Merry Christmas



Just a quick note to say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to al my reader’s friends, I had some doubts choosing a nice Christmas card because

I didn’t want to be accused being sexist, so I opted out for two different ones, (btw I like the first one…)

Enjoy Christmas in peace and love.



America Warned Is Just Months Away From Financial Armageddon


The plan of the American Progressives, led by President Obama, to plunge the United States into economic chaos in order for their being able to ‘rebuild’ it from ‘the bottom up’ appears to be nearing success as new warnings have been issued stating that they are just months away from financial Armageddon.

American Progressives advocate changes to society through more governmental action and stand sharply opposed to Conservatives who advocate for minimal and gradual change through less governmental action.

Nationwide polls conducted this past year in the United States show the vast majority of their citizens support the Conservatives (42%) with support for Progressives amounting to barely 20%.

The type of government the American people say they want, however, stands in sharp contrast to who they have elected to lead them as their President and both Houses (Senate and House of Representatives) of Congress are currently controlled by Progressives.

Elections in the United States this past November did return the US House of Representatives to the control of Conservatives, but this attempt by the American people to ‘adjust the course’ of their Nation to avoid total economic collapse appears to be ‘too little, too late’.

The reason for this being so lies in a new tax bill currently wending its way through the US Congress that the Global credit agency Moody’s has warned, if it passes, and Obama signs it into law, the United States Aaa credit rating will most likely be cut and causing an inflationary spiral to hit the Americans the likes of which they have never seen.

Interesting to note is that at the same time the US is being warned its credit rating will be cut; Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services lifted Communist China’s long-term credit rating as that Nations holdings of United States debt reached a record $906.8 Billion.

Heedless to the warnings of its credit rating being cut, however, the American Progressives, and in spite of their achieving the highest federal budget deficit on record for November, launched a shocking new assault upon the US economy this week with a new $1.1 Trillion nearly 2,000 page spending bill they have not allowed the Conservatives to even read and vow to make it law before the end of the year.

Even worse for the United States is that it has to roll-over in the coming months Trillions of Dollars of debt estimated to be 27.8% of their entire Gross Domestic Product (GDP) at the same time Global markets have become alarmed over the Americans failure to control the biggest debt in their history and resulted in last weeks massive sell-off of US Treasury Bonds.

The Obama government responded to this massive sell-off by raising the interest rates on US Treasury’s to 6-months highs prompting David Bloom, currency chief at Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC), to warn: “…if yields are rising because people think America’s fiscal situation is unsustainable, then its Armageddon.”

The inflationary spiral warned to hit the United States couldn’t come at a worse time as aside from the tens-of-millions who have already lost their homes in the greatest housing rout since the Great Depression, over 5.2 million Americans are said living in homes 60-90 days past due on their mortgages.

Equally worse to hit the Americans is what Dan Akerson, chief executive of General Motors, warned is the coming “gas price shock” he is preparing his auto company for by hiring 1,000 engineers and researchers to quickly build more fuel efficient vehicles as these people will no longer be able to afford to drive what they now own.

Important to note about the dire straights the Progressive’s have put the American economy into is no less a person than the United States top military officer,  Admiral Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who in a recent warning stated that the US debt has now become the single biggest threat to their National security.

Most unfortunately for the American people is their continued blindness to the grave state their once great Nation is now in, and their continued allowing of their Nation to be looted for the sole benefit of their elite Progressive ruling classes that defies all explanation, especially in light of the violent protests erupting all across the European Continent against these so called ‘banksters’ who are continuing to loot the wealth of the West to line their own pockets.

To the bankers of today supported most strongly by the Obama regime and his Progressive allies, the 7th President of the United States, Andrew Jackson, fought against in the early 1800’s and whose words from those days echo forward to a new generation of Americans:

“Gentlemen, I have had men watching you for a long time and I am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter, I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves.”

Sadly, today, and as over 50 million Americans are reported are in danger of starving, the lessons of their ancestors have not been heeded, creating the strong likelihood that these once great people have in effect become nothing more than slaves to their new bankster masters.

Will an Icelandic Volcano Spoil Christmas?


———————–>base map credit: Iceland Meteorological office
The Eyjafjallajokull volcano region in Iceland has suddenly become active with a number of earthquakes after having been mostly quiet since its eruption subsided early this year. Eyjafjallajokull erupted during 14-April and went on to cause weeks of European air traffic problems as a result of ash spewing into the atmosphere – which can clog jet engines.

While watching its neighbor, Katla, which historically has erupted 6 months to 1.5 years afterward, it was surprising to see new earthquake activity at Eyjafjallajokull. During the past six months there has consistently been and earthquake here and there at the Eyjafjallajokull location, but to see a dozen or so, within a day or two, is new behavior.

Volcanoes are fickle, and this activity could abruptly end, but noteworthy nonetheless.

Additionally, there have been rumors that GPS measurements in the region have indicated inflation (surface areas that are lifting higher) which if true, will certainly raise an eyebrow… Again, this is not confirmed at this moment. Just putting it out there.

Could Eyjafjallajokull erupt again, so soon after the last one? Time will tell.

Chances are, European holiday travel will go on without issue, except for the snow and cold…

(Note that this is observation reporting only – not a vulcanologist :=)

Freak diversion of jet stream is paralyzing the globe with freezing conditions


December 23, 2010

  • It's snowing in Australia and California yet 'warm' in Greenland

The freezing conditions that have blasted Britain are being blamed on a series of weather patterns that are bringing Arctic temperatures to much of western Europe, California and even Australia.

One of the main factors is a change in the position of the jet stream - the fast-moving current of air that moves from west to east, high in the atmosphere.

Changes in the jet stream's path can cause massive changes in weather conditions across the globe and may be why Australians are now shivering their way through summer and the current freezing conditions in California.

In a normal British winter - when conditions are mild and soggy - the jet stream lies over northern Europe, at an altitude of between 35,000 to 50,000 fee. [ DAILY MAIL UK ]

Odd 10 km depth Aftershocks of 7.4 Earthquake, Japan


During December 21, a magnitude 7.4 shook the seafloor 960 km (600 miles) from the coast of Japan. This earthquake brings the total number in that category (mag 7) to 20 during the year 2010.

During the middle of the night the earthquake shook awake residents of Tokyo while tsunami alerts warned of possible 1 meter high waves, fortunately small.

Not surprisingly, many strong aftershocks have been jolting the region and are expected to continue for some time. After approximately 70 powerful aftershocks, a very strong magnitude 6.3 surprisingly jolted the region and alarmed locals who scrambled to higher ground in fear of tsunami.
The location of the 7.4 earthquake is in very close proximity to the pacific plate, which itself is moving approximately 75 mm per year to the west in that area.

An interesting observation of the numerous aftershocks is the fact that most all of them are located at a depth of 10 km. This is the same observation of the recent earthquake swarm that occurred off the coast of Yemen in the Gulf of Aden.

The following illustration shows the depths of the various earthquakes of each event (Japan and Gulf of Aden). The first earthquake begins on the left side of the graph and subsequent earthquakes continue to the right.
Why are so many earthquake aftershocks all located at depths of 10 km?

Logical thinking indicates that this is where the most stress is located and being released after the initial “big one” which was located at 14.9 km depth.

The cross-sectional area of the location of aftershocks affecting the Japan – Bonin Islands region is approximately 3,500 square km (2,200 square miles). It is as though a huge horizontal sheet of this size is stressed at 10 km below the seafloor.

Or, perhaps there is another explanation, to be determined.

Prepare: START Treaty will probably pass


The latest Washington DC treaty to lower the number of nuclear weapons the US possesses, START, will probably pass the Senate today. The treaty will limit the number of nuclear warheads for both the USA and Russian Federation to 1500 (down from 2250) and the number of launchers to 800 total land, sea and air.
START will also resume inspections by both sides of each other's nuclear arsenal and launchers.
A number of characters will be doing a happy dance when this treaty gets passed.
Here is what is not covered in the START treaty.
- There is nothing in the treaty about the number of nuclear weapons and launchers that China can have, nor about any sort of inspection for their growing nuclear arsenal.
- There is nothing in the treaty about limiting new countries from obtaining nuclear weapons. Right now the list of countries who have produced crude weapons or are working dillegently on them includes North Korea, Venezuela, Myamar, and Iran.
- There is nothing in the treaty which limits the USA or Russia from assisting another country with the construction or design of nuclear weapons. Further, there is nothing in the treaty which limits either country from new military treaties which can be used to increase the potential nuclear offensive capability of a new alliance.
- There is nothing about the treaty first inspecting the working capability of either country and places limits based upon that capability. Thus, one country may only have 600 functioning launchers meaning this treaty is only window dressing.
- There is nothing in this treaty which addresses the real potential cause for nuclear war which is a terrorist organization, backed by legitimate states, using nuclear devices against the USA or Russia.
At this point, the USA and Russia have successfully, over the past twenty years, reduced the number of functioning nuclear weapons and launchers they both have. That's great if the largest problem in the world is the potential of a nuclear war between the USA and the Russian Federation.
However, in 2010, this situation is not the problem the world faces today.
The real issue with nuclear proliferation today is not between the USA and Russia, but with dozens of other nations which are actively and agressively working on building nuclear capability. If the USA and Russia eliminate too much of their working nuclear deterrent, they may find themselves in the near future at the mercy of a collaboration between nuclear armed terror groups and rogue nations or even a growing nuclear armed nation like China.
At some point, those doing the happy dance with the signature of this START treaty had better start recognizing that the real danger comes from those not in the room on signing day.

They Won’t Leave You Alone


Madison Co. to evict man from camper

“Land of the free”, ‘home of the brave”?

This would make the founders of this country turn over in their graves and goes against every principle this country was built on. Ya, it’s a free country as long as you do what they tell you to do.

He is an American, living on his own land, land that he paid for, not bothering or hurting anyone, yet big bother says he has to go. Why? because he lives to simply. They say.

Oh, my God he don’t have electricity from the utility or government approved septic system. Time to call in the government thugs and move this man off his land before he breaks another government ordinance by peeing on the ground.

Folks, they won’t leave you alone. Really Pissed

What do you think – is this still a free country? Should this man be moved off his property?

The Flu Virus, Facts You Should Know



As the flu season begins to ramp up, there are 3 flu strains going around, H1N1 (swine flu), an H3N2 virus, and an influenza B virus, all of which are included in the 2010-2011 flu vaccine.

When outdoor temperatures plummet, people move indoors and interact more under indoor conditions. When people are inside together, it increases the likelihood of spreading the virus.

What is the flu

The flu is not a “bad cold” that keeps you sick for a few days. The flu is a virus, and it knocks you off your feet for a week, barely able to move with severe muscle aches and joint pain, headache, fever (usually high), chills, dry cough, and extreme tiredness and no desire or energy to eat or drink. When the flu strikes, there will be no doubt that you have it. It is amazingly debilitating.

The flu is a respiratory illness caused by the influenza virus, not a gastrointestinal one. When the virus gets into the body, it moves into the respiratory tract where it binds to cells, takes over their function, replicates itself, kills off the original cell which then goes on to infect other cells. This process happens countless times over without you ever realizing, until it eventually enters the bloodstream and symptoms begin to occur. Then of course, it’s too late. Eventually, a healthy immune system will fight back, but it will take a while, a solid week of suffering and additional weeks of weakness.

The symptoms of a cold are similar, however the big difference to know is the severity. Additionally, the common cold rarely spikes a fever, while the flu will spike a high fever. Once the flu is contracted, there will be no doubt in the mind from that point forward.

What is the flu shot

The flu shot is an inactivated vaccine (containing killed virus) that is given with a needle, usually in the arm. After the vaccination, the immune system will develop a resistance to the strains within the vaccine after about two weeks.

The flu vaccine changes each year and is specifically tailored for the flu strains determined to be in circulation that year.

The flu shot provides about a 75 percent effectiveness rate in preventing hospitalizations.

It’s not too late to get a flu shot, if you are inclined. Although there are those who would rather not get the shot for various reasons, if you have ever really caught the flu, you will never want to have it again.

To depend entirely on ones own immune system to combat the flu may not be the best way to cope with the flu… after all, our bodies used to have a hard time coping with smallpox, polio, tuberculosis, tetanus, and others, until vaccines were developed and administered.

How to prepare for the flu

Once you have already caught the flu, it will be too late to prepare or go to the store for food or supply. You will not be capable of doing any of that, so plan ahead.

The number one priority while suffering from flu symptoms is to remain as hydrated as possible. When dehydrated, drinks like Pedialyte or Gatorade are even better than water, because they replace electrolytes that are lost (I’m sure there are other “good” liquids available too with vitamins and electrolytes).

Try to keep the fever under control. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) and ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) help reduce fever in children and adults. Aspirin is very effective for treating fever in adults. DO NOT give aspirin to a child unless your child’s doctor tells you to.

Although while suffering from the flu, the appetite is suppressed, having simple ready-meals will save pain and aggravation. Most all of us have at least a few cans of soup lying around, so goes without saying… or perhaps your spouse will fix up something healthy and warm :=)

How to avoid the flu

Get a flu shot

Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.

Wash your hands often with soap and water.

Try to avoid close contact with sick people.

If someone sneezes nearby, hold your breath and walk further away.

Technically, you could wear a properly rated Flu Mask.

The most effective avoidance may be to try to notice and stop yourself when you’re about to rub your eyes, nose, or mouth (an important habit to get in to!)

How to catch the flu

Indirect transmission is common.

You can catch the flu from rubbing your eyes, nose, or mouth after handling an object an infected person christened with a sneeze a few moments ago. It is important to know that flu viruses primarily spread when an uninfected person has direct contact (a handshake, inhaling sneezed particles, touching an infected surface) with an infected person.

Flu virus will survive outside the body from a few minutes to as long as 48 hours. Flu generally remains active longer on stainless steel, plastic and similar hard surfaces than on fabric and other soft surfaces.

Prepare: New Nuclear War Preparedness Guide FedGov


There is a new nuclear preparedness guide from the FedGov and sponsored by a group called the National Association of Government Communicators.
Check it out here. It's in PDF format which means you will need Adobe reader which is free.
In case you don't have the time, here's a synopsis of the report.
- A nuclear detonation occuring in the USA is possible due to proliferation and terrorists.
- Such an event would be horrific and communication with the populace by the government at all levels would be important.
- Several suggestions about what to do, i.e. where to shelter, in the event of a nuclear detonation.
- How to deal with decontamination, radiation illness, food and water concerns.
- What to expect from the government at all levels.
- Sample statements for local, state and federal government spokespersons (which was interesting - I hope I never hear them).
There were some very frustrating statements in the report.
- Constant reminders for government leaders to reassure people that all would be well.
- Suggestions that the populace consider volunteering their time or donating to the Red Cross in the event of a nuclear detonation or war complete with URL of related websites.
- The most annoying line "Will shelters be available for people instructed to evacuate?"
"Yes, there will be public shelters with food, medicine, etc".
Reminder - there are no stocked public shelters in the event of a nuclear detonation. They were dismantled years ago and never replaced.
What was missing? The real responses by the government to a disaster of this magnitude...
- There will be martial law in effected areas if not completely nationwide.
- Despite the fact that the attack came from an enemy, the American people will be the ones penalized. Consider all the actions taken against Americans since 9/11 for our "safety". Been on an airplane lately?
- Civil rights will be curtailed in a post-nuclear America and probably will be off the table for awhile.
- Civilains will be on their own for most of their needs. The government has shelters however.
An interesting report none the less and worthy of review. I can only wonder why this document and related news reports have been so widely noted lately and can only believe they are due to the federal government's push for the new START treaty with Russia.

2010 Earthquake Summary



The Pacific Ring of Fire wins the prize for the most earthquakes during 2010. No doubt it is always the hot spot each year for activity.

In the world during 2010, there were nearly 2,000 earthquakes of magnitude 5.0 and greater.

  • magnitude 5 range (about 1,800)
  • magnitude 6 range (143)
  • magnitude 7 range (19)
  • magnitude 8 range (1)

The largest earthquake of the year was a magnitude 8.8 located in Chile, South America.
The deadliest earthquake of the year was a magnitude 7.0 that killed more than 200,000 people in Haiti.
There were approximately 226,888 deaths from earthquakes during 2010, one of the deadliest years on record.
The highest increase in the number of earthquakes of 10 and 100 year averages was in the magnitude 7 range. There were 50 percent more magnitude 7 earthquakes during 2010 than the last 100 year average, and 31 percent more than the last 10 year average (USGS statistics).
The most concentrated location of earthquakes and the shakiest place in the continental United States during 2010 was in southern California just north of the Mexican border near the tiny town of Coyote Wells, about 70 miles east of San Diego and 25 miles west of the Pacific Plate tectonic boundary. Although most were relatively small in magnitude, approximately 600 earthquakes, many hundreds more some spilling into Mexico rattled there during 2010.

An incredible number of earthquakes (about 3,000) and earthquake swarms rattled along the Aleutian islands of Alaska (a chain of volcanoes), located along the northern Pacific Plate boundary. Nearly 1,500 of those earthquakes shook in one concentrated area about two-thirds the way down the chain, just off the tip of a tiny island named Samalga island. This location is by far the largest concentration of earthquakes on the planet during 2010.

About 135 earthquakes rumbled in Oklahoma, most of which were located just a few miles outside of Oklahoma City, near no apparent fault lines. One earthquake there was the second largest ever recorded in Oklahoma.
The most powerful earthquake in the United States during 2010 was a magnitude 6.5 which shook just off the northern California coast near Fortuna and Eureka, at the Pacific Plate boundary.
The most powerful earthquake in Europe occurred near Granada, Spain, a magnitude 6.0.
The European country with the most earthquakes was Greece, and just off its shores (about 50).
Very active regions always include the island chains of Indonesia, up to the Philippines, over to Papua New Guinea, and down the countless number of island chains of the South Pacific Ocean, again at the Pacific Plate boundary (about 3,000 total earthquakes).
The following image is an animation of world earthquakes of magnitude 5.0 and greater during 2010, differentiating those from magnitude range 5, 6, 7, and 8.


To summarize, the totals of all of the earthquake magnitude ranges from 5 on up, were way above average during the first three-quarters of the year. The last quarter has been slow and has lowered the average closer to normal (magnitude 7 is still quite high), while all categories (5 and up) remain above normal. It was a very active year.

2010's world gone wild: Quakes, floods, blizzards


December 20, 2010

This was the year the Earth struck back.

Earthquakes, heat waves, floods, volcanoes, super typhoons, blizzards, landslides and droughts killed at least a quarter million people in 2010 - the deadliest year in more than a generation. More people were killed worldwide by natural disasters this year than have been killed in terrorism attacks in the past 40 years combined.

"It just seemed like it was back-to-back and it came in waves," said Craig Fugate, who heads the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency. It handled a record number of disasters in 2010.

"The term '100-year event' really lost its meaning this year."

And we have ourselves to blame most of the time, scientists and disaster experts say. [ MYWAY NEWS ]

UK Motorists suffering Heavy Snow, Icy Roads
















From the Heathrow airport website, the fourth busiest airport in the world which normally moves about 200,000 people every day, “Heathrow Airport is not accepting any arrivals on Sunday, 19 December, and is managing a handful of departures”.

This winter, Great Britain has been experiencing the coldest and snowiest conditions it has seen in a very long time, in some cases since record keeping began. The UK Met Office website maps seem to be continuously colored orange with severe weather warnings while temperatures plummet and the ice and snow pile up.
What is the best survival advice for motorists traveling in snow, cold, or ice? The best advice is not to travel (sensible enough).

Traveling by car in such conditions will risk becoming stranded, or worse – an accident.

If stranded long enough without adequate heat, hypothermia may set in, resulting in a downward spiral beginning with uncontrollable shaking followed by clumsiness, apathy, confusion and slurred speech, and eventually a state of comatose and eventual death. Plan to stay warm.

  • Be wearing, or bring warm clothes, a winter jacket, hat, gloves, and proper shoes or boots. Most body heat escapes through the head, while your feet and hands will be first to numb.
  • Always have a mini survival kit in the vehicle containing at least some food and water (72 hour kits are becoming more commonplace)
  • Shovel – spade
  • Flashlight -torch
  • Ice scraper, de-icer fluid
  • Jumper cables
  • If you can fit it, some sand – salt – grit, in case you run off the road and your tires need some help with traction to get out. Strips of carpet placed in front of the driven tires (front wheel versus rear wheel drive) often works too.
  • A full tank of petrol

The ingredients of a good 72 hour kit will vary as widely as the number of people you ask. Take the time to plan and fill a backpack or bag with some bare essentials and tools, and tuck it away in your vehicle’s trunk for the day you hope you will never need it.

As long as the prevailing weather pattern remains, the UK and neighboring regions will continue to deal with unfamiliar travel conditions and precautions, not experienced in some peoples lifetimes.

South Korean military drills begin; the world awaits North Korean response




Contributed by Mort Amsel on 20 December 2010 06:22:21

South Korean troops Monday started a live-fire artillery exercise on a border island, the defence ministry said, despite threats by North Korea to hit back.

"The drill has started," a ministry spokesman told AFP.

An AFP photographer in a bunker on Yeonpyeong island confirmed he heard the sound of artillery.

It had threatened even deadlier retaliation if this week's drill went ahead, saying South Korean shells from such exercises regularly land in its waters.

What Did You Do To Prep This Week


I can’t believe how fast the days have went by this week – I guess that’s what happens when you are going all day, non stop trying to get things done.

But more about that later.

Before we start with what we did to prep this week, I’d like to thank Sheri in Indiana for sending a huge donation, I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw it in my paypal account. Thank you.

I would also like to thank Clay and Robin from Sharp’s Saddlery for donating one of their All-Purpose Custom Knives with Leather Sheath, nice custom work and sharp enough to shave.

As for prepping this week, as much as I hate to admit it I didn’t get a lot done. If you remember I mentioned several weeks ago that my girlfriends father was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

He has rapidly gotten worse since then - going from walking on his own to being totally immobile in only a few weeks. This is no way to die and it is difficult to understand why anyone would have to suffer so much.

My girlfriend has been by his side from the start, giving him full-time care and I can tell it has taken a toll on her both mentally and physically. If you believe in God and prayer, please remember them the next time you pray.

I’ve helped her all I can by going to her house and doing housekeeping and helping her with her son, so I haven’t had a lot of time to prep this week.

But as our motto here at The Survivalist Blog dot Net “do something – anything, big or small to prep each week” so keeping true to my own advice, I bought two 100 round packs of .22 Long Rifle CCI Mini-Mag for my Browning Buckmark.

I know it isn’t much but at least I did something, right. Hopefully, next week will be more productive prep wise.

What did you do to prep this week?

Excuse me !!! Ten years and counting. There is absolutely no reason out troops are there. The people and Government of Afghanistan do not want us there.
Our troops are fighting for each other and no other reason. Obama is wrong but as usual can’t seem to figure that out. Even if we’re there for another ten years what does he think the end game is. Our military is dieing and we are going broke. Is this so he can feel macho… How about put on the uniform and go into battle. That might make you feel macho. I have to ask all you Obama lover’s out there, really how many years do we have to be there before you say Obama was wrong. What a fucking waste….


How To Use Your Psychic Intuition To Solve Problems


Each one of us have intuition. And each one of us have problems. Wouldn’t it be great to deal with our problems with a little help from our higher mind that have access to psychic planes? It’s quite possible – and in this article, I’m going to teach you how to use your intuition to solve problems.

My Money Problems

Few months ago, when I moved with my fiancée to new flat, we had money problems – she was without work, and I was stressed a bit. I didn’t knew what to do, so I decided to ask my higher mind how to solve the problem of money. My higher mind – or intuition as others call it – told me with simples images and memories that I should relax, sit down, observe and worry not. So I did as my intuition told me – I had no idea why I did it, but I did.

Anyway, next week my fiancée found a job, at last – and all our problems were gone. This is just a simple example of how my intuition helped me deal with my problem. You can do this too – for every single issue in your life.

How To Use Psychic Intuition

The problem with using psychic intuition in case of most people is that their minds aren’t quiet enough. When you listen to loud music, it’s hard to hear someone talking to you. Therefore, in order to use your psychic intuition, you must first put your mind at peace. And I’m not saying about meditation – meditation is something else. I’m talking more of shutting up :).

In order to do so, follow these steps:

  • First, close your eyes – because you will be able to focus better this way.
  • Calm down – stop worrying, stop thinking, just focus on the darkness in front of your eyes.
  • Relax - don’t worry, don’t move, breath deeply, and wait for it.

Calming down is the first step in seeking answers on your higher psychic mind. The next step requires a little bit more explanation.

Imagination and Memories

I already talked how clairvoyance and other forms of Extra-Sensory Perception uses your memories to give you psychic information. Imagination is another element - your brain is using objects, people and scenes from your memory, and it put its together with help of imagination into new image. Paying attention to memories and images you see, things you “hear” inside your head, is a path towards picking up psychic information.

Yes, this can be used in psychic readings or psychometry as well. But let’s focus on dealing with problems. When your mind is relaxed as I instructed, just:

  • Pay attention – observe the images inside your head.
  • Interpret - and when you receive them, interpret them. How do they relate to the problem you have, or the question you asked, or the answer you seek?

That’s it – you’ve asked your psychic intuition for help, and you received it through psychic impressions. What you will do next, is your choice. You can listen to your intuition, or not.

Whenever you have a problem, relax, close your eyes and seek answers through your higher mind. The answers are there. And imagine how many questions you may ask – about family problems, relationship, business, work, or even spiritual growth. There are countless possibilities.

Applying The Knowledge Further

This knowledge can be also used in general ESP – psychic reading or psychometry for example. Observing the images in front of your eyes, inside your head, is the path of perceiving information via psychic impressions. Keep this in mind. Also, the more you practice with psychic intuition for yourself, the more effective your psychic mind will become of other ESP skills, like mentioned psychometry.

Consider this, as “cold practice” :).

Do you use psychic your intuition to solve your problems? Do you often ask your higher mind of advices?
