Staying True to Your Word

Daily OM: Promises are easily made. Keeping them often proves more difficult because when we are pressured to strive always for perfection, we find it simpler to agree to undertake impossible tasks than to say no. Likewise, there is an infinite array of circumstances that conspire to goad us into telling falsehoods, even when we hold a great reverence for truth. When you endeavor to consistently keep your word, however, you protect your reputation and promote yourself as someone who can be trusted to be unfailingly truthful. Though your honesty may not always endear you to others—for there will always be those who fear the truth—you can nonetheless be certain that your integrity is never tarnished by the patina of deceit. Since frankness and sincerity form the basis of all life-enriching relationships, your word is one of your most precious and powerful possessions...read more>>>...

Zika has 'explosive pandemic potential': Scientists urge World Health Organisation to act amid claims virus could infect 4 MILLION

Daily Mail: Scientists today warned the Zika virus has 'explosive pandemic potential'. The World Health Organisation said the mosquito-borne disease had gone from a mild threat to one of alarming proportions and admitted up to four million people could be infected. The agency will convene an emergency committee of disease experts on Monday. It comes after US experts claimed WHO was not taking a leadership role in the Zika pandemic. They said the organisation needed to learn lessons from its handling of the Ebola epidemic where the 'agency's failure to act decisively cost thousands of lives'. The WHO says it has set up measures to fight the spread including surveillance, laboratories for testing, clinical care and vector control - killing off the mosquitoes spreading the infection...read more>>>...

OPINION: Yawn! Heard this so many times before. PROBLEM-REACTION-SOLUTION. This is STAGE 1 ... creating a problem. Infect some mosquitoes with a laboratory created virus. Put them out into a controlled environment. Get a test area of the world infected. Then SCARE SCARE SCARE ... to get the reaction they want .... then they provide the SOLUTION which is where they want to go. Yawn!

Kestrel Totem Animal

The kestrel teaches control of speed and movement. It teaches patience as well as quick-thinking; survival of Self and Family; observation, and keen-awareness; they teach that size does not constitute strength.

Another aspect of being able to fly and soar reminds us to be detached from situations that call for us to see the "bigger picture." Rise above the stress and strife and come to actually see and perceive the magnitude of all things. The kestrel is often a symbol for recognizing opportunities and acting upon them at only the correct moment. It teaches speed and accuracy of action as falcons use their plunge to kill their prey, striking it hard. The kestrel and any falcon can teach us to know when to act, and how to fully commit to our actions, as well as how to use our strengths for the greatest success.

The kestrel is a bird that can stimulate a quick, graceful and agile mind. It will teach you how to use your mental facilities more effectively and more patiently to capture what you most need and desire. It not only has excellent vision, but its hearing is amazing -- so it reminds us to truly Listen and See what is around us, within our lives, and our place/responsibility within situations.

It is not unusual for individuals with kestrels as a totem/guide to want to always sit or be placed in a position where they have a wide vision of everything about them. Kestrel folks are known for being out-going, vibrant, alive people... living life to the fullest. They are great-thinkers and spend time involved in deep-thoughts, they are detail oriented, and are likewise capable of working in the abstract. They are apt at adapting, can change directions in their lives on a "dime" and recover from any situation with a sense of flexibility and grace. Let it be known however, kestrel-folks are protective of their families, property, and self. Once crossed, they do not easily forgive, nor forget -- instead, they choose to totally redirect their own life accordingly.

Digging Deep for Healing

Daily Om: For many people, apprehension manifests itself in the physical self as a potent feeling of heaviness or nausea situated in the depths of the lower abdomen. And it is there, at the seat of the second or sacral chakra, that we must lovingly and deliberately confront the anxiety. By rooting down into the deepest physical reaches of ourselves, we can cleanse ourselves of unease and replenish the space it has left behind with tranquil awareness. Much of what we encounter in our daily lives has the potential to awaken feelings of nervousness within us or make us question whether we are truly in control of our lives. When you establish a den of peace within your core, you empower yourself to act rather than react in distressing situations. Your balanced second chakra helps you respond productively to the turmoil around you while your inwardly directed attention steadies you...read more>>>...

The X-Files: Chris Carter Strikes a Nerve...

So after 14 years off the air, 11 months of waiting after the revival was announced and most excruciatingly, 20 minutes of contentless, post-game fluff and a mind-rotting avalanche of commercials, the new episode of The X-Files aired.  The ratings were huge and most of the fans seem ecstatic. But at the same time there is quite clearly an organized campaign among critics and keyboard commandos against this reboot, against the first episode "My Struggle" in particular...read more>>>...

Timing Can Be Everything

Noisy Miner Copyright Matthew James 2016
Daily Om: Since human timetables quite often do not correspond with universal timetables, it’s common for people to feel that life is progressing too slowly or too quickly. We draft carefully composed plans only to find that they fall into place when we least expect. Or, conversely, we are thrust into roles we believe we are not prepared for and wonder how we will survive the demands imposed upon us by unfamiliar circumstances. When delays in our progress kindle pangs of disappointment within us or the pace of life seems overwhelming, peace can be found in the simple fact that we are exactly where we need to be at this moment.  Every person fulfills their purpose when the time is right. If you have fast-tracked to success, you may become deeply frustrated if you discover you can no longer satisfy your desires as quickly as you might like...read more>>>...

Ape-Men Never Existed!

The Atlantean Conspiracy: One of the first frauds in the history of Darwinism, known as “recapitulation theory,” and heralded as undeniable “proof of evolution,” was an idea proposed and propagated by a racist eugenicist Professor named Ernst Haeckel in the late 19th century.  A contemporary and friend of Charles Darwin and Thomas “Bulldog” Huxley, Haeckel postulated that human (and other animal) embryos experience a miniature form of the entire evolutionary impulse during their development in the womb, displaying first characteristics of fish, then reptile, and lastly mammalian or human.  It has long been eliminated from scientific literature, but many people and popular sources still unknowingly quote and believe in Haeckel’s fraudulent work.  Several popular magazines and school textbooks as recently as the 1990s, over a century after being exposed, were still publishing Haeckel’s hoaxed pictures and recapitulation theory as science fact!

It has since been proven that this theory is completely bogus.  It is now known that the ‘gills’ that supposedly appear in the early stages of the human embryo are in fact the initial phases of the middle-ear canal, parathyroid, and thymus.  The part of the embryo that was likened to the ‘egg yolk pouch’ turns out to be a pouch that produces blood for the infant.  The part that had been identified as a ‘tail’ by Haeckel and his followers is in fact the backbone, which resembles a tail only because it takes shape before the legs do.  Another interesting aspect of ‘recapitulation’ was Ernst Haeckel himself, a faker who falsified his drawings in order to support the theory he advanced.  Haeckel’s forgeries purported to show that fish and human embryos resembled one another.  When he was caught out, the only defense he offered was that other evolutionists had committed similar offences!  -Harun Yahya, “The Evolution Deceit” (199-200) ...

Sugar 'is the new crack cocaine': Doctor warns growing addiction to the sweet stuff is 'as dangerous as drugs and alcohol'

Daily Mail: One of the most common modern day dependencies is our growing addiction to sugar. We hear a lot about addiction to caffeine, sleeping pills and alcohol. Can we really add sugar to that list?  According to an increasing number of ‘sugar experts’ the answer is yes. Studies in mice have clearly shown that sugar is addictive.

By manipulating their diet to include more or less sugar, or to produce a sugar withdrawal effect, scientists can produce similar behaviour to true drug addiction. What’s more, in a study by French scientists, rats chose sugar over cocaine - even when they were addicted to cocaine. Not surprisingly, in humans such studies are a bit more difficult to do.  However, research using brain scans found that drinking sugary milkshakes triggered the same ‘reward centre’. What’s more, increasing the amount of fat in the milkshake didn’t really affect it – sugar was the culprit.

And as with any potentially addictive substance, the more we consume, the more our reward receptors get numbed to it – so we look for even more to re-create that ‘high’...read more>>>...

Lizard Totem Animal

Iguana Lizard copyright Matthew James 2016
When Lizard is one of your personal Animal Totems you have the power to regenerate that which has been lost. 

You have a tendency to repeat some of life's cycles simply because your psyche loves to recreate the emotional attachments in any way it can because the emotions and the cycles are familiar ground.

You will be a master at facing your fears and moving between altered states of realty and “otherworlds”.

It is maybe time to undertake an internal audit and look at yourself as if you are in the third person. Are you being ruled by your ego or are you coming from your heart? Be mindful that the Ego is 'the master of deception', and you will have to peel back many layers of apparent self to arrive at the authentic self. Only then will you discover what your heart is really telling you. 

Discover Shamanic Mediumship


This will be an 'open air' workshop ... discover your own connection to the otherworlds and with nature. Learn the ideology behind Shamanic Mediumship ... unlock the ways and means to see informative symbology in the world around you.

All of the universe is holographic in nature ... which means that ALL aspects of the universe can be discovered in anything and everything around you. Just like reflexology reveals the issues and nature of the human body, so the 'lay of the land' around you can reveal what is happening in your life, in other people's lives and in the collective consciousness of mankind at this time.
Once the venue has been secured, more details on this unique workshop will be posted ...

'The Bearer of the Diary of the Cryme'


I sit in the half light plagued with regret

Memories like ghosts haunt me

I flinch as water drips from the ceiling close by

Its sound catching me off guard

as a cry promises to escape my silent lips

I mouth a silent word, "salvation",

I know now it will not come ...


I am chilled to the bone here,

I have perished, that I know

I am but a shade now, a ghost

An infection in the mind of the living

And my bones they will never find; lost are they under the earth,

My grave a flooded cavern within the earth ...


I am the keeper of a legacy

I am the key, my testaments a doorway to hell

For I am the author of the Diary Of The Cryme

Its physical manifestation lost

Drowned in the icy cold waters here

A swift transition I was denied for my passage came so long and so painful

Punishment for all my mortal crimes,


But .... how was I to blame?

I followed the society, I did as I was told

Ignorance a befitting crime for he of no name

My wisdom the key, the molten gold

But it was overlooked by all those selfish fools

Who lived their meaningless lives with all their wondrous tools

I warned them after the visions came, but they ignored me

They failed to believe it was the truth I could see ....


I reach out from beyond the grave and touch the minds of those who now listen

The cycle returns to the point again

Along tunnels you all will flee

The earth demands redemption

Many, many of you shall perish again

Listen, listen ..... it shall come to pass!!!!!!!!!

Sending Love Ahead to Your Day

 Daily OM: Upon waking, many people consider the coming day with trepidation. Because of the natural human tendency to focus on what we fear or dislike, it is easy to unwittingly send a message of unease into the future that negatively impacts the quality of your day. However, while our lives are busy and frequently replete with challenges, they are also rich with joy and experiences worth savoring. We can attract this natural bliss into our lives by starting each day with a message of love. When you send love ahead to your day, that love will manifest itself in your interpersonal interactions, your professional endeavors, and your domestic duties. Tasks and circumstances once made trying by your own anxiety are transformed by your love, and you will find yourself approaching life’s subtle nuances with great affection. Each morning, when you have cast off the fog of sleep, take several deep, grounding breaths and reaffirm the love you have for yourself...read more>>>...

"Earth has shifted"-Inuit elders issue warning to NASA and the world

A new warning has come to NASA from the Inuits. They are warning that the change in climate is not due to global warming but rather, because of the Earth shifting a bit.

The Inuits are local people that live in the Arctic regions of Canada, the United States and Greenland. They are excellent weather forecasters and so were their ancestors. Presently they are warning NASA that the cause of change in weather, earthquakes etc, are not due to global warming as the world thinks. They also report that

They state that the earth has shifted or "wobbled". "Their sky has changed!"

The elders declare that the sun rises at a different position now, not where it used to previously. They also have longer daylight to hunt now, the sun is much higher than earlier, and it gets warmer much quickly. Other elders across the north also confirmed the same thing about the sky changing when interviewed.

Cosmic rays could reveal how pyramids were built: Scientists say imprint of space particles may unveil ancient Egypt's secrets

Daily Mail: Egyptian and foreign experts are using space particles to help them unravel the secrets of the pyramids. The group said on Sunday that it is now ready to begin studying cosmic particles collected inside Egypt's Bent Pyramid. They hope these particles will provide clues on how the 4,600-year-old structure was built. Mehdi Tayoubi, president of the Heritage Innovation Preservation Institute, said that plates installed inside the pyramid last month collected data on radiographic particles known as 'muons'.

Muons rain down from the Earth's atmosphere. The particles pass through empty spaces but can be absorbed or deflected by harder surfaces. By studying particle accumulations, scientists may learn more about the construction of the pyramid, built by the Pharaoh Snefru...read more>>>...
