This is a short talk, an account of a dream in which I received the instruction for psychoacoustic activation of the nodal points on the earth grid. It is an addendum to Spelling Out Electrosmog and describes a better way of activating the grid. (I think I might have said psychoactive activation at the end of the talk instead of psychoacoustic, so I just wanted to correct that, as no psychoactive guides are necessary for this activation.)
A slight play on words, but a way of describing a recent experience that I want to signal, so you can recognize it when it comes your way. Our Aeonic Mother is using this cosmic force to get Her experiment back on track, as events get to the point of ‘supersaturation’ when you ‘just can’t do it anymore’ you can bet that the situation is about to change dramatically, and delightfully for those of us who really do live Her Story.
This recording is a bit rambling and unedited – it has several pauses while I gathered my thoughts. I’m trusting that I’ve addressed the main points one way or another…..
Whatever the weather, our day starts with walking the dogs and (sometimes with cats in tow) and foraging for weeds. We are lucky to live in an area where there is no intensive farming, no crop spraying and lots of hedgerows, meadows and verges, where the wild plants flourish. Our own land was not occupied for 40 years before we moved here so, although it is hard work clawing out a few patches for cultivation, at least I know that our soil is relatively uncontaminated. In the height of summer, when it can be very hot and dry, there’s not usually so much to be had from the wild, but we usually have plenty in our garden then.
I started juicing two years ago in spring when the cleavers came out en masse and almost begged to be juiced. I bought a Lexen Manual Juicer, as the electric one some one left us is so big and noisy and I have Luddite leanings. What a joy this little machine is. It makes beautiful, rich and slick juice and is so satisfying to use – and easy to clean. I much prefer it to the electric version. Chopping the plants and fruits and pushing them into the machine and watching the juice and pulp come out is a kind of meditation. I’m still juicing every morning, because it really does taste that good……and I’m beginning to learn why it’s so good.
Wild juice recipe
3 sticks of celery
Large thumb-sized piece of ginger
Handful of coriander/cilantro leaves
And several handfuls of one or more of the following:
Cabbage (red or green)
Lemon balm (not too much as it’s very strong)
Mallow (not too much as it’s very gooey)
Milk thistle leaves
Radish leaves –
Yarrow (not too much as it’s pucker-power astringent)
For our tastes the apple, celery, ginger and coriander/cilantro is the basic blend and then whatever greens are available. This juicer prefers hard fruits, technically it’s a wheat grass juicer, so anything too mushy doesn’t work so well. We grow broccoli, kale, swiss chard and cabbage for most of the year, hopefully the ginger, coriander/cilantro and apples will make it this year and we find the ‘weeds’ on our walks.
We’re enjoying an abundance cleavers, clover, dandelion and milk thistle leaves at the moment.
Biological power plants
The human body is a biological power plant, as it transduces multiple energy sources for different systems and processes. Oxygen is used as the primary fuel to break down food, carbohydrates, fats, minerals and vitamins in order to power movement and essential physiological processes, such as digestion, respiration, mitosis and repair. The nervous system is considered to be primarily electrical, driven by the polarizing actions of the sodium-potassium pump in response to stimuli and then back to the resting state after external stimulation. The nervous system uses about one third of the body’s overall energy capacity, regardless of physical activity or lifestyle choices. Except in cases of injury, poisoning or chronic illness, most ‘nervous conditions’ can be significantly remediated through diet. However, more recently some researchers are considering that the nervous system is powered by light. And what about the senses????
The human body also creates energy. I cranked my manual juicer with kinetic energy, not hard enough to make me sweat (thankfully), but just being alive creates thermal energy. And then there is light. All life forms radiate light, which is electromagnetic energy. Some electromagnetic energy is visible to the naked eye, like rainbows or laser beams, but most isn’t.
Your body grows new retinal cells every two days, new skin in six weeks, a new liver over an eight week period and new nerve cells in a matter of months. So what stops us from regenerating and why do we all show signs of ageing, with advancing years? Those are big questions, with many answers, but in biological terms your body needs three things:
the right raw materials from which to construct new cells;
sufficient cellular energy to enable it to use the raw materials;
a working communication system, so it knows what to do and when;
a guiding narrative that attunes you to health and regeneration.
If any one of these three components is depleted, as they mostly are, you don’t heal and regenerate as you were designed to do and eventually you succumb to total systemic failure – otherwise known as death. Additionally, cells, systems, habits and even civilizations all go through a natural process of apoptosis, signified by chaos, and that’s one way of looking at the current conditions. The question is: what do you do about it? You can just find yourself a safe haven and ride out the rest of you life as best you can and there’s plenty to be said for that approach, I nearly ended up there myself. But funnily enough, when I found my safe haven, here in Galicia, I began to perceive and experience life in a very different way. Life gushes, sprouts and oozes through every pore in the earth and atmosphere here and I want more of it. This leads back to the plants, the wild plants and weeds……
Have you ever stopped to consider why you need to put so much time and effort into weeding the garden? The weeds always win! They are stronger, better adapted to the environment and they are prolific, whatever the conditions, the weeds survive and return more quickly than cultivated plants – they are the power plants. That’s because they grow as Nature intended, they haven’t been hybridized for yield benefits or so they can be transported over long distances, irradiated and still look tasty on a grocery store shelf. Domestic vegetables are designed for profit and wild plants are designed for life. Wild plants contain at least 5 – 10 times more nutrients, vitamins, enzymes, phytochemicals and biophotons than supermarket vegetables. 15 grams of nettles contain far more nutrients than 100 grams of healthy romaine lettuce. I’ve long suspected that one of the reasons I didn’t do well on a vegetarian diet was lack of minerals. I’m very reluctant to use supplements, as I regard them as suspiciously as I do every other processed ‘food – made for profit, rather than health. Several studies have shown that the mineral content of wild edible plants is higher than their commercial equivalents, which stands to reason if the wild plants are collected from soil that has not been depleted through industrial farming methods. However, there is another reason, that is even more significant and that is light.
Biophotons, that is light emitted by life, were discovered in 1923 by Russian scientist Professor Alexander Gurvich, who originally named them “mitogenetic rays”. German biophysicist Fritz-Albert Popp proved their existence in 1974 and subsequently developed biophoton theory based on observation to explain their possible biological role and the ways in which they may control biochemical processes, growth, differentiation etc. This work is now continued in a network of research laboratories in more than 10 countries, although it remains outside of make-believe mainstream science.
The radiant light emanating from animals and plants that is too faint to be seen by the naked eye. It would be like seeing a lit candle in the dark from 20km away, but it has been repeatedly photographed using the Popp designed photomultiplier devices. In humans it appears to be most concentrated in the forehead, the throat and the chest area.
According to Popp, living cells and DNA use electromagnetic waves to communicate and transfer information. Substances and unnatural electromagnetic fields, disrupt the natural cycles of light emission causing loss of coherence and poor intracellular communication, so that the body is unable to generate new healthy cells. For example, Popp found that cancer cells were not attuned to the rest of the body ie. out of synch, dancing to a different tune.
A biophoton is always emitted before each of the appproximately 100,000 biochemical reactions that occur per second in every cell in the human body. There is no biochemical reaction that takes place without the preceding biophoton signal, which is why it is considered to be the ‘steering system’ for all the biochemistry that takes place in the body. The communication system of the body is more akin to fibre optics than copper wires.
I’ll be posting more on biophotons, DNA, regeneration and communication another day. Meanwhile, if you can find a very local source of edible wild plants, give wild juicing a try and I’m sure you’ll notice the benefits in a few weeks. Popp considers the biophoton content to be of far greater importance than just the nutrient or caloric content of a food freshly picked, as it brings coherence back into the body. Health and regeneration is just not possible without communication and coherence. Eating plants with a high biophoton content helps correct the deficit caused by electromagnetic pollution and reconnects you with nature – another part of the story. Wild edible leafy green plants have the highest biophoton content of all foods available, as the ancient alchemists surely knew.
The goal of Gaian Alchemy is the completion of the Great Work, as explained in an earlier post: Regeneration; orientation to Gaian Alchemy. There is no completion date, of course, but we are in the completion timeframe and the conditions are damn near perfect. The ancient alchemists had to generate the state of chaos needed to make matter mutable, but those conditions are now generously provided, saving us valuable energy. The framework, tools and clues are in place and now it is just a matter of application and dedication to the pleasures of discovery.
Stages and Phases
The Gaian Alchemy Retreats will address two core themes, Regeneration and Time by following the three main stages to the alchemical process. We don’t know how many stages the original alchemists used in their experiments, it could have been four in some cases, seven in others, but I’m following the model described by John Lash in the Course in Gaian Alchemy that he taught in the 80s and working with three. These are:
Formation and Fixation
With regard to phasing: the two Gaian Alchemy Retreats this year will concentrate on Formation and Fixation within the context of Regeneration. I’m planning for next year’s retreats to address Formation and Fixation with regard to Time. After that, those strands will come together, as appropriate, for the Coniunctio followed by (trumpet fanfare, if you will) the Magnificatio, “The expansion of consciousness to encompass the realm of Mythical Beings and the expansion of the senses.” JLL. I’m anticipating that the work will grow organically, like mycelium, with fruits in different locations and I’d like to see new ways of working together emerge. I’ve had to create some sort of structure, so I can envisage how the Work might progress, but I’m not intending to teach Gaian Alchemy as a set course – it’s much more about setting people up to take the work forward in their own way and supporting the Work as best we can.
Formation and Fixation
The Formation and Fixation stage could be described as the process of recovering the memories of where your senses originated and how to use them correctly. We don’t use our senses correctly, for the most part, because the theatre of human experience has been constructed to put the human at the centre of any experience, but not in any interactive relationship with anything else! For example, you might look at a tree or the stars, but there is no ordinarily accepted recognition of the fact that the tree and the stars are also interacting with you via that look. The observer effect acknowledges that observing an object, situation or phenomenon necessarily changes it, but it does not consider the possibility that the observer is also effected by the interaction. This two-way effect is not imaginary, even though it might not be measurable by instruments. There are biochemical and electromagnetic exchanges that occur between all living things, including the earth and cosmos, that the alchemists knew by other names and portrayed in their illustrations. The modern human is no longer able to use his/her senses to this degree of subtlety, however, we can choose to recover our senses.
The process of Formation and Fixation enables you to experience how you are located within the atmospheric membrane of the earth and how your senses were designed for interaction with all other forms of life on the planet and the plenary sovereign intelligence of the planet itself. The format of learning in the retreats will be some formal group teaching and discussion, followed by experiential exercises and one-on-one coaching sessions, for individual goal setting and support. There will also be a group task/project involving direct sensory and imaginative interaction with the land. The structure is intended to support ‘playful learning’, in a relaxed way that accommodates individual drives, talents and expectations (including my own) as much as possible.
The topics to be covered will include:
the three dimensions of space (enclosing space, surface space and enclosed space)
human identity and the Fallen Goddess Scenario as the guiding narrative
the human effect, intention, reason and desire
the process of recognition
kundalini and the grounding mechanism
DNA, biophotons and the challenges of time and light
I’m anticipating that what you’ll learn here will enable you to begin the process of regeneration, because this has been my experience. The ‘remembering’ of how to use your senses correctly and interactively with nature, within a guiding narrative that explains both earth and human origins AND is open-ended, makes if possible to use your imagination/consciousness fully, without falling into the trap of the ‘fantastic imagination’. The fantastic or fantasy imagination could be described as that which does not align with the dreaming of the earth. My experience is: fix the senses and the imagination follows.
This is an orientation piece for Gaian Alchemy. I want to explain why I’m focusing on what seems to be such an arcane subject, as the world spirals into chaos, and why I think it’s relevant, even essential, for these times in which regeneration is happening concurrently with destruction.
I hold myself out to be a witch, a healer, a kalika, a teacher and a bog-standard alchemist in the way all true women are. I have the burning desire to know how humans interact, physiologically, psychologically and emotionally with the natural and Supernatural world and to use that knowledge wisely. My motivation with Gaian Alchemy is to learn how the mind/body system works interactively with our Planetary Animal Mother, so as to command Her Power to live in ultimate freedom. I want freedom to live and die without third party interference, to make my own mistakes and learn from them, which is about as clear as I can get on my motives right now. I aim to teach what I’m learning, by putting it into effect because I want to play with the Rhomay in this way, with tensegrity. I’m constantly challenged by my limited knowledge and the grandeur of the subject, but also compelled to learn and it keeps me sane.
The alchemy for the end-times of the Kali Yuga is not the same as it would have been at the beginning of the kalpa. These times are defined by escalating war, insanity, loss of humanity, mindless destruction and extinction. This is Ceridwen’s cauldren and A11 is a brewin’. Even as you weep for the suffering you see everywhere, don’t despair; humanity as a species wins this final battle of the Kali Yuga. For each of us as individuals, well, much depends on how you live and what you do. Kali protects Her warriors, so long as they hold to the kalika code and protect humanity. She destroys the archontic illusion and all who uphold it and She regenerates the faculties of the Rhomay, with absolute simultaneity, so that you can interact with the Supernatural as easily as making a phone call, right now! You don’t have to wait until the battle is won. The art of Gaian Alchemy is to track and participate in that regeneration/transmutation process, using your senses and imagination as they were designed to be used. And as this knowledge is developed and fed into the morphogenetic field of the Anthropos, it exponentially enhances the extraordinary abilities of all the warriors of the Rhomay. The battle lines are both deeply personal and transpersonal at the same time, so that when you fight for Freedom, Truth and Beauty in your own life, you add those qualities to the brew. There is a selection process underway.
In bringing Gaian Alchemy to life today, I am spiralling back, sniffing out the trail and picking over the clues were left by the chroniclers of the ancient alchemists – panning for gold, and also making gold. And what is the real gold? I can’t define it as one single thing right now. That might sound like a cop-out, but that has to be discovered by each alchemist on his/her own terms. For example: a few days ago, it came up in conversation how our PAM gives us two hues, the blue skin tone in the presence of the Organic Light and the amber-gold when She shows Her pleasure. These hues are visible in exactly the same way to everyone who has these experiences. Doesn’t that make you wonder about the nature of alchemical gold? Do you see that it is alive, responsive, something that you ache for?
“The Gold you acquire at the end of the work is also called the Philosophic Gold, or the Philosophic Matter. To paraphrase, it is what matters philosophically, in the long run, after all the DROSS is burned away. Remember that philosophy is nothing but the methodical inquiry into the meaning of life, the loving-to-know what life really means. The DROSS is our immersion in the human muddle, our total identification with it and everything it means, but the gold is a gleaming thread that leads elsewhere.
Alchemical Gold cannot be sold and as you may sense from the awkwardness of this passage, it is even extremely difficult to give away.
That anyone who assumes responsibility for the outcome of deeds initiated by the Gods will eventually be delivered from the human muddle – this is the subtle idea held by the alchemists to be the supreme idea. Nowhere do they attempt to explain how the assumption of this responsibility for the Divine Dilemma is not a super-burdening but an unburdening, yet everywhere they allude to it as the only thing worth thinking about, the one true Philosophic Matter. What comes of it is noted by Rilke in a letter where he writes to Rodin: “He was a worker, who desired nothing but to enter, completely and with all his powers into the humble and austere reality of his art. In this there was a certain renunciation of life. But precisely by such patience did he win life: for the world offered itself to his art.”
THROUGH THEIR INCURSIONS INTO THE HUMAN REALM, MYTHICAL BEINGS BECOME ENTANGLED IN HUMAN KARMA SO THAT THEIR OWN EVOLUTION COMES TO BE DEPENDENT UPON HUMAN ACTION – SUCH IS THE DIVINE DILEMMA.”
The Course in Gaian Alchemy, John Lash
In a nutshell, you engage in Gaian Alchemy by taking responsibility for your own life, in such as way as to pull yourself out of the murky muck of mundane affairs, so that you can (if you so desire) take responsibility for solving the problems created by the gods, our Divine Mother specifically! But you don’t do it alone, of course.
The goal of Gaian Alchemy is the completion of the Great Work. The Great Work is, in one sense, all that is possible to imagine, thus it includes the biosphere and even the Milky Way Galaxy. The gods left our home galaxy incomplete intentionally, so that the subjects of their experiments could (eventually, potentially) enjoy the pleasure of completing their work. This is what you would call a long-term project, but the interaction between what is happening on this planet and in the cosmos is easily verifiable. For those of you who followed the GNE, and other stargazers, have you noticed what is happening with the Milky Way over the past few years? Doesn’t it seem to be falling apart and going in a completely different direction? Could you say that it is mirroring what is happening on this planet, and vice versa? As above, so below. The Anthropine species on this planet is a long way away from co-creating anything with the gods, but the Human Effect extends as far as we could possibly imagine and we can learn how to regenerate as well as we have learned how to destroy. That is a sobering thought, the next time you complain about the lack of opportunity!
The social domain across the whole world is disintegrating into chaos, but at the same time clarity, pristine cognition and solutions are erupting spontaneously amongst those who live outside of the system as much as they can. I don’t think it’s possible to live completely outside the system, not unless you adopt a really primitive lifestyle, but living in the countryside and not being employed in a slave job reduces the impact somewhat. I notice here that as I fret about the weather, “not enough rain, too much rain (really too much rain)”, nature just gets on with it. I’m looking for a break in the action to transplant seedlings, but the birds are nesting, the fruit trees are in blossom and the grass is already knee high. Nature regenerates itself every spring, but the Anthropos has been so systematically disconnected from that process that not only do we no longer remember how to regenerate ourselves, but we go one step further and dismiss it as impossible. How long has this amnesia and disconnection been in effect? Millenia, perhaps. The irony is that the escalating destruction and chaos actually create the conditions that make remembering and regeneration possible, but only for those who have the Sophianic Narrative to keep them sane and sober through the storm.
I have no doubt that we were designed with the innate ability to regenerate any part of the body, including limbs and organs. Adult stem cells are found in many parts of the human body, including the bone marrow, heart, liver, gut and brain and have different functions; some only have the ability to generate one type of cell, while others are multipurpose. Recent research is proving that the central dogma of DNA (that DNA writes to RNA to create all the proteins in the body) does not tell the full story and bioelectricity has much more of a role than previously thought. Studies have shown that electrical signals provide environmental cues for intercellular communication, to orchestrate cellular behaviour during morphogenesis and regeneration. It has been proven that bioelectricity can induce limb regeneration in non-regenerative species. However, all these studies fail to consider the source of these electrical signals!
Gaian Alchemy is now informed by the Sophianic Narrative and Planetary Tantra. Additionally, the Electric Universe proponents provide scientifically verifiable theories that back up what John Lash observed and intuited when he created the course back in 1983. If you look through the lens of Gaian Alchemy, you can clearly see that various outlying scientific communities are picking up on the operational similarities and the interactivity between the cosmos, the earth and the human creature. However, their ingrained myopia does not allow them so see (or remember) the elephant they are actually riding on! And therein lies the role for Gaian Alchemists in the social domain, to guide science which is still operating in the mode of the three blind men describing an elephant. Does that sound outrageously ambitious? Yet, it’s nowhere near as ambitious as playing like the gods!
Coming back down to earth and right up close and personal; your Goddess endowed luminous epinoia, the power of imagination, nous and intelligence are entrained by your perception, but your perceptive abilities have been disabled by generations of archontic interference. You cannot look at the sky or a tree or a rock and see it as a Gnostic seer or shaman would have seen it. Neither can I. But you and I now know that our perceptive abilities were hacked, and who did it. Furthermore, as habitual behavior unravels, deeper memories of what the Anthropos were once capable of spontaneously emerge. I don’t know how you can get traction and harness these emerging abilities unless you live in a supportive and healthy indigenous community, or you recognize yourself as Rhomay within the Sophianic Vision Story. You don’t have to do anything else, unless you want to. Gaian Alchemy is the method for training your senses and imagination to track and participate in regeneration interactively.
I would guess that Gaian Alchemy might appeal to those with an interest in natural healing and want to learn more about the source of our innate healing ability and how far it extends. As the kalpa draws to its bloody end and the need for healing and regeneration becomes increasingly desperate, more possibilities of engagement open up for those who want to participate in Correction in this way. There is no fundamental difference between regenerating a limb or a forest, it’s simply a matter of scale, imagination and cosmic timing.
On a personal note, I’ve been through my own healing process and helped many other people through theirs. There is much more work to do in this area as so much damage has been done, but the focus of Gaian Alchemy is not on teaching people how to heal themselves or anyone else, although that will be a by-product. A certain level of health is assumed, as the physical foundation for regeneration, but human regeneration is only part of the regeneration of life that is happening concurrently with extinction. That said, I don’t think that our Divine Mother intended us to die in decrepitude, begging to be released from suffering, and 80 years or so is nowhere near long enough to learn and do all the things I want in this life. When I had a near death experience in 2005, I got a taste of freedom and an insight into the possibility of a different way of living. Something that the ancient alchemists knew, began to flutter in the margins of my memory. John Lash has combed through all the surviving material and included anything worth keeping in the Course on Gaian Alchemy. There is still some material to be discarded, now that we know that both Jesus Christ and Einstein were xenosh psyops, but the Course material is the cognitive foundation for regeneration. I’m not saying: put this into practice and you’ll live happily and healthily for as long as you want and die a natural death when you’re ready but, with everything I’ve learned and experienced so far, I’m strangely confident that this is an achievable goal, for some. It could take years of dedicated practice and it will also happen instantaneously and having something to aim for, a goal with never-ending dopamine hits – it feeds me through the times when I’m plagued by doubts.
Ko Hung, a 4th century Chinese Alchemist describes this path as the divine process.
“It has been said, “It is not difficult to enjoy Fullness of Life; the difficulty lies in learning the divine process. It is not difficult to learn the divine process; the difficulty lies in carrying it out. It is not difficult to carry it out; the difficulty lies in persisting to the end.” the master carpenter can give a man his compass and square, but he cannot guarantee dexterity. An intelligent teacher can give a man a written prescription, but he cannot warrant that he will compound it. Cultivation of the divine process is like the sowing of grain; success in it may be compared with the harvest. The field may be fertile and the water conditions perfect, yet if the right weather is not at hand or the hoe is not applied, the grain you have sown will merely form little mounds, but you will reap nothing. No matter how large your farm, there will be no crop.
The ordinary man not only does not realize that profit begets profit; he does not even realize that loss begets loss. To be sure, loss is more easily and readily recognized; profit is hard to recognize and reveals itself more slowly. If, however, facility is not realized, how can one recognize difficulties? Losses may be compared with the flame of the lamp melting in the grease; nobody notices what is transpiring until suddenly the light dies. Profit is to be compared with the sowing and cultivating of plants. Before anyone realizes it, the shoots begin to appear. Therefore, when regulating the body and nurturing its life, give care to the little things. Even a slight profit is not to be considered unimportant and left uncultivated, nor is a slight loss to be considered harmless and left unblocked. Greatness is always the accumulation of little things; a million results from an accumulation of units. If you can appreciate it when it is only a promise and perfect it when it becomes evident, you are close to knowing the divine process.”
Alchemy, Medicine and Religion in the China of AD 320: The Nei Pien of Ko Hung
On Death and Immortality
Regeneration does not mean immortality. The completion of the Great Work is not about achieving immortality. The Anthropos is not on an ascension path. That term is not useful, as it is designed to lead you up your own personal back alley to oblivion. It is, in fact, an elimination path – of which there are many.
Humans are mortal animals and the gods are beings of an entirely different nature. There are many mythological accounts of ‘intermingling’ between the gods and humans, including instances in which the gods have bestowed immortality on humans – such is their gift. However, this does not imply that humans can achieve immortality through their own actions, nor that there is any kind of evolutionary path for humans. Would you really want immortality? Certainly not without some very specific conditions attached.
The Great Work is not an instruction manual for immortality; that’s why I’m using the word regeneration instead. The re-discovery, the remembering of the ability to regenerate, the physical body and the planetary environment, perhaps even the cosmos at large is sufficient and complete. Completion is in itself a gift. What if you could regenerate for as long as you had appetency for life? Would you then welcome death as the final act of completion, “the ultimate moment of life”?
The Gaian Alchemy course as John Lash taught it, concluded with reference to an ‘incursion’ and by calling our attention to the Archer-Snaketamer-Scorpion-Scales tableau, for the clues it offers in dealing with this incursion. At that time, John had not yet written Not in His Image, or reconstructed the Sophianic Narrative, so he was working with clues leading to the definition of the problem, rather than clues to the solutions, as we are now.
At that time he wrote:
“In this tableau of the Southern Constellations, the Snaketamer is an image of the human as master of the Luciferic Impulse, and the Archer is an image of the Human as master of the Ahrimanic Impulse. Thus the constellations mirror us, show us ourselves in various evolutionary situations and postures, at the same time as they show how Mythical Beings have effected Incursions into our realm. The scales themselves are the image of Karma. It must be be noted that the Scales, or Balance, is the only one of the thirteen Ecliptic Constellations which is mechanical. As an image of Karma, the scales has two pans, two counterbalancing scales. The one knocked awry by the Scorpion is the Divine Scale; the one displaced though remaining upright, not spilling its contents, is the Human Scale. (So our “planetary physics in the human scale” has a specific mythic image behind it, you see.) The Scorpion itself is the image of Death, of the Ahrimanic-Satanic power that can lay waste to the Human Essense. In fine detail, the Scenario shows how the Ahrimanic Incursion into human affairs produces an upset or potential loss in the realm of the Gods (Divine Scale), which remains to be corrected by action taken in the human realm (Human Scale, which remains level, though displaced).
In it’s totality, the Scenario shows how the outcome of this situation (which we’re calling the Divine Dilemma) hinges on the human mastery of the Luciferic (Snaketamer) to restrain the Satanic (Scorpion) until the Human, evolved to a higher stage of self-empowerment and self-centering (Archer, oriented to the Galactic Center or Divine Source), can finally and ultimately overcome the dangers posed by the Satanic by transforming it through Love.”
The Course in Gaian Alchemy, John Lash
We now know that the ‘Ahrimanic Satanic power’ referenced in this excerpt is the archontic infection, presented in various guises as religion, democracy and communism, that drives the xenosh to kill or enslave humanity. The Luciferic Impulse is, more or less, a reference to narcissism and the false ego, to be overcome as you claim your identity as Rhomay. The transformative power of Love, is the Love that comes from the Aeonic Mother for the Anthropos, that can only be reciprocated when grounded in self love. It most definitely does not mean ‘love your enemy’.
Fast forward to 2008 (thereabouts) and we have some more clues regarding this cosmic tableau:
“The Thirteenth Constellation
Drawing the thirteenth constellation was the crowning moment of my long artistic experiment with the zodiac. This is Ophiuchus, the Charmer of Serpents, or Snaketamer, the figure that had to be excluded in order to introduce the new paradigm of psyche-cosmos mirroring, using the 12-sector format without stars. Its exclusion signals one of the more devastating turns in the history of our species, a very bad turn, indeed. By a striking coincidence, the starless Ptolemaic zodiac was proposed in 150 AD, the same year that Justin Martyr came out openly and attacked the Gnostics of the Mystery Schools. But this is no coincidence, because the suppression of the Mysteries has everything to do with the loss of the Snaketamer and all he represents: namely, the millennial tradition of indigenous shamanism in Europa, the Levant, and Egypt.”
“In Quest for the Zodiac, I suggested that the serpent imagery in the constellations might be connected with ancient knowledge of genetics and the DNA code. This is consistent with Jeremy Narby’s thesis in The Cosmic Serpent: namely, that the ancients, like some indigenous peoples today, had direct experiential access to the molecular structure of matter. I have proposed the term stellar-genetic continuum for the the linking of cosmic and earthbound biophysics that glimmers in ancient traditions, especially Egyptian sacred astronomy. Today interest in this link has given rise to a fledgling science called exobiology, the study of how life on earth is connected with life beyond earth.”
These two images provide graphic evidence of the significance of this connection:
The first image is of DNA magnified in with a scanning electron microscope. Image a is the DNA strand as it appears naturally. Image b is the image straightened out and the very bottom image shows how this is manipulated to be presented by CGI.
This image is of the Birkeland currents from The Electric Universe: Filaments in Space
Ironically, given it’s esoteric pedigree, Gaian Alchemy’s relevance today hangs on what it is able to offer in the way of recognizable solutions to the major problems humanity faces. At this unique time in the history of our species, the Aeon Sophia is creating the ideal conditions in which the fullest expression of the courage, genius, beauty and ruthless compassion of the RHOMAY will emerge, through the actions of each individual and not the herd. Those who choose to interact with Her directly, guide Her actions. The xenosh will be eliminated, there is no doubt about that, but you have to decide where and how you want to play. Some of the practitioners of Gaian Alchemy, will also be warriors, others will be artists, healers, musicians, gardeners, anyone to whom this appeals; the collective function of individual actions in this field is to stabalize the interaction between our Divine Mother and Her Magical Children and to bind it into phylogenetic memory, to make it easier for others to pick up and so that the Mysteries can never be lost again.
The return of the Snaketamer signals one direction for Gaian Alchemy going forward. Electromagnetic pollution and the even more sinister DEWs are one of the biggest challenges facing life on earth today, the earth is clearly going through Her own electromagnetic events and regeneration is electrical in nature. The weakening of the earth’s magenetic field is not a random event. It is calibrated and calculated to bring more energy into the system, that we need to work out how to use. Currently, Jupiter is completing a loop around the top of the Scales, as if to draw our attention to the human involvement in the Divine Dilemma and also because Thelete, via Jupiter is bringing more energy into the system. Jupiter (with the guidance of pleasure and the pleasure of guidance) overseas Gaian Alchemy. The completion of the Great Work, requires magnification or amplification. The weakening magnetic field exposes the earth to more cosmic rays, which generates more thunderstorms and more energy. Catastrophic weather events are a consequence and we have to learn how to deal with them.
Obviously, lightning generates photons and is there any significant difference, apart from location and intensity, between atmospheric photons and biophotons? Biophotons are emitted by all living things and are beginning to be investigated as the communication system for all cells across the organism. All molecules of a particular type dance to a particular rhythm, generated by photons in the DNA. Fritz-Albert Popp asked where these biophotons came from, but did not consider them as as a medium of communication with the planetary mind. Photons are the music of the stars and our Earth Mother is also a Star Goddess.
What if the instrument of communication is the pineal gland? The calcite crystals in the pineal gland have been discovered to have piezoelectric properties and I think they are being activated by atmospheric pressure. This could explain the particular kind of tinnitus people are experiencing? Actually, tinnitus is probably a misleading term, as it’s not at all like the kind of tinnitus that people describe as problematic ringing in the ears, I wouldn’t even recognize this effect as tinnitus. It’s more like a ‘stoppering’ in one ear only, for me it’s usually the left, in which external sounds get blocked out accompanied by a constant tone, not too high pitched, more like an old-fashioned fax machine. It only lasts 30-60 seconds. The big question is: how do we use this channel?
It brings to mind the image of this psychoacoustic pipe from somewhere in South or Central America: is this pipe simulating a natural effect that we are just beginning to remember?
The other big issue is the human interaction with time. I found the section on Time the most difficult in the Course, but I can also see how pertinent it is to this particular moment in time! It’s not time itself that will be destroyed at the end of this aeonic day, but the specific illusion of time shaped by Christianity and the over-arching control of clock-time – they have to go. But what will replace it? And how can humans co-create with Gaia, without the ability to manipulate time? More big questions for Gaian Alchemists. Time does not create gold.
The master principle for the Great Work, stated in the Theatrum Rosarium, a compilation of alchemical lore from the 17th century:
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.
“You are mistaken, blind one — false deity who cannot see. There is an immortal luminous child, the Anthropos, who came into existence before you and who will appear among your spectral forms (plasmata). This luminous child will trample you in scorn just as a potter’s clay is pounded (into a lump). And you will sink away to your proper zone, along with those who belong to your legion.
For at the consummation of your work, the entire defect [of Archontic illusion] exposed in the light of truth will be abolished, and [that illusion] will be as if it never had been.”
The first year here, our neighbour farmer dumped a trailer load of cow manure on the garden, when I wasn’t around, and told my husband that I asked for it! Well, that was an error of communication, but it really brought it home to me in the most graphic way: I had to be really clear that I wasn’t going to take anyone else’s shit anymore. I have plenty enough of my own. The technical term is ‘humanure.’
SIGNS OF CORRECTION
Within four hours of my having written, “I wasn’t going to take anyone else’s shit anymore” a dear friend posted this on Facebook.
Now, I haven’t spoken with this friend in a few months and I hadn’t planned on writing about the farmer dumping the cow manure. This friend does not follow the Sophianic Narrative either, although he is a sovereign individual and lives a natural lifestyle. So what did this little ‘coincidence’ signify to me? It’s PAM banging on the drum of the endopsyche – don’t you feel it too? Haven’t you had enough of this shit?
Sophia has agency. She’s had it since the summer of 2016. This means She is using all means available to get your attention – it doesn’t matter to Her whether you know She exists or not; you are still one of Her children. For those of us in PT, She’s having a bit of fun, showing that She can play with the search engines. She can eliminate the xenosh and their collaborators at any time, of course, but our wise and generous mother is giving us the opportunity to participate in that pleasure with Her and that necessitates refusing to take on other people’s shit and dealing with your own.
The first principle of Gaian Permaculture, as I defined it is: feed the soil. But what do you feed a goddess? Obviously, She eats anything, the earth is a closed system and everything is ultimately recycled, but some things are clearly more beneficial to the garden than others.
So, that leads right back to dealing with your own shit. We do that quite literally here. All our ‘humanure’ goes on the garden, along with waste from the chicken coop and all our vegetable peelings etc. (after they’ve been composted for a year or so). Some one told us that the best way to make a bed was to dig the top layer of topsoil away and put in a layer of straw and a layer of compost, then put the topsoil back. We’ve done that on a couple of beds this winter and have just planted potatoes and brassicas.
I’m not saying compost toilets and ‘humanure’ for everyone, but it is what we need to do to live here and it’s really not so bad. Flushing toilets seem quite strange to me now. We have compost toilets and a tree-bog (the loo with a view), no flushing toilets, no municipal sewage. (We have a reed bed for grey water.) And it’s quite obvious how dealing with your own shit has benefits. I just noticed that the asparagus is coming up already!
The soil looks good this year, finally. It’s taken four years, to get to the point where we are growing around half of all our vegetables and that will increase now we know more about what works and what doesn’t. I feel that it’s paid off taking it slowly and not giving the soil ‘indigestion’ by making improvements too rapidly. A friend nearby got his soil to what seemed like a perfect state within two years, but then the mice moved in to that lovely soft, rich warm soil and ate everything. He still hasn’t got rid of them. In using our own waste to feed the earth, we have moved at the right pace for the biochemical relationship between us and the soil to develop; we are giving the soil all the information and nutrients it needs, to give us exactly what we need in terms of medicine and nourishment.
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Hippocrates
We tried mulching with wood chips on several of the beds two years ago. They are good for weed suppression, but there’s no tree cutting company around here, so we had to go and get them from the wood yard. This was a lot of work and we ended up with lots of hard wood and it takes too long to break down. We will eventually use wood chips for the paths – after we’ve dug up all the brambles – but they didn’t really work on the beds.
Our main source of mulch is leaf mulch from the oak woods close by and grass cuttings in the spring and summer.
We started the garden in the winter of 2014, by clearing some straggly pines over about an acre, laying out beds and digging in ditches and swales and putting in a series of drainage pipes. This is after we cleared the trees and as we started laying out the beds with beams from the old house. We did a lot of digging.
I used to call the garden the ‘food forest’, rather optimistically. Four years later, it’s clear that what we are doing here is technically more organic polyculture than permaculture, but let’s not quibble over terms. Now, we just call it the garden – ‘la huerta’ as they say here. We haven’t been able to work on the garden as much as we would have liked, we also had a house to build and retreats to run and it was a big help to have some volunteers last summer, but we are making steady progress.
water management: Swales, ditches and drainage
The year we moved here, in 2013, was said to be the wettest in 70 years. It rained torrentially, more or less continuously, from January to May. The track to our house was an ‘over-the-top-of-your-wellies’ river and the mud was relentless. As the soil here is clay, we put in a lot of effort over the following year, digging ditches and swales and putting in drainage, to prevent water-logging. Then we had very little rain, with drought conditions in much of Galicia for the next three years.
Last year was very hard on the garden, with a highly unusual late frost at the end of April, that wiped out the grapes, all our fruit and potatoes, followed by more drought. We lost quite a few trees too. We put in extruding hose, which worked quite well, but will need to be supplemented with water storage tanks, as we can’t run the water for the garden and water in the house at the same time (we are now off-grid). We were almost to the point of filling in the swales, as they were just filling up with weeds, when this year the rain returned. Two weeks ago the reservoirs were all 90% full, and it’s still raining. We have more than enough rain to get us through the summer now, but we really need the rain to stop so we can get out and do some planting. This summer we will need to do some swale maintenance.
Still, what a joy it is to see our swales and drainage working properly. All that work finally paid off!
We put a drain across the track and this takes the run-off in a buried pipe 80M or so down to the pool. The rain from the green roof of the house joins this pipe and also goes to the pool, you can just see it to the left of the deck. The pool dried up completely last summer, although the summer before people were able to swim in it. If it dries up, that’s it, as we’re not going to pump water from the well into the pool.
The swales are filled from a ditch across the brow of the hill and they are linked by drainage pipes that also go down to the other end of the pool.
The overflow from the pool goes to the little creek at the bottom of our property. One day, we’d like to clear the creek, to help it flow better, it’s really overgrown at the moment.
This is an update on Dean’s success regarding the elimination of a persistent fungal sore, of the type that has been named basal cell carcinoma, as in skin cancer, by medical experts, but is really just a fungus.
Much disease is seeded in the mind of the ‘patient’ through the process of giving a name to a collection of symptoms. Through the act of recognition, the ‘patient’ maps the named condition (whatever it is, it could be cancer, arthritis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, it doesn’t matter, the process is the same) to the description of the condition he/she already holds in his memory, along with the emotional weight he/she associates with it. Fear of death, pain, disfigurement and incapacitation is associated with disease and sickness, because of childhood experiences that have been covertly shaped by the architects behind the medical mafia. Every one of you has known a relative who has gone into hospital never to return and most of you were taken to the doctor at the first sign of sickness, or even worse without being sick at all, for so-called preventative medicine. No matter how stoic you might be, no matter how self-actualised, intelligent or even ‘spiritual’ you might consider yourself to be, if you get sick, you notice the symptoms and map them to the memories and programmes that were inserted into your mind before you had the necessary neurophysiology to exercise any discernment. The natural process of recognition was and still is, manipulated to work against you. However, the enemies of humanity lose their advantage once you recognize what YOU are doing.
When a doctor says: I have some bad news, you have cancer, it sounds like an incantation (ie enchantment) and feels like a curse. That’s because it is a curse. The fact that, for the most part, both doctor and patient are ignorant of the ‘cancer curse’ does not render it any less effective. The structure of the human brain allows for external programming and self-programming, so that the human animal can discover its incompleteness and begin the work of regeneration, completion and co-creation with the gods, within a Universe that is also rendered incomplete for that very purpose. Sophia’s plunge and the resulting spontaneous generation of the archons was an unforeseen anomaly that has led to the cascading exploitation of that design feature by the xenosh and their collaborators. Cancer is one sadistic story of exploitation, voodoo and a shapeshifting fungus.
The word ‘patient’ from Old French pacient and Latin patientem means: enduring without complaint and bearing, supporting, suffering, enduring, permitting.
Candida and the cancer lie
Candida is a polymorphic yeast-like fungus, said to be normally present in small concentrations within the microbial colonies of humans and other animals. There are several strains of candida, of which Candida Albicans is considered to be the most pathogenic, but the differences are mostly related to geographical location and inconsequential when considered in relation to disease. Polymorphic means that it is able to take more than one form: it can be a spore, a unicellular yeast, a linked chain of round and elongated cells called pseudo-hyphae and hyphae, which are the strands that clump together to form mycelium. It is asexual and reproduces through budding. In a healthy and balanced host it feeds mostly on sugars and its biological function is to decompose dead tissue. The shape of the fungus is imposed by the environment in which it develops.
When the gut flora colony becomes unbalanced, such as through poor diet, pharmaceuticals (especially antibiotics and oral contraceptives), environmental toxins, stress and impaired immune function, candida goes into overdrive and a chain of health problems follow. Many of the problems are caused by the 80-180 different toxins candida releases during its life cycle. As competition for food intensifies, candida spores travel around the body in search of suitable conditions for proliferation, where it attaches to the tissues of the host and the hyphae start to burrow in. In this stage, candida is often referred to as parasitic, as it feeds directly on the host, although a fungus is not a true parasite as it always make a contribution to the greater eco-system. A parasite only ever serves itself, while it develops tactics to make the host think it is useful – sound familiar?
The presence of candida in many conditions such as arthritis, autism, diabetes, heart disease, MS and cancer has been known for a long time, but it was generally considered to be an after-effect rather than a cause. It was Dr Simoncini, an Italian oncologist, who discovered that candida is actually the root cause of most, if not all, so-called cancer. He found candida in all the cancers he examined and came to the conclusion that the variations found in different types of cancer, e.g. lung cancer, or breast cancer or skin cancer, is not indicative of any morphology of healthy cells to cancer cells. Rather, it is the result of the combinations caused by candida being shaped by the organ or tissue within which it is located and that tissue’s specific response to the invasion. So, the liver responds differently to the pancreas, or the blood, or the skin. Furthermore, Dr Simoncini discovered that sodium bicarbonate kills the candida in most situations, leading to the disappearance of the ‘cancer’. Due to the unique properties of skin, candida takes a particular form that responds better to iodine than sodium bicarbonate.
Dr Simoncini took his findings to the Italian Medical Board, soliciting their involvement in further research. The Italian Medical Board responded by initiating proceedings to strike him off, resulting in years of court battles and demonization; the standard response of the medical mafia to anyone who challenges their monopoly. Details of Dr Simoncini’s research and protocols are in his book, Cancer is a Fungus and on his website.
The notion that the cells of your body turn mutant, that they spontaneously develop self-destructive genetic mutations, is the most cruelly deceitful lie ever to be perpetuated by the medical mafia. This insidious lie has been carefully installed, over many generations, into the fabric of the medical and scientific communities so that even true doctors and scientists (there are some) have been duped into looking for non-existent genetic problems. The list of pioneering doctors who have been persecuted, vilified or even murdered in order to keep the cures for cancer and other diseases they discovered suppressed is still growing. At the same time, information on natural therapies has been consistently been represented in an incomplete or misleading manner and anyone without a medical qualification is prohibited from publishing, and in many countries subject to prosecution, information that COULD BE FOUND to be offering advice on how to cure cancer or any other proscribed diseases – for your protection, of course. This has been well-covered elsewhere, so I won’t go into it here.
The critical question is: what do you do if you have a health problem? Every one of us has been programmed from childhood to seek help from the medical profession when sick or injured, but the terrible truth is that, no matter how genuine a conventional doctor or nurse might be, they have been entrained into a system that is purposefully structured to make you progressively weaker and sicker, rather than fit and healthy. Unless it’s a mechanical injury, like a broken bone, or something that needs stitching up, they simply CANNOT help you – all the hospitals and doctors offices, with their machines and fancy outfits, it’s all just make-pretend, to make you (and themselves) believe they are doing something useful. When you do get better, it is usually simply because that is what your body was designed to do and when you THINK you will get better, given time and no further harm, that is what happens. This is an individual front line for each of us, what works for one may, or may not work for another, as there are too many variables at play. However, there are two certainties you can count on:
the medical SYSTEM is not designed to help you;
the Anthropos was designed in the pleroma by our aeonic parents, Sophia and Telete, to be self-healing and as Superlearning proceeds many more of us will discover how to activate these faculties for ourselves.
I’m highlighting Dr Simoncini’s protocol for skin cancer, because his well-documented observations regarding the candida fungus ring true to me. More pertinently, he has proven the effectiveness of simple and cheap solutions, that do not require specialist equipment and that many people have used for themselves with good results. There might well be other options, but after having tried several other approaches, with varying success rates, Dean found Dr Simoncini’s iodine protocol to be the quickest and most effective in eliminating his fungal sore.
The Simoncini Iodine Protocol for Skin Cancer
“All skin cancers are always caused by the candida fungus which has adapted itself to metabolizing the most proteinaceous constituents of the epidermis and that can, therefore, only rarely be treated with sodium bicarbonate solutions.
The treatment to choose for epithileomas, basaliomas, and melanomas is iodine solution at seven percent, as it is capable of precipitating the proteins of the body of the fungus and destroying them completely in a short time.
If the lesions are fairly small, they must be painted with the solution 10-20-30 times, twice a day for five days and then once for another ten days so that they become very dark. When the eschar is formed and it is higher than the epidermic plane, it is necessary to continue to paint under and above it, even if at first this causes a sharp pain.
This very same operation must be repeated for the second eschar that is formed. At this point the lesion may be considered destroyed, because after the third cycle it is possible to reach the center of the neoplasia, where the colonies try to resist to the last.”
Dr T. Simoncini, Cancer is a Fungus
Dean used J.Crow’s 5% Lugol’s solution, as we couldn’t find 7%. This is a non-alcohol based tincture, which is not as painful on the sore as the alcohol based tinctures.
He applied it to the sore, around 21 ‘drops’ from the pipette, waiting for each one to dry before applying the next, twice a day for the first five days and then once a day thereafter for 17 days. The sore got huge, as you can see, and then it’s just a matter of ‘holding your nerve’ as you continue the process until after two-three weeks, it begins to improve. The whole process took about six weeks, but this is an individual thing. It might take longer or less time, if you use the protocol you have to observe the sore closely and make your own decision as to when to stop the treatment.
He takes 2 drops of the Lugol’s iodine in a glass of water every day, but he didn’t go on a candida elimination diet or do a candida cleanse. (We don’t eat processed food, sweets, sugary drinks, wheat or lots of starch – and we do drink good Spanish wine.)
He also lives the Sophianic Narrative and ‘self-authorised’ following the procedure I describe in this talk: Spelling Out Disease
NB: the skin has continued to heal and I’ll post a final follow-up picture in due course.
Fungus: guides to extinction and/or enlightenment?
By conservative estimates, there are over 1.5 million different species of fungus, with only 75,000 identified so far. They can kill you or enlighten you, perhaps even both at the same time, and offer a full spectrum of benefits/hazards in between. Most mycologists focus on the species that colonize the external environment, fields and forests etc. and those that colonize the human body. This is not because there are significant differences in the biology of the fungi, but because medical sciences have a monopoly on human disease and pathogens. A medical doctor is considered more qualified to advise on a fungal infection than a mycologist, therefore fungal infections are persistent and ‘difficult to cure.’
Fungi specialize in breaking dead things down to their elemental components, to be re-used by the living. From Death Cap to psilocybe, they are all doing the same thing in different ways – enlightenment is just a fully-conscious form of break-down in which the physical body survives. Everything on this planet is recycled and fungi are ‘mama’s little helpers’ in that task. As the sixth extinction gathers pace, doesn’t it seem obvious that there will be more ‘fungus among us’ to break down all that dead meat walking around?
According to mycologist Paul Stamets, “All fungi have learning strategies to survive, mothering members through the mycelium matrix who’s interest is in the long-term survival of the eco-system.”
From the planetary perspective candida is not a problem; it is just a consequence for some members of the anthropine species, those who live in such a way as to disregard both themselves as individuals and the eco-system in which they are enmeshed, that is their mutually beneficial symbiotic role in the eco-system as a whole. To put it bluntly, you can’t love life without loving yourself and vice versa and without this self-love, expressed through how you live your life, you are inevitably fungus fodder.
I think this video illustrates the point. It shows the effectiveness of expressed intention, but watch what happens to the jar of rice that was ignored. Doesn’t that look like candida, or maybe even cancer to you?
We are not on municipal water here and we don’t have a septic tank. All our grey water goes into a reed bed, so we are careful to minimise our use of chemicals so that we don’t kill the reeds and create a stink! In most cases the natural option is cheaper, healthier and more effective – although you might have to experiment a bit to find out what suits you.
Shampoo is an issue if you’ve been used to the sleek, glossy, full-volume, untangled hype of the chemical stuff, especially if you have long hair. But it’s not worth dying for! Most commercial, non-organic shampoos contain SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE (SLS) & SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE (SLES) and they are probably the most dangerous of all personal care products. Just because there is no immediate noticeable effect doesn’t mean that it isn’t harmful in the long-term. Why take the risk? In animal tests ( and why have that on your conscience for a shampoo?) they have been found to cause eye damage, depression, breathing difficulties, diarrhoea, severe skin irritation, immune system damage, corrosion and death. According to the American College of Toxicology states both SLS and SLES can cause malformation in children’s eyes.
DEA (diethanolamine) MEA (momoethanolamine) TEA (triethanolamine) are also in most main brand shampoos, often appearing as Cocamide DEA or MEA, Lauramide DEA, etc. These are hormone disrupting chemicals and research has shown that they are implicated in the increase in liver and kidney cancers.
I want to make life easy for my immune system, not more challenging!
I’ve been mostly underwhelmed with the organic shampoo options. They are expensive, hard to find here and tend to leave my hair feeling life-less and just not that clean. I prefer my home-made option, which we also use as a body wash and hand wash.
I have long hair and I don’t take care of it – it gets sun-damage over the summer and windblown in the winter. I don’t condition or colour it and can barely be bothered to get it cut once a year. But it’s healthy and shiny and virtually without grey.
coconut milk shampoo recipe
Here’s the recipe:
one can of organic coconut milk (400ml)
400ml liquid castille soap
200ml vegetable glycerin
a few drops of essential oils of your choice ( I use rosemary mostly)
Mix the ingredients and pour into a used shampoo bottle. This makes quite a bit, so I put the rest in the freezer and defrost when I need a refill. You only need to use a small amount and don’t be put off by the fact that it’s quite runny. It lathers really well and smells gorgeous. Initially I used aloe vera to improve the texture of the shampoo and neutralise the pH, but the end result was still a bit ‘claggy’ which built up over a few weeks. The vegetable glycerin gives a squeaky clean feel and adds to the shine, with no build up. I wouldn’t go back to store bought stuff even if it was available and I had cash to throw at it.
Castille soap is made from olive oil and caustic soda. Dr Bronner’s is the most well-known brand, but there are others – I usually use the hemp and almond version. You can make your own, and I’ve tried this, but it makes it a lot more work and the result tends to be inconsistent as it’s temperature and humidity dependent – sometimes it’s too thick and other times too runny.
