Update-Wed-2017-03-08 – “The Temple” is Restored!

TEMPLE OF THE ANCIENT DRAGONS (here) Has finally been nearly-fully restored.


After a very long time being down,

I can now confidently say: “WE ARE BAAAACK!”

I will also have some new writings to add very shortly, in keeping with the mission of “The Temple”. There will still be some work in restoring this website’s prominence in the search-engine “searchability” area, but not to worry.

I have also noticed a few folks (or, maybe just one) have had a feeding frenzy of “business” while I (or “we”) were away. GOOD! They can thank me for the great SEO results that “I” made possible, without hiring any professional SEO-Consultant, they themselves are enjoying (for not much longer)! We do NOT do any of the “Blackhat”-SEO garbage that some have tried to use my website for. We put out genuine, creative writings and content that may be of special interest to those who are genuinely curious.

So,

Be looking forward to MORE of the quality writings and critiques to come.

“The Temple” – on-line, is almost back to full operation!

After nearly a year,

Temple of The Ancient Dragons is soon to be in “full-swing”, once again. After much development, and fine-tuning of various settings, methods, and other technical improvements: The on-line “Dragon Temple” – to further honor and commemorate the great knowledge and wisdoms of the Ancient Dragons – has re-found its place in the “World-Wide Web” and beyond.

Other sub-sites to this one,

Shall be eventually be restored and revitalized with more technical enhancements and improvements. Furthermore, we are also hosted on a more-capable, better-quality hosting service! Hopefully, this will translate into more years of “The Temple” being able to provide yet another “alternative view” to spirituality and the mysteries of the Ancient Dragons (whom some of us refer to lovingly, and reverently, as: “The Ancient Ones”).

So, please be patient just a little longer. Seems that I am the one best-suited for the technical details and “know-how”! 😉

 

Natural Immunity – 8-Plus Natural Antibiotics for The Immune System.

8 natural antibiotics for the immune system

by Christina Sarich   Posted on Natural Society,   November 11, 2013 Christina Sarich  spices assortment1 263x164 Natural Immunity: 8+ Natural Antibiotics to Replace the Pharmaceuticals for Good 
The overuse of antibiotics has become a modern-day epidemic. These drugs have depleted our natural immunity by killing the good bacteria in our guts and also creating super-bugs that have become resistant to almost any form of prescribed drug around. Instead of making yourself weaker, and depleting your body’s natural ability to cure itself from any number of ailments, try utilizing natural foods and herbs to ditch the Big Pharma meds for good.
Here are 8+ foods which harness natural antibiotic properties:

1 . Astragalus – An adaptogen, meaning it is an overall tonic for the body, astragalus has been used for thousands of years in Chinese medicinal practices to boost the immune system and counteract physical, mental, and emotional stress. Research has shown that it can be very effective at treating colds, protecting the liver, and keeping viruses at bay.


2 . Onions – This great tasting food is both antibacterial and antiseptic. If a person were to suck on a raw onion, it is thought that the healing components of the food could suck the disease right out of them. You can even place some cut up onions in your kitchen to protect against unwanted bacteria to keep your whole house healthy. When mixed with lime juice and a few other natural constituents, onions were even shown to eradicate antibiotic resistant Escherichia coli. Check out some other health benefits of onions here.


3 . Cabbage – One of the cruciferous vegetables, cabbage has anti-microbial properties which can kill all kinds of diseases naturally. The antibiotic properties of cabbage are increased once it has been fermented as well. So eat your sauerkraut, or better yet, make your own.


4 . Honey – Although honey has always been used to fight off infection, scientists have just recently identified one secret ingredient in honey that makes it a natural antibiotic because it kills unwanted bacteria. It’s a protein called defensin-1 which bees add to honey when they make it. It does what it sounds like too – makes your immune system a full defense against disease.


5 . Fermented Vegetables – Reseeding your gut with good microbes, which can be found in just about all fermented vegetables, can keep your immune system on full-tilt. If you haven’t already heard, your gut health accounts for about 80% of your overall immunity to disease, so putting the good bacteria back in is essential.


6 . Cinnamon – Sometimes called a ‘lethal’ natural antibiotic, cinnamon has been used medicinally for ages. Pure, real Ceylon cinnamon can even stop E.Coli in its tracks, a stubborn bacteria that causes many diseases. Experts at Kansas City State University found that not only does cinnamon act as a natural antibiotic, it is so full of antioxidants that it helps to boost the immune system in numerous ways.


7 . Sage – This herb is a wonderful natural solution for upper respiratory system issues. It can also help with stomach ailments, reduce fever naturally, and help with the common cold and flu.


8 . Thyme – Both thyme leaf and thyme oil are very effective natural antibiotics. A compound in thyme oil called thymol is also anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-protozoal properties.

There are other natural antibiotics out there too. They include:
  • Rosemary
  • Coriander
  • Dill, mustard seed
  • Anise
  • Basil
  • Lemon balm
  • Wild Indigo
  • Echinacea
  • Olive leaf
  • Turmeric
  • Pau D’ Arco
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Colloidal silver
  • Grapefruit seed extract
  • Garlic
  • Ginger
  • Oregano oil

With such a large offering from mother nature to treat ailments naturally, with all of their vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients to boot, why would we ever choose pharmaceuticals? These natural remedies also cost pennies per day to either grow or purchase and take as preventative medicine.

– Rev. Dragon’s Eye:

Time to seriously contemplate what we are going to do with the coming “End of The Age of Antibiotics”. As Hippocrates once stated:

Let Thy Food Be Thy Medicine,
And Thy Medicine Be Thy Food.

Over 98% of all health problems, illnesses, and “dis-eases” are DIETARY-RELATED. This is just plain commonsense! Dr. Linus Pauling had it right, BOTH TIMES.

Leviathan – The “Crooked Serpent”.

לִ וִ יָ תָ ן

Livyatan (“LiVYaThaN” – Leviathan) – As in Hebraic Tradition, the name is spelled from Right-to-Left.


“The Crooked/Bent Serpent” – May also be a reference to the constellation Draco, or the Ouroboros, or similar. – From the Semitic Texts: Often referred to the infernal beast of the seas, as being serpentine or serpent-like. Some viewed it as the guardian of the Seventh Gate into the Underworld. Others knew of it as one of the symbols of one of the “Seven Deadly Sins” mentioned in the Semitic Texts. I have found that the Hebraic/Aramaic character “Teth”, ( ט ), is a good symbolic representation of Leviathan for symbol and image magic. It is a fairly simple symbol to use, and comes from the culture(s) who originated some of the more recent myths about him.

Another legend had it that there were once two of them and that “God” destroyed one of them to prevent them from procreating more of their kind. Leviathan was one of three such infernal beasts, together with Behemoth and Ziz, that were to be killed at the end of times by God, and served up as a great feast to his children (ostensibly, the “Israelites” of the Old Testament).

Leviathan is considered to be as one of the main deities of the seas and oceans. “He” was often associated with the tidal waves and various turbulent conditions out at sea. Can also be considered akin to, if not another name for, the Kraken from Ancient Greek Mythology.

Whereas Leviathan is associated very strongly with the Element of Water, He is also associated with Darkness, and the Darkened Moon. Leviathan can be a VERY POWERFUL force to be reckoned with (by MY OWN experiences working with Him [and sometimes, as a “She”])! So great care is cautioned when looking to summon Leviathan for any kind of working. Leviathanic Magic is very good for opening blocks and also for seeking answers in the darkness and shadows.

Leviathan has been a great help in removing some of those impossible obstacles that other means have failed at. Best to summon him at night towards the darkest Moon (in otherwords, within a few days before the New Moon – to get the full effect). If you have the opportunity to conduct your ritual/ceremony on the night of a Black Moon, be prepared to be amazed and astonished. Leviathan’s power is greatest on nights like these. It is also highly-advised that you have a good, solid circle, and everything set up to balanced energies. If you are working with a partner of the opposite sex, you may both do the working by calling on “polarities”, that is – calling the Masculine and Feminine aspects of Leviathan separately, with each of you taking on the aspects of that particular polarity you call. (I have an example Dark Moon Ritual I have done that I will upload and format later.)

If you are assuming the role (IE: “Invoking” Leviathan), please do make very sure you are properly grounded and of good health and mental alertness to handle the coming surge of energy. By Invoking Leviathan, you are inviting Him into your Being and will be expected to handle the massive amounts of His energy flowing throughout you! – You have be so cautioned.

On Michael Talbot’s “Holographic Universe”.

First off, I want to thank my apprenticeship teacher for recommending this fine book as part of her curriculum, “Elemental Witchcraft”.

This became an indispensable book for me, even after my training was done. It was also a book that helped me to open my eyes even further, to the realities around the area of magic, and the use of our given mental powers to effectuate changes. During the progression of this “Age of Reason”, just about anything that deviated from the held societal view that there is only the physical existence and nothing else, was cast off as “make-believe” and purely fantasy – all because it could not all be reduced to “scientific theory” and reproduced, faithfully and consistently, in a laboratory. Well, time for the nay-sayers to start rethinking their less-than-reasonable assumptions concerning those things that are not so easily reproducible under closed, unbelieving eyes!

I have always considered myself to be of a scientific mind. The subject of Science was always my most favored and best subject in school, since at least the second grade. I have had several major influences in my life, of whom I highly respected and admired; mostly – several of my teachers, and of folks like Issac Asimov, Carl Sagan, Albert Einstein, etc. Virtually NONE of them were so willing to dismiss something or anything that did not quite fit into the “mold” of scientific thinking, let alone yield readily available, analytic data and consistent repetition. So what has happened to today’s scientists and their practice of science? That I can reasonably conclude in another written piece.

Anyway, onward to the review.

First thing I would like to consider about this book: It was a very easy-to-follow and educational read. It was a definite eye-opener in that much of what was stated was backed up by source-able examples of various experiments and evaluations as footnoted in its pages, and documented in the list of sources in the back of the book. This book did well to explain where science actually does prove that there are things and happenings that DO happen without being obvious and sometimes even physically-manifested into physical existence. One such means is through Quantum Theory and its associated theories and plethora of supportive examples. This book could easily be read within a few days by an avid reader (like myself), and understood as to what it all means. The title was very apropos toward what the book is about: That much of what we thought was purely the rational and logical (sequential), is more likely holographic and ever-expansive as concerning the Universe, and all things within it. This in regard to the fact that the Quantum Physics theories are among the newest questions, and proposed answers, in the field of science. Many of today’s theoretical scientists are still trying to come to terms as to how Quantum Physics changes the way we think about existence and all things considered.

Quantum Entanglement Theory was well-explained, probably better than I could explain it, even though I have a very good understanding of it. Quantum Entanglement also answers many of the formerly-unanswerable questions on such things as what happens when one observes a particle of matter, and what happens otherwise. This, taken together with the “Observer Effect”, leads to a very chilling surprise on whether our current methods and orthodoxy on observing and measuring particles, particle dynamics and effects, as well as habits are effective or not when it comes to giving us clear, accurate answers and observations on what goes on – both as observed and as not actively observed. This also brings into question as to whether certain particles exist because of their reality, or because we subconsciously “create” them, instantaneously with the power of our “observant” minds. This part of theory has been tested and measured in laboratory conditions to the amazement of the observers. Again, sources cited on those very experiments and evaluations.

The “Holographic Theory” is well-explained and, in some cases, diagrammed with accompanying drawings and sketches. It proposes that we live a “holographic” existence, rather than purely a singular, physical-only entity – on the basis that all matter, down to its particulate level, may exist in multiple dimensions (thought of as multiple-universes or “multiversal” in nature) at once. A given particle, for example, could exist momentarily in one or more points in space simultaneously, and perhaps only for a very brief moment (the moment it is being actively observed by either a living being or even an artificial machine)! So, most matter appears to only exist because WE mentally create them, as a function of our existence. This also goes well with the ancient description of the “Web of Life” idea that many wise-folk taught their newer generations for thousands of years – well before the advent “modern science”.

Though Mr. Talbot was not dogmatic nor doctrinal towards any specific religion or belief system, he did a very good job in seeing and writing of the associated ideas and beliefs as they converged to where we have an even-greater difficulty in separating science from spirituality. I have long held that science and spirituality were always together as part of the common discipline of “higher learning”. One who was a shaman or “medicine man” was not only a healer and seer, but also a bit of a mathematician, historian, story-teller, mediator, counselor, priest, warrior, astronomer, astrologer, and holder of many different areas of expertise in knowledge and tradition. All paths of knowledge were part and parcel of the life-long teachings that went into the making of a “wise-folk”. The Quantum Theories came about in the right time, and do much justice in supporting, although through a bit different colored-lens, some of the vast knowledge mankind has possessed.

For this being such a short review, I hope it explains well that this book should be a good reference and an appealing read. It helped to me begin my journey into the magical art, backed up with some legitimate science. This book is a very nice, easy read that provides some very good detailed information, topped with an astonishing conclusion.

A View to Inner-Peace – The Pause Between Thoughts.

For lack of anything better to write about at this moment,

I thought I would do something fairly short on Inner-Peace and the momentary silence between events, ideas, thoughts, and so on. This post came as an idea after I was talking with a friend of mine about Dreams and how we sometimes interfere with our own abilities to receive them: By “trying” too hard.

One of the very first lessons I learned when I was attending a meditation group was to RELAX, and calm the mind and body. Just so happened that the group I was with was organized and lead by a (long-time) Buddhist student. One of the simplest exercises, though not so easy to do by the many, was to not concentrate on anything but your breathing. Every thought, every sound, every feeling – was to be acknowledged – and then your attention returned to your breathing. The whole idea was to eventually find the absolute emptiness and inner peace within your Being.

One of the things I understood about some of the later experiences with meditation(s) in another group, was to not “concentrate” too hard toward anything, but let the images and feelings come to you. This works very much like when in the presence of an unfamiliar animal (and even its spirit): You do not approach it, but let it, on its own volition, approach you – while you maintain a fairly relaxed composure. Many times, some of life’s more-challenging experiences may require this approach in order for one to find the solution that best fits the problem.

The world of magic, healing, and many of the other “meta-physical” aspects of life may require a more-subtle approach than we are used to being told to do. This is where “society” often fails us, miserably, when it comes to practical ways to find and employ solutions to the many complex problems we may face, day to day. So, I advised this friend of mine about the less-common path of least resistance, by suggesting he not try too hard to force his Mind to come with the answers, but relax and let his Mind do what it does best: Imagine and picture the solution into being. Then, he is free to try the solution and see if it fits the problem at hand.

It is also just as practical that when one is faced with an “insurmountable” problem (as some would say: an “impasse”), be not afraid to stand back a few moments and take a pause. Sometimes, it is that moment of silence we need to pay attention to. Oftentimes, it is within that “moment of silence” when we will hear the quiet voice of Wisdom speaking to us. So, there IS great power in that moment of silence.

– Please find your moment of silence, and the resulting Inner-Peace today!

Rethinking Cause-and-Effect – How the “Web of Life” fits in.

I have been doing some further thinking, based on what I read in Michael Talbot’s “The Holographic Universe”.


Some interesting images and thoughts came to me that also related to when I was reading the “Kybalion” by the Three Initiates. It had to do with the Hermetic Principle on Cause and Effect. Some ascribe this to being the “Karmic Laws”, even though there is some misinterpretation of Karma in many of today’s groups. I would like to provide a little bit of a different insight into the nature of Cause and Effect.

I ) Causes and their Effects do interrelate with each other and CAN also operate in the reverse:

In other words, there are cases where the Cause(s) and Effect(s) can affect each other in the reverse order, IE: A cause in one instance can become the effect of the action of the other, which was its effect and, instead, become its causor. This can be considered as a “mirroring” of the Cause-and-Effect instance(s), as the cause(s) and effect(s) may “change places” with each other based on the particular situation or “need”.

II ) Causes and Effects are not necessarily singular and purely linear:

Each “cause” can possibly have multiple influences or multiple “effects”. Just as each “effect” can have multiple contributing “causes”. Much like any action on a spider’s web, can be felt, whether greatly or slightly, in more than one place upon its web – even, at the same instant. Anyone with a background in mathematics would be amazed at how “irrational” Nature can be. Nature works very heavily with irrational numbers and ratios; Which show up in the many calculations of arcs, spirals, and other circular “events”.

III ) Also, Nature likes circles, spirals, and “non-linearity”. Therefore, causes and effects can easily rebound and cycle; as per the first two observations I stated above:

What this says, is that certain conditions may have it that one or more causes may feed into themselves through their one or more effects. I like to think of this as a “feedback loop”; something that the nature of spirals and cycles often work by. Now whether a particular “spiral” results in an increase or decrease in strength and energy is another matter. If such a “feedback” results in the same level of energy and strength being repeated over and over again, then you may have what results in a steady cycle – of this set of causes and effects!

IV ) Causes and their resulting effects that feedback upon each other can also cause “ripple effects”:

The analogy and actual demonstration of tossing a stone into a quiet, placid body of water (whether at a pond, or just a home swimming pool) and its resulting ripples comes to mind. Now, if one were to toss more than one stone, perhaps even at slightly delayed intervals, one would see the action of the ripples from each of the landed stones (the “causes” or “events”) as they collide with each other. These colliding ripples may either cancel some of their energies out, OR they may create some interesting new ripples. These collision points can be referred to as “interference points”.

V ) Interference points as resulting complex events due to multiple influences and/or other contributing causes and/or effects:

When two or more event “ripples” collide, a new event may occur at that point. Some believe that major events of such great magnitude and power are only possible with the help of multiple contributing causes and effects, because of the amount of energy contributed multiplies exponentially. So, if there are more powerful influences that contribute even a tiny amount of additional energy towards the “intended” effect, the end effect’s energy will be far greater by magnitudes! (This is something to think about when planning the execution of another magical working, etc.)

This also why a small group of fairly new practitioners may see considerable effects, if they are all focused on the same intention, to their working more so than one solitary who may only practice his/her art occasionally. This may also explain why some workings may be best done in a group ritual, rather than as a solitary if that solitary witch does not have much extensive practice in workings by him/herself?!?

VI ) Nature is all about causes and effects:

Right there is the ultimate truth about the power and workings of Nature. We see these causes and their related effects around us all the time. All things that occur are because of Nature’s causes and effects; This highlights the “Natural Law” at its most basic level. Natural Law does not operate on only one or two “planes” at a time. Nature is very “Holographic” and operates on ALL planes at the same time. Therefore, some of the most powerful workings, coming from some of the most learned in the Arts of magic and Nature, know to use the powers of Nature to their advantage and to “super-power” their workings.

Those who try to work against the powers of Nature, are simply working out of balance with Nature and will probably fail miserably. Nature is far more powerful than any of us alone! Therefore, it makes the most sense to work alongside that Natural power, and in balance with Nature, when deciding to do a working. The ancient shamanic wise-folk knew of this many thousands of years ago.


A final note:

As per what I have written here, please consider carefully the idea of limiting the effects of your spells. If some spells can continue on by themselves, all due to the right kinds of influences and energies being present to keep powering them, you may have a difficult time in determining where and how to end an errant spell. THIS IS WHY, in some groups, it said that once an intention is powered up and released into the open Cosmos, it can not (I like to say: “may not”) be recalled! So please consider how to “tie up” a spell enough so that it only does what it is intended to do, and then dissipate or cease altogether.

The Warning from The Great Red Dragon.

This was a Prophecy, as given to me, by the Divine Prominence of the Great Red Dragon of the Ancients.


An image that kept repeating itself to me lately.

I had learned a bit more from a Hopi Prophecy that predates anything related to Christianity, Catholicism, and any of the other Abrahamic religions, lately. It was interesting and intriguing how the legend and myth bore so many similarities (symbolically) to many of the “prophecies” one can read from the Bible’s “Book of Revelation”, and other works. It also reminded me of the Norse Mythology of the “Time of Fire and Ice” in the lead up to Ragnarok. I also had some memories of what I read from the Rig Veda concerning Vrtra (their name for the Red Serpent or Dragon).

In virtually all of these stories,

There was mentioned the “End of the Age(s)”, or in the current interpretation of the Biblical Revelation, The End of the World”. I speak to this as someone who first learned about evolution, mass-extinctions, and the constant changes our Earth undergoes, long before ever being exposed to the spiritual traditions and mysteries of the various earthly religions. Though I have probably forgotten far more than I could possibly realize, much of it is starting to come back to me in the form of connective dreams, images, and “feelings” (I AM an empath, after all).

So, let’s start off with a few “data points” so that we can get a better grasp of where I am going with this post.

In understanding that nothing in the Universe, let alone our little world, remains as constant or in any fashion of “sameness”, it comes as no surprise to the observant as well as astute occult student and theologians that our past ancestors were apparently very well aware of the changes and the rough-guestimate time periods of these changes. They noticed the great and small cycles as evidenced in Nature, here on Earth, and in the Heavens above. Many of the ancient structures that were unearthed, and many that are still yet to be re-discovered, hold many clues as to what many of our ‘primitive’ ancestors had accumulated for knowledge about this mysterious Earth. One thing that was a common finding; various charts, diagrams, written mythologies and legends (in very symbolic and numerologic language) tell the tales of these once existing cultures and nations’ possession of the knowledge of cycles and periodic events. Many of these legends and myths have turned out to have a lot of truth in them after all!

The Procession (and Precession) of Equinoxes being one of the most important markers of the various cycles and great “ages” come and gone. We look, for instance, into the various stories and legends in the Bible (because this is where I am most familiar with some of the specifics). The numerology and symbolism is very present throughout all of the Bible’s various “books”. Though most Catholics, Christians, and various derivative religions will vehemently refute and deny this truth, it becomes very obvious when these texts are compared very closely with the ancient religious texts of legends and myths from other, more ancient cultures. There is a common trend and understanding to be attained when one looks past the “literal interpretations” of the texts. The symbolism screams the message that so many “literal-ists” miss.

The Mayan and Aztec Calenders are also interesting sources for interesting information through the use of symbolism, numerology, and contexts in which they are to be understood. The three different calenders representing the three different cyclical measuring systems and sets of cycles. The main one being of the measurement of the Great Calender and how its cycles are an astonishing 64,000,000 ( 64 Million ) years in length, beginning to end! Guess what??? – So our Earth’s geologic “eras” are about 62.5 million to about 65 million years in duration! What an interesting coincidence: “Science proves, yet again, that the ancients were obviously knowledgeable about their world and the cycles of Nature – in excess of what we, today, know!”

Since my travels with the Dragon Spirit(s),

I have learned to look more closely at the patterns of Nature, and the bits of information to be found from many of the ancient cultures. Much of which can have serious consequences to those who choose to ignore. – In other words, “IGNORE THEM AT YOUR OWN PERIL!” I have had recurrent dreams and imagery that would seem very prophetic, except that these dreams have also showed me where to look and what questions to ponder while wandering this life. If I had the appropriate equipment, I would rather have done a serious video presentation for everyone so that they see the face of the messenger who brings these warnings to a still-sleepy world. I thank and forever hold debt to the Great Dragon for revealing to me the pattern that followed and the Path to higher understanding to be able to discern that which I have before me: ” Knowledge and clarity that has eluded so many. ” – The other Children of Dragons should already be awakened and becoming aware of what these great changes mean to all of us (all Kindreds and all Spirits).

Now, on to the warnings as given me this day.

We are towards the end of this Age. We are towards that point where endless darkness is about to spread its wings in every direction. This darkness, though not necessarily evil, just is as it is. It is the “pause” between the machinations of the Ages, much like that pause of silence between thoughts, the pause between breaths. We are about to experience a “pause” in between the Ages, but this pause will be much longer for us than many in the past. This because we are about to pause between two Great Ages, One of Fire, and the one of Ice. We have passed the current Age of Fire and are about to meet up with the next Age of Ice. We can see this happening now by looking at the quickening of the increases in ice masses at BOTH of the polar regions (even though, the various “agencies” and organizations say we are “warming” – all to convince the peoples to give up everything that belongs to them, including their basic rights). These increases in ice mass, yearly, have very quickly increased in frequency and in percentages. This means that much of the accumulating ice masses are far out-pacing the usual Summer melt-offs, are actually gaining mass much like a snowball gains mass as it is rolling down a snow covered hillside.

As the polar regions are actually growing, this means less water is being returned into the atmosphere (through evaporation, rain, and flowing streams and rivers) than is being taken up to form the increased mass of ice and snow. With less water being “re-flowed” back into the Natural system, this means less rainfall in certain areas of the world. If the Earth was warming, as the scare-mongers keep bleating, this melted-off ice would have returned into the Natural system aplenty, and we should not be seeing as many localized and regionalized droughts that we are seeing now! So, in essence, our various land-based bodies of water are being fed less and less by dwindling rainfall – because there is less water being made available FOR rainfall – because it is being “locked -up” in ice at the poles!

The Sun (or “Son” in some religious doctrines) also has a great effect upon the Earth’s and the neighboring planets’ ecosystems and general climates. The more solar activity our Sun experiences, the more solar energy our Earth is exposed to. The more solar flares and sunspots, the more actively our Earth’s weather changes to very placid and calm. The warmer that particular time period (several years) gets. If our Sun has a weaker solar-cycle (IE: fewer sunspots and flares), we see more clouds in our atmosphere and therefore, more storms. We also have a considerably cooler year or more, until the next great solar activity “bump”. This passing Solar Cycle has been an especially weak one in that there have been far fewer solar flares and sunspots than has been recorded for a long time! Our solar cycles have also progressively gotten longer in duration. Weaker Solar Cycles, and lengthier durations of these weaker cycles is quite telling! These make for cooler conditions that trend towards the formation of more ice and ice mass on the poles, and a gradual expansion of the polar areas in to regions that are now seeing shorter growing seasons and longer, harsher winters.

The last major “Ice Age” that lasted, perhaps a few centuries, followed along what became known the Maunder Minimum: That point where Solar activity is almost non-existent. This thought to be as if the Sun were simply “sleeping” for a time period, before beginning a new series of active Solar Cycles. The Hopi stories of the “Fifth Sun” speak clearly of this cycle and others like it. By their estimates, we may be facing a century-long Ice Age, as is cyclical on a 5,200-year boundary. I have not yet cross-referenced this with any of the Mayan Calender epochs, but will probably find something interesting nonetheless. The previous Major Ice Age covered virtually all of the Northern side of the American Continent as well as much of the Southern end of the American Continent. If we are to see another Ice Age to the likeness of that one, the only places that will have decent climate and weather during those years will probably be between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn (the Equatorial “band” as I know of it).

One other aspect that I have learned some years ago,

Imagine being an observer outside of our galaxy. Now notice that everything works in a cyclical, rotating habit. Our Moon circles the Earth, The Earth circles the Sun, Our Sun and its “Solar System” circles the galaxy. This is a grand picture of, “As Above, So Below. As Below, So Above.” Cycles in Nature come in all sizes and forms, large and small. Our Earth’s axis parallels the Sun’s axis. Our Sun’s axis also parallels the Galactic axis (of the center of the galaxy). However, none of these circles are perfectly round as we imagine them to be. They also are not totally planar, they “oscillate” like a Sine Wave which is the nature of cycles in general. Though these oscillations may not be as noticeable in our own solar system, but they are significantly larger deviations if we are thinking at the galactic level. This is because the galaxy is immensely larger than our “little solar system”. Our solar system is like a mere speck of dust in comparison to the grand size if the galaxy. Therefore, such oscillations and deviations are going to be proportionally larger in scale.

Another look at what our galaxy looks like. (We have a lot of galactic neighbors, and the wonders of the Hubble Space Telescope to help us see them!) We are likely to think of our galaxy as almost as flat (planar) as a dish or plate. The planar portion of the galaxy is where most of the orbiting “Suns” and other stars, with their attendant planets and planetary bodies orbiting them, are to be found orbiting the galactic center. Because there are far more such bodies in this area, it is thought that the galactic planar mass also has the strongest cumulative gravity interacting between each orbiting system. We notice certain strange things happening with our planet’s climate and weather patterns when we have a solar alignment of several planets and (and planetoids) parallel to one another in the form of an axis. So it makes the most sense to see this relationship of inter-gravitational effects (again, cumulative effects) at the galactic level too! (Nature seems to LOVE parallels!)

This could also explain why we have been seeing more “near-Earth” objects passing so close to us – “we” are getting closer to the other orbiting objects within the disc-shaped galactic planar mass.

Now, taking some of the various mythologies about a Red Serpent/Dragon being part of the onslaught of “destruction” in this world, brings me a greater curiosity. The star in question is Sirius “B”. It seems that it was recorded (in ancient texts?) that it periodically extends in Two directions from its mass (a Red Star), to form what appears to be a Great Serpent! To take away from these ancient myths and legends: This happens BEFORE the catastrophic events take place here on Earth. Therefore, is it that Sirius “B” is actually a “warning” to all of us that we are approaching that “danger zone” into the galactic planar mass where we are most likely to see a planetary-collision from loose objects (like asteroids, comets, and other huge chunks of “space-rock”)? I would tend to think so on the basis of the reading of these ancient mythologies. – It also happens to align with the 62.5-65 million-year cycles on Earth: The SAME kind of cycle known for Extinction-Level-Events ( “ELE’s” ). So HOW old is this present “Era”, the Cenozoic Era? – Almost 65 Million Years’ old! – Did the Mayans and/or their ancestors know something that we are still not yet seeing ??? Their Great Calender at its longest cycle was almost 65 Million years’ in length! We just thought about the Mayan Calender ending in late 2012. Were we correct on the time alignments with their Great Calender to ours? Maybe not.

Anyway, the image that came to me was one of a galactic origin. We may presently find our little Solar System about to be challenged whilst it begins its journey into the plane of the galaxy. Being that this is also much closer to other “neighboring” stars, systems, and wandering space rocks, we may find ourselves witnessing more near-Earth objects passing very closely by us. (This seems to be what is being deliberately under- or unreported by our various “space-watcher”-organizations! – All ostensibly to keep us all from worrying about it.) We also have the other specter to consider: The fact that most of our natural cloud-making actions come from particulates that originate from outside of our inner-space (Ionosphere, Stratosphere, etc.). If we are to be within the galactic plane, we are also much closer to a more dense source of tiny, cloud-friendly “dust particles”. So along with the weakening of our Sun’s Solar Cycles (IE: less energy being directed at Earth) as part of its “hibernation”, we have more contributing particulates towards more cloud cover around our world. – Therefore, with all of these natural, cyclical events about to come full circle, we stand a very good chance of seeing what the end of an “era”, in geological terms, looks like. Therefore, if it can be seen that our “Red Serpent” comes into existence (through a very good telescope – pointed towards Sirius “B”), our “messenger” has spoken. Times will indeed get very interesting for all inhabitants on Earth!
