15 UCM was founded in 1908 as a church in which members are encouraged to develop and exercise their spiritual powers. We discourage adherence to rigid dogmas and tenets, believing that each person must find and travel his/her own path in the Light, and that no single set of fixed rules is applicable to everyone in their spiritual quest.
Reverend Sandy Clark
I and according to the Nielson TV ratings, quite a few others, watched the Super Bowl this February. Not at a party, but at home sitting quietly on my couch. Well almost quiet, I did scream when New Orleans made the interception and scored a touchdown. I did not have a vested interest in the outcome, either team could have won and I would have been okay. But there is something about rooting for the underdog. I like most people I know like to see the underdog win. There is something in that message that indicates if the situation is stacked against me; there is a chance I could still pull it off! I believe that is called HOPE, and I believe there is always hope. I subscribe to numerous email newsletters and others are forwarded to me by some of you. I admit some only get a glance unless something grabs my attention, but I do like to know what is being sent out even if I do not always agree with the information. Since the first of this year I have seen a lot of what I refer to as gloom and doom emails. Quite frankly I do not have time for that. I admit with all the rain we have been having, not seeing the sun has damped my outlook for a time, but you know what, the sun has come out again. Plus I always knew it was out there even if I could not see it. I admit things appear much brighter with the sun out, just looking out my office window on the patio everything is much sharper in color and appears to have more life in it. In addition there is more activity, the birds visit, along with the squirrels and an occasional cat. We can surround ourselves with items that we think will make our lives easier and brighter, and there certainly is nothing wrong in doing that. However may I remind you we have the power within ourselves to choose how we see. I can choose to see nothing but doom and gloom surrounding me, or I can choose to see the sunny side surrounding me, what I refer to as the Light. Easy for you, I hear you thinking, no it is not always easy. There are times, even days when I have to work at the seeing the Light. Some times just getting out of bed I sit and am grateful that I can get out of bed. There are times when I really have to tell myself, you have a family that loves you, a house, a job, reasonably good health, a car, food in the house to eat, and clothing in the closet to wear. There have been times when I have been grateful I had a tooth brush to brush my teeth with! Devastating events have occurred in the world, most recently the earthquake in Haiti. Many of us have had or are experiencing devastating events within our own families. Loved ones making transitions, illness, and loss of job, even homes. Each of us has had some tragedy or will have a tragedy in our lives. Mine was quite some time ago, but I can still recall the event and how I went into some sort of numb survival mode. I remember hearing huge metal doors closing in my head as if to keep everything out of my mind except what I needed to do at each moment. Looking back I now believe spirit helped me by protecting me and sending me helpers who made sure I ate, ran errands for me and took care of my immediate needs. I have always been grateful to spirit and those on this plane who helped me. It was definitely not the best of times for me which reaffirms to me that we are all protected, guided and that we all have the opportunity to choose the Light. May you see the Light surrounding you. With Light and Love, Sandy
Releasing Negative Entities using EBERT By Reverend Corky Whitacre, CCHt San Jose, Calif.
The four-‐step EBERT process
EarthBound Entity Releasement Technique, EBERT, is a four-‐step process that can be used by anyone struggling with negative energy and attachments. In the EBERT workshop, students learn how to detect the presence of an earthbound entity, detach it from the person, place or thing it has penetratred, release it from the earth plane by persuading it to go to the Light, and teach the “host” how to protect and stay clear of future attachments. The four steps in this technique—detect, detach, release and stay cleared—have been used to successfully release earthbound entities (EBEs), extra-‐terrestrials, inter-‐dimensional beings, debilitating thought forms, curses and more. Remote EBERT can be used to clear your family, friends, pets, workplace, home, neighborhood, sports arenas, amusement sites, hospitals, jails, battlefields, and any place where anger, hatred, fear, tragedy or mass destruction exists in the world. Typically, an earthbound entity is the disembodied spirit of a deceased person, retaining all the physical, emotional and earthly baggage it had when alive. As long as the spirit stays on the earth plane, it will continue to see the world as it did before death. The entity still has “free will” to choose to go to the Light or remain on earth. If it chooses to stay, it becomes an earthbound entity and may roam the earth or attach itself to a living being, location or object. Attachment to a person occurs when an earthbound entity merges with the subconscious mind of a living person. The entity may exert its personality, fears, phobias, addictions, illnesses, ailments, physical limitations and/or whatever personal agenda it has on the unsuspecting prey. It does so by influencing the thought processes, emotions, behavior and the physical body of the victim. It may lie dormant, simply sapping the energy of its host. Either way, the earth bound entity is a parasite. It sucks the life energy out of the mind, body and soul; the very core of the living since human. Historical references of possession Earthbound entity attachment, the full or partial takeover of a living human by an entity, has been recognized and documented in every era and in every culture around the world. Earthbound entity attachment has existed the dawn of the human race. It’s mentioned in folk lore, oral traditions, literature and written history of both primitive and civilized cultures throughout history. Early writings of the Chinese, Egyptians, Hebrews, and Greeks show that mental disorders (and really bad behavior) were generally attributed to demons working through and/or within an individual. Historical accounts of the Dark Ages are full of stories about demonic possession and the ruthless means used to extract it/them, usually killing the host in the process. Possession is defined today as it was thousands of years ago—an invasion by a demon of a person’s body and soul. Shaman, medicine man, and the clergy have historically been in charge of “casting out” or “exorcising” spirits using rituals ranging from verbal incantations and incense to beating a person with sticks. Jesus, the
most publicized exorcist, went about casting out demons and commissioned his 12 disciples to heal the sick, cast out unclean spirits, and entity attachment. Modern-‐day example Earthbound entity attachment can cause a person to feel there is something wrong with them, when in reality, it’s the negative influence of an entity. For example, one of of my clients came in complaining of low energy, low self esteem, depression, feelings of dread, shame, guilt, regret and failure. This young girl was confused about her sexuality, could not keep a job, didn’t want to go to school and couldn’t stay in a healthy relationship. She was a bright, attractive girl going to Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings to get her life together. Once in trance, we found seven entities, all highly dysfunctional and contributing to her despair. All entities had died of drug and/or alcohol overdose, street violence or suicide, including a dominant teenage male who wanted to be sexually active and didn’t like her being with men; a prostitute who was very ashamed of herself, and a 10-‐year-‐old alcoholic boy who had committed suicide. It was particularly difficult for the client to release the boy, because she blamed herself for his death. When a person has lived with these feelings most of her life, she may identify with those feelings instead of her true self. After a long, emotional session, my client lovingly released all of her demons. Today she is alcohol and drug-‐free, very confident and studying for a Master’s degree in psychology. How do we know what happens when we die? Thanks to extensive research in near death experiences and tremendous improvements in medical procedures, hundreds of people have been “brought back from the dead” to share what happens to our soul when we die. We know we have the choice of going into the Light or staying on the earth plane. If we choose to stay on the earth plane, we become earthbound entities, stuck until we find our way to the Light. If we choose to go into the Light, we may have the typical death experience. This includes immediate relief from physical, emotional and spiritual pain, a smooth and natural transition to the spirit realm with no loss of consciousness; the etheric body lifting up and floating out of the physical shell; and an opportunity to observe a panoramic view of our lives. A bright Light filled with unconditional love is always near, and loved ones, guiding spirits or angels come to greet and assist us in moving to the Light. EBEs vs. spirit guides Earthbound entities are not to be confused with spirit guide. Spirit guides have their own source of energy and power, which comes from God/Goddess/All that Is, our divine source. They do not need or want our energy for they come from the Light. Entities have very little energy, and their only source of energy is what they draw from the host. Spirit guides are not judgmental, critical, intrusive or interfering. They give advice and guidance only when asked and have no earthly needs of their own. An earthbound entity may be very egotistical in its attitudes and judgments and often satisfies its very human needs and appetites through the senses and physical apparatus of the human. The earthbound entity has its own agenda for living. The spirit guide has no agenda of its own. A spirit guide has no residue to impose on a person; the earthbound entity often inflicts its ailments on the host. The only purpose of the true spirit guide is to serve the incarnated being.

The Astrology of the Anti-Christ’s Birth By: Elizabeth A. Barton If the Anti-Christ were born during our time, when would the birth have occurred? Before I can address this question, I must ask myself, “What is an Anti-Christ?” I know that the prefix anti- means “opposed to, against, in opposition to, contrary, or, in place of.” This brings us to the next question, “What is a Christ?”
First of all, it wasn’t Jesus’ last name; it was a moniker, a title, denoting his link to the prophecies in the Tanakh/Old Testament. The prophecy was that of a messiah arriving to guide humankind. The word Christ derives from the Greek “Christos” meaning to “anoint” or “the Anointed One” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christ).
Since the title Christ contains a focus on anointing, I also asked myself, “What was the composition of the substance used to anoint Jesus?” And, “Who anointed Jesus?” Did the Divine materialize and anoint Jesus with the essence of the Holy Spirit as many students of scripture have claimed? Over the years I have read that several people claim that the Holy Spirit is the Divine Feminine, The Sophia, Divine Wisdom, the Shekinah. To us regular humans, anointing is usually done with a salve, oil or cream in a ceremony. Sacred oil is placed on the forehead/third eye, as an incantation or prayer is recited. This is done to bring the person into a sacramental frame of mind and spirit or to remove unwanted Energies. (Here is an old recipe for anointing…use wisely.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holy_anointing_oil) Therefore, if we combine Anti = “opposed to” with Christ = “receiving a holy sacrament” we get someone who is “opposed to receiving a holy sacrament.” Kind of sounds like a non-spiritual person…eh? In my estimation the Anti-Christ would be a person, male or female, who was self, absorbed; only thinking of his benefits, his work, and his mission. Not caring if he harmed other life, he would only care about his needs. The Anti-Christ would be able to experiment on animals and people, ignoring their pain and whimpers. He would not view life as a holy sacrament, which is to be honored and given respect. He would use it for gain. Every sign and horoscope has the potential to run the gamut for good and evil. But during our time, one astrological date sticks out from all the rest as to when this cold hearted, charismatic, academically brilliant monster came into existence. If the Anti Christ (AC) were born during our time it would have been on February 5th 1962. Here is how I came to that conclusion. February 5th is one of eight high holy days of the Ancients. The solstice points and the equinox points make up the Solar Cross in the Cardinal mode, while the cross quarters are made up of the 15th degree of the fixed signs; 15 Aquarius, 15 Taurus, 15, Leo and 15 Scorpio. In ancient Chaldea, the Magi*, the astrologer priests said the cross quarters were the “Pillars of Heaven”, and they assigned four stars to be the “Royal Stars, Watchers of the Gates.” The Royal star for the east was Aldebran - the eye of the bull, which marked the spring equinox. The Royal Star for the north was Regulus - the Lion’s heart, which marked the ancient summer solstice. The Royal Star for the west was Antares - the Scorpion’s heart, which marked the autumnal equinox. And the Royal star for the south was Fomalhaut - the mouth of the fish, which marked the winter solstice. Note: In the sky of ancient Chaldea the constellation Taurus was rising in the east, on the first day of spring. When you take the 4 cardinal signs and the 4 cross quarters composed of fixed signs, you get an eightpointed star or two squares, which equates to a union of opposite principles. The marriage of polarity as it manifests in this material world. In astrological terms, you have two Grand Squares. A Grand Square is composed of two oppositions squaring each other…not an easy aspect. The eight points represent the eight times of the year when the veil between the worlds can be lifted, it is a time for communicating with the other side and a time of immense power and High Magic…for good or evil. To maximize the output of High Magick, it has to done when the Sun is at the zero degree of the Cardinal points and the fifteenth degree of the fixed signs. (It is interesting to note the historical significance of these dates: Go look up the dates and times that governments have launched wars or occupations. An example would be the American attack on Iraq, which occurred in 2003 on the spring equinox.)
The animals of the cross quarters - the Bull for Taurus, Lion for Leo, Phoenix for Scorpio and Angel for Aquarius - play heavily in the symbology of the Occult arts, which derive in part from the Kabbalah. Look at the Rider Tarot card “The Wheel of Fortune.” (Scorpio is the only sign to have three animal symbols; a scorpion, the eagle and the phoenix. It is my opinion that Aquarius has two symbols, the human and the Angel.) In the indigenous Earth/Sky religions of the British Isles and Europe, this eight-pointed formation is also known as the wheel of the year. The roots of neo-paganism in America can be traced back here. Starting with the Winter Solstice the Pagan names for the eight points in the wheel of the year are: Yule, Imbolc, Ostara, Beltane, Litha, Lammas/ Lughnassadh, Mabon and Samhain/Halloween. The 15 degree of Aquarius, Imbolc, is the one we are interested in. It is when the Goddess returns from the underworld carrying her new Son/Sun in her arms. She brings back the light from the darkness. She is the “LIGHTBEARER”. Imbolc is the festival of the returning Light, of purification and fertility. Imbolc is also known as Candlemas, Oimelc, Brigit, Brigid's Day, Bride's Day, Brigantia, Gŵyl y Canhwyllau. Imbolc was derived from the Gaelic word "oimele", meaning "ewes milk", and in Celtic Ireland was connected to when the ewes started lactating in preparation to birth their spring lambs. So let’s start weaving this information together… February 5, 1962, falls on the 15th degree of Aquarius. The day of the returning of the “Light” (spiritual enlightenment), the day named for “the preparation of the Birth of the Lamb,” the day of the light bearer’s return with the new light for the New Year. On this day in 1962, the sun rose then went into a total eclipse. The Light bearer burst out of the underworld, and then showed us her dark baby. Another name for the light bearer is Lucifer. Instead of the brilliant life giving light of the Sun, we have a dark Sun/Son rising! Now where on the planet did this total eclipse occur? The first link below will give you the path of the total eclipse. It started west of Mexico and went south of Hawaii. The first land the total eclipse touched was Dai Island of the Solomon Islands; the last part was East Borneo. Somewhere within the path of this total eclipse is where I surmise the Anti-Christ was born. It could be on land, a boat, or on a luxury cruiser. http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEgoogle/SEgoogle1951/SE1962Feb05Tgoogle.html (Note: See ***in footnotes for more NASA Maps and Links for Total eclipse.) We do not know if this child is a female or male but we know s/he was born in the morning. Who knows? Perhaps there may be more than one; maybe there are twins, the proverbial “heir and a spare.” If s/he was born on a ship s/he can be a citizen of any country. Let’s return to Eclipse patterns. All eclipses run in a series called a Saros cycle. There are approximately 72 eclipse cycles of 18 years, 11 days and 8 hours in one Saros Cycle. The total eclipse of February 05, 1962 is in the Saros Cycle 130, which started on August 20, 1096 and ends on October 25, 2394 (http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEsaros/SEsaros130.html). If the 1096 date rings with recognition…Yes, it was the month and year the first Crusade was launched. So will the AC be the leader of the last crusade? A brief review of the Crusades reveals that they had little to do with the love of the Divine; they had to do with politics, profits, and over population. The AC will also have little to do with the basic message of all the religions. …Love. S/he will play upon the self-righteous, the proud, the intolerant, and the fanatical…. Here is a sample of what one of these people will say: “I love you! But I am going to have to kill you to save your soul.” Talk about fuzzy logic! But wait. …there is more! This happened while all the classical planets conjoined in a rare astronomical Grand Conjunction. All were within 16 degrees of each other, in the sign of Aquarius. In my estimation, the perfect combination for the Anti-Christ would be a triple Aquarius, (Aquarius Sun, Moon, and Ascendant), born as the Sun was rising totally eclipsed. But alas, due to the time and place of the total eclipse this did not play out. What we do have is a birth at the opening of the Ancient South Gate, which released the Energy of the Chaldean Winter Solstice (15 Aquarius) by a Dark Sun on the festival of the return of Light. It reminds me of W.B. Yeats poem written in 1920, The Second Coming. Turning and turning in the widening gyre, The falcon cannot hear the falconer; things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, the blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere the ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity. Surely some revelation is at hand; Surely the Second Coming is at hand. The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out when a vast image out of Spritus Mundi Troubles my sight: somewhere in the sands of the desert a shape with lion body and the head of a man, A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun, is moving its slow thighs, while all about it reel shadows of the indignant desert birds. The darkness drops again; but now I know that twenty centuries of stony sleep were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle, And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

An Educational Vision Quest By Reverend Angela DeBry, H.H.D, D.D.
From 1908 until 1992 UCM taught its’ ministers through what some call the Socratic method. This was our Life Path Program; which continues to this date. An individual would find a UCM Minister who shared their theological philosophy and study with them for a minimum of one year to become a Licentiate Minister and a minimum of another year to become an Ordained Minister. We really do embrace and practice our belief that each person must find and travel his or her own path to the Light, and that no single set of fixed rules is applicable to everyone in their spiritual quest. The Life Path model seemed to fit the requirements of this time and allow a truly personal theological path. In 1992 we realized, through a lot of requests, that we needed a more formalized program for individuals who required degrees and from students who didn’t have a UCM minister in their area to study with. This need became our vision quest, “to create a formal theological degree program for an individual.” We worked on this program, first completing the undergraduate Associate and Bachelor of Theology Programs. We applied for and received the California Postsecondary and Vocational Religious Exemption #7472210. We then were able to complete our accreditation through The Accrediting Commission International, the largest non-governmental seminary accrediting organization.
The next big step was a graduate program and we wanted to complete this no later that 2008 as a part of our 100 year celebration. Happily we were able to roll out the Master of Theology Degree by our 2007 annual meeting and yes, we completed the Doctor of Divinity by May of 2008, fully accredited at our 100-year celebration.
The creation of this program represented a community vision quest for UCM. It is the intent of this program to facilitate individuals in their personal spiritual growth, by designing a comprehensive ministerial degree program that includes components of comparative religion, spiritual and holistic healing models, spiritual counseling techniques, and techniques for ongoing spiritual growth. We want you to walk your own Vision Quest and discover through the Degree Program your spiritual journey. You may take the program to become a Healer Practitioner, Licentiate Minister or Ordained Minister. You may also take the program for personal growth and a better understanding of spiritual teachings from around the world. We actually had a businessman who travels extensively for his corporate job take the program to better understand the different cultures he encountered. Your degree is what you make of it and how it works for you in your day-to-day life. We have graduates that work as drug and alcohol pastoral counselors, in hospice organizations, in the public school system to fight violence with special programs, as counselors and healers (holistically, and spiritually). We have graduates that became ministers and founded their own charters or who quietly work as solitary ministers however their heart calls to them. We have Christians, Wiccans, Hindus Buddhists, those that follow a Goddess path and those that just want to embrace the best of all paths. This diversity is the strength of who and what UCM is. Below you will find a basic overview of the requirements of both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs. These programs allow you to work at your own pace. We have ministers that work with you via computer, phone or regular mail. We will tailor our communication to fit your needs in most cases.

Continued from Page 5… Releasing Negative Entities with EBERT
A spirit guide does not attach to a human and cannot be exorcised, although it can be dismissed. Spirit guides are usually more spiritually evolved than the humans they mentor, and consequently are at a higher vibrational level. Earthbound entities are not spiritually evolved. They cannot generate their own energy and have such low vibration they are often undetected by spirit guides. When do EBEs attach Earthbound entities may attach anytime from immediately after their death to hundreds of years later. The newly deceased spirit may hover or float near the scene of death—the hospital, battlefield, accident site or any place of death. It may later describe rushing to its home to be near the family. Attachment to any given person may be completely random, even accidental. Most of the time no connection can be found between the earthbound entity and the host. The attachment is simply a result of an accident of time and location. The surprised entity, oblivious of the spiritual reality, unaware of any other place to go, simply gives up and settles in. From the standpoint of the living, we are vulnerable any time our aura is vibrating at a reduced rate. The aura is an electromagnetic force field that surrounds our body. Every living thing on this earth has an aura. When energized, the aura acts as a shield, protecting us from most psychic attacks, negative energies, attachments, etc. Dr. Edith Fiore explains how the aura works in, The Unquiet Dead. Most surgical anesthetics leave you completely vulnerable and open to the penetration of an entity. Trauma of various kinds, either emotional or physical, can create a temporary collapse of the aura’s system. Similarly, all huge emotions, such as panic, rage, desperation, can be responsible for the collapse of the defense system. Physical shocks are also among common causes that may allow an entity to penetrate. Intoxication by any substance, taking medications, unconsciousness, giving birth, or being sexually assaulted are other circumstance that can weaken the aura and make people susceptible to attachment. Think of your aura as your etheric immune system. You can keep from physically catching a cold by building up your resistance with a proper diet and vitamins. You can strengthen your resistance to earthbound entity attachment by keeping your vibration raised and your aura strong. Just as most people don’t know where they pick up a particular “flu bug,” an earthbound entity attachment may be a complete surprise to the average victim. Keep your aura strong One of the things you can do right now to strengthen your aura is surround yourself with golden white Light. This is the Christ Light. Think joyful, loving thoughts. Sing, laugh, play, do things that empower you and make you happy. Most of all, stop judging others or yourself. Love unconditionally, with no strings attached and surround yourself with positive, joyful, interesting, adventurous people. Like/love yourself the way you are right now. You can also keep your aura strong by avoiding the following things that weaken the aura: • excessive negative emotions, such as anger, rage, panic, fear • depression, sadness • being startled • drug/alcohol overdose and abuse
• anesthesia, even mild doses of pharmaceutical drugs • severe illness, even long term illness that is not severe • violence, hostilities, wars, battles, assaults • hate, hateful thinking, contemplating revenge and evil deeds • emotional or physical trauma • physical shock such as a blow to the head • any condition that creates unconsciousness • fatigue, especially exhaustion About Corky Whitacre Rev. Corky Whitacre has been a practitioner of various alternative healing techniques for more than 25 years; including hypnotherapy, EarthBound Entity Releasement Technique, Neuro-‐Linguistic Programming, Time Line Therapy, spiritual counseling, empowerment and motivational coaching. She uses regression, issue-‐specific hypnosis, reframing, clearing of the past, forgiving of the past, losing the guilt and judgment, affirmations visualization, and earth-‐bound entity release to allow clients to set and accomplish their goals and eliminate habits, ideas, beliefs, language, self image, etc. that obscure the path or get in the way of successfully reaching their goals. Her practice is dedicated to actually removing obstacles that prevent the client from the possibilities available to them. After completing certification classes in 1985 Palo Alto School of Hypnotherapy, Corky became a certified clinical hypnotherapist. She created the EarthBound Entity Releasement Technique in 1993, studied Neuro-‐ Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Time Line Therapy with Alexis Stone in 1990, and began her UCM ministerial training with Father John Lawrence in 1980. She became an ordained UCM minister in 2004.

One would think being a schoolteacher being up here wouldn’t scare him, but it is different up here, and now he had to sing all by himself. He took to it though, and we all enjoy him. Howard also has learned to lead us in meditation and prayer. He also serves in pastoral care with the ill and injured. Howard is just a wonderful man that laughs with the rest of the members here and is always eager to learn and help out around here.

and spiritual practices for most of her life. She has had a calling to be of service for many years.
A Foundation for Love By Eve Wilson Seek love first within your own heart. Find it in the little things in your days and nights. Find it in the bathroom mirror, when you look into your own eyes and remember that the eternal and divine is within you and within everything. Love is a way of being and a way of interacting with life, where you make every act significant and every moment a gift to the creator. If God lived within you (and he/she does) what would God do today? How would he/she respond to your circumstances? Love yourself when you are angry because anger is fear that we aren’t loved and safe. So, open to that place within yourself where you recognize that your fear is a child and love yourself where you are small and wounded. Forgive yourself for being unkind when you feel this way. You are precious and divine. Give thanks for the things in life that stress you out, they are your greatest teachers. They ask you to find muscles and courage and power that you didn’t believe you owned. Being God in human form, all things exist within you in potential, but you may need to work harder to realize some gifts that you haven’t already mastered. Remember that you are eternal and unbreakable and a one of a kind gift of the creator. Listen to the still, small voice within. If it tells you that something is not what it seems, honor your inner wisdom. If it seems too good to be true, give it time, wait for it to reveal itself fully. If it feels right, but looks wrong, investigate further and ask is this perhaps a step in the right direction, but perhaps not what I ultimately desire? Don’t believe your eyes and your ears if your inner self tells you otherwise. Within you is the ability to know the truth, even though you don’t know how you know. Trust this; it is your most precious gift. Pay attention. You are a precious gift of the divine and every moment, every circumstance, every act is an opportunity to master the gift that is your life. Be thankful for that. It is only through living through the days and nights of our lives that we realize the innate power that we possess. Being yourself is the only opportunity you have to know God. If you try to be what someone else wants you to be, if you judge yourself for being different, you miss the point and you waste your time. You are exactly perfect in each moment, exactly as you are. Who you are right now is the foundation for who you will be tomorrow. You 14 don’t have to be the pinnacle of perfection in an ultimate sense. Build on what is genuine and you will 14 find fulfillment, joy and love. This article was written with

Fractal Colors by: Reverend Steve Waites Lets talk about color. Color imparts meanings in two primary ways, natural association, the colors of nature would be a good example, and psychological symbolism, which includes everything from traffic signs to the brand name marketing found in every store across the land! Symbolism and its associated use of color are big business. Multinational corporations know this, and spend enormous amounts of time and effort, perfecting the latest marketing image, which they hope, will elicit the required mood or emotional response. Often times, the judicious use of color can forge a powerful subjective link between our emotions and memories. For example, Green’s relationship with nature naturally conveys the inherent dynamic of growth and freshness, whereas Red usually signifies an action item!
Color is also a very important component when it comes to coloring fractals. Fractals may be thought of as being like really complex geometric shapes, consisting of lots of data! Much of the data needs to be discarded or at least modified so that the resulting image is more pleasing to the eye. This composition has pastel shades for the background. Psychologically, pastel shades are meant to have a calming effect. The pink may remind us of Valentines Day, which is all about love, and Yellow is often associated with Easter, and the apparently tenuous connection between baby chicks and Easter Eggs! As for the rest, well I'll just let you, the gentle reader decide... Minister Steve Waites became a UCM Minster on Sept 10th 1997 and graduated with his Bachelor of Theology Degree during the UCM conference in 2004. Steve is currently working on his Master of Theology with UCM and is doing his master’s thesis on fractals. He often tells me that fractal study has been like a mission from God for the last two years. For those interested in more fractal data please go to the UCM website and click on read our blog.

Continued from Page 7… Astrology of the Anti-Christ’s Birth Since we do not know the exact location of the birth, I cast a chart for Kia, on Saint Isabel in the Solomon Islands. Feb 5, 1962 at 11:11 AM, -11 time zone. 07S33, 155E26. It will give you something to work off of. The reason I chose this place was because it was the first large, inhabited piece of land that the eclipse touched. This location gives the Anti Christ an Aries Rising and an Aquarian stellium in the 10th house. And you thought you had a tough chart! Book of Revelations I went to a lecture at the San Francisco Astrological Society, www.sfastroloicalsociety.com. Astrologer Don Cerow of www.athenasweb.com talked on “The Astrology of the Book of Revelations”. This lecture was one of the most fascinating, groundbreaking talks on Astrology I have ever been to. His book on the subject will be available soon. Go to his website for more information. He talked about how the old prophets were predicting the birth and death of the Piscean Age in the Book of Revelations, and how the seven stars in “the scroll” that attaches the two fishes of Pisces are what the old prophets called the Seven Seals. The first star or seal is called Piscium Alpha and the last Piscium Omega. . Alpha and the Omega are mentioned only three times in the Bible, all in the Book of Revelations. To decipher their predictions you have to know the Divine Science of Astrology! The Age of Aquarius: The constellation of Pisces is 39 to 41 degrees in length. See this link for an example of measuring constellations: http://www.johnpratt.com/items/docs/sidereal/sidereal.html. It doesn’t fit into the neat 30 degree sections of a chart. Both ends of Pisces overlap the adjacent constellations: Aries on one end and Aquarius on the other. If you are wondering why the Ages go backwards from the Age of Aries, to the Age of Pisces, to the Age of Aquarius it is due to what is called, “Precession.” ***. As a sign precesses backwards, the degrees of that sign get smaller. Jesus was born at the end of the Age of Aries, 00 Aries 00. As Don pointed out, Jesus was called the Lamb of God and is often pictured holding a lamb. The ram is the symbol for Aries. As the last part of the constellation of Aries stopped touching the constellation of Pisces, Jesus Christ was born. The age of Aries the Ram was over. As Aries reduced by degree, it was like a ram reducing in age and becoming a lamb. Jesus was holding the symbol of the dying Age in his arms. (As for the birth of Jesus see one interpretation; Chart of Jesus in the footnotes.) According to Don’s work, in our time, the first part of Aquarius the water bearer will touch Pisces on February 11/12 of 2013. It will come in with the energy of youth, as all Ages do. Turmoil and major Earth shifts will occur as the 8th seal, represented by the star Piscium Omega, is opened. The beginning of the end of Pisces goes into play. The true confluence of Ages will begin. Two rivers of Energy will pound and intermingle. Aquarius, the water bearer, will bear the brunt of what was manifested during the watery Piscean age. And a new prophet’s Energy will be born. But the Age of Aquarius without a Piscean influence will not happen until 2597. *** Remember that the constellation of Pisces overlaps Aquarius. At some point due to precession the fixed star Fomalhaut**** will be activated. When it does, the time of healing will commence. Currently Fomalhaut is around 3 degrees of Pisces. Fomalhaut, the mouth of the fish, is the major star in the constellation of Pisces Austrinus. ***** This fish constellation was said to be the mother of the two Piscean fish. Aquarius is pouring what many think is “the 5th element of ether” into this fishes mouth. Since Aquarius is an air sign why would he be pouring water? If it is not water but the fifth element, maybe what Aquarius is doing is healing the wounds we have inflicted on our collective souls during the Piscean age? One can only hope that this is the case. Conclusion: Is the Anti Christ on our planet at this time? Are these the End Times? We are about to collide with the Aquarian Energy for the first time on Feb 12, 2013; even though we have felt the approaching Energy probably since the 1840’s. Kind of like riding white water rapids. Always starts off slow. Since we live in a polarity universe, when one side of the cart is tilled to an extreme, another equal but opposite force will be born to bring the world into balance…like the spirals of hurricanes…or weird images in the night skies over Norway. These are the ways and challenges of our plane of existence. The Great Age of Pisces is starting to end and the Great Age of Aquarius is manifesting. The way of life as we have known it will end. Yes, these are the end times…. the ending of an Age, and a way of life, but not the world. Is the Anti Christ here? I don’t know. What about the chart? Hundreds of people were born on that day, but few under the total eclipse. If it is not the Anti Christ’s chart, whom does it belong to? Probably it belongs to one of the minions of Chaos, born to bring us to the brink of destruction prior to the rebalancing. As Jesus and the people of his time had Tiberius, so will the Aquarian Age pathfinders and prophets have theirs. The last crusade is forming. The evil we face as I see it is our collective ignorance, intolerance and imbalance with nature. I do believe that there is a gathering of forces greater than our third dimensional human bodies can understand and I truly believe other dimensional beings are gathering for the show. Whether it is angels or aliens, contacts are on the increase. With our solar systems Sun coming out of a dormant solar flare period, the Earth shifting will be activated. Remember, think locally, love the land and all animals, know your neighbors and prepare. The government will not be there to give you help but your neighbors will be. The hope is in the image of Aquarius feeding the mother of the Piscean fish. Love is the answer.

We move backward through the zodiac 1 degree every 72 years.

Transform your life during the Spring Equinox by: Reverend Kala Ambrose Spring Equinox also known as the first day of Spring, has an official date of Saturday, March 20th 2010 at 1:32pm Eastern Time. The Spring Equinox marks a seasonal cycle of rebirth, where the knowledge cultivated from the Fall Equinox (a focused period of self-introspection and reflection) blossoms into creative action.
There are tremendous transformational powers available during the equinox and solstices during these three-day periods (the day before, equinox or solstice day and the day after). When we understand the transmutational properties available during these cycles, we can create great change in our lives. In order to know what we must transform, we must understand the past experiences reflected upon during the Fall Equinox, which then allows us to regenerate this information into wisdom and enhance who we are.
We can not fully understand what we have not experienced. Through the action of applied knowledge and experience, we develop the inner wisdom to answer such questions. By doing this, we honor the people and experiences who impacted us on our path, and in honoring these things, we make them sacred and of great personal value. Thus, on Spring Equinox, these carefully planted seeds from the Fall, can now bloom into new life for each us, and we can begin again. It is with this knowledge, that we can change our future. This is created by refocusing our attention on what we truly want to manifest and then actively creating the right atmosphere and attitude to bring it to fruition. Spring reminds us of our ability to be reborn and this is one example of the greatest gifts we were given here on earth, which is the abundant, creative and transforming energy found in nature. We can connect with nature to assist with our growth and development. Ancient schools taught how to observe the powerful events occuring in nature to connect with the energy here on earth (below) with the energy from the higher planes (above). This act brings forth the balance and growth of the As Above So Below teachings. These teachings included a series of rituals designed to assist students in connecting with each powerful and sacred festival of the year. Some of these rituals have been adjusted for modern life, (such as in ancient times, there were pools where students went to purify in the water each evening, rather than showering as we do today). Presented here are activities you can do on each of three days of the Equinox, to release the energy within you, connect with the energy of the Equinox and transform your life. The Equinox ritual consists of two parts, the outward celebration and the inner rebirth. The Eve of the Equinox: Reflect upon the seeds (thoughts and goals) you planted during the Fall Equinox and New Year. Consider the lessons and experiences of the past six months and decide what is hindering progress with your goals. Ask yourself — What important seeds of truth need to be revealed this spring, in order for me to truly know myself and step into my power-filled being? It’s time to awaken from your period of hibernation, inactivity and self-introspection and put these thoughts and plans into action! To awaken your higher self and activate your growth cycle, begin the Equinox ritual by taking a shower. As the water flows over your body, imagine all negative energy being removed and washed away from you. As you dry off, visualize white light around your body and say out loud, "All That Happens, Happens for Good – Divine Order is working through me now"!
Day One of the Equinox: It’s time for Spring Cleaning. Clean your house and remove clutter. As you clean each room and the items in it, do so with reverence and appreciation for the abundance in your life. Cover your home in loving energy as you clean, picturing you and your loved ones in each room, feeling happy, content, joyful and relaxed. By this evening, you are ready to smudge each room with white sage to purify and cleanse each room. End the day with the shower and ritual from the equinox eve. For more information on how to consciously change the energy in your home, read my article: 5 steps to consciously change the energy in your home Day Two of the Equinox:
This day is what people refer to as “Equinox Day”, It is the day to Celebrate Rebirth, Renewal and Abundance. It is a time to toast to plans of action and growth, ie, “a garden in bloom”! Celebrate with rituals including creating and sharing Equinox baskets with loved ones and friends. The day culminates with dinner to celebrate renewal, rebirth and the magic of the seasons and life and all the wonder it brings, along with sharing dreams being brought into fruition this year. This is a powerful day to put plans into action.
In ancient times, this was celebrated with an outward and inward celebration: •
Exoterically (outwardly) – people celebrated with egg hunts, (a symbol of the earth and rebirth), by giving and decorating with bunnies, (a universal symbol of fertility for both body – act of creation with birth and mind – turning thoughts into fruition) and by giving baskets, (a symbol of abundance). A special dinner with family and friends is also common to celebrate the return of Spring and renewal.
Esoterically (inwardly) - people took action on the seeds (goals) that they planted during the Fall Equinox. Spring presented the time and divine opportunity to step forward and create oneself anew with the tools of Gratitude, Abundance and Creativity.
Day Three of the Equinox: Celebrate the renewal of Spring and the Divine Feminine. This is the time to emerge from Introspection and Self Observation, into Spring Renewal and Focus on Action, Creation and Celebration. The Equinox is a time to focus on a balance of exoteric and esoteric, and introverted and extroverted events. Suggestions to activate your creative side and bring new perspective and balance include: Planting flowers in the garden, taking on a new creative project (preferably something new you have not done before), decorating your home; saying thank you to the Universe for the Abundance of OPPORTUNITY in your life, accepting new challenges in order to grow and step closer to your goals, embracing the future; and spending time with people in your life who will encourage you with your dreams and aspirations. The Spring Equinox is a great time to jump start your goals. Now is the time of Action! It has never made sense with the Julian calendar, that one would create new year resolutions in the dead of winter on January 1st. Your dreams were planted as seeds of thought in the Fall and now is time to tend to your garden and bring forth beautiful blooms of creativity. Decide Now what actions you will take immediately and where you wish to be and proceed from there. May the journey into the sacred garden grow in delight with each step!
