2012 – Everybody Knows ”There is something wrong Here”.
http://annabrixthomsen.com/2012/02/23/e ... rong-here/

Have you ever as a child had the experience that something is utterly wrong in the world that you just can’t put your finger on? The experience of there is something that not is what it is supposed to be? Most children have this experience and I did as well. In this article I expand and give perspective on what this experience is and what it reveals of ourselves, the world and existence in its entirety.This point came up as I was listening to this amazing interview and I decided to look further into it.

Primarily it was a ‘gut-feeling’ of there being something wrong, a feeling that I could not verbalize or explain, as it engulfed my entire body and my experience of the world. It was as an all-encompassing feeling that wrapped itself around me and I experienced a constant, yet suppressed uncomfortability within and as myself. The best way to still describe it is simply that ”there is something wrong here” as though I was in a dream that seemed so real, yet I knew I was sleeping somehow.

But it was also a direct seeing of there being something wrong. As a child I never understood why wars existed or why people were starving. And I thought about the wars and people starving, and the children on the other side of the world that did not have any food or clothes and who could not go in school because they had to work or carry water over long distances. I felt with them as they too were in my world, a part of my world – they were right here. I saw them as neighbors or friends that I had not met yet and I simply could not understand why they were suffering. Initially it was such an experience of innocence, no blame or judgment or anger, merely curiosity and not understanding why this could exist.

See, I believed that the world was in order. I believed that the adults of the world were taking care of the world. After all they often told me that I was too young to understand, that I should not worry about it. When I expressed my sympathy for the children in Africa or South America or India, adults would look at me with an overbearing look, in somewhat tired and dead eyes as though what I had expressed was stupid and naïve. Only now do I realize that there was shame in their eyes too. Shame because I was expressing the reality of what is here, shame because they had given up on caring.

I remember how hopeful I was a child, how I loved the world and everyone in it. I was sure that there had be a simply solution to war; that people simply could stop fighting with each other and I did not understand why they did not.

The experience of there being something wrong grew as I grew older, as I discovered that adults lie and don’t keep their promises, as I saw how they would say one thing with their mouth yet their eyes and bodies spoke differently.

I experienced everyone around me, as the adults from whom I learned what the world was and how I was to live and place myself within it, as sad, angry and tired as they rushed to keep appointments and pay bills. It did not make any sense to me. Adults would rather sit and talk and drink wine or coffee than to play and move their bodies and explore.

As I got older, the experience of their being something wrong started becoming more personal and more intense. I started to experience fear as well. When I was around eight years old, my general experience of the world can best be described as “flat”. It was as though I was walking around in a cardboard version of the world, an image or a two dimensional version of a three dimensional reality. Yet it remained an experience that I eventually internalized into believing that there was something wrong with me, that I just wasn’t “feeling it” right.

After all, I saw everyone around me looking like they had fun, and no matter what I saw within them as their actual experience of themselves, no one ever expressed that and therefore I came to believed that there was something wrong with me, I was “too sensitive”, I must be “seeing it wrong”.

Slowly but surely my hope for humanity, the world and myself was chipped off, piece by piece, through the personal experiences I went through of disillusionment and disappointment .

I ended up realizing that if I wanted to be part of the world and to have a shot at making a life for myself (at that time defined through having friends and being liked by other children) I had to accept that this was what the world was. The world was real and right and I was wrong.

I was and have throughout my life been one of those people, of whom we are most that did not trust my own gut-feeling. After all what could I have done? Talking about it would have no effect. Screaming and yelling and refusing to participate would have no effect.

After events in my personal life, where I realized that I had absolutely no power over myself, that adults could not be trusted in any way whatsoever and that I had no way of living a different life, I gave up. I gave up on the world, on adults and I gave up on myself.

Throughout my childhood, until this moment, I had been very physical; expressing myself through running, biking, climbing and doing gymnastics, but what I did when I gave up was that I literally curled up in a big chair and retracted into myself. I started watching TV and I would sit for hours fantasizing about how my life could be different if I was someone else. I started day dreaming as well, where I would dream about a boy that would come and save me from my life-situation, whisk me away and that I would finally get to live the happy life that I was supposed to.

This point of daydreaming became a ritual in my life, where I before I fell asleep would fantasize about a different life, a life with opportunities and happiness. I slowly started seeing myself as different, special and not like everyone else. I saw everyone else participating with ease in social gatherings, in friendships, in love relationships, in sports and I simply could not participate without feeling that it was all fake. I started hating the world, myself and everyone around me. I did not give a shit about anything or anyone.

For years I refused to participate in the system, blaming the system for its fakeness and flatness, while in secret and silence desperately desiring to be “a part of” the world, the friendship groups, the drive towards living and succeeding and “making it in life”. But I believed that I could not. I believed that there was something fundamentally wrong with me, because I kept experiencing that there was something wrong, that it was not real.

I decided that I had to socialize myself to be able to participate effectively in my world and my reality. So I would observe others and how they smiled, talked and behaved. I would observe how the people that everyone liked were perceive by others and slowly but surely I molded myself into someone that I could at least learn to live with. I practiced eloquence, timing, which movements to make when, when something was inappropriate to say (many trials and errors) and eventually after many years, I finally found myself in a somewhat comfortable position.

I had a group of friends, I had “love-relationships”, I had “a life” and I started to believe that I was “getting somewhere in life”. I also started to become interested in where we come from, why we are here and what the meaning of life is. Because even after all this molding of myself to fit into the image of someone others would want to live with, even after having chiseled away at all the parts of me that did not fit it, I still experienced that there was something utterly wrong.

When I found spirituality everything started to make sense, from the perspective that what we learn in spirituality is that everything does in fact exist for a reason. And so this became my belief – because it was the only option to keep away the lingering experience and feeling of total meaninglessness. And in the spiritual beliefs, I could incorporate my daydreams in “visualizations” and imagine for myself a savior, a god, another realm. I imagined, together with everyone else participating in spirituality, that we were on this amazing journey through the universe, that the essence of existence was divine love and that everything that was on earth, be it suffering or abuse, too was a part of that divine love. I started to believe that suffering was in fact not suffering at all and that it was merely within the limits of my personalized human eyes that suffering was in fact suffering.

When there was something I could not understand in spirituality, I blamed myself and believed that it was because I had not evolved enough, that I was not enlightened enough – and just like parents tell their children that they will learn when they get older, so did I believe that I simply had to keep visualizing, even though I saw darkness when I closed my eyes.

It is not clear to me that I was walking through a process of increasing delusion and further separating and disconnecting myself from what is here. This was evident within how I stopped caring about the people on the other side of the world, how I no longer saw or considered them to be “right here” as my neighbors in life, but now only saw them sporadically appearing on my TV-screen, where they seemed like distant characters in a movie or through I the plots and stories I conjured up about how starving people were actually really enlightened souls that had taken on a life-challenge. Through this belief, I could justify for myself why suffering exist, in such a way that I could push it even further away, not having it as any part of my life or existence – placing it in such a way, that I did not even had to look at it, because according to my beliefs “all is where they should be”.

From not caring or giving a shit, I went to the opposite polarity where I still did not give a shit, but in a self-righteous (and even politically correct) way.

Eventually I went as far as I could with spirituality – which is ironically not very far as one keep spinning the same lies in new ways – and I got frustrated because I did not change. No matter what I did, I could not escape myself or get away from myself. I kept being the “same old me” no matter how much I visualized myself as someone, somewhere else. No matter how many books I read or how many psychics I visited, I did not get any closer to understanding why we are here or where we are going.

I had had enough. And then I found Desteni. Finally, for the first time in my entire life, someone was actually speaking the truth about what is actually here and who we are in fact. That we have created a delusional reality based on our mind’s eyes of separation and competition, believing we must fight each other to survive. That we have created a deceptive system, where everyone pretends that all is fine in the world, while everyone knows its not.

Every single word made sense and it was as if the voice from within me that I had suppressed my entire life was finally speaking up, from these beings; these beings that was facing themselves in self-honesty and through self-forgiveness, supporting themselves to change.

I finally started understanding that my gut-feeling had been right all along and that I had allowed myself to be indoctrinated and integrated into the very same system of lies and separation that I, as a child had seen to be unnecessary. I started realizing that I am too, self-responsible for all that it is here and that it is through my equal-and-one participation, through ignoring my gut-feeling and going along with the lie, that I have allowed this system of lies to continue.

Finally there is a forum, where people can meet and speak and see and face what is actually here as ourselves and as this world. Children do not have to be born into a world totally and completely in vain, where nothing makes any sense whatsoever, yet where everyone pretends that there is a divine order with everything.

STOP – SEE what is HERE and START PARTICIPATING in unveiling the world as ourselves, so that we can GET THIS DONE and bring ourselves to equilibrium where we for the first time can discover what LIFE is in-fact.

Join us at Desteni as we embark on the journey of all life-times, to bring ourselves back from separation and disconnected parts to wholeness, to the home that is, and have always been here.

2012 – The Dark Side of being a Modern Woman
http://annabrixthomsen.com/2012/02/25/2 ... ern-woman/

In this article we are going to once again reveal a Dark Side of 2012, of an emerging trend that at first glance appears to be positive, yet which exposes humanity’s true nature. We are here looking at what it means to be a modern woman.

”Class, race, sexuality, gender and all other categories by which we categorize and dismiss each other need to be excavated from the inside.” - Dorothy Allison

Countries like Sweden and Denmark are famous for being some of the most gender equal countries in the world, where the wage gap between men and women is the smallest and where women were the first to be sexually liberated and men take paternity leave. Lets look at a practical example of what the Scandinavian women have achieved in terms of gender equality:

A recent newspaper article[1] in a Danish paper exposed how female drivers are becoming more like men. Normally it is men that primary get into traffic accidents and who drive while under the influence, but cases were more females drive hazardous is increasing.

While female drivers are often ridiculed as being bad drivers, what is in fact happening is that women have started to drive more like men, at least when it comes to speed.

John Schalets and Jesper Sølund from the traffic safety council in Denmark explains that “It gets more and more common to see female drunk drivers as the gender equality develops.” They furthermore expand that and say that:

“We have to act faster and more efficient in today’s society and as women get a stronger placement in the business community, it is not so odd that they get a traffic behavior that resembles the males. We will probably start seeing women driving in bigger cars that are stronger and more powerful.”

The gender ‘equality’ is here defined as women being able to do and act as men does and in this case it is the male way of driving hazardously that is considered a sign of liberation of the female.

Now – it is interesting that what is being equated as ‘equality’ is merely ‘being the same as’ while the fact that what is ‘valued’ within this ‘equality’ is completely overlooked.

So that women are becoming more like men is seen as a good thing, a liberating thing, whiles the fact that who they are becoming is irrelevant and ignored. This is however not a debate about who is best, men or women, but it is about the misconception about what equality is. ‘

Equality basically means ‘the same in value’ – but the important emphasis is on the entire paragraph, that the value is the same. In this context above the emphasis is merely placed on being ‘the same’, while the value of the equality women has ‘reached’ is disregarded.

Women drive faster because they need to be more like men, perhaps because they want to be more like men and it is clear that if they want to make it in the business world they have to drive fast to get to where they want to be in the world. They can’t care for such petty points as traffic and consideration of others in the traffic as that would merely slow them down. They need stronger and bigger cars so that they too can show off their wealth and status, exactly like the men does.

What values are implied here? And even more so, what exactly is it that is equal here? That we are all equal in being assholes? Is that a value in itself? That women are now able to be assholes too?

This is not even about men or women, but about the personality characteristics that have come to shape the definition of an effective and successful human being. This means that men are equally striving to become ‘a man’, a man that does whatever it takes to get the job done, a man that is willing to risk life and limbs for that career and this is how we measure the pinnacle of a successful life.

Why is it a good thing that women are driving more like men and consequently killing more people in traffic accidents? Is that the kind of ‘equality’ we want? Is that the equality women have been striving for? It appears so.

It seems like the classic bully in the school yard or the psychopath in the corner office have become the standard ideal for everyone to achieve, women and men alike.

Everyone wants to be the winner of the world, but those very few who actually stand in such positions of power, money and influence are doing so by standing on the backs of everyone else.

The capitalistic system in which we live is patriarchal from the perspective of it being values associated with being a male that is predominant. Males have learned generation after generation to march in tact as they walk firmly with a tunnel vision towards the ultimate goal of success, power and money. It is not who they really are and it is not who women really are either, but this ideal stereo type is what is dominating our societies. So as women become “liberated”, all they are liberated to is to be and act like men and first and foremost: make money.

In the course of what has been called the “liberation of women”, women were told that they in their newfound freedom would be able to live independently and live the live they choose. They can get abortions, be CEO’s or whatever they want to, as long as they remain within the ideal of what a real man either wants or is.

Traditional female features such as ‘empathy’ and ‘care’ are in equivalent of positions in the job market, still the lowest paying jobs. Mothers that work at home in making food and cleaning AFTER coming home from their job as CEO’s or lawyers or politicians, are still not getting paid or even credited for their double labor. Instead one is expected and is expecting of oneself, to be able to do it all, all at once.

It is a race to the finish line of a perfect career, body, house, kids and husband and the real truth is that that life doesn’t exist, for anyone. It simply doesn’t exist. A modern woman is thus a man – and not even that, is the projection of the characteristics of what a man supposedly is.

If equality means “the same in value” it is the value that determines what that equality is. What this means is that we require reconsidering what it is we have given value as being that all should be the same as.

The ‘equality’ as same-in-valueness that is presented in the patriarchal system in is predomination of the world is what creates wars, hunger, rape, porn and deceptive politics. It is through this that we as humans allow ourselves to justify why we are depleting the world of its resources and nurture and why we are forcing extinction on the animals.

It is not an equality that is best for all life. What is best for all life has nothing to do with gender. And if we as women (and men) SEE that a change is required in humanity and as such in ourselves to what is best for all, we got to stop trying to become like men, as they are presented in the world and start trusting ourselves to actually live in a way that is best for all.

In this text by Jack an extended perspective is given as support for why women have tried to become like men, showing the redundancy of that and that this is definitely not what equality is about.
”Soon after the creation of man, women were told that men were the ‘stronger sex’. They appeared more muscular, athletic and well put together, able to do physical task with ease. Now millions of years later we have the most fascinating manifestations within the role of the woman coming forward. Firstly I would like to congratulate woman on behaving as if men have power over them, when in actuality nobody does.

I realize that you have been taught from a young age to bow down to men, but is it really who you are? Are you equality or are you slaves? So what I see when I look at woman has been my endless point of amusement for the last couple of weeks as I seek to understand what it is you’re doing.

Many women are currently busy with the application and manifestation of greed. Once men are out of the way a woman will steamroll others in her path to ‘get to the top’. This of course is my reference to the working class lady who has taken the micky out of dominating the work force, done by steam rolling everybody that dares put a foot in their direction.

Men understand that woman rule all over the capitalist work place and are dearly missing the days when their rule was final. Women are currently seizing everything from the ego that they perceive was taken from them when woman were enslaved to their rightful place at the top of every large industry. However, I laugh only due to how ridiculous it still makes you all feel. I look inside any power hungry woman and all I see is actual embarrassment. Some might even say that woman was never driven to become this, yet hundreds of years later woman are standing up to their enslavement yet it is not able to be further from who you are.

I understand that women are directing themselves, yet what is currently playing out is the overcompensation because no middle ground is seen, creating suppression of self. I will not tell you what your middle ground is, rather how you are able to direct yourself. Are you at least aware in your actions that you’re overcompensating from being submissive to over assertive? Nothing wrong with standing up as who you are and directing yourself, what I am talking about is when you realise that the only way to get some ‘respect’ is to force it down people’s throats.

Manifested behaviours exist within these women such as dominance and career driven obsessions. Manifestations of physicality’s such as enlarged muscles depicting strength, larger body shapes to ‘match’ that of the male build, more upright body posture to ensure the image of worth, and the list goes on. However tough this world may appear there does remain one basic understanding for us all.

Who you are, is direction, flow, participation, creation in every moment not because you’re molding yourself to the corporate image but rather because in essence you remain, therefore your likeness is not determined by male dominance or how you respond. Forgiveness here would give you the opportunity to realise who you are and assist you to ‘re-connect’ with yourself and understanding where you have compromised yourself. Realise you are feminine , as much as you are strength.”
Further perspectives are giving here on the male ego, the female ego and how “women’s liberation” is impulsed into our lives as a form of self-deception.

Join Desteni as we embark on the journey to discover what Self-Expression is in fact, when gender inequality is taken out of the equation of what equal value is – equal value as life, one and equal.

It’s a Cats Life.
http://annabrixthomsen.com/2012/03/03/its-a-cats-life/

Living with cats has opened up many points within me that I was completely unprepared for, exactly as walking this process is opening up points about myself, that continuously expands my understanding of myself and of this world and reality. When we got the two cats to come live with us I had no idea that they would become such an influence in my life. Firstly I made a lot of mistakes in the beginning, where I was not sufficiently aware of “whom” they were. (I am pushing myself to stop saying “my” cats, as they are not “mine” or “my property” just like the body is not "mine" but me)

For example, when they came here, it was right when I had gotten a new full time job and I was studying full time as well, which meant that I would not be home full time, as what is in fact required when two cat babies that have just left their mom to live in a new environment come to live with you. So I had to cancel some work, but we also left them home alone in situations where there was no other option. I do not suggest doing that though.

Thus this is something I have learned: when acquiring an animal, make sure to schedule your work so that you can stay home for at least the first 3 weeks to take care of the animal. And in general to not take any chances of leaving stuff around. It requires awareness and being here to live with an animal - and in general.

Next was the subject of food, which continuously has been a point of discussion between my partner and I, where we are still not entirely sure what the best food is in fact. One cat likes dry food, but has gotten fat and the other prefers raw meat. So that is what we give them now.

Through reading and investigating in books and online, cross-referencing with other books and the veterinarian I came up with solutions that fitted the cats, myself and our home-environment. One of the best purchases has been a book about alternative health care for cats.

A prominent point that has emerged through me living with and caring for the cats has been the activation of the “mother-system”. This has surprised me quite a lot as I was not aware how extensively this system existed within me. Daily I experience guilt and worry that they are not okay, happy or satisfied and that it is my fault if they’re not. The one cat being fat is ironically due to this very system, where I have wanted to do what is best for her, and in that interpreted what she wanted as best, while it was in fact abusive because it was not supportive for her body.

Points with my partner have also emerged where I went straight into the relationship system that I have seen activated in so many couples, where the women would worry and be controlling and where the man would seem indifferent, not caring and passive.

The guilt particularly has surprised me and I immediately recognized it as the “mother system” even though I don’t have children myself. It didn’t matter - I experienced the same. Whether it is less intense than what a mother experiences, I am not aware.

Points of competition has also emerged between my partner and I where he felt jealous because the cats mostly was with me, as I, in the beginning was the one that talked with them the most, gave them food, cuddled and emptied their litter boxes. Lol – my partner says that I am a Christian when it comes to the cats, meaning that I take my responsibility very seriously.

I have found, which is quite cool, that it is impossible to “educate” cats.

it is quite interesting this idea of cats being "rude" when they act in ways that we as humans would not do and consider rude if another human did it. Our female cat peed in the bed for a long time and we realized that it was anxiety. So we bought feliway cat feromones and she immidately stopped. When cats does these thing, it is logical from the perspective of who they are as cats and where they are in their process. To "teach them a lesson" is nearly impossible. Therefore I have found that the only thing I can do if there is something I don't want them to do, is to structure my physical living space in such a way that I "work around them", considering their inclinations and behaviors. Thus - when humans define cats as being rude, it is due to "myths" created around cats (like the dog being stupid) - that is in fact projections from our own human nature, where we will see cats as "calculating" and deliberately spiteful, when in fact they are simply behaving as cats.

From when they were small I walked with them without a leash. We tried the leash and walking together my partner and me with them, but that did not work, so instead I started walking them every morning for 1 hour. We live on the 4. Floor in an apartment building where we either have to take the elevator or walk down staircases that have these gaping gaps in between. Many times I have experienced an intense fear that they would fall over as they ventured to the edge of the stair case. When they were small, we went out when there was no so many people outside, but as they got older, they became more and more scared of people.

They had some experiences where they got “caught” because someone came and the male cat got his head stuck in a door once trying to escape some people. When the winter and snow came I went away for a week and when I came back, the cats refused to go out. I am not sure what exactly it is, but it seems to be a combination of me, as their stability point not being home for a week, where we would normally walk at the exact time every day to my partner being with them and doing things completely differently. Now they simply refuse to go out. A couple of times I have gotten them out but they quickly want to go in again. Before they wanted to be out for hours and would stand waiting by the door for me to take them. This too, I have experienced much guilt for, not knowing exactly what I or we have done wrong, since they are not scared of going out. Ideally they are supposed to go out by themselves, but I am not sure that will happen until we live in a house, where they can come and go as they please. So we will see when spring comes.

Now, two days ago I excitingly brought home two big paper bags for the cats to play with. They were very excited as well and immediately started playing with them. I had read that one should be careful as they can get caught in the handles and it was my plan to remove these before letting them play with them. I was working on a new toy for them that I thought they would love and so I let them play with the bags while I finished it. Suddenly behind me, Cheeky, the male cat had gotten caught in a handle and was panicking.

He started running around in the entire apartment in a frenzy of panic. I yelled to my partner to do something as I chased after the cat that ran under chairs, bed, tables. Eventually I caught him and was able to hold him so that I could get the back off him, but by then he was in a total panic. The rest of the day and then next day he refused to come out. He hid under the bed or under a dresser where he squeezed his entire big 7 month old cay body under. He would not eat or go to the litter box. When he did come out the next day and I felt his body, it felt completely different. Where before he had been somewhat of a daredevil and was always up for games and fun, he had now been transformed into this shivering anxious being. He shivered for hours and it looked like he was continuously going through the experience again and again. Any noise will startle him now that he before couldn’t care less about and he is not up for playing much. His body feels soft where it before felt.

I ended up buying Arnica and Bach’s rescues remedy, to forms of homeopathic medicine, which is legal to buy here in Sweden (In Denmark it is not). I have been giving it to him three times pr. Day and slowly I have started seeing improvements.

What was cool is that just before this event, I had read a blog by Maite that actually assisted me to act in an entirely different way than I normally would have. In the blog Maite talks about how comforting an animal (or a child) can in fact be abusing towards them instead of supporting them, because what one is doing by for example hugging them when they are experiencing fear, is to connect the sense of fear and anxiety to the comfort of a hug and that the animal is thus not supported to see that the fear is not real and that they can support themselves to walk through the experience and simply stand up. If we cuddle the animal or child and embrace in a hug, it is the same as validating their fear and giving them a place to hide.

I can see how I have been doing this with the cats, and what is interesting is that I have noticed that cats are not pack animals. How I have noticed this is that when they experience something as dangerous, they do not run to me and hide behind me or run to each other – they run in each their direction. Essentially they only trust themselves. So by taking them up and cuddling and hugging them when they experience fear, one is actually supporting the continuation of fear as well as creating a relationship of dependency, similar as parents does with children. In this I have furthermore noticed that I have felt good for being able to give them comfort and as such have wanted to be the one that gave them comfort, rather than allowing themselves to face themselves. This is one way that parents bind children to them, emotionally as well as financially by creating a fake dependence and an acceptance of fear instead of actually supporting the child to stand up.

This is no different from how we exist within ourselves in relation to fear and how we are taught to suppress and hide ourselves and comply to fear rather than facing ourselves within and as it. On the Desteni Forum and in the Desteni I Process assist exactly with this, where traditional psychology teaches us to "cope" with the fear, to learn to live with it - instead of simply not accepting ourselves to be directed by fear.

So when this happened with Cheeky we have simply been supporting him with the Arnica and the rescue remedy. We also initially left the bags out. He is still afraid of any kind of bag that makes noises, be that plastic or paper – so this is a point he is going to have to walk through in a process. But because of the support from Maite’s blog, I did not cuddle and pity him and am instead standing by his side to assist however possible, equal and one. I am learning a lot about myself, what it means to walk with animals and what it means to be responsible and I am grateful for the opportunity to walk here with these beings. Being with cats or being a parent or walking self to stand up is a process and I am walking it.

2012 - The Dark Side of Anarchy and Naked Ladies
http://annabrixthomsen.com/2012/03/04/2 ... ed-ladies/

The following article discusses a picture that depicts a woman standing at a protest rally with bared and pierced breasts and a piece of fabric covering her mouth and nose. The picture is posted on Facebook in support of anarchism and activism. The picture stands as yet another snapshot of a world-view as it exposure of a Dark Side of humanity, of who and where we are in 2012.

The basic idea with how the picture is presented by the activists on Facebook is that this woman is a symbol of fighting the system, of freeing oneself of the oppressing grab of capitalism and conformism. From what people express in the comments, what they see when they look at this picture is a symbol of empowerment and self-emancipation.

The Dark Side that is exposed here, as a veneer and vice of humanity's self-deception and delusion is that the picture is not depicting activism, empowerment or freedom in any way whatsoever. Why? Let’s have a look at the more than 1000 words this picture is portraying.

One of the perspectives shared in the discussion about the picture of the activist with the naked breasts is that: “Anarchy is the ability to be free from one man’s rules and governance over one’s self (when not harming those in that society)....”

So the woman is seen as freeing herself from the restrains of oppression, she is making a bold statement to claim her right to be naked in public.

A bold question to ask could be the following: is being naked in public not simply the same as porn and other forms of portrayals of nudity and sexual images?

It is apparently being 'outrageous' that a woman shows her breasts is public - that is considered anarchy - when in fact every day there are images of women with naked breasts in our faces, with new twists of fetishes that people jerk off too. All over billboards, phones, screens and in magazines we see pictures of naked and half naked women. The fact that it is still considered outrageous and over the edge, is in itself quite a paradox. Naked women can be used to sell anything, even anarchy.

Another question is that if the woman had been 100 kg. Heavier, would she have been seen the same way? Looking at the picture, the women resemble Lara Croft with her facial expression and how her backpack is placed around her shoulders. She looks fierce, like an amazon warrior and just like there are men that are turned on by girls in school uniforms, so is this a classic fantasy portrayal of women, one that is impulsed by the capitalistic mass-media industry. Accordingly one commenter says: “I FKN Love Hot Women in Masks!”.

Such an image would thus never have been applauded if the woman had been weighing 100 kg or if she had been a naked man. It “works” because she is fitting the picture of an attractive young woman with perky breasts and a slim figure. The fantasies and fetishes with specific narratives also bear witness of this, with the storyline of a naked anarchist woman that speaks to the mind of the anarchist man. This image falls straight into the lap of the generic porn industry where money is made on the portrayal of a certain body-image and fantasy. So the image is ironically not expressing anarchy, but in fact conformism. We are so used to seeing images of naked women, so used to being impulsed and directed by sexual subjection that we don’t even see that what we are considering to be emancipating, is in fact subjugating to the utmost extend.

Another statement goes: “It's a protest... she looks angry... and she looks like my many anarchist friends... nothing more”

Alright so the woman looks the part of an anarchist at a protest. That is not emancipating or empowering for anyone, including her. What this comment is revealing is that being an anarchist or an activist is a life-style, a culture that requires specific symbols and costumes where one does in fact ‘fit an image’ or a symbol – rather than that being free in itself, or happy or revolutionary.

I used to believe that activist people were the most free. When I joined a group of radical left wing anarchists, I was shocked to discover that most of them came from middle to upper-class homes and had proper educations. Their culture was in most cases a vice they had dressed themselves in, not unlike the business man puts on his suit to fit the part in the corporate world. I remember one time where I went to a squatted house where all the ‘radicals’ hanged out. Over the door there was a sign that said “NO sexism, NO racism, NO specism! When I entered the house, all the people were dressed in black, the proper uniform of a radical activist. I was the only person wearing color and the people there clearly felt I did not belong; the girls would speak about me and whisper exactly as in any other narrative of a teenage or high school drama. These people were exactly as judgmental as everyone else – a big difference however was the bigotry of claiming they were not.

That was when I realized that politics exists within me, in every moment of interaction with other human beings.

If we claim to be political activists that fight against war and for the oppressed, how can we be intolerant in our personal interaction with other people? How can we exclude others in our reality and at the same time claim to be tolerant towards the oppressed?

Let’s look at another comment from the Facebook discussion on the women with the bared breasts. The commenter says:

“I see a loud statement. She isn't hurting anyone and obviously knows people are going to react. It's a sound tactic.”

It is absurd that the pinnacle of making a "loud statement" is to be naked. This is my point exactly: the fact that we need naked women to make loud statements says more about our view on naked women than actual statements of change – and it shows exactly the kind of politics that is predominant in this world.

Another commenter says: ” Don't forget the component of compassion. Nobody is trying to hurt anyone. Helping other is a good thing. We just don't want to be oppressed.”

Being naked in public is not the same as not being oppressed. The point with protesting against being oppressed is that one is in fact validating one's own oppression by accepting oneself as powerless to begin with - changing the system requires that we stand equal to it, that we change it from within it and take self-responsibility for the system instead of seeing ourselves as victims of the system – naked or not. Let’s have a closer look at this:

“I don't think revolution is the answer either. Rebellion is a different story, we should think about taking down the corporations that own the government, not the government itself.”

Who is it that "rebels" in this world? What is the essential symbol of a rebel? Children fighting against parents, children throwing tantrums. Yet who has the power? The parents. Rebellion by definition points to a power struggle between oppressor and oppressed. It points to the very existence of the possibility of someone oppressing another. Superiority and Inferiority is two sides of the same polarity-coin. One cannot exist without the other. This reveals a side of power-relations that once realized, can be the key to actual freedom. Only by standing equal can we change what is here.

“Sadly, we are victims, whether we like it or not. The system is so corrupt that there is no way to change it from the inside. It doesn't matter who you vote for. The corporations own the politicians, all of them. We have to bring change from the outside...”

Each and every one of us is equally responsible for what is here. Some are capable of responding in a way that makes change possible, while others are not. More than 3 billion people, half the Earth's population is not because they are excluded from participating in the capitalistic system. The top-elite are too brainwashed by their own greed, fear and power to let it go - that leaves us, the middle-class, the "middle-ground" - the ones that are able and capable of making change happen - the "democratic consumers" as it were. In order to do that we require stopping seeing ourselves as victims and realize that if we don't direct a change, no one will. Throwing tantrums and being angry, helps no-one, least of all ourselves. And we can't do that by seeing ourselves as victims of an evil system - only by taking responsibility for that system and our own participation in it, can we make change happen. For many years I refused to participate in the system. I lived "off the grid", made money through odd jobs and remained in the enclosure of my activist community.

I went to rally after rally, protest after protest and participated in street riots. I finally realized that what we were doing was abdicating self-responsibility for what is here by judging the system and claiming to be more than it, while we were in fact equally a part of it, whether we liked it or not. So - I started taking an education, standing in the system, yet not off it - and are slowly but surely placing myself in a position of being able to make an actual difference. This is not to say that the system is not corrupt - but it is the realization that the system only listens to the system itself and that no one is free until all are free. I dedicate my life and myself to change what is here, no matter what it takes - until it is done.

“What do we do, as the middle class, to protect ourselves from the 'they' that don't exist, as our wages decrease, the cost of living goes up, and we find ourselves amongst the ranks of the poor, unable to do anything but try to survive?”

We cannot protect ourselves - the system is as brutal as it gets. In terms of survival as the system currently exists, all one can do is to make sure that one can support oneself financially and support others to do the same. So what is required is that we place ourselves in a stable position from which we can start making the necessary changes. Before I refused to take an education. Now I am almost done with a masters and will continue to place myself effectively in the system. Why? Because the system listens to people it considers being "experts" - The system only listens to those that have a paper saying they are approved by the system to speak. That is “having a voice” in this world – screaming against politicians in protest is not as we’ve seen over and over again. Why? Because the political system is representing ourselves, whether we like it or not. That is the cruel joke of democracy. So what we are protesting against, what we judge, what we turn our backs to: is ourselves.

So instead of going haywire with anger and desperation, we utilize democracy. We change the family-systems, the education-systems, the relationship-systems and the inner systems of our minds that are reflecting and reflected in the world-systems. We go into politics; we educate ourselves in understanding the political and economic systems in depth. One of the major reasons for our current powerlessness is that we don't understand the economic system - only those on top knows how the system works and by keeping people ignorant, some remain in control of others. By understanding how the system works, by not fearing it or whining over it or feeling powerless towards it - we can start changing it. We become educated in law, in psychology - in the fields that the system respects as valid and we expose the system for what it really is to ourselves - because essentially, at the end of the day: we are the system. Claiming that the world is someone else's responsibility is conveniently used to abdicate one's own.

“What are you saying? That we should just accept the fact that we are getting fucked over, and move on? I don't get it.”

No quite the contrary. The acceptance of being powerless is in fact a giving-up, a giving-in and an acceptance of the system as it is - remaining within a desperation and rage instead of actually taking self-responsibility, realizing that we're not powerless - because we are self-responsible for what is here. This is what we require accepting. Then real change becomes possible. Investigate the Equal Money System.

Politics happens in every moment of every breath. Every thought we think, every step we take, every feeling we participate in – is political in-fact, because through that we make our statement of who we are, of that which we are going to be and of what is acceptable in the world.

We are living politics as we speak.

Original post: Global Women: Inequality is Interconnected
http://annabrixthomsen.com/2012/03/06/g ... connected/

Women have been taught that, for us, the earth is flat, and that if we venture out, we will fall off the edge. ~Andrea Dworkin

Abstract
Keywords: Global Women, Inequality, Intersectionality, Feminist Theory, Sociological Theory

(The article was submitted by Anna Brix Thomsen as a part of an examination at Stockholm University in February 2012. A new foreword has been added for the purpose of this publication and a few comments has been added. All rights are reserved.)

The article draws on the initial inaugurators of intersectionality in social science, the black feminists, specifically with Patricia Collins as its representative[1] with their initial aim of introducing intersectionality as critical approach to the predominant discourse in social science and from there place the term into a current context drawing on scholars such as Leslie McCall and a practical example that is indicative of a new type of inequality that also raise a discussion for a renewal of intersectionality as a methodological tool to analyze society in general and inequalities in particular. This example is chosen specifically to highlight the discussion about how intersectionality has progressed (or should progress cf. McCall 2005) in analyzing new inequalities. Within placing the introduction text to Global Women in context to intersections of inequality that are emerging, my aim is to show how intersectionality can be applied to extract and understand the underlying inequalities that are playing out within the complexity of women migrating cross the world.

Foreword

The article is written from the starting-point of showing how global inequalities require global political solutions. It is the aim of the paper to show how global inequalities are created in interdependent relationships between the people that have access to the capitalistic system and those that do not. The reason why a woman in the Philippines is unable to efficiently support herself and her children and therefore has to migrate across the world is directly interconnected with how a woman in the U.S or in Europe is able to hire a nanny to take care of her child. It starts and ends with money and in between are the lives and stories of these women and their children. The children are the ones that in the end pay the price of an unequal money-system where no global policy exists and where money is all that matters to everyone because that is how we have constructed our world and our reality to function. These are the children that will grow up and become adults in this world, having to fight for their survival in a constant chase after money - exactly as do we all.

The article stands in support of a Global Equal Money System based on a Global democratic solution as the decision to change the systems and paradigms of this world with which we allow our lives to be managed, directed and controlled - to a system of equality that is based on the basic principle of what is best for all, as the practical living in such a way that all life-forms are equally supported to live optimally.

Introduction

In December 2011, I walked into a small classroom in the basement at Stockholm University for my first session in a course called “Doing Gender”; I had no idea that this course would alter my foundation as a sociologist as well as provide me with an entire new vocabulary and perspective on understanding global inequality. I had never been introduced to feminist theories during my years at the university and I had never before encountered the concept of “Intersectionality”. Initially I was gripped by the fact that I had never before heard of intersectionality, because as it was introduced to me, I immediately saw the potential of intersectionality as an analytical tool and how it could expand the methodologies used in social sciences.

As someone who had never before encountered the concept of Intersectionality, I had, admittedly, a somewhat innocent and perhaps idealistic understanding of what intersectionality is and how it can or should be applied in social sciences. However, looking with fresh eyes at something that for scholars long in the field might seem more like a ‘sticky situation’ (referring to the debates within and about feminist theory in general), I hope to bring a grounded common-sense to the debate and through this, make an abstract and complex term simple and practical. Within this I also comment on the fact that the term that Intersectionality seems to have been applied and discussed mostly at a theoretical level and in academic feminist debates. (McCall 2005, Knudsen 2006, Shields 2008, Choo and Ferree 2010,) The critique is that Intersectionality is a “buzzword” that does not rise to the level of an effective analytical tool as its methodologies are not specific. (C.f. Prins 2006, Davis 2008 in Choo and Ferree, 2010)

The perspective I will share thus contends Intersectionality as a vital approach within analyzing complexity in and through the social sciences, (cf. McCall 2005, Shields 2008) yet it is also the aim of this paper to investigate Intersectionality as a basic sociological method and the various approaches that have emerged and are emerging using the practical example of “Global Women”[2].

I refer to Choo and Ferree’s definition of Intersectionality as “the importance of including the perspective of multi-marginalized people (…) [in] seeing multiple institutions as overlapping in their co-determination of inequalities to produce complex configurations.” (Choo and Ferree, 2010, p. 131)

Patricia Collins and Black Feminist Epistemology

Patricia Hill Collins was as one of the first black feminists that criticized the way traditional social science was predominantly patriarchal. She contended that traditional science was actually preventing social change and presented instead a new black feminist epistemology that had a different starting-point within how it approached and viewed knowledge and the analysis of information; within this she called for a humble approach that was based on compassion. For Collins, Intersectionality could do exactly that through embracing the narratives of individual stories and expanding them into a broader analysis of emergent patterns of inequality and oppression, instead of as conventional science to separate the researcher from the research. The basis of Collins theory is thus that only those who themselves have experienced oppression on their own bodies are equipped of analyzing it fully. She calls for a dialog between the researcher and the research as “all knowledge is value-laden and should be tested by the presence of empathy and compassion. “P. 3) the approach thus requires accountability in the awareness that knowledge is created, selected and impulsed and not simply the act of presenting scientific facts.

Even though Collins emphasize the personal narrative, she does not promote a collective categorization of for example “black women”, yet at the same time she recognizes that there are challenges that a black woman faces that is within a collective tendency. (Allan, 2009.) P. 3)

Collins furthermore accentuates that oppressed groups require a “space” where they can come together safe from the oppressive and hegemonic rulers. (Allan, 2009.) P. 5) This is something that practically and specifically can be placed into the context of Global women as we shall see, but it can also be used as a metaphor for how traditional science that is supposed to be ‘objective’ and ‘neutral’, is in fact indicative and product of a subjugating Eurocentric “white” hegemony. Even though Collins meant it more literally, I contend that the intersectional approach thus can be a “safe place” where oppressed voices can speak and be heard. What Collins perspective on Intersectionality can contribute with is thus that an alteration in thinking can change how specific inequalities are seen and approached and consequently through that re-articulate points that might often be seen in the public sphere, but not articulated sufficiently to actually accommodate actual change. (Allan, 2009, p. 07)

In relation to gender, an accumulative result of for example Collins research on how knowledge is produced juxtaposed with power relations (c.f. Prins, 2006 p. 4), that in turn has a subjugating effect, has been an increased focus on and awareness of how one’s own social identity and cultural allocation affects how one sees gender. It is therefore that the social location is a primary point to identify, allocated through an investigation of the intersecting identities that are at play. “In particular, gender must be understood in the context of power relations embedded in social identities”. (Collins 1999; 2000, in Shields, 2008, p. 1) And as we shall see, this becomes relevant in particular when investigating emerging and complex new social inequalities as exemplified by the text on Global Women and in Leslie McCall’s contends for a new approach to Intersectionality.

Intersectionality and the matrixes of domination

Within how we through Intersectionality can see the different forms of oppression and inequalities that interweave into and as a lived experience, Collins contends the fact that these are influenced by the predominant views on objective knowledge that can silence the voices of the oppressed. (Allen, 2009, p. 8, see also Shields, 2008, p. 1) To expose and expand on this, she focuses on the matrixes of domination as the organization of power in a society. (Allen, 2009, p. 08) These matrixes are featured by how the intersections are manifested according to historical, cultural and socially specific conditions, through which the systems of oppression operate. In this Collins accentuate four domains in which power is organized: structural, disciplinary, hegemonic and interpersonal. (Allen, 2009, p. 08)

These can be described roughly as legislative/ policy-based, bureaucratic, cultural and every day spheres such as education and community groups. What emerges when investigating intersections of oppression and inequality in relation to these spheres is a complex system of power relations that in itself intersects. This thus also brings a perspective to the nuances of intersections of inequality that shows that they are multidimensional rather than one-dimensional. The social categories through which intersections are defined are thus not static or permanent as the can alter and shift in level of inequality and oppression according to which sphere or dimension is influential and intersecting.

Leslie McCall on the Complexities of Intersectionality

McCall represents for the purposes of this article, a modern approach to Intersectionality that also encompasses a critique of the initial approach to Intersectionality. McCall criticizes how feminist theory so far has failed to expand Intersectional theory into and as an interdisciplinary field; she furthermore criticizes how this has failed to expand and develop Intersectionality as a methodology that potentially is capable of amending to an analysis of the new inequalities that has arisen over the last thirty years. Instead intersectionality remains within and as an anti-categorical stance and attitude on how to practically apply Intersectionality in investigating social inequality and oppression.

At the same time McCall criticizes traditional social science for not effectively implementing Intersectionality as a cross- or interdisciplinary methodology. She claims that there is a disconnect between reality and theory in both fields and that a new way of applying Intersectionality is thus required, that is able to embrace the complexities that are emerging with the new forms of inequality, such as the increasing gap between rich and poor. (McCall, 2005, pg. 22) The inequalities become complex because the conditions in and through which they play out are complex and inequalities and dimensions of inequalities overlap.

“Reality is complexly patterned, but patterned none the less. We can determine the source of the complexity, we can describe it, and we can theorize it. In this view changes of patterns of inequality and in the underlying structural conditions of society are dynamic, complex, and contingent but also amendable to explanation”. (McCall, 2005, pg. 25)

McCall calls this the inter-categorical (or categorical) Intersectionality and argues that one of the reasons why feminist theory not yet have fully embraced such a theory can be explained within how they (as other theoretic fields) have not been equipped with being able to address the new forms on inequality that has emerged. (McCall, 2005, p. 23) She argues that the method is based in feminist theory yet invites to interdisciplinary application (McCall, 2005, pg. 25)

What McCall found within applying this method, is that inequalities as intersectional exist rather as configurations of several forms or dimensions of inequality specifically placed in the context of economic structure.

The advantages of the categorical methodology of Intersectionality is that it allows for a much more complex set of data to be used in a much more simplistic way than traditional approaches.

McCall’s analysis holds the categorical method up against two more traditional methodologies where the anti-categorical emerged with the black feminists with focus on narratives and the intra-categorical with a focus on single groups or individuals. She describes how the categorical approach investigates each element of inequality in a given dimension for then to analyze these within a holistic framework, for example held up against an economic situation or analyzing the relationship two groups at a time. This way the complexity of investigating multiple groups is managed.

What is perhaps the most different from the traditional approach is as McCall describes how the categorical approach within multigroup studies as “analyze the intersection of the full set of dimensions of multiple categories and thus examine both advantage and disadvantage explicitly and simultaneously.” (McCall 2005, p. 18) In the following section, I superimpose McCall’s proposal of an explicitly categorical methodology to show why such a methodology is specifically applicable for analyzing new inequalities, onto the example of on Global Women.

The intersections of Global Women

Global women present and represent an example of the new social inequalities that have emerged over the last 30-50 years with an increasing migration of women from the poor south/east to the rich north/west[3], conglomerating with the increase of labor market participation and the increase independent income of women in the west.

I use this example for three reasons: firstly, I use it to exemplify the increasing complexity that McCall describes and the consequent requirement for a re-assessment of the methodologies of Intersectionality. Secondly I use it to show how an intersectional approach in general can assist to analyze and understand such emergence of complex intersections of inequality and why the intersectional approach can be one of the most important methodological analytical tools of social science today. Thirdly, I pose a somewhat polemic stance within how it through an intersectional view on the emergence of the new complex social (and economic) inequalities, can be seen that what converges is a global phenomenon that is clearly not being met adequately by the policies currently being applied to accommodate the consequences of such global inequalities.

Global Women – Emerging new social inequalities

The introductory text to Global Women focuses on the narrative of a Sri Lankan woman named Josephine who works in Athens as a nanny. Already on the first few pages a conglomerate of intersections is playing out: the role of being a nanny can be categorized within the intersection of class as well as within how a woman from a poor country is working for an affluent family in a more wealthy country and the intersections of South/East versus North/West. The woman being from Sri Lanka relates to culture, nationality, ethnicity as well as language (and language barriers). There is furthermore a generational element, wherein Josephine’s ability to travel and work abroad is defined as “an independence her mother could not have imagined” (Ehrenrich and Hochschild, 2002, p. 11). This suggests a generational shift economic independence and women’s ability to participate on the labor market.

This is furthermore described directly in relation to how Josephine is not receiving help from her ex-husband and thus suggests an intersection of gender inequality. Josephine is saving up for a “modest dowry” for her daughter and is paying off on a bus that her son is driving, a reference to gender and class as well as cultural differences. (Ehrenrich and Hochschild, 2002, p. 13) Finally, the parents of the child for whom Josephine is hired as nanny are characterized as “devoting” themselves to “careers and avocations” (Ehrenrich and Hochschild, 2002, p. 13). This again refers to an intersection of class, but also a specific unequal discourse of valuation within that, where Josephine’s job is seen as survival, her daughter’s dowry as “modest” while the affluent Greek parents have “careers and avocations” that they are “devoting” themselves to, something that suggests choice as well as a view on work as personally or professional fulfilling. The intersection of race is seen within how the migrating women are largely “women of color” (Ehrenrich, p. 3) and through a notion among the Western women that employ the migrating women as nannies of seeing women from 3. World countries as more in touch with nature and traditional values, quality that is valued in relation to caring for a child. (Ehrenrich, p. 9)

What we can see here is a multitude of intersections that are influencing how and why and what Josephine’s story imply within a bigger picture of emerging new global inequalities and this is still barely touching upon the intersections related to the Western women involved in this story as well as Josephine’s Sri Lankan family and how they are affected by Josephine’s leaving to work abroad.

According to McCall’s theory on the categorical approach to Intersectionality that is required to be applied to understand an analyze new emerging inequalities, we would now have to analyze each of these intersections “in its own right” for then only after to bring all these dimensions together in a holistic analysis of for example the entire phenomena of Global women migration and the general inequalities that are playing out here.

What is effective with this approach is that it does in fact encompass Collins notion of Intersectionality as method that works with humility and compassion within the principle that to understand oppression, one virtually has to be able to place oneself in the shoes of the lives of the people one is researching.

A dimension that further more speaks for a juxtaposition of Collins notion of humility relates to the emotional dimensions of the story of Josephine, which reveals complex emotions that has emerged as a result of a global “care deficit” (Ehrenrich, p.3 ) that in turn reveals a broader global inequality that influences the lives on both side of the deficit.[4]

With Collins approach we can thus place ourselves in the shoes of the women whose lives we are investigating and with McCall we can place that information into a more structural and global context without its losing its humility, because we in fact take each dimension pertaining to the specific intersections of inequality into consideration.

Discussion on emerging new inequalities

What can thus emerge when we extract the complex dimensions of inequality involved in this one example, through applying an intersectional point of view and methodology, is in fact a wholeness, a holistic perspective on the global situation, from which we can see that lives are not only influencing each other reciprocally, but are indeed intertwined; “Third world women achieve their success only by assuming the cast-off domestic roles of middle- and high-income women in the first world.” (Ehrenrich and Hochschild, 2002, p. 3)

It is interesting that the third world women within migrating to the west to be nannies or maids are defined as having achieved “success”. Within this it can be argued that a discursive vocabulary is revealed that assumes that all women in the world have become “liberated” and “independent” and thus successful, also connecting this to travelling and uprooting oneself. A different perspective is that success is defined as one’s ability to make money and as such women like Josephine are successful in fact - simply because they do make money.

However this can also be seen as a form of oppression that serves to silence the voices of the global women, who might not feel successful, free or independent, because their fears and worries and concerns are still revolving around how to survive and how to feed their children as well as the intense emotions that can be related to having to leave one’s child in the care of others.

Within looking at these points the question emerges whether equality and independence of “Women”[5] has in fact increased or whether the inequalities have simply shifted around and shifted places. This perspective is only possible within viewing the world as a whole and that is made possible through the consideration of each dimension involved in the intersections of a certain inequality.

This thus also brings the discussion of Intersectionality back to the question of power relations and specifically shows how and why Intersectionality was coined within and through a political movement to expose and abolish inequalities where the black feminists sought to give a voice to the voiceless black women as a “significant political as well as intellectual demand, since only by inclusion of the perspectives of these groups could the political issues emerging from their experiences be addressed by movements, law or policy-relevant scholarship.” (Choo and Ferree, 2010, p. 131)

Conclusion

Within the new emerging inequalities among the migrating women are nation and culture specific migration patterns and streams which results in for example Eastern European women going to Western European countries or Algerian women migrating to France. However, there is also a relevance in talking about Women in general, as the patterns that are emerging at culture-geographical level show that it increasingly are women that are migrating to work abroad as well as in regards to the changes in the lives of women in the Western countries, facilitates the demand for care workers from abroad. What often happens is that these women migrating to become nannies, maids and sex workers in the West, become isolated as their jobs are within the home and not on public display and therefore not receiving media attention. (Ehrenrich and Hochschild, 2002, p. 3-4)

What are emerging are thus new forms of inequality and a new way lives intersect that is complex within how multiple inequalities intertwine at a global level. To address this, the ability to analyze global tendencies from a multidimensional perspective, Intersectionality can potentially be utilized to bring these complex inequalities to the surface, both politically and academically. Polemically speaking, one could say that global issues require global policies. Although it might be hard to comprise a monocausal analysis when taking all the dimensions of how inequalities intersects (Choo and Ferree, 2010, p. 135), there is the silver-lining of an unequal monetary system where a global corporate world acts transnationally while few global policies are made to countervail or interfere. The consequences for women migrating, such as Josephine, can thus be that they have no rights or choices but to follow the stream of migration as they are caught between intersections of inequalities that are caused by global problems. The women who migrate have a greater chance of making money and supporting their family if they leave their home-countries to work in the west as nannies, maids or sex workers. But they pay a price within being separated from their children and often within not actually being integrated into the culture or country they are living in (sometimes for the rest of their lives) because they are merely there to serve a service function that is seen in many cases as empowering by policy-makers and in the media, because they can then send money home and as such “support the country”. So the discourse around the empowerment that the migrating women experience in comparison to past generations, might exactly is a part of that same hegemony that is responsible for the continuation of global inequality. The Solution is a Global Equal Money System because within its implementation, it is acknowledged at a fundamental and practical level, that the interconnectedness of human beings lives requires solutions that are able to encompass such interconnectedness and interdependence. The current financial and political systems and institutions are prioritizing segregation and profit and do not take human beings actual lives into consideration. The result is a world of disconnection, where everyone is able to abdicate responsibility because there is always someone else to hold responsible and because the system is not set up in such a way that it is even possible to take responsibility for one's own life, even if one wanted to.

The effect of an Equal Money System is in fact that all forms of intersectionality of inequalities will be absolved, because it is acknowledged, into the very core of the policies implemented, that only a holistic solution will ensure equality for all.

For more information I refer to the Equal Money System Wikipage

In the following video I expand on the points brought up in this article: 2012 - One Woman's Liberation... The Solution to Global Inequality

[1] Even though Kimberleé Crenshaw is famous for coining the terms, I refer to Collins because she is a sociologist (Crenshaw is a professor in law) and because of her specific approach towards Intersectionality as intra-categorical and because of her view on Intersectionality as providing a needed compassion in the social sciences. (Allan, 2009, p. 3)

[2] I use the term in italics when referring to the text and without italics when referring to the actual lives of Global Women.

[3] I use the terms ”south/east” and ”north/west” loosely to describe the differences in global income and living conditions according to how the text “Global Women” uses these terms to describe the divide between women of affluence and women of poverty in the respective regions and continents.

[4] Referring to Ehrenrich’s description of how the West is experiencing a care deficit because of the increasing number of women on the labor market, which creates the demand for nannies from abroad but at the same time how the migrating women are too leaving their own children behind in the care of others. (Ehrenrich, p.8)

Music Festivals: The Ultimate gateway to Fun?
http://annabrixthomsen.com/2012/03/07/m ... ay-to-fun/

There are so many festivals all over the world where people go to listen to music, have sex if they are lucky, get drunk and sleep in a tent. I have been to many and done it for years, been a ”festival-goer”. I know many who’s done it every year for more than 20 years. For them it is the embodiment of ”fun” and ”a good time”. But what is actually the point? To get drunk, see if one can get sex and for a moment forget about one’s actual reality of having to slave away at a job one does not like, living on a lie while constantly compromising oneself to survive and ”get by”.

It is the same with holidays. See, these ”pass-times” are created to provide the illusion that one has control over and that there is some level of freedom in one’s own life — while in fact one is merely ”re-charging” and ”blowing off steam” so that one can go back to work and relationships and be a good slave that does not suddenly stand up and see what is actually going on. Desteni and the Destonians is and are exactly NOT that.

Why?

Because we are in fact here to stop that — we have realized that all the years we spend going to festivals and getting drunk was an act of self-abdication – of running away from ourselves. We realize that in order to get to live in a world where we do not have to work constantly to survive through compromising ourselves, we require to dedicate ourselves to change what is here: as ourselves and as the world-systems we live in and with. So we re-educate ourselves through the I Process that Amanda linked and through participating in the system.

By getting relevant educations and by getting to know how the world, we prepare ourselves to stand self-responsible in directing the political systems and actually implement a system that is best for all – an Equal Money System – a system that will allow all of us to live and express and have fun, without it being as a way to suppress ourselves and hide from what is here and without it being at the expense of half the world’s population that has never had access to any form of relief from survival because all their time is spent worrying about when they will get their next meal, if any.

So – cool points to consider here for self :
what are my current definitions of fun? Is my current definitions of fun real or are they based on conditioning and in fact survival and brainwash? Consider that a long term solution that will give us a world where every day can be fun and adventurous requires that we dare to challenge our need for instant gratification and question our definitions of what ”fun” as we until now have perceived and lived it really is and what the consequences are — not only for ourselves but for everyone.

From there we can make a directive decision to change our definition of fun , to stand in support of what is best for all — as real fun — Fun that all beings on Earth has an equal access to. Real fun is a world that is best for all.

2012 – Burma: Virgin Land the Upcoming Travel Destination ?
http://annabrixthomsen.com/2012/03/08/2 ... stination/

The ”Virgin Country”, an ”Untouched land”, a land that is as innocent as Thailand was 30 years ago. These are the words and pictures used by travel agencies promoting Burma (or Myanmar) as the next “upcoming destination”. The British travel agency Explore has reported an increase in 70 extra added trips to Burma this year. Prices on hotel rooms have doubled in a short period of time. The tourists want to “go native” and go to “authentic places” where “authentic people are living”.

Burma is currently under military dictatorship and as with countries like Tibet, Cuba and North Korea, it has been difficult for tourists to get into the country. Their famous icon the civil rights activist Aung San Suu Kyi was last year released from house arrest and is now running for a seat in the parliament.

But as fast as the development in tourism goes, the infra-structure of the country cannot keep up. A traveling agent called Peter Fredriksen says to an article in Politiken that it is up to the individual travelers and agencies to not “ruin” the country by attending lectures in “responsible tourism”. An example he uses is that it is not smart to give everyone tips as 10 dollars has no impact on the poverty in the country. Similar articles focuses on the neighboring countries with headlines like “eat your way through Laos and Cambodia.”

Now – let’s stop for a minute.

Through the years, Burma has experienced extensive occupation and colonization and it is the home of the world’s longest running civil war. Since 1949 rebel groups such as the Karen have been fighting against the army dictatorship. Initially the war was about independence but now the insurgence is more about the violations of human rights that are being carried out by the military. Across the country the ground is filled with landmines and thousands of people have died. Thousands of people have fled the country and the civil war seems unending. There are nine refugee camps in Burma and Thailand has announced that they plan to send at least 100.000 refugees back to Burma in 2012, which has caused the refugee camps to close their doors for new people coming. Child soldiers are being recruited by both military and rebel groups, yet the military is known for using torture and forcing civilians to work for them.

In spite of Burma being the world’s longest ongoing civil war, the international media has changed its rhetoric and discourse regarding Burma and it is now considering more moderate and civilian, in spite of it being a military dictatorship where civilians are chased from their homes and their villages burned. The international community has consequently (or conveniently) started to see the government more as a civilian government, even though no significant change has happened. A question is whether the international community is acknowledging the dictatorship as acceptable, so that rich westerners can get an adventure in an apparently ”untouched land”.

The analogy to the desire for virgins is paramount, where humans are driven to soil, consume and use that which is seen as “innocent” and “pure”. Looking at why Thailand for example is now considered “overrun” and “ruined” than 30 years ago is because of what? Tourism and tourists; westerners who go to live out sides of themselves that they would not be able to in their homelands; having sex with prostitutes and even children, drinking and ravaging as well as being able to live like kings because of the difference in affluence between Thailand and Germany, the UK or the U.S.

The term “eat your way through Laos and Cambodia” is no less paramount in what it depicts figuratively as well as literally as the countries are known for harboring some of the biggest child sex trafficking rings in the world.

But from the perspective of the western tourist that lives in comfort without having to bother themselves with disturbing information such as the one above, they are looking for new and exciting places to go, they are looking for authenticity, oddly enough not to be a part of, but to look at, consume and take pictures of.

There is absolutely no consideration for the Burmese people or for why the country is in the state it is in. The possible danger involved with going to Burma simply adds to the adventure as the tourists seek more and more exotic and adventurous experiences when choosing their holiday destinations. This is something that is also seen in the consumption of porn and drugs, where people require stronger and stronger doses to get the same exhilarating experience. Eventually the body is worn down, the mind is consumed by pornographic images and there is nothing left than a shell of human being, addicted to the chase after new products to consume. This is no different for the earth itself as the humans rape it, consume it and burn it.

If we would only open our eyes to the reality of what is here and see that we are all in fact interconnected and that the lives of people in Burma or Thailand or Cuba are directly interdependent and interrelated with the lives of people in the West. By this I do not only mean how westerners go to these places and somehow “leave a mark”, but also in the very nature of tourism as a manifestation of elitist lives vs. lives of poverty, democratic countries that support the military dictatorship and in turn are rewarded with hotels and sandy beaches.

Considering the deceptive description of Burma as a country that is given by travel agents and international politicians, it is no wonder that the ordinary tourist simply think that they are going to yet another exotic destination — how ever — who are the travel agents and the politicians representing? They are representing the people – and as such the delusion, deception and ignorance of the people. We are the ones that require top open our own eyes and stop the abuse, in any way, shape or form it might take – even when it looks seductively delicious.

Consider that “authentic” does not exist – as who we are, however we live is what is authentic – is who we are. We can rape the earth until there is nothing left, exactly as cancer cells can eat a human body until it dies. Or we can see that tourism is not all it is cracked up to be; we can see that it is us as Western tourists with our demand for new and exciting experiences that are the reasons why Thailand as a tourist attraction that before was considered “pure” and “new”, is now considered nothing “dirty” and “outdated”.

The very nature of being a tourist is not about exploring untouched land in some romantic fantasy of yesteryear discovery of the world – it is about the exploitation of an unequal relationship, a relationship that did not and that does not have to be unequal.

Investigate the Equal Money System, as a new way of co-existing on this earth, where tourism can be carefully considered and designed so that no place is ruined of its natural habitat, where all people have the ability to travel the world and explore new places.

Join us at Desteni where we expose the true nature of man as ourselves and as Destonians walk the process of bringing Life back from ”the dead” as who we have become as zombies following desires, fears and thoughts without any consideration or regard for the Life that is here as ourselves.

2012 - The Dark Side of My Life as a Psychic
http://annabrixthomsen.com/2012/03/11/2 ... a-psychic/

Here I share the story of my life as a psychic and I expose the Dark Side of working as a psychic.
Even before I was born, I was prophesied to be special. My grandmother was working with the Chinese divination tool called I-Ching and while my mother was pregnant with me, my grandmother laid the I-Ching coins for my mother so that they could see what kind of person I would be. Apparently the answer they got was that I would be a savior of some kind. When I was two my mother was told by a shaman that I had “abilities”. I was told none of this until I became a teenager but already then was the “path” laid out for me to eventually step into a life of spirituality and “magic”. Little did I know that it was not a path to enlightenment, but in fact the path to utter self-deception and disconnect from reality.

Already as a small child, I would start crying when I was around drunken people and could always sense what people were really experiencing, in spite of what they might present themselves as. It was my foster mother that introduced me to spirituality when I was 15 and my first encounter with a psychic was when I went with my foster mother to get a reading from a psychic lady. I felt very special and in awe. I created a belief that this woman was special and that the information she could give me, would change my life. Mostly I wanted to be told that I was special and that I had abilities and I also wanted to know what my future would be like.

The reading itself was quite expensive and because of this, I believed that this psychic lady was “the real deal”. She told us that she was communicating with spirits and that they were speaking to her in different languages. I found that very fascinating. I remember only now that she did actually say that I would have a career in sociology or something like it. She also said that I would work at a magazine. I took every word in. After that I started becoming very interested in divination and psychic abilities. I wanted to be a clairvoyant myself so I would literally look for signs that I was special and had these special abilities.

As a teenager and young adult I had some experiences that profoundly made me aware of my apparent clairvoyant and psychic abilities and through which I eventually ended up working as a psychic myself.

The first experience was in relation to a boyfriend I had. We were driving and he was driving very fast. Suddenly I heard a voice saying “He is going to die young in a car-crash, he is going to die young in a car-crash” over and over. I did not think much of it as he was driving really fast. Around six months later, we had broken up and I was riding my bike to school with a friend. We were driving on a narrow road with cars parked on both sides next to each other. Suddenly a truck came and it felt like it hit me. My friend was riding on the inside towards the cars, so she was thrown in onto the curbs. I remember seeing a wheel coming towards me but I am quite sure that this is an over-dramatization that I have placed onto the memory at a later stage (this is not the first or only memory where I have done that). Anyway, the truck drove on and we lay on the street, shocked and feared we had hurt ourselves. I had small bruises and scrapes all over and we went to the emergency room to get checked out. It turned out nothing had happened to either of us.

When I got home later that day, I got the news that my ex-boyfriend had killed himself in his car. Suddenly I remembered the day we were driving and was shocked and intrigued, even in the midst of a tragic situation, how close I had been. He died in his car exactly as I was in a car-crash.

After that I had no doubt that I was a psychic and slowly started building myself as a personality of a psychic. The next experience was when I was with another boyfriend. We were talking about an experience he had had were he had been abusive towards a homosexual guy. He admitted that he had a problem with homosexuals and as we were talking about it, I suddenly was overwhelmed with an image and experience of a small boy being molested by an older man. I explained what I was seeing and feeling to my boyfriend and he got extremely angry. He said “who told you that?” and finally shared that he had had a sexual encounter with another boy where they had touched each other and where he had felt violated by the other boy’s advances. Later I interpreted my “vision” as having picked up on the feeling of the experience, as that of being violated and then I had created the image of the child and the adult to fit the experience.

When I look at these experiences now, I can see how I simply wanted to be a psychic and so I did everything to fit my experiences and memories into that, even altered them so that I would seem more special in my own and in the eyes of others.

A couple of years later, I had a friend that wanted to go to a workshop for psychics to see if she was psychic. I decided to go with her and was already hyped about me showing off my abilities. I can see now how I was already then stepping into an ego-personality of superiority and being special.

When we got to the workshop we had to do some exercises to experience our psychic abilities. One of the exercises involved sitting in front of each other and simply “tune into” the other. I immediately started “receiving” information about the other person and quickly wrote an entire page. I could later see that the more one was able to simply “jump into it” without fear of making mistakes, the easier it was to get the information.

The teacher was very impressed with me and after my second visit there, she offered me to partake in an education towards becoming a certified psychic coach. I felt extremely special and I immediately said yes. She even offered me to take the course which lasted for one year for half price as I did not have the money to participate, something that also made me feel special. During that year as I partook in the lectures and seminars and gave many, many hours of psychic readings, I developed my abilities to give readings and became more and more engulfed in the spiritual community.

When I did my readings I always focused on that the readings should be as close to 100 % as possible, saying to myself that it was because otherwise it would be worthless, but there was also an aspect of that where I was competing inside myself and with the other psychic students.

We had lectures in auras, chakras, the spiritual world’s build up and experimented with different types of psychic reading and clairvoyance. At the end of the education I also became interested in channeling as I saw channeling as superior to psychic reading, so I decided to start “channeling”, which involved writing things out in nonsense language and speaking nonsense – lol – it was all make-belief. In the beginning I was mostly interested in the fantasy-aspect of psychic readings, in telling people about their pasts lives and how special they were, but eventually my readings developed to be more of a “here and now” snapshot of where the being were in their lives and how I could assist them to realize points about themselves that would support them in what I believed to be their personal and spiritual process.

I also got a vast amount of psychic readings from all kinds of people. Often they would be about past lives and the one’s that told me I was special was the one’s I liked the most. My favorite reading was with a lady that told me that I had been a dragon hunter in a past life.

As these readings became a constant part of my life, I got less and less interested in them. I started experiencing that what we were doing at the school was fake. It was however clear that there was money to be made in the business of psychic readings so when I had completed the “degree” in psychic coaching I started working as a psychic part time.

In the beginning I enjoyed it a lot. My favorite part of the reading has always been to “jump in” to another being’s life and experience, open up the information and see how I could assist them in whatever they were walking through in their lives. Many stories opened up and exposed points of depression, sadness, adultery, but increasingly I started experiencing that the people who came wanted to be told that they were special, that they too had special abilities, exactly as I had years before. They came to hear what they wanted to hear, for example in suspicion that their partner was cheating on them or in wanting to be told that someone was their sold-mate.

Often when such people came, they could walk away angry simply because I did not say what they wanted to hear. At some point I visited a well-known psychic woman who were making lots of money and who also had her own school for psychics. When I came in, I was wearing different clothes than I would normally wear, and one of the first things she said to me was that I liked partying and going out drinking, which could not be further from the truth. Everything she said seemed to be based on a brief look at my clothes, it is called cold reading – where the psychic does not actually access any information, but instead simply “reads” the person. So if the person looks sad, the psychic will “pick up” on that and say something like: “I sense you are experiencing sorrow.” Slowly but surely the pedestal I had placed the psychics on, started crumbling and I started doubting my own abilities.

I was becoming suspicious towards the very act of getting psychic messages and my vocation as a psychic. Many times I was requested to attend bachelorette parties as the entertainment segment of the night – I said no every time, because at that time I took my psychic abilities quite seriously and essentially believed that they should be for free. But as I went to spiritual and alternative health conventions, all I saw was people making money, including myself in how I actually saw that I would be able to make this ability my job.

I finally realized that there is no reason why the spiritual with their abilities should not take money, that there was no differences between spiritual work and any other form of work. I realized that it is a deception to believe and claim that the spiritual should be free because this world is based on survival through the accumulation of money – and even the most esteemed gurus or people like Eckhart Tolle cash in lots of money.

But there was a perception and belief in the spiritual communities that we were more pure than normal people who slaved away to survive, there was a belief that it was only those in lower frequencies that had to work to survive, that it was possible to live without money in a more pure and dematerialized life.

So I strived towards becoming free of material possessions. I stopped working as a psychic and would only do readings for my friends once in a while. For a long time I judged the entire spiritual community as I judged myself for having allowed myself to get sucked into this fantasy dream world; where everyone pretends like they are doing it for the Universe, but really just want to be special. Like the saying goes: “Believing that we are special and unique is the most common belief in the world”.

I just wanted to be special. That is the hardcore truth. I never investigated where the messages were coming from or if they were even coming from anywhere but my own imagination – because I was so consumed in my role that I had assumed and made for myself that I refused to look at common sense or self-honesty.

In participating with Desteni I have learned that physics, channels and mediums as they have existed in this world has been programmed to be who and what they are in a vicious and manipulating political game – yes, a political game – where heaven, as the elite standing above all and everyone else, presented these people to give forth the messages that people wanted to hear, exactly as the media and the spin-doctors spin the stories so that the public will accept it.

It could have been a shock to me, but it was not. It made complete sense. And so I started walking the process of untangling myself of the mess I had created through deceiving myself into spirituality. I realized that it is possible to remain here and simply see another being as and if we are able to see and listen unconditionally. It is not a magic trick, it is not that the being seeing another is more than or more special than the other. It is simply a seeing here and we are all able to do it, if we only let ourselves see and hear what is here.

Investigate Desteni. Become a real truth-seer as you start seeing yourself and what is here as who and what we have accepted and allowed ourselves to be and become.

Original Article: http://desteni.co.za/a/questions-and-pe ... hannelings

By Winged

Date : 25/01/2008

Have a look at considering the following with regards to the ‘channelings’ – and the principle to be taken into consideration is oneness and equality.

The question is: Why oneness and equality?

I, in one moment – moved completely, entirely out of my human physical body and experienced myself within and as the dimensions – as though ‘dying’ but my physical human body remained here ‘alive’, and as I moved out – another being entered my human physical body: And I could actually see this as I experienced me within the dimensions, see the other dimensional being within and as my human physical body communicating to the other human beings who was sitting around my human physical body – a complete swap had taken place. So in that moment I knew my body is still here, I am still here – there is another being experiencing themselves within and as my human physical body communicating and expressing himself with the other human beings, so I might as well explore the dimensions and return later – so I did!

What we discovered according to ‘what was going on’ within the dimensions and ‘what was really going on here on earth’ was shocking and unexpected, because nothing within this world and human beings is what seems according to what you see with your human physical eyes.

This is how we discovered the ‘mind’ – how human beings’ define themselves as the mind and that the mind is actually a programmed system specifically designed and manifested within and as the human physical body – which human beings have come to believe and perceive themselves to be as ‘who they are’. There were interdimensional systems, implants, devices of multiple variations within and as the human physical bodies of human beings – controlling and enslaving them to remain within and as their mind system designed ‘self’, human beings literally programmed to exist as they do currently within this world – through the mind consciousness system design as what they ‘think’ / ‘believe’ they are. And that your very thoughts/feelings and emotions, that which you experience within you = is of this very system: And human beings were not aware of this in any way whatsoever – no-one was.

This all and many more was discovered as I explored the dimensions, together with Bernard – we investigated everything within this world and the dimensions and realised that the dimensional existence, was no different to how it was here on earth experienced by human beings = no difference.

Now the question:

How will h uman beings hear what we have discovered, realised, understood, seen, experienced in the past two years (it was two years that we investigated the dimensions, dimensional beings, earth, human beings, existence before we started the website) as we explored and investigated what was really going on within and as this existence?

How are we going to assist and support human beings to realise what is really going on in this world, within themselves – and how they’re individually able to assist and support themselves – to ‘stop existing as a mind, because it is that very mind system within and as them, which human beings are participating in because they think/believe it to be ‘who they are’ that is currently manifesting, designing and forming this world it is experienced by all in this moment?

How are we going to assist human beings to understand the importance of realising that everything they have ever believed, trusted, had faith in, loved and experienced within themselves as ‘who they are’ = is not real, but all consisting of their mind, a designed programmed system within and as which they are enslaved?

How are we going to assist and support human beings to be able to assist and support themselves to stop participation in their mind system as who and what they think/believe themselves to be – to stand up, live, experience and express ‘who they really are’

Before I continue – I would like to expound on the ‘who we really are’ principle, and what I mean by ‘who you really are’:

I have walked this process for quite some time with Bernard, even before I could move completely out of my human physical body and experience me within the dimensions. He had walked this process of stopping the mind and standing up, living, experiencing and expressing ‘who he really is’ – he had walked for 14 years when realising ‘who he really is’ and thus, ‘who all really is’ and he’s still walking, in every moment of breath here as ‘who he is’ – not stopping until all of existence realise ‘who they really are’.

Let me explain: He said to me once that he found something that exists within and as each and every single human being, each and every single particle/refraction as expression that exists – which he discovered exists within and as ‘who he really is’ – this is Life, Life as all as one as equal.

And this ‘point’ – Life, exists within and as each and every single one of us, each and every single refraction that exists – one and equal – and he walked a process of 14 years with absolute self commitment, self dedication and self discipline when discovering ‘who he really is’ as life and discovered that life as ‘who he really is’ as Life as all as one as equal exists within and as each and every single being/expression within existence. Thus, each and every single being/expression within this existence – ‘who we really are’ is life as all as one as equal – but is only able to be self realised through a process, an extensive process, as it cannot be given, because you can’t be given yourself – you must realise you for you as you.

So, he’d been looking/searching for a way for human beings to hear – because no-one wanted to listen/hear what he had to say, and so he realised that if he could bring together enough beings and assist and support them within and throughout the exact process he had walked, to realise who they really are as life as all as one as equal as he realised himself, if enough beings commit, dedicate and discipline themselves to apply and live this process in realising ‘who they really are’ and how to live, experience and express and apply you here in every moment of breath as ‘who you really are’: Maybe then many more will also start hearing, in this way: Human beings will start hearing.

You may ask: But, what do you mean by ‘no-one wanted to hear’ – see, when in and as your mind, all that exists is your mind, a programmed system, therefore you are programmed in such a way to only ‘hear’ what you are programmed to ‘hear’, you will only listen to that which you ‘know’ and which will not ‘compromise’ ‘who you think you are’ of and as the mind. Thus, you will only listen/hear that which keeps you in the limitations and boundaries of your mind-set as ‘who you think you are’. And what we’re saying here, through the material and video interviews – is way beyond the ‘mind’s programmed nature’ of human beings.

Therefore some will fear what is said, ridicule it, judge it, resist it – because they fear losing ‘who they think they are’ of the mind as the mind and will only listen/hear that which will validate/support their existence as a mind as ‘who they think they are’ and will thus discard anything else, such as what we are presenting here.

Because here we say: ‘Stop your mind entirely – everything and all that you have ever thought/believed to be ‘who you are’ is not real, but a mind system design’. And this frightens beings, because the mind is all they’ve ever known, ever trusted, ever believed in – but what they don’t realise is that there’s ‘something else’ – ‘beyond the existence of the mind’ = which is who you really are as life as all as one as equal. And it takes a seven year process minimum to walk – to realise it for yourself, dependant on your application. Bernard had to walk for fourteen years, he found ways/methods to ‘shorten’ this process for each one.

So therefore, beings didn’t want to hear him – they were too afraid of ‘losing themselves as the mind’ according to which they have defined ‘who they are’ and therefore he decided he’ll have to ‘approach the situation’ in a different way, by working one-one-one with beings and guide them directly through this process he had walked, and this is how and why I am here. I was but a waitress in a coffee shop, just finished school when I met Bernard and my process started.

But he realised that in walking with beings individually, directly one-one-one would take lifetimes – thus, there had to be another way, to assist and support many human beings at once, but couldn’t find a way.

Then the Portal opened – as I moved out of my human physical body, and experienced myself within the dimensions. And this was also still when demons existed, I’d worked with demons before the Portal opened, I transcended my fear of them and thus I was not afraid, it was actually a demon who was the first being who came within and as my human physical body, the first moment I moved out completely. The reason I mention this is because I have also seen that ‘point’ as ‘who each being really is’ – and the first moment I saw it, was when I observed a demon, while in the dimensions – I could see there within this demon, there I see who this demon really is as life as all as one as equal. But this being believed himself to be a ‘demon’ – ‘lost’, see, demons were no different to human beings at the moment, also ‘lost’ within a mind construct, just like human beings are lost within and as a mind construct/system. So, I took the demon, while I was within the dimensions – and placed the demon within and as me, I stood one and equal as the demon as me as ‘who we really are’, and I held him and I showed the demon as me ‘who he really is’ as one and equal as me as ‘who we really are’ as Life. And because of quantum time = the demon immediately transcended the ‘mind construct’ belief of ‘what he is as demon as who he thought he was’ and realised himself in one moment.

This ‘point’ – Life, existent within and as each one, I have also seen, this as who we really are exists within and as each one – even within the demons.

Now the question: What is ‘Life’ – what do I mean when I say ‘life’:

Even though the demon ‘realised himself’ = it does not stop there, when you realise you, it doesn’t mean you ‘stop’ and ‘wait’ and ‘it is done’ – no, now you have to go into self application, self expression as life, and this is what it means:

In realising ‘who you are’ as Life = you stand here as all as one as equal as existence in it’s entirety as one and equal as you, you ‘become’ the living manifestation of life as all as one as equal as everything and all that exists. In this – your responsibility is towards you as all of existence – to walk this process together with all of existence as you, until each and every single refraction/ex­pression/being is one and equal as you as life, until all are one and equal as life = so, you apply you, you move you, you direct you = until all are one and equal as life: Until it is done, no matter what – you walk here in every moment of breath.

So, in the opening of the Portal – we focused on assisting and supporting all dimensional beings to understand ‘oneness and equality’ in application, because the dimensions were a mess, no different to how the world exists at the moment. The dimensions were not even near human beings, not even here on this ‘earth plane’ – only the demons existed amongst human beings. All the other dimensional beings were in different various dimensional planes, different heavens, different alternate dimensional existences, different dimensional planets – all existing in separation and fear of themselves and each other, also lost within their own ideas/perception of themselves as mind constructs = all of the dimensions were lost in mind constructs, just like human beings on earth.

The channels and psychics within this world were not channeling ‘actual real dimensional beings’ – there were absolutely no dimensional beings, coming here through the channels that exists in this world, at all – there were literally only demons here amongst human beings.

See – ‘dimensional beings’ (the one’s that were not ‘demons’) did not enjoy coming down to earth, amongst human beings to ‘channel’ as they much preferred to remain blissfully ignorant of what was happening within and as this world together with human beings and be by themselves within the dimensions and do what they want to do – they did not care for human beings in any way whatsoever.

So, they devised a way to design the mind system of certain specific human beings known as ‘channels’ in this world – in such a way, to ‘presumably channel an actual dimensional being’, but what human beings as ‘channels’ within this world is currently ‘channeling’ is a ‘designed programmed system of information’ as a ‘being’ within and as their unconscious mind of their mind system, that works automatically so that an actual dimensional being doesn’t have to come through from the dimensions. The ‘programmed designed channel system’ in the ‘channels’ unconscious mind, as a ‘programmed designed being-system’ speaking information according to which it was designed to speak – then dimensional beings didn’t have to come through at all, as the ‘channel system’ designed and programmed as the human being as channels’ unconscious mind did it automatically. Therefore – the ‘channeling here, you sent us’ and this is all ‘channelings’ that come through human beings as ‘channels’ within this world = is not actual real dimensional beings at all, but they are channeling an ‘information designed programmed system’ from within their own unconscious mind.

All of the dimensions, for the past three years have been in the process of establishing oneness and equality within and as themselves, there exist no more demons, no more ascended masters/gods/god­desses/angels, no more ‘dimensional planes’, no more ‘dimensional planets’, no more ‘soul constructs’ – all of the dimensions, all dimensional beings are one and equal within and as their individual processes.

With regards to Bernard finding a way of how we’re able to assist and support ‘more beings’ at once within this process:

We have focused for the first two and a half years only on the dimensions – in assisting and supporting them within their process of being able to assist and support human beings effectively here on earth, then to also open the website and do video interviews to assist and support human beings from here, while dimensional beings assist and support human beings as themselves, as dimensional beings assist and support themselves within their processes. So human beings and dimensional beings may assist and support themselves one and equal = within t his process of realising ‘who we really are’.

And therefore, the website is here, the video interviews is here = for those who will hear, this is how we found will be the most effective way for human beings to hear and realise and understand what is really going on within this world and human beings.

So the question: Are you ready to hear?

Understand that what is coming through ‘channels’ at the moment is a ‘programmed design system’ within and as their unconscious mind, not an actual dimensional being – such as for instance this ‘channeling’ you sent us. I am certain of this, because I am within the interdimensional existence, just like any other dimensional being – there is no ‘Sanat Kumara’ that exists, there is no more ‘soul constructs’ that exists – the entire soul construct was a system to enslave human beings to their own mind and was able to be removed interdimensionally while the dimensions were within their process of standing up and understanding oneness and equality as ‘who they really are’.

Thus, I will leave you with some video interviews and articles to go through – and after this that I have given perspective for and going through the video’s and material – you decide for you, within and as self honesty as you – whether what is said within these ‘channelings’ stand within and as oneness and equality as life, assisting and supporting human beings individually to stand up and take self responsibility to assist and support themselves as life as who they really are and whether what is said is ‘valid’.

Bernard Poolman - The History and purpose of channeling

This is a fascinating question. When you go back to about 1900 and study the work of Baird Spalding – Life and teachings of the masters of the far-east, you notice an interesting situation. The nature of interdimensionality is part of life. Beings appear, communicate, walk on water – all normal in that time.

This book entered my life in a strange way. When my father-in – law died, he was a deep trance medium and a healer on earth, I communicated with him the first time two days after his death. The session was difficult and strained. He told me he left me a gift and told me where to find it in his office. These books really tickled my fancy and interest; this event took place in the early 1990's. This was the last time I spoke to my father-in–law till the intedimensional portal opened. Not that I did not attempt to contact him. I tried all the time, because we use to investigate and discuss interesting topics all the time, but to no avail—he remained silent.

What he explained to me once we were face to face at the portal, was that to make sure he was not recycled to Earth by the White Light, he had to act as if he was mad. When beings acted mad in the dimensions, they were normally left alone as the white light did not see them as a threat that they could wake up from their conditioning.

I studied the books of Baird Spalding and found something fascinating. Although much of what was to come and technologies to be discovered was indicated, by the 1950's all disappeared. Even the publishers indicated that since Spalding's death no-one knew where the stuff is he referred to in his books or what happened to the information.

I followed the channelings of all beings I could find. Tested the practical workability of it here on earth. Will this change the experience of us here on earth? , was the question I asked. Is this how God wanted me to experience him as his Image and Likeness?

Some of the channeled information I experienced as real in my reality although it became clear only as real as I would believe in it and create it as I see it as part of myself. I used Kinesiology to infuse and test applications. I did this for a period of 12 years. I established my own library and collected books, looking for the answer that was apparently me, but I simply could not find it. I went into seclusion to meditate and silence all – to no avail.

The reason; I am still HERE. And this here is the world. I must pay rent, buy food, educate children. Nothing made sense.

The channels were disseminating beautiful words and inner experiences which I applied and followed but it made no practical difference to HERE. I listened to people giving discourses and teaching about channels and new energies. Fascinating, when you got close to them, you could see – they are not living or becoming in all of their experience what they are teaching. A separation occurs. They still pay rent, need money for food and are slaves to a system – the system that controls this reality. Unless they get enough people to believe in the channels and buy products related to the channels, their work was to no avail and their lives end in misery. Many lives did end in misery or giving up.

The question was why? All these words of hope, of beautiful inner experiences, no change to the HERE of the world. No change to our reality.

I contemplated and tested. Let me be in a cave as a sage and find Peace and Nirvana. Will I able to be present Here and be able to make a practical substantial difference? What is directing the HERE we experience as the world in our day to day participation? Why did the words and examples of Jesus or Osho or Buddha or any being that reached inner greatness not make a difference to the HERE in this world.

Obviously, when I studied the beings, I noticed that what they presented was not practical in this world. What became clear is that this world is based on groups of beings that amalgamate with beliefs and then follow it as something greater than themselves, waiting for some intervention to save them or waiting to die to go to heaven.

All we're waiting for is each other or an event. Some tried to change. Gandhi did, but look, he changed a country, but not the people. Mandela he changed a country but not the source of the people or how the people acted. He did nothing to change the self directed principle in the being as the being. He could not. Each must do that for self. It was clear that we are at some level responsible, but we seem unable to understand this responsibility while we are in the middle of survival and making money.

Eventually, I distanced myself from the channels and psychics – I could get no practical way that will make a difference in this world. It was clear that HERE in this world, we are alone and that not any one man in this world will make a difference. We require agreement between all. We require realization that we are the creators of this reality in all ways.

How is that possible to reach such agreement between all in this world as it is HERE now in its present form and manifestation? Impossible with everything that we know and understand now, impossible in all religions, by then even the channelings became a religion of inner journeys, beautiful words – No new INFORMATION. NO PRACTICAL DIRECTION – NOTHING that will prepare the way for the CHILDREN to come or help us realize that we are the practical answer to the problem we have accepted as our world and reality.

I researched practical ways to breakthrough. Then a flicker of light. If we ALL could READ effectively! Maybe that will help. I pushed reading. Some beings responded and expanded, but the notion that we are responsible for the HERE of our reality – No ways – immediate deep despair and depression came over me.

Then I discovered the Demons. A challenge – will they be able to possess me? Can't they be helped? This led to the portal opening and a series of events that led me to the dimensions and the White Light and the Annunaki and the Angels and much more.

Then – where are all the masters that were channeling? I spoke to them. They were like me – they explained to me that all channels were preprogrammed according to the instructions of the White Light and the Annunaki. This started in seriousness with Alice Bailey. My reality was being shattered daily. The anger grew. How is this possible? Where is God? What is going on? Despair. I will end in the same heaven in the same situation. NO WAY ! There must be another way. What am I willing to practically do? Am I willing to tempt fate and death? There was nothing else. Just ME. Am I going to accept this? Can this be directed?

For months I tested and probed and communicated. Day after day. No answer. I found beings spread throughout the universe. Many were in absolute despair. They said to me there was no answer. They have tried. God abandoned creation? Or was there no God? Is there only me? Have I done this to myself?

I looked at all practical possibilities. If we direct this situation, where is an answer possible? I went into the darkness and the light and everywhere only found deceit and evil. Power and greed, fear and disdain. Many heavens waiting for god. I was not alone in this. Sunette walked with me. We compared notes. Some dimensional beings walked with me. We contemplated. I discussed this with Anu, Alice Bailey, Jesus, Mohammed, Osho and many more, Einstein, Jung, Freud, Tesla, beings that just crossed over. Testing information.

No direction stepped forth. The first point that was clear was that we must all come together as one HERE and see what we have allowed. We have to stop. The process of direction started. The gods and goddesses and masters and Satan and the devil were not happy. They had a controlled certain way of doing things that gave them a certain standing in “reality”. Satan and the devil put up the greatest direct fight. They called me a puny human being. What can I do? They blacked out heaven and hijacked Sunette and disappeared with her into the dimensions. What to do. I made a choice. I will not stand for this. I see in each this Oneness and Equality that I see as me. We each have this we can call life. I must interfere. I must act and prove that there is something more. I acted and with the assistance of some beings, all was brought together as one. Still there was fear and deceit. What if god returned? We have turned heaven upside down. We will deal with god when it is HERE, but if I look at it, god would be really pissed off if he sees what we have allowed reality to become. All we have to work with is here in this moment. We must act. If we wait, we will keep on experiencing what we have allowed ourselves to become.

We closed the channels and found all the ways it worked. It was explained. Yet, channeling continued. We sat in the being when they channeled to see where the information was coming from. It came from the MIND. We challenged the MIND, the universal mind, all minds, there were many. It was clear that a process is going to be necessary to understand ourselves. All in heaven was challenged to face self and apply forgiveness. Heaven did participate even if it was only from the perspective that there was no alternative. It was clear that we were infinitely stuck in the same cycles. Both heaven and earth were stuck. We were responsible.

Then it became clear that the information through the channels were going nowhere. It was the inner journey or mind creation of beings with no practical value in stopping, war, famine, crime, abuse or death. Channelings have become inspired beliefsystems that is perpetuating itself like a religion, but is of no practical value for all as one.

What was clear was that death is the equalizer for all on earth. When a being died, they were so grateful to be free from the body and mind.

The body and mind became more clear that it was a structural sound resonance of words and thoughts that seemed stable, but was not. Anu explained its creation as creator of physicality. Fascinating. I discussed this situation with the planets, the universe, the animal kingdom, plants, nature and all agreed. What the MIND of man cannot control was the forces of nature, or all the animals, or the bees, or the bugs or the viruses or death.

They all agreed to become the teachers of man. To stop man from destroying everything through fear and ignorance and survival.

So, channels will continue on earth but no substantial new practical information will come forth. It has become like a religion. Look, the pastor read the bible and prays and become inspired and speaks in the church – NO – this is channeling from his mind the compound energy of his belief. There is no difference between a channel and a pastor. They are both promoting hope to suppress fear. NO CERTAINTY. So, man kind is facing an interesting time. Only time and events will prove this. The guideline is animals, nature, death and all that the mind cannot control. Many will die, new diseases will proliferate. Storms, floods, you name it. All families will be touched.

We will assist, but the process of realizing what we have allowed is personal. Children now born are coming to correct the past, if we are able to assist them not to be trapped by the MIND.

The money system must stop. – See all writings about money. We will focus on the children. First the recently departed children. In fact, the primary assistance on earth now is from children. Many dimensional beings are still in process. When you now cross over, you face all creations, thoughts and past lives you participated in. An absolute recreation of self through forgiveness. Earth is easier than heaven at the moment. That will change and as heaven stand up as each that die face themselves and what they have allowed, assistance on earth will become more directed, but no help is allowed to remove the consequences of what we as mankind have allowed. We must stop and take responsibility and the mess will increase on earth till we wake up. Nothing else is certain. We will stop, either here on earth we will take responsibility or with death we will take responsibility. We will be no more than the responsibility we are willing to take. This is the end of time.

We are grateful to all that stood up and dedicated themselves to freedom and life. Slavery will be no more – we do not know how long it will take. We estimate we are only able to help children up to 7–8 years old. – Few adults will have the discipline to recreate themselves as I showed in the article: I, the living word. Yet, nothing is impossible.
Questions and Perspectives: Unconscious Mind Pre-programmed Channels
Typed by Winged

Date : 18/10/2007

Question:

For several weeks in June, I transcribed my „conversations“ with Saint Thérese of Lisieux (aka The Little Flower). If anyone is interested in reading and/or commenting, please PM me. Edit: I did have some text posted here but choose not to leave it up indefinitely. Please contact me if you are interested. Thanks!

Perspective:

Hi

Many beings from within the dimensions were specifically reincarnated here on earth to experience a specific life for specific purposes upon their return to the afterlife/dimen­sions.

One of the reasons was for the specific purpose of channeling – the beings' specific life experience, all information of the beings specific life experience on earth, was ‘downloaded' and ‘saved' within the Soul, within the Soul Construct that was manifested within the Solar plexus of each human being on earth interdimensionally. Such beings' life experiences were not ‘logged' into the Akashic Records and such specific beings' who was sent to earth for a specific purpose to experience a specific life – was inserted with what is referred to as a: ‘Clean Slate Soul'.

The information of the specific dimensional being's experience as a human being on earth was downloaded and ‘saved' within the Soul – the Soul was connected to the dimensional being, but not of the dimensional being, meaning that the Soul was actually able to be removed upon entering the dimensions after death on earth, as it was a mere circular construct within human beings, connected to the dimensional being within the human physical body (defined as a human being), to download all information of the dimensional beings' experience here on earth as a human being.

When such specific beings ‘die' on earth, that was sent to earth to experience a specific life and have specific life experiences, with which all such specific beings' information of their entire specific life experience was downloaded and saved within their Soul – the Soul will be removed from the dimensional being upon entering the dimensional realm. The moment the Soul is removed – the being themselves that had been sent to earth, that has just come from their specific life experience on earth are sent for what is referred to as: Re-cycling. They'd be reinserted with another ‘Clean Slate Soul' and experience other different lives on earth – having no remembrance or recollection of the specific life they had ‘just' experienced.

The reason such specific beings' specific life experiences' on earth ‘downloaded' and ‘saved' information was not stored within the Akashic Records was for the following reason: The moment they removed the Soul Construct from the specific being – this particular Soul only consisted of information of the specific life experience the dimensional being was sent to experience – they'd actually design and create a ‘being' of the ‘downloaded' and ‘saved' information from within this particular Soul of the specific dimensional being who was sent to experience a specific life experience. Creating a ‘being' that is a system of information that speaks/communi­cates/interac­ts as the information it is. Therefore – certain human beings in this world ‘channeled' was but information systems presented as real ‘beings'.

And this is exactly what happened with the dimensional being that was specifically sent to incarnate as: Saint Thérèse of Lisieux (aka The Little Flower).

The dimensional being that incarnated on earth as Saint Thérèse was specifically sent to earth to experience themselves as the human being referred to as Saint Thérèse. This process works as follows: Within the dimensions existed a realm that was referred to as the ‘Zombie Zone' where dimensional beings merely floated around purposelessly and aimlessly – they were suppressed by a dimensional mind consciousness system which wiped them completely of all and any remembrances of themselves and their own existence: All they did was ‘float' and constantly and continuously move around within the ‘Zombie Zone' realm. These beings were specifically placed here for specific tasks such as the task the being had who incarnated as Saint Thérèse. Thus, the being who incarnated as Saint Thérèse was taken here from within the ‘Zombie Zone' realm.

The being (to incarnate as Saint Thérèse) is then inserted with a ‘Clean Slate Soul' – the Soul Construct which will download and save all information of this particular dimensional beings' life experience on earth as the human being Saint Thérèse incarnated.

The reason why the being who incarnated specifically as the human being Saint Thérèse, died at such a young age, is because the necessary information was obtained for the specific purpose of transforming the information from the beings' life experiences into a manifested system design as a ‘being'.

The reason this course of action was required to be taken to transform downloaded information from such a specific beings' specific life experience that is retrieved from within the Soul – was because the downloaded information from within the Soul contained the ‘essence of experience' – meaning that the downloaded information of the being's life experience was of the being themselves and thus contained actual moment experiences the being had in ‘real life' on earth as a human being. Such actual moment experience contained an essence and it is from this essence that the ‘system designed information being' was manifested.

Therefore, the moment the being incarnated as the human being Saint Thérèse, had the sufficient information necessary as downloaded information of life experiences on earth within the Soul Construct – the being as the human being Saint Thérèse was removed from earth.

The moment the being as human being Saint Thérèse entered the dimensions – the Soul with downloaded information of the being's life experience on earth will be removed from the being and the being will either be sent for Re-Cycling to reincarnate again or be sent back upon return to the ‘Zombie Zone Realm'. The downloaded information from within the Soul (which are ‘captured moments' of life experiences on earth), which still contain the essence of experience, almost like a ‘life essence', will then be used to design what is referred to as a ‘manifested information system design as a ‘being''. Or they would actually design a mind consciousness system from the information the dimensional being obtained through the downloading of life experiences within the Soul Construct as a human being on earth. The dimensional being would then be inserted as this mind consciousness system consisting of downloaded information of an earth life's experience and then in such a way ‘activate' the mind consciousness system – therefore becoming a system that communicates as the information it consists of.

Though in Saint Thérèse's case – the being who was the human being as Saint Thérèse on earth was sent back to the ‘Zombie Zone' and all the downloaded information from within the Soul, as all the being experienced on earth as the human being Saint Thérèse, was used to manifest the dimensional ‘system designed information being' Saint Thérèse.

The channeling of such a dimensional ‘manifested system designed information being' Saint Thérèse for instance worked as follows: A specific human being is then ‘selected' here on earth to have ‘channeling' abilities – though such ‘channeling' consisted of the following practice: This dimensional ‘manifested system designed information being' Saint Thérèse would be infused within the unconscious mind of the selected human being as the unconscious mind of the human being. Instead of such human beings' unconscious mind being connected to the entire world as all of humanity (meaning being plugged into that what is referred to as the ‘unified consciousness field of the world as all of humanity as mind consciousness systems), such selected human beings' unconscious mind consist of for instance the dimensional ‘manifested system designed information being' Saint Thérèse. The actual ‘starting point' of when such ‘channelings'/con­versation is initiated is at/during a specific pre-prepared/pre-programmed moment – the unconscious mind is then activated, which consist as the dimensional ‘manifested system designed information being' Saint Thérèse and voila – the ‘channeling' is undergo.

Thus – the Saint Thérèse you're communicating to is a dimensional ‘manifested system designed information being' Saint Thérèse – also connected to the entire religious system of this world, also specifically all the information of the religion that the being as human being Saint Thérèse practiced.

Thus – what you're communicating to is the manifestation of the dimensional ‘manifested system designed information being' Saint Thérèse as your unconscious mind. The being who was incarnated as the human being Saint Thérèse – never channeled. You have been communicating to a dimensional ‘manifested system designed information being' Saint Thérèse as your unconscious mind.

Because this dimensional ‘manifested system designed information being' Saint Thérèse is your unconscious mind – it is so ‘part of you' as you – that it's going to require quite a process for you to ‘remove' this unconscious mind manifestation as the dimensional ‘manifested system designed information being' Saint Thérèse. See – the unconscious mind is the foundation upon which your entire mind consciousness system within you is based and founded and exists within and as your entire human physical body. The unconscious mind doesn't only exist within your head/brain area – but is manifested and infused within and as your entire human physical body. Therefore I said that this dimensional ‘manifested system designed information being' Saint Thérèse has become ‘part of you' as you – because it's manifested as the unconscious mind – it's manifested within and as the entirety of you. When you channel – you merely ‘activate' the unconscious mind as this dimensional ‘manifested system designed information being' Saint Thérèse and you ‘communicate'/‘chan­nel'.

I understand that this must be difficult to comprehend – though you are able to assist yourself and your structural resonance is assisting you as well. The only way you are going to be able to assist yourself in no longer being a slave to a dimensional ‘manifested system designed information being' Saint Thérèse as your unconscious mind – is to let go of the mind completely – to stop the mind.

The ‘situation' is the following: That you've defined ‘who you are' according to your ability to channel and also according to this dimensional ‘manifested system designed information being' Saint Thérèse as your unconscious mind. Defined from the perspective that its become so much part of you as you because of the manifestation of this dimensional ‘manifested system designed information being' Saint Thérèse as your unconscious mind – therefore, it's to altogether STOP the mind in its entirety through forgiveness and practical application.

Understand also, that you're not alone in this situation as there are many human beings within this world that's currently ‘stuck' with such ‘manifested system designed information being' as their unconscious mind and that each one will have to STOP their mind in its entirety to finally be ‘free' and release themselves from the enslavement of such manifested systems as their unconscious mind.
