|What happened to Amelia? She apparently had passed over in 1937 as they thought.|
|About her life:|
|Amelia Earhart was born on July 24, 1897, in Atchison, Kansas at her grandparents house. Soon after her birth, Amelia’s parents separated. Nevertheless, Amelia’s sister, Muriel, was born two years later. Amelia’s early years were spent with her wealthy grandparents. The two girls lived with their grandparents until Amelia was 10.|
|Edwin Earhart’s Troubles|
|Amelia’s father, Edwin, eventually took an executive job with Rock Island Railroad in Des Moines, Iowa and re-united with Amelia’s mother, Amy. The Earhart family quickly climbed the social ladder but it was short lived. Edwin began to drink heavily. In 1914, his drinking drove Amy to take the two girls to live with friends in Chicago, Illinois.|
|Amelia Learns the Horrors of War|
|In 1917 Amelia entered a nursing school and witnessed the horrors of war. She served as a Voluntary Aid Detachment nurse at a military hospital during World War I until the Armistice in November, 1918. She would later say,|
|“There for the first time I realized what the World War meant. Instead of new uniforms and brass bands, I saw only the result of four years’ desperate struggle; men without arms and legs, men who were paralyzed and men who were blind”|
|Amelia in the Sky|
|In the fall of 1919 Amelia enrolled as a pre-med student at Columbia University. In 1920, her parents had reunited in California. Amelia decided to leave Columbia and join them. Amelia’s love for aviation was born when her father took her to an aerial show, in which she got to ride in an open-cockpit flight over Los Angeles.|
|Amelia started taking flight lessons with Anita Snook at Kinner Field near Long Beach, California. Amelia caught on quickly and soon became an excellent pilot. In July of 1920, she purchased her first plane. It was a bright yellow Kinner airplane. She named it “The Canary”. In October of 1922, just a few years after taking up flying, Amelia began attempting to break records. She first broke the altitude record of 14,000 feet. As aviation became more and more popular, records were constantly broken as pilots pushed the limits of aviation.|
|Amelia Makes History (for the first time)|
|In 1925 Amelia took a position at Denison House in Boston as a social worker. While there, Amelia got a call that would change her life forever. On April 27th, 1926 Captain Hill Railey called Amelia to take part in a flight across the Atlantic Ocean. She would only be a passenger. Wilmer Stultz and Louis Gordon flew the plane, but Amelia became the first women to make the trip across the Atlantic. Amelia did not think she deserved the attention she received but was more determined than ever to make the trip herself. While in London, and back in the United States, Amelia toured the country giving lectures and speeches.|
|Breaking Flight Records|
|On May 20, 1932, five years after Charles Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic, Amelia began her journey to cross the Atlantic Ocean. Despite eventually veering off course, she broke several records on the historic flight. Not only did she become the first woman to fly the Atlantic solo and the only person to do it twice, she also broke the record for the longest flight by a woman, and broke the record for crossing the Atlantic Ocean in the shortest time. During this time, Amelia had made many important friends. She had agreed to marry millionaire publisher George Putnam, and had even taken first lady Eleanor Roosevelt on a flight.|
|The Ultimate (but last) Flight|
|In 1935 Amelia started planning for an around-the-world flight. On her first attempt she crashed during take off. Amelia would have to wait until her plane was repaired to try again. On June 1st, 1937, Amelia Earhart and co-pilot Fred Noonan again set off to fly around the world. They first flew to San Juan, Puerto Rico, and then eastward toward Africa. Amelia and Fred flew to the Red Sea, to Karachi, Pakistan and to Calcutta, India. Amelia and Fred continued to Rangoon, Bangkok and Singapore. At Port Darwin, Australia, Amelia and Fred were able to make crucial repairs to their airplane. Amelia reached Lae, New Guinea on June 29th. They had flown 22,000 miles and had 7,000 left to go. Amelia had become an international hero, and the world was captivated by her determination. At this point, however, Amelia was said to be exhausted and may have alluded to the possibility that her co-pilot, Fred Noonan, was drinking. However, trouble lurked for Amelia and Fred. Shortly after Amelia left New Guinea on July 2, she sent several distress calls. While her distress calls were received, Amelia could not hear the return messages because she could not find the correct frequency on her radio. Amelia and Fred were off-course and lost over the vast Pacific Ocean. They did not have enough gas to reach their target – The Howland Islands. Amelia and Fred would never be seen or heard from again. President Roosevelt sent nine naval ships and 66 aircraft to search the area. On July 18 the search was called off.|
|What Happened to Amelia?|
|To this day there are many theories concerning the disappearance of Amelia Earhart. Some say her plane crashed in the ocean and she drowned. Others say her plane crashed but she was taken prisoner by the Japanese, who occupied many of the Pacific islands.|
The etheric body akasha maintains vitality, life force, and health. On this level, akasha is nurturing and flowing like water; it is balancing and circulating like air; it is metabolizing and sustaining heat like fire; and it is solid and enduring like earth. It is all of these at once.
The astral refers to our ability to respond, to appreciate, and to feel fully alive. The astral animates things. It has great sensitivity and empathic receptivity.
Akasha here is the ability to take a feeling and make it positive or negative, strong or weak. It can take one emotion and change it into its opposite or back again. Akasha has this power of command over dreams, desires, and feelings.
Akasha sees the desire and the outcome, the intention and the result of that intention. It is the ability to feel alive, to live life to its fullest in every moment of time—this ability is within us should we but seek it and claim it as our own. It is found at the edge of our five senses and in the feelings that flow through us in every moment.
If you have a good conscience, if akasha is active within you on the mental plane, you will notice when something is missing, when things do not feel right. And then you will add or invent something new to bring about balance and progress. Akasha insures the balance of the four elements on the lower planes.
The future is imagination. In a nutshell, akasha asks, What are your innermost dreams? What do you envision that would make life complete? Let us then put in place whatever is required so that what you seek can happen. The task of akasha is to make the world new.
In summary, akasha reveals the purpose you seek to fulfill. On the mental plane, one then asks, What is your plan of action for pursuing this purpose? On the astral plane, the question becomes, What kind of sensitivity or emotional involvement will you need to persevere in this endeavor and bring it to life?
And for the physical plane, the question is, What is the result you seek in specific and concrete terms and how will you stabilize this so it endures and continues to be of value through time? Each element has its own contribution to this process. Akasha oversees and intervenes when necessary to insure that everything keeps working.
