In early to mid August I had a dream in which I was being shown the map of the US. Virginia was highlighted. I was speaking to someone else and told them it was unfortunate for those living in that state, although there was no great feeling of doom. It appeared obvious that a disaster of some magnitude would take place here at any rate. A week or two later Virginia experienced its largest earthquake in 114 years. Luckily no one was hurt. But does it portend of more serious conditions to come? There is a documentary portraying a mega-tsnumi type event that could occur and hit the east coast if, for instance, Cumbre Vieja erupted in The Canary Islands causing a landslide.
It was late June or so. I was sleeping one night and someone, or some thing, came to me in a dream. Or perhaps I was merely awake inside an expanse of quasi-dreamland? It felt like outer space. I believe we are most psychically open when we are asleep. This "spirit entity", who seemed like it might be of some higher consciousness, had but few words. It only said "watch next for the 10th star".
But what was the 10th star, I wondered. Is it the "so-called tenth planet, Planet X? Or was it a star that would represent the tenth body in, around, or entering the solar system? I began looking up possibilities on the internet. I was already somewhat versed in Astronomy, having taken some college courses and flirting with the idea of a degree in the field (really ever since my first telescope at age 9). I speculated that it could be the 10th furthest star from our solar system. But should it include the Sun or not include the Sun? I speculated that it could be the 10th brightest star in magnitude. Betelgeuse is the 10th brightest star to us here on Earth. It is a red giant in the constellation of Orion. There has been some discussion in more recent times about this immense star on the internet: it is eventually due to explode/go Supernova, some say within a couple of thousand years due to its age, if it has not done so already. When it does it will take 400-600 years for the light to travel this way. Many scientists believe that the star is too distant to affect us here on Earth in the event of a supernova.
Saiph is another interesting member of the Orion constellation. It is the tenth star listed in the constellation and makes up the leg of Orion. Saiph al jabbar literally means "sword of the giant". It is another star in Orion - a blue giant - that is destined to go supernova. It is approximated to be over 700 light years from Earth. Though it does not look brighter than Betelgeuse, with a surface temperature of some 46,000 degrees F, it actually gives off more energy in the UV spectrum.
Interestingly, a group, supposedly channeling from the sixth dimension through a Ouija board, was told that a star would go supernova and they gave a clue that this star makes up the foot of Orion. Orion of course has two feet. One is Rigel and the other is Saiph.
It was May of 2010. The news broke reports of yet another environmental disaster. Though severely downplayed from beginning to end, in the initial phases - a time span of some weeks - many officials came out to assure us the leak was at the level of only 1,000 barrels a day (Fukushima, anyone?). I had a dream toward the early part of this disaster. At the time I knew few details, and was not aware of the severity.
The dream took place on the coast. I was walking down a sort of boardwalk or strand next to the water. I recognized energy analyst/activist Matthew Simmons walk by. Just as soon as I had time to notice him and giant tanker or barge slammed into the coast, taking him out and killing him instantly. I had the impression after this terrible death that either it would appear intentional and was then left wondering whether it was intentional or not. Further into the dream, I find myself amongst civilians who are being "stiff-armed" by the authorities, only the authorities are not exactly the police. Everything is being run by a criminal racket. Thugs are actually chasing individuals around with clubs. Each time I am barely able to escape and swerve through the middle of the chaos. Next I find myself captured aboard a passenger/pontoon boat. All the passengers are being held captive, including myself. I walk up to a man in charge, one of the higher up thugs on board and tell him that we are trapped in the bay and the only chance to get out is for me to fly away (astrally, of course) to get help and then return. The man in charge concedes and the dream ends.
I had read Twilight in the Desert by Matthew Simmons 4 or 5 years earlier (along with other authors on the topic), due to my interest in Peak Oil. Not long after the dream, Simmons had in fact just started appearing in the media on MSN and other places. He was the most vocal and harshest critics of BP of those who had some expert background in oil and gas. There were times when I wondered secretly if he would not "accidentally die" precisely because of his outspokenness. It may have appeared that he was giving in to speculation and conjecture in some of his comments, but he was right to declare how criminally they had acted and did well to highlight just how much was covered up. After many ensuing weeks, I had read on the internet that Matthew Simmons died (note: I had made several comments on-line regarding the dream before his death, on his MSN videos on Youtube, etc). According to the coroner's report the next day, it was concluded that he died from accidental drowning with heart disease as a contributing factor. Was it an accidental death or were there more nefarious elements at work here? We will probably never know. One thing is for sure, the whole spill appears to have been swept under the rug and one year later and most everyone has all but forgotten about America's worst ecological disaster in history.
