SOLAR FLARE AND SOLAR MINIMUM – A POWERFUL COMBINATION!

SOLAR FLARE AND SOLAR MINIMUM – A POWERFUL COMBINATION!

HERE IS THE WEATHER FORECAST – AND IT’S IMPORTANT …. Do you remember The Big Storm of 15th October 1987? Do you remember Michael Fish, the BBC Weatherman saying that earlier that day a woman had called the BBC to say that a hurricane was on its way? Dapper as always, Michael Fish moved to reassure the British public – “don’t worry, there isn’t a storm coming.” I would hate to be known as the Michael Fish of the Indigo tribe – so here is the weather forecast according not to me, but to those who keep an eye on the much bigger picture. Please do take a few minutes to read, because it is here and it is now. WHAT ARE CORONAL MASS EJECTIONS? They are enormous bursts or expulsions of superheated gas (plasma) and magnetic field from the Sun’s corona. This is what is sometimes called “The Sun Sneezing”. According to the Space Weather Prediction Centre at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in US, “they can eject billions of tons of coronal material and carry an embedded magnetic field (frozen n flux) that is stronger than the background solar wind interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) strength….The fastest...

DOPAMINE – IT’S ADDICTIVE!

DOPAMINE – IT’S ADDICTIVE!

Dopamine, known as the “feel-good” chemical, is released by the brain into the system by certain triggers. It makes us feel good, gives us that kick of pleasure, a high. There are “natural highs” that can cause dopamine to be released, and there are also other substances – nicotine and alcohol, to name two of the most common. They both create a feeling of “all is well” – and then there is the let-down. In both cases, over time, you need more and more in order to reach that “feel good” point. They are both addictive. Dopamine is also released by prolonged exposure to social media – or, as I prefer to call it, anti-social media. The “hit” that comes from those likes to a selfie we have posted, or a comment we have made; the approval of our peers – these too have been proven to be just as addictive as nicotine and alcohol, and just as damaging to our health and wellbeing. It is not uncommon for the habits of smoking and drinking to start in those formative teenage years, when youngsters no longer look to their parents for approval (“likes”) but to their peers. Adolescence, that time...

IS THERE A LINK BETWEEN ELECTRO MAGNETIC FIELDS AND ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE?

IS THERE A LINK BETWEEN ELECTRO MAGNETIC FIELDS AND ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE?

Alan Cooke looks at the evidence Before anybody jumps to a conclusion that the above statement is illogical, let’s explore some of the possible connections. Whilst I am not advocating that this is the only cause, I can certainly make a case for it being a contributory factor in some instances. Alzheimer’s has historically been a disease attributed to old people but over the last 15-20 years there has been a substantial decrease in the average age of the onset which requires an explanation. It corresponds to the times where we have all increased our exposure to EMFs. It does not mean that this is causing it, but studies from some epidemiological research citing extremely low frequency exposures show a collaboration in the same area as microwaves. There is evidence that electricians and other people who have high exposures to ELFs have higher incidences of Alzheimer’s. There is literature showing that all of the neuro degenerative diseases have a role to play from being triggered by EMFs and there are plausible mechanisms by which this can occur. Two crucial studies published in China found that if you gave young rats a whole series of short EMF pulses for a certain...

Climate Change:  fact or fiction? with Marcus Allen

Climate Change: fact or fiction? with Marcus Allen

Climate change is a hot topic right now – pun very much intended.  CO2 emissions, rising sea levels, forest fires,  and the declining polar bear population – all are signs of global warming, we are told. But is that really true, or might it be (yet more) fake news? Marcus Allen is UK publisher of NEXUS, the magazine I like to call the Private Eye of the metaphysical world. He is also a well-known and highly-respected researcher and presenter in his own right, and on FRIDAY 15th NOVEMBER he is guest speaker at our INDIGO DISCUSSION GROUP. We shall meet as always in the private room at the Harvester at Beech Hurst Gardens, Haywards Heath  RH16 4BB, 10am – 12 noon or so, and Marcus will be sharing with the science that shatters some of the assumptions we have taken on board. You can try his quiz for yourself – it’s got a post all to itself: how many questions can you answer before you start Googling? If you would like to come along, please do. It would be useful to know if you are going to join us, so I can keep an eye on numbers – simply email...

EM-Radiation Research Trust holds UK Government to account for 5G roll-out

EM-Radiation Research Trust holds UK Government to account for 5G roll-out

The EM-Radiation Research Trust, who organised the highly-successful Radiation Health conference in London at the end of September, has sent an open letter to the UK Government putting it on notice and holding it to account over the roll-out of 5G amid serious world-wide concerns about the health risks. Read the letter here – I would say it’s blasting with both barrels: well done, EM-Radiation Research Trust!

Climate Change – is it real, and is it what we are being told?

Climate Change – is it real, and is it what we are being told?

Nowadays there is a lot of fake news, there is a lot of smoke and mirror stuff swirling around. None moreso perhaps than the issue of “climate change” – as if that was something new, as if the climate had never changed before, ever. If we look back over history, it is not hard to find, even in recent history, quite marked changes in our climate – the River Thames has frozen over, for instance, more than 20 times between 1309 and 1814, and on five on those occasions the ice on the river was thick enough for people to skate on it, including 1814. More recently people skated on the river in 1963. Researcher and author Gregg Braden, in his book Turning Point,  publishes data rom Energy and Environment vol 19, Nº 1 (2008), in the form of a graph showing warming and cooling of our climate over the last 2000 years. in the Medieval Warming Period (820 – 1040 CE (used to be AD, now CE), the rise in temperatures were four times greater than what we are experiencing now – and guess what? It was followed by a period of cooling, a mini Ice Age. Seems I...

How to protect your home from EMFs

How to protect your home from EMFs

There is a lot of debate about protecting yourself and your home from WiFi radiation, or EMFs, or microwave radiation, or 5G. Some will say that nothing works, the only remedy is avoidance – and that is getting increasingly difficult, of course, as the networks multiply and cover even more of the countryside. Others swear by crystals (especially Shungite); or by gadgets and gizmos that claim to “harmonise” or “neutralise” the damaging radiation waves. Talking to those who are seriously affected by this radiation, it becomes clear that, as with so much, there is not a “one size fits all” solution. There is protective clothing, and grounding sheets, and paint that apparently reflects the harmful radiation. I have seen Electrosensitive people coming to workshops and conferences dressed almost like beekeepers, clad head to toe in protective clothing such is their level of sensitivity. This report gives some ideas and suggestions – what I would say is, do your own research, do your own homework, understand that what works for your friend, or the guy who is selling you whatever it is, may not work for you – and that is not your fault, it’s just the way it is. 7-Essential-Ways-to-Make-Your-Home-Safe-FINAL
