Jesus, South Carolina and Prescription Drugs

Tragic events in the news these days.

So sorry to hear of the loss of the planet of Reverend Pinckney.

 Rev. Clementa Pinckney was one of the nine people to die in Wednesday night’s shooting at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston. In the 2012 documentary, “The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross with Henry Louis Gates, Jr.," Pinckney was asked why black political participation mattered. Here’s what he said: “We don’t have the privilege to say our vote doesn’t count, because history tells us differently.”Learn more: http://to.pbs.org/1JYmWII

So amazed to hear of the amount of grace, love and compassion that emanates from that church.

"We forgive you." Powerful sentiments indeed.

I heartily agree with the Detroit Free Press article that asks "Why aren't people burning the Conferate Flag more?"  But burning the flag is just burning who or what we are....

Which brings us to SSRI drugs. (Prozac, paxil, zoloft, seratonin inhibitors)

Every single mass shooting since Columbine (that's 70 since 1982, according to Bill Moyers) has had pretty dramatic events in common.

Let's examine them for a moment, shall we?

White, young men or boys, filled with rage. Check.

Easy access to guns.  
Check.

A history of psychotropic drugs use or prescription. 
Check.

Wait, what?

Every single mass shooting has had all three elements involved.

How can that be?

Well, here's some stats.

What to do? The NIMH (Nat Inst of Mental Health) posted A WARNING on its website that psychiatrists were prescribing psychotropic drugs to children, and the drugs had not been cleared by the FDA (or any studies) to prove them to be safe.

That post has been taken down, but it was cached, and I included it in "It's a Wonderful Afterlife." 

Psychiatrists, under pressure from their clients, are prescribing drugs that are supposed to be safe to adults to children, and they're doing so illegally, immorally. 

So, how can we stop this if the NRA won't allow us to discuss easy access to guns, if the drug companies won't allow us to discuss how these drugs may be affecting children's brains?  We discuss the roots of rage until we're blue in the face, but until we address the elephant in the room, it will continue on.



Now, what has this all got to do with Jesus?

Recently, I've been gathering reports of what people say under deep hypnosis about Jesus.  I've written about them in the book "Flipside" and "It's a Wonderful Afterlife."  And there's a clip of one of those stories in the DVD "Flipside."

But I've expanded the research into a new area.  Since every incident that I've filmed or found includes an event where a person's body suddenly reacts as if a person is in the room, I began to question that part of it.

Let me explain.

In every incident, whether it was a person having a "past life memory" where they claim "they knew Jesus" - or if it's a medium accessing what can only be described as "the energy of Jesus" or someone who bears a resemblance to him (they're not wearing name tags to be sure, but they describe the same kind of persona) these people have a visceral reaction to this "presence."


Their cheeks turn red, tears fall from their eyes and they claim they "can't breathe."

So, thinking that this event can't be random, since it happens to everyone who claims to be in his presence - and mind you, psychosomatic illnesses include people breaking into hives or a rash, all apparently done with the power of the brain - these people describe the same symptoms.

So I asked Jesus, "what's up with that?"

I mean, I was interviewing a medium on camera, and during our three hour free wheeling discussion I asked if it was possible for "jesus" to appear in the session.  She described him in detail, and then I asked for "him to come closer" suddenly her face turned red, tears fell from her eyes and she "couldn't breathe."

I asked "Jesus" or whoever this entity was (How do they know its him?  I mean really? Is it the toga? Sometimes he shows up in a tee shirt, actually.  But he ain't wearing a name tag "I'm Him.") why he had that affect on people who were close in proximity to him.

And his reply (yes, I know, it's the medium replying on his behalf, whatever that construct means) was that "i'm energetically closer to the source than many people, most avatars in history are like that, it's just that when you get closer to us, you feel that energy."  Meaning the closer you stand to this person or their energy, the more intense the feeling, like standing near a light bulb.

Which brings me back to South Carolina.  Reverend Pinckney oversaw a church where they spoke of the love of Jesus on a daily basis.  I know that to be a fact because of the reaction these people had in the arraignment - "I forgive you" are three of the most powerful words we own, and they said them.

This kid has his own path and journey, he was taking drugs, but he's got a long history of rage.  But then so do every other mass killing shooter.  So the question is, what are we doing about it?  I suggest that the events are not separate - we should have compassion for everyone, including ourselves, by examining this research closly and figuring out a way to help our society, our planet, to benefit from its knowledge.

My two cents.
