Gratitude, Mothman, & Open Lines

Date: 11-28-13
Host: George Noory
Guests: Brenda Knight, Open Lines

In the first half, writer, eco-activist and book publisher Brenda Knight talked about the power of gratitude to change and save lives. There is a movement toward gratitude on the planet right now-- instead of being filled with worry and anxiety, "if you just stop for one minute and think about what you're grateful for, it's going to turn your life around," she remarked. Knight starts each morning with a "gratitude practice," which includes counting her blessings, saying what she's grateful for, and then setting her intention for the day.

What you're looking for is also looking for you, but you have to create the conditions for it with your consciousness, she stated . Also, you have to edit what you say and think somewhat. For instance, if you say to yourself 'I'm not going to have love in my life,' then you're not because you're creating that reality for yourself, Knight explained. By becoming more conscious, aware, and specific, and setting the conditions, then good things will follow, she detailed. Related practices include affirming what you see as positive in other people, as well as participating in a "gratitude circle," a gathering of friends who break bread and share what they are grateful for and their intentions.

Knight also discussed her upbringing in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, the location of the original sightings of the Mothman, and how this impacted her perceptions. The legendary winged creature with glowing red eyes, originally sighted during the 1966-67 time period, may have been a kind of spirit messenger from Native Americans, she suggested. She related this concept to a curse placed by Chief Cornstalk (Hokoleskwa) in 1777. The Chief was murdered by militiamen, and betrayed by the settlers, and Mothman could have been his spirit animal acting as harbinger of the Silver Bridge disaster, she continued.

Richard C. Hoagland led off the second half of the show with a brief update on Comet ISON, followed by Thanksgiving Open Lines.

News guests: Gerald Celente, Steve Kates 'Dr. Sky', Peter Davenport
