“…… Should I use Doctors and Drugs to Heal Me or Spiritual Methods?

"Dear Kryon, I have heard that you should stay natural and not use the science on the planet for healing. It does not honor God to go to a doctor. After all, don't you say that we can heal with our minds? So why should we ever go to a doctor if we can do it ourselves? Not only that, my doctor isn't enlightened, so he has no idea about my innate or my spiritual body needs. What should I do?"

First, Human Being, why do you wish to put so many things in boxes? You continue to want a yes and no answer for complex situations due to your 3D, linear outlook on almost everything. Learn to think out of the 3D box! Look at the heading of this section [above]. It asks which one should you do. It already assumes you can't do both because they seem dichotomous.

Let's use some spiritual logic: Here is a hypothetical answer, "Don't go to a doctor, for you can heal everything with your mind." So now I will ask: How many of you can do that in this room right now? How many readers can do that with efficiency right now? All of you are old souls, but are you really ready to do that? Do you know how? Do you have really good results with it? Can you rid disease and chemical imbalance with your mind right now?

I'm going to give you a truth, whether you choose to see it or not. You're not ready for that! You are not yet prepared to take on the task of full healing using your spiritual tools. Lemurians could do that, because Pleiadians taught them how! It's one of the promises of God, that there'll come a day when your DNA works that efficiently and you will be able to walk away from drug chemistry and the medical industry forever, for you'll have the creator's energy working at 100 percent, something you saw within the great masters who walked the earth.

This will be possible within the ascended earth that you are looking forward to, dear one. Have you seen the news lately? Look out the window. Is that where you are now? We are telling you that the energy is going in that direction, but you are not there yet.

Let those who feel that they can heal themselves begin the process of learning how. Many will be appreciative of the fact that you have some of the gifts for this now. Let the process begin, but don't think for a moment that you have arrived at a place where every health issue can be healed with your own power. You are students of a grand process that eventually will be yours if you wish to begin the quantum process of talking to your cells. Some will be good at this, and some will just be planting the seeds of it.

Now, I would like to tell you how Spirit works and the potentials of what's going to happen in the next few years. We're going to give the doctors of the planet new inventions and new science. These will be major discoveries about the Human body and of the quantum attributes therein.

Look at what has already happened, for some of this science has already been given to you and you are actually using it. Imagine a science that would allow the heart to be transplanted because the one you have is failing. Of course! It's an operation done many times a month on this planet. That information came from the creator, did you realize that? It didn't drop off the shelf of some dark energy library to be used in evil ways.

So, if you need a new heart, Lightworker, should you go to the doctor or create one with your mind? Until you feel comfortable that you can replace your heart with a new one by yourself, then you might consider using the God-given information that is in the hands of the surgeon. For it will save your life, and create a situation where you stay and continue to send your light to the earth! Do you see what we're saying?

You can also alter that which is medicine [drugs] and begin a process that is spectacular in its design, but not very 3D. I challenge you to begin to use what I would call the homeopathic principle with major drugs. If some of you are taking major drugs in order to alter your chemistry so that you can live better and longer, you might feel you have no choice. "Well, this is keeping me alive," you might say. "I don't yet have the ability to do this with my consciousness, so I take the drugs."

In this new energy, there is something else that you can try if you are in this category. Do the following with safety, intelligence, common sense and logic. Here is the challenge: The principle of homeopathy is that an almost invisible tincture of a substance is ingested and is seen by your innate. Innate "sees" what you are trying to do and then adjusts the body's chemistry in response. Therefore, you might say that you are sending the body a "signal for balance." The actual tincture is not large enough to affect anything chemically - yet it works!

The body [innate] sees what you're trying to do and then cooperates. In a sense, you might say the body is healing itself because you were able to give it instructions through the homeopathic substance of what to do. So, why not do it with a major drug? Start reducing the dosage and start talking to your cells, and see what happens. If you're not successful, then stop the reduction. However, to your own amazement, you may often be successful over time.

You might be able to take the dosage that you're used to and cut it to at least a quarter of what it was. It is the homeopathy principle and it allows you to keep the purpose of the drug, but reduce it to a fraction of a common 3D dosage. You're still taking it internally, but now it's also signaling in addition to working chemically. The signal is sent, the body cooperates, and you reduce the chance of side effects.

You can't put things in boxes of yes or no when it comes to the grand system of Spirit. You can instead use spiritual logic and see the things that God has given you on the planet within the inventions and processes. Have an operation, save your life, and stand and say, "Thank you, God, for this and for my being born where these things are possible." It's a complicated subject, is it not? Each of you is so different! You'll know what to do, dear one. Never stress over that decision, because your innate will tell you what is appropriate for you if you're willing to listen. ….”

China becomes main supplier of herbal medicines to Japan, South Korea

Want China Times, Staff Reporter 2013-12-30

While China is facing obstacles in the Chinese herbal medicine market at home and abroad, countries including Japan, South Korea and the United States are importing considerable amounts of raw Chinese herbal ingredients and using them to manufacture Chinese patent medicines to earn sizeable profits.

More than 200 Chinese patented medicines will have to be pulled off the shelves in the United Kingdom on April 30, 2014 for their failure to register in Europe in accordance with regulations set by the European Union.

Non-governmental organization Greenpeace released a report earlier in which Chinese herbal medicines that were produced and sold by China's noted herbal brands in seven countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom, were found to contain pesticide residues.

Chinese herbal suppliers based in China did not respond effectively to the restrictions imposed in the overseas market to ease the market's trust crisis towards China's herbal medicines, according to the Chinese-language China Business.

In the meantime, foreign suppliers in South Korea, Japan and the United States have cornered 90% of international Chinese patent medicine market. These countries are buying raw materials from China and processing them into tablets or capsules.

The newspaper reported that two-thirds of the materials for Chinese patent medicines in Japan are imported from China.

In addition to China, Japan is the world's largest manufacturer and consumer of Chinese herbal medicines, boasting at least 200 brand vendors. The prescription Chinese herbal drugs market has grown by 15% a year and its annual sales have touched US$1.5 billion.

Tsumura & Co, Japan's largest Chinese patent medicine producer, is the largest competitor against China as far as the internationalization of the traditional medicine is concerned.

The Japanese firm established Shanghai Tsumura Pharmaceuticals in 2001 and filed applications of approval with the US Food and Drug Administration in 2005, which affirmed its position not only in the Japanese domestic market but also in the US market.

Eighty percent of Tsumura's herbal medicines are imported from China as the company builds over 70 herb growing bases that meet Good Agricultural Practice (GAP) regulations.

The Chinese market, on the other hand, trails far behind Tsumura's distribution. Tong Ren Tang, a China-based pharmaceutical company, only has eight GAP bases in the country even though it is the Chinese medicine pharmaceutical company with the highest number of bases in the country.

A market researcher stated that China's herbal medicine industry has to set up safety standard to ensure the quality of herbs by setting up more bases that meet GAP regulations.

New Health Care Scheme Will Boost People’s Welfare: SBY

Bogor, West Java. The new national health scheme known as the Social Security Organizing Body (BPJS), which will come into effect on Jan. 1, will not only boost the welfare of the nation but also enhance social justice, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said on Monday.

“The BPJS will make our development more just, especially for our less fortunate brothers and sisters,” Yudhoyono said while leading a limited cabinet meeting on people’s welfare in Bogor.

During the meeting, which was also attended by Vice President Boediono, Yudhoynono checked the preparation and readiness of the health care scheme.

“Just see this as a final check before the implementation of the National Social Security Scheme [SJSN] starting on January 1, 2014. This is an important historical milestone because it will change the face and the level of the welfare of the Indonesian people,” he said.

The president, however, admitted that there was still much to be done to improve the scheme, although he also believed that such issues could be dealt with after its implementation.

“There are still challenges and problems to overcome and manage,” he said.

Officials have said that the new health care system will see some 172.84 million Indonesians joining.

The government is  aiming for every Indonesian to be covered under the BPJS by Jan. 1, 2019.

Blazing cannabis trail, US states eye tourism surge

Los Angeles — Marijuana users in Colorado and Washington are counting down the hours before the western US states become the first to legalize recreational pot shops on January 1.

Blazing a trail they hope will be followed in other parts of the United States, cannabis growers and others are also rubbing their hands, while tax collectors are eyeing the revenue the newly-legalized trade will generate.

Enterprising companies are even offering marijuana tours to cash in on tourists expected to be attracted to a Netherlands-style pot culture -- including in Colorado's famous ski resorts.

"Just the novelty alone is bringing people from everywhere," said Adam Raleigh of cannabis supplier Telluride Bud Co.

"I have people driving in from Texas, Arizona, Utah... to be a part of history.

"Over the last month I have received somewhere between four to six emails a day and five to 10 phone calls a day asking all about the law and when should people plan their ski trip to go along with cannabis," he added.

Medical marijuana is already legal and regulated in 19 US states, and has been allowed in some cases for the past 20 years. And in most of them, private consumption of cannabis is not classified as a crime.

But Colorado and Washington are creating a recreational market in which local authorities will oversee growing, distribution and marketing -- all of it legal -- for people to get high just for the fun of it.

The market is huge: from $1.4 billion in medical marijuana in 2013 it will grow by 64 percent to $2.34 billion in 2014 with recreational pot added in Colorado and Washington, according to Arcview Market Research, which tracks and publishes data on the cannabis industry.

Both states legalized recreational consumption of marijuana in referendums in November last year, but new rules coming into force on January 1 allow cannabis shops.

In Colorado, famous for its Rocky Mountain ski resorts, officials this week issued 348 retail marijuana licenses including for small shops which from January 1 can sell up to 28 grams of pot to people aged 21 or older.

Washington state authorities have received applications for 3,746 marijuana business licenses, including 867 retail licenses, according to The Seattle Times newspaper, which urged caution in an editorial.

"Legalization of marijuana (is) a seismic change in drug-control policy, perhaps the biggest since the end of alcohol prohibition. Supporters and skeptics need to take a deep breath," it said.

Colorado's branch of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) said everyone will benefit.

"It will mean jobs, tax revenue for the state and local jurisdictions, increased tourism, and a developing progressive new industry in Colorado," NORML attorney Rachel Gillette told AFP.

"It will also have an impact in that marijuana sales will be brought out of the shadows and the black market," she added.

Michael Elliott, head of the Medical Marijuana Industry Group, noted that Colorado has licensed medical marijuana businesses since 2010, but said the influx of tourists for recreational use of pot could lead to shortages.

"It's tough to know whether supply will meet demand, mainly because it's tough to know the impact of tourism on this new market," he said.

"It looks like demand will exceed supply, so I anticipate that prices in Colorado will go up ... But as time goes on, more businesses will open meaning there will be more supply," he added.

Telluride Bud Co's Raleigh compared decriminalizing pot shops to legalizing same-sex weddings, which are now allowed in more than a third of US states.

"Give it six months, and when other states see that the sky didn't fall and the revenue we are producing, I believe this will spread just like gay marriage," he said. "You just can't stop the will of the people."

Argentina court grants abortion for teen rape victim

Buenos Aires — A court in Argentina ruled Friday that a 14-year old rape victim could have an abortion, overturning a lower court decision barring the girl from seeking the procedure which had triggered outrage.

The teenage girl discovered early last month that she was pregnant after being raped by her mother's partner.

The teen and her mother, who live in the city of Salta, one of the most conservative in Argentina, sought an abortion at an area hospital.

But a family court judge in a December 17 ruling denied her petition to terminate her pregnancy, instead ordering the girl to give birth and surrender the baby for adoption.

The lower court decision had provoked an outcry by women's groups which maintained that the judge had exceeded his authority.

Judge Victor Soria ruled that the right to life of the unborn child trumped the rights of the teen -- but Salta's Supreme Court on Friday overturned that decision.

Abortion for the most part is illegal in Argentina. But there are exceptions, including in the case of rape, or when the life of the mother is at risk.

A federal Supreme Court last year issued a ruling that rape victims could not be punished for terminating a pregnancy, and no longer would need a court's permission to get an abortion.

The court ruled that a woman's sworn statement at the doctor's office that she had been impregnated following a sexual assault would be sufficient.

But the high court ruling has not always been observed, with some conservative localities -- like Salta, located some 1500 km (932 miles) from Buenos Aires -- still requiring that rape victims seek court permission for an abortion, and in some cases refusing to grant it.

Abortion rights groups have been outraged by the girl's case.

"When it comes to a woman's body and her authority over her own body, what we have is a male-dominated, patriarchal majority in society and the Catholic Church," said Mabel Gabarra, with the national campain for free and legal abortion.

Though Argentina has its first woman elected president, Cristina Kirchner -- and has been progressive in social policies such as legal same-sex marriage and transgender rights recognition -- abortion is still a social taboo.

Question: Dear Kryon, thank you for the many communications you have given. They have been enlightening in many ways. I hope this is not a rude question, but it is a subject that I have not seen addressed in the collection of Questions and Answers. I want to know: What is the morality of stopping someone's new life in the physical plane, by abortion? And what is the karma to the person who helps to accomplish an abortion? I think it will depend on when a Human life begins. When life begins is a moment that is very important to those who oppose abortion and those who say it is allowable.

Do you have a decisive response to guide those who receive your words?

Answer: [from Lee Carroll] We have tried to "paint" Kryon into a corner on this many times, since it really is an important issue in our society. Kryon says this: "Human life actually begins when the intent of the entities involved in the planning session is to create it." It's not a biological answer, and it won't please either side.

This places it far before any kind of biological morality decision. Kryon has said that there is no judgement in the choice of Humans... including this one. When it occurs, there is also no horrible karmic payback. But there IS energy created that affects everyone around the event. Sometimes these lives come and go to create lessons for those involved, then these terminated lives return almost immediately, often within the next pregnancy (sometimes changing gender). If there is no next pregnancy, often it's in a very close family group.

God is not in a vacuum concerning these things, and often they are set-ups, and are executed with the agreement of all parties in advance. This is far different than our society wishes to believe. They want to paint a black and white answer to when life occurs, and set rules on what you can and cannot do with it. Instead, Kryon's answer gives honor and validity to the fact that you are not here by accident, and the things that take place in your lives are not random. Not to mention the fact that your free choice is the free choice of God (since you are a piece of God).

So we leave the biological cultural decisions for those who wish to make them, but we have heard the spiritual answers many times... that these things are far more than they appear, and are all part of our spiritual setups, and they are honored.

"... I want to define life for you - not biological life, but spiritual life. So for all those intellectuals, just hold on, for many won't like this. Spiritual life, as measured by Spirit, is when a Human has free choice. When is that? It's when they take their first breath. Not in utero. There will be those who will say, "That's wrong, that's wrong. The soul in the woman's body is alive!" Just wait. I'm talking about spiritually. That which Spirit sees, and it's when you come from the other side of the veil and take your first breath.

A child with the mother has no free choice. That child is linked to the choice of the mother until it is born. It is, indeed, a soul in preparation for free choice, and there are many attributes that are spiritual that we have discussed before about how that soul reacts. But now I'm discussing life with polarity [duality], free choice.

But let's discuss that "child inside" for a moment, for there is a process I want you to know about. I want to talk about 240 days into the pregnancy. At about that time, the child has perfect DNA. It hasn't taken its first breath. The DNA hasn't measured the energy of the planet yet, since it is contained. Did you realize that? Inside the womb is a perfect child. The child's DNA has all the attributes of the Akash and also the parent, but it's different in a way you have not been told. The DNA is 100% as designed.

The quantum instructions within the DNA are all talking to the biology of the child,, getting ready for the first breath. ..."

Fox meat found at Jinan Walmart — it was supposed to be donkey

Want China Times, Staff Reporter 2013-12-25

Fox meat was found in a product that supposedly contained only donkey meat and beef at a Walmart in Jinan, capital of east China's Shandong province, reports the Guangzhou-based Yangcheng Evening News.

A customer surnamed Wang said he felt something was wrong with the taste and color of the meat he had purchased. He sent the product for examination and the result showed it contained fox meat instead of donkey meat as labeled. Wang said his rights as a consumer had been infringed upon and demanded compensation of ten times the retail price of the product.

Walmart reportedly refused Wang's request and said they felt it was suspicious that Wang bought 1,600 packages of the product. They suspect that he intentionally bought up the product in order to extort money from the chain. The company that manufactures the product refuted Wang's accusations and said that they would accept an independent inspection.

The store later responded on Dec. 23 saying that they had removed the product from shelves and will send it for testing. A representative of the store said they can only review certificates of manufacture of the products sold in their store, adding that they sell more than 10,000 products in store, and are not able to examine the ingredients of every product.

A reporter from the Yangcheng Evening News asked at several testing centers and found it usually costs more than 2,000 yuan (US$329) to test the genetic ingredients of animal products. There are few centers that provide this kind of service as the cost is high.

Fox meat is cheap due to its odor, said a fox farmer surnamed Xue. "A piece of fox skin is worth more than 1,000 yuan (US$165), while a kilo of fox meat is worth only 4-6 yuan (US$0.65-$1)," Xue stated.

Children's footwear in Taiwan found to contain endocrine disruptors

Six out of 19 children's footwear samples in Taiwan recently tested positive for containing endocrine-disrupting chemicals at levels 100 times greater than the maximum levels permitted, while two contained carcinogens.

The tests were carried out by the Consumers' Foundation and the Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection (BSMI) under the Ministry of Economic Affairs, on 19 samples of childrens' shoes priced between NT$190 (US$6.32) and NT$942 (US$31.40).

The results show that 10 samples were substandard, representing a failure rate of 53%. Meanwhile, seven samples were not in compliance with regulations and six were mislabeled.

Six samples were found to contain eight types of phthalate-based plasticizers and compounds at levels 100 times greater than the maximum permissible levels.

Phthalate is a type of environmental hormone that can cause male feminization and may increase the risk of developing breast cancer in women. It can also affect infant growth.

Higher-than-allowed levels of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were also found in the products. PAH is considered a carcinogenic that can cause skin, lung, gastric and liver cancer.

The local manufacturers will face fines ranging from NT$20,000-200,000 (US$670-6,700) if they fail to make improvements, the inspection authorities said.

Posts on McDonald's employee site bash fast food

CNBC , Katie Little, News Associate, 23 Dec 2013

CNBC's Michelle Caruso-Cabrera and Bob Pisani share their opinions
on posts on McDonald's employee website which "bashes" fast food.

Oops, it happened again.

McDonald's employee resources website is giving out even more odd advice for workers. This time, it's about the industry it helped make ubiquitous—fast food.

"Fast foods are quick, reasonably priced, and readily available alternatives to home cooking. While convenient and economical for a busy lifestyle, fast foods are typically high in calories, fat, saturated fat, sugar, and salt and may put people at risk for becoming overweight," reads one post on the site, which includes a picture of a hamburger and fries, two items that the fast-food giant specializes in selling.

Another post labels a meal with a cheeseburger and fries as the "unhealthy choice" and one with a submarine sandwich and salad as the "healthier choice," noting that it's more of a challenge to eat healthy when visiting a fast-food place.

A separate post writes "it is hard to eat a healthy diet when you eat at fast-food restaurants often," adding that large portions make it easy to overeat.

The site also advises people to limit how many fries they eat.

"In general, people with high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease must be very careful about choosing fast food because of its high fat, salt, and sugar levels," the post said, adding that items from fast-food places are "almost always high" in calories, fat, sugar and salt.

The posts appear to be content provided by a third-party vendor.

McDonald's defended the posting in a statement issued Monday afternoon.

"Portions of this website continue to be taken entirelyout of context," McDonald's statement said. "This website provides useful information from respected third-parties about many topics, among them health and wellness. It also includes information from experts about healthy eating and making balanced choices. McDonald's agrees with this advice."

The company also noted that it has added healthier menu options in recent years, including "oatmeal, grilled chicken, egg whites and real-fruit smoothies."

It was the latest in a series of gaffes involving the site.

Last month, the company detailed tipping advice for workers, many of whom make around minimum wage. It listed pricey suggestions for tipping au pairs, personal fitness trainers and pool cleaners from etiquette maven Emily Post—advice it removed after a CNBC inquiry. McDonald's told CNBC the post was third-party material and said it would "continue to review the resource and will ask the vendor to make changes as needed."

Although the McResource Line is nominally a site for employees, it is accessible via a registration process that does not actually verify employee credentials, meaning anyone can register for it by providing a username and email address and selecting a McDonald's region.

This advice is available on McDonald's site at a time when the fast-food giant has been working hard to distance itself from fast-food's reputation as bad for you, adding more fruits and vegetables and fat-free chocolate milk.

At its annual shareholder meeting in late May, McDonald's CEO Don Thompson defended his company's food, saying, "We don't sell junk food."

McDonald's also saw backlash after it advised employees to get out of holiday debt by returning unopened purchases and after it published a budget guide that included no money for heat and $20 a month for health care.

Kryon Q&A

(39) Question: Dear Kryon: I've noticed how many children are developing severe allergies to foods (my daughter included). When I've researched this, it seems that most of the allergies are essentially to seeds, grains, legumes, eggs, and dairy. I've noticed that these foods all hold the potential for life, or in the case of dairy, are essentially used to sustain the first stages of life in an animal's baby. My feeling is that because we're not releasing the life force within these foods (that is, sprouting, etc.), they're becoming harmful to us. I would like your impressions of this.

Answer: For thousands of years, these foods have worked for humanity. In these cases you speak about, the main culprit continues to be the way in which these foods are collected and processed. You won't find these allergies in third-world countries, and you won't find them within the children who work on farms, where they eat the foods directly. There will eventually have to come a day when you relax some of your efficiency attributes and go back to the way food was meant to be collected and eaten. And yes... there are effects from how the dairy animals are treated, too. Going back to some basics will help, and so will eliminating some of the procedures that supposedly create a "safer food." These procedures have instead made them begin to look like foreign food to the Human body.

(15) Question: Dear Kryon, please help us understand the increase of allergies. What can we do to heal this phenomenon?

Answer: Reduce the steps in your food chain, which are adding chemistry to fresh food.

(13) Question: Dear Kryon, I’m very concerned about the obesity epidemic, particularly in the U.S. Around me I see people getting bigger and more unhealthy, all for the sake of convenience and saving time. You mentioned at one point a famine, and I suspect the famine won’t be from a lack of food, but from an abundance of food that has no nutritional value.

I wonder how we can honor the Earth by eating nothing that comes straight from it? Of course this involves caring for the lands and oceans as part of a bigger issue and making that connection, too. Is this what it will finally take for people to switch to a healthier way of living?

Its amazing how detached people are from the food they eat. We don’t even honor our digestive processes, the way we combine foods. Whatever happened to nutrition? Atkins is no solution; there is no balance in it. Gastric bypass is all about quantity reduction, not quality increase. When will people make the direct connection between what/how they eat and their health? Is a change in diet and lifestyle part of the upcoming shift?

Answer: The shift has little to do with it. It’s a culture-specific problem and has to do with consciousness of health. Go study the cultures on your planet that have very few overweight Humans. Start with the Japanese. They have some of the same western work ethics and live in very sophisticated industrial-based environments. Yet they aren’t overweight. It’s about the core food groups and the combination of them.

“The Mysterious Innate” - (a message from Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

Kryon.com, Aug 31, 2013

This live channelling was Given in the Washington DC area.

Lee Carroll
To help the reader, this channelling has been revisited [by Lee and Kryon] to provide even clearer understanding. Often what happens live has implied energy within it, which carries a kind of communication that the printed page does not. So enjoy this enhanced message given in Gaithersburg in 2013.

Greetings, dear ones, I am Kryon of Magnetic Service. My partner steps aside, but he's still connected. We have said it before: this process called channelling, it is not a takeover. Channelling is a meld with permission, an agreement with the consciousness of the Human Being, along with his own Higher-Self. This meld agreement is not hard to make as long as the reality box of belief and tradition allows for it. If you have been taught that this process is not appropriate, then it's difficult to channel. So a great deal of my partner's ability to channel is that he knows that it is real and feels the peace about it.

Channelling requires training and practice so that it slowly becomes comfortable. It's a beautiful "place" where the Human Being can sit and just "be" for the few moments as the information is delivered without the intellect involved. My partner becomes a translator. He takes nonlinear, quantum information from my side of the veil and creates a linear stream into his cultural language. This has taken him years. It's a learned process.

The filters that the Human Being has in his mind are ones that are developed by the box of his tradition and upbringing. This becomes his "way of life" and then has to be set aside for the channelled message to become succinct and as complete as possible. These messages must be delivered in a way that will make sense to Humans, as much as possible, without Human bias. Dear ones, as you listen to these things, they may not all make sense. This is why we give the option to listen to these messages later, to be transcribed so you could sit with them and ponder them, so that you could link them with other bits of information and understand how they are connected.

The Lesson Begins

As I begin this lesson, I want to remind you why we're giving it, for we have never discussed these things in this completeness, so it is time to lay the foundation or the groundwork of the future. The best way to do this is to give an exposure of how things work inside you. As we expose these things, we use language that you're not used to and concepts that you haven't really worked with before. We're aware of this, but it has to start where it has to start, and this must be respectful for the variety of consciousness here. The many phases of learning that you are on have great variety, for some of you have been doing this kind of work for as long as you can remember, but others of you are just now awakening to the potentials of who you are. Regardless, we give the story and the teaching as though all of you were on board with it. It is appropriate for the day.

There are esoteric processes within the Human body that are very difficult to explain. Recently, we gave you several of them and how they work. We started talking about synchronicity and how it works with the Human body. We discussed Gaia, guides and energies on the other side of the veil. We've also given you a lecture on the elusive Akash. How does it talk to the cells of your body? Is it in your brain or is it not? What does it say? You can hear these Kryon messages in the past, because my partner records them all.

So now it's time to talk to you about conceptual belief systems and how they are starting to work in your favor, and how consciousness is becoming less linear. All of these things would seem to be concepts that are high minded, but some of you are using these right now. There is one in particular which we have saved until now, because it is difficult to explain. It is what you call Innate. There will be revelations today about how it works, which we have not said before or explained before.

A Brief Review of the Nine Attributes of the Human

There is a full esoteric system that we have channelled to you in the past called The Nine Attributes of the Human Being. These attributes interrelate and work together in a circle, and I want my partner to teach them in the near future. I want him to develop this into at least three parts of training so that humanity can put them together and see how they are related. This, in order to understand yourselves better. The nine attributes, as we have channelled them, are three groups of three. This is not that difficult to conceive of, but the difficulty starts when you try to understand how they relate to each other, what they might mean to you, how they are connected today, and how they will be tomorrow. There are nine of them. We told you that three of the attributes, one in each group of three, have the same name - the Higher-Self. We identified the groups as the Human Corporeal Group, the Soul Group and the Support Group. The Higher-Self was in each one of those. But the one we talk about today is squarely in what we would call the Human Corporeal Group and, like so many of the others, there's more to it than it seems. It is called Innate.


The word innate is part of Human consciousness. All of you have this at the corporeal level and we are going to discuss that today in a way we've never discussed before. We will be telling you only a little bit about it, but hopefully enough to tweak your interest and make you understand that there is more to you than you think - much more.

Innate has been described in the past as the smart part of your cells. Now, that might indicate that there's also a non-smart part, but let us say that it's a more ignorant part, and believe it or not, that ignorant part is your brain. Now the brain perceives many things and it's a most excellent calculator. It's the best memory and relational computational instrument on the earth today. Everything that you have experienced is in your brain. It tempers how you behave, what you do, how you act, what you believe, and how you perceive things. But let me tell you where it falls short. It doesn't know anything about what's going on within your cells or your emotional body. It may send signals to operate your body, but it is blind to what happens after that. It is also easily confused.

Your Brain is Not "In The Loop"

You can intellectualize this for a very long time, yet you will never find out from your brain how your cells are doing. Do you have an allergy to something that your body has not experienced yet? Perhaps it is a food you have never tasted or a chemical you have not seen. How would you know? As you begin to eat the food, or ingest the chemical, shouldn't the brain yell, "Don't do that! You are allergic to it! You will pay the price!" But it does not. It is not connected to cellular structure. But the innate is.

The innate is the smart corporeal body. It knows everything about your overall system. It actually is as smart as your brain, but in a different way. So, what can a Human Being do to find out if he/she is allergic to something? Let's say that is you, so you can ask your brain, but it has no idea. So instead, you place the food or chemistry in your hand and muscle-test it. That is called kinesiology, a big word for something very simple. Muscle-testing is using the body's innate to give you a "yes or no" signal about something it knows about, but that your brain does not.
So in the process of kinesiology, do you understand that you have acknowledged that there is a part of your body system that knows more than your brain? Indeed, this is a process that has been used for centuries, and it's very accurate.

This innate knows a lot more than what you're allergic to, my friend. It is also tuned in completely to the quantum parts of your DNA that know everything about your spiritual and cellular evolvement. Innate handshakes with your Higher-Self at all the three Human group levels, and that is difficult to describe. If you put this information in a circle chart, you can draw the lines between the groups and you'd see what I mean. It's your smart body, and it's connected to everything.

Let me ask you a question, dear one: Don't you find it odd that there are certain kinds of diseases that can lurk within your cells, that can attack you, yet you only know it through your discomfort or through your death! What kind of brain do you have that would not tell you about this? You never have the signal through your brain about any of it except discomfort and pain! But innate knows about it the moment it happens. Innate knows when it entered your body. As your white blood cells go to the places they need to fight, your entire immune system goes into alert! Yet you have no idea about it, since your brain is just doing what it always does - it computes and remembers. But, in this case, it does a very poor job helping you survive.

About Innate

What is innate? Where is it? This is difficult to explain. We told, you dear Human Being, that the elusive Akash information is not in your brain either. You cannot go to your brain to find out who you used to be in a past life. The innate is the same. It's not in your brain, but instead it's in every cell of your body and every molecule of your DNA. The difference between innate and the Akash is that innate is on top (a linear concept for you), and it is always broadcasting, always there. If you know how to listen to it and where it is, you can tune in. Muscle-testing is one way of knowing, a very basic way. Some of you also know that innate responds to acupuncture. Did you know that? Your brain does not.

The Merkabah - Innate's Quantum Field

Innate is aware of all things at the cellular level and is broadcasting all the time. It broadcasts so well that it flows into that which you call the Merkabah of the body. Now, the Merkabah is a quantum field around your body that pulses very strongly with esoteric information, including corporeal health. Many have the ability to see and read this field.

A medical intuitive can stand before you in various degrees of success and read the messages from your innate. This intuitive person does not have to muscle-test to know you've got something going on within your cells. They can see it or sense it within the field around your body. Now, you may have thought that a medical intuitive is looking at your liver or your heart, doing some kind of analysis. That's very linear thinking and is not what is happening. That's your box of belief working overtime. Instead, the medical intuitives are sensing the quantum energy within your field that your innate is broadcasting about your health, of what's going on in the chemistry, and of what might be developing inside you. It's different than you thought, isn't it? That's the innate and that's only one of the things that innate does.

Mining the Akash - The Role of Innate

What I'm going to tell next, we have given you before. However, I wish to explain it better in this communication. Your innate is also a governor of what you personally need. Let me explain: Turn a page with me. We have talked in the past about mining the Akash. So let us open that door for a moment. Is it possible, dear one, that you could go into the vast storehouse of the attributes of your past lives and pick out something that you need today? The answer is yes. It's called mining the Akash, and it is a staple of the Kryon teaching. However, the way it's accomplished by the individual Human is really difficult to describe. It's a personal intuitive process. However, one attribute of it that is often misunderstood is that permission from the innate is needed. This is because the innate smart body knows what you need. It is then the governor, or the filter, giving you permission regarding what can be pulled out of your Akash and used. It will say no to frivolous things and yes to the things that will allow you to cure yourself of disease, live longer, and increase the efficiency of your DNA. It's a smart body regulator.

Innate doesn't care how you look. It cares about your health. If you want to go into your Akash and pull out something that you need for survival, it's right there with you. If you want to make clearer skin, it won't respond. Do you see what I mean? It's the governor for mining the Akash. By the way, the Akash is very ready to be used for this. [Kryon wink]

You have earned what you've lived, dear ones, and it's very available. It lies in a quantum soup of lifetime information that is ready to be used. If you have a disease in your body right now, and perhaps you want to mine the Akash in a way that will create healing, you can. Like all nonlinear things, it requires a new, mature consciousness and practice to work. But the body is ready for you to "go get" the cellular structure of a past life that had no disease. The blueprint for this resides within you since you earned it and lived it. The innate is responsible for spontaneous remission! Science has no idea how a Human does this. The innate can help you "go get" the things within your earned Akash and place them into your cellular structure. That's how smart it is! Imagine clearing disease so completely that there is no sign it was ever there? It happens all the time. Imagine being able to drop a chemical dependency overnight? It's exactly the same principle.

Did you ever sit in a meeting and something is said or a feeling can happen, and you get chills? What are they? You might say, "They are chills of validation." Guess where they came from? The innate! The innate has the ability to signal you the truth. The brain does not. In fact, your brain will often get in the way. It's the brain that contains your box of belief. It's the brain that contains the perception of who you are based on experience and memory. It's your 3D survival instrument. But the brain can't give truth. It can only give you what it perceives as the truth, based on logical, processed, computed, synaptic reasoning and only based on your past experience.

Your brain can tell you not to touch the stove because of what happened once before. But it can't give you chills of validation from information it does not have. The intellect wants you to believe that your brain is supreme. However, the brain is only one part of the body system and not a very intuitive part. It is the innate that knows the truth. The innate is connected to the quantum parts of your DNA and, therefore, also knows of your spirituality and the truth of God inside.

The Next Step

One of the attributes of the future Human Being is to build a bridge between your Human consciousness and your innate. This is one of the three things in the cellular parts of the nine attributes lesson, the Human energies part. This needs to be a bridge of new tools so you no longer have to muscle-test. In fact, you can become your own medical intuitive. Doesn't this make sense? So, when a virus or bacteria invades your body - something your brain can't warn you about - you will know it anyway! This bridge will begin to complete the Human Being's evolution and is a logical next step for longer life. I know this makes sense to you. You should be able to sense these things when they occur rather than going to a doctor for tests. Going to a doctor for tests is not a bad thing, but it should validate what you know is happening and not be the discovery of it.

The Second Brain

Innate does so many things for you! Some of you are starting to get a bigger picture of where I'm going with this discussion. Here is a concept that we've not really broached before. We're going to give it a name, but please do not misunderstand it. You only have one word for your intelligent control center, and the word is called brain. So we are going to give you a concept that the innate is your second brain. It doesn't function like your first one at all, but it is smart and it is intelligent and it knows what you need. Sometimes it can even replace a function that your logical brain normally does.

Let me show you what I mean. Here is a puzzle, a conundrum of medicine: When an accident happens that severs your spinal cord completely, it leaves you with no feeling or muscle function from the waist down. This is because the signals from the brain to your muscles are no longer able to be sent. The pathway for those signals is severed. You then spend the rest of your life in a chair, perhaps even being fed by others. But the puzzle it that there are some things within you that continue to function anyway. One of them is your heart. Another is digestion. Many of these things continue to work even though you are told that your brain, the central nervous system, the organ that sends all the signals to make things work, had its signals severed. The conduit where the signals are sent within the spine is broken. So what keeps all these organs below the neck going?

Your heart depends upon signals from the brain to function. It needs the electrical pulses sent from specific parts of the brain, creating a synchronized rhythm in order for the heart to beat. Yet the brain is disconnected and the heart keeps its rhythm. How can that work? Now I'll tell you: The innate takes over and continues the signal. It's always there, for the Merkabah is body-wide, not centralized in one place as your brain is. The organs will continue to function, but the pathway to the muscles are gone. Even reproduction can still happen! The heart keeps going and digestion continues, and all without connection to the brain.

Innate is smart! It's a second brain. Medical science is often puzzled over this, and I just gave you the answer. So innate is the intelligence in your body that is smarter about cellular things than your brain. Now I want to wrap this all up.

What are you supposed to do with all this information? I want you to get in touch with innate. It's the heart connection, dear ones. The Higher-Self, innate and Human consciousness are the three Human energies that need to meld - Human consciousness, Higher-Self and innate.

When DNA starts to work at a higher efficiency, there are bridges that start to be built between these things. You'll start to feel them when you recognize and sense truth. When you start to have discernment and cognize things for what they are, you stop looking around for answers. You are far more self-contained, and your answers are often the same as those around you who have the same discernment engine. All this now comes from within, instead of an outside source.

Many will tell you this is all nonsense. They tell you about God and ask you to believe them. They tell you that you were born dirty, or that there are societies trying to control you, or that everywhere you look there's a conspiracy against you. They generate fear, and the result is Human fear, confusion, separation and even war.

The Smart Innate

What if you could start understanding the truth from the innate within? You would understand that you are a piece of God on this planet, and you can discern what is and what is not happening around you. The Human Being becomes smarter when the two brains come together and you're able then to see your own health situation, to catch things before they get out of hand, and even to sense the truth of God within the beautiful system of your Akash.

We told you this in the Akash discussion earlier. Every single one of you has a different diet based upon what works for you. There is no such thing as an enlightened diet, except the one given by your own discernment. The innate is smart. It works with your Akash and it knows all about your soul aspects. It is connected to your Higher-Self. It knows what diet will work for you based on your immediate past lives. This is in your Akash, and your innate is in touch with it.

Now, as you start to build a bridge to innate, everything starts to change. The questions that you ask in this room (and they're always the same), will not have to be asked: "Dear Kryon, how can (your name goes here) mine my Akash? I (your name goes here) want to go here, I want to know this, I want to know that. How can I (your name goes here) create this and that in our lives?"

Dear one, the day is coming when you will never have to ask these things, any more than you would ask a person on the street how to walk. Someday, when it comes to esoteric things, you won't feel you're in the dark or that there are missing pieces. When innate starts to be present in your consciousness, concepts will start to meld and the missing pieces will start to fill in. You're going to be a lot smarter about who you are, and one of the things that's going to occur is you'll know you're not from here! You will sense it! You're from the great central sun. You're from where I am from, and you'll know that you're eternal! You'll know that you've had more than one life, and it will be something that you know just like innate knows it and not something you intellectualize with the computer in your head.

It's the heart connection, dear ones. Innate is what creates emotion. Let me tell you, dear ones, that innate helps you fall in love. Innate gives you energies that you can't explain. Innate makes you just a little nuts (nobody can explain the "in love" feeling), but innate knows all about it. Innate can change every cell of your body, and it will ring true with information and help for you personally. This will create more discernment and a wise Human. There's nothing like it, and the most important thing is that "truth is truth", and more and more Humans will see what you see. Can you see how innate would serve humanity and how it shakes hands with your Higher-Self and knows about God?

This has been our story for this day - about something in you that is amazing and ready to work for you. Perhaps you may have not known the extent of it or what it was? Perhaps you didn't know how it worked or how important it is? Now you know a little more. Finally, the beautiful part: It's not an entity inside you, dear ones. It's you - the bridge from the corporeal body to the Higher-Self, the smart part of your cells.

And so it is.
