The Mysterious Connection Between Sirius and Human History

224

Since ancient times and across multiple civilizations, Sirius, the dog star, has been surrounded by a mysterious lore. Esoteric teachings of all ages have invariably attributed to Sirius a special status and the star’s importance in occult symbolism is an attestation of that fact. What makes Sirius so special? Is it simply due to the fact that it is the brightest star in the sky? Or is it also because humanity has an ancient, mysterious connection with it? This article looks at the importance of Sirius throughout History and secret societies and will describe the symbolism surrounding it.

Sirius is located in the constellation Canis Major – also known as the Big Dog – and is therefore known as the “dog star”. It is over twenty times brighter than our sun and is twice as massive. At night time, Sirius is the brightest star in the sky and its blue-white glare never failed to amaze stargazers since the dawn of time. No wonder Sirius has been revered by practically all civilizations. But is there more to Sirius than meets the eye?

Artifacts of ancient civilizations have revealed that Sirius was of a great importance in astronomy, mythology, and occultism. Mystery schools consider it to be “sun behind the sun” and, therefore, the true source of our sun’s potency. If our sun’s warmth keeps the physical world alive, Sirius is considered to keep the spiritual world alive. It is the “real light” shining in the East, the spiritual light, whereas the sun illuminates the physical world, which is considered to be a grand illusion.

Associating Sirius with the divine and even considering it as the home of humanity’s “great teachers” is not only embedded in the mythology of a few primitive civilizations: It is a widespread belief that has survived (and even intensified) to this day. We will look at the importance of Sirius in ancient times, analyze its prominence in secret societies and we will examine these esoteric concepts as they are translated in popular culture.

In Ancient Civilizations

In Ancient Egypt, Sirius was regarded as the most important star in the sky. In fact, it was astronomically the foundation of the Egyptians’ entire religious system. It was revered as Sothis and was associated with Isis, the mother goddess of Egyptian mythology. Isis is the female aspect of the trinity formed by herself, Osiris and their son Horus. Ancient Egyptians held Sirius in such a high regard that most of their deities were associated, in some way or another, with the star. Anubis, the dog-headed god of death, had an obvious connection with the dog star and Toth-Hermes, the great teacher of humanity, was also esoterically connected with the star.

The Egyptian calendar system was based on the heliacal rising of Sirius that occurred just before the annual flooding of the Nile during summer. The star’s celestial movement was also observed and revered by ancient Greeks, Sumerians, Babylonians and countless other civilizations. The star was therefore considered sacred and its apparition in the sky was accompanied with feasts and celebrations. The dog star heralded the coming of the hot and dry days of July and August, hence the popular term “the dog days of summer”.

Several occult researchers have claimed that the Great Pyramid of Giza was built in perfect alignment with the stars, especially Sirius. The light from these stars was said to be used in ceremonies of Egyptian Mysteries.

“This ancient people (Egyptians) knew that once every year the Parent Sun is in line with the Dog Star. Therefore, the Great Pyramid was so constructed that, at this sacred moment, the light of the Dog Star fell upon the square “Stone of God” at the upper end of the Great Gallery, descending upon the head of the high priest, who received the Super Solar Force and sought through his own perfected Solar Body to transmit to other Initiates this added stimulation for the evolution of their Godhood. This then was the purpose of the “`Stone of God,’ whereon in the Ritual, Osiris sits to bestow upon him (the illuminate) the Atf crown or celestial light.” “North and South of that crown is love,” proclaims an Egyptian hymn. “And thus throughout the teaching of Egypt the visible light was but the shadow of the invisible Light; and in the wisdom of the ancient country the measures of Truth were the years of the Most High.” [1. Marshall Adams, The Book of the Master]

Recent scientific discoveries relating to the Great Pyramid and its mysterious “air shafts” have lead researchers to further confirm the importance of Sirius within the pyramid.

A fascinating aspect of Sirius is the consistency of the symbolism and meanings attached to it. Several great civilizations have indeed associated Sirius with a dog-like figure and viewed the star as either the source or the destination of a mysterious force. In Chinese and Japanese astronomy, Sirius is known as the “star of the celestial wolf”. Several aboriginal tribes of North America referred to the star in canine terms: the Seri and Tohono O’odham tribes of the southwest describe the Sirius as a “dog that follows mountain sheep”, while the Blackfoot call it “Dog-face”. The Cherokee paired Sirius with Antares as a dog-star guardian of the “Path of Souls”. The Wolf (Skidi) tribe of Nebraska knew it as the “Wolf Star”, while other branches of knew it as the “Coyote Star”. Further north, the Alaskan Inuit of the Bering Strait called it “Moon Dog”. [2. J.B. Holberg, Sirius: Brightest Diamond in the Night Sky]

The Dogon Tribe and Atlantis

In 1971, the American author Robert Temple published a controversial book entitled The Sirius Mystery where he claimed that the Dogons (an ancient African tribe from Mali) knew details about Sirius that would be impossible to know without the use of telescopes. According to him, the Dogon understood the binary nature of Sirius, which is, in fact, composed of two stars named Sirius A and Sirius B. This lead Robert Temple to believe that the Dogons had “direct” connections with beings from Sirius. While some might say “you can’t be Sirius” (sorry), a great number of secret societies (who have historically held within their ranks some of the world’s most influential people) and belief systems teach about a mystic connection between Sirius and humanity.

In Dogon mythology, humanity is said to be born from the Nommo, a race of amphibians who were inhabitants of a planet circling Sirius. They are said to have “descended from the sky in a vessel accompanied by fire and thunder” and imparted to humans profound knowledge. This lead Robert Temple to theorize that the Nommos were extraterrestrial inhabitants of Sirius who traveled to earth at some point in the distant past to teach ancient civilizations (such as the Egyptians and Dogons) about the Sirius star system as well as our own solar system. These civilizations would then record the Nommos’ teachings in their religions and make them a central focus of their Mysteries.

The Dogon’s mythology system is strikingly similar to the ones of other civilizations such as the Sumerians, Egyptians, Israelites, and Babylonians as it includes the archetypal myth of a “great teacher from above”. Depending on the civilization, this great teacher is known as Enoch, Thoth or Hermes Trismegistus and is said to have taught humanity theurgic sciences. In occult traditions, it is believed that Thoth-Hermes had taught the people of Atlantis, which, according to legend, became the world’s most advanced civilization before the entire continent was submerged by the Great Deluge (accounts of a flood can be found in the mythologies of countless civilizations). Survivors from Atlantis traveled by boat to several countries, including Egypt, where they imparted their advanced knowledge. Occultists believe that the inexplicable resemblances between distant civilizations (such as the Mayas and the Egyptians) can be explained by their common contact with Atlanteans.

“Was the religious, philosophic, and scientific knowledge possessed by the priestcrafts of antiquity secured from Atlantis, whose submergence obliterated every vestige of its part in the drama of world progress? Atlantean sun worship has been perpetuated in the ritualism and ceremonialism of both Christianity and pagandom. Both the cross and the serpent were Atlantean emblems of divine wisdom. The divine (Atlantean) progenitors of the Mayas and Quichés of Central America coexisted within the green and azure radiance of Gucumatz, the “plumed” serpent. The six sky-born sages came into manifestation as centers of light bound together or synthesized by the seventh – and chief – of their order, the “feathered” snake. The title of “winged” or “plumed” snake was applied to Quetzalcoatl, or Kukulcan, the Central American initiate. The center of the Atlantean Wisdom-Religion was presumably a great pyramidal temple standing on the brow of a plateau rising in the midst of the City of the Golden Gates. From here the Initiate-Priests of the Sacred Feather went forth, carrying the keys of Universal Wisdom to the uttermost parts of the earth.

(…)

From the Atlanteans the world has received not only the heritage of arts and crafts, philosophies and sciences, ethics and religions, but also the heritage of hate, strife, and perversion. The Atlanteans instigated the first war; and it has been said that all subsequent wars were fought in a fruitless effort to justify the first one and right the wrong which it caused. Before Atlantis sank, its spiritually illumined Initiates, who realized that their land was doomed because it had departed from the Path of Light, withdrew from the ill-fated continent. Carrying with them the sacred and secret doctrine, these Atlanteans established themselves in Egypt, where they became its first “divine” rulers. Nearly all the great cosmologic myths forming the foundation of the various sacred books of the world are based upon the Atlantean Mystery rituals.” [3. Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages]

Is Thoth-Hermes-Trismegistus the equivalent of the Dogon’s Nommos, who are believed to originate from Sirius? Ancient texts concerning Hermes describe him as a teacher of mysteries who “came from the stars”. Furthermore, Thoth-Hermes was directly connected with Sirius in Egyptian mythology.

“The dog-star: the star worshipped in Egypt and reverenced by the Occultists; by the former because its heliacal rising with the Sun was a sign of the beneficient inundation of the Nile, and by the latter because it is mysteriously associated with Toth-Hermes, god of wisdom, and Mercury, in another form. Thus Sothis-Sirius had, and still has, a mystic and direct influence over the whole living heaven, and is connected with almost every god and goddess. It was “Isis in the heaven” and called Isis-Sothis, for Isis was “in the constellation of the dog”, as is declared on her monuments. Being connected with the Pyramid, Sirius was, therefore, connected with the initiations which took place in it.” [4. Helena Blavatsky, Theosophical Glossary]

“The Trismegistic treatise ‘The Virgin of the World’ from Egypt refers to ‘the Black Rite’, connected with the ‘black’ Osiris, as the highest degree of secret initiation possible in the ancient Egyptian religion – it is the ultimate secret of the mysteries of Isis. This treatise says Hermes came to earth to teach men civilization and then again ‘mounted to the stars’, going back to his home and leaving behind the mystery religion of Egypt with its celestial secrets which were some day to be decoded.” [5. Robert Temple, The Sirius Mystery]

Interpreting the mythology of ancient cultures is not an exact science and connections are inherently difficult to prove. However, the symbolic link between Sirius and occult knowledge has constantly appeared throughout History and has seamlessly traveled through the ages. In fact, it is as revered today as it was millenniums ago. Modern secret societies such as the Freemasons, the Rosicrucians and the Golden Dawn (which are considered to be Hermetic Orders due to the fact their teachings are based on those of Hermes Trismegistus) all attribute to Sirius the utmost importance. An educated look at their symbolism provides a glimpse at the profound connection between Sirius and occult philosophy.

Sirius in Occult Symbolism and Secret Societies

To claim that Sirius is “important” to Hermetic Orders would be a gross understatement. The dog star is nothing less than the central focus of the teachings and symbolism of secret societies. The ultimate proof of this fact: many secret societies are actually named after the star.

In the Tarot

The seventeenth numbered major trump is called Les Étoiles, (French for The Star), and portrays a young girl kneeling with one foot in water and the other on and, her body somewhat suggesting the swastika. She has two urns, the contents of which she pours upon the land and sea. Above the girl’s head are eight stars, one of which is exceptionally large and bright. Count de Gébelin considers the great star to be Sothis or Sirius; the other seven are the sacred planets of the ancients. He believes the female figure to be Isis in the act of causing the inundations of the Nile which accompanied the rising of the Dog Star. The unclothed figure of Isis may well signify that Nature does not receive her garment of verdure until the rising of the Nile waters releases the germinal life of plants and flowers.

Hall, The Secret Teachings of all Ages]

In Freemasonry

In Masonic lodges, Sirius is known as the “Blazing Star” and a simple look at its prominence in Masonic symbolism reveals its utmost importance. The Masonic author William Hutchinson wrote about Sirius: “It is the first and most exalted object that demands our attention in the Lodge.” The same way the light of Sirius made its way into the Great Pyramid during initiations, it is symbolically present in Masonic lodges.

“The Ancient Astronomers saw all the great Symbols of Masonry in the Stars. Sirius glitters in our lodges as the Blazing Star.” [7. Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma]

“(The Blazing Star) originally represented SIRIUS, or the Dog-star, the forerunner of the inundation of the Nile; the God ANUBIS, companion of ISIS in her search for the body of OSIRIS, her brother and husband. Then it became the image of HORUS, the son of OSIRIS, himself symbolized also by the Sun, the author of the Seasons, and the God of Time; Son of ISIS, who was the universal nature, himself the primitive matter, inexhaustible source of Life, spark of uncreated fire, universal seed of all beings. It was HERMES, also, the Master of Learning, whose name in Greek is that of the God Mercury.” [8. Ibid.]

In Freemasonry, it is taught that the Blazing Star is a symbol of deity, of omnipresence (the Creator is present everywhere) and of omniscience (the Creator sees and knows all). Sirius is, therefore, the “sacred place” all Masons must ascend to: It is the source of divine power and the destination of divine individuals. This concept is often represented in Masonic art.

To achieve perfection, the initiate must successfully understand and internalize the dual nature of the world (good and evil; masculine and feminine; black and white, etc.) through alchemical metamorphosis. This concept is symbolically represented by the union of Osiris and Isis (the male and female principles) to give birth to Horus, the star-child, the Christ-like figure, the perfected man of Freemasonry – who is equated with the Blazing Star.

“The sun and moon … represent the two grand principles … the male and the female … both shed their light upon their offspring, the blazing star, or Horus.” [9. Ibid.]

The Egyptian hieroglyph representing Sirius has been esoterically interpreted to be a representation of this cosmic trinity.

The hieroglyph representing Sirius contains three elements: a “phallic” obelisk (representing Osiris), a “womb-like” dome (representing Isis) and a star (representing Horus).

This concept is so crucial for Freemasons, that it was embedded in some of the most important structures in the world.

The Washington Monument, an Egyptian obelisk representing the male principle, is directly connected with the dome of the Capitol, representing the female principle. Together they produce Horus an unseen energy represented by Sirius. (For more information, read the article Mystical Sites – The U.S. Capitol on The Vigilant Citizen).

As stated by Albert Pike above, the Egyptian god Horus and the star Sirius are often associated. In Masonic symbolism, the eye of Horus (or the All-Seeing Eye) is often depicted surrounded by the glittering of light of Sirius.

Given the symbolic correlation between the All-Seeing Eye and Sirius, the next image becomes self-explanatory.

The light behind the All-Seeing Eye on the American dollar bill is not from the sun, but from Sirius. The Great Pyramid of Giza was built in alignment with Sirius and is therefore shown shining right above the Pyramid. A radiant tribute to Sirius is therefore in the pockets of millions of citizens.

Order of the Eastern Star

The symbol of the OES is an inverted star, similar to the Blazing Star of Freemasonry.

Considered to be the “female version” of Freemasonry (although men can join), the Order of the Eastern Star (OES) is directly named after Sirius, the “Star rising from the East”. A “general public” explanation of the origins of the Order’s name claims it originated from the “Star of the East” that lead the Three Magis to Jesus Christ. A look into the occult meaning of the Order’s symbolism, however, makes it clear that the OES is a reference to Sirius, the most important star of Freemasonry, its parent organization.

Madame Blavatsky, Alice Bailey , and Theosophy

Helena Blavatsky and Alice Bailey, the two main figures associated with Theosophy, have both considered Sirius to be a source esoteric power. Blavatsky stated that the star Sirius exerts a mystic and direct influence over the entire living heaven and is linked with every great religion of antiquity.

Alice Bailey sees the Dog Star as the true “Great White Lodge” and believes it to be the home of the “Spiritual Hierarchy”. For this reason, she considers Sirius as the “star of initiation”.

“This is the great star of initiation because our Hierarchy (an expression of the second aspect of divinity) is under the supervision or spiritual magnetic control of the Hierarchy of Sirius. These are the major controlling influences whereby the cosmic Christ works upon the Christ principle in the solar system, in the planet, in man and in the lower forms of life expression. It is esoterically called the “brilliant star of sensitivity.” [10. Alice Bailey, Esoteric Astrology]

Not unlike most many esoteric writers, Bailey considers Sirius to have a great impact on human life.

“All that can be done here in dealing with this profound subject is to enumerate briefly some of the cosmic influences which definitely affect our earth, and produce results in the consciousness of men everywhere, and which, during the process of initiation, bring about certain specific phenomena.

First and foremost is the energy or force emanating from the sun Sirius. If it might be so expressed, the energy of thought, or mind force, in its totality, reaches the solar system from a distant cosmic centre via Sirius. Sirius acts as the transmitter, or the focalising centre, whence emanate those influences which produce self-consciousness in man.” [11. Alice Bailey, Initiation, Human and Solar]

Aleister Crowley, the A.A. and Kenneth Grant

In 1907, Crowley started his own occult order called the A.A. – short for Argentium Astrum, which can be translated to ‘The Order of the Silver Star’. The ‘Silver Star’ was, of course, a reference to Sirius. Even if Crowley almost always referred to the dog star in veiled terms, the whole of his magickal philosophy, from his development as a young Freemason through to his final years as the Head of the O.T.O, is wholly in accordance with the Sirian influence, which was identified and expressed by other writers of his era. His alleged contact with his Holy Guardian Angel that later led to the channeling of ‘Liber AL: The Book of the Law’ is believed to have originated from Sirius.

If Crowley used code words to describe Sirius, his protégé Kenneth Grant has explicitly and extensively written about the dog star. Throughout his numerous books, he often described Sirius as being a powerful center of magickal magnetic power. His belief that the star holds the central key to unlocking the mysteries of the Egyptian and Typhonian traditions has strengthened over time and became a central focus of his research. One of Grant’s most important and controversial thesis was his discovery of the “Sirius/Set current”, which is an extra-terrestrial dimension connecting Sirius, the Earth and Set, the Egyptian god of Chaos – who was later associated with Satan.

“Set is the initiator, the Opener of mans’ consciousness to the rays of the Undying God typified by Sirius – the Sun in the South.” [12. Kenneth Grant, The Magical Revival]

“Sirius, or Set, was the original “headless one” – the light of the lower region (the south) who was known (in Egypt) as An (the dog), hence Set-An (Satan), Lord of the infernal regions, the place of heat, later interpreted in a moral sense as “hell”. [13. Ibid.]

Although each occult philosophy describes Sirius in a slightly different matter, it is still consistently regarded as the “sun behind the sun”, the true source of occult power. It is perceived as the cradle of human knowledge and the belief of the existence of a strong connection between the star and planet Earth never seems to become outdated. Is there a true link between Sirius and Earth? Is the dog star an esoteric symbol representing something happening in the spiritual realm? Is it both? One thing is for sure, the cult of Sirius is not a “thing of the past” and is very alive today. An in-depth look at our popular culture, which is heavily influenced by occult symbolism, reveals numerous references to Sirius.

Sirius in Popular Culture

Direct references to Sirius in popular culture are too many to enumerate (e.g. see the name and the logo of the most important satellite radio in the world). A more interesting aspect of popular culture to analyze are the coded references to Sirius. Important movies have indeed made veiled yet profound references to the dog star (apparently intended to those “in the know”), where the star plays the role it was always given by the Mysteries: as an initiator and a divine teacher. Here are some examples.

In Disney’s Pinocchio, based on a story written by Freemason Carlo Collodi, Gepetto prays to the brightest star in the sky to have a “real boy”. The Blue Fairy (her color is a reference to Sirius’ light-blue glow) then descends from the heavens to give life to Pinocchio. Throughout the marionette’s quest to become a boy (an allegory for esoteric initiation), the Blue Fairy guides Pinocchio towards the “right path”. Sirius is therefore represented as a source of life, a guide and a teacher. (For more information see the article entitled The Esoteric Interpretation of Pinocchio on The Vigilant Citizen).

Sirius is therefore represented as a source of life, a guide, and a teacher. (For more information see the article entitled The Esoteric Interpretation of Pinocchio).

The theme song of the movie Pinocchio is also an ode to Sirius.

When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you

If your heart is in your dreams, no request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star as dreamers do

(Fate is kind, she brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing)

Like a bolt out of the blue, fate steps in and sees you thru
When you wish upon a star, your dreams come true

In Harry Potter, the character named Sirius Black is most likely a reference to Sirius B. (the “darker” star of Sirius’ binary system). He is Harry Potter’s godfather, which makes Sirius, once again, a teacher and a guide. The wizard can turn into a big black dog, another link with the “dog star”.

In the Truman Show, a spotlight – used to imitate the light of a star in Truman’s fake world – falls from the sky and nearly hits him. The label on the spotlight identifies it as Sirius. Truman’s encounter with Sirius gives him a glimpse of “true knowledge” and prompts his quest for truth. Sirius is therefore the “star of initiation”. It caused Truman to realize the limitations of the his studio world (our material world) and lead him to freedom (spiritual emancipation).

In Conclusion

From the dawn of civilization to modern times, from remote tribes of Africa to the great capitals of the modern world, Sirius was – and still is – seen as a life-giver. Despite the disparity between cultures and epochs, the same mysterious attributes are given to the dog star, which can lead us to ask: how can all these definitions synchronize so perfectly? Is there a common source to these myths about Sirius? The dog star is invariably associated with divinity and is regarded as a source of knowledge and power. These connections are particularly evident when one examines the teachings and the symbolism of secret societies, who have always taught about a mystical link with this particular celestial body. Is there a secret link between human evolution and Sirius? Unlocking this secret would mean unlocking one of humanity’s greatest mysteries.

After reading this so many doors opened. I feel a warmth of energy coursing through my brain, maybe its just dopemine, idk but its strong. like so many things have been made clear, so many doubts thrown away and replaced with truth. This is one of the most incredible pieces of literature I’ve ever read. Further persuading me to buy “secret teaching through the ages” and to read the bible again. Thank you for not being a “yes man” and dedicating your time to bring these concepts to a more easily understood nomenclature for the ignorant like myself to begin walking down a path of non ignorance. I don’t think i could have figured this stuff out on my own. I only just started reading non fiction ritually.

here we touch upon the doctrine of demons responisble for the great falling away preceding the return of Adonai for his elect. Enjoy mind-cuffs of the illuminati… the passing sense of inclusion you feel prior to the eternal alienation from the God Yahweh. Christ is the perfect fulfillment of Yahweh in bodily form… this is my axiom. In Christ all things that were not fulfilled have been fulfilled. Will you worship the dog-star god Ba’al or the true compass and restoration high-pries of humanity, Yeshua… Come quickly Lord Jesus!

But it’s the same thing though…you’ve fallen into the trap of worshipping details. Idolatry. Empty religion. Sirius is about the energy/process behind the details…it has no exclusive name, no one can own it. Christian labels are just a specific culture’s subjective nicknames for a phenomenon that is universal. It’s like how every culture on the planet has a way to communicate basic concepts like mother, father, food, animal, regardless of what language they speak. “Father” in French looks nothing like “father” in English, but they mean the same thing. If you were to fixate on details, you would think French-speaking people don’t have fathers just because their word for “father” is unrecognizable to you on the surface. That, of course, would be a ridiculous assumption to make, just like the one you made in your comment. The fact that you say, “Come quickly, Lord Jesus!” reveals that you do not… Read more »

Interesting fact – In the natal chart of the US (July 4th, Independence day is taken as the date of ”birth”) Sirius is in exact conjunction with the Sun. Other than that, in astrological terms, according to Ptolemy, Sirius ”gives honor, renown, wealth, ardor, faithfulness, devotion, passion and resentment, and makes its natives custodians, curators and guardians”…

The Star over Bethlehem which guided the Magi is another interesting imagery to add to this.

That was a great article. Thank you!

Santos Bonacci. The Sun and Sirius. Returning of the Golden Age https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ySvbtlSLrc

the 8 pointed star is the same symbol used for the ishtar goddess , and ishtar , is used as another symbol for babylon , and babylon , is the great city ….. the stars in the book of revelation ,are angels…. the fallen star , it is tide to one of the the 2 beasts in revelation . the big plan , the hiding plan of freemasonry , is in the book of revelation….. they say what the symbols mean ,on the media… but, the symbols don't meant that …. the symbols have a hidden meaning… they are masons….they will never tell you the truth… or let you know so easy their secrets…. if you think you know the meaning of the symbols…like the " eye of hours " you think you know….but still a symbol subliminal to you …. because you still don't know the real meaning of… Read more »

Masons have symbols, that’s it. Anybody can flaunt symbols, memorize their meaning from books, do rituals, form a club, and make up some secret handshakes. There’s no actual occult power unless a person has been Kundalini transformed, and Masons are too outer-directed to get very far with that.

I'm looking for connections to human life having come from Sirius. I have always been open minded about lifeforms from other planets, but recently my 13 yr old daughter was told by an intuitive healer ( who can heal past life trauma } I have experienced this myself. Last year she became super sensitive and extremely fatigued. The healer told her that she came from Sirius and hasn't had any past lives on earth. She will only be well when she lives up t her responsibilities. This did make sense to her, she felt instant relief and confirmation being told this. I don't have an agenda either way though I'm not surprised really. As a young girl, my daughter had been a very calm,always wise for her age, easy going child, then at 11 she woke up to things and went quite hysterical about the state of the world and… Read more »

This sounds exactly like me and my experiences growing up… I’m sick right now too…

study your soul gifts which are your gifts and talents and soul specialization and also soul energies and do something that is aligned to those and you will find peace and purpose in your life in using your special skills to help others

If you are feeling sick you need to cleanse your energy and auric field and remove j-seals from your chakras and other unnatural seals. Sickness comes from energy blocks in the energy system. Clear the blocks and you will get well fast. Blessings

Dear seeker of knowledge, I really really wish you were somehow still active on this site, receive an email or something because you posted this over 1 year ago! However I profoundly resonate with what you’ve written. I’m only 18 years old myself and have been extremely sensitive/plagued with illnesses mental and physical my entire life. I used to see lots of ghosts as a young child and have recently undergone some sort of spiritual enlightenment which has lead me to researching things like this more. I have also had disturbing frequent lucid dreams and nightmares ever since I could remember and often feel like I just cannot handle being on earth with these other people who are so callous and blind. Anyway without going into too much detail, I’ve also recently found that looking up to the stars in the night sky brings me an amazing feeling of awe,… Read more »

look up 3rd order soul specialization- that’s one of your soul gifts Its to do with helping souls into this world in birthing and also helping soul transition to the astral plane . a career in this area is in line with one of your gifts. look to find your other soul gifts and soul energies. blessings!

The Creator of Heaven and Earth YAHUAH is from Sirius B. Also, the Children of Yisra’el is from Sirius B. YAHSHUA and Mariam of Magdala is from Sirius B. It is the Constellation for Yisra’el.

I feel for your daughter, I'm 34 now, but have experienced what she has on many levels and still do. She isn't supposed to have likeminded others around her, since her purpose here on earth is to spread love and light. She needs to pay more attention to information hunting and less towards how others think and behave. It will never make sense to her even after she figures out why someone is acting the way they are, the reason still doesn't make sense. Animals have been closer to her than other humans and this is because of agenda-less thinking, animals are pure of heart an mind and therefor easier to interact with and understand. Humans are being conditioned to be less empathetic when in fact we are to become more empathetic, despite the emotional states attached. We are all here to raise the vibrational level of this planet, we… Read more »

Hi I do not know what exactly you are talking about.But all my life I have felt the exact same as you are talking saying. From my earliest memory I cried and said nobody loves.or I want to go home.I always have felt there was suppose to be something I needed to do.I still have not found what that was.I get what you mean about spreading love.But so far at 57 everywhere I turn my love and friendship is rejected.

I was told by a psychic teacher 30 years ago that I originally came from Sirius as a teacher but decided to stay here as a teacher. I have to say there are very few people who I can connect to on a spiritual level but when I do it is great to be on the same page with someone else. I know 15 year old girl who is gifted in what are seemingly other worldly talents. She feels so alienated from the other kids in her school. just insure your daughter that most kids feel alienated in high school, all for different reasons. Is it her job to seeks them out and make them feel less alienated? I don't know, I related to everyone in my high school but none of them knew me. I was still able to give when I could. Tell her to wish upon a… Read more »

Blessings to both of you!

The Pineal Glad the Inner soul of the true self. This is the real journey.
This is where all mysteries come from the Third eye.

OMG ….EPIC ..EPIC ARTICLE …THANK YOU !

Ancient Turk's as well has the similar believe system , we all being told since the childhood the epic of Asena (the she wolf) The legend tells of a young boy who survived a battle.( the last remaining Turk ) A female wolf finds the injured child and nurses him back to health. He subsequently impregnates the wolf which then gives birth to ten half-wolf, half-human boys. One of these, Ashina, becomes their leader and instaures the Ashina clan which ruled the Göktürks and other Turkic nomadic empires and when a Turk gives birth to a child that child gets the Blue eye .. the eye that protects the child against evil .. nationel symbol is the wolf as well … Which is Sirius … Romans has a similar legend as well .

Sounds very comforting, I hope I may meet her one dream, maybe I already have I don’t think I would know since I hardly remember my dreams

Your English may be fractured but you sound like you are beautiful…

There is a new TV show called House of Anubis.
Fishy, huh?

Also, if you spell Siri backwards you get Iris

Beautiful article. Makes me respect human history and its majesty.

~ Praise the Lord GOD forever-more !!

Fascinating article. I just want to point out that we’ve recently discovered that Sirius has a third star in its star system, which is a red dwarf star called Proxima. So we have Sirius A, Sirius B, and Proxima where astronomers have also discovered a planet orbiting in its habitable zone just 4.2 light-years from our planet. Could this be the actual source of the doctrine of Trinity?

great article , Amazing thing i have never knew it in my life ; but i always these three stars in the night. when i used to walk on My home roof. please share more intresting facts about horus and anibus

You have no ability to discern, which is a pre-requisite.

Isn’t that just the impression made by reincarnation? It seems not many people have heard of Le Spiritisme.

I thoroughly enjoyed this article, thank you for sharing.

“The seventeenth numbered major trump is called Les Étoiles, (French for The Star)

Actually Les Étoiles means The Stars, kinda undercutting your argument that it refers to a star in particular let alone Sirius.

Sirius is two stars, a binary star, thus the plural. Read the article.

Gotta let the minute details go to get the big-picture understanding, which is what Sirius is all about

I like this article it's pretty awesome and I learned a lot of stuff about the star Sirius.

Sunshine before the dawn by judy satori
explaines it all.

the brightest who gave light of heal as i heard in some articles as Sirius A and remaining 2 other are fallowing. Anyway nice article. But are they ancestors of Dogs? or my mind. But as consciousness change, life events change. At first they may be ruled or other terrestrials but finally "forgive" really made some sense or else no one can come out of karma or mistakes (in easy words). No doubt their senses are very sharp or detailed so yeah they are better heart givers or balanced beings of universe. As humans are evolving out of fear and connecting to heart centered love makers so it is really unfolding universal truth of oneness. One can see many animals exists yet connected on this world, so no doubt these animals are advanced in other dimensions like us and ascending to that reality. Welcome all to multidimensional light beings of… Read more »

is thre any personal use of sirius?

sirius is a soul group

dont think sirius to be bad. MAny of the ones who search for knowledge we maybe sirius spirits, you talk about sirius B. and thats truth, annunaki were throw appart from the sirius when sirius ascend. And they where connected somehow to our wor. Besides I think that thing about being an slave to the music is much more a psychologic red tape induce people into believing that they are slaves to the "rithym" means they are beginning to think "they are slaves to the illuminati

the true only one god ALLAH say in the coran in the chapter : the star, verse (49) : and that He (ALLAH) is the lord of sirius. (50) and that it is he, who destroyed the former 'Ad (the giants people who build the pyramids. they were destroyed by a hurricane sent by god 7 night and 8 days, you now that sphinx of giza was covered by sand. think about it (51) and thamud. (another ancient civilisation) he spared none of them. (52) and the people of noah, (who were sinked by the great flood) afortime, ( before the first egypt's nation, the time of atlantis) they were more unjust and more rebellious and transgressing (in disobeying allah and his messenger Noah) (53-54) (He talk about another nation) (55) then which of the Graces of your lord (O man!) will you doubt (56) this is a warner of… Read more »

If Aliens from SIRIUS arrived on Earth thousands of years ago when humans were mere cavemen, i wonder where else they have been to. They must be the masters of the Universe because they have mastered the science of interstellar travel. Man is still bragging that he has landed on the moon! That is equivalent to bragging that you have managed to stand on the table! They should come back and offer free lessons to our Astronauts, and engineers. One lesson should be on how to find alternative means of propulsion and cast engines into the dustbin of history. Why is man so fixated with the engine as the only means of propulsion?

they are here already, they have bred with humans. The "Blue Star" will awaken and when she does we will be in the midst of the finality of this third earth. We are ALL changing to prepare for this event, the fourth earth will be the illuminated earth. You are right, we are fixated with gasoline engines and thats because the ancient knowledge is not here yet, it is coming. There will be more and more star beings coming forward to share this knowledge, in this lifetime.. For now, everyone will need to work on returning to the love of the earth/nature as god intended. Don't frack, crack or smack mother earth, be kind.. she is about to unleash on all of us…

When Jesus was born, it's written that the three wise men were led to the manger by a bright star. Is there a connection between that star and Sirius?

Is it possible that the Blazing Star did not represent Sirius, but a shining star in the ancient times?

"According to many, the great pyramids were built to commemorate and observe a supernova explosion that occurred in the year 4000 B.C. Dr. Anthony Hewish, 1974 Nobel Prize winner in physics, discovered a rhythmic series of radio pulses which he proved were emissions from a star that had exploded around 4000 B.C. The Freemasons begin their calendar from A.L., "In the Year of Light," found by adding 4000 to the modern year. Thus 1990 + 4000 = 5990 A.L. George Michanowsky wrote in The Once and Future Star that "The ancient Sumerian cuneiform…described a giant star exploding within a triangle formed by…Zeta Puppis, Gamma Velorum, and Lambda Velorum…located in the southern sky…." (quotation from 'Behold a pale horse')

Hello! Great article! I just wanted to mention… that from January through February the presence of Jupiter is also worth mentioning. For Jupiter is also considered the eastern star the lead the three magis kings. But I think this still only adds to Sirius because.. in Greek mythology Zeus (or Jupiter) is said to have turned a blessed dog into the dog star so that it could watch over souls passing through the worlds.. or something like that. And if you saw the sky yesterday.. you could've seen Jupiter and Sirius hanging out all through the night (the sun behind the sun also comes to mind if you get my drift) Apollo and Dionisio.

thanks for this!!

I've enjoy this post a lot. Good brain food. But do we need to see dem as Gods. I mean is Sirius also de life giver to human.

Curious, Anyone want to explain why google sky has a black out of Seirius on there sky maps? Seems really strange to black out a whole star system. Any feed back would be helpful.

I was curious about the birth timing of the new royal baby as nothing is left to chance.Check out the connection to Sirious.Remember Diana legitimised her sons through her genuine Stuart bloodline.

Who ever you are—-you are wonderful and have a sense of humor. thank you very much Vicki

Where is the keltic explanation of Sirius?

I have heard something about Orion being called the great hunter also in Celtic mythology and of course he had his dogs, just as Sirius is Orion's Dog.

A:.A:. does not stand for Argentium Astrum as most people believe. It stands for the Prince of Swords in a roundabout way

I always thought it was a veiled reference to anal sex…silver star?

In my culture we have a legend called Maui slowed Ra down (with a special type rope) ….. now it was an amazing story to listen to when I was young, but, then I learned from school that said there was a time when humans thought the earth was the centre of the universe, and now humans know that earth revolves around the sun. So, I couldn't get excited anymore about the story of Maui….. "How can he have slowed the Sun Ra down, pst" but now reading about Sirius, it kinda brings a new light for me concerning Maui and him slowing Ra the Sun down (hence the rope did not burn – lol). Awesome!!! Another is the 7 sisters called Matariki in my language and or the constellation Pleiades in English (?) Maui fished up the north island of Aotearoa (New Zealand) and his canoe (waka) became the… Read more »

Egyptian hieroglyph of Sirius looks like a Mosque

I don't know if anyOne mentioned The Terra Papers, but if they are true, the Sirius connection as "Life Giver" makes awesome sense.

God save America! The Atlanteans got their ideas from Sirius/ Horos etc. and rose in intellect, scientific discovery but ultimately perished. As for the US, the symbolism of Capitol Hill and the image of Sirius and Horos on the US Dollar indicates where their source of Power lies. They have given themselves up to Sirius, and have been rewarded with Financial Power, Political and Military Power just like the Atlanteans. American contributions to the world have been the US Dollar, Equity markets, Capitalism, Entertainment (Hollywood, Pop and Rock culture), Carbon emissions, Drugs, PCs and Internet , mobile phones, nuclear weapons, weapons of mass destruction. It did not require this article to guess who is leading the world to destruction and chaos. Bills Gates rose on the back of pliagarised DOS software bought from an obscure developer and traded to IBM as MS-DOS.However, Sirius worshippers should be aware that Atlanteans fate… Read more »

Americans did not invent the internet, similar to you will not find Ukraine in Alaska…. but I guess this proves your point.

whoever connects with the light will act according to their true nature. I think the sky in not our enemy. Not to judge, but worth looking at, the difference between the rich "finding sirius", and the poor "finding sirius"… time will tell.

Best wishes.
