Preparing Heart And Home For The Peek Of The Lions Gate Shifts…

alionby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
take a deep breath and get ready for the next big stellar event of the year!! The planetary New Year on July 26th has kicked of a serious of influences, that are bringing more and more higher vibrations into the mix of our collective awakening process. We are just about out of the energy field of the Leo New Moon from the 2nd of August, and now we are facing the intense influence of the Lions Gate that is peeking on August 8th.
An event of big importance in our zodiac year, as it brings us ancient teachings from the higher realms of Sirius and the Hathor masters. It is a magical time every year, filled with downloads of vibrant clarity and focused direction. If we want to take full advantage of this wonderful days of divine blessings, we are better of preparing our heart and home to be pure and wide open.

Dear Ones, New Beginnings will be closed from June 1st till September 4th! In this time I will be posting my articles rather sporadically, expecting to pick up the daily service after that period! If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a Facebook group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!!

That means for us, that we can use the opportunity these last days before the Lions Gate are providing for us, and drop the old reflections in our personal mindset to rise in vibration. Endless divine energetic support to go the easy way, let go of what ever we don’t need anymore, move on from a place of pain to a place of light, is in the air every single minute now. Take a little time ans take your chances!! It is easy enough to make a big difference, in your home and in this world!!!
To prepare our mind and space well, we can start with simple acts of cleaning and contemplation, the conscious decisions that things are allowed to move forward for the better now, and blessings for our future. I gave this tips ones before, but it is always good when there are big events ahead, to have a little reminder, so we actually use the tools we have ;-).. Hope you enjoy!!C6 simple steps to open and prepare your energy field:
1.) Count your Blessings
Sounds simple enough!? I am sure you all know the feeling when we are looking back over a work well done, a difficult communication harmoniously experienced, a challenge successfully overcome, and how good such a moment feels. So think back to all the good thinks you have done, sway in them for one more minute, enjoy the self-respect that comes from such an acknowledgement, internally and externally, and allow the moment to nourish you self-confidence. That way your good work turns into even more blessings for you to come in 2016, and you will be stronger for your creations and challenges ahead.

2.) Let go of what no longer serves
Most people on this planet have one or the other ghost in the closet. Some little things we are holding on to. That might be on material level (all the small items you picked up to memorize a special minute in time. Guess what, they are holding you anchored in all this moments in your past, which means you do not have your full capacity to be present!!!). On emotional level, leave the pain behind the door and move on to a place of joy and self-love. Drop the old mindsets, and free yourself of people who do not support your spiritual development and awakening to your higher-self. If you do so, you open the doors for your true soul family to come and meet you for a joyous life that wants to be shared together!! Remember 2016 will is the year where the first higher-self guided soul families and soul tribes are getting in touch all over the planet, and start their co-creations together!!

3.) Clean your Household
The space we are living in, is the space we give our imagination, our dreams and desire to unfold in just exactly that way, that we like them best. If your home is big and you are already tired from the day, than don’t clean it all!! Just make sure your sleeping room is tip top and ready to receive the blessings of a new beginning beyond the Lions Gateway!! When we consciously clean our home, we also think of letting go of the old and unhealthy in our life, we wash out the corners of our stuck mind, and open a door for inspiration and guidance to come to us. Simply giving the dust you sweep out the last thought of conscious goodbye, gives the action a twist that the universe will respond to. You can intensify the effect, by repeating the simple phrase of the prayer to the violet flame during your entire cleaning process.sage4.) Cleanse your house with White Sage
White Sage is widely known as one of the strongest healing, transforming and transcending sacred plants on the planet. That is good news because it means you don’t have to be a professional in order to be effective. To the contrary, the ability, the trait, the power is in the plant itself. No need to be shy, as you cant go wrong even if it is your first time. Sage is deeply rooted in the Native American healing arts, ancestral linage and tradition and can therefore also open a portal to this energy fields. Watch out for flashbacks while working with the plant!!
Don’t think to much about it! Get a sage stick, light it, blow on it and walk in a spiraling movement from the center of every room in your house, to the furthers corners of its extension. Please, don’t forget the dark little corners like closets or storage rooms!!!! They need your attention the most!! Speak out loud or repeat in the mind the prayer below, to the violet flame of transformation (one of the divine rays of angelic light or existence is build of).

Violet Flame blaze, blaze oh blaze,
in through and around every single electron.
Transform me / us / the room / again into dancing light
until everything flows in
the harmony of t
he divine plan 

5.) Spray rose petal water in all rooms:
You can get authentic, pure rose petal water in selected New Age shops and some well equipped homeopathic drugstores. If you don’t get a tincture, you can always look out for rose petal oil to mix it with water. In case that is your choice – just make sure that it is a pure and high quality oil – with no chemicals involved!!
A pure and high vibrating rose petal oil or water, is holding the angelic vibration of the color pink. The color and frequency of unconditional love and divine grace. Qualities you might enjoy watching unfold in your world! Just adapt the same spiral walk as with the sage, and spray, splash or trickle water in all 4 directions of all rooms in your house. You can also keep up praying the violet flame prayer, or you start focusing your mind on the wonderful self-loving, glorious things you want for you life beyond the Lions Gate.THE-BLESSING6.) Bless your home
Everybody on this planet comes from the divine essence, and everybody in the world – has the power to bless. You  might not be used to bless jet and it might feel weird at first to consider yourself as somebody entitled to bless, but it work like riding a bike. That also felt unstable, bumpy and a bit weird at the beginning. With repetition and training of the mind to see yourself as worthy, the effect of your blessings will gain in strength. And last but not least – while you are blessings your home, think of the fact that you are a part of it –  don’t miss out on sending some self-love and blessings to YOU!!

Dear Ones, I hope you are making the very best of this magical Lions Gate energies! If you can, please to up your self-love account again, and reserve personal time in your busy calendar, to spend in meditation and contemplation, to open your heart and mind to the loving guidance of the Lions Gate blessings! May your inner voice be loud and clear, and your ears freshly washed ;-)!
Love and Lions Roar!

Prepare today your Home and Personal Energy Field for the Vibrations of 2016

my

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
the last day of the year is rapidly approaching and it is the perfect moment to sit down and take a minute for the past. A moment to look back into this amazingly powerful year 2015, with all its ups and down and more energetic high frequency events from the heavens above, than we can count with the 10 fingers of our hands. When we look back, it is not in order to invite melancholy or sadness about past events into our life again, but to evaluate how far we have come this last year on a personal as well as on a collective level. The power of the Numerology year 8 has not betrayed us, and forced us to understand personal power, power abuse, lack and abundance, authenticity and fake. All qualities we need to be able to identify, when seeking to awaken into our higher-selves constant true guidance.
And when we are done looking back and gaining strength from acknowledging the achievements we had, it is the right moment to open the windows, and let the wind of change come in and take away the old. No days more powerful over the year, than today and tomorrow, to use the seasonal frequencies and make our inner life as well as our home ready, for a float of New Beginnings and manifestations for the Golden Age of Aquarius on planet earth.

That means to us that we can use the opportunity these last days in the year are providing, and drop the old reflections in our personal mindset and vibration. The divine energetic support to go the easy way, drop what ever we don’t need anymore, move on from a place of pain to a place of light, is in the air every single minute now.

Every New Moon a New Beginning – 7 simple steps to align with the energy field of the shift!

nm hippyby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
the energies of the New Moon are approaching and easy tips came to my mind, how we can actively support this divine  forces with simple effective changes. Changes, the universe accepts like offerings – offerings to let the wind of change come in and take away the old. Not always it is required to quit our job, divorce our partner or start a brand new work life, when the energies of change are knocking on our door. But, universal seasonal frequencies do not care for where we are standing in our lives – they cater to the human collective “ready or not”.
That means, the forces of meta-physic movement within the cosmos lovingly offer to us the opportunities, situations and the spiritual strength, that we need to let go, move on and create change. If the change is conscious or unconscious, if you experience it as easy or as torture, as gain or as loss – is entirely a reflection of your personal mindset and vibration.
The support to go the easy way, drop what ever we don’t need anymore, move on from a place of pain to a place of light, is in the air every single New Moon of your life.
This particular Virgo New Moon also provides us with a partial eclipse, which makes the impact on all related human collective pattern even stronger. When ever you desire to initiate a small shift in your homes vibration, you can use the steps bellow to transform the energy – the source of your inner stability and clarity.

7 simple steps to change the vibration in your home:

1. ) Take a long hot shower 
Sounds simple enough!? I am sure you all know the feeling of coming home from an exhausting day at work, with your body tired and your mind only wanting to rest. If you than take a shower, you can feel refreshed, rejuvenated and fit again. If you now add to this natural result some conscious awareness and affirmations, the effect will intensify strongly. Your personal energy field is part of your home – what you can let go of from inside – is also done for the whole frequency of your safe haven.
So step into the shower, with the intention to internally and externally let go of what ever it is that no longer serves your higher-self and spiritual development. Speak out loud or repeat in the mind the prayer below, to the violet flame of transformation (one of the divine rays of angelic light, or existence is build of). If it is the memory of people who triggered your emotions, a situation you witnessed that hurt you soul or simple lower vibrating human thought pattern – everything can be evolved, transformed and refined by the violet flame of your inner divinity.

Violet Flame blaze, blaze oh blaze,
in through and around every single electron.
Transform me / us / the room / again into dancing light
until everything flows in
the harmony of t
he divine plan 

2. ) Clean your Household
The space we are living in, is the space we give our imagination, our dreams and desire to unfold in just exactly that way, that we like them best. If your home is big and you are already tired from the day, than don’t clean it all!! Just make sure your sleeping room is tip top and ready to receive the blessings of a new beginning!!
When we consciously clean our home, we think of letting go of the old and unhealthy in our life. We wash out the corners of our stuck mind, and open a door for inspiration and guidance to come to us. Simply giving the dust you sweep out the last thought of conscious goodbye, gives the action a twist that the universe will respond to. You can intensify the effect, by repeating the simple phrase of the prayer to the violet flame during your entire cleaning process.

3. ) Cleanse your house with White Sage
White Sage is widely known as one of the strongest healing, transforming and transcending sacred plants on the planet. That is good news because it means you don’t have to be a professional in order to be effective. To the contrary, the ability, the trait, the power is in the plant itself. No need to be shy, as you cant go wrong even if it is your first time. Sage is deeply rooted in the Native American healing arts, ancestral linage and tradition and can therefore also open a portal to this energetic field.
Don’t think to much about it! Get a sage stick, light it, blow on it and walk in a spiraling movement from the center of every room in your house, to the furthers corners of its extension. !!!!Please, don’t forget the dark little corners!!!! When you use common sense than it is clear, that especially places like overfilled storage-rooms, toilets (just think for a second what you do in there) and unused guestrooms – need even more of your attention!! And, also here – repeating the simple phrase of the prayer to the violet flame, makes the effect much stronger.

4. ) Spray rose petal water in all rooms:
You can get authentic, pure rose petal water in selected New Age shops and some well equipped homeopathic drugstores. If you don’t get a made up tincture, you can always look out for rose petal oil to mix it with water. In case that is you choice – just make sure that it is a pure and high quality oil – no chemicals involved!!
A pure and high vibrating rose petal oil or water, is holding the angelic vibration of the color pink. The color also of the rose quartz crystal, which is the frequency of unconditional love and divine grace. Qualities you might enjoy watching unfold in your world!
To apply to mix, just adapt the same spiral walk as with the sage and spray, splash or trickle water in all 4 directions of the room. As before – to repeat the prayer to the violet flame at the same time, tops up the strength of your work!

5. ) Change the bed sheets
It is a task easy enough done, simple feels good and, that way it is more likely for the “other world” to reach you in lucid dreams. When you are swaying in the smell and feeling of a set of fresh bed sheets, you automatically  let go more profoundly of your daily sorrows. As soon as you sink deep enough, a door opens to your inner guidance. What comes next, is up to spirit!
moon-96906. ) Move the furniture
You don’t have to change the position of your complete interior to create the feeling of change, already small adjustments of little items can make a big difference. You could move the coffee table to a different place, change the position of the TV stool, even if you just bring some pillows from the guestroom to the livingroom – the livingroom to your room and so on, it can change the feeling of how we perceive our space. Another easy way to feel brand new, is to change the color scheme of pillows, curtains and carpets in your rooms.

7. ) Bless your home
Everybody on this planet comes from the same source – the divine essence, and everybody in the world – has the power to bless. You  might not be used to bless jet and it might feel weird at first to consider yourself as somebody entitled to bless, but it work like riding a bike. That also felt unstable, bumpy and a bit weird at the beginning. With repetition and training of the mind to see yourself as worthy, the effect of your blessings will gain in strength. And last but not least – while you are blessings your home, think of the fact that you are a part of it –  don’t miss out on sending some self-love and blessing to YOU!!

I hope that my words provide you with inspiration, guidance and some good fun! Wish you “inner world changing” New Beginnings at every New Moon to come!!!

10 Ways Introverts Interact Differently With The World

INTROVERT
 Hi Friends,
I love this article! Together with being an Empath, an Indigo Child and a Visionary – I just discovered another field of psychological definition, my respond to life fits in. Crossing all of this informations brings me a great inside about the past, as well as how to create the next step of my story. Hope it can do the same for you!
Enjoy the article! Blessings and Joy!
Edith

Introverts and extraverts may seem the same on the surface, but if you look at the way they respond to life’s everyday occurrences, differences begin to emerge.
Last month, for example, Science of Us writer Melissa Dahl reported on findings from psychologist Brian Little’s latest book on personality science, Me, Myself, and Us: The Science of Personality and the Art of Well-Being, which showed that introverts are better off avoiding caffeine before a big meeting or important event.
Little cites the theory of extraversion by Hans Eysenck and research by William Revelle of Northwestern University, explaining that introverts and extraverts naturally differ when it comes to their alertness and responsiveness to a given environment. A substance or scene that overstimulates the central nervous system of an introvert (which doesn’t take much) might cause him or her to feel overwhelmed and exhausted, rather than excited and engaged.

In her 2012 TED Talk titled “The Power of Introverts,” author Susan Cain reiterated this point in her definition of introversion, explaining that the trait is “different from being shy.”
“Shyness is about fear of social judgment,” Cain said. “Introversion is more about how do you respond to stimulation, including social stimulation. So extraverts really crave large amounts of stimulation, whereas introverts feel at their most alive and their most switched on and their most capable when they are in quieter, more low-key environments.”
Now it goes without saying that most of our societal constructs cater to the former — from open office spaces to loud bars to the structure of our educational system — despite the fact that anywhere from one-third to half of the population has an introverted temperament.

While a person’s introverted or extraverted tendencies fall within a spectrum — there is no such thing as a pure introvert or pure extravert, according to famous Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung — an introvert is most obvious and vulnerable when he or she is in an overstimulating environment.

Coffee jitters aside, here are 10 ways introverts physically interact with the world around them differently than extraverts.

They withdraw in crowds.

alone in crowd

“We hit the 20th century and we entered a new culture that historians call the culture of personality,” said Cain in her TED Talk. “We had evolved from an agricultural economy to a world of big business, and so suddenly people are moving from small towns to the cities, and instead of working alongside people they’ve known all their lives, now they are having to prove themselves in a crowd of strangers.”
The resulting crowd, which is often loud, noisy and congested, easily overstimulates introverts and drains them of their physical energy. They end up feeling more physically isolated than supported by their surroundings, and would rather be anywhere but that sea of people.

Small talk stresses them out, while deeper conversations make them feel alive.

While most extraverts are energized by such interactions, introverts often feel intimidated, bored or exhausted by them. It’s not uncommon in large conversations for introverts to take on the role of the quiet listener and then take time alone once it’s complete. As Sophia Dembling, the author of The Introvert’s Way: Living A Quiet Life In A Noisy World, explains in her book, it ultimately comes down to how a person receives (or doesn’t receive) energy from his or her surroundings. Instead, introverts prefer deeper conversations, oftentimes about philosophical ideas.

They succeed on stage — just not in the chit-chat afterwards.

speech

“At least half of people who speak for a living are introverted in nature,” according to Jennifer B. Kahnweiler, Ph.D, a certified speaking professional, executive coach and author of Quiet Influence: The Introvert’s Guide to Making a Difference. They simply play to their strengths, and prepare extensively. In fact, some of the most successful performers are introverts. Remaining on a stage, removed from a massive audience, proves far easier than the small talk-filled conversations that follow.

They get distracted easily, but rarely feel bored.

If you’re looking to destroy an introverted person’s attention span, just put them in a situation where they feel overstimulated. Due to increased sensitivity to their surroundings, introverts struggle with feeling distracted and sometimes overwhelmed in large crowds and open office spaces.
However, when they are in peace and quiet, they have no issue tending to a favorite hobby or delving into a new book for hours. Having that time to take care of their inner selves helps them recharge while enjoying an activity they already enjoy.

They are naturally drawn to more creative, detail-oriented and solitary careers.

woman writing

Introverts naturally prefer spending time alone or in a small group, delving deeply into one task at a time and taking their time when it comes to making decisions and solving problems. Therefore, they fare better in work environments that allow them to do all of these things. Certain professions — including writers, in-the-field natural scientists and behind-the-scenes tech workers — can give introverts the intellectual stimulation they crave without the distracting environment they dislike.

When surrounded by people, they locate themselves close to an exit.

Introverts not only feel physically uncomfortable in crowded places, but also do their best to mediate that discomfort by hanging as close to the periphery as possible. Whether it be by an exit, at the back of a concert hall, or an aisle row on an airplane, they avoid being surrounded by people on all sides, according to Dembling.

“We’re likely to sit in places where we can get away when we’re ready to — easily,” Dembling previously told HuffPost.

They think before they speak.

thinking

This habit of introverts is often what earns them their reputations as listeners. It is second nature to them to take their time before opening their mouths, reflecting internally, instead of thinking out loud (which is more common among extraverts). They may seem more quiet and shy because of this behavior, but it just means that when they do speak, the words they share have that much more thought — and sometimes power — behind them.

They don’t take on the mood of their environment like extraverts do.

A 2013 study published in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience found that extraverts and introverts process experiences through the brain’s “reward” centers quite differently. While extraverts often sense a feel-good rush of dopamine related to their surroundings, introverts tend to not experience such a shift. In fact, people who are naturally introverted do not process rewards from external factors as strongly as extraverts do.

They physically can’t stand talking on the phone.

texting

Most introverts screen their phone calls — even from their friends — for several reasons. The intrusive ringing forces them to abandon focus on a current project or thought and reassign it to something unexpected. Plus, most phone conversations require a certain level of small talk that introverts avoid. Instead, introverts may let calls go to voicemail so they can return them when they have the proper energy and attention to dedicate to the conversation.

They literally shut down when it’s time to be alone.

“Solitude matters, and for some people, it is the air that they breathe.” – Susan Cain
Every introvert has a limit when it comes to stimulation. HuffPost blogger Kate Bartolotta explains it well when she writes, “Think of each of us as having a cup of energy available. For introverts, most social interactions take a little out of that cup instead of filling it the way it does for extroverts. Most of us like it. We’re happy to give, and love to see you. When the cup is empty though, we need some time to refuel.”

The Feel-Good Switch: The Radical Future of Emotion

the-feelgood-switch-the-radical-future-of-emotion_1THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE! How fucked up is the control elite in this moment of time!!??
Now we are cloning human emotion into computer programs to manipulate even more! Craziest sentence of the article – “This is moving us to a place where we can produce desired emotions nearly on command. Does anybody agree that we don’t need more immediate impulse and desire satisfaction?? Careful human beings – time for a radical shift towards a healthy humanity!!!
How do you feel??
Blessings Edith

For most of the last century, the study of emotions was not considered serious science. The problem was subjectivity. Science is objective, rigorously objective. Emotions, though, are internal states, so the only way to study them is through subjective inference (essentially asking people to report how they feel). But —because people lie, because we often misinterpret our emotions and because comparisons between subjects, that is the depth of my anger versus your anger, is impossible to measure—there’s no objective data to be found.

Thus, until recently, the topic was taboo
Change came in the late 1990s, when neuroscientist Jaak Panksepp (now at Washington State ) discovered the precise neuron-to-neuron trail of the seven primary emotions in all mammals—meaning, in one fell swoop, he answered the longstanding question of do animals have feelings (yes) and turned effective (meaning the study of emotions) neuroscience into a real field.

images (2)That field has since blown up. This explosion is following a couple of important trajectories. First, there’s a technological revolution that is allowing machines to read and interpret human emotion like never before.

A couple months back, for example, I wrote about Ellie—the world’s first AI-psychologist. Developed for DARPA by researchers at USC—in an attempt to detect depression and decrease the catastrophic rate of soldier suicide—Ellie uses a combination of microphones, video cameras and a modified X-Box Kinect movement sensor to read 60 different physical signals a second (everything from vocal tone to micro-facial expressions to postural changes) and then uses these signals to decode emotion.
Along similar lines, Raffi Khatchadourian wrote a great piece for the New Yorker about Affectiva, an affective computing company that is making incredible progress in this same area. In many cases, like judging the nuanced meaning behind a smile, their algorithms can now read human emotion better than humans can.
These developments have researchers talking about called Emotional Economy, the next huge wave in techno-economic development and the follow up to today’s Information Economy.

download (1)What is the Emotion Economy? Well, for starters, think about the forthcoming Internet of Things (IoT)—a giant mesh network connecting all of our devices. Now think about what happens if this network understands emotions.
Say you’re driving home from work. You’re tired because it’s been a long day. You’re also anxious because you have a ton of stuff due by the following morning. Well, as both your car and your phone will soon be able to read and interpret emotional and biological signals, as you’re driving home, these devices will detect your mood and fire up the coffee pot. Thus, by the time you’re back home, there’s a cup of magic black liquid waiting for you.
And this is a pretty tame example. For something a little more disruptive, imagine you’re on a Skype call with a potential new business partner. Of course, as part of the soon-to-be standard Skype package, your computer comes with its own affective detectors. So when your prospective business partner starts becoming really anxious during a discussion of shared responsibilities, you can get to the root of these anxieties before they become a bigger problem.
Beyond this technological revolution (which is helping us read and understand emotion), there’s a concurrent pharmacological revolution that’s moving us to a place where we can produce desired emotions nearly on command.

download (2)In this arena, consider the work of a team of researchers at the University of California, Berkeley and UC San Francisco who—just last week— discovered that giving people a drug that increases the reward/motivation chemical dopamine in their brain also increases their compassion.

In this study, participants were given either a placebo or the Parkinson’s drug tolcapone—which prolongs the effects of dopamine in the pre-frontal cortex and essentially does the same sort of the same thing Prozac does (though, instead of prolonging the effects of serotonin in the brain, it amplifies dopamine). Next, these participants played a money distribution game—dividing a fixed sum between known players and anonymous participants (which is a good way to measure our compassion towards anonymous strangers).
The results were conclusive: participants with more dopamine floating around their system were more prone towards pro-social behaviors—that is, they were more sensitive to fairness and less tolerant of social inequality (that is, the perceived economic gap between an anonymous stranger and a known player).
While this is an exciting breakthrough in its own right, it comes on the heals of a decade of similar discoveries. We now have an oxytocin-stimulating nasal spray, for another example, that impacts trust levels (while there mitigating factors, in simple terms the more oxytocin in our system, the more we trust the people around us).

dopamineNow, for certain, there’s ton of stuff we still don’t know. Research into SSRI’s definitely proves that there’s more to this puzzle than a single neuro-chemical producing a single emotion (otherwise we would have ‘cured’ depression by now), but there’s no way around the fact that if  you combine these technological and pharmacological breakthroughs, we find two decades of stunning progress. In this short timespan, we’ve gone from knowing next to nothing about emotions to the point where we can read, interpret and—at least sometimes—produce these states nearly at will. Moreover, these discoveries are moving out of the lab and into the real world.

And the real world will never be the same.
The changes that are coming will be vast, but I want to point out two key areas of development.
First, let’s think about how many once “normal” conditions are now labeled pathologies (shyness has become ‘social phobia,’ sadness has become depression). Because of these new categories, according to new research by the National Institute of Mental Health, one quarter of Americans will surfer some form of mental illness. Already, these Americans are being prescribed medicines by the boatload. Now, sure, we could argue back and forth about the medical versus the diagnostic validity of these conditions, but that’s besides the point. The real point is we now live in a culture where, if you don’t like how you feel, rather than being forced to make changes to your life, we are reaching for pills to pop.

imagesResearch into things like dopamine as a compassion trigger is going to produce more pills to pop. And these pills will become more precise (meaning they’ll be far more effective than, say, today’s SSRI’s) and more readily available. What this adds up to is a profound shift in our collective mood—let’s just say that the baseline average mood will shift a few degrees up the happiness side of the curve. Sure, a happier world seems like a better world, but the real point is this is the first time in history such a shift will be possible and—like everything else—there will clearly be some unintentional consequences.
And that’s only half of this picture.  The other half starts with the idea that emotions are big levers—they exist to shape and steer behavior. But, because these levers are fairly easy to pull (think about how easy it is for your parents to push your buttons), humans evolved the ability to conceal their emotional states.  Yet, thanks to affective computing, the future that’s coming is a very exposed place. Your feelings—those inner experiences that have remained firmly private for all of human history—are going public. Meaning, the Emotional Economy brings with it a whole new level of radical transparency.
Taken together, these technological and pharmacological developments are producing the largest change in human emotional processing to come along in tens of thousands of years. Not only will nothing ever be the same—nothing ever will feel the same.

The 9 Veils Placed On Every Human Soul

telepathy.jpeg.pagespeed.ce.5PHqC3p5ENby A. True Ott, PhD
Nearly a decade ago, a dear friend and colleague of mine named Don Harkins authored a wonderfully thought-provoking piece entitled “Slavery and the Eight Veils”. Prior to Harkins’ untimely death, we discussed this “Eight-veils theory” for literally hours together – and in the end, Don asked me to write a piece about this for his newspaper, “The Idaho Observer.”  He did this, because I had shared much of my research with Don, and we together came to the conclusion that in reality, there were actually NINE veils placed on the human soul (i.e. intelligence), and that spiritual progression and thus a full knowledge of TRUTH would require the piercing of these Nine Veils.
I joked with Don that this topic would take an entire edition of The Idaho Observer, and then it would only scratch the surface.  That was one of Don’s editorial talents – taking a complex story and compressing it to a more readable format.   In memory of Don Harkins, here is the writing we discussed, in as compressed a format as possible.

WHY NINE VEILS INSTEAD OF EIGHT
Any dedicated seeker of truth eventually stumbles upon the incredible symmetry and structure of mathematics, which is especially true in fractal geometry involving the integers 1-9.  For a most basic example, just take a look at these nine equations:

(1 x 8) + 1= 9
(12 x 8) + 2 = 98
(123 x 8) + 3 = 987
(1234 x 8) + 4 = 9876
(12345 x 8) + 5 = 98765
(123456 x 8) + 6 = 987654
(1234567 x 8) + 7 = 9876543
(12345678 x 8) + 8 = 98765432
(123456789 x 8) + 9 = 987654321
download (4)Amazing, isn’t it?  I find it very interesting, furthermore, that all of the great philosophers in history such as Archimedes, Copernicus, Socrates, and DaVinci all were mathematicians first and foremost.   I submit that everything from biblical prophecy to DNA strands are built and based on quite simple mathematical formulas and patterns – but I am getting ahead of the story, for understanding the role of mathematics is in itself one of the nine hidden veils.
Consider also the so-called “mystery schools” of antiquity.  In shadowy temples in Sumer and Babylon – the Kabbalah showed the way to the ultimate “Holy of Holies” – the re-veil-a-tions (revelation, i.e. the parting of the veils) of life, the creation, of God and when embraced in honor and truth, the very Origins of Man.  This involved systematically piercing and embracing 9 levels of understanding or “Truth Plateaus” before finally entering “Nirvana” (or the ultimate unity with God) as depicted in modern “tracing boards”.

download (5)Like a giant Sudoku Puzzle board, the human experience we call life truly revolves around the numbers 1 – 9 in so many remarkable ways.  Everything has a place in the system, and everything fits neatly and precisely in the eternal grid of time and space.  This then, is but one definition of Truth – hidden, arcane knowledge that fits completely in the mathematical grid called logic.  Yeshua (aka Jesus of Nazareth) declared this to His disciples: “Ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall set you free.”

WHY CAN’T PEOPLE SEE THE TRUTH?
This question is best answered by Don Harkins’ wise words written in 2001:

“Over the last several years I have evolved and discarded several theories in an attempt to explain why it is that most people cannot see truth — even when it smacks them in the face. Those of us who can see “the conspiracy” have participated in countless conversations amongst ourselves that address the frustration of most peoples´ inability to comprehend the extremely well-documented arguments which we use to describe the process of our collective enslavement and exploitation. The most common explanation to be arrived at is that most people just “don´t want to see” what is really going on.
Extremely evil men and women who make up the world´s power-elite have cleverly cultivated a virtual pasture so grass green that few people seldom, if ever, bother to look up from where they are grazing long enough to notice the brightly colored tags stapled to their ears.
The same people who cannot see their enslavement for the pasture grass have a tendency to view as insane “conspiracy theorists” those of us who can see the past the farm and into the parlor of his feudal lordship´s castle. Finally, I understand why.

It´s not that those who don´t see that their freedom is vanishing under the leadership of the power-elite “don´t want to see it” — they simply can´t see what is happening to them because of the unpierced veils that block their view.

All human endeavors are a filtration process. Sports are one of the best examples. We play specific sports until we get kicked off the playground. The pro athletes we pay big bucks to watch just never got kicked off the playground. Where millions of kids play little league each spring, they are filtered out until there are about 50 guys who go to the World Series in October.

Behind the first veil: There are over 7 billion people on the planet. Most of them live and die without having seriously contemplated anything other than what it takes to keep their lives together. Ninety percent of all humanity will live and die without having pierced the first veil.”

Indeed it can be said that less than 1% of the world’s 7 billion humans ever pierce all nine veils, and it would appear that even this small minority is ever-shrinking.  In order to keep the “virtual pasture” green, the global elite also successfully bribe many who have pierced multiple veils, in order to misdirect others who may be approaching truth in many areas.  I call this simply intellectual prostitution – selling the birthright of Universal Truth for a worthless mess of pottage.  The gilded glitz of wealth, fame and social elevation have seduced many a gifted intellectual.

With full credit given to Don Harkins, here now are the newly updated “Nine Veils”.

The first veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the first veil and find the world of politics. We will vote, become active and develop an opinion. Our opinions will be shaped by the physical world around us; we will have been “conditioned” from our days in public education to accept that government officials, network media personalities and other “experts” are the primary voices of authority. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the third veil.

The second veil: Ten percent of us will also pierce the second veil to explore the world of history, the relationship between man and government and the meaning of self-government through constitutional and common law. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the third veil.

The third veil: Ten percent of those who pierce the second veil, will eventually pierce the third veil to conclusively find that the resources of the world, including people, are controlled by extremely wealthy and powerful families whose incorporated old world assets have, with modern extortion strategies, become the foundation upon which the entire world´s economy is currently indebted. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the fourth veil.

download (6)The fourth veil: Ten percent will then pierce the fourth veil to discover the Illuminati,Freemasonry, and the other secret societies. These societies use symbols and perform ceremonies that perpetuate the generational transfers of arcane knowledge that is used to keep the ordinary people in political, economic and spiritual bondage to the oldest bloodlines on earth. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the fifth veil.

The fifth veil: Ten percent will progress to pierce the fifth veil to learn that the secret societies are so far advanced technologically that time travel and interstellar communications have no boundaries and controlling the very thoughts and even the very actions of people is what their members do as offhandedly as we tell our children when they must go to bed.  As in the days of Noah, this technology is even creating synthetic life forms, as man seeks to displace God.  Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the sixth veil.

The sixth veil: Ten percent will progress to pierce the sixth veil where we learn the dragons and lizards and aliens we thought were the fictional monsters of childhood literature are real indeed and are in reality the actual controlling forces behind the secret societies uncovered in the fourth veil. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without piercing the seventh veil.

The seventh veil: Ten Percent will progress to pierce the 7th veil where the incredible world of ractal geometry and the universal law of numbers will be fully understood and embraced.  The creative force of the entire universe will be shown to be linked to numerical code formulas and sequences, and all “mysteries” including the very fabric of time, space, parallel universes, and access therein is unlocked.  Those whose intellects allow them to pierce the seventh veil often succumb to the lure and promise of massive wealth offered by the ruling elite, and thus over ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without piercing the eighth veil.

images (7)The eighth veil: Piercing the eighth veil reveals God and the pure energy known as LOVE that is the pure life force in all living things – which are one and the same.  Deep-seated Humility is needed in order to ever pierce this veil.

The ninth veil: Piercing the ninth veil means perfecting the pure energy known as love and thereby becoming truly one with God and His/Her formulations.  By perfecting this pure energy, one then fully embraces charity and therein gains full understanding of the universal plan of sacrifice, death, and redemption; life itself then becomes complete and one truly comes full circle and looks at the world through the eyes of an innocent child, yet with the deepest wisdom born of pure LOVE from the eighth veil.

Consider this: If this theory is correct, there are only about 60,000 people on the planet who have successfully pierced the sixth veil. The irony here is too incredible: Those who are stuck behind veils one through five have little choice but to view the people who have pierced the veils beyond them as dangerously insane. With each veil pierced, exponentially shrinking numbers of increasingly enlightened people are deemed insane by exponentially increasing masses of decreasingly enlightened people.

Adding to the irony, the harder a “sixth or better veiler” tries to explain what he is able to see to those who can’t, the more insane he appears to them.  This truth is self-evident.  Moreover, institutions such as the venerable “Southern Poverty Law Center” are formed and financed by the ruling elite to effectively label many such awakened individuals “hate-mongers” and “terrorists”.

download (1)OUR ENEMY, THE STATE
Behind the first two veils we find the great majority of people on the planet. They are tools of the state: Second veilers are the gullible voters whose ignorance justify the actions of politicians who send untold millions of first veilers off to die in foreign lands as cannon fodder — their combined stations in life are simply to believe that the self-serving machinations of the power-elite are matters of national security and are worth dying for.
Third, fourth, fifth and sixth veilers are of increasing liability to the state because of their decreasing ability to be used as tools to consolidate power and wealth of the many into the hands of the power-elite few. It is common also, for these people to sacrifice more of their relationships with friends and family, their professional careers and personal freedom with each veil they pierce.
Albert Jay Nock (1870-1945), author of “Our Enemy, The State” (1935), explained what happens to those who find and embrace the final two veils: “What was the best that the state could find to do with an actual Socrates and an actual Jesus when it had them? Merely to poison one and crucify the other, for no reason but that they were too intolerably embarrassing to be allowed to live any longer.”
Conclusions
As Don Harkins has written: “And so now we know that it´s not that our countrymen are so committed to their lives that, “they don´t want to see” the mechanisms of their enslavement and exploitation. They simply “can´t see” it as surely as I cannot see what´s on the other side of a closed curtain.”
The purpose of this essay is threefold:
1. To help the handful of people in the latter veils to understand why the masses have little choice but to interpret their clarity as insanity;
2. To help people behind the first two veils understand that living, breathing and thinking are just the beginning and;
3. Show people that the greatest adventure of our life is behind the next veil because that is just one less veil between ourselves and God A.K.A. ‘The Highest Vibration”

Secrets In Plain Sight – Macrocosmic Harmony

The best temples serve as bridges between human scale and the macrocosm. When Beverly Spicer sent me the following image, something clicked and I understood the human body, the Sphinx and the Pyramids in a new way. I’m not sure which book this black-and-white geometric analysis of Pharaoh Rameses II was scanned from—it appears to be mirrored all over the Internet.

PharaohTriangle-555

The nemes headcloth has distinctive, straight-edged folds, which imply an intersection point above the head. Nested equilateral triangles locate the pharaoh’s third eye appropriately as an all-seeing-eye in the center of the triangle (like the eye of providence on the dollar bill).

That reminds me of an image I made recently. Here is essentially what I wrote about it on Facebook:

Beauty is experienced in the world, love in the body, and truth in the mind. The eye of horus in the center symbolizes the view of any observer. The transcendentals are ontologically one and thus they are convertible: e.g., where there is truth, there is beauty and love also. The transcendentals are irreducible qualities of awareness. The circle represents the seeming boundary between your interior sensations, thoughts, and perceptions and your exterior body, mind, and world.

Transcendentalsv3-555

Just as the transcendental qualities of awareness (love, beauty, truth) are ontologically one, so too are the trinity of data types you experience. How far from your awareness are your sensations, perceptions or thoughts? Examine your experience and you will see that there is no distance.

Do the thoughts running through your mind take place in a fundamentally different place than the sensations of your body or your perceptions of the world? They are all convertible because all this data is experienced by awareness and yet we have no trouble identifying which channel the information flows through. There is a fundamental and irreducible trinity to awareness.

I now see this ontological trinity as the fountainhead of relationships such as Isis/Horus/Osiris, Mary/Jesus/Holy-Spirit, and even Neutron/Proton/Electron.

Following a hunch I wanted to see if the Sphinx’s nemes followed the same pattern. I discovered that the pattern is similar but is also subtly different. The Sphinx’s nemes doesn’t imply nested triangles but the uraeus symbolizing the pharaoh’s pineal gland is located in the center of the vesica piscis as indicated by the crossed red lines. Incidentally, I described how to draw this image step-by-step in the latest installment of my Photoshop User Magazine column, Beyond Photoshop.

SphinxGeometry555-detail

Zooming out, the G2 pyramid also appears to fit the pattern.

SphinxGeometry555

It clicked for me when I realized that the geometric template for the Sphinx is the same as the geometric template for the Great Pyramid that I published in my book Quantification. The edge of the inscribed equilateral triangle measures 555.5 feet in the Great Pyramid.

GPGeometry555

In this way the House of the Temple (it was never a tomb) is a macrocosm of the Body carved on the Sphinx. Zooming out once again, the Engraved Hourglass Nebula is a macrocosm of that House. As above, so below.

Body-House-Cosmos-555

The above image wonderfully illustrates Mircea Eliade’s homology, Body—House—Cosmos, from his book “The Sacred and the Profane” (1959).

A big synchronicity for me is that I learned about this three-level holographic homology not from reading Eliade but from reading Beverly Spicer’s excellent book and PhD thesis from the School of Architecture at the University of Texas called, “The Ka’bah: Rhythms of Culture, Faith and Physiology,” which she was kind enough to send me. Remember Beverly was the person who sent me the black-and-white Rameses II image? That whole sequence of events was quite illuminating!

Speaking of illumination, did you know that the human eye is most sensitive to a wavelength of 555 nanometers, which forms the center point of our visual perception? At other frequencies, more radiant intensity is required to achieve the same luminous intensity.

See how the colors are strongest in the middle of the color ramp and fade away as they approach the infrared and ultraviolet ends of the spectrum? 555 nm marks the midpoint.

555 Nanometers

The peak luminous intensity of sunlight also has a wavelength of 555 nanometers. This should be no surprise because our eyes evolved, or perhaps were designed to view the light of our particular Sun. The beauty of repeating 5’s harmonizing our visual perception, 5 symbolizing life, is not lost on me.

After reading a stimulating article Joe Dubs linked on Facebook entitled, “The Pythagorean Relationship Between Pi, e, and Phi” by Peter Felicetti, I realized I already knew the content, but I hadn’t considered the following geometry algebraically before. One can arrange Phi, Pi and e as an almost perfect Pythagorean triangle, but there is a tiny gap that I labeled “The Mystery” at the end of my article on Graham Hancock’s site.

This mystery is drawn to scale

When I saw it algebraically, a few more puzzle pieces fit together and it is no longer a mystery to me but a harmonious work of rational design from a very high level.

Tech note: I realize that some of my detailed graphics might be hard to see. I recommend pressing Command+ on the Mac or Ctrl+ on Windows several times to enlarge the content displayed in your browser. Use Command/Ctrl- to make it smaller later on.

The Quadrivium

The same gap that we hear between twelve just perfect fifths and seven octaves (known as the Cycle of Fifths or the Pythagorean comma), the relationship of transcendental constants arranged in a Pythagorean triangle, and the orbital mechanics of our planet are all related because we are living in a mathematical construct. This was known long ago.

“All is number.” -Pythagoras

The above image expresses the quadrivium: number, geometry, music, and astronomy. In other words, number in itself, number in space, number in time, and number in spacetime.

I knew the Solar Year also factors in the Earth’s equatorial circumference—the following equation was published by John Michell and Robin Heath in The Lost Science of Measuring the Earth. I made this illustration commemorating this important relationship, one that essentially defines the foot.

EarthEquator-555

Speaking of Michell and Heath, they were the authors who deciphered the 5:12:13 triangle and its connection with the lunar cycle. When I was researching extending the Pythagorean theorem into three dimensions, I came across a diagram connecting the 5:12:13 and 3:4:5 triangles. That, and studying Gary Osborn’s work, inspired me to put together this image showing how dynamics related to the Earth, Moon and Sun emerge from something as fundamental to geometry as the first two Pythagorean triples.

Number in space and spacetime

Earth’s orbital circumference has certain clear resonances with our measurement systems.

Earth'sOrbitalCircumferencev2555

Bringing together what I wrote about in Cubits, in my book Taking Measure: Explorations in Number, Architecture and Consciousness, and from my recent experience participating in Graham Hancock’s forums when I was author of the month, these pieces now fit together with greater clarity.

Circumferences

Michael Kuser wrote something on my wall that inspired the following image. The first part shows the combined diagonals of the cubes bounding Earth and Moon compared to their average distance from the Sun are proportioned as the foot is to the mile (99.3%).
Lawrence Edlund discovered that the average distance of the Earth to the Sun compared to the distance light travels in one revolution of the Earth around the Sun are proportioned as the inch is to the mile (99.9%).
I put two and two together and graphically show how our units of measure resonate with our local macrocosm.

Earth-Moon-Cubes-555

In “Rotations” you see more proof that our system is a product of base-10 design. The Moon’s orbital period with respect to the fixed stars is 27.3 Earth days. Earth actually rotates 366.3 times per year relative to the stars because the orbital motion of the Earth around the Sun causes roughly one additional rotation of the planet on its own axis. Here is what Knight and Butler had to say about this phenomenon in Before the Pyramids (p240), where they describe how the megalithic system is based on the division of a circle into 366 units:

“In a solar year the Sun rises 365 times but, during the same time, a star will have risen 366 times. It sounds odd but it’s true. Each day according to the rising of a star (a sidereal day), is 23 hours 56 minutes 4 seconds in length, whereas a mean solar day is 24 hours in length. That leaves a discrepancy of 236 seconds, which over the course of a year amounts to another 24 hours. It is part of the clockwork mechanism of our solar system that there are different sorts of years, dependent on what one is observing. Our megalithic and pre-megalithic ancestors in Britain focused on the number of times a star rose in a year, and the result was 366 times [366.3 with one more digit of accuracy].”

Rotations

Tonight I realized that the product of these rotations, 27.3 x 366.3 = 9999.99. What are the chances? I can’t begin to calculate the astronomical odds against such a numeric symmetry if our planet and its natural satellite were formed by random processes. Note that this product is independent of units and calculated solely on number of Earth rotations relative to our Moon and Sun.

Peter Plichta’s book God’s Secret Formula: Deciphering the Riddle of the Universe and the Prime Number Code taught me that 1/27.3 ≈ 0.03663 and 1/366.3 ≈ 0.00273, which you can easily verify with a calculator.

The ratio of the polar diameter of the Earth to the polar diameter of the Moon is 3.663 and vice-versa, the reciprocal ratio is 0.273 with more than 99.9% accuracy. This means the Earth and Moon system’s rotations and sizes are related in a reciprocal mathematical relationship.

Of course this is another example of what I have called “The Mystery of 273,” in this page out of Quantification.

The Mystery of 273 (update)

Is what we call “conscious thought” incredibly rare in the grand scheme of things, relegated as it is to 2-3mm of neocortex on the surface of our brains?
We and all other organisms on this planet live in a thin biospherical shell 2-3 miles thick. The Earth orbits the Sun in the sweet spot where oceans are kept liquid and the planet retains a transparent atmosphere so perfect for astronomy and our survival. A planetary magnetic field and ozone layer shields us from the charged particles continually pouring out of the Sun, along with many variables conductive to life being fortuitously fine-tuned.

Our system orbits the center of the Milky Way galaxy in another sweet spot, a circular band where products of stellar fusion such as elements heavier than helium are plentiful enough, but star formation isn’t still so active that we are bombarded out of existence. In this light, consciousness appears to be a gossamer membrane, a rare and exquisite miracle in all the cold vastness of space. This membrane/shell structure is another Body—House—Cosmos homology if you think about it.

Membranesv2-555

The following comparison highlights another possibility. The neuronal structures within our brains, roads (which evolved organically around Paris rather than through city planning as in much of North America), and the large-scale structure of the universe (simulated on the Max Planck supercomputer) all exhibit the same specific branching, filamentous pattern. Come to think of it, so too do mushroom mycelial mats, and maps of the entire Internet. What these disparate phenomena have in common is that they are all information processing networks.

Information

If we view Paris from the level of cars, then roads don’t seem to be self-aware. If we view the large-scale structure of the universe from the vantage point of supercomputer simulations computed on Earth, it doesn’t seem self-aware. If we were able to view a neural structure from the point of view of electrons it probably wouldn’t seem self aware to them either, just a kind of electrical network.

However, when we use our own neural structure to introspect, then awareness is self-evident. It’s really a question of which way you are looking. If the universe looked inward, then it presumably would be self-evident that it is self-aware, including all its in-formation including suns, planets, cities, roads, people, neurons, electrons, etc.

The amazing thing is we experience this same self-awareness at our level. We are a microcosm of larger wholes and have microcosms within. Perhaps cells are also self-aware, coordinating the activities at their tiny scale. The organism of which they are a part wouldn’t seem to be self-aware to them at all. Talk about all that would seem like mere philosophy.

Post-Metaphysicsv2-555

This is yet another example of the Body—House—Cosmos homology. The human built environment accessed by roads, our “House,” is a macrocosm of the neurons in our Body, and the large-scale Cosmos is a macrocosm of our House. It is the same form, harmonizing and coordinating information at vastly different scales.

The universe itself looks like it might literally be “the mind of God,” a self-aware matrix in the process of creating complex in-formation. Awareness is not rare, but the ground of being. There has only ever been, is, or ever will be awareness being aware of itself.

That said, our limited form of consciousness might be rare and in a way, precious. We occupy the privileged position of being right in the middle of it all.

ScalingLaw555

However, our awareness doesn’t require human minds anymore than the Sun requires a candle for illumination.

SIPS-555

Everything is sacred, everything is precious.
