The Salem Witch Trials

In January 1692, the nine year old daughter of the village minister Samuel Parris, Elizabeth, began having fits, including violent contortions and uncontrollable outbursts of screaming. So did his eleven year old niece Abigail Williams. After a local doctor, William Griggs, diagnosed bewitchment, other young girls in the community began to exhibit similar symptoms.

Because of these outbursts more than 200 people were accused of witchcraft. Thirty were found guilty, nineteen of whom were executed by hanging by May 1693.

Most of those executed were from the poor and lower class side of the village. Those who were socially odd or awkward were specifically targeted.

When I wanted to Remote View this event several years ago I decided to start with the two little girls from which all this trouble sprang from. In many ways I would love to tell you that the devil had taken possession of them and caused them to behave in such a manner. But I can’t.

I took a look at each of the two girls both Elizabeth and Abigail on separate occasions. Unfortunately these two little girls raised in such a strict religious environment were motivated entirely from boredom and vindictiveness. This malevolence started the hysteria which led to the 200 accusations of witchcraft. At no time did these little girls do anything to stop this.

The devil does exist. But he, nor any of his henchmen, had anything to do with what happened in Salem Village. No, this was entirely the responsibility of human beings.

And while many people might look at these two little girls with sympathy, I do not. They spitefully perpetuated this insanity with constant lies, dramatic acts, and manipulation. And if that is not epitomize evil itself, I do not know what does.

Just don’t blame the devil for this one.

The Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic

The Lord’s Prayer…translated from Aramaic directly into Englishrather than from Aramaic to Greek to Latin to English.

O cosmic Birther of all radiance and vibration, soften the ground of our being and carve out a space within us where your Presence can abide.

Fill us with your creativity so that we may be empowered to bear the fruit of your mission.

Let each of our actions bear fruit in accordance with our desire. Endow us with the wisdom to produce and share what each being needs to grow and flourish.

Untie the tangled threads of destiny that bind us, as we release others from the entanglement of past mistakes.

Do not let us be seduced by that which would divert us from our true purpose, but illuminate the opportunities of the present moment.

For you are the ground and the fruitful vision, the birth, power, and fulfillment, as all is gathered and made whole once again.

And So It Is!

The Miracle of the Sun

“All you have to say now is, ‘I made everything up.'”

Do you know how many times I heard that as a child? Too many to count.

I viewed the Miracle of the Suns years ago. And it happened just the way it was reported. I did not view any of the other events, only the Sun.

Instead of seeing this as a division between faiths, maybe we should look at this as the Divine Intelligence that made us, speaks to different people, at different times in different ways?
