The Buffalo Calf Women
By Tim McGovern
o some she is considered a ghost. To others she comes from the power that created life. To the Lakota tribe, she is a phenomenon and a prophet. The White Buffalo Calf Woman is a legend that began around 10 B.C. The tradition goes that during a time of famine, the Chief of the Lakota’s sent out two warriors to hunt for food. As they travelled, they saw what looked like a white buffalo calf. However as they got closer, she seemed to be transformed into a beautiful young woman in white clothing. One of the men lusted after her and told his friend that he would take her for his wife if he saw that she was pleasing. His friend urged him not to, as she appeared to be a sacred woman and to do so would be a folly and sacrilegious. The warrior scout ignored the warning and approached the woman. As the scout filled with desire approached the woman, they were both engulfed in a white 4
cloud. When the cloud disappeared, only the woman was found standing, with a pile of bones at her feet. The other warrior was terrified and drew his bow. The woman signaled to him to come forward. She pointed to the bones and said that she had to annihilate the man who was compelled by the Crazy Buffalo. However, if he did as she instructed, no harm would come to him or his tribe, and they would become very prosperous. He was told to return to his tribe and tell them to prepare for her arrival in four days. As promised, the woman arrived on the fourth day. A white cloud descended, and off stepped a white buffalo calf that rolled on the ground four times, changing colors from white, to black, then yellow, then red. When she rose up, she was once again the beautiful young woman in white clothing. Her name was PtesanWi, which translated is White Buffalo Calf Woman. In her hands was the sacred bundle, which is also known as the chanunpa, or sacred pipe. TheChanunpa is the holiest of all symbols today and is guarded today by the keeper of the White Buffalo Calf Pipe, whose name is Arvol Looking Horse. It is kept in a sacred place on the Cheyenne Indian reservation in South Dakota. During her four days with the Lakota’s, the White Buffalo Calf woman taught the Lakota’s seven sacred rituals besides giving them the sacred bundle. She also gave them other gifts. One of her gifts was her suggestion that all children be taught to hold baby animals with love and caring, so that they would learn to love all babies of the world. She also instructed them to be responsible caretakers of the land and
always be mindful that the children are our future. Later, it is said that she visited a young warrior who was troubled for a good future for children, one without war and divisiveness. She advised him to “seek the vision of a mother’s heart for the love of her children.” Her message is always around love, harmony, and children as our future.
The seven sacred rituals that she taught were:
1. The sweat lodge, or the purification ceremony. 2. The naming ceremony, child naming. 3. The healing ceremony. 4. The making of relatives or the adoption ceremony. 5. The marriage ceremony. 6. The vision quest. 7. And the Sundance ceremony, the people's ceremony for the entire nation.
She instructed that as long as the tribe honored these sacred rituals and were responsible caretakers of the land, the Lakota people would never die and always be prosperous. However, that wasn’t all. She promised to return. At the time when a white buffalo calf was born, this would symbolize the new age coming of peace and understanding. When she left, a white buffalo calf accompanied her, and again it rolled around in the dust four times, changing colors once for each race. . . first white, then yellow, then red, then black, signifying that we are all members of the same family. In 1994, a white buffalo calf was born on a farm in Wisconsin, the first white buffalo born in decades. Some believe that it was the fulfillment of the prophecy that she had returned and she was the white buffalo calf. Since then, many animals have seen a spike in albino births, all around the world. Is this new age something that we all have been experiencing and seen? Is this another manifestation of the new world order, one of humanity and peace? Her prophecy of this white animal is that she would come to purify the world. That means that she would bring back harmony, peace, balance, and spirituality. White buffalo are extremely rare; the National Bison Association has estimated that they only occur in approximately one out of every 10 million births. Is this another confirmation of all the SIGNS we have been seeing?
An Introduction to the White Light and Unfolding Enlightenment Unfolding Enlightenment heralds ground-breaking new concepts in healing. This innovative new and exciting approach involves looking at the entirety of a person energetically at a depth previously unknown. This all-encompassing approach is accomplished through a unique step by step process of deep healing at soul level that allows you to return to your true state of being. The process has been given to us and humanity at this time by the White Brotherhood to enable the healing, development and progression of mankind. It is about showing the way forward for mankind, illuminating the path to enable humanity to release all the dark negativity which has reduced them to third dimensional frequency and held them captive there for eons of time. The deep healing involved in the process is achieved through the use of The White Light, The Rose Cottage Flower/Vibrational Essences [which have been produced in conjunction with The White Brotherhood] and the Angelic Healing teams of the White Brotherhood with whom we work. Each of these is integral to each step of the process and as such is interdependent. The three components together enable practitioners to recognize and address the soul loss and deep damage at soul level accumulated over many lifetimes which has not been recognized by any other therapy until now and which though unseen, is nevertheless present for everyone, regardless of the path they have taken so far Unfolding Enlightenment is the only therapy which can do healing at this deep level at this time. Without healing at this level any other healing process is like putting water into a colander it leaks away and is not effective in the long term. Unfolding Enlightenment is a path of deep healing for everyone it is a spiritual journey to expanded consciousness and deeper levels of awareness or a path of healing, learning and development for anyone wishing to become a therapist. The steps of the process are described here in the order in which we learned and experienced them. It is therefore numbered to give some coherence to it. However, it is important to note that while White Light Attunements are an obligatory step for those wishing to be therapists or those wishing to progress on the spiritual path they will not be the first step for those requiring healing. Experience has in fact shown that some steps of the process are intermingled with others when part of a treatment plan. As clients many people have the healing of the process without wishing to be attuned to the White Light, whilst others become interested in the process through their own experiences and do become attuned. We are also very excited and privileged to be able to include Channelings from the Archangel Michael with whom we now work with on this website. He has been working with Sue with this idea in mind for some months prior to the creation of this new site

By Leon Titus
hen a paranormal investigator goes out on a ghost hunt, they already know that a lot of the evidence they collect might not be from a ghost. 7
Whether they hear footsteps going up a stairway, a moan coming from the other side of the room, or even see an apparition floating down a spooky old hallway, it could all be left over energy and not a ghost at all. This is called, a residual
haunting. It is like an energy imprint that gets left on the atmosphere in a certain area over time. Residual hauntings are very common. Yet, although they are common, they can’t just happen anywhere or at any time. So what causes this to happen, and how long does it last? Most ghost hunters agree that this happens from something repetitious that has happened in the past or something powerful and sudden. Here’s an example of how a residual haunting could happen. Let’s say that a family lives in a house for fifty years. Every night around 11pm the father comes home from work, opens the door, walks up the stairs and goes into his bedroom. Over time this may wear a grove in the atmosphere of the house, and almost like a negative of a picture, leaves an imprint. If a new family moves into that house; at night around 11 o’clock they may hear the sound of the door opening, even if it’s not, or perhaps the father walking up the stairs or down the hall. The father’s ghost may not be there, but the sound imprint might be. It’s not always easy to know if a haunting is real-time or left over energy. A lot depends on the evidence and the personal experiences around the haunting. As a general rule, if you get a response or interaction from a spirit, then you can be assured that it’s real time. 8
However, it’s not so easy to know if a haunting is residual. The one thing that some Paranormal Investigators fail to realize is, ghosts often times can’t see or hear us any better than we can see or hear them. Therefore they might float right on by in front of your face as if they are ignoring you or simply don’t see you. Just like people that live in a haunted house often time don’t even know it’s haunted, perhaps the ghost doesn’t even know you exist.
A while back I had to explain to someone that often time’s ghosts don’t even see each other. If you have a spirit of someone that died in a house 70 years ago still lingering around, they may not even see another ghost that stayed behind only 30 years ago. Realms, the type of energy from any given death, and most certainly, mindsets could make the difference of whether one ghost sees another. I see no reason why a ghost couldn’t see or hear a residual haunting just as we do. It doesn’t always have to be something that happens over a long period of time that causes a residual haunting. Often times this can happen by something traumatic and sudden. A gun-shot, a rape, or someone being killed could imprint on an atmosphere. Look at it like this. Anything in our life that is continual or powerful can wear a grove or make an imprint. We see the effects of water; whether it be a sudden flood or a steady flow that carves out a canyon as an example. Whether steady or sudden, energy can leave an imprint. However, the conditions also must be right in order for a residual haunting to happen. Ley lines in the earth, the moon and stars, and even the weather conditions could affect the chances of a residual haunting. Fortunately for ghosts’ hunters, whether the sounds they hear are residual or real time, it can still be recorded on their digital recorder. However, although sound can be imprinted on the atmosphere, we 9
see no evidence that things like doors and drawers are able to be moved as a result of left over energy. Yet, visible things can leave an imprint. We find that when it comes to apparitions being seen, the only way to really know if it’s left over energy is by observation. Of course, if the ghost interacts with you, it’s real time. Yet as I said earlier, they may not see you or even realize you’re there. The only real way to know if an apparition is a residual haunting, other than interaction, is to study the situation. If it happens the same time each day or week, then that could be a pretty good indication of a residual haunt. Unless you’re a seasoned Paranormal Investigator, it’s easy to mistake a residual haunt for a real time haunt. Knowledge is the key and makes the difference. Lots of people may think they live in a haunted house, when perhaps it’s simply left over energy from past happenings. If you feel as though you live in a haunted location, do your homework. It’s usually not something you will figure out overnight. It may even take a couple months or so before you’ll know for sure if what you’re experiencing is simply left over energy from something that happened in the past, or if the sounds you’re hearing are from a real live ghost.
Interpreting Dreams and Dream Symbols It was Jung, a Swiss psychiatrist and contemporary of Edgar Cayce's, who found convincing evidence for a deep level to the unconscious mind. This profound depth, Jung felt, came from a genuine spiritual reality that hadn't been acknowledged by Freud. Jung called this level the "collective unconscious." Here all minds could communicate through the use of universal symbolsâ€”images which seem to have a common meaning among people all over the world. For example, a symbol such as a lion or a great cat has a universal or archetypal meaning of power and vitality. Birds frequently symbolize various kinds of love or concern; water is often suggestive of the Spirit itself. An old woman or an old man or a grandfatherly figure can symbolize our own "Higher Self' or our own internal wisdom. Myths or fairy tales often have similarities among cultures, and these similarities are shown through their universal symbols and themes. Sometimes our own dreams may contain these kinds of symbols. Of course, not all the symbols and images in our dreams represent the universal or archetypal. Many, if not most, are best interpreted by discovering the personal associations one has with that person or object. The dream symbol of a rifle, for example, would likely mean one thing to a gunsmith and something quite different to a victim of war.
There is really no such thing as a 'bad" dream, because all dreams have the potential of helping the dreamer. Dreams of disastrous events may simply be advice to us to change our diets or our attitudes, or they may be emotional releases from various situations in our lives. They can become invaluable tools for instruction and guidance if we would only begin to work with them. For example, one person who dreamed of a headless man in uniform was told in his Cayce reading that instead of losing his head over his duties by following the letter of the law and getting too caught up in his job, there was a greater lesson to be learned by following the Spirit. A person who dreamed of a wild man running through the streets, shouting, and causing a great deal of trouble was told that the dream was advice for him to control his temper. One woman dreamed that a friend of hers was speaking to her. She noticed that the woman had beautiful false teeth of different shapes but every other tooth had the appearance of pure gold. She was told that the gold teeth represented the spiritual truths of which she herself was often speaking, but they were false because she hadn't applied in her own life what she had been preaching. Another woman dreamed that her mother, who had died, was alive and happy. Cayce assured her that she was not trying to fool herself, that her mother was indeed alive and happy: "... for there
is no death, only the transition from the physical to the spiritual plane." (136-33) In trying to arrive at a dreamâ€™s meaning, one possibility to consider is that the dream is largely literal. For example, seeing ourselves eat a salad in a dream may indicate the need for change in our diets to incorporate more salads. We may dream of someone we have not seen or heard from in a very long while, and then meet that person a short time later. In other cases, the action may be more symbolic of what is happening in waking life. Dreaming about different rooms which we haven't yet explored could be pointing to the unopened doors of our own personality. A car often symbolizes our physical body and the need to make a change or correct a physical condition. On the other hand, dreams of birth and death are often more symbolic, as they point to new beginnings and perhaps the end of doing something the old way. In other words a dream "death" is often the death of a part of our personality. For example, a woman who dreams of attending the funeral of her minister's wife may be allowing the spiritual aspects
of her own life to be overlooked or "laid to rest." Dreams of being pregnant or taking care of a small child who doesn't exist in the waking state isn't necessarily a prediction. The dream could merely be pointing out a new condition which will be coming our way or a new idea to which we will soon give birth. When dreams give guidance or seem to pass judgments, it is usually in response to values and ideals we have previously set for ourselves. Most dreams can be seen as a kind of comparison (Cayce used the word "correlation"). While we sleep, a comparison is made between recent actions and the inner values we hold. For example, one woman was advised for health reasons to avoid eating chocolate, and yet she continued to eat it anyway. She had a dream in which she was crossing the border into Mexico illegally for the purpose of buying chocolate. Obviously, she would be the best one to determine that her dream was simply pointing out she was doing something she had been told not to do; at one level, she knew it was "illegal."
September 2014 World War III?
any people say that World War III is inevitable. It has not already happened; but it could be leading up to that soon. While many are seeing the civil war in Syria build up to something that could affect other regions, and eventually the world, nothing seems to be changing the course that we are going down. While Obama wants to lessen the involvement in the Middle East and pull out, it seems that he cannot help displaying compassion for the rebels that are denied human rights. Leading nations like Great Britain, France and the United States are lining up in sympathy with the rebels, and on the other side, President Assad is being backed by Russia — a long-time friend of Syria — and by China. While we can plainly see who would be the players in all of this, this article is not a political article. This is about predictions that were made long before our times about World War III. This is about paying attention to the signs that have been 12
given to us, to make the necessary changes that we as a human race need to make. Let me start out by saying I do not believe that the future is set in stone. It is constantly changing and at any given moment, can totally change course, if we allow it to happen. This could even happen at the very last minute, and the future could totally go in a different direction. As far as signs from the universe go, I do believe that certain messages will continue to repeat themselves to us until we “get it” and learn from it so we can progress forward. Have you ever seen a particular pattern or number, over and over and over? Or maybe had the same dream several times in a row? That means there is a message there that you haven’t figured out. The universe is trying to get you to pay attention to something, or some particular message. Likewise, it is very possible this can happen on a global scale. We too can repeat history, as a human race,
until we learn to progress forward as “humanity as a whole.” Until we learn from our mistakes and PROGRESS, we will also continue to repeat history over and over. In 2009, I experienced my own spiritual awakening. It was then that many spiritual gifts were made manifest for me. I began to see patterns in almost everything, and started picking up on the subtle messages of the universe, and trusting my own intuition. I began to study Astrology in depth, and other spiritual things. In studying Astrology I came across an unusual fact that many people did not know about. In 2009, all of the planets in the sky were exactly the same alignment, to the degree, as the planets in the sky in the year of 1930. Why would this fact be unusually important? 1930 is the year when the Great Depression began; and 2009 is when our economy took a dive for the worst. As a matter of fact, if you are able to take the trending of the stock market in 1930 and compare it to 2009, you will undoubtedly see some startling similarities. We are covering an important time in our history where we are in fact on some level repeating history. As an example, in 1930, Herbert Hoover was president who had a birthday of August 10th (Leo). Our president at that time became Barrack Obama whose birthday is August 4th, also a Leo. They both had the theme of "Change" in their campaigns. They also had other similarities, from early life, to weaknesses, to the way they would surprise the masses on how well they were able to dive into a struggling situation and try to make the best of it. The Great Depression largely resulted from unethical behaviors in the Stock Market. It is why the Securities Exchange Act of 1933 was enacted to establish many rules and regulations with 13
steep penalties and punishments, to prevent this type of scenario from happening again. In 2008 the SAFE Act (Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act), we would see a similar situation, however the SAFE act was not implemented fully until 2011-2012. There was also the Housing Bill that became law in 2012. These laws that were recently enacted (just like the Securities Exchange Act of 1933) were to prevent unethical behavior from happening but this time, in the housing market, instead of the stock market. Not only did the alignments of the planets in 2009 mirror the exact alignment of 1930, the same was true for 2010 and 1931, 2011 and 1932, and so on and so on we continue…. So this year would be 1934, and next year (2014) would be the year 1935. So what does this mean for our future? Pivotal events happened in 1935 that directly led to World War II. In October, Italy invaded Ethiopia (also known as Abyssinia) . While it is common to say the World War II began in 1939, and the U.S.A was not actively involved until 1941, many events that begun in 1934, and especially in 1935 led directly to the events of World War II. It is my belief that it is very possible that World War III might begin next year in September-October. Let's look at a few other reasons why. One of the common predictions about the end of the world comes from the Cross of Hendaye, which was translated by Fulcanelli.
Que les entrez sortiront de leur tombe. The year of the great seventh number accomplished, It will appear at the time of the games of slaughter (Hecatombe): Not far from the great millennial age, When the buried will go out from their tombs. http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:He ndaye_Croix_cyclique.JPG The Latin inscription of the cross of Hendaye reads like this: OCRUXAVES PESUNICA One person (who only goes by the name of Syphon) translated this to read: “When hundreds die at the Hecatomb And the dead overcome their graves (death) This is the sign and symbol to all That the Autumn (hour) draws near (When all will) perish and be destroyed.” “Hecatomb” is a Greek word used to describe a sacrifice to the gods which usually involved a slaughter of cattle. What is interesting about this interpretation of the Latin inscription on the Hendaye Cross is how close this wording is to one of Nostradamus' famous quatrains...quatrain 10/74.
Now we have two separate prophecies, both from the southern France region, both written within fifty to a hundred years of each other and both making very similar predictions. Hendaye Cross: When hundreds die at the Hecatomb And the dead overcome their graves (death) This is the sign and symbol to all That the Autumn (hour) draws near (When all will) perish and be destroyed. Nostradamus: The year of the great seventh number accomplished, It will appear at the time of the games of slaughter (Hecatombe): Not far from the great millennial age, When the buried will go out from their tombs.
10 74 Au reuolu du grand nombre septiesme, Apparoistra au temps ieux d'Hecatombe, (He/or She will appear at the time of the games of the hecatomb) Non esloigné du grand eage milliesme, 14
These should be too close for someone to ignore. What is this great 7th year that Nostradamus talks about? Could it be in fact the year of 2014 since 2+0+1+4=7? Maybe this could correlate to the fact that we have reached 7 billion people in the Earth's population. He also says it is not far from the Millennial Age, which we have just crossed over into recently. The games of slaughter have commonly been referred to as the Olympics. It was because this reason, that many believed that 100,000 people would die at the Olympics in 2012 in London. Several doomsday followers were set that 2012 would be the year of the end of the world. Truth is, no one knows when the end of the world will be, and I don’t believe it will be even in this millennium if I am to be honest. I believe these predictions point to something else. If we are focusing on an event that will happen at the games of slaughter (the Olympics) the next Olympics will be in 2014 in Sochi, Russia. This is near the Black Sea. Nostradamus mentioned the Black Sea several times in his predictions about World War III. Right now, the Russian Federation is building a stadium and park specifically for the winter Olympics of 2014. The Sochi Olympic Park will be built along the Black Sea coast in the Imeretinskaya Valley. So again, we see the year of 2014, along with more ties to the Black Sea that was mentioned by Nostradamus. I am not saying that something bad will happen at these Olypmics, however, if it does, then we are definitely heading on the course that was predicted.
In regards to the prophecy of the Cross of Hendaye, the first day of Autumn next year is September 23, 2014. Therefore is why I estimated that on or around this date, something impactful will happen that will directly tie to the World War III. This also correlates to the Astrological repeat of history, of when war was declared October 5th, 1935 by Italy. The truth is that too many people are focused on the End of the World theory. What many people need to realize, is that where there is an end, there is usually a beginning. Where there is death, there is rebirth. Even the Hopi Indians predicted there would be a new world; the fourth world would pass away, to receive the fifth. Many people associate this to ascending to the 5th dimension, which is taking on a higher level of consciousness and spiritual enlightenment. This knowledge is purely informational. This is not to strike fear into the hearts of anyone. Nor is it to get people to focus on this, because in doing so, it could then manifest if people are consciously or even subconsciously manifesting for it. I for one do not want a World War, nor do I see any benefit for the human race in doing so. The good thing about getting a glimpse of the future is that if we don’t like it, we can change it. I said at the beginning of the article, that the future is not set in stone. If we all pull together and manifest a different future, then I along with several other past psychics will be wrong about the date of World War III…. And this would be a good thing. By Tim McGovern
men — machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don't hate! Only the unloved hate — the unloved and the unnatural!
http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/File:Dictator_ch arlie2.jpg To those who can hear me, I say — do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed — the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people and so long as men die, liberty will never perish. Soldiers! Don't give yourselves to brutes — men who despise you — enslave you — who regiment your lives — tell you what to do — what to think or what to feel! Who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don't give yourselves to these unnatural 16
Soldiers! Don't fight for slavery! Fight for liberty! In the 17th Chapter of St. Luke it is written: "the Kingdom of God is within man" — not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people have the power — the power to create machines. The power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then, in the name of democracy, let us use that power! Let us all unite! Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work that will give youth the future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power, but they lie! They do not fulfill their promise; they never will. Dictators free themselves, but they enslave the people! Now, let us fight to fulfill that promise! Let us fight to free the world, to do away with national barriers, to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men's happiness. Soldiers! In the name of democracy, let us all unite!

The Right by Leon Titus
iming is something that most of us give little thought to. Although the Bible explains the importance of good timing, many of us just let things happen when it happens or get what we want when we want it. However, the importance of right timing should be noted and even studied. Why is good timing so important and how can good timing improve and enhance your life? As a musician, I know firsthand the importance of good timing. When another musician’s timing is off, it messes up an entire song. I've worked with drummers that had less than perfect timing. Some speed up in the middle of a song, and others slow down. Good timing in a song is just as important as being in-tune. Believe it or not, good timing is an art in itself. The scriptures tell us that there is a time to sow and a time to reap. Sowing in the wrong season could be detrimental to your finances. The scriptures also tell us the importance of speaking at the right time and remaining silent when need be. Saying yes too quickly could easily get you into a situation that you can’t get yourself out of. In fact, the Bible gives us a nice little list and good examples of the importance of good timing. It took me years to learn about good timing. I use to buy things too quickly, usually a day before they came on sale. I also had a habit of saying things at the wrong time, or not saying what I should say at the right time. However, once I woke up and started realizing the importance of good timing, my life improved by 100%. 19
If you go to work on a Monday morning determined to ask your boss for a raise, yet find that your boss is in a bad mood, you may want to wait. Let's say you're getting ready to take a 500 mile trip in your car and a couple of your tires are in rough shape. You have the money to replace them but are short on time. The time may be now to replace them instead of having a couple flat tires 200 miles down the road. That could totally mess up your day and trip and cost you more time than if you would have put them on your car before you left for your trip. What if you and your mate have little or no life insurance? Waiting to purchase life-insurance after one of you have passed away probably won't work. It's great when we get a heads up about a thing before it happens so we can prepare, but often times that’s not the case. If your timing is off in our car, it will not run smoothly, and just like the timing in an engine, one thing needs to coincide with another in order for our own life to run smoothly. I suppose fishing would be one of live’s best timing and patience teachers. Sometimes you simply have to wait for something to happen, yet you have to prepare and make an effort first. If you jerk the pole too early, you miss the fish, and if you jerk the pole too late you may have missed out on the biggest fish you would have ever caught.
When Hollywood releases a movie, the timing has to be right or a great movie may not rate very high and go unseen. Releasing a Christmas show in August may be less than wise. No one would keep a clock around that runs a minute slow every day, and no one likes it when someone shows up too early or too late. TIMING before, TIMING now, and TIMING later. They are all important. Spiritually speaking; years ago I learned to trust, follow and flow. Trust God, follow the signs/Holy Spirit/, and try not to push or pull a situation or issue. Simply do my part and let things flow. I had to learn that my timing and Gods timing may be different. What may seem like perfect timing to me may actually be wrong thinking on my part. Being in sync is of the utmost importance to the Military. In the Military, if your timing is off even a little, it could cost lives and even start wars. Having an alcoholic beverage at the wrong time could cost you your job, or not taking your meds when itâ€™s time could cause you to be sick or confused. Mow when the sun shines, not when it's raining. Stopping for a Stop sign three seconds to late could cost you your life. As you can see by some of the examples I have presented, correct timing should be noted and practiced. By doing so, your life will improve. Whether it's paying your bills on-time, running to the Tornado shelter before itâ€™s too late, or telling your wife Happy Birthday two days after her Birthday has passed, good timing is one of the most important things you could practice. Don't be one of those people that are always a day late and a dollar short, or one of those people with no patience that buys too early and has to have everything now. Saying you're sorry after someone is already gone will not make things better. So be alert and pay more attention to the right timing. It will improve and change your life. 20

have, and in more than just one place. Throughout my life, this has happened to me several times in different places that I have either lived in, or stayed at. I guess I could try to come up with a plethora of reasons why this happened, but truthfully, I think it was ghosts. I guess in some cases it could have been traffic or a train outside, but certainly not every time. I don’t get scared easily. I was raised in a haunted place, and I am familiar with what spooks are capable of. I have felt feelings of cold run over my body, and the hair stand up on my arms. So when I would feel my bed shake, I would either say a prayer or ask them to stop. Believe it or not, this always worked. Although I can’t be certain, I think the ghosts were simply trying to get my attention. I never felt endangered or threatened. Perhaps they were simply playing around, or maybe just saying hello. In my opinion, I believe that when ghosts do this, most of the time they want your help in moving on from one realm to another, but I can’t be sure that this is always the case. It must be depressing to find yourself dead, stuck in one place, plus no one even knows your right there with them. I am sure they try to get our attention during the day, too. However, because we are so busy doing this or that, they probably 21
easier to shake a bed to get someone’s attention than to wave my hand in front of them while they’re awake. Even if by chance they saw me, they may think they simply have something in their eye or their glasses are dirty. If this has or does happen to you, don’t be afraid. Most ghosts are friendly. Who knows -- maybe you can help them move on to a higher place? Either way, the whole bed shaking thing is very common and happens to a lot of people. So you don’t need to feel alone the next time your bed shakes in the middle of the night, BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT.

Sex Dreams ex dreams can be the most uncomfortable dream to talk about. Most of the time, they aren't who you would expect them to be with, and they can leave us sometimes gagging, or feeling extremely uncomfortable and questioning, â€?Why did I dream that?â€? However, these can hold some very important messages. I decided to write about this, since many people will never confess to having a sex dream if they feel uncomfortable about it. In doing so, they may miss the true message behind the dream. Sex dreams usually have to do with our most intimate feelings, our vulnerability, and our inner secret desires, and therefore, the message could be very important. Most sex dreams do not mean that act will happen; in most cases these dreams are mostly metaphoric, and our subconscious will sometimes use "shock value" to get our attention. After all, I am pretty sure our subconscious knows how to get our attention.
The first thing to do after having one of these dreams (after you get over the shock factor) is to think about the person involved. If it is someone unknown, what qualities or traits did you notice, or feel, if any? When it is a 23
stranger, it could simply relate to obtaining balance between your feminine and masculine side. Depending on what you notice about the person, could emphasize a particular trait that you need to gain balance in. Everyone has a feminine and masculine side. If it is a person that you do know, what does that person mean to you? A boss could point to your career, or moving up the corporate ladder. A relative could mean you need to focus on that relationship. Even homosexual sex (if you are not homosexual) could point to focusing on traits of yourself, or your masculine (if you are male), or feminine (if you are female) side. Let's face it, sex dreams are not always with that hot model or star we daydream about. Since sex dreams have to do with our own intimate desires, what is it about that person that you fancy, or that you would like to incorporate in your own life? Dreaming of sleeping with a
friend's husband could make you feel guilty even though you did nothing wrong, but perhaps there is something about him that you wish you could find in a mate, or husband. REMEMBER, it doesn't always mean anything sexual, but these people that you would normally shudder at the thought of having sex with, may indeed have some quality or characteristic that you would wish to incorporate in your life. Although it is more common than you think, dreaming of having relations with a family member is one of the worst dreams to shrug off. This shock value could be pointing to this relationship for a reason. If a relationship is strained, maybe you should practice forgiveness; secretly you may want them back in your life. This may not apply if in fact you were a victim of incestuous sex, and you may need to seek some professional help. However, if you have never been a victim of such a horrible thing, then it probably means the former. Rape is another situation that doesn't always mean rape. If you were not a victim of this type of horrible crime, it may be that you need to address the feeling that you are being invaded, or violated in some way.
Another big scare is dreaming of your own partner or spouse having sex with someone else. It is common to automatically race to the thought that it is actually happening. In these emotionally charged situations, the best thing to do is to calm down and realize it is a dream, not necessarily what is happening in real life. So before you go off and start making accusations, take a look at yourself. These dreams always have to do with one theme, "insecurity." This could simply point to issues and insecurities that are happening in real life. It is probably time to sit down with your other half and have a conversation about it. Far and few in between, if we actually do dream of sleeping with that famous star, whether it is Channing Tatum, or Eva Mendes... I hate to burst your bubble, but it may just have to do with you wanting to increase your social standing, fortune or fame in your own life. At least next time, you won't feel so awkward about it if you dream of sex.

eâ€™ve all heard of Shadow people. They are the dark figures that we see at night and even sometimes during
the day in our homes. Who are these people and where did they come from? Well, although some may be explained away as some form of a ghost,
others are still a mystery. There are several types of Shadow People. There are those that are short, dark, and with big glowing eyes. These are thought to be evil, and perhaps, some kind of Demon. There are the ones that are more of a mist and are accepted as more a being from some kind of a realm collide. When realms collide, we

Chakras The Bodies Vital Energy Centres By Kelly Peacey 'Chakra' is fast becoming a recognized term amongst most people. So what is a chakra well firstly â€˜Chakraâ€™ is a Sanskrit word translating as wheel or vortex and this gives us an indication as to how they appear and function. Many clairvoyants report seeing them as spinning vortices of energy, and they are thought to transduce the Universal Life Force/Prana/Chi that exists in the whole of the Universe and feed it into the body feeding specific organs, body systems, endocrine glands and nerve plexusâ€™s. They also relate to psychological and spiritual states of consciousness development. The ancient Tantric tradition located 7 major chakras or energy points running from our head to the base of our spine, although they also listed many more all over the body some believing in excess of 300! The chakras are formed at the junction of three connected energy shafts that ascend the spine, one on each side of the central channel, the Shushumna. The two lesser channels of energy are; the Pingala on the right and Ida on the left running parallel to the spine. The Kundalini energy many yogis report that helps them attain enlightenment rises up through the 7 major chakras from 28
the base of the spine to the crown, giving them ecstatic moments of supreme bliss,
understandings of how the Universe functions, and feelings of interconnectedness beyond normal comprehension. Each major chakra has a colour, tone, fragrance, planet, crystal and angel associated with it, all of which are thought to bring it back into harmony. If one or more of the chakras is perceived to be malfunctioning in that it may be spinning too
fast or too small, may be distorted or worse still; blocked, it affects the flow of energy that the body requires for optimal health. The cause may be through emotional issues such as stress, anxiety, anger, geopathic stress, electromagnetic stress, unhealthy lifestyle, detrimental beliefs and thought patterns amongst many more possible affecters, this then can potentially manifest as physical, emotional, mental and spiritual problems.
So where are they and what do they relate to? Root Chakra (Base Chakra) - Muladhara, means “root” and “support.” This chakra resonates perfectly with Red and is found at the base of the spine. Psychologically it has links to security, safety, sense of connection to family and material possessions. It is the chakra of vitality and helps to maintain a feeling of groundedness, hence the term root. Organs associated with the root chakra include muscles, bones, hip joints, spine, blood, and immune system. The verb associated with the first chakra is “I am.” Sacral Chakra - Svadhisthana, which means “sweetness.” The sacral chakra located below the belly button and above the pelvic region represents ones sexuality, creativity, finances, personal power, relationships, sensuality, and pleasure. Organs associated with this chakra include uterus, ovaries, vagina, cervix, large intestine, lower vertebrae, pelvis, appendix, and bladder. It 29
is balanced and harmonized with the colour orange. The verb that best fits this chakra is “I feel.” Solar Plexus Chakra - Manipura chakra, which means “lustrous-gem.” The solar plexus is located in the stomach region of the abdomen represents the development of your personality, selfesteem, and ego. Organs associated with the solar plexus chakra include the area of your solar plexus: your abdomen, upper intestines, liver, gall bladder, stomach, kidney, pancreas, spleen, adrenal system, and middle spine. The colour yellow balances this chakra and is an uplifting colour. The verb associated with the third chakra is “I do.” Heart Chakra - Anahata. The heart chakra is located in your heart centre and represents self-acceptance, compassion, empathy and love. It is also the bridging chakra that links the lower chakras with the higher chakra and so relates to balance. Organs associated with the heart chakra include the heart, lungs, blood vessels, shoulders, ribs, breasts, diaphragm, and upper oesophagus. The colours green for balance and pink for unconditional love help to balance and ensure ideal flow of heart chakra energies. The verb for this chakra is “I love.” Throat Chakra - Visuddha, which means “purification.” This chakra is the energy centre that when balanced allows us to communicate and understand others communication optimally. It is located over the throat and therefore
is associated with the thyroid, trachea, neck vertebrae, throat, mouth, teeth, and gums. The colour for communication is pale blue and is also the balancing colour for this chakra. The verb associated with the fifth chakra is “I speak.”
substance DMT, which maybe the actual physical cause of mystical visions clairvoyants and psychics report. Deepest blue is the colour that balances this energy centre. The verb that corresponds with this chakra is “I see.”
Brow Chakra (Third Eye Chakra) - Ajna, the sanskrit word means “to know,” “to perceive,” “to command.”
Crown Chakra - Sahasrara, which means “thousandfold.” The crown chakra sits on the top of the head and is your connection to your spiritual nature and the Divine, where you allow spirituality to become a part of your physical life. When it is balanced, we connect directly with the universe, dissolve the illusion that we are separate from other humans and other forms of life, and we appreciate our uniqueness and understand the true nature of reality. The gland affected by this chakra is the pituitary. Other body parts affected by the crown chakra include the cerebral cortex and the central nervous system and violet and white are believed to purify and balance this chakra. The verb that corresponds to this chakra is “I understand.”
This energy centre located on the brow bone between the physical eyes is believed to house the actual mystical third eye that clairvoyants and psychics use to see in other dimension and realities. It represents intuition, intellect, visualization, imagination, and reasoning. The organs associated with the brow chakra include the brain, eyes, ears, nose and pineal gland. The pineal gland is somewhat of a mystery in itself in that it releases the powerful natural hallucinogenic 30
Placing crystals of the same colour relating to the chakra helps to balance the chakra as does the practice of toning and specific yoga postures. It is recommended that you seek help from a practicing professional healer to balance them all to bring about personal healing.
The Garden of Gods and Monsters The legends and lore of plants
By Sylvan Simms
The Inflexible, Unturnable One – Atropa belladonna
Part of Atropa’s nature is reflected in the second half of its botanical name. Belladonna, Italian for beautiful lady, describes its use as a cosmetic. The juice was used to dilate a lady’s pupils, and effect which was considered beautiful at certain times in Europe, though there would be considerable difficulty on the lady’s part in focusing on the object of her desire. Indeed there is evidence that this particular attempt at beauty could result in permanent blindness so the paramour would need to be well worth the health risks.
Deadly nightshade (atropa belladonna) is a branching perennial that aesthetically has little to recommend it to the gardener. Yet this straggly weed has a history which has woven itself into the public consciousness for good and ill. The English name recognizes first its potential for harm. That it’s deadly is a given. Laced with atropine, hyoscine, and hyoscine the blue-black fruit are glossy and sweet. It’s these that tend to cause most accidental poisonings, but as all parts of the plant is poisonous it’s also possible to absorb the active ingredients in the sap through the skin. This skin contact can lead to dizziness, sensitivity to light, dry throat and mouth, hallucinations, delirium, and convulsions. To ingest the plant is almost certain death.
The plant has other medicinal benefits although its use has always carried something of a risk. With the progression of the season and variations in the weather, levels of the active compounds will vary considerably. This principle was understood by the healers of old and so less was always preferred to a full dose. For all healers and doctors the control of pain is a primary focus and one where the herbal remedies available for severe pain tend to be in and of themselves dangerous. The use of them effectively demonstrates a great deal of skill which would rival a modern pharmacist. In the case of deadly nightshade we have records of its use from the Roman Empire onwards as a pain reliever, muscle relaxant, anti-inflammatory, and during menstruation. When combined with another plant medicine opium it produces a twilight sleep where very little pain is felt, the patient feels relaxed, but without a loss of consciousness. The actions of the nightshade and the poppy fighting each other and leaving the patient in a blissful state. This antagonistic combination was so useful that Queen Victoria herself was placed in a twilight sleep while she delivered her children. As one of the most poisonous plants known in Europe it has also been used effectively to remove life too though its symptoms are easy to observe and recognize.
Finally when we look to the first half of the botanical name we can see how well the name was given. Atropos was one of the Moirai in Greek mythology who were the daughters of Zeus himself. Intricately bound to them he could command them but at the same time was under their control as were all men and gods. These three sisters, known as the Fates in English, controlled the destiny and lives of all by means of their symbol of a spool of thread. The youngest sister Clotho would spin out the thread while her sister Lachesis would portion out the length of thread, or life, for the individual. It was the job of Atropos the oldest sister to cut the thread and thereby end the life of an individual with her dreaded shears. Not only did she choose the time of a personâ€™s death but also the manner too and when the Romans took her into their myths she became Morta (Death) Try as they might no one could turn her from her duty. She was the implacable, unbendable, inflexible end that must come to gods and men alike. She and her sisters were both honoured and feared by our ancestors. These goddesses were important both in terms of the fate they allotted to people and also at childbirth. Brides would also leave offerings to the three goddesses just before their marriage including gifts of hair. That they were depicted as spinners is important too. The use of looms and the knotting of threads to control another was a common practice, and in the story of the birth of Herakles the sisters used magic to free his life from any knots that others might try to use to control him. This concept of fate and weaving is, forgive the pun, a common thread in mythologies. Indeed the Norns of the Norse are almostexactly the same in action and purpose in all but name.
It is this which led Linnaeus to use her name for so deadly a plant, and perhaps the plants use in witchcraft too. The properties of deadly nightshade would have been known to healers and in combination with other plants can produce ointments that give the sensations of flying whilst in a semi wakefulness. Though there are no recipes, given the fact that the plant was certainly used in such combinations itâ€™s reasonable to see this as the basis for the stories of witches flying on broomsticks. This is not a plant that should ever be worked with either as a remedy or as a garden plant. The nature of it is too dangerous for the amateur and so its removal from the garden is advisable using gloves. Never burn it as the smoke will carry the active compounds too and so it needs to be bagged and binned. When seen in nature, however, there is one thing it will tell you. Because of the conditions it requires to germinate there is a good likelihood that water will be nearby. It also looks similar to its cousin the huckleberry so never gather fruit from a plant which you have not planted as seed personally. Atropos is implacable and no matter how juicy the berries look it is better not to tempt fate.
ne of the most dangerous influences used today in modern society to affect people’s way of thinking is the misinterpretation of the Bible. The danger lies in using scripture to only support personal viewpoints, instead of researching fully the entire truth of a subject. Without studying the full context of everything, it's easy to misconstrue scripture. If you do not believe in the Bible, or Astrology does not interest you, this article may be of little importance to you. Before reading the next few paragraphs, please take a moment to clear your head. Keep an open mind and ask yourself this question: 34
Why did God create the planets, constellations, and stars? An important question was asked to me one day, “does the Bible condemn Astrology?” Anyone can Google that question and very easily find website after website that says yes. As a matter of fact, the first five sites will probably all say yes to that question. They will use passages such as Isaiah 47:13-14 and Deuteronomy 18:10-14 that quote how stargazers, observer of times, the monthly prognosticators and diviners were evil and an abomination to the Lord. However, are these
being taking out of context? Let’s look at the passage of Deuteronomy 18. This is a perfect example of taking a passage out of context about divine inspiration. The passage says: Deuteronomy 18:10-15 10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee. 13 Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God. 14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.
However, if we keep on reading the same passage, look at verse 15: 15 The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken; Isn’t a prophet the same thing as a diviner? The difference is where the message is coming from. Any tool itself cannot be evil. It is the person or spirit wielding the tool that can make it evil or not. God used prophets or seers to send all kinds of different messages of God to the people. He also used dream interpreters such as Daniel to divine and predict the future 35
as well. Seventeen of the 39 books in the Old Testament are called the “Prophetic Books” from Isaiah to Malachi. However, those people that called upon evil spirits to get these same types of “gifts,” are what made them evil. It was not the tools or the gifts themselves that were evil. In the first book of the Bible, the first chapter, the Bible tells us specifically why God made the stars, planets, and other celestial bodies. Genesis 1:14-18 14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of
the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. The “lights” (stars, constellations and planets) were for several things; but first and foremost, for SIGNS, then for seasons, and then for timekeeping (days and years). Most people have it the other way around, and say that it is truly only for timekeeping purposes. It also says that the two great lights ruled day and night. It’s interesting how in astrology the Sun and Moon sign of a person are the two most important aspects of a person’s birth chart, and personality. The sun sign is where the sun was when you were born and rules the logical and conscious side of you. Your moon sign is where the moon was when you were born and rules the emotional and subconscious drives.
We also see, in the book of Job, God asking several questions regarding his majestic works to his humble servant. Job 38:31-33: 31 Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?
32 Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons? 33 Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth? This says the celestial constellations like Pleiades and Orion have “influences.” The word Mazzaroth literally means the 12 signs of the zodiac. Many interpreters avoid interpreting that word because it means just that in Hebrew. God brings forth the signs of the zodiac in their seasons. And lastly, there are “ordinances of heaven” that rule or have dominion here on Earth. Celestial bodies influence us here on Earth, according to the Bible. We also see a correlation between the twelve signs of the zodiac with the twelve tribes of Israel. This is shown in Genesis 49 when Jacob blesses the tribes, and also again in Deuteronomy 33 when Moses performs his blessing. God ordered Moses to have the twelve tribes of Israel camp around the holy tabernacle in the order of the zodiac. The entrance to the camp had four gateways, Judea, Rueben, Ephraim, and Dan. These four tribes represented each a different element of the zodiac, earth, air, fire, and water. These four tribes also correlate to the vision that Ezekiel had in Ezekiel chapter 1 about the four animals and four elements. Another important aspect of astrology the Bible talks about is an Age. Astrologers and scientists both have never been able to determine exactly how long an age is, but it is approximately around 2,000 years. For us who have lived in this generation, we have had an extraordinary and unique opportunity. Not only have we experienced a cross over into a
centennial year (every 100 years), and not just a millennial (1000 years, when 1999-2000 occurred) but also an AGE. I personally believe December 21, 2012 was the end of the age, The Age of Pisces, and the beginning of the new age we are in, the Age of Aquarius! Many believe that God created Adam and Eve during the Age of Gemini, which some theorists have dated to be around 6380 BC. Since Gemini is the sign of writing, communication and travel, this is when communication and languages flourished. God spoke directly to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden before the fall of man, and after the fall, that direct line was severed. So communication was the theme that ruled that age. Genesis chapter 11 tells of the story of the Tower of Babel and how many languages were formed. Some people have depicted the sign of the twins as Adam and Eve, the first two people created. Adam and Eve’s first children, Cain and Abel, are also believed to be twins. Abel was favored, and Cain was not, illustrating the two fold personality that Gemini represents. During this time in other Ancient religions, many people worshipped TWO gods instead of just one. It is interesting that Mercury is the first planet (closest to the Sun) in our solar system; Mercury is the ruling planet for Gemini and is known as the planet of communication and travel. Mercury is also known in Mythology as Hermes, the messenger of the gods. It is because the rotation of the Earth and the “wobble” affect that the Earth has (like a spinning top) that we progress through the ages backwards. So after the Age of Gemini, we entered the age of Taurus, the bull. Again, it is interesting that Venus, the second planet in our Solar System, is the ruling planet for Taurus. 37
Hindu religion was formed during this time and to this day still clings to its cattle worship, from this age. As with the zodiac, each age influences the world and takes on certain aspects of influence of that zodiac sign. Since Taurus also rules the second house of the zodiac, the house of material possessions and values, we see many cultures that focused on material things, like the Egyptians for one. Even in their death rituals, Egyptians were buried with several valuable items to aid them in their life beyond the physical world. As an earth sign, the Age of Taurus was also an agricultural revolution where agriculture flourished. As the Age of Taurus gave way to the Age of Aries, bull sacrifices gave way to the sacrifice of the ram. The famous story of faith that Abraham demonstrated in Genesis 22 tells us the story of God providing a ram in the thicket, to replace Abraham’s son as a sacrifice. Also, the people of Israel were commanded to offer a burnt sacrifice of a ram without blemish, once a year as atonement for their sins. God was given a new name during this era and became known as Jehovah, the warrior god. This illustrated the epitome of the Aries sign: the warrior, mercenary, explorer, and leader. It was a militant time during this Age. Mars, the next planet after Earth, is the planet that rules Aries. Mars is also known as the planet of war, action, ambition and fiery energy. Are we seeing a pattern yet in the physical anatomy of our solar system? Before Neptune was discovered on September 23, 1846, Jupiter was said to be the ruling planet of Pisces, which just happens to be the next planet in our solar system’s alignment.
The transition of the Age of Aries to the Age of Pisces was a significant one. This was around the time that Jesus was born. Jesus said in Revelation:
We have already see the huge jump in many things becoming digitalized and more advanced. Jesus foretold of the Age of Aquarius in his gospels.
1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
21:6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end... As Jesus quotes in Revelation, Jesus linked the first sign of the zodiac (Aries) with the last sign of the Zodiac (Pisces), the beginning with the end, the Alpha and the Omega. In the previous age, fire (the element of Aries) was sacred and used in all sacrifices and burnt offerings. Now suddenly water became holy (the element of Pisces), and baptisms by water were introduced. Christianity became the most popular religion and has been for the past two thousand years. The symbol of Christianity is commonly known as the fish. Jesus called his disciples fishers of men. They were known for drawing fish in the sand. As the sign of Pisces is naturally romantic and creative, we have seen some of the most talented artists in the Age of Pisces: Da Vinci, Van Gough, Raphael, Michelangelo, Shakespeare, Mozart, Beethoven, even Walt Disney who drew all of his first cartoons entirely by hand; and the list goes on and on. All of these people were blessed with natural talent of creating art, music, tales, etc. As are entering in the Age of Aquarius, the personality of this sign will take on the theme in the world. Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the planet of humankind, revolution, freedom, and going against the flow. This sign/planet also favors new, original, ideas and therefore rules inventions, and new technology. 38
And he sendeth forth two of his disciples, and saith unto them, Go ye into the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water: follow him. The man bearing the pitcher of water represents Aquarius, and what was to come. Aquarius is depicted as the manly water bearer, pouring its water out to the world. Aquarians are usually very human people, and love to help humankind. This is the age that we are in now. Aquarians usually look at the big picture; so likewise, there may be a few that fall by the way side now, or a small minority of hurts, but as long as the majority thrive and are helped, then this is okay. It is very evident that in the Bible, over and over, we see mentions of celestial bodies, signs, ages, the zodiac and their influences on our lives. Today, most people will tell you what I have just mentioned is heretical and blasphemy. The truth is people fear what they donâ€™t understand, and will always try to discredit it. However, if we learn to research things fully for ourselves, ask questions, and trust our gut instinct, we will eventually find the truth for ourselves. This article may provoke you to make your own decision and decide if in fact the Bible does condemn Astrology. If you still believe the answer to be yes, we return to the original question: why did God create the planets, constellations, and stars?
When we sleep at night, our physical body gets rest, but something else also happens when we dream. Our subconscious mind may be sending messages to us that we should pay attention to in our waking life. Many times these dreams are not literal or mean exactly what happened in the dream. For example, if you dream of being stabbed to death, it doesnâ€™t necessarily mean that it will happen, but there could still be an important message there for you to decode. Also, many dreams are exaggerated to catch our attention which is usually the reason why we remember them. Colors, places, people, things that are over exemplified all can play an important part of decoding your dreams. Each month, we will share a few actual dreams, with their interpretations, to help teach the meanings behind some of these important symbols we all might experience. This month we focus on one particular lengthy dream from one of our Dream Codes members. Not only was this a long dream that had lots of symbolism, I wanted to share this particular situation, because it took both, the dreamer and the interpreter to come to an interpretation that made sense. Remember, the dreamer is the most accurate interpreter. By sharing some of these symbols that others have also dreamt about, little by little, you may be able to decipher your own Dream Codes.
*(Dreams shared in Dream Codes Magazine are with the permission of the dreamer who has shared their dream in our Dream Codes forum) MicolĂĄii: Brothers and sisters, I need your gifts of interpretation here please Dreamt I was walking with family and this girl that was supposedly my cousin's girlfriend/fiancĂŠ was talking to me she was beautiful and really sweet. We started talking about how she, as well as I, come from a family of free spirits and people who love people for who they are, not what they look like or what they have. That increased our bond greatly. Really warm heart, she had. Then it switches scenes. The setting was a mystical, but dim forest that seemed very alive. I started towards 2 old black shamans' houses...they lived pretty close to each other. The first shaman I visited had short black hair. Upon arriving to his house, there were zombies everywhere! I grabbed a sharp knife and began knocking them off like flies (no, I have not been watching Walking Dead). Somehow I made it through the zombies to the first shaman's house. I don't recall what occurred but I wasn't there long. I know that I made it a point to get to the 2nd shaman's house fast. The second shaman had salt and pepper colored braids. He also had a special little box sitting on a table on his porch. I had been here before for the box. Then I walked up on the porch for the box, and went inside to talk to him. I went to his house a couple of times before I set out for the forest because I needed that box and the blade. I was not Unprotected at the other shamans house...it's just the second one had what I needed. They were both really caring like they knew me and wanted to help/see me overcome. 39
While at the 2nd Shaman's spot, I saw zombies and what may have been causas as well. One after the other walking or slithering up from over by a stream next to the old shaman's house. But these ones were oblivious to me when I was on his porch. They kept going. When i was in his house he mentioned something about when I was a little girl in my room, and needing to get the AC fixed to protect me in some way. I didn't understand... After that, I was in the forest again. I saw big bats flying. A lady (an old friend of my sister's) with luggage was behind me, trying to make it to her destination. And I was ready to slice the necks of any undead out to harm. She followed me to a safe haven where my mom's dead black cat was playing around, being her ornery self That's all i remember...yes it's all over the place TIM: These could be two separate dreams. The first part about your cousin's fiancĂŠ, I believe represents some aspect of yourself that is "new" but it is something that you are familiar with. A cousin is someone you know that is close but not too close... And I believe you are becoming accepting of this new aspect in your life and think of it as "beautiful and really sweet." This is a very positive bond that will probably grow. Then you go to a much different scene where you are seeking spiritual guidance in two different areas of your life (2 shamans). However first thing is you have to cut out these zombies. A knife is used for very close combat in close quarters; you didn't have a Gun for example it was a knife. So I think these zombies represent people that are close to you. The zombies could represent people that are dead on the inside, going through the motions of living, wanting to make you also feel like them, and not respecting your spiritual journey, that is why they are attacking you. When a light shines bright, it draws attention. These people that are dead are undetached from what is really going on around them. You could feel a bit overwhelmed by this, but you were victorious of killing them which I feel represents that you need to "cut" these people out of your life that could be holding you back to get where you need to go. You know the ones. This is descriptive of your physical world. I'll explain more. The Shaman with the short dark hair represents your physical life, dark short hair representing staying grounded, not as intuitive, and seeing your spiritual life in a practical way. One saying goes, don't be so heavenly minded that you are no earthly good, but also don't be so earthly minded that you are no spiritually good! So keep that in mind in your dealings with others that aren't "so" spiritual as you... But cut out the ones you don't need. A forest represents a time of testing, so you could be in a time of testing in your life which will really determine the direction of your life. The order of the dream and how it develops is important to see that you need to do this first then...the next part.... The second shaman represents your spiritual life; and this is where you spend more time (you like spiritual things more than earthly things naturally, so makes sense that you would spend more time here). The salt and pepper represents balance like Black/white, yin/yang, light/dark; braids are having things in order, a neat and orderly way of thinking and strong. Hair can also represent our intuition as it is like antennas growing out of our heads to the universe, so the long braids I think represent strong intuition/thinking, psychic gifts, but not random, they are neat and orderly. A box represents structure, since it was something that you needed, along with the knife, you must cut out certain things, but be consistent, and find the structure you need to get your things in order. At this house, zombies weren't attacking you. Streams are about the flow of things and your emotions, and it doesn't look like these 40
things are going to bother you at a spiritual emotional level, but the recommendation about the AC may be that YOU yourself need to cool off and not let yourself get so "hot" that you lose control. Towards the end, defending the woman with the luggage I see that you will help others to get through their forests (and time of testing) with their "baggage" that they are carrying... but remember the order of the dream. Seems you need to help yourself first, before you help others. The bats are a very important symbol. Bats are the closest animal that represents the Phoenix and themes of Rebirth and transformation, as they fly to their caves and rest (which represents the womb of Mother Earth), to arise again the next evening. So through the forest and testings’ there will probably be some transformations especially in the way you think, since they were flying over your head. In the end, the black cat is intuition of the unknown things; you were safe there at your mother's place; you will eventually "arrive" where you need to go. Micoláii: I cut those people off already (You and I have delved into this privately so you may know what i'm speaking on) By the way, one bat was flying low to the ground; the other was up in the air but kind of swooping down towards me. I wasn't scared of them, just dodged them so i could get where i needed to be. Sorry for that little omission. By the way LUZ to you!! You're flippin' AWESOME at this (already knew it though!) They're so in depth, I always want to go back, reread and reflect. Thanks a lot. TIM: Anytime! So considering that, this COULD be a past/ present/ future dream.... The past was, cutting off those people (and yes I remember, glad that you are past all that, just wasn't sure). The Present could be now travelling to the 2nd SHAMAN where the second part applies, and these zombies are no longer bothering you, you are just focusing on getting some more structure. The Future would be the last part, where you are helping others, and there are transformations going on, the one bat flying low to the ground, could represent one particular transformation in your physical world... And the end still applies. Micoláii: Nice!! You RAWK!! Curtains closed. It's a wrap. ^__^ lol. Luz y progreso man! To me it seems like that might have been a complicated dream to decipher. So much going on, a lot of symbolism, things omitted the first round...and I feel you knocked it out of the ballpark...like a champ. Blessings to you and yours. (: TIM: Lol. Glad I could help. Thank you.
