Posts Tagged ‘Age of Aquarius’
There is an on-going debate, varying opinions and much confusion about the Age of Aquarius and when it actually began. Let’s clear that up.
First of all, we need to understand the role of the Spring Equinox, which is also known as the Vernal Equinox. This is the moment each year when the Sun enters the first sign of the Zodiac as it traverses the Celestial Equator, Northbound, bringing longer days to the Northern Hemisphere. Quite simply, the Sun commences its annual pilgrimage through the twelve signs of the Zodiac, starting on March 20th every year, as the plane of the Earth’s Equator passes through the center of the Sun.

We all take for granted the sun’s diurnal and seasonal activity and its life-giving energy, but to many civilizations it was also its passage that marked the agricultural and seasonal alterations that were essential for survival and migration. For the ancients the Sun marked the passage of time, as it went through the twelve Celestial Houses of the Zodiac.
It is interesting to note that the Sun itself is one of the orbs that acquires the characteristics of every astrological house, or the personality of each zodiac sign it passes through. When we look deeper into the astrological methods used to divine the planets, we know, in part, the sun is not a planet, by a technical margin. It has a third path of travel known as the precession of the equinoxes, in which it retrogrades around the Zodiac through the twelve signs at the rate of one degree every 72 years.

There are seven spiritual paths, or the Seven Rays, that each one of us travels on. This goes on throughout our various incarnations, and spirit life, again and again, until we finally reach back to our Creator Source, or God.
We ultimately come full circle, after we start out as divine sparks of pure spirit energy. We then become enclosed in flesh bodies, experiencing all of the hardships of physical life, until the death of these bodies and returning to spirit once again. We reincarnate again, and again, to purify our spirits, so we could be next to our God Source, and achieve total eternal Bliss.
During these incarnations we work our way through the Seven Rays. I learned of the concept of the Seven Rays by studying the books of Alice Bailey, Elizabeth Clare Prophet, The Ascended Masters teachings, and The Aquarian Foundation. Read the rest of this entry »
The truth is that our ancestors created myths to encode important information for our benefit. Speaking the truth in those days resulted in death. An alternative was necessary. And so mythology conveys important messages to us from the past – a message of truth otherwise suppressed.
Today the truth is still suppressed in so many ways. There is the argument that our education systems and religious institutions do not teach us the truth. The most sickening recent examples of blatant suppression is that of radical religious extremism which has cost countless people their lives. I feel sad about how little we have done to stop these atrocities.
Unfortunately, you have to destroy a cancer. You cannot just ignore it like a minor case of the flu. You cannot just hope that it will go away. Recent terrorist attacks in the West patently illustrate that radicalism does indeed spread like a cancer. Radicalism is a dark force, just as cancer is a dark manifestation. It has to be eliminated.

Imagine coming into a room and strangers start confessing their past discretions, talking about being molested, admitting to addictions they’ve never told another living soul about, all without even telling you their name. Imagine hearing someone confess to a crime, or admit that they think their sister’s boyfriend was the one to kill her. This is what the spiritual conduit experiences every day.
Conduits are very rare. It is a life of sacrifice. There is no long line on the other side for souls waiting to volunteer as a conduit. It is hard earned. It is a painful, yet rewarding life path, but the rewards only come in the afterlife. Read the rest of this entry »
The fifth chakra, or Vishuddhi is located at the neck. It is symbolized by a silver crescent within a white circle, with 16 pale blue, or turquoise petals. The animal totem of the fifth chakra is the white elephant. The musical note that resonates with this chakra is “G”. It is considered the communication chakra and its color is blue.
The fifth chakra rules the shoulders (with the fourth chakra), as well as the neck, throat, vocal chords and esophagus. The corresponding gland is the thyroid. Foods to stimulate the fifth chakra include blueberries and water. Physically, Vishuddhi governs communication, emotionally it governs independence, mentally it governs fluent thought, and spiritually it governs a sense of security. Read the rest of this entry »
Concepts of the Divine, with an ever-changing definition, have been part of the human experience since the beginning of time. Most of the world’s people throughout history continue to recognize a place for divinity in life.
Our spiritual journey, throughout the ages, has been steeped in mystery and often, superstition and dogma. Organized religions have historically attempted to answer deep questions, and have sometimes provided comfort and solace to people during times of upheaval.
However, the most important questions have been left unanswered. For example, we know precious little about ancient, prehistoric cultures that worshiped the Sacred Feminine. Earliest recorded myths and legends have been lost or destroyed, and most stories that remain portray not only a divine battle of the sexes, but a difficult, contentious relationship between the divine and human beings.

I was thrilled recently to have coffee with a friend who shared with me the theory of the “Hundredth Monkey Effect“. I must admit, I had never heard or read anything in particular about it until today.
Serendipitously, I had been searching for a way to explain what I felt was happening with the current Global Shift of Cosmic Consciousness. People have and are referring to it as The Awakening, Ascension or the New Age. I see it as the end of individualism and the beginning of collectivism; not the “end of the world”, but a new beginning that is in process and has been for quite some time.
I began researching the Hundredth Monkey Effect and found varying opinions. Some think it to be only an urban legend. I’ve been involved in the paranormal investigation field for many years, and I agree that there is no exact science to prove the existence of life after death, ghosts, demons or psychokinesis. I have however had personal experiences with all these paranormal phenomena. Read the rest of this entry »
