“…… 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. ….”

”God in a Box” – (Kryon Channelling by Lee Carroll)

Kryon.com, March 10, 2019

This live channelling was given in Calary, AB, Canada

Lee Carroll
To help the reader, this channelling has been revisited [by Lee and Kryon] to provide even clearer understanding. Sometime information is even added or condensed. 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 Calgary.

Greetings, dear ones, I am Kryon of Magnetic Service. I would like to continue and expand the subject of "connection," which I started earlier today.

There are so many questions that Humans have about this seemingly intangible idea of a Creator, or God, or of a source that is beyond your imagination, yet that's one that somehow you’re directly connected to. It's also very difficult for you to truly believe that there is an entourage, if you want to call it that, or a group around each of you all of the time. This intangible spiritual group knows your name, and not the name you have now. The name is of a soul group, the name is bigger even than you can imagine, the name itself exists in light, and the name is not an identifier, but rather a descriptor of magnificence. It is patterned and speaks of your soul group in this galaxy that belongs to Earth.

God in a Human Box

If I could summarize all of this, let me again say that "God knows you," and this, dear ones, has to be either fully realized or somehow trained into a Human Being. The reason for this is common and obvious and I will go into this yet again. Humans have the perception that everything around them that exhibits any intelligence will echo a Human’s intelligence. When you have a pet, and of course the pet cannot understand your language, you still talk to them as though they understand everything. You project your humanism and emotion on the animal to communicate, even though the animal has no idea what you’re saying or doing. However, that animal can feel the love that you have since love is universal. Human consciousness is not.

In reference to the creative source, I’ll call this issue the "God in a Box" syndrome, and the box is a Human box that you perceive God exists within. The Human projects everything that is Human nature onto the almighty. God is then portrayed simply as a super Human, but with the same dysfunctions as Humans: anger, disappointment, judgment and punishment. I’ve told you that every civilization on this planet has done the same thing yours has done. I’ve also told you that you are civilization number five. You are also the civilization that would be present during the precession of the equinoxes (2012) and would have the ability to see the shift.

Other Civilizations Before Yours

Other civilizations before yours have gone through similar things. We don’t speak much of that yet because most of humanity doesn’t believe it. You are told that civilization is only 6,000 or 7,000 years old. I have told you that you’ve been here more like 50,000 to 60,000 years. Would it shock you if I told you that some of the inventions you have, the basic ones such as electricity, were present early in your civilization (5,000 years old) but also in the civilizations before yours. The common sense reason is that electricity is easily discoverable. Nature produces it and anyone watching and looking and interested with an inquiring mind can discover how to eventually create it. So you’re not the first, and it leads to things which I’ll mention in just a moment. However, the other civilizations before yours also did the same thing with God in a box.

The Dream of Communication

Communication is interesting with humanity. It has always been paramount with you, staying in touch. Let’s talk only about your current civilization and what happened very early. It's so interesting that you feel you’re so technical right now. Actually, your technology is very high compared to your past. However, your ancestors also had high-tech in their own way. What if I told you that long before the telegraph or the radio or the telephone, you had a system of communication at the speed of light, but only about 20 miles at a time? You may laugh, but it's true! Your ancestors did it. All they had to do was climb a mountain and get smoke signals to the next mountain. That's communication at the speed of light, 20 miles at a time. One mountain group would talk to another that would talk to another that would talk to another. The language was perhaps a little inelegant (not many words), but it was very fast communication. It was needed, figured out, and used for thousands of years.

The continuous dream of inventors has always been "instant communication". In a very early time, if you wanted to send a message to a family member in a town or a village that was far away, the system was to write a note, get on an animal of some kind and ride the animal to the next town. That eventually became the mail. Today you laugh at how slow that might have been, for sometimes you would say “hello” in a letter and three weeks later you’d get a “hello” back. That was as good as it got.

In about the 1700s in your civilization, along came a system of the telegraph (based on electricity) where you could then send messages through code at long distances. One hundred years later, this led to the invention of radio and then the inventions suddenly came quickly and you could communicate to another continent in real time. Some thought that was about as good as it would get, and they said so in publications of the day.

Next you did it with pictures, then with video, and now dear ones, the world is yours through simple devices you carry in your pocket. If someone has the correct equipment on the other side of your pocket device transmission, you could talk to the planet and they could all hear you at once. The secret, of course, is "all of you having the correct equipment".

It's interesting, isn't it, that communication to God was always linked to your current Human abilities and invention. In an older energy, when nobody could dream of instant communication with everyone else, you had to approach God in a limited way. Someone else with training and awareness was needed, and you talked to them, and they talked to God. In addition, it was like smoke signals in that there weren't many words. This whole idea is centuries old, but still exists today. So, you limited the "receiving equipment" of God to exactly what you were able to do or imagine as a Human. It was slow, not very clear, and someone else had to go "ride somewhere else" to deliver your message [a metaphor]. Do you see a bias?

Even today you haven't extrapolated your new technological improvement on your "God Box". Did you realize that? You’re still sending letters. Now many might say, "Well, wait a minute. That’s not true. I can pray and I know God hears me,”That is so, dear ones, but you’ve always felt it was one way because you never felt that God could hear you enough to give you an answer immediately. The perception was that God never had the "equipment" because you never did. How quaint of you.

This continues even today. There’s no technology high enough to have a real-time communication with Spirit or God where you could have a back and forth message at the speed of light. it simply is not acceptable thought. Don’t you find this odd, when Humans can do it between themselves? Does that make you wonder what the real "technology of God" might be – one that has no bearing on what Humans have invented or can imagine?

Even today, most of humanity still has to go through some kind of interloper that translates your message. Sometimes it's through an existing living Human and sometimes it's through a prophet who is no longer alive, but it's still "God in a Box". Somehow God simply can't be next to you – only the Human facsimiles can. I told you this morning that it gets even more dysfunctional than that, because this process is often accompanied with steps of achievement or funding in order for you to "receive your message". Humanity still has no widespread perception of an immediate connection to the creative source. By the way, that's what's coming next, with Human evolution of consciousness.

Common to Humanity – An Old Energy Perception

Dear ones, all of this seeming dysfunction is truly understandable because this is the only model of communication you have. That model is yourself and humanity in general, so if there’s an almighty God somewhere, the logical perception is that to get to this source, you must do the same kinds of things you might have to do if you needed to get to any world leader. There might be all manner of steps, procedures and activities that you do in order to achieve that communication, and all of those would be a mirror of what you do as Humans with Humans.

The Equipment is There, Always Has Been

We told you this morning that truly, you’ve got the equipment already inside you for instant communication with the creative source of the Universe – God. You had this equipment even when you were doing smoke signals and sending letters with express riders on horses. You had this stellar speed-of-thought communication at the very beginning of your civilization, but you didn’t understand this because you always applied the process of prayers to God to the process that you communicate together. What’s interesting is that you never updated your God Box! Even today for most of humanity, you are taught that it is difficult to speak directly to the Creator. One person even reported, "The Internet is just a little too high-tech for God."

A Different Energy and Perception

My message is this: You have always had a 100 percent speed-of-consciousness connection to the creative source. The reason? The logic? It's because the creative source knows you and your soul. The Creator made you in the image of love. You are not a stranger to God.

Here is another interesting thing about how Humans have handled their mythology. If indeed a mythological God can hear or see you, then be careful, for you will also be judged for what is "heard". Do you see any bias in this? No matter who you were as a child, Santa Claus could hear all of the requests at the same time worldwide. However, you better be good, or you don’t get a present. See where you go with this? Here is "God in a Box" for you: Even if Humans believe they can communicate with God, there’s still the question, "What does God think about what I said or did? Is it possible that Spirit can be angry or judgmental?” Anger? The answer is no. That is a low consciousness Human emotion. Judgment? No. That is a Human nature reaction. "God in a Box” is God in YOUR box. Understand how this has worked?

Emotions and The Creator

"Kryon, you told us that Spirit has compassion. Isn’t that a Human emotion?” No, dear ones, that is a Creator attribute that you get by being a Human. Listen: Love, compassion, benevolence and the coherence of putting things together are all attributes given to you from the creative source. Humor is also from the creative source. The creativity of music, the idea of harmonies causing emotional effects and sending you into coherence, is right from the creative source. These attributes represent things given to you in light that you have free choice to use or not. They are then balanced with the things you create as a Human in the darkness. That is the definition duality. It is the Human Being's perception of where to place their importance within their own consciousness. It's the balance of light and dark in your world. But make no mistake: What you consider as the emotions of love and compassion are right from the Creator.

Where Do You Go From Here?

So, what's next? Once you get to the place where you realize you don’t have to climb stairs or go through someone else to get to the original creative source of the Universe, it's far easier than you think to proceed with great communication. First, do you really believe all this? If so, you can sit in your chair, know you are magnificent (created in the image of Love) and say, "Dear Spirit, I know you are with me. Dear Spirit, I know you are here. Dear Spirit, I expect benevolent things in my life because that is the plan you have allowed for me."

Once you get to that stage, dear ones, you simply have thrown the switch that was always there. From now on, you begin to get real communication and results. But here is where it also gets difficult. "Kryon, you are wrong. I've tried this and nothing has happened. Kryon, it doesn't work.” I wish I could take you by the hand and lead you to higher consciousness, but I can't. It must be your own free choice, and how you do it is important. You see, the switch you throw isn't done with your linear mind. It's done with your aware, consciousness mind. It's done with faith and understanding, patience and trust in God. Many just "try it" and never understand that it's a full consciousness experience, and not a "I'll try it" experience. However, unless you actually begin to understand and love yourself, nothing much is going to happen. More on that in a moment.

Partial Communication

You are not in a box either. Let us say, for instance, you are a healer, and for so many years you’ve had the gifts and the tools of healing. Let's say for the past years there has been frustration because these past gifts either don’t work all the time, or they work in ways that you haven't seen before, or you feel you cannot control them. For any of these situations, it would be because those gifts are using spectacularly advanced energy that most Humans do not have. Do you know how to work with this? Most do not, due to the God in the Box bias. It even frustrated the shamans of old that sometimes the healings occurred and sometimes they didn’t. That even got them in trouble because those around them expected linearity in healing. They expected the linearity that happens when you cook a meal or make something. They expected a paradigm that is far different from what a healer has. Good communication with Spirit creates good results in your life, but it must be a non-linear communication that creates it. What is that really? It's a "trust me" paradigm. Can you explain love? Can you explain the compassion of God? These concepts are totally out of linear thinking, yet you can use then and trust them.

Most of you are attempting to work with non-linear energy in a linear world, and it's tough. It's tough because thinking in a linear way is an actual habit of reality. If you still think in a linear way about God, your efforts to really communicate will be limited. Metaphor coming: Imagine you want to call God on your cell phone. Common sense says hold it high and get a better signal. But instead you dig a hole and stand in it, since you don’t understand the technology, and people you trust have told you that you must be "grounded" to talk with God. You see? That limits the cell signal, but it's old logic. That's a very simply example of old thinking about a new paradigm.

You have an entourage around you and every single one of those in the entourage loves you dearly. However, they continue to watch you flounder in many of these things because in some ways you still have the bias of God in a Box. Even if you believe you can communicate instantly, you still don’t think God cares enough to work with you on the issue – honest. Free choice allows you to continue this all your life.

"Kryon, I'm fine. I know what I'm doing with Spirit. Don't tell me that I'm still biased in linearity.” Really? How do you think about yourself? Do you feel magnificent or are there some real issues with personal things that you can't shake? Your healing work with others and your own issues will absolutely be affected by how you feel about yourself. Period. That's a fairly new attribute that comes with advanced energy.

Many of you might go a lifetime or decades with an entourage around you, begging you to just ask and work things out because you are in communication and the line is open. However, you can't go any further than the true amount you can love yourself.

There is a new reality I want to tell you about. You really have only gone to first base, as they say. You just threw the switch and now you can talk. But what if God then talks in another language? Actually, you see that it's not a language at all, but a consciousness that needs to be interpreted. What if you need to put some things together that you never thought about to make these communications better?

The Communications Kit

Imagine another metaphor. You are now being asked to help "design" your gifts – this means the healer as well as the non-healer. The gifts are the tools for good spiritual communication for every Human on the planet. God in a Box can't work now, since that is a Human construct. Old habits of thinking about how things work cannot be in your mind. You have to think out of the box to now understand how to do things.

So, now you must design or construct something that has your stamp on it. After all, multidimensional things require the energy of consciousness, not stair climbing or bead counting. So, let's say the pieces and parts of what you must create all land in your lap so that you can design them. Imagine the cook somehow getting all the ingredients falling out of the sky and there they are, with all those parts of the meal around them. But the frustration is that the cook does not recognize any of the new ingredients! Things don't make sense, yet the cook is a good one. But suddenly someone says, "Are the ingredients multidimensional?"

You answer, "Yes. They must be. That's why I don't recognize them."

"Then why don’t you just use your intuition and put them together without using the linearity of the experience of past cooking or having to understand every piece and part?"

You answer, "I can do that! Now I get it!"

So, even though the ingredients that go into the potential meal are a mystery in a linear way, it's okay. Because now when you add the intuition and magic of an advanced consciousness that says, "I don't have to understand things in the way I used to in order to be able to create magnificent things in my life.” The meal starts to cook itself! What guidelines did the master painter follow on the blank canvas? What sounds did the master composer hear when he wrote the symphony? See? It all came through intuition.

That metaphoric meal you cook will be more nourishing than anything you ever made before, but you never thought about cooking those odd, non-linear ingredients, did you? You never thought you were in control enough to design the pieces and parts of the gifts you have, did you? You never thought you were worthy of it, did you?

Perhaps, just perhaps, you are still entertaining the habits of God in a Box. Again, the more you love yourself and trust in your intuitive self, the clearer the communication.

Not too long ago, we gave you a message that if you are a healer or you have any kind of gifts of Spirit, they’re going to increase. We told you that in this new light/dark relationship, suddenly you’re going to find yourself with an increased potential. You may see things you never expected or never had seen before. Results in your work may double, triple or even more. Did it ever occur to you how this is going to happen? Did you think you might actually be involved in the new design of the gifts? Perhaps you just thought they would appear and work? Not a chance. Oh, they will appear alright, but they will be uncontrollable for you. They will just fly around and come out (or stop) any time they want. Frustrating? Yes. That’s what will happen unless you understood the beauty of the design that you have around you, and how you are being asked to work with the new tools in ways you never did before – with no linearity – with nothing anyone has ever told you before.

"Okay Kryon, you got my attention. I’m a healer. Give me something practical. How do I design it? How do I cook the meal?"

How It's Done

Dear ones, you have an open communication with an entourage that knows your name and who sits there when you’re awake or asleep, looking at you. I want you to have a communication right now, like so: "Dear entourage, dear Spirit, thank you for these marvelous gifts. I now realize that it’s time for me to help design the improvement since they have my name on them. Give me the intuition and the energy I now believe in, which helps me to know what to do with them. Do this with me in order to suppress the things that need suppressing and release the things that need releasing. Let me have the patience for the timing of it. Let me do all these things in love and compassion."

Repeat this as often as it takes for you to believe it. It actually only really takes one verbalization, dear ones; however, repeating it lets the linear part of you hear it and believe it. After a while, the process then becomes this: You start to get the intuition you need and you start expecting the results. Then things start to work. Next, you want some more! Then you start expecting more! It’s a process like exercising a muscle, so you practice and practice and soon you realize that with the help of the entourage around you, it indeed is working.

Lightworkers, listen: Spirit knows you so well, however many of you are sitting in this group or listening to these words and I want you to know that there is a custom pattern for each of you to help you drop your fear and to help you get control of your biology. All of these things have your name on them. What this means is that this process is not a generic "take a pill" experience. It's customized for your own consciousness and energy. All this happens through communication.

It’s not too much for Spirit to listen to millions at the same time! That’s the spectacular energy of the consciousness of God. But it's also possible for Spirit to work individually with millions at the same time for a solution, and to create synchronicity that is outside of "luck" and what you think is possible. Don’t limit what you think is possible just because you don’t believe you are in touch to a high degree. You are. That’s the invitation. The invitation is to begin to understand all this.

If you think God is too far away to hear you, there is going to be an issue. That's God in a Human Box. However, if you think you can whisper and be heard and loved by the eternal creative source, then you’re on the right track. You see, it's not linear, is it? It's not the physics you have been taught, is it? It's not the doctrine of spirituality on Earth that you have been taught, is it? What if, just what if, God is bigger than anything you were ever taught? What if, just what if, I'm correct and you are indeed magnificent in the eyes of God?

Are you getting this? Ponder this message in a way that allows for truth to appear to you individually and understand that this is personal and customized energy just for your life. This is the message of Kryon and will continue to be, from the man in the chair.

And so it is.

Dutch get tougher on tobacco, bring in plain packaging next year

DutchNews, April 26, 2019 

Photo: DutchNews.nl

Junior health minister Paul Blokhuis is pressing ahead with plans to ban the sale of cigarettes in all but standard packaging with health warnings from next January, as part of a string of measures to stop more youngsters taking up the habit. 

The plans, which derive from the minister’s health agreement thrashed out with industry and social organisations last year, have now been put out to internet consultation. 

They state that all cigarette packages will have to be the same shape and colour, and will list only the name of the manufacturer alongside health warnings and photographs. The same will apply to rolling tobacco and e-cigarettes may follow suit in 2022. 

Blokhuis also wants to expand the ban on smoking in July 2020 to include e-cigarettes, so that their use will also be banned in the hospitality industry and at work, broadcaster NOS reported. 

Last September the government announced plans to add a euro to the price of a packet of 20 cigarettes next year, and to increase the price to €10 by 2023. 

According to the latest figures 22% of the Dutch adult population are regular smokers and while the number of young smokers has declined, 18% of 16 to 18-year-olds still smoke on a daily basis.

“…  The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. ...

US pharma bosses charged with fueling opioid crisis

Yahoo – AFP, April 24, 2019

New York (AFP) - Two former executives of a major US pharmaceutical company were charged Tuesday with fulfilling orders they knew to be fraudulent during the opioid epidemic that has claimed tens of thousands of lives.

It was the first time that senior or former executives have faced criminal charges in connection with distributing powerful prescription painkillers like oxycodone and fentanyl that carry a high risk of addiction and overdose.

The company where the executives worked, Rochester Drug Cooperative (RDC), is one of the country's largest distributors of prescription opioids.

It has entered into a non-prosecution agreement with the US Attorney's office in New York and agreed to pay a $20 million fine.

As result, the company will not be prosecuted and will be allowed to retain its license to distribute drugs, while promising to reform its practices.

In a statement, RDC admitted that between 2012 and 2017 it had failed to report shipments of drugs it recognized as suspicious, as required by law.

"This prosecution is the first of its kind," US Attorney Geoffrey Berman said in a statement.

"Executives of a pharmaceutical distributor and the distributor itself have been charged with drug trafficking, trafficking the same drugs that are fueling the opioid epidemic that is ravaging this country."

RDC distributes to some 1,300 pharmacies and with an annual turnover of more than $1 billion, according to documents released by prosecutors.

Investigators found that it had failed to report at least 2,000 suspicious orders of drugs whose distribution is overseen by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

The defendants were named as former CEO Laurence Doud, 75, and William Pietruszewski, 53, who had served as chief compliance officer.

"RDC's employees, including in conversations with Doud and Pietruszewski, described some of the company's customers as 'very suspicious,' and even characterized particular pharmacies as a 'DEA investigation in the making' or 'like a stick of dynamite waiting for (the) DEA to light the fuse,'" the New York prosecutors said.

"Nonetheless, throughout the period in question, RDC, at the direction of Doud, increased its sales of oxycodone and fentanyl exponentially," the statement added.

Doud and Pietruszewski were charged with conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison and a minimum of 10 years.

Doud was arrested Tuesday and appeared before a federal judge, who ordered his release on a $500,000 bond.

Pietruszewski pleaded guilty to the same two counts, as well as breaches of his duty to report to the authorities.

Around 47,600 people died in 2017 from an opiate overdose in the United States, according Centers for Disease Control and Prevention figures.

"This epidemic has been driven by greed," Berman told a news conference, adding that Doud had seen his salary more than double between 2012 and 2016.

Japan's sterilised 'eugenics' victims to get payout

is not enough (AFP Photo/Toshifumi KITAMURA)

Thousands of Japanese people -- some as young as nine -- forcibly sterilised under now-defunct eugenics laws, will receive government compensation after lawmakers passed historic legislation on Wednesday.

Following the unanimous vote, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe voiced "sincere regret" and said the government "apologised wholeheartedly" over the notorious policy.

Some 16,500 mentally disabled people were sterilised without their consent under the law that remained in force until 1996, according to health ministry data.

Each victim will receive 3.2 million yen ($29,000) under the measures passed on Wednesday -- an amount derided by campaigners as "failing to meet the seriousness" of the damage suffered.

The issue hit the headlines last year after a Japanese woman, now in her 60s, sued the government over a sterilisation operation carried out in 1972 after she was diagnosed with a mental disability.

Lawyers and campaigners have long criticised the government and parliament for failing to compensate victims long after the eugenics law was abandoned in 1996.

About 20 victims have so far filed lawsuits across the country seeking compensation of up to 38 million yen.

The first verdict over the issue will be announced on May 28, and plaintiffs' lawyers have vowed to seek compensation they say matches the gravity of the harm suffered.

"It is understandable that lawmakers have been hurrying to enact the law to pay one-off compensation to ageing victims," lawyers said in a statement before the legislation was passed.

But without sufficient compensation, it is not a "true solution to the issue," they charged.

Tokyo has pledged to pay the compensation "swiftly" but the government will likely continue to battle in court against victims claiming more.

Germany and Sweden had similar eugenics laws and governments there have also apologised and paid compensation to the victims.

Under Japan's law, some leprosy patients were also forced into abortions under policies that forbade them from having children.

In 2005, a Japanese court for the first time ordered the state to pay damages to a former leprosy sufferer affected by this law.

”Healer’s Instructions” – (Kryon Channelling by Lee Carroll)

Kryon.com, February 24, 2019

This live channelling was given in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Lee Carroll
To help the reader, this channelling has been revisited [by Lee and Kryon] to provide even clearer understanding. Sometime information is even added or condensed. 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 Santa Fe.

Greetings, dear ones, I am Kryon of Magnetic Service. When you take a look at the various places on the planet, some of them have very different energies. It's a hard thing to explain because you don't see the energies that are there, but you can certainly feel them. Many times, the result of a Gaia cooperation with humanity in a certain way can create pockets where people will clump and live because the energy there will enhance what they do. In the case of metaphysics, you're in one of those special places now.

This town of Santa Fe, for hundreds of years - even before your culture arrived - was known as a healing place. It's an interesting phenomenon where Gaia supports the Human Being in their healing work, connecting to the land with profound energies. All over this planet there are pockets like these and the interesting thing for you is that they are not always in pristine places. Some are in ordinary places that have extraordinary energy. So, what I want to do is address the metaphysical workers in this channelling, the ones who are finding themselves in these places with unique issues.

In these areas, healers tend to clump together. It's not just here in your country, but all over the planet. So, I want to specifically address the ones who are doing the work. Multidimensional energies on this planet are changing. Part of the light/dark relationship is changing, and it's what we have discussed earlier today. The energy is starting to shift and the ratio of light to dark is starting to change and it affects everything here. We have only "scratched the surface", as you say, in our attempt to describe the multitude of changes that begin to occur because of it. We started speaking of consciousness shift and the way people are starting to think differently, but there's so much more.

Yesterday we described how the various reflections that you might have of your past can now be designed and changed. You no longer have to live with the sorrow and the suffering of difficult memories, just because they etched themselves into your mind. Instead, you have a new kind of control over these things due to the new light/dark balance. The Human past, dear ones, was often really tough. It was tough because darkness always seemed to win, and that has been "the way of it" for almost all lightworkers, healers, readers and meditators. It has been tough going for centuries.

Now, almost every healer here or listening to my voice is probably aware of continuing what I would call "an expression". Let me explain. An "expression" is a return journey to Earth by the same soul (reincarnation). What I'm telling you is that what you are experiencing now is not the only time you've done this. You have awakened as a lightworker in this world many times. It seems to be intrinsic in the Akash that shamanism or the understanding of multidimensional energies seems to sail through the veil and enter into a Human Being's next life over and over. So, healers beget healers and they continue to get wiser with each life. However, the bad news is that the Akash carries a remembrance, a reflection of "the times when it didn't work" because of old energy in times where you were persecuted for who you were. Many of you had to flee the country or worse.

There were expressions when they would burn you at the stake because they were afraid of the energy you carry, which you now know today is simply light and love. They were afraid because your energy was simply too strong in a dark place and it was misinterpreted as a danger to them. So, many of you healers who are listening to me now in these special places on the planet know of what I speak. The light/dark balance on the planet is beginning to change and this is causing many kinds of reactions. I want to talk a little bit about this.

Number One

This planet needs you. You have a lineage of healing, of meditating, of facilitating, and you might be what they call a prayer warrior, where your meditations change things around you. You understand being in coherence with the planet. There are so many of you who do many different things that help this planet in places like this. You're unique and that's who I speak to now - unique energy workers of this earth. You are the unique ones who have these gifts now and have had them for eons.

Sometimes a healer will awaken and become a healer again and then will seek out friends and family. However, most of the time a healer will awaken as a healer and become a hermit. The reason for that should be obvious. It's because it didn't work before and the more people who surround you, the less chance you have of survival. Even during the tribal days, the healer lived on the outside of the village and the members of the tribe came to these healers one at a time. Unfortunately, you were also linked somehow with the weather. If the weather didn't shift correctly at the right time, the tribal people would beat a path to your door to tell you that you were in trouble for it.

So, it was all mixed up in the times of older energies and more darkness. It also affected who you were at that time and what you did and how well you did it. These were older times, but the energies are still carried with you. That has pretty well straightened out now, but still the Akash carries fear, darkness and memories of the things that happened to you.

The very first thing I want to say to you is that there is light today that wasn't there before. Even that Akash that you carry and you're afraid of can now have light where only darkness existed before. In other words, the actual dark memories have different remembrances and perceptions because today you have the wisdom to revisit them in a wiser fashion. You can now say to those darker memories, "That was an old energy and not representative of me today. It does not represent my power today. Today I have the wisdom to go back and see these dark things in the light." That is very different from a few years ago, for heretofore you've only been able to go back and see it as a horrible thing that affects you every day.

Wisdom is this way. You might say wisdom is a soft light that covers everything and allows you to see situations and events differently. Today you can make soft decisions based upon a wiser countenance. There are no knee-jerk reactions. Today you are able to say the correct things and even be so wise as to speak to your own Akash and your own life. That's a gift of the new energy healers. They start to see themselves for who they are in a different light. That's the first thing I want to give to you. As a healer, meditator, prayer warrior, facilitator or helper of Human Beings, you have always carried this. These talents carry through the veil, lifetime after lifetime. However, it's time to drop the past that has hobbled your future. That's only the first thing. Your light lets you create a different perceived past. It lightens the load.

Number Two

I am speaking to a group of lightworkers and old souls who are about to explode in their abilities on this planet. Explode means that they're not just going to be noticed, but rather they are going to be sought after because what they have works. It will be the beginning of a true paradigm shift, where even the medical community says, "There are things that we don't understand yet, or can explain yet, but we see it working and we accept it." Already, in certain countries, there are indigenous leaders being invited to find the best healers of their tribe for mainstream medical institutions. Those indigenous are coming into hospitals and they are being welcomed! The reason is because it works.

It's important to remember that the core level of doctors and nurses and helpers are located where the people are bleeding. This is what their passion is - to help people who are sick and hurt. They really do want to create healing. Sometimes the medical industry gets a bad name because of all of the politics and chemistry and the other dysfunctional things that go with it, but at the core level, medical professionals want to help people. So, when the alternate healers start to show up and begin actually healing people in unexplained ways, those doctors and nurses will take notice.

An older paradigm tells you that they may instead say, "Wait a minute. You can't come in here! You are not qualified and we don't understand how you're doing what you do." Believe me, when they see results over and over, they're going to say, "Please come in and work with these people! We'll talk about why your methods work later." They may even build a wing of the hospital for it! The change in attitude is because many of the healing techniques you have are working. This is coming, dear ones, but it won't be here until you explode into this new, wonderful ability that is starting to kindle itself in all of you.

I have so many suggestions, but the first one you're going to hear from me is to drop the fear of the past. Say to yourself, "That was then and this is now." I just told you that your time is here. I also just told you that in your next life you're going to continue as a healer if you choose, and the continuation is going to be a lot different from what you've experienced now.

In the next life, you'll awaken with a remembering of how to do exceptional things. You will naturally know how to work with multidimensional energy, which others can't fathom yet. But you will use it daily. It's the beginning of an old soul revolution, where these healing attributes will be seen first, above anything else you might have.

Think about it: This is what the public wants! If many are starting to do it, in an age of instant communication, thousands will know and the floodgate will open to healing that is new and efficient. Imagine you are a patient, reporting to a healer of these future times. Not only do they balance your body, but disease itself starts to ooze out of your cells! It won't have a choice, since the body itself is "receiving the instructions" on how to eliminate it. Can you imagine then, in subsequent years, you look in the mirror and realize you're not aging as much? Health and balance do that!

Then you start to realize your body didn't just heal, it received an instruction set from the boss (you)! Multidimensional healing is almost like consciousness homeopathy, where the body receives the information to process things itself. Multidimensional energies also speak to the Akash of the soul and also to the innate of an individual. A full-body healing doesn't mean just all the organs and the mental processes, it means dealing with perceptions of the past. Imagine such a thing! This is the powerhouse that I'm talking about in the ones who I speak to now, and some of you are smiling because you expected it. But for others of you, listen up.

There is a smaller group of very profound healers who have stopped healing. You've stopped healing because you're not getting the signal anymore. When I say the signal, only a healer will understand. Healers, listen: There's a certain multidimensional perception or feeling when you approach a situation or a patient. It's a feeling that has a special personal energy, a confluence of togetherness with your own consciousness. Then you simply know what to do. It's a knowingness, a gift. Others don't understand the knowingness because they don't have the perceptions you do. This lack of understanding was yesterday's historic problem. The public didn't understand you and you were perceived in a dark and fearful way. Today's lack of understanding is now responsible for being accepted and welcomed. You can heal, and that's very desirable. People want your perceived magic. There is no fear. But what if the knowingness stopped?

For many healers, suddenly, for some unknown reason, the knowingness simply vanished. There's no coherence anymore with the Universe. Many called it "connection with the universal core truth", which allowed your knowingness to work and your healing ability to always be there. Then it stopped.

To some healers, it was frightening and depressing, for it's all you do. What's next? For some of you who are still young, it seemed to be a time to retire! But it happened to many all at the same time, just in the past few years. It seems that as light came into this planet, your gifts disappeared. So, if this is you, I'm here to tell you something and talk directly to you. I'm talking to the ones who had this happen or are having this happen, who are listening to my voice or reading this right now.

I will tell you a basic, simple truth: Dear ones, the knowingness changed frequencies! Like the metaphor of a radio station that you are listening to, the communication changed frequencies. You're tuned to the wrong station or no station at all. Many of you felt that you had done something wrong, or perhaps the actual healing was starting to disappear for the planet. Listen, for the truth is very revealing.

Metaphorically the frequency that is now being broadcast to the healer on this planet is in a far greater spectrum than the old one. It's enormous! But if you're not ready to tune to the enormity of it, you think it stopped. Do you understand? It didn't stop at all. It simply moved and got bigger. So, to those hearing and reading me now, I give you these instructions. If you want to continue, I want you to go into a state of meditation - an understanding wisdom that only you can go to - and say to the Universe or to spirit or to the ancestors or to whomever you think is listening, "I am ready for the new frequency, which is going to enhance everything that's within me. I intend to continue my work as an old soul on this planet. Give me direction and wisdom to allow this change in me." Then expect it!

This gets right back to free choice, doesn't it? It also gets back to the fact that fear can stop you. Fear of the past, fear of the present, fear of the future all can stop you. You're a Human Being like everyone else and fear is part of the duality. However, you are a Human Being with special abilities who can sense dimensions. You can sense and work with the spectrum outside of the normal four dimensions that humanity lives within. You are looking at and working with a multidimensional energy that speaks to the Human cellular structure. That's who you are, and it's beautiful.

So that was the second thing I wanted to cover. The first thing, again, was the ability to temper the past with the wisdom and understanding of a new today. It's the ability to understand why something happened in an old energy, so you can move on. It requires dropping the fear to look at it or believing that it may happen again. It won't. You are on a new path.

Number two was the understanding that the energy of your knowingness never stopped. Instead, it simply changed channels. Now we're asking you to get to the right channel, and it's not that hard because you have help. You have an innate inside you that knows you better than anything else and that has been sitting there yelling at you to change channels while you've been in depression and retirement (as a healer). It's your choice. And now the third one - a review.

Number Three

Do you understand that the relationship to the energy that you have always counted on is now different? The relationship to the energy that you have always counted on is now different. [Kryon repeating] This means that the processes and procedures and habits that you had before any shift occurred on this planet may have changed. You cannot carry them into the new energy and expect everything to be the same.

Now, this is controversial and always has been. It's because there are always those who will say, "Spirit, God, whatever you call it, is the same yesterday, today and forever. Therefore, Mr. Kryon, I'm not going to change a thing because God never changes. The processes are sacred and also never change."

I agree with you, dear ones. The love of the creative source is pure and has never changed and never will. But your relationship to that source always changes and the relationship to the creator is the tool set of the healer. You've got to change your ways, habits and ideas about how things work with energy. Do you understand this? Everything you have been doing all your healing career is based on an old dark/light balance.

So, the first thing I tell you should be the best news, but it's also the most difficult thing to do: Stop that which you believe is needed due to an old relationship of dark to light. Listen, you don't have to clear the room. You don't have to clear the tools. You don't have to spend time here, there or face certain directions in order to get aligned. All that was indeed needed because of an older energy where darkness was everywhere. Now your soul's Merkabah clears it automatically. You walk into the room and darkness leaves! How do you like it so far?

I challenge you to test this. For those of you who can sense energy, test it. However, it won't work if you're carrying fear with you. When you're about to open the door and test it, if you say, "Oh I hope this works," it won't. Instead, you're going to open the door and expect it. Open the door and demand it. It's almost like, "Darkness, be gone! You don't belong here." Then know it's clear and get on with it.

Today a new energy is developing that is for you, old soul. The wind is at your back for the first time in all of your lifetimes. You have arrived on a planet that is shifting and it's got your name on it. This is because you're going to carry the load for a while. What happens after that is where Human Beings start to see what you can do - and they will. There will be the true understanding that your process is real and not "alternate healing", but another main branch of healing. Many will start studying your methods. You will be the teachers and mentors. Eventually, many Human Beings will be able to be their own medical intuitives.

The diseases of today will not be the diseases of tomorrow. We gave you that potential before, and the reasons are far different from what you expect. Do you realize what happens when cellular structures start to vibrate higher because of the consciousness of the individual? The answer is that old energy disease cannot attach itself to a higher, vibrating corporeal structure. Therefore, some of the diseases that are wiping you out today won't even exist tomorrow. This is because they can't get in. That's good news.

Of course, there will be those who will laugh at this and say, "Did you hear the latest that Kryon said? Let's all gather around and laugh." For those I say, "I'll talk to you in 10 years." That's always my answer, dear ones. Humanity is starting to lift itself up, slowly. Different places will feel it faster than others. There are places on this planet that will stay dark almost till the last moment. You'll find dark pockets almost as though low consciousness has to be somewhere, until the last moment when it will then clear. I told my partner some time ago that his next lifetime will be in one of those pockets - and that his job will be to help with the clearing.

Number Four

Here is the last thing for the healer: When you go into a session, you tend to expect the results you always had. However, as good as it might be, your expectations limit the results. I want you to look at what you do and expect it to double. I want you to expect it to double because it will. What I mean by double is that the efficiency or the results of the outcome will be much, much higher. I want you to see everything double because that is the potential at this moment on this planet.

The old souls who can see multidimensional energies and who are the healers and the medical intuitives are going to explode in their visibility. Doubling is for today, 10 times is for later, and that will get the attention of the hospitals. This is where the future is eventually going. Someday hospitals will have the allopathic and the metaphysical all together, depending upon which works for whom. All of it will be acceptable because there will be an understanding that it works. There won't be those running around trying to disprove it, either, because the results will not be marginal.

This is going to be the future. Allopathic medicine will not go away because there is a place for it. There's a place for good medicine and doctors with integrity, and there's a place for a balance between that as well. All of it can come together in a balanced way that will be a new paradigm, instead of how it is now in tiny little boxes that compete with each other for who is right and who is wrong.

All of these things, dear ones, come with a realization that you can't stay the same. For those of you who are entrenched in the old ways, I'll tell you that those around you will simply race past you and the angels around you will look at you and beg you to get on with it! You must realize that you cannot stay in one place with one reality and one idea when all that has changed around you. Just because you've had it all your life is no reason to believe it will never change.

Be open to things you don't expect. Look at every door of the future as a benevolent door. If you walk through it and there might be a non-benevolent thing that takes place, deal with it in love. You carry the light. Dark things will scamper away when you show them light. What I'm telling you is that today there are solutions to things that had no solution in the past. This is because you carry more light than you ever have before, and light is your wisdom to see things differently. It's the light of an entitled old soul.

You are not a victim of this planet. You are not a victim of a system. Your consciousness creates reality. When you walk through a door, expect things to be the way you want them to be. I've told you this before. When a lightworker of high consciousness goes into a place and expects a benevolent result, it's like ordering food on a menu of the universal restaurant of energy. You demand it because that is what the angelic realm around you has always told you is possible.

Many may say, "Well I believe the conscious part of Kryon's message, but why do you always have to bring the spiritual part into it?" There is a bias in the question. Do you see it? Humans tend to confuse the beauty of benevolence and compassion with the religion of today. You're putting these ideas into boxes of your own bias. The truth is this: The higher the consciousness of the Human Being, the closer to the understanding of the creative source they will be. The wiser the Human Being, the thinner the veil becomes between Human and spirit. The spiritual component of all this is the accelerator of the consciousness shift on the planet, because when Humans see what they can do, they'll understand. You can never separate the creative source from its creation.

And so it is.
