The Planetary Vision Quest Retreat is the unique rite of passage ritual for the “new aboriginals” of the 21st century. That is the poets, novelists, dancers, musicians, herbalists, body-workers, stone-workers, animal-keepers, artisans and gardeners who live beyond the mainstream and yearn for connection with the origins of life, pre-civilization and pre-religion. There is only one source of life for the creatures of this world and that is the planetary environment in which we live, the earth. Our lives, our trials and triumphs and the stories we tell ourselves and each other about them, cultural achievements and civilizations, as well as the lost stories of our ancestors hidden in myth and folk-lore; none of these things would exist without the dreaming power of the earth and they will all be lost and forgotten too, unless they are grounded in the earth’s own story.
The living earth is the physical body of the Wisdom Goddess, the Aeon Sophia. Many of you reading this will already know Her Story, the Fallen Goddess Scenario and for some of you this will be a new discovery. The call to the wilderness comes through the ‘Dreamtone’ of the Goddess who is dreaming you into being at every moment of your life. If you answer the call and devote yourself to this particular practice of discovery, you will find yourself on an adventure in magical realism that consecrates your entire existence into the divine source of sentient and animal life. The identification of the living planet as the physical incarnation of the Goddess Sophia, is the unique realization of the Gnostic seers who founded the Pagan Mysteries to teach humanity “who we are, what we have become, whence we have come, where we have been thrown, where we are going, how we are redeemed, what is birth, what is rebirth.”
The Planetary Vision Quest Retreat is grounded in the Sophianic Narrative and follows the teachings of the Terma of Gaia Awakening, through the practice of Planetary Tantra. Gnostic scholar, teacher and nagual, John Lamb Lash brought these treasures to the world and the retreat is faithful to his work and the guidelines he has set in all respects. His web site, metahistory.org, offers free access to all his research and the materials that show the provenance of the Planetary Vision Quest. You can also buy his book, Not in His Image from Amazon. It is not necessary for participants to be familiar with his work, but all applicants are required to read the three basic texts listed below BEFORE applying. Planetary Tantra is open to all, but it is not suited to all and you must inform yourself in order to make that decision for yourself. If you read these texts and find yourself hungry for more, that’s a good indication of suitability, but you must also hold within yourself a pre-existing and deep love for the earth and a fervent desire to get to know Her intimately.
The Planetary Vision Quest Retreat 2016 is a week-long adventure in Galicia, northwest Spain, ‘the land of milk and light’. It is a back-to-nature retreat, in a beautiful and wild location, with no towns or villages within walking distance and most activities take place outside. (To find out more about the facilities click here.) The Planetary Vision Quest includes all the elements of the traditional rites of passage, exponentially amplified by the superiority of the guiding myth, the Sophianic Narrative, and the practices that have emerged through living that Narrative – Planetary Tantra is the only spiritual practice in the world dedicated exclusively to the final 200 years of the Kali Yuga. Each participant in the Planetary Vision Quest will return to the world at large with a greater understanding of how to weave the thread of his/her life into the fabric of the universe and how to live on the tantric path of seeking liberation through desire, not from it – a vastly expanded vision and mission. Participation in the Planetary Vision Quest carries the commitment to be an emissary of Planetary Tantra and to propagate the sacred narrative and you will not get the full benefit of the retreat unless you are able to come with this intention.
The crowning feature of the Planetary Vision Quest Retreat is the telestic session, in which initiates will be guided into a state of cognitive ecstasy using shamanic plants, with the intention of witnessing the Organic Light, the naked body of the Wisdom goddess. Instruction by the Light is the trance-learning technique practised by the ancient Gnostics. This is a very specific process that does not include individual journeying or encounters with imaginary beings. There will be extensive preparation and briefings for the telestic session and de-briefing after.
The retreat covers all aspects of Five Element Planetary Tantra:
Dakini Shifts, the Tantric Zodiac and real sky observation
The retelling of the Fallen Goddess Scenario and perhaps The Legend of the Grail
The Planetary Vision Quest Retreat is precisely calibrated for these troubled times. It is built on John Lash’s work of the past forty years, which itself draws on a lineage that is several thousand years old and also, intriguingly, from the future. This is a robust event for those already practising Planetary Tantra, or with a serious interest in discovering it. It might be considered as an introduction to the path of the warrior shaman, although there is no obligation to follow through in that way.
Qualifications and application process: no formal qualifications or experience are required for the Planetary Vision Quest Retreat, except for the fervent desire to connect with the Wisdom Goddess. However, acceptance is by application only, due to the desirability for gender balance and with regard to the dynamics of the group.
Potential applicants are required, at minimum, to read these essays before registering interest:
Thuja Occidentalis, Arborvitae – release from self-sabotage
“The complicity [between victim and perpetrator] implies a kind of contact of sin, with both parties falling short of God’s command. Perpetrators who harm others are obviously sinners, but so are the people they harm, who may well believe they are being justly punished by a higher power. The wrong done to victims is due to the wrong they have done in the eyes of God. To make matters worse, the twisted syntax of the victim-perpetrator bond condones domination, violence, aggression, and murder as expressions of divine retribution. Those who enact the will of God in violent ways are as righteous as those who suffer violence, because the bond prescribes and legitimates both roles. A deal that sanctifies violence and guarantees the righteous vindication of its victims is hard to beat.”
John Lamb Lash, Not in His Image
Glorification of the ultimate act of self-sabotage is the centre piece of Christianity. Every other creature on this planet uses whatever defense mechanisms it has instinctively, without hesitation. The insidious indoctrination into self-sabotage turns victim-hood into such a virtue that even the perpetrators pretend to be victims. It takes force to break the victim-perpetrator bond and the victim cannot command this force while under the spell of self-sabotage.
The Spell of Self-Sabotage
The spell of self-sabotage has become an epigenetically normalised pattern of gene expression for most native Europeans. Perhaps it has for other races too, but I can’t speak for them. It is evident in the proliferation of harmful addictions, auto-immune conditions and patterns of learned helplessness. For sure, self-sabotage is not the only problem, but it is a problem that is entirely within our gift to resolve, freeing us up to deal with the other problems we face.
In German, Gift means poison. When the ‘gift’ comes from the Planetary Animal Mother, it can bring life or death, depending on amount and timing. The English word ‘poison’ is Latin, but the Indo-European equivalent is ‘virus’. In this sense, mild childhood viruses could be considered as the gift of the Aeonic Mother, strengthening and informing the physical sense of self, so that we can deal with predators we might encounter later in life. At the most basic level the immune system is part of the mind-body system that interfaces with the external world. Its key role is in binary self-identification, ‘me/not me’ so that it can initiate appropriate responses to invaders. Vaccinating a newborn before it has developed a bond with its mother or any self-identity sets up a potentially life-long dependency on others for identity and validation. These forlorn creatures are like the forest dwellers of Narnia, living in fear and locked into the perpetual winter of the soul under a spell they cannot break. They do not even know they are under a spell.
If you are reading this, you have sufficient wherewithal to break the spell, but you can’t do it without the gift; the poison of the Scorpion Mother. I took the poison and broke the spell.
The Gift of Arborvitae
Thuja Occidentalis is also know as White Cedar and Arborvitae, the Tree of Life. It has a long history of use in Native American medicine and in Traditional Chinese Medicine, where it is known as Thuja Orientalis. It is not considered to be a native of Europe, which seems odd. Some fossilzed remains from before the last ice age have been identified in Poland, perhaps the cold wiped them out.
I felt the call of the White Arborvitae last year and bought several small trees and planted them, so that they can become ‘native’, as home-grown medicine is always more effective. I was delighted to discover that one of the oldest known Thujas in North America is The Witch Tree on the shores of Lake Superior in Minnesota, where my husband is from. It is said to date from 1731 and embodies the determination and resilience of the Ojibwe people, who call it Little Spirit Cedar.
Little Spirit Cedar
I have tried a Thuja homeopathic remedy before with Riley, for her vaccine induced allergies. I didn’t notice any results at the time. Since then I’ve realized that not all homeopathic remedies are authentic. I also think that in many cases we have strayed so far from our natural environments and are so poisoned, that subtle changes in the mind-body system are not sufficient to bring about sustainable changes by themselves. Nonetheless, something about Thuja stuck in my mind and after Riley died and Freya came into our lives, I decided to give it another go.
We adopted Freya, via SOS Dobermann España. She was found abandoned in Murcia and. although relatively healthy, she was malnourished, hunch-backed and we had been unable to prevent her from being vaccinated for everything possible, including rabies, before we got her. She is very sweet and loving, but would get over-excited and manic too easily and had terrible separation anxiety. Over the past few years, I’ve noticed the same tendencies in people’s children who have been vaccinated. It seems as though the ability to handle strong emotions has been impaired and that this induces fear.
A month or so ago I made a tincture with leaves from the Thujas and local orujo.
The tincture turned emerald green and had a delicious fresh=sweet perfume, a little like vanilla-infused eucalyptus.
As the leaves transformed into tincture I thought about vaccinations and realised that Dean and I needed this medicine too. We had both been vaccinated in childhood and although we had had nowhere near the number of vaccines as given to children today, our innate healing abilities were still damaged by this assault. The more I’ve looked into the history of medicine, Rockefeller medicine that is, and the profit-not-people pharmaceutical industry, the more appalled and disgusted I become and all the more determined to stay away at any cost. The detailed, factual account of the history of vaccines is far from the Disney-esque version preferred by the medical profession and the list of vaccine ingredients reads like something out of a horror movie.
The vaccine issue sign-posted the way to Arborvitae, but the underlying issue of self-sabotage is far deeper. i have worked to resolve many of my self-sabotage tendencies, but the unconscious programmes are very difficult to shift. These would show up for me as accidents or sudden illnesses before events or activities that were important to me, or that feeling of hard-grinding gears when things I really want to happen aren’t working out. This is not how PAM intends us to live and I’ve had plenty of experience of things working out with dream-like ease, but the correlation between intensity of desire and resistance was baffling. I took a small amount of Arborvitae tincture twice a day for three days and it had me flat-out and spaced-out for the whole time. This is the active ingredient, thujone, at work. By the end of the three days I was aware of the depth of the self-sabotage spell, how vaccines intensify that spell and that the spell is broken simply be seeing it and making a different choice than I would have done when under the spell. I am now able to feel more light-hearted about problems solving, especially about the things that are important to me and it feels as though I’m functioning at a more optimised level. I am also noticing how I am reading my own DNA and what this means in terms of Gaian Alchemy, on which I’ll write more another time.
Freya also had the tincture for three days, about half the amount I took and she just slept a bit more than usual. By the end of the three days she was much less manic, much calmer and the extremes of her emotional responses have evened out. When she plays with the other dogs it’s not escalating like it was before and she is listening better. She seems happier and more relaxed – and even sweeter than ever, which hardly seems possible. Note that a dog, like all non-human animals, cannot commit self-sabotage, because they cannot deny their instincts. Arborvitae works on the physical body and it is the effect on the physical body that generates the psychological change in humans, the release from self-sabotage. This psychological effect is redundant in other animals and fundamental in us.
Dean took the tincture too. He was very tired for one day, but did not report any other sensations or insights.. However, he immediately broke out in a cold sore, which showed an interaction with the herpes simplex virus. More on this in another post.
Thujone – the Poison
Thujone, the active ingredient in Thuja/Arborvitae, is also found in wormwood, coriander, tarragon and many other herbs and spices. Thujone gives absinthe its mind-altering properties. It is toxic if taken in large quantities and should not be taken in any form for long periods.
Many studies provide evidence of its beneficial effects:
The pharmacological/allopathic approach focuses on thuja’s effectiveness in alleviating symptoms, not the underlying causes. The homeopathic approach takes underlying causes into consideration, but is less widely researched. No one seems to be looking at the function of viruses within the broader context, how some can be beneficial and others have mutated into harmful forms. Thuja, Arborvitae is one of the most powerful tinctures I’ve used and I think it has much more to teach.
I’ve wanted to write about ‘shamanic healing’ for a while, as I’ve always felt distinctly uncomfortable about the term. Recently, I had a direct experience of shamanic self-healing from within the Sophianic Narrative, so I can now describe my understanding of how it works.
The Goddess, in Her Wisdom, designed human animals to be self-healing – all animals, in fact. So, why are you not healing? The reality is that you are continuously healing, more so when you are asleep or relaxed. If you cut your finger, you do not have to say: platelets go to wound, begin coagulation! It just happens. Most of the healing processes of the body are invisible and they work equally efficiently for internal disease as for visible injuries.
When healing (repair and regeneration) doesn’t seem to be happening, it is ALWAYS for one or more of these reasons:
You are continuing with the behaviour/action that causes the problem
You are consciously or unconsciously inhibiting your healing processes
Your energy or life force capacity is too diminished for healing
You were born with a genetic disorder, in vitro or birth related injury
Your self-healing ability is being deliberately destroyed by the enemies of humanity
Your environment internal/external is too toxic
Shortly after seeing the sunset crescent three days into this Swan Deva shift, I received the following insight:
In Correction, everything not done correctly will fail; the extent of the failure is directly proportionate to the deviation from correctness.
Correction commenced in March 2014, when the Aeon Sophia, Mothership and Planet Earth, set Her course back to the Galactic Centre, from whence She came. There is no escaping Correction, it is happening with or without your participation and the evidence is everywhere you look. However, the first place to look is in your own life. If you are not taking care of your body and health correctly, it too will fail.
Traditionally, shamanic healers use ritual and ceremony to ‘trick’ their patients into activating their innate self-healing, just as doctors do with their particular performances. The medical profession even has a name for our innate self-healing; they call it the placebo effect. The healthcare industry is mostly fraudulent and it’s only a matter of time before its mercenaries face the vengeance of those they have harmed. The indigenous healer-shaman, practising his ancestral tradition, is usually born into the role or selected for it by the elders at a relatively young age. I have no doubt that his medicine works with his own people in their natural environment, but it is less effective with people from other cultures. Westerners adopting shamanic traditions from other cultures are less effective than they would be if they practised the shamanic tradition of their own race. Unfortunately most Europeans don’t even know that they have a pagan, shamanic, pre-Christian tradition. Tricking people into activating their innate self-healing has worked for thousands of years, but it will not work for much longer and I have first-hand experience of this.
After my shamanic initiation, I discovered a ‘healing ability’. I’ve witnessed many seemingly miraculous healings, such as tumours disappearing before my eyes, teeth healing, scars disappearing, spines shifting, wounds healing. However, I always felt like a bit of a fraud because I knew I was tricking people, even though it was for a good reason. It was a buzz when people recovered, but the process lacked beauty and consistency and fell short of the standards of excellence demanded by any self-loving devotee of the Wisdom Goddess. I became very disillusioned and focused on one question: would it be more useful to ‘heal’ 1,000 ordinary people, or to kill one psychopath? I was released from my pretending at the end of the Vudasi shift in December 2014 and didn’t do any more ‘healing’ until last week in Andalucia.
Planetary Tantra provides an elegant and robust operational syntax through which to explain shamanic healing. The unique idea underpinning Planetary Tantra is that the Earth, the physical body of the Aeon Sophia, dreams the world into existence and you are living as a character in Her Dream. I am writing these words as the indwelling divinity of the planet dreams it, just as She dreams it as you read them. There is no need to ‘journey’ to other worlds to encounter Spirit and retrieve lost aspects of the psyche, as all past experience, memories, previous incarnations (if you like that idea) exist concurrently and simultaneously in Her Dream. Think about that.
In your everyday waking life it is as if you are in dreamless sleep, from Her perspective. In order to achieve awakened lucidity in Her dream, so that you can interact with Her, you must first know that She exists, get to know Her Story and align yourself with it. Shamanic healing requires an altered state of consciousness in which social programming is weakened and the imaginative faculties awakened. However, only imagination grounded in the Sophianic Narrative leads you into the dreaming of the Wisdom Goddess. Ordinary, ungrounded imagination is an operational outpost of the Zad-run ego and it will take you down many unicorn-filled cul-de-sacs that offer, at best, only temporary distraction from suffering.
“In all thine operations, let the Work be guided by nature, according to the slow progression of metals in the bowels of the Earth. And in thine efforts, be guided in all ways by the true and not the fantastic imagination.”
The aim of our Witch Haven experiment last week was to release and clear fear-based cell memory and related patterns. Clearing and releasing stressful patterns in the body is a vital component of the shamanic recapitulation process. We set our intentions and all took a therapeutic dose of Psilocybe cubensis then did the trauma release exercises together. This was a shared activity as a group, in which we all agreed to be silent witness to each others’ release or expression. Anyone can express what they are feeling at the time, but to bear witness in silence is an important factor in shamanic healing as verbal comment interrupts the others’ process. Things come up in this type of session, memories, pain, emotions, precisely so they can be cleared and released. This was not a telestic session; there was no plan to encounter the Organic Light or to receive instruction from the Light. The higher the dose the further the guides take you into the mind of the Goddess; a low dose keeps you close enough to deal with your own issues. Clearing and releasing is a more accurate description for this process than healing.
In addition to the group release, I had prepared to do an individual release with C. C had suffered a broken jaw about 20 years previously and whenever she attempted to participate in a telestic session the pain became excruciating. I had, mistakenly as it happened, thought that this was a cellular memory issue, a residual pattern held in the cell membranes. However, as I held the points on her head and she focused on the pain in the trance state, I felt the plates of her skull move and settle into the correct position. This was a physical injury and her body was afraid of the correction, precisely because of the trauma that caused it. We did this twice until her skull had realigned, the pain went and she felt the release. This is shamanic healing within Planetary Tantra.
In Planetary Tantra you open up your awareness to the perception that everything is happening at once, even though you can only give your attention to one thing at a time. You experience what you choose to focus on, out of all the other events and processes that are happening simultaneously in your life, based on your desire and guided by the Dakini or Mahavidya on shift. On this occasion the the moon was moving towards the tip of the arrow in the constellation of the Archer, who aims towards the right leg of the Snaketamer, whose talent (amongst many) is that of release and regeneration. Therefore the sky writing reflected our intent: ‘Aim to release’. (With thanks to Saxon for bringing this to our attention at the time.) Our mind-body systems are continuously involved in repair and regeneration. Most repair and regeneration happens when we are asleep, when metabolism is low and the mind is not influencing the processes with fear-based thoughts. Clearing and release are prerequisites for the repair and regeneration processes.
Before this session John drew our attention to a clip from the Thunderbolts Project that explained how DNA operates as a fractal antenna. I strongly suspect that the fractal antenna is the mechanism by which the Planetary Animal Mother realigns our mind-body systems into their balanced state within the planetary environment, according to Her design. At the moment, there seem to be certain conditions necessary for this realignment to take place. These conditions require the individual to experience the problem in a trance-state, to feel safe and with another human animal to witness both the suffering and the release. Immersion in the Sophianic Narrative makes the process safe and once realignment is complete for any individual, the transformation to Anthropos 11 can begin.
2015 was an exceptionally hot and dry year here. The 2014/15 winter was dry and the only rain we had until November was on our Beltane Retreat. At one point in the summer we thought our deep well had run dry and we became very conscious of the water we were using. We are even more conscious of our water usage now, as we are going off-grid this summer and we aren’t on municipal water – we need to pump our own water.
I used to take water for granted when we lived in London, but water awareness was one of Gaia-Sophia’s first lessons here. First, the well ran dry in the house we rented, even though the roof leaked into our bed when it rained! Then when we moved here we had no water in the cabin for a month and that summer, 2013, the gravity well ran dry. We had another month of driving 10 miles to fill up at the public font that brings water down from the mountains. Many people in Spain still use mountain water for drinking that comes from the public fonts that are all over Spain.
The gravity well is our reserve well as it doesn’t need electricity to run. It’s up the hill from the house and the cabin and we laid a pipe so it flows down the hill when we need it. It’s all we had until we put in a deep well and it only ran dry because we lost a lot of water when we put in the pipe. It just doesn’t have enough pressure to support all our needs when we have guests, or to water the garden. So, last summer we opened up the other well that is in the barn. This is about 15M deep, so we could put in a less powerful pump and the plan was to use that to water the food forest. That well ran dry too! The new plan is not to water the food forest.
Most farmers around here don’t irrigate their fields. They grow potatoes, cabbages, pumpkins and corn and every year they plough in cow manure to get rid of weeds and keep in moisture. We are not ploughing and we’re not using cow manure. Cow manure is full of weed seeds and creates more work than benefits. Our strategy involves swales, ditches, woodchips and trees.
The Lie of the Land
Our food forest is on a gentle south facing slope. Two years ago we cleared the straggly pines that were there there and began the process of laying out beds and terracing the slopes. We had the use of a digger for the initial clearing and to lay out the old chestnut beams that were in the house to make the terraces. The terraces are not formal and not dug out; we are just using the beams to support the downhill side of the beds as we slowly build them up over time with mulch and wood chips. The aim is to retain rain water and minimize soil erosion from water running down the slope. We’ve done most of the rest of the work by hand, mostly just Dean and I, with a few hours here and there from various visitors.
We get around 100cm of rain in a year, which should be plenty to keep the garden growing throughout the year – if we can keep it in the ground! The wettest months are November and March, but we can get showers throughout the year and cloudbursts in late summer. This province, Lugo, is named after Lugo the Celtic god who wielded a spear of lightning. Lughnasa, the first week of August (thereabouts) is when he brings lightening and thunderstorms to recharge the earth. Lugh is a Bearer of the Grail.
Our soil is mineral rich, because no one has farmed here for generations. Before the pines were planted about 20 years ago it would have been cleared pasture for cows and before that it would have been native oak and chestnut woods, that still exist in these parts. If you turn your back for five minutes in a field around here, an oak tree will shoot up! However, the soil is solid clay and without the pines providing shade and a constant supply of mulch, it turns to concrete in the summer when the sun beats down. It’s a beautiful and sheltered location, but it’s very hard on seedlings.
We have planted about 50 fruit and nut trees so far. We lost all the hazelnut trees last summer, as the hosepipe wouldn’t reach them, but all the other trees survived. Mature trees are expert water managers. A mature fruit tree can drink nearly 200L of water a day and our aim is to keep as much water in the soil as we can, so that we can minimize watering in the dry months. It might take us a few years to get to that point, as the trees are still young and not rooted deeply enough, but that’s our aim.
Trees are intelligent beings. You might not be able to hold a conversation with them, but that is just as true for many human creatures. If you plant a tree in the right place and support it when young, with the minimum intervention, it will adjust its needs to whatever the Planetary Animal Mother provides. So last year many of the trees dropped their leaves to conserve water because of the drought, but their roots were safe and they are already budding this year, after a mild wet winter. Trees collect rain and transmit it into the soil. It has been shown that broadleaved trees intercept blowing rain and conduct it down the branches and trunk to the soil. The roots then provide a path which carries the rainwater into the deeper soil layers very quickly. Our indigenous species like ash, alder, chestnut, willow, birch, oak, elm and many hedgerow shrubs are known to be particularly effective even in heavy clay soils, like ours. Coniferous trees are less effective at catching rainwater. Trees reduce flooding and prevent soil erosion, as well as providing shade and evening out the temperature extremes.
Ditches and Swales
Everyone knows what a ditch is and a swale looks like a ditch, except it runs across the contour of the land, rather than down it. A ditch moves water away from where it’s not wanted and a swale retains water where it’s needed.
We are using a combination of ditches and swales, to move rain water away from a very waterlogged area and into the swales. The swales hold more water than would stay on the surface and allow it to gradually percolate downhill below the topsoil, reducing evaporation and encouraging strong plant roots as they reach down for the water.
A full swale
We have dug three rows of swales across the slope, fed by the ditch, so that the parts of the food forest that were dry now have water leeching below the surface. Initially, we put old wood in the swales, as I’d read that the wood preserves the moisture and prevents more evaporation. I thought it might mean less mosquitoes in summer too. But the swales are so full that with the wood that they overflow all over the beds, so we are making adjustments. It also encourages brambles to fill the swales, as they love old wood. We will probably shore up the downhill side with planks over time, as this will prevent wood chips and mulch from filling the swales.
Mulching and wood chips
If you walk in the woods anywhere around here, the earth is protected by a thick mantle of rich, dark leaf mulch. This is what the food forest was like before we cleared the trees, which stripped off and compacted the mulch layer. Mama does not like to be seen naked, so the weeds then grow prolifically to cover the bare soil. We laid thick layers of hay from the fields when they were cut, to keep the earth covered and some of the weeds away, but it doesn’t work as well for growing as wood chips and mulch, so we strip it away when we make the beds. Hay works well to cover empty beds over winter, to keep them weed free and warm ready for planting in spring. It tends to get fungus easily, so I prefer wood chips.
Mulching reduces evaporation so that the soil stays moist in summer. You can mulch with almost any natural material that you can lay down in layers, like cardboard, old wool carpet or straw. However, some materials take longer to break down than others, so if you want to plant shortly after mulching, wood chips are hard to beat. We haven’t got all the beds covered yet. There’s no tree-cutting service anywhere near us and Dean has to drive to the wood yard 10km away and load up the truck, then we have to wheelbarrow it into place. It’s laborious, but the earth and the plants will thank us for it.
Our aim is to minimize our work in the garden and maximize our enjoyment and yield. It’s a two hour job to water the garden with a hosepipe and when we go off-grid that means two hours of running the pump! Working with nature to manage our water makes so much more sense.
Pine pollen is nature’s perfect boost for good health and the immune system.
Pine pollen is’the sperm’ of the pine tree and almost the same structure as human testosterone. It is the most abundant source of testosterone in the plant kingdom. Isn’t that interesting? What reason could the Planetary Animal Mother have for making this source of human testosterone in vastly more quantities than is needed for the trees alone. A single mature pine tree can produce 1-3kg of pine pollen in a season – we are surrounded by pine forest here!
At a certain time, in early April here, all the pine trees release their pollen in an explosion of green smoke across the hills. They do it several times over a period of about 10 days. This clip from the Himalayas shows what it looks like:
This presentation explains the benefits of pine pollen, how to get it and use it, very clearly.
Pine pollen is a superfood and an adaptogen, which essentially means it helps the body adapt to stress. Stress is created by adrenaline and cortisol which are produced primarily by the adrenal glands. Cortisol shuts down many functions, like the immune system, the digestive system, the reproductive system and the prefrontal cortex, so that adrenaline can use more energy to pump blood to the arms and legs so you can run or fight. This is the ‘fight/flight’ response. The problem is that we don’t run or fight and the adrenaline and cortisol remain in the body and eventually become involved in the downward spiral of autoimmune diseases, diabetes, thyroid conditions etc. Pine pollen helps reduce unnecessary fight/flight responses, so that the body has more energy for regeneration and learning.
Pine Pollen in Traditional Chinese Medicine
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the use of pine pollen as both a food and a medicine has been recorded for at least 2,400 years, as explained in the clip below.
TCM today can provide a useful insight into the proper use of many plants for food/medicine. TCM is rooted in a philosophical mix of Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism and is concerned with maintaining balance (homeostais) within the body-mind system and harmony between the body and the environment. So far as can be known from the little recorded artifacts that have survived, the Chinese practiced shamanic medicine from around 1766 to 403 BC, through the Shang and Chou Dynasties. Ancestor worship and the elimination of evil spirits is still part of TCM today. TCM emerged from an agrarian culture and the originator of Chinese herbal medicine is called, Shennong, the Divine Farmer. One theory of the origins of acupuncture is that it was discovered when warriors in battle were hit by arrows and noticed conduction of pain to other areas of the body and spontaneous remission of pain elsewhere.
Most TCM in the west is practised allopathically, in that the interventions and treatments are used to address specific symptoms or to stop the process of a particular disease or condition. TCM was originally preventive medicine, concerned with ‘treating the undiseased’ until the Opium Wars put an end to that. The ancient Chinese knew that the body-mind system is innately self-healing, provided that natural balance is maintained and ‘evil spirits’ are kept at bay. This is how things were in Europe too, before the healers were murdered and the people forced off the land and into factories and eventually subjected to ‘Rockefeller medicine.’ The road to health will inevitably lead people out of the cities and into small rural communities, exactly what Agenda 21 is trying to prevent.
I don’t think all aspects of TCM work as well on Europeans as they do on the Chinese. Ethnicity is a factor in many diseases; consider the increased risk of several types of cancer of people of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry who have a mutation in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene. The progression of disease is affected by lifestyle and environment, as much as intentionally harmful man-made interventions, such as EMFs, chemtrails and GMOs, and of course pharmaceuticals, but Nature has the solutions too. This brings me back to pine pollen. Pine trees are indigenous to the northern hemisphere and a rich source of local food and medicine for all northern hemisphere people. PAM always provides what is needed, where it is needed. China is in the northern hemisphere too, so it is well-worth taking a closer look at the use of pine pollen through the lens of TCM.
Pine pollen is released as Spring turns to Summer in the Gaian calendar. Without going into too much detail, this is the transition from liver/gall bladder to stomach/spleen in TCM, characterized by wood birthing fire. Pine pollen supports the liver, encourages regeneration and supports bile secretion. The spleen is responsible for the removal of old red blood cells and the production and storage of white blood cells (lymphocytes) which will cleanse bacteria from the blood in the spleen and provide important tissue healing and other immune responses throughout our body. In TCM the spleen is paired with the stomach and considered to be part of the digestive system, responsible for digesting the nourishment from food and converting it into energy. It is also considered to be responsible for digesting information. In other words, the spleen becomes active as we move into May and is highly involved in the maintenance of the immune system.
Pine Pollen and the Immune System
The basic function of the immune system, is the differentiation between ‘me’ and ‘not me’ in the body, so that it can detect and take action against invaders, like bacteria and viruses etc. There are two parts to the immune system: the innate, which we are born with and which works instantly to deal with wounds and immediate assaults and the adaptive, which is the learning part of the immune system. The adaptive immune system learns to deal with ‘new’ parasites, bacteria and parasites that we might become exposed to. Vaccination is an abnormal pathogen presented in an abnormal route (injection) and influences the entire immune system in an unnatural way, leading to disruption of the learning processes of the immune system.
I strongly suspect that PAM provides pine pollen in abundance at this time of year when the spleen is just about to move into its most active phase, to help it ‘learn’ what is needed to help repel invaders of all kinds. There has been very little research on pine pollen, probably for this very reason, as all research is controlled by the parasitical pharmaceutical cartel that doesn’t want us to have a healthy immune system, but there have been some studies and it is confirmed that pine pollen contains phenylalanine and tyrosine (among other things) that are amino acids in L-Dopa, the dopamine precursor. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter involved in pleasure seeking and reward behaviours, but it does not cross the blood-brain barrier. L-dopa crosses the blood-brain barrier although most of it is converted into dopamine via an enzyme in the blood before it gets there and L-dopa concentrates in the spleen. The relationship between L-dopa in the ‘information centre’ of the immune system in the spleen and L-dopa in the brain working together to train the immune system is worth further investigation. This study supports my intuition:
“Elements of dopamine signaling and metabolites can also serve as a communication interface between the central nervous system and immune system, and that communication can work in both directions. Lymphocytes [type of white blood cell in the immune system] that can pass the blood brain barrier can be “educated” by locally secreted neurotransmitters, including dopamine. Then they transmit brain-driven messages to other cells of the immune system via direct or indirect pathways.”
Endothelial cells in brain capillaries are the site of the BBB
This presentation explains the effects of pine pollen on dopamine production:
Perhaps future studies will show that pine pollen has a role to play in reversing vaccine and other damage to the immune system, but there is nothing to lose and plenty to gain by finding and harvesting some in your local pine forest.
Pine Pollen and Testosterone
As a superfood in a class of its own, pine pollen not only helps in sharpening up the ability of the immune system to identify enemies, it also helps deal with them.
Estrogen is the female hormone and testosterone the male hormone, supporting the development of properly defined male and female characteristics,. Men have some naturally occurring estrogen and women naturally occurring testosterone and it is the balance between the two that dictate gender norms for each. Xenoestrogens are environmental pollutants that have estrogen-like activity. These compounds are a primary cause of reproductive health problems in both women and men because they attach to and over-stimulate estrogen receptor sites.
Here’s a list of 10 major sources of xenoestrogens:
1. Commercially-raised meat and diary productssuch as beef, pork, chicken, milk, butter, cheese and ice cream. These products are contaminated with bovine growth hormones and expose us to a significant amount of xenoestrogens.
2. Anything that contains insecticide or pesticide residues can also have estrogenic effects. This includes everything we eat, from grains, fruits, nuts and legumes, to veggies.
3. Tap water. Unfortunately much of our water source is contaminated with petroleum derivatives – the primary source of xenoestrogens.
4. Shampoos, lotions, soaps, toothpastes, cosmetics and other personal care products that contain paraben or phenoxyethanol chemical compounds widely used by cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries as preservatives.
Note that xenoestrogens entering the skin go directly to tissue without passing through the liver for detoxification. So they’re 100% absorbed by the body and can be 10 times more potent than those consumed orally.
5. Soft plastics used as packaging materials are often treated with chemical compounds called phthalates, a xenoestrogen, to increase its flexibility.
Plastic wrapped foods, heated in the microwave, contain some of the highest xenoestrogen levels. So do not heat food or water with plastic in the microwave. Avoid drinking coffee or other hot liquids in Styrofoam cups. And store your food in glass containers whenever possible!
6. Artificial food additives, including artificial sweeteners and MSG. According to a study published in the journal, Chemical Research in Toxicology, 31 substances added to food for the purpose of preservation, coloring, texture and flavor have potential estrogenic effects.
Propyl gallate and 4-hexylresorcinol are two additives to be especially watchful for. Also avoid canned foods, which are usually lined with a plastic coating that contains bisphenol-A (BPA), a xenoestrogen.
Since most processed foods contain some kind of undesirable material, either in the packaging itself or the ingredients, it’s a good policy to cut back on processed and packaged foods.
7. Foods that contain soy protein and soy protein isolate. These foods are packed with condensed, unnaturally high amounts of plant estrogen, which can also lead to estrogen dominance.
8. Dryer sheets are loaded with xenoestrogens to make your clothes feel soft and fresh. These residual xenoestrogens can permeate your skin and go directly into your cells.
9. Birth control pills and conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) contain synthetic hormones that can interrupt our natural hormone balance.
10. Disposable menstrual products. In conventional tampons, the FDA has detected dioxins, a class of chemical contaminants that may increase the risk of cancer, reproductive and developmental problems, heart disease and diabetes.
Xenoestrogens cause changes in estrogen-sensitive tissues like the breasts, uterus and prostate. Xenoestrogens stimulate abnormal changes in these tissues, causing problems like cysts in the breasts, uterine fibroids, prostate enlargement and cancer. Xenoestrogens contribute to the death of testicular tissue in men and boys, depression caused by testosterone suppression, premature aging, infertility and obesity. The link between xenoestrogens and obesity can readily be seen by the high rates of obesity in areas where there is high exposure to xenoestrogens.
Because it is packed with natural testosterone, pine pollen provides the perfect testosterone boost to balance xenoestrogen damage, in addition to whatever avoidance and detoxification you can manage.
One gram of pine pollen contains 80 nanograms of testosterone. To put that into context, an average man has somewhere around 500 ngs of testosterone per deciliter of blood, out of which around 5-20 ngs is free testosterone not bound to either SHBG or albumin. (The testosterone in pollen is not bound to proteins either).
Given that an average male also has around 5 liters of blood, that same average guy with average testosterone would have around 250-1,000 ngs of unbound testosterone in him.
100 grams, about half a cup, of the pine pollen would contain 8,000 ngs of actual testosterone.
Testosterone is not just for men. In women it is important for bone strength and development of lean muscle mass and strength. Testosterone also contributes to overall sense of well-being and energy level. It is best known for its crucial role is a woman’s sex drive or libido. More specifically, testosterone in women is responsible for the sensitivity of a woman’s nipples and clitoris associated with sexual pleasure. Testosterone not only enhances the sexual mood of a woman, but the experience as well.
According to Stephen Harrod Buhner: “The menopausal years bring on a serious decline in women’s testosterone levels, which is generally why women tend to lack a sex drive. Pine pollen can serve as an aid to decrease the discomfort that menopause can bring,”
Pine pollen is not just a whole food, but also a superfood and one of the most potent at that. Consider how it’s immune boosting function works with its testosterone boosting function, not only to increase our awareness of the invaders in our midst, but also to give us the motivation and strength to deal with them. Pine pollen is warrior food!
Testosterone has ‘profound effect on brain circuits involved in human aggression’
As a food, pine pollen can be consumed in more or less unlimited amounts by both men and women. There is a natural limit to what you can get and what you can eat and there are no contra-indications.
I’m a big fan or getting out and responsibly harvesting all the wild foods and healing plants you can find. The easiest way to harvest the pine pollen is to carefully cut off the catkins you can reach and put them in plastic bags to be shaken out and sieved at home. You can’t over harvest this way as you won’t be able to reach that many and the trees produce so much. You can eat the pine pollen directly, it has a slightly sweet flowery taste, or bake with it, or sprinkle it on salads or breakfast cereals. It will store in a cool dry place, or you can store it in honey. The pine catkins themselves are edible, but they are a little astringent tasting – maybe better in honey?
Pine pollen tincture is a better way of accessing the testosterone in pine pollen, much of which doesn’t make its way through the digestive system. A few drops of tincture under the tongue, so that it is absorbed by the mucous membranes in the mouth is the way to take it. The tincture should not be used by adolescent boys or young men, but is safe for men and women. Strength varies, so it’s a bit of a ‘suck it and see’ scenario. I’ll be stocking up and making ours with local orujo.
I’ve recently been informed that John Lash, a very dear friend of mine, is currently the target of a nasty and libelous hate campaign, conducted by people that he used to consider friends. I intend this post to act as a counter-balance to the lies that will circulate forever on the internet, directed towards anyone who values the pursuit of truth. John has not asked me to write this. I’m doing it because it is my natural instinct to defend a friend and because it gives me the opportunity to comment on a few things that are on my mind.
False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil.
Let’s start with some facts. I first met John on the 2nd November 2014. That is an indisputable fact; it will not change if John moves to Australia, or if I decide never to see him again. Facts are independently verifiable and static. So I can offer lots of facts about our meeting, where it was, who else was there but you won’t find it that interesting, because you aren’t looking for facts. You are looking for the Truth About John Lash. But what is Truth? Would you recognize it if it didn’t conform to your expectations?
It is curious that there is no universally accepted definition of Truth. Some people take that to mean that Truth does not exist. If you are one of those people, don’t waste your time reading any further as you are already lost. Truth is most often described by what it is not: not error, not deception, not self-contradictory. Truth must be factually correct, but comprises of another quality in addition to the facts. That quality rests in the capacity of the witness to perceive the Truth. In looking for the Truth About John Lash, you are in reality looking for the perceptions of a sane human witness, who is not lying or communicating with deception and whose words other sane human witnesses can corroborate.
That said, the notion that Truth is a noun is itself a deception. Consider the legal oath: “I swear by Almighty God to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.” Yet the words of the witness are not ‘the truth’ until determined to be so by the judge and jury, based on their perceptions of the witness, the circumstances, the verifiable facts and corroborating testimony from other witnesses. Truth functions as a dynamic modality, rather than an inactive noun. As such, it operates through the normal senses, observation etc. and through the mirroring attention of two or more human witnesses who want ‘to truth’.
So, in exploring the Truth About John Lash, I will describe my perceptions based on my interactions with the man and his work, which is grounded in the mirroring function that operates between us. As you read these words, you are making judgments based on your perceptions, which reflects your mirroring function too. In order for a mirror to function properly, it must be clean. We clean the mirroring function by examining our beliefs, biases, habits and behaviours and replacing those that we don’t like anymore. It is a totally subjective process that always delivers clarity, nonetheless. And there is no end to it. It becomes a new habit to be refined and replaced and through this process the mirroring function is honed and sharpened. However, failure to engage in this process means that your mirroring function is distorted by the beliefs, biases, habits and behaviours that were instilled in you by others. What effect do you think this has on your ability to perceive Truth? And what happens when you encounter something or some one that does not conform to your preconceived notions of Truth?
I was not Jew-wise before encountering John’s work and, like many other people growing up in a city had Jewish friends, who were good people. I researched the Holocaust issue before meeting him and saw that the much-touted murder of six million Jews is a total fabrication. You must do this research yourself in order to discover Truth for yourself and no one can do this for you because the whole fabric of our modern society is woven from the holocaust lie and you are entrained into it until you break free. You break free through questioning and research that enable you ‘to Truth’ and the process of ‘truthing’ unlocks your potential, which is suppressed by the lies we live by.
When I decided to meet John, Truth was guiding me to a path that I wasn’t sure I wanted to take. It was uncomfortable. I have Jewish friends. I wasn’t sure I was strong enough to take action against those who are responsible for so much suffering, deliberately inflicted. What about my friends? They are not evil. I wasn’t sure that John had anything useful to offer on the subject of eliminating social evil, let alone whether those solutions lived up to the promise of his other work. I went to visit John to see if he was just blowing smoke, or whether he had anything real to offer me on my path.
The Truth About John Lash is measured in how his words and actions operate within the lives of those with whom he interacts. My life has been enriched through knowing him and his work and I am one of many. Enmeshing my life within The Terma of Gaia Awakening that John uniquely brought to the planet has given me focus within a framework and a modus operandi that enable me to live to the fullness of my potential everyday. This includes facing the evil-doers and finding the strength and means to confront them, without losing sight of the breath-taking Beauty of life. My trepidation has turned to pleasure as I discover how I can direct the Rage of the Planetary Animal Mother through my bond with Her and my place in the Thunderbird Formation of the Kalika War Party. I have made new friends and tested the limits of other friendships – no bad thing!
The critical point for most people is the acceptance of the fact that all of the problems we face in the world today hinge on the issue of the holocaust. One of the individuals active in the hate campaign against John told me in an email exchange that he is “Not going to argue the number of Jews killed by Nazis. It’s John’s rhetoric and the rhetoric of his followers towards the Jews now that bothers me. Cults need enemies.” What a neat little soft-shoe shuffle with a do-si-do this is. First, refuse to engage in any discussion of the facts, (shuffle-shuffle). Then complain that you don’t like the language that John and ‘his followers’ use to call out the perpetrators of the alleged crime that you refuse to investigate. (One step forward, one step back – is it a lie, is it not a lie? You’ll never know unless you look, will you?) And finally, let’s make John the problem, because he is a cult-leader and needs to create an enemy to justify his position? (Twist around a back to where you started – not going anywhere fast.) Does this look like the reasoning of an individual who is capable of perceiving the Truth about John’s character?
You must search for the Truth and face it, no matter how ugly, in order to hone your mirroring function.
Moving on……..Let’s talk about ‘hate speech’ for a moment. Many people seem to have a problem with John’s so-called hate speech. That is when he talks about hating the self-selected Zionists and their goyim collaborators who have declared their intent to kill off most of us and enslave the rest. There are three issues here I’d like to address, briefly:
The psychological purpose of hate
The function of hate speech in society
The liberal double standard regarding hate
Hate is a natural emotion that arises when one is confronted by some one who is doing or has done you or your loved ones harm, or is preventing you from doing something you must do. Problems arise when emotions are repressed, not when they are expressed. Repressed emotions weaken the immune system and ultimately lead to the inability to act rationally.
To repress our hatred for oppressors, predators and violators of humanity is to deny us the strength and courage to deal with them. Human animals are innately good, except for the 5-10% of psychopaths, pedophiles and predators. Our goodness prevents us from enacting the ultimate sanction, the taking of a life, against another unless we are driven by personal hatred.
Hate cannot be faked. It is like a compass needle pointing directly to your enemy, so that you can take appropriate action to protect yourself and what you love.
Hate speech in a stable society functions as a safety valve, letting people know that a boundary has been breached. In most cases the expression of hate will only ‘hurt feelings’ and not lead to instability in the community, provided that free speech is allowed for all members of society.
Today, in Europe, we have the situation where non-natives are allowed to express their hate for white European natives, but we are prohibited from expressing our hate for the invaders. As above, it is the repression of the hate denies the community the ability to resolve any problems in their early stages. The self-healing balance of the community is weakened by the repression of the native population and outbursts will become progressively more violent.
The liberal double standard on hate speech means that their ‘hate speech’ against anyone who disagrees with them is acceptable because it is ‘for the greater good,’ because those who disagree with them are expressing hate for the wrong reasons and this is not to be tolerated. Don’t hate yourselves liberals, you are as flawed as the rest of us!
John expresses his hate and describes hate and its purpose in his own words: to protect what you love. This cannot drive anyone to hate, because hate doesn’t work that way. John is not doing and has never done anything to incite hatred. However, natural hate arising when one is under attack cannot be repressed, no matter how many laws are passed. The issue for everyone is to make sure that any hate is directed towards the correct target. Conversely, if you do not have any reason to feel hate in your own life, long may that last. But how can you possibly justify denying others their hate?
Then there is the cult issue. Anyone who bothers to read any of John’s work will see that everything he says is the complete antithesis of any cult. What cult explains the importance of thinking for yourself, following your own desires and has a Terma, not a leader, as the guru?
The Truth About John Lash is that he is a counter-culture genius whose life’s work has been dedicated to recovering the genius potential for humanity to live co-creatively with the in-dwelling Divinity of the Earth. This is no small undertaking and his work is robust and will stand the test of time, long after his petty enemies have drowned in their own bile. I know him to be a man of great integrity. He is generous, courageous, humble, ruthless and totally transparent. His character is absolutely consistent with his work; he walks the talk.
You, gentle reader, must make your own judgment. However, if you really want to discover The Truth About John Lash, look for it in his work and what that inspires in you. If you are a rational human animal who is able to appreciate Beauty you will discover the Truth for yourself.
A definition of a Pagan from the Pagan Federation: A follower of a polytheistic or pantheistic nature-worshipping religion.
‘Theos” is a masculine Greek noun used as a reference for God, meaning the male ‘Father God.’ Pantheists consider God to be the living universe, which would make the universe and everything in it male; clearly incorrect.
Polytheism refers to the belief in and worship of many gods, which can be male or female, a bit of a catch-all, anything goes option for the liberal pagan of today.
I would define myself more correctly as a Sophianic Animist, but that wouldn’t mean much to most people. This is how John Lash has described Sophianic Animism:
Here is a provisional definition of animism: the experience of the natural world as alive, and interactive with all that lives, rather than merely the inert setting for life. Animism is a way of seeing and feeling how nature displays animation. All children are natural-born animists. They sense clouds and waters and wind to be alive, creature-like, with no distinction from their own sense of being so. To them even dirt and rocks are animated. Before modern times, indigenous peoples around the world encountered nature animistically and interacted with the elements, the sky, water, and earth, through the imagined media of personified spirits of many kinds. They realized that the world they inhabit is a living presence, not merely scenery, not dead matter, not an inert backdrop like a stage set. For them it was not believed to be a living presence. Not merely seen as if it is one. But known directly, sensorially, and empathically, to be such.
In short, animism is not the belief that nature is alive, but the direct engaged perception of how it is so.
To say that the earth is a superorganism means simply that it behaves like a living creature, exhibiting mind, purpose, expression. This is one step short of saying that the planet you inhabit actually is, and acts like, some kind of animal. The view that planets are animated or animal-like was widespread in former times. Much evidence of it survives in alchemical writings from the Middle Ages. Mystics who observed nature in altered states called the encompassiong consciousness of the animal-planet anima mundi, the world-soul. In many respects, alchemy anticipated the Gaia hypothesis with its identification of a single integral planetary consciousness. Obviously, the earth-animal Sophia has no head or limbs similar to other animals in the habitat she provides. She resembles more a multicellular organism, like an amoeba, a massive protoplasmic creature in globular form, having an aquaeus terrestrial body and an atmospheric skin.
Sophianic animists call this spherical creature the “planetary animal mother.” PAM, for short. With this unique spin, a simple turn of language, humans living on earth have a way to address the earth in its totality. The Sophianic path reclaims animism and places it on the planetary scale. Animism in the 21st century emerges into a genuinely planetary perspective, as never before — except, it would appear, among the ancient seers who produced the Gnostic teachings in the first place. It also presents another striking feature absent in local animistic cultures of the past: a coherent and comprehensive narrative for the living planet.”
I experience the earth and all of nature as alive and I’ve found that the Fallen Goddess Scenario and the Terma of Gaia Awakening correspond to and enrich my experience. My experience is not so much about belief regarding the attributes of an imaginary creature, but a process of experimentation in interacting with the living planet as a single entity, as originally described by the Gnostics. She has many names, many moods and Her own Story in which humans can play a part, if they choose.
I started this post on the first day of the Matangi shift of 2016. Now confirmed by Javier in Alicante, with his sighting of the Matangi moon shown below.
What does this signify?
“Unlike the other devatas who receive offerings of ripe fruit and fresh flowers, Matangi is uniquely offered leftovers and other cast-off items, things left out, unsorted, unpaired socks, string too short to save, loose change. Her offerings may also include things considered to be polluted or spoiled, like spoiled food. In the Tantric sense, she represents candala the inner heat or “fire from within” that burns away all impurities, all that is inessential to the full awakening of ruthless warrior power………..
Matangi is the voodoo queen of the Shakti Cluster. Her Haitian name is Erzulie Dantor, a figure loosely associated with the “black virgins” of pre-Christian lore. She is a protector of women, especially mulattos, and avenger of all who have been raped and discarded, cheated and wronged. One of the most potent female figures connected with the loas, the daimonic powers that possess human bodies as a rider seats a horse. She is also famous for being the patron witch of New Orelans………..
As voodoo was directed against the predators of the native Haitians, so it may be said that the supernatural magic of Kali is now directed against the globalist fascist elite. This is the power to avenge those who have been wronged, polluted by the toxics potions of the predators, left out and left over, discarded. Kali herself is the exterminator of behavioural clones, the archontified population living in terror of those who reign over them by victim-perpetrator collusion, the rule of deceit. But Matangi is specifically the terminator of deceit and exerminator of the deceitful, including those in complicity with perpetration of social evil, who far outnumber the originators, strategists, or masterminds. For instance, the media whores, talking heads, and shills who lavishly propagated the cover-up of 9/11. Those who to this day protest in the public airwaves, “But why would the government lie to us?”, when they know better…….
In the Mahavidya Matangi we may imagine a divine embodiment of the human capacity to detect and dispel deceit. She represents one of the most powerful and exceptional attributes of the human species.
As an animal gifted with imagination in a measure that exceeds any other terrestrial creature, the human being must be able to discern deceit, the destructive bent of the power of imagination, in order to assume full responsibility for using that magnificent gift correctly. Matangi is that capacity to discern the working of deceit, and as such she might rightfully be “worshipped”—a term I normally reject—because that capacity is a divine and salvific endowment as good as anything a god can confer, as mighty and magical as any god or goddess. This capacity of humankind is worthy of the highest respect, even reverence.
Matangi is one of the Mahavidyas said to confer the power to kill with a look, quaintly misunderstood in folklore as the “evil eye.” But could there also be an eye against evil? A killing glance to take down the intraspecies predators? If there is some kind of evil magic dominating the planet, as the growing perception around 9/11 seems to indicate, where is the countermagic?
I sound a strong alert not to attribute a “lethal weapon” of magical or occult power to the globalist criminal elite without allowing that honest, kind, well-intentioned people hold the counterpart, occult power to oppose and defeat their game.
To reach the power of the killing gaze, look steadily, nakedly, honestly into the mirror of evil until you see your innate goodness reflected there. The mirror itself confers that killing power. There is “sacred balance” (as noted by Wade Davis) in how evil contributes to the recognition of the good: to be precise, self-recognition. We do not need evil to be good as human beings, but if it is there, presented to us, mirrored in our own species, its presence can support recognition of the goodness unique to each individual of the self-same, high-risk species. This recognition is a supreme and sacred commitment that cannot be sustained, I would guess, without a divine or superhuman referent to offset the daimonic psychological inflation it can induce. Matangi is such a referent. She would be the supernatural fail-safe that allows the human mind to see as evil sees without succumbing to self-deception.
The eighteen power-nodes of the Shakti Cluster are human capacities, siddhis of occult potency, conferred by Gaia into the transpersonal life of those who call her attention and hold her gaze. The devatas and dakinis are conscient nodes of Gaia awakening, flashpoints of lucid dreaming at which she identifies and recognizes individual characters who enact her dream by consistently showing up in it. Her co-witnesses in a massive surge of planetary awakening.
There is no viable solution to the problem of evil in human behavior without an intimate supernatural connection to the planetary mother animal. “
I felt Matangi coming on strong yesterday, with the fire within that had me prowling around and spring cleaning. In a playfully, cat like manner, She drew me to two tracks when I was looking for some music to download:
The Cat Empire, Wild Animals
The Cat Empire, Prophets in the Sky
The sunset crescent will not be visible here until tomorrow, at the earliest, and maybe not even then as it is likely to be raining, but the shift has now been confirmed by others. We watched the sunrise crescent dissolve the predawn morning of the 7th February, drinking Kali’s Elixir. I find that this simple ritual binds me into the rhythms and moods of the earth. It makes my life easier and magical.
In a general sense, I see chaos looming and ask myself: am I doing enough to keep us safe and warn others? Sadly, the desire to remain ignorant cannot be overridden, except by the person holding that desire. A couple of weeks ago we found out that a friend is in hospital with a brain tumour. The problem started with a headache one week after a smart meter was installed on his house. Unsurprisingly, the doctors didn’t know the cause of the tumour, so we sent him some of the research showing how smart meters are now implicated in many brain cancers all over the world. We also gave the information to our neighbours and haven’t heard another word. It’s the same with chemtrails, vaccines, pharmaceuticals even GMOs in come cases. People will come up with all manner of imaginative excuses to avoid what they think they don’t want to know and that works well for the predators. What can I do about that?
As I’ve moved deeper into the Dreaming of the Planetary Animal Mother it has become easier for me to see problems and solutions, as it does for everyone. At the retreat last November in Andalucia, my vow was: to act ruthlessly and with consummate playfulness in seeking out and destroying my enemies, so that the power of Her Dreaming and the truth of Her Story are recognized by all who know me. How do I do that from here? Well, that is what I’m in the process of discovering. This month I’m sensing that the Eye of Matangi will expose the game to the many human animals who are ready, willing and able to act and the killing power of Her mirroring attention will be activated.
Kalika Permaculture Politics
This week Greek farmers took to the streets to protest against higher taxes and pension reforms.
They have been duped by their government. Socialism is a front for communism, currently being acted out in Greece as Syriza, the puppet government of the European banking mafia, begins seizing control of the food, energy and resources of the people. The new tax reforms mean that farmers have to go into debt to run their farms and will get lower pensions on retirement. The Greek people are learning that the Syriza socialists were only pretending to serve the interests of the Greek people and were in reality only taking care of themselves by collaborating with the Jewish banksters – as has been always been the case with any so-called socialists who come to power.
Greek farmers are not rich. The average size of a farm in Greece is 4.9 hectares and the average farming family income is €12,000 per annum. Under the new laws half of this will be taken by taxes and contributions. This is Agenda 21 in action.
Farming here in northern Spain is similar to Greece, small subsistence farmers, not industrial farming and quite similar to permaculture in many ways, because it’s still very traditional. Permaculture is one route to finding your place in nature, going beyond growing food to consideration of the invisible structures that keep a community coherent and ecologically balanced. Permaculture is inherently political in the broadest sense and many permaculture activists are overtly politically motivated to change society in positive ways. If you are one of these people, perhaps you might find ‘Kalika Permaculture’ interesting. So, what is ‘Kalika Permaculture?’
Kalika permaculture is permaculture with an edge; that edge is the boost of the earth. Kalikas are devotees of Kali, the expression of the Rage of the Planetary Animal Mother. So I live according to the fundamental permaculture principles, I care for the land, I care for the people and I share any surplus – but I do not care for all people. I do not care for the agents of government who try and tell me what to do on my land, I do not care for the weather manipulators or the whores of biological warfare and GMO peddlers, with their vaccines and pharmaceuticals and I want to see them eliminated.
The permaculture philosophy will never gain traction within a socio-economic system created by Jewish-communist-supremacists hell-bent on claiming the earth for themselves. This system has to be destroyed, root and branch before it takes over the whole planet. It is no longer sufficient simply to explain the problems ad nauseam. We know what the problems are and we also know how to resolve most of them, but a certain group of psychopaths is preventing us from implementing those solutions. Anyone who spends a couple of hours researching beyond the mainstream into WHO has caused all the poverty, pollution, disease and unnecessary suffering to all forms of life across the entire planet will find that it all points to one specific group: the Zionist-communist-supremacists and their goyim collaborators. Now, I’m not claiming that I know how to deal with this group of demented psychopaths, but lets’s start by acknowledging that we know who they are, what they are planning and that they will never win. And do you know why they cannot win? It’s because they are afraid to get their hands dirty. They are afraid of Nature and so they should be.
In addition to creating the ‘fossil fuel scam’ and controlling the chemical and agriculture industries, the Rockefeller medical mafia have subverted the practice of medicine since the beginning of the twentieth century. Modern medicine has very little to do with health because John D. Rockefeller set up the industry for profit and social engineering, not because he cared about the health of the general population. Rockefeller medicine paved the way for the depopulation plans that are now rolling out through Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030.
John D. Rockefeller was the son of a snake oil salesman after all. The main purpose behind the philanthropy of Rockefeller and friends has always been social engineering and global population control, as proven by their actions. If they really wanted people of the earth to be healthy, then the medical system is an abysmal failure on their part.
The Rockefeller Medical Racket in America
In the early 1900s, John D. bought the American Medical Association so that he could control the licensing of physicians and train them into using pharmaceutical drugs produced from his oil and mining concerns. Natural practitioners were shut out and he generously funded hospitals, research institutes to work in partnership with the Rockefeller Foundation and the Rockefeller University, to ensure the propagation of the Rockefeller agenda.
“The Rockefeller Foundation’s mission, unchanged since 1913, is to improve the well-being of humanity around the world.”
James Corbett explains the history of the Rockefeller Medicine here:
Eustace Mullins identified the medical conspiracy against America in the early 1990s and discusses it here:
Fast-forward to today and the Zika virus is terrorizing the world, causing babies to be born with microcephaly, allegedly. But hang on a minute, why would an organisation intending ‘improve the well-being of humanity around the world’ patent a virus? The Rockefeller Foundation isolated the Zika virus in 1947 and is now one of the first organisations to be working on a vaccine for it. What a coincidence!
“As the global alarm continues to sound about the Zika virus, Sanofi ($SNY) said on Tuesday that it’s getting involved. In doing so, it became the first major pharmaceutical company to commit to Zika vaccine R&D, launching a program to develop a jab just after receiving the first regulatory approvals for its dengue shot.
The French pharma said it’ll seek to apply its research and infrastructure developed in its 20-year dengue vaccine pursuit to Zika, which is spread by the same species of mosquito. And, in speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Nicholas Jackson, Sanofi Pasteur‘s global head of research–who will lead the program–said “Theoretically, there could be some cross immunity.””
Follow the money. And look for the evidence. Most of these ‘pandemics’ are not real, but are cover-ups for other damage, such as geogengineering, GMOs and presticides, but who cares as long as the gravy train keeps rolling along. James Corbett and John Rappoport discuss the Zika phenomenon below.
Sanofi-Aventis is the parent company of Sanofi Paster, which is the largest vaccine manufacturer in the world. It is one of the companies in the Rockefeller pharmaceutical empire that was created after the German chemical company I.G. Farben was dismantled following the Nuremberg Trials.
Sanofi Pasteur, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Infectious Disease Research Institute (IDRI) have partnered to create the Global Health Vaccine Center of Innovation (GHVCI), a joint effort aimed at making a new, cheaper model for vaccines development. Their ‘philanthropy’ is shaping public opinion to create health interventions that follow their agendas.
“Philanthropic foundations, above all the Gates Foundation and earlier the Rockefeller Foundation, have been shaping global health policies not only through their direct grant-making but also through the provision of matching funds, the support of selected research programmes, the creation of global health partnerships with Foundation’s staff in their decision- making bodies, and by direct advocacy at the highest political level.”
“The Rockefeller Foundation, working with John D. Rockefeller Ill’s Population Council, the World Bank, the UN Development Program and the Ford Foundation, and others, had been working with the WHO (World Health Organization) for 20 years to develop an anti-fertility vaccine using tetanus, as well as with other vaccines.”
Most Brits are proud of the National Health Service and are oblivious to the fact that it is a Rockefeller/Fabian creation with a long-term goal of social control. The London School of Economics was home to the Fabian Society and according to the LSE website:
“Late 1920s/1930s – LSE received substantial funding from the Rockefeller Foundation and was described as ‘Rockefeller’s baby’. Areas supported included the construction of new facilities, research, professorships and general endowment. LSE’s relationship with Rockefeller continues to date, most recently having received support for the Global Civil Society programme within the Civil Society and Human Security Research Unit. “
William Beveridge “father of the welfare state” was director of the London School of Economics from 1919-1937 and David Rockefeller was a student in 1937. The Fabian Society was established in the 1880s for the purpose of subverting the existing order and establishing a Socialist World Government controlled by its leaders and by the financial interests associated with them. What set the Fabian Society apart from earlier Socialist organisations like the International Working Men’s Association, set up in 1864 by Karl Marx, was the method by which it sought to attain its objective. While other Socialists talked of revolution, the Fabians resolved to build Socialism gradually and by stealth.
The Fabians worked closely with the Rotshchilds and the Rockefellers, with Lord Arthur Balfour (the same Balfour who was instrumental in giving Palestine to the Zionists) connecting them to the British money. The Fabian Society created the Labour Party in 1893 and still controls it to this day. Their aim was to capture and control all British citizens “for its profit and their own good” (Fabian News, Sept. 1897). For this purpose and in addition to politics, it set out to control education, culture, economy, the legal system and even medicine and religion. Fabians set up the UN and have always maintained close connections with the Bilderberg Group and the Council on Foreign Relations.
The Rockefeller Foundation began funding British medical schools, such as the London School of Tropical Medicine and University College in London, shortly after it was founded. Abraham Flexner visited Britain first in 1910 and again in 1921 with the president of the Rockefeller Foundation George Vincent, to follow up on their investment. Flexner authored the Flexner Report for the Carnegie Foundation in the US in 1910. This established the control model for the American Medical Association from which it gained sole responsibility for the training and licensing of physicians and excluded all natural healers. This is when the medical profession began to focus on procedures that profited the Rockefellers. Britain established the Haldane Commission on medical reform in 1913 following the US model.
Rockefeller medicine and the philanthropic tools for eliminating competition and controlling society were already well entrenched in Britain by the time the Beveridge report was commissioned. The idea of ‘free health’ along with a benefits system, to provide ‘social security’ so that the population would be protected from the ‘cradle to the grave’ came out of the Beveridge Report of 1942. The stated focus of the report was how to rebuild Britain after WWII, the sub-text being that the restructure would primarily benefit those who had amassed enormous wealth through the industrial revolution. William Beveridge, a lawyer and a judge in the Indian Civil Service, was highly influenced by the Fabians and their friends in high places when he recommended that the government should find ways of fighting the five ‘Giant Evils’ of ‘Want, Disease, Ignorance, Squalor and Idleness’.
The Rockefeller medical business was never created ‘to improve the well-being of humanity around the world’ and despite the benefits that many NHS patients claim, the long-term prognosis for the British people is not good. The pharmaceutical industry is not a ‘health industry’, but an investment business that thrives on the continuation and expansion of diseases.The Rockefeller model for the NHS keeps their drug business profitable without any competition. Natural healing modalities have been sidelined and remain underfunded and undeveloped, despite the fact that John D. Rockefeller preferred homeopathy for his own treatment. He died at the age of 97 with his personal homeopathic physician, Dr. H.L. Merryday of Daytona Beach, in attendance.
Galium aparine has many common names including cleavers, clivers, goosegrass, catchweed, stickyweed, robin-run-the-hedge, sticky willy, sticky willow, velcro weed and it is an excellent spring tonic. It grabs your attention and hangs on, quite literally, when you first venture into the garden after a winter absence. Its fresh, clean, greenness oozes such vitality that when I first noticed it here I knew it must be good for something. It appears here after the winter rain and seems to love growing on piles of rotten wood waiting for a bonfire, as well as the beds that have woodchips on them.
I looked into it and what struck me was that it was good for the lymphatic system and removing toxins from the blood and intestines. This feels right because the little leaves are covered in tiny bristles and I can imagine them acting like scrubbing brushes, cleaning out any debris and stagnation. I feel sluggish after winter and cleavers helps with the internal spring clean and getting the bodily fluids moving again.
Health is about maintaining optimum balance throughout the mind-body system, homeostasis, if you like. It’s very difficult to maintain that balance if you are living in an unhealthy environment, because nature informs your body; everything from circadian rhythms to Schumann resonances and seasonal changes are involved in maintaining homeostasis. In toxic environments, like cities, these signals are blocked by unnatural electromagnetic fields and the nervous system and immune system become very confused. EMFs are slowly becoming recognised as the underlying cause of most diseases. Conversely, once yo get out of the city it is very easy to plug back into the Planetary Animal Mother and to discover that She really does provide everything you need. All you have to do is pay attention.
In my post on St John’s Wort, I mentioned that it is more critical than ever to take care of the nervous system. My simplistic view is that the Earth is electrical, the Universe is electrical and so are we and that our transmutation to Anthropos 11 will happen first within the nervous system – if your nerves can handle it. So, imagine my surprize when I looked up Mathew Wood on Cleavers in The Earthwise Herbal:
“Although most herbalists use Galium for the lymphatics and kidneys, I have gotten on a different track, using it for the nerves. I have had many remarkable cures and palliations with cleavers in the neurological sphere. It is beneficial in “gatherings of the nerves” and inflammation of the nerve endings (neurofibrositis). It is indicated for oversensitivity of the nerve endings, tickling and itchy skin.”
So, cleavers supports the nervous system. No wonder I like it.
I use fresh cleavers in a morning juice, before coffee or anything else for the first month in which it appears.
My cleavers juice recipe, for two people:
2-3 crisp apples (depending on size)
2 sticks of celery
one thumb-sized piece of fresh ginger, peeled
two handfuls of freshly cut cleavers
Juice and drink immediately. It is delicious and zingy.
Cleavers is diuretic, part of its cleansing properties, so it’s better suited for the mornings. It also contains caffeine and the seed pods are said to be a palatable alternative to coffee, if you can be bothered to collect enough of them to dry, roast and ground. I don’t think I’ll be doing that.
It is also cooling and helps dispel damp heat associated with urinary tract infections, chronic skin infections and lymphatic disorders.
My main reason for writing this blog is that I can imagine what the world would be like if more of us were free to follow our instincts and desires. I live that way myself, to the best of my ability, and I want to engage with more people who are ready, willing and able to do the same. The issues I write about are things that come up in my life, what I think about them, what action I’m taking and what I’m learning in the process. The pleasure of writing and sharing is enough in itself, but I also like to think that I might be throwing gas on the fire that cremates a few sacred cows into extinction, here and there. This is one of those endangered creatures.
Oil is not a fossil fuel
Oil is not a fossil fuel made from the bodies of ancient dinosaurs and petrified forests. It is a mineral and it is replenished from within the earth. Scientists working for the Rockefellers invented the term ‘fossil fuel’ in1892. The ‘oil is a fossil fuel’ scam is running out on empty.
This is how it started: Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty: The Origin of Fossil Fuel & Peak Oil
The Russians have known this for decades because the former Soviet Union tasked its top scientists to identify the source of oil, during the isolationist years of the Cold War. In 1956, Russian scientist Professor Vladimir Porfir’yev announced that “crude oil and natural petroleum gas have no intrinsic connection with biological matter originating near the surface of the earth. They are primordial [originating with the earth’s formation] materials which have been erupted from great depths.”
He said oil doesn’t come from anything biologic, not, as conventional wisdom dictates, from the fossilized remains of dinosaurs and/or ancient plant matter. It comes from very deep in the earth and is created by a biochemical reaction that subjected hydrocarbons (elements having carbon and hydrogen) to extreme heat and intense pressure during the earth’s formation.
Russians referred to this oil (any oil, really) as “abiotic oil” because it is not created from the decomposition of biological life forms, but rather from the chemical process continually occurring inside the earth.
Shortly after the Russians discovered this, they started drilling ultra-deep wells and finding oil at 30,000 and 40,000 feet below the earth’s surface. This is far below the depth at which organic matter can be found, which is 16-18,000 feet.
According to Fletcher Prouty, geology books stated that oil was a fossil fuel and this is what was taught to geologists, so they believed it to be true. Another example of how these parasites lied to gain control of the world’s energy system. Up until recently, a Google search would always produce results that told you exactly how oil, a ‘fossil fuel’ was made from dead dinosaurs and a scarce commodity. The fact that oil was being drilled at significantly lower levels than detritus from any living thing could possibly be found was conveniently ignored. Now, there are two kinds of oil apparently; biotic (from dead matter) and abiotic from naturally occurring geological processes. The narrative is now out of control.
Once it was no longer possible to hide the fact that oil is abiotic and therefore not a finite resource the scarcity pricing model and peak oil scam, that kept oil prices artificially high, became harder to maintain. Enter man-made global warming, zero carbon emissions and Agenda 21. These despicable creatures, the Rockefellers, Rothschilds and friends have manipulated the global energy and financial markets for the past century, cheating their way into creating and controlling the energy and finance industries. There is no ‘natural’ pricing on any globally traded commodity and oil is the most widely traded global commodity. They were instrumental in moving the US off the gold standard and into the petrodollar in 1971 and might well have stolen the gold that used to be in Fort Knox.
Brother Nathanael explains the petrodollar scam, that is now breaking down, very succinctly.
As I’m writing this is late January, the price of oil is still falling, but the dollar is being propped up by Jacob Jew-Lew and the Deep State Exchange Stabalization Fund. More on this here:
America’s Most Closely Guarded Secret: The Covert Fund That Controls It All — Rob Kirby
The world is currently awash with oil and it’s not going to run out. What we’re seeing now is the next stage in the game, in which the Jooman Parasites intend to bankrupt the competition and claim the assets in lieu of debt. Saudi Arabia is looking like a ‘jew-sy prospect’ in that regard. No doubt the global economy is about to be re-arranged, but the enemy is not in control of the situation.
In a world that wasn’t ravaged by the toxic marriage of debt and war, a low price on a commodity as essential as oil would be a good thing, but in the upside-down world of today this is not the case. Oil producing countries need to sell their oil at a high rate in order to finance their Rothschilds Central Bank created debt. In order to prevent countries from getting out of debt by producing other goods to sell the Jooman Parasites have engineered climate change/global warming. The Climate Change Conspiracy, a Rockefeller initiative, demands phasing out fossil fuels – when there is no such thing as fossil fuels – to save the planet. Do not be fooled by the ‘save the earth’ clamour of the communist-liberal environmentalists. In just a few hours you will find that the scientific data are a shambles, corrupted and misrepresented at almost every level and for so long as geo-engineering is not considered to be part of man-made climate change, you know you are looking at another scam. If you have any doubts at all, just look at who is behind all these problems, climate change/global warming, energy/oil and finance and ask yourself what they could have done with all their fabulous wealth if they were really acting for the good of life on this planet..
From the Gaian perspective, the oil industry is a dirty, greedy polluter and totally unnecessary for the well-being and prosperity of humanity. I think that Gaia-Sophia has had enough of a few infected parasites plundering the wealth of Her Body and using it to control, enslave and destroy the sovereign people of the Earth. Perhaps Her original intention was for oil to be a lubricant, which makes a lot of sense. However, She is not going to solve this problem for us. Those are not the terms of the experiment here and, ultimately, the future of humanity depends upon us recovering our sovereignty and discovering our genius. At the same time as trying to enforce a zero-emissions straitjacket on human ingenuity, these parasites have ruthlessly suppressed all alternative energy and clean technology devices for decades. I suspect that this is about to change, because it is only at crisis point that we will see the solutions.
The key survival tactic of a parasite is stealth, well, that game is up, isn’t it?
