I Support Obama (Re-post from Aquarius Channelings)

This is a repost from Aquarius  Channelings (link is at the end of the article).

I pray what Obama, and others, are doing now to create change-from every level of society, Occupiers and other protesters, all the way up to those in positions of power whose allegiance is to the Earth and all living beings instead of to the power structure-will be enough. I pray that my copy of Deep Green Resistance will be something to read and think fondly of what we didn’t end up having to do-because change IS coming, NOTHING will stop it-the only question left is will it be quick, will it be simple and reasonably comfortable? Or will it take a lot more sacrifice, and work to get there?

 

I Support Obama

 

 

I have posted this in the ‘Making First Contact’ section because I believe Obama will be very instrumental in bringing disclosure and ‘First’ Contact to us.

“Every person I know who is on the inside, still in black-ops, reveals that there is great hatred of Obama within their ranks because he is NOT working on their side.”- David Wilcock

 “Regardless of celestial origin and current culture, age, skin color, religion, gender, ethnicity, or nation of residency, prior to birth all peoples now on the planet knew the soul who would incarnate as Barack Obama and joyfully agreed to his becoming president of the United States to lead that country and the world into the Golden Age”- Matthew Ward

Friends, there are many at this time who feel dissapointed in President Obama. There are many that feel he has not accomplished what he said he would for the United States, and there are many who send him outright hate on a daily basis. I personally understand the reasons behind disapointment, but pointless hate towards Obama benefits nobody, least of all We The People. You see, Barack Obama is and has always been truly trying to enact real change for the United States, and for the world. The problem is, he is facing extreme opposition from those who have held all of the power for so long. It is not easy for one person to stand up against an entire network of criminals who have had a tight grip on government for a century. These criminals know that the best way to weaken Obama and keep him from enacting real change is to get the public against him, and that is exactly what they have done.

These criminals have used the ‘news’ media networks that they own to constantly slam Obama, to use their age-old propaganda to sway the public on an issue. Propaganda has been their main method of control over people for a century now. Think about it. How did cannabis become illegal? Propaganda. How did we get tricked into senseless war after senseless war for decades now? Propaganda. They use fear to get what they want. They use fear to manipulate us, and make us think a certain way. It is the exact same with Obama. Remember the healthcare debate ‘coverage’?

They were actually trying to convince people that with universal healthcare for all, their grandparents would actually be put before ‘death panels’ that decide whether they live or die! I mean come on people! Clearly senseless fear-mongering. I remember they also used illusory ‘polls’ that stated that over half the country were against Obama Care, only to have those ‘polls’ exposed as hoaxes! People, I pray for those who are so anti-Obama to wake up and realize they are being manipulated by the very system they rebel against. It is one thing to feel disappointed in Obama for so far not being able to break through the seemingly invincible power structure of those who keep us down, but it is entirely another thing to accuse him of being one of those who keep us down. He certainly is not. There are so many people who send Obama extreme hate on a daily basis, you have to realize this weakens him and keeps him from being able to enact real change! Those who manipulate others to do their hateful bidding know this.

I leave you all with this song by Wyclef Jean, please listen, truly listen to the words as they demonstrate the power these shadowy cabals have over government:

If you look back in history you will notice that there were a few presidents who attempted (and in some cases succeeded) to enact real change and expose real truth to the public, and they ended up dead, usually before their terms ended. Coincidence? You decide.

Openhearted Rebellion

Don’t despair if life appears rather wacky, crazy, and bizarre as we spiral into the transfiguring energetic templates of October. We are about to enter a time/space of adventure filled to the brim with new possibilities, new connections, and new ways of being Self-sufficient and Powerful. The month of October is filled with potent positive vibrations. Your current Self has not been imprinted with the intensity of this much depth, open-ness and space for nearly a year. This “space” inside of you is the potent, undiluted and alive energy that reveals the Truth of yourself.

Until the 18th there will be support from the elemental nature of Universality. Fire, Air, Water and Earth are aligning in an encompassing manner to stabilize your Inner Core Self as it expresses in form through the world at large. These finer vibrations will…

Mankind as a species have for too been long been harbouring the thought that they are unable to do anything but follow in the footsteps of their forefathers. In other words, for many, the thought of opening up to the idea of not being the sole living sentient beings in the known universe is to them mere fantasy, as they consider themselves to be the pinnacle of creation. And as such, nothing can be done without them being the instigator for it. And they also see that as their entitled right, as they see the rest of the world surrounding them as their domain. But now, as more and more of you are starting to wake up to the fact that mankind is not alone in this vast space, the idea of sovereignty over other living beings is also starting to fall apart, and rightly so, as you are no…

Native American Spiritual Truths in the New Age

This is a re-blog from the blog called “As the Teaching Drum Turns” at
http://astheteachingdrumturns.blogspot.com/2007/04/in-their-own-words-indigenous-activists.html

This is a topic I have often tried to explain and share in various groups, with various amounts of success. I was very impressed with the the clarity and ease of reading of this post. The author has done an amazingly better job than I have ever managed!

If you are interested in Native American Spirituality, please read the entire post below. It will help you to weed out the charlatans and creeps and find your own real path of the heart.

Everyone on Earth is a descendant of indigenous people-even if you are 100% European! Colonization is a plague that started a lot longer ago than 500 years, and it has done exactly the same thing to every group of people it happens to-it is brought in with violence, maintained with mind programming and purposeful impoverishment(financial, spiritual and emotional) and this pattern has remained precisely the same from Mesopotamia to the Black Hills, to the current enactments in South America and the Pacific.

So if you look back a bit you might find your own ancestors had some beliefs very much like various Native groups here, no matter where your ancestors lived-but those beliefs might even have some details that feel closer to your own heart, because they are literally in your bones.

In Their Own Words: Indigenous Activists Challenge New Age Frauds
Monday, April 09, 2007

These are a few highlights from websites with in depth information on the issues surrounding the cultural theft that is white New Agers’ appropriation of Indigenous spiritual traditions. Check ’em out! Most of these writer-activists are Native American and speak from years of experience with Anglo American racism. These articles make an excellent primer before going on to read about the fraud that is Tamarack Song.

Wikipedia – Plastic Shamans
> Though the term “plastic shaman” originated among Native American and First Nations activists, and is most often applied to people posing as Native American medicine men & women, the term has also been applied to those posing as other types of traditional and alternative healers. People who have been referred to as “plastic shamans” include fraudulent spiritual advisors, seers, psychics, or other practitioners of non-traditional modalities of spirituality and healing who are operating on a fraudulent basis.
>
> Critics of those who have been called plastic shamans believe one danger is that students who come to learn from plastic shamans may be exposing themselves to physical, as well as psychological and emotional risk. This is because the methods used by a fraudulent teacher may have been invented, “adapted” or stolen from other cultures and taught without reference to a real tradition, or to the precautions such a tradition would normally have in place in regard to sacred ceremonies and guidelines for ethical behaviour.
Wikipedia – NAFPS (New Age Frauds and Plastic Shamans)
> Begun in 2001, NAFPS has provided a forum for those concerned about fraud, deceit, money hunger, sexual abuse, racism, control, hunger for power and ego, and cult-like tendencies of the New Age movement and pseudo “shamans.” They investigate and seek to warn the public about impostors and exploiters posing as Native medicine people or elders. They believe there are more than two hundred imposters currently posing as Cherokee medicine people alone. Taking account of all five hundred Native nations in the US, this indicates the massive scope of the problem. There have been eight unsuccessful attempts to shut them down, threats of lawsuits, stalkers, identity thieves, libel campaigns, and even death threats.
Our Red Earth
> THE DISSEMINATION OF DEATH: TEACHINGS
> A typical “new age” collective does not usually openly declare that anything whatsoever is being “taught.” This is to ensure a surface appearance of benevolence. If nothing is being “taught,” nothing is being “exploited,” is the reasoning one often finds within these communities. Additionally, this professed lack of teaching decreases the likelihood of someone quizzing and potentially exposing the community leader as a charlatan.
>
> Instead, “new age” community leaders instruct/mislead their followers by calling the dissemination of their inaccuracies “sharing.” They typically disguise the purpose of their community by describing it as a place to “share and discuss” (the leader’s interpretations of) American Indian spirituality.

> – Edit –

> THE PLAYERS
> A “new age” community typically includes a Leader and three divisions, these being Co-Leaders, Participants, and Readers. All of these divisions are guided by the Leader, so with him we shall begin.

New Age Commercialization of Native American Spirituality
> Lisa Aldred
>
> Consuming Native American Spirituality
>
> Commercial exploitation of Native American spiritual traditions has permeated the New Age movement since its emergence in the 1980s. Euro-Americans professing to be medicine people have profited from publications and workshops. Mass quantities of products promoted as “Native American sacred objects” have been successfully sold by white entrepreneurs to a largely non-Indian market. This essay begins with an overview of these acts of commercialization as well as Native Americans’ objections to such practices. Its real focus, however, is the motivation behind the New Agers’ obsession and consumption of Native American spirituality. Why do New Agers persist in consuming commercialized Native American spirituality? What kinds of self-articulated defenses do New Agers offer for these commercial practices? To answer these questions, analysis from a larger social and economic perspective is needed to further understand the motivations behind New Age consumption.
>
> In the so-called postmodern culture of late consumer capitalism, a significant number of white affluent suburban and urban middle-aged baby-boomers complain of feeling uprooted from cultural traditions, community belonging, and spiritual meaning. The New Age movement is one such response to these feelings. New Agers romanticize an “authentic” and “traditional” Native American culture whose spirituality can save them from their own sense of malaise. However, as products of the very consumer culture they seek to escape, these New Agers pursue spiritual meaning and cultural identification through acts of purchase. Although New Agers identify as a countercultural group, their commercial actions mesh quite well with mainstream capitalism. Ultimately, their search for spiritual and cultural meaning through material acquisition leaves them feeling unsatisfied. The community they seek is only imagined, a world conjured up by the promises of advertised products, but with no history, social relations, or contextualized culture that would make for a sense of real [End Page 329] belonging. Meanwhile, their fetishization of Native American spirituality not only masks the social oppression of real Indian peoples but also perpetuates it.
White Americans play ‘Indian,’ professor says
> By JODI RAVE
> Lincoln Journal Star

> – Edit –
>
> Organizations from fraternal orders, to the Boy Scouts, to athletic teams and their fans have succumbed to acting out imagined Indian roles.
>
> Indian people have been both empowered and villainized as a result, said [Philip] Deloria. This paradox powers Deloria’s book.
>
> “There is this simultaneous embracing of Indians, which allows Americans to make claims of American identity. But at the same time, in order to make a real physical nation, they have to dispossess those Indians,” he said.
>
> One of the best examples in “Playing Indian” examines the 1830s federal policy of removing native people from their Eastern U.S. homelands and sending them to Indian territory in Oklahoma.
>
> Indian role-playing soon broke out in those areas from which the Indians were removed, Deloria said. “The dynamic at work is to get rid of Indians; then you become Indian.” The desire to know Indians peaked in the 1950s when non-Indians sought knowledge of Indian culture directly from Indians. Those days are gone, he said.

> “Today it’s all about reading books (on Indians) and then working it out with a buddy. Books are personal and individual. They can be interpreted any way you want.”
Spiritual Commodification and Misappropriation
> What Native People Want You To Understand
> Compiled by Mariah Jones
>
> There is a disinformation campaign in progress in Sonoma County to undermine Native peoples’ nationwide efforts to protect their ceremonial processes from abuse. The promulgators would have you believe that only a few “militant” Indians are concerned about this exploitation by those who have no real knowledge of the deep inner meaning inherent in these ceremonies. The truth is that the overwhelming majority of Native people DO object to this phenomenon.
>
> If you stand with Indian people, then you respect their moral right to decide under which circumstances their ceremonies will be “shared” with non-Indians. Please read the following statements by Native people. They are spiritual leaders, authors, attorneys, anthropologists, scholars, activists, educators and tribal leaders. Though they represent just a small percentage of those who have spoken out on this issue, the concepts presented will give you some idea of the perspective you are being asked to consider.
>
> “What’s at issue here is the same old question that Europeans have always posed with regard to American Indians, whether what’s ours isn’t somehow theirs. And, of course, they’ve always answered in the affirmative. Now, being spiritually bankrupt themselves, they want our spirituality as well. So, they make up rationalizations to explain why they’re entitled to it.”
What Genocide Has Done For Me

> Sports Teams
>
> Native Americans are used in advertising and as sports team names. We are mocked and made fun of so a few non-Indians can amass great amounts of wealth. These stereotypes and caricatures have a dehumanizing effect. By “dehumanizing” I mean: to make other than human of that which is human. What dehumanizing does is make it easier for humans to do inhuman things to their fellow human beings. If you don’t consider Indians to be a people, it makes it easier to attempt to separate us from our remaining lands – which is genocide. When Indians protest these names and advertising, people don’t care because we have been dehumanized in the eyes of most people through the use of advertising and sports team names. Advertising and sports team names are a tool of genocide.

Plastic Medicine Men and White America’s
Desperate Search for Native Spirituality.
> “They’re trying to find their own memory,” says John Trudell. “If you get right down to the reality of it, what are white people? White people are the descendants of tribes also. The civilizing process is to erase the tribal or ancestral memory. It’s just that the erasing of their tribal memory started 3,000 years ago. For us it started 500 years ago. If you look at most Caucasian people, they don’t even remember their Great Grandparents. They don’t know what their spiritual perceptions of reality were, their practices, or how they lived with the earth.”
>
> The other side of the coin is a tangle of self-deception for white colonizers, now trying to appropriate the spirituality of the very same people they’ve colonized. Western culture was built upon shame and guilt of the natural world. Whites descended from tribes and barbaric societies, which Christianity smashed down to create a controlled atmosphere devoid of darkness and the unknown.
>
> “The so-called “Barbarians”-the non-Christianized Indigenous believing peoples of Europe-had to be conquered, subordinated, indoctrinated and transformed into the opposite of themselves first, before you had the critical mass-the core entity that allows for this exportation of the same dynamic to the rest of the planet,” says Ward Churchill.
