I think that doctors and pharmaceutical industries have a vested interest in selling drugs that aren't needed. No disagreement there. Many people would like to take a pill to solve all kinds of problems when they are simply reluctant to fully see themselves. Numbing out can be a serious problem, whether it's drugs, sex, overeating, drinking, video games, name your choice. And I do know some people that need to stay on meds just to function in the world because they have a chemical imbalance. No judgment, just their experience.
Jane - We're in disagreement about overcoming fear, and I'm alright with that. Ultimately we have to face ourselves and move through whatever issues of fear/doubt that we have, but I've found in my life that it's enormously
beneficial to have help from others (i.e. friends, mystics, therapists, coaches, teachers, online forums, etc) so that I can see my own blindspots and/or get support to move through a tough issue.
For one thing, people tend to be harder on themselves when they go it alone. Also it's easier to fool ourselves. Relationships are a great litmus test to see if we're conflict-free or still have something we're projecting onto others. If I don't like being in relationships because I get triggered, or I can't stand something about someone else, I know I'm the one with an issue.
And what if our conflict is actually not being able to ask for help from others? I recently worked with one client who felt so abused/neglected that he felt like he didn't trust anyone and had to do everything himself, because no one understood him or would be willing to support him. Just his direct experience from his past which he was projecting onto everyone now - normal stuff for everyone. We played a few times, and now he is actively asking for what he wants from all kinds of people and his business is taking off. It's like his perception on life has totally shifted. Could he have done all this by himself? Possibly, but he is 57 and hadn't done it by himself up until now. I'm immensely grateful for all the people who have helped me throughout my life, because it would have been a much rougher road without them.
And just to be more clear about the upcoming announcement. This isn't going to be just a few human leaders making an announcement and that's it. Then we would still be wondering whether to believe them or not, just like now. When they do this, there will have to be a real "coming out", meaning you will have to be able to see the aliens, in physical form, see their spacecraft, etc - actual, physical evidence. There will also be more disclosure about all kinds of things, including human history and the aliens influence, because so many questions will want to be answered, including about any fear-based issues like abductions, etc. And there will still be people who don't believe it even after all that. There are plenty of people who would discount seeing a UFO if it landed on their house, and there will be more public people that will come out (like Jimmy Carter did) and speak about their experiences to lend validity to the truth.
It's funny how we might not believe something, but if a celebrity that we trust tells us something (i.e. Oprah, Ellen, a president, sports figure, etc) then we can be more inclined to believe it.
