The Inevitable Is Almost Here: What’s Going To Happen When The Whole World Finds Out?

Published

on

Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) have been a topic of interest for decades, and with the recent release of thousands of previously classified government documents, we now know without question that government, military, and other defence agencies have had a high level of interest in this topic for a very long time.

These files indicate that objects are commonly tracked on both air and ground radar, as well as visually confirmed by the pilots who are sent out to intercept them.

Everything is in a process of investigation both in the United States and in Spain, as well as the rest of the world. The nations of the world are currently working together in the investigation of the UFO phenomenon. There is an international exchange of data. – General Carlos Castro Cavero (1979). From UFOs and the National Security State, Volume 2, written by Richard Dolan.

For instance, here is an excellent example of a defence intelligence agency report detailing what commonly happens when a UFO is tracked on radar, and pilots attempt to intercept it (one of thousands). Apart from traveling at tremendous speeds and performing impossible maneuvers that no known aircraft can perform, when military jets enter the object’s vicinity, they usually experience critical instrumentation failure.

When President Truman made the statement that they discuss this issue at every conference that the government has held with the military, many people took notice. Peter Andrew Sturrock, a British scientist and an Emeritus Professor of Applied Physics at Stanford University, reminded us decades ago that we need to move forward with UFO research; this was in the 1960s. He stated that:

If it does indeed turn out that there is relevant physical evidence, if this evidence is carefully collected and analyzed, and if this analysis leads to the identification of several facts concerning the UFO phenomenon, then will be the time for scientists to step back and ask, What are these facts trying to tell us?

After that, we had scientists like Dr. Jacques Vallee, notable for co-developing the first computerized mapping of Mars for NASA, and for his work at SRI International on the network information centre for ARPANET, a precursor to the modern Internet, publishing work in peer-reviewed scientific journals. For example, a study published in Scientific Exploration titled “Estimates of Optical Power Output in Six Cases Of Unexplained Aeriel Objects With Defined Luminosity Characteristics.” Apart from performing impossible maneuvers, the files also indicate some sort of electromagnetic effect when craft enter the vicinity of some of these UFOs. Critical weapons and electronic systems completely shut down. You can read about a classic example of that from two Canadian military pilots here.

To read about more examples, you can read this article we published on the topic a few years back. These are truly astonishing cases.

Above is just a tidbit of information regarding the UFO phenomenon. This field is littered with information ranging from declassified documents, from video footage, to statements from some of the ‘highest-ranking’ military and political people in the world.

So, ask yourself, why has it taken so long to accustom people to the fact that these objects are real, do exist, and have possibly existed well before the existence of modern day humans? Former head of the CIA, Roscoe Hillenoketter told the NY times in 1960 that:

Behind the scenes, high ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.

Here is an excellent video summarizing the UFO problem up in 10 minutes, give by UFO researcher Richard Dolan, given at the citizens hearing on disclosure organized by Steven Basset. It was a conference that gathered academicians, high ranking military and political personnel from around the world. I’ve used it multiple times in my articles so forgive me if you’ve already seen it.

Do UFOs = Extraterrestrial Craft?

Intelligent beings from other star systems have been and are visiting our planet Earth. They are variously referred to as Visitors, Others, Star People, ETs, etc. . . . They are visiting Earth NOW; this is not a matter of conjecture or wistful thinking. – Theodore C. Loder III, Phd, Professor Emeritus of Earth Sciences, University of New Hampshire (source)

UFO doesn’t necessarily mean extraterrestrial, but, as with all of the evidence that presented itself prior to the disclosure of their existence, we have similar evidence and a great deal of information to believe that the extraterrestrial hypothesis is a possible explanation for some of these UFOs. A few years ago, you were branded a ‘conspiracy theorist’ for believing that UFOs are real. Today, more than half of the American population believes in their existence, and this was before dozens of governments decided to disclose their existence. A simple google search of the latest polls will show you this statistic.

This thing has gotten so highly-classified… it is just impossible to get anything on it. I have no idea who controls the flow of need-to-know because, frankly, I was told in such an emphatic way that it was none of my business that I’ve never tried to make it to be my business since. I have been interested in this subject for a long time and I do know that whatever the Air Force has on the subject is going to remain highly classified. – Senator Barry Goldwater, Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee (source)

Both NASA astronauts and high-ranking military personnel have told us that we are not alone, and that governments are aware of several different extraterrestrial races. It wasn’t long ago when Paul Hellyer, former Canadian Defence Minister stated that the government knows of at least four, or the Edgar Mitchell, the 6th man to walk on the moon told us that he has been privileged enough to be in on the fact that we are not alone, and that ‘they’ have been visiting us for years. (source)

There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, by other civilizations. Who they are, where they are from, and what they want should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not be the subject of ‘rubishing’ by tabloid newspapers.– Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee (source)

Perhaps it’s stories like the one that came out of Zimbabwe decades ago, where Harvard professor John Mack, heavily sponsored by Lawrence Rockefeller, uncovered a case of more than 60 school children witnessing a large craft landing with alien beings emerging from it. You can read more about that here. Perhaps it’s the fact that hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people have reported supposed encounters with extraterrestrial beings, either forced, friendly, or ‘unfriendly,’ or perhaps its the implant phenomenon. The list as to why the extraterrestrial hypothesis is plausible is a very long one, just as with the UFO phenomenon and the validity of it before it became mainstream, the reality of the extraterrestrial hypothesis is also very plausible, and based on my 10 + years of research, 100% definite. As former NASA astronaut and Princeton Physics professor Brian O’leary told the world, “there is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been visiting us for a very long time.” (source)

It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that they are space ships from another solar system. I think that they possibly are manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race that may have been investigating our Earth for centuries. -Herman Oberth, one of the founding fathers of rocketry and astronautics(source)

Even in the mainstream, scientists have told the world that we are not alone, that the probability for that possibility is next to zero, and that extraterrestrial life will most likely be discovered within the next couple of years.

Here is another video that I’ve used dozens of times, but I just want to get the point across that there is strong evidence for the extraterrestrial hypothesis, despite the fact that some believe it is weak.

What Will Happen When The World Finds Out We Are Not Alone?

The question is not if, it’s when.

We’ve been bombarded with alien propaganda for decades, and now, the topic is being taken more seriously by the mainstream, and people within the public eye. Hilary Clinton is a great example, as she is getting mainstream coverage regarding her willingness to ‘find out the truth.’ Even the head of her current presidential campaign, Jon Podesta, is a big advocate for UFO disclosure.

But this is confusing, given the fact that a number of government and military officials worldwide have been telling us the truth for decades. Why is truth only truth when mainstream media, or a person of extreme popularity within the public eye brings it up? This is a problem. When a big event happens, like 9/11, or, let’s say, an official announcement about the extraterrestrial presence, the worldwide population will be glued to the TV screen awaiting an explanation, without questioning it. I would be cautious of any information we receive from western governments that comes in the form of a major announcement.

We’ve seen deception on a number of different topics, from the ‘war on drugs’ to the ‘war on terror,’ so don’t expect something like this to be any different. Mainstream media like sot take real events and twist our perception regarding what’s going on behind them.

That being said, when we do find out, en masse, that we are not alone, there are so many questions to ask. The mere existence of these UFOs without the alien hypothesis even being contemplated brings up questions of science. How are they moving the way they do? They perform maneuvers that no known aircraft can. They tend to stop on a dime and hover, what type of propulsion systems are they using?

It’s certainly not the burning of fossil fuels. Who are they? Where do they come from? What else do they know? How do they get here? What about religion? What about panic? What about all of the years of secrecy and the questions that have been asked and answered by those keeping secrets? As you can imagine, there will be multiple questions, and you can bet that the world will come to a standstill in search of answers to their questions. It’s a topic that will touch all aspects of humanity, and humanity would be changed forever.

There is another way, whether it’s wormholes or warping space, there’s got to be a way to generate energy so that you can pull it out of the vacuum, and the fact that they’re here shows us that they found a way. – Jack Kasher, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus of physics, University of Nebraska. (source)

Perhaps the realization that we are not alone, and eventual open contact with extraterrestrials can help us answer questions about ourselves. Of course, contact is already happening, just not on a massive scale.

Yes, it’s both. It’s both literally, physically happening to a degree; and it’s also some kind of psychological, spiritual experience occurring and originating perhaps in another dimension. And so the phenomenon stretches us, or it asks us to stretch to open to realities that are not simply the literal physical world, but to extend to the possibility that there are other unseen realities from which our consciousness, our, if you will, learning processes over the past several hundred years have closed us off. – John Mack (source)

It seems to me that we are beyond the ‘panic’ point. I personally believe that we’ve been visited for a very long time, and if anything like that was to ever happen, it would have already taken place.

To really learn more about this topic, one has to be interested in it. To find out the why, whats, and the where, one can do the research and come up with educated guesses without ever being sure. It’s a deep topic that has branched into so many other areas of our existence: to faith, to health, and technology, all the way to our socio-economic structure and the way we decide to do things here on our planet.

The main point here is that people are going to have questions, and we are going to need teachers other than those who have been using mainstream media to dish out lies to the masses in order to fulfill some sort of agenda.

It will no doubt be interesting to see, in fact, it’s already taking place on an individual level. Slowly but surely.

Some of what people report as UFOs are extraterrestrial (ET) vehicles. Some of those extraterrestrial vehicles actually have ET crews, and some of those ET crews catch and release humans. — Dr. Don Donderi, a retired McGill University Professor of 40 years in the Department of Psychology (source)

Biggest Implication?

The biggest possible implication is to look inward at ourselves, and as one human race start taking the necessary steps to ‘repair’ the planet. Perhaps some type of realization like this could bring humanity closer together in some sort of way? Perhaps our species is at a critical point in its development, and ET contact plays some sort of role in that realization? Perhaps there are too many implications to contemplate.

Congress Told Publicly They Don’t Have Security Clearance To See Hillary Clinton’s Emails

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    It has been acknowledged in public hearings that there is a secret power that acts as a shadow government within the intelligence community that is able to withhold classified information from Congress in blatant defiance of the Constitution.

  • Reflect On:

    Is the dam about to burst on the shadow government in America? Is it the work of truth-seekers in the awakening community that is really pushing this out into the open?

It there are readers out there who have any remaining doubts about whether there is a shadow government in the United States that has long usurped and exercised power not authorized by the Constitution, this article will hopefully put those doubts to rest. Furthermore, while this shadow government has arranged for itself the highest levels of self-protection and secrecy possible, the truth of its existence and motives has trickled out slowly over the past couple decades. In recent times, a huge increase in the number and volume of leaks suggests that the dam may be ready to burst.

Given the fact that the ‘Hillary Clinton email scandal’ has not gone away and it appears that investigations into it will resume, a look at how prior investigations into the scandal were obfuscated will provide us with a window into the mechanism by which this shadow government operates. Prior to the 2016 election, it was discovered that Hillary Clinton had used a private, non-secured server to store emails that contained sensitive, classified information. By July 2016, at a Public Hearing of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee into the matter (video below), it had already been determined that Hillary Clinton had ‘allowed somebody without a security clearance in a non-protected format to see’ the emails.

The Exposure Of Unconstitutional Authority

The Constitution of the United States of America grants the highest powers in the nation to the President and to Congress, as the elected representatives of the people. There are checks and balances in place to make sure that power is not being abused, one of which was brought forth in the 2010 Intelligence Authorization Act, which established the ‘Office of the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community’:

In accordance with Title 50 U.S.C.A. Section 3033, the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community (ICIG) conducts independent and objective audits, investigations, inspections, and reviews to promote economy, efficiency, effectiveness, and integration across the Intelligence Community. The ICIG does so with integrity, professionalism, and independence. We conduct our mission free of external influence and provide objective assessments, findings, and conclusions, regardless of political or personal consequence.

In the discussion below, House Representative Jason Chaffetz asks Charles McCullough, the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community, to provide his committee with Hillary Clinton’s classified emails in order for this committee of Congress, the highest authority in the nation, to properly do their job of oversight.

Chaffetz: “Can you provided this committee, in a secure format, the classified emails?”

advertisement - learn more

McCullough: “I can to a certain extent. I cannot provide a certain segment of them because the agency… uhhh… that owns the information for those emails has limited the distribution on those, so… They’re uh… characterizing them as ORCON.”

Chaffetz: “Explain what ORCON is.”

McCullough: “Originator Control.” “…uh, so I can’t… I can’t give them to even Congress without getting the agency’s permission to provide them…”

Chaffetz: “Which agency?”

McCullough: “I can’t say that here in an open hearing, sir.”

Chaffetz: “So you can’t even tell me which agency won’t allow us as members of Congress to see something that Hillary Clinton allowed somebody without a security clearance in a non-protected format to see, that’s correct?”

Originator Control?

In this exchange, it is made clear by McCullough that Congress does not have authority over a certain government intelligence agency that the Inspector General dares not even name. This government agency claims ‘ownership’ of this classified information based on the concept of ‘Originator Control,’ which basically means that the agency has the power to limit and prevent  such information to be seen by the very bodies–the Inspector General and Congress–that are supposedly empowered to provide oversight of all their activities.

Please note that this is not a matter of ‘National Security,’ as it is a simple enough matter to make members of Congress aware of the need to keep information secret and have them ‘read in’ as it were. This was actually done with members of the ICIG staff, just so they could see the portion of those emails that the unnamed intelligence agency was actually willing to release.

However, the ‘elephant in the room’ at the hearing, made obvious by Rep. Jaffetz’ reaction to the answers he was hearing, is that this intelligence agency and the broader conspiracy of powers behind it have usurped Constitutional authority from Congress and have established the power to conceal information of their choosing from any oversight. In this particular case, it should be obvious that the only reason that this information is not being released to Congress is to protect Hillary Clinton from prosecution, since she is a well-entrenched member of this power and was set to do their bidding had she been elected President.

Clinton Allies Threaten The Inspector General

In the video below taken over a year later, we see what happens to someone like McCullough, who was simply trying to do his job of alerting Congress to the danger and violations involved in Hillary Clinton putting classified information on an unsecured server. Due to his resistance to the rhetoric of the Obama government, who tried to minimize the danger posed by Clinton’s actions, he was marginalized and even threatened:

Voiceover: As Election Day approached, McCullough says the threats went further, singling him out and another senior government email investigator.

Interviewer: You were given a warning?

McCullough: I was told that we would be the first two to be fired, with her administration, that that was definitely going to happen.

Interviewer: Is that how it’s supposed to be?

McCullough: No, I was in this context a whistleblower, I was explaining to Congress, I was doing exactly what they had expected me to do, and all of a sudden I was the enemy.

Voiceover: More than 2100 classified emails passed through Clinton’s personal server, and to this day, no one is accountable.

Interviewer: If you had done this, what would have happened to you?

McCullough: I’d be sitting in Leavenworth right now.

The second half of the video below has Tucker Carlson talking with former Clinton Campaign Advisor Richard Goodstein about the matter, and I believe it is illustrative of the type of public relations tactics that have been used by the Clinton campaign as an attempt to avert criminal charges: minimize claims, challenge even the most basic and obvious truths, flat out avoid answering questions, and change the subject to demonize Donald Trump.

The Takeaway

The layers of secret power within the shadow government, as McCullough suggests, have so far been able to prevent the prosecution of Hillary Clinton and her associates for this patently obvious criminal behavior. In fact, government committees who have the legal authority to investigate the matter appear to have neither the real power nor the ‘clearance’ to see the evidence they need to do their jobs.

The good news is, the veils of darkness and secrecy this shadow government has long been hiding under are lifting, and the growing awareness within the awakening community about the existence and nature of this ‘dark’ power will eventually lead to our emancipation from it the more we take our power away from it.

5G Is The “Stupidest Idea In The History of The World”- Washington State Biochemistry/Medical Science Prof

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Martin L. Pall, PhD and Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University outlines in a new report the many health risks associated with 5G technology and wireless radiation in general.

  • Reflect On:

    5G is gaining attention, and it might make us a little fearful of the effects, but we must observe this fear and bring things back to awareness of the issue so we can make better choices, but not be fearful. Check out our CE Protocol for this.

We are in the midst of a 5G wireless technology rollout, and politicians have yet to address safety concerns. I recently used Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as an example, but it’s happening worldwide. It’s one of many examples that illustrates how large corporations completely control politics. I also recently wrote about Robert F. Kennedy explaining how this came to be, and how they’ve been able to completely compromise government, big media, and our federal regulatory agencies that are supposed to be protecting and informing us.

In the video, he uses Big Pharma as an example, as they provide the most money to congress; even more so than big oil and gas. In that article I also outline multiple examples of fraud so readers can get a clearer picture of what’s going on and see some actual evidence of it.

It’s clear that we are not being protected, and politicians are simply abiding to the the will of their masters, the big corporations, who in turn act as slaves to their ‘financial overlords,’ the big banks. We continue to see products and services being approved and implemented without ever going through any safety testing. This is a big problem, and one of the main reasons why we could be seeing a drastic rise in multiple diseases and ailments, especially when it comes to neuropsychiatric disorders.  A study titled “Microwave frequency electromagnetic fields (EMFs) produce widespread neuropsychiatric effects including depression” published in the Journal of Chemical Neuroanatomy outlines this quite clearly, and it’s only one of thousands of peer-reviewed studies raising multiple concerns in regards to this type of technology.

Is there really any concern for the well being of humanity within these institutions? If not, why do we continue to support them? Is it because we’re under the illusion that there is actual concern? And why do we continue to take power away from ourselves by electing corrupt politicians?

Anyways, in this article, I’d like to draw your attention to Dr. Martin L. Pall, PhD and Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University. Taken from his report titled “5G: Great risk for EU, U.S. and International Health! Compelling Evidence for Eight Distinct Types of Great Harm Caused by Electromagnetic Field(EMF) Exposures and the Mechanism that Causes Them,” he states that:

“Putting in tens of millions of 5G antennae without a single biological test of safety has got to be about the stupidest idea anyone has had in the history of the world.”

advertisement - learn more

That report goes through a lot of science, which only adds to all of the science that’s already available regarding the harmful effects of 5G technology. If you’re looking for more information, I often point people toward the Environmental Health Trust because it’s a great resource that gives you access to more science.

This is not new information. For years, numerous studies have been published proving the health concerns regarding 5G technology and hundreds of scientists have petitioned the United Nations about them. These initiatives started as a result of the work done by Dr. Marin Blank from Columbia University’s Department of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics.

According to him, with regards to wireless radiation in general:

“We have created something that is harming us, and it is getting out of control. Before Edison’s light bulb there was very little electromagnetic radiation in our environment. The levels today are very many times higher than natural background levels, and are growing rapidly because of all the new devices that emit this radiation. Putting it bluntly they are damaging the living cells in our bodies and killing many of us prematurely.”

Again, it’s unbelievable that these technologies are being rolled out without any safety testing done. How is this even allowed to happen? The thing is, if there was safety testing done, there would likely be no changes made anyways, and these corporations would be allowed to rollout and utilize these technologies.

Seeing how this article is about the work of Dr. Pall, below is a lecture that goes into detail about his research and why we should be concerned with 5G technology.

It’s alarming that some people have been made to believe that this is “pseudoscience.” Not only is this surprising, but it’s also very concerning.

During the “Health in Buildings Roundtable” sponsored by the NIH and co-organized by the US CDC and several other organizations, Dr. Martin Pall from Washington State University (WSU) concluded that the “5G rollout is absolutely insane.” In this short presentation, Dr. Pall confirmed that the current 2G/3G/4G radiation the population is exposed to has been scientifically linked to: lowered fertility, insomnia, fatigue, depression, anxiety, major changes in brain structure in animals, cellular DNA damage, oxidative stress, hormonal disruption, cancer, and much more. Dr. Pall briefly explained the mechanisms of how the electro-smog emitted by our cell phones, wifi routers, cell phone antennas, and other wireless technologies affect human cells.

Related CE Articles & What You Can Do. We Don’t Have To Be Afraid

We’ve written about this topic in depth, and below are some recent articles we’ve published that go into more detail if you’re looking for more information.

On a side note, a lot of this information can spark a fearful reaction, and that’s normal. It could elicit the same fearful reaction you may have to other humanitarian issues including the massive amounts of pesticides being sprayed in our environment and on our food, the rising deforestation rates, and several other aspects of the human experience that need to be changed. As important as it is to not react with fear and panic, it’s even more important not to completely ignore these things and think everything will magically be okay.

Earth has become engulfed with this mess as a result of our ignorance, as a result of us ignoring important scientific findings such as these. If we continue along this path, disease rates will continue to rise. Awareness is key, and simply being informed about this issue is a huge step in the right direction.

So, what can you do? You could purchase some EMF protective clothing and bedding, or you could even paint your home with EMF protective paint. You can unplug your computer when not in use, turn off your cell phone, and unplug all your electronic devices before you go to sleep. You could have a wired internet connection, which is actually much faster than any wireless connection. You can live a healthy lifestyle, and you can use mind-body healing techniques to help you.

I write a lot about parapsychology, and it’s quite clear that our minds can have a significant impact on our biology. I know it sounds a little ‘new agey,’ but the truth is, if you don’t believe you are being harmed, odds are that the impact on your biology will be significantly different than someone who is fearful and stressed out about health concerns. Consciousness is huge, and it is one of the biggest factors in regards to preventative measures.

You can learn more about this balance through our CE Protocol.

Thanks To Yao Ming, The Slaughter Of Sharks For Their Fins Is Down 80%

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Thanks to the efforts of Yao Ming, the destructive history of shark fin soup is on the decline and so is the ivory trade in China.

  • Reflect On:

    What is your relationship like with plant and animal life? Do you view it as below you? As there simply to fulfill what you want?

The support for a shark fin soup ban has skyrocketed in China thanks to NBA Hall of Famer and GOAT of Chinese basketball, Yao Ming.

Back in 2011, Ming became the face of an awareness campaign on shark fin consumption that has been effective in raising awareness about an issue many thought was untouchable within Chinese tradition and cuisine. As a result of this campaign, most recent government surveys have shown that shark fin consumption in China has fallen by up to 80%!

Shark fin soup is considered a Chinese delicacy and has a deep history in traditional weddings, banquets and prestigious events. The soup, although considered a luxury item, has slight flavors and isn’t all that unique. Given the amount of suffering and death that goes into creating the soup, you’d imagine there would be something more to it other than light flavors and texture. Then again, our treatment of animals on this planet for even the slightest human benefit has been shocking for decades.

As many as 73 million sharks end up in the global shark fin trade every year according to Oceana.org. In many cases, when sharks are caught, their fins are removed and then they’re thrown back into the ocean to die as they’re unable to swim.

In 2006, as many as 75% of Chinese citizens were unaware that shark fins were actually used in shark fin soup. After awareness increased due to campaigns like the one Yao Ming participated in, public education has shifted the perception on shark fin soup.

Shark fin consumption in China has fallen by up to 80% in the last 10 years. And it just so happens that Yao Ming’s activism on the issue has been going for the exact same amount of time.

Ming Moved Onto China’s Ivory Trade Next… And Won

With Ming being China’s most powerful celebrity for 5 consecutive years between 2004 and 2009, you can imagine that, in a country of over a billion people, that truly says something in terms of public power. Ming was moved to take on China’s ivory trade and once again used his image and platform to raise awareness about elephant poaching. He teamed up with WildAid to eventually find success in making it illegal to buy Ivory in China.

Chinese state media Xinhua described the run-up to the ban as “one of the largest ever public awareness campaigns” with support from other celebrities such as actress Li Bingbing.

“We all know that there is ‘on paper,’ and under the paper, there’s still a long way to go to save the animals — and then save ourselves,” Ming told CNBC.

Yes, there is more work to be done. The way we treat our environment and the animal kingdom on this planet truly needs to change, and that change will only come from awareness and connecting to self. Great genocide takes place on our planet every single year… and it is that of animals for needless human consumption.

The Takeaway

Even the largest of challenges we face can be changed with the efforts of people. Sure, in this case, it was a celebrity with great influence, but in many other cases, it is large groups of people coming together. The March Against Monsanto is a great example of that. I recall when that was first starting out and we were one of just a small handful of websites who actively raised awareness about Monsanto’s actions – even when other partnering companies wouldn’t work with us because of our efforts in that area of reporting.

Slowly but surely, our stories and articles became more and more viral over the years. The conversations eventually moved to the mainstream, and over time, it is now being turned into action across the planet against GMO foods and practices. Something that started out with just a few people has grown into a global movement thanks to their tireless efforts to do the right thing.

We have the power to do great things. Something that seems small can build to be impactful over time, but even if it doesn’t, doing what inspires you is an incredible energy to add to collective consciousness and inspire others.

Change truly starts within. That’s why I created The 5 Days of You Challenge and made it available for everyone. With this challenge, everyone can begin getting in touch with themselves and making a difference in our world. Check it out here.
