The Oracle Report Tuesday, December 24, 2013 – Wednesday, December 25, 2013

image

Tuesday: Disseminating Moon Phase: sharing, demonstration, distribution: Moon in Virgo

Wednesday: Third Quarter Moon Phase: realign, revise, take responsibility: Moon in Libra

Diamond Sky Dakinis Rule This Lunar Month, Not The Mahavidyas

On Tuesday, we complete the Disseminating phase of the Disseminating time of year – the optimum time for sharing, expressing, giving, and receiving. Messages, information, inspiration, solutions, feedback, and insights fall like snowflakes.

Tuesday and Wednesday’s energy works in tandem. Whatever is imprinted or built into Tuesday’s energy (through mindsets, emotional states, intentions, events) finds its way into Wednesday’s energy. A “splitting” or “divergence” results on Wednesday, creating divisions. We see how some are controlled and controlling (intimidating) and some are free and freeing (loving).

If you find yourself involved in the controlled/controlling/intimidating experience, don’t engage the aggression, but if it comes to defending yourself or your position in some way, do so from the stance of the spiritual warrior. Consider if this is something you really want to put energy and effort into. If so, remain in your heart center, firmly grounded in place. Be respectful and recognize that nothing need take you off that stance. The outcome is not measured by success in changing someone’s mind; it is measured by whether or not you were swayed off center and ground by relying on others’ reactions. Stay true to yourself. Remember that old values are dissolving and that the return of the sacred masculine is rebalancing and rectifying things. We are witnessing this right before our eyes. Massive transformation and change is happening in the world.

The intense astrological energies I’ve been highlighting over the last several days drive anger, fear of change, fear of the unknown, relationship issues, accidents, and aggression into situations. We want to opeate above all of that. To do this, we strive for peace of heart that comes from watching falling snowflakes. Watching snowflakes transports us to another mindscape where we are still and the heart and mind can unite. The inner masculine and feminine merge here.

So as we walk through our lives and are engaged in whatever activities the next couple of days holds, we will be like the deer in this photograph, standing amidst the falling flakes, accruing the wisdom on our antlers, immersed in the scene yet somehow offset from it and somewhat invisible. We stand in the middle of power. Via frequency resonation, we come together through this endeavor and through our numbers, imprint and infuse peace and harmony into the energy. It’s a worthy endeavor.

They have figured out I am not a threat to them.

Karen Doonan – Manipulation in Human Society – 12-21-13

Thank you!

Higher Density Blog

Karen Doonan

http://truthcodes.wordpress.com/2013/12/21/manipulation-and-its-role-in-human-society/

GFP Commentary: The Mind is the Programming=Illusion(The source of All Fear,Pain and Suffering of Humanity, Not Real). The Balanced Right/Left Brain and Heart are Real.The Only True Reality there is it’s called: LOVE EVERYWHERE PRESENT .Everything else is Illusion.

It may seem a very obvious behaviour but manipulation is a tool of the old 3d earth, many in your waking human life experience may be trying to exert some sort of manipulation in order to keep you within the LOOP of the old 3d earth energetic frequencies. For within the old 3d earth the human race was TAUGHT to behave in certain ways in order to get their “needs met”. This is highly distorted and the New Earth frequencies are running extremely high at this time in order to ILLUMINATE that which needs to be dissolved. Manipulation is a teaching that is ingrained within the human race…

‘Sticker Shock’ over Obamacare Bolsters Single-Payer Argument

Thank you for posting this. I just read David Wilcock’s recent book The Synchronicity Key. He explained in the book that aside from oil the big industry owned and controlled by the cabal/illuminati/1% that has kept them in murder and central chemicals despite all the backroom deals meant to cut off their cash flow is big pharmaceutical and other huge health care corporations.
it looks a lot like Obama HAS been fighting them the whole time only it wasn’t the ways we expected.

Interestingly the same mega corporations that own big pharma also own big Ag. (ie Monsanto, GMOs etc) and most significant they also own the majority of the media.

I feel that as we retool our society and personal interactions toward love, compassion, support and care for one another and all living beings this will naturally starve the monsters of energy, money and support.

Much like when we feed the soil our plants grow strong and healthy and the weeds don’t proliferate as well.:-)

New reporting by AP underscores systemic problems with healthcare system based on for-profit insurance model

– Jon Queally, staff writer

As the political uproar surrounding the Affordable Care Act has played out over recent months, one single fact remains: the private insurance model—on which the law widely known as Obamacare is based—is more complicated, more expensive, and provides less coverage than a simple, “everybody in/nobody out,” single-payer model that almost every other advanced country in the world enjoys.

And even within the debate about whether or not Obamacare is a “step forward” or a “step back” for healthcare delivery in the U.S., what’s become increasingly clear—as was predicted by progressive critics of the Obamacare model—is that though portions of the law undoubtedly improve the kinds of coverage that some people receive, others are still excluded from the system entirely and…

Headlines of the day II: EconoPoliFukuFail

Thank you for posting so much information every day. I am in awe of the research skills of the blogger eats shoots and leaves (as well as the sense of humour so obvious in that blog title! 🙂

I feel we need to be aware of what is going on but also aware that the negative outcomes are not set in stone by the facts.

We can affect the outcomes!

Peak oil and climate change are two heartening areas for us positive thinkers simply because so many viable solutions and creative responses already exist for both-and many like Transition Towns, reforesting initiatives and widespread permaculture implementation are already well underway.

Hiding from or cowering in fear of are not the only respondent the masses of unpleasant news and facts in our current world.

Think about it-we have already survived and navigated living in the most horrifyingly stupid, violent, backwards system (ie colonized society) for our entire lives.

We can do ANYTHING!

We did that-and most of us even managed to retain our basic moral fiber and essential love and compassion for all living beings within a culture rooted in a strongly amoral hierarchy maintained thru mind programming, violence and enforced poverty.

eats shoots 'n leaves

Another eventful day, but especially notable is a global alert that is, if anything optimistic, according to another petroleum geologist of our acquaintance. From The Guardian:

Former BP geologist: peak oil is here and it will ‘break economies’

Industry expert warns of grim future of ‘recession’ driven ‘resource wars’ at University College London lecture

A former British Petroleum (BP) geologist has warned that the age of cheap oil is long gone, bringing with it the danger of “continuous recession” and increased risk of conflict and hunger.

At a lecture on ‘Geohazards’ earlier this month as part of the postgraduate Natural Hazards for Insurers course at University College London (UCL), Dr. Richard G. Miller, who worked for BP from 1985 before retiring in 2008, said that official data from the International Energy Agency (IEA), US Energy Information Administration (EIA), International Monetary Fund (IMF), among other sources, showed that conventional oil…

Magick Wands and the Flu

The first time I tried to reblog this it would not work.

When someone sees the need to block us from sharing certain information I immediately feel that information must be important.

While I was born with disabilities and have been ill much of the time since childhood, I often wonder how much vaccines affected me.

I’m sure most people have heard both the for and against on vaccines and autism so I won’t belabor it.

One thing opened my eyes to the possibilities that vaccines are not as safe as we are told.

In 1993 after almost a decade of constant illness I had a long period of what we called remission. I was ecstatic to be able to DO things like everyone else. Skating, swimming, dancing-for the first 8 months 93 was an amazing year.

Then, entering university required a vaccine. I tried medical waiver but failed to get it approved despite previous serious reactions. So not wanting to forgo an education and my hopes of a non-cripple life and feeling so healthy I took it.

Directly after the shot I started to feel unwell; feverish, nauseated, muscle pains, rotten awful headache.
It only got worse til I was curled up on my boyfriend’s living room floor in so much pain I considered calling an ambulance (I grew up on a farm where machete wounds were considered no big deal and I once set and reset my own broken hand repeatedly because my only transportation was a bicycle in a town with rare curb cuts-so considering an ambulance for me is like 6 inches from death).

My “recovery” was so incremental and slow that I lost many classes the entire first 5 years at university and didn’t finish undergrad degree for almost a decade.

Perhaps my experience like so many others is “anecdotal” but that anecdote is my life now being somewhere different than it might have been had my fragile health not been shattered by a pointless requirement.

I highly doubt the student body was in dire danger of a measles mumps or rubella epidemic-even had I not already received ALL the required vaccines in early childhood. ( the documentation was too old / old style).

My suspicions grew when I discovered that homeopathic vaccines were the original method and are as effective tho not at all dangerous .

Other than purposefully making people sick why the hell require the preservative laden side effect rampant form when the other is easily done?

Laura Bruno's Blog

Note: I tried to publish this with the original article title: “Pregnant Nurse Fired for Refusing Toxic Flu Shot,” but WordPress wouldn’t let me post it. Now, isn’t that special? Move along, folks, nothin’ to see here. We’ll see if this revised title and some alternate spelling make it past the online censors. In all seriousness, this increasing prospect of m@ndatory v@ccination is the primary reason I bought a magick wand and committed to learning magickal self-defense.

M@ndatory v@ccination is happening in hospitals around the country, as well as in preschools and day cares in NYC. In other school systems, students are vaccinated with the debilitating or killing Gardasil vaccine — without parental consent or knowledge! I realize that magick may seem like an irrational defense; however, at least it cannot be effectively banned or controlled, since most of it occurs through visualization, working with energies and the OtherRealm…
