Ask Grace™ | Hypnotherapy, health & wellness and environmental by Grace Joubarne

I believe that WW3 has already started and it will be absolutely evident to even the staunchly indifferent by mid 2012.  Arthur Shopenhauer, 19th Century Philosopher described the 3 stages truth passes through:  First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

We are now seeing how truth in every arena of life is going through those very stages:  alternative and complementary medicine (eg. homeopathy, hypnotherapy, herbal remedies, etc)  have been vehemently denied as the successful, dignified and inexpensive modalities of healing they are and have been for centuries;  the real reasons about why we went to war in Iraq and Afganistan and why Enron and other financial institutions disintegrated at our expense were suppressed;  and now people like Julian Assange and his WikiLeaks team are violently oppressed.  Slowly but surely, all this information that has been kept from us for ions is percolating to the forefront and accepted as a given, albeit grudingly.

But WW3 is not being fought with material weapons and not between countries, races or religions. It is between the average person and the very wealthy (the 10% who have 90% of the assets of the world).  It is and will increasingly be fought with truth – viral information sharing and non-violent rebellion – against established institutions and norms.  

Wiki represents a FREE sharing of information/truth amongst all classes on the world wide web, but most especially the 90% who do not figure in the world’s riches… we now have Wikipedia, Wikimedia, WikiLeaks, Wikihealth, YouTube, etc.  All free information, all provided by millions of average persons from all walks of life, from all countries of the world and across all races and religions. 

Truth is now percolating through the illusion and mis-information mass media has piled on the world.  We now learn about how banks orchestrated massive world-wide financial failures, started unjust wars, how religions propagate, condone, support and enable crimes against humanity (children), how multi-nationals undermined democratic process (Monsanto, Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, Bank of America, Enron, Lemann Brothers), how pharmaceuticals run the government and the medical system, how Monsanto now owns most of the world’s food supply, and so on.  There are now internet-organized runs on banks in Ireland and France; Spain and Portugal are bankrupt, as are Greece, Ireland, USA and soon France.  

Most importantly, nobody can stop the dissemination of the information as in the past.  The more they try to stop it, the more pours out.  Corruption is rampant, but there is no place to hide because cyberspace is both wide open space and yet inherently protective of the right to have it flow.  People now see the freedom of the internet as a human right.

I believe that the Universe has prepared certain people for this event.  Some millions of people have found major spiritual change/shift, wherein they find themselves fully accepting and able to remain calm.  Look around and see how people are unconsciously feeling the energy shifting all around them…they are frightened, stressed, insomnia is rampant, depression and anxiety levels catastrophic.  The average person is like a mouse running in every direction trying to avoid something it knows is there, but can’t put a finger on. 

Those of us who can remain detached and objective can also accept and act instead of react … we will survive the collapse of the organization of society as we know it now….most will not.  Dementia now affects 1 out of 4 people; in 15 years conservatively predicted to affect 1 out of 2 people.  Dementia has now been concretely linked to the use of anti-depressants by Grace E Jackson, a psychiatrist researcher who has made her considerable evidence and findings public in her book Drug-Induced Dementia:  a perfect crime.

Cancer now hits 1 out of 4 people, in 5 years expected to hit 1 out of 2 people if things don’t soon change.  The dollar of the financial world is leveraged at least 35 to 1…the money is not worth the paper it is written on and not backed by anything.  Have you noticed the run on gold lately? 

Those of us who are grounded by our energy and spirit will be ok.  Those who are grounded to material things will have to change or die.  The brain is something that society conditioned to become bossy and demand evidence before we do anything.  The brain has been conditioned as the perfect excessive consumer…never satisfied with anything and powerless to stop itself from being controlled by mass media and their cousins multi-national businesses.  We have been convinced to accept less value for more money (from food to furniture) and to buy well beyond our means into material things that are planned to be obsolete before they are paid for.  We have become conditioned to beleive that pharmaceutical snake oil will ‘cure’ us, as we watch ourselves dissolve into catastropic illnesses. 

The brain has access to only 1% of the available universal information. The subconscious mind (gut feeling, 6th sense) has access to 100% of the universal data bank of information.  Always pay attention to your gut feeling and go with the flow.  Do not demand evidence…just go with your gut feeling at all times. 

I love the changes; I welcome them.  Change is a vital part of life.  If you feel good about yourself, you welcome change, if not, you see every change as loss. The feeling of loss causes suffering.  I can’t wait for the whole thing to come crashing down, so we can have some real purpose to our lives again…people need to work together, not apart as in ‘survival of the fittest’.  We need now to put away all distractions (especially TV and communications technology) and get a grip on our food sources, condition of the water we drink and our value systems, especially as they affect children.

I’ve been trying to find out who to write to at Visa and PayPal to protest their violation of my democratic right to freedom of expression and freedom of speech, which I want to exercise by supporting Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.

I was actually naïve enough to believe I could do that…that I was free to send him my donation. Reality certainly hit me hard…like millions of other Canadians I have found myself dictated to by a mighty corporation or two, Visa, PayPal and MasterCard, as to whom I can and cannot support.

What’s worse, while there is a mass violation of millions of Canadian’s right to express their support, there is not a single peep from our government!

I wrote directly to RBC Visa (Royal Bank Visa) and received the responses at the bottom of this post. I wrote to PayPal and obviously they’ve blown me off because there’s not a peep from them.

What a bunch of !#$$%%, as my father would have said. Hiding behind a large corporate fog, claiming they have no influence until the annual meeting of Visa shareholders and if I want to talk with Visa about this violation of my basic freedoms, I can do it at the time of their shareholders’ meeting and what’s more, I need to find out through other sources when that meeting is.

The man (Assange), has never been charged with anything to do with espionage, criminal activity, etc. It’s pretty clear to everyone that he is being framed with these ‘sexual’ charges. While I can use PayPal and Visa to support KKK, pornographers, child molesters and terrorists cells, I cannot support Assange, whose only ‘crime’ was to disseminate information he received from others….as in journalism. It seems the big wigs in US government are stopping at nothing…many people are worried that ‘nothing’ means that they will eventually kill him off.

I hate to be cynical, but this is the nest of people who let loose the CIA and other conscience-less power dealers every time they want to generate more income or get more power somewhere in the world.

I want to support Assange because I am ashamed that all these horrible crimes against humanity, from bank manipulations that cause horrific hardship in people’s lives to illegal wars, are done in my name as a citizen of a country that supports such activity. There should be no secrets from me when they are acting in my name as a citizen of a free country…ever.

According to Norman Solomon, author of War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning us to Death, 15% of the casualties in WW1 were civilians, 65% in WW2 and now more than 90% of the casualties in Iraq have been civilians. Notice the trend? Soon the only way to be sure you are safe will be to enlist in the military!

I happened to come upon a list of the characteristics of a ‘psychopath’ by Michael Conner, Psy.D. (2001). Here are some from that list and I leave it to your imagination as to how well these characteristics fit the ‘leaders’ you know:

• superficial charm (politicians and bankers???)
• self-centered & self-important (politicians, bankers and CEOs????)
• deceptive behavior & lying (ditto???)
• conning & manipulative (ditto???)
• little remorse or guilt (ditto???)
• shallow emotional response (notice how so on National TV as they scurry to cover up their misdeeds)
• callous with a lack of empathy (who cares if 90% of the casualties in Iraq were civilians?)
• living off others or predatory attitude (Big Business, Banks, Monsanto, etc with headliner politicians working for them???)
• poor self-control (as in telling the public anything and everything, none of which is true) Check out some pretty enlightening quotes at Question War which tell us exactly how these people think and feel.
.promiscuous sexual behavior (I’m thinking Clinton and Edwards here and don’t know about the others, but I’ll bet you could have a long list if you wanted to research it)
• early behavioral problems (think the Bush dynasty, lead by Prescott Bush, the patriarch of the Bush dynasty, who said in an interview in 1966: “There are three things to remember: claim everything [that is supposedly good], explain nothing [about what you do behind people’s back], [and] deny everything [when your wrongdoings are revealed].” I believe we are at the ‘deny everything stage now’.
• lack of realistic long term goals (this we’ve all seen for ourselves)
• impulsive lifestyle (start a war or two, ask questions later)
• irresponsible behavior (Iraq, Afganistan, Vietnam, Monsanto, BP, etc)
• blaming others for their actions (starting with Julian Assange and WikiLeaks)
• varied criminal activity (lying, murdering in the name of ‘protecting us’, flying the Bin Laden family out of US without interrogation first…you get the drift)

Enjoy this wonderful article in the “>Huffington Post on the hipocrisies and travesties launched in our names.

In Canada it seems, we sit quietly hoping that we won’t be affected by the chaos around the world… the indifference probably the result of fluoride in the water, causing us to be complacent and placid (side effects of fluoride known since the days of Stalin).

If every conscious American and Canadian would write a protest letter to their heads of government and to these dictator companies, we may avert a world-wide takeover of what’s left of our democracies. Bless people like Assange who have the courage to put their entire lives (he may get killed over this) on the line to make the truth percolate to the top. I can’t wait for him to release information about the robber bankers and the destructive systems they have foisted on us…can’t wait 

Thanks for contacting us, Ms. Joubarne, and I trust I’ve pointed you in the right direction. We’ll be happy to help you again if there’s anything else you’d like to discuss.

If you prefer, you can call us any time at 1-800-769-2512. Also, look for the option to chat live with us on select pages on www.rbcroyalbank.com .

Thank you Brad.
Can you advise when the next shareholders meeting is…the one you mentioned that would allow RBC to bring our protests to Visa’s attention?
RBC is associated with a very undemocratic, tyrannical enterprise. Maybe RBC feels it has to accept that sort of behavior, but I’m a little person and I don’t. That will be the day when I accept that a company like Visa is going to treat me as though I have no right to decide what/who I support with my money.

I look forward to your advisement about this ‘annual meeting’.

I would also appreciate it if you could provide me with the direct address (email or snail mail) where I can personally protest to Visa.

Dear Ms. Joubarne:

My name is Brad, and I appreciate your concern regarding credit card processors’ recent decision regarding Wikileaks.

I would like to thank you, first, for taking the time to write in about this. I know that it’s frustrating to be told who you can or cannot give your money to–and I want to assure you that if it were up to us here at RBC, we wouldn’t prevent you from directing your disposable income to the philanthropic cause of your choice.

That said–as you know, the decision was made by Visa Inc. RBC Royal Bank only sends out the money to pay the merchant/organisation–the Visa network is what makes sure that the payment actually arrives. Unfortunately, Visa has decided not to process any charge to WikiLeaks–which means that since they won’t allow WikiLeaks to receive money, there’s no point in charging it to your RBC credit card.

At the same time, I’ve documented your concern for the RBC feedback department. While we don’t have total control over Visa Inc, we are a shareholder along with every other Visa bank. If enough clients like you raise their voices about an issue they consider to be alarming, there’s little doubt it will become an issue at the next annual meeting.

Thanks for contacting us, Ms. Joubarne, and we appreciate your continued business with RBC Royal Bank. We’ll be happy to help you again if there’s anything else you’d like to discuss.

If you prefer, you can call us any time at 1-800-769-2512. Also, look for the option to chat live with us on select pages on www.rbcroyalbank.com .

I am a Visa credit card account holder and fervent blogger. I am, by way
of this letter, registering my absolute fury over Visa’s anti-democratic
behavior…that you would think for one minute that you have the right to
interfere with my support of any person or organization I choose,
particularly when that person and organization has never been found guilty
of any crime is very upsetting.

I am giving Visa a week to reverse their decision to engage in tyrannical
and controlling behavior otherwise I am going to apply for and use a non
MasterCard and non-Visa affliated credit card. And, I will encourage all
my blog readers to do the same en-masse.

I look forward to your speedy response to my concerns,
