“This thought stopped me in my tracks. The Lord God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, DELIGHTS in me. Not in some future me, not in my best me, but he delights in me RIGHT NOW, just as I am. He set His love on me and wants me to cling to Him. He longs for me. Desires me. And He feels that way about YOU. He delights in YOU. Think about this for a minute. Let this thought sink into you. He delights in YOU……..”

Loren ta Cedric senses something different about flame-haired, falcon-eyed woman who saves him. A healer, wreathed in raw, dark power, who wields knives with deadly skill.

Always wanted to know more about Aboriginal Australia? Come on a journey through time with warriors of the enigmatic Fethafoot Clan. For 65,000+ years my clan have solved problems for the Australian Heart-rock people. Now for the first time in our history you can explore our stories. My Clan’s name and its mysteries have always been kept out of public knowledge and history, in my home of Australia. It’s the way the Clan work. To do what they do, secrecy is a prerequisite to safeguard the work and people. For the first time in our long, oral history, we have a means to reveal the long and intriguing history of our covert Clan to other Australians, to the many new people’s who now call this majestic land home: and, to the modern world at large.
If you were born in Australia, you may have even heard such stories told around campfires and family meals, about the Australian Aboriginal magic man – or Kadaicha, as our people named our Clan many years ago. We call ourselves: the Fethafoot.
During the 10 tales, you’ll find that many of the elder warriors were advanced in spiritual travel and did not travel via ‘shanks pony’ – as the act of walking is often called in Australia. Instead, they used the ancient Dreamtime ‘creation-lines’ running across our country, to move swiftly across their lands. Thus, in a mixture of fear and awe the Clan became known as the Fethafoot – half-man, half-spirit beings – who could come and go at will, leaving no trace. Kadaicha spirit-warriors; The Fethafoot.

It retains a beautiful and haunting style of composition in which we are given an unfettered look into the thought processes -however different than our own- of mental illness and the brutal honesty of it. The often lyrical style and lightness of the rhyme arrangements that juxtapose the weight of the concepts discussed within are powerful and unique among contemporary poems.

The year was 1941; it was a warm summer day in the Bronx…
I waited until all my boys were inside the building, and then I turned to look at Graysen. “First of all, Mr. Cooper, I want to thank you for coming to Frankie’s rescue. I don’t know what would have happened to my son if you hadn’t come to his aid when you did. I appreciate that very much.” I noticed him step closer to me, and I backed up a few steps to see him grinning again.
I turned my head to the side and then licked my dry lips. “Second of all, I don’t appreciate you encouraging my son to lie to his father. He must be punished for disobeying him.”
He stepped closer to me once again, but this time he put his hand out and grabbed onto my wrist. “Why would you want your son to be punished by a man who hurts you, Mrs. Klatt?” Then he let go of me but continued to stare into my eyes. “Just a thought, but after hearing what you went through a few weeks past, don’t you think your son deserves a break? I believe he learned his lesson today. I think you just need to remind him of that and let it go, Mrs. Klatt.”
I knew he was probably right, but I wouldn’t admit that to him. He was so smug as he stood there mimicking me.
I bit down on my bottom lip to stop it from trembling. Then I drew a quick breath of air into my lungs and let it out slowly before I answered him. “Thank you for your help and the advice. I will see you again. Good day, Mr. Cooper.”
“Yes, you will. Good day, Elizabeth.”
I turned away from him but heard his laughter follow me as I hurried up the stairs and into the building. Why did he get under my skin so quickly? I knew why, but I couldn’t afford to think about it. I must avoid Mr. Cooper in the future, But I knew after seeing his kind eyes again it would be impossible. I leaned against the closed door and smiled. He was a handsome devil, and if I didn’t mind my P’s and q’s, I’d get myself in trouble, and that was something I just couldn’t afford.

Investigative journalist Shoshi Herscu’s extensive research reveals an insidious plot against humanity — a mass genocide to reduce the world’s population by 95% by 2030. Although it’s hard to believe, Herscu asserts the so-called “cabal” has been systemically forwarding this agenda for 50 years with U.N. and government cooperation. But, “Mass Awakening” (published by Balboa Press AU) is also a celebration of the unshackled human spirit’s quest to know “the truth” and rectify crimes against humanity. The book is available for purchase at: https://www.amazon.com/Mass-Awakening-Shoshi-Herscu/dp/1982208554.
Herscu explains that chemtrails — contrails left from airplanes which purportedly spread chemical or biological agents — above Israel years ago led to her learning about the hidden worldwide strategies furthering the cabal’s agenda like geoengineering, fluoridation of water supplies, GMOs, vaccinations, false flag terrorist attacks and economic warfare. Added to these revelations, the author discusses the suppression of new technologies from the secret space program that could clean the air and easily feed all humanity, such as free-energy devices. Herscu shows how disclosures by whistleblowers have revealed these breakthroughs and much more. So, according to the author, the global society is poised at “darkest hour before the dawn” and the birth of a golden new era.
“I feel that people feel very hopeless when they see their reality and the one they see on mainstream media. People aren’t aware that we’re in the midst of a positive shift worldwide,” Herscu says. “This book gives readers the tools to spot the signs of this positive shift from their sources, as well as discern information they have and give hope for an amazing future for everyone on this planet.”
According to Ada Tourtsakis of PrepareForChangeLeadership.org, “Mass Awakening” is Shoshi Herscu’s well researched and yet profoundly personal handling of intensely shocking material, rarely covered in print, is quite impressive for a first-time author. It is both a true inspiration and a much-needed breath of fresh air.”
