February 2015 Newsletter

colourful sun

Hello Everyone,
Welcome to our February Newsletter for 2015. In this newsletter we read about an odd tunnel in the Kariong-Gosford region and the research of Steven and Evan Strong. Wanderers is video we bring which has visions of humans diving and flying through ice rings and the atmospheres of planets and moons in far away places; it is a vision of things that might be, asking questions. Some of the research and information given to Valerie by “upstairs” concerns ancient history in Egypt and we bring you two articles about the Nile Delta and the discovery of the tomb of a pharonic queen.

The pop song goes “Money, Money, Money” … what would it be like to live without money? We look to a lady who has done just that. Rumi tells us we are never lonely and that the entire universe exists within. Alan Watts brings a video about how the universe lives through us. The Institute of HeartMath shows us the power of love; other researchers look to the role of the Annunaki in the past, and we look to a colourful Sun. We examine Leylines and give you a link to a narrative about walking a leyline.

The Tunnel, Crayfish, Owl, Walls and Dead Trees, all Sitting on Thirty Three Degrees

By Steven & Evan Strong

Way back, not long after we first set foot and reputation into this historical and archaeological minefield, we made contact with Klaus Dona. From that point onwards Klaus has been an indispensable colleague and adviser, and has had a direct impact on so many areas we have investigated.

A focal point of our joint research is a 12 kilometre corridor stretching from Kariong in the north then through to Gosford and continuing further south until reaching the coast. We are united in our belief that in extremely ancient times there was an ancient city on these grounds. Through procedures and technology we are neither privy to nor possess the ability to understand, Klaus sends us photographs marking out where and what. The coloured dots and shaded areas on the satellite photographs tells what is there and where to go, but alas, what is not delineated is the depth of deposit. A refinement in this technology, when on site, can do so, but for now the reality is artefacts of great antiquity are rarely found on or just beneath the surface. So when on site in pursuit of Klaus’ clues we are constantly aware that the object or construction sought could be 5 millimeters or 5 metres beneath the surface, with the realistic possibility of the deeper position being where the artefact will be found.

Wanderers – a short film by Erik Wernquist from Erik Wernquist on Vimeo.

Wanderers is a vision of humanity’s expansion into the Solar System, based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens. The locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available.

Without any apparent story, other than what you may fill in by yourself, the idea of the film is primarily to show a glimpse of the fantastic and beautiful nature that surrounds us on our neighboring worlds – and above all, how it might appear to us if we were there.

The Nile Delta was wider …

sunken greek city

Recently, archaeologists from around the world gathered at the University of Oxford to discuss these major discoveries that have started to emerge from the treasures found in this ancient Egyptian sunken city. What was noted was that Hercleion, named for Hercules, who legend claimed had been there, was also mentioned in ancient texts, plus it’s importance as a port.

The site sits in what is now the Bay of Aboukir, submerged under 150 feet of water. In the 8th Century BC, which is when the city is thought to have been built, it would have sat at the mouth of the River Nile delta as it opened up into the Mediterranean. It is thought that gradual sea level rose and combined with a sudden collapse of the unstable sediment, the city dropped by about 12 feet. Over time, the city faded from memory and its existence, along with many other lost settlements along the coast, was only known from a few ancient texts … until now.

They discovered the remains of more than 64 ships buried in the current sea bed of thick clay and sand. Gold coins bronze and stone weights, giant statues, (at 16 feet), have also been uncovered and brought to the surface, amongst hundreds of other smaller statues of gods of the time. Not to mention slabs of stone inscribed in ancient Greek and Ancient Egyptian have also been brought to the surface and dozens of small limestone sarcophagi were also recently uncovered by divers which may have once had mummified animals to appease the gods.

Happy 69 Year Old Lady Has Not Used Money For 15 Years

Heidemarie Schwermer, a 69-year-old woman from Germany, gave up using money 15 years ago and says she’s been much happier ever since.

Heidemarie’s incredible story began 22 years ago, when she, a middle-aged secondary school teacher emerging from a difficult marriage, took her two children and moved to the city of Dortmund, in Germany’s Ruhr area. One of the first things she noticed was the large number of homeless people, and this shocked her so much that she decided to actually do something about it. She had always believed the homeless didn’t need actual money to be accepted back into society, only a chance to empower themselves by making themselves useful, so she opened a Tauschring (swap shop), called “Gib und Nimm” (Give and Take).

Her small venture was a place where anyone could trade stuff and skills for other things and skills they needed, without a single coin or banknote changing hands. Old clothes could be traded in return for kitchen appliances, and car service rendered in return for plumbing services, and so on. The idea didn’t really attract many of Dortmund’s homeless, because, as some of them told her to her face, they didn’t feel an educated middle-class woman could relate to their situation. Instead, her small shop was assaulted by many of the city’s unemployed and retired folk eager to trade their skills and old stuff for something they needed. Heidemarie Schwermer’s Tauschring eventually became somewhat of a phenomenon in Dortmund and even prompted its creator to ask herself some questions about the life she was living.

She started to realize she was living with a lot of stuff she didn’t really need and initially decided not to buy anything else without giving something away. Then she realized how unhappy she was with her work and made the connection between this feeling and the physical symptoms (backache and constant illness) she was feeling, so she decided to take up other jobs. She began washing dishes for 10 Deutchmarks an hour, and despite many were telling her things like “You went to university, you studied to do this?”, she felt good about herself, and didn’t feel like she should be valued more because of her studies than someone working in a kitchen. By 1995, the Tauschring had changed her life so much that she was spending virtually nothing, as everything she needed seemed to find its way into her life.

So in 1996. she took the biggest decision of her life: to live without money. Her children had moved out so she sold the apartment in Dortmund and decided to live nomadically, trading things and services for everything she needed. It was supposed to be a 12-month experiment, but found herself loving it so much that she just couldn’t give it up. 15 years later, she still lives according to the principles of Gib und Nimm, doing various chores for accommodation in the houses of various members of the Tauschring, and loving every minute of it. Schwermer has written two books about her experience of living without money and asked her publisher to give the money to charity so it can make many people happy instead of just one. She’s just happy being healthier and better off than ever before.

All of her belongings fit into a single-back suitcase and a rucksack, she has emergency savings of €200 and any other money she comes across, she gives away. Heidemarie doesn’t even have health insurance as she didn’t want to be accused of stealing from the state, and says she relies on the power of self-healing whenever she gets a little sick.

Our Colourful Sun

Why are the regions above sunspots so hot? Sunspots themselves are a bit cooler than the surrounding solar surface because the magnetic fields that create them reduce heating. It is therefore unusual that regions overhead — even much higher up in the Sun’s corona — can be hundreds of times hotter. To help find the cause, NASA directed the Earth-orbiting Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) satellite to point its very sensitive X-ray telescope at the Sun. Featured above is the Sun in ultraviolet light, shown in a red hue as taken by the orbiting Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). Superimposed in false-colored green and blue is emission above sunspots detected by NuSTAR in different bands of high-energy X-rays, highlighting regions of extremely high temperature.

Well, that’s the official explanation. We like to think that the scientists have captured visible evidence of the energies coming through to us from the Central Sun of all Universes to our Central Sun – located in the constellation called Saggitarius, and thence to our Sun. New, higher frequency, higher vibrational energies are being passed down to us through the stargates as you read. Star-people in the 5th dimension enter via these stargates to help us progress toward living in harmony on our home, Mother Earth.

So we like to think our Colourful Sun is showing the new energies in this special satellite photo above. Thank you, Source! You may click the image above to see a full-size version. Source, Astronomy Picture of the Day.

What Science Is Telling Us About The Heart’s Intuitive Intelligence

heart and love

The wonderful and brilliant scientists over at the Institute of HeartMath have done some amazing work in shedding light on some very significant findings regarding the science of the heart.

The Institute of HeartMath is an internationally recognized nonprofit research and education organization dedicated to helping people reduce stress, self-regulate emotions and build energy and resilience for healthy, happy lives. HeartMath tools, technology and training teach people to rely on the intelligence of their hearts in concert with their minds at home, school, work and play.

A large portion of their research has investigated heart and brain interaction. Researchers at the institute have examined how the heart and brain communicate with each other and how that affects our consciousness and the way in which we perceive our world.

Their research has shed light on a number of facts, one for example, is when a person is feeling really positive emotions like gratitude, love, or appreciation, that the heart beats out a very different message. They’ve been able to determine this by the fact that the heart beats out the largest electromagnetic field produced in the body, and they can gather data from it.

“Emotional information is actually coded and modulated into these fields. By learning to shift our emotions, we are changing the information coded into the magnetic fields that are radiated by the heart, and that can impact those around us. We are fundamentally and deeply connected with each other and the planet itself.” – Rolin McCratey , Ph.D, Director of Research at the Institute.

This is very important work, as again, it shows how the heart plays an important role far beyond what is commonly known. Did you know that your heart emits electromagnetic fields that change according to your emotions? Did you know that the human heart has a magnetic field that can be measured up to several feet away from the human body?  Did you know that positive emotions create physiological benefits in your body? Did you know that you can boost your immune system by conjuring up positive emotions? Did you know that negative emotions can create a nervous system chaos, and that positive emotions do the complete opposite?  Did you know that the heart has a system of neurons that have both short term and long term memory, and that their signals sent to the brain can affect our emotional experiences? Did you know that in fetal development, the heart forms and starts beating before the brain is developed?  Did you know that a mother’s brainwaves can synchronize to her baby’s heartbeats? Did you know that the heart sends more information to the brain than vice versa?

All of these facts, published researched papers and more can be accessed at heartmath.org

Below is a video from the institute about the intuitive intelligence of the heart. Definitely worth a look.

You are the Eternal Universe


Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.



Philippe Buache (born La Neuville-au-Pont, 7 February 1700; died Paris, 24 January 1773) was a French geographer.

Buache was trained under the geographer Guillaume Delisle, whose daughter he married, and whom he succeeded in the Académie des sciences in 1730. Buache was nominated first geographer of the king in 1729. He established the division of the world by seas and river systems. He believed in a southern continent, an hypothesis which was confirmed by later discoveries. In 1754, he published an “Atlas physique.” He also wrote several pamphlets.

The Bauche map was published in 1737 by Phillipe Bauche, a French geographer. It too was reportedly copied from earlier maps. The map shows Antarctica, well before the continent was “discovered”. It too shows Antarctica accurately as it lies with no ice. It shows the Canary Islands in their correct positions and also the correct outline of the underwater plateau on which they are located. (Which means the ancient source map was based upon information of the shape BEFORE the glaciers melted and the oceans rose.) More amazingly, it even shows a waterway which divides Antarctica into two land-masses. Amazingly, in 1958, when the first seismic survey was done, that waterway was discovered under the existing mile of ice. Some geologists believe the last time this ice-free condition existed was millions of years ago.

Ancient Explorer looks at the Annunaki

Scholars have long believed that the first civilization on Earth emerged in Sumer some 6,000 years ago. However, as Michael Tellinger reveals, the Sumerians and Egyptians inherited their knowledge from an earlier civilization that lived at the southern tip of Africa and began with the arrival of the Anunnaki more than 200,000 years ago. Sent to Earth in search of life-saving gold, these ancient Anunnaki astronauts from the planet Nibiru created the first humans as a slave race to mine gold–thus beginning our global traditions of gold obsession, slavery, and god as dominating master.

Revealing new archaeological and genetic evidence in support of Zecharia Sitchin’s revolutionary work with pre-biblical clay tablets, Tellinger shows how the Anunnaki created us using pieces of their own DNA, controlling our physical and mental capabilities by inactivating their more advanced DNA–which explains why less than 3 percent of our DNA is active. He identifies a recently discovered complex of sophisticated ruins in South Africa, complete with thousands of mines, as the city of Anunnaki leader Enki and explains their lost technologies that used the power of sound as a source of energy. Matching key mythologies of the world’s religions to the Sumerian clay tablet stories on which they are based, he details the actual events behind these tales of direct physical interactions with “god,” concluding with the epic flood–a perennial theme of ancient myth–that wiped out the Anunnaki mining operations.

Tellinger shows that, as humanity awakens to the truth about our origins, we can overcome our programmed animalistic and slave-like nature, tap in to our dormant Anunnaki DNA, and realize the longevity and intelligence of our creators as well as learn the difference between the gods of myth and the true loving God of our universe.

Most cultures have traditions and words to describe the straight, often geometric alignments that ran across ancient landscapes, connecting both natural and sacred prehistoric structures together. Usually the names given to represent these invisible lines are translated to an equivalent of ‘spirit’, ‘dream’, or ‘energy’ paths. However, apart from the physical presence of the sites themselves, proving the presence of a ‘connection’ between them is something that researchers have found notoriously elusive.

There are several developed theories on the purpose of ley-lines, many of which offer valid potential; something which in itself illustrates the complexity of unravelling the myriad of alignments from several millennia of activity.

It is likely that ley-lines are a product of different elements from several of the following theories, being created at different times, for different purposes. The following examples are the current contenders for explaining how such a dedication to straight-lines has led mankind its present position.

It is important to recognise the distinction between ley-lines and geometric alignments.

One of the largest Leys in England, the so-called St. Michaels Ley, is aligned along the path of the sun on the 8th of May (The spring festival of St. Michael) and can therefore be considered astronomical. This line passes through several megalithic sites before it reaches Glastonbury, (artificially shaped to follow the direction of the ley), and then on to the Avebury/Silbury complex, both significant English landscape features.

Walking the Leyline

The group that spent seven weeks trekking across England had no use for car travel, public transport or even cycling. The 800 kilometers were covered by foot, walking a deeply historical and spiritual pathway.

Awakening Albion is a book that documents the experience, beginning in Cornwall and crossing the old country to East Anglia, along the ancient Michael and Mary ley lines. It features the diary entries, poems and written memories of around 20 – 30 contributors who participated in the pilgrimage.

Tomb of previously unknown pharaonic queen found in Egypt

ancient egyptian tomb

The tomb of Princess Shert Nebti in Abu Sir, south of Cairo, dating from around 2,500 BC and discovered in 2012.

Czech archaeologists have unearthed the tomb of a previously unknown queen believed to have been the wife of Pharaoh Neferefre who ruled 4,500 years ago, officials in Egypt said Sunday.

The tomb was discovered in Abu Sir, an Old Kingdom necropolis southwest of Cairo where there are several pyramids dedicated to pharaohs of the Fifth Dynasty, including Neferefre.

The name of his wife had not been known before the find, Antiquities Minister Mamdouh al-Damaty said in a statement.

He identified her as Khentakawess, saying that for the “first time we have discovered the name of this queen who had been unknown before the discovery of her tomb”.

That would make her Khentakawess III, as two previous queens with the same name have already been identified.

Her name and rank had been inscribed on the inner walls of the tomb, probably by the builders, Damaty said.

This discovery will help us shed light on certain unknown aspects of the Fifth Dynasty, which along with the Fourth Dynasty, witnessed the construction of the first pyramids,” he added.

Miroslav Barta, who heads the Czech Institute of Egyptology mission who made the discovery, said the tomb was found in Neferefre’s funeral complex.

“This makes us believe that the queen was his wife,” Barta said, according to the statement.

An official at the antiquities ministry said the tomb dated from the middle of the Fifth Dynasty (2994-2345 BC).

Archaeologists also found around 30 utensils, 24 made of limestone and four of copper, the statement added.
