Concerning project blue beam, I heard that these towers are placed at certain points along the ley lines that criss cross the world, this could be how they are influanceing our thoughts, There was a book called Harmonics, it talks about the towers, why and how they are placed, very interesting. I think its possible our subconscouss travels by way of these ley lines or connected to it in some way, if they can be intercepted and reprogramed, then how do we know we arnt just picking up pre planed messages. Thats why I think its important to discover ones self, I think we have the tools inside us to correctly interprtate the correct frequantcy, but we must be aware of ourselfs first, recongnize our two fold being, flesh and spirit.

I love blue has always been my colour, as well as green.

Like the Martariki post as well, seems like we got an interesting time ahead.

Awakening to the Dream: May 27 Portal Offers Healing and Transcendence
By DL Zeta


A rare astrological configuration appears on the horizon this coming week, ushering in a new and greatly expanded time on Planet Earth. In coming days, Neptune, Jupiter and Chiron rendezvous in Aquarius to create a new unique portal offering healing and transcendence at all levels. This alignment will weave throughout coming weeks, lifting veils between dimensions and making fifth-dimensional consciousness more accessible than ever before.


In addition to providing opportunities for healing, this portal opens new doorways of perception, allowing glimpses into future timeframes; it strengthens and enhances psychic abilities; opens access to new forms and levels of abundance; and sets in motion a cultural renaissance that seeds the New Time prophesied by seers throughout history.


Following on the heels of the powerful Wesak opening in early May, this portal expands the earlier initiation, allowing those who choose to do so to step more fully into the New Time. The key to stepping fully into this gateway is to embrace every wound, every experience, and open to the messages they contain. If you are willing to step past the physical trappings of your life, the spiritual blueprint of your mission is revealed during this time. This blueprint contains a lens that brings the plan for your life into focus and helps you enter direct communion with your higher self and aspects of your being that exist throughout time.

There will be a broad range of responses to this energetic vortex. Some will make use of these energies to go beyond anything they have imagined while others will flounder, sinking deeper into disillusionment and despair. Some will not be affected at all.


This portal spurs those already on their spiritual path to step into new levels of joy, creativity and abundance, while taking quantum leaps toward transcendence and world service. It allows the newly-awakened to advance rapidly on their path. While the energies of this portal may trigger times of unrest in sleeping consciousness, it will offer opportunities for all of humanity to step into the next phase of evolutionary growth.


Becoming World Servers


Those who have been following their spiritual path for some time will find unique opportunities for understanding and fulfilling their spiritual purpose during this opening. Many who have been teaching, sharing and channeling will now step into an even stronger role as direct conduits for spirit.


The willingness to step into the next level of your mission is an important aspect of this portal. You will be asked to step into new levels of joy, new levels of self-responsibility, new levels of compassion and spiritual communion. The fact that this conjunction happens in Aquarius says every facet of this opening is based in global service. Every step you take, every effort you undertake, will be intricately linked with lifting up the Earth and all its inhabitants.


The Drive toward Meaning and Purpose


Many who are newly awakened will develop a sudden fascination for all things spiritual. This may be accompanied by a strong drive to find a deeper meaning and purpose in life. Many lightworkers will be called upon to serve as guides for increasing numbers of these awakening souls.


While many lightworkers followed a natural progression in their journey of awakening, developing spiritual awareness over decades, you will now see many beginning this process with the need to come on board quickly, entering resonance with shifting energies in a brief timeframe. This will signal a need for record numbers of mentors and life coaches to assist with the transition. As a result, many who have considered themselves students will be asked to step up to the plate as guides and teachers.


The Dream of the Sleeping World


There will be those around you who don't perceive or embrace the energies of this portal. Many of these will struggle in resistance. It is important that you allow others to be where they are. This is not the time for arrogance or judgment, but for a deeper sense of acceptance, tolerance and compassion.


Depending on one’s level of healing and evolution, the energies of this portal can affect you in different ways. Those who are sleepwalking through their lives may respond to the energies through escapist patterns and addictions; they may navigate this time through denial, running away from fears, taking their angst and confusion out on others; or other forms of self-sabotaging, dysfunctional behaviors. It may lead to psychological distress and troubled emotions that trigger accidents, illness or reversals of fortune. Some may experience their life circumstances seemingly “falling apart”.


During this time, the level of one’s spiritual development is everything. Those who are directly connected to their soul will be able to embrace their wounds, open to the messages they contain, and undergo healing that allows them to step fully into their spiritual powers and abilities. Those who resist “unseen” realities beyond the physical will manifest challenges designed to help awaken them. Many will experience both the higher and lower expression of this portal in different areas of their life.


A Portal of Spiritual Healing and Awareness


During this opening, spiritual healing and awareness are highlighted. This is a time when "wounded healers” are able to access deeper levels of their own healing and bring new techniques out to share with the world.


Those who thought they had healed and released their wounds will awaken to new levels of healing. This new insight will reveal the message and the hidden plan that sleeps within the wounds, waiting to be discovered. This discovery unlocks the door to quantum evolution of consciousness. It is in this way that this conjunction simultaneously paves the way for healing and expansion of consciousness.


Those who have served as healers will be able to reach deeper understandings of disease and health. They will be able to see through the surface of physical reality to the roots of illness and assist others in understanding the message of their symptoms. Those who have served as intuitive counselors will be able to access fresh insights into the nature of human suffering and open new doors for others to be able to understand and accept themselves. Likewise, those who have followed their path for many years will be called upon to acknowledge their own need for healing, which allows them to become more powerful healers and guides.


The New Cultural Renaissance


It is during this time that new works of art, new writings, channelings and new inventions encoded with energies of the New Time will begin to take form “in the ethers.” As these creations are birthed into physical reality, they will seed a new cultural renaissance. This is a time when creativity itself is understood in a new way. This new vision for art as a form of spiritual messaging will make multidimensional realities more accessible on the Earth plane.


Accessing New Levels of Abundance


This gateway contains opportunities for new forms and levels of abundance. As you gain awareness of the true meaning and nature of spiritual wealth, you are able to remove your focus from old misconceptions and old definitions of abundance. This allows you to place your focus and attention on the true nature of abundance – your spiritual mission. Once you realize you have all that you need within you, you will be able to energize and “bring forth” whatever is called for within the moment. From this place of flowing abundance, there is never any lack or need. You are able to view life from a higher perspective attuned to frequencies where true wealth flows easily and effortlessly. Living life from this spiritual dimension of your existence immensely broadens and enriches your life experience.


Awakening to the Dream


During this time, messages may arrive in dreams and meditation. You may travel more readily into other dimensions, including future timeframes. You may receive future visions and glimpses of future events that bring realization of your destiny. Doorways of perception open to allow the dreamer to awaken to the dream. You may experience “vertical time,” where it seems a month or even a week is equal to a year of linear time. You may undergo mind-expanding experiences and peak states of consciousness. You may experience openings where the channel between your higher self and conscious mind becomes telepathic.


All of this leads to the burning away of the old self, and the awakening to new fields of possibility.


Steps to Accessing the May 27 Portal


The price of admission to this portal of evolutionary opportunity is a willingness to release all that no longer serves your growth and well-being. Behaviors, patterns and beliefs that no longer serve you and all narrow pursuits will become obvious at this time. Anything from the past that needs to be healed and cleared will come up for review. This is a time when you will be able to more easily transcend the dramas and traumas that are part of human existence.


We offer here some steps to making the most of this gateway:


1) Practice awareness in all that you do. Slow down, allow yourself to expand into the beauty of nature. Listen with your heart. Pay attention to the symbols that show up in your dreams and waking life.


2) Revisit your belief system. You may find this the perfect time to develop a philosophy of life. As part of this new perspective, examine what gives you joy. Place more value on being than doing. Expand what gives your life meaning.


3) Practice balance in all things. The new energies may amp up your enthusiasm for all things metaphysical, but keep in mind the need for groundedness. Because this alignment falls in Aquarius -- an air sign -- there is the possibility of becoming caught up in a vision to the extent of failing to take the steps to bring the vision into physical reality.


4) Learn to stand strong in your visions, to trust and believe in their "realness," no matter how fantastic or incredible they may seem. Those who are deeply rooted in physical reality will not embrace visions of a future beyond what they have imagined. Bless them, but don’t allow them to sway you from your mission.


5) Undertake vision quests, spiritual pilgrimages and begin new areas of exploration. Fasts, retreats, new dietary disciplines rich in life force and new spiritual practices are helpful at this time.


6) Prepare for this opening by meditating on the New Time. Set your intentions to open to every facet of your spiritual purpose. Prime your consciousness during meditation.


7) Love your wounds and issues. Love all aspects of yourself. Trust that as you open to the messages they contain, you will step more fully into your role as a world server and healer.


8) Be willing to move beyond who you thought you were and what you have known. This is the time to shed timeworn identities and adopt new ones more closely aligned with your purpose.


9) Make time for silence and solitude each day. Learn to still your mind and enter states of alert listening. This allows you to “download” guidance for the next step of your role in assisting the Earth through coming times of transition.


10) Be willing to allow new levels of love, abundance and joy into your life. Affirm that as an infinite being, you are worthy of the best the universe has to offer.


11) Practice tolerance, acceptance and compassion with everything that comes before you.


12) Stand strong in your trust and faith in the higher order of things no matter what is going on around you.

The Blue Men of the Minch

Folklore tells of a tribe of supernatural sea creatures called the Blue Men of the Minch, who used to inhabit the stretch of water known as the Minch, between Lewis, the Shiant Islands and Long Island.

They were humanoid in appearance with blue skin, kinned with mermen they would swim alongside ships passing the Sound of Shiant in an attempt to lure sailors into the water, and conjure storms to wreck ships. They lived in deep underwater caves in a clan system ruled over by a chief. Like many supernatural creatures they could be beaten with a cunning tongue, and by making sure you got the last word in a rhyme. Many a sea captain is said to have escaped sure disaster with the sharpness of his tongue, and his skill in riddles.

There are a few theories about their origins, it has been suggested that they were fallen angels, and on a more historical note, a folk memory of Moorish slaves marooned in Ireland in the 9th Century by Viking pirates and slave traders.

Re: In Honor of Blue
From the books of the Israelites we have our legends of the Ang (els) but there are other ancient books that describe such spiritual beings. And they are depicted as having a blue tint to their skin. As in the Bhagavad-gita , evidence again supports a very ancient race of a blue skinned race through the stories of Lord Krishna. Instead of being an Ang (el) Krishna was described like that of an ’Avatar’, god or demi-god.


According the the Bhagavad-gita he was a teacher teaching the workings of creation, understanding of a self-realized soul. He taught the people the science of yoga in all its forms - the path of work, the path of knowledge, the path of mysticism, the path of devotion. But for us it is enough to realize that he was always depicted with ’blue skin’. Shiva is also a ’dark blue’

Hi Bear Jude and S -

The Blue Blob

The Chandra X-ray Observatory has found a cosmic “ghost” lurking around a distant supermassive black hole. Astronomers think this high-energy apparition is evidence of a huge eruption produced by the black hole. But this blue blob looks eerily similar to another cosmic blob of gas found by Galaxy Zoo member Hanny Van Arkel, the famous object called Hanny’s Voorwerp. Could the two objects be similar?

Astronomers say the “ghost” found by Chandra is the remains of a diffuse X-ray source, lingering after other radiation from the black hole’s outburst died away. The object, HDF 130 is over 10 billion light years away and existed at a time 3 billion years after the Big Bang, when galaxies and black holes were forming at a high rate.

A Message to the Masters of the Blue Ray -El Morya


Blessings and divine greetings exalted ones! I speak to you as El Morya, Chohan of God's Blue Ray.

I come first to commune with those of you who have volunteered to incarnate on the blue ray of cosmic light and as the divine way-showers of a new era. I come to assist you to harness the new potentials that each of you are here to claim and have put forth in the name of oneness to honor the path of the risen Christ within.

Before long, your outer world will shift to reflect the internal changes that you have worked so long and hard to achieve. Yes, they will be the changes that you have long sought after, yet they will also be the changes that each of you came to ground into the earth's core through the warrior ray of cosmic truth, wisdom and the divine will of God.

I offer this information to you solely as a reminder that those beings of the blue ray have a very special role to play on this planet, at this time, and that you have come first to set up the positions of leadership that your human society so desperately seeks.

In this, those of you who have realized that your role is one of the path-paving pioneer, and the dominion within you is now a clear reflection of that role, you are preparing to step once more into the unknown.

The fluctuating tides that continue to wash over your current planetary affairs are those that have long been proven outworn and those of you who have contributed to this fading reality are those who are becoming the rising leaders of a new day, a new way.

Many blessings of virtue will be bestowed upon you, the new physical guides, for indeed the path that offers much, required much. Those of you who have wholeheartedly mastered the strength of divine will, will be replacing the unseen guides that have guided each of you home, to this very point on your evolutionary journey.

You, of the blue ray, are those who have come to rescind the ill will of humanity and replace it with the Will of God, the glorious and abundant futures for each member of your human society who deems the highest good a righteous endeavor.

Yes, there will be those who denounce the path of unity in search of more proof of the way, yet those who have come specifically to replace the man-made will of separation and strife with the will of Godly abundance, creation and hope, are those who have come to serve in the highest form.

In this, know that the masters of the blue ray will become a predominant voice of the new age.

All voices will blend into the creation of the One Plan in their inherent and signature form, yet the masters of the blue ray have developed the sacred gifts of communication, speech, discernment and clarity of divine will to the point of mastery. Indeed, you will soon discover that there is good reason for this.

Those of you with the roles of divine communication, vocal and otherwise, will begin to attract the platforms, mediums and support for your much needed ventures now that your planet and her people have shifted to an openness and readiness to hear more truth.

Beloved members of the blue ray, you will know yourselves by your name for your name will carry the vibration of this ray most succinctly. Examples of archaic vibrational tones in earth's history are depicted in scripture as singsong just as your name carries a tonal frequency of harmonics that when stated aloud creates the dynamic chords of the color spectrum and resonates at the signature vibration of the color blue.

The Path of the Blue (First) Ray

In the history of earths creation and the evolution of man, the blue ray has had many roles in implementing the divine structures necessary to further expand human consciousness. It is for this reason that Archangel Michael, co-holder of the blue ray, is of the most widely known and discussed angelic beings in scripture.

What is important to realize at this pivotal point in human creation is that the blue ray must precede all others in its implementation of the divine will. "In the beginning, there was the Word", exemplifies this truth most profoundly. The blue ray holds the frequency of eternal wisdom and detachment from form, so that new potentials, new levels of consciousness can be attained and eventually formed into matter.

For this reason, the blue ray has held the role of warrior, protector of God's Will, and for the purposes of furthering human evolution in this magnificent time of planetary shifting into unity consciousness.

What this represents for the whole of humanity is the emergence of a new voice!

God's blue ray is strongly associated with the throat chakra and the energy of truthful, creative expression. "First, the word" is a depiction of the process of the creation of worlds and now, in this unprecedented time in human history, the incarnated beings of the blue ray will duly manifest the divine word into divine deed.

For this group of souls, you will be moving forward with your soul brothers and sisters and positioned at the forefront of humanity where your voices will be heard. You will be brought to your rightful place as truth-sayers, with the recognition and tools needed to spread the Word, the Will of God and to inspire communities, nations, cultures and races to join together in support of the greater good.

It is paramount to realize that your diligent and noble intentions to free yourselves from mental bondage have been in favor of the greater good, for you carry the vibration of the Word with you at all times. The arduous process of disbanding from the heaviness of the distortion fields that permeate the collective consciousness was your gift to this planet and her people, and now you step forth as examples to herald a new way.

Beloved members of the First Ray, take heed. Your diligence has paid off and your next steps will fortify the intentions for the highest good of all. Now is a time to bask, to float, to breathe, and to prepare your earthly bodies to anchor into your new vibrational home. The space that you have willfully created for yourselves here on earth is now available to all, but you, the new physical guides, will be the first to enter and dwell here.

You will witness a changing of the guard in your earthly sphere as those leaders of yesterday become increasingly more ill-equipped to handle the challenges of today. Be patient and persistent in your quest for global goodness, dear angels of blue, for you will have great influence here.

We, of the blue ray, carry each of you in our hearts as the silent warriors of a new earth. Your gifts of communication will fall on deaf ears no longer, and you may find that many who have disregarded your teachings in the past suddenly summons your wise council. Turn no one away, for the challenges will be great and will continue to increase in magnitude for all yet unwilling to surrender to the beauty and sanctity of Mother-Father God.

Remember your journeys well, bright souls, and leave the mark of compassion and hope for all who are ready to accept it.

The blue rays have succeeded in their quest to unlock the gates of heaven and all who follow in the now-worn path will be blessed by the bounty of their lighted creations.

Expect the unexpected!

On behalf of the inter-dimensional cosmic council of light, we bid you farewell, blessings and good tidings.

Prussian Blue Salt Linked to Origin of Life

ScienceDaily (Dec. 15, 2009) — A team of researchers from the Astrobiology Centre (INTA-CSIC) has shown that hydrogen cyanide, urea and other substances considered essential to the formation of the most basic biological molecules can be obtained from the salt Prussian blue. In order to carry out this study, published in the journal Chemistry & Biodiversity, the scientists recreated the chemical conditions of the early Earth.


"We have shown that when Prussian blue is dissolved in ammoniac solutions it produces hydrogen cyanide, a substance that could have played a fundamental role in the creation of the first bio-organic molecules, as well as other precursors to the origin of life, such as urea, dimethylhydantoin and lactic acid," Marta Ruiz Bermejo, lead author of the study and a researcher at the Astrobiology Centre (CSIC-INTA), said.

Urea is considered to be an important reagent in synthesising pyrimidines (the derivatives of which form part of the nucleic acids DNA and RNA), and it has been suggested that hydantoins could be the precursors of peptides and amino acids (the components of proteins), while lactic acid is also of biological interest because, along with malic acid, it can play a role in electron donor-recipient systems.

The researcher and her team have proved that these and other compounds originate from the cyanide liberated by the salt Prussian blue (the name of which refers to the dye used in the uniforms of the Prussian Army) when it is subjected for several days to conditions of pH12 and relatively high temperatures (70-150ºC) in a damp, oxygen-free ammoniac environment, similar to early conditions on Earth. The results of the study have been published recently in the journal Chemistry & Biodiversity.

"In addition, when Prussian blue decomposes in this ammoniac, anoxic environment, this complex salt, called iron (III) hexacyanoferrate (II), also turns out to be an excellent precursor of hematite, the most stable and commonly found form of iron (III) oxide on the surface of the Earth," explains Ruiz Bermejo.

Hematite is related to the so-called Banded Iron Formations (BIF), the biological or geological origin of which is the source of intense debate among scientists. The oldest of these formations, more than two billion years old, have been found in Australia.

The researchers have confirmed in other studies that Prussian blue can be obtained in prebiotic conditions (from iron ions in methane atmosphere conditions with electrical discharges). The synthesis of this salt and its subsequent transformation into hematite offers an alternative model to explain the formation of the banded iron in abiotic conditions in the absence of oxygen.

Ruiz Bermejo concludes that Prussian blue "could act as a carbon concentrator in the prebiotic hydrosphere, and that its wet decomposition in anoxic conditions could liberate hydrogen cyanide and cyanogen, with the subsequent formation of organic molecules and iron oxides."

Thanks Bluebird - I'd forgotten the Aussie true blue -my bad. Some people have a white Christmas - may there's a blue Christmas (but not as in sad) Peace to you

Blue Moon on New Year's Eve
12.29.2009



Dec. 29, 2009: Party planners take note. For the first time in almost twenty years, there's going to be a Blue Moon on New Year's Eve.

"I remember the last time this happened," says professor Philip Hiscock of the Dept. of Folklore at the Memorial University of Newfoundland. "December 1990 ended with a Blue Moon, and many New Year's Eve parties were themed by the event. It was a lot of fun."

Don't expect the Moon to actually turn blue, though. "The 'Blue Moon' is a creature of folklore," he explains. "It's the second full Moon in a calendar month."


Most months have only one full Moon. The 29.5-day cadence of the lunar cycle matches up almost perfectly with the 28- to 31-day length of calendar months. Indeed, the word "month" comes from "Moon." Occasionally, however, the one-to-one correspondence breaks down when two full Moons squeeze into a single month. Dec. 2009 is such a month. The first full Moon appeared on Dec. 2nd; the second, a "Blue Moon," will come on Dec. 31st.

This definition of Blue Moon is relatively new.

If you told a person in Shakespeare's day that something happens "once in a Blue Moon" they would attach no astronomical meaning to the statement. Blue moon simply meant rare or absurd, like making a date for the Twelfth of Never. "But meaning is a slippery substance," says Hiscock. "The phrase 'Blue Moon' has been around for more than 400 years, and during that time its meaning has shifted."

The modern definition sprang up in the 1940s. In those days, the Farmer's Almanac of Maine offered a definition of Blue Moon so convoluted that even professional astronomers struggled to understand it. It involved factors such as the ecclesiastical dates of Easter and Lent, and the timing of seasons according to the dynamical mean sun. Aiming to explain blue moons to the layman, Sky & Telescope published an article in 1946 entitled "Once in a Blue Moon." The author James Hugh Pruett cited the 1937 Maine almanac and opined that the "second [full moon] in a month, so I interpret it, is called Blue Moon."


That was not correct, but at least it could be understood. And thus the modern Blue Moon was born.

Blue moon has other connotations, too. In music, it's often a symbol of melancholy. According to one Elvis tune, it means "without a love of my own." On the bright side, he croons in another song, a simple kiss can turn a Blue Moon pure gold.

The modern astronomical Blue Moon occurs in some month every 2.5 years, on average. A Blue Moon falling precisely on Dec. 31st, however, is much more unusual. The last time it happened was in 1990, and the next time won't be until 2028.

So cue up that old Elvis record and "enjoy the extra moonlight on New Year's Eve," says Hiscock. "It only happens once in a Blue Moon."

The "Blue Brain" & Human Consciousness -Scientists Create Artificial Brain.

:glasshead:

A network of artificial nerves is evolving right now in a Swiss supercomputer. This bizarre creation is capable of simulating a natural brain, cell-for-cell. The Swiss scientists, who created what they have dubbed "Blue Brain", believe it will soon offer a better understanding of human consciousness. This is no sci-fi flick; it’s an actual ‘computer brain’ that may eventually have the ability to think for itself. Exciting? Scary? It could be a little of both.

The designers say that "Blue Brain" was willful and unpredictable from day one. When it was first fed electrical impulses, strange patterns began to appear with lightning-like flashes produced by ‘cells’ that the scientists recognized from living human and animal processes. Neurons started interacting with one another until they were firing in rhythm. "It happened entirely on its own," says biologist Henry Markram, the project's director. "Spontaneously."

The project essentially has its own factory to produce artificial brains. Their computers can clone nerve cells quickly. The system allows for the production of whole series of neurons of all different types. Because in natural brains, no two cells are exactly identical, the scientists make sure the artificial cells used for the project are also random and unique.

Does this ‘Brain’ have a soul? If it does, it is likely to be the shadowy remnants of thousands of sacrificed rats whose brains were almost literally fed into the computer. After opening the rat skulls and slicing their brains into thin sections, the scientists kept the slices alive. Tiny sensors picked up individual neurons, recorded how the cells fired off neurons and the adjacent cells’ responses. In this way the scientists were able to collect entire repertoires of actual rat behavior- basically how a rat would respond in different situations throughout a rat's life.

The researchers say it wouldn't present much of a technological challenge to bring the brain to life. "We could simply connect a robot to the brain model," says Markram. "Then we could see how it reacts to real environments."

Hmm, are rats capable of revenge? What I’m wondering is what this brain would do to those researchers if it was attached to a giant metallic rat body and equipped with teeth and claws…now there’s a good sci-fi movie.

Although over ten thousand artificial nerve cells have already been woven in, the researchers plan to increase the number to one million by next year. The researchers are already working with IBM experts on plans for a computer that would operate at inconceivable speeds – something fast enough to simulate the human brain. The project is scheduled to last beyond 2015, at which point the team hopes to be ready for their primary goal: a computer model of an entire human brain. So, who’s brain will they be slicing up for that one? Lets hope it’s not a psychopath.
