Looking for the Aquarian Messiah

October 25, 2009

EndTimeProphetMaybe what I write here is partly wrong, I doubt very much that it’s entirely wrong since I’ve researched the subject of the Aquarian Messiah or Aquarian “Great Prophet” on and off for years. Some of those who know me personally in real life would possibly be surprised at my conclusions, but also know that there’s a great deal of supporting evidence behind them. It’s my belief that what I’m writing here is very close to the truth, and could give many people some useful clues for what to look for in the future.

The position that I take in the writing of this is that all religions have a single source (God/Allah/Buddha), and therefore it would be misguided and narrow-minded to accept only one religious sect’s interpretation, but better to accept a wider and more embracing view of the role of prophets/messiahs/saviours/enlightened ones. Mostly this article is written with the terminology of those religious branches that come from the Abrahamic Judeo-Christian-Islamic tradition, but the subject is more global because the same cyclic patterns apear worldwide.

The Earth’s magnetic frequency has been rising for a while. It used to be 7.83hz (for the primary Schuman Resonance) but it’s getting higher (around 11hz) and nobody knows why. The Schumann frequencies shift over time, and go up and down in cycles, yet right now, they are higher than ever measured before. At the same time the strength of the Earth’s electromagnetic field is getting weaker. At the same time as this is happening, our Solar system is passing through the galactic plane of the Milky Way galaxy as we follow the cycle of procession. It seems clear that there’s a connection between these events.

It’s also already been long accepted by science that electromagnetic fields affect human behaviour and sleep patterns, and astrology has been supported in at least some ways by statistical studies such as the Mars Effect. CSICOP tried to debunk the scientific evidence that has been found to support astrology and instead corroborated it, though they’ve tried to spin, cover-up, and use personal attacks about it ever since. Theories abound as to why the statistical studies show that there is a clear effect, none of which can really explain it, but it’s still there. It’s a case of science not being able to explain something that we already have evidence of, and some highly irrational sceptics illogically claiming that just because the evidence can’t be explained by any scientific theory – yet – that the evidence is going to go “poof” and disappear, so we should just ignore it.

It’s also long been known and supported with scientific evidence that Local Sidereal Time has a connection with both radio interference and a proven influence on paranormal statistical testing. There is definitely more possible psychically than we have scientific theories to explain, but that evidence is not going away either. Changes within the Earth’s electromagnetic field (which is affected by the Sun, and the Sun in turn by the galaxy and other planets) affect our perception of time, sleep patterns, moods, behaviour, and our ability to regulate our immune system.

A certain kind of sceptic is honestly no better than the kind of irrational fanatic who attacks everything that they don’t understand, or simply dislike, despite what logic and evidence would support. They’ll quite often go so far as to dismiss all evidence and go against logic in their fervent dislike of some concepts, people, or things.

There’s an ancient tradition that Prophets are sent by God every seven hundred years, each time to a different region (some refer to seven continents and seven seas) to give the Word yet again because humans are prone to veer from the path, and have an awful bad habit of corrupting God’s Word. Greater Prophets also appear at the end/beginning of Astrological Ages. There are some Christians who are under the misguided impression that there’s no astrological connectiion with the Bible, apparently these people have never read the book itself or know anything about astrology. Astrological symbolism is common in in the Bible.

“There shall be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars.”
– Luke 21:25

The Bible is filled with astrological symbolism, and Jesus is quoted with numerous references to astrology. It was widely understood in ancient times that important people are supposed to have particular astrological patterns. A pattern repeated with the three Magi who were Persian astrologers or astrologer-kings.

According to historian, Flavius Josephus, the Jewish temple at Jerusalem had the twelve signs of the zodiac inlaid in its floor.

Jesus was the dawn of the Age of Pisces. The sign of the fish always had special significance in Christianity. Jesus recruited “fishermen” as disciples to make them “fishers of men.” He fed the masses with a miraculous draft of fishes. His followers were known in Latin as “pisciculi”, the “little fishes.” A commonly used icon in Christian churches is the “Vesica Piscis”, which is Latin for “mouth of the fish”. Its shape resembles a fish without a tail. It can be seen in the shape of stained glass windows in many churches and cathedrals. The Pope wears a ceremonial hat in the shape of a fish head.

Moses was of the dawn of the Age of the Aries, and the ram was often the common symbol, which Judaism still uses with the sacrifice of goats. Before Moses, it was the Age of Taurus, the bull, and so we have the symbolism of the golden calf being of the old religion which Moses orders destroyed. After this time, the Hebrews celebrated the approach of their Messiah by blowing rams horns. The symbol of the ram and the “lamb of god” concept became popular in many other religions during this age.

Astrological symbolism for the Age of Aquarius also appears in the Bible, with water bearers, water pourers, the pouring of water, for example;

“Go into the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water: follow him”
– Mark 14:13

Dare we hope that on the verge of the Age of Aquarius that another is about to be revealed? If not already? I doubt that most of us would recognise such a man, or admit what he is. It hurts masculine pride to accept, and Prophets are unfortunately targeted by the rulers and old religions for harassment and execution whenever possible.

Aquarius will be the new age, the new life. First there will be disastrous events, gigantic upheavals, turmoil and change of all kinds….

….The Age of Aquarius is fast approaching, and it is going to overturn and shatter all the old forms and values that human beings thought of as permanent….

– Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov (1900-1986)

According to all the great mystic teachers and seers, the Age of Aquarius starts with a time of immense conflict and turmoil never before witnessed in recorded history.
After reading these predictions, I’m reminded of some particular words in the Bible.

1 Corinthians 12:27-29, 13:2, 14:22, 14:39,

Acts 2:17-18, Romans 12:6,

1 Timothy 4:14

Together, these repeated words from the Bible say that prophets are still needed, and a vital part of God’s way of bringing the Truth and Word. Another way of saying this is that job isn’t yet finished because humans keep getting it all wrong. I dare those who doubt that more prophets are expected and deny that they are a part of Christianity to look up those words and deny that they are there.

The two great prophets (2033)

In 2033, it becomes apparent, and seemingly public knowledge (though it seems strange and still denied by the more conservative and sceptical) that a rumoured messianic “Jesus”-like figure has long been around on Earth and was previously secretly preaching in Europe. Millions will see this person as the messiah, and he will be a great new leader of Christianity. He will say everything that they expect to hear, everything that they believe he should be saying, and though he will publicly make no declaration that their belief about him being a kind of “Jesus” reborn, he will actually encourage this belief in other ways. He will already have great political power in secret, and gain much more afterwards in public. He will become a very public figure, lauded and talked about and worshipped by millions. Everything that he says will seem to be the “right” thing to say and fit with Christianity in most ways….

He will shout many seemingly great truths while telling many things that they expect and which are actually lies, but he will fool millions for that is his task. He is not inherently evil, but is only fulfilling his duty to lead Christians further into their own foolishness, for the world’s humanity needs to be tested to see if they can recognise the real truths.

In North America, this pseudo-“Christ” like figure will have no real political power or major influence, for there are millions of American Christians who have closed themselves off by this time, and are in soul searching to find their way back to more primitive kinder Christianity without huge churches and distracting paraphernalia. There will be enormous resistance by established organisations to this shift, but the majority of people will eventually see through that resistance for the self-serving and delusion that is behind it. Islam in North America will also change, becoming a more harmonious kind, which by century’s end, most people will respect. Unfortunately, in their compromises, the American Islamic organisations will risk losing a lot of their real truths, so they should be very wary of where their leaders take them.

The other great prophet will not be in Europe, yet is both spiritual brother and the exact opposite of the man in France. Both of these great prophets are polar opposites of each other. Both were born in the 1960s. The one which speaks truth will be hidden, the one which speaks lies will be in the open..

– John Croino (writing of 2 Great Prophets that are “revealed” by 2033)

Similar to this description of two Great Prophets, a Great False Prophet openly in Europe, and another Great True Prophet (that John Croino avoids saying where, as if he knows but won’t say), there is an interesting prophecy from Nostradamus, in Century Ten, Quatrain 75

Long awaited he will never return in Europe, he will appear in Asia. One of the league issued from great Hermes, he will grow above all other powers in the Orient.

– Nostradamus

Hermes was a god of wisdom in ancient Greece, who appears as such numerous times in Greek mythology in that role. A quick google search turned up tens of thousands of hits with Hermes identified as a god of wisdom, but more importantly in classical works from ancient times he has long been referred to as a god of wisdom. He was strongly associated with the Egyptian god, “Thoth” (often referred to as the Father of Wisdom in ancient Egypt), which would be very strange if Hermes had not been considered as a god of wisdom in those ancient times. A book I highly reccomend on the subject is “The Gospel of Hermes” in which the author has done an indepth study of Hermes. Hermes was a god of wisdom, magic, and communication. In Judaism, both are considered to be the prophet Enoch (Jewish mystics identify Hermes as the antediluvian prophet Enoch). In other words, the typical image of Hermes/Mercury as a Messenger of the Gods is as a prophet. A Messenger of the Gods or a God, by the way, is also called an Avatar. That’s highly appropriate for a prophet, and Nostradamus was well aware of this, thus it seems that Nostradamus is saying that this will be a very wise and powerful prophet. Jesus was technically European, but this implies that the new Prophet or Messiah appears in Asia, and his religion becomes more powerful than all others in Asia.

Edgar Cayce also made a prediction related to Asia that gives us a clue about this Aquarian Prophet of truth, when he envisioned a future where China would be the:
“the cradle of Christianity as applied in the lives of men.” – but he wasn’t referring to Christianity in the modern or traditional sense as people commonly see it, instead as the true spirit of a higher form of truth because it involves reincarnation, the divine light within, and concepts that can found in near-death experiences.

In the New Testament of the Bible, there are passages from Revelations that appear to refer to a secret prophet or messiah in the coming age, who arrives without any public display;

“Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.”

– Revelations 16:15

What will the Great Prophet of the Aquarian Age be like? Aquarius is a male sign, he will be a trendsetter and an eccentric rebel, a reformer with an idealistic agenda. His astrological link with the higher consciousness will bring us into an age where intelligence and spirituality is uplifted and society can function as a whole. Don’t expect him to follow any status quo, as he will be the ultimate trendsetter, never one to give in to the wrong rules no matter how many centuries or millennia that they have been in existence. Aquarius is very definitely associated with chaos.The air signs are all about yin/yang, the inner fight, the epic battle of good vs. evil. It’s a battle of two different sides, so perhaps it shouldn’t be surprising that two Great Prophets appear at the same time as opposites of each other. But if there are two, then how do we know which is the good one?

A possibly related prophecy from Nostradamus describes what could be an Aquarian Prophet or Aquarian Messiah.

A man will be charged with the destruction of temples and sects, altered by fantasy. He will harm the rocks rather than the living. Ears fill with ornate speeches.

– Nostradamus

This Aquarian Prophet has been sent to attack the old religious hierarchies and their many schismatic sects because their teachings and traditions have drifted too far from the truth and into delusions. He will harm the rocks of traditions rather than calling for bloodshed and murder. His speeches will be very elaborate, he is gifted with a talent in words, perhaps he is a skilled orator.

Perhaps it will be as John Croino’s prediction says, and that there will be two of these Great Prophets.

One will fulfill everything that Christians will “expect”, but he will be a prophet of falsehoods pandering to their egotism and delusions, doing so in a very public way that glorifies himself and attracts attention but says everything that will make people feel good about themselves even as they continue down the wrong path with the mistakes in beliefs and culture that have accumulated over the past two millennia. He’ll rise to importance in France by 2033. He’ll be a powerful political figure and be very “Christ”-like in the way that people fantasize and expect, while at the same time being in reality the new “Anti-Christ”. People will be tricked by his lies, because he’ll tell them what they want to hear, but not what they really need to know.

In the Bible, Jesus is quoted by Matthew (24:4-5) as saying;
“Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.”

The other will be a prophet of truth, but perhaps because he is born while Neptune is still dominant in the Sign of Aquarius, he will also be a secret prophet (as Neptune is associated in Astrology with secrets and hidden things). Instead of repeating the beliefs of Christianity and the West, his task is to attack the wrong-headed traditions that have become common, rebel against and attack the fantasies that people have become influenced by. Instead of being in Europe, he arises in Asia. Instead of glorifying himself in public, he preaches in secret and avoids publicity, yet the religion which he establishes eventually becomes more powerful than all others in Asia. By 2033, his existence will be commonly recognised, talked about, even though we’ll never see him on TV or in the media spotlight. I suppose in the mainstream media, he’s the sort of person who would be painted as being an “Anti-Christ” because he attacks our conventions and the rules and the status-quo, but the reality is that this guerilla prophet who preaches from hiding is going to be telling us painful truths that we don’t like to hear. I don’t believe the New Agers will like him any more than the Christians will.

Killer plagues and I’m more than a little worried

October 23, 2009

There are too many of these stories in the news media hyping up about H1N1 “when-pigs-fly” virus (a more fitting name because it’s a mixture of porcine and avian influenza DNA, and has been less lethal than the typical seasonal influenza), th_flyingpigs
the “bird flu” before that, neither of which is anywhere near as deadly as the governments, mainstream media, and pharmaceutical corporations have tried to claim. In Japan, there’s increasing public suspicion that it’s not the H1N1 which has been blamed for killing a dozen children recently, it’s the Tamiflu medicine which has been the real killer because the symptoms fit Tamiflu side-effects. NICE’s own guide, TA158, lists bronchitis as a side-effect of Tamiflu, then a few pages later ignores what they previously admitted. In Britain, there are serious side-effects for children being reported. The Japanese government already previously banned the use of Tamiflu for use with children because of a rash of suicides linked with the drug, but under pressure started allowing the use of Tamiflu again. The Europeans haven’t been experiencing the same deathtoll, fortunately, possibly because they don’t have such a credulous attitude regarding the use of Tamiflu and are more sceptical. Besides, the EU funded testing of other competitor anti-virals and found that among the top five used in Europe, Tamiflu rated the worst for side-effects.

People should be very suspicious of the motivations for all the media scare campaigns about H1N1. Pharmaceutical corporations are in the business to earn profits, they aren’t going to put the consumers actual health any higher priority than their share values, stock options, and money in the bank. Neither will the US FDA, the CDC, or the UN WHO. It serves none of their interests if the drug companies and medical busineses don’t make a profit, and it gives them more funding and political influence when it comes to calling for more funding if they can claim there’s a “horrible nasty epidemic” that we all need rescuing from – duly supported by truckloads of money, of course. There is plentiful reason for suspicion.

You should look up the video documentary “House of Numbers“, it gives a mind-blowing insight into the “AIDS epidemic”, and how conveniently profitable it has been for the drug corporations and quack medical industry. After watching it, I was sickened and angry at all the lies that we’ve been told for the past twenty-something years about HIV and AIDS. Ladies and gentleman, it may shock you –

    but there is no AIDS epidemic and there never was

. All of those tens of thousands of people who have died were in fact killed by the toxic pharmaceuticals that they were given to cure a disease which is so poorly defined that medical authorities in different countries can’t agree on it’s symptoms, can’t prove that it really exists, and have deliberately, intentionally widened the definitions to cover almost any common symptom that you can imagine. The medical corporations and other medical authorities attack dogs are trying to fight back hard against this truth coming out, because as you can easily guess, there’s going to be some huge public backlash and court cases. The payouts for compensation to millions of people would make the tobacco industry scandals look like a storm-in-a-teacup by comparison. The pharmaceutical corporations would be ruined, careers would be destroyed, and right in the middle of the worst economic crisis that we’ve had in decades (at least). There’s a good assortment of articles about the HIV debate here thanks to Sophrosyne Radical who has been following the subject for quite a long time.

There’s another interesting article about “House of Numbers” and the AIDS scandal here.

I don’t know why, or what the connection is, but somehow this goes way beyond just run-of-the-mill high level corruption. I get the feeling that the enormous deathtoll blamed on AIDS in Africa that is more likely from the poisonous non-specific DNA-destroying anti-viral drugs that have been used as “AIDS treatment” in Africa, well, that this policy from on high has a racist motivation behind it. The apartheid era white-ruled South African government was revealed to have funded research into bacteria that would sterilise black African women (In June 1998, South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission was told by one of the apartheid regime’s scientists, Jan Lourens, of the former regime’s search for a bacterium that would sterilise blacks without affecting whites), but to me it looks very much like that was just the tip of iceberg.

In 2002, John Croino made the following prophetic prediction about events of 2010 and 2012-2014 that sends chills down the spine….
The mobs cry for vengeance, the horror of AIDS is turned on it’s head, revealed as even more terrible, for the true crime against the victims was officially sanctioned mass murder that has killed millions. The CDC and WHO are as heavily implicated as the USA’s pharmaceutical corporations, leading to some belated attempts at media censorship in the USA.
– John Croino

The rest of the prophecy is quite large, but implicates the United Nations agencies, CDC, WHO, and a shadowy cabal of West European-North American-Anglo “elitists” as being behind these policies. As if there is, and has been, since World War II, a longterm plan for genocide. I would never have believed this only ten years ago, but we can all see how dark and evil these people must be with their sneaky lies, propaganda in the service of the wealthiest of the wealthy, and blatant favouritism of their ethnicity and western culture over all others. This secretive ruling class hide their disgusting evil ways in pubic, but they engage in it in every other way in their meetings and control of western government policies.

Perhaps you would dismiss this as merely paranoia, but more recently have you been watching the news from the Ukraine?

So far, I’ve only gone over the media scare campaigns and government/corporate trickery to sell drugs and vaccines for epidemics which don’t exist, however, very real and extremely deadly plagues have swept nations and even the whole world many times in history. We all fear these plagues, that there will be another horror disease that will kill our families, friends, and neighbours. It’s easy for the media corporations and medical industry to frighten us with rumours of another epidemic, even if they have to create the epidemic.

What about the possibility of real killer plagues in the future? Diseases for which the medical industry doesn’t have a cure already waiting, and which no current pharmaceutical product has a chance of stopping? Something that the wealthiest of the wealthy, the government leadership, ruling class, haven’t got their own previously prepared vaccine for… Something that would scare the pants off them just as much as they keep trying to scare the pants off the rest of us with their media campaigns and over-hyped diseases made in a lab (recall the scandal in Europe when Baxter International Inc sent LIVE avian flu virus to 18 Countries by “accident”) .

Here’s some possibilities for a real killer plague to be properly scared about, but we can prepare these for now if we stay alert. I’m convinced that these are very likely to occur, particularly John Croino’s predictions. He’s far too accurate for mere luck and guesswork. I’m putting only excerpts as the full prophecies would take up too much space.

Killer plague borne by very small insect (mites?)
Estimated mid-2010 start(?), re-occurring outbreaks for many years afterward as this plague is very difficult to eradicate.

– John Croino

Vision was of a town in South-East Asia surrounded on most sides by jungle. Men arrive in YELLOW bio-contamination suits of very cheap design and minimal effectiveness (this places the location as Vietnam or China perhaps). The entire population of the town appears to be dead. This is a VERY DEADLY plague. Carrier is those same tiny insects which most human beings have, too small to be seen easily with the naked eye.
– John Croino

Jucelino predicts a whole wave of plagues in 2011 to 2013, and John Croino predicts the same for the years of 2011 to 2025.

Jucelino Da Ruz, born in 1960, is a Brazilian who has made many predictions, and MOST have come to pass, including Princess Diana’s death by car accident (which is instigated by someone near her and will probably unfortunately be written off as a car accident), 9/11 and the 2004 Indonesian tsunami.

John Croino is often described as an elusive and secretive prophet, his age is unknown, but almost all of his predictions up until now have been terrifyingly accurate in their details, although sometimes off by a few months or a year on the dates. He predicted 9/11 and missed the date by only one day.

Do we have a real prophet in our midst?!

October 20, 2009

There have been proven psychic predictions that scored right. Jeanne Dixon predicted JFK’s win and assassination. Her prediction was public in 1956, years before it came true. She’s also on record predicting Richard Nixon’s election.

GA Freiman predicted the rampage of two serial killers in the USA and their M.O. He’s also made several other successful public predictions.

These are examples of prophecies which came out true, and it’s not against physics for it to happen either. Have a look at quantum physics, where causality gets weird and time gets entangled.

I first read about
John Croino
a couple of years ago, not sure exactly when, but was impressed by how close to the truth his predictions were even then. I wasn’t expecting perfect dates, after all even Nostradamus didn’t give any dates for nearly all of his prophecies and none of those in the Bible give any dates.

John Croino is an elusive “prophet” in Asia who (like G.A. Freiman) is very secretive and avoids the media. Most of his predictions have come to pass in what they describe, but he sometimes misses the date by a few months or a year. He predicted the 9/11 attacks two years before they happened. He correctly predicted the 1997 Asian Stockmarket and financial crisis about 11 years before it happened. He also predicted the huge riots in Sydney in 2005, and the recent revolts in western China.

(from John Croino – “Increasing Civil Unrest in Southern China (2008 to 2010)” – which we have already witnessed in the form of ethnic violence erupting in a Tibetan region of southwestern China.

His predictions go onward into the far future, but by his track record he could be extremely close to telling future history, not just making good guesses. Surprising how accurate this man’s predictions are! The details are often stunningly close. There are too many predictions to post everything here in this blog, but I’ll include some of them.

Back in 1990, John Croino made the following prediction;

Major climate chaos and dramatic seismic activity (2003-2007, then it really takes off)
The years from 2003 onward are going to be increasingly active with chaotic weather disasters, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions. Many will trace this from 2001, but it’s from 2003 that it’s most obvious. 2005 is a particularly bad year for this, getting worse and worse until people expect terrible things to be a monthly occurrence, but then 2006 will the quiet before the storm when the world will seem to wait in expectation. Very little will happen in 2006, no major wars start, and just the preliminaries for the storm to come.

Then from mid-2007, the shock of events and disasters will increase month by month, worse storms, more violent seismic activity, bizarre and terrifying ominous events that seem to foretell of some great change brewing. Most people will not truly realise even a hint of how bad it will become until late 2008. Every year from 2007 until 2014, will be increasingly nightmarish, with the peak period being 2012-2014. Prepare access to clean water, stockpile food which can last. In some regions it will be advisable to stockpile at least filter-masks and goggles due to volcanic ash falls from some huge volcanic eruptions. If you live in Tokyo, move to the west and away from the sea. Avoid Mount Fuji. Fishermen will soon find summer fish during the winter in Tokyo bay. The same advice is good if you live in the Southern hemisphere, but Australia will have other problems besides being angry at New Zealand for things that New Zealanders have no control over. The sky will be dark in those places for long enough to truly frighten people and damage crop yields
– John Croino

Anyone recognize these descriptions? It’s been really happening. Earthquakes, worse storms, tsunami, we’re living through this now.

“It’s definitely getting worse. The earthquake sequence began in 2000 with a 7.9 about 800 km away from the south of Singapore. You haven’t felt this big of a sequence of earthquakes (that is many large earthquakes) for at least 175 years.”
– Professor Kerry Sieh, professor of Geology, Earth Observatory of Singapore, NTU

Check the rate of earthquakes increasing here and how the USGS has been trying to mispresent this. In 2001, there were 137 earthquakes of magnitude 6 or higher. In 2007, there were 190. The trend has been an overall increase.

Back in 1997, John Croino made another startlingly accurate prophecy;

Economic Crisis (2008)

….in 2008 the problems with the USA’s economy and the US Dollar reach the cliff. There will be many important high level meetings in governments around the world, but the most important will not be in Europe or the USA, but will be in China and Japan. Secret discussions behind closed doors, rumoured meetings with Russian government representatives. Nations worldwide have turned hostile to the USA’s corruption and bullying. In March 2008, an important decision is made in the Japanese and Chinese governments. 2 weeks later there are discussions and secret meetings with finance corporations in Asia, as the Asian governments decide how to protect their economies. There will be a quietness in the markets, a combination of fear of the coming storm of chaos, and worries as to what the governments will decide. The employment situation will become depressing, new jobs failing to appear as companies worry about their likely need to lay-off staff in the next few months anyway.
Then in June-July 2008, the markets will seem to go crazy to with chaotic rises and falls, mad speculation and panic. For a short time, it might appear that the US Dollar will maintain it’s hegemony as the international currency of choice, but from August onward, the US Dollar’s real value drops steadily and rapidly, dragging down all currencies that are dependent on it
A new “Great Depression” will become obvious to even the most common of people in the industrialised nations

– John Croino

Are you surprised? That was back in 1997. In 2002, John Croino made the following prophecy;

US Dollar depreciation and abandonment (December 2009 to July 2010) US$ 滅亡
Rumours of Asian nations divesting themselves of the US Dollar (and their investments in the USA) turn into a reality triggering a currency crisis during the last 3 weeks of December 2009, another market crash, and international crisis on the futures exchange markets. China and some other nations, including Japan, speed up their secretive dumping of US Dollar currency reserves. Many Asian corporations are behind the majority of this currency dumping; it is beyond the reach of secretive political deal-making and diplomatic pressure by the USA to influence or prevent. This has already started, but becomes publicly noticeable in late December 2009. The effect on airlines will be troublesome to those planning to travel to the USA during that time.
The collapse of the US Dollar will proceed faster than governments and financial institutions are able to plan for, or react to. The “official” valuation with respect to other currencies will not reflect the real value in trade contracts; although dismally low and continuing to drop rapidly, it will still be rated falsely higher in official ratings by comparison. To repay their loans, the USA government and finance corporations will be forced to draw upon their reserves of foreign currencies. The US Dollar will very soon no longer be acceptable in trade anywhere outside the USA.

– John Croino

See this one coming? At the time that John Croino made his prediction, I don’t know of anyone else who had a clue that this was coming this year. Now, it looks like it’s already starting in the early stages.

We could be looking at this result before the end of 2010

Japanese Uranai, doom, gloom, and sixties-style cults

March 31, 2007


I was surprised when one of my friends in Japan mentioned this dramatic increase in the Japanese interest in Uranai ( 占い ) or fortunetellers. There are Japanese fortunetellers on television like Hosoki Kazuko (細木 数子 ). Foreign psychics have been turning up in Japan, such as John Croino (there’s a webpage devoted to his predictions here

    but it doesn’t include all of them unfortunately 😦

). He’s supposed to be unusual in some ways not quite human, but is reputedly very accurate. Doom and gloom predictions are making a big comeback. Psychics are often on Japanese TV, and have a huge media presence.

Despite the image of Japan presented in the American media, with the mix of ancient traditions mixed with ultra high technology, the Japanese have long been very pragmatic and cynical people. In my experience, most Japanese were even more sceptical about the spiritual, ghosts, and the supernatural, than the typical Westerner. After the big scare with the Aum Shinrikyo cult and it’s nerve gas attack on the Tokyo subways, most Japanese began avoiding cults and anything that was even slightly cult-like. “New Age” gurus and hippie spiritualism never got a real foothold – until very, very recently. Suddenly the Japanese have started to question their overwhelmingly materialistic society and the cynical attitude that getting rich and getting the latest gizmo consumer goods and staying in fashion is the ultimate goal to strive for. People are looking around for something more, and spooky stories, tales of hauntings, and psychics on TV are now the big interest. I’ve seen a resurgence of this interest especially in the past three years.

Personally, I believe that Japan is going through their own version of the American 1960s. Just look around at the super-short mini-skirts, and the recent fashion for teeny-tiny hotpants.


The doom and gloom is there too, and Christian missionaries have been flocking to Japan in larger numbers, sent by their various churches (in the USA in particular) to take advantage of the times.
