The Tarahumara and the Power of Chia Seeds


After hundreds of years chia seeds have had a resurgence due to their wide-ranging health and nutritional benefits, such as gastrointestinal health, detoxification, blood sugar stabilization, mental clarity, and sustained endurance.

While the medicinal and nutritional properties of chia seeds have been purported for many years, this superfood soared in popularity after its mention in the New York Times best seller Born to Run , which describes chia seeds as an almost “magical” indigenous dietary staple of the Tarahumara Indians, a tribe of ultra runners that dwell deep in the Copper Canyons of Mexico. The Tarahumara run  for hundreds of miles at top speed seemingly without effort — at times for pure enjoyment — in nothing more than sandals as they have for centuries, alongside the elite ultra running legend, Scott Jurek.


The specific vital nutrients that give chia seeds their superfood status and makes them so nutrient-dense include Omega-3 essential fatty acids, antioxidants, protein, calcium, iron, potassium, vitamins A, B, E, and D, and other trace minerals. Just two tablespoons of chia seeds contains ten grams of fiber and six grams of protein, and they provide more calcium than milk, more Omega-3s than salmon, more iron than spinach, and more antioxidants than blueberries. It is easy for one to see why Aztec ancient tribes used chia seeds to pay tributes and taxes to priests and nobility.


The following is a list of the myriad of ways chia seeds can enhance athletic performance and our overall health, as well as some simple ways to can incorporate chia seeds into your diet.


Because chia seeds absorb thirty times their weight in water, they help regulate body fluid levels and retain electrolytes, both key in the battle against dehydration. For long workouts in high heat and humidity, chia seeds are a handy way to prolong hydration.

Provides Sustained Energy

Chia seeds are incredibly absorbent, expanding up to ten times their original size when soaked in water and forming a gel-like substance. Because of this gel-forming action, chia seeds slow the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar, meaning the carbs you eat will be able to fuel your body for longer periods of time. The regulation of carbohydrate release also stabilizes blood sugar levels.

Anti-inflammatory Benefits

Omega-3 essential fatty acids are a proven antiinflammatory, and chia seeds are loaded with them. It has been discovered that the Aztecs consumed chia seeds to alleviate aches and joint pain. The essential fatty acids found in chia seeds alleviate skin problems, promote good neurological health, and can help improve the prognosis of various mental health conditions.

Supports Healthy Weight Maintenance

Because chia seeds are very high in fiber and nutritionally dense, they help use feel full faster and longer when we eat them. The absorbent qualities regulate carbohydrate conversion, preventing blood sugar spikes and providing sustained energy. Recent studies have shown that, in addition reducing body fat, chia seeds also help prevent high cholesterol and high triglycerides.

Accelerated and Improved Workout Recovery

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, while antioxidants are a powerful defense against free radicals. Chia seeds are full of both. Eat them soon after your workout to jumpstart recovery.


How to Prepare Chia Seeds

Chia seeds can be added to enhance many recipes. Unlike flax seeds, they do not have to be presoaked in order to be digestible. However, it is worth noting that sprouting chia seeds will only increase their nutritional benefits and digestibility even further. Pour a tablespoon or two in a favorite smoothie, salad, or beverage.


A popular preparation method, adopted from the Tarahumara Indians, is to make a chia seed drink energy drink, by soaking two tablespoons in a glass of water or raw fruit juice for about five to ten minutes. As a general rule, one part chia seeds to seven parts liquid will works well. The chia seeds will absorb the liquid and form into a gelatinous mixture. The seeds have a mild and a light nutty flavor, and a cooked tapioca like consistency.

Raw Organic Chia Fresca Recipe



1 cup water
1 tablespoon organic chia seeds
2 tablespoons raw and organic fresh lemon or lime juice.
2 teaspoons raw local honey
½ tsp unrefined natural salt (optional, for additional mineral and electrolyte replacement and support)


Stir the seeds into the water and allow them to soak for at least 10-15 minutes. Add lemon or lime juice and raw honey and whisk.

Full Transcript: 

Hi, I’m Joy Jackson, the Backyard Mystic. This is the eighth video in a limited series exploring concepts related to extraterrestrial disclosure and Law of One philosophy as revealed in selected episodes of Gene Roddenberry‘s classic science fiction television series “Star Trek: The Next Generation.

In a previous segment, we addressed the philosophical concept of service to self, and in other segments we have touched on aspects of universal spiritual principles. In this segment we take a new approach — going boldly where we haven’t gone before — to explore Law of One philosophy in full scope as it is depicted in and supported by — expressly, thematically, and sometimes metaphorically — Star Trek TNG. Engage!


What is the Law of One? It is a philosophy that holds that everything we know of in the universe — and everything we can know of in all of existence — consists of the same spiritual energy from a common consciousness, and that consciousness strives toward reintegration into a perfect and unified whole. The Law of One philosophy is described as coming to us from beyond our current common perception of existence, comprising twelve precepts, or Universal Laws, that govern the flow of this spiritual energy, much like the mainstream laws of physics we adopt to help us to explain the behavior of matter and energy we observe in our physical world.

Through our understanding and employment of these Universal Laws we can see better the underlying mechanisms of our universe and become more successful co-creators of our own reality. The importance of these principles stems from the ubiquity of their relevance in our lives.

Here are the twelve Universal Laws…

  1. The Universal Law of Unity
  2. The Universal Law of Relativity
  3. The Universal Law of Perpetual Transformation
  4. The Universal Law of Compensation
  5. The Universal Law of Vibration
  6. The Universal Law of Attraction
  7. The Universal Law of Correspondence
  8. The Universal Law of Cause and Effect
  9. The Universal Law of Action
  10. The Universal Law of Polarity
  11. The Universal Law of Rhythm
  12. The Universal Law of Gender

[That’s a lot to think about!] Despite the fundamental resonance and elegant simplicity of the philosophy, study and appreciation of the Law of One in depth is a sophisticated undertaking requiring — at least — a lifetime, but for those of you new to it as a spiritual perspective, it may be helpful to group and contrast these twelve Universal Laws using more familiar rubrics from our modern lexicon…

“Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”


[Please note that these are not hard and fast categories, but rather groupings by prominent aspects of each law]

[Here we go!]


The first group of Universal Laws we can examine within the Law of One serve to explain and expand our understanding of the true nature of existence and the interaction of spiritual energy with all living things — the essence of life itself…

The Universal Law of Unity — the guiding precept, that all is one and that all things that exist are ultimately of the same consciousness within many forms and configurations. This latter aspect of the Law of Unity, the idea of “infinite diversity in infinite combinations”, is a philosophical fundamental that Roddenberry’s Vulcan character Mr. Spock introduced to Star Trek audiences back in the Original Series, and it continues to manifest itself in Next Generation storylines.


Captain Picard and his crew discover this oneness when they uncover secrets of the human genetic code in the critically-acclaimed Season 6 episode “The Chase”. We will explore this episode in greater depth in our final segment.

The Universal Law of Compensation — that every action in the universe is compensated with an energy equal to that invested, an idea intertwined with the Law of Cause & Effect and the concept of Karma. Quite simply, we reap what we sow.


The flow and return of spiritual energy play out with high drama in Season 6’s “Man of the People”.


The Universal Law of Correspondence — that all there is in the physical world has a corresponding principle in the etheric world. All one experiences in their external reality is a reflection of one’s inner world or spiritual existence, hence the saying, “As above, so below.”

Commander Riker’s inner and outer worlds connect as TNG Season 2 ends on a down note with “Shades of Gray”, widely held as the WORST Next Generation episode, but full of resonance with this important theme nonetheless.


The Universal Law of Cause and Effect — known as karma in Buddhist philosophy, that every one of our actions, thoughts, words, and emotions ultimately begets an equal reaction or consequence in our lives.

This theme plays out subtly as the events of Captain Picard’s past command raise challenges many years later in “The Battle” from Season 1.


The next group of Universal Laws concern the nature of our personal freedom as sentient beings and the importance and consequences of the choices we make.

The Universal Law of Relativity — that everything is relative and that our experience in the physical world is built necessarily from comparisons and contrasts, comprehension of which can allow one to change one’s experience of reality by a shift in one’s perspective.

The Enterprise crew struggles to comprehend and respond when they stumble into a confrontation with a new life form totally alien in nature in the first season episode “Home Soil”.


The Universal Law of Perpetual Transformation — that all spiritual energy and consciousness is in a constant state of movement and change, giving our positive thoughts, emotions, and actions the power to transform lower vibrations into higher forms.

Heralded as one of the very best Next Generation stories in seven years, the two-part episode “Unification” sees the return of Mr. Spock from the Original Series, now a Federation ambassador embracing logic, positive thought, and implacable will on a covert mission of peace.



The Universal Law of Attraction — that the spiritual energy produced by our thoughts, emotions, and actions attracts like energy in return. Positive energies attract positive energies and negative energies attract negative ones. As with all of the Universal Laws, this principle applies to both individual and collective consciousness.

In “Liaisons” from Season 6 Picard, Worf, and Troi are compelled to reflect on aspects of their own nature as they host an alien delegation during a diplomatic exchange.


The Universal Law of Polarity — that everything exists along a continuum between poles — light and dark, hot and cold, love and hate, the divine masculine and the divine feminine, yin energy and yang energy — and that we define ourselves and our existence by the conscious choices we make to align ourselves in particular directions along our spiritual path.


TNG Season 3’s “The Survivors” tells a powerful story of beliefs, consequence, and the choice between light and darkness as the Enterprise visits a ravaged planet.

Our final category of the Universal Laws within Law of One philosophy holds the keys to happiness, an understanding of the spiritual workings of the universe that promotes harmonious existence.

The Universal Law of Vibration — that all matter, energy, thought, emotion, and consciousness in the universe has its own unique frequency of spiritual vibration. The reality we create is a reflection of our dominant vibration — manifested by our feelings, thoughts, and actions — and we build relationships with parts of the universe with which we are in spiritual resonance.

The metaphor of resonance is prominent in “Galaxy’s Child” from TNG Season 4, as the Starship Enterprise encounters a space going creature that puts the vessel in jeopardy.


The Universal Law of Rhythm — that everything in the universe moves to specific rhythms, much like natural cycles — our cycles of life and death, the seasons, the tides, and astrological cycles, to name a fe

Picard’s hostage negotiations on a distant planet stall in the first-season episode “Too Short a Season” when the aging Starfleet admiral in charge reveals his covert plan to cheat time and death, going rogue in an effort to correct a grave mistake from 40 years in the past.


The Universal Law of Gender — that all of creation manifests itself in ways we can categorize as both masculine and feminine in quality, each with its own strengths. To appreciate this continuum is to know how to be a whole and harmonious being within our collective.

In “The Outcast” from Season 5, Commander Riker meets and connects with a member of an androgynous alien species that has repressed all expression of masculine and feminine gender as part of its cultural evolution.


The Universal Law of Action — that one must take action in alignment with one’s own goals and desires in order to manifest them in one’s reality. This important precept of the Law of One philosophy in the Final Frontier of the 24th Century is woven throughout the Next Generation and well demonstrated in three significant episodes, “Tapestry” from our previous segment, “The First Duty”, and the dimension-crossing “Yesterday’s Enterprise” — all stories of understanding the universe and our role in it and acting in alignment with one’s beliefs with the highest standards of integrity in order to attain one’s goals and make a brighter future.

New Moon in Taurus, Tuesday, May 15, 2018


We will have a new moon in Taurus on Tuesday, May, 15, 2018.

New moons represent the end of one lunar cycle and the beginning of another, bringing us supportive energies for fresh starts and new beginnings.

Because Taurus, the sign of the Bull and the Master Builder, understands our creative force comes from within, this darkest phase of the moon will inspire us to lay new foundations for our most heartfelt dreams and endeavors.

The planets of action, Mars, Saturn, and Pluto, in the sign of practical Capricorn, will be joining us during this transit as well, strongly urging us to to make necessary changes in our lives.


It is also worth noting that immediately following this new moon cycle, Uranus, the planet of sudden change, will enter Taurus, with the potential to launch us into a radically new direction, ready or not! 


This new moon transit will affect those with Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius, and Leo in their personal charts, as well as those having personal planets, points, or ascendant signs near the 22° to 26° of the fixed cross.

The square aspect between Mars and Uranus affects those who have planets or horoscope points at 29° of cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) or 0° of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) the most.

Backyard Mystic’s Guide to Star Trek: TNG #7 – Multidimensionality – Q – SSP – Law of One

Full Video Transcript: 

Hi, I’m Joy Jackson, the Backyard Mystic. This is the sixth video in a limited series exploring concepts related to extraterrestrial disclosure and Law of One philosophy as revealed in selected episodes of Gene Roddenberry‘s classic science fiction television series “Star Trek: The Next Generation”.

In our previous segment, we delved deep into the inner workings of the brain and cognition as we focused on mind control in the Next Generation universe, comparing it to our intelligence from the Secret Space Program. If you missed our last video presentation, be sure to check it out.

Our topic for today shifts focus outward into the universe to explore multidimensionality — existence beyond our common perceptions of reality.


Consider being able to go wherever you want, whenever you want, whenever in time you want, and do whatever you want to do, all with minimal oversight or constraint and the ability to recreate your reality to suit your changing whim if you ever have reason to reconsider. This is the life of Q, Star Trek TNG’s quintessential multidimensional entity, an upstart member of a collective of powerful beings, known as the Continuum, who understand time as nonlinear, perceive existence outside a binary state of life or death, and command a panoply of virtually limitless powers.



Examining TNG’s last — and perhaps greatest — story first, the series finale “All Good Things…” opens with Captain Picard’s consciousness jumping inexplicably between three distinct points in past, present, and future time. Picard becomes aware of a mysterious spacetime anomaly six years in the past, and its investigation diverts them from their original mission and initial encounter with Q. In the present, the anomaly is present in a diminished form, and twenty-five years in the future it is undetectable until an elderly retired Picard reunites with his former crew and scans for it actively. As the mystery unfolds, Q appears to challenge Picard. He informs the Captain that the Continuum’s trial of humanity that began with the first encounter had merely adjourned but never concluded, and now the very existence of the human race is in Picard’s hands.

Q’s cryptic news prompts Picard to enlist the help of his crewmates across the years, and together they learn that the anomaly flows through time in a direction counter to that which humans perceive. With this revelation, Picard confronts Q, and the being transports Picard back billions of years in time, where the anomaly has grown so vast it covers an entire quadrant of our galaxy, effectively destroying Earth and humanity before they ever come into being.

Returning to each point in Picard’s timeline, the Captain convinces all three Enterprise crews to travel to the anomaly and use their ships to surround it with a static warp bubble, putting the three vessels in existential peril that not all of them can survive. Fortunately, Picard’s plan works; the anomaly is isolated and extinguished, the Continuum is satisfied that humanity can evolve given Picard’s solution despite his “limited” perception, and Picard’s consciousness returns to the present with renewed faith, gratitude, and sense of purpose.

According to L/L Research, Secret Space Program insider Corey Goode, and other sources, we are in contact with evolved beings that perceive and experience time as non-linear and bidirectional.

What must it be like when entities experience time unconstrained by direction or connection? For beings for whom time is more fluid, there must be staggering implications for the definition of causality. How must their existence be enhanced by perception and control of time beyond that which we ourselves currently possess? Do such beings influence and manipulate events through time to further their goals as perceived in aggregate?

Disclosed SSP reports describe a group of benevolent noncorporeal multidimensional beings of luminous energy, referred to as the Sphere Being Alliance, a civilization evolved and advanced to a level that challenges our comprehension. The Sphere Beings seem to perceive time with exactly these degrees of freedom, while still engaging here in our current reality with species of more limited scope.




Shot through his artificial heart by an energy weapon, Captain Picard dies at the outset of the Sixth Season episode, “Tapestry”. The late Enterprise captain awakens in a shimmering white void; Q is present, insisting it is the Afterlife and that he is the Supreme Being. Picard balks. Q shrugs off his incredulity, chiding the Captain’s decision to pick a reckless bar fight during his Starfleet Academy days, a choice that led to him being stabbed and later fit with the coronary replacement that left him susceptible to the blast that ended his Enterprise command — and cost him his life — years later.

When Picard expresses regret over his brash youth, Q transports him back in time and gives him the opportunity to change his ways. Living his Academy times over again, new choices — including backing down from the fight — start to change Picard’s reality, which unfolds differently than the events he remembers, and when Q returns him to the “present” at the time of his death — Picard is alive and well again aboard the Enterprise, albeit as an unremarkable junior grade astrophysics officer, having never attained his captaincy or experienced all the adventures of his storied career.

Understanding the value of wisdom gained from poor choices and accepting the pointlessness of regret, Picard tells Q he chooses dying as a leader over living as a drone. Q returns Picard to his original existence and grants him a new lease on life, as he awakens in Dr. Crusher’s Sickbay, recovering from what should have been a mortal wound. Picard is unsure if his experience was real or imagined; only the value of his new perspective on existence is certain.

Given the complex nature of the relationship we believe the SSP’s Sphere Beings have with time, if such abilities to navigate the universe are within the realm of sentient beings, then it seems likely that the idea of parallel timelines in the “Many Worlds” sense — in which the consequences of all possible events play out colaterally — must be its logical corollary, and the perception of parallel events in aggregate is the essence of a multidimensional existence outside our common binary state. By necessity, their consciousness spans and frames multiple “lanes” on the highway of spacetime, Their actions influencing events in any particular timeline are likely perceived not in isolation but as a changing element in an infinite set of independent analogous outcomes; their evaluation of their attainment of goals must employ similarly fuzzy logic. Therefore, multidimensional existence truly affords one “the big picture” in superlative terms.



In “True Q”, TNG Season 6 Episode 6, when the crew discovers that a young Starfleet intern working aboard the Enterprise harbors incredible emerging powers to control spacetime and alter reality, Q arrives. He explains to Picard that the young woman, an orphan adopted and raised on Earth, is actually of Q heritage, and he has been sent by the Continuum to investigate her. If Q determines the girl is “true Q” he intends to bring her to back to reside within the Continuum, where the Q can oversee her and teach her responsible use of her powers; if she is determined to be “something else” — a human hybrid of some kind — Q is under orders from the Continuum to execute her, as an undisciplined and inexperienced entity with the powers of the Q could theoretically destroy the galaxy. Picard takes umbrage at the news, informing Q that despite the entity’s near-limitless power, Starfleet will defend the young woman’s safety and freedom to live as she will. Q decides the girl is indeed Q and says the Continuum will grant her freedom to live among humans if she abstains from using her incredible powers. The intern is soon forced by circumstance to use her ability to manipulate spacetime in order to save a planet from disaster, and Q is there to bear witness; after offering a despondent farewell, the young Q leaves with her elder to join the Continuum and experience a new phase of existence among her own kind.

On Star Trek, Q demonstrates powers from the breathtaking to the absurd; time and space are his playground, bounded only by his imagination and whims. The abilities of higher-dimensional entities disclosed in SSP intelligence are less will understood but may indeed be just as great. Reports of teleportation and travel across great distances have been disclosed, and evolution to configure matter and control time without the need for technology has been rumored. This suggests extraterrestrial guardians of humanity such as the Sphere Beings are members of a multidimensional civilization that comprehends the nature of matter, the laws of physics, and the dimensions of time and space with a sophistication orders of magnitude greater than ours at the current point in our evolution.

Full Moon in Scorpio, April 29, 2018




On Sunday, April 29, 2018 we will have a full moon in Scorpio, with the Sun in opposition in the sign of Taurus.

The full moon is a time when our dreams tend to become more vivid and lucid, and our emotions tend to run higher. It is also a time of culmination, and the assurance of completion of that which began at the prior new moon.

Taurean sun energy moves us to find healthier ways to feel more grounded and secure, and to cultivate gratitude for the simple joys and pleasures in life.

Meanwhile, a Scorpio moon draws our attention inwards towards our life’s complexities, intangibles, and mysteries
This full moon provides us with an invitation to harmonize these two energies.

The full moon is a supportive time to express ourselves, and for illuminating issues that were already there that have been left unresolved. A Mars-Pluto alignment, and it’s square North node during this lunation will color the picture with elements of intensity, transformation and growth. These potent energies could move us out of our comfort zones with a bit of a jolt, that could feel disorienting or disruptive initially. However, the balance with Saturn during this transit reminds us that we must create solid foundations for anything in our lives we wish to sustain toward our long-term growth and success.

This lunar phase takes place at 9 degrees and 39 minutes of Scorpio, forming an opposition to the Sun at 9 degrees and 39 minutes Taurus, affecting people born with natal planets and points at approximately 6 to 14 degrees of the Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) the most.

The Taoist Diet – Ancient Wisdom for Modern Times


Diet is an important part of a Taoist’s spiritual practice. We are what we eat, and for this reason, Taoists look at diet as a integral part of general health and a fundamental part of their lifestyle. According to ancient Taoist philosophy, as we age, we gradually evolve to require learn to less and to avoid problematic foods.

The Chinese word “bigu” translates to “avoiding grains”, but it is far more complex than this. From the Zhuangzi:

“On Mount Kuyeh there dwells a spirit man whose skin is like congealed snow and who is gentle as a virgin. He does not eat any of the five grains, but inhales the wind and drinks the dew.”

Bigu, the aim of the highest and most ancient form of the Taoist diet, generally requires one to eat seasonally and locally, eliminating the consumption of grains, processed, artificial, toxic, and genetically modified and/or inhumanely sourced foods. Considering the number of diseases, food intolerances and allergies on the rise from consuming processed and genetically modified foods, there is valuable wisdom within the Bigu diet.


A Taoist uses food to balance their yin and yang balance and promote an overall state of well being. We find throughout history cultures and lineages that have eaten with their seasons, applying yin and yang to their eating principles. Human populations are diverse and expansive; thus, our dietary needs differ depending on your ancestry, environment,and daily activities. A Taoist diet being locally sourced makes it easy to adapt for people in different cultures and with different needs.

Yang foods are usually warm or hot, higher in density and calories. They are often used for extra energy, grounding, nourishment and for stimulating blood circulation.

Yin foods being lighter, are used to assist us in calming anxiety, detoxification, eliminating excessive energy, and cooling heat.

Regardless of the type of diet to which one adheres to, generally speaking, eating seasonally is really best for everyone — including Gaia. We ourselves tend to flow energetically with the seasons, so seasonal foods best help us nourish ourselves from within.


The Four Seasons


Yang energy is rises in the spring, when we, like Gaia, are blooming. In Spring we often crave more sunlight, and we begin to introduce more foods rich in balancing yin energy. Spring is also an especially good time to consume foods that assist in us detoxifying the liver and kidneys.

Summer ☀️ 

Summer is the season of yang energy. Yin food helps us to balance heat, while the hotter weather of summer gets our circulation flowing. Summer is a good time to seek out foods that strengthen the cardiovascular system heart and blood circulation.

Autumn 🍂 

Cold yin chi is rising in autumn as the hot yang energy of summer slips away. For immune support when transitioning from yang to yin, seek out local foods that cleanse, strengthen, and clear the lungs by reducing excess mucus production.

Winter ❄️ 

In Winter, we slow down prepare for restoration and hibernation. This season has us look to yin foods that nourish the blood, bones, and kidneys. We benefit at this time of year from maintaining our strength and immunity by spending time in nature each day, and also from mind/body exercise, such as Qi Gong, Tai Chi, or yoga. Because our digestive system can be a bit sluggish during wintertime, a little exercise, such as gentle walking before eating will help stoke the digestive fires. Mushrooms and adaptogens at this time of year are especially good for cleansing the intestines and boosting the immune system.

Other Taoist Diet Considerations

Taoists will avoid consuming any meat or dairy products that have been raised with unsustainable and inhumane practices, a they hold the utmost respect towards our food’s life cycle. A Taoist diet gives food and nature the same respect given towards our own bodies.

Part of a Taoist diet includes knowing where your food comes from and being aware of the entire process by which food is sourced. Our dietary needs are far more individual than many realize, so a Taoist diet also considers:

Detoxification from toxins and allergens.
Nutrient balance and the balance of probiotic foods that support the many different types of beneficial microbes and provide us with resistance to disease.
Physical activity.
The importance of full spectrum natural sunlight, unpolluted water, and exposure to nature.
Changing the constitution of diet relative to how we age.
The preparation and timing of the foods we consume.

From a Taoist perspective, because our wellness needs change and evolve with each season and life cycle, we need to be willing to change and adapt our diets and lifestyles accordingly as we evolve. For most, there will not be a one size fit all diet year round, and our diets will continue to shift and change relative to us.
Once we understand this, it opens us up to live more in the present and fluidly, as we use diet as an additional powerful tool in shaping oneself, and defining who we are on a myriad of levels.

Full Transcript:

Hi, I’m Joy Jackson, the Backyard Mystic. This is the sixth video in a limited series exploring concepts related to extraterrestrial disclosure and Law of One philosophy as revealed in selected episodes of Gene Roddenberry‘s classic science fiction television series “Star Trek: The Next Generation”.

In our previous segment, we branched out from our exploration of similarities between TNG and disclosed accounts from the Secret Space Program to examine the concept of service to self as depicted in Star Trek, framed in the context of Law of One philosophy.

Continuing on that path, we will now look at what the Law of One considers the most fundamental of challenges to free will, the employment of mind control techniques by extraterrestrial entities.

“I think, therefore I am.” Philosopher Rene Descartes’s axiom is regarded as a key foundation of modern Western thought, the idea that to question one’s own thoughts is proof of the existence not only of one’s mind but also of oneself. But where do our thoughts come from? Mainstream neuroscience describes the biological hardware and mechanisms employed during our cognition, when the excitable cells in our brains called neurons create the potentially limitless networks for electrochemical communication that give rise to every thought that anyone has ever had.

Our minds are powerful tools, and the thought of others subverting our control of our own cognition and actions is a chilling one. Given what we think we know about how the mind works, how might such mind control even be possible?

Biological attacks on the mind — potentially including psychic ones — would involve selective interference of nerve conduction and neurotransmission by other living beings using organic means.

Technological attacks on the mind would include everything from pharmaceuticals to nanotechnology that directly targets, interrupts, and supercedes the very thoughts that define us in the Cartesian sense.

Psychological attacks on the mind are understood to comprise exposures to specific conditioning stimuli with precision, repetition, and intensity to weaken the mind’s defenses and leave it open to malevolent outside influence.

Let’s take a look at each of these types of mind control as depicted in Star Trek: The Next Generation and disclosed by those inside the Secret Space Program…



When Captain Picard receives a top-secret coded transmission from an old comrade in the episode “Conspiracy” at the tail end of the Next Generation’s first season, he is summoned to a clandestine meeting of top-tier starship captains on a deserted mining planet and warned to keep a watchful eye on the Federations highest echelons. When his friend’s ship is destroyed, Picard takes the Starship Enterprise back to Earth to investigate matters at Starfleet Headquarters and assess the threat.

On Earth, command officers attempt to assuage Picard’s concerns, but there are subtle clues in their strange behavior that convince him and his senior officers to tread carefully. One admiral boards the Enterprise on a protocol visit and reveals the conspiracy during his attempted takeover of the starship. The top brass at Starfleet have been compromised, their minds controlled and their bodies supercharged by sentient species of parasitic exo-arthropods that burrow into human bodies and take over brain function by camping at the base of the brain. The hijacked Admiral attacks Riker, La Forge, and Worf before Dr. Crusher subdues him and discovers the alien inside.

Picard is undercover planetside with the alien-controlled admiralty when they reveal their takeover plot and plans for the invasion of Federation territory. A revived and recovered Riker arrives at HQ, feigning alien influence, and he helps Picard launch a sneak attack to turn the tables on the infiltrators and foil the aliens’ operation by locating and destroying the alien “mother creature” masquerading in the shadows as a humble Starfleet adjutant.

There seem to be no clear examples of mind control disclosed in SSP accounts that parallel directly the parasitic biological “hijacking” of sentients by sentients seen in TNG’s “Conspiracy”, but we do have accounts by insiders like Corey Goode about dangerous reptilian extraterrestrials who can control or assault outright the mind of another humanoid with their psychic attacks.



In “The Mind’s Eye” episode from the fourth season, Chief Engineer La Forge is abducted by Romulans while returning to the Enterprise by shuttlecraft from his vacation on the pleasure planet Risa. Romulan scientists exploit the sophisticated direct neural connections of the VISOR device he wears to see. They condition La Forge aggressively, reprogram him into an undercover assassin, and return him to his craft, receptive to their transmissions and under their direct control.

Back on the Enterprise, the brainwashed La Forge joins his fellow officers who are intervening as the Klingons quell problems on the the border of their empire. The Klingon ambassador and the local territorial governor investigate claims that the Federation is arming and assisting a rebel faction in Klingon space. With evidence mounting against them, the Starfleet crew discovers a false-flag operation by the Romulans to foment distrust and break the Klingon-Federation alliance, a fate La Forge is to seal by assassinating the Klingon governor while under the covert Romulan mind control.

Fortunately, Lt. Cmdr. Data uncovers the truth in time and Lt. Worf intercedes to prevent the shooting. The Klingon ambassador is found to be in league with the Romulans, who retreat, and he is left at the “mercy” of the Empire. This course of events leaves the recovering La Forge noticeably shaken by his harrowing mind control experience as he returns to duty.

Levels of mind control established through both chemical and sensory stimuli exposure have been part of various conventional covert psy-ops programs for decades. Project MKUltra may be the most infamous of these, using a range of techniques with pharmaceuticals toward a variety of goals, from supersoldier enhancement to population pacification. While neither as sophisticated nor as invasive as those seen in Star Trek, these disclosed techniques for technological mind control are potentially just as dangerous to our freedom. That said, Corey Goode in his interviews confirms the use of sophisticated nanotechnology in the creation of “programmable lifeforms”, such as groups of Grey ETs, cadres of biological robots following complex behavioral scripts installed in them by other beings.



TNG’s fifth-season episode “The Game” opens with Commander Riker’s return to the Enterprise after his own eventful vacation, again on the pleasure planet Risa. (What is it about these pleasure planets?!) Riker is still savoring his serendipitous encounter with an alluring Ktarian woman he met there. One trinket he picked up on vacation was a gift from the woman, a simple yet compelling augmented reality game played by neural connection using a small wearable headset. In typical Risian fashion, the apparently innocuous electronic pastime — a sort of hands-free 24th-century Tetris — rewards the brain’s pleasure center with each level accomplished. Riker shows the game to all his crewmates, and replicated headsets soon find their way all over the ship.

Of course, the game is far from harmless, as it subliminally conditions its quickly addicted users to be susceptible to mind control through suggestion much like hypnosis while being lulled into a sense of complacency and contentment, a secret takeover plot by Ktarian operatives targeting the Enterprise. The only Enterprise crewmember invulnerable to the effects of the game, the android Data, is rendered inoperative by Dr. Crusher while under mind control herself, as the covert mission advances.

Crusher’s son, Wesley, a Starfleet Academy cadet visiting the Enterprise, surmises that something is wrong with his mother and the other senior officers, and he enlists the help of an Ensign Lefler, the last woman standing unaffected by the game, to uncover the Ktarian plot. The duo find and affect repairs on Data, and manage to evade the compromised Enterprise crew for some time. Eventually, Wesley and Lefler are captured and brought under control, but the revived Data improvises a means to short-circuit the game’s hypnotic effect and liberate his crewmates. Picard captures the Ktarian vessel captained by the agent overseeing the takeover, and he brings its crew to justice.


Corey Goode has shed light on the Draco Alliance, a negative faction co-opting part of the Secret Space Program to assist them in the subjugation of populations throughout our galaxy; the Draco combine abduction with mind control conditioning to steer influential individuals to their advantage — all without abductees becoming aware that they were taken or programmed. These affected victims carry on as normal but are left compelled to carry out assigned tasks when triggered by specific events, stealthy secret weapons in a covert war of subversion and control.

New Moon in Aries & Mercury Stations Direct, Sunday, April 15, 2018


There will be a New Moon in the sign of Aries, this Sunday, April 15th. The New Moon is a good time of the month for us to start new projects, make new plans, and to prepare for new beginnings.
The New Moon transiting in the sign of Aries will be a supportive period for expressing the best qualities of The Ram. We may feel inspired to try something innovative or new, to find our courage, and to take charge of any areas our lives where we may have given away too much of our power.

With Aries being the first sign of the zodiac, this New Moon will be particularly  ripe with potential for fresh starts, acting on a instinct, and for taking a calculated risks. The Ram learns through action and experience, so this might be the perfect time for a little break in our routine or for a little adventure.
It is also worth noting this New Moon will align with Uranus, and form a square with Pluto, which means we should avoid making rash decisions or impulsive moves. However, the New Moon’s trine with Saturn this month rewards us for carefully thinking our plans through, and taking things cautiously.


Mercury stations direct on the same day, which may also bring some communication confusion or mishaps if communications are rushed or forced. It is wise for us to to allow a day or two before moving forward with  projects or ideas that have been in the works.

This lunar phase occurs at 26 degrees and 2 minutes of Aries, affecting people born with personal planets and points at approximately 22 to 30 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) most.

Backyard Mystic’s Guide to Star Trek: TNG #5 – Service to Self – Secret Space Program – Law of One

Watch Full Video Here: Backyard Mystic’s Guide to Star Trek: TNG #5 – Service to Self – SSP – Law of One

Full  Transcript:

Hi, I’m Joy Jackson, the Backyard Mystic. This is the fifth video in a limited series exploring concepts related to extraterrestrial disclosure and Law of One philosophy as revealed in selected episodes of Gene Roddenberry‘s classic science fiction television series “Star Trek: The Next Generation”.

So far in our survey of Star Trek TNG, we have explored the operation of galactic alliances like the Federation, the possibilities of time travel and parallel universes, the concepts of artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, transhumanism, and the [potential] impact of a variety advanced technologies.

Now we will focus on the philosophical concept of service to self as Star Trek presents it — beings acting outside of alignment with unity, harmony, and free will — to see how on-screen depictions compare with our understanding of Law of One philosophy today, as it has come to us from various sources beyond our planet and our physical reality.

Philosophically speaking, “service to self” subsumes all acts by sentient beings outside of alignment with unity, harmony, and free will — out of alignment with the Law of One.

What is the Law of One? It is a set of twelve universal spiritual and philosophical principles that govern our reality. The guiding principle of the Law of One is that of unity, that all is one, and that all things that exist are ultimately of the same consciousness with many forms and configurations. This is an idea that Star Trek has advanced since its early days in the Original Series. Followers of Law of One philosophy affirm that planet Earth is in an evolutionary period of learning and mastering this Universal Law, appreciating that every action, thought, and choice has a corresponding effect in our collective consciousness as well as our own individual lives.

According to our multidimensional guardians and teachers inside benevolent factions of the Secret Space Program, the greatest good that humanity can generate stems from service aligned with the Law of One, and the greatest infringements on this universal law are challenges to the free will of other beings — or any activities that do not take love and light into consideration. Entities who have yet to accept that there is no separation between the self and others when compassion, sensitivity, and empathy are embraced take a darker path we call “service to self”.

Let’s look at some examples encountered by the crew of the Enterprise on its continuing mission…



As Next Generation’s first season draws to a close, in the episode “Skin of Evil” the Enterprise crew receives an emergency distress signal from Counselor Troi and her pilot, whose shuttlecraft has crash-landed on a desolate planet. When the ship’s rescue team arrives, they find Troi and her comrade alive but trapped within the shuttle, cut off by a bizarre energy field that prevents matter-energy transport and enveloped completely by an amoebic alien lifeform that calls itself Armus. When the team tries to reach Troi, Armus [draws its inky, amorphous form into a vaguely humanoid shape and] blocks their way; when they try to skirt the alien’s obstacle, Armus murders Security Chief Yar with a psychokinetic blast and threatens to kill Troi and her pilot as well.

During tense dialogues with the creature, punctuated at points by its shocking and sadistic actions aimed at other crewmembers, Armus reveals to Troi that he is a concentrated physical manifestation of malevolence, sloughed off and abandoned by an ancient alien population seeking to evolve to a higher state of existence.

Armus’s cruel games continue until Troi senses empathically that the creature derives psychic energy from the negative emotions its actions elicit in others. She communicates her discovery to the crew, who learn that by distracting the creature sufficiently they can cause the force field around the shuttle to abate. Captain Picard himself engages with Armus, affording his crew an opportunity to mount another rescue attempt using the transporter, ending with the successful retrieval of the hostages. He issues a planetwide quarantine and leaves Armus alone again with no one upon whom to inflict pain or bring woe.

According to insiders within the Secret Space Program, there are sentient etheric entities similar in nature to Armus that inhabit our galaxy, feeding off of negative energy and emotions, known as louche (or “loosh”) energy. [We see this same Trek trope in Season 5’s “Time’s Arrow”.] In this episode Armus may have been created by such beings striving to release their attachment to negative energy in an effort to ascend spiritually, but It is unclear if they were aware of Armus’ existence or whether his abandonment was intentional or an unavoidable consequence of their evolution.



In the fourth season’s second episode, “Where Silence Has Lease”, the Starship Enterprise becomes trapped in a mysterious black void in space. Without stars and other spatial references, the empty expanse foils the crew’s attempts to navigate and escape.

Suddenly presented with an enemy Romulan warship that is too easily dispatched — and — with equal improbability immediately thereafter — a friendly Starfleet vessel that turns out to be an empty simulacrum, the Captain becomes suspicious. When portals to normal space suddenly appear on the ship’s sensors and then close before the Enterprise can reach them, Picard takes umbrage at being toyed with, stops chasing the sensor ghosts, and sends out a hail demanding a parley with whomever is orchestrating these ruses.

The ship’s captor presents himself, an extradimensional being called Nagilum who pokes and prods the Enterprise and its crew without remorse or regard for their rights as sentient beings — to fatal effect in one instance. Nagilum claims his “experiments” are an attempt to explore the the concept of death and the “limited existence” of humanoids, and he informs Picard that half of the ship’s crew may perish in the process.

Picard refuses to submit to the alien’s whim, and after consulting with his officers and informing the crew, initiates the Enterprise’s self-destruct sequence rather than let his people suffer under Naligum’s scrutiny. Unable to stay the Captain’s course of action, Nagilum suspends his experiments on the Enterprise crew, resigned to the idea that he has nothing in common with humanoids. Picard points out that Starfleet adopts its own mission of exploration and discovery, and they achieve similar goals with markedly different standards and practices.

In terms of Law of One philosophy, Nagilum is another example of a being polarized in service to self. He has yet to arrive at the understanding that we are all one; he views all others as separate and himself as superior, and to evolve he must activate the heart center, the source of light, love, compassion, and empathy. SSP intelligence describes groups of sentient beings with aims and perspectives similar to Nagilum’s in TNG, most notably factions like the Draco Alliance with goals of conquest and a belief that might makes right; these groups have yet to understand that to harm another is to harm oneself.



In TNG Season 6’s “Schisms” insomnia and mysterious symptoms plague the crew of the Enterprise, who realize they have been sharing the same strange, dreamlike recollections. Dr. Crusher discovers that the crew’s neurochemistry is off and that several officers have been subjected to inexplicable invasive procedures of which they have no memory. When a subspace rift appears in one of the cargo bays, endangering the ship, and a missing crewmember suddenly reappears and dies, the crew suspects a connection between these strange occurrences.

The Enterprise officers uncover the truth, that the crew is under stealthy attack by hostile aliens from another universe, a threat species abducting and examining Starfleet personnel to look for exploitable weakness as a potential prelude to invasion. Predicting Commander Riker is likely to be taken again, they devise a scheme to keep him coherent and effective during the kidnapping, allowing him to disrupt the aliens’ procedures and rescue his missing comrade from their universe.

When Riker springs the trap, his mission is a success; fighting his way back he returns safely to the ship with his crewmate just as the Enterprise forces the subspace rift closed. A strange object follows Riker through the portal and disappears into deep space, one he and Captain Picard worry may be an alien probe that could mean the invaders may try to return in the future.


There are malevolent exterrestrials known to factions in the SSP that make a practice of the covert abduction of other species. Reports of abduction by subgroups of Grey aliens have pervaded mainstream culture, and insiders describe ETs taking Earth humans for research, trafficking, and slave labor purposes. Apparently, Earth humans have unique aptitudes and are a very profitable commodity among certain malevolent ET groups. With so many possible motives for abduction of humans by malevolent extraterrestrials, it can be difficult to assess the ultimate threats posed in specific instances, but perhaps through embracing the concept of universal Unity from the Law of One as we reach out to the stars, we can cast light down even the darkest paths.

I hope you have enjoyed this examination. Thank you very much for watching. I encourage you to like, subscribe. and share it with your friends.

How the CIA hid their MKULTRA mind-control program

by Jon Rappoport

March 30, 2018

Back in the early 1990s, I interviewed John Marks, author of Search for the Manchurian Candidate. This was the book (1979) that helped expose the existence and range of the infamous CIA MKULTRA program.

Marks related the following facts to me. He had originally filed many Freedom of Information (FOIA) requests for documents connected to the CIA’s mind-control program. He got nothing back.

Finally, as if to play a joke on him, someone at the CIA sent Marks 10 boxes of financial and accounting records. The attitude was, “Here, see what you can do with this.”

I’ve seen some of those records. They’re very boring reading.

But Marks went through them, and lo and behold, he found he could piece together MKULTRA projects, based on the funding data.

Eventually, he assembled enough information to begin…
