New Age Channelings:
Who or What is Speaking?

This was expanded and made into a book, Return of the Dark-Light Mother.

Lament for my young son 1985 by Monica Sjoo
"Leif, my young son, gone to the Otherworld Aug. 1985.
Why, oh why?"

I wrote "New Age and Armageddon: the Goddess or the Gurus?" after the death of my oldest son from virulent cancer in 1987. He had become involved with Rebirthers, New Age therapists, with disastrous results. In the book I discuss, among other things, New Agers' reactionary and patriarchal worldview, their denial of life's natural cycles, their envy of birthing mothers (they believe in rebirth without the mother), and their concepts of poverty-and-prosperity-consciousness, which goes along with the "you create your own reality" thinking. They inevitably end up guilt-tripping the poor, oppressed and ill. This explains the self-satisfied and intolerable smugness of affluent white New Agers, who congratulate themselves on their good Karma and good fortune, claiming that "Money is my friend" (see note 1) and that physical immortality should be their birthright.

While I was writing and gathering material for the book I became increasingly alarmed and frightened by the right wing, racist, anti-feminist assumptions in much New Age thinking. What emerged was a hidden agenda behind the facade of Light, love and healing, an agenda that supports US corporate free market capitalism, patriarchal science and other horrors. At that time, however, I had not looked closely at New Age channelings. I have since done so and have found them frightening.

I am not an academic and will not apologise for perhaps at times sounding crazily unacceptable to the academic mind. In this article I am trying to follow the distorted, patriarchal, reactionary reasoning of New Agers/channelers, which leads me into having to discuss spirit communications, which I believe are possible, as well as Aryan supremacy theories, so prevalent in the West until recently. These theories have re-emerged in the New Age movement and elsewhere. As the mother of two sons who now live on in the Spirit-world, one of whom was/is of mixed race, his father African-American, I'm not speaking as an outsider, but as someone who experiences the Otherworld as forever present. I believe that my son and his distant Africans ancestors work through me now as I confront white supremacist, racist & misogynist New Age thinking.

New Age channeling of discarnate entities originated in and has been fashionable amongst the affluent whites on the west coast of USA since the early 80's. Many channelers have made fame & fortune for themselves. For example, Mrs. J. Z. Knight, who channels the supposedly 30.000 year old entity Ramtha from her securely guarded and armed " fortress" in the small town of Yelm in Washington State. It turns out that this supposedly ancient wise entity Ramtha, "The Enlightened One," admired "King Reagan" and supported the dismantling of the US welfare system. These just happen to be Mrs. Knight's own views, as expressed in her autobiography.

While struggling to save my oldest son from cancer, and in despair over my youngest son's death at the age of 15, I got involved in Spiritualism. After a while I couldn't help but notice that the majority of the mediums were women, but women who hid behind male personae and voices, in a world where not long ago mediums /Wise women/Witches were burnt at the stake. Male spirit guides, Secret Masters, and now more recently ETs (Extra Terrestrials), adepts who mostly express right-wing patriarchal views supposedly speak through women mediums. These women seem once again to be acting as passive vessels for masterful male entities.

Are we to believe that even the spirit realms have been imperialised by the patriarchs? Why is it that one doesn't hear the messages and voices of the dark Neolithic women who created ancient cultures and had evolved mind and intelligence, as they had already studied the lunar cycles in the Palaeolithic? Nor do we hear the voices of the Wise women of Europe or the shamans (women and men) of indigenous peoples everywhere who were put to death for believing that Earth and all life is sacred and is born of and returns to the Dark/Light Mother. The emphasis on male channeled entities continues unabated in the New Age movement and the messages are mostly reactionary.

Many would dismiss New Age channelings as harmless if fanciful nonsense. That is a view I do not share. I want to make it clear, though, that I do believe in the possibility of spirit communications between the worlds or realms or dimensions. My two sons live on in the spirit-world, of that I am convinced, and they communicate with me in my dreams. All ancient, as well as present day indigenous peoples have gained the powers of prophecy and healing from the Ancestors in shamanic states. I have experienced such states at the ancient sacred sites of the Goddess in the land itself and such visions have inspired my art.

But the entities - whether Secret Masters, Extraterrestrials or spirit guides - that apparently speak through New Age channelers seem to be of another order entirely than the spirits of Earth and ancient realities. These channeled entities, so beloved of the New Age movement, give messages that are patriarchal and life-denying, they seem hostile to earth-based biological life and to the Earth Mother that gives us our life and being.

It is very convenient to be able to say, " It was my Spirit guide who said....." , thereby renouncing any responsibility for the message. As someone said, channeling is a monologue that no-one takes responsibility for. People seem to be in awe of and never question such entities.

I have not found any discussion or questioning of what the New Age channelings are about, or who the entities might be, and I have mostly found myself a lone voice when giving workshops and talks at camps and gatherings, challenging New Age Patriarchy and its channelers. It seems that people are either taken in by it all and lose their critical faculties OR they dismiss it entirely as irrelevant. I am trying to do neither.

The Racist Legacy of Alice Bailey

The New Age movement has inherited many of its reactionary notions from the Theosophists. The Theosophical movement, founded by the Russian aristocrat Helena Blavatsky in the USA in 1875, was THE New Age movement of its time and was very influential. Alice Bailey and Rudolf Steiner, both of whose thinking has reached deep into the New Age psyche, started out as Theosophists.

Madame Blavatsky first channeled the so-called Hierarchy of Masters, occult adepts, Mahatmas or the White Brotherhood, who are said to be immortal, and to materialise and dematerialise anywhere at will. More recently New Age channeler Phyllis Schlemmer, for instance, has stated that her "Council of 9" are the same Secret Masters that Blavatsky and Alice Bailey channeled. These Masters are said to rule the world by occult means.

Alice Bailey's books (channeled to her through "Master DK") and the many organisations that she spawned (such as the Lucis Trust, the New Group of World Servers and the Goodwill Foundation), have had a reactionary and racist influence on the whole New Age movement. Her work has been avidly studied at Findhom, the 'Light Centre' and New Age Mecca, in Scotland. She adopted from Madame Blavatsky the thoroughly racist concept of Root Races, condemns indigenous dark peoples to extinction, to make way for the Aryan/white Caucasian peoples whose time this is to be. Alice Bailey was right-wing, light obsessed and demonised darkness. When the atomic bombs were exploded over Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, her "Master DK" welcomed this as a great spiritual event because it would "liberate" light from within the dark womb of the atom or matter; justifying the destruction of the Japanese people, who, they said, were due to leave their physical form and belonged to an earlier Root Race anyway! It should come as no surprise to find that the Nazis studied Blavatsky's writings. And like Blavatsky, Alice Bailey was also anti-semitic. (see note 2)

Racist thinking like this thrives within the New Age movement David Spangler, the American guru at Findhorn in the early 70's, was an admirer of Alice Bailey's teachings, and wrote of how we are to overcome the ancient shamanic (lunar/female/Goddess) mind which hears the voices of Nature. According to him it is with the "Aryan mind" that human mental powers came into their own and brought the Masters into being. This "Aryan mind" is the alienated dualistic onlooker consciousness of Western patriarchy which has set about dominating and destroying the Earth, turning Her from a biosphere into a technosphere.

Alice Bailey's Master DK also claims that the "Secret Masters" have all along been influencing men's (and I mean men's) minds, implanting ideas and sudden inspirations that have led to inventions and scientific "break­throughs" such as the splitting of the atom, and taking an instrumental role in the creation of patriarchies, industrialism, imperialism and the birth of male science.

When I consider the way that US controlled multinational corporations, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and so on wage war against the Earth, holding Third World and Eastern bloc countries to ransom, wrecking entire economies as well as the livelihoods of peasants and women everywhere, destroying whole ecosystems all around the world in the name of freemarket capitalism and the New World Order, this doesn't seem totally far-fetched. I can't help wondering what the members of Alice Bailey's organisations might be up to. Are they in fact heading capitalist corporations, wielding financial and political power?

Calling in the Light

Christianity has demonised and desacralised Earth, seeing it as dark and female. The "God" of the Christians (Moslems, Hebrews, etc.) on the other hand, is eternal light and male by definition. I call him the absentee landlord as he clearly is not seen as indwelling in "his creation". This is in contrast to the ancient Mother Goddess who was/is both dark and light, both of this world and of the Otherworld, the Mother of the living as well as Mother of the spirits.

Ramala, an entity channeled from Glastonbury, advocates the removal of darkness from the world and is oblivious to the fact that life evolved in a world of both light and darkness, and that we grow in the dark womb, and that nothing would live, heal, or grow without darkness, nor would we dream or communicate with the spirits. In contrast, African shaman Malidoma Patrice Somé says in "Of Water and the Spirit" that for his people, the Dagara, who are matrilinear, darkness is sacred and it is forbidden to illuminate it since that scares the spirits away. The night is the day of the spirits, and of the Ancestors who come to speak with us and share their wisdom. I understand that the Neolithic people of Europe were most likely related to the present-day shamanic arctic peoples, they were not white and Indo-European. They saw the Dark Goddess as the lifegiving Earth while the White Goddess was the Mother of the Spirits.

Ramala says that since all matter is mortal, it is in order, in our quest for consciousness, to sacrifice aspects of Nature! This at a time when Earth has been abused & raped beyond Her endurance. It also assumes that Nature is not conscious. This reminds me of a spokesman for president Chirac who said to the Guardian newspaper (see note 3) that the continuing nuclear tests in the Pacific, under the Mururoa atoll and against world opinion, were about "the freedom of man rather than the contemplation of the innocence of nature." Many New Agers would agree with this and most New Agers live in cities where electrification is god and the maternal darkness is truly banished, and nuclear power, the Matricide which rips apart the womb of matter to create artificial light, is seen as a necessity.

Alice Bailey's "The Great Invocation" has been promoted worldwide, becoming a sort of New Age hymn. It has been translated into 75 or so languages, and is used as a sort of hypnotic mantra, repetitively invoking Light, the Will of God, and the Plan on Earth. New Agers constantly call in "the Light" , in meditations and in gatherings, but the light they are invoking is not of this world, and I fear they are preparing for a mass death while speaking of Earth healing and Earth transformations.

I experienced the white light of the Otherworld as I flew with my brain-dead son on great white wings in a kind of 'near-death' experience.

New Agers' channeled entities, Masters and Extra-terrestrials, seem to be envious of, and hostile to Mother-born life on this Earth. What is called " Rebirth into light" seems to be about the destruction of the lifegiving Dark Mother, who all patriarchs, it seems, hate and fear.

Flight from the Body

In many channeled books - from "Starseed Transmissions: an Extraterrestrial Report" written by Ken Carey in 1982 during eleven days when he claimed to be overshadowed by the Archangel Raphael, (who sounds more like an Alien hostile to life on Earth), to the recently published "The Only Planet of Choice" channeled by the medium Phyllis Schlemmer over a period of more than 20 years from "The 9", a sort of Intergalactic council or cosmic board of directors from a "zone of cold and super­conductivity".

There is a repeated theme that Earth is a lower and fallen realm, and above all that She has no autonomous creative powers to create life. Instead we are "seeded" from other planets, and/or we are a failed genetic experiment carried out by "space brothers". There is definitely something inherently wrong in being biologically human, living in a physical body.

In many channeled books it is said that super-computers exist in space and one can be excused for thinking that "God" is the ultimate linear, left-brain, alienated computer-mind. This is of course our inheritance from Christianity and other patriarchal monotheistic religions that set out to desacralise and demonize the Earth, which they say is full of illusionary form and female darkness. The Devil is the creation of those who deny the Goddess. Christianity seeks to separate spirit from matter, mind from body, and declare matter and body female, lower, impure.

It is said that Male spirit seeks to free itself from female matter. This is also what the digital/Net/Virtual Reality computerised revolution is about, as the computer/machine is envied for its "purity"; pure linear mind "fathered" by scientists, originally developed to facilitate the making of the Hydrogen bomb in the 40's. A flight from the "messy"-bleeding-excreting body born of woman. Those who follow this line of thought clearly hate the dark Mother Earth so much that they welcome Her destruction or see Her as disposable.

Virtually all channeled books in recent years accept that our future will be computerised and genetically engineered. Most of the books are written by white Americans who are oblivious to what the USA is doing in the world at large, where US multi­nationals, who are a law unto themselves and aspire to create a US dominated World Order, rip off the Third World and indigenous peoples, stealing their land, seed and even genetic material. In return they have introduced the misnamed "Green Revolution" and sterile genetically engineered "improved" seed that can only be maintained at great cost and dependence on foreign petrochemical companies, the purchase of tractors, etc.

Vandana Shiva, the Indian scientist and ecofeminist, writes in "Staying Alive: Women, Ecology and Development" that indigenous women peasants of India were always the guardians and care-takers of the soil, the seed, the trees, the waters, and perceive Nature and the Earth as a great sacred living Mother/Shakti. To claim that we are seeded or genetically engineered in an imperialist way from other planets strangely reflects today's realities.

Genetic scientists plan to manipulate genes and our DNA, to produce hybrid animals and plants. They also imperialise women's bodies. Women scientists have warned again and again of how male scientists desire to become "male mothers", to clone themselves, that they speak of women as "foetal environments" and ovarian "egg farms". Surrogate motherhood has been created and birth itself becomes increasingly high-tech and alienated, especially in the USA, as women are wired up and "managed" by male obstetricians. In the ancient world, however, birth was considered a sacrament, an experience that opens one up to shamanic realms and states, and women gave birth within the sacred precincts of the Great Mother, presided over by priestesses who were also midwives and healers.

It has struck me when reading about the innumerable UFO abduction experiences, as retold by so many Americans - being taken into the computerised environment of a space-ship, being operated on and prodded/examined by terrifying masked alien beings in a blinding light - that this is strikingly similar to the actual experience of a hospital birth. The terrified new­born child dragged out of its bleeding mother - (in the USA it is now so common with perfectly unnecessary caesareans and also hysterectomies for that matter) held up and slapped by alien masked beings in a near-blinding light which hurts the child's sensitive eyes (see note 4). I wonder whether this experience is replayed and experienced as an alien abduction at times of heightened psychic emotion and/or stress? Just a thought.

It has also been suggested that the so-called aliens or ETs might be our own future (genetically modified?) selves returning on time-travel visitations. For what purpose I don't know. Barbara Hand Clow in "The Pleiadian Agenda" and Barbara Marciniak in "Earth: Pleiadian Keys to the Living Library" certainly claim that the Pleiadian beings, which they channel in a sort of stream of consciousness, are our past as well as future selves. For a change their books are not antifeminist; they even speak of the Goddess and of sexuality and women's blood as sacred. (see note 5)

The Destruction of the Earth

The New Age movement, heavily influenced by Alice Bailey's ideas, appears to see Earth as redundant, an old dark indigenous Mother to transcend. They speak of Her as low-fallen-dense-material. Since they desire to escape Earth they welcome in ETs, Aliens, Space "Brothers" and they imagine that life and humans were "seeded" here or genetically engineered from space and other planets. They cannot even imagine that life originated here, that we were born of the Earth Mother, who is a great spirit, a planetary being in space, who gives us consciousness and all that we are.

When New Agers speak of coming Earth-transformations they actually seem to mean the death of Nature, of Earth Herself. On the bidding of "the Lord" above She is to sacrifice Herself, becoming Light-filled and ascending into the Fifth dimension of bodylessness and eternal light. To my knowledge this is a state reached only after death.

For example Diana Luppi, the woman channeler for the "Intergalactic Council" suggests that Earth Herself has asked for the "coming evolutionary jump" and has been preparing a long time for the arrival of the ETs who are coming to reclaim the planet in the name of "the Light" (male "God") who is "the source of all life and creation". According to her we are to rejoin the "cosmic family" away from Earth's "dysfunctional system" - in American therapy-speak.

In the meantime, she writes, the Council's invisible fifth-dimensional starships are encircling the Earth, and wait for the time when those of us, the starpeople who have preprogrammed DNA, "detonate" at a preset time. This is so that this elite, planted here, will be able to include more light than the mere human type. We are cautioned that it'll all be traumatic as Earth changes. The thing to remember is that "you are an inter-dimensional Master and an expert at transforming collapsible realities". She believes that since everything is predestined it would only prolong the agony to do anything to stop the corporate destruction and rape and pollution of Earth and its dark peoples. It would also be "negative" to dwell on such things. In the current environmental crisis attitudes like these are particularly alarming. It seems that these New Agers are trying to brainwash people into passivity and non-action just when action is needed the most. In whose interests are they working?


John Keel, who was an investigator into the paranormal in the 70s, speaks of Ultraterrestrials (UTs), and thinks that they are not from other planets but are beings who occupied Earth long before us but who are now invisible to us (see note 6). Keel thinks that the UTs are Earth's original inhabitants, and have appeared in many guises over the many millennia. They appear, or are able to materialise, where there are magnetic anomalies and faultlines in the Earth's crust - such at the ancient sacred sites of the Goddess -that act as sort of gateways or windows into other realities. These are the sites where Shamankas and Shamans in all ages undertook spirit-flights into the world of the spirits and the Ancestors seeking powers of healing and prophecy. Shamanism is thought have been originally an ancient ecstatic women's tradition based on our lunar/menstrual mysteries

In legend the UTs have come down to us as the Elementals, Nature spirits, the Little People, Faeries or Shining Ones, Castaneda's Allies, as ghosts and the spirits of the dead, as Earth Lights and White Ladies, and now most recently, as Extraterrestrials and Immortal Masters. They appeared in the messages of spiritualist mediums at the end of the last century and now in New Age channelings. The Entities are said to possess great magical powers and can take any form they wish or that is projected on them. They might also be responsible for the present day crop circles and UFO flaps.

Keel thinks that magic beliefs were always fundamentally about how to work with and transform electromagnetic energies and atomic structures, and that occultists might have been forcing electrical energy to assume visible, physical form when calling up spirits. I myself believe that ancient peoples walked easily between the realms and that there was a communication at all times between us and Earth's spirits in the way there is between a mother and her children. The Elementals or UTs were never really hostile to us until recently, even though they would play tricks on us and occasionally a shaman or initiate would get caught in their realm. Maladoma has strange things to say about this as does Castaneda. In the highlands of Scotland Faery women were the givers of wisdom to mortal women, but with Christianity women were accused of "Witchcraft" if they communicated with the Faeries and the Faery women were described as baby-snatchers and tricksters.

Maladoma also writes that Earth Herself has many vortex points through which one can reach almost anywhere, to any realms of the spirit in initiations. But our whole training in the West has been to silence our right brain - the Isis or Moon mind - through which we can hear the voices of Nature and the spirits. We are now so cut off that as a result we have put ourselves in mortal danger because most of us no longer hear the voice of Earth as She warns us. Perhaps this is why these Entities are now coming at us as some kind of repressed monsters of the patriarchal Id.

It is also possible that Entities from an entirely different order of reality, and who are truly hostile to us, have been able to enter into our Earth sphere as a result of atmospheric nuclear tests and the bombs that were detonated over Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945. A blast of energy was set off into space that might have been detected by beings from other worlds who then arrived here to help or warn us, or to abuse us.

Psychics had warned President Truman in 1945 not to detonate the atomic bomb because they thought that it might do damage to Earth's Etheric shield (the electromagnetic ionosphere - Gaia's magnetic mantle) allowing hostile entities to enter, not from other planets but from other realities. It was only two years later in June 1947, that the pilot Kenneth Arnold set off the original UFO scare with his sightings of luminous flying objects.

Atomic explosions disrupt the energy channels and work on levels far beyond the merely physical and create disharmony that reverberates throughout this universe and beyond. Does it even affect the world of the dead and the Ancestors, endangering our very rebirth?

I recently read an article about HAARP, which is the High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Programme that is being carried out in Alaska (see note 7). At first I thought that the article was written by some paranoid person but then I saw a programme on TV where the physicist who has developed HAARP quite matter of factly spoke of weather manipulation and of altering and tampering with Earth's very ionosphere, the huge plasma layer that is an electrically-charged sphere that surrounds Earth's upper atmosphere. It is in other words Earth's protective shield. The patent of the HAARP transmitter, or "Sky buster", or ionospheric heater, belonged originally to one of the biggest oil companies but is now in the hands of CIA and US military and defense departments, who by any definition are terrorists as they threaten all our lives. They aim to zap the upper atmosphere with a focused electromagnetic beam, thus lifting and heating areas of the ionosphere. Electromagnetic waves will then bounce back to Earth penetrating everything, living and dead. This Star Wars technology is potentially the ultimate lethal threat to Earth-life. While the US military see it as a way of penetrating oceans to locate enemy submarines, to knock out enemy electronic communication in time of war and trace oil, minerals, uranium underground, the frequency range will also disrupt human mental functionings. In fact this is planned as is environmental warfare, using polar ice melting, ozone depletion, earthquake engineering, weather control, ocean wave control etc.

What is going on? We already have electromagnetic critical mass in the environment. Could they in fact short-circuit the Earth? Nostradamus prophesied that a King of Terror will come from the skies in the seventh month of 1999, and Hitler, who was 1 mediumistic, seems to have had communications with this terrifying (radioactive?) being. Extraterrestrials are now appearing in channelings who claim that we are their creatures, that we were seeded or engineered by them, and that therefore they are entitled to come here and do what they like to us.

John Keel commented in 19716) that one of the most popular theories in cultist circles was that we were seeded on Earth from some interplanetary group which has observed and guided our progress ever since. This is what Erich von Daniken had popularised in the 60s in his books "Chariots of the Gods and Return to the Stars". Keel comments that in that case they have been doing a lousy job of it in the last centuries, and I would say during the whole of the 5000 years, or so destructive patriarchal era. If they have guided us all this time " then one can only draw the conclusion that the oppression of women, the destruction of the Earth and the death of Nature, as well as racism and imperialism all happened with their blessing. Reading Alice Bailey channeling her Master DK in the 30s and 40s one certainly gets that impression.

New Age Tampering with Earth's Energies

In a world where frontiers are closing everywhere in the Western world against dark peoples fleeing from famines, torture and wars -most of this as a result of the globalisation of poverty imposed and sanctioned by this same Western world - white New Agers jetset freely, speaking of themselves as global citizens, the world their oyster.

New Agers travel the world to sacred places where they attempt to manipulate Earth's sacred energies, planting crystals at standing stones and in similar places. Their plan is to facilitate the entry into this realm of extraterrestrials by changing the energy patterns of the Earth, and this, not Earth healing, was also the purpose of the so-called "Harmonic Convergence" in August 1987.

I was recently at a New Age festival in Cornwall and heard one such New Age jetsetter, the Australian channeler Sandy Stevenson speak of her journeys around the world (see note 8). She also boasted that she spent most of her time already in the fifth dimension and is personally tapped into the Masters!

Sandy announces in the final section of her book "The Awakener" that Earth is now functioning on the New Higher Vibrational Leyline system. At midnight on 25th November 1996 the Earth "slipped free" of the "denser" energy leyline system that Earth has used since the days of Atlantis. She told us how on that night she had been on the Cornish coast carrying an "Atlantean laser crystal" and had cut the last of the four corner cords that held the old leyline. Earth was now getting ready for the final stages of her "ascension", to be completed by 2012. It seems the so-called "light force" have been focusing light into sacred sites and leyline points throughout the world, creating a grid/leyline system to replace the old one. This is apparently part of "The Divine Plan for Earth".

As a lover of the Earth and her ancient sacred sites, I felt very close to evil when I heard her speaking and I could see clearly how New Agers using occult powers, taught by the likes of Alice Bailey, are attempting to tamper with Goddess Earth and Her ancient sacred powers. Things will get even crazier as the Millenium approaches and even more so with 2012, the end of the Mayan calendar and according to some New Agers the end of time.

I too would like to see the transformation of the Earth - but in ways totally other than what New Agers are anticipating. My dream would be for oppressed peoples to rise up, Earth's women to throw off our chains, and patriarchy finally come to an end.

If the patriarchal gods are spacemen, as some claim, then they must come from a space of envy and spite towards Mother Earth. That they claim to act out of "higher values", morality and spirituality is incredible. They fraudulently claim that our destruction is a step upwards towards the immortality of the individual soul and that Earth's destruction is Her rebirth into a higher and illumined form. These are lies that the New Age movement has adopted and must be thoroughly questioned if we want to survive on, and with, our beautiful and sacred Mother Earth.

Blessed Be

1. There is an actual book by that name by Rebirther Phil Laut (Trinity Publications, USA, 1978). "Rebirthing in the New Age" by Leonard Orr and Sondra Ray (Celestial Arts, CA, 1977) tells the story of that fraudulent movement by two of its founders.

2. I have a pamphlet put together from Alice Bailey's writings called "The total challenge of humanity on earth: the Jewish problem. A study for World Servers" and produced in 1946 by the Institute for Planetary Synthesis. Her 'solution' to "The Jewish problem" is for Jewish people to assimilate into the dominant culture wherever they live. In other words, when there is no longer a Jewish culture there is no "Jewish problem"!

3. From the Guardian newspaper at the time of the nuclear tests under Mururoa atoll in the Pacific, Winter 1995/96. John Keel wrote in 1971 that scientists were planting atomic bombs in known earthquake faults on the floor of the Pacific just to see what happens! See "New Age and Armageddon" for a discussion of how the Pacific peoples and their islands have been used and abused by both France and the USA.

4. See Joseph Chilton Pearce "Evolution's End" (Harper SF, USA, 1993).

5. Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake partly because her Voices were those of female saints. [And because she wore male attire, considered heresy at the time, but be that as it may.] There is a book of women mediums channeling female entities called "Dreaming the Past, Dreaming the Future: a Herstory of the Earth" edited by feminist witch Diane Stein (The Crossing Press, CA, 1991). Even in this book there is an overemphasis on light and on leaving Earth to travel to space and other planets. The Goddess is all light and Her dark self still excluded or feared.

6. John Keel Our Haunted Planet (Neville Spearman, 1971), Operation Trojan Horse (1975) and Strange Creatures From Time and Space. John Michell has also written widely on "Incredible Phenomena".. Also read Paul Devereaux's Earth Lights Revelation (Blandford Press, Dorset, 1989).

7. "HAARP: High Frequency Vandalism in the Sky" (Nexus:New Times, Vol.3, no. 1, Decl995-Janl996).

8. Sandy Stevenson's talk was called "Time to go Home". She is the author of "The Awakener" (Gateway Books, Bath, 1997) which she claims was channeled to her. She was the organiser of the Peace OM at Wembley Arena in August 1994.
