This post is going to focus on some personal experiences with Synchronicity which I’ve been encountering over the last month. I’m going to touch on a few relevant movie syncs, but really I want to focus on the synchronicities which have been happening in my life outside of the TV screen. As you’ll be fully aware, Synchronicity don’t just appear in the movies. They’re happening in our daily lives all the time, and if we pay close enough attention to these random moments of synchronicity then we have an opportunity to reveal the messages contained within them.
Since starting this Blog on the 23rd January there's been a bewildering number of synchronicities floWing into my life, with an intensity I’ve not really encountered before. They’ve kept coming in the form of movie syncs, but the most interesting ones have been appearing at my work place and my home, and I’d like pause the investigation for a moment to look at a few of these examples. They seem to tie in nicely with where we currently are in the story, so it’s not going to distract from the pervious material.
Encoded within these recent synchronicities is a message, a very simple one, that I’d like to share with you. Everything I’m going to mention below happened exactly the way I’m going to tell it. I don’t see the point of adding arms and legs to a story just to try and make it sound better. In fact, I couldn’t make some of this stuff up if I tried!
So where to begin……
About a month ago (just before I created this Blog) I started a new job as a web design trainee for a local IT company. Two or three days into the job I’m settling in at my new work station, getting to know my new work colleagues, and I overhear one of them say the words ‘Black Sun’. It’s not exactly the typical kind of phrase you might hear being thrown about the office, so naturally my ears pricked up and I was instantly curious. I paused what I was doing to ask my colleague why he’d mentioned the ‘Black Sun’.
I just want to point out that at no point have I mentioned Sirius or anything else about this blog to my work colleagues. I don’t really want them thinking that I’m nuttier than squirrel shit, so I’ve kept this ‘under wraps’ for the time being. Maybe in the future I’ll tell them but for now it doesn’t feel right, and if it doesn’t feel right, I wait until it does.
My colleague explained that they had built a website for the local harbour and that day he'd encountered a problem with the webcam. My colleague had designed the website himself and positioned the webcam so that it was overlooking the harbour so that fisherman could log on and see what ships/fishing boats were docked.
Now up until that point in time the webcam had been working perfectly. That was until 2/3 days into my job when the ‘Black Sun’ made itself known. Looking on the webcam I saw that there was now a big black circle in the centre of the Sun – a symbol I was very familiar with from my research into Synchronicity. On this particular day the sky was clear of clouds (a rare phenomenon for the North of Scotland!) and the Sun was shining directly into the lens of the webcam. It hadn’t damaged the lens, but for some reason there was now a ‘Black Sun’ instead of the normal one. As the day went on and the Sun rose in the sky, the Black dot rose with it. To this day the ‘Black Sun’ can be seen when the Sun is particularly bright, and my colleagues still don’t know what’s caused it. It’s something of a mystery to them.
Here’s a picture taken directly from the harbour webcam a few days after the event I just mentioned above. The Black ‘dot’ isn’t as large as it was that first time, but it’s still there nonetheless:
Now I’m not in any way suggesting that I’m the cause of the appearance of the ‘Black Sun’. Not in the slightest. I’m sure there’s a perfectly plausible technical explanation behind why this might occur, and I’m sure it’s quite common. But what did interest me was that it only made it’s appearance a few days into my new job. When I started work at the IT company I thought the synchronicity stuff would be put on the backburner for a while, it might even begin to fade out of my life, but this ‘coincidence’ suggested that it wasn’t going to be as simple as that. I wasn’t going to escape so easily.
A few days/week went by without further incident and I focused on creating my first post for this new Blog and that's when the next Synchronicity happened once again at my new work place. A large box was delivered to the office and for some reason it was sat beside my desk (it’s actually still there to this day) even though it had nothing to do with me.
To begin with I didn’t pay much attention, it was just a box after all, but a few hours later I had an urge to check it out. I leaned over my desk to take a closer look, saw that it was a computer monitor, and then grinned to myself when I noticed the label. The model happened to be a ‘SyncMaster’ (*Thanks Jaspal for pointing out that there's a Black Cross in this pic):
For anyone whose getting the wrong impression here: I’m not trying to stroke my own ego. Please do not interpret this the wrong way. I was dubious about posting this sync because it could be misconstrued, but this is what I saw, and throughout this story I’ve said (and will continue saying) everything exactly as it’s happened.
I’m not even suggesting that I am a ‘SyncMaster’. What is a 'SyncMaster' anyway!?
What I take away from this synchronicity is that I’m beginning to walk a path towards Mastering Synchronicity. I’m probably only one or two steps into the journey, with many many miles to go, but I’m on my way. The ball is finally beginning to roll and it feels like there’s a momentum propelling me forward. I don’t think I could stop this momentum even if I wanted to, so for now I’m simply going to let gravity take it’s course and see where I end up.
So getting back to the computer monitor, I noticed that the exact model was a Samsung Syncmaster T240 HD. The words ‘Syncmaster’ jumped out at me for obvious reasons, but I noticed the numbers 2 and 4 (24/42) in the title. I could make sense of these numbers because I’d recently been reading about them over at The Blob and Centre Portal. While checking out Jim’s great work over at Centre Portal I noticed that he’d mentioned the letters ‘HD’ in one of his recent posts. I could now link the Samsung Syncmaster T240 HD to this:
That was a little weird, but it got stranger when I realized that I could also make sense of the ‘Samsung’ part as well.
Since starting my new job I’ve been creating this Blog, but in my spare time I’ve also been creating a new website to showcase some of my paintings and drawings which I did a few years ago. So while looking back at my previous work and preparing it for the new art website (which can be found at http://www.richardarrowsmith.com/ for anyone interested), this particular painting caught my eye:
I painted this portrait of 'Sam the Dog' in 2003. Sam's owners wanted to include the ‘Cracked Egg’ in the painting because it was his favorite squeaky toy. For anyone whose been keeping up to date with The Blob and A Few Shots to Shaman, then you’ll know that the ‘Cracked Egg’ theme has been popping up quite a lot lately.
So I now had a Dog called Sam (with connections to the Cracked Egg) appearing in my life at the exact same time that I was encountering unusual synchronicities at my workplace, and writing this new Blog about a Dog-Star/Black Sun.
I put two and two together and came up with the ‘Dog-Sun’, or ‘Sam-Sun’, which isn’t that far away from ‘Samsung’. I could now link the Dog (Sam-Sung) to the ‘Syncmaster’, the ‘Black Sun’ (seen on the webcam), the ‘HDNA’ references, and my new Blog. All of these syncs happened within about a week of each other, and I wondered what on earth was going on.
So I paid particular attention to the Dog portrait because it felt a little weird that a painting I did about 5 years ago was somehow involved in all of this. 5 years ago I didn’t even know that Sirius was a Dog-Star, couldn’t have pointed it out to you in the night sky, and if you’d told me I’d be writing about it today then I’d have declared you insane.
I wondered why the Cracked Egg should be making an appearance beside Sam(Sun) the Dog, so I took a look at the blog A Few Shots to Shaman to read the post entitled ‘That’s Eggzactly What I Said!’ to see if I could learn more about the Egg.
I reread the post and was drawn to one image in particular. My eye lingered on the poster for ‘The Core’ (a movie I’d completely forgotten about) because it reminded me of the Cracked Egg. I made a mental note of this image, due to it's relevance, and left it at that:
A few days passed without further incident and I completed the post called The SlumDog-Star. I was about to upload it late at night, when I had a change of mind and decided to sleep on it instead. If any new insights came to me in the morning then I could add them in before posting it onto the Blog.
So the following morning I got up out of bed, did my usual thing, and went into the garden for a smoke while my dog Jake went off to relieve himself. I was just about to head back into the house when I looked down and noticed a stone sitting on top of my refuse bin. I’ve no idea how long this stone had sat there, but this was the first time that I paid it any attention. Here’s the stone eggzactly as I found it that morning:
I’d been to the beach with my kids the previous week and my eldest daughter (whose 11 years old) decided to take this stone home as a souvenir. She has a habit of breaking stones, don’t ask why – I think it’s just a destructive streak that most kids have at her age. She just loves smashing things.
Considering I’d recently been reading about the ‘Cracked Egg’ themes appearing over at A Few Shots to Shaman and The Blob, and found the ‘Cracked Egg’ in the portrait of Sam the Dog, I paused to take note of the synchronicity. Cracked Egg, Cracked Stone….same thing.
I have quite a long garden so the local council has given me two refuse bins for disposing my cut grass. I also live at number 11, so here we see 11:11 associated with a Cracked Stone which my 11 year old daughter took home from the beach. If you’re not sure of the relevance of the numbers 11:11 then go check out my last posts The SlumDog-Star and Subliminal Scooby SnaKK:
Since writing this Blog I’ve been thinking a lot about the Two Towers and how they represent two separate halves of the same whole. They symbolize the Yin and Yang, so it seemed fitting that I should find two halves of a stone sitting on top of the number 11, because 11 is a visual representation of the Two Towers.
So I fetched my camera, and took these photos of the Cracked Stone/Egg:
I wondered why this new sync was appearing in my life on the same day that I was going to upload the SlumDog-Star post. So while re-reading the post I realized that there was another level of meaning encoded into the article that I discovered on the New York Times website.
If we look once more at the article below, then we notice in the title that there’s a ‘Merger’ taking place. Things are becoming ‘One’. It’s mentioning the ‘future’ and somehow it’s related to the ‘Sirius Star’ Howard Stern (who we've seen connected to ‘The Two Towers’ in his movie Private Parts):
I deduced from these Synchronicities that there's a 'Merging' taking place. Things are beginning to come together:
The day before I found the Cracked Stone/Egg sitting on my refuse bin I'd encountered the poster for The Core, so looking back at the poster my eye was drawn to the tagline: ‘Earth has a deadline’.
So I asked myself ‘why is Earth on a deadline?’ What are we heading towards, and why are the numbers 11,11 (which we saw on my refuse bins) somehow caught up in the equation. If we consider that each half of the Stone/Egg represents one of the ‘Twin Suns’, then it suggests that these solar companions are moving closer together. As a result (look at ‘The Core’ poster above for an example) the Earth is beginning to 'Merge'. It's becoming ‘whole’. As a result WE are becoming whole.
I wondered if the Twin Suns/Pair of Pentagrams (our own local Sun and the Dog-Star Sirius) was the catalyst for this shift. The fact that all of these syncs were happening at the same time as I was writing about Sirius on this Blog suggested that the Dog-Star had some kind of role to play in this event. It had something to do with this 'Coming Together'.
Consider 9/11 for a moment. The Twin Towers came down and sent a shockwave through the Earth which reverberated throughout humanity. It shook things up in a big way. It helped kick-start Jake Kotze’s blog called The Brave New World Order, which helped teach me how to use Synchronicity in a completely new way. Without the efforts of Mr. Kotze I don’t believe that any of these Synchromysticism blogs would be what they are today. In fact many of them probably wouldn’t even exist….including this one.
After 9/11 life would never be the same again for the majority of people. It changed the course of history. So what is being built in place of the Twin Towers? A single Tower - The Freedom Tower. The Two Towers (duality) are being merged into 'One' right before our very eyes:
Two is becoming One:
Looking back at the painting I did of Sam the Dog, I noticed that I created this portrait in the year 2003, and I started looking at the symbols contained within it to see what I could learn:
In one way I could see that the events of 9/11 in 2001 had given ‘birth’ to a new world (represented by the chick emerging from the Egg). I could also see that back in 2003, not long after the Twin Towers fell, things weren’t ‘Coming Together’. There was War. Things were split apart, fragmented, and a dramatic change was necessary to help hurry things along – after all ‘Earth is on a deadline’. From another perspective I could also see that the Dog/God was overseeing the entire process.
The Dog/God whose helping usher us all into this new era of ‘Oneness’ could very well be the Sirius Star. The title of this article certainly suggests that there's a connection:
While chewing all of this over (and let’s recall that every synchronicity mentioned so far has only come to my attention in the last month) I knew that I was onto something interesting, but even today I’m still not sure what that ‘something’ really is. It’s all vague and blurry, but I think the general message itself is quite loud and clear.
Just in case I hadn’t got the message ‘loud and clear’ the Universe decided to send me a reminder while I was in the middle of writing the post entitled ‘Subliminal Scooby SnaKK’. This was only a couple of days ago. I came home from work, was sat at the table with my partner and kids eating a meal together, and on the spur of the moment I decided to tell them a joke.
The previous night (while writing the Scooby SnaKK post) my mum had sent me an email, passing on a joke she’d recently received from a friend. I read the joke, thought it was quite funny, closed the email and didn’t think twice about it. I didn’t add two and two together, and the synchronicity contained within it went unnoticed…..until I decided to test the joke out on my family. Here it is:
The English and Scots
There's a Scotsman driving through Europe and an Englishman is driving in the opposite direction. In the middle of the night, with no other cars on the road, they hit each other head on and both cars go flying off in different directions.
The Scotsman manages to climb out of his car and surveys the damage. He looks at his twisted car and says, 'Jesus, I’m really lucky to be alive!'
Likewise, the Englishman scrambles out of his car and looks at his wreckage. He too says to himself, 'I can't believe I survived this wreck!'
The Englishman walks over to the Scotsman and says, 'You know, I think this is a sign from God that we should put away our petty differences and live as friends instead of such rivals.'
The Scotsman thinks for a moment and says, 'You know, you're absolutely right! We should be friends. Now I'm gonna see what else survived the wreck.'
So the Scotsman pops open his boot and finds a full unopened bottle of Whisky. He says to the Englishman, 'I think this is another sign from God that we should toast to our new found understanding and friendship'.
The Englishman says, 'You're damn right!' and he grabs the bottle and starts sucking down the Whisky. After putting away nearly half the bottle, the Englishman hands it back to the Scotsman and says, 'Your turn!'
The Scotsman twists the cap back on the bottle and says, 'Nah, I think I'll wait for the police to show up.'
That’s the joke. I personally found it quite funny. If you’ve ever watched the movie Braveheart then you’ll understand why there’s a rivalry between the Scottish and English. I’m actually part Scottish, part English, and even have a bit of Irish thrown in for good measure, so I’m not particularly biased one way or another.
Anyway, I finish the joke at the dinner table, my 11 year old daughter just stares at me not really ‘getting’ it, my partner has a little chortle over it, and then my jaw nearly hits the floor.
Usually I have the TV turned off while we eat together, but this day it had been left on and the Channel 4 news had just started. Within the space of about 10-20 seconds after I finished the punchline of the joke, the news reporter gave a summary of the days news and mentioned that a Satellite had collided into another Satellite, and a Submarine had recently collided into another Submarine.
It suddenly dawned on me that I’d just told a joke about a Car colliding into another Car.
I’m sure the look on my face must have been comical because I couldn’t quite believe what I’d just heard. In the previous few days I’d just encountered all of the ‘Coming Together’ synchronicities mentioned above, I’d been thinking that very day about what these ‘Coming Together’ synchronicities actually meant, had just told a joke about two cars ‘Coming Together’, and within seconds I hear the news reporter reveal that a pair of Satellites and Submarines had all ‘Come Together’.
I never actually watched the rest of the news broadcast because I finished eating, hopped onto my computer and looked it up on he BBC News website. These are the links to the articles for anyone interested:
I’m going to mention a few things about the Satellite collision because this act of ‘Coming Together’ seems to be particularly syncnificant. The two satellites which collided are called Kosmos-2251 and Iridium 33. Here’s a picture taken from the BBC website to show where the collision took place in the sky:
The first thing I want to point out is the name Iridium 33. I mentioned the number 33 in ‘The SlumDog-Star’ and looked at how it relates to the 33 vertebrae in our spinal column. It’s the Pillar/Tower/Ladder that the Kundalini energy in the base of our spine rises up in order to awaken our 3rd Eye. You may be familiar with the term ‘Kundalini Rising’. Our spine regulates the flow of Ki/Chi//Life Force Energy throughout our bodies and it also houses the 7 chakras. If there’s a blockage in one of these chakras then we remain out of balance, and the Kundalini cannot progress up the ‘Ladder’ as a result.
The Kundalini cannot rise, and our 3rd Eye remains closed. If we consider that the Kosmos-2251 (Kosmic energy) and the Iridium 33 (our Spine/Chakras) recently collided, then this gives us one example of what this ‘Coming Together’ might entail.
In the BBC article about the Satellite collision, it says that this type of event is ‘extremely unusual’ and the ‘Space debris experts say the chances of such collisions have been rising’. So let’s apply some of this to the Spine/Chakra analogy.
You could look at the ‘Kundalini Rising’ as something only a few people have been able to attain in the past (Shamans, Monks, Yogis etc) which is why the process of Spiritual Awakening could be considered ‘extremely unusual’ (just like it tells us on the BBC website). But as the ‘space debris experts’ state, these events (of Kundalini Rising) are going to ‘rise’. You won’t have to be a Buddhist Monk or an experienced Shaman for this transition to take place. The Kosmos-2251 (Kosmic energy) is possibly going to force it upon us whether we want it to happen or not. If we’re balanced then this ‘transition’ will be smooth, and it’ll naturally floW. If we’re not ready for the Kosmos-2251/Kosmic Energy, then this ‘Coming Together’, which seems to be on the horizon, could come as a bit of a shock to the system. Our Spines/Chakras (represented by the Satellite Iridium 33) may not be ready for the influx of these new energies, and when they collide……..you get the picture. It might not be a pretty sight.
So the question is: where’s this ‘Kosmic energy’ going to come from?
On one hand you could say that it’s the Galactic Centre which we’re coming into alignment with in 2012. As we approach we could receive an influx of ‘Kosmic Energy’ (which will possibly alter us at the genetic level) and we’ll begin to align with our own Centre. We’ll connect with ‘The Core’ and our Kundalini will have a smooth passage up the Ladder of our spinal column. That’s one theory.
You could also look to our local solar system and say that it’s the alignment of our own planets around our Sun which become the catalyst for this ‘Shift’. Maybe the likes of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune etc will help focus, or direct, these incoming energies onto the surface of the Earth, and onto us. Maybe there’s a great number of different factors at play which will all combine, when the time is right, into one ‘Big Bang’. It could be a slow subtle ‘Awakening’, but from the synchronicities involving Car Crashes, Satellite Crashes, Submarine Crashes, it could be as drastic and as dramatic as 9/11. It could be like flicking a light switch and suddenly everything changes….in an instant.
I feel that one of the key players in this Cosmic Orchestra is the Dog-Star Sirius. I’ve not touched on some of the main points I want to discuss about this particular Star (as I seem to be getting sidetracked with these new syncs!) but I think that Sirius has a big role to play when it comes to the Ajna Chakra – the 3rd Eye.
We took a look at the 3rd Eye and the movie ‘Cast Away’ in the post ‘The SlumDog-Star’ and saw that Tom Hanks interacts with the Ladder(Spine) and then points to the number 33 (the number of vertebrae):
We saw how Tom Hanks is a man obsessed with ‘TIME’. In Cast Away we see him on a variety of magazine covers, one of them being ‘Time’ magazine:
At the end of the movie he escapes the island, returns home, and encounters this woman at the very end. She’s the one who helped save his life. In the final scene she turns to Tom Hanks and says - ‘Good luck Cowboy’:
We looked at how the Egyptian Mother Goddess Isis was known as Sothis, the name for the star Sirius. She was often depicted in the form of a Cow, which gives the ‘Cowboy’ reference in the movie ‘Cast Away’ a connection with Isis/Sothis/Sirius.
When we follow the breadcrumbs to the movie Toy Story 2, we find Tom Hanks in the role of another ‘Cowboy’ and again we see him on the cover of ‘Time’ magazine:
We also see him inside the Clock:
If we look at the move ‘The Number 23’ starring Jim Carrey we find that he can also be seen wearing the Sirius resonating Cowboy outfit:
In the same movie we learn that Jim Carreys psychiatrist is called Dr. Sirius:
If we look at the movie ‘The Truman Show’, again starring Jim Carrey, we see him in his younger years wearing the Cowboy outfit:
In the same movie we see him holding Sirius in his hands:
If we take a look at the movie ‘The Majestic’ we find that JC is ‘Time’ itself:
The same themes keep repeating themselves which suggests that there’s a link. It’s subtle, but it’s there nonetheless. Time, as you may have noticed, seems to be speeding up. There seems to be a lot of unusual phenomena surrounding the Clock:
The Cracked Stone/Egg, Sirius, and the numbers 11:11 seem to be related to Time, which seems to be speeding up as we hurry closer to the approaching Deadline – this ‘Coming Together’:
It also seems to be connected to the number 33 (via the Satellite Iridium 33 and the movie Cast Away) but it’s also connected to the Dog-Star Sirius.
If we take a look at the movie ‘Bolt’ which stars actress Miley Cyrus (is it just me or is Cyrus/Sirius very similar), then we find the Dog ‘Bolt’ interacting with the Cracked Stone/Egg which we find on the front of this Car:
In this scene we see Bolt smash head first into the Cracked Stone/Egg symbol, suggesting that the Dog(Star) and this ‘Coming Together’ are intimately connected to one another. We looked at the English/Scotsman joke involving a head on car crash earlier, and we see the same thing playing out this time with Bolt - the White Dog/Wolf:
Bolt and the Car ‘Come Together’ at high velocity:
A little later on in the movie we see Bolt holding an explosive frisby in his mouth, while leaping over the symbol of the Solar Cross, bringing Dog and ‘symbol of the Sun’ together in this image:
The frisby is about to detonate as it goes through a countdown sequence (think of the tagline ‘Earth has a Deadline’), and the camera zooms in close to these two numbers:
In the same sequence we see the Dog-Star Bolt staring into the 3rd Eye on the forehead of this henchman, while he tries to help Miley Cyrus/Sirius escape. Notice that the 3rd Eye shares the exact same symbol as the Cracked Stone/Egg we looked at earlier:
Where have we seen the ‘Black Hand’ before?
If we look on the Door of Bolt’s trailer, we find that he is the ‘Black Star’:
If we look at the Black Hand which seems to have strong connections with the Black Star, then we find the numbers 11:11 (represented by the four fingers) with a ‘bridge’ in the centre:
The ‘bridge’ between ‘The Two Towers’ forms the letter ‘H’:
The Two Fish of Pisces is another way of representing the Yin-Yang:
When I looked back at the webcam which overlooks my local harbour (the one which started displaying the ‘Black Sun’ when I started my new job) I noticed that the logo for the website is represented by the two fish of Pisces ‘Coming Together’:
Before finishing things up by looking at the Tarot, I just want to return briefly to the Satellite called Iridium 33, which crashed in the Kosmos-2251.
A quick look at Wikipedia revealed that the atomic number for Iridium is 77.
If you’re familiar with the previous posts then you’ll know that:
77 = OZ = PAN = White Wolf
‘The Tower’ Tarot card = 16th in the Major Arcana
Two Towers = 16 (1+6=7), 16 (1+6=7) = 77
The 16th letter of the alphabet = P
77 = OZ = PAN = White Wolf = Two Towers = PP
We therefore have the Iridium (77) Satellite, which symbolizes the ‘Two Towers’ (Duality), becoming ‘One’ with the Kosmos:
I can’t think of a more beautiful analogy than that. Duality on Earth is about to come to a dramatic end. We’re about to become ‘One’ with the Universe, and you could say that we’re on collision course with our Creator. We may merge gracefully, or we may shatter into a thousand pieces like the two Satellites….only Time will tell.
Here’s one final story which seems to fit in perfectly with everything mentioned here. It’s only come to my attention while writing this post so it feels like it should become part of it. Believe it or not but I did my Tarot cards at the start of January this year. I’ve been using the Tarot since I was a teenager and always do a reading for myself at the start of a new year, the start of a new job, or at the start of ‘something’. I like getting a glimpse of what’s approaching on the horizon. So I laid out twelve Tarot cards in a big circle with the thirteenth card in the centre. The 13th card represented the ‘hub’ of the wheel, with the 12 cards on the outside representing each of the twelve months. The card which I picked at random for the month of February was ‘Temperance’:
One of the reasons I started this Blog in February was because of this card. It’s got a ‘feel good’ factor about it. There’s a positive vibe surrounding this month for me, so why not use it to help launch a new project like this Blog. I’m glad that I did.
‘Temperance’ is card number 14 in the Major Arcana. When a Major Arcana card is pulled from the deck it suggests to me that I’m going to go through something quite big. It’s going to impact my life in some way. Temperance suggested that this impact was going to be a positive one. Having looked at the number 77 in a few of the posts I’ve written this month I can now see that I can find it in encoded within this Tarot card.
Temperance = 14
77 = 7 + 7 = 14
Here’s something that I’ve still not managed to bend my head around. When we looked at the name of the Satellite ‘Iridium 33’ (33 being a key number in this investigation) we saw that Iridium has the atomic number of 77.
While reading about Iridium on Wikipedia I wasn’t really prepared for this next synchronicity. Iridium (77) was named after the Greek Goddess Iris. When I did a quick Google search for a picture of Iris, guess which image appeared? This one:
A look on Wikipedia revealed that: ‘In Greek mythology, Iris is the personification of the rainbow and messenger of the gods. As the sun unites Earth and heaven, Iris links the gods to humanity. She travels with the speed of wind from one end of the world to the other, and into the depths of the sea and the underworld.’
Compare this image of Iris (taken from a Greek vase) with the Temperance Tarot Card above:
If we look again at the Satellite crash which happened in space(Above) and the Submarine crash which happened underwater (Below) then we can see why Iris/Iridium is connected to these two events which were broadcast on the news on the same day, in the very same sentence. Wikipedia says:
‘As the sun unites Earth and heaven, Iris links the gods to humanity. She travels with the speed of wind from one end of the world to the other, and into the depths of the sea and the underworld.’
Iris unites Heaven (Above - Satellite) with the Underworld (Below - Submarine). She ‘links the gods to humanity’ – she helps initiate this process of ‘Coming Together’.
We’ve looked at ‘The Eye’ in previous posts, and we’ve looked at the 3rd Eye in this one, so it makes sense that the Iris (which is connected to Iridium 33) is the colorful part of the Eye which surrounds the pupil – the part which is unique to each one of us. We've also looked at the movie 'Bolt' which features the 3rd Eye, and also happens to star the Dog loving actress/musician Miley Cyrus (or Miley cIRIS, or Miley Sirius.....take your pick).
I’ve briefly touched on the Egyptian Isis/Sothis/Sirius, so it’s also worth noting that her Brother/Husband (as many of you will already be aware) is osIRIS, or OZiris. It's also worth pointing out that the heiroglyph for the Egyptian God of the Underworld Osiris was a Throne accompanied by an Eye. And you're probably familiar with his son, and his 'Eye of Horus':
Iris = Iridium = Atomic Number 77
OZ = 77
OZ-IRIS = 77 + 77 = 7777
7 + 7 + 7 + 7 = 28
It just so happens that this is my last week being 28 years old as my birthdays next week. (*Also thanks goes to Jaspal, whose also 28 years old, for pointing out that there are 28 days in this month of February and that the Latin term for February, februum, means ‘Purification’.)
Here we see the Iris surrounding the pupil of the Eye (which coincidentally looks like a Black Sun with rays of light emanating from it):
Considering the Goddess Iris has made an appearance in my life, and considering the Iris is the one who surrounds the Pupil, it makes sense that at this moment in time it feels like it’s the Goddess Iris/Isis who seems to be teaching me (her Pupil) about the multifaceted nature of Synchronicity. I think she’s here to teach anyone whose ready to have their ‘eyes opened’.
Here’s one final story (this time I promise!) which also happened while writing this post. Before coming to the conclusions surrounding Iris and the Temperance card, I decided to do a ‘mini reading’ with only three Tarot cards. It was a spur of the moment thing to see if I could shed some more light on the ‘Coming Together’ theme which has developed over the last month.
So I had an urge to pull out the Tarot deck and draw three cards – Past, Present & Future. I’m only going to look at the ‘Present’ and ‘Future’ cards otherwise I’ll never get this post finished! For the ‘Present’ I chose this card:
This card makes perfect sense when I consider I’ve recently started my new job and this new Blog. I can make sense of the ‘Pair of Pentagrams’ in the picture above because I’ve been writing a lot about them recently. The card shows me working, and this month I’ve been doing more work than I can ever recall. This Blog has become much more than I first anticipated!
The next card, representing my ‘Future’, was this one:
All I can deduce from the Ace of Pentacles is that the ‘Pair of Pentagrams’ (seen above in the Two of Pentacles) are ‘Coming Together’. Two is becoming One. I’m still not sure what this means exactly (the Tarot cards didn't really help me draw any new conclusions), but I find that these two cards seem to sum up perfectly what this post is all about, which is why I decided to include them - Things are coming together! You can only get banged on the head with the same message so many times before you finally give in and accept it. (**note to Universe - I now get the picture loud and clear....you can stop bombarding me now....cheers)
So to sum up this section I just want to finish by saying that it feels like something big is currently taking place. Possibly monumental. The Yin and Yang are merging and I have no idea what’s going to happen as a result of this ‘Coming Together’. All I do know is that it feels good, positive, destined. Events have been set in motion and now they’re beginning to play out like a line of dominoes caught in a chain reaction. Something’s been initiated and I’m wondering when it’s all going to peak. I’ve no doubt it’s going to be in our lifetime, in fact I feel quite positive of this. Is it 2012? Earlier than that? Later?
I think the three most powerful words that you can ever say are: ‘I don’t know’. For anyone to say that they have all the answers is a clear signal to me that they certainly DO NOT have all the answers. No-one does, and that’s why I find the words ‘I don’t know’ are extremely liberating. We might have some of the clues, some of the pieces of the puzzle, but we don’t know it all. Anyone that says otherwise, or states something as 100% fact, is simply misleading themselves, and most likely misleading others gullible enough to believe it. What we can do is look at these clues and take away some vague predictions from them. Something is ‘coming together’, and from my current perspective I’d suggest that it’s our own local Sun and the star Sirius which are currently uniting together…..but that’s just speculation. This ‘Coming Together’ could be referring to the left and right hemispheres of our brain, our Ego and our Higher Self, an activation of our DNA, the alignment of the planets in our Solar System with the Galactic Centre, none of the above, or all of the above, or something entirely different. I don’t know!
I feel that some answers will be forthcoming if I/WE pay attention and read between the lines. If/when I have more clues I’m going to investigate them on this site but for now I’m going to continue looking at the Dog-Star Sirius. After all, these ‘Coming Together’ syncs have only started appearing in my life while writing this blog, and what’s the whole focus of this blog? The Dog-Star Sirius.
It suggests that the ‘Black Star’ is a going to play some kind of role in this ‘Coming Together’. I can’t say anything with 100% certainty other than I feel honored to be alive at this point in our Earths history, and I’m delighted to be sharing these insights with you the reader.
Thanks for joining me on this journey!
***Update: Thanks to some new insights from James Ratte and Jaspal I'm going to end this post with a few final synchronicities. In 'The SlumDog-Star' we looked at Noel Gallagher from the band Oasis, and the former Beatle Ringo Starr. Both seemed to be connected to the Black Dog Star in various different ways, so it seemed fitting that The Beatles wrote a song called 'Come Together' as it ties in perfectly with all the 'Coming Together' syncs we've already looked at in this post.
Another interesting link comes in the form of the Egyptian Scarab Beetle which was a symbol of Rebirth, and as I've already discussed, I see this 'Coming Together' as an initiation into a new way of living, the 'Rebirth' of life as we know it.
So while looking for a video for 'Come Together' I came across the band Soundgarden who did a cover of this very song:
So what's the relevance of the Soundgarden connection? Well James Ratte kindly pointed out that this particular band has connections to the 'BLACK hole SUN', and the lead singer Chris Cornell (CC/33) was also founder and frontman for 'Temple of the DOG':
To finally finish this post off we now have the 'Black Sun-Dog' resonating Chris Cornell, singing these lyrics from 'Come Together', which was originally a song by The Beatles (Rebirth):
Here come old flattop he come grooving up slowly
He got joo-joo eyeball he one holy roller
He got hair down to his knees
Got to be a JOKER he just do what he please.....
