Newsletter, August 2012

NASA Icebridge, Arctic Circle

Hello Everyone,

Here is the latest newsletter from my website. John and I are soon to make a voyage across the ‘Top of the Earth’ we shall be away from the end of August to end of September 2012. I shall be making notes and intend to write articles upon our return.

Summer Arctic Storm

This Rare Arctic Summer Storm early in August is a little challenging. We are not booked to visit Greenland but we are to visit Iceland. Let us see what happens.

But before you read on, have a quick look at this short time-lapse video of sea ice and weather conditions in the central Arctic Ocean from early July through August 8, recorded by one of the two autonomous cameras set on the sea ice near the North Pole each spring by a research team from the University of Washington. Note: The center of the storm is hundreds of miles away from the drifting sea ice cameras.

NASA released a remarkable satellite image (above) of the Arctic storm discussed below. Click for background and technical details.

Map of Arctic Ice

The National Snow and Ice Data Center has posted on what it calls “a most interesting Arctic summer,” and that is certainly the case, given this week’s powerful and rare summer storm, which is churning the Arctic Ocean’s already thin and reduced sea ice cover.

In the third installment in a running series of posts on the potent storm, the Arctic Sea Ice blog, a popular aggregator of all things related to the sheath of ice floating on Arctic seas, has proposed calling it the “Great Arctic Cyclone of 2012.”

However, the effects of an individual strong storm, like that observed in early August, can be complex. While much of the region influenced by the August cyclone experienced a sudden drop in temperature, areas influenced by winds from the south experienced a rise in temperature. Coincident with the storm, a large area of low concentration ice in the East Siberian Sea (concentrations typically below 50%) rapidly melted out. On three consecutive days (August 7, 8, and 9), sea ice extent dropped by nearly 200,000 square kilometers (77,220 square miles). This could be due to mechanical break up of the ice and increased melting by strong winds and wave action during the storm. However, it may be simply a coincidence of timing, given that the low concentration ice in the region was already poised to rapidly melt out.

Our Solar System

With all the recent notes about a “revealing” of our heavenly “off-planet” neighbours showing themselves at the Athletics Stadium during the Olympic Games, I thoughht it time we brought you a nice website which gives a rather picturesque and interactive overview of our solar system, and the stars in our galaxies.

Website for Solar System Scope.

Solar System Scope Website

The website is called Solar System Scope, and having the sound turned on gives a rather neat audio and visual experience to the visitor. You can visit planets, rotate them, measure the distance between planets and far off stars, and see the constellations and the individual stars. Whatever will they think of next?

Egypt Pyramids Discovered On Google Earth, Researcher Says

Here is another interesting piece of news if you haven’t seen it already about a new ancient Egyptian Pyramid discovered

Archeology News Network describes one of the possible complexes:

One of the complex sites contains a distinct, four-sided, truncated, pyramidal shape that is approximately 140 feet in width. This site contains three smaller mounds in a very clear formation, similar to the diagonal alignment of the Giza Plateau pyramids.

Four sided lost pyramid.

Further research is needed confirm the findings, however Micol thinks the images tell all.

“The images speak for themselves. It’s very obvious what the sites may contain, but field research is needed to verify they are, in fact, pyramids,” Micol said, according to Discovery News.

According to, an Egyptologist verified that the sites were previously undiscovered.

An Olympic Pyramid?

While the world’s finest athletes put on a show around Britain’s Olympic venues yesterday, the moon staged a special display of its own. A full moon tinged dusky gold rose through Tower Bridge’s Olympic banner, briefly forming a unique sixth ring on the London skyline.

2012 Messages: Predictions and revelations about 2012 and the Grand Shift of the Ages

Book Cover, 2012 Messages

2012 Messages is a collection of detailed predictions and insights from notable psychics, channels and intuitives about 2012 and beyond. One chapter contains the work of Valerie Barrow.

We are headed into new territory where there are new rules. Humanity and the Earth itself are evolving now—a lightening fast quickening—and we are being offered the chance to take back our power and use it to create a New Earth.

We are waist-deep in this transition and the road ahead may be rough for a time, but through foreknowledge, spiritual understanding and the release of the fear of change and the unknown, we will all be a part of the birth of a new consciousness.

Gathered from over a dozen psychics and channelers, intuitives, even the Mayan Elders themselves, comes needed information about the time period we are living in right now – 2012.

Valerie Barrow has been a light-worker for many years. Author Craig Howell has included material from the Cosmic Sai Baba, as channelled by Valerie Barrow. The author also mentions how helpful the messages given by Alcheringa have been.

Is this the “End Times”, or just the end of a time and the beginning of another? The sources say we are at the threshold of the birthing of a new consciousness, but with birth comes upheaval as the old ways struggle to remain in a new world where they have no place. We are in this transition from the old to the new. It is coming on so quickly, we will barely have time to catch our breath between the massive changes that are about to occur in our economic systems, on the earth and within ourselves.

This time has been foretold in prophecy after prophecy for thousands of years, but known mostly through the attention on the Mayan Calendar called The Tzolkin, which some say ends on December 21, 2012 after over 5200 years. This has caused great fear and uncertainty among the masses.

This book answers many questions about this year and this time period we are in: A Grand Shift of the Ages. There are many possibilities, but one thing is certain: after the transition is complete, things will never be the same again.

  • What may happen on December 21, 2012?
  • Will there be a pole shift or magnetic pole reversal?
  • Is time speeding up as the Earth’s rotation slows down?
  • Are we entering a “time of truth” where all will be revealed?
  • Will this be the year of almost instant manifestation of our focus?
  • Are we at a crossroads in our evolution and which path will we choose?
  • How could releasing fears about 2012 be your best protection?
  • Could the world financial system shift to a new model?
  • Will we witness the start of the collapse of the political system in the U.S.?
  • What wild weather or earth changes could occur and where?
  • Are we shifting along with the Earth into a higher dimension?
  • Could a massive solar flare create havoc with our grid?
  • What are the Mayan Elders messages to the world from their own prophecies and teachings?

Craig Howell has been a published writer since 1993 when he created and published his holisitc/metaphysical monthly publication, “The Wheel” He has since created four books: “A Flower Unfolds” (spiritual giftbook), “Through the Eyes of Kwan Yin” (Q&A with a Kwan Yin channel), “Spiritual Teachings for Young Souls” (basic teachings for teen empowerment) and “2012 Messages”. He has contributed to many publications online and in print, most recently in Dell Horoscope Magazine.

This book is available in several versions. You may order this book online.

I have listened to Craig’s CDs and found the sound was from another world. “I immediately, when listening to Mayan Days of Sound felt my eyes clear and my body buzz all over. The sound I felt was clearing and balancing my energy field. I asked John to listen and he shivered and then said, he felt his body buzzing also. Highly recommend people to listen to his work.”

Crystal Lights Lady

A friend of Valerie’s writes about crystal lights in her hair. She is a lightworker and works with crystals.
(We have blurred the lady’s face for privacy.)

They do not always come through very clear in emails. I have very dark hair all that sparkly stuff is them. They change the color sometimes of my hair in pictures to violet or blue. They are like a cloud in my hair that moves. I feel them constantly sometimes stronger than others.

The Baltic Sea UFO Anomaly

“John and I are also travelling the Baltic Sea so this is an interesting piece of information for us to think about while visiting Sweden and Finland.”

A team of salvage divers has discovered an unexplained object resting at the bottom of the Baltic Sea near Sweden. “This thing turned up. My first reaction was to tell the guys that we have a UFO here on the bottom,” said Peter Lindberg, the leader of the amateur treasure hunters. Sonar readings show that the mysterious object is about 60 meters across, or, about the size of a jumbo jet. And it’s not alone. Nearby on the sea floor is another, smaller object with a similar shape. Even more fascinating, both objects have “drag marks” behind them on the sea floor, stretching back more than 400 feet. It could just be another shipwreck. Or, mud. But Lindberg says the ship theory doesn’t really hold up because of the unusually large size of the objects.

Electrical Equipment Stops Working Near Baltic Sea UFO

Object found on sea bed

The OceanX team exploring a UFO-shaped object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea has claimed that their electrical equipments stop working when they approach within 200 meters. Professional diver Stefan Hogerborn, who is part of the Ocean X team which is exploring the anomaly, said some of the teams cameras and the teams satellite phone would refuse to work when directly above the object, and would only work once they had sailed away.

“Anything electric out there – and the satellite phone as well – stopped working when we were above the object,” the Daily Mail quoted him as saying. “And then we got away about 200 meters and it turned on again, and when we got back over the object it didnt work,” he said. Diver Peter Lindberg admitted,

“We have experienced things that I really couldnt imagine and I have been the team’s biggest skeptic regarding these different kind of theories, I was kind of prepared just to find a cliff or outcrop or pile of mud but it was nothing like that, so for me it has been a missing experience I must say,” he said

“I am one hundred percent convinced and confident that we have found something in May of last year that is very, very, very unique,” member Dennis Asberg said.

There are perfectly straight lines and angles embedded into the smooth structure and a diver is photographed at lower right.

The lines can be made by natural causes, but they look very man made.The grooves are about 1-1.5 meter wide and 0.5-1.5 meters deep. The disc has a completely circular plate-like exterior, 180 meters in circumference. Object is 200 foot across mushroom shaped comprising a thick pillar rising eight meters out of the seabed with a four meter thick dome on top rising a total of 12 meters (approx 40 feet) high above the surrounding seabed

There are visible formations on top of the object, which are set at a 90 degree angle and look like passageways or walls, as well as something that looks like it could be a staircase.

There are stone circles, like “fireplaces” of hard black “almost petrified” burnt looking stone each a few inches in diameter, like 4 or 5 pearls in a necklace in various arrangements on top of the dome. It might be a meteorite, or the base from a U-boat, – or a UFO?

“The Ocean X team did get some pictures, such as these soot-covered rocks that encircled an egg-shaped hole which went into the object at its centre, and have no idea what any of it means. There is a long 985-foot runway, skid marks, or a downhill path that is flattened at the seabed with the object at the end of it.

Coda: Cold Seas …

Here’s the full size image of the Ice Bridge in the Arctic Circle, which we used for the Newsletter Theme. Ice? Ouch!

NASA Photgraph of the Ice Bridge in the Artic Circle.

This photo was taken over the Patagonian ice fields, on November 23, 2009. Hmmm, methinks “upstairs” has played a wee joke on us, giving us this picture taken on that day.

Finally, the shipment of the reprint of my second book Alcheringa, When the ancestors were first created has arrived.

We are pleased to offer a promotion of 2 books for AUD $20.00 Alcheringa, when the first ancestors were created and The Book of Love, by a Medium.

So send me your order on our Book Order page and I shall write to you.

Book cover - Alcheringa, when the first ancestors were created

So many people are having experiences; Will all join me in a prayer for all who suffer in these times of change? Time seems to be speeding up (as Cosmic Sai Baba confirmed) …

So you must not feel that you are running out of time but rather the time that you match with the Dimension—that you are in now—is changing. You can feel it—you feel … that everything is racing—even young people speak of this as if they have not got enough time to do everything they want to.

… and the world is entirely made up of vibrations. Let us all keep our thoughts the highest, and send the vibration of love to all who need. We recall the affirmation that is so needed by the peoples of our times:

I am the Pure Light of Consciousness
Penetrating Everwhere,
and bringing everyone into the Light of God.

Blessings be with you and Universal love. Val.
