It all happened began in Virgo Transition August 25, 1995
On August 25, 2011 ... Crystalinks turns Sweet 16 ... and the journey has indeed been sweet, often mirroring humanity's journey in physical reality. When I think about how Crystalinks has enriched my life and those of its readers who have come and gone only to return as guided, it is worth all the time and effort put in. From the first blog I wrote the summer of 1995, introducing myself, Z, and Crystalinks ... to its current themes, so much has evolved, messages given and readers connecting. I've met people in all walks of life and had amazing adventures - with the feeling the best is yet to come.
Crystalinks has come a long way since 1995 in terms of quality, content and ease of presentation. It has developed into a compendium of thousands of integrated files for greater understanding, a portal readers can return to find answers within the parameters of evolving consciousness. The overall theme of Crystalinks is simple and has never wavered -- Reality is a Consciousness Hologram through which souls experience virtually. It is a biogenetic experiment in linear time (physical reality) to experience emotions. Reality has a beginning and an end experienced through the evolution of consciousness in the alchemy of time. A transformation is occurring on all levels, coinciding with the Age of Science and Technology which guides us along the way.

Close your eyes ... Say goodbye to this reality. Remember. Time: 3:33

I have sent you some email in the past with a question or two, but this time I want to thank you for the time you take to keep up Crystalinks always nice and with very interesting posts.
The first time I heard about Crystalinks was in 2006 and since that date I always visited it. This year I have been following all your daily blogs. The first thing I do in the morning just before start work, is to check my email and now I have added Ellie's World to my start-up routine. I have also dug into the archives and directory, finding lots of useful information there, too.
Since 2006, my life has changed radically. I have been experiencing many things related to spirituality. Some days ago I realized that I can alleviate the pain from injured people y using my hands. Other sills have opened up, so i use Crystalinks as a research tool to fond out more about them. In 2009 I started to see the 11:11 pattern, as many other people do. This of course took me back to your website, as I quickly became a daily visitor.
Well I just want to give you the thanks and let you know what a beautiful experience Crystalinks has been for me.
If I didn't live so far away from you I would love to meet and talk over a cup of tea. It would be amazing to share words and higher states of awareness.
Happy sweet sixteen from Costa Rica and keep doing your great job!
By the way Crystalinks is a great "insert" into the program (reality) ;)

I've enjoyed Crystalinks for nine years. Thank you! We love it!
Keep shakin', rattlin' and rollin' seems appropriate to say after Tuesday's east coast earthquake. =]
From Nancy in Yardley, Pennsylvia
What fun to be channel surfing yesterday and ran across your piece on the BIO Psychic channel-show... about the tragic death in 1995 and your amazing work on it. Congratulations on your long career, Crystalinks, and just being Ellie...helping so many people.
From Terri in Chicago
Thanks for sending me the lighthouse moon rays on your July 27th blog. My daughter left for Tokyo that day, she's back this week and boomeranging off to college. I guess you knew that I use a lighthouse on my business cards. It might even be the same lighthouse!
Interesting earthquake on the 37 degree latitude. Watch those numbers, It's interesting to watch what is moving and what is not. When I look at the earthquake animation map, California has been dark really dark for a long time (whatever time means). Lots of energy getting trapped with nowhere to go. I find it more interesting to see patterns in areas that are not on the Pacific Ring of Fire.
I cant wait for the coming excitement. This is just the precursor as you indicated.
I been reading you blog/magazine since 9/11/01.
From Cathy in Arizona
I've been reading Crystalinks for many years now. I stumbled onto it one evening while looking up something that linked me to your site. I instantly connected with it and have been a regular visitor ever since. I, like other readers have mentioned, discover upon going to your blog each day that you have blogged about the very topics that I have on my mind.
I had a funny experience the other day after reading about your experience connecting with a relative that happened to be NYC after you contacted her out of the blue. I woke up one morning recently and was thinking about my best friend when I was a little kid (I'm now 42 years old). We grew up together in Ohio and I haven't seen or even thought about her in a very long time. So I decided to friend her on Facebook and as it turned out she was in AZ (where I have recently moved) visiting her entire family who had moved out here from Ohio (where she still lives). So we were able to meet up and I reconnected with her entire family whom I haven't seen since I was 13 years old!
Happy sweet 16 to you Ellie!
From Anita in Florida
I found Crystalinks in 2000 while searching for Crystals. I was writing a book and Crystals had much to do with the story line. I came to know Ellie and others of like mind, little realizing how this experience would change my life and my way of thinking about everything. The best thing I did was helping Ellie edit her files in the days before Spell Check. It took me a long time because each subject connected to many other subjects. As I poured through the files, the pieces started falling together in ways I could never imagine.
I found spirit guides most interest. After completing my book I got serious about wanting proof about spirit guides in a way that was undeniable to a stubborn Virgo. I wanted proof and I got more than I could possible imagine. When, and only when, I asked for confirmation from my guides I would get photos showing they were with me. I have an album with over 200 photos taken over a two year period. By then I was convinced and quit asking, feeling it was just rude to ask any more, I was convinced.
I made a trip to New York to meet Ellie and others for a crystal workshop in June 2005. As soon as I entered her apartment I knew that she was the real thing. I wish Crystalinks, and the very talented Ellie, a Happy Birthday. Thanks for all you've done.
From Jessica in Sweden
I hope you enjoy keeping Crystalinks running as it really contributes a lot to so many people. For me it was a lifeline 8 years ago when I started to research "above and below". I really learned a lot from you and it saved me so much time. You are doing great work and all the articles are easily understandable especially to foreigners.
You are more than just a blogger, you tap into something each day which gives me a feeling of being psychically connected to you. I only have to think about a question, check Ellie's World, and the answer appears. You allow me to know I am not alone. I really want to thank you and wish you all the best.
Have a good day!!
From Janette in Essex England
Happy birthday from Frinton on sea, Essex, England. I love your site and have learned so much since I first came across it while searching for the Solar System. I don't come online much but can't resist checking Crystalinks out when I do!
Enjoy your celebrations!
From Lesa Levy in Staten Island, NY
As your client for many years, I remember when you started Crystalinks. Pennies from Heaven -- I have read your blog every day for the past 16 years and happy to be your friend on Facebook.
Thank you Ellie !!

It has been a while since I have touched base so I thought I would say hi. Interesting that Crystalinks turns 16 in a few days. It is hard to believe that the first time I stumbled across the site was in 2005 - when I was in my early twenties and needed much direction. I can't believe it has been six years. My journey began with Crystalinks and it has been a pleasure watching it grow over these last few years.
It is amusing to sit back and watch how things evolve. The old ways don't work anymore and politicians are clamoring to fix a system that is outdated. Sort of like a 1980's computer; It simply can't keep up. There is no fixing the system as it is programmed to end. It did what it was supposed to do and now it is about done. I try to explain this to others but they just don't get it. "Love and light" is all I hear; I just roll my eyes and chuckle. Soon all will be revealed. It truly is amazing how freeing it is once you "get it." I can't tell you how many dreams I have had about what it will be like to be "freed" from the limitations of the physical body. Why do we hold on to this existence when it is so limiting?
So, I move on with my journey, beginning my PhD this September. Don't really know why I am doing it, but it just feels like the right thing to do. My relationship is also doing well having grown through the years.
Hope all is well with your family. Mine is crazier than ever and there has been death and illness this last year - People are jumping ship. I think even if they don't get it, their soul must get it on some level. I suppose there are those of us that aren't meant to be around to close the program and those of us who will see it to the end. I am not sure what to expect but I feel certain that everything is as it should be.
I have spent much of the summer indoors as I can't stand the heat - ready for Fall!! I do hope there is air conditioning on the other side :)
From Candice in Singapore - Happy Birthday
I stumbled upon Crystalinks in the year 2004 as I looked up at the night sky one day, saw Orion and decided to google it. And that's how I got to know about this amazing site. Your blog got me hooked and I combed through all your links like a thirsty traveler in a desert and practically read it everyday since! It's been like a booster for me in my quest for more information and meaning in this world and my life. Through the years, I have practiced Reiki, Qi Gong and Yoga, and Crystalinks has further enlightened me in these areas.
Crystalinks has enlightened me on various issues particularly about grids. I resonate with the idea that the grids have fallen and a new way of life is dawning. Most of the time, when I needed an answer, or I am thinking about some issues, reading Crystalinks' blog of the day would enlighten me on the issue, as you would talk about the same issue that was on my mind.
Much has happened since the day I discovered Crystalinks - I changed my career, and my way of thinking. Thank you Ellie for writing this blog.
I would love to meet you should I have the chance though it would be quite a challenge as I am on the other side of the planet!
My birthday falls on 26 August, the day after your anniversary.
From Carol in West Texas
Crystalinks is a wealth of information both metaphysics and science and is always up to date with the most current happenings. I donŐt watch the mainstream news anymore as I get everything I need on Crystalinks.
It's been a joy watching your children have children and they have grown so much too.
I have e-mailed you several times with queries and you have always been so sweet to answer. You have kept me grounded, calm, and I feel so supported by Crystalinks. Thank you so very much for all your hard work and effort, you have made a wonderful difference in my life.
From Marcie In Hawaii - Happy Birthday
Thanks for the enlightenment Ellie!
From Samantha hayes In Nebraska
Crystalinks guided me through some really rough patches giving me information that I could only find on your site. I found that the things you would blog about were the same things I was experiencing at the time. I learned not to be afraid of what I was dreaming. You helped to understand the "real" part of myself, my spirit, my soul. You helped me to trust my own instincts and to listen to "me". I appreciate all you have given to me. Thank you so much.
The Greeks understood Zoroaster to be the prophet and founder of the religion of the Iranian people. Zoroaster allegedly lived six to seven millennia BCE - Before Common Era, and was variously a king of Bactria, a Babylonian, or teacher of Babylonians.
Most importantly was their image of Zoroaster as a Sorcerer-Astrologer, and the Inventor of both Magic and Astrology. Deriving from that image, and reinforcing it, was a mass of literature attributed to him which circulated the Mediterranean world from the 3rd century BCE to the end of antiquity and beyond. The Greeks considered the best wisdom to be exotic wisdom and what better and more convenient authority than the distant - temporally and geographically - Zoroaster.
One factor for the association with Astrology was Zoroaster's name, or rather, rather what the Greeks made of it. Within the scheme of Greek thinking (which was always on the lookout for hidden significances and "real" meanings of words) his name was identified at first with star-worshiping (astrothytes "star sacrificer") and, with the Zo-, even as The Living Star. Later, an even more elaborate mytho-etymology evolved: Zoroaster died by the living (zo-) flux (-ro-) of fire from the star (-astr-) which he himself had invoked, and even, that the stars killed him in revenge for having been restrained by him.
Similar ideas about Zoroaster also appear in early Christian literature, beginning with the Clementine Homilies 9.4-5, which identifies him with a parallel series of traditions about Nimrod having been the Founder of Astrology. In this account, Nimrod is killed by lightning and posthumously deified by the Persians as "Zoroaster, on account of the living (zosan) stream of the star (asteros) being poured upon him."
The second, and "more serious" factor for the association with Astrology was the notion that Zoroaster was a Babylonian. The alternate Greek name for Zoroaster was Zaratas/Zaradas/Zaratos, which derived from a Semitic form of his name.
The Pythagorean tradition considered the mathematician to have studied with Zoroaster in Babylonia.
The Suda's chapter on "astronomia" notes that the Babylonians learned their Astrology from Zoroaster.
Lucian of Samosata decided to journey to Babylon to ask one of the Magi, Zoroaster's disciples and successors, for their opinion.
