2012 Precession of The Equinox – From Darkness Into Light


It is said: history repeats itself. And what we call precession of the equinox is a wonderful, age-old cosmological example of this gem of wisdom. In this article we discuss what is accepted, main-stream knowledge of this repetitive astronomical process and then dive into some significant lesser known emerging hypotheses relating to and tying together the accelerating 2012 phenomena and current events we now see unfolding.

Last, we look to show by placing the puzzle pieces together into a cohesive, high probability opinion that our solar system including Earth and all its inhabitants, are now together emerging into a inter-dimensional frequency shift beyond our limited perception of only three dimensions.

Much of what will be discussed here may be to some, arcane. So with that in mind, I will attempt to concisely convey esoteric concepts and beliefs in a logical fashion combined with supporting, emphatically provable scientific evidence. This would also be a good time to personally reflect that each of us is responsible for our spiritual awakening and physical evolutionary progress. It always begins from within, not from some external force as it so often seems. A key to unlocking profound changes within can only begin through deliberate application of unconditional love wrapped in wisdom.

May I suggest if you find yourself in a position requiring a new level of acceptance or understanding to what is written, simply open your heart and mind looking for evidence in your own life to help support the conclusion presented. In doing so, you will inevitably join in the discussion finding inner strength along the way into a new light of awareness. Before we jump into the real subject matter of this article- From Darkness into Light, let’s first lay a basic foundation for those who may not be knowledgeable about what the astronomical term precession of the equinox means. The following explanation should prove helpful.

Precession Of The Equinox

The precession of the equinoxes also called the Great Year, refers to the precession (slow western movement) of Earth’s axis of rotation with respect to inertial space. There are a couple varying schools of thought as to the cause of this precession. The mainstream theory held is that earth’s precession is caused because earth is not a perfect sphere but an oblate spheroid. If the Earth was a perfect sphere we would have no precession. The primary cause of this effect is because Earth’s equatorial diameter is slightly larger (due to earth’s rotation) than the polar diameter. Another more visual example used to explain this rotation is the analogy of a spinning top. In the case of the spinning top, gravity effects how the top eventually tips over while it is spinning. Earth’s wobble however, is said to be caused by the forces of the sun and moon as gravity is nonexistent in space.

A few last important tidbits. A complete precession cycle covers a period of approximately ~25,625 years; this is called the “Great Year”. During this time the equinox will regresses a full 360°. Processional movement also is the determining factor in the length of an Astrological Age. To summarize, the precession is the sun’s apparent position moving slowly west in a constellation when observed on the same day each year; it takes an equinox sun approximately ~2,135 years to move through one of the twelve constellations on its 25,625 cycle completely around the Zodiac.

This understanding of precession will be crucial later on in the article. Currently we are now moving out of the age of Pisces and into the constellation Aquarius with all its “new era” symbols and profound meanings. Although there is ongoing debate as to the exact timing when entering a new age reflected in the backdrop of the heavenly boundaries, the variance of linear time is negligible for this discussion. That fact along with additional interesting information is the basis of this article. Now, let’s move on exploring some fascinating possibilities.

A Return Path To Rediscovery

While some people may debase or discount astrology and the meaning of astrological signs, we can indeed find synchronicities in earthly events when taken in context of the meaning of an astrological age. Since the precession is an established fact, we can now look back into previous astrological ages to gather characteristics and influences of a given age. Take for example the last one, the age of Pisces. In thinking about the age of Pisces, the first thing that typically comes to mind is the symbolism- a fish. This was an age of big religions. Symbolically, the fish is interpreted in many ways such as: sacrifice, charity, mercy, compassion and pardon. It is also associated with the planet Neptune represented by faith and divinity. In Hinduism the fish was also the symbol of the savior; Vishnu’s first incarnation in the shape of a fish saved Manu from the flood.

A close look at the Christian faith along with many others, strive in these characteristics as ways of pursuing the divine. Consider also that Jesus spoke of his disciples as “Fishers of Men” offering those with ears to hear enlightenment and salvation. The Piscean age was one of spiritual awakening in which all are invited to seek God, service to others rather than service to self- living the Golden Rule. It also can be viewed as a world age which embodied virtue and eternal truth of spiritual salvation available to all.

So, it may not be farfetched to conclude the age of Pisces was the birth age of Christianity and greater spiritual awakening worldwide. Soon to follow, and continuing much to this day, a division, separation and strife as religious world views clash. Much of this is fueled by spiritual misconceptions and strict dogmas built upon unawareness that we all have eternal natures and the same divine inheritance. In a sidebar, interestingly Christian eschatology’s infamous book of Revelation, (or Apocalypse, from the verb apokalypto, to reveal) describes a new earth which is revealed at the end of the age. One could say that truly it shall be the end of the world- the present world as we know it. This book clearly is infused with a Shift of The Age perspective.

Furthermore, what transpires according to prophesy is a “Golden Age”, a “New Heaven, a New Earth”. Many other traditions speak of a world unlike the one that we now inhabit coming into existence in this Aquarian age. In a passage recorded in Luke 22:10 Jesus, in preparation for the Jewish Passover and the Last Supper, makes a statement which alludes to the coming Aquarian Age: And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in”. This is an interesting reference to the Age of Aquarius’s symbol of the man carrying water (water = light) alluding that more light is to come. Implying this just preceding a Jewish upcoming holy day and festival is significant since it commemorates the Hebrews escape from enslavement in Egypt.

A statement like this is analogous to our physical bodies (DNA) restraining our spiritual self back from revealing its full potential. Passover in the spiritual sense should be interpreted as divine intervention bringing one closer to a new, freer world without limitations, a prelude to an Aquarian Age. The Last Supper was also symbolic of the future abilities; alchemy of water into wine, a transformation of mind, body and spirit transmuting the divisive structure of our ego. Suffice to say, the Piscean age was one in which we all should acknowledge duality of body and soul being revealed for the purpose of raising our lower physical nature by including our eternal, spiritual selves.

One More Cycle Back In Time

Aries Prior to the Piscean age was the age of Aries, symbolized in the ram. The age of the ram signified a time of expansion of empires and conquest. It is often associated with fire, war, conquest, adventure and of course, initiative growth. A Bronze age in Central Europe saw the rise of classical Greek with the worship of Apollo the god of the sun and of course, the orient, Persia and Rome in all their glory. Moses in his exodus from Egypt with the Hebrews into a new, promised land exemplified the expansion hallmarks of this age.

The Old Testament or Hebrew Torah is filled with warrior conquests and nomadic life for its full religious history and symbolism. However, the most Arian like theme is the One-God, One-Creator concept. Monotheistic Judaism quickly won out over the Golden Cow through great spiritual personalities like Abraham and Moses. Even Egypt stepped up in like fashion with Pharaoh Akhenaten’s drive to replace polytheism with monotheism. Finally, the symbol of the ram being removed from a place of worship to one as the sacrificial lamb/ram was a symbolic rebellion from a previous age- Taurus, the bull. Moses instructed the Hebrews to dispel the bull, by placing lambs blood on the door posts as a form of divine insurance. He clearly knew it was the end of the age of Taurus and the beginning of Aries.

Where To Now?

Just as we are now entering into the Age of Aquarius, transitional effects occur and characteristics of the previous age linger. Liken it to a seasonal change from winter to spring, they are gradual and recede, it’s never an abrupt process. Each age merges and blends together for a short time in what the Mayans referred to as the “galactic underworld” and is also a time modern astrologers call the “cusp”. A general theme for this time between two worlds is easily described as one of chaos- rapid, unorganized change accompanied by increasing universal truth being revealed.

Later we will learn what to expect and what we may well witness during the near-term in regards to the transition phase we find ourselves in now. The point in reviewing past ages was for the sole purpose in validating the existence of documentable themes of every age. Yes, history does in fact repeat itself. For a more detailed, scientific look at time cycles see the book review post: Fractal Time. Having just done a 6,000+ year look-back one should easily see that if you had continued further back in time, life on earth in an enlightened sense, darkens quickly.

Thankfully, earth and its inhabitants are now returning to a place in the cosmic backdrop in which a powerful light energy is transforming every atom in its path with its laser-beam like focus.

“As we know from ancient Egyptian history, there are symptoms of psychic changes that always appear at the end of one Platonic month and at the beginning of another. They are, it seems changes in the constellation of the psychic dominants, of the archetypes or “Gods” as they used to be called, which bring about, or accompany, long-lasting transformations of the collective psyche.”

– C G Jung

Disharmony- A Separation From Source Light

From a cosmological perspective our solar system is returning on a 25,625 year path laid amongst the cosmos back into a very powerful stream of light energy. This light energy which constantly resonates and essentially acts like a focused, intense beam of energy is emitted from our Milky Way Galaxy’s center 26,000 light years away from Earth. Our local solar system located on an outer spiral arm of the Milky Way naturally travels like a wave oscillating up and down relative to the galactic plane, in and out of this “light energy” beam emanating out from the Galaxy’s core.

Today, modern astronomers have verified that at the center of our Galaxy is a “whirling disk” with a “Black Hole” at its center that is both swallowing and giving birth to stars. During this 25,625 year traverse, the solar system including Earth, enters into and passes through the galactic plane twice; one pass slightly closer to the Milky Way Galaxy’s center than the other. Metaphorically speaking this is traversing from darkness into light.

As we travel further away from and out of the Galactic plane, the light energy emitted from the galaxy’s center, becomes less concentrated, less effective in our local solar system. Since science understands that all of the Milky Way Galaxy’s components for creating it suns, stars and planets were and are sourced from the center, reason dictates this source is a pulsing, light wave energy containing life giving transformative power. We can look to one of the most astronomically and mathematically advanced civilizations of recorded history the Mayans, and gather a logical opinion as to the significance of the galactic center. Here is what they said about it: They referred to the Galactic Center as “Hunab Ku” and it was the ultimate creator and supreme God and everything that occurs in our Galaxy is directed from its center through the emanation of periodic “Consciousness Energy” bursts.

Before you write off the Mayans as ancient indigenous idiots filled with superstition, consider the following- Astronomers at Sweet Briar College and the Naval Research Laboratory have detected a powerful new bursting radio (read frequency) source whose unique properties suggest the discovery of a new class of astronomical objects. The researchers have monitored the center of the Milky Way Galaxy for several years and revealed their findings in the March 3, 2005 edition of the journal, “Nature.”

Principal investigator, Dr. Scott Hyman, professor of physics at Sweet Briar College, said the discovery came after analyzing some additional observations from 2002 provided by researchers at Northwestern University. “We hit the jackpot!” Hyman said referring to the observations. “An image of the Galactic center, made by collecting radio waves of about 1-meter in wavelength, revealed multiple bursts from the source during a seven-hour period from Sept. 30 to Oct. 1, 2002 – five bursts in fact, and repeating at remarkably constant intervals.”

The team has monitored the Galactic center for new transient sources and for variability in approximately 250 known sources, but the five bursts from the new radio source, named GCRT J1745-3009, were by far the most powerful seen.

The five bursts were of equal brightness, with each lasting about 10 minutes, and occurring every 77 minutes. Although the exact nature of the object remains a mystery, the team members currently believe that GCRT J1745-3009 is either the first member of a new class of objects or an unknown mode of activity of a known source class. (Naval Research Lab press release 3/2/2005 emphasis added)

Will these energetic bursts from Hunab Ku the Galactic core increase in number and intensity as we approach the year 2012? The Mayas would answer a definitive “Yes”.

After approximately ~12,812 years the halfway point in our precessional movement, we are emerging from a period of ‘darkness” characterized by the preceding ages into one which exhibits a re-birth of full consciousness through a hyper-dimensional energetic change taking place now.

Science Corroborates Ancient Wisdom

Today’s scientists although having sophisticated instruments available to measure portions of this energy and the effects created, do not fully understand its transformative powers. Speculation surrounds recent theories of why we are now witnessing unusual activity and changes in our local solar system and planets. Below are a few examples of recent scientific observations showing interplanetary changes. These changes are not unique to only the Earth, and especially its dramatic climate change-

* Earth a precipitous drop in earth’s magnetic field has been developing according to Dr Paul Murdin, of the Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge. Quote: “the measurements lately are showing us that the Earth’s magnetic field is not decreasing in a normal manner, but in a dramatic way…Yet now all heads are up as it is disappearing at an alarming rate at the poles or near the poles, which is an excellent sign the flip (magnetic pole reversal) is close to happening. Intense solar radiation bursts will cause particle storms to batter the atmosphere of Earth-all with solar particles affecting not only Earth but its inhabitants profoundly.”

The magnetosphere shields the surface of the Earth from the charged particles of the solar wind and is generated by electric currents located in many different parts of the Earth. It is compressed on the day (Sun) side due to the force of the arriving particles, and extended on the night side.

* Sun solar activity highest in past 8,000 years. The Sun is burning warmer, for longer, than at any time during the past 11,000 years. (October, 2004 Dr. Sami Solanki, Director of the Max Planck Institute Gottingen, Germany) Solar flare powered proton storm on January 20th 2005, largest in 50 years reached Earth in 15 minutes. Normally travel time is 2+ hours to reach Earth. Next solar storm peak is expected in 2012.

One final compelling piece of information comes from the fossil record. Earth’s fossil record shows a cycle of dramatic and swift changes including mass extinctions occurring in intervals of 26 million years. This is a very interesting set of numbers when cosmology is thrown into the equation. It is estimated that our Milky Way Galaxy makes one full rotation every 26 million years. Studies by Raup & Sepkoski (Science, Vol 241 July 1, 1988) and their conclusions point to extraterrestrial causes.

Although surrounded in controversy, data does imply that of an outside force being a catalyst for evolutionary leaps on Earth. While we are on the verge of repeating this cycle of time, it is not to imply a mass extinction event or massive meteor impact is on the horizon for us, however, this does suggest significant and expedient changes take place on a regular basis.

Suffice to say there is an abundance of scientific data available that suggests great changes are afoot in our local planetary neighborhood beyond our earth; the previous examples are but a minute sample. Soon it will be discovered that this galactic core energy is the main cause effecting the changes noted above. Everything in the path of this galaxy-centered energy is being affected. Human DNA and other DNA life forms on Earth are transforming, and most importantly our accompanying consciousness is feeling, reacting and interacting with these transformative powers once again.

Consider this: a human being is a microcosm of the universe. Going a step further, principles that govern the universe are the same principles found within each of us; therefore, it’s no surprise we should find them collectively in human consciousness. Much like a fractal, we are a part, a copy of a much larger whole without separation once viewed from a higher perspective. Although our bodies contain the building blocks of the universe and vise versa, another component not fully understood today by mainstream science is one in which empowers and mobilizes all- consciousness.

Reuniting Dark & Light, Male & Female, Yin & Yang

“…if you realize that the eventual human goal is to transcend the world of relativity to play in a realm of freedom, then plodding along attached to a theory is unfortunate. When the individual is able to enter a world in which the two aspects of yin and yang return to their original unity, the mission of these two symbols comes to an end.”

-Masanobu Fukuoka

Separation or duality of consciousness sometimes referred to as good/evil, light/dark emerged when our solar system embarked on a departure away from the galactic center about 12,800 years ago. Some refer to that time as the “Fall from Grace”.

We are now witnessing a reuniting of the divine masculine and divine feminine energetic forms blending together in ourselves creating an intelligently ordered progression for an evolutionary leap to higher consciousness.

This process is one of re-balancing that which is out of balance signified through a feeling of separation and division. It should be very clear Earth’s Precession of the Equinox and it’s geometrically reorientation with the Galactic Center’s cosmic energy is a catalyst for tremendous, rapid geophysical changes. And on the human level, a time dominated by spiritual awareness married with cosmic consciousness, rather than life by merely a latent biologic, mental existence.

Upon returning to a point in the cosmos which contains a unified, un-fragmented potential many quickly realize what has occurred because of the shear caused by separation and departure out of the illuminating plane of galactic light. What emerge are powerful souls capable of a miraculous, even magical renaissance of civilization void of the negative impacts caused when duality and separation are present within each person. This catalyzing process is for most, not without self-induced growth instigated by way of a greater, heightened awareness.

Energy fields surrounding our bodies are modified allowing for an influx of new, revitalizing forms of energy. We can allow these to act as a metamorphosing agent flowing freely or, we can hinder this process with negative or unpleasant consequences physically manifesting internally and externally around us.

As expected, symptoms of this reuniting mechanism can be noticed on at least two levels. Physical and non-physical. Much like a typical healing process which occurs naturally within the body, observed are various manifestations brought on by vibrational/frequency induced shifts within the body’s cells, at the level of DNA.

DNA the language of Light

Since DNA contains hydrogen bonds which are a phosphodiester (the backbone of DNA and central to all life on Earth) they essentially act like light activated structures within DNA. DNA could be called the “language of light” since it responds to and changes its structure when immersed in Galactic Center generated light. As our bodies become more in tune while processing energy with a higher vibration and resonance, structures within the cellular makeup experience a metamorphosis.

It appears that simultaneously with bodily changes, an altered, more highly evolved consciousness appears in lock step. Of course on the surface, during this time it can appear that something is very wrong if we are not aware of what potentially is occurring.

A few transitory symptoms (not specific medically related conditions) listed below are associated with the physiological and psychological changes incurred during a transformational balancing process.

1. Fatigue higher than normal

2. Anxiety, depression and panic

3. Emotional sensitivities increase

4. Insomnia, irregular sleep patterns

5. Memory lapses, mental fog, confusion

6. Skin issues, tingling, itching, crawling

7. Headaches, blurred vision, body aches

8. Digestive issues, appetite changes, new food intolerances

The second, non-physical symptoms some of which are noted below:

1. Increased intuition

2. Desire to live purposefully

3. Integrity, truth appreciation

4. Time acceleration, dissolution

5. Successive, life altering events

6. Desiring solitude, retrospection

7. Improved integration of mind, body & spirit

8. Vivid, lucid dreams, altered states of consciousness

On a global scale, Earth’s inhabitants reflected through a collective consciousness, will exhibit similar characteristics both in breaking down institutions and systems with no longer useful value, replaced with fantastic innovations and embracing new social structures that exemplify the principles of service to others in cooperative leadership and partnerships opportunities.

Expect to see a continuation of radical changes in geopolitics, intensification of conflicts, economic policy, governments large and small, business, religion, etc. Look for an escalation of efforts to polarize groups each struggling to retain division and separation through exploiting the power of fear. Evidence to support this can be easily found in the toxic, divisive words used (us/them, win/lose etc.) on major newscasts and print media. During this transition, remember the reason for the symptoms- Nothing is exempt from this transformational momentum; so don’t loose touch with yourself as we transit, embrace the process.

2012 And Beyond Into Unified Consciousness

With all that has been said, there is one last important piece of science before we discuss the ultimate outcome. As surmised earlier, light and more specifically, Galactic generated light effects profound irreversible changes in all that encounters its magnificent power. In the earlier reference implying DNA is the language of light, we have research from a Russian, Dr. Peter Gariaev, known as the Father of “Wave-genetics” doing DNA experiments where he and his colleagues use non-burning lasers to transform frog embryos into salamander embryos.

In simple terms, they had a salamander embryo in one hermetically sealed container and a frog embryo in another; then they applied light from a non-burning laser through the salamander embryo and re-directed that light into the frog embryo. The results where shocking. The frog embryo completely metamorphosed as the cells divided and as the embryo continued to grow, it grew into a salamander! All this was initiated through the light transference of the “DNA light code” embedded into the laser light beam. What this process shows is in effect what is happening on a macro-cosmic level to all of us. The major difference is, the transformational Source-Light is now coming from the Galactic Core through interstellar space, through our sun, then permeating our Earth and subsequently our bodies.

Many of us are aware of our body’s unique energy fields, some of which are scientifically proven to exist and married or associated with an internal organ. In this portion we discuss how in esoteric terms, the incredible power they contain to transform when all are balanced and unified together. As we approach closer to the Galactic Center and pass through it around 2012-2016 or so, this understanding and application of our profound power from within will play a pivotal role in our collective re-birth. Chakras (translated as wheel or rotation) as they are referred to, are best understood from the Hindu perspective beginning around 1200 BC, they contain 7 primary energy vortexes or psychic points.

They are starting from the lowest to highest-

1. Base or Root Chakra (last bone in spinal cord)

2. Chakra (ovaries/prostate)

3. Solar Plexus Chakra (navel area)

4. Heart Chakra (heart area)

5. Throat Chakra (throat and neck area)

6. Brow or Third Eye Chakra (pineal gland)

7. Crown Chakra (Top of the head)

Aura As energy is moved through prayer (thought) or meditation, it is transmitted one stage or Chakra at a time, up from the base or Root Chakra ultimately to the Crown Chakra. This is where the light form energy of unconditional love combined with wisdom transforms the individual embodying these light forms with a highly evolved state of consciousness.

A final appropriate, quote from Jesus that is remarkably profound and implies this transformational power is within all of us, is found in the book of Luke 11:34: “The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.”

Many consider or think of God is Light, and the reference to when the eye is single, is alluding to the 6th Chakra or Third Eye connected to our pineal gland. If then the eye is dark, there can be no light in the body.

While this indeed is a birthright available to all, discipline and practice is a pre-requisite for attainment. It is the premise of this article to conclude we are now in a position caused by external forces to more easily (relative term) bring us to a point of near-spontaneous leap in unified consciousness. A valid point is this- All of this is not off in some “future” date as the process has already begun, it is occurring in the now. Again, it is the inner that creates the outer. Only now we have available to us an accelerating window created through an influx of light with its life-transforming powers, offering each of us the opportunity to embrace and create a miraculous, magical life.

Allow The Healing To Arise

We now can expedite the healing process that feels long over due. Each of us plays an important role as we should now understand that a new, better world is one which we are responsible for creating. Truly the “Kingdom of Heaven” is within all of us and just as important as that statement is the fact that we can and must by divine right, create it outwardly. Each of us must diffuse the limitations fear imposes since it is an illusion that can only exists in a vacuum where universal truth is denied. By replacing fears with truth, we are not only emboldened to move progressively forward, we willingly navigate away from calamity and catastrophic destruction.

Everything that is happening now points to what is referred to as “Zero-Point” where time and space collapse as we enter into a higher dimension. With the capabilities not afforded to us previously from behind the veil, those of a service-to-self disposition will not pass through the shift due to their physical and spiritual makeup. There is good reason for that proposition. In such a dimension where thought forms manifest materially instantaneously, there could not exist those of a vibratory nature based in fear. That is a universal, natural law. Hopefully, the reasons for that are obvious. Within a unity consciousness based realm, intentions in that higher dimension, (as we now do much slower in the third dimension) allow us to co-create a new reality without limitations.

In the process of stepping out of the shadows naturally imposed in a realm of separation based on the fragmented duality of both our natures, we will pass gracefully by a deliberate conscious effort into a cosmos filled with grandeur beyond what or mortal minds can conceive. We shall be welcomed with unconditional love into a galactic, extraterrestrial family of other co-creators who are eternally living beyond the constraints of space and time.

The Seven Churches of the Revelation – As the Seven Spiritual Centers in the Body Pt II


THE THRONE, TWENTY-FOUR ELDERS, SEVEN SPIRITS, LAKE OF GLASS, AND FOUR BEASTS

A New Condition throughout the Body

Now that the Spirit has addressed and awakened all seven centers within the body to the spiritualization process, it takes the body to a new level of vibration. Now a throne is in the midst of heaven, and the higher, spiritual self is seated upon this throne. Around the higher self and the throne are the twenty-four elders, which Cayce identifies as the twelve paired (24) cranial nerves within the brain. Energy is being emitted from the brain (“flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder”), and the seven chakras and glands are turned toward the throne (“seven lamps of fire burning”), which are the seven spirits of God in the midst of the throne. Before the throne are the four beasts we first saw in Ezekiel’s vision, then in Daniel’s vision, and now here again in John’s vision. We find these same beasts represented in ancient Egyptian mysticism as the four children of Horus. Horus was the messiah of the ancient Egyptians, rescuing the world from his uncle Set’s domination (Set is ancient Egypt’s Satan). The four children of Horus are wrapped like mummies on a lotus, subdued and intoxicated with the fragrance of the great flower. They stand before the throne-seated Osiris, Horus’ father and guardian of the way through the Netherworld.

According to Cayce, these beasts are “the four destructive influences that make the greater desire for the carnal forces, that arise as the beasts within self to destroy.” We have learned what these destructive influences are from the Spirit’s comments to the first four churches: (1) leaving our first love; (2) fear; (3) anger, impulsive reactions, and spirit-killing urges; and (4) living life without spiritual purposes and ideals. All of these destructive influences are personified in Cain. Though he first sought God’s love, he later didn’t desire it. He killed his brother impulsively in anger and spitefulness, only to then become so afraid that he could not go on without God’s promise of protection. Finally, he goes out to live life for himself and his own gratification, without any spiritual interests or intentions. Satan claims that Job is the same way, having no interest in God and the Spirit, and would curse God to His face if He touched Job’s material, physical life, and being. Cayce says that these destructive influences must be met; as God says to Cain, “Sin is couching at the door, its desire is for you, but you must master it.”

As the Revelation continues, the four lower glands are raised to higher vibrations, turning away from material, earthly pursuits and contributing to the spiritualization of the body (“the four beasts gave glory and honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne”). When they do this, it affects the cranial nerves (“the twenty-four elders will fall down before him who sits on the throne”), and they in turn begin to contribute to the spiritualization of the body (“cast their crowns to him who sits on the throne”). Then the spiritual self is able to open the seals on each of the spiritual chakras of the body. Cayce states that the book with the seven seals is the human body. The only part of us that is truly worthy to do this is that part that has crucified self-centered desire sufficiently to allow God’s will to fully enter. This one is identified in the Revelation as “the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the root and offspring of David,” all terms associated with the Messiah, only this is the little messiah within each of us; our spiritual self reborn, created by God and sent to redeem our physical selves. This self has made its will so subordinate to God’s that it is represented as a lamb. It is in the spirit of the Lamb of God that we may safely open the seals of the spiritual centers of our bodies.

THE SEVEN SEALS & THE SEVEN TRUMPETS

Cleansing & Uniting the Seven Centers

Now that the seven spiritual centers are awakened, the higher self and the life-force are raised and again seated upon the throne. The lower urges are turned away from their interests and the cranial nerves are firing with spiritual influences. We begin a series of cleansings through the seven bodily centers. Prompted by John’s vision of the four colored horses, Cayce picks up on the colors for each center and proceeds to add musical notes, key words from the Lord’s prayer, the four elements, the endocrine glands, and even planets within our solar system! There is so much information that the original group working directly with Edgar Cayce created charts to keep track of everything. I’ve also created charts based on the originals, but with supplemental information. See the illustrations section of this manual.

We might ask, how could the planets in the solar system have any relevance to the spiritual centers and endocrine glands in our bodies? Cayce’s answer is that we are parts of the Universal Consciousness, and as such we have relationship to the Universe and all that is in it. At first glance it may seem paradoxical that these outer influences are also within us: spiritually, mentally, and physically and that universal “things,” such as planets, find a relating point within our physical bodies. But, as the Ancient Egyptian god Hermes (Thoth) stated it: “As within so without, as above so below.” It is not so much the occult science of astrology that we are referring to as it is the microcosmic and macrocosmic nature of life. The human body is arranged in a manner that reflects the arrangement of the universe. Here’s one of Cayce’s best explanations of this. I have italicized a key line and his stenographer capitalized words that Cayce emphasized by raising his voice during a reading:

As we find, Mercury, Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, Venus – with Mars in an abstract position – all becoming a part of this entity’s experience; not because of bodily birth but because of the entity as a soul.

For the entity finds itself body, mind and soul, and recognizes – or may become aware of the manifestation of the Godhead in the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit. He finds himself then a counterpart, a shadow of all that is; and that within his own self EACH CELL of its body is but a miniature of the universe without its own body, its own cell of positive and negative force that applies to the material, the mental and the spiritual. Indeed then the body is the temple of the living God, where He hath promised to meet thee in thy searching, in thy seeking to know what ye may do; not for the gratifying of thine own selfish self alone but to fulfill the purpose for which ye came into being ­ to be then an emissary, and advocate, yea, a sign; that others who have lost their way (as YE may have lost thine) may take hope and gain more awareness of the God-force that IS latent and manifested within thine own self.

Following this philosophical line of thought, each spiritual center in the body has a corresponding relationship with the seven primary colors of the spectrum, the seven basic notes of the Western musical scale, seven key words in the Lord’s prayer, and seven planets within this star system or solar system. Nevertheless, Cayce does hedge his teaching on this in several readings, explaining that these correlations that we are making are only relatively correct because of the many variables in human spiritual development that would cause another color, or note, or word, or planet to better represent that center. The variables are these: (1) cycles in each person’s development, or (2) a particular individual soul’s unique experiences, and therefore, karmic influences. But for us all generally, these are relatively correct as we have them (and in the chart in the illustrations section of this manual).

As we go through the opening of the seals and the sounding of the trumpets, Cayce says that we are going through the purifications that influence spiritual development through the vibrational changes in the body. The way these purifications are described in the Revelation causes one to believe that these are terrifyingly devastating to the physical self. However, Cayce explains that as the progress is made toward giving birth to the spiritual self (which occurs later in chapter 12 of the Revelation), the physical self must become more humble, meek, long-suffering, and patient. It must decrease while the spiritual self increases, as John the Baptist said of himself and the coming Jesus. Cayce says that the devastating sufferings represent those influences that meet and conquer self for the greater spiritual development and the creating of a oneness of the individual’s purposes and desires. The two parts of our being (human and divine) can be at war with one another unless these cleansings occur and a singularity of purpose is achieved by subduing earthly desires and accentuating heavenly, spiritual desires. Therefore, the fire is to purify; hail, to crystallize opposing purposes into oneness of purpose. Less and less of self’s desires and more and more of God’s desires are depicted as the destruction of a third of the earth, the sea, and the heavens, followed by the falling of a great star from heaven, representing the coming of heavenly influences upon the earthly self. The Sun is darkened so that the Son may give a new light to the body. All the terrifying events that occur during the opening and sounding of the seven spiritual centers under the influence of the higher self upon the throne of consciousness are symbolic of this great transition, this great preparation for the birth of the new, God-centered self.

Let’s go through the opening of the seals and the soundings of the trumpets for each center. Though these are done separately in the Revelation, we will do them together here for the sake of clarity and focus.

OPENING THE 7 SEALS & SOUNDING THE 7 TRUMPETS

OPENING THE FIRST SEAL & SOUNDING THE FIRST TRUMPET

The White Horse – Conquering – 1/3 of the Earth Burns Up

The higher self, in the form and spirit of the Lamb of God, and in coordination with God’s will, opens the seals of the body.

When the first seal is opened, out comes the first of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse. The first horseman is riding a white horse, wearing a crown, and carrying a bow. His mission is to conquer the negative influences and win this center for the spiritual self. These are the outer things that are related to this center: (1) the color red, (2) the note do, (3) the word bread in the Lord’s prayer, (4) the planet Saturn, (5) the element earth and of course, (6) the church of Ephesus, (7) the gonads (ovaries or testes), and (8) the beast “like a calf.” In Cayce’s cosmology, the influence of Saturn is to recast all “insufficient matter” or “spiritualize” the flesh. Here we see the white horse rider conquering flesh for the Spirit.

When the first trumpet sounds, hail and fire, mixed with blood, are thrown down upon the earthly influences. Cayce says that hail is symbolic of “crystallizing” or uniting ideals under the spiritual influence, fire is purifying earthly influences, and the blood of the Lamb of God symbolizes our being cleansed from all sin (a clear reference to 1 John 1:7, “If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.”). Here is an example of Cayce’s view on the metaphysical and, for that matter, the physical power of the blood:

(Q) Please give advice which will aid me, physically, mentally and spiritually, in fulfilling my destiny in life of aiding my fellow man.

(A) Manifesting in self that which is meted to the body, mentally, physically, spiritually, that is necessary to bring those influences within self, those conditions mentally and physically within self, as to cleanse or to make more in accord with that which is the birthright of every physical being – to be perfect within itself, through the blood as cleanseth from unrighteous-ness in material, in the mental, and in the spiritual plane. Hence, as there is created that consciousness within self of being whole, or one with that Creative Energy as manifested by Him, through those channels that have been set as the ways, the manners for perfecting of such a consciousness within self, then may the body be that channel to be the greater blessings to those about the body. But use that thou hast in hand day by day! For, that which is used gives the ability, the understanding, to apply that which may be needed from day to day.

The first sounding also burns up a third of the trees and grasses of the earth, again symbolic of removing earthly influences.

OPENING THE SECOND SEAL & SOUNDING THE SECOND TRUMPET

The Red Horse – War – 1/3 of the Sea Becomes Blood

When the second seal is opened, out comes a horseman wielding a great sword and riding a red horse. His mission is to take peace away from the earth and make men slay one another. The spirit cannot allow us to be terrestrial, earthly beings forever. We must be forced to seek the Spirit, even if it means war. We were, are, and will be again celestial, heavenly beings made in the image of our infinite, universal Creator. We cannot be allowed to remain terrestrial, physical beings.

These are the outer things that are related to this center: (1) the color orange, (2) the note re, (3) the word temptation in the Lord’s prayer, (4) the planet Neptune, (5) the element water, and of course, (6) the church of Smyrna, (7) the cells of Leydig, and (8) the beast like a man. In Cayce’s cosmology the influence of Neptune is to accentuate the mystical-spiritual forces in our lives.

When the second trumpet is sounded, a great mountain, burning with fire, is thrown into the sea, causing a third of the sea to become blood (the cleansing concept again). A third of the sea creatures die, and a third of the ships are destroyed, again symbolic of reducing the earthly, bodily influences to allow for more spiritual influences. Water and the sea symbolize emotions and urges that lie below the surface of consciousness but have tremendous influence over our actions, thoughts, and desires. These must be and are destroyed. The mountain is “the mount,” the sixth chakra that has direct connection to this second chakra. It sends its message crashing into the emotions and subliminal urges of this center to subdue its lower influences and allow for more of its higher purposes to awaken.

OPENING THE THIRD SEAL & SOUNDING THE THIRD TRUMPET

The Black Horse – Famine – A Great Star Falls From Heaven

When the third seal is opened, out comes a horseman with a pair of scales in his hand, riding a black horse. His mission is to measure out limited portions to the earth, allowing more room for spiritual influences. But he is instructed not to harm the oil and the wine, symbolic of those things that are only gained through experiences that squeeze the deeper essences out of life and grow wiser with age.

These are the outer things that are related to this center: (1) the color yellow, (2) the note mi, (3) the word debts or trespasses in the Lord’s prayer, (4) the planet Mars, (5) the element fire, and of course, (6) the church of Pergamos, (7) the adrenals and solar plexus, and (8) the beast like a lion. In Cayce’s cosmology, the influence of Mars is to accentuate temper, madness, and contention, also associated with the adrenaline that flows into the bloodstream from this center (correlated with the adrenal glands).

When the trumpet sounding occurs for this center, a great star from heaven falls to the earth, which Cayce says is heavenly influences (the star) coming into the body (the earth). A third of the waters of the earth become bitter, and many men die from drinking it. Again, this is a symbolic way of saying that the earthly influences are becoming less desirable, less tasty, causing earthly influences to be subdued and heavenly ones to be magnified. Waters again symbolize emotions and unseen influences that are below the surface of consciousness. All must be subdued in order for the spiritualization to take hold and grow.

OPENING THE FOURTH SEAL & SOUNDING THE FOURTH TRUMPET

The Pale Horse – Death & Hades – The Heavens are Darkened

When the fourth seal is opened, out comes a horseman named “Death,” and “Hades” is following him. Death rides a pale or ashen horse. His mission is to kill a fourth of the earth with sword, famine, pestilence, and wild beasts, making more room for spiritual influences.

These are the outer things that are related to this center: (1) the color green, (2) the note fa, (3) the word evil in the Lord’s prayer, (4) the planet Venus, (5) the element air, and of course, (6) the church of Thyatira, (7) the thymus, and (8) the beast like an eagle. In Cayce’s cosmology, the influence of Venus leads one to be loving, considerate, even-tempered and interested in art, music, and beauty, all benevolent features of the heart chakra.

When the fourth trumpet is sounded, a third of the sun, moon, and stars are smitten so that their light will be darkened. As mentioned earlier, Cayce says that this is to make room for the light of the Son, awakening the body to the true, eternal, inner light that God will bring with Him.

The Son symbolizes our heritage with our Creator. As Psalm 82 teaches, “You are gods, sons and daughters of the Most High, all of you; nevertheless, you shall die like men and women, and fall like any prince or princess.” Our human self must die to its interests and desires in order for the godly self to arise from its slumber and regain its place by the side of our Creator, the Most High.

After this sounding an eagle is seen flying in midheaven, saying, “Woe, woe, woe, to those who dwell on the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!” Cayce identified these four lower centers with the earthly portion of our nature, and the next three higher centers with the heavenly portion. Therefore, it is not surprising that “those who dwell on the earth” are going to have great woe when the heavenly influence comes into full glory throughout the body. The body will lose much of its earthly urges and desires, leaving those who have feasted on these and developed appetites for them to suffer the next three woes.

OPENING THE FIFTH SEAL & SOUNDING THE FIFTH TRUMPET

The Martyrs – White Robes – The Bottomless Pit

When the fifth seal is opened, the souls of the martyrs come out from underneath the altar in heaven. They had been slain for their testimony to the word of God. They now want to know how much longer God is going to tolerate the negative influences in the earth. They are given white robes and told to rest a little while longer. Soon the process of enlightenment will be completed.

These are the outer things that are related to this center: (1) the color gray or blue, (2) the note so, (3) the word will in the Lord’s prayer, (4) the planet Uranus, (5) the element ether, and of course, (6) the church of Sardis, and (7) the thyroid. There is no beast because we have moved beyond the earthly centers (the four lower ones). In Cayce’s cosmology, the influence of Uranus brings forth the extremes in temperament, in enthusiasm, in zeal, likes and dislikes, and an interest in the unusual and the occult. This center is also correlated with the harbinger or herald, and therefore with John the Baptist, who baptizes with cleansing water and calls for repentance, and prepares the way for the coming of the One who baptizes with fire and resurrection. Each are aspects within our own hearts and minds.

When the fifth trumpet is sounded, the star that had fallen from heaven and the key to the bottomless pit are given to the fifth angel, or heavenly influence, which we have identified earlier with God’s will rather than our will. The angel opens the bottomless pit, which Cayce says is symbolic of all those things within us that are “the most uncomely,” that are far from the presence of God. These must have the light shined upon them and be destroyed by the angel of the abyss: Abaddon in Hebrew, and Apollyon in Greek, meaning respectively “destruction” and “destroyer.” These influences within us that are incompatible with God’s presence and all-knowing mind are “lost in the beauty of the Son,” Cayce says, and our human self arises to “the glory of the star as in the Son ­ not sun, but Son.” (Here again we must keep in mind that “Son” refers to our heritage as sons and daughters of the Creator and the resurrection of that truth within our hearts, minds, and actions.) Though this woe causes many to seek death, the transformation of these hidden evils leaves us with lighter hearts, purer minds, and we are thus more compatible with the coming Spirit, which is All-Knowing and Omnipresent, from whom nothing can be hidden. The dark pit of our heart and mind must be opened and cleared of all its darkness in order for the All-Knowing to fully come in our consciousness.

OPENING THE SIXTH SEAL & SOUNDING THE SIXTH TRUMPET

Earthquake – Wrath of the Lamb – Four Angels and Their Army

Now that the pit has been opened and cleared, a great earthquake occurs within us, the sun is completely blackened, the moon is turned to blood, the stars fall from heaven like a fig tree shaken by a great wind, the sky is split apart like a scroll, and the rulers of the earth search for places to hide from the rising presence of the Lamb and its wrath toward those things that are incompatible to God’s complete presence. The Bible is filled with prophecies of this type, spoken of as “The great and terrible day of the coming of the Lord,” and this phrase is usually followed by the question, “Who can stand against Him?” Here these words come to life in the final line of chapter six of the Revelation. The body is falling away from its earthly appetites; the rising spiritual vibrations are opening the hardened flesh body like a great earthquake, and the stars of heaven’s energy are coming down upon the enlivened, sanctified vessel that the body and mind have become.

When the sixth trumpet is sounded, heaven releases four angels who have been prepared for this very “hour and day and month and year” to further cleanse a third of the earth. Then, out of heaven descends the higher self, clothed in a cloud, with a rainbow around his head, a face like the sun, feet like fire, and in his hand is the little opened book with all seven of its seals opened, representing the newly opened body with its seven spiritual centers. The descending Spirit places his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land, representing his power over the body’s emotions and flesh. He cries out, and seven peals of thunder rumble throughout the sanctified body, which has now become the temple of the living god, made in the image of the Most High God. John is not allowed to tell us what the seven peals of thunder uttered throughout his body; each of us will have to experience that for ourselves. Our godly self declares that there will be no further delay. When the seventh angel sounds his trumpet, then the mystery of God is finished. Then this godly portion of John’s being hands him the little book and tells him to eat it. John reports to us that it was sweet in the mouth, but bitter in the belly, and Cayce explains that this indicates that spiritual truth is beautiful to look at and sweet in the tasting, but at times is bitter in the applying and living of it in daily life. Here are Cayce’s further comments on this important phase of the Revelation process:

How did the Son in the earth become as an intermediator between sinful man and an All-Wise, All-Merciful God? By going through or experiencing, or in giving to, through the very sufferings in the body, the right, the purpose, the aim to be in that position!

Now, man having attained same by this study must prophesy – apply – prophesy IS apply – before many in many experiences, in many ways, in many environs, in many lands. All of these are a part and parcel of same. How did He put it as He gave, “I will bring to your remembrance ALL things, from the foundations of the world.”

Then as it has been experienced by those who have taken hold of, who have combined the book (that is the book of Life), into the experience, it becomes within its body then a part and parcel of – and is to be expended in its relationships to the environs in that of prophecy, yes; in experiences before kings, yes; yea as beggars; yea as rulers; yea as those in authority; yea as those authoritative over.

THINK of how this is shown in the life of the Master himself; He that made man, yet under the authority and the will of man by the mere giving of self in the experience of passing through same. Not that these were needed other than that it might be fulfilled, what? Prophecy, as had been given in man’s search for God.

Then as this has been found, as is illustrated here by John, in the taking of the book and in becoming these, each then must pass in its experience through the same sources.

Suffering is a part of the journey, especially for the outer, physical self, which must lay down its desires in order to give birth to its true, eternal self.

These are the outer things that are related to this center: (1) the color purple or indigo, (2) the note la, (3) the word name in the Lord’s prayer, (4) the planet Mercury, (5) the “element” cloud, a higher vibration of water, and of course, (6) the church of Philadelphia, and (7) the pineal gland. In Cayce’s cosmology, the influence of Mercury brings the mental powers, as reasoning rather than simply sentiment.

OPENING THE SEVENTH SEAL & SOUNDING THE SEVENTH TRUMPET

Silence for a Half Hour – The Golden Censer with Incense

The Kingdoms of the World and the Lord Unite

Finally, the seventh seal is opened and there is silence in heaven for about a half hour, the ultimate achievement of attunement to God, as stated by the psalmist in Psalm 46: “Be still, and know that I am God.” The seven angels, or angelic influences of the seven spiritual centers of the body, now stand before God. They receive the seven trumpets for the seven soundings. Another angel burns incense in a golden censer. The fragrance of the incense is added to the prayers of the saints and goes out before God. Then, the angel throws the censer to the earth, causing peals of thunder, flashes of lightning, and earthquakes.

When the seventh trumpet is sounded, loud voices from heaven cry out: “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of the Lord, and of His Messiah; and He will reign forever and ever.” The twenty-four elders (twelve paired cranial nerves) worship God, saying, “We give Thee thanks, O Lord God, the Almighty, who is and was, because Thou hast taken Thy great power and hast begun to reign.” Then all cells of the body are judged according to their level of attunement and at-onement with this new reign. And then the temple of God is opened, and the ark of the covenant appears in the temple, causing flashes of lightning, peals of thunder, earthquakes, and a great hailstorm. The physical body has now reached a level of cleansing, vibration, and attunement to become the temple of God. Cayce describes it this way:

As the Book of Life then is opened, there is seen the effect of that which now has been attained by the opening of the system, the body, the mind; all of those effects that have been created by the ability of the entity to, in the physical, … attune self to the consciousness of being at-one with the divine within.

Now we see those in the material world using these influences for self-exaltation, self-indulgence, self-glorification; and yet we see those using same for the glory, the understanding, the knowledge, the wisdom of the Father.

It is done.

When Does the Age of Aquarius Start?


As a species, we are currently crossing from the Age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius. Despite the fact that numerous buyers keep in mind the Age of Pisces to start at 12 months with the birth of Jesus with Aquarian Age starting at 2000, most astronomers agree that the Age of Pisces in reality start in year 498 Do.E., indicating entry into Aquarius in 2658 Do.E.

Less than the Age of Pisces we have found the Piscean archetypes of sacrifice of the individual ego, universal have a passion for and compassion, assimilation, and the considerably more adverse projections of illusion, fantasy and delusion. Every astrological age has been represented by a deistic pantheon the conclude of just about every age is marked by the ending of the worship of that pantheon. The Piscean Age has been marked by the development of the 3 leading monotheistic religions, each and every of which claims to be the only accurate just one, and the tried dissolution of the unique ego.

As we transfer from the Piscean age into Aquarius, the awakener, we are being revealed that the Emperor doesn’t have any clothes, that any unreality upon which we have primarily based our religious foundations will be shattered in the upcoming yrs. The ideas in The Da Vinci Code have been available for 2000 yrs, but they are only now erupting into the public awareness. What will this necessarily mean for humanity?

The Astrological Ages

The equatorial bulge of the earth reasons a shifting in the earth’s axis and the level at which the Sun at the vernal equinox factors to the zodiacal constellations. This phenomenon is acknowledged as the “Precession” and produces the period of time of 25,920 decades that we call the “Superior Yr.” The “Marvelous 12 months” is divided into twelve “Beneficial Ages” each of somewhere around 2160 several years. Because of the “orb of impact,” or “orb,” which describes the inescapable fact that a adjust in signal makes itself well-known multiple degrees just before the actual adjust (also known as the “cusp”), there is some adaptability to the 2160 determine. Although the Outstanding Ages unquestionably go back again to the formation of the Earth by itself, the Ages that are recognized to us are:

Age of Leo: 10,300-eight,140 BCE.

Current scientific routines, searching at erosion styles, agree with the ideal sage Edgar Cayce, who dated the effective Sphinx of Egypt back to a time period of good rains in that place, a little something which hasn’t took place simply because the conclude of the ice age (often considered to be ten,five hundred BCE). Even if modest is well-known of this time period, it could have presided above a “Golden Age” (Leo procedures precious metal) the place the Sun was worshipped as the primordial god of light and life.

Age of Most cancers: eight,140-6,000 BCE.&nbsp

Most cancers is the sign of the Moon and the Mom, and this Age corresponded to the worship of the Impressive Goddess and the Moon. Cancer is a drinking water indication, and more and more scientists presume that this time period corresponded to the close of the ice age and the Incredible Deluge of myth that resulted from catastrophic melting of glaciers. As people commenced to form tribes they grew to become added anxious with friends and family groupings and genealogy, a different hallmark of Cancer. Adult females were taken into consideration the resource of creation simply because they bore the small children.

Age of Gemini: six,000-three,800 BCE.

Gemini guidelines communication and speech, and this age observed the growth of the 1st created languages and establishment of villages. The cult of Twin Gods in creation myths started during the course of this period of time (twins represented the masculine and feminine theory). The wheel and plough are invented (Gemini guidelines ideas and thoughts), aiding in the spread of agriculture.

Age of Taurus: 3,800-1,660 BCE.

Agriculture (Taurus is dominated by the Earth and Venus) can make its way in the course of cultures in the Americas, Africa and Asia. The to begin with temples ended up developed in Mesopotamia and the 1st jewellery and aesthetic objects (Venus) are produced. Bull cults (Taurus is symbolized by the bull) ended up dominant in Greece and Egypt, and the worship of the further sexualized goddess Innana/ Ishtar/ Ashtoreth also became in demand.

Age of Aries (one,662 BCE – 498 CE)

This was the Age of the Hero and the Warrior. The eruption of the volcano Santorini in 1680 ruined the Minoan civilization and along with it their Bull cult (age of Taurus). This age was marked synchronistically by the Indo-Aryan (Aries) migration and the beginnings of cattle domestication (conquering the Bull god). Rituals of the Mithraic cult involved slaughtering of bulls, which has come down to us at present as the bullfight. The gods of the Age of Aries, as in every age previously them, eradicated the gods that preceded them.

Minor is recognized about the origins of the Aryan people, but they were being warriors possessing army engineering exceptional to that of their neighbors, facilitating their takeover of very much of Asia while in this period of time. The Arien Age also witnessed the initially Olympic games in Greece and the growth of the Greek and Roman empire. The Hero archetype was central to the Greek and Roman cultures, with their gods who were being often working on battle. Yahweh, the god of the Jewish families who gained prevalence for the period of this time, mixed characteristics of both equally the Warrior and the Hero. He demanded the transformation of the Hero in his disciple Abraham, and advised on military services conquests.

Lastly our own&nbspAge of Pisces (498 – two,658 CE ),&nbspsymbolized by the Fish, and symbolizing the Sacred descending to the Mundane planet. Pisces principles universal compassion, sacrifice of the specific Moi, and martyrdom. Pisces is a feminine signal, nonetheless through the reign of Pisces we have witnessed the suppression and re-emergence of the feminine, and no story tells this extremely as radically as the transformation of Mary Magdalene, the legitimate tale driving The DaVinci Code. The Church a short while ago admitted that Mary Magdalene was not a prostitute but a valid follower. However, when the Nag Hammadi scrolls ended up learned and translated, it was exposed that Mary was a bit more than a follower but an real apostle, providing increase anew to theories of Mary acquiring been wife to Jesus.

The tale of the existence and dying of Jesus the Christ and the evolution of the religion that bears his title mirrors the Piscean age completely. Pisces is indication of the drinking water element, and the origin of Christianity finds Jesus currently being baptized in a river, symbolizing the dissolution of the personal moi into the river of faith, a ritual that proceeds currently. Even in pre-Christian moments, the sacred wells of the British Isles have been locations in which the gods and goddesses would be current. The teachings of Jesus convey the Piscean values of compassion, common love and brotherhood. All the same, previous 2000 a long time have not consistently expressed all those principles in their highest type.

The contact for the conclusion of individualism and the requirement for blind perception that marks the evolution of the Piscean age has led to the a little more negative manifestation of Pisces: illusion and delusion. The famed Dark Ages in western civilization transpired considering the fact that the ruling Roman Catholic Church desired to suppress all experience and continue to keep their adherents in the literal darkness. At that time the realm of knowledge distribute to the Arab world, which is now in its individual Dark Age.

The date for the conclusion of the Piscean age is in considerably dispute. As earlier reviewed, most would like the Ages to match into a pleasant 2000 yr bundle which would put us squarely in the beginning of the Aquarian age. Then again, astronomical calculations inform us that this is not genuine, and that the Aquarian age technically will not get started until such time as just about 2600 CE. Irrespective, we are in the very last decan of Pisces and moving absent from the Pisces influence of sacrifice of the particular person ego. As the Piscean mists start out to independent, the expertise and being familiar with that Aquarius needs is commencing to make itself regarded.

The faith of Christianity is developed near the demise and resurrection of Jesus, still for 2000 several years that completely tenet has been in doubt. The 4 gospels each individual notify a 100 % several story of the conclusion of the daily life of Jesus, and there are no info of the resurrection. As with a great deal of the Christian story (and I signify no offence to Christians listed here), the story of the resurrection must be taken on faith. There are some issues as to no matter whether Jesus even died on the cross – a mysterious personal named Simon the Cyrene provided to have Jesus’ cross, and some theorize that it was Simon that truly died on the cross and not Jesus. Other folks concern whether the “vinegar and gall” supplied to Jesus wasn’t snake venom that brought about him to fall into a swoon, thus fooling the Romans into pondering he experienced died when in reality he was in a deep unconscious state. Pontius Pilate “marvelled if he have been already lifeless” and improved the proven procedure of leaving him on the cross to be eaten by carrion, but in its place authorized that his overall body be introduced down to go away in his tomb. A good number of consider that Jesus and Mary had been then spirited out of Jerusalem and taken to Europe just where they lived happily at any time once.

For generations these tips were being suppressed and their adherents tortured and murdered for heresy, but in the 20th century these tips commenced to spring forth anew these kinds of as the e book Holy Blood and Holy Grail. Initial published in 1982, this guide was a cult basic until finally the Dan Brown’s novel “The Da Vinci Code” appeared on the scene. Evidently the collective consciousness is now all set to soak up these concepts and start to look at the truth that lies powering the faith.

As we enter the Aquarian Age, what will our new gods be? Aquarius guidelines technologies and radical assumed, creation and ascension. The last Aquarian age (all around 28,000 BC) marked the stop of the Neanderthal and the birth of Cro Magnon gentleman. Will our species be similarly transformed in excess of the next 2500 decades? We can look at to predict the future, but lifespan has a way of evolving in ideas that are difficult to foresee.

Nibiru, December 21, 2012 – The Lies And Deceit


An creator named Zecharia Sitchin not too long ago uncovered and translated an historic Sumerian text saying that a there is a tenth earth just outside Pluto and its name is Nibiru. Nibiru is a Sumerian God identical to Zeus of the Greeks. He also stated that this Nibiru and Tiamat collided with each other creating the asteroid belt and the minimal planets as well as Earth. He also said that Nibiru would pass on our Photo voltaic Process every single 3600 several years & it is inhabited by the “Annunakis” or “Nephilim” by the Christians.

The latest reports noticed out that the Mayan Calendar’s prolonged count is going to conclude on December 21, 2012. While on the Web, a blog termed Zetatalk exposed that this Planet Nibiru is likely to collide on December 21, 2012. They also explained that by April 2003, you’ll find it heading to be obvious and by May possibly fifteen, 2009 the world will be seen by the naked eye on the Southern Hemisphere and they are also professing that they have photos and video clips as evidence.

If Nibiru passes on our planet. Our magnetic poles will align to the crossing earth thereby constructing devastating outcomes on our world like earthquakes, massive tsunamis, solar flares & the like. Earth will prevent rotating for a week which would result in all of these destructions. Despite the fact that the Christians also assume that this is the coming of Christ and named this planet “Wormwood” just as stated on the Revelation that a brilliant star from the sky will arrive and produce earthquakes & other sorts of all-natural catastrophes and the NASA is making an attempt to conceal the reality.

Some of the their statements might probably choose terrifying but Nibiru is only a hoax. Considering that there is no these matter as a earth Nibiru. Then again, there is a tenth earth, it happens to be name is Eris and it can be situated in the Kuiper Belt but it is in no collision program with Earth.

Zetatalk is founded by a Alien contactee or psychic Nancy Lieder. It was 1995 when she proposed that the entire world would finish on 2003 by this Nibiru matter. But as 1995 up to this working day absolutely nothing uncommon transpired. What did she do? Re-scheduled the doomsday on December 21, 2012.

The Mayan Calendar ended on December 21, 2012 but it returns again to the starting just like your speedometer when it reaches it really is maximum then it goes back again to zero! It is really extremely identical with our Gregorian Calendar (the calendar we are working with) as before long as it reaches December 31 it goes back to Jan 1 and the cycle goes on and on.

All of these images and films are purely misinterpreted. Most usual solutions are as of Lens flare & Reflection of the Sunshine.

Earth just cannot give up rotating for a week. Even for a 2nd. It is in opposition to the legal guidelines of physics. Pluto has an orbital speed of 4.666 km/s. Neptune’s speed is approx. five.43 km/s. Uranus has a pace of six.81 km/s. even while Jupiter has 13.07 km/s and Saturn has 9.forty km/s. Though Earth has a velocity of 29.78 km/s as a result obtaining an orbital period of time of 365 times or 1 year. Pluto’s orbital period of time or the total revolution round the Sunlight normally requires about 90,000 days or 248 yrs.

On April 2003, Zetatalk stated that Planet X is just powering Pluto and would by now be noticeable all over May 2009. Now they are stating that this world is previously behind the Sunlight. How could a earth from a distant area could orbit so quickly in a span of 6 a long time? They rarely offered any facts at all, just illustrations of the passage of the earth.

Rumors distribute that on May well 15, 2009 Earth Nibiru would be visible around the southern hemisphere. But absolutely nothing took place nor anything at all bizarre in the skies.

If our planet’s magnetic poles are aligning toward Nibiru then what about the other planets? What about Jupiter? Saturn? The Sunlight? The challenge with the doomsayers are the only detail they contemplate about is the Earth. They have 100 % disregarded what would materialize on the other planets. Why? Simply because they are unable to uncover sufficient excuses to feed your lies. There have been so a lot shots of world X given that 2003. But no Stressful Proof.

The bottom line is all we have to do is hold out until finally that day comes. If Nibiru is realistic then we will die, if not, then everyday living goes on.

Careers In Herpetology And Herpetoculture


So you think you want to establish a career where you get to work with reptiles and amphibians. If that is the case, this article is for you. Why did I write an article about getting what seems to be an easy-to-obtain job? First, there are a lot of people who contact zoos, museums, and websites asking just that question. While there are some pamphlets available that briefly address the question (ASIH, no date; SSAR, 1985), there are few other published resources available (Barthel (2004); Sprackland and McKeown, 1995, 1997; Sprackland, 2000). There are some guides to entering the academic world of biology (i.e., Janovy, 1985), but these generally focus on career paths in the university world, while the field of biology is far broader than herpetology or even organismal zoology. This article, then, gives professional colleagues a resource that may help them answer specific questions from their clients.

Second, many people do not consider a career in herpetology or zoology until they reach the stage where it has become obvious that their collections have outgrown their personal resources. They either wish to expand their contact with large reptiles in a zoological park setting or perhaps wish to engage in meaningful field or laboratory studies. Among the ranks of this group are many seasoned and competent herpetoculturists, and they form a significant group seeking information about how to “turn pro.”

Career Options I: The Private Sector

There are probably more paying opportunities in the private sector than can be found among the zoological parks and academic markets combined, though it may also be safe to say relatively few private sector jobs will pay a living wage. Among the jobs that can be classified as “private sector” are those that receive funding as commercial, for-profit ventures. Typical jobs would include animal dealers, pet shop workers, breeders, lecturers, and writers. For most of these positions, success will be based largely on experience and knowledge-from whatever source you obtained it-and less so on formal academic training. Some notable herpetologists came from the ranks of the privately employed sector, including Lawrence Klauber, Constantine Ionides, E. Ross Allen, Steve Irwin, and Hans-Georg Horn, as well as many of the most knowledgeable contemporary reptile breeders.

Working in the private sector generally has two paths available to you. First, you may work for someone who owns a reptile-related business. Pay is variable in such situations, and may be based more on the financial condition of the business than on any experience you may bring. Perhaps the more financially rewarding route is to operate a business of your own. Many commercial breeders start by specializing in a single species (such as leopard geckos) or a genus (such as rat/corn snakes). From there you may branch out to handle other species, or you may remain a specialist dealer and supply your personal passion for exotic reptiles with a private collection.

There are also herpetological supply businesses, school lecturers, and reptile food suppliers, among other possibilities. The key to making any of these ventures work is to tackle them as serious business activities. Take some business classes, or buy some good books about writing a business plan (essential for getting loans) and operating a small business. Take advantage of free advisory services of friends in business or the U.S. government’s SCORE program (Service Corps Of Retired Executives), where experienced business people will review business plans and loan requests, discuss accounting and inventory control, and be available to help in a myriad of ways that will make you life easier and business more likely to succeed.

Career Options II: Zoological Parks

It was once true that if you were willing to clean cages and apprentice under an “old timer,” you could get a position at even the most prestigious of zoos. By the last third of the 20th century, though, a variety of factors at zoological parks had changed drastically. Operating costs, including salaries and benefits, utilities, insurance, cost of animals, and greater competition for visitor’s dollars all made it essential to streamline the operations and assure better-trained staff from their date of hire. People wishing to work in the animal care departments were routinely expected to have completed a two-year associate’s degree in biology, animal husbandry, or zookeeper training. Now it is much more likely that a zoo will want new hires to possess a bachelor’s degree and have a few years’ experience as either a zoo volunteer or part-time worker. Moving into management may require you to have a master’s degree as well.

Why all this focus on academic qualifications? There are several reasons, and we’ll examine each in detail. First, of course, is that many employers see completion of a college degree as an indicator of your ability to take on a long term project, with all its ups and downs, and finish. An associate’s degree program at one of the few community colleges that offers such a course of study will consist of far more hands-on (or “practical”) time working in a small zoo that a student would get in a traditional university setting. The two-year course is vigorous, and potential zookeepers will be trained across the lines of the zoo world, being exposed to bird and large mammal care, administration and administrative duties associated with a broad spectrum of possible career positions. The more traditional and popular four-year university degree route may entail little practical zoo keeping experience, but provides a very broad range of classes that include English (good communication skills are expected of new hires), math, history, Western Civilization, philosophy, chemistry, physics, biology, and a variety of optional, or elective, courses. There is rather little focus on zoology during the four year program, so a candidate who can “tough it out” is seen as being a well-rounded individual with a solid background in sciences and who can complete a long-term project that appears to have little direct bearing on the final goal.

The second reason for wanting a strong college background in new zookeeper hires is because animals are becoming more expensive to acquire, maintain, and replace. Zoo managers rightly expect modern keepers to know considerably more about the anatomy, physiology, behavior, and diseases of the animals for which they will have responsibility. The keeper is the first line of action for keeping animals healthy and recognizing when something may be wrong, and the better trained the keeper, the better he or she should be at handling that responsibility. College teaches students how to do research, and the working zookeeper may have to use library, on-line, or professional contact sources to get information necessary to the well being of animals.

Breeding was once the rare and much-heralded accomplishment of few zoos, and then only for large, usually mammalian charges. The pre-1965 efforts were often on so-called “postage-stamp collections” of animals, where zoos would try to obtain one specimen each of as many species as possible. With the mid-1960s enforcement of the U.S. Lacey Act, establishment of the Endangered Species Act and the beginning of CITES, zoos were limited in their abilities to acquire new animals. It quickly became fashionable, responsible, and fiscally necessary to learn to breed more species and use progeny to populate zoo collections. During the pioneering days of captive husbandry, zookeepers with a greater knowledge of physiology, reproductive biology, and the natural history of the animals in their care had a decided advantage over other keepers. Such staff members became crucial to the continued success of many zoo missions, helping drive the recruitment of new employees with a more solid and diverse background in the science of biology.

Third, many zoos have come under increased scrutiny both by the general public, wanting to be sure that the zoo’s mission is actually being accomplished, and by groups who advocate against the keeping of any animals in captivity at all. Today’s zookeeper needs to know how to educate the public to the needs of animals and the important roles played by well-run zoological parks. An indispensable part of being such a zookeeper is to have a broad view of the mission coupled with exceptional speaking and/or writing skills. Every keeper is also an ambassador for their zoo and the value of all zoos to the visiting public. Employers often equate your ability to handle these tasks with the training you received in university.

Career Options III: Academia

The academic world has much to offer, but also makes considerable demands. Careers under this heading include primarily university positions-almost all of which have teaching responsibilities as well as research-and the small number of museum curators. For an entry into any of these fields a candidate must certainly hold a doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) degree, and most jobs now also require you to have held a postdoctoral position as well. There has been a fair amount of discussion since the middle 1990s to create a new post-Ph.D. degree, the chancellorate, but most critiques argue that by the time a student would attain that degree, they would be facing retirement age!

An academic herpetologist may have the greatest freedom to explore the topics of personal interest, especially in a museum setting, but even there the job will require expertise and skills that extend beyond studying reptiles. University and museum professionals enter the profession as assistant professors or assistant curators. They will be charged with setting up a research program that is funded by grants-which they must raise with limited institutional help. Earning a grant means having a solid research proposal, excellent writing and budgeting skills, and the resources that will guarantee the promised results if you are funded. Your employer will also expect a certain quantity of peer-reviewed publications (those that appear in the scientific or technical journals) from you. If, after three to seven years, depending on the employer, you meet these goals, you will probably be offered a promotion to associate professor or associate curator and tenure. Tenure means that, barring an extremely serious breach of responsibility, you have a job for life.

But it is not as easy as the previous paragraph describes to get tenure. You will also need to serve on committees, provide input on institutional projects, and establish some sort of interaction with the broader community. Each of these tasks is designed to give you the chance to be seen as an authority in your subject and prepare you for increased responsibilities in the future. Your success or failure will also weigh in on whether or not you earn tenure. On top of all this, university faculty are also expected to teach, which means that you will essentially be charged with two very distinct jobs.

College Preparation

College education is not for everyone, and with the increased competition for available entry slots in each year’s classes coupled with ever increasing tuition and related expenses, it should be a well-planned and carefully considered step (Sprackland, 1990). For those of you still in high school-or for parents whose children want to prepare for a career in herpetology-I shall offer some basic advice on how to prepare for college. The sooner you can start your efforts, the better, because you will need three solid years of the right kinds of high school courses in order to be seriously considered for admission to a good university. Opt for the college-prep route, and take three or more years of math (algebra, geometry, algebra II, and calculus), three of laboratory-based science (biology, chemistry, and physics), and work to excel in English, particularly composition. By the junior year of high school you should be researching colleges. Find out which schools offer degrees and courses of interest; not all schools offer zoology paths, and of those that do, not all offer courses in herpetology. Start reading one of the major scientific journals (Copeia, Herpetologica, and Journal of Herpetology) and study where the authors are who have interests that coincide with yours. Each scientific paper includes the author’s address and, almost universally, e-mail address.

When you find authors you wish to contact, do so. Write a brief polite letter introducing yourself and expressing interest in studying herpetology. Ask for information about the author’s university, its courses, degree offerings, and admission requirements. Plan early, because entry requirements vary somewhat among universities.

If you choose to go the community or junior college route, there are some differences in your procedure from what you would do to get into a four-year school. You do not need the same rigorous high school course load to enter a community college, and entry requirements vary from none to minor. There is little difference to the student between the first two years of college whether at community or four-year colleges, and in many cases the former is a better educational deal. Why? Because unlike four-year colleges, community colleges do not employ graduate students to teach. Faculty almost universally have at least a master’s degree plus several years’ experience as instructors, providing a considerable potential edge over the graduate student teacher.

Once enrolled at community college, you must meet two objectives if you wish to eventually earn a solid bachelor’s or higher degree. First, be sure to register in courses that will transfer credit to the four-year school you plan to attend. If this is not possible-some universities do not recognize some community college courses as adequate-then have an alternative university to aim for or go directly to the four-year school of your choice. Second, take every course as seriously as you can. Work to earn an A average, especially in science, math, and English composition courses. Don’t waste your time at community college, assuming it is the easy alternative to a four-year school; this is rarely the case. Many community college instructors are leaders in their respective fields. The late Albert Schwartz was a herpetologist who probably did more than any other zoologist to study and document the herpetofauna of the Caribbean islands, and he is still extremely highly regarded by his peer community. Yet for his entire career, Schwartz taught only at a community college. Several distinguished herpetologists are doing just that even today.

When enrolling at university should you sign up for the bachelor of arts or bachelor of science program? There is a small difference, though few students (or graduates) know what it is. In the bachelor of science (BS) track, you have almost all of your courses determined by a university-set plan. You are required to take specific classes and have very few elective options. The bachelor of arts (BA) is more liberal; it still has a considerable number of required courses, but you have far more latitude in elective class choices. Because my interests were so broad in my undergraduate days, wanting to study paleontology, Latin, and philosophy as well as zoology, I opted for the BA program. Had I taken a BS route, I could not have taken such a range of classes and still graduated in four years.

Graduate School and Post Graduate Options

Graduate school is definitely not for everyone, though it is absolutely essential if you wish to obtain an academic career or a position as a senior zoo employee. Collections managers and zoo keepers typically opt for a master’s degree, which provides advanced coursework and a chance to engage in some project or activity that has a direct bearing on the requirements of an advanced career path. A doctoral degree is a research degree, meaning the recipient has been trained to conduct original studies. This is the degree needed for professorial and curatorial positions. The vast majority of people who plan to earn a doctorate do not need to earn a master’s degree en route.

Master’s programs take from 18 months to three years of full-time effort, and include a large number of courses, some research or work as research assistant in a lab, and often require a written thesis based on library or research work. Some master’s programs will require you to either work as a research assistant or as a teaching assistant, supervising laboratory sessions. Doctoral programs in the United States start off similar to the master’s route, and with classes, lab or teaching duties. Upon completing a set of qualifying examinations, the student becomes a candidate for the degree and begins working on an original research project, which will eventually be written up as a thesis. If the thesis passes faculty scrutiny, the Ph.D. is awarded. U.S. doctoral programs typically span five to seven years of full-time effort, after which the herpetologically oriented graduate faces a daunting job market. If you want a Ph.D., go ahead and earn it, but do not assume it is a guarantee of an academic job. During the particularly tight job market of the 1980s and 1990s, my contemporaries joked that Ph.D. stood for “Pizza Hut Delivery.” (This seemed somewhat appropriate given that we survived graduate school by ordering astronomical numbers of Pizza Hut pizzas to our labs; now “the hut” could pay our salaries!)

If you decide to enter graduate school, begin your job hunt no later than a year before you plan to get a master’s degree, or two-and-a-half years before a Ph.D. Once again, read the journals, attend conferences, and find out where people are with whom you would be compatible as a new colleague. Whose research could complement yours and help you on the road to tenure? Make those contacts early and make sure you have people who will vouch for you when those precious jobs become available.

CAREER OPTIONS IV: MISCELLANEOUS

Perhaps none of the previous categories applies to your interests. That still leaves a considerable number of possible careers that will allow at least some work with reptiles. Most require a bachelor’s degree, though a job announcement will often claim “master’s degree preferred.” Among the choices are-

Government biologist-Positions with federal and state wildlife agencies sometimes allow study of herpetofauna. Among the obvious agencies are fish and wildlife, game, and environmental services. However, biological work is also undertaken by the U.S. Geological Survey, forest services, and occasionally in military research (the U.S. Army and Navy long operated a considerable snake venom research facility).

Teacher-Both primary and secondary school teachers have numerous opportunities to acquaint children with the natural world. In many states the teacher must hold a degree in a content area-say biology or zoology-while other states accept applicants whose degree is in education. Check carefully to determine the requirements for the state in which you wish to teach.

Community College Instructor-As tertiary schools have increased their dependency on lower-paid part-time instructors (who typically do not receive health or retirement benefits), the ranks of part timers has exploded. While the working conditions are extremely variable, part-timers can expect to have limited or no campus office space, no faculty standing, and perform the same teaching duties as full-time colleagues, but for 40% to 70% of the hourly pay rate. The rare full-time opening in this market is considerably more attractive, and carries no research, grant-seeking, or “publish-or-perish” responsibilities. Generally, the candidate must have a master’s degree in biology, teaching experience, and the ability to teach some combination of general biology, microbiology, and anatomy and physiology.

Writers-Natural history writing has its ups and downs, but many a herpetologist has earned at least some money from commercial publication. Choose a niche, such as writing about herpetoculture or more broadly about a specific group of animals, to get started. Financial success will ultimately depend on reliability, excellent writing skills, and the ability to expand to reach broader audiences. The more biological or scientific topics you can cover, the more your potential income. Although herpetology is my grand passion, I have also published on the topics of education, philosophy, sub-micron electronics, non-metal conductors, evolution, venom research, and history.

Photographer/illustrator-Just as a financially successful nature writer must reach a wide audience, so too must the photographer or illustrator. Few, if any, of these professionals make a living wage by only illustrating reptiles; there is more security in animals and general nature shots.

Veterinarian-A secure field if you do not plan to care only for reptiles. Like graduate school in general, there are serious academic hurdles to meet, and competition for openings (there are fewer vet schools than medical schools) is fierce.

It is optimal to purchase a used RV inside of the number one eighteen months or so, when you consider that you still get a “new” car, but at a a good deal greater selling price.

There are pretty much two means that men and women acquire put to use diesel pusher motor coaches, from a supplier or from a private seller. With any sale of a implemented RV you should really have it checked out by a mechanic who is competent in looking at RVs previously you signal a deal or compose a look at. With a seller you will have the benefit of staying ready to do the job with lenders who focus in loans for all kinds of put to use RVs together with put to use diesel pusher motor coaches. With a non-public vendor you will really need to operate with a bank or other financial institution to protected your personal funding which may perhaps be a little more tough.

Buying from a financial institution also helps you the benefit of obtaining with the option of an prolonged warranty. Personal sellers will not oftentimes will offer you this on second hand diesel pusher motor coaches except if they are capable to transfer a recent guarantee that is still in outcome.

When seeking at used diesel pusher motor coaches that you are believing about selecting, you should certainly make careful notes in advance of what capabilities are priorities for you. If your checklist of priorities in made use of diesel pusher motor coaches features low mileage, a entire dimensions bath, or an broad entertainment centre, seem at coaches that have individuals qualities. If they will not, and you are continue to interested, acquire out if you can insert people functionality your self. Right after all this is your dream RV and your lifestyle.

Astrology of the Chakras


It is effectively acknowledged to scores of of us by now that the “human power field” is comprised of 7 main strength facilities or chakras that are located along the cerebral-spinal axis. Each and every of these centers functions as a substation or transformer of the common electricity or prana that flows because of the medulla at the foundation of the skull. As the prana descends by using the 5 lessen chakras it is transformed or modified from it’s pure state. If the lesser chakras are distinct and cost-free of bad impressions (trauma, suppression, and many others.) then the prana is no charge to ascend back to the upper chakras leading to better states of consciousness.

If the reduce chakras are blocked, on the other hand, then the prana is blocked from ascending and these energetic blockages commence to manifest as “dis-simplicity” on psychological, emotional and bodily levels. In other phrases, if we have blockages in any of the chakras it means that we have damaged our “attune”-ment with universal existence power strength on a delicate, or not so subtle, degree. Seeing as the chakras are strength facilities that answer to vibration, a particular of the ideas that we can appear again into alignment or attunement is by means of the aware use of vibration, tunes and movement.

A single of the tools that can guidance us in this journey is an being familiar with, by the use of astrology, of the marriage somewhere between the chakras and the planets. In the astrological society just about every of the chakras is related with or is ruled by a several earth. On an energetic amount the astrological chart is a map of not only the inter-loving relationship of the planets but a map of the inter-connection and disorder of the chakras. In essence, we have our very own internal photo voltaic application that guides the evolution of our consciousness via the all sorts of chakra facilities. By recognizing the planetary excellent of every single chakra we can use certain sorts of audio, vibration and motion to awaken and open each and every chakra and energize ourselves.

Astrology of the Chakras

The very first chakra, found at the foundation of the backbone, is affiliated with the world Saturn. Astrologically, Saturn signifies our ability to floor ourselves so that we can materialize our goals. Not plenty of Saturn in our lives leaves us ungrounded and not able to service ourselves. For some, as well little Saturn helps make it hard to produce a feeling of effective boundaries and center. Also much Saturn, all the same, and we can hold on to the product plane as well much and resist improve as a result of of insecurity and fright. One particular of the means to mend the initially chakra is through connecting with the energies of the earth . Strolling barefoot, working on yoga and drumming are all possibilities of tuning into the reduce frequencies of the very first chakra. Drumming, in explicit, is an effectual way of opening and awakening the to start with chakra. When we drum we in most cases hold the drum among our legs which immediately connects with the first chakra at the foundation of the spine. By tuning into the lower frequencies of the drum we not only energize ourselves but also become even more current and in our bodies.

The 2nd chakra, governed by Jupiter, is found in the pelvic or genital location of the physique. The second chakra has to do with concerns of creativity and sexuality and how we channel our elementary living power power and thoughts. Astrologically, Jupiter is the planet that represents how we extend our consciousness. If we grew up in a household that suppressed feelings or sexuality then this would immediately influence the 2nd chakra and our feeling of expansiveness. If we suppress just one spot of the 2nd chakra, say sexuality, then all of the other regions: our enthusiasm, creativeness, expression of deep emotion, are impacted as well. When the second chakra is open up we are in touch with our primal life power, or kundalini electricity. This is the basic electromagnetic pressure that animates our bodies and when freely expressed generates magnetism, passion, and real creativity in our life.

The essential to awakening the vitality of the 2nd chakra, then, is to get our instinctual vigor transferring and open and grow the variety of pelvic motion. A particular of the prime options I’ve found to achieve this is through 100 % free type dancing or African dance types. Various ages in the past I experienced a guest African dancer in my Astrology of the Chakras course and she defined that most of the movements of African dance are truly meant to aid the opening of the quite a few chakras. Any movements that agreement and then expand the spot of the second chakra, or pelvis location, will enable to loosen up the vigor in that centre. Also, implementing ethnic or society tunes that activates the instinctual or heading middle, like as didgeridoo, belly dance or Turkish dervish audio, are terrific.

The 3rd chakra, positioned at the photo voltaic plexus or “hara” is the seat of our personal power. Mars, the earth associated with personal will and Pluto, the planet affiliated with collective will, are the co-rulers of the third chakra. The troubles of the third chakra have to do with power, command, trusting our gut degree instincts, and our perception of private empowerment. A blocked third chakra might manifest as a lack of becoming capable to make decisions, not simply being to rely on our individual instincts, and inner thoughts of to be manipulated or victimized. An overactive 3rd chakra may possibly manifest as handle complications, intimidation, rage, or violence. The significant to healing the 3rd chakra is to find out how to just take strength devoid of harming other individuals. It is also crucial to know how to permit go of the worry of staying out of deal with.

Tunes can be a significantly powerful medium for opening the 3rd chakra as it is a non-verbal variety of communication that by-passes the cognitive brain and directly impacts our deepest emotions. More and more women and men who feel they have to command their feelings come across themselves getting moved to tears by evocative new music. Uncovering music that moves you, whether or not emotionally or physically is a way of accessing the further feelings of anger, grief and rage that are commonly trapped in the third chakra. As these emotions are uncovered and authorized expression, the third chakra can then blossom and the strength that has been channeled into command can now be re-routed into a lot more fulfilling sorts of self expression and creative imagination.

Audio of the Heart

The fourth chakra, situated approximately the heart and lungs, is governed by the planet Venus. Venus represents what we value, what we are passionate about and our ability to share our really enjoy unconditionally. I also assign “greater” rulership of the fourth chakra to the planet Neptune, as it is Neptune that signifies the strategy of transcending our own individuality and merging with spirit or divine absolutely adore.
The fourth chakra is the bridge relating to the lower and greater chakras. It has been stated that our western culture mostly relates to the problems of the to start with three chakras financial resources, sexual intercourse and electrical power. As we apparent the psychological attachments of the earliest a few chakras then we can start out to open to the expansive features of the greater chakras. If the fourth chakra is blocked we will probably have fears of not getting loved, fears of providing and acquiring passion or relationships that are unfullfilling.

The critical to healing the heart chakra is through the advancement of compassion, devotion, and a perception of connection with people. Tunes, in the kind of devotional singing, can open up the heart and lower thoughts of separation. The Dances of Universal Peace from the Sufi tradition of Samuel Lewis are an good way of combining audio and motion to facilitate a perception of mystical link or oneness with other people. Combining sacred mantras from differing spiritual traditions with simple circle dances, the Dances of Universal Peace support us to allow go of the artificial partitions that always keep us individual. They are also a extraordinarily protected way of training how to give and acquire have a passion for unconditionally.

Opening the Throat, 3rd Eye &amp Crown Chakras

The fifth chakra, positioned in the throat location, is governed by Mercury, the earth representing all sorts of communication and Chiron, the planet symbolizing the mentor/teacher archetype. It is by using the fifth chakra that we grow exclusive expression and the potential to generate our private reality. If the fifth chakra is blocked then we might possibly have fears of asserting or speaking up for ourselves. It can also be very hard to convey our desires or the thoughts that we encounter emanating from the coronary heart chakra. A new familiar manifestation of a blocked fifth chakra is disbelief in our talent to formulate our life the way we want them to be. If we grew up possessing no voice in the alternatives that were being remaining crafted for us or developing our possibilities ridiculed then inevitably we eliminate believing in the energy of our absolutely free will or voice.

Therapeutic the fifth chakra is necessary if we want to open up to the intuitive awareness that arrives from the sixth and seventh chakras. If the fifth chakra is blocked we could quite possibly be overly psychological and not open to the subtle intuitive material that is always to be channeled by the larger facilities. In terms of healing modalities, singing is a person of the most popular solutions for opening the fifth chakra. Considering that scores of folks with fifth chakra blockages have pretty much “misplaced their voice”, the finest way to reclaim our voice is to vibrate it with sound! Chanting sacred mantras these kinds of as OM is also beneficial as OM is found as the fundamental, or primordial audio of the universe. As we chant OM we align ourselves with the imaginative sound that is imagined to bring all content kind into existence.

The sixth chakra, situated in the center of the forehead somewhere between the eyes, is co- dominated by the Sunlight and the Moon. The sixth chakra is related with our greater mental talents of introspection, self-evaluation, perception and intuition. Usually, the sixth chakra is seen as obtaining two poles. The moon pole, situated at the medulla, is exactly where receive the “breath of god” or common vigor. The sunshine or energetic pole, located at the third eye, is the place we convey this common strength by the auto of our very own individuality.A blocked sixth chakra will manifest as worry of looking inside of ourselves, fear of utilising our intuitive skills, refusal to understand from life’s experiences, or the incapability to obtain inner advice. Actual physical indications could encompass migraines, anxiety, depression and knowing disabilities. One of the most appropriate methods to open the sixth chakra is via meditation, visualization and accessing the imaginal realm as a result of dreamwork. This opening can be facilitated by new music that evokes the imagination and opens us to the realm of non-regular insights. Specially, there are a lot CD’s on hand that enable the brain to entry deeper states of alpha, delta and theta consciousness that are otherwise only made as a result of meditation procedures.

And finally, we achieve the seventh chakra, situated at the best rated or crown of the head. The crown chakra is seen as yet another level of entry of lifespan force electrical power and signifies our connection with universal consciousness. I affiliate the seventh chakra with the planet Uranus, as it is Uranus that signifies the universal existing of strength that nourishes head, system and spirit. From the Vedic point of view of India, Uranus represents the kundalini power that resides at the foundation of the spine in the to start with chakra. As we awaken and open up each and every of the chakras the kundalini energies rise up the spine and activate the seventh chakra best to enlightenment or illumination. A wide range of of us working experience this in orgasm as the kundalini moves thru the decreased chakras and activates the crown chakra. The valid reason we go to snooze soon after orgasm is that we are not second hand to channeling that substantially vigor in the greater facilities so we conclude up shutting down, or heading unconscious.

If we have blockages in the seventh chakra this may very well manifest as affordable living force strength, disbelief that we can be supported by the universe, or sensation disconnected from a sensation of meaning or course in our lives. The interesting factor about the seventh chakra is that it is the polar opposite of the very first chakra so we can open it from “previously mentioned” or “down below”. Pranayama or respiratory methods enable to open up the seventh by expanding our potential to channel electricity by way of the finest of the head. As we extend our capability to channel electricity we can withstand a little more aliveness shifting thru our bodies without the need for resistance.

As we open the reduced chakras by using movement and sound we decrease the resistance we have to getting far more alive and release the kundalini strength that is dormant at the base of the backbone. In other words, opening the larger chakras does not indicate that we demand to overlook or “transcend” the reduce chakras as some traditions would have us assume. Alternatively, it necessitates that we succeed on opening up the total chakric discipline so that we have the capacity to experience better states of consciousness in a grounded or embodied way.

This just isn’t continually so not difficult to do simply because the optimal resources of DHA and EPA omega 3’s are fish oils. And most fish that the fish oils are generated from are better than EPA than DHA.

Immediately after exploring the advertise, I noticed some made from Hoki, a deep drinking water New Zealand fish species. This nutritional supplement provides 260mg of DHA in every last gentle gel and sixty mg of EPA. So the DHA ratio is substantially greater than EPA.

But is it the really exceptional DHA EPA ratio? Of study course, I won’t be able to say that.
