In a recent post I examined how in reality, we are captured by a system which keeps us working towards goals and agendas not our own, in effect, wage slaves. Because we cannot break free from our need for that which our owners control, the flow of money. Not unlike hamsters in a cage; we run our own rat race over & over without a lot to show for it; but it keeps us busy and distracted from the reality of our situation.
For over 30 million people there is no such luxury of diversion, they must consciously live each moment of their lives without any of the things we consider essential for life, because they are the victims of human trafficking. Right now, here today on this planet; there are more humans in slavery than in the 300 year history of the Atlantic slave trade!
Human trafficking is a global phenomenon which is fueled by poverty, gender discrimination and plain old greed. Slavery generates over 32 Billion dollars globally each year. Recent studies estimate that 26% of slaves are under the age of 18, and that as many as 50% of commercially sexually exploited children are boys.
There are basically five types of human trafficking which occur every day around the world: Forced labor, the white sex slave trade, the trafficking of children for sexual exploitation. Then there is debt bondage, and trafficking for organ removal.
Forced Slave Labor:
Those sold into a life of forced labor and no hope of freedom; until the sweet release of death. In this part of the flesh trade they seek out and exploit the strong, poor and uneducated with "paying work" which soon becomes forced labor. This includes the use of force, fraud or coercion to obtain some kind of labor or commercial sex act. While there may not be chains and cages in a literal sense; most of these slaves are kept in line thru violence and intimidation.
huge illegal commercial fishing fleets are operated by slave labor. The crews are seldom if ever paid the wages
promised, and in many cases are kept at sea being shuttled from boat to boat
which prevents escape. Early immigrants
to America were
often tricked into forced labor working for "the company" or
"the store" which always arranged it so the workers debt to the
company for room and board amounted to equal what was owed in wages, making it
impossible for workers to either get ahead or leave. Sound at all familiar, does it?
Migrant workers have always had to suffer through whatever changing and often brutal conditions awaited them in the fields. You just go along to get along; and hope not to get a beat down or worse. All of these atrocities are taking place you know, after slavery was made illegal.
Next there is the white sex slave trade: wherein Caucasian girls, boys and young women are literally abducted right off the street to never be seen by family again. Unlike a traditional prostitution operation, white slavers are looking for very specific types of people because they are shopping. White slavers are the personal shoppers of the most depraved examples of humanity you can ever imagine.
In the white slave trade, young blonde, blue eyed American girls and women are the most sought after prize, and fetch the highest price. Sometimes actual slave auctions are conducted in lavish accommodations, with each slave going to the highest bidder. Usually such a sex slave is sold or bartered several times before they're no longer acceptable because of damage from abuse.
65% to 80% of trafficked girls have Aids/HIV and some contract several
STD's at once. It is quite common for white slavery victims
to be beaten and tortured both physically and mentally, to break their spirit
and to control them thru brutality.
Unfortunately the life expectancy can be short for white slaves as
insatiable appetites desire the young, fresh and terrified. This means that young white girls and women
are always at risk for abduction because the white slave trade runs on a
constant supply of fresh meat, just like the cows, fish or any other livestock
sold in bulk.
There perhaps is nothing in this world more depraved than the trafficking of children for commercial sexual exploitation. This goes way beyond the traditionally envisioned plight of kidnapped children by a sole deviant pedophile and includes children abducted for use in mass produced commercial gay and pedophile sex videos.
Children go missing in the blink of an eye from crowded public places way too frequently, which is what inspired the practice of putting their photos on milk cartons in hopes that someone recognizes them and calls authorities. Unfortunately, when these children have exceeded their usefulness they are quite often simply killed and deposited in an unmarked grave. Sometimes these abducted and abused children survive into adulthood damaged and scarred so badly that they themselves become abusers, and possibly even abductors.
Then of course there are entire cults based upon the lifelong sexual abuse of children such as the infamous Children of God pedophile cult from the 60's which still operates today as the Family.* I suppose that tells us something important about our species; that a pedophile cult can operate freely for forty years without law enforcement worries. I don't want to believe that this is who we really are, but the evidence does seem to point solidly in that direction, and directly at us as a species. Why do we allow this?
The forth type of human trafficking is Debt Bondage, or "bonded labor" which occurs when a person or group of people are bound into "involuntary servitude" to pay off a debt or other obligation. In these scenarios the amount owed and duration of labor are usually undefined, unspecified or it keeps changing to keep the slaves in bondage.
Human trafficking for organ removal is the newest wrinkle in the shadowy world of kidnap for profit. It began as what some thought was a new urban legend about someone being slipped a mickey in the bar only to wake up in a bathtub full of ice, with a hangover and a set of fresh stitches where their kidney once was. Those were the early days where folks were lucky. Nowadays the practice has advanced and become more efficient which often leaves the unwilling donor dead in a dumpster in the alley.
In recent years inner city gangs have discovered the lucrative flesh trade market to be one of low risk and high reward; and have added human trafficking to their list of illicit modes of income.
is the kidnap capitol of the united states with over 370 cases just last year. That
rate is higher than anywhere except Phoenix, Arizona Mexico city.
597,000 people are kidnapped every year by non family members, at a national rate of 2000 disappearances a day! The overwhelming majority of these people are never seen again by their friends and family. In
there are as many as 100,000 active missing person cases
at any given time.
Aside from and different than commercial human trafficking, is the equally horrible plight of women held as sexual prisoners in private residences all over America, and the world. Every so often someone escapes from such conditions to reveal that in fact; monsters live among us. These monsters don't abduct women and children for profit but rather their own sick, perverted pleasure. Sometimes the psychological control over such victims is so great that their captors even take them out into the world they were taken from, confident and assured they won't try to escape or elicit help!
Every single time this happens, when the reporters interview the neighbors it's the same story. Model neighbors, kept to themselves, and nobody ever saw or heard anything strange or odd. In
this phenomenon is like an iceberg; we only see the tip of the problem, with
untold thousands more we never hear about until it's too late.
Yet another type of slavery is domestic bondage; where a woman stays in a relationship only because she fears injury or even death if she tries to escape. There are two distinct types of domestic bondage. One is born out of misogyny where the wife is intimidated and controlled throughout the marriage because insecure men fear their women will find someone better and leave, so they make them emotional prisoners. Children in the home are used as pawns by such men. Fear of harm to self and child makes many women into emotional and psychological slaves as well as physically. The strongest chains are unseen.
The other type of domestic bondage is when sexual predators/pedophiles find a victim particularly appealing, and they desire them. It's not enough to just sexually abuse underage girls, they must possess them through forced marriage, with shame and intimidation being the glue that holds it together. Many times these forced marriages last decades, resulting in children born into the situation who are then in turn abused and made psychological captives. Living a life of fear with zero self esteem is all these girls and women know in many cases; and only the very strong and the very fortunate manage to endure and survive escape somehow. The vast majority never do because it's a taboo subject in 'polite society' and nobody wants to know.
As sovereign souls, we are all connected to each other on an energetic level; although we've been conditioned not to be aware of that fact, and programmed to forget everything the soul knows about self-empowerment and enlightenment. This connection we all share is why we can have empathy for strangers we don't know who suffer tragedy in some form or another. It's why we pull together in times of unexpected emergency; it's why we run into burning buildings to rescue people trapped inside. We do such things and even greater not out of some vague sense that we must or should; but because we feel that connection in our heart chakra. Deep down inside, in the silence at the heart of things, we all KNOW that inside of every other human being there is another
Warriors of Light
It's a hard but necessary thing to say, that women; young girls & boys in our society will continue to be targeted and taken to feed the flesh trade. Needless to say, the subject of human trafficking is not one that lends itself to polite conversation among friends. It has joined the growing list of things going on that must not be discussed openly and that just plays into the hands of the traffickers. Because so very often those who pay the traffickers are in the upper layers of society and politics; human trafficking is financed from the very highest levels. Those whose sick perversions drive a high desire for fresh and unspoiled victims; will never allow the human trafficking trade to be stopped. It will continue unabated as it has for centuries and there seems little we can do to end the practice.
If this problem is too ugly and perverted to engage on the physical plane, then we must engage it in the energetic ethereal plane of our dreams, nightmares and meditations. We need to kick it up a level and put out a call for warriors of light.
In our prayers and meditations we can program thought forms empowering for the release of all souls in bondage and send them back to the planetary grid, that web of energy which connects us all as sovereign souls.
We can work as individuals in unison without ever knowing or speaking to each other; it's all done energetically on the astral plane, in the ethereal realm. Working alone but together we can send a tsunami of white light and prayers for our brothers and sisters in captivity.
We can also reach out with our energy and intent to connect with trafficked humans around the world, sending them white light for strength and perhaps messages of hope. Just for a moment picture yourself in their situation, and think about what kind of energy you'd most want from all of us "free" slaves; then send them that.
The Hopi Indians of the American southwest have one of the most beautiful of spoken languages. They have a word, Powaqqatsi (pronounced: Pow-a-gatsi) which when translated to English means "Parasitic way of life" which perfectly describes what life on planet earth has become.
We are a captured species, but only the 30 million trafficked human slaves really understand that. The rest of us go thru our daily lives thinking we're free because the strongest chains are unseen. Because we choose not to perceive that we are without chains yet still in bondage.
From human trafficking down to predatory business tactics life is indeed parasitic; with the very worst of us owning the rest of us in every way that matters. Why do we permit this system to exist which always places profit over people? Why don't we have a voice in whether our food contains GMO toxins? Why do our protests never seem to bring about change? As the late Bill Hicks asked; "Why do we always kill the good guys, and let the monsters run amok?" Ironically a single truth answers all of those questions ...
Slavery was never abolished, it was just expanded to include everybody.
