A Lions coach whose team was just about to play another team nicknamed the Lions was shoot and killed after watching a film on All Saints Day. Mystery surrounded the why, a week ago. For those who have noted the Auroras and Dawns, the name game continues.
Jeffrey Bruner, 39, approached his estranged wife, Dawn Michelle Bruner, and Derek Moore, an assistant coach at Missouri Southern State University, in the drop-off lanes in front of Northpark 14 Theatres. People were emerging from the theaters after a showing of Captain Phillips about 9:50 p.m.
Dawn Bruner, a campus police officer, and Moore had been to the movie together and were headed toward their vehicle when Jeffrey Bruner said something, then shot Moore in the torso at close range, said Joplin police Lt. Matt Stewart.
Moore fell to the ground, and Bruner fired additional shots, Stewart said, citing witness accounts.
Oftentimes, I receive stream of consciousness communiques from my readers, identifying a pattern they see unfolding in the material I share.
Today, I post, with slight editing (to expand abbreviations and shorthand sentences), a contribution from D.A.
This past Nov 1st I participated in Jason Millers Hekate Rite for Strategic Sorcery students.
I had some quite interesting experiences, more than I was anticipating.
I started with the Sphere of Hekas, and the reciting The Orphic Hymn to
Hekate, followed by the Rite Jason sent out itself. It wasn't until the
mantra portion that things started getting interesting.
Around 300 Mantras in I started entering a trance state. I suddenly found
myself astrally in a wooded copse of trees by a large bon fire. Around it
with me were other shadowing figures, also chanting the mantra. I assumed
these were the other students around the world chanting it during the 3
day time frame. Then I had entered the fire, and was being consumed by
The flames ate my physical body and suddenly I was reconstructed as an
entirely new fierce body, to replace the one I had first generated when
taken the course. Then the same process occurred for the Joy body. After
this I was granted with a vision of Hekate in front of me, not in her
regular form but with the head of a lion, holding torches and flanked by
lions (Call on me often enough and you shall perceive all things in lion
form). Honestly, if I hadn't been performing a Hekate rite I would of
thought this was Sekhmet. After this vision I was instructed in her higher
mysteries that I won't speak of in public. I continued past 1000 mantras,
and communed with Her.
All in all a bit more than I had expected, but I was pleasantly surprised.
Hecate or Hekate (ancient Greek Ἑκάτη, Hekátē) is an ancient goddess, most often shown holding two torches or a key and in later periods depicted in triple form. She is variously associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, fire, light, the Moon, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, necromancy, and sorcery. She has rulership over earth, sea and sky, as well as a more universal role as Saviour (Soteira), Mother of Angels and the Cosmic World Soul. She was one of the main deities worshiped in Athenian households as a protective goddess and one who bestowed prosperity and daily blessings on the family.
