The Attitude of Survival
« on: April 16, 2013, 01:20:54 PM »

Not something as tangible as many other survival tools, and often overlooked, but without this 'can do' motivation, the others might not be enough...

The Attitude of Survival
A wilderness emergency could possibly happen to anyone, anywhere. When confronted with an unexpected survival situation man has the potential to overcome many challenges, beat incredible odds, and come out a survivor. But just what is survival anyway? Survival is the art of surviving beyond any event. To survive means to remain alive; to live. Survival is taking any given circumstance, accepting it, and trying to improve it, while sustaining your life until you can get out of the situation. And most importantly, survival is a state of mind.

Survival depends a great deal on a person's ability to withstand stress in emergency situations. Your brain is without doubt your best survival tool. It is your most valuable asset in a survival situation. It isn't always the physically strong who are the most effective or better at handling fear in emergency situations. Survival more often depends on the individual's reactions to stress than upon the danger, terrain, or nature of the emergency. To adapt is to live. Mental skills are much more important than physical skills in survival situations. A person's psychological reactions to the stress of survival can often make them unable to utilize their available resources. You most likely won't use your physical skills if you don't have a positive mental attitude.

One definitely must be in the proper frame of mind to survive an unplanned survival situation. Attitude or psychological state is most certainly number one. It is undoubtedly the most important ingredient of survival. With the proper attitude almost anything is possible. To make it through the worst a strong will or determination to live is needed. A powerful desire to continue living is a must. The mind has the power to will the body to extraordinary feats. Records have shown that will alone has often been the major factor for surviving wilderness emergencies. Without the will to live survival is impossible. Survival is possible in most situations but it demands a lot of a person. Humans can be very brave and resourceful when in emergency situations. The mind is a very powerful force. It has control of the body, its actions, and its reasoning. What affects you mentally affects you physically. If you think that you can't survive, then you won't try to survive. A commitment or goal to live, refusal to give up, and positive mental attitude greatly increase chances for survival.
 
A positive attitude has a very strong influence on the mentality and motivation necessary for setting a goal to live. Set goals give motivation and attitude necessary to survive pressures. When placed in an unexpected survival situation you will be forced to rely upon your own resources; improvising needs and solving problems for yourself. If you want to survive then you must ultimately decide to take care of yourself and to not count on others to help you. You must continually strive towards a goal of survival. Picture your goal in your mind and visualize yourself reaching it. A person with a stubborn strong will power can conquer many obstacles. Never give up your goal to live, because without any will to live those lost in the wilderness will likely despair and die.

While in your survival situation you will be confronted with many problems that you will need to overcome. Your brain will be your best asset but it could also be your most dangerous enemy. You will have to defeat negative thoughts and imaginations, and also control and master your fears. You will need to shift mental processes and adopt that positive and optimistic "can do attitude". You will need to be creative and use your ability to improvise to adapt to the situation. Work with nature instead of against it. You will have the crucial task of solving the problems of staying alive. Your problem solving must be based on recognizing threats to your life, knowing their priority of influence, knowing their severity of threat to your life, and taking actions that will keep you alive. It is important to consider your safety at all times. If you sum up and analyze what you need to combat it will be easier to fight known enemies than if you were fighting something unknown. Loneliness, fatigue, pain, cold/heat, hunger, thirst, and fear are your major enemies in emergency survival situations.

To keep your body alive you must react to your body's problem indicators and defend yourself against the major enemies of survival. Always remember to keep your positive mental attitude. Don't add any extra burden to yourself by falling into a destructive mental state like feeling self-pity or hopelessness. Remember the important aspects of your life and don't let the image fade. Think of being lost as an opportunity to explore a new area. With the proper attitude your experience could be interesting. Enjoy the challenge. You might as well enjoy the outdoors while you're there and grow stronger as an individual as a product of your survival experience. Your positive mental attitude will help you combat your survival enemies. Most people have more than likely experienced loneliness, fatigue, pain, cold/heat, hunger, thirst, and fear before, but have not had to combat them all at once, and to the extent that they have been a threat to their lives. Any one or a combination of them can diminish your self-confidence or reduce your desire to struggle for life. All of these feelings are perfectly normal but are more severe and dangerous in wilderness survival situations. By learning to identify them you will be able to control them instead of letting them control you.
 
Loneliness is a survival enemy that can hit you without warning. It will strike you when you realize you are the only person around who you can depend on while in your situation. Nowadays modern society barely gives us a chance to test our ability to adapt to silence, loss of support, and separation from others. Don't let loneliness gnaw at your positive attitude. Fight it by keeping busy by singing, whistling, daydreaming, gathering food, or doing anything else that will take your mind off the fact that you are alone. Also while in your survival situation, boredom or lack of interest might strike you. It must be cured to maintain a healthy survival attitude. Once again keep busy to keep your mind occupied.

Make sure to avoid fatigue. Fatigue is the overuse of the muscles and the mind and is a serious threat. It can cause you to lower your defenses and become less aware and alert to danger. It causes inattention, carelessness, and loss of judgment and reasoning. Take time to refresh and rest your brain and body. Conserve your energy. Rest, sleep, and calmness are essential. Pain is natures signal that something is wrong. When in moments of excitement you may not feel any pain. Don't let it get the best of you; it can weaken your desire to go on.

Cold and heat are other enemies of survival. Exposure to the elements can be very dangerous. Get sheltered as best you can. If cold try and find shelter and build a fire. If in really hot weather get out of the sun. In the cold you might find it easier to sleep in the day time and stay awake at night by a warm fire. In very hot weather you might also want to seek shelter and/or sleep in the daytime.

Hunger and thirst are enemies that can really depress your positive mental attitude. Try and find some water. Food can wait. A person can survive for weeks without food. Try and conserve your body's energy reserves. You may be better off resting than wandering around aimlessly looking for food. Even if you find food you may have depleted more energy than the food can supply you with. If you can acquire food easily then go for it. A man with a full belly can withstand more survival pressures than a man with an empty belly. Lack of nutrition could make you more susceptible to depression. Remember your positive frame of mind and keep your goal to live fresh in your mind.
 
Fear is a big enemy to guard against. Fear is a completely normal reaction for anyone faced with an out of ordinary situation that threatens his important needs. People fear a lot of things. People have fear of death, getting lost, animals, suffering, ridicule, and of their own weaknesses. The thing most feared by people going into the wilderness is getting lost. There is no way to tell how someone will react to fear. Fear usually depends entirely on the individual rather than on the situation at hand. Fear could lead a person to panic or stimulate a greater effort to survive. Fear negatively influences a man's behavior and reduces his chances for successful survival. The worst feelings that magnify fear are hopelessness and helplessness. Don't let the idea of a complete disaster cross your mind. There is no benefit in trying to avoid fear by denying the existence of a dangerous survival situation. You need to accept that fear is a natural reaction to a hazardous situation and try to make the best of your predicament.

Do your very best to control your fears. Be realistic. Don't let your imagination make mountains out of mole hills. Expect fear and learn to recognize it. Live with fear and understand how it can alter your effectiveness in survival situations. Don't be ashamed of any fears you may have. Control fear, don't let it control you. Fears can be lessened by keeping the body busy and free from thirst, hunger, pain, discomfort, and any other enemies to survival. Learning basic outdoor and first aid skills may help you prevent or ease fears by increasing your confidence in yourself. If fear creeps up on you make sure to think of positive things. Maintain your positive mental attitude.
 
A more dangerous enemy than fear is panic. Panic is an uncontrolled urge to run or hurry from the situation. Panic is triggered by the mind and imagination under stress. It results from fear of the unknown, lack of confidence, not knowing what to do next, and a vivid imagination. Fear can build up to panic and cause a person to make a bad situation worse. In a panic a person's rational thinking disappears and can produce a situation that results in tragedy. A panic state could lead to exhaustion, injury, or death. A positive mental attitude is still the best remedy. To combat fear and panic keep your cool, relax, see the brighter side of things, and stay in control. Keep up your positive self-talk and remember your goal of survival.

Keeping a positive mental outlook is for certain the most important aspect of survival. While in a survival situation you will practice self-reliance. You will only be able to depend on yourself and your abilities. You will have to overcome many challenges that you are not accustomed to. Modern society is conditioned to instant relief from discomforts such as darkness, hunger, pain, thirst, boredom, cold, and heat. Adapt yourself and tolerate it, it's only temporary. When you first realize that you're in a survival situation stop and regain your composure. Control your fears. Recognize dangers to your life. Relax and think; don't make any hasty judgments. Observe the resources around you. Analyze your situation and plan a course of action only after considering all of the aspects of your predicament. Be sure to keep cool and collected. It is important to make the right decision at all times.

Set your goal of survival and always keep it fresh in your mind. Never, never, ever give up. Prepare for the worst, but always hope for the best.

I acquired another case of MRE's today...  I swore I was done as I really don't have the means to move what I already have, most likely.  I think I am pushing the mass-capacity boundary, if there is such a thing.  However, I was offered another case today and I went ahead and acquired it.  How bad would I feel if we are 9-12 months into the apocalypse and we are out of food because I said, "Um, no, I already have enough."  I think I would be kicking myself in the ass in that scenario, and so I went ahead and grabbed it.  There is no such thing as, "I have enough," when the apocalypse or civil breakdown occurs.

You know Enlightenme, my wife and I were going over all of our supplies this past weekend and I remarked, "Do you remember where we started with all of this?"  I think we transported a whole 6 cases of MRE's from Kansas City to San Diego.  Now, I'm seriously thinking abour renting a U-Haul trailer and making a drop at a family member's house on our way to Texas.  I never imagined we would acquire as much as we have when I decided to start trying.  On the flip side, I didn't think we would still be here by today's date, 3 or 4 years ago.
 
My only advice is to just keep at it and be both proactive and ever vigilant for opportunities.  I haven't checked the on-line supply chain in a long time but you used to be able to get a case of MRE's for $65.00.  One or two cases a month adds up over time.  I have a competitve advantage and I won't apologize for using it when it comes to adding to our survival supplies.
 
Just keep at it as you never know.  If we know one thing for sure it is we will all need our supplies at some point in time and for some reason.  We may have a week and we may have years...  Peace friend.  JKB

JKB:  Thanks for the encouragement.  Yes, many of us thought we would have had the shift or even the collapse of the economy by now, but in spite of the present situation on many fronts, I still have this strong "urge" that something is going to happen, just don't know when, but I think that as soon as we relax, and think nothing is going to happen, we will suddenly experience TSHTF.  So your posting is timely and encouraging to those of us who are weary of living on edge.

My daughter said today that for several years she has put her life on hold, and not taken a vacation, traveled any amount of distance and sacrificed to prep.  Now she is in an excellent position, being well outfitted, and has finally realized she needs to stop to smell the roses and enjoy life while she still can.

So as you so eloquently stated in your posting, if we just do a bit of prepping every month, before we know it we will be well supplied.

Yes for sure, Thanks JKB!  No need to even consider apologizing for that "unfair advantage", Good for you for having it!  Part of my problems this year has been funds.  When there aren't really any additional monies to put into preps, you have to really start to get creative, or just put things on hold.  So, I've taken the creative approach.  I also put things a bit on hold because I knew I would be moving again.  But now that I am back in my old house, I can rest easy that I won't be moving again (except to the bug-out location), so I should only have to move all the stock, gear and preps one more time, thank heavens!!  I can relate to your U-haul concern!  Well, we will both keep on keepin on the best we can!  And Good Luck with your upcoming move!

Certainly, Ascension is happening, gradually and escalating.  And the effects of Planet X are increasing noticeably.  And the Dark Cabal are still active.

Here is my guess as to the timing situation :

A)    The Event(s) has/have been delayed beyond the times predicted or prophesied by many sources, including the Zetas themselves, in order to give time for more people to prepare for Ascension and/or Pole Shift  (according to some channelings, actually); and that is happening.

B)  But, there is a penalty for delay;  the Earth continues to degrade and suffer, the Dark Cabal continue to cause death and suffering, some supporters lose patience and reverse their opinions, some supplies spoil, and some individuals "snap" from the tension of contrary influences and commit atrocities.

C)  So then, the Council of Worlds -- or whoever is in control of the situation -- will let the final Shift(s) happen when the daily penalty of ongoing delay rises to be equal to the gain.

That makes sense Jim.  No doubt, the bad guys are still in charge and are acting out more and more frequently as their position deteriorates.  My family may just be an isolated incident, but I have lost both my Mother and my Mother-In-Law since February.  Two of my fellow "co-workers" have lost close relatives recently, actually, make that three, one just last weekend.  In addition to my Mother, my Sister has lost three of her long-time dear friends, all since my Mother passed.
 
It just seems like there is a lot of people moving elsewhere in the spirit world all of a sudden.  I can't help but wonder if it is a random fluke or it is related to ascension.

JKB I am very happy for your wife and you, that you have got a really good start on your prepping. Far beyond what a lot of people have done, probably.
I like the idea of buried caches along the bugout route. A family member's back yard would do as well. Well I am sure you know how to get the best prices so you probably don't need this...

This post isn't about food, but more about the mental attitude of surviving.  It is from tomkenyon.com.  The site has a number of categories including article, research, etc., but this one is from the "Hathors" which is a link over on the upper right.  There are many different articles there as well, the following being one.

I have done a number of their "meditations" and can attest that this one, at least for me, produces noticeable results.  But you must be able to calm your mind.  Further, initially when I tried some of these meditations, I had trouble doing several things mentally, at once.  These are not as easy as they appear--at least for me.  But practice does make perfect.  Hope you enjoy this one:

Partaking From the Solar Winds

A Hathor Planetary Message through Tom Kenyon


Note:
This message deals with the KA body (a term from ancient Egyptian Alchemy), and discusses how you can utilize this unique energy-body to draw to yourself ascension-energies from increased solar activity. For those unfamiliar with the KA—your KA body is an “invisible” second body that is the same shape and size as your physical body. This energy body both envelops the physical body and interpenetrates it. This body is sometimes referred to as the etheric double or spiritual twin. The KA shares similarities with what is called the Chi body in some traditions (Taoism) and with the pranic body or etheric body in certain yogic traditions. By its nature, the KA can draw to itself, and then into the physical body, highly benevolent energies that accelerate one’s spiritual evolution.
The Message

You are now entering a more volatile time in terms of planetary change.

Your Sun, the solar star of your planetary system, is increasing its energetic potential and is entering a period of increased volatility, solar flares and magnetic storms. While these actions will create real problems for you in terms of your telecommunications and weather patterns, there is also an immense evolutionary potential within this solar activity that we wish to discuss.

Like you, your Sun has an etheric body, a solar KA, if you will. This etheric body of the Sun extends millions of miles beyond the boundaries of the Sun itself. Your Earth is well within this auric field of the etheric sun, and, as the solar flares and solar winds that drive charged particles through your vicinity affect you physically, they also affect you etherically. Indeed, these very charged particles that pose a challenge to your physical dimension are a type of nourishment for your KA, your own etheric body.

Your mental attitude and emotional/vibratory state is what determines whether these solar particles are a source of nourishment and evolution, or rather a source of annoyance and de-evolution.

In this message we do not intend to discuss the many physical challenges that will emerge for you during this period of increased solar activity, rather we will focus on things that will assist you to take the greatest evolutionary advantage of what is occurring with the Sun of your solar system.

Just as there are eruptions of fire and photonic energy from the Sun during solar activity, so too, there are bursts of spiritual or interdimensional light from within your KA body. Indeed, from one perspective, increased solar activity equates with an increased activation of your own personal KA.

There are several things we suggest regarding taking advantage of this evolutionary catalyst. This catalyst of which we speak will extend well beyond 2012 and has to do with the flow of what we call the solar winds. These are distinct flows of photonic and magnetic energy that pass through and around your Earth. By opening yourself to these distinct forms of energy, and by incorporating them into your KA body, you strengthen your KA and greatly accelerate the ascension process for yourself.

As these solar energies increase, so will the volatility and uncertainty of your physical world, as well as your mental and emotional worlds. Irrationality and impulsive behavior will be on the rise. Challenges to cognitive functioning and memory will also take place during heightened cycles of solar activity.

The first step in utilizing these solar energies for your ascent in consciousness is to understand their nature and not to resist their effects.

It is important to understand that the causative agent in the increased solar activity at this time is not originating from within the Sun itself, but rather it is originating from the Central Sun of your own galaxy. This flow of highly catalytic energies from the Central Sun to your Sun is the primary reason for the evolutionary potentials of this particular cycle of solar activity. In turn, the Earth herself is also being affected, especially through her KA—her own etheric body.

So the first thing to understand is that there is no escape from this evolutionary catalyst. You are here to ride it out, whether you like it or not. So the first step is not to resist that which is imminent.

The second step is to embrace it and to utilize these energies with mastery—to ride the tail of the dragon, so to speak. In this instance, the dragon is referring to the Sun itself and the tail to the solar winds. You can ascend to great heights in this period, if you but find the courage and method to do so.

The third step in this utilization of the solar winds is to allow them to affect your KA directly, through an invitation, and this is done through your heart.  Specifically you choose, through an act of personal will, to enter into the vibrational harmonic of appreciation or gratitude.

It is important to understand why we are suggesting this. You are not expressing appreciation or gratitude to the universe for the solar winds, per se.

You are choosing to enter into one of these high emotional states because they will create an Energy Attractor. In other words, you are entering into a state of appreciation or gratitude for pragmatic reasons.

These emotional states increase the receptive harmonics of your KA, which transforms your entire KA body into a receptive vortex, drawing to itself the photonic and magnetic energies of the Sun, rapidly accelerating the rate of vibration within your KA, your own etheric body.

And it is through your KA that you enter into the ascension process. There are, needless to say, many paths and ways to enter the ladder that leads upward into higher states of consciousness, but regardless of how it is done, or through what spiritual lineage it is accomplished, the KA, your KA, is the foundation.
Creating an Energy Attractor

In this simple but highly effective method, you place your awareness in your second body, your KA. This energy body is the same shape and size as your physical body, but it is energetic in nature, rather than made of flesh and blood. It permeates every space of your body, and thus every cell of your body is within the KA. Your KA is also highly receptive to subtle energies especially to all forms of light and to the charged photons and magnetic energies that comprise the solar winds.

As you rest your awareness in your KA, you consciously and intentionally generate the feeling-state of appreciation or gratitude through an act of personal will. This shifts the harmonics of your KA to a higher vibratory rate, which is necessary for it to become an Energy Attractor.

As you continue to hold yourself in the emotional harmonic of appreciation or gratitude, know (realize) that you are immersed in the photonic and subtle energies of the solar winds. You are literally bathing in these energies whether you are consciously aware of them or not. As you hold this awareness, along with the emotional state of appreciation or gratitude, your KA will automatically draw into itself the ascension-enhancing energies of the solar winds.

Spend as long as you can in this state of high receptivity, partaking from the solar winds, and allowing your KA to receive these potent transformational and uplifting energies.
You will benefit greatly from the solar winds if you regularly and often engage this simple method.
The Crystal Palace Within Meditation

We also suggest that you experiment, from time to time, on a regular basis, with the sound meditation we gave previously entitled The Crystal Palace Within. (Links to the instructions for the meditation, which include the audio track for this sound meditation appear at the end of this message.)
Summary

As we view your current probable future, you collectively stand before a great storm. The birthing of this tempest is from the very heart of the cosmos and is nothing less than the harbinger of immense change. Do not fear its intensity. Embrace it and ride it to the heights of your own consciousness. By doing so, you will become a light to yourself and to each other.

Tom’s Thoughts and Observations

The Hathors’ method for Creating An Energy Attractor is the central crux of this message. Having worked with it many times and in multiple situations, I can honestly say it delivers the goods. And it is well worth the attention of those who wish to experiment with ascension energetics, especially during such optimal times as these for accelerated evolution (a’ la the solar winds).

One of the beauties of this simple, yet elegant method, is that it builds the KA quite rapidly, and it can be done without any hocus pocus, meaning you can get right down to it in a few minutes without any preliminaries. But there are some critical transition phases in the method that I think would prove helpful to elucidate further.

A bit of caution is advised.

Before we continue, I feel it would be good to insert a caution here. This is not a method for idle curiosity seekers. Charging the KA body with extra energy is a potent and profound undertaking, which should not (in my opinion) be entered into lightly.

One reason for this is that as the KA becomes energized there will be a marked increase in the likelihood that you will experience the physical world as illusionary.

For instance, after particularly strong sessions with the Method (i.e., Creating an Energy Attractor) I often (though not always) experience my KA as just as vividly real as my physical body. In these instances, I am aware of my physical environment as usual (through my five senses), but it has a surrealistic tonal quality, and I sometimes have the distinct impression that I am in two bodies simultaneously—my physical and my KA.

This is, in point of fact, one of the primary shifts of attention that can take place when working with the KA. And I think one would do well to be aware of this possibility. Thus, when/if it arises, you won’t think that you are losing your mental grip on reality—which is why I am belaboring this point.

I think it is fair to say if you practice the Method, you will eventually sense physical reality in new ways—especially when your KA reaches critical mass.  By critical mass I mean those moments when your KA has been charged to such an extent that it affects your perception of reality.

In these moments, you may continue to, and probably will, experience the world through the five senses, but you might also see through the play of Maya (the illusion of the senses and the sensorial world). This can be amusing, exhilarating and blissful, or quite disorienting, quite frankly.

In point of fact, charging the KA can result, as I mentioned earlier, in the very odd perception of having two bodies simultaneously—one physical and the other energetic. While this is actually a sign of progress in terms of the KA’s development, it can be mentally challenging if you aren’t prepared for it.

Mental disorientation caused by seeing the world as an illusion should not be underestimated, especially if you are not prepared intellectually and philosophically for such a perception.

This, of course, brings us to a philosophical conundrum—is the world real or is it an illusion perpetrated by the dance of subatomic particles driven by the quirks and quarks of the quantum realm? For me, it (the world) is both real and unreal. And what determines our perception of it depends upon what is happening in our brains, and in the case of the KA, our etheric twin as well.
The Niyama of ethical constraint

I personally feel that anyone who chooses to charge his or her KA with ascension-energetics needs to have some philosophical underpinning regarding personal ethics—i.e., what you will allow yourself to do, and what you will not allow yourself to do.

The reason for this is that as your KA becomes energized, certain types of mental/spiritual powers will naturally arise. It is also vital to understand (in my opinion) that sometimes life-negative aspects of your consciousness may also arise as well. This inherently uncomfortable situation (i.e., the humble realization that there is something negative within you) is actually an opportunity for greater self-insight (if you choose to embrace self-awareness over unconsciousness).

Very simply put, the Niyama of Constraint helps you by placing a boundary on behavior, whether overt (meaning in the outer world) or subtle (meaning in the inner words).

It is up to you to determine what ethical constraint you choose. But for those who have not thought about this much, I offer a simple, highly beneficial niyama:

“I shall strive to remain harmless to myself and others.”

By striving to be harmless to yourself and others, you create a mental ally that will serve you, and others, as you climb the Ladder of your own consciousness to higher states of being.

But… if you are unwilling or unable to embrace this simple constraint on behavior, or another of your own choosing, then I strongly suggest you stay away from this way of building your KA.
Practical Suggestions

According to the Hathors, everyone alive is going to be affected by the solar winds, whether they invite the energetics or not.  For some of us, these energies are going to be downright maddening and difficult to contend with. Others of us will use these same energies to elevate and move up the tonal scale of ascended awareness.

There are many degrees or gradations of the ascension process, and if you have not previously read the Hathor message entitled The Art of Jumping Timelines, I suggest you consider doing so. It explains the basic concept of ascension and how to engage it.  You can find it in the Hathor Archives of our website.

If you are prepared for the rapid expansion of awareness and activation of your KA that this method brings, I have a few practical suggestions.

First of all, find your balance point. As you work with the Method you will find your own personal comfort zone, meaning how much increased energy in your KA you can tolerate. As you continue to work with the Method, you will be able to handle more energy. But don’t push the river, so to speak. Be gentle with yourself and be moderate.

I also don’t suggest doing this just before going to sleep, or you might not sleep! Again, each of us is different, and some of you may find it to be a great sedative. I do not. (CONTINUED)

Transition Phases of the Method

There are three fundamental phases in this technique.

First Phase


Place your awareness in your KA body, your spiritual twin or your ethteric double as it (the KA) is sometimes referred to. Since the KA is the same size and shape as your physical body, the inner space of your entire physical body is interpenetrated by this energy body.

Second Phase


As you hold your focus of attention on the entire KA body (from your head to your toes) shift your emotions into the harmonic of appreciation or gratitude. You do this by simply remembering the feeling of appreciation or gratitude. This creates the harmonic required for building the Energy Attractor. This emotional tone is absolutely necessary for creating the Energy Attractor as the Hathors describe it in their message.

Third Phase


Continuing to focus your mental awareness in your KA and simultaneously holding the harmonic of appreciation or gratitude, realize (know) that you are in a sea of photonic and magnetic energies. You are immersed in the solar winds without having to do anything. Once you successfully hold this concept along with attention in your KA and holding the harmonic of appreciation or gratitude, your KA will automatically start to draw in the ascension-enhancing energies of the solar winds.

This may be a tricky phase for beginners since the photonic and magnetic energies of the solar winds do not present themselves through the five senses. These energies are too subtle to be detected via the senses. However, the KA body can and will detect them and will draw them into itself much like (to use a biological metaphor) a plant senses the presence of water and draws the water into itself as needed.

Again, each person is unique in how he or she perceives the physical world and the subtle worlds of consciousness. Part of the discovery process that comes with the creation of an Energy Attractor is to find out how these subtle photonic and magnetic energies present themselves to you. As you continue to work with the Method you will become more familiar and comfortable with how you personally experience these unique subtle energies.
An Experiment in Consciousness and Healing

One of the fascinating things about this method of drawing energy to the KA is that it can be used to send healing and transformative energy to the physical body as well.

Since the KA interpenetrates every space of the physical body, there is no tissue, organ or system that is outside the KA. As a result of this, it is possible to draw ascension-energetics (i.e. via the solar winds) not only into the KA, but also into the physical body. This is, of course, a theoretical statement that will need to be proven as true, or not, by you through direct experience—your experience.

I call this application of the Method (i.e. Creating an Energy Attractor) An Experiment in Consciousness and Healing because each of us will find our own way to work with the healing potentials of this that are unique to us.

Perhaps a few things I have noticed when working in this way with myself will prove helpful to others.

My own personal experience is that after I draw the energetics of the solar winds into my KA and let my KA body build itself for a while, I just shift my attention into any area of my body needing “healing,” and since energy follows awareness, the subtle energetics move from my KA into the area where I am focused.

This is not concentration. I repeat, not, concentration. It is as easy as taking a breath or lifting a feather. The subtle energetics in your KA will move effortlessly anywhere in your body you move your attention to—if you allow the movement.

As the flow of subtle energy flows from my KA into an area of my body needing “support” or “healing” I feel the tissues in those areas being energized somewhat like, though considerably less intensely, than when my KA is being energized by the solar winds (i.e. via the Energy Attractor). For me this energizing of my cells shows up as a physical sensation that is either comforting and/or energizing in the area where I am focused. Sometimes there are various presentations of interdimensional perceptions such as light and sometimes even inner  (or psychic) sound.

If you choose to explore this realm of possibilities for yourself, you will, no doubt, become familiar with how you experience the subtle energies of healing as they flow into your physical body from your KA.

One thing to take into consideration is that healing and transformative energies from the KA have a faster vibratory rate (in relation to the physical body). Thus, you may find a type of psycho-spiritual detox taking place if there is a lot of energetic-congestion in an organ or area of the body where you are focusing.

It is certainly possible to send healing and transformative energy from the KA to an area of your physical body without having any uncomfortable reactions. However, if you do experience discomfort, especially of the mental/emotional kind, you might consider reading an article I wrote some time ago entitled—Psycho-spiritual Detoxification: Thoughts and Observations—which you can find in the Articles section of the website.

My other suggestion is to drink some water if you have experienced a particularly strong response in your physical body after doing the Experiment (in Consciousness and Healing).
Final Thoughts

I suggest experimenting with the Method (just building the Energy Attractor by itself, as described by the Hathors) in short sessions to begin with. Find a time and space where you won’t be interrupted. Five to ten minutes is more than enough time to begin with. After you charge the KA, spend a few minutes sensing your KA, your physical body, and your immediate environment as it presents itself to you through your five senses. This sensing of your KA, your physical body and the environment will help you to integrate the charged energies more effectively. Remember, the reality of the KA does not circumvent the reality of the physical world or your physical body. It is an enhancement to the physical; it is, in fact, another dimension of consciousness.

It is a totally subjective call on your part as to how long and how often you work with the Method. Besides entering this work with curiosity, I think one of the most important things is to be joyful when creating an Energy Attractor. After all, as a creator, wouldn’t you want joy to be part of what you create?

This is just a simple concept but one I would like to share. Do you feel "lucky?" Feeling like you have a good shot at surviving is a big part of it.
The previous posts about food and where people were in their preps were part of it too...
Just making a mental calculation, a comparison, sharing it with others here...This communication is indeed a part of the provess of surviving...

Not sure if it's "lucky" I feel.  It's more like what Pasteur said, "Chance favors the prepared mind.", which IIRC reading, that that was his response to someone who claimed he was "just lucky" for having made his discovery/ies.

So, it's not luck, but more like a feeling I have a better chance than I would have, had I ignored all the warnings in dreams, visions, of my own, plus that of others.

Do you feel lucky?
