Silbury Hill, Nr Avebury.

The Lady of the Lake

This mysterious female gave Arthur his sword, Excalibur. She stole Lancelot when he was a child and cured him when he went mad. She may be a Celtic lake divinity in origin, perhaps of the same kind as the Gwagged Annwn - lake fairies in modern Welsh folklore. In Ulrich, the fairy who raised Lancelot is the mother of Mabuz. As Mabuz is probably identical with the Celtic god Mabon, it would seem that the fairy must be Morgan Le Fay who was, earlier, Mabon's mother. Matrona. A lady of the lake, perhaps a different one, was killed by Balin.

Vivien may very well have been the Lady of the Lake in the Arthurian Legends and stories. Vivien, sometimes called Nineve, Nimue, Niniane, etc., is best known as the woman who sealed Merlin in a cave or a tree. Despite foreseeing his fate, Merlin was unable to prevent being captivated and captured by the woman Richard Wilbur has called "a creature to bewitch a sorcerer." Vivien is an ambiguous character. In Malory, for example, even though Nyneve, who is one of the Ladies of the Lake, deprives Arthur of Merlin's service, she rescues him twice, first by saving him from Accolon who has been given Excalibur by Morgan le Fay to use against Arthur, and then by preventing him from donning the destructive cloak sent to him by Morgan. She also uses her enchantments to punish Ettarde for her mistreatment of Pelleas. In the end she and Pelleas "lovede togedyrs duryng their lyfe." (King Arthurs Knights)

Rider Of The Soul

It is invisible, a translucent skin to life,
A shell of awareness observing every thought, every deed, every notion
In control of each emotion; aware and dangerous
Like a deadly virus swimming in the electrical sea of sub-consciousness
An anvil on which punishment or reward can be created,
can be moulded or modified ...
The bringer of pain or pleasure
An imitator of conscience ... a generator of desire
A craftsman with keys which has access to every recess of consciousness
A puppeteer with dark intention, riding thoughts with ease ...
Controlling the child, influencing freewill if it were a trusted friend
A silent voice there in the back of the mind, familiar now,
Operant conditioner ensuring it is accepted like a faultless advisor
An awareness fuelled by the darkest intent reaping chaos on a whim
Cracking biochemical whips to punish when it doesn’t get its way.
A mountain the adult cannot climb, the tumour-like thoughts too deep to remove
The rider too established to remove; conscious awareness a witness to the ghoul
unable to neutralise its hold; the rider bringing misery into life
Connecting demons and dark desires to this consciousness,
preventing the use of freewill; attracting the attention of angelic presence
which detects the fugue which grips the human from time to time.
The darkness grips the human in a fatal hold,
forcing the wrong decisions to be made ......
And the adult is powerless, for it was the child who welcomed the rider
and befriended it in times of complete innocence.
And life has been one misadventure after misadventure
Desperation and disaster have materialised at every corner
Rendering progress to be slow ...

Meat Claimed as Invention by Monsanto

'Multinational seed corporations are following a consequent strategy to gain control over basic resources for food production. As recent research shows not only genetically engineered plants, but more and more the conventional breeding of plants gets into the focus of patent monopolies: International patent applications in this sector are skyrocking, having doubled since 2007 till end of 2009.

Further on the multinationals expand their claims over the whole chain of food production from feed to animals and food products such as meat. In a pending patent application from Monsanto even bacon and steaks are claimed: Patent application WO2009097403 is claiming meat stemming from pigs being fed with the patented genetically engineered plants of Monsanto...Read more:

A Sketch Of A Physical Description Of The Universe


The hypothesis of yet unknown members of the planetary series calls to mind the opinion of Hellenic antiquity that there were far more than five planets; these were, indeed, all that had been observed, but many others might remain unseen, on account of the feebleness of their light and their position. Such a doctrine was especially attributed to Artemidorus of Ephesus. Another old Hellenic, and perhaps even Egyptian, belief appears to have been that "the celestial bodies which we now see were not all visible in earlier times". Connected with such a physical or much rather historical myth is the remarkable form of the praise of a high antiquity which some races ascribed to themselves.

Thus, the pre-Hellenic Pelasgian inhabitants of Arcadia called themselves Proselenes, because they boasted that they came into the country before the Moon accompanied the Earth. Pre-Hellenic and pre-lunarian were synonymous. The appearance of a star was represented as a celestial event, as the Deucalionic flood was a terrestrial event. Apuleius (Apologia, vol. ii, p. 494, ed. Oudendorp; Cosmos, vol. ii, p. 557, note) extends the flood as far as the Gatulean mountains of Northern Africa. Apollonius Rhodius, who according to Alexandrian custom was fond of imitating old models, speaks of the early colonization of the Egyptians in the valley of the Nile:
"The stars did not yet revolve in the Heavens; nor had the Danaides yet appeared, or the race of Deucalion." ... READ MORE...

A Word on 'Psychomanteum'

A psychomanteum (sometimes spelled as psychomantium, and often called "mirror gazing") is a mirrored room, specially set up to communicate with the spiritual realm. Reflective objects or surfaces, such as blood or water, were considered a conduit to the spiritual world in ancient times. Sometimes described as an "apparition booth" the psychomanteum dates back to ancient Greece, where a person would gaze into a still pool of water. This silent and steady gazing into a reflective pool would produce apparitions or visions. In 1958, the Classical Greek archaeologist, Sotiris Dakaris found accommodation near the Dodona oracle spoken of by Homer and Herodotus, where supplicants would wait their turn at the oracle in complete darkness. An extensive maze led to a long central apparition hallway where the experience took place. There Dakaris found the remnants of a bronze cauldron ringed with a banister which made it appear that the people who were seeing the apparitions would be gazing at the cauldron.

Holding Space For Others

We have all been called upon at one time or another to help a loved one through a difficult time. When the help required consists of concrete actions, such as running errands or making phone calls, we know what to do. But sometimes we are called simply to hold space for the person as they go through whatever they need to go through. They may need to express anger or grief; they may need to talk or be silent. They may need us to hold their hand; they may need us to give them time alone. Whatever the case, when we hold space for someone, we offer ourselves up as a container for the overwhelming feelings they may be encountering due to their circumstances. When we offer ourselves in this way, the more centered and grounded we are, the better. Our steadiness allows our companion to lean into us for support, as our presence provides an environment in which they can be free to move. We can also help by being responsive, allowing them to dictate the flow of action from talking to not talking, from anger to grief, and back again. By being aware and open, we can help them confront their feelings when that feels right, and back off from them when they need a break. Holding space requires humility, conscientiousness, and the ability to step out of the way, to honestly understand that this is not about us. When we love someone in this way, we provide a space in which they can simply be. Able to feel what they need to feel without worrying about how they are being perceived. We can provide this offering in person, over the phone, or even from a distance, through meditation. However we do it, when we hold space for someone in need, we are offering a gift of the highest nature.

"Fruit Man Illusions'

At NYC sci fest, asking 'What if we're holograms?'

Brian Greene works in a world where scientific reasoning rules all and imagination leads to the most unlikely truths.

Greene and other "string theorists" are exploring a possible scenario in which people and the world around us are actually a 3-D holographic projection of two-dimensional data that exists outside the accessible universe.

It's a concept so mindbending for those who don't understand the complex math behind it that many might decide it's best left to the academics. But Greene wants to build public excitement about science, even as the U.S. loses ground in some areas — and intends to bring even the most complex ideas to the masses at this week's World Science Festival, which starts June 2.

"The idea is to ... find the compelling narrative and stories that allow these programs to really feel like an experience and not a lesson," says Greene, wearing a leather jacket that practically exudes old-school, rock-star cool. It's an appropriate look for a man who has brought the possible inner workings of the universe to scores of non-geniuses through his book "The Elegant Universe" and the PBS specials by the same name.

The physicist founded the festival in 2008 with his wife, Tracy Day. In a way, they say, it's an extension of his work translating into layman's terms the fundamentals of string theory — the idea that the universe and its most fundamental forces could be best explained if everything around us were made up of minuscule, vibrating strings...READ MORE...

Obama Administration Blocked Efforts to Stop BP Oil Drilling Before Explosion

In 2009, the Obama administration intervened to support the reversal of a court order that would have halted offshore oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. Obama’s Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, who has long had close ties to the industry, specifically cited BP’s Deepwater Horizon operation as one that should be allowed to go forward, according to a group involved in the court case. A Washington DC Appeals Court ruled in April 2009 that the Bush administration’s five-year plan for offshore oil and gas drilling (covering 2007 to 2012) was not based on a proper review of the environmental impact of the drilling. Only days before the ruling, the Obama administration had granted BP a “categorical exclusion,” exempting it from an environmental impact study for the Deepwater Horizon project"...Read more:

Reaching Out Thro’ The Portals

Tentacles reaching out, scrapes of gossamer banners across a blood red sky
Cloudless majesty backlit by the eternal sky nation ...
Powerful visions, words spoken in whispers have forgotten ... filled with power
Recalled later in the Inipi ... visions of another spirit ... beckoning to cross a doorway
The threshold to another dimension, like a portal ...
Later ... cross-legged, deep in concentration ... crossing the great river in the sunlight
Water deep, too deep to cross ... fearlessly floating, treading the crystal clear water
All memories of the star life alive in every molecule ....
Coming back ... the pain the memory which breaks the concentration
Smudging away the demons ... recalling the attacks in the night, a continual nightmare
Understanding the words whispered by the ancestors ... the seekers ... they come.
Beneath ... another blood red sky ... he stands hands akimbo, watching the heavens
Aware but silent ... to hide away from the winged horrors ...
the unspeakable that crosses the night ... seeking the wielders of the ancient light
He senses, he is aware ... and holds on to a gossamer strand with his mind
Invisible to the mortals trapped in their materialistic world ... tied to the machine timing
They do not see that which is natural but has been hidden behind the cine town illusions ...
Hidden behind the back clothe which the gaolers create to fool the mortals
He sees the tickertape trails which lead from one dimension to another through the portals
Those magical places the gaolers keep under lock and key; for use only by themselves ...
He is aware of one in the landscape before him ... and of one in the landscape he left
With ultimate magic he connects to many places that exist beyond the portals
He reaches out to the one nearest to his new home ...
He sees the red man sitting on the mesa peak which is his sacred space
and realises the potent connection then like no other time
Nothing is by chance in any of the many lives; the reason so easy to read in the signs all around
The seekers walk ... moving in on the bearers of the sacred keys
Summoning the ghouls to come ... to silence the threat to the gaoler’s plans
The darkest diamond shards only neutralised by the combining of all the quicksilver segments
in each of their every lives ... their separation a deliberate act to dilute their lights
By some wondrous act of magic, the timeless mages reach out through the hidden portals
connecting with the other fragments of themselves ... to defeat the ghouls once and for all ...

The 13 Preambles of Wicca - 5: Achieve Balance

Balance is important in any metaphysical way of thought just as it is in any religion or philosophy. You strive to achieve a balance of body, mind, and spirit through various forms and knowledge. Many of us have moments when we feel like this balance has been achieved, and yet it fades after a while. Remember that we are all human, and therefore a prone to making mistakes and it is ok to do so. There are of course some individuals out there Sai Baba for instance that has fully attained this type of balance, but for most of us it will come and go. The main lesson is to allow it to come and when it leaves learn and apply what you have learned to attain it once again.

New Face of Abductor

THE top investigator working for Kate and Gerry McCann is considering releasing a new image of the man suspected of abducting their daughter Madeleine.

Former Detective Inspector Dave Edgar travelled to Portugal last week to show the e-fit style image to a new witness.

Portuguese Carlos Moreira, 65, has just come forward to say he saw a girl aged about four lying drowsily on a pile of clothes in the back of a white van.

It happened the day after Madeleine vanished from her holiday apartment in Praia da Luz on the Algarve on May 3, 2007.

Mr Moreira has confirmed the image bears a strong resemblance to the driver of the van, which was parked at a roadside snack bar 160 miles north of the resort.(Sunday Express)

Some Buddhist Inspiration ...

In a sense everything is dreamlike and illusory, but even so, humorously you go on doing things. For example, if you are walking, without unnecessary solemnity or self-consciousness, lightheartedly walk toward the open space of truth. When you sit, be the stronghold of truth. As you eat, feed your negativities and illusions into the belly of emptiness, dissolving them into all-pervading space. And when you go to the toilet, consider all your obscurations and blockages are being cleansed and washed away---Dudjom Rinpoche

From The Ridiculous To The Sublime: Near-death experiences 'explained': Scientists believe it's the last gasp of a dying brain

The mystery of why people 'brought back from the dead' report powerful spiritual experiences may have a biological explanation, according to experts.

Researchers who studied brainwaves of dying patients, found there was a surge of electrical activity in their brains just moments before their lives ended.

The doctors from George Washington University medical centre in Washington believe this surge may be the cause of near-death experiences, where patients see themselves walking towards a bright light or floating outside their bodies.

A Word on 'Oenghus'


Oenghus is the son of the Dagda, ruler of an other-dimensional realm of beings known as the Tuatha de Danaan, a race of beings who were worshipped as gods by the Ancient Celts and Gaels of Western Europe, and Boann, the goddess of the Boyne River of County Meath in Eire (modern Ireland). Boann was the wife of the water-god, Nechtan, who settled Brugh na Boinne after the defeat of the Fomore, the eternal enemies of the Danaans.
As Chieftain of the Tuatha de Danaan, the Dagda sent Nechtan on a day long errand, and in his absence, seduced Boann. Using his mystical powers, the Dagda extended the day to last nine months so that Boann conceived and gave birth to Oenghus in a single day. Oenghus was given to his brother, Mider, to be raised to adulthood, but when Oenghus became an adult, Nechtan gave Brugh na Boinne to Oenghus, possibly seeing him as his only worthy heir.
The Tuatha de Dannan were worshipped as gods throughout Ireland, Britain and Western Europe with the Dagda as King of Eire and Oenghus taking his throne in his absence. However, when the Dagda retired from Earthly rule, he split Eire up among four counties among his sons with Oenghus acquiring Leinster, Mider receiving Connacht, Oghma receiving Ulster and his brother Bodb Derg receiving Munster. Bodb as the eldest son also acquired the title as King of Eire at Meath, kept separate from the other four counties. During the Milesian invasion, the Danaans departed Earth for the realm of Otherworld connected to the Earth's dimension by way of countless sidhs or faerie mounds throughout Eire. Oenghus's sidh was located at Brugh na Boinne.
Oenghus took Derbrenn, the daughter of King Eochaidh Airem of Eire as his wife, but he eventually fell in love with Caer, the daughter of Ethal Anubal and grand-daughter of King Ailill and Medhbha of Connacht. Caer had appeared to him in a vision, and Oenghus turned to his older brother, Bodb, in order to identify and find the mystery woman in the vision. Using his spells, Bodb finally found Caer a year after the dream alongside the bank of a lake in Connacht with her numerous sisters. Oenghus approached Ethal Anubal for the right to court Caer. He learned that Caer was actually a mortal shapeshifter with her sisters, only able to live half a year on Earth in human form and the other half of the year as a swan.
The reason for this spell is unrevealed, but Oenghus learned from King Ailill that the best way to court Caer was to take her as a swan and convince her to remain human. Following his instructions, Oenghus confronted Caer on the Feast of Samhain and followed her into the sky as she turned to a swan, becoming a swan himself. Enchanting a mystical spell to her in song, he finally encouraged her to fly away with him to Brugh na Boinne to live as his wife. After he out-lived her, he took a third wife, Nuamaisi...READ MORE...

Why Isn't BP Under Criminal Investigation?

'Why hasn't the government launched a criminal investigation into BP?

That's the question several former Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials have been asking in the aftermath of the catastrophic explosion aboard the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig last month that killed 11 employees and ruptured a newly drilled well 5,000 feet below the surface and has spewed tens of millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf if Mexico, which now stands as the largest spill in US history.
Like previous BP-related disasters in Alaska and Texas, evidence has emerged that appears to show BP knowingly cut corners on maintenance and safety on Deepwater Horizon's operations, which, according to blogger bmaz, who writes about legal issues at Emptywheel, could amount to criminal violations of the Clean Water Act. Additionally, because people were killed, BP and company officials could also face prosecution for negligent and reckless homicide...Read more:

Inspiration For The Day

You can do anything in this world you want to do, but you must want to do it badly enough.You really can have everything you want, if you go after it. You have to want it. The first and most important ingredient of success is desire. Do you know what you want? Your desire is the planting of your seed. Your desire for success must be so strong within you that it's the very breath of your life.

The 13 Preambles of Wicca - 4: Apply Knowledge

Once you have the knowledge from the learning you need to put it into practical application. Wisdom cannot be spread if people were to hide all of the knowledge that they have attained. This isn’t to say that you need to be pushy, but freely share what you know so that you can learn from someone else what they know. This also talks about the application of knowledge of the Rede as well as the Preambles in your life. Apply them fully and you can experience a life you had never thought was possible to explore.

BP Oil Gusher Threatens 'Total Destruction'

An ominous report by Russia's Ministry of Natural Resources warned of the impending disaster resulting from the British Petroleum (BP) oil and gas leak in the Gulf of Mexico, calling it the worst environmental catastrophe in all of human history, the European Union Times reported.

Russian scientists believe BP is pumping millions of gallons of Corexit 9500, a chemical dispersal agent, under the Gulf of Mexico waters to hide the full extent of the leak, now estimated to be over 2.9 million gallons a day. Experts say Corexit 9500 is a solvent four times more toxic than oil...Read more:

'The Ritual Of The Word'

Under the light of the dying sun,
Before the rising of the horned moon
Enter the visionary ... ancient scribe
Earth walker through numerous mortal lives
Sensing the itching of a web,
the concrete on his face.
Turning to face the mirror
Scrying as ancient artist
Defining the circle and summoning one to answer ...

His mortal body the conduit
A form of earth to raise the fire and share communion with the ancestors
As his druid discipline demands

Later beneath the horned moon
Upon a silvery landscape
Surrounded by the silent stones
Star gazing ... experiencing the consciousness expansion
Aware of the energy spirals of white and black
The dragon lines of the land that eternally ebb and flow
Hands raised
He defies the children of the shadow
He is master to them
He summons the WORD and demands the glamours to abate
He has transcended fear and understands the laws of the universal law
He is connected to all things by the eternal web and has the right to create and destroy at will within his own reality
A reality which merges and absorbs all others
In his the hold of the shadow is over
He can move on ...

Later he watches as his summoning resonates around the sacred stones
His energy of power awakening the shackled earth force
He smiles as he hears its audible resonance ... a familiar sound
A visible light form spins round and round ... moving faster and faster and faster
Changing the vibration within the summoned perimeter
Including he the master ... the mage ... the visionary ... the merlin ... the human
And the world on the outside fades as the sacred space acts as an elevator
A merkabah in which he can visit strange and wondrous vibrations
An immortal right granted to the mortal form who is immortal within
The ritual perfect and pure
The machinery of light springing to life as a well oiled cog in a wheel
A waiting muscle now being flexed ... again ...
  
And the visionary ...
He leaves the world of his current time line
And crosses the threshold ... the horizon of space
Seeing beyond the illusion
Viewing the wider picture
Watching thus the game of life on earth and its interactions of which he plays his part
As the angel he looks down on man and observes the lifting of the veils
the time of light of which mankind is now unaware
A memory he will retain when the merkabah returns him
He understands the mechanism of the earth and the passage taken by the unified one of mankind
All is as it is meant to be
The harmonising of the two poles
The waiting of those who have moved on for those who plunge to rescue the shadow
The fallen ones they rescue ... who refuse to let mankind move on to their new forms
who are envious of mankind’s right to exist on higher vibrations ....

He understands and lets the vision fade
It is time then to permit the spiralling light to cease
To return the visionary back to his chosen time
But not before he glimpses his appearance on the other vibrations
His many other forms ...

He sees the multitude and understands
Existence is truly multi-dimensional
Made of pure light ... pure thought
Thoughts seek a consciousness
Thoughts remain eternal
Attracting like to like
Light bipolar ... interactions creating form
to explore each and every interaction

The high vibration slowing
His consciousness returning
Demanding the word to remain
The spell to break the glamours
May the word remain with him throughout his life on this time zone
And the word was ......

The power of the light over dark
Be the name and understand
For the word is god and god is the word
Be you and be god
God is within you and all things
Let this realisation break the shackles which create the shadows that bind the soul.

Each moment that we are alive we are learning and experiencing things. It is the knowledge that we get from experience and study that allows us to make choices in life as well as live our lives to the best and fullest that we are capable of.

Introduction to the Secret Language

Symbols are hot these days. The massive, unprecedented success of a thriller about ancient codes and secret societies has made symbolism a national obsession. Just a few short years ago, these pursuits were of interest only to academics and white-knuckled conspiracy enthusiasts. But then one little novel opened up a door into a secret world, and introduced ordinary folks to a universal language that is thousands of years old. The cat is now out of the bag- for thousands of years prophets, artists, madmen and poets have been speaking to us in a language that is both consistent and predictive. But as conditioned as we are to recognize only the verbal -only the literal- we have gone about our business while others have plotted, prayed and postulated right under our noses.In addition to being nearly invisible to the uninitiated, this language has a profound effect on those who care to learn it.
Somehow, there is some dormant sector of the human brain that is activated when one immerses themselves in the study of symbology. This is particularly true when the language is used for religious or spiritual reasons.
Unlike literal scripture, which is forever pointing to a forever elusive revelation, the immersion into this secret language seems to create its own spiritual reality. Sometimes meditating upon these symbols seems to make them come to life and speak to you in ways you could never express or articulate. And often when you delve into this world of sacred symbology, the symbols take over and tell you things you never thought you would know.But the symbols will escape your notice, or at least your conscious attention, until you are able to decode them. And in order to decode them you must understand where they come from and what those who speak in symbolic language are trying to tell. For there are secret languages and then there is the Secret Language. The science of decoding symbolic language is commonly referred to as Semiotics. (Secret Sun)

A Distant Perspective

Looking out the window while riding in an airplane lends a unique perspective. From high among the clouds, homes and highways appear tiny and toy-like. Suddenly, our crowded and important cities seem like just a small part of a busy universe. According to the Law of Yoga, one of the seven spiritual truths of Hinduism, we can also see our private lives from a new point of view by practicing detachment. By purposefully letting go of the end result of our actions and learning to watch our own thoughts and behavior impartially, we gain new insight into the diverse choices available to us. The goal of detachment is to be able to interact with the world while also watching ourselves, to be both actor and witness at the same time. Those who renounce the desire for an award, according to the Bhagavad-Gita, attain perfect peace. Being overly focused on the outcome of an action actually ties one down, while being detached enough to view the relativity of the situation sets one free and lends tranquility. Being detached does not mean that one can't enjoy anything or anyone. It just refers to the fact that clinging very strongly to a person, a thought pattern or an emotional habit makes it difficult to cope with life. We begin to think that if we don't get a specific job or have a certain relationship, we will be miserable. Being detached means saying that if we achieve a certain goal, we will be fine and if for some reason we don't, we will still be fine. A Buddhist saying describes detachment as "Not flattered by praise, not hurt by blame." Once we are able to detach ourselves from difficulty, we gain a broad perspective and a multiplicity of possibilities become apparent. Many solutions that we would never have considered when we were emotionally drowning in the problem now appear. When you are faced with a particularly trying personal problem, try taking some time to consciously detach yourself. Meditation, listening to calming music and taking a long walk are all possible detachment rituals. Traveling to another location either actually or through a favorite book or film are also good ways of finding a new perspective. When you let go of your limited view and gain greater objectivity, you put the law of Yoga into practice. You open the door to greater intuition and increased serenity.

How many people do you know that are fully aware of their religion? I’m not just talking about what their places of worship teach them, or what their holy book says. I am talking a full understanding from the conception of the religion to the modern day interpretations of it. Chances are that you do not know many. People tend to follow the teachings that they hear but do not look further into their religion as a whole, unless of course they have a degree in Theology that is. This article talks about having the full knowledge of what your religion is about. Wicca, like most religions is much deeper than the surface information that we are all aware of. It has tradition, it has its guiding forces and it has its incarnation. I know a lot of people that claim to be Wiccan or Pagan and yet have never read or studied the origins of the religion. How are you going to gain a deeper understanding and spiritual awareness if you do not know where you came from to start with? Know your Craft is just that, it is attaining the wisdom and knowledge of your religion. (New Age Articles)

The Ace of Swords

As a Suit, Swords are about thought, communication, and, sadly, often also about conflict and emotional turmoil. People often become confused about why that should be - this Suit contains more 'bad' cards than any of the others. But when you consider that one thing which inevitably happens when we are hurt and unhappy is that objectivity and clarity go out of the window, you might be able to understand why so many harsh cards turn up here.

Aces are always about the beginning of something - usually related to the Suit they are from. From that you can see that the Ace of Swords is about the ability to see things from a clear perspective. When this card rules, we are able to cut away the rubbish and confusion which tends to cloud out major issues. We can see what is important and worth fighting for. And we can also identify the red herrings that keep us from seeing clearly.

We become more able to make good decisions, more ready to see other points of view, more clear about what we really think about things. When this happens we often choose totally new directions for ourselves, reaching a point where we can transform and empower our experiences.

So when this card comes up in a reading, or to rule a day, then it means that we need to step back, and think rationally about everything which crosses our path. We need to cut away rubbish and clutter, so we can see the inner truth we seek.

There is a decisive and powerful energy which flows from this card, and engaging with it will allow us to understand ourselves, and others more thoroughly than before.

In a spiritual sense the appearance of the Ace of Swords will often mark a turning point or breakthrough into new clarity and wisdom. (Angel Paths)

The 13 Preambles of Wicca - 1: Know yourself

Self knowledge and awareness is something that we all strive to have. How are we going to work with the delicate energies that surround us if we first do not know what is self? This is a difficult one to achieve as there are still so many things out in our world that do not allow us to fully express ourselves as individuals that are aware and filled with love of the self. Once you come to a full understanding of who you are then it becomes easier to accept others for who they are as well. This acceptance becomes one of the first paths to peace. This is not only knowing the self, but accepting the self as well both must be achieved. (New Age Articles)

The Saga Of The Spheres Of Blue

The story must begin in ages past; long before the time warp and the birth of soulless men
There existed magical races on a young planet; races which narrated histories have long forgotten
Races legends suggest and myths romanticise; golden eras that so few of men even gain a hint of
A powerful time when thoughts created and destroyed on a whim all manner of visitations ...
It was a time of formlessness and freedom; when the gods turned a blind eye
When man was but a figment in the mind of one of the many perversions
A universe in its infancy; an age when no being had fully discovered ‘experience’
or had the slight to gain understanding or wisdom ...
There was no good; there was no evil
For those thoughts had not yet manifested
Somewhere within this age an etheric race was born,
Shapeshifters with the innate ability to move between translucent appearance
to others more ‘solid’ more substantial
for they had explored the realms much further than most
and had gleaned the structures of what was to come
for they had discovered the terms oracle and mystic
and had devised these thoughts to gain insights into others
First, these new thoughts were put to good use
Sympathetic magic and wondrous healing
Balancing the perversions which were numerous in these cess pit worlds
But then this good was challenged with its natural opposite
and the first wars between black and white were born ...
Here in these hellish mires one current ‘mortal’ was born
An ageless spectre who only now discovers his origin; his ungodly birthplace
for within these ‘physical’ universes the eyes of the creator gods never gazed
for these were the by products of all the high order experimentation ...
But, with the prime law of the universe stating that energy cannot be destroyed
that all energy has the right to consciousness,
these raw products evolved and gained an awareness ...
From this soup he was born
and he was not alone
For there were many,
and somewhere within the struggles he and the many became separated
the many never forgot, but through this separation he lost that objective ...

'Doing To Others ... What's Been Done To Us"


'It is pretty stunning when you just replace the DNA software in a cell and the cell instantly starts reading that new software and starts making a whole new set of proteins, and within a short while all the characteristics of the first species disappear and a new species emerges. That's a pretty important change in how we approach and think about life.'

He would not have realised it, but that is one key way the Reptilian geneticists changed the human species, switched off access to most of our brain capacity, the overwhelming majority of our DNA potential (hence the so-called ‘junk’ DNA that appears to have no function), and tuned the body-computer into the Moon Matrix, the Reptilian hive mind.
They gave the body new ‘software’ (information) to read – ‘you just replace the DNA software in a cell and the cell instantly starts reading that new software and starts making a whole new set of proteins, and within a short while all the characteristics of the first species disappear and a new species emerges.’
They changed the computer code that the body-computer was reading and thus changed what appeared on the ‘screen’ – the human form. (David Icke)

Begetting Change

Repeated bouts of adversity are an unavoidable aspect of human existence. We battle against our inner struggles or outer world forces, and in many cases, we emerge on the opposite side of struggle stronger and better equipped to cope with the challenges yet to come. However, we can occasionally encounter trials that seem utterly hopeless. We strike at them with all of our creativity and perseverance, hoping desperately to bring about change, only to meet with the same results as always. Our first instinct in such situations is often to push harder against the seemingly immovable obstruction before us, assuming that this time we will be met with a different outcome. But staying power and stamina net us little when the same choices consistently garner the same results. A change in perspective, behavior, or response can do so much more to help us move past points where no amount of effort seems sufficient to overcome the difficulties before us. Whether our intention is to change ourselves or some element of the world around us, we cannot simply wish for transformation or hope that our lives will be altered through circumstance. If our patterns of thought and behavior remain unchanged, our lives will continue to unfold much as they have previously. Patterns in which fruitless efforts prevail can be overcome with self examination and courage. It is our bravery that allows us to question the choices we have made thus far and to channel our effort into innovation. Asking questions and making small adjustments to your thought processes and behaviors will help you discover what works, so you can leave that which does not work behind you. To break free from those unconscious patterns that have long held sway over your actions and reactions, you will likely have to challenge your assumptions on a most basic level. You must accept once and for all that your beliefs with regard to cause and effect may no longer be in accordance with your needs. Stagnation is often a sign that great changes are on the horizon. Courting the change you wish to see in yourself and in the world around you is a matter of acknowledging that only change begets change. The results you so ardently want to realize are well within the realm of possibility, and you need only step away from the well-worn circular path to explore the untried paths that lie beyond it.

MSM Writer Slams Swine Flu Hype

'Good on ordinary Torontonians. Despite all the H1N1/swine flu hype this past winter, just 28.2% of that city’s residents bothered to get vaccinated against the “pandemic;” that’s less than the 35% who usually get shots each year against the seasonal flu. Even Toronto health care workers couldn’t be stampeded into getting the shots. Only 60% of them bothered.

Barbara Yaffe, head of communicable disease control for the Toronto Board of Health, proclaimed herself reasonably satisfied with the public’s response. But how can she be? Given the $1-billion+ spent by Ottawa on the swine flu hysteria (which probably climbs to $2 billion or more when provincial and municipal campaigns are added in), a 28% vaccination rate is awful if your aim is to have as many people immunized as possible. The 35% rate most winters is achieved at a fraction of the expense and public calamity. So hear, hear to those who resisted the madness that was the Great 2009-10 Swine Flu Pandemic...Read more:

We observe you, we witness your pursuit of understanding,
your struggles to overcome the shackles of the demons released from the continuum
They who despise you, for it was you who banished them
and then it was you who unwittingly set them free ...
We see your light, they see your light
We come to aid a fellow luminaire, to assist in the programming
To aid in the upgrade of the coding within the master design,
You are within and we are without ...
Once it was written, so now it must be done
For an ancient name reported the intention
and into the realms of the continuum it was despatched
in order for that desire, that insight to become physical reality
It has to be so ... we send forth that certainty now ...
Sense please our struggle to convert to your lesser understanding
We speak in the universal language of light
Your chronicle be a slower, more difficult communicade ....
It is limited, we waste time making this conversion
Why canst ye not adopt the languages of the ancients?
The languages ye once had mastery of; hast ye already forgotten?
We project directly into thy mind ...
So ye canst report that which ye see, that which ye know
Use thus thy own understanding to embellish this lowly report ....

For that is the answer why; I now gain the understanding
They observe me; they merge with me
and I didn’t hear them, and they failed to hear me
For they expected me to communicate in the language of the ancients ....
They hang over me in a Merkabah ... I am contained within that structure,
It appears invisible on this plane
I heard and I sensed and now I know
The Book Of Knowledge confirms ...
With their light vehicle they probe space to find and communicate with ones like I,
I am a Meoroth, and I exist within a dark region of space ...
This local universe is hidden in the shadow of the central sun ...
In truth I sense I have never left that structure
All of my human ‘lives’ are spent in that safety
They converse with me, through me
I converse with they, I remain a part of they
and the demons have forced me to forget this connection
and have deceived me into thinking I am so alone ...
I am not, and I never have ...
and the voices of the others are constant; I hear them in the distant corners of my mind
and when I permit their impressions to come forward
their voices adopt the sound of my own thoughts
they merge perfectly, telepathically, direct communication ...
 
I am not alone ...

A Word on 'The Human Aura'

The human aura is an invisible field that surrounds and penetrates the physical body that along with the Chakra system, Meridians and Nadis supplies our physical body with the Universal Life Force Energy. This energetic aspect of our self can sometimes be seen by some clairvoyants and healers, who may see different colours in the energy field around a person.

The human aura briefly consists of various layers of energy, which are vibrating at different rates, the closest level to the physical body the Etheric Level being the densest vibration.

The first level closest to the body being the Etheric Body, the slowest vibrating of the seven layers. This layer is considered as the blue print of the physical body, and it is on this level that that you experience feeling when you have lost a limb, but can still feel it, this is called a phantom limb, as on the etheric level you body is still whole. This level is also connected our senses and sensations, touch, tasting, smell, listening, seeing feeling etc.

If the energy is week or damaged on this level, they may experience a weakness or even early symptoms of dis-ease, you may not function well physically, eg. Hate any form of physical activity, you may love to eat, but hate to be touched. If this level of the Aura is strong and well charged, then you will have a full life in all areas.

The second level of the aura is associated with our feelings or emotions about the self and is known as the lower emotional body. The energy movement there correlates to the feeling you are having about yourself. If you allow your feelings to flow whether positive or negative, the aura will keep itself balanced, the negative energy being released and transformed.

If you stop yourself experiencing these emotions, block them, swallow them back down, in other words keeping the British stiff upper lip, then you stop that flow of energy on the second level connected to the emotions.

The second layer of the human aura is the lower emotional body.

The third level of the aura is associated with our mental or rational world and is known as the lower mental body. When this level is balanced the rational and intuitive mind work together in harmony as one, we then experience clarity, balance and a sense of appropriateness. We feel self accepting, safe and have a sense of personal power.

If this level is strong and charged you will have a strong clear mind that serves you well. You will have an active and healthy mental life and be interested in learning.

If this level is weak and undercharged, you will lack mental agility or clarity. You will probably not be interested in academics or other intellectual pursuits. When our thoughts are negative in this level, the energy will travel slower and become darker and distorted. These are negative thought forms that correspond to our habitual negative thought processes. They are difficult to change, because they appear to be logical to the person experiencing them.


These negative thought forms can also be affected by stagnated emotions from the second and fourth levels of the aura, which are adjacent it the third level. In other words we try not to feel negative emotions about our self (second level) and or about another person (forth level). We stop the energy flow on the second and fourth levels. This then caused the third level energy to become distorted also....READ MORE...

Space junk threatens 'chain reaction' that could destroy communications on Earth


There is so much junk whizzing around Earth that any collision in space could now cause a knock-on effect that would destroy vital satellites, according to a Pentagon report.
A crash between a satellite and a hunk of space junk could send thousands of pieces of debris spinning out, which could destroy other satellites.
Television signals, weather forecasts, global-positioning navigation and international phone connections are just some of the services at risk. The uncontrolled chain reaction could make some orbits unusable for both commercial or military satellites, according to the U.S Space Posture Review sent to Congress in March.
The report, which has not been publicly released, said space is 'increasingly congested and contested.' (Daily Mail)

What’s At The Heart Of Divination


Divination is also referred to as fortune telling. Divination uses aspects of the supernatural to predict the future or give insight. There are many different forms of divination. Divination usually involves a ritual or other formal routine. This could involve the lighting of candles, chanting of incantations or burning of incense. Divination is a way to connect with the other side, which could be those who have passed away, spirits or holy beings.
Divination is a highly criticized practice. There are many people who believe that divination cannot be proven as real. They believe that since divination usually involves one person connecting with the other side that the person is simply scamming or faking the connection.
Many skeptics believe that divination is merely tapping into the sub-conscious mind and not communicating with the other side at all. Still others believe that there is no connection at all and the person doing the divination is just saying whatever they believe people want to hear. Despite numerous attempts to prove critics wrong, there is still skeptics out there who will never believe in the supernatural abilities of those who practice divination.
Divination may be something that a person is born able to do. For others it is something to be learned. It is widely thought that every person has the ability to tap into the supernatural. It just takes time for some to learn how to do it.Divination has been used for centuries. It is often looked at as evil or as something that is only done by those who do not believe in God. This is not true. Many religious activities often include divination style practices. Anything that brings a connection between a person and a celestial being, be it God, a Saint, an angel, is a form of divination.
Most divination is done in a proper setting. The area used for divination is only used for that purpose. Nothing else is done in that area. Many times there are alters or other things to honoyr the spirits that may be present. It is done in a manner that shows respect to those beings that are coming to help or send messages. For people that practice divination it is a very serious ritual.
Divination is something that requires great patience and dedication. It may take a person a long time in order to connect to a spirit and when they do it can tae even longer to understand the messages they may be sending. It is a process that should be done with the knowledge of how to do it properly. Many times people expect to see amazing things, like lights flickering, the person performing the divination to fall into a trance or something else spectacular. This is usually not how it happens, though. It is usually a rather peaceful process that happens almost naturally. (New Age Articles)

Fellowship with a Purpose

Human beings, by their very nature, love to gather. Yet as much as we crave community, the rigors of real life frequently interfere with our efforts to come together with likeminded individuals. For this reason, fellowship is crucial to humanity's wellbeing now more than ever. Most towns and cities play host to a variety of small groups that allow people to congregate purposefully, but that does not mean we should not consider founding our own. When people with similar interests, ideals, or aspirations come together as a group, a community is built that provides a new dimensionality to our earthly experiences. The formation of a group is like an invitation welcoming all those desiring companionship and camaraderie into a circle of support. You may feel driven to found a group for women, healers, knitters, readers, writers, or political activists. Rules need only be a part of your communal experience if you find that level of organization appealing, and it matters little whether your group is large, goal-oriented, or structured. When you have a firm vision of the group you wish to bring into being, hang posters, reach out to acquaintances, and get in touch with similar groups to attract participants. Groups of likeminded individuals are to some extent inherently exclusionary, being that they serve as a supportive environment in which people who have something in common can gather. Yet such groups can also transcend the boundaries that might otherwise keep people apart, The group you create will likely attract people from many different ethnic, cultural, and spiritual backgrounds, and if you make these individuals feel equally welcome, your group will grow and thrive as a result. Try to ward off any discouragement you feel when those intrigued by your group's purpose are not ready to contribute actively. They are likely waiting to see how it evolves and whether you are truly committed to serving as its heart and soul. If the group you have founded is a positive influence in the life of even a single individual, it is well worth it. Your intention to bring people together will be the seed that develops into a source of nurturance and community that stays true to its purpose long after its initial inception.

Merkaba

Merkaba, also spelled Merkabah, is the divine light vehicle allegedly used by ascended masters to connect with and reach those in tune with the higher realms. "Mer" means Light. "Ka" means Spirit. "Ba" means Body. Mer-Ka-Ba means the spirit/body surrounded by counter-rotating fields of light, (wheels within wheels), spirals of energy as in DNA, which transports spirit/body from one dimension to another.

In modern esoteric teachings, it is taught that the MerKaBa is an interdimensional vehicle consisting of two equally sized, interlocked tetrahedra of light with a common center, where one tetrahedron points up and the other down. This point symmetric form is called a stella octangula or stellated octahedron which can also be obtained by extending the faces of a regular octahedron until they intersect again.

In his books, researcher and physicist Drunvalo Melchizedek describes this figure as a "Star Tetrahedron", since it can be viewed as a three dimensional Star of David. By imagining two superimposed "Star Tetrahedrons" as counterrotating, along with specific "prana" breathing techniques, certain eye movements and mudras, it is taught that one can activate a non-visible 'saucer' shaped energy field around the human body that is anchored at the base of the spine.

Depending on the height of the person doing the exercise, this field is about 55 feet across. Once activated, this 'saucer' shaped field is capable of carrying ones consciousness directly to higher dimensions.
