Are There Alien Monoliths on Mars and the Moon?

During an interview on C-span, Buzz Aldrin an Apollo 11 astronaut, has stated there are alien monoliths on a moon circling Mars, and one definitely on our own Moon. Why did Buzz Aldrin choose to expose it in 2010?

Several decades after the first known moon landings, a theory grew based on the odd behavior of the Apollo 11 astronauts, after they landed back on Earth. They rarely appeared in public, gave interviews, and in the case of Buzz Aldrin disappeared- except in once a year NASA organized public celebration of the lunar landing.

Buzz Aldrin later materialized in a remote cottage in Britain, a distraught recluse- whilst critics of the official NASA version of the lunar landings began to ask two important questions- Did you really go to the Moon, and if you did what did you really find there?

These questions have been asked thousands of times over the last four decades, and an increasing amount of people are starting to believe that we were not told everything that happened during the time Apollo 11 was on the moon.

In the 1980's the disappearance of NASA's Apollo 11 moon landing files, added further weight to this belief by a growing number of skeptics - who saw this as further proof that NASA were indeed covering something up. A fact that remains open today considering none of these files have ever been found- despite the fact NASA knew who first took the files.

Buzz Aldrin recently discussed the discovery of a monolith on the surface of Mar's moon,and then he surprisingly added that our moon too- also has an ancient structure. Adding further to the theory that the aging Apollo astronauts saw something during the Apollo 11 landing- they could never make public back on earth.

Today, he is a much respected expert on space, and. by exposing the truth that perhaps alien structures do exist in our own universe, he may hope we can jump start a faltering space program again, and discover who built these structures.

In the interview, Buzz Aldrin also stated that first contact could help us not only improve our limited knowledge of the universe, but may help us develop together with the 'aliens" who built these monoliths- a better future. A future which could help Earth, and solve some of todays pressing problems we currently face- which include an emerging energy and water crisis..

The unanswered questions which have dogged the official version of the Apollo 11 mission, may be slowly being answered by Buzz Aldrin. Who could be percieved as indirectly stating an alien structure does exist on the moon, and the Apollo 11 astronauts saw it during their mission..

Did the Apollo 11 astronauts encounter first contact with an alien race? And did they discover this monolith whilst on the moon, and only now are openly discussing something kept secret by NASA for decades? Perhaps a mystery which lays hidden in the missing NASA files, and the aging memories of a few remaining astronauts who landed on the moon.

What Was the Mysterious Object the Apollo 11 Crew Confirmed They Saw in Space?

After the Apollo 11 mission had returned to Earth. Astronauts on board the ship and officials at NASA mutually agreed to keep a secret that has only recently been revealed by a former astronaut on this mission- Apollo 11, the day before its historic moon landing, was being "followed" by a mysterious UFO.

Three days and over 300.000 kilometers into this historic space flight, Mission control received a cryptic message from the crew.

Apollo 11: Do you have any idea where the S-IVB is with respect to us?

Mission Control: 'Standby'

Requiring information on the S-IVB, the final rocket which had been released into space over 48 hours earlier- this itself may sound routine, but why were the astronauts so concerned with the position of a spent rocket- once attached to the spaceship?

Over Thirty- five years later, in a televised interview, Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin gave his answer. Apollo 11 that day was not alone in space. In fact something seemed to be travelling close to the ship.

There was something out there that was close enough to be observed, and what could it be?

A Unidentified flying object had been traveling alongside Apollo 11 for several hours, as the vessel continued on the journey to the moon. An object that remained close enough to be observed by all the astronauts, and they needed to confirm what it was.

The brightly lit, metallic bell shaped object puzzled the astronauts- who did not want to publicly announce whilst on the mission- a UFO was alongside them. So they agreed to send a cryptic message to mission control.

NASA knew very little about the object reported by the Apollo 11 crew, it was obviously an unidentified flying object (UFO).
(Dr David Baker, a senior Apollo 11 scientist, in a recent interview on the incident.)

The crew waited for NASA's reply, continuing the flight and keeping an eye on the object flying near them. Mission control replied, a few moments later, unaware of what was going on in space above them.

Mission Control: "Apollo 11, Houston. The S-IVB is about 6.000 nautical miles from you now, over"

The astronauts response?

We really did not think we were looking at an object that far away, so the crew decided after a few hours of watching it, we would go to sleep and not talk about it anymore until we came back to debriefing.

(Buzz Aldrin- The second man on the Moon)

When the spacemen did return to Earth, they discussed in the incident behind closed doors in debriefing. NASA officials afraid that if this news was made public- it could result in the ridicule of the astronauts who witnessed the unidentified flying object, agreed it should remain a secret. A secret until, four decades after the historic Moon landing took place.

What was the strange object that followed the Apollo 11? A question that still haunts the memories of the crew aboard the ship, and the NASA officials who heard the news- once the astronauts returned to Earth.

13 Interesting Facts About Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th is not just another day to the approximately 7-9 out of every 100 people around the world that are unfortunate enough to suffer from a condition called paraskevidekatriaphobia: the fear of Friday the 13th. Superstitions of this unlucky day go back to the beginnings of documented time, and even though there is very little evidence to support that there are any genuine threats awaiting us all during this frightful time, there are indeed some interesting facts surrounding the myth.

So I present to you, 13 Interesting Facts about Friday the 13th.

1. There were 13 people including Jesus at the Last Supper. The 13th person to arrive was Judas. Judas was the Apostle that went on to betray Jesus, and although it is subject to interpretation; many Christians believe that Jesus was Crucified on a Friday.

2. Butch Cassidy, the notorious American train and bank robber was born on Friday, April 13th, 1866.

3. Fidel Castro was born on Friday, August 13th, 1926.

4. As many as 21 million Americans will change their behavior on Friday the 13th resulting in millions of lost dollars to the economy, time lost at work, etc.

5. During the filming of "Friday the 13th," The actress Laurie Bartram, (Brenda in the movie) had a cat that was regrettably killed by roach poison after being left in the attendance of a crew member.

6. Daredevil and stuntman, Sam Patch died on Friday, November 13th, 1829 after attempting a 125-foot jump into the Genesee River.

7. An earthquake occurred in Turkey, killing 2,000 people on Friday, March 13th, 1992.

8. The Knights Templar were a religious military order from Jerusalem in 1118 C.E. They were sworn to protect the Christian Pilgrims during the Crusades, but because of their great power and wealth, King Philip became threatened and had them all arrested, tortured and executed... all on Friday, October the 13th, 1307.

9. According to Legend, the British government sought to disprove the myths surrounding Friday the 13th, so they commissioned a ship called the H.M.S. Friday and embarked it on its first mission; on Friday the 13th.... and it was never seen again.

10. Tupac Shakur was killed in Las Vegas on Friday the 13th.

11. Hubert H. Humphrey, the 38th Vice President of the United States died on Friday, January 13th, 1978.

12. On July 13, 1951, flood-waters crested in parts of Kansas during the "Great Flood" that ravaged more than 2,000,000 acres of land and caused over three-quarters of a billion dollars in damage.

13. On April 13, 2029, astronomers have predicted that an asteroid, (2004 MN4), will come in very close proximity to the earth... possibly close enough to cause a great catastrophe to our planet.

Now if you are wondering what I really believe about this popular urban legend, let me tell you. I believe that it is just a myth. I gave you a list of 13 tragic events surrounding Friday the 13th. I could just as easily produce such a list about any other date. I could also produce a list of all the wonderful things that have happened on this date. I think that what we have here is a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you think bad things will happen, they probably will. If you don't go to work due to the fact that you are worried about something bad happening, and you lose your job, you can't blame it on the date... it is because you didn't go to work. So keep your chin up, try not to stress about it, and the next time a Friday the 13th rolls around; try to have yourself a wonderful, happy and productive day!

How Do You Find 2012 Polar Shift Map?

It's hard to know what will happen if the Earth undergoes a polar shifting. This is why a 2012 Polar Shift Map has been created, but there is multiple ideas of how it could take place. This is why many have been created, with none really being correct or wrong. It's going to be hard to know what will happen until the polar reversal actually or even takes place.

If the Earth goes through an abrupt polar shift, it would create complete chaos and devastation. This is why a 2012 Polar Shift Map has been designed and in so many varieties. People will need to have an idea of where to go if the type of devastation occurs.

If you want to look for a 2012 Polar Shift Map, you should search online. One place is called ZetaTalk, which is a website of Nancy Lieder's vision and version of what she thinks the Earth will be like. She claims to know the Zetas on Earth, who are technologically advanced aliens. They knew how the Earth would be shifted and how the world will end.

Another place to look for a map is on TopoZone, which provides a variety of kinds of maps. It will include multiple versions of the 2012 polar shift. GreatDreams also provides a subcategory on its website of different maps, including how the earth could change because of earthquakes or shifts. There are other websites as well, ones that also include 2012 Doomsday possibilities.

It's interesting to look at the different possibilities of how the map could shift. For one, Antarctica could end up by the equator, and India could be in the South Pole. Places that were once hot could end up in a cold region and vice versa. Low-lying places could suddenly be submerged by water, and places that were submerged could turn into land.

The Earth has undergone polar shifting before, as there's evidence to pack up this claim. However, experts say this happens gradually and usually between 1,000 and 5,000 years. Obviously, this doesn't happen in anyone's lifetime.

The issue is if the Earth goes through an abrupt magnetic polar reversal, which would happen if a heavenly body collided with the Earth. The gravitational pull of the planet would cause a shifting. NASA says this isn't possible, but others believe Planet X could cause such a disturbance. They believe it will take place on December 21, 2012.

The only possible idea a person can get to understand this time period is through a 2012 polar shift map. For one, you could see which place would be safe to stay. One the map there are areas where a person could travel. It is suggested you wouldn't want to be in a place or country that is near polar regions, as this is where the north and south poles will move. Also, if you read 2012 Contact, it will give you different ideas of how to survive the possible calamity. It could save your life.

Ancient Mysteries of the Seven Dimensions

"The human mind is not capable of grasping the Universe. We are like a little child entering a huge library. The walls are covered to the ceilings with books in many different tongues. The child knows that someone must have written these books. It does not know who or how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. But the child notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books - a mysterious order which it does not comprehend, but only dimly suspects." --- Albert Einstein

Do you ever wonder about this "mysterious order" of creation and the Universe? According to my dictionary a MYSTERY is something not understood or beyond understanding; whatever resists or defies explanation; profound, inexplicable, or has a secretive quality; and/ or a religious truth that one can know only by revelation and cannot fully understand.

Is Humankind's identity a mystery? How can you really know who you are if you don't know where you came from? It is clear from archeological evidence that there are many documented mysteries in our ancient past, and that there are clues to that past around the world in the form of sunken cities, artwork and cryptic hieroglyphics, ancient structures (pyramids, etc.). It is also clear from archeological findings that humankind has not progressed in a steady upward linear progression - as science and achievements of long-lost civilizations had advanced technologies that cannot be replicated - even by the science of today.

Has modern science disproved human evolution? In 2006, genetic researchers at the University of California at Santa Cruz discovered an area of the genome they called HAR1 that appears to be unique to humans. Scientists believe the HAR1 gene plays a critical role in the advanced development of the human brain, and is a key element that sets us apart from other animals. But where did it come from? Did humans develop this distinct gene naturally through evolution? Or did it land here from another planet?

The common myth or idea that the Origins of humankind are from the stars is widespread in many ancient cultures to include the ancient Egyptians, the Mayans, the Aztecs, and the Indians. Francis Crick, the British scientist who helped discover the structure of DNA, believed that human genes could not have evolved by chance. Crick didn't feel in that period of roughly 600 million years, from the formation of the planet down to the time when the planet could first support life, there was enough time for DNA to evolve by accident. It's an enormously complicated molecule (History Channel transcript).

Crick gave this analogy: You would be more likely to assemble a fully functioning and flying jumbo jet by passing a hurricane through a junkyard than you would be to assemble the DNA molecule by chance in, any kind of primeval soup in five or six hundred million years. It's just not possible (Ancient Aliens - The Visitors, HISTP, aired on Saturday, May 01, 2010 (5/1/2010) at 07:00 PM).

All of the major religions of the world have documented that God, Gods, and/ or angels came to earth to create humans. Scientists are now speculating that extraterrestrials and/ or ancient astronauts may have come to earth from outer space to seed the human civilization.

Following are what I believe to be the origins of ancient knowledge and ageless wisdom that have been passed down to us by our ancestors through what some call the 7 Rays of Light and what I call the 7 Dimensions. Please see my article entitled, "Contemplating a 7 Dimension Theory of Everything," that lays the ground work for this article.

Although this is a collaboration of information taken from various historical, biblical (Jewish and Christian), Egyptian, Greek, Hindu, and Islamic literature, such as the Bible, the Quran, the Dead Sea Scrolls, many apocryphal books, Enoch 1, 2, 3, Jasher, Jubilees, Baruch, Solomon, the book of giants, the pyramid texts, the Egyptian book of the dead, --- I will present this as a MYTH or an unverifiable legendary narrative that presents part of the beliefs of a people - especially those dealing with their gods and heroes.

I have made every attempt to make this article accurate and complete. I would however, like to apologize in advance for offending anyone's religious sensitivities, as this is a work in progress that is very, very far from perfect. With the above disclaimer to having and/ or knowing the absolute truth, I would like to present to you a mythical 7 - Part outline of the 7 Dimensions.

1. The Seven Dimensions of God and Creation

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1). By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible (Hebrews 11:3). If you can believe that God created the world in 7 Days (Genesis 1:1 to 2:3) - then you may not have any problems believing the rest of this 7 Dimension story. Note: Some bible scholars interpret one biblical day as 1000 years.

Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, Let there be light," and there was light - and God saw that the light was good (Genesis 1:2,3). It's interesting to note that one of the first things that God created was light. The Bible proclaims that: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5).

The scientific inherent physical laws of the universe indicate that there are 7 electromagnetic energies, and 7 colors in the visible light spectrum - that when randomly mixed make up all colors, and when equally contained make up the white light. In Physics, the orbits of the electrons, from the simplest Hydrogen to the most complex Uranium, revolve in 7 electronic orbits. In Chemistry, the Periodic Table consists of 105 elements which fall into 7 grades based on the atomic structure.

Seven Dimensional Time and Space

Time itself is based on our 7 day weekly calendar derived from the 7 days of creation. Space, our earthly physical space is divided up into 7 continents, 7 oceans, and 7 seas. According to Judaism tradition, 7 is a highly spiritual number representing godliness and completeness and there are 7 heavens, 7 days of passover, Seven days of purification, and the 7 branched candelabrum or menorah. In Islamic tradition, there are also 7 heavens, 7 fires in hell, and 7 doors to hell.

7 Heavens

The First Heaven: Shamayim or Shamain
The Second Heaven: Raquia or Raqia
The Third Heaven: Sagun or Shehaquim
The Fourth Heaven: Machanon or Machen
The Fifth Heaven: Mathey or Machon
The Sixth Heaven: Zebul
The Seventh Heaven: Araboth

7 Dimensional Ancient Solar System

Prior to the invention of the telescope, man could only look up into the sky with the naked eye and only observe 7 heavenly bodies. The 7 days of creation were given names for the 7 days of the week after the below 7 Classical Planets: Sun (Sunday), Moon (Monday), Mars (Tuesday), Mercury (Wednesday), Jupiter (Thursday), Venus (Friday), Saturn (Saturday) - The 7 Rings of Saturn. Esoteric science proclaims that there are 7 streams of energy, vibrations, or 7 Light Rays that interact at every conceivable frequency - that created the Stars, Solar systems, Galaxies, and Universes that exist.

The 7 brightest stars of the Pleiades are named for the 7 Sisters of Greek mythology: Sterope, Merope, Electra, Maia, Taygete, Celaeno, and Alcyone. The beautiful group of stars known as the Pleiades is mentioned three times in Scripture. Job 9:8-9 and Amos 5:8 explain their origin, stating that the Creator 'stretches out the heavens' and is the Master of the Pleiades. Job 38:31-32 further declares that only the Lord can 'bind the beautiful Pleiades' and bring them forth in their season.

The number 7 is also linked to the moon having four phases that it goes through, with each phase lasting roughly 7 days.

7 Stars of the Big Dipper

The Big Dipper is a collection of 7 stars that has been recognized as a distinct grouping in many cultures from time immemorial. The component stars are the 7 brightest of the formal constellation Ursa Major and are named: Alkaid, Mizar, Alioth, Megrez, Dubhe, Merak, and Phecda.

7 Dimensional Earth

Along with having 7 Continents, 7 Oceans, and the 7 seas, it is commonly accepted that there are 7 major chakras (Energy Centers) on earth - one on each continent. The cardinal 7 chakras are:

1st chakra - Mt. Shasta, California
2nd chakra - Lake Titicaca, South America
3rd chakra - Uluru-Katatjuta, Australia
4th chakra - Glastonbury-Shaftesbury, England
5th chakra - Great Pyramid-Mt. of Olives
6th chakra - Kuh-e Malek Siah, Iran
7th chakra - Mt. Kailas, Tibet.

2. The Seven Archangels

Traditionally, there are 7 Archangels. The letter of Jude 1:14-15, in the New Testament makes reference to the first Book of Enoch that names the 7 as: 1. Michael, 2. Gabriel, 3. Raphael, 4. Uriel, 5. Raquel, 6. Zerachiel, and 7. Remiel. Legend has it that these 7 Archangels stood in the presence of God Almighty and reflected the 7 Rays of Light from God's throne in Heaven to the Universe.

The 7 Rays of Life

Like our Sun, which irradiates rays of visible light all over our Solar system, there is a spiritual Sun (Solar Logos) which is a source of the 7 rays of spiritual light. These rays are the 7 emanations from the "7 Spirits before the Throne of God". Their emanations come from the monadic level of awareness. In a certain sense, these 7 great and living Energies are, in their totality, the etheric vehicle of the planetary Logos:
Ray 1: Will or Power,¨Ray 2: Love and Wisdom,¨Ray 3: Active Intelligence or Adaptability,¨Ray 4: Harmony, Beauty, and Art,¨Ray 5: Concrete Knowledge and Science,¨Ray 6: Devotion or Idealism,¨Ray 7: Ceremonial Order

The Fallen Angels (Nephilim)

Prior to the flood of Noah's day, there is a very brief excerpt about the Fallen Angels in Genesis 6:1-4. "When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose,....The Nephilim were on earth in those days - and also afterward - when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them." These angels taught man sciences which were forbidden by God such as the magic in herbs, reading the stars, divination and sorcery. Enoch goes on to say: "...but they chose husbands and wives from among the humans and led greatly debauched lives, neglecting their heavenly duties..."

Ancient Egypt

"The evil happening in those days focused heavily in the land of Egypt, for this place became the center for the fallen angels and many of the deeds they did. These fallen angels, "became known as the builders of the megalithic pyramids. The leaders, who were the angelic fathers of these builders, knew the secrets of the stars and waited for the time when the morning star moved directly north of the Earth." At this time, the weight of the Earth was affected and these builders built nine great pyramids in a short time. To the men of the Earth, these structures appeared as if they were reaching to the heavens. Along with the monsters made from the miscegenation of animals, the fallen angels took the form of half-animal, half-man beasts, and with the assistance of their giant prodigy, forced mankind to worship them as gods," (The Last Days of Noah).

The Nephilim are also mentioned again in Numbers 13:32-33, "And they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored. They said, "The land we explored (Canaan) devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are of great size. We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them."

7 Nephilim Nations of Giants (Fallen Angel - Offspring)

Deuteronomy 7:1, 2 and Acts. 13:19 - refers to God's command to the Israelites to exterminate the 7 Nephilim tribes living in the land of Canaan: "When the LORD your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations-the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites, 7 nations larger and stronger than you. . . then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy."

The apostle Paul confirmed this extermination: "When he (God) overthrew 7 nations in Canaan and gave their land to his people as their inheritance," (Acts 13:19).

The Nephilim were the origin of idolatry and polytheism. Polytheism is the belief in multiple deities, called gods or goddesses, or both that can be found in Greek, Roman, and Hindu mythology along with the worship of demigods or half-god, human-god hybrid mythological figures whose one parent was a god and whose other parent was human such as the Greek Gods': Zeus, and Apollyon.

It is interesting to note that Apollyon is also mentioned by the apostle John as the king of the fallen angels:
"And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon." (Revelation 9:11).

7 Rays of Fire

In ancient Greek mythology, Zeus takes the bull-form known as Taurus in order to win Europa. Taurus is also associated with Aphrodite and other goddesses, as well as Pan and Dionysus. The face of Taurus "gleams with the 7 rays of fire".

3. The Rainbow's Seven Rays of Light

God also sent His 7 Rays of Light (The Rainbow) after the flood as a sign:
"And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth" (Genesis 9:12-16). These 7 Rays of Light are also referred to as the 7 Archangels. These 7 great streams of energy represent each and every vibration in space, nature, and form, and they permeate all beings, objects, and all events in the manifestation of reality.

Enoch - the 7th Generation from Adam (Jude 1:14)

Legend has it that the fallen angels (Nephilim) knew that their behavior would not be tolerated by God Almighty, so they appealed to Enoch (the only righteous man on earth at the time) to speak to God on their behalf. The Bible reports in Genesis 5:24, that Enoch walked with God; then he was no more, because God took him away. This may have been the time when Enoch went to plead their case before God. The fallen angels behavior angered God greatly and he banished the "fallen". Sadly these angels were not suited to this job and instead of playing a positive role they began to teach man sciences that God had deemed to be forbidden. These subjects included astrology, divination, herb craft and magic.

The 7 Laws of Noah

It has been suggested that one of the main reasons for the great flood, was not only to punish man, but to cleanse the earth of the half-bred creatures created from the union of the fallen angels and humans. According to the Talmud, God gave Noah a set of 7 moral imperatives as a binding set of laws for all mankind - more than 1000 years before God gave Moses the Ten Commandments. According to Judaism any non-Jew who lives according to these laws is regarded as a Righteous Gentile and is assured of a place in heaven. The 7 laws listed by the Talmud are:

Prohibition of Idolatry: You shall not have any idols before God.
Prohibition of Murder: You shall not murder.
Prohibition of Theft: You shall not steal.
Prohibition of immorality: You shall not commit any of a series of prohibitions,
Prohibition of Blasphemy: You shall not blaspheme God's name, and
Dietary Law: Do not eat flesh taken from an animal while it is still alive.
Requirement to have just Laws: Set up a governing body of law (eg Courts).

The Noahide Laws comprise the six laws which were given to Adam in the Garden of Eden according to the Talmud's interpretation of Gen. 2:16 and a 7 th one, which was added after the Flood of Noah (prior to 2500 B.C.). Later at the Revelation of Sinai the 7 Laws of Noah were regiven to Moses (1500 B.C.) with theTen Commandments, which are part of, and not separate from the 7 Laws of Noah.

4. Alchemy and the Seven Classical Planets

Early alchemists Isis and Zosimus report that alchemical knowledge came from fallen angels attracted to human women, and the early Christian church fathers believed them and claimed the angels had sinned against the orders of god. The Egyptian God Thoth - the god of wisdom, however is credited with the creation of alchemy. He was believed to have invented the sacred art of writing and the concepts of justice. He taught mankind astronomy, architecture, geometry, medicine and religion. and he was the carrier of Divine messages and recorded all human deeds. The word alchemy is derived from the Greek for "The Egyptian Art," or the "Wisdom of Egypt."

The Chaldeans who existed over 7 thousand years ago and who lived in the Mesopotamian city of Babylon were alchemists who used this knowledge and the wisdom filtered down through time from the ancient Egyptian gods. They believed - 'As it is above, so it is below,' and that everything was connected to everything and based the existence of time on the movement of the 7 Classical Planets. They were the first to develop the science of astrology - by observing the order of the planets in our solar system to develop: our 12-month solar calendar; the 12 signs of the zodiac; the two 12 hour divisions of night and day; and the 28-day Lunar cycle each with it's own full Moon.

Ancient Alchemy was practiced around the world: Egyptian alchemy (5000 BC - 400 BC), beginning of alchemy; Indian alchemy (1200 BC - Present), Greek alchemy (332 BC - 642 AD), Chinese alchemy (142 AD), Islamic alchemy (700 - 1400), and European alchemy (1300 - Present).

The 7 Babylonian Gods

The Chaldeans associated the 7 classical planets with the names of their 7 Babylonian gods: Moon Nanna, Jupiter Marduk, Venus Ishtar, Saturn Ninib, Mercury Nebo, Mars Nergal, Sun Shamash. The Greeks and the Romans subsequently adopted this system and replaced the Babylonians gods with their own.

Moses was of the race of the Chaldeans. The Chaldean Mithra had his 7 Rays, and Moses his 7 Days. The Chaldeans believed in the 7 Spheres of the 7 Planets of which the sun is the center, and that from the Sun came fire and spirit. This was the astronomical religion of the Chaldeans, Jews, Persians, Syrians, Phoenicians and Egyptians." There was also the 7 Rays of Dionysus, presiding over the orbits of the 7 planets. The 7 Rays are found also in the Chaldean mystery of the "the God of the 7 Rays, who held the 7 Stars in his hand, through whom (as Chaldaeans supposed) the souls were raised",. Prior to the Christian era, this deity was known as Iao (the first birth) or Sabaoth (the Sun), and later described as "Christos of the Resurrection of Souls."

The Number 7 and Egyptian, Sumerian, Greek, Ireland (Mythology)

The number 7 was apparently the Egyptian symbol of such ideas as perfection, effectiveness, and completeness. Sumerian mythology documents that there were 7 gods in the underworld and 7 gods of destiny. In Greek mythology, there are 7 strings on Apollo's lyre, one for each of the 7 musical notes. Ancient Ireland mythology indicates that goddess Medb had 7 sons who brought space and time together, and became the 7 days of the week. These 7 sons were called the 7 Maines.

5. The Seven Vowels of Ancient Greece

The ancient Greeks had 7 vowels in their alphabet - not five. Their grammarians believed the 7 vowels contained pnuema (spirit) or the "breath of life" because the sound of each vowel could be sustained as long as one had breath in his lungs. There are three types of vowels: long (H and W), dual (A, I, and Y), and short (E and O). In the Book of Revelation, there is some evidence that the 7 Greek vowels were viewed as the "7 Spirits-of-God." The Greeks, who recorded the number of the root-races in their temples by these 7 vowels. There is an esoteric mythological tradition that links these 7 vowels to the 7 planets of astrology and the "gods" that rule them along with invocations of planets used in Egyptian temples.

Ancient World Empires run from Cities on 7 Hills

The ancients symbolically looked on the various capitals of the world - with 7 Hills as being the centers of divine sovereignty on this earth. It was common custom in the centuries before Christ for people in the Roman world to refer to the City of Rome itself as the 'City of 7 Hills. The City of Jerusalem, as it existed in the time of Christ Jesus, was reckoned to be the 'City of 7 Hills'. Babylon on the Euphrates (which became the capital of the world in the time of Nebuchadnezzar in the sixth century B.C.) was called the '7 Hilled City'. The Roman Emperor Constantine wanted to build a 'new Rome' in the eastern part of the Roman Empire and he selected a spot on the Bosphorus called Byzantium, because it was a small village also located on '7 Hills'. This made 'New Rome' as a City of 7 Hills. The apostle John, who, wrote the Book of Revelation also mentions that the last world capital would be, "Mystery Babylon, " and that it would have "7 mountains" (Revelation 17:9).

6. The Seven Ancient Wonders of the World

It is interesting to note that some of these 7 Ancient Wonders of the world are directly related to Greek gods (or some would say the fallen angels).

1. Statue of Zeus at Olympia (Greek god), 2. Colossus of Rhodes (statue of Helios the Greek god), 3.Temple of Artemis (Dianna the Greek god), 4.Tomb of Mausolus (World Leader of Persia), 5.Lighthouse of Alexandria, 6. Hanging Gardens of Babylon, 7. Great Pyramid of Giza.

7 Lucky Gods of Ancient - India, China, and Japan

The Shichifukujin are an eclectic group of 7 deities from India, China, and Japan. Only one is native to Japan (Ebisu). Three are from the Hindu-Buddhist pantheon of India (Daikokuten, Bishamonten, & Benzaiten) and three from Chinese Taoist-Buddhist traditions (Hotei, Jurojin, & Fukurokuju).

The mystery of number 7 has enraptured the Japanese as well. Ancient Japan was founded around 7 districts. In Japanese folklore, there are 7 Buddhist treasures and 7 deities of good luck mentioned above. Japanese Buddhists believe people are reincarnated only 7 times, and 7 weeks of mourning are prescribed following death. The list goes on and on -- the 7 ups and eight downs of life, the 7 autumn flowers, the 7 spring herbs, the 7 types of red pepper, the 7 transformations, and the popular 7-5-3 festival held each November for children. Girls (age 7) are welcomed into womanhood and allowed to wear the obi (decorative sash worn with kimono). Their 7 virtues are candor, fortune, amiability, magnanimity, popularity, longevity, and dignity.

7. King Solomon's Temple and the Seven Books of Wisdom

King Solomon was the ruler of a kingdom in 967 B.C.E. that extended from the Euphrates River in the north to Egypt in the south. The Bible describes Solomon as the son of David and credits him as the builder of the First Temple in Jerusalem - which took 7 years to build. He is portrayed as great in wisdom, and is credited with having 7 hundred wives and authoring the following 7 Books of Wisdom: Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, Ecclesiasticus, and the Book of Wisdom. He was also known for his power and wealth, but ultimately as a king, his sin including idolatry, turned him away from God and lead his kingdom to be torn in two during the reign of his son Rehoboam.

It is believed that King Solomon's temple contained the golden alter of incense and the gold-covered ark of the covenant. This ark contained the gold jar of manna, Aaron's staff that had budded, and the stone tablets of the covenant (Hebrews 9:4-5), and it is believed that Solomon collected and stored the known ancient wisdom of the world.


I could go on to discuss in detail the Bible's use of the number seven 424 times. Although I will mention the 7 dimensions of the book of Revelation, I will save the "7 Dimensional God" for a future article:

The Seven Dimensions of the Book of Revelation

There are the 7 Spirits of God (Rev. 1:4), 7 Lamps (Rev.4:5), 7 Seals (Rev. 5:1), 7 Horns (Rev. 5:6), 7 Eyes (Rev. 5:6), 7 Trumpets (Rev. 8:2), 7 Angels (Rev. 8:6), 7 Thunders (Rev. 10:3,4), 7 Angels (Rev.10:7), 7 Thousand People (Rev.11:13), Red Dragon with The Beast with 7 Heads (Rev.12:3), 7 Crowns (Rev. 12:3), 7 Last Plagues (Rev.15:1), 7 Golden Bowls (Rev.15:7), 7 Hills (Rev.17:9), and the 7 Kings (Rev.17:10).

The questions, however still remain: Is there an intelligent, divine design or mysterious order to the Universe or do we just live in a chaotic, purposeless, and meaningless world?

What are the origins of humans? Did extraterrestrials, ancient astronauts, and or angels, gods, goddesses, or God come to earth from outer space to seed the human civilization. Surprisingly, the Bible itself gives us direct answers:

"By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible," (Hebrews 11:3)

"All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth," (Hebrews 11:13).

So here we have it. the extraterrestrial/ ancient astronaut "God" created the Universe and humans by faith, and all those that live by faith in His righteousness are aliens on earth looking to return home.

This article was not written and should not be viewed or considered to be a formal scientific or theological treatise on ancient civilizations, spirituality and/ or religion. It is merely a simplistic introduction to these topics to reveal how critical they are to the human experience with the hope of assisting individuals to reassess their values, and reexamine their priorities to redefine what is really important in their lives.

My intent is not to persuade, influence, convince, or convert anyone to my personal beliefs. My goal is to help others to clarify and identify where they presently stand at this point in time, so that they can consider charting a course to get from where they are to where they desire to be someday. After all, you cannot make flight reservations if you don't know what airport you will be departing from.

2012 Predictions and Prophecies - A Critical Look at Mayan Predictions and 2012 Skeptics

A gentleman in my online community emailed me, asking for my comments on a skeptic's view of some 2012 predictions and prophecies. Sometimes I agree with the skeptics, other times I don't; it all depends on the details of the claims being made. For example, if someone predicted that a comet was going to strike this planet on December 21, 2012 (or, for that matter, anytime in the foreseeable future), I'd be a skeptic, too.

I find that both proponents and skeptics of the idea that something important and unique will happen around December 21, 2012 are guilty of careless claims and logic as well as inadequate research.

For example, the author of the online article on Mayan predictions at The Skeptic's Dictionary ( that I was asked to comment on stated that the Mayan calendar is not predictive, and I agree with him. But that's not what's interesting or important about the Mayan calendar anyway.

It's important to realize that when a prediction about something is made, most people just sit on their behinds waiting for that something to happen. Or else they may use that knowledge to try to get an edge on the stock market or some other such thing--which is not what 2012 is about!

What it is about is personal growth and spiritual evolution, and we all know that doesn't come so easy. So the fact that nobody knows exactly what will happen in 2012 is brilliant (not even the Mayan elders know)--because not knowing actually serves a useful (and divine) purpose. (So... please read all 2012 predictions and prophecies with inner discernment, the discernment of your higher self.)

However, by delving into the details of the exact nature of the 2012 alignment (that will occur between the Milky Way's equatorial axis and a particular axis of the Earth), I discovered some valuable guiding information that promises a positive outcome for humanity--backed by solid science conducted at astronomical institutes, no less. Furthermore, this complicated astronomy can be simplified and pictures can be drawn so even those who flunked high school science can understand that there will be a "cross" in the heavens on December 21, 2012 and that this cross represents a "crossroads" in our spiritual direction and evolution. This cross in the sky (where the Earth points towards galactic light) happens once every roughly 26,000 years.

The details of this alignment (and its implications) cannot be adequately expressed in a short article, that's why I wrote a couple chapters in an e-book on this topic. It's important to examine the details, not ignore or gloss over them. I suppose that just like the rest of us 2012 skeptics lead busy lives and can't be bothered to do their due research. I also suspect their minds are way too set to discover anything new of any significance.

The other idea this skeptic tries to disprove is Guatemalan anthropologist Carlos Barrios's claim that the Mayans were prophets who used their calendar to predict the coming of Cortez's ships in 1519. According to Barrios, writes the skeptic, Easter Sunday, April 21, 1519 was a day that marked a return of the Mayan's ancestors, "coming like butterflies" on the sea, and the natives were "waiting and watching to see how it would go." (The skeptic makes fun of Barrios's reference to butterflies.)

But I doubt it was the butterfly effect of Cortez's ships that mesmerized the natives; rather, it was the crosses on their ships.

That's because the Mayans were already familiar with the symbol of the cross (sometimes called the "solar cross"). The cross in the heavens is what their long count calendar was based on. (Remember that the Mayans were obsessed with their calendars.) The cross symbolized a particular alignment of our earth and solar system with respect to the Milky Way galaxy.

On yet another level, the cross symbolized a new phase in their future. The Mayans must have been aware that they were going into a new phase of their development and evolution (a "crossroad") that they had all agreed to on the inner, subconscious level (and the ancestors they were awaiting were those back from the days of Atlantis). So of course they'd be curious about what that future would bring. That's why they almost just submitted themselves to the inevitable.

And now the alignment that happens in 2012 has a unique meaning for the future of the people on this planet.

So, please read about 2012 predictions and prophecies with inner discernment, remember that the details are critical, and strive to strengthen your own inner discernment by reconnecting and integrating with your higher self. Merging with your higher self is the key to awakening, to higher consciousness and to 2012.

Why Children With Autism Refuse to Make Eye Contact - Understanding Autism - A Clairvoyant's View


This information is offered for educational purposes only and is not intended to serve as medical advice. The information provided should not be used for diagnosing or treating a health problem or disease. It is not a substitute for professional care. If your child, teen, or you have any health concerns, please consult your health care provider. Names and other identifying facts have been changed. Any similarity to person's living or dead is purely coincidental


The eyes are "the windows into the soul." When an adult avoids making eye contact, at that moment, he or she is often judged as "dishonest." An autistic child is different only in that his or her dishonesty is frequent and extreme.

Baby psychology and parent psychology are interconnected. The subconscious dimension is the truer and most influential dimension of our humanness. There is no understanding autism and the true causes of autism without understanding this key fact.

The autistic children that I have clairvoyantly read and reported about usually had a variety of reasons for not making eye contact with the people around them. The most basic reason was that they were being defiant. They were being dishonest and knew they were being defiant and did not want "the outside world" to see what they were truly thinking and feeling.

One might call this condition a "psychological disability," but, in truth, it was a subconscious and conscious, "willful defiance" of how the autistic children knew they should be. Many autistic children, if not all, felt guilty about their "autistic behaviors."

The children with autism whom I observed consciously knew that much of their behavior was wrong. Refusing to make eye contact was one of several favorite behaviors many opted to indulge-in.

Not to make eye contact was usually a conscious decision, unlike not speaking, which was mainly a subconsciously decided and a subconsciously orchestrated abnormality. Those mute children with autism consciously believed that they did not have the ability to speak. Their "inability" seemed due to totally subconscious choices.

The children with autism in my studies knew they had the ability to look into the eyes of another person and make eye contact. It was often difficult and emotionally painful and most did not understand why it was so difficult. Nonetheless, it was a conscious choice that they knew they were making.

Here are some experiences of the children and teens with autism who I clairvoyantly studied:

o "Oliver" would eye check a teacher when he sensed there might be a "perceived reward." He would not eye check other children because he thought if he did so there was something being said by each child during that eye contact. He did not want that kind of intimacy and believed that he could get away with more if he did not make eye contact.

o "Andria" was in much mental and emotional pain and felt isolated. She was trying to push through her resistance to making eye contact. However, that resistance was of her own subconscious making, nevertheless, she was consciously striving to push through and make eye contact when asked to do so. She wanted to cooperate, but it was extremely distressing for her.

o A teenager, "David," increasingly determined that he would not make eye contact. He certainly could because I saw him deliberately choosing not to do it. He did not want his parents and caretakers to see how he felt about them. He thought his life would be in jeopardy if they knew what he was thinking and feeling. In addition, he was hoping his perceptions about his parents were wrong, but he was right. What he was seeing about his parents' deepest thoughts and feelings about him were true as far as I could see.

o It was a tremendous emotional strain for a teenage girl to interact and make eye contact. It was also a physical strain because of her strong resistance to communicating being and present to her circumstances. When she attempted those things it became overwhelming, her skin actually felt raw and she experienced an intense physical pressure. The experience became a struggle between her conscious self and wanting to please her parents and caretakers, and her stronger subconscious decision not to be present to her situations.

o "Tommy" knew that he should make eye contact so he pretended to do that by not focusing his eyes and not actually looking at people.

Choices to avoid eye contact are essentially choices not to be honest, not to reach out, not to communicate, and not to give. They are selfish reactions. They are willful choices that the child does not have to make.

Making eye contact would be a great help to the autistic child's mental and emotional life and his or her entire inner world. When the child refuses to do this, he or she feels isolated with little sense of reality. If children with autism would make consistent choices to make eye contact, those choices could be the beginning of a path out of their reaction, isolation, and pain. []

2012 End of World - Safest Places to Hide

Where are you going to go when the 2012 end of world doomsday, unfortunately, comes to fruition? Where will you be hiding? How are you going to determine the best places that can provide shelter for you, in the face of volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis and other deadly catastrophes? Have you ever thought of that? If you haven't, then by 2012 you'll most probably be dead. But don't worry! This article contains the five safe places you can go to just in case the world turns crazy and spins out of control.

The 2012 end of world doomsday is only three years away and panic has ensued in most areas worldwide. Many fear that it will be the end. If the environmental prophecies come true there are some "safe havens" that could remain intact during the havoc.

5th Safest Place on the Planet: The Himalayas

The obvious reason for this is that it is the highest location on Earth, so any threat of tsunami or volcanic activity is instantly shut down. However, there is one, itsy bitsy tiny catch: how to get there. Only the best of veteran mountain climbers have ever gotten the chance to step on top of the entire world, and many people died climbing Mount Everest, so our chances of even surviving just traveling to this survival location is very little. This could have been easily the top safest place on the planet if not for the accessibility issue.

4th Safest Place on the Planet: China

China as a nation is well high above sea level, has more than ample resources and manpower to build many survival bunkers, and isn't prone to seismic or volcanic activity. Some of China is also landlocked, which means very little chance for water-related catastrophes to occur. Of course, we're talking about 2012 end of world doomsday here, a lot of things can happen, but on a theoretical level, China is one of the safest countries to live in on Earth should it be destroyed.

3rd Safest Place on the Planet: Sierra Nevada

Europe on 2012 is a very miserable place: it will sink in water, has extensive nuclear facilities that could blow off together, and has very many volcanoes, a few with the most destructive effects ever. Sierra Nevada, a southern mountain range known for its skiing sites, is a paradise for those seeking apocalyptic safety in Europe. It has high peaks, reachable by road, and can provide for adequate shelter and materials for comfortable living amidst the catastrophes abound. Unfortunately, the higher areas are either popular ski resorts or government-owned property, and most of these lands are very expensive to acquire. But it is still a viable place to live in for those who are in Europe and is preparing for the 2012 end of world doomsday.

2nd Safest Place on the Planet: Arizona, USA

Yep, you read that right. Many people think that USA is going to be totally obliterated come December 21, 2012, but the thing is the country's position has been diagnosed collectively, not state-to-state. Arizona, in this regard, is considered the safest place in the USA for an apocalypse. Arizona contains many highlands, which will be the safest place should a pole shift occur, and add to that the fact that it's in America, a country that will be looked upon for help by other countries.


Nobody can ever question this penultimate truth. Africa has been, and is still is, the safest place on the planet. It is the most stable continent, unchanged for millions of years, and it has shifted very little compared to the other continents. Africa has the least number of fault lines and has a negligible volcano count. Though not every place in Africa is conducive for survival, all you need to find are African plains with altitudes 2,300 meters above sea level to be assured of safety.

Geographically, Africa may very well be paradise here on Earth. The biggest drawback is that Africa as a continent is immensely underdeveloped. It has poor infrastructure, has inadequate means of transportation and is home to fatal diseases such as leprosy, malaria and cholera. If someone wants to prepare Africa for the 2012 end of world events, he couldn't do so in time. Add to that the pressure of current political instability in some disputing nations; the viability of Africa becomes lower. But just as it is, if people unite to truly conquer 2012 and set aside differences and prejudices, Africa can become the very cradle of a new civilization that is destined to grow after the whole world suffers the damages of the 2012 end of world Armageddon.

The Reincarnation of James Huston

I could not begin to count the number of times over the years I have heard stories about young people with seemingly psychological traumas (including innate fears and recurring nightmares) that to students of the Edgar Cayce materials would appear to be reincarnation-based. Unfortunately, almost without exception, these young people are simply treated with medications and psychotherapy in an effort to stop "the problem."

Because an understanding of reincarnation and the way in which memory transfers from one incarnation to the next has yet to enter into our mainstream world view there has not been an openness to look at these issues from the perspective of the soul rather than simply from the perspective of the mind. That is until now. The story of downed World War II pilot James Huston reincarnating in our contemporary time as James Leininger may do much to change the way in which parents and health care providers look at fear, reoccurring nightmares, and the journey of the soul.

Recounted in Soul Survivor: The Reincarnation of a World War II Fighter Pilot is the story of two-year-old James Leininger who began having repetitive and horrific nightmares about a man who was stuck in a plane that was on fire, crashing toward the water. He began drawing pictures of the scene - an event that shaped many of his waking thoughts. He told his parents that the man had been shot down. When they asked by whom, the child appeared stunned by their ignorance and replied, "The Japanese."

The child stated that he had been the man in the plane and provided extensive details about the man, his name, James Huston, the ship he was from and the individuals who had served with him. In time, his parents tracked down both family and surviving servicemen who had known James Huston, and little James Leininger provided specific information that could have only been known by Huston. The Japanese even invited young Leininger to return to the place where his plane had been downed more than 60 years ago. The impressiveness of the tale has caused the Leininger story to be picked up by media throughout the country, from ABC's Primetime to Fox News.

For me, the story of James Leininger is a refreshing reminder that we are eternal spiritual beings having ongoing physical experiences in a process of personal growth and enlightenment. There is no doubt in my mind that stories like this will become more commonplace and more accepted, for we are on the verge of a global shift in perception and consciousness - a shift that will lead us to truly understand our connection to one another and our relationship with the Divine. After all, when the workings of reincarnation become the world view then all the things that divide us - whether religion, or power, or ideology or differences of any kind - will simply fade away.

Legends and Metaphysical Properties of Larimar

This blue form of the mineral pectolite is believed to have been affected by volcanic ash thousands of years ago, giving it the unusual blue sheen. Larimar is one of the most complete healing stones in my opinion; if you choose only one stone to carry or wear, consider this one.

Larimar is found only on the island of Hispaniola in the Dominican Republic, where it is becoming scarce. There is little historical reference to it prior to the early 1900s, so it is not known whether the native Taino culture of the island used the stone or not. Crystal energy experts report that this stone is amazingly tuned into the energies of the human body, making it an outstanding healing tool. I personally agree with this, and carry a Larimar with me at all times, especially for its calming nature.

Here is the list of Larimar's many properties, and information on its other names below.

-Calming stress, anxiety
-brings calm and serenity to its wearer
-unites the head and thoughts with the heart and emotions
-helps one to experience an open mind in the face of change
-stone of answers and truths
-aids communication - also with dolphins and sea creatures
-represents and supports peace, clarity, healing, and love
-protective stone against negative energy
-heals on all levels: emotional, physical, mental, spiritual
-a true all around healing stone, but is especially helpful for the thymus, thyroid, and immune system
-balances and empowers the 3rd eye, crown, throat and heart chakras
-contains the program to channel healing energies to the Earth
-soul mate stone-draws ones soul mate
-relationships -releases karmic negativity between couples
-healing for muscles, reduces pain
-softens and enlightens ones perspective
- reputed to draw customers to businesses and salespeople

Larimar was known as Atlantis Stone for many years through the 1980s in Europe, and continues to carry that name in many circles today. The ties to Atlantis stem to a degree from the predictions of the late Edgar Cayce to coincide with the "rising" of Atlantis. Cayce predicted a blue healing stone would be discovered in this century on a Caribbean island, just as Larimar was. Many people with interests in and energetic connections to Atlantis are able to feel energies, detect and sometimes decipher information from that lost civilization in Larimar.

Dolphin Stone is another popular name for Larimar, perhaps because of the lovely marine mammals' association with Atlantis, or the fact that many practitioners use Larimar as a tool to enhance communication with sea creatures. Whats interesting is that this stone often exhibits patterns with dolphins, angels, and Greek columns, as well as other easily recognized images.

Kimberly Gough is a self-taught jewelry maker that prides herself on utiliizing green and recycled elements in her pieces. An avid mineral collector, Kim has chosen Larimar as her favorite gem, and creates one-of-a kind jewelry from stones cut by Domican Artisans. She uses the sea glass she collects on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland in her creations. Visit her website at

Edgar Cayce and A Simple Meditation Method

We must be clear that meditation is an altered state of consciousness. It is not a method for getting our normal consciousness to feel better. "You don't have the meditation because ... you want to feel better, but to attune self to the infinite!" We must set our normal, everyday selves aside and allow our deeper, spiritual selves to attune to the Infinite. This is perhaps the most fundamental and yet the most difficult requirement of meditation. But it can be done. The body, mind and soul are interconnected in such a way that certain actions will automatically lead to "the magic silence" and the awakening of our better selves.

Actions that Lead Inward

We have two nervous systems. One (the Central Nervous System) we use mostly for our outer life -- for acting consciously in the physical. The other (the Autonomic) governs those functions such as breathing and digestion that are taken care of without our conscious participation.

What do these two nervous systems have to do with successful meditation? When we quiet the outer system and do something to stimulate the inner system, we are setting aside our outer selves and actually activating our souls. For example, let's sit down and stop using our musculo-skeletal systems. Let's reduce our sense-perception by closing down our five senses -- close our eyes, stop touching, listening, smelling and tasting. This quiets the outer system and the outer self. Now, let's take hold of some part of the inner system that the soul has charge of and let's alter it. The most popular one is the breath. The autonomic system, under the control of the subconscious mind and soul, is in charge of and directly connected to the breath. If we start changing the breath, we cause the soul and subconscious mind to become alert to the changes. This is an action that leads from our outer selves to our inner selves, and ultimately to an altered state of consciousness.

Physical Changes

Now we know from the research done in the '70s with TM meditators and others, that the body goes through many changes during meditation. As researchers Wallace and Benson discovered, meditation causes measurable physical changes. "There is a reduction in oxygen consumption, carbon dioxide elimination and the rate and volume of respiration; a slight increase in the acidity of the arterial blood; a marked decrease in the blood-lactate level; a slowing of the heartbeat; a considerable increase in skin resistance; and an electroencephalogram pattern of intensification of slow alpha waves with occasional theta-wave activity" (Wallace & Benson, 1973, p. 266).

Reading 5752-3 expands on the wonderful changes: "Meditate ... in the inner secrets of the consciousness, and the cells in the body become aware of the awakening of the life...." The cells of the body become aware? According to the readings, every cell in the body has consciousness, and that consciousness may be raised or lowered. The reading goes on, "In the mind, the cells of the mind become aware of the life in the spirit." The cells of the mind, life in the spirit? Interesting concepts, aren't they? "God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must do so in spirit...." Then, if raising the consciousness leads to awareness of "life in the spirit," it leads to life with God -- the Great Spirit. The wonderful thing about this whole process is that we activate it by entering into the magic silence.

The Magic Silence

For those of you who are just beginning with meditation or who have always had trouble meditating, let me spend a moment to describe this very simple yet effective way to meditate. Then, as you progress with it, you can move on to Kundalini Meditation. The Magic Silence method is a simple yet powerful way for anyone to get into meditation -- especially beginners and those who have difficulty meditating.

Using a combination of an affirmation and a mantra, coordinated with our breathing, we can enter into the magic silence. Let's use a modification of a line from Psalm 46, "Be still and know God." In order to fully succeed with this affirmation/mantra, not only do we need the power of the words, we must also take hold of the breath and create a breathing pattern that arouses the soul. It works like this: "Be STILL" [inhale slowly while feeling the word "still" and then exhale slowly] "and "Know GOD" [inhale slowly while feeling the word "God" and then exhale slowly]. Once you begin to "feel" the reality of these word "Still" and "God", let the breath go on automatic and abide in the feeling. If anything distracts you or feel you want to go deeper into the words, then repeat the deep inhalation and exhalation while saying the phrases. Keep the breath relaxed yet under your control.

If you are in the "stillness" or the "Godness" between the phrases, remain in it as long as your consciousness holds there, breathing gently and evenly. If your consciousness wanders, then bring it back by saying (in your mind) one of the phrases and re-engaging the deep inhalation and exhalation cycle.

The silent periods while feeling the power of essence of these words and their meaning are the more important parts of this practice. The phrases gather and direct the consciousness, and the spaces of silence are golden, or as the readings say, "magical." So, as long as you are silent and still, stay there; don't feel a need to move on to the next phrase or to continue repeating the phrases. Abide in the powerful stillnes and godliness.

This method of combining an affirmation/mantra with breathing will bring even the weakest meditator into a deep stillness and a heightened sense of Godness.

To move deeper, add three "OM's" on the end of the last phrase: "Be STILL [feel and breathe], and know GOD [feel and breathe], OOOMMMM [feel and breathe] OOOMMMM [feel and breathe] OOOMMMM [feel and breathe]. This can be out loud in the beginning and then silently in your mind as you go deeper. When chanting the OM incantation aloud, remember that true chanting is an inner sounding, not an outer singing. (You can hear what this inner resonating sounds like on my audiotape "Tips on Meditation.") Keep the sound resonating within the cavities of your body. Beginning with the abdominal cavity, rising to the pulmonary cavity and then on into the cranial cavity, let the sound carry you deeper.

I've taught this method to people who have never meditated before, had them in a deep silence for twenty minutes, and watched them coming out of it with that wonderful glaze in their eyes that results from an altered state. Their outer self is moved, yet uncertain as to exactly what has happened. But they know they have just meditated well. I've also had people who had tried meditation for years with little success come out of one of these sessions with the biggest smiles on their faces -- victory at last!

Keys to This Method

There are three keys to this method. First, the power of the words "still" and "God," and their effect on us. Second, the connection between the breath and the soul -- allowing us to arouse our souls by taking hold of the breathing pattern. Third, the spaces of silence between the words while breathing. These spaces grow longer and longer as one practices. Eventually, an hour's meditation is easy (and recommended in the readings). According to the readings, and many other sources, the silence is in itself transforming. One need not "do" or "hear" anything when in meditation. Abide in the silence and it works its magic.

Now I would like us to look at another area of the total meditation picture. I would not recommend going on to this next practice (kundalini meditation) until you have practiced the Magic Silence method with much success, and feel you are ready to go deeper. As with medicine so it is with meditation: one person's poison may be another's cure, and activities that may be harmful at one stage in life may be quite helpful at another. You have to judge what is best for you now, and continue to evaluate your readiness as you progress.

It may appear contradictory to say that silence is in itself transforming and then to describe another form of meditation in which inner activities are used to effect greater transformation, but such is the case with the Cayce readings, and other sources. The explanation for this is that the manifold nature of full enlightenment and transformation is such that contradiction and paradox are elements of any method. After all, we are dealing with celestial beings in terrestrial forms, spirits in flesh, gods who are also human, eternal beings in temporary manifestations. Paradox and contradiction are bound to be a part of any process that attempts to resolve or integrate these.

Furthermore, as we progress with our development, we naturally become more able to handle complexity and intricacy. We become more aware of and participate in the many aspects of the Godhead, the Universal Consciousness, with all its diversity.

Edgar Cayce's Apple Diet

One of the most popular and well-known health recommendations in the Edgar Cayce readings is the apple diet. But make no mistake, Cayce did not intend this three-day regimen to be a weight-loss strategy. The "diet" was recommended as a detox or purification routine that could make one feel more energetic and vital in a short period of time. It was particularly noted as a way to alkalize one's system and help relieve oneself of chronic aches and pains. Overall, the apple diet seems to be almost a must for us all a few times a year, if for no other reason than it quite thoroughly cleanses and detoxifies the system.

Searching the Cayce readings on "apple diet" yields a mere twenty-four documents. Interesting that it has become one of the most well-known and applied of the Cayce "remedies." I attribute this to the fact that it is an "easy" routine to follow and IT WORKS! Through the decades I believe that Cayce's apple diet has enjoyed a tremendous amount of word-of-mouth endorsement from one individual to another. I personally do the apple diet three to four times a year. I actually enjoy the mental discipline it requires - and the feeling of health and "lightness" that results.

The first step in the diet is to get your apples! The readings identified the "jenneting" varieties of apples to be best for the routine. Two easily obtained apples within this category are Jonathan and Delicious. As I wrote this article, I decided to do a little research on "jenneting." What exactly does the term mean? Basically these apples are those that ripen early in the season. The term jenneting is derived from the name Jean or John and is so named because these apples ripen on or before St. John's Day, June 24! I love tidbits of information like this as much as apples!

The readings actually state that raw apples should always be eaten alone - never with other foods and never in conjunction with castor oils packs (some people have come to believe the opposite through misinformation - so please heed this admonition). As you can see from this quote, it's an important one: " Do not attempt to use the Apple Diet as a cleanser, if using the Oil Packs." (543-27)

Basically, the diet is simple. Three days of apples (the right apples as mentioned above), plenty of water, and rest. Here's one reading on the apple diet:

"It would be well for this body, even after this, to have a three-day apple diet, even in its weakened condition we need to clear the system. For this will get rid of the tendencies for neuritic conditions in the joints of the body. Also take the Olive Oil after the three-day diet. But don't go without the apples - eat them - all you can - at least five or six apples each day. Chew them up, scrape them well. Drink plenty of water, and follow the three-day diet with the big dose of Olive Oil." (1409-9)

The dose of olive oil is at the end of the diet. Two to three teaspoons is the general recommendation. Cold-pressed olive oil is much more palatable, so you should be sure to have that available. If you are on an oil-restricted diet, you can extend the apples for four to five days. I have never done this myself, but I imagine that the results would be quite noticeable and effective.

As mentioned above, rest is important during the apple diet. A "regular Apple Diet would be well for the body - but don't try to work like a horse when you are on the Apple Diet! or else we will find it will be more detrimental than helpful!" (307-14)

What to Expect

Most people report that the first day is the most challenging in terms of appetite for other foods. A few others seem to feel a bit more challenged on the second day. Just about everyone, however, reports that on day three the feeling of lightness and energy is well worth the effort. So, here's to your health. Let us know your experiences and results.

Edgar Cayce and Chanting

Chanting is an excellent and ancient way to transform vibrations, energize chakras, and raise body, mind, and spirit into the Presence of God. It is a chief method of raising consciousness in Buddhism and Hinduism. Gregorian chanting has seen a revival in Western culture.

Good chanting is deep, inner sounding, not outward singing. The voice's vibrations are directed inward. It is done with low monotones that have a rising movement and a resonance that attempts to vibrate the chakras along the kundalini pathway and move their energy upward.

Each voice is so unique that we could make a lock on a door that only one voice could open. Therefore, the best chanting voice for your body is yours.

There are three chambers within the human body: abdominal, cardio-pulmonary, and cranial. A resonant sounding within these chambers vibrates the endocrine glands that correspond to the chakras. Changing the sounding as one progresses causes the vibration to rise up the body from the lower to the higher chakras through the kundalini pathway. This energizes the body, because the kundalini is the life-force of the body.

Sit comfortably with your back straight. Take a long, deep breath, filling the lungs completely. With slow, deep, resonant tones direct your voice into each of the chambers. Edgar Cayce gives an excellent chant for this purpose: aaaaaaa ("a" as in ah), eeeeeee ("e" as in eat), ooooooo ("o" as in oh), uuuuuuu ("u" as in blue), mmmmmmm ("m" as in room). Using your mind and imaginative forces, direct the aaaaaaa sounding to the lower area of your torso (pelvis and navel), the eeeeeee sounding to your solar plexus (mid-stomach area), the ooooooo to your heart area and on upward to your throat, the uuuuuuu to the base of your brain and over to the center of it, and the mmmmmmm sound to the frontal lobe of your brain and your forehead.

Balance your breath in order to have equal amounts of the sound at each of the areas of the body, leaving enough breath for sounding at your frontal lobe and forehead. As you move the sound with your imagination or mind's eye, move the energy of the body up with it, until your brain is greatly stimulated and the frontal lobe and forehead are tingling. Feel this happening. See it. Imagine it. Know it is happening.

After each set of aaaaaaa, eeeeeee, ooooooo, uuuuuuu, mmmmmmm, abide in silence long enough to feel the strange but wonderful yang-yin relationship of the sounding (yang) and the silence (yin). This helps alter the consciousness and energy of the body and mind and move them inward and upward.

Repeat the chanting long enough to cause an altered state of consciousness to occur. This usually requires at least three sets of aaaaaaa, eeeeeee, ooooooo, uuuuuuu, mmmmmmm to upwards of seven or twelve sets. The goal is not chanting, but deep, stimulated silence in which your body, mind, and spirit feel high and receptive to the Spirit of the infinite, omnipotent, omniscient Presence of God. Then abide in this state until you are sufficiently imbued with the Presence to carry it with you through the whole day.

Allow oft the raising of self through the voice, through the music, that bespeaks of praise, as in the chant to the celestial forces that may make for an attuning of the inner self. 891-1

The entity developed that which later became the chant which to many would drive away what was called the evil eye, the evil influence. 949-12

Q: Did I ever sing? A: As the priestess; ever more the chant than the song. 823-1

Incant [chant] that which carries self deeper, deeper -- to the seeing, feeling, experiencing of that image in the creative forces of love. Then, enter into the Holy of Holies [the third eye]. As self feels or experiences the raising of this, see it disseminated through the inner eye (not the carnal eye) to that which will bring the greater understanding in meeting every condition in the experience of the body. Then listen to the music that is made as each center of thine own body responds to that new creative force. Little by little this entering in will enable self to renew all that is necessary, in Him. 281-13

The Edgar Cayce Diet - A Roadmap to Natural Health

The Sleeping Prophet gave unique guidelines for healthy eating, and the Cayce diet is simple in concept - good advice for almost everyone. In the Western world, food has traditionally been treated as a simple matter of maintaining energy and gaining enjoyment. But, as in the Chinese and Indian traditions of "functional food," Edgar Cayce considered food as medicine, both to cure and prevent disease, and he was very particular about it.

It would be great if we could just ask Cayce for advice about a personal, healthy diet. But since we don't have the master himself here, it makes sense to learn the basic "rules of the road" he left us.

Here are some Cayce dietary DOs and DON'Ts. But keep in mind that we are more than just physical beings - we're a body-mind-spirit composite. Even the sleeping Cayce pointed out the psychological benefit of breaking the food rules now and then. In other words, occasionally eating those french fries that you really enjoy can actually benefit the body if it soothes the mind and emotions!


Eat fish, fowl and lamb. Cayce recommended these as much better than large amounts of beef or pork.

Eat citrus fruits to alkalize, and help prevent colds.

Eat whole grains

Eat local food. A Cayce rule for healthy eating advised that people should consume as much locally grown food as possible. It's fascinating to remember that this principle was also laid-down 5,000 years ago in the ancient Sanskrit Vedas of India, the origin of Ayurveda.

Cayce added that not eating local food was the root cause of allergies! When I first heard that, it made perfect sense -- what better way to cope with environmental factors than to eat the food grown in that environment?

In Cayce's day, most people did eat primarily local food, even people who lived in cities. Small farmers and gardeners brought their produce and meats into towns every morning. Unfortunately for many today, at least in the United States, the majority of our food is raised in just a few states. It can be almost impossible to get local food, unless we grow the food ourselves.

Maintain the proper acid/alkaline balance in the body. This was one of the universal rules -- and he went on to say that it could prevent the common cold entirely! He was describing the way foods react within the body, rather than their intrinsic properties. For example, an orange may test acid with litmus paper, but inside the body, its reaction is alkaline.

What is the right acid-alkaline balance for you? In the Cayce diet, a sedentary person (little exercise) should eat only 20 percent acid-producing foods and 80 percent alkaline-reacting. But then he gave the reverse for a physically active person -- 80% acid,
and 20% alkaline.

Eat 3 vegetables grown above the ground to one grown below. (He excepted at least one diabetic, who was told to reverse the rule to restore the proper balance.)

Prepare vegetables gently, in their own juices, if possible. He recommended patapar paper, which we haven't always found practical. But at least use as little water as possible, in a pot with a tight lid, and always eat all of that water, which contains most of the nutrients.

Many people use a steamer, but we've found that it leads to undercooking of vegetables and waste of the nutrients in the water. Legumes (peas and beans), in particular, can't be digested properly unless thoroughly cooked (or sprouted), and people almost never use the water from steaming.

Eat yogurt, which he called Bulgarian buttermilk, for colon health.

Eat two almonds daily, to prevent cancer.

Eat olive oil, for heart health and colon health. He said everyone would be better for taking a tablespoon of olive oil every night to aid eliminations.

Eat gelatin on greens and vegetables, to increase coordination. We often just sprinkle it on, and stir it in.

Chew food slowly.

Eat in peaceful surroundings.


All fried foods (High heat destroys most food value.) There goes most eating-out, in one fell stroke -- Kentucky Fried Chicken, much of Chinese food, Long John Silver's, most hamburger places, etc.

White flour, in its many forms.

Eating much pork, especially if you have arthritis! He did recommend extremely crisp bacon, and offal meats. (These are what most of us consider the unsavory parts -- organs and intestinal products, which have traditionally been used in bologna, sausage, hot dogs, and some types of meatballs. Unfortunately, nowadays these foods often contain too much salt and harmful preservatives.)

Eating much beef, except his specially prepared beef juice.

Carbonated water. He called pop "slop," except for a few people.

Alcohol, except red wine.

Eating when stressed, overexcited, emotionally upset, or overtired.

Certain combinations of foods, such as milk and citrus (he included tomatoes as citrus); whole grain and citrus; meat or cheese with starches; and milk or cream in coffee.

Foods that disagree with the body, even if you like them, or even if they should be healthy for you.


Can you actually eat this way, and enjoy it? The fact that Vikings (and health nuts) could mix anything healthy together and not notice doesn't really help. Cayce himself cautioned against outraging your taste preferences too violently. But that's what cookery was invented for!

There's no doubt that it will take changes, especially if you?re in the habit of eating the way most people do, and not spending a lot of thought on it.

That's the main thing -- you have to think about what you eat, and where you get it, and how to prepare it. At first, it can take more time to shop, and real cooking does take time, though you can save a lot of it with good planning. But just approach it gradually, and you'll succeed.

What we've discussed are the general Cayce diet principles. But there is much more. If you have a specific question, you can usually find what you need in the Edgar Cayce database at the A.R.E. The knowledge you gain is especially powerful when you can find a Cayce-sympathetic doctor to help you. The Cayce diet legacy could make a big difference in your life -- why not make the most of it?

Edgar Cayce's Wart Remedy

There is a wealth of information in the Cayce readings
on skin care, ranging from suggestions for enhancing
the natural glow of a beautiful complexion to treating skin
problems as unsightly as warts and moles to as painful as
eczema and psoriasis.

This month I'd like to share Cayce's
simple treatment plan for the former. A key ingredient in
the remedies we will discuss is castor oil, a healing element
discussed in superb detail last month by my co-editor,
Elaine Hruska. My hope is that all of our readers were
compelled by Elaine's article to freshen their supply of castor
oil and baking soda (used to cleanse the skin after the
pack). This article can give you an additional use for this
amazing oil, should you or a family member suffer from

It Works!

I've studied the Cayce readings for over twenty-five
years now and met thousands of other people who have
done the same. Over the years I've heard success story after
success story on how the readings have proven effective
in alleviating health problems. If there is a single story
line that most often concludes with the words "It worked!"
it would be stories about Cayce's simple cure for warts.
The most common suggestion by Cayce for the eradication
of warts is a mix of castor oil and baking soda.

Here's the most detailed reading on that subject:

"(Q) How can [1179] get rid of her warts?

"(A) Apply a paste of baking soda with Castor Oil. Mix
together and apply of evenings. Just the proportions so it
makes almost a gum; not as dough but more as gum, see?
A pinch between the fingers with three to four drops in
the palm of the hand, and this worked together and then
placed on - bound on. It may make for irritation after the second or third application, but leave
it off for one evening and then apply
the next - and it will be disappearing!"

It would be nice if this solution
worked for all warts, but it seems from
the readings that there are some instances
where the warts require a different
approach. In this case, the situation
appears to be plantar warts, a painful
situation indeed! Here, Cayce suggests
mixing spirits of camphor with baking
soda. This is a remedy I applied myself
in college, and I am here to tell you personally
that "it works!"

"(Q) There are two growths that
appear to be warts on the ball of my left
foot; what is the best way to dissolve or
remove them?

"(A) Apply each evening a small
amount of baking soda wet thoroughly
with spirits of camphor, just sufficient
to cover same - and bind on so as to
keep over the night. This will cause
some little sharp pain, and a little soreness
for a few days, but will dissolve and
prevent any irritation following same;
for these are as but those eliminations
in system being thrown out in improper
directions." (1101-3)

In some cases, the warts were unusually
stubborn, so Cayce provided a final

"As we find, they may be removed
by touching same with a twenty percent
(20%) solution of Hydrochloric Acid.
But do not pick at them as the discoloration
takes place, and as they begin
to deteriorate! Rather let them wear off
than pick at them, see? for such would
allow too great a chance for infection
by the irritating, and cause disturbance;
otherwise they will disappear. In touching
them with the Acid it is preferable to
use either a glass pestle (that is, a small
round piece of glass) or a broomstraw."
(487-22) (Note: Hydrochloric acid is the
same as muriatic acid, used most commonly
in cleansing concrete and bricks.)

If you or a loved one are challenged
with skin blemishes such as warts, give
the Cayce remedies a try. You'll be sold
on the simple wisdom of the readings
