Angels Riff on Conspiracy Theories
“What is truth?” The perennial search for truth seems to be magnified in this communication age. My Facebook feed is filled with a dizzying variety of flavors of truth. It’s not simply chocolate or vanilla anymore, but a real Baskin and Robbins 31 flavors of “truth” served in single, double, and triple scoops. On Facebook I’ve collected as friends an array of conservatives, liberals, progressives, lightworkers, and non-conformists. Their posts give me an overview of opinions and emotions driving our society. I’m sure my posts also reveal my personal biases.
I have many friends in the energy healing lightworker category, what with me being a Reiki practitioner and Supernal Adventurer and all. Yes, I admit a fascination with the “out of this world,” including, but not limited to, UFOs, angels, crop circles, and quantum physics. I’m not a fan of Big Pharma, Big Oil, or Big Agra. Natural healing and organic eating are my jam.
Where do I stand on conspiracy theories? Historically, some conspiracy theories turn out to be valid, i.e., the Catholic Church covering up decades, perhaps, centuries, of sexual abuse. But for those who still believe the moon landing was a hoax of Hollywood special effects, there’s simply too much evidence to the contrary.
Conspiracy theories are seductive and breed distrust. They can also be true. They can also be false. This year it seems to me many have been seduced in alternate directions. Discord and suspicion is being seeded across all communication channels. Fears are being fed. Perhaps it’s time to step back and exercise discernment and common sense.
The following interview between well-known Gaia personality, Regina Meredith, and archangel channel, Belinda Womack, is certainly high on the woo-woo scale. Womack has been interviewed several times on Meredith’s Open Minds show at Gaia. She gives herself over to angelic entities to relay messages to us humans experiencing the planetary classroom known as Earth. Womack contacted Meredith saying the angels wanted to address conspiracy theories and how they are affecting the collective consciousness. I’m sharing it here because much of it resonated with me. Regina has certainly received a lot of blow-back in the YouTube comments, along with some support. I’m sort of placing a bull’s eye target on my chest for argument by sharing the interview. But, avoiding all controversy is cowardly. For me, the ultimate message of the angels is to promote love and connection, not fear and isolation. But, judge for yourself.
