Moscow’s decision to drop the South Stream gas pipeline was the “logical conclusion to a prolonged story,” politicians in Bulgaria say.
“This [decision to halt South Stream] is really bad for Bulgaria,” Tass news agency quoted Bulgarian MP Borislav Borisov as saying. “We have lost an essential project. I was surprised by the news, but, perhaps, Russia’s decision is natural, as the Bulgarian government hasn’t been actively engaged in this project in recent years.”

“This is a story about suffering trauma, falling into the pit of powerlessness and despair, rising out of it through anger, and the eventual reconciliation that doesn’t simply recapture the power that was lost but transcends it. ” … “Upon second sight, it appears to me that Maleficent is a story about the golden shadow, an allegory of developing from childhood into adulthood, and of how the self integrates and eventually overcomes experiences of loss, pain and trauma.” … “Owning one’s shadow leads to integration, to a kind of sovereignty or self-mastery that arises from being able to balance the contradictory forces and energies within the self.” Once again, unpacking a fairy tale brings great reward. Thank you, Anna Nimm!
Aurora, the dawn, the princess of light and goodness who is blessed by fairies to always have a smile on her face, has a dark, malefic shadow. When Aurora meets Maleficent (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYemY3xFsB), she says, “I know who you are. You’ve been watching me my whole life. Your shadow has been following me ever since I was small.” She invites the shadow to come out from the dark forest so she can look upon her face. Maleficent answers “then you’ll be afraid.” In this teaser clip (which doesn’t correspond to the actual timeline of events in the film), when Maleficent steps out from the darkness, a wall of thorns rises up around the enchanted forest, separating the shadow world of dark, mythical creatures from the human kingdom of light. It sounds like a perfect Jungian account of our first encounter with the shadow – when we first get a glimpse of…
It seems December is now being shared in parts, the first part being the first week we are now in. The culmination of this week, creating outcomes of continued direction for the next part of December. The focal point beyond this week, is that interesting date of the 11th, that is what I would like to expand on today. I so wish I could put this into a video or hell, even a painting, because you would understand where I know my words are going to fail… but alas, my words are my only paintbrush… dammit!!
Lets first take the number 11, two 1’s that create a column or pillar, the ones also representing new beginnings when separated, butting them together to form the eleven is spiritual illumination, a light house if you will. It is also our new storehouse of Light as well, but different than ever before. (<–this part, I am still trying to understand.) Continue reading →

The United States understands that Iran is also bombing areas of Iraq where extremist group Islamic State is operating, a defense official has confirmed, but it will not respond to Tehran’s presence unless there is an immediate threat to US forces.
“We are aware of that. I wouldn’t say we’re necessarily concerned with it – we kind of have our eyes on it,” the official told The Huffington Post, adding that Iran is bombing targets close to its own border with Iraq.
The US is currently leading its own airstrike campaign – assisted by Western allies like the UK and regional partners like Saudi Arabia – against Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL) in Iraq and Syria, countries where the group has come to control large swaths of territory.
The official’s claims come days after IHS Jane’s Defence Weekly, a British defense analysis organization, and Israeli news outlet Haaretz both reported that an Iranian jet had flown through Iraqi airspace.

Please send prayers for real justice and healing in this absurd and draconian situation. Reiki practitioners and Master Teachers, please surround this family with Reiki and empower a joyful reunion with their babies. If you live in Washington State or know people who do, please call or email the Governor, whose info is listed at the end of this post. This story is, unfortunately, part of a rapidly growing trend of medical kidnap — parents losing custody of their children for pursuing non-toxic alternatives to BigPharmafia drugs or even for just seeking a second opinion. Children are our future, and woe to those who try to destroy the sincere love and care for them. May justice and healing prevail. Soon.

A long list of sexual activities has been banned from UK porn following a recent amendment to the 2003 Communications Act. Featured on the list are recreational pastimes such as spanking, caning, aggressive whipping, female ejaculation and facesitting.
The new regulations will not stop viewers enjoying various styles of pornography, but online video makers in the UK will now have to adhere to the same rules laid out by the British Board of Film Censors (BBFC) as adult DVDs sold in shops.
The move has been criticized by femdoms (female dominatrixes) who claim the “outlawed” practices appear to target women, who are more likely to gain pleasure from the activities than men.
“The new legislation is absurd and surreal,” Itziar Bilbao Urrutia, a dominatrix who produces porn with a feminist theme, told Vice UK.
Student activism may be at risk as a result of new anti-terror rules set out by the British government, with protesters facing Public Order Offence charges if police believe them to be involved in suspicious activities.
In a compendium of new measures pushed by the Home Secretary Theresa May, universities will face significant pressure to reduce activities that could lead to ‘extremism’, including banning controversial speakers and curbing events that could lead to public disorder.
Although the bill was designed to stop the religious radicalization of young people, in light of the 500 Britons suspected to have joined jihadist groups in Syria and Iraq, the draft bill does not specify what activities would classify as being “extreme.”
‘Operation Gladio B’–the continuation of the old NATO Gladio program–covers a tangled web of covert operatives, billionaire Imams, drug running, prison breaks and terror strikes. Its goal: the destabilization of Central Asia and the Caucasus. In this presentation to Studium Generale in Groningen on November 19, 2014, James Corbett lifts the lid on this operation, its covert operatives, and the secret battle for the Eurasian heartland.

President Barack Obama is expected to announce Ashton B. Carter as his nominee to be the next secretary of defense, the Associated Press reports. Carter served as the Pentagon’s second-in-command from October 2011 to December 2013.
If confirmed by the Senate, Carter would replace current Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, who announced his resignation last Monday. Carter served as deputy secretary under both Hagel and his predecessor, Leon Panetta. Before that, he was the under secretary of defense for acquisition, technology and logistics from April 2009 until October 2011, where he “led the Department’s efforts to accelerate the fulfillment of urgent operational needs; increase the Department’s buying power; and strengthen the nation¹s defenses against emerging threats,” according to his DOD bio. In layman’s terms, he was the Pentagon’s “chief arms buyer,” Reuters noted.
The AP reported that a senior GOP senator confirmed early Tuesday that Obama has chosen Carter for the role.
