Memorial Day, May 30, 2005, Today we honor those who have served our country in battles past and present.
I live in New York City which is bustling with people here for different and ceremonies.
There's Fleet Week, an endless parade of ships all of which sail just outside my home, under the Verrazano Bridge on their way to events in NY harbor from May 25-June 1. Many ships will remain through the July 4th weekend.
The summer beach season kicked off this weekend with great weather in most areas.
There were lots of parades around town all weekend. The annual Memorial Day parade took place here in Bay Ridge, marching bands, and veterans from different wars. The parade ends in Cannonball Park where noted dignitaries come out to speak.
There is entertainment in the form of concerts which continue for much of the day after which the activities culminate in historic Fort Hamilton - just down the block. It had been announced that Fort Hamilton would be closed due to military cutbacks, but that decision has been reversed.
This is an historic area, with energies linked to the American Revolutionary War and it's principal players, who set up the Masonic Program on the north American continent. Just around the bend to my right, we find the Statue of Liberty, and just beyond that, Ground Zero. In times of war, there are special ceremonies, to honor those who have recently crossed over, a growing number these days as our troops remain in Iraq.
Americans have always fought bravely for that which they believe, never losing hope that one day peace will find itself in the American Dream that dates back to the American Revolution and freedom for all. But is it all just a dream?

West Point grads undeterred 4 years after 9/11 CNN News
Gen. Richard Myers, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called the class "one of the few since the early days of the Vietnam War who came to West Point in peace time, saw the nation transition to war and chose to stay, knowing you would raise your right hand and take an oath and swear to defend the constitution of a nation that was still at war."
The Class of 2005 is nicknamed the "Class of 9/11" and, coincidentally, the number of graduates was 911.
The class spent almost all of the past four years drilling and studying under what West Point Superintendent Lt. Gen. William Lennox called "the shadow of war."
About seven in 10 of the new second lieutenants who threw their caps in the air are expected to be in combat in Iraq or Afghanistan within a year.
After the ceremony, a number of the newly commissioned officers said the double blow of the September 11 attacks and a boot camp-like introduction to West Point did little to deter them from pursuing their careers."
Myers, the outgoing Joint Chiefs chairman, told cadets that the attacks and resulting global battles have braced them to serve an evolving Army engaged in a struggle in which failure is not an option.
"I'm sure those events shaped every day of your past four years and gave you a clear sense of purpose and a heightened sense of resolve," he said.
Lennox reminded the cadets of that "seemingly harmless September morning" four years ago. "Think about how much the world has changed since that day," he said. "And think about how much you have changed since that day."
This article caught my attention because a client's daughter, Adrienne, 17, has decided to go to West Point this fall vs. several Ivy League Colleges that had accepted her. I read Adrienne in April and found her to be extremely intuitive with an inner knowing that takes years for others to develop. Having attended private school, she has already traveled the world, and speaks of herself as a free spirit with a mission that takes her to West Point, at least for the next 2 years. She understands that there is karma involved and she will see it through. We also discussed a connection to the Masonic Program and Sacred Geometry! Marriage and children are something in the remote future, if at all. She is an 'A 'student, with no issues, no vices, beautiful, talented, creative, presently looking at a career in aeronautical engineering. Months ago I told her mother, during a reading, that I see her daughter in West Point which seemed so remote at the time.
Relax your body, especially your head ... neck ... shoulders ... jaw ... and arms.
Still your mind.
Close your eyes.
Take 3 long slow deep breaths, inhaling through your nose, holding the breath as is comfortable, exhaling through your mouth.
Visualize a military uniform. Allow the image to slowly filter in and become clear.
You may, or may not, have see n this uniform before.
See yourself wearing the uniform. Feel the jacket, the trousers, the hat, any jewelry.
Walk past a mirror and gaze upon your reflection. Notice facial features, stature, other.
What is the name of this soldier?
What country does he serve?
What year is it?
What war, or battle, is he part of?
Is this a parallel experience for you or have you randomly walked into this soldier's frequency signature?
Spend time with him as he shows you his battleground and his part in history.
Listen to the sounds of battle.
Pay attention to fragrances.
Experience the emotions of the soldier if they connect for you.
View his death. Perhaps it will allow you to release something in your personal collective memory that is blocking you.
Now reflect ....
Is anyone from your current timeline part of that experience? To what end?
Are you a warrior in your soul? Is the reason emotional, chemical, environmental? by choice .... or by design?
Are you a nerd who would like to be a warrior?
Past or Parallel Lives are your soul's experiences in another part of the collective consciousness, grid program, matrix. They are projected imagery through which you can vicariously experience anyone ... anywhere, just as they can experience you here.
For an nanosecond you were a soldier.
As you sit there, you play another role. It is one of many experiences you are having as they are projected through the lens of time.
The final answer will come through a film.
Big Ben Chimes Stopped, Creating a Mystery
May 27, 2005, BBC News
The minute hand on the clock face of St Stephen's Tower at the Palace of Westminster, central London, stopped moving at 2207 BST.
It began moving again slowly but stalled a second time at 2220 BST and remained still for 90 minutes.
The cause of the stoppage is unknown, but the hot weather could be to blame.
Temperatures in London on Friday reached 31.8C (90 degrees F) and this has been cited as one possible factor for the stoppage.
The clock has only stopped a handful of times since it was completed in 1858. [1+8+5+8=22=4=time]
Snow accumulation on the hands caused it to ring in the New Year 10 minutes late in 1962. [1+9+6+2=18=9]
But during the Second World War, despite dozens of attacks by Luftwaffe bombers, the clock kept within one and a half seconds of GMT.
Most recently it stopped on 30 April 1997, 24 hours before the general election, and then again three weeks later.
The clock's bell is named Big Ben after Sir Benjamin Hall who commissioned it.
2220, 222 = triple digit which is a power number, which raises the frequency of the number 2 to a higher frequency. 222= 6 = Flower of Life.
An hour-and-a half = 90 minutes, 9-closures, 90 degrees of separation, light bending at a 90 degree angle= all done with mirrors, magic and metaphors.
'Big Ben'! The Alchemy Wheel on the Index Page of Crystalinks and the cover of Sarah and Alexander was created by my friend, Ben Erwin.
This summer I will visit Germany. My mission here deals with time.
When time stops ... all will revert back to the source of creation.
Through the eye of consciousness.
