|Armed with one of the largest telescopes in the world, the aptly named Very Large Telescope at the ESO Observatory in Chile, astronomers are conducting a search for what they once were certain had to be a brown dwarf star. The only problem is that now the star seems to have vanished without evidence.|
What happened? Brown dwarfs, compared to their better known red dwarf counterparts are significantly cooler, dimmer objects which at a glance bear more resemblance to planets than to other stars.
Although they release heat and bear a chemical composition similar to that of the sun, astronomers tend to refer to them as “failed stars,” since they are too small to set off any thermonuclear reactions within their cores. This particular vanishing dwarf was thought to be part of a double-star system, the V471 Tauri, located within the Taurus constellation, only 163 light years from Earth. Within this system, the stars orbit each other in 12 hour intervals, which causes the brightness to diminish every six hours, when one star crosses directly in front of the other.
However, the timing of this eclipse never happened at an entirely predictable pace, leading the researchers to suspect that a brown dwarf’s gravitational pull was pushing on the stars and causing the lapse – it’s the only thing consistent with the minimal lapsing patterns. With the use of a new powerful camera called SPHERE, they set out to plot out the location of the brown dwarf, but found nothing where they predicted it would be.
“This is how science works,” said Adam Hardy, the study’s lead author who remains undaunted by the road ahead. The new study was published this week by the journal, Astrophysical Journal Letters. “Observations with new technology can either confirm or, as in this case, disprove earlier ideas.”
Perhaps most intriguing is that while a brown dwarf appears to be hiding from them, the cluster it waxes influence over is among the brightest and largest of deep-sky objects visible in the evening sky.
The binary star system is found in what astronomers call the Hyades cluster, named for the nymphs of Greek mythology who are responsible for the rain.

After a good half a days work on my manuscript, I figured I'd had enough of it for the moment. So I crashed on the couch, and went to watch Iron Man, which came out in 2008. Not because of Gwyneth Paltrow who is quite beautiful but just not my type, but more because of Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr. Basically, because he is me....
Yes, I could totally dig being Tony, except for a few rough edges that Sander doesn't really have anymore. But the totally abundant does-as-he-pleases single guy could very well be in my future, and not give me any uneasiness if it did come true!
But this is not a movie review, at least not of any particular movie. It is more a view on moviewatching in particular, and how different people do it differently. We probably all are somewhat annoyed if in a movieviewing audience, there is this guy that constantly keeps telling you what went wrong in the making of this movie, don't we? And yet, there is an entire group of Earthlings on this very planet that have exactly that as a hobby: http://nitpickers.com/
They spend whole evening, watching every movie they can get their hands on, and diligently report their findings on the Internet. I don't think there is one movie that has received zero nitpicks, because that is what they call them. It is defined as any situation that defies believability, or in other words any deviation that places itself outside of consensus reality. Are you one of these guys too? I am! I actually in my past entered a few nitpicks, but the novelty of it wore off quickly, because they're just grubby little details, and I'm a Big Guy, aiming for the Big Connections. And just now, while doing the slicing and peeling for dinner, I came across a beauty!
Nitpickers are considered weird by many, yet we all from time to time do it. But it is what you do with your nitpicks that makes all the difference: observing them and immediately loudly alerting everyone to them usually does not promote a friendly reaction. Hence everybodies revoltion regarding the loud guy in the crowd. But let's look at a nitpick up close: if you find one, what have you found? Have you found a fact that diminishes the believability of the movie, or have you found an exception that points at a missing piece of the puzzle you call your Reality? Basically, if movies had no nitpicks, the following hierarchy would have to exist:
Now the order of these four may vary, because depending on the genre, Movie Reality may be inside or outside Consensus Reality. And depending on the audience, it may even be outside their Internal Reality. But we can be sure of one thing: none of the other three lie outside Reality!
Now a nitpick happens when movie reality pierces the reality that it is supposed to be inside of. If that happens, you can either yell that you don't believe the movie, you don't believe that one fact, or you can refrain from such gut reactions and take a look at what is happening.
If the movie shows something that does not fit the picture you want it to conform to, you have two obvious choices: you can either disregard the part that sticks out, or you can deduce that if the movie did it, then the reality in which you think it belonged was probably not yet fully complete. In that last case you may be led on a path to discover some new 'rule' to your Internal Reality, that would explain away the nitpick. And that, my friends, is a lovely path to be on, for it is usually loaded with syncs....
Love your Light,

"The Neutral Zone"
Blessed Are You BELOVED ONES! We Greet You with a Heart-Felt Welcome, Welcome One & All.
We invite each of you to take a moment here to settle into your chairs and become comfortable. And as you begin to settle into your seats feel your body being supported at this time.
We invite you to focus on your breath now and for the next few minutes as you quiet the mind leaving your cares of the day behind you as you breathe in the stillness of Peace into your Being as you breathe into your heart. Breathe with us now for the next few moments.
Allow your focus to settle into your Heart Center, into the Sanctuary of Your Sacred Heart Center as you continue to breathe. Feel the Peace... yes, feel the Peace as you continue to breathe in the Crystalline Golden Light particles which are now brightly illuminating within your Sacred Heart Center. Recall the Golden Chalice of your Heart Center, for you are the Holy Grail of Reunification, and know that as you continue to breathe you nourish your entire body and each cell of your Body as you breathe in the Crystalline Golden Light particles which are all around you...
Please pause here for a few moments to just breathe! KNOW that as you focus on your breath you Honor your body with Love & Acceptance for providing the vehicle for this amazing journey of Awakening. Please take these few moments to pause with Conscious Love & Acceptance of the Self and of your body as you breathe into your Heart Center.
AN INVITATION TO ADD YOUR LOVE & LIGHT TO THE CONSCIOUSNESS GRIDS OF MOTHER EARTH
We invite each of you to add your Love and your Light to the Consciousness Grids here on Mother Earth. As Often as you think of it we encourage each of you to send your Heart Light to these Consciousness Grids around Mother Earth. Hold the Vision of Heaven on Earth. Raise your heart and your minds above the 3D Grids to assist in the building of the New Consciousness Grids of Love & Peace.
Many of you may already be participating with different groups on
this very project. For those who are not actively participating with a
Group, you may simply visualize a "Golden Web" of Light surrounding the
Earth as the Lightworkers around the planet participate in a conscious
and/or non-conscious state to build the New Earth Consciousness Grid or
Christ Consciousness Grid. For those of you who do not have inner
vision yet that enable you to see these grids, in the simplest form of
support you may simply close your eyes
and see purposely choose to see a beautiful new world at peace where every man, woman & child are living a joyful, rich and rewarding life.
For those who feel inspired there are Groups you can join to work together on this project. However all that is truly needed is your Heart Light holding the Vision of the New Earth! Remain calm and peaceful no matter what the news media are reporting. Focus on maintaining a "neutral" state of mind and inner balance. Remember to ask yourself; What am I feeding and nourishing in my world? Be the Co-Creators of the New Earth Energies and add your Love & Light to the WHOLE!
The Photon Energies is much lower this month, yet the energies are much gentler than past cycles when the Photon Energy has dropped this low. We are continually being "refined" by these cycles of "ebbing and flowing" in the Waves of Light.
The healing of the Mental & Emotional bodies continues to be the "subject" or "focus" of our Journey through Ascension. Family, loved ones, friends & the work place will continue to mirror to each of us just where we are still stuck in duality and where ego is ruling our lives. The beautiful part of this is, all of these areas will also mirror to us where we have found BALANCE in our lives and where we are functioning from our hearts and not the mental energies of the ego intellect that always need to be right.
Many are still experiencing a rewire, however to a lesser degree than previously as this rewire phase is reaching completion. Which is good, many of us are ready for a "pause" to regroup and integrate the new energies. Many of you are already experiencing the new levels of awareness and inner communication arriving for each of you.
Those of you who are still feeling isolated and feeling the need to sleep a lot, do not concern yourselves. During these periods your Higher Self is doing much work on inner levels with the Consciousness Grids of the Planet. So simply be gentle with yourselves knowing you have been working the "Night Shift" on the Consciousness Grids.
Many have continued to feel challenged by ongoing Life Lessons as the energies have continued to accelerate in clearing the Mental & Emotional Bodies for the individual and well as the Group Consciousness. The increasing frequencies of Light are pushing all of us to transform, transmute and adapt to the incoming Waves of Light. For those who are less conscious they will be acting out that which is in need of clearing, those of us who are choosing to remain more conscious will have the "pleasure" of clearing out all that is need of resolution and balancing.
Now is a perfect time to eliminate and release the old, outworn, outdated and obsolete in our lives. We will be urged to let go of old attitudes, communication and thinking patterns that no longer serve our purpose. We may feel the need to re-evaluate our needs for security and asked to eliminate rigid emotions that no longer serve us. This is an excellent time to undergo an internal form of house cleaning, and look into ourselves to determine exactly what we do and do not need.
Since the recent Equinox of March 21 most of us have felt an increased intensity in the energies around relationships in general, all relationships, for life experience is all a relationship to something/someone else. Most of us have noticed that everything "feels" a bit different than in the past, yet "appearances" have not changed much. For myself personally even though the energies have certainly "shifted" what I have noticed as being different than in the "past" is how the "Aries" energies are much softer than in years past, and I am able to move through the intensity with greater ease than before. We are certainly in "New Territory" so to speak.
But don't hold your breath.... We are moving into a potentially intense time. There are some very powerful alignments later this summer, living in your heart is the only answer to moving through the times ahead. We will not go into the Astrology of it all here as our Channel is not an Astrologer and that would be too intricate for her mind to process.
(Please remember here Dear Ones as we cover the potential intensity ahead that you are the Creators of Your own Reality and have been given the Birthright of having Dominion over your Life and your Reality, that said let us proceed)
We can see & hear intensity in the news and media groups. We can witness the emotional turmoil among the US Citizens as President Obama's Healthcare Plan passed. We can also see the intensity in the recent storms, earthquakes, potential tsunami etc. (Remember Dear Ones that All is in Perfect Divine Order even when you have not understood the Perfection yet). Remember that each Soul has a Blueprint and those who leave in large groups during these horrendous events are their Plan. Have compassion for their families yet, know that all is in Perfection. These Souls are simply going to be experiencing from the other side of the veil now.
Many can also see some of the intensity in the lives of people you know (or very possibly even ourselves), as decisions that need to be made are up-front and center in your world. Many are moving in new directions, whether it refers to one's home or place of residence, as well as the work place.
For those who have denied any of your heart-centered needs, you will feel these needs push themselves into your awareness even stronger than before. All energy that is in need of resolution will find a way to manifest the desired outcome. Any of you who have experienced feeling overwhelmed or overloaded and as if you have reached your limits (physically, emotionally, or mentally), are looking to find a new way. Remember to ask to be shown the way... Then... Watch & Listen for the synchronicities of life to show you the way.
Now is the time to find the courage to follow your hearts lead. Love yourself enough to make the choices needed to free yourself from "Old Energy Patterns of Experience". Now is the time to overcome your "fear of the consequences" whatever they may be. These are times when our heart's choices take the reins.
Mercury will be entering a retrograde phase between April 17-May 11. This will be a period to reveiw, reorganize, redo items you are currently working on. Be very aware if you must sign contracts to read everything carefully before signing. Be aware that misunderstandings are often experienced and clarify that you understand what you are hearing.
Now is a perfect time to organize your thought processes around making these potential changes. Take a sheet of paper make 2 columns, PRO'S & CON'S. This will help you to actually SEE the benefits of making a change, rather than continuing to procrastinate. "Make Note" of the fears you may have, and look closely at the benefits you will receive if you work through your fear. When there is clarity the solutions will align and you will "Shift" your perspectives.
We are integrating great waves of higher frequency and now is a perfect time to Observe Everything in our outer lives as an indicator of our inner vibrational relationship and partnership with Soul. The question of "How am I feeling in this Now Moment" is the Most Profound Key to understanding the vibrational match we have with the thought or feeling of the people, places and work environments in our lives. For those who find themselves feeling less than a perfect match we invite you to spend more time each day in developing your Inner Relationship with Soul.
DEVELOPING A DEEPER CONNECTION WITH SOUL
The most important thing for anyone to do right now is to develop your inner communication with your Soul. Many of you have an open channel with your Soul. For those who have this connection and are not using it currently we encourage you to resume this relationship now more than ever. You will find this ultimately important as we move forward in the days ahead.
Automatic Writing is one of the most powerful forms of communication to open up as a way to communicate with your Soul. This will also expand any connection you may already have with Soul.
We invite you to sit down with a pen/pencil & paper available and then to state your intentions out loud.
Then close your eyes as though you are about to go into a meditation. Take several deep cleansing breaths and just before you begin to go more deeply into the meditative state open your eyes and just allow the pen/pencil to move in whatever manner the energies bring through, if you need to close your eye again just to re-enforce the energies then please do so at any time in the process...
Don't judge what comes out, don't worry about your penmanship, or punctuation... simply allow the words to just flow out. You will be surprised at what a powerful tool Automatic Writing can be! We recommend keeping a notebook, file, or journal of these writings as they will prove to be very "enlightening" as you reflect back on them at a later time.
As you develop the Automatic Writing you will expand the "portal" of communication in your brain. After having used Automatic Writing for a while, soon you will be able to just have regular conversations with Soul on a regular basis without the need for Automatic Writing, and yes even you can do this! At one time we all communicated in this way and will again. This is telepathic communication. (The benefits of Automatic Writing act like "a Chimney Sweep", cleaning out the "proverbial cobwebs" of the mind.)
ABOVE ALL ELSE, TRUST THE PROCESS! AND TRUST YOURSELF!
CREATING GREATER CLARITY IN PERSONAL MASTERY
What we would like to expand on at this time, is a greater understanding of what it means to "Integrate Polarity".
We have discussed achieving the "Neutral Zone" as we wish to call it today. This means not becoming polarized in opposition to anything. Now the "main point" we wish to focus on today is that this is not achieved by IGNORING polarity/duality.
If you will refer back to our messages on "The Power of Conscious Choice" and how by Mastering the Art of the "Observer Self" or "The Silent Witness. What this implies is Consciously Choosing to be "Fully Present in the Now Moment" and not functioning in " Auto Pilot" mode.
By continually choosing to be in "the Now Moment" we are witnessing each moment and being "fully present" which enables such clarity as to be aware of what our choices are in any given moment. We can divert a potential disagreement, or argument with an individual who may not be quite as conscious in that moment, by simply choosing not to go into a reactionary mode of needing to defend one-self, or needing to be right.
You may find yourself not able to understand the other persons point of view in that moment, yet the Key is not to "judge" that persons perceptions. In that moment use whatever method you prefer to transform/transmute the energies of polarity. My choice is simply to stop and breathe into my heart, or when more deeply triggered to use the Violet Flame of Transmutation to burn off any polarity in that moment.
A beautiful practice that I only know in a minimal way is to use the
Hawaiian Healing Practice of "Ho 'O Pono Pono". Which goes like this:
"Thank You, I'm Sorry, Please Forgive Me, I love You".
In my perception this is a perfect way to "neutralize" polarity issues. All anyone ever wants is to feel loved and accepted.
The Beauty of "Ho 'O Pono Pono" is, when you say "Thank You", you are expressing your Gratitude to the individual for being given the opportunity to CHOOSE LOVE and to Master in That Now Moment the Perfection of Neutrality and Balance.
As you say "I'm Sorry", the other person feels acknowledged, while on the other hand you are also saying you are sorry to yourself as well for not having been more fully conscious and present in that Now Moment.
"Please Forgive Me", honors the other person as it honors you, for most often we do not recognize that we are usually unhappy with ourselves when we may have "played out" for another person that their feelings have been overlooked somehow.
Any time we say "I Love You" is a healing to all involved and nourishes the Unity of which we are all a part.
If you find it infinitely impossible in a given situation to move into this space, a position that can neutralize a situation is to simply say. "Let us just agree to disagree on this matter, and I Love You", and move past the need to CONTROL another Being or situation. Realize that any need to control reveal an unconscious level of fear that has not been resolved.
When One is in a state of Balance within the "Neutral Zone", this means you have no need to create attachment cords, control circumstantial outcomes or engage in karmic relationships that energetically feed off of something external to yourself. This can look like the need to control another. This can look like judging another. This will also look like anger, or resentment or any expression of Duality Consciousness.
As we move forward on the Ascension Path it is of upmost importance to become "Self Contained" without the "need" to be attached to another emotionally or energetically. This is very challenging in family and intimate relationships to achieve, yet is a very important part of "Self Mastery". It is not to diminish the Love you have for anyone, it is to achieve freedom from "dependency" so that you may attain your Full Sovereignty as an integrated Divine Human who is whole unto themselves.
And so in last month's message we brought into focus the GREAT IMPORTANCE of LOVING THE SELF. As you refine your ability to Love Yourself you move into greater levels of Self Mastery and Balance enabling you to function in the "Neutral Zone" more, and more.
Spend time each day reflecting on the Truth of Your Being re-enforcing the TRUTH, THAT YOUR ESSENCE IS LOVE. Breathe this Essence of Your Own Light into your Being daily for it Nourishes your body and your Soul Essence and assists in building the Light Body. TRUST with a PASSION THE LOVE THAT YOU ARE, for this will nourish your Mental Body and Emotional Body as you find your Perfect Balance within. RE-MEMBER THAT YOU ARE GOD INDIVIDUALIZED AS YOU!
We invite you to embrace the Self with sincerity in your hearts as you affirm these words as your TRUTH!
And So It Is Beloved Ones, That We Honor You for The Journey You Have Chosen, You Are Loved beyond Measure!
We Are One, Master Dakon, Sariniela, Anjuriel, and the I AM That I AM

A message from Commander Sohin of Alpha Spaceship
April 11, 2010
“To do this, in the next few hours we will begin the preparations so that the Mother Ships, medium and small, who were fulfilling their respective missions elsewhere in the galaxy, can temporarily leave their activities and immediately join our forces of Light already present in this quadrant of the Milky Way.”Greetings from Alpha Spaceship!
We are very happy to make an announcement, that is sure to make all of you tireless workers of the Light very happy. With the clear intention to increase the number of safety and defense mechanisms against the opposing forces of the Dark, the Galactic Federation of Light has decided to increase the number of Mother Ships and vessels of medium and small size, which will be added to those that were already orbiting the Earth or in fixed positions and dormant at some point in space. The number of orbiting and dormant spacecraft will be increased to a number equivalent to 10% more than those already available for protection, purification and upliftment of all fauna, flora and humanity of your beautiful blue planet.
To do this, in the next few hours we will begin the preparations so that the Mother Ships, medium and small, who were fulfilling their respective missions elsewhere in the galaxy, can temporarily leave their activities and immediately join our forces of Light already present in this quadrant of the Milky Way.
This decision was taken by the Council of the Intergalactic Confederation and transferred to the Galactic Federation of Light in order to become effective, who addresses this Milky Way galaxy in particular.
So, you can receive this news with great joy and satisfaction, since this can mean an advancement in time towards First Contact, which will result in an unquestionable acceleration of the process of Ascension for humanity on Planet Earth, as well as all of your related kingdoms: the devic, elemental, animal, vegetable and mineral kingdoms. It is a matter worthy of celebration, that all souls will finally see their elevation to higher levels (as a tangible fact) even earlier than expected!
We would also like to inform you that the efforts of all those who are working towards the upliftment and awakening of all your brothers and sisters, amongst the humans on the planet who we are proud to consider our allies, have had much to do with this decision taken by the Elders Council. Your momentum and faithful dedication has successfully convinced its wisest members that the outside help you have been receiving is well deserved, as is the increase in the number of forces concerned.
So congratulations, because this increase in our forces of Light is due entirely to the hard work and the dedication of all of you, dear lightworkers of peace, love, and justice. You have managed to convince the finest minds of the local Universe that the timing for your Existential Upliftment, through your own merits, be advanced forward, which will more quickly sentence the fall of hegemony and control of the opposing forces of darkness upon you.
For the unstoppable advancing of the Light against the diminishing and regressive forces of Planet Earth! For our victory will be achieved after the combined efforts of you and us!
Peace, Love and Light
