The Dark and the Light

By Anna Von Reitz

All my life perfect strangers have walked up to me and told me things they would never tell their Mother or their best friends.
This always amazed me.
Why, I would wonder, would anyone in their right mind just walk up to a stranger (me) and tell me that..... they cheated on their husband, that they lied to their best friend, that they cheated with their best friend's wife, that they stole thousand of dollars from their employer, that they had an abortion and still agonize over it, that they pushed their sister down a stairwell, that they killed their wife's cat and so on and on and on..... you name it, I've heard it.
I used to grimly joke about getting the word "Confessor" tattooed on my forehead.
And, then, unable to stop or further comment on this phenomenon, I'd just shake my head, say to myself --- "Duly noted." ---- and move on.
Most of the time, all these people "confessing" their sins to me just needed to tell someone, and maybe to be comforted.
It wasn't like I, or they, could or should do anything about 90% of the past wrongs being confronted.
What good does it do to admit an "indiscretion" with your best friend's wife thirty years ago? And you can't pay back money to dead men....or bring back dead babies.... or cats.... or make crippled sisters whole again.
Once you get thrust into the Confessor business, it rapidly becomes apparent that most of us owe debts we can't repay. And most of us have secrets that wouldn't look good in the light of day. All of us have things we regret.
It wasn't until my sons started reporting the same phenomenon --- perfect strangers walking up to them and blurting out the contents of their deepest and darkest secrets --- that I began to take a sterner look at this.
It was weird enough when it just happened to me, but when I realized that it was a common thread for my children, too---- then I began to worry about it.
Some of the things that people have told me really shouldn't be told except to Our Father in Heaven. Sometimes they just go too far, confess too much, and their gaping wounds and the wounds they have caused to others are horrible to know. Like lead weights. Like fingernails scraping on the blackboard.
And then these same people may get scared and lash out, really try to take me (or my children) down because they have told us all their worst secrets in a single blind blurting that even they don't understand.
I didn't want my children to go through that, but I was at a loss to prevent these weird outpourings myself. How could I help them deal with it?
It comes down to this ---- the dark always comes to the light for relief. The dark is trapped, waiting for a place to go, and when they perceive the light in someone else, those who are carrying all this darkness within themselves come forward and burst like a dam breaking.
They literally can't help themselves. They just pour it all out, because the conduit to "raise it up to God" is there, and they somehow know this. They are seeking healing and relief.
We listen like loyal St. Bernards and hope that it helps somehow. And keep our own mouths shut.
For all those like me out there who have had this happen repeatedly for no apparent reason -- there is something you can do. You can accept the darkness and pass it onward and upward, through your own energy system, transforming it as it flows on.
All that dark, chaotic, disordered energy and information needs to be reformed, returned to Our Father, the only One who can remake it into something good and bring roses forth from all our pain and all our manure piles.
Just imagine all that awkward awful darkness flowing harmlessly through you and flowing on upward to the throne of the True God, where it will be transformed into creative energy and cycled back to the Earth to do good works.
As strange as this concept is, that the Dark is coming to you to find relief and to be transformed, that is in fact what is happening.
Ever know a good person who is constantly beset by heartaches and troubles and accidents? It's because the darkness comes to them for help.
And they don't know what to do with it, so it just collects and pools up around them and causes them grief.
Think of your internal energy system like a step ladder. The darkness will typically enter at your mid-body and travel upward through the Crown Chakra at the top of your head. The dark will already be transformed enough to be harmless and it will not harm you as it exits your energy field, so long as you are conscious of this process and not blocking the flow.
If you think about it, everything connected to this realm has its own sanitation regimen. The garbage has to be taken out. The worms have to do their work. So it should not surprise us that the energy that flows through and around us needs to be purified and recycled, too, converted from chaos to order, from low vibrations of fear into high vibrations of love.
Somehow along the road mankind has forgotten how to do this, our attention has been distracted and our understanding has been lost, with the result that we are awash in un-recycled, dis-ordered, "waste energy" that has nowhere to go---- no conduit upward.
Be the conduit. Direct the darkness upward to Our Father, to be cleansed and restored and returned as new light and new love and new creative energy for the whole Earth.

The Fastest Way Home


By Anna Von Reitz

When we were kids we always had "the long way" and "the short way" home, depending on whether we wanted to dawdle and talk and toss rocks, or maybe swing by the drug store for a soda pop on the way home, or instead, wanted to take the short way and get home right away. 

Since then, I have learned that there is a short way and a long way to darn near everything.  

Including the paperwork needed to declare your birthright political status. 

There's the 928 Process, which is as valid and detailed and comprehensive as a full metal flak jacket, takes over a dozen different recordings and actions, and can take three months to complete. 

And there's the 1779 Declaration Process which requires four pieces of paper and a single recording that can be done in almost no time.  Of course, it just covers the basics, but it "conveys" people home. 

It's the difference between taking a luxury cruise liner into dock, or arriving aboard a life raft.  

Both will get you to solid ground, but it's up to you to decide what level of effort and protection and detail is best for you. 

The 1779 Declaration Process is the fastest way home.  

We encourage everyone to look over the other available documents to see what else you may need or like.  For example--- 

State Citizens will want to cancel Voter Registrations.  

Both State Citizens and State Nationals who were in the military and who want to live as civilians with no further attachment will need to send a Severance Letter. 

Most people will also want to Cancel All Prior Powers of Attorney.  

Parents will want to record when and where their children are born. 

So while the 1779 Declaration will get you home, there still may be "chores" to do to clean up the loose strings and issues of a lifetime spent (unknowingly) abroad, wandering around in the Federal United States. 

Understandably, some people who have already gone through the 928 Process are disgusted to learn that they have to fill out the 1779 Declaration and Witness Statements if they want to get the new State Credential IDs.  

This is because the 928 Process doesn't provide for photo ID.  That is one thing it has never done.  The new 1779 Process does.  

The 1779 Declaration not only conveys you home to the land and soil, it allows production of the State Credentials that identify you as an American.  

No more hassles or presumptions about your political status.  No more inane arguments with judges and attorneys and politicians.   

From the perspective of those who did the 928 Process it is three more pieces of paper to do in order to get your State Credentials, but going forward, the 1779 Declaration will convey millions of people home and give them the credentials they need to be properly identified as Americans --- either State Nationals or State Citizens. 

That's a mighty work for only three pages of paper to do.

Instruction on the Sixth Sunday After Pentecost

Rev. Fr. Leonard Goffine's
The Church's Year


The Introit of this day's Mass is the prayer of a soul that trusts in God's powerful and merciful protection:
INTROIT The Lord is the strength of his people, the protector of the salvation of his Anointed: save, O Lord, thy people, and bless Thine inheritance, and rule them for ever. Unto Thee will I cry, O Lord: O my God, be not Thou silent to me; lest if Thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit. (Ps. XXVII.) Glory be to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
COLLECT O God of hosts, to whom belongeth all that is perfect: implant in our hearts the love of Thy name, and grant within us an increase of religion, that Thou mayest nourish in us what is good, and by the fervor of our devotion may preserve in us what Thou hast nourished. Through our Lord Jesus Christ Thy Son, who liveth and reigneth with Thee, in the Unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end, Amen.
EPISTLE (Rom. VI. 3-11.) Brethren, All we who are baptized in Christ Jesus, are baptized in his death. For we are buried together with him by baptism unto death: that as Christ is risen from the dead by the glory of the Father so we also may walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall also be in the likeness of his resurrection. Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin may be destroyed, to the end that we may serve sin no longer. For he that is dead is justified from sin. Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall live also together with Christ. Knowing that Christ, rising again from the dead, dieth now no more, death shall no more have, dominion aver him. For in that he died to sin, he died once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. So do you also reckon that you are dead indeed to sin, but alive unto God, in Christ Jesus our Lord.
EXPLANATION The apostle here teaches that in consequence of our baptism we are made members of Christ's body, and must, therefore, die to sin; as Christ by His death died to physical life, but has risen again, so must we bury sin, by constant renewal of baptismal vows, and by self-mortification rise to a Christian life. As members of Christ's body we should in a spiritual manner imitate Him. As He permitted His body to be nailed to the cross to atone for our sins, so should we crucify our corrupt nature by self-denial, and as He after His Resurrection lives always, because having risen He dieth no more, so we, risen from the death of sin, should lead a pious life conformable to that of Christ.
ASPIRATION I trust, O Lord Jesus, that by the merits of Thy passion I have risen from the death of sin: grant me Thy grace, that as Thou diest no more, so may I die no more by sin, but live for God, according to Thy law.
Sixth Sunday After PentecostGOSPEL (Mark. VIII. 1-9.) At that time, When there was a great multitude with Jesus, and had nothing to eat, calling his disciples together, he saith to them: I have compassion on the multitude, for behold they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat; and if I shall send them away, fasting, to their home, they will faint in the way: for some of them came from afar off. And his disciples answered him: From whence can any one fill them here with bread in the wilderness? And he asked them: How many loaves have ye? Who said: Seven. And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground. And taking the seven loaves, giving thanks, he broke, and gave to his disciples to set before them: and they set them before the people. And they had a few little fishes, and he blessed them, and commanded them to be set before them. And they did eat, and were filled, and they took up that which was left of the fragments, seven baskets: and, they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away.
Why did Christ say: I have compassion on the multitude?
Because of His mercy and goodness to man, as well as to prove that which He taught on another occasion, (Matt. VI. 33.) that to those who seek first the kingdom of God and His justice all other things will be added, without asking; for none of the multitude asked Christ for food, and yet He provided for all.

INSTRUCTION ON BLESSING
And He blessed them. (Mark VIII. 7.)
Seduced by Satan, the first man violated the holy command of God, and by his sin brought upon himself and his habitation the curse of divine wrath. (Gen. III. 17.) Man was made by God, and therefore subject: to Him, but was himself master of all created things. .After the sin of disobedience, however, all creation revolted against him: the animals fled from him, the fields yielded only thorns and thistles, the herbs became poisonous to him, or refused him their former wholesome power. Innumerable evils followed, all men and even the whole earth suffered from them; the devil drew both into his sphere and made them his servants, and this evil spirit now made use of created things to divert man altogether from God and to cause his eternal ruin. But God decreed that man and earth should not remain in this condition: Christ, the Son of God, came upon earth, redeemed it from the bonds of Satan, and gave all men the power to become once more God's children. The devil was conquered by the cross, but not slain; man and the, earth were indeed taken from his dominion, but not from his influence; for he even now, as the apostle Writes, goes about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour, (I Peter V. 8.); and as he used the forbidden fruit in paradise to seduce man, he now uses the created things of the earth to tempt man, and make him his servant. Man and all creation had to be drawn from this pernicious influence, to be liberated from the bondage of corruption and be brought to the freedom of the children of God. (Rom. VIII. 19.) This is done in the Church, to which Christ entrusted the power of binding and loosing, and gave the work of sanctifying through the Holy Ghost, by means of blessing and consecrating. By virtue of the merits of Christ, and with the assistance of the Holy Ghost, the Church, or the priest in her name, therefore blesses and consecrates persons as well as other created things which they are to use, or which she is to apply to the service of God. In this the Church follows the example of Christ and the Apostles. Jesus embraced children and laid His hands upon them, blessing them; (Mark X. 16.) He blessed bread and fishes, the food of thousands; blessed bread and wine at the last supper; (Matt. XXVI. 26.) was recognized by the disciples in the blessing of bread; (Luke XXIV. 30.) blessing the disciples He ascended into heaven; (Luke XXIV. 51.) by His command the apostles wished peace to every house into which they stepped; (Matt. X. 12, 13.) and St. Paul expressly says, that every living thing is sanctified by prayer and the word of God. (I Tim. IV. 5.) Following the example and command of Christ the Church also introduced blessings and benedictions which were prefigured in the Old Law. God commanded the priests to sanctify and to consecrate whatever was to belong to His service, (Levit. VIII.) and the Old Law is full of blessings and consecrations which had to be used by the priests; (Exod. XXIX. 36.; XXX. 25.; XI. 9.) and if persons and things used for God's service were to be blessed, how much more so in the New Law which in place of the type, contains the reality and truth. The testimony of Scripture is confirmed by all the holy Fathers, and by the constant practice of the Church which has received from Christ, the power to bless and to consecrate.
The blessing or benediction of the Church is nothing more than a prayer of intercession which the priest makes in the name of the Church, that for the sake of Christ (therefore the sign of the cross) and the prayers of the saints, God may give His blessings to a person or thing, and sanctify it. Through consecration, in which besides prayer and the sign of the cross, the anointing with holy oil is used, things required for divine service are separated from all other things and especially sanctified. Thus persons, fruits, bread, wine, houses, ships and fields, are blessed; churches, altars, bells, &c., are consecrated.
What virtue have these blessings?
The chief effects of the blessing of persons are: Preservation or liberation from the influence of Satan; preservation of the soul from his temptations and evil suggestions; reservation of the body and of the property from his pernicious malice; forgiveness of venial sins, and strength to suppress concupiscence; curing of sickness and physical evils, whether natural or supernatural; a blessing upon the person and his surroundings; the imparting of the grace of conversion; the advantage of the prayer of the Church and further grace for the remission of temporal and eternal punishment. The blessing of things withdraws them from the influence of the devil, so that he can no longer use them as a means of bringing us into sin, but that they rather serve us as a protection against the evil spirits and as a means for our salvation.
Whence do the blessings derive their force?
From the merits of Christ who by His death on the cross vanquished Satan. The Church asks God that He will through these merits and through the intercession of the saints bless a person or thing, and make that which is blessed profitable to us for both body and soul. Whether or not the effects manifest themselves in the person who receives the blessing, or makes use of the object blessed, depends on his faith and moral condition, as also on the usefulness or profit of the blessing to him. We should not, then, place obstacles in its way by diffidence in God and the prayers of the Church or by a sinful life, but should always be convinced. that these benedictions will serve for our benefit, if according to God's will they are used as the Church intends, as a means to overcome evil, to sanctify ourselves, and to honor God.
Why are salt and water blessed?
This is plainly shown in the prayer the priest says in blessing them; for he asks, in the name of the Church, that God may pour the virtue of His blessing over the water that it may conquer devils, prevent sickness, and that everything which is sprinkled with it, may be preserved from every injury, and that He may bless the salt, so that it may be salutary for the body and soul of all who use it. The salt which Eliseus sprinkled into the unwholesome waters of Jericho healed them, (IV King. II. 20. 21.) and is a type of blessed salt.
Why are the people sprinkled with holy water on Sundays?
To remind the people of the interior purity with which they should come to divine service, and fulfill the duties of their calling; and to exhort them to purify themselves from the stains of sin by tears of sorrow, and repentance. Hence the priest in sprinkling the faithful recites the words of the fiftieth psalm: Asperges me hyssopo, etc. Sprinkle me with hyssop, and I shall be cleansed; to remind them to preserve the purity and innocence procured by the blood of the Lamb of God, and communicated to them in baptism. Finally, the people are sprinkled that the temptations of the devil may depart from them, enabling them to attend with great fervor and with more recollection to the holy service.
What else is to be remembered concerning the use of blessed things?
That they are to be used with faithful confidence for the purpose for which the Church blessed them, and are to be treated with great reverence, because they are blessed by the Church in the name of Jesus, a custom almost as old as Christianity itself. The Christian must not believe that blessed things which he possesses, carries, or uses, will make him holy, for he should always remember that things blessed are only a means of sanctification, and are only effectual when the faithful have the earnest will to die rather than sin, to fight with all fervor against the enemies of their salvation, to follow Christ, and be thereby received into the freedom of the children of God, and into heaven.
