    I tried to stop a murder Paula this last week, from "doctor" created morphine overdose. The patient was not given an opportunity to use a morphine pump. She was forcibly shot in her butt with a fatal dose of morphine, not able to regain consciousness or have her say. She was quite lucid before being "murdered" by doctor and did not want to be forcibly held against her will.

    A N Y O N E if they submit to checking themselves into a medical hospital runs the risk of being murdered and the doctors W I L L get away with it. That is the sad and sorry fact these days.

    If we allow this it will only get worse, not better. A monster is a monster is a monster, even if it wears a nice pretty white robe with initials above the pocket. They are what they are. AND they will not change, and it will only get worse.
    Bob, hopefully your friend's account will be seen by many. I was going to add a video but it’s no longer available called, “Rosalind Peterson: Steps To Protect Yourself, Or A Loved One From harm When Hospitalized“.

    Rosalind Peterson’s 99 year old mom had to go to the hospital because she was having dizzy spells after she tripped and fell. They ran the usual minimum battery of tests and everything came back perfect right down to her cholesterol levels. But given her slight high blood pressure, they wanted to keep her over night. Rosalind Peterson instructions were no one is allowed to administer any thing without consulting her because she was her mom’s health care power of attorney. Before Rosalind Peterson went home to change her clothes she reiterated one more time not to give her mom any medications. The nurse was not in agreement and Rosalind told the nurse if she did it’s a law suit. A doctor came on the shift after Rosalind left and he ordered 16-17 tests on Rosalind’s mom. She listed a few: bone scan, MRI, brain scan, xrays, etc.

    Side note: Rosalind Peterson passed away on 2-4-18 (cancer)

    Here are a couple of her accolades and accomplishments:

    Elana Freeland: Rosalind Peterson recently died. She was one of the first leading activists opposing what is going on in our skies and destroying the soil and vegetation. In 2010, she spoke at the UN.

    Rosalind Peterson of California Skywatch was a certified USDA Farm Service Agency Crop Loss Adjustor working in more than ten counties throughout California.

    (continued)

    Thank you and Godspeed, Rosalind Peterson. ♡
    I have just learned today, rather a little late, of Rosalind Petersons Death in 2018. I did a search here on Avalon and came across your post. I'm so so saddened. Thanks for sharing Paula. I just visited her facebook memoriam page. Sad sad news. What a wonderful woman and activist in the Geo-Engineering Field to say the least. Her work will live on.....

    Well, this past weekend and the coming are the 50th anniversary of the "New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival". And I'm on my property looking at the largest, widest, most overarching chemtrail I have ever seen, north of New Orleans, in the country.

    We got a gate across the driveway and I was able to let my horses out of their pasture to wander the property. They were hysterical and ecstatic. Freedom for them felt good. And so then I felt good.

    Saw this today in the internet and I found it so beautiful.
    Cannot give credit to anybody as it did not say who wrote it.
    My mother died 5 years ago. She had the best death possible. While holdings hands with her I realized she had gone to sleep and died. Looking back I realized that was a present from my guardian angel. I have been feeling a little blue lately and even if I am a grown woman I find myself missing her more as time goes by.

    How beautiful and how melancholy, and how very lucky you are to have had a wise mother with so much spiritual depth. Weeping now reading your post.

    Wow meeradas, your work is stunning. Rich and atmospheric. Much of it dark and elegant. Infused with light. Reminds me of the twilight hours – a place between realms.

    Thought it deserved its own exhibition – so I whipped one together (as I listened to James Gilliland and Ken Rohla discuss the weirdness of the world.) Threw a few cats into the crowd. Cultured cats.

    I won't claim to be much of a curator, but it's the thought that counts isn't it? (Yes, let's go with that.) :



    On another note – I wandered into the park today to give thanks to the earth and the tall green beings. It had rained earlier in the day, so the air was fresh and the land quite blissfully free of people noise. Much as I love my fellow humans, I tend to prefer my tree time with few around. I was pressing my hands gently into the earth to mediate and give thanks, when someone else's dog sauntered over from a distance and decided to stay a while. Came for some strokes and a chat. So we hung out for a moment or two. He had a soft caramel fur with cloudy white patches. His eyes were kind, if a little heavy with the weight of the world. He had to go when his owner / walker started yelling at him. But he didn't rush. At least we were buddies for a few minutes. I love that about dogs. Good people most of the time. Often their hearts are vast and hardy and open. Even if their bodies are only tiny.

    Good wishes peoples of Avalon. May good things find you, even when you don't expect them...

    Wow, Melinda, that's grand!
    Thanks so much to help visualize that - i had not been able to...

    Is that photoshop work? Perhaps i should look into it (have refused to, until now).

    the photos would really have more impact if they were that size;
    the biggest i had made is 120 x 80 cm on canvas (and that's already impressive -
    the right and left monochrome photos on last picture would be approx. that size).

    Maybe it inspires someone to help me set it up for real... !

    A special thanks for the cats! And you're right with dogs (and trees)!

    Beautiful. And highly appreciated.

    Thank you meeradas. I'm so glad you enjoyed it

    It was fun adding the cats. I feel like the one in the lower right corner is really contemplating your art.

    To answer your question, I used a version of Corel PaintShop Pro, not Photoshop.

    Your pics make me think of the kind of photos I would love to take, if only I had the talent and the skill. But instead I occasionally get lucky with a pretty pic here and there. Below are a couple I took years ago.

    This first one is of the Faroe Islands in northern Europe. In the summertime the days are long, and the night is more of a dark twilight. This pic was taken on regular film, and I quite like the artefacts and painterly feel that gives it. If there's any magic to it though that comes from the location. My humble clicking on the most basic camera couldn't really do it justice. You would take incredible photos there, if fate ever sailed you in their direction :




    This one is in Scotland, not far from the capital, taken on a digital camera. One of those moments where you get your friend to stop driving just so you can stare out the window and soak in the light :



    With everything going on around the globe, all the pain and machinations, art and photography create something that draws me back to my soul. Reminding me of the beauty in the macrocosm and the hidden worlds revealed in the tiniest of detail. Layers of beauty in the stillness of a frame. It's a pleasure seeing work as wonderful as yours. I look forward to seeing more, if I'm around when you post it.

    Melinda, these are great, considering that they are straight out of camera, without any "shopping" or else!
    This was my preferred way of shooting (no altering); and i loved film! - but hated the processing (incl. the chemical waste);

    until ca. three- four years ago, when i got to know raw format and lightroom...
    these really give you the means to "develop" photos towards what you saw in the moment you took the photo.

    As for talent - i do not really think it's necessary; it's all a matter of trial and error through a lot of practice.
    Myself still far from "having the eye"... but i'm getting better...

    No need to wait for me posting more - go here, anytime.

    Thank you, once again, for your kindness and beautiful work!

    A poem for the Here and Now thread, and for the Everywhere and Always too.

    Hymn to Time
    Ursula K. Le Guin, 1929 - 2018

    Time says “Let there be”
    every moment and instantly
    there is space and the radiance
    of each bright galaxy.

    And eyes beholding radiance.
    And the gnats’ flickering dance.
    And the seas’ expanse.
    And death, and chance.

    Time makes room
    for going and coming home
    and in time’s womb
    begins all ending.

    Time is being and being
    time, it is all one thing,
    the shining, the seeing,
    the dark abounding.

    So maybe this is common knowledge but I didn't know until I read it a about a week ago (just now remembered): When the Titanic went down over 1500 people died. There were a lot of wealthy/influential folks on board like John & Ben Guggenheim and the Strauss.' A Canadian newspaper estimated the net worth of the top 12 passengers of 1st class at $191 million (over $2 billion today). That's 12 people!

    The Titanic didn't have enough lifeboats. The company who built her was held responsible, White Star Line. The owner was JP Morgan.

    I'm going to look more into this. I heard the typical iceberg story but I mean icebergs and boats have been around for a long time. Why would you take the most sophisticated, expensive, beautiful work of art, which has highly valued people on board and hand her to Cletus? I mean I get it, **** happens, but that seems worthy of investigation.
    Just as every cop is a criminal
    And all the sinners saints

    Wow, Meeradas. You have become a phenomenal photographer. Are you familiar with the work of Fan Ho? I used to have a book of his (Hong Kong Yesterday, B&W photographs), but now you have to pay 900.00-1400.00 for it (Amazon books or ABEBooks.Com).

    Two new books are coming out on Amazon this month for 45.00 (a piece) however, if you want to snap one up . I think you’d really enjoy his work. I don’t know if they will have the magical silver emulsion photography of boats on water...

    Strat: Major financial guys (e.g., bankers) on board who were opposed to the Federal Reserve Bank taking over, or something like that. Nefarious doings, for sure.

    Best wishes!

    Hi everyone,

    Some news from here and now, in Montreal.

    First, the good: Mini Flash, after the great battle that has been hers for years, making up for a diagnosis of deep speech impediment, learning disabilities and motor skills impairment is now finishing her college degree in Social Work, which will allow her, is she wishes, to work as a technician in social work. But that is not all

    She has been admitted in a very tiny 60 students group (restricted admissions) for a bachelor degree in Social Work at none other than McGill University (second best in the whole of Canada). She is starting in September. I am soooo soooo soooo proud of her. She never thought, despite her wishes, that she could go to university (I must admit that myself I was hesitant to wish that too, the base prognostics from speech therapists having been that she would probably not finish primary school).

    I want to thank everyone here who supported me through our mishaps during those many years, with texts, prayers, advice, from what to do to combat bullying to help in depression to natural cures to healing..... name it. We, together, have been and still are successful. You were part of the village that helped raising her.

    -------------------

    The second news: years ago I had problems with my thyroid gland, with a cyst. It was borderline cancerous, they wanted to remove half my gland but I refused. And I could keep it at bay for almost 10 years altogether. However, last Friday, I saw the specialist. It has gotten much worst with the surrounding cells being affected. I am meeting a surgeon next week for another biopsy. Hopefully it will be negative, but I reactivated my thread of 2013 on thyroid. I am rereading it and making a plan to work on this. Anyone who wants to participate is welcome.

    ----------------

    A third news: I had a few auditing sessions with James Newell. Guys/gals, it works!!!!! This is the shortest most efficient PTSD/hang ups/psychological knots therapy I have ever had. And I am qualified to compare not only from my life history (I did have all kinds of therapies throughout time) but also professionally qualified.

    What I perceived is the following: most therapies are language based, and go from the present to the past (in alternative, sometimes to the way past in other lives). When therapies are language based, or even movement based (ex core energetics, which makes you get out your emotions by moving and acting them out), they will help you get the emotions and blocks up to your consciousness, but they won't help you to clear them off literally.

    After being conscious, when going on with language, you keep swimming in the same waste land, not able to get out of it. Language or movement are too slow and not holistic enough.

    Auditing makes you first talk, then review in a very fast fashion, so fast in fact that you end up not being able to use words. What happened with me is that I felt on my visual cortex to process the information, and it is images that were coming up. Very fast. And then all of sudden, after few repetitions, new images not seen before comes up. And then you can see what was the whole purpose of the difficult experience you had. Absolutely a revelation. And in my case, very self responsibilities involved.

    It reminded me of what I read about people dying, that they revised their whole life in a few seconds in a visual format (slides unrolling fast). It felt like that.

    Then we went further, the position of being in the story, then the position of being an observer, then the position of doing the same or similar to others. It changes the perspective of the event completely.

    Then we know why the event happened and what was our own involvement and decisions in it.

    Great experience, feeling lighter afterwards.

    Have a good day everyone.
