Indoctrinated Feminism? Candace Owens Shares Why She Doesn’t Support Modern Day Feminism

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Candace Owens, a political activist explains why she doesn't support the current feminist movement. Furthermore, women's liberation of today may have some unexpected routes, starting with the CIA for ulterior political motives.

  • Reflect On:

    Are women being brainwashed and taught feminism instead of actually experiencing it? Is our perception being manipulated? Why were other women's liberation movements paid zero attention and shut down, and the CIA funded movement promoted?

Feminism is a movement that works towards creating equality between sexes and women’s rights. Though I fully support equality and all to have freedom and rights, I believe that aspects of this movement have created separation amongst us, stemming from over-identifying with gender.

If we look at gender issues, particularly women’s issues, we’ve seen massive amounts of inequality throughout history. For example, look at all of our founding ‘fathers’ of science, quantum physics, engineering, psychology, etc. Gender inequality exists within every field of academia. Many ‘groundbreaking’ discoveries have been attributed to men, and solely to men. Many have been stolen from women, simply because they were women, and many discoveries made by women have gone completely unacknowledged by academia. The wage gap is another example of inequality, but more on that later.

One of my favourite examples women in history is Rachel Carson, a major player in the environmental movement today. Carson sparked the entire movement in the 1960s with her book Silent Spring. She is a writer, biologist, environmentalist and ecologist. The book documented the dangers of pesticides and herbicides, something that we are still trying to create awareness about today. I wrote an article a few years ago regarding ‘female revolutionaries’ you won’t hear about in history class if you’d like to see some more examples.

It is my hope that one day we will have a book that details all revolutionary minds, regardless of their gender, or even race.

Candace Owens On Feminism

That being said, I still believe there are some important points to consider when talking about gender issues. A viewpoint that really resonates with me is one from political activist Candace Owens, which she shared in an article on the Stamford Advocate. Owens explains:

My first outward rejection of the modern ideals of feminism occurred accidentally, during a mandatory women’s studies course in college. My professor had just gone over a staggering statistic that some 89 percent of people suffering with eating disorders were women. “This,” she explained, was “due to the unrealistic expectations placed upon us by the patriarchy.” “What then do you make of all the men that do steroids?” I surmised aloud, “… be it the fault of the matriarchy?”

This is a great point, and it comes out of questioning the blame culture we have in our modern world. Candace’s question highlights the pressures society as a whole puts on both genders. Both have been given ‘identities’ within society, and both are subjected to sexism. For years, elitist groups and corporations have created narratives surrounding gender norms in order to capitalize on gender identification.

She then goes on to describe how it was the above mentioned exchange that sparked her thesis on why feminism is broken, and how women are being taught it rather than experiencing it.

Women are being taught it, rather than experiencing it. In fact, in many cases we are being encouraged to override our experiences in favour of indoctrination. At best, the movement denotes a selective musketeer mentality: it’s a pledge that a bad experience had by one ought to be broadcast and accepted as the reality for all, but a good experience had by one? Well, that woman ought to just shut up and keep it to herself. Yup. Let us hand a microphone to the woman who was beat by her husband, but muffle the one beside her who might wish to thank her own for the role he plays in her happiness.

I thought this was a very interesting point, and one that I can relate to. I myself am an ethnic minority, but have not directly experienced racism. Although I know my parents and many others have, I believe we’ve also come to expect this behavior from others, rather than observe it when it actually happens.

This behaviour, on both sides, comes from a narrative of separation that has become so ingrained within society that we sometimes perceive experiences as being racially motivated even when they may not be. Many women have also grown accustomed to distrusting men, feeling hatred toward men and acting from the same sexist mentality they feel inclined to fight against. Does this not simply reinforce hatred and inequality, and lack empathy as a whole? Does this separated behaviour in society not benefit our political overlord’s power? Separatism, gender and racial issues are frequent subjects within media, and although they deserve to be discussed, they are also overblown and hyped up for political purposes. More on that below.

Identity Politics

Promoting identity politics has always been a governmental tool, and as a result, the masses simply follow and become indoctrinated without ever questioning it. Identity politics has served, and continues to serve, many useful purposes for the elite. Mark Crispin, a professor of media studies from New York University, shares something many of us are not aware of:

It’s interesting to note that Ford and Rockefeller and the other foundations with strong CIA connections started giving grants in the early 70s to study race and gender. It was a sudden move towards identify politics by these organizations and the theory is that the reason they did this was to balkanize the left and to prevent it from pursuing any kind of a class or economic analysis (source)

He goes on to state how, rather than empowering a ‘class’ identity which supports unity, major academic institutions are instructed to promote the primacy of race and gender to ensure that the establishment’s agenda of ‘polarization’ is always fuelled.

New York University (NYU), one of the most prestigious and expensive institutions in the United States, likes to present itself as liberal and “diverse,” and as an “institution without walls.” Many of the school’s departments, including history, sociology or anthropology, count leading representatives of postmodernism and identity politics among their faculty, and the promotion of race and gender as having primacy over class is, in many ways, the official school ideology.

However, behind this surface of “diversity” lie extensive ties to big business, the Democratic Party and the military. As this series will demonstrate, NYU is now closely integrated into the preparations for war against both Russia and China, and, along with that, in the efforts of both the state and the major corporations to conduct mass surveillance and censor free speech on the Internet. (source)

Feminism As Social Engineering

It’s interesting to note the Ford and Rockefeller connections with regards to gender studies. It reminded me of an interview conducted with Aaron Russo, a well-known American entertainment businessman, film producer and director, and political activist. He’s best-known for producing movies such as Trading PlacesWise Guys, and The Rose.

In an interview, he explained a conversation he had with one of the members of the Rockefeller family. He stated how he was told that they (the Rockefeller’s) used the media they owned (and everything else) to create, fund and push the women’s liberation movement. Aaron expressed (to Rockefeller) how women have the right to work and get equal pay, no doubt, and this should be no different from men, just like they won the right to vote etc., but he was unaware of the intentions behind the movement.

The same forces that have suppressed women all of these years were responsible for supporting the liberation movement. How weird is that?

He explains how the women’s liberation movement was birthed because they realized they didn’t want to just tax half the population, they wanted all of them. The second reason was to indoctrinate people in regards to how they think. In this case, it was women, but just as equally, men had also been indoctrinated in their ways of thinking as well. This is something we still see today.

Russo expresses how, up until then, he thought the effort and movement was quite a noble thing, but when he saw the intentions behind the movement and the sudden big push it had received, he saw “the evil behind what he thought was a noble venture.”

The Rise Of Gloria Steinem

After this, Gloria Steinem became more popular. Steinem was known as a feminist, journalist, and social political activist, and was seen as the leader and spokeswoman for the American feminist movement in the late 1960s and early 1970s. However, there seems to be quite a bit of evidence suggesting that she worked for the CIA, spying on Marxist students in Europe and infiltrating their meetings.

She didn’t deny this, as an article from the New Yorker points out:

So what, exactly, was the N.S.A. useful for? This is where things get murky. According to Paget’s account, the N.S.A. was apparently not used for what the C.I.A. called “political warfare.” The agency did create a front organization called the Independent Research Service (inventing titles that are as meaningless as possible is part of the spy game) for the purpose of recruiting American students to disrupt Soviet-controlled World Youth Festivals in Vienna, in 1959, and Helsinki, in 1962. The person in charge was the future feminist Gloria Steinem, who knew perfectly well where the money was coming from and never regretted taking it. “If I had a choice I would do it again,” she later said.

Regarding the women’s liberation movement: (source)

Apparently, Steinem also tried to suppress information unearthed in the 70s by a radical feminist group called the Red Stockings. This group spoke up against Steinem, and the two were seen as the main women’s liberation movement leaders at the time. The Red Stockings seemed to be very upset with Steinem, questioning her motives and why she was receiving all of the funding from these intelligence agencies to push her version of the women’s liberation movement. (source)

Ms. magazine is what the Red Stockings seemed to be upset about, which was founded by Steinem. It represented a different kind of women’s liberation movement than all of the others at the time. Again, this was likely because of her intelligence agency connections and the motivations behind them. It’s the one that received the most attention and became the most popular.

 

Some of these women who were in the audience at the Red Stockings’ press conference asked why the Red Stockings did not give greater prominence to their political critique of Ms. (Steinem) than to to allegations that Steinem had worked for the CIA. Sarachild’s response (from Red Stockings) about that is that the Red Stockings is discussing liberalism in the women’s movement in its forthcoming journal, Feminist Revolution, but that they consider Ms. inauthentic. “Ms.’s liberalism is different from other’s liberalism, “she said. Her first feelings that something was wrong with Ms. came at a meeting in 1972 where women from Ms. were telling old NOW members how to organize. She said that although she disagreed with the NOW women on many issues, she almost cried at the condescension with which they were being treated. Sarachild does not believe that Red Stockings‘ challenge to Ms. can be adequately described as a struggle because “one faction has all the money and power.” (source)

Steinem tried to suppress this information unearthed in the 1970s by the Red Stockings. In 1979, Steinem and her powerful CIA-connected friends, Katharine Graham of the Washington Post and Ford Foundation President Franklin Thomas, prevented Random House from publishing it in Feminist Revolution. Nevertheless, the story appeared in the Village Voice on May 21, 1979.

How fascinating are all of these connections?

If Candace Owens was alive back then, she would probably have been part of the real feminist revolution, not the seemingly manufactured one that took over for ulterior motives and agendas. Although the feminist movement was one of importance at its time in history, it’s important to understand all motives behind it today.

It seems that this was the start of indoctrinated feminism, a tool that can be used to divide society.

Is Feminism Taught More Than It’s Experienced?

Owens preaches, as mentioned above, that feminism today isn’t experienced as much as it is taught.

I find it necessary to formally state that not once in my entire life was I made to feel incapable, or weak next to my male peers. Not once did a school teacher tell me that I ought to learn to cook and clean rather than to read and write, and for clarification, the eating disorder that I had in college had absolutely nothing to do with the urging of any man.

How many feminists out there have actually experienced discrimination because they are a female? How many simply believe they have because their minds were indoctrinated with this mindset in the first place? I’m not suggesting that we’ve achieved equality 100% of the way, nor am  I saying you shouldn’t speak up for someone who’s being discriminated against. It’s clear that gender inequality can still be seen in aspects of society today. However, we’re bombarded by reports on sexism and separatism on a daily basis by mainstream media, andit feels as though the hate and divide amongst men and women is widening regardless of how close the equality gap has become. Why?

It gets ickier: I happen to find it simply polite when a man opens a door for a woman and not once has the action sent me into analytical overdrive regarding what sort of monster would assume my incapability?! No, in fact I typically just say thank you. And I’m not sorry for any of this by the way, so if that somehow disqualifies me from sitting at the table of “real women,” I’ll learn to live with the losses. Happy women are growing tired of being silenced. I’ve got girlfriends who choose to stay at home to raise their children, and they are not prisoners; I know a few that voted against Hillary Clinton who are far from deplorable, and perhaps most shockingly of all, not one of these ladies feels victimized by the state of their own womanhood.

Asking them to disregard their content in favor of a movement, isn’t a movement, it’s an agenda, and a strikingly ironic one at that; it tells us women repeatedly that we must accept our status as the weaker sex, the very notion that it claims to reject. – Candace Owens

According to Owens, women are being targeted and bullied into a certain train of thought:

It is not my intention to laugh or offend. I am aware that in a culture where “being a victim” is the new black, such a bold proclamation of happiness might unintentionally create a glitch in the matrix. I am aware that if I seek to be on-trend, then I ought to grab onto my womanhood, or my African-American roots, or my absolutely-anything-at-all that might deem me an objectifiable minority. And then I’d cry boo-hoo and wait … for a hand-out, perhaps. Or a pat on the back, or a hashtag that would make it rain validation in the deep recesses of my heart. And then of course I would no longer have to be responsible for anything; Not my own lack of achievements, not my today, and certainly not my tomorrow because I could blame it all on my unfortunate status as a victim. It’s just they couldn’t program me to think like this, and for that, I am of no use to feminism.

This narrative reminded me of a post I saw floating around on social media, shared below. This is where the conversation of emotional intelligence and dropping our identities comes into play.  Are we addicted to drama, conflict, and disagreement? When what we learn causes our belief systems to collapse, do we hang onto them anyways? Do we get stuck trying to hold onto them because we identify with them? Sometimes it’s not easy to let go of our political identities, the sides we choose, and even the division created by over-identifying with race, religion and culture. But at some point, if we want change, we have to learn to let go of these narratives and start looking at truth. Think back to a moment where you had to let go of a belief. How did you do it? Was it so bad once you did? Where might you be stuck today if you hadn’t let go of it? Is what you are stuck on or fighting for truly making you happy or making your life better?

Feminism in Light of the Western World

I feel we are stretching the gender a little too much, as far as I’m concerned, whether someone is a man or a woman is not even my concern. What somebody’s got in their pants what’s my business about it? These things are relevant only in bathrooms and bedrooms. This should not be relevant anywhere else. Because, you must understand, too much identification with gender essentially means you’re identifying with your body parts. If you must identify with your body parts, if that’s the only way you can live, why choose reproductive organs? At least choose the brains! Why are we constantly thinking who is a man, who is a woman? This is a fetish. Why are you even bothered? Only for certain relationships it matters, the rest of the time, why does it matter? I’m asking, we are making too much out of it, by this both genders will suffer.

These words come from Sadhguru, which I also found very interesting. He goes on to explain.

Yes, unfortunately, there have been long periods of exploitation of women across the world and even in this country, but you must understand there was a time when, in this country, women were not exploited by any means. They lived fabulous lives, you just look back and see. Do you see, for example, you see, of lets say Ramayana, Mahabharata (Hindu texts) whatever you have, do you see women going around on whales? Do you see women hiding? No, the queen sat on the kings lap in public. So, this was not a culture like that but you must understand we have faced a little over a thousand years of innovations. When innovations happen, they not only go for your gold, they also go for your wives and your daughters first. So, putting them behind, hiding them somewhere, among sacks of grain, became a normal thing. So when thousands of years of continuous innovations happen the risk of keeping your woman out became a very wrong thing to do, so unfortunately they’re still continuing. I think we’ll break through in the next coming generation, I think we are already breaking through in a big way but we must understand that we are only the second generation after independence, so don’t be in too much of a rush and make this one species into two.

Unfortunately, in reaction to the past exploitations, we are trying to create two species. It’s very important the changes we make in our society are not in reaction to the wrong things that happened in the past.

This is another great point that echoes Owens’ point made above.

It’s important to mention that some feminists may react to the queen/king comment above, implying that the role of a king and a queen sitting on his lap renders the queen inferior. Success and happiness are not measured by the amount of money we make. This brings me to one of Sadhguru’s main points about modern day feminism: It’s driven by economics.

And no, this does not mean there should not be equality in pay. Obviously, there should be total equality when it comes to pay.

But throughout history, men and women have had different roles, none represent something better, and both were equally as strong. In fact, every human being has masculine and feminine energies within them, we are two halves that make a whole. One no better than the other. But if we only focus on money when discussing gender inequality, we will always live in a masculine dominated world, “not male, but masculine” (Sadhguru). The feminine qualities will disappear if we continue to look at this from an economics perspective, as females will also strive for what is ‘masculine.’

Suppose a man here feels like having a baby, can he have? So whatever, we can complain we don’t have equal opportunity. Biologically we’re designed to fulfil different aspects of nature. Why is one thing superior and another thing inferior? Simply because you are making economic activity as the ultimate activity, this is the only problem. The fundamental problem is you are making economic activity the greatest thing you can do. Just making money is the most successful thing you can do in life? Valuing people only for the money that they earn, you will make the entire world into your market place. 

The Takeaway

Personally, I’m not sure how many gender issues truly exist today, and how many examples of inequality are present.  Let’s take the wage gap, for example. The average woman’s pay is approximately 80 percent of that of a man’s. Is this because they are women and are not given equal hiring opportunities? Or is it because men are more attracted to higher paying jobs, like the role of a CEO? Then again, many of these statistics only take into account white women, and so the gender wage gap is significantly higher within many minority groups. There are so many more factors at play here than what we are shown.

The bottom line on statistics is we must look at a multifactored analysis behind the questions we have, and not simply blame it on one aspect like gender. Many, many things go into understanding why things are the way they are today. This is precisely why many people are exceptions to statistics, because it is never about ONE factor.

Society often frowns upon the traditional image of women being in the home, taking care of children and being nurturing. We implied that this was somehow inferior to working outside the home, when really it’s equally as important as any other job, if not more. And it’s not just a woman’s job. Many men are shamed for wanting to stay home and look after their children, as societal norms encourage men to provide for their families in a more ‘traditional’ sense.

So, I encourage you to ask yourselves: What’s really going on here with modern day feminism? I ask all women of my generation reading this: Have you ever experienced discrimination simply because you’re a woman? If so, how often?

To reiterate, it’s quite clear that there are issues we still must address as a society, but in order to solve them don’t we need to truly understand them? We also should consider that we are approaching these subjects from a place of love, and not anger or hate. Otherwise, this will only create more separatism and further sexism.

New Study of Mind-Matter Interaction Via Double Slit Experiment Yields “Remarkable” Results

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A new analysis of the double slit experiment shows, according to the author, "remarkable" results when it comes to analyzing the mind-matter interaction problem.

  • Reflect On:

    Why has most of this science been studied by the Department of Defense? Why are real life, documented and recorded examples never used in these studies? Why is the statistical significance of parapsychology never mentioned?

Does mind influence matter? The answer is an unquestionable yes, this fact is firmly established in scientific literature, and the only thing up for debate is just how much of an effect our minds can have on matter.

In what’s known as the double slit experiment, tiny bits of matter (photons, electrons, or any atomic-sized object) are shot toward a screen that has two slits in it. On the other side of the screen, a video camera records where each photon lands. When scientists close one slit, the camera will show us an expected pattern. But when both slits are opened, an interference pattern emerges — they begin to act like waves. This means that each photon individually goes through both slits at the same time and interferes with itself, but it also goes through one slit, and it goes through the other. Furthermore, it goes through neither of them. The single piece of matter becomes a “wave” of potentials, expressing itself in the form of multiple possibilities, and this is why we get the interference pattern.

How can a single piece of matter exist and express itself in multiple states, without any physical properties, until it is “measured” or “observed”? Furthermore, how does it choose which path, out of multiple possibilities, to take?

Then, when an “observer” decides to measure and look at which slit the piece of matter goes through, the “wave” collapses, and then things really get interesting.

The connection between human consciousness, or factors associated with human consciousness such as intention, thoughts, feelings and emotions, and the physical realm is fascinating. This is precisely why nearly all of the founding fathers of quantum physics were so preoccupied with learning more about consciousness and “non-material” science in general. For instance, the theoretical physicist who originated quantum theory, Max Planck, regarded “consciousness as fundamental” and matter as a “derivative from consciousness.” Eugene Wigner, another famous theoretical physicist and mathematician, also emphasized how “it was not possible to formulate the laws of quantum mechanics in a fully consistent way without reference to consciousness.”

A paper published in the peer-reviewed journal Physics Essays by Dean Radin, PhD explains how this experiment has been used multiple times to explore the role of consciousness in shaping the nature of physical reality. The paper showed that meditators were able to collapse quantum systems at a distance through intention alone. The meditators were the “observer” in this case.

In fact, as Radin points out in his lecture, a “5 sigma” result was able to give CERN the Nobel Prize in 2013 for finding the Higgs particle (which turned out not to be Higgs after all). In this study, they also received a 5 sigma result when testing meditators against non-meditators in collapsing the quantum wave function. This means that mental activity, the human mind, attention, and intention, which are a few labels under the umbrella of consciousness, compelled physical matter to act in a certain way.

“Observations not only disturb what has to be measured, they produce it… We compel [the electron] to assume a definite position… We ourselves produce the results of the measurement.”

Fascinating, isn’t it?

The New Study

I recently came across a post on Radin’s Facebook page regarding a new study just published in PLOS ONE titled Independent re-analysis of alleged mind-matter interaction in double-slit experimental data.

His Facebook post reads,

Just published. “… this paper is the third independent statistical analysis … showing significant differences in fringe visibility between concentration and relaxation epochs of human subjects….”. The author made several assumptions that differed from ours, which resulted in reduced statistical power. That in turn led to a more conservative conclusion. Even so, anomalies were clearly found in these data that defy ordinary explanations.

In that study, they provided a “two year long experimental dataset in which authors of Radin, et al., 2016 claim to find evidence of mind-matter interaction is independently re-analyzed. In this experiment, participants are asked to periodically shift their attention towards or away from a double-slit optical apparatus. Shifts in fringe visibility of the interference pattern are monitored and tested against the common sense null hypothesis that such shifts should not correlate with the participant’s attention state.”

They concluded that:

The thorough analysis pursued in this paper gives a much broader and full picture of the data than the ones previously published in [1] and [19]. On the one hand, we find undeniable anomalies in the human data with shifts of the fringe visibility in the direction expected by human intention. The fact that fringe visibility decreases when human intention tries to make it decrease, and increases when human intention tries to make it increase is remarkable.

That being said, the authors concluded that they still cannot give a definitive conclusion on mind-matter interaction. However, publications like this are still a huge step forward.

They also mention a very important point: The stigma behind these findings and how it encroaches on belief systems have perhaps not allowed a more rigorous scientific investigation into these subjects.

Given the controversial aspect of this research, attempts to reproduce such an experiment should be done by groups of experts from different fields of research including quantum mechanics, neuroscience and statistics, both skeptics and believers, collaborating to design the most rigorous protocol. Personal beliefs, may they be strongly in favour or against the mind-matter interaction hypothesis, have to be put aside, to collectively pursue a clear and objective investigation of this particular interpretation of the quantum measurement problem.

Here’s another great quote alluding to the same thing:

There seems to be a deep concern that the whole field will be tarnished by studying a phenomenon that is tainted by its association with superstition, spiritualism and magic. Protecting against this possibility sometimes seems more important than encouraging scientific exploration or protecting academic freedom. But this may be changing. —Cassandra Vieten, PhD and President/CEO at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (source)

What The Authors Failed To Recognize

Never in these studies do they mention real world examples. Cases of mind influencing matter have been reported throughout history and across many cultures, more specifically in regards to ‘supernormal’ abilities such as telepathy, psychokinesis, and other phenomena that lie within the realms of parapsychology. This is evident in ancient literature, from the Vedic texts and the yoga sutras to Jesus, Moses, Milarepa, Mohammed, and more.

In 1987, researchers at the Institute of Space-Medico Engineering, as mentioned in the CIA document earlier in the article, publicized a fraction of their work in the form of a film showcasing their work and what they had accomplished.

The film showed a medicine pill moving through an irreversibly sealed glass vial, which occurred in three frames of a 400 frame per second film. (source)

Another release (about Zhang) from the CIA (Research Into Paranormal Ability To Break Through Spatial Barriers) states:

A wooden cabinet 120 by 180 by 60 centimeters was used as a sealed container. Sheets of papers and boards with one  of a kind markings were used as the target objects and placed inside the cabinet on the upper shelf. Without damaging the cabinet or opening the door, the person with ESP was able to remove the target objets and also was able to put them back inside. This demonstrates that even when using especially large container it is possible to completely break through spacial barriers, however, the success rate was much lower and was exceptionally difficult. (Source)(source)

The CIA document linked above provides more examples.

According to Eric Davis, Ph.D, FBIS, from a declassified US Air Force document obtained via the Federation of American Scientists, Shuhuang reported that ‘gifted children’ were responsible for the teleportation of small, physical objects from one place to another. (source)

A study published in the American Journal of Chinese Medicine, as seen in the the US National Library of Medicine, demonstrated that a woman with special abilities was able to accelerate the germination of specific seeds for the purposes of developing a more robust seed stock.  You can read that here.

There are many fascinating examples within the lore of parapsychology.

Many of these results are just as strong, if not stronger, than a lot of the results that come from hard sciences like physics and mechanical engineering. As far back as 1999, the head of the statistics department at UC Irvine, Jessica Utts, published a paper showing that results dealing with parapsychology and mind-body connection are a lot stronger than the results used to approve some of our medications!

The Takeaway

The idea that mind influences matter is not new. From a hardcore scientific perspective, the results may be questionable, but we have to transcend science as its current parameters have become some sort of religion, failing to take into account many factors. A lot of science today has been dominated and taken over by the corporate world. The politicization of science is a real thing, and new science has confirmed the metaphysical world and is breaking down current and old paradigms. Everything from the mind-body connection to quantum physics and parapsychology are showing us how much more we have to learn about ourselves and what we are capable of.

Thing about the implications this could have for our planet? Imagine if billions of people all over the world found peace within themselves, what type of world would we create?

Do We ‘Exist’ Before We Are Born? A Woman Who Remembers Shares Her Story

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Susan Manewich shares her memories of her SELF before birth, as well as her memory of incarnating into her mothers womb, what it was like and how she felt.

  • Reflect On:

    Is it possible that we are conscious, in another form, prior to birth? Who are we beyond the mind and body?

Does life exist before birth? This is a question that’s been contemplated for thousands of years. In the Socratic dialogue, Meno by Plato, the character Socrates attempts to prove that life exists before birth. Instead of innate knowledge that we are simply born with, knowledge that simply comes naturally to us, Plato relies on prenatal knowledge to explain our ability to solve problems in mathematics and philosophy, and suggests that we must have known the answers to these problems all along.

Plato, among many others, was convinced that there were such things as absolute beauty and truths. He believed that what we call the ‘soul’ was eternal, and that all knowledge was simply a form of remembering things that our soul knew before birth. To explain his view, he wrote the parable of the cave, where people are sitting around a fire watching shadows of the outside manifest themselves on the wall of the cave. For their entire life, they watched these reflections, and to them, it was a representation of the real world. One day they ventured out of the cave, and the real world was finally revealed to them.

Today, this is happening on multiple levels, so much so that the truth is so ‘painful’ and unbelievable that many prefer to venture back into the cave of ignorance.

Plato believed that, before birth, the soul possesses knowledge, but that knowledge is lost when we enter into the world at birth. Our senses cloud the remembrance of real truths as we enter into the world of illusion and eventually become slaves to our senses. Perhaps this is why many spiritual practices like Buddhism and several yogic philosophies preach the abstinence of sensorial pleasure to an extent, because the more we engage in our senses, the further we drift away from the knowledge of our soul.

This is very interesting because the idea of the soul being an eternal entity is nothing new. Take reincarnation, for example, which is the idea that we experience many different lives not only on our own planet and dimensions, but other ones as well. The topic and research that’s gone into reincarnation is extremely fascinating to say the least, so much so that Carl Sagan stated that reincarnation deserves “serious study” because “young children sometimes report details of a previous life, which upon checking turn out to be accurate and which they could not have known about in any other way other than reincarnation.” (source)

There’s Research To Support It

Now, this does not mean that reincarnation is the be all and end all of the soul’s journey and experience, it might be one option out of several possibilities depending on its purposes, lessons it needs to learn, etc. The University of Virginia’s psychiatrist Jim Tucker is arguably the world’s leading researcher on this topic, and in 2008, he published a review of cases that suggested the existence of reincarnation in the journal Explore.

It makes sense, at least to me, that children are more likely to experience this type of memory recollection because they’re younger in age. So, perhaps they’re able to remember what happened to them prior to being born, before the soul loses its memory after being entering into a human body.

Here’s an article I wrote on multiple children providing details and proof of their past lives here on Earth. Here’s another one of a boy who remembered his past life on Mars. The Mars case is of particular interest, given that Mars was once very much Earth-like and there is evidence that an advanced civilization existed there in the past. You can see my post here and read the study that’s cited. You can also learn more about Mars and its supposed past here.

So, if we have experienced past lives before we were born, did we come here for a reason? Did our souls choose to come here? Are we all here for some sort of specific purpose? Are we here to remember why we came? Is it possible that the soul may forget why it came and goes to sleep, but can also ‘wake up’ and remember why it’s here?

Susan’s Story

Susan A. Manewich is the President of the New Energy Movement and is also a contactee, which is a person who’s been contacted by what we perceive as extraterrestrial life. She has been involved in some of the most extensive research on contactees ever conducted.

We recently interviewed Susan about her research into The Contactee Experience. At the beginning of the interview, she touches upon how she literally remembers incarnating onto this planet and being in her mother’s womb, which signifies her knowledge that she came from somewhere else. This is fascinating as it begs some interesting questions: If her memories are in fact correct, what does this say about who we truly are, and about what we think we know about our reality and our consciousness?

“Literally remember coming from a different space and place… I didn’t lose that consciousness, I remember that… I remember, literally, hearing the call, that I needed to leave where I was, which was in energy form, and I do remember being connected to source, and literally being really excited to come too. I didn’t know it was this planet, let’s just put it this way: it was a call, it was a pull… I do remember the journey of coming through, I remember being energy in the corner of my parents’ bedroom and literally the next thing I know, my next conscious memory is being in my mothers womb probably about 7 mothers or so in Utero.”

We interviewed her for a 3-part series that goes deeper into the topic of contactees, both in regards to beings and ET’s, as well as her work on bringing forth new energy technologies.

The Contactee Experience, which is the first part in the series, is currently available for free for you to watch on demand. You can start watching it here.

In our Hidden Energy Technologies interview with Susan, we explore how she has been vetting free energy technologies for many years now, and has some of the most extensive knowledge out there on these subjects. In our interview with her, we explore these technologies, what’s real and what’s not, and what it will take to actually have these technologies hit the light of day… and it’s not simply by ending the Deep State’s suppression of them.

In the final part, Contactees and The Shift, Susan shares some of the most important and understandable messages regarding contactees. We also get into the most commonly shared messages contactees report, as they relate to the massive global shift in consciousness we are experiencing on the planet today.

As we discuss in the interview series, it’s important to keep in mind that there are multiple forms of contact: there are abductions, which you can read more about here, energetic contact experiences, contact with extraterrestrials, and contact with other types of beings.

If you would like to watch this interview series and learn a lot more about the latest contactee and free energy technology research, start by watching part 1 here.

As backed up by research, most contactees who have been hypnotically regressed, as well as those who haven’t, share shockingly similar stories in their experiences. Dr. David M Jacobs, a recently retired Professor and historian, has stated that the “consistency is mind-boggling.”

It’s not uncommon for ‘ET contactees’ or those who have been regressed to share information that suggests life exists prior to birth. The reason for a lot of the UFO/ET activity we see here today could be directly correlated with the idea that these people have come here for a specific purpose. This is a common feeling among activists and those who have experienced ET/UFO contact, at least a good portion of them.

The Takeaway

Contemplating reincarnation and the existence of life prior to birth is nothing new, as proven by generations of children who remembered their past lives as well as ancient lore and philosophy from around the globe. The information shared within this article isn’t ‘proof’ according to the way our minds have been trained to recognize what ‘proof’ is; instead, it’s something that seems to resonate deeply with many people. Couple that with the extreme consistency between the stories shared by not only children, but by people like Susan as well, the reincarnation theory seems incredibly plausible. Plus, if you look at the work of multiple hypnotic regressionists who’ve worked with people that have experienced ‘extraterrestrial’ contact, it’s definitely interesting to say the least.

Furthermore, if we examine scientific literature associated with parapsychology, quantum physics and consciousness (all related), the idea that consciousness or the soul exists as a separate entity from the body is really not that far off, although consciousness is, in my opinion, something different from the soul.

Consciousness

Supermoon In Libra: Relationship Adjustments

Published

on

We are having a Full Moon in Libra on March 20th-21st depending on where you are located in the world. This is the peak of the Lunar cycle that began on March 6 with a New Moon in Pisces. It will also be the last of three back to back Supermoons happening in 2019, which is when the Moon appears larger and brighter due to its closer proximity to the Earth. The previous one in February was the brightest of the three.

This Full Moon coincides with the Equinox, which is the beginning of Aries season (via the Tropical Zodiac) and is the first of 12 signs. Traditionally, some cultures observe this period as the beginning of a New Year, which makes much more cosmological sense than the calendar New Year. Even this transition from dreamy and floaty Pisces to active and direct Aries tends to be the most obvious and noticeable transition between signs.

During this Full Moon, we can experience either a push-pull or collaboration between the Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra. The energies of it gradually build up and become more noticeable on the day of and days surrounding it. It is also part of the backdrop of the other astrological influences/reflections over the following two weeks.

Aries and Libra are two out of the four Cardinal signs which are the first signs of each quarter of the zodiac. They all have an initiating quality in their own way. Aries is a fire sign ruled by Mars. It is about action, moving forward, pioneering, independence, self-identity, self-orientation, and leadership. It is bold, courageous, and instinctual, yet it can also be aggressive, impulsive, impatient, selfish, and hot tempered.

Libra is an Air sign ruled by Venus. It is about relating, relationships, partnerships, codependency, consideration, harmony, balance, fairness, art, creativity, and beauty. It is sociable, diplomatic, and intellectual, yet it can also be indecisive, passive aggressive, vain, and even judgemental. Although Aries is much more of an initiating sign in comparison to Libra due to the qualities mentioned above, Libra still expresses its Cardinal energy socially and towards consideration.

An interesting thing to mention is that this Full Moon happens right at the beginning of Libra at 0 degrees due to it occurring  on the Equinox. This degree tends to be more potent and sometimes can reflect exploring new experiences or actions connected to that sign.

Full Moon Opposite Sun/Chiron Conjunction, Quincunx Uranus

The Sun is aligned with Chiron, which brings its themes into the opposition of this Full Moon. This could trigger wounds, blockages, and patterns connected to self-identity, independence, willpower, ego, or other Aries themes mentioned in the section above. It can also reflect potential healing, bridging or uniting two parts of something, holistic awareness, and combined with the current Mercury Retrograde in Pisces it could also have a spiritual tone. This can be a source of either potential challenges and/or growth around relationships at this time.

The Full Moon is in a quincunx with Uranus in Taurus, which could reflect changes, surprises, disruptions, new experiences, rebellion, or other curve balls being thrown at us that may require some adjustments. In many cases it will be connected to the themes of the Aries-Libra opposition mentioned and can play out in our relationship dynamics, but it can also manifest in other ways. In Taurus it could have something to do with money, possessions, or values.

Venus Square Mars and Sextile Jupiter, Mars Trine Pluto

Venus, the ruler of Libra, is in Aquarius while in a tight square with Mars in Taurus, which is the ruler of Aries. This aspect emphasizes the potential challenges of this Full Moon. The way we or others assert our personal wants, values, or resources can be at odds with social or romantic aspects of our lives. However, this aspect can also be supportive creatively or sexually, especially considering that Venus is also in a harmonious aspect with Jupiter.

Venus in a sextile with Jupiter in Sagittarius can reflect growth, learning, and overall expansiveness in different types of relationships. In some cases it can be connected to travel/foreign countries, social media, education, and beliefs. However, the developments that could occur might require adjustments in how we assert ourselves.

Mars is in a trine with Pluto, which can be good for actions that are focused, deep, and powerful. It can also be good for applying ourselves in a confident or empowering way and towards making positive changes.

Mercury Retrograde Moving Towards Neptune Before Going Direct

Mercury has been retrograde in Pisces since March 5th, a day before this Lunar cycle started. This retrograde extends the strong Piscean energy into most of Aries season. The actual retrograde ends on March 28th; however, the following days can still feel retrograde-ish. The few weeks following are known as the ‘post shadow,’ which is when its themes conclude and things start to fall into place more smoothly and productively.

While Mercury is transitioning from retrograde to direct, it will be aligned with Neptune. Our intuition can be heightened and we can be divinely inspired. Our thoughts and communications can be revolved around spirituality, compassion, empathy, and sacrifice. This can be a period of magical experiences or interactions with others. However, this can be challenging for rational and linear thinking. We can overlook mundane details easily and can also be confused. You can read more about this retrograde here.

Things To Consider During This Period

What recurring themes have been coming up for you in recent weeks, and what directions are your circumstances pushing you towards? How can you balance your individual needs with your relationship’s needs? Do you or others in your life have any wounds or blockages getting in the way? If so, what can you do to resolve or address the situation?

These are just some examples of themes that could come up during this period; however, there may be other variations of this energy playing out as well.  If you wish to do any sort of intentional release connected to what has come up at this Full Moon, it is best to do so anytime over the two weeks following, when it is waning. The exact moment of this Full Moon is on the night of March 20th/21st at 1:43am Universal Time. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.
