Swings and Current Influences Between Parallel Realities | David Topi (Shift in Consciousness Update)

No comments:

By guest contributor David Topi (Translation & thanks to José)
The way the human understands the world is conditioned by how humans taught us what the world is, so it’s not a surprise that we don’t know anything outside of what we have been told. If somebody was able to open our eyes suddenly to the multiple realities that exist in the space-time that occupies the place where you are reading this, you would probably ask yourself in which science fiction movie are you in and what is happening around you that makes no sense at all.
Imagine, suddenly, that you are the only one in your environment that can see that other realities ,and you are walking by the street and start to perform some circles and movements in order to avoid things — people, buildings and other obstacles that you only perceive like real — but nobody else notices them because they only see one pavement free of any obstacle that you are avoiding in a slalom way. “What are you doing, mate?”  They would ask.” Don’t you see that there is a tree in the middle and two bikes were coming towards you?” But no, there isn’t neither a tree nor any bikes here.
Multiverses in action
We don’t see the other realities, fortunately; at least the major part of the human population, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t exist. The multiverse idea of multiple universes, one of the quantum physics theories and in so many science-reality movies, talks about the parallel existences that coexist superimposed to the others without any conflict and that stay separated from each other because the infinitesimal differences that exist in their orientation of the axis of the basics particles that form each reality. That is, you are where you are and you perceive the world you perceive because you are oriented and tuned, in a quantum way, with ONE of those realities, but the other realities are still there, merely, the axis of your quantum particles that forms your existence and world, are different or are oriented in a way that you can’t perceive the rest of realities that share the same space-time, sub-atomically. Don Juan de Castaneda used to say that moving what he called your anchor point he can tune and move to other worlds, which is something like re-align a concrete point of the human structure in order to change the tuning dial and capture that other lateral dimensions which co-exist with our dimension.

Ed Dames' Killshot | Psychic reading by Lynn from Focus Sessions

No comments:
By Lynn via Focus Sessions, 28 July 2016

Q. Hi Lynn. There have been many predictions of possible solar events such as solar flashes or solar flares that could change the dynamics or life on this planet and/or the solar system.   Ed Dames actually claimed to remote view catastrophic results of the solar Killshot and also published maps of so called safe zones. There are also rumors or speculations of a Solar Flash that almost sounds metaphysical in nature. What are your views on this? And do you think being at higher elevations (Mountains)is a good idea? Thanks Lynn for your time.
A. As I look at one of his maps (I included it here in the post) and tune into it, I get an overwhelming feeling of accuracy as he has outlined it.  The one thing that really comes to me though is the time frame in which he is referring to.  I don't see this as one major event, and the earth is forever changed, but rather several events spanning over hundreds of years that create a new way we view earth.  Things look to take phases much like dominoes.

I do see solar flares as a contributing cause as they hit the earth and much of the energy is absorbed in the crust (to later be released in the form of earthquakes- I hear "energy is not created or destroyed, but rather held or displaced in another way").  The sun's intensity combined with the release of energy in the form of earthquakes looks to be the main cause of the geographic change. (The man made HAARP consequences also play a role.)

I'm also drawn to the land mass that emerges to the west of South America. I do see these areas (I noted one by California too) of very fertile land rising, and they will be valuable to the ecosystem.

Overall, I feel he is authentic and has been able to glimpse into the distant future.  He is able to illustrate what a distant earth with look like.

And that is all I have for this reading.  Thank you.  Love and light-

Remote Group Healing for the Weekend of the 30th of July, 2016

A reminder to come and check out and join in at transients' new forum, The Roundtable. At a later stage I may stop posting these articles advertising the sessions on the site here, and just stick to posting a new thread on an appropriate board, on the forum, I will see how that feels and how it would work. (I could always have a link on the site here leading to a board dedicated to the weekly sessions)

For those taking part in our remote group healing session this weekend, please let us all know so we are aware of who will be there with us, by replying via a comment here or sending along an email via  the Contact & About link through the Menu. You can find current and past sessions via the 'Weekly Healing' link in the menu, as well as links to feedback focused articles discussing some of the work this group gets up to outside of our primary healing intentions.

Researchers Find Biological Explanation for Wheat Sensitivity

No comments:
By Karen Foster via Prevent Disease, 27 July 2016

new study may explain why people who do not have celiac disease or wheat allergy nevertheless experience a variety of gastrointestinal and extra-intestinal symptoms after ingesting wheat and related cereals. The findings suggest that these individuals have a weakened intestinal barrier, which leads to a body-wide inflammatory immune response.

Modern wheat isn't really wheat at all and is a "perfect, chronic poison," according to Dr. William Davis, a cardiologist, author and leading expert on wheat.

Approximately 700 million tons of wheat are now cultivated worldwide making it the second most-produced grain after maize. It is grown on more land area than any other commerical crop and is considered a staple food for humans.

Despite the success of wheat, it is widely considered one of the most destructive nutrients affecting weight and health.

"Our study shows that the symptoms reported by individuals with this condition are not imagined, as some people have suggested," said study co-author Peter H. Green, MD, the Phyllis and Ivan Seidenberg Professor of Medicine at CUMC and director of the Celiac Disease Center. "It demonstrates that there is a biological basis for these symptoms in a significant number of these patients."

An Invite to The Roundtable | It's been a slow news week...

No comments:
This has been a slow news week in terms of sourcing articles and topics to share on the site. I thought I had better write one and update everyone on something that is close to my heart now. This is exciting.
I have been spending a great amount of time over the past few weeks setting up transients’ new forum, The Roundtable. This forum will sit alongside the new site I have been designing for transients and will eventually replace transients’ Facebook Group (the one with over three thousand members). I have reached out to many friends who specialise in certain areas in life that relate to the boards I have setup (38 boards so far), which mostly cover the various topics that this site has always been about, and I have asked them to come and moderate the respective boards that fit into their fields and interest.
At least 90% of those people have accepted my invitations so far and we have some great souls involved that will provide a solid foundation to the future of this forum. Including four global moderators — the rest being board moderators — we will be reaching roughly twenty or so moderators soon once I get everything configured. A few more will come on board within the next week or so. But there are more boards to be looked after and forum elements will sort themselves out over time.

King Arthur presides at the Round Table with all of his Knights (Wikipedia)
My vision of this forum: It will have an element of the essence of the word roundtable, in terms of people being equal with discussions and staying away from the typical power structure of popular internet forums, but at the same time it might have a further influence of the Arthurian legend. I am really more focused on the theme of this site making it into the energy and space of the Forum, but as I look more into the Arthurian era, some things resonate with what I am doing — that is something that mind came after I had the idea of doing this, and after I had the name ‘Roundtable’ just pop into my head for a working title for the forum, which is becoming more permanent as we go along.

Pokemon Go | A Psychic Reading from Focus Sessions

No comments:
This fits right into what I have been picking up.

By Lynn via Focus Sessions, 25 July 2016

Q.  What is up with this Pokemon Go game that so many people are playing?

Look at the Economist Magazine cover.  Is this game another example of how we are following blindly in the world of virtual reality?  Is this a secret weapon for PTB  / PTW? Are they recording all the housing, geographic location info with no cost to the information gatherer? 
A. I see this Iphone / Android game as a couple things.  First, it is a huge distraction.  I see the targeted audience of this game having a lot of power, influence and also vulnerability (like if they used their efforts for good, they could create so much positive change).  This upcoming powerful demographic could pose a threat if they created a shift that opposed the current agendas in play. That is why they are being manipulated and led down a different path.

The Sad Truth: How Big Pharma Maintains Compliance, Brand Loyalty, & Market Share

No comments:
By Laurie Powell via Collective Evolution, 26 July 2016

What can pharmaceutical companies do when their target audience cannot or will not comply with their prescribed medication recommendation? They target the caregiver, of course. For some patients, especially the mentally ill or the elderly, compliance is an issue.

And Big Pharma does not want patients to miss a single dose of their medication. Compliance techniques are very sophisticated, however, and a caregiver, rebranded as a “Partner in Care,” becomes a Partner in Profit.

Patient education is big business for pharma. One missed dose of hypertension medicine is not life-threatening but pharma has many medications that require regular doses to keep patients on the hook and on schedule.

There are numerous websites that are disguised to look like they are created by patient advocacy groups and legitimate healthcare organizations for caregivers of relatives with diabetes, Alzheimer’s Disease, cardiovascular disease, autism, Down’s Syndrome, Parkinson’s Disease, etcetera. By creating an organization and/or an online community, they are able to get large groups of people to buy into and share the marketing messages as they are fed by pharma.

How computers are learning to be creative | Blaise Agüera y Arcas, TED Talk

No comments:

TED Description: (17 minutes) "We're on the edge of a new frontier in art and creativity — and it's not human. Blaise Agüera y Arcas, principal scientist at Google, works with deep neural networks for machine perception and distributed learning. In this captivating demo, he shows how neural nets trained to recognize images can be run in reverse, to generate them. The results: spectacular, hallucinatory collages (and poems!) that defy categorization. "Perception and creativity are very intimately connected," Agüera y Arcas says. "Any creature, any being that is able to do perceptual acts is also able to create.""

How Your Brain Changes After Mindfulness

No comments:
By Michael Forrester via Prevent Disease, 23 July 2016

Mindfulness-based teachings have shown benefits in everything from inflammatory disorders to central nervous system dysfunction and even cancer. Training groups in mindfulness has become a powerful tool in preventative intervention. Researchers at the University of Cincinnati (UC) are studying how cognitive therapy that uses mindfulness techniques serve as an alternative to pharmaceuticals

Mindfulness is "the intentional, accepting and non-judgemental focus of one's attention on the emotions, thoughts and sensations occurring in the present moment", which can be trained by a large extent in meditational practices.

Anxiety disorders are among the most common psychiatric conditions affecting children and adolescents. While antidepressants are frequently used to treat youth with anxiety disorders, they may be poorly tolerated in children who are at high risk of developing bipolar disorder.

Many antidepressants cannot be metabolized by segments of the population due to deficiencies in metabolic pathways such as Cytochrome 450. Historically, these non-metabolizers are given more and more psyche drugs as they become more and more psychotic until they hang themselves, kill someone else or become disabled in a mental institution. So what's better than medication? Mindfulness.

Dr. Madhav Goyal of the John Hopkins School of Medicine, who led research published in JAMA, singled out mindfulness meditation as of of the most effective forms of introspection.

Tony Robbins & Marie Forleo: What It Takes To Have an Extraordinary Life

No comments:
Here is an hour long interview by Marie Forleo with motivational speaker and author Tony Robbins. Tony came on MarieTV and shared candidly about his life, family and work — and what you can do right now to transform the quality of your life. Also check out these quotes from Tony I have included below which may show you a side of him you hadn't seen before.

“Success comes from taking the initiative and following up… persisting… eloquently expressing the depth of your love. What simple action could you take today to produce a new momentum toward success in your life?”

“It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.”

In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.

“Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.”

“It’s not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.”

You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.

“It is not what we get. But who we become, what we contribute… that gives meaning to our lives.”

Only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution experience life’s deepest joy: true fulfillment.

A full year of life on Earth as seen 1.6 million km away

No comments:
Via The Watchers, 22 July 2016

On July 20, 2015, NASA released to the world the first image of the sunlit side of Earth captured by EPIC camera on NOAA's DSCOVR satellite. The camera has now recorded a full year of life on Earth from its orbit at Lagrange point 1, approximately 1.6 million km (1 million miles) from Earth, where it is balanced between the gravity of our home planet and the Sun.

EPIC takes a new picture every two hours, revealing how the planet would look to human eyes, capturing the ever-changing motion of clouds and weather systems and the fixed features of Earth such as deserts, forests and the distinct blues of different seas. EPIC will allow scientists to monitor ozone and aerosol levels in Earth’s atmosphere, cloud height, vegetation properties and the ultraviolet reflectivity of Earth.

The primary objective of DSCOVR, a partnership between NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Air Force, is to maintain the nation’s real-time solar wind monitoring capabilities, which are critical to the accuracy and lead time of space weather alerts and forecasts from NOAA.

New Zealand Grants Human Rights to a Former National Park

“Te Urewera is a legal entity, and has all the rights, powers, duties, and liabilities of a legal person.” [Source]
The conflict between man and nature can easily be seen in how we treat the natural world, and the norm for centuries has been to exact total dominion over the plant and animal kingdoms. The world’s legal systems have long since backed this presumption by granting rights to persons and corporations while asserting that nature has no voice in courtrooms.
This global attitude is ever so slowly beginning to crack, and in recent years India has set an example by granting legal status and full rights to dolphins, signaling an unprecedented sea change in our relationship to the creatures which have inhabited our home since long before civilization.
In another notable act of equality, the small island country of New Zealand has enacted similar legislation, this time granting full rights and powers to a former national park.

To Truly Define Your Greatest Abilities, Don't Compare Yourself To Others

No comments:
By April McCarthy via Prevent Disease, 20 July 2016

Human beings have a tendency to compare themselves to others and it is as automatic as any other human emotion. But the negative effects of comparisons keep us from our growth and embracing our greatest abilities to share with others.

Comparisons are often unfair, biased and almost always puts our focus in a place outside of ourselves. Ratings of our own abilities are strongly influenced by the performance of others, according to a study published in Neuron. Interacting with high performers makes us feel more capable in cooperative team settings, but less competent in competitive situations. Moreover, the degree of "self-other-mergence" is associated with activity in a brain region previously implicated in theory of mind-the ability to understand the mental states of oneself and others.

"We found that although people estimated their abilities on the basis of their own performance in a rational manner, their estimates of themselves were partly merged with the performance of others," says first author Marco Wittmann, a doctoral student in cognitive neuroscience at the University of Oxford. "The findings potentially have implications for social interactions in the workplace as well as clinical disorders such as depression."

One Of A Kind: The Passing of Betty Balcombe

No comments:
I didn’t know Betty Balcombe personally, but I had heard stories about her through an online friend that knew her very well. I understood she was very well respected as teacher of a number of areas relating to metaphysics and that she was also extremely gifted as a psychic and healer. Betty, who was based in England and passed at the age of 79 on the 9th of July this month, seemed to be one of a kind in terms of how she lived her life and used her psychic based abilities — she was very well respected in her field.
Below I quote Julian Machin from an article posted yesterday over on the Independent. This article by Julian is well worth the read. You can find it here
“Politicians, actors, entertainers and people of all kinds came to see her – often in waves of professions as her reputation spread by word of mouth – and many flew in especially, while others came from ordinary walks of life. Her diary was full for months in advance and luckily she didn’t like going on holiday.” … “She had to be very careful about what she said. Her two books As I see It and The Energy Connection – guides to developing people’s psychic abilities – were written in clear, unadorned language that allowed for no mistake in understanding. She was asked by an admiring prospective publisher of one of them if she would only re-write it to claim that the information it contained had been “channelled” by an ancient Native American spirit guide, because it would then sell thousands of copies. She refused.”

Betty Balcombe
With permission I am including two articles below, the first one being written by my friend Annie, and the second by Jacq — both were close to Betty Balcombe. This information provides a very personal look into Betty’s life and touches on situations, and information, that people who knew of her may not have known about. The first section by Annie is actually a chapter from a book she was planning to write.
