I attended a science lecture last night at the University of Sydney.  I really love the old buildings on campus, I felt like I was at Hogwarts and any minute Hagrid was going to come strolling across the lawn towing some weird mythical beast. Yeah, that would have rocked!



The lecture was on deep sea exploration off the coasts of Australia. Since it was a free public lecture there was a bit of fundraising and public awareness worked into it. I have to admit that it is pretty sad how little the Aussie government supports marine research considering it is an island nation with huge expanses of coastline & the world famous Great Barrier Reef. The budget only allows for one boat, a tiny research vessel, and that funding is over next year, so in 2009 Australian marine labs won't even have a boat to use. The presenters talked about the fact that we currently know more about the moon than we do our own planet's oceans. We have only explored about 6% of the world's underwater terrain, leaving the remaining 94% totally undiscovered.

This brightened up my morning. The Food Court Musical: Youtube

I have been known to turn a mundane evening at home of cooking or cleaning into a musical number myself. *grins*
I totally fell for this. I was all ready with snarky retorts.....thankfully I read the comments first. Damn yooou BRAF......Damn yooooou.

In my defense, it is not actually April 1st here in Australia. :-P
Latest Burning Man Live Journal Community Post

In a way, I was looking forward to this actually happening.
I found an interesting article on the history of "what side of the road to drive on."  I was surprised to find out that the majority of the world drives on the right hand side of the road. For some reason, I had thought that America was the exception to the rest of the world who drive on the left side. This just goes to show that global education is really important & to put your assumptions to the test.

To the Magicians on my friends list, or anyone interested in energy clearing. Have you cleared your personal space recently?  Sometimes I need a reminder to do this, as I am not as disciplined with it as I used to be. My New Years goal is to become more proficient again with my regular energy sweeps.

I was talking with a friend about general banishing/protection and clearing of ones energy field. I really love the LBRP for how quick, simple and powerful it can be.  Another one of my favorites is chanting the Hebrew phrase:

"Kadosh, Kadosh, Kadosh. Adonai. Tsebayoth!"  (caw-dosh...add-oh-nigh.....sab-eye-yoth)

I think that the New Year is a perfect time to cleanse and clear our energies so that we have more power and clarity to start our year. Whenever I have used the chant above I am filled with so much strength and I can really feel the space around me cleansed and revitalize. 

Blessings

Kadosh, Kadosh, Kadosh Adonai Tsebayoth  from the book "Keys of Enoch" 

I first learned this chant about 16 years ago.  My spiritual teacher taught it to me with the instruction, if you ever are fearful of the beings you see, or encounter just recite this chant.  If they are not of the light, they cannot stay.  Later, I hear a musical version of it. 

1.    I now know it “clears” all the fields in the body and bridges us to all other dimensions. 

2.    It is extremely powerful. 

3.    This mantra activates the holy grids in our bodies.

4.    It is a bridge from 3D to all other dimensions

5.    Immersed in the chant, we become one heart.


Notes: Even though this website might appear as your garden variety lightworker page, this is a very old and powerful magickal chant. I also prefer the spoken/sung version of this chant in your own natural voice...but that website has an audio sample.

Hi there. I am in Yeppoon Australia, which is near the Gold Coast and there is a big fat cyclone heading our way. Well.....maybe not THAT big....but still it is nice to see the waves so rough and the wind blowing. I am a strange bird and actually like the stormy weather in this quaint little resort town. 

[profile] vega_33 and I are with his folks at this cute resort to celebrate our Christmas Holiday. We saw this goth van earlier and were comforted to know that some of our people may actually be residing here. 

 

I miss the internet. I will admit it. :-D  I have been longing to read about the happenings of all my lovely friends during their holiday seasons. I only have about 3 minutes left to blog this on the hotel computers so I will have to catch up later.

Vega and I are smashingly buzzed on delicious red wine at the present. Getting ready to consume mass quantities of yummy food in the restaurant. The trip has been really good so far. I got to hear all these fun stories about him as a child from his family, AND see Photos TOO!!! :-D  I am sure the gift will be returned to him when he spends more time with my family next year.  Ahhhh so many upcoming plans in the new year. I am really excited about 2008. 

Shyte....the 2 minute warning has just beeped. Well....more later with photos from all of this overseas frolicking. I wish you all a wonderful festive new years celebration. Hugs and Kisses!!

Yes, when I am buzzed on wine I get all cuddley....as some of you may well remember.

Love to all from down under. And yes I did see some kangaroos out here. :-D

While surfing for ecards to send to family.  I came across.....

The Cat Who Loved Jesus

Does anybody know of any good New Years Eve happenings in the Brisbane area?

[profile] vega_33 and I will be in Brisbane for Christmas with his family, and we are looking for some interesting things to do for both Boxing Day and NYE.

I heard about Southbank for the big firework display but wondered if you knew of anything else?

Thanks
:-)

Happy Holidays (Solstice...Christmas...Kwanzaa....Festivas....or whatever other holiday you are celebrating.)

I got to wondering today, why don't we have any chocolate jesus'? We have chocolate bunnies, santas, and other random things. Why no Chocolate Christ?

The Catholics should make up a special chocolate wafer for Christmas Mass.

In other news it has been surprisingly cold and rainy here for Summer Solstice. There was a bit of sun the day after Solstice which helped us to feel the gratitude of Sol's light upon the earth.

A cute new Aussie saying that I heard today.

At a video rental store the clerk asked me if I knew what I wanted to Hire already.

Hire?  giggles.  I love it.  When I am done with the video rental and I bring it back do I fire it?
