If you've reached the point where you're saying to yourself, "..okay, I get it now, I can have a happier life if I manage to raise my consciousness/the frequency that I think on and act from to a higher level, but how do I do it?, reading this book is a good place to start.
Handbook to Higher Consciousness was written by Ken Keyes Jr. and it was first published in 1972. It's still available in bookstores though sometimes only in used versions. To my surprise, it has also been made available online and if there ever was a time or need for this book to be read it's now. This isthe linkto the site that I am referring to and I included the PDF below. I'm not saying this book will give you all the answers you seek, but it might be a place to start.
Other books that came to mind to recommend (for the holidays) are Journey of Soulsby Dr. Michael Newton and these 3 books by Barbara Marciniak in this order: Bringers of the Dawn, Family of Light, and Path of Empowerment.
You can read a few excerpts from Bringers of the Dawn on this page on Barbara Marciniak's website, but please take this to heart: if what you read doesn't resonate with you, you're not ready for this material and/or these books are not for you. And that's ok! If you want to know more about this author before diving into the books, you can watch a workshop she gave in 2007 in this article: Pleiadian Wisdom For Challenging Times.
The HeartMath Institute first came to my attention in 2012 when I was screening the documentary Quantum Communication for my website, so I've been familiar with their work for quite some time.
As I have a naturally high level of energy and resilience (and other special innate abilities) it's much easier for me to deal with the current global situation than it is for the average person, and I have said over and over again that Your Mind is the key to your Well-being and Reality – but so is Your Heart.
The HeartMath Institute has generously made some of their online courses available for free, and I strongly advise you to visit their website and make use of these resources if you are mentally and emotionally in "COVID-19" overload. Below are a few introductory clips about the HeartMath Institute and also some of the relevant links.
If you find the Institute's information useful I encourage you to share these links with others so more people can benefit from them.
The Truth Warrior channel isn't on YouTube anymore.
I came across a channel on YouTube recently called Truth Warrior which is run by David Whiteheadand in this articleI want to feature one of the series that he made called Cults Of Death And Power.
The episodes were posted online between October 26th, 2019 and December 9th, 2019, i.e. way before the world had ever heard of "COVID-19", but in my opinion the topics that are covered in this 4 part series are extremely useful for gaining a better understanding of The Big Picture with regard to this so-called "pandemic".
Synopsis from Episode 1 by Truth Warrior:
This is episode one in a series on CULTS both ancient and modern. Many books and docs have focused on the leaders of these fanatical groups, which is indeed necessary and interesting. I would like to touch on that, but focus mainly on the FOLLOWERS themselves. What is it in each individual member of any cult that drives them to blindly give over their minds and better judgement to liars, abusers, psychopaths and lunatics? No followers…no cult…right!?
From the cults of the ancient world, to the many cults that have been exposed in modern times, from various religions to political movements, what is this really all about? This will be an investigation into cults both past and present. I will look at some cults that seem to be rather insignificant, to those of major import and relevance to our present time. Are there common threads? Are there safe-guards against indoctrination? Are there cults or cult-like groups operating in the world that are largely unseen and unknown? Could a person be in a cult and not even be aware of it? Are cults only about making money off of the ignorance and naiveté of the masses who flock to them, or is there more to the story?
Cult leaders and followers have been shown to consist of people of all backgrounds, all levels of education, all levels of intellect, and all levels of economic status. They are also found everywhere in the historical record throughout the world. The only main common denominator is that this is uniquely a human thing….
This series is very information-dense and not for the faint of heart. If you're new to this subject matter, I advise you to keep a pen and notebook ready to jot down words, book titles, and other information that you might want to look up later. It will also be useful to write down where you stop watching a particular episode as you will probably not be able to watch everything in one go, but it will definitely be worth your while.
Update 20 June 2020
In addition to this series, I'm adding the episode below about Collectivism, as this topic is also very important for a better understanding of the ideology behind the measures and policies that have been and are being implemented worldwide.
The Truth About Collectivism was streamed live on April 2nd, 2019.

Monday, Feb. 1, 1999
"Gentlemen! We have called you together to inform you that we are going to overthrow the United States government." So begins a statement being delivered by Gen. Carl W. Steiner, former Commander-in-chief, U.S. Special Operations Command.
At least the voice sounds amazingly like him. But it is not Steiner.
It is the result of voice "morphing" technology developed at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. By taking just a 10-minute digital recording of Steiner's voice, scientist George Papcun is able, in near real time, to clone speech patterns and develop an accurate facsimile. Steiner was so impressed, he asked for a copy of the tape.
Steiner was hardly the first or last victim to be spoofed by Papcun's team members. To refine their method, they took various high quality recordings of generals and experimented with creating fake statements. One of the most memorable is Colin Powell stating "I am being treated well by my captors."
"They chose to have him say something he would never otherwise have said," chuckled one of Papcun's colleagues.
A Box Of Chocolates Is Like War
Most Americans were introduced to the tricks of the digital age in the movie Forrest Gump, when the character played by Tom Hanks appeared to shake hands with President Kennedy.
For Hollywood, it is special effects. For covert operators in the U.S. military and intelligence agencies, it is a weapon of the future.
"Once you can take any kind of information and reduce it into ones and zeros, you can do some pretty interesting things," says Daniel T. Kuehl, chairman of the Information Operations department of the National Defense University in Washington, the military's school for information warfare.
PSYOPS seeks to exploit human vulnerabilities in enemy governments, militaries and populations.
Digital morphing — voice, video, and photo — has come of age, available for use in psychological operations. PSYOPS, as the military calls it, seek to exploit human vulnerabilities in enemy governments, militaries and populations to pursue national and battlefield objectives.
To some, PSYOPS is a backwater military discipline of leaflet dropping and radio propaganda. To a growing group of information war technologists, it is the nexus of fantasy and reality. Being able to manufacture convincing audio or video, they say, might be the difference in a successful military operation or coup.
Allah On The Holodeck
Pentagon planners started to discuss digital morphing after Iraq's invasion of Kuwait in 1990. Covert operators kicked around the idea of creating a computer-faked videotape of Saddam Hussein crying or showing other such manly weaknesses, or in some sexually compromising situation. The nascent plan was for the tapes to be flooded into Iraq and the Arab world.
The tape war never proceeded, killed, participants say, by bureaucratic fights over jurisdiction, skepticism over the technology, and concerns raised by Arab coalition partners.
What if the U.S. projected a holographic image of Allah floating over Baghdad?
But the "strategic" PSYOPS scheming didn't die. What if the U.S. projected a holographic image of Allah floating over Baghdad urging the Iraqi people and Army to rise up against Saddam, a senior Air Force officer asked in 1990?
According to a military physicist given the task of looking into the hologram idea, the feasibility had been established of projecting large, three-dimensional objects that appeared to float in the air.
But doing so over the skies of Iraq? To project such a hologram over Baghdad on the order of several hundred feet, they calculated, would take a mirror more than a mile square in space, as well as huge projectors and power sources.
And besides, investigators came back, what does Allah look like?
The Gulf War hologram story might be dismissed were it not the case that washingtonpost.com has learned that a super secret program was established in 1994 to pursue the very technology for PSYOPS application. The "Holographic Projector" is described in a classified Air Force document as a system to "project information power from space … for special operations deception missions."
War Is Like A Box Of Chocolates
Voice-morphing? Fake video? Holographic projection? They sound more like Mission Impossible and Star Trek gimmicks than weapons. Yet for each, there are corresponding and growing research efforts as the technologies improve and offensive information warfare expands.
Whereas early voice morphing required cutting and pasting speech to put letters or words together to make a composite, Papcun's software developed at Los Alamos can far more accurately replicate the way one actually speaks. Eliminated are the robotic intonations.
The irony is that after Papcun finished his speech cloning research, there were no takers in the military. Luckily for him, Hollywood is interested: The promise of creating a virtual Clark Gable is mightier than the sword.
Video and photo manipulation has already raised profound questions of authenticity for the journalistic world. With audio joining the mix, it is not only journalists but also privacy advocates and the conspiracy-minded who will no doubt ponder the worrisome mischief that lurks in the not too distant future.
"We already know that seeing isn't necessarily believing," says Dan Kuehl, "now I guess hearing isn't either."
