Faith Nolton is a painter who's paintings are inspired by her shamanism - and often her paintings are done on instructions from the spirits -Nicholas Breeze Wood
I have followed the way of the mystic and poet all my life. My images, like icons, reflect a sacred world where all things are connected. Where beyond the surfaces of everyday life the souls of plants, land, trees and creatures sing. - Faith Nolton
March Against Monsanto on the 25th May 2013 was a huge success with 1 million people around the World joining their voices in unity to echo a resounding... NO
What a year it's shaping up to be for the people!! In February we had One Billion Rising around the Globe in honour of women everywhere and in May we've managed One Million rising for our Earth.
Here in the UK you'd be forgiven for being unaware of what's going on because the mainstream media isn't showing it. We are however being shown repeated images of some of the most inhumane acts in the World and yet for some reason we're being shielded from the cries of our fellow man. We are hearing very little about the events in the World and even the events on our doorstep unless it serves the corporate agenda and it seems to me the time is now to educate ourselves and not wait for the Television to be the beacon of light in these times. Especially as we now know without a shadow of doubt our mainstream news is being used as a propaganda machine to paralyse people in "terror". It's a well known tactic to control the masses and has been used to our dis-advantage for way too long and I for One have had enough and judging what I'm witnessing I'm not the only one.
For example the Icelandic revolution that's still not reached our screens and the recent march where One Million people around the World took to the streets against Monsanto and the underhand illegal practises that they've been and probably still are involved in as they try to gain control of the World's food system, followed closely on the heels by Nestle's C.E.O. who wants to deny our right to fresh Water! I see a multitude of reasons why some feel that those who are standing up are resisting something and we all know "What we resists, persists." Carl Jung
Please do not get trapped in the use of the word "Against" because the people behind these movements are not the resistors in fact I'd go so far to say they are the transmitters of a higher calling, a calling to once again honour the Earth that has provided for us since the day we were born.
What the March Against Monsanto movement stands FOR.
Enlightening Times Interview with Thomas sheridan

The "End of Eire" by Thomas Sheridan
In December 2012, two Irish artists, Thomas Sheridan and Mark Higginbotham, came up with the idea for a film to document their personal outrage at the systematic conversion of their homeland from a once prosperous and culturally vibrant society into a Globalist taxation livestock farm under the yoke of crushing austerity measures imposed by unelected bureaucrats. Both were fully aware that the reason why this situation came about was a result of Irish politicians handing over the Irish nation; both assets and people to the European Central Bank (ECB) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The Irish political classes did this in order to protect both themselves and the CEOs of top Irish banks from going to jail for negligent fraud and compliance with corruption on a colossal scale.
In doing so, the politicians who protected these banking officials committed what amounted to an act of late night high-treason by approving a multi-billion Euro bail-out without the consent nor the approval of the Irish population. Then the Irish mainstream media and ‘expert’ classes essentially told the Irish people that it was the best thing that ever happened to them and how they should be proud of being good slaves. A rotten cesspool of coagulated media and money tycoons telling us we should delight in being obedient indentured slaves on their plantation.
This act was a culmination of an on-going series of YES/NO constitutional referendums fiasco voting, in which the Irish voters were continually told by the unelected oligarchs of the European Union to hand over their national sovereignty and to keep voting until the EU Commission got from the Irish electorate the results they wanted. All during this transition from Irish democracy to EU imperialism, the Irish mainstream media, the public sector trade union leadership, the economic ‘experts’—whose advice wrecked the economy—all the major political parties, women’s organisations, civil and environmental rights groups, along with civil servants being paid to post pro-EU propaganda (in the style of Orwellian ‘Ministry of Truth’ Inner Party members) bombarded the Irish consciousness with pro-European Union/Globalist fear-based propaganda tactics which would have made Joseph Goebbels giggle with delight.
In the end, the Irish voter was so traumatised from the incessant propaganda from the lavishly overpaid RTE (Ireland national broadcaster) ‘stars’ that they eventually gave in and acquiesced to the interrogation of the collective Irish psyche from the pro-EU factions in the Irish media, business, public sector and chattering classes.
Then the horror really began…
Geo-Engineering Renfrewshire by Rashelle Reid
Thing's have been heating up in Scotland with regards to the Geo-engineering issue, the people have had enough and all over the country people are taking the necessary action to put an end to this madness.
In Renfrewshire there's been people making donations to gift Orgonite and the first chem-tower for the community but to be honest at this stage I'm not sure how effective these are and whether while people are focused on doing this, more effective ways of dealing with the madness are being neglected.
So in Renfrewshire we decided it's not enough to focus on only one potential solution but instead to take as much action as possible towards a conclusion that is satisfactory for the people here and as we do hoping that similar action is being taken in other constituents and countries across the World.
As you can see from the video below which includes only a tiny fraction of the pictures taken in Renfrewshire, strange flights have become the norm in Paisley and the hazy skies are becoming so much the norm that most people fail to notice.
