THE OCCULT HISTORY OF 5G, AND DO-ABLE, AFFORDABLE WAYS TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR LOVED ONES

“Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” – Ephesians 2:2 

5GNicolaT_300p In the verse above, the disciple Paul identifies Lucifer as the ruler of the airwaves. By word-of-mouth, information has always travelled. Who is not familiar with the childhood game of Gossip, in which a group sits in a circle, and one person is chosen to think of a sentence, and while covering their mouth with their hands, in a hushed breath of air whispers their thought into the ear of their neighbor, who has been instructed to ‘keep a pokerface’. One-by-one, the message transmitted is passed from mouth-to-ear, until it returns to the ear of the person who began the transmission. We all remember what happens next: they repeat what was told to them after their original message traveled, and reveal what it was when it started – and it’s always different! Everyone laughs, some may be embarrassed or shamed, but always, the truth of the original message became a fiction fabricated by the collective imaginations of the hearers. Even smoke signals are less deceiving than this! In tropical regions, this is actually called “the coconut telegraph“!

5GEffectsFrequenciesSteiner1924_470p When the Gutenberg printing press was invented, and then affordable, privately owned presses, suddenly the written word took the same form at the gossip game, but worse: it fell under the influence of those in power, and at a rate unequalled in humanity’s history (that we know of still, for it is quickly revealing in these days), exerted influence upon the minds of humans gained more footholds. The telegraph coupled with the power of steam used in the new industries of railroads and steamships both freight and luxury, and then planes made the gossip circle broader. The turn of the last century ushered in books, magazines and journals of all kinds, all mass distributed.

RadarRangeMicrowaveVintageAd And then radio was invented… the governing entities with their regulatory bodies (who had already created the central banking system) cut up the airwaves like cake, and for fees, allocated usage rights amongst the ‘bands’: the bandwidth frequencies. Westernized cultures changed altogether, united by the mesmerization of the programs and the news from the (never ending) wars, and when radio became a part of life, that was World War I. The elite-orchestrated fall of the financial markets hit, and the Dust Bowl famine (like so many whirling dervishes), and unbeknownst to most, this: in the 1930’s, television had already been invented by the Germans and was in use there to condition and program the people to embrace the political program which led to the acceptance of all that became World war II and the Holocaust. The signals embedded in the television frequencies were embedded with sorceric imagery, and the extra-low frequency waves were designed for mind kontrol (control is spelled with a ‘k’ in German). This is how the nation was used to turn humans against humans, making them kill as beasts do. This is how the atrocities were accomplished, and how good people were influenced to destroy one another in choices they were manipulated into making, detached from hearing their souls.

GWEN_ExplainedWithImgs400p After the United States ‘won’ [sic] the war, top-level Nazi scientists and researchers were brought over in Operation Paperclip. The doctors who designed the mind kontrol program went on to establish MK Ultra. The television was fraudulently reconceptualized and patented as an American invention, and the PROGRAMMING on the radio waves became the television programming. Already, there was Hollywood’s films in theaters, and films and film strips used by the controller’s arms of education, churches, government offices and science in society, but television was so affordable that the brainwashing happened daily in one’s own living room. (And for families who couldn’t afford it were ‘credit-building finance programs’ making it possible to buy a TV and pay in installments, O the American Dream!)

So here we are now, with devices and apps and biosensors, the AI and the Internet not only of Things, but EVERYTHING. The beast is embedded in the technology itself.

5Geffects_WORDYbigMEME420p The reason for the mini-history lesson is to underscore the longstanding succession of the so-called advances in communication the prince of darkness uses to entrap and enslaves humans within what has come to be known as the matrix. Each computer device used has a unique hardware number, and connects via an internet protocol IP address which puts the person using the device mappable, regardless if location is in the settings of the device is enabled or not. Even with sophisticated VPN use, the ultimate internet backbone, DARPA, knows exactly where the user is physically located, to the point of drone target ability. Most phones now are 4Gigahertz microwaves transmission, and many are 5G. The towers and transponders being implemented all over the face of the earth – except for two exceptions: the country of Israel and the town of Mira Lago, Florida, the POTUS’s home – are actually GWEN Towers. G.W.E.N. stands for ground wave emergency network. These extra-low microwave range frequencies are military weapons for crowd control, and, if aimed, can activate nanotechnology within the human body, ultrasonic ringing in the ears, V2K (voice to skull) thought interference and implantation, can cause pain, muscle spasms, heart attacks and death. Human beings are being electronically cattle-prodded into death chutes on every level of existence: mental, physical, psychological and spiritual. In the recent Paradise, California fires, satellite and drone DEWS – direct energy weapons – were used to control swarms of nanobots that targeted homes, shops and businesses but left untouched the surrounding land, controlled by the prince of the air to depopulate the area for the satanic agenda.

Here is the United States Patent using ELF microwave frequencies for the weather manipulation warfare against humanity and earth, heartfelt thanks to Luca G. for sending to me ❤

THE REAL REASON FOR 5G IS TO KEEP OUR FREQUENCY LOW AND STOP US FROM ASCENDING– click to read that post from last year

5G_CellBeamingMansFaceTowersBehind333p Now this matrix control grid and the Spacefence are set to attempt to completely control all souls. With the return of The Destroyer here in this Fig Tree Generation in what we know is the prophesied Tribulation, not only do the workers of iniquity and darkness want to control the world’s populations as societies collapse, but with the 5G grid extending upward to the firmament of the impassable dome the Most High created, the Luciferian plan is to prevent souls from ascending. Health care practitioners in USA and Europe are now reporting that patients are complaining of health problems they have never had before, including anxiety, insomnia, depression, growing unresponsiveness to medications, ADHD, stroke, and high blood pressure. These symptoms clear up when WiFi routers are removed and digital device use is minimized, shielded or eliminated. 5G, when fully implemented, will have nodes every ten to twelve housing units, installed at bedroom windows. This is already in place. The following is a list of things you can do to optimize your health and minimize risk and damage. DEW Photo with ID
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO MINIMIZE THE 5G EFFECTS AND OPTIMIZE YOURS SOUL’S RETURN TO THE CREATOR JEHOVAH

  • If you don’t already, begin drinking distilled water only, so the light signals within your cells transmit as designed, for unless only pure water, which is one Hydrogen atom and paired with two Oxygen atoms and no more, our very organs become the filters, causing organs to prematurely age and fail
  • Eat foods that will begin to carry heavy metals from your body, which include wheat grass, cilantro, spirulina and blue-green algae, seeds (hemp, flax, pumpkin) and nuts (almonds!) and antioxidant-rich foods
  • Before bedtime, have either DE (diatomaceous earth), BC (bentonite clay) or powdered charcoal with 12-16 ounces distilled water to bind and carry out the heavy metals being removed from your body
  • Wear Shungite jewelry, and place Shungite shields on your internet devices, keep Organite in your environment, and especially by your bed when sleeping
  • Do not keep an electric clock or any electric devices near your bed
  • Use a Faraday Cage around your bed, which could easily be metal window screen on the floor below, on the ceiling above, and at each side. A canopy bed is excellent for doing this
  • Be sure your mattress, box spring, rails and bed frame are free of any metal or springs.
  • When sleeping (if possible) turn off the circuit breaker(s) that power your bedroom and adjacent rooms, including rooms above and below the bedroom, to create a sphere of reduced electric field exposure levels within 1 – 2 meters around your bed at night in all directions, even above and below you, and on the other side of the wall by your bed.
  • Never keep a cellphone on your body or in a purse hanging by your side, and stop using laptops and pads on your lap. Set them on desk, at least 2-3′ from your torso and head
  • Use a hard-wired-from-the-pole Cat5 modem and router instead of WiFi – no matter how much your internet service provider pesters you to “Upgrade For Better Performance” – ALL HUMANS ARE EMF-SENSITIVE
  • Disable WiFi in devices when you are not using them, and if possible, power off and remove the battery, and shield yourself from their built-into-the-circuitry satellite detection biometric data sensors by keeping them in a metal tin or box when not in use
  • Move all electric power cords that carry 120 volts as far away from your feet as possible, including surge protectors and inline or clip-on transformers. This reduces electric field exposure. Surge protectors also usually have several transformers plugged into them, which are considered “point sources” of magnetic field exposure that extend up to two to three feet
  • LED lights are also dangerous: this is called LiFi, where undetected by the human eye the signal is modulated by ELF (extra low frequencies) for mind control: minimize all LED exposure, use blackout curtains, put black electric tape over light-emitting diodes on the things in your home and car
  • The magnetic ballast of a fluorescent light fixture will damage the organs of anyone in the room above it, as well as below, so pay attention to where children sleep
  • Do not use baby monitors, they emit excessive microwave radiation (as well as open portals for demons)
  • If you can, do not have a smart meter on your home. If it must be there, put a smart meter shield over it
  • Don’t use cellphones, Bluetooth or satellite radio in the car. The vehicle is an electromagnetic frequency resonance chamber and will concentrate the damage to all inside the vehicle, and this is especially damaging to pregnant mothers, infants and children
  • Eliminate wheat, white potatoes, pasta and sugar from your diet – and it is a process, but gradually stop eating all factory-made processed foods, since all of these contain nanotechnology added to the ingredients: the FDA does not have to list it, and it is in everything
  • Heavy metals, molds and yeasts create the network which heavy metals and nanotechnology attach to and utilize to make the human body a living 5G antenna, so begin to focus on eating GMO-free probiotics you make yourself, like the fermented cabbage juice cleanse, miso paste soup, kimchee and other fermented fruits, vegetables and kombucha – food is your medicine and you can grow it and make it at home
  • Begin to take a Detox Nanobath daily: to a tub of the hottest water you can stand, add 1-4 cups each of Epsom Salts and Borax (the kind from the box whose label hasn’t changed!), and on alternating days add also either a cup of Pink Himalayan Salt or a cup of baking soda. Targeted Individuals swear by this: I began this bath in late 2015, and began teaching others on my now-archived Facebook group in 2017. (Bye Bye Blue Skies adopted it and cut the ratios down, reducing the effectiveness.) When I began, I did this bath thrice daily, and now only once a week – after four years. So much nanotechnology released from my skin that it looked like crystalline sand from a bathing suit after a day at the beach, the first year and a half I did it! Moisturize with coconut oil while your skin is still damp
  • Alkalize your body and diet by adding citrus juice to your water (lemon, lime, orange), ACV (apple cider vinegar), and do your best to maintain an alkaline diet, as the nanotechnology – including the chemtrail fibers – are designed to thrive in acidic environments, which the Western diet and lifestyle create and promote
  • Wear only natural fibers and avoid metallic and chemical dyes – and this includes tattoos – stop getting them
  • Do not use hair, skin or household products, nail polishes, artificial nails, hair dyes – use what Jehovah made
  • Brush teeth with hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and diatomaceous earth, and look into oil pulling

This is just a short list for now, but it’s a start. Even if you apply a quarter of the suggestions here, you are going to see a difference, especially regarding device exposure, nutrition and shielding. Remember, 5G is a control grid weapon, we are the targets, and you need to do all you can to minimize the ability to place your body in their sites. if you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me, so that we can all work together to make everyone liberated with the truth.

Namasté.

Plain Truth Bombshell. MUST READ.

Although it has allowed for dissemination of so much information, I have come to the conclusion that the World Wide Web is just that: the net to trap humans. As we know that the electromagnetic shift is coming, it is best to cut the cord of it from your self. I removed it from my home and now will interact with it only randomly and sporadically,  not unlike as depicted in the Matrix movie. As a matter of fact, that is an extremely apt way to understand how we need to proceed now, since we are actually dimensional projections of ourselves in this third dimension that we are in; about to shift into the fourth. And while we may be convinced that we are in obedience to all that the Most High requires of us, and doing our utmost to not only be ascension-ready spiritually but physically. See my posts on ascension clothing and fasting, and heavy metal detox, and frequencies as well as cymatics and the matrix prison we are in – and OH, Tartarus!

So let me assure you, this kind of disconnection from the web – the octopus – is difficult at first. It’s an addiction. Again, I emphasize the way it’s described in the movie. Like a submarine underwater escaping detection, they had only limited and very dangerous opportunities to escape the clone reality trapping them. Detaching from it was/is perilous and required random movements and intelligent maneuvers. Granted, we are all in a sea of millimeter waves, bathed in frequencies designed to control and kill us. We mediate and protect as we can. (I hear them more, actually, now that I am offline literally, feeding my artificial intelligence clone of myself as little as humanly possible – literally.) And my last foray with the internet from home was hardwired, yet still they did all they could to surveillance and influence me. Constant denial of service attacks (have a look at my real-time complaints of that on my @EatingToAscend twitter feed), completely hosed bandwidth, logons, uploads, downloads, and constant modem resets, DNS flushing, etc. All that while using a Proton VPN! Ridiculous!

Finally, I decided that Satan, the Prince of the Airwaves, was having a field day setting traps for me and that it was all a waste of my time, since basically I just need updates at this point, as the understanding of truth is within me a form foundation set rightly by the Most High, and His Son.

So here I am popping in to touch base with you my family, my friends, my brethren, and exhort you to do the same.

Also, I want to share that I have been attending Conservative Mennonite services the last few weeks. Their highly intellectual teaching is not contradicted by the truths we know and discuss here, and by others I respect, although I may not always agree on all points with them, but such is the way of truthseeking: Graham Hancock, Steve Quayle, Max Spiers, Gary Wayne, Anthony Patch, Dave Dobbs, Zen Garcia, Donald Marshall, Aug Tellez, Terral Croft… I could go on…
and…
Yesterday, I sat with one of the church deacon and explained to him (and his wife and mother, all Mennonite family background to the 1500’s) the realities I know – we know – that they did not: GMOs, glyphosate and atrazine, pharmakeia and the medical industry, 5G, heavy metals and vaccines, nanotechnology in the air/food/water/medicines/etc, geoengineering dimming the sun and stopping photosynthesis, the biochemical agenda of transhumanism, that all the things in water/air/foods/medicines/products made are biotechnical highest order witchcraft, the fact that Lyme disease is a bioweapon created by the military on Plum Island (his wife has it too, like me she too was left untreated by doctors – it’s a conspiracy to kill us the health/death industry conspires with), and artificial intelligence, the InternetOfThings and algorithms taking over humanity to cause its end. Or try to. And that was just a start over the course of ninety minutes or so.
We agreed that God is in charge and Lucifer will not win.

I expect to have some questions coming to me! I honestly am just so blessed that the Most High has opened this door for truth – plain or otherwise! – to enter through. Please pray for this.

Space Flame Power and Might

THE CROSSING OF NIBIRU NOW, RED OXIDE, AND APOSTACY CAUSED BY WITCHCRAFT

Let me just hypothesize at the outset that the red oxide produced by #Nibiru and electromagnetically activated by both the event occurring itself as well as the #5G #SpaceFence and implemented ground level transponders is reacting with humankind’s already-diminished #sixthsense – our #God-self, so to speak , our #spiritual nature – to effect the #apostacy needed for the collapse of this organic system of species and the earth to achieve the result the #Anunnaki #fallen #angel #illuminati #elite #Vatican #NWO #world #government have been working toward since landing on Mount Hermon. Of course, that predates #Enki and #Enlil’s spat (and expulsion to/becoming Nibiru), #Marduk’s tantrums…

“The things that are seen are temporary, the things that are not seen are the things that endure.” – Paul of Tarsus

Now do you get why they are literally hell-bent on taking our God Helmet off?

This post is going to keep you busy for a few hours, so make some tea and get down with it…

There’s a lot going on, more than I have time to address, so I apologize in advance for the brevity of written content buttressing the topics I present in this #blogpost. If other things do not take precedence, or, as I complete them, in due time there will be follow-up posts, as these issues are not transitory, and are absolutely relevant. These currently pressing issues diluting workflow focus include my now-7,500+ word reply to the video recently made by Matt of Quantum of Conscience entitled Your Soul vs. The System – A Comprehensive Summary of Everything I Have Learned , which I need to finish ASAP, as Matt’s put out another video already, and, in addition to the events unfolding in this realm, unless I finish that response, an “a-ha moment” opportunity might be lost (and I don’t want that, I need all the help I can get in reaching other souls in this #GreatCommission).

Dr. Claudia Albers PHD physicist and Nibiru researcher, wonders why Nibiru has not already affected earth more, or in her words, destroyed it, check out this video (this one was posted a day earlier). Dr Claudia Albers' Question

Steve Olson of WSO put out two successive videos on the cracked magnetosphere made visible by the NASA G.O.E.S. satellite, which he giftedly – and I mean it, for he is a gift through his watching – interprets for us. Go ahead and watch them both as well.

Earth Magnetosphere TORN UP on DARK SIDE OF EARTH – August 27th

Dark Side Geomagnetic Storm Hits Ground — Norway – August 28th

So, assuming you’ve now taken the time to watch these videos (which, sadly, few will, if any, I know, but I will still speak the truth; Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear. – Mark 4:9), let’s now mention a few other things, like, say, the earthquake in Oregon at the Cascadian Subduction Zone last week, the Ring Of Fire on fire right now, the sun setting in the northwest not west, two and three suns setting, sea life beaching, birds dropping from the skies, UVC radiation at insane levels, unreported-by-the-media tsunamis, dust storms, droughts, hurricanes…
In the town I live in, the crows keep dying, and their dead bodies and feathers are everywhere. This has picked up suddenly; just the last two weeks.

DuststormPhoenix2Aug2018

And the ever-increasing proliferation of the zombification of the people – and this includes my own children :’-0

Tavistock sure is effective  APOSTACY CAUSED BY WITCHCRAFT

I just got back (or this post would have been done hours ago) from having a (perfectly legal during posted hours) walk with a friend I volunteer with around a local “nature center” where we were just basically ambushed by police who, when I asked why they had come to investigate us on the trail said that they were called in to “make sure we were not kids who would fool around and hide behind the water pumps”. Water pumps?
The gentlemen (one of the two was at least cordial and polite, so I am being kind here) went on to describe the proximity of the ‘park’ (this place) to the treatment plant. So putting two and two together quickly, one can see how concern exists for “safety”… And all we wanted to do was hike a bit in woods on trails (and for my part, to try to get away from the unasked-for WiFi drowning for awhile). Sheesh.

So I get back home and hear a rumbling, and this circled closeby for 10-15 minutes…
not a warm fuzzy.

Probably the last time I visit THAT place. It’s too close to the 30-40 5G transponders on the very closeby H20 tower anyway. Why bathe in that voluntarily? Also, this ‘friend’ (I know so few people here) resolutely defends the very systems which are killing us. He calls himself a christian yet thinks money and artificial intelligence are good things.  n he described to me how his google robot asks him when he wants to wake up in the morning, and it is his alarm and wakes him up with Fox News, saying good night (his name) and good morning (his name)… when I tried to explain who owns the news, the facts, well, shall we say my words would have been better received by the box turtle I saw near the path we were walking on? I just shut the fuck up at that point and headed for home.
Where does one begin! 
I think I’m down both a park and a friend. Excellent! Less time to waste!

Global 5G WIFI Will Be INESCAPABLE – What You NEED To Know!

A lovely thought, isn’t it. That the ruling elite are quite literally immersing us in Ultra Low Frequency (ULF) millimeter waves, for the purpose of controlling us, because our awareness of our own innate sovereignty as spiritual beings makes us, true-to-human/GOD-genetics people, their enemy.

If you are a targeted individual, as I am, you will appreciate the letter email I wrote this morning to my SO with whom morning greetings frame the beginning of our days. Yesterday afternoon, I underwent a sudden psycho/spiritual attack, and reached out to him. And Tarbash is from the Jerky Boys, for us a fun thing, almost a secret language, lol…

Thanks, I did sleep well enough. Considering yesterday’s sudden assault. I know you know gangstalking is real and targeting happens to others as you see on videos, but when we talk and I tell you in real time what happens to me, you ask other questions, as if it couldn’t be that. I will praise GOD (like I did yesterday, for your finally realizing the truths I have been showing you, up to all AFCLU says, and FE, Garcia, Kleck, and the entire Wormwood/Revelation ball-o-wax) will be the day you stop second-guessing/looking for “logical explanations” for what is MKUltra targeting is in my life. As Tarbash says, “Stop that!”

Looking at the last few weeks of my days, I have been decidedly focused and productive. There IS no precedent for what happened yesterday. It was orchestrated. I was FINE – until it happened. If you had ever read survivor accounts, you would see the similitude to mine. Again, please just stop trying to rationalize it. I hadn’t even been planning on writing my children. I was futzing with darn MailChimp and waiting for my brother. Period. The music was not to my taste, but interesting, in a distant way. I didn’t know you enjoyed stuff like that. I had recalled hearing slide on blues albums in my hippie days, and at bars like No Fish (that was before your time). I bet there are many really lovely examples of the use of slide – the way YOU play it – that one can find. Or I will just, if GOD WILLS IT, make the sounds in your presence (and HIS). Proof of how fine I was is that I was able to deal with what YOU were going through as you were being spiritually and EMF sonically attacked in a non-reactive way, making what would have been a destructive outcome (what Satan wants) better, as God wants and what should be. Hence your writing back yesterday morning, “Thank you for your perseverance”, after you wanted to shut off all human social interaction for the next 3-4 months. Like the point I made yesterday, you wouldn’t do that to a dog, lock it away in the basement in a box, while it heard the rest of the house – and the other dog – upstairs. That is more cruel than killing it. So why would one do that to one’s self? It MAKES NO SENSE. You wouldn’t. This comes, therefore, from Satan, and his agencies.

Another proof that this is remote (drone/satellite/5G/ Communications companies and its multitudinous IOT, 4G and 5G nodes and repeaters) neural monitoring and EMF torture .is that I will wake up suddenly with a completely foreign thought or emotion, which I displace with prayer. Then when I DO wake up (naturally, usually), in the morning, there is more what I call “network traffic” for them, and it takes a minute or two before the ringing in both ears, which is always different, and up to five tones, begins. As if they are noticing my alpha waves pick up. You KNOW they work from sophisticated labs with banks of that equipment. That’s when it begins for me, in earnest. I am but one of many targets. In my case, I have the distinction of having ruffled the CIA’s feathers in 1976-1977 during my senior year at C—–ville High, refusing to join the CIA. They had me in the principal’s office FIVE TIMES, (and I lost count on how many times they called our house on weekday evenings). That poor man looked like he was helpless. He looked afraid. Myself, I had no idea what “they” really did. Look what interference they ran and run on my life. Now with 5G, it’s all of us, in their depopulation race for time against Christ Jesus. You can bet there are people in military and medical uniforms well as civilian clothes paid full time with American tax dollars watching all our EEGs and EKGs, our emails, calls, all online activity, with technologies and things that most have NO idea exist, but which, still, are discussed in research papers and found in patent searches…

So I listened to 963, 528 and 432 hz music all night long and feel much better. Woke up once to pee (am drinking 3 gallons distilled daily), and put a second track on, this is it, it’s just finishing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFiJHpdQCdk.

I am not letting the bastards keep me down. It, however, is very daunting, since we understand CERN is running, and WHY it’s running, to open the demonic portals and let the disembodied spirits have at it on this world, as well as to put the third strand Lucifer DNA in to all of us. I put an interview from the Press For Truth channel on my blog before going to sleep, and will add to it after sending this. Have a look at the image, too.

So, good morning! I love you! It’s not raining, lol =) I hope that you slept well too. My cell is still on, if you would like to call one more time before it goes off. It’ll be a good talk. Promise. <3<3

You last night:

I’d kind of forgotten that I can listen on the internet instead of (or in addition to) reading.
About ready to lie down for the night. I love you. Sleep well.

Me last night:

Listening to Enoch, here.

(End of email.)
