The Origins of Hogmanay

While New Year's Eve is celebrated around the world, the Scots have a long rich heritage associated with this event - and have their own name for it, Hogmanay.

There are many theories about the derivation of the word "Hogmanay". The Scandinavian word for the feast preceding Yule was "Hoggo-nott" while the Flemish words (many have come into Scots) "hoog min dag" means "great love day". Hogmanay could also be traced back to the Anglo-Saxon, Haleg monath, Holy Month, or the Gaelic, oge maidne, new morning. But the most likely source seems to be the French. "Homme est né" or "Man is born" while in France the last day of the year when gifts were exchanged was "aguillaneuf" while in Normandy presents given at that time were "hoguignetes". Take your pick! 

Historians believe that we inherited the celebration from the Vikings who, coming from even further north than ourselves, paid even more attention to the passing of the shortest day. In Shetland, where the Viking influence was strongest, New Year is called Yules, from the Scandinavian more>>>...

Countdown to 2012 - T Minus 5 hours and 5 minutes  (EST )
In case this is the last opportunity in 2011 to say it (We are less than an hour away from our New Year's Eve merriment here in Canberra, ACT) let me wish each and everyone of you A HAPPY NEW YEAR and a PROSPEROUS 2012!

A Whole New World

Every book has the potential to touch the human soul deeply, arousing patterns of thought that might otherwise have lain dormant. The pleasure we derive from the written word is unique in that we must labor for it. Other forms of art provide us with stimulus and ask nothing more than our emotional response. Reading is an active pastime that requires an investment of emotion as well as our concentration and imagination. The words we read are merely a starting point for a process that takes place largely within our minds and hearts.

There are few activities as comforting, relaxing, and healthy as perusing the pages of a good piece of fiction or nonfiction. Curling up with a book and a cup of tea is one of the simplest ways we can remove ourselves from the confines of reality in order to immerse ourselves in the drama and intrigue of the unfamiliar. The pleasure of transcending reality is only one aspect of the reading experience, however. Each time we read for enjoyment, whether we prefer the fantastic nature of fiction, the empathy awakened within us by memoir, or the instructive passion of nonfiction, we create entire landscapes in our mind's eye. The books we choose provide us with the inspiration we need to accomplish such a feat, but it is our own creative reserves that empower us to use our imaginations for this unique and beautiful purpose.

The tales you lose yourself in can lead you on paths of discovery that take you out of your own life and help you see that existence can unfold in an infinite number of ways. You can learn so much from the characters and mentors who guide you from page to page. Your emotions are awakened each time you read, allowing you to become vessels of the passion that pours forth from line after line of print. Ultimately, the books you absorb—those that touch you deeply—will become a part of who you are, providing you with a rich and thrilling world within that you can revisit anytime you wish by simply closing your eyes. If you haven't read a book for pleasure lately, try and allow yourself the time—you deserve it.

2012 Doomsday? .......... Unlikely

Here's what David Icke has to say on the matter of '2012' ...

"So we are here at last: the all-singing, all-dancing, world famous, 2012. Is it the end of the world? Or the start of a new one? I say neither. Some of the 2012 hype has become just plain silly and we have probably seen nothing yet.

I have been saying since 1990 that we were in the midst of a vibrational change – the result of an information change in the waveform construct of the Universe – which would awaken humanity from its aeons of manipulated slumber. This is now clearly happening as millions upon millions of people worldwide open their minds to another view of self and reality.

I had still more confirmation over the Christmas break when I met people I have known for decades who were suddenly ‘getting it’. They were ‘No, not him or her, they’ll never get it’ people and yet the solidity of their intellectual-vibrational ‘box’ is now being breached by the spontaneous ‘insight’ that they and the world are not what they thought they were.

I have no problem, therefore, with the theme of energetic transformation bringing ‘five-sense’ transformation to human society. I just don't buy the 2012 Mayan calendar stuff, or the interpretation of it, that’s all. For me, the real significance of 2012 is that it is not 2011. But, then, it is not 2013, either.

The energetic/information change that I dubbed the 'Truth Vibrations’ in 1990 is not a one-year wonder. It has been easing its way into the information construct of our experienced reality for decades, especially since the 1980s, and it has been increasing its power and influence ever since

... There is also another potential significance for 2012 – how the Control System could exploit the hype and mystique of 2012 to make it seem like the prophecies about the end of the world in their many forms are really happening. This brings me to the gathering storm now targeting almost every aspect of human life." (David Icke Headlines)

Fluoride Supplements Shown to Have No Benefits, Only Dangers

Fluoride is being added to water supplies around the world in the name of cavity prevention and enhanced tooth health. At the same time, fluoride supplements are being recommended to those who don’t have the “luxury” of a fluoridated water supply. And while there is already a great deal of previous research available showing the ineffectiveness and dangers of fluoride, even more research has surfaced revealing its lack of more>>>>....

UFOs as Mind-Control

I believe that the powers that be are playing a game of both debunking the reality of UFOs and covertly planting evidence of their reality as a method of mass mind-control, using a technique I call "subliminal contradiction."  The UFO phenomenon has three separate yet related aspects:

1) It produces real material-world events, detectable by radar and sometimes leaving behind physical traces;
2) It is a psychic phenomenon that profoundly alters the consciousness of those exposed to it;
3) It is apparently surrounded by deception activities which mimic it, produced by human groups. 

We tend to consider these elements as mutually exclusive, but they're not; all three are explainable by demonic activity and invocation. Demons are subtle beings who can temporarily materialize themselves and various objects in this world, but who cannot remain on our material plane for very long. And the deception activities of human groups, besides being attempts to piggyback on a phenomenon that the deceivers didn't originate and can't control, may be designed not simply to imitate the "aliens" to influence mass belief, but to actually invoke them. This suggests the possibility that elements of the intelligence community and various arcane technologists are involved in Satanism.

Magicians have always known that they could produce paranormal phenomena through autosuggestion; then, in the early 20th century, as studies of the effects of propaganda in the "radio age" became better known, they reasoned that if changing their own consciousness could produce local manifestations of the preternatural, changing the consciousness of the masses could produce global ones.

According to French metaphysician René Guénon, fissures are now starting to appear in the "great wall" separating the material world from the subtle-energy dimension, home to those entities that we regard as "extra-terrestrial entities" more>>>...

The Distortion - Matthew James

Everything is a reflection. A distortion of the vision. They made this clear to me. Our senses read the distortion field in opposite and as a flip side to what is beyond our sensory field. Effectively we stand on our heads in the cosmic field and try to see it as it really is. We are in constant confusion. They were just the same until they realised. It is so simple ... child's play this computer construct. Yet we as humans make it so damn complicated. We question and are logical in all we do ... yet the universe just is. It never questions. It merely exists and accepts. It never condemns or seeks an answer. Because it knows. Because it knows it need not question. It is part of it all ... and knows its part. They knew their part and thus returned back up the evolutionary ladder. We are lost thus we flounder. We have forgotten thus we plummet and fall ... and kept falling. We cannot fall any more - MJ 30/12/11

Countdown 2012 Part 3

Countdown to 2012 - T Minus 1 day 1 hour and 18 minutes
It's New Year's Eve tomorrow ... 31.12.11 ... the final day before the 2012 threshold. 1.1.12 looms ever closer ... like the looming executioner ... with its knotted rope moving closer, touching the flesh, the soul tensing in anticipation of the knot tightening ... the human lemmings ready to leap ... the collective blind folly of The Fool. The anticipated year of change ... the wheel of fortune spinning on its axis. Awaiting that moment when ... when the sun leaves the sky for the last time ... or the mighty wave drowns the shore ... or the awesome bolt of stellar plasma energy distorts the earth into total destruction ... the condemned species awaiting its end ... the masses ruled by the psychopathic few! The few in control of all the media, all the medicines, all the food, all the water, the majority of the wealth ... pushing the human lemmings to accept the leap of death into the rising seas of global warming bullshit. Yes you read right ... bullshit. Because it is! I recently had the pleasure of witnessing 'The Lion Sleeps No More' in Sydney ... David Icke ... an old association reconnected. His words were mighty .. summing it all up perfectly. Mankind doesn't have to take all this crap anymore. The distorted lies of the religion of Saturn. The 'rewritten history' of mankind that has reprogrammed a mighty universal consciousness into believing it is a slave race to a tribe of energy vampires .... it doesn't have to be this way! Our minds and our thinking have been rewired to service the hive mind of these emotionless pirates. Part of our mind is their mind ... and like a radio our thoughts have been systematically tuned into their station ... and the process has been fortified by the poisons in our food, in our water supply, on the air waves and in the sky. And the rewiring only works if you are unaware it is there. By remembering your true vibration ... your mind is lifted to a place the pirates cannot reach. WE are REAL ... they are merely figments of this virtual machine. They are soulless and nothing more than astral servitors WE have created over the centuries by fearing ourselves. They are our fear manifest!!! WE are so much more ... the lion can up sticks and leave this place. The pirates cannot. They are fearful that the switch is going to be pulled, that we will vanish from this dimension and they will cease to exist. 2012 and beyond does represent something ...  vibrational resonances are changing. It is a fact. We must cease to be part of the lower end of the 3rd & 4th dimensional scale. We need to regain the vibrational states we once possessed in golden ages such as Atlantis ... these places are all around us ... but it is our frequencies that have dropped to a point where our senses no longer resonate on those dimensions. WE need to remember. We all need to be lions not lemmings. Leaping off the cliff top to fly ... not go crashing into the seas .... 2012 must appear like a shining doorway for us all ... its time long overdue to rid ourselves of the energy vampires. We need to recover our true faces, our true names and our true history. They have hot wired our past to suit their schemes ... what we are told is our 'past' is more than likely more of the bullshit we are fed each and every day. I for one am sick of being a mushroom ... kept in the dark and fed the smelly stuff. A lifetime of visits to the akashic records ... believe me the flowers smell really fresh ... no fragrance of the smelly stuff is on the air. It's time each and everyone one of us did the same ..........MJ  

Lemming Totem Animal

Teaches us to examine our life's lessons, utilizes surrounding resources, shows us free thinking and demonstrates courage, solitary in nature with population booms. Lemming teaches how to balance and manage our personal time with others. Is it time to be alone for introspection? Are you utilizing those around you? Are you following others? Maybe it's time to think for yourself and voice your opinion? (More Totem Animals here ....)

Dazed Lemmings Can't Bridge The Reality Gap

Ever wonder why people can't make the leap to real awareness of what's going on? Why do so few people seem to care about the dangers of the unreported radiation levels and toxic debris washing across the pacific? How is it no one but local residents raise the alarm about the horrific effects of the Gulf oil spill and the poisonous seafood landing on American dinner tables?

As the Orwellian American police state sweeps into place, the economy crumbles, and their faultless leader languishes on a Hawaiian beach, Americans are preparing to celebrate their entry into a brave new 2012 with minimal awareness of the true dangers already dissolving their health, wealth and chances for survival in an engineered conflagration of mythic proportions that is already descending on their heads. As the gap between reality and manipulated public perception grows, it may just be too big a leap for many at this point. Having been dumbed-down and unresponsive for so long, it's too much for them to take in.

Sad, but again, that's reality.

Hey, why wake up when everything's such a bummer? That's the underlying mentality. The thing is, this is a conditioned response. Overload and recoil. And it's been going on a long, long more>>>...

No Deaths from Vitamins: America's Largest Database Confirms Supplement Safety

There was not even one death caused by a vitamin supplement in 2010, according to the most recent information collected by the U.S. National Poison Data System. The new 203-page annual report of the American Association of Poison Control Centers, published online [pdf], shows zero deaths from multiple vitamins; zero deaths from any of the B vitamins; zero deaths from vitamins A, C, D, or E; and zero deaths from any other vitamin. Additionally, there were no deaths whatsoever from any amino acid or dietary mineral supplement. Three people died from non-supplement mineral poisoning: two from medical use of sodium and one from non-supplemental iron. On page 131, the AAPCC report specifically indicates that the iron fatality was not from a nutritional supplement. Fifty-seven poison centers provide coast-to-coast data for the National Poison Data System, "one of the few real-time national surveillance systems in existence, providing a model public health surveillance system for all types of exposures, public health event identification, resilience response and situational awareness tracking."

Well over half of the U.S. population takes daily nutritional supplements. Even if each of those people took only one single tablet daily, that makes 165,000,000 individual doses per day, for a total of over 60 billion doses annually. Since many persons take far more than just one single vitamin or mineral tablet, actual consumption is considerably higher, and the safety of nutritional supplements is all the more remarkable.

Over 60 billion doses of vitamin and mineral supplements per year in the USA, and not a single fatality. Not more>>>....

First World Saga

First World - by Matthew James
There is an entire epic saga encoded into this image, provided to me by an long forgotten  ancient force  that arrived  in a place a great distance to their own ... lights shining in the darkness. A highly evolved race who entered a new dimension, becoming trapped ... devolving themselves within this entombing dimension ... in order to survive .... in order to gain evolution once more to escape and return to their place in time. An entire race's memory is recorded in this image somehow. For these are the very words given to me by the kindly mind that aided me in the crafting of this primitive image. In much the same way similar minds helped to craft the artwork in our ancient world. Their collective seeds are scattered throughout our galaxy ... memories surviving a mighty calamity which rocked this side of the great void sometime before we arrived like them ... a fully evolved mind curious of this dimension... we like them have been forced to forget our lights and our heritage....

The Breath of the Universe

We can connect ourselves with a basic force of nature by focusing on the essential element of air during a wind meditation. We begin by centering ourselves on our breath. We inhale the life-giving force, feeling it fill us, and then releasing it into the world to let our breath mingle with the breath of nature. If we cannot feel the wind right now, we can recall times when the wind has sent us gifts of caresses on bare skin, ruffling our clothes and playing with our hair. We can evoke sounds carried on the wind, maybe laughter or song, or perhaps just the wind's own whispers through the trees or across the landscape of our ears. We may summon up an image of falling flowers or leaves from above, vivid colors set free with the wind's encouragement. We may envision birds drifting on unseen currents with wings unbent, or flags and banners unfurled in the breeze. The scent of a sea breeze may come to mind, or the aromas of freshly baked treats or fragrant blooms that reach us from a distance.

As these memories enliven our senses, we are feeling the vital force that surrounds and animates us. We can look to the trees to sway in time with nature's rhythm. Just as we can be soothed by the wind, we know that nature has great power. In a rush it can block out all sound, leaving us with only the beating of our hearts.

Wind can even make the inanimate dance and whirl gracefully. With a gentle sigh, the wind has carried sailors to faraway lands and balloons to great heights above. We can entrust the wind to carry our voices and best wishes out into the world, knowing it will be carried to its perfect destination. Releasing these precious offerings to its care, we remember that nature’s power is as close as our breath, and we breathe deeply once again before returning to the world around us.

A Conversation with the Two Old Dears ....

 Anyone remember the 'Two Old Dears' .... ??? For months and months there has been a refusal from there to impart any more information appertaining to MM. In the middle of 2007 they 'informed' me they would only make a connection again, with relation to this subject, when they had any more information ... well, one of the Two Old Dears has recently connected me with one of her 'chosen group' here on the earthplane. A fellow medium who is now working alongside me on several ventures. He receives information from this 'old dear' too ... and has been informed by her independently that MM is very much alive! The Two Old Dears are 'bleating' again about the situation and the lack of truth and decision making by those who could make the difference in this case. They point their joint minds towards Southampton and the Isle Of Wight. There is something of considerable importance there which links to MM. They are not saying she is in either of these localities ... but they do mention a safe haven in Western France ... and a number of meetings between notable individuals that are deciding the fate & future of MM. It's a case of when and how she is brought back into the public eye. The decision is out of the hands of her parents (K & G) ... they are powerless to decide these matters. Somehow, somewhere there are been a discussion about a 'ward of court' in the absence of her family. Someone outside of that circle decides her fate. She can speak another language ...I assume French because I can hear that language and see French sentences. She's been to a number of significant French churches/religious sites under the watchful eye of a religious woman or two .... the Two Old Dears are not talking favourably of government officials as money has talked for blind eyes to be turned - MJ 30/12/11

"Manifestation is an act of trust.

Is the FDA Trying to Take Away Your Vitamins?

What began as a murmur last year about a possible ban on thousands of dietary supplements in the U.S. has reached cacophonous levels over the last few months, as the Food and Drug Administration indicated its intent to regulate "new dietary ingredients" in current and future products. What does this mean? And, more importantly, how might it affect you and your health? This past summer, the FDA issued a draft of guidelines for complying with the New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) notification protocols. Translation: Any company or individual wishing to sell or develop a supplement containing new ingredients would have to notify the FDA of their intent. A "new" ingredient is defined as one added after 1994, when Congress passed the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA). If the FDA deems a new ingredient unsafe or unscientific, the entire supplement can be removed from the more>>>>....

Victoria, Argentina: UFOs, Bridges and the Unexplained

The passing of the years has not caused the UFO phenomenon to dwindle at all over Victoria. Quite the contrary, each passing day brings a new sighting, a new eyewitness account.

We often believe that we are going against what is commonplace in other locations, where sightings occur at given times of the year, following schedules, only every so often etc.

None of this applies here. There are no case histories that resemble those that we have heard other analysts of the phenomenon bring up. It's as though they lived here, much like any one of us. They come and go as they please, when the feel the need to do so.

Free of Gravity

As earthbound beings, humans have always had a fascination with winged creatures of all kinds. The idea of being able to spontaneously lift off from the earth and fly is so compelling to us that we invented airplanes and helicopters and myriad other flying machines in order to provide ourselves with the many gifts of being airborne. Flying high in the sky, we look down on the earth that is our home and see things from an entirely different perspective. We can see more, and we can see farther than we can when we're on the ground. As if all this weren’t enough, the out-of-this-world feeling of freedom that comes with groundlessness inspires us to want to take flight again and again.

Metaphorically, we take flight whenever we break free of the gravity that holds us to a particular way of thinking or feeling or being. We take flight mentally when we rise above our habitual ways of thinking about things and experience new insights. This is what it means to open our minds. Emotionally, we take flight when the strength of our passion exceeds the strength of our blockages; the floodgates open and we are free to feel fully. Spiritually we take flight when we locate that part of ourselves that is beyond the constraint of linear time and the world of form. It is in this place that we experience the essential boundlessness that defines the experience of flight.

Taking flight is always about freeing ourselves from form, if only temporarily. When we literally fly, in a plane or on a hang glider, we free ourselves from the strength of gravity's pull. As we open our minds and our hearts, we free ourselves from habitual patterns of thought and emotional blockages. As we remember our true nature, we free ourselves from identification with the temporary state of our physical forms. The more we stretch our wings, the clearer it becomes that taking flight is a state of grace that simply reminds us of who we really are.


Quetzalcoatl is sometimes depicted as a white man (light, the shining ones) looking nothing like the Mesoamerican people who worshipped him. Most often he is depicted as a feather serpent. Feathers represent the ascension of human consciousness back to its origins - while serpent represent human DNA or physical reality. Quetzalcoatl is a Mesoamerican deity whose name comes from the Nahuatl language and has the meaning of "feather-serpent". The worship of a feathered serpent deity is first documented in Teotihuacan in the Late Preclassic through the Early Classic period (400 BCE - 600CE) of Mesoamerican chronology - "Teotihuacan arose as a new religious center in the Mexican Highland, around the time of Christ..." -- whereafter it appears to have spread throughout Mesoamerica by the Late Classic (600 - 900 CE) (Ringle et al.). In the Postclassic period (900 - 1519 CE) the worship of the feathered serpent deity was centered in the central Mexican religious center of Cholula. It is in this period that the deity is known to have been named "Quetzalcoatl" by his Nahua followers. In the Maya area he was known as Kukulcan or Ququmatz, names that also translate as "feathered serpent" in different Mayan languages. In the era following the 16th-century Spanish Conquest a number of sources were written that describe the god "Quetzalcoatl" and relates him to a ruler of the mythico-historic city of Tollan called by the names "Ce Acatl", "Topiltzin", "Nacxitl" or "Quetzalcoatl". It is a matter of much debate among historians to which degree, or whether at all, these narratives about this legendary Toltec ruler Topiltzin Ce Acatl Quetzalcoatl describe actual historical events. Furthermore early Spanish sources written by clerics tend to identify the god-ruler "Quetzalcoatl" of these narratives with either Hernan Cortes or St. Thomas - an identification which is also a source of diversity of opinions about the nature of "Quetzalcoatl". Among the Aztecs, whose beliefs are the best-documented in the historical sources, Quetzalcoatl was related to gods of the wind, of Venus, of the dawn, of merchants and of arts, crafts and knowledge. He was also the patron god of the Aztec priesthood, of learning and knowledge. Quetzalcoatl was one of several important gods in the Aztec pantheon along with the gods Tlaloc, Tezcatlipoca and more>>>...

Will the world REALLY end on Dec 21 2012?

THE world will end in 2012 – that's what a growing number of people believe. Here Nick Pope, an expert on mysteries and conspiracy theories, takes on the doom-mongers. ON December 21, 2012, the Mayan calendar comes to an end and so, fear some, do we. To be more precise, the date marks the end of a 5,125-year cycle of this ancient calendar. Little is known of the Mayans — a Central American civilisation skilled in mathematics and astronomy — but many believe this ancient culture had secret knowledge that enabled them to predict when the world would end. Google the phrase "2012 end of the world" and you will find millions of references to this belief. There are many different and odd theories about what exactly might happen. Some believe a mysterious celestial object known as Planet X, or Nibiru, is returning to our solar system and will bring cosmic catastrophe. Others think a rapid "polar shift" — a sudden reversal of the Earth's rotation — will bring global destruction. Some theories talk of planetary or galactic alignments, others say there will be a reversal of the Earth's magnetic polarity. There are other weird theories doing the rounds about what might happen in 2012 more>>>....

Until something, anything, significant occurs after 11.59 on the 31st December 2011, I will be treating 2012 no different to all previous years. Okay, so I feel something is different. I do sense 'soulfully' that a change is occurring ... I cannot deny there is a sense of 'something' in the air. But I refuse to go overboard. 2012 is just another human year ... another human date on a human calendar. One eye will be open though to the possibility that 2012 IS that year ... the special year for awakened souls. I'm sceptical ... that's the truth.

Mobile fluoride vans to target communities that voted to remove chemical from public water supply

Back in October, the Pinellas County, Fla., Commission voted 4 - 3 to stop adding artificial fluoride chemicals to the county's municipal water supply, which serves roughly 700,000 residents. But now local health officials are suggesting that the county purchase a mobile fluoride van as an alternative, which would drive around town and administer fluoride and other conventional dental services directly to children.

Believe it or not, theSt. Petersburg Timesreports that the Pinellas County Commission will soon vote on whether or not to purchase this mobile fluoride van for $532,339 in taxpayer funds, which is more than twice the $205,000 a year the county has been spending to purchase fluoride chemicals for the water supply. The Commission had asked the county's Health and Human Services department to come up with a new way to use the $205,000 for other dental purposes, and the mobile fluoride van was their more>>>..

Health Canada Admits Studies on Cell Phones Convincing Enough To Promote Limited Use

Ignorance may or may not be bliss, but one thing is certain -- it is very profitable. At least that's what cell phone companies count on to increase their bottom line. Health Canada may not be the most reputable agency when it comes to protecting the health of Canadians, but a promising initiative from the regulating body is proposing to adopt a precautionary approach and guidelines for limited cellphone use.

Canadians are encouraged to limit cellphone call length and to text message or use a hands-free device whenever possible (to increase the distance between the cellphone and the user's head). Those under 18 should be especially careful to limit all cellphone use. Children are still growing and are therefore much more sensitive to external agents such as more>>>...

Video: Cloud Making UFO Brings Russian City to Standstill

A cloud emitting UFO has brought an entire Russian city to a standstill, overshadowing Christmas and New Year celebrations and leaving residents perplexed and seeking answers from local politicians (see video below). The event took place yesterday in the southern city of Trekhgorny, located in the Chelyabinsk region near Russia's border with Khazakstan. Reports are filtering in claiming that nervous community leaders have already relayed messages to Moscow's Science Ministry asking for clarification as to the nature of the UFO witnessed and filmed. The event is significant in that Trekhgorny, created under Soviet rule, is a closed city and non-residents are forbidden entry unless in possession of a formal invitation from friends or family, approved by local authorities.

Trekhgorny's status as a closed city is due to the fact that its main industry is the production of nuclear reactors. Consequently some are suggesting that it is possible that alien technology might be currently being reversed engineered in its midst. Ample research has been done on the topic of the high incidence of UFO and alien activity in the vicinity of nuclear reactors. Strong evidence suggests that aliens are extremely concerned with human plans to make use of nuclear energy in space.

Numerous witnesses to UFOs have described these craft's cloud making capabilities. It has also been noted that the use of these "clouds" for the purpose of camouflage by visiting aliens is particularly common in instances where the UFO is seen near military or nuclear more>>>...

The Inner Critic is that part of yourself that criticizes everything you do, doubts what you do, doesn't think you are good enough, gives you negative thoughts, is cynical, is never satisfied, and is a perfectionist. Another term for the Inner Critic is the Inner Villain that plays a plot with yourself. Once you have disengaged from the plot with other people, you then have the task of disengaging from your own Villain that is making you a Victim to yourself.

As long as you are busy blaming other people for your feelings and circumstances... Your Inner Critic remains invisible to you. So it stands to reason, that when you cease blaming others, you will then become aware of your own self blame, and inner criticism. It is your inner criticism that has you blaming others in the first place.

If you are sensitive to others blaming or criticizing you... Then you have a well developed Inner Critic. It is the Inner Critic that cares what others think about you. It is the Inner Critic that has you feeling hurt by what others say or do.

Once you have dealt with your Inner Critic, you will be less at the effect of other people, and more at cause over all areas of your life. If you have a fear of rejection... This is a fear born directly from the essence of your Inner Critic.Technically, the Inner Critic is your shadow self that is you rejecting you. It is found in the depths of your subconscious mind.

The opposite of your Inner Critic is self acceptance, or another way of saying this is your Inner Cheerleader.

When your Inner Critic is beating you up for a mistake you made, you become unsavory to other people. They feel that you are negative and perhaps toxic and therefore will be inclined to reject you. Your Inner Critic seduces the worst behavior from people as it only leaves space for a harmful act or nasty comment. You might as well have a sign on your forehead that says, beat me up, reject me.

It takes a very clear person to see this and not reject you or beat you up. This takes a lot of energy and isn't fun. So you are no fun to be around (and you can't stand yourself either.)

So now that we know what the Inner Critic is, how do we deal with it? How do we disengage from it? more>>>....

The Power Of Disengagement

For better or worse, many people have been raised to believe that communicating in an honest and open way will not get them what they want. They have learned, instead, to play mind games or go on power trips in the service of their ego’s agenda. People stuck in this outmoded and inefficient style of communication can be trying at best and downright destructive at worst. We may get caught up in thinking we have to play the same games in order to defend ourselves, but that will only lead us deeper into confusion and conflict. The best way to handle people like this is to be clear and honest with them

As with all relationships and situations in our lives, we must look within for both the source of our difficulties and the solution. Reacting to the situation by getting upset will only entrench us more deeply in the undesirable relationship. Only by disengaging, becoming still, and going within can we begin to see what has hooked us into the mess in the first place. We will most likely find unprocessed emotions that we can finally fully feel and release into the stillness we find in meditation. The more we are able to do this, the less we will be bothered by the other person’s dramas and the more we will be free to respond in a new way. In the light of our new awareness, the situation will untangle itself and we will slowly break free.

Whenever people come into our lives, they have come for a reason, to show us something about ourselves that we have not been able to see. When unhealthy people try to hook us into their patterns with mind games and power trips, we can remind ourselves that we have something to learn here and that a part of us is calling out for healing. This takes the focus off the troubling individual and puts it back on us, giving us the opportunity to change the situation from the inside out.

Today's Inspiration

“The Inner Critic makes each of us a child. As we become the child in our relationships, we lose our sense of self. We are no longer self-contained, self-respecting adults. We look to others for validation. Our self-worth is based upon their opinion of us. Thus, everyone around us becomes a mother or a father whose support and approval is desperately needed to protect us from the constant criticism of the Inner Critic.” -- Hal and Sidra Stone

We should scour the moon for ancient traces of aliens, say scientists

Hundreds of thousands of pictures of the moon will be examined for telltale signs that aliens once visited our cosmic neighbourhood if plans put forward by scientists go ahead.

Passing extraterrestrials might have left messages, scientific instruments, heaps of rubbish or evidence of mining on the dusty lunar surface that could be spotted by human telescopes and orbiting spacecraft.

Though the chances of finding the handiwork of long-gone aliens are exceptionally remote, scientists argue that a computerised search of lunar images, or a crowd-sourced analysis by amateur enthusiasts, would be cheap enough to justify given the importance of a potential discovery.

Prof Paul Davies and Robert Wagner at Arizona State University argue that images of the moon and other information collected by scientists for their research should be scoured for signs of alien intervention. The proposal aims to complement other hunts for alien life, such as theSearch for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (Seti), which draws on data from radiotelescopes to scour the heavens for messages beamed into space by alien more>>>...

Australia to ditch UK monarchy

“In the longer term, demographic change is reducing the number of Australians who feel a natural tie to the UK, and many Australians feel becoming a republic is a natural part of maturing as a country,” said the Foreign Office. Nevertheless, as the reports used by the UK Foreign Office revealed great enthusiasm among Australians to move toward a republic, the British officials tried to downgrade the prospects for Australia to ditch the monarchy. A series of UK government reports claimed that the Queen and Prince William's visits to Australia and Prince William's marriage to Catherine Middleton have destroyed the possibilities for Australia to become a republic. “Prince William's visit to Australia ... and the Royal Wedding seem to have boosted enthusiasm for royalty,” the Foreign Office said in a report. “It is clear that the debate about Australia becoming a republic is off the table for the present,” added the report. However, the Australian Republican Movement has severely criticized British officials' comments saying the British Royal Family's visits to Australia were designed in an attempt to make the House of Windsor popular among more>>>...

Vatican Throws Light on History as it Opens Secret Archives

As the confidential correspondence of popes, princes and potentates, the Vatican Secret Archives have been jealously guarded for centuries. But now 100 of the most historically significant documents held by the Vatican's Secret Archives are to go on public display in Rome - the first and probably last time that they will leave the buttressed stone walls of the tiny city state.

The priceless documents span more than a millennium, from the 8th century to modern times, and feature a cast of historical characters ranging from the Knights Templar to Galileo, Martin Luther and Henry VIII.

They are normally kept in air-conditioned, climate-controlled rooms in the Vatican's Apostolic Palace, which boasts more than 50 miles of shelves, as well as in a high-security underground bunker.

Archivists have gathered them together for an unprecedented exhibition, to be held in Rome's Capitoline Museums, to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the founding of the Secret Archives in their present more>>>...

Valuable Information

When we feel pain, our first impulse is often to eradicate it with medication. This is an understandable response, but sometimes in our hurry to get rid of pain, we forget that it is the body's way of letting us know that it needs our attention. A headache can inform us that we're hungry or stressed just as a sore throat might be telling us that we need to rest our voice. If we override these messages instead of respond to them, we risk worsening our condition. In addition, we create a feeling of disconnectedness between our minds and our bodies.

Physical pain is not the only kind of pain that lets us know our attention is needed. Emotional pain provides us with valuable information about the state of our psyche, letting us know that we have been affected by something and that we would do well to focus our awareness inward. Just as we tend to a cut on our arm by cleaning and bandaging it, we treat a broken heart by surrounding ourselves with love and support. In both cases, if we listen to our pain we will know what to do to heal ourselves. It's natural to want to resist pain, but once we understand that it is here to give us valuable information, we can relax a bit more, and take a moment to listen before we reach for medication. Sometimes this is enough to noticeably reduce the pain, because its message has been heard. Perhaps we seek to medicate pain because we fear that if we don't, it will never go away. It can be empowering to realize that, at least some of the time, it is just a matter of listening and responding.

The next time you feel pain, either physical or emotional, you might want to try listening to your own intuition about how to relieve your pain. Maybe taking a few deep breaths will put an end to that headache. Perhaps writing in your journal about hurt feelings will ease your heart. Ultimately, the message of pain is all about healing.

Just like a sunbeam can't separate itself from the sun, and a wave can't separate itself from the ocean, we can't separate ourselves from one another. We are all part of a vast sea of love, one indivisible divine mind-- Marianne Williamson

Astral Projection
Reality is created by thought projection (consciousness) into the physical gird. There are 5 subtle bodies In astral projection the conscious mind leaves the physical body and moves into the astral body to experience. In astral projection you remain attached to your physical body by a 'silver umbilical type cord'. Some people are able to see the cord when astral projecting. To astral project, as with all out-of-body experiences, one must feel totally relaxed, clothing fitting comfortable, reclining is best. Often a comforter is best over the body as the physical body sometimes gets cold when you travel out. When you astral project you are consciously aware of things you encounter while out of your physical body. Some people can astral project naturally. Others are afraid to remove their consciousness from the physical body and never learn to astral project. Astral projection (or astral travel) is an out-of-body experience achieved either awake or via lucid dreaming or deep meditation. People who say they experience astral projection often say that their spirit or astral body has left their physical body and moves in another dimension known as the spirit world or astral plane. The concept of astral projection has been around and practiced for thousands of years, dating back to ancient China. It is currently often associated with the New Age more>>>...

Feeling Our Words

Words carry energy and this gives language its power and its potential to heal or hurt. Most of us can remember a time that someone sent a word our way, and it stuck with us. It may have been the first time we received a truly accurate compliment, or the time a friend or sibling called us a name, but either way it stuck. This experience reminds us that what we say has weight and power and that being conscious means being aware of how we use words.

The more conscious we become, the more we deepen our relationship to the words we use so that we speak from a place of actually feeling what we are saying. We begin to recognize that words are not abstract, disconnected entities used only to convey meaning; they are powerful transmitters of feeling. For the next few days, you might want to practice noticing how the words you say and hear affect your body and your emotional state. Notice how the different communication styles of the people in your life make you feel. Also, watch closely to see how your own words come out and what affect they have on the people around you.

You may notice that when we speak quickly, without thinking, or rush to get our ideas across, our words don't carry the same power as when we speak slowly and confidently, allowing those receiving our words time and space to take them in. When we carefully listen to others before we speak, our words have more integrity, and when we take time to center ourselves before speaking, we truly begin to harness the power of speech. Then our words can be intelligent messengers of healing and light, transmitting deep and positive feelings to those who receive them.

Quote for Today

Look lovingly upon the present, for it holds the only things that are forever true-- A Course in Miracles

A Matter Of Priorities

We experience numerous disappointments each and every day. Our expectations go unmet, our plans are blocked by circumstance, our wishes go unfulfilled, and we discover that our lives are subject to a myriad of forces beyond our conscious control. In some cases, our response is powerful because we must invest ourselves and our resources to overcome genuine hardship. In others, our reactions are far more passionate than our circumstances likely warrant. The tension that permeates our bodies and minds when we are late for an event, interrupted at work, or sitting in traffic is not inappropriate, but it can interfere with our well-being in profound ways. When we stop worrying about relatively unimportant matters, we can be at peace and devote so much more of ourselves to what is truly important.

The small frustrations and irritations wield such power over us because they rob us of the illusion of control. But every problem is a potential teacher—a confusing situation is an opportunity to practice mindfulness, and difficult people provide us with opportunities to display compassion. There is a natural human tendency to invest copious amounts of emotional energy in minor dilemmas and frustrations in order to avoid confronting those more complex issues that are largely outside the realm of our control. The intensity of our response provides us with a temporary sense of personal power that helps us cope with challenges that might otherwise overwhelm us. But it is only when we let the little stuff go that we discover that the big stuff is not really so devastating after all.

In the stress of a singularly tense incident, differentiating between an inconsequential annoyance and a legitimate challenge can seem a monumental task. Ask yourself whether the emotions you are feeling will be as vivid in a year, a day, or even an hour. As focused as you are on this moment in time, your reward for letting go of your emotional investment may be the very happiness and harmony of being whose loss you are lamenting. Needless aggravation is seldom worth the cost it exacts. You cannot distance yourself from life's inconsistencies, irritations, and upheavals, but you can relinquish your desire for perfect order and gain peace of mind in the process.
