What is the physical difference between a star and a planet?
Stars and planets are traditionally differentiated based on two properties:
(i) Whether or not they undergo nuclear reactions that burn hydrogen in their cores. Stars do this; planets don’t. In order to have high enough temperatures in the core to burn hydrogen, an object needs to have a mass of at least 75 or so times that of Jupiter. Anything more massive than that is automatically considered a star.
(ii) The way they form. Stars form when a cloud of gas, out in a nebula or other region of interstellar space, collapses under the influence of gravity. Planets, on the other hand, form when material in the disk around a pre-existing star begins to condense around rock/ice cores. You can have situations where the entire planet is almost completely rock/ice/water (such as the Earth), or situations where a large amount of gas is subsequently attracted to the rock/ice core (such as Jupiter, Saturn, etc.).
There is actually some ambiguity in the above definitions, mainly because of the existence of objects called “brown dwarfs”. Brown dwarfs are too small to burn hydrogen, so they can’t be considered stars, but most of them seem to form in the same way that stars do, often out on their own in a cloud of interstellar gas, so they can’t really be considered planets either. The question then becomes, where is the boundary between a planet and a brown dwarf? What if you have an object that is, say, thirty times the mass of Jupiter but is located near a star? Is it a planet or a brown dwarf? Astronomers don’t generally know the formation mechanism in that case, whether the object formed along with the star from condensing gas or whether it has a rock/ice core at its center like a planet.
In Ancient Egypt, Sirius was regarded as the most important star in the sky. In fact, it was astronomically the foundation of the Egyptians’ entire religious system. It was revered as Sothis and was associated with Isis, the mother goddess of Egyptian mythology. Isis is the female aspect of the trinity formed by herself, Osiris and their son Horus. Ancient Egyptians held Sirius in such a high regard that most of their deities were associated, in some way or another, with the star. Anubis, the dog-headed god of death, had an obvious connection with the dog star and Toth-Hermes, the great teacher of humanity, was also esoterically connected with the star.
The Egyptian calendar system was based on the heliacal rising of Sirius that occurred just before the annual flooding of the Nile during summer. The star’s celestial movement was also observed and revered by ancient Greeks, Sumerians, Babylonians and countless other civilizations. The star was therefore considered sacred and its apparition in the sky was accompanied with feasts and celebrations. The dog star heralded the coming of the hot and dry days of July and August, hence the popular term “the dog days of summer”.
Several occult researchers have claimed that the Great Pyramid of Giza was built in perfect alignment with the stars, especially Sirius. The light from these stars were said to be used in ceremonies of Egyptian Mysteries.
Star alignment with the Great Pyramid of Giza. Orion (associated with the god Osiris) is aligned with the King’s Chamber while Sirius (associated with the goddess Isis) is aligned with the Queen’s Chamber. A fascinating aspect of Sirius is the consistency of the symbolism and meanings attached to it. Several great civilizations have indeed associated Sirius with a dog-like figure and viewed the star as either the source or the destination of a mysterious force. In Chinese and Japanese astronomy, Sirius is known as the “star of the celestial wolf”. Several aboriginal tribes of North America referred to the star in canine terms: the Seri and Tohono O’odham tribes of the southwest describe the Sirius as a “dog that follows mountain sheep”, while the Blackfoot call it “Dog-face”. The Cherokee paired Sirius with Antares as a dog-star guardian of the “Path of Souls”. The Wolf (Skidi) tribe of Nebraska knew it as the “Wolf Star”, while other branches of knew it as the “Coyote Star”. Further north, the Alaskan Inuit of the Bering Strait called it “Moon Dog”.
I felt the need to go into some meditation and search for a few answers to questions I have been pondering on. I grabbed 3 of my Lapis Lazuli and 1 quartz pointer.
I Sat down in comfortable pose and put two of the lapis in my hip/lap area. I placed the quartz pointer in between my legs with a lapis piece in front of it (picture below)
I began Ujjayi method of breathing as a normally begin most of my meditations. I took time to cycle through each Chakra using the planetary system. After going through about 5 cycles I focused on breathe and the darkness of having my eyes closed. There are a few things I had on my mind the main thing that I will focus on here is visions/3rd eye activity. Randomly more memories of The Journey I went on came back to me. I totally forgot about the big white house/temple/structure that was at the end of the labyrinth. I feel like there was information inside of the structure. I also began to fly above the labyrinth because I did not want to be lost… moving on. For those who can relate and have similar experiences feel free to express your knowledge on what you have concluded. For those who are not familiar then just enjoy the read and one day you may be able to relate. Im sharing what I experience and learn in effort to help you on your path to inner-lightnment.
Lesson one: The Basics
So if you concentrate on the darkness (eyes closed) while rhythmic breathing, you may begin to see a light forming . To get an example of what this internal light looks like, look at a light bulb for 5 seconds then close your eyes. You will see a imprint of the bulb when you close your eyes. This is what the light looks like at first. Now continuing with the light bulb effect example in mind imagine if the light you see when you close your eyes begins to collect more light. This will appear as waves in a ocean coming onto the sand. The internal circle of light being the sand and the new waves being more light. The internal light is a circle so the waves appear to be forming into the circle of light. Its like drawing a circle in the sand and then using your hands to push the surrounding sand into the circle making it larger then continuing to do this over and over. This is the basic behavior or characteristics of what I believe to be pineal gland activity. I think identifying and becoming familiar with these sensations/signs will help people get a full easy understanding of the abilities dormant within.
L1: Yoga, Breathe awareness, Chakra cycles , Pineal Focus.
Lesson Two:Seeing is Believing
Ok so I wanted to understand how exactly I was able to perceive and experience places that I have not been to physically leading to wisdom that seems more cosmic than terrestrial. The answer came to me in a simple clear explanation that I will try to translate here. Ok imagine having a sphere able to go anywhere in the world. This sphere can feel/absorb light. The sphere has the ability to see light but does not have the missing piece to translate the light into mental images similar to the human eye balls.
Now lets add the pieces of the puzzle together. The sphere is your astral/energy body. The missing piece that can translate light into tangible mental images creating vision… is your pineal gland/third eye.
Have you heard of Astral projection?
L2: Vision Awareness, Experience, Understanding
I just broke down how to leave Earth and experience other planets/beings, now open your eye and go feel/see for yourself.
Lesson Three:Only observe, If you feel uncertain about what you see then do not go forward. The choice to interact and explore ultimately is yours. You may find there are protected places you will not be able to go to as I have learned.
“These places are only a thought away.”
Notes: I used Lapis Lazuli in assistance of Quartz because this combination brings me to a state of mind where clear, sharp, efficient, honest smart thinking happens.
Focusing or looking for the inner light helps the process of it revealing itself. The first time I experienced this my eyes were closed and it felt as if suddenly I had opened my eyes but my physical eyes were still closed. The feeling was very interesting and I understood what happened because I could feel it which led me to know. Through practice and meditation the familiarity of these sensations becomes a stepping stone to going deeper within.

“Amazing engineering feats in the realm of Saturn, the giant gas planet. Dr. Norman Bergrun’s work Ringmakers of Saturn is one to be read and pondered. Share with scientific friends, the amazing photos taken from NASA spacecraft offer evidence that there are giant space vehicles in Saturn space performing incredible engineering work on the rings of the giant gas planet. The book comes handsomely bound and is printed in Scotland by Pentland Press. This book, designed to be around for some time, belongs in your science library.”
Years of follow-on analysis of Ringmakers of Saturn has led to the conclusion that EMV’s (ElectroMagnetic Vehicle’s) role in the solar system is tremendously significant. Their ability to create powerful destructive forces has become an issue that global society must not delay to reckon with.
Ringmakers of Saturn, being an out-of-print product, has been a good investment for those who have bought new copies and sold them used at elevated prices. The highest offer for a used copy is in the neighbor- hood of $2600.00. Accordingly, a new-copy price has been established at $2995.00.
Solar breath meditation. This is a technique that I like to use when I want to align my 7 energy points(chakras). Each point corresponds with a planet.
Crown – Sun
Third Eye – Moon
Throat – Mercury
Heart – Venus
Solar Plexus – Mars
Sacral – Jupiter
Root – Saturn
Ok so first It helps to know the energetic properties of each planet which can be found here. I begin with Crown chakra and move down from the top then back up. On the exhale I will begin by saying to myself Sun (crown) and then focus my awareness to the corresponding section on my physical body. I will make it through each energy point on one out breath. On the inhale I will say to myself Saturn (root) and again focus my awareness to the part of my physical body then work my way up to repeat the cycle. You may begin to feel a strong vibration in each energy point you direct focus to. Once you have completed as many cycles you feel comfortable doing, breathe at a natural rhythm and bring your focus to become aware of each energy point. Once you focus on all of the energy points you may feel a sense of being in a energetic sphere. You have reached what I like to call cosmic mode. It feels like your in space bubble. I have seen some interesting visions while practicing this method of alignment. This works for me and is very effective bringing me to the cosmic bubble fairly quickly once I sit and focus. I hope this has given you some ideas, play and learn with your energy!
Solar energy has the potential to dramatically change the way the world gets its power. Enough solar energy falls on a 100-square-mile area of the southwestern United States to power the entire nation. It is still important, however, to understand the environmental impacts associated with producing power from renewable sources such as wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, and hydropower.
While solar is among the world’s cleanest forms of energy, plans to develop utility scale solar farms have raised concerns about potential environmental impacts.
One person’s beauty is another person’s eyesore. For some, solar panels evoke positive feelings, even when set in a natural landscape
Creating energy is a water intensive process. In the U.S., electricity production accounts for more than 40 percent of all daily freshwater withdrawals

Mushrooms were consumed by ancient Egyptian, Aztecs and Maya for centuries in religious ceremonies, used for healing, divination, and communion with the spirit world. Many species of mushroom can be found growing naturally in the wild today. Personally I have found mushrooms to be eye opening over the past 5 years. The effects psilocybin can be subtle but effective in opening the range of your perspective mentally as well as bringing attention to false desires . There will be more information on how to use magic mushrooms or other shamanistic tools to bridge the gap!
Be on the look out for the new Shaman section soon. I will be giving updates on personal experience and visual journeys.

The pineal gland was the last endocrine gland to have its function discovered. Its location deep in the brain seemed to indicate its importance. This combination led to its being a “mystery” gland with myth, superstition and even metaphysical theories surrounding its perceived function.
The pineal gland is occasionally associated with the third chakra (also called Ajna or the third eye chakra in yoga). It is believed by some to be a dormant organ that can be awakened to enable “telepathic” communication.
In the physical body the eye views objects upside down. It sends the image of what it observes to the brain which interprets the image and makes it appear right side-up to us.
But the human body has another physical eye whose function has long been recognized by humanity. It is called the ‘Third Eye’ which in reality is the Pineal Gland. It is long thought to have mystical powers. Many consider it the Spiritual Third Eye, our Inner Vision.
It is located in the geometric center of the brain. This correlates to the location of the Great Pyramid in the center of the physical planet.
The Pineal Gland is about the size of a pea, and is in the center of the brain in a tiny cave behind and above the pituitary gland which lies a little behind the root of the nose. It is located directly behind the eyes, attached to the third ventricle.
The true function of this mysterious gland has long been contemplated by philosophers and Spiritual Adepts. Ancient Greeks believed the pineal gland to be our connection to the Realms of Thought.
Shattuckiteis a strong psychic communication stone. It will assist with the development of psychic visions, intuition, mediumship, channeling, psychic knowing and automatic writing, all from a position of absolute truth.
This stone allows you to communicate better with the spirit world, as it heightens the vibration of your connection.
There is an interesting story to how I came into possession of this stone. I was in Miami for a few weeks enjoying myself. I decided to walk around and see if anything caught my eye for purchase. As I began to cross the street I had a clue to what I would experience in the immediate future. The thought ” You are going to find familiar energy but It wont be like your used to” So right after that thought crossed my mind I looked up and I see a crystal shop… Nice I thought. So I go inside and look around at the fairly large collection of stones. The crystal shops I usually go into are very relaxed and allow you to handle/inspect the crystals however you please. This shop was run a bit different by one lady who I assumed owned the shop. I grabbed a stone off of the shelf and began to hold it … soon after the owner of the shop was on my back asking if I wanted to purchase. I first asked If she herself own crystals and calmly explained how I would like to feel them before I buy. That was enough to keep her off of my back for 20 seconds. She continued pushing me to buy so I again repeated what was said earlier, Id like to touch and look at the crystals before I buy. She did not accept that as an answer and continued to press the issue of what if other customers come in, as we debate in this store very alone. At this point I simply said okay put the stone down and left. There was no point of me staying my mind couldn’t wrap itself around the idea of the owner forcing me to buy something of a spiritual nature. The whole day and night I thought on it. The next day it came to me that I should really go back and try again with the intention of teaching this lady what I thought could be a valuable lesson in patience. Clarity was my second agenda. The thought of someone else being in the store on my return came to mind and not to my surprise there was a new person in the store once I returned the following night. I walked in intentionally with a few Macy bags, just to give off the perspective that yes I do have money and spend. Maybe she thought I couldn’t afford the stones. Either way I walk in and the new young lady that was there was more than helpful showed me stones let me hold them, didnt mention buying anything once. So as I hold the angelite stone I feel the presence of the owner as well as see her in my peripheral vision. She walks up to me and says oh your back again, maybe you buy this time. We immediately begin the exchange of sharp aggressively toned comments to each other in the nature of Me -“You cant force anyone to buy things” … Her -“You touch touch touch buy you no buy” in her deep latin accent. I began even pleading with her saying why are you making it such a difficult experience for me I have bags of clothes I can careless about, I just want to buy a stone.” But there was a breakthrough… In a flash like moment I understood why there was conflict. I was used to a different treatment in other stores but that did not change the fact that this is her store and her policy is different. Once that settled in I said okay I will not touch any more. I followed my word but I surely stayed in the store for about an hour pointing at each and every stone asking for explanation before purchasing two Shattuckite stones. I found it effective. The same night I saw a shooting star while in deep breathing meditation holding the piece below.
