Chakras

Chakra is the Sanskrit work for circular motion. A chakra is a spherical energy center that is forever in a fluctuating balance. The energy flowing through a chakra can be disrupted by physical, emotional, mental or spiritual blocks. The energy field of a chakra is affected by everything around us.

There are seven main chakras, and they are as follows:


1. coccyx (tail bone)

The coccyx chakra resonates with the energy of ontological knowledge, groundedness, presence and connection with elements around us. The healthy aura emitted by the coccyx is red in color. There are several gem stones, including red jasper, lapis lazuli, flame agate, ruby and azurite, whose energies resonate with the coccyx chakra.

2. sacrum

The sacrum chakra resonates with the energy of human emotions; sexuality; creativity and anger; fear; and intuitive knowledge regarding persons, places and things. The sacrum’s healthy aura is orange. The stones resonating with this chakra include opal, fire agate, rose quartz, carnelian and the actinolite in quartz.

3. solar plexus

The solar plexus chakra is the energy resonance for the power of human will, control and free will; accomplishment; and ego projections. Its healthy aura is yellow in color. Its gem stones of energy resonance are laguna agate, jasper, howlite, amber, morganite, heliodor and golden citrine.

4. heart

The heart chakra resonates with what it means to be human. Its healthy aura is a radiant green. Its gem stones of energy resonance are emerald, jade, ruby and plume agate.

5. throat

This chakra is the energy of speech and hearing; self-expression and communication in general; and human intention, definition and description. Its healthy aura color is indigo blue surrounding clear light. Its resonating energy gem stones are pearl, carnelian, turquoise, bloodstone, malachite and jasper.

6. brow

The brow chakra is the energy resonance of human inner sight, such as intuition, visions, dreams, charisma, emotional sensitivity and perception. Its healthy aura emits a deep sea blue. Gem stones resonating with the energy of the brow chakra include sapphire, sugilite, fluorite, azurite, lapis lazuli, opal, iolite, labradorite and celestite.

7. crown (top of the head)

This chakra resonates with the energy of wisdom, spiritual insight, aspirations and perception of truth. This chakra’s healthy aura is ultraviolet surrounding clear light. Gem stones resonating with the crown chakra include moldavite, lepidolite and danburite.

Rare Egyptian texts unveiled

Book of Thoth: In this two part article we examine two unique Egyptian papyri. The first is an ancient Egyptian text that has never been released into the public domain before, called the Darkest of Nights.The original papyrus is currently housed in the library at Alexandria and has been designated as being subject to restricted access by the Egyptian authorities and until today has never been freely circulated. ThothWeb’s Egyptologists have been granted exclusive access to this document, which they have duly translated.The Darkest of Nights is without doubt one of the most beautiful texts ever to emerge from ancient Egypt. It is both a spiritual and magickal text that details the love affair of Time and Eternity and concludes with an incantation – an Egyptian spell to unite the earthbound soul with its Ren, its true cosmic essence.

The text tells of the separation of the earthly and cosmic identity and instructs the reader as to how the two can be reunited. It also suggests that the spiritual leaders of 3,000 years ago themselves walked in ignorance of the truth, but that the truth is within our reach if we allow ourselves to let go of the shadows of illusion that use fear to anchor us to the physical world.The text concludes with a spell intended to reconnect the individual with his or her true name or Ren and in so doing, connect the cosmic and the physical.In Egyptian mythology it was by learning the ailing Ra's true cosmic Name that the goddess Isis was able to gain all his powers thus making her the most powerful magician in the universe and giving her the power of creation itself, enabling her to bring her beloved Osiris back from the dead.

JUST AN INTERESTING TEXT!

Zombies really exist. To find them you must travel to the western third of the island of Hispaniola. Here, you will find the country of Haiti. The first free black (Afro-Caribbean) republic in the world. A country that won its independence from France, then the most powerful country in Europe, by defeating Napoleon's Army in 1804. So while other West Indian nations were evolving under the careful eye of European land owners, Haiti pursued its own path. And having achieved independence at such an early date, Haiti has invented a culture that is unique in the world. A culture built through the syncretism of various African beliefs in conjunction with Native West Indian Taino and European influences. An all encompassing element of the culture is religion. Usually spelled "Voodoo" (though the actual pronunciation is closer to vodoun) these are actually the ceremonies in which practitioners are possessed by the loa, the spirits. As in all religions there exists a tension between good and evil. Most vodoun has little to do with sorcery and black magic. Zombies, however, are one of the exceptions.


The word ZOMBI probably comes from the Kongo word nzambi, which glosses as "spirit of a dead person." In Haiti a zombi is someone who has annoyed his or her family and community to the degree that they can no longer stand to live with this person. They respond by hiring a Bokor, a vodoun priest who practices black magic and sorcery, to turn them into a zombi. Through the application of a coup poudre (magic powder) the victim appears to die. They are then buried and within a few days are exhumed. Though still living, they remain under the Bokor's power until the Bokor dies.

Evidence grows at 'haunted' castle

Research at a 'haunted castle' in the Lake District has provided fresh evidence about the reasons for many reported ghostly sightings. An academic paper published in the current issue of the European Journal of Parapsychology suggests that a combination of an unusually high magnetic field and movement could account for many unusual experiences.The paper is based on research carried out at Muncaster Castle, reputedly one of Britain's most haunted castles. It was written by Dr Jason Braithwaite, a cognitive neuroscientist from the Behavioural Brain Sciences Centre at Birmingham University and Maurice Townsend, from the Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena.The research focused on the Castle's Tapestry Room, where there have been a particularly large number of unexplained events, with many of the most striking reports coming from overnight occupants of the Tapestry room bed. These have included the sounds of children crying and screaming, feelings of another presence in the room, of being watched and even touched, fleeting visual apparitions and the sound of footsteps. The reputation of the Tapestry Room at Muncaster Castle has meant that there is a waiting list of people who want to spend a night in the room to find out for themselves whether it really is haunted.The Penningtons, who own Muncaster Castle, have fully supported Dr Braithwaite's scientific research since its conception in the early 1990s. Peter Frost Pennington said: "People come from all over the world to visit the Castle or even stay in the Tapestry Room. Every year we get fresh reports of unusual phenomenon, for which there is apparently no rational explanation. So we are very keen to find out what is happening here."Dr Braithwaite carried out a number of tests around the bed in the Tapestry Room shortly before Halloween last year.

These tests revealed that there is a strong and severe deflection in the Earth's magnetic field around the bed, so much so that a magnetic compass is pulled away from north by over 90 degrees. The anomaly can still be detected up to two metres away from the bed.Using a custom made device called a magnetic anomaly detection system (MADS), Dr Braithwaite found that there are also significant variations in the magnetic field around the bed. Dr Braithwaite said these results may well explain many of the strange experiences that people have reported while staying in the room.

Adam the missing link

Evolution and Intelligent Design; could they both be teaching the truth? Author Marshall Klarfeld’s new book “ADAM, The Missing Link,” gives us evidence to show that both the Creationists and Evolutionists have the right idea; they just couldn’t get the puzzle pieces together. Thankfully Mr. Klarfeld was able to, and what emerged was an image of the role Extraterrestrials played in the design of the human race. It may sound like something out of science fiction, however the evidence, including 145 pictures of the symbols and achievements of the species that lived here on earth over 450,000 years ago. Fiction it is not.Here is a short story from "ADAM, The Missing Link". It should give some insight into the advanced technical skills that the Anunnaki used to fashion their landing platform. It is one of the major structures, left here on Planet Earth, that is proof that these amazing visitors were here on our planet.(Landing Platform) The colossal Roman ruin at Baalbek, Lebanon was built on a “tel” mound, indicating a place that had long been held sacred. Why the Romans built this largest and tallest temple, to their god Jupiter, 1500 miles from Rome, is the key question?

The Roman construction was built on top of an existing 5,000,000 square foot platform. The scale of the Roman project, so distant from the center of their empire, indicates that this site was extraordinarily sacred. Zecharia Sitchin’s research led him to conclude that the original platform was the major landing site of the Anunnaki. Pg.m shows an aerial view of the Roman ruins on top of “the landing platform”. The six columns with their capstones still attached, are the remains of the Jupiter Temple. The other temple was dedicated to Venus.

The origin of life
How did it get here? That is the biggest question in biology. A group of bacteria called mycoplasmas are, as far as we know, the simplest self-replicating organisms. Yet they are extraordinarily complex. One of them has recently had its entire genome sequenced: four hundred and seventy genes strung out along 580,070 DNA bases. Surely such a structure could not have arisen by the chance coming together of chemicals sloshing through the primordial soup? The astronomer Fred Hoyle has described the likelihood of random forces generating life as equivalent to the chances that a tornado sweeping through a junkyard might assemble a Boeing 747. The world is just not big enough to evolve life if it relied entirely on chance. Finding plausible conditions that generate the biochemicals necessary for life is hard enough. Stringing those biochemicals together to make life is vastly more difficult. Yet nature seems to have accomplished this feat very early in our planet’s history.

Four billion years ago the Earth was an inhospitable place: hot lava and sulphurous gasses bubbling through its thin crust, comets and meteorites bombarding its surface. By 3.8 billion years, conditions had settled down sufficiently to allow an ocean to form and life was at least possible. But rocks 3.8 billion years old show isotopic signatures of photosynthesis. Microbial fossils are visible in the earliest non-metamorphosed rocks (those that haven’t been melted) that are about 3.5 billion years old. These fossil microbes look like organisms alive today and are likely to have been just as complex. Life may be improbable, but it was quick.


Only the creationists persist with the belief that complex organisms can just pop into existence. For the rest of us, complex creatures must have evolved from simpler ones. We have evolved from primates, primates from shrew-like mammals, mammals from fish, fish from worms, worms from microbes. What makes this scenario so plausible is that each of the stepping-stones is itself a viable creature. Most are still alive today, surviving for the same reasons they evolved millions of years ago – because they work. But where are the simpler microbes? If self-replication can be achieved with fewer that four hundred and seventy genes, why doesn’t any microbe today manage that trick? In fact mycoplasmas don’t manage it very well, they are degenerate organisms, evolved from more complex bacteria called clostridia, by losing genes. They have lost so many genes that they only survive by adopting a parasitic lifestyle, relying on animal cells to make many of their biochemicals. They are unlikely denizens of the primordial mud.

There have been many attempts to answer the origin of life question, from life arriving from space, to life originating as clay minerals. None is very convincing. A relative newcomer to the field is complexity theory. This sister science of chaos theory, examines how complex interconnected systems generate relatively simple patterns of behaviour. The complexity guru, Stuart Kauffman, has proposed that life arose by ‘order from chaos’. But there is a fundamental difference between chaotic dynamics and life. The order we see in phenomena like anticyclones or the red spot of Jupiter is a kind of average order, only visible at the macroscopic level. At the microscopic level of individual particles, there is only chaotic motion. But life is different. A living cell is ordered right down to the level of that single molecule of DNA that orchestrates its every action. Life is not a product of chaos.

Living organisms are the only observable natural phenomena controlled by single particles dynamics. Your eye colour, shape of your nose, even perhaps aspects of your personality, has been determined by the motion of fundamental particles within the double helix that you inherited from your parents. This dependence on the dynamics of single particles brings life firmly under the sway of quantum mechanics.

Physicists who have struggled to come to terms with quantum mechanics have proposed a number of interpretations of quantum mechanics. In one, the world is not real until people look at it. In another, signals travel backwards in time to connect every particle in the universe. Hugh Everett III came up with one of the most remarkable theories. He claimed that we should take the equations of quantum mechanics at their face value. If the equations state that particles can be in two places at once, then we must accept that they can. To make the sums add up to our version of reality, Everett proposed that the two places were in parallel universes.

Revolutionary though this interpretation is, it has the support of many of today’s leading physicists. It claims is that everything that can happen does happen, in the ‘multiverse’. For reasons that are unclear, the large objects we see occupy only one slender branch, our universe, but the fundamental constituents of matter inhabit the entire multiverse.

Consider those chemicals sloshing through the primordial sea: billions of molecules colliding, combining, breaking and reforming to make trillions of new molecules. The likelihood of their random collisions generating a molecule, or even a microbe, complex enough to replicate itself is minute, far too low to have occurred on this planet or even a billion planets. But … and this is a crucial but, that probability is not zero. So long as the events took place in the quantum multiverse then everything that could happen would happen. If there is some non-zero probability that a fantastically improbable combination of molecular collisions could lead to life, then it WILL lead to life, in the multiverse. Life will emerge. And life, by replicating itself to generate larger more complex structures will crash out of the multiverse to yield the world we know. Any small pond could generate life, if it had access to the quantum multiverse.

Once you accept the reality of the multiverse then life becomes inevitable: it had to happen and it had to happen quickly. If you find the multiverse hard to swallow, then you can opt for another interpretation of quantum mechanics. But beware; you still have to account for that experiment with two holes. No one, not even Einstein, could come up with a version of reality less strange than quantum mechanics, yet one that still explained all the existing data. And although the interpretations of quantum mechanics differ in their view of the world, they all make precisely the same predictions as to how the world behaves. The scenario I have presented relates the origin of life within the multiverse, but backward in time signals or consciousness-dependent reality, will generate the same dynamics. In each, life is inevitable.

Earth and Saturn's moon Titan show striking similarities because both occupy "sweet spots" in our Solar System, researchers have said.
Many processes that occur on Earth also take place on this moon, say scientists participating in the US-European Cassini-Huygens mission.

Wind, rain and volcanism and tectonic activity all seem to play a role in shaping Titan's surface.

One scientist even sees a way that life could survive on the freezing world.

"Titan is perhaps the most Earth-like place in the Solar System other than Earth, in terms of the balance of processes," says Jonathan Lunine, of the University of Arizona, who is an interdisciplinary scientist for Cassini-Huygens.

Titan is perhaps the most Earth-like place in the Solar System other than Earth

Jonathan Lunine, University of Arizona
"Wind-driven processes, river channels, evidence of rain, possible lakes and geological features that may have to do with volcanism and tectonism."

Different chemistry

But the chemistry that drives these processes is radically different between the two worlds. For example, methane seems to perform many of the same roles on Titan that water plays on Earth.

Dr Lunine believes that Earth and Titan both have similar processes occurring because they occupy "sweet spots" in the Solar System. Being in one these spots requires striking a balance between size, or mass, and distance from the Sun.

Earth song

If humans had radio antennas instead of ears, we would hear a remarkable symphony of strange noises coming from our own planet. Scientists call them "tweeks," "whistlers" and "sferics." They sound like background music from a flamboyant science fiction film, but this is not science fiction. Earth's natural radio emissions are real and, although we're mostly unaware of them, they are around us all the time.

"Everyone's terrestrial environment almost literally sings with radio waves at audio frequencies," says Dennis Gallagher, a space physicist at the Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC). "Our ears can't detect radio waves directly, but we can convert them to sound waves with the aid of a very low frequency (VLF) radio receiver."

Earth song

The source of most VLF emissions on Earth is lightning. Lightning strokes emit a broadband pulse of radio waves, just as they unleash a visible flash of light. VLF signals from nearby lightning, heard through the loudspeaker of a radio, sound like bacon frying on a griddle or the crackling of a hot campfire. Space scientists call these sounds "sferics," short for atmospherics.

Even if there is no lighting in your area, you can still hear VLF crackles from storms thousands of kilometers away. Some sferics travel all the way around the Earth! Radio waves can propagate such great distances by bouncing back and forth between our planet's surface and the ionosphere -- a layer of the atmosphere ionized by solar ultraviolet radiation. The ionosphere, which begins about 90 km above the ground and extends to thousands of kilometers in altitude, makes a good over-the-horizon reflector of low frequency radio waves.

"The ionosphere and the surface of the Earth form a natural waveguide for VLF signals," explains Bill Taylor, a space scientist at the Goddard Space Flight Center. Sferics that travel very far through the waveguide become "tweeks," which produce a musical ricochet sound in the loudspeaker of a VLF receiver.

Ghost busting vicar called to pub

A pub owner called in the services of a vicar after claims ghosts were frightening her staff and customers. Julie Edwards, who runs the Thirsty Scholar in Wrexham, said she contacted her vicar after paranormal occurrences in the town centre pub. The Reverend Ron Evans carried out blessings at the pub which is believed to have once been used as a mortuary. Bizarre behaviour, including objects flying across rooms, have been witnessed by staff and customers. Ms Edwards, who has been running the pub since May, said there had been a number of strange sightings. "Crisps being thrown, glasses breaking in your hand - which was really, really scary - ladles being thrown across the room, beer mats on the floor, doors opening and shutting for no reason, the atmosphere going cold," she said. She also claimed she could feel spirits at around opening time leaving people feeling scared.

"I don't think it's just one ghost, I think it's quite a few that's here. "I think there's one who's not very friendly because of the things thrown and the glasses smashed and I think there's another one here because you don't always get that horrible feeling when things happen." Rumours about the pub's history suggest that it was once used as a mortuary, and in the cellar, there is thought to be an underground tunnel that leads to the former War Memorial Hospital, now Yale College. Ms Edwards became so concerned she called in the Reverend Ron Evans from Connah's Quay. "I rang the Parish Church and was put on to the Reverend Evans. He was very good and helped us out.

Where the devil is the exorcists convention?

Orthodontists have national conventions, as do lawyers and computer salespeople. So, some might say, why not exorcists?At the end of his weekly general audience on Wednesday Pope Benedict greeted Italian exorcists who, he disclosed, are currently having their national convention, presumably in Rome.The Pope encouraged them to "carry on their important work in the service of the Church."Problem was, that until the Pope spoke, few people outside the inner circle knew that a convention of Beelzebub busters was going on, presumably in Rome.And where are they holding it? A church, a hotel, a graveyard?"They try to keep these things quiet," said a Catholic professor who has dealings with exorcists.The Roman Catholic Church has shown growing interest in exorcism in Italy.In 1999, the Vatican issued its first updated ritual for exorcism since 1614 and warned that the devil is still at work.The official Roman Catholic exorcism starts with prayers, a blessing and sprinkling of holy water, the laying on of hands on the possessed, and the making of the sign of the cross.It ends with an "imperative formula" in which the devil is ordered to leave the possessed.The formula begins: "I order you, Satan..." It goes on to denounce Satan as "prince of the world" and "enemy of human salvation".

It ends: "Go back, Satan."A Vatican university announced last Thursday that for the second year running it will hold a course on exorcism and Satanism for Roman Catholic priests.The course starts next month at the Regina Apostolorum, one of Rome's most prestigious pontifical universities, and this year participants can take it not only in person at the Rome campus but via videoconference from other Italian cities.This, a university statement said, was because of great interest after last year's course, which was attended by nearly 130 people.The four-month course, which begins in October, is what the university calls inter-disciplinary. It includes medical, psychological and religious aspects of Satanism and exorcism.According to some estimates, as many as 5,000 people are thought to be members of Satanic cults in Italy with 17-to 25-year-olds making up three quarters of them.

Lights in the sky

The truth is out there -- and it may be as close as your own backyard. Two months ago, on July 14 at 11:45 p.m., Nova Williams was sitting with her dog on the backyard patio of her family's Toronto home when she saw a shooting star flash past her head. Only it wasn't a shooting star. Every year, in every corner of this country, hundreds of Canadians like Williams are seeing and reporting mysterious objects in the night sky. Glowing orange orbs. Delta-shaped wings. Silent cigar-shaped craft. Saucers and balls of coloured lights that hover, then move too quickly -- and in too many directions -- to be conventional aircraft, they claim. Even the fiercest of cynics would be hard-pressed to dismiss some of the UFO reports filed since 2000 with a variety of federal agencies and obtained by the Sun.

They include bizarre sightings by RCMP officers, air traffic controllers and dozens of military and commercial pilots -- even the pilot of an aircraft carrying the prime minister during a flight over Alberta in March 2004. Officially, Transport Canada and the department of national defence say they have no interest in UFO sightings, which they pass on to Chris Rutkowski, a lone astronomer and volunteer in Winnipeg who receives one or two reports a day.
