Vol 13, #12

The purpose of the Big Picture Newsletter is to celebrate the spiritual nature of human beings. We are dedicated to dissolving the myth of the randomness of life, and the biological nature of consciousness. We believe that every human being is an aspect of God, a powerful creator and orchestrator of his or her life experience.

The Vibrational Universe Movie

The companion movie to the book, "The Vibrational Universe."

How do universal principles like the Law of Attraction really work?

Underlying science, metaphysics, politics, and human relationships is the vibrational universe concept. Understanding this concept enormously simplifies the complexities of life, and explains the sometimes mysterious workings of human relationships. It also explains phenomena like karma, coincidence, and ESP. The Vibrational Universe movie clarifies the relationship between thought, consciousness, and the "real world."


The Evolution of Consciousness movie


Behind the scenes, the human race is undergoing an evolution in consciousness. The political and economic structures that support the old order are collapsing, because they must evolve with the new consciousness or perish. This is a good thing! The Evolution of Consciousness movie describes how this is happening, and why it a new, more positive paradigm of thought is inevitable!

No one Expected This

(Blog post)


In last month's blog we talked about energy, and said that energy is fundamentally polarized. If the black-hole-white hole phenomenon exists then the duality exists as a fundamental characteristic of the entire galaxy, and perhaps the universe itself. If this is so, then there has always been a conflict between light and dark on the planet. This goes a long way to explaining current events.

 Humanity is now confronting a meme set -- a set of beliefs based on the choices we have made -- that we have created lifetime after lifetime. Did you think your thoughts were unimportant? Not so! Every thought you have ever had, every decision you have made, every intention, and every action has been recorded in your Akash and within human consciousness.  We'll talk about what human consciousness is, and where it is, in another blog post. But suffice it to say that every one of us is important, and our thoughts and activities are noted by what might be called an esoteric, metaphysical "accounting" system.

The planet earth, Gaia, is conscious just as we are conscious. The planet earth is the gameboard in a great test of energy, and it cooperates with humanity. By that I mean the planet, through the law of attraction, will bring to humanity that which humanity is focused on. In the past this has meant disease, natural disasters, plagues, and the like. Gaia reflects back to humanity the consciousness of humanity.

The earth is very resilient. Gaia will still be here, with or without us. Humanity's pollution of the oceans and the air is not causing the weather phenomena we see. Ice core records from the Arctic and the Antarctic show a million years of warming and cooling. By the year 2030 it will be obvious that the planet is going through a cooling stage. The ozone layer will heal itself, the oceans will be restocked with food, all in preparation for humanity's gradual evolution over the next thousands of years into ascension status. Until then, there will be LOTS of change. The Trump phenomenon is just the very beginning. The darkness humanity has created will all have to be confronted, which brings me to what I really want to say this month.

Since the end of WWII the advance of technology and communications has essentially created a worldwide corporate-fascist state. I don't mean fascist in political terms, I mean it in a dark-light sense. The dark global infrastructure is engaged in arms trafficking, drugs trafficking, and trafficking in human beings and children. The light is beginning to expose this dark system, which includes a very dark cult that worships satan, traffics children, and uses them in dark rituals. All of this is going to be exposed in great detail over the next several years. 

The next stage in the light-exposes-dark phenomenon is the exposure of the worldwide pedophile network. The sick people who engage in these rituals are in politics, business, and entertainment. They worship a horned god who is often shown holding children or babies. People who engage in these twisted rituals believe that the blood of children and even babies has life-giving properties. This may very well be true. NGOs sponsor children's foundations, as do politicians, business people, and celebrities. Some of them are engaged in the buying and selling of children.  Everyone reading this has probably already heard this stuff so I won't go into it more. It is most definitely not fake news.

Below is a representation of Baphomet, the horned god of satan worshippers and pedophiles.


Why am I talking about this dark stuff? Why not just stay totally positive? Because when this gets exposed for real many people will feel that it's a sure sign of the Apocalypse. It's not! It's a positive indication that a dark system that has been in existence for thousands of years is finally being cleaned up. We are at the stage now where the duality is sharpening so that the light can fully see the dark for what it is. It won't be pretty. But human consciousness created it and so must confront it and clean it up if we are to advance spiritually.

People don't want to think that human beings engage in this twisted stuff (see "Ex NYPD Officer: '35-40% Of Washington Is Involved In Covering Up Human Trafficking,'" That's why it has continued to exist. Because it's too horrible.  What did Marshal McLuhan say? “Only the small secrets need to be protected. The big ones are kept secret by public incredulity.”

Since we passed the marker in 2012, the light is increasing. The darkness IS going to be exposed, there's no stopping it now. But lightworkers should understand that the road to ascension requires a psychic cleanup of the human meme structure and belief systems. Be ready for what's coming. People are going to become unbalanced when this stuff is exposed, they will come to you. Try to remain as positive as you can. Meditate and pray every day. Send light to every corner of the earth. The more we do this the faster the cleanup will proceed.

The Future

Over the next several years, look for the dark forces to organize around some charismatic leader. This will happen because the dark forces will be forced to come into the open by the increasing light that is emanating from human consciousness, where formerly their activities could be carried out secretly. Like some psychopaths, this leader will appear to be charming and extroverted, but this will be more fake news. The purpose will be to bring the planet back to the old energy.

Pedophilia will (and already is) being presented as a "normal" human activity.  

There are going to be a number of "wildcards," as Isaac Asimov called them in his "Foundation" SF series. Trump is just the first wild card, more are coming. A wildcard is a change agent, a catalyst that stirs up the hidden, moldy old belief systems and the dark networks that have been functioning on this planet for thousands of years. Change will accelerate as human consciousness gradually frees itself from the old paradigm. There will be no history to compare the coming changes to, because what's ahead has never happened before. We are on a new track! Get ready for change that is different from anything that has happened in human history. Hold your light.

Combine this with the coming weather changes – global cooling – and people will feel like the world is going off the rails, especially in more northern climes, which are going to get colder. The weather change will have one positive effect: it will become obvious after a while that the planet is balancing itself, not going off the rails into runaway global warming. Cooler heads will prevail!  By the year 2030 the weather change will be obvious even to the most die-hard global warming activist.

What else might happen?

1) Organizations that are out of integrity will start to implode. This is already happening within the Catholic Church, where pedophile priests are being exposed. Over the next couple of decades other organizations, such as pharmaceutical companies that are in medicine purely for profit, will either mend their ways or go under. Organizations will either reform (or fail) from within. The people who work in these organizations will start to come forward in greater numbers.

2) Politics will become even more fragmented and divisive until the people demand more tolerance and compassion. Dark actors will be exposed. The underbelly of human consciousness will be revealed, forcing everyone to confront the dark and make a decision: Do we want reform, or business-as-usual? The actors in this play will self-identify either with the light or with the dark. Which side a person is on will become evident by their words and deeds. The measurement will be a simple one: Dark = intolerance and hatred. Light = tolerance and compassion.  People we thought were heroes will turn out to be dark actors, and vice-versa. All of this will occur so that human beings can see the big choice we have to make: to go to the dark or go to the light.

Buckminster Fuller expressed this idea succinctly when he wrote, "Dear reader, traditional human power structures and their reign of darkness are about to be rendered obsolete." (Source – "Cosmography: A Posthumous Scenario for the Future of Humanity.") Bucky was a visionary; he saw the transition to the new energy before it occurred.

3) Those who are sleeping will be awakened. Everyone will have to confront their inner demons and transcend them. Those with little earth experience will have an easier time and will mostly be observers, easily swayed to one side or the other (the sheeple?). For old souls the choice will be obvious. But old souls will also have a much harder time as the Akash is cleaned out. Old souls have probably done all the dark stuff it is possible to do over the millennia. For us our awareness is high, but with that also comes lifetimes of being burned at the stake and being "different."  We have to deal with what we have done and with what has been done to us over many, many lifetimes.

As I have said in previous posts, over 5 billion "newbies" are on the planet now, new souls who have come in since 1930 and who only have a couple lifetimes of earth experience. These are the part of the population within one standard deviation on the normal Gaussian distribution – the Bell curve – about 68%. Check out the graph below. The total population of earth is around 7.4 billion. 5 billion / 7.4 billion = 67.6%! Old souls are outliers, lying between 2 and 3 standard deviations from the norm (between 95.75% and 99.73% on the outside parts of the curve).

Last month's post talked about the meme war. Both the NPC meme and the Russian bot meme refer to the 68%. The idea behind these memes is that if you have little experience on earth you don't know how life works, so you can be programmed much easier.

  Looking at the graph above you can see where old souls are relative to the population (in the red). The situation might look hopeless but it’s not. The good news? Everyone is beginning to awaken, from the middle of the graph on out. Part of that awakening will include becoming more aware spiritually, but also confronting the dark. The duality has two sides.

Spirituality in the Past and in the Future

In the past, it was easier to be "spiritual." When you meditated, or did healing sessions, first you had to clear the space of dark energy. Then you tuned into your channel and did your thing. The channel didn't move, the procedures you used were tried and true. You knew the dark energies were powerful and you felt good spreading as much light as you could. Some people became spiritual leaders. In the old energy this was fine, it was inspiring to listen to recognized spiritual authorities. 

It's all different now.

The “source” channel is moving higher due to the infusion of light onto the planet. The light is more powerful now, there is no need to clear dark energy. Yet somehow, the tried and true methods don't work as well as they used to. The entire spiritual scene is changing and it can sometimes feel confusing. You look out at the world and see so many unbalanced people doing crazy things, shooting people in schools and outdoor venues and in nightclubs. You ask yourself, "So this is what the new energy is? I want to go back to the good old days when I was more certain, and knew I could help people in safe and trusted ways."

The old spirituality existed in a milieu where the dark was more powerful, but where you could create a little bubble of light, a safe space. Now everything is moving so fast it's getting uncomfortable. Some have found their channel and can keep up with the changing energy; for them this is the best of times. But what about the rest of us? How do you keep up with such rapid change in a time that is supposed to be evolving to a new and better paradigm but that can feel very uncomfortable?

The Old Paradigm vs. the New Paradigm

What happens when you take an old consciousness and put it into a new energy? Objection, opposition, resistance! This happens because  the old paradigm was slow and linear, but understandable. Before, you made your plans, wrote them down, proceeded logically step-by-step to your goal. Often there was a lot of struggle, because the old paradigm was a zero-sum game: Everybody knew there was only so much to go around, so you better get your piece of the pie. “Nice guys finish last,” was the phrase that epitomized the old paradigm, which featured endless war and a top-down hierarchical structure even within democratic societies.

The new paradigm is different. It's more intuitive, less defined, less understandable logically. People can already feel the difference. Whatever you want to call it, the new energy or whatever, feels different. It’s faster, it’s not so linear; the connections between things sometimes are not obvious because there’s now a multi-dimensional component. The old ways of plodding along step-by-step don’t seem to work as well for most people. There is a LOT of resistance (#Resist).

In the past I never understood the sometimes violent hatred of Trump. I didn’t vote for the guy but he’s our president, like it or not. In a democracy we accept that and move on, working to get the candidate we like in next time. Now I understand that it’s not about Trump at all. (Most people who don’t like Trump will tell you otherwise, but this is mis-identification.) It’s about the character of the new paradigm, the new energy. There’s no escaping it! The very fabric of spacetime is changing its character. There’s a feeling of inevitable, unavoidable change. To some the feeling is one of doom. Well, it is doom, but for the old paradigm.  

It’s like the ethers are saying,

“Deal with it! You wanted ascension, you’re getting ascension!”

“Yeah but I didn’t know the road to ascension and higher consciousness would be so hard!”

“It’s about higher intuition and non-linearity. It’s a faster-moving energy now. You wanted change, you got change.”

“I didn’t think change would be like this!”

“The vibration of ‘source’ is changing in response to the demand of humanity for a better world. Did you think that a world mired in darkness would remain the same with just a few tweaks here and there? The road to ascension requires a massive shift into the light. You’re in it now.”

“If Donald Trump is what we get in the new paradigm I want to go back to the old one.”

“Aint happening sweetheart. Once you go down this road, you’re committed. Mr. Trump is just a placeholder for the new energy; more like him are coming. He is helping you to confront all of the problems in society. He’s the change agent, the bull in the china shop. It’s necessary.”

“Resist! Opposition! ...”

We all know the drill. People are going mad, shooting up nightclubs, community centers, synagogues, and even mass public executions as in Las Vegas. Most of us who aren’t going mad are just objecting to the very rapid pace of change. This is a symptom of an old-energy consciousness entering a new, faster moving paradigm.

Who or what do you think is behind this? Do you really think that the Trumpster is responsible? Nope. He's a convenient scapegoat (because of his big ego) for a process being set in motion by the collective consciousness. Trump is just one of many actors in this unfolding drama, which is being driven by the demand of humanity for a better world.

The dark forces are massively resisting change, those who have held power in the old paradigm for ages. Call (((them))) the deep state, the cabal, whatever. These are the folks who had it made in the old energy. These people will not give up their power and influence, or their dark lifestyles. They will fight to the death to keep the old ways. Some of them are vile and evil. During the next decade or so those responsible will be identified and neutralized. Believe it or not, Trump is the guy leading the charge. He is directly confronting (((them))), he is in their faces, he is not backing down, he is telling (((them))) their days are numbered. It’s not about Democrats vs. Republicans. Look at the politicians who have resigned or who Trump pressured out of office:

There are far more Republicans than Democrats on this list: 38 to 13. If Trump was the Evil One, why would he force out three times as many members of his own party as the opposition? A cynic might say that he’s doing this so he can gain absolute power in his party, but he already has that; he’s had it since the election win in 2016. My take is a new energy one: Mr. Trump is a necessary phenomenon on the way to a better world. The more you resist change, the more you resist Trump, the more unbalanced you will be and the worse you will feel. Feeling crappy doesn’t help get us over the hump into the new paradigm. Objecting and resisting doesn’t help to bring peace on earth.

During the next two years Trump is going to try to expose the worldwide human trafficking and pedophile networks. I had a dream about that. Things are going to stay hairy until 2020 in the political world; but on the other hand, behind the scenes, improvements are and will be occurring as well. Despite all the animosity and name calling, the economy is doing well, people can get jobs, salaries are rising. Peace has returned to the Korean peninsula. The turnout for the mid-term elections was very high (excitement!). During the last midterms in 2014, voter turnout was at a 70-year low (apathy). People are participating! These are signs we are being blessed from Spirit.

Carry on, don’t give up the ship. The world needs old souls to spread their light.

 Postscript: The Beginning of the End for Big Pharma?

In the Guardian last month I found a fascinating article: “Sackler family members face mass litigation and criminal investigations over opioids crisis.”

This is a good read. It shows clearly how people and organizations who lack integrity will be exposed. More of this is coming.

From the article: “Plaintiffs are now determined to make the Sacklers pay, even though their money is scattered in property, charitable foundations, trusts, a multitude of companies and overseas bank accounts. ’I don’t know where it all is yet, but I’ll find it,’ Conroy said.”

The dark army survives via offshore bank accounts, charitable foundations, and trusts. What’s going to happen when this network is exposed? The fall of Big Pharma, and the exposure of the worldwide human trafficking network. We live in exciting times!

See “Ocean circulation in North Atlantic is at its weakest for 1,500 years - and at levels that previously triggered a mini Ice Age, study warns,” the Daily Mail, Nov 27, 2018.

According to the New York Times, “By percent of people eligible to vote, it was the highest turnout of any midterm election since at least 1970 and the first time midterm turnout topped 100 million, said Tom Bonier, chief executive of TargetSmart, a data analytics firm that studies voter data. He based his analysis on the county- and precinct-level data reported so far.” The turnout could be higher once all votes are counted.
