Synchronicities, Stonehenge, and electronic smog were among the fascinating topics explored this past week on Coast to Coast AM. And, here at the C2C website, we told you about some intriguing USOs, the discovery of an ancient Mayan ritual cave filled with artifacts, and several stories about strange events that seemed to suggest some kind of divine intervention. Check out our round-up of highlights from the past week ... In Coast You Missed It.
The question of who built the megalithic site Stonehenge was explored on Saturday night's edition of C2C as second-generation dowser and authority on earth energies Maria Wheatley detailed her fascinating quest to find an answer to this mystery. She revealed how her dowsing work led her to the discovery of an ancient race of long-skulled people who were behind not only that monument, but numerous other similar iconic sites around the world. These creators, Wheatley said, were technologically advanced and used Stonehenge as means of tapping into an Earth energy system.
Weirdness on the water caught our attention this week in the form of two stories featuring classic paranormal phenomena. In Northern Ireland, a woman spotted two eerie glowing lights submerged underwater. While some have suggested that the oddities were simply divers, no one has stepped forward to lay claim to being the source of the USOs yet. Then, over in Scotland, Nessie made two appearances over the course of five days. The legendary alleged denizen of the deep first emerged from the water to surprise an on-site witness and then appeared on the Loch Ness webcam.
One of the hottest topics in the world of the paranormal over the last few years is the phenomenon of synchronicity or meaningful coincidences. On Monday night's program, theoretical physicist Sky Nelson-Issacs discussed how these experience may represent a state of optimal functioning and critical thinking which he called being 'in the flow.' By recognizing synchronicities and what they mean to one's life, he posited, people can harness the phenomenon to dramatically improve their lives. Nelson-Isaacs also shared a technique that C2C listeners can use to get into this state of mind.
This past week saw an almost unsettling number of 'divine' stories pop up in the news, beginning with a church fire in West Virginia in which the building was destroyed, yet all of the Bibles survived the inferno unscathed. A few days later, a video from Turkey showed a proverbial guardian angel appear seemingly out of nowhere to save an unwitting shopkeeper from being smashed by a truck. And, finally, an artist in Italy photographed a jaw-dropping sunset that bore an uncanny resemblance to the Christ the Redeemer statue. We're not quite sure why so many stories of this kind turned up in the headlines this week, but we really hope it's not some kind of harbinger of things to come.
Although we can all appreciate being able to grab a Wi-Fi signal seemingly anywhere we go, rarely do we stop and wonder what kind of invisible pollution, so to speak, we may be swimming in every day. On Thursday night's program, Roger Tolces provided insights on this proverbial 'electronic smog' that is already permeating homes and workplaces everywhere thanks to things like tablets, and other gadgetry. He specifically warned about radiation emanating from routers and cautioned that apartment buildings which contain several of the devices are particularly troubling since they magnify the problem.
Archaeologists around the world were celebrating this week when news emerged out of Mexico of a truly astounding discovery: a long-lost Mayan ritual cave that contained a wealth of artifacts believed to have been untouched by human hands for nearly 1,000 years. Remarkably, the find occurred by accident as a team of researchers were actually looking for an underground water source considered sacred by the Mayans. Meanwhile, an almost reverse version of this story took place in San Francisco when a treasure hunter looking for a box of riches long rumored to be hidden at Golden Gate Park thought he hit pay dirt, but wound up digging up an elaborate hoax.
