PROPAGANDA is a weapon that attacks the mind and is designed to destroy you by your own fear and thoughts. Are you ready to learn how to take back your mind and thoughts to stay in control and in the here and now? Then read on…
Gaslighting and propaganda is one of the chief weapons of sociopaths. And today, it is the weapon of choice being used by the globalist cabal and their media puppets to kill, steal, and destroy humanity. It isn’t new, it is the oldest weapon used throughout history, even from the beginning in the garden of Eden. It is now being exposed for the evil that it has always been! And there is something you can do about it! You have the power to stop it!
First of all, your brain can do nothing without your mind which can do nothing without your thoughts, which can do nothing without your heart and soul producing them. God has given you the power within to overcome the evils that attack your mind from the outside forces, even in the darkest hour of your life. It is the power that martyrs muster up in order to stand firm in the day of their calamity. It is what the Bible calls the power of faith. Science cannot understand it and they can’t override it…they can only attack it and diminish your attempt to use it. They do this by overloading your ability to think, feel and choose. It is an attack on your free will.
God gave man free will which is the ability to think, feel and choose. This is something that man cannot touch or alter physically, for God put this into the body through the soul, and spirit of life. Our emotions and body are alive through the spirit and soul, not through the brain, nor any other function. There is no such thing as brain dead, for the brain can do nothing on its’ own. It is a hub for the thoughts we feed to it via our mind which is a collection of what we think, feel and choose. Which we have control over what we think, feel and choose. Now we must learn how to stay positive with these choices by understanding how our faith works to overcome fear.
Man in his evil can only attack what you think and feel so you will choose wrongly. It goes hand in hand with temptation. An attack on your mind is a direct attack on your free will! This is why torture has been used throughout history. The goal is to break the person’s will to obey or tell secrets. Sometimes just the threat of torture will get one to fear and do what they are told. Fear and doubt is the opposite of faith. The Lord said fear not he who can destroy the flesh, but fear him who can destroy both the soul and the flesh. Man can not destroy your soul. Only God. This is a truth. Neither can man, nor the devil control your self will; they can only try to change the way you think, feel and choose.
During this plandemic and propaganda war we have all been affected by the mandates and crazy upset of our private and professional lives, our family inter-functions, our work place, schools, our social world live and virtual on social media. Being censored and fact checked for simply having an opinion has been a real eye opening experience and one that many simply don’t know how to walk through safely in their minds. Especially when simple tasks like going to the grocery store have become challenged with six foot distancing, mask mandates, sanitizing and supply shortages.
Meanwhile, fake media keeps feeding the masses lies and fear based lies such as, “We’re all going to die if you don’t take the jab!” That garbage is followed up with, “We’re all going to die even with the jab”. We watch in real life and in videos and see many people have gone mad acting out like psycho’s when they see someone who is not wearing a mask, or when they are not getting what they want. What is causing all the manic behavior?
It is a propaganda war created to attack the mind, playing on your emotions and it is designed to destroy you by your own fear and thoughts. The ones who created the plandemic all know this and they have designed the fear propaganda very strategically as part of their mind control program to lead the people like cattle with a herd mentality to the slaughter of their jabs, and new world order of control. Fear and chaos is the weapon of the day. So how do we combat the weapon they are using against us?
We tell each other to fear not and use the shield of faith to protect from the firy darts of the devil. But how do we do this? How do you teach someone how to actually do it? How do we learn how to use the things that are unseen? If we are unsure how to use the shield of faith…how can we use the rest of the armor? Let us look at how God wired us and when we see this…we will have taken a GIANT LEAP FORWARD!
We have a super power called the Holy Spirit and a soul that operates independently from the propaganda thrown at us. When we step away from pseudo science and learn how God put our body together, you will be amazed at how you can learn to fear not!
On a personal note: As what happens a lot, the Lord led me to discover this new person named Dr. Caroline Leaf. I was amazed at her explaination on how our mind and brain works and how to use it. I was especially intrigued when I listened to realize that what she has said to do are things I have always automatically done to stay focused. It was innate and I contribute that to the Holy Spirit. But the self talk and self analysis I found astounding that I have been shown to do this and always thought it was just my crazy way of thinking. Daring not to share it with only but a few people ever. Because it went against the mental health norm and sounded like denial. But, to me it was always a knowing and faith. Now I have been vindicated. I’m sure many of you have also done these same things. For those who have faith, you will understand what she is saying and now you will have some extra insite and tools to keep strong. And the tools to help others become strong and awake from the mind control.

Are You a Shock-Absorber? The Signs, How It Messes Up Your Mental Health & Solutions
By Dr. Caroline Leaf on June 20, 2021
In this podcast (episode #292) and blog, I talk about a post I recently put up from @psych_today about being a shock absorber in a relationship, which generated a lot of great comments and questions! In fact, one reason I reposted it was because, as I was reading the post, I realized that I tend to do a lot of shock-absorbing. From the comments, it appears I am not alone in this—a lot of you are in the same boat. So, I am actively mind-managing this over the next 63 days to change this habit in my life, and I hope you will join me!
So, what exactly is “shock-absorbing”? It is kind of like feeling you need to smooth things over all the time or keep the peace and avoid conflict in your relationships. It includes feeling responsible for maintaining harmony in your relationships, trying to justify another person’s negative behavior to blunt their impact, taking on more and more responsibility in a relationship, feeling resentful or over-burdened because you are always trying to keep the peace, or putting up with bad behavior to avoid conflict.
I think most of tending to shock absorb in our relationships. Now and then, this is okay, if we recognize and regulate it. However, it can become a problem when we get into the habit of doing it all the time—it essentially becomes a toxic pattern in our life, which benefits no one and can dramatically impact our wellbeing. Indeed, some of us shock absorb so often that it has been wired into our brain as a default pattern, which is exhausting because it works against the “wired for love” nature of the brain (which seeks balance and harmony) and drains the body’s energy resources.
But, thankfully, if this sounds like you, then there is hope! As the saying goes, if you wire it in, you can wire it out. Being a shock-absorber doesn’t have to define you or your relationships.
It is important point to remember that we all do what we do for a reason (or reasons). There is a reason why you are falling into this role too often, and you need to find out why to change it. We cannot shift our behavior unless we get to the root cause(s).
One of the main reasons I believe that many people “shock-absorb” is because of what I call our “wired for love” nature (our optimism bias), which I briefly mentioned above. We are often drawn to people’s pain or toxic behavior to restorebalance and reduce the threat to our survival. Like a weird noise while we are sleeping at night, these behaviors are jarring and we want to figure out what is happening to reestablish a sense of peace. However, along the way, our emotions and entanglements get the better of us, things get even more unbalanced, and everyone ends up suffering! The reality is that no one benefits from constant shock absorbing.
How does this become a habit? Someone who shock absorbs regularly has gotten into the habit of doing anything to reduce conflict in their relationships for at least 9 weeks or 63 days, which is the time it takes to wire a pattern into the brain that will change our behavior. (For more on this see my latest research and check out my book Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess.)This habit may have come about with good intentions; however, as I am sure you well know, good intentions can backfire! Peace at any cost often comes at a major cost, including stealing your mental peace and ability to function well. In fact, people who tend to shock absorb a lot in relationships become so used to
prioritizing other people’s needs over themselves that they can damage their mental health, physical health, and even the very relationships they are trying to protect!
Why is this the case? Thoughts are real, physical structures that contain, transmit and absorb real energy. When someone is being toxic, they are emitting a type of toxic energy. If we don’t resist this energy, we can absorb it into our brains and bodies. This creates imbalance, and the nonconscious mind deals with this by sending valuable little packets of information to the conscious mind every 10 seconds in the form of emotional and physical warning signals, which are designed to warn you to tune in to what is going on and control your reactions. These signals are those uncomfortable feelings we get when we feel we are being manipulated or are in a challenging or threatening situation. If we don’t pay attention to these signals, capture our thoughts and analyze them, we can build this pain into our brain, mind and body. Very soon, we can become entangled in the toxicity, which in turn can lead to feelings of frustration, resentment, and anger, which will affect our overall wellbeing.
But, as I said above, this doesn’t have to be the end of the story. We can literally rewire these “shock absorbing” patterns in cycles of 63 days, which will do wonders for our mental and physical health, including helping us develop a better perspective on what’s actually going on in our life and relationships.
To do this, I recommend using my 5-step mind-management process, called the Neurocycle, which is based on over 30 years of research and practice. These steps are:
- STEP 1: GATHER AWARENESS of your shock absorbing mindsets and how they are making you feel mentally and physically. Ask yourself questions like:
- Do I feel I am responsible for making everyone happy?
- Do I feel I am responsible for mediating arguments?
- Do I feel I am responsible for keeping the peace?
- Do I feel I am responsible for maintianing the harmony at home, school or work?
- Do I feel I am justifying other people’s behavior to blunt the impact of what’s happening?
- Do I feel I am taking on more responsibility because I don’t feel others are competent enough?
- Do I feel overburdened, anxious and resentful in this relationship?
- Would I be embarrassed if others knew about the bad behavior I put up with to avoid conflict?
- Do I feel I am being manipulated? Why/how?
- Is this relationship sparking joy or confusion? How does this person make me feel when I am around them? Do I feel exposed/vulnerable?
- What do I feel in my body when I am around this person?
- STEP 2: REFLECT. Be curious about what you gathered awareness of above. Ask yourself why, and answer and discuss this with yourself as though you are talking to another person. Do you perhaps have a distorted version of what a “good person” should do? Is this based on certain cultural or religious assumptions you have? Your upbringing? Your expectations? Do you wonder what would happen if you weren’t here? Do you fear conflict? Explore these feelings, but don’t spend too much time on them, or you may end up ruminating on the negative.
- STEP 3: WRITE. This will help you organize your reflections and thinking.
- STEP 4: RECHECK. Look at what you reflected on and wrote down. What patterns do you notice? Triggers? What thought “antidotes” or new thought patterns and behaviors do you want to see in your relationships? For example, do you need to get past the fear that if you don’t shock absorb, then things will fall apart in some way? Are you not considering the fact that this may not be bad thing, as consequences are one way we learn and grow?
- STEP 5: ACTIVE REACH. This is a statement or action you use to practice what you have learned from the above 4 steps. This can be as simple as a statement reminding you that you are not responsible for the feelings of others and are not just there to make them happy. You can also practice releasing control; for example, you can walk away from the person in question, say nothing, or say that you have reached your limit and put up a boundary.
Indeed, clear boundaries are important in all our relationships—these are the foundation of a healthy rapport, and let the people in your life know what you can and can’t handle. You can figure out your boundaries by paying attention the warning signals that certain words or behaviors trigger in you.
Gratitude work is also a great way to heal yourself and learn how to resist the urge to shock absorb. You can develop gratitude as a buffer against shock absorbing and its impact because it helps you feel more empowered by stimulating the amygdala in the brain. When activated in this way, the amygdala can help balance emotional perceptions, develop a healthy perspective around issues, and help with mental processing.
In fact, recent findings on the neural correlates of gratitude show that it involves both an emotional and cognitive response, activating a healthy, coordinated and balanced brainwave response in the medial prefrontal cortex and anterior cingulate. When the brain is activated in this way, we make better decisions, we have increased cognitive flexibility and resilience, and our intellect increases, which is pretty great when it comes to mitigating the effects of shock absorbing! We can even become better at predicting the effects and impacts of our own actions on each other, which is going to make us stronger at resisting the urge to shock absorb in a relationship. Some ways to practice this are statements like:
- Yes, … happened and angered me, but … also happened today, which made me so thankful.
- I am grateful my empathy will actually increase as I put up boundaries; I will develop better insight into why that person is doing what they are doing and have more mental and emotional capacity to be there for them.

Remember, your issues are not WHO YOU ARE! You are a child of God made to harmonize in love!
