EYES ARE OPENING........AND I'M SCARED.....
I've been lurking on this site for a few months, trying to work out how I feel about what I THOUGHT I knew. Now I feel compelled to sign up and join in. Many, many threads I've read on here make sense to me, government corruption, global debt, Sandy Hook, powerful people leading the sheep etc..... I no longer watch television, and I've banned my kids from watching Disney channels, (over-reacting, maybe?) I get news from here then confirm what I've heard with mainstream media BBC or Sky. Paranoia levels are high, am I putting my family in danger by just reading stuff on the web?

I decided to have a break from conspiracy stuff, charged my kindle to escape in to a "book" and something I saw gave me chills. When a site I use suggests recommendations to read, buy or watch, I used to think "how considerate, making personalised suggestions just for me", now it seems so much more sinister.....I realise that some computer somewhere knows what I like to read, eat, how old my kids are, how many pets I have, what I drive, what my husband does for a living.....I'll be honest, I'm very scared and I don't know what's real and what's not. Unfortunately my gut instinct tells me we live in a very corrupt society and the people in charge are NOT looking after our best interests and the future of our children but I don't know what to do about it.

Sorry about my lengthy post, but it's been a long time coming!

And now I'm reluctant to post.....paranoid again...

Dude, your not the only one reading it. Everyday more and more people become wise to whats happening in the world. If your in danger, we're ALL in danger. There are things you can use to protect yourself, and your privacy. Look into TOR and Proxies if your really concerned. But, your privacy online has been long since violated. Remember the internet was invented by the NSA. Inherently in the system there are holes built into it. My suggestion is it's far better to stay alert to whats going on, than to bury your head in the sand and pretend like it's not happening.

Cheers,

You're right, I didn't mean to come across self-obsessed, just concerned for the future of our kids....I will look into the things you mentioned (haven't a clue what they are), thanks for your support. Safety in numbers etc, etc.

Any advice on how to broach these theories with family or friends....my husband thinks I'm losing the plot or getting heavy?

Try and take a step back and think about the countless numbers of individuals who are reading the same information and exploring the same subject matters and all the different websites, books, videos, and mediums that are out there discussing various topics and attempting to spread awareness. When you look at the scope and magnitude of what's going on you will begin to understand that there is nothing inherently unique or special about your individual circumstances that should warrant your concern about exploring these subjects.

I would argue that it is natural to experience temporary feelings of anxiety/paranoia when you are going through the process of raising your awareness and exploring the greater nature of this 'reality'. Just a little shock to your system and your previous understanding of how things are. Once it settles in and you adjust and restore some balance you will feel better. Countless other people have experienced and been through what you are reporting so don't feel isolated or alone.

I do agree with you that too much of anything can be detrimental so if you find yourself getting too worked up it would definitely be wise to take breaks and divert your focus/attention to other matters. Try and find a healthy BALANCE.

 Quoting: jlowen


Most people are not mentally prepared to hear or discuss many of the subject matters you find on sites like this. Too much information can really rattle their nerves and put them into a defensive position or in denial so you really have to exercise caution & discernment with regards to how you communicate with people. Best to find someone you can speak with that you know that is open-minded and will not judge you or react negatively for you speaking your mind & sharing ideas.

Go quietly about prepping for your family' needs.(foods, meds, etc) If hubby doesnt already get it with everything going on, odds are he won't get it even when you talk to him. Most people will only get it when it actually happens. Then he will thank you for preparing somewhat for his family.

The most important thing to do is trust yourself. Trust your intuition. Question just about every major "news story" that you hear on the MSM (main stream media). A majority of it is laundered and skewed to fit a certain agenda.

I woke up about 4 years ago. I stumbled across a few videos that made too much sense to me to ignore. So I kept digging and researching and looking into stories that seemed "fishy". I found too many holes and asked too many questions that the journalists covering the stories should have been asking, but weren't. Such as, where are the surveillance videos of the Sandy Hook massacre? They just invested in a brand new security system at the school. Cameras in every hallway and in every major classroom. Surely there must be something. After all, wouldn't they flaunt their "bad guy" all over the press? Wouldn't they play the tape over and over and over, saying "this is the bad guy. See his gun? See his evil?"
But no.
No video. Why? Because there was at least one more guy with him. Explain who was captured in the woods on the helicopter video. Explain who the cops had handcuffed on the floor when they arrived. They wouldn't slap the cuffs on a dead guy, so it wasn't Lanza. Where are there two men? Did the FBI show up and tell the local cops that "we got it from here" and then let the guys go? (probably)
When the local cops got on the scene, they said that they found the shooter with 2 pistols on his body. A SIG Saur 9mm and a Glock 9mm. Two pistols. So why is everybody saying that it was an assault rifle? They pulled the assault rifle out of the trunk of the car. It was never used. Right? But then why did the coroner say that it was the primary weapon? And if it was, why are bullets being found lodged in the bodies and not in the walls? A .223 caliber bullet would go straight through a little kid (sorry to sound so crude) and probably through the next kid and then into a wall. They're not 9mm.
COuld this explain why parents were not allowed to go into the school to see their child's body? Forensic "clean up"? What more did the forensic guy need to do that took 3 days? They found the guy, dead. And the guns. And the bodies. End of story, right? Why couldn't the parents go inside?
What was going on in there for so long?

Why isn't the media doing their job and asking these questions?
Because they're all puppets, too. They've got a hand up their ass telling them what to say. The local journalists are probably still good, because they have big dreams of the big story breaking and their fame for being the first to report it. But then their editor tells them to stop sniffing around. Becuase their editors boss calls them up and tells him that his local station needs to stop sniffing around. Or else.

Re: EYES ARE OPENING........AND I'M SCARED.....
Believe me, OP, what you are going through is what so many of us have gone through before you, and what so many more are going through right now, along with you. When you first realize how literally EVERYTHING you once believed about how the world works is a lie, it's shocking and very difficult to accept. Our normalcy bias is strong, and the brainwashing techniques they've used on us exceptionally potent. But a global awakening of consciousness IS happening, and at an accelerating rate. That's what the whole 2012 thing was actually about -- energy from an extremely unusual galactic alignment is bathing the Earth in cosmic energy that has the effect of reawakening our innate powers of discernment, which have lain dormant for so long. We are all waking up and starting to be able to perceive the truth of our situation here on this planet.

But the truth is NOT what most people think it is. What is coming is not any of the kinds of doom you read about on this site or on many others. What is coming is the most positive change you could imagine, a new Golden Age, where we all get to see what it's like to live without the parasitical controllers we suffer with today.

As other posters have said, talking about what you're beginning to understand is very difficult; few people are ready to hear what you have to say. Their brainwashing will kick in and you will generally get very stiff resistance, quizzical looks, and even outright anger. Tread lightly, let others awaken at their own speed if you can. Our numbers are growing, but it will take time for everyone to join us. Be patient. And enjoy the ride; it's going to be a beautiful one!

I can't know why you posted this clip from cabaret, I can only tell how and why it resonated with me. I have been recently thinking this film and part of this clip in particular even though I probably haven't seen the movie in 30+ years. Nonetheless my thoughts have been about the weimar republic and its basis as the breeding grounds for fascism. In particular I recall in my minds eye the image of the emcee's (joel grey)distorted reflection in the mirror at the beginning of the film and the beautiful directorial symmetry of his distorted reflection in the mirror at the end of the film and how the shot then pulls back to reveal the twisted and distorted faces of the audience (our proxies) who think that they are only watching the show and not participants. That perhaps is part of this tragedy of our times - too many of us feel that we are only participant (willing or unwilling) and not actors in our own destiny.

I know that just habituating this site feeds and gratifies one's "doom-bido" (it's like libido and morbido only its "doom") BUT I strongly feel that we are on the cusp of repeating some very bloody chapters in human history - perhaps this is what is meant by eternal recurrence - we are damned not just to forget but to repeat the past ad infinitum...

Re: EYES ARE OPENING........AND I'M SCARED.....
You're right, I didn't mean to come across self-obsessed, just concerned for the future of our kids....I will look into the things you mentioned (haven't a clue what they are), thanks for your support. Safety in numbers etc, etc.

Any advice on how to broach these theories with family or friends....my husband thinks I'm losing the plot or getting heavy?

Go quietly about prepping for your family' needs.(foods, meds, etc) If hubby doesnt already get it with everything going on, odds are he won't get it even when you talk to him. Most people will only get it when it actually happens. Then he will thank you for preparing somewhat for his family.

This is good advice. Talking too much about it can scare them so they go into denile. Just going about doing the prep work quietly is the best way. It is better to be safe than sorry in the long run.

You can talk about it later when their eyes get opened.
