Here is the January 2017 Newsletter. It seems to focus around Uluru, and you shall see why, quickly! We bring you news about discovery of the star-navigation skills of the Australian aboriginals, and expose (fake) news about an archaeological discovery at Uluru. Nonetheless, the Northern Territory Museum are doing a fantastic dig nearby with Flinders University. We bring you the colours of Egypt and news of the message given by Archangel Mikael at the Close Encounters Conference at Byron Bay, which I attended in the company of my husband, John.
The world’s oldest observatory? How Aboriginal astronomy provides clues to ancient life
An ancient Aboriginal site at a secret location in the Victorian bush could be the oldest astronomical observatory in the world, pre-dating Stonehenge and even the Great Pyramids of Giza. Scientists studying the Wurdi Youang stone arrangement say it could date back more than 11,000 years and provide clues into the origins of agriculture.
Duane Hamacher, a leader in the study of Indigenous astronomy, has been working with Aboriginal elders at the site to reconstruct their knowledge of the stars and planets. “Some academics have referred to this stone arrangement here as Australia’s version of Stonehenge,” Dr Hamacher said.
If the site is more than 7,000 years old, it will rewrite history and further disprove the notion that first Australians were uniformly nomadic hunter-gatherers.
Aboriginal observatory in Victoria Scientists believe the arrangement of stones was able to map out the movements of the sun throughout the year. Custodian Reg Abrahams said the region around the observatory seemed to have once had semi-permanent villages with evidence of early fishing and farming practices.
“If you’re going to have a stone arrangement where you mark off the seasons throughout the year with the solstices and equinoxes, it kind of makes sense if you’re at least most of the year in one specific location to do that,” he said.
“So if that’s the case, it would make sense if you’re near permanent food and water sources.” He said there were areas where eel traps would have been set up and even signs of “gilgies”, or terraces used in farming. “You see a lot of agricultural and aquacultural practices, so evidence of this agriculture may go back tens of thousands of years, pre-dating what anthropologists commonly think of as the dawn of agriculture which is about 11,000 years ago in Mesopotamia,” he said

Color in Ancient Egypt
The ancient Egyptians had a great appreciation for life which is clearly depicted through their art. Images of people enjoying themselves – whether in this life or the next – are as plentiful as those most often seen of the gods or funerary rituals. The early Egyptologists who first encountered the culture focused their attention on the many examples of funerary art found in tombs and concluded that Egyptian culture was death-obsessed when, in reality, the ancient Egyptians were wholly absorbed in living life to its fullest.
Egyptians decorated their homes, gardens, palaces, and tombs with impressive works of art which reflected their appreciation for all that the gods had given them and accented these depictions with vibrant colors. The palace of Amenhotep III (1386-1353 BCE) at Malkata was brightly painted, the outer walls of white and the interiors of blue, yellow, and green, with murals and other ornamentation throughout. These colours were not chosen randomly but each had a very specific symbolism for the Egyptians and were used to convey that significance. Egyptologist Rosalie David comments on this:
Colour was regarded as an integral element of all art representations, including wall-scenes, statuary, tomb goods, and jewelry, and the magical qualities of a specific color were believed to become an integral part of any object to which it was added (176).
Color in ancient Egypt was used not only in realistic representations of scenes from every life but to illustrate the heavenly realms of the gods, the afterlife, and the stories and histories of the deities of the Egyptian pantheon. Each colour had its own particular symbolism and was created from elements found in nature. Egyptologist Margaret Bunson writes how “artisans began to observe the natural occurrence of colours in their surroundings and pulverised various oxides and other materials to develop the hues they desired”.
Each color had its own particular symbolism and was created from elements found in nature.

Fake Report of City found after Uluru Earthquake
A spoof news (now called Fake News) website – worldnewsdailyreports.com – carried an article some time after the Uluru Earthquake alleging that the Australian National University were conducting a dig and had found a buried city, 570 bodies and more tombs using a newly developed ground-penetrating radar. The ANU have no team at Uluru and had a good laugh about the spoof article. The worldnewsdailyreports.com “About Us” page explicitly says that the (news) provided is strictly for entertainment only.
There is an official Northern Territory Museum exploration and dig occurring in the region. This is the Alcoota dig, which Dr Adam Yeates from the Museum of Central Australia was still finding “new and better” fossils every time the team returns to the site.
“It is a joint project with Flinders University and we are resuming digging in June after having a break this year,” he said. “Each dig lasts for four weeks and it is a slow process as the bones are extremely delicate. “The bones are of early mega-fauna – giant wombats, giant flightless birds and giant crocodiles.”

A Man Built A Gold Pyramid In Illinois and Found Remarkable Energy
In a world now filled with outlandish and unconventional architecture, the idea of someone building a gold pyramid certainly doesn’t seem newsworthy, but the story of this Illinois man is simply remarkable.
One day after stumbling across a university study suggesting that the pyramids at Giza generate energy, Jim Onan decided to test the theory by building a number of small pyramids to put around his house. Once completed, Jim and several others were astonished by the “weird sensations” putting their hands above the structures seemed to elicit. The top of the pyramids appeared to be emitting some kind of energy.
Wanting to take this oddity to another level, Jim decided to build a 13 foot tall pyramid in his backyard, in which one of his sons, a botanist, suggested that they grow plants within. They soon discovered that plants sown within the pyramid grew, on average, 3 times as quickly as those without.
Now completely enveloped by his experiment, Jim, after a light-hearted conversation with his wife, decided to build his family an entire house in the shape of a pyramid. The final product was designed to exactly replicate the pyramids at Giza (at 1/9th of their size, of course).
As the building neared completion, the next astonishing thing took place: the middle of the floor within the structure began to bubble up with spring water. This obstacle forced the family to scrap their plans for a ground level pool and to instead bring in experts to help reroute the new found water away from the house.

The Mysteries of the Kingdom of Shambala
Shambhala, which is a Sanskrit word meaning “place of peace” or “place of silence”, is a mythical paradise spoken of in ancient texts, including the Kalachakra Tantra and the ancient scriptures of the Zhang Zhung culture which predated Tibetan Buddhism in western Tibet. According to legend, it is a land where only the pure of heart can live, a place where love and wisdom reigns and where people are immune to suffering, want or old age.
Shambhala is said to be the land of a thousand names. It has been called the Forbidden Land, the Land of White Waters, Land of Radiant Spirits, Land of Living Fire, Land of the Living Gods and Land of Wonders. The Hindus call it Aryavartha (‘The Land of the Worthy Ones); the Chinese know it as Hsi Tien, the Western Paradise of Hsi Wang Mu; and to the Russian Old Believers, it is known as Belovoyde. But throughout Asia, it is best known by its Sanskrit name, Shambhala, Shamballa, or Shangri-la.
The legend of Shambhala is said to date back thousands of years, and reference to the mythical land can be found in various ancient texts. The Bön scriptures speak of a closely related land called Olmolungring. Hindu texts such as Vishnu Purana mention Shambhala as the birth place of Kalki, the final incarnation of Vishnu who will usher in a new Golden Age. The Buddhist myth of Shambhala is an adaptation of the earlier Hindu myth. However, the text in which Shambhala is first discussed extensively is the Kalachakra.
The Kalachakra refers to a complex and advanced esoteric teaching and practice in Tibetan Buddhism. Shakyamuni Buddha is said to have taught the Kalachakra on request of King Suchandra of Shambhala.
As with many concepts in the Kalachakra, the idea of Shambhala is said to have outer, inner, and alternative meanings. The outer meaning understands Shambhala to exist as a physical place, although only individuals with the appropriate karma can reach it and experience it as such. The inner and alternative meanings refer to more subtle understandings of what Shambhala represents in terms of one’s own body and mind (inner), and during meditative practice (alternative). These two types of symbolic explanations are generally passed on orally from teacher to student.
As the 14th Dalai Lama noted during the 1985 Kalachakra initiation in Bodhgaya, Shambhala is not an ordinary country:
Although those with special affiliation may actually be able to go there through their karmic connection, nevertheless it is not a physical place that we can actually find. We can only say that it is a pure land, a pure land in the human realm. And unless one has the merit and the actual karmic association, one cannot actually arrive there.

The man who thinks trees talk to each other
Trees have friends, feel loneliness, scream with pain and communicate underground via the “woodwide web”. Some act as parents and good neighbours. Others do more than just throw shade – they’re brutal bullies to rival species. The young ones take risks with their drinking and leaf-dropping then remember the hard lessons from their mistakes. It’s a hard-knock life.
A book called The Hidden Life of Trees is not an obvious bestseller but it’s easy to see the popular appeal of German forester Peter Wohlleben’s claims – they are so anthropomorphic. Certainly, a walk in the park feels different when you imagine the network of roots crackling with sappy chat beneath your feet. We don’t know the half of what’s going on underground and beneath the bark, he says: “We have been looking at nature for the last 100 years like [it is] a machine.”
There’s a touchy-feely warmth to the book – an “ouch!” when he describes trees having branches hacked, roots cut or being gnawed by insects – and he talks about “brainlike things” going on in trees that enable them to learn over their long lifetimes. He points to scientific research – by Aachen University, the University of British Columbia and the Max Planck Society – that he claims underpins all his vivid descriptions, but he writes as a conservationist and admits that much is still unknown. “It’s very hard to find out what trees are communicating when they feel well,” he says.
Wohlleben – it translates as “Livewell” – has developed his thinking over the past decade while watching the powerful but self-interested survival system of the ancient beech forest he manages in the Eifel mountains of western Germany. “The thing that surprised me most is how social trees are. I stumbled over an old stump one day and saw that it was still living although it was 400 or 500 years old, without any green leaf. Every living being needs nutrition. The only explanation was that it was supported by the neighbour trees via the roots with a sugar solution. As a forester, I learned that trees are competitors that struggle against each other, for light, for space, and there I saw that it’s just vice versa. Trees are very interested in keeping every member of this community alive.”

Archangel Mikael Speaks at Conference
As we have shared earlier on this website, Valerie Barrow was one of the invited speakers at the recent Close Encounters Conference at Byron Bay during January 2017. Valerie goes on to share the happenings at the conference.
The wonderful sharing of knowledge that took place at the Afterlife Explorers Conference and the Close Encounters Conference 2 days after it at Byron Bay was truly worth a visit. Here is the Organisers latest website advertising their next Conference to be held in Coffs Harbour in 2018. They also plan to have a WORLD RAINBOW SERPENT DAY – Cosmic Consciousness Conference at Uluru at Voyages Ayers Rock Resort on 12th to 14th January 2018.
Our readers will remember that Archangel Mikael made his presence on the 3rd January 2017 – the day we normally receive a Transmission from Cosmic Sai Baba. Cosmic Sai Baba advised telepathically that he did not have a message that day but there was another who wished to speak. It was Archangel Michael saying he would like to speak at the Conference Valerie was going to speak at Byron Bay on 16th January, 2017. And that his coming on that day was a rehearsal.
Valerie commenced speaking at the conference, explaining her background with Sathya Sai Baba, Cosmic Sai Baba and Alcheringa, the oversighting spirit of the Indigenous peoples of Australia. This led into a channelling session from Alcheringa (to be provided when the video is available). Archangel Mikael then spoke. Prior to listening to Archangel Mikael – as given below – you may benefit from what Alcheringa had advised Valerie at the time she visited Uluru with friends in 1994. This is an extract from The Book of Love, by a Medium (authored by Valerie).
The Event – my voice began to change here…. Yes, that is what it is. An Event that will become world-wide in its happening, in other words all the world will hear of it. It will lead on to other experiences similar; all around the Earth, but at Uluru it will be like a door opening and it will be an en-masse appearance of Star Ships so that all that are at Uluru will experience the presence of Extra Terrestrials. (Deep sigh.)
It will be a short visit, but it will be one that will leave no doubt in anybody’s mind. You will be our mouthpiece, My Dear. We do not intend to land and no you will not be taken on board. There will be much communication take place and much understanding will come to the Black man and the White man.
This information will be shared between you. This will help to bond the two races. It is Alcheringa speaking.
Archangel Mikael’s transmission had reminded Valerie that an Event had been spoken about in 1994 when she was holding the Alcheringa Stone – which was wrapped in paper-bark and tied with string (which she never opened). Valerie wrote about this “Event” on page 105 in her book “The Book of Love, by a Medium” and the manuscript was personally blessed by Sri Sathya Sai Baba – Avatar in 1995. Looking back now, I realised that the star people did not feel welcomed and so they postponed their visit to Uluru en-masse at that time.
Now they will be assessing the mood of all SOULS on earth as to whether they shall be welcomed by a visit to take place EN-MASSE in January 2018. We are hoping of course that will be when the Cosmic Consciousness Conference is taking place at Uluru 12th-14th January 2018.
On January 16th 2017 – Archangel made his appearance at the Close Encounters Conference held at BYRON BAY. We are waiting for the video showing how he comes into this earth atmosphere and ‘bellows’ his message very loudly. We hope to have that video very soon so that we can place it on Youtube as Archangel Mikael has requested.
NB When Archangel Mikael makes His entrance Valerie explains — “My body is then taken over by his presence – he then bends me forward on the chair and as He does that, I can feel ‘a very strong pushing of energy’ being pumped into my body’s spine (particularly where my heart area is) and then I can feel and hear his voice sound coming into my voice box and slowly lifting my body to stand up – so then he spreads his wings and addresses everyone with a very loud voice …
It is theatre, of course, but my husband told me that everyone in the audience was spellbound. And it certainly isn’t Valerie speaking that holds them spellbound, says John. As Valerie has said, it was the strongest energy coming forth ever – from me -and really shook me up – I thought I was going to lift off the ground. I could barely stand up. When, Kathryn Hand and Mike Turner (the organisers) came to answer a question from the audience – they both stood either side of her on stage, and took her hands. That really helped her to earth herself again. Valerie was truly grateful for that.”
They also plan to have a WORLD RAINBOW SERPENT DAY – Cosmic Consciousness Conference at Uluru at Voyages Ayers Rock Resort on 12th to 14th January 2018. A little more about the Cosmic Consciousness Conference: World Rainbow Serpent Day, our international event – Cosmic Consciousness Conference – is to be held at Voyages Ayers Rock Resort at the Earth’s solar plexus chakra, Uluru-Kata Tjuta (12-14 January 2018). Our theme is AWAKEN UPGRADE ACTIVATE. Our mission is to prepare people to move towards a cosmic consciousness and thrive in the new 5th dimension.
“I am the Pure Light of Consciousness
And bringing all into the Light of God.“
Alcheringa … when the first ancestors were created
This is the story of fifty thousand people coming from the Pleiades in a giant starship to found the human race on Earth.
It is not a simple story, but one filled with intrigue, deception, and the planned destruction of a mission that left only ninety survivors to be cast upon the Earth.
Part of the story was about their survival on a planet whose atmosphere they could barely breathe, a sun they could not expose themselves to, and a dangerous and poisonous environment that took many of the survivor’s lives.
Their struggle and success in creating our race is the miracle they brought. It is our past and they are our heritage.
