Quantum Timeline Collapses / Quantum Jumps

"These quantum timeline collapses/jumps are huge lately loves. A collapse PUSHES you.... to step it up... these are bigger/huger than ever before, so the push is bigger.... you don't get to keep playing in the old, you don't get to slack and live from that safe place of unconsciousness anymore.

YOU will be challenged and you'll have to deal with anything not in-alignment with your higher consciousness existence.

Realities are collapsing in every way for those who are at the point of "getting the point".... Where do you let other's chaos become yours?

Where do you go unconscious or do you become more conscious, aware and deal with appropriately?

We've had 2 days of Diamond Razor Frequencies (the day before yesterday and today). These cut through the chit. Literally. They put everything in your face, trigger anything that's not okay, got to be resolved, dealt with... yesterday we had super mega high solar winds, kicked our linear butts to where we could not hardly work/function and just had to get through it by shifting how we function.....

Today, super strong razors again. These go for the jugular, make that which was not visible before visible and they bring frenetic/chaotic/scattered energies.... panic for those who are now faced with dealing.

These are BEYOND POWERFUL frequencies loves. You are going to be challenged to HOLD THE NEW IN PLACE, check yourselves to see where you are coming from, as the higher we go, the deeper we go and these "cut to the core" and bring all human'ness/separation/lack to the forefront... make all visible.

They also require YOU to hold your higher realities in place, as the human aspect will go ballistic in these.....

YOU have to see which aspect you are, for if you have any human'ness left, it's gonna get triggered.... it's the point. HOW you maneuver, how you deal, where you come from, what you still allow... this is key here.

These are "stop the bullshit" frequencies... not "others out there".... you. When others bring their chaos, lack and disrespect to you, you will have to deal with it... as love and power... simultaneously. This is MASTERING the PHYSICAL...

Yesterday was PURE HEART OPENING... deeply profound, deeply beautiful, deeply sacred. These are the opposite. More love & more triggers, all in less than 24 hours....

These frequencies basically "will throw you about"... 
if you are not present, centered and functioning from the depth of your own inner power and purity.....

We are having to STOP OLD PROGRAMS in their tracks with these. No more playtime in the old human games.

Pay attention... check your own emotions and mindsets and see what is going on with you. 

Human is obnoxious, impositional, pushy, doesn't get it yet. Often, it will be up to you to RE-EDUCATE according to your own higher understandings through your inner wisdom heart-soul.

Human aspects just waking up don't realize or understand... they also don't want to hear it or deal with it. 

Those times (vibrations) are over. This is WHY those physical realities are collapsing. They were built on separation consciousness (unconsciousness).

Here we go. More profound, more love, more magic, more awesome and more chit being triggered so it can be visible for you to choose.... This is how it is ....

Do you get sucked into other's collapses while they work their own stuff out?

Do you take their own inner/outer battle and fight on as your own?

Do you try to take their experience away from them or do you require that they come from love and respect too?

Do you hold the new in place or do you go back to old earth realities to try to play again/still?

WE are always in "Choice Point" now loves..... Peace, bliss and magic are a result of holding higher consciousness realities in place. You can't have both. Or you are not done yet. ♥

I love you. These powerful Diamond Light Activation are huge. Physical realities will be rocked when they are not built on the foundation of purity and love as a soul here. ♦ "

Crystal Cox Free Speech Case, April 2014 Supreme Court Filing Pro Se https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkYW7nl4774
The Truth is the TRUTH. The Truth is not Republican or Democrat or any other part. The Truth has no color, no religion, no race, no side. It is Simply the Truth. The TRUTH is biased as it is the TRUTH. The TRUTH is not about presenting both sides. It is Either the actual TRUTH or it is NOT. The Truth is NOT about calling both sides of a story to see what they say. The TRUTH and True Journalism is about digging through documents, about find the TRUE facts and not asking the people involved. The TRUTH has no side, it is Simply the TRUTH. ~ Investigative Blogger Crystal L. Cox

Ella Kate Reeves-Cullen ~ you have a mission as one of the light holders of the planet to raise your frequency as high as possible

"I've recently achieved full transmutation ;

Biological transmutation – which means transmuting your physical, carbon based body into a silica based one. In other words, not leaving a body behind and experiencing bhardo (physical death), but transmuting your body into a lighter state.

This is built into the 12 Strand Angelic Human DNA Template that was created over 560 million years ago in higher harmonic universes.

Q: Why are we currently incarnated here?

A: To evolve ourselves and the Earth.

Your DNA is directly connected to the Earth

It is a transmitter and receiver.

You can think of it as your bridge to the divine going upward and your connection to the Earth’s core. Even though up and down is simply an illusion created by your brain.

If you are incarnated here at this time, then you have a mission as one of the light holders of the planet to raise your frequency as high as possible to help build critical mass on the planet where we can all ascend the Earth in this current ascension cycle.

Q: How do we raise our frequency?

A: By clearing past energetic blockages, karmic imprints, unnatural seals, and ACTIVATING the dormant DNA that has been waiting for eons to be active.

Q: Why is humanity stuck in a physical, emotional, and mental reality?

A: Because most people only have those corresponding 3 strands of DNA active – that relate to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd chakras. These chakras control issues related to sex and survival, victimization, pain, and suffering, poverty consciousness, and power, ego, and control. 

When we activate strand 4, which corresponds to the HEART chakra, we can evolve past this and be able to truly cultivate unconditional love.

Q: How does spiritual evolution happen?

A: Only through somehow activating the DNA strands that correspond to our Higher self. We have a specific protocol that was given for this using specific sacred scalar wave codes and commands. For example, if you desire to activate your Soul Identity, stationed in dimensions 4, 5, and 6, you need to ACTIVATE strands 4, 5, and 6 of your DNA template.

Once you do that, you become an EMBODIED soul, and will start making all of your free-will choices IN LINE with your soul’s mission.

Every master that has ever been on Earth has had assistance from higher masters with their DNA activation, simply because the Earth cannot accrete enough frequency to allow this to happen naturally.

Q: What typically happens after an Auric Clearing?

A: You feel pristine and clear. It is like heavy weights have been lifted from you and in reality, it has been. Etheric blockages contribute to physical weight on your body. 

So you will definitely feel lighter, more clear, have less voices in your head, and can LISTEN to the voice from your Higher self. 

Drama disappears from your life and you are able to be more pro-active than reactive. Most people are carrying around so much emotional baggage and energetic blockages that they cannot even focus for 10 minutes on something.

Q: What is the purpose of the Karmic Clearing?

A: To clear everything you inherited from your parents and ancestors through the DNA at conception that is not for your Highest good.

Q: What are examples of some of these issues?

A: The main one is POVERTY CONSCIOUSNESS, and the belief that there is NOT ENOUGH, or YOU are NOT ENOUGH.

Also, unworthiness, undeservedness, guilt, victimization, tyranny, lack, limitation, self-doubt, and over 14 specific archetypes and personas that create the shadow self of a person.

If a Karmic Session is NOT done, then when a person gets older, they start to behave just LIKE their parents, even though they consciously resist it. It is because it is programmed into the DNA and unless you do deep inner work to clear the imprints, then you will continue to WALK THE KARMA of your parents and be blind to your own important soul’s mission.

Q: What are the unnatural seals that block natural DNA activation and how do we clear these?

A: They are called the Jehovian Seals.

There are also the Metatronic Implants, Templar Seal, Templar-Axion Seal, Zeta Seal, Crown of Thorns, and cell death programs (which science thinks is NORMAL and has labeled apoptosis).

It is not normal for your cells to commit suicide. It is not normal for people to “die”.

The unnatural seals placed on the human DNA and Earth’s grid by other races has basically done an ENERGETIC CRUCIFIXION to mankind that has shortened life span and kept us in incarnational cycles and the MATRIX.

Q: What typically happens after a J-seal Removal Session?

A: Physical problems you had on the left side of the body dissipate and eventually disappear.

As the seals are located on axiatonal line 7 on the left side of your body. So your neck feels better, you are able to breathe more easily (as one seal is located in the left lung), your left knee loosens up, and since J-seal 3 in the pineal gland is cleared, you can FINALLY connect to your Higher self and be naturally clairvoyant, clairaudient, and do direct manifestation.

Q: Why has this knowledge been hidden?

A: Control. It is easy to control poor, ignorant people who cannot access the higher dimensions of themselves and see the complete reality and perception.

It is more difficult to control someone who has all of their multidimensional and inner sight turned on so they can see and sense the intentions and motives of others.

Q: Is it true that one of the main Human Genome Project scientists said that much of the human DNA has off-planet origins?

A: Yes. And this is the 97% of what scientists call “junk DNA” that is inside the cells that they think does not “do anything” because it doesn’t code for proteins.

These are sequences waiting to come in contact with the right codes and frequency so that they can then ACTIVATE the full capability (brain, body, mind, DNA, soul) of humans.

Once you learn how to activate your DNA, you can learn how to fix the mess that has been done to the DNA and it doesn’t require fancy equipment or labs, simply learning how to direct certain frequency using codes with your intention."

The Big Wave will unleash the Truth and this will stir Chaos in the old paradigm.

"The Big Wave of High Dimensional Frequencies is NOW Coming Through!

The Big Wave will unleash the Truth and this will stir Chaos in the old paradigm. However, the chaos is good because it will mark the end of the false reality and outdated modalities. It will be the beginning of the new Earth reality in the unified field of consciousness.

This Fall 2016 will bring the first stage of the planetary shift; the opening of Ascension portals that will allow all the Star gates to activate.

This is what will truly shift us into a new Earth reality. We will separate from the third dimension and it will not seem as if reality is quite right. There will be a strange Feeling that we have moved some place and the world will seem brighter.

Ultimately, we will see a complete collapse of the current governmental/political and monetary system. ‘Money’ will be rendered obsolete because it will no longer be relevant to the new Earth reality.

After this Collapse has become obvious is when we will be plugged in to the Greater Consciousness and the new Photon Energy of new Earth will emerge.

No one will be able to suppress the free use of the photon energy. This will change our entire existence in to complete Universal Knowledge, including Travel and Education over night. The inner Earth people will introduce technology that will remove all radiation and impurities from the ocean. There is technology that makes everything clean instantly.

We are almost at the time of the most exciting experience you will ever have. For those of us who are ready, it will be more like a Huge Miracle appearing before us. It will be the most wonderful of all occasions. All will be redeemed and reformed in miraculous ways. It Has Begun!"

Data Storage In Crystal Quartz Will Change Everything! - The Crystal Skulls

"You know how much I LOVE talking about new technology, right? Well, this is one that is going to blow your mind, make an excellent case for the Crystal Movement, and also mop the floor with “limited data storage” forever!

There’s a new kind of storage device which many tech companies have been diving into in secret for the past few years, which Hitachi recently came out with a technology they are developing which is essentially a sheet of Quartz Glass, which could potentially save data up to 300 Million Years!

If you didn’t know anything about storage devices that we currently have, but anything from records, CD’s, USB sticks, magnetic tape, none of these can even lay a finger on this new, very impressive technology.

“The prototype is made of a square of quartz two centimeters wide and two millimeters thick. It houses four layers of dots that are created with a femtosecond laser, which produces extremely short pulses of light. The dots represent information in binary form, a standard that should be comprehensible even in the distant future and can be read with a basic optical microscope. Because the layers are embedded, surface erosion would not affect them.” - From the Scientific American Journal

Now, while this is exciting, there’s more to it than just that. See, While Hitachi currently has an actual produceable thing which they will probably start marketing once they figure out a simple means of transferring data to say, computers and television, the basic model they have (see picture above) only has the data storage capacity slightly better than a CD.

But that’s not to say that this tech is doomed, simply that it’s young… and even then, some people are already working on a bigger and better thing!

Scientists in the University of Southhampton in the UK have been developing an even MORE incredible technology. It’s called “Superman” Crystals, and potentially has the storage capacity of up to 350 TB, and can last forever!

Superman graphic

Image Right: A graphic depicting a 5D optical storage writing setup: femtosecond laser, spatial light modulator (SLM), Fourier lens (FL), half-wave plates matrix (»/2 M), dichroic mirror, 1.2 NA water immersion objective, silica glass sample, translation stage. (Image: University of Southhampton)

“The scientists used a femtosecond laser, which emits pulses of light in femtoseconds (one quadrillionth, or one millionth of one billionth of a second). The 5D read/write laser can record up to an estimated 360 TB/disc data capacity on nano-structured glass capable of thermal stability up to 1000°C — and a practically unlimited lifetime. The information encoding comes in five dimensions that include the size and orientation in addition to the three dimensional position of these nano-structures.” - Computerworld

It seems Crystals still got some magic after all . And they don’t have to just be in your pocket, they might be the basis for all of our computers in the future. I mean, they are now, but perhaps even more so. :) -SS

The Crystal Skulls

You’ve all heard of the ancient crystal skulls and the stories that they supposedly contain a repository of knowledge.. Well, the scientists at hitachi may have just revived an ancient advanced technology. It has been said throughout history that the crystal skulls contain ancient knowledge possibly dating back to the time of Atlantis, or  even further.

Information on a grand scale. The skulls are said to contain the answers to human evolution, universal information, planetary information, and most valuable of all, humankind’s destiny and true purpose. The legend claims that at a time of great need, the skulls will be discovered and reunited. The information they provide will save the human race. The legend forewarns, however, that mankind must be able to accept the knowledge morally and spiritually.

This data can seemingly exist forever, enduring extreme temperatures and hostile conditions without degrading… at least until the sun begins to die and expands to consume the earth, that is.

Hitachi researcher Kazuyoshi Torii said that quartz glass is highly stable and resilient material, used to make beakers and other instruments for laboratory use. Due to the medium, the chip is waterproof, resistant to many chemicals and unaffected by radio waves. Even more, it can be exposed directly to high temperature flames and heated to 1,832 Fahrenheit for at least two hours without being damaged.

“We believe data will survive unless this hard glass is broken,” said senior researcher Takao Watanabe.

Rather than storing precious information for mankind in an ordinary piece of quartz that could have been lost in time, the ancients chose to store their wisdom in a receptacle shaped like a human head. These would be used in many rituals and ceremonies, and passed down from generation to generation. In the same way that our human skull protects and holds the brain, a crystal skull is a mind-like container that holds a generational library of knowledge – from ancient history to a blueprint of possible futures.

Enoch's Domed World

Under The Dome - Full Documentary

Published on Jul 12, 2015

The Flat Earth model is a belief that the Earth's shape is a plane or disk. Many ancient cultures have had conceptions of a flat Earth, including Greece. It was also typically held in the aboriginal cultures of the Americas.

They believed in a flat Earth domed by the firmament in the shape of an inverted bowl.

A lot of people today, believe that the Earth is round but they've never seen it from a distance. Not even being on an airplane could reveal the true shape to someone who doesn't know.

Being on top of the highest mountain wouldn't help either. Is NASA and it's friends lying to us about the world?

Keep an open mind. There's no good reason to doubt it. (Production/Narration by Mark Sargent)

Below is the text of the legal statement filed into the case:
On August 16, 2016 porn industry blogger Michael Strother aka Mike South of http://www.MikeSouth.com wrote a post (exhibit A) stating that Sean Matthew Tompkins and Ari Scott Bass posed online (trolled me) as Jennifer Randazza – which is what led me to post the tweets in question (exhibit B) that this lawsuit is based on.
            I have been told by another porn industry blogger known as Kelli Roberts, that Randazza Legal Group was involved in Sean Matthew Tompkins’ acquisition of a website called LukeIsBack.com
            Ari Scott Bass aka Michael Whiteacre was on the initial witness list sent to me from Jennifer Randazza’s legal council (exhibit C).
            The domestic and international organization, the Aids Healthcare Foundation, recently released a press released which states that Michael Strother aka Mike South is a credible blogger / journalist (exhibit D).
Michael Strother told me on Twitter August 13, 2016 that he would take up Mr. Randazza (Marc Randazza’s) offer to sue me if I did not delete the claims I posted online about him being a pimp and being involved in sex trafficking (exhibit E).
            Michael Strother aka Mike South has also stated that to me via email (exhibit F) as of August 15, 2016 that if I don’t apologize to him for stating that he is a pimp (even though he labeled himself a pimp as of December 4, 2002 and November 26, 2002: exhibits G – H) and involved in sex and human trafficking, that he will sue me.
            Michael Strother aka Mike South has a multitude of posts (some in which he recruited civilians for his Bukakke pornographic adult movies which are filmed in Atlanta, Georgia), on a website called http://www.USAsexGuide.info (a website that labels itself as a sex travel / sex tourism guide. Sex Tourism is a form of human and sex trafficking). Strother vouched for illegal prostitute’s sexual performances on the website’s forum and offered recommendations to other posters of the website who were seeking to illegally purchase sex (exhibit I).
In addition from 2002 to 2011 Michael Strother operated a website called http://www.StreetsOfAtlanta.com (exhibit J) which showcased photographs and stated the exact streets in Atlanta where illegal prostitutes could be located.

Strother stated on his own blog MikeSouth.com (exhibit K) that he gained financially from the sexual exploitation of illegal prostitutes, being that the photographs he took of them drew online traffic to his website, which converted into sales of his pornography on his “pay sites”.
Michael Stother aka Mike South emailed me September 5, 2014 (exhibit L) stating that Marc Randazza was receptive to the idea that someone was impersonating Jennifer Randazza and that he felt he could arrange for Marc Randazza to drop this lawsuit against me if I apologized.
Lastly, August 16, 2016 at 2:20pm (PST) Michael Strother aka Mike South sent me an email stating that “several people” are offering him money to get a judgment in Georgia against me to take all of my websites (exhibit M).
            Considering Marc Randazza’s offer to Michael Strother to file a lawsuit against me, I believe that Marc Randazza’s and that of Randazza Legal Group’s actions are that criminal conspiracy & illustrate the abuse the United States judicial system to intimidate me, silence my work on the truth of pornography and organized crime (namely sex and human trafficking), harass me and extort money from me via a legal judgment.
DATED this 16th day of August, 2016.
Pursuant to NRS 53.045, I declare under penalty of
perjury that the foregoing is true and correct.

Lakota Woman (1994) - the Story of the Woman who Survived Wounded Knee.

Sioux Chief Taken Aboard Star Ship

Chief Shares Knowledge About Star Nations, UFO's

Galactic Peace Corp

"Star Nations

Who and what are Star Nations?

Star Nations is the name of the organization of intelligent advanced civilizations in our galaxy - the Milky Way. This is the name that these various star civilizations have given their organization.

And Star Nations is also the name by which these civilizations are known collectively by traditional indigenous people of North America and elsewhere.

There are myriad star civilizations that belong to Star Nations.

These civilizations number well above a million.

There are 1438 star races in contact with Earth, not to mention the many, many more civilizations which are also members of Star Nations.

For a description of the Star Nations member races in most frequent contact with Earth, see: www.drboylan.com/etraces.html

What are the entrance requirements to become a member of Star Nations?

A candidate civilization must be made up of intelligent individuals who have developed to a level of spiritual and cultural advancement where their civilization collectively is in either explicit or implicit conformity with the 11 Universal Laws and the 11 Spiritual Laws of the cosmos.

For a description of those Laws, see www.drboylan.com/11.11laws.html 

The purpose of Star Nations is to serve as an organization of highly intelligent and spiritually developed civilizations which:

1) provides wise general supervision over the star systems which support life;

2) fosters the development of intelligent life where appropriate within star systems and as directed by Source [God];

3) assists in the development of such civilizations by sharing information and guidance to encourage these civilizations to develop to their full intellectual and spiritual potential; and thus in this role Star Nations serves as a sort of galactic Peace Corps;

4) provides protection to civilizations which are still in the earlier stages of development, so that these will not be preyed upon by those morally-undeveloped civilizations which are not members of Star Nations and whose arrested spiritual development allows for immoral predation on the weak and vulnerable.

Thus, in this role Star Nations serves as a galactic police force to keep the peace. In this role Star Nations could somewhat inexactly be compared to Earth’s United Nations Organization and the UN’s Blue Helmets peace-keeping forces.

Earth has been under protection by Star Nations, who have placed a protective cordon around Earth so that Humans are not subject to being preyed upon by any members of civilizations of inferior moral and spiritual development. 

The Star Nations organization is a very ancient organization, having been formed many many millions of years ago.

What is Earth’s future as regards Star Nations? 

If Humans continue to reform and transform their current corrupt, materialistic, ecocidal, power-focused global culture into a peaceful, just, sharing, mutually-supportive, appropriately-spiritual, family-like global civilization with responsible ecological stewardship, and reach consensus to abide by principles consistent with the 11 Universal Laws and 11 Spiritual Laws, then we will have reached a point where we may reasonably expect an invitation from Star Nations to become the latest member civilization of Star Nations.
