    The Coconut Revolution

    The Bouganvilleans are a plucky and courageous folk. I was awe-inspired by their abilities to initially fight off a large mining corporation, the Australian government and the Papua New Guinea government using only sticks and stones and bows and arrows. They fought fiercely for the love of their land, for the love of independence and for the love of their people.

    The Australian and Papua New Guinea government set up a blockade to bring these people to their knees but instead of being brought to their knees, the exact opposite happened. The people of Bouganville thrived. They created the first eco revolution.

    At the time of filming for this documentary, every villager was self-sufficient. They say that necessity is the mother of invention. Well, these folk took that to a whole new level with the most incredible innovations and improvisations. As the narrator so aptly commented, they made something out of nothing.

    Joe Dispenza's book, You are the Placebo was not my first introduction to the Placebo effect but I was profoundly affected by Joe's personal story and by what he did to heal himself.

    Don't let the title of this video fool you. It brought alive for me, the importance of sharing everything we have, the possibility for different ways of living and the importance of true community. Home really is where the heart is.

    Fire the Grid

    Shelley Yates had a life changing experience when she and her son had a near-death experience. It is something that we Avalonians are used to hearing about. However, how this changed her life, what was happening whilst she was going through her near-death experience and the miracles she and her son experienced still sends shivers down my spine whenever I think about it.

    Fire the grid is a story about empowering ourselves and each other, the miracles that occur when we lead by example and a return to wholeness. Song and dance is mentioned

    This documentary about the Way Finders is absolutely spectacular. The ancient art of navigation has been brought back to life by a group of dedicated Hawaiians. Polynesian's of yore were able to map thousands of kilometres of islands; reading the waves and the stars as they traversed the oceans with an accuracy that is astonishing. These were a people who were at one with Nature.

    The Man Who Lost his Body

    I live at the edge all day every day

    Ian Waterman was just 19 years old when he was struck down by a virus in 1971. The virus affected his entire body. The nerves which once told his body what it was doing were so damaged from the neck down that he could move his limbs but he just couldn't tell them what to do.

    He was pronounced as 'incurable' and was sent home in a wheelchair.

    But Ian had an indomitable spirit. He was determined to walk again and he set himself a gruelling schedule.

    Ian began to sense that the solution might lie in some hidden part of his mind. He had a hunch that if he could visualise a movement, he might by sheer force of concentration make his body perform it...


    Using powers of visualisation, his eyes would have to tell his limbs what they were doing."

    He had to forge a new link between mind and muscle. For many weeks, he couldn't sit up in bed. He had to teach himself how to recruit the stomach muscles to enable him to sit up.

    Ian has made an unprecedented recovery - at the time of the video there were only 10 people in the world who had this disorder.

    The only way that Ian can walk is if he looks down at his feet. If the lights go out, he goes down. Every movement he makes has to be anticipated, all day, every day.


    He said, "Every day is like running a marathon."

    This guy is un****ing believable. John Plant doesn't live in the wild and only does this for a hobby but what a hobby! He first came to my attention when I was learning how to slake lime and looking for an alternative to cement. The only tools he has are the ones that he has made from his local surrounds in the Australian bush. When we are immersed in nature, the divine intelligence of the universe reveals itself to us.

    In this highly engaging and revealing video, Penelope introduces this presentation by saying that we have thirty to fifty thousand chemicals in our bodies that our grandparents didn't have.

    In 2012, when this presentation was made, 1 in 70 boys were diagnosed with autism. Zach Bush more recently said that we are now on schedule for 1 in every 3 boys to have autism by 2025.

    This was my first deep dive into understanding how the chemical atrazine has affected wildlife, why and how it is potentially wreaking havoc with our hormones now, and how it may affect our future generations.

    Dear Friends, this is a temporary copy of my newly inserted explanatory post #1.

    ~~~

    A Mods' Announcement:

    This is a new thread, originally created by having moved a bunch of posts in reply to Constance's very own Constance's Empowerment Portal.

    The reason we did this (having consulted Constance herself) was simply to keep that thread 100% for Constance's empowerment posts only. So we've adjusted things so that only she can now post there.

    This isn't to diminish anyone's valuable, high quality replies, all of which are now here. It's simply so as not to dilute the thread. There was always the risk that Constance's own posts might be at least a little lost among a possible flood of discussion from others.

    Constance wants to sincerely thank everyone for their support, feedback, and comments.
    That's important. She understands (as do we) that this thread-split makes replying to specific posts a little cumbersome, but we do think it's for the best.

    If it turns out somehow not to be the best thing, we can always adjust things again, as it's a new forum experiment. We've never done this before — for anyone, ever!

    But Constance's personal empowerment archive is so exceptional, and she herself is so exceptional in how much she always gives to everyone around her, that we do think this is the very best thing to do.

    Great thread, Constance.

    I posted a shorter version on the Here and Now thread, with a shout-out to onawah for her post.

    Here's a short intro and a review by Alexandra Bruce of Forbidden Knowledge:

    Richard Grannon:
    “Hopefully, these thoughts will help you assert your cognitive boundaries and will help you to insulate yourself to a some degree during the storm."

    “If you’re going to do something naughty, I don’t think you can get away with it in the same way anymore. So what do you do? You level up. You go meta-, instead of trying to deceive people and work behind their backs, as to what it is you’re really doing, it’s way more efficient to just confuse them about what’s right and what’s wrong. Cognitive dissonance, nobody knows right from wrong. The really clever thing that they’ve done, the evil thing that they’ve done is the slow encroachment of the boundaries.”
    The CIA did this - Alice in Wonderland Technique (10 min)



    Reviewed by Alexandra Bruce of Forbidden Knowledge

    ALICE IN WONDERLAND TECHNIQUE: THE POWER OF APPLIED CONFUSION

    May 24, 2020
    [article & hyper links]
    "On May 12th, Anthony Fauci testified before the Senate that reopening the economy too quickly could lead to “suffering and death that could be avoided [that] could even set you back on the road to…economic recovery.”

    On May 23rd, Anthony Fauci appeared to reverse course when he told CNBC that the stay-at-home orders could end up causing “irreparable damage” and “I don’t want people to think that any of us feel that staying locked down for a prolonged period of time is the way to go.”

    This about-face triggered tweets of exasperation. Then I saw Amazing Polly’s tweet that what Fauci did was an example of the “Alice in Wonderland Technique”.

    I’ve heard of Alice in Wonderland – but a technique by that name? This sent me down a rabbit hole for which I’m grateful, because for the past three years, I’ve been talking about the “psychological civil war” being waged against us, not knowing that the orchestrated gaslighting we’ve been subjected to is a scaled-up version of what was originally developed as an interrogation technique.

    In other words, what we’ve been being put through is literally torture and the technique described in “Alice in Wonderland: The Power of Applied Confusion”, a chapter starting on page 129 of a manual entitled, ‘EDUCING INFORMATION – Interrogation: Science and Art’, published by the National Defense Intelligence College in 2006, citing a 1963 torture manual entitled, “KUBARK Counterintelligence Interrogation Manual, Human Resource Exploitation Training Manual,” based on CIA research, much of it conducted through the MK ULTRA program but some of it going all the way back to the 1350s, to the work of Nicholas Eymerich, Inquisitor General of Aragon, Spain.

    In this video, Richard Grannon does a good job explaining the details of this torture technique that I feel could help us to cope with the madness of COVID-19. When we know that it’s called Alice in Wonderland and that it incorporates Gregory Bateson’s double-bind theory of Schizophrenia, scaled-up to the level of a global psyop, it can help us release ourselves from its thrall.
    Grannon explains:
    “You bring the person to be interrogated into the room, and you have the three interrogators immediately to start to badger them…with nonsensical questions. The pitch and the tone and the pacing of their questions will not match the subjects which they’re covering. Often times, the subjects that they’re asking the person being interrogated about are nonsensical. They go nowhere, they mean nothing.

    “The purpose stated in the interrogation technique is not just to obliterate the normal. The purpose is also to replace that which is normal, with the mindbogglingly bizarre. So the person goes into a state of deep trauma that is so awful, they would rather give up their secrets and return to a reality that makes sense, than have to continue with more days [of this]. It takes days for them to crack, usually.”

    To me, this describes the antics seen in the unrelenting #FakeNews, the Mueller Investigation and the fake impeachment, concomitant with things like #MeToo and the transgender putsch that have become the themes of this era.

    Christine Blasey Ford, Jussie Smollett and the media crucifixion of Nick Sandmann were illogical orchestrated psyops designed to badger everyone into agreement, in order to just make it stop.

    We’ve known that this was unconventional warfare but knowing that it’s called the Alice in Wonderland technique empowers you to identify it when it’s happening, to help you distance yourself from the fragmentation that it is attempting to induce.

    Grannon likens the psyop currently being unleashed upon the global populace (he recorded this last October) to 9/11, which he believes would be much harder to pull off today, with so many people carrying smartphones at all times.

    He says, “If you’re going to do something naughty, I don’t think you can get away with it in the same way anymore. So what do you do? You level up. You go meta-, instead of trying to deceive people and work behind their backs, as to what it is you’re really doing, it’s way more efficient to just confuse them about what’s right and what’s wrong. Cognitive dissonance, nobody knows right from wrong. The really clever thing that they’ve done, the evil thing that they’ve done is the slow encroachment of the boundaries.”

    Hopefully, these thoughts will help you assert your cognitive boundaries and will help you to insulate yourself to a some degree during the storm."
    Thanks for that Paula I hadn't seen it!! I tend to mostly mind my own business at the moment unless something comes my way, or I am supporting someone in living their highest truth.
    It's a good video. To put it simply: everybody's being gaslighted.
    The only place a perfect right angle ever CAN be, is the mind.

    A Mods' Announcement:

    This is a new thread, originally created by having moved a bunch of posts in reply to Constance's very own Constance's Empowerment Portal.

    The reason we did this (having consulted Constance herself) was simply to keep that thread 100% for Constance's empowerment posts only. So we've adjusted things so that only she can now post there.

    This isn't to diminish anyone's valuable, high quality replies, all of which are now here. It's simply so as not to dilute the thread. There was always the risk that Constance's own posts might be at least a little lost among a possible flood of discussion from others.

    Constance wants to sincerely thank everyone for their support, feedback, and comments.
    That's important. She understands (as do we) that this thread-split makes replying to specific posts a little cumbersome, but we do think it's for the best.

    If it turns out somehow not to be the best thing, we can always adjust things again, as it's a new forum experiment. We've never done this before — for anyone, ever!

    But Constance's personal empowerment archive is so exceptional, and she herself is so exceptional in how much she always gives to everyone around her, that we do think this is the very best thing to do.

    Thanks Bill. Those are very kind words. I am very grateful to you and the mods for initiating this idea. When I was modding, there were always a lot of great ideas shared and talked about so I'm really glad that I could help you bring one of those ideas to life! Plus, I'll admit it, I'm a bit of an experimenter myself at heart. I'm always open to new ideas and suggestions, and I'm always more than willing to trying out new things.

    As you said Bill, if what has been initiated here doesn't serve others in the highest possible way, we can always adjust things again. There is nothing to lose and everything to gain.

    Folks, from my heart, I just want to say that I am more than grateful for all the inspirations and for everything that has been shared so far by your wonderful selves. Thank you, and keep up the great work! I really look forward to sharing in all of the inspirations that you have for whenever we share an inspiration, or when we become inspired, everyone benefits in the most unimaginable ways.

    It's a good video. To put it simply: everybody's being gaslighted.
    I have been seeing the toll of gaslighting. People are literally feeling torn apart by internal dissonance based on "abstract" info. I am aware that this is intentional and a thick tangled grid in which we may easily wrapped around and ensnared. I have been a part of seeking info all my life. I more than most love "knowledge" but I am as sure as I can be that the internal pathways of my neurocognitive landscape MUST be resurfaced.

    I have loved to watch and hear SO MANY presentations of various kinds. It is like drinking... one drink leads to another (when addicted). I am sure that watching one more will not make any difference as to my ability to make sense of my reality BUT part of me believes maybe THAT next SEGMENT has the "answer"? I really feel compulsively fixated on an idea that "out there" I will find an answer FINALLY. My own compulsion to seek "more" info attaches me to an Eregore which IMO is deadly.

    In this fascinating video, there is a test that was conducted by CBC/Harvard back in 2016 that could potentially reveal unconscious racial biases. I went looking for the test because I was curious as to what was involved in the test, and if possible, I wanted to take the test.

    I didn't feel that I had any unconscious biases, after all, I had grown up in a very multicultural family and community. However, maybe this test would reveal something about myself that was hidden even to me and if so, by bringing direct awareness to this, I could understand myself better?

    So just for fun, I took the test. If you want to do the test yourself, you can remain anonymous. You don't need to register your email address.
