Wednesday's Words for October 22, 2014

Yes, the temperature has dropped, and the forecast warns we could be in for a winter to rival the last one, as far as the cold is concerned. Already the winds of autumn are blowing, and boy, are they nippy. We’ve had rain the last few days, the icy-cold kind of rain that gives us a hint of what is to come. I may or may not have told you, but I consider October to be the first of our six months of winter. October to March inclusive is on average too cold, and too damp. And looking at it that way, by New Year’s Day we are at the halfway point, instead of just a couple of weeks in!

As the winds blow, and the rain falls, what could possibly be better, you might ask, than hopping on a plane and heading to the Caribbean for a week of sun, sand, and surf? Let me answer that question for you: being the one who inherits the house all to herself when the other one flies south.

Each year, my husband takes our daughter on a week-long trip. It’s his way of saying thank you, because she gets up every day before the butt-crack of dawn and drives him to work. Our “second daughter” does this as well, on the days when she works the early day shift. Last year, she went with them and they all flew to Las Vegas. This year, she couldn’t get away, so it’s just the two of them.

He’d asked our daughter where she wanted to go and she confessed that she would really, really like to take a cruise. To give my beloved credit, he did look into it.

Now, I feel I must digress for just a moment. You see, while Mr. Ashbury and I have been married for forty-two years, we are not the same, in several interesting ways. To demonstrate one, in this case relevant difference between us, allow me to recount an episode that occurred over a decade ago, when our oldest son was getting married.

Our daughter came to me, and, knowing that we would give her brother and his wife a monetary gift, she wanted to know how much that would be. I replied that we were still in negotiations, and as one of us was generous and the other cheap, agreement had not yet been reached.

She laughed, raised her hand, and said, “I know, I know, let me guess which of you is the cheap one,” all the while looking at her father.

He prefers the term, “frugal”.

So, as you can probably infer, my daughter is not going to be taking her first ever cruise this month. I think that is just as well, and I’ve already told her that a cruise is more of a mother-daughter vacation. Instead, my husband was able to get a good package—all inclusive, including air, accommodations, and meals, for a very reasonable price.

They leave this coming Sunday, and will be back the following Sunday and are headed to the Caribbean. And I, dear friends, I get my house to myself, with no interruptions, no scheduling, no fetching and carrying and I can guarantee you after the initial cleaning as the airport limo drives out sight, very little housework, as well.

I have no plans to go anywhere, except perhaps to visit my son and his wife and go to bingo with them one night.

Yes, it is quite possible that I will get just a bit lonely...probably the day before my husband comes home. And that is fine, that is how it should be. That allows me the very best circumstance of all.

I’ll be happy to see him go, and happy to welcome him home.

Love,
Morgan

Blurb:  
[Ménage Amour ManLove: Erotic Alternative Ménage a Trois Romance, M/M/M, HEA]
In an entertainment routine called Drag Show, Vince becomes Violet Whispers. Vince is a gay man, who not only craves cross-dressing, but it gives him sexual pleasure to see Violet staring back in a mirror. Even more satisfying is being in the arms of a man while in drag. Derek fulfills those fantasies.
Derek is a dominant man who orchestrates erotic scenarios, or games. The thought of never knowing what Derek has planned keeps Vince in almost constant arousal. So when Derek uses his twin brother, Alec, in one of his scenarios, Vince must come to terms with new romantic feelings for his partner’s brother. 
When Alec becomes a part of their lives on a more permanent basis, Vince struggles with acknowledging his love for his partner’s brother. Alec is bold, like Derek, but more soft-spoken. Even though Vince knows Derek wants him to follow his heart, he is afraid of allowing another man into his life. 
Note: The first two chapters were originally published as a free short story on ManLoveAuthors.com.

Angelic Forecast ~ #320


Another hesitation... then, a women who has not spoken yet, says, "We have always relied on remaining undetected. However, we have remnants of lightbeam weaponry."

"Remnants," I repeat. "That doesn't sound too promising."

"We have the remnants and the original designs," another man, who reminds me some of my Dhuroth speaks.

"It becomes a matter of time to become prepared," the original woman speaks. "I am Oleila of the Phoenix Seven House."


I take an instant to assimilate what has occurred, where I am, and the scene before me. This must be a divine appointment, I think.

"Oleila, what a lovely name," I begin. "If there is a way we on Mars can assist you..."

Oleila smiles, a genuine expression that shines her dark eyes. "Let us dine and learn about each other. For the moment, we are safe. I will have the men collect all that we know about the lightbeam weapons. Then, we will discuss a trade for any assistance your people are able to provide."

"How may we serve your jet?" one of the men asks. "She is alive, is she not?"

I nod. "Very much alive. She feeds from my energy field." I turn placing my palm on my pet jet. Instantly, the transference of frequency occurs. Then, I create a bond that will let me know if she is threatened in any way, and give her permission to defend herself.

I will take no chances, even though I sense no duplicity or danger from these people.

"Please," I begin, "I would like to learn about you and your civilization."

TO BE CONTINUED...

ANGELIC FORECAST ~

Miracles and Mayhem ... the world goes topsy turvy at this time on the cosmic calendar. Hang on for the bucking bronco ride.

On the AWAKENING front, the AWAKENING FLASHPOINT is here. At this turnpoint toward the Aquarian Age many of us will be altering our course in life. While for some of us this change in path will be a series of subtle events... however, for most of us the motivation to change our direction in life will be strong and immediate. 

Know this, if there appears to be no way, a WAY will open up before us. For, this is a soul appointment.

On the magickal, mystical front, this week the 'Mages of Ages Lost' use spooky scare tactics on those who sinisterly cast forth the power of magick against humankind. Think the dreams of *Scrooge* meet the movie "Nightmare on Elm Street".

Out of this, *some* of the so-called, corrupt 'rich and powerful' will make amends, thus mending their evil ways. However, many will not accept this message, and will reap the fire-tornadic winds of hell.

On the personal front, the cosmic dynamics from the previous week continues, and only heightens.

"... lots of high-flying moments this week, and likely lots of low spots... this will be a slam-bash time for many. The way to navigate your way through is to listen to your gut while respecting your own inner wisdom. 

Also, heartbreak and/or heart love could become central in your life. If there is heartbreak, this will pass and bring blessings. If this is a heart-loving time, treasure every moment, and nourish the relationship(s) -- pets included, of course. For, this is part of humanity's evolution-revolution renaissance."

As well, this week, a major opportunity is likely to rear up. Give it the eagle eye, and if it looks good, hop on and go for the big wild ride.

On the paranormal front, at the approach of All Hallow's Eve it's time to lift the barriers inside your mind. Glimpse your deepest fantasies. Take a step into otherworlds, whatever unique worlds you observe in your mind's eye. This exploration can be in any realm or in several realms.

Another opportunity is to see parts of yourself that have been off limits. Then, ask yourself: What psychic and/or super powers do you want?

And say, what about all those UFOS being reported these days? Here's one HEADLINE-SNIPPET:

"UFO Turns Night Into Day In Recife, Brazil (Video) CONTRIBUTOR: Mort Amsel. via Disclose TV A flash of light in northern Brazil was so bright that it illuminated the sky, temporarily making the dark night sky as bright as day. The incident occurred on the night of Wednesday, October 15 in Brazil’s Recife region. At approximately 10:20 p.m., witnesses saw a UFO... " ~beforeitsnews.com~

On the land changes front, from the previous week: "the season of the superstorm... for the next three months storms with fierce winds are likely to relentlessly lash various land and coastlines areas across the planet. Large earthquakes continue to shake, rattle, and roll Mother Earth. Look for more quake swarms.

Volcanic activity continues to increase worldwide, and there could be a major eruption on Hawaii in the near future." Plus, don't forget the sinkholes forming all over the planet at this time.

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Terrifying Tornado Clusters on the Rise
Tornadoes are touching down in clusters more often than 50 years ago, a new study reports. On some days, more than 30 twisters strike the United States." ~accuweather.com~ 


THIS WEEK, let the autumnal sunlight bathe you and illuminate your spirit. Walk upon Mother Earth and listen to her many songs. Some are just for you.

THIS FORECAST IS CONTINUED AT *TITLE MAGIC* ~titlemagic.blogspot.com~

Walk out into the Arizona night desert, let the wildlife have a good meal with the hope her death will be quick.

Or does she dare trust the mysterious stranger suddenly before her?

Handsome as sin and all in black, he emerges out of the darkness.

Sedona wonders if the stranger on a superspeed motorcycle is her savior from the brutal endtimes.

Or, is he a roving cult member of the New World Order, hunting his next blood sacrifice?

Wednesday's Words for October 15, 2014

There can be no doubt left in anyone’s mind that summer has fled, and autumn has arrived. We’ve already had one night here in my area where the temperatures dipped down to the freezing mark. The news was filled with warnings about the impending, wide-spread frost.

That warning took me back to my childhood. We grew up in a rural community. My mother and father had purchased the “big house” next door to the “little house” that had been my first home. The lady in the big house had decided to sell, because she’d been widowed. She’d had enough of country living, and planned to move to the nearby small town.

My parents bought the house and kept the one they already had. The plan was to rent out the little one, and make a good portion of the mortgage payment that way. Sadly, the January following the summer this sale took place, my father died. So mom was left a single mother, with three kids, and an old farm house, that sat on three-quarters of an acre of land.

Not a lot of land, but certainly enough to have a good sized garden. I can’t give you the exact dimensions of it but it was large enough that the farmer down the road would come each spring on his tractor to plow and then disc the garden.

It was always full of food. She grew beans, beets, carrots and potatoes. There were rows of tomatoes, broccoli and cabbage. We had melons, and egg plant, and green peppers. The garden was longest, east to west, so the rows ran north to south, and the last two rows at the west end of the garden were always corn.

Did I mention the cucumbers? Man, I hated those things. I hated them because they were not harvested, for the most part, until we got that first frost warning.

Harvest day was a family effort. Being the youngest didn’t get me out of any work at all. While mom and my sister dug and picked, I got to scrub.(I believe my brother had escaped by this point. He’d married and moved off).

We had a metal twin laundry tub that got rolled outside for the occasion, and then filled by the garden hose. And every bean and pepper and potato and cucumber that was harvested, had to be scrubbed.

Holy mother of cold water, did I ever hate that job.

Inevitably, the water wasn’t just cold, it was ice cold—as was the wind that would come up and caress my poor wet little paws.

But that was only part of the reason I hated those cucumbers. The other was what she did with the majority of them after they’d been cleaned and dried.

I don’t see it much down in the U.S. but up here, if you order a burger at a restaurant, one of the condiments you nearly always have brought to the table is green pickle relish. And that is what my mother made with the majority of those cucumbers.

I was drafted each year to help her. Step one was: slice the cucumbers in half, length-wise, and, using a spoon, scoop the seeds out. There would be something like oh, a bushel or two of these green monsters for me to process.

I hated that part so much that I edited it from my memory so that the first time, as an adult, that I attempted to make the relish, I forgot to do it. Seriously. Seedy relish. Ugh.

Then I had to grind the cucumbers, using an old fashion manual crank-operated grinder. The rest, though, was all mom. She would add vinegar and sugar and a large “bouquet garni” that contained cloves and cinnamon and other pickling spices, and she would cook that relish for a few hours over several days. The very sharp and distinctive aroma that relish produced each fall, permeated our house, our clothing and, I’m certain, burned our olfactory senses for at least a month.

But that relish was far superior to anything you could buy in the store—and our pantry was always full, with the bounty of our garden, my mother’s frugality, and all of our family’s hard work.

Love, Morgan

TO SIR WITH LOVE - The Doms of Sybaris Cove 4


I'm so pleased to announce a new release!! TO SIR WITH LOVE is book 4 in my The Doms of Sybaris Cove series!!

You can read more about The Doms of Sybaris Cove on my WEBSITE, but for now, here is a brief overview...

Sybaris...

Founded in 720 BC by Achaean and Troezenian settlers, Sybaris amassed great wealth thanks to its fertile land and busy port. Its inhabitants became famous among the Greeks for their hedonism, feasts, and excesses, to the extent that "sybarite" and "sybaritic" have become bywords for opulent luxury and outrageous pleasure seeking.

The Doms of Sybaris Cove...

In the Gulf of Mexico, southwest of Timbalier Island, is a tropical paradise named Sybaris Cove. The original inhabitants of this island were escaped convicts from various Caribbean islands. They came to the island seeking refuge, but instead found greed and jealousy.

William and Robert Raleigh, brothers who made their fortune running rum and engaging in other illegal activities, hid out on the island in 1945. Taking advantage of the infighting among the natives, they began buying up land and laying down roots, promising the people of the island order and peace.

Instead, they were joined by cousins Agapito and Iago Durante, who were just as corrupt as the Raleigh brothers. The island soon became the private plaything of the Raleighs and Durantes, and the natives their servants. But the natives, who had brought with them a blend of voodoo, Santeria, and dark magic, had their own way of dealing with Robert, William, Agapito, Iago, and their sons.

The sons of both families started a mail order business, making and selling floggers, paddles, and other leather fetish toys. Phoebe's Playthings grew into a multi-million dollar corporation that the Raleigh and Durante ancestors now run from the island.

However, the male ancestors of William, Robert, Agapito, and Iago share more than their thriving business and paradise. If they try to leave the island, they die.

Someone put a curse on them, and no one knows where it originated, or how to break it, but they definitely know it's real...


BLURB for TO SIR WITH LOVE:

[Siren Ménage Everlasting: Erotic Consensual BDSM Ménage a Trois Romance, M/F/M, spanking, flogging, paddling, knife play, wax play, sex toys, HEA]

Leta Da Costa has been Nando Durante’s submissive for three years, and she would do anything for him. The pair are best friends with Graham Raleigh, who lost his wife and infant son in a house fire two years ago. When Nando asks Leta for a one time fantasy where he and Graham top her in play and have sex with her, she agrees. But for Graham, one time isn’t enough.

As Nando works to overcome his jealousy and realizes he’d rather share Leta than lose her, Leta has past issues of her own to conquer. The three commit to their new ménage relationship as Leta falls in love with Graham as well.

When a series of fires at a nearby construction site send all three to the area to help, Nando becomes trapped in a building. Can Leta help Graham face his worst nightmare to save Nando’s life?

Angelic Forecast ~ #319

 
"We follow the Law of One," the woman who spoke before says, as she moves beside the man. "In secret we built this subterranean city complex preparing for the day when the Dark Ones seized rule of Earth."

"Wow," I say in English after several seconds to let everything soak in. Plus, there is a faint flowing music I hear. Intriguing and somehow familiar, although I can't place where I might have heard it before.

"If you built in secret, do the Dark Ones know of your existence?" I ask.


There is a silence which does not bode well, and the group take turns glancing at one another.

"Recently," the man answers, his face drawn, his dark eyes shadowed, "we have reason to believe our presence has been detected."

"At first, we believed you and your jet to be an enemy probe," the woman continues, "until we analyzed your genetic composition."

My curiosity kicks in over 'analyzing my genes' ... but there are far more important issues at hand. "Do you have a good defense system against the Dark Ones?"

Another hesitation... then, a women who has not spoke yet, says, "We have always relied on remaining undetected. However, we have remnants of lightbeam weaponry."

"Remnants," I repeat. "That doesn't sound too promising."

"We have the remnants and the original designs," another man, who reminds me some of my Dhuroth speaks.

"It becomes a matter of time to become prepared," the original woman speaks. "I am Oleila of the Phoenix Seven House."

ANGELIC FORECAST ~

The Clash and Smash of Civilization is Heard Round the World

As the global technocrats attempt to seize the reins of societies worldwide, the energy-force of the Aquarian Age battles back in an epic struggle of 'let freedom reign' versus another dark age of tyranny.

On the AWAKENING front, this week the focus is on the return of true magick. For, many of us are gradually AWAKENING to the strength of our real 'powers'.

In opposition to this inner knowledge and 'knowing', the dark-side controllers will offer more outrageous, tabloid, bread-and-circus entertainments -- all while whipping up a black cauldron of endless fear.

On the magickal, mystical front, this week the 'Mages of Ages Lost' will slash and bash the false matrix of the Viper magicians. Thus, revealing a hidden TRUTH that will shake those in know to their very cores.

For, the deception of humanity has been so complete that what is often spiritually called the LIGHT SIDE is merely another layer of dogma and lies. Or, a false paradigm that has been staged by greater forces, and is meant to keep all of us trapped in third dimension materialism.

However, those Benevolents who operate in the LOVE vibe will be increasing their assistance to humankind, and showing the way.

On the personal front, lots of high-flying moments this week, and likely lots of low spots... this will be a slam-bash time for many. The way to navigate your way through is to listen to your gut while respecting your own inner wisdom. 
Also, heartbreak and/or heart love could become central in your life. If there is heartbreak, this will pass and bring blessings. If this is a heart-loving time, treasure every moment, and nourish the relationship(s) -- pets included, of course. For, this is part of humanity's evolution-revolution renaissance.

On the paranormal front, a time of great weirding is upon us. This can be the good, the bad, the beautiful, or the ugly. Dimensional portals never opened before, and portals long closed, are now being triggered by both the dark-siders and the Benevolents. Out of this, as stated before, beast cryptids and strange beings will likely continue to be observed. And thus, reported to alternative paranormal sites. Stay alert.

On the Mars front, HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Humanoid statue discovered on Mars?
An incredible image of what looks like a giant humanoid statue bearing a remarkable likeness to ancient figures carved thousands of years ago on Earth, has been discovered on Mars." ~examiner.com/article/humanoid-statue-discovered-on-mars-video

On the UFO front, HEADLINES from Examiner.com ~

UFO over Florida hovers over Carnival Cruise ship, witnesses claim [Video]
UFO dives for cover in clouds over France (Video)
UFO news: UFO caught on camera complete with 'aliens'
UFO stalks passenger jet near Seattle (Video)
UFO chases chemtrail jet over Los Angeles (Video)
Black triangle UFO spooking townsfolk of Shropshire, England

On the truth front, TRUTH becomes a giant speeding spear at this point in cosmic history/herstory. This Divine Spear of Truth penetrates the heart of every living being. Thus, to encourage an *eyes open, ears open, senses open* attitude.

To free humankind, the past continues to reveal itself. HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Latest News From The Excavations At Gunung Padang, The Mysterious Ancient Pyramid In Indonesia That Is Rewriting History ~grahamhancock.com/forum/HancockG10-Gunung-Padang-Latest.php~

On the land changes front, the season of the superstorm... for the next three months storms with fierce winds are likely to relentlessly lash various land and coastlines areas across the planet. Large earthquakes continue shake, rattle, and roll Mother Earth. Look for more quake swarms.

Volcanic activity continues to increase worldwide, and there could be a major eruption on Hawaii in the near future.

A Gay Transgender Man’s Thoughts on National Coming Out Day 2014

WARNING:  The links contained within this post will take you to sites with content for mature readers only.  However, this post is suitable for a PG audience.


Andrew Jericho Website (259x325)
Today marks the 26th year anniversary of National Coming Out Day. The event began 26 years ago, founded by the Human Rights Campaign, on the anniversary of the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. The day is celebrated as an opportunity to honor all those who have come out, or support equality, either as members of the LGBTQ community or as straight allies.
HRC’s theme is Live Your Truth. As a gay transgender man, I have known my truth since the age of five, but have not always had the opportunity to openly live it. In sharing my thoughts as someone who has lived on both sides of the closet, I hope to not only inspire, but to give comfort to others searching for their own answers.
For over two decades, my partner and I lived in fear. We both had circumstances where coming out was impossible. The fact we lived in a conservative part of the South contributed to our decision to remain in the closet. In addition, we had a young family which have always come first. John and I love our son and daughter dearly. They are our biological children, conceived through artificial insemination, and I gave birth to them by C-section.
On September 27, 2013, John and I came out together. I made the announcement we were both gay, and I was a transgender man.  Our decision to openly live our truth occurred two days before my fortieth birthday.  As that milestone approached, so did my fear of living the second half of my life in hiding.  When I remember my feelings during that time, I always return to the words of Kurt Cobain:  “I would rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.”
Love and hate are two emotions we have encountered from others since coming out.  The positive outpouring of support from family, friends, and my readers has been heartwarming.  John and I appreciate all the kind words and messages we have received. Still yet, there have been those who have chosen to share negativity with us.   Such opinions are the product(s) of fear; a lack of understanding of LGBTQ topics; learned behaviors and ideas; and old-fashioned hatred. As an activist, one of the ways I try to promote change is to raise awareness of the fact that LGBTQ individuals are human beings. Life is a journey. All of us are transitioning to something. 
At the end of the day, how have I decided to live my truth?  Always be proud of who you are. The words of others do not define you.  No one needs another person’s permission to live the life they desire. None of us have the right to define anyone except ourselves.  We are our own truth.  
To read my original coming out story visit:  Coming Out as a Gay Transgender Man.  Also, to learn about the changes in the lives of John and I one year later read:  Coming Out Once Year Later as a Gay Transgender Man.
I enjoy hearing from all of my readers, and look forward to your e-mails.  Remember Love is Love…Period.

Wednesday's Words for October 8, 2014

The Ashbury family has grown by one. Our second great-grandchild, our first great-grandson, Archer William Anthony, has arrived. He’s the second child for our grandson David, (our daughter’s son). David gave his new baby “Anthony” for his third name to honor his late uncle, whom he loved, and who had been like a father to him.

I’ve said more than once that being a grandmother is my best role, ever. I’d have to lump great-grandmother-hood under that same umbrella, although with this next generation, I have to admit, there is a bit more of a distance between baby and me.

I can recall what fun it was for me when, at the ripe old age of thirty-seven, I’d tell people I was a granny. Their reactions were always so very interesting to watch. It goes almost without saying that at thirty-seven I was the same age as some new, first-time moms. I always believed there was something good to be said about having gotten such an early start with our family. I reasoned that as a young grandmother, I’d be more energetic, and better able to cope with the wee ones than a woman in her sixties or seventies.

But my theory didn’t exactly pan out the way I expected. You see, I discovered one of the truths of life. Going back to dealing with a babe-in-arms after my own children had grown and gone was a lot more work than I’d anticipated – certainly more work than when I started out with my first-born all those years ago.

You may recall from past essays that my beloved and I, over the last few years, had been fairly involved in raising the two children of our late son. While their mother—our second daughter—first went to college to get her certificate and then got her position as a nurse at a hospital about twenty-five miles away, we took care of the two kids a lot. They’d be with us for the evening and overnight, when she had night shifts. And they’d be with us until after supper when she worked days. Making supper in those days was often a case of cooking for five. I sent their mother home with a plate of food as often as I could, to save her the time and the work of cooking for herself.

Now those two grandchildren are old enough to be left on their own. Of course, we and our daughter are close enough, just five minutes away, should they need us. But they manage very well all by themselves. Well, them, and their very big dog.

There won’t be any babysitting of the youngest members of the family, by the oldest. There are enough aunties and uncles and grannies and grandpas, all in the thirty to forty year age range, that we can leave that responsibility—and joy—to them.

From us, for this new generation, there will be hugs and kisses, songs and rocking, and, of course, candy and cookies and chocolate and gifts. We will listen to their tales of daring-do, smile with pleasure when they arrive, and do the same when they go home.

We’ll sit back and watch as our grandchildren—who are still babies to us—learn to become parents, and as our children discover the great good bliss of being grandparents.

I’m recalling an ongoing conversation we had with our son, Anthony. When our kids were growing up, we used to tell them that the family structure was very simple: there was “us” and there was “them”. This basic structure, we assured all our kids, permeated all aspects of life, as they or we knew it.

Sometimes they would want things, and we’d say, “well, if you were an us, it would be fine. But you’re a them, so it’s not.” Anthony, more than the other two, really, really wanted to be an “us”.

Just after his first child was born, we visited them at the hospital. He wore this big grin, not only because he because, he said, he’d realized that he’d finally made it! He was finally an “us”.

We had to disabuse him of that notion right away, of course. His father said, “Son, you’re still a ‘them’, and you will always and forever be a them. But it’s not all bad news, because, you see, that sweet little baby girl of yours in there? She’s an ‘us’.”

Ah, when you’re an “us”, life is truly good.

Love,
Morgan

Angelic Forecast ~ #318

 
"We speak Martian," one of the lovely small women says.

So, they know. "Hello," I say in Martian. "I am Sh’raka, mate of Dhuroth... originally from Earth."

"Yes," one of the men steps forward. "We know who you are. Your cherub friend, Volcano, spoke to us not a month ago. Earth time."

"Volcano told you I was... yes, he knows these things." My curiosity aroused, I slowly begin to climb out of my jet. "I hope he spoke favorably. Or I'm in a world of hurt," I say in a bantering tone.

"You are welcome here," the woman says, the one who spoke before. "For, we battle the same enemy."


Immediately, I ask, "What can you tell me about these arriving demons? Or is it about those foul psychopaths who open the portal?"

Silence ensues for a moment. One man steps forward. "We are of the same ancient bloodline as those you battle." He pauses, his gaze scrutinizing my face. "There was a parting of the ways before the ultimate demise of the Atlantean culture, as you would call it."

"We follow the Law of One," the woman who spoke before says, as she moves beside the man. "In secret we built this subterranean city complex preparing for the day when the Dark Ones seized rule of Earth."

"Wow," I say in English after several seconds to let everything soak in. Plus, there is a faint flowing music I hear. Intriguing and somehow familiar, although I can't place where I might heard it before.

"If you built in secret, do the Dark Ones know of your existence?" I ask.

TO BE CONTINUED...

ANGELIC FORECAST ~

The Crossroads of Destiny... the next decision point for humanity now arrives. Do we descend into the chaos of conflict and more war? Or do we ascend on soul wings toward ever more freedom, ever more joy, and ever more strength and dignity?

On the AWAKENING front, On the night of October 7-8 the second total lunar eclipse of 2014 will take place. This is the second of four eclipses in the ongoing lunar tetrad. The meaning: this Blood Moon eclipse is partly about AWAKENING TO CHANGE.

At this time, full moon clarity belongs to humanity -- both for every individual and for the people as a wide world community. This means you have the opportunity to clearly SEE the path you are currently on and/or the path you want to be on. Ask yourself this question: Has the time come to alter course?

Meanwhile, on the world stage CHANGE will escalate and be explosive. Firestorms of change erupt from the smallest towns to the top political ranks of super-tech countries. Out of this, a new generation of heroines and heroes arises, leading the people out from under the crushing boot of total oppression, and toward Aquarian Age freedom. Get ready.

On the magickal, mystical front, this week the 'Mages of Ages Lost' get down and fierce, hacking their lightblades through the Viper magician's protective web. For, the cosmic time is here. These soulless ones are about to fall on the blades of their own evil deeds.

Over a long course of time, the Viper elite have been masterfully tricked into believing they will never karmically pay for their heinous atrocities. Further, they believe the whole of humankind is about to bow down to their superior rule. Thus, they have become vulnerable to final elimination.

Thus, as the gates of All Hallow's Eve open wide, a yawning chasm awaits these mass-murdering evildoers. Many will trip and fall in, consumed by the roaring, punishing volcano of flames.

On the personal front, this is truly a magickal week, meaning there are strong energies available which can give you and your plans a significant boost. Sit quietly and tune in as you are able, then attempt to feel the flow of power. Gently imagine what you would like to accomplish most, then simply let it go.

This is also a week to leap ahead in one of your projects, or to forge ahead toward one of your goals. For, all signs say GO.

The focus is also on relationships, and the heart. Once again, evaluations must be made if there is serious conflict. Is it wise to continue the relationship? Or should there be a parting of the ways?

Further, for some passions will flare deliciously, and romances will be kindled. This is an ideal time to fall in love with the right partner.

On the paranormal front, the ghosties are coming out in droves for the spooktacular season. Watch out for heightened supernatural activity this year, and don't let the cryptids bite.

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: Sasquatch Watching a Passing Train

Also, there will be several major UFO events in the near future which 'could' gain national and worldwide attention. This is all by design of the 'Benevolents'.

Meanwhile, the evil side of the breakaway civilization is attempting to co-op the UFO phenomena. This will 'not' ultimately be successful.

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "UFO Mother Ship Seen On Live TV In Erie Pennsylvania- 3rd One This Week (Video And Photos) ~ CONTRIBUTOR: N. Morgan. There's been another sighting in Erie PA of what appears to be a very sophisticated UFO. It floats casually behind a reporter in one frame and then lazily floats around buildings in another frame. When I first watched it, I had wondered if perhaps it was a..." ~beforeitsnews.com~

NEWS SNIPPET: "The BBC caught a brightly lit object in the sky above a protest in Hong Kong. In the footage, the UFO can be seen entering on the left side of the screen, hovering momentarily, then suddenly shooting straight up and out of sight." ~coasttocoastam.com/pages/ufo-over-protesters-in-hong-kong~

On the land changes front, as stated before, winter and winter storms are likely to come early for some regions. Prepare for the harshest conditions...just in case.

This coming month, along with more major volcanic and earthquake activity, look for news about the spreading, worsening drought in California, and in the Western States. Meanwhile, the battle for water rights continues, and heats up to a rolling boil.

In truth, there are good workable technologies to generate the needed water. However, the dark-side controllers want this battle to keep viciously brewing. Thus, to divide and weaken the people of these areas, all while nefariously causing a food shortage for the people at large.

As well, super typhoons will continue to ravage the coastlines and cities as has happened recently in the Baja region, and is now occurring in Japan.

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Deadly Typhoon Phanfone Lashes Japan ~ Kristina Pydynowski, Senior Meteorologist ~ October 5, 2014; 10:14 PM ET
The southern coast of Honshu, from the prefectures of Wakayama to Chiba, will bear the brunt of Phanfone's fury. Destructive wind gusts of 160 to 195 kph (100 to 120 mph) threaten to cause widespread and significant damage to trees and structures. Residents should prepare for extensive and lengthy power outages."

On the truth front, TRUTH -- what has been denied to humanity for ages -- explodes like a white-light bomb over the entire world at this cosmic turnpoint.  However, this 'truth light' will affect people to varying degrees. Naturally, it will depend upon each individual's 'openness' and the 'willingness' to know every 'truth' no matter what.

For, this long and ongoing process requires absolute courage.

As well, the multi-front informational war that continues to expose the dark-side establishment now leaps to a whole new level. These Aquarian Age revelations about the dark-siders, and their cruel war against humankind, is beneath the Divine's blazing spotlight.

You need only look to see.
