Elongated Skulls, Synchronicities, Everywhere Flowers!

A month or so ago I did something I don’t normally do. I laid a book down that I had not finished. It was on The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life, By Drunvalo Melchizedek, the Flower of Life, which now keeps showing up in my life. A pair of earrings I bought a couple of years ago, I now realize, have the Flower of Life pattern in them.

Also a crystal singing bowl I bought in June this year. A woman who gave me an interesting session, "Placed the Flower of Life on the wall of my Vault." (Neelam Minocha, mentioned in the Niagara Falls blog.)

I put the book down because I didn’t like the author’s attitude and, if I recall, he gave himself that name, hmm…, whatever. It seemed too Chicken Little, for my, "It's all good" optimism. It had been written quite a few years prior to 2012, you’ll recall, when the world was supposed to end according to the Mayan Calendar and prophesies.

Well, here we are, right? To the author’s credit, (more or less,) I’ve read many unrelated stories of many unrelated individuals, describing unplanned major life shifts, divorces, things that came into their lives in 2012, that for one reason or another, raised their consciousness to a higher state, created chaos before coherency and left them more open for possibilities other than the expected. So, perhaps, it was a death of an old consciousness for so many, that it was significant in an energetic way, rather than the destructive and fearful apocalypse the media would love to report on. So, I quit reading. A friend from my meditation group encouraged me to keep reading the book.

Reluctantly, I read a couple other books before picking it up again. He was talking about the ancient Egyptians, the elongated skulls and the order of the day to start depicting life as they actually saw it in their art, rather than the stiff symbolic style they had been creating in sculptures and pictures. So, they did. Nefertiti and King Tut had elongated skulls. All those with elongated skulls in ancient Egypt were very tall, with long necks and long tapered arms and legs that formed very skinny limbs. They looked physically different from the rest of the people depicted in the same scene. With all of the still mysterious accomplishments of the ancient Egyptians, his analogy was that they had an uncanny resemblance to the pictures of the large, elongated heads we see so often depicting aliens. All I can muster is, “O.K., interesting.” I put the book down again. I needed a break.
