Yule Blessings!

Yule blessings everyone! This is a very special Winter Solstice this year. There is also a full lunar eclipse coinciding with it. This is the first time in over 300 years that this event has happened. Unfortunately I am unable to actually witness it as it is pouring cats and dogs, here in Los Angeles. Though I can't see it, I can feel it and work with it's energies. As I type this I am just waiting for midnight to come so I can begin my Yule ritual, welcoming back the sun. It is a time of introspection and for planning for the future. What do you you want to come into fruition this coming year? Now is the time to ask the Goddess (or whom ever your Higher Power is) for what you would like to manifest. Also don't forget to be grateful for the things that were manifested with in the past year. Look with in yourself, meditate, journal or do dreamwork. Tonight I will be honoring Isis and her divine child Horus and asking for happiness for myself and all of those I know. I wish everyone a wonderful holiday, which ever holiday it is you celebrate!

Selenite's Healing Properties

Selenite is one of my favorite healing stones. It assists in spiritual activation, communication with angels and spirit guides, clearing etheric blockages and overcoming stagnation. The chakra's it has the best effect on are Third eye and the Crown.  According to Robert Simmons in The Book of Stones, "The intensity of energy delivered by Selenite is greater thank almost any other stone for the upper chakras" This stone is wonderful for cleaning the auric field, negative energies and purifying objects. I use it to purify other crystals before I begin using them for healing as well as afterward, I also use a Selenite wand when purifying ritual tools. What I love about it, is that Selenite purifies itself. It works well with most other stones, in fact I have yet to find one that isn't complimented by Selenite. This stone is essential in any crystal healers toolbox.

Happy Summer Solstice aka Litha!

     Today is the first day of summer, when the sun enters the  tropic of Cancer, the longest day of the year and a Pagan Holiday. . Other names include mid-summer, St. Johns Day and Gathering Day. For Pagans it is a Lesser Sabbat or quarter day.
      This is a celebration of the sun as the Sun God is reached full power and the Goddess is in full pregnancy as the earth is ready for harvest. Since the year is now waning the Oak King who represents a growing youth and the waxing time of year gives over the reign to the Holly King, who represents the mature man and wanning year. Other deities that can be honored today include Amaterasu,Astarte, Aten, Apollo,Epona,Hestia, Horus, Istar,Juno,Lugh, Minerva, Ra, Sekhmet, Sol and Sulis. This is a short list, basically any Father God, Sun Deity or pregnant Goddess can be recognized during Litha.
     This is a time of fertility, growth, preparing for the harvest and handfastings. You can purify and renew you're spirit, commune with fairies, do divination, dedicate or re-dedicate yourself and celebrate your inner light!

The Dash by Linda Ellis

The Dash
by Linda Ellis
I read of a man who stood to speak
At the funeral of a friend
He referred to the dates on her tombstone
From the beginning to the end
He noted that first came her date of her birth
And spoke the following date with tears,
But he said what mattered most of all
Was the dash between those years
For that dash represents all the time
That she spent alive on earth.
And now only those who loved her
Know what that little line is worth.
For it matters not how much we own;
The cars, the house, the cash,
What matters is how we live and love
And how we spend our dash.
So think about this long and hard.
Are there things you’d like to change?
For you never know how much time is left,
That can still be rearranged.
If we could just slow down enough
To consider what’s true and real
And always try to understand
The way other people feel.
And be less quick to anger,
And show appreciation more
And love the people in our lives
Like we’ve never loved before.
If we treat each other with respect,
And more often wear a smile
Remembering that this special dash
Might only last a little while.
So, when your eulogy is being read
With your life’s actions to rehash
Would you be proud of the things they say
About how you spent your dash?

Rubik's Cube In Center Of Earth? Computer Simulations Support New Model Of Earth's Core
By Science Daily
Feb 12, 2008 - 1:34:32 PM



Swedish researchers have presented evidence to support their new theory about the structure of the earth's core. The findings may be of significance for our understanding of the cooling down of the earth, and of the stability of the earth’s magnetic field. "We found that the body-centered cubic structure of iron is the only structure that could correspond to the experimental observations," says Börje Johansson, professor of condensed-matter theory at Uppsala University.

It has long been known that the inner core of the earth, a sphere consisting of a solid mass with a radius of about 1,200 km, is mainly made up of iron. However, seismic observations have shown that elastic waves pass more rapidly through this core in directions that are parallel to the earth’s axis of rotation than in directions parallel to the equator­-a phenomenon that has not been previously explained. At the high temperatures that prevail in the core of the earth, these waves should pass at the same speed regardless of their direction.

In the present study, scientists from Uppsala University and KTH present an explanation for this puzzling characteristic. The new publication in Science is part of a series of articles published by the same research team in Nature and Science.

Initially, in 2003, they published strong theoretical proof that the earth’s core assumes the so-called body-centered cubic crystal structure at high temperatures­-a structure that despite its high degree of symmetry evinces a surprisingly high level of elastic anisotropy, that is, its elastic properties are contingent on direction. This theory about the crystal structure directly contradicted the then prevailing view, but since then the theory has found both experimental and theoretical support.

In this new study the researchers present simulations of how seismic waves are reproduced in iron under the conditions that prevail in the core of the earth, showing a difference of about 12 percent depending on their direction-­which suffices as an explanation for the puzzling observations. First the trajectories of movement were calculated for several million atoms in strong interaction with each other. On this basis, the scientists were then able to determine that the progress of the sound waves was actually accurately described in the computer-generated model for iron under the conditions prevailing in the core of the earth.

“We found that the body-centered cubic structure of iron is the only structure that could correspond to the experimental observations,” says Börje Johansson, professor of condensed-matter theory at Uppsala University.

The earth’s heat balance, like its magnetic field, is dependent on the amount of heat that is stored in the inner core of the earth. These conditions, in turn, are dependent on the crystal structure of the iron in the inner core. Previously these estimates were based on models deriving from the hexagonal structure of iron in the inner core. The Swedish scientists’ discovery will now entail a critical revaluation of the cooling off of the earth and of the stability of its magnetic field.

“This study opens new perspectives for our understanding of the earth’s past, present, and future,” says Natalia Skorodumova, a researcher at the Department of Physics and Materials Science.

In their studies these researchers have used models based on the so-called density-functional theory for which Walter Kohn was awarded the 1999 Nobel Prize. The calculations were carried out using the most powerful parallel supercomputers in existence, in Stockholm and Linköping.

The body-centered cubic crystal structure forms a cube with atoms in each corner and a further atom in the middle of this cube. It is oriented in such a way that its great diagonal is directed along the earth’s axis of rotation, which makes it possible for the iron to evince sound propagations with the velocities observed.

I am a first wave Indigo.
Want to know more about Indigo's go to
Here are some traits of Indigo's (from above site):
-Indigos have an evolved awareness of how things work, therefore, many of the rigid rules and methods of learning Math, English, and Physics (NOT metaphysics or quantum physics) make no sense to them.
-Indigos have a strong desire to know "why" Â…and if they don't see "the point" in something, (or if is it isn't explained properly), will feel it is simply not worth their time/energy and will either react with resistance or just simply "blow off" the people/things that seem not worth their time and energy.
-Because of their feeling so foreign to this planet, a very high percentage of Indigos have been put on "Antidepressants" to make them appear "Normal" and fit in our societyÂThisis is just a temporary fix though, and only adds to their challenges.
-Because of their feeling so "alien" here, many go through periods of severe grief, loneliness, and displacementÂAndand may turn to drugs, alcohol, or attempt suicide for a way out.

There are many more go check out the site!

Inscription on the royal tombs at Thebes

Thou art the Great Cat, the avenger of the gods, and the judge of words, and the president of the sovereign chiefs and the governor of the holy Circle; thou art indeed...the Great Cat.

Hmmm.... Santa or Odin?

Okay here is more on Santa's origin......
Similarities of Santa & the Norse God Odin.

Sinterklaas was adopted by the country's English-speaking majority under the name Santa Claus, and his legend of a kindly old man was united with old Nordic folktales of a magician who punished naughty children and rewarded good children with presents. ("Santa Claus" Encyclopedia Britannica 99).
Other similarities:
- Odin has a long white beard
- Odin lived in the North (Valhalla)
- Odin rode through the sky on a horse on the Winter Solstice
- He rewarded good children with gifts

(Crichton, Robin. Who is Santa Claus? The Truth Behind a Living Legend. Bath: The Bath Press, 1987, pp. 55-56)

I find the current controversy over X-mass histerical!
I hate to break it to the Christians but ....

It was Yule before it was Christmas !!!!!!!!

Here is some interesting tidbits about Santa being Pagan

The unusual and common characteristics of Santa and Thor are too close to ignore.

* An elderly man, jovial and friendly and of heavy build.
* With a long white beard.
* His element was the fire and his color red.
* Drove a chariot drawn by two white goats, named called Cracker and Gnasher.
* He was the Yule-god. (Yule is Christmas time).
* He lived in the Northland (North Pole).
* He was considered the cheerful and friendly god.
* He was benevolent to humans.
* The fireplace was especially sacred to him.
* He came down through the chimney into his element, the fire.

Even today in Sweden, Thor represents Santa Claus. The book, The Story of the Christmas Symbols, records:

Swedish children wait eagerly for Jultomten, a gnome whose sleigh is drawn by the Julbocker, the goats of the thunder god Thor. With his red suit and cap, and a bulging sack on his back, he looks much like the American Santa Claus. (Barth, Edna. Holly, Reindeer, and Colored Lights, The Story of the Christmas Symbols. New York: Clarion Books, 1971, p. 49)

Thor was probably history’s most celebrated and worshipped pagan god. His widespread influence is particularly obvious in the fifth day of the week, which is named after him – Thursday (a.k.a. Thor’s Day).

It is ironic that Thor’s symbol was a hammer. A hammer is also the symbolic tool of the carpenter – Santa Claus. It is also worth mentioning that Thor’s helpers were elves and like Santa’s elves, Thor’s elves were skilled craftsman. It was the elves who created Thor’s magic hammer.

In the Handbook of Christian Feasts and Customs, author Francis Weiser traces the origin of Santa to Thor: "Behind the name Santa Claus actually stands the figure of the pagan Germanic god Thor." (Weiser, Francis X. Handbook of Christian Feasts and Customs. New York: Harcourt, Brace & World, Inc., 1952, p. 113)

Fe - male
Fe - line
fe = iron
What is at the center of the earth? Iron! Who is the Earth? GAIA!
FE a very interesting prefix to choose for females and cats and the ore at the middle of Gaia (her heart maybe?)
