THE THIN VEIL BETWEEN THE WORLDS - HALLOWEEN or HALLOMAS

Thin veil? That is the term I've heard used so many times in my life at this season of ancestor worship - and contact - called Halloween or Hallomas by the Pagans. (I'm linking to a non-commercial site by a Pagan that has far more explaination.) As I understand it, this is the best time of the year for psychic contact with those who have left us behind in this earthly existance.

From the site linked:
"This festival marks the Celtic New Year and the most important festival of the Year. Its usual date is 31 October. It marks the transition from the Western Quarter of the Wheel to the Northern Quarter. The time of the Ritual is dusk, or 9pm.

To the Celts, everything had its beginning in darkness. Darkness and death held the promise of new Life, like the dark of night holds the promise of a new day coming. The Celtic day started at dusk, and their New Year at the dusk of the Year. At the festival on the last evening of October, they honoured their ancestors and their beloved dead. In Catholic countries people still decorate the graves with flowers on this day, like a promise of life at the dark time of the year."

WORLD OLDEST PERSON - 115 - GENETIC CODE CRACKED! SHE THOUGHT LIKE A 65 YEAR OLD!

"Hendrikje van Andel-Schipper died of gastric cancer, having survived breast cancer at the age of 100. Her mother also lived to be a centenarian. At the age of 82 she agreed to donate her body to medical science -- though this was not to happen for 33 years..."

Linking to the story that came out on Fox News.

CYNDI DALE on VIVAXIS (AN ENERGETIC SPHERE THAT LINKS US TO OUR PLACE OF BIRTH)

page 227

"VIVAXIS is a term coined by Judy Jacka (and her teacher, Frances Nexon) in Jacka's book The Vivaxis Connection. It is an energetic sphere that develops within us a s a fetus and then forever links us to our place of birth. Through this umbilical cord, energy continues to flow between our place of original and us throughout our life. When major shifts occurs in the land, caused by natural or human alterations, we might experience similar effects in our own bodies. The Vivaxis is therefore an ideal energy body to check for symptoms that include fatigue, chronic inflammation, sudden-onset autoimmune disorders, or severe environmental allergies."

MERRY HALLOWEEN

I've read that Jack O Lanterns began in the Celtic Countries where candles were put into TURNIPS! Pumpkins are of the New World (the America's).

Personally I greatly dislike the gore and horror now attributed to Halloween and this time of year. I think these things are in the spirit of evil, rather than a wholesome spirituality.

You can celebrate Halloween and the Day of the Dead and All Souls at this time of the year by scrapbooking family photos, working more on your genealogy, and honoring your ancestors who are alive as well as those who wait on the other side.

BLACK DEATH CRACKED BY TEAM OF GERMAN CANADIAN AND AMERICAN SCIENTISTS

Kate Kelland of Reuters news service wrote this one and I'm linking to the Chicago Tribune article about it.

"The work, which involved extracting and purifying DNA from the remains of Black death victims buried in London's "plague pits," is the first time scientists have been able to draft a reconstructed genome of any ancient pathogen... Building on previous research which showed that a specific variant of the Yersinia pestis (Y. pestis) bacterium was responsible for the plague that ravaged Europe between 1347 and 1351, a team of German, Canadian and American scientists went on to "capture" and sequence the entire genome of the disease... For this study Poinar's team analysed skeletal remains from Black Death victims buried in London's East Smithfield "plague pits," which are located under what is now the Royal Mint.By focusing on promising specimens from the dental pulp of five bodies, which had already been pre-screened for the presence of Y. pestis, they were able to extract, purify and enrich the disease's DNA and at the same time reduce the amount of background non-plague DNA which might interfere."

BARBADOS and SOUTH CAROLINA LINKED BY SLAVE TRADE AND IMMIGRATION

Harriet McLeod, a Rueters journalist, wrote this article, linked above, about the historic links between the island of Barbados and South Carolina.

There were 600,000 people in Barbados by 1670, most slaves, and then people began to leave that country for life in South Carolina. Part of our American history, the New England - Barbados - South Carolina triangle trading zone may explain some of the movement your ancestors made before they become southerners.

GAME CHANGER : EVOLUTION : AUSTRALOPITHECUS BONES SHOW HUMAN HAND ON PRIMATE APE

Linking to this article by Randolph E Schmid that came out in several papers (this one from the Houston Chronical) last week about AUSTRALOPITHECUS. This article has some great pictures showing the tiny human hand.

"Kristian J. Carlson, also at Witwatersrand, said the brain of A. sediba is small, like that of a chimpanzee, but with a configuration more human, particularly with an expansion behind and above the eyes."

SHIRLEY MACLAINE'S BEST EVER BOOK : I'M ALL OVER THAT

I've read a few of Shirley's books and I firmly believe THIS IS HER BEST BOOK YET!

I liked the way the theme of GETTING OVER IT (already!) was carried throughout the book by chapter titles and the overall concept of the book. Shirley, now in her mid seventies, is clearly reviewing her life and herself, and I enjoyed getting to know her in this way.

Two authors of reincarnation studies, Walter Jenkins and Walter Semkiv, have independently identified one of her past lives as Robert Morris, the patriot who financed the American Revolution. So now I'm looking for books by these authors.

Her latest is book is published by Atria Books, a Division of Simon and Shuster.

REINCARNATION : EDGAR CAYCE A.R.E.

Edgar Cayce was called "The Sleeping Profit." He was a devout Christian who helped people with medical diagnosis. Here is a little film from A.R.E. (Association of Research and Enlightenment) which I believe is headquartered in Virginia.

Our genetic and spiritual ancestors help us with our research quests and, while we follow a linear research path, amazing dreams and synronicities abound.

We explore multicultural ancestry worship and the use of genealogy for past-life verification, as well as practical ways and means to achieve your research goals.
