CDC - Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Whistleblower
ˈCHitˌCHat - Page 16 1547

One Lie Two Many: From Vietnam to Vaccines, the CDC is Exposed for a Second Time in the New Book Vaccine Whistleblower.

It appears that the only thing dirtier than the ingredients found in vaccines is the science behind vaccine safety.

In the new book, Vaccine Whistleblower: Exposing the Autism Research Fraud at the CDC, attorney Kevin Barry has provided context to a series of tapes that were recorded last summer by Brian Hooker, PE, PhD, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) senior epidemiologist Dr. William Thompson.

Had someone not blown the whistle on the CDC whistleblower last August 2014, Thompson would have divulged a lot more. Needless to say, when he was outed last August, with the most powerful people in the media and government away on vacation, by the time Labor Day came around the story had lost its lift.

Being outed prematurely forced Dr. Thompson to hire a law firm that specializes in protecting whistleblowers against retaliation.

Press Release on Dr. William Thompson

After Dr. Thompson introduced himself in the August 27, 2014, presser, he stated: “I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.”

Today, outed for a second time with the book being published by Skyhorse Publishing (disclosure: my publisher for 3 upcoming books) without Thompson’s permission, the “raw” tapes, which had been transcribed, evolved into a coherent narrative on some of the darker elements of the “science of justification,” allegedly perpetrated by the agency that is tasked with the health, wellbeing and prevention of diseases of Americans.

Sobering Numbers

Since 2000, parents of autistic children have suspected that the United States’ childhood immunology program has run amok with as many as three times the number of vaccines given to U.S. children than any other nation in the world.

Plasma waste recycling

ˈCHitˌCHat - Page 16 Plasti10

Humans are machines for turning the world into waste—at least that's how it seems. On average, every single person in the United States produces about 2kg (5lb) of trash per day, which adds to up three quarters of a ton, per person, each year! What are we to do with all this junk? Recycling is one option, but not everyone does it and there are lots of things (such as electronic circuit boards) made from multiple materials that cannot be easily broken down and turned into new things. That's why much of our waste goes where it's always gone, buried beneath the ground. But we're running out of landfill space too—and that problem is bound to get worse. Another possibility is to incincerate waste, as though it were a fuel, and use it to produce energy, but incinerators are deeply unpopular with local communities because of the air pollution they can produce. A new type of waste treatment called plasma arc recycling (sometimes referred to as "plasma recycling," "plasma gasification," "gas plasma waste treatment," "plasma waste recycling," and various other permutations of the words plasma, gas, arc, waste, and recycling) aims to change all this. It involves heating waste to super-high temperatures to produce gas that can be burned for energy and rocky solid waste that can be used for building. Supporters claim it's a cleaner, greener form of waste treatment, but opponents argue it's simply old-fashioned incineration dressed up in new clothes. What exactly does plasma recycling involve? Let's take a closer look!

ˈCHitˌCHat - Page 16 1551

They can create temperatures of over 10,000 degrees—enough to blast waste materials apart into their constituent atoms so they can be reassembled into less harmful materials.

What kind of waste do we make?


ˈCHitˌCHat - Page 16 Types-of-waste-chart

Chart: Most of the waste we produce is relatively harmless paper, metal, plastic, and so on (blue), but about 20 percent of it is much more problematic (orange and yellow). This high-level waste is a mixture of hazardous material, incinerator ash, and a very tiny amount (less than 1 percent) medical waste.

Over three quarters of our trash is ordinary, relatively harmless household waste made up of paper, card, glass, plastics of various kinds, metals(mostly steel and aluminum), and food waste. In many countries, much of this is now separated and recycled or (in the case of food waste) composted or fed into an anerobic digester, although quite a lot still goes to landfill or incineration. Simple household waste aside, there's quite a lot of other trash that can't be treated so easily. For example, batteries and other toxic chemical waste, and medical waste from hospitals. And some conventional forms of waste treatment (recycling plants and incinerators) themselves generate waste products that have to be disposed of safely: things that cannot be recycled or highly toxic "bottom ash" from incinerators that needs to be disposed of somehow. Plasma recycling claims to be able to tackle all these kinds of waste safely and with little or no harm to the environment.


What is plasma arc recycling?


To answer that question, it helps to understand how plasma recycling differs from conventional incineration: simply tossing waste on a fire. Incineration makes use of the chemical reaction called combustion, in which fuel (in this case, household trash) burns with oxygen to release waste gases (typically carbon dioxide, steam, and various kinds of air pollution) and heat energy; a conventional energy-from-waste incinerator is really just a polite version of that. The main differences between a simple bonfire and a waste incineration plant are: 1) the waste is burned in a closed container at extremely high temperatures (to destroy as many toxic chemicals as possible); 2) pollution from the smokestack (chimney) may be trapped and "scrubbed" clean before it's released (using an electrostatic smoke precipitator); 3) a very tall smokestack is used, (theoretically) to disperse any remaining pollution in the wind; and 4) the energy released by burning the waste is captured and used to boil water, drive a steam turbine, and generate electricity.

ˈCHitˌCHat - Page 16 Plasma-arc-recycling

Artwork: Although plasma recycling processes vary, most work in broadly this way. Raw waste is processed to remove any recyclable materials before being fed, with gas, to the plasma arc. This vaporizes the waste to produce syngas (which has to be scrubbed clean) and aggregate.

Plasma arc recycling doesn't involve combustion. Instead of simply burning the waste (at a few hundred degrees), the waste is heated to much higher temperatures (thousands of degrees) so it melts and then vaporizes. This is done by an electrical device known as a plasma arc, which is a kind of super-hot "torch" made by passing gas through an electrical spark. Think of the spark you get from the sparking plug in a car: electricity feeds into the plug from the battery, makes a lightning-like spark leap across a small air gap between two contacts, and the spark ignites the fuel that powers your engine. A plasma arc is a much bigger version of the same thing, with a gas (such as oxygen, nitrogen, or argon) blowing through it to create a kind of super-hot plasma torch (like a giant welding torch).


ˈCHitˌCHat - Page 16 Plasma-torch-waste-pyrolysis

Artwork: How a simple plasma torch plant works. Waste enters through the gray hopper (labeled 31), where it's compacted into small bales and freed of air by the green hydraulic ram (32), then pushed up the orange shute (36). Bales of waste are gradually pushed by the smaller green hydraulic rams (40, 46, 50) into the blue "reactor" until the orange photoelectric sensor (56) indicates the level is high enough. The red plasma torch (12) pivots around, converting the waste into useful syngas, which exits through the purple pipe on the right (64). Artwork from US Patent 5,634,414: Process for plasma pyrolysis and vitrification of municipal waste by Salvador L. Camacho, Solena Fuels Corp/Plasma Tech Corp, June 3, 1997, courtesy of US Patent and Trademark Office.

The plasma arc in a waste plant heats the waste to temperatures anywhere from about 1000–15,000°C (1800–27,000°F), but typically in the middle of that range, melting the waste and then turning it into vapor. Simple organic (carbon-based) materials cool back down into relatively clean gases; metals and other inorganic wastes fuse together and cool back into solids. In theory, you end up with two products: syngas(an energy-rich mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen) and a kind of rocky solid waste not unlike chunks of broken glass. The syngas can be piped away and burned to make energy (some of which can be used to fuel the plasma arc equipment), while the "vitrified" (glass-like) rocky solid can be used as aggregate (for roadbuilding and other construction). In practice, the syngas may be contaminated with toxic gases such as dioxins that have to be scrubbed out and disposed of somehow, while the rocky solid may also contain some contaminated material.


Pros and cons



Like every other waste-treatment process, plasma arc recycling has its pros and cons. But it's important to remember that most of us produce a significant amount of waste that must be disposed of somehow. Waste is a problem that needs a solution; it's not something we can just ignore. In other words, plasma recycling has to be judged not in isolation ("Is it good or bad?") but in comparison with the various alternatives ("Is it better or worse? »).

Advantages



Supporters of the technology claim that it's cleaner and greener than incineration, because waste is "rearranged" into different substances rather than burned to release pollution. Properly designed, a plasma plant theoretically produces no air pollution and no ash or dust; it's only real waste product is the solid, vitrified aggregate that can be used in construction (APP claim that their version, known as Plasmarok®, is "environmentally inert" and "leach resistant.") In practice, every kind of waste treatment produces toxic heavy metals and other residues that cannot be disposed of completely. In a plasma plant, they can at least be separated out, melted down, and reused; they're not simply being blown into the air as incinerator ash or stuffed underground in a landfill and left there to cause problems for future generations.

Unlike virtually any other kind of waste treatment, plasma recycling can cope with virtually any kind of waste, including the most hazardous, high-grade, and hard-to-treat forms (toxic incinerator ash, hazardous medical waste, toxic metals, electronic components, and so on). Where landfilling squanders valuable material and—at best—produces small amounts of methane energy, plasma recycling produces much more energy with no land-take. Indeed, some plasma recycling companies have even proposed "mining" existing landfills to use as raw fuels for plasma plants; that raises the prospect that we could eventually be able to clean up the toxic legacy of decades of landfill. Although plasma plants use a significant amount of energy, roughly two thirds of what they make is fed into the grid, which makes them, overall, carbon negative (they have an overall benefit where global warming is concerned). A typical plant would produce enough electricity to power up to 10,000 homes and enough waste steam, as a byproduct, to heat or provide hot water to maybe 500-1000. It's important to remember that plasma plants produce syngas as a fuel, which can either be burned to make energy in a conventional power plant or separated into hydrogen and carbon monoxide, with the hydrogen collected and stored for use in fuel-cell cars.

Disadvantages



Opponents of the technology are concerned that it's largely untried and its drawbacks aren't yet known. No-one really knows whether it's safe or whether it's more economic than other forms of waste treatment. One concern is that it's simply a new way of dressing up something that is little better than incineration. Although the waste isn't burned, it is heated and some harmful products (including heavy metals and toxic dioxins) are left over at the end of the process. The solid aggregate waste has been billed as a useful construction material, but no-one can yet be certain precisely what it would contain, how safe it would prove, or whether it could indeed release toxic chemicals into the environment over time.

One argument against conventional incinerators is that they undermine drives to reduce and recycle waste. If commercially operated incinerators need (and indeed profit from) steady supplies of waste, what is the incentive to reduce packaging in grocery stores and all the other things we routinely send to the trash?


Is it a good thing?



Plasma recycling is still a new technology and it's too early to say whether its benefits (the potential to supply energy, reduce fossil fuel consumption, and reduce or restore landfills) will outweigh its drawbacks (any toxic gases or solids that remain after treatment, the high cost of investment in a relatively untried technology, and any potential impacts on local communities). But with ever-increasing consumption, growing pressure on the environment, and the local unpopularity of incineration, landfill, and digestion, governments are bound to see plasma recycling as a relatively clean solution to a dirty problem that simply won't go away.

Powerful Goal-Setting
Tips for Creating Your Extraordinary Life

ˈCHitˌCHat - Page 16 Goal-setting-tips-to-achieve-goals

Goal-setting is an absolute must for people who want to succeed, find their true purpose, and create joy in their lives. Without clear goals, you will not have a clear direction on where you’re heading in your life. When you know your life purpose, determine your vision, convert your desires into achievable goals and then act on them, you’re virtually guaranteed success.

“If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy, and inspires your hopes.”
– Andrew Carnegie

When you’re finished reading this article you’ll understand the importance and science of goal-setting, how to set goals, and how to achieve the goals you’ve set for yourself.

Goal-Setting Theory & Science

After decades of research into how the human brain works, scientists now know that for our brains to figure out how to get what we want, we must first decide what we want. Once we lock-in our desires through goal-setting, our mind and the universe can step in to help make our dreams a reality.

Experts on the science of goal-setting and success know the brain is a goal-seeking organism. Whatever goal you give to your subconscious mind, the brain will actually start looking for information, for resources, and for opportunities and other ways to achieve the “want” you have identified. While this may sound like an impossibility given your current situation or circumstances, we’ve seen countless individuals “suddenly” get what they want — often from a source or opportunity that already existed in their life or sphere of influence, but that they had never instructed their brain to find it before.

Now to effectively engage the powers of your subconscious mind, a goal has to be specific and measurable. How much, by when. When there isn’t any criteria for measurement, it is simply something you want… we call it a wish, a preference, or a just good idea, but it does not register in the mind as a goal.

Some people call specific, measurable goals SMART goals.

What is a SMART Goal?

No matter what you call your goals, they must be specific and measurable. One of the best methods of goal-setting is setting SMART Goals. Ensure that your goals are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bounded. You have a bigger chance of achieving SMART goals than those that are vague and too broad or don’t have a specific target date for completion.

ˈCHitˌCHat - Page 16 Setting-smart-goals-e1490217647190

S- Specific

When goal-setting, your goal must be very clear and defined not only to you but to others as well. It should be precise, detailed, and capable of answering questions instead of creating more.

M- Measurable

Include dates, exact financial numbers, and amounts in your goal. Your goal shouldn’t be, “Make more money,” it should state a specific amount, by a specific time. “I will make $10,000 extra dollars by January 1st, 2018.” If the goal is broken down into steps, each step must be measurable, as well.

A- Attainable

Your goal must be achievable. You should be able to accomplish it within the constraints of time, money, environment, as well as your skills and abilities and other important factors. I do however, recommend you set a couple goals for yourself that I call “breakthrough goals” or a goal that is really going to push you to attain.

R- Realistic

Goals should be in line with the direction that you’re heading in life. Keep your goals in line with your true purpose. Don’t waste time with unrealistic goals.

T- Time-Bounded

Always set specific deadlines for the completion of your goal. Creating a target date of completion creates accountability and gives you more motivation. If you don’t achieve your goal by your specific date, that’s ok, adjust and keep moving forward. Always set a date to your goals.

How to Set Goals


The first step to goal-setting is to decide exactly what you want.

- What do you want to accomplish?
- What do you want to experience?
- What do you want to acquire?
- Who do you want to be?

One of primary reasons most people don’t get what they want is that they aren’t clear about what they want. Others will recognize what they’d like to have, but when they can’t see how it’s possible to get what they want, and they dismiss their desires as foolish and unattainable.
Don’t sabotage yourself this way!

1. Set Goals in Important Areas of Your Life


We start the goal-setting process by getting clear about what you want in order to create the life you want.

What do you want? To create a balanced and successful life, write down a minimum of 3 goals in each of the following 7 areas:

- Financial Goals
- Career/Business Goals
- Free Time/Family Time
- Health/Appearance Goals
- Relationship Goals
- Personal Growth
- Making a Difference

If you have more goals than this, don’t limit yourself – write them down! On the other hand, if writing down 21 goals seems like a lot, remember that we can have a mix of long-term and short-term goals.

For a goal-setting example, in the financial area, you may have a short-term goal of paying off a $5,000 credit card balance, as well as a long-term goal of amassing a net worth of $5 million dollars.

You want to keep both goals present in your mind, even though you’ll be working more actively on the short-term goal first.

2. Set a “Breakthrough” Goal


When setting your goals, it’s important to include a few that will make us stretch and grow to achieve them. These might be learning a new skill or trying something that is uncomfortable and maybe a little frightening, such as public speaking. It also helps to set a breakthrough goal that would represent a quantum leap.

Examples goals that require a breakthrough include: publishing a book, starting a business, getting on Oprah, winning a gold medal at the Olympics, or getting elected president of your industry association.

Material goals are important, but the ultimate goal is to become a master at life. In the long run, the greatest benefits we receive from pursuing our dreams are not the outer trappings of fulfilling the dream, but who we become in the process.

The outer symbols of success can all be easily lost. Houses burn down, companies go bankrupt, relationships end, cars get old, bodies age and fame wanes, but who you are, what you have learned, and the new skills you have developed never go away. These are the true prizes of success.

Motivational philosopher Jim Rohn advises that:

“You should set a goal big enough that in the process of achieving it, you become someone worth becoming.”
– Jim Rohn

Once you are clear about what you want, write them down and turn each item into a measurable objective.

3. Decide How to Measure Your Goals


Measurable means measurable in space and time – how much and by when. You cannot set goals without a proper way to measure it.

As soon as you commit to a big dream and really go after it, your subconscious creative mind will come up with big ideas to make it happen. You’ll start attracting the people, resources, and opportunities you need into your life to make your dream come true. Big dreams not only inspire you, they compel others to want to play big, too.

You’ll also discover that when your dreams include service to others – that is, accomplishing something that contributes to others – it accelerates the accomplishment of that goal. People want to be part of something that contributes and makes a difference.

4. Work on Your Goals Daily


To keep your subconscious mind focused on what you want, read your list of goals every day. For an even more powerful approach, close your eyes and focus on each goal and ask yourself, “What is one thing I could do today to move toward the achievement of this goal?”Write down your answers and take those actions.

As the old joke goes, “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” Steady progress in bite-sized chunks puts even the most audacious goals into reach.

You can also create a vision board and use it to visualize your goals each day. This helps keep you inspired and keeps your goals top of mind!

Create Your Own Life Goals List

One of the most powerful things you can do is create a life goals list for yourself. This is a list of all of the things that you want to accomplish in your lifetime. It always changes, it’s always updating itself BUT you must write your most important goals and dreams down.

Goal-Setting Examples

Let’s go through some goal-setting examples to explain why your goals need to be specific.

For example, “I want to lose weight” is vague. But it might become… “I will weigh 135 pounds by August 1st at 5 PM.” Or “I will increase my income to $80,000 year by December 31st at midnight.” Or I will live in a 35,000 square foot home, as big as the one Bill Gates has, by December 31st at midnight.” Now, notice in these examples, they all stated how much, by when. A specific amount that you can measure by a specific time that can be measured.

For instance, if you were to tell me that you wanted more money, I might pull out a dollar and give it to you. You would probably protest, saying “No, I meant a lot more money, like $20,000!” But there is no way I’d know how you’d define “more money” unless you tell me, right?

Similarly, your boss, your friends, your spouse, your brain, God, and the Universe can’t figure out what you want unless you tell them specifically what it is. What exactly do you want and when do you want it by?

Now an easy place to start when you’re setting goals is to simply look at one area in your life that you would like to be different. It might be where there is something that is negative or disturbing that you’d like to eliminate, or it might be where there’s something missing that you’d like to create. Something you’d like more of…more money, more love, more time.

Now once you’ve decided what you want you can either do something about it…or not. It is your choice and you have responsibility for your choices.

But bear in mind that you have to be willing to change your behavior and do something different if you want to create a different outcome. You have to be willing to take whatever risks are necessary to get what you want.

A Goal VS. A Good Idea


When there are no criteria for measurement, it is simply something you want, a wish, a preference, a good idea. To engage your subconscious mind, a goal or objective has to be measurable. Here are a few types and examples of good goals to give you more clarity.

Setting Personal Goals 

Good Idea: I would like to own a nice home on the ocean.

Goal: I will own a 4,000-square-foot house on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, Califonia, be noon, April 30, 2018.

Setting Goals For Weight Loss and Health

Good Idea: I want to lose weight.

Goal: I will weight 185 pounds by 5PM, January 1, 2019.

Setting Leadership and Business Goals

Good Idea: I need to treat my employees better.

Goal: I will acknowledge a minimum of 6 employees for their contributions to the department by 5PM, the Friday.

How to Achieve Goals

Setting goals are only the first piece of the puzzle. Once you’ve set goals you must take immediate, everyday action to accomplish them. Sometimes, when things don’t happen for you as fast as you’d like

1. Check Your Expectations


When we admire someone’s success, we tend to focus on the end result and overlook the time and effort it took to get there. This can cultivate unrealistic expectations and lead to the idea knowing how to be successful happens overnight.

But the thing is, overnight success is a myth. REAL success typically follows a series of small events and achievements that can seem to take an eternity, include a number of disappointments along the way, and challenge you to the core: your stamina, courage, integrity, and even your willingness to keep going.

So if you’re feeling particularly challenged right now, don’t worry! It’s all part of the process. The important thing is to learn the lessons you need to learn and keep moving forward.

2. Focus on What is Working – NOT on What Isn’t Working


When you’re frustrated because you’re not progressing as quickly as you’d hoped, it can be easy to focus on the negative instead of the positive.

You may even find yourself entertaining self-destructive thoughts like “I’m not good enough,” “It will never work,” or “Something must be wrong with me.”

But one of the great laws of the Universe is, you get more of what you focus on. So if you pay more attention to the things that aren’t working, you’ll encounter more negative experiences, people, and results. And there’s not much success in that!

On the flip side, if you focus on what IS working, you will be able to see where you’re getting the best results for your efforts, and will start identifying new ways to get even better results! 

3. Keep a Written Record of Success


Humans have a built-in negativity bias. It’s an evolutionary thing – it helped us stay alert to danger back in the prehistoric days when everything was out to kill us!

In modern times, this negativity bias causes us to feel and remember the bad things much more powerfully than we feel and remember the good things. It really helps to have a written record of what’s working so you can keep track of your positive achievements and remember them at the end of the day.

That’s why I recommend you keep a daily success journal. It’s a great way to focus your attention on the positive and continually stay on track with your vision for your ideal life.

Spend a few minutes each morning writing a list of what you’re grateful for in your life. Then, at the end of the day, write some notes on what went right that day. Be sure to write down everything, no matter how small it may seem. When you train yourself to recognize and acknowledge your own achievements, you are guaranteed to attract even more success into your life.

4. Use Meditation to Cultivate a Positive Mindset


Meditation can be a powerful tool to help you find solutions to problems and shift your attitude so you can attract success sooner rather than later.

Meditation shuts down your judgmental, highly critical brain and allows your unconscious mind to take over – so you can enter a deeper state of inner peace and joy and tap into a higher level of creativity that will help usher in the results you want.

(NOTE: If you’re new to meditation or if you’ve struggled when meditating on your own, my 4-step meditation guide will help you get started using a simple process.

5. Use the Rule of 5


My favorite way to get more done every day is to follow the Rule of Five. Here’s how it works: every day, identify 5 specific things you will accomplish to get closer to your goal – then don’t call it quits for the day until you cross each one off your list.

Not only will this give you a proven structure to ensure you get more accomplished every day, it will also give you a clear sense of what’s actually achievable in a day – and you can round up your goals or scale them back so they help you move forward consistently without exhausting yourself by working until midnight every night.

6. Don’t be Afraid to Step Out of Your Comfort Zone & Take BIG Action


Let’s say you’re doing ALL these things, but you still aren’t happy with your results…

Here’s a question to consider: have you taken any BIG ACTION to launch yourself out of your current situation and closer to the life of your dreams?

You may be taking action – but it might be the same kind of action you’ve ALWAYS taken. If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting the same results you’ve always gotten.

If you want to create a new life for yourself, you have to practice some new behaviors. Shake things up a bit and see if you can take new actions or modify existing ones. And don’t be afraid to do something BIG.

Setting Goals Can Change Your Life

You see, it’s very liberating when you finally realize that you have the power to make your life whatever you want it to be. It’s a wonderful feeling knowing that your success does not really depend on anyone else.

Brian Tracy says that setting SMART goals can have an impact beyond your own life, as well. He suggests they can also be used to motivate your employees and create phenomenal business growth – a claim with which I absolutely agree!

So if you’re looking for one thing to do different today than you did yesterday, make it this: Commit to taking 100% responsibility for every aspect of your life and goal planning. Then choose what it is you want. Decide what actions you’re going to need to take to create it and then take those actions one step at a time.

There are a lot of things you can learn to do to accelerate your success.  But the basics that will move you from where you are to where you want to be are simply this: Decide what you want, take control of your thoughts, visualize what you want, make a plan and then take action. Start with these simple steps and I promise you that you’ll start seeing the results you want. (source)

I tend to see number patterns fairly frequently like 11:11, 4:44 and so on. But lately, I have also started seeing 12:12, which is definitely a new one for me so it caught my attention.

Number patterns carry their own unique meaning and while there are some classic interpretations, I also think that number patterns can be unique to the person and their own journey.

So, when I started seeing 12:12 I tried to tap into my own intuition to see what this may mean for me. Perhaps it was a sign of something new coming into my life? While this resonated with me, I also wanted to investigate further.

The first bit of information I found came from the website Willow Soul–

“According to Merkabah mysticism, 12:12 is a code portal that, when you enter in resonance with it, activates your Merkabic field. When this happens, you are in alignment with the human heart connecting to the Unity Consciousness.”

Now, this really caught my attention, so I did some further research.

Merkaba (also spelled Merkabah) is our “light spirit body” and is an energetic field that surrounds us when we are tapped in to a higher state of consciousness. This energetic field forms the shape of a star tetrahedron and it is believed that this formation of energy allows our light body to travel to higher dimensions.


ˈCHitˌCHat - Page 16 1583

The star tetrahedron is made from two pyramids, one pointing up and one pointing down. The pyramid pointing up helps to connect you to the heavens, whereas the pyramid pointing down helps you to stay grounded in the physical. These pyramid shapes also vibrate and move in opposite directions.

When this spinning Merkaba force field is observed around a person, it is believed that they have activated the ability to travel across different dimensions. This is why the shape of the Merkaba has been referred to as a chariot or mode of transport for our light body.

1212 is believed to be the code that can help to activate this energy, so if you are seeing 1212 it could very well be a sign that your light body is developing and you are raising your level of consciousness to a point where you can perceive outside of the physical reality.

Even though 1212 has come into my consciousness I can’t say that I feel any different! Maybe not yet anyway. But seeing this number pattern has unlocked a lot of new insights.

Even though it appears we live in a 3D world, when we awaken, we actually begin to see that life is simply a reflection of the thought energy of every conscious being on the planet.

Collectively, all of our thoughts shape the world and reality that we live in. But, we each have a responsibility over our own thoughts, for it is our own thoughts that will shape our experience of what reality is.

If our thoughts are shaping our experience of reality, it also means that we can use our thoughts to access other realities and unlock other states of being.

It’s almost similar to dreaming. Every night when we are in a deep state of sleep, part of us “travels” and visits certain people and places and experiences certain things. While we are dreaming, everything feels real.

In the same way that we travel in our dreams, our light bodies can also travel to higher states of consciousness in order to see the world differently and to experience a different type of reality.

The fact that our thoughts create reality is nothing new, however there seems to be a lot of ego mixed up in this idea, which is why this idea has lost some of its power.

It is not about wishing for a car and then seeing it manifest. Instead, it is about aligning our thoughts with our inner self, our higher self, our true self.

When we can align our thoughts with our own personal truth, that is when we can raise our level of consciousness and feel on track with the destiny of our soul.

This state of being can be accessed by those who have awakened, but it can be tricky to stay in this state all the time. This is why the Merkaba is made of up two pyramids pointing in opposite directions. Part of our duty here on earth is to say grounded and connected, but of course, we don’t want to get stuck here.

Because 1212 is believed to be the code that activates the Merkaba, on 12/12 every year, it is believed that a portal opens to help accelerate the formation of this energy field.

Once this energy field exists around you, it is able to lift your light body to higher levels of consciousness, so you can align with unity and oneness, and see that we are all connected.

I am sure there is a lot more to the Merkaba, and I am looking forward to exploring and feeling into it a little more. If you have found this article, there is a good chance your Merkaba is forming too.

Mushrooms as Medicine?

Psychedelics May Be Next Breakthrough Treatment
ˈCHitˌCHat - Page 16 1624

From treating depression to helping manage alcohol addiction, researchers say legal medical “magic mushrooms” have many potential benefits.

Soft lighting. Comfortable furniture. Art decorating the walls. To the untrained eye, this setting appears to be a living room. But it’s not. It’s a research facility specially designed to evoke comfort and ease. A psilocybin therapy session is taking place. On the couch lies a patient. They have eye shades and headphones on. Gentle music is playing. Two members of the research team are present to help guide the session over the course of eight hours. Much of this time will be spent in quiet introspection. Trained medical staff are on-site, should anything unexpected happen. Despite the trappings of normalcy, this therapy session is anything but. Psilocybin, the active ingredient found in “magic” mushrooms, or “shrooms,” is a powerful psychedelic. Despite being about 100 times less potent than LSD, it’s capable of altering perception of space and time, causing visual distortions, euphoria, and mystical experiences. Unlike marijuana, which has seen a dramatic shift both in terms of support of legalization and recognized therapeutic uses, or MDMA, which has grabbed headlines in recent years for its potential to treat PTSD (some researchers believe the drug could see Food and Drug Administration approval as soon as 2021), psilocybin lacks the same degree of cultural cachet. 
And one could be forgiven for thinking of “shrooms” as nothing more than a remnant of the excess of the psychedelic 1960s.
But make no mistake: Psilocybin has a number of potential medical benefits.

The state of psilocybin research

Research has shown psilocybin to have potential to treat a range of psychiatric and behavioral disorders, although it’s yet to receive FDA approval for anything. Its potential indications include depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, quitting smoking, alcohol addiction, cocaine addiction, cluster headaches, and cancer-related or other end-of-life psychological distress. High-profile initiatives have also popped up in recent months in Denver, Colorado, and Oregon to decriminalize psilocybin mushrooms. However, experts say they’re unlikely to pass. Psilocybin mushrooms remain a Schedule I drug according to the Drug Enforcement Agency, meaning they’re classified as having “no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.” Other Schedule I drugs include marijuana, MDMA, and LSD. Yet, despite social stigma and legal red tape, researchers are forging ahead with clinical trials for FDA approval. Dr. George R. Greer, co-founder and president of the Heffter Research Institute, a non-profit research center that focuses on the therapeutic uses of psychedelics, particularly psilocybin, explains his motivations: “Our mission is two-fold: one to do research that helps us understand the mind, the brain, how all that works, and number two, to help reduce suffering through therapeutic use of psychedelics.” The institute is currently focused on two main areas of psilocybin research: addiction and cancer-related psychiatric disorders. Cancer-related psilocybin therapy is considered one of the most promising areas of research for the drug. However, considering the vast number of potential indications for psilocybin, it’s important to keep in mind that the amount of research also varies widely, from single pilot studies to phase II or III approval trials by the FDA. Here’s what the current research says about psilocybin treatment for some potential indications.

Depression

Depression is among the most researched indications for psilocybin therapy. As Healthline previously reported last year, psilocybin therapy was given “breakthrough therapy” designation (a review fast track) by the FDA for the treatment of depression. The Usona Institute, a psychedelic research center, is currently in the planning stages of their phase III trial, which will likely begin this year.

Smoking cessation and other addictions

In a small pilot study from Johns Hopkins University, researchers found that psilocybin therapy significantly improved abstaining from smoking over a 12-month follow-up period.
Matthew Johnson, PhD, associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, led that study. According to him, psilocybin also has potential to treat other substance use disorders, including alcohol and cocaine addiction. “The general idea is that the nature of these disorders is a narrowed mental and behavioral repertoire,” he told Healthline. “So, [psilocybin] in well-orchestrated sessions [has] the ability to essentially shake someone out of their routine to give a glimpse of a larger picture and create a mental plasticity with which people can step outside of those problems.” In fact, a small open-label study on psilocybin and alcohol dependence found that following treatment, both drinking and heavy drinking declined. Researchers in Alabama are also currently conducting trials for psilocybin therapy on cocaine addiction.

Cancer-related psychological distress

“There’ve been some promising preliminary results in such areas such as the treatment of overwhelming existential anxiety in people who are facing the end of life,who have diagnoses of advanced-stage cancer,” Dr. Charles Grob, professor of psychiatry at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine, told Healthline. Grob, who’s also affiliated with the Heffter Research Institute, has studied psilocybin extensively and authored research on the subject, including, among other things, a pilot study in 2011 on psilocybin treatment for anxiety in people with cancer. A randomized, double-blind trial from Johns Hopkins in 2016 found that a single dose of psilocybin substantially improved quality of life and decreased depression and anxiety in people with life-threatening cancer diagnoses. “The thing that we have the most evidence for is cancer-related depression and anxiety. That seems really strong, and I’d be surprised if those results didn’t hold up,” Johnson said, who was part of that research.

Will psilocybin ever be approved by the FDA?

Despite promising research, there’s no realistic timeline for when, or if, psilocybin will ever be approved by the FDA. All three experts interviewed by Healthline stress that the substance can be dangerous for a host of different reasons if administered incorrectly. “It will only be administered in a clinic by specially trained and certified therapists, physicians. It’s never gonna be available out on the street where people can sell it or take too much, or take too many of their pills from a prescription,” Greer said. Psilocybin affects the cardiovascular system and can lead to increased blood pressure or irregular heartbeat. It also has the potential to cause serious and permanent psychological problems. “Psilocybin is a lot more psychologically dangerous than cannabis, and it’s especially dangerous for a small percentage of the population who have had an episode of psychosis or mania, manic episode, or even, say, a close family member whose had those problems, because it can trigger a psychosis or manic episode in a person who is vulnerable to that,” Greer said. And there’s always the chance of a “bad trip,” or negative experience while taking the drug. There are rare but documented cases of individuals jumping to their deaths or otherwise behaving erratically in such a way that endangers themselves or those around them. As Grob puts it: “Taken in uncontrolled settings, honestly, all bets are off. You don’t know what you’re gonna get.” But psilocybin therapy is nothing like taking shrooms at a party. It’s meant to be a meticulously controlled environment to ensure that nothing unexpected happens. “You name the risk, and we have really good mechanisms for addressing it,” Johnson said. He further explained, “There are risks, but they are dramatically reduced in medical research and potentially in approved medical use, and I would argue that those risks and our ability to address them fairs very reasonably compared to many procedures that are routinely used in medicine.” Nonetheless, the safety and efficacy of psilocybin treatment must still be satisfactorily proved to the FDA, which, thus far, it has not. While some are optimistic that psilocybin may follow in the footsteps of MDMA therapy and potentially even have approval within the next 5 to 10 years, its pathway is far from clear and very uncertain. When asked if there’s a realistic timeline for approval, Grob told Healthline, “I don’t think so. Even though the research we’re talking about has by and large been very positive and encouraging, there hasn’t been enough research.” “There needs to be more FDA-approved clinical research with psychedelics,” he added, “exploring both how to optimize their therapeutic potential but also trying to get a better understanding of the range of medical effects, which may be problematic… There’s still some questions that need to be answered.”

I am no longer waiting for a special occasion; I burn the best candles on ordinary days.
I am no longer waiting for the house to be clean; I fill it with people who understand that even dust is Sacred.
I am no longer waiting for everyone to understand me; It’s just not their task
I am no longer waiting for the perfect children; my children have their own names that burn as brightly as any star.
I am no longer waiting for the other shoe to drop; It already did, and I survived.
I am no longer waiting for the time to be right; the time is always now.
I am no longer waiting for the mate who will complete me; I am grateful to be so warmly, tenderly held.
I am no longer waiting for a quiet moment; my heart can be stilled whenever it is called.
I am no longer waiting for the world to be at peace; I unclench my grasp and breathe peace in and out.
I am no longer waiting to do something great; being awake to carry my grain of sand is enough.
I am no longer waiting to be recognized; I know that I dance in a holy circle.
I am no longer waiting for Forgiveness.
I believe, I Believe.

Message Sujet: The power of generative listening   ˈCHitˌCHat - Page 16 EmptyVen 10 Mai - 17:51


The power of generative listening

ˈCHitˌCHat - Page 16 1730

Any time I lead an organizational or leadership storytelling workshop, I split folks into pairs and ask them to share a story with each other. Person ‘A’ goes first and Person ‘B’ is asked to simply listen without interjection. After the exercise, I ask everyone what they noticed about sharing and listening to the stories.

Based on what I’ve heard after facilitating this exercise hundreds of times, one of the most challenging parts is not telling the story, but listening without speaking. This makes a fair bit of sense: most of us have been culturally training to treat conversation like a tennis match. We listen primarily for an opening, a chance to return the volley, to share our own point of view.

What happens when we’re challenged to simply listen, to take in another person’s story without any agenda of our own other than being present?

Based on what I’ve heard and seen, what happens is empathy, compassion, and a bond that forms quickly and with unexpected depth.

According to Otto Scharmer, the author of Theory U, listening happens at four different levels:

Downloading: At this level, we listen from our habits and existing understanding in order to confirm what we already know or think we know. A social media echo chamber is a fantastic example of listening by downloading: we’re simply reinforcing an existing story or worldview. Nothing that contradicts that story finds its way into our brains. Many organizational meetings exist at this level as do many of the conversations we have with friends. For many of us, ‘downloading’ is our default setting.

Factual: At the factual level, there’s room for discordance. We start to notice things that don’t necessarily fit with our point of view or story about the world. A few weeks ago, I had a session with a new client. My guard was down and, given where I met this person and how they presented, I came into the meeting with a set of assumption about who they were and what they sought. Within 10 seconds, this person presented data about themselves that contradicted those assumptions; and suddenly I was listening at a factual level. A window had opened that allowed for the potential of change.

Good science can happen at the factual level, the collection and investigation of conflicting data. But complex change happens at deeper levels, starting with the next level of listening:

Empathic Listening: Empathy is one of the most powerful forces in human history and evolution. It’s responsible for bringing us together in tribes, for bringing an end to interpersonal (and even international) conflicts, and for the success of every Pixar movie made to date. At this level, we’re not just listening at the cognitive level, we’re listening with the heart as an organ of perception. As we open to the feelings, experiences, and perspectives of another human being, we are able to see the situation, and the world, through their eyes. This creates an immediate emotional connection.

Anyone who has ever been moved by a story or felt close to someone after they’ve shared a particularly vulnerable moment has experienced empathic listening. By their very nature, powerful stories invite empathy and, in fact, there’s fascinating research that shows that centuries of evolution have wired our brains to respond to stories by releasing hormones that promote empathy.

So empathy is powerful. But even it is not enough to move into a place of growth, change and development. Which brings us to the fourth level of listening.

Generative Listening: This is listening as a dynamic act of co-creation. When we open our will, letting go of thoughts, expectations, and urges as they come in, listening becomes about much more that what’s being said: it becomes about what’s not being said and about connection with future potential.

At this level, we’re fully present. It’s the type of listening practiced by great coaches, leaders, and friends. Those who listen to more than our words; they listen from a place of holding your highest, most fully realized possibility.

This type of listening is a bit tough to describe, so here are some signs that you’re listening generatively:
- Feelings of warmth moving through your body;
- An increase in energy as you listen, a sense of excitement;
- A feeling that something within you is shifting to a different level;
- You feel more grounded in your sense of Self and purpose.

At the generative level, listening becomes much like a spiritual practice, connecting listener (or listeners) and speaker to something greater than themselves. When we listen generatively, change happens at deep levels. And it happens quickly.

Storytelling is much more than an artform or a communication tactic. It’s a way of being in the world, a way of inviting generative listening and encouraging ourselves and others to move beyond the status quo promoted by simply ‘downloading’ information and into a place of deep presence and co-creation.

As an exercise, take time over the next few days to notice how you’re listening in the world. Make some notes. When are you downloading? How can you move into places of deeper listening? Let me know how it goes!

Thank you to Michael for sharing this article with the Conveners.org community. (source)

Self-inflicted Therapy and the Power of Self-realization

ˈCHitˌCHat - Page 16 1739

“To find a mountain path all by oneself gives a greater feeling of strength than to take a path that is shown.”
~ Karen Horney

It is no easy matter understanding oneself. Self-realization is strenuous. It’s a lengthy process, arduous, painful, existentially upsetting. It’s a collision of agonies smashing into polarities. The self is not a fixed entity but a set of “intrinsic potentialities.” It’s masks all the way down perceiving illusions all the way up. And each individual self is more unique than a fingerprint.

The tricky part is that only you can experience these masks, agonies, polarities and intrinsic potentialities. Nobody else can experience them for you. They are subjective. Your experience of them will always be primary to anyone’s interpretation of them. Not even the best shrink in the world can know them as well as you can.

That’s what makes self-therapy, and the self-realization that comes from it, so important. Therapists are, at best, guides. Self-therapy is what a therapist directs you towards anyway. So, you might as well make that attempt to begin with.

A therapist is good for keeping you on track and preventing you from getting stuck, but there’s nothing saying you cannot learn strategies to do it yourself. That’s where self-therapy come in. That’s where self-inflicted therapy enters the scene to flip all scripts.

It’s a process of dauntless self-realization. It’s taking ownership of your own therapy. It’s a deep understanding of Terence McKenna’s advice: “You have to take seriously the notion that understanding the universe is your responsibility, because the only understanding of the universe that will be useful to you is your own understanding.”

Taking responsibility for understanding the depths of you, especially the way you perceive reality, is a vital step toward overall health and mental stability. But it requires courage. It requires questioning your worldview, your values, your relationships. It requires the ability to admit that you have been wrong about a great many things. No easy task.

Self-inflicted therapy cuts deep. It’s not comforting or pretend-forgiving. It’s ruthless and upsetting. Comfort zones are liabilities. Playing it safe is a psychological handicap. Remaining in the box is a prison sentence.

Self-inflicted therapy has three core strategies. Let’s break them down…

Self-interrogation

“In the act of provoking people to think differently, philosophers make it clear that we are not fated to live within the often-stifling systems of thought that we inherit. We can change the subject.” ~ Raymond Geuss

Self-interrogation is about digging down to the roots of the human condition, particularly your own conditioning. It’s a method that aggressively asks mind-opening, heart-expanding, soul-shocking questions.

It proactively outmaneuvers cognitive dissonance by staying one step ahead of sentimental emotion through a ruthless form of higher reasoning that never settles for answers. Instead, it tears them apart.

From the carnage, it honors what validates universal law and discards what doesn’t. But such honoring is still not an acceptance. Rather, it is a deep consideration for higher probability while still respecting the possibility of wrongness.

Self-interrogation turns everything inside out. It unconventionally twists the conventional by questioning to the nth degree. It nixes notions of certainty. Truth is elusive, but it is less elusive when you’re coming at it from more angles than those that you were conditioned to adhere to.

Solitude and meditation


“I never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude.”

~ Henry David Thoreau

Out beyond the things of man, beyond the status quo agenda, there is a state of intense solitude where you can become so completely isolated from all the layer upon layer of cultural conditioning that you’re able to fully realize the power of being connected to everything. It’s a place where you’re able to shed the superfluity of codependence and fully embrace the power of interdependence.

Heavy from aggrandized civilization, we go into nature seeking medicine. We discover it by simply being present (meditating) and embracing solitude.

In the wild, Truth and Mystery grow together, robustly entangled, speaking a language older than words. When the clanking machinery, blaring car alarms, and whining sirens fade away, our brains get lathered in this mysterious language and Nature’s medicine washes over us.

As Rumi powerfully stated, “There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen.”

Self-overcoming

“Mastery is an asymptote. You can approach it. You can home in on it. You can get really, really close to it. But you can never reach it. Mastery is impossible to realize fully.” ~ Daniel H. Pink

Enlightenment attracts precisely because enlightenment eludes. Like mastery, perfection, and completely understanding the Self, it can never be fully realized. But that’s okay. Because the journey is the thing.

Self-overcoming keeps the discovery of the Self from ever growing stagnant. It constantly overcomes the fixed and rigid self by embracing the flexible and adaptable self. It’s proactive about improving upon who you were yesterday.

It’s taking Nietzsche’s idea of the Overman and running with it. It’s a personalized Fibonacci sequence, where your own development is predicated upon an individualized progressive evolution that will ultimately contribute to the evolution of the species.

Self-overcoming is a vehicle that compels you to become robust and wise despite your inherently fragile and fallible nature. The ego wants to keep you safe in your comfort zone. But self-overcoming tears down that comfort zone and teaches the ego how to become a flexible tool of self-improvement rather than a rigid tool of self-preservation.

Self-overcoming is the daily act of letting your ego know who’s boss. It’s letting your ego know that you are awake to its syrupy placations. And no amount of comfortable coos and warming sentiments are going to lull you back to sleep.

The tables have been turned. In the poker game of the Self, you’ve called your ego’s bluff and now you’re holding all the cards. Your self-preservation has taken a back seat to your self-improvement. There’s an initiation at hand. Your ego is ready to become a mighty tool toward leveraging self-realization into self-actualization.

Synopses

Indigenous communities around the world and in the U.S. resist threats to their sacred places—the original protected lands—in a growing movement to defend human rights and restore the environment.

In this four-part documentary series, native people share ecological wisdom and spiritual reverence while battling a utilitarian view of land in the form of government megaprojects, consumer culture, and resource extraction as well as competing religions and climate change.

Narrated by Graham Greene, with the voices of Tantoo Cardinal and Q’orianka Kilcher, the series exposes threats to native peoples’ health, livelihood, and cultural survival in eight communities around the world. Rare verité scenes of tribal life allow indigenous people to tell their own stories—and confront us with the ethical consequences of our culture of consumption.

Episodes

Pilgrims and Tourists

Around the world, indigenous communities stand in the way of government megaprojects. In the Russian Republic of Altai, traditional native people create their own mountain parks to rein in tourism and resist a gas pipeline that would cut through a World Heritage Site. In northern California, Winnemem Wintu girls grind herbs on a sacred medicine rock, as elders protest U.S. government plans to enlarge one of the West’s biggest dams and forever submerge this touchstone of a tribe.

Profit and Loss

From Papua New Guinea rainforests to Canada’s tar sands, Profit and Loss exposes industrial threats to native peoples’ health, livelihood and cultural survival. In Papua New Guinea, a Chinese government owned nickel mine has violently relocated villagers to a taboo sacred mountain, built a new pipeline and refinery on contested clan land, and is dumping mining waste into the sea. In Alberta, First Nations people suffer from rare cancers as their traditional hunting grounds are stripmined to unearth the world’s third-largest oil reserve. Indigenous people tell their own stories—and confront us with the ethical consequences of our culture of consumption.

Fire and Ice

From Ethiopia to Peru, indigenous customs protect biodiversity on sacred lands under pressure from religious conflicts and climate change. In the Gamo Highlands of Ethiopia, scientists confirm the benefits of traditional stewardship even as elders witness the decline of spiritual practices that have long protected trees, meadows and mountains. Tensions with evangelical Christians over a sacred meadow erupt into a riot. In the Peruvian Andes, the Q’eros, on a pilgrimage to a revered glacier, are driven from their ritual site by intolerant Catholics. Q’eros potato farmers face a more ominous foe: global warming is melting glaciers, their water source. Andes farmers, scientists and visiting Ethiopians struggle to adapt indigenous agriculture to the changing climate.

Islands of Sanctuary

Native Hawaiians and Aboriginal Australians resist threats to their sacred places in a growing international movement to defend human rights and protect the environment. In Australia’s Northern Territory, Aboriginal clans maintain Indigenous Protected Areas and resist the destructive effects of a mining boom. In Hawai`i, indigenous ecological and spiritual practices are used to restore the sacred island of Kaho`olawe after 50 years of military use as a bombing range.

Eindhoven to build "world's first" 3D-printed houses that people will live inside

ˈCHitˌCHat - Page 16 1864

The first house, expected to complete in 2019, will be a single-storey, three-bedroom bungalow. This will be followed by four multi-level homes on the site in Meerhoven, a new region of Eindhoven located west of the city centre, near the airport.

The residences will be produced one by one, to allow the team to learn from each build. To start with, elements will be printed at the university, but the aim is to eventually move all construction to the building site.


ˈCHitˌCHat - Page 16 297


According to the team, the final house will be fully printed and assembled onsite.

Visuals created by Houben & Van Mierlo Architecten show properties that feature curved concrete walls, balcony recesses, and deep-set windows and doors.

"The design of the houses is based on erratic blocks in a green landscape," said the university. "The irregular shape of the buildings can be realised thanks to one of the key features of 3D-printing: the ability to construct almost any shape. »

Numerous 3D-printed houses have been produced in recent years, as researchers continue to develop and refine the technology.
