When I decided to write about the future relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union, I supposed that I could eviscerate the issues discussed during the transition period, which will end on 31 December 2020, in an 800 to 1000-word post .
Yesterday though, a sudden realisation struck me: I had to lay solid foundations before attempting to describe what lies ahead.
Therefore, I've organised my posts in the following way:
1) A Brief History of the European Union, from the Kalergi Plan to the Lisbon Treaty.
2) The Present--Part 1: Military alliances, economy in Euroland and in the countries who haven't adopted the Euro.
3) The Present--Part 2: Civil society--economic results Fallout, impact of uncontrolled immigration especially on Sweden, Italy, France and Germany, and the support to the EU.
4) The Justice System: The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), the EU Arrest Warrant (EAW).
5) How the EU works: EU Parliament, EU Council, EU Commission, EU President, EU Troika, EU institutions and democracy.
6) The Future of the EU: EU Army, EURO, new member states, freedom of speech and of expression, justice system.
And, at last but not least:
7) The Future of the Relationship between the UK and the EU: what's already been agreed upon, and what's being debated.
I hope I'll be able to offer you a concise but deep understanding of this complex subject, and as usual I'll include a list of resources like videos, articles, websites and books so you can investigate it further if you so wish, and make up your own mind.
SAVE THE DATE: The first post of this series will go live on 25 March.
In the meantime, stay safe dear Seekers, and let me know your thoughts on this EU-UK series in the comments below.
Dear Seekers, apologies for posting today and not yesterday. I had technical issues and couldn't access my website. Luckily, everything is working fine today so, without further ado, let's begin. Enjoy!
To a person who has been using energy healing in her daily life for 30 plus years like me, the relationship between emotions and physical diseases is obvious. I've studied many books to understand this link from the Western science perspective, but, however well-written, they all left me wanting.
At last, I found the answer to this specific quest of mine when I watched the presentation that eye surgeon Dr. Jerry Tennant gave at the Electric Universe Conference "Future Science" in Phoenix Arizona in 2017; and I'm excited to share it with you.
This subject is quite complex, so I'll sum up the findings of Dr. Tennant and his staff in the hope that this blog post will stimulate you enough at least to watch the YouTube video, "Jerry Tennant: Healing is Voltage -- The Physics of Emotions | EU2017" to deepen the understanding of this topic.
When Dr. Tennant learnt that one sixth of the total death of soldiers between 2008 and 2009 was due to suicide, he realised that the pharmaceutical remedies were not effective in treating the PTS syndrome; and that a change of paradigm in Western medicine was in order.
Like everything in the universe is based on psychics, the reactions in the human body are based on the principals of physics and not chemistry.
This means that our body is an electronic device, and the voltage is measured by the PH.
According to his findings, all chronic diseases are characterised by inadequate voltage going through the affected organs, which consequently cannot make new cells and eliminate toxins.
Dr. Tennant and his staff discovered that there are four battery packs in the body:
- in the muscles: they recharge when we exercise;
- in the cell membranes;
- in the mitochondria;
- and in the DNA.
Like in the Chinese Meridian System, the energy goes ups and down our spines and through the ganglia it reaches our organs, as you see in the picture below:
They also established a connection between chronic diseases and the inability of the battery packs to hold a charge. This happens when:
- The level of the thyroid hormones (which control the voltage in the mitochondria and in the cells) is abnormal;
- There are scars that cross one of these circuits, making them short-circuit;
- Emotions (stored in the body as magnetic fields) stuck in one of the battery packs;
- Dental infections, because all circuits (meridians) go through specific teeth, which act like circuit breakers: an infection in our teeth lowers the voltage in the meridian, affecting all the connected organs.
Furthermore, Dr Tennant and his team noticed that the health problems in the majority of their patients affected by chronic diseases like cancer, started with an emotional event that caused a magnetic field in a tooth. Emotions obstructed the flow of electrons through a tooth by blocking the dental pulp, thus lowering the voltage in that circuit, allowing for decay and dental infection to occur, lowering the voltage in that circuit more and more. It's not a surprise then to discover that the leading cause of cancer is an infection in a bone around a tooth, because a root canal treatment shuts down 63% of our immune system.
(By the way, an important consequence of having a tooth pulled out, especially in teenagers, is the inability to deal with stress).
To heal the patient, the magnetic field created by emotions must be erased, and this can be done by creating a stronger magnetic field. This can be done in different ways, by applying energy healing, using special devices or by treating the teeth.
I hope this piece has blown your mind away as well.
Please let me know in the comment section your thoughts about his fascinating subject.
Save the date: my new blog post will go live on 19th February. As an Italian living in the UK I'd like to offer you my perspective on Brexit.
Dear Seekers, in November I was preparing the promised blog post on the consequences of the Electric Universe Theory on healing therapies, when all of a sudden life decided that it was time for me to go back to work after a few months of unemployment.
As my six-month contract in Customer Service expired last August, I decided to reconsider my career path (once again, I may add). With a Master's degree in Business Economics, among other qualifications and experiences, there must be a job out there in which I could use my degree and realize my full potential, right? I wanted to influence a company's policies, not just follow them.
Thus, I looked for roles in Quality Assurance and in Management. When I discovered that Quality Assurance positions were not easy to come by in my area, I focused on Management. Although I was invited to two job interviews, I didn't pass either.
I knew I could do the jobs I had been interviewed for, having already held managerial positions, so what was the underlying reason for my failures?
After fruitless weeks of soul-searching, I finally had the much sought-after breakthrough. In meditation, it dawned to me that I wanted a job with a shiny title to make the people I love happy and proud of me.
Why did I even tried to convince myself that it was what I wanted? I love helping people, and I feel the need to cultivate my passions, like writing my blog posts and studying esoteric and occult subjects. A manager's work is very demanding, doesn't allow much "switching off". That day, the Universe made it clear to me what my path is, at least for the next few years, and it requires me to have the time and energy to walk it. I felt relieved, and at peace with myself. It all made sense, at last.
The following Monday, while I was preparing the famous blog post (which I had scheduled to be published two days later), I was offered a two-week project, starting the following day. Not an inspiring job by any stretch of the imagination, but a job nonetheless. Things were moving. I had accepted my destiny and was back in the flow of life.
Then, a few days before finishing the project, I was offered an interview for a Customer Service position with a renowned local company, which was going to take place the following week. You guessed it, I got the job a few hours after the interview and started to work with them a few days later.
I know it's early days, however it feels like a dream job. I also know that if I didn't invest a few months looking for the wrong jobs for me, I'd still be wondering whether there is something better I could do with my life.
This time of the year it's customary to declare one's New Year's Resolutions. Mine is simple: I want to keep listening to the Universe so that I can stay in the flow of life, open to the abundance coming my way.
What are you New Year's Resolutions, dear Seekers? I'd love you to share them with us.
And on this note, I'd like to wish all of my Seekers a very Merry Christmas and a Wonderfully Abundant 2020!
Save the day: my next post will go live on 22 January. I will discuss the consequences of the Electric Universe Theory on healing therapies.
Dear Seekers, you may have noticed that I haven't published the blog post I promised on 22 May. Researching, writing a post and publishing it take me about a week every month. It's a lot of time for me now.
Therefore, I've decided to take some time off to decide whether blogging will still be part of my life.
In the meantime, take care, stay safe, own your destiny and be a STAR!
I have always wondered where our archetypes, symbols and myths originated, and with this blog post I hope to instill in you enough curiosity to desire to explore this subject further.
A few months ago I came across a series of YouTube videos titled Discourses on an alien sky by writer, publisher, editor and corporate executive David Talbott with The Thunderbolts Projects.
The alien sky Talbott discusses is Earth's sky just a few thousand years ago. The author followed up on the Immanuel Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision (1950) theory that the terrifying mythical "gods" of the ancient world were actual planets and that the Earth was disturbed by their erratic movement.
Combining the Electric Universe theory with the hypothesis that a few thousand years ago the celestial configuration above our planet was very different from the one we see today, in the '70s Talbott set on a journey to find archeological evidence that could pass the acid test and prove it.
This investigation turned out to be very complex and apparently going nowhere. He discovered that in many different cultures (Greek, Latin, Babylonian, Egyptian,...) the word for sun was the same used to indicate Saturn, and the ancient sun didn't rise or set: it didn't move. This means that it should have been positioned at the North celestial pole, which is aligned with the star Polaris, the only motionless point in the sky looking up from Earth. And this didn't make any sense.
However, throughout the Near East the Universal Monarch appeared as a central sun called Axis and Pole of the World. For example, ancient Iranian astronomers referred to the pole as Saturn's home, like the Greek Neoplatonists.
He also noticed that the vast crescent depicted in the pictograms (see picture below) didn't behave like the crescent of our modern moon.
What if the description of the sky in ancient cultures worldwide was accurate? What if Saturn didn't have rings and Earth, Mars and Venus were its satellites, and the position relatively to our planet changed throughout the years?
After studying the subject for 20 years, Talbott eventually put the project on ice because he wasn't able to explain his theory in a way that scientists would accept.
However, not long afterwards, a specialist in orbital mechanics, Robert Grubaugh, got in touch with him. He had developed a model that could support Talbott's idea.
Here it is.
There used to be only 5 planets, not 8, with Earth the furthest planet from the Sun.
This planetary configuration circled around its own centre of gravity and simultaneously revolved around the sun.
The planets were extremely close together, interacting with each other gravitationally. In this collinear system, the planets stayed in line.
(from: Remembering the End of the World)
In the beginning, during the Golden Age, there was the Universal Monarch, the Firmly Seated God or Motionless Sun, the Great Sphere of Heaven close to the Earth:
It had a beautiful eye, heart and soul, the Mother Goddess: Venus, its daughter and spouse.
The planet Mars was referred to as the unborn hero, heart of heart and pupil of the eye.
The goddess was "The Great Star". It radiated its comet-like hair in all directions (plasma discharges). She was "The Glory of Heaven", the animated flame giving life to the ancient Sun God.
Her place was right at centre of the sun, and this translated in the symbol of the wheel:
As the configuration evolved, the spokes became first 3, generating the Tri-form or Trifold goddess of ancient mythology (Diana, the Three Graces, ...), and the symbol of the pyramid in occultism.
Later, they became four, described as the Four Luminous Winds, the four Pillars of Heaven etc..; and five (see picture below).
Day and night arrived with the great crescent of Saturn, which circled from the West at dawn to the North at noon, to the East at sunset and to the South at midnight:
But the small planet Mars was moved by resonance into an increasing elliptical orbit. It began to oscillate between the two larger planets Venus and Earth.
As Mars approached the larger bodies, atmosphere and oceans were pulled from its surface. (From: Remembering the End of the World)
Our ancestors interpreted this event as the birth of the hero, who grew a beard and wore his mother as a conical queen, and took a form of a peg or dagger.
Then, according to the myths, he rejoined the goddess, impregnated her and broke away. Venus took a serpentine aspect.
They danced in the sky, forming a yin-yang like sign.
And eventually the symbol of the Sacred Eye was born:
When Mars's orbit came too near to Earth, the red planet provoked a catastrophe, which is remembered in many culture as the Great Flood.
The Mars's orbit taking the planet away from Earth inspired another symbols: the Staircase to Heaven or the World's Mountain, and the Serpent.
The Mountain of Mars was seen as the Great Mooring Post of the sky, the Pillar of the Cosmos.
The stability of the Polar Configuration didn't last for long.
Eventually Saturn was cast beyond Jupiter from Earth's perspective.
In mythology, Jupiter overthrew his father Saturn, ruler of the Golden Age and of time, and became ruler of the Cosmos.
Venus transformed into a terrifying goddess with dishevelled hair, or Medusa, or a raging serpent or dragon that battled Mars, the hero.
That's probably why in some cultures comets (Venus) are considered bad omens.
When peace returned to the sky above the Earth, the solar system looked very different from the one of the Golden Age, when Saturn ruled our world.
I hope that this reconstruction of our ancient past has whetted your appetite for more, dear Seeker. Here's a list of where you can start your own research:

Save the day: my next post will go live on 23 May. I will discuss the consequences of the Electric Universe theory on healing.
In this post I'm going to explore the theory of the Electric Universe (don't worry, no equations involved!), because it is the base to understanding a relative new theory on world mythology which I will discuss next month.
The myths of creation and the symbolism still used today (crowns, evil eye, the ancient Gods, the pyramid, etc.) are so similar around the world that they may have a common origin whose meaning had been lost throughout the millennia.
Could it be that they all derive from a planetary configuration dominating Earth's sky until around 6,000 years ago? This is the thesis explored by writer David Talbott and physicist Wallace Thornhill in the documentaries Thunderbolts of the Gods and Symbols of an Alien Sky.
Back to the Electric Universe, to write my story Homecoming, in which the main character, Shr, is an inhabitant of the Sun, I had to research our star and frankly I didn't understand how the nuclear fusion worked. I mean, it didn't make sense to me. It turns out I'm not the only one and I was pleasantly surprised when the Electric Universe Theory explains how the Sun works in far more logical sense.
Talking logic, let's start from the beginning.
The Electric Universe theory is based on the idea that as 99.9% of the Universe is made up of plasma – electrically charged gas – and that the electromagnetic forces that are found everywhere may have more influence on our Universe than gravity.
Nearly everything in the Universe is formed of plasma, all stars, including our sun is made of plasma.
Gravity is the weakest of all forces.
As plasma makes up most of the universe, is everywhere and is so much stronger than gravity, could it be an Electric Universe?
As stated on the website http://www.electricuniversetheory.com:
The Electric Universe theory is interdisciplinary, integrating and supporting subject as diverse as the science (astronomy, geology, physics), with the soft sciences such as ancient history and comparative mythology.
Perhaps not surprisingly, the Electric Universe has also become the target of pseudo-skeptics, whose criticisms have consisted of ad hominems, misunderstanding, misrepresentation, and labeling as pseudoscience.
Key points of the Electric Universe Theory
Plasma physics and electrical engineering hold the key to explaining the origins of powerful magnetic fields throughout the cosmos, contrary to what we have been taught that electric currents produce magnetic fields.
According to NASA,
The filaments persist in NGC 1275 even though the turmoil of galactic collisions should destroy them. First, active galaxy NGC 1275 is the central, dominant member of the large and relatively nearby Perseus Cluster of Galaxies. Wild-looking at visible wavelengths, the active galaxy is also a prodigious source of x-rays and radio emission. NGC 1275 accretes matter as entire galaxies fall into it, ultimately feeding a supermassive black hole at the galaxy's core. This composite image, recreated from archival Hubble Space Telescope data, highlights the resulting galactic debris and filaments of glowing gas, some up to 20,000 light-years long. Observations indicate that the structures, pushed out from the galaxy's center by the black hole's activity, are held together by magnetic fields. Also known as Perseus A, NGC 1275 spans over 100,000 light years and lies about 230 million light years away.

Webb’s high resolution and sensitivity will allow astronomers to examine objects like this in greater detail than ever before. Credits: ESO/M. McCaughrean
The Electric Universe Theory can explain how it is possible that high-energy jets spanning many light-years across the cosmos are confined to narrow streams across cosmic distances, and what prevents the so-called streams of gas from dispersing in the “vacuum” of space. (The Thunderbolts Project,
Top 10 Reasons the Universe is Electric: #3 Cosmic Jets | Space News)
The Fermi Bubbles, giant gamma-ray structures which scientists have dubbed "incandescent bulbs screwed into the center of the galaxy," are both explicable and predictable in the Electric Universe. (

A pulsar is a highly magnetized rotating neutron star or white dwarf that emits a beam of electromagnetic radiation. This radiation can be observed only when the beam of emission is pointing toward Earth, and is responsible for the pulsed appearance of emission. A neutron star is the collapsed core of a large star which before collapse had a total of between 10 and 29 solar masses (supernova). Neutron stars are the smallest and densest stars.
The EU theory states that these stars are not mainly made of neutrons (as the established model affirms), and the enormous amount of energy released by a pulsar confirms the validity of the EU Theory (

Mainstream science sees lightning as part of a closed Earth's global electrical circuit. However, there is more and more evidence that the circuit is actually open, connecting planets and the Sun. This explains also phenomena like the Martian dust devils (Top 10 Reasons the Universe is Electric #6: Charged Planets (Inner Solar System) | Space News)
Before NASA sent its Juno spacecraft to explore Jupiter, astronomers were "totally wrong" about much of what they thought they knew about the planet, the mission's principal investigator, Scott Bolton, said during a lecture here at the 231st meeting of the American Astronomical Society on Tuesday (Jan. 9).
"Our ideas were totally wrong about the interior structure, about the atmosphere, [and] even about the magnetosphere," Bolton said. (Hanneke Weitering, www.space.com, 'Totally Wrong' on Jupiter: What Scientists Gleaned from NASA's Juno Mission, January 10, 2018)
This is not the first time that mainstream scientists are proven wrong by data received from space probes like Juno and Cassini (for example: the plumes of Encedalus, the fact that at the centre of both poles of Saturn there is a hot spot, that Io's hot spots are hotter than any lava on Earth, and so on) while these phenomena were predicted by The EU Theory.
(Top 10 Reasons the Universe is Electric #7: Charged Planets (Outer Solar System) | Space News)
Some surface features of various cosmic bodies are caused by electric discharges or cosmic mega-lighting bolts. These include various craters and valley/river systems like the Grand Canyon, the Mariner Valley on Mars, the Stickney Crator on Martian Moon Photos, and the Rayed Tycho crater on the Moon. (Top 10 Reasons the Universe is Electric #8: Electrical Planetary Scarring | Space News).
The Electric Sun theory (also Electric Star theory, and Electric Sun Model and Electric Sun Hypothesis) is the idea that the Sun (and stars) derives the main sources of its power electrically from its surroundings, rather than from within by nuclear fusion (the mainstream view). This also explains why the chromosphere, transition region, and corona are much hotter than the surface of the Sun.
More and more data from the Hubble Space Telescope show us planetary systems in which gas giants orbit their stars closer than smaller, rocky planets. This is surprising for those believing in the accretion model but explainable by the EU Theory, as you can see in the videos Solar System's History in Disarray | Space News and Wal Thornhill: Ultima Thule – Another Victory for the Electric Universe | Space News
I hope that this post has whetted your appetite for my next one, in which I will take you in an exciting journey to discover the origin of world mythology.
Save the day: my next post will go live on 18th April.
The short answer is: they are tools to surveil everything we do, like in the book “1984” by George Orwell, so that we lose our freedom and liberty once and for all, culling the world population (us) while doing so.
After analysing the UN’s Agenda 30 document in my blog post,
EARTH CHANGES-THE FUTURE (Part 2/2): “TRANSFORMING OUR WORLD: THE 2030 AGENDA FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT” IS NOT WHAT THE UN WANTS YOU TO BELIEVE,
I’m convinced this conclusion fits perfectly in the bigger picture of how the ruling class is trying to shape our future, hoping we’ll find out only when it’s too late.
Outrageous? Crazy? Too far-fetched?
You’ll be the judge. I only ask you, dear Seeker, to read this post and look at the evidence I present you.
I’ll start by borrowing the following description of the 5G technology from the website 5G Appeal.
What is 5G – an introduction
5G signifies ‘5th generation’ wireless technology. It is said to provide faster and higher transmission capacity. It includes the Internet of Things (IoT), driverless cars, and faster video streaming.
5G will massively increase the microwave and millimeter wave radiation in our environment. It will also use new frequencies that are not evaluated by experts independent from industry as to their safety.
5G will include the higher millimeter wave frequencies, previously used for crowd control for instance. The millimeter waves do not travel easily through buildings so 5G will require millions of new “small cell” antennas.
The wireless telecom industry intend to outfit nearly all lamp post or utility post around the countries with these wireless small cell antennas beaming hazardous radiation next to, or into our homes, schools, working places and everywhere, 24/7.
5G radiation will be sent from advanced antennas, so called phased arrays, that transmit the microwaves and/or millimeter waves in narrow bands, a technology originally developed for military purposes. This will massively increase the exposure to radiation in those beams, that will be nearly everywhere. …
No evaluation of health effects nor of effects on the wildlife and the environment has been undertaken. There is no research showing safety neither from 5G alone, nor from the combined exposure to 5G + already existing radiation from GSM, 3G, WiFi, 4G etc.
What does this mean?
I would like you to ponder also on the following two questions:
One last thing on the 5G technology:
Even UN staff members are concerned about it. Claire Edwards, who worked for the United Nations as Editor and Trainer in Intercultural Writing from 1999 to 2017, describes her experience in the article
UN Staff Member: 5G Is War on Humanity, Take Back your Power, January 2019,
I did my best to alert the UN staff union, administration and medical service to the danger to the health of UN staff of EMR from these access points, but was ignored. That’s why, in May 2018, I took the issue to the UN Secretary-General, António Guterres [ transcript]. He is a physicist and electrical engineer and lectured on telecommunications signals early in his career, yet asserted that he knew nothing about this. He undertook to ask the World Health Organization to look into it, but seven months later those public access points remain in place. I received no replies to my many follow-up emails.
Also called “autonomous cars”, driverless cars are cars that can move without a driver. I used to love this idea, because sometimes it was physically painful for me to drive.
However, my initial enthusiasm has been replaced by concern, for two main reasons:
Autonomous cars will need two things to operate safely: ultra-fast communication between nearby cars, things and the cloud, and near real-time data about their surroundings. Both DSRC and 4G LTE are fast.Both provide the connections to other vehicles and nearby things. But neither technology was designed for transmitting big data files really quickly. ….
But big data files are reason enough to align autonomous driving to 5G.
“Smart” Meters and the Internet of Things
When government from around the world push the same agenda all of a sudden, I get even more suspicious. That’s the case with fracking, 5G, vaccinations and “smart” meters.
Also, can you imagine how much your data can be worth to whoever steals it or sells it? Especially if your “smart” meter is connected to the 5G grid (which is where it is all going) and to all of your appliances (Internet of Things). They would know everything about you, I mean EVERYTHING.
In the UK, the 5G rollout is starting later this year targeting at first London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast, Birmingham and Manchester.
Later on, the second phase will include Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool, Leeds, Hull, Sheffield, Nottingham, Leicester, Coventry and Bristol.

Luckily, people all over the world are taking action to prevent this catastrophic scenario to become reality, but there's a lot to do to increase the awareness on this topic in the world.

Save the date: my next post on the Electric Universe will go live on 21 March.
I planned our winter holiday in July last year. My daughter Sofia, my boyfriend John and I would be spending Christmas at my parents’ house in Italy. “Booked!” I screamed once I read the notification that my payment for the flight tickets had gone through.
In September, we started the countdown.
In November, I spent a week in Italy to deal with errands that would be difficult to do over Christmas, like seeing my accountant, my consultant at the bank and so on. I had the chance to spend time alone with my parents and catch up with a few friends. After over a year abroad, the warm embrace of my folks overwhelmed my heart. Plus I’d be back in only a month’s time, just before Christmas. Maybe I could even celebrate my 50th birthday there.
On 20th December, I checked my messages and emails just before the taxi driver arrived at 6 am. Nothing from EasyJet, but a piece of news caught my eye. Gatwick airport had been closed the night before and flights suspended because of drones sighted flying over the airport. My legs trembled. I inhaled deeply, and shook off that awful sensation. The article referred to the night before, surely the situation now was under control.
At 8.45 am, we were at Gatwick airport, queuing up to drop off our bags. We were excited at the thought of what we’d do that afternoon and the following days in Italy, what we’d eat, who we’d see, but above all we were excited about spending Christmas with granny, grandad, Sofia’s cousins and the rest of our family, for the first time after 6 years.
However, it was not meant to be. The check-in procedures stopped when it was almost our turn: the airport had just been closed, and all flights due to depart before 2 pm (ours included) had been cancelled.
In the hope to find another flight from another airport, and that the airline would arrange the transport, we patiently waited for four hours to talk to an EasyJet customer service representative.
“We have no flights available to Italy until the 26th December. I’m very sorry. You may try with another airline. We’ll refund you the fare.”
In a state of trance, we checked flights online with British Airways from Gatwick for later in the afternoon or for the following day. Every time we wanted to book them, the flights disappeared. Therefore, we took the shuttle to the South Terminal to go and book the tickets in person, if that was at all possible. During the short ride, a few passengers near me shouted, “Look at the drone! Over there!” but I couldn’t see it. One thing was obvious though: the airport would stay shut in the afternoon too. It was already 1.30 pm. The chances to fly out from Gatwick that day were non-existent.
At the South Terminal, there were passengers everywhere, making it difficult to move around with our suitcases. We gave up the idea of reaching British Airways and went to Costa’s for a bite to eat instead. The tears that had been welling in the sockets of my eyes flooded my face. I felt I had failed my parents and my daughter, and John. Our 10-days holiday would be reduced to three days if I didn’t find another way to get to Venice before Christmas. Three days! Was it worth it? I felt like giving up, cancel the return journey and go home.
Nevertheless, three days were better than nothing, and the more we waited the less chances we had to leave even on the 26th. Sniffling, I went online and accepted the flight offered to us, at 8.30 pm on 26th December.
The following days we did our best to enjoy the Christmas holidays and at last, we flew out to Venice.
In those three days, we fitted in everything we could, however, a visit to Vicenza had to be cut short because of the unseasonable bitter cold and the heavy fog, it was far too cold to go to Venice so Verona had no competition; Padua was magical; and my improvised birthday party was a success.
After a month, the question, “Who forced Gatwick to suspend all flights for 36 hours?” is still unanswered. Actually, it seems that, “Some of the drone sightings which kept Gatwick Airport on lockdown for 36 hours may have been reports of Sussex Police's own aircraft, the force's highest-ranking officer admitted yesterday. “ (The Telegraph, 29 December 2018)
Yes, you read it correctly. Police’s equipment. A few days ago, the same happened at Heathrow but just for an hour on 8th January.
Anyway, who can profit from this drone hysteria?
I think there are two possibilities:
What do you think about it, dear Seeker? Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.
Save the date: my next blog post will go live on 21st February.
For the second year in a row, blogger and writer Solveig Werner invited me to contribute to her popular Advent Calendar and I gladly accepted again.
Last year, my piece was a reflection on what Christmas meant to me (The Magic and Curse of Christmas).
This year, after so many heavy blog posts, I wrote the lighthearted shorty story A Child at Heart.
Here's an excerpt:
Anna’s necklace is simple, just the thin gold chain her grandparents gave her on her christening, and the long hankered for heart-shaped moldavite pendant her cousin Laura donated her on her birthday, almost a year ago.
Anna couldn’t believe her eyes when she opened the small cream box. Moldavite, one of the most powerful crystal on Earth, the one that brings about accelerated spiritual transformation and therefore changes in its owner’s life faster than any other crystal, was finally hers.
In her late forties, divorced, with two teenage children and a stable job, she longed for an improvement in her dire financial situation and for a partner with whom to share the rest of her lonely life. Slender, tall, fair-skinned, sporting a maze of curly strawberry hair, she was still pretty and made men turn their heads. The wrong men. Those who wanted one-night stands and were too scared of romance. At last, she was offered a chance to fast-forward her life.
She sat at the oak kitchen table, alone. Since her children were always out on Saturday night and she had nowhere to go, she had got into the habit of writing in her journal for hours after dinner, summing up her thoughts on the events of the week.
This Saturday night, though, Anna can’t bring herself to do it. Instead, she holds the thin moldavite in her hands.
“So, what have you brought me so far dearie?
A blazing row with my now former bestie, hence no more friends who are single with whom to go out. Well, at least I know how envious of me she was, so envious to criticise every aspect of my life. Every time I was down, she would kick me even lower. Maybe I should thank you for this fight dearie. And the strange thing is that I don’t miss her much.
No more men in my life. OK, those I had before were no good, but now it’s the desert!
No financial improvement. I thought my job interview with Delizie went well last week but no, no joy there either,” she sighs. “I blew another golden opportunity. Or did I? An extra hour to commute, long hours and less time for my children for sure. Maybe it’s better this way. Maybe it was your way to protect me from lower vibrations. ” Or maybe I’m just kidding myself and I did blow a golden opportunity to earn more money.
She squeezes the green crystal, then kisses it softly and wears the necklace again. Dreaming is for free, after all.
"Time for my journal," she whispers to herself.
"22nd December ‘18
Wait, what have I written? Anna shakes her head in disbelief. Well, why not? It’ll be fun to write a letter to Santa after 30 years.
Anna smirks, remembering the simple things she would ask as a child: a Cicciobello doll, a board game, a special dress … Life was easy then, with Mum and Granny taking care of everything. She sighs, grabs the fountain pen with red ink that she uses on special occasions and carries on writing. ..."

Save the date: my next post will go live on 17th January 2019.
I’ve been curious about the End Times predictions for a long time, and I was looking forward to researching this subject. I’d read a book, “Beyond 2012” by Geoff Stray before 2012 and recently I’ve skimmed through it for ideas for this post. I’ve watched many a YouTube video too.
Still, I cannot bring myself to discuss this subject. My naïve idea was to boil down the prophecies I’d found more fascinating to their core and to compare their take on what’s in store for humanity. However, I’ve encountered the following problems:
I could have written something anyway, but it would have been inaccurate if not misleading, so I’d rather prefer to leave it and tell you what has been helping me find my bearings in this time of transition instead: astrology.
By astrology I don't mean the daily horoscope, I mean the interpretation of astronomy in a spiritual sense. My favorite astrologer is David Palmer, aka The Leo King. So far, he’s the only astrologer I know who goes deep into the meaning of the charts and explains it in a clear, inspiring and entertaining way.
In his horoscopes, he discusses at least three of the many layers of astrology: collective consciousness, history, and the personal layer (To find out more please watch this video: Astrology: How/Why I Became An Astrologer. Spiritual/Esoteric Astrology Become an Astrologer).
All of the predictions I’ve heard have been on point, and have greatly contributed to my understanding of the spiritual challenges our universe, humanity and I have been going through and what is the bigger picture.
Also, in the video Connecting the Solar Magnetic Pole Shift, Solar Flares, W/ Astrology and Spirituality, he discusses what astrology does for the human story, free will and what’s happening at the galactic level.
Thus, after six months of investigating the Earth changes and wondering whether I should relocate and where, I’ve come to the conclusion that the best course of action is to carry on growing my food at the allotment, knitting if I’ve got a moment, store some extra food supplies just in case, and trust in God’s guidance, my internal GPS that has never failed me and always given me what I need.
At the end of the day, dear Seeker, according to Quantum Physics and ancient wisdom, we are co-creators of our own reality, and together with millions of Lightworkers around the world, I’ve devoted my life to create a bright future for humanity. Now it’s not the time to give in to fear, right? It's time to own our destinies and be the stars we are.
