The Great American Eclipse-An Astrological Analysis

On August 21st, 2017, we will be experiencing one of the most powerful and significant total solar eclipses of our lifetime.

Its path of totality goes right across the United States from coast to coast, starting from Oregon in the West to South Carolina in the East. This eclipse has been on the radar for both astronomers and astrologers for years and has been dubbed ‘The Great American Eclipse.’

Astrologically speaking, all eclipses have an effect on everybody on the planet, however, the location it travels over will experience it more potently.

The effects of solar eclipses can start to be noticeable months prior and up to 6 months later, however, its influences and results have long term significance. I will be writing another article on this eclipse touching on more about what it means for us as individuals.

This article is addressing its potential influence on geopolitical matters.

This Solar Eclipse Is In Leo Trine Uranus, With South Node in Aquarius

We have started to experience a series of both lunar and solar eclipses in the Leo-Aquarius polarity axis which initiated in February and will last until early 2019.

Eclipses always occur when the New Moon or Full Moon is in close proximity to one of the two Lunar Nodes. The North Node of the Moon is in Leo which means there is new beginnings and a push towards this sign.

The South Node is in Aquarius, which represents where endings are trying to be facilitated associated with that sign as well that are getting in the way of fulfilling the North Node in Leo.

This upcoming ‘Great American Eclipse’ is near the North Node in Leo and because it’s also a New Moon, it really emphasizes the forward energies of the North Node.

The Lunar Eclipse that occurs prior on August 7th in Aquarius near the South Node also emphasizes the ‘past’ energies wanting to be shifted.

Leo is the sign of the leader, the ‘king’, and the performer. When expressed negatively, it is dramatic, egoic and arrogant. Aquarius is associated with the group, collective ideology. Negatively expressed, it can overshadow the way an individual can shine in doing things their own way.

When we look at what is happening politically, Donald Trump and his style of governance is representing the Leo energy while most of the other Western leaders/countries (which have been US allies) who are globalists represent the Aquarian side.

This Solar Eclipse is in a tight trine aspect with Uranus in Aries which gives this eclipse a theme of independence, separation, and freedom. Uranus is also associated with being unconventional and also rules technology and innovation.

One of the major reasons for Trump winning the election is because many US citizens have grown upset over globalist policies (Aquarian) that had cost the country a lot of money.

For example, the US has been the largest contributor to NATO, the military alliance that protects Western Europe and North America. Also, the country has also been suffering financially due to trade imbalances with other nations.

Leo energy is more self-orientated, strong willed, wants to stand out from the crowd, and create its ‘kingdom.’ This combined with the Uranus influence mentioned above is exactly what we are seeing under the Trump-ruled United States.

This energy is also somewhat connected Britain’s exit from the European Union as well which is currently underway.

Saturn is also in a loose trine with this eclipse and Uranus. Saturn has been in Sagittarius for the last few years.

Sagittarius rules countries and Saturn is a restricting and redefining influence which is why we have been seeing conflicts around immigrants and refugees coming into Western countries and Trump’s muslim ban.

This Solar Eclipse is Aligned with Regulus and Trump’s Astrology Chart

The star Regulus is one of the major stars observed by astrologers.

It is the ‘heart of the Lion’ in the Leo constellation and is associated with leaders, rulers, and traditionally being referred to as the ‘star of kings.’ Donald Trump was born when Regulus was rising, which is also aligned with his Mars which traditionally is associated with strong military leaders.

An important thing to mention is that when there is a total solar eclipse, the Moon completely cuts off the light of the Sun.

Traditionally, when there would be an eclipse like this aligned with Regulus or a similar type of star, it could mean a significant change regarding a leader or ‘king’, and in some cases a downfall or symbolic death.

Similar Eclipse Occurred in 1998 Leading to Bill Clinton’s Impeachment

The last time we had a solar eclipse aligned with Regulus was in 1998, which was also conjunct then President Bill Clinton’s Sun sign.

At that time Bill Clinton admitted to having sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky and his impeachment process was underway in the months following.

This echoes what is currently currently going on with lots of talk around impeaching Donald Trump. The ‘Great American Eclipse’ is also part of a series of connected eclipses, called Saros Series 145.

The years that these eclipses take place usually correlate with the fall of a leader:
John F Kennedy was assassinated
Franklin Roosevelt died
a Russian Prime Minister was fired
the downfall of former Yugoslavian/Serbian President Slobodan Milošević occurred under ‘Saros Series 145’
assassination attempts on Ronald Reagan and William Taft during these eclipse years
John F. Kennedy’s son died in a plane crash
Uranus will also be making a tough square to Donald Trump’s career ruling planet which could also indicate potential impeachment or other major disruptions or changes around his role of President.

Also, considering that his Mars is being activated this indicates that he may go to ‘war,’ either domestically with the people trying to bring him down and/or perhaps even with another country.

Saturn and Uranus are also in a trine with Mars that is loosely aligned with this eclipse.

This could also indicate some sort of military action or upgrade.

Potentially Dividing the Country Further

The interesting thing about this eclipse is how its pathway literally draws a line over the United States from one corner to the other.

Symbolically this could represent the sharp division between the US citizens that has been brewing since the rise of Trump

In October 2016, I personally predicted that Trump was going to win the election because of this ‘dividing pathway’ while also considering the alignment with his chart and Regulus.

Perhaps when we consider all of this so far, it is very possible that an attempted impeachment of Trump could trigger further domestic turmoil both in Washington and amongst US citizens across the country.

Trump supporters would likely revolt towards the political establishment which could potentially lead to civil unrest that could potentially escalate into a civil war.

The Connection with Pluto in Capricorn

Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008 and will stay there until 2024.

Pluto is the planet of secrets, power, manipulation, as well as transformation, death and rebirth. Capricorn is associated with government as well things like business and banking.

Therefore to put it simply:
this is a period in which government structures and the hierarchy of the geopolitical arena will continue to have problems, which will ultimately help to initiate major changes set to develop over time beyond 2024.

The last time Pluto was in Capricorn was from 1762-1778 and at the end of that time period the US Declaration of Independence was signed and the US was birthed.

All of this occurred during the American Revolutionary War in which the colonies were in a battle with an oppressive and troubled Britain.

This period marked significant new beginnings as the US would eventually become the leading country of the world, taking Britain’s place. However, with this edition of Pluto in Capricorn, the US is now the troubled and oppressive power.

Over the years since it started, a lot of disappointing secrets have been revealed due to,
Wikileaks
Edward Snowden
the rise of conspiracy related media platforms…
This has created a dissatisfied population which led to the election of Trump.

However, as Pluto’s influence is growing stronger, Trump also represents the ‘abuse of power’ qualities of Pluto as well.

Saturn Entering Capricorn In December, Another ‘American Eclipse’ in 2024

Over the next 7-8 years, there will continue to be a lot of turmoil in the US, which will ultimately lead to greater new beginnings which will have both a domestic and global impact.

This eclipse, which strongly influences the next 6 months, is triggering this energy. During this 6 month window of time, Saturn will enter Capricorn on December 21st (winter solstice) and will stay there for approximately 3 years.


This will amplify Pluto’s energies mentioned above and reflect further problems for government and banks.

This could manifest as a major recession and economic downfall which may even start earlier then December, building up slowly after Saturn ends its retrograde on August 25th.

On April 8th, 2024, there will be another total solar Eclipse travelling over the US.

This is the same year that Pluto ends its passage through Capricorn and it will also coincide with other astrological aspects/cycles that suggest this will be the period in which the new beginnings will start to take place.

The way I see it, this ‘Great American Eclipse’ marks the beginning of a 6-7 year window of major changes and will conclude around the time of the next Solar Eclipse travelling over the US on April 8th, 2024.

A lot of changes are underway, not just in government, but also,

Earth and Humanity Awakening in 5D


Rethink Greeks-Romans myths and awaken from deceptions of colonizing darkness that enslaved-brainwashed us.

Gods created by religions are super-imposed on our deep consciousness-beliefs and shattered our perfect memories from Source. You are from the Adamic race, perfect.

Earth after two planetary collisions of 3,400+ years interval with other planets – Nibiru-Marduk planetary system was caught by our Sol gravity eons ago. Earth is thrown out of realm – the effects of bursting suns-supernovas on collision with the planets of our Sun-Sol.

These are records written in stone tablets 1x2M+ in Mesopotamia. Mosul, Iraq-Alexandria, Egypt, sung in hymns in step buildings in Sumeria as a recital of how we were brainwashed like what we are today by belief systems.

Our planet known as Tiamat was broken to half, with Earth, a moon and asteroids as resultant ‘debris’ known today. The mini-solar system of Nibiru caught by the gravitational pull of our Solar System has an elliptical orbit and loop, sling shot Sol says Physicist Kaku, Harrington and anthropologists Zitchin.

It has a dwarf star and seven planets and it’s ‘moon’ or planet Kingu’ cuts thru.

Theoretical-meta-physicists said that it will be around our sun in the next few years, another fear effect?

Physicists say planetary star crossing is late 2017 as Nibiru approaches us that will create cataclysmic effects on our planet’s axis and operating gravitational pull. For the record says Zitchin, Nibiru has revolved around us over millennia and created biblical stories of magical religious proportions inclusive of a passing star followed by three Kings.

NASA says Planet X (Nibiru) is coming back then kept silent to keep us calm. They are ‘theoretical’ physicists, made conclusions on what their thoughts and calculations tell them like us.

When are they coming? Guess says NASA while YouTube coverage alarmed us all being part of FEAR factor.

Earth’s dinosaur-reptilian age passed-extinguished leaving 65M years of skeletal forms displayed at our urban museums, London, New York… making Earth a reptilian planet. Gigantic planets and asteroids hurtle in space like the dwarf star Nibiru whose planet Kingu collided with earth.

The dwarf star must be similar to our Jupiter on the way to star brilliancy, knowledge brought by NASA..

It sideswiped Uranus and hit ‘Tiamat’ directly with one planet, Kingu says Zitchin and was back after 3,400+ years to divide ‘Tiamat’ into
“FALLEN earth”
the Moon
asteroids,
…leftovers in the process of collision.

This is similar to asteroid earth collision event says scientists that extinguished the reptilians and an event normal in the universe. Earth grows 200 tons a day from space dust-debris and we see this daily, meteors falling down or passing by earth.

We experience the same impacts similar to Nibiru collisions discovered and analyzed thru satellite readings that relocate oceans and continents in the process. Dust, meteors-asteroids form part of our new evolving planet after we have fallen from collision, a very far description of the true nature of ‘fallen earth’ by religions, all false.

There is always light and darkness in the multi-universe.
“The event could have been the provider of seeds of life to earth.”
Seas-oceans-continents are replaced, transferred or created as a result of these collisions.

We call these tectonic or volcanic in origin says science where .continents shift and new islands sprout. Continents moved as a result of tectonic activities.

Beautiful paradise planet Earth has this historical brief of several billion years:
cut, divided, formed again to imperfect ball form-growing, still not perfect sphere by 5-miles.
Dark conquerors write in stone clay tablets to propagate their conquest similar to conquest of Asia and America by the Europeans, history within humans on earth.

Clear as the blue skies, they are commercials to lure us to subservience. Dark beings saw the wondrous creation of paradise complete with all the resources they need to survive and they came in alternating presence of conquest and dominion.

They left their planets as we are left astray and destroyed at the 21st century.

Aside they came for gold and silver to resuscitate their dying planets full of ozone holes similar to acts of the Europeans on other continents. Earth and humans are abused by over-commercialism and mining not far from the Archon conqueror’s destructive acts.

No being can own Mother Earth seeking higher planetary dimensions to 7D. Her final destination is Solar, 8D., perfection for planets. Jupiter is ahead in terms of climb to planetary climb to 8D.

Source Energy’s – SE – creations is attained when light reaches an integrative balance point of positive and negative in all known universes. For humanity, death of carbon bodies is the living start of our spirit to reach higher consciousness.

After 26,000-years of the planet’s revolution, crystalline light form of our body-soul-spirit is an alternative to the death of a body, the latest of Unconditional Love creations as carbon bodies are transmuted, transformed to this light form.

Live life in positive-STO ways, sharing your love-overflowing photon lights with others.

What Photon light you absorbed flow outward from your loving heart and mind that overflow to all complimented by Central Suns and other Stars in terms of intense energies supplied to Earth and humanity.

STS beings should change and undergo reformation as they seek light of Source.

The negative part of life’s balance thru incarnations is for them to seek a flicker, a spark of light as they have chosen darkness in their ways of life. Love provides darkness the avenue to climb, reach and attach to that spark of light of Source.

The dark beings over lifetimes without energy from Source propagate dark teachings to create fear, anger and hate to make their beliefs reality in their sense of dark existence. For the seekers of light, awakened and who realized who we are, our numbers increase and we assist Gaia rise to 5D.

Call it the reintegration of our spirits’ entity fragmented in 3D-4D and the head at 5D.

The stages of spiritual development and connectivity to Source is individual, thence planetary, cosmic to universal consciousness to ONENESS that we all desire.

They are specific destinations till you are ONE with Source Energy at the 11-12D, Unconditional Love and Free Will. I repeat, what is significant is we are all here to re-integrate our soul-spirit at 3D-4D with 5D Spirit Entity fragmented in several vibrational frequencies.

That is why you are a fragment of the Source of ‘all that is’, a multi-dimensional being.

For 5-6D starseeds, to experience life at 3D an invitation is required. If you are strong at heart and an adventurer. Adamu says, “foolhardy” you agreed to shattering to live in 3D where no one from the higher frequencies can live without forgetting or amnesia. Such is the arrangement for those who agreed to raise the consciousness of Gaia to 5D.

From 5D we fragmented to 4D to 3D and lower 3D.

Intense energies are showered on us and Gaia provide us soul gifts of inspiration, intuition, enlightenment, collective consciousness and unconditional love.

They are now coming to fruition.

Is that not beautiful and wonderful for human souls? We are fragments of light-spirit entity, our embodiment and thru a process of reintegration we are transmuted to 5D consciousness where our 5D spirit entity resides.

We all seek a vibrational dimension where the harvest of soul gifts are at hand.

Grandfather Adamu, Pleiadian says:
“…But most of all we are here in great numbers because of the critical importance to the entire galaxy that Earth’s human population succeeds in the in-situ ascension process that is being attempted here.

This has never been done before.

And if it succeeds, it will irrevocably alter galactic relations. It will end, once and for all, the interplanetary wars that have raged since the beginning of time.”
I hope his remarks have an impact to your lives as it has done with me although mine came from Christ Consciousness-CC at an early age of 12 and reinforced by Arcturians and Pleiadians overflowing information from the Light.

Imagine darkness can finally be eliminated from the universal role of evolution, monotony or perfection.

WARS, DEATH TO INSTILL FEAR

People talk of world wars and forecasting WWIII, even movies at dark dominated Hollywood forecast these fear predictions that seeps into our consciousness unknowingly as entertainment but they all talk of love as the only solution to wars.

The Wonder Woman of DC forecasts WWIII movie in the making and how she saved her in the script.

“She”, the script writer must be an ascended being like Adamu who says that only “love” can save earth. My grandchild interviewed me on my experiences on these wars for a school project report.

It is incorrect word for one planet discussing world wars as they are really nation or ethnic wars like the Axis-Germany and Japan and Allied-American-Euro group conflict of WWII.

Planetary wars or world wars as Pa Adamu says are continuing events in the universe-dark-light planets.

Imagine at our Milky Way Galaxy, 65M living planets with beings like us – negative-positive ones – who are at war and who will triumph is in the thoughts of Source Energy. You are given the chance to see direct the light of SE and the elimination of these raging world wars.

Advanced beings bring you the whole story in vivid pictures, telepathic, and it is up for you to say it in your words in your language.

Less educated humans eons ago described gold and silver lined homes as palaces and 7th heavens unknowing what they really are and tell us they met or sit with the father. They never knew they are earth’s properties ransacked by the Archons.

What brainwashing they did to us for commercials and love of money.

Tribal wars or killings is described by the dark as patriotism to look good – to serve their purpose, colonization and dominion over others when you have to perfect love of others from love emanating from your heart, nothing else. Peace can never be attained by wars but only by unconditional love bringing peace.

We know that at this stage of earth, those are only words and are difficult to attain in an unjust, suffering and ‘chaos’ environment where extremist of religions turned terrorists to create caliphates.

That is the reason of our presence, why you are INVITED to assist humans in physicality with direct assistance from. Source overflowing us with intense energies from varied sources. Refuse to harm or traumatize others and peace and harmony will start in our world.

This means you have conquered implants made by Archons and humans are awakened.

The dark created litany of havoc in major countries eliminating-exterminating, millions of humans, stories of fear creation.
People in millions, all in exodus running to Germany-Europe creating terroristic activities for some.

Syria bombings, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan invasion

PH by ISIS at Marawi City takeover in 2017,
…are current war aggressions by presumptuous warlords.

Advanced beings SE lieutenants are not subject to time nor space and has transcended incarnation processes. They observe us in our skies unseen for the last thousand years of illusion assisting humans if asked.

They are not subject to time and space.

UK parliament leaders apologized in 2016 to their citizens for the death of their youths in Iraq war. USA Bush must be crawling in the dark for his actions. We hope they ask forgiveness from the people of Iraq who are wronged and traumatized.

Their true purpose is the destruction of records, lost as a result of bombing for us not to know and learn the truth about human real heritage.

Mosul is destroyed including the mosque where ancient records are maintained. This is a continuation of the war to destroy the records of Nineveh Library.

On the nuclear front taught to us by Sirian Beings, we cannot waste this golden opportunity nor be bullied by dark beings to pulverize ourselves with nuclear bombs, a repeat of Sumerian cities, Hiroshima-Nagasaki, Japan annihilation.

Chernobyl and Fukushima are worst post-war disasters of the nuclear type of power generation, destructive power and the ocean currents are shifting to Asia.

Sirians, the good Higher Beings of their planet can undo this technology and clear the waste. Truman had his dark ways knowing that the war against the Axis is already won and still dropped 2 nuclear bombs, a horrible trait of negatively polarized beings who had this technology done on Earth.

Destruction of written stone tablets, monuments-olden buildings is their aim. Infighting of religions and records destroyed created the loss of the Great Libraries of Niniveh-Mosul in Iraq and Great Alexandria Library-Egypt.

Keeping us blind is dark tool. 7 Nuclear bombs destroyed Sumer. Records lost means DG13- puppets won at least for 26,000 years of dominion.

Other libraries exist humanity know at Ascension and that we are in today with Internet.

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE , ACCEPTANCE AND FORGIVENESS

Source Energy is at 11-12D and endless frequencies of unconditional love-free will.

He allows the dark to recognize their ills and to start to seek light again. We have to undergo removal of defects, healing, cleansing and repair to restore us to perfect creations, mind body form as our light spirit is perfect, untouchable but lived in a dark physical body whose dark experiences have to be healed and cleansed.

That is the meaning of SE’s love, light and free will despite impurities.

On false beliefs, analyze the 1800 AD virgin mother stories. Studies from stone inscriptions quote Egyptian and Iraqi scholars on questionable teachings which should be reviewed for record.

Analyze records and we quote:
Virgin mother story comes in 2 dozens of stories like Horus, 3000 B.C. the Egyptian God is born of the virgin Isis, Mithra-1200 B.C, Persian God, Attis, 1200 B.C.

Greek god of virgin Nana-Krishna, 900 B.C., Dionysius, 500 B.C.

Greek god, King of Kings, only begotten son, born on December 25 with 12 disciples, died for three days; resurrected, a perfect copy for Apollonius-Gesus created by Constantine, now popularly known as Jesus.

Horus life is inscribed on the walls of the Temple of Luxor in Egypt in 3,500BC with images of the “annunciation, immaculate conception, virgin birth, ministry, death and resurrection” 1,500 years before ‘Gesus’, Jesus for Constantine.

Scribes of Egypt describe the virgin birth of December 25 of various Gods that went to the underworld and after 3 days resurrected.

Priests and bishops tell us that only Gesus – aka Apollonius – had this birth December 25 virgin birth, a mockery to thinking and analyzing awakened humans.

Two websites describe in detail the same stories made by Constantine in 325 AD. That is the meaning of awakening, believe or not, we start to teach-learn and further analyze and seek the truth.

Everything is an individual path to unity consciousness, what you do is what you get.

We do not have a blind eye for truth and reality of events. Analyze and let your spiritual heart and mind decide, as you can feel it in your heart. Imagine, they are all 50,000+ 200,000+ years old.

Priests use 1,800 years as long religious history.
Predictions of scientists at YouTube about Nibiru collision are preposterous.

They are MSM, only our collective consciousness can make things happen with the assistance of ‘all that is’ and SE lieutenants. Our collective consciousness creates the reality we want, final.

Nibiru has been passing by nth times in a million years and the ‘Sons of Gods’ are beings like us who implanted us with retardant genes to make us slaves.

At one planetary crossing, after learning gold is common on Earth, they landed 600 astronauts to be the first miners then we became slaves.

The astronauts go on strike after thousand years as they are not miners nor slaves. They made us slaves to replace the 600 astros. We reproduce for their fodder and labor in mining, household and agricultural farms. Go deeper, analyze and learn. Fear creation has been perfected by Archons and you can stop it now knowing your DNA lineage from the stars.

Similar to Nibiru that found our gold, NASA and other countries with similar research facilities found planets.

In June, 2017, NASA scientists have found 4034 exoplanets and 2,335 of them are confirmed as planets; 50 of them are habitable zones with water potential.

Susan Thompson of Kepler Mission made humans seekers of truth as we are really made by Source to be the,
“transferors of knowledge to the universe”.
We start our mission by research and learning.

INTENSE ENERGIES

Every 26,000 (25,920) years we pass the Photon Belt that overflow us with intense energies from Central Suns and stars.

Dark beings will have to construct dungeons, tunnels and mile long air-conditioned pits to hide from these healing lights. Some exist near the core of earth, a prison for the dark.

Most of them left for other 3D planets or return to their own planets at the Milky Way Galaxy to escape from intense energies.

Who knows the $11B collider tunnel in Switzerland is of dark origin hiding in the guise of testing and bombarding light to neutrinos in underground mountains. Let us know if you are not dark in origin and a practicing professional in that dungeon as negatives may emerge again after passing the Photon Belt.

The collider was constructed to destroy anything wholesale as it can blast light to neutrinos, earth minerals to nothingness, all a matter of opinion. No human can predict the future. NO ONE even if he says he is “god” can tell final transformation to New Earth-Golden Age.

The word God is Archon origin, thus untrue. We call them sons of Gods.

Archons create FEAR dark ‘God’, and tell us of apocalypse. Photon energies provide transmutation of human bodies to crystalline form and we are on the march-journey to “Golden Age”.

With these intense energies, we learn light language and acquire soul gifts on our way to 5D love, light and collective learning. It is time that unity consciousness be primordial in our thoughts seeking connectivity with ‘all that is’.

For the dark seek that spark, that flicker of light and embrace these overflowing pure white light from Source Energy, the Central Sun that create our dreams of a 5D to 6D world-the Golden Age of Gaia.

After being raised to 5D, you completed your difficult journey-passed for a new assignment.

Of course you can settle at 5D for a moment NOW, for R&R as there is no time anyway in 5D or you can be observer of other planets similar to our galactic brothers and sisters, learning and assisting humans where we can easily mix.

They are also learning a new skill, combination of love from heart connected to mental development. Emotion of LOVE is new in the galaxies of beings.

We ask why would “he” have gamut of experiences-evolutions of creations when nothingness to intelligence is the start of the universe?

Intelligent Energy got curious and curiosity filtered to Source Energy; gave free will, unconditional love and light with all types of beings, planetary systems, galaxies, universes and multiverses created out of the curiosity of Source.

Meta-physical history for you to analyze and think about!

Think again, death of physical body is one of the ways to experience higher consciousness! Choose Ascension as we are led to it by ‘all that is’.

History is taught and learned…

The NASA Confirmed People Are Capable Of Super Human Abilities Using These Ancient Techniques

 Ever wanted to be in more than one place at a time? That’s right, I’m talking about the super-human abilities that can be gained by those who follow the protocol for what’s known as sun-gazing, a valid practice recently confirmed by NASA.

Many proponents of this ancient technique, used by many cultures such as Mayan, Egyptian, Aztec, Tibetian and Indian yoga, report not only healing benefits to common illnesses, but obtaining super-human abilities such as advanced telepathy and going completely without the need for food.a

Nikola Tesla quoted:

My idea is that the development of life must lead to forms of existence that will be possible without nourishment and which will not be shackled by consequent limitations. Why should a living being not be able to obtain all the energy it needs for the performance of its life functions from the environment, instead of through consumption of food, and transforming, by a complicated process, the energy of chemical combinations into life-sustaining energy?

WHAT IS SUN GAZING?

Sun gazing (also known as sun-eating) is a strict practice of gradually introducing sunlight into your eyes at the lowest ultraviolet-index times of day – sunrise and sunset. Those who teach the practice say there are several rules to the practice. First, it must be done within the hour after sunrise or before sunset to avoid damaging the eyes. Second, you must be barefoot, in contact with the actual earth – sand, dirt or mud; and finally, you must begin with only 10 seconds the first day, increasing by 10 second intervals each day you practice. Following these rules make the practice safe, says sources.

Nikolai Dolgoruky of the Ukraine calls himself a ‘sun-eater’. He has been practicing sun gazing for the past 12 years and has largely subsisted off solar energy since he began. Others have reported losing the need for food after only 9 months of sun gazing (by which time the practitioner has worked up to a maximum of 44 minutes). After 9 months of practice, you need only walk barefoot on the earth for 45 minutes per day, 6 days in a row to further the process of what has been initiated by sun gazing.

Sun-gazing is a practice also called the HRM phenomenom, coined as such after Hira Ratan Manek, the man who submitted himself to NASA for scientific testing to confirm that he does indeed possess the almost ‘super-human’ ability of not eating, gained through his dedication to this interesting marvel. Funded by NASA, a team of medical doctors at the University of Pennsylvania observed Hira 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 100 days. NASA confirmed that he was indeed able to survive largely on light with occasionally a small amount of buttermilk or water during this time.

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE BODY DURING SUN GAZING?

During your first 3 months of practice, the suns energy is moving through the eyes and charging the hypothalamus tract, says those who have studied this technique and used it. The hypothalamus tract is the pathway to the rear of the retina which leads to the brain. The brain then, over time, becomes activated by the energy supply being received by the sun.

You will first experience a relief of mental tension and worry, since most worry is fueled by the energy received by the foods we eat. Since food gets it’s energy from the sun, it is said to be readily available to sun-eaters without the trouble of digestion. Though hunger is said to eventually cease, it is fine to continue eating regularly during initial stages, until appetite disappears naturally.

Another benefit early on is said to be an increase in confidence and an ability to easily solve your problems, as you are without tension. Everyone has at least a bit of psychosis, but during the first few months of sun gazing practice, it is reported that these attitudes go away and a positive nature gracefully replaces the old persona full of fears. By the end of 3 months, the gazing time will have increased to 15 minutes per day.

Reports on sun gazing say that the bad qualities normally associated with any person will gradually disappear and good qualities will remain, explaining that ‘bad qualities’ only develop in the absence of sunlight. Bad qualities like anger, fear, jealousy, lust – are said to disappear – and be replaced by a certain confidence and ‘spiritual knowing’ that senses more purely the heart of an issue.

At 3-6 months of gazing, the studies show that physical diseases start to disappear. They say that by the time one is gazing 30 minutes per day (building up 10 seconds per day) all the colors of the sun will have reached the brain. Color therapists attribute their healing of certain diseases to flooding the body and brain with the particular color that is lacking – depending on the ailment.

For example, in liver disease, the color green is deficient. The kidneys need red, and the heart, yellow. All of the organs and all of the systems are said to respond to different colors of the rainbow, which is why it is also recommended to eat a diet rich in a variety of colors. It is recommended during the 3-4 month period that you use autosuggestion to see your body already healed of any perceived weakness or disease. This action will facilitate the process of returning to wholeness.

As you continue the process, it is reported that after 6 months, the energy stored from the technique is no longer being used for repairing the body or the mind and can move now into supporting you in gaining more super-human abilities.

WHAT’S BEYOND HEALING?

By seven and a half months of gazing, now at 35 minutes, need and desire for food is dwindling. According to sun gazing experts, food is not actually needed to maintain the body, only energy – and ‘sun-eating’ provides that energy. By 9 months, all taste for food, including aroma, all hunger pains and cravings disappear.

Those who make it this far say that they report a noticeable ‘change’ in the way their brain feels – like it’s “charged up.” After 9 months of sun-gazing – reaching a maximum of 44 minutes – it is advised that you give up sun-gazing and redirect your attention now to the Earth.

For 6 days straight, one is to walk barefoot on the earth, 45 minutes per day. During this barefoot walking, the pineal gland is said to become activated. Professional sun gazers and those researching the science say that each toe is connected to a specific gland, and by walking barefoot on the Earth, you activate these glands.

The big toe is thought to be aligned with the pineal gland, the second toe with the pituitary, then the hypothalamus, thalamus and finally the pinky toe correlates to the amygdala. Walking barefoot, with the sun now falling on the top of your head, practitioners claim to create a sort of magnetic field in and around your body that recharges you and your brain.

Apparently this walking barefoot part is the most important aspect of the practice. As you continue walking on the Earth, this is when the magic really begins. The pineal gland is activated more and more by this walking procedure. Intellect is said to increase, along with memory. The pineal gland has navigational and psychic capabilities, meaning telepathy, the possibility of flight… now we are getting somewhere! Have you ever thought you would like to have your body in more than one place at a time? Well, sun-gazing is said to be the magical key to such abilities.

If you can barefoot walk 45 minutes every day for a year – you are golden. At that point, only a maintenance of 3-4 days a week is necessary to maintain the capabilities you have acquired.

ARE THERE ANY DANGERS?

Doctors and eye care professionals caution against looking directly at the sun, saying that it will damage the retina. However, if done correctly, sun-gazing at the correct times of day, studies show there is no risk of damaging the eyes. Those who have been sun gazing for many years have had their eyes checked to show no damage, though it is advised that you have your eyes checked in the first few weeks of your practice, so you can know for yourself.

Remember, it’s 10 seconds the first day, at sunrise or sunset, adding 10 seconds per day each day there after. After 90 days of accumulative gazing equaling 44 minutes, you cease the gazing and start the barefoot walking 45 minutes per day for 6 days. At this point, I could imagine, hey – if you made it this far, what’s a year of barefoot walking an hour per day to keep it all? You will have to try it out and see for yourself.

If you are really interested in gaining super-human abilities, confirmed by reputable organizations like NASA, as the ones mentioned above, sun gazing sounds like a fairly straightforward path to enlightenment !

NEED TO KNOW ALERT: Throw Away All “Fidget Spinners” NOW- Authorities Confirm They Can KILL Your Child

Fidget spinners are the latest craze that seemingly burst on the scene out of nowhere, but our friends at America’s Freedom Fighters are sounding the alarm that they may not be all fun and games.
It seems the gadgets, which employ ballbearings and balanced blades inside plastic casing to spin, have been found in some cases to contain dangerous amounts of lead and mercury.

All fidget spinners? Of course not. The problem, though, is that there are no patents governing who can and can’t manufacture them.

AFF’s Brett MacDonald notes:

Just last week, 200,000 units of of the popular toy were seized by EU customs officials for failing to adhere to the health standards set by the Union. 

AFF also cites Tamara Rubin, an anti-lead-poisoning activist, who tested several fidget spinner samples:

Two were lead-free, but one had very high levels of lead and some mercury. She then disassembled a fidget spinner with LED lights and found both lead and mercury. She found 19,000 parts per million (ppm) of lead and 1,000 ppm of mercury.

These numbers are sobering because scientists consider under 90 ppm of lead to be the safe threshold in children’s toys, according to Rubin. But the paint on the LED light spinner contained 334 ppm of lead and 155 ppm of mercury in one test. The unpainted metal base contained 1,562 ppm of mercury and 2,452 ppm of lead.

Rubin later tested six more fidget spinners and found a $31 from Yomaxer that contained 42,800 ppm of lead. She noted ordinary consumers won’t have access to an XRF instrument, which can cost around $50,000.

30,000 Scientists Agree: Climate Change Is A Hoax


NASA atmospheric scientist John L. Casey revealed that solar cycles are largely responsible for warming periods on Earth – not human activity.

On top of those “inconvenient truths,” the White House’s assertion that 97 percent of scientists agree that global warming is real has been completely debunked. Several independently-researched examinations of the literature used to support the “97 percent” statement found that the conclusions were cherry-picked and misleading.

More objective surveys have revealed that there is a far greater diversity of opinion among scientists than the global warming crowd would like for you to believe.

“A 2008 survey by two German scientists, Dennis Bray and Hans von Storch, found that a significant number of scientists were skeptical of the ability of existing global climate models to accurately predict global temperatures, precipitation, sea-level changes, or extreme weather events even over a decade; they were far more skeptical as the time horizon increased.”

And, of course, there are the more than 31,000 American scientists (to date) who have signed a petition challenging the climate change narrative and 9,029 of them hold PhDs in their respective fields.

Many of those scientists who signed the petition were likely encouraged to speak out in favor of the truth after retired senior NASA atmospheric scientist John L. Casey revealed that solar cycles are largely responsible for warming periods on Earth – not human activity.

Former NASA consultant, climatologist John L. Casey: ‘A radical shift in global climate is underway, 30-year cold spell coming’

With nasty cold fronts thrusting an icy and early winter across the continental U.S. – along with last winter described by USA Today as “one of the snowiest, coldest, most miserable on record” – climatologist John L. Casey thinks the weather pattern is here to stay for decades to come. 

In fact, Casey, a former space shuttle engineer and NASA consultant, is out with the provocative book Dark Winter: How the Sun Is Causing a 30-Year Cold Spell, which warns that a radical shift in global climate is underway, and that Al Gore and other environmentalists have it completely wrong. The earth, he says, is cooling, and cooling fast. 

And unless the scientific community and political leaders act soon, cold, dark days are ahead. Casey says the evidence is clear that the earth is rapidly growing colder because of diminished solar activity. He says trends indicate we could be headed for colder temperatures similar to those seen in the late 1700s and early 1800s when the sun went into a “solar minimum” – a phenomenon with significantly reduced solar activity, including solar flares and sunspots. 

If he’s right, that would be very bad news. Dark Winter posits that a 30-year period of cold has already begun. Frigid temperatures and the food shortages that inevitably result could lead to riots and chaos. 

Casey tells Newsmax, “All you have to do is trust natural cycles and follow the facts, and that leads you to the inevitable conclusion that the sun controls the climate, and that a new cold era has begun.” Casey is president of the Space and Science Research Corp., an Orlando, Fla., climate research firm. His new book debunks global warming orthodoxy. For more than a decade, he reports, the planet’s oceans have been cooling. And since 2007, the atmospheric temperature has been cooling as well. 

“The data is pretty solid,” Casey says. “If you look at the 100-year global temperature chart, you look at the steep drop-off we’ve had since 2007. It’s the steepest drop in global temperatures in the last hundred years.” 

So how can the media and scientific elites make a case for global warming when it’s actually cooling? Casey suggests climate-change theorists have simply wedded themselves to the wrong theory – namely, that global temperatures respond to the level of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Any scientist suggesting otherwise is castigated as a heretic, though there are other prominent scientists who support Casey. 

Noted Russian astrophysicist Habibullo I. Abdussamatov has argued that a new mini-ice age has begun, though Casey doesn’t go that far. He does agree with Abdussamatov that the real driver of global climate is solar activity, namely sunspots. These correspond to shifts in global temperature with a greater than 90 percent accuracy, he says. The environmental left focuses instead on ever-rising greenhouse emissions, suggesting nature is just taking a bit of a breather before the upward march in temperatures ineluctably resumes. 

“There are two fundamental flaws with that,” Casey says. “No. 1, the greenhouse-gas theory, and the global climate models that they produced, never permitted a pause. As long as CO2 levels were going up, the only thing that could happen was global temperatures could go up. That has not happened. 

“No. 2, there could absolutely be no cooling, much less a pause. And yet we’ve been cooling for 11 years now.” 

The recent polar vortex that sent temperatures across the Midwest plunging to sub-zero records is not an aberration, Casey says. If Dark Winter is right, that means the nation is busily preparing for the wrong calamity. 

“We don’t have 10 years,” Casey warns. “We’ve squandered during President Obama’s administration eight years … and we didn’t have eight years to squander.” 

The worst of the cooling cycle, Casey predicts, will hit in the late 2020s and the early 2030s. Food riots will break out, demand for heating oil will spike, and the failure of the corn crop will put the squeeze on ethanol. He even predicts the United States will ban agricultural exports to feed its own citizens. 

Climatologist: 30-Year Cold Spell Strikes Earth

When Casey developed his theories in 2007, he emerged with several predictions.

Rising temperatures would begin to reverse themselves within three years. The sun would enter a phase of reduced activity he called “solar hibernation.” And oceanic and atmospheric temperatures would enter a long decline.

So far, all of Casey’s predictions have come true. He says, “My theory tells you when it will be cold … and it is the cold that kills.” 

Casey also suggests that a long-term cold spell will have dire effects on the earth’s geology. 

As air and ocean temperatures cool, the earth’s crust begins changing, leading to more volcanic activity and earthquakes. Casey notes that the worst earthquake to strike the continental U.S. in modern times was in 1812 in New Madrid, Missouri — during the last great solar minimum.

The climate changes also will affect human activity and may be a prelude to revolutionary politics. He says the French Revolution took place at the beginning of the last solar minimum in 1789. 

“It could be one of the reasons Putin is so eager to get Ukraine,” Casey says. “For many decades before Ukraine became independent, it was the primary source of wheat for the Soviet Union during cold weather times. Putin must have the wheat of Ukraine for the new cold era.”

Casey has a worried look as he talks about the revelations in “Dark Winter.”

“There is no human on earth, much less here in the U.S., who has experienced the depth and duration of cold we’re about to experience — it’s that serious,” he says.

European Union Climate Laws Underminded by Czech and Polish Revolt


As the world looks to the EU for leadership on climate, eastern states are diluting laws supposed to guide Europe toward its carbon reduction targets.

East European EU states are mounting a behind-the-scenes revolt against the Paris Agreement, blocking key measures needed to deliver the pledge that they signed up to 18 months ago.

Under the climate accord, Europe promised to shave 40% off its emissions by 2030, mostly by revising existing climate laws on renewables, energy efficiency and its flagship Emissions Trading System (ETS).
But documents seen by Climate Home show that Visegrad countries are trying to gut, block or water down all of these efforts, in a rearguard manoeuvre that mirrors president Donald Trump’s rollback of climate policy in Washington.

Energy efficiency is supposed to make up around half of Europe’s emissions reductions by 2030, but a Czech proposal could cut energy saving obligations from a headline 1.5% a year figure to just 0.35% in practice.

Below the radar, Poland has also launched a manoeuvre that may block the EU’s winter package in its entirety – particularly a planned limit on power plant emissions – if it is signed up to by a third of EU parliaments, or 10-13 states.

The EU’s various wings will eventually thrash out a compromise between the commission’s original proposal – which was calibrated to meet the Paris pledge – and the counter-proposals designed to weaken this.

The effect this could have on the EU’s overall emissions has raised concerns among those in Brussels who wish to see the EU maintain its leadership on climate.

“We cannot allow backward-looking east EU states to destroy the EU’s credibility on the Paris agreement,” said Claude Turmes, the European parliament’s lead negotiator on climate governance.

“A successful and ambitious energy transition is one of the few remaining positive stories for Europe. If we allow that to be drained by vested old interests from east Europe, our international credibility – and the last remaining trust of our citizens – will be smashed,” said Turmes.

On Thursday and Friday this week, the EU leadership will meet with Chinese prime minister Li Keqiang. Climate change is a top agenda item at the meeting. A Sino-European coalition on climate action has been mooted as a possible bulwark against the reversal in the US.

The measures proposed by the east EU rebels are highly technical but their potential to diminish carbon savings is clear.

Existing loopholes in the EU’s energy efficiency law already cut the real 1.5% annual energy saving law to around 0.75%. But the Czech proposal, seen by Climate Home and largely accepted by the Maltese EU presidency, would slice off an estimated 0.4% in real savings by trimming the target itself and introducing loopholes.

These include a cut to firms’ energy saving obligations, a stretching of the deadlines by which they must be met, and a double-counting of solar and wind investments towards both renewables and efficiency targets.

Buildings milestones planned for 2030 and 2040 have been edited out of a separate draft energy performance in buildings law after lobbying by Visegrad states.

An article ensuring at least one electric vehicle charging point for every 10 public parking spaces has also disappeared from the commission’s proposed text.

“It is clear that the east European countries are only thinking of cheap energy and nothing else,” one informed source said. “That applies to Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, all of them. The problem is that Germany is not taking a leadership role.”

Documents released by Greenpeace Energydesk on Sunday show the UK government has also been lobbying to weaken the energy efficiency target, despite its intention to leave the EU.

Poland’s far right government has been mired in sniping with the European commission since taking power in 2016. This year, it has already threatened to take the EU to court over its climate laws – and won concessions on its plans for subsidies to keep coal plants running when there is no demand.

Coal is seen as the “foundation” of Poland’s development by the ruling Law and Justice party, despite the thousands of Poles it sends to an early grave each year, and the unparalleled dangers it poses to the climate.

The EU’s preferred method of squeezing big emitters is carbon trading but here too, a Polish proposal taken up by the European parliament’s majority right wing blocks would drain the EU’s proposal of meaning.

A Polish memorandum, which Climate Home has obtained, proposes carrying over a glut of 907m worthless “hot air” carbon credits into the next market phase, depressing prices and reducing incentives to scale back CO2 emissions.

Femke de Jong, a spokeswoman for Carbon Market Watch said that the Polish proposal “would rig the EU’s key climate law with loopholes [and] put the EU’s delivery of the Paris climate goals at risk, at a time when Europe’s climate leadership is most urgently needed.”

But Poland views its gambit as a “reward” for early compliance with past climate obligations, which were largely met by closing down Soviet-era industries.

While Poland’s idea might allow the EU to meet its Paris obligations on paper, it would also open the door to surplus credits covering 550 million tonnes of carbon equivalent (Mtoe), according to a commission analysis obtained by Climate Home.

The same working paper says that a separate “early counting” proposal by Bulgaria, Romania, Latvia and Lithuania would increase the carbon allowance surplus by 690 Mtoe – triple the four countries’ combined 2014 emissions.

Poland also wants a huge increase in forestry offsets that would allow it to continue its coal-first energy model so long as it plants more trees.

De Jong said the ensuing carbon credits shower would allow the EU’s agriculture sector to continue business as usual until 2030, “which means that emissions cuts would need to be nine times steeper afterwards to achieve our climate objectives.”

The Best Spots To Watch 2017 Great American Eclipse 

Here are 10 great viewing spots to watch the August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse, weather permitting.

 Image via GreatAmericanEclipse.com

The foremost criterion for selecting a site is the weather. Any location along the path of totality from Oregon to South Carolina can enjoy good weather on eclipse day, but the western half of the United States, especially from the Willamette Valley of Oregon to the Nebraska Sandhills, will enjoy the very best weather odds. You can watch the weather forecasts starting a week before eclipse day to judge whether you can strike for a spot close to home or drive further afield.

Wherever you go, every eclipse viewer should have a plan for mobility. Even in the sunniest locations, you don’t want to be caught under a cloud during the precious two minutes of totality. Pick a location with a good and uncrowded highway system that you can use to relocate the day before, the morning of, or the hour before the eclipse if weather threatens. The total solar eclipse will be such a spectacle that you won’t regret making the effort to find a clear viewing location.

Another piece of advice is to stay flexible in your plan for eclipse day. August is a perfect time of year for camping, so consider bringing a tent or recreational vehicle in case a weather system forces you to relocate several hundred miles. Even if you reserve a hotel room in a prime location, don’t stay fixed to a location if the short-term weather forecast is not favorable.

So where is the best location to see the eclipse? Here are our ten picks for perfect viewing spots to gaze upon nature’s grandest spectacle, weather permitting.
