Lunar Eclipse Photos (August 2007)

John and I woke ourselves up at 2 a.m. and dragged ourselves outside to watch the lunar eclipse last night. It was very cool – it really did turn a reddish hue and I can see why it seems like the moon turns a blood red! I took a few photos during different phases of the eclipse and with different camera settings – you can see the four best ones below:

Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull

If you’ve been around a few metaphysical websites or books or people, you’ve probably heard about the mystery of crystal skulls. Some of the more amazing and priceless skulls, in particular, the Mitchell-Hedges crystal skull, has been out of the public eye for the last ten years, but since the last caretaker has died, the new caretaker is bringing it out again!

I want to add a few notes about the mysteries of the skull, which has intrigued me since the first time I heard about it. (I think author Mellon Thomas-Benedict was talking about his experience with the skull, putting his third eye to the skull’s third eye and having an amazing psychical/energy experience, although for the life of me I can’t remember the specific details!) Anyway here are some cool factoids from the information we received: It was discovered on January 1, 1924 in the ruins of a Mayan City in Belize, called Lubaantun, city of the fallen stones. Scientists examined the skull in the laboratories of Hewlett Packard and discovered that the skull was made from one piece of crystal (quality clear quartz), but with several lenses built in it that allows light to flow through the skull in special ways. It’s an anatomically correct model of a human skull, a female of the Mongoloid race. To this day they’re still not sure how it was made!

So, if you’ve been waiting for a chance to see the skull, and can create the cash for admission, the Event is October 4-7, 2007, in Sedona, Arizona. Click here for more information about seeing the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull.

Apparition or Astral Form

Last night, I had a fairly restless sleep. It was one of those nights where I just couldn’t find a comfortable sleeping position. At one point I saw a distinct apparition forming above Kristen. It was bright green in color and the head and shoulders were distinctly visible, but the face and other details were still too vague to see. I was so surprised by the visage that I thought I said “Hello.” out loud, but Kristen only remembers some sort of grunt. As soon as I made the noise though, the apparition disappeared. The details that I could see were that it had long hair, pulled back with a hairline and forehead just like Kristen’s. So I suspect that what I saw was actually Kristen’s astral double forming.

Stargazing during Perseid Meteor Shower 2007

I actually caught a photo of a shooting star during the Perseid Meteor Shower last night! I had the loose intention of catching one, but I had no idea how I was really going to do it. Since I was just taking 30 second exposures of the general patch of sky where the meteors were showing whenever I had the impulse, it was definitely more of a magical creation than anything I did deliberately. As a matter of fact, I didn’t even see this streak when it happened – I didn’t know I’d captured it until I’d downloaded the images to my computer and started looking through them! Intention works! 🙂

Car Dream Synchronicity Prediction Creation

I didn’t really remember most of the details of the dream I had last night, they slipped away much too quickly, but I remembered this old, old car, much like the one Monty Burns drives in the Simpsons (1920’s era) – it was owned by this old guy, and it was a tan color, very well maintained/restored. A few hours later, while stopped in traffic at a red light in town, I watched the same exact car drive through the intersection and go on its way – a tan 1920’s car – although there was a different man driving it. I’ve never seen a car like this in town before, and in general, there aren’t any of these types of classic cars regularly on the road.

The situation with the car in the dream was different than how I experienced the car in this waking reality. It’s an interesting sort of bleed-through though, with an interesting process of translation going on with each experience. Although this event didn’t have much emotional impact on me beyond a “Huh! How about that!” reaction, these types of experiences let me know that I’m paying attention, at least in some ways – a nice affirmation or encouragement. Neat!

A note: I wasn’t sure whether to call this a dream prediction, a synchronicity, or a creation, as you can tell by the title of this post. Sometimes it seems like after you’ve been working metaphysically for a while, the line between those definitions starts to get a little blurry! 🙂
