Cling-Ons and the Velcro People


by Zen Gardner

I love the expression, “What if they had a war and nobody came?” I feel the same about the matrix and the awakening.

What if the matrix had nowhere to manifest?

Our idea of self is so contrived. It’s broadcast at us from birth and reinforced by the world around us. It’s on this false, heavily reinforced self-screen that they are able to project their manipulated worldview. We cooperate, believe their paradigm to be the only one, and help pass it on to succeeding generations.

All the while asleep to the True reality within and without us.

Bugs on the Windshield

We use our egos as a sort of windshield. The trouble is, it keeps us from fully experiencing the true reality. Imagine there was no windshield….and you also were spirit and not material. Those bugs would pass right through and not get killed nor block your vision when they hit.

Which is exactly what happens. Your reality, what you see and perceive in life, becomes the crap stuck on your windshield with very little of the true picture getting through to you.

It’s the same with consciousness. When you wake up you realize you have nothing to defend, nothing to fear, nothing to strive for. You find out you’re already complete and connected to everything. No one can take your freedom because you are freedom. You realize this whole game of life that’s been meticulously laid out for us is built upon perceived wants based on a false sense of security, and a need to strive to get what you are told you need.

None of it has to be. It’s all based on ignorance and the whims of a predator race that feeds itself off the sleeping aphids.


Hooks and Hoops

That’s all Velcro is. Now if those little hooks were straightened out, nothing would stick to it, would it. Picture our manipulated idea of self is these bent attitudes and deformed ideas of reality. You can get “strung along” by just about anything. And when it sticks, your hooks feel useful and you start accumulating stuff. You grow and start to appear as though you are what is sticking to you.

Everyone else is mimicking the same thing, so you feel justified and even comforted. In fact you look for stuff to stick to you.

This is happening on several levels. You sit and watch TV and stringy Velcro balls are flying at you in all dimensions and you can’t even see most of them. You just come away with more crap clinging to your mind, heart and spirit and hardly notice.

The only reason this stuff sticks is because you’re “hooked”. Somehow, somewhere you and I were programmed with hooks that attach to stuff.


It’s not an overnight thing, but your wake can be. It takes time to realize all the ways we’ve been programmed and the vastness of how much disinformation we’ve been given. The beautiful thing is it’s actually a very simple process to get free. You just have to listen to your inner consciousness and dig into real and true information.

Then do what your awakened consciousness tells you to do.

That’s the “catch”. Unless you put what you’ve learned to be true to action you’ll be just another stillborn spiritual baby. Not what you want. Just get started one response at a time and it all just kicks in.

What makes it difficult is that waking up is cross-grain to society. The matrix is built to search out and smother dissent. It doesn’t like to be exposed, so it will activate all kinds of machinations to stop you; fear, guilt, humiliation, doubt, retribution, peer pressure, financial worries.

It’s nothing new. That’s how they run everybody’s lives. But when you start speaking up as well as changing your life according to what you’ve learned to be true, you’ll see fantastic confirmations, but you’ll also see some weird stuff come up. Just let it pass.

Don’t put the windshield back up..it’s all a lie to get you to do that.

The Spider and the Fly

The Spider is real. Nasty forces are behind this Matrix web. The beauty of it is once you “get it” the Matrix loses its power over you. True Universal Consciousness of which we are part is beyond these lower level matrices and paradigms.

However, those unaware are subject to many influences. I don’t fully understand the dynamics by any means, but those trapped in this web of deceit and control are not just subject to psychological, social, political and economic manipulation, but spirit manipulation as well. The worst of which is religion.

True spirituality is diametrically opposed to organized religion. Oddly enough, religions feed off this hunger for spirituality and then build these elaborate hierarchical structures to control and contain it.

Again, the matrix.

Warning – Cling-Ons Are Real

The warning though, is this. Beware the cling-ons…the real ones. Whatever you want to call these negative, parasitic inter-dimensionals. I just thought cling-ons is pretty appropriate because that’s exactly what they do.

You’ve seen dark and mean people who appear to be periodically powered by something outside themselves. This is real. And we’ll be seeing more and more of this in the days to come. It happens to people who invite them in, consciously or subconsciously. They either like the lusty lives they get into as a result, the psychopathic control over others, or their propensity for violence gives them a sense of power. It often manifests in outright Satanism or extreme religiosity. Sexual deviance and child abuse run rampant amongst these people.

And as you know the “heavies” like demon Bush above are all about secret societies and occult rituals. Nasty people.

Stay far away from anyone prone to these influences. Trust your instincts.

This is why we need to wake people up. The ignorant can not only be easily manipulated by the matrix, but they can get “jumped” by weird things going around. As I’ve been saying, these types of things are manifesting more and more as the Matrix falls apart and we’re bombarded with these vibrational changes.

This shouldn’t put fear into anyone, but we do need a healthy respect for the fast evolving battleground we are in and aware of its many influences.

Letting Go

That’s the key. Detaching from everything. We are the only ones who let anything have power over us. It happens when we’re ignorant of the Truth and base our thoughts or actions on a lie.

It happens when we’re tense, overly left brained about something, or in a hurry.

It happens when we try to defend ourselves and any sense of “who we are”. It happens when belief replaces knowledge and experience. It happens when we don’t respond to what Love tells us to do.

It happens when we’re attached to the outcome. This Velcro is a tough one, keeps growing back and catches so many. When we get set in our minds that something needs to be a certain way, or we need to be in a certain place, or at a certain time when it’s actually arbitrary, or think our goals of any sort are “set in stone”, we’re setting ourselves up for trouble.

What if the Universe opens another door? We’re not free to enter it. Our mind’s made up. In fact, in that state of mind we can’t even see the new door that opened, for any one of the reasons listed above.

In those states we’re “unconscious”.

Synchronicity for Fun and Prophet

My (current) definition of personal freedom is when we’re free to follow life’s signs and live in synchronicity. This for me is a daily adventure and constant check for me whether I’m in the moment now, or somewhere else.

Great thing is, following synchronicity is fun! Wrong turns become right turns. Delays become adventures. Red lights become free time…free to enjoy the scenery and look for something you might need to see.

Carl Jung defined synchronicity as the”acausal connecting principle” that links mind and matter. It manifests as uncanny yet meaningful coincidences and serendipities. Since we’re all interconnected in a flowing field of information it makes perfect sense we should be able to see this inter-connectivity at work, and the more conscious we become and learn to fully live in the moment, the more we’ll see.

So keep an eye out for synchronicity—they’re extremely powerful experiences and really enhance your life.

This is a great time be alive..but not a good time to be asleep.

So keep the wake up rolling–if folks don’t listen now, they’ll remember what you said real soon!

Love, Zen

  1. Ah, Zen, You are a master at delivering what needs to be said. How true every word is. [smile] Thank You both for Your cleanly honed words and Your images, some showing the evil to avoid and some pointing the way.

    • Tx Ama…soft soul that you are. I’m nothing special but just have to express all this wonder…ha! Just wanna help, but peeps gotta find their own way. Love you, Zen

  2. Beautiful Zen. Like incisive poetry.

    The part about detachment, key, ne? Ideas, impressions, moulds, education, rules….and then closer, family, values, relationships, and then deeper, “injuries”, slights, not-so-slights, trauma…. then fear… all a process of detachment and to my mind’s eye the switch-back points on the de-scent.

    De-scent… 😉

    I wrote about detachment, if you don’t mind, feel free to lop off and post the rest of the comment…edit, whatever… all good…


    Feel like I see myself here… nice…


  3. Brilliant! Thank you!

    Today I met a friend who was going for a walk with her dog in the meadows. On her way she found nearly a dozen of four-leaf clovers.
    She told me that happend already the other day. She was glad but also confused.

    I was happy for her and told her to watch out for other oddities in her life and that she should not worry.

    That feels so great! Another one getting connected to synchronicity. 😀
    Carry on.


  4. Hey Zen
    I just saw an amazing article on thehealersjournal.com
    It’s about Atlantis and our ancient history.
    Check it out if you want.

  5. I suppose all of us here continually see 11/11 333 22/22 etc on the clock when one has the urge to look? I was pondering this one day ( goodness me /shades of Russell Brand ) and said to myself am I off with the fairies believing all the weird things I believe in, or is there something in this. I glanced down at the digital clock on the table under the patio and it read thus~ the date was 3/3 the temperature was 33deg and the time was 3.33 in the afternoon. Wow /I always believed anyway.Do any of you when on the computer or reading a paper or book etc and the TV happens to be on ( yes , I have one tut tut ) just as you read a word it is spoken on TV. this happens so many times and makes me laugh to myself at the wonder of it all . Or maybe a money show is on and the contestant has to guess the amount in the box I wander into the living room and say No! it has eg $250 not $3000. The box is opened and it is $250. The only thing being when I try to guess deliberately nothing. Anyway thanks for reading my rant . Take care everyone. Fred

    • Enjoy Fred! Look for other synchronicities when these hit…or just know you’re on track….or just groove on ’em. We get ’em so often it’s nuts…and just love it! Main thing is to live your life in the same manner..and do for others what you can while you can, according those same types of leadings. Hope that helps. Love, Z

  6. Beautiful! And so true….
    The synchronicities are amazing. Once I started to wake up, they just kept coming at me, and it hasn’t stopped. In fact, as part of the waking up process, I felt that the information I needed “found me”, and I’ve heard others describe the same thing.

    It is a great reminder that things are as they should be, and going according to Divine plan.

    • Ahhh… The perfect example above – I just told a friend that I want to research three things I’d like to know more about. One of those things is Atlantis. And from Jeff, in the comment above mine, he has a link to info.

      Thanks Jeff!

      • Your welcome Clarity.
        That article resonated with me. It seemed to make sense on many different levels. Glad to add to the discussion.

      • Hi Clarity, I just wanted to tell you of a book i found. It’s titled “The Enlightened Ones Beyond the Icebergs” by Rueben Sam Shodall. Descendants of Atlantis speak to Our Age. Hope you can get some goodies from it! It’s trippy stuff for sure!

    • Rt on. But when we willingly tune into it and can consciously affect it there’s a certain “responsibility”…ability to respond. No sitting still, an active roll in the awakening. No matter what it takes or costs, do it. – Z

    • Hi Martin!

      We have a saying: (I hope this translation is adequate.)
      “You do not see the wood because of all the trees.”

      Maybe you can tell someone of your experiences (in the last months) who is already awake. He/she can connect some dots for you. [Tx Zen! Very nice of you to make such an offering!]

      I’d had this in the beginning, too. I’d not paid attention to certain situations. Weeks or even months later, when you’ll get more and more puzzle pieces, there’ll be a big “Aaaaaah, I see!”. 😉

      Even when you’re awake there may be things that are only revealed by time.
      Don’t try to hard. Just let it happen.

      And I’ll bet you are on your way. After all, you found Zen’s website. :)


    • I forgot: Just get connected! ;D

      “Open these soul cages, fill my blank pages

      So Love becomes my saviour
      It’s creeping underneath my skin
      Gets me connected

      Like notes can turn to music
      We spin a web that makes us more
      More than we are
      Just let it happen

      I try to reach my hand out
      And wonder what may come to me
      I let it happen

      Like raindrops in a river
      We can be part of bigger things
      And if we dare
      We get connected”
      – Rage – Connected


    • KT—sad but true. Not all their fault. Played for dumb sheep….TV, drugged water, food and air. Dumbed down education. It’s a total conspiracy to crush and kill. No question. I feel so sorry for the unwitting masses. Just wish the awake would scream a hell of a lot louder than they are! Just spent half an hour with a gas station owner talking this stuff…and he’s a changed man. Wish others would do more, that’s all. Don’t get it. Where’s people’s compassion?
      Love you, keep on…Zen

      • Zen, That reminds me of the Parable of the Sower in Matthew : Chapter 13. We need to look to that for inspiration. It can be disheartening because often you’ll never know if the seed you tried to plant was scorched by the Sun, eaten by birds, or actually fell onto fertile soil. But every now and then (if you’re lucky) someone will thank you and say something like: “I feel like talking to you today has changed my life”, and that bit of confirmation is enough to keep you trying.

  7. Shalum

    Prophecy is the driving force of synchronicity. Who your Prophet is, is immaterial. You can be your own Prophet if you want. Some follow no Prophet and take it as it comes.

    Synchronicity indicates that you are on the Path of Prophecy..

    Synchronicity is Neutral. It occurs with the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

    Periods of non-synchronicity are periods of straying from the Path.

    The abundance of synchronicities in one’s life reflects atunement to the Path. Many have few synchronetic events per unit time (<se/t).

    Increase Synchronicities to Enjoy Life !

    ?? HOW ??

    • Yahds…tried to describe. It’s looking! We have to get our eyes and hearts off other stuff to truly look. Sometimes that’s a major life change. Sometimes it’s just a sincere searcher “tuning in”. No secret. It just awaits your discovery. —Love you, Zen

  8. The ego is also a good defense mechanism . ” Abandon your ego ” is precisely the kind of thing that ” THEY ” would tell us to do . That would make it oh so much easier for ” THEM ” to control ” US ” . By all means ” LET GO ” , it will help you to become the sheep/robot that ” THEY ” want you to become .

  9. Thank you, Zen. Your wisdom indeed resonates in me!! When we are really “awake”, the truth is intuitive and requires no further investigation. I love your articles! :-)

  10. Yay, Zen. Synchronicities! They do abound. My recovery from mercury poisoning continues and I have been making great progress, but today has turned out to be a bad day. I must admit, I get very scared when I have days such as this, because the memories of being so sick day after day after day are too great. With the fatigue, confusion and ill-feeling having overwhelmed me today, I decided to lie down, chill and find inspiration and catch up on real news stories. I have certain go-to websites but none would open. Finally, zengardner opened and I was drawn to this story even though I had just read it when you first posted it, Zen.

    Once I read, “Beware the cling-ons…the real ones.” I burst into tears. That’s it! There is some inter-dimensional little nasty nipping at my heels. Or my heals. Everything I’m doing to heal is right – I know it – so I’m surprised when I have days like this. But now I know why. It’s the nasty little “heal” nippers and they want me to be scared and sad and down and sick. I’m onto them.

    Thanks Zen, for drawing me to this article — again.
    Continuing to chill
    Much love

    • Hi Sand!

      I also have days like this. It is as if dark entities try to push me off the track back into the dark abyss. Fear, sorrow, desperation, hate etc. are their tools.

      But the further you are on your way the less they can reach you.

      You’re doing right by shifting one gear down. The better you can handle the crosswind.
      I’m sure you’ll make it. :)

      Sending you healing Light and Love!

      • Fabian,

        Thank you for your kind words! I’m sorry you have “days like this.” They certainly are not fun. But, I’m so thankful for people like you who get it. it’s really cool what working together can accomplish.

        It makes me heart sing AND do a little jig.
        Much love right back to you.

      • Greetings Sand!

        Hope there’s no misunderstanding. I’d no poisoning. I meant those days when one’s “down”.

        Yes, “fun” is not quite the right word. But my experience is: You can learn a lot through this. It’s a way to process and dissolve negative energies. Afterwards you are stronger and wiser and some steps closer to Infinite Love.
        No need to feel sorry. (Nevertheless: Thank you for your loving thoughts! 😀 )

        On those days it’s best for me to have a calm day in nature.
        Ever tried to purr like a cat while stroking one? No, really! Try it! It feels sooooo great!

        I’m thankful for my “Dark Years”. Without them I would not be awake. 😉

        It feels great when I meet people in real life or in internet who are also following the path of Love. (Yeah, I’m not alone. 😀 ) But it feels much better when I can help people. Even if it’s only by sending loving thoughts to them.

        My best wishes!

  11. This resonates very powerfully with me, especially the mention of synchronicity. My life is punctuated daily with synchronous events and observations and I have for years used this pattern to judge my path through life. The more I see and experience of a synchronous nature the more in tune with my destiny I feel.

    It is important also to take responsibility for your own life. By this I mean NOT blaming others for your misfortune when it occurs, even if others have deliberately done somethng against you, because so long as you blame others, you are surrendering control of your life to others. I have in the distant past spent sleepless nights and restless, miserable days fretting about somebody who has wronged me, often in very serious ways. Plotting or imagining acts of revenge hurling curses their way and so it goes. I’ve lost my home, business and even family to such things and yet the real loss was of my sense of control over my own life. Always when I finally came to realise that nobody was to blame but myself, then I found things could quickly be brought back into a positive and synchronous orbit; because even in the most extreme cases it was I who made decisions which led to myself being left vulnerable to such attacks. It may seem counterintuitve to take responsibility for something someone else “did to you” but it is in fact incredibly empowering and essential for the healing/recovery to begin. After the last time, there was a period of loss for sure but I never let go responsibility for my life and fairly rapidly things have righted themselves to the point where I never felt so alive and successful as I do now.

    Also don’t reject religion out of hand. Synchronicity led me to religion again after rejecting it many years ago. I am recently converted to Islam and along with this has come a powerful series of faith confirming events. I testify that the prayers from a righteous man are truly heard and answered and synchronicity follows me everywhere. I have managed to shed several very serious attempts against my life and business and all that was lost in the past has been returned to me in abundance. Those who sought to do me harm have suffered horribly in their turn without me even feeling much ill will towards them, let alone striking back out of any misplaced sense of vengeance. Far from doing me harm, attempts against me have instead served positive outcomes for me of late.

    With eyes wide open I am no longer shackled by delusions or false paradigms and my sense of personal well being and power is peerless and recognised by all around me, both long term relationships and casual encounters. I have to guard against pride and I try to maintain humility, I think this is critically important. By avoiding ego gluttony I can continue to channel the positive benefits. as one of my favorite prayers of the last prophet goes, “Allah make me great in the eyes of others but small in my own eyes.” I can take no credit for anything since all things come from Allah alone.

    Material things are not the most important to me and I share my abundance with those around me who seem deserving, yet my increase just keeps rising. Happily married now to a beautiful and loving young woman who is as devoted to me as only a Muslimah can be, my business is thriving and expanding and our lives are growing to encompass all those around us with positive energy.

    • AH

      You see what I mean when I write

      ” Prophecy is the driving force of synchronicity.”

      You have chose a Great Prophet

      Mohamed (Please pardon the spelling of his name (pptsohn)

      Strong in the face of opposition, winning, ascending !

      Can we do less ?


      MORE !

      Stay on the Path

  12. There are also certain catalysts which can facilitate the awakening. You must be ensouled or they won’t help, though. Therefore when you, an ensouled one, see foolish entities mimick alchemy and get meaningless results, be discriminating. Alchemy can be facilitated by key methodolgies. But in the end the facilitations must be abandoned and the soul must burst forth without need of any kind of help and without facing any resistance.

    Still, I wish to emphasize that in my alchemy certain catalysts helped, and by realizing that they simply helped me “be myself” more truly they showed me a target to approach in my “uncatalyzed” states. There’s a whole science and art to the catalyzing processes but the important thing is that one can develop insights which transcend them and ride well even without training wheels. Ah, but the training wheels can help….
