SEGMENTED SLEEP AND OTHER ODDITIES

January 1, 2015

doubledoorlarge

So, have you noted any change in your sleep patterns lately? When you look at the sky, does it appear far less blue than you remember as a child? Is the quality of that sleep, when you can get it, of lesser quality than you feel that you require? Have you found yourself awakened between 2 and 4AM, and utilized that time for creative purposes? Have you come across information that altered or expanded an existing paradigm(s) and found yourself inexplicably having past events – some from even childhood that you had all but forgotten – being replayed in your mind that have an attachment of anger, fear, confusion, powerlessness or even grief?

These questions may appear at odds with each other but the fact remains – based on my own experience and many others – that sleep patterns are being changed dramatically lately.  I would suggest, based on several sources, that this oddity has a basis both in the physical and metaphysical. I would also add that they are very much interconnected. I will state that if you are experiencing difficulty in your sleeping patterns to first see a doctor, if you feel the need.  If some sources are correct, this disruption is only temporary, although they regard a year or two as temporary, which it may well take for some to re-establish a consistently healthy and enriching period of sleep. There is a fair amount taking place, especially during this time period of very shifting energy. Consider the very noticeable confusion, anger and anxiety that is present globally with neverending wars, killing, enslaving and displacing millions, just in the last few months.  As spiritually aware beings, we can’t help but be affected by the intense suffering.

I won’t be covering all aspects of sleep, obviously, so more information on the physical aspects of sleep can be found at The National Sleep Foundation.

BLISSFUL SLUMBER

According to The National Sleep Foundation, each of us does require a session of sleep over a given time period. Sleep is essential for many of our physical processes and lack of good quality sleep can lead to serious medical problems including diabetes and obesity.  They suggest that teens often require 7-9 hours of sleep to be fully functional, as an example. But they also contend that their minds are quite active late into the evening, which can present very physical problems. Some schools begin classes early in the morning, making it difficult for a teen to balance turning off the active mind and trying to sleep. The consequence is a difficulty in concentration, memory problems and greatly reduced ability to consolidate or retain new information. All too often, there is accompanying depression and a follow-up prescription of antidepressants for the teen.

Each of us has experienced “insomnia” of some type, essentially an inability to fall asleep when we lay our head on the pillow and simply toss and turn.  But The National Sleep Foundation suggests that there are actually four components to insomnia: waking up too early and not being able to get back to sleep, frequent awakenings and waking up feeling unrefreshed. Of course, a physical ailment like an oncoming flu bug might be occurring or there may be an element of pain or discomfort to account for these symptoms so, once again, if broken sleep patterns are happening to you over a considerable duration, seeing a doctor might be a serious consideration.

Another aspect to this topic is in the area of dreams and their purpose.  Secular psychologists will tell you that this dreamtime period is when our mind tries to make sense of the world around us. This is aptly demonstrated by the often used phrase – “Sleep on it. Things will look differently in the morning.” The same principle is being utilized when we come to a stuck point in a project and set it aside for a time and concentrate on other things. What happens is our 3D analytical mind sends the problem or issue into a type of cycle, searching for a solution. What is being used is a combination of both the analytical  and creative aspects in  tandem. But here’s the catch – in order to access our “creative” or imaginative part of the brain, it must be able to “join in”.  When we spend our time concentrating fully on a solution, it is very difficult for us to tap into our creative aspect, which is actually the key that we need for resolution – essentially solving a problem with a creative solution.

There are many who contend that, aside from a physical need for dreams, there is a distinctly metaphysical purpose as well.  Dreams can be harbingers of future events, communication with entities that we’re only able to access in the REM state and even with ourselves, either in a parallel reality or our Higher Self aspect. There are also many who contend that the sleep period allows parts of our energy bodies to detach, and enter another reality of frequency to be recharged.  Additionally, this detachment and return may also include energetic information bundles – somewhat like a ZIP file – that are opened over time, in response to specific stimuli.

SPIRIT TRAVEL OR ASTRAL PROJECTION

Some years ago, I attended a lecture by a prominent psychiatrist who claimed to specialize in Dream Interpretation. I asked him, “How many of our dreams are actually astral projection?” His response had been a cold, “There’s no such thing as astral projection.” before moving very quickly to another question. At the time, I had been heavily involved in learning about energy work, exploring and experimenting with astral projection and remote viewing. Sources like the well-known occult writers Denning and Phillips,  whose book on astral projection I used as my first guide, contend there is a direct association between our solar plexus chakra and our astral body. In fact, the method they taught – consciousness transfer to a created “astral vehicle” – utilized this chakra exclusively.  They also taught, as part of the exercises leading up to actual projection, formation of created entity called a servitor or thought form, that one could send to another point in space/time and return it. But a key part of this process was “downloading” the information it had acquired into the 3D physical brain. There must be a mechanism in place to facilitate that, it doesn’t happen automatically. As this pertains to dreams,  this may account for us recalling only scattered pieces of a dream, often one that seemed and felt quite real.  It seems ironic: Robert Bruce, a man who has taught 1,000’s of people to AP, including designing an exit method specifically for blind people called the Rope Technique, suggests that AP is a natural process that works when we’re sleeping but requires significant effort and concentration to actually do, while we’re “awake”. The limitation of this type of travel is said to only include our 3D physical and the astral levels of reality.

There are many ancient cultures that firmly believe that our “soul” and/or our “spirit”  are also capable of taking flight, referred to by some as the “shamanic journey“. The largest benefit, in my estimation, to spirit travel is that one can access higher-vibrating levels of realities than just the astral. Shamans believed that the soul was free to leave the body during sleep but also had varied methods of “inducement” ranging from chemical means like ayahuasca or physical stimuli like repetitive drumming. It was claimed they could step into “otherworld” and converse with the archetypes of plants to concoct a cure, assist in finding and retrieving lost soul fragments and returning them,  and even use it as a means of psychology. In this last, it was believed that some problems faced in a present incarnation have their origins in a past life. The shaman would put a person into a trance and guide them to the Lower Worlds to a place known by some as the Cave of Wounds. There, the individual would view that action – the “first wound” – that was now bleeding into their present incarnation and causing difficulty. By acknowledging it and accepting it, the healing could begin under the shaman’s guidance.

The point here is that first of all, soul or spirit travel is innate for us… at least it is for many.  (Explaining this last addition is beyond the purview of this piece and would take considerable time to explore.)  While we sleep, it is believed that soul travel is commonplace. Most have an image that these realms of higher vibrating energy are way “out there”, when in fact it can be accessed as if it was only inches away. I contend, based on my own experience and research, that we can open doorways and interact directly with other entities, without even leaving our bodies.  To do this, my strong suggestion is to work with our chakras and kundalini energy, as well as develop specific “seeing” skills like remote viewing. There is an excellent site that I go to often to work my “psychic muscle” called The Ten Thousand Roads Project, which provides a huge number of targets, an active forum and an opportunity to discuss results/observations with other RVer’s. If you have never tried to remote view, you can test your ability at another site with a series of targets. On a personal note, it was incredibly exhilarating for me to take the test and discover that, on roughly 80% of the targets, I was somewhat accurate. I knew that I had seen something.

The point is that part of this broken sleep pattern might have to do with us accessing a higher level of awareness, courtesy of the spiritual work we’re doing.  Whenever there is an alteration in either the physical, spiritual, emotional or mental aspect of us, it is reflected in the other areas.  Consider a tooth ache and the effect it has on our ability to concentrate,  which affects the emotional and may well affect the spiritual as well. Similarly, an emotional problem or issue looming over us, which we may try to put off, can have have a noticeable effect on other areas of our lives.

One other consideration here before moving on is worth noting. I have experienced this on occasion and you likely have as well. During periods of spiritual change, we may be haunted by hurtful, embarrassing or even shameful events from our past. It happens when it happens because only then do we possess the needed skills, time, appreciation, understanding or tools to deal with them effectively. Sometimes these “clearings” can take the form of nightmares, which we may not fully recall because this has taken place in the astral realm. Remember, there must be a mechanism or process in place to download those AP’s.  While we may not recall them, a part of us does and reacts. I have found that, during periods of great learning, this can happen and it is a needed and desired action.  As a result, we have an unconscious reason for not being able to sleep, namely that some part of us is aware of what is happening or happened in the dreamtime and is responding by keeping us awake, when we want to be asleep.

I will add one other suggestion to this that has assisted me greatly. Often, when we can only snatch an hour or two of sleep, like an afternoon nap, the dream recall is significantly higher. If the dream ended in a way that upset you in some way, go back and change the outcome. You’ll know when to do this when you can recall a general location and landmarks eg: trees, field, buildings, parking lots.  The next time you lay down, try your best to bring up that fragmented image, rearrange the players, and alter the outcome. I will add that this has sometimes been a type of test for me before moving to another stage of spiritual awareness. I’ll give a quick personal experience to orient you.

In the dream, I was walking beside a building with a fence, apparently aiming for the entry to the soccer field below. A group of 6 men confronted me, took my ticket and began to rough me up for no apparent reason. It was here that I returned to wakefulness, not at all pleased.  I got up, had some water and a cigarette, troubled that I had allowed myself to be bullied. When I laid back down, I did some rhythmic breathing and then brought up the location on my inner screen. I entered this other reality, confronted by the same group. This time, I took back my power and I began to lay the boots to them! And then I stopped short. A thought process was taking place I didn’t identify at that time but I sensed I needed to change how I reacted to their violence. Instead of kicking and punching, I simply used thought to wrap each of them in a web they could not escape. That, for me, was the test aspect. Would I respond in kind, as if I was still in 3D, or use my powers as a spiritual being to resolve the conflict without violence?

It has been my experience that we are under scrutiny almost always.  Simply being on a spiritual path does not automatically mean we will progress in our development towards our actual role or purpose.  We have to do the work, and it can be both painful yet very uplifting. Some suggest this applies even to perspective guides or specialist guides. It is often said that with great wisdom comes great responsibility. Essentially, some guides want to know for certain, beforehand, if the candidate has achieved a required level of proficiency in some area. These tests can be quite unorthodox, may be implanted into our awareness during the REM state, and result in an action – or inaction – on our part, in the 3D waking world, in a type of subliminal programming. It would be similar in nature to the tapes available for learning a new language or improving memory, designed to be used while we sleep. When we wake up, we obviously can’t remember the subliminals. On a personal note, I picked up one for improving my memory, many years ago. I recall the fascination I felt when I really saw a noticeable difference in memory and recall, after less than a week, and it was quite significant. Explained in this way, you will likely see the ties here and why some guides might want to test us in this way… if only to see how connected we truly are to Spirit.

ENERGY AND EMPATHY

In exploring this aspect, as it possibly relates to our segmented sleep patterns, there is a certain amount of cause for concern. Most people take it for granted, but when we’re sleeping there are billions of other people wide awake, across the globe, and are experiencing dire levels of impoverishment, brutality and dislocation. The energy that created the present chaos we see engulfing the countries of the world’s leading powers, is amplified and reinforced by the resultant misery, terror, fear and pain of those who are on the receiving end.  Some schools of thought, including the Gnostic mystery schools, believed that the true receivers of this created negative energy were entities that were unable to enter our reality, and instead used their mind control abilities to enslave an entire species so they could siphon off the energy for themselves. As inorganic beings, they were unable to  materialize in an organic environment, and were not able to truly create in an organic universe – they could only imitate.  Others believe that a central hidden aspect of the 3 messianic religious mythologies involves the planet of Saturn, some going so far as to contend that Saturn is actually the central “mob boss” of those religions. Obviously, this planet stands out as quite unique, with an eye on its south pole, a swirling hexagon at its northern pole – which some claim is imitated by the Muslim ritual of walking slowly around the Kaaba Stone in Mecca – and its innumerable rings.

Belief in supernatural beings can be found in almost every religious belief system, often including the notion of dark fighting light, and often for the prize of human souls.  The nature of Saturn itself is also very unique for our solar system. Essentially, it has no surface and is made entirely of numerous gases interacting with each other and yet we regard it as a planet. One other oddity to include here is that NASA, in 2016, will be crashing the Cassini space probe into Saturn, upon completion of its mission by then. Some have raised an alarm that this probe may carry nuclear or fissionable material that will explode in the atmosphere, and turn this ball of gas into a second sun.  Is it possible that this “planet” is simply a created entry point into our reality or a type of portal?

I don’t have to articulate many of the insane actions taking place globally, as you’re well aware, if only on an energetic level. And this is an important point that I mentioned in my last post. As spiritually aware beings, we are touched to varying degrees when we become aware of suffering.  A side effect of pursuing a progressive spiritual path is an increased capacity for empathy and compassion. This is the good news. The other side of the coin is that it is not a far stretch for energy to be altered or manipulated so our reaction is also changed. For instance, a horrifying aspect of the ISIS threat involves the many reports of a growing slave market, selling women into sexual slavery.  Our reaction will be mixed; horror and even anger at the men, and great distress for the poor women. Consider also, that much of this is actually taking place when we are normally fast asleep. The bad news is that we are in a prime state to have that energy of pain, sorrow and despair impact on us directly, just like the subliminal tapes. Is it possible that this may play some role in waking us for no reason, as we experience an overload of emotional energy?

Nicksnewnotes

This is hardly comprehensive but I hope it does shed a bit of light on what can be a troubling phenomenon. Obviously, there are many factors to consider.  On a personal note, I have seen an increase in “progression symptoms” in recent weeks, including significant research into another poem.  Like when one is about to get a full blown cold, there are certain advance symptoms that, if recognized, allows a person to take the needed preventative actions.  I’ve found progressing to another level of awareness or understanding has its own unique symptoms.  Like building anything, a solid base is essential but it requires specialized knowledge and wisdom to see it to fruition or conclusion.

I’ve detailed a number of thoughts and suggestions above, from both a physical as well as a metaphysical perspective. I don’t believe that one can find a complete answer from a single source. One of the most painful experiences we can put ourselves through is when we hold strong to one side of an issue…. and then try to objectively examine an entirely counter view.  Often, we will continue to be defensive as we try to understand an unreasonable argument – from our perspective – and tend to disregard much of it due to our own understanding.  Part of this stems from our ego at work, and it can be a momentous obstacle to navigate. It does not suggest a deficiency in us but rather an area where we can progress.  I worked in the hospitality and entertainment industry for many years and encountered a fair number of “disgruntled” clients.  Responding in kind was obviously not in my best interest but I did develop, owner time, an ability to calmly talk to angry customers. I would suggest that our ability to not allow ourselves to be played with, by these created energies, can also be developed with patience and effort.

One thing that has aided me enormously is rearranging the context of a given event.  In recent months, more and more reports are surfacing that indicate a collection of nations are sponsoring ISIS secretly, while overtly pretending to be fighting them as well. The whole war on terror was supposed to be against a mysterious group known as al-qaida, and we are now told that tax dollars are being sent directly to al-qaida because they are now somehow our ally. They are allegedly our enemy in Yemen and Afghanistan but not in Syria or Iraq. The consequence has not only been cognitive dissonance on a massive scale but a global awakening and awareness of the deceit taking place. Essentially, the more actions taken that make no sense to the average person, the more suspicions are raised. And that initial suspicion of deceit can often become a newly-opened door to awareness, understanding and awakening. A painful admission must be made here and I do not push this on anybody – some actions must take place, for this age to reach its crescendo and conclusion.

One aspect that I wanted to acknowledge was also the possibility of outside “influence” or interference from malevolent sources. Often, when a cycle like this takes place, I will change up my sleep periods entirely. If technology is being used to interfere with the public in general it is always on a specific timetable, ie: over an entire city or area simultaneously, essentially blanketing it for a set period of time to affect as many as possible. Some sources suggest that our REM state is the best for susceptibility to energetic programming but what is effective in the REM state has an extremely diminished effect in a non-REM state, such as being fully awake and conscious. Because of my work schedule, like many of you, I can’t always initiate this – sleeping in the day and staying awake all night. But I do when I can and have actually stayed in bed for up to twelve hours, and sometimes with even a few hours of sleep all strung together.

In conclusion, take what you want from this piece. There is a vast combination of energy at work, some we can detect and much that remains hidden to us. I asked, in the opening paragraph, if you recall the sky being bluer when you were a child than now.  One often overlooked item that was hyped some time ago involves the star known as Alcyon and a massive Photon Belt, that some believe the earth is now on the outer fringes of, accounting for the shallow blue of our skies. If this is a factor, we are reacting to much more energy than we realize. I have experienced bouts of odd synchronicities and great intuition, followed by a seeming lack, only to have the cycle repeated. Small things you may recognize… having a phase or idea come into your mind, seemingly random, and then encountering that exact phrase or idea in the immediate future or a day later.  What I understand is that this can be a type of communication. My suggestion is that when you recognize a synchronicity occur, like that random meeting with somebody you needed to see or uncovering information that you needed to understand an issue or event, quietly acknowledge that to Spirit. If you want, ask for more and go one step further, if you’re comfortable with the idea. If it has been an unexpected meeting, for example, you might offer to “pay it forward” so to speak. Arrangements were made to position that person specifically for us to meet them, so you might consider offering to be of service to Spirit to do the same for somebody else.

The last point I’ll touch on centers on those old movies of our life, we’ve hidden away, and even felt we came to terms with. At each level of our progression, we are granted proficiency in a limited measure based on our efforts to apply the knowledge we uncover. Sometimes, we are not ready or may lack the right clearing ritual or technique to ensure that that past painful or shameful event no longer can influence us or be used a a tool to influence us. It can be used, according to some, to keep us in a state of feeling helpless or confused. Essentially, it can be regarded as a type of attack. Instead of an outside stimuli, like world events, the energy that these energy parasites feed on can be harvested by one reliving the same event. One suggestion made to directly confront this is to change, like the dream I mentioned earlier, the outcome of the event. How often have you heard people say, “They actually believe their own lies!”?  When a variation of a memory is induced and reinforced regularly, a new reality can overwrite the old memory. One other consideration I will make to you is Raziel’s Sphere Of Confluence tool, which I have used and continue to use for special issues. It is quite powerful and has been of enormous benefit personally to me, for a number of years.

Segmented and broken sleep patterns are taking place, this is a reality, if it has become noticeable in your life. As to the cause of this effect, there are numerous possibilities. I draw no conclusions for anybody but myself and try to take appropriate steps to keep balanced and grounded.  While I have offered personal opinion and experiences involving this subject matter, I do not push those views on anybody. If this piece has been of interest or benefit, I am gratified. No matter, whatever transpires, try to recognize that it is a passing phase, and may well be a crucial one in order for us to achieve our potential.

You may derive some comfort and understanding from this article entitled “Have Your Sleep Patterns Changed Lately?” They have a fascinating piece on “shadow people” that, while I did not address it in this article, may well play a role in our broken and segmented sleep patterns over a given time period.

Another article on ascension, with numerous links found here, might also present some fascinating perspectives that may or may not have relevance – the Photon Belt, Solar Flares and Planet Nibiru.

I extend a very Happy New Year to all. Thank you for being a part of my life.

Namaste, Nick xx

Energies And Urgencies

July 7, 2014

doubledoorlarge

 

If you’re reading this, chances are above average that you have noted a strange sense of energy, which can be almost overwhelming at times.  Numerous sources have suggested that, for varied reasons, this shifting and unfamiliar energy has caused considerable worry or urgency. Common symptoms seem to be mood swings – including bursts of irrational anger – headaches, memory loss, irregular sleep patterns, vivid dreams or a total lack of dream recall, sensing we may have lost contact with our guides or even “God”, and greatly increased self talk or inner dialogue.

Lee Harris sums up the energies that are/will be prevalent during July and August.  Even if you don’t believe in this energy nonsense, I would highly suggest that you check out Lee’s description and see if there are any pertinent factors revealed, that you may observe in your own experiential reality.

 

That was really the lead-in to the purpose of this post, namely a show where I’ll be a guest, tonight at 9PM EST on  The Brenda Tennerelli Show, where we’ll be discussing the energetic shifts and DNA changes that are being reported globally.  Recent news reports  have made global headlines of what they deem to be the first human born with 3 strand DNA.    The report also suggested strongly that humanity in general was undergoing a change at the cellular level.  Dr. Barranda Fox concluded, in her report, a sobering yet fascinating observation.  Scientists and geneticists who are studying this phenomenon cannot predict what this mutation’s end result will be but Dr. Fox contends it may well see humans developing and utilizing abilities deemed as “supernatural”.

 

BLACK MAGIC AND PSYCHIC ATTACKS

There are going to be numerous topics Brenda and I will be discussing but I wanted to take a few minutes to address one issue that most of us have at least considered, namely the status of black magic and psychic attacks.  First off, what is “black magic”? This term is entirely subjective and is determined by the individual.  What is a birthday or anniversary ritual that almost everybody in the western world observes repeatedly? Would you be surprised to know that this is indeed a magical ritual hailing back to pagan roots known as “candle magic”? Candles on a cake may seem harmless to many but consider that the ritual is identical across many cultures.  Make a wish, visualize the want, need or desire and then blow out the candle, symbolically sending your wish to the ether.  An entire branch of magic,  more advanced rituals involve additional actions including carving a sigil or name into the candle to achieve very specific results from very specific entities.

Is this “black magic”? For a devout religious believer, who is aware it is an ancient magical ritual, this could well be considered “black magic”, while others would not bat an eyelash at this revelation.  It is no secret that untold numbers of black magicians observe a creed set forth by Crowley, namely, “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.”  Late in his life, too weak to perform rituals, he tasked three of his followers to perform an energy-intensive and very dangerous ritual called “The Babalon Working“.  Jack Parsons, L. Ron Hubbard and Marjorie Cameron intended to literally open a hole in time/space and allow an entity named Babalon to enter.  Unknown to Crowley, the trio had an additional objective – they wished to create a “moon child”, using sex magic, whereby the entity would enter Parsons and impregnate Marjorie.

From a magician’s point of view, this is a fascinating concept and some may consider this ritual merely grey. Incidentally, the working had considerable negative side effects for each of the participants. L. Ron Hubbard, for example, became paralyzed down the entire right side of his body.  When he recovered, he found he was able to access incredible genius in his writing. Jack Parsons died a short time later in a mysterious chemical fire, while his mother also died under cloudy circumstances.

One might chuckle and draw a parallel with the infamous “King Tut’s Curse”, where numerous members of the expedition seemed to die within a short time span, under strange circumstances.  What is interesting to note is that Howard Carter, one of the first to enter the tomb, lived on for an additional decade.  The question to ask would be: Were the spores a natural phenomenon or were they purposely placed there, thereby validating, to some extent, this was indeed a “curse” with actual physical results?

Is it truly possible to place a “hex” on an individual, as Voodoo and Makumba adherents believe? Robert Bruce has been teaching 1,000’s of people over two decades how to have willed astral projections, maintaining that this is a natural process that almost everybody can do with some practice.  He places great emphasis on “psychic self defense”, as does occult researcher and author Dion Fortune.  On a personal note, my own research and education has involved the teachings and writings ranging from Abremalin’s Sacred Magic to the Ogdoadic tradition’s emphasis on “The Magical Personality”.  In the former, he outlines in great detail a lengthy, six month ritual whereby the magician or sorcerer connects directly to his “Holy Guardian Angel”.  Sounds almost religious but don’t let the holy sounding name fool you. He reveals that the direct connection includes some interesting fringe benefits, namely the services of the four princes of Hell, a number of their servants, as well as lesser entities to be used to charge talismans and amulets.  Establishing one’s own “Magical Personality”, as taught in Ogdoadic traditions, is essentially building up an image of how one appears in the spirit realm, when they interact with entities of that reality.  One aspect is what weapons or defenses that one’s spirit representative will have.

Most children in the west grew up believing that, even as a mere child, they could actually communicate with a reality outside of 3D through a mechanism called prayer.  The vast majority of practicing magicians and witches, based on my own experience and research, regard their workings to be the equivalent of prayer, where they can both interact and request specific wants/needs/desires.  Add to this, there are Hermetic traditions observed in texts like The Kybalion, which outlines the 7 Universal Principles they claimed to be present on all levels of reality.  One of their most well-known axioms, based on the Principle of Correspondence,  is “As above, so below; As below, so above.” Just like “prayers” prevalent in almost all religious and magical systems, it is a commonly held belief that one can ask for and receive some type of “divine intervention” – or whatever one wishes to address it as – in this reality.

In a related belief system, Buddhist monks in Tibet were witnessed and filmed moving an enormous rock several hundred meters, using a precision placement of varying types of horns and human voices and tones.  Obviously the vibrations were responsible for the anti-gravity effect but is there a possibility the same result – or much more – could be achieved with much less noticeable tools? Reiki and most types of energy healing systems share a commonality with Mukumba and Voodoo – they both believe they can interact directly with a person’s energy, albeit for very different reasons.  The term for this type of “Black Magic”, whereby a witch places a hex or curse on an individual, is sympathetic magic.  In brief terms, the premise is this: if an object has been in contact with the individual being cursed – hair, nail clippings, pictures as a few quick examples – it remained energetically attached to the host. It is through this connection – known as a secret sympathy – that the actual black magic spell would flow.

 

What About Psychic Attacks?

This is really the conclusion and focal point of this piece and it here is here that I’ll attempt to render my own observations and insights. As always, I force no single truth or my observations on anybody.  There appear to be two distinct camps, rival sides of polarity, in terms of black magic and psychic adversaries having an ability to interfere with an individual. On one side, some contend that a failure to believe in ill-effects from a spell renders the curse useless while others firmly and fervently trust in the process.

Here’s my “two cents worth”.

I believe fully that each of us can be unduly – and sometimes subtly – “influenced” by forces that we cannot detect with our physical five senses, whether good or  ill intent.  Add to that, we have advertising filled with both sigils and secret symbols, which impact each of us without our conscious awareness.  Any name brand product, that gains popularity, enacts a process that few are truly aware of – creation and continued life of a “meme” or “thought form”.  Consider McDonald’s arches for a second and likely your mind will draw an image and/or feeling immediately.  Another good analogy, of a different type of meme,  would be a German man who has watched all of Sylvester Stallone’s movies, albeit only dubbed in German. He gets the chance to meet his idol and is slightly disappointed to see he is only 5″6″ tall, doesn’t carry pearl handled revolvers nor chew a matchstick.  Globally there are literally millions of Sylvester Stallone fans (in varying degrees), who arrive at his films with certain expectations. This is the meme, which was\is established and maintained solely by the thought energy of the “fans”.

My conclusion is quite simple and you are obviously not obligated to accept it.  Based on my own studies,  the key to at least lessening a negative force that is directed against you and has a detrimental or unwanted effect,  is one’s own vibration. … essentially the mood that we maintain.  If we slip into a negative emotional cycle, for whatever reason,  the “spell” or attack  is a sympathetic vibration to our lowered emotional state.  Additionally, I believe this can be manipulated through both intent and through technology.

The key is is to clear, when we detect ourselves slipping into dark waters.  The methods for this are numerous.  Readjust by taking time out from everything and engage in high vibration activity.  My favorite is using laughter, so one of my tools for coping is taking time to watch comedians.  Some “attacks” may serve to exacerbate a present condition like a headache or flu-like symptoms.  Another area of concern, which is prevalent in most spiritually-aware people,  is our compassion, empathy and sympathy for any living breathing being in pain.  As a consequence, I would suggest limiting one’s exposure to MSM and their “interpretation” of global events.  There is much more to this “infotainment” than meets the eye…. literally.

A final suggestion is to take regular showers or baths –  or when you feel unusual discomfort – and include a pinch of salt.  I can determine when a bad headache is fully internal or is being “assisted” by an outside force and that is simply to immerse my head under the salted water.  More often than not, the pain quickly fades away if the headache isn’t very intense.  When it is migraine level, standing under a strong and pulsing hot shower will sever the connection from outside.  What you’ll most often find is that the headache will seem to bounce around your head, staying for several minutes in one place then switching to another area. To underscore how effective a shower can be,  Robert Bruce’s first action, when he senses an attack, is to quickly hop into the shower. According to him, the flowing and moving water presents a type of dampening field that absorbs and reflects certain vibrations of energy.

If numerous reports and observations from the spiritual community – both modern and ancient – are to be believed,  periods of shifting and intense energy like now provide an ideal medium to speed up our spiritual progress,  through tests and evaluations.  A quote by the present Dalai Llama sums it up succinctly: “The period of greatest gain in knowledge and experience is the most difficult period in one’s life.”

Here’s to the ongoing journey!

 

Namaste, Nick

The New Intuition

Looking at global events unfolding, it is not difficult to see that they are a reflection of what has been taking place within each of us, the micro reflecting the macro.  We can also get a glimpse of energetic polar opposites at play. A recent article suggested that there was an epidemic of mental health problems being reported in growing numbers.  On one side we observe the common cure of a mind or mood altering substance being prescribed while on the other end one minister suggests that it is essentially forbidden to take drugs but rather the individual needed more faith in the Bible and God.  It cannot be denied that there is some type of shifting energy that is affecting all of humanity and it would appear that observing and walking a spiritual path is the essential deciding factor in how this energy impacts on us individually. Each of us finds our own method of energetic transmutation, which often involves increased research into clearing, raising our vibration or defense.

So where is this energy coming from? An initial surface glance might indicate that this chaotic energy is originating in our reality, due to the actions of a few who control much. It is common knowledge that our financial system is riding a very thin rail, and some claim that this is an indication of the old 3D reality crumbling away to make way for the new. Add to that the recognition of seeded souls and walk-ins, and some  terms including Crystals, Indigos, and Rainbows.  Jennifer Hoffman echoes what many other channels and mediums have been suggesting in that, the Indigos are here to break down the old system, while the Crystals and Rainbows are here to essentially pick up the pieces and begin their specialty – creation or rather re-creation.  Based on the evidence, a strong case could be made for the idea that the “elite” are not only well aware of these souls, but are also cognizant of the incoming energies.  And this is an important point.  From alchemical and magical perspectives, advance awareness of incoming energy allows the practitioner to alter it to his/her benefit.  The bottom line: traumatic events transpiring in our 3D reality are one method that this select group, due to their knowledge and etheric connections, can use to transmute the incoming energy for a variety of reasons and purposes. They are, however, only the “effect” component in the Hermetic Principle of Cause And Effect.

After a period of relative inactivity, our sun has begun to behave in very unusual ways.  Noted alchemist and teacher Jim Self suggests a parallel to upgrading our computer’s operating system is taking place within the sun.  There has been a dramatic increase in both CME’s and X Flares, which some contend all contain both energy and information. If the latter is true, as I believe fully, then each of us are likely undergoing an upgrade to their system, enabling them to energetically “decode” the information.

What is developing is what I refer to as The New Intuition and, just like learning to use an entirely new operating system, on an energetic and spiritual level, we are doing much the same with this new energy.  Is it a coincidence that the sun’s increased activity accelerated with the approach of Comet ISON or that some Ufologists claim they have detected some type of huge craft “floating” around the sun, some with obvious wavy tendrils attached to its surface?  Some suggest that they are responsible for re-programming our sun or altering it in some way, some say for good, some say for ill intents.  I would contend, based on my own research, that our sun also serves as a portal between different vibrating realities, and can capture and re-direct energy sent from what is often called the Central Sun.  The energetic changes to our 3D reality are inevitable so long as our sun continues to act as a portal.

Last Saturday, I hosted a show with the delightful Lins Harrison, from The Lins Harrison Show.  One issue we addressed was a recent increase on “invading” thoughts and the need to take very quick action when they arrived. There are numerous sources broadcasting a wide range of energetic emotions and intents, and part of this “upgrade” involves an increased sensitivity to them.  Because of this, it is imperative we find and apply new strategies and defensive measures when we recognize our old tools are no longer assisting to the degree they once were.

This short piece is really just a teaser for my upcoming show on Saturday, December 7 @ 5PM EST of the same title as this post.  Events of the last 2 months especially have been highly instructive but the issues I faced not the most pleasant, something that you have encountered as well, if you’re reading this post.  Adding to the emotional component, many face considerable physical discomfort on a daily basis, compounding the emotional. I’ll be exploring some aspects of shamanic traditions including power animals, levels of reality and its view of how important it is to be able to discern when Spirit speaks. Our animals guides, whether they are our totems , messengers or shadows, do not communicate in English; it is considerably more subtle, especially now, but we can learn to become aware of their messages and purpose.  This also includes our communication with Spirit in other forms that may not be verbal either.  What seems to be taking place, based on my own observations, is a very subtle type of direction or suggested action, that results more and more often in some fascinating “coincidences”.  And even the way we are beginning to interpret is subtle, where we begin asking less questions and simply act.  Something of note is clearly taking place within us that we can’t fully describe or conceptualize fully – just yet. This is part of our” upgade” package and is determined by our need and mission of service.  I’ll be including some of my own observations and insights as well as some new tools that you may find of value.

Sorry for the lack of links but my computer is being testy today…. maybe this energy is kicking her butt as well.

Namaste, Nick

Updating Ascension Symptoms

August 29, 2013

 

Walkingimage

This post is really some shameless promotion for my upcoming show on Friday, August 30, where ‘ll be exploring this topic from a number of perspectives.  It would be a significant task to write a post on these new ascension symptoms and rather lengthy so this show is a much better medium for transmission of this type of information.  What really urged me to set this show up had involved Steve Rother and an event that transpired earlier this month. In one of his channeled messages from The Group, he suggested that August 19 was given as day of great significance. You may recall that was roughly two days before the full moon.

On a personal note, I felt this very strongly. I’ve been working on a project, largely in the mental visualization stage, and I was literally overcome, for a number of hours, with a new dimension to this project. My own observation and understanding is that often our migraines revolve around our pineal gland, and are followed by a noticeable level of clarity in communication with Spirit. One of the symptoms listed by a few researchers indicates an increased level of self talk. This aspect is highly significant and can be accompanied by a shifting of the discomfort to other areas of the brain, including brow and third eye.

I do not push any of my views on anybody or claim to be the only one who knows “the truth”. But it cannot be denied that our bodies are taking a pounding and we can often physically see changes taking place in our personal realities including, of course, sometimes letting go of people from our lives. It can and is unsettling at times, with that tinge of guilt that often seems to be riding on the coat tails. Even activities we once found enjoyable or stimulating – as near as even 6 months ago – no longer seem to hold our interest and we may go through periods where absolutely nothing holds our interest for very long. The result can be a feeling of intense restlessness. While I don’t force any views on anybody, these are observations that have been made from all over the globe, so clearly something of importance is taking place.

If you do wish to pursue this further, here are some suggested links:

The Nature Of Our Reality – Part One

February 19, 2013

“All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force… We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter.”  Max Planck, theoretical physicist and originator of Quantum Theory

Building A Foundational Simulacrum

The word “simulacrum” refers essentially to a likeness or representation of something, and it  took on a new religious meaning around the 16th century.  Since then, one aspect of the definition deals with “copies” of deities, angels and other celestial entities.  As a starting point, in examining the nature of our reality, it is essential to build a foundation that eventually leads to an overall structure – one that is based on numerous sources and in the process uncover  distinctly non-human connections to the chaos we see transpiring daily.

To form this foundation, I reference the above quote by the eminent Max Planck, a man I place in the same genius category as his contemporary Tessla. He states that  whatever is behind or controlling the reality we experience, it is both conscious and intelligent and “…is the Matrix of all matter.”  For many, this resonates as truth and it is true – to some extent.  However, how many times have you heard gurus say, “Change your thoughts and you can change your reality“? If this crucial component is added to Planck’s observation, a whole new world of possibilities opens up.  Instead of simply a  creator god(s) allegedly shaping everything in this reality, it should be obvious that we also have the same ability to alter our reality. It is because of this one aspect that examining the nature of our reality becomes a daunting  task and fortunately we have some guidance from the ancients to assist us.

This series of articles will hardly be comprehensive due to the vastness of the subject matter.  Instead, it will have a central focus that will unveil, in a nutshell, how our reality is affecting those of us on a spiritual journey.  As a launch point, I’ll pose the following observations, which will allow several avenues of exploration to open.

Our reality – all those things which we can detect with our 5 physical senses – is the product of consciousness, which in turn is responsible for the varied vibrations based on intent. In its creation/continued existence, both human and non-human minds (creator gods) play a role.

 Laws of Physics and Universal Principles

If we establish a foundation for exploration based on the above stated observation, then a quick question must be asked and have received a satisfactory answer:  Aren’t there some restrictions in place limiting how much a given reality can be altered?  In 3D, a entire branch of science is devoted to the study of our physical reality called physics.  With the advent of the Renaissance,  great thinkers arose and established many laws that were immutable and ruled how our reality was arranged and configured.  An obvious observation is that all matter is subjected to specific conditions – rules essentially – that govern its formation, life and eventual “death”.  From a more spiritual perspective, we know that death is not the end but rather a transformation process.

Of interest to seekers would be a perspective that is ancient in origin and yet easy to comprehend and apply, with sufficient determination applied obviously.  Many of the ancient mystery schools had initiations that were similar and involved a comprehension and understanding of Universal Principles.  The most widely accepted by occult circles has been based on Hermetic Philosophy and understandable so.  These principles are not revealed to the student simply to understand the nature of our reality…  they were clearly defined rules that were crucial to the success of magical workings and alchemical operations.  Because of this, it is important to examine them briefly to flesh out our foundational simulacrum.

Universal Principles of The Kybalion

1) Principle of Mentalism“The ALL is Mind; the Universe is mental”   This principle states that all things created originate from the mind of The ALL and enacted through an agency known as SPIRIT, which they considered to be unknowable and undefinable.

2) Principle of Correspondence - “As above, so below; as below, so above”  This Principle embodies the truth that there is always a Correspondence between the laws and phenomena of the various planes of Being and Life.

3) Principle of Vibration“Nothing rests, everything moves, everything vibrates”  This Principle explains that the differences between different manifestations of Matter, Energy, Mind, and even Spirit, result largely from varying rates of Vibration.

4) Principle of Polarity“Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths”  This principle is used very successfully by groups and individuals, in places of authority, who wish to see tensions rise.  False flags operations, especially in the US, have been shown to elicit essentially two vastly opposing views – those supporting gun ownership and those who have been brainwashed into believing the propaganda and oppose gun ownership. Remember, two sides to every story?

5) Principle of Rhythm –   “Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall”  This principle explains that there is a rhythm in all things created and if you look closely, it can be observed. We see this every day with the predictable rise and fall of our sun. The great Thoth, in his Emerald Tablets, considered the utilization of this principle to be crucial for predicting the future.  By observing the unfolding of events from the past, we can get a reasonably accurate forecast of the future, in general terms at least.

6) Principle of Cause and Effect - “Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a name for Law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the Law.”  It explains that: “Everything Happens according to Law”; that nothing ever “merely happens”; that there is no such thing as Chance.

7) Principle of Gender“Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes.”  This Principle embodies the truth that there is GENDER manifested in everything–the Masculine and Feminine Principles ever at work. This is true not only of the Physical Plane, but of the Mental and even the Spiritual Planes. On the Physical Plane, the Principle manifests as SEX, on the higher planes it takes higher forms, but the Principle is ever the same.

As you can see, reality becomes quite complex, when viewed through the added lens of ancient wisdom. In the least, it is comforting to know that, if these principles truly have merit – which I believe fully – then there is some type of order that limits any one entity – aside from The ALL –  from rearranging creation. There are some laws governing our reality that are immutable and cannot be ignored, bullied, bargained with or destroyed.

In summation of Part One, I’ll conclude with an updated observation of our reality, based on all the factors we have on hand.

Our reality and all created matter within it is the result of a conscious force – both human and non-human – that produces substance through intent and vibration.  All created matter is subject to the laws of created things.

In Part Two, we’ll add another crucial element – the involvement of non-human entities.

Namaste, Nick

Mystics, Seers and Their Dark Visions

August 21, 2012

The Devil Is In The Details

There is an enormous body of both written and verbal accounts of individuals who could allegedly predict future events. Those who issue prophecies can be found in practically all civilizations, through our many ages of mankind and involve the near as well as far future of a given group… or humanity as a whole.  Many who are familiar with some, especially if attached to a belief system, would assume that these arrived from their God, through His/Her messenger via some type of psychic process.  Unfortunately, in the age of the internet, where enlightened minds are able to analyze objectively, it is very obvious there are other, more “human” factors which play an equal or  greater role.  Therefor, it is essential to uncover these factors. You will quickly begin to see that, by adding this additional  perspective, underlying “tones” and hidden symbology of prophecies becomes more apparent.

The Kybalion is an ancient text of Hermetic Philosophy and serves as a firm foundation for initiates into  many magical schools and mystery traditions.  Studied intensely and rigorously applied by the likes of Aleister Crowley, it outlines essentially the 7 Hermetic Principles, also known as Universal Principles, which are present on every level of reality.  To begin to unlock some of the mysteries inherent to  prophecies and even arcane texts, a basic understanding of these principles is essential.

1) Principle of Mentalism - “The ALL is mind; the universe is mental”  – This asserts that all things in creation emanate from the mind of The ALL, with both Its permission and awareness.  The text is quite explicit in its assertion that if a student cannot grasp this principle, they cannot progress spiritually.

2) The Principle of Correspondence“As above , so below; As below, so above”  –  This states that there is a “correspondence” between events on different realities. What transpires on a higher vibrating reality will be reflected on the lower and vice versa.  A good example can be found in the methodology involved with the Law of Attraction. A crucial component is creating a reality, in some form, where one has already received their want/need/desire and are actively enjoying its use. To draw that “dream” into this reality, one must set up a correspondent energy that attracts that to them.

3) The Principle of Vibration - “Nothing rests; Everything moves; Everything vibrates” -  The universe is never at rest and all objects in creation vibrate, the difference being in degree.

4) The Principle of Polarity - “Everything is dual, everything has poles;  all truths are but half truths; Opposites are identical in nature but opposite in degree” –  Because we live in a polarized reality, it appears we face only two choices when making a decision on a given issue.  We tend to view events and people as being  good or bad, right or wrong and positive or negative.  Polarity is a reality and can be both a blessing and a curse, depending on whether a student uses this principle…. or is used by it.  A major part of the skills development of many alchemists is known as transmutation, the act of changing from one state to another.  This involved directly affecting the vibrations both within them and those around them to state in which the wild swings of emotional energy would be minimized.  Proverbs 15:1 could easily be considered an alchemical “formula” for this transmutation process and an excellent example of this principle’s application:

A soft answer turns away wrath but harsh words stir up fury.” (World English Bible)

5) The Principle of Rhythm - “Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall” -  This refers, of course, to cosmic cycles, which transpire in a given reality dependent on its Divine Plan.  Kingdoms rise, kingdoms fall, summer follows spring just as night follows day – these are quick examples of rhythm.  By understanding that historical events have distinctive “markers” or sequence, it becomes easier to “predict” what may happen, based on recognizing and observing  them.

6) The Principle of Cause and Effect“Every cause has its effect, every effect has its cause; everything happens according to Law” -  This is integral – as are all these principles –  to ensure perpetual motion in the universe, where a given cause or stimuli results in an effect, which in turn becomes a cause itself, continuing the endless cycle.

7) The Principle of Gender“Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes.” –  The Gnostics are good examples of applying this principle to their belief system and, hence, their very way of life. They recognized that “The ALL”  contained both male and female aspects and one of the major reasons that the many sects of early Christianity despised them.  This belief ran counter to their message that included female subservience and male dominance – not to mention a singular male god –  and they were ruthless in their persecution of Gnostics.

As you can see, the principles do provide an added perspective that may perhaps assist in unlocking  hidden meanings and messages.  Are there other “human” factors that we can employ? The answer is decidedly yes, according to many including the site Morgana’s Observatory.  She highlights a number of things that we tend to take for granted but in reality play a bigger role than we could imagine. They are highlighted below, along with my own insight or understanding

1) A thorough knowledge of the cycles of “history” –  I deem this to be crucial, not just long term but short term history as well.  This is all about recognizing patterns or events that precede or follow a directional change in this timeline.  Nothing is static and everything moves and changes, marked by our perception of  time.

2) Careful detached observation of the recent past and the present –  The key word is detached or objective.  It is easy to become emotionally stirred as a result of events but to find its truth – for us – requires that detachment for clarity’s sake.

3) More than a passing familiarity of human nature –  This really echoes the Principles of Polarity, Vibration and Rhythm, where the majority of people will react in a given way, when confronted with the same stimuli.  People can be somewhat predictable in their responses and hence, will often behave and react in a similar fashion.

4) Meditation, contemplation, ability to eliminate one’s thoughts, biases, desires – This really is only logical, given that we complete a task  more quickly when we can focus  both our physical and mental processes on it. Essentially, to be objective one is required to be clear-headed and free from preconceived notions or programmed and limiting beliefs.

5) Intuition, common sense and compassion – The importance of these factors cannot be overlooked or underestimated. We employ intuition on a regular basis, most often without full recognition on our part.  To me, however, from an energetic perspective, the inclusion of compassion is crucial. If we seek answers in state of low vibration such as anger or greed, the energy that we connect with reflects that and enhances it.  In short, we lose objectivity due to the low vibrational emotional energy. Compassion allows one to step outside of and above a given event, where the perspective is not one of laying blame but rather acceptance – acceptance that it has some purpose within a Divine Plan or blueprint and those involved are merely playing their own supporting role.  A further and essential addition here, from my perspective, is humility.

 

I urge you to  apply this knowledge each time you are confronted with prophecies and predictions. Ultimately, we  must decide what our own truth is and isn’t.  When we can identify the underlying and often hidden aspects of predictions of what is and will be happening, we have an added tool in our spiritual toolbox.  Contrary, to what many may believe, our future is not written in stone. Certainly, we each arrived with a role to act out within this divine play,  which some deem as proof that the future is immutable and cannot be changed, often because their god has decreed that.  It presents a paradox because those with this belief also claim we have free will, but one that is easily understood if the lenses of bias are removed.  While we do play a role, how we achieve that purpose is where our free will is involved. In other words, we can choose to fly, drive or take the train and along the way encounter experiences that are necessary to complete our cosmic contract.

Sacred Alchemy, REBT and The Sixth Night – Tools for Ascension

September 25, 2011

“Banish the word ‘struggle’ from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. We are the ones we have been waiting for.” — Hopi elders

Many years ago, during a very difficult time in my life, I was exposed to a psychological model known as Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy that had profound effects on how I viewed “reality” around me.  Pioneered by Dr. Albert Ellis, it was based largely on the observations of the well-known Greek philosopher Epictetus, who determined that “Man is not dismayed by events… but rather by  his interpretation of events.” Using this as a guide, a newcomer to this psychological model is presented with an entirely new way of seeing how their perspective of a given situation is but one of many.

Many of you are already practicing this in your daily interactions with others… without fully realizing it.  Rendering a cheery good morning will elicit a variety of responses, some “positive” and some “negative”.  I have purposely put quotations around these two words because they bear further exploration.  Something being positive or negative is an indication of how indoctrinated we are to this world of duality we presently are temporary residents of.  Regarding your morning greeting, chances are some will respond to you with a glare of animosity and others will return it, in varying degrees.  In the former, you always have a choice how to view the apparent animosity, when all you did was say good morning.

REBT teaches that we have a very limited perspective of reality, based on our upbringing, experiences, religious orientation and observations.  One of those “sad sacks” may be feeling under the weather, their child may be experiencing difficulties or there may even have been a recent death in the family. These are all very personal issues and many do not air their laundry in public, so to speak. Your cheery greeting may well be a very uncomfortable reminder of the problems they face and the joy they now lack. Am I suggesting that you cross examine the person until you obtain the reason for his/her response? Of course not.

So what would be a “rational” response to this, based on REBT? First, recognition that you do not know all things, especially the private life of another individual. Secondly, acknowledge that your intent of giving positive energy – by way of your greeting – was done to share your joy or happiness with others. Thirdly, accept that just because you think that everyone should respond to your greeting in the same way, it is not reality and is extremely unfair to the one who may well be hurting intensely.  You have a choice of allowing their low vibration to affect you, where you respond in kind and keep that negativity alive or…. you can accept that they’re having a bad day and do not take it personally.

An additional personal example will shed a bit more light on this.  Several years ago, I spent Christmas holidays with a brother. On Christmas Day, we drove to his boss’s house in the country and it was a beautiful day. The temperature was about 60 degrees and I wanted to do something I had never done done before – I wanted to have a beer outside with my brother on that special day and consequently was able to do that.  On the same day, a child received a brand new toboggan as a present but was unable to use their new toy because the snow had all but melted.  Here we have two very different perspectives that were both negative and positive but pertained to the exact same event – a warm day in the middle of winter.  To me, it was very positive because of my perspective but to the young child, wanting to use their toboggan in the snow, there was disappointment. Same event, different perspectives and different reactions – but each was in response to the same event.

Please re-examine the initial quote at the start of this short piece and see if you can recognize REBT in its words.  No doubt, it is glaringly obvious to you now.  What you may not realize is that this altering of perspectives –  our viewpoint of a given situation – is actually based on the ancient art of alchemy. In several of Lord Raziel’s messages, he has stressed the importance of applying sacred alchemy to alter the energy in a given situation or event, allowing its effects to be dramatically reduced or eliminated.  For example, in Proverbs there is an extremely powerful alchemical recipe: “A soft answer turneth away wrath.” Sounds simple , almost too simple, doesn’t it? However, many of you have already applied this to tense situations and have seen the results. One party raging in anger at another, while you stand quietly by and offer to work out a suitable solution or compromise.  Store managers use this recipe as part of their job and yet regard it simply as customer service. This is not always an easy thing to do, especially when there is considerable anger or animosity.  The key is to utilize this recipe consistently for with experience comes great wisdom.

One of the most difficult components to understand about this reality we are living in temporarily is known as duality. Ancient Hermeticists referred to the law governing this as the Principle of Polarity which states that “opposites are the same, differing only in degree”, “all truths are but half truths” and “in everything there are two poles, or opposite aspects, and that ‘opposites’ are really only the two extremes of the same thing, with many varying degrees between them. To illustrate: Heat and Cold, although “opposites,” are really the same thing, the differences consisting merely of degrees of the same thing.” This may boggle your mind and for most people, a slide comes up in the 3D conscious mind that fights against this. How is it possible that love and hate can be the same thing but opposite as well? What kind of twisted logic am I trying to peddle here?

The key is to regard those two, just as examples – love and hate – not as actual “things” but rather as energetic vibrations that can be altered.  It is not too difficult to see, for most people, if you take a moment.  Someone close to you, whom you have a strong affection for, betrays you. That “love” you once had is shattered to some degree, resulting in an energetic change to disappointment in the least to all-our hatred as the other extreme.  These are simply varying degrees of the same energy that has been altered. Many of you are aware of how quickly it can be altered so that should give you a clue:  If love can turned to anger or hate in an instant, then it stands to reason that we have the ability to apply positive energy to it, transforming it to a form that does not have a negative effect on us.  Harboring ill will or anger affects our overall energy, which can be enormously draining. From an alchemical perspective, it is referred to as transmutation – applying a higher vibration to over come a lower one.

A quick side note that may shed some light as to how one actually applies alchemy to these types of situations. I offer this for a very specific reason, which I will detail below and is extremely important, especially during these 3 days, which the Maya referred to as the beginning of the “Sixth Night”.  For some time, during my awakening, I was literally plagued with a fair amount of rage at people who had injured me badly.  In times of need, never doubt that Spirit will bring along what you require to assist you… but They will not do the work for you. It was suggested that each time a nightmare played out in my mind of the abuse, I was to stop everything I was doing and close my eyes. The important component was to visualize standing in front of them, and then reaching out a hand (I will freely admit that I couldn’t do this at first) shaking it and saying this:  “I FORGIVE YOU AND I WISH YOU WELL.” And then turning and walking away.  The first several times, I simply went through the motions and then one day, I completed this exercise and was astounded to find that I actually meant it.  Instead of the handshake, I was actually able to visualize giving them a hug (this took considerably more attempts), speaking the words of power and empowerment and then turning and walking away. This took quite some time but it was incredibly effective and a prime example of one way to alter – or transmute – the lower vibration of anger to a different degree or rate of vibration.

It is imperative that I do add a quick note here.  We are given these physical vehicles to experience the reality of 3D and are responsible for its maintenance.  I am NOT – in any way – stating or implying that we should not take steps to defend ourselves from physical harm. If you would fight with your last breath defending a loved one, you must learn that this is how you must regard this physical vehicle that has served you faithfully and allowed you to learn and grow.  The line is crossed, however, when one uses or threatens the use of harm or injury on another.  My point is that you would gladly give your life for your child… you are just as loved by The Divine Creator, and the Divine Plan requires your unique help to see it to fruition.  It is never wrong to take steps to ensure your own safety.

THE SIXTH NIGHT

Which brings us to the main focus of this post – the Mayan Sixth Night, which is presently occurring, September 23 – 26. Many of you are feeling the effects of this and for good reasons.  According to CJ Calleman, there are three more incidents of  “Cosmic Convergence” that are to occur between now and the end of the Mayan calendar – Oct. 28, 2011 – and each will be more powerful and intense than the last.  Yes, many believe that the calendar ends on Dec. 21/2012 but I do not believe this to be accurate. In fact, I believe it is purposeful manipulation of translation, and it has not been done for reasons that benefit humanity, but rather to lull us into a false sense of security.  I will add to this at the end of the post.  These waves of energy that are now hitting earth during this Sixth Night are extremely intense, as many of you can attest, and are of paramount importance,  in terms of this ascension process. The disturbing aspect for many is that not all will be ready for this process when we do reach the pinnacle of the Seventh Day on 11/11/11.  In fact, based on what my own spiritual sources have told me, there will be only a very tiny percentage of the whole who will be able complete this transformation at that time.

This is partly due to the numerous mixed messages being channeled by numerous entities, each claiming to know all things. Any entity that tells you this is being deceptive. Additionally, while I’m on this, please be very careful about messages that claim to be from enlightened ET’s. For example, the Galactic Federation claims, through many of its alleged representatives, that when they finally arrive, they are going to share wondrous new technology with us that will transform the way we live.

QUESTION: If we are aware that Mother Earth is transiting to the 5th density, with many humans with her, why would be in need of new technology for the old earth? Please think about that….

ANSWER:  I will not force my insights on anybody but will try to explain, based on my own insight and what I have been told by my spirit team, including Lord Raziel.  There will be a “fist wave” of souls who will undergo the transformation process and their job is to pave the way for others to follow. At present, not one ET will tell you exactly what the  ascension process entails in its entirety, in terms of what will happen physically or energetically. They will give vague explanations and flowery ‘feel good” messages about how glorious it will be but not how the process actually happens – how quickly or slowly it will be, in terms of duration.  Another component of this is a bit more sinister and the reason I and many others have implored you to be very wary of tall promises from ET’s that may or may not be who they claim to to be.

For example… one of the many entities who allegedly speaks for the Galactic Federation is known as the Ascended Master Kuthumi.  It may surprise you to know that this being was the one channeled largely by Madame Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society. Her group started a publishing company originally called LUCIFER PRESS.  Originally started in 1922 to publish the writings of Madame Blavatsky, including Isis Unveiled,  by Alice Bailey and her husband, they had to change the name to LUCIS TRUST for obvious reasons. Now here’s the kicker…. LUCIS TRUST PRINTS AND DISSEMINATES  MUCH OF THE MATERIALS FOR THE UNITED NATIONS.  It gets even darker, in Alice Bailey’s own words. In an Alice Bailey book called “Education for a New Age”; she suggests that in the new age “World Citizenship should be the goal of the enlightened, with a world federation and a world brain.” In other words – a One World Government New World Order.

Are you beginning to see the threads unraveling? These things are not coincidental. Consider this…

“To this end, the Lucis Trust, under the leadership of Foster and Alice Bailey, started a group called ‘World Goodwill’ – an official non-governmental organization within the United Nations. The stated aim of this group is ‘to cooperate in the world of preparation for the reappearance of the Christ’.” [One Earth, the magazine of the Findhorn Foundation, October/November 1986, Vol. 6, Issue 6, p.24.]

And who is this “Christ?” It is none other than Lucifer, according to Blavatsky and her followers.

She claims that religion has it totally backward….. the one known as Christ in religion is really a dark entity while Lucifer is the true Morning Light, the true Christ. Make of this what you will but the main component that I wished to bring to your attention is that Kuthumi, Sananda, and Morya were the entities that she channeled for her series of books that established the tenets of the Theosophical Society.

Confusing, no? My apologies for the side note but my mentors have been adamant that this is brought to the attention of those who have the ears to hear.

So why all of these seemingly random threads, when the title suggests tools for ascension? As I mentioned, my understanding is that there will be an initial wave who will be occupying the same types of positions that our spirit guides now occupy. They are the way-showers and include the well-known “144,000”, plus the “Twelve and One”.  Some will be going directly to upper 5D to assist in that density, while others will be transiting between 5D and 3D,  bringing the real message of the Divine Creator to the masses, many of whom will refuse to listen. The stories of “miracles’ performed by the Christed One are not fantasy and will be displayed by this first wave.

Which brings us to a conclusion of this piece –  for now.  Carl Johann Calleman has given two suggestions that we must incorporate into our lives, especially now during this Sixth Night:

1)  Committing to consistently let divine guidance rather than our egos decide our actions and the direction of our lives.

2) Declaring our independence from the dark side including surrendering the right to use the dark side to fight the dark side in others.

He suggests that what we set in place now, during this Sixth Night, will become permanent as we enter into the Seventh Day.

This post may contain aspects that some will find troubling, others who will deny and still others who will seek out their own answers. Of the three, I would highly suggest the final option – seek out answers for yourself.  Any school student will tell you that it is hardly practical to consider writing a thesis and using only one source of reference.  How much more significant is this Ascension than a simple thesis?

Namaste,

And don’t be shy to check out some of my recorded poetry from my Sword of the Seven Stars Album.  My personal favorites:

Sword of the Seven Stars :  A cosmic sentinel is tasked with delivering a newly-made soul to its host but this is no ordinary assignment. The soul essence is on a covert mission that becomes inextricably linked with the sentinel. Behind Lucifer’s back, a demon mage has hatched a plot to foment a rebellion on the lower planes, while the Grand Proctor hatches his own plot to steal souls.

Cosmic Draft:  A cosmic sentinel completes his training and begins his role with pride but is soon stopped cold by a prince of night – the pretender. The prince has enormous resources at his disposal and it may be impossible for the sentinel to get a place of safety where he can rally allies.

Bright Demon :  A soul finally completes its training, under the 7 Lords, stepping into its cosmic role as a sentinel. To stop the slaughter of a defenseless race, he takes their general prisoner, and prompts the rage of a prince of night. With a massive army at his disposal, the sentinel becomes his next target.
