Mapelli, 44, has created a lot of Internet buzz by topless dancing with 12,000 bees all at once.
The Portland, Oregon-based beekeeper describes her bee dances as “a duet among many.”
“These 12,000 bees push with their powerful wings from each side of my body, I resist and then I let go and flow and move with them,” she writes on her website.” It is a deep meditation and I feel the hive mind surround me, hold me, and expand my body on a cellular level.”
In order to attract the bees to her topless body, Mapelli anoints her body with a special pheromone oil that is equivalent to the scent of 100 queen bees.
The bees usually stay on her body for about two hours at a time.
When Mapelli is done shaking her tail feather with the bees, an assistant removes the pheromone oil around her neck and then she jumps up and down to shake off the swarm, the Daily Mail reports.
She then removes any stingers sticking to her flesh with a soft brush.
Mapelli believes her bee dances send a message to the bees as well.
“I hope to help the bees of the Northwest by encouraging them to swarm and become hardy to the ever-changing environment,” she said in the description for a bee dance video posted to YouTube in 2012.
If you believe you have been abducted by aliens – don’t worry, you are not alone.
The UK’s first support group for people who believe they have experienced alien abduction or other associated anomalous phenomena is holding its annual conference next month.
The Anomalous Mind Management, Abductee, Contactee Helpline (Ammach) is arranging the “Exposure Through Disclosure” event to provide a platform for people to share their extra-terrestrial experiences without the fear of being judged or ridiculed.
“It is not uncommon for people to report being taken onto a craft and given a medical examination”
The helpline has received approximately 1,500 calls since it began three years ago, from people who claim to be an “abductee” or “contactee”, also known as “experiencers”. Contactees are those who have made conscious contact with extra-terrestrials and abductees are those who are taken to an alien craft.
Founder and director Joanne Summerscales, told IBTimes UK: “It is not uncommon for people to report being taken onto a craft and given a medical examination, when on occasion sperm or ovum are taken, or implants inserted.
“Abductees are generally aware something is happening. Sometimes they remember being taken and have reported symptoms like being unable to move. Clearly, our space friends have full control over time and matter, as some people also not only feel, but are aware that they have been taken and returned through solid objects such as walls, doors, windscreens and windows.
“One of the experiencers told me they had interaction with a being who looked like the praying mantis insect, except this being was seven to nine feet tall, bipedal, and of high intelligence.”
She said some experiencers have said there are around 60 different types of species interacting with humanity and the earth, with one group of extra-terrestrials known as “Nordics” because of their Scandinavian looks, with blond hair.
Summerscales believes that as more people develop confidence to come forward to share their experiences the more people will learn about the greater, wider truth of the “our true history”, and “what our place is in this galaxy”.
“The main drive behind Ammach is to widen the knowledge base, to explore and research it, and bring it into the public domain to inspire dialogue,” she added.
“We are in a state our planet, and If any of this is true, once it is accepted as such, it will be revolutionary for humanity, and our development.”
The conference at the White Rock Theatre in Hastings, East Sussex on May 31 from 9.30am to 6.30pm will be featuring six speakers who have been in touch with aliens including ex-soldier Mike Smith, and other researchers specialising in the field. (ibtimes.co.uk)
Residents of Murmansk, a city in Northern Russia, reported seeing a huge fireball tearing through the night-sky. The event occurred at 2.10am local time Saturday and was caught by several dashboard cameras, according to Russia Today. The authenticity of the videos hasn’t been confirmed yet.
The bright object was seen just days before the annual Lyrid meteor, which is expected to peak April 21 and 22, according to The International Business Times.Meteors, the bright flashes of light streaking across the sky, are fairly common. However, several of these meteors are never observed as they occur during the day or at remote places on Earth.
A meteor making it to the earth’s surface is a very rare event. About 99.99 percent of meteors completely disintegrate before reaching the surface, according to The American Meteor Society.Last year, a large rock landed near Chelyabinsk in Russia. The meteorite explosion injured over 1,000 people. The radiation caused skin and retinal injuries in several people.The Chelyabinsk explosion was the largest meteorite explosion in the world since 1908, according to IBT.
Several studies have been conducted on the Chelyabinsk meteorite. Russian Academy of Sciences researchers have reported that the rock that hit Russia last February exploded with an energy of nearly 500 kilotonnes of TNT, according to the Guardian.Astronomical Institute, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic researchers published a paper November, 2013. The study reported that the Chelyabinsk meteorite might have been a part of the asteroid 86039.
