With the recent sanctions placed upon Russia by the US and its cronies in the EU, and the drop in crude oil prices, a resource that contributes as much as 15% to its nation’s GDP, Russia is already well on it’s way to combat all this crap and sets its sights upon finding workarounds that will allow them to side step the economic sanctions by forming its own alternative to the SWIFT payment rail (and action mirrored by their most powerful ally), contributing to their plans on de-dollarisation by forming an alternative to the IMF.
What does all this mean and why am I talking about this stuff on a blog that mostly talks about sigils and spirits forming out of our collective unconscious? Why, I am hurt that you would even ask.
A Shadow Empire is a (sometimes not so) covertly formed dominance set up by one nation-state upon the majority of the other nations. Does this sound familiar? *coughs* USA *coughs*
All this means is that the balance of power at the very top echelons of power is shifting. The Shadow Empire (not so) covertly set up by the United States by its dominant presence in the UN, its global military supremacy by means of the NATO and its economic hegemony by means of the USD being the world’s reserved currency (and being the unit of account over at the IMF) is being challenged by its old enemies. What’s worse the aforementioned old enemies are already forming an alliance that poses a significant risk to their several-decades old Pax Americana. We are headed face first into a cold war (we might as well already be in one), and war is a time of great chaos, cold or otherwise. And chaos brings a lot of opportunities, magickal and otherwise.
They (The Shadow Empire) is aware of this and wants to keep watch over all of its (most of the time unknowing) citizens and keep them preoccupied and complacent by having them play Candy Crush and drool over Kim Kardashian’s legs on their debt-financed iPhones. They want you that way because that’s the only way they could get away with funding Drone attacks and proxy wars on oil-rich lands with enemies they refuse to confront face to face (Hint: It’s the same ones old suspects). This is also because if the people really cared about what they already know is happening (not to mention all the things they don’t know), then there would be an uprising before someone could say “Viva la Revolicion!”.
With the sudden increase in background chaos as a result of all of this, now more than ever is the best time to start practicing magick (if you aren’t already), and start taking responsibility for your own existence. The Shadow Empire’s enemies (BRICS Politico-Economic bloc) are already setting up the beginnings of a resistance. But, this rising power would only serve to contribute to how the world works, and would try to control every aspect of their citizens’ lives, if possible, because that’s how they sustain themselves.
Fortunately, today we have the tools needed to take up responsibility of most, if not every, area of our lives. One of these things is finance. Banks have been soaking up a lot of our hard-earned money just by existing, and that sounds very psychic vampire to me. Charging $5 there and $20-$45 here for that overdraft, it’s just terrible. They take note of every little transaction you made with your debit card and send it off to your unseen overseers over at little ole’ Shadow Empire. And not to mention them being the source of the 2008 financial meltdown.
Absolute power currupts absolutely, as they say, and the Banking sector have indeed reached this point in our financial lives. We could get rid of this by turning towards solutions that cut out the middleman and place the power to hold people’s money back into their own hands, things like Bitcoin [1, 2] and Ripple. I won’t go into them right now, but they will help in securing your own assets and prevent other people from being able to deduct and/or freeze your money without your consent.
Money and finance is where the real war is in. Russia and its allies are already making their moves. Money is just the part of the beginning, but it all has to start with you taking up responsibility for your own fate.
