Enoch & the Watchers: The Real Story of Angels & Demons

New Dawn Magazine: In 2002 the British newspaper The Sunday Telegraph reported that the Vatican had banned the veneration of those angels who do not appear in the authorised texts of the Bible. This was an attempt to counter the influence of unnamed New Age groups who were allegedly recruiting new members within the Roman Catholic Church. In future, prayers were only to be directed to the three archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael who are mentioned in the Bible. According to the apocryphal and banned Book of Enoch these were the angelic beings responsible for binding the wicked fallen angels or Watchers who had transgressed God’s law. The news report said that the early Church had excluded the book, attributed to the Old Testament prophet and patriarch Enoch, from the authorised version of the Bible because it described these fallen angels and their activities.

Who are the Watchers or fallen angels and why was the early Church and the modern Vatican so concerned about them? ... read more>>>...

Spell Breaker

"Begone o’ weary spells
This place, this person ... be tired of thy silly games
Begone ... cease thy mischief at once
From this place, thy presence hast been withdrawn
Take with ye thy selfish avarice and bitter shame
Begone o’ nameless ones ... the spell cast has now been broken
Wither the will of they who summoned ye ... depart this place" - Matthew James

The Black Moon

The Black Moon is calculated from several factors. The main factor being the lunar apogee--the spot where the Moon reaches its maximum distance from the Earth. The calculations that are formed produce an 8-year and 10-month cycle around the zodiac, or 40 per year. (Corner Stone Astrology)

The Black Moon is not a physical body or object and is not the dark phase of the Moon as many assume. Rather it is more like an energy vortex. Its position is on the Moon’s orbital path or elliptic at the point furthest from the earth ie it is the apogee of the Moon’s orbit, or that point furthest away from the earth in the Moon’s orbit. The Black Moon, or Lunar Apogee, travels along the zodiac at approximately 40 degrees per year. She spends around 9 months in each sign and has a 9 year orbit through the full zodiac. (New Dawn Astrology)

Ritual - Expression of Will, Art and Creativity

Real Magick: Most of our lives involve traditions, regular observances. These might relate to annual or seasonal holiday, it might just be meeting a friend every year at a particular time to go shopping, or have a beer and catch up. The main thing these informal activities do is to provide a comfort, a richness, a regular rhythm within our lives.

Within the Wiccan religion, we also have ritual. But, this is ritual that not only relates to seasonal and holiday observances, but that can also be celebratory,
transitional, energy working, spell working, divinatory or deeply moving interaction with those forces we value in our spiritual lives.

Why do you do ritual? You do ritual because you need to. Mainstream religion does not provide for it, so we have chosen to reclaim and create a religion that does. Ritual is a combination of reaching out to those powers, claiming powers from our Gods, making changes within our selves and our world, and creating our world rather than simply bathing in its occurrences.

It is both an expression of our will, our world view and an understanding that we are obligated to participate in creating that world and its events. What precisely is ritual?...read more>>>...

The Incredible Truth About Time

Science Focus: Time: it rules our lives, and we all wish we had more of it. Businesses make money out of it, and scientists can measure it with astonishing accuracy. Earlier this year, American researchers unveiled an atomic clock accurate to better than one second since the Big Bang 14 billion years ago.

But what, exactly, is time? Despite its familiarity, its ineffability has defied even the greatest thinkers. Over 1,600 years ago the philosopher Augustine of Hippo admitted defeat with words that still resonate: “If no-one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know.” Yet according to theoretical physicist Lee Smolin, the time has come to grapple with this ancient conundrum: “Understanding the nature of time is the single most important problem facing science,” he says...read more>>>...

UFO or secret fighter jet? The mysterious triangular craft pictured flying over Texas

Daily Mail: It has baffled aviation experts and UFO spotters alike. This mysterious triangle shaped craft has been spotted flying high in the sky over Texas. Yet nobody has been able to identify the mystery craft - or even rule out the possibility it is a UFO.Expert believe they could be classified military craft.

'Classified programs have been exposed in all sorts of ways - for example, the A-12 Blackbird was disclosed under a degree of pressure,' Bill Sweetman of Aviation Week said. 'It's not merely logical to expect that numerous classified aircraft programs exist: it's almost a necessity.'The team analysed the pictures and believe they are real. 'Three of us here - myself, Graham Warwick and Guy Norris - concur that the photos show something real. 'The photos tell us more about what the mysterious stranger isn't than what it is....read more>>>...

Mysticism: Nature or Nurture?

Spiral Nature: No spiritual development begins without that person having a mystical experience,” claimed my friend Hans in recent conversation. We had been discussing mysticism and he made a few points that made me pause. He continued, “Mystical experience connects a person to the higher states of being. Without this, no one make any serious progress on the spiritual path.” I thought this was a rather provocative statement and asked him to clarify. He said that only once someone has tasted the ultimate can they really begin to direct themselves and their actions towards it. Until then it is like trying to create a trail with no guide or point of reference in sight. I must admit I was taken aback by such a frank assertion, one he was quite adamant was universal. Additionally, I take seriously Aleister Crowley’s warning about the ways mysticism can delude a person and have thus always been suspicious of it. I pointed out how Crowley noted that mysticism was all subjective and lacked any kind of objectivity. Hans countered that this is wrong and that all true mysticism connects to a universal higher reality to which all humans share access. Humans, he claimed, were “wired” for these mystical states. He then pointed to all the great religions and mystics and said they all went up different paths to the same mountain peak...read more>>>...

Strange Coincidence? - Malaysian Airlines Plane Replica Stored at Ben Gurion Airport

S.O.T.T: By now you've probably heard about the "duplicate" Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-2H6ER. Based on the data at Planespotters.net it appears that there is a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-2H6ER being stored at Tel Aviv airport.

The missing plane had a tail number of 9M-MRO. The one at Tel Aviv has tail number 9M-MRI. Christopher Bollyn appears to have been the first to write about this latest "conspiracy", suggesting that the plane at Tel Aviv is a "duplicate" that may be used at some point in the future to carry out a "terrorist attack" masquerading as the missing Malaysia airlines plane. But this is pure speculation...read more>>>...

The Spirit of a Place

Daily Om: From time immemorial, the hands of men and women have built sites guided by both the earth’s life force and benevolent beings of light. It is because of this guidance that the sites we deem sacred have long served as repositories of wisdom, energy, and illumination that can be accessed by all. The needs that inspire seekers to converge upon sites known to be sacred vary by individual. Some crave spiritual fulfillment above all else, while others hope to draw upon a site’s energy for the purpose of enlightenment, healing, or deep meditation, awareness and knowledge of information long gone.

Sacred sites can appear insignificant to those who close themselves off from the notion of a living earth. But sites can provide us with a link to a unified consciousness that involves the living and the dead, infinite cultures, the physical plane, and the spiritual world. When we look beyond well-known sites like Stonehenge, we discover energetically active sites such as the Iron Age fogou caves of Cornwall, England, or the pyramids of Meroe in the Sudan. Similarly, it is easy to imagine that hallowed places exist only in remote or exotic locales. Yet many of the most richly vital sites are easily accessible, and visiting these lesser-known sites can be a profoundly moving experience. One such site, Serpent Mound in Ohio, was thought to be created by the ancient Adena peoples nearly 1,000 years ago to align with the summer and winter solstices. Its precise purpose remains unclear, but many who visit the site conclude that it was meant to be a conduit through which cosmic energy could flow into the earth...read more>>>...

Now Thailand says its satellites have spotted '300 floating objects' in the southern Indian Ocean hunt for wreckage from flight MH370

Daily Mail: A Thai satellite has detected more than 300 floating objects in the southern Indian Ocean. The objects range from two to 15 metres in length and are scattered across an area about 2,700km south-west of Perth. It is believed the objects, discovered by Thailand's Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency, could be related to missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

The images from Thailand are the fifth set from satellites to show potential debris within the remote part of the Indian Ocean, following other sightings by U.S, Australian, Chinese and French satellites. Japan has now also said it provided Malaysia with four satellite images taken Wednesday showing about 10 objects that might be debris from the plane, with the largest measuring about 4 metres by 8 metres.

The objects were located about 1,560 miles southwest of Perth, Japan's Cabinet Intelligence and Research Office said. The findings came hours after the Australian Maritime Safety Authority called off today's air search due to bad weather and poor visibility...read more>>>...

A lucid dream is a dream in which you know you are dreaming. Typically this happens when the dreamer experiences something strange, and when they stop to question their reality, they realize they are in a dream. Lucid dreams happen naturally on occasion, although some people may have them naturally more often than others. The definition of lucid dreaming may be simple, but there are a lot of misconceptions surrounding it...read more>>>...

Spirit Animals: Wombat Animal Totem

Wild Insights:The Wombat animal totem offers several important lessons for 21st century humans. If you've fallen victim to long work hours, you need a dose of wombat wisdom. If you've become an over-comprimiser, sacrificing your boundaries and trivializing your own needs, you definitely need wombat wisdom.

Wombat is the embodiment of the phrase 'comfort in your own skin'. Some might see wombat as stubborn, immovable... and wombat medicine would say that in order to have our needs respected, these qualities are essential. The medicine of this animal totem offers us the insight to recognize when we are pushing aside our needs, and the courage to 'dig our heels in' when we are met with adversity...read more>>>...

Psychological manipulation using cognitive dissonance

S.O.T.T: The study of psychology results is useful knowledge about how we think and act, which (we hope) can be used to make our lives better. But the knowledge gained can also be used to manipulate people. The various forms of psychological manipulation are usually subliminal, meaning they happen without the conscious awareness of their use by the target. I've reported on these techniques before, and will continue to do so.

My goal isn't to provide you with tools to do nasty things, but to make you aware of tricks that might be used on you. Also, this information is just plain interesting. So with that in mind, here is what you need to know (or might like to know) about cognitive dissonance and how it is used for psychological manipulation.

We prefer to be consistent with what we think we should be, and what we believe or say. It is uncomfortable to have hold two opposing beliefs. So when we're faced with inconsistency, we experience what psychologists call "cognitive dissonance," which is the stress resulting from holding two contradictory cognitions at once. Cognitions, in this context, can be a thoughts, attitudes, emotions, beliefs or behaviors...read more>>>...

Incredible footage of spooky UFO hovering over Gold Coast, Australia

S.O.T.T: Chevron Island local Jack Purcell shot video of what looks very much like an alien spaceship flying through the sky near his home last Thursday night. He was in the front yard with his mother and friends when they noticed the object. "We were all just sitting out the front and my mum pointed to the sky and said 'look at that colourful plane flying over'," Mr Purcell said. "Then it came to a sudden stop and was just hovering there. So I ran inside and grabbed my video camera."

The footage showed the unidentified object flashing green, red, blue and yellow colours while hovering above central Gold Coast. Residents are seen walking out on to the street to get a glimpse of the object while a police vehicle later stops to observe. Mr Purcell said the police officers had to "call it in" with a police helicopter later flying near the area. "The police chopper would fly near it but then it would turn its lights off and disappear," he said...read more>>>...

Secret Mysteries of the Sun Revealed

New Dawn Magazine: From 1209-1249 one of the worst genocides in history was conducted against the Cathars, a heretical sect in southern France. Pope Innocent III, promising gold and indulgences (the remission of punishment due for sins) in exchange for the blood of the Cathars, sent 30,000 crusaders into France to massacre the Cathars and their supporters. The Cathars were hunted, tortured, burned at the stake and savagely murdered by the Church’s hired killers. Estimates place the total number of Cathars and sympathisers murdered between 300,000 and 1,000,000 men, women and children. Throughout this bloodbath, an amazing phenomenon was witnessed. The Cathars did not express fear, anger or pain, but only bliss, despite the most horrendous atrocities committed against them. What were they on?

According to William Henry in Mary Magdalene: The Illuminator, it was a psychoactive substance produced by the brain – the Cathars had learned the techniques necessary to produce it from the secret teachings of Jesus. It was called Christos (anointing oil) by the Essenes, who passed on their secrets to Jesus from Moses, who had obtained them in Egypt from descendants of the banished Atonite priests of Akhenaton.

These teachings involve the power of the sun and the power of the spoken word and constitute what I call “the mysteries of the sun.” They were part of the Egyptian, Babylonian and Greek mysteries, and the Gnostic teachings of the early Christians and secret societies. They have been given to every culture by great adepts as means of enlightening the minds of the people and freeing them from the darkness of ignorance and superstition...read more>>>...

Missing flight MH370 'fell to 12,000ft after cabin emergency': New clues as officials suggest plane veered left because of unexpected crisis

Daily Mail: The missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 dropped to as low as 12,000ft in what could have been a cabin emergency before it disappeared from the radar, it has emerged. As the exhaustive search continues in the Indian Ocean for the missing Boeing 777-200, an official revealed the doomed passenger jet made a sharp turn over the South China Sea which ‘seemed to be intentional’.

The plane's last confirmed position, picked up by Malaysian military radar, was at 2.15am Malaysia time (1815 GMT March 7) about 200 nautical miles north-west of Malaysia's Penang island, roughly an hour after it diverted from its scheduled route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.Radar tracking shows the aircraft changed altitude after making the ‘intentional’ sharp left turn as it headed toward the Strait of Malacca, a source close to the investigation said. The anonymous official, who is not authorised to speak to the media, told CNN that flying at 12,000 feet in the heavily trafficked air corridor would’ve kept the missing jet out of sight of other aircraft.

Mary Schiavo, an aviation analyst and former inspector general for the U.S. Department of Transportation, told the international broadcaster the new information was ‘highly significant’...read more>>>...

Australian plane fails to locate any signs of wreckage on day three of the search for missing MH370 as Malaysia asks: is it a false lead?

Daily Mail: The first Australian Orion aircraft to make a sortie over the target zone for missing Flight MH370 has returned without success. Flying Officer Peter Moore, the aircraft's captain, said a combination of 'less than ideal' weather and sea conditions had closed in on the flight. He said his crew had flown through 'a thick layer of cloud from 2000 feet to 500 feet, isolate showers and sea fog above the surface'. However, the aircraft had managed to cover 100 per cent of its planned search area, with RAAF officers manning the visual observer station on board. 'However, we weren't able to find any evidence of wreckage from the missing Malaysian aircraft,' officer Moore said...read more>>>...

A Word On 'Asclepius'

Theio.com: ASKLEPIOS (or Asclepius) was the god of medicine and reputed ancestor of the Asklepiades, the ancient Greek doctors' guild. He was the son of Apollon and the Trikkaian princess Koronis. His mother died in labour and was laid out on the pyre to be consumed, but his father rescued the child, cutting him from her womb. From this he received the name Asklepios "to cut open." The boy was raised by the kentauros (centaur) Kheiron who instructed him in the art of medicine. Asklepios grew so skilled in the craft that he was able to restore the dead to life. However, because this was a crime against the natural order, Zeus destroyed him with a thunderbolt. After his death Asklepios was placed amongst the stars as the constellation Ophiochus ("the Serpent Holder")...read more>>>...

Ex-Israeli Air Security Chief Yeffet: Iran May Be Behind Jet Mystery

News Max: Iranian intelligence officials may be behind the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 earlier this month, former El Al Airlines security chief Isaac Yeffet says. "We have bad experiences with the Iranians, unfortunately.... I would not be surprised... if one of the intelligence bodies, group of Iranians, were involved," Yeffet told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV."They will land [the aircraft] in place that nobody will know. It will take years, if not more, to find what's happened with this aircraft."

Yeffet, who is also a former member of the Israeli Secret Service, believes the two passengers traveling with stolen passports may be a key part of the mystery, despite authorities discounting their culpability.
"With them [was] an Iranian man [who] said [he] was a businessman but this Iranian went to purchase three tickets for the three of them and paid cash," he said. "Who pays cash money, in the last 20 years, to purchase three tickets... For us, it's immediately a suspicious sign...read more>>>...

Two foods that sabotage your brain

S.O.T.T: Could there be a food-based cure for schizophrenia, bipolar, and depressive disorders? It is my firm conviction that diet - both what it may be deficient in as well as its potential toxicity - can cause what we label as mental illness. In medical school, we learn about the mental repercussions of nutrient deficiencies such as Beriberi (thiamin), Pellagra (niacin), and B12-deficiency induced dementia. We know that minerals such as magnesium and zinc are critical cofactors for basic functions, and that fatty acids are essential in the support of cell membrane health.

Gluten, from the Latin, "glue" is a composite of proteins comprised of gliadin and glutenin, found in wheat, with similar 'glutinous' proteins known as prolamines found in related grains such as rye (secalin), corn (zein), and barley (horedin), and casein is the name for a family of proteins in mammalian milk

How does this relate to the average patient scheduling an appointment with a psychiatrist? Is it possible that our modern, post-industrial foods - sugar, gluten, processed dairy, and genetically modified soy and corn are conspiring with nutrient deficiencies in an incendiary collaboration that will give rise to gut/brain pathology? ...read more>>>...

Bizarre skeletons unearthed in Russian mound, satyr and giant horse

S.O.T.T: If the reports are true, bizarre skeletons have been unearthed in Nevinnomyssk, Stavropol Krai, Russia that would point to a systematicfloccinaucinihilipilification of all aspects surrounding macro evolution. Russia NTV reports Stavropol archaeologists have discovered the unearthing of bizarre skeletons when opening an ancient mound. The mound first produced a strange skeleton that can be best described as "Satyr like".
Sergey Savenko, one of the discoverers of the satyr like skeleton suggested his first thought was that there was "no scientific explanation for what just unearthed". " What if the Stavropol archaeologists have discovered a previously unknown anomalous creature to mankind?" Savenko described the skeleton as having a goat like body with a human head.

Relatively close to the Satyr like skeleton the expedition accidentally unearthed the remains of a horse of epic proportions. The warhorse was of giant size with a shoulder span of almost two meters and was with honors uncharacteristic for an animal in that period.

Anna Shvyreva, Department of Nature in the Stavropol Museum stated: "A special bath shrine was dug in the ground for this horse. It was filled with grass, and horse was on its back in the tub. "

New Dawn Magazine: René Guénon’s assertion, culled from ancient esoteric sources, that in the remote past humanity’s first civilisation arose in the ice-free Arctic zone is not without geological support.According to the well-known researcher J.S. Gordon, “there is no scientific doubt that the polar ice caps have melted and reformed many, many times over and that this has always affected human society (plus animal and plant species), often catastrophically.” He points out that the great Ice Age that lasted about two million years, ending about twelve thousand years ago, was made up of thirty or so minor Ice Ages, with warm intervals of polar deglaciation in between them, each creating periods of thousands of years of temperate conditions at the poles. Any one of these warm intervals would have been hospitable to a circumpolar civilisation...read more>>>...

Focus remains on finding passengers alive says Australia as devastated relatives are given a glimmer of hope on day two of the Indian Ocean search for missing MH370

A Mere Shadow Of Its Former Self

A Light In The Darkness is still a mere shadow of its former self, as far as the number of posts being added is concerned. Since October 2013 the frequency of posts have been considerably less than in previous years. 

Those who know me personally, and who follow me on Facebook, will know the main reason why. This blog is very much following the trend of myself, as I am a mere shadow of my former self at this time. I'm 35 kg lighter than early October 2013 ... and I'm still recovering from serious Acute Necrotising Pancreatitis brought on by a gallstone becoming trapped in the common bile duct. 

Its been a long haul for me. I spent 11 weeks in hospital from 25th October 2013 to 10th January 2014 and I've been home nearly 10 weeks now. I'm still on the road to recovery, with a number of accumulated complications still hindering my progress. 

So you're sure to understand WHY the number of posts have reduced in this period. I've not had the energy or the concentration to blog really until now. I'm trying to rectify the situation, slowly. I'm still here and A Light In The Darkness WILL continue ... it will still be a place to visit to learn more about all the many facets of the word OCCULT ... Wikipedia defines 'occult' as "The occult (from the Latin word occultus "clandestine, hidden, secret") is "knowledge of the hidden". In common English usage, occult refers to "knowledge of the paranormal", as opposed to "knowledge of the measurable", usually referred to as science. The term is sometimes taken to mean knowledge that "is meant only for certain people" or that "must be kept hidden" ...

Hence A Light In The Darkness is a library that contains many articles that is 'only meant for certain people' ... that which traditionally in ages past 'must be kept hidden' ... though in this evolving age of enlightenment much of what was once occultic material, is now very much available for all to see. Hence the original  intention to collect all this occultic material together in one place. That intention is still very much in place here. 

I'm currently striving to find NEW information. New sources of material. A Light In The Darkness needs to evolve and evolve it will - Matthew James

Free of Gravity

Daily Om: 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...read more>>>...

It’s just that the momentum is way too strong to turn this thing around before something very tragic happens.

Not only is the police state ravaging lives and personal liberties, the war machine appears to be on auto pilot towards certain disaster.

I’m convinced the Controllers run on a set agenda. It can be tweaked as there are certainly adjustments that have to be made to their plans along the way, but the detonation devices are in place, much like the symbolic controlled demolition of the World Trade Center. What concerns me most is how ripe the current situation is for another major false flag. As the political-corporate-military machine continues to be exposed, they’re going to need a major distraction to re-galvanize the unwitting public for the next phase of their world takeover...read more>>>...

Boeing 777 hijackers plunged to 5,000ft and used low altitude 'terrain masking' manoeuvre practised by fighter jets to avoid radar detection

Daily Mail: Claims today that the missing Malaysian Airlines jet dropped to an altitude of 5,000ft to avoid radar lends credibility to reports by villagers that they saw bright lights and loud noises at about the time the aircraft is thought to have made a 'U-turn'. Investigators told a Malaysian newspaper that the Boeing 777 had dropped to a lower altitude to avoid ground radar, using the surrounding terrain as a sonar barrier. This type of flying is considered to be dangerous and risky, because it places tremendous pressure on the frame of the aircraft - and flying low at night without radar assistance could lead to the plane crashing into trees or mountains...read more>>>...

Feeling Our Words

Daily OM: 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...read more>>>...

"The Sleeping Dragon" --Thousands of Years of Climate Change: Definitive New Data Released

The Daily Galaxy: Using a cutting-edge research technique, UCLA researchers have reconstructed the temperature history of a region that plays a major role in determining climate around the world. The team chose the specific area examined in the study because it is Earth's warmest open ocean region and a primary source of heat and water vapor to the atmosphere. As a result, temperature changes there can influence climate not just regionally, but globally.

"The tropical Pacific ocean-atmosphere system has been called a sleeping dragon because of how it can influence climate elsewhere," said lead author Aradhna Tripati, a UCLA assistant professor in the departments of Earth, planetary and space sciences, and atmospheric and oceanic sciences.

The findings, published online Feb. 27 in the journal Nature Geoscience, will help inform scientists about the processes influencing global warming in the western tropical Pacific Ocean.

The study analyzes how much temperatures have increased in the region near Indonesia, and how ocean temperatures affect nearby tropical glaciers in Papua New Guinea and Borneo. Researchers also evaluated the accuracy of existing climate model predictions for that region. The findings illustrate that the region is very sensitive to climate change and that it has warmed considerably over the last 20,000 years, since the last ice age...read more>>>...

Conspiracy Theories on The Missing Malaysian Flight MH370

World Truth.TV: The mystery behind the missing Malaysia Airlines MH370 is thickening further as there has not been any confirmed sighting of the plane yet.

Man Loses Pulse for 45 Minutes, Wakes Up With Incredible Vision of Afterlife

World Truth.TV: A trucker in Ohio shocked hospital staff after coming back to life nearly an hour after he lost his pulse following a massive heart attack — but it’s what he claims to have seen during those tense moments that has him sure there’s an afterlife. Brian Miller, 41, was opening the lid of a container when he knew something felt wrong — he immediately called 911 and told the operator, “I’m a truck driver and I think I’m having a heart attack.” Sure enough, his main artery was completely blocked — causing what’s known as a “widow-maker” heart attack. He was rushed to a local hospital where doctors managed to revive him and clear the blockage, but after regaining consciousness and feeling the pain dissipate, he developed ventricular fibrillation, when the heart starts quivering wildly and is unable to pump blood.

“He had no heart rate, he had no blood pressure, he had no pulse,” said ICU nurse Emily Bishop. “I mean think about that.” Doctor’s performed a “strong, hard, fast CPR” and shocked Miller four times to try to revive him, but had no luck.

It was during that time that Miller said he slipped away into a celestial world, “The only thing I remember I started seeing the light, and started walking toward the light.” He described walking down a flower-lined path into white light — until he came upon his step mother, who had died recently, “She was the most beautiful thing when I seen her, it was like the first day I met her, (she) looked so happy.”...read more>>>...

A Word on 'Totem Animals'

Wikipedia: A totem is a being, object, or symbol representing an animal or plant that serves as an emblem of a group of people, such as a family, clan, group, lineage, or tribe, reminding them of their ancestry (or mythic past).In kinship and descent, if the apical ancestor of a clan is nonhuman, it is called a totem. Normally this belief is accompanied by a totemic myth.

Although the term is of Ojibwe origin in North America, totemistic beliefs are not limited to Native Americans and Aboriginal peoples in Canada. Similar totem-like beliefs have been historically present in societies throughout much of the world, including Africa, Arabia, Asia, Australia, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, and the Arctic polar region.

In modern times, some single individuals, not otherwise involved in the practice of a tribal religion, have chosen to adopt a personal spirit animal helper, which has special meaning to them, and may refer to this as a totem. This non-traditional usage of the term is prevalent in the New Age movement ...read more>>>...


Triangle UFOs fly in the face of logic

S.O.T.T: Whatever happened to good old circular flying saucers? While accounts of them continue to show up in police reports, newspapers, YouTube, etc., it seems like these days, there are more and more sightings and videos of triangular UFOs -- V-shaped, Dorito-shaped unidentified objects.

The earliest known reports of these unusual triangles can be traced to the Dutch East Indies in the late 1890s, around 10 years prior to the Wright Brothers' first powered airplane flight in 1903. Triangle UFOs were also reported from Scotland and England in 1895.

So who or what was behind the controls of these large, silent, black objects? And who, indeed, is still piloting them today?

"One of the most unusual characteristics of these things is their ability to seemingly divide from one triangle into two, or for these triangles to come together and merge into one. There are a number of reports of that. Coupled with it is the ability for these things to morph or change shape right before the witnesses' eyes," says David Marler, pictured below, who has investigated the history of triangle UFOs for over 20 years...read more>>>...

Honey and Cinnamon: Natural Cures and Health Benefits

Natural Blaze: Cinnamon and honey are both staples in many cupboards. But first off, is the honey you are eating actually honey? And are we aware of the true benefits honey and cinnamon hold? Given that honey and cinnamon can be used quite easily in many meals whether we are making breakfast foods, snacks, sauces or savory recipes, knowing the nutritional benefits you are adding to your meal might make you consider adding either or both to your next meal.

Honey contains B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid and certain amino acids. The minerals found in honey include calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and zinc.

Cinnamon is a good source of manganese, iron, calcium and fibre even in small doses. Cinnamon also contains vitamin A, and vitamin K, but daily values are not incredibly significant...read more>>>...

Have HPV vaccines caused a global epidemic of psychosomatic disorders?

Natural Blaze: Mass hysteria, conversion disorder, psychogenic illness, Munchausen by proxy, fabricated illness – all are terms familiar to those who experience new medical conditions after using the HPV vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix. Countless people have been told that their new and mysterious symptoms are psychosomatic because doctors are unable to discover what is causing their symptoms.

Do health authorities truly expect people to believe there is a global epidemic of psychosomatic disorders that just ‘happened’ to begin shortly after the implementation of HPV vaccination programs?

Why is it that families with daughters and sons who experience new medical conditions after taking Gardasil or Cervarix can visit every kind of medical specialist available without discovering the cause of their child’s symptoms? ...read more>>>...

Why the Deliberate Irradiation of Humanity and Planet Earth?

Zen  Gardner: Maybe it’s beyond most peoples’ current grasp of reality, but humanity is being steered. Ever so deftly, ever so slowly. Many will say it’s simply the banksters or corporate greed hounds, but there is much more than meets the oft unfocused, fluoridated eye. Dot connecting can be fun, as well as pretty alarming. Especially when it points to off world or to other worldly aspects of our existence. It’s at that point that many will start to shut down. Ironic, when most of the world’s religions teach that very principle. If those factors are not in someone’s equations I don’t know what to say. Maybe they haven’t researched enough. Maybe their awakening is purely on the geopolitical level. I don’t know. You have to admit, religion has done a bang up job of distancing the reality of spiritual involvement to a remote sector of the human psyche. Clever bastards. That our planet is being influenced, steered and even controlled by outside influences becomes very apparent if you’re truly looking. Religions call it evil influences. Not far off if you ask me since in this context much of this manipulation appears to be clearly anti-human, but programmed religions very effectively keep their followers and adherants disempowered and boxed in nonetheless. Ours is to rise to a much fuller understanding…and hence empowerment, outside of hierarchical constraint systems...read more>>>...

Create Completeness

Daily OM: The creative power of the universe is infinite. A single molecule's destiny is as important as the consequences of the largest supernova. Human potential is subject to this power, but because we are sentient beings, each of us is permitted to choose whether we will struggle against it or work in tandem with it. When we give voice to our desires through focused meditation or solicit the help of spirit guides, we draw upon the universe's creative power to achieve certain ends. However, because our words are not all the universe hears, the response we receive may surprise us. The discourse we establish through our appeals is a blend of speech, thought, intention, and subconscious reflection. When we ask the universe for something, the unspoken message is that what we want does not exist, and the universe accepts this as truth. Conversely, we manifest completeness through affirmations in which we declare our desires as if we have already obtained them...read more>>>...

U.S. says missing Malaysian jet could be 'act of PIRACY': Evidence shows plane changed direction and climbed to 45,000 feet 'under command of a pilot' after tracking devices were manually disabled

Daily Mail: A U.S. official has said investigators are examining the possibility that the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines jet was 'an act of piracy'.

Key evidence for 'human intervention' is that even after the plane's transponder ceased contact an hour into the flight, a routine monitoring system sent a message to a satellite indicating that the plane had turned to the west in a dramatic change of direction - before that system, too, was disabled. While theories continue to swirl round the vanishing of flight MH370, the probe has sharpened its focus on sabotage. 'Increasingly, it seems to be heading into the criminal arena,' former member of the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board Richard Healing told the Wall Street Journal. He said the latest theories 'indicate the emphasis is on determining if a hijacker or crew member diverted the plane.' New Malaysian military radar evidence shows the plane climbed to 45,000ft - 2,000ft above a Boeing 777's recommended limit - which could have knocked its passengers unconscious in a deliberate attack.

Other theories state the plane's cargo of highly flammable lithium batteries could have ignited, that it was crashed as a pilot's suicide or even that it landed safely in a secret location...read more>>>...

'Eternal & Slakeless Memories'


He is ancient magi - he knows
He serviced power within circles of mighty stones
He spoke with the gods when they descended in their silver ships
He travelled across the universe witnessing other worlds and other races
His soul has not forgotten and its slakeless memory is eternal
Those truths have never been lost ...

He witnessed the fall of mankind many times in the forgotten past
He walked the streets of a myriad of human civilisations no longer remembered by history
He bore witness to the creation of incredible feats of engineering in the distant past
He lived lives in which he ventured to other worlds and spoke with alien races
The tribes of ‘man’ are stretched out far across the galaxies - he knows
His soul has not forgotten these truths ...

Those who deceive mankind are they aware of him?
Do they care? 
For he is only one man with an imaginative mind
How can he be a threat to them?
They are the victors and human history is written to suit their whims
Who will believe one man’s version of reality? 

But he knows the truth and he has seen the depth of the rabbit hole
For centuries mankind has been plagued by evil deceit
As their creator gods fearfully herd the human sheep
And the magi ... he lives a life bedecked in obscurity
For he knows no other way ...

Through the ages, they who bear the true rights and the true claims
Vanquished by the imposters who claim the earth for themselves
But the magi knows there is no point in dwelling on what was
For being human on a physical earth is but an illusion
A universal game - nothing more and nothing less

It began as a replica of the real world ...
But that is a tale to be told another time
For the magi knows it is complicated
Just like the balls of wool tangled and twisted
Where is the start and where is the end?
He will narrate that story another time ...

Matthew James - The Art Of True Mediumship Workshop and Psychic TV Oz


"Any ‘Mediumship’ or ‘Clairvoyant’ communication is basically a form of telepathy which the entire collective of universal consciousness uses to communicate with its myriad of aspects. As human beings we exhibit but one of its aspects … but there are an endless variety of aspects within this universe. Mediumship is a basic means of communication that all these aspects display … and utilise too as a divine right. As human beings we exist in a reality where this basic form of communication has been suppressed. By utilising our physical vehicles to a greater degree we increase our ability to negate the suppression and reinstall this type of communication" … Matthew James
