'Mental illness is at an all-time high, with 40 million Americans affected, according to reports emanating from organized psychiatry . But just how accurate is this account? As you will see, people seeking help from the mental health industry are often misdiagnosed, wrongfully treated, and abused. Others are deceptively lured to psychiatric facilities, or even kidnapped. No matter how they arrive, though, once they are there, inmates lose all freedoms and are forced to undergo dangerous but sanctioned procedures, such as electro convulsive therapy and treatment with powerful drugs, that can leave them emotionally, mentally, and physically marked for life. Some psychiatric patients are physically and sexually abused. Millions more are told that they need harmful medications, such as Prozac and Ritalin, but are not told of the seriously damaging side effects of these. Add to all this a mammoth insurance fraud--which we all pay for--and what we have, in sum, is the dark side of psychiatry. Millions of individuals are being grievously harmed by the mental health profession, and it's time that we as a society faced this.' Read more...

That night, in my evening visualisation, I was visited by the Lemurian. I awaited the moment where he granted me communion before asking him what the object that had been found was. Immediately my vision became a black space. There was nothing below me or around me. I was floating in nothingness. Ahead of me I gleaned a source of light. Towards the light I found myself heading. Suddenly, I was aware of being in some type of tunnel, though I did not know where it was or where it was heading.
I entered a tiny cavern and became aware of a shadow being standing over me. It was of an immense size. If I had showed fear I would have lost the connection, so I warded off the urge to be scared by trying to imagine myself as the being.
In that instance the being was gone and I was alone. Ahead of me I spied a silver doorway in an alcove of the cavern. I wandered over to the doorway and searched the cavern side for the opening mechanism. The door swung open.
Beyond the door was another cavern, filled with many different artifacts which I knew to be from the first civilisation.
I wandered over to the first podium I came to and reached over to pick up a square box like object.
Then the vision was gone .... there was a feeling like being pulled from behind me and I was back into my manifest suit in an instance.
I opened my eyes and gazed into the eyes of my friend, Akrah. He was back. “My friend, come. Follow me now. There is something you must see.”
He led me along a narrow and winding passageway, past the shanty town dwellings which were home to the fish people. The stench of fish oil was unbearable. Along litter strewn paths he led me until we reached the shore.
“Look!” He pointed to the heavens.
I followed the direction of his pointing hand and saw it. The planetoid hung huge on the horizon ... its silvery glow reflected off the sea. The demon world had arrived! The prophecy had been fulfilled.
“The time is now short”, he began, “the time of chaos is now upon us. Our sister world will break orbit with our world in the next decade. Already the ecological balance of our world is lost. The planetoids magnetic field has started to influence the orbit of our world. Soon chaos will be unleashed. The cult of Belial is prepared, we are not. The cult of Belial wished this reality on our world. It is part of their plan. My friend, there is nothing we can do but wait. The surface of our world will be reaped once more. We must venture to far places quickly to let others know of what is occurring here.” (Extract taken from "The Chronicles Of Ezra" by Matthew James
As long as the attention of the creator of any thought form, great or small, is turned towards it, that magnetic link persists, the thought form is vitalized, and its work carried on. When the work has been accomplished, and the thought-form has served its purpose, every creator, consciously or unconsciously, turns his attention elsewhere, and his thought form disintegrates. Hence the occult significance of all the processes occultly involved in sight, can be seen.
As long as the eye of the Creator is upon that which is created, just so long does it persist; let the Creator withdraw "the light of his countenance" and the death of the thought form ensues, for vitality or energy follows the line of the eye. When, therefore, a man, in meditation, considers his work and builds his thought form for service, he is occultly looking, and consequently energizing; he begins to use the third eye in its secondary aspect.
The third or spiritual eye has several functions. Amongst others, it is the organ of illumination, the unveiled eye of the soul, through which light and illumination comes into the mind, and thus the entire lower life becomes irradiated. It is also the organ through which pours the directing energy which streams out from the conscious creating adept to the instruments of service, his thought-forms.
The little evolved do not, of course, employ the third eye for the stimulating of their thought-forms. The energy used by them in the majority of cases originates in the solar plexus, and works in two directions, either via the organs of generation, or through the physical eyes. In many people these three points - the lower organs, the solar plexus, and the physical eyes - form a triangle of force, around which the stream of energy flows before going out to the objectivised thought form. In the aspirant, and the man who is intellectual, the triangle may be from the solar plexus, to the throat centre and thence to the eyes.
Later, as the aspirant grows in knowledge and purity of motive, the triangle of energy will have the heart for its lowest point instead of the solar plexus, and the third eye will begin to do its work, though as yet very imperfectly. Just as long as the "Eye" is directed to the created form, the current of force will be transmitted to it, and the more one-pointed the man may be the more this energy will be centralized and effective. (Alice A Bailey)
'Behind the smoke, rubble and unending drama of human tragedy in the hapless Caribbean country, a drama is in full play for control of what geophysicists believe may be one of the world’s richest zones for hydrocarbons-oil and gas outside the Middle East, possibly orders of magnitude greater than that of nearby Venezuela.'
If another form of scanner doesn't arrive in the next few months, then this assumption is wrong. But, 'they' are up to something, and something big ... 'their' agenda has been speeded up in recent weeks. This hints at absolute urgency to attain a stepping stone at an allotted time. The main 'gripe' here is the blaming of Al Qaeda ... when Al Qeada is nothing more than 'the big threat' that is used as scare tactics, to get joe public to jump up and down screaming 'something must be done'! These 'security leaks' about imminent attacks are part and parcel of the same thing. Its a mind control.
Its the ways and means to force joe public into accepting technology and loss of freedom they wouldn't normally accept if there wasn't a 'threat' to their lives. Sinister agencies have created so called 'invisible threats' which have been sold to joe public ... joe public is then bombarded on a daily basis with reinforcement of these threats. Classic brainwashing. Classic deception ...
But an operation by MI5 has uncovered evidence that Al Qaeda is planning a new stage in its terror campaign by inserting ‘surgical bombs’ inside people for the first time. Security services believe the move has been prompted by the recent introduction at airports of body scanners, which are designed to catch terrorists before they board flights.
It is understood MI5 became aware of the threat after observing increasingly vocal internet ‘chatter’ on Arab websites this year. The warning comes in the wake of the failed attempt by London-educated Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab to blow up an airliner approaching
One security source said: ‘If the terrorists are talking about this, we need to be ready and do all we can to counter the threat.’ A leading source added that male bombers would have the explosive secreted near their appendix or in their buttocks, while females would have the material placed inside their breasts in the same way as figure-enhancing implants.
Experts said the explosive PETN (Pentaerythritol Tetranitrate) would be placed in a plastic sachet inside the bomber’s body before the wound was stitched up like a normal operation incision and allowed to heal. A shaped charge of 8oz of PETN can penetrate five inches of armour and would easily blow a large hole in an airliner.
Security sources said the explosives would be detonated by the bomber using a hypodermic syringe to inject TATP (Triacetone Triperoxide) through their skin into the explosives sachet.
PETN – the main ingredient of Semtex plastic explosive – was used by Richard Reid, the British Al Qaeda shoe-bomber, when he unsuccessfully tried to blow up American Airlines Flight 63 from
A Spiritual Guide is said to be an intelligence, a method of allowing individuals, (who are caught up in the soap opera of their earthy existence), an understanding and an informational stream that will not only allow them to survive, but to follow the pathway that could be described as the quickest way home.
Guides are believed to come in many shapes and forms, from the physical guide who might be your parents, to the intuitive guide who might be working etherically, astrally or mentally, or even on a soul level. The guide's function is said to learn by the interrelation of experience with the individual whom they have chosen to guide. A guide, therefore, (choosing to manifest more mentally and astrally), might take several lifetimes to guide an individual through the various lessons that need to be learnt in Matter during the process of evolution and during the process that the contractual pattern has brought, usually by ties of love. Since there are millions of sub-planes and planes on the inner planes, it therefore follows that there are many different types of guides, some very evolved and some not so. Simply because an individual doesn't wear a physical overcoat it doesn't always mean that they are evolved, even though they might maintain that they are.
Guides are said to have to be trained, they don't suddenly manifest the experiences that are possibly necessary to guide the individual. Therefore more experienced guides will take under their wings less experienced guides and so you have on the inner planes what you have on the outer, that is apprenticeships. As the individual physically down here evolves and has a capacity to handle and hold more energy, so they will attract more evolved guides that will allow them to participate in a richer ritual that life then brings. In a planetary sense, this is the spiritual hierarchy in his many forms, and since time is on one level an illusion, (particularly as you leave the third dimension), it therefore follows that you have a spiritual hierarchy of the past, the future and the present, and the spiritual hierarchy of other solar systems as well as our own.

Football financier Keith Harris has been approached by wealthy investors to broker a takeover of Manchester United. Manchester United's Supporters' Trust has held meetings with influential club supporters interested in exploring the options for a change of ownership.
And Harris says that the time has come for supporters to buy the club back from the Glazer family.
"You sense that the momentum is gathering and this time these fans truly mean it," Harris told BBC Sport. "I think they are saying that enough is enough, there is too much gearing on this football club and it is unhealthy."
Harris, the head of merchant bank Seymour Pierce, has been involved in four Premier League club takeovers and has long been critical of United's debt that earlier in January was recorded at £716m. United's recent bond issue raised £500m to ease their debts, but also provoked a furious backlash from many fans, some demanding an immediate change of ownership.
Despite the move by the Manchester United's Supporters' Trust, the Glazer family have told BBC Sport that they are here for the long-term and insisted that their interests are aligned with those of the fans. On Friday members of Manchester United's Supporters' Trust met with "super-rich" and "influential" investors, with lifelong United fan Harris at the centre of the discussions.
Harris declined to name any of the people who have approached him, identifying them only as 'The Red Knights'. (Daily Mail)

The writing is based on a spirit named Ezra who is a scribe of ancient Atlantis. It follows his initiation into the priesthood of Atlantis and his realisations of self. Contained in the writings are records of his philosophies and adventures along with many of the meditations and visualisations practised in the initiations. The writing I sense is automatic in much of its content. The spirit Ezra compares ancient Atlantis with modern day and the writing attempts to undercover many of the truths and philosophies desperately needed in today’s hectic world. Within the writings is an unproven account of the fall of Atlantis; a hint toward those responsible and why it happened. The writing begins in the modern day; the first part being very confusing and very ‘biblical’ in its script. But then the writing leads into the philosophy of The Tree Of Life before heading off deep into the distant past. There we then meet Ezra who is a naive student of the mystical arts. This is where the story really begins; we are with Ezra through all the twists and turns of his enlightenment and beyond. The writing then gradually heads back full circle to modern day and focuses on all the implications of the truth behind mankind’s pre-history as revealed by the spirit Ezra. The writing may be deemed as purely fictional, the spirit Ezra imaginary; but we can only wonder if the picture of Atlantis painted by the writing is indeed the truth or near to it. The visualisations and meditations described vividly in the writing are intended as actual meditations to be tried and experienced. (Soulfodder Press 2001)
We were to be a seed. A tiny atom that would over eons reproduce itself a million times over. Each cell containing the simple structure of a teacher and twelve students. A guardian and twelve arch-guardians. The structure would develop into an apparent shape made of globes of knowledge. Each globe would be interconnected and each globe would be under the control/rulership of a guardian.
When I visualised myself looking down at the floor of the great hall, at all the interconnected groups with their concentric outer rings, I had the distinct impression of gazing at the roots of a tiny tree. A living tree. A live tree. A sapling.
It was a mighty task. We spent several years in the hall of records perfecting the thought projection techniques; nurturing the structure; making sense of it all. Time was irrelevant though as if we existed in a vacuum - an empty space comprised of the fabrics of the universe itself. Few of us would venture out of the halls; when we did it was by way of projections for the hall of records was sealed form the outside world. Its food supply nil, so volunteers had to venture out on a regular basis to obtain simple supplies. Thus we lived on a diet of fish and fruits obtained from the hillsides and shorelines of the temple isle.
We thus lived simply. The reports of the advancement of the technology of the outside world no longer bothered us; apart from a small minority within the group. Over the early years a tolerance was developed toward the disobedience of a few members in the group. They were offered the opportunity to leave on more than one occasion. It was an understandable thing, for within the structure were all human experiences and emotions. Every conceivable experience, so far, was contained within the structure.

CAPE CANAVERAL — President Barack Obama will ask Congress to extend International Space Station operations through at least 2020 but abandon NASA's current plans to return U.S. astronauts to the moon, administration and NASA officials said Wednesday.
NASA since 2004 has invested $9 billion in developing the Constellation program's Ares I and Ares V rockets and the Apollo-style Orion crew capsule for missions to the moon, Mars and, in the event no commercial means becomes available, the International Space Station. This is particularly surprising not only because of the worldwide space rush (with both private companies and sovereign governments pumping out new hardware at an astonishing rate) but also because we were told the LCROSS bombing mission (which was meant to detect water ice beneath the permafrost) was the first step in building bases on the Moon. And if you remember, the exopolitical community cried foul in the weeks leading up to the launch: The NASA moon bombing, a component of the LCROSS mission, may also trigger conflict with known extraterrestrial civilizations on the moon as reported on the moon in witnessed statements by U.S. astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong, and in witnessed statements to NSA (National Security Agency) photos and documents regarding an extraterrestrial base on the dark side of the moon.
I obviously can't corroborate any of that, but one thing is for certain- to everyone watching, the LCROSS mission was a total dud. It very much looked as if the rocket was disabled and disarmed well before it struck the surface. As Richard Hoagland wrote: No One ... anywhere on Earth -- from the most psyched amateur to the professionals at the largest terrestrial observatories, even to the Hubble Space Telescope itself in close Earth orbit -- none of these folks or instruments saw ANYTHING actually hit the surface of the south pole of the Moon!

'As part of stringent measures to beef up airport security, US authorities may use an Israeli-made mind-reading scanner that allegedly predicts whether a passenger is a potential threat or not. The Transportation and Safety Administration (TSA) and the Homeland Security are considering the instalment of a controversial mind-reading system, that was recently developed by the Israeli-based WeCU Technologies, in all American airports, AP reported on Thursday. The device, which functions by blending high computer technology and behavioural psychology, is essentially designed to "get inside the evildoers head" without the subject's knowledge and prevent him or her from placing the lives of fellow travellers in jeopardy.'

The gripe might be with 3G Mobile (or more than likely with shitty Windows Explorer 8 which also won't let me cut and paste text directly into a post. Which is another gripe in itself)... but whatever the cause is ... it's truly been winding me up in recent weeks. In the past I'd been able to upload images of up to 3MB (or more) relatively easily. There was always some delay whilst the upload took place. But in recent weeks this is now impossible.
All images to be uploaded are now having to be compressed to less than 100kb in order for them to appear in the blog post. Anything of a bigger size and the upload box remains on the screen indefinitely. Until I give up trying to upload the photo. There are posts where an image was planned, where I gave up in the end, even with an image of 50kb or less!

When I next opened my physical eyes, the hall which had been empty and haunting was now filled with thousands of souls; of every race imaginable. The others - the chosen - had come. It was an amazing sight. Ten years earlier I would not have thought it possible for all those thousands of souls to arrive by thought projection alone. It would have seemed impossible to my un-initiated ears. But believe me it is possible and it was exactly how it was done. We had learnt the ancients way of travelling. There WAS no need for the technology developed by the first civilisation. The elders were truthful. I could understand now why they were so adamant their ways were correct. The second civilisation had become lazy by being reliant of technology which did everything for them. The power of the mind and the consciousness, it was driven by, was a powerful piece of technology in itself. A technology developed by the Lemurian scientists. A technology devised by truly clever souls. Scientists responsible for the physical form and its functions. A technology to exist within this vibrational realm. A technology which has functions and mysteries which the Belialians have kept from all who are reliant on the technology in this realm ...
And in the future it all stood to become lost. Lost due to the selfishness of the power seeking Belialians. We, the chosen, would be unable to prevent universal intention. For it was intention of the source to inflict a payback on mankind. A payback designed to teach mankind a mechanism unique to the manifest plane.

All actions return on a circle

Before there is any fundamental social or economic change men must begin to understand their relationship to God and to one another as common heirs to the universal resource that is sufficient for all. They must give up some of their erroneous ideas about their "rights." They must learn that they cannot possess and lock up that which belongs to God without themselves suffering the effects of that sequestration.
The poor man is not the greatest sufferer in this concentration of wealth, for he has not concentrated his faith in material things and chained his soul to them. Those who are rich in the things of this world are by their dependence on those things binding themselves to material things and are in material darkness.
Every thought of personal possession must be dropped out of mind before men can come into the realization of the invisible supply. They cannot possess money, houses, or land selfishly, because they cannot possess the universal ideas for which these symbols stand. No man can possess any idea as his own permanently. He may possess its material symbol for a little time on the plane of phenomena, but it is such riches that "moth and rust consume, and where thieves break through and steal."
'Troops under United Nations command have opened fire on crowds of hungry Haitians seeking food, an ominous sign of impending confrontation between the people of the earthquake-wracked country and the armed forces dispatched there under the auspices of the imperialist powers. On Monday, Uruguayan troops, part of the UN peacekeeping force deployed here since 2004, fired rubber bullets at people who crowded around food trucks, eventually pulling out and leaving sacks of rice to be fought over. The next day, Brazilian troops proceeded more aggressively, using pepper spray and tear gas to hold off a crowd seeking food at a tent camp on the grounds of the devastated presidential palace. People ran from the spray coughing and with their eyes streaming. Two tanks were brought up to menace the crowds when they began to reform, although Fernando Soares, a Brazilian army colonel, told the press: “They’re not violent, just desperate. They just want to eat.” One soldier loaded a shotgun as the crowd watched, but did not fire. “They treat us like animals, they beat us, but we are hungry people,” one Haitian, Muller Bellegarde, told an American reporter.'

"The orb then chose to speak to us. It was sad at the time of misery which was to come upon us. It made no apologies. It merely talked to us as if we were children; for in truth we were; and explained we would be rescued after a time of high adventure. An adventure that would take us across many oceans; would make us see many things; taste all the seventeen fears; come to terms with being human trapped on the manifest plane. Then would all meet up once more and discuss with the teacher what we had seen and where we had been. We would all soon forget the road and the life we would have. We would be the lost children of the one. The legacy. The chosen for want of a better word. The children of the shadow - the cult of Belial - would endeavour to dilute and damn our words; would force the facets of mankind into major hardship and declare us as evil. The cult of Belial would become the house of god in many different forms and our way would be forgotten. But through time we would rest and hide and wait for the time of light. The time when the black cloud would leave the central sun and we would all remember again. WE would be the legacy. We would be a structure of living thoughts for all of mankind to read should there be a need. We would become a mystical enigma. A school of thought shrouded in doubt and fear and initiation. We would be there as guardians and guides for scholars of the mysteries who would come in search of the truth. And all the while the word of god under the guise of Belial would deny mankind the truth and introduce falsehood to mislead." (Extract taken from 'The Chronicles Of Ezra' written by Matthew James )
The human body evolved to fall asleep soon after the descent of night’s curtain and to wake with the appearance of the dawn. Sleep cycles were governed by patterns of light and darkness for thousands of years, meaning that for much of history, humanity has enjoyed nine of more hours of sleep each night. Our bodies are naturally encoded to respond to light and dark and sleeping with the rhythms of Mother Nature. In the present, artificial light has changed the way we schedule our day-to-day lives, and most of us slumber for less than seven hours at a stretch. It is possible, however, to come back to natural sleeping cycles by making a few small changes. When our bodies and minds are attuned to the world’s natural rhythms, we feel calmer, more centered, and more energetic while awake. Sleep is more satisfying because we afford ourselves more than enough time for restoration and rejuvenation.
Our reliance on indoor lighting further compounds our disassociation from the natural cycles of light and darkness that would otherwise preside over our sleep. You can mimic the passage of the day by changing the quality of the light. Sleeping without heavy drapery or shades is best so you can wake up with the sun. If sleeping by a window without a curtain is not an option, a dawn simulator lamp imitates the sun by growing steadily brighter with the coming of the height of morning.
You will likely discover that changing your sleep patterns to be in sync with the daily cycle of light and darkness is easy and that you feel more alive when your sleeping and waking rhythms are in alignment to those of the earth. Nature’s own phases will be your guide to wellness, granting you more waking hours in the summertime when you will benefit greatly from spending time outside and ensuring you get plenty of sleep in the winter when you likely need it most.

The Tree Of Life is a mystical concept within the Kabbalah which is used to understand the nature of God and the manner in which He created the world out of nothing. The Kabbalists developed this concept into a full model of reality, using the tree to depict a "map" of Creation. Some people believe the tree of life of Kabbalah corresponds to the Tree of Life mentioned in Genesis 2:9. The kabbalistic tree, which consists of ten Sephiroth, the ten "enumerations" or "emanations" of God, consists of three "pillars": The left side of the tree, the "female side", is considered to be more destructive than the right side, the "male side". Gevurah, for example, stands for strength and discipline, while her male counterpart, Chesed, stands for love and mercy. The "centre pillar" of the tree does not have any polarity, and no gender is given to it.
We are so addicted to looking outside ourselves that we have lost access to our inner being almost completely. We are terrified to look inward, because our culture has given us no idea of what we will find. We may even think that if we do, we will be in danger of madness. This is one of the last and most resourceful ploys of ego to prevent us from discovering our real nature.
Although the brotherhood of Masonry appears to be relatively new, it is in reality the oldest continuous network on the planet, dating back many thousands of years, beginning when stones were first dressed. Masonry today has a generally sinister reputation, because the people suspect that this powerful brotherhood has been manipulating and exploiting them. However, the average Mason has never been ‘in the know’ and is, therefore, merely a member of a social club. Nevertheless, the higher-ups have indeed had their hand in creation on this planet on a large scale for a long time … The Masons are there, perpetually hidden behind the scenes, leaving clues to their existence as a brotherhood, some of which are evident yet still not seen.

Freemasonry is a secret fraternal order that has existed for hundreds, arguably thousands, of years and is now operating in most every country in the world. Masonry promotes itself as a philanthropic club for men of morals and they perpetuate this image through members of the first three “Blue degrees.” 97% of all Masons fall into this category and they are often upstanding citizens, pillars of the community who truly are charitable and benevolent. However, the higher degrees, the inner-circle of World Freemasonry, use the society’s global influence to advance their control. ... read more ...
How well do we communicate with others? Often, when we are interacting with others, our attention in both speaking and listening is focused on meeting our own needs.
Our communication skills improve when we can open to be aware of the needs of the other person. When we listen, we can release the filters that serve our own needs for security and receive the message with our compassionate heart. And when we speak, we can choose words that the listener is able to receive. True communication happens when we harmonize with the other individual.
"So when you are listening to somebody, completely, attentively, then you are listening not only to the words, but also to the feeling of what is being conveyed, to the whole of it, not part of it."-- Jiddu Krishnamurti
If we instead seek to filter distractions, than we can be like prospectors panning for gold. We learn to filter when we are children as we learn about the world around us. At first every leaf on the ground is a reason to stop and investigate. But as we learn where to focus our attention, the rest becomes background. We don’t cut ourselves off from the world, we merely shift our focus.
As humans, we don’t always know what is good for us. Sometimes what appears to be a negative situation contains a gem of wisdom that leads to our highest growth. Rather than focusing our thoughts on what we want to keep out of our experience, we may want to turn the light of our attention to the good we’d like to create while leaving room for something better. By doing this, we allow space for the wisdom of the universe to work its magic on our behalf. If we trust the universe, we know that good is present even if it doesn’t look good on the surface. When we shift our focus this way, we actually attract those things into our lives, and the rest falls away without the effort of filtering. By practicing the art of focus, we invest our attention and energy into making our lives a positive experience.
Wayne Rooney's dramatic stoppage-time header sent Manchester United into the Carling Cup final and wrecked
But Rooney, United's man of the moment, demonstrated once more that he is in the form of his life by heading Ryan Giggs's cross past City keeper Shay Given to send Old Trafford wild and set up a final meeting with Aston Villa on 28 February.
For City, it was a grim and heartbreaking echo of their Premier League defeat at Old Trafford earlier this season when Michael Owen's last-gasp goal gave United a 4-3 win. Roberto Mancini's side showed admirable composure in the cauldron as the battle unfolded, and Tevez and Micah Richards brought fine saves from Edwin van der Sar as they went in search of the goal that would have put them at the gates of Wembley.

Using Servants Of The Light tarot.
Another look at one of the characters ... an insight to assess their possible 'prior knowledge' of the disappearance; any potential involvement or insight into the situation ... 'the initial photographic assessment does suggest a many layered personality with this character. Being able to keep from the facial expression what is going on inside. A front personality masking the business of other personalities. Many sides and many involvements with this character. A fighter and a stubborn opponent. An 'element' of guilt on the surface of the photograph used for the insight; but its gone in a flash. Many secrets and confidential information has been stored deep in the grey matter with this one. A trustworthy 'messenger' (why the word messenger though?) ... it hints at a character who is a puppet or goffer. Very much under the influence of other hands. The desire for success the weakness perhaps exploited?' The insight continues with a link to the other realms ... a grey haired man expresses his anger for this character. Its weakness and its foolhardiness. It's loyalty to others. Its stone walling. These qualities could be its undoing in the end?
The five images for this character are: Four Of Spheres, ten Of Staves, Five Of Weapons, Temperance, Four Of Crescents.
The Ten Of Spheres symbolises the limited choices and limited movement this character has. The limitations in life and in the paths it can take within this mystery. Very little freedom of speech. The Four Of Spheres is the upturned Pandora's Box ... and a suggestion of a pre-awareness that the disappearance was going to occur? Some tension represented by the Five Of Weapons suggests pre-ordained plans and an agenda to follow. The character is not what it seems from the public perspective. Its been drawn in a light which suits the agenda of those who control the media & call the shots with regard to the disappearance and how the whole thing is presented to the public. Temperance suggests a healing/medical link and a clear path this character was to play within the situation. The Four Of Crescents represents symbolically the 'taking of the replica moon' ... the abduction of the child who appeared to be a replica of the original. The reason for the abduction seems to be known by this character. A replica 'abduction' or a carbon copy of a previous abduction? It seems this character knows who took the little girl ... as it was the intention all along to lure a certain individual/group to take the bait?

"Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves." -- C.G. Jung
We get clues about our unconscious programming if we watch our reactions, responses, feelings and thoughts about other people and events. Ask yourself: How do I judge or stereotype people? What pushes my buttons? What makes me angry or fearful or sad?
The outer incidents that trigger these reactions in me simply MIRROR my own nature. If I didn't have beliefs around the issues that upset me, where would my reactions come from? If I didn't have some internal reference, I wouldn't react at all.
When outer events spark a reaction, we need to look inside to explore what’s going on.

'Airline passengers will have no right to refuse to go through a full-body search scanner when the devices are introduced at Heathrow airport next week, ministers have confirmed. The option of having a full-body pat-down search instead, offered to passengers at US airports, will not be available despite warnings from the government's Equality and Human Rights Commission that the scanners, which reveal naked bodies, breach privacy rules under the Human Rights Act.'

After a full day out in the world, stories, words, images, and songs from any number of sources continue to play in our heads hours after we encounter them. Even as we lie in bed, in the quiet dark, our minds continue noisily processing all the input from our day. This can leave us feeling unsettled and harassed. It also makes it difficult to take in any new information or inspiration. Like a cluttered house that needs to be cleared if it is to have room for movement and new life, our minds need clearing if they are to be open to new information, ideas, and inspiration.
Too often, the activities we choose to help us relax only add to the clutter. Watching television, seeing a movie, reading a book, or talking to a friend all involve taking in more information. In order to really clear our minds, we need a break from mental stimulation. Activities like yoga, dancing, or taking a long walk help to draw our attention to our bodies, slowing our mental activity enough that our minds begin to settle. Deep breathing is an even simpler way to draw attention away from our mental activities. Once we are mentally relaxed, we can begin the process of clearing our minds. Most of us instinctively know what allows our minds to relax and release any unnecessary clutter. It may be meditation or time spent staring at the stars. Whatever it is, these exercises feel like a cool, cleansing bath for the brain and leave our minds feeling clear and open.
Setting aside time to clear our minds once a day creates a ritual that becomes second nature over time. Our minds will begin to settle with less effort the more we practice. Ultimately, the practice of clearing our minds allows us to be increasingly more open so that we can perceive the world as the fresh offering it is, free of yesterday’s mental clutter.
"Next landing and then room preceding the Dormitory, -- intrigued by apparent activity in doorway. EMF meter, held by --, registered a high reading at door between first room and dormitory. A cross design was noted on window in dormitory. High EMF readings were also detected throughout Dormitory room. Repetition of same findings were found at same localities when later revisited. Especially high readings were detected in far end of Dormitory in locality of bed.
An inspection of the inexplicable cross marking on the Dormitory window indicated that some unknown substance had been used to create the cross and an attempt to replicate the cross pattern on the window, by drawing one on the window with finger pressure, failed to make any impression on the window."

Supporters of the couple will also launch 1,000 glowing paper lanterns into the night sky in Britain, Portugal and the US to coincide with the sad anniversary. About 180 guests are expected to attend the McCanns' £150-a-head dinner, raffle and auction at Kensington Roof Gardens in west London.
It is understood that those invited include Sir Richard Branson, who owns the exclusive venue, Harry Potter author JK Rowling and the couple's millionaire backer Brian Kennedy.
Half the money raised will go to the McCanns' fund to find Madeleine, and the other half will be split between the charities Missing People and Missing Children Europe. Nearly £2 million was raised for Madeleine's Fund in the first 10 months after the little girl went missing from Praia da Luz in Portugal in May 2007. But the initial surge of donations dried up and the McCanns, both 41, from Rothley, Leicestershire, spent hundreds of thousands of pounds hiring a series of private detectives to continue the search for their daughter.
McCann family spokesman Clarence Mitchell stressed that there was no "crisis" in the fund, which currently stands at about £500,000. He said: "The directors of the fund felt it was prudent to maintain the fund. But even if the fund were to run dry, it doesn't mean the search stops."
Mr Mitchell said Wednesday evening's fund-raiser would be attended primarily by the couple's friends and long-term supporters.
The paper lanterns will be launched at 7.30pm British time from about 20 different locations, including Praia da Luz, Rothley and Mrs McCann's hometown of Liverpool. (Liverpool Echo)
