LIGHTNING AND SPIRITUAL ILLUMINATION
by Bruce Johnson
Chapter 9 in the biblical Book of Acts recounts Saul’s journey to Damascus and his experience of having a light from heaven suddenly flash around him. Following this vision of inner light, Saul was transformed into Paul, scales fell from his eyes, and he was converted from a hostile skeptic into a devoted follower of Jesus. The books of Matthew and Luke both refer to lightning from the East as a sign indicating the arrival of the Kingdom of God. Like ancient mythology, these allegories show lightning as a symbol of Divine Power that brings a spiritual enlightenment to the recipient. The Tower card of the tarot includes the same “bolt out of the blue” symbolism, its lightning bolt signifying the jolt of Uranian energy from the Soul.
Lighting represents the sudden and unexpected descent of Divine Light that activates a spiritual rebirth in the one who experiences it. Many ancient gods and divine beings were specifically linked to lightning. The Hindu gods Vishnu and Indra revealed themselves physically in the form of a lightning bolt. The Book of Enoch describes the prophet Enoch receiving the secrets of lightning and thunder in a vision. The Greek Titan Prometheus revealed the art of bringing down lightning from the sky to ancient humanity. The Norse God Thor, like Tupan of South America, were gods of lightning and thunder, and both appeared as bolts of lightning which could be creative or destructive toward mortals.
Knowledge of physical lightning as atmospheric electricity was taught in the ancient mystery schools of India, Egypt, and Persia. Lightning rods were commonly used to protect temples and buildings from destructive lightning strikes. The white bryony vine was used by Etruscan priests to avert lightning strikes, combining their knowledge of botany with the laws of electricity.
The belief in amulets that provided safety from lightning strikes was widespread in ancient times. Hyacinth or zircon, nephrite jade, and certain red-colored stones containing astrological and other symbols were shaped into protection amulets. Magnetite was a lightning attractor in some legends, and believers never carried one during a storm.
Unlike spiritual lightning that brings illumination, physical lightning can be very destructive, and you will want more protection than a lightning amulet can provide. The National Lightning Safety Institute at 891 N. Hoover Ave. in Louisville, Colorado is a great source for lightning safety information.
Bruce Johnson has over 30 years of study in the fields of Ancient Wisdom and occultism. He has taught classes on a wide range of topics, from Atlantis to mediums to Zoroaster. He is also a spiritualist minister, with a background in spiritual astrology. He lives in Colorado with his wife and their cat.
NOVEMBER ASTROLOGICAL UPDATE
by Marcia McCaffery
Key phrase: I TRANSFORM
SCORPIO (October 24-November 23) The sign of Scorpio is often referred to as the mystery sign. It is the most complex of the twelve signs of the zodiac. As a fixed water sign, Scorpio relates to our emotional depths where we confront our deepest fears and obsessions. It rules the eighth house of sex and death which are, unquestionably, two of the most mystifying experiences of life. Scorpio is long associated with healing, alchemy, transformation, rebirth, greater consciousness and self-empowerment. Many gifted healers are born with the signature of a prominent Pluto, the ruler of Scorpio, in their natal charts. Plutonian energies are charged with magnetism, resourcefulness, and determination. The lower vibrations can be willful, secretive, destructive, manipulative, obsessive, and vengeful. This sign has great passions that undergo major regeneration in the life, where the soul and the personality must come into alignment. Its evolutionary journey is intense and powerful to evolve the self to a higher plane.
This month the energies will encourage us to surrender and go with the flow as we rely on our inner resources for guidance. The Scorpio New Moon is one of the two most transformational moons of the year. The keyword is “surrender.” We can begin by setting our intention to release negativity and useless debris from our lives. We are advised to rid ourselves of all things both physically and symbolically that no longer serve us. This enables us to free up space for new people and things to enter our lives.
Neptune ends its five month retrograde journey on November 9th, marking a shift in how we view the world. The most positive effect of this planetary change brings greater clarity. The Taurus Full Moon on November 10th, offers an opportunity to bring all matters that have to do with what we value to a successful conclusion. This is one of the most creative Full Moons of the year, combining the practical (Taurus) with the emotional (Scorpio). Mars leaves the drama of Leo behind and moves into practical Virgo where it will remain until the end of the year. We are reminded to hold a vision of the big picture close at hand to avoid excessive nitpicking and over concern for details. This is a time when we can get a lot done!
Mercury turns retrograde from November 24th to December 14th, followed by a Solar Eclipse at 2 degrees Sagittarius, on Thanksgiving Day. As with any new moon, the Sun (consciousness) and the Moon (instincts) come together on the same “wavelength.” However, the intensity of a Solar Eclipse puts increased emphasis on our instinctual reactions, the effects of which last for the next six months. We are asked to become more conscious of our spiritual values, the things we are most grateful for and our philosophy on life.
Wishing you all a peaceful and blessed Thanksgiving Holiday!

STEPPING INTO YOUR POTENCY, SUPERPOWERS, AND WIZARDRY!
by Eileen Moore Koenigsberg
Monday, November 28, 2011, 7 – 9 pm, $20.
Why is it that magic, superpowers, and wizardry appeal to us? Is it because we know we actually create everything in our lives, even if we keep looking outside of ourselves for the cause? Quantum physics tells us that the observer affects the outcome, the molecules respond to our direction. What if you really were a wizard, you just forgot? If you would acknowledge your intuition, telepathy, and other talents and abilities, do you think you would rely on them more? Would you like to be able to bend a fork or change bad wine into tasty, healthy wine easily? In this class we will explore our talents and abilities and clear blocks of decisions, judgments & conclusions we have made in the past that are limiting us.
We will use Access Consciousness tools and processes to clear these and take the steps into greater awareness, knowing, and potency. We will also learn the De-molecular manifestation and Molecular De-manifestation process, great for enhancing food, wine, your body, or contributing to the planet. Want to play with your superpowers? Come, check it out. $20

HOT NEW PRODUCTS FOR FALL
When new discoveries cast doubt on existing beliefs, it’s time to rethink the beliefs! A new world is emerging before our eyes, while the unsustainable world of the past struggles to continue. Both worlds reflect the beliefs of our past. Both exist – but only for now. Which world do you choose? Bestselling author and visionary scientist Gregg Braden suggests that the hottest issues that divide us – seemingly separate concerns such as war, terror, abortion, suicide, genocide, the death penalty, poverty, economic collapse, and nuclear war – are actually related. They all stem from the false assumptions of an outdated science, assumptions that have brought us to the brink of disaster and the loss of all that we cherish as a civilization. “Deep Truth” reveals compelling evidence that: evolution alone does not explain our existence; we’ve been on Earth much longer than acknowledged by conventional history; we’re ‘wired’ for peace, not war; and, we’re at a pivotal tipping point in our existence. These discoveries give us the reasons to think differently about ourselves. With that difference, the solutions become obvious, and the choices become clear! Gregg Braden brings together the inspiring messages from all his previous visionary work into one cohesive vision for the future of mankind.
New York Times bestselling author Gregg Braden has been a featured guest at international conferences and on media specials, exploring the role of spirituality in technology. From his groundbreaking book, Awakening to Zero Point, to his pioneering work The Isaiah Effect, Braden ventures beyond the traditional boundaries of science and spirituality, offering meaningful solutions to the challenges of our time. www.greggbraden.net
ORGONE HARMONIZERS AND BALANCERS from $15 to $75
Orgone energy is an idea which was initially proposed and promoted in the 1930s by psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich, who originated the term to describe a universal life force. Reich, originally part of Sigmund Freud’s Vienna circle, developed the therapeutic practice that would coalesce and create organization on all scales, from the smallest microscopic units – called bions in orgone theory – to macroscopic structures like organisms, clouds, or even galaxies.
Reich pursued his orgone energy research for more than a decade after immigrating to the US, publishing his own work through the Orgone Institute and producing orgone devices for distribution. The United States FDA brought an injunction barring the interstate distribution of orgone-related materials, on the charge that Reich and his associates were making false and misleading claims. Reich violated the injunction and was jailed. All of his orgone-related equipment and literature was destroyed by the FDA and the “legitimate” scientific community dismissed and discredited his work.
We now have several sizes and prices of Orgone products made locally by the talented, community-driven people at www.loveoftheearth.com.
Special programming brings these Orgonite pieces to a high frequency that aligns with the energies of their owners. They are also programmed to continue moving up in frequency as the person, home, office or environment is ready to do so. The Harmonizers and Balancers are an excellent addition to your home, in the office and even your yard. They bring the chaotic energies that are in the atmosphere into harmony and balance. Their range of influence has been measured up to one half mile, but in congested, highly populated areas, it is much less.
