Things happens for a reason. Our whole lives are a series of connected events, one foreshadowing another. It is all one giant puzzle that brings together all the necessary elements that are needed for our soul’s evolution and growth. These are really all given in love, the one cohesive force that binds all of us together as one. |
The Christian religion has adopted many rituals and days of celebration from the ancient traditions of their own beliefs of how the Great Spirit works in our lives. Many “pagan” or Earth based practices were intentionally brought into the foundation of modern Christianity so that they would be more readily accepted.
The celebration of the Winter Solstice is one example. Winter Solstice is the shortest day of the year. The “light” disappears much quicker that day than any other day of the year. It is a nautical fact that our physical sun stays on the horizon of earth for three days,it does not move from that position. On Christmas morn the physical sun starts to rise again on its path to the heavens.
Jesus the embodiment of the Christ, the light of God, is born on Christmas morn. When the physical sun is “resting” at the horizon the spiritual light is filling every atom of space and penetrates to the very center of our Mother Earth and to the center of us. The Light of the Great Spirit is the LOVE that is given to us as our life force.
I have been a fan of Edgar Cayce for many years. He was known as the “sleeping prophet" and helped thousands of people while he was in a “trance” state. He was able to correctly diagnose medical conditions and also provide information that would be helpful to the person he was reading to remedy the situation.
He was a Baptist minister and didn’t believe in reincarnation but started referring to his clients past lives as a reason for their current illness. He then gave people readings on their past lives.
One day many years ago I was sitting on my living room floor next to a low bookcase. All of a sudden a red paperback book literally jumped out of the shelf and fell on the ground. It was a book of the prophecies of Edgar Cayce. I picked up the book and knew I had to open it to the first page I cameupon. I read the following;
“The day most attributed to the sinking of Atlantis was October 31st or November 1st.”
The exact day this happened and the day I was reading thiswas November 1st !
It all made perfect sense. November 1st is known as All Saints Day in the Catholic Church. November 2nd is known as All Souls day, or the day of the dead, the day to honor our relatives. The celebrations of Halloween was probably started to honor the dead from the sinking of Atlantis. This was later adapted into the Christian religions.
Atlantis had become a highly technologically advanced civilization that has eventually become corrupt and used this to create wars on other societies. There were supposed to be 3 to 4 sinking episodes of the lost continent. The last one has been linked to the great flood.
There is also the possibility that the giants of old, the “Fallen Angels," the Nephilim, were deliberately wiped off the earth in the flood because of their nefarious ways. The legend of the Great flood has been recorded in many religions of our planet. We are all linked together as One in Spirit.
Halloween comes to us in the form of “dressing up” in different costumes, i.e. as different people. This ritual may be a throwback to the time of the sinking of Atlantis when literally thousand of souls died at once. We dress up to avoid the “grim reaper” who brings us to our physical death. We are in costume so that “He” will not recognize us and take us away.
Atlantis is now being linked to Antarctica and the lost city found beneath the ice. Edgar Cayce pointed to Bimini as the top most mountain of Atlantis that never sank. My trip there proved to me that it was indeed Atlantis. The very first night we felt 10,000 souls trying to get into the rooms we were staying in. Very strange energy! (see my article,”Bimini-Atlantis Found?”)
The tapestry of life has been interwoven into stories, legends, religions, and common beliefs of all the people and life on Mother Earth. We really are all the same with different faces and bodies. We are all part of “The Great One Spirit.”
Let us begin to accept and honor our differences and enjoy one another for the gifts and wisdom we each have to share.
