UFOs in Trumbull County, Crop Circles in Chilicothe, Ohio, and more--Unexplained

ohio crop circles 2.jpg

Our speaker for this Wednesday's UFO program (7-8:30 in the Porter Room) has told me that he intends to focus in particular on three unexplained Ohio UFO cases:

A historical account of UFO sitings in Trumbull County involving 911 calls and communications between law enforcement officers. The original tapes of these conversations are mysteriously missing and it took two years for the backups to turn up.

An event involving a Crop Circle in Chilicothe, Ohio at the Hopewell Indian Mounds. This one is from last September.

And a third focus case will involve UFO sitings in the area of the old Nike missile base in Cleveland.

Don't forget to bring your own experience, you will have a chance to talk with Tom and the group about it and you can also turn it in to them in written form to be added to their database.

Register if you haven't already, in person at any public service desk, by calling 440-250-5460, or online by clicking HERE.

Check out the display of books on UFOs, Alien Life, Time Travel, etc. at the front of the library--and I'll see you there.

EDGE readers--want to JOIN MUFON or the Cleveland Ufology Project? A number of people have asked about this since our program last year.

Evil and the Archetype of Evil: Lucifer, Satan, the Devil...Reading for long cold winter nights...

Now that the holidays are behind us and we’re staring down a long cold road, I thought I’d begin making some suggestions for reading on long wintry nights.


Initial installment: some books dealing with the existence of Evil in the world.

 

 

Linda Street: Healing From the Heart

Linda's portrait sylized.png

Some of you have been asking me of late, "What is Reiki?" I'll admit my own understanding of it has been very vague. If you're like me, you may have thought, "Isn't it some kind of massage or alternative therapy?"

And if you thought this, the truth is you'd be -- well, let’s say you'd be in the right neighborhood.

Based on some admittedly quick research, Reiki is a methodology that heals by redirecting the energy force that animates us, and sometimes by removing blockages in the flow of that energy. In general, sickness: physical, psychological, spiritual, is attributed to something being wrong with this energy.

So, when you read about Reiki, you come across a lot about the Oriental concepts of Qi and the Chakras, and about the more universal idea of an Energy Body.

You also realize that there's a whole other area of Reiki that appeals to higher forces: to diety, to angels, and to other kinds of "higher consciousness" for help in correcting problems with the flow of this energy. Aligning your energy with the energy that pervades the universe seems to be the key to overall health and well being.

But don't take it from me; this is just me rambling on.

Join us Thursday, October 25, when you can hear it from the mouth of an Expert. Linda Street, Kudalini Reiki Master and Teacher comes to us with a background in Usui Reiki, Tibetan System Natural Healing, Integrated Energy Therapy, Diamond Light Therapy and more.

She’ll speak to us about the Heart Center, guide us in the creation of Aphorisms, and lead us in a brief Meditation. There will be plenty of time for Questions and AnswersYou’ll have an opportunity to Enter to Win a chance to participate in a demonstration of Linda's healing process during the course of the program. Refreshments will be served.

Register in person, online using our event calendar, or call 440-250-5460.

 

 


 

What is MUFON?

Ohio.jpg

I talk to a lot of patrons during the course of my work here at Porter Public Library and because we do frequent progrmming on the topic of UFOs and alien life, I'm often asked, "What is MUFON"?

MUFON stands for Mutual UFO Network, which is an American Non-profit organization devoted to investigating UFO sightings. MUFON is currently headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio and has over 3000 world-wide members,  The large group is made up of a number of regional and state chapters. Our frequent speaker, Thomas Wertman, is an investigator with MUFON.

If you watched the TV series X-files, you may remember members of MUFON involved with Fox Muldur and Dana Scully in more than one episode.

Check out the MUFON website at http://www.mufon.com and the Ohio chapter at http://www.mufonohio.com. There's also a nice article in wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MUFON.

Mind Over Matter

Hello to All:

Some of you have asked where you can find information on occult knowledge and paranormal phenomena in the library collection.   You can find most of this material in the 130s area.  This would include anything on ghosts, hauntings, spirit possession, etc.  Witchcraft and Wizardry is at 133.4.  Check out the 299 area for information on Wicca, Druidry and other ancient religions. Metaphysical philosophy and materials on the nature of "evil" are in the 110s. 

Check out this area and the 158s  for materials that explore the effect our thoughts have on material reality
