History's Mysteries SOLVED #2

by Lynn & Da-da

Hi all, and welcome to another batch of SOLVED mysteries (ostensibly by way of Occam’s Razor this time). It’s always nice to get some resolution. As usual, Lynn's words are "in quotes,” and Da-da’s follow-up questions are [in brackets]. NOTE: Oddly, both of us had email drafts disappear more than once, and a bunch of other emails vanish and relocate themselves. Needless to say, it seems that someone / something doesn't want this information getting out, for whatever reason. With that in mind… here we go!




1. The Mona Lisa
Ok, who is the subject of Leonardo di Vinci’s, "Mona Lisa"? Some have suggested...

… that Leonardo actually painted himself as a woman! Also, why did Leonardo paint all that complex background behind her? Does it have any meaning?
What Lynn Saw
"I get this was his mom, which is why they resemble each other. I’m getting a story about his mom dying when he was fairly young, and he’d had this sketch of her he'd made while just a kid. He painted this as a tribute to her. The background is the landscape of his childhood; the whole thing is both a tribute and a recollection of Leonardo’s lost childhood."






2. The Salem Witch Trials 
This is a complicated mess from 1692, where 20 people were executed (five others died in prison). The part we’re most interested in is in red

From Wikipedia:
In Salem Village, in February 1692, Betty Parris, age 9, and her cousin Abigail Williams, age 11, the daughter and niece, respectively, of Reverend Samuel Parris, began to have fits described as "beyond the power of Epileptic Fits or natural disease to effect" by John Hale, the minister of the nearby town of Beverly. The girls screamed, threw things about the room, uttered strange sounds, crawled under furniture, and contorted themselves into peculiar positions, according to the eyewitness account of Rev. Deodat Lawson, a former minister in Salem Village.
The girls complained of being pinched and pricked with pins. A doctor, historically assumed to be William Griggs, could find no physical evidence of any ailment. Other young women in the village began to exhibit similar behaviors. When Lawson preached as a guest in the  Salem Village meetinghouse, he was interrupted several times by outbursts of the afflicted.
The first three people accused and arrested for allegedly afflicting Betty Parris, Abigail Williams, 12-year-old Ann Putnam, Jr., and Elizabeth Hubbard, were Sarah GoodSarah Osborne, and Tituba. Some historians believe that the accusation by Ann Putnam Jr. suggests that a family feud may have been a major cause of the witch trials. At the time, a vicious rivalry was underway between the Putnam and Porter families, one which deeply polarized the people of Salem. Citizens would often have heated debates, which escalated into full-fledged fighting, based solely on their opinion of the feud.
Good was a homeless beggar, known to seek food and shelter from neighbors. She was accused of witchcraft because of her appalling reputation. At her trial, she was accused of rejecting Puritan ideals of self-control and discipline when she chose to torment and "scorn [children] instead of leading them towards the path of salvation".
Sarah Osborne rarely attended church meetings. She was accused of witchcraft because the Puritans believed that Osborne had her own self-interests in mind following her remarriage to an indentured servant. The citizens of the town disapproved of her trying to control her son's inheritance from her previous marriage.
Tituba, an Indian slave, likely became a target because of her ethnic differences from most of the other villagers. She was accused of attracting girls like Abigail Williams and Betty Parris with stories of enchantment from Malleus Maleficarum. These tales about sexual encounters with demons, swaying the minds of men, and fortune-telling were said to stimulate the imaginations of girls and made Tituba an obvious target of accusations.
Each of these women was a kind of outcast and exhibited many of the character traits typical of the "usual suspects" for witchcraft accusations; they were left to defend themselves. Brought before the local magistrates on the complaint of witchcraft, they were interrogated for several days, starting on March 1, 1692, then sent to jail.
In March, others were accused of witchcraft: Martha Corey, child Dorothy Good, and Rebecca Nurse in Salem Village, and Rachel Clinton in nearby Ipswich. Martha Corey had expressed skepticism about the credibility of the girls' accusations and thus drawn attention. The charges against her and Rebecca Nurse deeply troubled the community because Martha Corey was a full covenanted member of the Church in Salem Village, as was Rebecca Nurse in the Church in Salem Town. If such upstanding people could be witches, the townspeople thought, then anybody could be a witch, and church membership was no protection from accusation. Dorothy Good, the daughter of Sarah Good, was only four years old, but not exempted from questioning by the magistrates; her answers were construed as a confession that implicated her mother. In Ipswich, Rachel Clinton was arrested for witchcraft at the end of March on independent charges unrelated to the afflictions of the girls in Salem Village.[33]
The trials resulted in the executions of twenty people, fourteen of them women, and all but one by hanging. Five others (including two infant children) died in prison.
Twelve other women had previously been executed in Massachusetts and Connecticut during the 17th century. Despite being generally known as the Salem Witch Trials, the preliminary hearings in 1692 were conducted in several towns: Salem Village (now Danvers), Salem TownIpswich, and Andover. The most infamous trials were conducted by the Court of Oyer and Terminer in 1692 in Salem Town.
The episode is one of Colonial America's most notorious cases of mass hysteria. It has been used in political rhetoric and popular literature as a vivid cautionary tale about the dangers of isolationism, religious extremism, false accusations, and lapses in due process. It was not unique, but a Colonial American example of the much broader phenomenon of witch trials in the early modern period, which took place also in Europe. Many historians consider the lasting effects of the trials to have been highly influential in subsequent United States history. According to historian George Lincoln Burr, "the Salem witchcraft was the rock on which the theocracy shattered."
So... a total mess, and a great indicator of what a nightmare this community must’ve been like to live in. But were the girls faking their original symptoms? Or was it actually caused by a spirit? Were they perhaps influenced by bad grain?? (Some researchers tried to blame what happened on ergot, a kind of rye fungus.) So, what started it all?

What Lynn Saw
"It looks like the girls were faking it under the instruction of their mom, to basically scare the crap out of the opposing family… and it backfired horribly against everybody involved. The girls even practiced their performances, to evoke extra fear… but the whole thing turned into a complete mess. Those people locally who really did have powers didn’t go around flaunting it simply because of the nightmare way this society was structured. It was all a set up."


3. Glastonbury
Who originally built Glastonbury? I’m guessing the hill used to be a fort of some sort. What did it look like before the “tor" (tower) was built? I’m guessing the tor is fairly recent. What’s the early history of the site and the people who built it?

What Lynn Saw
"Strange, when I look at this, I can see through it. There’s a structure in the earth under this, and the earth grew up around it. There was a little city in the center of that hill. It might be a sacred site, but if you dig there, you’ll find stone remnants of this building that lies inside that hill. I’m getting tat the purpose of the structure was to house soldiers, mostly, and this place served as a pit stop between towns for travelers. It was built under some king’s orders."

[Which king? Was it King Arthur?]
"I want to say yes. That does feel right."


4. Chaco Canyon
So, who originally built Chaco Canyon? What happened to the civilization there?

What Lynn Saw
"The people who built this had very dark skin and straight dark hair, the native american tribe that built this community here. It feels like there were a lot of battles and fights over land and resources here, a lot of competition for survival. It was built with a big wall as protection, to protect against invasion, as terrible brutality existed at this time. The people within had a good mentality; they were just trying to protect themselves. They built the wall first, the rest later. It was its own little town. This tribe stayed there all year round. I also get that, as competition increased to survive outside, it became harder and harder to feed the thriving community inside. The resources dried up and the community was forced to abandon the area. They tried to reestablish this same community elsewhere." 



5. Grand Canyon Buddha
In 1909, a Phoenix newspaper article…



...was published about two Smithsonian archaeologists finding rock-cut vaults and caverns in the Grand Canyon, complete with what appeared to be a kind of Buddha-like statue, along with rock tunnels and even mummies. The researchers attributed the site to the Ancient Egyptians, which may have colored a lot of their thinking. The entrance was high up one of the cliff walls. Here’s an excerpt:

"The latest news of the progress of the explorations of what is now regarded by scientists as not only the oldest archeological discovery in the United States, but one of the most valuable in the world, which was mentioned some time ago in the Gazette, was brought to the city yesterday by G.E. Kinkaid, the explorer who found the great underground citadel of the Grand Canyon during a trip from Green River, Wyoming, down the Colorado, in a wooden boat, to Yuma, several months ago.”

You might want to read the whole newspaper article. It’s very interesting.

So, what’s the history of this site? Is it still intact? And did the Smithsonian toss all the evidence they found? (They won’t even acknowledge the archaeologists in the article.)

What Lynn Saw
"I’ve done readings on the Grand Canyon before that are dark; there’s this ominous feel or vibe to the Grand Canyon in general, like maybe it’s had lots of battles and death and such. There’s bad energy in spots. There are also ET bases in parts of the Grand Canyon where they come in and out through the rock walls. Basically, a lot of oddity in general. As for this, I get that there was trade and bartering system waay before the time of Columbus (though the European PTW don’t want you to know that, and have tried to write it out of history). People from Asia and vicinity knew of the West Coast and interior of North America for a long time, and would trade with the people there. One group brought over a Buddha statue when they traveled with some fur traders. It’s not that tough of a trip to go from Asia to Canada in the summer, when the water is free of ice. Feels like a group of Asians came over with the traders and stayed. They toted that Buddha statue for good luck and good fortune, and eventually wound up in the grand canyon, and lived in the caves they found. The site isn’t that old, really; only about 300 years before this 1909 newspaper article. And yes, The Smithsonian really did toss much of the evidence, but the site itself is still intact. Some people want to hold onto this false history that the US was isolated and unknown before the Europeans came; they can’t give credit to anyone else for what they did. Think about going all the way from Asia to the GC a thousand years ago with a Buddha statue in tow… it’s impressive!”

[Were the caves natural, or did the… Chinese?… carve them out? Did they find a preexisting site of a previous civilization? And what eventually happened to the Chinese who stayed there?]

“The caves were natural, and were found through the opening (which was much smaller, later made larger). I don't think anyone lived there for a length of time (it was more of a take cover kind of place). Eventually, like many societies, they ran out of resources, and could not thrive there. I see they headed south, maybe even all the way to Mexico."

[It’s kinda like "Kung Fu" (the TV series) meets "Aguirre, Wrath of God.”] 

And that is all folks.  Thanks everyone for tuning in to read.  Love and light- Lynn and Da-da

Love that Leonardo would paint his mother. Moving x

So Gavin Menzies was right? China did discover America before Columbus?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gavin_Menzies

But this was in 1421 and not 1000 years ago.

Robert Schoen said...

What a great collection of topics! The Mona Lisa as da Vinci's mother makes sense, especially as he kept the painting all his life. However there may be something older and more deeper to explain the artifacts found in the Grand Canyon. Some have noted the seemingly intentional pyramidal form of many of the mountains there. The picture of the very unusual Buddha (not like any Chinese or Indian Buddha I've seen) shows it on a base with Egyptian figures and Hieroglyphs in which the base looks like it was made for it. There have been many other artifacts found in these caves that seem to suggests a fusion of different cultures or even an earlier unknown root culture from which the Egyptians, Chinese and other nations adopted different aspects. Here are two youtube videos that explore these aspects:

Hi Lynn! I love your readings. On a previous reading of Mona Lisa, you had said it was Da Vinci himself, and that the piece had hidden symbols and so forth. On this reading, it appears to be his mom? I'm confuse. Can you please clarify? Thanks. Love & Light.

A Man Called Da-da said...

@RobertSchoen -- Yeah, I asked Lynn a while back about those Grand Canyon sites with Egyptian names and they were just named that way by people with that mindset, due to the shapes. They have nothing to do with the Ancient Egyptians. Note that there are no actual pics of the Buddha itself, just artist recreations. We have no idea of how anything really looked, save for what Lynn saw. For the record, she's only been wrong once that I've seen, and that was because she was looking at another timeline.

Anneki said...

Hi,
can you comment on this?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHm5Vgb_CAg
and perhaps on the theory of mandela effects and timelines?

Robert Schoen said...

@Da-da, thanks for the clarification on the Buddha. Perhaps the artifacts I've seen on Youtube are pastiche fakes mixing cultures, but the seemingly engineered geometry of the mountain forms around the Colorado River does strongly suggests the design of pyramid-like structures that are found around the globe (or pizza platter for flat earthers. BTW, What would be on the flip side? Seems like a lot of wasted real estate if true)

It's common for the same images without sources to circulate on the internet that further complicates making any judgement on their authenticity or where they were originally from, but the seemingly engineered stone masses in the Grand Canyon along with Hopi oral history of underground cities that built them (Reptilians) makes me think the same people responsible for the world's other pyramids were here as well. Here's another good video:

Alex said...

@Robert

I agree with Dada, those aren't pyramids and sphinx but photoshop drawings by artist who think the rocks resemble them. I can also draw any statue out of vague rock shapes with my computer. Sphinx and pyramids are more clearly defined. Somebody drew a fake man's face on rocks on the Moon or Mars before, same type of wild speculation. If you look up close, they don't resemble at all.

Eqyptians have never travelled out of Eqypt before Columbus as they don't have the sailing technology to reach that far.

Robert Schoen said...

Just to clarify, my original post was to suggest that perhaps some earlier race occupied and terraformed the Grand Canyon,using advanced technology to dissolve stone so as to shape energy focusing conical or pyramid like forms from the natural mountains, and carve out a vast system of underground tunnels and cities.

This advanced culture, which also left cultural artifacts reported in early expeditions and later suppressed by the Smithsonian, may have been the original source for the deities later adopted by the Egyptians and Chinese. I wasn't suggesting the Egyptians traveled there but someone who named the zones there obviously recognized some connection to what they created. There has even been some who have linked the Canyon's structures to the star alignments just like the Egyptians did. I probably was too imprecise calling these massive structures pyramids, in that they have a more elaborate and sophisticated geometry that recalls the Dhammanayan Ghi temple of Myramar or the Anghor Wat temple of Cambodia. If you have the technology to dissolve stone it's a lot easier to carve your temple or pyramid in the quarry itself rather than to have to chisel out blocks from a distant quarry, transport, shape and assemble hundreds of thousands of heavy stone blocks a good distance elsewhere.

Photoshopping concerns aside, I first became aware of these structures in a video that showed the south rim of the Grand Canyon that circled the structures,making their symmetrical and deliberate design very evident, in which the narrator pointed out the erosion of perhaps tens of thousands of years recalled the water erosion of the Sphinx. Below are links to some images of the temples and Canyon which looks like an Acropolis-like citadel of multiple temples. It would be interesting to know where these Grand Canyon structures fall on laylines, but the energy of this place has drawn people to it for who knows how long. This is only my opinion but I think it ties in well with everything else we know about the secret history of our planet. It also doesn't negate Lynn's reading that some Chinese may have traveled with their Buddha to this place. In fact they may have left it there recognizing it was a temple. Just saying.

@Richard Schoen

This advance culture was the ancestors of ancient Egyptians before the great flood that split apart the continents. the ancient egyptians took the remnants after the event (such as the sphinx which is based off south american cat) and created kemet. the original ancestor children are known as the Olmecs. The olmecs are ancestors of the indigineous peoples of North and South America that later split into many tribes, some were expelled to cambodia, and others traveled to china and were known as the Xi. the xi traded with pacific coast region

@Karoline. Thanks for your sharp memory! This is not uncommon. After first denying Flat Earth Lynn apparently jumped on this trendy band-wagon and now, despite all evidence, supports the Flat Earther nonsense! Two years ago she wrote " When I tune in I see myself float above earth, and what I see looks like a rotating sphere. I keep zooming out, and see the rotation causing night, day and the variations in between in comparison to the sun. Even though there are ideas that support a flat Earth, I cannot connect to it." Conveniently she " forgot" to include this blog entry (dated as of Nov. 10 2015) in the Flat Earth Label (it shows 6 entries when in fact it should be 7). I remembered her to include the non-confirming blog entry into the Flat earth sampler some three months ago but...

Psychic Focus (Lynn) said...

Hi everyone! Thanks for the comments! I do appreciate all types of feedback and sharing (it is how we grow!).

@Alex: I did get that other people did discover America way before Columbus. I feel like if we look through history, it isn't that it is denied, it is just sort of suppressed. Other countries didn't create the scale of colonizing that Europe did, but they were here (living and thriving).

@Karoline: Yes, I do remember that.. I even started to go that path again when I did this reading, but something didn't sit right and just kept going with it (I'm learning when I need to push it more). I then realized he was very connected to it, but it was because of the emotional connection for what it meant to him, and not because it was of himself.

@Robert and Dada: Thanks for sharing and adding some clarity to this. :-) I also appreciate all the info! I learn new things every day!

@0a5a8f96-1649-11e7-aab5-b737b79fb4dc: I did follow up with Karoline above. I wanted to provide some clarity to the reading. If you still have questions regarding the Mona Lisa, please let me know.

The Flat Earth concept does require some pause to consider. When I first was approached with the subject, I immediately wanted to reject it (it was hard to get past the bias as we have been programmed since children to just "know" the earth is round). In my first reading I think I was still holding onto some of that bias, and it was something I really had to work through. I've since learned how to set myself (ego, fears, etc) aside and work with my guides. I am open to the earth being round, flat, or even a cone (I just want the truth). Maybe take a moment to consider that no one "really" 100% knows with their eyes what earth looks like, and we form our judgement based on what others tell us to think.

(PS: I updated the tag to show 7 Flat Earth readings- your assumption it was "forgotten" was incorrect. It was the first reading I did on the topic and didn't have a tag created for it yet. If ever in doubt, let me know. I take what I do very seriously and stand by my readings.)

Thanks again to all of you. Feedback is a gift! Love and light-

Robert Schoen said...

I usually make only a post so forgive me if I'm hogging this comment section. I wanted to thank @Scorpio for mentioning the Olmecs as the ancestors of the people of not only the Americas but also Myramar and Cambodia as well. I looked up their culture and you can easily see the faces in their art are identical. Whenever I write about ancient cultures with advanced technology, I always think of that wild haired guy on "Ancient Aliens" and want to start every sentence with "Could it be....?"

As to the flat earth, it is fascinating how the flat earth emerged as a hot topic, whether or not it is a psyop to discredit, and I can't help thinking we are revisiting one of the earliest philosophical debates when people thought they could sail off the end of the earth if they went too far. If trusting one's instincts is a measure of truth, I can't see how the flat earth can be, especially with the model of our solar system and galaxy and all the evidence of other civilized planets visiting here. But I completely respect Lynn's ability and her altruistic motive in sharing her gift to all and that is enough to leave me with an open mind on the possibility. There are so many other topics that are more important and relevant to me it holds an importance on par with a parlor game, almost like wondering how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. If there really is a flat earth, I hope that Trump drills a hole down through the hollow earth to the other side, clams it for America and builds a hotel and casino there just to piss off Don Lemon. Just kidding...

I get upset when posters criticize Lynn, especially when they infer she is not doing enough, intentionally misleading her viewers or they whine about the quality or inconsistency of her readings. A topic like the flat earth is difficult to wrap one's head around and like any challenging topic it has to be examined multiple times over a long period in which something new can be discovered and appreciated every time. Lynn has done other readings in which she has seen different phases of a topic that seem inconsistent until you see they are layers of the same event. With so many truths being unfolded these days It's fine to disagree but no one should assume she is trying to lead others astray. By the same token, as talented as she is, this blog does not let you off the hook from developing your own insights and intuition. Lynn should be regarded as a great teacher, and as she says, You already have the answer within you.".

I think Leonardo da Vinci and Mona Lisa were both Jewish. So it makes sense if they were family.
