- The Facts:
CE will be launching a 4-part interview with Anneke Lucas on January 17th, where she will describe in detail her involvement as a child in an elite Belgian pedophile ring, her remarkable escape, and her healing journey across the last few decades.
- Reflect On:
Has the moment in time arrived when humanity is ready to confront and process its own collective darkness?
One of the reasons that first-hand information about the true nature of elite Satanic ritual abuse and pedophilia is so rare is that child sex slaves are destined to be killed off–brought to the chopping block, in the case of Anneke Lucas and the elite Belgian pedophile ring she was ensnared in–once they were no longer useful to the network and their continued existence posed a threat.
What makes it all the more remarkable that Anneke Lucas was removed from the butcher’s block mere moments before she would be killed was the fact that those in the network who knew her as intelligent, defiant, and powerful–even at the age of eleven–must have had some concerns that at some point, she may recover enough from her trauma to expose the network and its heinous Satanic practices.

After all, she had been trained to understand the nature of the desires of these men, desires that she came to see as grounded in childhood trauma and the inability on the part of these men to grow up emotionally or to feel any real connection with others. The video clip below from CE’s exclusive 4-part interview with Anneke being launched on January 17 describes a portion of the training she was forced to go through:

One could argue that her knowledge and her innate psychic strength was ultimately, if indirectly, what saved her. One of her last perpetrators, a young man who had both been intensely intimate and immensely violent with her over the course of an atypical year-long relationship, was done with her. The perpetrator she called ‘the gangster’ felt their engagement had ‘reached its zenith,’ and indicated that she shouldn’t look to him for any help. He welcomed whatever fate the network, who no longer had any use for her, now had in store for her. In response to his indignation, Anneke was able to look at him defiantly and somehow enter into a ‘psychic lock’ with him in which she angrily projected the thought ‘I don’t need you!’ As Anneke explains more vividly in the interview, this experience seemed to have a noticeable emotional impact on him.
However, by this time Anneke had already been ushered to a handler, the sadistic ‘butcher’ who would perform the final act. Anneke was put on a butcher’s block that was blackened by the blood of the many children that had come before her. She began getting tortured by young children who were being forced to participate against their natural instincts with small implements like fish hooks and penknives. The handler had just ordered a young boy to retrieve a cleaver to chop her foot off, and this is what happened next:
“…and then the door opened, and I’m thinking, now there’s the boy with the cleaver, now they’re going to hack off my foot, but it was somebody else, it was one of the friends of the Boss, who said ‘It’s over.’ And the handler was in disbelief, he said ‘No, you can’t be serious.’ He [Boss’ friend] said, ‘Yup, that’s it. You can all go.’ And the handler said ‘She’s gonna give us trouble.’ He had no power there, so he and the children left…
I was taken to an office, there was the Boss of the network, the gangster, the friend who had stopped the–who was like a lawyer type–and the girl, she was there, this girl was maybe 9 years old, 8 or 9, I think 9, I hadn’t seen her before, but I remember what she looks like. Now, the Boss of the network starts to speak, and he says ‘You know, so you were saved, you were let go, but we don’t just do that here, you can’t just leave, someone has to die. So,’ he said, ‘is it going to be you, or is it going to be her?’ And that was the girl.”
What happened from this truly life and death choice she was forced to make is a most extraordinary set of experiences that saw Anneke get through this final ordeal and on a path to freedom. I feel you will only be able to get a full understanding of these experiences by listening to Anneke describe them in the interview. Suffice it to say here that the only reason that she even had the chance to be free at all was because she had evoked some true connection with the perpetrator she called ‘the gangster,’ who would pay dearly for his ‘sign of weakness’ within the network, as she describes here:
“I noticed that the gangster had always gotten a lot of respect and I noticed that they were sort of derisive of him, not caring so much about him, they were sort of laughing at him, and I immediately noticed the difference…I overheard men saying that he had sold his life, and for what? For that little whore? And I just started to question him and I realized that he made a deal while I was being tortured, he made a deal with the Boss that he was going to work for them, work for him, as his left-hand man or whatever, he was going to be at his service so he lost his power in the network because he became a servant of the Boss, for my life.”
Her Healing Journey
Anneke tells us that any sign of compassion or humanity is seen as a sign of weakness within the network. The perpetrator who had made a deal to save Anneke’s life, as it turns out, was eventually killed. But it was not before he had given Anneke a list of what she needed to do in order to survive–how and where she should live, what she should do, and what she should not do, with particular emphasis on the point that ‘you should never speak about the network. If you ever say anything then we’re going to come after you. And we’re going to find you and kill you.’
Ironically, speaking about her very experiences in the network, years later and in the private chambers of a trusted therapist, at first, was the start of Anneke’s healing journey. She had moved from Belgium to France, then London, Paris, New York, Los Angeles, and then back to New York, when she met a psychotherapist that would help her change her life.
I found a therapist who, even though she didn’t, she wasn’t an expert in this kind of work, she was open, and I started to, I started to get into the feeling, the feelings, from the horror, the horror of certain things that I’d witnessed and that I’d experienced, but it was mostly the horror, the pain with mostly for others, not so much for myself, it was for the other children. And the betrayal, because I was so attached to these father figures.
And so, to move from the perspective that they were my father and that they were this person who loved me so much, to move from that perspective of the child to the perspective of the adult, who sees the abuse and who takes everything into consideration, that is the journey of healing: from the child’s perspective, to connect with all the feelings that have had to be split off in order to keep that image alive of that person and then these split-off feelings, they have their own life, disconnected from the source, and then you know I was constantly in some kind of part of my trauma story, always re-experiencing these feelings but not really connected, so with the therapy and the specific connecting of the feelings with the original cause, when that happened, when I was grieving in therapy for what had actually happened, first of all I knew that it had happened, I didn’t have to wonder if it was real or not, and I also knew a lot more, because I understood, I was learning everything I saw, everything that I had done before, that was separate, you know, how these feelings had gone into other places, and I was seeing how I had been repeating these, and I was seeing how I was now different, actually cellularly different, from the integration that was occurring, that I didn’t just feel more whole, but I was actually a different person looking out of different eyes, and people were responding differently to me.
As one will note by the candor and equanimity with which Anneke Lucas speaks as she describes her experiences of extreme darkness and light, she is the model of a person who has found a path to healing that can serve as an inspiration to us all.

Intuition Is A “Superpower” Representing One of The Highest Forms of Intelligence
- The Facts:
A number of experiments have shown that human intuition is quite real and in some cases can be measurable.
- Reflect On:
How often do you use your intuition when it comes to decision making in your life? How often do you trust your gut instinct and follow your heart?
Mainstream science has been catching on to the fact that non-physical aspects of the human being are not only real, but they can be grown and developed into powerful tools for personal development and use. Non physical phenomena, like intuition, remote viewing, telepathy, and precognition (to name a few) for example, have been studied at the highest levels of government for decades. Various nations have poured millions if not billions of dollars into these programs for with demonstrated repeated success, but despite this fact these findings remain heavily unacknowledged, ridiculed, “classified” and in many cases chucked in the “pseudoscience” bucket.
It’s understandable, new information and discoveries have always been heavily opposed and “scoffed” at by intellectual authorities, especially if these discoveries don’t fit within the accepted framework of knowledge. There’s a general tendency to dismiss ideas that go against the grain and conflict what we’ve previously convinced ourselves is truth.
So, what exactly is intuition? A good way to describe it is a gut feeling, a sense, or a feeling about something. It’s arriving to some sort of truth about something, an event or experience without using any type of analytic reasoning. Intuition has been measured, which is why the US Office of Naval Research (ONR) admitted to developing methods to develop and measure this phenomenon for their soldiers.
We have to understand what gives rise to this so-called ‘sixth sense,’ says Peter Squire, a program officer in ONR’s Expeditionary Maneuver Warfare and Combating Terrorism department. Today’s Navy scientists place less emphasis on trying to understand the phenomena theoretically and more on using technology to examine the mysterious process, which Navy scientists assure the public is not based on superstition. “If the researchers understand the process, there may be ways to accelerate it — and possibly spread the powers of intuition throughout military units,” says Dr. Squire. The Pentagon’s focus is to maximize the power of the sixth sense for operational use.
As mentioned before, many interesting abilities that go beyond the conscious mind and utilize what some would call metaphysical aspects have long been used by governments and intelligence agencies. Perhaps one day the human race will use these abilities for progress and to better the human experience. It’s like technology, do we use it for the good of humanity or do we use it to build more powerful and destructive bombs and weaponry? This is why we here at Collective Evolution always emphasize that humanity needs a shift in consciousness. Our discoveries and developments don’t really matter, it’s more so the consciousness behind those discoveries that do. This is why we believe that the greatest and most potent form of change comes from within.
Dr. Judith Orloff, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA told Forbes that, “In my my private practice, I work with women executives who come to me to develop their intuition. They see it as a ‘superpower’ to use in all decisions at work as well as a guide for how to be good leaders and organizers” According to Dr. Orloff, scientists believe intuition operates through the entire right side of our brain, the brain’s hippocampus and through our gut (digestive system has neurons as well).
Alexandra Mysoor, the writer of the Forbes article goes on to explain:
When the neurotransmitters (chemical messengers) in your gut fire up, you may be feeling either “butterflies” or queasy sensations. Pay attention to those. It’s no accident we use the term intuition and gut feeling interchangeably because science has now shown us that our gut has a brain of its own, a second brain so to speak. In fact, our gut has an entire network of neurotransmitters called the enteric nervous system.
The body is truly an amazing puzzle, and we probably haven’t moved beyond the tip of the iceberg when it comes to discovering what we are actually capable of. For example, a study (meta analysis) in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience titled “Predicting the unpredictable: critical analysis and practical implications of predictive anticipatory activity” examined a number of experiments regarding precognition. These experiments indicate that the human body can actually detect randomly delivered stimuli that occur 1-10 seconds in advance. In other words, the human body seems to know of an event and reacts to an event that has yet to occur. What occurs in the human body before these events are physiological changes that are measured in the cardiopulmonary, the skin, and the nervous system.
Pretty cool, isn’t it? Another article written for Forbes written by Bruce Kasanoff by explains,
Intuition, argues Gerd Gigerenzer, a director at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, is less about suddenly “knowing” the right answer and more about instinctively understanding what information is unimportant and can thus be discarded.
Gigerenzer, author of the book Gut Feelings: The Intelligence of the Unconscious, says that he is both intuitive and rational. “In my scientific work, I have hunches. I can’t explain always why I think a certain path is the right way, but I need to trust it and go ahead. I also have the ability to check these hunches and find out what they are about. That’s the science part. Now, in private life, I rely on instinct. For instance, when I first met my wife, I didn’t do computations. Nor did she.”
A paper published in 2008 by Dean Radin, Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) explains,
Intuition is widely regarded as a key source of inspiration in medical diagnosis, technological innovation,business decisions, artistic achievement, and scientific discovery. Based upon an analysis of the lives of numerous scientific icons, Root-Bernstein concluded that “Virtually without exception, the greatest mathematicians and scientists assert that the development of this pictorial, visual, kinesthetic, or generally sensual algorithm (associated with intuition) is the basis for scientific thinking. But what is intuition? Given its central role in advancing science and civilization, one might expect that this topic has been a keen subject of inquiry, especially within academic psychology, for many decades. Surprisingly, until recently it has been studiously ignored. This may be because the quasi-magical, non-rational nature of intuition presents an embarrassing challenge to science, which prides itself on the power of rational knowing. Intuitive knowledge does not appear to function like the methodical interferences associated with rational thought.It arises “in a flash,” or “out of the blue,” sometimes with correct answers to thorny scientific and technical problems, elegant solutions to complex mathematical theorems, and complete scores for intricate musical compositions.
The Institute of HeartMath alongside Radin conducted an interesting experiment a few years ago. They explain,
Twenty-six adults experienced in using HeartMath techniques and who could sustain a heart-coherent state completed two rounds of study protocols approximately two weeks apart. Half of the participants completed the protocols after they intentionally achieved a heart-coherent state for 10 minutes. The other half completed the same procedures without first achieving heart coherence. Then they reversed the process for the second round of monitoring, with the first group not becoming heart-coherent before completing the protocols and the second group becoming heart-coherent before. The point was to test whether heart coherence affected the results of the experiment.
Participants were told the study’s purpose was to test stress reactions and were unaware of its actual purpose. (This practice meets institutional-review-board standards.) Each participant sat at a computer and was instructed to click a mouse when ready to begin.
The screen stayed blank for six seconds. The participant’s physiological data was recorded by a special software program, and then, one by one, a series of 45 pictures was displayed on the screen. Each picture, displayed for 3 seconds, evoked either a strong emotional reaction or a calm state. After each picture, the screen went blank for 10 seconds. Participants repeated this process for all 45 pictures, 30 of which were known to evoke a calm response and 15 a strong emotional response.
The results of the experiment were fascinating to say the least. The participants’ brains and hearts responded to information about the emotional quality of the pictures before the computer flashed them (random selection). This means that the heart and brain were both responding to future events. The results indicated that the responses happened, on average, 4.8 seconds before the computer selected the pictures.
How mind-altering is that?
Even more profound, perhaps, was data showing the heart received information before the brain. “It is first registered from the heart,” Rollin McCraty Ph.D. explained, “then up to the brain (emotional and pre-frontal cortex), where we can logically relate what we are intuiting, then finally down to the gut (or where something stirs).”
This study showed that the heart, alongside the brain, has some sort of intuitive intelligence.
The Takeaway: We are living in a day and age where new information and evidence are constantly emerging, challenging what we once thought was real or what we think we know about ourselves as human beings. It’s best to keep an open mind. Perhaps there are aspects of ourselves and our consciousness that have yet to be discovered. Perhaps if we learn from this information it can help us better ourselves and others.
We live our lives constantly thinking and analyzing, we grow up in school memorizing and we are not really taught anything about our feelings, emotions and intuition. Imagine the difference it would make in our individual and collective lives if we grew up learning how to trust our intuition, how to follow it and what it is? It begs the question, how many of us truly follow our heart? We seem to be thrust into a system that encourages us to find the best job and really think about our future. There’s nothing wrong with that but we have to ask ourselves, what impact does it have on us mentally if we do not follow our heart, our intuition? Are we seeing a big rise in drug use, depression and other mental issues because society forces us to in a direction we really don’t desire to go? Are we unhappy because we are not engaging in things that our heart desires to engage in? Are we not doing enough of what we love? Something to think about. Never ignore the voice of your gut, your heart, your intuition. It’s always telling us something and it’s time we ‘listen.’ This applies to all experiences, from deciphering information and truth to determining what path it is you want to take in life.
New Moon In Capricorn: Power Struggles, Intensity & Renewal
We are having a New Moon in Capricorn on January 13th throughout most of the world and on the night of the 12th in Central to Western North America. This is initiating a 29.5 day lunar cycle and new wave of energy for the coming month; however, the astrological configurations mentioned in this article will be more prominent over the following two weeks. This cycle will include a Full Moon in Leo on January 28th/29th.
Capricorn season began on the December 21st solstice, just over three weeks prior to this lunation, and will end on January 19th/20th when Aquarius season begins. However, this New Moon will carry some of the Capricorn energies into the earlier part of Aquarius season.
This is a good period of working with and co-creating with the energies of this sign. Capricorn is associated with structure, ambitions, achieving goals, mastery, business, career, social status, responsibilities, duty, authority, governance, and hard work. It is cautious, worldly, conservative, and pragmatic. As an Earth sign, it has the qualities of practicality, reliability, solidity and being grounded. This element is very much orientated around the physical and material world. Negatively, Capricorn energy can be too serious, cynical, cold, controlling, and unrelenting.
New Moon Conjunct Pluto
This New Moon is aligned with Pluto which is also in Capricorn. This energy can be strong willed, focused, calculated, strategic, secretive, transformational, probing, deep, regenerating, sexual, cleansing, purging, and evolutionary. It can also be destructive, heavy, controlling, intense, subversive, obsessive, compulsive, jealous, power seeking, authoritarian, abusive, violent, manipulative, and dark.
Pluto rules investments, taboos, transmutation, hidden matters, repressed feelings, shadows, psychoanalysis, and the underworld. It is associated with power struggles, conspiracies, viruses, death, fears as well as fearlessness. This Plutonian energy will be strongly felt during the New Moon and in the two days following it, but it will still affect the entire Lunar Cycle.
Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008 and will be there until 2024. Collectively, this is a period of major changes affecting government, financial structures, and business in a big way. This has been more obvious in recent years as Saturn, the Lunar South Node, and Jupiter have all joined Pluto in the same sign. This will continue to be a big theme over the remaining years of Pluto in Capricorn and beyond. We also recently had a Great Conjunction in Aquarius on December 21st which also reflects changes affecting society in a big way over a long period.
This Lunar Cycle can really trigger the collective impact of this energy especially considering the current landscape. To learn more about all of this, I recommend reading my Pluto in Capricorn article from 2017 here and my more recent Great Conjunction article here.
Mars Conjunct Uranus In Taurus Square Jupiter & Saturn in Aquarius
The action oriented Mars recently changed signs into Taurus on January 6th/7th and has since been approaching Uranus, the planet of surprises and rebellion, in the same sign. They are both applying squares to Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius which are still in close proximity with each other.
During this New Moon, from January 12th-14th, Mars is in a square with Saturn which is the first exact aspect made between these four planets. Our actions can be faced with obstacles, delays, resistance, or limitations. Conflicts around boundaries or restrictions can play out. Doing tasks may require extra patience and caution.
As this is finishing, Jupiter will be going into an exact square with Uranus from January 14th to the 19th. This energy can be freedom seeking, rebellious, scattered, idealistic, or even risk taking. It could be good for exploring, learning, education, or expansiveness around things that are new to us, unconventional, technological, scientific, progressive, or metaphysical.
Mars then makes its exact conjunction with Uranus from the 19th to the 21st while it is finishing its square Jupiter. It can really crank up the energies mentioned above and this energy can also be impulsive, erratic, experimental, disruptive, surprising, irritable, and quick tempered.
From the 21st until the 24th, Mars will then be in exact square with Jupiter. We may feel like doing things in a big way but it’s important to be cautious around what we do because we can more easily apply ourselves in a way that is overextending, overestimating, or overlooking of important things. Conflicts around beliefs, opinions, judgements, and principles can play out.
During the later part of this period, the Sun will be in a conjunction with Saturn from the 23rd to 24th. This can have a serious tone, and perhaps the need to be realistic, cautious, orderly, disciplined, committed, or responsible, may come up. Following this, the Sun will be making aspects to Jupiter, Uranus, and Mars in the last week of January and into the first few days of February which can trigger some of the energies mentioned earlier in this section.
The combination of all of these planets in close proximity to aspects with each other throughout January can be good for applying ourselves in new ways that are congruent with changes that are happening personally or collectively. However, it can also be a time of anger, impulsiveness, and rebelliousness towards obstacles, restrictions, opinions, beliefs, authority figures, as well as other recent or upcoming developments, circumstances, or changes.
Venus Square Chiron & Trine Uranus, Mercury Entering pre-Retrograde Shadow
Venus in Capricorn is in a square with Chiron in Aries at the time of this New Moon and in the day leading up to it. This can bring up wounds, blockages, negative patterns, or can reflect themes around healing, holistic perception, or perhaps solutions when it comes to love, our social life, friends, pleasures, values, or monetary issues.
Venus is also in a trine with Uranus in Taurus which is strongest in the day and half following this New Moon. It can bring a new, stimulating, unusual, exciting, inspiring, liberating, unexpected, or unique energy around our relations with others. This can also reflect surprises, positive changes, or freeing type of developments around financial matters. In some cases it can be good for exploring new ways of making money that can be innovative, online, metaphysical, or technologically oriented.
On January 15th, Mercury in Aquarius will be entering the shadow period of its retrograde that will be beginning on January 30th/31st and last until February 20th/21st. It can increasingly start to feel like it’s retrograde during these weeks leading up to it as delays, technological/mechanical problems, mistakes, miscommunications, misunderstandings, or other complications can be more probable than in the previous six weeks.
Certain developments, interactions, connections, or issues that occur at this time can be connected to how this retrograde will affect us in February through its adjusting and perceptive changing qualities. There can be something we are not seeing clearly that needs to unfold throughout the upcoming retrograde and post-retrograde process. I will be writing a separate article on this, you can join my mailing list here to ensure that you receive it.
Making Intentions & Things To Consider
What changes do you need to make when it comes to your ambitions, career, structures, or business matters? What can you do to make your profession more congruent with a changing world? What are you fighting for and what can you do to be more calculated, effective, and persuasive? What kind of strategies can you employ to help you achieve your goals? Do you need to be more innovative when it comes to making money? What area of your life is calling for some sort of purging, cleansing, empowerment, and/or transformation?
These are just some examples of what to consider or focus your intentions on at this time. However, it is good to reflect on anything else that is coming up for you. It is generally best to make any intentions within the first 24 hours following a New Moon. The exact moment it will occur is 5:00am Universal Time on January 13th.
