Vegan Star seeds-Welcome Home

Those who have Vega as their stellar origin are self-sustaining, autonomous, gallant and strong-minded. There is an external fluid energy and appearing of strength and capacity. Vegan Starseeds incline to be learned in a wide assortment of fields, they might be trivia "collectors" for knowledge about their fields of interest. They've an assortment of gifts and capacities, are very inventive and frequently have an ability to blend creative expression with mental expression. They may be artists, designers, inventors, architects or in modern times might work more intimately with creativity by novel or expanding technologies. Their techniques of working with technology will differ from most, as it is based more on "feel" than on intellectual discernment. They do well at starting projects, but to a lesser extent at finishing them. There might be object lessons to help Vegan Starseeds in acquiring self-control and self-will or they might surround themselves with other people who are supportive and will help in the culmination of projects and ideas.

Vegan Starseeds are travellers who look for diversity, challenge and knowing of the numerous questions they've within. They may get uninterested easily. They incline to take apart, doubt and question everything which they don't understand, doesn't meet their faith scheme or simply doesn't "feel" right. Though quite willing to learn, change and grow, Vegan Starseeds need understanding to occur on an inner level to allow opening within for change to occur. This understanding won't be of a practical, logical nature. It will be an inner comprehension that will be more a "feeling" that leads to "knowing" rather than a technical understanding.

Vegan Starseeds have a strong sense of responsibility, nurturing and caring. They could't find fulfillment in working with children, those who are ill or in need of care and support. From time to time however, they might be overly responsible for others, and might desire to remind themselves of the importance of teaching responsibility, as well as being prudent. They might need to work with building up a stronger sensation of feeling the integrity of other people, as they might find themselves capitalized on due to their affectionate nature. They might find other people attracted to their sympathising energy, and may be approached in many situations by other people wanting to share their own problems. It had better be noted that few Vegan Starseeds are themselves willing to share their own details with other people, unless trust is first established.

Vegan Starseeds have healing abilities, and might have an affinity for gems and stones. A lot of from Vega work in giving care to other people in the area of healthcare, either physical, intellectual, as instructors or in fields which permit freedom of original expression. They've a firm desire for time by themselves, seclusion, and exemption from limitations. It's crucial that they be shown admiration for what is done for other people. Those in personal relations with Vegan Starseeds may from time to time be in need of further care, and may feel moderately ignored, due to their many pursuits and areas of concentration. They may become so dedicated caring for other people, that they ignore their own needs and their own relationships.

Sirian Star seeds-Welcome Home

Those who have Sirius as their stellar origin are extremely centered, extremely driven and set on any path they're on at a specific time. It is extremely hard to alter the mind of someone from Sirius, but when they've become certain that a fresh "path" is more advantageous, they get completely centered on the new, and give up the old promptly. Sirian Starseeds have firm notions, ideals and personal integrity.

Those from Sirius make faithful, dependable friends, but require the aforementioned in return. They get hurt and disenchanted when these expectations are not matched. Sirian Starseeds don't share the internal personal self with other people easily, and may have trouble sharing emotions and conveying feelings and needs. To be fully admitted and intrusted as a close personal friend of a Sirian Starseed implies that you've been carefully sized up. Sirian Starseeds might have trouble in relationships and friendships when they demand to be treated in a particular way, but don't share their expectations with the other people affected. It's crucial to work with sharing expectations, ideals, conveying wants and hopes to head off being wounded and disenchanted. This often happens as a consequence of want of communicating or lack of common understanding and clearness in relationships.

Those from Sirius incline to be future orientated, and don't love centering on the past. They might turn defensive if coerced to center on the past by other people. This flows from to the fact that past pain and emotion is bound within, refused and pent-up instead of being coped with at the time of happening. Attributable to this there might be deep amounts of old emotion in need of being coped with and released. Sirian Starseeds don't enjoy face-offs or open expressions of hostility but if pressured into an controversy will defend themselves and their feelings ferociously. This is especially true if honor of themselves or beloveds is involved. One of the lessons many Sirian Starseeds have opted to work with in this life is the importance of giving up old pain, forgiving self and other people, and going on.

Sirians have a very unequalled and solid sense of wit, which often times is only seen once they're with those they confide and feel at ease with. Sirians may be regarded idealists by a few. This flows from to their active, intense inner life. This can induce forgetfulness and a propensity to not notice trivial third dimensional matters in the present. They might from time to time seem to be indifferent, or unobservant, but in actuality they're simply someplace else. They might not recognize that others are unsuspecting of their internal activity. Though they seem very serene, restrained and distant on the surface, there's a great deal of activity inside. As kids, Sirian Starseeds may often be thought to have learning handicaps or thought to have troubles with their attention span. This flows from to the attraction of the inner existence, which is often more fascinating than that which is learned in Earth schools. They do best in learning when visual techniques of instruction are utilized, and they're permitted hands on types of discovering with freedom to move around and research. These are children who profit greatly from unconventional schools, the are very bright but firm enough within to feel that if something doesn't interest them, they shouldn't be required to learn about it.

Those from Sirius have a rich link to the Earth and energies of nature. Many Sirian Starseeds have had many lives as Native Americans and preserve close ties and memories of those lives. They're extremely visual, both in their power to envision things which others don't, and in their manner of learning.

Pleiadean Star seeds-Welcome home

Those who have Pleiades as their planetary origin are sensitive, loving and kind. There is a deep, abiding desire for peace and happiness for all. If one from Pleiades were asked what do you want out of life? They would likely say, "to be happy." Pleiadeans have a pleasant smooth energy which others enjoy being near.

They are emotional and loving, but tend to repress much due to their desire to please others. They are sensitive and react quickly to criticism. Pleiadeans tend to sacrifice personal needs and wants while attempting to please others. This may cause inner resentment. Rather than expressing resentment or anger openly, Pleiadeans may instead use passive aggressive behavior in hopes that their feelings will be noticed and responded to without the need for discussion. They must learn to realize others whom they seek to please would usually prefer to hear their feelings and needs. Pleiadeans can become physically ill in situations where there is anger, open tension or arguments around them, as they absorb emotions of others in an unconscious effort to mediate and smooth situations. The tendency to repress their own emotions, and the emotions absorbed from others can form energy blockages if not released over a period of time. This can lead to eventual physical illness.

A large part of the learning experience for Pleiadeans is to learn to allow others to experience what they have chosen, and not become personally involved. They will learn to be aware of their desire to make others happy and realize that one can only be responsible for ones personal happiness and self development. They must learn to allow others to be responsible for themselves, their growth and learning situations. They must learn that they cannot decide when others are happy, or what others need to be happy, and instead focus on creating their own happiness. As true responsibility is accepted for self and personal happiness, they will flourish and the physical body will respond with radiance.

Pleiadeans must work to develop communication skills on a third dimensional level and also to develop self-esteem. It is important for them to reclaim personal power, learn to communicate freely and become strong within. At times, it may appear to others that Pleiadeans are overly reserved and distant. This is due to their tendency to criticize their thoughts to the point of not sharing them and the self esteem problems many Pleiadeans have. Often they feel that their thoughts are not "worth" sharing and must work in this area also.

Those from Pleiades may develop patterns of using various third dimensional pursuits as temporary escapes from reality, or false aids in building communication ability and confidence. This could be ventures into drugs or drinking, creating sexual or romantic dramas, or simply escaping into other realities through reading, television or movies.

Pleiadeans release through crying. Due to their tendency to repress emotions, this may build to a point where releasing must occur. This may result in crying which appears as an overreaction to current situations. Instead, it is a releasing of much more than the current situation. Due to the communication issues which are worked with, many Pleiadeans experience various types of releasing in the throat chakra area, such as crying. This could also be frequent physical problems or speech difficulty, such as hoarseness, coughing, or tightness in the throat chakra. This will no longer occur when confidence and free communication of emotions and needs are learned and used in daily life. These can be used as signs to look within at what is not being communicated that needs to be.

Pleiadeans are very strong on faith and trust. They have a strong sense of purpose from childhood, a feeling of knowing there is a God connection, purpose and plan, even in their darkest hour. There is an inner desire to seek spiritual answers and to find their connection to the God Force. As they begin to seek and learn, growth begins. As they begin to realize the God connection and to love themselves as the perfect beings that all are, many of the old feelings, emotions and self doubts fade.

Orion Star Seeds-Welcome home

Those who have Orion as their planetary origin have firm personalities, paragons and opinions. Orion Starseeds may be acknowledged by the numerous questions they ask! There's a solid drive to ascertain the causes and inner significances of all matters. They incline to examine persons and issues in their requirement to understand. This might be tormenting to those around them, as this could produce notions of being sized up. This is due to the propensity of many Orion Starseeds to function on a mental stratum, instead of a belief level. This isn't attributable to a deficiency of feeling, it's just the main manner of functioning for an Orion.

Orion Starseeds desire others to abide by their judgments and may debate to gain esteem and persuade other people of the validness of their beliefs. They must learn to counterbalance the crusade to understand, with sensitivity to the wants of other people. The matured Orion has discovered that in explaining their opinions and beliefs, having them recognized as legitimate and viewed by others is what they look for, and it's not essential to have other people be in accord.

Orion Starseeds have an inscrutable internal desire to know and might be disappointed with those who don't share this hunger. There's involvement in a wide diversity of areas. It will be apparent when talking with an Orion Starseed that either a field holds major concern for them, and they're very experienced, or there's no interest in the least and recognize almost nothing of that field. There's firm skepticism and trouble in taking on new notions without exhaustive grounds and validation. This flows from to their intellectual and rational focusing, and requirement to 'add up' matters logically before accepting them.

Orions incline to be faultfinding of other people, and of themselves. This is because Orion Starseeds demand and look for perfection. They've a sharp eye for particulars and note matters which others don't. They incline to call attention to those things to other people, if they find those are matters in need of care or rectification. This may be displeasing to those not used to to Orion energy, and might be construed as individual criticism. It's beneficial to recognize that Orions are extremely aware of equilibrium, and might feel physically disturbed or sick in states of affairs where there's unbalance. This produces their requirement to redress unbalance when it's perceived. It might be emotional instability that's perceived in other people, or in themselves, or outward physical asymmetry. Orion Starseeds require beauty and stable flowing of energy in their environment to feel their best on all levels.

In human relationships and in dealing with emotions, Orions react to emotions intellectually and might surprise others by their reactions. The drive to perceive is very much firmer than the emotional response. It's extremely significant for them to see the grounds behind a situation, to help in their ability to accept and understand. In an emotional situation, a characteristic Orion reaction is to ask questions, though the quieter Orion Starseed might do this inside. This doesn't mean they don't feel or care, just that they must look for discernment. Orions are often ill at ease with emotional states of affairs unless they know those involved well enough to feel free to ask the questions within. By honoring this need, communication can be built up in relationships with Orions Starseed. If their need to question, or understand emotion isn't allowed, they'll develop patterns of repressing emotions, or exploring them only on an inner level.

Those from Orion require privacy and time alone to recharge, learn and develop the flow within. They learn best by themselves or in little groups, and don't feel at ease in large classroom settings. There's a high energy level, which combined with the questioning nature, makes Orion Starseeds impatient of classroom learning, when they feel teaching isn't done well, or is not purposeful. Many Orions make superior teachers, ascribable to their ability to see many details, and "angles" of delivering facts, to make learning more absorbing for the student. Orion Starseeds relish making others laugh. There's a strong sense of humor and desire to tease and play. Others may observe that the switch from merriment to being critical can occur quickly.

There's substantial communicating with spirit, and psychic ability. As Orions develop on a spiritual pathway, they find their largest challenge to be that of acquiring higher levels of trust and faith. This flows from many facets of spirituality that have to be accepted merely without question. Orion Starseeds are profoundly implanted with the desire to call into question, seek proof, answers, and logical understanding before accepting beliefs. This can create difficulty and an inner conflict for a lot of Orions, as they learn to blend the abstract mind with the spiritual self. But, it's these same qualities which make Orion Starseeds important gatherers of data and information which can be shared out with other people.

Lyran Star seeds-Welcome home

Lyrans are alleged to be the forefathers of humankind. Erra is where they began their new civilisation in the year 228,000 B.C. They had to flee their native planets in the Lyra-Vega Star Systems which were intruded on by reptiloid entities from Alpha Draconis and broke away to the Pleiades, the Hyades, and to Vega which is also in Lyra.. They afterwards got known as Pleiadians.

The Lyrans are a race of humanoids that have been in existence long before the account of Earth began. We descend from many planets connected with the star system of Lyra. We are very humanlike in our appearance. You wouldn't be able to differentiate us from any other human if you were to pass one of us upon the street. As a matter of fact we are responsible for the seeding of your planet with the humanoid appearing being that is connected with Earth. We're possibly on the norm a bit lankier than most Earth humans and our skin isn't as dark, but those would be the sole differences 'tween us.

There's a lot of data out on that point that alleges we're now Pleiadians,however that's as a matter of fact not reliable. We'd be believed cousins to them in a fashion but we're not identical. We acted upon a good deal in alignment with the Pleiadians in seeding attempts not only on Earth, but numerous other planets in addition to. On that point we share a good deal in common with the Pleiadians. As a matter of fact many Lyrans have lived many lifespans as Pleiadians.

We live on a higher-level plane of being than earth is currently on at this time being as a matter of fact we as a race have transitioned to this greater plane with success in comparatively modern times. This is among the reasons we have an acute concern in Earth at this time since Earth's personal ascension process coming about currently. This as well is why there are a lot of Lyrans embodied on Earth presently so as to be of aid to the Earth and Her inhabitants in this time of changeover. We're here to help demonstrate the way, since of our experience. In a way we have a parental function to play with the masses of Earth and we're observing you develop and grow.

There are a few hints that would point to the reality that an individual is a Lyran living on Earth. These hints have to a greater extent to do with the personality than with the material as our morphogenic form is extremely alike with peoples of Earth.

The person will have a feeling of mission. They'll know at some level even though they may not be able to put their finger on that that they've a specific intent for being here. The person will be guided to the stars. This could take the form of being curious in astronomy for instance or reading science fiction or being attracted to science fiction films and the paranormal of all forms. Also the person will feel that there's an inherent truth in these books and films. It could feel like you have been a component of something like you're reading or watching. These people also recognize that the human is capable of so a great deal more, but recognizes that they've been lied to about the human potential.

The person will likewise have a feeling of inherent confidence. People will be given to gravitate to you and believe your ideas, assessments and judgements. The person might not be in a high position of authority, however nevertheless people acknowledge your authority. There will likewise now and again be issues with authority or rather an distaste of authority figures.

There's a certain measure of strictness and seriousness that accompanies this kind of person. They'll not "suffer fools gladly" as the saying goes. In that vein they'll not be the life of the party. They're more muted and restrained and tend to do more observing than verbalizing.

These kind are given to be loners. Not that they don't have family and friends, but they're at ease with themselves and don't always need everyone around for fulfillment.

Arcturian Star Seeds-Welcome Home

Those who have got Arcturus as their stellar ancestry have firm personalities, a rich inner intensity and a 'awareness' inside. On the surface, they seem solid, competent and potent. There's a sense from childhood of bearing a crucial aim in life, tho' there's not normally cognition of what that could be. There is a looking for for this purpose, which oftentimes extends to spiritual exploration. If this aim isn't discovered, there is perhaps an inner feeling of dissatisfaction or sadness without knowing of the causes of this.

Arcturian Starseeds are extremely ingenious. A lot of Arcturians are authors, artists, architects or exercise their talents to produce in in some manner. Arcturian Starseeds< are oftentimes proficient orators, have a common sense of timing and sense of humour, the "life of the party." They love making other people laugh. They're adoring and enjoy travelling. They might tend to get world-weary easily and look for fresh experiences to fend off tedium. If they do get "uninterested" they may make dramas---just to agitate things up or produce hullabaloo. This could show up in a propensity to make big problems out of little ones, to drag on situations, or embellish situations to get attention.

Arcturians could seem tough to get close to or aloof from time to time. They don't have a lot of close, intimate in person friends, but have a lot of "casual" friends. If an Arcturian Starseed accepts you as a close personal friend, and shares themselves with you on an inner level, know that you've been carefully considered before being "accepted." Arcturians draw in people: perfect strangers are drawn in to the Arcturian Starseed energy and magnetism. They're good advice givers, and their aura makes it appear to others that they're strong and accomplished. Others might be astounded to discover that Arcturians have troubles and feelings just like everybody else. There's often a all-encompassing circle of acquaintances that depend on their Arcturian Starseed friends for advice and counsel. Though willing to hear and contribute advice, Arcturians may be impatient of those not wishing to put forth required effort or are not genuinely "trying" to carry through what they look for. There's impatience with "complainers". Those who look for advice but are not disposed to use the advice they are afforded may lose their Arcturian Starseed mentor once this is realised.

Arcturians have a great deal of energy,both tangible and mental. They might leap from one place to some other or from one matter to a different one. They commonly don't like sitting still and being placid, but need to feel that they're achieving something. They tend to be passionate and upbeat. When their energy is concentrated and used well, there is little they can't carry out.When it's dispersed and without concentration, there will be numerous projects begun, with few finished.

In love relationships, Arcturian Starseeds need their own freedom. They feel ensnared in relationships that are limiting. They need time alone, time with friends, and to be capable of doing this without guilt feelings or explanations. There's need for knowing that freedom should apply to all affected-- the treatment they need for themselves should be expanded to other people. Arcturians are not at ease with expressing their deepest emotions, and tend to react to situations that stir deep emotions by creating diversions. Of their emotions, they are most comfortable with expressing anger, and humor. They may create arguments, begin story telling (Arcturian Starseeds are great story tellers!), try to create laughter, or have a sudden urge to 'do something' to avoid openly discussing their emotions.

Andromeda Star Seeds- Welcome home

Those with an Andromeda planetary beginning look for freedom. There's a mysterious inside hunger and drive that directs them to explore for this intuitive feeling of freedom. They might switch employment, housing or kinships in their hunt. At some point, they'll recognize that the freedom they are looking for, and the beliefs they frequently experience of being entrapped are not owed to their real conditions. The real freedom they seek comes in exclusively from inside. It is discovered just by building up self love, and the inside spiritual self. The matured Andromedan Starseed has recognised this, and acts upon this knowledge to make a world that permits these motivations to be honoured, while proceeding to develop in new areas.

Andromedans must figure out issues of self-assurance and love. These areas might be apparent in their demand for growth, or they could be cloaked. When self love and self-confidence are built up, the internal freedom and spiritual connection will be discovered inside...where it's ever been, if the trust and faith in self were present to permit it to be viewed. As this evolves, the connectedness between self and God gets firm. This permits past life rememberings to flow, and many old natural endowments begin to come alive to be practiced once more. A lot of Andromedan Starseeds find out they have a great deal to offer other people on a spiritual pathway and become acknowledged as instructors and healers.

Andromedans relish travelling and flourish on undergoing numerous types of realities. They love exhilaration, activity, and variety. They might have early wants to visit past life dwellings, shown as desires to visit certain places or interest in certain areas or time periods without realising why. They may savour driving quick, or flying in planes, as this induces subconscious memories of 'home'. Andromedan Starseeds tend to produce impressive learning scenarios for themselves, due to their propensity to be self-critical and not take themselves seriously. By learning to 'observe' smaller growth opportunities and lessons, they'll begin to head off making greater dramas.

The Andromedan tendency to be self-critical may lead them to expect others to be critical of them. They're often surprised at finding how well they're liked by others! Outwardly, many Andromedan Starseeds are confident, capable, and outgoing with well developed abilities to communicate with others. They are very good at holding back the inner fears, doubts and insecurities inside and demonstrating a very dissimilar 'face' to the outside world. They may be well suited to teaching, healthcare or careers which necessitate traveling. A few learn to blend the attraction to drama with publishing or acting, and convey themselves in those ways.

Andromedans have healing and communicating powers which are frequently experienced early on in childhood. These are frequently discounted or disheartened by household members, and must afterwards be recovered. Andromedan Starseeds are tender, protective people who have a lot of compassion and ability to place themselves in a different place and truly sympathize. There is a need to work with healing the physical, emotional, or psychic troubles of humanity.

Support The Truth

Dear friends,

The chilling intimidation campaign against WikiLeaks (when they have broken no laws) is an attack on freedom of the press and democracy. We urgently need a massive public outcry to stop the crackdown -- let's get to 1 million voices and take out full page ads in US newspapers this week!

The massive campaign of intimidation against WikiLeaks is sending a chill through free press advocates everywhere.

Legal experts say WikiLeaks has likely broken no laws. Yet top US politicians have called it a terrorist group and commentators have urged assassination of its staff. The organization has come under massive government and corporate attack, but WikiLeaks is only publishing information provided by a whistleblower. And it has partnered with the world's leading newspapers (NYT, Guardian, Spiegel etc) to carefully vet the information it publishes.

The massive extra-judicial intimidation of WikiLeaks is an attack on democracy. We urgently need a public outcry for freedom of the press and expression. Sign the petition to stop the crackdown and forward this email to everyone -- let's get to 1 million voices and take out full page ads in US newspapers this week!

WikiLeaks isn't acting alone -- it's partnered with the top newspapers in the world (New York Times, The Guardian, Der Spiegel, etc) to carefully review 250,000 US diplomatic cables and remove any information that it is irresponsible to publish. Only 800 cables have been published so far. Past WikiLeaks publications have exposed government-backed torture, the murder of innocent civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan, and corporate corruption.

The US government is currently pursuing all legal avenues to stop WikiLeaks from publishing more cables, but the laws of democracies protect freedom of the press. The US and other governments may not like the laws that protect our freedom of expression, but that's exactly why it's so important that we have them, and why only a democratic process can change them.

Reasonable people can disagree on whether WikiLeaks and the leading newspapers it's partnered with are releasing more information than the public should see. Whether the releases undermine diplomatic confidentiality and whether that's a good thing. Whether WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has the personal character of a hero or a villain. But none of this justifies a vicious campaign of intimidation to silence a legal media outlet by governments and corporations. Click below to join the call to stop the crackdown:

Ever wonder why the media so rarely gives the full story of what happens behind the scenes? This is why - because when they do, governments can be vicious in their response. And when that happens, it's up to the public to stand up for our democratic rights to a free press and freedom of expression. Never has there been a more vital time for us to do so.

With hope,
Ricken, Emma, Alex, Alice, Maria Paz and the rest of the Avaaz team.

Area 51-Fact or Fiction?

Area 51 is a military base, and a remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base. It is located in the southern portion of Nevada in the western United States, 83 miles (133 km) north-northwest of downtown Las Vegas. Situated at its center, on the southern shore of Groom Lake, is a large secretive military airfield. The base's primary purpose is to support development and testing of experimental aircraft and weapons systems.[1][2]

The base lies within the United States Air Force's vast Nevada Test and Training Range. Although the facilities at the range are managed by the 99th Air Base Wing at Nellis Air Force Base, the Groom facility appears to be run as an adjunct of the Air Force Flight Test Center (AFFTC) at Edwards Air Force Base in the Mojave Desert, around 186 miles (300 km) southwest of Groom, and as such the base is known as Air Force Flight Test Center (Detachment 3).[3][4]

Though the name Area 51 is used in official CIA documentation, other names used for the facility include Dreamland, Paradise Ranch, Home Base, Watertown Strip, Groom Lake, and most recently Homey Airport. The area is part of the Nellis Military Operations Area, and the restricted airspace around the field is referred to as (R-4808N), known by the military pilots in the area as "The Box" or "the Container".

The intense secrecy surrounding the base, the very existence of which the U.S. government barely acknowledges, has made it the frequent subject of conspiracy theories and a central component to unidentified flying object (UFO) folklore.
