Collective Evolution asked Lana a few questions about her new documentary, The Resonance, a film where experts not only provide proof of ET life but they also describe a new advanced world humanity is evolving into that includes community with ETs. We also asked her opinion on extraterrestrials and the state of human kind.

1. What Is Your Personal Connection To This Documentary?

The Resonance is my second feature length documentary and it features thirteen experts who are very brave for coming forth and sharing their perspectives on UFOs, ETs, and Human Consciousness. I applaud them. Prior to creating it, I produced and directed The Wellness Story documentary featuring twenty-nine health experts including Dr. John Demartini from The Secret movie. In The Wellness Story, viewers are given knowledge and skills to reclaim their health and maximize their potential at many levels of being: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Towards the end of that film and during the spiritual segment, one of the experts, Dr. Kathy Forti, an ex-clinical psychologist out of Santa Monica, California, explains her near death experience whereby she integrated with advanced benevolent beings that gave her downloads of information pertaining to physics. As a result, she was guided to create a healing technology. Also during that spiritual segment, the audience is given other glimpses into a wider reality (in front of them yet invisible to the physical eye) that is alive with intelligent beings that have been with humans for thousands of years, not just in modern times.

Having said all that, for me professionally, The Resonance was the next step as a documentary filmmaker to crack open for viewers this expanded reality and show what is there and who is there, such as the extraterrestrials. Gratefully, I was able to film many of the speakers in Brantford, Ontario at the Alien Cosmic Expo organized by Jo-Anne Eadie who is also in the film sharing Brantford’s UFO history.

On a personal level, I have been aware, for much of my life, of otherworldly beings occupying the same space as humans and who have pure, positive intentions to help the human race along, so I naturally and excitedly jumped at the opportunity to show that outlook through the visual medium of film with The Resonance.

2. Why Do You Feel It Is Important For People To Be Aware Of Extraterrestrials?

In The Resonance documentary UFO Researcher Grant Cameron explains, “Almost everybody who is an experiencer who has been on a UFO is shown the screen and on the screen they show the destruction of the earth, big huge tidal waves, environmental devastation, and the world blowing up. They are telling us, ‘you have the world at the edge of a cliff and you have to stop it. You have to quit cutting the leaves off the trees because eventually there will be no more trees.’ They are giving us a warning about how we are treating the world.”

The benevolent ETs would like to see humans create a world without pain, suffering, violence, and misery. Do you know that it is abnormal to be in pain, to be sick, to be poor, to feel unloved, to live in an environment that is polluted? Health is supposed to be normal. To be healthy, in the full expression of the word, also includes our expanded awareness of otherworldly beings that care about our survival. ETs are trying to connect with us and help us to be better, be healthier. These ETs operate from a place of true unconditional love.

Honourable Paul Hellyer, former Minister of National Defence for Canada, says in The Resonance that “there is a spiritual conflict. Some of the races I’ve been told are very spiritual more so by far than us on earth. They don’t go around killing each other and establishing empires and looking for more power and they are not greedy. They are what we keep saying we would like to be.”

3. Did You Face Some Resistance When Creating This Film?

One day, some of my production team and I were at an public event handing out flyers for the November 21 film premiere of The Resonance being held at the JJR Auditorium at the University of Toronto and put on by Modern Knowledge (thank you Chris Russak!). I won’t say where we were or mention names but I will say this: We met a professional woman, ET aware, who refused to take our flyers and promote the film after she read about a certain expert speaker in my film that she had butted heads with. So, in that sense, I experienced negative drama in the alien industry, and this is the very same drama that is inhibiting Unity Consciousness, the foundational consciousness that is needed for humans to successfully be in community with ETs. Unity Consciousness also extends to plants and animals.

In The Resonance, Crop Circle Filmmaker Patty Greer explains the fascinating crop circle delivery system, in that it is composed of three elements: ETs, Mother Earth, and Conscious Humanity. She goes on to explain how the messages in the crop circles come in various forms such as binary codes and pictograms. One year the pictograms were of fish, birds, and bugs. Shortly after was the BP Oil spill that killed fish, birds, and bugs. Clearly, humans need to learn to embrace and care for all living beings, that’s Unity Consciousness.

If I were to encounter hardcore resistance to my film I would treat it the way I encounter a person that is very skeptical about alternative medicine — overly skeptical from an unhealthy place. To them, I explain: “You need to look at what’s so special about being resistant to something that can help you and you need to figure out why your investment in resistance is part of your journey so that you can heal that issue. Since it’s an emotionally charged issue for you, anything with an emotional charge needs to be diffused. The goal of healing is to learn to self-regulate your emotions to zero point so you can evolve in consciousness.” There’s healthy resistance and then there’s non-sense resistance.

4. Have You Ever Personally Been Contacted By An ET Or Another Dimensional Being?

In The Resonance Judy Martene, and Intuitive Spiritual Counsellor, describes her positive ET abduction, if you can call abduction positive. As a result of this triggering event in her life she evolved in her understanding of reality to conclude that, “We are not alone on this planet, we never have been and we never will be.” I concur.

My doctorial work is in Transpersonal Psychology and Energy Medicine. I have studied the evolution of consciousness and our Higher Human Perceptual System. I chose this path of study and research because I was personally experiencing the expansion of my consciousness at a young age to include interaction with advanced, benevolent beings on a non-physical level. Throughout much of my life I have telepathically communicated with advanced beings, on a clairvoyant level I see them, and on a claircognizant level I receive downloads of knowledge from them. They have also been by my side guiding my healing practice, when let’s say, I am doing an energy healing on a patient. They teach me. As a result of my strong connection to them I have learned to stand confidently in the Light, thus I know there is nothing to truly fear. Having said that, my advice to readers who have been traumatized from being abducted by dysfunctional extraterrestrials is to heal any lingering victim consciousness and put the focus on the Light. Light and Dark cannot share the same space, you need to adamantly choose what side of the fence you are on. It’s a confidence game, that’s how you protect yourself and that’s how you mature into your potential.

An expert in The Resonance, Sandee Mac from Arizona, also an Energy Healer, works with people who have been traumatized by dysfunctional ETs and she disseminates exceptional words of wisdom around that subject. Another expert, Dr. Don Donderi, former psychology professor at McGill University, approaches abductions in the film from a scientist’s perspective.

Also in The Resonance, Jason Quitt, an Energy Healer, profoundly explains: “If we choose to have negative thought-forms, or addictions or obsessions, we are building an energy resonance within us that attracts certain beings towards us. It’s our choice to pull those energies towards us. It’s the same thing for those people who choose to meditate, eat healthy food, and study, you are actually changing your resonance to call on other beings that will want to help you or assist you. It all starts within you and you have full control over this.” Jason nailed it with that message. Ask yourself: What or who are you in resonance with? That’s a powerful personal growth question that can elicit healthy change.

5. What Is The Most Shocking Discovery About ETs You Made Through Your Research?

I have been working in the health field for 20 years now. I have seen all types of patients, young and old. I have seen all types of pain, injury, even the ugliest of diseases. I have heard all types of cries, all types of stories. I have witnessed all kinds of healings and miracles. I think that as a result of observing the worst and best in humans, nothing shocks me anymore, not even evil, scary looking aliens or the war driven humans that want to conquer the planet. Sorry, I wish I could give you something juicy! I guess I am immune to the shock factor. Nuclear Physicist Stanton Friedman says in The Resonance when he describes cases of UFOs that, “after you read the first 200 cases, it’s all the same stuff going on all over the planet.” After a while, UFOs and ETs become like second nature. I will say that I am fond of Susan Collins’ orb photos in my film which she explains can be of alien origin through proper intention.

The more that humans familiarize themselves with ETs and UFOS and the more they open up the conversation about ETs and UFOs, the more they will integrate the alien experience and the less shocking the whole topic will be. Honestly, it really shouldn’t be shocking. It should be a normal part of the human experience. On my “Health Matters” Rogers TV show I have addressed many topics that for some hosts are too heavy or controversial. I will sit with my panel of doctors as we openly discuss the penis, the vagina, and the corruption in our healthcare system. Why not add ETs to the conversation? Why would I ever want to limit myself in terms of the topics I discuss? That wouldn’t be good for my health.

Unfortunately, some media and other forces have sensationalized ETs to be shocking and to be feared. In The Resonance Michael Horn, American Media Representative for the Billy Meier Contacts, explains from his perspective that “back in the 30s the government enlisted the services of Orson Welles, actor and director, and H.G. Wells, the author of War of the Worlds. They were both forced under threat of death to carry through on a radio show scaring people with the fear of little green men landing in New Jersey.” Michael goes on to say, “Animal mutilations are not ET, it’s secret military. The agenda is to frighten people to control them, even a fake ET attack would be used to clamp down on everybody. 10,000 years, we’ve only had 250 scattered years of peace on this planet and it wasn’t because aliens were attacking us.”

6. Why Do You Think Some Countries, Like Mexico, The UK & Brazil, To Name A Few, Have Disclosed The Reality Of UFOs, & Other Countries, Like The United States Have Not?

I don’t know the agendas of those countries. I can say this: Humans have tipped consciousness in the direction of full-disclosure. That means there are more people in the population that seek truth than there are people who could care less or just aren’t aware. How do we know this? We are starting to see the release of information from higher powers and organizations. And, this disclosure momentum is building!

In The Resonance Victor Viggiani, M.Ed., News Director, explains receiving confidential documents from NORAD in regards to three CF-18s in Canada that made contact with UFOs at 35,000 feet. We show these documents. He explains that he is not sure why they gave him that information and that he thinks it was a mistake on their part. So, one way or another, the information is being made public… by accident or not. Then again, we know there are no accidents.

7. Do You Think There Was Good Intention In Keeping The ET Reality A Secret?

I am going to ask Richard Syrett, host of The Conspiracy Show, and also our fabulous emcee at the film premiere to flip that question to our panel of experts in the film, including Hon. Paul Hellyer, during our live Q and A following the screening and that will be live streamed. Hey, just so you know, people are encouraged to post their UFO and ET questions on our film Facebook page for our live web stream on November 21. Here’s the link: https://www.facebook.com/theresonancedocumentary

For me, your question is interesting as it can be answered from different angles. For example, if we are answering it from the place of healing, then humans need to ask themselves: “What have we learned from being suppressed and having ET contact purposefully robbed from us? How has being suppressed and cut off from ETs served us?” From that healing perspective, having the contrast of suppression of ET contact has, one could say, inspired humans to move away from victim consciousness and towards finding the courage and strength within their hearts to push through the obstacles of lies and deception in order to reclaim their sovereignty. Triumph is always sweeter when it’s due to a long, hard won battle.

On the other hand, had there been no calculated suppression of ET contact and information, humans would have lived a very different lifestyle, a type of wondrous life they have the potential to discover. Everything always works out at some point and that’s because Collective Evolution cannot be stopped.

And on a third hand, on another dimension, there are no secrets.

8. Where Do You See The Future Of Humankind Going, Based Off All Your Research & Conversations With Others?

Humans are interesting in that they can create unnecessary pain and drama for themselves and I say that after observing hundreds of people over the many years in my therapy practice. For example, if I suggest to patients a natural, toxic free, safe, evidence-based solution to becoming healthier and point out the debilitating side effects of a medication including possible suicidal tendencies, headaches, and weight gain, and even explain that prescription pills are the 4th leading cause of death in Canada and the USA according to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), many folks will still look at me as though I am an alien. It doesn’t seem to make sense, does it, that humans should choose the path of most resistance when really life could be so simple, pain-free, and prosperous? How do we explain this resistant behaviour?

A famous psychologist by the name of Dr. Abraham Maslow coined a term called The Jonah Complex. It states that humans fear their greatest potential; they fail to achieve a life even close to what they are capable of and settle for mediocrity. For example, they could fear good health just like they could fear becoming a successful entrepreneur just as they could fear community with loving ETs. Author Marianne Williamson writes: “Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.”

You might say to me next, “Well, Dr. Lana, that’s stupid, why do humans fear their greatest potential?” The answer is: “It’s convenient to stay small. Staying small has the feel of a safety blanket, it’s cozy. When you are small you avoid taking personal responsibility. My amazing media team for The Resonance asked several political representatives from The Greater Toronto Area to come to the film premiere, and while their offices politely emailed back saying they had a conflict of interest and regretfully couldn’t attend, a person has to wonder: For a politician to show up at The Resonance premiere would mean that he/she could no longer play small by avoiding the ET topic and would now need to take public responsibility for doing something about off world civilizations engaging humanity. Schools don’t prepare politicians to handle that matter, yet. (As a side note, we still have a few days until the film debut so fingers crossed that an acting politician attends and even addresses the audience after watching.)

Moving along, Dr. Carl Jung, a famous Swiss Psychiatrist, taught that humans are motivated by the archetype of wholeness. Now, this sounds contradictory to Dr. Maslow’s Jonah Complex but you need to be able to hold both views in your mind. Humans are driven to become whole and they fear their greatness. That unresolved inner battle has been humanity’s Achilles’ heel and victory is called Self-Mastery. I spelled Self with a capitol “s” because I am referring to the Higher Self.

In The Resonance you will hear expert speaker Sandra Kyrzakos talk about the need for humans to connect to their Higher Self so as to evolve into the 5th dimension human, a dimension of Unity Consciousness where humans have claimed their galactic status and are participating with ETs. Fear cannot be sustained in this higher realm. The healing work must be done here and now.

During the healing process, it can get worse before it gets better and that’s because the body and mind need to purge the buildup of poisons and toxins. For example, Dr. Sabina DeVita explains in my first documentary, The Wellness Story, that fluoride (from sources such as tap water) acts to calcify the pineal gland, also referred to as the seat of the soul by French Philosopher Rene Descartes and third eye in Hinduism. This gland is responsible for our connection to our intuition and clairvoyance. How can humans connect to their inner being and beyond when a major part of their brain is hijacked by chemicals? Humans need to start detoxifying and educate themselves on ingredients in topical and ingestible products. Globally, we may see more creative, albeit immature, efforts by the forces of suppression as they scramble to maintain their domination lifestyle. My advice for the general population wanting to mature into the fifth dimension, develop their consciousness, and expand their human potential is the following: Eat a plant based diet, exercise, train your brain to think properly, regulate your emotions (diffuse emotionally charged events and return to zero point), meditate to open up your internal energy channels so as to connect with advanced intelligences, and open up a decent book on developing your Higher Human Perceptional System. That’s a good start for healthy ET contact. Oh, and Sandra Kyrzakos would add, “act compassionately.”

Excuse me now, ETs are calling me about a third documentary I need to set in motion. Being of service is ongoing. How will you choose to serve humanity?

Saturday, November 21st, you can join us at the JJR MACLEOD AUDITORIUM, University of Toronto Campus, 1 King’s College Circle, Toronto, ON Canada where the premiere screening will be taking place followed by of a live Q & A with the incredible speakers in the film.

Congressional Hearing Could Be The Beginning Of The End For Hillary Clinton

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A public hearing examining Clinton Foundation malfeasance before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will be convened today, and will include supposedly 'explosive' testimony from three whistleblowers.

  • Reflect On:

    Is it possible that this hearing represents a watershed moment in the takedown of the Deep State?

For those who remain skeptical about the notion that the Trump Administration is working to take down a ‘Deep State’ that has long held power over the American government, the military, and its law enforcement and intelligence agencies, today’s (December 13, 2018) public hearing on investigations into the Clinton Foundation before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee may very well be a watershed moment.

Mind you, there is a second tier of skeptic to consider: those who accept the notion that a ‘Deep State’ or shadow government does exert tremendous power in our world and may very well have plans to create a totalitarian one-world government, but reject the notion that there is any real resistance to this power, especially not from Donald Trump.

Both sets of skeptics will point to the fact that there has been no concrete action, no major arrests of supposed key Deep State players. A case in point: is Hillary Clinton not still walking about freely, touring with her husband, flying out to India for a lavish wedding celebration, creating a buzz of excitement around the prospect that some lucky donor could get the opportunity to spend an evening of drinking and theatre with her?

OK, these events might be pathetic money grabs,  but certainly if some of the allegations against her were true, both groups would argue, would she not be behind bars by now? Suffice it to say, most people who have done any manner of research into the many claims against Hillary Clinton have concluded that while she is most likely a criminal, they just can’t see her getting arrested. But if–and it’s a big ‘if’–she ever does get arrested and convicted of a serious crime, that likely would satisfy the most ardent skeptic and give rise to widespread belief that the Trump Administration is working on, and succeeding in, taking down the Deep State. Let’s examine the possibility that things are headed in that direction.

Two-Tiered Justice System

For those who have been following the stories of impropriety, illegality, and even sexual perversion surrounding Hillary Clinton (at times in connection with husband Bill), from Whitewater to Filegate to Benghazi to Pizzagate to Uranium One to the private email server, and more recently with Clinton Foundation malfeasance in the spotlight surrounded by many suspicious deaths, there is a sense that Hillary Clinton must be too high up, has too much protection, or is too well-connected to ever have to face criminal charges. Certainly if one listens to former FBI investigator James Comey’s testimony into his kid-gloves handling of Clinton’s private email server investigation, one gets the impression that he is one of many government officials that is in Clinton’s back pocket.

Whistleblower William D. Campbell echoes the sentiments that people like Hillary Clinton are receiving preferential treatment in a ‘two-tiered justice system’, as noted in this Sara Carter article:

A former whistleblower, who has spoken with agents from the Little Rock FBI field office last year and worked for years as an undercover informant collecting information on Russia’s nuclear energy industry for the bureau, noted his enormous frustration with the DOJ and FBI. He describes as a two-tiered justice system that failed to actively investigate the information he provided years ago on the Clinton Foundation and Russia’s dangerous meddling with the U.S. nuclear industry and energy industry during the Obama administration.

“(Mueller) received the documents, copies of which I still have, over a period of years and ignored a national security threat to the United States because of his political preference,” said Campbell, who said he is frustrated that the investigation into the Clinton Foundation and the other information he provided was apparently ignored years ago.

However, it must be noted that this was how things were then. Things have changed significantly within the system, though if you relied on Mainstream Media you would probably not have put together how much this ‘two-tiered justice system’ has started to be challenged based on firings and forced resignations within the Department of Justice, the FBI, and elsewhere. This post from Q-Anon probably gives us the best compilation of these actions:

Q

——

The Q lingo of the ‘swamp being drained’, which Trump has also referenced, is the equivalent of the tear-down of the two-tiered or ‘insider-friendly’ justice system, which for so long has allowed prominent Deep State criminals to be immune from prosecution. Just the kind of rhetoric we have been hearing, including Clinton Foundation CFO Andrew Kessel’s semi-metaphorical admission, ‘I know where all the bodies are buried in this place,’ leads us to believe that things are now different.

The Hearing

What may finally soothe the anger of William D. Campbell and other whistleblowers is that their time seems to have finally come to be heard, and perhaps even have their findings acted upon, as today’s hearing seems to be striking a different tone to the ears of those who have in-depth knowledge of the crimes that have been alleged. This is certainly how rep. Mark Meadows, a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, sees it:

Rep. Mark Meadows, chairman of the Freedom Caucus and member of the committee, said this time it will be different. He noted that the investigation is apparently ongoing with the FBI and DOJ and believes the information being delivered for Thursday’s hearing to be ‘explosive’ in nature and may help connect the dots.

Meadow’s told Fox New’s Martha MaCallum Tuesday, “the American people, they want to bring some closure, not just a few sound bites, here or there, so we’re going to be having a hearing this week, not only covering over some of those 6,000 pages that you’re talking about, but hearing directly from three whistleblowers that have actually spent the majority of the last two years investigating this.”

Meadows, who’s also on President Donald Trump’s short-list to replace Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly, noted that some “allegations (whistleblowers) make are quite explosive.”

“We just look at the contributions. Now everybody’s focused on the contributions for the Clinton Foundation and what has happened just in the last year,” he said. “But if you look at it, it had a very strong rise, the minute she was selected as secretary of state. It dipped down when she was no longer there.”

“And then rose again, when she decided to run for president. So there are all kinds of allegations of pay-to-play and that kind of thing,” Meadows added.

If, in fact, this hearing reveals anything serious like the long-suspected ‘pay-to-play’ strategy of the Clinton Foundation–which allegedly sought large donations in return for favors from the Clinton-run State Department–then Hillary Clinton will be in big trouble. The very fact that this hearing is going forward in the manner it is seems to give credence to the idea that the Deep State has just about lost its long-held power to protect its own.

The Takeaway

As Martin Luther King said, ‘The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.’ It seems like those of us who have been researching and learning about the fraud and corruption in politics have been waiting so long for the truth to emerge and justice to be served as to have difficulty believing that it may ever arrive. Fortunately, we don’t have long to wait to see if this coming hearing is a true watershed moment and a harbinger for things to come.

That said, it is important to keep in mind that this is only a small part of a larger awakening that is happening on the planet right now, and if we hope to contribute to this awakening, we will realize that maintaining equanimity throughout the unfolding of these events is what is essential.

Finally, A Clear Explanation Of The “Baby It’s Cold Outside” Controversy

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Recently, the 1944 song 'Baby It's Cold Outside' came under fire from modern feminists claiming it was a song promoting rape culture. Some radio stations banned the song. A check into the lyrics and song's meaning proved that simply wasn't true.

  • Reflect On:

    Why are we so quick to jump to aggressive conclusions without simple research? Why are we so emotionally driven about everything these days? Why are we so quick to protect ourselves from 'offensive' things? Don't we decide to get offended?

When I first heard of the “Baby It’s Cold Outside” controversy it seemed to resemble the type of results from the common social engineering practices taking place right now whereby people are led to think incompletely about events and culture in order to create a divide amongst people. This creates enemies where they don’t truly exist and makes for a very easy to manipulate and control populace. Ultimately, this leads for people to call for greater governance.

And this is exactly what is happening when you observe the millions up in arms about issues they don’t fully understand, calling for the government or corporate bodies to step in and do something about it.

Common examples are microaggressions, trying to say everything is hate speech, and blaming gender, racism, or privilege at any possible time, even when those things have nothing to do with situations.

I feel this is often, not always, a reflection of the barriers we want to put up around ourselves so we don’t have to deal with much of the pain we have within ourselves. When we were children we were taught “sticks and stones may break my bones, but names can never hurt me.” The reason we are told that is simply because while we all do want to live in a world where everyone is nice to one another, people may sometimes say mean things. The piece we miss today is, how we react to what people say isn’t a reflection of what they said, it’s a reflection of how we feel within ourselves.

“I was just minding my own business looking for people to crucify in my witch hunts instead of dealing with my own pain…” JP Sears, Baby It’s Cold Outside Controversy Explained

Remember, when it comes to getting offended, we all decide what offends us and how to get offended by what someone says. TRUE empowerment means you have the control within yourself. We don’t have to allow things to offend us simply because someone says something, and this also doesn’t mean everyone is going to be mean to us all the time, this is an unsubstantiated fear.

How The Controversy Began

The controversy began a few weeks ago when people claimed the lyrics of the song Baby It’s Cold Outside were promoting rape culture. A groundswell emerged on social media, causing the song to be banned on several radio stations in the US and Canada. Singer Melinda DeRocker even opted out of recording it on her recent holiday album.

But did anyone stop to find out what the writer of the song meant when they wrote it in 1944? Yes, actually, some did, thankfully.  But many didn’t and jumped on the hate bandwagon because nowadays many of us seem to have become headline and meme readers and take all we see as fact without ever questioning what we’re being told. We seem to shy away from delving deeper into content and research, as a general statement, and this is a big problem.

The truth is, the song’s composer Frank Loesser wrote the song so he and his wife Lynn Garland could perform it at holiday parties.

The song’s original score designates the duet partners as “wolf” and “mouse,” and genders are unspecified. This is why many decades of covers have had women and men switching roles as we saw with Lady Gaga and Joseph Gordon Levitt’s version where Gaga plays the wolf’s role. Heck, even Miss Piggy of the Muppets played the wolf as she pursued ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev.

The Real Meaning, All About Perspective

When you truly begin to observe the lyrics more clearly, you can actually deduce what it’s about. In fact, some have argued it’s a song about female empowerment.

In 2006, Slay Belle wrote for the feminist blog Persephone:

“At the time period the song was written, ‘good girls,’ especially young, unmarried girls, did not spend the night at a man’s house unsupervised,”

“Later in the song, she asks him for a comb (to fix her hair) and mentions that there’s going to be talk tomorrow – this is a song about sex, wanting it, having it, maybe having a long night of it by the fire, but it’s not a song about rape. It’s a song about the desires even good girls have.”

“The song ends with the woman doing what she wants to do, not what she’s expected to do, and there’s something very encouraging about that message.”

And in 2015, writer Helen Rosner decided to remove the part about the ‘aggressor’ in the song, or the wolf, and determined that the song was about a “sexually aware woman worried about slut-shaming.”

“The first two verses are both: (1) I have to go. (2)I’m having a great time, but (3) I’m scared of my family’s opinions,” Rosner wrote on Twitter. “She clearly wants to stay, is scared of the social ramifications of that choice, and in the end says ‘fuck society’s repressiveness’ & stays.”

“If you think Baby It’s Cold Outside is creepy, you are robbing the woman in that song of her agency,”
“You are the problem. I’m not kidding.” – Helen Rosner

The Takeaway

In this article, we covered 2 different perspectives of what this song is about. In 2018 it’s about rape, 2015 it’s about a sexually aware woman who is trying to avoid slut shaming, which was the same sentiment in 2006 as the song “was about sex, wanting it, having it, and maybe having a long night of it by the fire, a song about the desires even good girls have.”

The differences come down to important nuances that often don’t exist in many overly emotional activists these days: critical thinking. The 2006 and 2015 examples are intelligently thought out, researched, unemotional and balanced. The example from here in 2018 resembles movements that are about narratives, rhetoric, and creating enemies and divide. It’s angry, emotional and does not have a basis in truth when you take the time to analyze and look at original meanings.

I feel it’s very important we remember not to push so hard about taking sides and trying to identify with certain movements. The more we do this, the more we filter everything through that narrative. Thus we become unconscious.

I wanted to end with a laugh. I will say, I like JP Sears for his comedy. Sure sometimes I am not sure if it comes across to most people as making fun of spirituality and personal work, or if it just calls out the ridiculousness of some of it when we do it inauthentically, but he still has some great jokes. Perhaps though, a shift in his style is needed or even emerging, so his message, whatever it may be, can be a lot clearer to viewers.

That said, I feel in this video’s tone, it hits pretty well on what things are like today with many activists.

If Cannabis Can Kill “Incurable” Brain Cancer, Why Is It Criminalized?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Cannabis contains a compound that may kill brain cancers that chemotherapy and radiation can't touch. This is outlined by the research below.

  • Reflect On:

    Why has it been such a struggle for patients interested in medical marijuana to actually find it? Why, with all its medicinal potential, is this the case?

This article was written by Sayer Ji, Founder of Greenmedinfo.com. His work is reproduced and distributed here with permission. 

In recent years, we’ve focused heavily on educating our readers about the still relatively unknown role that cancer stem cells play in cancer, both in terms of conventional cancer treatment failure and the exceptionally promising role that natural interventions play in targeting these highly malignant cells.

It is encouraging to witness a growing awareness that cancer has been completely misunderstood, and that in order to make progress against the global epidemic we will have to go back to the wisdom of the ancients by using foods and spices instead of toxic chemicals and radiation to fight a disease that should be classified more as a survival mechanism unmasked than an inexorably lethal, genetically-driven condition. Even the National Cancer Institute now admits that it had been wrong for decades about “early stage” breast (DCIS) and prostate (HGPIN) “cancers,” and that they should be reclassified as indolent or benign lesions of epithelial origin, i.e. not “cancer” at all! Essentially, therefore, millions were overdiagnosed and overtreated for cancers they never had. Even now, despite this admission, the vast majority of conventional doctors have yet to account for, acknowledge, or integrate this radically different definition of cancer and its implications for treatment into their “standard of care.”

Only last week, we featured a new review on natural therapies that target cancer stem cells, many of which included common foods and spices. You can view it here. But one substance conspicuously absent from the list was cannabis, which is the herb we now turn to to give it a fair representation in the context of this topic.

A recent article published in the Journal Neuroimmune Pharmacology titled, “The Antitumor Activity of Plant-Derived Non-Psychoactive Cannabinoids,” reviewed the therapeutic potential of a non-psychoactive class of phytochemicals found in cannabis known as cannabinoids. Unlike THC, cannabinoids do not activate the cannabinoid 1 and cannabinoid 2 receptors in the central nervous system in any significant way, making their activity less controversial as they do not produce changes in perception and sensation associated with “recreational” and/or “psychedelic” drugs. There are actually over 60 cannabinoids in cannabis, but the second most abundant one, cannabidiol (CBD), has been found to inhibit and/or kill a wide range of cancers in the animal model, including gliobastoma (a difficult-to-treat type of brain cancer), breast, lung, prostate, and colon cancer. There have been a wide range of mechanisms identified behind these observed anti-tumor activities, including anti-angiogenic (preventing new blood vessel formation), anti-metastatic, anti-cell viability, but the one we wish to focus on in this report is its ability to to inhibit the stem-like potential of cancer cells.

Stem cells are unique within the body as they are capable of continual self-renewal, theoretically making them immortal relative to regular body cells (somatic cells), which die after a fixed number or replication cycles. In their normal state of function they are essential for healing and bodily regeneration, as they are capable of differentiating into the wide range of cells that make up the body and need to be regularly replaced when damaged.

This so-called pluripotent property of stem cells is also observed in tumor formation and maintenance, as cancer stem cells are capable of producing the entire range of different cells that make up a tumor colony. Unlike regular tumor cells, cancer stem cells are uniquely tumorigenic because they are capable of breaking off from an existing lesion or tumor and forming a new tumor colony of cells. In this sense, they are “mother cells” at the heart of cancer malignancy, whose ability to colonize other tissues by producing all the “daughter cells” necessary to form a new tumor make their existence highly concerning from the perspective of cancer prevention and treatment. Radiation and chemotherapy, while capable of reducing the size of a tumor, actually enrich the post-treatment residual lesion or tumor with higher levels of cancer stem cells, and in some cases transform non-cancer stem cells into cancer stem cells, ultimately making the post-treatment state of the treated tissue far worse than its pre-treatment condition. This is why identifying and using natural, safe, effective and affordable ways to target cancer stem cells versus the non-tumorigenic tumor cells in a lesion or tumor is the only rational way to treat cancer, and should be the primary focus of present day cancer treatment approaches.

The new review discussed the way that cannabidiol targets and/or inhibits the cancer stem cell subpopulation in cancers such as the highly treatment-resistant form of brain cancer known as glioblastoma, which is widely considered by conventional medicine as “incurable.” A 2013 study,1mentioned in the review, found that patient-derived glioblastoma cells when exposed to cannabidiol saw a significant down-regulation of the genetic tumor marker Id-1, which has been closely correlated with brain cancer cell invasiveness. They also found that cannabidiol was capable of inhibiting neurosphere formation (a sign of cancer stem cell tumor formation), as well as was capable of inhibiting glioblastoma tumor invasiveness in an animal model.

The results of this preclinical study were so compelling that the researchers concluded cannibidiol might make an ideal adjunct treatment:

With its lack of systemic toxicity and psychoactivity, cannabidiol is an ideal candidate agent in this regard and may prove useful in combination with front-line agents for the treatment of patients with aggressive and high-grade glioblastoma tumors.

Integrative approaches often focus on using natural interventions as “adjuncts” to conventional, inherently toxic approaches like chemotherapy and radiation, we believe that another possibility exists, namely, that cannabidiol in combination with a wide range of other natural substances studied for targeting glioblastoma is more effective (and certainly far safer) than a combination approach. To view other anti-glioblastoma substances, view our database on the subject.

Another highly relevant study published in 2007 titled, “Cannabinoids induce glioma stem-like cell differentiation and inhibit gliomagenesis,”2 found that cannabinoids target the stem-like properties of glioma cells, encouraging their differentiation into functioning, non-tumorigenic cells, and inhibiting the dysregulated increased production of glioma cells.

A more recent 2015 study,3 found that glioblastoma cells treated with cannabidiol inhibited their self-renewal by down-regulating “critical stem cell maintenance and growth regulators.”

Another study, published last month, found that cannabidiol inhibits glioma stem-like proliferation by inducing autophagy, a natural form of programmed cell death.4

Consider, finally, that the cancer stem cell targeting and killing properties of cannabidiol are only one of a wide range of potential mechanisms through which cannabis as a whole plant, comprised of hundreds of different phytochemicals and phytonutrients, can treat cancer. We have indexed hundreds of studies on cannabis’ therapeutic properties, a good subset concerning its ability to prevent, kill, or regress a wide range of different cancer types. You can view them all on our cannabis research database.

Research on cannabis and brain cancer has only just begun, but considering the abject failure if not also sheer violence of conventional approaches, waiting for sufficient quantities of Pharma or government capital to flow in the direction of a non-patentable substance already saddled with archaic laws in some cases criminalizing its possession is a no win proposition. Anecdotes of healing with cannabis are not uncommon. One such report can be viewed on our colleague Dr. Jeffrey Dach’s website, titled, “Cannabis Oil Brain Tumor Remission,” demonstrating just how powerful cannabis and its cannabinoids may be for accomplishing what conventional approaches can not. Last year, we reported on a similar case of temporary remission in childhood leukemia using cannabis extract. Also, consider reports like this one, where a woman clearly being victimized by conventional medicine was able to replace 40 different medications through using raw cannabis juice.

The short of it is that the future of medicine, if it is to continue to advertise itself to be concerned with alleviating human suffering and being guided by “evidence,” must incorporate this safe, time-tested, affordable and effective healing agent into its standard of care. Failing to do so will not de-validate cannabis, rather, but the medical system itself. One might ask, if cannabis can treat “incurable” brain cancers, and is safer and more effective than chemotherapy and radiation, shouldn’t withholding it or information about its healing properties be considered criminal? Instead we still live in a time and age where simply possessing it or using it is in some jurisdictions classified as a criminal offense of dire if not irreparable consequence to our civil liberties. Perhaps we are at a critical turning point now and the aforementioned research will lead us all forward to a more enlightened medical ethos that respects the right of a patient to choose his or her treatment as long as it does no harm to others.
