Coronavirus Lock Down, Bad Dreams and Bad Sleep

Even under “normal” circumstances, 75% of Americans reported experiencing stress in the past month that resulted in sleepless nights at least once.1

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, stress levels are peaking for many, with 88% of workers surveyed by Human Resource Executive reporting moderate to extreme stress in the last four to six weeks,2 and 69% saying the coronavirus pandemic is the most stressful time of their professional career, even more so than 9/11 and the 2008 Great Recession.

This stress takes a toll on mental health and physical health alike. Prescriptions filled per week for antidepressant, antianxiety and anti-insomnia medications rose by 21% from February 16 to March 15, 2020, and 78% of the prescriptions for such drugs filled during the week ending March 15, when COVID-19 was declared a pandemic, were for new prescriptions, which suggests they’re a direct result of COVID-19-related anxiety.3

Sleep has emerged as one of the latest casualties of the pandemic, with Donn Posner, president of Sleepwell Associates and an adjunct clinical associate professor at Stanford University School of Medicine, calling the COVID-19 crisis a “perfect storm of sleep problems.”4

How the COVID-19 Pandemic Is Threatening Sleep

With people around the globe facing unprecedented levels of stress and anxiety, ranging from financial worries and anxiety to loneliness amid social distancing, sleep quality suffers.

The link between stress and poor sleep quality is strong,5 and as noted in the Journal of Sleep Research, “In the current global home confinement situation due to the COVID-19 outbreak, most individuals are exposed to an unprecedented stressful situation of unknown duration. This not only may increase daytime stress, anxiety and depression levels, but also can disrupt sleep.”6

Stress, however, is just one outcome of the COVID-19 lockdown that’s affecting sleep. Being largely confined to your home influences many factors that affect sleep quality, including disruptions to daily routine. If you’re furloughed, unemployed or working from home, you may sleep later than usual, go to bed later or be more likely to have an alcoholic beverage in the evening, all of which can potentially disrupt your sleep.

On a deeper level, many people are experiencing drastic changes in their work life, combined with homeschooling children, and without the ability to engage in rewarding activities such as visits with friends or family, sporting events or other entertainment venues as an outlet.

“For those required to work from home, there may also be disruption to established daily routines and working schedules, leading to a deterioration of positive associations between the home, relaxation and sleep,” the researchers noted.7

Stay-Home Orders Disturb Light Exposure and Social Ties

For others, social distancing measures may mean spending more time indoors and getting less exposure to daylight, another important factor in sleep quality. This is especially true for those living in homes with small windows or no access to an outdoor area.

Light intensity is measured in lux units, and on any given day, the outdoor lux units will be around 100,000 at noon. Indoors, the typical average is somewhere between 100 to 2,000 lux units — some two orders of magnitude less. So, when you spend all or a majority of your day indoors, you essentially enter a state of “light deficiency.”

The reason why light intensity is important is because it serves as the major synchronizer of your master body clock, which is composed of a group of cells in your brain called the suprachiasmatic nuclei. These nuclei synchronize to the light-dark cycle of your environment when certain wavelengths of light enter your eyes. You also have other biological clocks throughout your body, and those clocks in turn synchronize to your master clock.

So, if you want to get good sleep, you have to have properly aligned circadian rhythms, and step No. 1 is to make sure you get a sufficient dose of bright light exposure during the daytime — something that’s difficult to do if you don’t go outside.

Further, your pineal gland produces melatonin roughly in approximation to the contrast of bright sun exposure in the day and complete darkness at night. If you’re in darkness all day long, your body can’t appreciate the difference and will not optimize melatonin production. People living alone, particularly seniors, may also struggle with social isolation and loneliness that makes sleeping difficult.

“In fact,” according to the report, “a very recent study reporting on citizens’ well-being during the COVID-19 outbreak in China showed that those who scored higher on a measure of social participation and a sense of belonging also reported better sleep quality.8 A lack of regular social interaction can indeed enhance stress and negatively affect sleep quality …”9 Further, COVID-19 combined with stay-at-home orders interferes with sleep by:10

  • Keeping your mind racing, especially if you’re watching a lot of news, elevating your body’s arousal system response and triggering insomnia
  • Exposing you to blue light from screens, emitted by cellphones and tablets as you check the news one last time; the blue light interferes with the production of the hormone melatonin, causing further sleep troubles
  • Making you susceptible to depression, low energy and long daytime naps which may make it difficult to fall asleep at night

As noted by University of Chicago Medicine, “It’s not easy to function at our best without easy access to our usual coping skills (e.g., social support, exercise, etc.) while sheltering in place.”11

Strange Dreams and Risks of Sleep Problems During a Pandemic

Sleep is essential for life, and lack of sleep takes a heavy toll, raising the risk of chronic diseases, obesity and premature death. Sleep is also intricately related to immune function, with immune system activation altering sleep, and sleep altering the innate and adaptive arms of the immune system. When you feel sleepy during infection, it’s thought that sleep bolsters the immune system to defend against the pathogen.

Further, sleep is associated with a reduced risk of infection and can improve the outcome of infections if you’re ill.12 In short, sleep may help your immune system to prevent and fight COVID-19. According to University of Chicago Medicine:13

“Ample sleep supports the immune system, which reduces the risk of infection and can improve outcomes for people fighting a virus. On the other hand, sleep deprivation weakens the body’s defense system and makes people more vulnerable to contracting a virus.”

Mood disturbances are also likely and can lead to snowballing anxiety. If you’re anxious, it can make sleep difficult by activating your “fight or flight” response that keeps you on edge. Lack of sleep, in turn, can worsen anxious feelings.

Even modest, night-to-night reductions in sleep lead to increases in anxiety the next day.14 Matthew Walker, professor of neuroscience at the University of California, Berkeley, and author of the book “Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams,” told WBUR:15

“When you wake up in the middle of the night, typically we have this sort of Rolodex of anxiety that starts to flood back into our mind and we start to ruminate or catastrophize. Unfortunately, we know that it’s a two-way street as well, that if you’re not getting sufficient sleep or good quality sleep, you’re more likely to feel anxious the next day, and it develops this vicious cycle.”

Walker also states that coronavirus stress could be triggering strange dreams, particularly as people sleep in later in the morning, increasing the amount of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, during which dreams occur.

“REM sleep essentially provides the brain a form of overnight therapy [in which] dreaming helps process difficult emotional experiences. And we can think of that dream sleep like a nocturnal, soothing balm that takes the sharp edges off the emotional concerns and experiences that we’re having whilst we’re awake,” he said.16

That being said, if you’re having trouble sleeping, your ability to concentrate and be productive will also suffer. In one animal study, sleep-deprived mice lost 30% of the neurons located in their locus ceruleus, a nucleus in the brainstem associated with wakefulness and cognitive processes.17

According to one study, lack of sleep costs the U.S. economy up to $411 billion a year in lost productivity alone — and that’s during regular times, not a pandemic.18

Dealing With Sleep Problems During a Pandemic

Adults need an average of seven to nine hours of sleep a night, with most doing well with about eight. If you have trouble achieving this duration, or you wake frequently during the night, it’s time to take steps to improve your sleep. My 33 healthy sleep secrets details a comprehensive list of strategies for a better night’s rest.

For additional tips that can be applied specifically in terms of dealing with sleep problems during home confinement amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the researchers writing in the Journal of Sleep Research suggested the following, some of which mirror my own:19

Keep a regular bedtime and wakeup time; this will bring some structure to your day, especially for children

Schedule brief 15-minute times during the day to reflect about current events; use stress-relief tactics like journaling or the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) to process and reflect so you’re less likely to face racing thoughts at bedtime

Use your bed only for sleep; if you’re working from home, avoid working on your bed

Use the current situation to follow your natural sleep rhythm; if you’re a night owl, for instance, you may naturally prefer to stay up later and sleep later

Avoid screen time close to bedtime; turn off your cellphone and do not bring it into your bedroom

Limit your exposure to news about COVID-19

Exercise regularly, preferably in daylight

Get exposure to daylight each day and keep light dim in the evening, transitioning to pitch black at bedtime

Engage in activities that you enjoy doing during the day, and choose relaxing activities, such as yoga or reading a book, in the evening

Make your bedroom a quiet, dark, cool and relaxing environment that’s conducive to sleep

Benjamin Fulford 5/18/20 Report: Area 51 destroyed as Secret War intensifies

The battle for Planet Earth is entering a dangerous phase as at least three factions desperately fight for domination. This onslaught is now showing not only biblical but even otherworldly dimensions. The biblical aspect includes the occupation of the main holy sites of Islam by unknown forces. The otherworldly aspect includes an attack on area 51 and a downed UFO in Brazil. All this is happening while the Covid-19 scamdemic is being fought over by factions who just want to control humanity versus factions that want to kill most of us off.

Let us start with the otherworldly part of this battle. Here the U.S. government started openly recruiting staff for off-world work. The ad can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=9ud7wgbBBnY&feature=emb_logo

The release of this recruitment advert was followed by the murder of Air Force Col. Thomas Falzarano, who commanded the service’s 21st Space Wing. https://www.stripes.com/news/air-force/air-force-space-wing-commander-dies-at-peterson-air-force-base-1.629647

Then immediately afterward, there was a huge attack on the infamous Area 51 “UFO base.” The seismograph of the 6.5 magnitude quake that hit the base shows a sudden massive explosion, not a natural earthquake.

https://www.accuweather.com/en/severe-weather/6-5-magnitude-earthquake-strikes-nevada-shaking-felt-hundreds-of-miles-away/740300

Pentagon sources say “the hospital ship USNS Mercy left Los Angeles on May 15th as Nevada and Croatia were hit with quakes.” They say the ship was filled with arrested Satanists and hinted that they destroyed underground bases at both locations after children were rescued from underground adrenochrome manufacturing facilities.

The quakes were followed by a very unusual UFO sighting in Brazil followed by a crash of a UFO that was filmed by many people. A two-minute video showing the UFOs and the crash site can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pL9W7ME6elg

The U.S. Naval Intelligence linked site Sorcha Faal, for its part, claims the U.S. retaliated for the murder of Colonel Falzano by killing the Chinese Ambassador to Israel Du Wei. So why would the Navy think the Chinese orchestrated the murder of a space force commander?

It’s not clear, but several years ago a member of the Rothschild family introduced me to a representative of the Dragon family saying, “If you want to talk to China, this is as high as it goes.” The Dragon family representative told me the Chinese had off-world sponsors who threatened to put humanity under “very strict control” if they did not “get their act together.”

There are a lot of question marks surrounding these events but clearly something highly unusual is going on.

Now let us look at the Biblical part. Pentagon sources, in their version, say the Chinese Ambassador to Israel was killed because a Chinese Zionist faction was…

financially supporting Israeli efforts to annex more Palestinian land and build the third temple, thus triggering an end-times event. “The death of the ambassador may also cause China to stop investments in Israel while galvanizing even more international punitive actions against annexation,” the sources say.

“Jordan is so upset with the annexation that the King himself warned of a ‘massive conflict’ and may not just cancel the 1994 peace agreement but also the $10B gas deal with Israel,” they continue. In a warning to Israel they said:

“Egypt has powerful Russian radars that cover all of Israel from the South to complement Syrian radars from the North.”

The sources further noted that “The International Criminal Court has a stronger case against Israel with the Arab League declaring the annexation as a ‘new war crime’.”

Without U.S. backing and with Egypt, Jordan, Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Iran poised against it, Israel is facing an existential crisis. That’s why they formed a unified government now under the control of Satanist Benjamin Netanyahu. Upon taking power yet again Netanyahu said:

“We must never forget that we must rely on ourselves, for our security, the cornerstone of which is the IDF and security forces.” In other words “we are on our own now.”

It looks like the Israelis are also trying to invoke Moses by making a river there run red. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/11637903/israel-river-red-blood-like-biblical-plague-egypt/

The Israeli’s Satanic pseudo-Muslim allies in Saudi Arabia are also under extreme threat. Not only have they lost allies like the UAE and Qatar, but they are also now under attack from Yemen.

The cities of Riyadh, Mecca, and Medina have been under 24-hour curfew and shut off from the rest of the world since April 2nd. There are also reports that 70% of the population has been infected with the “coronavirus.” https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/coronavirus-saudi-arabia-mecca-most-population-infected

This could be a sign that the entire population is being culled. Some of the P3 Freemasons have an extremely deep hatred of Islam. That’s because they have waged a Holy War for over a thousand years against them. They also blame Islam for most of the world’s problems. Therefore, it’s entirely possible some sort reckoning is now taking place there.

Remember the “coronavirus” has been used as a cover for mass murder in Wuhan, China, and for the culling of Satanists inside the U.S.

Recall how last we noted the President of Tanzania sent various samples of food, animals, and materials disguised with human identities to the W.H.O. for coronavirus testing and most came back positive?

Well now the President of Madagascar, Andry Rajoelina, claims the World Health Organization offered a $20-million bribe to poison their Covid-19 medicine. https://greatgameindia.com/who-offered-20m-bribe-to-poison-covid-19-cure-madagascar-president/

There is plenty of evidence now coming out that this so-called pandemic was planned long in advance. The EU, for example, came out in 2012 with a pandemic comic book intended only for senior staff. The plot reads almost identically to what is going on now. Towards the end it read:

“The fear thus created can be put to good use” triggering a “global response…under the guidance of international technical organizations.”

You can download the whole comic from the EU website: https://op.europa.eu/en/publication-detail/-/publication/4cc2ea93-d003-417e-9294-1103a6ee877d

The elite have made many practice runs for this current “plandemic.” Here is what the World Bank had to say in 2017:

“The World Bank Group is working with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, to conduct the first set of pandemic simulation exercises that are designed to recreate a disease outbreak scenario to provoke a robust discussion about pandemic preparedness among policymakers. President Jim Yong Kim, Bill Gates and Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany will jointly host simulation exercises on pandemic preparedness for the Heads of State and private sector leaders during the next World Economic Forum in Davos in January 2017 and the G-20 Heads of State meeting in July 2017. https://blogs.worldbank.org/health/pandemic-simulations-preparing-catastrophe-we-hope-will-never-happen

The Chinese appear to be on board with the official Xinhua news site saying:

“Given the colossal hit on real economies and the highly interrelated global financial system, saving a globalized economy this time requires even stronger global collaboration.” http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/2020-05/18/c_139065941.htm

The EU comic book ends with an Asian and a European falling in love and kissing, implying that East and West are being united. The Chinese certainly support such a scenario.

The problem is that there is a faction using this misguided, if well-intentioned, exercise for much more sinister purposes.

MI6 sources now say:

“The obstacles [to starting the new financial system] are the acts of war and high treason as the WHO attempted to foist this hybrid total population control system by way of an induced global sickness. Ordo ab Chao type stuff.”

We appear to have at least three groups trying to use this plandemic to promote their own agendas.

1) The moderates who want a friendly planet where all countries work together to solve problems we all face i.e. a loose world government.

2) The control freaks who want to microchip us all and keep us under strict, centralized control. They are the ones calling for “social distancing” because their microchip control systems don’t work if people are too close together.

3) Finally, we have the radical messianic Zionists who still think we need to kill 90% of the world’s population and enslave the rest. These are the ones trying to kill us with 5G electromagnetic weapons, poisonous medicine, etc.

There is also a fourth group of isolationists under U.S. President Donald Trump that appears to want none of the above but have America go it alone.

This group is, in its own way, doing a lot to liberate the Republic of the United States from the Satanic owners of the U.S. Corporate government.

For example, it looks like they are about to free prison slave laborers. Last week Trump passed an executive order against forced labor. https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/eo-establishment-forced-labor-enforcement-task-force-section-741-united-states-mexico-canada-agreement-implementation-act/

The key point of this order is Section 307 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. § 1307). This “prohibits the importation of merchandise mined, produced or manufactured, wholly or in part, in any foreign country by forced or indentured child labor – including forced child labor.”

Of course, it may just be an excuse not to buy things from China. However, prison slave laborers are being freed across the U.S. now. https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/may/17/gavin-newsom-california-governor-eyes-prison-closu/

The nationalization of the Federal Reserve Board inside the U.S. is also starting to benefit average Americans. For example, two-thirds of Americans left unemployed by this pandemic exercise are now getting more money than when they were working. Also, the U.S. is finally rebuilding its long-neglected infrastructure. https://www.redstate.com/alexparker/2020/05/15/coronavirus-two-thirds-americans-making-more-unemployment-economic-stimulus-cares-act/

https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/executive-order-securing-united-states-bulk-power-system/

If the Americans did not nationalize the FRB, each baby born in the U.S. would start life with $6.4 million in debt compared with $80,000 in 1970 and $1.2 million in 2007.

The gnostic Illuminati controlled U.S. is also winning its battle against bloodline rule there. The bloodline families are now being forced to fight against Trump using a virtual Obama. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8328345/Donald-Trump-asserts-shutdowns-deadly-people-leave-house.html

There is also a lot of corruption being rooted out as can be seen from this Trump tweet:

“Joe Biden’s deadbeat son Hunter inked a $1.5 BILLION deal with China while Joe was Vice President. What did the Biden’s offer China in return? Obama was the most corrupt President in U.S. history.”

Also, former CIA and Marine intelligence officer Robert David Steele notes that “the certainty that NSA has every email, every text, every cell call, every game chat ever made by naked short selling and money laundering criminals on Wall Street — could yield a $100 trillion bonanza for President Donald J. Trump, who up to this point has been fooled into thinking that $15 trillion was the best he could get. Learn more at https://stopnakedshortselling.org”

It’s worth noting that foreigners dumped a record $300 billion in U.S. debt in March. https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/foreigners-dumped-record-amount-us-treasuries-amid-march-liqudity-crisis

Therefore, with U.S. industrial production dropping the most in 100 years and now operating at only 65% capacity due to a lack of imported parts, the Trump regime will have no choice but to make a deal with the moderate faction of the globalists. https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/us-industrial-production-plunges-most-over-100-years

We would like to conclude this week with some good news. It appears the tide has been turned on the human-caused mass extinction event. The positive signs in nature are many. For example, clearer skies are being noted around the world and the Himalayas can once again be clearly seen in India, humpback whale populations are back at levels not seen since before whaling started, Hainan gibbons are back from the brink of extinction and the first wild stork in hundreds of years was born in the UK.

Needed Discussion Regarding History and Victory


By Anna Von Reitz

First — regarding those pictures of Jacob Rothschild and Shimon Perez and others with elongated skulls that are being circulated on the internet — what you are seeing is the difference between Homo sapiens and Homo sapiens sapiens.

This is a difference between the “First Sons of Adam” and the “Second Sons of Adam”.

Remember the point in the Bible where our lifetimes were shortened?

The much longer-lived First Sons of Adam were phased out and the shorter-lived Second Sons phased in.

But the First Sons were not killed and continued to exist long, long after the Second Sons became more numerous and prevalent.

This resulted in the equivalent of a Family Feud quite apart from the contest between the Children of Eve and the Children of Satan.

The First Son v. Second Son battle is in physical, material terms, like a squabble between brothers. The fight between Eve’s children and Satan’s children takes place on a spiritual and mental epigenetic basis.

So we’ve had to deal with a Family Feud as well as a Spiritual War.

The First Sons of Adam have a problem when making their claims to own the Earth and all upon it, because their claim actually arises through Eve and was established through a Matriarchal culture, so they try to claim ownership of the Earth based on Patriarchal claims as the First Sons of Adam.

Think about it. In the singular instance of Eve, the husband and wife and their DNA is exactly the same, except for the extra portion of X chromosome added to Eve. Adam is entirely expressed within Eve, but Eve is not entirely expressed within Adam.

Add to that that nobody comes into this world in an incarnate form, except through Eve, and you have a very compelling case to say that all claims of everyone to inherit anything on this Earth are included within and come through Eve. Not Adam.

This shoots the claims of the First Sons as First-born sons of Adam in the foot, and in order to make their claims on the material Earth stick, they MUST resort to a Patriarchal system of Law governing rights of physical inheritance — which is nowhere to be found in Hebraic tradition.

They have to make their claim through a foreign Patriarchy, so the First Sons allied themselves with the Sons of Satan through Cain, who had likewise adopted the patriarchal Roman Law– both hoping to assert supremacy over the claims of Eve’s children.

They are two distinct and different groups, but over the centuries of their alliance, they intermarried and became more integrated and like each other. And both have fought with similar weapons of deceit and adultery and violence against us to no avail.

They never understood the fundamental reason that Adam was disqualified and why he lost both immortality and the right to inherit the Earth: his failure to accept responsibility for his own actions.
You cannot exercise dominion and take ownership without accepting liability, that is, responsibility for your own actions.

Time has gone on, and the First Sons, bent on their claims, and the Cain-anites fostered by Satan, forgot this most basic of all requirements, the same requirement that Adam failed.

In their cleverness, they got bound up in schemes and rationales and forgot why Adam was disqualified from inheriting the Earth.

By the Grace of the Living God, Eve’s children followed after their Mother, picked up their crosses, and accepted responsibility — even responsibility for actions that were not theirs.

Please notice that Yeshua (Joshua) the man you call Jesus accepted the punishment due the Roman Governor, the members of the Sanhedrin, and even Judas Iscariot — even the punishments due to me and you, all this he accepted responsibility for, as if the errors and wrong-doings and evil motivations and evil results were his own.

This is how he is owed eternal praise and how he overcame the failures of Adam— by accepting responsibility, not only for himself and any mistakes he made, but for all of us as well.

So now it becomes clear why we also overcome when we accept our responsibility for our own actions, for our families, and for our world.

It also becomes clear how the First Sons and the Cain-anite sons of Satan have failed — by thoughtlessly creating babies and abusing them and shoving them off on the public dole, by using and abusing their wives, by using and abusing the Earth — and then standing their with their filthy idols in hand, claiming that they are owed anything but condemnation in return.

They have also created all these corporations and then left them to “run amok’ in mindless pursuit of profit, and have allowed these THINGS they created to cause damage to innocent people without any reasonable acceptance of liability for any of it.

Note the example I gave you yesterday — first, they off-loaded the responsibility of the vaccine manufacturers for the damage their products cause to the government corporation that they claim is “representing” us—without our consent or a contract to do so— and second, when the governmental services corporation goes bankrupt, they propose to continue their operations with no liability at all.

But the right to conduct business in commerce depends upon acceptance of the liability of doing so. They are now out of business by definition and all across the board their corporations have no ability to continue to participate in interstate commerce of any kind.

They have also published remedies like HJR 192 to cover their butts for stealing gold belonging to others, and then purposefully obstructed access to the remedy and many other examples of bad faith, shirking responsibility, extorting others to pay their bills, and similar activities.

The First Sons and the Sons of Satan have struck out both in their private lives and in their public lives, too.

We have lived to see the days in which the results of the contest between Eve’s children and Satan’s children are decided, and indeed, you have all now heard the results.

Both the Earth and the World belong to those who take responsibility for their actions.

And Eve’s children are the only ones who have.

FLASHBACK: General Flynn and His Business Partner Targeted by Mueller and Obama’s Deep State for Reporting Obama and Clinton’s Ties to Islamic Terrorist in Pennsylvania

(Joe Hoft) On July 24, 2019 We published the following post regarding General Flynn.  We thought it was worth republishing today. 

The post FLASHBACK: General Flynn and His Business Partner Targeted by Mueller and Obama’s Deep State for Reporting Obama and Clinton’s Ties to Islamic Terrorist in Pennsylvania appeared on Stillness in the Storm.
