NASA accused of cutting off live feed to hide UFO sighting

A video posted to YouTube on June 21 - claiming to show three UFOs leaving the Earth's atmosphere, and accusing NASA of deliberately cutting its feed from the Space Station - has been going viral. The video, titled "UFO Mysteries: UFOs, Angels Or Biological Creatures Seen Leaving The Earth?" is said to be footage from the livestream of NASA's International Space Station. The footage of three lights, combined with the alleged suspicious timing of camera difficulties, has many declaring we now have "definitive proof" that aliens exist. Further, many claim it proves a government coverup of a mysterious alien species.

The truth, however, may be far less exciting. In the YouTube video, a small speck of light can be seen rising from the atmosphere, followed by two more very small and faint lights, also rising away from the Earth. The feed then cuts out, with the message: "Please stand by. The High Definition Earth Viewing experiment is either switching cameras, or we are experiencing a temporary loss of signal with the International Space Station." Now, these specks very well could be some alien visitors, just leaving dinner at Roswell, but there are also alternative explanations.

The light may have been satellites, space debris, a glitch, or even glimmers of sunlight. The ISS completes an orbit of Earth every 92.91 minutes and moves at 17,100 miles (27,600km) per hour, so it is not unlikely to run into any of these things. While the ISS camera runs 24/7, it often cuts out or switches cameras, sometimes even temporarily shutting down the feed.

The new viral video surfaced approximately a week after UFO hunters claimed to find a pyramid on Mars, thus proving the planet was once inhabited. Scientists have scoffed at their claims, saying it is actually a rock that is roughly the size of a car.(S.O.T.T)

Radio Frequency Climate Manipulation Amounts To Weather Warfare

Climate engineering is a completely runaway juggernaut of total insanity. The planet's climate system is unraveling by the day as the geoengineers try frantically to control it with ever more desperate and destructive measures (which were a primary cause of the climate disintegration in the first place). As the photograph below clearly shows, powerful radio frequency transmissions have a profound effect on clouds that have been aerosolized by the jet aircraft spraying of toxic electrically conductive heavy metals.

After over 65 years of climate "intervention", very real damage has been done to the Earth's life support systems (along with countless other forms of anthropogenic destruction to the biosphere). The climate engineers are now appear to be attempting to use the very same intervention methods which caused the damage in the first place, to mitigate the harm already done. There is no sanity in this equation. The visible RF influence in the noctilucent cloud image below indicates probable evidence of project "LUCY" and project "ALAMO" at work. The ongoing radio frequency saturation in our atmosphere is extremely harmful to living organisms, including more>>>... 

This is How the Matrix Invades Your Body, Mind and Soul

Waking Times: Stress is a genuine pandemic, a full spectrum attack on the nervous and immune systems that greatly contributes to the unhealthiness and unease in our world. Few would disagree that modern life is far more stressful than it should be, and when you consider its main sources, it appears to be a built in feature of contemporary society that targets us, the masses, in order to create disharmony, debilitation, agitation, apathy and dependency. It comes at us from every angle in the matrix, and at its root is our enslavement to an economic system that guarantees eternal collective debt to a cartel of private bankers and money masters. To support this phony economy we are groomed to be good consumers and diligent workers, bred to value economic growth and material prosperity above and beyond human interests and common sense. For this we take on work we dislike and commit ourselves to being busy all the time in order to ‘make ends meet,’ all the while the fiat currencies we toil for are further debased and true prosperity stretches further out of more>>>...

Explorers of Higher Dimensions: The Power of Active Consciousness

[The following is excerpted from Active Consciousness: Awakening the Power Within by Amy L. Lansky, PhD (R.L.Ranch Press, 2011)]

"At each moment of time—the Now—you stand at the gateway to an infinite number of possible futures in higher dimensional space. This gateway is the Choice Point.

Some of these futures are more likely to occur than others. If you do nothing, one of these probable futures will play itself out in a fairly predictable, even mechanistic way.

But as a conscious being, you also have the ability to affect how the future unfolds. Your experience of this ability is the sensation of free will.

One of the ways you can exert a force upon this unfolding is to use explicit action. Another way is through the subtle force of Active Consciousness, which allows you to enable unlikely unfoldings to occur."

According to the Columbia Encyclopedia, a field is a “region throughout which a force may be exerted.” Back in the 1800s, chemist and physicist Michael Faraday developed this concept in order to explain the mysterious properties of magnets. People at the time were perplexed by the way magnets could exert instantaneous forces upon metal objects when nothing seemed to be transmitted between them. Faraday hypothesized that magnets are always emanating an influence or force; we just can’t see it. And because a magnet’s sphere of influence—its magnetic field—is ever-present, it seems to exert a force instantaneously, without any form of physical contact or obvious mode of transmission (Waking Times) more>>>...

Clearing Our System

Daily OM: In this day and age we know so much more about our relationship to food than our predecessors, and the way we eat and think about food has become almost unrecognizable to our grandparents’ generation. One example of this is our awareness of food allergies, a condition that has recently entered the collective consciousness. Most of us know someone who is allergic to such commonplace foods as wheat and dairy, and we may even be prone to such an allergy. Understanding how our bodies react to food, and making the necessary adjustments in our diet, can have a profound effect on our whole energy system, and can be the key to shifting our mind into a state of greater clarity.

When we are continuously exposed to a food that gives us an allergic reaction, we feel lethargic, foggy-headed, or as if we always have a low-grade sinus infection. Other symptoms can include nausea, digestive difficulties, skin problems, and difficulty breathing. Many of us have been fighting these symptoms our whole lives without realizing that getting relief could be as simple as cutting a particular food out of our diet. When we do, we feel as if we are waking up out of a fog, and our whole system, cleared of substances that work against it, more>>>...

"Making A Spiritual Connection" with Matthew James

This was one of the better connections caught on film ..

The Path To Real Freedom ...

Although we have been made to believe that if we let go we will end up with nothing, life itself reveals again and again the opposite that letting go is the path to real freedom.

Just as when the waves lash at the shore, the rocks suffer no damage but are sculpted and eroded into beautiful shapes, so our characters can be moulded and our rough edges worn smooth by changes.

Through weathering changes, we can learn how to develop a gentle but unshakable composure. Our confidence in ourselves grows, and becomes so much greater that goodness and compassion begin naturally to radiate out from us and bring joy to others.

That goodness is what survives death, a fundamental goodness that is in each and every one of us.

The whole of our life is a teaching of how to uncover that strong goodness, and a training toward realizing it.

The Universe Is An Ocean Of Thoughts

copyright Matthew James 2015
Its amazing how this universe works. Made up of thought energy it is definitely a generator of feelings, emotions and desires. What you think of the most really does control the flow of what happens to you in your life. The universe reacts to our perceptions each and every day. 

The more your thoughts are aimed at one particular direction the more the universe works to respond to your request. To a certain degree this statement is agreeing with the cliche known as 'the law of attraction' but it is true. 

Take for example the typical tale of one little boy who is adamant that something others see as a reality doesn't exist at all. He goes out of his way to prove he is right. He eats, breathes and sleeps his perception. And you know what? The universe provides him with the reality where his perception is correct. To him his reality is the only reality. Little does he know that it is his thought energy which has created his reality for him, by sending the experiences and the situations to him that match his perception. However, those others who he tries so desperately to expose as being false & deceptive, are living in a totally different reality to him. Because their thoughts are aimed at a different perception to the little boy, those things that the little boy now can't experience, become part of the experience they find themselves in. Their thoughts create a vortex of energy to attract to them a different experience to the little boy. Now no matter how the little boy tries he will never see the reality they exist in, and his scepticism continues. Equally, they are unable to ever satisfy the demands of the little boy because their reality is so far away from his.

And this is happening all over the world. It is a world of such diverse differences. We all think differently, no two minds interpret thoughts the same ... so you might share your life path with others on a regular basis, but know they will not see live the same as you, no matter how you try to get your point across to them.

The universe is very responsive therefore to what you are thinking right now, and it is very likely that how you are thinking or feeling in this moment is due to how you were thinking maybe a week or two ago. This is why it is essential to be responsible for your thoughts. Loose thoughts can create havoc in the universe. Thought energy is the basis of magic. Think of something with sufficient intention and it can be manifested. This is the basis of clairvoyance, a little known fact. Our minds can manifest actions and events if we go about it correctly. A competent and reputable clairvoyant is actually someone with a mind of sufficient power of intention to make things happen for their client. No don't laugh. It's true. 

It stands to reason this is possible with the universe being much like an ocean of thoughts. Like an ocean there is the ebb and flow of tides. Push those tides correctly and events can be created or prevented. An interesting notion only to you perhaps, but it has every likelihood to be in true in your reality as well as my own  - Matthew James

Accessing the World Within

Possibilities - 2nd edition Copyright Matthew James 2015
Daily OM: A guided meditation uses the sound of a person’s voice to direct you through an inner process of relaxing your body and shifting your mind’s focus. The voice may be a person in the room with you or a recording—even something downloaded from the internet—and it is generally spoken in soothing, soft tones. You may be guided to focus on aspects of your physical body, such as on your breathing, relaxing your muscles one-by-one, or on an area in need of healing. Sometimes it might involve visualizing a journey through the beauty of the natural world. Other times, you may be led to envision yourself working with light or energy, accomplishing your goals, or repeating positive thoughts in your head. Your guide may walk you through relaxation or motivation to help you change a habit, access untapped potential, or perhaps merely to find the silence within you.

Whether you are familiar with meditation or you are a beginner, being guided gives you the opportunity to benefit from the insight of others. There are numerous meditation and visualization techniques based in various spiritual philosophies and psychological applications. You may want to try several techniques to see what appeals to you the most, or just to gain a fresh more>>>...

A Validation

Hi Matthew,

I can validate your abilities to do readings, guided meditations and picture readings.

I have had several readings plus several several months on the spiritual development path. I had learnt a lot and I found the guided meditations to be enlightening.

My first reading with you (if I recall properly) was a reading from you for me as you had been recommended to me by Alex Fulford. The reading was enlightening and also very accurate. My grandmother still doesn't say much.

I do not consider you are a fake or fraudster, in fact you tell it like it is and are very accurate.

My second reading was a little different in that I had you read a picture of a lady I was/am friends with. The way you conducted the reading of the picture and the accuracy you displayed not only amazed me but actually brought my friend to tears with your accuracy. I had not known a lot of the things you had told me and only when I relayed to my friend what you had said she was silent and then we spent the next hour or so going over what you "saw" and she validated everything that you had said.

With the guided meditations you had shown me that I can do this and I have since done this but not often enough.

I am sorry that someone out there has considered that you are not the genuine article. They are obviously sceptics OR never got told what THEY wanted to hear.

Anyway keep doing what you do best Matthew,

Symbols & Psyche: Exploring Gateways to Realms of Knowledge, Power & Understanding

We live in a world filled with visual identifiers intended to convey meaningful information at a glance without the need for words.Heraldry, the distinctive symbols of noble warrior families, traces back to the Middle Ages, when grand tournaments were held with jousts between heavily-armoured knights wearing visors. Since individuals were unrecognisable in such gear, unique coats-of-arms were designed to identify the combatants to fans and foe alike. Taverns and inns, village blacksmiths, printers and publishers, all manner of craftsmen and merchants were as recognisable in villages and cities a thousand years ago, as they are in today’s hyper-illuminated metropolitan areas and quieter rural main streets.However, there is another level of symbolism that goes beyond the merely commercial, socially informative, or technologically useful.

And that is the universe of sacred symbols, whose resonance in the archetypal levels of the human psyche can cause spiritual change and expand consciousness beyond the confines of mundane reality. Symbols that serve as gateways to realms of knowledge, power, and understanding that inform and control life on earth, and, presumably, the after-death state of non-physical life as well. Symbols that can open the mind to communication with spiritual beings who welcome the opportunity to interact with human consciousness. Symbols that confirm to the aspiring student the nature of the truths he or she more>>>...

Am I A Fraud?

Here's the thing. I pride myself on HONESTY, TRUTH and INTEGRITY with the work I do. My field is one of the most heavily criticised and ridiculed. It contains fakes yes. It contains charlatans yes. But I strongly contend I am not one of them.

If I can't read for someone, or if my consultation is not up to my high standards, I give my clients their money back. It happens, but not very often. That has always been my policy.

I work hard. I go out of my way to give value for money. I have an endless stream of very satisfied clients. My work is my life and always has been. So when I get someone blatantly calling me and declaring I am a fraud and a cheat, I don't like it. It hasn't happened often in the last thirty years, so it is a rarity. But it has happened recently. 

So, what I ask ... anyone, everyone who's had a reading with me ... can you e-mail me at and let me know what your experience was like. If you think I was a fake or a fraud let me know. If you think my methods are an act and I don't genuinely connect with your lost loved ones ... let me know. 


The Right Of Freewill

All that matters is what is in our own reality. For that all there is. We should not be swayed by the perceptions and bullying of other souls. They are on their path and we are on our own. This is the equality of freewill. Freewill is not designed to be hijacked by the inner fears of others. Instead freewill is meant to be the vehicle through which our higher self drives through the life it intended in this incarnation. So often freewill is left in tatters and rags because of the bullying opinions of those who's perceptions are ruled by inner fears. What they see in others is the source of that inner fear. Their over bearing presence a result of a strong desire to eradicate that source of fear in their life. What they selfishly desire is a world where everything suits their perceptions and their desires. Sadly, that world doesn't exist. It is not a paradigm of existence on this world as no two people view the world in the same way. 

Our own reality should be the focus of our awareness. We shouldn't have the right to dictate to others what they should or should not be doing. When others fail to fall into the acceptable structure of our perception we should not call them odd, deluded or sick ... their reality is different to our own. Let others be free to make their own judgements, offer opinions yes ... but do not force people to look at the world through your eyes. Their life will have different parameters to yours. 

Next time a negative influence appears in our lives. Acknowledge the influence and look at it as a reminder that the universe is asking us to look at our lives a little more closely. Is there any validation in what they are saying? If there is ... then thank the universe for the resultant quality control we need to impose on our life. If there is no validation to the influence then blank out that influence. It is as simple as that. Do not let that negative influence affect you. Too many people become depressed or upset when a sceptical attack is unleashed on them. It is best to take a deep breath and look at what the sceptic is really saying. 'You represent a fear they have. They wish you to take that fear away for them by reacting to their hogwash'. Remember when a negative sceptic turns his attention on you, it is his problem, usually a very deep rooted one. Not yours. Do not jump into his psycho drama by giving him the time of day -Matthew James

We Fear What We Don't Understand

I don't write enough on here. My intention was always to create a forum to put my point of view across. Not in a forced way, like mine is the only way, so listen to me. Not that way at all. My intention was to express a valid view on my way of life. On my existence. On everything that has been in my reality since the emergence of the Odinic character in my life at the age of three. My perceptions and existence have been created from that point forward. Then there was the arrival of the incredible fire letter in 2004. That saved my life. Without its intervention I would not have survived the intense and difficult shamanic death and rebirth I experienced in 2013. Those outside of my perception, in a more sceptical life style will not comprehend what I say. They will be dismissive of my claims. But those who experience the same as me, and there are many, will understand. My intention is to record my existence as the scribe, here. Creating reactions in others in great. It means the human consciousness stirs out of its slumber. It is aware of those who now do things differently. Scepticism is the first attempt at the human ego to stamp out fear. Human evolution is a fearful thing. I stand at the forefront of a great wave. A shift in awareness. A new paradigm that the logical, fear driven, minds will not understand. They shall oppose and belittle. To them I am deluded. So be it as they cannot comprehend so they fear. We attack what we fear and our logical mind demands scientific explanation. It is not my right to prove, I merely provide viewpoints to create reactions. I have reactions thus minds are aware and are listening. My job next is to lead ... Matthew James  

Abracadabra! The power of spells against the forces of evil

Modern culture is dominated by science and technology, which for the most part offers an explanation for human behavior and the forces of nature. But it hasn’t always been like that. Words like “spell”, and “magic” do not have the same effect on us today as they had in the past; they are greeted with laughing and mockery, and they are linked to misleading illusionist’s tricks, or – more often – to swindlers’ scams. In the past, the role of the magician and shaman was highly respected in many cultures since these were people who were thought to control the invisible forces and interpret god’s will. Moreover, they were able to protect the king’s or the family’s power, and give stability to an empire.

Before starting with our analysis, we need to clarify the type of approach we adopted in preparing this, and other arguments, that deal with esoteric knowledge: it is a serious anthropological study, because magic, just like alchemy, divination, and complex astronomy, was historically not for entertainment or for pure amusement. It was part of the esoteric disciplines, for which knowledge wasn’t accessible to everyone but rather was passed down through generations of its practitioners.

So, what is the most common spell of all time? Abracadabra, of course! ... Read More>>>...

DARPA hopes to terraform Mars with human-engineered organisms

Mars may look like an inhospitable and barren landscape, but a new program underway at the Pentagon’s advanced research division is looking to create engineered organisms that can eventually transform the Red Planet into something more Earth-like. If humans are ever to live on Mars without being confined inside of man-made structures, the planet’s climate and surface would need to be radically altered. It features potentially dangerous planet-wide dust storms, low gravity, and its thin atmosphere, plus increased distance from the sun, makes it an especially cold place for any humans to settle – the average temperature is -50 degrees Celsius (-122 degrees Fahrenheit), according to more>>>...

How Energy Moves At Home

Copyright Matthew James 2012
Daily OM: Our living spaces can become nurturing homes for our bodies and souls when we make sure that our surroundings accurately reflect who we are as individuals and who we aspire to become. No matter how positive and creative you may be in your inner world, if your home or work surroundings are contradictory or present energetic barriers, you are likely to find it difficult to manifest all that you desire. By paying attention to the flow of energy around you, you can align your inner intentions with your outer realities to make your life a conscious act of creation.

We can look to the ancient Asian art of feng shui for guidance. Since the words “feng” and “shui” mean “wind” and “water,” you may want to walk through your home and imagine the way these elements would flow through your space. You can evaluate whether or not your home is a balanced ecosystem that would allow a plant to flourish. A straight path between doorways would make nourishing elements rush right through, while a pleasantly meandering stream would instead create a flow that nurtures more>>>...

How to Deal with Negative Sceptics

People Who are Negative Sceptics are Fear Driven

Negative sceptics are generally people who are willing to voice their opinion on something that another person has chosen to do. How we deal with someone who is a negative sceptic is entirely up to us.

We can take on board their vocal scepticism and chose to argue with them, in the end leaving you frustrated and deflated, or we can choose to not pay them much attention at all.

For the most part It is my opinion, a person who is negative and sceptical of what you are doing, is just someone who is driven by fear and it is because of their own fears that they try their hardest to change your mind and see things their way.

Ignoring the Negative Sceptics is the path of least resistance…

When you come across a negative sceptic I suggest you just ignore them, as this will be the path of least resistance. You can argue with them, clashing horns like 2 bulls but you will not accomplish anything positive by taking this more>>>...

The First Steps to become Psychic

The first step is to acknowledge that ESP exists and that it is present within you to develop. Although this might sound silly or trite, begin by telling yourself that you are psychic.

Make it a mantra that you repeat to yourself daily and often. This kind of self-talk has a scientific basis. It is now known that when a person learns something - whether it's a physical skill like wood carving or a mental exercise like memorising poetry - through repetition, his or her brain physically changes - "rewires" itself, if you will - to accommodate that task. This process of rewiring your brain for psychic ability begins with your belief in it.
"It takes time for the subconscious to be able to communicate with the conscious mind, and the best way to do this is to simply start thinking about it," "All these thoughts have a positive effect on developing your gift. Read about the subject. Knowledge will help, as you need some understanding of how things work. Adopt the policy you would take with a new hobby. Become involved in it, buy books and magazines, and look for more information on the Internet."

The Synchronicity Principle

We have some notion of a tendency of events to cluster around a moment in time in our own culture, as evidenced by folk sayings like, "Good things (or accidents) happen in threes," etc. This only exists as a superstitious kind of popular awareness. Nevertheless, it has long been evident that there is a tendency for several scientists at the same time to make the same discovery completely independently. And, in histories of science, one can observe that there is a tendency for certain ideas and inventions to crop up in different places at the same time. Or, on a more mundane level, one has been known to wonder why the most needed library book is always the one already checked out?

Although a synchronistic point of view would seem to fly in the face of "scientific method," designed to support the value of statistical truth and predict cause and effect, the principle was strongly validated by the micro-physicist, Werner Heisenberg's discovery in 1937. In the proof of his Uncertainty Principle, which still stands, Heisenberg demonstrated that, in the realm of sub-atomic particles, everything has an influence on everything else, including the perceiver's influence on what is perceived. This is another way of saying that everything that happens in a given situation at a given time is related to and participates with everything else. So, as far as we know now, there is no such thing as "scientific objectivity," statistical probabilities notwithstanding. As Jung put it:

"Every process is partially or totally interfered with by chance, so much so that under natural circumstances a course of events absolutely conforming to specific laws is almost an exception."

In his fascinating book, New Directions in the I-Ching, mathematician Larry Schoenholtz points out that there are several scientific theories that seem to validate the synchronicity theory:

"Since I have mentioned the connection of synchronicity with the better-known theories of mainstream physics, I shall mention other parallels as well. The phenomenon of radioactive decay has been particularly baffling from the causal viewpoint. The spontaneous disintegration of certain atoms through radioactive emission is an event for which modern physics cannot provide an answer"

But it is quite in keeping with a synchronistic view of things. No less a figure than the physicist Sir James Jeans says of this mystery,

"Radioactive break-up appeared to be an effect without a cause, and suggested that the ultimate laws of nature were not even causal."

If we add to the radioactivity puzzle such related puzzles as are found in the quantum theory, Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, and most of the tenets cited in Einstein's general theory of relativity, an impressive case can be made for incorporating the synchronicity principle into mainstream physics.

When the unified field theory is worked out to the bone - the evidence here, too, is mounting steadily - and the entire clockworks of the cosmos can be brought under a set of unifying equations, this will be the final touch for bringing the synchronicity principle into full popularity among scientists.
The application of synchronicity is based on the strategy that looking for the meaning in coincidental events is more pragmatic than striving to predict things according to notions of causality, surmised from statistical records. Perhaps ancient oriental scientists, who lacked our record keeping technology, found it easier to realize this and devised the Book of Changes to put their observations to work. By using the magic of numerical chance within the context of an ingenious system of archetypal readings, they claimed they were able to follow the convoluted patterns of how things tend to go together. Maybe now, using a personal computer, we can take advantage of their prescience in a way that honors the best of both worlds. (

The Psychological Model of Magick

Sigmund Freud's theory of the subconscious revolutionized Western thinking in general and psychology (which he did not, as some people are wont to believe, invent all by himself) in particular. Suddenly, man was seen as a being which was only partially conscious and in control of itself. While psychology is still fighting for its academical recognition as a science, it has stamped its mark on therapeutic disciplines - and on magic.

The psychological model of magic does not purport to explain how magic works, its only premise is that the subconscious (or, as Carl Jung later retagged it, the unconscious) will do the job if it is properly addressed and/or conditioned. This again is achieved by magical trance, suggestion and the use of symbols (i.e. selective sensory input) as tools of association and as a means of communication between the magician's conscious will and his subconscious faculty responsible for putting it into effect.

Aleister Crowley dabbled a great deal in the psychological model which comes as no surprise as he not only tried to keep up with all major academic disciplines of his time but thought himself to be the world's greatest psychologist into the bargain. But all considered he remained a traditionalist exponent of the spirit model: after all Aiwass was, in his belief, a praeternatural entity. Nevertheless he did have a knack of explaining magic in psychological terms to make it sound sensible to the sceptics of his time.

A more radical approach was taken by Austin Osman Spare whose sigil magic rests on the basic tenets of the psychological model. Spare's brilliant system is in principle an inversion of Freud's theory of complexes: by actively suppressing his will in the form of a graphical sigil and forgetting it, the magician creates an artificial "complex" which then starts to work on similar lines just as suppressed, subconscious traumas will cause neurotic behaviour etc.

The psychological magician is a programmer of symbols and different states of consciousness. He is not necessarily in need of a transcendent otherworld or even subtle energies, though in practice he will usually work on the assumption that one or the other (or both) do in fact exist and can be utilized by his subconscious. Authors such as Israel Regardie, Dion Fortune, William Butler, Francis King, William Gray and to some extent Pete Carroll subscribe to the psychological model which seems to be the primary domain of the English speaking world of magic and which has become the prevailing paradigm ever since the seventies of this century.

Consciousness and Technology – 3 Mind Expanding Comparisons

Of all the pursuits of human kind, the understanding and exploration of consciousness offers the most likely opportunity for us to realize a civilization oriented towards cooperation, compassion,sustainability, and respect for life. Awakening to higher states of consciousness is the process by which a person, or a collective, can re-organize their identity from an ego-centric material orientation to a level of awareness that is capable of holding many perspectives.

Only with an evolution in awareness can we discover the ever-greater aspects of ourselves.

Consciousness might be described as the quality or state of awareness that human beings have of themselves, their environment and their surroundings, including sensation, thought, feeling and intuition. Consciousness functions on many levels, including the dream states, the sub-conscious mind, the ever-present observer mind, waking consciousness, and many meditative and spiritual states of awareness. It is dynamic, always changing throughout the day, and continuously evolving throughout life.

Everything is both a mirror and a reflection of something else, and the technological world that we’ve constructed is a glimpse at our inner universe. The way we use technology is analogous to how the mind interacts with nature, collects and stores sensory data, formulates ideas and adapts to surroundings. Humans first dominated nature by studying and imitating the workings of the natural world, and this process has evolved into a symbiotic relationship where the evolution of the species is heavily warped by our own invention. Now we are totally dependent on technology for survival and for any further evolution.As such, it is enlightening to consider just how similar the human mind is to the computer, the core technology contributing to the evolution of human consciousness most by enabling communication to occur at synaptic speeds.

Dr. Robert Schoch: The REAL Age of The Sphinx Revealed

This research means there is a huge segment of human history that is entirely absent from the textbooks. What else has been forgotten along the way?

In this discussion, geologist Dr. Robert Schoch explores his analytical findings after examining the world-famous Egyptian Sphinx. Traditional Egyptologists considered the Sphinx to have been constructed around 2500BC, and that it was carved from scratch into the form we see today.

Schoch found that the weathering on the body of the Sphinx did not match up with that date, and the current head was carved much later on than the body. By looking at the statue, you can easily see that the head is far too small for the body and is out of proportion, which Schoch confirmed scientifically. Amazingly, he also found that the body has suffered weathering from rain, weather that did also not coincide with the date of 2500BC. That would’ve been at least 6000BC, or perhaps 12,000BC!

Schoch’s work has proved to be paradigm shattering, much like Robert Bauval’s work showing the alignment of the Pyramids with the Belt of Orion, and, Graham Hancock’s work with other ancient structures around the world.

The work on the Sphinx proved to be an explosive revelation, questioning the very origins of our civilisation…

A Word on Colloidal Gold

Basically, the advantages lie with the fact that colloidal gold can be safely used both internally as well as externally. The tiny gold particles from the colloid penetrate through the cell membranes easily and work effectively towards providing relief from the symptoms of several health disorders. A few benefits are discussed below:

Colloidal gold is used for bringing down the joint pain and inflammation caused by arthritis. It works well even in those cases of rheumatoid arthritis where swelling in the joints causes stiffness and affects joint mobility. On regular intake, the pain is eased and the normal movement of the joints are restored in a very short span of time.

Colloidal gold cream is also available which can be used topically for joint pain relief.

Colloidal gold acts as a natural stimulant for the cells of our body. This way it improves the transmission of electrical signals between the nerve cells in the brain and increases mental alertness and improves concentration.

It has been found that when it is taken as a supplement regularly for one month, the IQ level of a person improves significantly. It has been proved to be beneficial for those who were facing problems like lack of concentration and memory loss as colloidal gold restores healthy functioning of the brain.

Colloidal gold has a soothing effect on the tensed nerves. For this reason, when people start taking colloidal gold, they experience a sense of calmness within themselves. This calming effect provides a lot of relief from mental stress. In fact, use of colloidal gold for depression and anxiety symptoms have shown great results.

It has been used as an alternative medicine for other brain related issues like Parkinson's disease.

We tend to gain weight when the digestive system is not functioning properly. The undigested food left behind inside the bowels is often responsible for increasing the body weight. When colloidal gold is taken, it improves the digestion process and reduces obesity.

Since 19th century, it has been used to treat alcoholism. Today, it is used for treating other forms of addictions like that of nicotine, drugs, caffeine, etc.

Colloidal gold solution is used topically in the form of ointment to treat various skin disorders. It includes eczema, fungal infections, skin rash, wounds, skin burns and so on. It is used as an ingredient in anti-aging skin care products. It regenerates the cells, restores their normal elastic properties and improves the skin condition.

When it is given to people who are suffering from life-threatening conditions, then it is found to have prolonged their life span. This is possible because it energizes the body cells in our body and makes them healthy too.

Other colloidal gold uses include treating certain types of cancer such as prostate cancer and ovarian cancer in alternative therapies. In this condition, minuscule amount of gold is injected into the patients body in order to control growth of cancerous cells.

Basically, colloidal gold is non toxic in nature and do not have any adverse side effects...READ MORE>>>...

Dumbing Ourselves Down

Daily OM: The ability to go into any social situation and sense the level of consciousness in that situation is a gift. It enables us to move considerately in a world that holds people of all levels of awareness. However, there is a difference between shifting our energy to accommodate people and dumbing ourselves down to a regrettable degree. Sometimes, when we get into a particular social situation, we may feel pressure to play it small in order to fit in. Perhaps everyone is drinking or smoking excessively, engaging in gossipy small talk, or complaining bitterly about politics. It is one thing to notice this and modify our expectations and another thing entirely to join in. When we notice where people are coming from and acknowledge to ourselves that their energy is not in alignment with ours, we have several choices as to how to more>>>...

A Spiritual Guide to Living in the Fifth World

The Indigenous People lived in a higher vibration of Peace, being fully aware.

So it was, the “original people” lived in harmony with nature and recognized their connection from within their hearts with the Creator for centuries.

The people danced, told their stories and flourished with no fear. Fear was not in their vocabulary. All was provided as was promised. People accepted their assignments generation after generation. Great Medicine was offered freely to everyone by the “Medicine People” who agreed to be caretakers of the knowledge of the healing plants and herbs. Gardens produced corn and squash from the seeds the Creator provided in the beginning. Water was sacred and honored for the survival of life. So as not to forget the promise ceremonies were held to honor creation, seeds, water and the harvest of each garden. The four-legged creatures were a constant source of food for the people, as well as the sea creatures. Each animal killed for food, and or clothing journeyed on with a thankful prayer. The Great Smoky Mountain was abundant with berries, and nuts as well. Villages were a safe place for families to thrive no child went hungry. Women were honored and invited to council and held office with the Elders. The stories were told of Corn Women, The Great Mother and White Buffalo Calf more>>>...

Name and Shame - Jon Donnis (Bad Psychics Techno Geek)

He's made it onto my Name and Shame list. Well done keyboard warrior. It is an honour, really to be on this list. Your actions via e-mail and recently on Twitter are unacceptable. This is justifiable by the fact you have attacked me on your Bad Psychics site plus add me to your Black list ... therefore I have the equal right to add you to my own Name & Shame list.

To cut a long story short, I chose to use the term 'Bad Psychics' on one of my posts.  This Keyboard Warrior then took it upon himself to attack me, my standing and my skills. Guess what 'Bad Psychics'  is not your trademark. I am perfectly entitled to use the two words together! You don't own the term bad psychics.  I don't need traffic from your Bad Psychics page. I checked out site meter and found there was barely 4 people coming over from your site. Four people out of 9.5 million is barely nicking your traffic matey. How many did the word Bad Psychic lead to your page from mine ????

I really enjoy your digs and abuse. I also enjoy the same from your fans. Keep it up! You are spreading the word about me ... keep it up .. any advertising is good advertising. I have many sceptic converts in the ranks of believers. The more the merrier. Free advertising thanks buddy boy. I'm not scared of you and your alleged reputation as a bully with a obsessional hate campaign.

I know you won't be happy with me! You are so used to dishing out the dirt with everyone else. It's time someone gave it back. You think you can expose me and destroy me. Guess what ... I will stand up to you. I will deflect back everything you throw at me. I have no fear of being exposed as a fake as I know I am not one. Try Jonny boy, try. I have experienced bullying and attacks far worse than yours in my life. I'm still standing. I have no fear. Your method of force feed your own belief and your own fears on other people is defamatory. There are fakes out there, yes. Good boy for exposing them. But I wonder what sparked off this obsessional hate campaign you have? When I found out why I will let the world know. Believe me.

Researchers Discover Extra DNA Base

Adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine. How these four DNA bases are ordered determines the makeup of a genome. And now, researchers have discovered an extra DNA base, called 5-Formylcytosine, or 5fC. They’re not sure what it does just yet, but it’s stable in every living tissue in the bodies of mice. The findings were published in Nature Chemical Biology this week.

In addition to the familiar A, G, C, and T, there are also many small chemical modifications to DNA that affect how sequences are interpreted. These are known as epigenetic marks, and they can control when certain genes are switched on or off. For example, when methyl groups – a chemical tag with one carbon and two hydrogen atoms – were added to a particular gene in ants, researchers doubled their size. In humans, babies born to mothers who smoke show epigenetic changes that aren’t seen in the babies of nonsmokers.

First discovered in 2011, 5fC is one of these marks. It’s formed when enzymes add oxygen to methylated DNA, specifically DNA with methyl attached to cytosine. But at the time, researchers thought that 5fC was just a transitional state of cytosine, which was being removed by repair enzymes. As it turns out, 5fC isn’t temporary: It’s stable in living tissue, which means that it likely plays an important role... read more>>>...

Nowhere to hide: Facebook goes beyond ‘facial recognition’ to track you

Terrifying new research shows Facebook’s ambitions to track users has gone far beyond the company’s ‘old’ technology that recognises users faces, which in itself poses a dizzying array of privacy concerns.

The new development, dubbed Pose Invariant PErson Recognition (PIPER), gathers information about your clothing, hairstyles and body shapes and currently holds a 83% accuracy rate, already incredibly high and is expected to increase even further.

Despite the denials by Facebook that their new technology will not be used, when is the last time a tech company – one that can only survive financially by collecting information about its users and then selling that information, invested in highly invasive software that it did not use it for profit? more>>>...

People of the Standing Stone

The name Oneida is derived from the English mispronunciation of Onyota'a:ka, the people's name for themselves. Onyota'a:ka means "People of the Standing Stone". This identity is based on an ancient legend. The Oneida people were being pursued on foot by an enemy tribe. As their enemies chased the Oneida into a clearing within the woodlands, they suddenly disappeared. The enemy could not find them, and so it was said that the Oneida had shapeshifted into the stones that stood in the clearing. As a result, they became known as the People of the Standing Stone.

Older legends have the Oneida people identifying as the "Big Tree People". Not much is written about this. Iroquoian elders would have to be consulted on the oral history of this identification. The association may correspond to Iroquoian concepts of the Great Tree of Peace and the associated belief system of the people.

The Oneida, along with the five other tribes of the Iroquois Confederacy, initially maintained a policy of neutrality in the American Revolution. This policy allowed the Confederacy increased leverage against both sides in the war, because they could threaten to join one side or the other in the event of any provocation. Neutrality quickly crumbled, however. The preponderance of the Mohawks, Senecas, Cayugas, and Onondagas sided with the Loyalists and British. For some time, the Oneidas continued advocating neutrality and attempted to restore consensus among the six tribes of the Confederacy.(Wikipedia)

Ezra Extract - 'Harsh Times'

Extract taken from 'The Chronicles Of Ezra' written by Matthew James

"There are major changes afoot in the consciousness of man. Things no longer be the same on the material plane. A lift in vibration hast begun. The agencies of Belial will struggle to keep control. Know the rules within the prison are soon to change. The laws and the cruelty are to get worse; the denial of the truth will get stronger. Belial struggles to keep its hold, thus it shall take drastic measures. What a time ye choose to be incarnate.
Harsh times indeed
Cruel tyrants bearing different faces walk the earth
But know they are all the same
Corruption of power is their driving force
The innocent and the suffering their fodder
Life can only get worse for common mortal man...

But Ezra, thy chronicle`s word are harsh. They can only breed panic within the fibres of the consciousness of man. We hold ourselves to blame for these things have to be said. These words were freely given and ye report them exactly how they were heard. But now, they must be changed. We must calm things down and give mankind hope. For all is not lost. There can be a way to be saved. All is not lost. This must be stressed.
There is hope
There is a light beyond the storm
Darkness will not always be in control
Its hold draws to a close
The central sun is out from behind the clouds
Its light travels quickly to the material shores
Its wondrous effects are soon to be felt.

The central sun. The star around which this solar system revolves. A fact. A truth that can be proven tough I be not here to prove, I merely be here to report. The orbit takes around 20,000 human years. The latest orbit began the time of darkness; the period when the power of Belial took hold. Though Belial be not the cause, Belial merely be a manifestation of the darkness on the entity now known as man. At the end of this orbit comes the time of light again; a period of 20,000 human years of enlightenment and unconditional love; universal consciousness and unity. The time of light fast approaches. In human terms, ye hast only to wait another 25 years. The end of the last cycle of light passing into the time of darkness; the darkness which still be upon ye, saw the fall of Atlan and the creation of all the false religions which control ye so much.
What some human misfits call The New Age; The Age Of Aquarius be now at hand. This name be yet another way of separating mankind from the truth. Mortal names be so dangerous a thing. They be like a tag, weaponry to use to control fellow man by fellow man. Awful deeds always follow when some natural phenomenon be given a mortal name.
The time of light is at hand. The doorkeepers be now incarnate. They waken and they will slowly make themselves known. And the race mankind call The Angels prepare these brave souls and open their consciousness to the universal ways. The brave souls be incarnates of the same race; but they hast forgotten that fact during their fall into the material realms. The angels help them remember, for these souls hast been within human forms for many eons preparing themselves for this role. It shall be their minds that combine to open a corridor in the human consciousness to permit the light of the central sun in. There`s be the eternal battle; there fight with the children of darkness be what ye know as Armageddon. For know the children of the darkness cannot stand the light of the central sun; they need the darkness to survive. For the light demands truth and universal love; darkness quells the love and breeds hate and ignorance. Those who be the children of the darkness have forgotten how to love and are only able to hate such is the ignorance they bear.
Know many other souls, on many other vibrations work with the children of the light to ensure the light of the central sun effects the consciousness of mankind how it should. For the light will bring enlightenment and realisation. The light will enable the truth to be known by all. The light will permit mankind to leave the physical vibrations behind. But pity those with only hate in their souls - they shall be unable to enter the new realms made available when mankind`s consciousness lifts. They will be doomed to a return to the physical vibrations. Know the orb ye know as earth will be forbidden to they; they will have to incarnate on other worlds in order to work off their karma. Know the only world available to they when this takes place shall be what ye know as Saturn. Know for those souls Saturn will be hell; for it is a fiery world. They will be doomed to an eternity of fire and flames.
Ezra, this instruction is true. Listen ... the purge of the darkness must fully be cleansed from your mind. All karma must be cleared before a soul can make that rise into the new vibrations. Before the light of the central sun can grant immortality. Before it slight can enable unification. Any touch of darkness, and a soul is left behind in the fires. The One shall not be complete for many facets still have to return. But the way the physical plane be in current times is how it is meant. Souls work on their karma, fate has speeded up the evolution; the pay off time.
The darkness hid
Within the fabric of the human mind
Unperceivable, unnoticeable
Becoming too confident; too ignorant
But like the tumour it rises to the surface
Making itself known
All the hate, all the greed, all the guilt
Collected in one place
Within one entity
It is contained
It can no longer run

It is the way it is meant to be. The shadow has been contained. All the karma created by The One is being played out in the modern day. All the facets repeating their crimes. Being forced to understand. Before the central sunlight comes. The gamble, the risk The One must take. And it be doubtless Belial is aware. It be revelling in its total power. It pushes for its ultimate goal. Total separation. Total separation before the central sun`s light comes. A race against mortal time.
Be confident Mara-gamiel, part of Ezra. Be confident in what ye report. Be confident in the teachings that are to come. Be the healer once more. Be the scribe. Be the prophet and help the victims who come. Make them realise the pain they bear. Help them to release those burdens. Open their hearts and prepare them for what is to come.
Thy voice is heard and thy role be recognised. Ye may seem to stand alone, but we come close. We aid thee. We sent to thee what ye truly need. Know there be others like ye. Incarnates of Ezra alive this time. IN the modern day like ye. Know they shall be sent to thee. Know across a bridge they shall cross. Know that time be fast approaching."

Question Me: 'Mara Gamiel'

'I noticed the web address for A Light In The Darkness incorporates the name Mara Gamiel ... I would be interested to know the significance of this name' (Ainsley Peters, Toronto, Canada)

I consider this a really good subject for a 'Question Me'. The answer to this question is really very simple. I did NOT intend to use the name Mara Gamiel. It is a permutation of Marah Gimel that somehow 'appeared' at the time I created the Blog exactly a year ago today.

It was only after I'd registered the Blog and come to use the web address that I realised the 'error'. I elected to leave it as it was sensing it was not a mistake but by design that the A Light In The Darkness acquired this web address!

Somehow the 'H' was omitted out of the Marah and the 'A' appeared plus the 'I' and the 'M' switched position. Very odd in truth. 'Divine intervention' perhaps. I researched both Mara and Gamiel at the time and decided the 'result' of this divine intervention was 'interesting':

In Buddhism there is a reference to Devaputra-mara, or Mara the son of a deva (god), that is, Mara as an objectively existent being rather than as a metaphor. Mara is described both as an entity having a literal existence, just as the various deities of the Vedic pantheon are shown existing around the Buddha, and also is described as a primarily psychological force - a metaphor for various processes of doubt and temptation that obstruct religious practice.

The Celestials are fictional characters in the Marvel Universe. Gamiel (the Manipulator) is a young Celestial who was assigned to watch over Earth. He was disgusted that Devron's Little Folk had beaten back his creations: the Killer Folk so he brought the Hulk from the future and sent him down upon the Little Folk and their champion: Devil Dinosaur. This is a humour story depicting Celestial youth (Wikipedia) ...

Thus I let the intervention ride ... basically because taking the literal meanings of the two names:

The first part of the name, MARA, appertains to 'an objective existence which represents the various processes of doubt and temptation which obstruct religious practice;

The second part, GAMIEL, is a totally fictional character which had the role of a 'watcher' who decided to become personally involved in the events which he was meant only to observe. He intervened with a 'creation' of his own.

Fine by me... an apt name I feel in truth for A Light In The Darkness which has the objective of 'providing alternative viewpoints to those which have been established with regard to matters of the Occult' plus the intention behind A Light In The Darkness was to provide an insight into personal involvement in the world of the Occult .... including insights into personal viewpoints and methodology ...

Incidentally, by way of a footnote, the intended name of Marah Gimel appertains to the title 'Camel of the Great Sea' .... it relates to a position (and insight) on the Kabbalistic Tree of Life. Marah relates to the Sphere of Binah which can often be called Marah or the Great Sea. The Camel is Gimel in Hebrew. The Path of Gimel wanders through The Abyss connecting to the lower portions of the Tree of Life to the Supernals at the top of the tree. The concept of A Light In The Darkness was to make the occult and the hidden ... known ... to create a compendium of all things Occult. But there you go ... a higher force quoshed that planned idea and came up with something entirely different but strangely similar ....

Two Types Of Ego

There are two kinds of ego: Pure ego and false ego.
The Pure ego is the Spirit Soul the Unconditioned Consciousness essential for the nature.

False ego is said to be the real cause of sorrow. It gives rise to bondage of material desires — desire for body attachment, name, fame, selfishness, greed, and so on. It creates divisions within, duality, confusion, thought disturbance, separation, limitations, doubts, and fears of all sorts including the fear of death. Criticism does effect our sense of self worth. Anyone, who is devoid of the courage to receive criticism with open mind, cannot prevent his self esteem from turning into false ego. However, criticism alone does not necessarily encompass all that contributes to the mischievous performance of false ego.

Three-mile high ‘pyramid peak’ spotted on mysterious Ceres dwarf planet

The mystery surrounding the dwarf planet Ceres continues to thicken: New images taken by the Dawn probe have revealed a three-mile high pyramid shaped peak, while also giving updated photographs of the planet’s puzzling bright spots. The craft took the photographs on June 9 from a distance of 2,700 miles (4,300 kilometers). It revealed a number of new geographical characteristics, in particular, the high peak that juts out from the surrounding landscape.

“The surface of Ceres has revealed many interesting and unique features. For example, icy moons in the outer solar system have craters with central pits, but on Ceres central pits in large craters are much more common. These and other features will allow us to understand the inner structure of Ceres that we cannot sense directly,” said Carol Raymond, deputy principal investigator for the Dawn mission, based at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, more>>>>..

The ground is so 'un-Mars' with its striations and its distinctive green appearance. The white bands are a mystery, so are the very humanoid looking figures that are wandering across this image.

What are the mystery plumes of vapour trails caused by in this image of Mars? Gases or flying vehicles. Either are impossible according to the reports of Mars.

Alien hunters discover a 'PYRAMID' on Mars and claim the 'near-perfect' structure was built by an ancient civilisation

Daily Mail: In their latest bizarre claim, conspiracy theorists say they have found a replica of one of Egypt's Great Pyramids on Mars. Citing the 'near-perfect design and shape', they argue the 'pyramid' is evidence that an ancient civilisation once lived on the red planet.

While the pyramid is believed to be 'car-sized', alien-hunters say it may be just the tip of a much larger structure buried beneath. YouTube channel, ParanormalCrucible, used video footage taken by Nasa's Curiosity Rover on May 7 to back up its claims.

'None of the Curiosity Rover's subsequent photos taken at 20 to 30 sec intervals in the following few minutes and the subsequent photos hours later, included the object,' wrote UFO site Exopolitics. 'It appears that the Nasa operators of Curiosity deliberately chose not to take another photo or zoom in on the pyramid. If they however did so, none of these subsequent photos were released to the general public.'

OPINION: Why is it a bizarre claim to suggest life on Mars? There is enough evidence on A Light In The Darkness pages to suggest life on Mars is a reality.

Futhark: Mysterious Ancient Runic Alphabet of Northern Europe

The word rune comes from the Norse rún which means mystery or secret. Little is known about the origins of the Runic alphabet and no one knows exactly when, where or who invented it.

Runes are the characters of the earliest written alphabet used by the Germanic peoples of Europe called Futhark. The runic alphabet was used within Germanic languages but primarily in Nordic countries. Inscriptions have been found throughout northern Europe from the Balkans to Germany, Scandinavia, the British Isles and Iceland, and were in use from about 100 to 1600 AD. Runic inscriptions have even been found in North America, supporting claims that the Vikings arrived in the Americas long before Columbus.

The Runic alphabet is known as Futhark after the first six runes, namely f,u,th,a,r and k. It consisted of 24 letters, 18 consonants and 6 vowels, and was a writing system where each character marked a certain sound. Runes could be written in both directions and could also be inverted or upside down. The earliest runes consisted almost entirely of straight lines, arranged singly or in combinations of two or more. Later runes took on more complex forms and some even resemble modern day letters of the English alphabet.

Elder Futhark is thought to be the oldest version of the runic script, and was used in the parts of Europe that were home to Germanic peoples, including Scandinavia. It consisted of 24 letters, and was used mostly before the ninth century AD. This was the ancestor language of English, Dutch, German, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish and Icelandic. As languages changed and more Germanic groups adopted it, Futhark changed to suit the language that it came to more>>>...
