Sunday I posting this picture with the blog below about Fight MH17.

Tuesday I posted an image from Spaceweather about Sundogs.

Wednesday Spaceweather linked that image to a NASA story about the
2nd anniversary of the July 2012 Solar Superstorm.

Wednesday I was looking for a photo and story about the
White Flag and the Brooklyn Bridge and this popped up first.

  American Flags Bleached White Appear Atop Brooklyn Bridge   NBC - July 23, 2014

Why do images with yellow backgrounds find me this week? I never chose yellow as a background but Z was adamant about these pictures all of which I found immediately.

This summer I have been drawn to wear yellow more than ever before though the fashion experts on the talk shows say orange the color for this summer. The two colors are linked.

Yellow is the color most associated with optimism. As a chakra, it connects with the solar plexus or intellect. There is also an association with China. Symbolism of Yellow

The image of the girl in the bleachers - who is supposed to be me watching souls falling - has the same grids energies as the NBC picture of the white flag on the Brooklyn Bridge.

One could second-guess this and say something that's going to happen with the sun is going to bring freedom to the souls. Doesn't feel right but you never know. A CME could take us out but I see a quick ending. CME's take time to get here.

Just about everything that's important to us is affected by the sun. We still keep an eye on solar flare activity as it affects Earth's magnetics and thus human behavior, communications and more. The sun moved into Leo yesterday - a fiery sign ruled by the Sun.

We all know the symbolism of the white flag - surrender. Someone was planting a message on both arches of the bridge. The symbolism of the bridge is consciousness moving from one side to another.

Several people I know, who work in the area and saw the flags, said it reminded them of 9/11 accompanied by the statement, "Surrender or be attacked again." I don't see that on US soil.

I've driven over several bridges lately (NY, NJ, CT) and noted spot checks for the first time since 9/11 especially with unmarked vans. With war, revolution, and chaos throughout the planet we watch and wait to see what's next.

Happy Birthday to the Crystalinks readers born in Leo.

Leo is a fixed fire sign ruled by the Sun.

Above is a handsome lion.

He fell in love with a powerful lioness.

Their combined consciousness create endless realities.

Cave with Aurora Skylight   NASA - July 22, 2014

Yes, but have you ever seen aurora from a cave? To capture this fascinating juxtaposition between below and above, astrophotographer Bjargmundsson spent much of a night alone in the kilometer-long Raufarholshellir lava cave in Iceland during late March. There, he took separate images of three parts of the cave using a strobe for illumination. He also took a deep image of the sky to capture faint aurora, and digitally combined the four images later. The 4600-year old lava tube has several skylights under which stone rubble and snow have accumulated. The person standing on each mound - it's the artist.


"Walk" to the end of the pier.

Close your eyes.

Hold the afterimage in your thoughts.

What do you see?

Quote from last week's episode of "Perception"

You think of your life as a story. MRI studies show us that following a story - a narrative with a beginning, middle, and end - causes our brains to release cortisol and oxytocin. These chemicals give us the unique human ability to connect with someone - even a total stranger - and empathize. Stories are what we use to bring meaning to our lives.

Now imagine, for a moment, that we live without the understanding that our story must eventually end. What if our lives were as infinite as the universe, if the ticking clock never stopped. What would our story be then? Would we still love or care? Would those tiny fleeting moments that mean everything - mean anything at all?

It's all about perception ....

Light Bending

Today the window I blogged about early last week - from July 17-21 - closes. It's certainly has been a bumpy ride for many people - including MH17 - creating a whole new set of dramas. This particular grid seems to have made a sharp 90° left turn. To me, when white light is bent at a 90° angle things disappear.

Light bending may refer to:

Midnight Sundogs - Spaceweather.com - July 22, 2014

Some of us have seen the midnight sun. Even more have witnessed sundogs. But have many people have seen a mashup of the two--the elusive midnight sundog? On July 21-22, Stine Bratteberg photographed the combo from Bleik, And¿ya, Norway: Sundogs, the rainbow-colored splashes of light on either side of the sun, are caused by sunlight striking ice crystals in the air. Plate-shaped crystals flutter down from the sky like leaves falling from trees. Aerodynamic forces align their flat sides parallel to the ground, and when sunlight hits a patch of well-aligned crystals at the right distance from the sun, voila! - a sundog. Bratteberg's photo also captured a faint midnight sun halo and a midnight upper tangent arc. You can see a lot of midnight atmospheric optics from the Arctic Circle. But not for much longer. As northern summer comes to an end, the midnight sun will fade and auroras will chase the sundogs into the darkening Arctic night.


Humans love to speculate on events in the world - now made easier with social media. I've been down this road too many times and plan to sit this one out ... just sitting in the bleachers watching the hologram implode. Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was a scheduled international passenger flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur that crashed on 17 July 2014 in the Ukraine.

Things to believe about M17:
Coverups are multiplying.
Love and light, metaphysical beliefs, or mythological gods, will not change anything.
It was meant to happen, but you know that.
