Pluto in Astrology

Pluto is extremely important in the lives of those of us who are undergoing the process of fusion of the Soul and the personality.

Pluto is the agent of 'death', whether this is the death of desire, the death of our attachment to form, or the total death and surrender of the lower self as it merges and gives its life to the Soul. This is the death of liberation; the death of the resurrection.

Pluto serves as the vehicle for the First Ray energy of destruction. It represents that process which breaks down the sense of selfishness and separateness of the lesser ego/personality, so that our little, personal will becomes the Will-to-Good of the realised Soul self. It is a purifying energy which, in its external mode of expression leads to the disintegration of form so that the Spirit of man may triumph.

This Human spirit is the indwelling Universal Consciousness, the Loving Presence of the Soul. This is why, from the esoteric level, Pluto is the ruler of Pisces, sign of the World Saviour. Yet it has to be clearly understood that the passion of the death and resurrection of the Anointed One is the same Path and Passion for each of us. The form of this Way in the Aquarian Era is outlined in the Laws and Principles of the New Age. Yet the energetics - the transcendental dynamics of the Path - remain constant throughout the Ages.

The Earth, the material realm, and the physical body represent the polarity to Pluto. It is in the physical world that our attachment to our desires is the greatest, and our illusions the strongest. Pluto and the other First Ray planet, Vulcan, teach the lessons that relate to the process of detachment from matter. Pluto may bring change {temporary} darkness, and death, but it can never destroy consciousness. On the contrary, the work of the First Ray and its planets frees the individual to become more closely in touch with the consciousness aspect of Life.

The breaking down and detachment from forms, especially on the emotional level, is most painful. Indeed this is the sacrifice the personality renders out of Love to the Soul. It is this undertaking, which becomes increasingly more conscious as spiritual evolution unfolds, that leads the individual from the experiences in Scorpio to the emergence of the indwelling Christ in Pisces. This relationship and transference of energy also helps us to understand how Pluto is the co-ruler of Scorpio from the level of personality and the ruler of Pisces from the level of the Soul.

Birth and rebirth are painful processes. The physical and emotional pain a woman endures in the process of giving birth to an infant is highly symbolic of the esoteric process of generation. The mother [form} is pulled again and broken as the child moves out of her womb and onto the Earth. What was once existing within one and thus creating a whole has now become two, and all duality is painful in nature. The birthing of the individual out of the womb of his previous forms of containment (no matter how secure and comfortable) is absolutely essential for evolutionary development.

The undying Spirit of Life is always creating new Ideas, and Humanity consists of the Sons and Daughters of Mind. The above says something to us of the relationship of Neptune as the esoteric ruler of Cancer and the exoteric ruler of Pisces. The relationship of these two water signs (and hence, an extension of meaning to Pluto and Scorpio) might well be worth contemplating at this point.

Pluto is the instrument for the development of the Spiritual Will. This comes about through the trials and tests on the Path of Discipleship. For this reason, Pluto is the exoteric co-ruler of Scorpio, as it serves to facilitate the many deaths and transformations associated with this sign and its Path. The combination of the First Ray (Pluto) and the Sixth (Mars) leads to the battlegrounds which are so rightly associated with Scorpio.

The Runes

A Word on 'The Anunnaki'

A complex mining operation was begun in southeast Africa which later required human hybrid slaves. Because their planet goes far out into space, these beings are in darkness and misery much of the time; when they approach the sun again they delight in visiting our planet Earth with the feminine essence of the Goddess so vibrant and living upon her.


There is evidence of these visits throughout ancient history, particularly in the Sumerian culture.When the Anunnaki and their God, Anu, visit our planet they interfere with its natural rhythms and nature. Since they are of a different origin, which is more advanced and they live for thousands of our years; they have manipulated us by genetic experiments and consider us like guinea pigs, or as slaves for their gold mines.

It is said thousands of our years past, they took the gentle and docile Hominid species we know as Homo Erectus and bred a human hybrid from their own DNA. This explains the famous "missing link."

Humanity was formed from Anunnaki DNA and Homo Erectus DNA with many horrific mistakes in between

This hybrid human did not have the capacity to breed, being a slave needed only for mining. Later one of the Anunnaki, Enki, loved man and gave man the ability to reproduce. This was the fall from the Garden of Edin apparently. We lost the protection of the Anunnaki once we were able to reproduce our own kind, and man as a species has been evolving himself since with periodic visits by the Anunnaki who have given ample evidence of a love/hate relationship to man.

For example, in a fit of anger, Anu created the great flood to destroy man completely on the earth, but Noah again with Enki's help, survived in the ark along with the animals. The Anu gods also created a nuclear war in Ur because of their volatile anger and violence. Such has been our history with this temperamental, angry, mean and jealous progenitor, seeming a lot like the Greek Zeus.

How do the Anunnaki influence our culture and our earth history so much?

In the ancient past when man was "homo erectus" he was able to see through the third eye, the pineal gland much as we see today with our eyes. With that innate ability it was no problem seeing the 4th dimensional frequency... the Astral realm where the Anunnaki exist. However, the Anunnaki have considered man their experiment and toy, so there has been much manipulation of our DNA and in many reports, it becomes clear that we were endowed with 12 strand DNA instead of the two we now have.

Our brain is merely functioning at 10% if that of its true capacity. In reducing our capacities for accessing the upper dimensions, in shutting down the third eye, they tried to ensure their secrecy and hidden control and that human beings would remain their slaves/robots, acting out the Anunnaki scenarios of power, war, control, domination, rape and eco-destruction of the Earth.

The tales of the Greek Gods are the stories of ego-maniacs and psychotic episodes typical of the Anunnaki behaviour.Much of this control has been conducted through male secret societies and cabals. Our history bears witness that those who demonstrated the psychic skills to see in the Astral (and expose the deceptive influences of the Aliens), such as crones and witches, were crucified and outlawed. The christian martyrs who lived in the heart and followed the calling of their higher self, were tortured into silence. All this sordid history is coming now to end.Much of our obsession with the "father" god and male domination of the planet has come from the influence of the Anunnaki. These beings do not have goddesses as are found on Earth.

Laughing Meditation

Many people might be surprised to think of laughter as a form of meditation. Yet not only is laughing meditation one of the simplest forms of meditation, but also it is a very powerful one. The physical act of laughing is one of the few actions involving the body, emotions, and the soul. When we laugh, we give ourselves over to the immediacy of the present moment. We also are able to momentarily transcend minor physical and mental stresses.
Practiced in the morning, laughing meditation can lend a joyful quality to the entire day. Practiced in the evening, laughing meditation is a potent relaxant that has been known to inspire pleasant dreams. Laughter also can help open our eyes to previously unnoticed absurdities that can make life seem less serious. There are three stages to mindful laughter. Each stage can last anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes. The first stage involves stretching your body like a cat and breathing deeply. Your stretch should start at the hands and feet before you move through the rest of your body. Stretch out the muscles in your face by yawning and making silly faces. The second stage of the meditation is pure laughter. Imagine a humorous situation, remember funny jokes, or think about how odd it is to be laughing by yourself. When the giggles start to rise, let them. Let the laughter ripple through your belly and down into the soles of your feet. Let the laughter lead to physical movement. Roll on the floor, if you have to, and keep on laughing until you stop. The final stage of the meditation is one of silence. Sit with your eyes closed and focus on your breath. Laughter brings with it a host of positive effects that operate on both the physical and mental levels. It is also fun, expressive, and a way to release tension. Learn to laugh in the present moment, and you'll find that joy is always there.

Do these mysterious stones mark the site of the Garden of Eden?

'Gobekli Tepe is the most important archaeological site in the world.' Some go even further and say the site and its implications are incredible. As Reading University professor Steve Mithen says: 'Gobekli Tepe is too extraordinary for my mind to understand.'

So what is it that has energised and astounded the sober world of academia?

The site of Gobekli Tepe is simple enough to describe. The oblong stones, unearthed by the shepherd, turned out to be the flat tops of awesome, T-shaped megaliths. Imagine carved and slender versions of the stones of Avebury or Stonehenge. Most of these standing stones are inscribed with bizarre and delicate images - mainly of boars and ducks, of hunting and game. Sinuous serpents are another common motif. Some of the megaliths show crayfish or lions. The stones seem to represent human forms - some have stylised 'arms', which angle down the sides. Functionally, the site appears to be a temple, or ritual site, like the stone circles of Western Europe.

To date, 45 of these stones have been dug out - they are arranged in circles from five to ten yards across - but there are indications that much more is to come. Geomagnetic surveys imply that there are hundreds more standing stones, just waiting to be excavated.

So far, so remarkable. If Gobekli Tepe was simply this, it would already be a dazzling site - a Turkish Stonehenge. But several unique factors lift Gobekli Tepe into the archaeological stratosphere - and the realms of the fantastical. The first is its staggering age. Carbon-dating shows that the complex is at least 12,000 years old, maybe even 13,000 years old.

That means it was built around 10,000BC. By comparison, Stonehenge was built in 3,000 BC and the pyramids of Giza in 2,500 BC. Gobekli is thus the oldest such site in the world, by a mind-numbing margin. It is so old that it predates settled human life.

It is pre-pottery, pre-writing, pre-everything. Gobekli hails from a part of human history that is unimaginably distant, right back in our hunter-gatherer past.

How did cavemen build something so ambitious? Schmidt speculates that bands of hunters would have gathered sporadically at the site, through the decades of construction, living in animal-skin tents, slaughtering local game for food. The many flint arrowheads found around Gobekli support this thesis; they also support the dating of the site. This revelation, that Stone Age hunter-gatherers could have built something like Gobekli, is worldchanging, for it shows that the old hunter-gatherer life, in this region of Turkey, was far more advanced than we ever conceived - almost unbelievably sophisticated.

In the Book of Genesis, it is indicated that Eden is west of Assyria. Sure enough, this is where Gobekli is sited. Likewise, biblical Eden is by four rivers, including the Tigris and Euphrates. And Gobekli lies between both of these. In ancient Assyrian texts, there is mention of a 'Beth Eden' - a house of Eden. This minor kingdom was 50 miles from Gobekli Tepe.

Another book in the Old Testament talks of 'the children of Eden which were in Thelasar', a town in northern Syria, near Gobekli. The very word 'Eden' comes from the Sumerian for 'plain'; Gobekli lies on the plains of Harran. Thus, when you put it all together, the evidence is persuasive. Gobekli Tepe is, indeed, a 'temple in Eden', built by our leisured and fortunate ancestors - people who had time to cultivate art, architecture and complex ritual, before the traumas of agriculture ruined their lifestyle, and devastated their paradise.

It's a stunning and seductive idea. Yet it has a sinister epilogue. Because the loss of paradise seems to have had a strange and darkening effect on the human mind. (Source: Daily Mail)

The Old Nordic Seidr in Modern Shamanism

The old written sources about Seidr are found in the Edda and the sagas, and often it is not at all clear if they describe myth or this reality or both. Some key points in the Seidr practise are never mentioned, and the descriptions are often heavily biased. Here is a brief introduction to the bare bones of Seidr, just enough for a basic understanding.

In its blooming days, a thousand years ago and more, the Northern shamanic tradition of Seidr was practised mostly by women, called volvas, Seidr-wives, sp -wives, or wise women. The volva is often described as being past her fertile years, and unlike other women she has no clan- or lineage-name. The Seidr has its roots in the fertility cult around the goddess Freya, and the ceremonial form of a Seidr seance is quite unique. The volva does her shamanic work sitting with her staff on a highseat, or platform, a Seidrhiallr. The staff is important, but it is never said what for. The volva is surrounded by a circle of people, who sing the Seidr songs, the spirit-calling songs, the magic chants, but no chants are written down. It is this ecstatic song which changes her state of consciousness, carries her into trance on a journey. When the song ends, and the volva is still suspended between the worlds, she is in a state to prophesy, to divine, to answer questions about future and fate, receiving her knowledge from the spirit realm. Seidr has been used mainly for divination, but in some accounts the volva's close link to Freya and the powers of fertility shines clearly through: In the story of Thorbi"rg Lillvolva, the volva is called because of the famine and the barrenness of the land. In Landn mab¢k another volva gets named "Filler of the Sound" because she made the herring return to a fjord they had disappeared from. The Seidr is thus used to bring plenty, to restore balance between people and nature. In some accounts Seidr is used for harmful magic, to send somebody illness or misfortune. Here we must remember that the literature is very biased, written by christian sholars often opposed to this heathen practise. But of course the Seidr practitioners have been faced with the same fundamental ethical choice between using or abusing power as shamans are everywhere. What we can read between the lines is: If one can send harm, one can also send healing. In short, Seidr can be used to gather and send power.

The Seidr song as portrayed in the literature is unmistakably shamanic and has shown me a lot about magic singing in general. Song and chanting has been a dimension in shamanic practise always and everywhere, and song shows up all by itself for anyone who starts on the path of shamanism. It is said that the Seidr song was ecstatic song. Ecstasy means a state where you have let go so much of ego, control, and convention that the power of the universe flushes through you unhindered. And that is the first trait of shamanic singing: that you sing from a source that is bigger than yourself, and let power flow through you as song. In other words, the song is sung in an altered state of awareness, or in trance. And when we start to sing like that, we can experience a marvellous shift in our voice, our breathing and endurance, the power and effect of our utterance. The song sings us. There is a second trait of the ecstatic song that makes it shamanic: the song has a definite purpose. We sing open the doors to the otherworld. We sing out to our spirit helpers, so they may know we're calling them. We sing to a tree to honour its beautiful power. We sing the invisible threads between us and our spirit helpers stronger. We sing a mound open, so we can talk with our ancestors. We sing pains and spirits of illness away. We sing thanks to the plants we harvest. This gets us to the third trait. Shamanic songs or chants are not composed or constructed. They are found, heard, gotten, when we are in-spired. They arrive, arise, and unfold. [More...]

A Word on "Heimdall"

Heimdall is the watchmen of the gods at Bifrost, the bridge that links Asgard and Midgard. He will sound the Gjallarhorn to call the gods to Ragnarok when the Frost Giants attack. To fulfil this task he is ever vigilant needing ' less sleep than a bird', with keen senses he 'can see a hundred leagues by day or night' and 'hear grass growing and the wool growing on the backs of sheep and anything louder than that'.

Heimdall has been shown as having wisdom, being described as 'kind of counsel' in poetry and has provided sage advice to the other gods in the Lay of Thrym, regarding the recovery of Thor's hammer Mjollnir from the Frost Giants. Here too he is credited with the ability to read the future.

Heimdall is the son of Odin, Ruler of the Gods of Asgard, and Alti, daughter of the ancient sea-god, Aegir. Aegir was of a generation of gods older than the Aesir and the Vanir. While Odin was visiting him, he encountered the daughters of Aegir asleep on the beach at Hlesey and stayed the night with them. Falling in love with each of them, he married each of them, and from among them, two children were born, Heimdall and Sif. The nine wave maidens were reported as nurturing Heimdall and Sif on the strength of the earth, the moisture of the sea and the heat of the sun. As an added attribute to this mystical up-bringing, Heimdall grew to be tall and handsome with a dazzling smile of sunshine and inherited incredible senses above that of any other Asgardian. Both Heimdall and Sif thrived so well on this diet that they headed to Asgard to be counted among the gods. The thunder-god, Thor, accepted Sif as his bride, and Heimdall was entrusted with his incredible senses to standing sentry at Bifrost, the rainbow bridge connecting Asgard to Earth.

Since accepting the noble task of guarding and protecting Asgard, Heimdall has never left his post at Bifrost. He also proved to be the cleverest of the gods. He came up with the means for Thor to retrieve his stolen hammer from the giant Thrym who had taken it and even pursued Loki, matching him for each animal form he became while trying to escape, after the theft of Freia's necklace. However, prophecies eventually became known connecting Ragnarok, The Twilight of the Gods, to the death of the god Balder, the most beloved among the gods of Asgard. Loki masterminded these prophecies to come to pass and Balder died as a result. Heimdall faced off against Loki at Ragnarok where they slew each other in combat.

Heimdall as well as the Asgardian gods were restored to life sometime later in what is now believed to be repeating cycles of Ragnarok for the Asgardians. In this new incarnation, Heimdall seems to have no memories of Odin as his father except for the knowledge of Sif as his sister. Odin sent him to earth to investigate if the children of Ask and Embla still survived. Ask and Embla were two mortals who survived the Asgardians' war with the Giants of Jotunheim millennia before. On Earth, Heimdall disguised himself as a mortal man and encountered separately three sets of couples; each of whom treated him with extreme hospitality and courtesy. Each couple had a child nine months after Heimdall's stay who grew up to exhibit the greatest qualities of their families. To one of these children, Heimdall showed the secrets of the runes and wisdom over good and evil so that mortals could become aware of their own destinies.

Returning to his duties at Bifrost, Heimdall has exhibited extreme diligence in his responsibilities to Asgard even to proving to be almost a match against Thor at times although he has also proved extremely loyal in his responsibilities to Odin, Thor and even Frigga. After the Third Host of the Celestial, Heimdall participated with the goddesses of earth to seek out twelve individuals as close to genetic potential to serve as example of human potential. These individuals became known as the Young Gods. Heimdall also showed great compassion toward Amora the Enchantress after the death of her lover, Skurge the Executioner, and she fell in love with him in return. Heimdall, however, was slain during war against the Egyptian god Seth invading Asgard and Amora showed great remorse upon his death. Heimdall was eventually restored to life by Odin but the ordeal with Seth had left him greatly weakened. He chose Heimdall to behold the Odin-Force in his absence as he withdrew to his needed Odin-sleep. One of Heimdall's first tasks was to restore the shattered Rainbow Bridge Bifrost broken by Seth.

Today's Comment

If in doubt, say nowt ...

Well, I saw a UFO today. It was hovering on the horizon ... I could see it out of the window of the Quantas plane I was aboard earlier tonight. None of the other passengers seemed to be aware there was anything out there ... so I elected not to say a word to anyone.

The UFO was clearly a 'craft' of some type. It was not a cloud or a weather balloon. It just hung there below a red horizon ... a talisman of mystery and enchantment, for me anyway.

I was glad to see it. But I did not break out in raptures or in a loud declaration to the other passengers.. I merely observed it as if it was as common place as the cloud formations we were passing through. It generated little or no excitement in me ... I've seen UFO's before and I know they are there.

UFO's are now a fact of life. However, it is hard to determine whether it was an 'alien agency' who flew it ... or if it was some back-engineered craft that had human pilots, which had taken off from a secret air base in Australia somewhere.

I accept totally that there are UFO's ... I have all my life. Seeing one does not generate massive excitement with me ... I have been seeing them all my life and I don't know what the fuss is about.

I accept completely the reality there is alien life out there in the galaxy. I have done remote viewings into the earth's atmosphere and found myself in UFO cockpits. More often than not there are human pilots ... but sometimes I link to something which is anything but earthbound.

I am not gullible or deluded. I know the truth when I see it ... and with all the craft which is up there in space circling the earth ... the odds are not that high to see one when flying at 30,000+ feet ....

UFO caught by Google Earth?

Have a good look at the image circled in red ... with an open mind ... what exactly is it? It is up to you to decide if it is a UFO or not.

It is certainly an interesting image captured by Google Maps ...

A circular disk like object clearly seen above a coastline in a cloudless sky ...

But is it an Unidentified Flying Object in the vein which is associated with these days ... an alien spacecraft? Or has it some rational explanation ... or has secret agencies devised disc like craft now ... and this is one of these secret craft caught on film?

Interesting eh ... thought provoking ... be interesting to learn what it is ....

No doubt some cynical and sceptical agency will explain it away with a photo anomaly or a weather balloon or similar .... I have my own intuitive opinion, but I am not saying anything at this point ....

Universal Messages

The universe can often relay messages to us through signs. Often, we are too busy to stop and consider what may or may not be a sign. We may ask the universe for guidance, yet fail to recognize the sign it sends us in response. Learning the subtle language of signs can help you interpret the guidance the universe sends your way. We all have been blessed with a connection that allows the universe to communicate directly with us. To be able to understand the information relayed over that connection, however, it is necessary that we learn to pay attention and know what to look for.

To see and correctly interpret a sign, you must open your heart and mind to the universe and invite its guidance into your life. Many of us are blind to the signs we receive because we expect angels or our spirit guides to speak to us in a booming voice and tell us exactly what we need to hear. But signs are usually of this earth and therefore easier to encounter. A song lodged in your mind or a number that seems to pop up everywhere you look after you’ve asked the universe for guidance can both be signs. Signs may come through the animal world, from strangers, or jump out of a book in the form of an insightful passage. A sign may be a direct answer to one of your questions. Other signs may point you in the right direction, warn of impending difficulties, or show you a different way. If you want the universe to send you a sign, tell it that you are ready and willing to accept its guidance.

Not everything you hear or see will be a sign. If you are receptive and patient, however, the signs you receive will become easier to recognize. It is important to listen to your intuition. A sign can mean many things to different people, and only you can decipher a sign’s meaning is for you. As you practice reading the signs and following their guidance, the universe will send more of them your way.

Rothschilds Poodle to Deliver Instructions to US Congress

Gordon Brown will deliver an address to both Houses of Congress when he visits Washington next week, it was announced today.

The invitation represents a considerable coup for Brown, who will become only the fifth British prime minister to deliver a speech to a joint sitting of both Houses of the US legislature. The speech – almost certain to focus on the global financial crisis – will bolster his claim to be a world leader in economic affairs.

The prime minister has repeatedly made the point that the bank recapitalisation programme he launched in the autumn has been copied by other countries, and has suggested that the G20 summit – which he is hosting in London in April – could lead to significant reform of the global financial system.

Even before the invitation was announced, Brown had already achieved acts of diplomatic oneupmanship. He became the first European leader to speak to Barack Obama after his inauguration as the US president and the first to secure an invitation to Washington for face to face talks with him.

The other British prime ministers to have addressed both Houses of Congress were Winston Churchill, Clement Attlee, Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair.

Downing Street confirmed that Brown would be delivering the address after the news was released by US sources (Source: The Guardian)

Understanding Ace Tarot Cards

There is no trick to understanding ace Tarot cards once you mentally arrange the placement of these cards within the hierarchy of the deck. In other words, the aces are situated at the beginning of each suit. As such, they have the important job of introducing the passion and feel of each suit.

For example, the suit of cups delves into the territory of love, emotions, psychic awareness, and movement in our lives. The ace of cups then is a symbolic calling card and a representative for these aspects of the human cycle marked by the suit of cups.

Aces are the prime root of the suit they describe and reflect the brightest, highest energies of their ilk. Imagine each ace as rolling out the red carpet for their suit - a grand fanfare and introduction for the players on the stage of life within their specified realm. The aces hold that starting-line position at the head of the pack. They fire the runner's gun to signal the beginning of a whole new race of emotions, conditions, life-events, and concepts.

As such, the Ace cards set the mood, the tone, and the symbolism for the entire suit.

Fully understanding ace Tarot cards requires an investment in your time, imagination, and attention. The more time you spend exclusively exploring the aces, the more you will discover that they weave an intricate web of symbolic patterns and meanings throughout the entire deck. Aces are power players on the Tarot stage. Their meanings are far reaching in dynamic phsyical, emotional and mental realms of humankind. Meditate upon these cards, and new insights will abound...guaranteed!

Be bold, be bold ... but not too bold

The moment we are born, the die is cast. We walk a path with certain options 'programmed' into the sojourn. Like in a maze we have certain choices to make when faced with which passageway to take.

My viewpoint is a pre-ordained life path; a pre-determined set of parameters in which we venture in this 'virtual reality universe'. A little bit like assuming a character in a 'computer Dungeons & Dragons' adventure game ... before the game we program in the attributes of the character we are going to use ... for when we press the start button and enter the fray ...

The Sound Therapy video in a previous post (it's title alludes me at this moment in time) was very inspiring ~ it relates to fear liberation ~ and its visualisation relaxing. I am a firm believer of sound therapy anyway, having experienced its benefits first hand. I've been cast into a state of mind which is pleasant to say the least at this time of night. Clear minded, I see a path along which to follow ... a string of sentences to write.

The time seems to have arrived where expanded awareness is paramount with all the material confusion that is on the path at the moment. I sensed many years ago that this dark patch would be here. What I call 'the dark ones' have an agenda they wish to accomplish ... and us poor mortals at the foot of the pyramid are in for a torrid time. It is against the grain for the plebians at the base of the pyramid to have their true selves awakened. They wish for us to be tethered by fear ... lost deeply in their illusion of 'seperatism' .... acceptance there is no life after death; there is a hell and a demon lord called Satan who will burn our souls because of our sins; skills like clairvoyance are figments of a deluded mind ... but lo' I am not lost. I am here seeing the moving shadows around me. I am hearing the telepathic voices of departed loved ones (your mind cannot remember someone's voice?) ... but I am not deluded am I? Perhaps I am ... but I am not alone. There does seem to be a growing awakening going on at this moment in time.

Twenty years ago when I first started out as a reader and medium, it was very much a taboo subject to discuss openly anywhere outside of designated places such as Spiritualist Churches and New Age Centres. It was not raised at work or discussed in a pub. Because I was a male medium ... I was automatically 'gay' ... that was the assumption back then. But now, it's everywhere ... it's talked about openly on the streets; TV has so many medium orientated programs; I've seen astrological charts on computer screens at work recently! I've heard it discussed in so many places ... everyone these days knows someone who has been for a reading or gives readings or is in to it!

It is inspiring ... but frustrating ... I'd hung up my boots and was having a rest! But some part of my awareness is pulling at my lower consciousness to reawaken the sentience. It is like the annoying rap rap on the front door when you are tucked up on the setee watching your favourite TV show. The last thing I want to do is answer the door. But I know I will eventually succumb ... dreams are very lucid once more. Realism like never before. I have to pinch myself often in a morning to confirm I am awake in this reality! Dream reality is just as real with the same awarenesses as waking life ... thoughts going on in my head during the dream relating to the scent around me. Smells. Fears. Tensions ... all a perfect replica as the waking day.

My own philosophy again ... dream state is really another dimension. Another level of reality. Each reality has its own frequency ... the soul/spirit/inner self enters the dimension and adopts a body for that level of reality. On the reality the body will seem as real as the body we occupy on this daily reality. The same applies 'after death' ... but because the realm is on a higher frequency than the earth plane ... we will perceive anyone from that dimension as 'light' because their frequency is too fast for this level until they are able to 'tune' down their wavelength to something close to this dimensional frequency. They will then appear to possess a more solid form ... often called 'a manifestation of spirit' ....

Metaphysics has always been an easy concept for me to comprehend, ever since I was a child. I've seen and heard and touched other realms ... it is so easy for me. And I have not been plagued with a deluded mind. It was once witnessed by a friend of mine that my foot had disappeared! I was playing about with frequencies at one time and was increasing the frequency of my left leg ... without informing my friend. I then turned to him and said 'what can you see happening to my leg?' He replied with 'I don't know but what I can say is that your foot has disappeared!'. This experiment was undertaken during daylight hours ... and neither of us had been drinking or was on medication.

But even providing proof of something on these lines to a Sceptic would be met with the usual brainwashed response. So, I don't bother trying to prove anything to a debunker! I did at one time ... and I found it to be a waste of energy. I found that for every sceptic you were able to convert .... there would be another twenty waiting to belittle you round the corner! Enough was enough I declared a long time ago. So now when I meet with the same glazed look and the same cynical belittling speeches ... I merely smile and declare that 'I am on my road and you are on yours. Thanks for your opinion which you are entitled to, but if you don't mind I have an appointment to go to which I can't be late for!'

I actually welcome criticism and sceptism ... it ensures I check and double check every phenomena ... every link I get telepathically ... every shadow ... every bang on a wall ... every time my foot is grabbed or my arm tapped or my leg pinched ....!!! Seriously, it is a daily occurrence that 'something' grabs or taps or pinches me ... there is nobody around me and there can be no other explanation than something on another frequency has come to pay a visit. The sceptic would say either I am lying or I have an overactive imagination or I have a bad memory and I don't remember doing it to myself. I say LOL!

It is not their life path obviously to be open minded. Their pre-determined characteristics has been set to "no psychic awareness". I pity them. I'm glad my world is filled with entities on other dimensions and clairaudience ... I couldn't live in a world where 'when you are dead you are dead!' My reality is so much more fulfilling ... my mind open wide to all possibilities ...

And I know I am not alone in this reality I wander. There are others too on the manifest seeing and hearing the same as myself ... life is not the bland and pointless game of survival that the dark ones have us mesmerised into thinking ... no, not at all. Life is part of an infinite spiral which you constantly experience ... in many different 'physical forms' on many other dimensions ....

'Eye of God': The nebula that watches our tiny world from 700 light years away

It stares down at us from the depths of space, watching our tiny world from 700 light years away.

Scientists have nicknamed the image - captured by a giant telescope on the Chilean mountains - the eye of God. In fact, it shows the death throes of a star similar to our sun, before it retires as a 'white dwarf' believed to be the final evolutionary state of a medium-sized star.

The blue pupil, the white of the eye and pink lid are created by layers of gas and dust thrown off and illuminated by the star as it comes to the end of its life over the course of thousands of years.

First recorded by German astronomer Karl Ludwig Harding in 1824, the eye, known as the Helix nebula, lies in the constellation of Aquarius. It can be dimly seen in small backyard telescopes by amateur astronomers.

This latest spectacular and detailed picture was taken by the Wide Field Imager at the European Southern Observatory in La Silla. It shows a rich background of distant galaxies, usually not seen in other images of this object.

Covering an area of sky around a quarter the size of the full moon, the helix is so huge that it would take a beam of light two-and-a-half years to cross it. It appears to be round because we are looking at one end of the nebula. It is actually a trillion-mile-long tunnel of glowing gases. Our own sun is expected to suffer a similar fate - but not for five billion years. (Source: Daily Mail)

Fatima, Portugal

Located in west central Portugal, in the region of Leiria and approximately 110 kilometers north of Lisbon, the small town of Fatima is one of the most visited Marian shrines in the world today. But unlike many of Europe's great Marian pilgrimage sites, the sanctity of Fatima dates not from the Middle Ages but only from early in the 20th century. Fatima was then a small rural village in a rocky region whose main product was olive oil. There are no historical or legendary accounts of the village or surrounding area having any religious importance in earlier times.

In the years 1916 and 1917 a series of apparitions were seen by three young children that were to profoundly alter both their own lives and the atmosphere of the peasant village.

Most textual sources describing the Fatima events mention only the Marian apparitions that occurred in 1917. However, the girl Lucia Santos, the primary recipient of the apparitions, revealed some years later that three other apparitions in 1916, of a male figure, in fact preceded the Marian apparitions of 1917. The story begins early in 1916 when the nine-year old Lucia was sent by her parents to tend the family's sheep in the hills near the village of Fatima. She was accompanied by her cousins Francisco Marto, aged eight, and his six-year old sister, Jacinta. The children were on a hillside when they saw a vision of human figure. Writing many years later of the event, Lucia tells, "It was a figure like a statue..a young man, about fourteen or fifteen, whiter than snow". The figure spoke to the children, directing them to pray three times with him, "My God, I believe, I adore."

Later that same year a second apparition occurred, this time when the children were playing near a well by Lucia's house. The white angel again directed the children to pray with him and told them also that Jesus and Mary had plans for them. A third apparition of this male angel soon followed, near the location of the first apparition, and more lengthy prayers were given to the children. Lucia tells that the angel held some sort of chalice in his hand that he held this in the air as he knelt to pray with the children. The locations of the first and third angelic apparitions, much visited by pilgrims today, are near the path leading from the basilica of Fatima to the hamlet of Aljestrel where the children lived.

The apparitions for which Fatima is known around the world began on May 13, 1917 and continued each month through October, always on the 13th. The first vision came to Lucia and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco as they tended sheep in an isolated ravine called Cova da Iria. The children first saw two flashes of lightening and then a 'Lady, brighter than the sun, shedding rays of light' who said she was from heaven. Lucia - the only one of the three children who ever spoke to the visions - asked, 'What do you want of me?' The Lady answered, 'I want you to come here for sixth months in succession. Then I will tell you who I am and what I want'. The Lady also directed the children to pray every day for peace and for the end of the war that was then destroying Europe, and then she disappeared in a blinding light. The children, unsure of what had happened to them, promised each other to keep quiet but later Jacinta let the matter slip when talking with her parents. Soon the entire village knew of the supposed apparitions and was making fun of the children.

Nonetheless, on the day of the second apparition, on June 17, approximately 60 villagers accompanied the children to the Cova da Iris ravine. The angel, visible only to the three children, again told them to pray and also predicted the deaths of Jacinta and Francisco. As she departed, the villagers saw a cloud rising and the branches of a tree leaning toward the cloud. Following this apparition, the civil authorities of Fatima put pressure on the three children, telling them to deny what they had seen.

Undeterred, the children again went to Cova da Iris on July 13, accompanied by several hundred peasants from the local area. Disturbed by the ridicule of the villagers, Lucia asked that a divine sign be shown. In response, the angel promised that in October she would reveal her identity and she also told the children three secrets. The first was a vision of hell "like a sea of fire" to which sinners would go; the second was a prophecy that the people of Russia would be converted if the people prayed; and the third, another prophecy, was kept a secret by Lucia for many years. ...

Tarot Symbols: The Falcon


Throughout culture and myth the falcon symbol meanings have pertained to higher vision, superiority, and rising above the mundane. A common sun symbol among many cultures, the falcon also symbolizes potency, vibrancy and power. When Falcon catches our attention on the nine of pentacles, we are prompted to consider if we are living our lives in-line with our vision. Are we living at our highest potential? The falcon asks us to fly high and blaze the sky with our own brilliance. (tarot teachings)

Quote for the Day

"If our minds are glorious mansions, and our spirits are the surrounding landscape, then the Tarot is a doorway revealing a wide realm of ever-increasing beauty, insight, and mystical experience." --A.Venefica

Temperance Tarot Card Meaning

We have to be thoughtful in our approach to this card because its meaning won't hit us over the head like a ton of bricks. Rather, it's a subtle card that whispers in our ear "come closer."

As we lean in closer to hear with our spiritual ears exactly what Temperance has to say - we find we aren't listening for words at all. What we hear is the tranquil waters running through our spirits. These are cleansing rivers that run through our energies, providing us with peace and healing. Imagine you are diving into the crystal clear waters. Diving in is an act of connecting to our source and by connecting we find rejuvenation in the rhythmic flow of healing waters moving through us.

Mesmerising, isn't it?


There is a lot of power in this card, and the "flow" is the source of that power. The Temperance card is a call for us to recognize the flow in our own lives, and observe the nature of energy. When we pull this card in a reading it is an indication that a healing is in need or is taking place. It is also a sign that subtle shifts are or need to take place in order to gain that peaceful scene we see pictured in this card.

When we quietly and objectively investigate our life's path we begin to see patterns. Temperance encourages us to take these patterns and find a good balance in our lives. Envision the flowing waters of this card and see all imbalances drifting away in your life. When moderation is put into play, and we connect with a natural flow, then healing begins to occur at all levels.

The keyword chemistry is included here because Temperance deals with mixing the right ingredients in our lives in order to flow easily upon the path of our choosing. It takes a little time to balance the load just right, but once we do we experience some tremendous breakthroughs in our progress.

On a more day-to-day level the Temperance card often indicates a commitment to sobriety, a healing taking place, a need for emotional stability, and a need for self-love. Very often spiritual seekers will pull this card as a promise of new growth after they've experienced spiritual "drought." (taroteachings.com)

Melting red Omega moon rising: Photographer catches rare lunar spectacle

It's the rising of the moon - but not as we know it. This stunning sequence of pictures captures a lunar mirage caused by the moon's light being warped by layers of air of different temperatures.

As the rays graze the boundary between the layers, they are bent, creating the illusion of a second moon attached to the first. Within a matter of minutes, the two separate and the lower 'moon' slips back into the ocean. The rare, naturally occurring phenomenon, dubbed the 'Etruscan Vase' by Jules Verne after its unusual shape, was captured on film in the US earlier this month. At its heart is an abnormally-warm layer of air just above the ocean, generated by the sun-warmed afternoon sea. On the day these pictures were taken, the water was a relatively balmy 39F (4C), while the air high above it was a rather more chilly 18F (-8C).

When the full moon's rays hit the boundary between the hot and the cold, their path was warped, creating a mirage of a second moon in its wake. The effect, which is similar to the mirage of a puddle of water on a road surface on a baking hot day, was captured by amateur photographer John Stetson at Casco Bay in Maine earlier this month.

Five Things

Our primary relationship in life is with our selves. No one else goes through every experience in life with us. We are our one permanent companion, yet we are often our worst critic. To remind ourselves of our magnificence, we can do this exercise: “Five Things I Like About Myself.”

Begin by writing down at least five things that you like about yourself. This is not the time to be modest. If you are having trouble coming up with a total of five items, you know that this exercise can really benefit you. Be sure to include more than your physical attributes on your list, since our bodies are only part of who we are. If you are still struggling with what to include on your list, think of what you like about your favorite people, because these traits are probably qualities that you possess too. Another way to complete your list is to think of five things you don’t like about yourself and find something about these traits that you can like.

Continue this process for a week, thinking of five new things you like about yourself everyday. At the end of the week, read the list aloud to yourself while standing in front of a mirror. Instead of looking for flaws to fix, allow the mirror to reflect your magnificence. You may feel silly about standing in front of a mirror and reading aloud a list of your admirable attributes, but it might just bring a smile to your face and change the way you see yourself. Remember, it is when you feel the most resistant that this exercise can benefit you the most. Because we are constantly looking at the world, instead of looking at ourselves, we don’t often see what’s magnificent about ourselves that others do. When we take the time to experience ourselves the way we would experience someone we love and admire, we become our best companion and supporter on life’s journey. (Daily Om)

Inspiration for the day ...

All the pain and suffering in the world,
does not prove that existence is,
meaningless and absurd.
Instead, they confirm,
the importance and value,
of *your* life,
in coming to terms with,
the nature of finite existence,

and in providing comfort and relief,
to others who are suffering.

The Hanged Man tarot image ...

The Hanged Man is one of the most mysterious cards in the tarot deck. It is simple, but complex. It attracts, but also disturbs. It contradicts itself in countless ways. The Hanged Man is unsettling because it symbolizes the action of paradox in our lives. A paradox is something that appears contradictory, and yet is true. The Hanged Man presents to us certain truths, but they are hidden in their opposites.

The main lesson of the Hanged Man is that we "control" by letting go - we "win" by surrendering. The figure on Card 12 has made the ultimate surrender - to die on the cross of his own travails - yet he shines with the glory of divine understanding. He has sacrificed himself, but he emerges the victor. The Hanged Man also tells us that we can "move forward" by standing still. By suspending time, we can have all the time in the world.

In readings, the Hanged Man reminds us that the best approach to a problem is not always the most obvious. When we most want to force our will on someone, that is when we should release. When we most want to have our own way, that is when we should sacrifice. When we most want to act, that is when we should wait. The irony is that by making these contradictory moves, we find what we are looking for. (Source: Learn Tarot)

Daily Merlin Insight: Sigil of the 357 Mystery

Daily Merlin Insight
Wednesday 25th January 2009

The focus is the sigil image (on the right) which relates to a Daily Merlin Insight undertaken in 2008 ... the sigil the resultant pattern formed by a crystal casting which was incorporated in the insight at that time.

The intention of the Insight, this time, is to treat the sigil as a RV set of co-ordinates ~ the pattern relating to the events and occurrences somewhere within the Madeleine McCann mystery.

Clearly on first viewing, this time around the sigil comprises 7 spheres interconnected by 5 lines of varying lengths. In the background a series of concentric circles like rippls emanating out from the 3rd sphere from the bottom.

Already we have 3 5 7 from this observation ... so the concentric circles relate to the night of the disappearance on 3/5/07 ... and the sigil relates to the entire mystery as a whole. The entire energy of the situation contained in that pattern. The cause, the reason, the solution ... etc etc ... could therefore be determined from this pattern, somehow. The pattern is therefore the complete embodiment of who is responsible; where Madeleine has been taken to; where she is now .... etc.

The pattern resembles The Hanged Man of the tarot ... the upside down character depicted in many popular tarot packs. An embodiment of longelivity and endurance in my mind. Others will have their own interpretation of this tarot trump.

The size of the outward flowing concentric circles (the ripples) implies the outflowing impact this case has had in the world. It got the world's attention just like it was meant to do. It has lifted awareness of missing children; of paedo rings; of media corruption ... and then has gone to ground. Hidden now are the key issues. No media coverage (or very little) .... just a presence still in Forums which are observed by big brotheresque monitoring techniques ...

But what is perhaps happening at this point in time? Where within the pattern should one look to find this information? Can the sigel really provide this information? Is it in a language or code which can be tapped? Perhaps ... without referencing back to the original working ... the keys to this sigel are perhaps the tarot. Because after all, the sigel emerged from a tarot card working. Remember, this is intuitive reaction to being faced with a sigel symbol - the only information to hand - much like the random number given to a remote viewer during an RV experiment. It is no different here ... awareness is undertaking to decipher the pattern. These are the field notes of this experiment.

Thus, turning to the tarot is the next intuitive step ... seven images to be chosen from the tarot deck ... therefore ...

6 of Crescents
3 of Staves
High Priestess
Temperance
Giver of Spheres
The Devil
Strength (the lady in white) ...

In no particular order in the list above, the images must have an order ~ a beginning and an ending. Thus - let us proceed first with the High Priestess; the occult minded woman who has a link to the medical world, the world of religion and also the world of business/finance. She is the first port of call. She is omnipresent in this mystery. Has appeared almost constantly through it all. Has been known to observe this blog space (intuitively sensed). She is the mystery. She appears the devoted religious person, carrying the cross on her heart. But she is also cunning in business ... and is somewhere linked to a medical procedure indicated in the Giver of Spheres which is the next image in the series.

In this image we have the familiar sense of a business woman handing out a sphere to the individual who is dressed as the jester/the fool. The foolish one perhaps risking this exchange. The fool in the terminology of the tarot - him at the start of the long spiritual journey of realisation? Beside the business woman are a pile of similar spheres. Are these the eggs linked to an IVF process engineered by the High Priestess (a magical or alchemical process perhaps in the eyes of the tarot. A magical process perhaps in the eyes of the conventional medical world as well perhaps?). There is a degree of risk felt with this image. The jester risks so much with this exchange. It is perhaps illegal or non-conventional or certainly against the grain with regard to religious connections?

Temperance is sensed as the next card in the progression ~ a belief in the blessing of an archangel perhaps the heal wounded souls? The power of prayer to grant a child to a couple desperate to have a family? Temperance indicates the calming of troubled waters in one sense; but it also depicts in the image problems which lie in the background. Issues which can only be further worsened by this means of conceiving a child being discovered? There is apparent disapproval and repercussions in the back-clothe of this couple. Storm clouds in the sky, impending doom. Risk and perhaps warnings of future troubles if conditions of the exchange are not met? The connections linking to the High Priestess perhaps unsavoury and dangerous?

Three of Staves is next, and the establishment of strength - the birth of 'the tower of strength' and the creation of the triangle of three ... mother, father and daughter. A very powerful bond. A successful birth ... noticed and monitored by the agents of the High Priestess. Progress noted ... and noticed in the wrong places. Corruption becomes aware of this child and the success of the process perhaps? For a time this triangle of strength is unbreakable ...

Then comes the 6 of Crescents and the ensuing nightmares ... the taking of the replica child ... somehow the child born of the sphere provided by the Giver is seen by someone as a replica of an original? Is this a hint that there is some kind of cell clonisation having been undertaken here? Was there a donor involved in the process? Was another woman used in the process and it was her own egg used in the process and she became aware of the identity of the child and her relationship to her? Perhaps the High Priestess herself? Corruption crept in here ... and maybe blackmail was the result. But it was more far reaching than this, with influential and powerful people also using the process? And the corrupted for their own sick games? The High Priestess seems to have great influence ... and has all the powerful people tied into some kind of network here ... and there has been the exposure of some very shadowy places as a result of this network.

Next we have The Devil and the power of fear. The power of suggestion. The ability to bury the truth of this situation right before the public's eyes but by putting it in plain view it is hidden. Fear has been used as the key in all of this. The mystery relates to taboo subjects. It has bound Kate & Gerry McCann to the establishment and a mind set which controls the general public. There is a deliberate path been created along which Gerry & Kate have had to walk. They have had no choice in the matter. Clear instructions ... to take to have their daughter returned. The Devil adopts the 'man in the moon' pose ... one who is above the law. Someone linked to the crown ... linked to many aspects of the business world. A family who manipulates the situation ... and here cometh the encryption once more ... ultimately agents of this powerful influence pull the strings which control the network ... it is a much bigger scenario than just the McCanns. The mystery of Madeleine McCann is one tiny part of a much bigger agenda orchestrated by this man in the moon. It is a Trojan Horse for sure ...

Finally, The Strength image depicting the lady in white grappling with the red lion. The emphasis here seems to be on Kate McCann with this tarot image and a role she appears to have played ... or is still playing. She is an ambassador to a cause which is tackling the toothache of the red lion. For Kate this seems a role she will not have been accustomed to in the first instance. There is a feeling of dedication and determination with the lady in white here despite embarrassment at being in the public eye and to have to go out of her comfort zone.

Intuition declares a real difficulty for Gerry & Kate in ending the infinite spirals created by this mystery. It will be a gargantuan effort to get Madeleine back .... but they WILL succeed. The Man in the Moon appears to have his agencies dangle a carrot every now and again to ensure that Gerry & Kate go along the stepping stones he requires them to. At some point they will be reunited with their daughter. She is NOT buried someplace. She has NOT been murdered by her parents. She did NOT die accidentally in the apartment that night. There is some confusion hinted at within the sigel pattern ~ there is a sense she was not in the apartment that night. There is a feeling too of false witness statements which were deemed to be necessary ... somewhere there was deceit and confusion created to ensure that the abductor was permitted to get away. Without the authorities being made to fall over each other the abduction could not have taken place. It was a close call ... and eyes are now TOO close to where Madeleine is at this moment in time for things to go to the next stage. The McCanns cannot be blamed for anything that took place that night ... the public have not been provided the true events of the night ... and the deception has been deliberate by agents of the family of the man in the moon to promote the power of suggestion. There was evidence planted in the apartment to promote the 'blood on the wall' accusations. It is deemed here as some kind of threat to Gerry & Kate to conform to the instructions given to them ....

The Killing Words

Queensryche unplugged

Khephra

The 29th path linking Malkuth to Netzach is that of the moon (Atu XVIII), the Astral path leading mundane perception to the pure animal drives and sexual desire of venus, the planetary symbol of Netzach. This is a dangerous path, employing a ligthning-swift retroversion of the senses linking the moon of Yesod to the moon of Da’ath via the symbol of Khephra, the midnight sun resplendent in darkness connecting the path leading from Netzach to Tiphareth, the path of Death (Atu XIII). In the alchemical sense, Death means change via putrification. This is emphasised by the Qliphotic Guardian NIANTIEL, a distorted image of the reaper Saturn, which sentinels the underside, or tunnel, of this path leading straight to the dark Tiphareth.

The path of the moon which connects the Malkuth-Netzach-Tiphareth complex is the transformative link. I have found that a curious state of consciousness persists on this path that can be likened to a vortex. One working provided images that described the transmutation involved:

"YESOD: Anubis wolves howling at the moon. A silver Priestess with a low, weird voice and a crescent shape on her ajna-chakra gives birth to the full moon which falls into the ocean. A great insect-fish carries it in its jaws…"

This stimulated the idea of the moon of Yesod directly fecunding the depths of the unconscious - earthing the current in the Daathian underworld without the interference of mundane consciousness. The suggestion is that the reflective source of the moon is identical to the sun in Amenta which the Scarab beetle carries through the abyss.

The source of the Priestesses’ "weird voice" produces ideas related to the lunar oracular state BATHKOL, mentioned in Kenneth Grant’s books. The fact that in the vision the Priestess’s image and voice were sexually alluring connects the idea of this form of lunar magick with the god-form of this path, Khephra, the god who has "union with his hand", formulating the succubus, or shadow woman of the moon. Interestingly, Grant has equated Bathkol with Besqul, a series of subsidiary tunnels that pervade the dark side of the path whose guardian is QULIELFI. The first letter of this guardian’s name, and the letter associated with the moon, is Qoph, literally "the back of the head"; a phrase which resonates images of the moon of Da’ath - the dream images in the cerebellum, stored away in an abyss, divided from the light of dayside consciousness. The number of Qoph is 100, the number of the Witches dark goddess, Hecate, the mother of Lamias.

The sinister retroversion associated with this path can be related to Khephra Himself, the bearer of the Qoph-moon, or Black sun of Set, along the way between Netzach and Tiphareth. The way in question transforms the magician into the bearer of the Black Sun, whose radiation may cause a retroversion to a state of death along the 24th Path. The magician’s body, stripped clean of its flesh by the Qlipoth of Netzach, GHARAB TZEREK, "the Ravens of Death", allegorises the negredo alchemical state, and suggests the horrific descriptions of black alchemy hinted at in the stories of Arthur Machen. The magical workings of this path, not surprisingly, are ones concerned with Necromancy and Zombieism via the retention of the sun-seed (Karezza), which the Khephra beetle, withholding the sun symbolises. It is important to note that this working, while it penetrates the mysteries of death and decay, may be ultimately dangerous in freezing the unwary magician into an inert state of eternal death. This is perhaps emphasized in the Clark Ashton Smith story "Sadastor" which describes the barren, dead world of a dying Lamia (haunter of the 24th tunnel). By simple gematria Sadastor (SDShTUR) = 160, the number of NIANTIEL (160). The demon that visits this world of the dead in attempt to revitalise it is CHARDANIS, = 123: the book of the Qliphotic cells is Liber 231…

The visualisation of the magician as Khephra, the bearer of the sun of Set, acts as a protective capsule. Once the state of Black Tiphareth has been attained, the dark emanations transform into the warming rays of the sun of Horus, the light of manifestation. This describes the locus of "coming forth by day", the travelling of the spirit in Amenta, the land of the midnight sun, where the sun within, and the sun without, are united. The magician, alchemically renewed, shines forth. (Source: philhine.org)

Big Brother spy planes that track the Taliban may soon hover over your home

Pilotless planes used to track the Taliban could soon be hovering over our streets, it has emerged.

Remote-controlled drones are already used widely by the military. Now ministers believe they are likely to become 'increasingly useful' for police work. Armed with heat-seeking cameras, the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles would hover hundreds of feet in the air, gathering intelligence and watching suspects.

In theory, their advantages are clear. They are cheaper and quieter than conventional helicopters, can circle their target for hours without refuelling - and they don't get bored on long surveillance missions. However, their use is likely to further fuel concerns about our march towards a Big Brother state. Britain already has more CCTV cameras than the rest of Europe put together.

More than four million closed-circuit TV cameras cover the streets; cars are monitored using cameras that check registration plates and a new law will see footage taken of shoppers buying alcohol.

The plan to deploy 'spy in the sky' planes is outlined in the Home Office's latest Science and Innovation Strategy. It says: 'Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are likely to be an increasingly useful tool for police in the future, potentially reducing the number of dangerous situations the police may have to enter and also providing evidence for prosecutions and support police operations in "real time".'

Saturn in Astrology

Saturn, is the ruler of Capricorn. In Greek Mythology, Cronus was one of the Titans, and the father of Zeus. Cronus ate his children to prevent himself from being dethroned as the King of the Gods. That is, until his wife, Rhea, tricked him into swallowing a stone when Zeus was born.

In astrology, Saturn is associated with restriction and limitation. Where Jupiter expands, Saturn constricts. Although the themes of Saturn seem depressing, Saturn brings structure and meaning to our world. Saturn knows the limits of time and matter. Saturn reminds us of our boundaries, our responsibilities, and our commitments. It brings definition to our lives. Saturn makes us aware of the need for self-control and of boundaries and our limits.

Saturn is often associated with our fathers or father/authority figures. In childhood, the discipline, rules, and regulations imposed on us by our authority figures--from parents, teachers, and the like--were not always pleasant, but they actually helped us to understand the world around us. Similarly, Saturn's lessons actually help us to grow.

In the chart, the position of Saturn by sign and house reveals our own limitations, fears, and sense of responsibility. Saturn brings definition, and often limitation, to the planets it aspects. (Read More ...)

Sacred Sound Alchemy for DNA Repair and Healing

Forgotten In Time: The Ancient Solfeggio Frequencies

There is no taste, no sound, no light and no colour. Our taste and sound receptors are impulse converters; There is no light and no color outside of our brain. Colours and light are formed in our brains by conversion. Light energy vibrations of different frequency (i.e., of different wavelengths) are converted by a transducer (the eye) into signals (impulses) that can be received and processed by neurons in the brain of as colours.

Love signal is a healing audio and visual meditation with music, sacred geometry and Solfeggio frequency 528 Hz, the miraculous frequency for transformation and DNA repair. There is a special sound and colour of love according to Dr. Horowitz, a Harvard-trained award-winning investigator. Broadcasting the right frequency can help open your heart, prompt peace, and hasten healing.

"We now know the love signal, 528 Hertz, is among the six core creative frequencies of the universe because math doesn't lie, the geometry of physical reality universally reflects this music; these findings have been independently derived, peer reviewed, and empirically validated," Dr. Horowitz says.

Music & video by Jandy the Decibel Jezebel Poem by Katie Pye The Solfeggio Scale and note names; 1. UT...396 Hz (Center Pillar of the Tree) The third note, frequency 528, relates to the note MI on the scale and derives from the phrase "MI-ra gestorum" in Latin meaning "miracle." Stunningly, this is the exact frequency used by genetic biochemists to repair broken DNA - the genetic blueprint upon which life is based! MI - 528 Hz - relates to crown chakra. Dr Mirahorian suggests an association with DNA integrity,transformation and Miracles . MI - 528 Hz - relates to crown chakra; The regular "C" that we all know of in this culture (which is from the diatonic scale of do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, do) is not the 528 Hz frequency "C. A regular "C" vibrates at a frequency of 512 Hz. The "C" of 528 Hz used for DNA repair is part of an ancient scale called the Solfeggio Scale

Hard Learned Lessons

We all have days from time to time when it feels like the world is against us or that the chaos we are experiencing will never end. One negative circumstance seems to lead to another. You may wonder, on a bad day, whether anything in your life will ever go right again. But a bad day, like any other day, can be a gift. Having a bad day can show you that it is time to slow down, change course, or lighten up. A bad day can help you glean wisdom you might otherwise have overlooked or discounted. Bad days can certainly cause you to experience uncomfortable feelings you would prefer to avoid, yet a bad day may also give you a potent means to learn about yourself.

You may consider a bad day to be one where you’ve missing an important meeting because your car stalled, the dryer broke, and you received a piece of very bad news earlier in the morning. Multiple misfortunes that take place one after the other can leave us feeling vulnerable and intensely cognizant of our fragility. But bad days can only have a long-term negative effect on us if we let them. It is better to ask yourself what you can learn from these kinds of days. The state of your bad day may be an indicator that you need to stay in and hibernate or let go of your growing negativity.

Bad days contribute to the people we become. Though we may feel discouraged and distressed on our bad days, a bad day can teach us patience and perseverance. It is important to remember that your attitude drives your destiny and that one negative experience does not have to be the beginning of an ongoing stroke of bad luck. A bad day is memorable because it is one day among many good days – otherwise, we wouldn’t even bother to acknowledge it as a bad day. Know too, that everybody has bad days, you are not alone, the world is not against you. Tomorrow is guaranteed to be a brighter day.

A Word on 'The Aura'

The Aura is the energy field around both animate and inanimate objects. It contains information about the health of a creature, its emotional and mental state, and many other things. Colour, texture, shape, size, and motion of the aura all provide information about the creature or item.

To see the Aura, first relax your body, still your mind, and then relax your eyes. Then, choose any object or a person to look at that won't make you nervous. Begin by looking gently at the object, focusing your eyes slightly behind it. Then begin to look at the object/person with your “third eye” ~ the pineal gland of the mind or the central point of the forehead ~ which is attributed psychic and clairvoyant visions.

Next, close your eyes and feel your awareness focus ‘shift upwards’ slightly, taking your attention away from looking out of your eyes, so that you seem then to be looking out of your forehead.

Now, open your eyes, and feel your awareness focus shift back down to normal sight. Open and close your eyes a few times to learn how it feels. Avoid rolling your eyes upward; that will just give you a headache.

Once you are confident of the focus shift, do it gently with your eyes open. Look out of your eyes and your forehead at the same time. This shift of focus awakens psychic vision, which is used to see auras. To observe the aura at this point, look gently just past the object, using your eyes to see and keeping your focus lifted to the third eye.

When you begin to see lines/segments of colour around the object, you need to determine if it is an after-image of the object or the actual aura of the object.

After-images are defined as a ‘biological effect of your eyes’, caused by eyestrain. To determine if it is an after image, look at the circular image for at least 30 seconds, and then look at an empty space beside the object, or better still, a blank wall. The opposite-colour image you will then see is an after-image.

To prevent after-images, blink often and don't look at one object for too long. As you improve, you will see the aura within a few seconds, before any after-images begin to appear. When you first observe colour or lines around an object, look away to make sure it's not an after-image. To eliminate after-images, close your eyes for a minute or two. When you stop seeing the image on the inside of your eyes, the after-image is gone and you can go back to seeing the aura.

Auras have many shapes, sizes, colours, and textures. There is no standard interpretation because different people perceive differently. The best way to discover the meanings of colours and other attributes is to experiment with viewing as many auras as you can. Better still if you choose someone you know, and observe them during different emotional and mental states. This way you can determine an aura colour for ‘angry’, for ‘happy’, for ‘sad’ etc. Then it would be interesting to choose another ‘subject’, see their aura at a given time and determine if their mood at that time coincides with your own interpretation of a particular colour or pattern seen in their aura. Alternatively, read about traditional meanings and use them to decide what the colours mean to you. For instance, someone who is decisive about his personal space may have a clear edge on his aura, a solid, dense energy, and sharp, clear lines. The aura can affect and be affected by a person's health.

Stay relaxed and calm as you practice. Practice often, but don't tire yourself. Often, the moment you relax and quit trying, you will suddenly see the aura quite clearly. If things aren't working, take a break, do something fun, and try again later when you can be more relaxed and patient. Aura vision may be easier when you are sleepy because you won't have the energy to force anything. If you have a difficult time letting things happen without forcing them, try once or twice when you are tired or sleepy.

Dim lighting can be helpful so you don't strain your eyes. Put a solid coloured background behind the object. Grey, white, brown, and dark colours work well because they are not visually distracting.

The aura has multiple layers, like an onion, but with each layer reaching from the very centre of the person outward. Close to the body, all of the layers overlap. Each layer out reaches farther away from the body and becomes less dense, lighter, subtler, and more difficult to see.

Maybe, first, practice seeing the inner layers. As you improve, let your awareness expand, growing lighter and softer. Reach outward with your aura to feel the aura you are looking at. Feel your vision shifting more strongly toward the third eye and clairvoyance. Remain relaxed and feeling light as your vision expands to include the outer layers.
