The Lunar Eclipse And Thoughts On Ramtha’s Eclipsophobia

Tue, 21 Dec 2010 06:23:22 +0000

You know, I think it’s quite unsatisfactory that the moon would pick such an early hour in the morning to eclipse. People have jobs, deadlines and other obligations preventing us from staying up all evening. If I could guess, the channeled spirit of “Ramtha” had something to do with this. It’s about time we begin … Continue reading The Lunar Eclipse And Thoughts On Ramtha’s Eclipsophobia
