You Will Now Experience New Chapters with Endings Different Than Imagined

Editor’s note: If you read my daily notes piece tonight, you will see where I get messages in the shower.  One of the messages I received tonight was “your next phase is not going to turn out the way you expect.”  Then I heard I will be guided – no worries – just let it all flow.  When I came across this article, with this title above, just a couple hours later, I knew this was Universal validation.  You see I have been feeling quite stuck in a couple of areas in my life and have had these plans to turn it around.  However, as I am beginning to feel, as painful as it is (it is a mourning process), it is imperative to let go of expectations, even hopes and dreams and plans and just BE.  And yes, I know the pain of letting go of dreams, especially ones we have had for years if not decades.  I know the frustration all to well of making plans to change this or that only to see affirmative results.  Oh god do I know that frustration.  I am experiencing all of this right now and the pain is very deep and very very real.  However, there is a freedom in there with that pain.  Perhaps my dreams aren’t big enough.  Perhaps they are changing as I do.  Perhaps my plans aren’t the only ones or the best ones for me.  I don’t know the answer to this yet, just that I know life keeps saying to BE.  In the Now.  And let it all flow.

I am a reflection of all of your faces.  I am a light that exists through space and time, not to be shackled, not to be corralled, and not to be pegged into any one spot.  As I peer out through the clouds, I ask you to wink back at me as you see in fullness with eyes beyond the optic.  The un-doing of you is what you have been born for.  Allow this un-doing to be completed, as you are unraveled from the very epics of self that have so long been your truth.  You will now experience new chapters with endings different than you ever imagined and ever pondered in the past. 

I am where light bends.  I have the ability to help you see around the next corner of your experience, the next corner of your thought, the next corner of your day.  Look ahead – but not in a straightened fashion.  For the world as you know it, bends to the left of itself.  It is at that point of intersection that history may or may not repeat itself.  It is at that bend in the refraction of life that you all sit.  Perception influences all.  If your perception shifts in accordance with your light encodings, with your heart-felt understanding and love, then your world cannot run astray.  That is how and where you bend in space and time at this appropriate intersection.  Truth only exists when it has a host.  If you do not invite another’s truth into your den, it will have no place to slumber.  Be aware; be very aware of the truths that you allow to spend the night in your heart. 

Listen for the truths that speak to you that do not come from human lips.  Listen as all life embeds itself within your cellular structure.  Listen as light from the stars whispers to you in your sleep with words that you spoke hundreds of light years before.  At this intersection of time and space the light bends. 

The light that shines behind the light, peers out through its reflection, initiating to those who are willing to see, what is yet to come.  The gifts unfold as mummified wrappings, layer by layer.  What is seen is not real.  What is real can only be felt with the senses and not seen as a solid object.  Much moves about in your day that you bump elbows with, but know not that it exists.  Much moves about in your heavens, but you see it not with the bold blue backdrop. 

I am the essence that is known as the Great Attractor.  I call back to myself, all that has been created.  As Creation is pulled back into itself, it changes form over and over again until ultimately it is pure energy.  This is the same ability that you hold inherently.  As you call back to you all light and life, it changes form in accordance with your perceptions.  Formlessness only requires form when it is needed.  If your world feels as if is collapsing upon it self, know that the form is calling itself back home into formlessness.  Do not hold on to what wishes to become light in your thinking, in your world, and in your expectations. [italics are mine to emphasize the importance of these words – very similar to what i wrote above]. I leave you with these thoughts.

The Greatest Discovery Never Seen: Crypto-Water and the Secrets of Harmony

THE GREATEST DISCOVERY NEVER SEEN: Part 3 … Crypto-Water & the Secrets of Harmony
by GW Hardin
Since the dawn of time, those who controlled water controlled civilizations. Whether early cavemen viciously guarding watering holes or desert people concealing locations of oases, water determines whether humans live or die. Even to this day in modern-day Colorado, where I live, the adage goes, “Whiskey is for drinkin’; water is for fightin’.”
However, only the most advanced civilizations have known that deeply encrypted in water lie secrets that govern the fabric of the universe. Is it not time for all of humanity to know these secrets that once served the great Egyptian dynasties?
 As simple as water is, it actually is among the most difficult of substances to understand. Scientists today still don’t understand how it does some of the things it does. In order to tackle the encrypted wonders of this miraculous molecule, we will venture into its labyrinth of mystery in four stages:
1. Harmony and Water — Secret to the Anti-Matrix … Death to the Borg
2. Microtubule Rabbit Holes — The Hidden Patterns to the Fabric of the Universe
3. The Divine Cleansing — Harmonetic®Water, H3O2 and Other Structured Crypto-Water (stop the poisoning of our aquifers)
4. Conclusion — Stepping into Eden
In Parts 1& 2 we looked at the importance of the latest discoveries in physics (http://www.ascensionwithearth.com/2016/07/the-greatest-discovery-never-seen-part.html) that have vaulted the importance of recognizing consciousness as the essential component not only of physics but also of science in general. We also examined the critical danger of giving up our humanity by becoming technological cyborgs. Along with that we entered the debate of AI (artificial intelligence) conquering or eliminating humans (http://www.ascensionwithearth.com/2016/07/the-greatest-discovery-never-seen-part_25.html). Now it’s time to clearly galvanize humanity into remembering our humanity and also awakening us to the miracle that we clearly were created to be.
Harmony and Water — Secret to the Anti-Matrix … Death to the Borg
In Part 2, we saw that MIT’s James Gates, Jr., and Tesla Motor’s Elon Musk have found evidence that we actually may be living in a Grand Simulation, the “Matrix.” Rather than asking how we get out of this Matrix, these enquiring minds instead are asking who created this Grand Simulation? And why? When the Titanic is going down, one does not ask who left that iceberg in the ocean. One asks how the hell do we find a lifeboat? Oddly enough, the lifeboat in our case may actually be the ocean. Or at least the oceans of water that surround us.
A growing number of scientists are discovering that water can no longer be taken for granted. We drink it, we wash with it, and we poop into it to such a degree that we really have never taken the time to find out why our lives simply can’t exist without water. Bluntly put, we take water for granted. And we shouldn’t. We idly chat over chips and margaritas citing factoids that tell us that our bodies are about 60-75% water by weight. Kinda like our planet itself. But what is being ignored is that water molecules are teeny tiny compared to other molecules. And if you actually count the number of molecules in our bodies, 99% of molecules in our bodies are water! Yep. We are literally walking bags of water governed by consciousness. We are the Water People.
To mathematicians like me, water is a geometric wonder. The hydrogen atoms in water are unique with their ability to change their atomic shape if scalars or other energy sources are added. When hydrogen does this the angle of hydrogen atoms to the oxygen atoms changes. We see this when water is steam or ice. When these hydrogen atoms go into a high spin state, veritable miracles seem to take place. Here’s how we’ve been taught to look at water molecules as H2O:
Pretty simple. But boring. Water doesn’t really exist like this. It does amazing things when it clusters together. Tremendous variations in patterns move around doing unheard of magic as it constantly morphs from one state to another, while we go about our day thinking we live in a “real” world that is most likely a Grand Simulation.
Here are only a few other paths that water takes in a given instant:
But water is capable of so much more. Here are modest mathematical models it is capable of:
Even more strange is that water does not limit itself to clustering of molecular patterns. It also has the capacity to take up scalar patterns that can turn a calm sea into a giant tidal wave that crushes whole towns. It is the only substance that can take on all the geometric shapes:

Those of you in the know can spot this as cymatics, or the interaction of sound and water. This capability is at the heart of how we can can co-create the Anti-Matrix … removing ourselves from the Grand Simulation. How is that possible? Let’s take a look.
What James Gates, Jr., discovered is that the Grand Simulation looks like computer code, actual formulae that take on structure that we end up calling “reality.” However, what Roger Penrose has discovered is that AI cannot simulate consciousness. In my last article, I label AI as “No-Consciousness.” Penrose seems to back this up with his statement that the “quality of understanding and feeling, possessed by human beings, is not something that can be simulated computationally.”
Writing about Penrose, David Freeman of Discover magazine (June 1994) says:
Mathematicians have proved that it’s impossible to devise a computer program — a general set of rules — that can predict whether tiles of any given shape can completely cover a plane. If the question of whether certain tiles can cover a floor is noncomputable, then might not the task of evaluating an object’s beauty as well as any other chore of consciousness be the same? Penrose was sure they were. But if consciousness is noncomputable, then whatever process in the brain that gives rise to consciousness must also be noncomputable.
In other words, even though it may walk like a duck and quack like a duck, AI is no duck.
The bottom line here is that consciousness reigns supreme — that is, if we are aware enough to realize that. And what I have discovered is a mathematical construct that will allow us to move into that awareness via HARMONY.
Emoto and others have shown us what happens to water when it is subjected to negative intent, negative thoughts, even negative words. Bruce Lipton has similarly shown that DNA is subject to its environment (epigenetics). And what is the single most abundant molecule surrounding DNA? Water. Keeping in mind that 99 percent of the molecules in our body are water, you don’t have to scratch your head too long before you realize that water is the primary factor in determining the quality of our lives.
In three different pilot studies we sponsored, one involving water, the other two involving plasma fields and scalar patterns (created by Xynchro™ devices) aimed at the water in our bodies, we discovered high levels of significance where lives improved when in the environment of harmony-based fields. Improvements were seen in the mental, emotional, and physical aspects of the tested participants. Harmony-based patterns assist us in altering reality for the better.
The James Gates, Jr., adinkra patterns are AI-based (binary code … http://www.onbeing.org/program/uncovering-codes-reality/feature/symbols-power-adinkras-and-nature-reality/1460), or what I call the AI Matrix. The simulation constructs Elon Musk is talking about are AI-based. The implication is that these AI-based systems are controlling our lives. More accurately put, we are allowing them to control our lives. What we are seeing in our pilot studies is that this control abates when we become more aware. And what we are seeing in two year’s worth of experimenting is that this increased awareness pulls back the cloud of distractions, opening us once again to our greatness through self-identification, self-empowerment, self-realization, and recognition of the Self in Oneness.
From the information given in the angelic appearances to Joseph Crane and Dr. Joseph Poleo, I ultimately discovered a mathematical pattern that Pythagoras himself used, called the Pythagorean skein, or base-9 mathematics. From these numbers I saw an inherent Fibonacci numbering system. At the time I did not know that the Fibonacci sequences worked NOT only in base-10 (our everyday mathematics), they also worked in numbering systems from 2 to 9. Out of that I discovered in base-9 that there are four sequences that govern all of life. In anything living, you will see these sequences:
1-2-3-5-8-4-3-7-1-8-9-8-8-7-6-4-1-5-6-2-8-1-9-1
1-3-4-7-2-9-2-2-4-6-1-7-8-6-5-2-7-9-7-7-5-3-8-2
1-4-5-9-5-5-1-6-7-4-2-6-8-5-4-9-4-4-8-3-2-5-7-3
3-6-9-6-6-3-9-3
These four strings of sequences weave in wondrous combinations to create what the angels call the “Fabric of the Universe.” They just so happen to also make up the entire Solfeggio Matrix (http://www.soundsofwonder.com/solfeggio.htm#matrix), when turned into a helix like DNA. Once more, all these numbers in the Solfeggio Matrix are harmony-based. Adding any two or more solfeggio numbers creates another solfeggio number that is a Pythagorean harmonic of the original. The entire Solfeggio Matrix is a complete torus of never-ending harmony.
Where humans get sidetracked is when anything that is not in harmony infects us. Any harmonic system is death to the AI Matrix. Whenever two systems interact, one of them being harmonious, the disharmonious will always end up entraining to the harmonious. That’s because the Fabric of Life was originally created out of complete harmony.
Whenever you subject water to solfeggio patterns, that water becomes structured. And when water is harmonically structured it becomes a ringing bell of sacred sound that calls us back to our original sacred state of being. Perfect. Whole. Complete. As we were originally. As we are now, if we so choose.
Microtubule Rabbit Holes — The Hidden Patterns to the Fabric of the Universe
When Hameroff and Penrose discovered that highly structured water was on the inside of all microtubules (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpUVot-4GPM&list=FLVW_wkfs_IiiM2PU4sqXTnA&index=16), they also discovered that the tubulin, which make up the microtubules, interact in a Fibonacci sequence of 3-5-8-13 (there are 13 molecules that make up each ring of the microtubule). What they did not realize is that this sequence is not in base-10 as they wrote. It’s actually in base-9, which is toroidal in nature. That means the microtubule sequence is actually 3-5-8-4-3-7-1 etc. And if you look at the four sequences I gave above, this sequence is number 1 on the list. Microtubules are round with the tubulin arranged in a kind of helix pattern. So when they interact, that interaction occurs in a  constant swirling torus-like pattern around the tube.
Now keep in mind that microtubules are directly connected to consciousness. So much so that Hameroff originally thought (incorrectly) that they were the source of consciousness. What is also essential to keep in mind is that all microtubules are filled with highly structured water. And at the center of each microtubule there appears to be a black-hole-like feature that some call dark matter, while others call it a miniature black hole. The truth is that scientists don’t fully understand what this feature is. However, it doesn’t take much imagination to figure out that it is quantum related, not unlike a similar phenomenon created by DNA, called biophotons — that appear out of nowhere (or what scientists call the quantum vacuum, while others call it zero point or the quantum plenum).
What Hameroff also discovered is that these microtubules are covered in miniature hairlike antennae made of protein that clearly send and receive frequencies. Most of the frequencies are in the megahertz range. However, Hameroff discovered that somehow they are also able to receive/send harmonics in the Solfeggio Matrix range. Hameroff also discovered that the frequencies sent out by microtubules are “anharmonic,” or without harmonics. Why would a completely harmonic-based system send out only anharmonic frequencies? One guess is this is how the AI Matrix or AI Simulation is supported. Think what would happen if the microtubules were allowed to transmit and receive harmonic-based frequencies? We think this is what is happening when we create certain versions of solfeggio-tone harmonics with scalars and introduce them to the mind/body. In other words, we hypothesize that this is the Anti-Matrix.
The Divine Cleansing — Harmonetic®Water, H3O2 and Other Structured Crypto-Water
It appears, in the work done by Dr. Gerald Pollack, professor of bioengineering at the University of Washington, that water has buried within it a secret that can be easily unlocked. I call this “Crypto-Water.” Pollack calls this version of water H3O2, or EZ water, which stands for “Elimination Zone” water. In his book, The Fourth Phase of Water: Beyond Solid, Liquid, Vapor (Ebner & Sons, 2013), Pollack shows how this particular form of structured water (H3O2) naturally excludes all pollutants from the water (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-T7tCMUDXU). Think what this means to our own human bodies. Remember, we are essentially walking bags of water.
The work done by physicist Dan Nelson, PhD, with his Wayback Water (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hNW7qxIMzg&list=WL&index=1), adds even more ammunition to the capabilities of Crypto-Water to bring an end to the disharmony that plagues us. Nelson goes into great depth how and why structured water has exceptional influence in our bodies.
Water has secretly built within it the capacity to eliminate the toxins that it so readily absorbs, if we know how to take advantage of this secret. What we’ve discovered is that water can be structured simply by playing certain scalar solfeggio strings of sound. So not only can pollutants be eliminated, the water will also harmonize. This can be a boon to our cells which constantly have to eliminate wastes and toxins. We call this solfeggio-based form of structured water Harmonetic®Water.
Harmony-based structured water also is a boon to our entire system, especially when the structured water around DNA and inside microtubules affect more than waste and toxins but also eliminate the fog of negative-based reality. It is what I like to call the “Divine Cleansing.”
Conclusion — Stepping into Eden
The ultimate question lingers: What happens when we emerge from the Matrix? Do we trigger what Gary Renard describes in his fascinating book, The Disappearance of the Universe (Hay House, 2004)? Do we bring an end to the Grand Simulation and the illusion of duality? Does the Matrix come crashing down in the same fashion as the movie series of the same name? Perhaps.
However, if one pays attention to the mathematics of the Solfeggio Matrix, the harmony never ends. In truth, it weaves into other dimensions using fractals as if they were gateways. There is evidence from the angelic realm that these solfeggio frequencies can be arranged in certain ways to create these gateways in the third dimension not unlike the gateways in the movie Stargate. And like that same movie, we have the ability to move across time-space to other worlds.
What this implies is that our planet is one of many that will need these harmonizing effects to extricate themselves from the Grand Simulation. But first, we must open our eyes to the grandness of ourselves, by moving into self-awareness and Oneness.
Yes, we are indeed a paradox that is both. Like the whales and the dolphins, we have the capacity to move our brains from individual-based thinking and operating to group-mind. When in group-mind we become unlimited in our abilities as we no longer operate solely in service to ourselves but in service to others in the group. It is as if we have the ability to walk in two worlds at the same time. Which makes us a metaphor of being living gateways ourselves. In the upcoming Part 4, I will give technical detail as to how we clean out the “pollution” in our lives by showing how we can surround ourselves with harmony, whether that’s with Harmonetic®Water or harmonious scalar environments.
In an article written by Dr. Michael Salla, he provides an interesting sidelight to what “harmony” can mean (http://exopolitics.org/creating-the-optimal-time-line-for-full-ufo-disclosure-ascension/). He says, “Seth provides clarity on how one can achieve a service-to-other polarity, and feel connected to the needs of others. It does not come from sacrificing one’s own joy or needs to make others happy, but by following one’s own life path:
When you follow your own nature, you automatically and naturally feel for the needs of others … When you are joyful and free, and when you are having fun, you automatically feel … your oneness with all other creatures of the universe, and you know your place in All That Is. 
(Susan M. Watkins, Conversations with Seth, p. 179)
The angelic realm tells us that humanity has awakened enough that Eden stands before us once again. They tell us the gate is open. All we have to do is walk in. So what is it going to take for us to collectively open our eyes and take this first step?
The answer is simple, as it has always been. We simply choose to. We collectively hold one another’s hands. The first to open their eyes gets to take the next step. And in so doing, we drag the rest with us, never letting go of one another. We are collective Oneness. We are One.

Cannabinoids: The New Vitamin ‘C’?

Editor’s note: I am going to be juicing with the leaves and will report any positive differences I experience.  I cannot smoke it for a variety of reasons and desire to have the health benefits without the psychoactive effects.  Juicing w/the leaves does just that.  

Dr. Matthew Buckley, PSc.D., Contributor

Throughout the nation, one of the hottest social and political discussions right now is whether or not we should legalize marijuana. I believe that when examining what is known about the utility and the importance of the marijuana plant, specifically as it relates to health, it becomes clear what a grave mistake it is to deprive ourselves of this truly nutrient rich plant. I believe that its cannabinoid compounds meet the definition of “vitamins”, not just any vitamin, but a vitamin that may be necessary for controlling our bodies ability to eliminate cancerous cells, in addition to supporting numerous bodily functions.(1)

It’s worth pointing out that this post is not about marijuana or hemp’s numerous other uses as a food, fuel, or fiber.

A vitamin is defined as “any of a group of organic compounds that are essential for normal growth and nutrition and are required in small quantities in the diet because they cannot be synthesized by the body.”

What is a “non-essential” vitamin?

A non-essential vitamin is an organic compound that is necessary for normal growth and function, that can be produced within our bodies.

What is a cannabinoid?

Cannibinoids are chemical compounds which act on cell receptors (CB 1) and (CB 2) within the body. In a normal, healthy state, the human body can produce two chemicals, possibly more, which act on these receptors: anadamide and 2-arachidonylglycerol (2-AG).These are called “endogenous cannabinoids”. Outside of the body, the hemp or marijuana plant are known to produce a number of forms of cannabinoids (phytocannabinoids), such as THC, or CBD, which also act on these receptors.(2) These are called “exogenous cannabinoids”, or phytocannabinoids.

What do cannabinoids do?

Cannabinoids have been found to profoundly influence the immune system, with CB1 exerting its activity primarily through the brain and central nervous system, and CB2 exerting its influence over the gut, lymphatic system, spleen, pancreas, endocrine system, bone and peripheral nervous system. (3)

Due to the broad range of tissues which demonstrate cannabinoid receptors, cannabinoids are reportedto have near panacea type benefits, both anecdotally as well as from orthodox science. Perhaps most notably, cannabinoids demonstrate broad range anti-cancer benefits at even low doses, however some experts indicate that high doses are needed in the oral form (not smoked) for anti-cancer benefits.(4)(5)(6) Also notable, are the reports of cannabinoids being effective in the treatment or management of autoimmune conditions. Given the connection between disruptions in the gut lining and virtually every autoimmune condition known to man(7), one would expect to find some sort of regulatory action of cannabinoids in maintaining gut lining integrity, and research is clearly showing that to be the case.(8)

Currently, the governmental scientific research repository, pubmed ,returns nearly 12,000 research papers on the search term “cannabinoids”. Clearly, the scientific community recognizes something very important here. It’s worth noting that the US government owns a patent on cannabinoids due to their proven anti-oxidant and neuro-protective effects, which should seem odd since one of the prime justifications for not allowing medical marijuana to be legal in every state is that our governmental overlords claim that marijuana lacks medicinal value.(9)

Should cannabinoids be considered vitamins?

I believe that it’s simply a matter of time before cannabinoids, such as those derived from cannabis and the hemp plant, will be recognized as “n
on-essential” vitamins.

thc_anandamide

Biotin is a non-essential vitamin. Just as the microbes in our bodies can produce vitamin B7, biotin, it’s possible for deficiencies to occur due to various disruptions in the balance of intestinal microbes. (10) Therefore, there are times when it becomes necessary to supplement with biotin if we are to prevent the deleterious effects of a lack of this vitamin.

Likewise, it appears that in times of stress that our bodies require an increasing amount of cannabinoids in order to regulate the “endocannabinoid” system, which either directly or indirectly influences every cell in the body.(11) It stands to reason that if the body can not produce sufficient levels of anadamide and 2-arachidonylglycerol (2-AG) to exert their influence within the endocannabinoid system, that an outside source would be required otherwise normal cell growth and function could not be achieved. The best source for these exogenous sources of cannabinoids appears to be compounds found within marijuana and hemp, although other sources have been identified (12).

Clearly, if it is demonstrated that cannabinoids are necessary for the “normal growth and function” of the the body, which the research appears to be showing, then by definition, cannabinoids should be classified as “non-essential” vitamins.

Taking vitamins shouldn’t be a crime.

While non-THC containing hemp (CBD) oil, which only influences CB2 receptors, is legally available over the counter in every state of the US, THC and its CB1 influencing cannabis oil is still under heavy regulation, and unavailable (outside of the black market), throughout most of the US. The significance of this is that it appears that stimulation of CB1 may be most critical in order to exert the anti-cancer benefits found within the endocannibinoid system, and it also appears that it is primarily the CB1 action that appears to be regulating the integrity of the gut lining, which is important when addressing ANY chronic illness, especially autoimmune disorders. With 1:2 Americans predicted to be diagnosed with cancer, and 1:3 challenged by chronic illness at some point in their life, this should be of concern to every American. In time, perhaps, cancer may be revealed to be a “vitamin deficiency”, if it’s demonstrated that adequate amounts of cannabinoids do indeed regulate control over our bodies ability to properly eliminate cancerous cellsMore research is needed in this area, however.

If you’re interested in helping to end the draconian drug laws related to the prohibition of marijuana, the “National Organization for Marijuana Reform Laws” is a good organization to support. Clearly drugs laws do not prevent drug usage, their availability, or their potency. Many people within law enforcement arenow speaking out about this. The current drug laws seem even more absurd when you consider that such laws appear to be creating vitamin deficiencies that may be fueling much of our current chronic disease epidemic.

Could A Nap A Day Save Your Life?

Editor’s note:  We take daily naps/rest periods in this house.  When missed, mama bear comes out and no one wants that…

AUG 17, 2016 by DR. JANE GILBERT

Could a Nap A Day Save Your Life?

Napping is not just for dogs and children. Some of the world’s most influential thinkers and leaders have catnapped every day. Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill, Salvador Dali, John F Kennedy and Calvin Coolidge all found that a short snooze left them refreshed, recharged and ready to work. Science confirms that napping can help beat the post lunch slump and boost cognitive performance, but now there is evidence that a siesta could also save your life.

You probably don’t need me to tell you that a nap can make you feel better; more alert, sharper and less grumpy. Research has shown that naps can improve our problem solving abilities and our memories, naps can also enhance perceptive skills and speed up reaction times. But the benefits go way beyond that. Short daytime sleeps have been shown to be good for the heart, decrease blood pressure, help our bodies cope with stress and even help us battle the bulge.

Naps and the heart

Regular naps have been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease.Those who have a siesta at least three times a week were shown in research to be more than a third less likely to die of cardiovascular disease.

A leading scientist from the extensive study, Dimitrios Trichopoulos of the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston said

“Taking a nap could turn out to be an important weapon in the fight against coronary mortality.”

The effect proved to be particularly strong for working men. Those who regularly took a little time out from their working day to have a short snooze had a sixty-four percent lower risk of death from heart disease. However, even non-workers showed a benefit. Those occasionally napping had a twelve percent lower coronary mortality rate and those who systematically napped had a thirty-seven percent reduction in death from cardiovascular events.

Naps and stress

We’ve all been there, after a few late nights it can be difficult to deal with the stresses and strains of the working day. Little problems suddenly seem insurmountable and it’s not just our minds that struggle when we’re sleep deprived, our bodies suffer too.

When we’re under psychological pressure the body releases chemicals designed to help us fight or flee. When we’re tired even more of these stress hormones flood through the body. That was great when we were cavemen fighting sabre-toothed tigers, but in the modern world when stress is sustained and psychological the results are potentially deadly. The hormones can ramp up blood pressure and blood sugar levels predisposing to diabetes, cardiovascular disease and obesity.

The good news is that research shows that naps can mitigate the effects of too little sleep, decrease the release of these stress chemicals and help protect our bodies from the negative effects of stress.

So if napping is so good, why are many of us so embarrassed or ashamed of it? I mean let’s face it, whether it’s called a siesta, bhat gum or rice sleep, an afternoon snooze is ingrained into many cultures. But in the US, the UK and many other western societies, sleeping in the daytime can be seen as laziness, a sign of getting old or lacking drive. With 650,000 Americans dying of heart disease every year, maybe it’s time to change the way think and the way we work.

How to have the perfect power nap

Keep it consistent. Try to nap at the same time every day. This helps your body adjust its normal circadian rhythms and ensures you get maximum benefit. Schedule it in your diary and make it a regular part of your daily routine.

Sleep or stimulants? Do you slug back a strong cup of coffee to beat that post-lunch slump? If you do, you may not be taking the best approach. A study compared the effectiveness of caffeine, day time naps and getting more night-time sleep as ways of overcoming the afternoon dip and the nap won hands down.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to bin the Java. Both napping aficionados and scientific researchers at Loughborough University recommend having a cup of coffee immediately before your nap. When you wake twenty minutes later, the caffeine will have kicked in so that you get a double boost.

It’s all about the adenosine. Adenosine is the chemical responsible for our feelings of tiredness, it slows down nerve cell activity making us sluggish and slow. Adenosine levels naturally decrease when we snooze and caffeine blocks our body’s response to the chemical- so together you have the ultimate power nap.

Afternoon delight. Most of us start to flag between one and four pm. It’s the result of our in-built body clock and the build-up of adenosine. Stop the slump by scheduling a short snooze after lunch.

Short is sweet. Do you wake up from a nap groggy, confused and fit for nothing but rolling over and going back to sleep? If you do, you may be sleeping for too long. Avoid this “sleep inertia” by setting an alarm and aiming for no more than twenty to thirty minutes max.

Turn off the lights. Our bodies are programmed to respond to darkness and light. Flicking the switch or using an eye-mask will help you doze off and plenty of bright light will reenergize you when you’re awake.

Cover up. When we sleep our metabolism slows down and our body temperature drops, a light blanket or an extra sweater will help you stay comfortable.

While you’re waiting for the culture at work to catch up with medical research, it’s still possible to enjoy a siesta and avoid getting fired. Try snoozing in the car, under your desk or even in a stationery cupboard during your lunch hour.

Napping could improve your work performance, your health and your wellbeing. So what are you waiting for? Remember, It’s not laziness, it’s a way of rebooting your system so that it is better able to cope with challenges. So if you find your eyelids drooping when the clock ticks past midday, make like Coolidge and Kennedy and catch some ZZZZs.

Everything Doesn’t Happen For A Reason

Editor’s note:  This article ties in with my piece, On Grief – Part 2.  http://www.loveinactionnow.com/?p=124

I emerge from this conversation dumbfounded. I’ve seen this a million times before, but it still gets me every time.

I’m listening to a man tell a story. A woman he knows was in a devastating car accident; her life shattered in an instant. She now lives in a state of near-permanent pain; a paraplegic; many of her hopes stolen.

He tells of how she had been a mess before the accident, but that the tragedy had engendered positive changes in her life. That she was, as a result of this devastation, living a wonderful life.

And then he utters the words. The words that are responsible for nothing less than emotional, spiritual and psychological violence:

Everything happens for a reason. That this was something that had to happen in order for her to grow.

That’s the kind of bullshit that destroys lives. And it is categorically untrue.

It is amazing to me that so many of these myths persist—and that is why I share actionable tools and strategies to work with your pain in my free newsletter. These myths are nothing more than platitudes cloaked as sophistication, and they preclude us from doing the one and only thing we must do when our lives are turned upside down: grieve.

You know exactly what I’m talking about. You’ve heard these countless times. You’ve probably even uttered them a few times yourself. And every single one of them needs to be annihilated.

Let me be crystal clear: if you’ve faced a tragedy and someone tells you in any way, shape or form that your tragedy was meant to be, that it happened for a reason, that it will make you a better person, or that taking responsibility for it will fix it, you have every right to remove them from your life.

Grief is brutally painful. Grief does not only occur when someone dies. When relationships fall apart, you grieve. When opportunities are shattered, you grieve. When dreams die, you grieve. When illnesses wreck you, you grieve.

So I’m going to repeat a few words I’ve uttered countless times; words so powerful and honest they tear at the hubris of every jackass who participates in the debasing of the grieving:

Some things in life cannot be fixed. They can only be carried. 

These words come from my dear friend Megan Devine, one of the only writers in the field of loss and trauma I endorse. These words are so poignant because they aim right at the pathetic platitudes our culture has come to embody on an increasingly hopeless level. Losing a child cannot be fixed. Being diagnosed with a debilitating illness cannot be fixed. Facing the betrayal of your closest confidante cannot be fixed.

They can only be carried.

I hate to break it to you, but although devastation can lead to growth, it often doesn’t. The reality is that it often destroys lives. And the real calamity is that this happens precisely because we’ve replaced grieving with advice. With platitudes. With our absence.

I now live an extraordinary life. I’ve been deeply blessed by the opportunities I’ve had and the radically unconventional life I’ve built for myself. Yet even with that said, I’m hardly being facetious when I say that loss has not in and of itself made me a better person. In fact, in some ways it’s hardened me.

While so much loss has made me acutely aware and empathetic of the pains of others, it has made me more insular and predisposed to hide. I have a more cynical view of human nature, and a greater impatience with those who are unfamiliar with what loss does to people.

Above all, I’ve been left with a pervasive survivor’s guilt that has haunted me all my life. This guilt is really the genesis of my hiding, self-sabotage and brokenness.

In short, my pain has never been eradicated, I’ve just learned to channel it into my work with others. I consider it a great privilege to work with others in pain, but to say that my losses somehow had to happen in order for my gifts to grow would be to trample on the memories of all those I lost too young; all those who suffered needlessly, and all those who faced the same trials I did early in life, but who did not make it.

I’m simply not going to do that. I’m not going to construct some delusional narrative fallacy for myself so that I can feel better about being alive. I’m not going to assume that God ordained me for life instead of all the others so that I could do what I do now. And I’m certainly not going to pretend that I’ve made it through simply because I was strong enough; that I became “successful” because I “took responsibility.”

There’s a lot of “take responsibility” platitudes in the personal development space, and they are largely nonsense. People tell others to take responsibility when they don’t want to understand.

Because understanding is harder than posturing. Telling someone to “take responsibility” for their loss is a form of benevolent masturbation. It’s the inverse of inspirational porn: it’s sanctimonious porn.

Personal responsibility implies that there’s something to take responsibility for. You don’t take responsibility for being raped or losing your child. You take responsibility for how you choose to live in the wake of the horrors that confront you, but you don’t choose whether you grieve. We’re not that smart or powerful. When hell visits us, we don’t get to escape grieving.

This is why all the platitudes and fixes and posturing are so dangerous: in unleashing them upon those we claim to love, we deny them the right to grieve.

In so doing, we deny them the right to be human. We steal a bit of their freedom precisely when they’re standing at the intersection of their greatest fragility and despair.

No one—and I mean no one—has that authority. Though we claim it all the time.

The irony is that the only thing that even can be “responsible” amid loss is grieving.

So if anyone tells you some form of get over it, move on, or rise above, you can let them go.

If anyone avoids you amidst loss, or pretends like it didn’t happen, or disappears from your life, you can let them go.

If anyone tells you that all is not lost, that it happened for a reason, that you’ll become better as a result of your grief, you can let them go.

Let me reiterate: all of those platitudes are bullshit.

You are not responsible to those who try to shove them down your throat. You can let them go.

I’m not saying you should. That is up to you, and only up to you. It isn’t an easy decision to make and should be made carefully. But I want you to understand that you can.

I’ve grieved many times in my life. I’ve been overwhelmed with shame and self-hatred so strong it’s nearly killed me.

The ones who helped—the only ones who helped—were those who were there. And saidnothing.

In that nothingness, they did everything.

I am here—I have lived—because they chose to love me. They loved me in their silence, in their willingness to suffer with me, alongside me, and through me. They loved me in their desire to be as uncomfortable, as destroyed, as I was, if only for a week, an hour, even just a few minutes.

Most people have no idea how utterly powerful this is.

Are there ways to find “healing” amid devastation? Yes. Can one be “transformed” by the hell life thrusts upon them? Absolutely. But it does not happen if one is not permitted to grieve. Because grief itself is not an obstacle.

The obstacles come later. The choices as to how to live; how to carry what we have lost; how to weave a new mosaic for ourselves? Those come in the wake of grief. It cannot be any other way.

Grief is woven into the fabric of the human experience. If it is not permitted to occur, its absence pillages everything that remains: the fragile, vulnerable shell you might become in the face of catastrophe.

Yet our culture has treated grief as a problem to be solved, an illness to be healed, or both. In the process, we’ve done everything we can to avoid, ignore, or transform grief. As a result, when you’re faced with tragedy you usually find that you’re no longer surrounded by people, you’re surrounded by platitudes.

What to Offer Instead

When a person is devastated by grief, the last thing they need is advice. Their world has been shattered. This means that the act of inviting someone—anyone—into their world is an act of great risk. To try and fix or rationalize or wash away their pain only deepens their terror.

Instead, the most powerful thing you can do is acknowledge. Literally say the words:

I acknowledge your pain. I am here with you.

Note that I said with you, not for you. For implies that you’re going to do something. That is not for you to enact. But to stand with your loved one, to suffer with them, to listen to them, to do everything but something is incredibly powerful.

There is no greater act than acknowledgment. And acknowledgment requires no training, no special skills, no expertise. It only requires the willingness to be present with a wounded soul, and to stay present, as long as is necessary.

Be there. Only be there. Do not leave when you feel uncomfortable or when you feel like you’re not doing anything. In fact, it is when you feel uncomfortable and like you’re notdoing anything that you must stay.

Because it is in those places—in the shadows of horror we rarely allow ourselves to enter—where the beginnings of healing are found. This healing is found when we have others who are willing to enter that space alongside us. Every grieving person on earth needs these people.

Thus I beg you, I plead with you, to be one of these people.

You are more needed than you will ever know.

And when you find yourself in need of those people, find them. I guarantee they are there.

Everyone else can go.

Vaccines, Vaccine Injury, & My Perspective as a Doctor & Mom

An Apology Letter:

I’ve ordered thousands of vaccines in my career as a physician.   Until recently I had never considered vaccine injury as more than folklore.  Weeks ago I never would’ve believed a story about vaccine injured triplets….so the past few weeks have been difficult.  I have struggled to make sense of all that I have seen and learned.  I met a mother of triplets the other weekend, a very attractive white woman with years added onto her face and her smile.  She recalled to me the day her triplets were born.  She and her then husband were ecstatic that she was able to carry them for 36 weeks.

At the time, mom was so happy that they were inside of her long enough to mature, they were born perfectly healthy.  I can totally relate since I am now twelve weeks post0partum.  I had very similar worries carrying my little princess.  Mom’s eyes dropped though as I gave her a hearty smile of excitement.  The same day that her triplets were given their six-month check-up and vaccines, was the same day that all three of her kids checked out.  She said it was as if someone replaced her children with new ones.  They unlearned all they knew…regressed and screamed for days.  I stood there motionless and speechless.  She didn’t want my pity, nor my tears, she just wanted me to know.

I’m a new mom, a sister, an aunt, a cousin, a friend, and a family medicine physician.  I’m from a small town called Gary, Indiana.  As a matter of fact, I practice medicine about two blocks away from the house that I along-with my eight brothers and sisters grew up in.  My dad bought the house in the 60s, after he met my mom.  They both migrated to the Midwest to escape the blatant racial tension of the deep south, and the rest is history.

In our small town the emergency room is named after my dad for all the great medical care he has provided through the years.  During the financial boom he even donated money to build part of it… He’s a pretty special guy; we both can sit and gush about each other for hours at a time.  I’ve always been a Daddy’s girl.

I came back home to practice medicine in our small town after spending eight years in Nashville, TN.  I did my undergraduate work at Vanderbilt University.  After graduation I went to medical school at Meharry Medical College, my Dad’s alma matar, with my two sisters Ruth and Rebekkah.

Our family-run clinic is sometimes my pride and joy, and other times the bane of my existence lol.  My brother Nathaniel is the director (he says he’s going to miss me being pregnant because I was much more pleasant).  My mom Ruthie is the manager (she expects us to wear our white coats even when the AC is out).  My Dad, the smartest and most charming doctor I’ve ever met, is 86 and he still sees patients a few times a week.  We also have a wonderful doctor named Shelly Sandifer in our clinic.  She came to work with us after my sister Rebekkah passed away trying to have a child of her own.  Dr. Sandifer has a lovely Bajan/British accent, a great sense of humor, and the patients love her.  We practice community medicine every single day.

We treat families at our clinic.  Sometimes I don’t have to ask patients much about their family history.  I treat their aunts, uncles, parents, and sometimes even their grandparents…it’s the best feeling in the world.  Our patients trust us to take care of them, and that is something that we all take very personally. When we say, “our family, treating your family…” we absolutely mean it.

We all took an oath to first and foremost “Do No Harm.”  It’s been difficult. Throughout my tenure as a physician, I have watched while our academy has pushed certain medication that we find years later has been causing more harm than good…that hurts.

I have witnessed the vaccine schedule grow from 16 doses of 4 vaccines from birth to six years old when I was a child, to the current recommendation of 49 doses of 14 vaccines between birth and age six, and 69 doses of 16 vaccines between birth and the age of eighteen….and we’ve been giving them on-time, sometimes five shots a day to help kids ‘catch-up’, and all without question.  Medical school and residency taught us all to do so.

I guess I cant help but wonder if there’s a connection between the fact that when we had to give fewer vaccines we had fewer childhood diseases.  It is only human to wonder.  We had fewer learning disabilities, less asthma, less autism, and less diabetes.  Autism in particular was 1 in 500 in the late seventies and it has now skyrocketed to 1 in 50.  Why so many?  Why so soon?

I am so sorry that I didn’t know that the government has paid out $3billion to families injured by vaccines through the VICP (Vaccine Injury Compensation Program).  As a matter of fact, I assumed that all vaccines were very very safe.  They have to be because we give them to everyone’s kids, right?!??  I am so sorry that I didn’t realize that there are tens of thousands of families on a list that have never received compensation because they couldn’t 100% prove that the vaccine created an injury (even though many of them can pinpoint the day and time that their babies’ lights dimmed).

And until recently, I had never heard of a CDC scientist/whistleblower named Dr. William Thompson (note, I can’t link to a story because even the article written in Forbes has been removed online).  Dr Thompson was brave enough to come forward because his conscience was killing him.  I feel like such an ignorant ASS to say the least.

Dr. Thompson revealed that a study conducted at the CDC showed a 236% increase in the rate of autism in African-American boys who received the MMR vaccine before the age of 36 months.  He states that an internal decision was made to change the study results to demonstrate that there was no increased risk…and he feels really bad about all the lives he ruined.

The documentary Vaxxed plays a percentage of the four hours of voice recordings between the whistleblower/Dr. Thompson and another scientist.  All of this would be impossible to believe without those recorded phone conversations.

Of course I am Black mom, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend.  As a Black physician, with a mostly Black patient base, I am very very concerned and very sorry.  But I am also concerned as a person that loves all people and children regardless of race.  What does this information about one vaccine on one group of children infer about all vaccines and all groups of children?

As a mom of a new tiny precious being and a doctor of many, I am left with so many questions:  Should vaccines be delayed?  Are any vaccines safe?  If so, which ones?  Are there more vaccine-injured victims that we even know about?  Should genetic testing be conducted on all children before we assume that they can tolerate all of those vaccines?

And my most important question: Why won’t Congress subpoena Dr. Thompson so that we can really really know the truth about this particular vaccine.

I have to thank Del Bigtree for taking the time to show me the data that I was inadvertently pretending not to see, and I really have to thank Dr. Thompson.  Without this information, we would never have known, and it all would’ve just been written off as mishmash of conspiracy theories.

With what I now know, I cannot support mandatory vaccines for children.  Some kids respond well to vaccines, but others do not.  How can we be sure who will and who will not?  Should we really sacrifice one for many?  Parents have to have the right to choose!  Parents have to make their own informed decisions.   Parents deserve access to this information which has been buried so deep that even I, a practicing physician, hadn’t been aware of.

I apologize from the bottom of my heart to any children and parents that I have unknowingly harmed.  I had no idea.

Please ask questions and make the time to go see the documentary Vaxxed. Form your own opinions, do your own research, and then talk to your physician.   Demand to hear from Dr. Thompson, pass this information along to your loved ones, and start these conversations. We all deserve answers, and this is the only way to get any.

People keep asking me if I’m scared to speak about this.  My realest fear is that we will continue to assume that these moms are making this stuff up.

Sincerely,

Rachael L Ross, M.D., PhD

Mineral Water Removes Aluminum From The Brain

Editor’s note: You can also by liquid minerals and add to regular water (hopefully filtered), juice or carbonated water.  I use TraceMinerals brand Trace Minerals Drops.  It has silicon in it and from my research, is the same thing as Silica.

There has been a dramatic increase in neurological diseases linked to aluminum toxicity. The blood brain barrier doesn’t stop aluminum’s intrusion into our gray matter. Aluminum accumulates and remains in tissue that doesn’t have a rapid cellular turnover.

Apoptosis is the natural cell death and replacement process that occurs throughout the body, excluding cancer cells. Cancer cells keep reproducing and colonizing into tumors unless apoptosis is introduced or the cells are outright killed from chemical compounds, both natural and synthetic.

Aluminum accrues to toxic levels over time in slow apoptotic cell turnover tissues, such as bone matter, the heart and the brain. The brain and its associated nervous system is where diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, MS, chronic fatigue and other neurological or auto-immune diseases manifest, including the complete autistic spectrum, from learning disorders to full blown autism.

There is no shortage of aluminum toxins in our environment. It’s in cookware, beverage containers, foil, cigarette smoke, cosmetics, antiperspirants, sunscreen, antacids, and those ubiquitous chemtrails that most ignore from which aluminum nanoparticles can be breathed into our lungs and routed directly into our blood or through the sinuses into our brains.

Aluminum is in all vaccines. Injecting aluminum bypasses the possibility of eliminating it through normal channels. Straight into the blood it goes to be carried into the brain and heart, adding to their accumulated aluminum toxicity loads.

According to Dr. Chris Exley, PhD, we have come into the aluminum age. Many trolling commentators love to explain how aluminum is the must common mineral on the planet and therefore it’s harmless. Dr. Exley has dedicated over two decades of his scientific life to researching aluminum toxicity. He calls the period of time from the early 20th Century to now the “Age of Aluminum.”

Before then, aluminum remained in the ground as the most abundant mineral in earth that hadn’t yet been mined. Dr. Exley claims mining aluminum and using it in so many ways corresponds to the marked increase of neurological diseases.

A key aspect of his conference delivery concerned helping vaccinated kids improve their neurological damage. Ironically, it involves the second most abundant mineral in mother earth – silica. Exley has put kids who had autism spectrum disorders or other neurological damage from vaccinations on a form of silica known as silicic acid with excellent results.

Silicic acid is basically oxygenated silica. Exley considers this the best and most bio-available way to get silica through the gut and into the blood, then into brain matter where it binds with the aluminum molecules and leads them out of brain cell tissue safely through the urine.

He had used a Malasysian mineral water called Spritzer on aluminum toxic children suffering from autism spectrum disorders with significant success. Aluminum is in almost all vaccines. Later he and his team had 15 Alzheimer’s disease (AD) patients use that water at the same rate of one liter per day for 13 weeks.

Aluminum levels were lower by anywhere from 50 to 70 percent in all the subjects involved, and of the 15 AD patients, eight no longer deteriorated and three actually showed substantial cognitive increase. Perhaps coconut oil is better for reversing AD, but mineral waters high in Orthosilicic or ionic silicic acid will reduce aluminum toxicity in the brain to help ward off AD.

The more USA accessible mineral waters with similar levels of silicic acid to Spritzer, which can penetrate the blood-brain barrier, are Volvic and Fiji. My personal favorite is Fiji because it has the highest level of ionic suspended silica as silicic acid and is the least expensive. I’ve seen it in WalMart at $1.99 per liter.

Also, People’s Chemist Shane Ellison analyzed various water bottles and said Fiji water bottles are free of BPA and “its chemical cousins”. Others he rates highly as BPA free are Voss, Evian, and Smart Water.

The suggested protocol is at least five days consuming a 1.5 liter bottle of water daily. More is required for high levels of aluminum toxicity. Dr. Exley considers drinking the whole bottle within an hour as the most efficient method of detoxing aluminum from the brain.

Dr. Exley explains that there are three commercial bottled waters listing silica amounts as milligrams (mg) per liter on the bottle. Fiji has the highest amount of the three. Neither of us is affiliated with Fiji.

Silica mineral waters can be supplemented to help prevent dementia. Obviously it can also be used as an adjunct with pure cold pressed coconut oil to stop early onset Alzheimer’s or even reverse most of the symptoms after AD symptoms appear. More on coconut oil for Alzheimer’s can be found here.

Aluminum (Al) is passed out through the urine when one supplements silica sufficiently. It seems there’s little danger of taking too much, as long as adequate water is consumed and vitamin B1 and potassium levels are maintained.

More About Silica

Silica helps ensure collagen elasticity of all connecting tissues in the body, including tendons and cartilage. This reduces aches and pains and maintains your body’s flexibility. It has also been determined that high levels of blood serum silica keep arterial plaque from building and clogging blood vessels.

A major culprit for arterial plaque has recently shifted from cholesterol buildup to arterial calcification from serum calcium that is not absorbed as bone matter. It’s known that silica is an important part of building bone matter.

Without sufficient silica, magnesium, and vitamin K2, calcium doesn’t become part of bone matter and remains in the blood to potentially calcify in the soft tissue of inner artery walls and the heart.

Silica is vital for keeping strong bones and a healthy cardiovascular system. This qualifies silica as an essential anti-aging mineral that is much more than a skin deep beauty mineral. Other good sources of silica are the herb horsetail, cucumbers, and diatomaceous earth powder.

Although these three other sources are helpful for the recent aforementioned reasons, they lack the ionic suspension of silicic acid found in the mineral waters to penetrate the blood-brain barrier. I just found these other sources for ionic silica or silicic acid as well, here and here.
