    Alpha Draconians (hu r they) & or Pale Ones Their Slaves

    in Self Help

    What up 9Mind Family. Last night we featured a grounbreaking show where a Tall One (aka) Ari`AN bka GerMan named Rudolph shocked the internet world by uploading a nine part video series revealing that those who renamed themselves (whites) where not of the true Human family after all. He named Human's as those being of African, Indian, Asian, Blacks/Islanders and native American ancestry. He revealed their plan of depopulating all the African's from their original prime piece of real estate know as AFRICA and relocating them to Eu`Rope so that they, HIS KIND can have Africa and all it's minerals and resources all to themselves. His admission was quite shocking but not alltogether unbelievable since we Blks here in the USA have always known that the whites who came from across the SEA where extremly different, but in a brutal, predatory malevolent type of way. Some believe that those labelled as whites have been cured of this natural malevolence they tend to have toward those of melanin rich skin tones and only lose this malevolence once those of that tone or hue are totally subject to their every command and proclivity. Horrific huh? I would like to continue to explore what Rudolph THE ARI`AN has revealed and see if there are not some other missing details to this revelation that Rudolph has not yet been given permission to tell us. Let's go.....

    The New Essenes: Names of Power Part II

    in Spirituality

    “God:” has there ever been a three-letter word that simultaneously holds diametrically opposite meanings? For some people, it equates a benevolent force that is loving and generous; for others, it is a punishing power, out to get revenge! Soon “God” becomes a Santa Klaus figure, who keeps a running count of our good and bad deeds to determine just how much toys we’re gonna get or whether we’re going to heaven or hell!

    The New Essenes is a gathering of ordinary people practicing deep introspection as a way to solve everyday problems. Our inquiry is based on the idea that language is alive and that the Word is where our Power lives: since speech is an act, communication is not what is said and done, but the result of what is said and done. By joining in and coming back, we increasingly benefit from the distilled essence of an ultimate method of inquiry, based on Sacred Geometry and known as the Path of XPR.

    Our meetings last one-hour & are structured as follows:

    1.       The first 5 minutes: Welcoming, Checking In. taking a moment of silence.

    2.       The next 10 minutes:  Ritual readings.

    3.       The last 45 minutes: Introduction of a topic. Group Sharing & Inquiry, Summary / Ritual Closing.

    Emancipation of Slaves in the British Virgin Islands, Rebroadcasting

    in Culture

    The British Virgin Islands, part of a volcanic archipelago in the Caribbean, is a British overseas territory comprising 4 main islands and many smaller ones. Tortola is home to the low-key capital, Road Town, and rainforested Sage Mountain National Park. On Virgin Gorda is The Baths, a labyrinth of beachside boulders.

    The abolition of slavery occurred on 1 August 1834, and to this day it is celebrated by a three day public holiday on the first Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in August in the British Virgin Islands. The original emancipation proclamation hangs in the High Court. However, the abolition of slavery was not the single event that it is sometimes supposed to have been. Emancipation freed a total of 5,792 slaves in the Territory, but at the time of abolition, there were already a considerable number of free blacks in the Territory, possibly as many as 2,000.

    In January 1808, HMS Cerberus seized the American schooner, the Nancy with a cargo of enslaved Senegalese Africans in the Territory's waters; between August 1814 and February 1815 a further four ships' slave cargoes were seized from the Venus, the Manuella, the Atrevido and the Candelaria and a further 1,318 liberated slaves were deposited on Tortola's shores (of whom just over 1,000 survived).

    In 1819, a Portuguese slave ship, the Donna Paula, was wrecked upon the reef at Anegada. The ship's crew and 235 slaves were saved from the wreckage. Further Spanish ships, enroute to Puerto Rico were reported wrecked on the reef at Anegada in 1817 and 1824, and their cargos settled on Tortola.

    Although many of these former slaves died due to the appalling conditions that they were kept in during the transatlantic crossing, a large number survived, and had children. - Courtesy of wikipedia.org
