Using EMF Detectors for Paranormal Investigation

In the paranormal field, it’s largely accepted that in order to communicate or manifest, spirits must gather energy from their surroundings. If this theory is possible, then the energy waves that are altered during the process can be measured. Paranormal investigators measure these changes in the electromagnetic field with EMF detectors.

To detect changes in the electromagnetic field, paranormal investigators first sweep a given area to discover that location’s base reading (In other words, the normal reading). A typical base reading is usually anywhere from 2 to 3 milligaus. A needle on the EMF Detector moves back and forth to indicate changes in electromagnetic energy. The needle moves to the right for higher levels of electromagnetic energy. Any spike on the EMF detector that occurs in combination with a sound, visual evidence, a cold spot, or disembodied voice caught on tape could mean that a spirit is trying to manifest.

Since EMF detectors measure the strength of the electromagnetic field, investigators often find sources of electrical leakages instead of paranormal activity. Electrical leakages can result in the following symptoms: headaches, nausea, fear, paranoia, anxiety and if the leakage is severe enough, hallucinations. (Suite 101)

Airport Body Scanners 'Could Give You Cancer', Warns Expert

'Full body scanners at airports could increase your risk of skin cancer, experts warn. The X-ray machines have been brought in at Manchester, Gatwick and Heathrow. But scientists say radiation from the scanners has been underestimated and could be particularly risky for children. They say that the low level beam does deliver a small dose of radiation to the body but because the beam concentrates on the skin - one of the most radiation-sensitive organs of the human body - that dose may be up to 20 times higher than first estimated...Read more:

U.K. Bomb, That Never Was, Designed to Detonate in Flight .

'A device found in the U.K. on a United Parcel Service Inc. plane bound for Chicago on Friday was designed to go off on the aircraft, Prime Minister David Cameron said Saturday. U.K. Home Secretary Theresa May added that the device was powerful enough to bring down the aircraft.

The U.K. doesn't believe it was being targeted in the incident because the attackers couldn't have known the route of the plane.

"We believe that the device was designed to go off on the airplane," Mr. Cameron said. "We cannot be sure about the timing when that was meant to take place. There is no early evidence it was designed to take place over British soil, but of course we cannot rule that out"...Read more:

Looking Further

Each human life is a wondrous symphony of sensation. As are all living things, plants and animals alike, we are sensitive to the vivid parade of sights, smells, and sounds that constitute our experience. Unlike plants and animals, however, we possess a uniquely broad self-awareness that sets us apart. We think in terms not only of immediate sensation and survival, but also in terms of abstract ideas and of ourselves as individuals. Our ability to think introspectively and reflectively is a mystery. Human consciousness defies attempts to assign it an origin or a reason because its purpose is unclear. Though consciousness is a product of thoughts, emotions, sensation, and experience, we are dual-natured. We define our awareness in terms of how we interact with others, yet only on our own can we grasp our own consciousness. Because consciousness is the sum of our inner thoughts, feelings, and personalities, we have no way of judging the consciousness of others. We may ask, "Is another's experiences of sensations such as color, pain, pleasure, temperature, or taste the same as our own?" but we can never truly be sure. Our most vivid experiences are those of the senses: the scene that unfolds before us, the temperature of the air, hunger, pain, the passage of time, and sounds. But as conscious beings, we possess a unique set of choices. Animals repeatedly make the same choices based on sensation, but as humans we are unpredictable. We can ignore hunger during ceremonial fasts or enjoy the pain of vigorous massage. We can disregard the passage of time through meditation or disregard the outside world entirely. It is consciousness that allows us to interpret the world and ourselves using criteria we develop through experience. Norman Cousins said, "The human brain is a mirror to infinity." As conscious beings, we examine and interpret the whole of the universe through our own existences. But, limited as our experiences may be, it is our self-awareness that has allowed humanity to develop such noble concepts as empathy, beauty, charity, love, and art. We are not simply aware of the world and ourselves. It is our consciousness that has allowed us to look further, into the realm of creation, invention, and the spirit, and to give our lives purpose.

UAE Rejects US Claims on Flight 201

'The United Arab Emirates' Civil Aviation Authority has rejected claims that a US-bound Emirates' flight from Dubai contained "suspicious" parcels from Yemen. Emirati authorities, however, said flight 201 carried no 'suspicious' cargo from Yemen as claimed by US-Canadian military agency NORAD. UAE officials rejected the claim and said the plane was not a source of threat.
"The Emirates plane that arrived today in the United States from Dubai did not contain any packages from Yemen," the official Emirati WAM news agency quoted an unnamed source with the country's civil aviation body as saying.
Meanwhile, the US president hinted at boosting the US military role in Yemen following reports about the "suspicious packages".'..Read more:

'Will German's Solve Madeleine Mystery'?

Kate and Gerry McCann believe a German tourist could hold the key to their daughter’s disappearance. The desperate couple are pleading with Germans holidaying in Portugal’s Algarve to keep their eyes open in the search for Madeleine. The McCanns last week launched their official Find Maddie website in German. The move follows a boost to the private investigative team, with three former British policemen joining and a shake-up of the Maddie Fund board of directors, as exclusively revealed by the Sunday Express last week.

The new-look website, aimed at reaching a bigger part of Europe, has given fresh hope to the family, from Rothley, Leicestershire.

Their spokesman Clarence Mitchell said yesterday: “Kate and Gerry are very pleased with the new site and hope it will lead to important new developments. They have long wanted to make sure they reach the German public because so many Germans were holidaying in the Algarve at the time Madeleine disappeared.” (

Beltane: 31st October 2010 (Southern Hemisphere)

Northern Hemisphere Date: May 1st
Also known as Bealtaine, Walpurgisnacht, May Day, (Northern Hemisphere) & Novey Eve (in Southern Hemisphere).

Beltane, the beginning of the summer months is at the November cross-quarter. This is the festival of the Great Rite - of sexual union between Goddess and God. Beltane is the spring fertility festival and there is feasting and celebration - a great festival for lovers! Beltane is the most popular time for Witches to be handfasted. This is the time when the brilliant red flowers of the Flame Trees highlight Australian forests and gardens. The famous Austrlian horse race - the Melbourne Cup - is happily coincident with southern Beltane, being run on the first Tuesday in November and taken as an unofficial holiday across Australia. (Spheres Of Light)

The Southern Wheel of the Year

The Wheel of the Year is a Pagan metaphor and calendar for the cycle of the seasons. It consists of eight festivals, known as sabbats, spaced at approximately even intervals throughout the year.

In many forms of Paganism, the passing of time is seen as cyclical, and is represented by a circle or wheel. The progression of birth, life, decline and death, as experienced in human lives, is echoed in the progression of the seasons. Many Pagans also see this cycle as echoing the life, death and rebirth of the God and the fertility of the Goddess.

As the Wheel originates in the Northern Hemisphere, in the Southern Hemisphere most Pagans advance these dates six months so as to coincide with the natural seasons as they occur in their local climates. For instance, an Australian Pagan may celebrate Beltane on the 1st of November, when a Northern Hemisphere Pagan is celebrating Samhain.

The Pagan Wheel of the Year turns through many significant dates and festivals. The highlights are the eight seasonal Sabbats, and the thirteen Esbats which we celebrate each Full Moon.
The Sabbats are divided into two groups. The Greater Sabbats; Samhain, Imbolc, Beltane and Lammas, fall on dates that represent high energy in the season. The Lesser Sabbats; Yule, Ostara, Litha and Mabon, fall on the equinoxes and solstices, the dates of which vary slightly from year to year, and they mark the changes of the four seasons. The Greater Sabbats are also known as the "cross-quarter" days as they mark the point between the solstice and the equinox.
This seasonal cycle is one of the key ways in which we see the processes of birth, growth, death, and rebirth play themselves out, and the myth of the Wheel of the Year was created to illustrate this cycle.
There are many variations of the myth throughout the different Pagan Traditions but the underlying theme is the same, and the rituals of the Sabbats are derived from this myth. A simplified version is given below:

In midwinter, the Goddess gives birth to a son, the God, who grows to adolescence by spring. In spring, the Goddess appears to the God in a youthful form. She falls pregnant to him and grows in beauty through summer and autumn. Over the same time, the God ages and slowly dies, symbolizing winter. In the darkest time, when the days are at their shortest, the Goddess gives birth to her son, the God, whom she will again take as a lover in spring, continuing the life cycle or spiral.

In this myth the Triple Goddess goes through the changing aspects of Maiden, Mother, and Crone. The God brings forth the force of projective energy, the Spark of Life, and also the withdrawing and destructive energy of Death. The Goddess absorbs, reflects and transforms these energies. The Goddess and God are viewed as immortal and imperishable; they are the Duality of the Divine. Their different aspects are a symbolic shifting of cycles, ones we discover within ourselves, our World and throughout our own lives. This is the process that produces balance; within and without, above and below....READ MORE...

Mind, Meditation and Health

Mind is a regulatory process that can be monitored, measured, observed and modified.
Within each of us there is an internal mental world – what I have come to think of as the sea inside – a wonderful rich place filled with thoughts and feelings, memories and dreams, hopes and wishes. It can also be a turbulent place where we experience the dark side of all those wonderful feelings and thoughts – fear, sorrow, dread, regret, nightmares.

When the inner sea seems to crash in on us, threatening to drag us down below to the dark depths, it can make us feel as if we are drowning. Who among us has not at one time or another felt overwhelmed by the sensations generated from within our own minds? Sometimes these feelings are just a passing thing … but sometimes they seem to be something much more intractable, so much part of the very essence of who we are that it might not even occur to us that we can change them. This is where the skill that I call “mindsight” comes in. It has the potential to free us from patterns of mind that are getting in the way of living our lives to the fullest.
Mindsight is a kind of focused attention that allows us to see the internal workings of our own minds. It helps us to be aware of our mental processes without being swept away by them, enables us to get ourselves off the autopilot of ingrained behaviors and habitual responses, and moves us beyond the reactive emotional loops we all have a tendency to get trapped in. It lets us “name and tame” the emotions we are experiencing rather than be overwhelmed by them.
Consider the difference between speaking or thinking, “I am sad” and “I feel sad.” Similar as those two statements may seem, there is actually a profound difference between them. “I am sad,” is a kind of self-definition and a very limiting one. “I feel sad,” suggests the ability to recognize and acknowledge a feeling without being consumed by it. The focusing skills that are a part of mindsight make it possible to distinguish between the feeling over the identity, accept the present moment of that feeling, let it go, and then transform it.

Mindsight acts as a very special lens that gives us the capacity to perceive the mind with greater clarity than ever before. This lens is something that virtually everyone can develop, and once we have it we can dive deeply into the mental sea inside, exploring our own inner lives. A uniquely human ability, mindsight allows us to examine closely in great detail and depth, the process by which we think, feel, and behave. It also allows us to reshape and redirect our inner experiences so that we have more freedom of choice in our everyday actions, more power to create the future, to become the author of our own story. Mindsight is the basic skill that underlies everything we mean when we speak of having social and emotional intelligence...READ MORE..

Mysterious Origin

The lights descended ...

A strange efflorescence shone from the tower hill
An eerie rapture touched the soil ... a spell of forgetting ... an alien intention.
The lights loomed closer ... closer ...
... tiny orbs of blue ... vibrating quickly ...
... a distant humming ... a chilling cacophony ...
A myriad of orbs then touched the earth ... in unison
... then lifted slightly ...
... in formation ... the intended shape.

Transcendence: The True Awakening From The Matrix

Observing Evolution

Watching a loved one or a peer traverse a path littered with stumbling blocks can be immensely painful. We instinctively want to guide them toward a safer track and share with them the wisdom we have acquired through experience. Yet all human beings have the right to carve their own paths without being unduly influenced by outside interference. To deny them that right is to deny them enlightenment, as true insight cannot be conveyed in lectures. Rather, each individual must earn independence and illumination by making decisions and reflecting upon the consequences of each choice. In allowing others to walk their paths freely, you honor their right to express their humanity in whatever way they see fit. Though you may not agree with or identify with their choices, understand that each person must learn in their own way and at their own pace. The events and circumstances that shape our lives are unique because each of us is unique. What touches one person deeply may do nothing more than irritate or confound another. Therefore, each of us is drawn to different paths-the paths that will have the most profound effects on our personal evolution. If you feel compelled to intervene when watching another human being make their way slowly and painfully down a difficult path, try to empathize with their need to grow autonomous and make their own way in the world. Should this person ask for your aid, give it freely. You can even tell them about your path or offer advice in a conscious loving way. Otherwise, give them the space they need to make their own mistakes, to enjoy the fruits of their labors, to revel in their triumphs, and to discover their own truths. The temptation to direct the paths of others is a creature of many origins. Overactive egos can convince us that ours is the one true path or awaken a craving for control within us. But each person is entitled to seek out their path leading from the darkness into the light. When we celebrate those paths and encourage the people navigating them, we not only enjoy the privilege of watching others grow-we also reinforce our dedication to diversity, independence, and individuality.

They WERE bombs: Al Qaeda planted explosives found in ink cartridge on jets in UK and Dubai heading for the U.S.

An explosive package found at a UK airport sparked a major terror alert on both sides of the Atlantic last night. President Obama warned of a ‘credible terrorist threat’ after the package, a modified printer cartridge, was discovered at East Midlands Airport. It had been carried on a plane from Yemen. A similar device was found in Dubai. Both contained ‘explosive material’ and were discovered on cargo planes that had stopped en route from Yemen to Chicago.' The packages, thought to have been the work of Al Qaeda, were addressed to synagogues in the American city. The one found in Britain was intercepted by MI6 after a tip-off to one of its sources in the Arabian country, it was reported last night. Security services were placed on high alert. The first package was found in the early hours yesterday. It had arrived on a United Parcel Service (UPS) flight which stopped at East Midlands Airport, on the Derbyshire and Leicestershire border. It was taken off the plane and placed in a UPS storage depot just 300ft from the runway and half a mile from the passenger terminal, which is used by five million a year. (Daily Mail)

The Partitioned Human Brain

SuperConsciousness Magazine spoke with Jason Martell about the apparent genetic connection between the Anunnaki and human beings referenced in the ancient Sumerian tablets and reliefs.

The Sumerian evidence brought a new variable to light, which was that these beings that come from heaven actually were here, brought their technology and contributed genetic information to the human gene pool.

Your investigation lead you to agree that we, the human species, are genetically tied to alien races, specifically the Anunnaki which is documented in Zecharia Sitchin’s research and books – that we’re genetically created from some combination of their genes and earth’s pre-existing life forms. Have you found that this knowledge satisfies your questions about where we come from?
The texts clearly state that the Anunnaki created us for a specific purpose, which was to mine gold. There are many pieces of Sumerian evidence that support that idea. For one, every human being on Earth seems to be very much attracted to gold. The whole idea of holding a bar of gold in your hand, people look at it and they get excited. So, the other thing that’s really interesting is the fact that every other species on this planet has a neurological network in the brain that they fully utilize: All other species use all of their synapses. Human beings are the only ones that have a genetic partition on their brain where we’re only using up to ten percent of the brain. No one can answer that except put into the context of the Anunnaki creating us, just like the Bible says, in their image and after their likeness. We have many of the same attitudes and understandings and anger and feelings the Anunnaki probably possessed.

Another of the implications are, if we look at us as being a warring society, where does this need to constantly have wars come from? I think a lot of these pieces of information when put together into a different light, is more than likely that spiritually as well as technologically advanced beings have imparted wisdom to us. And, unfortunately over the years that knowledge about our past has been misconstrued as mythology rather than events that actually took place. What I have learned from my research is that the Anunnaki were here on Earth at one point, a designated human high priest would work with the Anunnaki. The priest would listen to their decrees and sacred information, or a scribe, sitting with the high priest, would write all of this down. And so the priests would have sacred knowledge that was only passed on by those priests that the Anunnaki taught. We still use that very same [educational] model today.

It was important information that when we were receiving from them, but then all of a sudden, the Anunnaki left earth. The high priests were left in a difficult position of people asking them for the laws and the new information from our gods, but they no longer had access to the gods. So, instead, what they did was they created statues of the various different types of gods and started worshipping these statues in place of the actual beings, because that’s all they could do. And that process also still continues on to today..... READ MORE...

Just For Fun: The Seasiders Vs WBA

The spread indicates a change of fortune on the side of The Seasiders. However, there are also indications of fear & tension in the Seasider's side. Expectations and previous results seemingly coming into their game. Whereas the images of The Star & The Sun are on the side of the visitors. However. The King Of Swords appears to point the advantage in the favour of The Seasiders. But, as is the learning curve of these predictions ... is this really what this spread is saying? Will the pressures prove too much for The Seasiders .... ? Is the fear indicated that of them sinking in to the relegation zone for the first time?

UPDATE 12th November 2010
Well ... The Seasiders had the advantage just. There were nervses and fear too.

Buddhist Inspiration ... for the day

Fixed ideas are like a wisp of cloud or smoke, but nonetheless people find themselves blocked or captured by these. You would laugh if you saw someone tripped by a cloud, or if someone claimed that they were imprisoned by the air. But, in fact, people are endlessly being trapped by things no more substantial than air or clouds. They make a wall with their mind, and then it imprisons them. Inherently, there is no wall or anything to trip over. These things are mirages they've created from the thoughts they gave rise to. Do not insist upon your own fixed ideas. Your persistence is your own narrow mind. If your mind is broad, it can easily embrace the entire world. However, if your mind is narrow, even a needle cannot enter. You have to keep letting go of your stubbornness, and always be deeply respectful of all life and things.

Awareness Of Presence

The night is still
A gentle breeze sways the grasses beside the shore
Preternatural coldness and a spell is summoned for protection
Banes of shielding worn on simple woollen garb
Silent footfalls blend the necromancer into the night.
A far off cry halts progress
The sense of ill doing overwhelms attuned senses
More spells, more summonings ……
Awareness of presence …… sensations of power emanating around the necromancer
Imagination flaring
Shape shifter awareness
Urgency beyond the usual
Magical summoning kept under strict control
The disciplined mind of the necromancer assuming mastery
Here in a night deep in unknown lands
A dimensional realm far beyond the usual places
Land fall into this land of dreams came moments before
The Necromancer well prepared
A life time of such trans locations behind him now.

We are not alone: One in four stars 'may have Earth-like planets in orbit around them'

The Universe is teeming with planets capable of supporting alien life, according to a new study. After studying stars similar to the Sun, astronomers found that almost one in four could have small, rocky planets just like the Earth.
Many of these worlds may occupy the 'Goldilocks' zone - the region where conditions are neither too hot, nor too cold, for liquid water and possibly life. The findings mean that there could be tens of billions of planets like the Earth in our own galaxy alone - and trillions upon trillions of planet able to support life throughout the Universe. Scientists came to the conclusion after spending five years studying 166 Sun-like stars within 80 light years - or 470 trillion miles - from the Earth. (Daily Mail)

Shifting Roles

Throughout the course of a successful marriage or long-term commitment, the two people in the relationship may shift in and out of various roles. For example, one person in the couple may support the other person going back to school. In order to do this, he or she steps into a supporting role, setting aside certain goals or aspirations in order to provide a stable base from which his or her partner can launch in a new direction. There are many gifts of learning inherent in this role—from having the opportunity to embody a nurturing stance to feeling the pleasure of seeing a loved one thrive. When our partner expands his or her horizons, ours expand, too, and we gain access to a world that would otherwise remain closed to us. However, there is also much to be said for having a turn to be the one stepping outside the box, perhaps taking time to attend to our personal healing, spiritual pursuits, or other interests. In order to maintain balance within our relationships, it’s important that we address these issues each time one person steps into a supporting role so the other can try something new. When we are conscious about acknowledging that one person is bearing a bit more of a burden so that the other can grow, we stand a better chance of making sure the ebb and flow in the relationship remains fair and equal. The most important part of this process is open communication in which each person has a chance to express how they feel and come to an understanding about the roles they have agreed to play and when they expect them to shift. Each time a dynamic shift occurs, a ceremony of acknowledgment can lend an air of distinction to the moment. This can be a simple dinner date or an elaborate ritual, depending upon what works best for us at the time. Perhaps the most important thing is expressing gratitude to the person in the supporting role and encouragement to the person moving in a new direction. When the flow of feeling and communication is open, a healthy closeness develops that allows each person in the relationship to have a turn at each of these important roles.

Buddhist Inspiration ... for the day

We are often exposed, if not first hand, then through films, reading material, and conversations, to violence, fear, hatred, meaningless infatuations. Society is full of violence and hatred, which accumulates in the collective consciousness. If in our daily lives we do not know now to abstain from damaging materials and attitudes, the seeds of violence, hatred and suffering in us will continue to be watered. We need to be aware of what we hear,see, and read every day… Do our associations and consumptions poison us?

The Ancient Warrior

Rusty red, not a gas ball-Mars looms near. Place of pink skies and global sandstorms. Most likely candidate for extensive human settlement -in this solar system. Full cycle real close to two years. Mythological cloak, red with the blood of sex and war. Mars, the astrological cycle of Motivation, Externalization, Drive, and Assertion. Yes, Mars the astrological cycle; not Mars the planet.
Because of the view from Earth, all the planets but the Moon and Sun (I know the Moon is a moon and the Sun is a star but, again, we're talking in two languages) have a period when they look like they're going backwards (but they aren't). In terms of cycles, this is a forward motion with a period of time when it's naturally appropriate to slow down or even reverse our intentions or motivations, check ourselves, analyze plans, and then resume with a better plan, direction, or thrust.
So, at the beginning of the Mars cycle, we're all full of the rebirth of a new motivation, drive, or period of assertion. We really cruise, plowing through obstacles, climbing mountains of resistance, and making good headway. When we reach the first quarter phase of the cycle, we make a point of reinforcing the strength of our intentions, sometimes shifting gear into a higher vibration of drive. Along we go, and, near the middle of the cycle, things get more uphill, or possibly we find our fuel running low. Maybe others are naysaying our progress. For a few months out of the two years of the cycle, just when we reach the time of bringing it to personal fulfillment, we should slow down. We're getting ready for the transition to the second half of the cycle. At this time, it's appropriate to share our motivation and drive with others, even act for them or pick up their loads. We need the time of "reversal" or slow-down to make sure that we don't run off past others, that we can moderate the thrust in order to give it social value. This phase of the cycle, so necessary to proper growth, has a decided element of internalization about it. A certain reaching-in; finding what the rest of "us" needs...READ MORE...

Difficult Times

It can be very challenging to maintain a positive attitude and a measure of faith when you are in the midst of difficult times. This is partly because we tend to think that if the universe loves us we will experience that love in the form of positive circumstances. However, we are like children, and the universe is our wise mother who knows what our souls need to thrive better than we do. Just as a young child does not benefit from getting everything she wants, we also benefit from times of constriction and difficulty to help us grow and learn. If we keep this in mind, and continue to trust that we are loved even when things are hard, it helps us bear the difficult time with grace. This period of time in history is full of difficulty for a lot of human beings, and you may feel less alone knowing you are not being singled out. There are extreme energy changes pulsing through the universe at every level and, of course, we are all part of the growing process and the growing pains. It helps if we remember that life is one phase after another and that this difficult time will inevitably give way to something new and different. When we feel overwhelmed we can comfort ourselves with the wise saying: This too shall pass. At the same time, if you truly feel that nothing is going right for you, it’s never a bad idea to examine your life and see if there are some changes you can make to alleviate some of the difficulty. Gently and compassionately exploring the areas giving you the most trouble may reveal things you are holding onto and need to release: unprocessed emotions, unresolved transitions, or negative ways of looking at yourself or reality. As you take responsibility for the things you can change, you can more easily surrender to the things you can’t, remembering all the while that this phase will, without doubt, give way to another.

The Hundred Year Starship: The Nasa mission that will take astronauts to Mars and leave them there forever

The mission is to boldly go where no man has gone before – on a flight to Mars. The snag is that you’d never come back. The U.S. space agency Nasa is actively investigating the possibility of humans colonising other worlds such as the Red Planet in an ambitious project named the Hundred Years Starship. The settlers would be sent supplies from Earth, but would go on the understanding that it would be too costly to make the return trip. NASA Ames Director Pete Worden revealed that one of NASA’s main research centres, Ames Research Centre, has received £1million funding to start work on the project. The research team has also received an additional $100,000 from Nasa.
Depending on the position of Mars in its orbit around the sun, its distance from Earth varies between 34million and 250million miles. The most recent unmanned mission there was Nasa’s Phoenix lander, which launched in August 2007 and landed on the planet’s north polar cap in May the following year. Experts say a nuclear-fuelled rocket could shorten the journey to about four months. (Daily Mail) [Opinion: more than likely we are already on Mars?]

A Word on 'Radical Forgiveness'

Radical Forgiveness is based upon the simple premise that the 'dark' or shadow aspects of our psyche which we need to acknowledge and heal are reflected for us in those who have significant impact on our lives - be they lovers, spouse, work colleagues, children, parents, friends, mentors or so called enemies. As Tipping quite rightly pointed out: "if you spot it (a behaviour trait) in others, then you have got it. (yourself)."

The key word in the above statement is 'acknowledge'. Whenever we try to deny something we don't like by pretending it does not exist in us, we invalidate it. To invalidate means "to render having no effect", but the great irony is that as soon as we attempt to invalidate something it immediately demands attention to be validated. The reason for this is simple. Invalidation by definition is an attempt to separate out that which one wishes to invalidate from those aspects we choose to acknowledge. From the perspective of the essential 'ONENESS' pervading the Universe, separation is an illusory 'artificial' state requiring a huge amount of energy to maintain.

When we suppress something by invalidating it, we think the issue has gone away, but this is a delusion because the issue will inevitably reappear at some stage to be acknowledged and validated and this process cannot be avoided. Invalidation is a bit like trying to stop the flow of a stream; it can be achieved for a little while, but eventually the weight of water builds up and overwhelms us and continues to flow in accordance with the natural law of more...

Leaked Trade Agreements and Hidden Things Inside S 510: Corporations Plan to End Normal Farming

'Under provisions in CETA [Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement], using saved seed could result in a farmer's land, equipment, and crops being seized for alleged infringement of intellectual property rights attached to plant varieties owned by corporations such as Monsanto, Dow, Syngenta, and Bayer.

"It includes the freezing of bank accounts too, so you couldn't even defend yourself in court. And this is for alleged infringement," says NFU [National Farmers Union] president Terry Boehm. ...

"These are the most draconian measures possible and they would literally create a culture of fear in the farm population where, I think, that ultimately farmers would end up buying seeds every year for every acre just to avoid prosecution or the threat of prosecution"...Read more:

Is this a time-traveller in a Charlie Chaplin film? Footage from 1928 shows woman 'using a mobile phone'

Perhaps she really is a time-traveller, sent back through the decades to make a jaw-dropping cameo appearance. Or maybe she was a maverick genius, secretly testing out advanced technology for the government and caught on camera at the wrong moment. Whatever the explanation, this footage from a Charlie Chaplin filmed in 1928 which shows a woman apparently using a mobile phone has left viewers stumped.
The baffling footage is found in the extras section of The Circus and shows members of the public attending the premiere of the film at Manns Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. The short piece of footage shows an older woman dressed in a coat and hat with her hand held up to the left-hand side of her face as she talks. There is no one around for her to be speaking to apart from a suited man who strides on ahead at the beginning of the shot.
Even her gestures and behaviour as she 'talks' will be eerily familiar to modern-day viewers as she appears to stop, mid-sentence, during her apparent conversation. The bizarre anachronism was unearthed by film buff George Clark on his Charlie Chaplin box set. He says he has shown it to more than 100 people and still no one can come up with a convincing explanation. Some viewers have suggested that she is listening to a portable radio close to her face, although this would not explain why she appears to be talking. Some viewers say that she may be displaying signs of schizophrenia and may be covering her face to hide the fact that she is talking aloud to herself.

Others suggest that she is simply trying to hide her face from the camera so she is not filmed.
Still others, rather more sceptically, believe the footage is just a stunt created by George lark to publicise his film festival.
The first device that could be likened to a mobile phone was Motorola’s first ‘Walkie-Talkie’ which was developed in the 1940s, but that was the size of a man’s arm and still came more than a decade after the Chaplin film. Portable mobile phones that we would recognise today did not appear until the 1980s and even then they were still too big to hide in the palm of your hand.
In a video that Mr Clark has posted on YouTube he jokes that the only plausible theory is that the woman is a time traveller. (Daily Mail)

The Lost Children

The shadow cannot venture to these deep places ... to these powerful ancient places
To the obelisk and beyond ... for the shadow is fearful of truth and of oneness
And those souls who enter are of truth and are of oneness ... there is no hidden agenda
They be the lost children .. Those ancient spirits opposed by the shadow kind ...
The shadow kind ... those selfish, loveless injured shards of the primal worlds,
The very force which opposes the power of universal life and life ...

Opposition in perfect balance
The shards whose physical manifestations are the hidden dictators on earth ... the demon kin.

Life As It Is

Sometimes we have so many varying responsibilities in our lives, ranging from work obligations to caring for children to running a household, we feel we cannot possibly make it all work. We may feel overwhelmed in the face of it all, ending each day feeling hopelessly behind schedule. However, regardless of how frustrating this can be, these are the parameters that make up our lives, and we owe it to ourselves to find a way to make it work. Rather than buckling under the pressure of an impossible to-do list, we might take a moment to view the larger perspective. Like the president of a large organization, we must first realize that we cannot do every job ourselves. The first step to sanity is learning how to delegate some of the responsibility to other people, whether by paying someone to clean our house or trading childcare duties with another parent. In addition, we might find places where we can shift our expectations in ways that make our lives easier. For example, expecting ourselves to create a healthy home-cooked meal every night after a full day of work, errands, or caring for an infant or toddler may be a bit excessive. We might allow ourselves to order in food once in a while without any guilt. Accepting the adjustments needed to make our lives work is an essential ingredient to being at peace with our situation. At the end of the day, we must come to terms with changing what we can and accepting what we cannot change. Sometimes the laundry piles up, a sick child demands more of our attention than usual, and we temporarily get behind with our schedule. Accepting this momentary state of affairs and trusting in our ability to get back on track when the time is right, we gracefully accept our life as it is, letting go of perfectionism and embracing life as it stands.

'The Great One Who Sits Above The Sky'

Two warring tribes with a fondness for burning the enemy caused him terrible trouble. Each side pledged to fight fire with fire and a fiery arms race began. Pretty soon the whole Earth was being burnt to a crisp. This adds a whole new meaning to the term fire-fighting. OLELBIS stepped in with his wind and water servants who did a tremendous job of extinguishing the fire and the war. Further retribution was put on hold as the humans had pretty much punished themselves. As mankind was originally meant to live forever, OLELBIS commissioned the building of a Heavenly Ladder so the elderly could climb up to eternal bliss. Which seems a bit unfair on the old folk as it was a very long way to climb. Surely a Heavenly Elevator would be more suitable? Unfortunately, Buzzard Incorporated, the company in charge of construction, was persuaded to stop work by a wily COYOTE. So no-one got to Heaven and OLELBIS remains distant and aloof. This is a classic case of the African-style Heavenly Ladder/Unreachable God scenario. Could OLELBIS have been one of the first African exports? (

The Nodes

The Moon's Nodes aren't of course planets. But their influence is arguably as important, which is why I've included them in this series. The Moon's North and South Nodes are sensitive points, indicating where the Moon's path around Earth crosses the ecliptic (the belt through which the Sun and planets appear to travel from our perspective on Earth). Western astrology and Vedic astrology view these points differently. The western view point is as follows.
Firstly, a look at the South Node. Directly opposite the North, its house and sign represent the "home" that keeps pulling us back. It's a comfort zone, describing attitudes and talents which, for good or ill, are easy to believe and express. Astrologers often say that South Node energies were developed in a prior life. At the least, they're usually evident in childhood, their expression somehow supported by our early environment. When we're in the South Node, we know who we are. Its instinctive behaviors and beliefs are familiar and safe, though not always positive.
That's where the North Node comes in as it demands we evolve. The North Node fills us with a temporary audacity-daring us to stretch beyond our customary role. Here we listen to an authority that's higher than family or cultural conditioning, deeper even than personality; lacking a more precise term, its the "soul." The Nodes are the trajectory of the soul's arrow. The South Node is the bow shooting us into this life; the North is the target our soul hopes we will reach. However difficult or unrealistic this target, we are assured that if we get there, we'll enjoy unprecedented success, more meaningful than any South Node accomplishment...READ MORE...

The Five of Swords

In a highly competitive world, we are bound to be defeated by some of the challenges we set ourselves. If we are not to limit ourselves so severely that we never compete for anything, then at some time this card will inevitably come up. And our response to its effect is very important. The way we face the 5 of Swords has a great deal to do with how much effect a setback can have on the whole of our life. If we are able to accept that we cannot be winners all the time, if we are to set our minds to learning from our experiences, if we are to struggle to be positive in the face of adversity, then we can overcome disappointment, and rob the Lord of Defeat of total triumph! At most times the 5 of Swords will indicate much smaller matters than this - you won't get the job you applied for; you won't sell the manuscript this time; you won't get the exam result you wanted; you won't get the house you tried to buy. Look for surrounding cards that indicate the area of your life which will be affected. It's natural to feel down-hearted when we don't get what we want. But it's rare that every single thing in a person's life is going badly at the same time. So count your blessings, pick yourself up and go and do something nice for yourself. And remind yourself of something - you tried, and can try again. And maybe next time your efforts will be met by the Lord of Success!! (Angel Paths)

Clairsentience ...

Clairsentience involves getting a glimpse of other realities or even entities through a sense of touch. This would occur when a psychic lays their hands on someone, or when they touch something that contains a link to another world that they can see. Clairsentience can manifest itself myriad ways and it is an ability that is often hard to explain or to diagnose.

No matter how clairsentience manifests itself, it is a psychic ability that can be the hardest to interpret and the hardest to notice. There might be many people who have the gift of clairsentience but who have never known that they have. If you have a tendency to feel strange things, or to smell or notice things that aren’t there, you might find that you actually have the gift of clairsentience but you have never noticed it before!....

Not Alone in the Dark

It is one of life's great paradoxes that the things we don't want to look at in ourselves are the very things we need to look at in order to know ourselves better and to become more fully who we are. The feelings that make us want to run away are buried treasure full of energy and inspiration if we are willing to look. These feelings come in many forms, from strange images or snippets of information to recurring dreams and feelings that rise up seemingly without a reason. Whatever shape they come in, and no matter how scary they seem, these messengers bring the information we need in order to grow. When we are tired of pushing something down, or trying to run away from it, a good first step is to write down what we think we are avoiding. Often this turns out to be only the surface of the issue or a symbol of something else. Expressing ourselves fully on paper is a safe way to begin exploring the murky territory of the unconscious. The coolness of the intellect can give us the distance we need to read what we have written and feel less afraid of it. It helps if we remember that no matter how dark or negative our thoughts or feelings may be, these are energies shared by all humanity. We are not alone in the dark, and all the gurus and teachers we admire had to go through their own unprocessed emotional territory in order to come out the other side brighter and wiser. This can give us the courage we need to open the treasure chest of what we have been avoiding. Within the parts of ourselves that we don't want to look at, there are emotions that need to be felt. Unfelt emotions are stuck energy, and when we leave emotions unprocessed, we deprive ourselves of access to that energy. When we feel strong enough, we can begin the process of feeling those emotions, on our own or with guidance from a spiritual counselor. It is through this work that the buried treasure of energy and inspiration will pour forth from our hearts, giving us the courage to look at all the parts of ourselves with insight and compassion.

The Greatest Hypnotist of Them All

'I haven't heard this although Dr. James Bowen once told me every once in awhile they add it in some markets to see if people an tell.

Like in the case of Mars I called them and asked if aspartame were in their products and they told me "yes, in Mars Bars". I said, "But its not labelled," and they said, its under natural flavors. I tried one and sure enough immediately got a headache. Because of the chemical hypersensitization I tell aspartame victims over and over never to use processed foods because this and MSG are so often hidden...Read more:

Create Time for Self-Compassion

During those times when our lives are filled with what seems to be constant change and growth, it is important to remember that we need to be gentle with ourselves. Since it can be easy to use our energy to keep up with the momentum of our lives, we may not be aware of the fact that we are much more likely to run ourselves down. When things seem to be moving quickly, it is especially essential that we make a point to slow down and be gentle with ourselves. It might be difficult to notice what is happening to us for we may be so caught up in the whirlwind of our lives that we lose sight of the direction in which things are heading. Being gentle with ourselves doesn’t mean that we don’t accomplish things. Instead it means that we honor ourselves on an ongoing basis and take care of the needs of our bodies. This means different things to different people. For instance, it could mean having a session with a healer; taking a remedy, herbs, or vitamins; or getting extra sleep. Putting our energy into ourselves in this way helps create space for a more positive, loving, and accepting view of our lives. By setting the intention to do so, we will be more cognizant of our energy levels on a daily basis and more able to replenish them as needed. The more we are able to treat our bodies with gentleness, the more tenderness and compassion we will call forth into our lives. Learning to understand and pay attention to what our self needs will in turn allow us to fill our lives with unlimited loving and healing energy and to truly take care of the things that mean the most to us

The Grasdorf Pictogram Plates

'Farmer Werner Harenberg woke up early in the morning of July 23, 1991 to discover Germany’s first spectacular crop circle near the village of Grasdorf, Lower Saxony in the historic Teutoburger Wald Area, not far from Hannover. This location is not far from the prehistoric site of Externsteine, part natural rock, part carvings, caves and bearing various signs of what seems like long and varied religious practices. After noticing that the straws were unbroken, merely bent, Harenberg stated that it could not have been made by amateurs such as had recently allegedly been at play further north in Schleswig-Holstein.

A visitor to the farm, a man wearing a house painter’s outfit and a hanging moustache, turned up nine days later bringing along his metal detector. He searched all nine parts of the pictogram dropping a handkerchief in three spots as mark...all of them had a spherical symbol, less than a semi-circle attached to it. Then he went to his car to pick up a digging tool and a bucket unearthing a bronze, silver and gold plates at the three areas he marked.'

The Joyful Flow

Feelings vibrate, just as all things in the universe do, at a particular frequency. Negative feelings like anger, guilt, and depression vibrate at low frequencies, while positive feelings like joy, appreciation, and passion vibrate at high frequencies. These high frequency vibrations make us feel good. This is why people and places that inspire and cultivate positive feelings have what we call good vibrations. Good vibrations inspire health, happiness, and optimism. When we are tuned in to good vibrations, our bodies heal, our hearts open, and our minds shift toward the light. We see new possibilities and feel powerfully energized to follow our inner visions. At the same time, we feel relaxed and capable of manifesting these visions without giving in to stress or struggle. Good vibrations put us in a state of perfect receptivity so that we feel it is the energy flowing through us that accomplishes what needs to be done. We feel guided, supported, protected, and nourished within this joyful flow. We sometimes forget that we are allowed to feel this way all the time. Lower frequency vibrations are not bad in a moral sense, but they are bad in the sense that they simply don't feel good. Still, they have a purpose, which is to alert us to the fact that we are blocking out the higher frequency vibrations that we need to function well. They are a call for healing ourselves from within. The key to our healing lies in remembering that it is our birthright to feel good and that feeling good is the essence of our true nature. When we are receiving and sending out good vibrations, we are in the flow. When we are not, we can begin to raise our vibration by seeking out people, places, and situations that vibrate at a higher frequency. Whether we need to go on retreat or just call a friend who makes us laugh, seeking out those good vibrations and basking in them is a sacred and loving practice that returns us, time and again, to the joyful flow of the universe.

You Create Your World

You create your world! No other concept possesses the power that this idea does. Think about it? The power to change your world rests within yourself – within your mind!

Thought-creation is a fact of reality, all realities. This physical reality however, would often have you believe otherwise. When you believe that your fate is in the hands of people and things that are beyond your control, you lose that fundamental power given to you: the power to create. You make it that much easier for others to manipulate and change your world into what they want, instead of changing your world into what you want. Remember! You have a right to create your own world.

That right to create your own world was a gift to you from divine powers – divine powers, we might add – who cherish that right themselves. They would not think of relinquishing their power of self-creation and neither should you. Except, every time you feel that a particular situation is out of your hands, then that is what you are doing: relinquishing your power of creation and your ability to change the situation.
To reclaim back your creative power involves taking two steps, changing your belief, and learning how to control the consciousness you possess. Doing both will take time. However, the sooner you begin, the sooner you will reap the benefits of deliberate reality-creation.
To begin, you must shift from the belief that you live in a world you can’t control, to a belief that you live in a world you can control. Along with this new belief, you must come to understand that the high-tech reality controlling device that you seek is your own consciousness. Your consciousness is the tool given to you by the divine that will enable you to change and shape your reality.
Learning how to control that consciousness is the next step in the process. Good reality-control comes from within, not without. An uncontrolled consciousness can be like a wild, untamed animal. This untamed animal gets driven by many sources to do the things it does, like emotions, needs, and desires. All these factors play a part in controlling and directing your consciousness toward deliberate reality creation. Except, in an uncontrolled state, your consciousness roams freely, like a wild beast. When a particular factor overwhelms the beast, that factor becomes the new director of the beast’s world. This haphazard direction of consciousness is what you want to avoid. Your consciousness’s driving forces must all be tamed and shown how they can work together to obtain what each needs and wants...READ MORE...

The Nature of the Archetypes

Dreams and myths are constellations of archetypal images. They are not free compositions by an artist who plans them for artistic or informational effects. Dreams and myths happen to human beings. The archetype speaks through us. It is a presence and a possibility of "significance." The ancients called them "gods" and "goddesses."

What then is an archetype? Jung discovered that humans have a "preconscious psychic disposition that enables a (man) to react in a human manner." These potentials for creation are actualized when they enter consciousness as images. There is a very important distinction between the "unconscious, pre- existent disposition" and the "archetypal image." The archetype may emerge into consciousness in myriads of variations. To put it another way, there are a very few basic archetypes or patterns which exist at the unconscious level, but there are an infinite variety of specific images which point back to these few patterns. Since these potentials for significance are not under conscious control, we may tend to fear them and deny their existence through repression. This has been a marked tendency in Modern Man, the man created by the French Revolution, the man who seeks to lead a life that is totally rational and under conscious control.

Where do the archetypes come from? In his earlier work, Jung tried to link the archetypes to heredity and regarded them as instinctual. We are born with these patterns which structure our imagination and make it distinctly human. Archetypes are thus very closely linked to our bodies. In his later work, Jung was convinced that the archetypes are psychoid, that is, "they shape matter (nature) as well as mind (psyche)" (Houston Smith, Forgotten Truth, 40). In other words, archetypes are elemental forces which play a vital role in the creation of the world and of the human mind itself. The ancients called them elemental spirits How do archetypes operate? Jung found the archetypal patterns and images in every culture and in every time period of human history. They behaved according to the same laws in all cases. He postulated the Universal Unconscious to account for this fact. We humans do not have separate, personal unconscious minds. We share a single Universal Unconscious. Mind is rooted in the Unconscious just as a tree is rooted in the ground. Imagine the Universal Unconscious as a cosmic computer.

Our minds are subdirectories of the root directory. If we look in our personal "work areas," we find much material that is unique to our historical experience--could only have happened to us--but it is shaped according to universal patterns. If we humans have the courage to seek the source to which our "account" belongs, we begin to discover ever more impersonal and universal patterns. The directories of the cosmic computer to which we can gain access are filled with the myths of the human species...READ MORE...

Queen's £38 Million a Year Offshore Windfarm Windfall - Because She Owns the Seabed
