Source: You Ready To Caucus for Hillary?
Come and Join us on Caucus Day this Saturday, this Holy Saturday. Hillary is the best candidate in my opinion because::::::: Tell me why you think she is the best candidate to be elected as the 45th President!!!!! 1.) She is the most experienced Political Candidate on the ballot. 2) She is seeking to change the laws with respect to 1) Campaign Finance Reform, and is also 100 % for Wall Street Reform. 3) She wants to update Federal Law with respect to Obamacare. 4) She seeks to change policies regarding Student Loans.
3) She will continue to support Planned Parenting. 4) She Will Stand up against Wall Street! 5) America has never in its History elected a Female President until this year. America needs to catch up with the rest of the world where women hold Executive Power. Even our Mother Britain who is now our greatest ally with France have already elected female Executives. Women have a genetically inherited ability that has been with them since the time of Humanity’s evolution from Homo Erectus to Homo Sapiens Sapiens. It is in there brain physiology to be able to multitask better than men in all areas. Men’s role continues to hold strong with our unique ability to move quickly, have bigger bones and stronger muscles and to protect their families, nations and cultures. Women have continuously been recognized as Great Administrators specifically due to their unique ability to multitask. And besides if women want to take command of the family and sociocultural responsibilities, let’s let them!. I think most men just want to be physical, active, and busy, building, making, and designing new tools to make things easier. Men probably tend to just love the hands on type of work. Personally, I love to risk everything and hop on my motorcycle and fly, and I tend to be the safest motorcyclist on the road. So let’s let these power women take command for a little while. They seem to be able to do their jobs effectively and efficiently. But we men need to be working, not just sitting at home and drinking beer and watching football. I think Hillary can prepare our nation for these kinds of new jobs and we men can get back to work doing the work we really love to do. If women want to bring home the bacon, let them!!! Hillary is the President that will best encourage that. If your a typical guy, what is your favorite activity? Are you tired of being told you have to carry the world on your backs, financially, emotionally? Wouldn’t you rather have more spare time to play, fish, hunt, and be outside learning about the beautiful environments you live in, while at the same time, feeling like you can indeed make a serious contribution to your family in all aspects not just financially? I know I would. Let’s agree to give women a little more executive power in our world, as the Hillary campaign is saying THE TIME IS NOW!!!!!! Let’s give Hillary a try for four years!! Let’ elect her in 2016. After she has sufficiently been given a chance to change and lead our country, and to prove to us that she can make the tough decisions if necessary with respect to Israel, ISIS, and Moslem Holy War crap, and essentially with U.S. Foreign Policy. We cannot afford to alienate our worldwide allies anymore. Let’s be the Nation we are intended to be!!! The Nation who honors free speech, Freedom of Religion, and Equal rights for all. We men can get back together on inventing, building, and innovating the world as we are intended. I love children, but I also love being busy at work. The responsibilities of parenting need to be truly equal for men and women. Two incomes is always better than one. Let us learn to give equal time and focus on being with our children but also on working and contributing financially to the family unit. After four years of Hillary, we might all be totally surprised to discover how great a job she has done. America needs to come back to the Center! We need to get things done as a Nation United on those values and core beliefs that continue to make our Nation the greatest in the world, and……reinstill a positive light on Government. In this next four years, lets commit to continuing to have a healthy and strong Democracy, and to ensure productivity, innovation, and enhanced social values, as well as fixing our horribly broken infrastructure. Hillary is the only candidate who can do all of these things for the greatest Nation on Earth!!!!! The United States of America. You know maybe we can offer statehood to Puerto Rico, and Guam!!! Both of these territories have an extremely strategic location for protecting our nation. Our nation can only work as a United Body!!!!! That is why we call ourselves the United States of America! I think Hillary may be the only one who can bring our nation back together as United on all fronts! GOP and DEMS working together for positive change and continued economic stability still continuing all of those qualities listed in the Bill of Rights that make or break our Nation!!! Come to Caucus’s in WA and vote with me for Hillary Clinton, the next President of the United States, the first woman President, the future 45th President of these Grand United States.

Exploring the teachings of Daniel Giamario and Shamanic Astrology in an interpretive exploration and discussion of misunderstood interactions as a mentee and student of Shamanic Astrology Mystery School and Daniel Giamario. The link above will give you our two Astrological Charts for review side by side for comparison notes and topics around Shamanic Astrology according to Daniel Giamario and interpreted by Greg Garceau, MATP former student and member of SAMS.
I am so pleased that so many are interested in what I have to share at this blog. I hope I am able to continue to provide valuable perspectives and varying points of view on my blog. It is what makes this site run, is your continued support, now if only I could get some paid services from all you interested parties. That would make my day. The focus of this blog is of course primarily for sharing points of view and open forum for those interested in talking about factually based debate focused on efficient and clear problem solving applications in search of a utopia of global cooperation and diplomacy. I may be an American, but my greater motivation is to be a Universal Citizen and Human with all my brothers, sisters, and transgendered individuals here on Planet Earth. I predict what happens this year may significantly change the course of human affairs for the next generations. So we can choose to make decision based on providing a world for our children today, and for the next seven generations. I never quite understood the deeper meaning proposed and offered by Grand Master of Shamanic Asrology Mystery School the man himself, now living in Manila, Phillipines my mentor and old friend Daniel Giamario. Even though he and I don’t always mesh in the way two successful sensitive and aware men should sometimes, I value his continued research and explorations of the burgeoning field of Shamanic Astrology. I have to let you all know, Daniel and I don’t always get along as two headstrong, knowledgeable and aware men should, and I think that might be related to our personal Astrological Charts. He may not fully see it in the way that I hope to impart and perhaps make my own personal imprint on regarding the underlying structures and teachings of Daniels theoretically and observable based hypotheses and conclusions regarding our deeper connections to our Universe, and planetary solar system. Let me briefly explain why I have come to this particularly unique and perhaps confrontational point of view with the deeper connection of two powerful and spiritually/shamanically motivated men, who love Astrology, and Astronomy. Let’s put Daniel’s and my chart side by side to compare and analyze the similarities and differences between his and my charts. I hope Daniel that you won’t take offense to my logical applications using your system for comparing our charts and thus our masculine motivators. It is only meant as a kind and inspiring discussion between two large minds in an attempt to perhaps mend some of our differences, even though you might not feel like there is much to discuss about our interactions with each other. Take this as a friendly open forum for exploring the deeper hidden mysteries of your System of Shamanic Astrology.
Let’s begin… In Daniels chart, his moon is in Capricorn in the 4th house, He comes from the Capricorn Mystery School and seeks to move towards the new school of Libra which is where his ascendant or rising sign is. His past storyline is about letting go of a powerful strong initiatory motivation factor of knowledge, Mastery the Elder archetype, Lawgiver, The Practical business man, the Exiled Scapegoat because he has “graduated” from that lineage or old school and is ready to enact the mysteries and exploration of his New School or current life intent of Libra.
Daniel, as you know this is your lineage and is formed and founded on the archetype of your Moon with the your Taurus job according to the position of your south node. As a young man, you felt required to be utilizing the Taurus job archetype in the Capricorn School of your Lineage. With a major in Capricorn and a Taurus job which translates as sensualism, hedonism, with a focus on enjoying and participating in all aspects of life. This kind of overemphasis on potential rigidity, gluttony, laziness, is not a good place for such a predominantly masterful lineage of Capricorn. How does one work through the potential issues that they may encounter with this school? And as you clearly explained the Taurus job and school is foreign territory for generally post-modernized men who are learning to let go of old patriarchal control mechanisms in search of achieving their life’s purposes. We Taurean job people also have a hard time resisting any sort of changes, especially if it potentially could disprove our masculine bull-headed natures. It can of course lead men like you and me into an undiagnosed form of Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Wouldn’t you agree? And suppose our Venus or aphrodite nature is hidden or generally discouraged by the society at large, how does a man cope with such repressive dynamics in his world denying his deeper Venusian Lover Nature. For women, it is much more acceptable to get locked into the habit patterns of these potentially self-destructive behaviors because society encourages them to mother and seduce their lovers and companion as a matter of common sense. What do you think about that?
According to the script as described in the Shamanic Astrology Handbook authored by you. Your storyline begins with the completion of the old patterns of your past life intent or school you graduated from upon taking a new form as a baby, in your mother’s womb and starting into your new work and studies in the Libran school of current life intent. Yet as you mentioned repeatably multiple times in your teachings and courses I participated in that, we all must learn to release and let go of our old storylines found in the lineage and adopt a new way of seeing and experiencing life, yet as a teacher and facilitator, I observed in your behavior and leadership attempts how difficult this can be as a leader and facilitator of your grand work. And to add to our social interactions with each other, your new Job in the Libran School is directed towards Scorpio, whereas, in my case, it is just the opposite, I come from the Scorpionic School with the Scorpionic job. Do you think from an observational witness perspective that you and I may have encountered these conflicting natures in our everyday interactions with each other, whether we were conscious of it or unconscious of it in our interactions in your classroom.
I discovered how difficult it can be to also renounce our authoritarian natures defined in part in such power oriented lineages that we were born into. I come from the Scorpio Moon Lineage, with the Scorpio Job and you come from authoritarian Capricorn School Moon Lineage, and Taurean Job as described above. Do you think at some level we inadvertently, unconsciously or other triggered each others buttons at a deep transcendental level of power and authority according primarily to our habitually bound similarly authoritarian based lineages? I wonder.
As we continue through the storyline, it is imperative that we also take into account the next phase of our scriptural storyline, which is of course, the antithesis. If we have blockage in our personality or psychic development to acknowledge the nature and tools of the planetary archetypal energies that predominate in our lives, life may appear to be extremely challenging and crisis oriented. For in this phase we encounter our personal planets, which include Mars, for the masculine motivations, Venus for our Feminine motivations, Mercury, for the thinking tool, and the Sun who provides the energetic tools or fuel to achieve life purpose and perhaps fulfillment as we shift from our old lineage based school to our new ascendant based school. Mars, Venus, and Mercury may at times appear hidden in the application towards our new school and life purpose. In your case your Venusian energies may be veiled by the Piscean archetypes found in your twelfth house, while at the same time my Martian energies are also veiled by the same Piscean archetypes. How interesting? Don’t you think?
Were we ever meant to get along in the manner we dreamed of, as mentor and mentee, in the school? Is that why perhaps you never gave me the opportunity to finish my training and rather discouraged me from finishing my certification? Who knows? But let’s continue.
You know my time is ripe for exploration as I encounter my chironic return? Do you remember how yours went? I am glad you added a treatise about the Chironic Initiation in your revised and updated version of the Shamanic Astrology Handbook.
If these tools offered by Mercury, Mars, Venus, are blocked due to Life circumstances we might forget how important they can and should be in achieving the goals set forth unconsciously or consciously when we venture forth into a new school of exploratory transcendental learning processes.
Just as a matter of notation, in your chart, your Mars is in Scorpio in the 3rd house, your Venus is in Virgo conjunct your Saturn in the 12th house, even by your standards this energy might be hard to uncover or unravel in the pursuit of achieving your life purpose as set forth by your Libran new school, and your Mercury is conjunct your South Node in Scorpio and the second house, supporting the job motivations of the Taurean archetypal tools for success. In my case, my Mars, and Mercury are conjunct in the twelfth house perhaps channeling the Piscean archetypal tools to achieve my life purpose, and my Venus is guess what in my Second house channeling the Taurean Archetypal tools necessary to achieve my life purpose. How interesting, my Venusian focus is forthcoming for defining and developing my Taurus Job, for my New School as you so humbly encouraged yet nonetheless, have moderate difficulty processing and working with my pragmatic Gemini Psychopompous new School’s archetypal nature, that I have chosen to explore and work with this time around. I could tell when I took courses with you how distracting my Geminian nature was to you. I even remember hearing from you or from mom how discouraging it was for you to work with my radical Geminian New School? Do you have a similar understanding? My personal nature you were so humbly encouraging me to explore and learn, has always been seen and experienced as conflicting and distracting while you were teaching. I think you might have felt that my pragmatism and outspoken nature, was being put out solely as a way to sabotage your leadership and authority in your workshops, when I was just acting on your encouragement to explore my Geminian Nature, and wanted to add to and/or support your initial conclusions, as I am trying to do now, with this posting on my personal blog and web site.
You know I am staking my reputation and status, to possibly come to a more suitable acknowledgement and appreciation for all that you have done to make SAMS so successful using the techniques and processes set forth by you with regards to the practice of Shamanic Astrology.. Please understand that I am not blogging to undermine your authority with regards to the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School. My hope is to open a dialogue and discussion with you regarding these wonderful teachings as a concerned responsible man who values your feedback and input.
So to continue. My lineage based on my moon position and my former job as Scorpio Master of the Scorpio Mystery school. My south node is in my eighth house, and my moon is in my sixth house in the sign of Scorpio making me a Scorpio Scorpio lineage and job role, that I too, must learn to renounce in search of my new School of Gemini determined by my Gemini Ascendant fulfilling the role of the Taurus Job. The only archetype I have not yet fully explained according to the Shamanic Astrology Workbook that serves to structure and define my lineage is Scorpio. In your book, The Scorpio School investigates the deepest most powerful part of the emotional, and physical realms and mastering them. This means “learning to respond to the deepest desires without attachment to results,Edgewalking with Passion and Intensity, Tantric Intimacy, Life Force Energy as the Path to God. As the Master of my destiny, fully in conrol of my powerful will, I have graduated from this school, and thus am the Master of its teachings, with a focus on bringing Spirit Into Matter, for experiencing the deepest most powerful feelings in the physical realm and mastering them as an end in itself. Death, Rebirth, Regeneration, and the Underworld dimension form the foundations of my deepest most fulfilling desires, in order to develop personal boundaries, and a capacity to “discover what turns you on”. WOW pretty Powerful stuff, but Power is useless and ineffective without constant humility and determined focus, I can say that I have a very good sense of what this truly, and deeply means to me. If I am not mistaken, your new job is to explore these dimensions in your life, am I right? Because you have your north node in the eighth house, where my south node was when I transmutated into this body, for nine months of gestation in my mothers’ womb. Maybe we have some more exchanges to explore with regards to the foundational aspects of your teachings. What do you think? However, I love women,so lets you and I explore these natures with our vast expanded minds and see what we might still be able to learn from each other, me as mentee to your mentor. Let’s not break the bonds we have developed due to errors made in our pasts due to potential issues beyond our control when I studied with and under you for almost seven years. Let’s drop the hatchet on our previous personality ego-based failings and rekindle our friendship as we search together for solutions.
To continue, phase two the antithesis. My Mars, and Mercury are conjunct my Jupiter in the Piscean twelfth house. Mars, represents the aspects of my personal animus, and Venus according to your teachings reflects the inner aspects of my personal Anima. In my case Mars in in the sign of Taurus, which would suggest that I am one of the men, that you described: to once again quote the handbook, regarding the archetype of Taurus for men, you state that; “Healthy and authentic Taurus masculine qualities are similar to those found in the female gender, but when mixed with additional yang energies in a man it produces an exquisite balance of giving and receiving, of action and receptivity. This means that healthy Taurus for men is not lazy, indulgent, or slothful. Rather, when healthy these are men with fully developed capacities for intimacy and savoring life at its deepest levels. They are true artists and epicures. Thanks Daniel for your great complements, and affirmation for being a man in his fully potent capacity. I really appreciate that. If I am not mistaken you too, have to deal with these kind of energies and sexual dynamics but in your case the focus is on releasing these desires in search of exploring the deeper hidden powers and dynamics of Scorpio i just described in your new job for you Libran new School. Do you think we might be able to exchange ideas and/or experiences related to understanding and exploring these dynamics, in a plutonic friendship without confrontation, or conflict?
Amazingly, your Mercury is also in the 2nd house in Scorpio conjunct your south node. How fascinating? it seems like you and I have some old karmic bonds that we might need to evaluate and release and also work through? Do you think it can be done, in a supportive nonoffensive way in a workshop with other participants also? And then to add to that configuration on your chart, Mars, and Chiron are also in your second house. Such valuable tools. Wow, as the old sayings say, a Mind is truly a horrible thing to waste. Wouldn’t you agree, friend? Now in my case my Mercury is in Taurus, conjunct my Jupiter, and Mars in my twelfth house. Mercury doesn’t generally work well in Taurus, but you and I have learned to find resolution. From what I remember with regards to your Mercury cycle teachings, your Mercury, is of the psychopomp form and mine is found on the other side of the Mercury cycle, like Cayelin’s Mercury. Wow, our minds may be working once again at odds with each other, yet, we are able to cope and deal with each other’s apparently weird idiosyncrasies. that is truly bizarre, don’t you think, I guess that is what is to be expected with Mercury anyway. How much you and I seem to be bound at levels beyond comprehension? No wonder why I have found you so intriguing. And Guess what, my Venus the archetypal energy dynamic of my personal anima is in my second house, conjunct my north node focused on developing and supporting those Taurean qualities we men have such difficulty dealing with. weird? and Your Venus representing your Anima is where? in the twelfth house conjunct Saturn? Like you I also have a nasty yet powerful Saturn complex with my Moon, and Sun squaring into Saturn, opposing my Uranus Pluto conjunction in the 4th house. More on that later. My next blog will explore the last phase of the script. My Venus is in the sign of Cancer, and your Venus is in the sign of Virgo. On the level of signs and archetypes, my Venus in its sign location has not always been a great supportive influence in my chart overall, but She provides that currently needed initiative I require to achieve my supposed goals set forth according to the teachings of Shamanic Astrology. In your case it seems you have initiatory planetary archetypal energies in droves through your Libran ascendant, your saturn and Venus Conjunction etcetera. BTW. for those reading my blog, the Libran archetype for the new School that Daniel has is focused on Harmony and fulfilling relationships. According to Daniel’s workbook, the Libran school is primarily focused on developing what Daniel refers to as conscious equal partnership, that honors each person as having equal value as to what they should be bringing to the relationship. It is important to understand as Daniel reports, that “equal” in this case does not mean the “same” rather each person has different skills, wisdom, insight, etc, that enhances the relational experience. He goes on to say that this is non-hierarchical, meaning no one is in charge of the relationship or is the primary authority in the relationship. When healthy, there is an equal balance of importance that each person contributes to the relationship exchange. Daniel does this also apply to the teacher – student or mentor-mentee relationship? Can any of us live up to such high standards for relationship building and development? Daniel, what do you think. My Followers and Subscribers, what are your thoughts? If you have not yet taken courses exploring Daniel’s teaching I would highly recommend him. For those who have interacted with Daniel in SAMS, Daniel, don’t take this too seriously…. do you think Daniel does a good job of maintaining equal partnership as he is describing here? Personally, i think there are times when he is truly seeking to be a man, and teacher in relationship in an effective way, but like any human who seeks to explore his/her inner nature, as it relates to the topic of relationship is bound to make mistakes. When interacting with anyone, at a level of intensity and intimacy, that Daniel is striving to excel and explore in his given new School of Libran practicality we should not hold ourselves to overly high standards. we are all bound to make stupid mistakes but that is the nature of humanity and cooperation. Let’s give Daniel a hand for exploring these qualities with such dedication, but bare with him when he unintentionally falters.
Now with as much Humility and courtesy I can successfully lasso in my own personal and spiritual pursuits, let’s explore my own Ascendant and New School and Job. I have a Gemini rising, but whether or not Daniel values the location or position of my Sun, with humility and a willingness to learn and explore myself, my Sun, the fuel for all my endeavors is also in Gemini. According to Daniel, We Geminis are a horse of a different color, without successful interactions with our weird archtypal types, Daniel may appear to be somewhat lacking in how he teaches and works with the Geminian archetype. NEWS BROADCASTS: GEMINIS ARE TRULY PRETTY WEIRD AND THEY MIGHT APPEAR TO VIBRATE ON A DIFFERENT LEVEL THAN MOST HUMANS. We really are made up of crazy wisdom, many of us have found ourselves to be contradictors. We are the clowns of the zodiac who are there to lighten the seriousness of stress-related issues. We are there to break the ice, to show you how foolish your ideas might be at any given moment. We are the genies in the bottle, who may hide there for milleniums before it is time to once again show how unserious our world is. Our focus is on illuminating the cosmic joke of existence. We are ruled by the nature of the analytic mind, and its forms of communication. we are the entire spectrum of logical and mental interconnectedness. We form the magical connection to the divine muse. We explore the realities behind rationality. Our focus is go beyond linear processes with a focus and knowing and fulfilling the Law, and then to go beyond it to a place of total freedom. we seek to fully know that the laws of nature do not affect them. we are truly free of rules. the current life intent for Gemini is about exploring creative self-expression as it relates to serving spiritual awareness. Our training is about learning how to be the trickster and doing what is least expected of them inj subtle ways that do not provoke confrontation but rather expand awareness about how the divine is operating. We are like the Fool archetype at the edge of the precipice ready to take a step off the cliff with the hope and expectation that matter will mysteriously appear or disappear in service to their radical natures. A powerful image that is reflective of us, is when Indiana Jones, is forced to undergo those severe potentially fatal test in search of the Holy Grail. In one scene near the end of the movie Indiana Jones, and the last Crusade; Sean Connery, Harrison Ford’s hermit father on the sacred quest of the Knight templars in search of the Holy Grail, has been shot, and the only way to save him is for Indiana Jones to undergo and succeed in passing the tests to reach the great eternal Knight who is now destined to serve as Guardian of the Sacred Grail, until someone comes to replace him so that he may forego his responsibilities of protecting the Sacred Grail an at last die and be taken on to heaven. Indie must get a gulp of the Miraculuous Healing Water of Life in the sacred goblet of Christ, to save his dad who will most definitely die from the gunshot wound inflicted upon him to force Indie to undergo the final trials in the Caves of the Holy Grail. One of the test Indie must undergo and survive is to cross a precipice in order to reach the chamber where the sacred waters are kept in the everlasting fountain of life. Indi has no clue that there is a walkway from his side of the precipice to the chamber. Indie decides to think outside of the box, and throws sand across the precipice to recognize, that the rainbow cave colors have concealed the walkway to cross the precipice with such precision of Light and stone to create an illusion that there is no way to cross and Indie would be forced to let his father pass after being shot in cold blood by his captors as well as be executed himself should he fail to retrieve the Holy Grail with Holy Healing waters.
Gemini is the contrary archetype of modern native american spiritual teachings. Believe Geminis really do have a lot of this kind of crazy wisdom nature, and need to be honored for their abilities, even though we might appear to be disruptive or distracting in a workshop like Daniel has offered for many years. I can see these patterns in my behavior and interactions with others, but I will always try and find a common ground to philosophize and support a group climate of open communication that might not always comfortable in similar group interactions which Daniel seems to be particularly resistant towards when he is offering his workshop. My intentions are never meant to cause disorder, or discomfort. In fact most of my efforts in workshops in the context of learning and getting valuable information with people like Daniel are never meant to undermine authority or disrupt the flow of information. In the case of Daniel’s teachings, I think much of what may have occurred for him from me, is primarily self-induced unconscious projections towards someone without cause or ill but I am also aware that my nature as a Gemini is not easy for many, but it is only a few times when I have felt unwelcome or disruptive around authority figures like Daniel in extremely intense workshops like those I have experienced with Daniel, and SAMS.
That is a simple metaphor in describing Geminian nature according to Daniel.

Hi all, I am glad there is so much interest in this site. I wanted to offer prayers, love, and thanksgiving to the world this special evening. We are all on the verge of a new reality!! Are you feeling it? I know I am. Of course I also have to say that I am also probably at the last connection of my natal Chiron to its natal position for these past couple of weeks. So much is happening in our ever changing world. The power of the internet is active and present today, and will be forever. I can’t say that I am total agreement with all that is happening in the world today, and yesterday. My life has been full of ups and downs. I am sorry I have not responded or posted recently. We live in a difficult world, yet I still believe we have something to hope for. As you celebrate this upcoming holiday season, try to take it to heart how much your loved ones mean to you. This holiday season is as powerful for more powerful than those we have dealt with and worked through in the recent past. Tonite, I want to touch on two important topics that come to my mind and heart.
As a practicing shamanic explorer, my heart-mind goes out to those who have lost loved ones in these most recent local and international gun-involved shootings. It makes me sad to see our great evolving species to allow these meaningless and unnecessary shootings to still continue.
My life and studies have focused on how great our species homo sapien sapien is truly. As we come into this worldwide dark time of the year, let your hearts go out to those you love and care for and your fellow men, women, and asexual transvestite beings we share our species and planet with. I had a wonderful time watching a precorded musical production of the Rocky Horror Picture show in London this last weekend. Even though I felt extremely down about the injustices that are still happening in our modern world. WE HUMANS KNOW HOW TO COLLUDE DON’T WE!!. We continue to allow injustices to continue, but let’s bring love back into our lives. Whether you are gay, lesbian, male, female, heterosexual or a transvestite, love is present more so today than it has probably ever been in the recent history of our species. I think we are beginning to recognize and adore the beauty that exists in our social frameworks at the most deepest and subtle levels of existence, awareness, and consciousness of our everyday experiences.
How do you want 2016 to look like? Have you ever thought about that? At the most subtle levels of our humanity,our emotions, feelings, and activities, we continue to promote or not promote, a message that “something wonderful is happening” or the opposite we will destroy ourselves?
Does anyone remember watching the movie in the theatres in the early eighties called 2010, Odyssey Two? You may all remember if your were alive the movie, “2001, a Space Odyssey” , but do you remember the sequel to 2001? Anything about the plot?
I am going to see if I can find some video service that has the original version of “2010, Odyssey Two” still available for viewing. But the reason why I brought this up was, because of a line that was near the end of the film, in which all the earth’s global communications networks, on the planet or in outer space our space satellites picked up a mysterious transmission from Jupiter’s moon IO. No one on earth or in space could block the transmission signal in the movie. You had to read or hear it wherever you or your brothers, sisters, or astronauts were picking up the signal. No scramblers were able to block the transmission signal in the movie.
Can any of you remember what the signal transmission was from Jupiter’s Moon IO in that movie 2010, Odyssey Two, what it read? It came as a kind of a text message from Jupiter and IO that could not be blocked by any jamming frequencies or jamming machines worldwide.
Another subplot that was also happening in the movie was a worldwide upheaval, with all the 7 Nuclear Powers of the world inches from getting involved in the most tragic Nuclear War Scenario which no human would survive, due to shortage of resources, land battles, and political turmoil around the world. Does that sound familiar as a comparison to what we are hearing in the news regularly generally at the FOX and CNN world television networks. when we turn on the 11:00 pm News wherever you are in the world? We watch and hear about another school shooting, or an attack by ISIS, or the media attempts to scare us with yet another negative story that Iran has found a way to press the button and start World War III. Or that some superpower around the world has decided that it needs more land, in which imperialism is rampant around the world? Or another security breech has been detected at a well-used corporate or non-profit or utilities internet site and another person has had their identity partially stolen by yet another ill-fated hacker, scam artist, or conman or conwoman.
There is reality and truth in these privacy stealing attacks, but if you have an intermediate to advanced working knowledge of how to protect your information on the world wide web, these kinds of problems are becoming less and less worrisome, because your credit card owner, or bank, had inbuilt security encryption to prevent too much of your personal data from being stolen, and their are harder and harder firewalls to break if you work with the right creditors, and unique softwares or pc products but everyone will at some point get hit with some hacker or computer virus that recks your operating system or steals your personal private data. But is this all that matters for you and your loved ones, whether some freako is going to steal your data? For some maybe, for others, it really doesn’t matter, because how much can an identity hacker really get from you, when you’re making 50 to 60000 $ or more annually or your in the top 20 percent of the richest people in the world? But for some of us less rich people, an identity attack can really hurt, right? But what is money? Or should I say what it money to you, or you, or you over there?
How do you as an individual think about money? Are you conservative? Are you Spiritual, and money is just another form of energy with no other substance than that? In the United States, our money and finances are being controlled by a select few, a privately owned organization called the Federal Reserve Board, a private group of the richest and most powerful people in the world who have no responsibility to anybody, except their rich counterparts shareholders with individual members such as the Koch Brothers, and other obscure hidden persons at the very top of our financial pyramid with almost complete control of the global economy and security tapped internet from Big Brother, “the Illuminati”, a greedy, evil, and dark wordwide clandestine organization that only want more and more Power Over You and All Of Humanity to serve its own purposes of utter and complete control of every mechanized process on Earth and thus over you. The Illuminati is presumed to know exactly how humans should live, die, and be controlled, that we are too dumb, (human, and emotional) to have any personal self-control or will over our destinies, that free will is just a myth to make us believe and think we have power over our lives, and species, that there never has or never will be any time in human evolution when we can control our destinies, and that this greater race of beings will keep us in line to do their ultimate will. The belief is that our brains are too underdeveloped to have this kind of power and responsibility over our individual and species greater destinies.Notice how self-absorbed Donald Trump is in any of his personal public appearances, we are too unintelligent to be given any power over our destinies and that is why we should vote for him, because he is the only one who can save our degrading culture and/or society. It would not surprise me if Donald Trump is a member of that anonymous board. If he and others like him is on the board, he and any others like him are not required to be held accountable by anyone or any government, essentially in terms of financial obligations; he and his counterparts are above Federal, State, and Local Regulations and laws. Does that sound like a stupid reality? I wonder if some of our United States Supreme Court officials are members of the United States Federal Reserve Board? Whether they are or are not, do you think they will vote in favor of or against more financial corporate regulatory services, should this case come to their court or not? I would imagine that they probably don’t really give a dam about our broken economical system, as long as they can continue to get their upper cut off the top.
Check out this link: the data is probably fairly accurate as of 2009, the U.S. Supreme Court Justices annual salaries are between 225000 and 245000, just a small drop in the bucket. If they saved all their money over the course of the last 7 years, today they would be multimillionaires, but if they are also members of our United States Federal Reserve Board their identities are most likely not accessible to the public, because of the extreme secretiveness of who is or who was a member of the U.S. Federal Reserve Board.
But I bring this up to get us all thinking about what money truly means to us? Does it mean something different to someone like a Supreme Court Justice, than it does to you or your loved ones? How does the His Master, the Holy Dalai Llama experience money? Or someone like great scientific/philosophical mystic Ken Wilber, or the Pope? What about your spiritual teache or Guru? How does he or she feel about money? What about the Archbishop of New York, or the Deacon or Minister of your Church Congregation? How we experience money is essentially a mystery solely based on our individual states of minds. Money to me has always been a tender and tough issue. Am I wrong to have this attitude towards money?
For the members of the US Federal Reserve Board, money is probably more or less a means to an end. After our government abolished the Gold Standard, money became a symbol of status, and when you run out, in the case of the Federal Reserve Board you just make some more. It’s as easy as that. So who chooses who has it or doesn’t have it or who is supposed to have it or not have it is solely determined by those Federal Reserve Members of the Board? Money has become nothing more than a piece of paper we use to purchase things, there is nothing backing up the substance of money, yet money has for many a whole lot of substance, they live their lives around how to make or take more. And depending on where they get or make their money someone they are working with has to deal with less of it so they can feel like they have more, the value of it, becomes a means to an end, and encourages scarcity, and lack of resources.
Great people have killed themselves on account of a lack of funds?
For others, money is a form of energy exchange? Is that you? Or is money something you need more and more of. Would you kill yourself if you lost everything on the whim of one of those other people who only care about having more and more of it? Great people have. I don’t know how I perceive the concept of money. Some days, I see it as something I can’t live without, and other days, it can take on for me merely the form of an exchange of energy. But that all changes when I go to the store and am forced to pay, outrageous prices for good healthy nutritional foods, or suffer the consequences of buying the cheaper of products; the apple, orange or salad that has essentially no nutritional value because of the extreme pesticides used to produce a pretty piece of fruit or vegetable, the only saving grace of which is the psychological feeling that I believe it tastes better, or looks better than the more expensive organic piece of the same fruit, but I have just wasted my hard earned energy on a fantasy, or fake idea,with energy I spent hours and hours earning in a deadbeat job with no evident chance of challenges, personal value or promotion so I can buy nutritionally dead pieces of fruit.
No wonder Diabetes is rampant in our modern world along with excessive obesity, and Cancer has become one of the greatest killers of healthy people due maybe in part to the toxic substances agribusiness has used to produce the pretty nutritionless fruit I was forced to buy to survive, and live, because I hadn’t stored enough financial energy to afford anything better.
Anyway, if you dig deeper into the faults of our human society, you might begin to see how many of us, would rather get locked into a neverending negative self-fulfilling prophecy encouraged by those who have the ability to create, and make energy a scarce resource in order to fill their own pockets with so much more than they really need,or the “needs” of their corporate pundit counterparts, and their offspring provided they have not poisoned themselves with the consumption of toxic foodst, contributing to greater sexual reproductive sterility and making it harder and harder for them to spread and share their genetic codes because they are unable to get sexually excited to have an ejaculation to produce with the ovum a new life, or if they are still able to have an ejaculation and their wives are still able to produce healthy ovum cells for sexual production to occur, the sperm or ovum they may have produced ends up sterile. Male sterility has become a severe problem in our world today.
According to an article I found on the internet at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4424520/ published online in 2015 through the U.S. National Library of Medicine:
Male infertility is a global population health concern. There are an estimated 48·5 million couples with infertility worldwide . In the current study, we calculated rates of male infertility across the globe based on a review of the current literature (Figure 2). Since we do not know the actual rates of infertility, most of the numbers shown are based on self-report, thus cover a wide range. Overall, by examining the available literature and consolidating the information, our data indicates that global rates of male infertility range from 2.5% to 12%.
According to the Population Reference Bureau, posted online in 2012;
(July 2012) In the United States and other developed countries, fertility tends to drop during periods of economic decline. U.S. fertility rates fell to low levels during the Great Depression (1930s), around the time of the 1970s “oil shock,” and since the onset of the recent recession in 2007 (see Figure 1). The U.S. total fertility rate (TFR) stood at 2.0 births per woman in 2009, but preliminary data from the National Center for Health Statistics show that the TFR dropped to 1.9 in 2010—well below the replacement level of 2.1.1 A similar decline—or leveling off—of fertility rates has been reported in Ireland, Italy, Spain, Sweden, and several other European countries.
The U.S. Fertility Rate Has Fallen During Periods of Economic Decline
* Estimated by PRB.
Why has there been so much infertility over the course of the last century?
This last century has been one of the most powerful shifts in our world culture since the birth of Christ, or the Black Plague.
There have been many factors in the development that may have a direct effect on our health that have happened to our species over the course of the last 100 to 150 years in our post-modern technological era here on planet earth.
One factor is the increasing number of Diabetes Diagnoses no matter what type of Diabetes has been diagnosed.
A recent 2010 Study, argues the possibility that environmental factors may have contributed significantly to higher rates of Diabetes diagnoses.
Here is the link the this 2010 study.
The section that caught my eye was in paragraph 3 of this study and hypotheses.
Dr. Duk-Hee Lee and I have written a hypothesis proposing that exposure to environmental chemicals can influence the development of type 1 diabetes development. We focused on endocrine disrupting compounds and their ability to influence the immune system, as well as other factors associated with type 1 diabetes (Howard and Lee 2012). We built on the work of other authors. Holladay (1999) proposed that prenatal exposure to compounds toxic to the developing immune system, including many environmental chemicals, may play a role in postnatal autoimmune disease, although he did not address type 1 diabetes in particular. Longnecker and Daniels (2001) proposed that environmental chemicals may be associated with type 1 (and type 2) diabetes. Their review of epidemiological literature (not animal studies) found limited evidence however, and for type 1 focused on nitrate/nitrite and PCBs. Carpenter (2008) more recently proposed that persistent organic pollutants may be risk factors for developing both types of diabetes, and reviewed evidence from both human and animal studies, suggesting further study. This webpage focuses primarily on this hypothesis, since the role of chemicals in the development of diabetes has been neglected (Jones et al. 2008).
I would not say that, mostly the effort is about attracting new visitors. WordPress, has a number of really useful share tools, once you buy a domain to use. WordPress seems very user-friendly to me. I would highly encourage setting up a google analytics account. Google if you can show enough interest and unique ideas, is a great way to get your name and site on the top of the google search engine, when someone is doing a general search for you or your site. One of the most valuable tools is to use the meta tag functions of wordpress, Meta tag, and other tag functions of the wordpress application is basically a built in, keyword topic search publisher. Using keywords and google analytics with every post you make are going to be one of the most valuable things you can do to attract subscribers. When you are ready to post a comment or a blog feed, at the end of your post after you have made any major corrections before actually publishing the post, think about what you have just written in terms of key words in the content and substance of your post, then write those key words on the bottom of the publish function, and publish your post. Here is an example: in this post, I and focused on keywords, content, google analyticsm, wordpress, attracting subscribers, etc. I am going to input the keyword I just mentioned in this post, and then publish the comment.
pulling up old posts and reblogging them because they might not be accessible after so many shifts between different wordpress programs.
captured this post from my recent blog site. hope you enjoy it.
Dear friends, and subscribers of my blog.
I realize that my meanderings in discussing the honoring ceremony we shared together of Master Vivi, using the Reiki Bowl and Fire Ceremony, that I may have lost track of the importance and value of keeping my post focused on our celebrations of her amazing life. The late Reiki Master Vivi was a close and loving friend. I always enjoyed being at her Reiki Share groups. I welcome Maureen’s leadership last Saturday evening. At the deeper level of community we are all leaders in our own right with gifts, skills, strengths, and abilities we have been taught, and gifted by Wakan Tanka to fulfill our part of the Great Mysteries of this world called Life. Wankan tanka; when you listen for her, will guide and direct your souls’ to their ultimate fulfillment in the dense reality of this 4d holographic Universe we all share in our Hearts, Minds, and Souls.
Native American/Indigenous philosophy does not recognize in the same way our Modern Western Cultural Civilization does. When you speak the language of our indigenous Ancestors here on the West Coast of the United States in the Pacific Northwest, the literal translation and meaning of Heart is not differentiated from the literal translation and meaning of Mind/or Brain. The term Mind doesn’t really exist in the same way we have often been taught. Heart and Mind essentially carry the same meaning. When Grandfather Roy Wilson discussed the literal translation of heart or mind when he offered his chinook Wawa language courses at the Center for the Chinook Indians reservation here in Western Washington near Castle Rock, WA, he told us, that there is no Chinook Wawa word for heart or for mind but rather, the word used combined these two concepts and has the literal meaning of heart-mind. The Chinook word is Tum Tum. The literal English translation is heart-mind.
When I think of Master Vivi, I feel her deep reverberating Tum Tum speaking to me. When I performed Reiki Healing on Master Vivi’s body while she was still present in embodied form, I felt a great light that shone forth, blazing and lighting up the whole room. Her presence was like that. It is like being engulfed in a bright shining sphere of Pure Energy and Light that expanded outwards 20 or more feet from her Tum Tum.
Like Master Vivi, many shamanic teachers and guides came and guided our friend Melody in the direction she needed to go at Portland Adventist Hospital this evening. Again, with loving cousin Maureen, we celebrated this shining beacon of light of Melody Lewandowski. It was a powerful experience. Thanks Maureen, and Pearl Pierce and all the others friends, and spirit and animal guides that made an appearance. I know our gifts were received for they came from our own Tum Tum’s.
I received a call from a dear friend of Melody Lewandowski. She really needs our blessings, love, and concern: Melody we are here. Let the spirits guide and direct you. I call now on your guides and helpful spirits to guide and direct you to the place you need to go. Melody you are in our hearts. May your spirit guides come and assist you? You are loved. My intention is that you receive this wherever you are in your heart mind or soul. If this is your time to go, may your transition be smooth? There are still loved ones who are not ready yet for you to go.
All that no melody she is in Portland Adventist in critical condition you need support by our friends and family please cannot call go see bring flowers please he needs the support this is her brother Raymond. I am unable to send music at this time. But soon, I will. Please guide Melody to the place of her and all her friends highest good in this difficult time. Aum, Peace, Amen. A Ho Matakiyuzen. Wankan Tanka, she calls on your blessings.
My dear loved ones,
Today, I had the fortunate gift of being able to honor a great Reiki Master in a local Portland OR/Vancouver WA Reiki Share group, with some dear and close friends which included Maureen Browning, Reiki Master/Teacher at Clark Community College, Sheena Browning/ Crystal certified teacher/ and daughter of Maureen Browning and 10 other individuals of like mind.
I hope Maureen, that you don’t feel bad about me sharing your beautiful name of Graceful Dear. Your energy lit up and guided this honoring ceremony of the famous and well-known Reiki Master Vivi who used to teach at Clark Community College Reiki coursework. Dear Master Vivi passed away recently at the ripe age of 73 I think. Many of her previous students were present as we celebrated her life with an honoring Reiki Fire Ceremony. Also in attendance were Knowing Woman, Jo Garceau, Author, Knowing woman, the Journey to the Feminine Soul, Sara Posey, expert Horse trainer, and Horse Reiki Master, Pat Wilson, Owner of Koya Designs a foremost manufacturer of Herbal remedy infusions. Other’s present at the ceremony were Steve Bergman, long-time employee of Kaiser Permanente, Linda and her Sister, and a few other students of Reiki Teacher/Master Vivi. Another person of note in attendance Moxie, a Home caregiver. My dear friend Maureen aided us in the group to explore and feel the divine energy and guidance of this late Reiki Master Vivi.
I did not know what to expect when I decided to attend this event. I was pressured by Sara and others to attend. Maureen this last year is starting a new business called. Three Mirrors Body Mind and Spirit. Maureen is the granddaughter of my grandmother’s Sister. My Maternal Grandmother was Mary E. Kies Mills. Maureen’s Grandmother was Elvira Kies Laplante Isenbek who also passed this last year; the sister of Mary E. Kies Mills. These great wise grandmothers were strong in my life. Maureen used to be the former Administrative Coordinator for Ravenhouse Healing Center in Castle Rock, WA and studied with Grandfather Roy Rachon Wilson, Honorary Spiritual Leader, and Chief of the Cowlitz Indians here in Western Washington State with her former partner Kyle Ward, who together started Ravenhouse Healing Center.
As the stations of life change, and the powers that be come forth in this the 15th year of the New Millennium, I began to wonder where this world is headed. With the shifting of political power happening at the Federal Level of my homeland, the “home of the brave” the United States of America, and the shifting dynamics of the stock market in these tumultuous times of transformation and revelation, it is clear now that changes are abound.
Every human is being given a new set of rules to follow, and as this new paradigm begins to take form, what will happen can only be determined by trusting in the Universal energies present. In the last five years, our solar system has been getting closer and closer aligned to Galactic Center, the Black Hole Center of our Milky Way Galaxy. The last time we were so closely aligned to the Center of our Galaxy was almost 26 millennium ago. Yes, I believe we are at the first phase of the beginning of the turning of the ages as described by mentor, my former astrological teacher and friend Daniel Giamario, founder and creative inspiration of Shamanic Astrology Mystery School.
We are so far now into the energies and dynamics of the “Aquarian Age” according to the soothsayers of the last 2 millennium, with the fear and change of the Book of Revelations rapidly approaching from our precious Christian bible and the many other sources of written work regarding this turning of the ages. We can only hope to find a precious place of rest and relaxation without fear as the dynamics of this new age begin to emerge in these tumultuous times of what I believe as our human evolution. As the world changed on 9/11/2001 a contributing factor for President George W. Bush unilateral decision to initiate without cause the second war on Iraq and Afghanistan resulting in upwards of three to four thousand American Soldiers lost on a spiritual crusade solely based on imaginary Weapons of Mass Destruction(WMD’s) created by the Bush Presidential Administration I began to wonder who is truly in charge yet we the other 99 % of human population slowly and slowly giving away more and more of our personal power to the ruling class of the 1 % of world population who do not have their brothers and sisters of the human race best interests at heart I wonder what is to follow with this human species experiment of godlike proportions.
After so many priceless lives were lost in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the onslaught of the worst stock market crash since the depression crash in 1929, resulting from the modern Bush Administration Financial policies in 2008 humanity is changing. Potentially caused by irresponsible loose and unregulated loan policies of our own U.S. Federal Reserve Board, world banks were given unprecedented authority to process high risk consumer home loans for families and individuals who should have never been eligible based on credit risk to receive these unregulated house mortgage loans, the U.S. Economy fill out from under us.
Are we ready for more of these challenges? It is important to evaluate the changes of western civilization over the course of the last 50 years of my lifetime, with regards to Social and Racial Reform, Women’s suffrage, Blacks getting the right to vote, primary and secondary education schools becoming racially integrated, multiple assassinations throughout the crises of the sixties and early seventies, and the development of Affirmative Action Policies. These new social policies are now present in almost every state of the Union, and wiith the passage of laws by the U.S. Supreme court and other courts accepting Same-Sex Marriage, we welcome as a species new approaches to relationship and bonding. Sexual preference is no longer a factor in determining whether two individuals in Love should be legally married. We also had to deal with the depth and struggles of the AIDS epidemic worldwide. The fact of the matter is that change is unavoidable.
This is what I believe results from such a paradigmatic shift of consciousness, in the Evolution of our Species. I welcome the new Humanity, for I am one of them. Instead of calling ourselves homo sapiens sapiens, maybe it is time to accept our deeper genetic DNA evolutionary step and call ourselves, homo universalis. Simply, Homo Universalis is defined as: “A man who has broad intellectual interests and is accomplished in areas of both the arts and the sciences” found at http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Homo+universalis This is a citation from the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language 5th ed. copyright 2011. The language used in this definition is clearly bias, so I would offer a change and use the world Human in place of man. Man is generally the common name of our species, but as all of my readers know we are actually of the genome Homo sapiens sapiens. Always keep that in mind when reading my posts.
Because language as a whole is so tricky, and because of the vast usage of the English language, I think it is also important to make some serious changes in how we use our language. Changes are beginning but we still have a long way to go for language and communication reform. We need to find ways to use language without all the references to sex that is present today when we communicate. Language needs to become sexless in its use, or non-gender based.
Since I am on the subject of gender, it is also important to recognize that at the biological level of the origins of our species in the womb; at conception we are essentially female. Many of you have studied the steps of sexual reproduction. At the cellular level when spermatozoa penetrates the membranes of the ovum, from conception until our emergence out of the womb, a biological process called, meiosis occurs. All humans emerge from an undifferentiated zygote or what we call the female ovum. The Y chromosome in the male spermatozoon carries a single gene (SRY) which contributes to XY Sex Determination System in the process of meiosis or sexual reproduction according to this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XY_sex-determination_system.
In terms of brain physiology, there are several studies that have been considered. Please review the studies that best suit your needs. The study I felt most applicable in this discussion is located at this link: http://www.webmd.com/balance/features/how-male-female-brains-differ?page=3 I want to emphasize the significance of the last couple paragraphs of this article regarding brain physiology differences between male and female brains.
Recent studies that highlight sex-associated brain differences may lead us to believe that men and women have little in common upstairs. That’s not the case. “Men and women do have lots of brain areas that are the same,” Geary tells WebMD. Moreover, members of both sexes excel at skills that are commonly labeled gender specific. “All of these things have overlapping distributions. There are many women with better-than-average spatial skills, and men with good writing skills,” Geary says.
Others believe brain variations between sexes are for the best. “Most of these differences are complementary. They increase the chances of males and females joining together. It helps the whole species,” Gur says.
A little concerned about this new editor. So I am testing that the new WordPress editor is functional. Miss being able to see my front page and dashboard. Dear WordPress technical teams: How through this posting editor format am I able to see my blog as it appears online?
Greg Garceau, Admin, Journeytoyourself.com
It is comforting to read your responses to my blog posts. Today is Saturday , 13 September 2014. Much has happened in the last couple of years of this developing blog. I am sitting in my living room, looking out the porch sliding door to the night sky of mid September. New things are always happening. Change is inevitable!! Although many of us may hate the thought of change, it is unavoidable. I am not sure if my subscribers are up to date with what is happening in the world these days in America. I say America! not as a reference to the United States of America but to all those seekers and journeyers that sought a new life when they crossed the great Atlantic Ocean almost 500 years ago. When we think of America, it is easy to get stuck in the idea that the spiritual metaphor of America is primarily a U.S. historical or cultural interpretation. Columbus was here in 1492, that is 622 years ago. But Columbus did not land in America as people might presume. Interesting that the story of this intrepid explorer would come in my mental meanderings on this 13th day of September almost 650 years after Columbus presumed discovery of America.
This history of North America/South America actually predates the western understanding as called by the indigenous peoples of these united continents as termed the metaphorical “Turtle Island” ;
The Washington Post offered an interesting article by Valerie Strauss on Columbus Day 2013. Now that it has almost been a year we are now approaching another Columbus Day for 2014.
Here is the link to that article. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/answer-sheet/wp/2013/10/14/christopher-columbus-3-things-you-think-he-did-that-he-didnt/
Strauss (2014) comments,
“So you think that Christopher Columbus discovered America in the Niña, the Pinta and the Santa Maria and also, while he was at it, proved the Earth wasn’t flat?
Wrong, wrong and wrong. Given that the European explorer has a U.S. federal holiday to his name — and is honored by holidays in other countries as well — let’s look at the disturbing truth about the fearless but brutal Columbus.” She later explains:
“And here’s something he did do that you may not know:
* Columbus was a brutal viceroy and governor of the Caribbean islands on which he did land.
He committed atrocities against native peoples on the islands and decimated their populations while he also terrorized Spanish colonists, according to the biography “Columbus” by Laurence Bergreen.
Why do we celebrate Columbus Day?
The first Columbus Day celebration recorded in the United States was in New York on October 12th, 1792, held to honor Italian-American heritage. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1937 proclaimed October 12th to be Columbus Day, a national holiday. In 1971, the holiday date was changed to the second Monday in October.”
The verbal by mouth history of “Turtle Island” is referenced somewhat in this valuable creation story of indigenous people regarding North/South American continents.
Here is an original creative story of Turtle Island by the indigenous peoples of America.
The Creation Story – Turtle Island
For the Ojibway/Anishinabe people, the legend is as follows. Long ago, after the Great
Mystery, or Kitchi-Manitou, first peopled the
earth, the Anishinabe, or Original People,
strayed from their harmonious ways and began to argue and fight with one another.
Brother turned against brother and soon the Anishinabe were killing one another over
hunting grounds and others disagreements. Seeing that harmony, brotherhood, sisterhood,
and respect for all living things no longer prevailed on Earth, Kitchi-Manitou decided to
purify the Earth. He did this with water.
The water came in the form of a great flood, or mush-ko’-be-wun’, upon the Earth
destroying the Anishinabe people and most of the animals as well. Only Nanaboozhoo,
the central figure in many of the Anishinabe oral traditions, was able to survive the flood,
along with a few animals and birds who managed to swim and fly. Nanaboozhoo floated
on a huge log searching for land, but none was to be found as the Earth was now covered
by the great flood. Nanaboozhoo allowed the remaining animals and birds to take turns
resting on the log as well. Finally, Nanaboozhoo spoke.
“I am going to do something,” he said. “I am going to swim to the bottom of this water
and grab a handful of earth. With this small bit of Earth, I believe we can create a new
land for us to live on with the help of the Four Winds and Kitchi-Manitou.”
So Nanaboozhoo dived into the water and was gone for a long time. Finally he surfaced,
and short of breath told the animals that the water is too deep for him to swim to the
bottom. All were silent. Finally, Mahng, the Loon spoke up. “I can dive under the water
for a long way, that is how I catch my food. I will try to make it to the bottom and return
with some Earth in my beak.” to read on, refer to the pdf document where I retrieved this fascinating story.
at this link:
Geologically speaking: The flood referenced here may be directly related to the Great Flood referenced in the Bible, but also, geologically speaking, may be referenced to the time of a
great flood about the time of the last glacial meltdown of most the Northern Hemisphere. Here is that story based on geological evidence gathered over time by
This story is found at http://www.montananaturalist.org/ Pardee, a well-renowned Geologist worked for the USGS (U.S. Geological Survey in 1910 over a century ago.
Lake Missoula is discussed further in this article posted by the State of Montana.
In the most recent advance, glaciers reached their maximum extent 15,000 years ago and had almost completely melted by 10,000 years ago. It was during this glacial advance that a finger from the glacial ice sheet moved south through the Purcell Trench in northern Idaho, near present day Lake Pend Oreille, damming the Clark Fork River creating Glacial Lake Missoula.
The water began to build up behind the 2,500-foot ice dam filled the valleys to the east with water, creating a glacial lake the size of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario combined. The water continued to rise until it reached its maximum height at an elevation of 4,200 feet. As the water rose, the pressure against the ice dam increased, ultimately, causing the dam to fail catastrophically. The failure occurred when the water reached a depth of 2000 feet. The water pressure caused the glacier to become buoyant, and water began to escape beneath the ice dam by carving sub-glacial tunnels at an exponential rate.
It is estimated that the maximum rate of flow was equal to 9.46 cubic miles per hour (386 million cubic feet per second). This rate is 60 times the flow of the Amazon River, the largest river in the world today. At this rate, the lake probably drained in a few days to a week. Water moving at speeds between 30 and 50 miles per hour raced across eastern Washington.
The floodwaters from Glacial Lake Missoula moved through eastern Washington on a 430-mile journey to the Pacific Ocean, forever changing the landscape by stripping away topsoil, and picking apart the bedrock. The floodwater carved an immense channel system across eastern Washington. In 1928, geologist J. Harlen Bretz poetically described the scene: “No one with an eye for land forms can cross eastern Washington in daylight without encountering and being impressed by the ‘scabland.’
This of course is the West Coast U.S. perspective had any human or indigenous person lived at that time, nearly 10000 years ago. I am sure if others were interested in researching they would find similar U.S.G.S. related theories in the prehistorical geological analysis of New York State, and provinces of Quebec and Newfoundland in Canada. Clearly with this kind of glacial meltdown, it is probable that the Northeastern Hudson River is a remnant of this massive flood 10 millennia ago in the Northeastern Seaboard.
There is even talk that “Turtle Island” may have been discovered by the Asian fleets of China as long as 650 or more years ago. For more information, do a general search with “Chinese Armada Zheng He”. Whoever discovered America is essentially irrelevant because America’s history predates modern colonization.
As we begin to accept, integrate and reconnect with our indigenous brothers and sisters of America, it is important to approach the whole topic of America as inclusive of South/North America. So when I speak from the cultural point of view as an American, I speak to all the people that today live together on this fantastic continent of North/South America. As we began to integrate our cultural heritages as a United America of North, South, and Central America, we will require new terms for defining our interconnectedness with our culturally diverse brothers and sisters of Mexico, Central America, and into Venezuela, Brazil, Peruvian, Colombian, and Chilean neighbors to the South.
I want to end this reflection with a comment shared with me by the indigenous peoples of America. So the major message of this post is to remember our interconnectedness with all life and people on planet earth. And in the case of this prophecy, I offer a message of group cooperation and understanding and hope that I may help invite and invoke the power of this unity prophecy of all American peoples, indigenous, and western European.
America can be a shared philosophy. ( as the Unity of South/North America) for this is the land of opportunity, perhaps the promised land of our religious and spiritual predecessors. Maybe it is time to do an American online Conference to invoke and invite the spirits of the Andean Condor and Bald Eagle perhaps a peace meditation and prayer
Please understand that by invoking these united powers, the sovereignty and cultural freedoms of this group of 24 sovereign nations should not be discarded, for it is in the expression of personal freedom and sovereignty for all nations that we will emerge into the promised land as prophesized to become the Aquarian Age of Evolutionary Humanity. Here is the indigenous prophecy of the Unity of the Andean Condor and Bald Eagle high Spirit Guides of Wankan Tanka.
Join me in celebrating the underlying and essential Unity of all humankind. As the prophecy says, the time is now. Let us breathe in through shamanic journeying, our imagination, and visualization, this new world view of sovereignty for all people in celebration of our love for each other. Let’s make Columbus day a celebration of human unity. I wish to invoke also the power of our Great Mother and Protector, Our Lady of Guadalupe to instill the peace, joy, and wisdom that will be necessary in these upcoming challenges of survival, free speech, as we prepare for the portal to open up into this new age of wisdom and hope. Can we make this an international day of invocation and spiritual understanding and truth.
Here is a link to a recording I made of this prophecy. http://youtu.be/fbfgyeSoPrc
Inca Prophecy OF THE EAGLE AND CONDOR
“We have been waiting five hundred years. The Inca prophecies say that now, in this age, when the eagle of the North and the condor of the South fly together, the Earth will awaken. The eagles of the North cannot be free without the condors of the South.
Now it’s happening. Now is the time. The Aquarian Age is an era of light, an age of awakening, an age of returning to natural ways. Our generation is here to help begin this age, to prepare through different schools to understand the message of the heart, intuition, and nature. Native people speak with the Earth. When consciousness awakens, we can fly high like the eagle, or like the condor…
Ultimately, you know, we are all native, because the word native comes from nature, and we are all parts of Mother nature. She is inside us, and we are inside her. We depend totally on the Earth, the Sun, and the Water. We belong to the evolution of nature in our physical bodies. But we also have a spiritual body that comes from the Sun, not the Sun you can see with two eyes, but another Sun that lies in another dimension, a golden Sun burning with the fire of spiritual light. The inner light of humans emanates from this spiritual source. We came to Earth from this Sun to have experiences on Earth, and eventually we will return to this Sun. We are Children of the Sun.”
