When you were a child, did you ever have an imaginary playmate? Well, I did but he was quite real to me. He was a sweet boy and we played together at my North Texas home, for hours each day. I don't believe I ever called him by a name, just "brother".
When adults would ask me who I was talking to, I'd tell them it was my baby brother. If they pressed further and said they couldn't see him, I would obligingly tell them that "he died but I can see him." I could never quite understand the looks on their faces, looks of bemused horror.
Was "brother" real? He was to me and at that time and in my mind, that was all that mattered. One day he just stopped coming around. I don't know if it was because I was getting older, or at the urging of my parents I simply blocked him from my mind. He was my best friend and I missed him.
Its here that I should say I was an only child, born to older parents, who for years could not have children. My birth was to say the least, just short of a miracle, divine intervention, or something else... and who, or what my childhood playmate was, I can't say for sure.
Another clear memory I have, is when I was 4 or maybe a bit younger, seeing a bright light in my bedroom at night and 3 to 4 "little men" appearing, to take me away. It was many years before I realized just who those little men were and for years, they have occasionally come back, to take me away. Luckily I don't remember many of those trips away, or where to but a few I do, especially the more recent, very unpleasant ones.
There are just too many events and odd occurrences in my life to list here. It would take a book and I don't know that it would be all that interesting a read, to anyone but myself. However, I can say that my whole life has been intertwined with many paranormal and odd events, even certain abilities I've discovered. Certain experiences and UFO sightings, along with the many other paranormal experiences I have had, has lead me, albeit guided me, to seek answers to the alien/UFO phenomena. This endeavor has opened up a whole "can of worms" but one I am willing to sort out. Thus, I began LITS, a blog site dedicated to the research, investigation and understanding of UFOs (unidentified flying objects) and extraterrestrials.
As luck would have it, I became friends with Lon Strickler. He eventually asked me if I would be interested in joining the SRI team. I am thoroughly honored and proud to be a team member for Spirit Rescue International™. I hope, that my abilities and dedication will serve my colleagues well, in our quest to help and serve mankind, both the living and the spirit.
The esoteric and paranormal influences in my life were a bit more unusual than most. My descendants (who came to America in 1734) were Ana-Baptists from Switzerland... better known in the New World as the Amish. I am the 13th generation of the family that fled the reformation and persecution.
The folk healing used in the Pennsylvania Dutch and High German communities was known as 'Pow-Wow'. The well-known 'hex signs' (Speilwerk) on Amish barns are Pow-Wow symbols used to deter evil spirits. Unlike HooDoo and some other forms of conjuring, Pow-Wow is deeply associated with Christian beliefs though there is a hex casting dark side to the art. Most of the better known healing spells and folk magic are in John George Hohman's 1820 German-American magical receipt-book named Pow-Wows or Long Lost Friend Though 'Pow-Wow is illegal to practice in Pennsylvania and other places...be assured, it is still used.
My family had deep religious beliefs and prescribed to the long held symbols and customs. Though I'm not a religious person, I am spiritual and continue to keep 'The Long Lost Friend' near me...always. It's my version of a 'talisman'. The 1988 film Apprentice to Murderwas based on a true-life murder of a relative by a Pow-Wow doctor (portrayed by actor Donald Sutherland) and his apprentice in southern Pennsylvania. The incident was referred to as 'The Hex Murder' and detailed in the book Murder and Mayhem in York Countyand Arthur H. Lewis' book Hex
Paranormal activity has been a part of me all my life. I have always had some psychic sensitivity but lacked the knowledge to properly use it. But one important event forced me to further examine my beliefs and how I would regard life here and beyond.
In 1977, it was confirmed that my great Aunt Lydie was suffering from lung cancer. The prognosis was not good and the doctors stated that she had very little time to live despite the fact that her illness didn't slow her down. After a stint in the hospital, she returned home and continued her normal routine.
Lydie was my mother's aunt, my grandfather's sister and would always open her home and kitchen to the family. The fact is that she practically raised my mother since my grandparents both worked. Her and my uncle owned a well-kept home in the south central Pennsylvania countryside that was surrounded by cornfields and woodlands. When I was a boy, I would take long hikes along the dirt roads as well as hunt for squirrel and deer in their woods. When I'd return to the house, my aunt would have a big hug and food on the table. I was very close to my Aunt Lydie.
I had been married to my first wife about a year and was living outside of Baltimore, MD. My mother also lived in Maryland but about 15 miles from me. The family kept daily contact with Lydie and we all continued to visit her to make sure the house was maintained even though we lived an hour away. Lydie seemed resilient and didn't let her illness get her down.
One late night, my wife and I were in bed asleep when 'something' woke me. I rolled on my back, opened my eyes and noticed that the room seemed to be illuminated somehow. By that time, my wife had also awaken and was wondering aloud as to why the room had lightened.
We sat up and looked around the room in amazement. I was just about to get out of bed to check on my baby daughter when suddenly, a white billowy apparition started to materialize by the foot of the bed. The form was about 5 feet in height and continued to take a distinct form. Little by little, the spectre developed into the likeness of my Aunt Lydie.
As I looked at the apparition's face, I could see the mouth and eyes moving. It looked directly at me as it seemed like it was trying to tell me something. Both arms started to raise as if it wanted to hug me...the same way my Aunt Lydie would do when I'd walk through her kitchen door. My wife was motionless, shocked and scared out of her mind! She jumped out of bed and ran into my daughter's bedroom, slamming the door behind her. By this time, the apparition started to dissipate and was completely gone after a few seconds.
I sat on the bed utterly astonished. Honestly, this wasn't the first ghost or phantom I had seen but it definitely was the most unforgettable. Then it struck me...my Aunt Lydie was dead.
I looked at the alarm clock which read 2:33am. Just then, the telephone on the nightstand started to ring. I picked up the receiver and it was my mother calling.
"Lon...don't get upset. But, did you see Lydie?" I acknowledge to her that I had. She continued, "Well, Mom (my grandmother) called me and said Lydie had come to say goodbye to her and Daddy (my grandfather)."
Well, by this time, I was totally freaked out. The fact that we all lived in separate locations many miles apart and that the spectre of my Aunt Lydie had visited us at the same time was mind boggling...at least to this, then, 20 year old.
In the morning we were told that my aunt had been rushed to the hospital a little after 2:00am and had died in the emergency room at 2:27am after suffering a massive stroke.
This incident really opened my eyes and encouraged me to take a serious look at paranormal field work. Since that time, I have experienced a plethora of strange and unexplained phenomena and still possess the desire to find answers...Lon

Vril: The Power of the Coming Race(original title), also known as The Coming Race is a novel published in 1870 by Edward Bulwer-Lytton. Edward Bulwer-Lytton was a member of British Royalty who was involved in politics and became the Secretary of State for the Colonies. He was a poet, playwright and novelist who authored many books, the most popular being, The Last Days of Pompeii Most people associated with secret societies and occult lodges never took his work, The Coming Race as mere fiction. but truth veiled in a fictional story. The novel is an early example of science fiction, sometimes cited as the first of this genre. The elements believed as truth was that a superior subterranean master race with the energy-form called Vril, and their claim to rise and conquer the surface race someday, was accurate, to the extent that a few wealthy and influential members who were theosophists accepted the book as truth and began to act upon their beliefs.
The plot of the novel centers on a mining engineer, who accidentally finds his way into a subterranean kingdom occupied by beings (the race of the Vril-ya), who seem to resemble angels. The hero soon discovers that they are descendants of the inhabitants of Atlantis. They have access to an extraordinary force called "Vril" that can be controlled at will. However their spiritually elevated hosts controlled the Vril.
In the novel, uses of Vril amongst the Vril-ya vary from an agent of destruction to a healing substance. According to Zee, the narrator's host, Vril can be changed into the mightiest agency over all types of matter, both animate and inanimate. It can destroy like lightning or replenish life, heal, or cure.
The hero is looked upon as a pet who might have to be put down or at least kept for all time with them. He escapes this subterranean realm with the knowledge that this race intends to someday resurface to take control of the surface dwellers, hence the title The Coming Race.
There is a strong belief that the Vril Society was founded as "The All German Society for Metaphysics" in to explore the origins of the Aryan race, to seek contact with the "hidden masters" of Ultima Thule, and to practice meditation and other techniques intended to strengthen individual mastery of the divine Vril force itself. It was formed by a group of female psychic mediums led by the Thule Gesellschaft medium Maria Orsitsch (Orsic) of Zagreb.
Members of the Vril Society are said to have included Adolf Hitler, Alfred Rosenberg, Heinrich Himmler, Hermann Göring, and Hitler's personal physician, Dr. Theodor Morell. These were original members of the Thule Society which supposedly joined Vril in 1919. The NSDAP (National Sozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei) was created by Thule in 1920, one year later.
With Hitler in power in 1933, both the Thule and Vril Gesellschafts allegedly received official state backing for continued disc development programs aimed at both spaceflight and possibly a war machine.
A great deal of time and resources were spent ($23B+ US today) on researching or creating a popularly accepted “historical”, “cultural” and “scientific” background so the ideas about a “superior” Aryan race could prosper in the German society of the time.
Expeditions in Tibet, Nepal, Greece, the Arctic, and Neuschwabenland in Antarctica were organized in the search for the mythical “Aryan” nation of Hyperborea, whose capital, Ultima Thule was supposedly built by the extraterrestrial ancestors of the “Aryan races” who came from the star Aldebaran, according to some of the “Aryan” theories.
A German expedition to Tibet was organized in order to search for the origins of the Aryan race. To this end, the expedition leader, Ernst Schäfer, had his anthropologist Bruno Beger make face masks and skull and nose measurements.
Similar expeditions were organized in the pursuit of semi-mythical objects believed to bring power or granting special powers to their owner, such as the Holy Grail and the Spear of Destiny.
It has been speculated by many esoteric Hitlerists and conspiracy theorists that study Nazi mysticism and the events that unfolded in World War 2 that the Germans landed on the Moon as early as 1942. Evidence for these claims have been backed up by certain sources, including Vladimir Terziski, the president of the American Academy of Dissident Sciences. This extraordinary theory also plays into the accusations of a conspiracy in the Apollo moon landing hoax, believed to have been orchestrated by the United States government and NASA.
Another theory proposed is the possibility that the Nazis had the capability for spaceflight due to their advanced technology in engineering as well as the exo-atmospheric rocket saucers which are shown in Terziski’s documentation with pictures and designs. It has been suggested that the Nazis had managed to reach the Moon and later the planet Mars, with these rocket-powered saucers.
According to other theories it is believed that the Nazis had made contact with ‘half a dozen’ alien races, including the malevolent reptilians.
It is believed by Vladimir Terziski that there is a lunar atmosphere, as well as water and vegetation on the Moon. According to his claims it is not necessary for a man to wear a space suit to walk on the Moon. This information of course contradicts widely accepted data, such as that supplied by NASA. Terziski promotes his belief that the Germans managed to construct their lunar headquarters by tunneling under the surface of the Moon, and that towards the end of the war they had established a small Nazi research base. According to Terziski, the Germans continue their space effort from their Antarctic colony of Neuschwabenland after the end of the war in May 1945.
NOTE: one needs to ask....what, if any, of this technology ended up in the hands of the United States and/or the Soviets? The Hollow Earth theory as well as Reptilians and other extraterrestrial races....are they here and how long? Were the Nazis given technology by alien races and to what degree was it used? Did most of these supposed secrets and technology die with the Nazis? Also, was Hitler's 'Third Reich' basically conceived from a science fiction novel? Frankly, my experience with David E. and his alien encounters and accounts sparked my interest in this subject...but there is much more to it. Here are two very good source links The Vril Society, the Luminous Lodge and the Realization of the Great Work and The Nazi UFO Secret...Lon
The world will not end on December 21, 2012 as some interpret the Mayan prophecies. One of the important discoveries from the Yucatan ruins is that the Maya had several calendars. One is known as the Long Count calendar, which is reset to day 0 every 1,872,000 days, a period known as The Great Circle. The next reset date, by some calculations, is December 21, 2012. Obviously, this calendar is of no interest to the Maya any longer, since their civilization collapsed over a thousand years ago. (Though there are people today who are the descendants of the Maya and the culture lives on through them) Nevertheless, this date is of enormous interest to certain doomsday prophets and New Age astrologers, such as Carl Johan Calleman, who are spreading the good news either that the Maya knew the date when the world would end or they knew the date when a New Age of Transformation would begin.
In Charles Gallenkamp's book Maya: The Riddle and Rediscovery of a Lost Civilization, on December 21, 2012, there will be an "alignment between the galactic and solar planes." The winter solstice sun will "conjunct the Milky Way." This is supposed to open up some sort of "cosmic sky portal."
The cosmic alignment on 12/21/2012 - click image to enlarge
Astrologer John Major Jenkins explains the chart: If we make a standard horoscope chart for December 21st, 2012 A.D., nothing very unusual appears. In this way I was led astray in my search until Linda Schele provided a clue in the recent book Maya Cosmos. Probably the most exciting breakthrough in this book is her identification of the astronomical meaning of the Mayan Sacred Tree. Drawing from an impressive amount of iconographic evidence, and generously sharing the process by which she arrived at her discovery, the Sacred Tree is found to be none other than the crossing point of the ecliptic with the band of the Milky Way. Indeed, the Milky Way seems to have played an important role in Mayan imagery. For example, an incised bone from 8th century Tikal depicts a long sinking canoe containing various deities. This is a picture of the night sky and the canoe is the Milky Way, sinking below the horizon as the night progresses, and carrying with it deities representing the nearby constellations.
The incredible Mayan site of Palenque is filled with Sacred Tree motifs and references to astronomical events. In their book [A] Forest of Kings, Schele and Freidel suggested that the Sacred Tree referred to the ecliptic. Apparently that was only part of the picture, for the Sacred Tree that [the Mayan king] Pacal ascends in death is more than just the ecliptic, it is the sacred doorway to the underworld. The crossing point of Milky Way and ecliptic is this doorway and represents the sacred source and origin. [Apparently, Jenkins is interpreting Pacal's sarcophagus, which depicts the Sacred Tree emerging from what has been called an umbilical cord]
While it is true that the sun conjuncts the Sacred Tree on December 3rd in the year 755 A.D., over the centuries precession has caused the conjunction date to approach the winter solstice. So, how close are we to perfect conjunction today? Exactly when might we expect the winter solstice sun to conjunct the crossing point of Galactic Equator and ecliptic - the Mayan Sacred Tree? Any astronomer will tell you that, presently, the Milky Way crosses the ecliptic through the constellation of Sagittarius and this area is rich in nebulae and high density objects. In fact, where the Milky Way crosses the ecliptic in Sagittarius also happens to be the direction of the Galactic Center.
Most astronomers will likely tell you that an alignment between our sun and any particular point in the Milky Way will just bring another day in paradise here on planet Earth. In any case, Jenkins is not alone in his interpretation of the mysterious Maya Long Count calendar. A Guatemalan anthropologist and student of Maya history and calendars, Carlos Barrios, has a similar interpretation:
The Mayan Calendars comprehension of time, seasons, and cycles has proven itself to be vast and sophisticated. The Maya understand 17 different calendars, some of them charting time accurately over a span of more than ten million years. The calendar that has steadily drawn global attention since 1987 is called the Tzolk'in or Cholq'ij. Devised ages ago and based on the cycle of the Pleiades, it is still held as sacred. With the indigenous calendars, native people have kept track of important turning points in history. For example, the daykeepers who study the calendars identified an important day in the year One Reed, Ce Acatal, as it was called by the Mexicans. That was the day when an important ancestor was prophesied to return, "coming like a butterfly." In the western calendar, the One Reed date correlates to Easter Sunday, April 21, 1519 the day that Hernando Cortez and his fleet of 11 Spanish galleons arrived from the East at what is today called Vera Cruz, Mexico.
When the Spanish ships came toward shore, native people were waiting and watching to see how it would go. The billowing sails of the ships did indeed remind the scouts of butterflies skimming the ocean surface.
It will be the start of a new era resulting from and signified by the solar meridian crossing the galactic equator, and the earth aligning itself with the center of the galaxy.
At sunrise on December 21, 2012 for the first time in 26,000 years the Sun rises to conjunct the intersection of the Milky Way and the plane of the ecliptic. This cosmic cross is considered to be an embodiment of the Sacred Tree, The Tree of Life, a tree remembered in all the world's spiritual traditions. Some observers say this alignment with the heart of the galaxy in 2012 will open a channel for cosmic energy to flow through the earth, cleansing it and all that dwells upon it, raising all to a higher level of vibration. - 'Steep Uphill Climb to 2012: Messages from the Mayan Milieu' - Steven McFadden
So according to these interpretations we can expect a transformation and good vibrations as a result of a cosmic energy flow. This sounds fantastic to me...maybe we'll receive a few answers to some long ago asked questions as well. However, the facts indicate that the Maya kings and nobles focused more on short-term projects like enriching themselves, building monuments and remaining in power than in predicting the dawning of a new age of good vibrations long after their civilization had collapsed.
Nevertheless, let's look at the prophecies:
The Mayan Prophecies of 2012
An Apocalypse (Greek: “lifting of the veil” or “revelation”) is a disclosure of something hidden from the majority of mankind in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception.
"Both the Hopis and Mayans recognize that we are approaching the end of a World Age... In both cases, however, the Hopi and Mayan elders do not prophesy that everything will come to an end. Rather, this is a time of transition from one World Age into another. The message they give concerns our making a choice of how we enter the future ahead. Our moving through with either resistance or acceptance will determine whether the transition will happen with cataclysmic changes or gradual peace and tranquility. The same theme can be found reflected in the prophecies of many other Native American visionaries from Black Elk to Sun Bear." — Joseph Robert Jochmans
"The person with no previous exposure to the Mayan Calendar will usually initially be surprised by the fact that some people today take such an interest in an ancient calendar. After all, human history has seen a high number of different calendars. Is not then the Mayan calendar just a very specialized subject of interest only to specialists or history buffs? “Why would the world today need another calendar than the Gregorian or Muslim that are currently in use, and why should this be the Mayan calendar?” some may ask.
Well, to begin with most people probably have a much too limited view of the importance of the Mayan civilization, and Native American traditions generally. In fact, at their height in the 5th to 9th centuries AD, the Mayan cities would be among the largest in the world and developed the most advanced mathematics and astronomy of their day. And so, even if the Native American civilizations hardly survived the later contact with the Europeans they were and are the carriers of a significant and irreplaceable part of the global human consciousness.
When we talk about the Mayan Calendar something profoundly different is also meant than just a system to mark off the passage of time. The Mayan Calendar is above all a prophetic calendar that may help us understand the past and foresee the future. It is a calendar of the Ages that describes how the progression of Heavens and Underworlds condition the human consciousness and thus the frames for our thoughts and actions within a given Age. The Mayan Calendar provides an exact schedule for the Cosmic Plan and the unfolding of all things that come into existence. There is now ample empirical evidence for this, something that shines new light on the age old questions of mankind. Things do exist for a reason. The reason is that they fit into the divine cosmic plan. For those that seriously engage in a study of the Mayan Calendar this soon becomes evident and the former materialist world view loses all relevance. The Mayan Calendar is a gateway to the worlds of consciousness which the majority of humanity has been blinded to through the use of false or delusory calendars.
Since everything that exists is an aspect of consciousness, and the Mayan Calendar describes the evolution of consciousness in all of its aspects, no stone is left unturned for the serious student of the Mayan Calendar. All of science is affected, all of religion is affected, all of life is affected. We are here for a reason. Time is no longer equated with money, but with spirit. Time is inspiration!
My own view is that this is the last chance that human beings will have to truly align themselves with the cosmic plan. It is now or never and if you do not think that the Conscious Convergence has something to do with you you probably have not studied the Mayan calendar seriously enough. Hence, there can be no proxies for your participation in the transformation of the world as the calendar comes to an end." - Carl Johan Calleman Ph.D
The Prophecies of the Hopi People
Their prophecies are not written in obscure, archaic language, hidden away in dusty tomes. The Hopi Elders have passed these warnings to subsequent generations through word of mouth and with reference to ancient rock drawings and tablets, keeping track of those that have been fulfilled and paying close attention to warning signs.
The following prophecies, probably the only portion shared with whites at the time, has been reproduced many times and is usually the first glimpse of Hopi Prophecy that one encounters when researching the subject.
Emergence to the Fifth World
"The end of all Hopi ceremonialism will come when a Kachina removes his mask during a dance in the plaza before uninitiated children. For a while there will be no more ceremonies, no more faith. Then Oraibi will be rejuvenated with its faith and ceremonies, marking the start of a new cycle of Hopi life.
"World War III will be started by those peoples who first revealed the light (the divine wisdom or intelligence) in the other old countries (India, China, Islamic Nations, Africa). The United States will be destroyed, land and people, by atomic bombs and radioactivity. Only the Hopis and their homeland will be preserved as an oasis to which refugees will flee. Bomb shelters are a fallacy. "It is only materialistic people who seek to make shelters. Those who are at peace in their hearts already are in the great shelter of life. There is no shelter for evil. Those who take no part in the making of world division by ideology are ready to resume life in another world, be they Black, White, Red, or Yellow race. They are all one, brothers.
"The war will be 'a spiritual conflict with material matters. Material matters will be destroyed by spiritual beings who will remain to create one world and one nation under one power, that of the Creator.'
"That time is not far off. It will come when the Saquasohuh (Blue Star) Kachina dances in the plaza and removes his mask. He represents a blue star, far off and yet invisible, which will make its appearance soon. [Some Hopi spokespersons suggest that Hale-Bopp is the Blue Star.] The time is foretold by a song sung during the Wuwuchim ceremony. It was sung in 1914 just before World War I, and again in 1940 before World War II, describing the disunity, corruption, and hatred contaminating Hopi rituals, which were followed by the same evils spreading over the world. This same song was sung in 1961 during the Wuwuchim ceremony.
"The Emergence to the future Fifth World has begun. It is being made by the humble people of little nations, tribes, and racial minorities. 'You can read this in the earth itself. Plant forms from previous worlds are beginning to spring up as seeds. This could start a new study of botany if people were wise enough to read them. The same kinds of seeds are being planted in the sky as stars. The same kinds of seeds are being planted in our hearts. All these are the same, depending how you look at them. That is what makes the Emergence to the next, Fifth World.'
"These comprise the nine most important prophecies of the Hopis, connected with the creation of the nine worlds: the three previous worlds on which we lived, the present Fourth World, the three future worlds we have yet to experience, and the world of Taiowa, the Creator, and his nephew, Sotuknang." - from 'The Book of the Hopi' by Frank Waters
"The Fourth World shall end soon, and the Fifth World will begin. This the elders everywhere know. The Signs over many years have been fulfilled, and so few are left.
"This is the First Sign: We were told of the coming of the white-skinned men, like Pahana, but not living like Pahana -- men who took the land that was not theirs and who struck their enemies with thunder. (Guns?)
"This is the Second Sign: Our lands will see the coming of spinning wheels filled with voices. (Covered wagons?)
"This is the Third Sign: A strange beast like a buffalo but with great long horns, will overrun the land in large numbers. (Longhorn cattle?)
"This is the Fourth Sign: The land will be crossed by snakes of iron. (Railroad tracks?)
"This is the Fifth Sign: The land shall be criss-crossed by a giant spider's web. (Power / telephone lines or the internet?)
"This is the Sixth Sign: The land shall be criss-crossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in the sun. (Concrete roads and their mirage-producing effects?)
"This is the Seventh Sign: You will hear of the sea turning black, and many living things dying because of it. (Oil spills?)
"This is the Eighth Sign: You will see many youth, who wear their hair long like our people, come and join the tribal nations, to learn our ways and wisdom. (Hippies?)
"And this is the Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of the Hopi people will cease.
"These are the Signs that great destruction is here: The world shall rock to and fro. The white man will battle people in other lands -- those who possessed the first light of wisdom. There will be many columns of smoke and fire such as the white man has made in the deserts not far from here. Those who stay and live in the places of the Hopi shall be safe. Then there will be much to rebuild. And soon, very soon afterward, Pahana will return. He shall bring with him the dawn of the Fifth World. He shall plant the seeds of his wisdom in our hearts. Even now the seeds are being planted. These shall smooth the way to the Emergence into the Fifth World."

Michel de Nostredame or Nostradamus as he is popularly called, was born in France in 1503. He was a kind of pharmacist and a healer and around 1550 he developed an interest in the occult sciences and started writing almanacs. He became famous for these and many people used to come to him for horoscopes and psychic advice. Later he started summarizing his prophecies and writing them in quatrains which is a four lines poetic para in French. He compiled about a thousand of these undated quatrains into a book called “The Prophecies”. Nostradamus wrote in a cryptic style and his quatrains need interpretation. Many have found that most of these predictions have been accurate and his prophecies are highly regarded by astrologers and in many occult circles.
You must keep in mind that Nostradamus predictions are never clear cut and he writes symbolically and hence different people interpret these symbols in various ways. Although this is the case, many of his predictions have been interpreted correctly regarding the second world war, Hitler and so on. This makes 2012 Nostradamus predictions even more interesting to read as most people feel that they can be highly accurate.
According to these interpretations, Nostradamus predicted massive destruction and havoc brought about by a comet. It is not clear whether this comet will strike the earth or will pass very close to our planet, causing massive earthquakes and other cataclysmic occurrences. But many interpreters of his quatrains are united on the opinion that it will be a comet which will come somewhere in December 2012.
One of the quatrains says – “King of terror shall come from the sky. He will bring to life the King of Mongols.” This line has been interpreted that after the coming of the comet China will gain prominence and might start attacking countries to gain supremacy. Nostradamus also gives an indication of the fate of certain nations. “The Huge dog will howl at night, when the great pontiff will change lands”. The great dog is taken to be the United Kingdom by many interpreters, and the line suggests its destruction. The pontiff is taken to be the pope and hence Rome too will be destroyed.
The Book of the Revelation opens with the announcement of its title, and with a benediction on those who give diligent heed to its solemn prophetic utterances:
1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto Him, to show unto His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His angel unto His servant John:
2 who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
Biblical scholars believe that around 90 CE the Book of Revelation was written, the only apocalypse in the New Testament and the "last book of the Bible..."the least read and most difficult." Revelation has had tremendous influence on our culture and history, not only motivating millions of believers but contributing vivid images and phrases to popular culture, from the "four horsemen of the Apocalypse" to the "mark of the beast."
Of course, it's meaning is open to interpretation...just like all of the doomsday scenarios and predictions.
In my opinion, on a collective scale, we are experiencing a time period in which all that has been unconscious may become conscious. All that has been hidden may begin to be revealed.
We live in rare and precarious times...astounding, fragile and mysterious. We are each drops in this sea of humanity, small pieces of the physical and psychic collective. We need to remember our unity by facing our shared challenges. The crises we will face must bring us together to inspire our constructive creativity. There is no way out of the future, only a way through. By finding genuine compassion with each other, we access genuine wisdom...Lon
stcatharinesstandard - The weathered building in St. Catharines' downtown houses a pizza parlor and a 40-year-old mystery.
For about 10 days in February 1970, a series of strange occurrences is said to have plagued 237 Church St, Apt. 1. Pictures flying off walls. Bookcases crashing to the floor without cause. A police officer sitting in a chair that was picked up six inches off the floor.
The kind of spooky stuff made for movies. The root cause of this otherworldly chaos?
Legend has it, an 11-year-old boy, Peter, who remains anonymous to this day, was taken over by a poltergeist.
At the time, the paranormal tale made headlines across Canada and the United States. Even former Tonight Show host Johnny Carson mentioned it in his monologue back then.
Decades later, the story of a ghostly presence wreaking havoc in the modest downtown apartment has endured.
“I think it’s been unshaken, as far as the evidence goes,” said Michael Clarkson, a former reporter who wrote a 2006 book called Poltergeists: Examining Mysteries of the Paranormal.
“I’m not a devotee of the paranormal, but I can’t think of a case that still stands up after 40 years. The witnesses ... no one’s come forward to say it’s a hoax.”
Forty years later, retired police officer Richard Colledge is still a believer.
Now 70 years old, Colledge was one of a handful of officers from the former St. Catharines Police Department to visit the Church Street apartment.
He remembers going into the unit after reports of things moving around on their own. He was 30 at the time. A constable with five years experience who had spent six years before that with the Canadian Armed Forces. And he was skeptical—until it happened.
Colledge said he was standing in the kitchen in front of the sink when a picture came flying off the wall in the adjoining bedroom.
“All I know for sure is when it came off the wall it didn’t fall down on the single bed that was underneath it. It came out and landed on the floor, and I watched it,” Colledge said with a laugh. “I thought it was violating the laws of psychics and gravity.”
He didn’t stay much longer after that.
Colledge wasn’t the only police officer to witness strange goings on at the second-story apartment. Several police notes written by his colleagues at the time chronicled the events.
Const. Bill Weir wrote about witnessing phenomenal occurrences during a visit to the residence on Feb. 10, 1970. He was there with his buddy Const. Bob Crawford.
He called in the city building inspector to see if the odd movements could be explained by structural problems. No luck.
“My only solution to these occurrences is that the boy Peter, whom all the occurrences surround, has been inhabited by a spirit of a poltergeist,” Weir wrote in his investigation report.
“This is the spirit which inhabits the body of a young child about to enter the phase of puberty and has been described as a mischievous spirit that does not generally seriously harm anyone. Briefly, this boy can’t sit on a chair without being thrown off and items are hitting him for no apparent reason. I the writer (Weir) witnessed the boy being thrown on at last a dozen occasions. “
Two days later, Const. Robert Richardson reported visiting the residence with four other officers and a raft of tape recording and movie cameras.
He joined a circle of people in the living room that day. The paranormal-plagued boy, his eight-year-old younger brother, the boy’s parents, two doctors, a local priest and the family lawyer.
Then, the unimaginable.
“At this time, the chair that (name blacked out) was sitting on lifted abruptly about six inches off the floor, and then slammed down again. On examining the chair, there was no explanation for this happening,” he wrote.
Doug Croft was just seven years old when his police officer father, Lebert, told him about his experiences at the Church Street residence. Croft grew up in east St. Catharines, just a few blocks from the cursed apartment.
At the time, most of the guys tried not to broadcast their chance encounter with the dark side. They were worried people would think they were crazy, he said. And they were frightened of what lurked behind the felled bookcases and picture frames.
“They were scared to death,” said Croft, who is a 47-year-old police officer with the Niagara Regional Police.
“At first it was kind of like, ‘Geez I hope I get a call there to see what the hell’s going on. You guys are shooting a line of s---or something.’ But guys came out of there, they were scared to death. It was something weird.”
Clarkson’s brush with the supernatural started with a simple Halloween spook story.
He wrote about the Church Street poltergeist investigation for The Standard in October 1980. Soon after he got a call. It was the boy, then 21 years old.
He was plagued. Not by ghosts, but by family problems. His family was upset that Clarkson had drudged up the past with his story. The memories were painful. During the media storm of 1970, the family was forced to leave town for a few weeks. Embarrassed by the events, the family didn’t want to relive the past. Clarkson had opened old wounds.
The poltergeist-riddled-boy-turned-young-man called Clarkson from a pay phone on Halloween night 1980. He asked if he could come to Clarkson’s Niagara Falls home.
Before long, they were face to face in Clarkson’s office. He was not what the young journalist expected.
“I thought there would be something strikingly different about him,” said Clarkson, a Toronto freelance journalist.
“When he came to my house it seemed to me, initially anyway, that he was like the boy next door. Very clean cut, well dressed, very well spoken, quite sure of himself. The young man didn’t discuss what happened to him that February in 1970. He was there to protect his privacy, his future in St. Catharines. He was worried about what other people in the community, a very conservative community like St. Catharines, might think about him, especially when he’s dealing with young people.”
Over the years, Clarkson saw him a few times. Walking downtown, hand in hand, with a girl. In the pages of The Standard. On a golf course.
Clarkson said the boy has gone on to become an upstanding man in the community. He works with youth.
For all these years, Clarkson, who worked as a daily newspaper reporter for 38 years, has kept the man’s secret.
But decades later, Clarkson, who highlights the St. Catharines case in his Poltergeist book, can’t shake the eerie legacy of that downtown Church Street apartment. His skepticism enduring, Clarkson calls the Garden City poltergeist case one of the best examples of a true ghostly encounter.
“Nobody has been able to shake the facts of the case,” Clarkson said. “In this day and age when so many things have been revealed as hoaxes, this stands up as a real mystery.” - Phantoms and Monsters
This blog was created to feature articles from Spirit Rescue International team members and a formatted periodical that will be published on a bi-monthly basis. I welcome SRI team members to forward spiritually / paranormal themed original articles or attributed material for publication.
Last year, I challenged the readers of ‘Phantoms and Monsters’ to forward their thoughts on ‘The Jesus Theory’. There has been increased speculation that the being known as Jesus of Nazareth or Jesus Christ was different than what the New Testament of the Christian Bible described. Traditional Christians believe that Jesus was born of a virgin mother, grew up as a carpenter's son in Nazareth, baptized by John the Prophet whereupon the Spirit descended upon him, performed miracles, founded the Church, rose from the dead and ascended into heaven, from which he will return. Most Christian scholars today present Jesus as the awaited Messiah and as God, arguing that he fulfilled many Messianic prophecies of the Old Testament.
Although the historicity of Jesus is accepted by most Biblical scholars and classical historians, a few have questioned the existence of Jesus as an actual historical figure. As well, recent archaeological evidence suggests that the traditional story of Jesus' life described in the New Testament may not be accurate. I’m not going to make an argument as to Jesus’ actual historical subsistence but there is enough evidence to conclude that Jesus probably did exist in some capacity.
At the time I asked my readers to express their thoughts, I also posted a poll that asked “Jesus of Nazareth was...” There have been over 500 responses so far and the answer percentages have remained very consistent.
42% - believe Jesus was a human being
6% - believe Jesus was an extraterrestrial being
11% - believe Jesus was a non-specific hybrid being
25% - believe Jesus was a supernatural entity
16% - believe Jesus was a myth
I received 66 email responses to my challenge. Most were very well written and thoughtful narratives that embodied religious doctrine, fundamentalist ideology, scientific scrutiny and personal conjecture. Many people warned me that I didn’t know what I getting myself into and others stated that I had no right or reason to even ask the question. Nonetheless, I want to thank each person who took the time to reply.
Those responders who believe Jesus was a divine being used scripture, dogma and personal opinion to make their feelings known. Some examples were:
“Jesus Christ is God Almighty in human form. He was 100% human, but He was also 100% God.”
“God, who became human, and took on human flesh” (Philippians 2:6-8)
“...it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is,” (1 John 3:2)
“Some people may be born completely aware of their natural divinity, and divine origins. Jesus, perhaps, was one of these people. Perhaps he made it his life goal, to try and teach others of their divine nature. To try and help others to uncover their natural divinity.”
“Jesus was indeed fully human. His life has bisected human history into then and now. The statements of the Apostle’s Creed focus on the humanness of Jesus of Nazareth, as well as his claims to being the Son of God.”
“…my utmost conviction is that Jesus Christ was a fully Human Being of Divine Origin, (as we actually are), but his manifestation or incarnation was of such an intensity, as such an evolved, Super Conscious Entity, that, (to the sincere, unprejudiced investigator), there ultimately cannot be any doubt that He, (as a manifestation of the Ultimate Nonlocal Consciousness), is still fully alive and accessible when one immerses oneself in a meditative state: i.e., an Alpha/Theta Wave brain frequency spectra.”
“I believe that in the same way that human genetics, through the natural reproductive process, produces people with extraordinarily high levels of intelligence, i.e. Albert Einstein, Leonardo DaVinci, Stephen Hawking, or exceptional cruelty i.e. Hitler, Marquis de Sade, we are also capable of producing individuals of exceptional compassion and human relations wisdom. I believe that Christ was one of those people, notwithstanding the inevitable embellishments to his life story.”
Carlo Crivelli's "Annunciation," 1486.
A UFO-like object in the sky shines a beam of some kind down on Mary's head.
On the other hand, those responders who doubt the Biblical accounts and consider Jesus was something other than a human being or simply a myth stated the following:
“He was born a man, to a human mother who had never had intercourse. The sheer ludicrousness of this happening can only mean that it was devised by an outside source. Since without modern medical intervention, a virgin cannot be impregnated without penetration. (I am sure that there is a near negligible chance of some acts of foreplay resulting in the possibility of a pregnancy, but for all intents and purposes, we will assume that this was not the case.) So, since the father was not human, this inevitably means that Christ was not fully human; he was the Son of God. More amazingly still, not only was he the Son of God but he was God. The theory of the Holy Trinity claims that he was even more than this: Father, Son, and Spirit. This is and of itself defies all that we know to be possible.”
“There is more than enough evidence to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that, if the Bible is true and the miracles of Christ did truly occur, it is the most extensive example of paranormal activity that we have to date. And Christ, being the center of all the events, must be the catalyst, making him intrinsically more than human.”
The evidence for any of these theories is mostly anecdotal and based on emotion and core beliefs. The holy scriptures are considered the word of God to Christians and that’s all the confirmation they need. So, let’s look at the enlightened word of the gospels.
Sandro Botticelli's "Mystical Nativity," 1501.
Something huge and saucer-shaped is in the sky above the manger
with a circle of winged beings floating beneath it
When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus. – (Matthew 1:24-25)
The gospel of St Matthew opens the New Testament with a frightening visit from a flying being who descends from the stars to proclaim an amazing message to terrified shepherds attending their flocks. “Behold, a virgin shall be with child and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God is with us.”
Matthew declares "When Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the King, behold, there came wise men from the East to Jerusalem, saying, 'where is he who is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the East and have come to worship him.'"
The birth of Jesus of Nazareth is cloaked in mystery, as well as his death and alleged resurrection. Just as the pillar of light led Moses and the Israelites through the wilderness to the Promised Land, another mysterious object steered those with wisdom to the birthplace of a carpenter's son in the New Testament. The unidentified flying object angle certainly seems to fit the account of this guiding light in the sky. But just what was the Star of Bethlehem? Is it simply a myth or did the bright messenger really exist in the skies over Judaea? For centuries, theologians and scientists have argued over their interpretations of the celestial event, which was recorded only by the apostle Matthew.
Despite all the conjecture, astronomical theories and historical research, we are still no closer to uncovering the truth about the Star of Bethlehem mystery. If it wasn't a comet, nor a planetary concurrence, then one logical hypothesis which can explain a light which behaves as if it is controlled by an intelligence is that it was possibly a spacecraft. If we can accept this explanation, then we must ask…why was it hovering over the stable where Jesus was born?
There are few accounts about the early days of Jesus, especially the circumstances of his conception and birth. Traditionally, March 25th is held as the Day of the Annunciation, when the angel Gabriel announced to Mary that she would give birth to the Messiah or "the anointed one". In May 1999, Israeli historians who researched ancient copies of the Apocrypha stated that one translation of the Virgin Mary's conception after a visitation from God described a chilling tale which was strangely similar to the accounts of people who had undergone gynecological examinations in UFO abduction experiences. When pressed the codex researchers refused to comment further on their intriguing claims. There is little doubt that these historians were advised by the religious authorities to withhold further interpretations of the ancient texts.
From the Gospels, a case could theoretically be built that the biological parents of Jesus were the Father and the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is female…the Goddess of Christianity. A convincing argument can be made that the Holy Spirit is a woman from the Gnostic texts. Was Mary really the biological mother of Jesus? Was the Virgin Mary’s womb used simply as a vessel to incubate Jesus?
“A child will be born to us, a son will be given to us and the government will rest on His shoulders and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).
Isaiah also accurately predicted that "He would be born of a virgin" (Isaiah 7:14)
In our modern age of scientific and medical marvels, it is possible through the techniques of artificial insemination to produce a child in the womb of a woman who is a virgin. Scientists are making rapid progress with the development of artificial wombs which will allow the development of a fertilized egg into an embryo and finally a nine-month-old baby.
Ponder this scenario: a superior race from another world directing the affairs of mankind. This higher race implants the embryo of Jesus into a woman's womb so she becomes a surrogate mother. Jesus is born in a secluded hamlet. As he grows he probably becomes aware of the superior and superhuman talents he possesses. He is a carpenter until he’s thirty then embarks on a mission which will sow the seeds for the most momentous sociological and philosophical transformation in world history. The authorities soon realize that he is not an average prophet...he gives back life to three dead people, stops storms, walks on water, exorcises evil spirits from possessed people, heals the sick and crippled, restores sight to the blind, turns water into wine and feeds the multitudes.
Jesus proves through his supernatural prowess that he was no ordinary human being…he himself said the kingdom or realm he came from was “not of this world”. He also maintained that his father was in Heaven and spent many lengthy periods in the vast isolation of the wilderness, where he may have received the instructions for his revolutionary program to change civilization. Was this the rendezvous point for meeting his extraterrestrial kin? There are many instances of luminous objects descending onto Jesus and shining “divine” rays on him. All of these incidents are interpreted as religious omens among the primitive people of the time, but what can we make of them?
“God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16)
The ultimate evidence that Jesus was no ordinary human came with his physical resurrection, which was mentioned in all four gospels. Jesus was scourged and treated brutally by the Roman guards, who crowned him with thorns, mocked him then crucified him at the ninth hour of the day. A secret disciple of Jesus named Joseph of Arimathea, bravely asked the Roman Governor Pontius Pilate if he could bury Christ. Jesus had to be buried before the Sabbath began at 6 p.m., so that his corpse should not profane the holy day. Pilate was said to be surprised that Jesus had died so quickly but allowed Joseph to take charge of the rabbi's body.
Jesus’ body was wrapped in a fine linen and hurriedly laid in a sepulchre carved out of a rock, and the entrance to this tomb was sealed with an enormous stone. There has been speculation that Jesus was faking death but had only swooned. This was unlikely since a Roman scourging was terrible and traumatic, many victims died before being crucified. The graphic account by John states a soldier named Longinius thrust a spear into Jesus's side while he was on the cross and that 'blood and water' came out. This is a medically accurate description of what happens when the pericardium is pierced, and such a wound is always fatal.
In John 20: 1-9 it reads “The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him. Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. And he, stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying, yet went he not in. Then cometh Simon Peter, following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, And the napkin that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. Then went in also that other disciple, which first came unto the sepulchre, and he saw, and believe. For as yet they knew not the scripture that he must rise again from the dead.”
The Jewish Sanhedrin shuddered when they heard the news of the empty tomb. There were odd accounts that an unusual being in 'snow-white clothes' with a light on its head as bright as lightning had descended from the low dark clouds which bewildered and terrified the Roman soldiers guarding the tomb. This unknown figure that was assumed by the Jewish priests to be a heavenly being proceeded to push away the stone blocking the tomb's entrance with astonishing might. It was later revealed that two unearthly-looking men dressed in white clothes had been seen at the entrance of the tomb by Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome. The three women said one of the strange figures said: “Be not affrighted; ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified. He is not here...he is risen. But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.”
The figures in white simply vanished into the skies as mysteriously as they had appeared. Who or what were these enigmatic beings?
Aert de Gelder's The Baptism of Christ, 1710.
This painting shows John the Baptist with Jesus beneath what appears
to show beings associated with an Extraterrestrial spacecraft in the sky shining rays of light on him.
It is written that the resurrected Jesus later reappeared to his faithful disciples, but seems to have undergone a transfiguration. Although he was apparently solid and tangible enough to eat food and to allow the disciples to touch his wounds, doors did not have to be opened before he could enter a room. He simultaneously projected to different locations on several occasions. Some who had been familiar with him prior to the crucifixion, including Mary Magdalene, did not recognize him right away. On one occasion, Jesus joins his disciples but says “their eyes were holden that they should not know him”. The disciples told Jesus about the crucifixion and of the empty tomb he had been laid in. Jesus then revealed his identity by describing the scriptures that concerned him in great detail. After instilling faith into his followers, he is said to have “ascended” into heaven. They watched in amazement as Jesus rose higher and higher into the heavens until he and the angels in the Merkaba (a celestial vehicle of the angels which is mentioned in the ancient Kabbals) were lost to sight. Is it possible that these “angels” and Jesus were seen boarding a spacecraft?
As I have been reminded in many of the readers’ responses, Christians assert that Jesus was God incarnate, while the Jews maintain that he was merely a prophet. Whoever or whatever Jesus was, there can be little doubt that he was an exceptional and unconventional being. He preached that pacifism was the only way to live. If your enemy should strike you, then you must turn the other cheek and bear the brunt again. This philosophy was totally opposite of the Old Testament's suggestion of “an eye for an eye”. Jesus also told those who wished to follow him to love their enemies and pray for them, and abandon all worldly wealth. Was this the philosophy of a man, a prophet or an extraterrestrial being? The mysteries of his life and teachings are surrounded by religious dogma and superstition…regularly interpreted and morphed by self-made prophets and clergy. An extraterrestrial interpretation is not made to belittle Jesus or his followers in any way, but represents him in an advanced personification in the universe.

The Readers of “Phantoms and Monsters”
I came across several interesting stories recently while reading about Jewish mysticism and rituals. I decided to look further and discovered references to the 'Dybbuk'. To my surprise, much of what is described in Judaism and the Kabbalah in relation to spirits and possession correlates directly and more precise to the spirit rescue work that I have recently undertaken. I would like to share some of this with you...
A dybbuk (pronounced "dih-buk") is the term for a wandering soul that attaches itself to a living person and controls that person's behavior to accomplish a task. The word "dybbuk" is the Hebrew word for "cleaving" or "clinging," and having a dybbuk is not always a bad thing for the human host...though, in most instances this is not the case.
In the Roman Catholic view, a person can succumb to a demon or devil that takes over their body, and the only cure is an exorcism to drive the demon out. In the Jewish faith there is no belief in demonic possession though there can be a possession of a living person by the soul of one who has left the body, but not the world. This soul is seeking a body to possess in order to take care of unfinished business.
In the Old Testament of the Bible, a bad spirit is described as attaching itself to King Saul, the first chieftain of the ancient tribes of Israel. Later, the prophet Elijah is possessed by the spirit of a dead man in an attempt to persuade the prophet into maneuvering the King into a war.
According to ancient Hebrew tradition, demons are beings not much different than humans but were created in the twilight of creation after the humans and right before the end of creation. They are neither of our world, nor of the other world, but a part of both.
The concept of the transmigration of souls developed and found serious followers during the Dark Ages, and by the 12th century it became an established part of the Kabbalah. The 16th century schools of mysticism embraced it. When Hasidism developed, the belief took final hold.
The first form is the Gilgul, which is the Hebrew word for 'rolling,' but means, in this context, the transmigration of the soul. Generally, it is represented as a natural sequence in the life of the soul and simply enters the body at birth, just as the infant is about to leave the mother's body, and prepares to live whatever normal life span has been allotted to it.
The second form of transmigration is the Dybbuk, a disembodied spirit possessing a living body that belongs to another soul. The earliest description was that they may be nonhuman demons...later it was assumed they were the spirits of persons who have died. The dybbuk may be the soul of a sinner, who wishes to escape the just punishment given to it by the 'angels of the grave' who seek to beat them, or to avoid another form of soul punishment...which is wandering the earth. A dybbuk may seek revenge for some evil that was done to it while it lived. The dybbuk may be lost and enter a body simply in order to find a rabbi who would be able send it on it's way. The living host may or may not know that a dybbuk is occupying their body. There may be torment towards the host but this depends on the intent of the possessing soul.
The third form is the Ibbur. The Hebrew translation of the word means 'impregnation.' Ibbur is the most positive form of possession, and probably the most complicated. It happens when a righteous soul decides to occupy a living person's body for a time, and joins, or spiritually 'impregnates' the existing soul. Ibbur is always temporary, and the living person may or may not know that it has taken place. Many times the living person has given consent for the Ibbur since it is always benevolent. The departed soul seeks to complete an important task, to fulfill a promise, or to perform a Mitzva (a religious duty) that can only be accomplished in the flesh.
If the dybbuk is able to encounter a rabbi while possessing a living host, then an exorcism ritual can be performed. The Jewish exorcism ritual is performed by a rabbi who has mastered practical Kabbalah. The point of the exorcism is to heal the person being possessed and the spirit doing the possessing. This is a stark contrast to the Roman Catholic exorcism that is intended to drive away the offending spirit or demon. The intent is to heal the soul that's possessing and heal the person. The ceremony is done on behalf of both.
In some cases, there is a positive aspect to a dybbuk. On occassion a spirit will seek out a person in a time of need to help. This second type of possession is called 'sod ha'ibbur,' which is Hebrew for 'mystery impregnation.' This is a good possession simply because this is a spirit guide. The spirit of someone who has struggled and overcome what you have struggled with and can't overcome will be lent to you from the spirit world to possess and stimulate you, and help you overcome misfortune and what it has been able to in its lifetime. When it's tasks are done and you've managed to achieve what you need in your life, it leaves you.
Some people reach high pinnacles of achievement and they may fall into deep depression. This can be explained as the loss of that spirit. There's a sense of loss, and it's misinterpreted as depression. If the person eventually realizes that, they can be thankful that they had a spirit guide to help them. They need to continue to lift up their own spirit for the remainder of their life.
The concept of dybbuk recognizes that our physical world and the spiritual world can intertwine for both positive and negative reasons. If those intersecting reasons are negative, there is a healing process to mend the collision so both the possessor and the possessed can move on.
NOTE: There have also been times when a dybbuk can haunt or infest an inanimate object, for example the Dibbuk Box, a supposed haunted wine box that has brought terror and regret to several owners over the years...Lon
In February 2011 Spirit Rescue International posted on the Astral Perceptions forum that we can help clients with non-terrestrial entity visitations and infestations. In fact many cases thought by mainstream psychics and mediums to be spiritual possession/attachment/haunting experiences are, in fact, alien or non-terrestrial entity involved situations. SRI has successfully dealt with these unknown entities in a few of our investigations, in particular an alien infestation in Southwest Texas and the Dogman entity in Stephens County, Texas - Part 1 and Part 2.
Irene can probably describe this in better terms but there is a different and distinguishable energy dispelled by these beings. Irene has experienced it in some of her cases as well as in day-to-day locations. I first experienced it in a remote view exercise and was aware of what I was perceiving.
I'm sure that there will be questions and feedback. We see this as an opportunity to help those people who have experienced close encounters and abduction scenarios and have little recourse elsewhere...Lon
Spirit Rescue International™ Providing no-cost professional spiritual help, personal support and guidance
Take the first step towards genuine peace of mind
The following is a very brief explanation of how Spirit Rescue International uses remote viewing when investigating a case:
Scientific Remote Viewing:
There is a wide belief that all humans are composite beings meaning that we have two fundamental sides: a body and a soul. In the language of remote viewing the soul is known as the "subspace aspect" of a person. Once we pass over our physical body is no more, we are no longer composite beings but continue to exist as subspace entities so the physical realm of solid matter is both separate from and connected to subspace.
Remote viewing is natural, involving a deeply settled mind and always works best when it is not being forced, some say that seers of time long ago were our first astronauts being able to go into a relaxed state and allowing their minds to drift across the universe to perceive what was there with much accuracy.
The intelligence of the soul the subspace mind sees and processes data differently from the physical mind. It is a common mistake when doing this type of remote viewing to believe that you leave your body in no way doe's this happen. What actually happens when you use your subspace mind you are shifting your awareness from one place to another, you are not inducing an altered state of consciousness instead you are following a set of procedures that allows you to shift your attention from one area your intelligence to another.
Being who we are, we need to interpret the data perceived by our subspace aspect into what we can understand (pictures symbols and words). Scientific remote viewing assists the progress of this translation. If we were without a soul remote viewing would be impossible as the conscious mind needs direct physical contact to perceive things. When remote viewing the occurrence is not confined to just visual pictures, hearing, sight, taste, touch and smell come into it and play an important part.
Scientific remote viewing always centers on a target this can be anything or anyone that we need information of. A session starts by executing a set of procedures starting with what is called target coordinates. Target coordinates are basically two random produced four digit numbers (some like to use five...SRI prefers four) these numbers are assigned to the target. The remote viewer does not know what target these numbers symbolize but the subspace mind instantly knows the target as soon as it receives the numbers.
Scientific remote viewing has five phases which follow one after the other during the session, each phase brings the viewer closer to the target.
Remote viewing was used back in the 1970s during the cold war, the United States of America discovered that the Soviet Union was using psychics for purposes of their own and in turn the USA started to train their own team.
Later it developed into what was known as remote influencing, where attempts were made to alter the way of thinking of predominant leaders around the world. It had become a psychic weapon and at this point many remote viewers decided that they did no longer want to be part of it.
Remote viewing is still being used today in secret by many countries and still many choose to deny it. Remote viewing has had some very good results in helping to find kidnapped hostages back in the 1980s and 1990s, also in locating weapons of mass destruction. Currently large corporations often employ the use of remote viewers to spy on their competitors.
Although we have only touched the surface in explaining the protocols of remote viewing, at Spirit Rescue International we are proud to be the first organization of our kind to use this ability in helping people and families who experience hauntings, possessions, etc. With the use of remote viewing we are able to perceive where the problem lies, if it is a modern day haunting or something from the past. The use of remote viewing allows us to transcend time to track back where the problem originates and find the easiest and safest way to clear it.
Psychic Remote Viewing:
Imagine that feeling of drifting along watching the world go by...like seeing the scenery drift past while sitting on a train although, in this case, there is no train. Everything moves so fast unless you mentally slow it down. Concentration - holding the scene is of utmost importance. One lapse and all is lost. As in SRV the conscious mind cannot be allowed to take over. Unlike in SRV this method of remote viewing does not offer you control of what you are seeing. In SRV the viewer is given directions by a monitor. You can attempt to get to your target but this is not always possible no matter how much 'tuning in' you try. The feeling is much the same as SRV and at the end, when the viewers returns to reality, an overwhelming sensation of enjoyment and excitement exists. You realize you have spanned time and space. Some viewers accomplish this state through meditation. Irene Allen-Block, the founder of SRI, has mastered the ability 'to turn it on' when and where she wants.
