A Secret Power in Every Day

Magic is everywhere; in nature, in you, in time itself. Every day has a secret power. You have to hunt for this power though - that's why it's called a secret power. My whole life I suspected its existence, only to be told it didn't exist. Finally I decided to decide for myself. I would gather information and come to my own conclusion.

My search began with my certainty that everyone is special. We don't have to do anything to prove it. We are born that way. This idea is gaining popularity in the collective consciousness as portrayed by Lady Gaga's Born this Way Baby. But I wanted to know more, specifically, how am I special? Admittedly this is an egotistical pursuit. So maybe it's not solely, or soul-ly about me. If I was born this way maybe it's connected to the day I was born. Maybe I don't own it. Maybe I'm just responsible for it.

Next question: what's special about the day I was born? And hundreds of people are born everyday of the year so everyday must have a power in it. Has something special happened each and every day of the year?

Thus began ten years of research. Delving into libraries, prowling through bookstores and traveling the internet I looked for unsolved mysteries and unexplained phenomena for every day of the year. And found them! After that the Secret Power was obvious.

Britain UFO Sightings Spike

If you're interested in the paranormal and UFO's, then you have probably already heard that England's Ministry of Defense released thousands of pages of documents last week, effectively declassifying all of their UFO research and investigations over the past decades. It seems that this has peaked interest in paranormal phenomena again, as sightings of UFO's have spiked recently. Or, perhaps, the aliens are dropping by to see what all the fuss is about.

Sightings of strange objects in the sky in the Scottish Highlands was capped off by a report from Nairn, where a nighttime sojourner saw a glowing, orange fireball on February 14, travelling soundlessly in a straight line before disappearing into the clouds. Okay, sounds intriguing, but there is just not much information there. It could be anything, even just a fancy story.

More solid, and more well reported by far, is the photo taken by intrepid UFO watcher Tom Cooke of St. Helens outside his home on Tuesday, February 16th. When the nine-year-old saw two flaming orange lights gliding side by side in the night air he whipped out his cell phone camera and snapped a pretty clear image of the lights. He was convinced they were UFO's. If interest in the story is any indicator, a whole lot of others are convinced, too.

So. Does releasing tons of documented sightings engender more sightings? Does it spark the imagination, leading to flights of fancy whenever a ball of marsh gas rises above the murk? Or does it sharpen people's eyes, cause them to look upwards more often, and perhaps catch a glimpse of an answer to the ancient question - are we alone? That, dear reader, we leave to you to decide. We know what we believe.

I think we'll go stargazing tonight.

UFO Over Moscow

It's in the news again. that triangular shaped unidentified flying object that speeds in and out of earth's atmosphere every so often, this time appearing over Red Square in Moscow. Won't be long before someone gives us a 'logical' explanation.

Before the British Ministry of Defense pulled its UFO Hotline service, they use to look into this type of phenomenon. And they were kept very busy back in 1989, 1990.

At that time they investigated a huge wave of space craft sightings making impossible manuveurs over Belgium. These airships were observed to be moving at extreme speeds; extremely slowly at one end of the spectrum (20 miles per hour) and extremely fast (thousands of miles per hour) at the other end. In one night, at the end of March, 1990, the Belgian Air Force received 2,700 reports of UFO sightings from civilians and military. Compare this to the usual 250 reports per year. You can read more about this under March 30th in the Almanac.

Whitley Strieber - writer of the 1987 classic Communion, alien novels such as The Grays, and novels-become-movies like The Day After Tomorrow, has read Almanac of The Infamous, The Incredible, and The Ignored - and couldn't put it down! Now he is hosting Juanita on his popular radio show Dreamland this Saturday.

Comfort Zone


I am definitely feeling stretched! The book - it works!

Sort of a silly thing for the author to say but I've been taking myself at my word and the old 'comfort zone' is nowhere to be seen. One of the things the Almanac talks about, in the metaphysical portion, is that being constantly comfortable is going nowhere. We have to push ourselves - at this time I think this is the only thing that works.

Life as an experiment as well as an experience - and I am experimenting and experiencings as never before. Radio interviews are my equivalent of 'going boldly' where I have never gone before. Pretty wild stuff. I feel like a wallflower whose wall has been removed.

Would love to hear of others experiences in leaving their comfort zones.
