Things Heating Up - Adven Seven

Those who follow HQ may have taken note that once a year for the last seven years, the Advens and I get together at my home in Colorado.  Normally, we'd have five or six present. This year, however, was a thin year and everyone  (except for Dave Price)  had other commitments to tend to. As we didn't have any of the ladies with us, we decided to take the hardest of the journeys and to head for 'The City'.  There is no water in the area and it is a critical element, not to mention carrying the weight of it in.

As Dave and I hiked in, we heard an ominous sound that is clearly identifiable to anyone - a rattlesnake. We both froze, located the source and  gave it plenty of room.  The critter was about thirty feet away from Dave. I've been in this area now since 1994 and I have crossed paths with a bull, a bear, and a big cat but never a live snake (much less a rattler). The area we were in was at nine thousand feet with no water sources and the full heat of the summer. Normally, such creatures move to lower altitudes in order to find water and prey. The presence of the snake was anomalous and out of place. I told Dave that the problem with a rattlesnake wasn't if they saw you  because they'd warn you off. The real problem is when they didn't see you - that's when people get bit.

We set up camp for the night - had a meal and went to sleep waking up near dawn the next morning. We knew we'd have to take enough water into the Keep with us but, inexplicably, didn't. This would later produce a crisis situation.

We worked our way to the city dropping two thousand five hundred feet from our starting point. There we discovered that the castle was missing and had disappeared. http://www.planetaryhq.com/city11.jpg  as seen to the far right of this photo.
We also made another significant discovery that will be the subject of a paper at a later date. Security concerns prohibit release of the information at this time.

Another anomaly crept up on our way in. As I stood on a ridge line, I began taking photos with a digital camera. Very quickly, I began getting 'battery low' warnings. These were new batteries. I had a set of binoculars that also had a digital camera inside. I cannibalized the batteries from it for the camera. Again, the batteries drained quickly and the camera died.

As we began the two thousand foot climb out - we both took note of the water situation and the fact that we were soon going to be in serious trouble. I told Dave that of the two of us - he was in better shape and there was no point in his staying (and wasting) with me. Normally, out in the wild - splitting up is a bad idea. Now, however, it became mandatory. I showed him the quickest way out, told him to get back to camp and water himself up up good - then to grab some water and bring it back in for me.

Dehydration isn't fun. I followed the path out that I'd set for Dave but reached a point where I was getting dizzy and nauseous- signs of heat prostration or, worse, heat stroke. I planted my backside under a tree and tried to recover some strength. I was able to drag it about half way up the slope leading out before the dizziness overtook me again. This time there would be no getting up.

I'm not a person who is accustomed to having his life in someone else's hands and my discomfort to the point was extreme.
About an hour and a half later, Dave reappears with the water. It could not have been any joy for him to have to hike out, then back and then out again. Regardless he did what he had to do to pull my cookies out of the fire and I feel public credit for his courage, stamina, dedication and loyalty are well deserved.

As we stumbled into camp - neither of us was hungry. Dave didn't realize that I had an extra two liter bottle of water in my backpack and we spent the evening guzzling makeshift coffee and rehydrating while we discussed the days events.

The next morning, we broke camp and started out while avoiding the area where we'd encountered the rattlesnake.
About half way up  there it was again - the snake. This time, it was about six feet in front of me and didn't see me coming. I started back peddling and rolled down the slope increasing the distance between us. The snake got off one rattle and then went on its way.  Referring back to my comments to Dave about the known behaviors of the animal - I considered it slightly more than curious that the exact situation that was most likely to get me bit - did arrive exactly as I had stated it.
I allowed that transdimensional agents may have 'put' the snake there. Then, on the other hand, I just might be getting paranoid.
So I put it on the back burner and keep a weather eye for critters with venom.

The snake, incidentally, was a young one - only about two feet in length. The young rattler is generally much more dangerous than the adult version. They don't know they don't need a full load of venom and tend to shoot the whole venom sack on the first bight.

There is a new associate with the Advens - her name is Pat (Patricia)  Pat arrived with her dimensional abilities fully operational. She needed only a few refinements and some direction in order to get them up to the outer edge of possibility.
One of the issues I showed her was how to defend herself using soulfire. This became critical today.

Driving down the road near her home she received a dimensional message from her Temporal Adjuster to slow down - she did.
Immediately thereafter there is a thump on the hood and what is it? - a coiled rattlesnake ready to strike! She reports that had she not followed the warning to slow down, the snake would have come through her window and into the cab of her truck.
Pat blew the soulfire as she'd been shown and the snake disintegrated.

Snakes have a dreadful fear of falling and contrary to what you've seen in the movies - they don't hang out of trees or jump off mountains to strike at cars. The snake was forced to behave in a fashion that is contrary to its nature. File this under bad guys at play.

During the last week, I've had two would be Old One impostors trying to gather intel (unsuccessfully). Rob had an abduction attempt that was dealt out by his security detail. Two other Advens report anomalous events as well.

There are three markers I employ in the determination of things. These are the story told by the carvings (and there have been new carvings arriving for the last two months), the geometry's employed with the carvings, and information from the Revelation Code. View these as crosshairs in a scope. When all three intersect at the same place - you have a certainty of a significant event. What it is arrives in the story line from the three sources. At this moment, those crosshairs are so aligned.

The expected moment is for the mortal planetary prince to cross dimensional lines as a 'son of man' setting the stage for the events that must follow.

Linkword = SON OF MAN

REV 1 13 AND IN THE MIDST OF THE SEVEN CANDLESTICKS ONE LIKE UNTO THE SON OF MAN CLOTHED WITH A GARMENT DOWN TO THE FOOT AND GIRT ABOUT THE PAPS WITH A GOLDEN GIRDLE

REV 14 14 AND I LOOKED AND BEHOLD A WHITE CLOUD AND UPON THE CLOUD ONE SAT LIKE UNTO THE SON OF MAN HAVING ON HIS HEAD A GOLDEN CROWN AND IN HIS HAND A SHARP SICKLE

DAN 7 13 I SAW IN THE NIGHT VISIONS AND BEHOLD ONE LIKE THE SON OF MAN CAME WITH THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN AND CAME TO THE ANCIENT OF DAYS AND THEY BROUGHT HIM NEAR BEFORE HIM

Rev 1:13 establishes the relationship with the Seven Churches. Rev 14:14 sets the stage for an association with what Daniel calls 'the clouds of heaven' and the resulting 'harvest' (rapture). Today, clouds of heaven are commonly referred to as ufos..

The first significant event that will be open to common perception will arrive with this verse.

REV 1 7 BEHOLD HE COMETH WITH CLOUDS AND EVERY EYE SHALL SEE HIM AND THEY ALSO WHICH PIERCED HIM AND ALL KINDREDS OF THE EARTH SHALL WAIL BECAUSE OF HIM EVEN SO AMEN

Do rattlesnakes fall into the garden variety definition of 'piercing'? We'll see.
