Anomaly Gallery - Mars Once More

An uncovered martian image with 'obvious' image tampering. Notice the areas of white in this image ... they are obviously not part of this landscape ... so why have these areas of this landscape been whited out (If there is nothing of any significance on Mars?) .....

Like A Beacon

I wander the forest trail alone despite the warnings from those desperate people
The god fearing closed minds who rarely see beyond their own toes
who are adamant only theirs is the path that leads to enlightenment
Such tiny beings have expressed their views on me
and I only swat them like I would a fly.......

As I walk I see their puny talismans and hear their forbiddings in the air
tiny and oh so insignificant; no god will be troubled by those scant whispers
I walk with the wind around me; I walk with my energies fluttering around me
The god fearing term my manner that of the madly insane
I wander with my highest immortal leading me by the hand
Shining my light like a beacon so the others will see me
and I am no longer alone ...

POM Wonderful Under Attack by FTC Over Truthful Health Claims

'The FTC has never met a natural product it didn't want to destroy, it seems. They've gone after all sorts of natural foods like cherries, threatening to put companies out of business if they told the truth about the nutritional benefits of their products. They've even tried to criminalize a ministry that seeks to help its followers heal through the natural power of medicine herbs.

The FTC also went after Dr. Weil, threatening his company for telling the truth about his immune-boosting supplements. Dr. Weil's company, by the way, quickly "complied" and removed the truthful nutritional knowledge from its website to avoid being prosecuted....Read more:

Warning to Parents: Vaccination Increases the Risk of Contracting Diseases

'It's now clear that the information the government has been giving out on vaccination is misleading at best. They are in fact urging parents to expose their children to risks they could easily avoid while unconstitutionally trying to stop parents from knowing about safe means of keeping their families well. In addition, the FDA, with its own scientists have warned about its corruption, is now arguing in court that people have no fundamental right to their health.

In one thoughtful, thorough article by a mother trying to decide what to do for her own children, parents (and everyone else) have a chance to rethink the reality of vaccines....Read more:

Bear Totem Animal

To American Indians, the Bear has a strong heart and unwavering will, and to Japanese and Siberian Shamans he is the leader of the animals, the animal that taught humans Shamanism.

 The bear is a symbol of invincibility, offering a secure refuge for those who enjoy the company of a totem bear spirit guide. The Shaman of bear power animal has a determined ally in spiritual work, loyal and utterly dependable.

 The bear is an introspective creature, independent and apparently aloof. He has with little need for fraternity, rather he is self-contained and strong-willed. A Bear spirit guide is of great support and comfort to those who crave human company simply for personal reassurance rather than for the simple pleasure of being with friends. He makes lonely periods of life far easier, and can help the Shaman to work in isolation to gain deep insights.

 The bear represents female energies, hibernating to reconnect with the earth each year, and emerging with answers to spiritual dilemmas. Those with a bear spirit guide can harness this natural connection with the earth to seek insights more...

Is this the new Earth? Astronomers discover planet just 20 light years away with similar atmosphere and gravity which has '100% chance of life' - and

The chances that future generations will one day colonise the stars have just got higher.
Astronomers tonight announced the discovery of the most Earth-like planet ever found - a rocky world three times the size of our own world, orbiting a star 20 light years away..
The planet lies in the star's 'Goldilocks zone' - the region in space where conditions are neither too hot or too cold for liquid water to form oceans, lakes and rivers. The planet also appears to have an atmosphere, a gravity like our own and could well be capable of life.
The discovery comes three years after astronomers found a similar, slightly less habitable planet around the same star - described by astronomers as being 'in our backyard' in the Milky Way.
Researchers say the findings suggest the universe is teeming with world like our own.'If these are rare, we shouldn't have found one so quickly and so nearby,' Dr Steven Vogt who led the study at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
'The number of systems with potentially habitable planets is probably on the order of 10 or 20 per cent, and when you multiply that by the hundreds of billions of stars in the Milky Way, that's a large number. There could be tens of billions of these systems in our galaxy.' (Daily Mail)

Image Of The Day

This is the 15,000th post here on A Light In The Darkness since its conception back in November 2006 ... a perfect opportunity to thank each and every visitor to A Light In The Darkness. The original concept was for a library of the paranormal & occult ... a reference blog with material gathered from all over the world wide web. This original intention has been achieved ... and the search for such material continues on a daily basis. The biggest problem is to avoid repetition ... something which hopefully has been achieved. The current affairs & conspiracy theory articles have also continued to be featured ... the latter being articles of an occultic or hidden nature and so relevant for inclusion. There have been 'personal' non-occult additions to A Light In The Darkness .... football and rock music. These are added as a special interest, more for prosperity that anything else. Many of the additions have been instinctive, and it is interesting to note that from time to time we receive e-mails from visitors who find it intriguing that an article has appeared at the time they required information on the self same subject! The format of A Light In The Darkness seems to have slotted into a routine in recent months with similar type articles appearing on a daily basis ... this will be rectified as the web surfing uncovering different subject matter to be included. The intention is not to be stereotyped ... with varied insights and reference material being added to keep the blog content fresh and refreshing. Hopefully, this will be achieved ... only time will tell! Anyway, enough of the self indulgent waffle ... its time to get back to blogging! (Original image - Stonehenge by Matthew James)

Valencia 0 - 1 Man Utd

Javier Hernandez stepped off the bench to get Manchester United's Champions League campaign up and running with a late victory away at Valencia. Hernandez, who moments before struck the post, collected a pass from fellow substitute Federico Macheda and smashed a left-foot shot low into the corner. Valencia had been the better side and Roberto Soldado headed over after Edwin van der Sar flapped at a cross. Dimitar Berbatov forced Cesar Sanchez to save before Hernandez stole victory. It was harsh on La Liga leaders Valencia but they were made to pay for not creating enough chances with the possession they had and being profligate with the ones they did manage to fashion. United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, having set his team up to keep it tight at the back and contain the Spanish side, will be absolutely delighted with the result ahead of two more eminently winnable Group C games against unfancied Turkish team more...

Starting New

There are times in our lives that lend themselves to starting something new. The beginning of a new year, finishing school, leaving a job, or changing homes—these all are times that turn our minds to fresh starts. Their advantage is that they bring with them the energy of that event, creating a tide of change around them that we can ride to our next shoreline. But we can choose to start anew anytime. In any moment we can decide that a bad day or a relationship that’s gotten off on the wrong foot can be started again. It is a mental shift that allows us to clean the slate and approach anything with fresh eyes, and we can make that choice at any time. Starting new is most powerful when we focus our attention to what we are choosing to create. Giving all of our attention to the unwanted aspects of our lives allows what we resist to persist. We need to remember to leave enough room in the process of new beginnings to be kind to ourselves, because it takes time to become accustomed to anything new, no matter how much we like it. There is no need to get down on ourselves if we don’t reach our new goals instantly. Instead, we acknowledge the forward motion and choose to reset and start again, knowing that with each choice we learn, grow, and move forward. Making the choice to start anew has its own energy—it’s a promise made to you. The forward momentum creates a sort of vacuum behind it, pulling toward you all you need to help you continue moving in your chosen direction. Once the journey has begun, it may take unexpected turns, but it never really ends. Like cycles in nature, there are periods of obvious growth and periods of dormancy that signal a time of waiting for the right moment to burst forth. Each time we choose to start anew we dedicate ourselves to becoming the best we are able to be.

Quotes ... for today

"The greatest evil that can befall man is that he should come to think ill of himself." -- Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

"If we don’t forgive ourselves for our mistakes, and others for the wounds they have inflicted upon us, we end up crippled with guilt. And the soul cannot grow under a blanket of guilt, because guilt is isolating, while growth is a gradual process of reconnection to ourselves, to other people, and to a larger whole." -- Joan Borysenko

Cosmic Deception: The Hoaxed Alien Invasion Scenario

'The fake alien invasion operation has been mentioned by numerous NWO writers over the years. I first read of it in Bill Cooper's book, Behold a Pale Horse. Don Croft mentioned in a few of his Adventures Episodes that the not-so-secret inner government had obtained large spacecraft from the B-Sirians for the purpose of staging the phony alien invasion scene. Red Elk cautioned against the idea of allowing yourself to be beamed up into alien spacecraft when things get rough. I'm afraid that a lot of people will think that this is the Rapture. In fact, the incessant preaching about the coming Rapture may have been a set up to prepare them for this. I don't know for certain, but according to Red Elk, it's not going to be exactly heaven where those people wind up. Bear in mind the larger game: the inner government. had made a secret deal with negative alien groups in 1947 which was formalized in a written treaty in 1954 under Eisenhower. The agenda has grown more negative and destructive as the years rolled on. The Illuminati wants to reduce the world's population down to 400-500 million. The negative aliens, on the other hand, want to take over this planet completely and use it as a stargate jump off point into other dimensions to extend their empire.'

Big Sister Tries To Force Body Scanners On Other Countries Amidst Backlash

'Amidst a global backlash against naked airport body scanners, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is attempting to corral 190 nations into signing a binding agreement that will force them to adopt the increasingly unpopular devices which have been slammed on both health and privacy grounds.

“Napolitano will make her pitch in Montreal to the International Civil Aviation Organization, a United Nations arm that sets global aviation standards. The nearly 200 nations that make up ICAO will agree Wednesday to improve aviation security through better technology and more sharing of information about terrorist threats, ICAO Secretary General Raymond Benjamin said in an interview,” reports USA Today.

Napolitano is still trying to flog a dead horse in using the Christmas Day underwear bomber as a boogeyman with which to scare other countries into adopting the body scanners, despite the fact that the devices wouldn’t even have stopped Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab from passing through security screening....Read more:

A Bane Lost

A scar of an ancient land
its sky line forgotten; a landscape which is paranoid delusional ... surely?
For nobody else sees the same
nor hears the cry for help; the swansong that tells of ancient power ....
A bane lost never to be retrieved; a light which fell into the dark place
and sunk out of trace below the crashing waves,
the shining the magpie seeks in the nest; in the beehive ....

Just For Fun: The Seasiders Vs Liverpool

For what it's worth ... another day, another game. This time The Seasider's visit to Anfield. The last Just For Fun was indeed correct, a late equaliser ... but the final result wasn't predicted, despite the fact it could have been gleaned from the spread. It's still a learning curve ...

.... and so The Seasider's visit to the home of out of sorts Liverpool. Surely, it's The Seasider's third defeat on the trot? Signs are of a storm again, and indications that Torres will run riot (The Knight Of Swords) if he is not contained correctly. Maybe a goal from the Spaniard. A maybe ... IF he can be dealt with correctly, then maybe not.

Let's be brave here .. and extrapolate a result for The Seasiders here. A reversed card seems to be in contrary to a glut of goals ... so its the odd goal or two. Most likely result - 1 v 1 ... IF The Seasiders can be like they were against Newcastle. Otherwise its a 4 v 1 defeat I'm afraid.

UPDATE 5 October 2010
Well. They DID play like they did against Newcastle ... and Torres DID play a key part in the game by being substituted after 10 minutes. The Seasiders DID get a result ... just like the Newcastle game it was a penalty and a wonder strike. The prediction however didn't mention the 2 v 1 win.

Curry powder targets cancer cells resistant to chemotherapy

A common ingredient in curry could help target chemotherapy-resistant cancer cells, scientists said today. Scientists at the University of Leicester have been using curcumin - an extract of root turmeric, commonly used to spice up curries - to target chemo-resistant cells. They hope the ingredient will not only improve the effectiveness of chemotherapy but also reduce the number of chemo-resistant cells, helping to prevent the disease returning. Funded by Hope Against Cancer, researchers at the university's Department of Cancer Studies and Molecular Medicine are using tissue from tumours extracted from patients undergoing surgery. The aim is to use curcumin to target chemo-resistant cells in colorectal tumour tissue.Colorectal cancer accounts for more than 600,000 deaths a year and is the third leading cause of cancer deaths in the western world. Dr Karen Brown, a reader at the university, is the principal investigator of the new research, which is also being led by Dr Lynne Howells, from the university's Chemoprevention and Biomarkers Group. Dr Brown said: 'Following treatment for cancer, small populations of cancer cells often remain which are responsible for disease returning. 'These cells appear to have different properties to the bulk of cells within a tumour, making them resistant to chemotherapy. Previous laboratory research has shown that curcumin, from turmeric, has not only improved the effectiveness of chemotherapy but has also reduced the number of chemo-resistant cells, which has implications in preventing the disease returning. We hope that our work will lead to a better understanding of the mechanisms through which curcumin targets resistant cells in tumours. It should also help us identify those patient populations who are most likely to benefit from curcumin treatment in the future.' Turmeric, part of the ginger family, is best known as an orange/yellow powder used as a spice for curries, but has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. (Daily Mail)

False Beliefs

Many of us have a deep-seated belief that in order to do well in the world, we have to suffer and sacrifice. This commonly held idea stems from a certain mentality, inherited from ancestors who came before us who may have experienced this as true. Beliefs from our own past-life experiences can also make an appearance in this lifetime. This is often the way in which false beliefs take hold and don’t let go, even though they are no longer relevant. We must all live our own lives, in our own time, and learn what is true for us, because very few truths prove valid for all people all the time. Keeping our minds clear of false notions is not an easy task, as it requires us to first know our beliefs. Very often, these beliefs have settled deep in our unconscious minds where they simply sit unquestioned. Nevertheless, they have an effect on our hearts, our minds, and our reality. These beliefs act on us, creating situations and relationships that we regard as fate, when they are, in fact, simply our unconscious minds manifesting in the external world. As a result, we may not even be aware that we are carrying the burden of a poverty mentality, and we may wonder why we are not manifesting abundance, especially if we know we deserve it. If this is the case, it may be time to look deeper within to see if we can discover the obstacle inside ourselves. In order to evolve, it is important that we examine the contents of our minds and hearts and get to the root of what we believe about reality. Generally, our concerns of the moment can be trusted to guide our inquiries. If we are not manifesting and maintaining the abundance we know we deserve, then this issue is calling us to look into the hidden corners of our psyches and root out any remaining beliefs that tell us we must suffer and sacrifice in order to do well. Our efforts will take us one more step away from this energy-sapping belief that we no longer need.

The Four of Swords

The Lord of Truce marks a period where we are able to rest and recover, after a difficult time in our lives. It will appear after trauma - the breakdown of a relationship; a troublesome and worrying time financially; an operation or major illness. There will always have been conflict and stress beforehand, this card marks the kind of breathing space we often need in order to clarify our view of the situation, to gather our strength and to decide how best to move forward. When this card appears in a reading, the first thing it tells us is that it is time to rest, time to stop worrying about the things that have happened. However, it must be noted that Truce is not peace. This is a respite - a down time in which we can catch our breath, ease our tension and relax for a brief time. But once that has been done, we need to recognise that there is still more to be done - the battle isn't over yet. So when acting under the influence of this card, bear in mind that first you must take it easy, but then you must begin to plan your next step. If we fail to do that, then when the effect of the Lord of Truce passes away, we shall be left high and dry, with no route planned for our future. And in that case the turmoil which preceded this card may well manifest again. Sometimes, when the card comes up with a 'person' card, it indicates that a rift can begin to be mended between two people who have been at loggerheads previously. In this case, again, it is important to stress that this card does not indicate peace - as before, much more work will need to be done before the damage is entirely healed. We need to be on our guard, too, for other people running personal agendas which may mean that the 'truce' is more convenient than sincere. (Angel Paths)

Inner Hierarchy

Most of us were born and raised in cultures that value the head over the heart and, as a result, we place our own hearts below our heads in a sort of inner hierarchy of which we may not be conscious. What this means is that we tend to listen and respond from the neck up, often leaving the rest of our bodies with little or no say in most matters. This is a physical habit, which sometimes feels as ingrained as the way we breathe or walk. However, with effort and awareness, we can shift the energy into our hearts, listening and responding from this much deeper, more resonant place. The brain has a masterful way of imposing structure and order on the world, creating divisions and categories, devising plans and strategies. In many ways, we have our brains to thank for our survival on this planet. However, as is so clear at this time, we also need the wisdom of our hearts if we wish to continue surviving in a viable way. When we listen from our heart, the logical grid of the brain tends to soften and melt, which enables us to perceive the interconnectedness beneath the divisions and categories we use to organize the world. We begin to understand that just as the heart underlies the brain, this interconnectedness underlies everything. Many agree that this is the most important work we can do at this time in history, and there are many practices at our disposal. For a simple start, try sitting with a friend and asking him to tell you about his life at this moment. For 10 minutes or more, try to listen without responding verbally, offering suggestions, or brainstorming solutions. Instead, breathe into your heart and your belly, listening and feeling instead of thinking. When you do this, you may find that it’s much more difficult to offer advice and much easier to identify with the feelings your friend is sharing. You may also find that your friend opens up more, goes deeper, and feels he has really been heard. If you also feel great warmth and compassion, almost as if you are seeing your friend for the first time, then you will know that you have begun to tap the power of listening with your heart.

'We saw a bright glowing object like an eye': U.S. airman's startling testimony about UFO encounter near UK nuclear base

An ex-U.S. air force chief has given an astonishing account of an encounter with a UFO at an air force base in Suffolk. Charles Halt is one of a number of senior former airmen who went public today over claims that UFOs had tampered with nuclear missiles in the U.S. and the UK. Mr Halt, who retired in 1991, told a press conference that he was working at RAF Bentwater near Rendelsham in Suffolk in 1980 when he had the terrifying encounter. He said that early one morning in December 1980 several of his base's security forces saw lights in the forest near Woodbridge. Two patrolman were sent out to approach the craft which they described as 'triangular, dark metallic in appearance', Mr Halt said. It quickly and silently 'vanished at high speed'. A few weeks later Mr Halt was told by his boss that the lights were back and so he went back out into the forest with a couple of policeman, a camera and a cassette recorder. At the site he saw 'indentations of around six to eight feet wide' and increased levels of radiation as well as broken branches on the trees. Mr Halt said: 'Milling around, one of the individuals saw a bright glowing object like an eye. It would appear to be winking and was shedding molten metal and silently moving through the trees and at one point it actually approached us.' He said that the object then exploded into five white objects which became visible in the sky. They were brightly coloured changing from elliptical to round as if they were moving at very high speed. 'Suddenly one of the objects sent a concentrated beam at the feet of the terrified men. 'Was this a warning? An attempt to communicate? A weapon? Then just as suddenly as it appeared, it disappeared,' he said. The entire incident was categorised as a British affair because it had happened off base, Mr Halt said. (Daily Mail)

DECEPTION WARNING:Could a daily vitamin pill cause skin cancer? Scientists fear it could speed up tumour growth

Millions of people who take daily vitamin pills could be putting themselves at risk of the deadliest form of skin cancer. Research has revealed that supplements containing antioxidants and minerals appear to increase the chances of developing a malignant melanoma. Volunteers given pills containing vitamin E, ascorbic acid, beta-carotene, selenium and zinc were four times more likely to get cancer than those who took dummy pills. The findings come from a follow-up study to one in 2007, which revealed the risks to vitamin-pill poppers. The results of that research, by French scientists, showed that out of 13,000 adults, those who took daily supplements to stay healthy were at much higher risk of skin cancer. To double-check their findings, the same team monitored patients for several more years. These results, published in the latest European Journal of Cancer Prevention, confirm that the increased risk virtually disappeared once patients stopped daily supplements. Now scientists behind the research, carried out at the National Centre for Rare Skin Diseases in Bordeaux, are calling for those most at risk of skin cancer – fair-skinned types or those with a history of excessive sun exposure – to steer clear of supplements.(Daily Mail)

Buddhist Inspiration ..

Both mindfulness and discriminative alertness are needed in responding to sensory input of the three types--attractive, unattractive and neutral. Once again, in this tradition mindfulness does not mean simply to witness. It is a more discriminative kind of thing. You are asking yourself, "What is my response?" and then actively responding by applying the antidotes to attachment and hostility. The word mindfulness is a little bit different in different contexts. Here, Mindfulness refers to the mental faculty of being able to maintain continuity of awareness of an object. Vigilance is concerned with the quality of mind, watching to see, for example, if the mind is veering off to other objects --- Gen Lamrimpa (Ven.

The brain scans that prove couples share a ‘sixth sense’

Ever had the feeling that your partner has the power to read your mind? Well you may not be imagining it. Scientists have found that some couples are so in tune that their brains begin to work in sync. In research that points to the existence of a ‘sixth sense’, the team found identical patterns of brain activity in volunteers who had become so close they were ‘physiologically aligned’. That means they had reached a state in which their nervous systems were ticking over in harmony, helping them to know each other’s thoughts and emotions. The extraordinary findings emerged from an analysis of brain activity in patients and counsellors in therapy sessions. The researchers involved believe it also sheds light on the behaviour of couples, close friends or family members. Psychologists have long known that some couples learn to think like each other – allowing them to ‘know’ what their partner is thinking or about to say. But the new study goes further by looking into the activity of the nervous system. Dr Trisha Stratford, of Sydney’s University of Technology, studied the brains and heartbeats of 30 volunteers during counselling sessions. She identified a crucial moment when the counsellor and patient’s brains started to work in sync in an ‘altered state’. She said: ‘When this happens we can read each other’s brains and bodies at a deeper level – a sixth sense.’
During the ‘altered state’, the part of each person’s brain that controls the nervous system began to beat together. (Daily Mail)

Seeing Ourselves

Many of us do not take the time to notice and acknowledge how beautiful we are as humans. We may be great lovers of beauty, seeing it in the people, places, and things around us, while completely missing it in ourselves. Some of us feel that it is vain to consider our appearance too much, or we may find that when we look at ourselves, all we see are imperfections. Often we come to the mirror with expectations and preconceived notions about beauty that blind us from seeing ourselves clearly. As a result, we miss the beauty that is closest to us, the beauty we are. Sometimes we see our beauty in a shallow way, noticing how well we are conforming to social norms, but failing to see the deeper beauty that shines out from within and that will continue to shine regardless of how we measure up to society’s ideal. If we can cut through all these obstacles and simply appreciate how beautiful we are, we free up so much energy. We also become less dependent upon the opinions and feedback of others since we become our own greatest admirers. Many of us know that after a great yoga practice or a long, deep meditation, we are more able to see how beautiful we are. This is because we have released some of our baggage, thus unburdening ourselves and summoning forth the spirit that dwells within us. It is the heady combination of the divine spirit and the human body that conveys beauty more accurately than anything else. To keep ourselves in touch with our own beauty, we can surround ourselves with images that reflect our beauty back to us—photos of a relative or child who has our eyes, images of teachers who embody spirit, or self-portraits that capture our essence in a way that allows us to see ourselves anew. The best way to keep ourselves in touch with our own beauty is to keep looking deeply into our own souls and opening our eyes to the human being we see in the mirror every day.

The $93,000 a Year Cancer Drug: Big Pharma's Grotesque Profits From Human Suffering

'Cancer patients, brace yourselves. Many new drug treatments cost nearly $100,000 a year, sparking fresh debate about how much a few months more of life is worth.

The latest is Provenge, a first-of-a-kind therapy approved in April. It costs $93,000 and adds four months' survival, on average, for men with incurable prostate tumors. Bob Svensson is honest about why he got it: insurance paid. "I would not spend that money," because the benefit doesn't seem worth it, says Svensson, 80, a former corporate finance officer from Bedford, Mass...Read more:

The Battleground of the Astral Plane

Let the disciple seize hold of the tail of the serpent of wisdom, and having with firmness grasped it, let him follow it into the deepest center of the Hall of Wisdom. Let him not be betrayed into the trap set for him by the serpent of illusion, but let him shut his eyes to the colorful tracery upon its back, and his ears to the melody of its voice. Let him discern the jewel, set in the forehead of the serpent whose tail he holds, and by its radiance traverse the miry halls of maya.

No glamour, no illusion can long hold the man who has set himself the task of treading the razor-edged Path which leads through the wilderness, through the thickset forest, through the deep waters of sorrow and distress, through the valley of sacrifice and over the mountains of vision to the gate of Deliverance. He may travel sometimes in the dark (and the illusion of darkness is very real); he may travel sometimes in a light so dazzling and bewildering that he can scarcely see the way ahead; he may know what it is to falter on the Path, and to drop under the fatigue of service and of strife; he may be temporarily sidetracked and wander down the bypaths of ambition, of self-interest and of material enchantment, but the lapse will be but brief. Nothing in heaven or hell, on earth or elsewhere can prevent the progress of the man who has awakened to the illusion, who has glimpsed the reality beyond the glamor of the astral plane, and who has heard, even if only once, the clarion call of his own more...

UFOs 'attacked U.S. nuclear missile sites': Retired Air Force Officers to break their silence

A group of retired U.S. Air Force officers are set to reveal how extraterrestrial visitors have tampered with American nuclear weapons. The six former officers, and one other enlisted man, will break their decades-long silence on the matter at a press conference in Washington on Monday. The men are expected to describe the ongoing and disturbing intervention of UFOs at nuclear weapon sites, including examples of how several missiles inexplicably malfunctioned while unidentified disc-shaped object hovered nearby. Robert Hastings, the author of 'UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites', will host the press conference tomorrow when he will present the evidence and the other veterans who back his claims. In a statement he declared: 'At long last, all of these witnesses are coming forward to say that, as unbelievable as it may seem to some, UFOs have long monitored and sometimes tampered with our nukes.' ICBM launch officer Captain Robert Salas, who will also be present on Monday, claims to have witnessed a UFO incident in 1967 which caused a missile disruption at the Malmstrom Air Base in Montana. He, like the others, claims he was ordered to keep quiet about it. 'The Air Force is lying about the national security implications of unidentified aerial objects at nuclear bases, and we can prove it,' he said. Mr Hastings says the group will discuss the national security implications of the UFOs incidents and will urge U.S. government to come clean on the issue. The UK government have also been accused of covering up the subject, with claims that 30 years ago a UFO directed beams of light into the RAF Bentwaters base in Suffolk - one of the few U.S. military bases in Britain to hold nuclear weapons.

United Nations to appoint space ambassador to act as first contact for aliens visiting Earth

If aliens ever land on Earth there will no longer be any confusion over who will greet them with the news the United Nations is set to appoint an astrophysicist to be their first human contact.
Mazlan Othman is expected to be tasked with coordinating humanity's response to an extraterrestrial visit, if ever required.
The 58-year-old Malaysian will tell a conference next week that with the recent discovery of hundreds of planets orbiting around other stars, the detection of alien life is becoming more and more likely.Ms Othman, currently the head of the UN's Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa), recently told fellow scientists that mankind needed to be ready to deal with alien contact. 'The continued search for extraterrestrial communication, by several entities, sustains the hope that some day human kind will received signals from extraterrestrials,' she said. 'When we do, we should have in place a coordinated response that takes into account all the sensitivities related to the subject. The UN is a ready-made mechanism for such coordination.

Lethal Danger of CT Scans

'The uninformed public is in for a shocker. A study released at the end of last year reveals that CT scans deliver up to four times more radiation than what was previously believed, which was already dangerously high. At the same time, another study led by the National Cancer Institute showed that CT scans administered in the year 2007 alone may contribute to 29,000 new cancer cases and nearly 15,000 cancer deaths.

The problem is that the explosion in unnecessary CT scans has been going on every year. If we carry this back just ten years, this means that 150,000 Americans are facing horrific deaths from CT scan-induced cancers...Read more:

Finding The Gift

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.

MI5 Warns Britain Facing Double Terrorism Threat

'MI5 today announced there was a "strong possibility" of an attack on the British mainland by dissident Irish republican terrorists, in addition to the continuing risk of al-Qaida-inspired terrorism. The Guardian has learned of three reasons that have led the domestic intelligence agency to raise the threat level from moderate to substantial.

There is growing concern over the sophistication of attacks being carried out in Northern Ireland. Second, bomb makers with expertise gained from the long Provisional IRA campaign of violence are believed to be now helping dissident republican terrorists. And the capability of the dissidents to stage attacks is thought to be nearly as dangerous as was that of the Provisional IRA.

Today's announcement by the home secretary, Theresa May, means MI5 believes the threat is at its highest for at least a decade. Security officials are combating this threat, plus what is assessed to be the greater threat from al-Qaida-inspired terrorists, who remain "highly likely" to stage an attack...Read more:

Who Or What Are The Shadow People?

Shadow People, also known as Shadow Folk, or Shadow Beings, are usually attracted to one person or location for unknown reasons. Often they are seen as dark silhouettes of human-shape, generally male, that prefer to watch someone unseen and flee the moment they are noticed. Still this doesn't always fit the experience. While some people distinctly see a shadowy human form others have dexcribed shapeless wispy black blobs and swirling columns of dark smoke.The personalities or characteristics of shadow people range greatly from shy and skittish to downright nasty and malevelent, with a few witnesses describing them as the ultimate essence of pure evil. Accounts of shadow people have been reported all over the world. There has been an increase of reported sightings of these creatures within the last five to ten years, though there is anectdotal evidence of these creatures appearing before human witnesses through out our history.Reports of shadow people are in many respects different from accounts of ghosts. Ghosts are said to be the disembodied spirits of deceased people and are usually said to take on the appearance and characteristics of human beings. Orbs of light, ectoplasm and glowing mists have also been associated with ghost sightings. None of which is common he occurance of shadow people. Although many accounts describe shadow beings as having human-like form, they are generally not described as resembling actual individuals , living or deceased. It is unheard of in my experience that shadow people ever communicate verbally with witnesses. Feelings of dread, intense fear or panic and paralysis have been ascribed to the expereince of wtnessing a shadow person.The more consistent accounts of shadow people typically describe a feeling of dread associated with the presence of this phenomena, and animals are said to react to the phenomena with fear and hostility. Shadow Beings are said to move extremely fast and travel through solid matter. They typically are said to have no discernible features such as mouths, noses, or eyes. Their forms are usually described as somewhat thin or smoke-like.... read more...

Zionist Puppet Obama Condemns Truth About 9/11 As 'Hateful' And 'Offensive', Which, Given He Is A Genetic Liar, Is Quite Understandable

'US President Barack Obama has described as "hateful" and "offensive" the claim by Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that most people believe the US government was behind the 9/11 attacks. Mr Obama was speaking exclusively to BBC Persian television, which broadcasts to Iran and Afghanistan.

Mr Ahmadinejad's speech at the UN General Assembly on Thursday triggered a walkout. He later defended his remarks and called for an inquiry into the attacks. "I did not pass judgment, but don't you feel that the time has come to have a fact-finding committee?" Mr Ahmadinejad told reporters on Friday.

"The fact-finding mission can shed light on who the perpetrators were, who is al-Qaeda... where does it exist? Who was it backed by and supported? All these should come to light"...Read more:

'The Trojan Horse'???

Insights suggest a 'trojan horse' scenario being undertaken in and around the disappearance of MM. However, it is not possible to glean if any of the infamous 'tapas' group were aware of the subterfuge around the situation. It appears there was the means to create a cover in order for investigative attention to be brought to certain places. It could only be enabled by the abduction of a young child and the investigative steps that followed. Therefore the abduction of MM will have taken place ... but how deep did the subterfuge have to penetrate a web which had been cast around that part of the world? If the tapas group were aware of the trojan horse dimension of the situation ... did any of them know that one of their children was going to be taken? Investigations were led to certain areas, but insights suggest they were really looking for evidence of someone else. On the outside it had to appear that MM had been taken. The instigators of the original crime, which was the real focus of the trojan horse, had to be fooled by the situation so as not to raise any suspicions. Hence the reaction of the PJ ... and the Portuguese press that took place ... as someone seems to have discovered the trojan horse and went about taking evasive actions. Somewhere the situation appears to have not gone to plan. The question is ... if MM was intentionally abducted to make the trojan horse appear real ... where is she now? Who has MM .... ?? Early insights indicated her safety at a 'safe house' and her borrowing ... insights in recent times do not contradict these early findings. There is a confirmation she is still very much alive ... the timing of her safe return to her parents is when? (Copyright Matthew James 25th September 2010)

Ancient Egyptian Alchemy

Ancient Egyptians were into all types of magic and astrology. They considered alchemy a science, perhaps the science of immortality eternal life. Alchemy as a transition metal both physical and metaphysical would take many turns in the millennia that would follow. Transition metals turning base metals into gold and alchemy of consciousness moving from physical reality to that of higher frequency. The roots of alchemy date back to an ancient Egypt document called The Emerald Tablet Of Thoth. In Greece Thoth was known as Hermes the Magician ....Hermes Trismegistus ... which is thought to be the foundation of alchemy. Thoth stated, 'As is Above, So is Below', the duality of our experience in third dimension.

Age & Time

Scientists have known for decades that time passes faster at higher elevations a curious aspect of Einstein's theories of relativity that previously has been measured by comparing clocks on the Earth's surface and a high-flying rocket. NIST physicists compared a pair of the world's best atomic clocks to demonstrate that you age faster when you stand just a couple of steps higher on a staircase.
Now, physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have measured this effect at a more down-to-earth scale of 33 centimeters, or about 1 foot, demonstrating, for instance, that you age faster when you stand a couple of steps higher on a staircase. Described in the Sept. 24 issue of Science,* the difference is much too small for humans to perceive directly -adding up to approximately 90 billionths of a second over a 79-year lifetime - but may provide practical applications in geophysics and other fields. Similarly, the NIST researchers observed another aspect of relativity that time passes more slowly when you move faster at speeds comparable to a car traveling about 20 miles per hour, a more comprehensible scale than previous measurements made using jet more...

My spirit lives on ... I state this with certainty
I can recall now the other world in flashes of recollection
into the soil the machine goes to ground
but the spirit soars ... formless in the physical world

yet once it reaches its true dimension
it cloaks its light with another recognisable form
One of many ... multi-dimensional ...

How 70% of New Zealand lamb imports to Britain are halal... but this is NOT put on the label

More than 70 per cent of the New Zealand lamb sold in Britain comes from halal slaughterhouses without the fact being declared on the label. All the slaughtermen in these establishments must be Muslim and say a prayer when making the cut across the animal’s throat which kills it. The New Zealand meat industry has taken the step to ensure its lamb can be sold in Muslim markets round the world. It emerged last week that British restaurant chains and venues such as Wembley and Ascot are serving up different types of halal meat without telling customers. In conventional slaughterhouses, animals are stunned before they are killed by having their throats cut. However, in most Muslim countries, halal means the animals must not be stunned first. The trade body Beef & Lamb New Zealand said the form of halal slaughter used there does allow for the animals to be stunned. A spokesman said: ‘In New Zealand the process for halal slaughter is virtually the same as for non-halal slaughter.’ He said there was no need to label the meat as halal on animal welfare grounds and it would too expensive to introduce labelling simply to provide the information.

A Magical Mind

From blowing dandelion seeds into the air to throwing a penny into a fountain, we have all felt inspired to make a wish, to whisper our secret desires into the ears of the universe and wait for signs that we have been heard. Some wishes come true while others remain ethereal visions that either stay with us or fade like a star in the light of morning. Whether they come true or not, wishes are important missives, expressing our heart's desire as well as our intention to create something new in our lives. When we wish for something, our consciousness opens to receiving it, like a flower unfolding its petals to receive a bee. There is something innocent and magical about making a wish, something that recalls the energy of childhood. Wishing is not about formulating a plan and following it step by step to attain a goal, which is the realm of adulthood. Wishing is more like a playful volley across the universe, an invitation to play. Waiting for the response is an integral part of the process. Wishing inspires an innocent opening to the possibility of magic as we wait to see if the invisible realm will bring our wish to life. This opening is a beautiful gesture in and of itself, regardless of the outcome. We place ourselves in a magical mind, and this mind is arguably as wonderful as the fulfillment of our wish itself. In our straightforward, action-oriented society, we may tend to dismiss the power of this seemingly passive process, yet the power of a wish is well known, hence the cautionary phrase, "Be careful what you wish for." If you have given up wishing in favor of more adult pursuits, you might want to bring its magic back into your life. The next time you see the first star of the evening, or find yourself in front of a birthday cake covered in flaming candles, give yourself the gift of the magical realm that you knew so well as a child-close your eyes, open your mind, and make your wish.

Help End Criminalization of Vitamin, Supplement Makers in America

'Telling the truth in America is currently illegal... at least as far as food and supplements are concerned.

But right now, three vital pieces of legislation hold the potential to end the era of censorship in America and once again restore freedom of speech to the health industry.

The Masonic Moon Landing Hoax

John Glenn, two-time US senator and the first American in space was a known Mason. The number of astronauts known to be Masons is astonishing: Buzz Aldrin Jr. (Apollo 11), Gordon Cooper Jr., (Mercury 9, Gemini 5), Donn Eisele (Apollo 7), John Glenn Jr., (Mercury 6), Virgil Grissom (Apollo 1&15, Mercury 5, Gemini 3), James Irwin (Apollo 15), Edgar Mitchell (Apollo 14), Walter Schirra Jr. (Apollo 7, Sigma 7, Gemini 6, Mercury 8), Thomas Stafford (Apollo 10&18, Gemini 7&9), and Paul Weitz (Skylab 2, Challenger). This list is by no means comprehensive and there are likely scores upon scores of Masons within the ranks of NASA. Werner Von Braun, the first director of NASA was one of many top Nazi rocket-scientists the OSS/CIA brought to America during Operation Paperclip. So to begin with, NASA is full of Masons and Nazis - not the most historically honest folks.
There is an area of very high radiation called the Van Allen Belt 272 miles from Earth which the Russians could never pass. In fact in 1959 Bill Kaysing reported on a Russian study which discovered that the amount of radiation on the moon would require astronauts to be clothed in 4 feet of lead in order to avoid instant death. John Mauldin, a NASA physicist, said they would need at least two meters of thick shielding. How did the NASA astronauts account for the Van Allen Belt and Moon’s radiation? How were they able to walk on the Moon in such flimsy suits? On top of this, every 11 years the Van Allen Belt varies through cycles of radiation and 1969-70 during the Apollo missions was at peak intensity. NASA has never provided an adequate explanation for more...

Yes, I'm sure that the way the Egyptians did this was to have someone walk hundreds of miles to the end of the delta and hold a really, really long piece of string while someone walked all the way back to the site of the pyramid. Then, those two people stood there while two more people repeated the process on the other side of the Pyramid.

Possession Is No Myth ....

Once again, for genetics think vibration. The body, including DNA and its ‘reader’ and blueprint protector, RNA, are all vibrational in their prime state and so what the Reptilian ‘geneticists’ were doing – are still doing – in ‘breeding’ a greater ‘genetic’ compatibility in the hybrids was actually creating a greater vibrational or frequency compatibility.

This makes these hybrid bloodlines, what I call the Illuminati bloodlines that manipulate the global political, financial, media, military etc. system, far easier for the Reptilians to ‘possess’ and forge a strong mental, ‘emotional’ and ‘physical’ connection, than with the general population.
The vibrational compatibility is such that the Reptilian entities ‘wear’ these human hybrids as little more than a vehicle to hide within human society without the people having a clue what is going on. It is worth remembering this when you see people like the Bushes, Obama, Kissinger, Blair and leading hybrid families like the Rockefellers, House of Windsor and, especially, the House of Rothschild.
The reason these hybrid families interbreed with each other (and within each other) so obsessively is to continually ‘download’ the hybrid information blueprint which is diluted very quickly once it ‘breeds’ (shares its information) with non-hybrids.
This is the real reason for the pressure on ‘royal’, aristocratic and leading banking, business families, and so on, to marry and procreate for ‘genes’ and not primarily for love or attraction. (David Icke)

Loving Presence

In our everyday life we are surrounded by a variety of people. Some of the people we deal with on a daily basis are a joy to be with, and their loving presence nurtures and encourages us. Others may have the opposite effect, draining us of our energy, making us feel tired and exhausted. Our well-being can be easily influenced by those around us, and if we can keep this in mind, we will have greater insights into the quality of our social interactions and their energetic effect on us. Once we think more deeply about the people we interact with, it becomes easier for us to work toward filling our lives with people who help us cultivate healthy and positive relationships. Even though it might not always seem like we have much control over who we are with, we do. The power to step back from toxicity lies within us. All we have to do is take a few moments to reflect on how another person makes you feel. Assessing the people we spend the most time with allows us to see if they add something constructive to, or subtract from, our lives. Should a friend sap our strength, for example, we can simply set the intention to tell them how we feel or simply spend less time with them. We will find that the moment we are honest with ourselves about our own feelings, the more candid we can be with others about how they make us feel. While this may involve some drastic changes to our social life it can bring about a personal transformation that will truly empower us, since the decision to live our truth will infuse our lives with greater happiness. When we surround ourselves with positive people, we clear away the negativity that exists around us and create more room to welcome nurturing energy. Doing this not only enriches our lives but also envelopes us in a supportive and healing space that fosters greater growth, understanding, and love of ourselves as well as those we care about.

Bandicoot Totem Animal

Bandicoot is the gentle shadow. It is a solitary creature, intimate with the shadows, excavating burrows for food and gently negotiating its way through heath and sand and earth. Bandicoot teaches us the safety and security that is to be found in the darkness and the shadow, and is a great guide for those who are currently in a dark part of their lives who need some respite from what might seem an endless, shadowy, tumult. Bandicoot can also aid those who are scared of the dark. - Sand is both menial and trivial, yet it is the stuff that makes mountains. We walk on it, it gets in our hair, it makes up the structures that often house us. It is in manipulated forms a shelter and a part of our lives. Yet so often we just sweep it off the porch without a second thought, or for those of us who live in countries with little sand, we rarely think of it at all. Bandicoot teaches us sand knowledge and sand magic. There are gems of wisdom that can nourish us from within what might seem the barrenness of sand, and bandicoot can help guide us to discover what this wisdom is.
- Bandicoot helps us to release ties with kin that are negative and unhealthy.
- Alongside kinship relations, bandicoot teaches us the power of dominance and hierarchy. Do you know where you stand with your friends, family and partner? If not, why not? Find out!
Bandicoot tells us to step up quick smart and find out our place with the people around us. We know how to maintain our own boundaries, if we know where our boundaries stand with others.
- As bandicoot shares lessons of the earth and ground, it also shares guidance on issues of inner stability. We need to find our own earth paths in life that are stable, solid and supportive. Bandicoot teaches us that we can't live a healthy path if every path we walk is unstable. We must look within and without for paths and parts of our life that are stable and grounded.
- Bandicoot teaches us how to be grounded and aggressive at the same time, so that our aggression comes from a place which is true to us, and doesn't let us 'fly off the handle.' If you are in a time of your life which is so frustrating that you are snapping and angry at everyone, it might be time to listen to what bandicoot has to say, and to control your aggression.
- Bandicoot teaches us that one of the most successful ways we can understand the ancient earth is by living a quiet existence, especially amongst times of noise and trauma. Bandicoot comes in our lives to quietly nuzzle our shoulder and point out a little shadowy, sandy track that we missed, and to not neglect it simply because it looks quiet and uninteresting. Like bandicoot, sometimes the quietest places are where we find the most nourishment... read more...
