Re: Tsunami from outer space. Prepare yourself for unimaginable destruction.
A good friend of mine saw the exact same thing about 6 months ago. He described it as looking like a huge ripple, like a cloak that was part viisible and part invisible which seemed to cover most of the sky, beyond huge! It was silent, was there one moment and then gone. hf

This may sound mad but it was like, kinda like...The sky was cracked almost. Like what i was seeing wasn't our sky...it was odd and there was a really eerie feeling going on, but i guess that's just human nature when faced with something unknown.



Last night I was sitting out where I can see a wide swatch of sky to the south. It was a beautiful, steamy evening with a big full moon and an awesome sky filled with mid-level undulatus clouds (rows and rows of thin patches of clouds arranged in regular patterns) which always give the sky an interesting texture.

As I sat there I saw movement in the sky that I can only describe as what I would imagine a cloaked form moving by, only the camouflaged edge of the object would show any deviation from the patterns in the sky.

Mind you I was not thinking about anything remotely like this at the time. I was so glad to finally be able to be outside after a week of enervating 110°+ weather, and was so pleased to have a intricate show of clouds to marvel at.

If it was not just my imagination, then the truth of it would be astounding, because the size of it would be enormous, encompassing perhaps 45° in the sky.

I gave little thought of it after that, until I read your post.

Very curious.

I find it interesting that our skies have been covered most of the time with smoke all summer, and it is very difficult to see anything at night. Lots could be going on up there and we would not have been able to see it.

Re: Tsunami from outer space. Prepare yourself for unimaginable destruction.
This may be what the original poster was trying to warn everyone of:

"I'm a Junior majoring in physics at the Georgia Institute of Technology, one of the best in the country. I will keep this concise.

During my advising session, I was asking him all sorts of questions to pass the time as we talked about possibly getting a Masters there. We talked about politics, life on other planets

I then asked him about 2012. He said that theory is hog wash, the galactic plane is too wide from the nuclear bulge caused by Sagitarius A (the Milky Way's black hole) to have any immediate effect on our Solar System. I know you crazy asses want to believe otherwise, but my professor has credentials, namely CalTech and Stanford post doc, and I believe him before any one else, regardless of a crazy woo woo's conviction. But what he said after, is what startled me, he said, I quote, "We need to be worrying about the next months than the next 4 years".

I asked him what he meant by that. He said he and his research group calculated a weird disturbance about 50 parsecs away from our solar system that is just now reaching us (apparently, this event happened many, many years ago). A Huge Microwave/Gamma/X-Ray burst. Now, these these things happen more often more than we know, but we're usually unaffected because space is just too vast, and the energy flux is proportional to distance squared, so by the time it reaches us, our magnetosphere can deal with the radiation. But he said this one was different. He stated it was laser-like beam of particles headed directly to our solar system. Now laser like doesn't mean the diameter of a pencil, no, this laser beam has the diameter of half our solar system. Normally when a star emits radiation, it does so spherically, so it's spread. But somehow, this one, from whatever created it, managed to concentrate the radiation is a very tight bundle.

I asked him "You're awfully calm about this, are we going to die?" He replied..."Eh, space is a turbulent place, factors change. The first wave packet would reach us around January, followed by another some many years later"(he said he couldn't calculate it due to the fact the first energy packet is in the way of the second). I asked him "is this that crisis they are talking about happening?". He said "It could be, this first wave has particle energies in the GeV, multiply that by, trillions of particles, and our atmosphere will saturate, and once it saturates, will filter down to our terrestrial electronics, frying anything with a transistor" The only reassuring thing he said was "But, the sun has the ability to filter alot of this out with a CME we're theoretically predicting to occur around that time. The particle will collide and lose much of their energy."

We talked some more, but essentially, what he was saying if Earth is hit by this, full on, we'll get thrown back to the stone age. If the sun interferes, we'll be spared the rod, to a certain degree. Regardless, I think this is what's going to happen. It can't go to the news because 1, it's still too theoretical and 2, we may get lucky. Plus, if it does happen, I guess it won't matter if you knew about it beforehand anyway, no normal man could financially shield his electronics from such energetic particles (look up quantum tunneling).

Take this what you will."

We don't have long to wait to find out.....

I am not quite sure what you are trying to prove with that but I didn't say I didn't believe in anything woo woo, anymore, I just said that all these predictive threads have made me much more wary and careful what I accept as truth.

Most of what I see and experience has very natural explanations. Some of what I see does not. Still trying to figure those out.

This thread was a fun ride, but it also serves as a warning that the disclaimer on the bottom of the GLP page is true:

NEW ENERGIES COMING INTO OUR SECTOR
by Lorae Ireland

The negative ET's and their "human" lackeys are desperate right now and will resort to any outrage. They intend to take as many of us as they can down with them. Their time is almost up, due to the change and raising of energies coming in. Either Earth is passing through them or they're coming from space, but even the scientists are taking notice:

Richard Hoagland wrote a fairly decent article about the changes occurring in our Solar System at:
[link to www.enterprisemission.com]


The lower vibrations simply will not be able to exist in these higher energies.

In 2003, Daniel Sheehan gave a talk (to a select group from Harvard Business School yet!) warning of these new and higher energies coming in. The gist of his talk was that we must raise our consciousnesses to the point where we can communicate with the highly evolved and benevolent Space Beings (see [link to unveiling.18.forumer.com] )
and also to be able to survive these new conditions. He had been chief counsel for the Jesuits, so he most likely knew what he was talking about. Recall that the Vatican has a new telescope on Mt. Graham in Arizona, directly wired to the offices in Rome. Something is up, I'd say...

These higher "frequencies" will be deadly to our lizard buddies, as well as to all "humans" who do not exist above about 230 or so on Dr. Hawkins' "Scale of Consciousness". "Power vs. Force: The Hidden
Determinants of Human Behavior" by David Hawkins

Getting to that 230 level isn't all that difficult; simply behaving ourselves and being kind to each other will do the trick. (The original "Christian" teachings...)

The Earth is moving into a section of space where the energies are higher, and, at the same time we're regularly getting smacked with GRB's of great intensity. (Maybe that's why the Earth is heating up from the inside?). We, all of us, absolutely MUST adapt to that higher vibration or we're toast. It's that simple. That's why you will see me constantly writing on the theme of making fundamental internal change.

Furthermore, we wouldn't have the lizards destroying us right now if we were, as a group, more enlightened. It won't do any good to "fight" them if we ourselves stay mired in Earth Consciousness (below 200 on Dr. Hawkins' scale ). All that will happen is that we will get more of the same, around and around again. Those who resist this idea can rant and rave all they like; it's just how it is, and their concepts of staying right where they're at won't change anything. Consider the dinosaurs..

Also, think of the enormous efforts the Lizards are putting out to drag and keep the populace at a lower level of functioning. They are using Fear, Rage and Despair at this time. Why not? It's always worked before. It's possible that their greatest concern is that we will start rising, rather than dropping down below the 200 level, which is where they can control us..

The Hour-Glass is Almost Empty, and IT’S LATER THAN WE THINK!
By Lorae Ireland

We think that war is coming, war between the U.S. and the whole Muslim World, a war of Armageddon. We think we need war to stimulate the U.S. economy out of a (manufactured) recession.

We think that global warming is inevitable, even if we stopped injecting hydrocarbons into the atmosphere today. We think that the further degradation of the environment is unstoppable because of the continued growth of global population and technology.

We think that, due to this human disturbance, the Earth will react. She will writhe with pain, moving the tectonic plates, creating earthquakes, volcanoes, storms and violent weather changes.

These are our present beliefs, but this is a false paradigm: The reality is that we are more powerful than we have been led to believe. We have a choice: we can choose the way of destruction, following the mass consciousness, like lemmings to the sea, or, we can envision that all will be well and that we will soon inherit a peaceful world of abundance and harmony.

The memories of such a world are still with us, a beautiful time of gods and wonders, the ages of myth in our collective unconscious. Then, negative beings came to Earth. They were soulless with no hearts, but not lacking in technical cleverness. Having rampaged for eons throughout the galaxies, destroying civilizations and planets, their last stop before Earth had been Mars. They turned a planet of mountains and waters into the barren waste we visit today.

Now, these same negative beings are using TV and other media to drag us down from out true heritage as children of God. They revel in filth and pain, the filth of pornography and torture, the pain of addiction and war, because these horrors feed them. With videos and increasingly violent movies, the old reptilian area of the brain is stimulated, desensitizing the Spirit.

Ugly cities and ugly music demoralize our children, who are especially sensitive, having come so recently from God. Feeling unwanted, unloved, helpless and generally awful, our young people turn to drugs and alcohol to anesthetize their pain. This is another victory for those who wish our destruction. Even unseen waves of controlling frequencies may be bombarding us. If we succumb to the mass brain-washing, we can be dragged down with them when their time comes. They know that their time is almost up, but, being spiteful, they want to take as many of us with them as they can.

We, dear human brothers and sisters, are the prize.

Of course, given their history, they intend to do the same to Earth as they did to Mars, but a decision has been made at some higher level that they will not be allowed to destroy this planet.

However, if we are to stay here, we have to do our part: Don’t sit back and wait, doing nothing. Hold a positive vision of the world manifesting now!

From first grade on we’ve been taught to obey. Our education has been an exercise in acceptance of authority. Some are taught to lead and control, so long as they bow to the dictates of others above them, while the many are taught to be controlled. This is a false way. Do not accept it. Granted, it’s been in place for thousands of years, but the time has come for a more enlightened point-of-view.

This change has already begun: It’s becoming no longer fashionable to be the exploiter of other beings or the environment. Hierarchy and top-down control is not acceptable. Consensus and equal discussion is more and more the norm, even in the business world, which has never evinced democratic principles. (How could we ever have believed that we had a government of the people when much of material supply was controlled by a few? What kind of freedom was that?) Instant, world-wide communication on the internet has helped bring about a change. (Our controllers would like to stop this, but it’s too late. For once, we’ve out-smarted them, at least for a short time, which is enough.)

To effect the coming upset, only a very few are needed, perhaps as few as twelve people in the whole world.

Groups of three or more who come together to pray for peace and love are more powerful than all the armies. This is the greatest truth. Many a battle has been won by the decision of a few at a crucial point, when all seemed lost, not to give up. Don’t accept the cataclysmic scenario. Don’t give up!

As we struggle for homes, food and the necessities of life many of us feel that we have neither time nor energy for the life of the Spirit. This will change soon if we ask. We must ask – nothing will happen without our request. Our world will then be transformed into a place of abundance and brotherhood. The hatreds, fears and greed of this belief system will be no more. We’ve come to the changing point, and, at this point in time, we have the god-like power to create our future, requiring only our desires, imaginations, thoughts and spoken words.

Because some are demonstrating a belief and faith in the coming era of perfection, the Beings of the higher worlds will soon effect a transformation. We have no concepts to describe this coming change:

[link to i18.photobucket.com]
Isaiah13:10,13:13 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: The sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine…and the earth shall remove from her place..


Matthew 24:40: Then shall two be in the field: the one shall be taken, and the other left.



We don’t have to wait for the year 2012, nor do we have to cling to the belief in some kind of “lift-off.” This world is ours! Now, in this pivotal point of enormous change, we must be conscious of our powers and responsibilities. Nothing will come to us without effort. By faith, imagination and writing, speaking or doing, we create our world. With the in-breath we take in what is. Then, in the moment before the out-breath, we imagine what will be. Exhaling, we create for ourselves the reality for the next inhalation. Also, in the mornings, bless with your hands clear spring water in the first rays of the rising sun. Drink this crystalline liquid for regeneration and clarity and to raise your frequencies so as to be able to withstand the coming changes:
"Dawn Water" [link to unveiling.18.forumer.com]


“I have water to drink that ye know not of.” Spoken by the Christed One, somewhere in Luke, I believe.

We have hidden abilities that are now developing. In this coming new world, we will no longer believe in aging and death. Our consciousness is immortal, and, our bodies can be, if not immortal, much longer-lived than at present. Even the aging effects we now accept will be reversed if we wish. We will hear new sounds, see new colors, feel new vibrations and smell new smells. Some are already experiencing this. As our physical senses increase, mental telepathy will become fine-tuned. Tempered to each other, we will have more tolerance for differences.

Isaiah 31:7,65:17 For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver and his idols of gold…And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places. For behold, I create a new heavens and a new earth.

I realize that this all sounds fantastic and like wishful thinking. But what is more fantastic than that we have been given this unique planet to live on as it whirls though space, a small part of vast systems of galaxies?

The mass media is presenting (some subliminally) what our oppressors now want us to think. Communicating contrary ideas is more dangerous to them than we realize. Isaiah spoke of a time when the veils (of illusion) would be lifted.

Isaiah 25:7 And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the veil that is spread over all nations.

Isaiah 29:18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.

Isaiah 35:5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.

Isaiah 44:18 They have not known nor understood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand.

Some are already experiencing this, and are aware that many who appear human are not human at all. These beings do not have our best interests in their absent hearts. Soon, many of us will truly “see.” When this happens, don’t be frightened. The lizard-beings have been with us for thousands of years, and the time has come to stop living in illusion. We are the children of the Most High, greatly beloved and cherished beyond finite understanding. It’s time to remember who we are!
[link to i18.photobucket.com]

This beautiful world is our home, and we are now claiming our true birthright of stewardship. This was meant to be a world of freedom and love. Let those who degrade freedom by exploitation and hurtfulness be the ones to leave! We’re staying!

A Meditation. May 7, 1991, Southern Oregon

OH BELOVED;
As the smoke from morning fire does rise to the heavens, so my thoughts and yearning to know God do rise through the clouds and sacred early rays.

And I hear the great choir sending us rhythmic waves of Love, the energy of time in this world. Gold and white, blinding light, are the colors of these great ones, their thoughts and ours combining to create again a morning at the beginning of time.

Time, being, thought and breath are as one. The music of the angels create the movement we perceive, the life of our world.

Our elder brothers, ever present as the spirits of the varied birds of morning, do speak to us in song--a song of gladness, a song of happy creation. It lifts my heart. They sing of their brothers in the ocean, the whales and dolphins, whose mighty sounds do broadcast to the universe the state of our world. Nothing is hidden. Every thought is know instantly through the liquid medium of space, as the waves of perception do manifest throughout the being of a jellyfish. All is known.

Know ye, then they great responsibility in BEING. A thought, a breath, a word, reverberates throughout the universe like waves in a pond.

Thou art one with God, within the mighty one, and a manifestation of nameless glory. Thou art as wonderful as a drop of morning dew, glowing with the light and power of the morning sun, a crystalline sphere of wisdom, a door to the universe. Enter then, through this door and SEE.

A BAD CASE OF THE WILLIES
By Lorae Ireland

I got an "AH HA!" when I read the "Shadow" article. Here goes:
"...our repressed "Shadow-Self" projects out into our present realtiy. Not only that, we create the construct of "The False Ego" as a reaction to that repression. AND, both are very much related to our present predicament vis-a-vis our reptilian oppressors/controlers.

It's possible that by changing ourselves, we can become free from this nightmare. SNIP "

[link to unveiling.18.forumer.com]
So it took me seventeen years to "get" this!

I'd written back in 1991:
QUOTE
Therefore, our False Egos are easily used and controlled by the larger Evil that appears to exist. Now, can this larger Evil manifest in this world other than through humans?

[spirits}"Yes--unseen demons which can possess animals and matter."

Why do humans have this weakness? Why are humans here? What in the hell is going on?

[spirits]"INITIATION. Only until you are tired of it, then you can
let it go."

I'm TIRED OF IT. But I can't seem to let it go. I don't like it
here. Goddammit, let me OUT! "

[spirits] Be careful what you ask for."

OK. Not yet. Sorry. Strike that.

So--we must eliminate the False Ego within ourselves or we're dead ducks. We have been led to believe that this False Ego is our very being, that it is us. When, in fact, it is something alien with us that will destroy us. Help! I'm confused!

[spirits] "No, you're not. You're only beginning to think."

Did Evil insert the False Ego in us? Or did we foolishly request it? What? How did something so destructive get within our very being and consciousness? Are we humans basically flawed, but too good to throw away? Are we only useful as slave labor in a penal colony? Is our very flaw, the False Ego, what is used to control us?" END QUOTE

Ha, not only to control us, but to CREATE the controllers!

Yee Haw! I THINK I'VE GOT IT!

NASA warns of 'space Katrina' radiation storm

Ill solar winds blow nobody any good

By Lewis Page •

Posted in Space, 7th January 2009 09:14 GMT

A study funded by NASA has flagged up yet another terrible hazard for those no longer able to get excited about nuclear war, global pandemics, terrorism, climate change, economic meltdown and asteroid strike. Top space brainboxes say that even if the human race survives all those, there is a serious risk of civilisation being brought crashing to its knees by a sudden high-intensity solar radiation storm.

Beware the space equivalent of Hurricane Katrina.

The new study, carried out for NASA by the US National Academy of Sciences, might tickle the palate of even the most jaded disaster connoisseur.

"Whether it is terrestrial catastrophes or extreme space weather incidents, the results can be devastating to modern societies that depend in a myriad of ways on advanced technological systems," says Professor Daniel Baker of Colorado Uni, an expert in atmospheric and space physics who led the report's authors.

In essence, the report, which can be downloaded in pdf here (free registration required) says that sooner or later there will be a solar storm much more powerful than any seen so far in the age of high technology. Such events have occurred in the past, but as the human race then had very basic electrical power grids (or none at all) and made no use of satellites, it didn't matter.

The next space radiation biggy, however, will hit a human civilisation which is becoming more and more dependent on satellites for essential communication and navigation tasks, and whose electrical grids are much more widespread and heavily stressed. The impact of a bad geomagnetic spike would be somewhat as though an unbelievably powerful electromagnetic pulse bomb - of the sort favoured by movie villains but not yet available - had gone off:

While a severe storm is a low-frequency-of-occurrence event, it has the potential for long-duration catastrophic impacts to the power grid and its users. Impacts would be felt on interdependent infrastructures, with, for example, potable water distribution affected within several hours; perishable foods and medications lost in about 12-24 hours; and immediate or eventual loss of heating/air conditioning, sewage disposal, phone service, transportation, fuel resupply, and so on ...
Open access on the transmission system has fostered the transport of large amounts of energy across the power system in order to maximize the economic benefit of delivering the lowest-cost energy to areas of demand. The magnitude of power transfers has grown, and the risk is that the increased level of transfers, coupled with multiple equipment failures, could worsen the impacts of a storm event ...

In summary, present U.S. grid operational procedures ... are unlikely to be adequate for historically large disturbance events.

The impact on satellites would be even more severe, as spacecraft have less shielding from the Earth's atmosphere - and in some cases from the magnetosphere. In particular, the present Global Positioning System (GPS) sat constellation, used by almost every navigation system in the world, is regarded as highly vulnerable to a solar event - though new satellites are to go up shortly equipped with a backup signal which will allow errors to be bowled out.

In general, however, the assembled brainboxes considered that a solar event was a much greater threat to essential space infrastructure than any evil foreign power - for instance - could possibly be. The US military has previously warned of the risk of a "space Pearl Harbour" - a devastating surprise attack against America's space presence, which could leave the world's sole superpower blinded and crippled. According to the National Academy, though, the USA should forget about a space Pearl Harbour and worry instead about "a space Katrina, a storm that we should have been prepared for but were not".

The report mentions technological solutions to most of these possible ills, but says that they mostly aren't in place (apart from the GPS alterations). According to Richard Fisher, head of NASA's Heliophysics division:

"To mitigate possible public safety issues, it is vital that we better understand extreme space weather events caused by the sun's activity."

I think we are all safe.

This was to have taken place in 2007 so if it came we missed it.

Extreme Gamma-ray Burst 02.20.2009



February 20, 2009: The first gamma-ray burst to be seen in high-resolution from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope is one for the record books. The blast had the greatest total energy, the fastest motions and the highest-energy initial emissions ever seen.

"We were waiting for this one," said Peter Michelson, the principal investigator on Fermi's Large Area Telescope (LAT) at Stanford University. "Burst emissions at these energies are still poorly understood, and Fermi is giving us the tools to understand them."
