Divine Light and Duality

According to esoteric literature Earth is approaching  the Photon Belt orbiting the star cluster Pleides, dates for this event are unknown but considered imminent. This ‘photon belt’ is also referred to as Alcyone’s Rings. Alcyone is the principal sun of the Pleides, 7 suns gravitate within its orbit, the 7th being our own sun which circles Alcyone. The Rings of Alcyone are composed of ‘manasic’ radiation believed to be caused by a cosmic event, the splitting of the electron. ‘Manasic’ is a Sanskrit term referring to Mind and in accordance with the cosmic Law of Correspondence, the human mind is affected by these cosmic forces both individually and collectively.

Photons have been described as ‘packets of light’ which generate electro magnetic fields. The potential impact of the ‘photon belt’  upon human consciousness continues to cause debate. Many within the New Age movement believe this shift represents a temporary window with the potential for enlightenment and elevation to a higher plane of existence. For some this will no doubt be true yet spiritual evolution is a path of choice, there is no ‘Free Pass’. It has been acknowledged historically that ‘divine light’ also purges.We are currently witnessing the negative effects of atomic resonance on human consciousness, one aspect of the global chaos and confusion, mirroring the splitting.The effect  is dependent upon our ability to absorb and integrate the powerful light. Cosmic cycles and orbits are beyond the influence of humanity, we must adapt to the changing environment in order to sustain mental cohesion.

It is part of the human condition to resist change, the mind must investigate, examine, reflect and decide before change can occur. Even then there must be integration before the Will concedes. Ancient texts describe the dual aspects of consciousness as the Higher or Etheric Mind sometimes referred to as the Higher Self and the Lower Intellectual mind which governs cognitive ability. The Higher consciousness corresponds to our origins, divine essence and spirituality. Intuition is the interim link to the Lower or Intellectual Mind which rationalizes our experience and governs waking consciousness.

It has been said that ‘the light which illumines also blinds’ for this is a process of acceptance of something greater than ourselves. Some have made a correllation with ‘the Quickening’  an influx of divine light which Saves, as described in Christian  ‘End Times’ philosophy. Whatever our belief system, we are free to accept or reject unfolding events. Enlightenment is  the process by which light is assimilated by the mind bringing about a profound shift in consciousness. This can be a slow and painful process as we question,  a new reality.This is the eternal human dilemma, the argument between the mind and the soul.






KOREA – Unstoppable Force meets Immovable Object

As the world watches and waits to see what strategy the American President will adopt in response to Kim Jung Il’s latest missile launch, we might pause to consider a 3rd century philosophical treatise which describes the challenge.,“A man was trying to sell a spear and a shield; asked how good his spear was, he said that his spear could pierce any shield. Then, when asked how good his shield was, he said that it could defend from all spear attacks. Then one person asked him what would happen if he were to take his spear to strike his shield; the seller could not answer.”        

The words of a Chinese general and military strategist come down to us from the 6th century: Sun Tzu 孫子 (c 6th century BCE) authored The Art of War, an immensely influential ancient Chinese book on military strategy. His advice regarding military decision making:

                                               “First know your enemy”

Korea has suffered repeated invasion and occupation over the centuries, North Korea views American intentions as hostile and latest polls suggest that 94% of Americans view North Korea as a threat.. A glance at the history of the people  may assist us in gaining a better understanding of the ‘ paranoia’ which is often levelled at the country.

History: The Old kingdom was founded in northern Korea and Manchuria in 2333 BC. In 108BC The Han empire of China conquered the northern part of the Korean peninsula administering it for almost 400 years. South and central Korea were governed by the Gorveo Kingdom until its fall when the Korean peninsula became a united territory under the Josean dynasty which ruled over the region for more than 500 years, from 1392. In the subsequent colonial era wealthy and powerful nations extended control and influence over weaker nations using terms such as ‘protectorate’ and ‘sphere of influence’. Korea became a ‘protectorate’ of China with continuing conflict between China and Japan to gain power and influence over the peninsula.

1894 Korea was a ‘protectorate’ of China when Japan forced the Chinese to sign a humiliating peace treaty which ostensibly gave Korea ‘full and complete independence and autonomy’. In fact this was a ploy, enabling Japan to gain a foothold on the peninsula, providing access to a supply of rich raw materials.

1905 Korea was forced to sign a ‘protectorate’ treaty’ with Japan designed to open up Korean ports to Japanese trade. Japanese citizens were granted territorial rights and the Japanese forced the abdication of the Emperor of Korea, replacing him with his son as a puppet.1910 Japan annexed Korea exploiting the Korean people throughout the brutal occupation. 1911 Cultural erosion: An Imperial Decree forced Koreans to surrender their family names and adopt Japanese names, the Korean language was prohibited. 1932 Land Dispossession: Korean land owners, unable to provide the documentation to prove ownership lost their land to Japanese settlers. Dispossessed Koreans were forced to become tenants and made to pay over half their crops as rent, this resulted in many Korean women being forced into factories or prostitution to pay taxes.

1945 Korea was liberated from Japanese occupation when Russia invaded and occupied North Korea and American forces moved into the south. The country was temporarily administered by the joint trusteeship of Russia and the US as allies, the intention being to grant independence after 5 years. As a result of the subsequent Cold War between Russia and America administration became contentious and the country was split into two parts to be administered separately.

1948 The two regions were divided at the 38th parallel, each with its own government. Both claimed to be the legitimate government and neither accepted the border as permanent.

 Kim Il Sung became the leader of North Korea from the division of the country, North Korea became a workers state with close alliance to the Soviet Union. South Korea was aligned to the US. 1950 North Korea invaded South Korea with the support of Stalin, the objective being unification, this is referred to by North Korea as the ‘Fatherland Liberation War’. A UN force came to the aid of South Korea, 88% of the military being American. North Korea was subject to a massive bombing campaign and China came to its defense with Russia providing ariel support. In China the war is called ‘The War to resist US aggression and aid Korea’.

1953 An Armistice ended the fighting but no peace treaty was ever signed, the two countries remain technically at war with the 38th parallel the boundary.1960s North Korea, supported by the USSR enjoyed a higher standard of living than South Korea, 1980s due to Japanese and American investment the economy of South Korea flourished. The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 resulted in a loss of economic aid, adversely affecting the economy of North Korea. Since that time China has been North Korea’s only major ally.

2017 All attempts to impose economic sanctions to stop North Korea acquiring nuclear weapons have so far failed. North Korea insists that a nuclear defense system is essential in view of America’s perceived hostile stance, the 35,000 US personnel stationed in South Korea and the tens of thousands of American troops deployed in bases in Japan, Guam and the Philippines.

The most successful Commanders in history have been forced to choose between governing options.  Accommodate  – Negotiate – Withdraw – Attack

In the words of President Trump:  ‘All options are on the table’

His latest statement being:  ‘Talking is not the answer’











How did a tiny island measuring only 210 square miles , located 6,000 miles from California become our ‘permanent  Aircraft carrier’?

Location: Micronesia, Western pacific. History and Culture Archaeological evidence indicates Marianas Islands were one of the first places to be settled by seafaring peoples, over 4000 years ago. The islands appear to have been continuously occupied by people who shared the same culture and language that eventually became known as Chamorro. The last 400 years of Guam’s history has been marked by administrations of three different colonial powers: Spain, the United States and Japan.

1898 Spanish American War began when the US intervened in Cuba’s attempt to gain independence from Spanish colonial rule. Referred to by US Secretary of State John Hay as ‘a splendid little war’  it lasted for only 4 months, ending Spain’s colonial rule in the Americas and  bringing Cuba, Guam, the Philippines and Puerto Rico under American control. Along with the annexation of the Republic of Hawaii, the war made the United States an imperialist nation with Guam, the Philippines and Puerto Rico  ceded as unincorporated US Territories. As such the inhabitants are US citizens by birth but have no voting rights or representation in the US Congress.

When the American cruiser USS Charleston arrived off the shore of Guam on orders to capture the Spanish-controlled island as part of the planned invasion of the Philippines it fired 12 rounds. In response a Spanish officer rowed out to their ship to welcome them; believing this to be a salute. He was quickly taken prisoner and it became apparent that neither the 60 Spanish marines stationed on Guam nor the island’s civilians had any idea that war had broken out between Spain and America two months earlier. The Spanish surrendered, ceding Guam to America.

Referred to as ‘our permanent aircraft carrier’ by American commanders, Guam is considered a strategically important link between the U.S. and Asia, positioned 1,500 miles from the Philippines and 2,000 miles from North Korea . Today the island hosts the US military base and some 30,000 personnel and their families. The American base is both revered and reviled by citizens of Guam who fear that its presence makes them a target for any potential attack by North Korea in the current escalation of hostilities.

CORRELATION: Solar Eclipse and historical events

Cosmic Laws govern the Universe, one of which is the Law of Cause and Effect or Karma. This fundamental principal states that every action generates a reaction, a return of the energy in kind; we ‘reap what we sow.’ The energy returns to us in accordance with the Law of Cycles. Without an understanding of the divine principles we remain ignorant and so compound our errors. The Law applies equally at the personal and the collective level affecting individuals, communities and all nations, played out through repeated incarnation, the refinement of souls  through experience. We are all our brother’s keeper.

Karmic energy is neutral, The Law is exactreflecting past actions  both positively and negatively.  The American belief in ‘manifest destiny’  led to expansionism,  its magnificent achievements  built on a foundation of slavery and genocide. The American continent was opened up by early settlers whose wagon trains, railroads and ranches displaced the indigenous tribes. The effect was compounded by governmental policies which ultimately resulted in what has been described as  ethnic cleansing. The Oregon Trail crossed America and was used by the wagon trains of some 400,000 settlers, farmers, miners, ranchers, and business owners and their families. 

The eclipse began in Oregon. a region originally populated   by some 50,000 Native Americans until government legislation in 1850 forcibly removed  tribes and offered 2.5 million acres of their land, free to white settlers. The Oregon Trail was linked to the California Trail: Evidence of human occupation by native American tribes of California dates from at least 19,000 years ago. These aboriginal people had 500 distinct sub-tribes or groups, each consisting of 50 to 500 individual members. The California Gold Rush began on January 24th 1848 with the discovery of a gold nugget by James Marshall, who had been hired by a California land baron, John Sutter who was building an empire on 50,000 acres of Indian land near Sacramento. Sutter kidnapped native Americans and forced them to work for him. It was recorded that Sutter “keeps 600 to 800 Indians in a complete state of Slavery.” The discovery of gold brought 300,000 people to the area in two years. Of an estimated 50,000 native Americans living in the area at this time, only 16,000 were alive by 1990.

1846 Mexican-American War: America was victorious and Mexico ceded to the United States approximately 525,000 square miles (55% of its pre war territory).February 2nd 1848: The Treaty of Guadelope Hildago (coinciding with the discovery of gold in California) brought land under the control of America 

The land would eventually become the future states of Washington, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Oregon and Texas as well as portions of what would later become Oklahoma, Colorado, Kansas, Wyoming, and Montana. Native American land titles were not honoured. The native tribal population was reduced by 90% during the 19th century—from more than 200,000 to approximately 15,000 mostly due to disease.

Slavery played a major part in Oregon’s historyIn December 1844, Oregon prohibited slavery while simultaneously passing its Black Exclusion Law, which prohibited African Americans from entering the territory. Any African Americans in the region after the law was passed were forced to leave, those who did not comply were arrested and beaten. They received no less than twenty and no more than thirty-nine stripes across their bare back. If they still did not leave, this process could be repeated every six months.

The eclipse ended in Charleston Carolina. Charleston was founded in 1660 when King Charles ll gave the land (which became the Province of Carolina) to 8 of his loyal friends. The area was inhabited by the Cusabo Indians and the settlers declared war on them in 1671, forcing the Indians to cede large tracts of land and making them pay a humiliating symbolic payment of Tribute when the war ended.

Tobacco to Cotton: The early white settlers had created tobacco plantations in Virginia, Colonists tried to use Native Americans for labour but they were susceptible to European diseases and died in large numbers. The plantation owners then turned to enslaved Africans. In the 1660’s, the government of the colony of Virginia established the legal framework for perpetual servitude based on colour revising its laws in that decade to establish that black slaves could be kept enslaved  permanently, generation after generation.The invention of the cotton gin improved processing of raw material, increasing production and profits; this led to the transition from tobacco to cotton in the southern

States, reinforcing the regions dependence upon slave labour. Congress outlawed the African slave trade in 1808 but by 1860 the slave population had almost tripled to nearly 4 million with more than half living in the cotton producing states of the south. The American Civil War, fought over the abolition of slavery resulted in the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863.

Despite the progress made in Civil Rights, the residual karma of injustice is playing out today as civil unrest



 ‘From Sea to Shining Sea’  –  August 21st 2017

 Astronomical significance: The light of the sun is eclipsed by the moon as it passes over, casting a shadow upon the Earth.

Metaphysical significance: The sun represents Father/Spirit/Divine Masculine/External expression. The moon represents Mother/Earth/Divine Feminine/Introspection.

In metaphysical terms a total solar eclipse represents an Initiation experience requiring introspection, an opportunity for self examination, looking within. The light is temporarily eclipsed, revealing the true consciousness, individual perception and intention, whether at an individual or collective level.

The ‘eclipse parties’ as thousands watched the event are an example of the external rather than internal experience of the observers. This was not simply an event to be observed but one with major impact denoting a major shift.


Sacred Numerology Esoteric codes decipher the meaning of events through the resonance of numbers:.

Location and Timing:  This is the first solar eclipse to cross the entire continent of America in 99 years. 99 is a Master number, a soul message to extend effort at a point of closure. In simple terms this was a cosmic event directly affecting the American continent and its people. An initiatory experience where the collective consciousness is revealed.

The eclipse began at Oregon, the 33rd state, ending at South Carolina, at the 33rd parallel (33 is a Master number resonating with cosmic consciousness, wisdom and justice) denoting the degree of  spiritual attainment. The eclipse cast a 70 mile wide shadow across the whole American continent from coast to coast, linking the southern states from Carolina to the western states of California and Oregon. 7 resonates with collective consciousness and spiritual awakening. 10 is the number of evolutionary journeys. 70 is a sacred number relating to transitions, the culmination of a cycle.

A solar eclipse often signals major historical conflicts and shifts in power relations.

  • A solar eclipse that blackened the sun over the important Mediterranean seaport of Tyre just before Alexander the Great invaded Persia.
  • A solar eclipse passed over the Russian Army on the 21st of August in 1915, this was at the outbreak of World War I. That same solar eclipse also marked the day that saw the opening clashes on the Western Front.
  • The last time a solar eclipse passed over the US was in 1918, this was the year that saw the beginning of America’s post war rise to prominence.
  • 1948 A solar eclipse passed over the center of Korea with the division into North and South.  NASA map shows the path of the Korean War solar eclipse of May 9th 1948.  2018 would be a 70 year cycle.

Spiritual Alchemy


Alchemy – the very word conjures up visions of medieval sorcerers poring over their crucibles in an attempt to turn base metal into gold. Although great efforts were indeed made by medieval alchemists to achieve such ends, the true meaning of ‘alchemy’ has been distorted and lost through the Ages. While the dictionary may state that the origin is French ‘alquemie’ meaning ‘mixture’, we must go back to pre history for the true origins. The word alchemy is derived from Khem, the original name for the land of Egypt which took its name from ‘the Khema’ a group of seven stars in the constellation of Taurus, known today as the Pleiades. The prefix Al was added much later through Arabic Egyptian assimilation. Continue reading


My intention in writing this article was to pose the question: Is technology driving us towards a godless society?  As a starting point I decided to google ‘God’ simply to obtain a definition, expecting of course that there would be several.  Of the the first 3  references: 2 referred to the release of the film Godzilla which grossed  $93 million dollars in its opening weekend and $518,369,590  within weeks. The third reference was to the web hosting giant ‘godaddy’. None of the remaining references related to a Creator, a Supreme Being  or a Deity.  God, whatever we assume that word to mean, would seem to have been supplanted in the mass consciousness by commercialism and entertainment; the question however remains – what part if any does technology play in this?.

SPIRIT AND MATTER – An Astrological Perspective

Cosmic Astrology is a divine science which investigates the configuration of planetary bodies and their influence upon human conduct and behaviour. The New Age movement places great value on free choice as opposed to indoctrination, this is not coincidental  but rather a reflection of the  energy of the Aquarian Age. Free thinking, Innovation and enlightenment are words which express Aquarian energy in its positive form; it is not surprising therefore that at this point many might feel  an ambivalence towards prescribed religious dogma with a yearning for  spiritual enlightenment  in another form. The very word ‘religion’ (from the Latin ‘relegare’ meaning to tie or bind) seems to indicate restriction and limitation yet it denotes a binding to God as opposed to the sensory pull  of the physical world. We can therefore be spiritual without being religious but should not aspire to be religious without being spiritual!

Bodies of Light

‘Light bodies’ can seem like a euphemism unless we understand the basic structure and anatomy of the subtle energy system. We acknowledge that human beings operate from a gross physical body, influenced to some degree by thoughts and feelings which reflect individual personality. We are taught that thoughts are a response to chemical interaction in the brain and that emotions are a response by the endocrine system to the neurological processes. Both statements are partially true but fail to take into account the primary stimulus.photon_dance_2_by_zwopper-d30hffuWhat is it that activates the brain chemistry and triggers sensory reaction? The answer is Light. A photon is the smallest measurable element of electromagnetic radiation, a form of radiant energy, the origin and movement are as yet little understood.

Biological research now proves that cells communicate with each other through a process of electrical discharge. Biophotons (from the Greek βίος meaning ‘life’ and φῶς meaning ‘light’) act upon the entire electromagnetic spectrum transferring information through each of its layers. Biophotons emitted by the human body therefore modulate fundamental physiological processes. (See: Molecules of Emotion by Candace Pert) Continue reading
