Frodo sees the Etheric Double of Arwen

Frodo struggles to maintain consciousness after his battle with the Witch King on Weathertop, as Arwen approaches

A silver-gold 'atmosphere' is often perceived as part of the "silver quickness" attributed to a form composed of semi-firm etheric energy. Cinema, cgi, and photography buffs try to capture subtle power on film - especially with the negative-positive technique. The medium was gradually developed, based on optical study, and perception of colour, texture, and form. 'Photography' comes from two Greek works: photos meaning 'light,' and graphein meaning 'to write.' Photography means, "to write with light."


Stress reduction via the etheric double is a long-standing alternative therapy found in traditional tomes of [ancient] philosophers. The etheric double is composed of subtle energy bonded with the physical temple. Both human forms interact during the incarnation much as a plant ‘subtle body’ endures in a symbiotic relationship with its ‘solid’ physical form. When the incarnation is over the etheric double remains with the physical form, in part to protect it from desecration after burial.

The etheric body has a long and colourful history. It is frequently confused with ‘the shell’ and other parts of the human aura that vibrate at a very quick rate, however, it tends to extend one to three inches outside the physical anatomy, depending on anything from a swim in the pool to an eight-course meal – soup to nuts or the zeitgeist.

The ‘physical double’ is one of three parts of an aura. All three portions of the human aura vibrate at faster rates than the ‘solid’ physical model. Higher octave energies associated with subtle colour [inner eye] and subtle sound [inner ear] are filtered by aura insulation as each influence from the environment enters the human vessel. These full spectrums, taken into the system by the etheric body, are not all recognized by the computer brain because physical sensory capabilities operate with limited range. Most of the time, the waking conscious mind is unaware of the care and maintenance duties performed by the etheric double, that is a complete record of everything that has made an impression on the "solid" anatomy during an entire lifetime.

Just as the technician can set the computer to render the presence of millions of colours not visible to the physical eye, so the etheric double may recognize and absorb a universe full of energies/influences the computer mind fails to know about and monitor. We can measure the ‘after the fact’ results, but not the process of absorption while in progress. There will be a point in time science will attempt time-lapse photography that can record the absorption process of external energy ready to pass through the aura filters, and as being digested within the solid physical model. For the moment, science takes the process on faith and does not appear to be interested in the mechanics involved in assimilation of external rays, sound, radio, tv, x-rays - all type of vibrations linked to technical appliances and toys, etc. Additional notes about the etheric blueprint of the physical anatomy life span and experiences here.

When "things" deviate from our best laid plans we may lose control over our own agenda and what transpires in the world around us. If the descent devolves as "low" as the first heaven, with death as the only option [see Kafka], we encounter those not alive or dead, as in The Lord of the Rings, right, The Nazgul - like the Army of the Dead - not alive, and not dead, also the Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl Blacksmith Will Turner teams up with swash-buckler pirate Captain Jack Sparrow to save his love Elizabeth from Jack's former pirate allies, now undead because of an ancient curse on their stolen gold.

Déjà Vu
Director: Tony Scott
Stars: Denzel Washington, Paula Patton, Val Kilmer, and Jim Caviezel

Questions about government over-reach and legal extent/intrusion into private lives of civilians notwithstanding, this story could be overshadowed by the very possibility of an experimental FBI surveillance unit with space-folding technology. Déjà vu gives us a front row seat to watch the watchers. What is "left" after all else is accounted for is the "unknown" or "x" factor - something of a glimpse through a window where 'the realm of possibility' can be managed like molding clay. The ceiling we hit when everything adds up has a ceiling above that one - not predetermined by the properties of time and space as we know them. Therein resides the 'essence' of souls not destined to depart this dimension if they have someone to rescue them.


Dr. Strange Master of the Mystic Arts
Once an arrogant and egotistical surgeon, Stephen Strange lost the use of his hands and left civilization in the west to seek the help of the Ancient One. In the snow covered mountains of Tibet, Strange was healed. He learned how his ethereal form would escape snares and traps set by Baron Mordo. Reminiscent of the introduction of yoga in western Europe [way to manage ashma] during the early 1900s, Doc was slowly initiated by the Ancient One in mystic operations that could bring other-dimensional forces into balance. Doctor Strange left the monestary and returned to Greenwich Village where he located and remodeled the building he had seen when he looked into the orb. In the past the location had been a sacred Native American site, and used throughout the ages as a magical zone. Dr. Strange assumes the mantle of Sorcerer Supreme and establishes his Sanctum Sanctorum when the Ancient One moves to higher dimensions. His man-servant Wong appears at his door shortly after Strange begins his work in the Big Apple. Dr. Strange acts as the Master of the Mystic Arts, defending this realm from any forces that would seek to corrupt it.

Stan Lee: Bring on the Dr. Strange video game

For decades, Doctor Stephen Strange has worked as a practicing sorcerer out of the weird old brownstone at 177A Bleecker Street in Manhattan's Greenwich Village. But what eerie secrets does the building hide? What lurks within its walls? Is it … haunted?

Star Wars A few of the Jedi Knights found a way to assist other Jedi when they reached their force spirit status. Yoda mentioned to young Obi-Wan Kenobe in, The Revenge of the Sith, his master Qui-Gon Jinn had transcended the material plane as a force spirit and returned to aid his surviving friends and colleagues in the coming crisis, the great Jedi purge. Obi-Wan and Yoda demonstrated the technique in, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi.


Harry Potter Lexicon has information about The Patronus, that utilizes some Etheric Double energy.


Professor Lupin coaches Harry Potter as he learns the Patronus Charm

The Patronus appears to physical eyes as a living form, composed mostly of silvery-white material, conjured by using the Patronus Charm. Harry Potter passed on his knowledge of this charm to his classmates at Hogwarts, during a series of secret meetings, inside the Room of Requirement at the school. We learned Dumbledore called meetings and conveyed information by Patronus [Dumbledore's Patronus is a phoenix] with The Order of the Phoenix. A Patronus often mutates to take the image of the love of one's life (because they so often become the 'happy thought' that generates a Patronus).

Classification of the ‘Sidhe’—
‘The beings whom I call the Sidhe, I divide, as I have seen them, into two great classes: those which are shining, and those which are opalescent and seem lit up by a light within themselves. The shining beings appear to be lower in the hierarchies; the opalescent beings are more rarely seen, and appear to hold the positions of great chiefs or princes among the tribes of Dana.’
Book of The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries, by W. Y. Evans Wentz

Sacred Place
Psycho-kinesis and tele-kinesis have been observed at sacred sites and power sites around the world. These sites often "draw mystic pilgrims", as referenced in the story of Moses in exile, called to holy ground [and the burning bush] in the Sinai Mountain range.

The term psycho-kinesis (from the Greek, "psyche," mind, soul, heart, or breath; and "kinesis," motion, movement; literally "mind-movement"), also referred to as tele-kinesis (Greek word that translates, literally, "distant-movement") with respect to strictly describing movement of matter, sometimes abbreviated PK and TK respectively, also contain allusions to the human aura.

The view of modern science [as it functions in the cement world] is that psycho-kinesis and tele-kinesis can't exist because the composition of energy would challenge existing laws of physics, including the inverse square law, the second law of thermodynamics and the conservation of momentum. Science takes the position that "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof." This enables avoidance of problems generated by phenomena re non-operational technical equipment and other 'modern' devices when they are moved to the vicinity of a sacred site zone.

Highclere Castle
Location for Downton Abby evening soap.
Premiered in fall 2010 in the United Kingdom and in January 2011 in North America.
Sir Charles Barry designed both Highclere and the Houses of Parliament; and various Earls of Carnarvon have lived in the castle for over 300 years. All visitors with an interest in architecture and the arts, also curious about the rumors of hauntings, look for background insight about the fifth Earl of Carnarvon who discovered and opened Tutankhamun’s tomb. The tour takes fans of the show through the marble-pillared entrance hall and music room, to the library, with its 5,650 books [the earliest dating from the 16th century], and a look at some display items recovered from the tomb in Egypt.
see The Lost Legacy of Highclere Castle, by Lady Carnarvon for more about the castle and Carnarvon family.

The structure of The Matrix requires the apartment of The Oracle be established as a 'sacred space' or a 'power place.' This is achieved in many subtle and obvious ways. The Priestess greets Neo and informs him that he and Morpheus are "right on time." Neo is asked to wait in a room with several younger candidates who are in the process of routine psycho-kinetic and tele-kinetic exercises. Before Neo even meets The Oracle he is made aware that time and space management problems are suspended in this location.

The Shell
The shell, in traditional metaphysical terminology is discussed in an article from my journal, In The Field With Dowsers, and with notes re The Tower House, in part 2.
The Tower House resident ghost, an eight-year old boy, buried in the house at some point, is quite active. The famous haunted home has been owned by Jimmy Page [Led Zeppelin], actor Richard Harris, and lived in during the 1920s by Colonel T. H. Minshall, DSO, well known publisher and father of Merlin Minshall, the legendary model Ian Fleming chose for his James Bond character.

Pitchford Ghosts
Colourful spirits in the estate are described by Caroline Colthurst, especially the comings and goings of Robin Grant, who is so fond of his specially imported cigarillos from South America, he seems to have smuggled at least one box of them to the other side. Over 100 people have had an experience of the "Whiff". This can happen in any part of the Hall, at any time of the day or night. The first time was about a week after he had died and Hugh Rennison, the then Caretaker, noticed this smell in the Pantry; at the time there was no one in the Hall who smoked either cigars, cigarillos or cigarettes. Other 'guests' include a little Old Lady, wearing a sort of dressing-gown, who came out of the middle bathroom on the landing on the first floor. There is also a Man in a Black Cloak, with a large hat with a plume of feathers, and some sort of armour underneath going up the staircase from the Man-Trap alcove towards one bedroom - perhaps a Cavalier.

The Tanks juxtaposed with The Matrix Machine City Pods
Avatar tanks designed by Ben Procter: A lot of thought went into those tanks full of liquid where the "avatar" bodies were grown and shipped from Earth. Procter took a basic structural scheme
from Francois Audouy and fleshed it out into a "more fully
engineered, robust amniotic system for incubating a living being
over the course of several years."

Matrix fields - electro-magnetic insulation

The vessel, pod, cup, urn, vehicle, ship, aura field, and physical anatomy are basically regarded as a covering utilized by an individual when necessary in order to extend the will into an objective set of situations. This may also extend to the idea that the higher and lower halves of human anatomy, by reflex action, may both reveal symptoms of the "other half" and sympathetically facilitate adjustment to restore harmony to the whole system. In The Matrix we find the hovercraft fleet an extension of the idea. Example: Niobe and the crew of the Logos [smallest ship in the fleet] were stranded, and awaiting rescue, were sighted by the hovercraft Mjolnir, the "Hammer" [largest ship] on their way back to Zion. Roland (played by David Roberts) is the captain of the hovercraft Mjolnir, with his commissioning plaque, "Mark XIV No. 62 Made in the USA Year 2111". Mark 14:62 reads "And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven."
The Hammer picked up a distress signal from the Logos and then turned back to aid the ship and its crew. Roland found Niobe, Ghost and Sparks unharmed, and provided an energy transfusion, known as a battery-powered jump, thereby re-starting the ship so it would be possible for Neo and Trinity to reach the Machine City.

STAR TREK: The theme has been played out through all the Star Trek TV series. One of my favourites is, "The Doomsday Machine" with William Shatner as Captain Kirk and William Windom as the tragic figure, Captain Matt Decker, who lost the entire crew of his ship, "The Constellation".

Star Wars - Shmi Skywalker Lars, as the oldest known Skywalker ancestor, was the Human mother of the Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker, as well as step-mother to Owen Lars and the paternal grandmother of Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa Solo. This made her the great-grandmother of Jaina, Jacen, and Anakin Solo, the latter who was named for her son, as well as Ben Skywalker.
In the decades following Shmi's tragic death at the hands of Tuscan raiders, she was remembered for starting the Skywalker family as the most ancient ancestor of the Skywalker clan, Shmi was the first and most powerful of Anakin's family elders to appear to him in a Force vision - that was recorded c. 21 BBY on Mortis. The vision was induced by the Son, one of the powerful Force-wielders controlling the planet, through which the current of the Force flowed. Anakin's vision of Shmi told him that he was not at fault for letting her die but that he had drawn the burden of guilt around himself. His vision of Shmi was brief but served the purpose of clearing the air in Anakin's mind. When Shmi disappeared, she appeared to briefly take the form of the Son.

Nine of Arrows Dedication
The Wild Wood Tarot

Description: A figure clad in skin robes decorated with patterns of leaves, stands in a clearing amid the Wildwood. She is holding a bow as though it were an instrument, the black of the bow crafted in her arms and an arrow held against the string as if it were a bow on a fiddle. Around her, repulsed by an invisible shield, are another eight arrows.

Meaning: The spiritual warrior dedicates their arrows of inspiration by playing the bow as an instrument of summoning. The inner oath helps keeps one on a balanced footing by dedicating skills to a greater good.

What Lies Beneath

Director: Robert Zemeckis
The Cast: Harrison Ford, Michelle Pfeiffer, Diana Scarwid, Amber Valletta, more

There are many spoilers for this suspense-thriller, so herein remains a general guide for Trump XII.

‘We cast Harrison first – he was on board immediately – instead of an action hero, Norman Spencer is more a vulnerable character. Our first choice for Claire was Michelle. Its unusual to ask two actors and they both say yes immediately.’

Part of, What Lies Beneath, is about how we survive and rebirth ourselves in good times and bad times. The water element is so central to the story, there is often the impression the characters are weaving a collective tapestry underwater. This is part of the magic of the dream world experience that we can remember when we are awake.

The séances are staged on the Bathroom tile floor because that is the source room where vapors first appeared. Five different sets were constructed so the Bathroom could provide various angles necessary for the camera to work on complex paranormal sequences. Several ‘signs’ result from accumulative impressions. The plot thickens as rising vapors start to appear on a regular basis. Mist is an air-water combination able to shapeshift rooms, hallways, and the texture of space into a canvas-like surface where semi-firm images can take shape. Claire and her friend Jody attempt a foray into unknown territory using a ouiju board that yields a hint of an invisible presence. The day following the séance, Jody drops off a book on topic, Ghosts, Witchcraft, and Alchemy. Claire decides to further investigate and she begins reading. Norman finds the book, reads it and takes notes. He now seems to believe something is happening.

• Set design note on What Lies Beneath: Just as the physical vessel covers and protects the soul, so a dwelling place should shelter and insulate the people who live there. The Spencer home has been transformed into that type of upgraded multi-tasker. The coordinated color scheme for the interior of the house and wardrobe mirror the tranquil lake outside – white with varying shades of relaxing, cool blues. Visually there is a sense of harmony and balance. Everything seems to integrate well. This is also reinforced in various office décor – you see it when you look at it – it pops out; otherwise it is non-apparent.

Bring plenty of popcorn – this is a 5 candle suspense film best enjoyed with friends.

Student of Tarot Trump XII The Sacrifice, The Martyr, Hanged Man, The Mirror should review this movie for special interpretative value re the water element of several of its many faces: involution into matter, interiorization, psyche power in strongest and most hyper-sensitive status; introversion, illusion, insights via prophesy, dreams, and rituals associated with healing and cleansing waters, karma, emotional vehicles including the arts, poetry, eurhythmy, role-playing theatre, rebirthing, and visualization techniques. This Tarot Trump is associated with Trump XIX The Sun

The Matrix Reloaded
THE MATRIX: note this excerpt is heavily edited - review the entire script intact here.


"The garage, hurry!"

THEY dive behind a corner as a tank fires. Morpheus throws the woman forward as the tank round hits the edge of the building, blowing the concrete and brick wall into a massive cloud of powder. Perhaps a ton of rubble falls on Morpheus’ legs. He drags himself forward. Niobe and Trinity grab his arms and haul him out of the rubble. Niobe shoots the lock off a steel door, and they pile into the building.


THEY rocket up the entry to a highway, ripping past cars by driving up the breakdown lane. Once they hit a straightaway Trinity floors it, and the speedo creeps up past 130 as they dodge in and out of cars.

MORPHEUS grabs his twisted, folded legs. He was literally poured into the seat. Concentrating, his face knotting in pain, he straightens the broken, fractured legs. He closes his eyes and concentrates.

The legs reform into straight, strong limbs.
MORPHEUS grabs the wheel.


"Keep your foot on the gas. Heal thyself."
