I am new, still have to read the book, and this forum too, but first i have one question.
I searched for, but did not find much on this topic.
What do you think about the possibility that the global elite (illuminati) is "controlled" by or in alliance with "demons"?
Could it be, that angels protect us steadily against "demons"?
I don't use most of those terms in the above, and i don't know about specific people and their influences, but i figure there probably is a mix of influence with some people with a lot of material influence, but whether or not they listen more to the more love attuned or selfish "voices" depends. I imagine some are more influenced by the latter, and some more by the former speaking on average.
While i'm no fan of Icke and those like him, much to my surprise, i've been informed by guidance that there is indeed a specific E.T. group which does try to influence humanity to the negative or "higher entropy", and they are good at what they do.
Monroe was told by his "I/There" that there are misleading E.T. forces, and Rosiland McKnight's guidance also outlined quite a bit of info about a particular E.T. group, and they even pointed out that sometime around the 2500 year mark that it was probable that humanit would become involved in an out and out war with this unfriendly E.T. group but would have some help from the more low entropy type E.T.'s.
Also, there are more credible and serious researchers in the E.T. area, like the late Dr. John Mack who DO speak of a reptilian E.T. group with a negative agenda and intention towards humanity. Icke and Dr. Mack are not much alike, except in the most general that both mention the above in a very general sense. The specifics are very different though.
My sense is that they are held in check by forces more powerful and aware than they are, until we are collectively mature enough to handle and deal with what we have attracted by our own collective negativity. But while they are not allowed to physically attack for now, they are allowed to try to influence humans. Or in other words, in a sense they are now in more covert kind of war with us. My wife had two separate dreams which related to a future life of hers, during a war with a particular E.T. group, and it all sounded similar to what McKnight's guidance had generally outlined.
Make a practice of attuning to pure, unconditional love consciousness and they cannot influence you at all. As regards your original question, yes, my intuition is that they do sometimes influence certain people with a lot of material influence and power.
In any case, the good news is that there are many more constructive sources out there trying to help us than there are hindering or misleading ones. The former also tend to be more powerful because they are more aware and there is more of them, and this group comprises of various "categories" from former inphysical humans, E.T.'s, true "Angels", in physical humans, etc.
