The Forbidden Gospel of Mary Magdalene

Of all the earliest followers of Christ, none has sparked the level of interest generated by one particular woman – the biblical figure known as Mary Magdalene.

Revered as a saint, maligned as a prostitute, imagined as the literal bride of Christ, Mary of Magdala stands apart as an enigmatic individual about whom little is actually known, despite centuries of scholarly scrutiny and wild conjecture.

All that most Western Christians know about her is presented in the New Testament Gospels, and even that information is disputed. But there is some general agreement: She was a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ whom he had delivered from “evil spirits and infirmities.” Along with several other women, she ministered to Christ and witnessed his death on the Cross.

She was there when his body was placed in the tomb, when the stone was rolled away to reveal an empty chamber, when an angel announced that Christ had risen from the dead – and when he made his first post-Resurrection appearance to the living. She brought the news of his Resurrection to the other disciples.

For 1,500 years, Mary Magdalene was portrayed, in art and theology, as a prostitute whose life was transformed by Jesus’ forgiveness. This notion, based on Luke 7:38, was the result of an erroneous sermon preached in 591 by Pope Gregory the Great.

Noted French author Jean-Yves Leloup states that “only in 1969 did the Catholic Church officially repeal Gregory’s labeling of Mary Magdalene as a whore, thereby admitting their error.”

The stain of immorality attached to the figure of Mary Magdalene averted attention away from the significant role she plays in the unfolding of Christ’s teachings. The importance of Mary is especially apparent in Gnostic texts – some among the earliest accounts of Jesus’ ministry – which have been largely suppressed and ignored by Church authorities.

The Gnostic picture of Mary departs – in some ways, dramatically – from the historical and biblical image of perhaps the most significant female follower of Jesus.

The second-century Gospel of Mary was found in the late 19th century by archaeologists but remained largely ignored and untranslated for 50 years. It is the only account named for a woman and offers a different view of Christianity – one that describes an “interior spirituality,” says Karen L. King, author of The Gospel of Mary of Magdala: Jesus and the First Woman Apostle.

In the Mary Magdalene account, “salvation is not something that comes from an external saviour,” says King. “One has to seek salvation within.” Thus, the Magdalene gospel depicts Jesus as a teacher rather than as a saviour who dies to atone for humanity’s sins.

In her introduction in The Complete Gospels, King says:

“…the Gospel of Mary communicates a vision that the world is passing away, not toward a new creation or a new world order, but toward the dissolution of an illusory chaos of suffering, death, and illegitimate domination.

The Saviour has come so that each soul might discover its own true spiritual nature, its ‘root’ in the Good, and return to the place of eternal rest beyond the constraints of time, matter, and false morality.”

Another Gnostic text – the Gospel of Thomas – reveals that women were disciples of Christ. However the New Testament only includes gospels written by men and distinguishes between the women of Christ’s life, and the ‘disciples’ – who are all male.

“You find in the [Gnostic] Gospel of Thomas that six disciples are named: Matthew and Thomas, James and Peter, Mary Magdalene and Salome,” says Prof.

Elaine Pagels, professor of religion at Princeton University, and author of The Gnostic Gospels and Beyond Belief: The Secret Gospel of Thomas.

“Here, explicitly, Mary Magdalene is Jesus’ disciple. In the Gospel of Thomas and also the Gospel of Mary Magdalene, she is seen as an evangelist and a teacher, somebody who is gifted with revelations and teachings from Jesus which are very powerful and which enable her to be a spiritual inspiration to others.”

The Gnostics honoured equally the feminine and masculine aspects of nature, and Prof. Pagels argues Christian Gnostic women enjoyed a far greater degree of social and ecclesiastical equality than their orthodox sisters.

For Jean Yves-Leloup, the founder of the Institute of Other Civilisation Studies and the International College of Therapists, Mary Magdalene is the intimate friend of Jesus and the initiate who transmits his most subtle teachings.

His translation of the Gospel of Mary is presented in his book The Gospel of Mary Magdalene along with a commentary on the text which was discovered in 1896, nearly 50 years before the Gnostic Gospels at Nag Hammadi were found.

The Gospel of Mary can easily be divided into two parts. The first section (7,1-9,24) describes the dialogue between the risen Christ and the disciples. He answers their questions concerning matter and sin.

“Christ teaches that sin is not a problem of moral ignorance so much as a manifestation of imbalance of the soul,” says James Robinson, Professor Emeritus of Religion at Claremont Graduate University in The Nag Hammadi Library in English.

“Christ then encourages the disciples to spread his teachings and warns them against those who teach of spirituality as an external concept rather than as an internal, Gnostic experience,” says Robinson.

After he departs, however, the disciples are grieved and in considerable doubt and consternation. Mary Magdalene comforts them and turns their hearts toward the Good and a consideration of Christ’s words.

The second section of the text (10,1-23; 15,1-19,2) contains a description by Mary of special revelation given to her by Christ. At Peter’s request, she tells the disciples about things that were hidden from them.

The basis for her knowledge is a vision of the Lord and a private dialogue with Him. Unfortunately four pages of the text are missing here so only the beginning and end of Mary’s revelation are available.

This fragment of the gospel describes Mary’s vision of the soul’s ascent beyond the “powers” including the powers of fear. For the Gnostics, these “powers” are the Archons which act as cosmic prison wardens, attempting to prevent souls ascending to the True God.

“It (the soul) has to overcome the powers of fear and the powers that threaten it as it proceeds into a life beyond death,” Prof. Elaine Pagels explains.

After Mary finishes recounting her vision to the disciples, Andrew and then Peter challenge her on two grounds. First of all, Andrew says, these teachings are strange. Secondly, Peter questions, would Christ really have told such things to a woman and kept them from the male disciples.

Levi admonishes Peter for contending with the woman as against their adversaries and acknowledges that Christ loved her more than the other disciples. He entreats them to be ashamed, to put on the “perfect man”, and to go forth and preach as Christ had instructed them to do. They immediately go forth to preach and the text ends.

This confrontation between Mary and Peter is well documented in a number of Gnostic scriptures. Mary exposes the small mindedness and superficiality of Peter and Andrew who find it difficult to comprehend, let alone accept, the deeper spiritual understanding Mary acquired through her personal experience and closer relationship with Christ.

James Robinson observes:

“Indeed Peter and Andrew seem to prefer the very thing against which Christ warned them – a religion based on arbitrary ideas (in this case represented by Peter’s male chauvinism and Andrew’s ignorance).

“And yet many of their ideas have shaped modern Christianity while, paradoxically, Mary Magdalene’s spirituality, which here seems more consistent with the teachings of Christ, is unheard of today.”

Was the Philadelphia Experiment the Opening of Pandora’s Box?

Long ago, in the distant 1943 a ship named “USS Eldridge” was about to be tested by The US Navy.

Great minds like Albert Einstein had part in the experiment which included his Unified Field Theory (this theory is uniting the fields of electromagnetism and gravity into one field, in other words if light were bent, then space-time would be bent, effectively creating an invisible time machine).

Everything was set for the test, the crew was on the boat, 2 massive Tesla Coils run through the ship, a couple of magnetic generators were installed and everything seemed normal, well as normal as it gets for crazy scientists. But then, everything went… well, let’s just say bizarre.

I’ll get back to the insanity but let me first explain what the test was about. The US Navy wanted to create a special boat that had magnetic invisibility, radar invisibility, optical invisibility, pretty much every invisibility there is.
 There was a theory Nikola Tesla finished in 1943 shortly before he died and the theory was some kind of a “Unified Field Theory”. With this theory it was possible to use a large Tesla Coil and make things disappear creating an exact replica that comes into being a short distance away (The movie “The Prestige” makes a reference of this).


This was unknown and kept in secret by every member of the experiment until Morris K. Jessup, an astronomer and former graduate-level researcher, published The Case for the UFO.

If you think this book reviled the secrets of the Philadelphia experiment, then you are wrong. This book had not a single thing about the experiment or its secrets. So what part did this book played?

It was a man, a mystery man calling himself “Carlos Allende” who saw the book and decided that Morris K. Jessup was a man who could understand him, someone who would listen to what he has to say without picturing him in a straitjacket.

So, Carlos contacted our guy Morris by writing him a good old fashioned letter. In the letter he described the horror that really happened in the “Philadelphia Experiment” and explained that he saw everything from the “SS Andrew Furuseth”, a nearby merchant ship where he was serving at the time.

According to Allende, Einstein had developed the Unified Field Theory, but had suppressed it, since mankind was not ready for it, a confession that the scientist shared with the mathematician, philosopher and his dear friend Bertrand Russell.

When Morris tried to contact Mister Carlos the reply arrived a couple of months later by correspondent identifying himself as “Carl M. Allen”. Because of safety measures Morris terminated communication with this new “Carl” guy.

That was how the truth about “The Philadelphia Experiment” came out from the “closet”, but what really happened on that ship. The thing I am going to describe is beyond the wildest imagination. It is crazy, I mean “Fringe” meeting “The Outer Limits” crazy.

As I said everything was ready and normal and then the scientists pushed the button starting the generators and transferring electric energy through the Tesla Coils that run through the ship. As the electromagnetic field increased in strength, it began to extend as far as 100 yards out from the ship in all directions, forming a large sphere and making the ship fuzzy. Greenish fog started to surround the ship.

No screams were heard by the crew on the ship. Suddenly the ship vanished, not just from the view, but from Philadelphia all together. To make things even stranger, the ship appeared several hundred miles at Norfolk, Virginia, staying there for couple of minutes and then reappearing in Philadelphia again.

The ship was “un-synced” from This Universe which is why it was able to travel from Philly to Virginia and back instantly but that was not the horror “Carlos” described. Some members of the crew were disoriented; others were “basket cases”.

Strangely a couple of the members were missing – “Just like They Have Been Erased From Time Itself”. However, the most disturbing view was seeing some of the crew members embedded in the bulkheads, decks and railings of the ship. They were alive and literally a part of the ship.

A lot of them were killed instantly, some were taken for experimenting, and others were taken and locked into asylums. Some survivors, who were alive and as fine as you can be after such trauma, reported blacking out from a couple of minutes to a couple of hours.

Rumors have been heard that some men entered into what was called the “Freeze”. This is where men faded from view, unable to move, speak or otherwise affect their surroundings. Interestingly enough, invisible crewmen were still visible to other sailors who had survived the original experiment.

After a while, the Freeze effect lasted for days or months, and became known as the “Deep Freeze” driving crewmen crazy. The only way men were able to recover from the “Deep Freeze” was by other crewmen performing a “Laying on of Hands” technique. Unfortunately, two men burst into flames while Laying on of Hands, burning for 18 days despite all attempts to quench the fire. [1]

I know, this sounds like somebody had a little too much free time and a wild imagination but this is strange even for the wildest imagination and exactly that fact proves that this might be true. Even if all of this is 90% false and just a fantasy story, that 10% is still frightening.

And think about this, if 50 years ago people were experimenting with Time Travel, Unified Field Theory, and Teleportation, what are they experimenting with today. Even though, this sounds bizarre and sci-fi it is all theoretically possible and this experiment was just the beginning of human manipulation with electromagnetic fields.

After “The Philadelphia Experiment” ended, “The Phoenix Project” started culminating with “The Montauk Project” in 1980s at Camp Hero or Montauk Air Force Station on Montauk, Long Island for the purpose of developing psychological warfare techniques and exotic research including time travel.

According to astrophysicist and UFO researcher Jacques Vallée, the Montauk Experiment stories seem to have originated with the account of Preston Nichols, who claimed to have recovered repressed memories of his own involvement. [2]

Many believe in the story of “Carlos Allende” and many see it as a plot to a sci-fi movie. Be that as it may, “The Philadelphia Experiment” showed just how powerful electromagnetic manipulation can be and maybe it even created the anomaly of “The Bermuda Triangle”.

It was for sure an opening of Pandora’s Box in terms of science and as much as we want to know what really happened we can never be 100% sure. All that we can is believe in what we find to be mostly true and fill up the blanks with our imagination.

The 5 Soul Groups You Belong To

 

Do you ever feel like you just don’t belong? Well, think again.

Your soul is energy and this same energy is what creates everyone and everything in this Universe. When broken down to purely an energetic state, we are all connected and we are all one.

We are all here because we have a purpose to be here and a reason and motivation for existing. Many wise sages over the years have said that Earth is simply a playground where we come to learn things and experience life in the material form.

On Earth we can indulge in physical and material pleasures, and learn what it means to feel love, hate and everything in between.

On a soul level, we are all here to walk this journey, and even though everyone’s path is slightly different, we all come here with a group of souls that are energetically in harmony with us. These Soul Groups are connected to us in higher realms and also during our time on Earth.

People from our designated Soul Groups are those that we have a soul contract with, and are supposed to be part of our learning journey on this earth. Sometimes we also agree to team up with these souls in order to create and bring new innovation to earth.

We all belong to certain soul groups, and these soul groups all serve a different purpose in our lives.

The 5 Different Soul Groups You Belong To

Soul Group #1: Source

Firstly, it is important to understand that we are all Source energy. In a sense, everything in this Universe is part of Source energy, which makes all of us connected.

Although we are connected to everything in the Universe, all of our soul’s chose Earth as the perfect place to materialize. And so together, we are all responsible for life on planet earth.

Every action and every thought creates a ripple in the cosmos that effects everyone. When we do harm to ourselves or to others, this energy goes out there and shapes the world that we live in.

Just the same, when we do something loving for ourselves or others, that energy also shapes the world that we live in.

Soul Group #2: Soul Community

Your Soul Community is a group of souls that share similar lessons and themes in life.

Every member of your Soul Community would have come to Earth with the intention of learning how to grow in a particular area and how to bring new creative ideas or inspirations to a particular field.

Members of your Soul Community are often relatives, friends, coworkers, employees, and people who really inspire you or have the same mission as you.

Your Soul Community can also include significant encounters like a stranger that helps you when you are having a bad day, or even a particular school teacher that left a lasting impression on you growing up.

Basically, your Soul Community is people who touch your life in a significant way but perhaps are not permanent features of your life. They can also be people that share the same philosophy as you.

Your Soul Community could be hundreds, even thousands of people depending on the path you have chosen.

Soul Group #3: Soul Family

This is the immediate family members that you have chosen to incarnate with in this life, however this group can also include people that have taken on the role of being like family to you.

Members of your Soul Family often have a close bond and are also here to learn similar lessons and themes as you.

It is important to note here that regardless of the relationship with your immediate family, your soul chose to reincarnate with them for a particular lesson or experience.

Before your soul came down to Earth it made agreements with every member of your immediate family to be connected genetically and to experience a similar set of life circumstances.

In higher realms, all of your souls teamed up and understood that by coming into a certain gene pool you were all going to have to explore certain themes, patterns, and energies together.

Soul Group #4: Soulmates

Out of all the Soul Groups, this one is often the most significant and when we meet people from this group, we often have a spiritual awakening or feel a deeper spiritual connection.

Your Soulmate Group is around 3-9 people and these souls play a very significant part of your life.

Your Soulmate Group can include family members, friends and of course, lovers. All of these soulmates will leave a lasting impression on your life and will often have a hand in changing your life.

Soulmates touch your life on the deepest of levels. These are the people that you have the strongest connections with, they can also be the people that challenge and push you the most.

When you meet a soulmate for the first time, there is often a familiar bond and perhaps you feel connected in more lives than just this one.

Everyone has a group of soulmates that they come to Earth with, but not all soulmates are destined to meet or be together. Every soulmate journey is different, but if a member of your Soulmate Group is present in your life, you will definitely know.

In higher realms, your Soulmate Group is also one that you train and study with. In fact, you all work together to help each other to learn lessons and experience growth.

When you shift out of human form, your soul will connect with your Soulmate Group in higher realms and all of you will work together and help each other to understand the lives that you lead on Earth.

In higher realms, your Soulmate Group is like your support group. You all share a special bond as you are each other’s biggest supporters.

Soul Group #5: Twin Flame

When our soul comes to earth not all of our energy enters into our body. The rest of our energy can remain in higher realms or it can be transferred into another body.

When you have two bodies with the same soul energy, it is referred to as Twin Flame. While everyone has soul energy left in higher realms that they are connected to, having a Twin Flame on Earth can be pretty rare.

Reincarnating into two different bodies is often a lot of hard work for a soul, which is why it is often only seen in advanced souls that are looking to come to Earth for rapid learning.

It is possible to have more than one “twin” flame, however humanity has perhaps not reached that level of consciousness just yet.

Twin Flames often find each other during their time on Earth, but the purpose of their connection is not just romantic as commonly believed.

When Twin Flames come together it is often for a higher cause and to impart knowledge and wisdom to Earth.

Twin Flame connections can be extremely intense but underneath all of that intensity, there may also be a feeling that you are both coming together for a higher cause.

Unique Ancient Map Depicting The Earth As Seen From Space Restored Digitally

 

 

AncientPages.com – In 1587, Urbano Monte (1544-1613) a little-known cartographer created an amazing, hand-drawn, 10 feet by 10 feet map.

Not only does the map depict the Earth as seen from space, when directly looking down at the North Pole, but it’s also filled with incredible images of foreign locations and astonishing mythological creatures such as for example Siberian unicorns, ship-attacking mermen and terrifying giant birds.

Amazing mythological creatures have always fascinated people and now we have a chance to view them through the eyes of our ancestors.

This unique world atlas has now been restored and digitally stitched together. Cartographer Monte who was very interested in geography was from a wealthy family in Milan, Italy.

In 1585, he met with a Japanese delegation and scientists think the map he created is the result of his meeting and stories he heard about Japan. The world atlas contains numerous names within Japan, which don’t appear on other Western maps created at the time.

Monte created his map 18 years after Gerardus Mercator, the best-known mapmaker of all time made the map that is used today in most classrooms and smartphone apps.

Mercator’s great contribution to cartography is that he changed its nature with the help of his artistic enhancements and forever altered ocean navigation with his projection method, which was the most influential invention of early cartography.

Monte on the other hand wanted to show the circular nature of the Earth. According to Rumsey, Monte’s work is much more than just a map. “It’s a whole scientific instrument.

5 Traps Used to Shut Down and Limit Human Consciousness

 

The human condition at present is one of slavery, a new kind of slavery, where bondage is psychological and spiritual rather than physical.

Human consciousness is the target in a broad war of control where people willingly acquiesce to social conditions which clearly fail to serve their best interests, even doing them harm.

We accept the status quo of warfare, fear, environmental destruction, greed, corruption, poisoned health and false scarcity because we’ve been herded into traps which hold us hostage with false beliefs and the appearance of comfort.

In reality, though, breaking through these traps would allow us to apply the principles of peace, sustainability, exploration, acceptance and progress to improving the human condition.

Firstly, though, we have to see and acknowledge the boundaries of the prison we are in.

“There’s five essential boxes for human consciousness, there’s five things that shut human consciousness down. Five models that attempt to keep people rigidly inside of their walls. And if you’re inside these boxes, you’re not going to expand your awareness to understand the actual truth of what’s going on in our world.” ~ Mark Passio

1. Politics

“If anybody identifies with left or right, conservative Republican, liberal Democrat, etc…” ~ Mark Passio

The self-identification with a particular political party is one of the most divisive states of consciousness there is in our world today.

This is clearly evident in the quality and character of public discourse and how it merges with financial interests to create stress, pressure and conflict at every level of society.

2. Religion

The major cultural religions of the world are perhaps the greatest trap for human consciousness ever devised and put to use as a means of controlling people. This has been corrupting the world and killing people for thousands of years.

The acceptance of the possibility of a better existence after death is an excuse to ignore the quality of life one is living in this existence, and is used as an excuse to participate in wickedness.

We of course see how this paradigm is being used against us today to create a major riff among the people of the earth as global leaders push for a new religious war pitting Islam against Christianity. No one can win if this battle is allowed to escalate.

3. Scientism

“Not what I call real science, but what I call ultra rigid skepticism in the form of quote/unquote science, that’s peddled for modern science in today’s world.” ~ Mark Passio

Science has become a religion of sorts, where ideas are vetted in a strange process of study mixed with peer review, mixed with corporate and monetary influence, mixed with egos.

In this paradigm, there is no room for ideas which challenge long-held assumptions and theories about the world, stifling human progress.

Rebel researchers like Graham Hancock and Rupert Sheldrake, are examples of how interesting ideas about where the human is coming from and where it is headed are shut down by the rigid thinking of a scientific world which pushes wholesale skepticism as affable quality.

“Science places itself on a pedestal and assures everyone it has dispassionately arrived at its conclusions. Meanwhile, however, it is full of assumptions, denials and limitations, and makes the serious mistake of presenting its theories as facts. The errors of mainstream science are gladly seized upon by technocrats, eager to use science and technology to further their own ambitions of control…” ~ Makia Freeman

4. The New Age Movement

Another box for human consciousness which is relatively new in our world is the New Age Movement, which abandons genuine science in favor of feel good platitudes which keep people sidelined from taking action and fully participating in our world. It is a unique, open source belief system which

It’s tenets are described by the following 10 bullets here:

1. Ignore the “Negative”

2. Never Get Angry

3. It’s All One, So it’s All Good

4. You Can Never Really Know

5. Accept Injustice, Never Resist

6. A Watered-Down Law of Attraction

7. Turning the Other Cheek (it evens out the scars!)

8. Chaos Should Be Feared

9. We Must Feel Good all the Time

10. Truth Doesn’t Need to be Defended

Mark Passio

5. The Monetary System – The General Belief in Money

This is the greatest trap of all, enslaving nearly everyone on our planet. At the root of this deception is the general belief in money, that is, in the belief that money has more value than life itself and is therefore more precious than anything life has to offer.

Because of this, countless schemes, scams, fiat systems, debt-enslavement programs, frauds, and thefts are able to syphon the energy and time of human beings, leading us nowhere but to our own ruin.

The monetary system we have today operates in this way, with a tiny ruling elite having devised and now controlling an international system of manipulation which gives unlimited power to those who create money without having to produce anything of actual value.

Final Thoughts

It is impossible to understand the conflict, chaos and division in our world without understanding the ways in which human consciousness is limited, corralled and enslaved by these paradigms. At this point in the age of communication, however, it takes a certain willfulness to continue to operate within these five boxes.

“It’s much easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled — such is the nature of confirmation bias and other psychological tools of manipulation. Breaking free of the ancient, historical ‘constant’ of mind control is an ongoing process of waking up out of a state of denial. Spiritual emergence and awakening involves a physiological break from the consensus social agreements of our planetary cultures.” ~ Karlos Kukuburra

4 Warning Signs from Your Intuition

 

 

If you are open and if you are listening, your intuition is always sending  signs and clues so you can move forward in the right direction.

by Tanaaz, guest writer

The right direction is really the direction that is aligned with your soul. It is not a question of good or bad, it is just whatever direction your soul needs to go in.

When you still your mind and listen to that quieter voice within, you will always be guided and you will always know the right next move to make.

Learning to listen to this quiet voice within does take time and practice. But the more you learn how to still the chatter in your head, and the more you trust that you are indeed being guided, the easier it will become.

In fact, there really is no greater or more powerful tool than your intuition. We all have one, we just need to get comfortable in learning how to use it.

While there are exercises you can do to strengthen your intuition, sometimes the hardest part is determining the difference between your intuitive voice and the voice of your ego.

Most of us have a very strong and powerful mind that is constantly chatting and offering its opinion, and sometimes this can get in the way of being able to accurately determine our intuition.

To help you with the process, here are 4 common warning signs that usually arise when your intuition is getting overthrown by your ego.

If you ever find yourself experiencing these warning signs, the message is always — Stop and Listen.

Here are the 4 warning signs you need to watch out for:

1. Indecision

Sometimes it can be hard to decide whether to go left or right, choose pizza or pasta, or to hold on or let go. Making decisions, big or small is definitely something your intuition can help you with.

If you find yourself going around in circles about whether or not to do something, or if you are struggling to make a decision, you need to trust that this is your intuition talking to you.

As I always say to myself — when you are met with indecision you must listen to your intuition!

Often when you are struggling to decide something, or when you feel a resistance to making a decision, it could be a warning sign from your intuition that either you have not yet got all the facts, or that something is off about one of your choices.

When you are indecisive, the best thing to do is pause and wait it out. You can also ask for a sign or meditate quietly to help you see things clearly.

If you can’t wait it out, follow which option feels the best, not which one sounds the best. Our intuition doesn’t always play by the rules of logic, so sometimes you just have to learn to trust your feelings.

2. Seeking Approval

While it is fine to ask someone for their opinion or even for their advice, if you find yourself reaching out to everyone you know this could also be a red flag.

When you find yourself asking for everyone’s opinion, more often than not you are most likely looking for validation, or you are ignoring what you already know to be true deep down inside.

When your intuition sends you a message that is hard to hear, sometimes it can be tempting to keep seeking advice and opinions from others in order to shake off or validate what we already know to be true.

If you find yourself seeking the opinion and approval from everyone around you, stop and check in with yourself. Connect with your inner voice and don’t be afraid to hear the truth.

Remember, this is your life and only you know what is best.

3. Feeling Drained or Zapped

Feeling drained or depleted is another warning sign from your intuition. This usually happens when you are surrounding yourself with the wrong people, but it can also happen when you enter a room or walk down a particular street.

If you ever find yourself feeling zapped, especially if this feeling comes on suddenly, it is definitely a sign that you need to check in and ask your intuition for guidance.

The tricky thing with this situation is that it can hard to hear your intuition when you are feeling zapped, so call on your angels and visualize a protective white light all around you.

Once you have removed yourself from the space or stopped hanging around the person, usually your energy levels will recharge quickly.

4. Something’s Just Off

The most common warning sign from your intuition is a general feeling of “offness”. When you feel off about something or if you feel something is not right, this could definitely be your intuition shining through and trying to warn you.

If you feel off about something, breathe deeply and ask your intuition to show you the next best step.

Sometimes stress or anxiety can also get in the way here and make us believe that things are worse than they seem, but if your feelings of “offness” are also met with any other warning signs like indecision or feeling zapped definitely pay attention.

You may need to take a few deep breaths or meditate here to help clear your mind and check in with yourself about what could be going on.

Hopefully these 4 warning signs help you to understand how your intuition is always guiding and protecting you.

8 Big Lies History Books Tell About Native Americans

8. Columbus NEVER landed in the Upper 48 — Ever


Every year across the country countless elementary school students recite: “In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue” and many perform a play about him discovering Indians in America.

The thing is Columbus never landed in what would become the United States, he actually landed in the Caribbean.


7. Basically Everything About Pocahontas

Pocahontas was about 8 years old when John Smith arrived, and was later married to another young Indian warrior. She also had a child that was given away before she married John Rolfe.

Sorry Disney, and many incorrectly written textbooks, Pocahontas never fell in love with John Smith. According to tribal oral histories as well as The True Story of Pocahontas by members of the Mattaponi Tribe, Pocahontas’ original young Native husband was killed and Pocahontas’ newborn was given to relatives before she was forced into captivity at about 15 or 16 years of age.

6. The First Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving was named after an entire tribe’s massacre—not a peaceful meal between pilgrims and Indians.

In 1621, Wampanoag Indians investigated gun and cannon fire at a Pilgrim settlement to see them celebrating a successful harvest. The Indians — all male warriors, were fed as a gesture of peace. The act was not repeated annually.

In 1636, when a murdered man was discovered in a boat in Plymouth, English Major John Mason collected his soldiers and killed and burned down the wigwams of all the neighboring Pequot Indians who were blamed for the murder.

The following day, Plymouth Governor William Bradford applauded the massacre of the 400 Indians, including the women and children. 

The Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, William Newell, proclaimed: 

“From that day forth, shall be a day of celebration and thanks giving for subduing the Pequots.”

For the next 100 years, every Thanksgiving Day ordained by a governor was in honor of the bloody victory, thanking God that the battle had been won.

5. What is a Redskin?

“It was only five generations ago that a white man could get money for one of my grandfather’s scalps,” wrote 1491’s comedian Dallas Goldtooth on Facebook. “At this time… it was ‘Redskin’ that was used to describe us.”


In his post, Goldtooth also included a newspaper clipping from after the U.S. Dakota Wars of 1862:

“The state reward for dead Indians has been increased to $200 for every red-skin sent to Purgatory.”

4. Lincoln Ordered a Mass Execution

In the fall of 1862, Native tribes in Minnesota waged war on white settlers out of frustration from starvation, mistreatment and harsh conditions. After soldiers captured over 300 Indians, President Abraham Lincoln approved the largest mass execution in U.S. history on 38 Dakota men.


On the day of their hanging, an estimated 4,000 spectators watched them hung. Their bodies were later taken and used as medical cadavers.

3. Hitler Studied Reservations

There are many accounts of the Nazis and Hitler studying Indian reservations for guidance in planning encampments for the Jewish. Perhaps Lia Mandelbaum says it best in her article found in the Jewish Journal entitled “Hitler’s Inspiration and Guide: The Native American Holocaust.”

From 1863 to 1868, the U.S. military persecuted and imprisoned 9,500 Navajo (the Diné) and 500 Mescalero Apache (the N’de). Living under armed guards, in holes in the ground, with extremely scarce rations, it is no wonder that more than 3,500 Navajo and Mescalero Apache men, women, and children died while in the concentration camp.

During the film I learned about something that shook me to my core that I had not heard before. I learned that the genocidal mentality and actions of the U.S. policy makers would find similar expression years later when the Nazis, under Hitler, studied the plans of Bosque Redondo to design the concentration camps for Jews.

2. There Are 566 Federally Recognized Tribes in the U.S.

When I was a student in high school, I learned that George Washington saw Indians in Virginia and possibly heard once or twice about the Cherokee Trail of Tears. 

But In 18 years of public school (and a few of private Catholic School)—not once did I learn about the multitude of tribes, languages or cultures involved in this country. NOT ONCE.

1. Unwritten History of African Americans and Natives

Dr. Arica L. Coleman is the assistant professor of Black American Studies at the University of Delaware. She is African American and Native American (Rappahannock). Due to her ancestry, she has done a lot of thinking about the relations and interactions of blacks, Indians and whites on the East Coast, primarily in Virginia.


According to Coleman, who turned her Ph.D. dissertation into a book titled That the Blood Stay Pure, there was Indian slavery in Virginia.

“The first slaves in the Americas were Native American and this business that the Native Americans died off as a result of disease and war [is inaccurate]—those were not the only reasons for their demise, there was the Indian slave trade, which is something we do not discuss a lot,” she writes.

Coleman also writes about Walter Plecker, a man who once worked as the first registrar of Virginia’s Bureau of Vital Records. A man who literally changed races in Virginia’s birth records. His actions have been coined as “pencil genocide.”

Similarly, William Loren Katz, the author of Black Indians has written how entire cities of blacks and Indians came together as a strong force against European settlers including huge factions of black Seminoles who created nearly impenetrable forces against those soldiers foolish enough to try and break into Florida, and suffered miserable defeats over several years.
