Visionary Artist Paints the Impossible

a film review by Dana Taylor

The amazing spiritual artist, Akiane Kramarik, recently uploaded a fascinating 24 minute biographical documentary to YouTube. Since the age of eight, Akiane has been an international sensation. The biopic, Painting the Impossible, is narrated by 23-year-old Akiane and features footage taken over the course of her lifetime. The film begins “The day Akiane was born, someone left a gift on the doorstep ~ an old film camera.”

Prince of Peace by Akiane Kramarik

To say her story is unusual is putting it mildly. Akiane’s loving, but unconventional family, experienced extreme deprivation in her early years. At the age of four, she began having visions that she felt compelled to paint. Poetry would soon follow.

As with most great artists, Akiane suffers from a great deal of angst. She is driven by internal forces that at once inspire but also haunt her. The narration feels a bit over-the-top at times with self-indulgent drama. Yet, Akiane’s spectacular work cannot be denied.

From an esoteric viewpoint, she appears to be one of the much heralded Star Children. There was even an incident at the age of six when she “disappeared” one day into another dimension and spontaneously reappeared many hours later. The “missing hours” gave her profound information and instructions to bring back to the earthy plane. Hear her relate her experience in this YouTube Interview.

New Documentary Shines Light on Medical Alternatives

Filmmaker Jeff Hays takes on the status quo via the medium of documentaries. In Bought he revealed the unholy alliance between big government, big pharma, and big agra. His latest film, Breakthroughs, (free to view online through May 3) shines a light on seven different alternative health care providers. Rather than beating an anti-establishment drum, Breakthroughs gives seven examples of people who searched for health, often personally or for their families, and then went on to share what they found with the world.

The personal stories are varied and interesting–a wild salmon fisherman, a genetic nutritionist cancer survivor, an athletic specialist chiropractor, a skin specialist speaking of “skinflammation,” and more. The emphasis is often on nutrition, departing from toxic chemicals, and lifestyle changes.

The most interesting segment to me focused on Dr. Jason West, DC NMD FIAMA DABCN. Dr. West is a fourth generation chiropractor practicing in Pochatella, Idaho. Building on his family’s foundation, he has broadened his clinic into an all-encompassing comprehensive medical facility. He offers what ideally could be the doctor office of the future. Patients develop a team of physicians tailor made for their particular situation. People often find Dr. West after years of ineffective medical treatment. His staff includes an MD and a variety of alternative medicine experts in nutrition, blood chemistry, clinical nutrition, medical microscopy, herbal, homeopathic, intravenous micronutrient therapy and chelation therapy.

Breakthroughs offers a glimpse of out-of-the-box thinking. In a society so engulfed by a drugs-cure-everything mentality, this film presents people pursuing good health through other methods. Much of it comes down to common sense–eat right, exercise, sleep well. Yet, in our fast food society the simplest lifestyle changes could be precisely the breakthrough many people are missing. Though the film ignores any spiritual, mind body connections, it still offers valuable information for seekers of a happier, healthier life.

If you know someone caught in a cycle of chronic disease and confusion, Breakthroughs might give them a spark of encouragement to seek new directions for health and a sense of personal empowerment.

VAXXED ~ Movie Controversy, What You Should Know

1621774_10152256750714929_1557542093_n by Dr. Kathy Forti

This past weekend I managed to secure ONE ticket to the Los Angeles opening of the documentary VAXXED, which is about the vaccine autism controversy. Every showing throughout the day was SOLD OUT almost a week in advance for a theater that doesn’t even take pre-seating reservations. People were actually lined up outside. Why such a hot documentary? (Watch the Official Trailer below)

v1.bTsxMTc3NzU1OTtqOzE2OTQ1OzIwNDg7MTk0MDsyODc2If you haven’t heard about this film, it’s the one that was slated to be screened at actor Robert DeNiro’s Tribeca Film Festival last month and, due to high pressure by “powerful interests” (i.e. probably the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Vaccine Pharmaceutical manufacturers, and other government shills), DeNiro backed down and took it off the schedule. One can only imagine what they threatened him with regarding the fate of the Festival should he not comply. DeNiro said he just wanted the film out there to start an informed national discussion. He and his wife, Grace, have a son with autism and are trying to understand why, as are thousands of other parents just like them.

As could be expected, trying to stifle this controversial documentary backfired and only made it hotter. Negative publicity is like gold in the film industry. VAXXED is currently playing in New York and Los Angeles (it will even be played at the big AutismOne Conference in Chicago in May) and it will certainly spread to other cities and countries around the world. The cat is out of the bag and people now know, if they hadn’t already suspected it, that our government doesn’t always tell us the truth—especially when it’s not in their financial best interest.

Let me first start by emphasizing that VAXXED is NOT about ANTI-VACCINATION; more importantly, it’s about VACCINE SAFETY. No where in the film does anyone say the concept of vaccination is a bad thing or tell you not to get your child vaccinated. What you will hear is that something has gone terribly wrong with today’s vaccines and it’s time to ask serious questions and get truthful answers. Autism rates began skyrocketing in the late 1980’s when children, before the age of 36 months, started receiving a program of multiple vaccine shots all at once. One would think there wouldn’t be a soul out there against vaccine “safety” for kids, but apparently there are.

In 2013, biologist Dr. Brian Hooker received a call from a Senior Scientist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who led the agency’s 2004 study on the Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine and its link to autism.

The scientist, Dr. William Thompson, confessed that the CDC had omitted crucial data in their final report that revealed a causal relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism. Over several months, Dr. Hooker recorded the phone calls made to him by Dr. Thompson who provided the confidential data destroyed by his colleagues at the CDC.

Dr. Thompson’s analysis of the data showed that multiple vaccines given before the age of 3 years old were increasing autism by as much as 23%, especially in Afro-American males. When a “single vaccine only” program was suggested to cut the risks of multiple vaccinations, the option was quickly taken away. Thompson was told, “It will destroy our MMR program.”

Dr. Hooker enlisted the help of Dr. Andrew Wakefield, the British gastroenterologist falsely accused of starting the anti-vax movement when he first reported in 1998 that the MMR vaccine may cause autism. In his ongoing effort to advocate for children’s health, Wakefield directs this documentary examining the evidence behind an appalling cover-up committed by the government agency charged with protecting the health of American citizens.

Interviews with pharmaceutical insiders, doctors, politicians, and parents of vaccine-injured children reveal an alarming deception that has contributed to the skyrocketing increase of autism and potentially the most catastrophic epidemic of our lifetime. It’s understandable why so much effort was made to suppress this film.

What is quite disturbing to learn is that there have not been any long-term studies carried out, by the CDC or a vaccine manufacturer, using a control non-vaccine study group to analyze results against those receiving the vaccine. This is truly astounding when, as every doctor and researcher knows, the scientific community and its varied professional journals demand double-blind or control group studies for drug efficacy.

The VAXXED documentary does not explore what might have made vaccines less safe than before. It only makes one want to ask important questions that need to be known. Since those questions might open a whole other can of worms, I will attempt to shed some light on the issue…

University of Pennsylvania’s Dr. Brian Strom, who has served on Institute of Medicine panels advising the government on vaccine safety says the prevailing medical opinion is that vaccines are scientifically linked to encephalopathy (brain damage), but not “scientifically” linked to autism. (NOTE: The Zika virus is blamed on mosquitos, but many of the women, who gave birth to children with brain encephalopathy, were mandated by the Brazilian government to have multiple vaccines while pregnant. (Read More) This is important to keep in mind.

While Dr. Strom suggests they can’t prove the autism/vaccine link (others strongly disagree), let’s take a closer look at what’s happening in a child’s body when they do have autism. John Hopkin’s researchers found that these children experience acute brain inflammation from widespread activation of brain immune cells  trying to fight off a toxic foreign invader. When the body wages war against itself, it is considered an autoimmune disorder. Autism falls into this category.

No one has officially determined what the actual invader is that the child’s immune system is trying to ward off leading to autism. Is it multiple vaccines that overwhelm the developing immune system at such an early age? Is it the controversial mercury preservative known asThimerosalwhich has been put into some vaccines to protect the vaccine from degradation when refrigeration isn’t always available? Or is it something else even more insidious and disruptive?

Very few people realize that when vaccine manufacturers started removing Thimerosal from theirautismchart vaccines in the late 1980’s, they began the worldwide practice of using human DNA fromaborted fetal cellsMERK lists this on their ingredient label as “recombinant human albumin.” According to a recent Environmental Protection Agency Study (EPA), in 1988 there was a sudden spike in autism disorders, which is the same year the U.S. Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices began recommending a second dose of the MMR vaccine using the human cell cultures.

The use of growing vaccines in human cell cultures has problems, says former pharmaceutical senior scientist, Helen Ratajczak. She explains that when these human cell fragments are in the presence of the disease they are grown in, both are identified by the immune system as an enemy of the body. This is immediately seen in the neurons of the brain.  The body attacks the brain cells causing acute inflammation, which can continue throughout the life of the individual. Ratajczak also says an additional increased spike in autism occurred in 1995 when chicken pox vaccine was grown in human fetal tissue. Fetal cell tissue is used today in approximately 23 vaccines.

Years ago they used animal DNA tissue in vaccines, which is why many people became allergic to their pets after receiving vaccinations if cat or dog cell cultures were used. The immune system sees these cells as the enemy. The problem is that with current vaccines used from human tissue, the body will try to reject it, much like an organ transplant recipient might reject a donor organ. The long-term risks to human health of injecting infants, children and adults with human protein/DNA have never been studied.

In 1985, 1 in 2500 children had autism. Today, that figure is 1 in 250. Every seven minutes another child in the U.S. is diagnosed with autism. At this rate researchers predict that by 2032, if something is not done, 80% of boys will have autism. There are many reputable scientists who have done studies showing the link between vaccines and autism. Most all have been discredited after trying to publish their findings—like gastroenterologist, Dr. Andrew Wakefield. Anyone who has ever tried to write an article on the vaccine safety subject has been either vilified or silenced. Even the Huffington Post suppressed a review of the VAXXED documentary by a veteran writer of their newspaper.

National Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 protected vaccine manufacturers from lawsuits. We clearly need to review our vaccine safety policy. Future generations of children are counting on us.

GAIAM TV For the Supernal Adventurer

th-2I recently purchased an Amazon Fire Stick that turned my plain old basic cable into a major entertainment center. Unfortunately, despite having thousands of Amazon video, NetFlix, PBS, and TED Talks to choose from, I still wasn’t feeling the love. There’s only so much murder, sex, profanity, lectures, animal videos, and stupid human behavior I can take.

What’s a Supernal Girl to do? Download GAIAMTV.COM! Gaiam has grown from a fitness video company to a major producer of transformational programming. For the same $8 monthly cost as Netflix, you can view the quirky, quantum, and cosmic. There is also a variety of full length movies with spiritual themes. Plus, the Gaiam Yoga library is available to stream, which is great. No more moving to the same DVD over and over until it freezes and dies.

Some of the programs are unpolished and low budget, but slick isn’t always better. Intriguing information can be delivered on a white board with markers and a brilliant mind. If you don’t like one program, you can jump to another.

Choose from:

Gaiam_Open-Minds_Regina-MeredithSo far I have enjoyed Open Minds with Regina Meredith the most. She is a good interviewer, sort of the New Age Diane Sawyer. I watched a mind-blowing conversation on walk-ins and another about a dark pyramid buried in Alaska that could power a country the size of Canada. Fascinating!

Let me state that I don’t believe everything I see as absolute truth and some things are too far out of my current world view to embrace, but exploring new ideas keeps life interesting.

So, if you’re tired of the murder, mayhem, and mindless on other platforms, give GAIAM TV a try.

Have a joyful day!

“Wish I Was Here” Gets You Right There

Zach Braff’s new movie WISH I WAS HERE is the story of a modern family dealing with age old issues– marriage, kids, a younger brother, an ailing father.

At the center is Braff’s character, Aiden Bloom, an LA actor still hoping for the big break to fulfill his performer’s dream. But the years are slipping by.  His wife, played by Kate Hudson, works a mind-numbing job to keep  bread on the table. The children are heading into the challenging years. His Jewish father, Mandy Patinkin, announces he can no longer pick up the tab of religious school for the grandkids. The cancer has returned. Braff’s character is smacked in the face with reality. Time to grow up. Time to step up to the plate.

The movie weaves together like a beautifully threaded tapestry. Serving as both director and star, Braff maintains a fine balance between humor and drama, dark and light. The characters grow internally and externally. Patinkin’s moments are pure gold as expected. Braff and Hudson go beyond amicable to authentic. God even gets a shout out a time or two.

It’s the most emotionally satisfying movie I’ve watched in a long time. It reminds us to be present, capture the moments, don’t let life pass you by. Be there for the people you love.

Go see it with someone dear to your heart. Enjoy a tub of popcorn together. Savor the moments.


 

Heavenly Hollywood

 

Heaven Is For Real I’m happy to report Hollywood has decided “God sells” this year and so major studios have invested in a few faith-based stories. Tucked among the superheroes, catastrophes and the latest horror flicks this weekend, you can go and see the film adaptation of the surprise bestseller, Heaven is For Real by Todd Burpo. Sony Pictures brought together an A-list cast, beginning with Greg Kinnear, as the small town Nebraska preacher, Todd Burpo. The Burpo family are real people, making ends meets in a tough economy. When their son, Colton, was four years old he nearly died from a burst appendix. While his body lay listless on the operating table, his spirit took a little spin around the hospital and then into the heavenly dimension. His startling recollections after his recovery rock his parents’ world. The movie does a good job of taking an incident and building a decent storyline around it. The always likeable Kinnear carries the film portraying a pastor faced with doubts about his own faith system.

From my point of view, the revelations are quite tame. When your circle of friends are spirit communicators, animal psychics, healers, and mystics, a little boy with an NDE is no big deal. Still, it was pleasing to see a movie dealing with faith issues and presenting a Christian preacher as someone of integrity, rather than a flim-flam man. It was also gratifying to see a well-attended house and hear the audience laugh at the right places. Applause broke out the end. I can’t remember that last movie I saw when that happened.

For my money, the really fascinating story that needs to be told is only touched upon in Heaven is for Real–the story of the amazing Akiane Kramarik. The movie begins with a girl painting a picture. During the course of the movie, Colton is asked to describe Jesus, but can’t find the words. The movie ends with him identifying the now-famous Prince of Peace painted by Akiane at the age of eight as the real deal.

Years ago I had a life-changing “dream” with Jesus visiting my bedside, holding my hand, and talking to me. His face was clear and his blue/green eyes so compelling. The experience is recalled in Ever-Flowing Streams: Tapping into Healing Energy. Like Colton Burpo, I stared in stunned amazement at my computer screen last year seeing the likeness Akiane painted. It is the Jesus of my “dream.”
