Tuesday Evening

Well gang it's been an interesting few days.

New Yorkers survived another plane crash.

Globally many souls are crossing over now - or preparing to leave - while other souls quickly awaken to higher consciousness changes.

Crystalinks was down longer than they predicted and there still seems to be glitches wherein it's down for at least an hour. They sent me a note and told me to be patient! That does seem to be the 'name of the game'. No use trying to approach the subjects of stat as they wouldn't be accurate anyway.

Would you believe 2001 is almost over!? Another fun year in 3D! What was the highlight of 2001 for you?

Next Thursday is Thanksgiving . . . Do we have anything to be thankful for? In our personal lives? As a country? Hmmm......

For me it's been a great year even with all the problems in NYC! I have seen the program move into a new harmonic - and good or bad it is shaking everything free from the old value systems that no longer work!

As I look at New York - I still think it's an amazing place to live no matter what happens. I don't plan to leave unless the Verrazano Bridge falls down on my house!

THE ROAD HOME for me now is New York City!

Somewhere there's a light at the end
of the tunnel that beckons me to sleep. . .

A woman's work is never done! Back tomorrow!


Wednesday morning

The last email I answered before I went to sleep was from a woman who had found her 'soul name' after reading the new file - Names Are Frequencies.

With that in mind - as I fell asleep - I asked, "Who is Ellie? What is that frequency all about?"

In the dream you have - you know, the dream just before you wake up so you can remember it - I saw myself as the Lion who was finally awake. I've seen him all of my life in gentle slumber. He was wandering about aimlessly.

Suddenly he stopped and laid down to 'fall' asleep again!

Everything in my soul said, "No! No! You must stay awake!"

As I said that the energies suddenly REVERSED - 'DESERVER'.

The Lion instantly transformed into - merged with - a Lioness.

I heard, "Leo! The 'O' means 'Ovum' - The Sphere - The return of the feminine energies!"

The 'Le' now sounded and looked like 'Ellie'.

I heard the soul name, "Leda".

The Lioness went through the 'whole (completion) /hole in the tree of life' and started to run. She knew what she had to do and was rushing along on THE ROAD HOME.

Today I researched the name Leda and found this - Leda is a Greek Goddess who gave birth to the World Egg. The swan is her totem.�

Leda is a familiar name in Greek mythology, associated with the tale of Leda and the Swan.

Like so many women in ancient Greece (both real and mythological), Leda was important as a wife and mother. In legend, she was the wife of Tyndareus (a king of Sparta).

Leda was the mother to many noble children, including the famous beauty Helen, the heroine Clytemnestra, and the twins Castor and Pollux - Polydeuces. The twins were also known as the Dioscuri.

According to myth, Leda was seduced by the god Zeus while he was masquerading as a swan.

The memorable / metaphoric union between Leda and the Swan has long been immortalized in poetry, art, and mythology.

In another version of the story - Helen was born from an egg because her father Zeus appeared as a swan when he impregnated Leda. Other versions claim that it was the goddess Nemesis who laid the egg from which Helen hatched. Some ancient sources state that Polydeuces was also the son of Zeus, while his twin brother Castor was Tyndareus's child.

From Ellie: Z played the role of Zeus. This is another metaphoric story he wants me to share with you - swans - going from ugly ducklings to beautiful creatures - white birds - ascension - light - twins - merging enegies.

I saw a white elephant

who looked me in the eye. I heard,
"Ellie! Return to Elephantine Island."

This image reminds me of these two

rock formations that were part of a journey

I made just before July 4th weekend in 1998.

I woke up and went to the computer to search for Elephantine Island.

Once again THE ROAD HOME took me back to Egypt!

The references below strongly link with feminine energies.

Elephantine Island - Aswan - Notes

The ancient stronghold of Elephantine Island separates the Nile into two channels opposite Aswan. Walk through Nubian villages to the small museum, set in shady gardens. Nearby is a Nilometer and the ruins of Abu, settled by ancient Egyptians who believed it to be near the source of the Nile. The remains of the many temples that were built here can still be seen, including the Temple of Khnum, originally erected during the Old Kingdom, a Graeco-Roman Necropolis and the Temple of Satet built by Queen Hatshepsut.

Anuket - Worshipped at Elephantine, she was associated with the gazelle. With Anuket and Khenmu, Satis - all female - formed the Elephantine Triad - called the "Queen of Elephantine," she guarded the borders of Egypt, especially the border with Nubia.

Temple of Elephantine Island at Aswan, Egypt

Elephantine Island is the place where the oldest ruins of Egypt have been found. Locals inhabited this Island already before the first Egyptian dynasties, more then 5,000 years ago.

Most Of the trade during ancient times near Aswan took place upon Elephantine Island. It was also here that the governor had his residence. It also served as the center for the cult religion of the ram-headed god Khnum. The island was originally called 'Yebu', which is the ancient Egyptian word for elephant.

The Greeks called the island Elephantine because of the ivory trade that was done on the island. All you have to do is to look at the rock formations and you can see why it was called Elephantine Island.

Elephantine Island is the largest of the Aswan area islands, and is one of the most ancient sites in Egypt, with artifacts dating to predynastic periods. This is probably due to its location at the first Cataract of the Nile, which provided a natural boundary between Egypt and Nubia.

Rock Elephants & Ancient Inscriptions

As an island, it was also easily defensible. In fact, the ancient town located in the southern part of the island was also a fortress through much of it's history. At one time, there was a bridge from the mainland to the island.

Elephantine is Greek for elephant. In ancient times, the Island, as well as the southern town, was called Abu, or Yabu, which also meant elephant. The town has also been referenced as Kom, after it's principle god of the island, Khnum (Khnemu).

It is believed that the island received it's name because it was a major ivory trading center, though in fact, it was a major trading post of many commodities. There are large boulders in the river near the island which resembled bathing elephants, particularly from afar, and this too has been suggested as a reason for the island's name.

The island is very beautiful, and while many of the artifacts there are in ruin, there is still considerable to see.

One of it's main attractions is it's Nilometer, which is one of only three on the Nile, which was used to measure the water level of the Nile as late as the nineteenth century.

Lines On Wall - People Taxed By Level

There has been an ongoing excavation at the town for many years by the German Archaeological Institute, and some of the finds along with many other island artifacts, including a mummified ram of Khnum, are located in the Elephantine Museum.

Another major attraction is the ruins of the Temple of Khnum.

Elephantine Island was considered to be home of this important Egyptian god, and while this structure dates back to the Queen Hatshepsut of the 18th Dynasty, there are references to a Temple of Khnum on the island as early as the 3rd Dynasty.

The three local deities were foremost Khnum, but also Satet and a local Nubian goddess Anqet.

These gods were worshipped here since the earliest dynasties), also build by Queen Hatshepsut, a shrine to Hekayib from the 6th Dynasty, a local governor who was deified after his death.

His cult flourished during the middle kingdom, and some fine statues from the shrine are now in the museum. You will also find a 3rd Dynasty granite step pyramid which is now just visible, and to the north, the mud-brick vaults of the late period which housed the bodies of the royal rams.

On the south end of the island is a small one room Ptolemaic temple which was constructed from materials removed from the Kalabsha Temple. Here, there are decorations attributed to the Nubian Pharaoh Arkamani from the 3rd century BC. The building seems to have been finished by the Romans with reference to Caesar Augustus.

Other artifacts and archaeological sites have been removed or destroyed. Prior to 1822, there were temples of Thutmose III and Amenhotep III, both of which were relatively intact, but they were destroyed in that year by the Turkish government.

A rare calendar, known as the Elephantine Calendar, dating to the reign of Tuthmosis III, was found in fragments, and a Papyrus dating to the 13th dynasty and known as the Elephantine Papyrus was also discovered. It is unclear where these artifacts are currently located.

A stela with inscriptions commemorating the repairs made on a 12th Dynasty fortress which honored Senwosret III was also found, and is now in the British Museum.

Elephantine Island is a beautiful place to visit, with wonderful gardens and some truly significant artifacts. It is also a good place to spend some leisure time, wondering among the Nubian villages where the people are friendly and the houses are often very colorful.

The houses often have paintings or carved with a crocodile at the bottom, a fish in the middle and a man on top, with a woman's hand made of brass as a door knocker between the fish and man.

Others will have a sacred black cube of Mecca, with a painting depicting the means of the owner's pilgrimage to Mecca.

I always find it interesting that so many changes reference the time line approximately 500 BC. That was also the time of Buddha and Zoroaster. There is something about that grid that is trying to trigger something for me.

Some of the links below are a bit too complicated for me yet I felt that others need to make a connection so I posted them.

What I do when text doesn't connect for me is take it to the soul level and see what triggers.
