I hear you, Spiritwind. Shit is escalating. I love the phrase Christine gave me, I'm knee deep in alligators. It's in the physical world I see all around me, it's energetic too. I go back to something Kryon said in the last year, sometimes a concept he introduces sticks with me. The concept was, that if things are shifting for and in human consciousness, and if they are becoming more...of light...then the dark shit will be stirred up and more visible. That seems to be true, in my experience.
To add to all of what you have noticed, one of my daughters brought something to my attention that disturbed me also. There is a kids you tube channel, apparently. Obviously, if a channel of tv or radio or even you tube is designated a children's channel, it is assumed the content will be child appropriate.
There is a video of Peppa Pig circulating. It is a twist on the old "Where is Pointer?" children's song, changed to be the fingers of family members (Where is Daddy finger, Where is Mommy finger, etc etc etc). So really, the whole video must be five minutes or less.
They go through the verses once with Peppa Pig and family. First of all, the imagery of the daddy figure poking the children can be seen as inappropriate. It looks rather like pedophilia. So when she showed me the video, I was a little concerned. But it got worse. After the first round of verses, the second round shocked me. Absolutely shocked me. The sound is the same, so that if parents heard it without seeing it, they would never suspect anything.
The second verse, however, is set to this animation: five fingers, all topped with a Mickey Mouse looking finger puppet, each one holding a gun and shooting either himself or the next finger character. Liquid coming out the opposite side of the head.
After that second verse, the third verse returns to the Peppa Pig characters. So sandwiched right in between perverted poking of children lies (I'm not joking here) the imagery and idea (placed directly into a very young child's mind) of shooting oneself and everybody else in the family. Graphically blowing their brains out, literally, in a very child friendly animated way.
What. The. Fuck.
And so it goes...maintain your center, my friend.
Edit to add: The video has been removed, no trace of it. But I did find this article, which shows a picture of the Mickey Mouse like characters:http://www.today.com/parents/moms-warn- ... ul-t101552
