NEGATIVE ALIEN AGENDAS ~ Lisa Renee on “Pestilence Armageddon Software”

“So because they haven’t been able to get World War III going, what they are doing right now is they’re going for pestilence. That’s what the whole swine flu crap is about — if they can get us all flipped out about sickness and ‘we’re all going to die’ — then they can use that as a control mechanism. Because the whole thing with the swine flu is using nano-technologies that break down our gene pool and our genetics, so we become biological clones and robots and we can’t connect to our soul anymore and basically we’ll just do whatever the heck they want us to do, if they want to depopulate two thirds of us, or whatever it is they want. Because they are seeking to control whatever massive territory they have left down here. There are some of us that are outside the frequency fence, and I think they are realizing a few got out of here, but they’re focusing on the masses. There are quite a few they’ve got dibs on because so few people know how to empower themselves and actually connect to their spirit and their soul and their God Source. Their focus seems to be the pestilence. That’s where they’re going — illness, disease and killing off people. So that’s how all that’s going to play out, because we’re seeing they’re starting to try to institute mandatory vaccinations through the state government level.”

AMY SCHER: “3 Simple Rules For Protecting Yourself From Energy Vampires”

Ascension Avatar note: I haven’t tried these methods yet, but the ‘Tarzan’ chest-beating exercise brought a good laugh. Can you imagine doing this in public? It just might do the trick, and would probably send most ‘energy vampires’ running for the hills!

.   .   .

“Thumping a gland in the center of your chest, called the thymus gland, gives you an immune system boost and is also effective for calming fear and balancing your entire system quickly. Simply use your fist and ‘thump’ like Tarzan for about 30 seconds and some big deep breaths.”

~Amy Scher

 

Energy vampires are all around us. Here are a few tools you can use to protect yourself!

The human body generates an electromagnetic field. When that field is easily disrupted, it can manifest in many ways including being ‘sensitive’ to people and environments. You might recognize the feelings of being a sensitive soul. Being around a certain someone puts you in a bad mood. Having to go into a crowded party overwhelms you. When someone isn’t happy with you, you feel as if you’re being physically attacked.

Being energetically sensitive means that you’re picking up on and absorbing negative energy from those around you. You’re not just moody! Great news, right?

Having a strong and balanced energy system is the best way I’ve learned to stay protected from energy vampires. Do this daily and you’ll have a little routine that will help strengthen your system so you can be anywhere, at any time, and feel calm and confident.

3 Simple Rules For Protecting Yourself From Energy Vampires

Rule #1: Balance

Make sure your energy system is strong and balanced. There are many ways to do this but one of my favorites is the “thymus thump.” Thumping a gland in the center of your chest, called the thymus gland, gives you an immune system boost and is also effective for calming fear and balancing your entire system quickly. Simply use your fist and “thump” like Tarzan for about 30 seconds and some big deep breaths.

Rule #2: Ground

Ground your energy. The more grounded, or connected to the earth’s energies you are, the less shaken you’ll be by your environment. A great way to “ground” is by literally pulling your energy down through your feet.

Place your hands at the sides of your waist. With your thumb in the front and fingers toward the back, slide your hands slowly and firmly down your legs. When you get to your feet, squeeze at the sides of your feet. Doing this on grass, dirt, or sand makes it even more powerful.

Rule #3: Protect

By tracing your central meridian, an energy pathway running up the front of your body, also highly attuned to thoughts and emotions, you are able to strengthen it.

Place your hands at the bottom end of the central meridian, which is at your pubic bone. Inhale deeply as you simultaneously pull your hands straight up the center of your body, to your lower lip. Repeat three times. With the electromagnetic force of your hands, you are literally moving the energy in the meridian in the direction of its strength and in turn, the meridian is strengthening you. While doing this exercise, you can also add an affirmation such as “I am safe and protected”.

Breathe! Breathing allows energy movement in your body. If you hold your breath in crowds or around difficult people, you are actually preventing any negative energy from movinʼ right through you.

Cross your arms/legs when feeling energetically vulnerable. This actually protects your aura and creates an energetic shield. Negative energy being directed at you will tend to bounce off of you and return to the sender.

Pick your location wisely. Stand by a window or door in crowds and avoid sitting at the front of a class or room where people direct their energy toward you.

Black tourmaline, a crystal that can be purchased for just a couple of dollars, is an excellent negative energy absorber. Put it in your pocket, purse, or just keep it close by when feeling vulnerable.

Now you have lots of minute-or-less tools to keep you balanced, grounded, and protected. Just don’t forget, they only work if you use them.

Ahhh, doesn’t that feel better already?

LISA RENEE (Time Shift Blog): “Pestilence Program”

Dear ES Family,

As we enter into 2019, at this time so many people that are near and dear to us, many people around us are undergoing a major consciousness shift in the foundation of their identity. As many of us are well aware, this can appear to be a major life upheaval, and thus this period of time can be extremely challenging for many people. We are enduring stages of the planetary dark night of the soul, whether consciously on the spiritual path, or unconsciously on the spiritual path. We are all engaged at some level of this combination of dismantling and its result, which is designed to catalyze a personal renewal process that changes our direction in life. Recently, the larger collective consciousness themes are surfacing around any power struggles or conflicts that exist in the nature of our current station of identity. This includes all of the structures around us and in our environment that reinforce the beliefs we have about our core identity, or how we experience our sense of self in this world.

So many of us in this spiritual family, many humans on the earth right now are undergoing a deep level of change in their core foundation that supported their current station of identity. When that foundation cracks, if the foundation has been built upon deception, or a lack of seeing the whole truth, these cracks weaken the core foundation and the people, places and things that were reinforcing our environment start to crumble away. We are seeing these cracks surface now into view, and this is the blessing which allows us to strengthen and solidify our core and our spiritual foundation. To know that when we intend to build the house for our inner spirit, we build it on the permanent strength and foundation that is based in truth.

This is a time of inquiring on the nature of truth. What truth means to us. How do we speak truth, live truth, think truth to the best of our ability, while being a human being, on a planet undergoing the chaotic event of consciousness liberation. We must seek to understand ourselves while navigating on a prison planet, and begin to forgive ourselves for allowing the anti-human conditions in which we find ourselves living within on this planet today. However, every time we undergo a significant breaking apart of foundation, it can impact the deeper part our ability to trust, to trust the universe, to trust God, to trust ourselves, and to ultimately know who we can trust and how to trust others. When we break down our identity and that which had reinforced that identity, we can lose trust in the entire spiritual ascension process.

In holding that awareness that many beloved human beings around us are enduring a crisis of faith, and are also enduring a crisis of truth. Things in the external are confusing, and we need to take the time out to get clear about the necessity to break down the areas in one’s life where deceptions have been built upon something in our sense of identity, that have created illusions and self-deceptions. Which ultimately, in the longer term, can harm us if they are not corrected.

Understanding these cracks in the firmament are that which we are sensing, maybe in terms of loved ones near us undergoing massive shifts in their identity, in their reinforcements of identity, whatever that environment may have been. Our relationships are undergoing big changes right now. Our relationships are a type of reinforcement of our identity, our significant other, our boyfriend, girlfriend or spouse, our family members, our jobs or careers, methods of which we interact with the world at large, all of this has levels of reinforcing our identity every day to define what we do in this world. This is undergoing shifts in the core foundation, at every level. Being patient, holding inner stillness as an observer to the process of change, helps this shifting through the core foundation of identity to be much easier and smoother at this time. To bring compassionate understanding to those around us that we may see in our own communities, and in our own families, while in our work environments, whatever it may be. Note that the common theme we may see is the breaking down of foundation in people, places or things, which have been built either on deceptions, lies of omission, denials, or a lack of understanding the larger picture. When structures break down reinforcements, many times there is a surface purge of miasmatic debris, dead energy, or previous obsolete patterns, and the combined weight of these forces in our body can manifest into ascension flu, assorted dropping density symptoms, or other types of physical illness.

As a result of the energetic terrain shifting in the collective field, I’d like to share that since December, the acute focus has been the awareness of an assortment of Pestilence Programs surfacing in the planetary field, that appear to be the result of both an organic process of shifting massive amounts of collective miasma, combined with negative forces capitalizing on disease programming in order to suppress those awakening or shifting into higher embodiment stages. Essentially, to keep awakening people feeling mired in physical disease programs and the medical turnstile. Many of these disease programs are from many years past, previous timelines, such as the energy signature of the Bubonic Plague, which has been present over the last 30 days. As some of us are aware, the spraying of disease patterns into the collective consciousness grids both through electromagnetic means, and chemtrail spraying of pathogenic cocktails, are genetic modification methods used to control gene expression in an awakening public. By intentionally routing awakening people into the medical system merry-go-round to seek help for unusual physical symptoms, this works to keep people distracted from really what is happening, while suppressing their awakening potential.

Thus, at this time, please be aware that there is a full spectrum electromagnetic assault of Pestilence Programming being targeted in sweeps into the planetary grid networks. This seems to have additional specific targeting to those who do grid work, and work in the planetary field in some capacity, designed as retaliation by Luciferian forces, who are not happy with our recent achievements in the Albion-Cathar body in United Kingdom, France, Spain and Brazil. Please educate yourself about Armageddon Software and its third mode of targeting, the horseman pulsing of the pestilence program, which is an electromagnetic assault of an assortment of disease programs that are pulsed into the collective miasma in the lower dimensions, usually in the phantom or dead energy layers, embedded in the Qlippoth dead shells of negative forms.

Thus, this may be the time to apply special care to the physical body, and to help the body clear disease programs, and the potential blood infection (sepsis) stemming from the miasmatic clouds surfacing in the collective fields. Some recent clearings have surfaced in the field in regard to Coxsackie Virus, Bubonic Plague, Mycoplasma Pneumonia, Lyme Disease, German Measles (Rubella), Avian Bird Flus. Each of these pathogenic organisms have specific energy signatures that are connected to demonic gestalts and black magic, as well as reversal energies running circuitry in the body, which interferes with proper life force flow in the internal channels and generates issues that the medical professionals call cancer. Pay attention, get the rest you require, and do whatever you can and have available to you to take good care of your body and strengthen immunity.

For now, here is more on Pestilence programming from the Ascension Glossary, to know how to clear it, is to first know that it exists.

Pestilence Program

The definition of a Pestilence is any infectious, fatal disease that is widespread or an evil influence or deliverer. An example of a pestilence is the bubonic plague. A disease that causes widespread crop damage or animal deaths can also be called a pestilence. In its Biblical use it generally indicates that these are otherworldy visitations that act as consequences to evil or immoral behavior. The word is most frequently used in the prophetic books, and it occurs 25 times in Jeremiah and Ezekiel, always associated with the sword and famine. In 4 other passages it is combined with noisome or evil beasts, or war. [1]

Infection

Infection is the invasion of an organism’s body tissues by disease-causing agents, their multiplication, and the reaction of host tissues to the infectious agents and the toxins they produce. Infectious disease, also known as transmissible disease or communicable disease, is illness resulting from an infection.

Infections are caused by infectious agents including viruses, viroids, prions, bacteria, nematodes such as parasitic roundworms and pinworms, arthropods such as ticks, mites, fleas, and lice, fungi such as ringworm, and other macroparasites such as tapeworms and other helminths.[2]

Bubonic Plague

Bubonic Plague is one of three types of plague caused by bacterium Yersinia pestis. One to seven days after exposure to the bacteria, flu-like symptoms develop.These include fever, headaches, and vomiting. Swollen and painful lymph nodes occur in the area closest to where the bacteria entered the skin. Occasionally the swollen lymph nodes may break open.

The three types of plague are the result of the route of infection: bubonic plague, septicemic plague, and pneumonic plague. Bubonic plague is mainly spread by infected fleas from small animals. It may also result from exposure to the body fluids from a dead plague-infected animal. In the bubonic form of plague, the bacteria enter through the skin through a flea bite and travel via the lymphatic vessels to a lymph node, causing it to swell. Diagnosis is made by finding the bacteria in the blood, sputum, or fluid from lymph nodes.[3]

Armageddon Software

The Armageddon Software programs, such as War, Pestilence and Cataclysm fears, or many other fear programs which can be interchanged as they are similar bio-warfare Mind Control programs used on the earth to suppress human consciousness. This is a Psycho-Spiritual Warfare strategy used against humanity by the Negative Aliens through their False Gods and False Father Satanic religions to use SRA to repeatedly kill and torture humans through war. The Armageddon Software is the companion Mind Control system which is activated through the Crucifixion Implants as a Holographic Insert in the planetary body and human body. The Jehovian Grids and the Jehovah religions are used to power up these NAA Violent Religions to increase fear, terror and wars over of God.

Horseman Of Apocalypse

Though theologians and popular culture differ on the first Horseman, the four riders are often seen as symbolizing Conquest or Pestilence (and less frequently, the Christ or the Antichrist), War, Famine, and Death. [4]

Pestilence Program = Vaccination

Recently, there has been media spin promoting disease programming through the aggressive creation of fear and the push for legalizing forced vaccinations of children and hospital workers. Many articles have been posted recently in the news by medical professionals urging you to vaccinate, combined with a variety of public relation messages to urge people to trust our health to the medical system professional. This implies the average person is unintelligent and incapable in regards to managing their own health and body, and the pushed Propaganda is to give our power fully over to the people that make multiple billions in revenue from the medical and pharmaceutical industry. Who with common sense can truly believe that these drug companies have our families health and wellbeing as their first priority? This is a perfect example of Psycho-Spiritual Warfare (mind control) operation directed to the public to create panic around the medical agenda to prescribe as many pharmaceuticals and vaccinations as possible, without people questioning or performing due diligence on what they are actually being injected with or swallowing. The hard question to ask is who is benefiting from this propaganda, and why are they pushing Vaccinations and saturating the media with commercials to ask the “friendly doctors you can trust” on the latest pharmaceutical or medical device so aggressively now?

It is blaringly obvious that there is a massive conflict of interest between the public’s health and wellbeing that stands between the billions of dollars generated to the Pharmaceutical companies and their medical representatives. No sane person can refute this, it is fact. Happy drug commercials with smiling paid actors to hide following the trail of money is just one of the agendas at work to pull the wool over people’s eyes. We are not even addressing the sinister details of the NAA eugenicist program that is actually behind this propaganda of pushing the vaccine and pharmaceutical agenda. This is just about plain common sense and following the money to see who actually gets paid incredible amounts of money in order to carry out the Armageddon Software which includes the Pestilence program. [5] (See Vaccinations)

Neurological Toxins

We can be blocked from receiving these higher frequencies transmitted during the Ascension Cycle, even when we are directly exposed to them, from excessive distraction in materialism, being bombarded with low ELF or radio waves, or from uncleared accumulated negativity and toxic exposures. There is tremendous amount of chaotic forces being purposely spread in order to confuse, obfuscate, distract and trap the masses into very low frequency behaviors that continually drain their energies. Additionally, on planet earth we are exposed to an array of neurological toxins designed to impair the organic functioning of the autonomic nervous system and keep brain wave activity in high stress states. Pharmaceuticals, vaccinations, Chemtrails, ELF, radio wave and wi-fi exposures, genetic modified foods, preservatives, aspartame and recreational drugs are all designed to impair or damage the nervous system over a period of time with continued exposure, dulling the higher sensory ability and suppressing Consciousness of the human being. When we become aware of the potentially harmful effects hidden inside the push of mass consumerism, we can make better choices to protect ourselves and our energies from being unconsciously drained by these forces using Consumptive Modeling to push their products on us.[6]

Genetic Engineering

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. Bacterium and virus can be used in the spraying of Chemtrails that have carriers with genetically labbed organisms that are intentionally designed to insert genes to carry certain infections used for gene transcription, and to which the Pestilence agenda remains unseen and largely unknown by the masses. The gene with the desired traits must be coated and copied from thousands of genes that had been collected, and then inserted, injected or inhaled in the targeted groups. This process is also called Gene Cloning. See Mind Controlled Gene Expression. [7]

Nanotech Weapons and Morgellons

Nanotechnology weapons such as Morgellons are self replicating hollow fibers that are designed to read out the light finger print code of the DNA of the person infected with the Alien Implants technology and transform it to a signal that is detectable to be tracked, tested and harvested. It appears to be self-assembly nanobot technology related to transhumanist agenda of the Archons for artificial light harvesting.

For a moment holding in our heart and loving prayer for all of those that may not be feeling well, or are dealing with the collective disease programming during the ascension cycle. May all be strengthened and spiritually healed through peace and unconditional love. To know this peace and unconditional love in their own experience and to extend this peace and unconditional love to their brothers, sisters and friends throughout the community. May we hold this intention of brotherhood, sisterhood, peace and love and perfect health throughout our ES Community now. As we move into this new year cycle, may we all be strengthened and healed in our spiritual community and beyond, to feel the palpable peace and unconditional love that is offered through our direct connection with God Source, that lends us radiant health and energetic balance.

May perfect health bless you,

Lisa

LISA RENEE: “Physical Health Upgrade” — Guided Healing DNA Activation Meditation

Transcript

We’re going to set the space, and as we do we call upon our Guardian Teams, our Councils of Greater God self, the Evolution support teams for the Starseed Identity Matrix, those beloved defenders and families aligned to the Law of One mission, to work together for the highest capacity of exchange of God’s Infinite Light, Infinite Love and Infinite Power in Divine right order and harmony. As we set our space, individually, I ask that you put yourself in your own shield, those of you that work with the 12th dimensional shield, please fortify and activate that individually, and those that are not fully versed in the 12D shield, just see yourself completely immersed in a platinum field of light, circular, protecting your entire body, your entire aura and we’re going to again command, through the sovereign freedom, that which is connected to Unity consciousness…I am God, I am Sovereign, I am Free…feel that shield protecting you, supporting you and connecting you into your infinite God Source.

Now as we open our group field, as we open our group consciousness field and we ask our beloveds, opening in our counterclockwise motion in to the full expansion of the Celestial Force of One Light.

MARK DAVID: “9 Reasons You Need To Be Giving and Receiving Hugs Everyday”

cats-hugging-11162010-12.jpg

Hugging helps the immune system, cures depression, reduces stress and induces sleep. It’s invigorating, rejuvenating and has no unpleasant side effects. It is all natural, organic, naturally sweet, no pesticides, no preservatives, no artificial ingredients and 100 percent wholesome. There are no batteries to wear out, no periodic check-ups, low energy consumption, high energy yield, inflation proof, nonfattening, no monthly payments, theft-proof, nontaxable, nonpolluting and, of course, fully returnable. Hugging is practically perfect, with the only exception that it can’t recreate the wheel. Here are 9 reasons you need hugs everyday.

A famous quote by psychotherapist Virginia Satir goes, “We need 4 hugs a day for survival. We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for growth.” Whether those exact numbers have been scientifically proven remains to be seen, but there is a great deal of scientific evidence related to the importance of hugs and physical contact.

1. STIMULATES OXYTOCIN
Oxytocin is a neurotransmitter that acts on the limbic system, the brain’s emotional centre, promoting feelings of contentment, reducing anxiety and stress, and even making mammals monogamous. It is the hormone responsible for us all being here today. You see this little gem is released during childbirth, making our mothers forget about all of the excruciating pain they endured expelling us from their bodies and making them want to still love and spend time with us. New research from the University of California suggests that it has a similarly civilising effect on human males, making them more affectionate and better at forming relationships and social bonding. And it dramatically increased the libido and sexual performance of test subjects. When we hug someone, oxytocin is released into our bodies by our pituitary gland, lowering both our heart rates and our cortisol levels. Cortisol is the hormone responsible for stress, high blood pressure, and heart disease.

2. CULTIVATES PATIENCE
Connections are fostered when people take the time to appreciate and acknowledge one another. A hug is one of the easiest ways to show appreciation and acknowledgement of another person. The world is a busy, hustle-bustle place and we’re constantly rushing to the next task. By slowing down and taking a moment to offer sincere hugs throughout the day, we’re benefiting ourselves, others, and cultivating better patience within ourselves.

3. PREVENTS DISEASE
Affection also has a direct response on the reduction of stress which prevents many diseases. The Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami School of Medicine says it has carried out more than 100 studies into touch and found evidence of significant effects, including faster growth in premature babies, reduced pain, decreased autoimmune disease symptoms, lowered glucose levels in children with diabetes, and improved immune systems in people with cancer.

4. STIMULATES THYMUS GLAND
Hugs strengthen the immune system. The gentle pressure on the sternum and the emotional charge this creates activates the Solar Plexus Chakra. This stimulates the thymus gland, which regulates and balances the body’s production of white blood cells, which keep you healthy and disease free.

5. COMMUNICATION WITHOUT SAYING A WORD
Almost 70 percent of communication is nonverbal. The interpretation of body language can be based on a single gesture and hugging is an excellent method of expressing yourself nonverbally to another human being or animal. Not only can they feel the love and care in your embrace, but they can actually be receptive enough to pay it forward to others based on your initiative alone.

6. SELF-ESTEEM

Hugging boosts self-esteem, especially in children. The tactile sense is all-important in infants. A baby recognizes its parents initially by touch. From the time we’re born our family’s touch shows us that we’re loved and special. The associations of self-worth and tactile sensations from our early years are still imbedded in our nervous system as adults. The cuddles we received from our Mom and Dad while growing up remain imprinted at a cellular level, and hugs remind us at a somatic level of that. Hugs, therefore, connect us to our ability to self love.

7. STIMULATES DOPAMINE
Everything everyone does involves protecting and triggering dopamine flow. Low dopamine levels play a role in the neurodegenerative disease Parkinson’s as well as mood disorders such as depression. Dopamine is responsible for giving us that feel-good feeling, and it’s also responsible for motivation! Hugs stimulate brains to release dopamine, the pleasure hormone. Dopamine sensors are the areas that many stimulating drugs such as cocaine and methamphetamine target. The presence of a certain kinds of dopamine receptors are also associated with sensation-seeking.

8. STIMULATES SEROTONIN
Reaching out and hugging releases endorphins and serotonin into the blood vessels and the released endorphins and serotonin cause pleasure and negate pain and sadness and decrease the chances of getting heart problems, helps fight excess weight and prolongs life. Even the cuddling of pets has a soothing effect that reduces the stress levels. Hugging for an extended time lifts one’s serotonin levels, elevating mood and creating happiness.

9. PARASYMPATHETIC BALANCE
Hugs balance out the nervous system. The skin contains a network of tiny, egg-shaped pressure centres called Pacinian corpuscles that can sense touch and which are in contact with the brain through the vagus nerve. The galvanic skin response of someone receiving and giving a hug shows a change in skin conductance. The effect in moisture and electricity in the skin suggests a more balanced state in the nervous system – parasympathetic.

I’ll leave you with the wonderful real life story of Juan Mann, a man whose sole mission was to reach out and hug a stranger put a smile on their face. In this age of social-disconnection most all of us lack that simple human touch from another, the effects of the Free Hugs Campaign are now felt around the globe.
