Take in the Sun While You Can

The Coronavirus pandemic is assaulting our health, disturbing our peace of mind and forcing us to question values and priorities. For some it will challenge their core beliefs.

Among the many news items that hit my inbox today was an article urging everyone to get out in the sunshine to absorb some vitamin D and brighten our mood, in anticipation of a possible lockdown, confining us all indoors for a while. In fact I shared a story on social media last week titled “Coronavirus and the Sun: a Lesson from the 1918 Influenza Pandemic” (read the article HERE) which included the line, “sunlight is germicidal and there is now evidence it can kill the flu virus.”

The Coronavirus has also given many of us pause to take stock of our life values. When faced with our mortality, we tend to reflect on our spiritual beliefs and re-examine those non-material goals that we may have said we’ve been too busy to follow through on, up until now.

I see on social media today that a number of New Age teachers are proclaiming this virus as the advent of a new awareness, while others fear it heralds an apocalypse. The pandemic affects both rich and poor alike – though there are concerns the gap of inequity could actually widen in its aftermath.

We each ask our own existential questions: Why has the virus come at this time (particularly for those of us in Australia who have just been through bushfires, droughts and then, for some, floods). Or, how can this be happening to me? Who or what is responsible for creating the problem, and why?

Then comes the uncomfortable inquiry into our authentic selves. Were we truly fulfilled and inspired by what we hitherto considered to be ‘normal’ life? How much time have we been spending doing what we love? Have we repressed our inner passion, getting caught up in the hectic and often meaningless pursuits of modern life? Have we given away too much power to negative forces?

At a time when many are doing physical exercises to stay fit while cooped up indoors, and others find activities to relieve the mental tedium and depressing circumstances of isolation, some of us turn to ‘spiritual exercises.’ The main point I would like to make in this blog is that it is never too late to pursue the path of self-realization.

Sure, if you’re getting on in years, the chance to become a lifetime devotee of a particular mystical or spiritual discipline may have passed you by; but recently it has become increasingly evident to me that the average person instinctively understands they have an inner self or, if you prefer, a higher part of the self. I say this because we all talk about following our heart; our heart of hearts; the bottom of our heart; heartfelt intentions. Most of us, when we refer to ourselves in conversation, automatically point to our heart. (As a side note, I have always been intrigued that Thai people use the term kow jai to indicate understanding – it literally means to enter the heart.)

People have, for a long time, spoken about the separation of head and heart. But lately, everywhere I look I see new age articles about how to reconnect with your heart, and the consciousness of the heart. Ever since reading a book called The Division of Consciousness in the nineties, I have been exploring how our innermost, intangible beings have become divided, causing us to feel a constant tug of war going on inside between the “angel and the beast” within us.

Then a few months ago I was blessed with the opportunity to read the book, The Secret of the Golden Flower, translated by Richard Wilhelm with commentary by Carl Jung, which incorporates ancient Chinese wisdom. With the primary intention of getting the concepts of it straight in my mind, I wrote down my own interpretation of it in a brief article on one of my websites. Following are two excerpts from that piece.

First extract:
The Hebrew tradition, not to mention other apparently unrelated cultures around the world, has left us with legends of Fallen Angels, the Fall of Mankind and a Great Flood. On the subject of the Fall of Mankind, I became intrigued many years ago by the premise of a book titled The Division of Consciousness by Peter Novak. Could the Fall refer to our descent to the Earthly plane from a higher realm, resulting in a division of ‘Self’? When you stop to think about it, many (if not all) of humankind’s woes are caused by separation and division among people, and by competition – which is drilled into us from a young age and presented as being good for us.

Following the same line of thinking, it can be said that each person is divided within themselves. Which may be why the words inscribed at the Temple of Delphi exhorted us to ‘know ourselves.’ And why Jesus stated in the evangelical gospels that we need to be ‘born again,’ and in the Gospel of Thomas that we need to make the ‘two into one.’ And why mystical orders teach us of the need for an ‘alchemical marriage.’

Six months ago I published a blog called Mending the Divided Self in which I wrote about how we search for the part of our self that is ‘separated.’ The first thing many will think of in this regard is a split between body and soul, or even between the left and right brain. I have been studying various religious teachings, mystical orders and esoteric techniques for most of my life, and particularly in earnest over the past 25 years, so I have formed, under guidance, my own approach and practices. Since joining Cosolargy 5 years ago, I have come to realize that the Sun and its Light play a much greater role in our lives, both physically and spiritually, than I had hitherto appreciated.

Second extract:
The Secret of the Golden Flower identifies our two divided parts like this:

The first is called Human Nature but also referred to as Consciousness. Jung called it the personal Logos and, if you like to think in terms of the divided Yin & Yang symbol, this is the Yang. It is connected with what the Chinese called the Heavenly Heart, said to reside in the ‘one square inch’ between the eyes. It may also be identified as Spirit.

The second component is known as Life – the Vital Breath (and many will be familiar with the Oriental terms Chi, Qi and Ki – the Vital Life Force). Jung called it the personal Eros. It is Yin and equates to Soul.
[End extract. For the entire article click HERE]

The whole point of the Golden Flower technique is to circulate the Light within your Self and reconnect the two inner components that have become separated. As my readers would expect, the Sun plays an integral part in doing this and generating your Light Body.

For readers who are feeling the impact of home isolation and perhaps suffering from an unfamiliar sense of loneliness, an important part of the Golden Flower work is that the elusive ‘ideal partner’ you may have been searching for over the years probably represents that inner part of yourself. You might be looking outwardly for the qualities you already posses within, and your inner heart may well be the perfect complement to your outer consciousness.


There is abundant evidence that the world is changing forever, right here, right now. ‘Preppers,’ who exist in greater number in the U.S., are claiming vindication for their way of life, while a number of respected financial commentators are predicting the economies of some countries will collapse completely. The main concern then would be maintaining law and order. That in turn would be a test of whether humankind chooses to follow the Light, or the Darkness.

It is not my intention here to make predictions. When I started publishing my online magazine Australian Esoteric three years ago, it was in the belief that the time would soon arrive when the world would undergo drastic changes, and I felt that some of us ought to light beacons now that might guide seekers through a period of darkness, and ensure that certain truths survive once the storm has passed.

We are living in an uncertain age. Our spiritual practices can help us evaluate and prepare for the impermanence, decay and inevitable death of our earthly existence. To quote the Desiderata, “No doubt the Universe is unfolding as it should.” The Sun is central not only to our solar system but also to human life itself.
I will write more in my next blog about practical ways to attune with its frequency.

The Inner Voice & the Y-Principle

Image result for gut feeling

Looking back over a rather eventful life, I can identify many turning points such as career changes, relocating home, travelling abroad, starting & ending relationships, buying & selling things, and undertaking challenging experiences. Invariably, decisions were based on what seemed right at the time, yet in retrospect, some choices proved fruitful while others appear less judicious.

I’ve always been one to follow the Inner Voice, in preference to agonizing intellectually for a long time over the pros and cons. The problem with that, I have come to realize, is that the Inner Voice can come either from a place of light where the higher Self dwells, or it can arise from a lower, dark place. Since Inner Voices seem to emanate from somewhere within the “Self,” the trick is to discern which is which. I have learned to apply what I call the Y-Principle.

In ancient times, Pythagoras adhered to the Y-Principle, a concept he brought back from his travels to Egypt. The Y signified the power of choice and represented the Forking of the Ways. It is a symbol of a central stem branching to the right, which was called Divine Wisdom, and to the left, which was referred to as Earthly Wisdom. At the point where the path divides, one can take the left-hand direction, following the dictates of the lower nature, or the right-hand road which leads to union with the higher spheres. The latter involved the use of intuition to recognize the invisible spirit of things, rather than their outwardly manifested forms.

During the five years I lived and worked in Taipei (1990-1995), I recall the media publicized the story of an old professor who persuaded the government to re-introduce a time-honoured concept into schools that he thought was in danger of being lost to the new generation: that of listening to “guidance” called the Inner Voice. Actually, in Taiwan it was called Liang-zhi. ‘Liang’ was translated into English as ‘intuitive,’ although it is also commonly understood to mean ‘good.’ Adding –zhi denoted a quality or sense. Together the words were interpreted by English speakers to be the Inner Voice.

When the Inner Voice speaks, how do we know whether it is what Pythagoras called our Divine Wisdom, which will lead to a happy outcome, or if it’s the Earthly Wisdom that is taking us down a path we may later regret? How do we apply this Y-Principle?

To begin with, we need to be able to identify the source of the message. Is it really coming from within us, or are we picking up on an external impulse? One thing I have learned during my time as a member of the Cosolargy system is that, just as there are light energies, there are also dark forces. I like to envisage all beings as being surrounded by a sphere, which is the ubiquitous universal form. At the centre of every sphere is a source of light; consider the Sun at the centre of the solar system (we also have a central galactic Sun); think of the nucleus at the centre of the atom; the earth has a super-hot core. If you picture the human torso and head (not including arms and legs) the heart is at the centre, and likewise the corresponding cardiac energy centre is near it, right at the centre of our spiritual sphere. Like a miniature Sun, it is what could be called our ‘solar heart.’ Once we know we are receiving a message from within our true Self, rather than from an outside energy, we may trust it.

How do we achieve that? When the Inner Voice speaks – challenge it, just as a sentry would ask, “Friend or Foe?” One of the hallmarks of intuition is that it comes with a sense of ‘knowing.’ You know what is ‘your own’ as opposed to what doesn’t belong to you. If the message is coming from an outside, darker force, chances are it is expressing itself through negative emotions such as anger, hurt, guilt, frustration or a sense of revenge. If, on the other hand, it originates from your authentic inner centre, it will feel good, it will feel right. It ‘rings true.’ If you are under the influence of emotions, you need to concentrate on becoming calm, freeing yourself from the negative power of dark thoughts and feelings. You must connect to the place within you where your destiny is being created, moment to moment. Then envision the outcome that would emerge as result of heeding the guidance. This picture should be bright and light, leading you to feel safe, secure and confident in the outcome.

In this process you learn to differentiate between messages from the heart, and the gut animal instinct. Instinct is an innate, hardwired tendency. We are all aware of involuntary processes such as the flight-or-fight syndrome. ‘Gut feeling’ is actually aptly named, since within the intestinal lining is the enteric nervous system. This is where millions of neurons are hiding, and they talk to your brain via the Vagus nerve.

Dark thoughts relate to the past and future, and carry a sense of dread and nervousness. The Inner Voice, however, focuses on the present, and its messages tend to feel neutral or calm. The mind suddenly discovers and knows that certain things are true without further investigation or inquiry, and proceeds to govern action upon the assumption of their truth.

Inner Voice communications are directive – they’re usually telling you what to do or what not to do, so they come across as a direction – or even an order. Often, intuitive messages begin with a verb, so you’ll feel or hear a ‘call to action.’

Your Earthly Wisdom, which operates differently, tends to wonder about things, asking “what if?” and “why?” rather than direct you towards taking action. So, the way the message comes through can help you know which branch of the Y principle is calling out to you.

There are two prongs to the Y-Principle to keep in mind:

Learn to recognize the messages of the Inner Voice, know when they are authentic, when they resonate with you, and when it is appropriate to follow them.

Learn to reject the dark messages of the left-hand path, whether from your own lower self or from outside sources.

My policy (or slogan, if you like) when it comes to the Inner Voice is:
Light is Right!

The Sun and the World Energy Supply

World's largest telescope takes most detailed image of Sun
Image credit: NSO/NSF/AURA

“Every two minutes, the energy reaching the Earth from the Sun is equivalent to the whole annual energy use of humanity. All the energy – the cars, lighting, and air conditioning of the world – in one year is equivalent to two minutes of the Sun.[1]
Sadly, we lack the technology to capture, store and distribute this amount of solar energy.

What if we really understood how the Sun worked? Could we then replicate its functions in a man-made device and supply the world’s needs in natural, safe, non-polluting way? Surprisingly, despite all the technological advances made over the past few centuries, the Sun has hitherto kept its inner workings secret from us.

You may have seen the picture at the top of this page as it was featured in the media over the past week, hailed as a great achievement for the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST) – the world’s largest solar telescope built on Haleakala, Hawaii. The image is a close-up view of the Sun’s surface, and the project aims to map & measure the magnetic fields within the Sun’s corona.

An article from The Watchers News website titled World’s largest telescope takes most detailed image of Sun (30 January 2020), points to what little we really know about the great solar Orb, which keeps us all alive. It includes this quote from Matt Mountain, president of the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (which manages the DKIST): “Our predictions lag behind terrestrial weather by 50 years, if not more. What we need is to grasp the underlying physics behind space weather, and this starts at the Sun…” Over four hundred years since Galileo first aimed a telescope at the Sun in 1612, mainstream scientists are still struggling to understand how stars and their planets are magnetically connected, and hope that by peering into those “structures” in the photograph, they might unravel “the Sun’s biggest mysteries.”

Dr Jamal Shrair posted the following comment online, right below the article:
The recent images from Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST) have further confirmed my proposed standard solar model. Namely, that the surface of the Sun is comprised of condensed matter. The brightness and velocity structure of the solar granulation based on the highest-resolution to date is a death blow to the gaseous plasma model of the Sun. I hope this latest finding can convince the mainstream to give up their dogmatic model and provides me with a chance to show them the model that explains all the features of the Sun and at the same time can be used to replicate its primary energy source.”

In separate correspondence with me, Dr Shrair has reiterated that the Sun is “powered externally,” i.e. it receives its energy from a source at a point beyond it, in the central magnetic generator of the galaxy. It is connected to the galaxy through its magnetic field. He stresses that the Sun is a condensed matter entity and its energy is focused from outside, and not expelled from inside. He declares that the information received from DKIST once again demonstrates “that the emperors of solar physics have no clothes.”

Furthermore, according to Jamal Shrair, the brightness of the Sun itself has increased in recent times. It is in a changed state and is burning more brightly than at any time during the past 1,000 years. Moreover, the plasma density was around 10 astronomical units in the early 1960s, but by the middle of the 1990s it became 100 astronomical units – a “massive increase in the overall brightness of the energy at the edge of the solar system.”

Jamal Shrair has designed a device, based on his unique insights into how the Sun really works, that will revolutionize the generation of safe, clean energy. As you might expect, the mainstream scientific community is not embracing this idea, and some have demanded that he provide them with written evidence of his discovery. From past experience, he has reason to be wary of them – so he is first taking out a patent, then will have the design tested, after which he intends to partner with a reputable manufacturer to get his invention on the market.

Following the wide coverage of the pictures from the Inouye Solar Telescope, Dr Jamal Shrair will be writing more on the topic in the coming days. It is my intention to assist him in getting his articles published and read by the public. I look forward to the successful development of his energy generator.

Galactic Beams:

The Sun & Cosmic Rays; Science & Prophecy.

Related image

Here we are in 2020. Some are embarking on the new decade with optimism, and others with apprehension. This week I have been looking to both science and prophecy for clues as to what we can expect. The key themes that caught my attention were: changes in the Sun and cosmic radiation; Earth changes, including earthquakes and volcanic eruptions; the coming of a new age and a new human.

Cosmic radiation has hit a five-year high and is approaching record high values, as the Sun sets a new record for spotlessness (days without sunspots), according to the record-keeping system that started when the Space Age began in 1957 (marked by the launch of the Soviet Union’s Sputnik). During 2019, the Sun was without spots for 270 days or 77% of the time (as of 16 December). The Sun’s magnetic field weakens during solar minimums, allowing deep space cosmic radiation to flood the Solar System.

The Earth’s magnetic field protects our planet from solar and cosmic rays that could be harmful, like a giant shield. As the planetary poles move around, that shield is weakened – scientists estimate that it could waste away to as little as a tenth of its usual force. The expected Cosmic radiation isn’t hitting the surface yet. But at some point, when the magnetic field has dwindled enough, it will be a different story.

The dangers: potentially devastating streams of particles from the Sun, galactic cosmic rays, and enhanced ultraviolet B rays from a radiation-damaged ozone layer, are just a few of the invisible forces that could harm or kill living creatures.

So, the magnetic field is shifting; the poles may flip; the shield that protects Earth from solar radiation is losing strength. How bad could it get? Well, according to worldometers.info there are over 7.755 Billion people on Earth today. In recent centuries we humans have drastically changed the chemistry of the atmosphere and the ocean with our activities, impairing the life support system of the planet. We have built huge cities, industries and networks of roads, cutting off access to safer living spaces for many other creatures in the process. We have pushed up to a third of all known species toward extinction and have imperiled the habitats of many more. Add cosmic and ultraviolet radiation into the mix, and the consequences for life on Earth could be dire.

It is helpful to know a little more about how the Sun, and our Solar System, works. Scientist Jamal Shrair has explained that the Sun, and all the planets along with it, travels along through the Milky Way in a helical pattern, rather than going around flatly on a dish-shaped plane. In other words, imagine the Solar System as a whole unit (technically it is the ‘Heliosphere’), winding its way like a corkscrew along the galactic plane. As the Sun spirals up and down in the galaxy, the intensity of its magnetic field fluctuates greatly. When it spirals up to its highest point above the galactic plane, the intensity of its magnetic field reaches its ultimate strength and, when it reaches its lowest point below the galactic plane, the opposite is true.

In his book Helical Universe, Dr Shrair writes, “There is a long list of observations from the last one hundred years (especially in the last three decades) to show that the Sun is approaching its highest point above the galactic plane. The magnetic field of the Sun has increased in strength by more than 230% during the 20th century alone. The change in the Sun’s magnetic field is also obvious from solar cycle activities, timing and duration, which physicists are no longer able to explain (solar minimums and solar maximums).”

So, that’s where things stand from a scientific point of view. What have psychically-gifted people predicted?

In light of current events going on in the world today, many people have been looking anew at a prophecy made 75 years ago by a man who was called ‘The Master’ by his followers. Peter Konstantinov Deunov, better-known by his spiritual name Beinsa Douno (born 1864), was a Bulgarian philosopher and spiritual teacher who developed a form of Esoteric Christianity known as the ‘Universal White Brotherhood.’

He left a prophecy that he obtained while in a state of trance, just a week before he passed away in December 1944. This prophecy seems to fit the times we are going through right now, in relation to the shift in consciousness, the earth-changes and the anticipated coming of a Golden Age. He made it clear that the events he saw would occur some decades after his time. Following are a few selected paragraphs from his “Last Word.” To read the whole text, go HERE.

A gradual improvement is already occurring in the thoughts, sentiments and acts of humans, but everybody will soon be subjugated to divine Fire, that will purify and prepare them in regards to the New Era. Thus man will raise himself to a superior degree of consciousness, indispensable to his entrance to the New Life. That is what one understands by ‘Ascension’. Some decades will pass before this Fire will come, that will transform the world by bringing it a new moral. This immense wave comes from cosmic space and will inundate the entire earth. All those that attempt to oppose it will be carried off and transferred elsewhere. Although the inhabitants of this planet do not all find themselves at the same degree of evolution, the new wave will be felt by each one of us. And this transformation will not only touch the Earth, but the ensemble of the entire Cosmos.”


“Everything that is around you will soon collapse and disappear. Nothing will be left of this civilization nor its perversity; the entire earth will be shaken and no trace will be left of this erroneous culture that maintains men under the yoke of ignorance. Earthquakes are not only mechanical phenomena, their goal is also to awaken the intellect and the heart of humans, so that they liberate themselves from their errors and their follies and that they understand that they are not the only ones in the universe.”


“Our solar system is now traversing a region of the Cosmos where a constellation that was destroyed left its mark, its dust. This crossing of a contaminated space is a source of poisoning, not only for the inhabitants of the earth, but for all the inhabitants of the other planets of our galaxy. Only the suns are not affected by the influence of this hostile environment.”


“The New Era is that of the sixth race. Your predestination is to prepare yourself for it, to welcome it and to live it. The sixth race will build itself around the idea of Fraternity. There will be no more conflicts of personal interests; the single aspiration of each one will be to conform himself to the Law of Love. The sixth race will be that of Love. A new continent will be formed for it. It will emerge from the Pacific, so that the Most High can finally establish His place on this planet […] The words “If you are not born again” apply to the sixth race.”


“A new culture will see the light of day, it will rest on three principal foundations: the elevation of woman, the elevation of the meek and humble, and the protection of the rights of man […] Under the earth, something extraordinary is preparing itself. A revolution that is grandiose and completely inconceivable will manifest itself soon in nature.”


On the subject of geological upheavals, aside from earthquakes, volcanic activity is always a concern and I will finish here back in the sphere of science rather than prophecy: Dr Jamal Shrair has written an article for The Watchers in the past few days (see reference below), in which he says, in part: “I have been saying for years that global volcanic activity is on the rise and it’s now obvious that volcanoes are erupting at a faster pace, not only around the ring of fire but also around the entire globe. Even dormant and extinct volcanoes are becoming active again.”

Dr Shrair goes on to list a number of volcanoes that are stirring at present, in regions such as Italy, Chile, PNG, Africa and Indonesia (which has several). I know from following the weekly volcano round-up published by The Watchers that there are many more under observation, including those in Japan. And of course we are all painfully aware of the recent eruption of the White Island volcano in New Zealand.

He continues: “The first question anyone would ask is why there is an increase in volcanic activity? And secondly, why are even dormant volcanoes becoming active? And how can a dead volcano come back to life? If you are going to ask these questions to any mainstream geologist or geophysicist, you are not going to get real scientific answers. Because there is no way these questions can be explained with current theories. This is the reason why the mainstream has averted the issue altogether. But, of course, all geophysicists, especially volcanologists know very well that there is a massive increase in volcanic activities. This fact is overwhelmingly clear from short- and long-term statistics.”

In the end, the best we can do is be prepared – mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

The Sun and Your Cycles of Fortune

Image result for cycles of fortune

As someone who has belonged to the mystical Rosicrucian fraternity for 25 years and studied the system of Cosolargy for 5 years, some of my less spiritually-inclined friends think I am disinterested in the practicalities of the day-to-day secular world. That is not the case. Mysticism is in a fact a very practical application and, for me at least, the goal of any spiritual pursuit must be to improve one’s life. These undertakings need to be rewarding and enjoyable if they are to fulfill their purpose.

Over the years I have learned some beneficial techniques from various sources, some of which are only revealed to initiates after careful preparation, and others that are available to the general public, at least in a condensed version. One field that is always of popular interest is how to attract good fortune, i.e. success in health, wealth, career and relationships.

There is no doubt that we humans have free will. Some people complain that they always have bad luck or are doomed to constantly suffer for no apparent reason. Naturally there are occurrences in this world that are beyond your control but, when it comes to how you react to adverse situations and how you chart the course of your life in the most favourable direction, there are only two possibilities: you are either the master of your destiny, or you are a victim of fate.

Most humans on this planet are conscious that their lives are governed by cycles and rhythms. Nikola Tesla said that if we wanted to understand the universe we should think in terms of vibration and frequency. Unquestionably, the frequencies and cycles that primarily govern our lives are those of the Sun and the Moon. We measure their movement, in relationship to the rotation of planet Earth, on our clocks and calendars and, in doing so, the numbers twelve and seven appear prominently. Today I want to show how cycles of SEVEN may be applied usefully.

The number seven has always held great significance for those interested in mysticism. According to Manly P Hall, it is because humankind is controlled by seven celestial spirits – which I assume correspond to the seven rays expounded by the Theosophists. For those who are religiously inclined, the ancient Jews numbered the Elohim as being seven, while Christians count seven archangels. Lest we stray into the realms of superstition, let’s look at some ways in which SEVEN influences our lives, that we may not have considered before.

Many readers will already be aware that our entire lives can be segmented roughly into seven-years lots. Like many others, I can pinpoint major changes that I underwent in my own life at the ages of 7, 14, 21 and so on. Also, it is said that our physical bodies replace dead cells with new ones in such a way that our bodies are completely reconstituted every seven years.

Breaking that down even further, we can look at each year of our lives as seven periods of 52 days each… we are of course used to doing that the other way around, i.e. 52 weeks comprising seven days each. If you’d like to continue following this line of thought, it needs to be done individually. In other words, don’t take the start of the year, for this particular purpose, as being 1st January, but begin on your own birthday. Rather than make this blog really long, you can find one example of this calculation online HERE. When looking at it, you will notice that the fifth period of 52-days is said to be the most successful, while the seventh cycle is described as being the “most critical.”

But here is the cycle that will probably be of most interest to the reader, due to its more immediate relevance and ease of application: this is the Daily Cycle which divides each 24-hour period into seven segments of approximately 3 hours and 25 minutes each, with each of these mini-cycles influencing us in noticeable ways. Here is what you need to know: you must use the time zone where you live; if your area is on daylight savings time, ignore it and use the normal time (which is based on GMT +/- for your zone).

Next, you will notice that the influences prevailing over each time period are not the same every day – it changes according to the day of the week. Below is a ready-reckoner, and after that is a brief description of the impulses and affects you can expect from each of the seven daily cycles, on any given day of the week. For the following table I have drawn on the work of H. Spencer Lewis PhD (1883-1939) and, for those interested in reading his full explanation of this Daily Cycle in his book Self Mastery and Fate with the Cycles of Life, you can download a PDF copy HERE. Dr Lewis noted that the letters corresponded with the seven musical notes A to G.

Here is a brief summary of each of the seven Daily Cycles.
A: This is the time to come up with new plans; ask favours of persons in high positions; build up legal & financial relationships or ask for a stay in legal proceedings. It is not a good time to loan people money, especially for business ventures; to discuss marital problems or to have surgery.

B: This is a good period for art, music, drama or sensual affairs. It is a good time for things happening in a social way; for hiring staff or engaging agents; an excellent time for buying livestock or collecting outstanding accounts. It’s not a great time to depart on long journeys or setting new long-term ambitions.

C: This time of day is good for education, study, scientific research, printing, publishing and writing important letters. It is also good for getting therapy or taking medicine. But it is negative for getting married or dealing in real estate. Be on guard against fraudsters.

D: This period is fortuitous for marriage, farming (especially planting), having surgical operations, setting off on journeys, and for all kinds of maritime interests including shipping and transport. It is not favourable for signing legal documents, borrowing loans or starting a new venture.

E: This is a good time for going to court; for starting serious new pursuits that you’ve long been thinking about; starting sales & advertising promotions and moving into a new house. But it’s bad for speculating on the stock market, making new contracts other than real estate, and not a good time for new farming operations/planting, or commencing journeys by water.

F: This is the most fortunate part of the day, the “lucky period.” Good for starting new business, signing new contracts, meeting new people, collecting or raising money, buying and selling real estate, marriage, literary work, legal affairs, seeking favours, setting out on journeys. They only things it doesn’t seem to favour are transport/shipping of goods or the hiring of junior/menial workers.

G: This is the time to undertake affairs that require more physical exertion than thinking. It favours aggressiveness, endurance and persistency. It will be successful for dealing with mechanical problems, inventions, building plans and scientific pursuits. It is not a positive period for humanitarian activities, for receiving gifts or favours, and it can be a time of accidents or illness – be careful to avoid being in risky situations.

Whether you are aware of it or not, the Sun is the primary driving force for all the cycles, rhythms and frequencies on our planet and the beings who inhabit it. I have written in my book Here Comes the Sun about our 28-day biorhythms, which start from your day of birth and whose composition of 4 weeks times 7 days roughly correspond with the Lunar cycle. The most pronounced effects produced by the 28-day cycle are on our Psyche. There are websites which enable you to produce a tailor-made biorhythm chart, and which help explain why you are experiencing life the way you are on any particular day, and give you an insight on the days that will be beneficial to your plans, and those that will be adverse.

King Solomon wrote, in the Book of Ecclesiastes:
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heavens: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to reap that which is planted.

Solar Crop Circles

Are We Ignoring Messages from the Sun?

The Six Suns Crop Circle at Mixon, Nr Etchilhampton, Wiltshire. on 10th August 2018

Crop Circles have been a source of derision for some years now among the general ‘consensus reality’ tribes. Whenever I mention them to my sceptical friends, I am usually greeted with something like, “Don’t you know that was all proved fake years ago when those two old English farmers confessed they had been doing it as a hoax?” (Referring to Doug Bower and Dave Chorley in 1991). That’s despite hundreds of Circles continuing to appear all around the world every year since then – with France being the new “hot spot” this year. I don’t know if Doug’n’Dave are still alive but, if they are, they must be fairly fatigued by now.

Two things rekindled my interest in Crop Circles this week. One was on an episode of Ancient Aliens (History Channel) – demonstrating Cymatics – where sand was spread over a metal plate and subjected to sound waves at a certain frequency to produce organized patterns (which could be how Crop Circles are produced). The other was a book – part of The Awakening series (2017) – by local author Pane Andov I had been re-reading, and in which he connected certain Crop Circles to the Sun.

According to Andov, there was supposed to be a noticeable change in our Sun in December 2012, in accordance with the end of a 5,126-year cycle of the Mayan long-count calendar, but it was thwarted by dark forces. This involved, in part, massive planet-sized UFOs sucking plasma out of our Sun, which I had also blogged about in February 2017 and April 2016 .

In the same book, Andov analyzed Crop Circles which he said demonstrated a transition between the Fifth Sun and the Sixth Sun, or dying of the old Sun and rebirth of the new Sun. He expresses disappointment the predicted geological changes did not occur in December 2012. Like many others, he had expected an ‘overnight’ ascension. However, I think if we could project ourselves into the future, we would look back at the present time, as we roll from the second decade of this century into the 2020s, as being the short period in which the old humanity began to disappear and the New Humans emerged on planet Earth.

I have a book by Gareth J Owen called Crop Circles, Lights & Orbs which I recommend to anyone interested in the subject. Owen’s style is witty and entertaining and, while he is the first to admit there are many hoaxes, his investigations led him to conclude much stranger things exist than he had previously imagined, as his attention was equally drawn to the phenomenon of Orbs. I am personally convinced that the increased sightings of Spheres and Orbs are connected to the Sun, and they may well be what has been termed Intelligent Plasma.

What has been said about UFOs also applies to Crop Circles: consider that if just one – just one – of the thousands of reported incidents is actually the result of extraterrestrial and/or interdimensional intelligence, does that not change everything currently accepted by the mainstream as being the ‘truth’?

According to author Freddy Silva on his Invisible Temple website, “Eighty people have witnessed crop circles manifesting in less than fifteen seconds. Many describe a descending tube of light that rotates and bends the plants without causing any damage.” He goes on to add, “people cannot steam plants at right angles without damage, alter the local gravitational field, change the mineral structure of the soil, encode unknown mathematical theorems, or apply permanent electro-magnetic signatures when attempting to replicate crop circles.”

My interest is in the Crop Circles that are said to be giving us information on the new Sun. Over the past two decades some Crop Circles have incorporated an aspect known as the ‘Mayan connection,’ based on themes from the Aztec-Mayan culture.

There is evidence that whoever, or whatever created these Crop Circles designed them as time-pieces for the current era by means of an ancient Sun-Venus calendar that the Mayans and Aztecs used in central America long ago, along with their famous Long Count calendar. Both calendars appeared in the English Crop Circles pictured below: one at Silbury Hill in 2004; the other at Woolstone Hill in 2005. 

Is it coincidence that these images appeared at this particular time in history, just as one five-millennia-old Mayan Sun ends and another begins? The Long Count calendar ended on December 21, 2012, marking an end to the Fifth Sun which had begun on August 13, 3114 BC. Likewise, their Sun-Venus calendar ended on March 28, 2013, marking an end to the 52-year cycle of Venus which had begun on April 10, 1961, and also marking the start of the new 5000-year cycle of the Sixth Sun.

The Phoenix Crop Circle (below) that appeared in Wiltshire in 2009 also belongs in the ‘Solar’ category. According to Crop Circle enthusiasts, in that picture, our old Sun has been compared metaphorically to the ancient phoenix bird, which lays its eggs in fire and then dies. From the ashes, a new phoenix or new Sun is born. Thus, it was alerting us to the advent of the Sixth Sun. The avian element is also relevant, as I wrote in my article The Rise of the Sun Bird in the new edition of Australian Esoteric Magazine #26.

The points I am offering here for your consideration are:
Even if you didn’t notice it, the Sun renewed itself in December 2012.
The Sun may be both conscious and intelligent.
We are vanguards of the new epoch of the Sixth Sun.
Solar Crop Circles contain messages that we should be trying to interpret, while we can.

We ignore these messages at our peril!

The Heart – The Inner Sun


The Movie titled Time of the Sixth Sun was re-released online this week and I watched it again, although I have not viewed all the accompanying short videos that are being released each day after it. I find the ideas contained in it to be a bit scattered, and each of the guests who appear in it express diverse opinions that relate to whatever discipline they practice – they all agree that a new age is upon us, however the details of it are fairly sketchy.

They start out on the right track when, at about 11 to 13 minutes into the 1hr 50min movie, Dan Schreiber says (and I must paraphrase, this is not verbatim) The Sun is a living energetic being; the heart is like an internal Sun. He is followed immediately by Peruvian elder Jorge Luis Delgado who makes reference to Father Sun, telling us We can send the Sun’s energy to all the cells in our body – which are like little Suns – to awaken the body so you can experience the Light in you, the Light that you are.

The other guest I enjoyed hearing from was Drunvalo Melchizedek, whose work I have followed for many years, including his book Living in the Heart. At one point in the film he declares that the heart is a portal. I have written in other articles about how our Sun is also a portal, and that the golden orb we see in the sky has an unseen counterpart that is the source of our life energy. Philo of Alexandria called it The Sun of the Sun – Ancient Egyptian and Greek teachers said the Sun we see is just the physical form of a higher ‘Intelligible or Spiritual Sun.’

In the same way, people have always taken it for granted that there is an invisible counterpart to the human heart. When we talk about our ‘heart of hearts,’ or not ‘having the heart for something,’ or giving our heart away in love, we are not talking about the bodily organ that pumps blood around our system, are we? Note how often people point to their heart when referring to themselves. It corresponds to the notion of putting your ‘heart and soul’ into something.

The sketch at the top of this page is from the 17th century Hermetic philosopher Robert Fludd, who taught that the intelligible heart was in fact a ‘little Sun’ within the human being, connected to, and animated by, the great Sun we see in the sky. Fludd’s perception was informed by his medical training and firsthand understanding of human anatomy. He naturally compared the position of the Sun to the position of the heart after having observed that each object was located at the mathematical centre of their respective domains. It was on this assumption that Fludd conceived of the circulation of the blood – although it was his friend and colleague William Harvey who is credited as the first known physician to publicly describe this completely in detail.

In the past I have written articles about how the best way to absorb Sun-light is through the eyes, but lately I have had some adverse reaction to that from commentators on social media, and I respect that. You should not try Sun-gazing without the correct training and supervision (I always add that caveat, but it seems to get ignored). The good news is that we also absorb the Sun’s rays through our skin – in fact, that’s acknowledged as the best way to obtain vitamin D. You don’t need to get yourself sunburnt – just 20 minutes exposure around mid-morning on sunny days is advisable.

While we are receiving the Sun on the physical level, we are also benefitting from the Sun behind the Sun, i.e. its spiritual energy. It must be acknowledged that there is a right and a wrong way to receive the Sun’s Light, which is why I joined the organization known as Cosolargy – they teach the same techniques that were practiced in Ancient Egypt and South America. What I can say here is that the Sun should always be approached with respect in your heart, keeping in mind the words at the beginning of this article that it is a living energetic being.

Once this energy reaches your inner being, it may be circulated throughout your psychic self and your whole electromagnetic field, by means of the inner heart, that mini-Sun that lights you from within. When discussing these matters it is natural to consider the solar plexus, by virtue of its very name. This cluster is described as ‘solar’ because of its radiating nerve fibres and it follows that its energetic counterpart is also a centre for radiation, used by spiritual healers and light-workers. So, the inner heart receives and circulates the power of the Higher Sun, while the force centre located behind the solar plexus allows us to distribute and share it with those around us.

Today I was scouting around on the internet to compare what others have to say on the subject and found the diagram below on a website belonging to Padmacahaya, which is interesting as they go to some length to pinpoint the ‘location’ of the inner heart, so I will finish with that image as additional food for thought on the unseen centres of power.

Solar Fire and Ice

The Climatic Effects of our Sun and its Brown Dwarf Companion

Among the many articles that landed in my in-box this week was a piece originally posted on the website of Electroverse.net, speculating that the record number of days without sunspots this year (“spotless days”) predicts a Grand Solar Minimum that will lead into another mini-ice-age – to start in the 2030s and unfold over the ensuing decades.

Over the past few years I have been following this theory, and six months ago in issue #23 of my online magazine Australian Esoteric, I included a brief summary of some of my blogs on the matter, under the heading Insights into the Prediction of a Mini Ice Age. (I drew a lot of information from the Russian theoretical astrophysicist Valentina Zharkova, whose work is readily available on You-Tube). While such a scenario – already dubbed the Eddy Minimum (after the late John Allen “Jack” Eddy) – may well still eventuate, I have received some advice from scientist Jamal Shrair setting me straight on this.

Dr Shrair has reminded me that mainstream physicists do not understand that solar cycles depend on the external energy supply that the Sun receives. As soon as that extensive supply decreases, massive sunspots can be formed in just a matter of a few days – i.e. the “spotless” period could come to an end very suddenly. He stands by his claim that we should experience a destructive solar flare by next year (2020).

An important factor in understanding Jamal Shrair’s work is knowing that our Sun has a companion Brown Dwarf star, and some scientists have already referred to it over recent years by the name of Nemesis. As far as I can tell, it is probably also the celestial body that has been hailed by others as Planet X, coming in toward us from the Oort Cloud on the outer side of the Heliosphere. Brown Dwarfs are hard to see.

This should not surprise us – our closest neighbouring stars are binaries. The nearest to us is Alpha Centauri (4.3 light years away) which is a triple star system, and another close neighbour (at 8.7 light years away), Sirius – which is also the brightest in our sky – is a binary system. It is speculated that up to 85% of stars in the universe are in binary systems, with some in triple or even higher-multiple systems. Jamal Shrair looks at the big picture and notes that stars do not exist independently of one another, but rather in groups and clusters. He says that our Sun seems to be a ‘subpart’ of the Pleiades system.

So not only are our climate and geological events under the effect of our Sun, but also its companion Brown Dwarf. I asked Jamal Shrair when it might become visible to us here on Earth and he responded, “I believe it should be seen by space watchers by next year 2020, its impact on the earth and especially on the planets at the far end of the solar system is already obvious. However, when it gets near its orbital speed will increase and also, it becomes detectable. since it will start reflecting the light of the Sun.”

He goes on to point out that current science always measures the impacts of celestial bodies in terms of their gravitational impact, but in reality, the impacts are magnetic and, brown dwarfs – being very dense – possess very strong magnetic fields. He sees this as our biggest concern and says that as the Sun’s companion gets closer, the stress on Earth’s magnetic field will increase, resulting in huge geological and climate events – which are hard for us to imagine right now.

Another email to hit my in-box this week was an announcement by Theo van Dort about the re-release of the movie Time of the Sixth Sun on 6th November. Interested readers may want to Google that. The thing I really want to stress is, regardless of whether we experience a huge solar flare next year, or head into a mini-ice-age a decade from now, or both, it is time we understood that our Sun is not exactly the way it has been explained to us by mainstream science.

Regarding the ‘Sixth Sun’ concept – according to Wikipedia: “The term Five Suns in the context of creation myths, describes the doctrine of the Aztec and other Nahua peoples in which the present world was preceded by four other cycles of creation and destruction. […] the central tenet was that there had been four worlds, or “Suns”, before the present universe. These earlier worlds and their inhabitants had been created, then destroyed by the catastrophic action of leading deity figures. The present world is the fifth Sun, and the Aztec saw themselves as “the People of the Sun,” whose divine duty was to wage cosmic war in order to provide the sun with his tlaxcaltiliztli (nourishment). Without it, the Sun would disappear from the heavens.”

If the potential world upheavals concern you and you sense that our Sun is changing, I invite you to investigate the system of COSOLARGY and see if it resonates with you.

When the Sun Spins in the Sky

The crowds at Fátima wait for a miracle on Oct. 13, 1917.
(Image credit: Public domain)

Last Sunday was the anniversary of an event known as The Miracle of the Sun that occurred at Fatima, Portugal, a hundred-and-two years ago. Lest you think the event was isolated or insignificant, I would like to mention other cases of similar Solar Miracles that I have explored and written about in the past, including: Medjugorje in Bosnia; Georgia, USA; Misamis Oriental, Philippines.

My personal experience had led me to understand that, once you come to see the Sun is not a ball of fire in the sky, but an intelligent sphere of plasma having its origins in higher dimensions, you are able to establish a rapport with it if you wish. If you are not familiar with the four examples below, take a few minutes to read over the facts and see if you begin to sense there is more to the majestic Solar Orb than you’ve previously acknowledged.

The Miracle of the Sun occurred just after midday on Sunday 13th October 1917, witnessed by a large crowd gathered near Fátima, Portugal. Estimates of the number of people present range from 30,000 to 40,000 (by Avelino de Almeida, writing for the Portuguese newspaper O Século), up to 100,000 (estimated by Dr. Joseph Garrett, professor of natural sciences at the University of Coimbra), both of whom were present on that day, along with several newspaper reporters who took testimony from people who saw the extraordinary solar activity. The event was visible by onlookers up to 18 kilometres away, precluding the theory of a collective hallucination or mass hysteria, and Pope Pius XII himself witnessed the Miracle of the Sun from the Vatican gardens.

Of the very many vivid accounts recorded by the noted Father John De Marchi, here are a couple of examples:
The silver Sun, enveloped in the same gauzy grey light, was seen to whirl and turn in the circle of broken clouds … The light turned a beautiful blue, as if it had come through the stained-glass windows of a cathedral, and spread itself over the people who knelt with outstretched hands.” (By a reporter for the Lisbon newspaper O Dia).
As if like a bolt from the blue, the clouds were wrenched apart, and the Sun at its zenith appeared in all its splendour. It began to revolve vertiginously on its axis, like the most magnificent firewheel that could be imagined, taking on all the colours of the rainbow and sending forth multicoloured flashes of light, producing the most astounding effect. This sublime and incomparable spectacle, which was repeated three distinct times, lasted for about ten minutes.” (By priest Dr Manuel Formigão).

Medjugorje is a town located in the Herzegovina region of Bosnia and Herzegovina, close to the border of Croatia. On the 24th June 1981 the town experienced something akin to Fatima, with the Sun dancing in the sky and six children claiming to have received a message delivered from the Virgin Mary. The messages attributed to ‘Our Lady of Medjugorje’ have a strong following worldwide – they are still being received up to the present day, and a number of websites have recorded the messages.  The town has become one of the most popular pilgrimage sites for Catholics in the world and each year more than 1 million people visit. It is estimated that 30 million pilgrims have gone there since the 1981 event.

Many attendees have reported visual phenomena including the Sun spinning in the sky, flickering and strobing or changing colour, with figures such as hearts and crosses circling around the solar disc. A lot of witnesses say they are able to look directly at the shining orb without suffering eye damage. Jesuit Father Robert Faricy has written about his own experience of such phenomena, saying, “Yet I have seen rosaries which have changed colour, and I have looked directly at the Sun in Medjugorje and have seen it seem to spin and turn different colours. It would be easier to report that it is just hysteria except that I would then have to accuse myself of being hysterical, which I was not and am not.”
Many people have recorded the strange solar events on camera and their footage can be found on YouTube. Of course, there those who claim that the pictures have been tampered with, but then how do the images happen to concur with what thousands of eye-witnesses are saying they are seeing?

There is another case of similar occurrences in the town of Conyers, Georgia, USA, where according to a New York Times report in 1998, “Worshipers pray and sing, and aim their camcorders at the sky, hoping to record the flickering of the Sun or perhaps the opening of the door to heaven.”  At the centre of it all is a middle-aged mother, Nancy Fowler, and she – like others where such happenings occur – also claims to communicate with the Virgin Mary.

At noon on the thirteenth day of every month, thousands of people who have come from all parts of the world, gather at Conyers to watch the event. They report that the Sun becomes pure white light and that a smaller white disc sometimes circles it.  The solar disc also ‘blinks.’  It is said that on some occasions golden powder or rose petals fall from the sky.

Video of the solar phenomenon has been caught on camera and posted to YouTube – concurring with what witnesses say they actually see. Mrs Fowler says that Mary tells her to warn us about an impending war with China. Maybe that is the third mysterious secret of Fatima that has been hushed up by the Vatican?


The Divine Mercy Shrine, which is located in Divine Mercy Hills, El Salvador City, Misamis Oriental, Philippines is yet another prominent location where this occurs. At the initial gathering on what has become known as Divine Mercy Sunday, in April 2001, a rainbow first appeared over the head of statue of Jesus and along with an inexplicable phenomenon – more than 10,000 attendees witnessed an astonishing solar event that took place and continues to occur on subsequent Feast Days of the Divine Mercy. It is seen with the naked eye – the Sun’s changing forms and colour. The Sun is said to look like an opaque disk that is ‘spinning like a pinwheel in the sky.’ This miraculously claimed phenomenon is considered by the religious (Christian) Filipino population to be a ‘divine and supernatural manifestation.’

One website which incorporates a video of the event reports that, “The clouds broke, and from behind the mountains, the Sun came out as an opaque disc in the sky. The Sun danced, changed colours, spun like a pinwheel, and made a most sensational demonstration.”

I am uncertain why these events are often linked with the Virgin Mary – is it because of the Catholic predisposition of the host countries, or is something more going on? But it does demonstrate there is an interaction taking place between earthly mortals and the solar disc.

Will the Sun Lash Out at Us?

I write a lot about the benefits of the Sun, and feel just a twinge of sadness as I must also acknowledge that, just like the reputation of the Hindu deity Shiva, our star may be thought of as both Creator and Destroyer. It has lashed out at our planet in the past by way of solar flares causing geomagnetic storms, and some believe we are due for another massive one.

Recently I have exchanged emails with Dr Jamal Shrair and acquired a copy of his book, Helical Universe. Dr Shrair has told me, “As I have indicated many times before, the Sun is now located in high energy region and approaching the most dense one, therefore, the chance for massive solar flare is almost certain and it is going to be a devastating one.” He later added, “A destructive solar flare is certain, and it will hit in the near future.” To clarify what he means by the near future, he posted elsewhere that it will happen “for sure if not this year then next year.”

It becomes clear when reading Jamal Shrair’s work that even as scientists make new discoveries, there is reluctance by them to discard certain outdated notions that have become ‘sacred’ to the mainstream – a point in question being the so-called speed of light. One example of the ‘helical nature’ of our universe is that photons of light travel in a helical path. Science has based its calculations of distances on light travelling in a straight line from the Sun to Earth. This being the case, Dr Shrair reasons that those little photons of light must actually be moving faster than previously thought – and the Sun itself must be considerably closer to us than the currently assumed 150 million kilometres.

As part of his explanations of how our whole solar system follows a helical trajectory through the galaxy, Jamal Shrair asserts that the Sun is the primary factor in climate changes taking place on Earth (just as it is on all the other planets in our solar system at the same time). He is not alone in saying this – it was expressed by Dr Alexey Dmitriev about 20 years ago in his work, The Planetophysical State of the Earth and Life, where he wrote that there is external energy coming from interstellar space, which produces ‘hybrid processes and excited energy states in the Sun’ (as well as all the planets). Dmitriev stated in 1998, “The climatic and biosphere processes here on Earth (through a tightly connected feedback system) are directly impacted by, and linked back to, the general overall transformational processes taking place in our Solar System. We must begin to organize our attention and thinking to understand that climatic changes on Earth are only one part, or link, in a whole chain of events taking place in our Heliosphere.”

Dmitriev later added, “The adaptive responses of the biosphere, and humanity, to these new conditions may lead to a total global revision of the range of species and life on Earth.”

My readers will probably already be aware of the Carrington Event of 1859 (if not, Google it). It was a massive solar flare that caused a lot of damage to the electrical and communications (telegraph) grid at the time. In today’s electrically dependent modern world, a similar scale solar storm would have catastrophic consequences. It would emit X-rays and ultraviolet light, which would interfere with electronics, as well as disrupting GPS satellites and blacking out radio communication on Earth. This would mean outages that would decommission everything from mobile phones and computers to automobiles and airplanes.

Such disturbances penetrate into the upper atmosphere (ionosphere) and cause auroras, which damage electrical power grids and can contribute to the erosion of oil and gas pipelines. (During a geomagnetic storm in 1989, for instance, Canada’s Hydro-Quebec power grid collapsed within 90 seconds, leaving millions without power). The cooling systems of nuclear power plants would also be compromised, causing them to release radioactivity into the environment, in Fukushima-type situations. A longer-term outage would likely include disruption of the transportation, communication, banking, and finance systems, as well as government services; the breakdown of the distribution of potable water owing to pump failure; and the loss of perishable foods and medications because of lack of refrigeration. Simply using a credit or debit card to pay for purchases in a store or at the gas pump requires a satellite transaction, the connection of which would no longer be possible.

In such a ‘solar explosion,’ a cloud of charged particles known as a coronal mass ejection (CME) would bump against Earth’s magnetic field and propel a burst of radiation into our atmosphere. Electric fluctuations at ground level could blow out transformers in power grids, leaving cities without power for weeks or months. There is a tendency these days to assess disasters in terms of money. For those who need to think in terms of currency to grasp the proportions of such a disaster, researchers in the U.S. reckon it would cost that country alone trillions of dollars in the first year, with full recovery taking up to ten years.

In my first blog in this series, three months ago, I wrote of the anticipation by many people of “The Event.” [preparing-for-the-event-what-will-it-mean-for-australia]. There are those who foresee a largescale ascension of humanity in 2020, and some of them believe we must first endure a cataclysm of some description – not the annihilation of the world, but an event that would force a restructure of humanity or, as Alexey Dmitriev said (above), lead to conditions that bring about “a total global revision of the range of species and life on Earth.”

Will our Sun lash out at us and, if so, could that be the catalyst for such an Event? Personally, I am not able to make a prediction on either the scale or date of such a massive solar flare, but if Jamal Shrair is right, then being forewarned is to be forearmed – without having to go all-out and become a “Preppie.” As a student of Cosolargy, I have come to understand that the Sun is changing, and we are changing with it, on a psychic and spiritual plane, if not on the physical level as well.

Lest it appear that I am predicting doom for planet Earth, I should balance this Blog with the more positive possibility put forward by Dr Robert Schoch and his wife, researcher Katie Ulissey, in the article “Is Our Sun Conscious?” (New Dawn Special Issue Vol.10 No.6). In it, they discuss the fact that the only reason the massive Solar Superstorm event of July 2012 did not devastate our society was that it was directed away from earth. They speculate that not only our Solar Orb, but all stars, might be conscious – and that consciousness may not be restricted to carbon-based forms of biological organisms. It would follow then, that the Sun may have purposefully released its energy discharge a week or so before it would be facing our world.

If this was the case, then it would not necessarily rule out the possibility of a coming world-changing event, but might lessen the severity of it on those of us living here on planet Earth. And I’m sure that my dear friend Valerie Barrow would happily concur that this scenario is more in line with her latest posted message from the Cosmic Sai Baba, that “there will not be a major holocaust upon this planet.”

Let’s remain positive that any imminent changes will be for the better and, if Old Sol is indeed conscious, that it will impart its lessons to us leniently. If an upgrade to the Human realm is upon us, may it be accomplished with the parental love and beneficence of the Sun!
