Back in 2016-17, Desideria and I had many discussions about the stability of our country's infrastructure (and all other Countries for that matter). We discuss this in our blog “The Dumbing Down Of Humanity” that we published in September 2017 (linked below), which describes how we could easily lose electricity supplies for month’s or even years, and why.
Earlier this month (December 2018), the President’s National Infrastructure Advisory Council (NIAC) published a report named “Surviving A Catastrophic Power Outage - How To Strengthen The Capabilities Of The Nation”.
This report is an official government report and confirms everything we had summarized in the Dumbing Down blog regarding the fragility of the power grid. Without electricity, lots of other essential services will quickly be impacted to the point of no delivery. Things such as fresh water, sewage, and fuel. These then have a further knock on effect where transport and logistics that provide food into the stores, stops. All will happen quickly, and chaos WILL ensue.
The geoengineering that is manipulating the weather and causing unnatural extreme storms across the Earth is now becoming the ‘norm’.Things like the California wildfires, and 22 Tornado's hitting central Illinois in 1 day in December, when the state has had an average of just 1 tornado per year in December for the past 65 years. These are man-made weather events, not an “act of god” or “revenge of mother nature”.
You are probably wondering ‘but….what can we do about it?’?!? The first thing we must do is not fall into the trap of thinking our Governments have this all figured out for our benefit. Yes they do have things figured out, but not for the benefit of you or I. Our Government has known for many years how bad the infrastructure is, and they have made their plans that look after themselves. They know that they do not have the infrastructure and that most people do not have the resources to cope with a catastrophic power outage that could easily be triggered by a host of other different things. Releasing this report now is part of keeping us in constant chaos and fear and even panic buying. We can not rely on first responders, FEMA or any of the Government & State agencies to come running to our aid. The reality is that we will have to rely on ourselves for long periods of time, and as such, we must all make plans for our families on how to survive in such an event because it will happen!
At the end of our ‘dumbing down’ blog we wrote this…
So what can we do? Well everyone has choices. For example, my family and I are planning on becoming completely self-sustainable. We are unlearning a lot of what we were taught through our lives, and learning old skills and knowledge we have shamefully forgotten or honestly, was never taught to begin with! We will be buying our own land, building an off-grid homestead, and growing our own food from heirloom seeds. Your choice might be different, but I implore you...don't simply do nothing (edited version).
Fear can be handled two ways:
Forget everything and run or Face everything and rise!
That was over a year ago and the message remains the same today but with a greater sense of urgency. Our own plans are moving forward and growing all the time. We will share some of the things we are planning on doing for our families safety and survival in the future.
Desideria continues to advance our XAnthethos (XAnthos Ethos), develop our websites, and make the videos shared on our YouTube Channels. An amazing amount of research and analysis goes into all she does and her creativity and talents have no end. She has also established our plans and priority task lists for what we work on.
These include but not limited to:
As you can see, a massive amount of work and planning has been completed, though there is much, much more still to develop. Not every family will want to, or have the time to make such detailed plans, which is one of the reasons why we have our websites and video channels. However, what we do encourage you to do, is at least make the first 3 plans in the list above, and start learning how to grow your own food. To help, here are some of the things we are considering for our own plans.
Firstly, it makes sense to use the content of the winter preparedness list, as part of your Emergency bug-out, and the content of both the Winter and Emergency lists within your long-term plan. So keep this in mind.
Winter Preparedness Plan For Extreme Weather / Power Outage
For a Winter Outage, you will need:
If you can afford it, you might wish to invest in a small gas generator (1Kw/2Kw) to provide power for lighting and some small electrical devices for entertainment.
Emergency Bug-out Plan
An Emergency ‘Bug-out’ is the need to leave your home quickly and travel to somewhere else in case of emergency or disaster. You may have very little notice of the need to bug-out, so you need to have the things you need to take with you in an accessible location in your home. Right now, everyone should be “Bugging In”, meaning staying indoors as much as possible to avoid illnesses and toxins from other humans and from breathing in the polluted air that is being sprayed with nanoparticles and heavy metals. But when do you know it’s time to “Bug Out”?
These are some of the many types of events that could cause you to leave your home quickly:
You will know yourself if you need to be leaving or staying where you are. Use your own instinct and trust your senses.
The first thing you will need (but will be the last thing you finalize) is a checklist. This should contain everything you plan to take with you and where you have it stored.
Next, you need to decide where your final destination is going to be. I say final as it may be more than a single day's journey away. You will need to know your mode of transport, then you can start planning your route. Most people are going to head for the interstate but that could be a mistake as it will quickly become congested. The most sensible way is to choose a path less traveled...rural roads...at least for the first day or 2. Make sure you plan stops into your route for fuel and rest/sleep. Also, travel in groups! Never travel alone as that will increase your chances of being robbed. Remember, those who haven't prepared are going to be desperate.
Finally, you need to decide what to take with you. The list below is provided only as a guide, but contains items that we will be including in our own plan.
* These items should be pre-packed into the backpack as a “grab bag”.
We have become reliant upon a system to provide our basic life needs, fresh water, ready access to food, and a means to keep ourselves warm during the winter. As quickly as they taught us to be dependent on these things, they can quickly take them away, leaving us to fend for ourselves! And then what do we do? People’s lives have become so full of weapons of mass distraction that they don’t have time to even consider growing a vegetable garden for example! And that is the trap we have fallen into. We have lost so many skills and sacred knowledge of how to look after our families at a basic level using what the Earth once provided for free. This is why we need a long-term plan to ensure we can survive in the future regardless of our Government and regardless of promises of technological advances or cure-all’s.
For the past 3 years, our family has been planning and learning the skills needed to become self-reliant, independent and truly free! We have been learning how to grow our food and what food to grow, how to can and preserve food, how to amend soil to make it viable, how to capture rainfall, and how to use herbs and plants medicinally. We have been planning where we want to live and buy land, what we want to use our land for, what buildings we need etc. We have been re-intenting our Kalindar and family holidays so they actually have meaning for our family, and so that they are not just generic occasions. Please see the Hearth & Home page on our website for more about this. All has been done with a solid end-goal in mind: decide what your families needs are for the future and design your plan to make it a reality.
Xanthosearthkeepers.com is our families Legacy and online record of our journey thus far. We hope to inspire other families to either join us or create something new, but don’t continue doing the same thing where history repeats itself over and over again. We are all being warned that History is no longer sustainable. In the near future we will be launching a members area of our website where we will discuss more about this soon, so stay tuned! Thanks for listening and stay safe out there!

Thank you so much to those of you who study and appreciate my work. This site gets almost 1,000 views per week and over 200 weekly unique visitors. From the very beginning, my intention was to be transparent in the development of XAnthos. The development of all my websites and of our lives in general are always changing, but the Heart of my message remains the same. I LOVE the Earth!!
I realize that what I'm attempting to do seems like a daunting task and makes me more enemies than friends, but i'm prepared to spend the rest of my life building XAnthos online and offline. Within the next 1-2 years, my family will be packing up and taking a tour through 20 States before arriving at our "final destination" where we will purchase 30+ acres to make XAnthos Land a reality. I will never return to Illinois again. Luckily, I have full custody of my children and negotiated court permission to live out of state and have absolute control over their education.
I will admit that right now, I'm dividing myself pretty thin with things, but everything is pulling together nicely and according to plan. There have been some bumps in the road, even as we speak, but we always find a way through it! Remember, I have LGMD 2J and a child with severe autism, so my challenges are daily!
I am so thankful that I have the support of my husband and yes, even my ex husband! They make it possible for me to focus on building a better future for our family and who knows, maybe the rest of the world too!?! I truly believe that what i'm doing is epic, revolutionary work. My many talents can't be expressed through the internet alone and I am so excited to see for the future! Rest assured, I will use any "profit" for the building of XAnthos Land and all it's projects and operations.
Alright, so like i said, all my sites are under continuous development. Thank you so much for your patience and interest in what we are doing. If you would like to help, please email me a email@example.com and let me know what you have to offer!

Hey, Gai's & Gaia's! It's been awhile since I've made a blog on the website, so I thought an update was in order. First of all, I will only be adding content to the S.E.C. Homeschooling Resource page as I have the time to transfer lesson plans. I have two children aged 12 and 9, so I obviously can't focus outside their age group right now. However, I will be piecing together the curriculum for other age groups over the next couple years as time permits. Thus far, I've been working on my websites for about 2 years and my videos for almost a year. We've made several adjustments to how we are organized.
Here is a list of our websites and youtube channels with links-

The XAnthos S.E.C. Homeschooling section is still under development and won't be useful for most parents for a few years to come unless you have a child that is currently a typically developing 8 year old (or in 3rd grade) AND a child with severe development delays (e.g. autism, etc.). S.E.C. stands for Sacred Earth Curriculum. We teach common core standards from an "eco-firebrand/feminist" perspective. In other words, we exclude patriarchal indoctrination and religion from our curriculum. We also exclude teachings on space exploration and globe earth theory. However, we do teach about astrology and astronomy but without teachings of ascension. You can read our very own pledge of allegiance on the homeschooling homepage. Good Luck!
This is #5 in a nine part series. See our YouTube channel for the other 8 videos! Enjoy!
