If You Search on Wikipedia for the Indigo Children Be Warned

Wikipedia Warning!

An editorial Blog from Lee Carroll

Co-Author of “The Indigo Children,” “An Indigo Celebration,” and “The Indigo Children Ten Years Later.”

The interactive on-line encyclopedia called Wikipedia
is not representing the Indigo Children subject accurately.


The whole idea of on on-line encyclopedia is actually a very good one, for the concept is that a collective informational base would always be better than even the best expert. That’s what WIKIPEDIA is. It’s an idea that has merit, in that there are many people who know a whole lot about things that others wouldn’t know. The whole enclyclopedia is interactive, in that anyone can make changes to hopefully facilitate a greater knowledge-base for the planet. I celebrate the courage of those who have put this very popular website together.

Unfortunately the implementation of the editing process is filled with flaws. There is no way to verify the edits. In addition, if you are a knowledgeable person with good factual changes, others might have a bias that then erases the changes and creates an “editing war” of ideas. Some of these Wikipedia volunteers have nothing better to do than scan the pages of their bias interest, and constantly change things back to what they want them to say. They spend hours a day doing just that.

It would be great if Wikipedia had some kind of place where you could go to be validated as an expert, or an author, or to be checked out, but they don’t. The logistics of this would take thousands of hours and the cost would be prohibitive. So we get what we get, and Wikipedia becomes a place that almost all educators know is flawed, and most teachers never recommend it for students, and will not accept it as a source in educational study or student reports.

If you reference “The Indigo Children” on Wikipedia, you will get a page filled with misinformation and bias… the first being that they have placed the subject as “New Age” information. It isn’t, and never was.

The page goes on to give classic misinformation, the very thing we placed on the back cover of our last book as a teaser to help people understand what Indigo Children really are, and are not:

“The Indigo Children? Oh yeah… I know about them!
They’re those special kids who do psychic things and who have dark blue auras, right?”

 

Wikipedia says they are… you guessed it… psychic New Age kids with dark blue auras… the very misinformation that we have been trying to correct in mass media for a decade.

The Indigo Children are a main-stream issue. They were named by a woman (Nancy Tappe) who is a synesthete (one who has synethesia), and not by a psychic who saw an aura. In fact, auras have nothing whatsoever to do with Indigo Children. We believe these children are the beginning of a new consciousness, an actual change in Human nature, and many around the world are also seeing it. Educators, day-care workers, and parents are all stepping up to the plate to become advocates of this phenomenon. In the last 10 years, the Indigo Books have sold almost one million copies in 24 languages… humanity is obviously relating to this issue in very large numbers.

ADD and ADHT continue to rage and grow in an exponential way, indicating even to the medical community that “something is different.” But truly, there is no science behind it, and it’s all experiential. We know that, but there is so much real life evidence that we also believe that we are seeing a shift in Human nature that is very real.

When I tried to change the Wikipedia page, I was gentle. I only changed the aura part, didn’t touch the biased criticism, and didn’t change the part where they said it was very commercial, and very New Age. I wanted to… (big pharma is where the real commerciality is… with Ritalin) but that would add bias. I also added our last book to the references. So it was a mild, factual edit, given by the author (me) who introduced Nancy Tappe to the earth, and championed the term Indigo Children.

My changes were rejected, not once but three times. Even the new Indigo book listing was removed (like it doesn’t exist?) The second time, I gave my references, asked them to email the publisher Hay House (for verification that I was trying to change the page), giving them the URL of the official Indigo web site, and asking them to even contact this very website and get validation from those listed on the site as contacts. Even so, the page kept being reverted. They were not interested in the facts and obviously didn’t want to do the checking.

So therefore this warning:

Wikipedia is not a fair representation of the Indigo Children subject, and has volunteers who are biased and will not even allow for gentle editing from the author, to create factual informational updates. Based on our experience we feel it should therefore not be used as a source for anything meaningful. There are too many biased hands in the pot of editing, and the information is therefore suspect.

 

This is sad for the Indigo Children subject, since it keeps many from looking at it and helping the children who obviously could care less about an “editing war.” They only know they are different, and are looking for guidance. Again, our goal is not to sell you a book, but rather to help educate those who are dealing with children of new consciounsess.

Tell your friends. Perhaps there is some Wikipedia wizard out there who can actually change the page to be accurate, and who won’t get buried under the flow of those who don’t want it changed? You never know.

Thank you!

The Nine Principles of the Goddess

il_fullxfull_238700848

 

The Nine Principles of the Goddess

1. I acknowledge that there is one Goddess in essence, Creatrix of all existences; Her forms are infinite, She manifests Herself in our love, and we are all Her lovers.

2. Treat all beings with reciprocity, for the Goddess lives in them as well as in us.

3. Tolerate other religions and do not compel others to join the circle of the Goddess: the Goddess will draw those to Her who are ready and hear Her call.

4. Worship Her by restoring balance to Her planet.

5. Eat mostly grains, vegetables and fruits, so that there will be enough food for all; when you eat thank the Goddess, the provider of all energy. It is not forbidden to eat animal flesh in moderation, but when you do so you must thank the animal that you eat as well.

6. In the circle of the Goddess create consensus while respecting diversity of opinion. On the path of the Goddess there are many paths.

7. In your home create a sacred space for the Goddess to please Her. Meditate on the Goddess three times a day, at rising, at noon and at sundown.

8. Sexuality is Her sacrament; enjoy this gift and bless those who you share it with love and affection. Remember that overcoming jealousy is the cause of cessation of the cycle of rebirth.

9. Announce the religion of the Goddess to the world through good works, honest words and selfless acts of beauty and love.

To set out on the path of the Goddess, you need only recite the first principle three times, and say three times ‘blessed be’. The Goddess will enter your heart and you will feel her love, and when that happens you are in the circle of the Goddess.

W is for Watchtowers

Watchtowers

In Wicca, Guardians known as Watchtowers are called. These guardians are held hostage in each of the four corners or directions of the circle: East, South, West and North. They are set there to guard and protect the circle. This calling of the Watchtowers usually takes place during what is known in Wicca as “Calling the Quarters.”

Traditional Witchcraft does not call the Watchtowers, it does however, call Guardians. These Guardians are often called Spirits with whom a person feels comfortable with and has had a relationship with. Guadians can be our Ancestors, a Spirit Guide or other Spiritual Entity with which the you are familiar with.

 

 

Astral projection

Astral projection

 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Astral projection (or astral travel) is an interpretation of out-of-body experience (OBE) that assumes the existence of an “astral body” separate from the physical body and capable of traveling outside it. Astral projection or travel denotes the astral body leaving the physical body to travel in the astral plane.

The idea of astral travel is rooted in common worldwide religious accounts of the afterlife in which the consciousness’ or soul’s journey or “ascent” is described in such terms as “an… out-of body experience, wherein the spiritual traveller leaves the physical body and travels in his/her subtle body (or dreambody or astral body) into ‘higher’ realms.” It is therefore associated with near death experiences and is also frequently reported as spontaneously experienced in association with sleep and dreams, illness, surgical operations, drug experiences, sleep paralysis and forms of meditation.

It is sometimes attempted out of curiosity, or may be believed to be necessary to, or the result of, some forms of spiritual practice. It may involve “travel to higher realms” called astral planes but is commonly used to describe any sensation of being “out of the body in the everyday world, even seeing one’s body from outside or above. It may be reported in the form of an apparitional experience, a supposed encounter with a doppelgänger, some living person also seen somewhere else at the same time.

Through the 1960s and 1970s, surveys reported percentages ranging from 8 percent to as many as 50 percent (in certain groups) of respondents who state they had such an experience. The subjective nature of the experience permits explanations that do not rely on the existence of an “astral” body and plane. There is little beyond anecdotal evidence to support the idea that people can actually “leave the body”.

“Astral” and “etheric”

The expression “astral projection” came to be used in two different ways. For the Golden Dawn and some Theosophists it retained the classical and medieval philosophers’ meaning of journeying to other worlds, heavens, hells, the astrological spheres and other imaginable landscapes, but outside these circles the term was increasingly applied to non-physical travel around the physical world.

Though this usage continues to be widespread, the term, “etheric travel”, used by some later Theosophists, offers a useful distinction. Some experiments say they visit different times and/or places: “etheric”, then, is used to represent the sense of being “out of the body” in the physical world, whereas “astral” may connote some alteration in time-perception. Robert Monroe describes the former type of projection as “Locale I” or the “Here-Now”, involving people and places that actually exist: Robert Bruce calls it the “Real Time Zone” (RTZ) and describes it as the non-physical dimension-level closest to the physical. This etheric body is usually, though not always, invisible but is often perceived by the experiment as connected to the physical body during separation by a “silver cord”. Some link “falling” dreams with projection.

According to Max Heindel, the etheric “double” serves as a medium between the astral and physical realms. In his system the ether, also called prana, is the “vital force” that empowers the physical forms to change. From his descriptions it can be inferred that, to him, when one views the physical during an out-of-body experience, one is not technically “in” the astral realm at all.

Other experients may describe a domain that has no parallel to any known physical setting. Environments may be populated or unpopulated, artificial, natural or abstract, and the experience may be beatific, horrific or neutral. A common Theosophical belief is that one may access a compendium of mystical knowledge called the Akashic records. In many accounts the experiencer correlates the astral world with the world of dreams. Some even report seeing other dreamers enacting dream scenarios unaware of their wider environment.

The astral environment may also be divided into levels or sub-planes by theorists, but there are many different views in various traditions concerning the overall structure of the astral planes: they may include heavens and hells and other after-death spheres, transcendent environments or other less-easily characterized states.

Your Animal Spirit forAugust 29: The Black Swan

Your Animal Spirit for Today
August 29, 2012

Black Swan

Wherever the Black Swan appears in your reading you can expect unexpected and unpredictable events to majorly impact your life in that aspect.  Beyond noting that the influences Black Swan indicates will be extraordinarily large in scope, it may be difficult to tell if the fortune it foretells will be good or bad.  Black Swan affected events may begin so subtly that they are very difficult to identify.  When trying to discover what the Black Swan portends for you, look for events that do not occur in your life regularly or at all.

Today’s Tarot Card for August 20 isThe Hanged Man

The Hanged Man

This Tarot Deck: Lord of the Rings

General Meaning: Traditionally, the card known as the Hanged Man usually indicates a lack of ability to help oneself through independent action. This energy is arrested and awaiting judgment. With this card, there is no avenue for the will to regain control until the situation has passed.

This represents a good time to be philosophical, to study and meditate upon the position you find yourself in, and form resolutions for the moment you become free again. Only those who possess wisdom, patience and optimism will be able to see through limitations, including possible humiliation, to grasp the inspiring lesson one can gain from such an experience.
