“Beloved masters, the collective consciousness of humanity is striving to acknowledge the extreme duality that permeates the Earth. Each and every person, at some level, is fighting the battle to attain greater Self-awareness, which must include embracing both the Light and shadow side of Self while endeavoring to return to an accepted range of duality and polarity. Each of you must recognize and claim your shadow side, your symbolic demons within, so that they, too, may embrace the Light of transformation. Human suffering is the result of rigid thinking, a sense of superiority and judgment of others, which lead to separation rather than unity and tolerance for opposing viewpoints. Can you accept the premise that your negative thought forms are also seeking release? They are rising to the surface of your consciousness, seeking illumination and truth, just as you are. You must take responsibility for what you create, moment to moment. Negative thoughts and actions result in distorted creations and chaos.

It is important for you to understand that your physical vessel was encoded for the return to the higher vibrational, more rarified realms of Light from the inception of your earthly embodiment experiences. Also, as humanity evolves, growing in wisdom and becoming more aware of the science and the intricacies of Ascension, there have been many adjustments to the process over the past several hundred years. Some initial Ascension procedures have been discarded and others, more advanced requirements, have been added.

In the past, Ascension was possible for just a select few.  Only those who came to Earth to be examples and wayshowers, and who were spiritually advanced, were allowed into the inner sanctums of the mystery schools. The secret doctrine was only given to those who were considered to be the strongest and most dedicated disciples. The lessons, tests and challenges were strenuous, and many perished during the process or did not attain their goal for many lifetimes. That has now changed, for time is running out for the Ascension of the Earth and humanity into the next level of awareness, and many Divine dispensations and much assistance are being offered to those who are striving to meet the challenges and tests of Ascension.

We have explained that each Soul, before incarnating into a physical vessel, is given an allotment of Adamantine Particles of Life for personal use throughout their lifetime. If a person’s allotment is used with loving intention for the greatest good, then the flow of Full-Spectrum Light will continue throughout his/her lifetime.  However, when a person becomes unloving, negative and embittered, the access to the Sacred Heart and the God Particles of Life is no longer available.  Thereafter, he/she can only access the Half-Spectrum Light, or the Primal Life Force substance, which can be re-qualified and used in either a positive or negative way.  Remember, Adamantine Particles of Creator Light can only be activated and used with loving intention for the highest good.

A young child’s heart center is open wide and the God Particles flow freely, unimpeded. However, how long the child’s heart center stays open depends on the love and nurturing they receive from their parents and those around them.  Many dear Souls have placed an etheric shield of protection over their heart center so that the pain and suffering will not affect them so drastically. Thereby,  they close the door to their Sacred Inner Sanctum where their God Particles of Creation are stored.

Along with the allotment of Adamantine Particles that were placed in each person’s Sacred Heart Center, a smaller allotment was also placed within each of the major chakra centers of the physical body. The largest portion was placed at the Root Chakra, which the ancients called the Kundalini, the coiled serpent of fire, or the Sacred Fire.

There is an accelerated planetary initiation now in progress, and it is affecting everything on the Earth Plane, especially sentient Beings. There are much fear and trepidation as the collective consciousness of humanity undergoes the dramatic changes that occur at the closing of one Age and the beginning of a more advanced era. Especially, when much of what was considered to be of vast importance on the earthly plane slowly changes or disappears. As these drastic evolutionary changes take place, they will not affect you if your Energetic Signature is of a higher, more balanced frequency. There is also a great sense of anticipation and excitement for those who have learned to stay centered within the Sacred Heart. There are many probable futures before each of you, and it is important that you stay centered in the Still Point of the present moment. You may be led to change course several times as you slowly move into the fluidity of the Higher Dimensions; however, if you allow your Sacred Heart and your Higher Self to Light the way, you will never be led astray. The time lines of the future lead to higher, more stable ground, away from the imbalanced spectrum of duality and the distorted reality of separation.

You are in the process of integrating the many Fragments of Self you have created while in physical embodiment. in preparation for a reunion with the many Facets of your Soul family, both on the Earth and in the many Dimensions throughout the solar system and galaxy, and eventually throughout this Sub-Universe and beyond. There must be a reunification with Self, and a return to your center of power, which resides within your Sacred Heart. Once you make the connection with your OverSoul/Higher Self, and begin the process of reuniting with all the Facets of your God Self (I AM Presence), the urge to reunite becomes a magnetic force that cannot be denied.

Your Soul, which is composed of Creator Essence, is your conscious guide and companion while in the physical vessel.  For a long time the Soul has been only a faint whisper for most people, for the ego-desire personality is very strong and has held a dominant position within. The initiation process begins when you slowly make way for the Soul to assume its proper place as director of your life, which eventually allows the Higher Self to take charge of your journey back into the realms of Light. Gradually, the Column of Light, which contains your Life Line to the Creator, begins to widen until eventually it is the width of the crown of your head. That is when you tap into the flow of your Divine I AM presence, and the Creator Particles of Love/Life begin to flow through and from you. This wondrous, luminescent Sacred Fire gives you access to your treasures stored in heaven—an unlimited source of Creator Light as long as it is charged with your Love Light and used for the greatest good.

The River of Life has a multitude of tributaries throughout this Sub-Universe, and many of you, as you tap into your Sacred Mind and learn to stay centered within the Sacred Heart, are becoming conduits for the Adamantine Particles of Creator Consciousness.  First, you must attune the Pineal and Pituitary Glands to your Higher Self, which begins the process of dissolving the membranes of Light that guard the Sacred Mind.  Your Sacred Mind makes the connection with your Sacred Heart, and once the activated Adamantine Particles of God Consciousness begin to flow from the Sacred Heart to the Sacred Mind; the process of illumination accelerates. The Creator Light flows through the Crown Chakra and enters the Pineal Gland, promoting cellular awareness as it activates the Pituitary and Hypothalamus Glands and courses through the brain structure into your Sacred Mind.  It then flows down into the Sacred Heart where the particles of Creator Light are further activated through your loving intention. These activated God Particles of Light are now ready to assist you in creating anything you desire as long as your intention is for the greatest good. The voice of your Higher Self becomes clearer, and the nudgings of your Sacred Heart, called your intuition become stronger.

INTUITION is the ability to understand a concept or certain information immediately, without conscious reasoning. Your Higher Self speaks to you via your intuition and, eventually, clears the pathway to your God Self and the wisdom stored within the cosmic records. Your intuition also gives you signals via a feeling of something being right or your truth, or a feeling of dread or discomfort when something is wrong or not in alignment with the Light / truth.

INSPIRATION is the process or quality of being inspired, such as when a sudden timely or unusual idea, sometimes about something that you were not aware of before, pops into your mind.  Channeling or messages from your angelic guides and teachers often lead to inspired concepts or awareness of things beyond the realm of your knowing. Intuition is validated via the mind first and then through the heart, whereas inspiration is validated through the heart first and then through the reasoning processes of the mind.

Your perception of time and space is rapidly changing as you learn to focus more on the moment instead of vacillating between the past and the future, with only moments of concentrated awareness of the present. Feelings of separation, isolation and judgment are being replaced by a sense of unity consciousness, which will eventually lead to a sense of oneness with all Creation. As time accelerates and the frequencies of Divine Light become stronger and more compelling, it is important that you reflect on what has taken place, the challenges you have met and overcome, the gains you have made, and the obstacles that you must surmount in the future. As the boundaries of your reality become more defined, and you allow much of what you thought was important to slowly change or fade into the past, you must become wiser and more discerning in your choices. When you cling to people or things which no longer fit in your new reality, the sense of being out of harmony becomes more pronounced.  By stating, “Thy will be done,” gives your Higher Self permission to increase your intuitive abilities, which include knowing almost instantly when you have made right or wrong choices.  By doing so, you can quickly rectify any actions that veer you off the straight and narrow Path of Ascension.  You, as faithful followers of the Light, must be ever vigilant in your thoughts and actions to be sure that you are always in alignment with your new, upgraded Divine Blueprint.

As the Vanguard Sentinels of Light, you have the ability to overcome or neutralize the negative thought forms of many thousands of people who are still functioning within the restraints of the Third- and lower-Fourth-Dimensional illusion. You are in the process of building a firm foundation for the future of all humanity. Your inner strength and wisdom will serve you well if you stay centered within your Sacred Heart as you become a master of Self and a conveyer of the rarified particles of God Consciousness.

Believe it or not, there were some advantages in the withdrawal of a major portion of your manifestation abilities in the past.  We have told you that the Red (exoteric or physical plane color) of the First Ray of Divine Will and Power to create was mostly withdrawn after the Earth and humanity sank into the density of the Third- and lower-Fourth-Dimensional environment. That was done so that humanity would not destroy itself during the age of extreme duality. That period is swiftly coming to a close as humanity awakens, and regains the ability to integrate more Spiritual Light. As you move forward into the upper Fourth and the lower Fifth Dimension, your physical body will become more radiant as the Creator Light begins to shine forth more strongly from within.  Remember, you were brought forth from the Sacred Heart Core of the Supreme Creator as a White Fire Seed Atom conscious Being, from which comes the saying, “made in the image and likeness of God.” The Light of the Creator contains energy, intelligence and everything necessary to create worlds without end, in order to fulfill the Divine plan for Creation. You are being given an opportunity to become a cocreator of the highest order; however, you must step out of your comfort zone and reclaim your birthright.

SHINE ON, my faithful Ones, and as your circle of influence radiates farther and farther out into the world, one day the circles of Light will overlap and your combined illumination will burst into pure God Light and surround the world. Follow the path of Light, beloveds; the time of the grand reunion is at hand. You are loved profoundly.” — I AM Archangel Michael.

Movie chains won’t premiere Sony Pictures “The Interview” after hacking and threats

By Maya Felts

Follow us: @EOTMOnline on Twitter EOTM.Media on Facebook

Most of the country’s largest theater chains have decided not to show Sony’s “The Interview,” according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter.

A spokesperson for the Malco Theater chain said they had no comment about whether the movie will be show in its theaters.

As of now on the Malco website, the movie is still listed to premier December 25.

The decision follows a strange warning on Tuesday from anonymous hackers, possibly from North Korea, that people should avoid going to theaters where “The Interview” is playing.

“The Interview” has become controversial because its plot involves the attempted assassination of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

Sony does not plan to pull the film altogether, but the studio has indicated it won’t object if theaters decide not to show the film, a second source said.

Among the top chains that have decided to not show the movie are Regal, Cinemark,  Carmike Cinemas, Arclight and Southern.

Another smaller chain, Bow Tie Cinemas, has also dropped its plans to show the film.

“It is our mission to ensure the safety and comfort of our guests and employees,” the company said in a statement.

Bow Tie operates 55 theaters, mostly in the Northeast.

The film’s Los Angeles premiere went off without a hitch last week, but the New York premiere planned for Thursday was called off after the new threat on Tuesday.

Sony Pictures has been devastated by a cyber attack that appears motivated by anger over the film.

So now theater owners have to decide whether to reject the online threats and show the film, or succumb to the pressure.

The controversy raises profound questions about freedom of artistic expression — even though “The Interview” might just be a mediocre comedy.

“The possibility that people will avoid theaters altogether is the problem,” the person said. In other words, it’s not just “The Interview” that could be hurt, it’s other Christmas releases like Disney’s “Into The Woods” and Universal’s “Unbroken.”

The people insisted on anonymity because Sony has not commented publicly.

Furthermore, according to The Hollywood Reporter, “exhibitors are wary of becoming liable if they show the movie and any violence occurs.”

To many observers, however, that sounds like a far-fetched scenario.

Daveed Gartenstein-Ross, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, said on CNN’s “New Day” that “this is essentially a heckler’s veto” of the film.

While Sony and U.S. government officials have not explicitly accused North Korea of being behind the hacking attacks, he said this seems to be “a foreign power engaging in a cyber-attack against a private actor, a private company, in order to squelch freedom of expression.”

The FBI is investigating the hack, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said Tuesday that “there is no credible intelligence to indicate an active plot against movie theaters within the United States.”

All the attention is causing some people to pledge to see the film.

“I am not going to let a terrorist threat shut down freedom of speech. I am going to The Interview,” screenwriter and director Judd Apatow wrote on Twitter Tuesday night.

Django Unchained Review

By Tanya Blake – Follow us on Twitter @eotmonline and Facebook @ EOTM.Media

4 Stars ****

Quentin Tarratino’s Django Unchained is a wildly exciting ride. A thrilling adventure in a sort of new age western style, which climaxes in a somewhat bizarre scenario.

The film is provocative with whips of cruelty and nightmarish stunts and tons of swagger.

Christopher Waltz, Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington, Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson are brilliant.

Django Unchained also emits pure almost meaningless excitement which I found sorely lacking in previous Tarantino’s films.

2012 - The Weinstein Group


The film is a loose remake of Sergio Corbucci’s western Django from 1966 with hints of Richard Fleischer’s exploitation cult classic, Mandingo. (1975)

The movie is very long, some 2 hours and 45 minutes which slowly relaxes and illuminates in its long form. Balancing deadpan moments of awe and reverence for the landscape and sound track. There are poignant moments of pure directorial mastery and audience enjoyment.

Jamie Foxx is effortlessly charismatic. I can see this one again and again.

EOTM! Online Movie Review: Red Dawn

Rating: 2.5 stars out of 5

So they’ve remade the 1984 movie Red Dawn, a Cold War fantasy about a group of American teenagers who fight to save their hometown from a Soviet invasion. The remake arrived in theaters today, November 21st following years of delays involving bankruptcy and a switch of the film’s central villains from the Chinese to North Koreans.

In the new film the teenagers fight to save their town from a North Korean invasion and we are smack dab back  in middle America where

Photo credit: Film District/MGM

the members of the local high school football team out of Washington State, the Wolverines, awake one morning to find enemy airplanes strafing suburban streets and parachutes blooming like a survivalist wet dream in the sky.

This befuddles Matt Eckert (Josh Peck), the talented but selfish Wolverines quarterback who will, one imagines, have to learn some lessons about teamwork if he is going to vanquish anyone. Happily, his big brother Jed (Chris Hemsworth), a U.S. Marine, is in town on leave and — as someone reminds us later — “a marine and his rifle. That’s the baddest (poop)-kickin’ weapon in the world,” although I don’t know how much consideration they’ve given to the (poop)-kickin’ possibilities of a Hollywood screenwriter with a big budget and an agenda of paranoid patriotism.

Matt, Jed and more Wolverines high-tail it to the Eckert cabin in the woods to organize a guerrilla force that will overcome the exotic new enemy. It was China in the original script until the realpolitik of trade and film distribution got in the way — the movie was shot in 2009 but its release was delayed and China has become a major economic force.

However, North Korea is handy because it has no oil or strategic value, nor does it have much of a movie market. It can, however, unleash an electromagnetic pulse to disable all our computers and bring us to our weakling knees. Thank goodness for the Wolverines, who stand on burned-out buildings shouting their slogan (“Wolverines!”) with the fervour of demented cheerleaders.

Meanwhile, though, there are family wounds to heal, the Eckerts being motherless children who are soon to lose dad to the casual atrocities of Captain Lo, which is a good name for him.

“Red Dawn” might not have been a great movie, but it fit within the context of its time — a time so far gone as to be almost unrecognizable to Americans today. If you were born the year the Soviet Union collapsed, you would now be 21. Even Mitt Romney no longer thinks Russia is our No. 1 geopolitical foe. As a nation, we’ve seen firsthand the damage IEDs (and a desperate civilian population) can inflict. Instead of one Cold War, there are now dozens of hot zones and areas of civil unrest. At a distance of 28 years, “Red Dawn” seems to sit at the intersection of anachronistic, naive and offensive.

Which raises the question: Why would MGM release a remake? I’m just saying…

Plus, there are the burgeoning romances, mostly between Matt and Erica (Isabel Lucas), his blond pillow-lipped girlfriend who has been captured by the Koreans and is being held in — ironically — the old football stadium. He must rescue her, even if it endangers his commitment to team play. Her lips alone are worth several lives.

However, there’s little time for lovey-dovey stuff. Jed has to teach everyone to be a resistance fighter — it takes about 10 minutes before the bewildered adolescents evolve into a combination of Minutemen and Rambo — and then they have to arm themselves.

Fortunately there’s no shortage of automatic weapons in and around Spokane, Wash. They’re kind of crappy, but they’re good enough to ambush the enemy and steal their good, North Korean ones.

The fun in Red Dawn is in trying to decipher the political subtext. For instance, Jed — a man who realizes the truth in the old expression, “Never get involved in a land war in the Pacific Northwest” — creates his heroic guerrilla force while acknowledging that this is the opposite of what has happened in recent American history. This time the terrorists are the good guys, and he admits he has learned lessons from the Viet Cong and the mujahedeen.

The result is America as the feisty underdog. “For them, this is just a place, but for us, this is home,” he says, as the Wolverines ambush the enemy in battles staged by director Dan Bradley with more gung-ho spirit than coherence. By the end, we appreciate the wisdom of the character who says, “Dude, we’re living Call of Duty. And it sucks.” That’s a big 10-4, soldier.

The remake is in theaters now!

Watch the official trailer now — if you dare.

Comic-Con Day Three Ground Report

Exhibit Hall is a microcosm of fandom and fun

Today’s entry comes from the trenches.  Not the press trenches I have been in the last three days, insulated in press conferences from the rest of the convention.  Today I made a concerted effort to see the Exhibit Hall and only cover one press conference: The Marvel Panel with the cast of Iron Man 3. Watch for that coverage as it happens.

(c) 2012 Greg Reifsteck

As I said on last night’s E Buzz! Show with Carla B. everyone’s Comic-Con journey is different.  I really enjoyed walking around the crowd in the Hall with everyone dressed up and enjoying the spirit of the Con. I am including some pictures of my favorites.

I ran into Breckin Meyer from the USA show buying t-shirts with his girlfriend. Sean Astin signing autographs at a random exhibitor’s booth.

Tons of wonderful creative comic book artists, writers and illustrators were showing off their wares, and doing portfolio reviews to the bright-eyed future generation of the comic book artist’s world.

I was wowed by the booths put up by the major studios and their dog and pony shows and big star autograph lines stretching the length of the hall. RazorGator - Get TicketsThis place is an epicenter of comics, TV, movies and pop culture that grows and evolves and mutates.

It was a great breath of fresh air.  Not that I am not excited to meet celebrities and record their thoughts to report to you, my Movie Maniac fans.  It was just good to be a civilian again.  The geek in me was doing the jig in side.  Enjoy these photos and let your own freak flag fly as you enjoy them.
