Humans are very migratory when it comes to searching for a better life or to increase material gain. Maybe these two things are one in the same.
The migrant caravan coming up from Central America in hopes of entering the USA is full of sad stories and sights. Those poor people are looking for a better life and are willing to risk the danger and endure the hardships of a long migration. By the way, if you want to read a good book about modern day Spanish immigrants and the paranormal,…Continue
Last night around sunset, while out strolling near the woods, I found a dead black vulture. It was a gray day outside, typical of the Fall season here in Texas. A few light sprinkles and nice cool temperatures. I guess it was a good day to die for the vulture.
While dreaming last night, I was playing billiards. What was unusual about this billiard game, is that the balls were all shaped like skulls. It reminded me of the Ancient Maya myths when they played the ballgame using people’s…Continue

Traveling through the long dark tunnels of the Underworld last night, I encountered various people and places. A soul can travel quite rapidly when it leaves the physical body behind. Leaving all people behind, I headed down a very long tunnel of the Underworld.
The Underworld is not far from our plane of existence. You could look at it as a parallel universe or dimension. There are doorways along the tunnels of the Underworld that allow access back into our dimension. Sometimes these…Continue

This is a dream for all you psychologist out there. Is there a doctor in the audience?
Last night, I visited the house of my youth. It was absent of all the usual characters (i.e. siblings and father), but dear old mother was there. We were walking around the house and I was noticing all the changes she had made to the place. The house of my youth was a large wooden frame house built by wooden ship makers many years ago.
After noticing things were missing and tilted, then…Continue

The last time this skull-faced asteroid flew by Earth was on Halloween of 2015 at 300,000 miles. To give you a perspective, the Moon is 239,000 miles from Earth. A very close call in astronomical terms. This fly by will be much further out, 25 million miles, and will occur on 11-11-2018. For you numerology enthusiast out there, that is 11-11-11, since 2018 breaks down to an 11. (i.e. 2+0+1+8=11) Eleven is not broken down any further in my numerology tradition. This skull-faced rock was first…Continue

A recent discovery in Guatemala of a Maya 1500-year-old, one-ton altar, has archeologists comparing this region of Mesoamerica to the political and social environment of the modern-day television series “Game of Thrones.”
It was found at the archeological site known as La Corona. This site is located in a region frequented by drug traffickers and criminal gangs. A very hostile environment for researchers and adventurers. It was probably less hostile in the days of the Ancient…Continue

Volcanoes are a formidable force of Mother Earth. They have commanded the respect of humans since time immemorial. Climbing to the rim of an active volcano is a hair-raising adventure. I recall a tourist bus in El Salvador taking foreigners on a tour of an active volcano. The volcano started shooting hot rocks into the air which rained down on the unsuspecting visitors and punching holes in the roof of their bus. Mayhem quickly ensued.
Sacrifices to volcanoes have occurred in the past…Continue

Today I journeyed to the “Heart” of the local community. Every community should have a Heart, a spiritual center point. Some communities have lost their Heart. It is a long-hot journey in the Texas sun, 13 miles round trip. A rather long walk. At several locations along the journey, the black vulture was circling overhead, looking to eat the dead, whether it be human or animal.
The black vulture does a very efficient job in cleaning up carrion. I recall passing in the past, a group of…Continue
Masks have been used by humans for over 9000 years. The oldest masks come from the hills and deserts around Jerusalem. They are a Stone Age product and are quite intriguing.
Masks have been worn for various reasons. One old Maya man said that they wore masks so the gods could not recognize them. I guess the “Anonymous” mask we see worn today at protests fit that bill in the sense nobody can recognize the wearer. Masks are worn to impersonate gods, animals, cryptic creatures, the dead,…Continue
The Ancient Egyptians believe the human soul has five divisions or components. They named them Ren, Ka, Ib, Ba, and Sheut.
Ren is literally your name. It lives as long as you are remembered, or read about by others, or prayed to as an ancestor.
Ka is the vital essence that makes the difference between the living and the dead. It animates your body keeping your corporeal existence intact.
Ib is literally the heart. It is formed from a single drop of blood from your…Continue
The Dark Queen comes in the night to your place of rest. She has her maidens that prepare her way. Once the air is sufficiently fixed, she overwhelms her subject with deep desire.
Who is this Dark Queen that touches our heart? Is she some thoughtform we create ourselves? Maybe her roots run deep into the past. Ancient cultures have recognized her abilities and respected her ways. Is it Nyx, Lilith, Hekate, Kali, Inanna, Tlazolteotl, or some other name? Whatever you wish to call her,…Continue
While out strolling one hot summer evening at sunset, my hearing was molested by a tree full of cicadas. The noise was deafening. A single cicada can produce a sound of 120 db (decibel). This tree must have had hundreds of cicadas.
There are some 3000 species of cicadas worldwide. Some species are periodical and only emerge from Mother Earth in cycles, for example, 13 and 17-year cycles. Other species are not fixed to a cycle and emerge annually. The noise making cicadas are the males…Continue
While watching one of those real time police shows on TV, this one was following cops in Alaska, the cops responded to a call about a dog being attacked by a lynx. The dog was not killed, it was bloodied up a bit, but it was going to recover just fine. The cops decided that they needed to kill the lynx because it may attack a child or another dog. The first thing that came to my mind is that the dog probably chased the lynx and provoked the attack. Don’t kill the lynx for protecting itself.…Continue
While out walking the other day, I came upon a Great Blue Heron feeding on little fish in the stagnant waters of the woods. It really is a majestic bird and one can see how scientist believe some dinosaurs evolved into birds. The heron is a very widespread species in North America. It can be found from Canada to Mexico. The Ancient Aztec mythical homeland, Aztlan, is translated by some to mean the “Place of Heron.” A seasoned Aztec warrior wore a special hair-style that included a…Continue

The recent nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court has some nefarious under tones. I’m not a political person, per se, but I do keep up with current events. I do not know Brett Kavanaugh personally, but I’m familiar with the Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh can be an accepting person, allowing for others to follow their path of choice, but Kavanaugh has a tough side that will not hesitate to inflict pain in order to gain.
Brett Kavanaugh is going to be forcefully pulled down a path he…Continue

Decoys are used for deception and they come in a very wide array of styles. Hunters use duck decoys to bring in unsuspecting ducks to their death. People put owl decoys out to scare away rodents and others varmints. News media uses one story to attract attention away from another story. Or the news media will give a misleading headline but are able to say it is not fake news because the last paragraph of the story will have the truth, often times it is the last sentence. Sports teams use…Continue

This is a follow up to my “Spirit Animal” blog post. It gives two examples of traveling in the astral plane as your spirit animal, in this case a bat. By the way, last night I encountered an interesting creature on the astral plane. It was the cross between an ivy and a crow. (This brings up another interesting subject, using a plant as your alter-ego.) If you got too close to the plant the crow part would peck you with it’s beak and cause a severe infection. If you lived through the…Continue

My conception of spirit animals is that everyone has a companion spirit animal that resides in their body. Many people have more than one spirit animal and they keep their spirit animals in the corral. Most people are totally unaware of their spirit animals.
It is a custom to acquire a body part of your spirit animals if possible. A picture or some other token can be used as an icon to call forth your spirit animal. All of the body parts and/or icons are kept in a wooden box hidden in…Continue
It was a hot day today. I spent several hours outside walking in the hot sun. Along the route I took came a doe and her fawn. Another doe was following them along but it did not have a fawn. Deer give birth during the months of April through June. They were walking in the hot sun like me and I wondered if it bothered them with their fur coats. The nearby cattle were all resting in the shade of a grove of trees. The cattle were content to just watch the deer and I stroll along. The deer…Continue

Last night was the beautiful Strawberry Moon here in Texas. It is also called the Rose Moon by some. The strawberries I ate yesterday and this morning were especially succulent. While out playing ball under the bright full moon I met some very nice people. People in this new neighborhood I live are opening up to me it seems. Young and old alike have smiles and greetings when they see me. While walking I passed the lady’s house that had the garage sale a while back. She lives by herself in a…Continue
