Hi @lillies. I'm not sure you were actually hypnotized by this person, but she certainly did trigger in you your traumatic experiences with that abuser, seeing how the "stealing" incident came up the way it did. And I could see how the whole experience might have felt "hypnotic."
Nemesis is a pretty powerful word. It might be useful to look into its Greek origin to see more specifically why your psyche might have chosen that word in particular.
Starting with Merriam-Webster:
1 capitalized :
the Greek goddess
of retributive justice
2 plural nemeses\ ˈne-mə-ˌsēz \
one that inflicts retribution
Many a pursued man fell before his nemesis in the streets …— Agnes Morely Cleaveland
a formidable and usually victorious rival
The team was defeated by its old nemesis.
Sometimes we are drawn to someone we might term our nemesis. There could be a "petty tyrant" angle to that. As you were suggesting, we seek to prove our invulnerability before someone who in fact causes us to feel vulnerable.
It does seem as though something in this woman's energy has you feeling uncentered, or disconnected. Hopefully, you can stear clear of her for the most part. I would even leave the vicinity to avoid her, and return to my errand at a later point. There's no defeat in that; instead it's more to do with having healthy boundaries, and taking charge, and knowing what your vulnerabilities/limitations are.
Good luck with this, lillies. So sorry you have to have such a person in your midst.
As to "the jab"... remember, lillies, there will be, there IS a growing resistance. There are constitutional lawyers, doctors, independent journalists, and just plain fed up people who are looking into ways of confronting this tyranny. People in the tech field--hackers especially--who will find ways of circumventing government intervention into all our lives, including the mandating of vaccine passports, etc. Each move the PTB makes is met with a counter measure; the more they reveal their hand, the more push-back takes place. Many state governors are now banning Critical Race Theory in schools, for example. So, this cabal is seeing some serious set-backs.
There are those who feel the PTB has revealed too much too soon; that they were not ready to really "seal the deal," as it were. This may well be the "exposure" the C's were talking about. Yes, many innocent people are dying and will continue to die due to the vaccines. But, especially since so many are having adverse reactions to these vaccines, doubt is beginning to set in, even if just through word of mouth. So, nothing is static about this situation. What heretofore has seemed unalterably polarized might in fact be breaking down.
Also, people are coming to the conclusion that the best way to fight this tyranny is to act to create the reality that they want to be a part of. Ideas like "food forests" are coming to bear. This uses the idea that many home owners have land -- even an unused front yard -- that could be used in a sustainable, well thought out way in order to provide fruit, berries and vegetables, etc.-- all in abundance. It's based on how a forest works. You can have large fruit trees, or just dwarf fruit trees, surrounded by berry bushes of different kinds; perennials like asparagus, different kinds of onions, garlic, even ginger -- oh, and the robust herbs that can handle the winter, depending on where you live. You can add to that annuals, which, if you harvest them correctly, provide the seeds for the following year. If this idea catches on -- note: there are financial entities buying up single family homes en mas
in some places, in order to force would-be home owners to become renters, so there are some serious problems with home ownership -- but if families who own their own homes start to use even their small plots of land wisely, who knows what could be possible. We're talking about A LOT of unused land that could suddenly be sustainably developed for food production, and which will be contributing to a "true" greening of the suburban environment; land that could be providing food to share with the community during increasingly uncertain times.
Briefly, here's some info on food forests. There are many people talking about this on Youtube, actually; people who are sharing their own experiences with doing this type of gardening. The following was sent out regarding something called the TexasNexus Event:
Hello Food Forest Abundance Family!
Food Forest Abundance Founder Jim Gale shared the stage in front of a packed crowd of 450 at the TexasNexus Event:
Integral Foundations: Systems Architecture For Humanity With Dr. David Martin in Spiceland, Texas
What is The Texas Nexus? The Texas Nexus is a network of individuals who value personal freedom.
Top Ten reasons to grow your own food and medicine...
🍒 Convenience - It is EASY! Perennials (fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, etc.) take less maintenance than lawns. You do not have to become a "farmer" (in the traditional sense) to grow a lot of food. Think of a cherry or apple tree... These trees will provide hundreds of fruits per year with almost no effort.
Now, instead of 1 or 2 fruit trees, imagine 10 in a suburban yard, all different species. Now, add to that perennial roots and tubers, like ginger, turmeric, sweet potatoes, add grape vines and 3 types of berry bushes, add medicinals like elderberry and lavender, herbs like rosemary and thyme... The list goes on and on!
🍈 ROI… The average return on investment blows away any other market sector! Let's take a peach tree for example. A healthy peach tree will produce 150 lbs of peaches per year... $3 lbs x 150 = $450. Well over 100% $ROI annually once mature, and that's just $ ROI!
🍇FOOD SECURITY... The food supply chains are failing. Most of our food comes from 1,500 miles away, is handled by 6 to 7 people, and requires 4 to 5 vehicles. Unsustainable!
🍓 TASTE... Ripe fruits = much better taste and more nutrition.
🍌 ANXIETY and STRESS... are more prevalent now than ever. Gardening is found to be as effective as prayer/meditation for helping with these ailments.
🍊 REVERSE DEFORESTATION... When we transition 20 to 50% of our lawns into Food forests, we reverse deforestation.
🌱 REVERSE MASS EXTINCTION... As we transition our lawns into foodscapes, the industrial monocrops farms will go back to nature.
🍍 SOIL... We are currently destroying our topsoil at a rate of 10 to 40 x the rate of replenishment, "we only have 2 generations of soil left." If this were the only stat, would it not be enough?
🍑 Disease and DIS-EASE... This is because of the poisons we consume. No more poisons!
🥑 FREEDOM… All paths to lasting freedom (from everything from tyranny to cancer) must include a decentralized. regenerative and local food supply.
Jim Gale has a website, foodforestabundance.com (which I am going to check out after finishing this post). In the following video he's talking about the TexasNexus event he just spoke at. He has some inspiring things to say about.. really the "people's" movement against tyranny that's springing up across the country in differing ways. He gets choked up as he speaks. It's rather touching to watch. And hopeful.
I'm not a rose-colored glasses type of person, but I do think that in focusing on some of the positive counter measures going on we are supporting this idea of creating a better reality in a "real" sense, not a wishful thinking sort of way. It's really a down here on the ground sort of way.
And, no, lillies, you will not be forced to take a vaccine. We must all find the ways that motivated people are coming up with to circumvent these measures. We must. And we can. Stay tuned here at the forum. These ideas will be shared here no doubt. We just have to keep our eyes and ears open and find out who is doing what, and how we can in some way participate.
Part of this effort is to start to look around you locally, see who you know, what are the local resources. Can you start communicating with people about what happens if there is a financial collapse or another type of calamity? What can we do locally?
I'm not saying any of this is easy. I did my first email along these lines, reaching out to someone I just met, and I never heard back from her. Email can be like that sometimes; maybe she never even saw my email. So, there are always going to be setbacks. And, even though upstate New York largely votes "red," it's still a blue state, with all the bad policy that accompanies that. So, again, we have to think more locally. I, myself, am planning on fencing in a piece of my backyard (we have deer up here who would otherwise feast on all of my efforts), but I am going to start a food forest within a fenced in area. A lot of plants can actually be planted in the fall, so there's always a time of year when you can be doing something. I'd like to set up some sort of a green house as well for herbs that can't handle the winter months. So, it's a year round project.
Anyway, I'll keep you all posted as things progress with this. My hands are tied until we get in some drainage that will be beneath where the food forest will be. So, it's first things first. But we just had gravel dumped in our yard for that. So things are progressing... along with the continued project of finishing our "fixer upper" (quite an undertaking, I'm afraid, but it's finally happening -- that is, we're finally doing it!).
Be well, you all. You too, lillies. 🌷
