Ukrainian Man Claims to “Eat” Only Sunshine and Lives by the Law of Flowers

He feeds only on prana and solar energy. After arriving in a village where he lives, I saw a barefooted man standing on the porch. He was wearing a bright orange dress with the sun embroidered on the chest.

The man’s face looked otherworldly, his eyes glistened, and a smile crossed his face.

He moved about easily and seemed to be barely touching the ground. He did not have no sunken cheeks nor bags under his eyes. His skin was glowing from inside as if he were a happy teenaged girl.

It is obvious that Nikolai has become a qualified interviewee. He fell into the habit of giving interviews on a regular basis. A Japanese TV crew left the village a few days ago. They shot a film about Nikolai.

 

“The reason why I’ve become a “sun eater” has nothing to do with cutting down on grocery bills,” says Nikolai with a smile.

“This is a spiritual way. Why do all the religions of the world have Lent? It is designed to cleanse the soul and encourage the human being to think more of things lofty and get rid of morally low desires. Saying goodbye to food means a farewell to many carnal dependencies. I consume space energy in place of natural foodstuffs. But I had continually fasting for 14 years before I stopped coarse food altogether.

“I ate only kasha, vegetables, fruits and nuts. Then I switched to liquid foods – vegetable broths, cocoa and hot chocolate. And one day it came as a stunning revelation that I can do without any food. Since then I’ve been living on a strict diet of tea with honey and some boiling water with fish soup spices. I use only charged water that is taken off the stovetop one moment before it boils. I drink about ten cups a day. I get the rest of my food from the Sun and Cosmos. I can even feel my blood getting rejuvenated.

“Do you mean you stop feeling hunger as you stare at the sun?”

“I stopped feeling hunger a long time ago. The sun charges me with energy as if I were a battery. Some day everybody will be capable of running on solar energy. The trees and flower exist because of photosynthesis. And man is part of nature. There is a huge release of energy in the human body once man gets rid of coarse food. It’s the energy that was previously used for digestion. Man reaches a completely different level of mental and physical development.”

It was dawn on August 25th, 2003. On that day Nikolai Dolgoruki began living by the law of flowers. He stepped into his porch and instructed his internal organs three times to feed on space energy only. His body ran riot for two weeks. Nikolai dreamed about eating butter rolls.

Eventually, his hunger vanished in the ozone. He became indifferent to food and found complete peace of mind. Nikolai lost a mere 7 kilos after living for nearly a hundred days of solar diet. He used to suffer from pains in his heart and stomach. Nowadays Nikolai says his pains have been gone along with his excess weight.

“What is your superior goal? Do you intend to live longer or stay healthy? Don’t you think the price is too high?”

“A sun eater is on a mission to bring light, goodness and spiritual cleansing to the people. I help the people stay strong and happy in this cruel world. I direct my thinking to other galaxies.”

“Can you confirm that you’re not pulling some kind of a trick? Maybe you enjoy a quick burger by stealth?

“I’m ready and willing to show my abilities to anybody, be it doctors or scientists. Let them come and examine me. It’s okay with me. The Japanese TV crew that made a film about me had several researchers from the Institute of human body’s hidden abilities studies.

“They asked me to take a full medical examination including tests in our municipal hospital No 5. Besides, they spent a few days in my house monitoring my activities – trivial thins like I getting up in the morning, riding my bicycle, digging in my vegetable garden, doing a few push-ups and chin-ups. They put on record my personal achievement: I stared at the sun for 13 hours.”

“What did the results of the tests show?”

“The results say I’m a healthy person, no anomalies detected.”

You can find more examples of alleged “sun eaters” at this link.

Doctors at a regional center of nontraditional medicine of the Dnepr region comment in a cautious way on Dolgoruky’s experiment. According to them, the sun and space energy have nothing to do with the case. The man drinks a few liters of beverages to sustain his body’s activities.

Doctors say such foodstuffs as milk, tea, honey have everything our body needs to get on a regular basis. Those beverages contain calcium, protein, carbohydrates and microelements. His body got cleansed and overhauled thanks to a slag-free diet and a healthy life style. Not to mention his power of autosuggestion and his strong will – those qualities cemented the positive results.

A Major Energy Shift Is Here!

Source: In5D

by Alex Myles,

Highly Charged G2 and even G3 Level Solar Storms are Now occurring. Due to a Huge crack in our planet’s Electromagnetic Field, High Speed Solar Wind (Magnetized Plasma) will flow directly into Earth’s atmosphere, bringing with it major turbulence.

There have been even more flares over the last couple of days, and today and tomorrow turbulent G1, as well as Higher level G2 and even G3 Geomagnetic Storms are on the way.

We have had very few G2 level space storms this year – we are just going through a volatile period right now due to a bout of activity on the Sun, as we near the end of Aurora season.

Streams of High-Speed Solar Wind (hot magnetic plasma/gases) are traveling the 93 million miles from the sun to Earth at speeds that can reach up to 2 million miles per hour. These huge, highly charged clouds of wind that are headed our way contain up to 1 billion tonnes of particles,.

When Solar Wind escapes the Sun it enters space and the Highly-Charged Wind buffets Earth’s magnetic field (protective bubble) and causes friction here on Earth. This includes power grid fluctuations, disruption to navigation systems, impacts on high-frequency radio waves, possible damage to satellites orbiting Earth, weather extremes, the confusion of mammals on beaches as their internal compass goes out of sync, and also impacts the human energy field – in particular those who are highly sensitive to energy (empaths).

Solar Storms temporarily disturb the Earth’s Magnetosphere, as solar winds and flares interact with Earth’s electromagnetic fields. Humans are also affected because we each have a personal electromagnetic field that surrounds us—an aura. Therefore, in the same way electromagnetic energy affects our planet, it can also play havoc with our own energy fields.

This wind has been buffeting our planet’s electromagnetic field at such intensity that it has caused a huge crack in it. This means that far higher amounts of gases than normal are pouring into our atmosphere.

These cracks, also known as Portals, allow the Highly vibrating energy to flow directly in from the Universe and impact and disrupt energetic particles on Earth – including humans.

A Portal allows rapid travel between dimensions of two distant locations in the Universe, for example, from the Sun to Earth. The Portal is a temporary period of life-changing transformation which allows us the opportunity to experience with a full, Conscious Awakening through Renewed Energy, Limitless Possibilities, Higher Wisdom, increased levels of Love and Wisdom. This is a tremendous opportunity to align with the Universe’s Energy.

Research has found that Geomagnetic Storms can cause us to experience Huge Energy Shifts, as our human Electromagnetic field absorbs incoming celestial elements – which can alter and transform us at Cellular Level.

During Solar Storms, masses of luminous energy infiltrate Earth’s atmosphere, and this can feel overstimulating; so we may notice our energy, as well as the energy of the people around us, feels super intense, as though everyone is more irritable, emotional, anxious, fatigued, spacey, or stressed out than normal.

Solar Storms are known to desynchronize our circadian rhythm (our internal biological clock that controls our sleep and wake times.) This is due to our Pineal Gland being affected by Electromagnetic Energy, producing an increase in Melatonin—thus disturbing our sleep and throwing our intuition and inherent orientation out of sync. Therefore, we may suffer from disrupted sleep patterns, exhaustion, and vivid dreams during a solar storm, and we also may have enhanced intuition and psychic awareness.

Our Pineal Gland, also known as our “third eye” senses Light and is associated with Enlightenment. It is believed to enhance Psychic Awareness, Activate Consciousness, and be the connection between the Physical and Spiritual world. When our third eye is fully open, we have the ability to see things not normally visible to the naked eye, such as past and future events, thought forms, energy, and spirits.

Common symptoms people experience during Energy Shifts

  • Pressure headaches Feeling out of sorts, or unbalanced
  • Flushes
  • Dizziness, nausea
  • Exhaustion
  • Ear ringing
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Confusion, foggy mind, forgetful
  • Temporarily misplacing items
  • Disturbed sleep patterns
  • Anxiety, stress, irritability, sadness
  • Nervousness, worry, fear
  • Overwhelm
  • Heightened awareness, enhanced intuition, insights that seem to appear from ‘nowhere’
  • Difficulty tracking time (time either feels too slow or at great speed)
  • Noticing synchronicities, i.e. certain number patterns reappearing
  • Premonitionsintense dreams or nightmares
  • Struggles with communication
  • Electronic devices messing up

The reason for much of the above is that our personal vibration is on a frequency that is much lower than the vibration of the new energy incoming from the Sun / Universe.

What to do during an Energy Shift

To benefit from the Energy Shift and lift our vibration so that we raise our Consciousness Awareness and ease any negative symptoms, we can do the following:

  • Drink plenty of filtered water (not tap water).
  • Take saltwater baths.
  • Meditate and remain aware of recurring thoughts and feelings.
  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol.
  • Spend time in Nature.
  • Consume high vibrational foods, such as fruits and vegetables.
  • Remind yourself that everything in the universe is made up of energy and that conscious thought and intention can instantly alter how we think and feel.
  • Breathe deeply, forgive, release, and surrender.
  • Practice Kindness, Compassion, Acceptance, and Empathy.
  • Remain aware of recurring thoughts and feelings.
  • When possible, temporarily disconnect from technology, and anything that feels energetically toxic or draining.
  • Listening to Binaural Beats can really help balance and Cleanse Energy Fields during Space Storms.

What to expect during an Energy Shift

  • Heightened Emotions – Intuition & Sensitivity,
  • Nostalgia – Memories
  • The Past Resurfacing
  • Restlessness
  • Fatigue
  • Strange Dreams / Nightmares

A Major Shift here – you will no longer tolerate things you allowed in the past. It is time for a NEW BEginning.

Awakeners Are Agents Of Change

Nothing in this Universe happens by chance even the most insignificant event is there for a purpose. Life is a journey of experiences and everyone of your experiences holds value.

Throughout our life we meet different people that play different roles and serve different purposes. Some teach us life lessons and some leave no lasting impression at all. Some are meant to stay with us forever and some are not.

There are people that are meant for you to meet in your lifetime just to Awaken you. These Awakeners are agents of change. They might at first ruffle your feathers and make you feel very uncomfortable but there’s a reason for you meeting. They are there to directly or indirectly initiate change.

These people will make you realize that you will not move forward unless you initiate some kind of change. These people will awaken your inner dormant potential that would’ve remained asleep if you would’ve stayed stagnant.

There are those people that are there only to remind you, to remind you to stay focused on your purpose in life. These people are there to remind you of who you truly are. These people show you how to grow and stretch your mind. They show you things that you are not able to learn for yourself.

Then there are people that play an insignificant role in your life. People you meet on the subway, in the coffee shop, at the grocery store etc. These people are mainly meant to hold space for you. These are people you make small talk with and have no connection beyond that. These insignificant encounters are there to cheer you on your journey, they are members of your soul family playing an important role in your life in very small fragments of time.

The ones that stay and stick by you forever are rare to find but are the most precious ones. They are our closest friends, partners and immediate family. Most of them are members of your soul group. These people are with you because they usually share a similar mission.

Observe Discern Accept

If we are a person that has primarily linear, mental and social orientation, it takes devotion and discipline to reach discernment of one’s mental impulses and develop Self Awareness. Our society has developed our negative ego as the primary identity of which is recognized as the self. The stronger and more dominating the Ego Mind, the higher the academic pursuit or repetitive conditioning, those groups of people have the hardest time naturally recognizing negative ego, false identity and releasing the Mind Control.

When learning about the functions of the mind it may seem like a purely educational study. However, this is the key to transcending the Negative Ego, transcending mind control which oppress higher Consciousness and suppress higher sensory and feeling functions. One cannot only think themselves to higher consciousness. One must allow the deeper feelings, emotions and sensory experience to override the strict intellectual control the ego has over the body and mind. See ES Core Triad.

Observe, Discern and Accept

Practicing Meditation and developing the observer point is the critical skill which can be learned, trained and developed to discipline an unruly ego mind. With an unruly and undisciplined mind one cannot reach higher consciousness and access higher sensory perception. The process is one of self-observation and gaining increased self-awareness. Through dedicated observation of the self and gradually discerning between these functioning aspects of the mind, one can attain the direct experience of the consciousness they are. The still point of which this consciousness connects to in the parts of our mind is that which forms all of our thoughts, emotions, and experiences that direct us through life.

To begin this process one must observe the functions of the mind and discern them in action and intend to return that part of that mind function, or thought back into the internal still point or neutral. As we observe the thought, action or behaviour in ourselves externally, we source this as an aspect of our mind that is connected to the internal whole and return that thought to the still point of consciousness inside our heart.

In the earlier stages this is the intention and goal of specific meditation to become aware of inner stillness without the mind interfering. Later it is a walking meditation in which every single thought, behaviour and activity is witnessed by the Observer Point in the day to day activity. As this skill is developed this becomes possible with little to no effort to remain in the Observer Point. It is at this point a massive leap in higher consciousness and awareness of sentient forms may be experienced.

To allow the deeper comprehension of the self to discern the functions of mind one will need to discern the functioning of each part of the mind and accept its nature without judgment of its content. This means to train the mind one must learn to observe, discern the part of the mind and accept its nature. Through observation, discernment and acceptance one can train the mind to be disciplined back to neutral, which allows access to still point of higher consciousness. An everyday quick tool to train the mind:• Observe • Discern • Accept • Neutral

Observing Multiple Functions of the Mind

Once in meditation there is ability to Observe, Discern and Accept thoughts back into Neutral, the next stage is to develop skill in coordinating multiple functions of the mind that happen simultaneously. Set the intention to coordinate the multiple functions of speaking, behaviour and actions while at the same time observing the inner thought process.

Observing one’s communication, speaking and actions reveal the underlying thought process and belief system which is operating in the mind. When we observe our movement and words they reflect the contents of the mind. We may learn our mental and emotional state by observing our gestures, body language, our actions, behaviours and words. This is helpful for people who are not aware of their feelings on the surface and have little emotional recall. This way one can learn how to identify current states of sensory feelings. What are you feeling now? What is your body doing? What part of your body does not remain still or stationary?

While observing outward actions and speech, directly observe the inner process of thoughts and feelings at the same time. In the earlier stages one may have realizations delayed later after the action occurs. The goal is to become aware at the moment, fully present to observe the outward actions and behaviours along with the inner thoughts, while they are occurring in that moment.

In full presence in the now moment, observe the outward actions, behaviours or words while observing the inner thoughts and observe how all of these parts have their own function and yet are interacting with each other. This may take some practice however; this skill brings heightened awareness along with a sense of inner peace.

 

Dissolving the Negative Ego

Source: Calm Down Mind

Here I am using “negative ego” as a term, I am not using “negative” as an adjective to define ego. The ego is basically the “I” reference in our physicality, and inherently it’s essential for our physical existence to have a structure, meaning and perspective.

The problem is basically with the negativity that creeps into the ego structure owing to garnering negative perception. With time, the ego structure keeps growing in the strength of its negativity to the point where it acquires a very powerful standing in your being. It becomes an “entity” that has a voice of its own, it’s like a negative person living inside you.

It’s very normal to take this “negative ego” to be who we are, and this becomes very dangerous because now we start protecting this structure in us – we become attached to it.

We fear its dissolution, we defend it, repair it, attract people who can keep fueling it and basically keep away from anyone who might cause it to be brought down (have you noticed a part of you that just hates this whole “alignment” process and basically wants to defend its right to be negative).

Why dissolving your negative ego is so hard

Dissolving the negative ego is one of the most challenging experiences one goes through during the process of alignment, it’s much more challenging that the release of “past” negative energy accumulation in our body/being.

The reason it’s challenging is because we take ourselves to be the negative ego and so its dissolution feels like our own dissolution, or a psychological suicide – it’s literally a death of a certain personality in us, a certain identity that we took to be who we are.

And the fact is that only after the dissolution of a large part of the negative ego do we start glimpsing that it’s not who we are – there is a lot of joy in this realization, but the process of allowing the dissolution of this negative ego, till this point, is a work of understanding.

Without proper understanding it’s really easy to hold onto to this negative ego, and keep defending it as who you are.

It’s tricky business because the “negative ego” becomes such a strong identity in your brain that it starts protecting it as a necessary part of survival, and anything that’s threatening its dissolution is taken to be the enemy.

It’s so easy to see this in people (especially the intellectual ones), how they come up with some really clever arguments to defend the presence of the negative ego, for most others the argument always is that “it’s too damn tough to let go of it”.

What drives the negative ego?

The part in you that always finds a way to be unhappy is the negative ego, period.

The negative ego can’t be happy for long even though it does promise you that it will be happy if only it has “——-” (fill in the blanks).

Actually, the negative ego clings to the desire produced in the moment, and uses it as a means to feel even more unhappy by stating that “I don’t have this, and I won’t be happy until I have this”. So the desire by itself is not the problem, the problem is that the negative ego clings to it and makes it into a new reason for being unhappy.

In fact, it also starts feeling negative about the desire, it starts doubting the desire and uses it as a means to proclaim unworthiness delving into throes of self-pity, blame, resentment, anxiety and anger. I am sure this is a good enough description for you to see this entity in you – it’s so evident and its behavior is the same in all the minds.

The negative ego is fueled by your identification, your attention, your interest, your belief and your servility towards it. Without your identification, it can’t sustain itself because it’s just a “thought force”.

Why you need to dissolve the negative ego and not try to change it?

The deal is that you can’t change the negative ego into a positive one, you just need to dissolve it and the natural wholeness of your being comes to the front.

The negative ego can put on a pretense of being positive for a while, but anyone who has an iota of awareness can see through this charade – you can sense the fear behind the show of positivity.

Since the very structure of the negative ego is based on lack and fear, it can’t ever be positive, not for long. The only way towards freedom is to dissolve its force in you to the point where it’s influence becomes “zero”. This process will take time, and it can feel like a real war in your mind for a while, and it can be tiring – however the more understanding/awareness you have, the faster you allow the dissolution to be.

There can be a few surprises where you feel really certain that you are done with the negative ego only to be struck with a new episode of its “emergence” triggered by some events or some thought – you can feel flabbergasted by its intensity, and wonder if you will ever be free of it. But the deal is that when it really done, it’s really done – until then it will keep emerging. At some point you will be stable enough to not be shaken up by its emergence and you can deal with it quite easily – when you reach this point you feel a sense of “power” within you, and it’s what I call a place of inner stability.

When you lack an inner stability, when the negative ego is in the foreground, you “become” it – it’s just like being possessed, and this causes you to start believing that this is who you are, thus creating a cycle of identification and reinforcement.

People who have some awareness can always see the “real you” (or the possibility of you) below the surface of the negative ego, this is because we always carry the vibration of our “higher self” (or ideal self) within us which is evident to anyone who is sensitive to it – when you sit alone with yourself you can also sense this ideal self within you, like your inner being that just feels submerged in the layers of the negative ego.

Identifying the negative ego

The most important requirement to start dissolving the negative ego is for you to identify it in your mind.

As long as you take yourself to be the negative ego it’s not easy to dissolve it, because you will constantly keep defending it, protecting it, repairing it and pampering it. What feels like your “ideal self” is actually your true self, there is no two ways about it, and this is the self that comes to the foreground when the negative ego dissolves.

So any part of you that does not feel congruent with your sense of your ideal self is part of the negative ego. It takes some brutal honestly to really start seeing the negative ego for what it is.

Another characteristic of the negative ego, that you can identify it by is that it’s never driven purely by love mostly because it’s rooted in “lack” and love is a loss of lackful-ness. Under the influence of the negative ego, everything is made into a means to an end, a possession, a way of self-enhancement, an achievement, a means of approval/acceptance, a means of entertainment, a means of security etc, and it’s not long before it brings this tendency even to the purest forms of love.

Love, in its true form, is the only feeling which goes beyond the survival mode and it’s the most liberating feeling because when you are in love there is no “negative ego” involved – it just feels like the real you. It’s just that, it’s not long before the negative ego creeps in and basically corrupts this love in some way owing to its sense of lack. It need not even be love for a person, it could be love for a body of work, for a vision, for a desire etc, the purity of it is destroyed when it’s infiltrated by the negative ego and it becomes more or less artificial, losing its sense of depth.

A work done from love has a depth that can never be achieved by a work done as a means to an end. When you love someone for who they are without the need for possession it has a completely different depth to it. The negative ego will convince you that it’s impractical to live a life driven by love, and when you buy into this argument you basically sign up for a life of drudgery and deadness that just starts eating into you with time no matter how hard you try to cover it up with distractions.

Actually, the negative ego is really easy to identify, it’s just that in many of us it’s in such a force that we are totally taken up in it; we never consider stepping back and observing it for what it is. It’s a heavy baggage on your being to contend with the constant resistance of the negative ego.

The momentum of the negative ego causes you to fear it and you would rather give in to it rather than dis-identify from it – it’s like giving in to a bully out of the fear of being beaten up, it’s really no different. A lot of us claim that we are bullied by our mind, and it’s very true considering the fact that the negative ego is like “another person” within us, just that this person runs on the fuel of fear. Your true self, or your inner being, runs on love, that’s all that drives it and it doesn’t need love, it is love and it is self-sustaining.

The negative ego constantly “needs” love, approval, security and compassion from the outside, and it’s always on a blame game routine.

We are so taken up by the negative ego in our society that it’s almost considered “stupid” to have an integrity or an innocent honesty – being manipulative, shrewd, calculating and cold are considered worthwhile traits to imbue, it’s called “learning the ways of the world”, it doesn’t speak much about such a world.

This is one reason why people perceive it as being dangerous to be “innocent”, because the sense is that the world is filled with people ready to exploit your innocence – this obviously causes us to become even more closed, creating a strong fortress of negative ego. The only problem is that a negative ego can only attract more negative egos in your reality, there is no getting around it.

We desire a reality filled with people of integrity and innocence, but we are unwilling to have the courage to first be that ourselves (you can’t attract what you are not being) – if not outside, atleast within you align with honoring your innocence, stop trying to be so “cold” and calculative. When you see innocence, and honesty, in others honor it, instead of trying to exploit it to your benefit or putting it down – a lack based, and cynical, mindset is the hallmark of a negative ego.

Disintegrating the negative ego

Poison for the negative ego is when you are no longer identified with it – it takes time, and it’s a war in its own right, a war between your inner being and your negative ego.

Just that the way of the inner being is the way of a peaceful warrior – it wins by “allowing” fully. The mind feels like a battlefield for a while when you start disengaging from the negative ego – emotional blackmails, stark threats, projected doom are the ways in which the negative ego will try to pull back your identification, it will want to survive at all costs and the only way it can survive is by pulling your identification.

Of course, the moment you become aware of the negative ego is basically its death knoll, this awareness ensures that you will see it for what it is even if you become pulled in it by it – with time you will be able to see through most of its gimmicks to the point where you are no longer taken in by it. Awareness comes from understanding and honest observation, and it’s the only force that can free you of the grip of negative ego.

An important understanding is to realize that the dissolution of the negative ego does not happen through “fighting it” but by allowing it fearlessly without identification – if you fight it by trying to suppress it or hating on it, it just fuels it indirectly.

When you allow the momentum of the negative ego, in you, to dissolve (through the state of allowing), you will start seeing glimpses of your inner being come to the forefront. Initially they are just temporary glimpses and it leaves you with a sense that may be it’s not you, that it’s just some “experience” of goodness, but with time you will sense this inner being becoming you (it was always you to start with) in this physical expression, with no “gap” – it no longer feels like there are two of you, you just feel unified and whole. This is an end of conflicted behavior and resistance, allowing a harmonious expression to follow.

Once you start getting a glimpse of your inner being coming to the forefront, the negative ego can feel even more suffocating, and it’s a good thing, because it allows you to let go of it more easily. You must understand that it’s pure “physics” that this force built over years will take time to ebb away.

However, the advantage is that without your identification it burns away in short time (an approximation would be that it would take 4-6 months to sense inner stability and after that some more months to see a total dissolution) since it’s not supported by your life-stream as it were. Of course, if you keep identifying with the negative ego, it just takes more time to dissolve it – so it’s also a question of attitude.

It’s not an easy journey but it’s a journey that you can’t avoid for long because there is bound to come a point where the negative ego hits the threshold of imbalance, creating suffering which directly triggers the need for growth. When I say it’s not an easy journey I just mean that it can be physically fatiguing to deal with this intense play of energy (the negative ego has a strong force) within you, to go through a period of feeling a bit “dysfunctional” because you are in a limbo between the negative ego and the inner being, to see several parts of your external reality (that were fueled by the negative ego) dissolving, to deal with the fear of uncertainty created by being in this limbo.

Frankly, this journey is one of the best adventures you can ever be on, it’s something you wish you could avoid when you are going through it but something you know you didn’t want to miss when you are done with it. It leaves you a different person.
