The Lost Civilizations of Atlantis and Lemuria

The mystique of Atlantis and Lemuria is legendary. While little is known factually, their memory and mythology live on in the collective psyche.
Songs have been written about Atlantis, Disney made an animated movie about Atlantis and there's even a resort named Atlantis down in the Bahamas.
Lemuria on the other hand is less of a cultural phenomenon than Atlantis. Its origins and existence are shrouded in more mystery than those of its counterpart.
Some have theorized that a "super-continent" once existed connecting Madagascar and India. This large land mass was given the name Lemuria, or the "Land of Mu" after the Lemurs found in the area.
Others, including famous American psychic Edgar Cayce, have suggested that Lemuria existed in what is now called the "Pacific Ring of Fire." This area encircles the basin of the Pacific Ocean and is home to all kinds of seismic and volcanic activity. One theory says that gigantic earthquakes swallowed up Lemuria.
Interestingly, the legend of Mu is a part of island lore all across the Pacific. In fact, for thousands of years the Polynesian peoples have handed down the story of a long lost continent in the Pacific that was the original motherland of mankind.
Then there are the writings of James Churchward. His 5-volume series of books about Lemuria suggests that this "motherland" stretched from the Hawaiian Islands to Fiji and from Easter Island to the Marianas.
I find it intriguing that the Mariana Trench, located near the Marianas, is considered the deepest part of the world's oceans. Who knows what lies buried beneath... perhaps the lost civilization of Lemuria?
Drawing upon science, ancient art, mythology and the occult, Churchward describes in vivid detail what he believed life was like on Lemuria. He goes so far as to say that the Biblical story of the Garden of Eden was centered on this now-submerged continent.
Churchward writes that Lemuria had a sophisticated government, advanced scientific technology and a flowering culture. The people of Lemuria had highly developed psychic abilities including telepathy, teleportation and telekinesis.
Some believe the Great Pyramid of Giza was built by descendants of Lemuria or Atlantis who retained these abilities. That might explain how such large blocks of stone could be moved and aligned so perfectly.
So... are Atlantis and Lemuria lost civilizations, and if true, what secrets might they hold?
Sadly, even with advanced technology, a disease-free existence and mental abilities far beyond what we have today, these civilizations faded into the mists and myths. Theories surrounding the downfall of Lemuria and Atlantis vary from natural disasters like earthquakes and floods to weapons of mass destruction.
It leaves me to wonder... if these civilizations could be unearthed, might there be lessons to be learned from their ancient histories? Are there technological marvels waiting to be rediscovered that might eliminate disease or world hunger?
The discovery of what Cayce calls a "Hall of Records" hidden beneath the watery depths could radically transform our understanding of God and our place in the Universe. Such a discovery might help heal religious divisions at the root of so many senseless wars.
If Churchward, Cayce and others are correct, these lost continents may hold keys to the positive transformation of 21st human life. And this may be the greatest gift the lost continents of Atlantis and Lemuria could give present day humankind.
Time will tell...

Differing Types Of Fortune Telling

It has become a common practice for people to hire a fortune teller or psychic to help them decide how to proceed with their future. This can range from simple things to decide to much more difficult and specific decisions in their lives such as job changes or family decisions. There are so many different types of ways to get your future read. Some of the most popular ways are runes psychic readings, palm readings and tarot cards. There are psychics found just about everywhere these days. You can find them on most big city streets, private homes and even the internet.
A psychic reading is basically an attempt to help you decide how your future is going to go. This became really popular in the nineteenth and twentieth century. In the 1500's psychic reading became legal for people to practice. Before that you were put to death by burning if you got caught practicing what was considered witchcraft. Since the practice became legal it has become a wide spread use of many people. Runes psychic readings, tarot cards and astronomy are used every day to help people understand their path in life.
Runes psychic readings are an ancient alphabet mat that is used to help decide your future. The difference about this kind of reading is this is considered magic. Not all psychic readings are considered as magic. Tarot card reading is the most popular reading. Using cards to determine your future are fun and used at most entertaining purposes such as the fair. These are not typically taken very seriously. Palm reading is popular and not really considered using a psychic ability. Psychics study the lines and wrinkles in your palm to tell you the future. There are many more different types of psychic readings and you can choose which ever one you feel is right for you.
Psychic readings are not for everyone. You have to determine whether or not you feel the medium or psychic is telling you any useful information. Only you can make that decision. Talk to your psychic and decide if she is giving you vague information or useful information. Does their information actually help you? These are simple ways to decide if you should continue to go back to the psychic. Knowing which kind of psychic to use can be a tough decision. Study the different methods of psychic readings and help decide which one you would like to use. Many people choose a simple way of reading over the more advanced and expensive readings because they get the same amount of useful information from them. Only you can decide which one is right for you. Make sure your psychic is credited and has a great knowledge of what they are doing.

Biblical UFOs, Abductions And Ancient Astronauts

I have long maintained that God and the gods were not totally imaginary, but not supernatural either, rather extraterrestrials (ET). What ET is known for today, among other things, are not only those UFO encounters of the first, second and third kind, but those alleged abductions of humans for various purposes - close encounters of the fourth kind. Perhaps as it is now, so it was back in Biblical times.
Here are some people and events from the Bible (King James Version) that is suggestive of close encounters of the heavenly or out-of-this-world or extraterrestrial kind. Heavenly is apt since heaven is literally out-of-this-world.
One of the keywords in searching for Biblical UFOs is the 'whirlwind'. In Biblical texts, the 'whirlwind(s)' - all 27 references - is clearly identified with phenomena caused by or related to God, or the LORD as He often is referred to, or more often as not refers to Himself. Whirlwinds go up, as in the case of Elijah (see immediately below), and they come down, as for example in Ezekiel (see further below).
Elijah is only one of two people in the Bible who does not die. Why? Here's why!
2 Kings 2:11: And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
*Now we have no idea what really transpired after that abduction, but there are those who maintain that, all these centuries later, Elijah is alive and well and has yet a role to play in that 'end of days' scenario.
Malachi 4:5: Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.
*So Elijah is abducted, but will ultimately be returned, sort of like modern UFO/alien abductees, only over a far longer time span.
Enoch is the other of that duo that doesn't die in the Bible. While there is no quasi-UFO event, there is an abduction related scenario according to the Bible.
Genesis 5:24: And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
Hebrews 11:5: By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
*If God took him, and God is an ET, then an alien UFO abduction rose-by-any-other-name is still an alien UFO abduction.
Ezekiel had that famous UFO encounter recounted in Ezekiel chapter one relating those wheels within wheels and various creatures that looked sort-of like men but weren't. Ezekiel says he had a "vision" of God, but if God is really an extraterrestrial, then Ezekiel had a vision of an extraterrestrial(s) or in modern parlance, a 'close encounter of the third kind'. Here are the first couple of verses.
Ezekiel 1:4: And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.
Ezekiel 1:5: Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man.
Ezekiel 1: 6: And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.
*Ezekiel's close encounter is fairly self-explanatory, and it goes on from there. But what happened after that?
Ezekiel 3:12: Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing, saying, Blessed be the glory of the LORD from his place.
Ezekiel 3:13: I heard also the noise of the wings of the living creatures that touched one another, and the noise of the wheels over against them, and a noise of a great rushing.
Ezekiel 3:14: So the spirit lifted me up, and took me away, and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit; but the hand of the LORD was strong upon me.
Ezekiel 3:15: Then I came to them of the captivity at Telabib, that dwelt by the river of Chebar, and I sat where they sat, and remained there astonished among them seven days.
*All of that sounds a bit like an unwilling UFO abduction to me!
Another keyword associated with a possible Biblical UFO event is 'cloud'. Take Moses for example. Moses too was 'abducted' in a cloud by God, but, as typical of most abductees, returned safely to earth, or in the case of Moses, the wilderness.
Exodus 19:9: And the LORD said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick cloud.
Exodus 24:15: And Moses went up into the mount, and a cloud covered the mount.
Exodus 24:18: And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights.
Exodus 33:9: And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the Lord talked with Moses.
Exodus 34:5: And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him [Moses] there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.
Speaking of clouds as a term for UFOs by those who comprehended the idea of a 'cloud' but not of an extraterrestrial atmospheric shuttlecraft, we note that a Biblical 'cloud' actually transports; it goes up and down and contains passengers. Here are a few examples from the Old Testament.
Exodus 13:21: And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night.
Exodus 16:10: And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of the LORD appeared in the cloud.
*When the Lord assisted His Chosen People out of Egypt, He didn't hoof it like the Israelites but oversaw events from his aerial 'cloud'.
Numbers 11:25: And the LORD came down in a cloud.
Numbers 12:5: And the LORD came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tabernacle.
Numbers 12:10: And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle.
*Clearly this 'cloud' not only has a passenger (the Lord) but lands and takes off.
Deuteronomy 31:15: And the LORD appeared in the tabernacle in a pillar of a cloud: and the pillar of the cloud stood over the door of the tabernacle.
*God's own personal aerial limousine again is depicted as a 'cloud'.
Psalm 104:3: Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind.
*We note the association between (aerial) clouds and transportation (chariots), as well as a hint of actually being airborne. I mean if you're in an aircraft and you move about the cabin, you could be said to be walking on the wings of the wind in a manner of speaking.
Isaiah 19:1: Behold, the LORD rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it.
*Not only does God ride as if a passenger in a cloud, but the 'cloud' is moving along at a pretty quick-smart pace.
Jeremiah 4:13: Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are swifter than eagles.
*A multi-association is depicted between a passenger and clouds and chariots and whirlwinds and speed.
Ezekiel 1:4: And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.
*I repeat the quote of what kick-started Ezekiel's close encounter, but noting specifically the associations between a whirlwind and a cloud as well as fire (akin to that pillar of fire in Exodus?) and brightness. While a whirlwind-cloud might be a tornado, that sort of weather event isn't common in the region and isn't associated with fire and brightness. Besides, this whirlwind-cloud disembarked living creatures.
Ezekiel 10:3: Now the cherubims stood on the right side of the house, when the man went in; and the cloud filled the inner court.
*Could this be a suggestion of a landed UFO 'cloud' that first landed and then disembarked a man in an inner courtyard? If the cloud had really been fog then more than just the inner court would have been filled.
UFO 'clouds' aren't confined to just the Old Testament. The New Testament clouds the issue as well.
Matthew 17:5: While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
Mark 9:7: And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.
Luke 9:34: While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud.
Luke 9:35: And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.
*It would appear that God's cloudy limousine has made the transition from Old to New Testament.
Luke 21:27: And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
*It would also appear that Jesus gets to ride in his daddy's cloudy limo too, or more likely he had one of his own.
Acts 1:9: And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
*Up, up and away he went in a 'cloud' only to finally vanish from sight.
Revelation 1:7: Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him.
Revelation 10:1: And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire.
*What goes up must come down, and so those who from on high who will partake in Armageddon will need to transport on down, and of course the preferred means is via that 'cloud'.
Revelation 11:12: And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
*What goes down must go up. Mortals hail a taxi; ET thumbs a ride back to his heavenly abode via a 'cloud'.
Another possible UFO connection could be a 'star'. While most references in the Bible that refer to stars really do refer to those celestial stellar objects; most, but not quite all. There's that one famous exception - the Star of Bethlehem.
Matthew 2:9: When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.
*Alas for a natural explanation, no celestial objects (apart from the North Polar Star Polaris) ever stand still since the Earth rotates, and one assumes that the North Star was a familiar object - which was in the north and not in the east in any event. This was obviously not a standard celestial sight, and since it 'guided' people to a specific destination then stood still, well that implies intelligence. Therefore this is another case of a Biblical UFO under the direction of ET.
Chariots are an obvious choice as something associated with UFOs, especially given Erich Von Daniken's best seller "Chariots of the Gods". Most chariots in the Bible are clearly your standard horse-drawn ground vehicle. Of course there are exceptions.
2 Kings 2:11: And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
*I repeat this famous passage to illustrate the association of a chariot with an up, up and away whirlwind.
Psalm 104:3: Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind.
*I repeat this verse to indicate the cloud-chariot connection as well as the other aerial connection of walking-wings-wind.
Jeremiah 4:13: Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are swifter than eagles.
*I repeat this verse to point out the connection of a chariot with both the whirlwind and clouds. The horses are given an aerial connection being compared to eagles, all the more obvious since the "he" in question is ascending.
Isaiah 66:15: For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.
*We note the association with the whirlwind; the implication that the chariots are airborne.
Zechariah 6:1: And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass.
Zechariah 6:2: In the first chariot were red horses; and in the second chariot black horses.
Zechariah 6:3: And in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot grisled and bay horses.
*Zechariah must have been puffing on the good stuff. The four chariots appear to be aerial coming out from between two mountains, mountains that were made of brass - WTF? Further, all the horses aren't pulling the chariots; they are "in" the chariots!
And whatever are we to make of this incident? Is he doing some more puffing on the weed perhaps? What transpires in Zechariah is hardly an incident that anyone would suggest is an alien abduction, nor is there a cloud noted, but it's still obviously a close encounter of the third kind.
Zechariah 5:1: Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll.
Zechariah 5:2: And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits.
*A "flying roll" is a near perfect description for a standard disc-shaped UFO. Now a cubit is roughly equal to 18 to 22 inches, so let's call it 20 inches even. That makes the "flying roll" 400 inches in length and 200 inches in breadth, or a bit over 33 feet in length and a bit over 16.5 feet in breadth. That's pretty good ballpark figures when compared to your average run-of-the-mill modern UFO sighting.
Zechariah 5:9: Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out two women, and the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heaven.
*These winged females are not identified in any shape, manner or form as being angels. In fact they aren't identified as anything at all, except winged females.
While non-human entities in the Bible aren't depicted with green skin, or pointed ears or antenna or oozing slime or hoisting ray-guns, there are certainly some out-of-this-world creatures in the Bible. The most notable of these are the winged beings called the Cherubim and the Seraphim. [Note: despite popular depictions, angels aren't winged.]
Exodus 25:20: And the cherubims shall stretch forth their wings on high.
2 Chronicles 3:13: The wings of these cherubims spread themselves forth twenty cubits: and they stood on their feet, and their faces were inward.
Isaiah 6:2: Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
John 8:23: And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
*Though one could put this statement in a supernatural context, one could just as easily interpret this as having an extraterrestrial context.
So there you have it. This is by no means an exhaustive list of relatively suggestive close encounters as related in the Bible. For more of same, see my further suggested reading list immediately below.
Further readings: While dozens of books on 'ancient astronauts' and UFOs will discuss the more famous of the Biblical UFO events, there's more to Biblical UFOs than just The Star of Bethlehem and the Wheel of Ezekiel.

Psychic Abilities Twins Have

Ahh, the mystery of twins, we have all heard about the connections and some of us have even seen it with our own eyes, but how real is it? Do twins really have ESP (Extra Sensory Perception)? Well, first off what is ESP really?? And if twins do have this ability do both fraternal and identical twins show signs?? Pretty interesting stuff if you ask me, so that is why we decided to take a deeper look into twins and their 'twin abilities' and this is what we found.
First off let's start with what is ESP? ESP is the ability to sense things without using our natural bodily senses such as touch, sight, or sound, sometimes referred to as a sixth sense or intuition, in other words to have a form of psychic abilities. Now as far as fraternal or identical, it is said that both sets of twins show signs of a spiritual connection to one another but it is believed that identical twins show a stronger natural psychic ability to each other than fraternal.
The mystery, one twin is grocery shopping 30 miles away from where the other is about to cross the street to get to a book shop and twin one feels what she describes to be a horrible feeling, or 'gut instinct' that the other is in trouble and low and behold, they were, at that exact time twin 1 calls twin 2 and she has just been in an accident. Scientist will tell you it was a fluke, a coincidence, but those twins know better, I mean, twins have been known to even share secret languages with one another.
So, what exactly do the scientists say?? They have been studying this amazing connection for years, twins choosing the same foods or replying the same answers to questions, but in lots of cases of long term husband and wife they will also answer in the same way. This ability can be due to simply living in the same proximity for so long, it's their abilities to sense danger or happiness that are truly amazing. In the end there is no scientific evidence that twins have ESP there are no proven connections between twin minds and their abilities. But in the end, there is no scientific proof that psychics carry the abilities that they do either, I guess, either you believe it or you don't. Example, you walk right by a twin who is nowhere near pregnant and all of a sudden she feels labor pains you help her call her twin sister and in all the amazement find the other twins water just broke, how do you walk away from that not finding it simply incredible!
Some things in life don't require a 100% fact full of explanations to just exist, I am sure almost all of us believe in something not because we have been given the proof but because the proof was in the amazing outcomes. There is no other way to explain this phenomenon between twins, you just believe.

2013 Psychic Predictions for the Fire, Water, Air and Earth Signs

Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius):
You are out in the world in some significantly bigger way. Travel is likely, and life offers you expansive new options. Something is taking you higher! You might go through more personal change this year than you ever have. Let yourself and your life change. Then you burn very bright and are more focused. This year your new beginnings represent a higher octave: your plans and your networks come together more masterfully; you are able to produce much more. Take care to stay in good spirits and keep up friendships, even if you don't feel you have a lot of time for relationships. In 2013 you may benefit from past deeds or plans coming to fruition. Still, long-term circumstances are not in focus; you are still negotiating big changes that you haven't stepped into fully.Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): You are strongly motivated this year and can stick to a healing, liberating regime. It's good you've got more discipline because the cycles you want to break take time and stick-to-itiveness, at least six weeks. After some kind of purification, your excited self comes back, you have new and inspiring ideas to work on and life is fun. You're more expressive of your love, too. You're going to have more fire and energy this year. If employed, you have the drive and ability to get more money for what you do. In any case, you are likely to have new resources to work with and more ways to do what you want, because of your decisions or others' that impact you.
Air (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius): You learned a lot in 2012 that you can apply in 2013. You are better able to cope with everything; you're starting life a few rungs up. Don't be afraid of how magical life can get, or the creative potential that unleashes in you. Sounds hyperbolic, but you can get everything and anything you want this year. Something you wanted in 2007 is more available now. 2013 is a year of high magic, and the spirits will find you to dance with!
Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn): New income streams and roles are available. What's good news is that you end up with more financial stability. One chapter closes and another begins. You could start a new business. Or you could be part of a venture... in some way there's something new about business ventures, and it could get you out in the world also. Earth signs loosen up! They are knowing and acting on things they could never learn before. Life flows much better, and in some area you have arrived at "mastery of subject". Huzzah huzzah for more success, love, and all the rest. However, your first response to 2013 might be to come to some kind of resting point and realization about anything that has to be let go of. Life will be challenging but in a good way this year... stay in the feeling zone, be sure your feelings are in agreement with your decisions.

There are many forms of haunting experiences and of course the paranormal. Certainly some of these experiences are more intense than others as well as some being more common than most.
Residual Haunting
This type of haunting is a very common site to see or maybe even just hear. Residuals are typically memories or characteristics of the departed which are believed to be imprinted to the environment.
You might see a jogger running in the park for instance, or see someone cooking in the kitchen or any other kind of activities that some person at some point of time has done.
The residual haunting is not only seen, they can be just heard as well. For example sounds of sword fighting on famous battlegrounds, agonising screams from the tortured souls at Dracula's Castle and even in Japan's Aokigahara Forest many have claimed on numerous occasions of hearing voices in the trees telling the living to kill themselves.
Intelligent Haunting
This type of haunting is a full apparition of a living presence and unlike the residual haunting, this spirit is well and truly aware and may even interact with the living.
This goes above just memories and characteristics, these ghosts have carried on their personalities too. An intelligent haunting can be very unnerving and some time it's claimed that these spirits may be aggressive.
Generally it is believed that these ghosts will appear to a person of living in order to convey a message or to find someone they were searching for in their former lives.
The film 'Sixth Sense' is a perfect example of this form of ghost, where the boy could see dead people but they hadn't known they passed on and needed guidance accepting this fact to cross over.
Poltergeist are general not visible to the human eye, these spirits like to cause havoc by moving or throwing objects and making a lot of noise.
The theory with Poltergeist is that these spirits were mischievous in their former lives or are generally young to adolescence, but there is much debate whether or not a poltergeist are ghosts or not.
The argument is that when a poltergeist is reported it has often happened to a person with a highly emotional charge and this power can create a strong telekinetic force. In short it is said that the person being haunted is actually the one causing everything to move telepathically.
Demons are seen as something a little different to ghosts, while they are spirits and certainly fall into the category of the paranormal... it is not believed to be a spirit of a former living person.
Due to the varying nature of demonic haunting it is very hard to tell if the haunting is from a ghost or a demon. The demons purpose in the Earth realm is to break down a human's spirit in order for possession of the body to take place.
A demon is one of the great deceivers much like the devil and will often pose as a lost relative or an innocent looking young child but it doesn't take long until the demon starts showing signs of evil.
The smell of sulphur is often an indicator of a demon as well as the behaviour of the haunting. Compared to ghosts of the former living a demon may become irrational and angry as well even causing physical harm to the person they "befriend" such as a hand print or burn mark.
Some other ghost haunts include something known as white noise. This is where you may see or hear ghosts through static on the TV or on the radio and unexplained shadow figures.
As the ghostly experiences vary it is hard to determine whether or not you are experiencing a true haunting.
Common traits of a real haunting are things like hearing doors or cupboards slamming, generally heard but not seen by the living, when certain items go missing and reappear frequently, pets behaving strangely without apparent cause, strange perfume or odours in the air, hot and cold spots throughout the house and the unnerving feeling of being watched. Not to mention the smell of sulphur if a demon spirit is present.
These are the common types of ghosts sighted, but of course there are many other experiences and cases reported. It could be ghosts in houses & other spooky places such as haunted hotels, haunted castles, haunted cemeteries and many other locations.

Astrological Predictions for 2013-2014

Let's take a look at my predictions for 2012-13 and see what actually happened:
Here's what I predicted:
- More uprisings and riots.
There were riots in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Israel, Greece and Spain.
- An escalation of natural disasters. There was an avalanche in Afghanistan, epic fires in Colorado, and a 7.7 earthquake off the east coast of British Columbia, Canada causing a tsunami in Hawaii.
- Water issues worldwide. We saw widespread flooding in Nepal, Pakistan, Russia, Romania, North Korea, Nigeria, the UK, Spain, a typhoon in the Philippines and Hurricane Sandy.
- Rising unemployment into double digits in many countries. Spain and Greece are over 25% and an average of 11% in the 27 EU member states. US is reported at 8% but probably closer to 12%.
- Governments taking more control over our privacy. On November 20th, the Senate rewrote a bill which now allows the feds to read private emails without a warrant. This law increases government access to emails and other digital files. This rewrite was done quietly and secretly. It now allows more than 22 agencies to access Americans' email, Google Docs files, Facebook wall posts, and Twitter direct messages without a search warrant. It also gives the FBI and Homeland Security more authority to gain full access to Internet accounts without notifying either the owner or a judge. I am expecting sneaky controls over our freedoms and our privacy to encroach on us gradually and without our being aware of it until it's too late.
- More QE. i.e. money printing. In September of 2012, the US embarked on QE3, another huge round of borrowing and money printing.
- Pension plans going bankrupt. E.g. The US Postal Service is broke and cannot pay into their pension fund, teachers retirement funds have gone broke, public pensions in many countries are underfunded and in danger of going under.
- More focus on banks and financial institutions, a tightening of their regulations, more bailouts, more greed and more fraudulent activities. And that's exactly what's happened.
- Growth of new technology, mobile phones and social networking. Apple launched its IPhone 5 in September, Smartphones, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr and Pinterest have all seen accelerated growth. There were advances in Iphones, android phones and an upsurge in the use of mobile apps.
- A rise in anti- immigration laws and regulations. Since 2010, when Arizona introduced draconian immigration laws, 35 other states have tried to introduce similar rulings.
- Price of gold and silver continuing to rise. Whilst precious metals didn't perform as well as I expected, they have still risen nearly 5% this year and it is only a matter of time before gold reaches over $3000 an ounce and silver is at $100 an ounce.
2013-2014 - Important Astrological Aspects
- There is a great deal of Water activity with Saturn in Scorpio, Neptune in Pisces and Jupiter going into Cancer on June 25th making a Grand Trine in Water.
- All three Mercury retrograde periods are in Water signs.
- Intense Cardinal activity happening building up to the Grand Cross in December, one of the most powerful astrological aspects with Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn, Jupiter in Cancer and Mars in Libra.
The ongoing square between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn is very much in force during 2013. Remember that Uranus rules uranium and Pluto rules plutonium so there is a likelihood of increased nuclear instability and nuclear accidents.
This is going to be accentuated when Jupiter goes into Cancer at the end of June 2013 as Jupiter always increases and amplifies everything, so you can expect even stronger dissonance with respect to the economy, politics, weather changes especially earthquakes and volcanoes.
The USA has Jupiter and Sun conjunct in Cancer (July 4th, 1776), so the second half of 2013 and the first half of 2014 is its Jupiter return. Expect to see issues around Homeland security, the safety of US citizens, and a search for belonging and security in general. The positive and negative issues will be highly polarised.
It will be a year of opposites: war and peace, moving forwards and moving backwards, safety and vulnerability, balancing business and personal, home and work, emotional ups and downs, periods when a great deal is happening and periods that seem as though nothing is happening, holding onto the past and yet striving towards the future. The Cardinal signs signify that we need to be responsible for our own destiny and not rely on our governments to provide stability and security for our future.
Let's not forget the powerful Grand Trine in Water with Jupiter in Cancer, Neptune in Pisces and Saturn in Scorpio. This is particularly strong during July 2013 but lasts energetically until mid-2014. This will bring increased confidence especially by lawmakers and governments in our economic and political systems. There could even be an upswing in the economy and the US dollar could go up in value. If it does happen, it will probably be short-lived and by the middle of 2014 if there has been an improvement in the economy, it is likely to be followed by a sharp drop a year or so later.
Neptune in Pisces for the next 14 years indicates more flooding, tsunamis and excess water especially in coastal areas. There could also be issues with water purity and contamination.
On February 9th, Mars is conjunct to Neptune which could be very favourable. It could be an opportunity to achieve something you have been dreaming of.
On 21st March, Mars goes into Aries and will be conjunct with Uranus. This is a combustible combination and could lead to explosions and sudden riots, upsets, surprises. It can also indicate war.
On 21st July 2013, Mars conjuncts with Jupiter in Cancer which adds more power to the T-square with Uranus and Pluto. I expect this to bring more sudden changes with respect to governments, control issue, power, the economy, social issues.
On December 7th, Mars goes into Libra which completes the Grand Cross with Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn and Jupiter in Cancer. This is extremely powerful and will be the beginning of even more vast changes. Mars usually stays in a sign for about 2 months, but this time it goes retrograde on March 1st 2014 and stays in Libra until July 26th 2014. So we can expect another 6 - 7 months of opposing energies where agreements are hard to find and where progress is restricted. This can be happening not only on the macro level, but also on the micro level in your own life. You may feel as though your life is not moving ahead, as if you are in a holding pattern and you don't know what action to take. When you take action there may be little or no apparent results. Keep in mind that the earth is in the middle of all these opposing and squaring planets and you may find yourself trying to look forward and being pulled backwards, deciding to take a risk and then backing out of it, changing your mind frequently, your location, your job and your relationships. It will take a huge effort for you to break free of old, destructive habit patterns and to move into a new, more uncertain yet happier life.
Old structures that are no longer working for you will be pulled down. You may feel lonely, isolated and abandoned, but try to remain strong and realise that the reason that this is happening is because subconsciously you wanted more for yourself in your life. The old relationships that were draining and not fulfilling, the job that you hated, the lack of purpose and direction you felt in your life... all this had to change for you to be happy and feeling as though you were fulfilling your destiny on the planet. You will have the opportunity to move to a higher vibration, but to do that you will have to let go of the old and to be ready to move into the unknown and to have faith in the new. It will be a particularly powerful time for the Cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn (and this will apply if it is your Sun, Moon or ascendant sign), and also for all the water signs: Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.
Summary of Predictions for 2013-2014:
- Worsening global economic crisis with more demonstrations and civil unrest
- Youth protesters will turn violent even though we have had mainly peaceful protests so far
- Higher unemployment
- Stock market earnings slide lower
- Multiple investigations of banking corruption and fraud
- Rising oil and food costs
- More failures of large insurance companies
- Extreme weather patterns from very hot to very cold
- Gold and silver to be very volatile with even more price manipulation, sometimes going lower and then much higher
- More power outages and for longer
- Survival kits will become a necessity
- Alternative power sources will become more mainstream - more use of green technologies: solar power plants, rooftop solar panels, wind farms, geothermal uses, hydrogen power plants
- Greater paranormal activity - more reporting of visitations from other beings
- Space exploration increasing and the uncovering of greater knowledge
- More people power using Twitter, Facebook and other social media concerning customer service. For the first time ever the consumer will have the power when rating a restaurant, hotel, airline, computer, products and services in general
- Increase in military threats especially in the Middle East and this could be very explosive towards the end of 2013 when Mars is square to Uranus
- Despite the crisis, some industries will grow. E.g. certain medical areas such as: regenerative medicine growing new bones, cartilage etc.
- Growth in certain food industries, catering, food technology
- New types of restaurants and food outlets
- Greater knowledge and research placed on nutrition and diet
- Healing and health products become more prominent
- Focus on locally grown food and its preservation
- Advances in water purification techniques
- Energy efficient housing construction market growing e.g. passive houses
- Security businesses could see massive growth - physical and/or virtual
- Breakthroughs in oceanography and our understanding of the sea
- 3D printing become more accessible and getting closer to becoming mainstream
- Traditional newspapers becoming obsolete - new forms of media where we the people are the reporters, not the controlling few who sift the news and keep us uninformed
I am anticipating that overall economically, times will get worse over the next few years. Some economists are forecasting an upswing in the economy from the middle of 2013. And indeed with the grand water trine and Jupiter in Cancer, this is possible for a brief time. However, we should not be misled into thinking that the crisis is behind us and that we can confidently invest with security. With Uranus strongly featuring for the next 6 years, we will have to learn to expect the unexpected. I didn't expect gold and silver to drop as sharply as they have done over the last few weeks. However, markets never go up in a straight line. If they did, everyone would be able to make a fortune. I am anticipating greater volatility and uncertainty in the markets with wider swings from high to low than ever before. If you are a good trader during these times, you could make a fortune. However, you could also lose a fortune. But the opportunities will be there.
The key through all this hardship is going to be compassion and love with people coming together and helping one another through the changes. We can choose to make this a pleasurable and joyful time or we can make it even more difficult for ourselves. The choice is ours. I vote for helping one another, looking out for different ways of doing things, thinking outside the box, sharing our knowledge and expertise, working together and creating a new, exciting and better future for us all.
