River Monster Spotted In Alaska?


River Monster Spotted In Alaska? 
By Dorraine Fisher

Seems the Bureau of Land Management is getting involved in cryptozoology too these days. Or maybe they’re just displaying the spirit of Halloween. We’re not entirely sure, but, supposedly, an employee of the Alaska BLM was checking ice on the Chena River recently and captured this footage of an “ice monster” swimming in the river. And it’s already collected over 100,000 views.


The BLM did admit on its Facebook page that their employees did not investigate, claiming it was “Kind of far out in the middle of the river.” But they did leave a lot of room for wild speculation by saying, “We’re not sure what it is. We’re letting you all be the judge.”



So, what do you think? Giant eel? Pike? Sturgeon, even? Or a Halloween prank?

The Crypto Files - The Ahool


In the episode of The Crypto Files we take a look at an interesting flying cryptid from Indonesia. While there may be no accepted scientific data for the existence of the Ahool, there are numerous reports of the creature. The witnesses are seeing something that appears to be out of the norm for the area. Indonesia is home to the Dayak fruit bat and the Bartels's wood-owl, but according the descriptions of the Ahool, these creatures are smaller in size and wingspan.

Here is episode 19


Just what is the Ahool? Could it be a large bat or owl? I think that is probably the best guess at this point. 


Thanks

Bigfoot: A Very Important Point About Footprints!!!

Comparing a REAL Bigfoot track to a fake one.


Bigfoot: A Very Important Point About Footprints!!!
What Is An Ichnologist? 
 
By Dorraine Fisher

In the bigfoot world, footprints are a big source of contention. People that live outside the body of knowledge about these creatures believe that all bigfoot footprints are faked. And bigfoot skeptics too. Because the so-called “authorities” said so around 20 years ago. And therefore, according to them, there is absolutely no evidence to support the idea that sasquatches exist. This is an outsider’s view that could NOT be further from the truth.

Because we have a branch of science on our side known as ichnology. And ichnology is the scientific study of animal traces. Ichnology seeks to determine animal behavior and movement based on the traces they leave behind. And a big part of this is the footprints.

An ichnologist is a type of offshoot of a paleontologist, and is a true scientist who is required to have as much education as any other similar scientist. So, these people really know their stuff when it comes to the evidence left behind by animals. They study small details in the landscape. And any ichnologist can walk into the woods and tell you a lot about what’s been going on there based on tiny traces.

And they must know their footprints. They are the supreme experts in the field of footprints. They can tell you what’s been walking through an area and approximately how long ago. They can tell you how big it was and what was following it. They can often tell you what it was doing or what state of health it was in, and an amazing array of other details about it. But most importantly, they know a faked footprint when they see one.

And here’s where the absurdity comes in.

Authorities will nearly always accept the word of scientists when they tell them something. And ichnologists are usually no exception. They are often called in to determine the activity in an area for purposes of conservation or historic record and are taken at their word. And this is because they really do know what they’re talking about.

But the crazy thing is, if ichnologists are called in about a 16-inch bare footprint found in the mud on a cold morning in the woods and everyone’s whispering about possibilities of bigfoot, it seems their knowledge is suddenly not respected any more. If they say, “Yep, it’s a real footprint.” Suddenly they don’t know what they’re talking about. They’ve been right about everything else pertaining to their chosen branch of science, but suddenly they’re wrong about THIS.

A real print is easily spotted...by a trained eye. A living, fleshy foot makes distinct marks in the ground. The movement of dozens of bones, ligaments, and tendons come into play and move in a fluid motion and create what is known as compression lines in the inner edge of the track. And then there are dermal ridges, that are like the fingerprints of the feet, come into play here also. These lines on the bottom of the feet that look just like the type of lines on our fingers cannot be faked. In conjunction with the sequential movement of a real, fleshy foot, these tell the real story experts can interpret.

Fake prints are the result of a solid object like a wooden or plaster “foot” pressing down onto a surface. And they produce what is known as impact ridges which are ridges created on the outer perimeter of the print from the solid object, with absolutely no give at all, pressing against the surface and pushing out. No sequential movement of the bones or muscles inside the foot can be detected in the print, no dermal ridges can be seen, and the prints are basically identical.

In essence, a real fleshy foot gives way to the uneven surface of the ground underneath it whereas a wooden or plaster foot does not. It’s like the difference between a shoe print and bare foot print. The faked print has more clear characteristics of that of a shoe print than a real bare foot print. And the real experts in this field joke that they can teach these characteristic differences to a child.

But people still say the experts, the ichnologists, the scientists trained in the study of animal traces, are wrong. They’re the experts and they’re right about everything else, but when it comes to any prints that might be bigfoot, they’re wrong about THOSE. Just those.

But are there fake prints? Absolutely, yes. But are all the hundreds or even thousands of prints fake, everywhere in North America that have ever been found? Absolutely not, as the ichnologists will tell you.

Bigfoot footprints are still the clearest REAL evidence we have of bigfoot’s existence. But skeptics will continually try to argue the point...with literally no leg to stand on. Hey, if you won’t take the word of scientists, then you’re just not interested in the facts.

Will Bigfoot Cause A Paradigm Shift?



Will Bigfoot Cause A Paradigm Shift?
Extra Large Footprints To A More Enlightened World
By Dorraine Fisher


It’s possible I romanticize Bigfoot way too much. Maybe I read way too much into them. But the reason I do that is because I think they’re a huge deal...in changing the way people think and in the course of human evolution and the way we view our world.

And yes, this sounds pretty cheesy, but I’ll tell you why I think this way.

I think we humans are on our way toward an enormous shift in the way we think and perceive everything around us. I think our minds are evolving in many ways. And examining all things metaphysical and paranormal is a big part of that shift. It’s about believing in possibilities. Imagining that things we can’t actually see or put our hands on still may exist. That the definition of something being real is a little different than we thought.

I think those who believe in the paranormal or metaphysical have had some kind of experience in that sense, are much further ahead in this evolution. They’re either well able to imagine there is a whole world of existence beyond what they can see and touch, or they don’t have to imagine it because they’ve actually experienced it. But either way, their minds are open, and that’s what it takes to advance to the next level.

Last night, I started to work on an article countering a skeptic’s reasons why bigfoot probably doesn’t exist. And, as I was trying to formulate my arguments and articulate them well, it suddenly occurred to me that it simply didn’t matter. Whatever I said would either be met with agreement or opposition. And this depends on the personal paradigms of the reader. It didn’t matter what I said or how I said it. People will either believe or they won’t. My words won’t change this. And here’s why.

People have ALWAYS already made up their minds...from the beginning of humanity. And neuroscience says that one of the biggest flaws in the human mind is, if we think we already know something, we won’t look at any other information about it. We’ll just stop right there and not move any further forward. And that’s where our evolution stops too. We want to believe we’re right. We need to believe it. And we’ll actively look ONLY for evidence that supports what we already believe. And we’ll dismiss all other ideas.

We see this all the time in politics and religion and even in science. People will say another’s religious beliefs are wrong because they’re different, or they’ll only watch news stations that tell the news in a way that supports what they already believe about the world. Or they’ll reject new ideas simply because the scientific community denies there’s enough evidence to support them. So many minds are closed in this very way.

I think people are often afraid to change their minds. Afraid to go rogue and think for themselves. Afraid to stray away from authorities they believe have all the answers. Afraid to imagine it all might be different than they’ve always believed. I guess it’s like admitting they were wrong before. And wrong is somehow the worst thing we can be, we think. So people will stick to their current construct, even if it’s outdated or there’s simply no evidence left to support it. But it’s simply too much trouble to change the values we’ve always had and built our lives around, or to rewrite every chapter in the book. Even if we really should.

So, that’s why I say that people who aspire to or believe in things paranormal or metaphysical or just plain elusive have a distinct advantage. Maybe they’ve always been open to new things, or better yet, maybe they’ve been made to believe something different than they did before through an experience. So the pathway has been opened in their minds. And that pathway is a much bigger deal than we often realize.

But this is how we all should aspire to be.

Because as long as we have this attitude that we already know the “big truth,” and there’s nothing new we can learn, we’ve already failed as a species. How can we really call ourselves intelligent if we can’t wrap our minds around the idea that our own ideas about a lot of things may be flat-out wrong? How can we truly evolve as an intelligent being if we can’t challenge the very thoughts that are sitting in our heads holding us down right this minute?

This is called being stuck. And in order to move forward and become the humans we were all meant to be, we have to get unstuck.

But can we do that?

Some of us can. Some of us who’ve already accepted the strange, the unknown, and the not-quite-physical as part of their personal reality.

The Crypto Files - Agogwe


Welcome to episode 18 of The Crypto Files.
In this episode we take a look at what most consider some type of cousin to our beloved Bigfoot. It is known as Agogwe and it is found in the forest of East Africa. The agogwe is also known as the kakundakari or kilomba in Zimbabwe and the Congo region. Some theories suggest that agogwe are a surviving species of Gracile australopithecine, a bipedal primate known to science from approximately 2.5-4.5 million years ago. Others think it could be bonobos, which are chimp-like creatures that occasionally walk upright.

Here is the episode.


What do you think? is it a know creature like some theories suggest or is it a, as of yet, unrecognized bipedal being?

Thanks

The Cloud Monster


Okay, so it has been a long time since I did a Fact or Faked post, but today I thought I would break another one out. The above photo has been a pretty hot item and has circulated on social media for months. There are a few variations as to where the photo was taken, but the most common seems to be I-40 near Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. I have travel several times to the Pigeon Forge area, so I'm somewhat familiar with the landscape.

The photograph depicts a Cthulhu looking monster in the clouds. Some attribute the strange formation to aliens and others think it is a series of tornadoes. The image gives a ominous feeling of impending doom.

So, with a little digging and searching I was able to find out just where the picture comes from and more about it. The highway in the photograph is not in Tennessee. In fact, it is not even in the United States. The highway in the picture is near Sofia, Bulgaria. In the original photograph there is no "cloud monster".

This version of the photograph was created by digital artist Da ShadeE. Da ShadeE said this about the image, "It is a freehand painting over a photo, done in Photoshop." Apparently, Da ShadeE used google search to obtain the original picture, without a monster in it. Then created the artwork he titled "Cthulhu Raising". Then all it took was some creative storytellers using his artwork to make it go viral.

So, in conclusion the photo is fake when it is said to be a real creature or photograph taken near Pigeon Forge. But you have to admit that artwork is fantastic.

Cloud Monster Photo = Fake

Bigfoot in Indonesia?


There is a video going around and it has been really popular, it is of a mystery creature walking through a waterfall in Indonesia. The original title lists the creature as a bigfoot. I have viewed the video many times and there seems to be some type of figure walking into the waterfall. It also appears to be carrying something. The something almost looks like a astronauts helmet or some type of helmet. The face of the figure seems very white looking.    

Now, before I get more into the particulars of the video, I think I should mention that there is a similar reported creature to a bigfoot in Indonesia. It is most commonly called the Orang Pendek. For at least the last 100 years the Orang Pendek has been seen and documented by the local tribes, villagers and Western scientist and travelers. Unlike bigfoot, the Orang Pendek has been described as being smaller in height. Normally with height maxing out at around 5 foot tall. The color of the Orang Pendek is similar to bigfoot in that the colors described cover a wide range. Witnesses describe Orange Pendek as being bipedal with short legs and long powerful arms.

Now, back to the video. I have taken a still frame from the video and attempted to adjust the color and tweak the image. You still can't see a whole lot but here it is.

Please notice the large white object that it appears to be carrying. It kind of looks like a helmet to me but that is just a wild guess.

Something to keep in mind about this video. We do not know the height of the figure and we do not know the height of the waterfall. This will make it extremely difficult in attempting to determine the height of the figure. Of course, we really don't have a lot of clues to go on, for all we know it could be someone pulling a hoax. It could be a guy in a suit. I know the first couple times I watched the video, I thought the figure looked like some kind of CGI effect. In fact, I still think there is a good chance this is a computer generated figure. It seems the video has some distortion going on. This can be an effort to make the CGI effect appear more realistic or is sometimes a side effect of using the software to create the figure. But of course this is all speculation from me.

I invite everyone to watch the video for yourself and form your own opinions about it. Here is the video.


What do you think ? let us know?

Thanks

The Crypto Files - The Adjule

In this episode of The Crypto Files, we take a quick look at a little less famous crypitd, the Adjule.
If you play video games, the Adjule might be familiar to you and you don't even know it. Some reports of the Adjule date back to around 1925.

I hope this episode introduces you to a crypitd that you didn't know much about or maybe a cryptid that you have never heard of before. 

Also, in the episode we change a couple of things up. The main change is in the narrator. I know most folks don't care for my voice and I thought it would be fun to get some of our other team members involved. Hopefully, we can have another team member narrate a future episode.  I think the changes make the series a little more fun.

Here is episode 17 of The Crypto Files.



Thanks

Do These NASA Photos Show A Missile Launch From The Moon?



Do These NASA Photos Show A Missile Launch From The Moon?

By Dorraine Fisher


Alien and conspiracy theorists have contended for years the moon is some kind of hub for alien activity. And this NASA photo that recently surfaced is adding fuel to that fire. Literally.

Anomaly hunters searching this footage of the Apollo 11 are saying it may be a depicting a missile launch from the moon. The photo appears to show a dark cylindrical object with what they believe is a stream of exhaust fumes shooting out the back. Though experts argue there can be no exhaust fumes as such on the moon because space is a vacuum and wouldn’t allow for this. 

But what is it? Just at first glance, it looked to me like a solid object protruding from the moon’s surface. But since there is no way to locate the photo in NASA’s massive archive, we’re left to speculate. 

Nevertheless, conspiracy theorists are saying it could be evidence of a battle on the moon between earth and some extraterrestrial beings. But we may never know. 

What do you think? Missile launch from the moon or something else?

Compelling Bigfoot Evidence We Don’t Normally See



Compelling Bigfoot Evidence We Don’t Normally See
Two Bigfoot Researchers And Their Unusual Find

By Dorraine Fisher

   Most bigfoot research brings a lot of evidence we see on a regular basis. Stick formations,
 footprints, hair samples, etc. All are important but are fairly normal to find these days. So when I see
something different or out of the ordinary that I believe is important to note, I like to bring attention to it.
Charles Tarver next to upside down tree.
 Bigfoot researchers Cynthia and Charles Tarver were driving down a road in Kisatchie National Forest in Louisiana when they found this unusual tree. Luckily they had good eyes for detail and noticed it at all. They would have been really easy to miss. This tree have been turned upside down and jammed into the ground like sticks. Except that it is a full-grown mature tree. It would take super strength like that of a bigfoot or special equipment to accomplish this. And it’s important to note that the Tarvers said that no evidence of disturbance to the ground, either recently or in the recent past, was found around the tree. No chainsaw evidence or anything else...as we can concur from these photographs. The Tarvers believe this unusual tree may mark the entrance to an area occupied by sasquatches. Many other formations of trees and sticks in bigfoot-occupied areas are believed to be landmarks, warnings, or other communications they may use to help each other or even deter each other from entering a territory.

Now, our team has seen this phenomena of upside-down trees before, but very rarely. And one such find involved our TCC team mate Jason Morse who also found very large upside-down trees back in July of this year (Click here). And at that time, we asked if anyone else has seen such a phenomenon before, and we’re asking again for opinions and any input. We’ve also been told that loggers have done this type of thing, but these trees are being found in protected areas where no logging takes place and there’s no evidence of heavy equipment usage.

We believe this is a very significant find. It would be easy to dismiss this as human work, but I believe it’s always important to never ignore possible evidence. It all adds information to our huge database about these creatures.

So, tell us what you think? Territorial markers? Warning signs, even? Have you ever seen or heard about this phenomenon before?

The Origin Of Bigfoot: An Alternative Theory


The Origin Of Bigfoot: An Alternative Theory
Nephilim? Or Something Else Entirely?

By Dorraine Fisher

Those of us immersed in the study of bigfoot and their possible origins have heard some pretty wild theories...and some pretty interesting and even reasonable ones. And I like to look at all of them and decide if there’s anything logical there we can all use in every one.

Some like to believe bigfoot is a modern version of the once believed extinct ape, gigantopithecus. Some believe them to be fellow humans, especially in light of current claims by Dr. Melba Ketchum and the Sasquatch Genome Project. And others take a more biblical stance and believe them to be the giant fallen angels of the Old Testament. The Nephilim. The offspring of union between The Sons of God and the Daughters of Man. To atheists, this theory isn’t even worth mentioning. But I think all theories may be relevant to a bigger picture. At any rate, we shouldn’t ignore them until all questions have been answered satisfactorily.

So here goes.

According to the story in Genesis 6:4, the sons of God who occupied Canaan were checking out human women, or daughters of men there and liked what they saw. And they mated with them, thus creating the offspring disagreeable to God, forever known as the Nephilim, or fallen ones. They were considered to be fallen angels, and curiously, giants. And the claim that they were described as giants causes some bigfoot believers to believe they were, in fact, the ancestors of our modern day bigfoot.
And it’s an important question to ask. But this theory has always bothered me. If bigfoot is the product of this union, how did this offspring of gods and humans become this hairy beast witnesses claim to have seen around the world? And if these beings were fallen angels; troublemakers of sorts, then why aren’t they making themselves known and wreaking havoc everywhere to this day? These quiet, shy, reclusive creatures are hiding from us very well and causing no problems at all for the human race. So, though I always say that I don’t ask anyone to replace their own ideas with mine, this story just doesn’t work for me.

But there’s another one that might. And it comes from my previous discussions about Intervention Theory.

Intervention theory is based on the interpretations of linguist and researcher Zecharia Sitchins who first cracked the code of the ancient Sumerian texts and attempted to tell the world this controversial story of human creation based on these texts.

Sitchins tells the story of the Annunaki who occupied Iraq some 250,000 years ago. They were beings that had come here from another planet known as Nibiru looking for the gold they needed to fix their atmosphere.

But they found this mining for gold here to be tedious, and they didn’t like doing it. So they proposed an idea to use their own DNA to genetically manipulate the very unimpressive hominids that already occupied the planet, believed by some to be homoerectus, and make workers out of them for mining the gold. If this story is in fact true, these beings they needed to create would have to be controllable, have good manual dexterity, just intelligent enough to do the work, but not so intelligent as to cause problems for them or question their authority. And they needed to be able to breed on their own.
And so, it is said, the Annunaki got to work in the lab, manipulated some DNA and created us. And they called us Adamu, which is curiously close to the name Adam in the bible.

But where does bigfoot come in?

Part of the reason I rejected nephilim theory is because I think it’s necessary to weigh the information afforded by every source available. Not just one. And part of the reason I reject nephilim theory is due to Native American legends of Sasquatch. Many native stories refer to Sasquatch as “our brother.” And they claim that sasquatch was here first. Before us. If you aspire to the idea that there may be a lot of truth in legends, and if there is any truth to Native American legends about these creatures, then it blows nephilim theory out of the water. If they (bigfoot) were here before us, there is no way they could have been the product of any human/demi-god hybridization. And if they are “our brother,” then that suggests, curiously, that we have the same parents.

Recent DNA findings about Bigfoot suggest that the maternal side of the DNA of these beings is made up of human DNA, while the nuclear DNA  is completely unknown to us, or curiously referred to as “alien” DNA.

In parallel, humans also have DNA that can’t be matched up to any other creature on this planet. Once called junk DNA, it is now often referred to as, you guessed it, alien DNA. So we’re both pretty much made up of the same stuff. Human and alien.

So, are these creatures, in fact, our brothers as Native American legends claim?

Let’s contemplate a possible scenario.

If the so-called “gods” or aliens were experimenting with DNA in a lab trying to create the perfect worker to mine their gold, is it reasonable to assume they might not have been really experienced in creating exactly what they wanted the first time. Is it reasonable to imagine they might have made a few errors along the way before they believed they created the perfect product?

Did one of those errors result in the bigfoot creature we know today?

These experiments could have created many different types of hybrids before they came up with the results they were looking for. And if we think about what they were trying to accomplish with these experiments, bigfoot would have been all wrong for the task. Yes, they had the strength, but they may have been a little too far on the wild side. Too much the free spirits and children of nature, and perhaps even much too intelligent to be tied to manual labor. And, most importantly, they may have lacked the manual dexterity required to operate the tools needed to do mining work.

And we might even be able to imagine the “gods” created a fair number of these beings before realizing they were all wrong. And their free spirits combined with their super strength and intelligence may have caused them to escape off into the forest and hide from all of us forever. Never to be enslaved again.

Sasquatch are assigned so many different inexplicable abilities. Does the theory that they are half “god” make these more plausible?

But if they are half-god, then so are we.

And I think it’s also important to mention that I maintain our human-like ancestors such as Neanderthals and homoerectus were probably covered in hair, contrary to what science has always told us. There is no real evidence to support the existence of a hairless hominid. I believe it may be the alien side of our DNA that makes us hairless, because hairlessness serves no purpose for us in the real world... unless we aren’t entirely of this world. But scientists are still trying to come up with a plausible explanation for the hairlessness. At any rate, this union could have caused a hairless alien/hair-covered homoerectus hybridization to result in a very tall, very hairy offspring like a bigfoot-type creature, every bit as easily as it could have resulted in a smaller, hairless creation like us.

(Check out this video: 6 Reason to wonder if human aren't of this world)

Just like the offspring of two different races that can produce a child of one color and a second child of the other color, are we humans and sasquatches just two different types of children from the same parents?

The Annunaki were believed by humans to be gods. Or at least they seemed like gods to the simple-minded early humans describing them at the time. They were said to be 8 to 10 feet tall and have the ability to shapeshift and do other things humans deemed magical. It’s also possible they spoke telepathically, and they were said to have commanded some amazing technology. And the Sumerian texts, according to Sitchins, tell the story of how they created us.

Sasquatches are believed by some to possess abilities that may seem paranormal or alien to us. But do they (sasquatches) believe the same thing about us humans? Does our technology and reckless behavior with our resources remind them of the so-called gods that may be our creators. Maybe sasquatches avoid us so strongly because they associate us with our Annunaki creators that occupied the planet so long ago and created us in their image. Maybe our appearance scares them so much that they’ve adapted some amazing skills to avoid us. Or maybe those skills were unintended gifts from our creators.

Golems - is it More than Folklore?


When we speak or write about a Golem, most people probably think we are talking about Gollum from the J.R.R Tolken's Lord of the Rings or Hobbit movies. But while they may have some similar traits, we are not talking about that creature and his pursuit of his precious ring. Nope, we are talking about an animated anthropomorphic being from Jewish folklore. The golem would normally be formed out of clay or mud and would be brought to life and then controlled. The method of this seems to vary with different tales.

The oldest stories of golems date to early Judaism.  In the Talmud, Adam was initially created as a golem, created out of mud. Early tales of golems lean toward them not having the ability to speak. One of the methods, at least early on, to bring a golem to life was to use various letters from the Hebrew alphabet to form a "Shem", any one of the names of God, and write it on paper and insert it into the mouth of the golem. You could later stop the golem by removing the paper. In some cases removing the paper from the mouth of the golem caused it to return to dust other times it just put it on pause.

Another method of animating and controlling the golem was to write the word "emet" on the being. In Hebrew "emet" means Truth. Usually this was written on the golem's forehead but I have seen stories where it was written on the back of the hand or other methods used.  The golem would be stopped or deactivated by removing the "e" from "emet". That leaves you with "met" which would mean Death or Dead in Hebrew. So you would go from Truth to Death by scrubbing off the letter. In some stories, the golem would be deactivated once it completed the bidding of the person who was controlling it. In some cases it was used to do hard work, to get revenge or settle a score.

The Golem on DVD

There is a long history and many hand me down tales about golems. There is even one about a Nazi trying to stab a golem during WWII in an attic of a church. The attic is not open to the general public but in 1984 a film crew was able to visit and film the attic. They came away with no evidence to support the old WWII claim.

Golems have often made appearances in movies, TV shows, games and cartoons. Even in today's popular shows and movies golems can be found. I would assume that most people have no idea that golems are actually rooted in Jewish history and folklore. That many people have and continue to believe in the creation of golems.






While I can see that there may be some confusion about golems, and just what they are, I heard it explained like this:

A Ghost is a spirit without a body, a Golem is a body without a spirit.  

And I know a lot of us believe in ghost, but what about Golems?
Maybe it is worth taking a deeper look before making up your mind.

Having Dreams About Your Ex? The Meaning Of Dreams Of Relationships Gone Bad



Having Dreams About Your Ex?
The Meaning Of Dreams Of Relationships Gone Bad

By Dorraine Fisher
     Since I do some dream interpretations for people, they often come to me asking about dreams about revisiting former relationships. Even relationships with people who may have done terrible things to them in the past or someone that they, for other reasons, wouldn’t think twice about rekindling.

      And these dreams are often very disturbing to the dreamer. They come to me with fears they may be harboring some kind of hidden feelings of love for this person and not realize it consciously. And the biggest fear is that this may be interfering with a current relationship. They may start to question their feelings for the current person. Suddenly they’re not sure what they feel, and they might even come to believe their subconscious mind is hiding some terrible truth.

      But hold on a minute! It may not be as dramatic as all that. There may be cause for a tiny bit of concern. But let’s not forget that our dreams are our own natural psychic abilities. They’re there to forewarn us of problems or things that may be bothering us of which we’re not consciously aware. And also, your dreams are rarely about other people. They’re almost always about what’s going on in YOUR own mind. Your dreams are all about YOU and YOUR feelings.

      That all being said, if you’re suddenly having dreams about a love interest from a previous relationship, even someone from very long ago, don’t sweat it! Even if you’re kissing this person, sleeping with this person, and being otherwise very intimate with this person in this dream. And here are some things to consider before you start worrying.

      Our past relationships are an important part of our history. Depending on how long they lasted, they probably made quite an impression on you, and even changed you in many ways forever. So, even though they’re over now, they’re still an important part of who you are.

      And let’s be clear about one thing. If you still have feelings for someone, you know it. There’s no mistaking it. You may still think about that person every day and wonder quite often what they’re doing or where they are. And you may be hoping they’ll walk through that door looking for you.

      But most of the time, you’ve resolved in your mind that it’s really over, or that person did things you can’t forgive, and you may even hate them for it and never, ever WANT to revisit a relationship with them ever again. This is when these dreams of rekindling a relationship with them are more disturbing.

      But they very rarely mean that you are harboring any real feelings for them in the present. What these dreams most often mean is that things you’re going through in the present time are reminding you of them in some way. They’re reminding you of how you felt when you were with them.

      Ask yourself what the first thing is you think of when you think of that person you used to love. And the answer to that question is what that person represents in your dreams. I.E. if cheating is the first things that comes to your mind when you think about them, then you need to think about whether you’re experiencing some terrible betrayal in your current waking life. Do your feelings about the current betrayal remind you of the feelings you had with that past person?
  
    And this doesn’t have to be a betrayal in a love relationship. It could be any kind of current relationship in which you feel someone is cheating you...with a family member or colleague at work. It could be a group or organization; the government, your church or school. Anything.
And if you’re having some kind of intimate relations in the dream with this past love, it only means that you feel too close and intimate with these feelings in your current situation. It means it may be bothering you more than you consciously realize.

      In a nutshell, the dream means that you’re having feelings in the present that are very similar to feelings you had in the past with this past love. It doesn’t mean you want to rekindle a relationship with that person. It only means that your current waking life situation is invoking the same emotions you felt when you were with that past person.

     And incidentally, if you are in a new relationship in your life and you’re suddenly having dreams about an ex, this could mean that the new relationship is somehow reminding you of that past relationship in some way. So you have to give some serious thought to that current relationship and make sure you’re not making the same mistakes you made with the past person. Your dream is telling you that there are similarities, and that you need to proceed with caution.

      After all, that’s what dreams are really for. To help you predict problems before they happen and to make you understand what’s going on in your unconscious mind that you’re suppressing. Your dreams always know the right thing, and they’re reminding you that you also know the answers. Even if you’re not acknowledging them.

    So the next time you have a dream you’re having a torrid love affair with your ex, don’t worry

It’s only to literally wake you up to what’s going on in your present life.

Bigfoot Tracks Found in Kentucky


I was recently contacted by a man, who I will call Al, and he had found and videoed some possible bigfoot tracks while out hunting ginseng. I have talked to him several times about other things found in the area where the possible bigfoot activity is taking place. Al, was concerned about receiving ridicule, so we have changed his name and omitted his last name. We are also not giving out the exact location, as this is private property and there is ongoing research. 

Here is the report, followed by some video.

Name: Al ******(Name changed to protect identity)
Date: Sept. 2016
Location: SE Kentucky
Video/Photo: Yes, video and photos
Number of witnesses: 2

There is also other evidence that was found and not photographed. This was due to the fact it was found before the tracks where found. One such thing was where roots of plants had been removed from the ground. There appears to human shaped finger scraps into the soil. While Al thought this was unusual, he thought it could have been done by something else or somebody. I assume he was not thinking about bigfoot at this point, because he had not found the tracks. There was also an unusual game cam capture about 2 or 3 weeks later.

Here is the video of the tracks and of the unusual game camera capture.



I'm in contact with Al and there are efforts to document more evidence from this area. I hope to have an update in the future.


Thanks

UFOs Filmed in Kentucky


First, let me acknowledge the fact that TCC team member Greg Champy has done the majority of the leg work on this intriguing case. This is a very interesting video of a large group of unknown flying objects in the night sky. What is even more intriguing is the apparent flight path of these unknown objects. It appears the flight path leads to or goes over a Uranium Enrichment Facility.

Here are some details about the case.

Witness:  Tim ******** (Last name withheld)
Sighting Date: April 30th, 2016
Location: Northwest of Lone Oak,near Paducah, Ky

Here is a map of the flight path


Here is the original video along with some enhancements.



Special thanks to Tim for sharing and allowing us to share his sighting.


Thanks
Greg & Tom
