I have never let schooling interfere with my education.
It is my humble opinion that the Book of Revelation was written at a time when one epoch was morphing into another. The Classical Tradition gave way to a Christian ministry, together with all its later denominations. As civilizations before them had done, the celestial baton was being passed from one generation to the next. Each from their pulpit of the present attempting to look to the skies above in an effort to determine what the future would bring.
This new generation was the Age of Pisces.
But that was over two thousand years ago, and we now stand at the crossroads of another shift, as Pisces comes to a conclusion and Aquarius commences.
Revelation speaks of this time.
“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; the first heaven had disappeared now, and there was no longer any sea.” -Rev 21:1
This comes right at the beginning of the next to last chapter. They are describing conditions at the end of the Age of Pisces, our water sign that rules the sea. Internally, water signs deal with emotional sensitivity. Pisces people are known for crying a lot. Building on the notion that this is an energy whose time is coming to an end is furthered:
“He will wipe away all tears from their eyes; there will be no more death, and no mourning or sadness. The world of the past is gone.” Rev 21:5
This notion that there would be “no more death” is a particularly interesting one. It seems to be part of a phenomena that is currently coming more into vogue, not only with intuitives and trance mediums, but even through the scientific community.
From the back cover of INDUCED AFTER DEATH COMMUNICATION:
Induced After Death Communication (IADC) is a therapy for grief and trauma that has helped thousands of people come to terms with their grief by allowing them the experience of private communication with their departed loved ones.
(Allan L. Botkin, PsyD), a clinical psychologist, created the therapy while counseling Vietnam War veterans in his work at a Chicago area VA hospital. Botkin recounts his initial- accidental- discovery of IADC during therapy sessions with Sam, a Vietnam vet haunted by the memory of a Vietnamese girl he couldn’t save. During the session, quite unexpectedly, Sam saw a vision of the girl’s spirit, who told him everything was ok; she was at peace now. This single moment surpassed months- years- of therapy and allowed Sam to reconnect with his family.
Since that 1995 discovery, Botkin has used IADC to successfully treat countless patients- the book includes dozens of case examples- and has taught the procedure to therapists around the country. This is the inside story of a revolutionary therapy that will profoundly affect how grief and trauma are understood and treated.
“Dr Botkin has hit upon a fascinating and powerful new tool that may not only help clients cope with their losses, but also breaks new ground in understanding life and death.”

We may be witnessing the birth of what was being foreseen in the 1st century AD. It certainly makes sense to me that if we can communicate with our deceased loved-ones, then the real source of much of our trauma and grief will wither, like a cut vine on the tree.
From there we move into Aquarius, the sign, where the bottom line, is: FREE.
“Then the One sitting on the throne spoke: “Now I am making the whole of creation new,” he said. “Write this: that what I am saying is sure and will come true.” Ω And then he said, “It is already done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give water from the well of life free to anybody who is thirsty. . .”
We have spoken of the Alpha and Omega many times before, and won’t go into that again here. Aquarius is the water carrier, and this is the water from the well of life that is FREE.
The Age of Aquarius is coming into focus.
