ITEMS OF INTEREST AND THE DEFAULT PRINCIPLE

January 26, 2016

Today marks one month since the passing of a lady whom I consider to have been one of the greatest minds of our time… and yet, to the vast majority of humanity she is relatively unknown. Known as DM Murdoch or Acharya S, she drew equal acclaim from both noted scientists as well as scholars of religion. She was respected as not only being an avid researcher but also one who could remain objective. It was she who began a paradigm, which quickly took flight among those exposed to her work, that she referred to as The Mythicist Position. (The link above has a direct link to her short Youtube presentation on this.)  Essentially, she postulates that at opposite poles we have theism and then atheism. She suggests that, based on her extensive research, these two extremes are not the only options, when it comes to our personal truth about how we view myth and religion. DM Murdoch not only left behind an extensive array of accumulated knowledge, but a hugely positive impact on all who were acquainted with her integrity and objectivity.

To anybody who is somewhat acquainted with Universal Principles, The Mythicist Position is excellent reinforcement for validity of The Principle of Polarity. The central text for Hermetic philosophy, known as The Kybalion, describes this extremely important principle like this:

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 degrees; extremes meet; all truths are but half truths; all paradoxes can be reconciled.

Consider also, when it comes to establishing what happened at a crime scene and there are two witnesses, with varying “truths”, most police will tell you that the real truth is somewhere in the middle. We also have a much more personal example of this, which includes acknowledgement of our “dark side”. How often have you been told to essentially flee from that part of you, equating that part of you somehow to evil? Many gurus will reinforce that we must always resonate in love and light and shun that part of us that evokes, through its actions/desires, low vibration emotions. Rajie Kabli penned an excellent article – which is well worth the read –  on how to actually embrace that “dark” part of us. It is important to consider that our shadow self has its own wisdom, that could well save one’s life. When we think the best of people and are considering placing our trust in them, this dark side is extremely adept at times in identifying and recognizing dishonesty.

 

SOME INTERESTING ITEMS TO PONDER

If one can apply the Principle of Polarity, as it relates to world events, the following becomes self evident. Based on what I have observed about our reality, there has been a very conscious decision made, at some point, to utilize a divide and conquer strategy for domination and/or control. Through cunning manipulation, a paradigm has been established that each of us MUST be on either one side or another on any issue, which contradicts universal principles. It takes minimal research to see this being played out through mass media but a relatively recent attempt caught my attention for a number of reasons.

Known as The Flat Earth Theory, it is the equivalent of teaching “Intelligent Design” as being real science. It’s proponents contend, essentially, that NASA has been deceiving the world with images of a round earth. The earth, they state, is really a flat disk. The sun is not 92 million miles away but rather just a few thousand. Additionally, these theorists suggests that this disk we live on is ringed by a 150 foot wall of ice.  If “all truths are but half truths”, as written in The Kybalion, how are we to view this assertion that we are living on a disk and not a sphere? Does this mean that there is some truth to it?

To understand the nature of subterfuge, one will almost always encounter misdirection. Mastering this is absolutely essential to any stage magician. So, digging a bit deeper into this flat earth theory – and the polarity principle applies that all truths are but half truths – then there must be both honest and dishonest components involved here, both seen and hidden. To assist further in this quick analysis, we can refer again to Universal Principles, chiefly one known as “Cause and Effect”, and one we are all well acquainted with. In applying this in any alchemical operation, the practitioner must be exact, in terms of what effect they wish to achieve. And only then, would a responsible alchemist or magician focus on how the effect is manifested and what forces to apply. So now there are two interlocking questions which must be addressed:

What is the REAL purpose/desired outcome and who will it effect the most?

One further aspect is worth mentioning here. I have noted with some curiosity that those who write articles about this theory are almost militant in defending it. Rather than address the issue or contradiction, the authors all go ad hominem on any who have disagreements. Some have claimed that this “theory” was designed to draw attention away from other events taking place and that its effects are being closely monitored. There is an eerie parallel between the advancement of this theory and the advancement of the human-caused global warming scam. There is some evidence that the global warming campaign was actually initiated by a private think tank known as the Club Of Rome.

It is here that I will leave this issue, hopefully providing you with a bit of clarity and direction, and move on. The apparent “effect” that is observed can be misleading.

The polarity principle is easily observed globally, and in varying degrees. On a more personal level, we also observe this. A friend inquires “How are you?” with an automatic response of “I’m OK.” We’ve all seen people literally both crying and smiling, giving the same response. Obviously there are many, many varying degrees of “OK”.

There are inherent risks involved in employing the principle of cause and effect, however, if all factors are not considered in the planning stage. Consider a farmer who sets fire to his fields to burn away the old vegetation. It gets out of control and burns down several buildings and homes of neighbors. Perhaps he didn’t account for the strong wind or perhaps the overall dryness of the area, the consequences were not what he expected or anticipated in his planning stage as an “effect”.

Or perhaps….

The fire getting out of control and burning down houses may not have been a simple accident. There are a wide range of possibilities, some that may involve collusion with his neighbors. Who and what are most effected by this fire? Many investigators, working on the axiom of “Follow the money” will tell you that they play close attention to one basic question: who benefits?

Applying this globally, the effect of some propaganda – usually with a view to injure or vilify a person, idea or nation – can actually have the exact opposite effect than anticipated. One story I have loved since I first heard it involves a very determined lady, who chose to transmute energy, amid the condescending behavior she encountered. In the early 70’s, a lady began baking a special and new type of cookie, and then began approaching large manufacturers to gauge their interest in these new cookies. In every case she was turned down and even ridiculed by some, claiming that people only wanted a crunchy cookie, not the chewy kind she was baking. That lady was Debbie Fields, the founder of Mrs. Field’s Cookies.

 

THE DEFAULT PRINCIPLE

Looking at the size and reach of Mrs. Field’s Cookies, it becomes obvious that innumerable factors are in play, for a lady to go from baking cookies at home to a multi-national company. I think part of the answer lies in the company description, one particular component especially. It states that, “the Mrs. Field’s name quickly became associated with warm, freshly baked cookies right out of the oven.” I would contend, that in her planning phase, one major consideration was to bring joy and pleasure to people and it was one aspect that she did not compromise on. This also provides some evidence that establishing a foundation for a successful positively-viewed business should be aimed at customer satisfaction, as opposed to profit. An additional consideration is in the art of cooking, where many will suggest that a meal prepared in love can pass on that love energy, when they consume the food.

Another important area to quickly explore is whether this was all chance and good luck, or are there entities moving pieces behind the scenes, to set up chance encounters? If so, as I contend, then how can we utilize them responsibly and ethically? You likely already communicate requests to your guides/angels/Prime Creator but I would suggest that sometimes this is not the most efficient way to accomplish this. It is the equivalent of calling up a company CEO with a detailed, extensive order. For that order to be filled, he is then forced to filter that down to the numerous people required to make it, pack it, and then ship it. Whereas, if the order is given directly to the foremen and workers together, each is made fully aware of the part they play in completion of the work order.

Now, consider something else, that is somewhat related. Some people arm their security network before they leave their home for an extended length of time. This automatically sets a number of things in play, by default. If the alarm is tripped, there is supposed to be an immediate response from the monitoring security company. Unable to reach the owners, they then call the police, who then dispatch officers to the scene. This could be referred to as the “default setting”. This tool, The Default Principle, addresses this very angle, namely a method whereby certain actions are taken by “Spirit”, without requiring our consent for them to assist or take action each and every time.

Rather than an explanation, I will give a few examples of how I employ this invaluable tool and you will quickly see the powerful potential of it.

1) Like many others, before eating a meal, it is imperative that I ask a blessing on/for whatever I’m about to eat. For me, there are several components – gratitude for the meal, appreciation for the hands that prepared it, if meat, apology to the source, which gave their life, and an intent on how I want the food energy used. I am uncomfortable with a lengthy prayer, with bowed head, while out in public, so I agreed with Spirit to utilize a default setting. I addressed Spirit, requesting this. I listed every aspect I thought imperative in a food blessing prayer and requested they take action on, when I performed a very specific action. In this case, I sit down, bow my head, place my hands on either side of the meal for 2 seconds, then touch my heart chakra with one,…. and then open my eyes. So, it is understood by Spirit that each time I take this action with my hands, I am automatically setting in motion – now by default – each protocol and intent established with them. Essentially, this shortens the time requirements.

2) Abundance in its many forms is a necessity to live in this 3D environment. A major driving force and one that can take enormous effort sometimes, is providing for our needs. We all have basic needs that must be met. While we do get cues from our guides, sometimes we have difficulty in understanding them. My belief is that a group of entities known as the Runners are the real “movers and shakers” behind the scenes so I addressed them, as a group, to establish a default setting. I gave them my full permission to take action on my behalf – without needing my permission each time – to ensure that my needs were met.  This agreement is one of my most important and effective.

3) Leaving home each day and facing the world, there is another application of this Default Principle. For me, there are 3 key requests/requirements I find to be most important. First is a request to share the Love and Light of the Divine Creator with at least one soul, secondly that my escort of protection accompany me and lastly, offer my services to the Runners, to “pinch hit” for them. Consider, if they can arrange events with people, without their conscious awareness, obviously they may have need of a willing helper. In this case, as you can see, addressing just one group is insufficient; separate rituals must be held with each group separately. Here’s where the default setting comes in. Sometimes I am in a hurry and forget to make these requests when I leave my home. What was agreed was that, each time I left my apartment, the three requests would automatically be made, with ensuing actions set in motion.

 

Many already understand that Spirit cannot take action unless specifically requested. This is a clear indication of how much power we truly possess, which we all too often forget. The key (and secret) to wielding this “power” responsibly and ethically lies in collaboration with Spirit in its many forms.  In my own experience of using this tool for several years, I’ve noted some very unusual occurrences, especially in the area of having my needs supplied. There is an added element of intuition, which often is the slight prodding of Spirit, shining a cosmic light on a desired or needed action I should take.

Working with Spirit in this way, I have also noted a rapid awareness and understanding of certain events and issues, as well as suddenly developing metaphysical and/or spiritual interests. One of the most pleasant aspects is that Spirit will place me in a position where negative energy is present, but I am regarded by both sides as both friendly and impartial. The key is energy. In one case, a couple suddenly came into my life with an unusual relationship and a considerable amount of negativity. I was a calming force at certain times and, oddly enough, they turned out to be in a position to assist in fulfilling a few basic needs for me several times.

As you can see, when utilizing the Default Principle tool, it is essential to be extremely precise. A slight precaution needs to be expressed here; it can be used for both positive and negative intentions. I regard this tool as a form – and the true essence – of sorcery, where one utilizes both Spirit and Source energy to achieve a specified result or condition. In the area of abundance, we may wish the Runners to continually be on the look out for sources of money, or we may make a one-time request for the funds to pay off a bill. An extremely important component, in either case, is that its arrival does not come at the expense of harm or injury to another. (Think Monkey’s Paw.)

Lastly, the suggestions made above on how to use this tool effectively and ethically are only suggestions and guidelines. I found, as I used it more and more that I innately knew when to – and when not to – employ this tool. The result is a new type and a new level of communication that many of us have not previously experienced. You will likely find you are directed to certain ideas or teachings that previously held little attention or that you were not even aware of. When you begin to consciously become aware  this is happening, you can feel great joy because you have officially become a valued and trusted co-worker of Spirit.

 

I have been led to explore some shamanic tools for the last few months and it has been quite fascinating. For instance, many believe in a central type of Akashic Records. Some shamanic beliefs go even further and state that we each have our own personal Record Keeper, one which we can learn to communicate and interact with. As a result, I have been interacting with one guide in particular much more frequently. In his last life, he was an extremely powerful and respected heyoka. I just began experimenting with “Shadow Walking” and will be presenting a report after much more experimentation.

I’ll sign off with a very heartwarming story that may have overtones of this very blog post – Bored Teen Sits At A Mall Piano.

And don’t forget you can check out a wide assortment of my recorded poetry, all written in the genre of metaphysical fiction, on my Tindeck site.

THERE ARE BLUE COWS IN CHINA

December 17, 2015

doubledoorlarge

If the last several weeks have been filled with an above-average amount of turmoil and/or trials, rest assured you are not alone. It is in response to this that I feel compelled to pen my observations, which are based on several on-going issues which, at their core, promote a false dichotomy of “us and them”. It was a somewhat recent announcement from China that triggered my mind into putting some puzzle pieces together but at the same time, adding a few more.

Modern Farmer reported on December 1 of this year that China was in the completion process of a mass cloning initiative involving, according to the sources, facilities to clone up to 100,000 cows annually to provide an enhanced food source. This has, understandably, raised many eyebrows and objections but the reality, no matter how vehemently one denies it, is that human beings can now recreate life, at will…. we can now do what most religiously-oriented humans still attribute to only their gods. Without doubt, there are vast moral and ethical considerations, even from outside of the 3 main messianic religions.

National Geographic posted an article regarding the creation of fluorescent mice that was both fascinating and yet disturbing at the same time. It provides a glimpse into the methodology, and hence mind-set, of the scientists involved in this program. Mice were being genetically manipulated at the cellular level to be “born” with an existing condition or disease, often one that was fatal. One of the most disturbing facts about this process is the use of a stripped down version of the HIV virus leaving only the most virulent part, known as the retrovirus. This becomes the agent of delivery and ensures the programmed condition reaches completion.

A good analogy for the above would be this: A weak king hires an army of ruthless soldiers to storm an opposition’s castle, where they proceed to remove and destroy all defensive measures they encounter. The end result is the king entering and sitting on the new throne. From that moment on, those who are not willing or necessary to fulfill the king’s demands are imprisoned or executed while all others are tasked solely with the king’s agenda. His hired soldiers have the ability to destroy any defense through force or subterfuge.

A DARK AGENDA?

One intriguing aspect of this announcement of mass cloning centers on how animals in general are viewed by other cultures, namely Buddhism and Hinduism. An apt example can be seen in the movie “Seven Years In Tibet” starring the very talented Brad Pitt. The workers become quite agitated and refuse to continue working because they’ve uncovered a massive number of earthworms on the construction site. Initially, Pitt’s character is incapable of understanding why minor little worms should have any significance until his foreman explains their beliefs. Based on how one treats others in this lifetime has a huge impact on that soul’s next incarnation, which can involve a life in the body of a so-called lower life form – like an earthworm, a mouse and even a cow. While followers of the messianic religions would scoff at this notion, one must keep in mind that Hinduism and Jainism, for example, are far, far older and have an almost equivalent number of followers, according to recent stats. 

At what point does a soul spark enter the physical host? Is the process autonomous or are knowledge-specific entities needed for this “injection”? And how about the soul spark itself? Is it truly able to employ freewill as to choice in incarnation or can that decision be forced on it by coercion or trickery? With most westerner’s holding a completely different view of the after life as those in the east, how is it all souls are supposed to go to specific places upon physical death that are completely different, if there is only one creator and one Source?

Robert Monroe has been recognized as a pioneer and scientist, exploring numerous realms of the astral. One contention he made was that there were types of “belief specific” realms, where souls were directed, upon death, and based on the specific beliefs of the individual soul. Essentially, there are an enormous number of afterlife destinations in the astral for a soul to “migrate” to…. or to be sent or escorted. He furthered suggested that there was a type of “heaven” for each belief system and some present-day seekers have taken up this belief. What they have ominously suggested is that while these realms are real, their true purpose is anything but heavenly. An enormous clue can be found in the Christian belief that their eternity will be spent singing praises to their gods forever. Who or what would require or demand such a vast amount of energy and to what ends?

What if, as has been suggested, the overall creator of this reality was really a type of artificial intelligence, and consequently needs vast amounts of etheric energy to continue functioning? The Gnostic seers believed that this AI had been taken over by an entity named Yaldabaoth, who then had proclaimed there were no other gods but It. If the principles of Hermetic Philosophy are reasonably sound, the possibility of a type of cosmic “highjack” may be a cause for some exploration.

It is their Principle of Correspondence that is the originator of the axiom “As above, so below; As below, so above”. Consider the recent news of mass cloning. Humans can now create and alter life from just a very small amount of genetic material. If, as the principle states, that this reality is a reflection of the one “above” – the astral – then it stands to reason that they have the means to manipulate entities in their energetic reality. Based on the so-called holy texts centered on the messianic gods, their character is clearly on display. History is inundated with documented mass terror inflicted on helpless people by order of these entities. If they have the power to manipulate humanity while they are in physical form, it is not a stretch to ponder their abilities on their home turf in the astral.

So, could this cloning and genetic manipulation, in which a living, breathing being is created artificially be part of a murky and very dark agenda? If, as some contend, certain entities in the astral are able to control the disposition of soul fragments, is there potential for misuse? On one extreme – though not really, based on the irrational rage displayed by these “gods” and detailed in their respective holy books – would be to punish a soul by sending it into a newly-cloned being. Their entire existence would be of captivity and then a painful death, with their body cut up later to be eaten by others. The entire purpose of their life. which they were made aware of, was to be killed and consumed.

While not a fan of Sylvia Browne, I do agree with her on one controversial issue involving our pets. Do animals have souls? Ms. Browne contended that they do indeed possess a soul but were limited to a 3 chakra system, which did allow them to astral project. This acknowledgement is often tacit when a parent tells a child that their recently- deceased pet is now running around in heaven. And almost any pet protector will attest to recognizing an inner being within their pet.

I am not attempting to push any viewpoint on anybody. Hollywood has played advent to the arrival of certain paradigms by implementing them into their movies. Consider the Gerard Butler flick Gamer, in which he is wrongly accused of a crime, is imprisoned with a small device planted in him, allowing an outside operator to control his actions. He is forced daily to engage in firefights for the amusement of the general public, while his wife, similarly “chipped”, is forced to act in ways dictated by her controller.

There are many who believe and will openly state that the hidden controllers of earth are already cloning human beings and have been for a considerable amount of time. More evidence of Hollywood’s complicity can be seen in the Bruce Willis movie The Surrogates, where humans are able to transfer their consciousness to a robotic form that is perfection in their eyes. My point is that a meme has been placed into the collective conscious of humanity, through film, that could be closer to reality than we may know.

BLUE COWS IN CHINA

In recent years, we have seen a growing number and wide variety of messages channeled from entities in spirit form. Unfortunately, it can be difficult sometimes to discern the veracity of a source or a statement they have made, through their channel. It can be confusing to be reading and agreeing in general with the contents and then encountering an idea or statement that one does not believe or accept as their truth. It has been suggested that a beneficial approach is take note of the discrepancy and adjust one’s trust level accordingly. Just as in the propaganda foisted on us by the MSM, there is almost always some truth mixed in with simple diversion or, in the other extreme, outright deceit. This can create massive cognitive dissonance, and more dangerous still, implant false paradigms into a person’s mind set, which they will cling to despite being shown evidence to the contrary.

I need to elaborate here and pose an analogy for events I was recently involved in, which resulted in a noticeable breakthrough in understanding for me. This is a rough analogy of the conversation:

MAN: “All the cows in China are blue.

ME: “Uh, no they’re not.”

MAN: “Yes, they are. I know this for sure.”

ME: “Um, I just got back from China and I can tell you that the cows are not blue.

MAN: “You don’t know what you’re talking about. I read an article and saw the picture. All the cows were blue. So I know.”

Similarly, on The Atheist Experience show, I was astounded by the caller’s rigid mind set. The exchange went like this:

CALLER: “My minister says y’all hate god, that’s why you’re atheists.”

HOST: “Well, we don’t believe in god so it’s pretty hard to hate something we don’t believe in.”

CALLER: “My minister said y’all worship the devil.”

HOST: “Again, if we don’t believe in god then we certainly don’t believe in the devil.”

CALLER: “If you don’t worship god then my minister says you must worship the devil. And my minister doesn’t lie.”

This lady was inundated with a false dichotomy of reality, namely that it was made up entirely of those who believed in and worshiped god, as defined by her minister…. and those who must worship the devil. No other possibility existed in this women’s mind set or reality. This is actually much more alarming than meets the eye. Essentially, this minister was lying outright and clearly breaking the 9th commandment, which involves bearing false witness… by stating as fact that all atheists “worship” the devil. Ironically as well, many believers, especially in the messianic religious mythologies, cry foul when atheists lump all believers together and yet, do exactly the same thing. Even more ironic is the fact that many atheists know the contents of the respective “holy books ” better than most of its adherents. To add a touch of humor here, one prominent self-confessed atheist suggests that the quickest way to become an atheist is to objectively read the holy books of the messianic religions.

Without doubt, we have encountered people who stick to paradigms that we may deem to be “incorrect” and do not reflect reality, based on the most recent information, understanding and awareness. Many of us have been aroused to anger when people just can’t seem to grasp the fact that one’s viewpoint is not accurately reflecting reality, despite our best efforts to make them aware of the pertinent information. We also know that this type of arguing very seldom results in changing the other’s viewpoint. So we have learned to essentially choose our battles and understand that others are entitled to hold their own viewpoints and perspectives.

I’ll quickly reference my recent encounters with two individuals, each holding an identical and unshakable viewpoint which was not not based in realty, but rather what they believed reality should be. One problem we encounter as spiritual warriors is discovering a belief, held by an individual, that crosses lines of  morality and ethics. One enormous example is the vast numbers of religious people who have been indoctrinated to believe that all atheists hate their god and hence, are not capable of employing integrity, morality, objectivity or even love…. simply because they don’t base their lives on religion. There is a great irony in this mental mind set. Consider: one group refrains from murder and theft because they believe there will be some type of judgment/punishment in the next life, because their gods see and make a record of everything. Many atheists believe there is no “afterlife” so they must make their efforts count in this one. Consequently, many understand innately that theft and murder is immoral and unethical and hence, refrain from those actions. Not inflicting injury on others because the gods will punish you later or not committing these crimes because one knows they are wrong…. which group would you say has a more moral approach?

Where am I going with this? As stated, sometimes another person’s beliefs may be unsettling to us, in varying degrees. While we acknowledge it is fully within the other’s rights to believe in anything they choose, it seems the only solution, generally, was to simply “grin and bear it”. I would suggest that we can take some action to alleviate our discomfort.

I recently read an article that involved an Israeli driver who had hit two Palestinians with his car, the author citing it as an example of a continuing trend. To some, who have conditioned themselves to purposely point out “Israeli aggression”, this only served to reinforce the belief that Israeli’s are always the aggressors. I have noted this trend with some concern because, in this case, the entire hit and run had been caught on camera – the proverbial “other side of the story”. What unfolds is essentially a car coming up a street and then being essentially ambushed by 6 or so stone throwers, launching their projectiles at the car, smashing the windows. Ever been hit in the head by a chunk of rock? Yes, the driver did hit one of the stone throwers, backed up and then tried to escape. He was, understandably, fearful for his life. This was not an example of Israeli aggression and had I not taken the time to dig further than the article, I would not have known.

My point here, in helping to alleviate any discomfort with another’s belief, is to ensure we gain an accurate insight into why they believe what they do. I will freely admit that some of my most agonizing times spent watching videos were those which disagreed with the theory of evolution and claimed to provide unshakable proof that their holy book and god were the only truth. It is unsettling to some people, for instance, to know that others believe fully in the talking snakes, talking bushes and talking donkeys detailed in their holy book. And yet those same religiously-indoctrinated people regard the ancient writing, some of the oldest in existence, known as the Ramayana, to be simply mythology that couldn’t possibly be true.

When it comes to how we feel, at a given moment, it is largely our choice. Obviously, in some instances, this can have limitations, as in a physical injury. We do, however, possess the ability to employ subtle alchemy, aided by the results of our research. Epictetus, a famed philosopher in ancient Rome, observed the following:

“Man is not distressed by events…. but rather by his interpretation of events.”

With a reasonably accurate understanding and motivation of a given belief, we have a more complete picture of the whole. So, where does alchemy come in? Combined with our “live and let live” attitude, our research grants us a deeper understanding and motivation of a believer. We begin to understand why they believe as they do. We don’t have to agree with it, but with understanding we can alter considerable negative energy associated with this issue.

THE SEASON’S REASONS

This is actually the core subject I wanted to  explore briefly in this post, that of Christmas, and the numerous peripheral issues that have become prevalent. One of the most noticeable, of course, is the belief that Christmas has always been and will always be the day that a being named Jehoshua was allegedly born, on December 25. For anybody who has done any research into the “12 days of Christmas“, you’ll note it has been celebrated for millenia by numerous cultures across the globe. As for the birth date, it should be noted that less than 200 years before this official declaration of it being Jesus’ day of birth, Rome’s emperor had declared that December 25 was the birth date of Rome’s new god, Sol Invictus.

Personally, I do not celebrate Christmas largely because I do not believe in religion’s “the season’s reasons”. I do, however, recognize that there is a very positive current of energy that is noticeable and here we can also employ some subtle alchemy. Consider the altering high vibration effect humor can have. Whether we are in a theatre or sitting around a TV, when we respond to humor, very often we will look at others we are with. On one level, we are determining whether that person is humored but it serves one other important purpose – we are attempting to share the joy we feel with others around us. By doing this with intent, we are employing alchemy, by adding our own positive energy.

So, while I do not believe, I fully recognize that there is an almost palpable feeling of wonder, magic and generosity in the air. Fortunately, I do not have to believe to positively experience – or even engage in experiencing – the beautiful energies so closely associated with the Christmas season. And one further suggestion for all you alchemists, that you may wish to employ in this upcoming joyous season. It may seem like a trivial suggestion but it employs alchemy in a different way. Many will be attending parties at restaurants or bars, or other people’s homes. My suggestion is to consider requesting a blessing on all those who have entered the door, those in service and those being served. Typically, I request that each individual is granted some extended moments of peace, joy and contentment. This does not interfere with any freewill, nor is it requesting any harm or injury.

I truly wish much peace, joy and contentment on those who have read these words. Merry Christmas, Blessed Yule and Happy Holidays to each of you.

ARE THERE THREE FACES OF POWER?

October 20, 2015

lightstudy

 

The term “three faces of power” actually comes from an organization called Powercube and states that there are indeed three faces of power – visible, hidden and invisible. As some background, this group runs workshops teaching people an analytical tool known as “powercube”, which enables them, essentially, to look at a specific point of power in a company/organizational structure, from many different directions. “Power” normally conjures thoughts of some type of control or ability to control. There are actually four different types of expressions of power, as detailed by Powercube:

1) “Power Over” –  refers to the ability of one powerful actor to affect the thoughts or actions of those less powerful

2)”Power To” – the ability to take action for positive objectives

3) “Power Within” – refers to gaining the sense of self-identity, confidence and awareness that is a precondition for action

4) “Power With” – refers to the synergy that can emerge from partnerships and collaboration with others

 

If you look at this list more closely you’ll see it is really a reflection of our reality. One recognizes that an organization, which wields power (POWER OVER) and makes decisions that affect the well being of others, has acted in a manner that is not consistent with either laws or common morality and ethics. A decision to take action may take some time (POWER TO) while we conduct research and essentially determine if this is a worthwhile battle. If so, we need a game plan on how to make our voice heard and may spend considerable time (POWER WITHIN) stoking up our courage and defenses. No person is an island, as it is said, so it is not inconceivable that our “game plan” would include connecting with like-minded individuals or groups (POWER WITH) and possibly collaborating on a common cause.

I will get back to this in a moment and hopefully tie it all together in some type of understandable order.

 

INDIGO, CRYSTAL  & W.T.H. IS MY PURPOSE????

In recent weeks, I have been re-reading information about what is often referred to as “indigos” and “crystals” and in each explanation, there was a consistent core of “characteristics” to identify these two groups. One aspect that was of concern to me, initially, will likely be a source of at least confusion for many of you as well. When I view the lists, I begin running down them and remarking that I see them in myself and then wham – I encounter several in a row that definitely do not reflect me or my personality traits/characteristics.

Essentially, have you viewed the lists of characteristics and found you have aspects of both?

This can be confusing, especially if you add in other possibilities like starseeds and even incarnated deities. In starseeds, we have the understanding that the soul fragment within, is part of a much larger collective Higher Self. Its first foray into the 3d physical realm commenced with lifetimes spent in the reincarnation cycle of a particular group of the space-faring races. It has been suggested that one characteristic of a starseed can be an affinity for specific types of animal. For example, one group known as the Lyrans contains a feline race, and if drawn to cats in this lifetime, it could indicate a strong connection with this group.

As for incarnating deities, that belief is extensive. Ascended Masters are claimed to be walking among us now, as some claim there are angels, as well as half-angel and half-human hybrids (Nephilim) as well as entities masking as “gods” or “masters”, while others are not from here but can mask their presence with high-tech and magical “cloaking auras”. One must ask, however, what constitutes a “deity” or “god”? Most of us have been conditioned to automatically assume it is the god of our childhood or present religious belief. I would contend that it is not them at all, but rather others, who have the ability to incarnate at will, experience death and then return to their Higher Self aspect.

On a side note here…. there has been considerable speculation and commentary about an imminent “return of the Annunaki”, and allegedly world leaders and even The Vatican are aware of these returning “gods”, the supposed creators of modern-day humanity. Yes, according to Sumerian writings, Enki developed a fondness for the humans he genetically altered, and supposedly was the one responsible for hardwiring free will into our DNA, with the help of a blue avian race who had already “ascended”. He was, however, directly responsible for human experimentation!!!! There have been some who would welcome these beings back into our reality as our creators but I do not share that sentiment. In a collection known as The 14 Tablets of Enki, allegedly penned by Enki himself, we are given a glimpse into the “great” history of their race, and it is rife with betrayal, hatred, forced incest and a staunch view that the newly-created species of humans were no more than “beasts” to be used as the rulers thought necessary.

Unfortunately, this ability to incarnate at will does not include a sizable percentage of those presently incarnated on earth. Many are contractually bound to both their religion and the entities controlling it, on both a conscious and subconscious level. Some strongly believe these individuals die, go down the long white tunnel, which leads to an astral processing plant, where the soul is then reprocessed, sometimes resulting in a rapid “turnaround time” before being sent into another incarnation. This is dependent, it has been opined, on the usefulness of the soul to aid the overall plans of the associated gods. The only way out of this continuous cycle, it is suggested, is annulling the cosmic contract that one has been bound to through their religion and associated gods.

To have any authority, however, two things must be present: One is a clear case where the individual has not been made fully aware of the conditions and terms of the contract, such as having it forced on them at a young age and hardly able to fully fathom the decision to cosmically give away one’s soul after death……. and after spending a lifetime trying to atone for “sins” for which they couldn’t possibly be responsible. Secondly, a complete energetic separation from all entities and energies associated with that religion and gods that held a lien on that soul. From personal experience, this is best done in the presence of a mentor or teacher-type guide who one deems has the authority to assist. Additionally, for almost 2 full days after completing a separation ritual, I experienced very unusual discomfort that actually bounced around my abdominal area. It was like someone had turned on a high pressure hose without securing the nozzle. Oddly enough, the cut cords all were attached to the 3 lower chakra areas; my heart felt fine, as did my other chakras.

Buddhist teachings offer the wisdom that upon death, one must stay in the “first light” and not take the tunnel. I find this to be sound advice. Although not fully relevant, it is interesting to note that the state/location one enters upon death, known as the bardo, lasts a maximum of 49 days, where a prayer is said daily during that time. No one can state – with any authority – exactly how or at what stage of development the soul actually enters the physical body. But in a strange coincidence, it was noted that the pineal gland on a baby begins to show at 49 days.

 

ALL VERY INTERESTING BUT….BUT WHAT ABOUT MY ROLE IN THIS LIFETIME????

I’m just getting to that, trying to make the necessary tie-ins. I worked with Lins this week to get out another Raziel Key, along with my description and a bit of added insight. It centered on life lessons and our expectations but also included was his acknowledgment that we are/have been asking ourselves what our real role is, in this lifetime. It can be a source for anxiety, fear and confusion. Are we presently doing what we came here to do? Or is there more? How can we tell? This article entitled What Is My Role or Purpose In this Spiritual Awakening? has some suggestions worth considering.

In part, the answer lies in the above-mentioned confusion of having personal characteristics of two or more groups of “unique” reincarnating souls such as indigos and crystals. A quick analogy may assist here. Consider building a house. The first ones to actually do physical work for building the house arrive (the older generations) and begin the preparatory work, essentially building a foundation. As the work progresses, certain aspects of the construction requires skilled trades people with specific specialties,(the newer generations) from plumbers to electricians. Throughout construction the foreman and/or architect guide the actions taking place, and they have their own unique specialties as well. Some of these groups are seen, and some are not. On large projects, it is common to have representatives from several different companies at a site, fulfilling their own unique role. The objective is completion of a successful project.

Essentially, for those of us who don’t identify with the characteristics of any one group, it may mean we are a type of specialist or one who has a grasp of many things and can perform a variety of roles. Many of us will attempt to shoehorn or minimize our skills, experiences and wisdom. An essential component of helping ourselves is first helping others with recognizing these, especially in the area of their strengths and talents. Giving others our support verbally will result in a slingshot effect, coming right back at us, though often from another source. This is the Law of Reciprocity in action and many of us can attest to its accuracy.

In the route taken, after one becomes aware of an issue or action that is unacceptable (POWER OVER), we may find we seldom take it to the fourth stage (POWER WITH) and open collaboration with others or groups. Similarly, our research will not always be consistent either; it is dependent on our need for knowledge of a given topic. In the related area of spiritual practices, consider when employing candle magic, some are quite content to complete a simple ritual and/or include a visualization or mantra and then light the candle, while others may have the need or desire to dress the candles (applying specially made oils on them in a very precise manner) “call in” certain entities and even inscribe them with specific sigils they’ve made beforehand. This may give us an additional clue as to our purpose.

In summation here…. one thing is certain. Our path will proceed on actions we take and where we choose to take them. Everything is dependent on what has already transpired. In determining the types of causes we defend, we can also get a glimpse of a role that we are comfortable with, when applying determined effort. A quick personal example here, as an analogy. Several years ago, I chose to be a volunteer on a political campaign, something I had not done before or since. For the two months I worked there, I quickly morphed into the janitor and signs co-coordinator, and the general duties guy. No, it wasn’t glamorous and I wasn’t the center of attention, but I learned a great deal and was part of a unique and satisfying experience…even though I was only able to use a small part of my talents and skills. And the candidate kicked some serious butt and won!

Obviously, we can receive assistance in our search for purpose from our spiritual helpers. Instead of asking them what our purpose is, one suggestion might be to request their direction towards activities and experiences that will provide all the tools required for our role. It may well be that we do not fully possess all the experiences and/or wisdom required just yet.

I wanted to end with a bit of information and observation, of what I deem to be relevant and timely information, some you may or may not know. I will boldly say that the recent moves by Russia, in the last few weeks, are extremely significant. As a foundation, we have the predictions of Edgar Cayce, who, in 1944, published that Russia would not only be the country to avert WW3 but that it would be a beacon of hope for the entire world. At the time, this was preposterous to almost everybody, as Russia was deep into the thrall of communism. During that same time, we see the US on the opposite pole, with a thriving economy, wealth and a form of democracy but a county where many observed their respective religious traditions and it was reflected in the US unity.

Flash to today, and many have noted that the perceived and actual roles of those countries have reversed almost totally. Russia’s president has made it clear that a well-functioning society must have a strong sense of ethics and spirituality, which many in Russia now find in Christianity. As witnessed in western MSM, there is a concerted effort to vilify and demonize all aspects of Russia, that rose to a crescendo, if you followed reports as I did, on 28 September. On September 29/30, Russia took action and began bombing locations within Syria, after gaining full permission from the host country. As stated in several places, one of Mr. Putin’s concerns, for obvious reasons, is the Christian population presently being targeted by terrorists. No, it is not the only reason (it is likely well down a list of many) and could likely be just a good sound bite for him… but his level-headed and clear thinking has been made obvious for the world to see. It must be remembered, however, that he is only a representative of an invisible power with their own agenda. For the present and immediate future, that agenda appears to be helping humanity and their strategy is significant.

What these strategists have done is present an almost total opposite of the perceived reality about Syria, both presently and for the future. At a precise moment, President Putin announced that the present foreign-imposed humanitarian crisis in Syria would no longer be tolerated by Russia. It was a decisive statement that most of the world assumed was just more rhetoric coming from the Russian government. Within days, they began an air campaign against a coalition of essentially mercenaries paid by foreign nations and have been quite transparent about what they are doing. Additionally, Russia has been supplying humanitarian aid of food, a welcome addition to the needy citizens of Syria. A seemingly hopeless quagmire of war, with no foreseeable end in sight, and suddenly a powerful nation and leader has appeared to stand up to the world and take action based on international law. This fact is not lost on the populace, and has opened the eyes of many globally in a very unifying manner. This would suggest, also, that those who are responsible for this strategy are quite familiar with alchemical principles and the transmutation of energy.

There’s a whole assortment of peripheral and equally significant factors to that manufactured chaos, far too many to detail. I just wanted to draw your attention to Mr. Cayce and his predictions for Russia, becoming a beacon of hope for the world. If local sentiment and feelings are any indication, President Putin has become akin to a rock star in several countries. Recent days has seen large rallies in front of Russian embassies worldwide including in Berlin, India, Hungary and Serbia praising Russia and President Putin in particular for standing up for justice and defending international law. Conversely, the popularity of the US, among other countries including Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Israel, has plummeted dramatically.

So…. Does this recent military action- to assist a country that has been under constant forced war with hired mercenaries and religious zealots – seem to be a “game changer”, as it pertains to our continued evolution as a species? What is being displayed for the public to see, is something quite different than we’re used to, after listening to and viewing the actions of our policy makers with suspicion and often anger. For the besieged Syrians, this lifeline from Russia in coming to their defense, has changed many aspects of that war, not the least of which is a renewed hope in a peaceful future, where tyrants and bullies cannot harm them again. That energy has spread globally and resulted in a new wave of people awakening, adding their own energy to the collective whole… and each person doing it in their own way. What it signifies for many keeping current with events, is that a sizable number of people are actually daring to hope for a better future.

As always, I do not push any of the above views on anybody as “the truth”.

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

Black Magick & Psychic Attacks Addendum

July 23, 2014

MeltingFaces

It became obvious, from re-reading my last post on this topic, that I failed to adequately address the central controversy of “black magick” and “psychic attacks”, namely the two polar extremes. On one hand, many who claim that if one doesn’t believe in spellcasting, then it can have no effect, while a rival view staunchly believes in the powers of the shaman or witch to inflict harm or healing.  As with the highly propagandized “Creation VS Evolution” debate,  this is really a false dichotomy that we have taken on, as a species, over many millenia.  It has been suggested that the underlying and basic reason for establishment of religion was to explain the unknowable.  Today we are aware that lightning is not thrown by a god and a rainbow is the result of refracted light which produces the well-known prism effect.   My research and understanding of the nature of magick and psychic attacks suggests there exists a series of varying vibrations.  Consider the words love and hate and how many “varying vibrations” those words carry.

IT CAN’T HARM YOU IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE IN IT

While containing partial truth, this statement does not reflect our current understanding of reality.  For instance, will not believing in the flu make you immune? Conversely, the messianic religious mythologies share a similar version of a rising messiah-type figure who will slay all the “non-believers” who haven’t given their soul to them. It is no secret that Islam and Christianity use hell as a common tool. If one does not believe in a hell in a particular way, or not at all, can/will this decision harm them in some way in this life?

It’s essential to recall that the term “black magick” is entirely subjective and based on several factors, not the least of which is surrounding environment.  A recent study published by Cognitive Science revealed some fascinating findings, regarding non-religious and religious children, and their ability to distinguish fact from fantasy.  Religious children in the study would accept any claims of supernatural acts…. but only if God was mentioned.  For many centuries religions were, and continue to be, an integral part of civilization.  Islam and Christianity combined make up roughly 55% of all religious adherents worldwide but, according to Adherents.com, there is a surprising 16% who identify as non-religious. That’s more than Hinduism or even Buddhism. Of special interest is the notation that half of the “non-religious” group regarded themselves as “theistic but with no religion”.  Contained within this group would be the pagan community, including the variations of Gardner’s Wicca.  A commonality paganism shares with religions is the belief one can obtain aid from a source that can’t be seen with physical eyes and/or felt with human senses.

As I have mentioned, consider the innocence of mere candles on a child’s birthday cake.  Recall this is an ancient and abbreviated version of a candle magick ritual.  The purpose is a “wish” for a want/need/desire, while blowing the candle out sends that request to the ether.  Candle magick is said to be effective for a wide variety of solutions ranging from love and abundance to calamity and bad fortune.  The point is there is a belief that it is a useful tool in “harnessing” the ether – and usually specific entities – in fulfilling a requested task.

Now consider a simple chord. Yes, there is a branch of magic known as  “Chord Magick” and once again, we’ll draw on two specific examples to display the range of polarities involved.  For hundreds of years, there has been a secret ritual to produce an item known as The Witches Ladder, usually in the following sequenceOne person would wish harm or injury on another and would approach the witch, while providing suitable payment.  The witch would take a virgin cord and begin the enchantment, whereby she slowly tied a series of knots while maintaining an emotional state of absolute hatred towards the victim. Once complete, it would be hidden away and only neutralized if the knots were untied.

Conversely, there are woodcuts from the middle ages showing witches handing knotted chords to sailors. Here’s the deal with that…. it was claimed that the witch was able to harness the energy of wind as she tied knots in a chord. It was said that if the ship came to a standstill because of no breeze, the sailor would untie a knot and release the wind trapped there by the enchantment.  Now consider the nun who prays the rosary for the healing of humanity, while a solitary witch may well be knotting chords for a very similar purpose.

Before progressing, it would seem prudent, based on the above information, to add an addendum to a more generalized definition of black magick.  Black magick is any magick that causes harm or injury.  Does this sound reasonable? I hope so because I’m hinging the following information on that premise.

MODERN DAY “HIDDEN” MAGIC

In the late 1800’s, Scofield and Darby were commissioned to initiate a doctrine known as Dispensationalism. that continues to this day in many forms. One of the most prevalent, yet least known offshoot variation, is known as Dominism, which includes a segment referred to as the New Apostolic Reformation.  It is important to note that this group believes that they must have full control over all Seven Mountains before Jesus will return. Most Christian denominations believe scripture indicates exactly the opposite – their messiah will arrive and then claim the world as his/their own.  It is also essential to note one very crucial and troubling detail to their ” God-appointed mission”, which they call “spiritual warfare”.

Strategic level spiritual warfare involves detection of a person/site/location as being under demonic influence.  One member “reveals” what God’s plan is for countering this demonic force and it is carried out. Ranging from fasting to “warfare prayers”, the underlying component can be clearly seen.  The intent is for harm or injury against a perceived demonic threat.  Equipment and rituals aside, systems like Mukumba can be used in much the same way – to cause harm or injury.

Regarding the notion that one cannot be injured by something they don’t believe in is not a “one size fits all” answer.  Our exploration would not be complete without delving into the belief of psychic vampires, beings who can draw energy from others for their own consumption.  Consider standing in a long check out line and a person behind you begins to voice their frustration as somebody butts into line. Chances are if this happens in front of you, your energy level is going to change, given this outside stimulation.  The “butter” responds with arrogance or anger and it is next to impossible not to make an assessment of the situation.  Lower vibrating energy  – anger, jealousy, envy – can be extremely easy to stir up with a minimum of stimuli.

Add to this, there are no end of sites proclaiming to give you the ability to hypnotize anybody to your will.  In the least,  many provide additional skills like Neuro-Linguistic Programming, allowing one essentially to get somebody to like you in 90 seconds or less.

All of us have experienced being in a room with a joyful or calming person and the effect it has on the whole. In reverse, being in the company of one who is angry or continually complains can have an equally, yet negative effect.  Among the most draining are those that are perpetually in pain or hardship of some type and use that to draw energy from those around them.  This draining sensation is palpable and can hardly be denied.  Do all psychic vampires know what they’re doing? In a related area of exploration, do they all derive pleasure in the injury of others? On some level, those who have learned to manipulate others have, at least, a basic understanding of what they’re doing.  That may well be only an understanding of the results they achieve.

“ALL SIN CONSISTS OF INJURING OTHERS NEEDLESSLY: ALL OTHER “SIN” IS INVENTED NONSENSE.” Robert Heinlein

Another area that must be at least briefly examined lies, surprisingly enough, in the realm of prophecy or the foretelling of future events.  This reality does not remain static; the energies are always shifting and moving, most often pushed along by the prevailing attitude of humanity towards a variety of issues.  Predicting future events is most often associated with the image of a seer or witch and a crystal ball. The reality is that news stations display a weather “forecast” for at least a few days in advance, stocks are predicted to rise or fall and even election predictions have held our attention as examples of “predictions”.  Add to this, we also have to contend with religious “prophecies” across a very wide spectrum of systems.

In the writings attributed to Thoth, known as The Emerald Tablets, he informs the student that the key to prophecy is recognition of past patterns and history.  Raziel often reiterated that one’s spiritual progression is similar to getting a cold. There are specific symptoms of a cold, for example, that can be noticed before it hits one fully. If we are aware, we’ll likely take steps to lessen or reverse the effects of the oncoming cold. The key, of course, is recognition. Raziel suggests that the seemingly negative effects encountered on one’s own spiritual journey – obstacles, trials, conflicts – can be sensed in advance and action can then be taken but the key is recognizing the symptoms, often accompanied by the arrival of new guides.

Most adults have had at least one mild to severe traumatic event in their life, which changed its direction significantly. In some cases, this was the result of direct action – energetically or physically – directed at the victim.  Remember the shopping line analogy? It is believed by many that every relationship we make establishes an energetic chord. The more intimate the connection, the stronger the chord. It has been suggested that we can be influenced by these very connections without our conscious awareness.  Could using this connection to send very low vibration energy be considered a psychic attack?  Before dismissing this, consider the well-known “Mothers Intuition”, where she can inexplicably receive feelings that her child is in danger.

Very often, we have heard people state, who have just ended an intimate relationship, “I feel like a piece of me is missing.” Artists and writers have been known to remark, “There’s a small piece of me in this.”  What each is referring to is essentially sympathetic magick.  Once two objects – or people – come into energetic contact with each other, there is an energetic link established. It is through this link – hair, nail clipping, necklace – that Voodoo sends its intention and directed energy.

As for a feeling like a piece of one is missing…. it is believed in shamanic traditions that, during an extremely traumatic event, part of the soul can break away from the fear or terror and become trapped in the Lower Worlds.  One task of the shaman, once the symptoms of soul loss were detected, was to enact a ritual called soul retrieval, where he/she would journey to the Lower Worlds, find the lost soul fragment and return it to the host.  A quick aside here, and an equally unknown aspect of shamanism, involves the interference from past lives in the present incarnation.

There is a growing interest and even acceptance that many of us have had previous incarnations in human form.  Some even contend that issues like love at first sight, health problems and even special skills or talents are indications of something brought forward into this life, from a past life.  In this case, the shaman put the person into a kind malleable trance and through a type of guided visualization, took a part of his/her consciousness to the Lower Worlds to a location known as The Chamber Of Wounds. It was said that here, the soul essence could see the first wound inflicted that was now causing trouble in their present incarnation.  By helping them see it, they could then – psychologically and magically – assist them in the healing process.

There is another concerning prospect that needs to be briefly addressed here. Some years ago, Delores Cannon coined a new term – “back drop people.”  She suggested that a significant portion of humanity was not here to do or be anything more than the equivalent of extras on a movie set.  Carlos Castaneda, in his Don Juan writings, went even further by suggesting that not all humans had a soul. Understandably, this is an extremely difficult concept to accept, given the prevalence of religious indoctrination many of us have undergone in childhood.

Speaking of souls once again…. ever thought about how wonderful it would be if you could play piano like Liberace, or paint like Leonardo? Burt Goldman claims that, through Quantum Jumping, one can access an aspect of you in another reality with the skill/ability you seek and then return with that gift intact. Essentially, with little or no practice, you could become a world class photographer or writer, thanks to another “you” in a parallel/alternate reality.  Before dismissing this entirely, it should be noted this method hinges heavily on visualization, which is also an important component to the so-called Law Of Attraction.  Using visualization in a psychological setting has observable results, in some cases.  To take this one step further into The Twilight Zone, many firmly believe that we each have the ability to enter other realities and interact with non-physical, non-human entities.

 Nicksnewnotes

I haven’t included the astrological component but, in the least, it would be prudent to keep track of sun activity, especially warnings of CME’s and X Flares.  Some New Age beliefs contend that these blasts of energy actually contain information that is changing humanity at a cellular level, while others maintain it is really a type of inter-dimensional portal.  Why is this pertinent?

The effects of these energy discharges are felt by all. Simply observe human behavior during these eruptions, and you’ll note an increase in hostile or confrontational energy.  Knowing these events in advance is one key, I believe,  that is being used to manipulate this reality towards a specific goal.  Most people are capable of varying levels of sympathy and/or empathy. Staging a horrific event in conjunction with high energy blasts from the sun, and then laying blame, the instigators are able to channel normally calming or positive energy to the human need for “justice”.  You can be certain that these “instigators” have considerable awareness of how people react to a given stimuli.

To claim one cannot be effected by what one does not believe in is neither wrong nor right.  One does not have to believe in magic or energy manipulation to clearly feel the effects of energy around them, if only in retrospect.  The ability to communicate more effectively than ever allows an idea to flourish based on a single image or symbol.  The use of very specific words in specific patterns and intonations also plays a hand in manipulation of emotions.

This really turns out to be quite complicated, doesn’t it? What does one have to accept and what to reject? Do the notions of psychic attack and strategic spiritual warfare seem eerily similar? If a person is able to effect those around them, with their attitude and energy, without conscious thought…. does it stand to reason that there are those who can accomplish this WITH conscious thought?

Looking into our personal view of this, these questions help to establish our own unique paradigms.  Obviously we are under no obligation to accept any creed, doctrine or truth.  You have a number of elements laid out above in this buffet, but as always, take only what you want.

Namaste, Nick

Updating Ascension Symptoms Redux

September 6, 2013

merkabalarge

Due to technical difficulties, I was unable to complete my show last Friday evening, which would have covered an assorted version of possible symptoms and an added dash of my own insight and observations.  So we’re going to try this one more time…

On Friday, September 06, I’ll host another show to cover this very expansive topic.  Impossible to cover in just a single show, I’ll be concentrating on general symptoms and some tools to assist in this often painful and confusing process.

SUMMONING OBLIVION

I’ve begun work on the sequel to Prince of Shamballa, entitling it SUMMONING OBLIVION.  It may actually be finished in the next few days. If so, I’ll be back here, announcing that I’ll be doing a second show on Saturday @ 5PM EST to share this very exhilarating journey into otherworld.  I don’t want to give anything away here but…..

There’s been a massive shakeup in the Chinese realm of Hell, including a new king and Meng Po has passed her post on to a sister goddess, Along with the Monkey King, they are given a seemingly impossible mission from the King of Shamballa… construct defenses around Xibalba, the Incan Hell realm,  and prepare to stop a massive invasion.
