3.14 Open Journal Series: 11.27.20

Long time no see.. well no talk.. no type? You know what I mean. Anyway, its been a long time since my last 3.14 post. Why, because the lessons have been POURING in heavy. I have SOOOO much to cover, so let’s just get started.

On the last post I talk about how everything going on is all apart of a pschological war, a war on conciousness, an attempt to keep the masses alseep and controlled. Ultimately to instill FEAR. If you’ve read my book (if you havent your sleep) Love Starts Here: Creating a Life of Love Within for a Life Never Without, you’ll understand the vibration of fear. Fear is an umbrella for emotions like anger, sadness, rage, and jealousy. For traits like racism, actions like violence, and reactions like bodily sickness. Fear is an energy like all things.

I’ve been reading another book by Dr. Joe Dispenza called Becoming Supernatural. In this book he gives scientific facts about how our body is a manifestation of the energy we carry. He mentions how our subconcious is what controls our auto nervous system; aka the system in our body that controls everything we automatically do without thought. Ex: breathing, blinking, digestion, body temp, and all the function of our internal organs. We dont have to think about doing these things.. our auto nervous system controls this for us. What controls the auto nervous system… OUR SUBCONCIOUS. So, when fear is placed into our subconscious mind (through constant repitition, Tell- a- vision, mask wearing, and many other tactics), what do you think the auto nervous system will automaticall manifest in our body? Sickness. Now if that’s not hittin for you and you feel as though you need more proof.. go read the book.

If its not clicking for you by now, im going to flat out tell you FEAR CREATES SICKNESS!!

I dont mean to be too harsh on yall but this is serious business. You have to have a love for yourself to master this universal lesson we’re all learning. You have to take care of your body, listen to its language of symptoms, control your own thoughts, and reprogram your subconious mind. If not, the psyhcologival programming thats going on right now is ging to take hold of you and begin to control your reality.

Till next time..

How to Transition to a Plant Based Lifestyle

If we aren’t being taught how to grow our own food, how to take care of ourselves and our families, and how to live without the need for huge governments, banks, and corporations – as our ancestors once did – then we aren’t being educated; we’re being indoctrinated to be dependent  and subservient to the system.

-Gavin Nascimento

1. Find the Drive

Learning about the truth behind food is exactly what I needed to give me a kick start to taking control over my health.

The world is over populating, we are plagued by a fearful energy that causes greed, egos, hate, and lies. Industries can’t keep up with the demands of a growing world. Instead of truly helping heal, most food industries are after more money. Capitalism is killing us. The way the system is set up, the continuously growing population will continue to even out and money will continue to grow because we’re being fed complete bullshit that deprives our health and our pockets. It’s a system; a scam.

According to the post traumatic slave diet, the dynamic of the African American family is broken. Mom and dad are out working all day and night to keep mouths fed and a roof over the family. We need quick, cheap, and easy meals. In my opinion, the fast food industry is capitalizing off the middle and lower class neighborhoods. Offering unhealthy food for an exchange of convenience and affordability. Our ignorance is depreciating our health everyday. Toxic food is cheap and easily accessible. Yet, healthy food is overpriced and only available in certain places.

The rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and the sick get sicker. 

We Are Consumers

We buy genetically modified foods; designed to make us sick and need prescriptions. We buy prescriptions; designed to cover up symptoms and  keep us buying more. Man-made drugs aren’t meant to heal; they are meant to temporarily cover up symptoms, while causing more in other places of the body. So, we have to keep purchasing them in order to feel good. 

Stats say 680,000 people die yearly from an unhealthy diet and 72,000 people from prescription drugs over car crashes, homicides, and murders. Even more than tobacco and alcohol; those of which are still legal. It’s okay to sell products which will eventually cause diseases but millions of minorities are in jail for possession of a dime bag? The prison industry is a big money maker too; just saying.

*Sips tea and burns more sage*

The companies that make the most money are selling us toxicity. Then, according to the documentary What The Health, those same companies who sell us food to make us sick, sponsor organizations like American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen, and American Diabetes Association to make you think they are out here looking for a cure. 

Many diseases are ultimately the cause of what we put in and on our body. Which is also the only way to cure our body. Get educated and stop the cycle.

EVERYTHING is passed down through genes until healed. We’re talking about our quality of life, our kids, and grand kids  lives now.

The system is built to keep us controlled and dependent on it. Let’s stop letting food and drugs depreciate our health while making a profit. 

Learn a deeper understanding of the vibration food has on our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health in my NEW BOOK!

 

2. Re-Program Your Mental Energy

Ignorant – Lacking knowledge or awareness

Ignorance is not bliss when it comes to understanding what we are feeding our body. We grow up on with no knowledge of healthcare; what nourishes us and what heals us. We eat whatever is sold at the grocery store (that we can afford) not once thinking to look at what’s in it or where it came from. We don’t know what makes us sick; we just assume all humans get sick, it’s a normal part of life. Once we’re sick, we depend on doctors to tell us exactly what to take and for how long. Not even knowing what’s in the drug.It’s so easy to control everyone. Through our ignorance, we listen to whatever “the professionals” tell us through the school system, social media, news, and TELL-A-VISION.

Many things we believe we need and desire in food are things we have been taught, conditioned, and programmed to believe. Our subconscious mind has been fed all sorts of ideas around food and our mind has agreed and made those our reality. This has created our relationship with food. Our brain has constructed our eating habits and It’s difficult to change the brain pattern that’s been building our entire life. So, we must re-program our brain to reprogram our relationship with food and our eating habits. 

If you tell yourself “I could never go plant based.” You my friend, will never go plant-based because you can only achieve what you believe.

Everyone is capable of going plant-based; it’s your mind that’s telling your body you can’t. Your entire body, including your taste buds, listens to what your mind tells it. Your body is following what you keep telling yourself. So, as a result, when you attempt to make the switch, your body is feeling sick, feeling weak, lacking nutrients, and craving foods you once ate because you told your body it wouldn’t sustain itself by eating plant-based.

Transitioning to a plant based diet is very mental. Its unwinding the old beliefs and food propaganda we’ve been consuming since birth. It takes self control, wisdom, patience, and creativity. If we’re not in the right mental state going plant-based is almost impossible. So, we must work on our mind first. Once we get it vibrating higher, our body follows, making it much easier to change and adapt. 

  1. Research – Watch a documentary or read up on plant based nutrition. We must reconstruct our mind to understand the needs of our body through food education.                                                                               https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-GQYK-UrRQ   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1QDkpUPiI8       https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxVR53xemSs
  2. Agree and Affirm – Repeat affirmations to yourself about how you are willing and capable of living on a pant-based diet. Tell yourself you are going to provide your body with the nutrients it needs. In order to change our beliefs and habits we must agree and affirm the new information. 

3. Love Yourself

To have enough self discipline, patience, and drive to transition to plant-based you must put your self love above all else. You must love yourself enough to make the changes necessary and put in the work for a healthier lifestyle. You must love yourself enough to want better for your mind, body, emotions, and spirit. You must love yourself enough to want to break out of the self depreciating cycle you’ve been in.

Ask yourself, “Do I love myself enough to choose not to fill my body with with toxic energy?”

If yes, GREAT.

If no, that’s OKAY. Begin practicing self-love by simply saying “I love myself” out loud. For more self-love practices read my NEW BOOK LOVE STARTS HERE

4. Take it Easy 

Once you make the decision to transition to a plant based lifestyle, be kind to yourself! Take it easy, have cheat days, and shift slowly. Results are better when whining off certain habits slowly; one at at a time and keep building. Cut out one thing, then gradually keep eliminating more things from your diet. 

  • Cut out red meat (pork and beef) consistently for at least 1 month.
  • Cut out poultry (chicken and turkey) consistently for at least 1 month. 
  • Cut out seafood (fish and crustaceans) consistently for at least 1 month.
  • Cut out dairy (milk, cheese, and creams) consistently for at least 1 month.
  • Cut out processed and GMO foods (white sugars, white flours, pre-packaged meals, canned foods, etc) consistently for at least 1 month. 
  • Base your diet around the new plant foods you’ve been gradually consuming for the past 5 months. 

Understand, a plant based diet is PLANT BASED, meaning what we consume is based around plants. This does not mean we can never eat another animal product again. 

Its called balance.

3.14 Open Journal Series: 6.23.2020

In previous blogs I’ve mentioned all the low vibrations the world is experiencing right now, from the pandemic, to child sex trafficking, and racism. Its easy to become overwhelmed by these things we keep hearing about and begin being controlled by fear. We have to feel everything, yes; but we also need to individually and collectively transmute this energy in order to bring the awakening and rebirth written in the stars.

In order to transmute the energy, we must truly understand the lesson we’re being shown. Then, we can find gratitude for learning the fears we need to overcome and begin transmuting those low vibrations to higher ones. Healing our inner world and the world around us. Coming out on the other side stronger and more enlightened than before.

But before this true sense of gratitude can be found we must learn the lesson and begin healing. We must look at the collective projection of the outer world as a mirror to our internal world.

As I look at the racism flooding the world right now, I feel a pain in chest and anger fills my body. Yet, deep down in my heart I feel compassion because I know the white man is only acting in fear. Any low vibrational behavior is rooted in fear. So, the white man is afraid. Of what? You may ask.

That’s exactly the lesson we are going to dissect.

The white man/woman is afraid of something more powerful than him. So, he oppresses, he separates, and he kills what he’s afraid of. Therefore it doesn’t have much power over him.

To me, when I think of the white man/woman, I think ego, worldly, and power in this physical realm. When I think of the black man/womban, I think of soul, spirit, and power in the spiritual realm.

So, if we use the mirror concept and look at what’s going in the external world as a mirror to our collective internal energy. We will see, as a collective, we fear our Godly nature staring back at us. We fear our POWER, SPIRITUALITY, AND STRENGTH.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest is that we are powerful beyond measure. Is is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most.”

Nelson Mandela

We are taught through white-washed religion to fear God. Not realizing we are God. We are made in God’s image. We are awakening as a collective, we’re unlearning conditioning, breaking cycles, and removing barriers that were placed on our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual energy bodies. We are self actualizing the God rising within us. Yet, we are still afraid of it. So, we resist, we suppress, and we try to eliminate the light.

This is not even a black and white issue, its just the physical world is portraying it with that symbolism to help us understand our internal world. When we look at things from a higher perspective we’ll understand this is a battle between ego and soul, dark and light, feminine and masculine. Its the resistance of balance because for so long, we’ve collectively been hanging heavy on the ego side. But this new age brings back the balance of soul. It brings spirituality, unison, and true connection. We are collectively experiencing a spiritual awakening; we must first reach rock bottom before we can soar to new heights. We’re heading towards enlightenment which requires balance in the heart chakra. We must allow our ego and soul to merge in order to create harmony and unconditional love.

So, here we are. We can find gratitude for the meaning behind this lesson we are collectively experiencing. The burning of buildings and destruction of cities seems so dark but its all beautiful in the end. Fire is alchemy, it transforms, it burns old narratives, and from the ashes a phoenix rises. A new enlightened collective world will rise from this. WE WILL RISE!

We just have to allow our light to shine.

Its still fuck 12 tho.

We’ve dissected the lesson from the pandemic and the racial inequality. Next, we will dissect the child trafficking lesson. Stay tuned and stay protected.

3.14 Open Journal Series:6.1.2020

When I noticed people being judgmental and distant toward Asian people at the beginning of this pandemic, I knew this was going to slowly bring back some form of segregation. It was all going to highlight differences and put certain demographics into a steer clear from category. 

Low and behold, the media soon broadcasted loud and proud these fake ass statistics of black people being the highest percentage carrying the virus. Are the stats fake? I think so. But it could also stem from the fact black people are the majority of those deemed essential workers, we have less access to healthcare, and our bodies are systematically unhealthier then others. Who knows.

This is when I knew things were going to start crumbling fast. This was all a plan; a plandemic.

The plan has many angles to hit; separation is one. The age of Aquarius is a new era where seperation is going to change to unison. We are in a time of the pullback, the resistance, where dark is resisting light. So, because this new era will begin uniting us, there methods of dividing people at play. Social distancing is keeping us away from each other. Keeping us from grouping together, having connections with coworkers or store clerks. It has us fearing each other and SEPARATING. 

Racism is being HIGHLIGHTED. It’s nothing new, this country is built on racism. Cops have been killing us forever and before then, they were just dressed different with different names. 12 is just the new name for slave masters. Same people, same act, new generation. But, it’s being HIGHLIGHTED more. Recent police murders have been been booming all over the media; Ahmuad Arberry, Breona Taylor, amongst many others. But the tip of the iceburge was George Floyd. Four cops arrested him for allegedly forging a check, they pinned him to the ground, handcuffed him, and one kept his knee on the neck of this man for 9 minutes. Cutting off his circulation, causing him to lose consciousness, and eventually pass on. All while knowingly being recorded. Some say this killer cop knew George, its been said they worked in the same building…

Hmmmmm…

This murder of another one of our people caused riots, protest, and looting all over the world. Police stations burned down, cars overturned, and white corporation ran all the way through. This is the biggest civil rights act in history; this is the final straw. Cities all over the country, even cities around the globe are using their voice to stand up and fight back. We’re peacefully asking for change but we’re also burning shit down, we’re angry, we’re passionate, and WE ARE FED UP. This is THUG LIFE.

“The hate you give little infants fucks everybody!” 

Tupac Shakur

The thing is, from how I see it, this is part of the plan. A divine plan and a human orchestrated plan. There is a dark side and a light side to the whole thing. 

If you watch the documentary Out of Shadows you’ll see how much influence the CIA has on media outlets. What’s put in the media is put there for a purpose. It just seems odd to me that all this COVID-19 bullshit just went out the window. 2 weeks ago no more than 10 people were allowed to gather, today theres thousands of people shoulder to shoulder. The media went from nonstop coverage of COVID to nonstop coverage of protest. They are controlling the masses. Their plan is working.

A while ago a friend of mine overheard a conversation between two white men while at a gun shop that had been wiped clean. One asked the other if he had been loading up on ammo. The other exclaimed he had, he excitedly said he accrued 78 cases of amo. He was all geared up. Ready. But for what? 

The empty shells of the shop suggested everyone had been out buying guns and amo. There are people who are preparing for something. The conversation suggested there a certain people preparing more than others. What? What do they know that we don’t? Why does one need 78 cases of amo? 

As I see the protest all over social media I see my people exposing the truth of uncover cops and white supremacist coming to start trouble at these protest. Non only undercover but in uniform. They are macing people, shooting rubber bullets, and arresting people everywhere. I see the agenda playing out. Is this what they were preparing for? We’re these riots planned? Are different groups planning to infiltrate and use this as a means of violence, capture, and excessive force on POC. Is this the beginning of a war? Was all of this to enforce Martial Law? My intuition tells me yes.

In psychology there are studies done which show how our emotions effect how we see things in this physically world. Our emotions can make us see illusions. For example, if we are in fear mode for whatever reason and we see a rope, we can mistake the rope for a piousness snake and react in defense against the rope which was never out to get us or as scary as our emotions made it seem. This is an emotional illusion: its all psychological.

Politicians and leaders will often create an emotional illusion when they want to go to war. Fear will be placed in the mind, through the media, creating emotions like anger, rage, and sadness.All to place the masses into defense mode.

We are in a psychological war. War must begin in the mind before it manifest in this physically reality.

This is a pandemic with many angles to hit; all around to bring fear, war, and separation. This is the crumble before the rise. The destruction before rebirth. 

Power up!

Stay spiritually and physically protected. Connect with your ancestors, your living brother and sisters, and solidify your ROD gang. 

Everyone has a different role to play right now. This is all a divine plan but also a plan with a dark side orchestrated by hate groups and low vibrating individuals. 

So, listen TO YOUR ROLE instead of following what everyone else’s is doing. Some people are meant to play the role of protestors; peaceful and violent. Some are meant to stay inside, donate, create, educate, and spread wisdom.

Don’t judge someone else’s assignment because it doesn’t look like yours or align with what you think is the right way. Everyone has a key role to play. We will only win this war as a team playing our correct positions.

LISTEN to your own personal divine assignment and get ready for the ride.

3.14 Open Journal Series:5.30.2020

On my last entry I spoke a little about allergies. How they could be the reason for a sore throat but I sorta stopped associating myself with allergies. I stopped believing they were actually a thing because my theory was that they are manmade. In my brain I have this theory that it starts from vaccination as babies, those ingredients injected into us create different deficits including allergies and poor eyesight, amongst other things. Then, as those allergies develop, we take allergy medicine to keep them going. Because for me, once I stopped taking allergy medicine I didn’t suffer as much. So, I assumed this allergy shit was all manmade, another part of the system, and another angle of preventing us from unlocking our full form. 

My friend asked me the other day what I thought about allergies. I told her my theory, but then I thought about how nature and all reality is just a projection of us. Therefore, everything mirrors us, everything we love, fear, reject, and have any reactions to. So, allergies could very well be keys. Like natures way of showing us what our body rejects and is fearful of. Once we look at the symbolism of what we’re allergic of; the color and over all energy. We can see it’s our body and nature showing us what we need to heal. Now, do I still stand by my theory, absolutely. But this just reminds me everything is never one sided. It’s always a spiritual component and a physical (earthly) component, there’s always a light and dark side. 

This goes back to when a few entries back I mentioned how the reality of this corona, pizzagate, and all the shit going down in the world right now seems so dark and so evil. Yet, it’s all divine. It’s all apart of the yin yang. It’s everything, the duality of reality that light is birthed from darkness, we must crumble before we rise, we must feel pain before we create life, and experience love. We need both sides of the spectrum. Once you embrace The Cycle you see how much darkness increases our light and find gratitude for it, therefore accepting it as a necessary part of life. 

The fact that there are two sides of the yin and yang that make a whole means it’s all one. It’s all spirit, divine, apart of us, the world, and the universe. 

So, though I do often blame a demographic, a nation, and selected families ruling the world for all the darkness on earth. Which is probably true.. ultimately It’s all spirits work. The greatest and toughest to grasp realization I’ve had is that what we know as good and evil, light and dark, God and Satan, heaving and hell, yin and yang are all one. We’ve just given names to two opposing energies that are the the duality of reality. All apart of life. All one. 

“Heaven and hell if you know you that shit is beautiful.”

How to Get Clearer Skin and Whiter Teeth with Oil Pulling

A new morning practice for natural health and beauty!

What is Oil Pulling?

Oil pulling is an ancient form of Ayurveda; detoxification. It has been used for several years India for its natural health and beauty benefits! it is the act of swishing oil in the mouth similar to mouthwash. Only this practice last 10-20 minutes and come with many more benefits!

Benefits 

There are many benefits to oil pulling including:

  • Clear skin
  • Reduction of bad breath
  • Natural teeth whitening
  • Gum strengthening
  • Plaque removal (Swishing the oil for up to 20 min removes plaque and bacteria on and in between teeth.)
  • Hormone balance
  • Detoxification (The mouth holds tons of toxins and bacteria that enter the body if not removed; oil pulling removes those toxins. In the process of removing those toxins from the mouth, oil pulling can also balance bacteria in the gut.)

How To

  1.  First thing in the morning on an empty stomach take a capful (approx. 1 tbsp) of oil and swish the oil around in the mouth (similar to mouthwash) for about 20 minutes. Stretch, listen to affirmations, make your bed, or hop in the shower to pass time!
  2. When 20 min is up DISPOSE OIL in a trash bin NOT THE SINK (will clog drains).
  3. Brush teeth as usual.

Oils to Use

There are tons of oil that can be used for oil pulling; the most popular are coconut, sunflower, and sesame oil. You can use one of these oils, mix them all together, or even purchase an oil specifically for the cause.

The pulling oil I use is a combination of both oils with added peppermint oil for a fresh taste!

I had this realization I was being very optimistic about everything going on. Which is great; but, I was also fooling myself by continuing to suppress my real emotions. You know the meme with the dog in the middle of a fire saying “everything’s fine”? Well, that was me. Though it’s cool to be optimistic, we can’t ignore our emotions. It’s okay to mourn the old while still being grateful for the new. It’s okay to be scared, lost, and worried at times. I had to realize I can’t let the craziness of this world harden me up completely. I cannot become desensitized to tragedy all because I’m trying so hard to keep a smile on my face. Yes, I see the bigger picture. Yes, I see this is all divine. Yes, I know I am protected. But, I never let myself mourn. I never let myself mourn the ability to go outside, go shopping, hang with friends, go eat, or go the museum. I never let myself feel the fact that this is actually very shitty and I’m sad about it. 

After this realization I let myself feel. I cried, I mourned the old reality, the old world, and way of living. When I did this, I felt a huge cleansing and release of pint up emotions I had held back. 

Now I can have peace with the situation. Now I am in harmony and flow. 

Im at the point where I’m not trying to figure it all out anymore. I observe and I use my inner wisdom to see through bullshit. But Im not gonna worry myself to death or be fearful, because this is bigger than me. There are things going on behind closed doors that may not ever be for me figure out. I don’t need to seek darkness but instead be aware. 

Observations 

  • Ive noticed I start to feel a bit of a sore throat when going out in public. Nothing crazy, so don’t trip. I just feel it and I’m aware of it. Now, this could be allergies, but I don’t really suffer from allergies anymore. Ive noticed the sore throat goes away when I return home. Could be the energy of the public, could be the fear in the air, or something that’s airborne. Google Chem Trails.
  • I’ve also noticed all these “stay home” commercials. The stay home saying is being pushed pretty heavily. For our safety? Possibly. But I see they are paying celebrities to make videos telling us to stay home. Then, airing them all day long on Tell-a-vision.  I don’t trust nothing that has a commercial. Period. 
  • Another observation, this virus is bringing out addictions. An addiction is rooted from a need to escape reality. Since the reality of everything going on is pretty shitty right now, most of us are coping with it by escaping. We’re being shown our addictions. Whether they be video games, alcohol, smoking, sex, social media, or T.v., its all coming to the surface. We’re being shown what we need to get a grip on.
  • Lastly, I’ve noticed everything is reminding us how important it is to spend time with our loved ones, slow down, be still, be present, and enjoy the little things. We’re being shown just how much we’ve forgotten to flow.

We may not get this time again, we need to use it to prepare for battle. Build your foundation and get sturdy so you cannot easily topple over when things begin to crumble. Because remember this is the breakdown before the buildup. We are suiting up for fucking battle. But like I said, no need to be afraid because this is growth. We have no triumphs without trials first.

Some of us have been and are still being prepared to play the role of leaders, some are meant to play the role as a participant. None better than the other, just different. If you’re reading this your probably being called to follow your dreams and play out the purpose your intuition has been telling you. It’s an important pieces of the puzzle. It’s your part in healing and raising the vibration. Everyone’s role is needed to be played. We need complete authenticity.

3.14 Open Journal Series: 3.30.2020

We are in a 5 week quarantine here where I am. Other cities and states are two months. Some aren’t on lockdown quite yet. Non essential businesses are closed. Nails, hair, shopping, and some restaurants. Grocery stores, banks, pharmacies, and liquor store are still open. 

People at the grocery store are very hostile. No one wants to speak or look at each other as if the virus is spread through eye contact. People are still hoarding. Numbers are rising, deaths are rising, so the media says. The U.S. is close to China as the most infected country in the world with the most deaths. 

I believe 5G is only aiding in lowering the vibration of the masses. This low vibration along with fear conditioned through the media and a low vibrating immune system makes the body a perfect home for a manmade virus. 

I’ve had this eye opening realization this week that has made me shift my perspective on everything that’s going on. We are in quarantine, we’re being forced to sit down and go within. Within our homes which reflect us going within ourselves; as our bodies are home to our souls. 

Some of us aren’t working. Kids are being homeschooled. Non essential businesses aren’t operating; hair, nails, shopping, and all worldly material practices. We are being forced to spend more time with the people we’ve been gifted with in this reality; our family and people we live with. I’ve seen so many people walking with there kids, running, and spending time outside. Me and my family road bikes and brought out the water hose the other day. We haven’t done that in years. I felt like my inner child was awaking. 

The message from spirit is to get back to basics. Get back to spending time in nature, with our loved ones, and finding activities to do with what we already have. Get back to herbal remedies and natural living. There’s no going back to how things were in 2019 because we are shifting, the energy of the universe is changing. 

This is the new normal; This is the age of Aquarius. Look at things in this new perspective and vibrate with gratitude which only attracts high vibrations. Those who give into the fear, resist the shift, and continue to try living the old way are the ones being affected by low vibrations. Viruses are low vibrations. 

This is a basic law of adaptation. Survival of the fittest. Evolution.

3.14 Open Journal Series: 3.16.2020

There’s been rumors of a nationwide quarantine as some cities have already initiated lockdown. I don’t think this is the actual complete crumble of the system because we’ve just begun. This is going to be unraveling for years. I think the peak of this virus shit is bout to disappear soon. Then, the next thing will crumble. Eventually I think we will enter a phase where we will need to load up a foods, survival tools, and stay spiritually protected. This is a warning for those who are listening to get prepared for when we will but do not fear. Learn natural remedies, learn to grow your own food, and relearn survival skills such as starting a fire. We are divinely lead by spirit to evolve along with the earth. This is why we are prepared in awareness of it all. Thank you spirit. 

Just look at it from a higher prospective, we are evolving. All we need to do is just surrender and evolve with the earth. Open our minds, challenge ourselves to look past current beliefs, and take CARE of our BODY. Health is wealth in every way. If we choose to stay in a low vibration..we are choosing not to evolve.
