Create your own reality
You can change your reality by understanding how our thoughts, emotions and actions are creating our reality each minute, hour of everyday of our lives. We are energetic beings, receiving and sending positive and negative vibrations, each having their own resonance.
Your aura will depend on the positive or negative energy you generate through your thoughts, emotions and actions. Are your intentions loving and helpful or fear and greed?
It is interesting to note that aura is the human energy field that surrounds our entire body, for over a hundred years, adding to the knowledge our ancestors already possessed. This field consists of multiple bands of energy called auric layers or auric fields, that encompass the subtle body, connecting us to the outside world.
We should remember we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Religion is part of that experience providing rules, concepts, dogma and various other human concepts.
We all have free-will to chose our spiritual path, any religion or no religion. We are here to learn the ways of love and wisdom and to help others. Whatever helps you with that task is your decision.
One way that may help is meditation. The proper way to meditate is just start. Meditation is a natural relaxation state of the mind and the most important mental exercise to practice during our lifetime. Meditation is actually our natural state, but with all chaos in the world, makes it more difficult.
The best way to establish a regular meditation practice is just start. Mindfulness meditation can be practice all the time. Simply focuses on the current moment, not yesterday or tomorrow but the present moment, paying attention to what you are doing. Pay attention and be aware of your thoughts, emotions and actions in all aspect of your day. Our thoughts, emotions and action generate energy affecting us and those around us.
When your ready to develop to develop a regular meditation practice start with what works for you. Start with 5 to 20 minute sessions and do it consistently each day. Sitting in a chair or floor with good posture, close your eyes, take 5–10 slow deep breaths, following your breath. Your relaxing your mind so try not to think of anything. Just focus on a point in the front of eyes. You will find your thoughts drifting to problems just bring the focus back to the point in front of the eyes. The time you meditate is up to you.
According to Hindu Scripture, meditation has been practiced since 1500 BCE, starting as a religious practice. The practice spread to China and India around the fifth century BCE and other forms of Meditation developed in several, including Taoism, Buddhism, Islam, and Christianity.
In the Bible, Psalm 1:1-2 says “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; (2) but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.”
In Joshua 1: 8 states “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it.”
Buddha said “Meditation brings wisdom; lack of mediation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.”
Meditation is a wonderful way to learn to control that unruly mind that always seems to get us in trouble. Starting a practice and sticking to it requires dedication, but if you succeed, the rewards are great.
Autoimmune diseases refer to diseases caused by the body’s own immune system attacking the body. (Kateryna Kon/Shutterstock)
The research is hard to ignore, vaccines can trigger autoimmunity with a laundry list of diseases to follow. With harmful and toxic metals as some vaccine ingredients, who is susceptible, and which individuals are more at risk?
No one would accuse Yehuda Shoenfeld of being a quack. The Israeli clinician has spent more than three decades studying the human immune system and is at the pinnacle of his profession. You might say he is more foundation than fringe in his specialty—he wrote the texts.
“The Mosaic of Autoimmunity, Autoantibodies, Diagnostic Criteria in Autoimmune Diseases, Infection, and Autoimmunity, Cancer and Autoimmunity”—is one of a list 25 titles long and some are cornerstones of clinical practice. It’s hardly surprising that Shoenfeld has been called the “Godfather of Autoimmunology”—the study of the immune system turned on itself in a wide array of diseases from type 1 diabetes to ulcerative colitis and multiple sclerosis.
But something strange is happening in the world of immunology lately and a small piece of evidence of it is that the “Godfather of Autoimmunology” is pointing to vaccines—specifically, some of their ingredients including the toxic metal aluminum—as a significant contributor to the growing global epidemic of autoimmune diseases.
The bigger evidence is a huge body of research that’s poured in over the past 15 years, and particularly in the past five years. Take for example, a recent article published in the journal Pharmacological Research in which Shoenfeld and colleagues issue unprecedented guidelines naming four categories of people who are most at risk for vaccine-induced autoimmunity.
“On one hand,” vaccines prevent infections which can trigger autoimmunity, say the paper’s authors, Alessandra Soriano, of the Department of Clinical Medicine and Rheumatology at the Campus Bio-Medico University in Rome, Gideon Nesher, of the Hebrew University Medical School in Jerusalem, and Shoenfeld, founder and head of the Zabludowicz Center of Autoimmune Diseases in the Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer.
He is also editor of three medical journals and author of more than 1,500 research papers across the spectrum of medical journalism and founder of the International Congress on Auto-immunology.
“On the other hand, many reports that describe post-vaccination autoimmunity strongly suggest that vaccines can indeed trigger autoimmunity. Defined autoimmune diseases that may occur following vaccinations include arthritis, lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus) diabetes mellitus, thrombocytopenia, vasculitis, dermatomyositis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, and demyelinating disorders. Almost all types of vaccines have been reported to be associated with the onset of ASIA.”
Autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants—or ASIA, (also known as Shoenfeld’s syndrome)—first appeared in the Journal of Autoimmunology four years ago. It is an umbrella term for a collection of similar symptoms, including chronic fatigue syndrome, that result after exposure to an adjuvant—an environmental agent including common vaccine ingredients that stimulate the immune system.
Since then an enormous body of research, using ASIA as a paradigm, has begun to unravel the mystery of how environmental toxins, particularly the metal aluminum used in vaccines, can trigger an immune system chain reaction in susceptible individuals and may lead to overt autoimmune disease.
Autoimmune disease results when the body’s system—meant to attack foreign invaders—turns instead to attack part of the body it belongs to (auto is Greek for self). If the immune system is like a national defense system, antibodies are like drones programmed to recognize a certain type of invader (a bacteria say) and to destroy them or mark them for destruction by other special forces.
Autoantibodies are like drones that are misidentifying a component of the human body and have launched a sustained attack on it. If they mistakenly target a component of the conductive sheath around neurons, for example, nerve impulses stop conducting properly, muscles go into spasms and coordination fails, and multiple sclerosis results. If autoantibodies erroneously focus on joint tissue, rheumatoid arthritis results. If they target the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas, type 1 diabetes, and so on.
“Throughout our lifetime the normal immune system walks a fine line between preserving normal immune reactions and developing autoimmune diseases,” says the paper. “The healthy immune system is tolerant to self-antigens. When self-tolerance is disturbed, dysregulation of the immune system follows, resulting in emergence of an autoimmune disease. Vaccination is one of the conditions that may disturb this homeostasis in susceptible individuals, resulting in autoimmune phenomena and ASIA.”
Who is “susceptible” is the subject of the paper titled, “Predicting post-vaccination autoimmunity: Who might be at risk?” It lists four categories of people: 1) Those who have had a previous autoimmune reaction to a vaccine, 2) Anyone with a medical history of autoimmunity, 3) Patients with a history of allergic reactions, 4) Anyone at high risk of developing autoimmune disease including anyone with a family history of autoimmunity, presence of autoantibodies which are detectable by blood tests and other factors including low vitamin D and smoking.
Regarding those who have had a previous adverse reaction to vaccines, the paper cites five relevant studies including the case of a death of a teenage girl six months following her third Gardasil injection against the HPV virus. She had experienced a range of symptoms shortly after her first dose, including dizziness, numbness, and tingling in her hands, and memory lapses. After her second injection, she developed “intermittent arm weakness, frequent tiredness requiring daytime naps,” worse tingling, night sweats, chest pain, and palpitations.
A full autopsy was unrevealing but blood and spleen tissue analysis revealed HPV-16 L1 gene DNA fragments—matching the DNA found in vials of the Gardasil vaccine against cervical cancer—“thus implicating the vaccine as a causal factor.” The DNA fragments had also been found to be “complexed with the aluminum adjuvant” which, according to the report, have been shown to persist for up to eight to 10 years causing chronic immune system stimulation.
“Although data is limited,” Shoenfeld and his colleagues concluded, “it seems preferable that individuals with prior autoimmune or autoimmune-like reactions to vaccinations, should not be immunized, at least not with the same type of vaccine.”
Established Autoimmune Condition
The second group, which the paper cites for vaccine exemption, is patients with “established autoimmune conditions.” Vaccines don’t work so well in them, say Shoenfeld and his colleagues, and they are at “risk for flares following vaccination.”
Inoculations that contain live viruses including chickenpox, yellow fever, and the measles, mumps, and rubella triple vaccine are “generally contraindicated” for people with autoimmune conditions because of the risk of “uncontrolled viral replication.” But inactivated vaccines are not such a good idea either because they usually contain the added ingredient aluminum, linked to autoimmunity.
The immunologists describe recent studies in which patients with autoimmune rheumatic disease given the influenza vaccine (without aluminum) suffered more joint pain and fever than controls and whose levels of autoantibodies (the drones that attack self) increased after receiving the flu vaccine.
What’s more, they developed new types of autoantibodies that weren’t present before the vaccines—and those persisted. As the presence of autoantibodies can be predictive of developing autoimmune disease in patients without symptoms, even years ahead of disease onset, this is troubling to those who understand immunology.
A number of studies claim vaccines are safe for the “overwhelming majority of patients with established autoimmune diseases,” the study allows, but they only looked at rheumatoid arthritis and lupus and not at severe and active cases so “the potential benefit of vaccination should be weighed against its potential risk,” they cautioned.
Patients With a History of Allergy
Vaccine trials have usually excluded “vulnerable” individuals—only extremely healthy individuals with no allergies are recruited. It’s a “selection bias,” say Soriano and Shoenfeld, and has likely resulted in serious adverse events being “considerably underestimated” in “real life where vaccines are mandated to all individuals regardless of their susceptibility.”
The true incidence of allergic reactions to vaccines, normally estimated at between one in 50,000 to one in a million doses, is probably much higher and particularly where gelatin or egg proteins are on the ingredients list, they say.
There’s a long list of vaccine ingredients that are potential allergens: Besides the infectious agents themselves, there are those from hen’s egg, horse serum, baker’s yeast, numerous antibiotics, formaldehyde, and lactose, as well “inadvertent” ingredients such as latex. People’s allergic histories have to be taken before vaccination say the researchers. But some signs of reaction don’t show up until after the shot.
The public health nurse or general practitioner might tell patients that a long-lasting swelling around the injection site after a vaccine is a normal reaction, for example. But that is not what the immunologists say.
“[A]luminum sensitization manifests as nodules [hard lumps] at the injection site that often regress after weeks or months, but may persist for years.” In such cases, they say, a patch test can be done to confirm sensitivity and to avoid vaccination.
According to a growing body of research, though, allergy may be only the beginning of many dangerous aluminum-induced phenomena.
The Trouble With Aluminum
Aluminum has been added to vaccines since about 1926 when Alexander Glenny and colleagues noticed it would produce better antibody responses in vaccines than the antigen alone. Glenny figured the alum was inducing what he called a “depot effect”—slowing the release of the antigen and heightening the immune response.
For 60 years his theory was accepted dogma. And over the same time, the vaccine schedule grew decade on decade, but few ever questioned the effects of injecting aluminum into the body, which is strange considering its known toxicity.
A PubMed search on aluminum and “toxicity” turns up 4,258 entries. Its neurotoxicity is well documented. It affects memory, cognition, psychomotor control, damages the blood-brain barrier, activates brain inflammation, depresses mitochondrial function—and plenty of research suggests it is a key player in the formation of the amyloid “plaques” and tangles in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients. It’s been implicated in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and autism and demonstrated to induce allergy.
When kidney dialysis patients were accidentally infused with aluminum, the “dialysis-induced encephalopathy” they developed neurological symptoms—speech abnormalities, tremors, memory loss, impaired concentration, and behavioral changes. Many of the patients eventually went into comas and died. The lucky ones survived—when the source of toxicity, aluminum, was removed from their dialysis they recovered rapidly.
With these new observations, researchers began investigating the adjuvant effects of aluminum and in the past decade, there has been a flurry of research. Far from being a sandbag that holds the antigen for a while and then gets excreted, it turns out that aluminum salts trigger a storm of defense action.
Within hours of injection of the same aluminum oxy-hydroxide in vaccines into mice, for example, armies of specialized immune cells are on the move, calling in grid coordinates for more specialist assault forces.
Within a day, a whole host of immune system commandos are in play—neutrophils, eosinophils, inflammatory monocytes, myeloid and dendritic cells, activating lymphocytes and secreting proteins called cytokines. The cytokines themselves cause collateral damage but they send out signals, directing cell-to-cell communication and recruiting other cells into action.
If the next phase of the attack is launched—fibroblast growth factor, interferons, interleukins, platelet-derived growth factor, transforming growth factor and tumor necrosis factor might all be engaged. There’s evidence that poorly understood and pesky inflammasomes, (currently a topic of cutting-edge cancer causation research) such as the NOD-like receptor 3 are activated too, but it’s all still too early to say exactly what they’re doing.
New research emerging from the University of British Columbia has found that aluminum adjuvant injected into mice can alter the expression of genes associated with autoimmunity. And in their recent study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, immunologists at the University of Colorado found that even host DNA is recruited into the aluminum assault, that it rapidly coats injected alum, triggering effects that scientists have barely scratched the surface of understanding.
The Significance of Macrophagic Myofasciitis
This mobility or “translocation” of aluminum in the body is perhaps the most disturbing of the mounting evidence in current aluminum research. In 1998, French researcher Romain Gherardi and his colleagues observed an emerging condition of unknown origin that presented in patients post-vaccination with chronic fatigue-like symptoms including swollen lymph nodes, joint and muscle pain, and exhaustion.
Tissue biopsies of the patient’s deltoid revealed lesions up to 1 cm in diameter and unique from similar lesions of other diseases. They went to the lab for analysis and to Gherardi’s astonishment, they mainly consisted of macrophages—large white blood cells in the immune system whose job is to swallow up foreign invaders in the body. Enclosed in the cellular fluid of these phagocytes were agglomerates of nanocrystals of aluminum.
Gherardi and his colleagues began injecting mice with aluminum to see what happened. Their research published in 2013 revealed that the metal particles were engulfed by macrophages and formed MMF [magnetomotive force]-like granulomas that dispersed—to distant lymph nodes, spleen, liver, and eventually the brain.
“This strongly suggests that long-term adjuvant biopersistence within phagocytic cells is a prerequisite of slow brain translocation and delayed neurotoxicity,” writes Gherardi in his February 2015 review of the relevant research in Frontiers in Neurology.
A more frightening animal study of aluminum is that of Spanish veterinary researcher Lluis Lujan’s study of ovine ASIA. After huge numbers of sheep in Spain died in 2008 in the wake of a compulsory multiple-vaccine campaign against bluetongue in Spain in 2008, Lujan set out to find out what killed them—and he began by inoculating them with aluminum.
His 2013 study found that only 0.5 percent of sheep inoculated with aluminum vaccines showed immediate reactions of lethargy, transient blindness, stupor, prostration, and seizures—“characterized by a severe meningoencephalitis, similar to post-vaccine reactions seen in humans.” Most of them recovered, temporarily, but postmortem exams of the ones who didn’t revealed acute brain inflammation.
The delayed onset “chronic” phase of the disease affected far more of the sheep—50–70 percent of flocks and sometimes virtually 100 percent of animals within a given flock, usually including all of those who had previously recovered.
The reaction was frequently triggered by exposure to cold and began with restlessness and compulsive wool-biting, then progressed to acute redness of the skin, generalized weakness, extreme weight loss, and muscle tremors, and finally, entered the terminal phase where the animals went down on their front quarters, became comatose and died. Post-mortem examinations revealed “severe neuron necrosis” and aluminum in the nerve tissue.
The immune system’s reaction to aluminum “represents a major health challenge,” Gherardi declares in his recent review, and he adds that “attempts to seriously examine safety concerns raised by the bio-persistent character and brain accumulation of alum particles have not been made … A lot must be done to understand how, in certain individuals, alum-containing vaccines may become insidiously unsafe.”
Back to the problem of which “certain individuals” should avoid vaccination to avoid autoimmune disease.
People Prone to Develop Autoimmunity
Soriano and Shoenfeld identify a final category—anyone at risk of developing autoimmune disease. Since a number of them have been shown to have genetic factors that would include anyone with a family history of autoimmune disease. It also includes anyone who has tested positive for autoantibodies which can indicate disease years before symptoms show up. Vaccinations, the doctors say, “may trigger or worsen the disease.”
Smokers too, have an exceptionally high risk of developing an autoimmune disease, says the report. The American Cancer Society estimates that about 18 percent of Americans smoke. That means about 42 million Americans have an elevated risk of developing an autoimmune disease and they’re stacking the odds with every vaccine.
And finally, factors that Shoenfeld and Soriano associate with high risk of developing autoimmunity are high estrogen and low vitamin D—which means anyone taking birth control or hormone replacement therapy and, according to one 2009 study of vitamin D status, about three-quarters of American teens and adults should be wary of vaccines.
Shoenfeld doesn’t seem to mean to exclude all of these people from immunization, however. The paper concludes that “for the overwhelming majority of individuals, vaccines carry no risk of systemic autoimmune disease and should be administered according to current recommendations.” Which is in stark contrast to the body of the paper. The final word is cautionary about weighing the “potential benefit of vaccination … against its potential risk.”
It’s exemplary of a strange sort of schizophrenia in a wide range of recent immunology papers. The doctors seem to be trying to reconcile a century of “safe and effective” vaccine dogma with the last decade’s worth of terrifying research findings. There’s a lot of “on the one hand” and “on the other hand” in them.
The new research seems about to gain the upper hand, however. A 2013 overview of ASIA by six immunologists including Shoenfeld, for example, is a catalog of vaccine side effects from Gardasil deaths, narcolepsy epidemics, infertility, chronic fatigue, dead sheep, and aluminum-addled brains. It is rife with statements that would have been virtually unheard of inside mainstream medicine a decade ago. Like this shocker:
“Perhaps, in twenty years, physicians will be dueling with better-characterized particles of autoimmunity, and the vaccines may become fully safe as well as effective. Nonetheless, the recognition of ASIA has initiated the change to put more efforts in identifying the good, the bad, and the ugly of vaccines and in particular of adjuvants as triggers of autoimmunity.”
Bad and ugly of vaccines? What’s wrong with the adjuvants? That’s not in the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] hand-out.
Or how about this one:
“Despite the huge amount of money invested in studying vaccines, there are few observational studies and virtually no randomized clinical trials documenting the effect on mortality of any of the existing vaccines. One recent paper found an increased hospitalization rate with the increase of the number of vaccine doses and a mortality rate ratio for 5–8 vaccine doses to 1–4 doses of 1.5, indicating a statistically significant increase of deaths associated with higher vaccine doses. Since vaccines are given to millions of infants annually, it is imperative that health authorities have scientific data from synergistic toxicity studies on all combinations of vaccines…”
That could be any anti-vaxxer jabbering on … but it’s not.
But here is the topper:
“The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that vaccines makers are immune from lawsuits charging that the design of the vaccine is defective. Thus there is need for innovative clinical trial design and the vaccines themselves should be redesigned.”
Immunologists including the world’s leading authority on autoimmunity are saying it is time to take vaccines back to the drawing board.
Autoimmune disease is the third leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and is now among the top 10 killers of young American women. The American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association estimates that 50 million Americans suffer from one of 88 autoimmune diseases—from type 1 diabetes to systemic lupus erythematosus—and some research puts the figure at one in five globally. At least 40 more diseases are suspected to be immune-mediated. Most of them are devastating—frequently crippling, expensive to treat, and incurable. And they are increasing at an astonishing pace.
At this stage, it looks like the more the research pours in, the harder it is going to get for pro-vaccine immunologists to keep multiple personality disorder—or complete nervous breakdown—at bay. Ten years of cutting-edge research into aluminum’s effects on the immune system has revealed primarily how wrong they were. And how little they know.
If, after 90 years, doctors finally have begun to seriously examine the mechanism and question the merits of injecting metal toxins into newborn babies, what have they yet to discover? ASIA sounds awful. (Too bad for all the people whose kids suffered through chronic fatigue when it was just a Freudian yearning to sleep with their mother.)
But what if, like Lujan’s sheep, the “negligible” minority that has been paying the price for the good of humanity is actually only the tip of the iceberg? What if some people with no apparent adverse immune reactions still have nanocrystals of aluminum silently depositing in their brains? What if ASIA really includes Alzheimer’s? ALS, autism? ADD? And that’s just the A’s.
Even if immunologists keep wearing their rose-colored glasses, and vaccine ingredients are only responsible for a tiny fraction of the exploding autoimmunity, the “ugly” in vaccines will still get harder and harder to ignore. When everyone on the planet is getting injected, 20 years is a long time for disabled people to stack up while scientists “duel with the characterized particles of autoimmunity.” Time is running out for doctors and researchers who see the “bad and ugly” side of vaccines and their adjuvants to do something about it.

THE PLAN shows the official agenda of the World Health Organization to have ten years of ongoing pandemics, from 2020 to 2030. This is revealed by a WHO virologist, Marion Koopmans. You will also see shocking evidence that the first pandemic was planned and abundantly announced right before it happened. Make sure to watch, and share this everywhere.
As we increase our understanding of the world around us was not as it seems, the same can be said of our true nature. It is all about the healing energy flowing through our body energy centers, then we will be more likely to heal ourselves. As we begin to discover our true selves, we can begin spiritual healing with the realization there is a Source, Universal Intelligence of pure divine energy, that connects us all.
Science may call it a quantum or biofield, described as “a field of energy and information, both putative and subtle, that regulates the homeodynamic function of living organisms and may play a substantial role in understanding and guiding health processes.” Science also tells us that the heart electromagnetic energy field be detected and measured several feet from the body. In eastern cultures, this energy is known as chi or qi, ki, prana, and chakras.
The Abrahamic religions, Christians, Jews and Islam may refer to this quantum or biofield as the Holy Spirit while Taoist refer to it as the Dao or the way. Hindu refer to prana and chakras while the Buddha included prana under a different name, one that is also used in yoga. The words is virya, and it means vitality, or life energy.
Consider all the different labels of this divine energy has been given by science, religion and different cultures the same. When we realize we are co-creators by our thoughts, emotions and actions then the healing process can begin.
It is interesting to note we are all subject to three types of diseases that affect the body, mind and Spirit and all are interrelated. Disease normally occurs during recurring negative thoughts, emotions and actions. We know the Law of Karma, we reap what we sow. The body is affected by bacteria, virus and an array of toxins in our foods and environment. Our bodies suffer from pain that needs physical healing. Our minds are susceptible to infection by fear, worries, anger, greed, selfishness, jealousy just to name of few, which requires mental healing. Our spirit is haunted by the disease of forgetting our true nature which cause man to forget their perfect divine nature and focus on the physical world. Ignorance creates imbalances between body, mind and spirit.
Chakras are the bodies seven energy centers. The healing process begins with clearing blockages in these energy centers and connect to the quantum field. Energy flows with love. When we love others as we love ourselves; love nature; be of service to others and are mindful of our thoughts, emotions and actions, the healing will begin. Prayer, meditation, contemplation and gratitude are part of the healing process.
Jesus message to us was we all have the ability to heal if we believe his message of love and enlightenment and look within ourselves to find the answers. In John 14:12 when Jesus said “Most certainly I tell you, he who believes in me, the works that I do, he will do also; and he will do greater works than these, because I am going to my Father.
Eastern philosophy and medicine, originating in ancient India and China, have traditionally regarded body structures and the life processes occurring within as inseparable. Their terminology resides halfway between structure and function and identifies certain entities in the human body, representing the flow of life energy and, in some sense, conduits for that flow that do not correspond to anatomical structures recognized by Western science and medicine. More on that subject at https://myhealthinfous.blogspot.com/2023/02/energy-centers-of-body.html
As the veil lifts, we are learning the world around us was and is not what we believed to be. The vaccines and big pharma meds are designed to make us sick not heal us. We are in a spiritual battle and we should realize we are powerful energic beings with the ability to heal ourselves. The first step is to believe and have patience.
10 Herbs That Help Boost Immunity: Current Studies
Our immune system is complex and protects us from infection and disease. Many parts of the body work separately and together to keep us healthy, but stress, lack of sleep, poor nutrition, and other factors can wear down our natural defenses.
Let’s look at 10 natural and easily obtained herbs that can boost our immunity to help keep us healthy as we push through the last months of winter cold.
Astragalus, also called Huangqi, is a root used in ancient Chinese medicine to strengthen and regulate the immune system. It was given for many conditions, including respiratory infection, hay fever, asthma, and chronic kidney disease.
A systematic review of studies finds that astragalus regulates our immune function, promotes the proliferation of immune cells, stimulates the release of cytokines (which control the growth of immune cells), and influences the secretion of immunoglobulin (antibodies) and conduction of immune signals.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) reports that astragalus may be safe when used “orally and appropriately,” and doses up to 60 grams daily for up to four months have been used without reported adverse effects. Possible but uncommon side effects include rash, itching, nasal symptoms, or stomach discomfort.
Cinnamon is a powerful antibacterial and antifungal spice that can help our immune system fight off infection. This aromatic spice can also relieve symptoms of autoimmune disorders.
One study finds that cinnamon offers significant relief of rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis symptoms, while findings from another one show cinnamon and its ingredients can be recommended to manage COVID-19 infection.
3. Black Pepper
One of the most common spices and used almost every day in cooking, black pepper has also shown promise against cancer.
A study confirmed that black pepper extract significantly enhances the cytotoxic activity of natural killer (NK) cells, and strongly suggests that it can exert immunomodulatory and antitumor action that can promote the maintenance of a healthy immune system.
Another in vitro study found that the active ingredient in pepper, called piperine, boosts the immune system to slow the replication of breast, prostate, and colon cancer cells, and could induce cancer cell death.
Used as both a spice and food for thousands of years, researchers have found that garlic offers a broad range of health benefits, especially as an immune system booster.
A systematic review of studies finds that garlic appears to enhance immune function by stimulating certain immune cell types, including macrophages, lymphocytes, and natural killer cells.
Another randomized controlled trial looked for evidence that aged garlic extract could boost human immune function against respiratory infection.
While the number of study participants who caught a cold or flu wasn’t significantly different, researchers found that the garlic group reduced cold and flu severity. Participants also experienced a reduction in the number of symptoms, and the number of work or school days missed.
5. Holy Basil
Different from common basil, holy basil is native to India and is a component of Ayurvedic medicine. Research finds holy basil can inhibit the growth of multidrug-resistant bacteria that include Staphylococcus, Enterococcus, and Pseudomonas.
Rosemary contains rosmarinic acid, which has been shown to modulate our immune response to have anti-allergy and decongestant properties. In a study with 29 participants, those given rosmarinic acid had decreased amounts of immune cells in nasal mucus, which reduced nasal congestion.
A review of studies concluded that rosemary has significant antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and neuroprotective properties.
Ashwagandha is a small woody plant native to India and North Africa that is used in Ayurvedic medicine. A clinical trial found that five participants who took 6 milliliters of ashwagandha root extract twice daily for 96 hours showed significant increases in immune cell activity.
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial found that ashwagandha extract significantly improved the immune profile of healthy subjects by modulating their innate and adaptive immune systems.
Researchers concluded that ashwagandha could be used to boost the immune system of people at risk for infection and during “widespread infections.”
8. Black Cumin Seeds
Black cumin seeds, also called black caraway, have a long tradition of use for therapeutic purposes.
A study identified compounds in black cumin seeds that can positively affect our immune signaling pathways, showing that this could be used as a dietary supplement to activate our immune responses.
A comprehensive review concluded that through a compound called thymoquinone, black cumin seed promotes immunity and cell survival, acts as an antitoxin, and can lessen the side effects of certain drugs.
9. Black Elderberry
Black elderberry, also called Sambucus nigra, refers to several varieties of the Sambucus tree, which has clusters of white flowers and black or blue-black berries.
A placebo-controlled, double-blind study of 312 plane travelers concluded that those who took elderberry supplements had significantly reduced cold duration and severity compared with passengers given a placebo instead.
A systematic review of studies from 2018 found that black elderberry supplements were effective to treat the symptoms of upper respiratory infection.
Echinacea refers to a group of flowering plants belonging to the daisy family. There are different species, but Echinacea purpurea is the most common.
A review of 16 studies found that echinacea was more effective than a placebo in preventing and treating upper respiratory infections.
Another review that looked at 14 studies found echinacea reduced the odds of catching a cold by almost 60 percent and decreased the symptom duration by nearly one-and-a-half days.
Are Immune-Boosting Herbal Supplements Safe to Use?
It’s important to get herbal supplements from a reputable brand.
“Echinacea and most herbal products are extremely variable,” Dr. Nima Majlesi, director of medical toxicology at Staten Island University Hospital, part of Northwell Health in New York, told The Epoch Times. He added that the labeling of products in health food stores can be incorrect due to a lack of FDA regulation.
People with allergic reactions to the contents of these supplements are the most obvious group that should avoid them.
“The fallacy of ‘it’s natural so it’s safe’ is truly concerning and we need to change the way we think about this,” said Majlesi.
Many drugs are based on natural compounds, and those compounds could have toxicity and potential for adverse effects just like prescription or over-the-counter drugs, he noted.
But overall, “these products are generally very safe, especially if taken for a short duration,” Majlesi said.
Majlesi advises that the best way to use most of these products is:
Discuss whether it is safe with your health care providers, especially if you have medical issues or take medications daily.
If they feel it is safe, and you want to try to improve your symptoms, consider a short course during specific times at recommended doses.
You’ll never guess how many have been killed or seriously injured in just the first year. Yet, the FDA and CDC keep pushing the shots, despite their own trial data showing they have no benefit in terms of reducing your risk of hospitalization or death.
According to a December 2021 survey of 2,840 Americans, between 217,330 and 332,608 people died from the COVID jabs in 2021.
Survey results also show that people who got the jab were more likely to know someone who experienced a health problem from COVID-19 infection, whereas those who knew someone who experienced a health problem after getting the jab were less likely to be jabbed.
Of the respondents, 34 percent knew one or more people who had experienced a significant health problem due to the COVID-19 illness, and 22 percent knew one or more people who had been injured by the shot.
Fifty-one percent of the survey respondents had been jabbed. Of those, 13 percent reported experiencing a “serious” health problem post-jab. Compare that to Pfizer’s six-month safety analysis, which claimed only 1.2 percent of trial participants experienced a serious adverse event.
In December 2022, Rasmussen Reports polled 1,000 Americans. In this poll, 34 percent reported experiencing minor side effects from the jab and seven percent reported major side effects.
That said, the most recent survey1,2—published in the peer-reviewed journal BMC Infectious Diseases—puts the death toll from the COVID jabs somewhere between 217,330 and 332,608 in 2021 alone. As noted by Steve Kirsch:3
“[We’ve] killed at least 217,000 Americans and seriously injured 33 million … in just the first year, and the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] and FDA [U.S. Food and Drug Administration] want to give you more shots … Since deaths from the vaccine were higher in 2022, most experts would estimate the all-cause mortality death toll from the COVID vaccines to be in the range of 500K to 600K.
“So the global cost of life from these vaccines is on the order of 10 to 12 million people … These [data] are consistent with the numbers I’ve been saying for a long time. It’s not a coincidence.”
Survey: Why People Did or Did Not Get the Jab
Now, the slant of this paper is kind of interesting. The primary aim of it was to “identify the factors associated by American citizens with the decision to be vaccinated against COVID-19.”
The author was curious about why 31 percent of the U.S. population had declined the jab or not completed the primary series by November 2022, nearly two years into a massively advertised “vaccination” campaign.
Calculating the proportion of fatal events from the jab was secondary. As explained by the author, Mark Skidmore,4 Ph.D., an economics professor at Michigan State University:5
“A largely unexplored factor is the degree to which serious health problems arising from the COVID-19 illness or the COVID-19 vaccines among family and friends influences the decision to be vaccinated.
“Serious illness due to COVID-19 would make vaccination more likely; the perceived benefits of avoiding COVID-19 through inoculation would be higher.
“On the other hand, observing major health issues following COVID-19 inoculation within one’s social network would heighten the perceived risks of vaccination. Previous studies have not evaluated the degree to which experiences with the disease and vaccine injury influence vaccine status.
“The main aim of this online survey of COVID-19 health experiences is to investigate the degree to which the COVID-19 disease and COVID-19 vaccine adverse events among friends and family, whether perceived or real, influenced inoculation decisions. The second aim of this work is to estimate the total number of COVID-19 vaccine-induced fatalities nationwide from the survey.”
Here’s an excerpt describing the methodology:6
“An online survey of COVID-19 health experiences was conducted. Information was collected regarding reasons for and against COVID-19 inoculations, experiences with COVID-19 illness, and COVID-19 inoculations by survey respondents and their social circles. Logit regression analyses were carried out to identify factors influencing the likelihood of being vaccinated.”
A total of 2,840 people completed the survey between Dec. 18 and Dec. 23, 2021. The mean age was 47, and the gender ratio was 51 percent women, 49 percent men. Just over half, 51 percent, had received one or more COVID jabs.
As Skidmore suspected, results showed that people who got the jab were more likely to know someone who experienced a health problem from COVID-19 infection, whereas those who knew someone who experienced a health problem after getting the jab were less likely to be jabbed.
Of the respondents, 34 percent knew one or more people who had experienced a significant health problem due to the COVID-19 illness, and 22 percent knew one or more people who had been injured by the shot. So, as noted by to the author:7
“Knowing someone who reported serious health issues either from COVID-19 or from COVID-19 vaccination are important factors for the decision to get vaccinated.”
As for the types of side effects experienced by people within the respondents’ social circles, they included (but were not limited to) the “usual suspects,” such as:
Heart and cardiovascular problems.
Severe COVID infection or other respiratory illness.
Feeling generally unwell, weak, fatigued, and out of breath for weeks.
Blood clots and stroke.
Hundreds of Thousands Killed for No Reason
“… the total number of fatalities due to COVID-19 inoculation may be as high as 278,000 (95 percent CI 217,330-332,608) when fatalities that may have occurred regardless of inoculation are removed.”
Were COVID-19 an infection with an extremely high mortality rate, perhaps high rates of death from a vaccine would be acceptable. But COVID-19 has an exceptionally low mortality rate, on par with or lower than influenza, hence the risk associated with the COVID jabs ought to be equally low.
The global cost of life from these vaccines is on the order of 10 to 12 million people.
— Steve Kirsch
As it stands, the risks of the shots are very high, while Pfizer’s own trial data, with more than 40,000 participants, show they offer no benefit in terms of your risk of hospitalization and/or death. The absolute risk reduction is so minute as to be inconsequential.8
High Rates of Side Effects
The death toll from the jabs isn’t the only disturbing part of this paper, though. Skidmore’s findings also suggest side effects from the jab may be more common than previously suspected.
As mentioned, 51 percent of the respondents had been jabbed. Of those, 15 percent reported experiencing a new health problem post-jab and 13 percent deemed it “serious.” Compare that to Pfizer’s six-month safety analysis,9 which claimed only 1.2 percent of trial participants reported a serious adverse event.
Now, as suggested by Kirsch,10 “we need to discount that by a factor of two because people report less severe adverse events as adverse events.” Still, that means serious adverse events from the jab are five times higher than what Pfizer reported.
“This is why the FDA never does after-market surveys on the drugs it approves. Because reality hurts,” Kirsch writes.11 “It is the FDA that should have discovered this before Mark Skidmore. The FDA is asleep at the wheel and they just believe everything the drug companies tell them, hook, line, and sinker. This is a major miss. Why aren’t they doing surveys like this to see if the reality matches the study?”
More Side Effect Rate Comparisons
For additional comparison, here are the findings of several other investigations:
Rasmussen Reports12: In December 2022, Rasmussen Reports polled 1,000 Americans. In this poll—taken one year after Skidmore’s survey—34 percent reported experiencing minor side effects from the jab and seven percent reported major side effects.
CDC’s V-Safe data13: In October 2022, ICAN [Informed Consent Action Network] obtained the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s V-Safe data. This is a voluntary program to monitor adverse vaccine reactions. Of the 10.1 million COVID jab recipients who used the app, 7.7 percent had to seek medical care post-jab.
Kirsch-funded survey14: A June 2022 U.S. survey by the market research company Pollfish found that 16.3 percent of COVID jabbed respondents experienced an injury, and 9.7 percent required medical care.
The graphic below, which visually compares Skidmore’s findings to the findings of the Rasmussen, V-Safe, and Pollfish surveys, was created by InfoGame on Substack.15 As noted by InfoGame:
“Skidmore’s article serves as another sign that the rate of COVID-19 side effects is extremely high and that the COVID-19 vaccines are an unprecedently risky medical product.”
Menstrual Irregularities Are Common Post-Jab
While we’re on the topic of reported side effects, several surveys have also focused on the frequency of abnormal menses in women who got the jab, which could be indicative of reproductive harm. For example:
A British survey published in early December 2021 found 20 percent of women experienced menstrual disturbances following their jab.16
A study published in Science Advances in mid-July 2022 found 66 percent of “fully vaccinated” postmenopausal women experienced abnormal breakthrough bleeding. In total, 42.1 percent reported heavier menstrual flow post-jab (this included women of all ages, as well as transgenders on hormone treatments).17
An Italian peer-reviewed study published in March 2022 found that “50-60 percent of reproductive-age women who received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine reported menstrual cycle irregularities, regardless of the type of administered vaccine.” After the second dose, abnormal menses were reported by 60 percent to 70 percent.18
People in High Places Seek Retraction
Not surprisingly, people in high places are already trying to force a retraction of the paper. A special notice from the editor, dated just two days post-publication, states:
“Readers are alerted that the conclusions of this paper are subject to criticisms that are being considered by editors. Specifically, that the claims are unsubstantiated and that there are questions about the quality of the peer review.”
As noted by Kirsch:19
“They are actively trying to get the paper retracted because it destroys the narrative. I’m certain they will succeed because journals are under intense pressure to censor any anti-narrative paper. The problem is that Mark’s survey was entirely consistent with my surveys.
“If they want to have the paper retracted they need to show us THEIR surveys. But of course, they don’t have any surveys because they are too afraid of the results.
“So they will use hand-waving arguments like “I don’t like the methodology” or some nonsense like that instead of gathering their own data. They will NEVER show us survey data that supports their narrative because it isn’t there.
“That’s why there are no success anecdotes. NOBODY can give me the name of a U.S. geriatric practice where all-cause deaths plummeted after the vaccines rolled out. In every case, they went the wrong way. The narrative is unraveling at an accelerated pace but the medical community is still fighting the truth.”

Nature Is Free Medicine for Many Chronic Diseases, 1 Way Enhances Healing Effects
If you don’t know where to go on vacation, there is no harm in getting in touch with nature. Not only does it relieve stress, but it may also help reduce the need for prescription medications for conditions like high blood pressure and asthma. It’s best to take off your shoes and step on the grass with your bare feet—you may gain some unexpected benefits.
Green Space Is Free Medicine, Can Improve Many Chronic Diseases
Do you like green spaces? The British Medical Journal published a two-year study in Finland that revealed that frequent visits to green spaces such as forests, gardens, parks, and meadows can help people reduce the use of prescription medication for depression, insomnia, high blood pressure, and asthma. These medicines are mainly used to treat common and potentially serious health problems.
The study analyzed about 7,300 people, and the results found that compared with those who visited green spaces less than once a week, those who visited green spaces three to four times a week were 33 percent less likely to use psychotropic medication, 36 percent less likely to use antihypertensive medication, and 26 percent less likely to use asthma medication.
Exposure to natural environments is widely believed to be beneficial for human health, and this study actually provides another piece of evidence. Dr. Gyaltsen Lobsang, a preventive medicine expert and director of Dr. Lobsang Preventive Medicare Clinic, said that he often encourages people to go into the forest; this advice is even included in his “prescription” because nature has so many health benefits to offer.
Plants release a lot of oxygen and produce a lot of bioactive substances during photosynthesis, which helps you resist oxidation and reduce chronic inflammation.
Many people suffer from chronic inflammatory conditions. When the cells in the body do not get enough oxygen, the hypoxic cells will emit “reactive oxygen species,” which can damage cells and organs, resulting in body oxidation and chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation will then lead to weakened immunity, making it difficult for the body to fight against foreign viruses and bacteria.
Hypoxemia (insufficient oxygen in the body) can be caused by environmental, physiological, and pathological factors. Lobsang pointed out that symptoms such as muscle stiffness, poor sleep, and dizziness may indicate a lack of oxygen in the body.
2. Boost immunity and prevent cancer
People can also breathe in phytoncides when they are in green spaces, especially forests. Phytoncides, also known as “exterminators of the plant,” are chemicals that plants release into the air with antimicrobial properties to protect themselves from insects.
A study found that the activity of natural killer (NK) cells in the body increased by about 50 percent after people breathed in phytoncides while walking in nature. These cells can kill tumor cells and virus-infected cells in the body.
Lobsang believes that the air in the forest can help cleanse the lungs. Therefore, he will ask patients, especially lung cancer patients, to get in touch with nature, preferably in areas with forests, at least two to three times a month.
4. Relieve stress, improve mood, and regulate autonomic nervous system
A natural environment filled with plants promotes the relaxation of the body and mind. The director of Lohasiinfra Clinic in Taiwan, Shih-Heng Chang pointed out that there are more sounds in the forest than at the seaside, such as the chirping of insects and birds, and the sound of the wind. These sounds are called white noise, and they can block out real noise, helping to relieve stress, and are more relaxing than total silence.
Studies have also found that forest landscapes can reduce psychological stress and mental fatigue, and induce positive emotions, thereby improving anxiety, depression, and anger. This has preventive and therapeutic effects on depression. At the same time, forest bathing also helps to reduce stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol, thus relieving people’s stress.
Stress is also closely related to autonomic nervous system disorders; forest bathing can increase the activity of the parasympathetic nerves and reduce the activity of the sympathetic nerves, allowing the autonomic nervous system to return to a stable and balanced state. Consequently, sleep quality can also be improved.
5. Lower blood pressure and manage diabetes
Studies have found that the forest environment can effectively lower blood pressure, reduce pulse rate, and improve cardiac-pulmonary and metabolic functions, which can help improve the quality of life of pre-hypertensive or hypertensive patients.
Speculated reasons why forests may reduce blood pressure include the positive effects of phytoncides on the body, and the modulating effect of the forest environment on the autonomic nervous system.
Walking in a forest environment increases adiponectin, which helps lower blood glucose levels in diabetic patients. High levels of adiponectin have been linked to resistance to diabetes, weight loss, and the prevention of atherosclerosis.
5. Manage ADHD and improve concentration
In addition to improving concentration in the general population, natural environments can also enhance attention in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). A walk in the park is sufficient to elevate concentration in children with ADHD.
Lobsang also found in his clinical treatment that the symptoms of 80 to 90 percent of children with ADHD or autism can be gradually improved when the children are exposed to nature.
Lobsang believes that plants are very effective in purifying the air, saying that “plants are the best air purifiers.” He pointed out that many studies have found that simply having a lot of plants (such as sansevieria) indoors can help clean the air.
7. Improve eye health
Looking at a green environment after intense eye use can relax the eyes. Chang explained that green light’s wavelength can relax the eye muscles. The eyes will directly affect the brain, and the discomfort of the eyes will cause pain in the head. Computer vision syndrome refers to the discomfort in the eyes caused by prolonged viewing of the computer, which will extend to the brain, resulting in symptoms such as headache and nausea.
Take off Your Shoes and Perform ‘Earthing’ to Increase Natural Healing Power
When walking into green spaces, it is best to take off your shoes if possible, and step barefoot on grass, dirt, and sand to perform “earthing,” as doing so allows you to receive nature’s medicine—electrons from the Earth’s surface.
Scientist Clint Ober discovered the health benefits of earthing by accident. In his book “Earthing,” co-authored with Dr. Stephen Sinatra and others, it is stated that people live on an electrified planet and live an electrified life—the heart, brain, muscles, nervous system, and immune system are all dynamic electric circuits. The purpose of earthing is to connect the weak current on the surface of the earth with the physiological current of the human botos to restore the body’s electrical balance.
Numerous studies have now documented the many benefits of going barefoot on the ground, including reduced chronic inflammation, pain and stress, improved blood flow, vitality and sleep, enhanced wound healing, and the prevention and treatment of autoimmune diseases.
A case study (pdf) by the International Academy of Clinical Thermography mentioned that an 85-year-old man with severe inflammation and chronic pain woke up stiff and sore every day, and his pain completely disappeared after four weeks of earthing therapy.
To maximize the benefits of performing earthing to the body, going barefoot for as little as 30 or 40 minutes daily can significantly reduce pain and stress.
Lobsang said that the body is the structure of energy, and earthing can not only release bad energy from the body, but also massage the soles of the feet at the same time. There are many acupoints on the soles of the feet, such as the Yong Quan acupoint, which is an excellent acupoint for relieving stress, stabilizing emotions, and improving sleep. Additionally, the stimulation of the sole muscles can promote microcirculation.
Lobstang brings his patients to places with clean grass for earthing. In particular, grass that has been exposed to the sun is best. However, people with wounds on the soles of the feet, especially diabetics, have to be careful; they should avoid earthing when there are wounds on the soles of the feet.
In addition, traditional Chinese medicine believes in the concept of the unity of man and nature, and earthing is in line with the concept. Wu Kuo-pin, superintendent of Taiwan Xinyitang Heart Clinic, said that the ground is a part of the Earth (in the Five Elements); the Earth element is associated with the spleen and stomach, and the spleen and stomach are part of the digestive system in traditional Chinese medicine. People can strengthen their spleen and stomach by performing earthing and absorbing the qi of the Earth element. The immune system will improve as the function of the spleen and stomach improves.
Kuo-pin once heard of a case in which a cancer patient recovered from cancer by walking barefoot in the mountains. He emphasized that the energies of the human body, the Earth, and the universe are inherently interconnected. Stepping on the ground with bare feet can adjust the energy of the body, which is beneficial to overall well-being.
“We have good news! We are back on the docket!” the tweet read. “SCOTUS has updated our motion for reconsideration and has set a conference date of 2/17, just two weeks from Friday!…” -Brunson Brothers tweet
[Breaking Christian News] The case brought by Utah brothers Raland and Loy Brunson—(Raland Brunson v. Alma Adams) had been making its way through the US court system. After the US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) initially agreed to hear the case, it was rejected without explanation on January 9th, of this year. (Screengrab image)
However, on February 1st, the Brunson Brothers shared on Twitter that the case was back on:
“We have good news! We are back on the docket!” the tweet read. “SCOTUS has updated our motion for reconsideration and has set a conference date of 2/17, just two weeks from Friday! We told you we were ready for anything, we are still in the fight. Keep the prayers coming!”
The Brunson v. Adams case, if won, would essentially reverse the presidential results of the 2020 election.
On Raland Brunson’s website a description reads:
THE LAWSUIT Both lawsuits include defendants …Biden, Harris, former V.P. Pence and 385 members of congress for breaking their oath of office by voting AGAINST the proposition (that came from members of congress) to investigate the claims that there were enemies of the constitution who successfully rigged the election.
BOTH LAWSUITS ARE ABOUT THE DEFENDANTS BREAKING THEIR OATH OF OFFICE “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic…”
THE QUESTION How can you support, and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign, and domestic? Answer: You investigate. If there are claims that there is a threat, even if you don’t believe there is a threat, you investigate. How else can you determine if there is a threat unless you investigate? You can’t. Were there claims of a threat to the Constitution? Yes. Where did these serious claims come from? 100 members of Congress. What was the threat? That there were enemies of the Constitution who successfully rigged the 2020 election. Is this lawsuit about a rigged election? No, it’s about the members of Congress who voted AGAINST the investigation thereby thwarting the investigation. Was this a clear violation of their oath? YES.
THE RELIEF THAT LOY AND RALAND ARE SEEKING That defendants be permanently removed from office, and not allowed to hold a public office again.
@BrunsonSCOTUS tweeted, “…strength in numbers is such an empowering tool that We the People can use to our advantage, so come on over to our new website http://brunsonbrothers.com as we continue to grow this historic movement! We feel we are on a divine mission, and the inspiration this has brought to people along with some of the breaks we’ve caught along the way proves that any “average” American can make a world of difference. All it takes is a vision, a plan, and most importantly faith and prayer.” Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
On their Twitter account, the brothers added, “We truly feel that somehow, someway, all we have done in our lives has been for a purpose. We weren’t quite sure what that purpose was, until now…”

The incredibly gifted filmmaker Mikki Willis has just provided us all with the belated Christmas Present which so many have been craving—a well-edited summary of his wisdom and insight from decades of involvement in movements focused on social change.
Yesterday, Jill, myself, and Drs. Kat Lindley and Ryan Cole were in London for interviews with various GB News personalities, including Nigel Farage! Great fun, and we all really enjoy working with the highly professional GB News production team and staff. For those not aware, Nigel’s prime-time news and commentary show routinely blows away the BBC [British Broadcasting Corporation] for viewership including views on the video clips that are produced and distributed.
Today, our little band of fellow medical Truth Tellers all traveled to Stockholm for a Pandemic (Plandemic?) Strategies meeting to be held over the next few days. Stay tuned for more updates from our adventures here in Sweden!
As most of your know by now, the globalists seem to be having a few setbacks lately. Ms. Arden, the current leader of the WEF [World Economic Forum] client state previously known as New Zealand, has decided to step down from that posting, and there are apparently fewer “A-list” Overlords in attendance this year.
Setting aside the snark for a moment (well, maybe not completely), back in the real world inhabited by humans (as opposed to the Lizard people), the incredibly gifted filmmaker Mikki Willis has just provided us all with the belated Christmas Present which so many have been craving—a well-edited Rumble video summary of his wisdom and insight from decades of involvement in movements focused on social change, and in particular the forces and Fifth Generation Warfare strategies that are repeatedly deployed against social movements at the stage which we seem to be approaching. Unfortunately, Rumble is blocked in SOME European Union countries, so hopefully, this Substack can penetrate that firewall for those unfortunate souls who live behind the blue curtain with gold stars.
Mikki has graciously offered to serve as a guest author/artist for today’s Substack video essay (posted at the top of this essay). I suspect that you will find his wisdom and counsel as valuable as I have, and strongly encourage coming back to this, again and again, to refresh and meditate on his teaching. I am far from becoming a modern Bodhisattva and often fail in my efforts to be better than my base instincts, but with Mikki’s help, perhaps all of us may be able to “nudge” ourselves a bit closer to fulfilling our individual and collective potential.
I hope the following brief bio will help introduce you to my colleague and valued friend Mikki Willis. A father, husband, artist, truth warrior, and freedom fighter of the highest caliber. I hope you find the appended video that Mikki and his team at Elevate have produced.
Best-selling author/Investigative filmmaker Mikki Willis is respected globally for exposing corruption at the highest levels. His filmmaking is accredited for helping to win major lawsuits against the most powerful forces of Big Media. His latest work, Plandemic, is the most seen and censored documentary series in history. The first PLANDEMIC, a 26-minute documentary, has been seen by over one billion people worldwide, setting a historic record. The premiere of PLANDEMIC 2: INDOCTORNATION set streaming records with 2 million viewers attending the global livestream. The series is accredited for being first to warn the world of the crimes against humanity that are now being brought to light. Plandemic 3: The Great Awakening, premieres globally 6/3/23.
They tried to bury us. They did not know we were seeds.
I’ve been a human rights activist for almost 20 years. As a documentary filmmaker, I’ve been on the front lines of many of our nation’s biggest scandals and protests.
From that perspective, I’ve been an eyewitness to the rise and fall of numerous people-powered movements. Nearly every organized resistance I’ve been a part of has ended just inches from victory for the same critical mistake … infighting. When members of the same group turn against each other. It often begins with whispers about the most prominent spokespeople of the cause. These rumors typically sound like “I hear John is controlled opposition” or “some people are saying Jane is compromised.”
While the use of infiltrators and agitators is a very real thing, I’ve yet to experience one scenario where such a label was accurately applied, and suspiciously, these labels are always branded on the people who are making the most progress. With the degradation of their reputation, goes their contribution to your life.
Prior to social media, people actually sat down to dialog through their differences. Today, without solid evidence or sufficient inquiry, we go directly to our keyboards to vent our suspicions. Even after the rumor is proven false or simply fades away, some level of doubt and division always remains. This is all by design. “Part of what allowed so many people to walk away from Assange was some of the MeToo allegations that had surfaced and that were ultimately discredited, but stuck in people’s minds.”
The voices of propaganda are masterful at this game. They knowingly run a false story, then retract it, knowing the lie will reach millions, but very few will see the correction.
“Amy Coney Barrett’s religious faith is being called into question again. She belongs to this People of Praise group, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled a hate group.”
(THE NEXT DAY)
“When I stated that People of Praise had been deemed a hate group, I just got them mixed up with another group. I conflated them. Ah, okay, that happens. You know, it’s easy to do.”
In the words of former CIA director William Casey. “We’ll know our disinformation campaign is complete when everything the American public believes is false.” The planting of divisive rumors is one of the most common tactics used in psychological warfare. As the lies bloom, like worker bees, well-intended citizens pollinate the masses with poisonous disinformation. What the gossiping bees fail to realize is that they themselves are doing the work of controlled opposition. They are literally, unwittingly working on behalf of the very forces they believe they are resisting. Again, all of this is by design.
While we’ve all been distracted by the latest trends and tragedies, everything that has influence on our behavior has been infiltrated by an agenda to control our thoughts. Whether their goal is to make us purchase a product, vote for a political party, or submit to experimental inoculations, there are forces at work who understand the functionalities of your mind far better than you do. Their goal is total control. But because they are the few and we are the many, they can only achieve total control through the age-old tactic of divide and conquer.
“You’re either with them or with us.”
Never before have we been so divided. Divided by politics, religion, nation, state, race, class, gender, and now vaccine status.
To better understand how we got here, consider these three quotes from The Art of War by Sun Tzu:
“The Supreme Art of War is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”
“Victorious warriors win first, and then go to war.”
“The secret lies in confusing the enemy so that he cannot fathom our real intent.”
Though Sun Tzu, lived over 2500 years ago, his work remains at the heart of our CIA, as well as the Chinese Communist Party’s strategy today. It’s no coincidence that around the same era as Sun Tzu, the words “United We Stand, Divided We Fall” were first recorded. It is Unity that will save our communities.
“As you see in the audience, Muslims, Christians, Jewish community, Democrats, Republicans, white, black, everyone all in between. This is the example of what you get when you choose to attack all members of the human family.” Our greatest power is our numbers. Hence, the relentless effort to shatter us into broken fragments.
As their agendas are being exposed, the dividers will stop at nothing to cover their crimes against humanity. They have bunkers. All we have is each other. The good news is, that’s all we need. Though we are intrinsically interconnected, our minds are being wired to obsess over our differences. Contrary to social indoctrination, we do not have to be ideologically aligned to stand together. We don’t even have to like each other.
There is only one thing that we must agree on.
That freedom is our birthright.
Now is the time to let go of whatever it is you’re holding on to that keeps you divided from your friends, family, and fellow humans. Rise above all the micro dramas and distractions to see that a much bigger story is unfolding. Swallow your pride. Humble yourself. Let it go. I’m not suggesting that we look the other way when someone is clearly thwarting our forward momentum. There are people who deserve to be called out by name, especially those who are undermining our trust in each other. But even then, we should remember that there is a human life being affected by our words. We’ve been so conditioned to believe we are powerless that we’ve become careless with our power.
Like toddlers with loaded guns. How many times do we need to shoot our own foot till we realize that the power is in our hands?
The only thing that can stop us at this point … is us.
We’ve all been lied to, scammed, fooled, tricked, conned, and coerced. Yes, it sucks. But here we are, wiser and stronger than we were just three years ago. This is the moment for us to activate our innate ability to create solutions that can only happen through the awareness of symbiosis defined as a mutually beneficial relationship between different groups. All of life depends on relationships. Every living thing is in communication from the stars, to the planets, the earth, the plants, the elements, the insects, the animals, the humans, and every cell within us. Real change out there, begins with real change inside.
The question is: How bad does it have to get before we’re willing to change?

Meditation, with its countless benefits, is our tool to explore the Way. Jesus said in the Dialogue of the Savior, left out of the Bible, “When I came among humanity, I opened the door to the Way. I showed you the path that you must follow. You will find it within yourselves.” And Buddha said six hundred years earlier, “Before you set foot on the path, master yourself.” Krishna said, around 3500 BC, ” Those find the Way are those who have love and forgiveness in the hearts, and Lao Tzu said in 5oo BC, “the Way is empty, the Way is full. There is no Way to describe what it is. Find it within yourselves.”
Meditation has been around for thousands of years and is based on Hindu Scripture, as a religious practice. Buddha said “Meditation brings wisdom; lack of mediation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.”
It is even mentioned in the Bible, Psalm 1:1-2, “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; (2) but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.”
In Joshua 1: 8 states “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it.”
The Acts of Peter XXI, also omitted from the bible, “Give ear; withdraw your souls from all that appears but is not truly real; close these eyes of yours, close your ears, withdraw from actions that are outwardly seen; and you shall know the reality of Christ and the whole secret of your salvation.” In Matthew 6:6 ” But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”
But what is left out is how to pray or meditate. Perhaps Jesus’ message in the Gospel of Thomas can assist in our journey of seeking the truth. In the Gospel of Thomas, (48) Jesus said, “If two make peace with each other in this one house, they will say to the mountain, ‘Move Away,’ and it will move away.” The one house is the body, and the two are mind and spirit. A very similar saying in (106) Jesus said, “When you make the two one, you will become the sons of man, and when you say, ‘Mountain, move away,’ it will move away.”
The two are mind and spirit, thought and emotion. From a spiritual perspective, Meditation is our Gateway, our connection to Universal Intelligence. Jesus was telling us how in the Gospel of Thomas, omitted from the bible. When we can make our thoughts and emotions one, we will be transformed and will able to move mountains.
We all have a divine power within. It is up to each of us to look within, know ourselves and understand our purpose. Our tool is meditation, contemplation, prayer and seeking the truth. This video may provide additional insight for those seeking the truth.
Kirill Timoshenko has resigned as deputy head of Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky’s office, after the head of state pledged to shake up the government.
The reshuffle, which the president announced in his daily video address on Tuesday morning, will affect officials “on different levels, in ministries and other bodies of central and provincial authority, and law enforcement.”
Timoshenko is the most senior official whose removal from office has been confirmed so far. He published his signed resignation letter on social media in a farewell post.
Some Ukrainian news outlets have said he will be replaced with Aleksey Kuleba, head of the Kiev Region, and that Timoshenko may be put in charge of a provincial administration.
Another senior official heading for the exit is Deputy Prosecutor General Aleksey Simonenko, according to reports. Earlier this month he sparked outrage by spending the New Year holidays in Spain.
Aside from the bad optics of relaxing at a foreign resort during wartime, the trip raised suspicions of corruption, as Simonenko allegedly used a car that belongs to a wealthy businessman, and was accompanied by a bodyguard employed by the car’s owner.
Following the incident, the Ukrainian National Security Council issued an order banning officials from crossing the national border unless they are on state business.
Simonenko’s resignation was officially confirmed by Zelensky’s office later in the day.

Meanwhile, Defense Minister Aleksey Reznikov was apparently spared on Monday, after the Ukrainian parliament declined to take action against him over a graft scandal.
A media investigation claimed on Saturday that the ministry was buying food supplies worth hundreds of millions of dollars for troops, at prices that were several times higher than in Ukrainian retail chains.
Reznikov told lawmakers that the documents cited in the investigation were inaccurate, and that some prices were inflated due to a “technical error”. Other items legitimately included costs that retail prices do not, he claimed, arguing that the comparison was not valid.
Some members of parliament accepted the minister’s explanations, but the Ukrainian anti-corruption body NABU continues to investigate the graft allegations.
Last week, NABU indicted Andrey Kobolev, the former CEO of state-owned energy company Naftogaz. In 2018, he awarded himself a $10 million bonus for achievements in legal battles with Russia’s Gazprom.
NABU alleges that Kobolev overstated the financial benefit that he and other executives secured for the Ukrainian company, and consequently took unreasonably high level of compensation.

Divine Intervention at Work?
There seems to a divine intervention that is happening around the world and all at once. There is a vibrating constant energetic motion within all things, we can refer to Universal Intelligence, or God or even the Field. Scientist have proven there is a electromagnetic field living in everything in the universe. The late Dr. Valerie V. Hunt, scientist, author, lecturer and Professor Emeritus of Physiological Science at the University of California, confirmed electromagnetic energy is the most plentiful constant energy of our universe. It is a part of all structures living and dead, including the atmosphere. We create electromagnetic energies in the atoms of our living cells, which we enhance by the reaction with the atmospheric energy field. We know this expanded energy field as the human aura. Without this biofield life would not exist and there would be only an inner biochemical mix. Dr. Hunt was involved in research that is uncovering the various dimensions involved in the bioenergetic transactions between humans and the environment as they relate to human behaviors, emotions, health, illness, and disease, as well as scientifically quantifying the human aura and the levels of consciousness it contains. What does that mean?
Dr. Joe Dispenza, is a researcher who healed himself after breaking 6 vertebrae in his back after being told he would never walk again. Through meditation, visualizations and his belief system, after nine and a half weeks after the accident, he got up and walked, without having any body cast or any surgeries.
So how do we work with the field? We get to know ourselves. The most demanding part of self awareness is the mind must be known to itself. If the mind knows itself then the most important aspect of of self awareness has occurred as consciousness is the microcosm of the Oneness. In other words, the macrocosmic intelligence, the field, which guides the birth and processes of the universe is reflected on a microcosmic scale in each of us. As energetic beings, we are radiating positive and negative energy by our thoughts, emotions and actions, creating our reality with all its distortions and confusion.
To know yourself is the same message Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Krishna and many others have been trying to tell us through the centuries. Lao Tzu tells us “Wisdom come from knowing oneself. He who knows himself is enlightened”. In the dialogue of the Savior Jesus said “Those who have truly found the Self within recognized that it exists everywhere.” Buddha added, “Everyone has recognized the self-ones essential nature. But few have realized it.”
Our emotions are part of the field as we create our new world. We all have the divine gift of discernment, the act or process of exhibiting keen insight and good judgment. In its broadest sense, discernment is closely related to wisdom as an expression of God. Discernment alone can bring about a sense of balance between our physical and metaphysical worlds. We are all part of this creation, know yourself and realize we are the divine intervention.
