Praying Medic: Recent Qanon Posts (videos + article)

This is a compilation of recent Praying Medic QAnon analysis videos, with one written article (see comments).  I like the way he calmly explains what is transpiring both behind the scenes and right in front of us, and why appearances don’t always tell the whole story, which is often an important story that the MSM ignores. He connects the geopolitical dots and reassures us that due to the unprecedented scale of corruption by a few in high positions, and the wide scope of the investigations, it takes time to bring criminals to justice. But Barr, Horowitz, Durham and their teams are diligently doing just that. Meanwhile, Q drops clues and the Anons research and come up with answers that Q later verifies or redirects. This is why Patriots know in advance of the public what to expect. If you are paying attention, nothing will catch you by surprise or anger you, except when you realize you’ve been duped. Not by Q, but by the very leaders, institutions and complicit media outlets you’ve trusted for a long time. (Have you even noticed the volumes of arrests and resignations of CEOs and top officials? Many related to financial crimes or pedophilia?) We knew it was coming. It is an astounding amount of information to assimilate and track. That’s why I prefer to rely on a few people who can break it down for us in a clear manner that documents the events without sensationalizing them, since transparency is woefully lacking in our government and soundbite, biased media. This allows you to choose how much detail you are interested in. “The choice to know will be yours.” -Q #TheGreatAwakening  #EnjoyTheShow🍿

Selacia: Turn Anger into Positive Social Change – How to Productively Respond to Craziness –



– How to Productively Respond to Craziness  –

If you are like most of us, you feel a combination of anger and discouragement about the state of our world in 2020. Indeed, things have gotten crazier, more explosive, more petty, and more unsettling. What’s unfolding now is a magnified version of what we experienced in the last part of 2019. Division, polarity, and hateful exchanges seem like they are at an all-time high. For us sensitives, this can feel brutal. Continue reading to know how to productively respond to this craziness.

A Metaphor for Where We Are

Here’s a metaphor to illustrate where we are as a human society.

Imagine tigers and all other animals – including deer and wild pigs – locked up together in a zoo that has no barrier walls between types of animals. Each type of animal instinctively does one of two things: find a safe hiding place or attack edible prey.

We humans have both an instinctive fear-based nature and a divine loving nature. The loving one, as a reminder, is our true nature.

All of us live together on a self-contained planet that is our only home. We are interconnected 24/7 with one another. Yes, there are some artificial borders, but borders do not create peace. Our warrior-like instinctive nature for millennia has facilitated endless wars and a sense of artificial division between “us and them”.
There is no “them.” We are “us”  – one human family.

To change this dynamic is an inside job, within each one of us at a heart level. Our hearts can remind us daily of both our predicament and timely solutions for addressing things on a quantum level with love.

The first step right now is to acknowledge what I’ve described here. Don’t take it personally. We’re all in this together. There are no enemies. There is no reason for revenge.

Next I’ll outline some simple practical things to know and do in response to craziness.

How to Productively Respond to Craziness

Know that it’s okay to feel outrage when you witness our world falling apart and leaders devolving into fear-based antics. However, remember that what’s unfolding now is part of a divine plan to shift our dysfunctional world into one based on love. Come back to this reminder daily for greater inner peace. And remember that you as a divine changemaker play an integral role by how you live your life and respond to the outer world. Learn more about your upgraded role for 2020 and much more in my new Predictions 2020 ebook – out soon!

I suggest that we need even more meditation, inner work, time-outs, and a sense of play to navigate this difficult juncture. We must remind ourselves that we are here for the long haul. It’s really not about 2020 or the next decade, though this time is pivotal. What we want to factor in is the long journey of our soul over time to prepare us for this apex moment. We came resourced beyond what you can imagine! And we have lots to contribute. To play our role effectively we must regularly get resourced on an inner level and remind ourselves why we’re here now.

Don’t make this about individuals – whether it’s national leaders, would-be leaders seeking to be in charge, or greedy billionaires with no concern for everyday people or the planet. The real things to focus on are ISSUES. These involve themes like human rights and the health and well-being of all citizens. I go into these more in my forthcoming book, giving you a grounded spiritual view of the underlying issues we’ve had with us for countless generations. Unless and until we find ways to come together, we cannot begin to resolve these longstanding issues preventing a loving world.
Avoid being like the caged animals in a zoo, allowing their instinctive fear to unleash a tribal fight or flight response. We are seeing this response now in multiple ways: disengaging from public discourse, losing interest in what happens next, and allowing weariness of craziness to block productive action. We are better than this. Do your best to remain engaged, stay informed, and fully participate in our society. Your voice, consciousness, and actions matter. If there’s an election in your country, be sure to vote. Do this even if you dislike all the candidates. Do this even if your ego-mind convinces you that your vote doesn’t matter. It does matter.
Remember the bigger picture of what’s happening now.When you notice things are toxic in our outer world, do your best to connect with compassion for all beings including yourself. All of us are here purposely now – and there’s a higher reason for the craziness. As humanity awakens more in the 2020s, the truth of many things will come to light. During this process, do your best to avoid judgment and seek a higher view of what happenstance actually means. Trust that within your own heart are the answers you seek.

Archangel Gabriel and Creative Solutions By Lana Walker | Shanta Gabriel

Chakra 2

Allowing the Stuff of Miracles!

When you find Unity within, a deep soul alignment opens your receptivity to Creative Solutions. No matter how dire the situation appears, new life lies in wait. Know that there are fertile seeds being planted in your energy system with your commitment, your prayers and intentions for a resourceful life.

Archangel Gabriel is the masterful being of Light who demonstrates those surprisingly Creative Solutions for all humanity. Gabriel found his way into the major holy books over the centuries. Archangel Gabriel whispered surprising news to Mary about the birth of Jesus. He inspired Mohammed with the way to Peace in the world. And less well known, Archangel Gabriel parted the Red Sea for Moses so the Jewish slaves could escape Egypt.

All of these unifying deeds empowered powerful change in the world and opportunities for unification, peace and support. The discordant direction that humanity has taken in response merely demonstrates the free will God offered to the world. These miraculous interventions were opportunities to leave behind divisiveness and discord, so Peace could prevail in the world, no matter how they have been perceived.

The second chakra, the Sacral Center, or Svadhisthana in Sanskrit, is our feeling, receiving and creative center. It is located just below your navel and encourages a sense of Alignment within the core of your being. This Alignment creates a bridge between Heaven and Earth, allowing you to access your Highest Soul’s Wisdom as well as the nourishment and connection of the Earth.


In this center, you are bringing into alignment the polarities you see around you, allowing you to bring forth Creative Solutions that defy logic. In a polarized world, there appears to be many options, most out of harmony with Peace. But in a Creative Solution, the disparity is replaced with new opportunities. When polarities are unified, consciousness is lifted, and high-vibration solutions become prevalent in your field of expanding perceptions. It is as if a new color revealed itself in the painting of your life. We see black and white, but what if there is a third option?

When Creative Solutions abound, it is the stuff of miracles. Suddenly your life unfolds in a new direction, offering a path that allows you to serve in greater ways in the world. Connection to your second chakra brings you into a place of balance. As Unity Consciousness enters your field, there is greater Peace within you and a new sense of Harmony. When the fire of Creativity activates in your sacral chakra, you become a catalyst for the life of your dreams.

Allowing the Grace of the angels to work with you in daily life provides powerful support for navigating the new Earth energies. May you be blessed with miracles.

The Astrology February 26 to March 8th

It has always been my intention to be a week or two ahead in my forecasts for the very reason I didn’t get to creating one last week for this week. Life got in the way this last week and I couldn’t create anything. Thank you for being understanding as I worked through the loss of my father and the new responsibilities I now have to take on for my mother and the household. One is never ready to lose a parent even though it best for them.

The video forecast will be up within a day of this posting.

So let’s get started with Tuesday February 25th in the afternoon; when the Moon enters Aries we feel a significant shift from the watery emotional “Void of Course” Moon in Pisces to the action oriented Aries Moon. She will be in this assertive and direct sign for 2 ½ days until February 28th at 2:30 am EST.  The reason why am I focusing on the moon in Aries is because whenever she is in this sign she makes a square aspect to all the planets currently in Capricorn.

Let’s start with Mars; Wednesday the 26th early in the morning the Moon will square Mars first, we will wake today feeling driven and determined to get things done but first we have some kind of hurtle to get over. The square aspects will do this, it is like they make us work for it and with Mars involved in his exaltation we can get a lot done today if we are set up for it.

Moving on to Thursday the 27th in the middle of the night the Moon will square Jupiter in Capricorn, this one’s not so harsh has Moon square Mars. Here I believe we can wake ready to go with fresh thoughts and ideas that may have even come from our dreams. So if you feel motivated to do something first thing in the morning don’t hesitate.

Also on the 27th the Moon will square Pluto at 2:27 pm EST and Saturn at 10:25 pm EST. This once a month transit pushes us too be assertive and take steps towards what it is we need as individuals, it’s like standing up for yourself something a lot of people don’t always do. So as the Moon makes this square to Jupiter, Pluto and then Saturn throughout the 27th be yourself – speak up for what it is that you need and require in any area of life.

The Moon will also make a conjunction to Venus in Aries just after noon time EST so we’re really able to see what we believe in and really engage that strong warrior within if it’s necessary in your current life circumstance.

Friday February 28th the moon enters Taurus in the middle of the night and she will make a conjunction to Uranus 9:50 AM ET. Throughout Friday and Saturday and half of Sunday while the moon is in her exaltation “Taurus” we are focusing in on what we love and value. What’s important for us.

Friday 5:08 PM EST Venus squares Pluto. I see this as the feminine within us either submitting to the powers that be or we are taking back our power and control. It could be a little bit of a struggle but one well worth it if this shows up in your life.

Sunday March 1st 2:21 PM EST the Moon enters Gemini and will remain in that sign until Tuesday night March 3rd just before midnight. So over these 2 1/2 days Sunday afternoon till Tuesday night Moon in Gemini is asking us to get behind what it is that we want to say, emotionally get behind how it is we want to communicate and share the information that is important to us. Whenever the moon is in Gemini there is a lot of conversation going on, sometimes it’s too much information.

March 3rd is also Super Tuesday  here in the United States that means a lot of states will be voting in the presential primaries. The news coverage will be over whelming as we watch the voting results come in. The ruler of Gemini is Mercury and he is retrograde and currently at the first degrees of Pisces getting ready to reverse back into Aquarius on Wednesday the 4th. Whenever a planet is at the first and final degree of a sign we feel a sense of urgency. In this case it could be confusion since it is Pisces.

Venus is also making a square aspect to Saturn on March 3rd I find that is quite interesting in a sense that a lot of women (Women = Venus) are voting and taking (action = Aries) rising up against the old patriarch (Saturn in Capricorn). I’m trying not to get too political because that’s not my Forte but I can see that with all the action the Capricorn planets are receiving we are trying to break away from the old patriarchal system with this election but it might not happen yet. One step at a time my friends, and please don’t political bash me, this is simply how I see it.

Wednesday March 4th Mercury reverses back into Aquarius for the next couple weeks and even though Mercury is retrograde in this time period hopefully you can use it to its fullest by renewing or becoming rejuvenated around an old idea or project that has stalled.  I just love Aquarius brain storming ideas so give yourself some space to make that happen.

Also on Wednesday March 4th Venus enters her ruling sign of Taurus for the next 4 weeks, this is fantastic! We have an opportunity to reconnect with what we really truly value and adore. Look for the Taurus section in your own Natal chart to get a more detailed subject matter. The keywords for that sector called a house will tell you more. If you need personal input that’s my job, I would be happy to help you out, use the BOOKEDIN app on my website to make your own appointment.

Early in the morning Friday March 6th the Moon enters Leo and will remain in that sign till Sunday morning. Use the creative fire energy of the Moon in Leo Friday and Saturday for self-expression to show the world what you love and what you are passionate about. We are also coming to the full moon in a couple of days and Mercury is slowing down at this point in time soon to go direct. These transits and the lunar phase feel like a build up of energy with no place to go. Will we feel stressed, frustrated, I recommend you do your best to stay in a creative place without thinking too hard or trying to push against the things that are not working; just for now.

Sunday March 8th the moon will enter the sign of Virgo early in the morning and it will remain in that sign for a couple days and it will be full in Virgo on Monday afternoon. The Virgo Full Moon is associated with focusing in on the details that matter. Sifting and sorting through what we need and what we don’t need. I’ll talk about the full moon in Virgo in my next forecast which will include the station of Mercury.

Until next time, may the stars always shine in your favor.


Decree of Protection v2 | Surface Command

FM144 mentioned this in a thread comment on his blog. Protection protocols seem like an especially good idea these days, IMHO. ~PB

February 4, 2020

Decree of Protection v2 | Surface Command

Please use this updated version of our “Decree of Protection” when necessary. We are observing the situation and, when necessary, making upgrades and adjustments to our Protection Protocols.
You can print this Decree, write it on a piece of paper, or copy and paste it into a notepad-like application on your smartphone, where you can easily find it when you need Protection or when you think that you are being energetically targeted.
If you were using our previous version, we highly recommend to use this new version, you will “feel” the difference, 😉
I [say your name] close my Energy-Bodies on All Planes and All Dimensions to the Black Nobility, to the Rogue-Aspects of Fallen-Angels, to the Chimera and the Spider-like Beings, to the Archons, to the Dark Reptilians, to the Dark Draconians and to any Dark-Being, Dark-Energy, Dark-Thought and any Negative-Technology directed at me in Zero-Point Now and Forever.
In the name of my Divine-Presence, I ask to be cloaked against unwelcome Negative-Approachings, Negative-Attacks, and Negative-Threats according to the Decree given by Primary-Source.
I form a Mirror-Shield now around me which transmute into the Violet-Flame any and all Dark-Intentions directed to me and I send back the Pure-Violet-Flame and the White-Fire of AN to the source of the attack at a hundred plus times the intensity directed at me.
This Decree is valid in Zero Point from Now on and Forever, in all Planes, all Dimensions, and all Timelines.
So BE IT and so IT IS.

Anna Merkaba: Galactic Update – A Star is Born – Major Impact on Earthlings – Pleiades

Galactic Update – A Star is Born – Major Impact on Earthlings – Pleiades


Greetings My Beloved Masters of the Universe. I have just received this interesting message from the Pleiadians.

“Mere moments ago in a distant galaxy located at 36 degrees south from your central sun a major event has taken place, a star was born which shone the light upon the entire galaxy, said light has a transference point of 0.087 degrees Celsius and the circumference of said star is 123,000 miles. A small star with enormous photon energetic proportions.

Why is said stars birth important for your galaxy and all of humanity? The reason is that said star brings with it the beginning of the escalades, escalades into a different geotheorization (a theory about earth’s origins and it’s construct) on a global scale of your world.

Through said star’s light much negativity bound in your heavens can be transported into the center of your galaxy and transmuted into the light which shall then be returned to earth as pure unadulterated energy source from which your vehicles of time and space shall be able to draw upon in order to sustain your world.

And so, said stars pulse is vibrating at the frequency of your planet’s twin star. The energy from said star travels fast, much faster than the speed of light, in fact in consideration with the technologies that exist outside of your planetary system, the transference of energies is instantaneous, and reaches the desired point without delay announcing a new energetic upliftment.

And so, the event that has already occurred has been felt by all on your planet as a massive jolt, a jolt to change something in your lives. And from said jolt every single one on your planet has changed something in their lives in the last few days, be it large or small, the change has impacted each of your lives in a meaningful way which shall make itself known in the next three months of your earthly time. Depending on the nature of said change, each ones lives shall proceed to unfold in said direction.

Nevertheless, in a few of your earthly months, there shall be a gateway that shall allow many of you to cognizantly choose your paths on this planet for the next 50 of your earthly years, and begin to bring through the innovations that your planet is dearly in need of in order to bring about the changes that are destined to occur not only on your planet but throughout your entire universe.

That is all that we have for you now. We love you. We are with you. Goodbye for now.”

Cobra: Urgent Meditation to Stop the Coronavirus Outbreak in Italy | The Portal

The Importance of Dancing Like an Idiot | The Book of Life,

Chapter 6.Leisure: Small Pleasure                                                                                      What is The Book of Life?

The Importance of Dancing Like an Idiot

One of the strangest but also most intriguing and redemptive things that humans get up to, in almost any culture one cares to study, is occasionally to gather in large groups, bathe in the rhythmic sounds of drums and flutes, organs and guitars, chants and cries, and move their arms and legs about in complicated and frenzied ways, losing themselves in the bewilderment of a dance. Dancing has a claim to be considered among the most essential and salutary activities we ever partake in. Not for nothing did Nietzsche, a painfully inhibited figure in day to day life, declare ‘I would believe only in a God who could dance’ (a comment that stands beside his equally apodictic pronouncement: ‘Without music, life would be a mistake.’)

But dancing is at the same time an activity that many of us, arguably those of us who might most need to do it, are powerfully inclined to resist and deep down to fear. We stand on the side of the dance floor appalled at the possibility of being called to join in, we attempt to make our excuses the moment the music begins, we take pains that no one will ever, ever see our hips unite with a beat.

The point here is definitely not to learn to dance like an expert, it is to remember that dancing badly is something we might actually want to do and, equally importantly, something that we already well know how to do to – at least to the level of appalling proficiency we need to possess in order to derive key benefits.

In almost all cultures and at all points of history (except oddly enough perhaps our own), dancing has been widely and publically understood as a form of bodily exercise with something very important to contribute to our mental state. Dancing has had nothing to do with dancing well, being young or revealing one’s stylishness. Summed up sharply we might put it like this: dancing has been valued for allowing us to transcend our individuality and for inducing us to merge into a larger, more welcoming and more redemptive whole.

The Ancient Greeks were for the most part committed worshippers of the rational mind. Their foremost God, Apollo, was the embodiment of cool reason and disciplined wisdom. However, the Greeks understood – with  prescience – that a life devoted only to the serenity of the mind could be at grave risk of desiccation and loneliness. And so they balanced their concern with Apollo with regular festivals in honour of a quite different God, Dionysus, a god that drank wine, stayed up late, loved music – and danced.

A break from individualism and reason: Dionysius (also known as Bacchus to the Greeks and Romans) leading a dance. Bouguereau, The Youth of Bacchus, 1884

The Greeks knew that the more rational we usually are, the more important it is – at points – to fling ourselves around to the wild rhythms of pipes and drums. At the festivals of Dionysius, held in Athens in March every year, even the most venerable and dignified members of the community would join into unrestrained dancing that, irrigated by generous amounts of red wine, lasted until dawn.

A word often used to describe such dancing is ‘ecstatic’. It’s a telling term. Ecstatic comes from two Latin words: ex (meaning apart) and stasis (meaning standing) – indicating a state in which we are symbolically ‘standing apart’ from ourselves – separated from the dense, detailed and self-centered layers of our identities which we normally focus on and obsess over and reconnected with something more primal and more necessary: our common human nature. We remember, through a period of ecstatic dancing, what it is like to belong, to be part of something larger than ourselves, to be indifferent to our own egos – to be reunited with humanity.

This aspiration hasn’t entirely disappeared in modernity – but it’s been assigned to very particular and woefully selective ambassadors: the disco and the rave. These associations point us in unhelpful directions: towards being cool, a certain age, wearing particular clothes, liking a certain kind of often rather arduous music. Such markers of an elite, knowing crowd reinforce, rather than dismantle, our tendencies towards isolation and loneliness.

We need, urgently, to recover a sense of the universal benefit and impact of dancing. But the greatest enemy of this is fear, and in particular, the fear – as we may put it – that we will look ‘like an idiot’ in front of people whose opinion might matter. The way through this is not to be told that we will in fact appear really rather fine and, with a bit of effort, very far from idiotic. Quite the opposite; we should accept with good grace that the whole point of redemptive, consoling, cathartic communal dancing is a chance to look like total, thoroughgoing idiots, the bigger the better, in the company of hundreds of other equally and generously publicly idiotic fellow humans.

We spend a good deal of our time fearing – as if it were a momentous calamity that we did not even dare contemplate in daylight – that we might be idiots and holding back from a host of important aspirations and ambitions as a result. We should shake ourselves from such inhibitions by loosening our hold on any remaining sense of dignity and by accepting frankly that we are –  by nature – of course completely idiotic, great sacks of foolishness that cry in the night, bump into doors, fart in the bath and kiss people’s noses by mistake – but that far form being shameful and isolating, this idiocy is in fact a basic feature of our nature that unites us immediately with everyone else on the planet. We are idiots now, we were idiots then, and we will be idiots again in the future. There is no other option for a human to be.

Dancing provides us with a primordial occasion on which this basic idiocy can be publicly displayed and communally celebrated. On a dance floor filled with comparable idiots, we can at last delight in our joint foolishness; we can throw off our customary shyness and reserve and fully embrace our dazzling strangeness and derangement. An hour of frantic jigging should decisively shake us from any enduring belief in our normalcy or seriousness. We will no longer be able to bully others, persuade them of our superiority, humiliate them for their mistakes or pontificate at length on weighty matters. We will no longer worry how others see us or regret a few things we said to intimidating strangers. The gentle aches in our limbs and our memories of our moves will remind us of anchoring facts that will guarantee our ongoing sanity and kindness.

Whenever we have the chance to invite others around, especially very serious people by whom we’re intimidated or whom we might be seeking to impress, we should remember the divine Dionysus and dare, with his wisdom in mind, to put on Dancing Queen, I’m so excited or We are Family. Knowing that we have Nietzsche on side, we should let rip with a playlist that includes What a Feeling, Dance with Somebody and Hey Jude. We should lose command of our normal rational pilot selves, abandon our arms to the harmonies, throw away our belief in a ‘right’ way to dance or indeed to live, build the intensity of our movements to a frenzy, gyrate our heads to empty them of their absurd worries, forget our jobs, qualifications, status, achievements, plans, hopes and fears – and merge with the universe or at least its more immediate representatives, our fellow new mad friends, before whom the disclosure of idiocy will be total.

Looking like an idiot shouldn’t be a risk: it’s the point.

Around us might be a formally shy accountant, an efficient dental nurse or a white haired school principal bending and flinging their arms in the air, throwing their heads back, contorting their bodies. After a few songs, something astonishing will begin to happen: it won’t matter any more that we said a slightly out of place thing in a meeting two weeks ago, that we haven’t yet met the love of our lives or that we still don’t understand very much at all. We will feel a part of something far more important than ourselves, a supportive community in which our individual errors and doubts will cease to weigh so heavily and punishingly upon us.

Through a dance, we glimpse a huge project: how we might more regularly experience ourselves as vulnerable in front of other people in order to become better friends to ourselves and more generous and compassionate companions to others. The true potential of dancing has for too long been abandoned by thoughtful people to stylish ambassadors who have forgotten the elemental seriousness of allowing themselves to be and look idiotic. We should reclaim the ecstatic dance and uninhibited boogie woogie for their deepest universal purposes: to reconnect, reassure and reunite us.
