Post No. 784 – For Sunday evening’s meditation-clearing

For everyone’s convenience, I’ve shifted the reminders / explanations about Sunday’s meditation-clearing to this post. I have a simplified blogiography of posts related to this work here, a list of themes I have identified here, and my changing the personality of oppressors post, which I am contemplating expanding to include some key people to work on, is here. (Also, see here for some investigation into evidence of the effectiveness of this type of work, which shows variability [and mentions causes] and cycles in the energetic/consciousness response … and also here is interesting.) A range of information on emotions is here, and suggestions on how to work with emotions is here.
The purpose of posting these news links is not only to inform: it is also to stimulate a connection to nonBPLF units that need to be cleared and BPLF units that need to be strengthened. That only works if you don’t let yourself be overwhelmed by this, so take it in small chunks if you need to, but remember to actively clear and heal! … including yourself.
Also, in the same way that activists used to argue that “the personal is political”, the energies we use and manifest in our daily lives contribute to the larger soup of energies that influence world events. If you want to, for example, improve the communication of nations, improve yours. To help stop abuses of power, be always ethical in your conduct. Want peace? Then work in an informed, understanding, intelligent and nuanced way for peace in yourself and your life.
Finally, remember that many others are doing this type of work – for instance, the Lucis Trust's Triangles network (which has been running for many decades),   the Correllian Tradition's 'Spiritual War for Peace' (begun in 2014, and the website was recently updated to include many more activities), the Hope, Peace, Love and Prosperity Spell (also from the Correllian Tradition, in around 2007 or 2008),   the Healing Minute started by the late, great Harry Edwards (held at 10Am and 10PM local time each day, and one can pay to be officially registered. This also has been running for decades);   and   also see here and here, and even commercial organisations are getting involved (for instance, see here). No doubt there are many others. If you don't like what I am suggesting here, but want to be of service, there are many opportunities for you.
Now, the themes – short, medium and long term - that come to mind for my work this week, after I review all this news, are (and no apologies if this repeats the themes of any previous weeks – in fact, given the size of this task, that is to be expected):
(a)   based on my interpretation of information here and here with Saturn in Sagittarius contributing to finding an authentic balance (until 20th December, 2017), Uranus in Aries contributing to fresh and possibly radical starts (until some date in the Year 2018), and Pluto in Capricorn contributing to a transformation of power and business (and careers) (until some date in the Year 2024), conditions are ripe for a change for the better in world politics;
(b)   there is an enormous need to clear nonBPLF energy – the thought forms, unattached energy and scars of the collective unconscious created by millennia of violence. This need includes rescuing those who have been trapped by that history, and healing the warped views, seemingly “inherent” biases, and other damage done by the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual violence committed on scales large and small in that timeframe;
(c)   viewing the overall emotional state of the world from an elemental point of view, we have an excess of nonBPLF Fire, and thus a need for BPLF Air and Æther;
(d)   a backlash is occurring with a series of terrorist attacks: more information is needed about who is behind these, but it is important to ensure any reactions are proportionate, appropriate and do not impinge on citizen’s freedoms and liberties – which would give the terrorists a win, to continue all that is BPLF. I will be working – lighting candles, clearing nonBPLF units and creating and sending BPLF units - to aid those who are responding to these events now;
(e)   there are threats to democracy, which appear to be based in fear of diversity – going so far as to label that as “chaos”, unwillingness to let others live their own lives, projection onto others and addictions to power;
(f)   Canada’s exemplary behaviour is being hailed;
(g)   the problem of profiteering is raising its ugly head;
News and other matters from this week include the following (opportunities/good news are shown in green; comments are shown in purple; WARNING: some of these links may contain triggers around issues such as violence, sexual assault, discrimination, etc).
  • permanent issue: may all actual and potential BPLF [1] Leaders be kept BPLF safe, including keeping them undetectable to the nonBPLF and keeping all their Significant Others inviolable against being used for indirect  psychic attack, all as is for the Highest Spiritual Good;
  • with regard to democracy, freedom and governance:   Jeffrey Feltman, the UN Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, has informed the UN Security Council (UN SC) that Burundi finds itself in a deep political crisis and rapid escalation of violence that has serious implications for stability and ethnic harmony in Burundi, as well as peace and security in the region. The High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, has told the UN SC that increasing numbers of extrajudicial killings in recent months, including multiple alleged political assassinations have been documented - at least 240 people have been killed since protests began in April, and there have been hundreds of cases of arbitrary arrest and detention in the past month alone. The UN Secretary-General has condemned the killing of at least seven people, including a United Nations staff member, in Burundi by people in police uniform. HRW has warned of the increase of fear following a recent speech by the Burundian President, and called for a special session of the Human Rights Council – see also here;. Later in the week, Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson, African Union Chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, and European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini pledged to work closely together and to mobilise all our means and instruments to prevent a further deterioration of the situation;   criticism of Western and Gulf nations overlooking abuses, predominantly of the Rohingya, in Burma;   Spain's Constitutional Court has suspended a motion passed in the Catalan parliament backing independence;   Burmese President Thein Sein has reportedly congratulated Aung San Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy (NLD) on its landslide - over 90% of the vote - success in polls, but Ms Suu Kyi is treading carefully despite her apparent landslide victory: the NLD won elections decisively in 1990 only for the result to be nullified and Ms Suu Kyi placed under long-term house arrest;   the problem of “astroturfing;   a warning that “passport free” travel comes at the cost of major and significant loss of privacy;   in an appalling abuse of power, female MPs who declared they were the victims of sexual assault were ordered out of Parliament;   Australia’s Labor and conservative “Liberal” parties have both traded away our sovereignty for trade;   an interesting review of “multipolar” international politics;   Portugal may be heading for early elections;   an election that was neither free nor fair in Azerbaijan has resulted in the ruling party staying in power;   a call for democracy in the Maldives;   an assessment of Canada’s politics move against the current tide of hate, fear and discrimination;   instability may increase in Algeria, following an unconfirmed report that the Algerian President, withdrawn from public life since a stroke in April 2013, has been “evacuated” for medical reasons;
  • with regard to Da’esh and violent extremism generally:   Senegal has arrested several people suspected of financing Boko Haram;   Da’esh has claimed responsibility for bombings in Lebanon that have killed dozens and injured hundreds – see also here, and this assessment, which concludes that the attacks will not create a Sunni-Shia conflict there;   a series of attacks – and a current hostage crisis - have killed dozens of people in Paris;   Kurdish fighters have retaken Sinjar, in Iraq;   Italy has boosted security at Jewish sites in Milan after an Israeli Jew was stabbed;   a critique of US policy towards Da’esh;
  • with regard to refugees:   the UN refugee agency, UNHCR, says the signing of the Algiers Accord has brought significant steps towards peace in parts of Mali, but has not stemmed the flow into Niger where the number of Malian refugees has reached its highest level since 2012;   the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) has welcomed Canada’s announcement that it will take in an additional 25,000 Syrian refugees;   the Secretary-General has called on the international community to meet the largest crisis of forced displacement without lessening its commitment to vitally needed official development assistance;   a (valid) warning that Australia’s abuse (my word) of refugees will make us a pariah nation;
  • with regard to human rights and discrimination (including associated violence / crime):   a call for Venezuela, recently re-elected as a member of the UN Security Council (UN SC), despite its poor human rights record and failure to cooperate with international human rights monitors that should have disqualified it for such a post, to not be allowed to use the UN SC for “shameless self-promotion”;   Qatar’s labour law reforms are inadequate;   racism at a US University has led to at least one arrest;   the reality of discrimination against same sex couples, although this story shows a change of heart;   the backlash against feminism shows how much it matters;   the problem of “invisible disability”;   Tunisia has made a SMALL step forward on women’s rights;   a Utah judge has reversed a bigoted and illegal decision by another judge to remove a baby from a lesbian couple;
  • with regard to crime, judicial matters and policing:   this court case is a reminder that women are also capable of committing rape (and other crimes and abuses);   the UN Chef de Cabinet, Susana Malcorra, delivered remarks on behalf of the Secretary-General at the opening the 10th meeting of the UN Police Components, which started UN Police Week;   the anti-slavery Bakhita Initiative, built by a police officer and a pensioner, and the challenges of identifying modern slavery (including hypocrisy over cheap labour);   the UN Under Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations, Hervé Ladsous, has said, while addressing the UN Security Council, that perhaps the most important reservoir of protection expertise was found among the world’s police officers, who are the women and men who receive training to engage with communities, analyse potential threats, and, if necessary, take action. He said that ten peacekeeping operations have a protection of civilians mandate and that the police in particular have an important role to play in protecting civilians, especially as their numbers and responsibilities expanded to over 13,000, a tripling over the last decade, paralleled by increasingly multidimensional mandates;   a warning that a counterterrorism bill under consideration in Brazil contains overbroad and vague language that endangers basic human rights such as freedom of association and expression;   3 people have been arrested over the murder of a Japanese man in Bangladesh;   a review of scams - including the often sophisticated preliminary checks taken by many victims, and problem of blaming the victim by police;   murders and extortion, often drug related, have decreased in Mexico’s Vera Cruz, but the risk of kidnapping remains high;
  • with regard to media and freedom of expression:   Ecuador has used excessive force in its crackdown on protestors;

  • with regard to education:   fears of further violence amongst Kenya’s university students;
  • with regard to the conflict in Afghanistan (noting that Afghanistan was once a peaceful and modern society, even allowing women in miniskirts, before the Russian invasion – see here):   the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) has condemned the murder of seven civilians, including two women and three children, in the southern province of Zabul;   thousands have protested against the recent abduction and killing of seven civilians from the Hazara ethnic minority;
  • with regard to China:   as the worst crackdown on human rights in two decades unfolds, the Chinese government is also failing to respond candidly to a key United Nations torture review, Human Rights Watch has said;   a crisis over baby formula in China has led to problems of profiteering in other nations;
  • with regard to the conflict in Iraq (noting that Iraq was once a peaceful and prosperous society, before the USA / CIA backed revolution – see here):   abuse of protestors in Iraq;   the first round of oral cholera vaccination campaign for Syrian refugees and displaced people inside Iraq has been completed;   the UN Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Iraq, Jan Kubiš, has emphasized the need for openness, partnership, inclusiveness and broad consultations in decision-making to work in unity and to promote effective governance. Deep political crisis at this point of time is the last thing the country needs, he warned;   Kurdish fighters have retaken Sinjar, in Iraq;

  • with regard to the conflict in Syria:   on 8th and 9th November, UN Agencies, Ministers from countries affected by the Syria crisis and development and humanitarian practitioners gathered in Jordan for the Resilience Development Forum, convened by the United Nations Development Programme and hosted by the Government of Jordan, with the aim of building momentum towards a better-integrated response to the Syria crisis;   the UN Special Envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, has stressed the need to show results for the Syrian people, including a reduction of the violence on the ground;   a Russian document circulating at the United Nations has proposed a constitutional reform process in Syria, lasting 18 months, to be followed by presidential elections, and states that certain Syrian opposition groups should take part in key talks on the crisis but does not say whether Syrian President Bashar al-Assad should remain in power during that time, as the Syrian Army is reported to have lifted a siege by Da’esh in the north;   the OPCW-UN Joint Investigative Mechanism dealing with chemical weapons in Syria has proceeded with the recruitment of its core and administrative staff, following its initial planning meeting;   an article on Russian air strikes on hospitals, which Russia is claiming is because relief workers are reluctant to share coordinates;

  • with regard to the war in Yemen:   the World Food Programme (WFP) has said that Yemen’s fragile food security is continuing to deteriorate, but has assisted more than 2.5 million people across the country in October, compared to a monthly average of 1 million people since the conflict started, and is scaling up to reach 5 million people a month by February 2016;   Houthis in Taiz have been accused of committing extortion;   the United Kingdom may stop arms sales to Saudi Arabia if the latter is found to have breached international law during its campaign in Yemen;
  • with regard to natural and other catastrophes:   Tropical Cyclone Megh has hit Yemen with initial reports suggesting 26 people have been killed and 60 injured, and significant damage, but aid is being sent;   UN agencies and humanitarian partners have warned that El Niño has wreaked havoc on Ethiopia’s summer rains, and has led to further food insecurity, malnutrition and water shortages in affected areas of the country.

Also from the Daily Briefings of the United Nations (UN) (and other sources):

  • the UN Mission in the Central African Republic, MINUSCA, has been working to prevent clashes in Bangui, but has reported a deterioration in Bambari and the Secretary-General has condemned the killing of a peacekeeper in Batangafo, located 400 kilometres north of Bangui. MINUSCA has dispatched a team to gather facts, following new allegations of misconduct, sexual exploitation and abuse, and fraternization with the local population by peacekeepers (if true, how is this still happening?);
  • the World Food Programme (WFP) has announced that it is expanding its schools meals programme in Guinea;
  • the World Health Organization (WHO) has said that an affordable and effective vaccine is helping to bring the meningitis A epidemic in Africa close to elimination;
  • the UN Secretary-General has said, at an event commemorating Chaim Herzog’s words against the now-rescinded General Assembly resolution 3379, which had equated Zionism with racism, that the reputation of the UN was badly damaged by the adoption of resolution 3379, and he appealed to the community of nations to always act to uphold the principles of the UN Charter “to practice tolerance and live together in peace with one another as good neighbours” and, as we come together to commemorate the revocation of resolution 3379, that our focus must be on the many manifestations of hatred and intolerance that blight the global landscape - including resurgent anti-Semitism, wide-ranging anti-Muslim bigotry and attacks, discrimination against migrants and refugee;
  • the Humanitarian Coordinator in Mali, Mbaranga Gasarabwe, has condemned the recent increase of violence against humanitarian organizations in that country;

From other sites (note that articles from these sites may have already been provided):
  • Human Rights Watch also has:   a call for Indonesia to end restrictions on access to Papua;   a review of the problems in Morocco;   an activist has been arrested in Kazakhstan – the third this month;
  • the US-based and -centric “War on the Rocks” blog (which I have found may also have other articles that I have concerns with - and thus do not provide links to, unless I want you to think … :) ) also has:   a cautionary review of the role that hatred – thought to be absent for now - has played in military training, and questions whether it is really absent in the long term (I can add to that the insidious nature of ubiquitous social attitudes in many such organisations – which results in acceptance / condoning / facilitating violence against women [and some men], LGBTIQ people, ethnic groups, and small animals seen in some very disturbing incidents in recent years [see, for instance, here, here, here, here] – and thus question whether it is truly absent, or just not noticed);
  • the Early Warning Project blog has:   a warning that Burma remains the country most likely of having a mass killing - although this, possibly more up to date assessment, places Burundi in a situation of major risk of such an event;
  • the Political Violence at a Glance blog has:   bias in the transfer of research and expertise between higher education and the policy world in the area of global affairs;
  • the Institute for War and Peace Reporting also has:   a group of Armenians still waiting to be resettled 27 years after a massive earthquake devastated the Gyumri region have been told they will finally be housed by the end of next year;
  • the Middle East Eyealso has:
     - the European Union has approved labelling of products from Israeli settlements, which has led to a protest response by Israel;   a caution that US President Obama should be wary of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Islamophobic and pro-settlement US supporters;   Israel may jail children as young as 12;   “20 years after Rabin's assassination, the liberal left in Israel is losing numbers as well as hope. Leaving Israel seems like a promising idea”;   Israel is considering permanently annexing art of the Golan after finding oil;
     - factional fighting in Iran, as President Rouhani calls for a freer media;
     - an assessment of resistance to killing, cultures of violence and Da’esh;
     - more bigotry in Egypt, which is being fought against by this woman;   an article raising the possibility that Sisi’s rule in Egypt may soon be ended, as a result of multiple crises (I won’t hold my breath …), and another calls for Sisi to go before his reign creates more devastation for Egyptians;
  • Also on West Asia / the Middle East:
     - Da’esh has claimed responsibility for bombings in Lebanon that have killed dozens and injured hundreds – see also here;
     - the UN Secretary-General has learned with concern of the detention of Egyptian human rights defender Hossam Bahgat, a member of UNDP's Global Civil Society Advisory Council and the founder of the group Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights, on accusations of publishing false information that harms national interest. This is the latest in a series of detentions of human rights defenders and others that are profoundly worrying to the Secretary-General;
     - a call for a civilian journalist, facing military prosecution, to be freed – see also here, and this report of a smear campaign against another jailed journalist;
     - rival princes are jockeying for position in Saudi Arabia, where King Salman’s health is failing;
     - “undercover” Israeli (if they’re out of uniform, aren’t they spies?) raided a Palestinian hospital (lot of that going round at the moment, it seems, in that area of the world) and killed someone who wasn’t their target;
     - Iranian hardliners are fighting back;
  • The Hindu also has:   over half of the Members of a newly elected State legislature have criminal charges pending against them;   criticism of Prime Minister Modi’s speeches in the United Kingdom;   an editorial welcoming actions in the region’s northeast which make peace more likely;   an opinion piece looking at recent calls for a beef ban (and worse) from the point of view of reason;   consideration is being given to castration as a deterrent to India’s epidemic of rape;   claims that Pakistan will not discuss the issue of its nuclear weapons in talks with American officials during a US general’s forthcoming visit and will, in fact, use India’s “cold-start doctrine” as justification for its nuclear status;
  • Also on the Indian sub-continent and region:
     - the UN Secretary-General has reiterated his concern over the obstruction of essential supplies on the Nepal-India border;
     - HRW has warned that India has been tarnished by its recent increase in intolerance;
     - a trans woman has been allowed to start training to become a police officer;
     - the Maldives Parliament has sacked the chief prosecutor as the power struggle there deepens;
  • Spiegel International also has:   German intelligence activities were more extensive than suspected;   an interview with former Russian opposition chief and chess world champion Garry Kasparov, who calls Vladimir Putin a dictator and accuses the West of capitulating in the face of the Kremlin's aggressive foreign policy, and claims that Putin needs wars to legitimize his position;
and from a range of other sites:
  • a pioneering antiviolence program in Chicago is built on a bond between gang members and veterans who have been to war;
  • Chad Bernstein says involving students in an after-school music program hones their problem-solving skills and creative abilities – and keeps them in school;

[2] Please see here, here and my post "The Death of Wikipedia" for the reasons I now recommend caution when using Wikipedia. I'm also exploring use of h2g2, although that doesn't appear to be as extensive (h2g2 is intended - rather engagingly - to be the Earth edition of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy").
[3] I apologise for the formatting: it seems Blogger is no longer as WYSIWYG as it used to be, and there are a lot of unwanted changes to layout made upon publishing, so I often have to edit it immediately after publishing to get the format as close to what I want as possible.

My "blogiography" (list of all posts and guide as to how to best use this site) is here, and my glossary/index is here.

I started this blog to cover karmic regression-rescue (see here and here), and it grew ... See here for my group mind project, here and here for my "Pagans for Peace" project (and join me for a few minutes at some time between 8 and 11 PM on Sunday, wherever you are, to meditate-clear for peace), and here for my bindrune kit-bag. I also strongly recommend learning how to flame, ground and shield, do alternate nostril breathing, work with colour, and see also here and be flexible.

The real dividing line is not between Christianity and Islam, Sunni and Shia, East and West. It is between people who believe in coexistence, and those who don’t.

  • If your “gut” (your instinct/intuition) is telling you something is wrong, but logic and the available evidence is saying otherwise, the proper conclusion to draw is that you need better, more personally credible evidence. Your “gut” could be wrong, right, or missing the nuances / “shades of grey” . So could the available evidence.
  • All of the above - and this blog - could be wrong, or subject to context, perspective, or state of spiritual evolution ...
