The Aurora Borealis, and Hidden Energy

January 12, 2014,

The Aurora Boralis, or the Northern Lights, were visible, and present, over parts of Britain this weekend, because a geomagnetic storm drove the aurora structure south, very unusually. The scientific explanation for the Aurora Borealis is that, when atoms in the Earth’s atmosphere collide with particles from the Sun, shimmering green particles of light are produced:  three days ago a solar eruption caused a cloud of charged gas to move towards Earth, resulting in this very rare occurrence for Britain. [caption id="attachment_2313" align="alignright" width="150"]Aurora Borealis Aurora Borealis[/caption] Last night, Saturday night, was a clear, starry night with a big moon and no cloud; I went for a walk in the late evening and was struck by the silence, the darkness and yet the brilliance of the moonlight which lit my path around the garden. There was no source of light other than that which came from the sky, and it was lovely. I did not see the Aurora Borealis, but it was a beautiful night and I decided to take some photographs of the night sky and the horizon from different directions, not expecting anything of great interest to be recorded. I was amazed to discover, on my returning home, some extraordinary images that I cannot explain, a few of which you can see on this page*. Whatever they are, the colours and shapes were filmed close to me: it may be that I was standing in the Northern Lights without knowing it, in a hidden band of energy, or it may be my camera recorded, additionally, some of the activity of the spiritual dimension which occurs all the time around us, usually without our knowing. [caption id="attachment_2314" align="alignleft" width="150"]Aurora Borealis 2 Aurora Borealis 2[/caption] We are energy, and energy is all around us, but so often we think of energy as being invisible, or do not think of it at all. That is an erroneous assumption, for energy is tangible and can be seen, in its different forms and elements, all the time if we are open to it, and, of course, Spirit is in that energy. My lesson from all of this is, not to take what is around me at face value but to try to see what lies beneath – if it is right for me to know.

What do these pictures say to you?   *The picture of Felix the Cat on the bridge shows bands of light beyond him, and around the bridge, where there should have been darkness.

  1. G'day, Claire!
    In his book, The Varieties of Religious Experience, William James devotes a chapter - literally to 'The Reality of the Unseen'. Interesting read it is, too. 🙂
