The Warrior Priestess

The Role of the Warrior Priestess

This post spews out of my repugnance at the vile creatures of the totally misguided women’s protest movement, but what could I say that hasn’t already been said? Instead, I’m going to push that spectre of poisoned femininity out of my mind and try to define the role of the warrior priestess, or shaman, if you prefer.

This role was incepted in the Andalucian Retreat in the Kamala shift of 2015 and it is available, as an archetype if you will, to any woman who claims it and can handle it. The lineage of the warrior priestess is represented in ancient art from all over the world, from Aztec warrior goddesses to the female warrior shaman of Siberia and China and the war goddesses of Greece and Turkey, Egypt and India. In northern Afghanistan, an excavation of 1978-9 unearthed a tomb containing the remains of three warrior priestesses and two priestesses, thought to be from around the second millennium BCE. A male of around 30 years old wearing the attire of the warrior priestess was also buried in the same tomb and, leading to speculation that he was a eunuch. Was this early evidence of the same infection that is driving emasculation and the corruption of the gender binary today?

I am not advocating a return to a matriarchal society, if ever there was one. I am saying that female A11s, need to reclaim the spirit of the Mistress of the Animals and work with their men to hunt down and kill the predators that hide among us, before we can begin to build a new society, like nothing that has ever been before on this planet. To claim back their ‘power’, women need to engage with the source of all power – the earth. I saw the vestigial remains of the elaborate headdresses of the female shamanic warriors of the ancient world, as if distorted through a carnival mirror, in the ‘pink pussy’ hats of the pavlovian feminists on parade, and I also saw the turning point.

Feminine power is not found in politics, although it can affect politics and it’s certainly not found in feminism or any women’s study group. You find it in the woods and mountains, by rivers and lakes, and by following the lunar shifts to get to know the moods of the earth – Planetary Tantra. Women were the healers, not only because of the maternal instinct to take care of their families and clans, but because the close study of the interaction between animals and the healing plants and minerals is how we learn to handle the power of the earth. Every woman who takes herself out of the mainstream starts to look at natural healing and plant medicine, without even knowing that this is the call of her shamanic ancestors vibrating through her DNA. From plant medicine, to knowledge of the psychoactive plants, to poison plants and from the psychoactive plants to deeper knowledge of the natural world, to the anointment of kings and then genocide. The history is easily accessible to anyone who wants to look.

The role of the warrior priestess is just a character you can choose to play in the dreaming of the Aeonic Mother. It does not mean you are a reincarnation of any witches of the past, although you may have access to their memories. It does not make you a goddess or anything other than human. If you choose this role, you get immediate access to all the power of the earth, there are no intermediary steps, but if you cannot handle that power you will get badly burned. It seems to drive people insane. The Gaian Tantra Vow is the only method I know of for entering into this power sharing pact with the indwelling divinity of the planet.

The power of the earth

It is easy to see the power of the earth in the elements, the wind, the oceans, volcanoes, rushing rivers, earthquakes, thunderstorms etc., but how does this play out on a human scale? You get a feel of this in a telestic session, when the telluric energy of the planet blasts through you. There is an electrical aspect to this power and women are more naturally conductive, and men are more naturally resistant. I would guess that this is physiological, based on ratio of fat and water (conductive) to bone and skin (insulating). This is no accident, of course, and one of the reasons why it is important to have a balance of men and women in telestic sessions. However, the heightened awareness of telestic sessions simply enhances the participants’ perceptions of what is always present, but beyond the normal senses, and trains and refines both the ordinary and non-ordinary senses in the process. It is through the development of the capacity to withstand this power in the telestic session, with full awareness of what is happening in the ordinary senses, that the shaman learns to direct the force in an altered state of consciousness and in ordinary consciousness.

The mirroring attention

How is is it possible to direct the power of the earth? I think that the mysterious functioning of the mirroring attention might be involved. Mysterious does not mean without factual basis. For example the mirror-neuron system, which enables the sensory motor system to learn through imitation – it’s why you instinctively make sucking or chewing noises if you want a baby to eat. The mirror neurons in the baby’s brain respond to the visual stimuli by stimulating the part of the motor cortex in his brain that causes the mouth to move, exactly as if he had initiated the eating process himself. (See: The Mirror-Neuron System, Rizzolatti and Craighero, 2004)

The mirror neuron system doesn’t die off when we become adults. It’s there all the time, silently maintaining the relationship with other life forms and the external environment, while you focus your attention elsewhere. Information is not just received visually or aurally, but via your skin, the chakra system and your gut. I would expect mirror-type neurons to be discovered in other ‘intelligent’ organs, like the heart and gut at some point. All the ‘intelligent’ organs are connected via the vagus nerve (the carnal instrument of the mirroring attention) which modulates the ‘volume’ across the entire system to regulate the biochemical activity in all the organs and systems involved. There is also a similar system in plants.

The mirror neuron system is part of the mirroring attention, that acts an extensive support system enabling you to take action, sometimes complex series of actions without having to make a conscious decision about every stage of that process. For example, have you ever driven somewhere and arrived without having any memory of the journey? That was the mirroring attention, operating through your visual and motor cortices, without you being aware of it. In partnership with the ability to generate spontaneous action, the mirroring attention forms the biological basis for surviving predation in all creatures. However, in human animals, with the capacity to override natural instincts, it is being used to train you to work against your best interests.

The shaman’s mirror

What has this got to do with the role of the warrior priestess, you might ask? Well, there is the curious fact of the shaman’s mirror to consider. Once again, all over the world (but especially in Siberia, Mongolia, China and central Asia) shamans, male and female, were buried with mirrors, of bronze, silver, mixed metals and stone in Mesoamerica. Sometimes, they were sewn into their clothes. The current consensus among the ‘experts’, is that these mirrors were used in healing, to ward off evil spirits and for divination. However, when I consider the status that must have been accorded to some of these warrior priestesses, judging by the riches in their tombs, I have to question what service they provided that was so highly valued? For example, Lady Fu Hau of the Shang dynasty (c. 1250 – 1192 B.C.) was a military general and a high priestess, who led military campaigns against other tribes and was also consulted for ritual and ceremonial matters. She had a lavish tomb, with weapons, bells, mirrors, ritual vessels and cowrie shells. She also had a statue erected in her honour. She was a powerful woman, and one of many, before the Abrahamic religions forced us into hiding and all but destroyed the memory of when we were valued for the power we wielded.

Lady Fu Hau (www.ancient-origins.net)

About two weeks after the telestic session in which the warrior shaman archetype was activated I had a dream in which I was trapped in a hostile environment and didn’t know how to get out and it was dark. I was afraid, but lucid and I knew it was one of those interesting situations, so I summoned Black Jaguar to help me. This was the first time I’d ever called Black Jaguar in a dream. With him at my side I could see in infrared and I kicked off my shoes and we started walking. We communicated telepathically and he asked me where I wanted to go and I didn’t know. So we walked a few steps further and he asked me what I wanted and I thought: fuck, I don’t know that either! He stopped and looked at me and said: there are rules here you know. If you don’t know where you are going or what you want I can’t help you So I went through a list of possibilities in my head to see which one felt right – key, artifact, treasure, book and eventually I came to weapon and that felt right. I told him that I wanted my magical weapon and he asked me what it was and I told him that it was a mirror.

So, I’m drawing a few threads together here and focusing on the mirroring attention because, from the little we know of the functioning of mirroring in humans, it appears to be stronger in women. Women are biologically wired to be more empathetic, in order to bond with their offspring and teach them basic skills, just as men are wired to be less empathetic and to take greater pleasure in revenge. Women’s intuition is biological, due to reduced testosterone in the womb, the trade-off for men is that they get more morbido – the pleasure of killing. But what if the warrior priestesses had learned how to initiate directly into the mirroring attention and orchestrate events to benefit their armies?

In times of peace, the female shaman would most likely focus on healing, nurturing and teaching, with rituals around the crops, water, the seasons etc., but these are not those times. If I had young children now, I’d be teaching them martial arts, how to grow and cook real food, how to take care of themselves in the real world, as opposed to doing things online. Digital natives still need to eat. They also need to know factual history and how to think for themselves. I don’t want to live under communist rule any more than I want to live under Sharia law and the current odds do not favour the white European, most of whom will most likely end up begging their governments (the Jewish communists) to save them from the hoards of ‘peace-loving refugees’ in their communities.

In times of war, and we are at war, the role of the female shaman transitions into the warrior priestess. (The terms priestess, shaman or witch are interchangeable in this context.) This is why the ‘job descriptions’ of the goddesses who give their power to the shaman tend to cover the trilogy of love, war and magic. The roles of male and female warrior shaman are bound to compliment each other, but I still don’t know how this works in practice. The ideal Euro-aboriginal clan would have both.  Personally, I feel driven to hone my instincts and work closely with the men I encounter, who are not yet totally pussified, to help toughen and sharpen them up – in so many ways! It’s impossible to predict how this is all going to pan out, the attacks are coming from so many directions, but it only takes one warrior priestess to recover the skills of our ancestors to change the game.

Never Defeated

Fake viruses

I spent a lot of time last year considering viruses, the herpes virus in particular. This was mostly because of Dean’s basal cell carcinoma and when some one came to visit with psoriasis, I recognised that this was the herpes virus too. I’ve been planning to write a post about this for some time, but something didn’t seem quite right. On the last day of the Kali shift of 2017, the reason for my hesitation became clear.

I had made a fundamental error in that I had assumed that viruses actually existed! This is an easy mistake to make because there is a whole branch of science dedicated to the study of viruses – virology – and thousands of science papers published on the many different viruses. There is a significant body of research that links some kinds of cancer with viruses and others with fungus. I decided to focus on the herpes virus, because Dean had a tendency to get cold sores and it seemed logical to consider that the herpes virus might be involved in his basal cell carcinoma. I won’t bother you with the details of my research here, regarding how the virus hides in the nervous system etc. because it seems likely that most of this research was fraudulent, or erroneous at best. However, I didn’t know this at the time and ploughed on.

In my research, I looked for images and some of the images I found looked very beautiful and some looked archontic, but I couldn’t find any sources for any of them. I don’t post anything if I can’t find a source for it, even though I don’t always reference the sources. Additionally, there is no agreed definition of what a virus is; they are sometimes described as tiny parasites, cells or non-living cells or particles, but all reports seem to agree that they are amazingly efficient.

“A virus is a small parasite that cannot reproduce by itself. Once it infects a susceptible cell, however, a virus can direct the cell machinery to produce more viruses. Most viruses have either RNA or DNA as their genetic material. The nucleic acid may be single- or double-stranded. The entire infectious virus particle, called a virion, consists of the nucleic acid and an outer shell of protein. The simplest viruses contain only enough RNA or DNA to encode four proteins. The most complex can encode 100 – 200 proteins.

 

The study of plant viruses inspired some of the first experiments in molecular biology. In 1935, Wendell Stanley purified and partly crystallized tobacco mosaic virus (TMV); other plant viruses were crystallized soon thereafter. Pure proteins had been crystallized only a short time before Stanley’s work, and it was considered very surprising at the time that a replicating organism could be crystallized.”

 

Molecular Cell Biology. 4th edition. Section 6.3 Viruses: Structure, Function, and Uses

I decided to go with the working hypothesis that viruses had to have been created by the Planetary Animal Mother and that therefor they must have a purpose that supports life, as opposed to the destructive function that is more often discussed. I found studies describing how DNA replication and repair mechanisms originated in viruses and that viruses might even have played a critical role in the origin of DNA. (Origin and Evolution of DNA and DNA Replication Machineries, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK6360/) I also found references to ‘old viruses’ and ‘modern viruses’ and questioned whether the beautiful looking viruses were original and the modern viruses archontic copies. With no source references it was impossible to tell, yet people were being affected by some kind of illness.

On June 15 2016, when the moon was at its apogee and conjunct Cambalia, the alchemist’s star, I guided a shamanic realignment session with three other participants. The intention was to restore the herpes virus to its correct function. The session was extraordinarily intense and I felt Tantra Mother take over my immune system as her teaching tool within my body and correct some faulty circuits and connections. The results of the session were immediately apparent. I had a troublesome mole drop off, Dean broke out in a cold sore (Herpes Simplex 1) the very next day and the psoriasis improved for the second participant. The third participant went back to England and broke up from a toxic relationship, moved house and got a new job within three weeks. Dean’s basal cell carcinoma also healed, but then returned after a few weeks. This was a sure indication that, although I was on the right track, something was not quite right about the process or the syntax. I am clear now that the process is correct, but the specific intention I set was erroneous because all viruses are fake.

The ‘candy fetus’ dream

On the last night of the Kali shift of 2017, I was awake in the night and asked: what is a virus? In the wee hours I fell back asleep and dreamed that I was in some sort of hostel type building with several other people in a shabby dining room. There was a large fridge in the room and I opened it to get a drink and took out a carton of UHT milk, which slipped out of my hand and spilled all over the floor.

Milk in a dream often signifies the Organic Light, but UHT milk is fake, so I was on my guard. I cleared the spilt milk and sat on a wooden bench next to a pale-skinned blonde woman. She had a white mobile phone in her right hand and she turned to me and asked, “Are you running the candy fetus programme?” I thought she was talking about an app on her phone and I told her that I only had the most basic phone available and only used it for calls and texting and that I wasn’t ‘running’ any programmes like that at all. “Oh OK. Can I scan you?” she said. I thought she was going to use her phone and I cautiously agreed, but then she put her forehead right against mine and I felt her try and scan me with her mind. I wasn’t about to have any of that and my auric egg, powered up, like tall white feathers of light coming out of the top of my head and down my back to the floor. She stepped back sharply and said, “No – you’re clear.” Then I woke up.

This was what I call a significant dream, because of the milk cue, the timing (in the pre-dawn gateway period, just after I had asked a question) and the content. Milk, white animals and pale-skinned people in a dream are often a sign of interaction with the Aeonic Mother, but the fakeness and technology seemed to be indicating some sort of trickery – but ‘candy fetus.’ What did that have to do with viruses? As I recounted the dream to Dean the next morning, ‘candy fetus’ became ‘can defeat us’. Was I running the ‘can defeat us’ programme? No, I was clear.

I realised in that moment that the ‘can defeat us’ programme is a mental implant, a spell. It has many permutations, but in this context the specific spell was: a virus can defeat us. The trickery was that there is no such thing as a virus. It is a spell, cast on children by magicians in white coats, who don’t even know what they are doing (for now). Thereafter, for the rest of their lives, whenever those children hear ‘virus’ they feel defeat, produce stress hormones and their immune systems and resistance go down. I asked for confirmation of that and as I looked out of the window, a large hawk, was flying just over the trees at the end of the garden. Suddenly, a much smaller hawk flew into view fast, from the east, over the house and right at the big hawk, forcing it to change direction. A direct hit.

But that was not all. As soon as I sat down at my computer to write this up, I saw this article:

“In a recent ruling, judges at the German Federal Supreme Court (BGH) confirmed that the measles virus does not exist. Furthermore, there is not a single scientific study in the world which could prove the existence of the virus in any scientific literature. This raises the question of what was actually injected into millions over the past few decades.

Not a single scientist, immunologist, infectious disease specialist or medical doctor has ever been able to establish a scientific foundation, not only for the vaccination of measles but any vaccination for infants, pregnant women, the elderly and even many adult subgroups.”

The Virus Scam

I did a bit more research on the good Dr Lanka, a trained virologist who discovered the virus scam and dedicated his career to exposing it. He considers measles to be a psychosomatic disease, caused by traumatic separation. He offered €100,000 to anyone who could prove the measles virus existed and another German doctor, Dr David Bardens took up the challenge and compiled evidence from medical journals to prove his case. Dr Lanka rejected the evidence and Dr Bardens sued for his 100k.  The lower German court ruled in favour of Dr Bardens and ordered Dr Lanka to pay the €100k. Dr Lanka, however, stuck to his guns and appealed to the German Federal Supreme Court, the highest court for private matters in Germany, and won. The five court-appointed experts found that none of the six publications presented at the first trial contained scientific proof of the alleged measles virus.

“In the trial, the results of research into so-called genetic fingerprints of alleged measles virus have been introduced. Two recognised laboratories, including the world’s largest and leading genetic Institute, arrived at exactly the same results independently. The results prove that the authors of the six publications in the measles virus case were wrong, and as a direct result all measles virologists are still wrong today: They have misinterpreted ordinary constituents of cells as part of the suspected measles virus.

 

Because of this error, during decades of consensus building process, normal cell constituents were mentally assembled into a model of a measles virus. To this day, an actual structure that corresponds to this model has been found neither in a human, nor in an animal. With the results of the genetic tests, all thesis of existence of measles virus has been scientifically disproved.”

 

http://anonhq.com/anti-vaxxer-biologist-stefan-lanka-bets-100k-measles-isnt-virus-wins-german-federal-supreme-court/

This is not confined to measles.  According to Dr Lanka:

“Indeed, in the entire scientific literature there´s not even one publication, where for “viruses in the medicine” the fulfillment of Koch´s first postulate is even claimed. That means, that there is no proof that from humans with certain diseases the viruses – which are held responsible for these diseases – have been isolated. Nevertheless, this is precisely what they publicly claim”

From http://neue-medizin.com/lanka2.htm

How many virologists, scientists, journalists and pharmaceutical companies are involved in this monumental scam? How many more people choose to remain ignorant about what they are jabbing into their kids?  It’s just upgraded snake oil, William Rockefeller must be chuckling in his grave.

Deleting the ‘can defeat us’ programme

The CDU programme is a spell that tricks your brain into using your faculties against you. It is implanted at an early age by parents, doctors, teachers and anyone who claimed authority over you. The programme was implanted in many different files over time and delivered by people who pretended to help you, but actually induced fear and trauma to destroy your ability to get to know your self and what you are capable of. Whether they knew what they were doing or not is irrelevant.

For example, vaccines make you fear disease and compromise your immune system making it harder to deal with the root causes of disease, poverty, exploitation and ignorance. The school system punishes non-compliance and legitimizes authority relentlessly, whilst encouraging all manner of character weakening deviances in order to create willing slaves. Then you work until you drop, imprisoned by the fear of poverty and sedated with addictions and Chinese gadgets. And for those of you who make it through the labyrinth with enough of your Goddess given faculties intact to question: who has done this to you? Bingo! If you try and do anything about it you run into the ‘Can Defeat Us Programme’ from your own life experience, backed up by centuries of talmudic magic to terrify you into submission. They are omnipotent and you are weak and defenceless, not even human.

The CDU programme puts you under a spell by creating the false sense that if you challenge the system and its agents in any way, you will be destroyed, annulled, rendered non-existent because ‘those in charge’ can defeat you. At a physiological level, when you encounter a situation that triggers a CDU file, your body generates the same stress hormones as it did the first time around. For example, the extreme stress of being vaccinated as a child and told that ‘it is good for you’ implants the command that you are weak and that a virus can seriously harm you, so that as an adult your body recreates those emotions when you think you have a virus. The stress hormones generated by the thought that the virus will harm you impede your immune system and other systems working to get your body back into balance and the symptoms of recovery, runny nose, fatigue etc. are mistaken for the non-existent virus, and you barely escaped death. This process works in exactly the same way for all the other CDU files that stop you striving for goals and challenging the system; they are triggered whenever you interact with so-called authorities, in working environments or even in social situations if people try and pull rank. It is possible to override the programme and push through the situation, but that approach takes up a lot of emotional and physical energy for an uncertain benefit. So, most people avoid these situations and the status quo is maintained. The CDU programme is very effective.

But, what if these files could be deleted?

In kinesiology, the files of the CDU programme are referred to as Wernicke’s Commands as they are stored in the Wernickes area of the brain, which is involved in language comprehension. There is a specific correction process for deleting Wernickes commands, discovered by Australian kinesiologist David Bridgman in 1996. The key is to understand that negative self-criticism or limiting self-beliefs, usually worded as: I’m not good enough, I can’t do that, I’ll never be happy, healthy, wealthy etc. are the direct result of having been told as a child: you are no good, you can’t do that, you are miserable, you are hopeless etc. You have to use the ‘you’ version of the implanted command in order to delete it. Any kinesiologist should be able to help you delete Wernicke’s commands, but if you don’t want to go to a kinesiologist, you can get good results with the help of a friend, but you will probably have to find the commands without muscle testing.

The correction process for Wernickes commands from Stephanie Relfe can be found here: http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/marte/esp_marte_6c.htm

The CDU programme is a spell, a series of limiting commands implanted in your mind by despicable tricksters and their accomplices.  Once you delete the files you can never be defeated, even in death.

Kali’s Tongue

Sometimes, I have to write it down just to get the thoughts out of my head, so I can move on. This is one of those posts, no great claims of insight – just an making space.

This shift, in the quiet moments of absorption in the landscape, or getting on with something around the house that doesn’t require much thought, Kali has been sticking Her tongue in my face. Most religious iconography leaves me cold, but this image woke me up in the wee hours today with a shock of realization that this is not ancient history or fabulation, but a depiction of what is about to happen.

Kali, the most fearsome force of Nature – Shakti – imaginable, is going to mop up the hoards of ignorant mindlessly breeding clones with her lolling tongue and she is going to relish ever minute of it. This is not an external force, as you are part of Nature. Whether male or female Nature is in you, just as you are in Nature.

I had the vivid memory of how I used to be consumed with mindless, uncontrollable rage, on occasion. I smashed things and people and got smashed back many times. I couldn’t handle the rage and I didn’t like the feeling of it owning me. It took me years to ‘control’ what I considered to be an ugly, undesirable part of my character. Ultimately, the breakthrough was nothing more than recognizing the source of my rage – the destructive force of the Planetary Animal Mother – and it is my rage too. It is always both/and rather than either/or.

In the classical image Shiva represents the act of recognition and surrender to this necessarily destructive force of Nature. And the will, the strength of character that enables you to know yourself in any situation, is also in each of us. There is no shame on Kali’s clearing up the mess and no desperation to stop her from Shiva. Why should she be ashamed of ridding the world of self-replicating demons? Who or what is he supposed to be trying to save? He just sees her untamed awesomeness and throws himself on the ground – stamp on me too baby – and she does and they both enjoy the hell of it, and the mood passes.

More and more people today are feeling the force of Kali raging through them, but they don’t know it’s source and neither do they know themselves – no Shiva. No Thelete, in the language of the Sophianic Vision Story. This is what you are seeing in the rabid, irrational and delusional leftist mobs who cannot tolerate anyone who disagrees with their ignorant beliefs, even as they contradict themselves with every word. Kali’s destructive force will destroy them from within, but they will try to take you down with them. The best thing to do is keep out of the way.

Kalikas, devotees of Kali, learn how to handle her rage and how to aim it, because they know its source, and their own origins too.  This is the best protection you can have.

Our Cob House

Growing up in London, I never dreamed that I would be able to build our own house.  I always wanted to and used to draw pictures of houses and design little towns when I was a kid, but London is just too expensive for that to have ever become a reality there.  It’s also not the kind of place for my dream house.  My dream house had to come from the land.  It had to be made of natural materials and I really didn’t want neighbours.

We bought this place in March 2013.  No one had lived here for many years and the old house was falling down, which was just what we wanted.  The unpaved access road, which was a river when we first saw the house, kept other prospective buyers away.  It was daunting at first.  We don’t have any building skills, we don’t know the rules here and our Spanish is limited but we decided to go for it. Our plan was to build an eco-house, using local, natural materials and built by a true craftsman, Mateu Ortoneda.  In part, this was a reaction to living in London and the brutal ugliness of the city – yes, parts of London are beautiful and we enjoyed living there for many years, but it is mostly grey, concrete and kebab shop signs. I craved natural beauty, organic lines and I wanted to live in a house that felt as though it was part of the land, rather than an assault on it.

It took us a while to find architects and a builder, but if we’d have tried to do it all ourselves we would still be looking at a pile of rubble, and we started building in August 2014 and we moved in June 2016.  It was then down to us to install the kitchen and finish the bathrooms, which we completed in January 2017.   Of course, there are still finishing touches to be made, but as people around here say: when you finish your house, you die!

The house is mostly cob, made from clay dug from our land, straw from our land and local sand.  Apart from the stone work and slate roof on the stone part of the house, all the work was done by one man, Mateu, with occasional labouring help.  We have restored part of the house in original stone and kept to the original footprint (more or less).  The shape is the same as the original house, but the style is totally original. Everything has been made by hand on site, including all the beams, pillars and roof slates, all from local materials.

Not only is the house incredibly beautiful and unique, but there is something very special about seeing it grow out of the ground at a very human scale and pace.  This is a large house and it would have been much quicker to build a smaller one, but we always have visitors through the summer, so we went as large as our budget would allow.  Mateu says that houses should be built to the natural scale that emerges from two men working together.  I think he’s right on that because this creates proportions that feel right and generate a sense of well-being.  In an ideal world, we would have local builders working with local materials as valued and respected craftsmen, creating homes that enhance the lives of their residents and beautify the natural environment.

We also went off-grid in June, when we moved in.  Our original plan was to have solar energy with a grid tie-in.  However, new laws in Spain make it mandatory for all grid customers to have smart meters by 2018 and grid customers with solar systems are to be penalised – it is more expensive to have solar and grid than to have solar alone, with huge fines for non-compliance.  We didn’t build a healthy, ecological house to have our brains fried by a smart meter, so we had no choice but to find another way.  It was a great decision.  Much of the information on the internet is designed to put people off, to make you think that you will have to lead a primitive life and this is just not true, in our experience.

I would say that the places where building a house like this is not affordable to sane, intelligent people with some wherewithal about them, is probably not the kind of place those people would want to live anyway.  And, of course, not everyone would want to live in this kind of house either, but the curious thing is that I didn’t know that this was what I wanted either, until we moved here.  The biggest shift and the biggest effort was in getting out of our old lives in London, it was like pulling ourselves out of quicksand.  After that, it was a breeze, with a few mighty gusts to deal with now and then.  The cabal puts a lot of effort into making it seem as though it is impossible for you to follow your dream and, as the result, most people don’t have a dream.  Even fewer go on to realize that, in reality, the dream is dreaming them.  Once you realize that – well, that’s for another post.

A Dose of Vitriol

Vitriol

On the first day of this Kurukulla shift of 2016, I slipped on a log and fell, banged my head hard and winded myself. This sort of thing has happened before, it used to happen quite often on the first day of a new shift; I’d fall, or cut myself, or get stung by wasps. Bhairavi is my Guardian and She dishes out tough love with a heavy hand, but nothing like this has happened for a while. Was I not paying attention? Had I missed something? The shift was very difficult to read. When I spoke with John about it, he was also finding the shift inscrutable. He said he had the urge to go back to basics and follow the rolling out of the shift according to the Fibonacci sequence.

John and I also discussed ‘Pizzagate’, briefly. We agreed that all the evidence was circumstantial and that no house-hold name is likely to be arrested anytime soon, even though the worldwide pedo network is as active as ever. Nonetheless, I couldn’t stop thinking about the vile mess of ‘spirit-cooking’, ritualistic abuse and the millions of children that go missing each year, with no hard evidence – bodies – ever found. Surely, in this Kurukulla shift, something would break and a course of action would become clear.

I began dreaming about worms and woke up with the distinct smell of sulphur in my nostrils. I always follow my dreams, so Dean and I began taking organic sulphur – MSM. I initially thought this was about parasites, and to some extent it is.

On day eight of the shift, the well-known alchemical image of the Green Lion Devouring the Sun came into my mind and when I looked it up, this was the first version I came to. What jumped out at me was that the two balls on the tail looked like kidneys. On that same day tragedy struck and Nikita, John’s beloved feline companion, died of kidney failure.

Synchronicitous events cue your attention and what you do with the clues depends on your disposition and motive. I use them as pointers, to explore whatever subject I happen to be most deeply involved with at the time. Sulphur, parasites, kidneys, photosynthesis and the worldwide pedocite network? Connections did not jump out at me. So I printed out the image of the Green Lion to engage the second attention and started reading up on sulphur and the kidneys (first attention). What resulted was not transception, ie pure Dakini Intel, but the kind of human-level illumination that occurs when you observe the practices of Planetary Tantra and apply yourself accordingly.

So in this post is about what I’m learning this shift and, as such, a demonstration of how Planetary Tantra guides my process of discovery.

Sulphur in the Body

Sulphur brings to mind a foul-smelling, yellow powder and school experiments with bunsen burners. I have never considered its nutritional value, or its function as a detoxifier, yet sulphur is the third most abundant mineral in the human body. It is found in every cell in the human body and is involved in a wide range of biochemical functions, such as:

  • Cellular energy production / metabolism.
    Maintaining blood glucose levels.
  • Protects nerve tissue – synthesizes neurotransmitters, improves memory and dampens excessive firing.
  • Antioxidant protection – scavenges or neutralizes free radicals and recycles oxidized antioxidan
  • Blood flow – produces both blood clotting factors as well as anticoagulants.
  • Joint Health – production of glycosaminoglycans (GAGS), chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid.
  • Detoxification – by means of conjugation and chelation.
  • Regulation of DNA replication and transcription.
  • Digestion – production of hydrochloric acid.
  • Supports healthy lipoprotein balance – cholesterol, LDL, and HDL.
  • Adrenal gland support and hormone production – cortisol, aldosterone, testosterone, etc.
  • Proper immune response – enhancing proliferation of lymphocytes, cytotoxic T cells and NK cells.
  • Lungs – protects against mucous formation in lungs.
  • Eyes – decreases cataract development.
  • Formation of skin, hair and nails.

Source: Sulfur Part II: Sulfur and Sulfur Compounds in the Human Body by Mark J. Donohue

Sulphur has been consistently overlooked as an essential nutrient and no one knows how much we need on a daily basis.

“Sulfur, with an atomic number of 16, is known to bond with almost every other mineral.  Sulfur has demonstrated its ability to detoxify heavy metals in conjunction with the transport of oxygen across the cell membrane, thus allowing regeneration.  Sulfur is also the key player as a precursor for the utilization of amino acids, the body’s building blocks.  Of all of the amino acids, some 70 percent are sulfur-based.”

From the Sulfur Study

We do not store sulphur in the body, except for a minute amount in keratin found in hair, nails and cartilage so it must be supplied daily to be effective. Sulphur is passed every 12 hours after being ingested, making our humanure an excellent source of sulphur for the garden! We all need a constant supply of sulphur for cellular regeneration, but we do not know how much we need. One constant is the Sulphur-Nitrogen ratio, which is 1:14 in all mammals, which seems to be very important.  (See this study on the relationship between nitrogen and sulphur for more information.)

Nitrogen constitutes 78% by volume of the earth’s atmosphere, but is not available to humans unless it is ‘fixed’ into a form that can be consumed. We can’t breathe nitrogen, although our bodies need it for the amino acids that make up the protein building blocks for skin, hair, muscles etc. The nucleic acid DNA, which makes up your genes, and RNA, which is involved in protein synthesis contains nitrogen, as do red blood cells. Nitrogen is essential to life, yet too much can be harmful. Nitrogen (with oxygen) naturally transforms into nitrates, and ingested nitrates are transformed into nitrites in the body’s digestive system. These nitrites oxidize iron in the hemoglobin, forming methemoglobin, which can interfere with the blood’s ability to transport oxygen to individual cells.

Most of us are probably starved of oxygen, a major factor in cancer, pain, dementia and other diseases because we get too little sulphur, due to mineral depletion in our soils and food. The sulphur is essential to transport oxygen into cells, where it binds to toxins (conjugates) and clears them out – it literally takes out the trash. Too much nitrogen inhibits the blood’s ability to oxygenate cells and I’m guessing that, for most of us, our bodies are having to work too hard on essential functions to maintain the sulphur nitrogen ratio, leaving no sulphur available for regeneration.

In the three weeks or so that we’ve been taking organic sulphur in water I’ve noticed that my thinking has become much clearer and I have more energy and motivation. Initially I had very bad dreams, non-lucid nightmares, such as I haven’t had since I was a child. I think this was my sleeping mind observing the trash being taken out. I also noticed a few joint aches and a mild headache, which lasted for a few days only. I am also eating less.  One study has connected obesity with sulphur deficiency, as well as heart disease and Alzheimers: Weston A. Price: Sulfur deficiency

Here is a reference to another, large-scale study:

“The Organic Sulfur Study of the Cellular Matrix is studying the effects of reintroducing such a bio- available sulfur, we call Organic Sulfur, back into our diet through the supplement we call Organic Sulfur

At this time there are 70,000 people in 18 countries in the study that have or are taking this bio-avalible form of sulfur, Organic Sulfur, Through the feedback from the study we have documented significant healing sometimes deemed unusual by the medical profession , It is as if the reintroduction of Organic Sulfur back in the cells has kick started the natural regenerative capacities of the body. The information the study receives from its members shows how amazing the regenerative capacities of the body can be.”

Sulphur in Soil and Food

Elemental sulphur is produced by volcanic activity in the atmosphere and organic sulphur is produced by the same volcanic activity in sea water. The salt in sea water allows the sulphur to be released directly into the water, which is the beginning of the sulphur cycle for all living organisms. Sulphur’s bio-availability is effected by temperature and by the ease with which it bonds with most of the other elements. There is a sulfate, sulfite or sulfide of most of the other elements and this is the source of many compounds known as minerals.

Although many foods contain sulphur most of us are deficient because modern farming destroyed the sulphur cycle. Oil-based fertilizers used world wide, that were developed by Prescott Bush and Nelson Rockefeller, destroy sulphur through heat treatment and the free sulphur in rainwater binds to the other minerals in the fertilizer so that it is not available to plants either. Since 1954, when chemical fertilizers were mandated in the US, epidemiological studies show an increase in cancer and related diseases of up to 4,000%. In contrast with Finland, where chemical fertilizers were banned in 1985, due to concerns about the cadmium content, disease has now fallen back to 10% of the 1985 levels and is still dropping. (Finland also has the best education system in the world, because a healthy society values educating its children.) Icelanders’ low rates of depression, obesity, diabetes and heart disease is also attributed to the high sulphur content of their volcanic soil.

Sulphur content of soil is not generally measured, sulphur levels in food are not studied and sulphur deficiency is not generally considered as a contributing factor to disease by the medical profession.

This is not limited to the US. I found a reference to this study in the UK:

“The survey, which began in 2014 across farms in Shropshire and Herefordshire, showed only 13 per cent of all crops sampled had a result in the normal range, all others were low or slightly low.

The 2015 samples collected showed 55 per cent of crops had low sulphur levels, triggering a high nitrogen: sulphur ratio content of 16: 1 or above.

Andrew Goodinson, of Hutchinsons, says: “A reading of 18:1 would mean a low sulphur status and the need for sulphur treatment for the next crop.”

Sulphur depletion is largely down to reduced atmospheric deposition, however, last season, high yielding crops are likely to have depleted soil resources even further.”

Alchemical Sulphur

In the next synchronicitous event of this shift, I opened John’s Great Work, A Recreation of the Alchemical Mystery, to where I’d left off reading previously and came to this in the very next section:

The image below is called the Key of Basil Valentine, that reveals a secret in its seven sections:

Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occultim Lapidem

= VITRIOL

VISIT THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH AND THERE BY PURIFICATION YOU WILL DISCOVER THE OCCULT STONE

VITRIOL
VITRIOL

“So, what is Vitriol? The riddle suggests that it’s nothing other than the Stone, but the Secret Stone, Occult Stone (Occultum Lapidem), no less. This reminds us of the paradox of the Stone we encountered in Part One of the Course, the Formation Stage of the Work. There we learned how the Stone is used from the outset, even though it is considered to be the goal of the Work; and how it is found everywhere though disfavoured, ridiculed and abused by all………But this Stone, as illustrated in Maier’s Atalanta Fugiens 1617 [illustration depicted in the Course], cannot be the hidden Stone of the Key. No, the Stone at the beginning of the Work is one thing, but the secret of Vitriol refers to something only to be discovered at the conclusion of the Work. Something to be found in the innermost regions of the Earth, Terra. Certainly, we cannot discount the possibility that the actual core of the planet may be meant here – but this interpretation can be left aside for a more symbolic one, consistent with one of our main themes. We know that the alchemists as physicists in their own right, saw how the transformation of the Earth depends upon the catalytic power of the human mass, the unique materiality condensed within our skins; namely our Essense. So this reference to the interior of Terra can be taken to mean the innermost region of the Human Essense, the dose of terrestrial materiality we each incarnate.

What, then, is the innermost part of our Essense (Interiora Terrae)? No mystery about this, really, though we have not had occasion to examine it until now. Within your skin is your interior mass and within this embedded in it, is your skeleton. In the bone structure within your Essense you have the evidence of the penetration of Satanic forces in your being. Traditionally the skeleton is the symbol of Death. Likewise, Ahriman or Satan, the Mythical Being who wastes and consumes the Human Essense, is the Grim Reaper of the Tarot. The bone-structure is that part of your Essense that has already been claimed by Ahriman, the evidence of the infiltration of the Satanic into your constitution.

True enough, but it does not stop there, for with the skeleton you are still not at the innermost region. Within your Essense is your skeleton and within your skeleton is your marrow. The marrow is the innermost. The marrow is the Vitriol.

To conventional, literal-minded science, “vitriol” is nothing but an archaic name for sulphur, which happens to be the Satanic substance par excellence. Where Satan is, you smell burning sulphur. Every genuine alchemist will sometime along the way have the uncanny experience of smelling sulphur without being able to tell where the smell comes from: this indicates a definite, irreversible breakthrough in the Work. It is a maddening, but auspicious event.”

John Lamb Lash, A Recreation of the Alchemical Mystery, 1982-84

I mentioned my investigations to John and he commented as follows:

The usual translation of the VITRIOL anagram in the sigil of Basil Valentine is “Visit the interior of the earth and there you will find the hidden stone.” But this translation appears to disregard the central term, at the apex of the design, RECTIFICANDO: “I correct” in Latin.”

So, now I have an additional reading of the sigil, that goes like this:

I correct. (To) discover the occult stone, visit the interior of the earth.”

When John first created the Course in Alchemy, in the late 70s and early 80s, he had not yet compiled the Fallen Goddess Scenario, or begun writing Not in His Image.  At that time he translated ‘rectificando’ as ‘purification’, which made contextual sense then. With the compilation of the more detailed map of Correction, the literal translation of ‘rectificando’ has new relevance and the acronym VITRIOL reveals a multi-leveled meaning. The vitriol of our marrow creates stem cells, the biological source of our life and regenerative capacities, but we have been conditioned into demonizing its corrective charge.  The DNA in stem cells is essentially fluid, in a pre-responsive state to epigenetic stimuli.  Is undifferentiated DNA the ‘occult stone’?

But are we talking here about the interior of the earth, or the interior of the human body? Since our telestic session in November 2015, in which we gave the command to activate the extinction protocols for A10, it has become increasingly clear that the lines of personal and transpersonal experience have converged; every experience is simultaneously personal and transpersonal. This feels like a massive realignment in accordance with the Hermetic principle: As above, so below; as below so above. As I write this, there is renewed interest in the Antarctic region and what lies at the centre of the earth. I’ve been dreaming about Antartica too, although I have to put aside any investigation on that for a later date. My point here is that I have been taking organic sulphur since the beginning of this shift and my perception of BOTH what is happening in the interior of my body AND the interior of the earth is heightened. Everything is material.

As I look into the interior of my body, I remember an unexpected experience from my past. One day, as a child of 9 or 10, I had a ‘school dinner’ for some reason. This wasn’t usual. We lived only a five minute walk from my primary school and I usually went home for lunch, but on this rare occasion I didn’t. I can’t remember what the main course was, but the dessert was semolina pudding and I hate semolina. I told the teacher on dinner duty that I hated semolina and didn’t want to eat it and she said that I had to eat it and if I didn’t I couldn’t go out to play. I remember hating the semolina, hating the teacher and forcing it down. I took my plate back to the serving area when finished, as we were required to do and walked back down the aisle past the teachers table to go out and play. Just as I got to the teacher’s table the hate welled up in me and I threw up my semolina pudding and my lunch right at their feet. Now why would that memory come back to me as I focus on sulphur? The body never lies. I think that the mineral analog to hate is sulphur; everything is material, after all.

Hate has been demonized, literally and now it is being outlawed. There is nothing wrong, nasty, satanic or negative about hate. It is simply the purest expression of your Essense that expects absolutely nothing of anyone else. Hate is crystalline, non-negotiable and squeezed out, from the deepest part of you, the marrow in your bones; ex-PRESSED through your very bones into the world. It sets your personal boundaries. Was I immoral or hateful because I expressed my hate for semolina pudding as a child? I don’t think so, but my body took it literally and purged me of what I hated. Am I hateful now, because I hate pedos, cruelty, anyone who tells me how to live my life and especially people who hide their cowardice behind fake love and semolina pudding (still)? Perhaps. But I’m also playful, joyful, bountiful and many other things besides.

In completion with Kurukulla it is clear to me that it’s time to break the taboo on hate. If you don’t hate something, many things about the world at large, you are either already brain dead or you probably need to take more sulphur. At the most basic physiological level, sulphur helps your body clear out accumulated toxins so you can function better and see the world more clearly, it helps you regenerate with with the clear pure hate of the Luminous Child that you can experience once again without guilt.  Sulphur makes your cell membranes supple and slippery so that the parasites can’t get their hooks into you, literally.

Broccoli Medicine

Broccoli medicine

Broccoli is a star in our garden. I sowed seeds of several different types, purple sprouting, green sprouting and the large headed variety – the purple sprouting is the most prolific and easy going by far. It’s been tough love for the garden. The soil got compacted when we cut down the pine trees to make the garden, we’ve had two years of summer drought with no irrigation. The first seeds were broadcast in seed balls, in the autumn of 2014. I don’t recommend this method as the seedlings were impossible to find and we unknowingly trampled over most of them! I planted out more, grown from seed last spring and we had a seemingly endless supply this year and much of it has self-seeded or grown back from the stalks that I left in the ground. (The broccoli experience has caused me to revise my expectations of permaculture, more on this here: Gaian Permaculture.)

Purple sprouting broccoli
Purple sprouting broccoli

Back to the broccoli. It’s a cruciferous vegetable belonging to the Brassica genus, named because they have flowers with four petals arranged to resemble a cross. Other cruciferous vegetables include: Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, bok choy, collard greens, kale, red and green cabbage, chard, turnip greens, arugula, mustard greens, savoy cabbage, Chinese cabbage, radish, horseradish, turnip and swedes. All these vegetables are nutritionally dense and increase detoxification from carcinogenic chemicals, prevent some precancerous damage to DNA and in some cases stimulate apoptosis. Apoptosis is a natural process of programmed cell death, which causes cells that are not required by the organism to self-destruct.

Cruciferous vegetables contain many potent phytonutrients and the glucosinolate compounds. In the body, glucosinolates break down into numerous other compounds such as indoles and isothiocyanates. Of the isothiocyanates, sulforaphane has been most studied. GreenMedInfo lists over 270 abstracts on sulforaphane research

Broccoli has more glucosinolate compounds than other cruciferous vegetables and over 80 phytonutritional compounds and 3-day old broccoli sprouts are said to be 50 times more nutritionally dense than mature broccoli. Studies have consistently shown that people who consume the most cruciferous vegetables, around 1kg a week, are less likely to get many types of cancer.

However, broccoli does not provide universal protection from all cancers and not all broccoli is not equal anyway, depending on where and how it is grown, freshness etc. There is a good reason why you can’t eat pounds and pounds of broccoli. According to The Weston A. Price Foundation, “When raw crucifers are chewed, or when microwaved and steamed crucifers are digested by intestinal bacteria, they release substances called goitrogens that increase the need for iodine when consumed in small amounts and can damage the thyroid gland when consumed in large amounts.”

Poison is in everything, and no thing is without poison. The dosage makes it either a poison or a remedy.” Paracelsus.

Broccoli for basal cell carcinoma

As I mentioned before in this post, Dean has a recurring basal cell carcinoma (BCC). We know that’s what it is, because he had one cut out before we left London. He also had a parotidectomy (on the same side) to remove a cancerous parotid gland and radiotherapy, because he was bullied into it by the doctors and we didn’t know better at the time. Since then (2004), the cancer industry has been exposed as fraudulent and evidence of natural cures and lifestyle factors have become more widely available. My personal view on the medical profession is that they are very good for emergencies and structural damage, but worse than useless when it comes to most ‘diseases’. I think they cause more disease than they cure and that the system is so corrupt that the only choice with a non-life threatening condition is to work out how to heal yourself.

I first wrote about this in 2015, when we used an aubergine and apple cider vinegar paste on the sore. It worked for a while and I know several people who have had good results with this remedy, but it never quite eradicated the sore completely. Neither did sodium bicarbonate, nor turmeric. It took me a while to recognise that taking an allopathic approach with natural medicine is still just addressing the symptoms. Cancer is a label used in reference to many symptoms, for which the common denominator is some kind of cellular dysfunction. Just to be clear here, I’m not looking for a cure for cancer; my aim is to help Dean bring his cellular metabolism back into balance, which will be evidenced by the disappearance of the BCC. The fact of it is that no one can ever cure cancer as it is not a disease, which is why it is not transmittable – nobody ‘catches cancer’ – it is always just a symptom, caused by an underlying problem, or series of problems. This is the biggest con of the cancer industry, that it is actually treating a disease!

Dean is strong, a rapid healer, healthy in mind and body, happy and not stressed – so what could could be causing the cellular dysfunction? I disagree with the view that BCC is caused by sun exposure. I think that they tend to appear in the forties because of less regular sun exposure, like the kind you used to get from playing outside as a kid in all weathers or you would get from working outside. We are not designed to live and work in buildings our entire lives. If sun exposure is a factor in BCC, then vitamin D is a factor too.

In fact, vitamin D is not a vitamin. It is a type of hormone that regulates cell growth, modulates the immune system and helps maintain blood pressure and is produced in a biochemical reaction in the skin, kidneys and probably elsewhere in the body through sun exposure, ie photosynthesis. You cannot get sufficient ‘vitamin D’ through food or supplements, sun exposure is essential. Pale skinned people are very efficient at generating vitamin D through sun exposure; we don’t need much and have an inbuilt monitor for signaling sufficient exposure – our skin turns pink – isn’t that amazing? Sunscreen, most of which is carcinogenic, inhibits photosynthesis and vitamin D production. Dark skinned people need ten times as much exposure to generate the same amount of vitamin D. As Dean’s genetic heritage is Native American and Norwegian, the required levels of sun exposure for optimum vitamin D production would have been very different for his ancestors in their native environments. I suspect that this has created a particular sensitivity that we need to address.

A key factor in the vitamin D process are vitamin D receptors. A specific gene called the VDR (vitamin D receptor) gene codes for this receptor, but sick and unhealthy cells express less of the VDR gene, meaning that they are unable to accept and use vitamin D. Supplementing with more vitamin D won’t help these sick cells. Without a receptor site, vitamin D has nowhere to go, which brings me back to broccoli. Research has shown that the sulforaphane in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables increases the expression of the VDR gene, so that more of the vitamin D that the body produces can be used. The one study I found on links between vitamin D and BCC found elevated levels of vitamin D enzymes and proteins in the cancerous tissue, Link between vitamin D and basal cell carcinoma probed: Study sheds light on development of most common form of skin cancer The study drew no conclusions as to whether the increase in vitamin D was causative or curative, but as the body uses vitamin D to regulate cell growth and modulate the immune system, it seems fairly obvious why it would be present in cancerous tissue!

Another study provides graphic evidence of the effectiveness of broccoli on BCC and explains how to use it. The NZ Journal of Natural Medicine: A Simple, Natural Topical Treatment for Basal Cell Carcinoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Maybe Others, by By Dr. J. Rozencwajg, Dean began using fresh broccoli florets, mashed up in a pestle and mortar and taped onto the sore when he’s at home and the BCC already shrunk considerably, after just a few days.

(He is also taking a tincture of Datura Stramonium and St John’s Wort.  This is because the herpes virus (HPV1) is an underlying factor here.   This virus hides in the nervous system in the back of the neck.  The Datura (a minute dose, as it is poisonous) stimulates the nervous system and the St John’s Wort breaks down the outer coat of the virus, so that the immune system can interact with the virus.  Information on the function of the herpes virus emerged in a shamanic realignment session, which will be covered in more detail in a later post.)

Dean’s BCC at the beginning of the process:

bccnov28

 

As a note on this, I made a broccoli extract with glycerin and that did not work at all – the BCC began to grow again as though it was being fed.

Endnote on apoptosis

“….apoptosis (Greek, “shedding, falling off”), a process of programmed cell death in which an organism sheds part of itself that is no longer viable. In contrast to necrosis, traumatic cell death that results from acute cellular injury, apoptosis is a regulated process that advantages the further mutation of the organism undergoing it. Apoptosis produces cell fragments called apoptotic bodies able to engulf and quickly remove before the contents of the cell can spill out onto surrounding cells and cause damage.

German scientist Karl Vogt first described the principle of apoptosis in 1842, and in 1885, anatomist Walther Flemming produced a more precise description of the process of programmed cell death, based on studies of the developing tadpoles of the midwife toad.”

Is Pepe the Frog a Witch’s Familiar? Deeper Dimensions of the Froggy Meme, John Lash

The cultural meme John highlights in this essay has its physiological correlates in the human body, in accordance with the Hermetic Principle: ‘as within so without’ (of which the inverse is also correct). So, the parts of society that no longer serve the Anthropos are falling away at the same time as the A10 cells in our bodies are being shed to make way for A11. Whether you, as an individual, experience this process as traumatic or transformational depends upon your capacity, health and personal circumstances and most significantly on what narrative  framework shapes your perception.

Seen from within the framework of the Sophianic Narrative, a BCC is like a biofeedback alarm, indicating the need for some corrective action so that the mutation (apoptosis) we are undergoing as a species can proceed smoothly for that individual. It is not a life-threatening condition, but it does bring your attention to how you live you life.  We have made significant adjustments to our lifestyle, we live off-grid in a house built of natural materials, we have our own water supply and we grow as much of our food as possible.  We’ve paid particular attention to reducing our exposure to dirty electricity and EMFs, as it’s my view that this interferes with the natural frequencies of the earth.  All of this has been a great pleasure, washed down with excellent Spanish wine!

Notes on the Telestic Method, Selection and the Command Syntax

The telestic method

The telestic method of investigation, also called “instruction by the Light” is a reconstruction of the practice used by the Gnostic seers of the ancient mystery schools of Europe. It is the only method known on the planet that has delivered verifiable evidence of interactivity with the planet, so far. I am using the method to find solutions to real practical problems, such as eradicating the archontic infection, and to learn about the true nature of reality so as to participate more deeply in the processes of life on this planet. The method is not a secret and anyone can try it, although not everyone will be successful.

The word “gnosis” is usually used in reference to some sort of special knowledge, that is considered to be “spiritual”, esoteric and concerned with matters beyond everyday existence. I think of it as “direct knowledge”, meaning knowledge received directly, without any intermediary, from the local source of life on this planet, the earth. “The Light” is the Organic Light (OL), the radiant luminosity that animates all life because it is the naked body of the indwelling divinity of the earth. This is not a belief, but a direct experience of  the telestic method.

This summer we held two Planetary Vision Quest Retreats, the unique rite of passage particular to Planetary Tantra, for the “new aboriginals of the 21st century”. There were eighteen participants in total, most were familiar with John Lash’s work. In both retreats several participants encountered the OL for the first time. We enjoyed moments of great beauty. Here are the words from one neophyte, who at 76 years old still retained the stance of a warrior and the innocence of a child:

I came to your place in pure innocence and curiosity and couldn’t in my wildest fantasy imagine what would happen.

It was the most beautiful and fulfilling experience in my entire life. Now I don’t need to believe anymore – I KNOW that the Earth Goddess exist here and now and can be called upon.

The entire nature was dancing with wonderful colors and patterns before my very eyes and waving for me to take part in Gaia’s dance.

I was not really aware of the moon at first but when I began concentrating on the moon, I saw Her and she is indeed “flirtatious”.

The meeting with her was very intense and real. Her beauty is immense and the challenge is “How much beauty can you take” and I could take quite a lot, but surely not all…”

Hans has since translated the whole of Not in His Image into Swedish, demonstrating the true effect of witnessing the OL, in that it shows up in how you live your life – what you achieve, rather than what you say about yourself.

It is always a fervent desire of all neophytes to encounter the OL, but witnessing the OL cannot be the aim of a telestic session. The purpose of a telestic session is to receive instruction from the Light, which means that participants must have a question prepared and the presence of mind to ask it at the moment they encounter the OL. This is not easy to do first time around. In the age of the mystery schools, neophytes would have undergone a rigourous selection process and have had years to prepare for this moment. We do not have the luxury of such extensive preparation, in this tiny window at the close of the kalpa. Experience has shown that it is a foolhardy expedition even to attempt such preparation in the few days we have together before a telestic session, so we will be changing the structure of future events accordingly. Look out for the Hierophant Programme to be announced in January 2017.

Selection in Correction

Since the onset of Correction, which began in March 2014, it is becoming ever more clear that the Aeonic Mother is calling the shots. Human witnesses can participate in Her Correction on Her terms only. What does this mean?

There is a selection process underway and it is a species level event. There is no doubt that humanity will survive, as all indications are that the Aeon Sophia aims to continue with this experiment and She now has witnesses to Her actions too. However, a mutation of the human species is now underway and a new strain, Anthropos 11 is appearing alongside the pre-existing A10. Although the specific attributes of A11 are still not fully discernible, the failure of A10 is becoming more self-evident by the day. A10 does not appear to be evolving towards the genius level with which it was endowed any time soon, primarily due to the archontic infection and the way it has manifested during this kalpa, (one Aeonic day, or 25,920 years). John’s insight into how this kalpa is coming to an end is very clear and makes perfect sense to anyone of sufficient intellect to understand.  See Director’s Cut. The big question for each of us is: how does this play out at an individual level? Now, you want to ask: what’s in it for me? That’s a perfectly valid question, but from now on, in order to stay in the game, you must also ask: what’s in it for the species. A11 consciously operates at both personal and transpersonal levels with simultaneity.

Regarding the initial conditions for selection, are you an individual? The billions of people on this planet who respond with Pavlovian predictability to the dictates of their chosen tribal leaders are not individuals. They play-out to the end of the mainstream movie and then what? Oblivion beckons. Who cares? If you consider yourself to be an individual and act as an individual AND with regard to the contribution you are making to the species, there are still further competencies needed in order to be selected into A11. These conditions are still coming into focus. So far, I can say that you need to be sane and rational, you must have a critical level of intelligence, you must appreciate beauty, your pleasure drives must be intact and you certainly can’t be biophobic. You need to be in good health too, as the transmutation process takes a lot of energy.

Beyond this, there is still another level of selection, whereby after having met the selection criteria set by the Aeonic Mother (whatever they might be) you still have to select yourself in – voluntary self-selection. This seems to be based on your impeccability and how you live up to the pretenses you set for yourself. Those of us present at the Sovereign Moment Retreat here in August, witnessed failure of self-selection for one individual. I had known this young man, we’ll call him ‘S’, for two years and he had presented himself as a dedicated student; he could be funny and seemingly insightful on occasion, but it turned out that he was pretending to be a warrior and his pretending showed up catastrophically in the session. S could not control himself and became hysterical, luckily doing no harm to himself or anyone else. As a species the Anthropos is designed to learn from its mistakes and that often means that we over-extend ourselves and get into hot water, there is nothing wrong with that. However, to learn from a mistake you have to admit the mistake and S failed to do that and went on to make further mistakes, revealing the weak character he tried so hard to hide. Does this prove S is A10, doomed to extinction? I cannot possibly say. My observation is that he did not behave with the excellence or impeccability – arete – of the warrior he claimed to be and therefore, he cannot receive instruction by the Light.

As a contrast, I want to record the most beautiful moment on this retreat, which was when Alex claimed her personal sovereignty. A few of us had the pleasure of seeing how Alex directed PAM’s rage and acted on it with strength, grace and precision. Alex had been battling an illness for a while and in that moment I saw her innate self-healing spring to life.

An addendum to this and coming down to earth with a big, fat bump relates to an experience earlier this year. On this occasion I met a woman who was morbidly obese and had zero personality. This woman claimed to have a multi-millionaire, handsome, yacht-owning boyfriend who wanted to marry her. The obvious question: what on earth does he see in you, was not asked by anyone there, even though we all thought it. Was that kindness? Now that the Maitreya Process is active, I think it is easier to address such sensitive issues as they arise, in the spirit of friendship. The unasked questions, the topics that create tension when they spontaneously arise, these thoughts when expressed in the moment have the power to pierce the thickest armour and release the prisoner trapped inside.

The Command Syntax: interim report

I’ve been working on this since the November 2015 retreat in Andalucia. My command for the Summer Solstice Retreat was: show me the command syntax. In the moment of stabalising the OL I stated the command sub-vocally and Her response was immediate and crystal clear: what do you want me to do? Unfortunately, I wasn’t ready for that and didn’t have an answer.

In preparation for the Sovereign Moment Retreat I studied the following text:

When Pistis saw the impiety of the Lord Archon she was filled with anger. Acting in her invisible form, she spoke in this way: “You are mistaken, blind one — false deity who cannot see. There is an immortal luminous child, the Anthropos, who came into existence before you and who will appear among your spectral forms (plasmata). This luminous child will trample you in scorn just as a potter’s clay is pounded (into a lump). And you will sink away to your proper zone, the abyss (of gravity), along with those who belong to your legion.

“For at the consummation of your work, the entire defect [of Archontic illusion] exposed in the light of truth will be abolished, and will be as if it never had been.”
— On the Origin of the World, 103.15-30

I was groping for the command that would bring this text to fruition, because at that time it was not clear to me what sovereignty was to Her. I went through many variations of killing all the archontic agents and their proxies, but how could the Anthropos recover it’s pride without defeating it’s enemies? And who was going to do it? “The luminous child will trample you in scorn” seemed to be the key. Who is the luminous child and what will cause them to take the requisite action? On the morning of the telestic session, this syntax came to me: show yourself and your method to the Aryan people.

Initially, I considered the term “white people”. However, one of the neophytes at the retreat demonstrated through her actions, that this was not correct. Cheryl does not have white skin, but in her disciplined approach, intellect, beauty and pursuit of excellence, she proved herself to be Aryan. Being Aryan has nothing to do with skin colour. The origin of the term is unknown, except that it was how Indo-Iranian people referred to themselves – Aryan, most likely became Iran. Over time Aryan came to be used in reference to nobility; not the accidental nobility of birth or caste, but nobility of character. Today, just as in ancient times, anyone can designate themselves as Aryan regardless of their skin colour, provided that they live up to the Aryan standard of excellence – arete. Arete is the standard of the luminous child that shines through all those who hold themselves to this standard and when you act in accordance with this standard, in whatever situation you find yourself, the enemies of humanity will be defeated. Correction in the human realm is demonstrated through arete.

So, what is sovereignty to the Aeonic Mother? It means that She now has agency within the human realm.

During the Sovereign Moment from January 9 through August 8, 2016, the planetary animal mother gained agency in the human world. This expression means that she, an Aeonic power from the galactic center now embodied in a planet, has direct access to the way human animals attend to their experiences. Gaining agency is a key factor in accomplishing her Correction which began in March 2014 after a reset process running for three years from March 2011. Indeed, It is the decisive factor.”

http://www.metahistory.org/MaitreyaProcess.php

Sophia demonstrated Her method, Her Agency, with panache and humour, just as we moved into completion of the Bhairavi shift.

This crop circle appeared in Wiltshire, England on the morning of the 27th August. This is a very specific swastika, with the four dots signifying that it represents the earth itself. I am not suggesting for a minute that Sophia did this directly. I am claiming that this is proof of Her Agency, in that She affected other human animals to do it and that this is proof of the command syntax and the telestic method, as witnessed by those who were here.

The ongoing challenge is to improve the command content and syntax and to fine-tune the process. More on this in a future post.

Off-grid living

Off-grid set-up

We went off-grid this summer to escape electrical enslavement and to be able to participate in the transmutation of the species. Yes, that’s right.  It’s not about saving money, but about participating in the path of Correction that includes the transmutation of the human species.  More about that here: Energy and Transmutation.

We’ve run two retreats with up to 13 visitors and have had no problems, so far. The winter will be different, but we don’t have visitors then and we have a back-up generator. Our set-up includes 10 x 250w panels and a 48v battery reserve, with two inverters.

The biggest challenge for us, by far, was working out our needs. Eventually, we bought a monitor from Efergy, so that we could track the actual usage of appliances over a month or so. It’s impossible to work this out from the information provided by manufacturers. Using online calculators gave us a consumption figure of around four times more than we actually use and it would have made the system prohibitively expensive if we had gone with this.

Why go off-grid?

The decision for us was really simple: Spain has made it mandatory for every household to have a smart-meter by 2018. This might change, if Spain ever manages to elect a government that represents the interests of the people, but I’m not going to make my health and sanity subject to political fantasy. Smart meters are deadly. I posted about this a while back: Enslavement by smart meter and my position has only toughened up on this point. As I’ve decreased my exposure to the grid, the more I’ve come to realize how harmful electricity is – especially with regarding to weakening the willpower of anyone within its field.

Consider this:

Delgado’s experiments took place in the 1960s. He proved how an electrical stimulation to the bull’s brain via an implant caused the charging bull to turn to the right and trot away from the scientist in the ring. In a later experiment he caused the same bull to charge off a cliff. He then went onto prove how implants were not necessary and that behaviour could be modified through the use of low power pulsating magnetic fields. Smart meters produce low energy pulsating magnetic fields.

Controlling the behaviour of the majority of the human inhabitants of planet earth has been a wet-dream of the ruling cabal for quite a while and they’ve put in a lot of effort into making it a reality. Here is a brief summary of electromagnetic mind-control experiments over the past 50 years.

From the physical health perspective, it is undeniable that smart meters, wifi and dirty electricity are a huge contributing factor to most of the modern diseases we face.  For anyone who is able to view their life as something beyond their current bodily experience, EMF pollution is a disaster of epic proportions – but not insurmountable.

Transmutation originates from the Planetary Animal Mother and surviving the transition depends on how you live, not in what you read, think or say.

Transmutation and Energy

This is the first in what will most likely become a series of posts tracking the transmutation of the Anthropos in real-time.  This subject leads into Gaian Alchemy ,as this version of Correction includes human participation in the Earth’s mitosis, through the co-creative power sharing arrangement described in Planetary Tantra.  Transmutation is selective and optional; you choose to participate and act accordingly, but, even so, not everyone will be successful.  This is an event for the species not the individual, although as individuals we are able to witness the transformation happening through us.

At this point, I can’t describe what this transmutation will look like, but I am aware of certain elements and impediments.

Electrical interference and transmutation

The frequencies for transmutation to A11 are electromagnetic and acoustic, transmitting directly to our DNA.  It’s not too different to a seed germinating at exactly the right time due to changes in light, temperature, humidity and the subtle vibrations that fall outside our normal senses.  Our ‘germination’ just happens to take place on a longer cycle than that of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun.  However, there is a problem.  Man-made electromagnetic fields from wifi, mobile phone signals and towers, smart meters, electricity and mind-control weapons disrupt the signal so that  most of us are unable to receive it or if we are, unable to respond correctly to it.

The evidence now accumulated for the health problems caused by EMFs is undeniable.

However, this is only part of the story.  The genetic apparatus consisting of 46 chromosomes is viewed as a library consisting of 46 volumes or books. Each book (a chromosome), contains a text (instructions of how to build an organism) which consists of sentences (DNA) consisting of words (genes). And each word (a gene) consists of 4 letters (certain “chemical letters”), i.e. the “genetic alphabet” consists of only 4 “letters”The texts, written in the “DNA language”, are first translated by the organism into the “RNA language” and then into the “Protein language”.  However, only 3-8% of DNA is protein coding. The remainder is transpositional DNA, which “edits, cuts and splices” the sentences into new meanings and super-conductive DNA, because DNA functions as a fractal antenna.  So most of our DNA is dedicated to re-arranging the protein  building blocks according to external instructions.

Where are these instructions/signals coming from?  Through its fractal antenna function DNA is picking up signals from the Earth, but also from every creature on the Earth and in the galaxy and in beyond; that is the nature of a fractal antenna.  EMFs distort this signal and cause stress illness and mutational errors.  As the Earth begins her process of mitosis, mistakenly referred to as ascension by some, She is changing Her frequencies too.  The Earth has many different frequencies and telluric currents.  One example are the Schumann Resonances. The Schumann resonances are quasi standing electromagnetic waves that exist between the surface of the earth and the ionosphere.   They were first discovered by Professor Schumann of the University of Munich in 1953 and  later confirmed to be an average of 7.83Hz.  Since then there have been reports from the Russian Space Observing System of an increase in the average to 8.5Hz, with peaks of 16.5Hz.  It is also acknowledged that it is now much more difficult to monitor the Earth’s frequencies due to man-made EMFs.  Research has shown how the human body is entrained to the rhythms of the Earth, The Schumann Resonances and Human Psychobiology and much more research shows how man-made EMFs are proven to have a detrimental effect on the functioning of our DNA.

The combination of the change in the Earth’s frequencies as She corrects Her course and man-made electromagnetic pollution have created an intolerable level of physiological and cellular stress for the majority of the inhabitants of the planet, resulting in increased illness and deviation from our full potential.  When too much of your energy has to be used to repair the body, there is insufficient left for transmutation.  Transmutation takes a great deal of energy.

Transmutation and energy

In “Retrotransposons as Engines of Human Bodily Transformation” Colm A Kelleher PhD proposes that transposons or “jumping DNA could be the mechanism behind states known as enlightenment, nirvana or samadhi.

“Many of the descriptions in the literature associate a sudden reversal of aging or the emergence of a light body with the attainment of “enlightenment”. This phenomenon appears to be mostly, but not always, associated with death. For example: “Very early in the morning of the 25 of October 1419 the 62 year old Tsong Khapa made a series of inner offerings although no one present could understand why.Then his breathing ceased and his body regained the vibrancy of a 16 year old. Many disciples present witnessed the emission of variegated light rays from his body, which substantiated the belief that Tsong Khapa entered the realm of enlightened beings “(Blackman, 1997).

There have been similar descriptions in the native American/Mexican culture, notably Carlos
Castenada’s account of the exit of the nagual/sorcerer Don Juan Matus from the physical world by “burning the fire from within” (Castenada,1981,1984). According to Castenada, Don Juan chose both the time and place to accomplish this feat. “The warriors of Don Juan’s party…vanished into the total light. I saw Don Juan take the lead. And then there was only a line of exquisite lights in the sky. Something like a wind seemed to make the cluster of lights contract and wiggle. There was a massive glow on one end of the line of lights where Don Juanwas” (Castenada, 1981).

The specifics of a master selecting the method, the time and the place of his or her exit from the physical world is common to many cultures and religious traditions and is often associated with the emergence of a light body (Blackman, 1997). Exercising choice in this manner lies outside the normal experience of most human beings who are overtaken by death. The death of the Tibetan master Milarepa generated reports of (i) two identical bodies that were being worshipped at two different places (an example of bilocation), (ii) a body that was impervious to burning on a funeral pyre and (iii) a body “transformed into a radiant celestial body, as youthful as a child eight years old” (Lhalungpa, 1982). The above reports all pertain to the question of survival after bodily death. They imply that the human body, under certain rare circumstances, is capable of generating a corporeal entity that survives the cessation of life on earth.”

You can imagine how reading that passage caught my attention; I’ve been tracking Don Juan for a few years now and just sniffing out the Tibetan masters and to find them both mentioned in a scientific study is a bullseye. I think Kelleher is on the mark with his description of how transposons work regarding human transformation.  There are many other studies linking transposons with mutations, but these are mostly disease causing and erroneous. That’s because the granular details of the effects are not considered within context; ie the conditions of the laboratory experiment in which we are enmeshed, the levels of atmospheric, electromagnetic and biochemical pollution we face every day and the fact that the setting for the experiment (the planet) is also going through Her own transformation.  Nonetheless, many of us sense something different going on.

Up until recently, you could only catch glimpses of anthropine transmutation through the pinhole lens of scientism or religion’s calculated misdirection.  These distorted visions of transhumanism, life after death salvation or escape from the cycle of samsara get a lot of airtime, but is that the reality you want to select yourself into? This is the bloody line between metaphysics and everyday living: if you go to see a doctor for every pain or illness, with every visit you give away some of your innate self-healing ability and move a little closer to becoming a hybrid-human app.  If you think sex is sinful, you necessarily limit your enjoyment of it and if you think your body is just a vehicle for your soul, you will never be able to transmutate within it.  The nature of reality is inseparable from our perception of it and our participation with it. So, how do you imagine this possibility?  How do you live it?

Carlos Castaneda talks about energy in The Power of Silence:

“From where the average man stands, sorcery is nonsense or an ominous mystery beyond his reach. And he is right–not because this is an absolute fact, but because the average man lacks the energy to deal with sorcery. Human beings are born with a finite amount of energy, an energy that is systematically deployed, beginning at the moment of birth, in order that it may be used most advantageously by the modality of the time.

The modality of the time is the precise bundle of energy fields being perceived. I believe man’s perception has changed through the ages. The actual time decides the mode; the time decides which precise bundle of energy fields, out of an incalculable number, are to be used. And handling the modality of the time–those few, selected energy fields–takes all our available energy, leaving us nothing that would help us use any of the other energy fields.

The average man, if he uses only the energy he has, can’t perceive the worlds sorcerers do. To perceive them, sorcerers need to use a cluster of energy fields not ordinarily used. Naturally, if the average man is to perceive those worlds and understand sorcerers’ perception he must use the same cluster they have used. And this is just not possible, because all his energy is already deployed.

Think of it this way. It isn’t that as time goes by you’re learning sorcery; rather, what you’re learning is to save energy. And this energy will enable you to handle some of the energy fields which are inaccessible to you now. And that is sorcery: the ability to use energy fields that are not employed in perceiving the ordinary world we know. Sorcery is a state of awareness. Sorcery is the ability to perceive something which ordinary perception cannot.”

Don Juan lived a sorcerer’s life, which enabled him to die a sorcerer’s death.  The Sophianic Narrative, with its intel on the nine previous failed experiments with the Anthropos and the promise of the 11th, had not been recovered at the time of Castaneda’s writing.  You can read about this here: Goddess to the Rescue – The Kalki Avatar in Sophianic Perspective. Individuals cannot escape death, but the Luminous Child is immortal. The question is: what qualities of A10 go into A11?  How we manage our energy has to be one of them.

This is not new.  The alchemists, bereft as they were of the treasures of the Mysteries, knew this.  Their many depictions of the flask are a representation of the luminous egg that encloses the human body and a visualization of the necessity of saving energy for transformation/transmutation/alchemy.  I chose this one (from the Ripley Scrolls), as I’ve been looking into the dragon lines today.  Dragons are not so much fire-breathing reptilians as representations of the telluric currents of the Earth and how they can bring, devastation, transformation and protection.

alchemical-flasks-and-dragon

Energy Healing for Transmutation

So, here we are as a species, damaged beyond the imaginations of the gods and yet still forming the matrix from which A11 is emerging. How do we participate in this transmutation?  Well, I’ll have more to say on this in the future.  For this post, the main points are to remove yourself from as much electromagnetic and acoustic interference as  you can, so that your DNA can receive natural signals, rather than archontic ones.  If you live in a city and want to participate, get out, whatever it takes. In order to have the capacity for transmutation you need to be in homeostasis and in order to get there your Individual healing must be as energy-efficient as possible.  I’ll be writing more on this in the future, but some one special sent me this just as I was contemplating how DNA interacts  acoustically and electromagnetically to the environment.

Transmutation emerges from how you live, not what you think or read.

This one of the main reasons we went off-grid this summer.  More on that here.

Usnea Barbata, Old Man’s Beard

Usnea, Old Man’s Beard

Lichens are composite life-forms, the product of a symbiotic relationship between algae, funghi and yeast. Many of them look like plants, but they are not plants at all. Lichens can grow in almost any environment, from bare rock to arctic tundra, deserts and even toxic slag heaps. Some even grow inside rock and others spend their entire lives blowing in the wind. They survive because the algae provide food for the funghi through photosynthesis and the fungi provides filaments that protect the algae from the environment and moisture that it draws from the air.  The yeasts help the lichen produce acid to defend itself from other microbes. Lichens are not parasites; where they grow on living trees they don’t harm the trees in any way, they might even provide benefits.  Lichens provide food and medicine, often in the most inhospitable places and Usnea Barbata, Old Man’s Beard is one of the most useful.

Modern science likes to isolate and study the components of life, without attention to the interactions between them. As such, science has identified the ‘main compound’ behind bearded usnea’s health properties as the bitter usnic acid. Repeated studies have shown the usneas to be effective against Gram-positive bacteria, such as Bacillus subtilis, Enterococcus faecalis, Mi-crococcus viradans, Staphylococcus aureus, streptococci and mycobacterium tuberculosis, often with very low concentrations.

Source: Identification and Quantitation of Usnic Acid from the Lichen Usnea Species of Anatolia and Antimicrobial Activity

A wide range of symptoms and everyday illnesses are attributed to these bacteria, many of which are also considered to be ‘antibiotic resistant’. Bear in mind the etymology of ‘anti-biotic,’ which literally means against life; if you killed all the microbes in your body, you would die. We already live symbiotically with many micro-organisms, which makes a creature like lichen a very useful plant teacher, given its unique symbiotic expertise.

According to the NHS website in the UK, these diseases can be attributed to Staphylococcus aureus:

“There are many types of Staphylococci, but most infections are caused by a group called Staphylococcus aureus.

This group of bacteria includes meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), which is resistant to certain antibiotics that are commonly used for staph infections, such as flucloxacillin.

It also includes PVL-Staphylococcus aureus, which produces a toxin called Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL), which kills infection-fighting white blood cells and can cause recurrent skin infections, such as boils and abscesses.

This page covers some of the main types of staph infection, including information on how these infections are spread and treated.

Types of staph infections

Staph infections can be broadly classified into two groups: skin and soft tissue infections, and invasive infections. Examples are given below.

Skin and soft tissue infections

Most infections caused by staph bacteria are relatively minor and only affect the skin or underlying tissue. Common examples include:

  • boils – red, painful lumps on the skin that usually develop on the neck, face, armpit or buttocks
  • impetigo – a highly contagious skin infection that mainly affects children, which can cause sores, blisters and crusts to develop on the skin
  • cellulitis – an infection of the deep layers of the skin, which can cause affected areas to quickly become red, painful, swollen and hot
  • skin abscess – a collection of pus that appears as a painful lump under the surface of the skin
  • folliculitis – an infection of a hair follicle (small sac in the skin that a hair grows from), which causes an itchy pus-filled bump to develop
  • wound infections – an infection of a cut or graze or surgical wound, causing redness, swelling, pain and pus
  • staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS) – a more serious condition that mainly affects babies and young children, where staph bacteria release a toxin that damages the skin, leading to extensive blistering that looks like the skin has been scalded

Invasive infections

In a small number of people, a staph skin infection can lead to a more serious, invasive infection deeper within the body. Examples include:

  • septic arthritis – a joint infection that causes pain, swelling, redness and tenderness in affected joint
  • osteomyelitis – a bone infection, usually affecting one of the legs, causing bone pain, restricted movement, and swelling, redness and warmth in the affected are
  • pneumonia – an infection of the lungs that causes persistent coughing, breathing difficulties and chest pain; this often occurs after a viral illness such as fl
  • endocarditis – an infection of the inner lining of the heart, causing a fever, chest pain, coughing, weakness and shortness of breat
  • sepsis – an infection of the blood that causes a high temperature (fever), rapid heartbeat and rapid breathin
  • toxic shock syndrome – where bacteria release toxins into the blood, which can cause a sudden fever, vomiting, diarrhoea, faintingdizziness, confusion and a rash.”

http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Staphylococcal-infections/Pages/Introduction.aspx

This is what the same NHS site has to say about Streptococci infections:

“Minor strep A infections

Most infections caused by strep A are unpleasant, but don’t pose a serious threat to your health. These include:

  • throat infections (pharyngitis or “strep throat”) and tonsillitis – which can cause a sore throat, swollen glands and discomfort when swallowing
  • impetigo – a skin infection that can cause sores, blisters and crusts to develop on the skin
  • cellulitis – an infection of the deeper layers of the skin, which can cause affected areas to quickly become red, painful, swollen and hot
  • a middle ear infection – which often causes earache, a high temperature (fever) and some temporary hearing loss
  • sinusitis – an infection of the small cavities behind the forehead and cheekbones, which causes a blocked or runny nose and a throbbing pain in your face
  • scarlet fever – an infection that causes a widespread, fine pink-red rash that feels like sandpaper to touch

Invasive strep A infections

In rare cases, strep A bacteria can penetrate deeper inside the tissues and organs of the body, and become what’s known as an invasive infection.

These infections are much rarer and usually affect certain groups of people, including babies, elderly people, people with diabetes, and people with weak immune systems (for example, because of cancer treatment or HIV).

Examples of invasive infections include:

  • pneumonia – an infection of the lungs that causes persistent coughing, breathing difficulties and chest pain
  • sepsis – an infection of the blood that causes a fever, rapid heartbeat and rapid breathing
  • meningitis – an infection of the protective outer layer of the brain that causes a severe headache, vomiting, stiff neck, sensitivity to light and a distinctive blotchy red rash
  • toxic shock syndrome – where bacteria release toxins into the blood, which can cause a sudden high fever, nausea and vomiting, diarrhoea, fainting, dizziness and confusion
  • necrotising fasciitis – an infection of the deeper layers of the skin, fat and covering of the muscle (fascia), which can cause severe pain, swelling and redness of the affected area that can spread very quickly

Group B strep

Group B strep (strep B) usually live harmlessly inside the digestive system and in the vagina.

Strep B can sometimes cause urinary tract infections (UTIs), skin infections, bone infections, blood infections and pneumonia, particularly in vulnerable people, such as the elderly and those with diabetes.”

http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/streptococcal-infections/pages/introduction.aspx.

Streptococci and Staphylococci commonly live on the skin of humans and other animals. They are not usually problematic, but they are opportunistic and like to get into open wounds where they can cause problems, especially for a weakened or poorly trained immune system. They are highly infectious, from human to human and between humans and other animals.  I hold the view that exposure to these kind of bacteria are useful to a healthy individual, training the immune system and keeping the local bacterial colony in check.

I’m not going to go into detail regarding all the bacteria that usnea is effective against, it is generally regarded as effective against most gram-positive bacteria. Its effectiveness in strep and staph infections is sufficient for it to hold its place in Panacea’s chest. And it grows locally.

I first noticed Old Man’s Beard on the edge of the clearing where I do special cordings, a place of power. I didn’t know what it was at first, receding shyly amongst the Stag’s Antler Lichens on the oak trees. It has a slightly more yellow hue than the Stag’s Antler (Evernia Prunastri) and has beard-like tufted fibres that are rounded, as opposed to the flattened lobes of the Stag’s Antler, that is also known as Oak Moss. I usually notice plants and minerals only at the exact time I need them, but I didn’t have any specific need for usnea when it called my attention. After I looked it up and realised just how useful it is, I went and harvested some to make a tincture. I’ve used it many times since then and consider it to be one of the most useful tinctures to have to hand.

How I’ve used usnea:

Usnea for infected wounds

Recently, Freya gashed her leg quite badly one evening. Overnight, she managed to turn a nasty gash into a gaping wound, so we decided to take her to the vets to get stitched up. The position of the wound put a huge strain on the stitches and by the next day she’d ripped several out, leaving a nice little pocket for bacteria to colonize. The wound got infected and began to smell, so I cleaned it and dosed her with Usnea Barbata tincture, internally and directly on the wound. By the next day the infection had cleared and she’d managed to rip the rest of the stitches out, leaving an open but clean wound.

I don’t have any photos of when she first did it, or the infected stage, but this is the wound six days after she did it, after the infection was cleared and she had begun healing. This is the wound xxxx days later. We have been treating it with yarrow in coconut oil to keep it clean and stimulate healing.

Usnea for cystitis

A visitor here felt cystitis coming on, so I gave her Usnea Barbata tincture to take in a glass of water every hour. Within three hours the symptoms had reduced, but she had to leave and I didn’t have enough tincture to give her.  I’m fairly sure that the tincture would have resolved the problem if she had been able to continue taking it.

Strep and staph are often involved in cystitis, along with other bacteria. Correcting the strep and staph imbalance can provide a sufficient boost, so that the immune system can take care of the rest.

Usnea for sore throat

Streptococcus bacteria cause many throat infections. Infections often occur when seasons change, or when groups of people get together. I got strep throat around the autumn equinox and there are four of us here right now. I took usnea tincture when the symptoms first appeared like a rasping in the back of my throat and it cleared up the next day. A few days later it came back causing swollen glands in my neck. Once again I took usnea tincture, s a dropper full three times a day and it cleared up within 24 hours.

Preparation of usnea tincture

My preferred method is to dry the clumps of Old Man’s Beard, in a dehydrator or naturally, then grind it up in a coffee grinder till it forms a fine powder. I then simmer it gently in alcohol for 20 minutes, I use local orujo, let it cool and simmer it again. Once it’s cooled the second time I put the whole lot in a jar and leave it to steep for a week or so.

I’ve tried it without grinding and the resulting tincture lacks the green colour of the powdered version and doesn’t taste so much of the lichen.
