The Aliens Examined Her Legs And Feet

Sketch of aliens or greys

A story today by a reader who calls herself Revelation Petra. It's about her personal experience of the examination of her feet and legs by some sort of aliens. There's no UFO involved, the aliens appear to simply have arrived and then disappeared.

As with most stories received I have to take this at face value. There's nothing I can research to verify what is said to have happened. So, as I often say, see what you think.

"I had just arrived home from a friend's place and was lying on my bed  looking out of the window at the stars. I felt a sharp pain like a pin being stuck in my toe.

It felt like I was frozen and I wanted to yell out but didn't want to disturb my mother who was asleep in the next room. I was wide awake and had only just put my head on the pillow seconds earlier, thinking about tomorrow and things I had to do. I felt someone was in my room and there were sounds from the foot of my bed.

I couldn't see anything, and couldn't move at all. It was then that I felt hands around my feet where the pin prick had been. I could only lift my head slightly and I saw three small figures looking at me from the foot of the bed.

There were two small entities standing at the end of my bed and one was holding my ankle and examining it. While this was happening I hoped my mother, in the next room, wouldn't wake up and disturb these entities as they might panic and hurt her. After what seemed like just a few seconds I noticed three more figures standing at the foot of the bed and they stuck something in my leg.

I started to feel able to move again, only slightly and lifted my head off the pillow and saw right into their faces. They looked back but never stopped doing whatever they were doing. They knew I was looking straight at them and that I was wide awake.

They were not trying to intentionally hurt me and I felt no fear and I can remember everything that they did. I was aware of being awake and that this was not a dream. I tried to communicate with them but I couldn't talk as no sounds came from my mouth.

They looked quite solid, long arms but not abnormal, smallish heads, not extremely large, more like small children feeling around and playing. They were around three or four feet tall, dark greyish in appearance with lizard like scales, Their skin seemed the same colour throughout the body as far as I could see. They had a almost sad look about them and there was definitely some kind of rank as one or two ordered the others around - not with words or telepathy but they just seemed to obey without answering.

They still had hold of my ankle and reminded me of well trained doctors with nurses helping them, this was a real event. I noticed that they had three large type fingers that seemed to be too large to do anything intricate, yet they were doing things to me with the skill of a surgeon.

I felt no pain except for the initial discomfort of a pinprick in my toe.

They wanted to look at my legs and feet and didn't come near my face or touch any part of me except my toes and ankles, although they had direct contact with my eyes.

They seemed to be quite aware of my feelings and as they continued they would look my way to see if I was in any discomfort.

Before they left I noticed they looked back at me and then vanished.

It was then that I felt a sensation in my foot and toe and I immediately jumped up and went to the bathroom and looked in the mirror.

When I checked the time it was less than three minutes since I had arrived home. This was impossible as I had made something to eat when I first arrived home, went to the bathroom, got undressed and went to bed.

I then heard my mother talking and realised it was all over."

It's interesting that the 'aliens' appear to have a reptilian look which ties in with my post UFOs And Visits From Reptilian Dinosaurs.

Some will say that not being able to temporarily move or speak is part of sleep paralysis. I've experienced this myself a few times, but I can't remember seeing anything or anyone in combination with this.

I asked Petra if there was any after effects of what had happened. She answered that there wasn't other than 'her toe ached a little' the next day, though she feels she is 'more sensitive recently to other people's feelings'.

It's up to us as to what we believe.

23 Funny Children's Letters To God

If we can't comprehend God then how can a small child?

Source: via Mike on Pinterest

God puzzles us all and, no matter what some may say and preach, it's impossible to fully comprehend the idea of a God.

I expect most of our prayers and requests are as naive as the children's letters to God above. I love Jane's question in her letter, "Instead of letting people die and having to make new ones why don't you just keep the ones you've got now."

As it says in Matthew 18:3 "Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven." Makes you think, doesn't it?

The Guardian Angels Waiting To be Summoned

Guardian angel

Nowadays we often talk about guardian angels and, for some reason, I presumed that this idea originated from within Christianity. But it seems other religions have equivalents.

In Islam there is a term al-mu'aqqibat which means those who follow one upon another. Some scholars claim that these are similar to guardian angels

"When I was a child I thought I saw an angel. It had wings and kind of looked like my sister. I opened the door so some light could come into the room, and it sort of faded away. My mother said it was probably my guardian angel."
~ Denzel Washington
It is said in Islamic teachings (as I understand it) that God assigns two angels to each of us throughout our lives. One sits on our right shoulder and the other on our left. These are called kiraman katibin and record our actions, thoughts and feelings from puberty.

The angel who sits on the right shoulder records the good that we do while the angel on the left records our bad deeds. So we can't hide much from God! On the Day of Judgement each person will be confronted with this record - and the two angels will be present to tell God of what the person did.

Thinking about this though these angels differ from the popular, more western versions as they do not seem to step in and help the person they are with - they purely record events. But, in saying this the Qur'an states (Chapter 13 Verse 11) "For each person there are angels in succession, before and behind him: They guard him by command of Allah."

An Irish Blessing:
These things I warmly wish for you: someone to love, some work to do, a bit o' sun, a bit o' cheer, and a guardian angel always near.
I have read that Muslims sometimes say, "Peace be upon you," while looking at their left and right shoulders - where the angels reside - as they offer their daily prayers.

If we move on to Hinduism there is a belief that all living things - people, animals, plants - have a deva assigned to them to guard and help 'us' understand the universe and how we can become one with it.

Going back to Christianity I have a cutting (sorry, don't know source) which states:

There must be a convey of guardian angels, working twenty-four hours a day, looking after me ... Like the night I first got to Nashville and laid down in the middle of Broadway, waiting to get run over. It didn't happen ... I could swear they were keeping me alive just to see what I'd get up to next, I'm glad they feel that way.
~ Willie Nelson
"In Catholic Christianity, believers say that God assigns one guardian angel to each person as a spiritual friend for the person’s entire life on Earth. The Catechism of the Catholic Church declares in section 336 about guardian angels: 'From infancy to death, human life is surrounded by their watchful care and intercession. Beside each believer stands an angel as protector and shepherd leading him to life.'"

I like the idea of having a Guardian Angel, but then I have my doubts because some of them don't appear to being doing a very good job on behalf of the people they are supposedly looking after. I think the answer to this is that we have to actually ask for help or guidance on matters of life. Maybe if we don't ask, we don't get.

"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened."

Sounds fair enough!

A White Dove As A Message From Her Dead Mother

White dove as a message from the dead

Over the couple of weeks one of the most viewed posts on 67 Not Out has been The White Dove As A Messenger Of The Dead. The following is a response to this from Mary Jackson.

This past Saturday, 1/19/2013, my mother past away.

Yesterday My dad and I went to the front yard of their house to walk her dog and were reminiscing memories of my mom.

All of a sudden, out of nowhere, a white dove comes towards us and flaps its wings in a still motion.

My dad and I then look at one another and said, "Wow where did the white dove come from?" We live in Las Vegas so you don't see doves like this. As we looked back the dove vanished.

I told my sisters about the dove and one of them said she saw the dove the day before. I believe this was a sign from our mom letting us know she is okay and that she is at peace and in Heaven.

It was just truly remarkable.

Her Boyfriend's Ghost Interferes With Her Love Life

Sharon Grant, now 44 from Blackburn England, met and fell in love with Sean Eddleston when they were in their mid 20s.

Sharon told the Sun newspaper that Sean always said to her, "Sharon, we’ll be together for life, no one will ever come between us'." She took comfort from this and promised him she would never date anyone else if he ever died.

Of course, no one in good health thinks they will ever be parted but sadly Sean died of bronchial pneumonia when he was only 37. Sharon's world came tumbling down.

After a while Sharon felt that Sean's ghost or spirit was still with her. She explains:

"Strange things were happening. When Sean was alive, he moved the pictures in our home and made them crooked - it was a joke because he knew that it drove me mad.

A few months after he died I suddenly noticed that all the pictures would sometimes be wonky.

I knew it was Sean telling me he was still there and, rather than being freaked out, I drew comfort from the fact he was still around. Straightening the photos, I would shout, 'Sean, will you cut it out!'

Occasionally I heard footsteps on the stairs. I knew that it was Sean and I just left him to it. There was no need to be scared."

She enjoyed having him around until, that is, when she started dating again. Sharon tells of her first new relationship:

"I made a meal and we opened a bottle of wine. It was quite romantic.

It was a sad moment, as bringing a man home felt as though I was severing some link with Sean and moving on.

But after eating we settled on the sofa and, as I went to kiss him, there was a crash in the kitchen and I heard footsteps run upstairs.

I went into the kitchen and the plates we had eaten off were on the floor smashed.

I could still hear footsteps upstairs and went up. I knew it was Sean. I went into my bedroom and snapped, 'Don’t spoil this for me, Sean!'

The next time my boyfriend came round I was in the kitchen when he ran in and said, 'Something has ruffled my hair and pulled it!'

After that he refused to come round at night.

Another day he was visiting and I heard him knock on the door. I tried to get up from my bed but couldn’t move.

It felt like something was pinning me down and I had to say, 'Get off me, Sean! Now!'

After a struggle I was finally able to get up and answer the door.

We dated for nearly a year, but for the last six months he refused to come to my house at all."

The relationship ended after Sharon tried to explain about Sean's ghost - but there's probably only so much interference a suitor can take.

Next came a brief relationship with warehouse worker Dave Becket.

Sharon said: "We’d been on a couple of dates when he came to my house.

I was in the kitchen and the telly in the front room was off. But Dave suddenly went ashen and said he’d seen a reflection of himself in the blank TV screen - with someone sitting next to him.

I tried to remain blasé and said it was Sean and he was harmless. But Dave downed his drink and told me he had to go.

Yet again my dead boyfriend had prevented me from seeing someone else."

But Sharon tried again with gentleman number 3:

"I dated a man late last year and we went to my place for a nightcap.

We’d been there a couple of hours having a chat in the front room when I went into the kitchen to get us another drink.

Suddenly I heard him run out of the front door and down the road. I shouted after him but he looked terrified and kept running.

I don’t know what Sean did to this poor bloke, but he scared the living daylights out of him.

I’ve still got his jacket - he hasn’t been back for it and because I’d only just met him I didn’t have a phone number for him.

So Sharon is still on her own, but with the ghost of Sean, of course:

"Some nights I’ll sit down on my own in the front room and chat to him. I know he’s there, I can feel his presence. I was never interested in ghosts and ghouls before Sean died and had no opinion on whether they existed. Now I know they do.

I tell Sean I need that physical relationship with another man but it doesn’t mean I don’t still love him. I can be there for hours just chatting. I only hope Sean is listening.

But he needs to let me get on with my life."

The lesson is probably that we should be careful about what we promise - as it's not just for this life!

UFOs And Visits From Reptilian Dinosaurs

Let's think a little today outside of the norm. Something not to be taken too seriously but, there again, perhaps it should be!

Let's start with dinosaurs. Though we can't be absolutely sure, scientists tell us they existed between 230 and 65 million years ago, see evolution website. In other words they were around for about 165 million years before they became extinct - probably following an asteroid collision, though there are other theories.

So that's the dinosaurs, now lets look at us Humans.

Homo Sapiens (modern man) are said to be about 40-50,000 years old, though human origins date back 3, 4 or 5 million years.

All well and good. Dinosaurs lived for 165 million years and us humans for, say, 5 million years. Isn't there something odd about this?

In 5 million years of evolution humans are what they are today, with our modern technology, trips to the Moon and Mars and so on. But what happened in the 165 million years of the dinosaurs evolution? Not much it seems.

Or did it?

This is where we start thinking differently. Supposing the dinosaurs did actually develop more than we believe. What if some of them did advance and started to use forms of tools and maybe developed technology, towns and ... well, whatever. Remember they had 165 million years to do this - 33 times longer than humans.

Okay, it does sound like fantasy land but what if they had developed space travel as well? With their technology they would be aware of that disastrous asteroid approaching so some would have left earth. Could, therefore, some of the occupants of UFOs, seen today, have originated on earth?

This might all sound ridiculous but than I came across Dinosauroid, a sculpture by Dale Russell and Ron Seguin of the Canadian Museum of Nature, Ottawa.


Alien UFO
Russell and Sequin developed a computer programme to see how a dinosaur may have looked today, if they hadn't have become extinct, photo above.

What's interesting is how the head of this 'up-to-date' dinosaur - at top of post - looks very similar to how UFO aliens supposedly appear in various sightings, example right.

David Icke talks of a reptilian bloodline - he suggests George Bush and Queen Elizabeth II are of this line. But maybe that's stretching the imagination too much - or is it?

I wrote about an alien skull, supposedly found in Peru, which has a similar facial appearance, as per the photo below.

alien skull found in peru

Getting back to where I started the question is, "Why can't we find any proof of an intelligent dinosaur dynasty on Earth, if there was such a thing?"

The answer is simply because it was too long ago. Would you expect to find anything of our culture now in 65 million years?

Of course everything could just be one big coincidence - ah, but there again, there's no such thing.

Keep smiling!

P.S. Funny old world, just come across this 4 minute video from the BBC.

The Ghost Of Her Grandmother Visits To Give Her Advice

Ghostly grandmother in a rocking chair

My wife and I were out walking when we bumped into Trish (not Trish of synchrosecrets - she lives in the USA) who was walking her dogs. We don't know her well, she's someone we often see when we are out and about, and we tend to chat for a while.

Trish and her partner are in their late 60s and her sister suggested to her strongly that she should move to a smaller house. Perhaps a two bedroom bungalow.

She told us she was reluctant to do this for a couple of reasons. Firstly it's been her family home for several generations - her mother lived there and before that her grandmother. The house had been handed down. Also it is convenient for shops and other facilities.

Trish decided, however, to still go to an estate agent and see what smaller properties were available and at what price. After thinking about it, she thought moving did make some sense as it would leave her with a cash surplus.

She looked at a couple of properties and decided to get the estate agent to give her home a valuation the next day, out of interest.

That night she dropped off to sleep as usual but had the most vivid dream she can remember ever having. The dream featured her grandmother who was sitting in a rocking chair in the living room. She didn't look too pleased.

The 'dream' was so real Trish woke up filled with emotion. Somehow though she eventually managed to go back to sleep.

Next day in the morning, after breakfast, she went into the living room and there was water drip, dripping from the ceiling onto the rocking chair where, in her dream, her grandmother had been sitting.

There was a small leak, which had to be fixed by a plumber.

The crunch of the story is that Trish is convinced that the dream and the leak are connected. She sees them as being signs that her dead grandmother was telling her not to sell the house.

Trish phoned the estate agent to cancel the valuation. She was going to stay living where she was.

So, was it just a dream, or her grandmother telling her not to sell, or maybe a precognitive dream about a pending water leak? Whatever we may think Trish made her decision and acted on this.

A Time And A Place For Death

St George's Wharf London helicopter crash
The crane that was hit by a helicopter on St.George's Wharf, London
There was a nasty accident in London last week. A helicopter crashed into a crane that was on top of a 700ft skyscraper. The helicopter pilot was killed and there was also another fatality. As dreadful as that sounds it could have been so much worse.

For example, two workman should have been working on the crane at the time of the helicopter crash and both would certainly have been killed if they had been there. Maybe it was a 'divine intervention'.

Incredibly the men, Richard Moule and Nicki Biagioni, were late for work. They had both overslept! In the case of Mr Moule this was the first time he had been late for work. He explained; "It was the first time I've been late since starting this job. I just woke up late. Call it divine intervention if you like."

He was supposed to be at his job at 7am.

"I went on my motorcycle and got there at 7.45am. I was in the basement ready to go up when it happened."

Mr. Moule's sister, Charlotte, wrote on Twitter, "Maybe there is a God up there! That was my brother's crane and he was late for work today."

As for Mr Biagioni his wife said, "He overslept that morning, something he never does and was late for work. He was therefore not on the crane when it was hit. I thank his guardian angel."

It's always mystifying when such stories emerge following accidents and the like.

Though I believe in 'free will' it does seem that there is still a pattern behind this. We have things to do or experience prior to leaving earth. There does seem to be a time and a place for everything - including death.

A Big Clump Of Feathers From The Spirit World

White feather a message from the dead

A touching, but nevertheless funny, story today from Ma61 following her reading about white feathers on this blog.

"I just stumbled upon your postings here, and this is ... a coincidence, or a synchronicity!

My dad passed away a few years back and we all miss him terribly. My two brothers and one sister keep a close eye on our mom now that dad is gone.

I just turned 50 and for my birthday my sister and mom decided we should go to New York as a "girls vacation" and I've never been there. My mom paid for the trip saying it was a birthday gift from her and my dad.

The first night there we went to see a show at the famous Radio City Music Hall. One of the scenes in the show surprisingly involved a character "flying" overhead and dropping of all things white feathers down on the audience. There was a problem however with the actor distributing the feather out of the bag, and they ended up coming out in a BIG CLUMP of white feathers all at one time ONLY on top of my mom, sister and myself!

It was quite a scene (and a mess!). We each took a feather as a momento of that time together. My mom does stained glass and as a humorous gift presented me a singe white feather encased in a bevelled glass display.

Now that I read this post (The Meaning Of White Feathers As Messages From The Dead), I think to myself how odd was that to have happened to us as though my dad was there with us giving us a huge clump/dump of white feathers!

I'll be forwarding this post on to my sister. She'll get a big kick out of it!"

Imagine The Power Of The Heavens


I read some strange stuff at times. Recently I've come across something that there isn't much about on the Internet. It's a small booklet called Healing Through the Spirit by Ir-a-qu the Persian Mystic. Nope, never heard of him before either! The last print was back in 1975.

Anyway, this is an extract of some of what 'the Master' has said:

"Man talks of peace. He glimpses the ideal: and great Souls have attempted to put many plans of well being into operation, and it is good that it has been done so.

Yet when men gather together for the purpose of solving world problems, what happens? The National Spirit takes possession, and immediately the outlook is limited. In some (statesmen), the ego expands and desire for power manifests itself - and that which set out to be a fulfilment of plans by the Great Spirit of Universality is destroyed, and conflict is born from these limitations.

When every man is aware of the Love of the Father within him, he does not act as a personality only. He lives and acts as a Power from the Heavens. He sees with the eyes of Love; he hears with understanding, and he speaks the words of Power and Life - creative words - and so brings into being a condition which is the true replica of the Heavenly state."

This got me thinking of, say, politics. In the UK no matter what the current government does or says the opposition will immediately take an opposing view. This seems to happen in most countries where so called democracy exists.

The main objective now, for most political parties, is simply to make sure they get elected next time, rather than do what is right for the country or the world at large. Yes, there will be conflicting views but these have to surely be debated for the general good of all - and not for the power or ego, which the Persian Mystic writes about.

Somehow we have to imagine that there are no countries or differing political parties, neighbourhoods, families and so on. We have to think and do what is genuinely right for everyone - or maybe that is a too simplistic answer.

It's A Small World Coincidence

It's a small world coincidence

Here's a coincidence story I heard on a Tameside Radio podcast.

Anne Turner works on the desk at the Ashton Archives Office, England where people often visit when researching their family trees.

One lunch time Anne should have been off duty but covered for someone else. Two people walked in - a man and his daughter - to make enquiries about their family history. They were from Australia and the daughter had a strong Aussie accent.

A coincidence meeting
She asked them various questions to help with their search and had this feeling that the man looked similar an aunt of hers. When she heard his name, David Ward, she realised that he was a long lost cousin. David had emigrated to Australia over 22 years ago.

Anne explained: "I thought his face had seemed familiar but it wasn't until we started the search and he started running through family names that I realised the link. He continued to reel off names and I didn't like to interrupt at first but I was bursting to tell him who I was. When I eventually told him my name he immediately recognised me. Neither of us could believe the coincidence!"

Anne and David must have been destined to meet as (1) Anne shouldn't have been on the desk at that particular time and (2) David only had an hour to spare before he was due to catch a train to London and would be returning to Australia.

Though the re-united cousins only had a short time together they exchanged contact details and will no doubt now keep in touch.

That's the thing about coincidences and synchronicity it illustrates how we never know what's round that proverbial corner. Our lives can change in an instance.

Secrets And Wisdom From A Tibetan Monastery


The 1939 manuscript I saw on which my post The Lamas Way To Health, Rejuvenation And Virility was based also included the following which I thought may be of interest. It's regarding information obtained from a visit to a Tibetan monastery.

"The Lamas, millenniums ago, discovered that all good things come from within. They discovered that every worthwhile thing has its origin within the individual. This is something that the Occidental has never been able to understand, and comprehend. He thinks, as I did, that all worthwhile things must come from the outside world.

The Lamas, especially those at this particular Lamasery, are performing great work for the world. It is performed, however, on the astral plane.

This plane, from which they assist mankind in all quarters of the globe, is high enough above the vibrations of the world to be a powerful focal point where much can be accomplished with little loss of effort.

Some day the world will awaken in amazement to what the unseen forces - The Forces of Good - have been doing for the masses. We who take ourselves in hand and make new creatures of ourselves in every imaginable way, each is doing a marvellous work for mankind everywhere.

Already the efforts of these advanced individuals are being welded together into One Irresistible Power. It is only through individuals like the Lamas, and you and me, that the world can possibly be helped.

Most of mankind, and that includes those in most enlightened countries, like America, England and Canada, is still in the darkest of the Dark Ages. However, they are being prepared for better and more glorious things, and as fast as they can be initiated into the higher life, just that fast will the world be made a better place in which to live."

John Lennon And The Coincidence With Number 9

John Lennon #9 Dream cover

I've written previously how the numbers 76 and 67 have followed me through life. The number 9 is also important to me especially when added to 76 i.e 976.

I recently wanted a copy of my father's birth certificate for personal reasons - and the number on the certificate was 976 (of course!).

I was then reminded in a blog comment by Justin Sage that John Lennon had a lot of number 9's in his life. He is quoted as saying, "I lived in 9 Newcastle Road, I was born on the 9th October. it's just a number that follows me around."

So I thought I'd collate some of the 9's in John Lennon's life. Here we go:

John was born on October 9th.

His birth time is said to have been 6.30am - 6+3=9.

He lived in his early years at 9 Newcastle Road, Wavertree, Liverpool - Newcastle, Wavertree and Liverpool have 9 letters.

He travelled on the No.72 bus to art college and 7+2+9

At art school he was friends with Stuart Sutcliffe (9 letters in surname).

In 1957 Lennon met McCartney (9 letters in surname).

The Beatles played at the Cavern Club for the first time on February 9th 1961.

Beatles manager Brian Epstein first saw the Beatles on November 9th 1961.

The Beatles EMI record deal was confirmed on May 9th 1962.

The Beatles' furst single, Love Me Do, was on Parlophone R4949.

The Beatles debut appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show was on the February 9th 1964.

John met Yoko on November 9th 1966.

In April 1969 he changed his name to John Ono Lennon. An there just happens to be nine o's in the combined names of John Ono Lennon and Yoko Ono Lennon.

The Beatles had been together for 9 years when they broke up in 1970.

John and Yoko had an apartment on West 72nd Street and their original Dakota Buildings apartment was No.72. (So two lots of 7+2=9).

Yoko had a miscarriage on October 9, 1969 - John’s 29th birthday

Their son Sean was born on October 9th - John's own birthday.

Lennon's '#9 Dream' was a song on his 1974 album Walls And Bridges. The album was his ninth non-Beatles album, and was issued in the ninth month of the year.

The album Walls And Bridges featured a drawing by John Lennon when aged 11 showing a footballer with a number 9 shirt.

#9 Dream peaked at number 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was catalogued as Apple R6003 (6+3=9) in the United Kingdom.

As well as '#9 Dream' John also wrote 'Revolution No.9' and 'One After 909,

After he was shot, John was rushed to Roosevelt Hospital on 9th Avenue, Manhattan.

Roosevelt and Manhattan both have 9 letters.

John's death in New York was on December 8th but, as Cynthia his first wife writes in her own biography, this would have been December 9th in Liverpool his place of birth.

I'm sure there are many other 9s in John Lennon's life but that'll do as an example of how certain numbers often pop up in our lives.

The Lamas Way To Health, Rejuvenation And Virility


Most readers will no doubt be familiar with the main seven yogic chakras, or energy centres, within the body - as per the image above.

Today though I'd like to refer to seven vortexes within the body that are positioned differently to the chakras. Details of these have supposedly originated from Lamas in the Himalayas.

Their opinion is that these vortexes should revolve at great speed and when they are all revolving properly, at the same speed, this leads to perfect health, rejuvenation and virility.

First though, these are where the vortexes are said to reside within the body:

(1) The first is located deep within the forehead.

(2) This is in the 'posterior' part of the brain.

(3) Located in the throat at the base of the neck.

(4) Located in the right side of the body at waist level.

(5) Is in the reproductive anatomy and organs.

(6) and (7) are located in each knee.

So how do we get all these vortexes spinning properly?

The answer is by spinning ourselves. Here's a description of how to do this from a 1939 publication:

'Stand erect with arms outstretched, horizontal with the shoulders. Now spin around until you become slightly dizzy. There is one caution: you must turn from left to right. In other words if you were to place a clock on the floor you would turn in the same direction the hands are moving.'

Okay, pretty straight forward but the text goes on to explain more detail:

'At first the average adult will only be able to spin around about half a dozen times until he becomes dizzy... To begin with practice only to the point of slight dizziness. As time passes and your vortexes become more rapid in movement you will be able to practice to a greater extent.'

The idea is to be able to build up gradually to a preferred 21 revolutions - though no more than 50.

One of the examples giving to the benefits of this are the Maulawiyah (there are alternative spellings) people often referred to as the Whirling Dervishes.

These Whirling Dervishes are seemingly noted for 'the virility of the old men, they are strong, hearty and robust. Far more than Englishmen are at their age."

All well and good (after maligning us Englishmen!) but according to the Lamas the Dervishes over-do the spinning. Keeping it simple, what this does is over stimulate the vortexes in the knees.

This is why the spinning should be preferably only 21 revolutions (and no more than 50).

So there we go, a way get those vortexes spinning for health, rejuvenation and virility.

I suppose I'd better add that the above is given as information only. Before starting any exercise program consult with your doctor or medical practitioner.

Feelings And A Message From Her Friend Telepathically

ANN number plate on a Porsche

A 67 Not Out reader's coincidence story today with thanks to The Mad Witch.

At the end of last year I had this strange, worrying feeling about my old friend Ann who I have known since our school days together.

Because of this I decided to phone her but there was no reply on her land-line. This wasn't too unusual as she lives on her own so I tried calling her mobile but again there was no reply.

I mentioned this to my husband but he didn't think anything of it. "She's off out, you know how scatty she is," he mumbled.

Later we had to go into town and, as we stopped at traffic lights, I noticed the car in front had the registration number which began ANN and then a number.

On the car radio the DJ said that the next song 'is for Ann from her friend' - I saw this as some sort of message.

I said to my husband, "See that's Ann again, and it was on that car in front of us. She's trying to contact me."

This sent my husband into laughter and hysterics and he told me in no uncertain terms what he thinks of such ideas..

"Would you drive over to Ann's place, please?"

"You must be joking, "he answered, "it's miles away."

I felt very uneasy as we did our shopping and then returned home. The answer-phone was flashing and I switched on to see the message. It was from Ann.

Her message was garbled, typical of her, but the gist was that she was in hospital as she'd had a car accident that morning. The good news was that she was all right other than bruising and would be back home the next day.

I spoke to her the following day and she said how, when she had the bump in her car, she was thinking about me and how she should ask me to come over for a few days so we could catch up on each others news.

And that's what I did. Two 'mad witches' together as my husband calls us.

But whatever he thinks Ann and I have agreed that we'll experiment to see if we can send each other messages telepathically. I won't tell the husband as he'd simply say something like, "Why? When you can use the phone."

Anna Laetitia Barbauld And Life

Anna Laetitia Barbauld
Life! we've been long together
Through pleasant and through cloudy weather;
Tis hard to part when friends are dear,
Perhaps 'twill cost a sigh, a tear.
Then steal away, give little warning.
Choose thine own time,
Say not "Good-night," but in some brighter clime,
Bid me "Good-morning."

Anna Laetitia Barbauld
(20 June 1743 – 9 March 1825)

Was This An Alien Abduction?

Alien abduction experience

This is another unusual experience, following the example shown in Monday's post, The UFO Visit And Abduction Experience.

I'm not going to try to explain what this actually was because I don't know. The writer is leaning towards this being an alien abduction, as she has had similar experiences previously - and insists that it definitely wasn't a dream.

"Late at night I am lying in bed and awake thirsty. I go downstairs and pour a glass of water from the fridge. I take a few sips, it is too cold - so I put the pitcher back in the fridge and the glass (needn't waste it, right?)

I begin my journey back upstairs when I pass the basement door and on the wall in the basement I see a blue triangular light flickering in circles and random patterns. I can only describe it as like a screen saver - only it was a blue triangle with one corner bent. It was as if the light was bending to the wall.

At first, I am intrigued but seconds after seeing the light an incredible panic came over me. I shouted, "No! Not tonight!"

It was as if I knew something was going to happen. Next thing I remember I am being pulled backwards into the sliding glass door. I must have passed through it - !?

The next thing is, I find myself in bed ... as if I walked up the stairs and nothing had happened. I felt extremely and unusually calm and relaxed. I looked at the wall near my bed and there was another light moving there - same light, only this one was white and rotating slowly. It was as if it was saying, "It is all over. You can rest now."

 The next morning I was telling my husband what an unusual experience I had and how it must have been a dream. I opened the fridge to get something and there was my glass of water ... I really had been up.

This is only one of many unusual things that have happened over my life. I have strange night happenings dating back to when I was three years old..."
