300+ Mind Expanding Documentaries

 

.

145

 

I watch a lot of documentaries. I think they are incredible tools for learning and increasing our awareness of important issues. The power of an interesting documentary is that it can open our minds to new possibilities and deepen our understanding of the world.

On this list of mind expanding documentaries you will find different viewpoints, controversial opinions and even contradictory ideas. Critical thinking is recommended. I’m not a big fan of conspiracy documentaries but I do like films that challenge consensus reality and provoke us to question the everyday ideas, opinions and practices we usually take for granted.

Watching documentaries is one of my favorite methods of self education. If I find a documentary inspiring, I usually spend more time researching the different ideas and interesting people interviewed in the film. I hope you find these documentaries as enlightening as I did!

The Oracle Report | Saturday, October 25 – Sunday, October 26, 2014

FROM WISE OWL CINDY (EFFECT INTENTIONAL)

FROM WISE OWL CINDY (EFFECT INTENTIONAL)

Oracle Report – Saturday, October 25 – Sunday, October 26, 2014

“To Boldly Go…” Scorpio Lunar Cycle Overview – October 22, 2014

Saturday, October 25 – Sunday, October 26, 2014

New Moon Phase: begin

Moon in Scorpio/Sagittarius

Ruling Mahavidya: Kamala (The Goddess of Assurance)

Skill: remain devoted to light

Negative Imprint: insincere, unreliable, breaking promises, temptation, uncooperative

Positive Imprint: simplicity, wish fulfillment, building, kinship, generosity, devotion, illumination

Many things are happening in the heavens this weekend.

First, Mercury stations direct Saturday, moving forward in the sky once again after a jaunt of re-starts, re-do’s, and re-working things to make them better. Communications, travel, and electronics seem to give us issues the day a planet stations retrograde or direct, but this fades throughout Saturday.

Second, Mars, the God of Fire, moves into Sagittarius, a fire sign. Masculine energy ignites with this configuration. It’s a good weekend to sit by a fire no matter where you are. This time around, Sagittarius the Archer’s arrow is set aflame by Mars. Engage the sacred masculine inside yourself and take aim at what you want – your wish, your desire for yourself and the world – and then shoot that blazing arrow at it. This is a powerful visualization for the New Moon phase and it’s trajectory will actually continue into the next lunar month.

Third, the Sun continues massive activity with an X3-class flare yesterday. Spaceweather.com reports sunspot 2192 “remains the largest and most active sunspot of the current solar cycle. By far.” But still no coronal mass ejections. This is a blessing from the divine being that is our Sun. A CME from an X-class flare would cause massive mutation and spread of viruses.

These are all big stories, but here at the Oracle Report, the headline is that the Sun, the Earth, Venus, and the asteroid Pallas Athena (which is archetypal energy of wisdom and skill) are making aspects to the Chiron Point. This means we are in for healing and learning this weekend. There is the element of “wounding” with Chiron, so that is present, but it really goes far beyond that.

The Sabian symbol for the Chiron Point (the degree in the sky where Chiron was discovered) is “a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.” Chiron seeks to enrich us and bring light. In one of the myths about Chiron (who is also archetypally Merlin, Gandalf, and a little bit of Alfred the “Butler” from Batman), Chiron gives of himself so that fire – light – would be returned to humanity. He was bold and went where few had. Many Oracle Report readers feel kindred with Chiron. Like Chiron, we are driven by a mission.

This weekend we will aim our arrows for fire and light (and maybe a combination of both if we are lucky) and affirm our wishes for the future. We want the rainbow. We understand that situations, conditions, and circumstances that come about this weekend are designed to heal and teach us something about ourselves. Let light enter those places deep inside you. Be assured that the Wisdom Goddess Kamala has your back. She doesn’t leave anyone behind so you can be bold.

It is an act of power this weekend to remain devoted to the light. It’s quite dark out there as the matrix falls, but we have ample abilities by which we see.

Thank you for supporting the Oracle Report. Blessings to all!

BBC is providing UFO Disclosure … why now ?

Sixty years ago a football match ground to a halt when unidentified flying objects were spotted above a stadium in Florence. Did aliens come to earth? If not, what were they?

It was 27 October 1954, a typically crisp autumn day in Tuscany. The mighty Fiorentina club was playing against its local rival Pistoiese.

Ten-thousand fans were watching in the concrete bowl of the Stadio Artemi Franchi. But just after half-time the stadium fell eerily silent – then a roar went up from the crowd. The spectators were no longer watching the match, but were looking up at the sky, fingers pointing. The players stopped playing, the ball rolled to a stand-still.

One of the footballers on the pitch was Ardico Magnini – he was something of a legend at the club and had played for Italy at the 1954 World Cup.

Partial Solar Eclipse Captures Spectators’ Attention

Originally posted on whotv.com:

DES MOINES, Iowa — While things started off cloudy Thursday, the skies cleared just in time to catch a partial solar eclipse.

Spectators headed to the Capitol to catch a view of the eclipse. You can’t look directly at the sun, so viewers were set up to view it safely.

Thursday’s eclipse was only about 40-percent.

If you missed it, you’ll have to wait about three years for the next one.

Joy To The World:

This is a good change, so we can welcome it, celebrate it, and LOVE it. The time that we’ve been waiting millennia for is happening. Can you catch the wave of excitement with it? Can you imagine the new things that will come of it? Can you see you in it? It’s the trip of a lifetime.

New Moon Phase: emergence

Moon in Libra/Scorpio

Ruling Mahavidya: Kamala (The Goddess Who Assures Humanity)

Skill: ease into the switch of the energy

Negative Imprint: alienation, naïve, disconnected, escaping responsibilities, over-reliance on the past, stuck, suspicion, obsession, criticism, fear, distrust

Positive Imprint: groups, observation, recollection of memories, calmness, thoughtfulness, following intuition, ceremonies, open-mindedness, celebration

Welcome to a new lunar month, the Scorpio cycle, complete with a partial eclipse of a Sun that is churning with activity.  The eclipse will be most visible to those in the Eastern and Central time zones of North America.  It happens at sunset, with mega-sunspot 2192 (which is now the size of Jupiter!) also visible.

Sunspot 2192 is extremely active and releasing flares (an X-flare yesterday!), but no coronal mass ejections so far.

The recording of the overview for what’s ahead, entitled “To Boldy Go…,” is posted…

The REAL Awakening: The Event … Has The Archonic Reincarnation Trap Been Dissolved?

by Michelle Walling, CHLC

Recently we have seen an increase in the passing of many spiritual and metaphysical icons. Dolores Cannon and Masaru Emoto were highly respected with their knowledge of the way things work and passed within days of each other. Is it possible that they knew the time was right for them to be able to leave their bodies in order to escape the Archonic matrix net for good?

Are they having a party on the New Earth?

I have a friend from Sedona, AZ that I have been in contact with in the last year via email. He has been on his spiritual and metaphysical path for almost as long as I have been alive, which puts him in the “baby boomer” category. He first contacted me to get my opinion and advice as to whether he should think about…

Bolivia passes “Law of Mother Earth” which gives rights to our planet as a living system

The Law of Mother Earth (“Ley de Derechos de La Madre Tierra”) holds the land as sacred and holds it as a living system with rights to be protected from exploitation, and creates 11 distinguished rights for the environment. It was passed by Bolivia’s Plurinational Legislative Assembly. This 10 article law is derived from the first part of a longer draft bill, drafted and released by the Pact of Unity by November 2010. Can we please spread this law? There has to be a way for the free market to interoperate with reverence for this planet. Period.

In accordance with the philosophy of Pachamama, it states, “She is sacred, fertile and the source of life that feeds and cares for all living beings in her womb. She is in permanent balance, harmony and communication with the cosmos. She is comprised of all ecosystems and living beings, and…
