During my past life regression along with my spiritual portrait, my research on Mary Magdalene and my conversations with various mediums and historians there is one group of people who keep cropping up time and time again, The Knights Templar.
The Templars were founded around the year 1118 as an order of fighting monks whose job was to protect the pilgrims visiting the Holy land. It must be noted here however that no evidence has suggested the Templars actually carried out this particular task. Moreover, there have been suggestions their actual task was for something else like excavation work. It’s also important to note that the order began with only nine members for the first nine or so years which would have made it very difficult to cover all pilgrim routes to the Holy land.
By 1127 the Templars had established themselves in Western Europe with countries including Portugal, France, England and Scotland. The church had even officially recognized them as a religious order dedicated to the defence of Christendom. Further down the line in 1139, a papal bull was issued that the Templars would owe allegiance to the pope only, making them immune to political and religious authorities.

However during the latter part of the 12th century the Templars were facing serious problems. The Templars enormous wealth and influence which had built up over a number of years brought them into growing opposition to the Church and worldly monarchs. The Knights Templar were accused of many heinous crimes including denial of an immortal Christ, ritual murders and of worshipping a bearded head called Baphomet to name but a few.
It all came to a head in 1307 on Friday, October 13th, Jacques de Molay, Grand Master of the Templars and sixty of his Knights were imprisoned in Paris. In 1312 the pope officially dissolved the Knights Templar Order and then in 1314, after Jacques de Molay was burned alive, it seemed that the Knights Templar had ceased to exist, yet the Order continued in other countries under various names.
The Templars venerated Mary Magdalene and to them she represented Sophia, the female side of god. The word Sophia means “wisdom” and many people believe Sophia came to earth in the body of Mary Magdalene herself. During the Templars inquisition, one accusation amongst many was the worshipping of a goat head called “Baphomet”. It was not apparent why the Templars would worship such a thing until you apply something called the Atbash Cipher. This code was used as early as 500BC and was found to be used in some of the Dead Sea scrolls. When applied to the name Baphomet we get the name Sophia!
Relic and Cathars

Whilst on the subjects of heads, the Templars also had in their possession an interesting relic in the form of a female silver head containing a couple of skull bones of a small woman. It also came with a label on which read the following; Caput LVIII M (Head 58M). At first glance the message is a just a random few numbers and a letter but when you add five with eight you get thirteen. The letter M is the thirteen letter of the alphabet and together with the other M we have a double hit. Could this female relic have been the bones of Mary Magdalene? It is also noteworthy that the bones themselves were wrapped in a red cloth, the colour most associated with Mary Magdalene.
With the worship of Sophia through the disguise of Baphomet along with the 58M female headed relic we can possibly assume that the Templars regarded the importance of Sophia and acknowledge her human existence in the form of Mary Magdalene. It would not be the first time that both Sophia and Mary Magdalene have had a connection. In one Gnostic Gospel called The Pisits Sophia, Mary Magdalene plays a central role. It contains 46 questions in the dialogues of which 31 are asked by Mary Magdalene herself.
The Templars also had a connection with the Cathars, a Christian dualist or Gnostic movement which arrived in France around the 12th century. Like the Templars, they held Mary Magdalene in very high esteem calling her the femine aspect of the divine and recognised her equal status with Jesus. It is also known that at least one of the nine founders of the Templars was a Cathar. The 4th grand master of the Templars, Bertrand de Blanchefort was from a Cathar family.
Cathar Templar connection

Another question which arises is why this particular area in the south of France is the focal point for both the Cathars and Templars. Could it be argued that the Magdalene arrival in France after the crucifixion set the motion of the events that followed? It is most likely that the Cathars had in their possession Gnostic Texts amongst their many other documents and may have had knowledge of the Magdalene voyage itself.
I strongly believe that the Templars were set up or influenced by the Cathars themselves with the objective to befriend the Church and gaining their trust, a kind of double agents type. One of the nine founding members, Hugues de Pagens, had ties with many Cathar people and possibly had been a Cathar himself. Indeed his genealogy points to Cathar heartland and another member, Godfrey de Saint-Omer appears to have been a relative of his. Their mission to protect the pilgrims from the holyland had simply been a “smoke screen” for their main intentions and activites.
Being just a normal Cathar would simply have got them nowhere, even before the Templar establishment they were already being hounded out including the burning at the stakes of Cathars in Orleans in 1022. They already had in their possession gospels and documents of Gnostic nature and more than likely had the Magdalene relics too. There was far more to be discovered in the Holyland which they could attain and keep. Also the Cathars knew the church at one point would come down hard on them, it was just a matter of time. What the Cathars needed was an army of knights to gain entry into the holyland and then to guard their sacred documents, relics and even their own beliefs and history.

In 1208 began a series of wars known as the Cathar crusade which was organised and directed by the Catholic Church on the orders of Pope Innocent lll. From the first seize in Beziers on July 22nd 1209 (St Mary Magdalene’s feast day), to the last Cathar foothold at the Chateau of Montsegur, the Cathars were hounded out, burned at the stake and slaughtered in what many people call the first genocide of Europe.
During the crusades against the Cathars, the Templars had no choice but to remain neutral. If they sided with the Catholic Church then they would be fighting against their own people, against similar beliefs and even possibly their own families. On the other hand if they sided with the Cathars then it would put the order at risk and everything they protected including their connections with the “heretics” along with sacred documents and treasures would be revealed. The only logical thing to do was to stay neutral although it has been reported that the Templars did provide a haven for Cathar refugees and the increase of Cathars which joined the Templar ranks at that period of time rose sharply.
At the last stronghold of Cathars at Montsegur in 1244, a few Cathars did manage to escape the oncoming slaughter and with them they carried some form of treasure. It could well be that these Cathars and their treasure, ended up with the Templars and thus their treasure were safe and protected……...for now.
Fall of the Templars
Postcard Port of La Rochelle, France
In the aftermath of the Cathar crusade the Templars remained protected and their influence and wealth was still growing. However by the turn of the 14th century the Templars had also attracted many powerful enemies, one of whom would lay the first stone to the demise of the Templar order, or at least, so he thought. Philippe lV of France had become envious and angry with the Templars, he owed them a great deal of money, thought they were arrogant and unruly ,no control was over the Templars as they only answered to the pope and all this on Philippe’s own territory. This all gave reason for Philippe to use heresy as an excuse to get rid of the order.
After the kidnapping and subsequent death of Pope Boniface Vlll along with the poison of another, namely Benedict Xl, Philippe conveniently secured the election of one Clement V, who was at the time archbishop of Bordeaux. This allowed Philippe to get what he wanted, the suppression of the Templars because after all, Clement V was indebted to him for making him pope.
From that moment on the Templars had become wanted men and many were tortured and interrogated on October 13th, 1307. Philippe may have quashed the Templars but their treasure had eluded him, nothing was found. It is more than probable that the Templars knew of this impending danger and took their treasure of wealth, sacred documents and relics and sent them to their naval base at La Rochelle were they transported all this onto around eighteen galleys ready to disembark. What happened to those ships remains a mystery, maybe some ended up in Portugal or more so to Scotland, the only monarchy in the 14 century Europe that did not recognize the authority of the Catholic Church.
Meanwhile the Templars were officially dissolved in 1312, despite the lack of evidence and information that Philippe had accused them of. In 1314 the grand master if the Templars, Jacque de Molay was roasted to death over a burning fire. Philippe had even gone to lengths after to persuade other monarchs to follow his lead to make sure no Templar survived but this mainly fell on deaf ears, particularly in Scotland. Philippe himself died of mystery causes at the end of 1314, the same year as he ordered the death of Molay. Indeed one month after the burning of the grand master, Pope clement was dead. It was reported that Molay had called his persecutors to join him before God’s court within a year while he was about to be burned!
Las escaleras de los Museos Vaticanos son una obra de arte más que añadir a la Capilla Sixtina, el Laocoonte o los Dalí y Miró que a menudo pasan desapercibidos, porque todo el mundo sigue las flechas hacia la gran obra pictórica de Miguel Ángel.
Escalera de Bramante del Vaticano
Esta increíble escalera que en un genial efecto óptico parece que no va a terminar nunca es obra de Donato d’Angelo Bramante, que ha pasado a la posteridad como Bramante. Vivió a caballo entre los siglos XV y XVI, y fue uno de los arquitectos italianos más reconocido, por ser el ideólogo de la Basílica de San Pedro.Bramante fue además quien introdujo el Renacimiento en Milán y realizó obras tan hipnóticas como esta escalera que emula las espirales del ADN. El efecto “infinito” lo consigue la doble hélice enrollada hacia la derecha. En realidad, cuando nos asomamos a la escalera, si nos fijamos, vemos que en realidad no es una sóla escalera, sino dos enroscadas. Una de ellas es para bajar y otra para subir.
La escalera se encuentra a la salida de los Museos Vaticanos, en realidad, es la última obra de arte que se contempla en las galería y el visitante se lleva de recuerdo esta espiral sin fin. Si la escalera está practicamente vacía, como en la foto, es más difícil de descubrirle el truco al artista, pero si circula gente, que es lo habitual, el secreto está en fijarnos en que una de las espirales está llena de personas – la de bajada – y otra casi vacía, – la de subida -, porque está cerrada al público.
806. Juan 16:21 La mujer cuando da a luz, tiene dolor, porque ha llegado su HORA; pero después que ha dado a luz un niño, ya no se acuerda de la angustia, por el gozo de que haya nacido un hombre en el mundo.
Alchemy refers to a range of philosophies and ancient practices which seek to prepare or develop the "elixir of Life" or "immortality" or "longevity" using the philosophers' stone, accomplish the transmutation of base substances into gold, and attain ultimate wisdom. Many alchemical sources treat the various substances, equipment and processes used in alchemical workshops in an allegorical sense, as metaphors for a spiritualdiscipline. Alchemy, in its physical procedures and investigations can be viewed as a protoscience, the precursor to modern chemistry, having provided many procedures, equipment and names of substances which are still in use.
In light of the above there seems little doubt that in general and in the present astronomical context in particular, Spira Solaris qualifies to be described numerically as "the One and the Many," the "One and the All," "the Alpha and the Omega," and also (from The Chaldean Oracles): "Fountain of Fountains, and of All Fountains, The Matrix of all Things." ..... Pythagoras said the sacred Tetractys is: ` the spring having the roots of ever-flowing nature.' .... The four parts of the Decad, this perfect number, are called number, monad, power and cube. And the interweavings and minglings of these in the origin of growth are what naturally completes nascent number; for when a power of a power; and a cube is multiplied on a cube, it is the power of a cube; and when a cube is multiplied on a cube, the cube of a cube; thus all numbers, from which arise the genesis of what arises, are seven: number, monad, power, cube, power of a power, power of a cube, and cube of a cube. ..... We have seen that the whole nature of things, all the essential properties of physis, were believed by the Pythagoreans to be contained in the tetractys of the decad; and it now appears that, just as we should expect, this ' fountain of ever-flowing nature' contains the periodic movement of life, evolving out of unity and reverting to unity again, in the recurrent revolution of a wheel of birth. It embodies the fundamental Dionysiac representation of palingenesia. But there is something more in it than this. Pythagoras inherited the music of Orpheus, as well as the reincarnation doctrine of Dionysus. From the Orphics he inherited also the doctrine of the fall of the soul from its first perfect state of union with the divine, its degradation into the darkness of this life and of the underworld, and its final restoration to peace and unity. Now, on the model of this doctrine of the fall of the soul, the Pythagorean philosophy must hold that all existence proceeds out of the One and returns to it again; and that the One alone is perfect, while the manifold world of visible body is a turbid medium of appearance, in which the one truth is half-revealed and half-concealed, as the divine soul is manifest in the flesh and yet obscured by it and degraded. There is thus, inherent in the representation handed down from Orphism to Pythagoras, not only the primitive wheel of birth, but another aspect of the movement of life, which is best described as a processional movement out of unity into plurality, out of light into darkness. This movement, also, must be revealed in the nature of numbers, and contained in the tetractys. Pythagoras found it in the procession of numerical series, the study of which he originated, thereby rounding the science of number. It is practically certain, also, that in music he discovered the ratios of the octave, the fifth, and the fourth, contained in the harmonic proportion 12: 8: 6. Now a progression like those contained in the tetractys of Plato's worldsoul --the series, 1: 2: 4: 8, 1: 3: 9: 27– is what the Pythagoreans called an harmonia; it is a continuous entity knit together by a principle of unity running through it, namely the logos or ratio (1/2 or 1/3) which links every term to its predecessor by the same bond. Both series, moreover, radiate from the One, which in Pythagorean arithmetic was not itself a number, but the source in which the whole nature of all numbers was gathered up and implicit. When we note, further, that every number is not only a many, but also one number, we can see how Pythagoras would find the whole movement of cosmic evolution contained in the procession of series, in which the One passes out of itself into a manifold, yet without losing all its unity, and a return from the many to the One is secured by that bond of proportion which runs, backwards and forwards, through the whole series and links it into a ' harmony.' It is thus that we must understand the doctrine that ' the whole Heaven is harmony and number.' The processional movement of physis is modelled upon that of soul, which falls from its first state of union with the divine, but yet remains linked to the One life by mysterious bonds, and can return to it again, purified by music. ...... As for the "geometric figure", that we may already have (whether applicable here or not) and although the concept of "organic motion" may strike some modern readers as strange, it is nevertheless an underlying feature in many ancient major works--the Timaeus of Plato especially. Here it may also be observed that by expressing the exponents of this short section of the Phi-series planetary framework in thirds, the sets [3, 6, 9 , [4, 8, 12] and [6, 12, 18] are also apparent--sets that may or may not be considered further with respect to other passages in Plato, etc. ...... It is in the same fashion that the Timaeus also tries to give a physical account of how the soul moves its body; the soul, it is there said, is in movement, and so owing to their mutual implication moves the body also. After compounding the soul-substance out of the elements and dividing it in accordance with the harmonic numbers, in order that it may possess a connate sensibility for 'harmony' and that the whole may move in movements well attuned, the Demiurge bent the straight line into a circle; this single circle he divided into two circles united at two common points; one of these he subdivided into seven circles. All this implies that the movements of the soul are identified with the local movements of the heavens. (Aristotle, On the Soul) ...... Mind is the monad, science or knowledge the dyad (because it goes undeviatingly from one point to another), opinion the number of the plane, sensation the number of the solid; the numbers are by him expressly identified with the Forms themselves or principles, and are formed out of the elements; now things are apprehended either by mind or science or opinion or sensation, and these same numbers are the Forms of things. Some thinkers, accepting both premises, viz. that the soul is both originative of movement and cognitive, have compounded it of both and declared the soul to be a self-moving number. (Aristotle, On the Soul) ...... Thus that in the soul which is called mind (by mind I mean that whereby the soul thinks and judges) is, before it thinks, not actually any real thing. For this reason it cannot reasonably be regarded as blended with the body: if so, it would acquire some quality, e.g. warmth or cold, or even have an organ like the sensitive faculty: as it is, it has none. It was a good idea to call the soul 'the place of forms', though (1) this description holds only of the intellective soul, and (2) even this is the forms only potentially, not actually. (Aristotle, On the Soul) ..... there will be a need for several sciences. The first and most important of them is likewise that which treats of pure numbers--not numbers concreted in bodies, but the whole generation of the series of odd and even, and the effects which it contributes to the nature of things. When all this has been mastered, next in order comes what is called by the very ludicrous name mensuration, but is really a manifest assimilation to one another of numbers which are naturally dissimilar, effected by reference to areas. Now to a man who can comprehend this, it will be plain that this is no mere feat of human skill, but a miracle of God's contrivance. Next, numbers raised to the third power and thus presenting an analogy with three-dimensional things. Here again he assimilates the dissimilar by a second science, which those who hit on the discovery have named stereometry [the gauging of solids], a device of God's contriving which breeds amazement in those who fix their gaze on it and consider how universal nature molds form and type by the constant revolution of potency and its converse about the double in the various progressions. The first example of this ratio of the double in the advancing number series is that of 1 to 2; double of this is the ratio of their second powers [ 4 ], and double of this again the advance to the solid and tangible, as we proceed from 1 to 8 [ 1, 2, 2^2, 2^3]; the advance to a mean of the double, that mean which is equidistant from lesser and greater term [the arithmetical], or the other mean [the harmonic] which exceeds the one term and is itself exceeded by the other by the same fraction of the respective terms--these ratios of 3 : 2 and 4 : 3 will be found as means between 6 and 2: why, in the potency of the mean between these terms [ 6 x 2 ], with its double sense, we have a gift from the blessed choir of the Muses to which mankind owes the boon of the play of consonance and measure, with all they contribute to rhythm and melody. So much, then, for our program as a whole. But to crown it all, we must go on to the generation of things divine, the fairest and most heavenly spectacle God has vouchsafed to the eye of man. And: believe me, no man will ever behold that spectacle without the studies we have described, and so be able to boast that he has won it by an easy route. Moreover, in all our sessions for study we are to relate the single fact to its species; there are questions to be asked and erroneous theses to be refuted. We may truly say that this is ever the prime test, and the best a man can have; as for tests that profess to be such but are not, there is no labor so fruitlessly thrown away as that spent on them. We must also grasp the accuracy of the periodic times and the precision with which they complete the various celestial motions, and this is where a believer in our doctrine that soul is both older and more divine than body will appreciate the beauty and justice of the saying that ' all things are full of gods ' and that we have never been left unheeded by the forgetfulness or carelessness of the higher powers. There is one observation to be made about all such matters. If a man grasps the several questions aright, the benefit accruing to him who thus learns his lesson in the proper way is great indeed; if he cannot, 'twill ever be the better course to call on God. Now the proper way is this--so much explanation is unavoidable. To the man who pursues his studies in the proper way, all geometric constructions, all systems of numbers, all duly constituted melodic progressions, the single ordered scheme of all celestial revolutions, should disclose themselves, and disclose themselves they will, if, as I say, a man pursues his studies aright with his mind's eye fixed on their single end. As such a man reflects, he will receive the revelation of a single bond of natural interconnection between all these problems. If such matters are handled in any other spirit, a man, as I am saying, will need to invoke his luck. We may rest assured that without these qualifications the happy will not make their appearance in any society; this is the method, this the pabulum, these the studies demanded; hard or easy, this is the road we must tread.

The height of the Statue of Liberty is 111′-1″ from bottom of foot to top of head. The 7 rays on the crown and the 11 points of the base star echo the proportions of the Great Pyramid’s 7:11 height to base proportion. The superb book Talisman by Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval convincingly shows this goddess is actually the Egyptian Isis.

Troyes is the former capital of Champagne and is a perfect short trip visit from Paris. At just an hour and a half by train it can be a day trip but a couple of days and an overnight stay would be better because there’s so much to see and do in this lovely, vibrant city.
A town that is shaped like a Champagne cork in Champagne?
Troyes is an ancient city, once a Roman town with a direct road from Milan and onwards to Boulogne-sur-Mer on the Opal Coast in the north of France – the route for the invasion of Britain. Later the rich and powerful Counts of Champagne built a palace in Troyes and it was a prosperous place that attracted merchants from all over Europe. The counts fortified their town and though at that time Champagne didn’t even exist, the walls took the form of a Champagne cork.
Following a huge fire in 1524 that destroyed many of the ancient buildings that were constructed from wood, new brick buildings were erected and many of them remain to this day. Indeed the inhabitants of Troyes lived in these buildings pretty much as they had been for hundreds of years right up until the 1950s. It was a decade when the town council went on a bit of a renovation rampage to improve conditions since many of the old buildings had no bathrooms and poor hygiene conditions.
Fortunately they didn’t destroy too much and visiting Troyes is like stepping back in time. Every street seems to have its quota of half-timbered houses and there are cobbled streets and tiny alleyways that create a mesmerising maze in the centre of the old town of Troyes. In the little ruelle des Chats (Cats Alley) you’ll see it is so narrow that the houses lean in and touch via a central gutter at the top and cats could cross from houses on both sides of the roads. At the side of the office of the Mutuelle Societe at 111 rue Emile Zola you can enter a gate and at the back you’ll discover a stunning renaissance house looking exactly as it did when it was built. At the Cour du Mortier d’or, the ancient timber frames still bear the workman’s trademarks.
Everywhere you go here you’ll discover traces of history from hundreds of years ago, quaint, quirky and irresistibly charming…
