Tips For Casting Real Spells That Work Magic

By Cerridwen Dano

Many people feel that a spell can be easily cast without much thought about it. That couldn't be further from the truth. Casting real spells involves a meticulous series of thoughts and considerations.

Magic spells are a set of words or rituals that the spell caster performs in order to change or gain something. It could involve having to methodically mix a potion or recite a series of words.

Real spells that work.
One of the most important parts of casting a real spell is to believe in it. Don't just say that you believe, but actually have that feeling in the deepest parts of you. If you don't truly believe in it then it won't be effective.

Next you will need to decide your intent. In other words, what do you want and what do you hope to accomplish by casting a spell? When it comes to real spells intent is everything.

Be patient for the results.
Whenever you cast a real spell it is important for you to have some patience. You probably won't see any results right away.

Once you have given it an ample amount of time to work and it still has not, then you may want to modify your spell.

It could be that your intent was not pure enough. Are you trying to get something for all of the wrong reasons? Are your intentions towards others as good as they need to be? You can't cast a spell for a purpose that may hurt someone else.

One more thing that could affect the outcome of your spell is that you may be requesting too much at once. Try to focus on the one thing that you are truly wanting.

Casting spells has been a practice that has lasted through many centuries. If you follow the steps of your spell precisely and have clearly defined intentions, then you will be able to cast a true real spell.

Are you just getting started casting magic spells, and have lots of questions? Are you wondering exactly what you're supposed to place on your altar, when to cast spells, and what in the world do you use that athame for? Are you looking for a love spell, or maybe a money spell? Do want to get in on the secrets that that other practicing witches try to keep from you?? Follow me to find all the real spells!

Unidentified Flying Objects - Are They Real?

By John Michael White

I notice many sightings all over the world in different places but it seems that the U.S.A. has a greater amount of sightings than anywhere else, especially through the Eastern and western states of America. I find myself asking the question, Why, and how can this be? Is there more to this than meets the eye.

Are these sightings that people see, really unidentified flying objects, or are they secret military aircraft of the future that America are designing and creating and experimenting with or something more mysterious. Maybe, maybe not. But it is food for thought.

Far back as I can remember since I was a young boy I have dreamed of truly experiencing and watching a UFO in the skies above me. But alas I have never had that opportunity, how sad, especially when I believe that they do exist. But I am also aware that not all sightings are true, that many of them are a hoax, which I find absolutely silly towards the people that obviously enjoy creating them. Why would they do such a thing, is it for power, control, fame, creating fear amongst us, or just for there childish fun. Who knows how they think or why they do these things, but it annoys me though, and a lot of other believers too I expect.

Getting back to sightings, now for instance at slightly different times on the same day in 2009 this year there were sightings in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Georgia, isn't that interesting. through different sources I have gathered, there is supposedly a secret base in Georgia where there is a test site for plasma and anti-gravity aircraft, experimental crafts and weapons, so these sightings in particular, were they unidentified flying objects or were they experimental craft.

More than likely the latter would suspect. But you need to use your own imagination to realize that many sightings in different states are probably not unidentified flying objects but secret experimental aircraft or similar. There are many supposedly secret underground military bases and aircraft bases that are experimenting with aircraft and other devices.

In Kokomo, Indiana people in that area have reported a 'hum' that has been so constant an annoying that has forced them to move away, it has also made many people sick. Reports indicate that it is coming from underground although nothing substantial has been proven, but it has been suggested that there is massive underground tunneling and excavating going on to use as underground containment and storage facilities.

There are many so called secret bases all over America which relate to unidentified flying objects, Dayton, Ohio has an air force repository, rumored to house alien craft and remains, stealth technology and pro-type craft. An air force base near Reno suspected UFO base with at least seven underground levels. There are to many more to mention in this article, but remember this the next time you see an unidentified flying object, especially anywhere in the states, step back and realize, that maybe, it could be something else, that is being kept secret from us, for reasons that only they know. We all remember something of Area 51 well at the time they insisted that it was all in our imagination, until Russian satellite photographs found there way into US sources, now it almost common knowledge.

So how many unidentified flying objects are there really. No one can say, but I suspect that it would be a very small percentage that are what we call alien air craft.

The rest is up to you to decide.

My name is John White and I find pleasure in writing articles and hope that in some way they are helpful and useful and that you enjoy taking the time to read them.

What Does the Empress Tarot Card Mean?

By Lisa M. Ray

The Empress is the fourth card in the tarot deck's Major Arcana. The number associated with her is three, as at her core level she is the point at which the sequence of the tarot begins to deal with the relationship between the spirit, mind, and body. The Empress herself can be said to represent the last of these three - the body, as well as the world of the physical at large.

As a matter of fact, we can go one step further than saying that the Empress represents the physical world. In many ways she actually is this very world and all that makes it what it is. She is wealth, sensory pleasure, and prosperity in all their many forms as well. The world she lives in is our world exactly as it was meant to be - ideal, beautiful, and bountiful. As such, she is also said to be a representation of motherhood, nature and the creation of life. She is, quite simply, abundance in all its many forms.

The figure of the Empress is traditionally portrayed as a young, beautiful woman reclining in a natural setting that is the very picture of the fruitful earth she is meant to represent. Her attire is regal in nature - very much the vestment of an Empress - and includes richly embroidered robes, a diadem, and a scepter. Next to her couch rests a shield bearing the symbol of Venus, highlighting her connection to the concepts of desire and love. Behind her, a field full of corn is ripening and becoming golden in the sun while a waterfall flows in the distance to represent fertility and life force. In some tarot representations, the Empress is also very appropriately depicted as pregnant.

The Empress is often described as someone who derives her royal status through being the daughter of Heaven and Earth and all of the symbols included in her tarot portrayal support this. She is the very heartbeat of the earth and of all life. She is the divine potential represented by the cards that came before made real and tangible.

When the Empress makes an appearance in a tarot spread, she is relatively easy to interpret. When representing someone other than the querent, she is almost always going to stand for a mother figure. If she's not the actual mother, then she is very likely someone who plays a similar role for the querent in one way or another. If the Empress is situated in such a way that she represents the querent herself, then it should be taken to mean that she is at a point in her life when she's feeling somewhat maternal, although this does not have to be in a traditional sense that revolves around children. She may also be feeling protective or "motherly" in regards to a new business venture or a new relationship.

When the Empress decides to make an appearance, the message she sends is to take into consideration all the lessons that she teaches. Whether the situation in question involves a new business, a life change, or an actual baby, the Empress reminds us - whether we're male or female - that if it is to thrive, it must be cared for, tended carefully, and nurtured until it reaches that next stage. However, it's also important to note that it's perfectly possible to be too protective. Too much care, attention, and nurturing could smother the potential of the project in question before it ever has a chance to realize its potential.

Palm Reading Demystified

By Louis Braille

For many centuries, man has been mystified by the science of palm reading or palmistry. It is true that many people have been trying to unravel the secret of palm reading in vain and taking a crack at it in an effort to prove it as rubbish. Yet over the years, nothing has happened to diminish the stature that palmistry has achieved in the minds of the common man.

On the other hand, the study of hand lines has been wrongly associated with black magic, errors and other superstitions that have gathered in the minds of the uninformed. These myths should be demystified for you to understand the gravity and benefits of this great science for the humankind. Let us look at the top five myths about palmistry that exist today and try to demystify them:

1. Palmistry can predict your future:

You can hear people predicting your life by just looking at your hands - mark that they have completely no knowledge about the science. If someone says that your life is going to be short just because your life line is short, stop panicking and put on your thinking caps. Palmistry, unlike common perceptions, is not the trick that foretells how many children you will have or reveal the spouse of your name. Palmistry actually shows you the current patterns and trends to tell you better the natural outcomes. It is eventually your own thoughts and actions that determine what your future will be like.

2. Hand Analysis is forbidden in the Bible:

It would be a good idea to actually read the Holy Scriptures and understand the meaning of the words using a biblical concordance handy. Though many like to play up the 'forbidden by church' wisdoms, the fact remains that most Pope in the Middle Ages exhibited an interest in Palmistry along with astrology and alchemy. Also the earliest manuscripts of palmistry were actually found in the European monasteries which support these revelations.

3. Your index finger predicts your spirituality:

In Palmistry, the index finger is an important sign of the body. It relates primarily to authority, ambition and ego of a human being. These are in no way the symbols that depict a person's spirituality. In short, a person's index finger cannot reveal the depth of sacred and religious thoughts of a person.

4. There is no scientific basis for palmistry:

No other myth can be more far from the truth. The lines of your hand represent the graphic picture of the circuits in your brain. The nerve groups that control your hand lies at the epicenter of the brain and that is why palmistry is such a big success.

5. Prehistoric cultures practiced palmistry:

Though most people love to advocate this theory, there are no actual facts to support such a theory. We can speculate on this subject as there is nothing written or otherwise evidence left by our ancestors about palmistry.

Today Palmistry is one of the most misunderstood branches of psychic sciences in the world. Understanding the science of palmistry will help you to better arm yourself against such mythical errors.

Vampirism And Modern Medical Science

Vampire myths are widespread throughout medieval history. Some stories date back as far as the 12th century. It's possible that these early stories of vampires were created by real medical circumstances.

Porphyria

There are numerous classifications of porphyria. Four of the classifications have symptoms of sunlight aversion: Porphyria Cutanea Tarda (PCT), Protoporphyria or Erythropoietic Protoporphyria (EPP), Variegate Porphyria, and Congenital Erythropoetic Porphyria (C.E.P.). Additional symptoms include hypertrichosis (excessive hair growth), red and sometimes bloody gums, and brown teeth. These symptoms mirror many vampire tales. Still, victims of porphyria don't desire or consume blood.

Catalepsy

Catalepsy is a tactile malady defined by a decreased sensitivity to stimuli in addition to muscular rigidity. Subjects with catalepsy don't respond to outside stimuli. They are aware of their environment but they can't speak or move. Episodes of catalepsy may last for a few minutes or for a few days.

In severe cases, a patient that is enduring a cataleptic attack will appear to be dead. Signs of life can only be identified by way of scientific medical equipment. Ancient sufferers of catalepsy could have been buried alive. Some time later, when patients regained muscular control patients most definitely would've attempted to escape from their coffins. Some vampire tales describe noises coming from newly buried coffins. Later, when local villagers dug up these graves and unlocked them, scoring marks were discovered on the interior, leading townspeople to conclude vampires were attempting to escape from their coffins.

Anemia

Anemia is a condition characterized by blood that doesn't have adequate red blood cells. Since red blood cells transfer oxygen all around the body, symptoms include fatigue, weakness, loss of appetite, and vertigo. These symptoms are a result of the body's organs not obtaining sufficient oxygen. These symptoms also resemble the symptoms of vampire victims in early legends. Anemia is a very common condition.

Rabies

Bats and Wolves both are oftentimes connected with vampires. They are common carriers of the disease rabies. This disease has symptoms that resemble vampirism. Hyper-sensitivity, a characteristic of rabies, might result in light or garlic repulsion. Other symptoms entail becoming nocturnal due to aberrant sleep patterns and hyper-sexuality. Rabies is spread by biting, and patients with rabies are oftentimes observed frothing at the mouth with blood.

Conclusion

Today's medical science may translate some of Europe's medieval vampire myths. Porphyria, catalepsy, anemia, and rabies are all explainable causes of early vampire myths. Villagers of the period who were short on medical education wouldn't comprehend these diseases and their symptoms. The result could be the vampire legends that ran rampant in Europe in the middle ages.

Are Colors Important in Feng Shui?

by Alvin Yap

Does color play an important role in Feng Shui? This is a very common question my clients ask me most of the time.

The answer to this question has to take into consideration the viewpoint of the practitioner who prescribes it. Some practitioners consider it relevant insofar as their application of Feng Shui is concerned whereas others may think colors as only having a psychological influence on people.

Based on my observation and research, colors do evokes certain moods in people when applied in line with the interior design of the living space. There are certain systems in Feng Shui where colors can be integrated into the applications based on the element of the person. In Chinese Astrology, a person has an inherent element known as life gua which is based on one of the five elements that made up the universe. These elements are wood, fire, earth, metal and water and there are intrinsic colors associated with each of them. Therefore, the choice of colors to use in a living space such as a bedroom can be based on the life kua of the person sleeping in it.

For example if your life gua number is 3 which is associated with the wood element, the best color for the bedroom is green. If your life gua is 9 which is associated with the fire element, the ideal color to use is red. If your life kua is 1 which is associated with the water element, then blue or black is good.

Another simple method of using colors considers the energy of the living space. In Feng Shui, there is a system known as Flying Stars which studies the energy or “qi” affecting nine sectors of a house. Flying Stars are therefore given numerals of 1 – 9. A star can fly into a sector and occupies it for a period of time as long as twenty years. For example, when there is a star of 1 sitting in a bedroom, the right color to use is blue. This is because the star of 1 is of the water element which is associated with blue color. A room can also have a star facing it which may carry the numeral 6. In Chinese metaphysics, metal produces water. Therefore, the room can also be painted with white color as white is associated with metal. Since both colors are in productive elemental relationship, the colors of the room are in harmony with one another and will bring positive vibes to the occupants of the room in terms of health.

There is also a system in Feng Shui known as Eight Mansions House Gua which may allow the Feng Shui practitioner to use colors that considers the interplay between the elements of the wandering star that occupies the bedroom and the element of the sector. You get another color option here.

There are some Feng Shui practitioners who employ Chinese Astrological system such as Ba Zi for recommending suitable colors based on the most favorable element in the natal chart of the residents.

The other school of thought concerns the use of physical items such as trinkets, ornaments and decorative earthenware as energy activators. For these practitioners who are more likely from the new aged school of Feng Shui, the preference for physical items are based on the common belief that these activators represents the elements that they need e.g. wind chime when a metal element is required or a jar of water when the water element is required.

When a practitioner uses colors arbitrarily without considering the various Feng Shui’s systems and their subtle impact on the energy of a living space, there may be conflicts. For example, a good color choice based on the Flying Star system may be bad from a Ba Zi perspective and vice versa. The secret is to find a color that blends harmoniously between two systems.

In Feng Shui, colors are not all that potent in enhancing the energy of a living space compared to the surrounding forms, the location of the main door, kitchen and bedrooms, the orientation of the main door, stove and beds.

Creatures of Cryptozoology - Bigfoot - Mothman - The Jersey Devil - and other Principalities

Robert Benjamin

Along with the thousands of reports about UFO's and Alien abductions, there has been as many or more reports of mysterious creatures sighted all over the Earth, since recorded history. There are reports of these creatures in all major areas or locations on the globe, these creatures are known as Cryptids or creatures of Cryptozoology.

Here are just some of the different creatures I am talking about: Almas - Bray Road Beast - Beast Of Gevaudan - Bigfoot - Chupacabra - Dover Demon - Jersey Devil - Loch Ness Monster - Mothman - Skinwalker - Springheel Jack - Wodewose - Yowie - and numerous others.

How can there be so many sightings of these creatures by people from every race and walk of life, some over hundreds of years. The only answer can be, the creatures are real. But, if such creatures are real, then why have we never found a dead Bigfoot or any scientific proof of any of the other creatures ?

My thoughts have taken me to the belief that these creatures are the same beings that pose as aliens, they are Fallen Angels and demons, indeed I believe these creatures of Cryptozoology are Spiritual beings.

Spiritual beings can change shape at will, and take on any form, from that of a creature from a nightmare to that of a beautiful woman. They can become blacker than the night, invisible, or solid as a rock. They can look like a triangle shaped UFO then change or morph into another shape. They can levitate, walk, run, fly, or disappear and travel to another part of the planet at the speed of a thought.

Spiritual creatures have great non-human strength. They can give off odors, both foul or as pleasant as a fresh flower. They can communicate by expressed words, thoughts (telepathy), they can speak foreign or lost languages that they have heard over hundreds or thousands of years. They know the past and maybe even some future events.

Spiritual creatures can leave physical traces of hairs from living animals, and even extinct animals, and they can leave hairs from genetically altered species. There will never be found a true Bigfoot hair, or bone, since they are not truly flesh and blood creatures. They are spiritual beings, and they do not have to conform to our laws of physics, unless they choose so.

Remember the Holy Bible says even Satan and his angels (spiritual creatures) can show themselves as angels of light. Spiritual creatures cannot be killed, captured or proven by any scientific equipment or means, unless they choose so.

Native Americans (Indians) have talked about Bigfoot and other cryptids for years. They know these beings are spiritual creatures that can change shape at will. Along with the bigfoot hot spots or areas of major sightings, there are also UFO sightings. Some folks have even spotted a bigfoot creature, in the area right after witnessing strange lights or some other UFO.

These strange beings, not being limited to Bigfoot, but numerous other strange creatures, seem to populate most major world areas. I believe this is a key or important bit of data that may be telling us what these beings are, I believe they are another class or group of fallen angels called Principalities.

The Bible tells us there are beings called Principalities. In Romans 8:38 it says - "I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, . . . shall be able to separate us from the love of God" (Rom 8:38). Some say that this verse is talking about powerful world leaders such as princes or presidents and kings, but I do not believe so. I believe it is talking about a powerful group of beings (fallen angels) that preside over regions of the earth. These beings control legions of lesser beings, or demons (evil spirits) under them in these areas of the world. These principalities quite likely, report directly to Satan and get their orders right from him.

Another Bible passage that makes me believe that these creatures of cryptozoology, spiritual beings are the Principalities mentioned in the Holy Bible is this passage in: Ephesians 6:12: "'For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places". That verse tells us what these Principalities truly are, they are NOT flesh and blood creatures, so how can they be earthly princes, presidents or kings ? They are indeed spiritual beings.

One particular being of Cryptozoology I want to talk a little about is the Mothman of Point Pleasant, West Virginia. Most of the highly reported mothman sightings and encounters occurred between November 12, 1966, and December 1967. Like in numerous Bigfoot sighting areas, the whole Point Pleasant, and mothman sighting area has been very active with UFO sightings going back 500 years to native American days.

One person who had a close encounter with the mothman reported: "It had a face that had sunken places for eyes, but it was clear they were looking at me and I looked at it. I was frozen with fear from the feeling of the evil power in the room. It was the personification of evil. I could do nothing, I was powerless, then over and over in my mind I kept saying the blood the blood has power dear Jesus, the blood of Jesus', then it was like pouring salt on a snail it went into nothing, and was gone"

Here, this being was defeated or repelled by using what is called 'Spiritual Weapons', using the power involved in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, and his name. The word of God tells us that demons (as well as fallen angels) tremble at the name of Jesus (James 2:19): "Because God highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name which is above all names (Philippians 2:9)."

The reason these principalities manifest as these monsters, is they feed off the fear that is given off by the humans that encounter them.

There is a website that has information on angels, fallen angels, ufos, secret groups, aliens, alien abductions, NWO, one world government, and much more, the website is called: The Great Deception, and can be found at this url: http://www.great-deception.com

Lynched witches accused of putting hex on sick boy

With lynch killings of so-called witches on the rise, a BBC correspondent today told his horrific story of how he saw five people accused of ‘bewitching’ an epileptic boy, being burned alive. As many as 150 elderly men and women accused of witchcraft have been lynched in Kenya, during the last six months, officials have said. Many were killed in gruesome ways, including being buried alive, by members of their own families and communities. Similar "witch" killings have happened in recent months in Nigeria and the Central African Republic.

Do You Have an H in Your Name Or Know Someone Who Does? Chaldean Numerology Tells You What it Means

By Heather Lagan

One of the more direct letters in the alphabet is the
H, which looks like a very short ladder -- and according to ancient
Chaldean numerology and script -- that is one of its meanings (the
other being an open window, which carries the same message - an open
window lets the fresh air in and provides an exit, while a closed
window produces stale air and no way out). At some point in their
lives, anyone with one or more ladders in their name(s) will have the
opportunity to ascend or descend its rungs...or to hem and haw, hedge
and hesitate for so long that the opportunity will pass them by.

The
choice for holders of the H, especially when it is the first letter, is
both a both a spiritual and physical one: climbing the ladder leads to
healing, hope and highs that are spiritual in nature while descending
the ladder leads to harmful habits, heavy hearts and hazards that are
physical in nature. Valued by the number 5, which seeks freedom,
independence, communication, changes and most importantly, stimulation
of the senses, the H is vulnerable to the need to experiment or escape
and as such, sometimes resides at the lower vibration of addiction and
toxic relationships until the strength is found to attempt, once more,
to rise above itself.

The H/5 is all about success and failure
and the decisions made leading to either. What is available to this
letter energy is success, health and harmony. What is also available to
it is failure, addiction and chaos.

As a person, the balanced H
is friendly, fun to be around, quite humorous (ha-ha), intelligent,
spiritual, nurturing, intuitive and empathic and open to anything that
quickens the senses, whether that be good food, drink, music or
art...an openness that also includes (perhaps unfortunately) a
predisposition toward realizing the ideal manifestation of love -- when
the H 'falls', it does so with its entire being, or, its 'whole heart'
which can have dramatic repercussions if the H does not heed the need
to look before it leaps!

A large part of the H is influenced by
emotions, therefore it is susceptible to hurt feelings, insecurities
and self-doubt that can easily lead to self-destructive patterns and
behaviour. If someone should 'shake their ladder' until the H loses its
grip, so to speak, the risk of depression, backsliding and reversal of
gained ground is possible...but that is all part of the journey
encompassed in the symbol of the ladder. Luckily, holders of the H
energy will usually have strong friendship bonds that will kick in when
slippage occurs: helping hands will often become their saving grace.

If,
like me, you have an H or two in your name, know this -- there is a
built-in safety feature in this character that gives us the resilience
to keep climbing: it allows us to see the top of the ladder, even when
we are standing at its base.

So the next time you feel the urge
to follow your heart -- even if you're afraid of heights -- go for it.
The only direction is up.

The Shaman's Lonesome Vigil

By Mikel G Bruce

It starts with a drip, a single solitary drop, one
tear gliding effortlessly down a ruddy cheek to plunge from protruding
chin, taking that last leap as a diver from a cliff wall, heralding the
arrival of so many more tears. It begins with just one, which fragments
into the multitude like splinters of reflective glass made from the
fall of a single mirror from the vanity face. The Tequihua begins with
a single brick and then more are laid to keep this one company and he
calls it a temple. In the great wide world beyond this little forest,
dear children, it starts with a single entity, the primal mother that
laughs herself into hysterics, splitting her guts so that her children
spill forth into being. So it is that here, when we call the
primordial, many are present, but the effort starts with one, just one,
the only one that you have any sway over, the only one that you can
look out from, the one that you have come to call yourself.

To
invoke something from outside of the dream it takes just one character
within it, the one that you perceive as you, to notice itself within a
dream. Every nightmare, every pleasant slumber is filled with many a
sordid creation. It takes just one of these to come alive and call out:
"Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!", then the others will follow.

This
one may be of any apparent form. It is this act of noticing the self
and remembering the dream that makes one a shaman. In any invocation,
it starts with an individual flaming heart that spills over so that it
breeds like wild fire among the participants. It starts with one, it
begins with you.

In the shaman's bag of tricks you will find
nothing at all, great heaping mounds of it. This is the bread that he
serves for his holy communion. He keeps nothing and consort endlessly
with no one, with the emptiness that envelops him, caressing him like
the cool palm of an elusive love. The shaman knows where the invocation
begins, in the hollow space within his cage of bone.

He keeps
himself in the company of many fragile splinters of nothingness and
calls these his family. To them he tells stories about Koyote the
Blind, who put out his own eyes by pushing them back into the soft
matter of his brain with his own thumbs, because it is always easier to
watch another do the necessary work than it is to do it one's self and
without eyes he would no longer be tempted to sit back and watch. In
his blindness he could see his family for what they were, nothing at
all, a hot breathed mass of emptiness which could yet do nothing. He
would have to do something for there was no one else to do it. He would
have to do the dances and tell the stories, build the fires, mix the
paints and cover the emptiness with his mark.

Alone, a solitary
star gleaming in an eternally black night, he danced the dances and
told the stories and burned brighter and brighter until the fabric of
creation caught fire and danced with him. Burning, burning, burning.
All the emptiness was filled with fire. Those many forgotten shards of
a broken mirror that he called family reflected back the flames that
roared before them joining in on the careening dance initiated by one
blind man of naual.

The shaman tells this story to the quiet,
obedient cast of characters sitting at his feet and does not dwell on
the notion that his story has fallen into the ears of emptiness about
him. He tells this and other stories with all the passion and finesse
that he would employ if he were certain that his one true love, the
mistress of the dream, were listening. If she was not alive in one of
those shards of nothingness before the telling, she may be there before
its end, flickering brightly.

It starts with a drip, a single
solitary drop, one tear gliding effortlessly down a ruddy cheek and
soon there is a downpour to moisten the black earth and call life up
from it's silent depths. This is the great work of the shaman, to make
one into many and many into one with a single beating heart.

The The Tequihua Foundation:
Manticore is a creature of legend. With the head of a man, the body of
a lion, and the tail of a dragon it is by nature an eater of humanity.
This being is and has ever been composed of three parts; the face of a
man, the most superficial aspect, the mortal component within this
trinity, the body of the lion, the regal and fierce protector, and the
dragon, most ancient and undying, These three beings work in
conjunction with each other part to bridge the gap between the
temporary and the eternal so that the blood of life may flow freely
from one dimension to the next. Manticore is three and Manticore is
one. Manticore may speak to you, may sing to you, may show you visions,
or do all three. These things it will do are done for the sake of
doing. It does not consider what effect it may cause. Manticore will
open a way for you if you are prepared to take the way it makes.


Is Levitation Possible Or is it an Illusion?

By William Allan

The question as it was posed: Is levitation possible or is it an illusion perpetrated by magicians  and how about telepathy, clairvoyance or remote viewing?

Yes and yes and yes and yes and yes.

They
are all possible, but herein lies the almost insurmountable
complications in understanding the reasons behind the ability to
levitate the human form. Levitation seems so unbelievable because it
violates one of the most sacred laws of the universe, the law of
gravity. You can measure the effects of the law of gravity and of
course, that has been done before, so that would lead one to believe
that the law of gravity cannot be negated, it is pervasive and
relentless. There is a caveat here, and that is that your universe
operates automatically on its own set of laws, but your universe is a
camouflage, an overlay of the basic "prime universe" that is the
"inside" of the outside physical universe, and it is upon this inside
prime universe that your physical universe is rooted and retains its
stability.

Other universal laws are "time, or cause and effect"
and "space" and as I have said before they are  both illusions and are
only relevant within your system. Other space civilizations, alien life
forms inhabiting other planets, planes and dimensions  may know nothing
of your version of time and space or if they do operate within some of
the root assumptions and requirements of time and space, they do so
while the are well aware that they are illusions, and they utilize
their effects for their own purposes, but are not bound to them as you
are. So what I am saying is that even though these laws may be very
convincing when you are forced to live by their dictates within the
physical system, these laws are not absolute, though they are apparent.

In
other words, these laws of gravity, time and space can be broken and on
occasion you can break the trance and see them for the illusion that
they are. You can get hints of the illusion in the dream state, when
you can experience a dream that took up a week of your physical
experience in only a few minutes of dream time and when you awake you
would  find that the week of dream experience did not cost you a week
of your life, but only minutes. In other words, you lived a week of
physical time in the dream experience, but only aged a few minutes.
This fact alone should convince you that time is relative and in a
larger context it is downright deceptive. In the dream state, when the
ego is stilled, time and space lose their hold on your conscious ego
and you are more free to experience the true "expansive present" that
is the only true time. You can in the dream state, walk down miles of
roads and never move your legs as you lie in bed, and in the same time
frame of only a few minutes, and never wear out any shoe leather, and
the miles of roads that you traverse are all contained in the confined
space of your bedroom,.

The reason that I point this out is that
many of the laws of your universe are unique to your system of reality,
and they cannot even be applied to other civilizations even in your own
universe. They only hold sway over your one small world and to other
physical phenomena  that your instruments allow you to perceive but
they do not apply to other planes and dimensions that exist in your
universe.

There are also "basic laws" of the inner universe and
these laws can be applied to all systems, worlds, universes, dimensions
and civilizations. You are also immersed in these basic inner universe
laws, but you are not aware of them at this time. These basic laws
cannot be negated or broken, the laws of your physical universe can be
broken on occasion they are, and when they are broken, you call the
experience anomalies or "Extra Sensual Perception" or ESP. These
"Paranormal" experiences are usually not planned in advance and usually
happen when they are least expected and that is why they are so hard to
duplicate for demonstration purposes. What you then refer to as ESP
occurrences, are spontaneous, instantaneous and originate from within
the inner universe of psychic reality and usually not from conscious
cognition.

The abilities of the human personality to sense things
other than physical objects and events has  long been known and these
abilities are inherent and latent within all consciousness to some
degree, but although they are retained in the subconscious of the human
species, they are closer to the surface of many of the animal species
that are not so limited by the pervasive hold of the human ego
consciousness. No one is born without these abilities as you might be
born without a leg for example, but some people have become more
proficient in the use of these psychic abilities. Humanity as you know
it is very dependent on the use of inner telepathic abilities to
provide the adhesiveness to the physical universe and its many
manifestations from the most distant star to the tree in your yard.
These and all other objects and events only make sense to your outer
perceptions, because they are all actually individual and differing in
some very important respects.

When all perceptions are shared
between all consciousness (including the consciousness of all living
things), and when each persons individual perception of an object, each
creating their own version of that object, the data is shared through
telepathic communication and  the differences begin to even out and
finally you will all see, hear, smell, touch and taste the same thing.
Your five senses alone could never come to this type of agreement on
the size, height, weight, color of objects if this kind of inner
telepathic communication did not act as some kind of moderator of
differing perceptions.

 If this commonality was not formed
through the use of telepathy, there could be no agreement or sharing of
data that this "common telepathic sharing" brings about. There is
another truth here that you have not yet learned and that is you have
NO thoughts are not intimately known to all those around you. Of course
this is known through inner communication, and does not usually rise to
the surface of ego consciousness. Some people, including some psychics
and mediums have developed their inner senses to the extent that they
can truly read your mind, but they are simply demonstrating to all what
is an inherent ability of all consciousness. This is the natural way of
communication of most other universal civilizations, and you will all 
learn to communicate naturally this way. In fact, upon death you will
transition to another plane where communication will be exclusively
telepathic. This will take some adjustment at first.

Clairvoyance
is another psychic ability that is quite common and is always used in
the background of all consciousness. That is why there will always be
those who for some strange unexplained reason did not take the flight
on the plane that crashed. You rationalize it off as a coincidence, a
freak of nature, but I tell you, it was no accident. All species have
the ability to, on occasion, to see into the future, but usually don't
realize that is what they are doing. The future exists NOW, just as
real as the present and the past. Your consciousness is tuned to
perceive only the present and due to  "memory", you can recall some of
the past, but you cannot see the future which exists now just as does
the past and present. Those who can see into the future are simply
better at sneaking a peek at future probabilities, sorting out the most
probable of all possibilities and selecting the most likely to be
actualized when that future time comes. (See  article on
probabilities). You are actually viewing "time" in slow motion,
experiencing one event at a time in a linear fashion when this is not
necessary and in fact, quite unusual in a universe full of what you
would call alien species. There is a better way.

Again, animals
have the innate ability, to sense future disasters and leave the
territory that will be affected well in advance of the actual event.
This happens regularly with impending floods, hurricanes and recently
happened in the Tsunami that devastated Banda Aceh, Indonesia, where
animals were seen leaving the area well in advance of the actual event.
For animals, the ability to sense some future events is because they
are not so limited by the ego consciousness that sometimes stifles the
human species, as the ego in performing its usual duties, rejects this
kind of clairvoyant information, because it will not allow certain
information to seep through to your conscious attention  that does not
come from physical sources. There are countless instances where people
have seen or viewed future events before they happened and I don't need
to go into them now, other than to say, in your nightly dreams, when
your pervasive and dominant ego is stilled, you regularly explore
future events and you could not do this if they did not already exist
in psychological fact and they in no uncertain terms exist just as real
as any physical event.

Levitation is the ability to "violate" the
law of gravity, to set aside its effects temporarily and raise your
body or a physical object from the earth. This is happens in the most
rare situations, but it does happen on occasion. This will be the most
difficult to explain, simply because you have been taught that nothing
can offset the apparent laws of the universe. First of all, you must
realize the each system of reality, even some that exist in the same
"space" as your earth, exist with their own specialized sets of
parameters for existence within their particular system. To project
your system's laws on other worlds and dimensions is folly and the laws
that seem so irrefutable to your :"earth" would have no validity in
other worlds even in your own universe. In other words, gravity which
seems so unavoidable on earth, may be expressed in other terms on other
planets or planes. Gravity may be a law prevalent in your universe, but
your universe is yours only, and others sharing your universe are not
bound by your adopted laws.

All "unnatural" paranormal acts and
events that now seem so unusual to you are unusual only because you do
not expect them to happen, so your ego consciousness screens and limits
what you can experience simply because it fears losing its dominance.
Paranormal events cannot be forced, or even predicted. How many times
have you had a hunch that came true? How many times have you said :"I
knew that?" How many times have you felt something about someone close
to you that turned out to be correct? How often, have you thought that
you "received" a message from someone who has recently died? How many
times have you thought that you have been somewhere or met someone
before? Many of these happenings are not imagined coincidences, though
you may think they are.

Your physical body is not solid, but all
of earths living species have agreed to pretend that they are for a
limited time at precise coordinates in time and space and the illusion
cannot be pierced except in unusual circumstances. You have created and
tuned your perceptions to play creative games with atoms, molecules and
cells in one gigantic co-operative effort to use them as building
blocks for more complicated life forms, but remember, the atoms
themselves are not any more solid than you are, but their effect gives
the impression of solidity.

Solidity, rigid, concrete appearing
objects are simply purposeful collections of swirling atoms driven by
self aware consciousness into, filling out meaningful, psychic,
physical patterns that achieve duration and continuity in time for all
to use and enjoy. Atoms are continually coming and going and the chair
that you sit on today is not the same chair you will sit on tomorrow,
but as some like to say, it will be close enough for government work.
Now, I don't expect to convince you in one  short article, that
everything that you experience is an illusion, but more precisely,
everything "physical" that you experience is something that you
hallucinate through the use of your senses. Gravity is a reality in
YOUR universe, but your universe is not the same universe of alien
civilizations and it is not the universe of your inner self. Your inner
self dwells in the inner universe that operates on its own set of laws
and they are quite different than yours.

Since you live in a
universe of its own appearances and parameters for existence,
generally, you must follow the rules, but the rules are not absolute,
but they are accepted by the ego consciousness whose job it is to
manipulate a physical identity in the physical system. When you learn
to disassociate your consciousness from everyday life, the more you can
learn to rely on your subconscious and inner senses, the more you  can
learn to trust your intuitions and hunches, the closer you will come to
the use of your paranormal senses that are latent in all personalities.

Finally,
you are not all at the same level of psychic sophistication because you
did not all enter the  system at the same time or the same level of
development and there are some among you that are more developed along
these lines than others. They have begun to somewhat break the
stranglehold of the pervasive outer ego and see through the illusion
more than others and they recognize that your world of appearances is
just that. These personalities are further along than others and they
have learned the lessons of manipulation of physical matter into
meaningful psychic patterns and this is the lesson you are all to learn
before you leave your physical (earth) system for more advanced
dimensions. These too are the individuals who are more psychically
developed and  have learned that the "physical laws" can be broken and
matter can indeed be manipulated to behave contrary to the physical
laws that govern your universe.

This is very important; you live
in a world of great expectations, and if you don't believe and expect
something, you won't see it. If you don't think it is possible to see
into the future, to communicate without words, to move and manipulate
matter with the mind, you will dismiss these occurrences as
coincidences, flukes or a psychic accident. There is one characteristic
common to those who regularly  experience paranormal events, they pay
attention. In other words, paranormal events are always happening, some
notice them and some don't.

Ancient Astronauts: Why Haven’t They Come Back?

Many people today believe that mankind was visited in ancient times by astronauts from other planets. There is significant evidence that renders this a plausible theory, including monolithic structures such as the pyramids that it is hard to believe were built with ancient techniques alone.

However, if one accepts that ancient humans were visited by extra-terrestrial beings, and also accepts that these beings revealed themselves to humans and even shared knowledge and engineering techniques, this does beg the question: why haven’t they returned? All of the evidence for ancient astronauts existing today is at least 2,000 years old – why did the visits stop.

There are a few theories as to why this is the case:
1) Desire not to interfere further
Of all the theories that are possible as to why there have been no further visits from extra-terrestrials, this is in many ways the most attractive – it’s probably the one we want to believe. This theory says that our ancient astronauts are currently simply observing as from a far, in the belief that further contact could be detrimental to our development as a species. If this theory is correct, perhaps the plan is to reestablish contact with us when we have achieved some technological goal, such as harnessing fusion power or developing faster-than-light travel.

2) Own civilizations have been wiped out
Given our own brushes with cataclysmic war in jus t the last hundred years, it’s not difficult to imagine that similar problems of conflict combined with devastating weapons would also exist on other planets. It’s not impossible therefore that the civilizations to which our ancient astronauts belonged have fallen victim to catastrophic war, and wiped themselves out.

3) Time and distance
If we assume that humans have been visited by extra-terrestrials in the past, this also assumes that the beings in question have mastered faster-than-light travel. We know too much about the planets in our vicinity for the beings in question to have come from them, so they must have come from much further afield. In order for this journey to be able to have been completed in a reason time in human terms, the technology of the craft involved must enable them to travel very quickly indeed.

However, perhaps we don’t fully understand the times and distances involved. Perhaps the beings in question mastered eternal or near-eternal life long ago, meaning that the time elapsed since they last visited us is perceived as a very short time to them. We just don’t know what we don’t know here.

White Magic Spell Chants

By Francesca Ashcroft

White magic spell chants remind you what the word
enchanting truly means! The flow of pure and good energy that runs
though a benevolent chant or incantation is wonderful to experience
first hand. There is also a great amount of flexibility within white
magic spell chants and so you are free to shape them or tailor them to
your needs. I have included here some basic tips to consider, leaving
the actual examples to the very end. In essence though, you will be
aiming to both channel and conjure potent energy forces. Here's how to
go about it:

1) At the heart of your white magic spell chants
must be a desire to use the universal powers for good only - which in
reality means you will channel respect and a sense of honour as
strongly as you will channel your intentions.

2) You can use Gods and Goddesses in your spell chants to harness the strength of their noble traits.

3)
Rhyming is not essential to white magic spell chants but it can help
you with one important ingredient - to build up momentum. This is what
you will want to create in an effective chant, something that sounds
and feels good to say. It will help you to really get absorbed and even
carried away by your spell work. There is a meditative state that can
come from chanting - think of the Buddhist chants and you will get an
idea of what you want to aim for.

4) Use beads or something
similar that you can use along with your words. You may associate this
with the Catholic rosary beads and the principal is very much the same.
It will help centre you and give you a focal point if you need one. But
most importantly it will add to the rhythm and give your chant a pulse.

5)
Walk in a circle or with purpose. This will depend of course on you
having somewhere private enough to do this but it will really increase
the power of your white magic spells chants in that you will be
engaging in your physicality. It is the perfect combination of body and
soul.

6) White magic spell chants can take the shape of words
that build to a peak, affirmations or as a simple sentence repeated as
many times as you feel is necessary.

By words that build to a
peak, I mean that you can start with 'I pledge...I pledge to be
true...I pledge to be true to my heart...I pledge to be true to my
heart and follow my dreams'. You will be building your intentions or
goals within the words to replicate the pattern of success that you
hope to see come about in your life. As you hope to accumulate success
by your hard work in reality, your chant will reflect this by becoming
more with every stage.

For affirmations you will need to
establish where your belief in yourself is letting you down. For
example, if it is because you don't believe people like you, you will
need to chant something like, 'I am worthy of the love and respect of
others'.

Repeated sentences are my personal favourite white magic
spell chants! I can lose myself totally in them. Keep them simple, you
don't need to put all of the details into your wording. I prefer to
meditate before hand in order to get my purpose fixed into my mind. I
then take any visual cues I might need and place them in front of me.
You might like to get a rose for anything love related for instance.
Then, having put in the work up front I can then simply relax and enjoy
the incantation - something as simply as 'I will flourish' or 'I will
conquer' will then be as effective as anything.

I hope you enjoy working on your white magic spell chants and find every success in them!

Ghosts of Chillingham Castle

By Jackie Reynolds

Chillingham Castle, Northumberland, UK is said to be
the most haunted castle in the UK and not surprisingly since the castle
houses dark dungeons and macabre torture chambers. This ancient
fortress dates back to 1246, when the Earl Grey lords built this
remarkable building and where the Earl Grey ancestors have resided for
centuries.

The castle is presently the home of Sir Humphry
Wakefield Bt., his wife The Hon. Lady Wakefield and their family. The
family claim it is the most haunted castle because of the many ghosts
which frequently haunt their home.

The most notable ghostly
apparition is the 'blue boy' (or 'radiant boy') who is said to haunt
the castle's Pink Room. Many guests, whilst occupying the room, have
heard terrifying wailing sounds soon to be followed by a halo of blue
light appearing above their bed.

Although that particular
haunting ended when a gruesome discovery during renovation work
revealed the bones of a young boy and a man who had been bricked inside
a wall. It was intended that no one should ever hear their piteous
cries for help, as the wall was built 10 feet thick.

This was not
the end to the hauntings in Chillingham Castle. The owners have also
witnessed a much more sinister energy which wanders the halls...the
terryfying spectre of the once evil torturer - John Sage.

JOHN SAGE - A GHOST OF EVIL PAST

When
nightime falls around Chillingham Castle, one of the most feared sounds
to be heard on occasions is that of 'something' slowly dragging its
foot as it wanders the corridors. It is believed to be the spirit of
former Lieutenant, John Sage who earned the nickname 'dragfoot', when
in life, his leg was injured by a spear during his final battle in the
ongoing wars with his Scottish neighbours.

After his injury he
was desperate for a position of work and was proud to be given the
title of Chillingham Castle torturer by the castle owner Edward
Longshanks (1200 AD). Sage was a monster of a man and his gruesome work
would give him immense satisfaction for the next 3 years, where he
would go on to torture at least 50 of his Scottish enemies per week.

Sage
would revel as the Scots were captured and tossed into the castle's
dungeons. These poor souls would wish they had perished on the
battlefield, as Sage was renowned for carrying out the most hideous
tortures in history. One torture device came to be known as one of the
most feared...'the cage'. This apparatus would trap its victim and then
be placed over a blazing fire - roasting the captive for hours, whilst
Sage sat studying his enemy - writhing and screaming for their death.

Sage's
insatiable thirst for torture would eventually lead to his downfall,
when one day his lover Elizabeth Charlton paid him a visit. During
their sexual liaison, Sage decided to place Elizabeth on one of his
other torture devices - 'the rack'. Sage then began strangling her
during the height of her sexual pleasure, but he went too far and
accidentally killed her.

Elizabeth's father (a Border Reiver,
clan leader and outlaw), upon hearing of his daughter's death, warned
the now almost penniless Longshanks, if he did not have Sage killed he
would join in an allied attack with the Scots against the Castle.

Longshanks'
dwindling resources due to the war and the fact that the Border
Reiver's were a powerful force gave him little choice but to put Sage
to death. He was hanged on the grounds of the castle on 'Devil's Mile'
(aka, Devil's Walk) before a crowd of jeering onlookers.

As
Sage's body still twitched with life, the crowd set about him - slicing
pieces from his body, including his nose, toes, and testicles. A rather
'cutting' fate, some may say, for one who's greatest rapture was the
sight of an ungodly end.

Horoscope For July 2009

By Maya White

Aries - (March 20 - April 19) It's about time you got
that raise, Aries. I know you've been amazingly productive and
agonizingly efficient; finally your well deserved bonus is set for
delivery. Mars trine Pluto on the 4th holds a promise of financial
opportunity. New horizons on the job come with a new set of
responsibilities, however. Take them on in your best fashion -
delegate. Really, that is part of your cosmic job description. You are
a leader and an initiator; so it's ok to ask for and receive help in
the detail department. Plus, travel may become a new part of your
world. Again, ask for assistance; you need someone to help with all of
the new demands which are entering into your realm. The New Moon of
June 22nd brings substance to irrevocable changes. Move ahead with
spiritual grace and all of your physical vitality.

Taurus -
(April 20 - May 20) Hopefully you have cleaned out those closets and
shredded the old papers; it's time for the NEW kid in town to debut.
Old situations have simply served their purposes, and it's time to let
them go. Not always easy for Taurus, I know. The secret to success lies
in your ability to move ahead with joy and a sense of freedom. If
everything in your life looks the same, it's time to do something wild
and crazy. To make it easier, the stars are lending their grace of
perfect timing this month. Release doubt and embrace motion. Strategic
days to take action are June 8th, the 18th & 19th , and the 22nd
& 23rd. The first quarter moon in Libra on the 29th is your time to
check in on how you're doing on your new self-creation. The questions
to ask are: are you having fun? And, have you made the necessary
changes?

Gemini - (May 21 - June 20) I'll bet you're happy
Mercury is direct this month! So, you cleaned up old stuff in May, and
now you are clear and ready for action. The Universe supports your
decision with a stellar sextile, the aspect of opportunity, from Venus
to Jupiter on the 2nd. My insider secret - there was never a better
month for networking, as friends and acquaintances serve to propel you
along your career path. (One exception is if you were born May 28 or 29
- a friend may disappoint you) The Full Moon of June 7th highlights
your 7th house of personal and business partnerships, too, so get out
early and often. If you're looking for a new work situation, this is
the perfect month to seal the deal, but not until the 23rd. Keep the
news to yourself on the 26th, when everything you say comes out wrong;
just stay home that day, or give yourself an early vacation. By the
30th, everybody is happy again.

Cancer - (June 21 - July 21) No
doubt you feel as though you have given all that you can and it's time
to renew yourself. If you can just shift into overdrive, and move into
that space of efficiency while maintaining inner relaxation, you will
be fine. I predict a culmination of the situation with the Full Moon of
June 7th. This was a major phase of your karmic duty; one which you can
look back upon and know that you did your best. The 18th and 19th are
excellent days to unwind, find a secret cove by the sea and plan some
cozy meals with someone who really understands you. The 22nd brings a
New Moon in your sign, and this one brings a major new beginning. Tend
to necessary business early in the week, because regardless of your
best efforts to communicate, you will be misunderstood on the 26th.
Your rewards are coming!

Leo - (July 22 - August 22) Your
instincts are sharp now, Leo. This intuition, combined with your skills
and knowledge can make you practically unstoppable. As the revered
asteroid goddess Pallas Athena finally moves into your sign, it's time
to put that long held dream into action. One of her teachings is that
of creating practical gifts which serve others; things like pottery,
weaving, and finalizing your web site which offers easy access to
purchases. Then, you really harvest her gifts. This month is more of a
time for behind the scenes work, however. The New Moon of June 22
initiates your solar 12th house of solitude and service, and the
eclipses of July will open a door to plans gone awry. Preparation
serves you well now; get ready for a late August debut.

Virgo -
(August 23 - September 22) Being co-ruled by Mercury and the modern
asteroid Chiron, your sign is one of delicate balance. You must be
discriminating because if you are not, clarity leaves and chaos reigns.
Some questions simply remain unanswered now, and antagonizing your mind
for an answer is counterproductive. Instead, try deep relaxation on a
moment to moment basis; when you feel that inner rubber band tighten up
- breathe, and let go. That way, you can take advantage of the good
things coming your way this month! On June 4th, Mars and Pluto give you
intensity and drive, and on the 8th, Venus helps you shine in a big
way. With both Mars and Venus in Taurus, earth signs have the blessings
of flow and constancy right now. It's just that sometimes we don't know
a good thing when we have it. Relax, get some Bach Flower Rescue
Remedy, and get ready to rock -n- roll.

Libra - (September 23 -
October 21) Falling off a log is easy, but wading out of the water is
not so much fun. Have you been sleeping, Libra? The waves have been
slapping a gentle rhythm on your hull, keeping in time with the
mermaid's song. It all looks so good on paper, but what about the elbow
grease required to power the monkey wrench. Darn, I hate it when that
happens. Hold a steady course. These setbacks are only temporary, and
you are learning more and more about how to set sail and chart your
course to freedom. Your vision is pure. Pay attention on the 17th when
you are presented with a stellar partnership opportunity which
solidifies by the 30th. One shining light of the upcoming New Age is
that you will never again walk alone, unless it is by choice.

Scorpio
- (October 22 - November 21) Put it together, Scorpio - put IT
together. Somebody is waiting for your input. Like the mythological
Jason on his quest for the Golden Fleece, you have met with tests and
challenges. However, you have also had divine intervention and
assistance, especially when you remembered to ask for it. And, like
Jason, you can benefit from good practical advice. Unfortunately, Jason
died alone, a victim of his own disloyalty to the goddess Medea. As we
move into a rectification of heaven and earth, please consider that the
old stories no longer apply. A test of loyalty is just that - a test.
And I know you can pass it with flying colors. Your most powerful
detractor is your own self doubt; and your desire for a private life.
Soon, you will have your cake, and you can eat it too!

Sagittarius
- (November 22- December 20) Does it seem that these are the best and
worst of times, and often in the same day? So much of this boils down
to facts and figures, and I have a nagging feeling that you are not
getting the whole story. When you look closely, you will find that what
is missing provides as much information as the details which are
presented. Saturn deals the winning hand here; this translates into
holding the course and building upon what you have already established.
This is NOT a good month for long distance travel, either. Thankfully,
it looks like your wanderlust is under control right now. Sometimes the
KISS solution is the most obvious; this is one of those times.

Capricorn
- (December 21 - January 19) Wouldn't it be great if we could just buy
our own printing presses and manufacture money? The right idea which
helps you earn necessary money has come to fruition; this is centered
in a past lifetime skill which you have already mastered and are now
ready to bring forth as a contribution to your prosperity. And,
currency is only a part of the picture. As you play your cards, you
create something slightly different - how about a bartering empire? The
8th, 9th, and 10th, when the Moon is in your sign this month, are good
days to put your plans to paper. I see you moving off the 'grid' and
into self sufficiency; leaning more on trades and goods and moving away
from just cash. This shift is not just for you. It also serves others,
yet the beauty of this is that it deepens your own skills and abilities.

Aquarius
- (January 20 - February 17) With Jupiter and Neptune dancing together
in your sign, the past few months have no doubt brought on some roller
coaster rides. Together, apart, and back again; some great days, and
some - not so good ones. Neptune is a difficult planet, especially for
you, a sign ruled in ancient astrology by structured and predictable
Saturn. With Jupiter in the mix, you want to do your best. Things are
going good, and then damn, there comes the x-factor, and your efforts
evaporate. Practice your new level of authority on the 11th when unruly
factions rise up; they really just need strong leadership. Consider
taking on the role of high priest or priestess. You must transcend your
logical mind with its perceived limitations to deepen your mantle of
power. And, this is core spiritual work, not just donning a robe and
scepter.

Pisces - (February 18 - March 19) Just a little bit of
strategic planning goes a long way now, Pisces. The pieces will fit
together like a grand puzzle if you only participate in the play, and
you receive a major portion on the 13th. You can take the role either
of a game master, or an innocent bystander. The bystander is at the
mercy of the whims of others; the master makes his or her moves in
fitting fashion. Some people master these maneuvers early in life,
however, self destructive tendencies still keep them returning to
bystander mode. The core issue is your readiness to move into new
levels of power and self acceptance. And, the problem is that there is
really nowhere else to go; it's either up or down because this moving
sideways has run its course. Your creativity peaks on the 22nd; make it
real on the 23rd.

Psychic Protection - What You Need to Know Before It's Too Late

By Daniel Hinds

Psychic protection is an necessary part of your
mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. As you understand the
universal laws, learn the power of thoughts and intention you will come
to realize just how important a psychic attack can be.

There are
many people who are under the false assumption that an attack can
happen on by a practicing witch or some psychic but this is not true.
Every day you are under the effects of psychic disturbances. If you are
dealing with angry house mates, disgruntled employs, competitive
friends or jealous people then you had better make it your duty to
learn the secrets of psychic protection.

Many new agers believe
that if they just surround themselves with light and love they cannot
be harmed. While that is a good idea and practice it is not sufficient.
You see psychic protection requires several levels of protection that
go quite deep. If you apply one technique but leave the other doors
open for an attack then you are not fully protected.

It is
necessary to learn the several layers of protection and apply them all
at once. All to often people wait until things in their life are very
bad. They may begin to feel that they are out of control and simply
unable to regain their strength to make things right. By this point a
person's energy may be so low that it could be very hard to do the
necessary steps to help themselves.

Psychic Attacks can really Destroy Your Life. Here are a few Signs to Look For:

Are you surrounded by others who leave you feeling uneasy? They
smile to your face but somehow you know that something is not right.

Do
you experience numerous frightening dreams of being harmed or being
chased? Dreams are always an indication of what is going on in your
life at a level that you may not be aware of when you are occupied with
your daily life.

Do you feel tired but not in a physical way,
just drained energetically and mentally without engaging in anything
strenuous? When you are under an attack this causes you to lose lots of
energy. When you energy is low it allows all sorts of poisonous attacks
to enter your mind affecting your total wellbeing. In the Psychic
Shield ecourse it is broken down in sections that take you from the
discovery of the attack to releasing it, followed by creating a very
strong field of psychic protection. When you have strengthened your
aura you can better heal yourself and also better attract the things
you want in your life.

Psychic protection should become a way of
life just like physical hygiene. The more you practice some form of
psychic protection the better able you are to handle the things which
come your way. You may be under attack right now and not even know it.

Psychic Protection is a Necessity In Order to Manifesting the Things You Want. It has everything to do With Protecting YOUR Precious Vital Life force Energy.

Protection. Also Learn the Secrets that many teachers will Not Tell you

AURAS, HOW TO SEE THEM AND WHAT THE COLOURS MEAN

by BY LINDA PRESTON

You may never have seen or felt your own aura but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

You can if you wish establish a strong connection with it.

Why not see your aura as your own personal energy shield. It protects you from harmful influences from people and the world around you. So the sooner you recognize and honour it, the better you will feel.

You may never have seen or felt your own aura but that doesn't mean that it doesn't exist.

You can, if you wish establish a strong connection with it.

Why not see your aura as your own personal energy shield. It protects you from harmful influences from people and the world around you. So the sooner you recognize and honour it, the better you will feel.

TUNING INTO AURAS

It is much easier to see an aura, whether it is your own or someone else's than you might imagine. For most people, it takes only a couple of minutes to detect an aura. Once you have made this initial leap from seeing nothing to seeing something, you are on a fascinating path to seeing auras in more detail. You will be to notice them surrounding everyone you meet.

HOW TO SEE AURAS

There are two ways you might see auras. The first is by simply noticing it with your eyes, and the second is by observing it with your mind's eye. Some people find they get better results from working with the latter i.e. inner vision.

It doesn't matter which method you use - there is no right or wrong way to see auras it's just whichever method works best for you.

HOW TO SEE AURAS WITH YOUR INNER VISION

You already use your inner vision, often without being aware of it when you think of something that triggers your imagination. For example when you remember an event you are seeing it with your inner vision. You do not make any special effort to do this - it just comes naturally.

This method works equally well with auras. All you need to do is look closely at the person or animal whose aura you wish to study, fix their image in your mind, and then look away. Next, close your eyes and remember the image. You might see it in detail or simply in silhouette. Can you see the aura surrounding it? Believe in the image that comes to you and resist any temptation to alter it in any way if it does not match what you were expecting to see. Write down what you have observed either in words or pictures, so you can compare notes for next time you practice this exercise. Keep practicing and it will become second nature to you.

WHAT THE COLOURS MEAN

Although auras can change colour according to our moods and our physical and emotional well being, we generally have one colour that is always present in our auras. This colour says a lot about us, because it describes our attitudes and beliefs. The interpretations given below are only suggestions but I have found them useful; however you may begin to develop your own ideas once you start to develop your aura reading skills.

RED

This is a vibrant colour to find in anybody's aura. It indicates that the individual is enterprising, dynamic & competitive. Often they enjoy being active and have a love of sports. Clear red indicates someone who loves life and lives it to the full. However, a dull red indicates anger or resentment.

ORANGE

Orange is a lovely warm and energising colour and someone who has an orange aura is very positive and confident. This person goes through life believing all things will go well. Beware, of someone who has an overly bright orange aura has it often indicates an egotistical character.

GREEN

A clear green aura is found surrounding loving and affectionate people they instinctively want to create harmony for others. This may make them overly anxious to please and they may be taken advantage of. They have a great love of the outdoors and nature. Watch out for someone with a harsh green aura - they are often stubborn and inflexible to any new ideas.

YELLOW

People with yellow auras tend to be life's thinkers. They would never rush into a decision. You may find them outgoing and very sociable. However, beware of someone with a murky yellow aura and they are probably less than truthful.

BLUE

Blue is the colour that belongs to someone who is idealistic and who has strong beliefs about what is right or wrong. They are often a seeker of spiritual knowledge and could be drawn to practice some form of healing. However, a dark blue aura indicates someone who is conservative in their views and afraid of change

PURPLE

People with purple auras right through from pale lilac to rich purple indicate someone with a strong sense of spiritual purpose. They are humanitarian and care deeply about the fate of others. A clear purple indicates a strong psychic ability.

GOLD

A gold aura is rarely seen. Someone with a gold aura has a tremendous amount of potential and the ability to make a big contribution to the world. They have a deep sense of spirituality and visionary qualities. However, if someone has a dirty gold aura - take care. They have a strong materialistic streak and will stop at nothing to gain power.

BROWN A person with a rich brown aura is very practical and down to earth, and often has a strong love of animals. They enjoy working out of doors and are often very talented at growing plants. A red-brown aura indicates someone who likes to take care of others.

Don't be worried if you find someone with a black aura, it is not necessarily a negative sign. It usually indicates the person who wants to hide away from the world for a time. A black aura, whether it is completely black or with streaks usually indicates someone who is physically exhausted. A dense black aura indicates a needy person who may leech energy from others.

By learning to read and interpret your own and the aura of others, you will find it opens up a new understanding of the people who surround you in your daily life. It could transform your relationships, career and health.

Free Magic Tricks From Scotland -the Flying Aces

This is another superb card trick from Scotland for you to astound your friends and be the center of attention at any party.

The Effect

In this trick you deal four hands of four cards. The four aces are seen to be in one of the hands. You mark the packet with the four aces and ask your friend to choose one of the other packets. When you say the magic words, the aces jump into your friend's packet and his cards jump into yours!

Secret and Preparation

All you need is a pack of cards.

To begin with you deal the four aces in a row on the table. They are face up. Then working from left to right, deal one, face-down card on top of each ace. Do this two more times. You now have four packets of cards on the table. The bottom face-up card of each packet is an ace and there are three face-down cards on top of each ace.

Turn each ace face down and stack the packets on top of each other. You now have one packet of sixteen cards and every fourth card is an ace. Put the packet on the top of the pack and hold the pack face down.

From left to right, deal four cards, one card at a time, in a row on the table. The forth card is of course an ace. After you have dealt the ace, you pick up the next card from the pack and use it to gesture at the ace saying 'That card is an ace'. Your friend will probably challenge you about this. So say 'You don't believe me! I will prove it'. You then quickly place the card in your hand UNDER the pack and then use that same hand to turn over the ace. Your friend's attention will be focused on the ace and he will not notice you returning the card to the bottom of the pack.

After you have shown him the ace, turn it face down and, from left to right, deal one card on top of each packet. Do this a second and a third time. You will now have four packets of cards. Your friend will think that all the aces are in the fourth packet. However, because you placed one card under the pack, only the bottom card is an ace. The other aces are the top three cards of the third packet.

You are now going to force your friend to choose the third packet. So, ask your friend to point to two of the other packets. If he points at packet one and two, then discard them, and you are left with packet three.

If he points to packet three and another packet, then discard the one that was not chosen and ask him to point to one of the packets remaining. If he points to the third packet, then discard the other one. Alternatively, if he points to the other packet, then discard it and keep the third packet. Whichever packet he choose, you have manipulated his choice so you are left with the third packet.

You then turn the bottom card of the third packet face up and leave half of its face showing under the three cards on top of it. Do the same with the ace at the bottom of the fourth packet.

You now swap the bottom cards between the packets. Take the ace and put it face up under the third packet and the other bottom card face up under the fourth packet.

You then say the magic word 'Alakazam' and turn over the cards in the third packet. They are all aces! Then you turn over the cards in the fourth packet. They are different cards.

A miracle!

July 2009 Horoscope

By Tana Hoy

Aries (March 21 - April 20)

Take extra
care this month, especially if there have been issues building up
lately which can develop into a full-blown conflict. Be more careful of
how you react to people at work or in school. You need to take a step
back and look at things from a broader perspective. It is time for
resolution.

Taurus (April 21 - May 21)

You may be
busy with responsibilities at work, in school, with the community, a
sports team, or a club you are part of. Keep up the good work! However,
be sure to make some time for things you like to do. You can stay busy
as long as you are organized. Keep the balance.

Gemini (May 22 - June 21)

There
is some flirtatious energy coming your way and you will enjoy it.
However, be careful or you may end up hurting someone and getting
yourself into trouble! Remember, some things are just fleeting, so
don't get yourself involved in anything you are not sure of.

Cancer (June 22 - July 22)

Pay
a little extra attention to your health this month - not just your
physical health, but your mental, emotional, and financial health as
well! The health of your relationships requires your attention too. You
already know what to you need to do, and you will find pleasure in
keeping them all healthy!

Leo (July 23 - August 21)

It's
about time you push through with your creative ideas and great plans.
You should start turning your action plans into actual actions taken.
Take a look at your To-Do-list and prioritize. You will be amazed at
how much you can actually do.

Virgo (August 22 - September 23)

You
may feel frustrated with big plans not working out, but now is not the
time to rant about it, or take it out on other people. Instead, focus
on solutions and taking proper action. You will find that there are
people around you who are willing to help you handle these tough
situations. You just need to ask for the help!

Libra (September 24 - October 23)

You
may have been very busy attending to the demands and issues of work,
school, or home. Take time to slow down this month. Read a book,
meditate, or take a long, slow walk. Slow down, because you are going
to need a lot of energy for an unexpected surprise towards the end of
the month.

Scorpio (October 24 - November 22)

You
may need to acknowledge something that you have been trying to brush
off. Some things just need to be acknowledged, then they become easier
to define and deal with. Otherwise, you may be seeing things the wrong
way, causing you unnecessary stress.

Sagittarius (November 23 - December 22)

Work-life
balance is very important this month. Too much work will make you
irritable and you will end up with conflicts, which will add to the
stress. Manage your time and be sure to include some physical activity
that will improve your overall health. This will make you more
productive.

Capricorn (December 23 - January 20)

Things
will be going great for you this month. Plans will go smoothly, and you
will find people to be cooperative. Take advantage of this time, and
strengthen your connections with people, both at work, school and in
your personal life. Help out those who are not having as joyful of a
time as you.

Aquarius (January 21 - February 19)

Weigh
all your options before making any decisions. Do not let your emotions
rule. Acknowledge them, but don't let them decide for you. Look at the
facts objectively. Take time to think things over, and make sure to not
make decisions based on your impulses.

Pisces (February 20 - March 20)

You
may be feeling uneasy about how things have been unfolding - or not
unfolding lately. You need to trust that good things are on their way
to you. Things will start falling into place towards the middle of the
month, and at that time, the frustrations you may now be feeling, will
be behind you!
