Hi Fred In case you see this post... where did your thought come in? Is it just random or is it related to the thread? I wondered if you thought John peterson is John Alexander? But I looked up John Alexander ....

I saw a comment that really speaks to me about the shared belief system informing secrecy on this interview by John Alexander:

Interesting that the implicit acceptance that certain issues have to be secret to protect the nation leads to a disconnect with Constitutional chain of command procedures. A basic belief in the need for secrecy (which is normal in the military in order to save the Republic and democracy) becomes such an all-powerful, guiding principle that - in an out of control state- it can imperil democracy, especially when dealing with subject matters that many people involved would initially prefer to avoid because they are personally uncomfortable and social taboos. However (because of their need to know and because of what they can contribute to various projects whilst not personally choosing to get into this) some persons in military and intelligence are forced to deal with the discomforting issue. Then, the shared belief in secrecy as the main, implicit, group-unifying belief becomes the be-all/end-all, sacrosanct reason behind the personal meaningful sense to participate in a particular secret UFO operation. We need to think "human psychology" before judging those handling the secrets

Hiya Maggie, my thought/observation came from your previous post. There's a good clutch of names that tend to jump out at me, with Col. John Alexander and company being right there at the top.

[offtopic]Magic: What If It Was Real?

By John B. Alexander, Ph.D.

Las Vegas is home to many magicians, most of whom are hard core illusionists. Concentrating on sleight of hand, misdirection, and other tricks of professional conjurers, they ply their trade and compete for bookings. But what if, just maybe, sometimes the magic was real? That is exactly what a small eclectic group, comprised mostly of entertainers who regularly engage in mystifying performances, set out to explore with unmapped territory in an innovative meeting titled PSI Posium....

Oh, I admit I did not even look at the author name closely on that article (I have "thread attention deficit disorder").
I appreciate your comment. If one's most beloved mistress is Secrecy, you have to wonder at all the various ways misdirection will be employed in her honor....

I listened to a free hour workshop which happens every first Wednesday from Sonia Barrett. She calls them Reality Wednesday.

Any one can register for them.
http://www.therealsoniabarrett.com/events/free-teleconference

This one was really pertinent to me. She initailly brought up that we each create the rules about, actually Laws about our reality. One she initially addressed is the constraint we place on our flow as income or the means we have....a BIG one. Two others she mentioned are relationships and body. She also included mind but the mind is involved in everything.

To the extent I know I am "god" in my reality, I know I create the rules in my reality. I have been contemplating how I really don't KNOW because I do the very thing she mentioned...give some external reason why I have what I have in my "budget" limitations. She mentioned a couple of other salient points

Embracing that "I am" the law giver of my reality need not create blame and shame as what I create makes sense at any time. The thing is to refresh the laws.

She emphasized how little time we spend contemplating "just what are the laws I hold for myself?" She talked about the focus" out there' that distracts from inner research.

She talked in terms of layers where we can have various level of authority placed in "other" law givers based on how fixed some laws have become. Most started so long long ago in our experience and we have particular blind spots.

I am putting together for myself the connection between this fact that yes, I do create my own rulers. I have my own fence. I have my compartments of whole sets that buttress each other.

I became so excited by this mantra tonight... "I am the law giver for my own life" and I wanted to put some music on. That means my computer. My router was DOWN. I had no connection. I called a phone tech and we tried to reset the router. It seemed to not be possible...meaning new router according to the tech Chad....

I accepted that I created the no internet. I laughed a lot. I have been feeling my internet distractions and feel a bit at a loss as to how to motivate me to get off when on hehe. My past days included a binge of "Altered Carbon" which despite my interest, sank my spirits. Then JUST while I am listening on the phone to "I create and that's the way it is", I turned the router off.

One last try to reset the factory settings seemed to fail. However while contemplating the creation of internet distractions, I went one last time to push buttons on the router. Then I realized I never turned the router on again after resetting. The internet connection now works for me again. I needed to reset a pass key and called Chad back because it was a bit difficult. Now its back and secure.

OK so here I am on the internet but I am here to help myself create new laws via recording two plans I thought to use while off the internet earlier.

1. Embrace how falling in love with myself as my law giver is being awed by my ability to write and rewrite all codes and rules. The love for ME is a powerful state. I reroute the submissions to the unconscious programming by CONSCIOUSLY being in a honey moon where I give MYSELF what is loving feeling . It is a lover who will turn off the broadcast when I feel like I am sucked in and cannot disengage.

2. Spend time on discovery of the laws I have on my books. One I can observe is that my rules of money, relationships and my even body are all entangled. There is a definite inner pattern of disappointment and feeling constricted under EVERYTHING and what is THAT about? I also plan to give these recognized ones over writes as they come around rather than ignore this opportunity by amnesia.

3. Apply what I know about how I still am embracing a trap of feeling victim as a main LAW. It surfaces in feeling overwhelmed and tired and wishing to escape... escape where? How can I escape my self haha. That is why I am making a solid committment that in the next days, I will make my main contemplation.. I am the rule maker and the rule breaker. I am the book of rules and a big eraser. I am the alchemist of my own lab.

I am reminded of Tobia Lars' process of energy alchemy that I am able to use about my body but so far have not extended well to all areas like money and relationships.

Off Topic
1. I Am the Energy Sufficient unto My Self.

'Mommy' and 'Daddy' (God- Source) are directly feeding me w/ the unlimited energy of the Uni - Verse.

2.At the Center of each of my Chakras is a zero point/ singularity that literally infuses, feeds me the unlimited energy of the Source Field, God, The UniVerse. FACT.

1. I Am the 'Germinator' , as things begin I Am the Inceptor and can 'order it' the way I want.

2. AnFang - to capture, to Begin, to Start....to capture as well....capture the moment.

3. YOU have choice when starting new Avenues of doing, Business, work or relationships.

'Aha, I can see and sow seeds of how I would like this to be.'

Feel the space of being the 'decider'....just breathe into it...if there's some uncomfortableness w/ it just 'be' with that..breathe through it...allow it.

You are asking for more 'mastery', i.e. decider, creator, master of your own destiny....

this is part of it...
(Toabia Lars)


I am the energy sufficient unto myself.
Each of my energy centers is plugged directly into the Source Field.
I draw the energy to accomplish my freedom from my old programs of hierarchy (who has by rights and who is lacking) and where I wallow in relationships with people and money that look unequal.
My mud hole(y) is so I may choose to walk away
Not necessarily physical
I may energetically change the charge

My Egoic sense of needing acknowledgment from the outside,
a supply that demonstrates what I am needing from some outside means,
any outside reflection of need is amenable to alchemizing.

If I feel aversion in observing what I create it is not necessary to avoid or to pursue.
I can use the clue to look at the underlying program
I can get in touch with the energy of sadness, disappointment, even their counterpoints of happiness and satisfaction to see where I gave my power
My power is in relationship to myself and my higher SELF
Though I still need and still have programs and still have dissonance

Even though I am still feeling lonely as if I have to make a world where I can feel free, abundant, creative and equal because I am not yet feeling these in me

SO WHAT?
I can reclaim all the power

I have been noticing the back lash recently concerning entheogens like Ayahuasca. Lisa Renee at Energetic Synthesis and Bernhard Guenther are two who state we should avoid them on the "ascension path". IMO it is the "subtle sludge" (my words) encountered when taking these substances that could be sticky. I had my own experiences of using plant medicines and I have my own opinions.

It is natural IMO that I have moved out of attraction to that experience. I would not have a clue about its usefulness for others. HOWEVER, I trust the older sources more than the present day (IMO watered down and distorted) lectures about the subtle realms and our own responsibilities. It is potentially dangerous to walk in the jungle, in the high mountains and into the seas? What a WOW and revelation to go there if one has the right equipment.

I know there has also been a back lash against "theosophy" too but how will one know unless hearing these teachers?

IMO the Seth Material is the most astounding body of information, no matter where it arose. Jane Roberts was the channel for the material. I always wondered about Jane herself. She is an enigma to me. I was so happy to find this documentary.

I have been thinking about friendship today as its Valentine's day. Aside from the commercialism and perhaps the original attribution to a Catholic martyr, today is celebrating relationship and IMO friendship is ideal as a model for relationships that are deeper than any differences. IMO being a friend means a highly altruistic and kind love. I appreciate the opportunity to celebrate love.

I have been thinking about how very many many "people" live around me....from the tiniest microbe ranging larger and larger all having a life. Then there IMo are real people in other invisible to me (due to size or frequency) realms all also alive and having their existence. We don't usually have any problems. I feel friendly towards them all. That means I respect them and know some, not others. That there may be incompatible beings to me is clear. I am certain I am incompatible to many hehe.

There are copperheads in my neighborhood of the mountain woods and creek. I walk in their world if we say that the outdoors is where they live and I "live" in a house and I WANT to communicate a boundary asking that they alert me and I will not step on one. I will not be bitten and the snake left to carry on as I pass which is win win for both. But IF I had the intention to kill one, am I not emanating this broadcast? Why would it let me know it is near? It would likely try to hide And IF I wasn't looking and was bitten by this hiding one, it would not IMO say anything was bad about the snake.

I cannot help but think that when people use ayahausca, it is not simply that negative entities are just waiting to attack. I may be foolish but I don't think the construct of attachment is "attack" which comes form the general 'war mongering" we call reality. Yes, we sure do get attached in so many ways and at so may levels. Walk in Plum Creek and get leaches when you have bare legs (a child hood horror from a book by Laura Ingles Wilder). "Fall in love" and get codependent with a narcissist if not well grounded in self love, if unfulfilled by one's inner creativity go to school to get a really good job and get attached to money and/or power. One can attach to anything and any one imaginable.

Gosh there are ways to attach to a dark night of isolation and loneliness or attached to an ecstatic joy seeking religion and showing off one's expertise or chill or being a "rebel" outsider or partying or maybe a drug or two. Sex and/or romance or rock and role or paranoia or being a social success, even trying to be free of attachment as a narcissist are all states of being attached. That is not to say we should not partake and try patterns but we need to know who adopted whom as an attachment? IMO most people who are shrill about what we Should avoid were unhappy about their choices of patterns.

these "patterns" look like people places and things. I think we attach the pattern from "others". It is maintained by our energy. Like a 50 pound weight, a heavy pattern is triring. The metaphor here is cleaning house of un-needed and desired items we must keep up. Obviously we "keep" what we think we need. Hoarders think they need EVERYTHING and look at that mess!

I may be naive but seriously It seems the only problem is not realizing that we don't really need the patterns.

I think WE attach the "entities" we carry because there is some level of our expectation processing that believes these forms add to us and our stature. IMO we attach all these bits of energetic in physical or informational form and make a pattern that we expect will be a life worth living. Do we know we are doing all that? Not until we do know.

This may seem radical but I think it is just as valid in duality as the idea that entities are seeking to attack us.
I am really interested in friendship in a multiversal way.

I found this today so sharing FYI.

Off Topic
Adam Crabtree is a founding faculty member of the Centre for Training in Psychotherapy in Toronto, where he is a lecturer, seminar leader, psychotherapy group facilitator, and psychotherapy practice supervisor.

Adam Crabtree’s first book, published in 1985, is titled Multiple Man: Explorations in Possession and Multiple Personality. He has written books on hypnosis, trance states in everyday life, and dissociation, pathological and normal. He has published an annotated bibliography Animal Magnetism, Early Hypnotism, and Psychical Research from 1766 to 1920: An Annotated Bibliography (1988). He has written several books on the history of psychodynamic psychology in the West, most notably From Mesmer to Freud: Magnetic Sleep and the Roots of Psychological Healing (1993). He has written about the history of hypnosis and advocates a the redefinition and resituating of hypnosis, placing it in terms of the broader category of trance, particularly in his book Memoir of a Trance Therapist: Hypnosis and the Evocation of Human Potentials (2014).

He is contributing author of a book on extraordinary rogue phenomena of human experience titled Irreducible Mind: Toward a Psychology for the 21st Century (2007), and associate editor of a study of the possible explanations for these phenomena called Beyond Physicalism: Toward Reconciliation of Science and Spirituality (2015). Both of these books grew out of the fifteen-year research project of the “survival seminar” of the Esalen Center for Theory and Research, of which he was a founding member.

His latest book is Evolutionary Love and the Ravages of Greed (2017). It is concerned with an examination of the nature of love, both as an interpersonal and an evolutionary force in the world. He writes about two kinds of love at work in cosmic evolution: agape(benevolent and beneficent love) and eros (desire-love). He also examines the domination of greed in today’s tumultuous world as a psychosocial reality and sees it as the result of a defect in the practice of love. He also offers a proposal for a grass roots solution that involves widespread growth of the practice of agape in the human community

OF ALL the mysteries of the human mind, hypnotism is probably the most striking, yet least understood. Anyone who has seen a good stage hypnotist will know that suitable subjects can be manipulated in the most surprising ways. But academic psychology offers no satisfactory explanation for hypnosis. Nor is there very much serious investigation of its workings, outside the world of smoking cures and fringe psychotherapy.
Hypnotism is not a new subject. As Adam Crabtree makes clear, the phenomenon has been been recognised for more than 200 years. But from the beginning it was associated with outsiders and occult theories, and it has always been viewed with distrust by the scientific establishment. Crabtree describes how Franz Mesmer, an 18th-century physician, constructed an exotic theory of 'animal magnetism' to explain the trancelike reactions of patients he treated by laying on hands. Some of his followers were convinced that these 'magnetised' subjects gained powers of clairvoyance and telepathy; sceptics argued that it could all be explained by the suggestibility of the fashionable Parisians who flocked for treatment. There were also suspicions of sexual impropriety, for many accounts of 'magnetic crises' in female patients fell little short of the explicitly orgasmic.

So heated was the late 18th-century debate about mesmerism that in 1784 Louis XVI appointed a Royal Commission to investigate the craze. Among its members were Benjamin Franklin, then American ambassador to Paris, Antoine Lavoisier, the great chemist, and Dr Guillotin, whose eponymous invention would within a decade be the instrument of Lavoisier's death. The Commission's report attributed the behaviour of 'magnetised' subjects to imagination and imitation, but the tradition of animal magnetism continued to flourish, and Crabtree describes a century of further scientific commissions whose reports ranged from dismissive to generously agnostic.

As Crabtree tells the story, mesmerism provides the foundation for an 'alternate-consciousness paradigm'. Hypnosis and associated techniques allow the therapist to explore otherwise hidden centres of consciousness. Crabtree argues that this tradition has been largely eclipsed in the 20th century by the influence of Freudian psychoanalysis. While Freud himself used hypnosis at the start of his career, he later abandoned the technique, on the grounds that the unconscious is merely a misplaced aspect of a unified self, rather than a second consciousness in need of an independent channel of communication. However, Crabtree anticipates a resurgence of interest in the 'alternate-consciousness paradigm', http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/book-review-are-you-feeling-sleepy-its-only-a-magnetic-crisis-from-mesmer-to-freud-magnetic-sleep-1396792.html

I think this is a very well rounded critique and worth hearing. From 43:34 I think he focuses on what I am interested in.

I saw this posted on another forum and it ties in with what Bernhard Guenther and others are presenting. This researcher has been studying the ancient sources and supports the knowing that that we can achieve the state of "Christ Consciousness". This ends cyclic existence on earth. This is not a prison planet but is a planet that matches a kind of consiousness. How do we develop a kind of consciousness which supports "moving on" in the journey?
