The Course in Gaian Alchemy, was originally presented by John Lash as a 40 week course in 1982-83. It was the result of his investigations begun at the age of nine and more than 20 years of research and experimentation up until that time. After a 36 year hiatus, the time is now ripe for completing The Great Work. Here is a how he describes The Great Work:
“The Great Work is the task of CO-CREATION: service rendered to Nature by humanity, as a way of completing the very process of creation.
Obviously, it wil be impossible to pursue the task of assisting Nature, if we do not encounter Nature, the created world, in a profound way. To revise Alchemy in modern terms, we must contact Nature as an awesome power. The Great Work is a program and guide to such an encounter……..
The author shares his discovery that the alchemists were “atmospheric mystics” who experienced in a direct way how our mental and physical life is interfused with the processes of the terrestrial atmosphere. For example, they recognized the cycle of photosynthesis before it was technically identified. They knew as sensory fact the exchange of carbon dioxide bet- ween humans and plants. They considered the entire atmosphere as a vas hermeticum, a vessel where transmutations occur all the time. They sought to understand the role of the human form as a living “spore” embedded within the atmospheric medium.
This revision of alchemy does not require a forge and apparati, the cooking of chemicals, or working in a laboratory, but it does require the capacity to experience the entire atmosphere around us as a laboratory.
It also requires the training of imagination to see how we are involved in the dynamics of the atmosphere. Among the alchemists the power of imagination was called the artifex, the tool for achieving the Work.”
Excerpt from the prospectus to The Great Work, John Lash
Fast-forward to 2018 and, in addition to The Alchemy Course, we have the Sophianic Narrative, the Terma of Gaia Awakening and Planetary Tantra; not only do we know the identity of the ‘awesome power’, but we also have the methodology for interaction with Her. However, what really makes co-creation possible is the fact that we are now in Correction and is is becoming ever more clear that our Divine Mother wants to interact with us, Her magical children.
So who would be so bold as to desire to participate in co-creation with the Wisdom Goddess? What does that entail? Can your imagination conceive of what it would be like to attain the status of a god or goddess? Knowing, of course, that this is not the same as becoming a god; it does not involve an ascension process or even immortality. You can only ever be human, but what is the fullest expression of the Anthropos imaginable in a single human creature? And how do you get from where you are now to god-like? Having read The Alchemy Course three times, I can say with absolute confidence that this isn’t a mere possibility, it is inevitable that some one, who holds co-creation as their highest desire and does the necessary work, will achieve that goal. It could be you. Do you want to join me on this adventure?
“Hold to your highest desire and surrender its attainment, not precluding that the attainment will be rendered to you by the power of the Wisdom Goddess.” JLL
The Course in Gaian Alchemy will be available on Nemeta, the School of Sophianic Arts and Sciences. within the next few months. (You can sign up for updates on the Nemeta launch here.) For anyone wanting to initiate themselves in guided experimentation in a small group here in Gaia’s laboratory, I’m offering two retreats this summer.
The focus will be on the essential preliminaries and then to dive into the areas that are of greatest interest to participants. The full Gaian Alchemy syllabus cannot be covered in a week! Over the past few months I’ve focused on regeneration and releasing my senses from what is described in Gaian Alchemy as the ‘numbing effect of kundalini’. This is a radically different approach to kundalini than is to be found in new age perspectives on the subject. However, it’s worth noting that its correspondence to the Electric Universe Theory, which it predates by several decades, is remarkable. The aim of ‘Adventures in Gaian Alchemy’ is to introduce participants to the artifex and the proper use of the senses, so that they can continue with their own investigations effectively.
“For the olden alchemists, the process of grounding essense via kundalini was accomplished in the Fixation Stage of the Work. This was done through stilling images in the plasmatic Light. This is the initial training of the creative imagination to see into the planetary life-web. Fixation is the training of the attention to guide the imagination so that it serves the increasing of essense rather than its dissipation. Normally, the hypnotic power of Kundalini is evident in human tendencies to fantasy, daydreaming, groundless idealizations, sexpairing and emotional bonding based on transient attractions.
The alchemists called creative imagination by its Latin tag, imaginatio, and revered it as the artifex, the tool for actually performing the work.”
From Lesson 7: The Human Essense, John Lash
Additionally, the location is as important as the timing – Her Dreaming comes through the land. The Great Work must be initiated away from what passes for civilisation, in a place drenched in Her savage beauty, where our vestigial senses can still respond to Her signals. Galicia is such a place, a little corner of forgotten paradise, waiting to offer its treasures to all who seek Wisdom here. I mentioned in an earlier post how Galicia was known to the ancient Greeks as Ophiussa, the Land of Serpents and how I discovered this because we are located on the Eastern Galicia Magnetic Anomaly. The telluric currents of the earth are strong here. We are also directly under the flight path of the White Stork – these enormous and graceful birds fly over several times a day and nest in a great cedar tree we can see from our terrace. The stork is in the Pelicaniformes order of birds and related to the pelican; both serpent and pelican have a special significance in the ancient alchemical texts.
“‘Pneumatic’ comes from the Greek pneuma, spiritual or celestial breath. ‘Chthonic’ comes from the Greek chton, earth; thus it means earthly, earthbound, terrestrial. The creature of pneuma is primarily the PELICAN, while that of chton is the dragon or SERPENT, naturally. These appear in manifold variations, bearing witness to delicate nuances of transmutation in the course of the Work.
Alchemical lore contains a vast picture-book of bizarre and wonderful images, most of which prove to have clear and accurate meanings when the experience and processes they describe can be recaptured. The Bird and Serpent motifs appear in countless variations in the old manuscripts. The UROBOROS, the serpent eating its own tail, is a widely known ‘symbol’ whose precise meaning in human physics has been lost in a welter of abstract and fantastic interpretations. It is the prototype of all Serpent motifs.
Its counterpart, the central figure of all Bird motifs is found in the precious and singular image of the PELICAN. This bird when feeding its young crooks its neck down and around and performs an odd, striking act: it regurgitates already digested food into the ravening mouths of its brood. In doing so, it appears to be feeding them from nourishment torn out of its own breast. The alchemists, being keen observers of nature, caught this action and immediately saw it as the image of certain processes which occur in ‘mystical physiology’.”
From The Course in Alchemy, Lesson 13, John Lash.
Now, I admit to being biased here (I’m in love with this land) but given the physical presence of both these potent symbols right here, there can be no better place on the planet to to discover how to complete the Work at this time.

We are not on municipal water here and we don’t have a septic tank. All our grey water goes into a reed bed, so we are careful to minimise our use of chemicals so that we don’t kill the reeds and create a stink! In most cases the natural option is cheaper, healthier and more effective – although you might have to experiment a bit to find out what suits you.
Shampoo is an issue if you’ve been used to the sleek, glossy, full-volume, untangled hype of the chemical stuff, especially if you have long hair. But it’s not worth dying for! Most commercial, non-organic shampoos contain SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE (SLS) & SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE (SLES) and they are probably the most dangerous of all personal care products. Just because there is no immediate noticeable effect doesn’t mean that it isn’t harmful in the long-term. Why take the risk? In animal tests ( and why have that on your conscience for a shampoo?) they have been found to cause eye damage, depression, breathing difficulties, diarrhoea, severe skin irritation, immune system damage, corrosion and death. According to the American College of Toxicology states both SLS and SLES can cause malformation in children’s eyes.
DEA (diethanolamine) MEA (momoethanolamine) TEA (triethanolamine) are also in most main brand shampoos, often appearing as Cocamide DEA or MEA, Lauramide DEA, etc. These are hormone disrupting chemicals and research has shown that they are implicated in the increase in liver and kidney cancers.
I want to make life easy for my immune system, not more challenging!
I’ve been mostly underwhelmed with the organic shampoo options. They are expensive, hard to find here and tend to leave my hair feeling life-less and just not that clean. I prefer my home-made option, which we also use as a body wash and hand wash.
I have long hair and I don’t take care of it – it gets sun-damage over the summer and windblown in the winter. I don’t condition or colour it and can barely be bothered to get it cut once a year. But it’s healthy and shiny and virtually without grey.
coconut milk shampoo recipe
Here’s the recipe:
one can of organic coconut milk (400ml)
400ml liquid castille soap
200ml vegetable glycerin
a few drops of essential oils of your choice ( I use rosemary mostly)
Mix the ingredients and pour into a used shampoo bottle. This makes quite a bit, so I put the rest in the freezer and defrost when I need a refill. You only need to use a small amount and don’t be put off by the fact that it’s quite runny. It lathers really well and smells gorgeous. Initially I used aloe vera to improve the texture of the shampoo and neutralise the pH, but the end result was still a bit ‘claggy’ which built up over a few weeks. The vegetable glycerin gives a squeaky clean feel and adds to the shine, with no build up. I wouldn’t go back to store bought stuff even if it was available and I had cash to throw at it.
Castille soap is made from olive oil and caustic soda. Dr Bronner’s is the most well-known brand, but there are others – I usually use the hemp and almond version. You can make your own, and I’ve tried this, but it makes it a lot more work and the result tends to be inconsistent as it’s temperature and humidity dependent – sometimes it’s too thick and other times too runny.
I’ve been prompted on “recognition” several times over the past few months; I had it on the back burner, as one of those things to look into when the time is right. Well, it’s that time right now. A sudden confluence of prompts, signals and synchronicities has led me to conclude that for the Rhomay to defeat the xenosh – you need to recognize recognition! The timing on this is critical, so I’m putting this out, knowing that I don’t have the full story yet. That will materialize, in due course, necessarily through your participation.
So, what is recognition and why is it so important?
This is my working definition: recognition is an aspect or infrasensory perception caused by the simultaneous occurrence of visual and magnetic stimuli that effects experience, gene expression and reality.
These are the phases of recognition I’ve defined so far:
Electromagnetic pulse from the earth, simultaneously detected by the eyes and sphenoid bone (the sphenoid and connected ethmoid bones are the only bones in the human body to contain ferric iron or magnetite and the eyes and optic nerves rest on them);
The pulse is amplified by the sphenoid sinuses and picked up by the pituitary gland (they sit next to each other in a special cavity in the sphenoid bone called the sella turcica);
The pituitary gland responds to the pulse by instructing the other glands to release hormonal compounds specific to the pulse;
The hormones generate emotional and other responses that create different electrical charges in various parts of the body;
The electrical charges interact with histone and non-histone proteins, causing different genes to express;
The change in gene expression causes you to experience a difference in the world around you;
You recognize the change;
When you speak of what you recognize in that moment the sphenoid sinuses (anaerobic repiration in another aspect here) give a particular resonance to the voice, which has a special power when the electromagnetic pulse is expressed through song or words. (Additional info on this here: The Head Sinuses.)
The fractal antenna of your DNA broadcasts a new message to the fractal antennas of the DNA of every other living thing, and so reality changes.
Other, deeper and even more significant aspects to consider involve how recognition and gene expression affect the Planetary Animal Mother as She clears Her mind at the end of Her Aeonic day and activates Her transpeciation protocols. Another is how existence, or reality for want of a better word, corresponds to the perceptive abilities of the Anthropos. Recognition is an active jolt out of the everyday trance, that shifts the gears on what you experience AND how life expresses itself.
mid-15c., “knowledge of an event or incident; understanding,” from Middle French recognition (15c.) and directly from Latin recognitionem (nominative recognitio) “a reviewing, investigation, examination,” noun of action from past participle stem of recognoscere “to acknowledge, know again; examine” (see recognize).
Sense of “formal avowal of knowledge and approval” is from 1590s; especially acknowledgement of the independence of a country by a state formerly exercising sovereignty (1824). Meaning “a knowing again” is from 1798.
early 15c., “resume possession of land,” back-formation from recognizance, or else from Old French reconoiss-, stem of reconoistre “to know again, identify, recognize,” from Latin recognoscere”acknowledge, recall to mind, know again; examine; certify,” from re- “again” (see re-) + cognoscere”to get to know, recognize” (see cognizance). Meaning “know again, recall or recover the knowledge of, perceive an identity with something formerly known or felt” first recorded 1530s. Related: Recognized; recognizing.”
When you consider the homonyms and phonemes in the words ‘recognition’ and ‘recognize’ your attention is drawn to the ‘cog’ as in ‘a cog in the wheel’, a small part or function in a larger organization. Then ‘gnition’ brings to mind ‘ignition’, as in firing up and ‘nize’, is in the eyes. In other words, the power of recognition is in igniting small changes in reality through the eyes – the spark of recognition.
Recognition occurs whether or not the object of recognition is true. The act of recognition makes a pre-existing story, memory or belief real. It may take some time to show up, some acts of recognition are more subtle than others, but it is a physical process that occurs as naturally as your heartbeat. It is also a fact that the enemies of life are aware of this and use it to their advantage, whereas the Rhomay, for the most part, does not.
What is infrasensory perception?
In The Gaia-Sapiens Exchange, John Lash defines infrasensory perception [ISP] as part of the 6th level of exchange, in which human perceptual experience (the physics of beauty) feeds into the rapture circuits of Gaia-Sophia.
“The 6th exchange involves a rapturous meltdown and conversion of normal perceptual modalities. Access to Gaia’s rapture-circuits occurs when the normal powers of perception mutate in an illuminated moment. This is infrasensory perception in the full range of psychedelic vision, represented in the Great Work by the cauda pavonis, the Peacock’s Tail. In infrasensory perception we see what happens within the senses, rather than passively receiving the impressions they mediate.
Here, as in the case of the reproductive-cognitive exchange, 5, the arrow flows from Sapiens to Gaia. Why? Because the recognition of her rapture-circuits depends on human interest and actually charges the Gaian circuits with new content. In indigenous traditions of native America, any practice that accomplishes this enrapturing of nature is called Beautyway. When these circuits are accessed for healing, the practice is called Blessingway. The most intimate act of knowing Gaia is to encode a set of designated genes in her rapture-circuits.”
The Gaia-Sapiens Exchange was written in 2000, well before the start of Correction and it is only as Correction proceeds that you can begin to see the shape of it. One thing that is becoming rapidly clear is that human senses are being sharpened and extended, so that what was only accessible pre-Correction in non-ordinary consciousness, through the proper use of psychoactive plants, can now be perceived in ordinary consciousness through intent and concentration. That includes insight into the working of the senses, as well as the content delivered by them.
The Sphenoid Bone
The sphenoid bone is an intricate, butterfly shaped arrangement of seven bones in the middle of your skull, towards the front. It is one of the bones supporting the eyeball and the optic nerve. It also houses the two sphenoid sinuses and the pituitary gland in a unique depression named the sella turcica, meaning ‘Turkish saddle’. The sphenoid bone connects to the ethmoid bone, which separates the nasal cavity from the brain and has the largest concentration of magnetite in the human body.
Medical science does not offer a great deal on why the sphenoid contains ferric iron, or why the ethmoid contains magnetite. There is some speculation that it might include orientation to the earth’s magnetic field lines for finding directions. That might be true to some extent, but as medical science does not for the most part recognize the electrical properties of the body, it’s always going to be lacking. Do you think the Aeonic Mother designed you this way by accident?
There are many references to the so-called mystical properties of the sphenoid and there might be some truth to be found there, but there is also a lot of deception and often repeated garbage. I haven’t got the time to wade through it, but there are three aspects that jump out at me:
1. There are many references to amrita, ambrosia, soma, the nectar of divine bliss and immortality, that originates from the sphenoid complex and drips into the mouth. There are conflicting stories on whether this elixir is sweet tasting or slightly salty, whether it comes from the pituitary gland or the sphenoid sinuses. (NB: the sphenoid sinuses are air bags, the seat of anaerobic respiration.)
Consider these illusory references in the light of more recent accounts:
“In close proximity, the Organic Light will taste you. Why? She wants to know if you are delicious enough to eat. When PAM licks you, you realize that are entering the luminosity you behold: you feel a slight pressure on your skin, the texture of something delicious. A most exquisite, delightful sensation, to say the least. Up close the Organic Light looks and feels like melon. This sensation is so magnificent that you tend to swoon into it and may lose awareness of exactly what is happening to you, as may occur at the height of sexual orgasm. Although you remain sober and alert, you overlook something that you are undergoing in the most intimate manner imaginable.
To switch metaphors, consider how you can get a razor cut without catching the precise moment it happens. Then, a second or two later, you see the result: the hairline slit and the exuding blood. Likewise, you get the lick from PAM at a moment when you cannot hold attention totally on the sensation, unless you are in advanced practice. You only know that Gaia has licked you and likes your taste by the sign she gives you: a single drop of perfectly clear mucus leaks from the left nostril. Just one drop, no more. Usually on the left, although it can also happen on the right. This drop of clear mucus is your body’s way of telling you that PAM likes the way you taste.
This nasal drop is a precious elixir prized above all mundane jewels by Gaian ecosorcerers. It is indeed the sign of attainment, of vocation, of selection, of election, of delectation, of sublime complicity. It is the assurance of freedom to depart from the limits of the human condition. One drop comes each time she tastes you and likes it. I have had this single nasal drop many times. In the Christmas session with Jonas on the Ridge, I saw him get the drop. Then he did something that any normal person might do: raised his hand automatically to brush it away. I jumped at him and told him to stop. Then I explained to him what it means to be a snot-nosed kid in the Sophianic Mysteries.
I impart this information, previously reserved for oral transmission among trusted friends in the sanctity of the Mystery cells, to honor the courage and intelligence of those who would now seek to know the Divine Feminine in telluric form, and to foster their sacred intention to engage the mystic-erotic splendor of the planetary body. The taste test is one of the sublime secrets known to those who have fallen into milk. I wish with all the infernal pride of my heart that you who read these words may come to this experience.
I can attest to the ‘left nostril elixir’ in non-ordinary consciousness and also a ‘right nostril elixir, which often appears in ordinary consciousness when I make a connection or discovery, such as with the serpentinite rocks that I mention below.
2. Compare the ancient image of the Caduceus to the image of the sphenoid bone above and the chakra system with the ida and pingala below. In these images I am equating the shushumna to the cavity between the surface of the earth and the upper atmosphere, within which we live (not a channel in the human body) and which comes into us in the electromagnetic pulses I’ve described as initiating recognition.
3. Now, consider this animation of the movement of the sphenoid bone. You can feel the points where the greater wings connect with the mastoid tendons on the side of your head, just in front and slightly above the slight indentation in front of your ears. If you hold your fingers there gently, you can feel a slight pulse – also you might often experience a tension, or slight inflammation there if something has caused the sphenoid to jam. gentle massage and alternate nostril breathing will alleviate this tension in most cases.
Real Life Recognition
Recognition is not an esoteric concept, you do it every day. One of the prompts for this post came from a friend who described a recognition experience to me. She and her husband had bought a derelict property with some land, on a love-at-first sight basis, but hadn’t found the motivation or energy to sell the house they were living in and move to the new property. There was always something in the way, things that needed to be done first and their appetites for the move were zapped.
One day, they were camping out at the property and laying in the garden, enjoying the sun and the birds singing, insects buzzing and something happened. They didn’t know what happened, but they both recognized it and she said to her husband; why don’t we just sell the house as it is and move here and start work on the house? And he agreed. What had previously seemed complicated and a long way off, was suddenly clear and simple. The earth, in a place that they loved, resonated with them and they picked up the signal, recognized it and she said the words that spoke of it and in doing so, co-created that reality.
Another interesting fact about the sphenoid bones and sinuses, is that they are as unique as our fingerprints. There is a unique place on the earth (may be even more than one) of special resonance to each one of us.
As I pondered the subject of recognition, I found myself looking at a pile of rocks that were left over from building our house. Some of them had unusual striations. Heed the obvious, is Tezca’s instruction and there’s not much more obvious than a big pile of rocks crying out for landscaping! I looked up magnetic rocks of Galicia and it turns out that some of the rocks in the pile are serpentinite rocks.
“Serpentinite is a rock composed of one or more serpentine groupminerals, the name originating from the similarity of the texture of the rock to that of the skin of a snake.” Wikipedia
They contain magnetite and are magnetic. I did a bit more research and apparently, I live on the Eastern Galicia Magnetic Anomaly! That is why these experiences are so intense here.
So, the ancients who called this place Ophiussa, the Land of Serpents and were themselves called the serpent or dragon people, recognized what that meant.
Recognition stages 5 & 6 that I describe above, need some evidential support. This is a complex subject, still under investigation, but here is an excerpt from a scientific journal that gets right to the point. In my view, most of the research of the last 20 years is corrupt. This is from a 1975 Scientific American article, entitled Chromosomal Proteins and Gene Regulation:
“We suggest that a specific nonhistone protein becomes phosphorylated, and because phosphate groups are negatively charged the nonhistone protein begins to repel the negatively charged DNA and also becomes strongly associated with the positively charged histones. The effect of these two processes is to cause the displacement of the histone-nonhistone protein complex from the DNA. The resulting naked area of DNA, now free of the inhibitory histone, can be transcribed into RNA.”
This excerpt is noteworthy because it describes gene expression in electromagnetic terms, as a response to the continuous effects of attraction and repelling. The biochemical interaction between hormones and gene expression has been well-studied, particularly in relation to thyroid hormones, and although the electrical aspect remains to be explored there is sufficient evidence already available to show that life functions electromagnetically, as well as biochemically. This makes for many interconnections and relationships that cannot be observed with the ordinary senses, but can be perceived from within the senses – ISP.
As more cosmic rays are now interacting with the earth’s atmosphere, due to the location of the earth within the galaxy, the electromagnetic potential between the upper atmosphere and the surface of the earth is also increasing – there are more electrical storms, flooding and extreme weather events. The conditions are very similar to those of 13th and 14th century Europe, when the Black Death also occurred. The events of those times have been well-documented in this report Black Death and Abrupt Earth Changes in the 14th Century.
I’ll be addressing the Black Death in more detail in the next post, the point I want to make here is that the Christian people of Europe (Christianity having been forced on them over many centuries) recognized the floods, plague and ‘death from the sky’ as evidence of Biblical prophecy and they (unwittingly) made it real. However, even during those times there were pockets and communities in every country across Europe who were not affected.
The xenosh and the Rhomay are in a war of recognition, to put it one way. I’ve mentioned before about how you recognize signs of healing, as opposed to symptoms of disease, in order to reboot your immune system. This is one way to ‘recognize recognition’ at the subjective and personal level, to test it and recognize the results. On a larger scale, the Rhomay win the war of recognition by first recognizing the Supernatural power of the Planetary Animal Mother and then recognizing Her responses to our focused intent. It is impossible for the xenosh to win this war, because the faculty of recognition is endowed in the Rhomay and the xenosh are using this faculty to turn themselves into something that is non-Rhomay. Accordingly, the more intensity they bring to their recognition of events supporting their master plan, the more dilute the effects of their actions. Conversely, the more intensity and focus you, Rhomay, bring to recognition the stronger you become.
The ancient Greeks called Galicia Ophiussa, Land of Serpents, because the people that lived there were said to worship serpents. There are serpent and spiral petroglyphs all over Galicia, dating from the bronze age that support this claim – as there are in many parts of the world.
The serpent, like the dragon, represents the telluric currents of the earth – the electro-magnetic energy lines that shape existence. It also represents the kundalini energy in the human, that grounds the earth energy and adds awareness to it – those who know how it works benefit from it as they aim it. The ancients knew something of this and their knowledge is now available to anyone who commands the power of the Planetary Animal Mother.
This is one aspect of the power of the Aeonic Mother, to be recognized by the Rhomay, that Spells out Christianity for Good.

The Differences Between Shamanic Realignment and the Telestic Method
The other day, in a chat with a Swedish kalika, we touched upon the differences between the Telestic Method and Shamanic Realignment, and I thought it might be useful to cover this here.
The Telestic Method
The Telestic Method is also known as telestic shamanism, telestic inquiry or simply, Instruction by the Light. It is the method of the ancient Mystery Schools of Eleusis and The Levant, as recovered by the Gnostic scholar and shaman, John Lash. In this method, participants agree a theme, question or command to take to the Light, ingest a brew of psychoactive plants (psilocybe today) and address the Light while standing in a state of cognitive ecstasy – this is a full mind-body trance learning experience. It can take weeks to unpack the intel received in such as session.
Back then, participants (always invitees) would have had many years to prepare for the session and they would have been in the company of adepts, who were used to working together and were highly knowledgable in various fields of arts and sciences. They would also have been part of an established community, with servants to take care of the preparations and to ensure that everyone was as comfortable as possible. And they would have had plenty of time to debrief and rest after the session.
Today, we have neither time nor infrastructure in our favour; potential participants come together with minimal preparation, barely able to carve a few days out of their hectic lives and often with unrealistic expectations. Notwithstanding the challenges, the method has been proven. I have witnessed the Organic Light on many occasions, including several times in a group with John Lash and others, many of whom also witnessed the OL. These sessions have been extraordinary, overwhelmingly beautiful, intense and life-changing, but I have no appetite for more at this point in time. Why is that?
My response to the intense pressure of these times is to prioritize my energy and attention on what is actionable and what gives me the most pleasure. I feel the need to be as efficient as I can be in whatever I do and I also seek a balance between immediate, medium and long-term pleasure. (Pleasure gives you immunity, after all.) That said, it feels somewhat self-indulgent to go to the Light for instruction on a matter that I’m not in any position to act upon, just for the immediate pleasure of satisfying my intellectual curiosity. Plus, it’s evident that many potential participants are not healthy enough to witness the OL, at first attempt anyway. Encountering the Goddess can never be guaranteed in any circumstances and expectations add another level of challenge. Many neophytes will have something of a ‘healing experience’ regardless, as the ‘allies’ will draw their attention to what needs to be corrected, but it is impossible to give the necessary support to anyone having such an experience in a mixed and largely unfamiliar group. All things considered, I prefer to focus on something actionable and have something to show for my efforts. In the longer term that would give me more satisfaction and pleasure too.
There is one notable exception: should the necessity arise, with the right participants present, it would give me the greatest pleasure to participate in a telestic inquiry for the purpose of identifying a target for a ritual act of contra-violence.
Background to Shamanic Realignment
Shamanic Realignment is a method I’ve been developing over the past couple of years, that draws on my previous work as a healer and therapist and brings it into line with what I’m learning through Planetary Tantra, Gaian Alchemy and the lifestyle of a new-Euro aboriginal. I’m going to give a little personal background here, so you can see what has brought me to this point.
In 2003, I had an inexplicable psychic experience, in which a friend-of-a-friend, within moments of him dying in a car crash in South Africa, contacted me and gave me a message. The experience was so intense that it destroyed the foundation of the world I knew and resulted in me abandoning my career. At that time I held a senior position in a multi-national publishing corporation, with all the trimmings and I enjoyed the high-life, but the diamond-sharp intensity of that psychic experience turned it all to dust and I had to move on. I realized that I knew nothing about the real world and I was consumed by the desire to learn. Barely into my explorations, in 2005, I had a near death experience. I consider that to be my shamanic initiation and along with it came what are quaintly referred to as ‘healing abilities’. In my efforts to understand these ‘abilities’ I took a masters degree in Consciousness and Transpersonal Psychology and qualified as a kinesiologist. I practised as a therapist until we left England in 2012. I’ve witnessed hundreds of healings that are not explicable within the current paradigm of medical science: slipped discs moving back into place, tumours disappearing, scars disappearing, wounds healing, abscesses disappearing, spines straightening, arthritic limbs straightening, pain diminishing and many people coming off medications – all within minutes or a few weeks. By chance, I started work in Spain within two weeks of moving here, and experienced the same results. I was never foolish enough to think that I was causing these healings, and it didn’t work for everyone, but it was clear that I was deeply involved in the process in some way and I really needed to understand how what was going on.
I ‘discovered’ the Sophianic Narrative in the summer of 2013 and first met John Lash in the autumn of 2014. At that point I took a break from the healing work, primarily as the result of asking myself one simple question: what is going to do more good in the world, ‘healing’ 10,000 ordinary people or killing one psychopath? As it happens, this question was necessary to break me out of the limits of the Judeo-Christian mindset that puts service above pleasure. In opening up to the exploration of killing magic, the flip-side to healing magic, my desire to learn how this power works– what set me on this path in the first place – was rekindled and put into a better perspective.
Since 2015, I’ve guided at least eight shamanic realignment sessions, with varying degrees of success and no negative results. This is ‘serpent power’ by one description. I’m learning how to use it, for the pleasure of learning, and sharing what I’m learning for the pleasure of sharing. Any healing that might occur is a delightful proof of process for me, as well as a benefit to the individual concerned. The process falls under the umbrella of Gaian Alchemy and will developed further within that framework.
The Shamanic Realignment Session
I use the term Shamanic Realignment rather than the more common, Shamanic Healing, as these sessions are not limited to healing. (I also have an aversion to new age ‘shamanic journeying’ and all that goes with it.) However, it has been my experience so far that if there is something to be healed the life force, or kundalini, will naturally move to address this problem first. The body needs to be sufficiently stable before you begin to explore power sharing and you can’t force it. I’ve only moved into power sharing in the last two sessions.
Shamanic realignment sessions are guided in small groups, probably no more than four. The guide needs to be competent in working with psilocybin and with his/her own senses, so that he/she can describe what is happening in the session as it occurs. The other participants MUST give the human guide permission to guide them before the session starts, or else the natural faculty of free will intervene and the session will lose focus. A general intention for the session must be agreed by all participants ie healing, or learning, but individuals can focus on their own health issues. I think a short ‘mantra’, such as ‘heal my kidney infection’ is helpful, to bring the mind into focus when it wanders. In the earlier sessions I had here, I sensed the presence of either Vajrayogini or Vudasi almost immediately, and now I invoke one of them from the outset. You literally invite the Aeonic Mother into your body.
With practice, the guide will be able to narrate what is happening, as it is happening, which helps to keep the other participants focused. For example: She is at the root chakra now, it feels slightly uncomfortable, keep breathing, the pressure is increasing – there it popped and now She’s moving onto the next chakra….keep breathing etc. (It is important to keep reminding the other participants to breathe, as they often hold their breath!) There can be some discomfort, especially in problem areas, there will be changes in temperature (internal and external), there might be dull pain, pressure, butterflies, squirmy feelings, but it is never severe. The kundalini moves from the root chakra upwards and each chakra is passed/cleared with a jolt or a popping sensation – you can’t miss it! The guide will have in his/her body an awareness of what the others are experiencing, even if the other participants are having different experiences. There will usually be five or six ‘waves’ in a session, with a short rest in between and it will last two to three hours.
I use the term shamanic because the session is conducted outside of ordinary consciousness, in the symbiotic mind; the ‘inability’ to heal a disease or condition is an illusion generated by the xenosh and maintained by the social mind. We are designed to be self-healing and I’m absolutely confident in saying this, because I’ve witnessed it hundreds of times – and I’m confident that many of you will be able to witness it too. This does not mean that anyone can heal from anything at any time, as there are other factors involved. However, the objective is to reconnect with the symbiotic mind, which in turn facilitates the correct use of the imagination, so that the body can heal instantly if possible and the healing work can also continue back in ordinary consciousness. It helps you stop working against yourself.
Once the body is stable and able to hold the kundalini energy, it naturally wants to move outwards. And it requires a special kind of concentration to hold the kundalini in your body, while allowing it to expand at the same time. This is achieved by guiding participants to focus together on the same thing, either the fire or the crown of the tipi, for example – just to keep looking at the same thing without effort – concentration, not constipation. At the same time, to be aware of the sounds outside the tipi, especially the low hum, or purr of the Planetary Animal Mother. Sometimes it is helpful to synchronize breathing. Initially, this activity causes agitation outside, the dogs bark and get over-excited and keep running in and out. Holding concentration this way causes the temperature to drop and generates silence across the valley. I have the sense that this is extended protection, and with practice it can be called upon in ordinary consciousness.
Our sessions here are conducted in the tipi, which is perfect to contain the energy and to keep focus and concentration. I can’t imagine doing this in a city apartment.
Summary of Differences Between a Telestic Session and Shamanic Realignment
The main differences between Shamanic Realignment and the Telestic Method are as follows:
In the Telestic Method, the participants stretch outwards to the Plenary Sovereign Intelligence to address Her in ecstatic trance and seek answers to a question, or command Her in a specific task; in Shamanic Realignment, participants invite the PSI into their bodies, to correct a specific problem or to learn how to command Her power.
The Telestic Method is transpersonal in its aim; Shamanic Realignment is personal and more suitable for healing purposes etc..
The syntax for the Telestic Method must be pristine for it to work; in Shamanic Realignment an intention is necessary and the distillation of it emerges in pristine syntax AFTER the session.
The ‘dose’ used in the Telestic Method is around twice that as for a Shamanic Realignment.
The Telestic Method requires participants to stand upright and present their question/command on initial observation of the OL; in Shamanic Realignment, participants can sit or lie down, as physical comfort and relaxation is part of the process.
Telestic sessions must be conducted outside in nature; it’s better to hold a Shamanic Realignment session is an enclosed space, such as a tipi.
I’m working on the Gaian Alchemy Course at the moment, editing it for publication on Nemeta and getting ready to start teaching it at retreats here next year. As always happens when you focus on anything to do with the Sophianic Mysteries, your attention intensifies the subject of study and brings it to the forefront of your life. Such is the alchemical process of magnification, right in your face. As such, I’m writing this in alt-reel time, as a work-in-progress and a taster of what’s to come.
In the Gaian Alchemy Course, John Lash describes the purpose of the ‘Great Work’, the incremental (increasing) aspect of the Human Effect on the Cosmos, as such:
“In simple language this means [the Human] must realize how to fulfill itself by giving out far more than it ever takes in, or needs to take in. This of course totally defies the second law of thermodynamics, the law of entropy which states that any “energy system” will ultimately exhaust itself in the process of converting in-put and out-put back and forth.
But to defy entropy is quite presumptuous. A genuine alchemist will never make any fantastic claims that cannot be supported by the evidence of nature. If the alchemist sees far-reaching possibilities of the Human, the prospect must be verified through a real phenomenon already existing in nature, so that what the alchemist proposes can be seen as a natural extension of that phenomenon.
The notion of the Human extending and completing Nature is [summarized]: what Nature takes a long time to evolve, the Human finishes off in a short time. So far, we see mostly the destructive aspects of this dynamic. But the alchemists had another angle on all this. In many strange statements, they frequently referred to the Human as taking up the work of Nature and completing it.
“In the symbols and rites of metallurgical operations there comes into being the idea of an active collaboration of man and nature, perhaps even the belief that man, by his own work, is capable of superseding the processes of nature.” The Forge and the Crucible: The Origins and Structure of Alchemy, Mircea Eliade.”
So my first question was: where is the evidence for Human increase, or completion of the processes of Nature?
One of my favourite methods of inquiry is to form a question and hold it lightly in my mind, resisting groping around for answers from any pre-existing knowledge or experience. Some patience is needed (not my personal forte) and after a while, at exactly the right time the answer is revealed through a series of ‘clues’. The Wisdom Goddess loves this game and guides you to what you are looking for, and more.
And She collapses Time in the process. The Aeonic Mother had, in fact, been guiding me to this question before I was even aware I had a question and had already set me up to begin exploring the interaction of minerals in the body – I’ve written posts on sulphur and iodine and in the blink of an eye, a book called Minerals for the Genetic Code, by Charles Walters, dropped into my lap.
I found this book very interesting. It describes the work of Dr Richard Olree who has created a ‘map’ that brings together several different ‘perspectives’ of the human body and finds the correlations between them. These perspectives are the Standard Genetic Code, the Walter Russell table of the elements (as opposed to the more familiar Mendelyev table), the relevant electric valences from the Mendelyev table, the amino acids that are coded, the vertebra of the spine, the meridians and the I Ching. The resulting map is called the Olree Biological Periodic Chart.
A Cautionary Note on Genes
Before I go into the main topic of this post, I want to make a brief comment on the subject of genetics: the theory that DNA makes RNA which makes protein is referred to as ‘the central dogma’ and is mostly theoretical. The more the genome is studied (in the mode of current science) the less is known and the only common ground is that the current view is incomplete, simplistic and not supported by evidence. Bruce Lipton’s research presented in the Biology of Belief, that genes are not deterministic of behaviour via the proteins they code, but responsive to signals from the environment that are themselves shaped by belief and perception, follows a well-developed line of inquiry.
“For biological research, the twentieth century has arguably been the century of the gene. The central importance of the gene as a unity of inheritance and function has been crucial to our present understanding of many biological phenomena. Nonetheless, we may well have come to the point where the use of the term “gene” is of limited value and might in fact be a hindrance to our understanding of the genome. Although this may sound heretical, especially coming from a card-carrying geneticist, it reflects the fact that, unlike chromosomes, genes are not physical objects but are merely concepts that have acquired a great deal of historic baggage over the past decades.”
Geneticist William Gelbart (1998)
Modern gene research bears a certain resemblance to Pasteur’s germ research, in which the theory with the greatest profit potential, ie one germ, one pharmaceutical to kill it, killed offthe superiorscientific research regarding how the organism responded to the environment, of Antoine Beauchamp. Today, you just need to identify the gene that causes the problem and money will be thrown at you to splice it out!
Watson and Crick won the Nobel Prize for discovering the structure of DNA in 1962, after at least 10 years research into how DNA stored and replicated hereditary traits. The double-helix DNA model is familiar to everyone, but these images are all computer generated and based on X-ray crystallography, which involves scattering X-rays off atoms in crystallized arrays of DNA to form complex patterns of dots on photographic film. Images are then interpreted using complex mathematics. They are not real.
These images are of DNA strands, seen through an electron microscope, which sees electrons rather than photons. The first image (A) shows the chromosomes, which only come to light when the cell is preparing to divide. The bottom image is of chromatin, which is how DNA looks when it is not dividing.
I am considering the outrageous possibility that the Anthropic genome is not to be found in the DNA at all, but (at least in part) projected into the ‘vessel’ with the DNA acting as a receiver of sorts. Not so far fetched maybe if you consider the work of Luc Montagnier, joint winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2008, who claims that DNA can send electromagnetic imprints of itself over distance, which can be used by enzymes to create exact copies of the original DNA. (See: DNA Waves and Water. ) He filed a US Patent on technology that can detect the ‘phantom replica’ of DNA, unfortunately without knowing that the US Patent Office is run by xenosh crooks.
Whichever way you look at it, genetics is far from settled science, so bear that in mind as you read this post.
The I Ching and Gaian Alchemy
When you’re hot on the trail, everything happens at once and this showed up right on time in Lesson 4 of the Gaian Alchemy Course:
“The three stages of the Great Work are Formation, Fixation, Multiplication. In the last stage, the multiplicatio or magnificatio in the old latin lingo, a condition of total porosity is achieved in the human mass, in the flesh.
The same idea is expressed with elegant clarity in the I Ching, or Book of Changes. The commentary on the 42nd hexagram, “I” or “Increase” says:
“A sacrifice of the higher element that produced an increase of the lower is called an out-and-out increase: it indicates the spirit that alone has power to save the world.”
And the text adds that “this conception expresses the fundamental idea upon which the Book of Changes is based.”
Infinity is Change. In this passage “I” is the exact equivalent of increment in the alchemical sense. An “out-and-out” increase must be one in which a new element is truly added to what is originally given.
Only a physics that excludes the Human could ignore this illuminating primary idea by positing the inevitable run-down of creation into a snuffed-out slag-heap adrift in aching emptiness.
But this is not our way.”
To know what and how the Anthropos does to complete the work of Sophia and Thelete, requires a shift in perception and the ability to hold that perception stable in the symbiotic mind and simultaneously act upon it. The Sophianic Narrative provides the conceptual framework for such a shift, which will lead to an actual physiological transmutation caused by recognition of the true material structure of the human animal and its co-creative functionality.
So, while drunk on this notion, I looked up what Dr Olree had to say about Hexagram 42. What a let down! He has Hex 42 linked with a STOP codon (which ends a transcription process) and Lumbar 3, which manages the legs and urination. That does not correlate with the meaning of ‘Increase’, which incidentally, he has translated as ‘Benefit’.
When I first looked at the Olree Chart, it struck me as odd that he worked from the bottom up on the spine, starting with the Coccyx bones, and correlated the hexagrams in reverse; so Coccyx 4 correlated with Hex 64 and at the top of the spine, Hex 1 with the Cervical 1 bone at the top of the neck. This makes sense as Hex 1 refers to the creative force, which tends to be associated with mind and the head, but it can also be taken as a reference to the initial conditions of the inception of life. The dragons refer to the telluric currents of the Aeon Sophia as She became the earth.
My copy of the I Ching says:
“When all the lines are nines, it means:
There appears a flight of dragons without heads.
So, I wondered what would show up if I reversed the order of the Hexagrams in the Olree Chart – I Ching ker-ching!
Tritium and Hexagram 42
When I reversed the order of the I Ching hexagrams in the Olree Chart, #42 correlated with Thoracic disc 5, the lung meridian (active at 4am), the amino acid asparagine and the element tritium (bebegen in the Russell chart).
This woman is indicating the location of Thoracic 5 on the front of the body.
In the Olree Chart, this point on the body correlates with tritium, also known as hydrogen-3 as it is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen.
According to the Wikipedia entry on tritium:
“The nucleus of tritium (sometimes called a triton) contains one proton and two neutrons, whereas the nucleus of protium (by far the most abundant hydrogen isotope) contains one proton and no neutrons. Naturally occurring tritium is extremely rare on Earth, where trace amounts are formed by the interaction of the atmosphere with cosmic rays. It can be produced by irradiating lithium metal or lithium-bearing ceramic pebbles in a nuclear reactor. Tritium is used as a radioactive tracer, in radioluminescent light sources for watches and instruments, and, along with deuterium, as a fuel for nuclear fusion reactions with applications in energy generation and weapons. The name of this isotope is derived from the Greek tritos meaning ‘third’.”
According to the Russian Wikipedia entry (which is different to the English version), it costs $30 million to produce one kilo of tritium.
Tritium is an odourless, tasteless, invisible vapour that is a transmutational element. It decays into helium-3, a radioactive isotope of helium.
This is part of what the Russian Wikipedia says about helium-3:
“Most of the helium-3 on Earth, preserved from the time of its formation. It is dissolved in the mantle and gradually enters the atmosphere, its isotopic abundance in the mantle the magma is 4-10 parts per million parts of helium-4, and some of the materials of mantle origin, have 10-40 times higher ratio than in the atmosphere. However, its supply from the mantle into the10 parts per million parts of helium-4, and some of the materials of mantle origin, have 10-40 times higher ratio than in the atmosphere. However, its supply from the mantle into the atmosphere (through volcanoes and fissures in the bark) is estimated at only a few pounds a year. Some of the helium-3 is emitted in the decay of tritium, spallation reactions on lithium (under the action of alpha particles and cosmic rays) and comes from the solar wind. On the Sun and in the atmospheres of the giant planets of the primary helium-3 is much greater than in the Earth’s atmosphere.”
And this is an addition in the English Wikipedia:
“Production, sales and distribution of helium-3 in the United States are managed by the US Department of Energy (DOE) Isotope Program. Virtually all helium-3 used in industry today is produced from the radioactive decay of tritium. Tritium is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen and is typically produced by bombarding lithium-6 with neutrons in a nuclear reactor. The lithium nucleus absorbs a neutron and splits into helium-4 and tritium. Tritium decays into helium-3 with a half-life of 12.3 years, so helium-3 can be produced by simply storing the tritium until it undergoes radioactive decay.
Tritium is a critical component of nuclear weapons and historically it was produced and stockpiled primarily for this application. The decay of tritium into helium-3 reduces the explosive power of the fusion warhead, so periodically the accumulated helium-3 must be removed from warhead reservoirs and tritium in storage. Helium-3 removed during this process is marketed for other applications.
For decades this has been, and remains, the principal source of the world’s helium-3.However, since the signing of the START I Treaty in 1991 the number of nuclear warheads that are kept ready for use has decreased This has reduced the quantity of helium-3 available from this source. Helium-3 stockpiles have been further diminished by increased demand, primarily for use in neutron radiation detectors and medical diagnostic procedures. US industrial demand for helium-3 reached a peak of 70,000 liters (approximately 8 kg) per year in 2008. Price at auction, historically about $100/liter, reached as high as $2000/liter Since then, demand for helium-3 has declined to about 6000 liters per year due to the high cost and efforts by the DOE to recycle it and find substitutes.
The DOE recognized the developing shortage of both tritium and helium-3. and began producing tritium by lithium irradiation at the Tennessee Valley Authority‘s Watts Bar Nuclear Generating Station in 2010. In this process tritium-producing burnable absorber rods (TPBARs) containing lithium in a ceramic form are inserted into the reactor in place of the normal boron control rods Periodically the TPBARs are replaced and the tritium extracted.
Currently only one reactor is used for tritium production but the process could, if necessary, be vastly scaled up to meet any conceivable demand simply by utilizing more of the nation’s power reactors. Substantial quantities of tritium and helium-3 could also be extracted from the heavy water moderator in CANDU nuclear reactors.”
Apparently, plans are underway for mining helium-3 on the moon!
And then there’s this:
“Despite the objections of local fishermen, the tritium-tainted water stored at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant will be dumped into the sea, a top official at Tokyo Electric says.
“The decision has already been made,” Takashi Kawamura, chairman of Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc., said in a recent interview with the media.
Tritium typically poses little risk to human health unless ingested in high amounts, and ocean discharges of diluted volumes of tritium-tainted water are a routine part of nuclear power plant operations. This is because it is a byproduct of nuclear operations but cannot be filtered out of water.
As of July 6, about 777,000 tons were stored in about 580 tanks at the Fukushima plant, which is quickly running out of space.*
“And I’m beginning to wonder, really wonder, if the timing a Fukushima with correction may not be one of the greatest lessons in duplicity that comes out of the GNE. Consider that Jupiter is now in the twins, I was looking at it about an hour ago, it was directly at the apex over the house here. Crystal-clear evening, the night sky, black as onyx or ebony. Brilliant figure of Orion, high in the sky. And to the left of Orion, Jupiter in the twins. The twins have a connotation of duplicity which is a form of evil and manipulation. But the twins also have connotation up doubling, and let’s say, let’s add to that, let’s add to the themes of the twins, the theme of a Janus like power. A power that has two faces, destructive and regenerative. Its obvious and the evidence is there as seen in the documentary clips in Hiroshima Mon Amour, that nuclear energy can be extremely destructive when it is made to explode in the form of a bomb. But suppose that coupled with that destruction is a regenerative power. Suppose that the much feared radio activity has, in Gaian terms, some kind of regenerative role. Who’s to say it doesn’t? We haven’t been exposed to it long enough to know. The evidence is skewed by the horrific connotations that go along with the word radio activity, radiation disease, and so forth. But in fact where is the evidence that radiation has produced massive mutation of our species since 1945?”
And a bit further on in the Briefing:
“Because you can search far and wide and I don’t think that you’ll find anybody, any scientist, any expert, or even any mystic telling you what is the place of radio activity in nature, in Her on Her terms. We didn’t invent it. Ever since 1945 the human species has been laboring under the illusion that we created Atomic Energy. This is ridiculous. Nor did we create the radiation that precedes from atomic explosions. We did not create that energy. She did. And so the question to ask is; what does She use it for? What is it? Maybe this is the moment to really turn the human mind around and to look at Gaian processes at the most elementary levels matter as if seeing it through Her mind and Her eyes. I do not feel confident about what I’m telling you now, but in a way I do, in an odd way I do feel confident. Here’s one thing I can say of which I feel confident. If nuclear radiation so-called, is actually a bionic excitation produced by the first attention of the Aeon Sophia, then it must be verifiable as such.”
“That is where correction begins, on the frontier of Gaian Alchemy… or frontiers because there are more than one. There are more than one frontier; it is a vast frontier, defined by those operations the Aeon Sophia performs through the use of her first attention. Whether she performs them at the so called elementary level of matter, in the presence of the radioactive minerals that occur naturally in the earth, such as uranium and plutonium, cesium, whether she performs those actions in the realm of biology and genetics, whether she performs them in maritime biology, in the chemistry of the oceans, whether she performs them in the dynamic chemistry of the atmosphere, the troposphere, the ionosphere, and whether she performs them deep in the physio-chemical and neuro-chemical recesses of the human animal. These are the frontiers of Gaian Alchemy. At the moment that correction dawns, so comes that opportunity. This momentous opportunity to reframe and revision the science the theoretical and applied science in those many domains where the operations of the Aeon Sophia are perpetual, and often inaccessible although ultimately not beyond the range of human investigation, experimentation and verification.”
And that is where I am now, on the wild frontier of Gaian Alchemy, launching off into a new adventure. So, what is tritium to the Planetary Animal Mother? And what is the function of tritium in the human body? What links Gaian Alchemy, Hexagram 42 and tritium?
I can’t answer those questions, yet. In the Aeonic timframe, we are barely into Correction, maybe 10-11 seconds, but everything happens at once in alt-reel time. I can barely keep up, which is why this exposition is somewhat rambling and inconclusive – to misquote some one: I had no time to write a shorter post!
In researching tritium/bebegen I looked to find what Walter Russell had to say on it. That will be covered in a subsequent post, but here’s a little curiosity to end with: on a site called www.merlib.org, subtitled the Modern Energy Research Library, at the bottom of the page on tritium is a link to a company called Trivortex – this is the company that Anton created, he who made the water discs for Nemeta. Coincidence or clue?????
Iodine is one of the most striking and beautiful of all elements. As a solid, it is a heavy, grey-black, metallic-looking material. When heated, it does not melt. Instead, it sublimes, turning directly into a gas without first melting. The resulting iodine vapour has a violet colour and a harsh odour. If a cold ironbar, is placed into the vapour, iodine changes back to a solid, forming delicate, metallic crystals.
Iodine is rare in the solar system and the Earth’s crust, 47–60th in abundance and concentrated in only a few places, like Chile, where the crystals in this image were mined. It is said that these places were once covered by oceans that evaporated, but the geological origins of the iodine ore found in Chile, have not been confirmed. As the Aeon solidified into the earth, the violet dust of Her dessicated breath eventually found its way into the oceans. The single most significant evolutionary event for eukaryotes (nucleated celled organisms), including humans, occurred when seaweeds concentrated iodine. From this process came multicellular organisms, vertebrates and humans. When seaweed captured iodine from the ocean, concentrating it up to 20,000 times in the process, it created the conditions for the emergence of new multi-celled life-forms. The iodine ‘partnered’ with the amino acid tyrosine to produce thyroxine and the first endocrine hormone was created. Thyroxine is also the first hormone to emerge in fetal development and it controls the body temperature at birth, activating the metamorphic changes in the lungs that cause the baby to take its first gasp of air.
The concentration of iodine in the oceans is around 0.05 ppm iodine, meaning that there are approximately 35 million metric tons of iodine in the world’s oceans, but extraction is impractical at these low concentrations. The best natural source of iodine today is kelp, but you will probably need a lot of it.
Iodine’s affiliation for tyrosine (and histidine) is why it is so effective against all classes of pathogens: gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, mycobacteria, fungi, yeasts, moulds and protozoa. The membranes of these single-celled creatures all contain tyrosine that is dissolved on contact with iodine, as it seeks to make ore complex life-forms. Most bacteria are killed within 15 to 30 seconds of contact. Because the microbicidal action of iodine is related to several directly toxic effects on the cell wall, rather than through specific molecular pathways (as used by antibiotics), resistance is highly unlikely and reports of iodine-resistant strains are exceptionally rare.
“Iodine is by far the best antibiotic,antiviral and antiseptic of all time.” Dr. David Derry
Clearly, iodine was a major competitor to the pharmaceutical industry and had to be demonized.
The Demonization of Iodine
Bernard Courtois discovered iodine by accident in 1811, and from that time up until the middle of the 20th century iodine was used as a panacea for all manner of ailments. It was well-studied for wound care and healing and considered to be a safe and essential nutrient, to prevent cretinism and goiter and to promote healthy fetal brain development. Unfortunately, it was also cheap and easy to produce and presented a significant threat to the budding pharmaceutical disease industry. So, through stealth, deception and outright fraud its proponents, collaborators and pawns launched the “iodophobia campaign”, that is still in operation today.
It began with the double-dealing hand of the iodization of salt, introduced by the Morton Salt Company in the US in 1924. On the face of it, the iodization of salt was a good thing, as it eliminated most incidences of goiter in America, but goiter is just the tip of the iceberg regarding iodine consumption. The body needs both iodine and iodide (the salt of iodine) as they concentrate in different parts of the body; the thyroid needs iodide and the breasts and prostate need iodine. Many other tissues in the body can concentrate either form. These include glands like the salivary, liver, spleen, kidneys and intestines. Iodized salt contains iodide only, as it is more stable, but the actual content of iodized salt is ridiculously low, just enough to reduce observable goiter. The facts are that only 10% of the iodide content in iodized salt is is bioavailable, and by the time the salt reaches the grocery store about 50% of its iodide content has already evaporated and it will lose another 50% (approx.) of within another 30 days. Additionally, iodized salt contains lots of aluminium – but it was cheap and available everywhere.
Iodine was a medicine at the time, so adding it to ordinary, everyday salt and telling people that it was ‘good for them’ was a sleight of hand. The first incidence of adding a medicine to a staple food item or condiment. This all passed smoothly and paved the way for the introduction of fluoride into drinking water in 1945. Fluoride is in the same halogen group as iodine, but being lighter it displaces iodine if there is an insufficient amount of iodine in the body. Sufficient levels of iodine will displace fluoride, but when the body has insufficient iodine it uses the closest chemical equivalent available as a substitute, which in many cases is fluoride, but fluoride does not enable the body to make thyroid hormones and is a hormone disruptor. Chlorine, also in the same halogen group, also inhibits iodine absorption. What a coincidence!
In 1948, a study that came to be known as the “Wolff-Chaikoff Effect” was published in Berkeley, which claimed that daily doses of iodine over 0.2mg/L will cause hypothyroidism in humans. The study was entirely fraudulent. It was conducted on rats, but none of the lab rats in the study became hypothyroid and the values were never extrapolated for humans. Nonetheless, this became accepted medical fact and iodophobia went viral. Further studies reportedly ‘confirmed the facts’ and in 1965, iodine was banned from use as a dough conditioner for bread in the UK and US. Through the 1970s and 80s in the US, iodine was replaced in baked goods by bromate, a derivative of bromine (see the periodic table) which is typically used as a flame retardant chemical. Bromine/bromate is banned for use in Europe and many other countries, but not the US, even though it is a know goitrogen (promotes goiter) carcinogen and “zombifying agent’. The use of bromate correlates with increased prevalence of obesity, diabetes, hypertension, cancer of the breast and thyroid glands in the U.S. Populations. For more informationsee: The History of Iodine in Medicine, Guy E. Abraham MD
By 1980 iodine was no longer a staple of the home medicine cabinet, replaced by Dettol or Savlon and various other less effective, and more expensive, products. Iodine remains more effective as a topical agent against most bacterial infections, including MRSA, pneumonia and even Lyme Disease (lookup Dr Klinghardt on Lyme Disease for more info).
Mainstream medicine sets the RDA level at 150 micrograms for both men and women. This ignores the fact that estrogen inhibits the action of iodine, which is why women are nine times more likely to suffer from hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) than men. The ovaries produce their own thyroid hormone to compensate for this effect, but this stops in menopause contributing to health problems for post-menopausal women. According to many doctors who have studied the benefits of iodine, the sufficiency iodine need is probably around 12.5 milligrams, a significantly higher amount. 150 micrograms is a deceptive number that is actually very small. A microgram is 1/1000th of a milligram, so 150 micrograms is 1/100th or 1/400th the amount that the iodine doctors say that we need
Iodine is no longer mentioned in medical training or textbooks and as hypothyroidism runs rampant, it is said to be caused by too much iodine, when the exact opposite is true. Hyperthyroidism is in fact a very rare medical condition, said to be caused by an ‘autonomous thyroid nodule’ which is a thyroid hormone secreting nodule on the thyroid gland that is not regulated by the pituitary gland – hence autonomous. Most of the world is now iodine deficient, 90-98%, depending on which research reports you consider. It is not just physical health that is under attack.
According to Dr Jorge Flechas: iodine deficiency is the number one cause of mental retardation in the world.
The physical, mental and emotional health benefits of iodine literally take your breath away.
Iodine for health
The health benefits for iodine, both in terms of preventing disease and supporting the body in healing from disease are just too numerous for me to go into here – here are some examples and some additional resources:
Consistent research has shown these conditions to be related to iodine deficiency:
autoimmune thyroid illnesses
autism and ADHD
What’s more, the above conditions and many more have been improved or resolved with iodine supplementation. Iodine supplementationin the proper amounts increases urinary excretion of heavy metals such as lead and mercury, and has a detoxifying effect by increasing excretion of fluoride, bromide and chloride derivatives.
Iodine is effective in eliminating skin cancer, which is a fungal related condition caused by candidiasis, according to the work of Dr Simoncini. See Cancer is a Fungus.
The slide show below provides a good summary and starting point for further research
Dr. Albert Szent Györgi, Nobel Laureate who discovered Vitamin C, took 770 milligrams per day of potassium iodide as a preventative dose:
“When I was a medical student, iodine in the form of KI (Potassium Iodide) was the universal medicine. Nobody knew what it did, but it did something and did something good. We students used to sum up the situation in this little rhyme: If ye don’t know where, what, and why Prescribe ye then K and I”
Iodine and Regeneration
It is generally well-known that iodine is used by the thyroid gland, to make thyroid hormones and that these hormones regulate metabolism. However, iodine is also essential for the immune system and intimately involved in gene expression. When the body receives sufficient iodine and the thyroid gland has adequate supplies, any remaining iodine is stored in all other glands and tissues, the extracellular fluid and the lymphatic system, where it performs multiple functions.
“All the blood in the body passes though the thyroid every seventeen minutes. Because the cells making up this gland have an affinity for iodine, during this seventeen-minute passage the gland’s secretion of iodine kills weak germs that may have gained entry into the blood through an injury to the skin, the lining of nose or throat, or through absorption of food from the digestive tract. Strong, virulent germs are rendered weaker during their passage through the thyroid gland. With each seventeen minutes that rolls around they are made still weaker until finally they are killed if the gland has its normal supply of iodine. If it does not, it cannot kill harmful germs circulating in the blood as Nature intended it should.”
Folk Medicine, Dr DeForest Clinton Jarvis
Doctors who work with iodine consider autoimmune diseases to be related to damage to the cells of the thyroid gland, pancreas and other glands. When dead cells enter the blood stream, the proteins are foreign to the body, causing the body’s immune system to manufacture antibodies that are capable of attacking normal tissue. When there are sufficient levels of iodine in the blood stream, it neutralizes many of the dead cells, working with the immune system and preventing it from becoming overwhelmed. Iodine triggers apoptosis, (programmed cell death) and is found in high concentrations in areas such as in the stomach and nasal passages, where it acts against bacteria, fungus and other pathogens.
The ‘anti-cancer’ properties of iodine have been mentioned above. My view is that there really is no such disease as cancer. Cancer is a label put on various symptoms, that are actually signs of the body working to heal itself. Sadly, innate healing functions are too often impaired through toxicity, malnutrition (including iodine deficiency), dehydration and inappropriate interventions and eventually the body can become overwhelmed.
More interesting is iodine’s involvement in gene expression. This function is often described as its ability to ‘switch off’ various cancer causing genes. What this really means is that iodine, via its apoptosis triggering mechanism, is preventing damaged genes from making copies of themselves, exacerbating the damage. It is unlikely that iodine is directly involved in regeneration, as Dr Robert Becker (The Body Electric) ascertained in his early studies, but it has a huge supporting role in clearing the field and getting the body fit for regeneration/transmutation.
Iodine in Food
A short comment on this: most of the information related to the iodine content of various foods is entirely fallacious. The iodine content of any food is dependent upon the iodine content of the soil in which it grows – without knowing the iodine content of the soil in which your food is grown, it is simply impossible to know the iodine content of your food. Average iodine content for types of food grown in Switzerland, will be very different than for the same food types grown in Hawaii.
As a very general rule, ocean-side soils have a higher iodine content than inland and mountainous soils. That said, you would still have to eat around 10-20 pounds of fish per day, to get 13 milligrams of iodine.
iodine and the super-learning event
It is no coincidence that iodine caught my attention in the closing shift of the first phase of the Super-learning event. Iodine is essential for cognitive function and you need to be up to speed in order to participate fully in this event, if that is your desire.
Iodine deficiency is recognized as the most common cause of preventable brain damage in the world. Even moderate deficiency results in a loss of at least 10 – 15 IQ points.
Conversely, sufficiency in iodine can raise a deficient IQ by 10-15 IQ points.
Iodine is needed by the thyroid to produce the thyroid hormones T4 and T3. The butterfly shaped thyroid gland is part of the endocrine system, the biochemical ‘engine’ of the body that works in harmony with the electrical engine of the nervous system. The thyroid secretes hormones that enter your circulatory system and are transported throughout your body. Every cell has receptor sites for thyroid hormones. Insufficient thyroid hormones result in your brain having to make many adjustments and energy conservation decisions to keep you operational, all while being itself undernourished.
Insufficient iodine has a negative affect on the neurotransmitters in your brain. This can result in depression, brain fog, anxiety, learning and memory problems, and ultimately lead to neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Thyroid hormones are involved in dopamine release, the reward system for learning, which is involved in cognition memory and mood, and the ‘feel good’ hormones serotonin and GABA. However, the body will prioritise the utilization of iodine and thyroid hormones so that essential physiological needs are addressed first. This is another reason why iodine deficiency results in a lower IQ.
Some researchers have remarked on the incongruence between the need for iodine and its non-availability in so many regions. I think this is an ‘end-times factor’, perhaps a selection vector. Even though vast areas of the planet are iodine deficient, iodine is still (at this point at least) relatively cheap and easy to get hold of and there are many excellent resources available to support self dosage. You just have to have sufficient intelligence and motivation to look into it for yourself.
That said: is it a coincidence that the Planetary Animal Mother is currently flooding areas of recognised iodine deficiency, Vietnam, Southern India and China with iodine rich seawater?
The one-eyed monster of the title refers to ‘the authorities’ who started the fires here, in Portugal and in California too. They’ve been around for a long time, but now the RHOMAY know exactly who they are and where to find them.
You, RHOMAY are the only authority there is. You ‘author’ your life.
