Demon behind the sofa: Scary face goes viral as Twitter and Facebook users spread the fear

It could just be a trick of the light. But the terrifying face in this picture could be something more sinister. At first glance, there is nothing untoward and the image has divided the internet between the people who can see it, and those who cannot. Once it is pointed out, however, it is difficult to take your eyes away from the face that suddenly becomes clear. The origins of the picture are unclear, but it's possible that it was actually created by someone hiding behind the cushion while being photographed. Or it could be something that somebody has been created using more>>>... (However it was made, it is hard to look away or get the image out of your head.If you're still struggling to spot it look to the left of the picture, underneath the cushion on the plain brown sofa.)

The Materialist World View Must Go

Werner Heisenberg, one of the founding fathers of quantum physics, once observed that history could be divided into periods according to what people of the time made of matter. In his book Physics and Philosophy, published in the early 60s, he argued that at the beginning of the 20th century we entered a new period. It was then that quantum physics threw off the materialism that dominated the natural sciences of the 19th century. Of materialism, he more>>>...

Carcinogenic Dioxin Set Free: EPA Kneels to Monsanto and Big Agriculture

Dioxin is the most toxic man-made chemical known regarding damage to health and the environment. The EPA has withheld a study about dioxin for decades in order to protect large industries that produce dioxin while manufacturing herbicides and pesticides, plastics, chlorine, bleach, and other chemicals. In addition, industrialized agriculture (Big Ag) has pressured the EPA to withhold the report because dioxin becomes concentrated in animal products like meat, eggs and dairy. The non-cancer portion of the EPA report is due out by the end of January 2012, with the cancer portion to follow at some unspecified date. Dioxin is an umbrella term for a class of super toxic chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects, liver disease, immune system damage and many other health problems. There is no safe 'threshold' dose as our bodies have zero defense against dioxin, according to health consultant Jonathan Campbell. Dioxin has a half life of over 100 years in the environment when it is below the surface or dumped in more>>>...

Clinging to the Core

There are times when our whole world seems to be falling apart around us, and we are not sure what to hold onto anymore. Sometimes our relationships crumble and sometimes it’s our physical environment. At other times, we can’t put our finger on it, but we feel as if all the walls have fallen down around us and we are standing with nothing to lean on, exposed and vulnerable. These are the times in our lives when we are given an opportunity to see where we have established our sense of identity, safety, and well-being. And while it is perfectly natural and part of our process to locate our sense of self in externals, any time those external factors shift, we have an opportunity to rediscover and move closer to our core, which is the only truly safe place to call home.

The core of our being is not affected by the shifting winds of circumstance or subject to the cycles of change that govern physical reality. It is as steady and consistent as the sun, which is why the great mystics and mystical poets often reference the sun in their odes to the self. Like the sun, there are times when our core seems to be inaccessible to us, but this is just a misperception. We know that when the sun goes behind a cloud or sets for the night, it has not disappeared but is simply temporarily out of sight. In the same way, we can trust that our inner core is always shining brightly, even when we cannot quite see it.

We can cling to this core when things around us are falling apart, knowing that an inexhaustible light shines from within ourselves. Times of external darkness can be a great gift in that they provide an opportunity to remember this inner light that shines regardless of the circumstances of our lives. When our external lives begin to come back together, we are able to lean a bit more lightly on the structures we used to call home, knowing more clearly than ever that our true home is that bright sun shining in our core.

2012 ... Report #2.

Well ... that's January 2012 just about done and dusted. Didn't it fly through the traps at a ridiculously high speed then? Wow ... we've got February 2012 commencing on Wednesday. Wonder what's hidden in those four weeks? January 2012 has been a rather odd taster for 2012. It felt different to previous months ... very much so. Clear vibrational and emotional changes were there for sensitives to feel!!! A wave of very high and 'heavy' energy approached in the early part of January 2012 and has remained ever since. There has been so much negative emotions out in the open ...bubbling up to the surface from under the carpet ... like now is the time to deal with it. Right? Right. No time like the present ... no more procrastination and no more rain checks. In order to take the leap of faith to ride the fast consciousness frequency that is touching our minds ... we need to rid ourselves of the old crap right now. In order to reach this frequency our physical bodies need to shine brighter. It means that all the elite created junk food has no longer to be consumed. Our diets must change. OK so the elite anticipated these months and they now fill our crops and our meats with similar crap ... but, here's the thing; once you optimise your body and your consciousness to accepting the incoming solar rays and the incoming upgrade signal via your DNA ... you will become impervious to the effects of the shit they dump on you. Your body will no longer vibrate within the frequency range that is effected by their shit!! Continue eating their junk and your body will remain locked in that frequency range and you'll become more and more depressed ... until eventually your body malfunctions before its time ... or you top yourself. Seriously!! Change your diet and eat foods that contain less shit than the manufactured crap and you lift your body frequency into the approaching higher end rates that are now all around us. Your DNA is a crystalline transmitter and receiver. I believe strongly that a few more DNA strands are being activated as I write this article ... the shits they feed us and pollute us with, including all the EMF signals and god knows that else in the air around us, are designed as a last ditch attempt to keep us locked in their frequency ranges. However, they are ignorant to the power of the infinite consciousness; the same consciousness that created them and their sorrowful ways. It is therefore this consciousness that shines its light brighter in our minds ... watch out ... its going to be a bumpy ride until we clear our minds of the negative toxins of the binding vibrations ... we have ALREADY succeeded, believe me ... !!! I await the hidden sights and sounds of February 2012 with bated breath  Oh yes ... I nearly forgot to mention, watch out for the next MJ.TV video on 2012, I will be discussing the items mentioned in this article. Bye for now -  Matthew James 30/1/12

A candidate for public office in any contemporary democracy may have to consider what, if anything, to do about "global warming."

In fact, a large and growing number of distinguished scientists and engineers do not agree that drastic actions on global warming are more>>>...

The Body's Consciousness: Encoding From The Soul

The body's consciousness operates as a unified whole, allowing the brain, central nervous system, and higher intuition to register what is going on in all the various parts. Without consciousness, the body would not be able to maintain itself. And yet in treating the various illnesses and disorders that the body manifests, we do not often speak of the body's consciousness or the messages that it may have for us.

To begin with, let us for the moment consider the body as a hologram of our greater consciousness via the DNA which is its formative structure and which emanates from the soul level of awareness. To be a hologram means that what exists at a lower level of functioning incorporates within itself all the features of the higher level of who we are, but within a translated form. To view the body as a hologram of consciousness allows us to see in symptoms of dysfunction or limitation, a message reflected in the very patterning of the symptom itself.

This is true in all areas of functioning, though it does not represent a one-to-one correlation between what we are conscious of and what manifests physically. Manifestation is more complex, often having to do with unconscious issues more than conscious ones. These, our DNA structure weaves into the creation of maximum and minimum levels of functioning of the body at the time of conception. In the digestive/eliminative area, physical predispositions are created via the DNA for areas of limited functioning or for specific localized problems that may arise. With respect to the digestive/eliminative system, problems with 'taking in/receiving' of nourishment, and 'releasing/giving' in the dual sense of releasing what needs to be let go of, and offering nourishment to others, are often manifested as physical symptoms. These indicate a limitation in the free-flow of life-energy through the entire embodied more>>>...I highly recommend this article. It is very informative!

Cell Phones, EMF Negatively Altering Important Regions of the Brain

A new Greek scientific study has demonstrated how frequency electromagnetic fields, namely cell phones, portable phones, WiFi, and wireless computer equipment, alter important protein changes in the brains of animals. Exposure to electromagnetic frequencies is the result of our advancing technologies, but it is important to study these effects so people know exactly what they're dealing with in order to take the necessary precautionary more>>>....

Strange Noises in the Sky: Trumpets of the Apocalypse?

From as far back as 2008, video recordings of strange and disturbing noises that seem to come from the sky have been appearing on the internet. In the last 12 months, many more of these 'strange noise' videos have been recorded and uploaded by people from many different parts of the globe.

The precise origin and meaning of this phenomenon is, as yet, unknown. Are we dealing with a cosmic version of the 'bell tolling' for life on planet earth, or is there a more mundane explanation?

Waiting for Someday

The time we are blessed with is limited and tends to be used up all too quickly. How we utilize that time is consequently one of the most important decisions we make. Yet it is far too easy to put off until tomorrow what we are dreaming of today. The hectic pace of modern existence affords us an easy out; we shelve our aspirations so we can cope more effectively with the challenges of the present, ostensibly to have more time and leisure to realize our purpose in the future. Or we tell ourselves that we will chase our dreams someday once we have accomplished other lesser goals. In truth, it is our fear that keeps us from seeking fulfillment in the here and now—because we view failure as a possibility, our reasons for delaying our inevitable success seem sound and rational. If we ask ourselves what we are really waiting for, however, we discover that there is no truly compelling reason why we should put off the pursuit of the dreams that sustain us.

When regarded as a question, "Why not now?" drains us of our power to realize our ambitions. We are so concerned with the notion that we are somehow undeserving of happiness that we cannot see that there is much we can do in the present to begin courting it. Yet when we look decisively at our existence and state, "Why not now, indeed!" we are empowered to begin changing our lives this very moment. We procrastinate for many reasons, from a perceived lack of time to a legitimate lack of self-belief, but the truth of the matter is that there is no time like the present and no time but the present. Whatever we aim to accomplish, we will achieve it more quickly and with a greater degree of efficiency when we seize the day and make the most of the resources we have at our disposal presently.

All the joy, passion, and contentment you can envision can be yours right now, rather than in some far-flung point in time. You need only remind yourself that there is nothing standing between you and fulfillment. If you decide that today is the day you will take your destiny into your hands, you will soon discover that you hold the keys of fate.

MJ.TV - "Bash-A-Psychic"

In this broadcast Matthew James discusses the current state of the psychic industry where there is the  unnecessary intimidation of some psychics by fellow psychics ...a situation Matthew James terms "Bash-A-Psychic"

Allowing And The Law Of Attraction

As we learn more about using the Law of Attraction consciously in our lives, we become masters at visualizing, affirming, and attracting what we desire. We learn how to infuse our desires with emotion and power, we learn how to raise our vibrations through joyful thoughts and align ourselves more fully with the circumstances we want to bring about.

However, most of us forget one crucial step in the process: allowing. Allowing is a multi-faceted phase in the creation process, and it can be confusing for those of us who haven't had much exposure to the concepts.

In generations past, hard work was a way of life. In some cases, it was the ONLY way of life. Like many of you, I come from a long line of hard workers: Maine lobstermen and fishermen, lighthouse keepers, factory workers, seamstresses, midwives, housekeepers, and public servants. My ancestors were proud of their ability to roll up their sleeves and put in a hard day's work to keep food on the table and clothing on their children's backs. Hard work was simply a fact of life, not something to be resented, just something that must be done, like breathing or sleeping when the sun went more>>>...

Conscious Observation

Pick up an object that you have lying around. Any mundane everyday object will do...a coffee cup or a pen for example. Hold it in your hands and allow your attention to be fully absorbed by the object. Observe it. Don’t assess it, or think about it, or study it intellectually. Just observe it for what it is. You’ll feel a sense of heightened "nowness" during this exercise. Conscious observation can really give you a feeling of "being awake". Notice how your mind quickly releases thoughts of past or future, and how different it feels to be in the moment. Conscious observation is a form of meditation. It’s subtle, but powerful. Try practicing mindfulness in this way you’ll really start to sense what mindfulness is all more>>>...

Bournemouth resident mystified by 'blue sphere shower'

A man in Dorset has been left mystified after tiny blue spheres fell from the sky into his garden. Steve Hornsby from Bournemouth said the 3cm diameter balls came raining down late on Thursday afternoon during a hail storm. He found about a dozen of the balls in his garden. He said: "[They're] difficult to pick up, I had to get a spoon and flick them into a jam jar." The Met Office said the jelly-like substance was "not meteorological". Mr Hornsby, a former aircraft engineer, said: "The sky went a really dark yellow colour. "As I walked outside to go to the garage there was an instant hail storm for a few seconds and I thought, 'what's that in the grass'?" more>>>...

Resistance Equals Persistence

We all know the feeling of being repeatedly haunted by the same issue, no matter how we try to ignore it, avoid it, or run away from it. Sometimes it seems that we can get rid of something we don’t want by simply pushing it away. Most of the time, the more we push away, the more we get pushed back. There are laws of physics and metaphysics that explain this phenomenon, which is often summed up in this pithy phrase: That which you resist persists.

Resistance tends to strengthen the energies it attempts to oppose by giving them power and energy to work against. Additionally, resistance keeps us from learning more about what we resist. In order to fully understand something, we must open to it enough to receive its energy; otherwise, we remain ignorant of its lessons. There is a Tibetan story of a monk who retreats to meditate in a cave only to be plagued by demons. He tries everything—chasing, fighting, hiding—to get the demons out of his cave, but the thing that finally works is surrender. He simply lets them have their way with him and only then do they disappear.

Now, this wisdom must be applied practically. We are not meant to get ourselves physically injured. Instead, this story speaks of how, in essence, our demons are inside of us. What plagues and pursues us on an inner level has a way of manifesting itself in our environment in the form of people, events, and issues that appear to be beyond our control. But all these external expressions are reflections of our insides, and it is inside ourselves that we can safely experiment with surrendering to what we fear and dislike. It may feel scary, and we may find ourselves in the company of a lot of resistance as we begin the process of opening to what we fear. But the more we learn to surrender, and the more the demons that plague us disappear in the process, the more courageous we will become.

Power and Spirituality

The following is an extract from an 'interesting' article that comments on the power of the ego in spirituality. It's very relevant to current  conflict issues that are in the 'Spiritual industry', not just here in Australia, but in the UK, the US and in Canada too. No doubt in other parts of the world too. It seems to be flavour of the month these days for 'bash a psychic' to be taking place in the spiritual industry where certain psychics with megalomaniac tendencies have taken it upon themselves to attack other psychics for no apparent reason other than jealousy and envy. It's rive at the moment ... and has been designed by an unknown force to keep our lights diffused. Instead of being unified as a powerful focused light ... we are all being kept seperated in our tiny little groups as a chaotic force runs amok ...ensuring we are kept from being the one, unified force that something is so fearful of us being .... it's time for this to change folks and SOON!

Here is an extract from that article: "Power over others is an expression of insecurity within one's self. Power over others is not an expression of real power at all. It is an expression of fear on the part of the person exerting their will. When one is fearless, he/she has no desire to exert his/her will over anyone else. It is only when one is in the grips of fear or insecurity, either consciously or subconsciously, that they attempt to control any given situation by exerting their will over others.Fear creates attachment, and the result is the desire for control. Control is the illusion that camouflages its self as balance. When one is truly fearless, they are the living example for balance, love and harmony"..>>>..READ MORE OF THIS ARTICLE

Today's Inspiration

The addiction to drugs, food, alcohol, etc. is nothing compared to the addiction we humans have to thinking. Sitting quietly in silence is so foreign to most of us that the mind quickly starts thinking of its "problems" simply because it feels more "natural."

Ancient Walled City, Older than Egypt's Pyramids, Unearthed off US Georgia Coast

Six hours southeast of Atlanta off the Georgia coast on Sapelo Island, archaeologists have unearthed the remains of an ancient walled city which predates the construction of Egypt's pyramids. Known as the Sapelo Shell Ring Complex, this ancient city was constructed around 2300 B.C. and featured three neighborhoods each surrounded by circular walls twenty feet in height constructed from tons of seashells. Some of the earliest pottery in North America was also found buried in the remains of this lost city.

The site is quite an enigma because at the time of its construction the Native Americans living in the area were simple hunters and gatherers who had yet to invent agriculture. Many scholars believe agriculture is a prerequisite for civilization. Did these simple tribal people somehow make the leap from hunting-and-gathering to civilization in a single bound producing not only a walled city but also the new technology of pottery without the benefit of agriculture? Or did an already civilized people arrive on the coast of Georgia from elsewhere and, if so, where did they come from and why? more>>>>...

Kundalini & Energetic Meridians: A Crystal Healing Approach

Meditation is a focusing or concentration of one’s mental energy until one has reached a perfect stillness of the mind. With practice, meditation will allow one to realize the true self. Meditation should always be done for the self. It is a wonderful tool to allow one to fully explore his or her inner consciousness. It is an opportunity to recapitulate one’s experiences and to learn and to grow from them (on a subconscious level). Meditation should be done with a full surrender to the stillness it creates.

Routine meditation (over time) has the ability to completely transform one’s outlook on life. Meditation, combined with the proper intention, can aid one in a complete spiritual evolution. Meditation will allow a person to become the pure, perfect, being of the universe that he or she was meant to more>>>...

Babies Are Born With "Intuitive Physics" Knowledge, Says Researcher

While it may appear that infants are helpless creatures that only blink, eat, cry and sleep, one University of Missouri researcher says that studies indicate infant brains come equipped with knowledge of "intuitive physics." "In the MU Developmental Cognition Lab, we study infant knowledge of the world by measuring a child's gaze when presented with different scenarios," said Kristy vanMarle, an assistant professor in the Department of Psychological Sciences in the College of Arts and Science. "We believe that infants are born with expectations about the objects around them, even though that knowledge is a skill that's never been taught. As the child develops, this knowledge is refined and eventually leads to the abilities we use as adults." more>>>...

From beginning to end, Barack Obama's State of the Union speech was replete with delusion and falsifications. His promise of building an "America that lasts" was predicated on a sentimental, but utterly disingenuous notion of selfless teamwork. The invocation of American military "heroes" and their "achievements" during nine years of waging war on Iraq as an exemplar of how to salvage his nation from economic and social catastrophe was both sickening and laughable.

"The Shining Sun"

The time comes like destiny in its finest hour
The guardians of the sacred veil sense the fresh air
The mountain way becomes shrouded in white ...
Magical, billowing, white mists of time.

The Traveller realises his eyes are not playing tricks on him
For he sees mystical figures advancing forwards
Floating above the ground ... coming nearer ...
There with open arms –beckoning–

Far across the mountain side a bright light is seen
The sunrise of another day
And the shining of a different sun lights the pathway before his eyes
The magical light being replaced then by a glowing figure ... close ahead

A smiling face of a proud and gentle man turns to look at him
A bearded, kindly face of a man from home
Who’s kindness once changed a world
He is here ... he is now there ... his light can now be felt

The Shining Man is there before the Traveller’s eyes
And he ... the Traveller ... kneels at the kind man’s feet
Then he ... The Shining Man ... touches the Traveller’s face
And whispers to him, to go with him down the glorious road ...

And he ... The Traveller ... goes ....

The Paradox of Spirit

Each of us has a spiritual self that animates our bodies and infuses our thoughts and feelings. Our language is limited to the world we know for descriptions of something that perhaps cannot be fully comprehended by the human mind. Therefore, only metaphors approach the expressions that give us a true sense of our spiritual nature. The paradox lies in opposing concepts, all of which are true at the same time. And in harmonizing the opposites, we begin to know the wonders of the spirit.

The self is not small or big but is both at the same time. Our spirit is like a drop in the ocean of spiritual energy. Although our spirit seems like a small, disconnected part of a larger whole, it is still made of the same things and can become part of the vast ocean once again. Our individual spirit seems to inhabit our bodies like a passenger in a vehicle but at the same time is not bound by our bodies. Spirits can reach across the miles to touch the heart of a loved one or expand to become one with the universe. We may feel small and perhaps insignificantly young when we look up at the stars, but we are made of the same basic elements. Perhaps looking at the stars is merely a reflection of what is going on within each atom and cell of our being. We are a universe within a universe. Our spirits are ever renewing, yet ageless and eternal. So the self is not new or old but both at once.

So our spiritual self is not small or big, new or old. We may experience life as good and bad, right and wrong, happy and sad, but this is the experience of the material world of dualities, not the truth of our spritual nature. By going within to touch the eternal and changeless energy at our center, we can go beyond the contrasting metaphors to the experience of oneness. And in that connection we can know big and small, new and old, movement and stillness. By accepting the paradox of spirit, we open ourselves to the fullness of our own being.

The ghost at the window: Dead owner 'returns to haunt' builders demolishing her beloved guesthouse

When a demolition team began work at a derelict Victorian guest house they all agreed that something didn't feel quite right. One day, they claimed, a chandelier suddenly started swinging on its own, which understandably left the burly builders feeling slightly unsettled. But it was only when one of the team took a photograph of the building that they suddenly became convinced they had not been working alone. The image appears to show the ghostly outline of a woman at the window of Meadowbank House, in Kendal, Cumbria. After researching the history of the building they realised the chilling significance of what they’d photographed. The ghostly image was an eerie likeness of Frances Grimshaw who worked at the guest house and died almost a year ago. Bizarrely, she stood for hours at that very same window taking more>>>...

"Death and The Tower"

In this first Mentoring Series video ... Matthew James discusses two of the most maligned tarot images and offers his own insights on these cards.

Wisdom Within

The soul can be likened to a great house with many rooms, each of which makes up an integral part of who we are. One of those rooms, or aspects, is what is known as the higher self, a part of us that possesses a range of perception far greater than that of the conscious mind. Your higher self is aware of both your current existence and numerous other possibilities, and cannot be altered or suppressed. It is related to your basic, innate purpose and no matter how much or how often you change, it remains constant. Some believe the higher self is the most evolved, most perfect "self" and thus can act as a guide on life's journey. In that role, it manifests itself in many ways: as images that flash in your mind inspiring ideas, as a small voice, as intuition, or as a feeling of rightness associated with certain actions.

Becoming aware of and connecting with the higher self is comparable to becoming truly aware of oneself while feeling entirely integrated into the universe. It is like being in your body while looking down at your life from a high vantage point. With such insight, you can find the answers to many questions about your own life and the infinite existence. Connecting with the higher self, however, takes dedication, discipline, and practice. You may find it difficult because old emotional wounds or negative thoughts block your connection. One technique involves becoming "level" with the higher self through visualization. Begin by sitting in a chair with adequate support for the spine. Relax and breathe deeply. When you have achieved a level of deep calm, rise out of yourself, turn, and see your seated body before you. Visualize the higher self - it may appear as a point of white light above your head. Concentrate on it and slowly move it down to your physical body, letting it envelope you until it reaches the floor. Be sure to ground yourself after doing this exercise by eating a meal, or going out in nature.

After connecting with their higher selves, many people report rediscovering their soul's purpose and feel comfortable living in accordance with it. On the other hand, it is possible to fight the higher self, which can lead to tension and lack of energy. Nonetheless, the higher self is our most open and wise "companion" in life, and a source of unadulterated insight, provided we have the perseverance to bond with it.

MJ.TV presents Mystic Switchboard part 2

This is the 2nd part of tonight's broadcast. Watch out for more Mystic Switchboard's in the near future ......

MJ.TV presents Mystic Switchboard part 1

Who's Fuel Are You?

Where's your energy going? Never mind the money, products or what have you that you are generating, what is harvesting your intention, enthusiasm, dreams and desires? Are you anywhere near in control of your life?

Why is it humanity seems to be spinning its wheels rather than progressing, while the insane scientific, military industrial complex accelerates in size and power like a monstrous metastasizing ghoulish tumor?

The answer is clearly in the question.

Whether you go for the esoteric concept that inter-dimensional or spiritual entities are ultimately behind this rapacious control system or not, clearly we're not getting anywhere toward the advancement of the human condition. Instead it's rapidly regressing. We're following a script with very little to say about it, while being bombarded with a propaganda barrage that's telling us it's a natural progression of events.
It's not. At more>>>...

Aspartame: 100 Times Sweeter Than Sugar, But is it Safe?

While recrystallizing a chemical compound (aspartylphenylalanine-methyl-ester), some of the powder spilled and got onto Schlatter's fingers. Not realizing his, he licked his fingers inadvertently and noticed the sweet taste.

Four years later, in 1969, the Journal of the American Chemical Society reported on aspartame, discussing the "accidental discovery of an organic compound with a profound sucrose (table sugar) like taste."1

Sugar-like taste is an understatement. Aspartame is 100 to 200 times sweeter than sugar, depending on concentration. But what, exactly, is this chemical sweetener?

Morning Meditation

Just before the coming of the pale rays of dawn, Mother Nature exists in a state of flux. Earth's energy is stable, free of the disordered vibrations that are a by-product of humanity's comings and goings. In these first moments of day, when the sun's golden light is only just peeking over the horizon, our animal mind remains in the land of slumber though we ourselves are awake. Deep sleep has washed away the impurities of existence that accumulated within us, so our mental, physical, and emotional potential is heightened. To meditate in this peaceful yet energetically charged in-between time is to connect with the divine in an extremely intimate fashion. We discover a new kinship with the universal life force during morning meditations because our awareness becomes a mirror for earthly consciousness—we wake as the world wakes, quietly embracing the joy of being and setting the tone for a serene, fulfilling day.

In the first glorious glow of morning, the light, air, and energy flowing around us speak in hushed tones of the activity to come. While we recognize that another day of being means becoming once again immersed in the challenges of action and reaction, we also understand that we can draw upon the unique energetic qualities of daybreak for comfort, creativity, and vigor. There is bliss in the simple knowledge that we have been given the gift of another day of existence. We are inspired by sights and sounds of the sun's gentle ascension. Birds serenade the luminosity, which grows richer by the minute. And though we may feel a residual lethargy, our vitality returns as our meditation helps us to become one with the stirring of other beings rubbing the sleep from their eyes. At the start of each day, our destiny has not yet been written, and so there is nothing we cannot do.

How we choose to meditate is less important than our choice to attune ourselves to the spirit of wakefulness that travels round the world each and every day. Even the briefest moment of quiet contemplation in the muted light of the sun can put all that is yet to come into perspective. As a consequence of our daybreak reflections, our lives are imbued with the same stability, tranquility, and increased awareness that humanity has long associated with the stillness of early morning.

Divination Vs Prediction

Divination has always been one of the most popular and widely practiced of all the occult arts. In a world so full of uncertainty the idea of getting some wise guidance from a higher power, the idea of peeking into the future and gaining advanced knowledge of what will happen, the idea of knowing the consequences of your actions in advance so that you can choose the right path - these are all very appealing notions indeed.

There a literally hundreds of different methods of divination, from examining the entrails of a recently slaughtered sheep or goat, to staring into the flames of a fire. Today, with divination at least as popular as it ever has been in the past, the most commonly used methods are astrology, tarot cards, palmistry and the Chinese I Ching.

But although more people than ever have access to some form of divination, such as newspaper horoscopes which are read by millions, there is also a greater degree of misunderstanding around as to the nature and purpose of divination than would have been the case in the past.

Most people tend to think of divination as fortune-telling, as a method of predicting what will happen to someone in the future. But actually this is an over-simplification, and it introduces a subtle but important error into the way we think about divination. Whether you perform reading yourself, or if you are just an interested person who maybe reads their horoscope, you should know that in order to gain the most possible benefits from consulting a divinatory device it is important to be aware of the nature of the information which you will more>>>...

Fukushima Cover Up Unravels: 'The Government Can No Longer Pull the Wool Over the Public’s Eyes'

The repeated failures have done more than raise concerns that some Japanese may have been exposed to unsafe levels of radiation in their food, as regrettable as that is. They have also had a corrosive effect on public confidence in the food-monitoring efforts, with a growing segment of the public and even many experts coming to believe that officials have understated or even covered up the true extent of the public health risk in order to limit both the economic damage and the size of potential compensation payments. Critics say … the government can no longer pull the wool over the public’s eyes, as they contend it has done routinely in the past. “Since the accident, the government has tried to continue its business-as-usual approach of understating the severity of the accident and insisting that it knows best,” said Mitsuhiro Fukao, an economics professor at Keio University in Tokyo who has written about the loss of trust in government. “But the people are learning from the blogs, Twitter and Facebook that the government’s food-monitoring system is simply not credible.” more>>>>....

Strongest solar storm since 2005 hitting Earth

The sun is bombarding Earth with radiation from the biggest solar storm in more than six years with more to come from the fast-moving eruption. The solar flare occurred at about 11 p.m. EST Sunday and will hit Earth with three different effects at three different times. The biggest issue is radiation, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Space Weather Prediction Center in Colorado. The radiation is mostly a concern for satellite disruptions and astronauts in space. It can cause communication problems for polar-traveling airplanes, said space weather center physicist Doug Biesecker. Radiation from Sunday's flare arrived at Earth an hour later and will likely continue through Wednesday. Levels are considered strong but other storms have been more severe. There are two higher levels of radiation on NOAA's storm scale - severe and extreme - Biesecker said. Still, this storm is the strongest for radiation since May 2005. The radiation - in the form of protons - came flying out of the sun at 93 million miles per more>>>>....

Odd Accounts and Strange Tales Orbit Around Shasta

Mt. Shasta, the Cascade peak that mesmerized John Muir, has long attracted mystics, metaphysicians and spiritualists. Now a researcher is seeking 'stories and information' for a book on Bigfoot and UFO sightings. Locals didn't find the ads, posted at the laundromat or running in the SuperSaver, to be strange at all. A number of people, in fact, reached out to Brian Wallenstein the "researcher looking to gather stories and information" for a book on Bigfoot and UFO sightings.

A woman named Rudi emailed to report that she'd seen a bright disc hovering above Mt. Shasta. She attached a photo from a ski resort snow cam that showed a luminous speck. (Credible, Wallenstein thought.)

A man named Larry recounted his own research - including telepathic communication with "them" - conducted in preparation for the day extraterrestrials would reveal themselves to earthlings. (Too out there, Wallenstein decided.) People pulled him aside to share anecdotes of mystery lights and star gates, or to whisper the names of neighbors and brothers with tales to tell.

Secondhand accounts flowed in: about the forest ranger who casually spoke of spotting a Bigfoot east of McCloud, and the deer-hunting couple from Weed who came across a bright chrome vessel on a dark mountain more>>>....

Quote for Today

Seeking is based on a fundamental assumption of incompleteness.Beyond all seeking lies the discovery of Infinite Completeness -- an undeniable recognition that nothing is missing.

Intention Set in Stone

Stone has played a role in spirituality from the very moment humanity externalized its sacred vision. Humans gave form to their devotion by scratching images of their deities into rock faces, carving holy statuary, and building stone shrines. The earliest of these were nothing more than simple piles of rocks that honored sacred places, revelations, people, and events. Following in the footsteps of this ancient tradition provides us with an simple and beautiful way to externalize our own spirituality. In your travels, you may have encountered on the sides of roads, trails, or pathways stacks of stones that look like random sculpture. Add a stone blessed with a prayer to such a mound, and your intentions merge with those who have left stones before you, empowering you all.

Associating a prayer with a particular stone alters the substance of both, and the formation of a prayer mound can balance and intensify the energy of a site. The mere act of choosing a stone can inspire mindfulness, as we lose ourselves in the moment seeking a pebble that speaks to our souls. And placing a prayer stone on a towering cairn is a meditation in patience—slowness and stillness allow us to find our stone's center of gravity so the delicate ceremonial structure before us remains intact. Be cautious, however, when you feel guided to place a prayer rock upon stone mounds you see intermittently alongside well-worn but unmarked hiking paths. Hikers often use small cairns as guide markers to ensure that those who follow in their footsteps will not lose the trail. When in doubt, begin a new prayer pile slightly further away from the path itself and consider adding a relic of some kind to help others understand its purpose.

When you mindfully place a prayer by beginning a stone heap or adding to an existing mound, your thoughts and intentions are left in the care of fate itself. The cairn of which your prayer was one part may be unintentionally knocked down or destroyed by Mother Nature's own hand. Try not to let this weigh heavily upon your spirit. The potent energy of your prayer was released by this destruction, ensuring that the purpose underlying that prayer will spread outward in the direction of the furthest reaches of the universe.

Is this life on Venus? Russian scientist claims to have seen 'scorpion' in probe photographs

A Russian scientist claims to have discovered life on Venus after analysing photographs taken by a Soviet probe that landed on the planet's surface 30 years ago. The pictures - taken by the probe Venus-13 in 1982 - have been re-examined by Leonid Ksanfomaliti of the Space Research Institute at Russia's Academy of Sciences. Ksanfomaliti said the images showed a scorpion-shaped body, a disc and a 'black flap,' which apparently moved as the probe's camera records the scene.They all 'emerge, fluctuate and disappear,' explained Ksanfomaliti, writing in the Russian journal Solar System Research magazine, according to reports. 'What if we forget about the current theories about the non-existence of life on Venus, let's boldly suggest that the objects' morphological features would allow us to say that they are living,' he more>>>...

A Word on 'Transfiguration Mediumship'

Transfiguration is in real language, the change of form. There are two forms of Transfiguration of the Medium.

Transfiguration within Spiritualism is when the Medium who has been linking with the Spirit World for many years through sincere, regular, dedicated meditation, goes into a deep altered state of awareness, becomes subservient to Spirit and allows Spirit to take control of the entranced Physical Medium's bodily functions and/or manipulation through their nervous system. The part of the Spirit World linking with the Medium will then either bring the Spirit form through the catalytic action (using the Medium as the catalyst is the only way for the ordinary person to understand) by manipulating the facial features and sometimes parts of the body or of the body itself of the Physical Medium forming it/them (face, neck, arms, hands, legs, feet, etc) into the person (or part of the person) who is allegedly dead (one who has crossed the veil) OR form a mask of a person who might be a loved one or a person known [sometimes not] to the recipient onto the face of the Physical Medium to show all there in the gathering they are not dead BUT they are still continuing their life on another vibration more>>>....
