Crystal and I were going through some paperwork today and thought some of you might be interested in the following paragraphs from Linda..
"Several of you have written to ask me why the Fixed Star SIRIUS B is called the dog star. Well, I'm not Carl Sagan, but since none of the books on astronomy explain it, and my intellectual genius Guru, Dr. Charles A. Muses has verified that no astronomical explanation has ever been offered, I shall present my own theory for whatever it may be worth to you.
I have long believed that the name of the Fixed Stars SIRIUS A and the less brilliant SIRUS B (the so-called dog star) somehow became mis-spelled down through the centuries and that the correct spelling in the Anglo Saxon alphabet is SIRIOS, replacing the error of the letter 'U' with the letter 'O', by placing a top on the 'U' (I've believed this, as usual, on the authority of my own Third Eye). Spelled in what I believe to be the true and original way, the name of these stars lexigrams into OSIRIS. So... why is SIRIOS B called the dog star? Perhaps because the word dog was also twisted (by the seeded lies of Set?) down through the tunnels of time and spelled backwards. Dog spelled rightside up (reversed, or re-versed... "write a new verse.") is god. Osiris was called the sun god. Is my theory false or true? Ask your own Higher S-elf".
