Hearts in the Wind – the Blog for Radiant Nursing
This blog covers an eclectic range of topics for information, fun, and all the ups and downs of life. For students who have studied with me The First and/or The Second Degrees of The Radiance Technique® – there are suggestions for integrating TRT® into daily living. There's something for everyone.
Macro-Cosmos – Heading Out Into The Universe
Out, out we fly... we're heading into space to explore the macro-cosmos of our galaxies.
This galaxy near the Constellation of Leo reminds us we are in the astrological sign of Leo (23 July to 22 August).
NGC 3190 – A Spiral Galaxy
NGC 3190 is a spiral galaxy with tightly wound arms and it spans about 75,000 light years across. Finely textured dust lanes surround the brightly glowing center of this picturesque spiral. It is visible with a small telescope pointed toward the Constellation of Leo.
NGC 3190 was discovered by William Herschel in 1784. Located 80 million light years away, it is a part of the Hickson 44 galaxy group (in case you need directions on how to get there).
The upper photo of NGC 3190 has a universal shade of blue added to it and it has been turned on its side from the photo below that NASA shared in 2010.
How would we designate up or down or sideways in the universe. Would that exist in deep space?
How Do We See Our Cosmos?
Our concept of colors in the universe is also based on our oh-so-human eyes. A friend pointed this out to me years ago. If you lived near the bright-light center of a spiral galaxy, you could not have these human eyes. Not only these eyes, but also this skin. You'd never survive such a bright, burning light.
How would we appear if we lived closer towards the center of a galaxy?
What kind of physical form would we have? Would it even be a physical form?
Our minds and imagination stretch beyond the edge of the known world.
Bring The Macro-Cosmos To Your Meditations
Students of The Second Degree of The Radiance Technique® can direct energy to any galaxy as they have been taught in their classes. Accessing universal energy, you are able to connect with the vast energies of other galaxies that hold secrets we have yet to discover.
Constellation Of Leo
The constellation of "Leo the Lion" is mapped out in the stars. The stars are numbered below with a description:
Leo The Lion
Circling back to Planet Earth, we embrace our own Leo, the majestic lion of Africa.
In ancient Egypt:
Now that we've traveled out to the Constellation of Leo and visited our earthly lion, you may be wishing that you were born under the sign of Leo.
Not to worry, there's a little bit of Leo the Lion in all of us.
