I am always so incensed at the way Monsanto forces GMO’s onto the world, undermines our democratic rights, single-handedly ruining our food supply world-wide, creating new diseases and running rough-shod over humanity for the almighty buck.

Today I was reading a wonderful blog about how Monsanto moved into Brazil and connived with the government to pass a law to outlaw organics…under penalty of law one is not permitted to grow organic, have organic seeds, educate, talk or promote organics ….well you get the idea!

Here was a wonderful joke on that website which put it all into context in a most humorous way:

A farmer named Van was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in Montana, when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced out of a dust cloud towards him.

The driver, a young man in an Armani suit, Gucci shoes, Ray-Ban sunglasses and YSL tie, leans out the window and asks the farmer, ‘If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?’
Van looks at the man, obviously a city-slicker and yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers; ‘Sure, Why not?’

The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook computer, connects it to his Cingular RAZR V3 cell phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.

The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg, Germany.

Within mere seconds, he receives an email on his Palm Pilot that the image has been processed and the data is stored. He then accesses a MSSQL database through an ODBC connected Excel spreadsheet with email on his Blackberry and, after a few minutes, receives a response.

Lastly, he prints out a full-colour, 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized HP Laser¬Jet printer and finally turns to the farmer and says, ‘You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves.’
‘That’s right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves,’ says Van.

He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on amused as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.

Then Van says to the young man, ‘Hey, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?’

The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, ‘Okay, why not?’
‘You’re a Representative of Monsanto’, says Van.
‘Wow! That’s correct,’ says the yuppie, ‘but how did you guess that?’

‘No guessing required’, answered the farmer. ‘You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked. You tried to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don’t know a thing about cows. This is a herd of sheep. Now give me back my dog!
Thing is, the reality is not funny…in North America as one blogger at that website mentions, Monsanto is well entrenched in governments around the world and especially in Canada and USA..or maybe the government is well entrenched in Monsanto? Thus, the government ensures that we are kept ignorant by refusing to legislate the labelling of food! We can yell and scream and the government/Monsanto ignores us. But we can eat organic and support the people trying to keep our food supply safe…we can complain vehemently to our grocery store manager and insist he brings in real food, we can inundate our politicians with letters and calls, etc.

 The link below is to a document calling for legal and government actions in the US to prevent further vaccinations of people. It is a long document, but conclusively shows that the vaccination programs in North America are  licensed on the basis of false and fraudulent data and poor quality research. Top quality research and ‘proofs’ that vaccination programs cause epidemics and pandemics, such as autism were ignored by the licensing authorities and these authorities are shown to have direct links to the pharmaceuticals manufacturing the vaccines. In addition, there is evidence discussed that conclusive research by top, independent researchers and scientists were altered by pharmaceuticals and authorities during a secret
meeting to eliminate evidence.

I’m a big believer in the adage  “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.  I cannot see any logic in putting into my body any foreign substances on speculation and especially on the say-so of corporations who stand to make a great deal of money when I get ill from their concoctions.    As long as we continue to blindly accept ‘medicine’ forced on us by corporations (legal entities without heart, soul or conscience) who profit only when we are ill, we can expect the continuing decline in health and wellness in the population.

As for alternatives to pharmaceutical vaccines, homeopathy offers a safe, inexpensive homeopathic vaccination if you feel threatened … but I think it’s always wise to ask yourself  “but for the fear-mongering by the pharmaceuticals through their doctor and media networks, would I feel threatened?”.  Evolution has made a resilient being of us and I feel strongly that a good diet and healthy life-style can usually provide the power the body needs to heal itself.

Last week I received an email comment from a fellow who claimed that homeopathic remedies were nothing more than ‘water’. His comments were entirely devoid of supportive evidence and it seemed to me he was just another of those ghost writers hired by pharmaceuticals to keep the public confused.

Homeopathy, like hypnotherapy, has stood the tests of time…the only truly reliable test of anything. The test of time proved that drug-therapy is either ineffective long-term and/or damaging. Despite being suppressed and oppressed by Big Pharma and conventional medical biases, especially in North America, homeopathy and hypnotherapy are not only still around, they are thriving. In their book, Spontaneous Evolution, Bruce Lipton and Steve Bhaerman note that a full 1/2 of the American population have used alternative therapies. Considering that most alternatives are not covered by insurance, this says a great deal about their efficacy for one half of the American population would not be foolish enough to continue with therapies that did not work.

The F.D.A. Consumer (March 1985), a government magazine reported that the sales of homeopathic medicines increased 1000% (yes, one-thousand percent) from the late 1970’s to the early 1980’s alone. By 1985, The New York Times (Jan 9, 1985) reported that 48% of the physicians in England were recommending homeopathy to their patients.

By 2009, NewsWeek, Time, The Today Show, CBS Morning News, New York Times, Los Angleles Times, Boston Globe, UPI, AP and National Public Radio were but some of the media who had done one or more favorable stories on the effectiveness of homeopathy.

Homeopathy was growing so rapidly in France by 1985 that it was reported in the Le Nouvel Observateur, a leading French magazine, that the then President Mitterrand and six Medical School Deans were calling for more research on homeopathy.

I am living testament to the fact that homeopathy works very well, without negative side-effects. I lost two younger brothers to the conventional treatment of leukemia. I remember listening to the doctor’s pronouncement…grave and scary sounding, with the timing seeming rather opportunistic to me (I was in Ottawa to share my bone marrow with my dying brother) when he told me. The specialist seemed quite shocked at my calmness after he revealed his findings. I told him I would take care of it with natural remedies and changed the subject.

I tackled what their specialist said were ‘signs’ I may soon have full blown leukemia with a course of homeopathy from my personal care physician, Dr. Vladimir Topalo … a truly caring and highly ethical european-trained medical doctor who treats only with natural remedies. I did not have a single down-day and when they checked my blood 2 months later, white blood cells were again perfectly normal.

As a clinical hypnotherapist I know the power of the word to influence behavior. I was not about to let the specialists belief system and his fear-mongering cause me distress. I know in my heart that cancer is not the ‘killer’ that it is made out to be by the conventional medical community. For instance, German New Medicine has proven that at least 13 cancers resolve on their own, simply with a change in diet and lifestyle.

Nobody dies the day after they get the diagnosis, but they will certainly die prematurely if they are told, while in a highly suggestible state, that they will die soon or that they have a ‘killer’ disease…that is often referred to as the nocebo effect. A person is in a highly suggestible state when in fear…that is, the critical faculty of their mind is bypassed and therefore they are not assessing effectively and rationally the information put to them.

I viewed cancer as a signal that my body was out of balance and that it needed some assistance to balance itself. My body’s natural instinct is to find balance and harmony and I knew that if I supported my system with the correct energy, healing foods and lifestyle, I would be fine. And so it was. Rather than add to my immune system’s burden, I supported it. Rather than add poisons to my body, I provided loving energy, thought, food and homeopathic remedy. I feel that is all the evidence I need.

Recently Nobel Prize winner Luc Montagnier Foundation proved how homeopathy works in a series of rigorous experiments investigating the electromagnetic (EM) properties of highly diluted biological samples.

But for those who need more evidence there is lots of research and reporting of facts, hundreds in fact. These are a few:

1. Howard P. Bellows, 1906 The Test Drug Proving of the O.O. and L. Society: A Reproving of Belladonna
2. Book: The Logic of Figures or Comparative Results of Homeopathic and Other Treatments. Comparison of the dis-ease and death rates in Homeopathic and Allopathic (conventional) Hospitals including the epidemic disease of scarlet fever, yellow fever, typhoid showed that homeopathic hospitals usually had 50 to 80% less deaths per 100 people.
3. Singh, L.M. and Gupta, G., : Double-blind studies prove the antiviral effects of homeopathic remedies for 8 of the 10 remedies tested British Homeopathic Journal, 74 (July 1985): 168-174.
4. Homeopathic effectiveness of homeopathics in eliminating arsenic from the body. Journal of Human Toxicology, July 1987
5. Cancer Research Center in India found that of the 77 mice receiving a transplant in Fibrosarchoma, 52% survived more than on e year with homeopathic remedies. The 77 mice that were uncreated died within 10-15 days. British Homeopathic Journal, 69 (1980):168-170
6. Scientists at the British School of Pharmacy showed that homeopathic remedies inhibited pain responses Proceedings of the 40th International Homeopathic Contress (Lyon, France 1985) pp. 228-231.

Further, in England, the Royal Family have regularly used homeopathy since the 1800’s and Queen Elizabeth II is a patron to the famed Royal London Homeopathic Hospital. Apparently Prince Charles never leaves home without his homeopathic medicines. John D Rockefeller was quoted as saying that homeopathy was a ‘progressive and aggressive step in medicine.”

The old tired refrain of pharmeceuticals and conventional medicine is that homeopathy and hypnotherapy are not ‘clinically proven’. Not only are they clinically proven with reliable, truthful clinical results, but when viewed in the context of the latest revelations that 75% of the articles written in the most prestigous of medical journals, the BMJ (British Medical Journal) included, are tainted and rendered useless with false clinical trial reporting by pharmaceutical companies, it would seem that homeopathy is certainly your best bet for remedies that won’t kill you with side-effects.

Today I sent on a magnificent documentary to a person I met in my travels.  I highly recommend it to everyone, but advise them to be sure they are not eating or standing when watching it.     The World According to Monsanto was produced by a European journalist who tracked just what has happened to the world since Monsanto moved in with their GMOs (genetically modified crops). 

 I would give the link, but apparently some power keeps deleting it and health care advocates have to keep reloading it…which they do, because what is happening in these other countries has already started to happen in North America.  Apparently this is information that Monsanto and corporate America simply do not want the public to know about…no wonder! 

In this documentary, you will see that genetically modified cotton workers have developed horrible skin diseases…never before known to man.  This disease is eerily similar to the Morgellon skin disease that showed up a decade or so ago in many states in the USA where cotton is grown.  Fiber-like bugs crawl their way out of a person’s body, leaving life-long scars. 

If you have a weak stomach do not look up pictures of Morgellon’s disease because they get worse as you run down the page…  here is the link:

 Already the medical researchers (aka friends of Monsanto) are circling their wagons and telling the public that it can’t possibly be caused by GM organisms…no, not at all.  But when you watch the hour and a half of evidence in the documentary, it’s pretty hard not to come to the conclusion most reasonable people are coming to…GMO’s are slowly killing us…or maybe not so slowly.  

We now have epidemics of hundreds of diseases and disorders that in the past were almost unheard of….IBS, Crohns, Cancer, thyroid dysfunction, dementia.  Weren’t we promised miracle drugs and food? 

Until we stop buying GM foods, this will get worse.  But then again how can you avoid GM foods…the governments in Canada and US where Monsanto rules, resist all attempts by their citizens to force the legislated labeling of GMO foods.  Maybe some people enjoy scorpion genes in their food…I don’t.   I talk to every manager of every store I shop in…I ask them to bring in real food if they want my regular business.  I write to my MP, etc.  Join me please!

I think it would make a huge difference if some of us started protesting in front of major grocery chain stores, demanding they provide labelled foods and insisting they bring in real food…not additives masquerading as food and not frankenfoods designed to make us sick!  What do you think?

· · · · · · · · · · ·

For many years now I’ve hoped that somehow things in this world would change….the relentless poverty, sweeping decimation of the world’s natural food supply by Monsanto, killing and maiming in the name of ‘medicine’ by pharmaceuticals, the constant lip service paid by politicians to the abuse of children, elderly, women and so many other injustices perpetrated by big multi-nationals in the name of profit. All these wars…all in the name of making somebody, somewhere, richer.

Things are changing, big time. I believe millions are, like me, manifesting change through focussed intention.

The styrofoam pillars of our seriously dysfunctional society are collapsing before our very eyes…myths and misconceptions about our safety and security dismantled lie by lie. Monsanto’s real agenda has been revealed. It’s to control the entire world’s food supply – not to feed the hungry as claimed. The biggest religions in the world are now revealed to be among the most serious of abusers and condoners of abuses…a far cry from the ‘divine’ they led followers to believe they were.

And now, thanks to WikiLeaks and other whistleblowers, we know what really goes on behind the closed doors of the offices of people who are supposed to be ‘leaders’ and acting in our best interests. We are learning that we have sent young men and women to their deaths on the say-so of people who were either lying, knew there was lying or who were making profits from keeping the lies a secret.

I was never able to fathom how 2012 could bring the huge changes in humanity and consciousness that spiritualist have talked about for ions. But now it is very evident. Truth, no matter how suppressed and oppressed, will percolate to the top…to come into plain view of even those who choose to be indifferent.

I am so happy that people like Julian Assange (WikiLeaks) have the courage to release the truth as he has. I am relieved to know that the young people of the world are using technology to hamper the unscrupulous activities of big businesses such as MasterCard, Visa and PayPal,who are engaged in censoring information and interfering with the free dissemination of evidence and knowledge that should be made transparent and available to all people of the world as a matter of democratic process.

I praise the people who produce documentaries such as The World According to Monsanto which shows clearly the irreversible damage the company has done all around the world. Big Business subverts democracy in the most profound ways, meanwhile keeping us distracted with weapons of mass distraction such as TV, which is so controlling that our children are being lured into drugs and sex by the ages of 8 and 9 years old and vital information about vaccines and drugs censored in favor of the propaganda of pharmaceutical companies.

And to the Irish and French who are organizing and making runs on the banks in their respective countries, bravo. These banks are not part of the government…they are private businesses who print money. We all think these ‘banks’ are part of the governmental structure. They are not. The wonderful book “Spontaneous Evolution” by Bruce Lipton and Steve Bhaerman, explains how important sounding names attached to what are nothing more than big businesses have completely duped us….The US Federal Reserve Bank, the Bank of England, the Swiss National Bank and the Euopean Central Bank are all titles impressive to the average person. They cause us to erroneously link them in our minds with government, but in fact, each of these ‘banks’ is a privately held corporation with the sole mission of making a profit on the backs of the unsuspecting public.

I’m writing to PayPal about their unacceptable behavior and if their interference with my right to pay whomever I want to continues, I will close out my PayPal account in protest of their audacity in trying to censor information that I am entitled to, as a citizen of a supposed democracy. I am furious at their attempts to decide for me who I can/should support. I am also going to write to Visa and protest their behavior and if it continues, as I’m sure it will, I will look for another more ethical company to do business with. They are circling their wagons…I wonder what is in it for them in censoring Julian Assange or in preventing me from supporting him, as is my democratic right. I wonder just who was behind this anti-democractic behavior.

I have already been using my ATM less and less, almost negligibly now….in protest of the fact that these highway robbers have tricked us into using a convenience that costs us dearly. First we deposit our money for them to use to make interest and then these ‘banks’, many masquerading as government institutions, charge us to get our own money back out of their banks.

Despite the fact that the Irish and French have been organizing major runs on their banks and that this would certainly rate as news more important than the latest entertainment information, there was not a peep about this on Canada’s national news broadcast…CBC. CTV is even worse…they are reduced to having entertainers, contests for the cutiest Halloween pictures…well, you get the idea.

We are deliberately kept in the dark by the media, prevented from being able to make our own decisions or knowing fully how our elected politicians are ignoring our wishes and doing their own thing. Deadly pharmaceuticals are advertised with impunity on our major TV channels and medical ‘news’ is nothing more than fodder from the drug companies pushing their propaganda. I can’t remember the last time I saw balanced reporting on the local channels. Now, I get my TV news from RT Channel…far superior in my mind to the US/Canadian nonsense now offered. And I’ve come to love The Epoch Times, a small but wholesome newspaper.

These fear-mongring, money-hungry, heartless corporations are never going to be able to keep truth suppressed…there will always be loving, courageous humans to fight them by exposing truths and blowing the whistle on horrors perpetrated in our name.

Last week I was reading a blog by Lynne McTaggart on her website (What Doctors Don’t Tell You) that really scared me. After reading it I was seriously asking myself if we have made Gods of psychopaths.

Lynne was explaining that during the trial of 14,000 women vs. Wyeth, the manufacturer of Hormonal Replacement Therapy, it was learned that the company had hidden all sorts of evidence from their clinical trails that showed that their product caused breast and cervical cancer. Here for the past 14 years or so, we were told this therapy was necessary to avoid cancer and yet it in fact caused cancer and the company knew it from the get-go.

It also turned out that this kind of behavior is just part of doing business for pharmaceuticals and therefore all these studies you hear announced on the News and all these ‘research reports’ they routinely refer to in ads and TV commercials are completely unreliable.

Now all these so-called prestigious medical journals are in a tissy…one falsified and manipulated clinical trial will taint all articles that have referred to it and they will all be entirely unreliable. It seems some 75% of medical journal reports and articles are now useless, if not very dangerous because so many people have been prescribed these medications on the basis of these articles.

I haven’t touched a medication in 35 years, preferring to use homeopathy instead. Drugs have never worked and we have more catastrophic illness surfacing every day…no wonder! You would have to hog-tie me before you could get me to take a medication. Those people are deliberately forcing people onto drugs to make money and our doctors just go along, presuming that what the pharmaceuticals say is truthful. Well! The news is now out and it isn’t pretty.

I feel that if these pharmaceuticals do not meet the definition of psychopaths, their salespeople, the psychiatrists and medical doctors who favor them so highly, should change the definition of psychopath to be sure they are included.

No wonder hypnotherapy is sought after by more and more people looking for resolution of emotional issues, fears and unwanted habits!

I work toward helping children of all ages with their issues. Parent often bring their children to see me about time management problems, otherwise known as he/she doesn’t listen’ and ‘won’t do things when I ask them to’ or forgetfulness.

As I delve further into the issue, I learn that parents will give their children instructions such as “be home in a half hour”, or “you can play for another 10 minutes and then come to dinner”. To parents’ dismay, the children are not home on time and still playing well after the 10 minutes is up.

The real problem is not that a child is being contrary, it is that children do not subscribe to the concept of time. Time is an adult human concept; children, animals, the universe and indeed many cultures do not subscribe to time. Time is a concept devised for the convenience of humans by humans. In hypnotherapy, for example, one can self-heal easily when the concept of time is set aside -there is no past, present and future; there is only the now, which is where children live.

In addition, children do not have the mental capacity to understand the concept of time because it involves future, not something they are yet equipped to deal with. Two other concepts they are unable to grasp fully enough to consider future events in the context adult expect, are consequence and danger. This is why insurers are reluctant to insure drivers under 20 years of age and when they do the premiums are very high.

A child does not have the necessary experience with time to have a feeling that X number of minutes have passed. Additionally, children are designed to focus entirely on the ‘now’ – this very moment. Multi-tasking is not within the realm of their abilities yet. It is not until many years of experience and development have passed can children put time into the context necessary to satisfy adults.

Avoid asking the child to take on any task requiring a focus on the future and on the concept of time, as he is entirely not yet developed mentally to meet your demands. Instead, provide him a watch or show him a clock, if he is familiar with numbers and clocks, and point out what you want him to do when a certain hand gets to a certain place on the clock. For those children under six who are not yet familiar with clocks, simply help them put their toys away when it’s time to do so. This is far less stressful on everyone and certainly more rewarding for the child.
