Life on Venus: Not So Farfetched

In my last blog I mentioned the vagueness of human history further back than 10,000 years before present. Early this week I was inspired to write about Venus, after being reminded how the proponents of the Electric Universe theory refer to the “birth of Venus” 10,000 years ago. The news today that scientists now acknowledge there might be life (according to their definition of life) on our sister planet, adds an interesting twist to the story.

The announcement on the scientific front was made by the Royal Astronomical Society in a press conference on Monday, following the discovery of phosphine on Venus. The gas is considered a ‘key biosignature,’ and the astrobiology community concede its presence in the Venusian clouds may indicate the presence of ‘aerial’ life high in the planet’s skies.

To outline the case briefly: here on Earth, phosphine is produced by microbial life in an ‘anaerobic’ process (without oxygen), and the concentration in our atmosphere is in the parts-per-trillion range. The much higher concentration on Venus, at 20 parts-per-billion, cannot be ignored. Phosphine also exists on Jupiter and Saturn, but can be explained there by different processes that do not apply to rocky planets like Earth and Venus.

Founder of the Exopolitics Institute, Dr Michael Salla, tweeted today: “Cover up of life on Venus began with skewed experiments devised by Carl Sagan for Mariner missions. Sagan was given a position at Harvard by MJ-12 in thanks.” Dr Salla would be referring to the fact that scientist Carl Sagan wrote – back in 1967 – that a high carbon-dioxide atmosphere was no obstacle to life, pointing out that up at the 50km (31-mile) layer, at the top of Venus’ clouds, conditions are actually hospitable and almost Earth-like. Add sunlight and water vapor to CO2, he said, and you have the recipe for that building block of life, photosynthesis.

According to Electric Universe theorists at the Thunderbolts Project, 10,000 years ago, the birth of Venus changed the heavens and captured the allure of storytellers and bards for generations. It may have led to the downfall of the ancient world and given rise to our history, wedding customs, and civilization as we know it. They note that Immanuel Velikovsky in his book Worlds in Collision, theorised that Venus was a comet that originally came from Jupiter and was captured into its present orbit in about 1500 BC; he saw that as an explanation as to why ancient peoples such as the Babylonians and Peruvians described it as a fiery streak.

Thunderbolts says that Velikovsky’s work was flawed, in that he based his theories on Hebrew & Greek lore and overlooked the parallels in the older Egyptian and Sumerian stories. They believe the observation by ancient people of Venus’ movement in a comet-like fashion occurred in pre-history (just over ten millennia ago), as it moved to its present position after a collision elsewhere. What they do agree on is that Venus has existed as a planet where it is today, not for billions or even millions of years, but just thousands.

Scientists are quick to point out that Venus is hot with an atmosphere consisting mainly of carbon dioxide and an acidic environment. Exploratory space missions such as Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency’s Akatsuki probe and ESA’s Venus Express, have found that Venus is cooler at the poles as well as at higher altitudes.

Scientists sometime use the expression ‘Life as we know it,’ and they are limiting their expectations of life-forms on Venus to that of microbes. There are those whom we might call ‘alternative scientists’ however, who have just recently been supporting the idea of extraterrestrials who are invisible/undetectable to our five senses and to conventional methods of detection. In January this year Helen Sharman OBE, the first Brit in space and now at Imperial College London’s Department of Chemistry, Sharman told The Observer, “Aliens exist, there’s no two ways about it.” She went on to share her view that aliens could be on Earth right now. “Will they be like you and me, made up of carbon and nitrogen?” she asked. “Maybe not. It’s possible they’re here right now and we simply can’t see them.”

Back in April of last year, The Oxford Student newspaper ran an interview with Dr Young-Hae Chi of the University of Oxford, in which Dr Chi revealed that he believes not only in invisible aliens living here on Earth, but in the theory they’re interbreeding with humans in order to create a hybrid species capable of surviving the effects of climate change. He has written a book on the subject: Alien Visitations and the End of Humanity.

In 2018, Dr Gabriel de la Torre of the University of Cadiz published a paper in which he proposed that aliens may be living in dark matter, which pervades the entire universe (including the Earth) but which is unobservable. He explained, “What we are trying to do with this differentiation is to contemplate other possibilities – for example, beings of dimensions that our mind cannot grasp, or intelligences based on dark matter or energy forms, which make up almost 95 percent of the universe and which we are only beginning to glimpse.”

He’s not the only scientist who suspects invisible aliens may inhabit dark matter. In 2016, Dr Caleb Scharf of Columbia University’s Astrobiology Center wrote an article proposing that dark matter is “where all technologically advanced life ends up or where most life has always been.” Others, however, have suggested that undetectable aliens might represent an alternative, ‘shadow’ form of microbial life. This is what Carol Cleland and Shelley Copley of Colorado University (along with other co-authors) proposed in a number of papers published from 2005 onwards.

What Mystics have had to say about Venus
C.W. Leadbeater and later adherents of Theosophy such as Alice A. Bailey believed that Sanat Kumara descended from the etheric plane of the planet Venus to Earth, while the ancient Buddhist temple, Kurama-dera in Japan, is host to a unique bodhisattva, the ‘Defender Lord’, who is said to come from the planet Venus.

It is said elsewhere that the ‘Solar Brotherhood’ was first brought to Earth from Venus by adepts known as the Kumaras, a name which has the meaning of androgynous Serpents. You will find references to the Kumaras in the Hindu Puranas, where they are described as being the first teachers of Yoga on the plane.

Author Maurice Cotterell, in several of his books, talks about a group of historical figures he calls ‘The Supergods,’ who were all said to have come from, and returned to, the “bright star” Venus. These include Krishna, Buddha and Jesus, as well as Tutankhamun and Lord Pacal (also incarnated as Viracocha). Specifically he says, “When Krishna was born, a bright star appeared in the sky. Buddha, it was said, was a bright star in his mother’s womb and when Jesus was born a bright star appeared in the sky. Revelation (xxii, 16) goes further, saying: ‘I Jesus … am the root of David, and the bright and morning star’.”

That same chapter of revelation goes on to say in verse 28 “And I will give him the morning star.” While speaking of Biblical verses, in 2 Peter 1:19 says, “Christ the Morning Star shines in your hearts;” Isaiah 14:12: “How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!” Talking about Venus?

The great mystic and author Dr Paul Brunton said that the closer a planet to the Sun, the more advanced is the life on it. He wrote: The inhabitants of each planet belong to different stages of evolution: some higher and some lower. This applies not only to the human inhabitants but also to the animal and even the plant inhabitants. There may exist on other planets creatures infinitely more intelligent and more amiable than human beings.

Eckankar is a religious movement with members in over one hundred countries. Its founder said he traced the lineage of its masters back to Gakko, who brought the true teachings of soul travel from the city of Retz on the planet Venus.

Watching Venus
Looking back as far as we can with written records, the ancient Babylonians tracked the wanderings of our twin-planet through the sky in 1600 BC, however, the first scientifically acceptable observation was in 1610 AD by Galileo Galilei. The Greek mathematician Pythagoras was the first to discover that what were thought to be two different bodies, the morning and evening stars, were in fact the one and the same object.

Venus, the only planet we have named after a female figure, is also the closest one to us and is similar in size to Earth. Unlike most others, however, it rotates in a clockwise direction, seeing the Sun rise in the west (only Uranus also does this). It is the most spherical in appearance and has the least eccentric orbit, traveling nearly in a perfect circle; it has no moons or rings.  

One Venusian day (or rotation) is about 243 Earth days, which is longer than one of its orbits around the Sun: a Venusian year is only 225 Earth days, so it has roughly eight years to every five of ours (so  I use a ratio 8:5; those are fussier with their math would say the ratio is 13:8). So, not only is it cooler at the poles, it would probably be the best place to take advantage of the planetary cycles, of light and dark.

I have speculated elsewhere that our moon seems to have been put in its place intelligently and purposefully. Could the same be true of Venus?

Clavis: An Interpretive Key to the Creation Story

The following article is taken from the introduction to the new Australian Esoteric Magazine (see the foot of the page for a link to it). The issue covers the theme of events that are anticipated by many to take place in December 2020. Underpinning the prophecy is the hypothesis that we humans are not merely the product of chance, but rather the result of intervention(s) by more advanced intelligent beings. Drawing on all the relevant sources, here is how I summarise the historical background to the condition of the modern human today.

Prior to 40,000 years ago there were Neanderthals and Cro-Magnons coexisting in Europe. Today, all humans are classified academically as being modern Homo Sapiens-Sapiens. We know a lot about human history going back 2,500 years because it has been documented. Then we have stories, artefacts and buildings going back to 5,500 years ago; beyond that is commonly called ‘prehistory’ and things get a little hazy.

It seems there was an intervention by non-human intelligences sometime prior to 5,000 years ago and there have likely been other (perhaps several) cycles of civilizations prior to this one. Aboriginal people are known to have been occupying Australia for the past 70,000 years and, even though they carry about 3-5 % of Denisovan DNA, remains of other kinds of Homo Erectus have never been found in Australia. Genomic sequencing has shown that certain Native Americans share DNA with indigenous populations living in Australia, New Guinea and the Andaman Islands, and that this ‘Australasian signal’ is more than 10,000 years old.  

We hit a brick wall, in terms of recorded civilization, at the point between 11 and 12 thousand years before present. That millennium saw the end of the last ice age, the occurrence of the Younger Dryas, and the commencement of the Neolithic era. According to present-day scholars, it was at this time that humans “learned” about the cultivation of crops and animal husbandry, leading to the rise of civilization around 5,500 years ago.

However, evidence from sites such as Gobekli Tepe and Çatalhöyük in southern Turkey, Baalbeck in Lebanon and Nabta Playa in the Egyptian Sahara, demonstrates the remains of an older, more technologically advanced civilization, which had already drawn to a close. According to Plato, Atlantis was destroyed between 11 and 12 thousand years ago.

Because most of what we know about prehistory is called mythology – thereby dismissing it as being largely fictitious – the question of how and why modern humans exist at all is considered unanswerable by the majority of people today. According to the latest stats on the internet, about 86% of the world’s 7.8 billion people follow some sort of religion, implying that they recognize the existence of a deity and a human soul. Of these, 4.3 billion – more than half – belong to one of the Abrahamic groups (which mainly comprises Jews, Christian and Muslims), meaning their beliefs draw heavily on the ancient texts of the Hebrews and the Sumerians; by extension, they accept that supernatural beings mingled with humans thousands of years ago.

Likewise, millions of indigenous peoples in Africa, Asia and the Americas have handed down accounts over the centuries of deities or supernatural beings who dwell on a plane above our own and, in fact, were the ones who genetically designed human beings, then later interbred with them. It seems unrealistic to think that, regardless of whether or not we are made “in their image,” such races of deities and demi-gods would be mammals like us who undertook interstellar travel in spacecraft made of metal and propelled by fossil fuel at subluminal speeds, taking centuries or millennia to reach Earth.

With the current speculation by physicists about inter-dimensional realities existing at different vibrational frequencies to ours, it is becoming more commonplace for us to talk about beings who have been given the tag ‘ultra-terrestrials.’ The ancient Egyptians defy our comprehension with their monumental constructions of stone (and the same with the Meso-Americans), while the ancient Greeks were undisputedly masters of philosophy, logic and inventiveness, so we should not summarily dismiss all their accounts of non-human or superhuman beings, such as Isis and Osiris or the Titans and Olympians.

Moreover, we know from records that have been preserved, including the Sumerian King List, the Pyramid Texts, and the Popol Vuh, that ancient rulers were able to demonstrate their lineage back to such other-worldly beings. The antics of the Greek demi-gods match those of the Hebrew sons of God in Genesis 6 and the Watchers in 2 Enoch 18, where hybrid offspring were often produced by the mating of flesh-and-blood humans with beings of another realm.

We have been taught that many of the prehistorical superhuman figures dating to more than five millennia ago were fictional and that tales of creation, or intervention stories, are merely fables. For those who are beginning to accept their existence, there is a tendency to consider them just an interesting part of ancient history and that they simply ‘went away.’ Today we are still in the same cycle that was underway five millennia ago. The chapter has not yet reached its conclusion, although indications are that a change is imminent. Those that set this cycle in motion are with us still, even if most of us are unable to observe and identify them.

It is possible that the condition we find ourselves in as modern homo sapiens-sapiens is unique in the Cosmos. We have not yet observed another planet out there that has an atmosphere like Earth with a ‘Garden of Eden’ on its exterior surface, endowed with natural kingdoms of mineral, vegetable and animal like ours. It might be that intelligent, consciously self-aware beings elsewhere in the Multiverse exist on a higher dimensional frequency, and that some of them deliberately established Earth’s fourth kingdom of nature – humans – by creating a hybrid of themselves with earthly hominids. The resulting human being is a duality that we know as body and soul – part angel, part beast. The early gnostics said that we were created not by their God, but by a Demiurge. Theologians recall this event as the Fall.

It is helpful to note the distinction between the terms, ‘God’ with a capital G, and gods with a small g. There need not be a conflict with a belief in the former when considering that the modern-day human – half mammal and half spirit – is the product of an intervention by the small-g demi-gods. Erich Von Daniken, whose first book caused a sensation fifty years ago, says he still believes deeply in God and prays every day. These are issues which can be viewed as being complementary rather than contradictory.

Prudence and Preparedness

What Will Happen in the Final Quarter of 2020?

Everyone agrees that 2020 has been a year of momentous gravity, with the very real likelihood that ‘the system’ will never, ever go back to the way it used to be. What should we be expecting for the remainder of this annus horribilis – specifically: should we be prepared for an Event that a growing circle foresees looming on the 21st December this year?

In July last year I posted a blog about what many are simply calling The Event, but I would be  hesitant to nominate a date for it myself, unless I was to personally receive a revelation about it. Today I participated in an online presentation in which Steven Strong – whom I know and respect – was not at all reticent about specifying a date: 21 December 2020. With even finer precision he gave us a time: 9:04pm.

Steven and his son Evan make their assertions after consultation with certain Aboriginal Elders. It is said that ancient crystals are stored within a rock in Central Australia that will be activated by the willpower of a critical mass of consciously aware people in December. As I understand it, humanity is due for a raising of frequency which will correspond to the elevation of the Schumann Resonance. This denotes the planet’s wavelength which is known to start as low as 4.11 Hertz, but is expected to peak at around 150 Hz.

Some humans will resonate with the new frequency and some will not. Steven Strong stresses that this is not to be seen as a “good vs evil” scenario, but rather as a matter of us being drawn to, and by, the choices we make. On the positive side, the events of 2020 – particularly the Covid pandemic – are giving many people the impetus to re-evaluate their priorities in life.

Some of the listeners today asked what constructive action they could be taking, to which Steven responded that a very worthwhile first step would be to get the word out to everyone we know. For those keen to learn more, there will be an eight-hour online conference this Sunday 30 August Australian time, or Saturday evening 29 August USA time – click HERE for details.

Among the five main presentations this weekend will be one by Valerie Barrow, whom I also know and admire, and I believe she will have something to say about our non-human ancient ancestors. Another presenter will be a lady I have not met, by the name of Teejay Casado, and I expect that she will draw a connection between Native American traditions and Australia. This will be of special interest to me because of my affiliation with Cosolargy in the USA and my visit to Nevada last year.

Both Steven and Valerie will be guest presenters at the Cosmic Consciousness Conference at Uluru, Central Australia, from 20 to 22 December 2020. This is significantly timed to coincide with the anticipated Event of the 21st, which is not only the Solstice but also the date for a grand conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, the two largest planets in our solar system. I should point out that Steven Strong says the importance attached to 21 December by our Original Elders is astronomically based.

A few readers who had subscribed to my online magazine, Australian Esoteric, have suggested that it would be timely to publish a series of quarterly journals dedicated to unfolding events; this prompting, together with the foregoing discussion, inspires me to do just that. Expect to see a “Southern Spring” quarterly edition in September.

With that in mind I will ask another friend, Dr Jamal Shrair, the ‘dissident scientist’ whose expertise is in understanding the workings of the Sun, to contribute an update on his predictions of the Earth upheavals he expects to be caused in the closing months of 2020 by the Sun’s current high position in the galaxy.

A related theme I want to report on is the growing movement known as the Preppers. When I last wrote about the impending Event I thought that this was a phenomenon peculiar to America, but now realize there is a proliferation of Preppers here in Australia too. These are individuals or communities who actively prepare for emergencies, including possible disruptions in social or political order, on scales from local to international. They don’t like being conflated with ‘survivalists,’ but do have an emphasis on self-reliance, stockpiling supplies, and gaining survival knowledge and skills.

That the world is going through momentous changes in real time is already evident. I encourage readers to research for themselves what many expect to be a life-changing “reset” before this year is done. That’s why I chose the title of this article – surely it is prudent to be prepared. As soon as the upcoming quarterly edition of Australian Esoteric goes live, I will send out a notice to my subscribers.

Faith & Hope in the Marian Valley

Speaking Words of Wisdom, Let It Be

The Byzantine-style icon in the Black Madonna Chapel is a focal point at the Marian Valley near Tamborine Mountain, in the Gold Coast Hinterland’s ‘Scenic Rim’ of South-East Queensland. Marian Valley is recognized as a sacred place and the visitor gains an impression of it being what is sometimes called a ‘thin place.’ Wandering through several acres of well-maintained gardens, one is struck by the diversity of nations to which shrines are dedicated.

I chose to visit on the 13th of the month, as I knew that each month on that date, they hold a procession from the Black Madonna Chapel down to the Grotto of Our Lady of Fatima. It’s a long walk into the Valley and they have a few of those electric carts, of the type used at airports and golf courses, for those who need assistance. Various nationalities were represented among the attendees and parts of the rosary and chanting were conducted in Maltese and Filipino (Tagalog). A couple of families who were evidently from Vietnam stopped a while at the La Vang shrine.

The phenomenon of ‘apparitions’ features repeatedly at these chapels. While the most famous historical cases are those of Fatima and Lourdes, both the reported appearances of Mary and the incidences of Black Madonnas occur worldwide. Many of these come from Africa, Eastern Europe and Asia – notably the Philippines and Japan. Events claimed as miracles often involve Mary in conjunction with the Sun, and I wrote about this in my blog last October, titled When the Sun Spins in the Sky.

The Marian Valley Shrine is under the care of the monks of the Order of St. Paul the First Hermit (the Pauline Fathers), who reside in a monastery on the grounds. The Monastic Order to which they belong was founded in 1215 in Hungary by Blessed Eusebius, under the patronage of St. Paul the Hermit – aka Paul of Thebes – who had lived a solitary life in a cave in the desert of Egypt in the third century.

For the present-day Fathers and Brothers, two obvious influences are highly revered: Pope John Paul II, and Mary. These in turn connect them to the icon of the Black Madonna – for which the Pauline Monks were first given guardianship by the governor of Ruthenia in the 14th century. It was brought to Jasna Gora (Hill of Light) in Częstochowa, where they founded a fortress monastery that held out against many raiders over the years, to ultimately became the beacon of a Catholic Poland. This was the spiritual home of John Paul II who, as Pope, visited Czestochowa six times.

The term Black Madonna refers to statues or paintings in Western Christendom of Mary and the Infant Jesus, where both figures are depicted as black. This type of icon is in the Byzantine Style and called a Hodegetria, meaning one who shows the way, as the Virgin points with her right hand away from herself and towards the Christ Child. According to legend, the original is said to have been painted by St Luke the Evangelist on the very table that the Holy Family used in Nazareth – and which was actually handcrafted by Jesus. Further, while he was painting the portrait, his subject – Mary – recounted the events in the life of Jesus that would eventually be used in his Gospel. In 326 AD St. Helen, the mother of Constantine, found the painting in Jerusalem and gifted it to her son, who then built a Shrine and hung it in Constantinople.

Here is how the Order describes it. “The Miraculous Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa:
It was painted on a wood panel measuring 1222 x 822 x 35mm. Mary’s face dominates the painting and observers find themselves immersed in her eyes. Regardless of the angle they look at Mary, she looks back at them. The face of the Child is also turned towards the pilgrim, but his eyes are looking elsewhere. The two faces have a serious and thoughtful expression adding to the emotional tone of the painting. There are two parallel slashes and a third horizontal cut mark our Lady’s right cheek. On Mary’s neck there are six scratches, two more visible than others. Jesus, dressed in a scarlet tunic and supported by his Mother’s left arm, has his right hand raised in a magisterial gesture, of sovereignty and benediction. His right hand holds the Bible. The right hand of the Virgin rests on her breast, as if she were indicating the Child (Hodigitria type icon). The Virgin’s blue robe and mantle are decorated with lilies, symbol of royalty. A six-pointed star is featured on Mary’s brow. Important features are the auras around Virgin and Child since their brightness contrasts with the dark facial tones. The background is dark green.”

A few apparitions of Mary in particular are mentioned in the most recent printed news issued by the Pauline Fathers. Japan: Akita-shi, where a nun received messages – as well as the stigmata – and a wooden statue of Mary was observed to have wept more than a hundred times; a new chapel was opened to honour this in September last year, with Japanese devotees in attendance. East Timor: In January 2020 a chapel was dedicated to Our Lady of Aitara in commemoration of an appearance by Mary to several women near the Banyan tree on Aitara Hill in the late 19th century. PNG: Also in January this year, a chapel shrine was opened to mark the 25th anniversary of the beatification of the catechist Blessed Peter To Rot, who was executed by lethal injection during the Japanese invasion New Guinea on 07 July 1945 at Rakanui.

The sensation I experienced at the Marian Valley was calming and, at the same time, grounding; these impressions sprang in equal measure from the natural beauty of the environment and the profound dedication and sincerity I observed in the other sightseers, worshippers and devotees. Words such as faith and belief have lost some of their currency in this modern era, yet there must always be a place for those who follow their hearts; always room for Mystery and Miracles. 

I am grateful to planetary-healer Paulina Howfield, who graciously allowed me to publish her account of how she unintentionally came across the Marian Valley, in my Australian Esoteric magazine a couple of years ago. (I have been meaning to visit it ever since that time). I will finish by quoting two comments from Paulina: “I like to think that it [the Black Madonna] was gifted to help bring the energy of Mary into the local environment and assist in raising our awareness of the Divine Feminine. But what do I know?”; and, “The atmosphere was serene and peaceful and the intermittent birdsong coming from the trees suggested it was a place filled with harmonious interactions with all of God’s creatures in the natural world.

2020 Foresight

Prescience, Prophecy and Prediction

The theme of my last blog about time, and the future, generated some positive feedback and questions. If we do not have a time machine at our disposal in which to physically “jaunt” from one time-point to another, the next best thing to prove the existence of the future is to establish a communication link with it. We will look at ways to do this mentally, but first – is there a device that can connect visually and/or audibly with either the past or the future?

Recently, several computer programs have been developed with the function of predicting the future, and here we should note the difference between the three words in the sub-title of this blog. Prophecy is considered to be the divine gift of foretelling future events; Prediction is the ability to say what is going to happen before it actually does, and this describes the process being employed by Artificial Intelligence; Prescience is having fore-knowledge – actually knowing the future, which would involve the removal of  the time-barrier. (Other terms such as premonition and presentiment are generally considered to be vague). So, Prescience is my ideal term.

One story that persists, in the face of strident denials, is that the Vatican possesses a time-bridging device called the Chronovisor. It is said to have been invented in the 1950s by Italian physicists Enrico Fermi and Pellegrino Ernetti, and constructed by a team of twelve world-famous scientists that included the German space-age rocket pioneer Wernher von Braun and French Catholic priest, Father François Brune, who described it in his 2002 book Le Nouveau Mystère du Vatican. Some say that is was based on technology masterminded by Serbian-American inventor Nikola Tesla.

The Chronovisor has been described as looking like a large cabinet featuring a cathode ray tube viewing screen, with its components being made of three precious metal alloys and comprising a tuning dial that works with electromagnetic signals. Its operation is based on a technology identified by Wikileaks documents as “quantum access.” Well-known author Alfred Lambremont Webre has said “This leaked WikiLeaks information does not include the secret programs that permit humans to travel backwards and forwards in time.”

Webre revealed in an interview with Daily Star Online, “What the Vatican did is they subcontracted the technology and gave it to the US Pentagon and CIA starting in the late 1960s. The CIA immediately saw they could use it for political purposes. They set up a programme in the late 1960s to gain knowledge about the political future.” He claims further that: “Using the Chronovisor, the future president is revealed ahead of time and the CIA “groom them for the job” so they would “represent the American empire… even if they were on the left or the right” of politics.”

An interesting side note, since we have mentioned the US president, is that M.I.T. Professor John G Trump – the uncle of current president Donald – was called in by the FBI to examine Nikola Tesla’s documents after his death in 1943. Then of course there are the recently ‘rediscovered’ books by 19th century writer Ingersoll Lockwood – two about Baron Trump and one about the Last President. Perhaps the author had glimpsed the future?

Coincidentally, this month I came across a couple of “time-relevant” comments from my daily news feeds – one in Valerie Barrow’s channelling on 07 July, on the subject of past and future: “For neither of them are really separate. For everything is happening at once. It might be a little hard to accept this but it is a matter of focus. The time, distance, is only relevant for say mathematicians or astronomers.”

The other was from Michael Roads daily ‘365 Steps’ posting on 13 July: “The experience of timelessness does not just happen – and yet it does.  There are so many paradoxes involved here that I am wading through a minefield of them. As metaphysical Beings we live in a timeless reality, but our physical experience is of linear time.  It takes time and practice to let our senses move beyond the confines and restrictions of the physical, to embrace the greater, metaphysical, timeless reality.”

One of the central debates in the philosophy of time is formed between two camps called the A-theorists and the B-theorists. The A-theory of time is the standard one we all have in mind when we talk about time. According to the B-theory of time, on the other hand, the present is not metaphysically distinguished in any way from past and future times. Just as there is nothing metaphysically special about, say, London as opposed to Sydney, the B-theorist maintains that there is nothing special about the present moment as opposed to, say, the year 1847 or 2157. These two notions were put forward over a century ago by John McTaggart, a lecturer in philosophy at Cambridge, who argued that time is “unreal.”

This raises an issue fundamental to the question of travel and/or communication between time-points: how do we establish a universal reference for calculating time and date? Whether you aim to connect with another point in time either by mental projection or, perhaps more importantly, by physical jaunting, it would be absolutely critical to ascertain precise coordinates at both departure and arrival. In our world, there are various time-zones around the globe, plus different methods used to calculate the year and date. When you start considering other worlds, who makes the rules?

Here in this 3D world of ours we have UTC (Universal Time Coordinated) based on GMT.  A fictional – and arbitrary – system of time measurement developed for the television and film series Star Trek called a “stardate” is probably more indicative of what advanced technology would require. Physicists theorise that to move about in time, we might have to go via parallel universes – in other words, become “inter-dimensional.”

All the different methods for reckoning time across different cultures and historical eras have their basic units based on the relationship between the Earth and the Sun. We know that the Chinese had a calendar as far back as the one created by Emperor Huang Di in 2637 BC; the Mayan calendar started in 3114 BC; and the one used by the Hebrews must be even older because its current year is 5780… but no-one used the concept of BC and AD until the year 225 AD, and even then the year “Zero” is still open to debate. The concept of the “hour” was perceived as such firstly by Egyptians, and later borrowed by the Greeks, then the Romans with the arrival of the sundial in 146 BC.

So, programming any device with, for example, the year 500 BC would be fraught with problems. Back in those “BC” days, a common method of indicating the passage of years for the ancient Greeks was based on the Olympic Games, first held in 776 BC, while the ancient Romans adopted the epoch of Varro, dating from 753 BC. However, setting your coordinates by their calendars would be problematic: Julius Caesar stretched the year 46 B.C.—now known as the longest year in history—to 445 days long to remove previous discrepancies, then introduced the leap year, although initially he mistakenly had it pegged at once every three years.

Until we learn the system of coordinates used by time-travelling civilizations, we can still safely practice mental projection, or Remote Viewing, as used by the likes of the Pentagon, CIA, the Kremlin and China’s Somatic Sciences – who have all employed the services of professional Remote Viewers for some decades now. I believe that collectively, the human race has now reached a level of consciousness that is conducive to psychic experimentation.

It is often easier to target events or personalities rather than specific dates. Back when I wrote regularly for Insight Magazine (no longer in print), they ran one of my articles on this subject in the August 2004 issue. It focused on visiting special time-points in history and the editor gave it the title Your Mind: Your Passport to the Past. What follows is a brief description of the technique I used back then, with some tweaking based on the importance I now associate with the Sun and Spheres – and looking ahead to the future instead of the past.

Choose a quiet place where you will not be disturbed.
If circumstances permit, try this outdoors in the Sun but – and I stress this – do not attempt to look at the Sun if you have not been trained in Solar techniques. Allowing the Sun’s light to fall on your closed eyelids will be beneficial.
If you are indoors, having a lighted candle to gaze at before starting will help.
Keep a pen and paper handy to record any impressions you receive afterwards.
Be seated on a comfortable chair or cushion.
Take several long, deep breaths through the nose. Relax and clear the mind of mundane clutter.
Attune with your higher self. I liken this to connecting with a telephone exchange or satellite before placing your call.
Anyone familiar with the disciplines of meditation and prayer will enter the ideal state with little difficulty.
With eyes closed, visualize a round sphere of light.
Concentrate on the time and place you want to visit (and, if applicable, a particular person).
If you don’t have an exact timepoint in mind, start with a general period at, say, one month, two years or a decade hence (just for example).
See yourself in the centre of a large circular courtyard or plaza, with the sphere of light above.
All around the perimeter are alleyways leading off it in every direction.
Above each one is an archway with a sign showing a particular century.
Cast your eyes around until you see the century you want (it may be the current one).
Enter your desired laneway and move along it, until you see a gateway bearing the year on it that you are looking for.
Once through the gate, you may be content to simply take in the scene that presents itself to you or, if you are seeking a month, a day and even a time, these will appear as doorways as you bring them to mind.
Think of yourself as actually being there.
Sometimes the first thing you see is just a mist of colour(s). Pause until things come into focus.
Visualize the conditions, the atmosphere, the weather, the people.
If you are successful you will receive impressions, thoughts and perhaps a message from a person in that time.
If you make contact with a person or being you did not already know, consider this as an introduction and, if the session is fruitful, you may be able to return here often to continue the dialogue.
Ask any questions you have, but keep them simple and to the point.
Stay still and quiet for a few minutes and just listen.
(The results may come to you immediately, or hours or days later in an intuitive flash, or in a lucid dream).
When you are ready to leave, depart by the gateway, move back down the laneway to the plaza.
After slowly opening your eyes, jot down notes to record what you have seen and heard.

I will leave you with a couple of quotes that I included in that old Insight article:

The yogi learns that the opposites of sacred time (eternity) and profane time (linear, passing time) come together in unity… A person who understands this stands outside local, passing profane time, which is the time of illness, suffering and death. Now he or she is in the graced state of non-local, extended time, the time of eternity, the Great Cosmic Time.”
– From the book Recovering the Soul by Larry Dossey MD

The Universal Mind has no time slit, no personal wall; its knowledge is not limited by quantum probabilities… the Universal Mind has no need for memory, since all things and processes – past, present and future – are open to its grasp.”
– From the book The Miracle of Existence by Prof. Henry Margenau

The Future Already Exists

Traversing the Sphere of Time

Over the past two weeks I have encountered discussions on the subject of “time” everywhere I turn; an unexpected take on the theme appeared today in an article claiming that Donald Trump was told in a briefing by his advisors that the Roswell UFO Crash involved time-travelling humans from the future. The story links back to a podcast Trump did with his son a month ago, in which he described what he had learned about the controversial event as “very interesting.”

Prophecy has always fascinated us humans, but the consensus view has been that the future doesn’t actually exist yet and that anybody receiving visions of it is most likely just glimpsing probabilities – or possibilities – of a time that, as of now, is still without form or substance. But, if time is a dimension just like space and the future is simply a point we have not so far physically reached, then all the science fiction about time travel becomes achievable.

The article I referred to above about Donald Trump appears on the Exopolitics website of internationally recognized Australian expat scholar, Dr Michael Salla. I will quote this paragraph from it and follow that with a link for interested readers. “This is what (Corey) Goode wrote to me about what Trump has been told and what is about to be officially disclosed:
I have mentioned this in the past. It was brought up again recently after Trump commented on Roswell. POTUS ‘Roswell Briefings’ are basically this: Roswell was NOT an Alien event. It was a mishap from US in the future. POTUS is told that the MAJORITY of the lights seen in the sky are from our own craft operating in the future and creating a temporal butterfly effect. They are told that what the ancients saw in the sky was often the exact same phenomenon…” Read the full article HERE.

The idea that the future already exists was brought home to me this week when watching a video clip showing Grandfather Martin Gashweseoma of the Hopi Fire Clan in Arizona. In his short talk at the Second Prophecy Rock, he speaks of the future with as much detail and confidence as he recounts the past. We just happen to be having an experience right now at a point called “the present.”

The communications between Dr Salla and Corey Goode – who is known as a ‘Secret Space Program Insider’ – include this statement: There is a constant contact between the present and the future since the late 50’s. The ‘PLAN’ that Q often mentions was delivered to the mid 1960’s ‘pre-alliance’ members in full and that plan has been followed ever since. These people carry these weird looking pagers (like from the 80’s/90’s) that has a flip out keyboard that allows the person to communicate with their FUTURE self and command center within these programs. There are Quantum Computers that are used for this communication and it operates in ‘reciprocal dimensions’ where time flows in different directions and at different rates. Data is transmitted in these alternate dimensions.

When you stop and think about it, the concept of UFOs coming from another time has as much merit as them originating in a distant star system. The technology required to ‘jaunt’[1] between time points may be no more complex than that involved in traversing light-years through space. Since we are unable to physically wade back and forth in the flow of time, we must logically first move outside of the space-time continuum and then re-enter it at another period/date.

In my last blog I wrote about spheres, and different dimensions can be visualized in this shape. Physics tells us that in the 3D material universe, space and matter are conjoined, so it is reasonable to consider time as one of the spheres. If beings from the future, whether human or ET, master the skill of ‘jaunting’ into our time physically – as opposed to using mental or astral projection – they must first dematerialize from this worldly sphere, before reassembling themselves again bodily back in this realm at a different time.

If, as indicated by Corey Goode, UFOs (or at least some of them) hail from the future, it tells us the occupants need to undertake their excursions inside a vehicle. It would be crucial to pre-select the exact time and location of re-emergence. Failure to pinpoint one’s destination with surgical precision might result in the kind of mishap that occurred at Roswell in 1947.

It has always seemed incongruous to me that beings in possession of technology sufficiently advanced to carry them across light-years of space would be so inept as to crash-land their vehicle on arrival at Earth. But popping into our dimension from another point in space-time could explain it. One might also wonder why they would travel so far just to have a quick look at us before hastily departing. The idea of inter-dimensional travel can hold more rational appeal, as does the new allegation of time-travellers from the future.

To traverse time in our bodies or vehicles, we would either have to locate a naturally occurring vortex/wormhole, or construct what is popularly known as a time-machine, as it is now being suggested we will eventually do. An alternative method of convincing ourselves that the future is real, is to project ourselves there mentally or spiritually. While this is a purely subjective experience and does not carry the same weight as physical travel, the ability to view events still to come, and make an accurate prophecy, is useful in establishing the pre-existence of the future. I originally intended to cover techniques for future-viewing here but, to avoid complicating this blog, will treat that as a separate issue next time.

For now, we wait for the next step by the US government in an action being anticipated as the ‘Disclosure.’ It is often said that the world is not ready to hear the truth about UFOs and ETs, with speculation that the past few decades of sci-fi movies and leaked military information have been preparing us for this Disclosure. But, while the masses might no longer go into panic on learning there is other intelligent life out there, how are they going to handle the news that beings – human or otherwise – are travelling inter-dimensionally and dropping in on us from the future?

[1] I am borrowing the term “jaunt” which was used by author Alfred Bester in his novel The Stars My Destination in which the hero Gully Foyle, engaged in a style of teleportation called Jaunting. Stephen King later employed the term in his book The Jaunt in homage to Bester.

Secrets of the Sphere

What Did Leonardo Know?

Spheres are central to your very existence and, in case this has not occurred to you before, we can look at some examples of their significance. Leonardo Da Vinci, who is accepted as having been ahead of his time with his inventions, and also widely regarded as having possessed special insights into ancient truths, purposefully wove one of his enigmatic messages into the Salvator Mundi with its non-refracting sphere.

Over the past few years I have written a number of articles about spheres, with themes including: the phenomenon of orbs and spheres appearing in photos; the archaeological discovery of ancient stone spheres around the world; spherical UFOs and lights in the sky; intelligent plasma spheres; and the meaning of spheres used in traditional architecture and art.

From the stars, moon and planets of the macrocosm down to atoms, photons and cells, the predominant shape that occurs in the natural universe is the sphere. Our Earth, along with the other orb-like planets and moons of our solar system, exists inside a spherical bubble known as the Heliosphere. New Age teacher Drunvalo Melchizedek has correctly pointed out: “Every known form of life begins as a sphere […] The ovum is a perfectly round ball […] the sperm’s tail breaks off and … becomes a perfect sphere, which is the male pronucleus.” In the 1980s, National Geographic reported that scientists have now found that spheres of energy do indeed surround galaxies. And Leonardo Da Vinci, just like the ancient Greeks, held that the universe itself was spherical.

Leonardo’s Salvator Mundi, billed as “the last known painting by the Renaissance master in private hands,” was sold at Christie’s in 2017 for $450.3 million, making it by far the most expensive work of art ever sold at auction. It depicts Jesus gesturing with his right hand, while holding a transparent, non-refracting crystal orb in his left, signalling his role as Salvator Mundi (Latin for ‘Saviour of the World’). The orb is thought by art critics to represent the ‘celestial sphere’ of the heavens.

It is enigmatic for a couple of reasons. Notwithstanding his artistic mastery and scientifically precise knowledge, Leonardo did not paint the distortion (magnification or inverted imagery) that would occur when looking through a solid glass or crystal orb – instead picturing it as if it were a hollow glass bubble that does not refract or distort the light passing through it. Secondly, he incorporated three prominent white spots forming a triangle on, or within, the sphere.

Logically, if he meant this to be the kind of sphere that is used by kings and parliaments, e.g. a Royal Orb or a Globus Cruciger, he would have applied his technical know-how and painted it with corresponding refracted imagery. Since he was a scientist as well as architect and master of painting technique, how did he fail to depict the refraction of the glass sphere? I believe he was familiar with the centuries-old Indian and Chinese depictions of a Bodhisattva or the Buddha holding a Chintamani (or Cintāmaṇi), and these also never showed distortion or inversion. The Chintamani is said by some to be the equivalent of the Philosopher’s Stone in Western alchemy.

Bodhisattva holding a Chintamani

What makes us think that Leonardo had special insight, especially about Jesus, when, even though he (Leonardo) lived 500 years ago, it was still 1500 years after Christ? We should remember that although he painted a lot of his work on Biblical themes for the Catholic Church, Leonardo was raised with other influences, including mystical. Some called him a heretic. As one of the important figures who ushered in the Renaissance, he drew heavily on the teachings of the founders of the Western world – the pre-Christian Greeks and Romans.

Leonardo lived at a time when the existence of celestial spheres was accepted, with the outermost one being a non-material sphere called The Empyrean. In this model our world was seen as being embedded in a larger rotating sphere – concentric with the Earth – that was made of an aethereal, transparent fifth element (quintessence), like a jewel set in an orb. The old adage As Above, So Below, demonstrates this understanding that everything in our third-dimensional physical world is a reflection or mirror-image of a substance that is first created in the aethereal realm. In Plato’s Republic, he extends this thinking to the Sun itself, asserting that in the Intelligible World, the “Sun-behind-the-sun” is the source of reality and truth.

In Greek antiquity the idea of celestial spheres first appeared in the cosmology of Anaximander in the early 6th century BC and was expanded upon by Anaximenes, Pythagoras, Xenophanes and Parmenides. Leonardo knew their works well, but when his contemporary, Copernicus, proposed the heliocentric system (later refined by Galileo and Kepler) the new scientists “threw the baby out with the bath water” by rejecting all notions of aether and the spheres.

So, we come back to the question of why Leonardo depicted the sphere of Salvator Mundi as he did and, if he gained secret knowledge, where did it come from? He has been claimed to have been a Rosicrucian and, more controversially, also appears on the now-disputed list of Grand Masters of the Priory of Sion from 1510 to1519. When he was still in his early twenties, he disappeared (or ‘went off the grid,’ if you like) for two years between 1476 and 1478. In one of his very few written personal diaries, he tells of finding a vast and mysterious cave that he was drawn to enter and spend some time inside. It is speculated that he had an encounter with someone, or something, in there that enlightened him.

For these reasons, I suggest that the globe held by Jesus in this painting represents both the aethereal sphere that surrounds the world, and a communications portal to the higher realms. The three white dots in a triangle are the key which opens the portal. (The X across the front of his body with a jewel embedded above it would have held significance for Leonardo as well). If he had incorporated refraction into the crystal/glass ball, it would have meant it was only reflecting what is in this lower mundane plane. The notion of a cosmic sphere being a gateway to another world (or dimension) is not a new one.

In an article I wrote for Atlantis Rising magazine some years ago titled Life from the Sun? (Issue #110 March 2015) I put forward the idea that the Sun may be an interstellar portal, a stargate connecting to us here on Earth and linking through cylindrical wormholes to other stars in the galaxy. I was not alone in my thinking – at the time, the concept was supported by other well-known researchers and bloggers such as Arjun Walia, Chad Stuemke and Scott C Waring.

The meaning of the three dots has been grappled with by others, mostly in a misguided way, in my opinion. Author and TV presenter William Henry (for whom I credit the picture above comparing the Salvator Mundi with a Bodhisattva holding a Chintamani) thinks the dots represent three stars of the Orion constellation, indicating in turn that Jesus might have come from Orion. I have found online the writings of Dr. Robert D. Elliott, who claims the dots represents three stars in the tail of the Leo the Lion constellation; however, why that should be of any relevance to us remains unclear.

If Leonardo was an adherent of the Pythagorean teachings and ancient mystery schools, he would have appreciated the meaning of archetypal symbols and geometry – particularly the points of the triangle, for both its mathematical value and its representation of the recurring theme of Trinity. I believe he was well-versed with the corresponding triune nature of humankind: the physical, psychic and spiritual. Despite being asked by the church on some occasions to include ‘God the Father’ in his art, he declined to do so, but he was happy to paint the Son and the Holy Spirit. His motto was “Saper Vedere”, “knowing how to see”; he believed that any phenomenon that could be seen, was a gateway to knowledge.

Like many others, I read Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code with interest – in fact I had been studying that theme since I first read Holy Blood, Holy Grail in 1983, to which Mr Brown owes his inspiration. However, the theories expressed in those writings did nothing to improve my life.

The Salvator Mundi, on the other hand, can be taken as a message from Leonardo that those who carried on, and handed down, the traditions of the ancient mystery schools (including Jesus, an Essene) were telling us: the way to the higher dimensions was to understand your own true nature.
“Man, Know Thyself.”

Signs: Birds Talk to Me

an 18th-century Icelandic manuscript. (Wikipedia Commons)

Every night about six o’clock
Birds come back to the pond to talk
They talk to me, birds to talk to me
If I go down on my knees
Private Universe lyrics (by Neil Finn / Crowded House)

Last week, a flock of birds demanded my attention in a way I could not ignore. Have you ever received messages from birds? It is more common than you might expect and, if your first reaction was to say ‘no,’ it could be more due to a simple failure of recognition.

Commonly, birds bring omens of impending loss or disaster, sometimes several days before the event. There have been times I’ve found a bird perched outside my front door, or even tapping with their beak on the window above my desk, and it is only a few days later when I learn of the passing of a friend that I make the connection. There are several theories as to how and why the phenomenon occurs… but first, allow me to describe my latest incident.

Early last week I was walking to a nearby supermarket to pick up a few groceries when, on a whim, I decided to lengthen the stroll before shopping, to take in the popular fishing decks below the Sundale bridge. Although it is technically winter, it was a sunny subtropical day with just a few wispy clouds adorning the deep blue sky. I approached a very short street that becomes a cul-de-sac at the waterfront on the Nerang river, curious to see if the locals were coming out to cast their fishing lines again after the coronavirus lockdown.

No sooner had I turned into the street when a flock of pigeons arrived seemingly out of nowhere to descend in a swirl around me, settling round about on the pavement and kerbside. My immediate thought was that it was just an awkward coincidence that I happened to reach that particular spot just as they were coming in to land, so I gently stepped my way through them to continue my walk.

After I’d progressed a mere twenty seconds and four or five metres on, the birds took to the air in unison and once again descended right over me, with a couple brushing my shoulders as they winged their way down to earth. This felt very much like one of those situations when someone brings chips onto the beach and is assailed by hungry seagulls, so I instinctively started patting my pockets to check if I was carrying anything they perceived to be edible. Finding nothing there I peeked into my shopping bag in case I had inadvertently left something in it that retained the scent of food. Finding it empty and odourless, I was puzzled as to what was attracting these feathered creatures. Another walker passing by in the opposite direction skirted around me and gave a big grin with a wave of his hand, as if in appreciation of the humour of my situation. The pigeons showed not the slightest interest in him.

The birds were silent as I picked my way through them to pursue my course, which took me to the end of the court at the river’s edge, close to where a couple of hopeful anglers stood with their rod and reels. For a third time the flock – which probably consisted of about two dozen pigeons – took flight from the previous spot to again come down around me, this time with more commotion than before. I had the impression of being rooted to the spot, at the centre of a swirling vortex of feathers, sensing that they wanted to inform me – somewhat forcefully – that this was no coincidence.

One of them hovered directly in front of me for a moment, vigorously flapping its wings in my face. I did not feel intimidated by this – as I kid, I bred pigeons in the back yard and know their nature. As they settled to encircle me on the ground, two of them starting cooing. Not in that proud, vociferous way they do in mating season, but in the gentle style they use to “talk” to each other. This in no way felt like a scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, yet I began to experience some frustration at not being able to interpret the message.

Remembering that communications which are not couched in human vocabulary often have to rest at the back of the mind for days, or even weeks, before the meaning presents itself clearly to us, I simply paused motionless for several minutes, looking around at my newfound friends, as we all blinked at each other in turn. When the time felt right, I circled round the end of the court to the other side, where I was able to make my way along the sidewalk underneath a line of leafy trees with low-hanging branches. The flock again took flight but were unable to follow, so they alighted on a stone embankment that inclined upward to the bridge.

The arboreal shelter allowed me to reach the rear entrance of the supermarket without further encountering the avian messengers. However, once inside the entrance hall, I sat for a while on one of the benches to reflect on the event, still unable to discern the message. Now, some days later, I believe it is becoming evident, just as I would suggest all of us can find meaning when birds talk to us. I’ll come back to that in a moment. First, is there any historical basis to support this kind of occurrence?

The first resource I turned to when I got home that day was the work of author Peter Kingsley who, I recalled, during a presentation at a Conference on Language and Spirituality, had said, “We all know what happened on September 11, 2001—or at least we know about the outer events. But three days before, on September 8, a raven came and told me what was going to happen.”

A raven told him? So, who is Peter Kingsley? Peter Kingsley PhD, an honorary professor at both Simon Fraser University in Canada and the University of New Mexico, has authored five books (of which I have four) including the acclaimed Reality and In the Dark Places of Wisdom. I learned of him through my appreciation of the pre-Socratic philosophers Parmenides and Empedocles, as he had written about them and the world they lived in two and a half thousand years ago. When I wrote regular articles for Insight Magazine (now defunct) from 2002 to 2005, I was privileged to make regular communications with Peter, who generously permitted me to reference his works as sources.

His presentation at that Conference I just mentioned was later published as an article, and I will continue with two paragraphs that follow his revelation about the raven:
And in that moment it spoke to me, inside me. Its message came straight through to me in English words: not in raven language, or in any indigenous language, but in words I could understand. It said to me, “I have come here to tell you that there is about to be terrible death and destruction.” And from the way it communicated I knew it was referring to death and destruction which would affect not me or my wife particularly, but the whole world.

“What does it mean when a bird talks? What does it mean when you are still enough to hear the bird talking? What really is happening when a raven comes and tells someone what is going to happen? And what is the language of birds—not the language of English or Spanish, or even the language of humans, but the language of the birds?”

Mr Kingsley is not alone in his experience and observations. A check with Wikipedia informs us that: In mythology, medieval literature and occultism, the language of the birds is postulated as a mystical, perfect divine language, Adamic language, Enochian, angelic language or a mythical or magical language used by birds to communicate with the initiated.

The language of birds in Greek mythology may be attained by magical means. Democritus, Anaximander, Apollonius of Tyana, Melampus and Aesopus were all said to have understood the birds… The ‘birds’ are also mentioned in Homer’s Odyssey.

So, birds are thought to be capable of bringing us omens and premonitions of the future. This does not imply that the creatures themselves are more intelligent than humans, but rather that they may be subject to non-physical impulses, perhaps used by higher intelligence as the bearers of messages that we might not otherwise take notice of.

Apollo’s sacred bird was said to be the raven. And of course, the behaviour of ravens is still thought to be ominous at the Tower of London to this very day. But any kind of bird could be chosen if non-human intelligences want to impart information to you.

In the past I have personally felt a communicative connection from magpies, ibises, currawongs, crows and now, pigeons. While seemingly less impressive than hawks or eagles, it must be remembered the humble pigeon possesses unique navigational skills – which include using the Sun as a guide – not to mention their usefulness as valuable carriers, even in war theatres. Plus, there is the advantage of being familiar and friendly to us humans.

I consulted Manly P Hall’s Secret Teachings of All Ages and note that he says, about birds in general, that they were “regarded as the appointed messengers of the tree spirits and Nature gods … and through their clear notes the gods themselves were said to speak.” (This turned out to be a key insight into my own avian encounter). Hall also mentions doves more specifically – which are part of the same family (Columbidae) as pigeons – and about them he writes: “The dove is also an emblem of wisdom, for it represents the power and order by which the lower worlds are maintained. It has long been accepted as a messenger of the divine will, and signifies the activity of God.”

After some meditation asking for assistance from guides, I have come to realize that my own encounter with the birds was Nature reaching out to me. Something of an internal conflict had been building up inside me in recent times, as I have come to focus my attention on the Sun and tried to lift my consciousness into the celestial realms of divine light, at the expense of my old appreciation of Nature.

When I listen to indigenous friends speak of their “connection to country,” I have thought privately to myself: No, I am no longer tied to the Earth; I set my sights on higher dimensions. The conundrum has been that I perceive some of those people to be more advanced on the spiritual path than myself. And I had been brushing that inner conflict aside, out of mind, rather than resolving it.

Then, after asking for higher counsel on the meaning of the message from the birds, I allowed myself to drift into a trance-like state to receive their guidance, with the reply coming through loud and clear. I have been turning my back on planetary Nature to my own detriment.

It was then I was drawn back to a volume on my bookshelf by Michael J Roads, Entering the Secret World of Nature. It is two years since I read it, but I was able to refer to notes I had made for a book review. Suddenly the pieces fell into place. There were a number of passages relevant to my present state of mind and I will quote just these few lines here: “It is really important for you to accept that we live in two hugely different worlds, and that they both occupy the exactly the same space/moment.” And: “What is Nature? Nature is the natural evolution of consciousness. What is humanity? Humanity is the creative evolution of consciousness. Both of these questions and answers apply only to life on planet Earth, in our particular part of the solar system.” Interested readers may find Michael’s works HERE.  

As the penny dropped, I felt a great sense of relief. It is not about choosing one world or the other. And it made sense that birds were used for the conveyance because the message was not from my usual guides, but from Nature itself. An additional insight was that being surrounded by birds in flight was not to be seen as an invasion of privacy, but as a protective formation. Here on the material plane where the Sun provides our Life-force, Nature safeguards us.

What should you do when birds talk to you? My suggestions are:

  1. Take notice and be aware that it is happening.
  2. Be calm and quiet and allow your intuition to flow.
  3. Send positive energy to the bird(s) and talk to them if it feels comfortable.
  4. If a significant event occurs within a few days, diarise it. See how often it happens.
  5. Should the meaning not be immediately apparent, meditate on it for a few days and think about it as you drift off to sleep.

Before publishing this blog, I thought I ought to take another walk back to the same spot to see if there was a recurrence of the meeting. As I strolled around the cul-de-sac this afternoon there were a couple of anglers with lines cast, a few seagulls and a pelican nearby, and four or five pigeons nestled on the beams below the bridge. A gloriously sunny yet uneventful winter’s afternoon. I suppose that once a message is absorbed, it does not need repeating.

Sun Vibes: “Love Hertz”

Image result for the frequency of love

Consider for a moment all the frequencies that travel through the air and bombard
your body on any given day:
from mobile phones, wi-fi, radio, microwaves and ⸻ coming soon ⸻ 5G. These manmade inventions all transmit at different frequencies that are constantly penetrating our brains. Modern devices emitting artificial electromagnetic radiation are said to be linked to anxiety, depression, insomnia, and even cancer.

Being attracted to the Sun as I am, I decided to check what, if any, frequencies linked it with us human beings, particularly with a view to reunifying the divided Self – Head and Heart. Of course, there is an infinite variety of frequencies that originate from the Sun and stream towards us, ranging from the extremely low infrasonic to the ultrasonic.

Once you start researching the matter, it becomes obvious that a lot of online bloggers are simply playing around with numbers. There are several different frequencies claimed to match the oscillation of the Sun – and the frequency of love. Some websites claim that frequencies such as 396, 639 and 963 hertz are beneficial for achieving your goals and attracting abundance (this includes the renowned LOA expert Bob Proctor) and, as you might expect, there are often soundtracks for sale to help you attune with them. I think this owes something to the concept allegedly stated by Nikola Tesla: “If you knew the magnificence of the three, six and nine, you would have a key to the universe.”

Often these recorded soundtracks are binaural, meaning you get different wavelengths through each ear using headphones – one in their chosen higher range and the other, for example, perhaps matching the brain’s Alpha pattern. A hertz, I should mention, simply means one cycle per second, and is named after the German physicist who identified it in the 19th century.

It seems to me that if you want to attune with another plane, you must be on the same frequency as it, just as a radio must be tuned into the wavelength of the transmitting station. So, I went searching for the frequency that best attunes our Heart and Head.

The Frequency of Love
The figure that keeps grabbing my attention is the 528Hz frequency. We owe the concept of this as being the frequency of love to Dr. Leonard Horowitz, who described it as the core of the “Musical Mathematical Matrix of Creation”. According to Dr. Horowitz, a pioneer in the search for the “lost” Solfeggio frequencies (the Do, Re Mi scales), 528Hz resonates at the heart of everything that exists in the Universe, including the Sun, pyramids, circles, squares, rainbows and snowflakes. He therefore considered 528Hz to be the frequency that the Sun and Nature vibrate at in their perfect state, stating “more than any sound previously discovered, it resonates at the heart of everything.”

Dr. Horowitz claimed 528Hz as the Love Frequency because, he said, any frequency other than this cannot be felt in the heart itself, and that the 528 frequencies are heard in the heart of everything- they can connect your heart with other hearts, and your heart to anything else.

So, what about its practical use in music, for which 440 or 444 Hz is generally used? For historical reasons, the root of the Western musical scale is not A, but C. In modern music, when we say something is in 528Hz, we mean that the guitars, bass and keyboards are all tuned to reference pitch A=444 instead of A=440, making the C note 528Hz.

Dr. Horowitz determined that certain Beatles recordings were performed in 528Hz frequency, the third note of the ancient Solfeggio scale (Mi) (- which also happens to be traditionally associated with Gregorian chants). Perhaps the most famous song composed in 528 Hz is John Lennon’s Imagine. He recorded it at A=444Hz (C=528Hz).

Paul McCartney often tuned to A=444Hz (C=528Hz) when playing live. However, the reason why you can’t just lay a 528Hz tone over any of McCartney’s songs and have them all fit, is because songs are in different keys within the 528/444 tuning. Just because McCartney is using that pitch standard, he can still be playing a song in another key. To explain further: For example, while the key of the song, “Please Please Me” is E, McCartney is playing the chords that revolve around the key of E, but his instruments are still tuned to reference pitch C=528/A=444Hz.

Since 528 resonates at the heart of everything, Dr. Horowitz reasons, it must be “pure tone love — the acoustic channel that links human hearts to the centre of creation, that is God’s heart, empowering loving intention to be expressed most powerfully by faithful prayer; commonly observed to manifest miracles.” The Love Frequency of 528Hz resonates, for example, at the heart of the Sun, as recorded by NASA scientists. This can be discerned by comparing the NASA recording with a 528-tuning fork. This fact is also reflected in every rainbow that refracts greenish-yellow light at its heart in 528nm.

Attuning Yourself to the Love Frequency
All things in our universe are constantly in motion, vibrating. Even objects that appear to be stationary are in fact vibrating, oscillating, resonating, at various frequencies. An interesting phenomenon occurs when different vibrating things/processes come into proximity: they will often start, after a short while, to vibrate together at the same frequency. In other words, they “sync up,” sometimes in ways that can seem mysterious. This phenomenon of spontaneous self-organization is also known as entrainment.

When frequencies are out-of-tune in the human body, or when optimal resonance is not taking place, illness and/or poor functioning is inevitable. The purpose of sound therapy is to re-introduce into the body the proper frequencies that are needed for improved physical, psychological and spiritual functioning. In sound therapy, when a vibratory force is induced in the human body an entrainment takes place within, a process that restores the missing order of frequencies to the systemic area, body part or field that is dysfunctional. This is accomplished via natural sympathetic resonance, or syncing up.

When trying to use this technique to consciously reconnect your Head and Heart, it is difficult to meditate on the 528Hz frequency without the aid of a musical tone. There are several different recordings of the sound available online. Here are a few links as examples.

Moving in a Heartbeat – Mind the Gap

The Death of a Partner Can Make Your Heartbeat Irregular

It should not surprise us, living as we do in this world of duality, to learn that in between every thought in our mind there is a “gap” of non-thought, and it has been demonstrated that mental activity is also affected by the gap in between out heartbeats. Recently I have been writing about the connection of Human Consciousness (entangled with the brain during our incarnation) and the Heart (as the gateway of the Vital Life Force). The importance of knowing about these gaps is that we may find the ‘pulse’ of our corresponding energy centres within them, as they occur in the functioning of both head and heart.

The human body depends on electromagnetic radiation waves from the Sun for its very existence and wellbeing, and while I have been in the process of researching the various frequencies that we are attuned to, I have come to realize that it is also subject to pulsating rhythms of flow and ebb.

The whole human entity – the physical body and its fields – is a vibratory complex of matter and energy, receiving pulsing acoustical vibrations, or sound waves, as well as light and heat from the Sun and cosmic rays. Although the electrical patterns of our brains cover a broad range of frequencies, they all work together in expressing the various aspects of what we know as Human Consciousness. As for the Vital Life Force, it is channelled through the pulsing heart.

While our heartbeat escapes our notice most of the time, it turns out that it does affect our powers of attention. This is according to a new study by researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences (MPI CBS), who report that several heartbeat-related effects influence our conscious perception.

Last year, some of the members of this team explored how fluctuations in heart activity govern our ability to consciously perceive an external stimulus. In an experiment, thirty-seven volunteers received mild electrical stimuli, delivered via electrode devices worn on their fingers.

It was found that volunteers were less likely to detect subtle electrical pulses during one phase of the heartbeat cycle, called systole. During systole, the heart muscle contracts, pumping blood into arteries. After this happens, diastole occurs; the heart relaxes after contracting, and its chambers fills up with blood once more.

What this showed from a scientific point of view was that humans exhibit less somatosensory perception (the sensation of things throughout the body) during systole than during diastole. In other words, we perceive things less at the moment that the heart clenches and pumps blood through the body and then, during the interval when the heart relaxes before the next heartbeat, we register sensations more clearly. Let’s call that the gap.

While we are awake there are many small and unnoticeable discontinuities of our awareness during so-called visual saccades (quick movements of eyes between phases of fixation in the same direction) when our conscious responsiveness is turned off.

When examining the relationship between heart and head, my real aim is looking at the deeper connection between the cardiac energetic field and the higher mind. Scientists have not satisfactorily explained the phenomenon of the Vital Life Force, and Consciousness has been equally evasive, earning it the tag The Hard Problem.

In other studies carried out by researchers who’ve tried to establish a link between the physical brain and consciousness, they invariably find the stumbling block to be in identifying where the outer objective consciousness ends and the subconscious begins. When I first set about investigating what I refer to as ‘the division of Self,’ I had thought it would involve tearing down the barrier between those two levels, so that conscious mind and subconscious become one.

Many others on similar quests have considered that a state of enlightenment or ‘cosmic consciousness’ might be attained by transcending the boundary of those two altogether, but it seems that this necessitates the annihilation of the “I Am,” whose very autonomy depends on the initial division. Not to mention that most of us would find the contents of our subconscious to be darkly disturbing – it could drive us mad if we opened the floodgate suddenly.

So, instead of delving into our subconscious mind, the pursuit of cosmic consciousness might be better served by looking into the gaps between thoughts – and heartbeats.

The concept of the gap has long been observed by the Japanese who, when referring to traditional arts and culture, use the word Ma (間), which can be roughly translated as gap, space or interval. Ma has sometimes been described as “an emptiness full of possibilities” or “the silence between the notes which make the music.” I like the second description because it alludes to the alternating occurrence of events and intervals.

The late Sogyal Rinpoche (author of the highly acclaimed The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying), said, “When one past thought has ceased and a future thought has not yet risen, in that gap, in between, isn’t there a consciousness of the present moment; fresh, virgin, unaltered by even a hair’s breadth of a concept, a luminous, naked awareness? Well, that is what Enlightened Awareness is!”

Our heart normally cycles at around 60 beats per minute, although it can reach double that rate when we are excited (which is why disco music in the 1970s often hit 120 beats per minute). However, when you slow your heartbeat down by controlled breathing, or when you are listening to a certain kind of music, or are praying, the cycles of your body and of your fields change accordingly. And what you discern physically can be altered by changing the oscillation or vibratory rate of the energy fields of the body or brain.

How might we become more aware during the continuity gaps in our thoughts and heartbeats and take some advantages from them? Following is just one suggestion.

Meditation on the Gaps in Our Mind and Heart

Find a comfortable position where you can sit undisturbed for around twenty minutes. A nice comfortable chair or cushions will work, or you can lean against the wall, or sit cross-legged on the floor.

Feel a line of energy that lifts you up as if you’re being raised by the crown of the head.
Feel your whole spine lengthen, and feel the alertness that comes with it.

Poised and alert, you are wide awake for this meditation, as you release the concerns of the day so that you can be completely present, here and now.

Inhale and exhale through the nose, making the breath deeper and fuller until you begin to feel its stillness fill you up. Concentrate your awareness in the very centre of your head.

Now, begin to notice your breath and its connection to your personal self.
Refining your awareness, follow the breath like a wise guide to that infinite place in the gap.
After inhalation, pause, and you may feel the space.
Let that gap between the breaths be a quiet point where you let go of thought.
It’s as if time stops at those places in between.
This is where your Human Earth-Spirit dwells in the gap of Consciousness.

Continue this for a few minutes, breathing in and out according to your natural timing.
Now, keeping the same rhythm, bring your awareness down to your heart.
After each inhalation, hold the breath for at least six pulses of the heart.
During the long gap between breaths, experience the shorter gaps between each heartbeat.
In the utter stillness of the gap you may hear a symphony of silence in the heart and mind.

After a few breaths, feel a point of light right in the centre of your heart.
This point of light expands to fill the heart, like a little sun, a tiny star point within you.
Pausing again after another inhalation, open to that light, bring your Human Consciousness into it, become the same as it, recognizing that it is your true Self.
You are this light. This light is you. You and the light are the same.

Feel that light expand within you now, as your heart opens, like the first light of dawn.
Light is shining in every direction now, from within and without.
Lines of energy are radiating in all directions from you.
You are a star yourself. This is your Soul-Star, your very Life Force.

You feel you could sit in those points in the gaps between – infinitely, if you wanted.
The reality of your Self is in the gaps. All outside is illusion.

As you slowly transition now out of this meditation, become aware of your body and your breath again. Opening your eyes slowly, feel yourself present.
Know that you can return to this space at any time with conscious breath.

[End of meditation]

If we continue to regularly refocus our attention like this, a new pattern will be established. And as we continue our practice, we’re bound to notice the gap. It’s unavoidable. It’s a natural progression on our path to reconnect the Life and Light of our true Self.

The frequency and duration of those spaces determine your ability to enjoy life, to feel an inner connectedness with other human beings as well as nature. It also determines the degree to which you are free of the brain-ego of the lower self.

Eckhart Tolle wrote, in his book A New Earth, “When you become conscious of these brief spaces as they happen naturally, they will lengthen, and as they do, you will experience with increasing frequency the joy of perceiving with little or no interference of thinking. The world around you then feels fresh, new, and alive. The more you perceive life through a mental screen of abstraction and conceptualization, the more lifeless and flat the world around you becomes.”
