LISA RENEE: “Hidden Intergalactic Conflict”

“Humanity is in the midst of a hidden intergalactic conflict over personal sovereignty and spiritual freedom that is becoming increasingly visible in the physical material world when observing the current global events. This is a time of heightened spiritual warfare against all aspects of human freedom. This crisis event is a major milestone in the ascension timeline in which we must look deeply into our authentic core self and ask our inner spiritual guidance for the answers when addressing the greater problems humanity is facing. This is a collective dark night of the soul transition forcing us to look deeper. What kind of person do you want to be in the midst of the turmoil that is happening during the manufactured global crisis that is unraveling? Awake and aware? Asleep at the wheel?”

Humanity is in the midst of a hidden intergalactic conflict over personal sovereignty and spiritual freedom that is becoming increasingly visible in the physical material world when observing the current global events. This is a time of heightened spiritual warfare against all aspects of human freedom. This crisis event is a major milestone in the ascension timeline in which we must look deeply into our authentic core self and ask our inner spiritual guidance for the answers when addressing the greater problems humanity is facing. This is a collective dark night of the soul transition forcing us to look deeper. What kind of person do you want to be in the midst of the turmoil that is happening during the manufactured global crisis that is unraveling? Awake and aware? Asleep at the wheel?

We must be willing to overcome fear and denial and to be potentially very uncomfortable when seeing the ugly truths staring us in the face, attempting to hide behind the current manufactured crisis events. Connecting the dots of the disinformation campaigns being deployed in order to see the accurate motivations hidden behind the weaponization of the narrative, that is becoming clearer in the mainstream news every day. We must also understand the roll out of the Pestilence Program as an attempt to activate a global bio-spiritual weapon, which is being used to buy more time. This is a mass distraction to veil the mobilization of covert alliances and counter forces into multiple negotiations, calculated to organize another strategic effort to seize control of the planetary resources. Further, there are the wolves in sheep’s clothing directly profiting from the orchestration of these multiple enslavement agendas to escalate the faux global pandemic into a full-blown economic crisis, intended to be the major catalyst for hijacking a rapidly changing and evolving global society. The shifting architecture in the planetary grid network is worlds apart from what it was just a few short years ago, making the current crisis events much less effective than anticipated. The NAA will not be achieving the end game results that the Power Elite are expecting, by culling the masses.

The positive aspects are that many nonspiritual and spiritual people are waking up simultaneously to see that the nature of the reality is actually an inverted system. That generally, society functions in the opposite of what the masses are being told to believe in the mainstream narrative. The veneer of the 3D narrative propped up by the controlled mainstream media is crumbling and many are able to see the mass manipulation and gaslighting tactics clear as day. For those awakening beyond the divisions purposely generated through identity politics and culture wars, most reasonable humans can agree that something is very wrong in the worldscape today, and can unquestionably observe an anti-human death culture being incessantly promoted and growing rapidly in society like the viral infection. Thus, an assortment of aggressive mind control and propaganda tactics have been greatly accelerated into every segment of global society, designed to steal human sovereignty and instigate terror and survival fears at every turn.

The silent weapon of the Pestilence Program is actually connected to horseman pulsing, the covert technology broadcasts into the airwaves and ley lines, implanting AI demons and demon seeds, to grow the shadow and negative forms in the minds and consciousness body of the masses. The horseman pulsing is an electromagnetic sound wave weapon that can be heard as sonic booms and low base rumbling in the earth’s ley lines. When people are overrun by their fear and inner shadows with the help of targeted AI signals and demon seed implants, they tend to have little to no control over their inner shadow rising, which brings an ever-growing inner sensation of high anxiety. The inner shadow is merging with collective shadows and this content is merging with Galactic and Universal shadows, which then can expel itself through demonstrated fits and rages, spewing emotional tumults that are buried within the individuals’ negative ego and pain body. Now in the outer environment, the collective shadow is rising through the dark night of the planetary soul, where we cannot run and we cannot hide from these dark shadows any longer. Many times, it is in the darkest hours of despair drenched in our own shadows, that we may experience a profound epiphany and finally begin to see the eternal light of higher truth and clarity.

The current chaotic events that are being revealed in the globalscape drama are designed to perpetuate mass psychological operations against the earth inhabitants that ultimately serve the objectives of those negative Controlling forces, competing to succeed in their version of the One World Order agenda. The purposeful orchestration of controlling mass perception through the intentional spreading of a genetically modified biological weapon to unleash a global pandemic, is setting the stage for the trigger event to be manipulated in the timelines. From the NAA perspective, this trigger event is to collect massive amounts of loosh for powering up the AI’s projecting virtual realities in the timelines, which have been put into position to help roll out the next stages of the final conflict global NAA dramas.

Black Suns, Globalists Standing at the Ready

The problem, reaction and deceitful solutions are being handed off as marketed infomercials framed as news for manufacturing consent, through the carefully crafted narratives and the ongoing manipulation of information in the Globalist elites owned mainstream propaganda. The end result they seek is to further the One World Agenda to the next stage by unleashing horseman technology, induced by the Pestilence Program in order to gain compliance and submission, on an unaware public that further enforces the goals of transhumanism, forced vaccinations for ongoing genetic modification and eugenics, the genocide of the undesirables.

On the interdimensional planes, this includes the ongoing chess game battle that is playing out between the NAA’s attacking forces with assortments of AI Demons and weaponized dark portals that are aimed at the spiritually awakened human population, those groups that are able to comprehend and observe these same agendas in play. This is being further manipulated by silent electromagnetic weapons such as microwaves and 5G millimeter waves, that are used to transmit destructive energy broadcasts for military level crowd control and to instigate terrorism, depravity and suicidal ideation in human beings. The Armageddon software or the artificial 911 Timelines are continually used to spread terror and confusion throughout the earth population in order to replay and repeat the emotional trauma experienced in the previous warring timelines in human history, mainly caused by the altercations made with the invading groups of the NAA.

LISA RENEE: “Return to Rightful Owner”

RRO or RTRO is the abbreviation for ‘Return to Rightful Owner’.

Return to Rightful Owner is a command by divine right of all beings in Universal Law to have their consciousness memories and lightbody parts be returned to them in the event it has been hijacked or stolen by negative forces, in current or previous timelines.

Newsletter excerpt: Due to recent positive developments with the Shield of Solomon overriding the planetary horizontal consciousness grid there has been a systematic release of Group Oversoul enslavement. It was revealed the Golden Eagle Grid harnessed consciousness power through the entrapment of various levels of human spirit bodies. At this time Guardians are releasing Monads that had been stapled to the Golden Eagle Grid, thereby trapping the consciousness from merging with their rightful owner and human body.

At this time [November 2010] many Monads that had been reversed or split from its original twin are now being reunited. (This is the beginning phases of the “Restoration” which is returning back God’s natural laws to the physical plane.) In fact the Guardians explain that in the returning to this planet the rightful laws – all Spirit bodies and their energies that have been misdirected, stolen or used by external controller forces in this last dark cycle – MUST be returned to the Rightful Owner as he/she claims their authority as God and as a sovereign eternal being. They have given us a sample language of which to claim our rightful sovereignty in God’s Natural Laws. Please feel free to utilize or share with all those you feel may benefit from this command.

RRO Command

In your mind or outloud as you feel guided, please repeat this command:

As the 12 D Avatar and the Light of God that I am, I cancel all contracts and/or agreements that I have made with any entity, guide, in this timeline or in any reality, that were not in my highest alignment and expression of my Light Source in the Law of One. I terminate all false matrices, or illusions that may have obscured my highest God purpose and soul mission, from the past, present and future. I terminate redemptive vehicle and crucifixion contracts and their related phantom systems from impacting my consciousness and all of my 12 bodies. I further declare that the cancellation of all such contracts is to be irrevocable and permanent in all time frames and realities. Further I ask my Avatar to return all unity codes, fire letters, and the jewels, wings, energies and parts of bodies that have been misdirected or usurped and ask to return them Now to the Rightful Owner in the name of Self Sovereignty herein stated and commanded into presence. I invalidate the beings by commanding a full dissolution and dissolve them into the One Source-God Source Light through the Eternal Love of Forgiveness and Forgetfulness. Completely Heal and Seal my personal auric Field from any further intrusion. Return all energies and essences that are in divine right order NOW. I call back Now all that is my self sovereign God power and right.

I choose my perfection to stand in the Eternal Light and represent my full sovereignty and freedom for all human beings on this planet. I receive this Gift now as I will Share this Gift with All. All is One with the Light. I AM UNITY. Beloved God, Thank you!

LISA RENEE: “Healthy Boundaries”

“Take notice of people and places that tend to drain you. Find neutrality in that situation by intending to connect with the inner Compassionate Witness. Just observe without judgement or reaction. Do not engage yet set appropriate boundaries. Before entering those places or exposing yourself to people whom you have a draining or vampiric sensation take a few minutes to fortify yourself and amplify your personal shield. Think of it as your inner energy space that will only allow love and positivity within it deflecting anything else. Focus on the Spirits of Christ as being inside your 12D Shield and this personal space protecting you and guiding you through your path in the day. See it and feel it as the force around you. Then recognize what action or non-action is required in order to responsibly maintain that peaceful inner space with healthy and appropriate boundaries. Try different ways and find the tool that works for you. Again, one of my favorites is always “I am God, I am Sovereign, I am Free’.”

~Lisa Renee

 

We must make an effort to identify what choices we do have and make changes in our environment that can increase our sense of safety and comfort while in a physical space. In order to be pro-active in creating Healthy Boundaries, we need to assess the physical safety of our environment and assess the emotional safety of our environment. And realize it may be necessary to remove people or situations from your life who are entrenched in extremely destructive or harmful behaviors in order to make these necessary changes to our life style.

When we are more competent in Emotional Self-Regulation our inner safety is enhanced so that more Trust can be formed and we discover that we really do have the resources inside of us for feeling more comfort and feeling safe. Now, sometimes we’re going to need to maintain Healthy Boundaries in order to feel more safe and centred especially when in a group situation or difficult family situations. It could be any kind of situation. Healthy Boundaries is a must. So, think about how you’re feeling when you’re around a person who drains you, pushes your buttons maybe consciously or unconsciously to upset you, someone with whom you feel you may easily lose your centre maybe lose your Impulse Control. Sometimes this happens when people are controlling, they’re pushy, they’re manipulating or they’re demanding of our time and energy. How does this feel in your body? How does it feel in your mind? How does the presence of this particular person actually affect you?

Registering Feelings in Our Body

Now, as you’re registering the feelings and sensations that you’ve made imagine your body’s like a car with a dashboard with warning lights and you’ve just identified there’s a check engine light on your personal boundary system. It’s a security system warning you that “Hey, your personal energy field’s being breached and you’re letting in negativity, you’re letting in fear, maybe you’re letting in stuff that really isn’t yours”. This is very important. When our boundaries are weak, when we’re exhausted, when we’re emotionally triggered, when we’re unclear and confused we let in all sorts of debris that isn’t actually our debris and we give away our own personal energy unconsciously. Many times people that are emotional vampires will cord to us too in order to actually drain the energy so this is essentially an emotional vampire relationship that’s created from imbalanced energy exchanges made between the parties involved.

Now, this sensation of feeling drained and depleted may mean that one is dealing with a breach of energetic security and a leak of our own personal energy that is feeding into someone or something else. When you detect this kind of energy vampirism you should be looking a warning signs indicating that some inner work needs to be done. Some cords may need to be cut. Some boundaries may need to be shored up and one maybe needs to take steps to return back in one’s spiritual centre. This of course is the main purpose of our 12D Shield to help maintain personal energies and personal boundaries especially when facing a person or environment that is dominating or controlling or an emotional vampire. This is an act of our own personal responsibility to maintain healthy boundaries and to exert our right to have them even when narcissists may tell you otherwise.

Grounding or Centering System

Grounding oneself is similar as the way a tree is sinking her roots deeply in the earth to stay secure in a storm. This is also a tool in creating healthy boundaries — finding the inner stillness is what allows peace to nurture the inner connection within ourselves by finding our center and spiritual core. So, our grounding root system is both our anchor and supports the maintenance of a strong boundary system. It keeps us from being blown about in other people’s winds. We must learn to better compassionately witness other people’s emotional dramas and pain without allowing their pain and chaos to impact our own energies or direction. Learning to identify escalating emotional dramas in narcissistic behavior gives us a way to disengage from the external chaos from allowing it to impact us. When we are inwardly focused and we become still within in order to connect with our heart and feel into our deeper intuition. This is the process that keeps one steady, inner connected and focused.

So, finding the inner core to ground yourself and have strong boundaries can happen in many ways. In our Energetic Synthesis community, we suggest acclimating to the ES Core Triad as a dedicated daily practise but there are some other ideas maybe saying a Prayer and setting positive intentions every day, offering your blessings over you morning meal or dinner and repeating positive affirmations in your head as you go through your day. Try different ways and find the tool that works for you. Again, one of my favorites is always “I am God, I am Sovereign, I am Free.”

Take notice of people and places that tend to drain you. Find neutrality in that situation by intending to connect with the inner Compassionate Witness. Just observe without judgement or reaction. Do not engage yet set appropriate boundaries. Before entering those places or exposing yourself to people whom you have a draining or vampiric sensation take a few minutes to fortify yourself and amplify your personal shield. Think of it as your inner energy space that will only allow love and positivity within it deflecting anything else. Focus on the Spirits of Christ as being inside your 12D Shield and this personal space protecting you and guiding you through your path in the day. See it and feel it as the force around you. Then recognize what action or non-action is required in order to responsibly maintain that peaceful inner space with healthy and appropriate boundaries. [1]

LISA RENEE: “Genetic Engineering” (Audio Version)

“The war over consciousness is bubbling to the surface, with more pieces being exposed to the light of day for those who are willing to see. This month we look at the over arching agendas to manipulate the environment, weather, the food supply, human DNA expression and higher consciousness, through Genetic Engineering. When we understand the potential of the 12 stranded DNA design during the ascension process, it is no wonder the NAA have been attempting to destroy it in everyway possible. This effort began to escalate after World War II with alien contact, and again in the 90’s when more of the Indigo and Crystal children started arriving in larger numbers. As we connect the dots between the multiple avenues used to control and manipulate human consciousness, we can see why a full disclosure event is needed. Until then it is up to each of us, to do our best to accurately assess the world of forces in our day-to-day lives, and to make informed and conscious decision about what we interact with.”

LISA RENEE: “Mind Controlled Gene Expression”

“Genetic engineering is a way to add new traits to the gene pool of an organism, using anything in nature from a plant or animal to a human being. As many of us realize, the exact same process has occurred with the genetic engineering used for Alien Hybridization methods in certain bloodlines of humanity, in order to achieve certain results that either enhance traits or degrade traits of the organic human body. The more genetic engineering the human body has endured, to be spliced with multiple other species such as black hole entities, the more the body loses its ability to activate original DNA and resume its organic function. Through targeting the human Brain and Bio-Neurology, the mind, body and soul can be manipulated to control thoughts and emotions, transmit suggestions, interfere with long and short term memory, insert images, run audio and sensory experiences, and take control over autonomic and voluntary functions of the body. The goal is to confuse or destroy the organic signals that normally keep the mind and body in a state of balance and equilibrium, while shutting down the Genetic Switches that are responsible for DNA signaling in the human body. Large populations can be sent broadcast frequencies that are designed to incite agitation, aggression or anxiety in specific demographic areas. Then the Controllers may put out news feeds in the mainstream media to incite fear, blame and promote sensationalism and victimization language, in order to single out certain marginalized groups for the intentional targeting. In the current mainstream news can you spot where this exact psychological warfare tactic is happening now? This is the divide and conquer psychological warfare strategy so that humans will perceive other humans as the enemy, thereby inciting violence, rape, hostility and criminal behaviors.”

~Lisa Renee

 

To understand how Mind Controlled Gene Expression is directly related to consciousness enslavement in an organism and how this process works, there are some key biological principles that must be married with the concept of electromagnetism that exists in the world of forces. Let’s begin with reviewing some basic biological concepts.

DNA is a universal language that is the blueprint for all life. DNA is a molecule found in the nucleus of every cell and is made up of four chemical subunits that are represented by A, T, G and C. In DNA the nitrogenous base is made up of these nucleic acids; Adenine (A), Thymine (T), Guanine (G), and Cytosine (C). Metaphysically, each of these nucleic acids is connected to a base elemental substance of the planetary body as Earth, Water, Fire and Air. When we pollute these four elements in the earth, we pollute the corresponding nucleic acid in our DNA. This helps us to understand why the NAA instigates mass pollution and toxic dumping on the earth without accountability, because this is another way to directly damage the higher expression of human DNA. The order of these chemical subunits in the DNA strand holds a code of intelligent information for the cell. The Genetic Language uses these four chemical subunits to write the instruction set on how to make the proteins that the organism or body needs to develop, grow and live. Smaller segments of DNA are called genes and each gene holds an instruction set on how to produce a single protein, as well as generate the many messages to instruct the functions of the proteins within the body. Proteins are very important because they build the DNA ladder and they do all the enzymatic work in the cells that are required for the structure, function, and regulation of the body’s tissues and organs. Proteins regulate all of the metabolic reactions in the cell and serve as the enzymes needed to catalyze the body’s cellular reactions. Everything that can be seen in a physical biology is either made up of proteins or is the result of the functions of those proteins.

One way genetic engineering works is by physically removing a gene from one organism and inserting it into another, giving the organism the potential ability to express the trait encoded by that inserted gene. The gene with desired traits must be coated and copied from thousands of genes that had been collected. This is called Gene Cloning. Repetitive gene cloning contributes to Genetic Mutations that are inherited in the organism’s offspring, that can eventually destroy the original DNA imprint. The new gene clone is called a Transgene and is delivered into the cells of the recipient organism to generate some level of genetic transformation. The most common way to transform the transgene is to insert it into a bacteria or virus and then deliver it into the cells of the organism that is being engineered. Another method shoots microscopic gold particles coated with copies of the transgene into the cells of the recipient organism.

Genetic engineers using this method have little control over where the transgene inserts itself into the genome, and it may take many attempts to achieve a few viable transgenic organisms ready for breeding. Once transgenic organisms are created traditional breeding is used to improve the characteristics of the final product or genetically engineered creation. Genetic engineering is a way to add new traits to the gene pool of an organism, using anything in nature from a plant or animal to a human being. As many of us realize, the exact same process has occurred with the genetic engineering used for Alien Hybridization methods in certain bloodlines of humanity, in order to achieve certain results that either enhance traits or degrade traits of the organic human body. The more genetic engineering the human body has endured, to be spliced with multiple other species such as black hole entities, the more the body loses its ability to activate original DNA and resume its organic function.

Mind Wars

Since World War II, there has been a major revolution in regard to militarization and approach to warfare as a result of the major world governments making contact with negative aliens, who introduced to them an array of advanced technologies in exchange for access to human genetics, breeding programs and earth resources. During this phase of setting up covert military programs to experiment with these alien based advanced technologies, it became common knowledge in the secret intelligence factions that human brain waves and behavior can be influenced or controlled through exposures to light and sound or electromagnetic frequencies. Certain electromagnetic exposures are invisible and can change the way the brain processes information while influencing specific conditions in the mind and body, many times without the person’s awareness. The methods used to approach warfare against enemies changed rapidly, toward total control over humanities biological processes through combinations of exposures to a spectrum of electromagnetic fields. Through targeting the human Brain and Bio-Neurology, the mind, body and soul can be manipulated to control thoughts and emotions, transmit suggestions, interfere with long and short term memory, insert images, run audio and sensory experiences, and take control over autonomic and voluntary functions of the body. The goal is to confuse or destroy the organic signals that normally keep the mind and body in a state of balance and equilibrium, while shutting down the Genetic Switches that are responsible for DNA signaling in the human body.

The earliest stages of development in these electromagnetic technologies were used to perform research and experiments on soldiers to increase their performance in battle, while using the same methods to destroy their enemies. The Department of Defense used hundreds of thousands of military personnel in human experiments for intentional exposure to dangerous and lethal substances. Thus, a new class of militarized weapons based on the electromagnetic field was added to the military complex. In the mid 1950’s there was a battle between these intelligence factions for total control over these hidden technologies, and for the destructive use of waging a silent mind war against the global population in order to achieve world domination and slavery. This was backed by the Negative Aliens to split these warmongering cabal factions into smaller compartments, which they could better control through divide and conquer Psychological Warfare. This infiltration by the NAA led to the targeting of civilian populations by the human military, which began to use deliberate deception and mind control weapons in order to get the effects that the intelligence operations desired, as in Brainwashing.

The use of light and sound to stimulate Brain Waves can be used to modify and change a person’s brain activity, thought processes and behavior in a relatively short period of time. What is little understood is that this can also be used to alter the natural function of DNA signaling in the human body, turning on and off Genetic Switches in the human body. The strength it takes to gain control over our mental function is similar to the strength required to build the muscles in our bodies. Obviously these techniques to gain control over the mind can be used in productive and healthy ways to help heal the brain wave patterns, or they can be used in destructive and harmful ways that fracture the mind and soul. In Mind Control, he who controls the mind also controls the soul, the source of electromagnetic energy and consciousness of that person. As a result, the world governments engaged in extensive programs of unethical human experimentation in order to develop technological warfare methods for controlling human behavior and disrupting the thought patterns of humanity for many covert purposes. By overriding the natural rhythm of the brain patterns and brain waves, chemical reactions are triggered which alter the mental and emotional state of the population. This use is a form of Pavlovian Classical Conditioning in order to shape learned behavior so that people more easily accept mind control broadcasts and social engineering methods, like Learned Helplessness and All or Nothing Thinking.

External ELF Signals Brain Response

To impact and manipulate human consciousness all that is required is to create a complex signal, through a Frequency Following Response (FFR), when the brain locks onto an external signal coming from the environment and the Neurons begin to mirror that signal. The signal can be a carrier wave in a Spectrum of Frequency that is designed to create feelings of distress or trigger emotional pain. As a result the brain chemistry alters and changes, generally plummeting the person’s consciousness into a range of lower negative emotions with confused and fragmented perceptions. Large populations can be sent broadcast frequencies that are designed to incite agitation, aggression or anxiety in specific demographic areas. Then the Controllers may put out news feeds in the mainstream media to incite fear, blame and promote sensationalism and victimization language, in order to single out certain marginalized groups for the intentional targeting. In the current mainstream news can you spot where this exact psychological warfare tactic is happening now? This is the divide and conquer psychological warfare strategy so that humans will perceive other humans as the enemy, thereby inciting violence, rape, hostility and criminal behaviors. It is possible to modulate signals on any electromagnetic carrier for transmitting a message into the brain to alter chemistry, insert thoughtforms, and instigate behaviors for shaping or grooming that person to carry out some harmful or criminal action.

Electromagnetic fields act as modulators of molecular based information transfer, they can intercept and modify the processes of molecular interaction within a human body, in any kind of organism. As an example, the Molecular Information Transfer of the Nucleic Acids in human DNA can be altered, modified or reversed when exposed to programmable broadcasts of electromagnetic fields, such as with ELFs. As a result electromagnetic fields can be used to control genetic switches or influence bio-chemical pathways and are capable of eliciting a range of effects inside a living organism, as well as in controlled environments or something taking place outside of living organisms. Exposures to electromagnetism affect organisms in both negative and positive ways that are related to physiological processes, and the reaction is also connected to the genetic configuration and the consciousness level of the organism. The organism that has a lowest range of consciousness perception, is generally the most impacted from the impulses coming from the Unconscious Mind. This is another example of how electromagnetic fields can be used for genetic engineering or modification purposes, by interfering with the Bio-Neurology and the body’s natural biological system of information flow and transfer between DNA, RNA and Proteins.

When we have a better comprehension of how Mind Control is used in every day mainstream media to produce divide and conquer belief systems, we can better discern the agenda and refuse to participate with it. The antidote to mind control broadcasts is connecting with your inner spirit, and developing your spiritual self every day with higher emotional qualities like Empathy and Compassion, and genuinely caring about what happens to the people and the planet.
