COVID VACCINE – A ‘CLEVER TRICK’?

TO MAKE INFORMED DECISIONS WE MUST BE INFORMED

The new mRNA vaccines have been described as ‘a way of tricking the immune system’ by delivering lipid nanoparticles, fatty molecular envelopes, as a  mechanism to help strands of mRNA evade the body’s biological gatekeepers. Paula Cannon, an associate professor of microbiology at the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine commented:  “The immune system is incredibly complicated and it’s different from person to person… “There’s always a concern when you are trying to trick the immune system — which is what a vaccine does — that you could have unintended side effects,”

19-year-old Simone Scott received her second dose of the Moderna vaccine on May 1st.  Within hours she became ill and was hospitalised, developing  what her doctors believe was myocarditis, a rare inflammation of the heart muscle. Simone underwent a heart transplant one month later and died on May 11th.

Justin Harrington, a 21-year-old New Jersey student, suffered severe heart inflammation within 8 to 12 hours of receiving his second dose of Moderna’s COVID vaccine. Justin’s  school required him to get the vaccine in order to attend classes in the fall. Justin’s father, Timothy Harrington, said his son felt different after the second shot. “Every time his heart beat it hurt and he felt pressure,.. “Then he developed heart pain down both arms.” Two days after Justin received the second shot, his father took him to the emergency room at Morristown Memorial Hospital because the symptoms had worsened. “The physicians weren’t connecting it to the vaccine until I informed the doctors my son just got the vaccine, and shared with them the information I had found on myocarditis,” Justin now has minor scarring on his heart and Harrington said even though his son has been released, he still has chest pain and his life is not the same. “He has to wear a heart monitor and take four different medications for six months…He has to sleep propped up, can’t exert himself so is unable to work.” Doctors hope they caught it early enough that there will be no other issues but this is uncertain.

  • On June 2, the Israeli Health Minister said that a  “probable” link  had been found between Pfizer’s COVID vaccine and rare cases of heart inflammation in young men . Israeli health officials first flagged the issue in April, when they reported more than 60 cases, mostly in young men who had received their second dose of vaccine.
  • Officials at the European Medicines Agency said on May 28, they had received 107 reports of myocarditis following the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. Europe has lower rates of vaccination for young people.
  •  The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – a total of 475 cases of myocarditis or pericarditis were recorded in patients 30 and younger. CDC data showed 196 reports of myocarditis and pericarditis among 18 to 24-year-olds through May 31, compared with an expected rate of between 8 and 83 cases.

A search in the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) reveals 900 cases of pericarditis and myocarditis reported in the U.S. among all age groups following COVID vaccination, between Dec. 14, 2020 and June 4, 2021. An emergency meeting of its advisers has been called for June 18. Dr. Tom Shimabukuro, deputy director of the CDC’s Immunization Safety Office, confirmed there had been “a higher-than-expected number of cases” of heart inflammation among young people recently vaccinated with their second doses of the mRNA vaccine.

Cleveland Clinic found people previously infected with SARS-CoV-2 were less likely to be re-infected than fully vaccinated individuals who had never had the virus.Studies suggest that people who’ve already had the disease or were recently infected are more at risk of severe adverse reactions i.e. a potential risk of harm, if  vaccinated at a vulnerable time.  Since the vaccine is intended to trigger an immune response it is not unreasonable to assume that those who may already have natural immunity due to previous  or current infection might be at increased risk when vaccinated, the body triggering an exaggerated immune response with damage to organs and tissues. This is the same reaction seen in increased rates of blood clots causing stroke and heart attack in a minority of those vaccinated.

According to researchers at the National Organization for Rare Disorders, myocarditis can result from infections but “more commonly the myocarditis is a result of the body’s immune reaction to the initial heart damage.”  The link between myocarditis currently under investigation is as yet unproven, we must hope that the vaccine itself does not prove to be the agent initially responsible for attacking the heart muscle, initiating an exaggerated immune response which is difficult to control. The UK Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) will be advising against pressing ahead with a vaccination campaign for teenagers.

Moderna denies any link between vaccine and heart inflammation. While acknowledging Covid risk factors, it is vital for each of us to remain alert to the conditions now being investigated as potentially vaccine linked.

ALZHEIMERS – A Teaching

DORIS IS A REMINDER  OF THE NEED TO PRIORITISE THE CARE OF A GENERATION  WHO HAVE DEMONSTRATED SERVICE TO THEIR FAMILY AND COMMUNITIES.

Like many of her generation Doris learned about resilience early in life, it imbued her with an indomitable spirit.  Born in 1923, in the north of England, her teenage years were marred by war but she met and married a Canadian soldier stationed in England. At the end of the war when the Allied forces had returned home she travelled to Canada with their nine month old daughter to begin a new life. Sadly like so many war brides of the  time her hopes were dashed when the marriage quickly ended. Doris made the long lonely journey home to England to begin, instead, life as a single mother but later remarried and a second daughter was born.  Like most people she knew Doris worked as an operative in the Lancashire cotton mills, from the age of 15 until her early forties when the cotton workers lung disease, byssinosis forced her to seek other employment.

Doris used to say the ‘When God closes a door he opens a window’ and this proved to be a crossroads of choice for her. Lacking qualifications, she applied for work at the local hospital as a cleaner,  progressing to Ward Orderly before training as an Anaesthetic nurse, a post she held for some years. Doris worked  with the prestigious pioneering team who became world famous when they announced the birth of the first ‘test tube baby,’ Louise Brown, the fore runner of today’s IVF.  At the age of 50 Doris began a three-year course in midwifery training, studied and passed her finals to become a fully qualified midwife. After several years as a staff nurse she became a ward sister on the premature Care ICU, a job she was totally dedicated to.

Following her retirement Doris remained active, enjoying holidays abroad with her husband before his passing. The family expected her to find widowhood difficult, however, she gained a new lease of life. As a gifted writer, she wrote her autobiography which was published. As the family matriarch she helped raise her grandchildren and great grandchildren and finally a great great grandchild, keeping a daily journal and recording her daily life as a doting grandma, in prose.

                                                        On the Corner

I stand on the corner each day, wet or fine, and watch for that lovely great grandson of mine. He comes down the road with a smile on his face, on his dad’s shoulders, they set quite a pace but daddy must set off again, what a race. So off we go now, my great grandson and me to my house for breakfast and Children’s TV.  Ms Mallet, short stories and Sesame Street. Then shopping around, there’s always a treat, the best is the Roundabout, his favourite ride, he goes round and round, all the cars he has tried. Now it’s home time… he gives me a kiss. Back home to mummy, he’s waited for this. So I’m off on the bus with this tired boy of mine but I’ll be on the corner each day, wet or fine.

At the age of 82, it became evident that Doris was experiencing memory problems, she was diagnosed with Alzheimers at the age of 86 and made the transition from independent living to residential care. Doris was supported by a team of dedicated holistic therapists pioneering alternative approaches to health care by the Living Memory Research Trust and was delighted to take part in a video project to increase medical and community awareness. Doris unexpectedly became the teacher providing a unique client perspective. Project workers described how she had enriched their knowledge: “She helped me to know what it felt like to lose your memory, your ability to communicate and your independence because of Alzheimer’s.”

An articulate woman, when asked  to describe what  it feels like when you can’t remember, she replied. “It’s like you remember a little bit and then it stops and then it’s like another bit of film interrupts it, then you don’t know where you are. I finish up not understanding what I am seeing. It feels like shutting off. It’s like a blankness that you can’t see through. Like a door that won’t open for you.”   She described her feelings when this happens:  “ I feel a bit helpless. I can go on struggling and struggling with it but if you let go of it, sit down, have a cup of tea and let 15 minutes pass, then it’s gone and I’m back to normal again.”   Her advice was: “Leave me to struggle at the beginning with it and that will help me pull my brain together. Don’t you say anything until I ask you. The condition gets bigger and bigger if someone interrupts you. “ Asked what she found most difficult she said: “The only thing that agitates me with people is that they don’t take any notice of what you’re saying or they look like they don’t believe what you’re saying, as though you are romancing or something. Then it makes me shut up because it’s embarrassing. “

Doris eagerly participated in a series of videos as part of a therapist training programme, ignoring the camera and expressing herself animatedly as she took part in a sensory programme using aromatic oils, sound, colour and music.  She appreciated the opportunity to become a teacher and somewhat  assertively encouraged interviewers to  “go home and make yourself some notes about the questions you want to ask next time”. Even after experiencing a stroke, Doris was happy to continue with the video project despite her increasing disability and memory loss.

She derived great pleasure in observing the rowan tree outside her window, observing the seasonal changes and watching the birds. Inevitably her illness progressed, yet more slowly than expected . After seven years Doris remained almost fully independent and mobile, causing the consultant neurologist to question whether the initial diagnosis had been correct. (confirmed by later brain scans in the  final stages of her illness). The self help Living Memory Alzheimers project (named Doris’s Day in her honour) has since  been used effectively by families and and carers and has been incorporated into residential therapy  programmes.

Doris passed away at the age of 93 and we planted a Rowan tree in remembrance. The Living Memory therapist team gave this fitting tribute:  “Our time with Doris became much more than a therapy session, she was our teacher, surrogate mother, grandmother and friend and gave much more healing than she received, all our lives were enriched through our connection to her. We loved her dearly and continue the work we began with her to ensure that her legacy lives on to give hope and practical advice to carers doing their best for those with this debilitating disease.  Thank you Doris

 

SHOOTING THE MESSENGERS

As hopes rise that vaccines can help control the pandemic, some of the world’s leading immunologists are expressing concerns of a potential further epidemic of autoimmune disease linked to the vaccine programme.

Professor Shoenfeld, credited as the ‘father of auto-immunity’ along with co-author Darja Kanduc from the University of Bari, Italy have warned of ‘molecular mimicry’ related to a number of genetic sequences that are identical in both the human genome and that of SARS-CoV-2 vaccines. The immunologists first drew attention to the identical sequences in a paper in Clinical Immunology published June 2020. Noting specific groups of proteins found deep in the lungs, the site of covid pneumonia, they suggest that peptide sequences used in the new vaccines should be unique and not common to ones found in the body.

THE IMMUNOLOGISTS ARGUE THAT FOR CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS WITH A PREDISPOSITION TO AUTOIMMUNE DISORDERS, AN ADVERSE VACCINE RESPONSE COULD TRIGGER AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE CURRENTLY SEEN IN LONG COVID.

All vaccines work by stimulating the immune system to make antibodies to the coronavirus spike protein, if the body encounters coronavirus in the future, the defence mechanism is then triggered. The new vaccines engineer small-peptide antigens to provoke the desired immune response. Antigens are toxins which induce an immune response, however the peptides (amino acid chains) require additional immune-stimulating agents and/or delivery systems (vectors) to be effective.

GENE TECHNOLOGY – STAYING INFORMED:

Genetic engineering is the direct manipulation of a genome to change the genetic make up of cells. Recombinant DNA are molecules of DNA from two different species which are inserted into a host organism to produce new genetic combinations. Baculovirus (an insect virus) is widely used  in gene technology to engineer insect cell lines to produce recombitant proteins.

    • In the AstraZeneca, Novavax vaccines, another cell or vehicle is used as a carrier (vector ) to transport the synthetic antigen into the body. The ChAdOx1 adenovirus, extracted from the stool of chimpanzees infected with the common cold (modified to avoid its replication) is utilised as a vector for the vaccine.  Researchers inserted a modified gene into a baculovirus to produce insect cell lines infected with the SARS spike protein. Spike proteins from these cells were then assembled into nanoparticles which cannot replicate or cause Covid-19 and injected into the body where the immune system mounts a T cell antibody response.

 

  • The new mRNA Pfizer and Moderna vaccines use messenger RNA (the molecule which instructs DNA) to trick the body into making the viral protein itself by triggering an immune response. These are the first mRNA vaccines to be licensed for use. The vaccines have strands of genetic material called mRNA, which acts as an instruction manual to make a piece of the “spike protein” taken from the SARS-CoV-2virus. When injected into the muscle of the arm, mRNA enters the dendritic cells and macrophages in the lymph node near the vaccination site, muscle cells then direct production of the synthetic antigen. The lymphatic system acts as an immediate transportation system carrying the genetic material throughout the body.

New data released as of Feb.12 from VAERS, the US Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System.  The latest VAERS data show that 799 of the deaths were reported in the U.S. and that about one-third of those deaths occurred within 48 hours of the individual receiving the vaccination. The average age of the deceased was 77.8 and the youngest was 23.   21% of deaths were cardiac-related. Dr. J. Patrick Whelan, a pediatric rheumatologist, warned the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in December 2020 that mRNA vaccines like those developed by Pfizer and Moderna could cause heart attacks and other injuries in ways not assessed in safety trials.

  • CBS Detroit reported that a 68-year old news anchor died of a suspected stroke one day after being vaccinated for COVID of a stroke.
  • Dr. Gregory Michael, a 56-year-old Florida obstetrician died shortly after receiving the vaccine after developing an extremely serious form of acute immune thrombocytopenia.
  • Bell’s palsy – facial paralysis.  (Pfizer 75%; Moderna: 25%)
  • Of 917 anaphylactic reactions, 70% of which were reported after a Pfizer vaccine and 30% after the Moderna vaccine.
  • Latest data lists 3,126 “serious” adverse reactions reported which also include 34 miscarriages and pre-term births.

VAERS is a passive surveillance system that relies on the willingness of individuals to submit reports voluntarily. Historically fewer than 1% of adverse events have ever been reported. According to their  website, healthcare providers are required by law to report within the specified time period after vaccination. However, “within the specified time” means that reactions occurring outside that timeframe may not be reported, as well as reactions suffered by people who don’t report those reactions to their healthcare provider.

The World Health Organization has now approved AstraZeneca’s COVID vaccine  for emergency use however some nations have said they won’t use it, citing safety and efficacy concerns.

  • News reports indicate that a growing number of people, including nearly 30% of healthcare workers, now say they don’t want the COVID vaccine, citing safety concerns.
  • The Washington Post report that nearly a third of military personnel are opting out of the vaccines.
  •  NBA top national basketball players are reluctant to promote the vaccine.
  • 40% of LA frontline workers were recently refusing inoculations.

As of Feb.19, about 56.3 million people in the U.S. had received one or both doses of a COVID vaccine despite the US Federal Drug Agency not yet implementing systems to monitor the safety of COVID vaccines. FDA officials told The New York Times they don’t expect the systems to be up and running before the Biden administration reaches its goal of vaccinating 100 million Americans. We are constantly told to trust the experts yet while many are sounding the warnings of possible autoimmune risks, governments are rolling out the mass vaccination programme despite the fact that millions suffer from auto immune disorders worldwide.

In addition to anti vaxers, there are many who simply prefer a more cautious ‘wait and see’ approach, utilising all available methods to curtail the virus pending further research. What possible motive could there be in silencing experts in the field or in ridiculing or censoring any who advise caution.Despite the horrific toll of the virus, a path of due diligence will ultimately ensure the best outcome, reassuring those who wish to take the vaccine, of it’s safety. We surely dismiss warnings from esteemed researchers like Professor Shoenfeld at our peril.

  • Shoenfeld is founder and head of the Zabludowicz Center for Autoimmune Diseases, at the Sheba Medical Center, which is affiliated to the Sackler Faculty of Medicine in Tel-Aviv University in Israel. He is on the editorial boards of 43 journals in the fields of rheumatology and autoimmunity and has published more than 1750 papers in journals such as New Eng J Med, Nature, The Lancet, Proc Nat Acad Scie, J Clin Invest, J Immunol, Blood, FASEB, J Exp Med, Circulation, Cancer and others. Professor Shoenfeld received the EULAR prize in 2005, in Vienna, Austria. In UC Davis, USA, and the Nelson’s Prize for Humanity and Science for 2008. He was recently awarded a Life Contribution Prize in Internal Medicine in Israel, 2012 as well as the ACR Master Award in 2013.

Vaccines – More Haste – Less Speed

Spiritual Connection through the Heart

SPIRITUAL CONNECTION THROUGH THE HEART (2)

Esoteric wisdom references the heart as the organ through which love and compassion manifest.  Medical science accepts that the heart is hormonally linked through the endocrine system but the deeper wisdom states that it is also energetically linked through the electromagnetic field to the primary impulse, which originates with the Higher Self or Super conscious awareness.The heart is therefore the physical intermediary between body and soul. Long dismissed by medical science as fanciful this verdict has now been overturned, confirmed by advanced technology.  The heart has long been associated with love and romance; poets have written about it, singers sing about it, tweeters tweet about it. We recognize emotional response through the heart as a real phenomenon and our heart beats faster or skips a beat at significant moments; this is due to the fact that it is a sensory organ.

TRUST ME I’M A DOCTOR

AS THE PANDEMIC GREW WE HAVE BEEN CONSTANTLY TOLD TO TRUST THE SCIENCE WITH THE VOICE OF DR ANTHONY FAUCI  OFTEN PROVIDING WELCOME  REASSURANCE – CONFIRMATION OR DENIAL OF RECENT DISTURBING REPORTS ARE NEEDED TO KNOW THAT OUR TRUST IS NOT MISPLACED.

Dr Anthony Fauci, Director of NIAID (National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) is responsible for viral research programmes and an estimated $5.9 billion budget for the fiscal year 2020. Citizens are normally reluctant to peer too closely into the shadowy world of biogenetic engineering however the pandemic and ensuing panic forced us to enquire into a possible cause.  In the clamour for a vaccine we are forced to address unpalatable facts. Becoming strangely  familiar  with terms such as ‘chimera’ (meaning ‘parts of different origins’) we learn that biotechnology involves combining cells of different species e.g. human/mouse, human/dog or human/chimpanzee to create chimeric genes or antibodies from which to develop a vaccine. At which point we either justify the need or choose to look the other way.

It is now known that following the 2002-2003 SARS coronavirus outbreak, the chimeric supervirus SHC014-MA15 was developed with genetic bioengineering by manipulating a SARS strain from horseshoe bats at the Fort Detrick bio-laboratory in America.  Chinese scientists, U.S. military virologists and NIH scientists from NIAID took part, collaborating with scientists at the universities of North Carolina, Wisconsin, Harvard and other institutions. (“we generated and characterised a chimeric virus expressing the spike of bat coronavirus SHC014 in a mouse-adapted SARS-CoV backbone” – November 2015) .

The Fauci programme included ‘gain of function’ research, a process called ‘accelerated evolution’ to create COVID Pandemic superbugs. The research involves taking wild viruses and passing them through live animals allowing them to mutate into a form that could pose a pandemic threat. Scientists observe the progression of transmission in these enhanced Covid mutants which are more lethal and more transmissible, enabling them to infect other species, interfere with immune system response and to spread readily  through the air.

WHISTLES BLOWN

Fauci’s studies alarmed scientists around the globe who complained that ‘these researchers risk creating a monster germ that could escape the lab and seed a pandemic’  while he argued that the research was worth the risk it entailed. In October 2014, following a series of federal laboratory mishaps in which the deadly engineered viruses could have escaped, President Obama ordered a halt to all federal funding for research aimed at enhancement of bacteriological pathogens.

Following the withdrawal of funding, the Fort Detrick programme closed but continued in Wuhan China where virologist Dr Robert Redfield led the teamAccording to Francis Boyle, human rights lawyer and professor of International law at the University of Illinois, the Chinese Virological Institute continued to be financed by NIAID under Dr Fauci through Eco Health Alliance. Funding was linked to USAID, the Washington government agency which is the operational arm of the Central Intelligence Agency.  Post Pandemic: On April 23 2020, the NIH informed EcoHealth Alliance that the remainder of its $7.1 million grant had been rescinded: (“NIH can confirm that the grant to EcoHealth Alliance Inc. has been terminated…”)

Q. SHOULD ROBERT REDFIELD AND DEBORAH BIRX HAVE LEAD THE WHITEHOUSE CORONA VIRUS TEAM?

U.S. military documents show that in 1992 the CDC’s current Director Robert Redfield and his then-assistant Deborah Birx, both Army medical officers, knowingly falsified scientific data published in the New England  Journal of Medicine, fraudulently claiming that an HIV vaccine they helped develop was effectiveThey knew the vaccine was worthless. Military investigators charged Redfield & Birx with engaging in ‘a systematic pattern of data manipulation, inappropriate statistical analyses & misleading data presentation in an apparent attempt to promote the usefulness of the GP160 AIDS vaccine.  An Air Force Tribunal on Scientific Fraud and Misconduct stated of Redfield:  “His allegedly unethical behaviour creates false hope and could result in premature deployment of the vaccine.”

Redfield confessed to the tribunal, that his analyses were faulty and deceptive and agreed to publicly correct them. He continued making his false claims at three subsequent international HIV conferences, and perjured himself in testimony before Congress, swearing that his vaccine cured HIV. Congress subsequently appropriated $20 million to the military to support Redfield and Birx’s research project.

Q.  IS THERE A POSSIBLE CONFLICT OF INTEREST IN THE  PANDEMIC TEAM?

Dr Fauci owns a number of vaccine patents including one that is being trialled to fight Covid-19 by some of America’s biggest vaccine manufacturers. Robert Kennedy Jr. has said that companies who used that patent have to split the profits 50/50 with NIAID and also claimed that the Gates Foundation had invested in that particular patent. The four major vaccine manufacturers in the US are Pfizer, Merck, GlaxoSmithKline, and Sanofi, if one of those four companies successfully develops a Coronavirus vaccine, Fauci and the NIAID stand to collect half of the royalties.   

The four patents on which Dr Fauci is named as an inventor are the following:

  • Patent Number: 9896509, patent granted August 3, 2016. “Use of antagonists of the interaction between HIV120 and ?4?7 integrin.
  • Publication Number: 20160333309, patent application filed August 3, 2016. “Use of Antagonists of the Interaction Between HIV GP120 and A4B7 Integrin.
  • Patent Number: 9441041, patent granted September 13, 2016. “Use of antagonists between HIV GP120 and ?4?7 integrin.”
  • -Publication Number 2016007586, patent application filed September 21, 2015. “Use of antagonists of the Interaction Between HIV GP120 and A4B7 Integrin.

BACK IN JANUARY 2020 MEDICAL STUDENTS IN INDIA PUBLISHED A REPORT ON CORONA VIRUS RESEARCH IN A MEDICAL SCIENCE JOURNAL STATING:

We found 4 insertions in the spike glycoprotein (S) which are unique to the 2019-nCoV and are not present in other coronaviruses. Importantly amino acid residues in all 4 inserts have identity or similarity to those in the HIV-1 gp120 ot HIV-GAG, all of which have identity/similarity to amino acid residues in key structural proteins of HIV-1.”  They stated  that such an insertion is not likely to occur in nature, the implication being that it was engineered in a lab, utilising the particular glycoprotein from the HIV-1 disease that involves patents held by or applied for by Dr Fauci. The  findings were disputed and the editor was forced to withdraw the article however Nobel Laureate Luc Montagnier who sequenced the AIDS virus, has since credited the paper and agreed the findings along with other prominent researchers.

Whatever the origin of the pandemic, we are all now living with the consequences of ‘gain of function’ research into chimeric viruses and left to ponder the wisdom of relegating and delegating power and authority without transparency and the nightmare prospect of unfettered science.

METAPHYSICS OF COVID 19

Many would agree that mankind appears to  have lost its moral compass, the ability to understand the connection between conduct and consequence. The gods of money, power and status are worshipped by those who ‘have’ and pursued by those who ‘have not’. Superficiality and temporary commitment  are just another means of avoiding pain, leading to further disillusionment.  At times the disconnect seems almost complete. Whether we recognise it or not, we are more than a physical body, our origin is spiritual… we simply need to remember who we are, where we come from and how to get back.

REMEMBERING THE SOUL: Ancient wisdom views the soul as the eternal aspect  of consciousness, residing temporarily in the  physical body. We are connected body and soul through our thoughts and emotions but the pull of the physical world is great… we forget the invisible intangible part of our selves, our true identity. Religions offer various paths to  assist our journey while philosophers attempt to define the exact nature of the soul. Both neglect to impart the wonder of the spiritual essence or radiance with which each one of us is imbued. Without this we forget our true heritage and purpose and become distracted by the world. At birth the soul remains connected to the source  by a non physical umbilical cord, described in the literature as ‘the silver cord’ through which the soul continues to receive intuitive guidance from the non material realm.  At the point of death this cord disconnects from the body in the same way the umbilical cord of the baby is cut to allow separation from the mother at birth. What we term ‘death’ is in reality a spiritual transition.

Just as the umbilical cord of the child  in the womb pulsates with the blood of the mother, so the spiritual cord can be see to pulsate with the light which is the essence of spirit. This is the source of life, the etheric energy which flows to the crown of the infant’s head during pregnancy and beyond, connecting through the spine to the developing subtle energy systems of the body.  From birth the crown or ‘fontanelle’  remains open, closing completely after a period of months to facilitate the anatomical connections which allow the light to be transmitted via the subtle energy system.

The colour and light emanating from all living things, recorded and measured by today’s technology, confirms the observations of mystics and those with clairvoyant vision through the ages. The electromagnetic field or human aura  is composed of myriad vibrational fields, the higher the frequency, the greater the light. This is how a spiritual master is recognised. This unique spiritual essence emanating as light, surrounding the physical body from birth to death is often referred to as ‘the garment of the soul’. This electromagnetic field develops exponentially in three 7 year stages and is complete at age 21, the reason this was formerly considered the age of majority. For the first seven years of life the subtle energy field connections remain open, maintaining a link with the higher vibrational frequency, the reason children frequently perceive the invisible worlds. By the age of 7 the chakras  begin to operate independently to encourage individuality and to allow free will to operate.

The electromagnetic field is strengthened and renewed or weakened and impaired by our choices and beliefs and our response to circumstances. Throughout life we are influenced by multiple factors, family, parenting, ethnicity, wealth, status, education etc. this is the journey of the soul. There is a wealth of evidence to demonstrate pre-destination, a pre determined plan for the soul. The energy field is a mirror of our personality, an ever changing reflection of thoughts, feelings and beliefs and past, present and future intentions. Positive thoughts and harmonious feelings radiate at a greater intensity than negative thoughts and emotions, worries and concerns which register at a denser frequency. Selfish demands, blaming others and holding on to past hurts creates cumulative negative frequencies, impacting upon the organs and systems of the body, resulting in disorder and eventual symptom patterns. We are in effect master weavers, weaving the garment of the soul from moment to moment to nurture or deplete ourselves.

COLLECTIVELY WE  WEAVE THE GLOBAL ENERGY FIELD WHICH NOURISHES OR DEPLETES THE EARTH AND EACH OTHER.

Most would agree that selfishness, superficiality and a sense of entitlement have largely replaced respect and dignity for the world in which we live and for those we share it with, hardly surprising then that we have created an impaired planetary field which reflects a ME rather than a WE attitude. Just as the body can survive chronic illness for a time, before it is overwhelmed by its own toxicity so the collective energy field of humanity is experiencing the cumulative effects of its impulses past and present. The environment is currently reflecting our choices back to us.

The Covid 19 virus has decimated the population of the world, mirroring our own self destructive process. Forced to self isolate and to practice social distancing, unemployment soars, education, sports and recreation are halted or curtailed and mental health declines. We are faced with an impossible dilemma –  the health of the nation V the economy.

Those who are yearning for a return to ‘normality’ have yet to grasp the enormity of what is occurring. To survive, humanity is required not only to adapt but to change, nothing less than a complete reversal of all that has led to our present circumstances will be enough. To do that we must understand the contributory factors.  We are unable or unwilling to accept that decades of materialism have led to spiritual compromise, that we are reaping the whirlwind of our choices.  Competition and greed have directed the world economy, leaving millions without the means to fulfil even basic needs.  Becoming disconnected from the higher stream of consciousness we have allowed unfettered  biotechnology, animal research and genetic modification in agriculture and medicine. By looking the other way we allowed animal experimentation unhampered by spiritual ethics.

There have been positive aspects to the pandemic, with time to spare many are rediscovering creative pursuits and enjoying  time spent together, an opportunity to reflect on priorities. Before we rush headlong like lemmings over the cliff we can take time to pause, to connect to the part of ourselves which links us to something greater. Joining together in communities large and small to create unified global networks, we can become the human family we were ever meant to be

Emerald Alignment is a simple method to assist relaxation, focusing beyond our thoughts and feelings to attune to positive energy. Practiced daily it will reduce stress, and promote calmness and peace and is a valuable aid to meditation.

 COVID 19 – A CALL TO ACTION

Updated:First Posted on May 6, 2020

AVOIDING UNPLEASANT TRUTHS DOES NOT MAKE THEM GO AWAY, IT INCREASES RISK AND VULNERABILITY. INFORMATION IS POWER – USE IT TO DEFEAT THE VIRUS.

As political wrangling, criticism and blaming diverts our gaze,  the Covid-19 virus continues mutating, creating unexpected complex conditions to puzzle molecular biologists and virologists worldwide.  Initially believed to be a pathogen that primarily attacks the lungs, the virus has proved to be more complex and more deadly with a potential to affect nearly every major organ system in the body, posing a much more significant threat.

Post viral effects are now emerging. Cardiologist Harlan Krumholz of Yale University and Yale-New Haven Hospital, who is leading multiple efforts to gather clinical data on COVID-19 explained:  “[The disease] can attack almost anything in the body  with devastating consequences,”  The virus acts like no pathogen humanity has ever seen, Covid-19 is linked to  SARS-CoV-2, it targets ACE2 receptors present throughout the body as an entry point to the cell.

The virus enters the nose and throat, an area  rich in ACE2 receptors, once inside  the cell it uses the cell mechanism to create myriad copies of itself invading new cells in the upper respiratory tract, at this point symptoms may be absent. The naso pharyngeal swab test reveals its presence.

If the immune system is unable to repel the virus at this early stage, it  travels down the windpipe to attack the lungs. The body’s immune response increases as white blood cells flood the area to kill infected cells enabling many to recover at this stage. Where the immune system is overwhelmed respiratory distress syndrome results and the patient may require to be admitted to ICU and placed on a ventilator. It is now known that such treatment can result in the breakdown of the cell walls, diminishing oxygen uptake; the body then releases more white cells creating what is referred to as a ‘cytokine storm’. Blood vessels leak, blood pressure drops, clots form, resulting in potential catastrophic organ failure. Drugs used to dampen the cytokine storm can also suppress the immune system, allowing more viral replication.

COMPLEX REACTIONS TO THE VIRUS ARE EMERGING

All viruses mutate, the reason we are obliged to renew our flu vaccine annually. The mutations of Covid-19 are now emerging, creating additional unknown hazards. The first new variant,  identified in the UK has now been seen in over 33 countries, it has 17 mutations, an unusually large number of genetic changes, particularly in the spike protein.  An additional variant, first identified in South Africa is causing concern, both variants are more contagious. The US has currently identified several mutations.

  • The new variants infect all ages with children and young adults most affected.
  • A reported rise in strokes and heart attacks among even young, asymptomatic patients with Covid -19  showed a tendency to abnormal blood clotting. Sudden unexplained low blood oxygen in Covid-19 patients caused doctors to consider how the virus appears to target blood vessels, placing those with diabetes and high blood pressure at greater risk.
  • Surprisingly, asthmatics have not  been widely affected, supporting the theory that those with vascular conditions are at greater risk.
  • Researchers are investigating the possibility that the virus may bind to receptors on endothelial cells,  found on the inside of blood vessels, like veins and arteries.
  • This raised the possibility that the virus triggers an immune reaction which results in clotting, increasing the  potential for stroke. Blood thinners are now  included in early treatment as a preventative measure.

LONG COVID’ is now recognised as a complication of Covid-19 where patients do not recover after the initial infection but develop complications affecting major organs or body systems. Impairment may last for several months and in some cases is permanent. It is also now known that the virus can  target cellular membranes in areas rich in ACE2 receptor cells and can affect the heart, kidneys, gut and brain. SARS-CoV-2 has been detected in blood, sputum, urine, faeces, and respiratory secretions from infected patients.

  • The kidneys have a rich supply of ACE2 receptors. Cytokine storms can dramatically reduce blood flow to the kidney, causing fatal damage. Unfortunately ventilators boost the risk of kidney damage.
  • ACE2 receptors are present in the neural cortex and brain stem.Robert Stevens, an intensive care physician at Johns Hopkins Medicine states that the cytokine storm could cause brain swelling while the increased  tendency of the blood to clot could trigger strokes.
  • SARS-Covid-19 can infect the lining of the lower digestive tract, where the crucial ACE2 receptors are abundant, resulting in gastrointestinal (GI) infection, raising the possibility of fecal transmission.
  • One third of hospitalized Covid -19  patients develop conjunctivitis with the potential to transmit the virus via ocular fluids.Healthcare workers are recommended to wear eye protection when dealing with patients who have or may have Covid -19.

VACCINES: MORE HASTE- LESS SPEED?

SCIENTIST HAVE BEEN WORKING WITHOUT SUCCESS TO DEVELOP A CORONA VACCINE FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS UNTIL THE CURRENT COVID-19 mRNA VACCINES WERE APPROVED IN RESPONSE TO THE GLOBAL PANDEMIC.

These  mRNA vaccines  are a completely new type that have never been used before.  Before 2020, no mRNA technology platform (drug or vaccine) had been authorised for use in humans, so an unknown risk remained. The gene technology (allowing direct modification or removal of a gene, or the transfer of a gene from one species to another) involves inserting DNA encoding an antigen (such as a bacterial surface protein) to stimulate an immune response. This bio technology has been tested for rabies, zika and influenza but not previously licensed due to previous safety concerns and risk of unknown side effects on humans causing many large pharmaceutical companies to abandon the technology.

Vaccine development is normally a long, complex process, often lasting 10-15 years involving 5 stages: The 1st stage involves basic laboratory research of 2-4 years. The next pre clinical stage of 1-2 years, studies tissue culture or cell culture systems and animal testing to assess human safety, this can include re-infecting vaccinated animals to assess the immune response. Many studies never progress beyond this stage due to adverse reactions. For those which do, application for licensing clinical trials is made to a review Board to approve commencement of 3 phases of testing clinical protocols, before Phase1 Vaccine Trials for human testing can begin. Initial human trials test 20-80 subjects, monitoring and recording response. If successful, Phase 2 Trials test several hundred individuals including some within the high risk category. Factors include prevention, immune response and side effects. Phase 3 Vaccine Trials, involves monitoring thousands to tens of thousands of people, before Licensing is granted with the conditions of  factory inspection and vaccine labelling compliance. Phase 4 monitoring by drug companies is optional after the vaccine is released. A Phase 5 voluntary reporting system ‘VAERS’ allows adverse reactions to be reported by lay persons.

Benefits of mRNA vaccines include speed of design and production, RNA vaccines have the advantage of being faster and cheaper to produce than traditional vaccines, RNA can be produced in the laboratory from a DNA template using readily available materials. Moderna designed their mRNA1273 vaccine for COVID-19 in 2 days.

The 2020 coronavirus pandemic led to debate about the type of initial authorisation mRNA vaccines should have (including emergency use authorisation after the eight-week period of post-final human trials). In December 2020, both Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech obtained emergency use authorisation for their mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccines, which had been funded by Operation Warp Speed, a public–private partnership initiated by the U.S. government.

In view of the perceived urgency developers were allowed to bypass the pre clinical Stage 2 animal trials and move straight into human trials, avoiding  public disquiet over animal experimentation.  During previous SARS-1 animal trials, the ‘Antibody Dependent Enhancement’ (ADE) produced by the vaccine caused devastating immune responses during the ‘challenge’ phase of reinfection, killing the animal trial subjects.

In October 2020, the prestigious science journal Nature, gave strict warnings that any COVID19 vaccine should be tested on animals before going to human trials precisely because of the problems experienced with the SARS-1 vaccine. This warning was ignored. The effects of possible reinfection remain unknown.

On 2nd December 2020, seven days after its final eight-week trial, the UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), became the first global medicines regulator in history to approve an mRNA vaccine, granting “emergency authorisation” for Pfizer/BioNTech’s BNT162b2 COVID-19 vaccine for widespread use. On 11th December 2020 the FDA gave approval for emergency use authorisation in the US.

VIRUSES SURVIVE BY INVADING THEIR HOST’S CELLS, UTILISING THE PROTEIN MAKING MECHANISM BY READING THE VIRUS’ GENETIC CODE TO REPLICATE COPIES.

GENETIC MODIFICATION USES BIO TECHNOLOGY TO ALTER GENETIC MATERIAL IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE A DESIRED CHARACTERISTIC. The mRNA vaccines differ from most conventional vaccines in that they don’t contain live or attenuated (weakened) virus.  Instead, RNA vaccines high jack the natural process that cells use to make proteins, utilising DNA as the template to make Messenger (mRNA) molecules. The Covid-19 virus caries numerous spikes on its surface which enhance its capability to infect. The vaccine has been genetically modified by taking a small part of the  virus i.e. the spike, which is then inserted as a mechanism to inoculate the cells with a small amount of spike protein. When injected, the virus enters the cell and begins to reproduce the spike protein. The body’s immune system recognises the genes as foreign and starts to attack by activating protective T Cells and B cells to destroy what it sees as invaders. The mRNA vaccines are delivered by lipid nanoparticles (fatty molecular envelopes)  incorporated into vaccines as a delivery mechanism to help strands of mRNA evade the body’s biological gatekeepers to reach their target cell without being degraded

We might be forgiven any reluctance to decipher the confusing list of letters and terms which are meaningless to most of us. DNA, RNA, mRNA, antigen, viral vector, antibodies, T Cells, B Cells. the list goes on… however to make an informed choice we must be informed. Thankfully each of us is now free to investigate the information available to us, to decide what is true, what is partly true and what may be false.This is worth noting as vaccine developers are indemnified against any adverse effects vaccine treatments may cause.

  • DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) the double helix two stranded molecule we are all familiar with is the code which carries genetic information, to programme the cells.
  • RNA (RNA Ribonucleic acid) is the single strand molecule which converts that code into proteins to carry out cellular functions.
  • mRNA (m forMessenger) is the  molecule which carries genetic information from the DNA within the cell nucleus to assist in the fundamental process of protein production.
  • Pathogens are microbes that can infect the body and cause illness.
  • Antigens are harmful substances viruses, fungi, or bacteria in or on the cells.
  • Antibodies are produced by the immune system to eliminate infection.
  • Viral vectors are delivery systems,  providing a means to invade the cell to insert the code. Genetic instructions are artificially embedded into the virus vector’s genome.
  • Recombinant vaccine is made by inserting the DNA encoding of an antigen (such as a bacterial surface protein) that stimulates an immune response.

* All of the Covid-19 vaccines are genetically modified. Pfizer with German biotech firm BioNTech both use mRNA that encodes the spike protein. AstraZeneca with the University of Oxford UK utilises a viral vector (or carrier) which holds extra genetic material that codes for the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.

Paula Cannon, an associate professor of microbiology at the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine described the process “It’s really a clever trick.”But stated “The immune system is incredibly complicated and it’s different from person to person… “There’s always a concern when you are trying to trick the immune system — which is what a vaccine does — that you could have unintended side effects,”

SURVIVAL – CONTINUITY OF CONSCIOUSNESS

GRANDAD’S COAT

As multi dimensional beings we experience altered states of consciousness, often without recognising them. Communication from those who no longer inhabit the physical world has been recorded through millennia and is intricately linked to memory and past associations. It is usually the more dramatic events which cause us to reflect on them or to share them. My first personal experience of note occurred as a seven year old child, shortly after the death of my grandfather.  Although we had seen each other rarely, due to his age and infirmity, I always felt a deep connection. Two or three times each year he would make the slow painful journey to visit us.  In winter he always wore a heavy tweed overcoat. As he entered the house he would remove his flat cap, fold it and place it in his pocket….on leaving he would retrieve it and place it on his head. This small ritual always seemed so personal. On each occasion he brought me a bag of sweets, the three cornered paper bags no longer seen today…always filled with Liquorice Allsorts. The blue ones were my favourite.

Grandad passed away at the age of 84 and I attended his funeral with my mother, it left a deep impression on my childish mind,  not least because we were the only mourners. I remember looking down into the grave as the coffin was lowered and walking away deeply concerned that grandad would be cold without his overcoat.

Only days later I was lying in bed one night, on the verge of falling asleep when I became aware of my feet, I opened my eyes to see my grandfather sitting at the bottom of the bed. He looked as he had always looked, wearing his tweed overcoat and flat cap; he was holding a bag of sweets and turned to offer the bag to me….As I reached out he disappeared. I was not afraid, in fact I was more disappointed that the sweets had dematerialised along with him!  I told my mother next day..she gave me a strange look and said I must have been thinking about him and  imagined it. I learned never to tell anyone about such experiences, it was decades before I did so.

My parents were hardworking, not poor but less than comfortable, their week stretched from one pay cheque to the next. In the days before duvets, our beds had only the post war blankets, fleecy blankets along with duvets were yet to be invented. I remember always feeling cold. After this event my mother placed grandad’s heavy tweed overcoat on my bed, it provided not only additional warmth as a blanket but emotional warmth, a reminder of our connection.

This and the numerous other psychic experiences led me to investigate the nature of consciousness and eventually to my work as an energy therapist, helping clients understand their Near Death, Past Life and Out of Body Experiences. Some 45 years after the nocturnal visit by my grandfather, I visited Connemara, Galway in Ireland, my grandad’s birthplace. As I collected pebbles by a stream, I noted  the beautiful green colours, each of different hue and decided to take them home as a souvenir to remind me of the visit and of him. They were placed in the back of the boot of the car with luggage for the return journey home and forgotten about.

Some months later at a group gathering intended to demonstrate communication and the continuity of consciousness beyond death,  the medium, who had no knowledge of my Irish heritage, described a male figure who said he had a message for me. Attempting to identify him he said: “He’s wearing a tweed overcoat, I’m hearing an Irish brogue… He says he was with you when you visited the land of his birth…when you picked up the stones by the river…he says to take them out of the back of the car…This could only be a reference to my grandfather and the recent trip to Ireland. The medium continued: “He’s saying, ‘Find the one that wears a cap… the one with the nick in the back”  (I had no idea what this meant)  “He’s taking something out of his coat pocket…It’s a cap folded in half…he’s waving it as he walks away”.

I waited for the session to end then went immediately to search the boot of the car…there were the green Galway stones I had collected. I set them on the dining room table and examined each one…. they were round, one was different from all the rest. Flat and thin..shaped like a peaked cap, with a nick in the back it was a reminder if any were needed of my granddad’s  signature flat cap. It sits today on my desk, a constant reminder that loved ones are never lost and whether or not we believe it, they remain close to those they love.

I was previously unaware of the green stone for which Connemara is famous,  when I  researched it for this blog I found the following description:  ‘Connemara marble is a type of stone from the hills of County Galway, Western Ireland. It is over 900 Million years old and is unique to Ireland. It is serpentine-rich and comes in ‘forty shades of green’, with no two pieces being exactly alike. It is given as a gift to remind people of Celtic origins and of their homeland, though they may travel or live overseas’.   I like to think that the message was grandad’s way of reminding me of our connection and a shared heritage.

How are we to explain such occurrences?  Did my grandfather really visit me as a child and if so why?  To understand who or what I saw we need a metaphysical explanation of the multi dynamic nature of consciousness. The origin of consciousness is spiritual not physical, the body is the impermanent structure which houses the unique and recognisable soul personality…which might be described as ‘a work in progress’.  The spirit is eternal and maintains the connection between the soul and the higher realms, the true home. The human aura has been described as ‘the garment of the soul’,  an energy field which encapsulates and mirrors the physical body in shape and form. The aura  is comprised of multi layered vibrational frequencies which correlate to personal thoughts and feelings, it can be observed by those with clairvoyant faculties, it can also be monitored on screen through todays technology. With the death of the physical body separation occurs as the departing soul adjusts to a non physical dimension. During this period visitations are frequently reported…this is a farewell and not a goodbye. Where emotional attachments are sustained communication continues, whether or not it is acknowledged by those who remain. This takes many forms including audio, sensory and visual,  including  the phenomena  of ‘the hairs standing up on the back of the neck’  a signal of psychic connection which should alert us to a significant event. Mediums are able to identify a recognisable personality through the projected imagery they present to mirror the person we once knew …the reason I was able to recognise my grandfather.

ALZHEIMERS – A Spiritual Perspective of ‘The Long Goodbye’

The day I went to visit my mother and found her sprinkling sugar on a plate of mashed potatoes as she told me she had made me my favourite custard tart for tea, was a turning point . I was forced to accept that the mild confusion and increasing memory loss of recent years had become something else. We had reached a point of no return. An independent woman who had shown great resilience throughout her life was now dependent upon us, her family and sadly it was no longer possible to ensure her safety in her own home.

In the months which followed I sought help from every available source, becoming increasingly aware that our remaining time together to share any meaningful conversation was slipping away. I resolved to use it well. Doris had overcome major challenges throughout her life, writing a fascinating autobiography to record her war time memories and nursing experiences.   We talked for hours as she repeated the well worn stories of her teenage years,  the ‘big band’ sounds of Glenn Miller and the weekly dances, the sound of sirens and the hurried rush through the streets to air raid shelters.  Tears rolled down her cheeks as she recalled the friends in khaki who never returned when the war ended; on one occasion she looked around the room and said; ‘It’s nice to see them again’ When I asked who she was referring to she gave the names of three soldiers, friends who had been lost. I remembered she had told me their story many years ago.  ‘They come now and again‘ she said ‘usually round Poppy Day’.  I had no doubt that she could see her old friends and thank fully did not feel the need to contradict her in an attempt to stop the ‘hallucination’.
