermittent fasting. Dr. Mercola provides another example with this infographic:

Are Doctors Making You Sicker? Reclaim Your Innate Power to Heal!


Did you know that your mind/body is the world’s most sophisticated quantum computer – capable of amazing rejuvenation and great healing? Every organ, cell and body part functions harmoniously because they are programmed to do so, and if there is a problem, your mind/body knows how heal.

The only time you don’t have the ability to heal is when disempowering programs are running and overriding health and healing. Disempowering programs are strong beliefs that run in the subconscious mind and can unconsciously control us, resulting in mental, emotional and/or physical dysfunction. We can unknowingly “pick up” disempowering programs/beliefs anywhere, but a doctor’s office or hospital is actually one of the easiest places to get a disempowering program installed.

When we seek medical attention, we are often sick or afraid of being sick, and because we are looking for someone in authority to solve our health problems, we give our power away in exchange for healing. The combination of fear and powerlessness causes an altered state of consciousness so when we receive a medical diagnosis, and we accept it as truth, the diagnosis is seamlessly installed as a program in the subconscious mind.

Not knowing that a diagnosis is a program for disease or disability, as the doctor defines the symptoms and prognosis, the patient literally downloads all aspects of the disease or disorder. Let’s say that a patient went to see his doctor with a nagging cough and the doctor diagnosed “ABC disease” – once the patient knows that he “has” this disease, and he believes the prognosis, he may suddenly begin to experience all the symptoms associated with the disease, and if there is an expected progression, the disease may quickly escalate to the next stage.

This may explain why people often get sicker immediately after receiving a diagnosis.

I am certainly not saying that you should never go to a doctor or seek medical attention. This is the not the point or the issue. The advances in modern medicine are nothing less than impressive, but despite the knowledge of the medical community, no one knows how to heal your body better than you. This means that if you give your power away to a medical authority and accept a diagnosis as absolute law, you diminish your self-healing abilities.

So, how do you maintain your power of self-healing while still benefiting from mainstream medicine? Here are some helpful guidelines to support your journey of healing.

Don’t Believe Everything You are Told

If you seek medical assistance, don’t automatically believe everything you are told. Most traditional doctors are trained in a “left brain” manner; this means that they run tests and do assessments and then based on the results, they draw conclusions. This sounds logical and reliable on the surface, but it is all very mechanical. If we were machines, this would be a good approach to fixing our problems, but we are not machines.

There is nothing essentially wrong with a mechanical approach to medicine, but if you rely purely on this way of healing, you miss the innate key to healing, because a purely mechanical approach allows no room for the infinite intelligence of the mind and body. Beyond the basic functioning of our physical bodies, there is an energetic source that runs the whole system of life – this source of energy has the ability to heal the incurable and overcome the impossible. Every cell in your body has consciousness and consciousness can respond to your higher consciousness – which means that you must command healing!

Command Healing

Whatever you say after “I am” is heard and recorded by your subconscious mind, thereby commanding your body to respond accordingly. This means that every time you think or say, “I am sick” you command your body to be sick.

Your body listens to all your commands, so, if you want to heal, you must command healing. Saying that you don’t want to be sick is not a command for health because you are focusing on being sick. In order to align with healing, you must clearly command, “I am healed, or I am healing.” Trillions of cells in your body are waiting and listening for your healing direction.

Don’t Make a Diagnosis Your Identity

Once you identify with a particular physical issue, and you attach your identity to it, suddenly, you are a cancer victim or heart patient. This makes you sicker because your belief in your illness worsens your illness. As your identity gets more and more entangled with the diagnosis, you become part of the problem. If you unknowingly anchor the program in your body, through your beliefs, you might even reprogram your DNA, and pass a health issue down to your off-spring.

Certainly, use a diagnosis as a tool for healing but, whatever you do, don’t make a diagnosis your identity. Above all, it is important to remember that you are not a diagnosis. You are a whole being with an incredible capacity to heal.

Drop the Labels

The labeling of diseases is a very helpful strategy for understanding and prescribing care or cure, but labels can also make it harder to heal. Once we are labeled with such things as ADHD, immune disorders, mental disorders or some disability, we have proof of our problems, and if we use that proof to show the world why we are disabled or stuck in our lives, we further reinforce the problems. Labels can also cause other people to see us differently and maybe even treat us differently.

Healing requires that you see yourself over and above all labels, but, if you are going to label yourself, label yourself “healed.”

Keep Your Power

If you want to heal, you must Keep Your Power, and not give it away to any medical practitioner, and not even to a new age or alternative health practitioner. The more you allow others to control treatment, the less power you have to heal yourself. Don’t be intimidated, or pressured, by doctors or anyone in authority – it’s your body and you get the last say; listen to your body and respect your intuitive wisdom, over and above even the best experts in the field.

Every day, countless people worldwide heal themselves from all kinds of diseases and injuries. One of my best friends healed herself of multiple sclerosis which is said to be incurable. She rejected the diagnosis and the wheel-chair bound prognosis, and she set out to heal herself. She celebrated her full healing by hiking Machu Picchu – I could barely keep up.

Do Research

Do research on the internet and also on the “inner-net.” You can find information about virtually anything on the internet, allowing you to make empowering choices, but don’t ignore your “inner-net” – if you know how to listen, by developing a mindfulness practice, your body will give you an abundance of information, guiding you to health and wellbeing.

Discernment is Key

If you seek medical assistance, be discerning and recognize the limitations of traditional western medicine. Just because a doctor gives you a diagnosis doesn’t mean it is right or you have to accept it. If you don’t believe a diagnosis, the program cannot get installed. Get second and third opinions and, if all agree, and a diagnosis seems correct, use it as a means for receiving the proper treatment, but don’t believe everything about any diagnosis. Just because the prognosis says you will experience certain unwanted symptoms or an exacerbated condition doesn’t mean you will or you have to.

Bring an Advocate

It’s a great idea to bring an advocate with you to all medical appointments – someone who has your best interest at heart, who can think clearly if you become emotional and will empower you to make your own choices, once you have all the information you need.

Do Believe in Your Ability to Heal

People heal and overcome all sorts of incurable and fatal diseases. In fact, your beliefs can and will override any probability or certainty of any expected outcome. When you believe in your ability to heal or be healed, it tells your body to heal and be healed.

Are Doctors Making You Sicker - Reclaim Your Power to Heal - Believe

There is a story of a dying man whose family instructed the doctor to tell the man that he had been cured so that he could live his remaining weeks in peace. Well, the man really believed the doctor’s “made up” prognosis and he lived another ten years – perfectly healthy. You don’t need a doctor to tell you that you are healed – you can simply and powerfully tell yourself. Your beliefs create your reality and instruct your body toward sickness or healing.

Don’t Fight Against the Problem

Traditional western medicine approaches healing by fighting against the problem, but whatever you fight against, you re-enforce. When you fight against anything, you feed energy to what you are trying to overcome. The problem grows by using your energy against you. From this perspective, it becomes easy to see that our traditional attempts at healing often contribute to keeping us sick.

Healing does not take place by focusing on illness or resisting illness. Healing takes place by focusing on health.

In order to heal you must align with health and wellbeing, and do what it takes to be healthy. This means giving your body what it really needs:

  • Proper nutrition
  • Rest and recuperation
  • Supportive movement/exercise
  • Detoxing from chemicals, toxins, etc…
  • Mindfulness practice
  • Listening to your intuition
  • Trusting your body and act accordingly

Last, but not least, there is virtually always an emotional and/or mental component to physical challenges, therefore, it is essential to detox from negative thinking and release emotional trauma, as well as disempowering beliefs.

Over-Stand Healing

We get a diagnosis in order to understand what is going on in our bodies, but understanding is a very limited human perspective. What if you could stand OVER your physical challenges and see them from a divine perspective? When we “look from above,” we tap into the wisdom of the universe and we have access to all answers – including the ones that hold the power to heal.

There is a sacrifice for healing, but it is probably not what you think.

In order to align with health, you must give up disempowerment in exchange for healing, and you must sacrifice fear for faith.

Scientists Discover That Bacteria Have a Collective Memory


Collective motion can be observed in biological systems over a wide range of length scales, from large animals to fish to bacteria, because collective systems always work better for adaptation than those which are singular.

Scientists Discover That Bacteria Have a Collective Memory

Individual bacterial cells have short memories. But groups of bacteria can develop a collective memory that can increase their tolerance to stress. This has been demonstrated experimentally for the first time in a study by Eawag and ETH Zurich scientists published in PNAS.

A central question in the study of biological collective motion is how the traits of individuals give rise to the emergent behavior at population level. This question is relevant to the dynamics of general self-propelled particle systems, biological self-organization, and active fluids. Bacteria provide a tractable system to address this question, because bacteria are simple and their behavior is relatively easy to control.

Bacteria exposed to a moderate concentration of salt survive subsequent exposure to a higher concentration better than if there is no warning event. But in individual cells this effect is short-lived: after just 30 minutes, the survival rate no longer depends on the exposure history. Now two Eawag/ETH Zurich microbiologists, Roland Mathis and Martin Ackermann, have reported a new discovery made under the microscope with Caulobacter crescentus, a bacterium ubiquitous in freshwater and seawater.

When an entire population is observed, rather than individual cells, the bacteria appear to develop a kind of collective memory. In populations exposed to a warning event, survival rates upon a second exposure two hours after the warning are higher than in populations not previously exposed. Using computational modelling, the scientists explained this phenomenon in terms of a combination of two factors.

Firstly, salt stress causes a delay in cell division, leading to synchronization of cell cycles; secondly, survival probability depends on the individual bacterial cell’s position in the cell cycle at the time of the second exposure. As a result of the cell cycle synchronization, the sensitivity of the population changes over time. Previously exposed populations may be more tolerant to future stress events, but they may sometimes even be more sensitive than populations with no previous exposure.

Scientists Discover That Bacteria Have a Collective Memory - Collective Motion Visible in Fish Populations
Collective motion is commonly observed in fish populations.

Martin Ackermann comments: “If we understand this collective effect, it may improve our ability to control bacterial populations.” The findings are relevant, for example, to our understanding of how pathogens can resist antibiotics, or how the performance of bacterial cultures in industrial processes or wastewater treatment plants can be maintained under dynamic conditions. After all, bacteria play a crucial role in almost all bio- and geochemical processes. From a human perspective, depending on the particular process, they are either beneficial — e.g. if they break down pollutants or convert nutrients into energy — or harmful, especially if they cause diseases. For the researchers, says Mathis, another important conclusion can be drawn: “If you want to understand the behaviour and fate of microbial populations, it’s sometimes necessary to analyse every single cell.”

Bacteria also have the collective capacity to generate many neurotransmitters and neuromodulators. For example, certainLactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species produce gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA);Escherichia, Bacillus andSaccharomyces produce norepinephrine (NE).

Future studies of how microbes contribute to the function of their host on all levels will play an important role in advancing understanding of health disorders as well as disorders of social interaction.

Exploring the Path Towards a New Economic Paradigm


One of the most interesting transformational trends in our society is the grass-roots movement towards an economic paradigm that re-examines our understandings of the concepts of need, wealth, money, abundance and thriving.

Many people agree that the current economic system is failing us: The majority are struggling to make ends meet, while corporations and banks are getting richer and richer. We are looking for something more, a system that reflects the importance of the protecting the Earth, helping one another, and living in balance.

But how does this translate to practice and real- life changes?

We increasingly prefer to spend our resources on products that uphold sustainable, organic, and/or conscious models of business. We are tired of greed, corruption, and individuals taking as much as they can without regard for others. We want to share our gifts freely with the world, and hold space for others to do the same.

Exploring the Path Towards a New Economic Paradigm

In order to explore these issues in greater depth, Dr. Kelly of Lucid Planet Radio interviewed the experts to shed light on three different parts of the movement: The path towards an economics of consciousness, the path towards having ‘enough,’ and the path towards a gift economy. The goal of these interviews is to investigate what it means to create a new economic model, and to find out how can we begin to integrate these principles into our own lives.

The Path Towards an Economics of Consciousness

First, Dr. Kelly interviewed theoretical physicist, Dr. Amit Goswami, to discuss his new book, “Quantum Economics: Unlocking the Power of an Economics of Consciousness.” Dr. Goswami offers a way out of the current world of economic inequality, where the middle class is disappearing and poverty grows, that allows us to bring meaning and value back into our lives through the economics of consciousness. Quantum Economics is something that everyone can benefit from; the economist, the business person and the consumer. It is a valuable tool for change, a plan of action for implementing new ideas.

n this interview, we discuss Ali’s amazing journey of finding herself and her balance with money. We talk about how to find what makes you come alive and how to build an income that supports the life you REALLY want – one that is in alignment with who you truly are, how you want to live, and how you want to contribute to humanity and the planet. You can re-frame your financial story into one where you deserve to be compensated for the gifts that you give to the world, and where everyone has enough. We talk about how to open your eyes to the new economy, knowing you can earn what you need, when you need it, on demand. We also discuss how to cope with and offset the pressure of running a successful business while also having family, friends and a fulfilling LIFE.

The Path Towards a Gift Economy

Dr. Kelly recently interviewed Sustainable Human’s Chris Agnos about the path towards a gift economy. Because we may not be able to rely on politicians and elites invested in the status quo to change the economic system, Chris believes that it may be up to each of us to begin taking the steps towards a voluntary, gift-based economic system that may also restore that lost sense of community many of us feel in the modern world.

Chris discusses what it means to live ‘sustainably’ and how we can rewrite our human narrative to reflect a story of living in harmony and valuing life. We discuss the problems with our economy today, including how technological unemployment, extreme inequality, and exponential growth are eroding the foundations of our current economic system. Chris presents the idea of a functioning “gift economy” – and explains how this differs from monetary transactions and bartering. What is stopping us from freely and voluntarily giving our gifts to one another and to the world, and what would it take for each of us to be able to give these gifts without concern for money? We discuss how the gift economy can empower people to rebuild their communities from the ground-up and benefit humanity and the planet’s future.

If living within a system of sustainable abundance is important to you, you get involved in creating the new gift economy by signing up for the Sustainable Human Gift Economy on Hylo.
