Photography: Honey Bees

It’s now time to take photographs for next year’s “Divine in Nature: with Quotes from Edgar Cayce” calendar. I have just had the most amazing fun taking photographs of honey bees. The tiny creatures are so delightful and pretty in their velvet vests, and so busy and focused on their business.  

Since a number of the psychic readings given by the “sleeping prophet” on seeing the divine in nature refer to bees, I thought it’d be a good idea to take pictures of them.

Well, I had no idea the little critters could fly so fast! It’s easy to take their picture while they’re buzzing around in the flower collecting honey. But, as soon as they catapult out of the flower, they blast out as if they’ve been shot by a cannon. My auto-focus digital camera can’t focus in time.

Furthermore, I wanted a picture of them flying with their legs hanging down. Guess what? They often fly with their legs up imitating a torpedo.

When I finally did get a relatively in-focus image of a bee flying with legs hanging down, its wings were whirring so rapidly that the wings didn’t even register in the picture. And, the little fuzzy buzzer almost flew out of the frame–too busy to cooperate. They do not pose well.p>

Here’s two only-slightly out-of-focus pictures of the amazing creatures:

The wings move so
fast they don’t register

Newsweek Article Says 20% of U.S. Population Believes in Reincarnation

An article in the August 20 / August 27, 2007 issue of Newsweek Magazine refers to a 2005 Gallup Poll finding that 20% of all U.S. adults believe in Reincarnation.

Furthermore, it says that a recent survey by a Christian nonprofit research company has revealed that a surprising 25% of U.S. Christians believe in reincarnation and that 10% of born-again Christians find reincarnation their preferred end-of-life scenario.

I find this a welcome surprise because I didn’t expect born-again Christians to believe in reincarnation. New Age Christians or non-denominational worshipers–Yes–but not born-agains.

Edgar Cayce on Soul Mates and Twin Souls

Interestingly, Edgar Cayce describes one twin soul couple as being the same soul as far as the earth is concerned.

Although your twin soul is also your soul mate, you have many soul mates but only one twin soul.

Since twin souls are basically the same soul in two bodies, some people believe,  that one twin must be male and the other female. However, I don’t believe this must necessarily be so.

Since I am a female in this life and remember a lifetime in which I was male, it makes sense that there may be lifetimes in which twin souls incarnate as the same gender and in other lifetimes as opposite genders.

The Golden Ones: From Atlantis to a New World

Today I was doing keyword searches and, to my delight, I saw that more people than I expected are doing internet searches specifically for my first book, The Golden Ones.

That made me feel so good

Who are the Golden Ones? They are people who, during Atlantean times, chose to reincarnate now to help during the difficult times they knew so long ago that we would be going through now–very similar to Atlantis in its technological heyday.

Mother Mary Brings Peace to a Town in Egypt

Blessed: A Quest for Atlantis in Egypt Leads to Apparitions of the Virgin Mary, a book about:

Few Westerners know that an apparition of the Virgin Mary appeared in Egypt in the autumn of the year 2000.

Mary manifested in Assiut, a town out-of-bounds to all foreigners because of 25 years of fundamentalist Islamic terrorism

After she began to appear in the town, the terrorism stopped. Assiut knew peace.

In her appearances, Mary says she comes to bring peace.

The Blessed Virgin Mary

I’m pleased to say that I’ve just finished the first draft of the new Blessed.

When I wrote the first Blessed, which was published in 2005, I left a lot unsaid about my ideas on the relationship between the Virgin Mary and the Atlantean serpent.

It writing this new, updated, version, not only have I revealed my ideas about Mary’s connection with Atlantis and specifically the powerful transportation serpents of Atlantis, but also, while I was writing it, many more insights came to the fore.

I’m really happy with the way the new book has come together. It builds on my exploration of evidence of Atlantis in ancient ruins–this time in ancient Egyptian ruins as well as the ancient Mayan ruins–and also reveals which serpent’s head Mary crushes.

Clue: It has something to do with Atlantis (as I’m sure you’ve guessed).

Next, I have to decide whether the new, updated, revised version should have the same title or a different one.

Bright skies and fresh breezes,

Carol Chapman
