Around the first quarter moon, seven or eight nights into this Bhairavi/Shodashi double shift, I dreamt about the sword in the stone. It was more an observation than a dream, the sword in the stone with an image of the brain superimposed on it.
A few days after my dream, John presented the Jupiter timeline, shown here.
But what is the meaning of the sword in the stone/brain motif?
Cueing is a subtle function of the mirroring attention. As it dances and shimmers, it fires neurons and dendrites in your brain into sparking up new synapses and guides your perception so that you notice some things rather than others. When such a powerful image as the sword in the stone, embedded as it is in the human imagination, shows up in a dream and in the sky and literally on earth within the same timeframe, it is an irresistible call to investigate further. Especially as I’d also been given a tarot card, the Queen of Swords, in a dream six months previously. The second image, of the sword in the brain, was my starting point – what connects the two images?
I like to play with the three attentions to get my dopamine fix, so I looked up some images of the brain.
The first thing that caught my attention was a structure called the fornix. I’d never heard of it before.
“The term fornix comes from Latin and means “arch.” It is used to refer to various arch-like structures in the body, but when used in reference to the brain it indicates a bundle of white matter fibers that arches around the thalamus…..
……The diverse group of structures known as the limbic system is now thought to be involved in much more than emotion, and the fornix is still considered an important part of the limbic system. The fornix acts as the primary outgoing pathway from the hippocampus, and thus its most recognized function is its involvement in memory. The hippocampal projections that travel in the fornix are thought to be important for memory consolidation, and damage to the fornix has been associated with anterograde amnesia, which involves the inability to create new memories. Fornix damage is primarily linked to deficits in declarative memories, or memories for factual information—and especially episodic memories, which are a type of declarative memory that deals with autobiographical information.”
The fornix is also known as the dream box, as it is said to be where your dreams come from. So this arched, vault-like structure, that brought to mind the outline of an anvil, links your experiences to your sense of self, through the faculties of memory and dreaming. Wow – what a hit!
(BTW: if that wasn’t enough, women also have a fornix near the cervix that is involved in orgasms.
According to the Constellations of Words, the word fornix is linked to fornax:
“The word broth (from *bhreue-) resembles the word brothel. Brothels were called fornices (hence fornication), i.e. ‘arches’, because prostitutes used to gather ‘under the arches’ of certain buildings of ancient Rome . The word brothel comes from another *bhreu– root: *bhreu– Also bhreue-. ‘To cut, break up’. Derivatives: brittle, brothel (from Old English breothan, to deteriorate, from Germanic *breuthan, to be broken up), bruise, frustule (the hard, siliceous bivalve shell of a diatom), frustum (the portion of a solid – normally a cone or pyramid – which lies between two parallel planes cutting the solid). [Pokorny 1. bhreu– 169, 2. bhreu–s– 171. Watkins]
The word brand from Old French brand, and Old Norse brandr, also meant a ‘sword, or sword-blade.’
“In alchemical terms, ‘the Philosopher’s Sword’ is the fire in the furnace” [Penguin Symbols].
An athanor, or alchemists’ furnace, is an Arabic word ‘al-tannur‘, Hebrew tannur, related to Akkadian tinnuru, meaning a furnace or oven, usually shaped like an egg . Built of brick or clay, it was designed to keep an even heat over long periods of time. The alchemists considered it an incubator and sometimes referred to it as the ‘House of the Chick.’  The making of the Philosopher’s Stone (also referred to as the Philosopher’s Egg) requires the combination of the purest possible sulfur and the purest possible mercury, to be combined in the athanor .
Alchemists regarded the athanor, in which the process of transmutation took place, [as] an egg-shaped matrix, like the world itself, which is a gigantic egg, the Orphic egg which may be found at the base of all initiatory rites both in Egypt and in Greece. And just as Ruah Elohim, the Spirit of the Lord, floats upon the waters, so ought the spirit of the world, the spirit of life, to float above the waters of the athanor. The alchemist needed the skill to make this spirit his own.(GRIM p. 392) [Penguin Symbols]”
And there is the link between the sword in the stone and the sword in the brain: in alchemical terms, ‘the Philosopher’s Sword’ is the fire in the fornix. The fornix is the biological structure that enables you to self-identify within the dreaming of the Wisdom Goddess, so that Her dream can come through you and the sky writing shows what is currently being fired up. So far so good.
Thalamus, bridal chamber and cosmic egg
You will also notice that the structure below the fornix, the thalamus, is egg shaped. The walnut-sized thalamus is located right in the centre of the brain and is variously referred to as the cosmic egg, the bridal chamber and the gateway to consciousness. Its main function is to distribute incoming sensory information to appropriate regions of the cortex so that it can be actioned or stored. However, it also functions as a gatekeeper, only delivering information in accordance with your state of consciousness. In non-ordinary consciousness, such as in a telestic or shamanic trance or a full-body kundalini experience the thalamus is the dipole centre-point of the feminine/negatively charged pituitary gland via the ida channel and the masculine/positively charged pineal gland via the pingala channel. In these peak experiences the cortex is so flooded with information that it is often impossible to act on it, or even recognize it at the time. The fornix holds this content in memory, as part of your life experience and helps you process it in dreams so that you can express it later.
The thalamus doesn’t get much attention, as compared to the more popular pineal gland, but turns out to be quite mysterious. It was named by a Greek physician, Claudius Galen who lived from around 129AD to 210AD and went to Rome to revive the ideas of Hippocrates. He described and named the thalamus, meaning ‘bridal chamber’ from ‘thalamos’ meaning inner room. He considered that the thalamus supplied the ‘animal spirit’ to the optic nerves. The part that looks like the egg yolk is called the Massa Intermedia, but only 70-80% of the population have one and it is often smaller in men. It is a bundle of tissue that connects the two halves of the ‘thalamus walnut’ and is said to be functionless by medical science! Intermedia means connection across multiple channels and the thalamus is also a part of a flower.
Can you hear the bells?
Note also, the similarity between the Eye of Horus and the thalamus, with its yolk like Massa Intermedia.
At this point in my research, my mind leapt to the second attention, the realm of imagination, so I decided to sleep on it. The next day was the 7th September, when Jupiter completed its seven month cycle and returned to the womb of the Virgin and Arcturus was high and bright in the sky. Perfect conditions for a shamanic realignment session to explore this topic in non-ordinary consciousness.
Shamanic Realignment of the Imagination
In the most general sense, a shamanic realignment session realigns your imagination with the imagination of the earth. You need an intention or topic to make the connections and in this instance I aimed to witness what was happening with the sword in the stone/brain motif. A shamanic realignment session differs from a telestic session in that you invite the Wisdom Goddess into your body, as opposed to going out to meet Her. The subject is more personal than for a telestic session and can focus on a healing issue or what might be termed, self-actualization or transmutation.
Before the session I made sure to get express permission from my two male companions, to guide the process – a crucial prerequisite. This time I was able to describe the activation of the ida and pingala as they snaked up my spine, crossing at the chakras, as it was happening. As soon as they passed they passed the throat chakra, the temperature dropped, the honeycomb lattice became visible and there was a low, subauditory hum around the tipi. Then all the dogs in the neighbourhood started barking and our dogs ploughed into the tipi, like hyper-excited children at a birthday party. It was immediately clear to me that this session was going to be hands-on learning.
The lesson was in concentration and how to speak so that the power of the Aeonic Mother is in the words. I told my companions that rather than being disturbed by the dogs, we were going to use our focus and concentration to silence the area and stop our dogs from entering the tipi. I guided them in holding focus and concentration and that’s what we did. We were able to repeat the process three times, so that we were all satisfied that the silence and non-disturbance was the result of our focus and concentration. The simply beautiful take-away from that lesson was that it really doesn’t take much effort to enforce your boundary and bring calm to your immediate vicinity. Don’t invite in what you don’t want. Boundaries are sacred to the Aeons.
But what does this have to do with the sword in the stone? There is always a flood of information that comes with these sessions, as new synaptic connections are made in the brain. The power of the word is given to all sovereign human animals but, in order to use it, you must recognize your own sovereignty. You can only recognize your sovereignty through your actions, when you rise to the challenge and grasp the sword with both hands – that is to speak the truth, intentionally and clearly, at the time that it matters.
I add the qualifier, ‘intentionally and clearly’ because mindless chatter and emotional outbursts, no matter how personally intense, do not wield Her power. Neither does logic without personal involvement, no matter how well expressed. It is only when you care deeply enough about something AND are able to maintain the presence of mind to be able to speak clearly in the moment, that the ida and pingala bring sufficient charge to the thalamus, and the ‘bridal chamber’ regenerates. Then you know you share the power of the Wisdom Goddess.
As Arcturus pointed to Jupiter in the womb of the Virgin, the legend of King Arthur was cued and called your attention to the question of sovereignty; were you born to be sovereign, to wield the supreme power of the Aeon Sophia, to co-create your experience with your words? Spelling only works when you hold the s-word.
“The highest desire of the gaian dakinis is that you command them with pleasure.”

In the previous post, Living Water in the New Reel, I described how structured water, or living water as I prefer to call it, helps provide the electrical charge needed to stabilize your character in the new reel. As I explained in that post, we have good quality water here, pure and unfiltered from a deep well, but we have noticed significant improvements since we started using the water structuring discs I’m going to talk about here.
In April this year (2017) Anton from South Africa came to visit, to present his water structuring technology to John Lash and to seek his input on taking it forward. Anton has had a successful business selling water structuring products and consulting in water structuring technology for nearly 20 years in South Africa. The background to his visit is that he listened to John’s interviews on Redice and felt that he was of the few interviewees who recognised white genocide, which is an everyday issue for white South Africans and had something useful to say about it. White genocide and the plight of European settlers who built that country is not the subject of this post, but it is a fine example of the success of judeo-communism and well worth studying. If you know the enemy and their tactics, it is much easier to keep them out of your life.
Anton’s technology now goes under the acronym, ELFET, which stands for Electrical Field Entrainment Techniques, and involves mimicking the rhythms, shapes and movement of Nature using sound. (In South Africa it is known as Trivortex.) He has created software that turns sacred geometry into sound waves. Objects are put into a specially made chamber and the specially created audio frequencies are ‘played’ through each end of the chamber to impregnate the objects. There is still some as yet unexplained mystery about this process, although it most likely involves the creation of a scalar field within the chamber. Anton has focused his efforts on delivering the proof that the technology works, rather than theorizing. And we saw the proof for ourselves.
As soon as Anton began demonstrating the software and how to plot the points to create the shapes and movement, John recognised this:
It’s called Kepler’s Trigon and shows the positions of Saturn and Jupiter in opposition to the sun. Kepler was the first to publish this pattern in 1606, and the diagram shows how Jupiter and Saturn occupy the same positions on three occasions over a timeframe of a couple of months. Then the fourth conjunction returns to within 7-8° of the last conjunction after a lapse of 60 years, which is why the plotted triangle appears to shift around the circle. The next such conjunction will be in December 2020. Anton could have selected other points to plot on his software demonstration, but it just so happened that he picked this pattern, without knowing what it was and that led John to recognize it as Thelete technology. Sophia knows that this happens, of course, but it is the involvement of Thelete that enables the human mind to turn this into exactly the usable technology necessary for these times. Although Anton has been working on this for many years, it is no coincidence that he came to us during the time Jupiter was in the womb of the Virgin.
The Taste Test
We did two taste tests with the water structuring discs. These are small, stainless steel discs (4.5cm) that have been treated in the chambers Anton designed and made. We poured two glasses of water from the tap and placed a disc under one of the glasses for a couple of minutes. Each of us then tasted the untreated water, followed by the treated water. We all noticed exactly the same improvements; the water was somehow silkier and better tasting.
We then did the same test with red wine. We poured two glasses of wine from a newly opened bottle and put the disc under one for a couple of minutes. In just two minutes and average glass of wine matured into a delicious glass of wine.
I have also tested water with my dogs and cats and they all choose the treated water. We use the water structuring discs at home for our drinking water all the time.
Other Test Results
Anton showed us the results of many independent lab tests that have shown the improvements in plant germination, plant growth, nutritional value of plants, elimination of blood toxins and the human energy field. Here are a few images here.
We use the water structuring discs to structure our drinking water, simply by placing the jug of water from the tap on the disc for a few minutes and to water our plants and feel healthy, strong and with constant high level functioning in the new reel. The improvement is noticeable. I’ve also sent discs to friends to use for pain relief following accidents and injuries, used by taping the disc over the painful area, and they also report that it worked when everything else has failed.
How to Buy the Water Structuring Discs
We are allying with Anton to bring the water structuring discs to Nemeta members and supporters. The price is €50 per disc plus p&p, of which €20 goes directly to funding Nemeta – so there is a three-fold benefit here; when you buy one of these discs you are supporting yourself, John’s work going forward and a white South African warrior.
The Nemeta site is currently being set-up which will include a shop where you can buy the discs directly, but we are taking advance orders on the discs now. If you want one, please contact me using the form below.
Do you ever get the feeling that you are living in two oddly disparate worlds? I’ve been noticing this with increasing regularity in this double Idris shift. In his masterful essay, The Director’s Cut, John Lash offers a compelling description of how the Aeonic Mother is editing and splicing the world movie, so that the new reel that plays into the next kalpa overlays the fifth and final reel of the current kalpa. Schizophrenia is unavoidable, as your life flickers between the two simultaneously running reels. The ego construct of the false self we were all forced into is fragmenting, putting yet more pressure on anyone seeking refuge in the fantastic imagination. The A10s are doomed to play out the rest of their lives in the old reel, as it runs to its inevitable conclusion of total destruction and insanity. There’s nothing you can do about that. However, the chances are that, as you are reading this post, you have been dealt a different hand and your fate depends upon how you handle it.
During the period in which the two reels overlay each other the characters in each, the A10s of the fifth reel and the A11s of the new reel, still interact but the interactions become more superficial, ghostlike even, and increasingly influenced by the behaviour of the A11s. The A10s have no choice, they cannot participate in Correction because they were conceived in error, but there are many A11s who are still stumbling around in the Sophianic blindspot – they do not know the story of the planet or the Anthropos or that there are two reels running. The best way to reach other A11s, is through the example you are able to offer by living as A11 in the new reel:
“the Director’s Cut, the version she originally dreamed of howit could play out, given that the Anthropos was left free to own and express its genius-level endowment, unhampered by extraneous deceit.” John Lash, The Directors Cut.
The frontline A11s, the first to breakthrough, need to be warriors and the key challenge for a warrior in these end-times, is how to ground yourself in the ‘new reel’ in your daily life. Planetary Tantra provides the framework for living, the Kalika War Party provides the template for action, but you also participate in Correction and hone yourself as a warrior through the decisions and behaviour in the granular detail of every moment. My aim, through this site and Nemeta once it is up and running, is to share what I’m learning about life as a Sophianic animist and A11 warrior. And when you get right down to basics, what is more essential to life than water?
The Body Functions as a Solar-Powered Water Battery
In the new real, water is not just for hydration; it is a solar powered battery, that fuels many cellular functions, drives circulation and supports the heart.
Remember the alchemical image of The Green Lion Devouring the Sun, that I was contemplating last December when I wrote A Dose of Vitriol? The image prompted something in addition to photosynthesis in my mind, but I couldn’t quite grasp it at the time. When I looked at it again today, I immediately saw the green of the heart chakra and the folklore correlations between the lion and the heart – this image can also be taken to depict the sun powering the heart. This is not as far-fetched as it might sound.
Stephanie Seneff, a computer research scientist at MIT, uses her computer language skills to synthesize volumes of studies in biology, to get to the bottom of what is really going on in many diseases. She has made the connection between sulphur and glucose metabolism and how sulphur deficiency underlies many diseases, see Sulfur deficiency. In the same article she raises the question: is the skin a solar-powered battery for the heart? Vitamin D (actually a hormone and not a vitamin at all) is synthesized in the kidneys, signified by the two ‘balls’ on the tail of the green lion.
Seneff summarizes the process like this:
“Why am I spending so much time talking about all of this? Well, if I’m right, then the skin can be viewed as a solar-powered battery for the heart, and that is a remarkable concept. The energy in sunlight is converted into chemical energy in the oxygen-sulfur bonds, and then transported through the blood vessels to the heart and skeletal muscles. The cholesterol sulfate and vitamin D3-sulfate are carriers that deliver the energy (and the oxygen) “door-to-door” to the individual heart and skeletal muscle cells.”
However, this article doesn’t mention the role of water in the process. Seneff gets to that in this presentation: The Mineral Power of Your Body’s Electrical Supply
This is her summary of that presentation. Sulfate (US spelling) or sulphate (English spelling) means related to sulphur, or compounds of sulphuric acid. Gelled water is also referred to as EZ (exclusion zone) water, structured water, crystalline water or living water.
EZ water, is the term coined by Dr Gerald Pollack and described in his excellent book, The Fourth Phase of Water: Beyond Solid, Liquid and Vapor. Pollack calls the familiar H2O, in which the water molecule is made up of two hydrogen atoms to one oxygen atom, bulk water to differentiate it from EZ water which is H3O2. It has a liquid crystalline honeycomb structure, higher viscosity and is more alkaline than ordinary water. It is the phase of water you know as surface tension that supports water boatman or pond skimmers and it is also the kind of water that makes up 99% of the cells in our bodies and the water in all living organisms. He named it exclusion zone water because it holds a negative charge that enables it to exclude impurities, such as toxins. EZ water occurs where water meets a hydrophilic surface, such as the ocean, or a glass where it meets the atmosphere, in cells where it meets membranes, or in the atmosphere itself where it clings to particles and is involved in the formation of clouds. Bulk water carries a positive charge. EZ water absorbs more radiant energy, especially in the infrared wavelengths (which are everywhere) than bulk water. The separation of the positive and negatively charged water provides the battery polarity, which either repels or attracts according to the amount of stored radiant energy in the EZ water and this creates the flow that enables blood to move through your veins, or water up a tree, as well as releasing energy as heat.
“Water, therefore, acts as a transducer, absorbing one kind of energy and converting it into other kinds.”
Dr Pollack describes this process, very simply in his TED talk: Water, Cells and Life
So, drinking living water, as we drunk from mountain springs and crystal lakes when we lived in forests, is clearly healthy. However, is it possible that correctly charged and aimed human creatures provide energy not just for themselves, but also to the planet? I can’t see how this could not be true. We live in the exclusion zone of the planet, connecting with the negatively charged earth (when you walk barefoot on the earth) and moving through the positively charged atmosphere. You feel the atmosphere, the air as hot and heavy pressure on your skin before a thunderstorm, but you are in it all the time and you cannot possibly be anything other than part of it – but are you a weak connection or a strong one?
Consider these two images. The first is a diagrammatic form of the six primary chakras (corresponding to the main organs of the endocrine system) and the positively and negatively charged channels of the human system. The Ida (negative charge) and Pingala (postitive charge) represent the basic duality in the existence, or Shakti and Shiva, feminine and masculine or it can be the intuitive and logical aspect of you. Without these two dualities, or charges, life wouldn’t exist as it does right now.
The second image shows the Birkeland Currents. Birkeland currents connect the ionosphere to the magnetosphere and channel solar wind energy to Earth’s uppermost atmosphere. The earth is not powered by a liquid iron molten core, but by plasma jets from the sun and the pleroma and we are part of that system too.
Now, consider this text from John Lash’s Great Work, A Recreation of the Alchemical Mystery
“For the Human to serve as the prime regenerative agent in atmospheric alchemy, is certainly a tremendous possibility. And it is only natural to ask if this is really possible, when will it come to pass? The answer must be given by way of the esoteric proposition of counterpoise; when the conditions that require regeneration become acute, then this potential will ripen. The again this leads to the obvious question: what evidence is to be found today of atmospheric processes that require regeneration? This is not hard to answer, for evidence is all around. It presents itself in the phenomenon, now unfolding on a worldwide scale, of collapsing ecosystems,”
John Lash wrote this long before he reconstructed the Sophianic Narrative and the Electric Universe Theory had not yet emerged. He also wrote about plasma and “Aquaster” or star-water and their functions within the essence of the body and the atmosphere. The correlations with living water, or crystalline water are quite clear. And here we are, in the final eleven minutes of Correction and the regenerative agent is emerging. Do you remember John saying this in the GNE: correction occurs in the apsides of Jupiter? Well, isn’t it something to ponder on, how at the midpoint of this superlearning event, the NASA probe Juno, is discovering that Jupiter is not solid and has a complex magnetic field, much stronger than that of the earth and quite similar to the sun in many ways. Is Jupiter/Thelete the regenerative agent that Gaia Sophia needs? The answers to that question will become apparent over the coming months, but what does that have to do with water, you might ask.
This is still a work in progress, but I’m currently considering how the Jovian aspect of hate, the element of sulphur and living water are involved in the regeneration of the planet, at all levels – as above, so below. The planetary animal mother needs living water for her electrical functions and so do we. Do we participate electrically and physiologically in Correction by maintaining our own solar powered batteries (our hearts) at optimum levels? The evidence, so far, supports this hypothesis. You are entrained to see an image of a heart and think love, but sometimes you must protect what you love before it is destroyed and hate makes it easier to do that – just as sulphur and water ease the flow of blood through your veins.
Nemeta Structured Water
In conclusion, drinking living water grounds you in the new real and makes it easier for you to participate in Correction. The effect is electrical and the results are tangible – it helps you remain poised, energized and in flow, so that you can recognize the flicker between the two reels and make an informed choice in any situation.
I know that many of you are already using structured water, but that this isn’t easy for everyone to do. We used to laser our water when we lived in London, but the lasers are very expensive. Here, our water is from a very deep well and we put a copper torsion coil around the well-head and with the pipes running from the well to the house laid in spirals – yet we still found noticeable improvement in the taste and texture of the water when we used a particular water structuring technology. This water structuring technology was demonstrated to us by man who came to visit from South Africa, specifically to see John Lash, to share his technology and learn how it could be applied in the new reel. He said he would have John drinking water by the end of four days – and he did. John described his work as “Thelete technology” and we were so impressed by it that we have formed an alliance with him so we can bring it to Nemeta members.
In the next post I’ll provide more information about this water structuring technology, where you can buy it and how to become a Nemeta member.
Hee, in whom Love doth breed, to stirre more hate,
Courting a wanton Nimph for his delight;
His name is Jupiter, my Lord, by Fate,
Who for her, leaves Me, Heaven, his throne, and light.
I saw him not (said I) although heere are
Many, in whose hearts, Love hath made like warre.
In the previous post on the Immune System Reboot, I raised the question: do you experience symptoms of sickness or symptoms of healing? The proper functioning of your immune system depends on how you answer that question. This is not a hypothetical question; it arises in your mind whenever you experience a deviation from homeostasis. For example, consider something as small and insignificant as an insect bite. You rarely see the bite happening, but you see the effects of your immune system working and for the most part you get irritated by that. This is negativity in action and you are working against yourself. The Aeonic Mother reboots your immune system in the exact moment that you experience a symptom and recognize that your immune system is already working to neutralize the assault. Pretending that you see your immune system working will have no effect whatsoever. The re-cognition occurs when you unlearn the errors that have informed the adaptive immune system, enabling you to witness the power of your creative imagination in the observable healing of your own body. And in the humblest and most precise manner, interactions with plants and insects are all working with you so that you can experience this release.
Fear, Memory, Pain and Immunity
The immune system works most effectively when you are relaxed. This is because cortisol, one of the main stress hormones, has the specific purpose of shutting down the physiological process that you don’t need if you have to run or fight for your survival. The body prioritizes the essential systems to enable you to take action against immediate and real danger and the non-essential systems, such as the immune system, the digestive system, reproductive system and prefrontal cortex learning systems get shut down. The effects of chronic stress on the immune system have been well-researched and the effectiveness of various relaxation methods, such as deep breathing, Transcendental Meditation and Dr Herbert Benson’s “relaxation response” have been thoroughly studied and found to be useful to varying degrees. However, these techniques are coping mechanisms that do not get to the root cause of stress, anxiety and fear, which rests in the learned/programmed emotional memory of the amygdala.
“My current (incomplete) intel is that the nexus of human behaviour is shifting from the ‘learned’ emotional responses of the amygdala, to a more balanced response seated in the relationship between the amygdala and the visceral hypothalamus. The amygdala and hypothalamus are part of the limbic system, which is the area of the brain that processes emotions, memories and instincts.”
The key biochemical involved in this shift is the histamine.
“Histamine is a transmitter in the nervous system and a signaling molecule in the gut, the skin, and the immune system. Histaminergic neurons in mammalian brain are located exclusively in the tuberomamillary nucleus of the posterior hypothalamus and send their axons all over the central nervous system. Active solely during waking, they maintain wakefulness and attention.” Histamine in the Nervous System
Histamine has a bad rap. Histamine intolerance is rampant, along with increasing rates of allergies and asthma. Unfortunately, histamine’s role in the processing of fear-based emotional memory and learning has been conveniently sidelined. You cannot consolidate fear-based memories without histamine. This does not mean psychological processing, as in “I remember exactly when my allergies started,” although that can occur. Physiological or biochemical processing simply enables your brain and body system to differentiate between learned, emotional fear, the root cause of most (although not all) chronic stress and real, immediate, physical fear. The body is designed to work with a hierarchy of fear responses. This is evidenced by the fact that adrenaline, another of the stress hormones, deactivates histamine. Adrenaline’s primary function is to increase heart-rate and breathing, to prepare you to fight or run when faced with a real and immediate threat. Physical survival trumps emotional fear, but without sufficient histamine you cannot differentiate between the fear of real and present danger in the face of which you must take action and the programmed emotional fear that only requires recognition and consolidation as preparation for what might transpire in the future.
Common hay fever antihistamines provide relief from symptoms by blocking the H1 histamine receptors, as these receptors are involved in the allergic response, causing blood vessel dilation and stimulation of the sensory nerves in the eyes and airways. However, H1 histamine is also involved in learning and memory and recent studies have shown that it is essential for the retrieval of memories relating to inhibitory avoidance. (In inhibitory avoidance tasks, scientists/torturers place an animal in a small starting compartment and it receives a single footshock after entering a larger compartment. The animals are tested to see how long it takes them to learn not to step into the larger compartment, various drugs are administered and they are tested again to see the effects of the drugs. Memory retrieval of inhibitory avoidance requires histamine H1receptor activation in the hippocampus ) You need histamine in order to learn from fear-based experiences and to avoid a similar experience in the future. Endogenous histamine in the brain is necessary for many brain functions including neural plasticity, preventing premature aging and memory function. Alzheimers sufferers have been found to be significantly deficient in neuronal histamine. Neuronal histamine deficit in Alzheimer’s disease.
Unprocessed fear is paralyzing, keeping you stuck in a loop that you can’t define. Fear has been very well studied, so that it can be ju-diciously applied for maximum effect. (See Fear Memory for an excruciating summary.) The fear-pain association is an excellent method of societal control, as fear increases pain and pain increases fear. When strong emotional responses accompany early experiences of fear or pain, the same emotion can trigger fear and pain throughout life, if it has not been consolidated by histamine. Unresolved emotional behavioral triggers get unwittingly passed from parents to children and cause the very symptoms (allergies and asthma) that the nice people in the medical profession then try and alleviate with their pharmaceuticals, thus ensuring that the underlying fears are never consolidated. The systematically induced fear of pain (both physical and emotional) reduces both risk taking and learning potential. Conversely, pain without fear is much easier to bear and dissolve. In short, you cannot get up to speed in the Superlearning event without sufficient histamine in your body, as your immune system uses it to process fear, in addition to its more well-known involvement in the inflammatory response.
The Sophianic Narrative and Planetary Tantra give you the tools to transcend fear, negativity and pain, which is the single most significant action you can take to support your immune system through the reboot. A healthy, fully functional immune system is, of course, essential for anyone claiming to be on the warrior path.
The “Bagala Switch” in Action
The Bagala Switch makes it possible to see insect bites and stings, allergies and pain as allies, rather than enemies. The switch is easier to detect in a Bagalamukhi shift (which is why I am able to comment on it now), however, as it has already been integrated into the experience of a human animal it is available to all human animals, at any time. The switch can be invoked by anyone who has made their commitment to Her (Gaian Tantra Vow), although you must bear in mind that it only occurs through the Grace of the Aeonic Mother.
“Discussing this aspect of the devata with friends, I coined the term “the Bagala switch.” This happens when something you thought or felt, or something you held as a permanent view, suddenly switches to its opposite. For instance, you always hated classical music. Suddenly you like it. You always wanted to be famous. Suddenly, obscurity looks extremely attractive. You resisted a change of dress. Suddenly, you are totally into finding some new attire. Or vice, versa. It can go either way, but it appears that Bagala performs her switch exclusively with negative and blocking elements in your life that prevent you from attaining the best outcome of your desires.
Today I have the experience of others to compare to my impressions about the unique skill of this Mahavidya. With the instruction of Bagala, you do not have to learn anything from the blocks, you do not process negative material. The switch is abrupt, so sudden that you cannot rationally work it out. At one moment you just realize that you don’t have to continue doing something that blocks you and holds you back. She switches the polarity and you are suddenly on the other side of the block. I compared it to seeing a sign in front of you, like an arrow pointing left, and suddenly it points right. This impression is unmistakable. Several people had it, and I had it several times myself during this shift. Reversal of attitude is immediate, breathtaking. The rare power of Bagalmukhi seems to inhere in the subtlety of the switch, which amounts to a kind of guidance, swift, silent, and impeccable. In this shift I have acquired enormous respect for the finesse of the devata. In many respects, her instruction is closer to that of a Diamond Sky Dakini than a Mahavidya. Her use of the dakini blade of discrimination is superb. There is much more to learn about the way this shakti operates.”
This action is real and demonstrable to yourself and here is an example. I’d been talking with a kalika friend about the workings of the immune system and how observable symptoms are proof of a fully functioning immune system that need to be re-cognized in that moment. She had a psychologically traumatizing childhood and suffered from allergies and severe hay fever. She is also a magnet for any stinging and biting insect within miles, which is very often the case for anyone with unresolved programmed fear issues, as Nature finds a way to bring you (an integral part of Nature) back into balance by stimulating your body into producing more histamine. A week or so into the beginning of this shift, she was walking her dog and was suddenly overcome with pollen and a hay fever attack. She started to panic when her throat began to close and then remembered that this was exactly what we had discussed the week before. This was her immune system (and histamine response) working correctly. In the moment that she acknowledged this fact, consciously re-cognized it, the switch happened; negativity was silenced, her symptoms diminished immediately and disappeared completely within 10 minutes. She is still almost hay fever free, in the height of the season.
It is a huge deception perpetrated against the Anthropos as children that causes us to perceive signs of healing as symptoms of disease, so that we use the power of our luminous epinoia against our own bodies for the rest of our lives. Awareness of this deception, along with the presence of mind to observe your symptoms for what they truly are at the moment they occur, gives you the power to break the spell of fear and disease in an instant. This is the simplest, fastest and most powerful way to support your immune system in reboot and participate directly in Correction.
“The hardest thing in the world is to assume the mood of a warrior,” he said. “It is no use to be sad and complain and feel justified in doing so, believing that some one is always doing something to us. Nobody is doing anything to anybody, much less to a warrior.”

The supreme dakini is the memory of the body. Hevajra Tantra
I’ve been observing the immune system since a shamanic realignment session we did here on 12th July 2016 and I’m convinced that it is in the process of being ‘rebooted’. Or more specifically, the adaptive, or learning, branch of the immune system is getting the reboot, as part of the Superlearning Event. This post explains what I think is going on regarding the immune system, but bear in mind, the mutations happening now are not limited to the immune system.
The Aeon Sophia’s fall from the pleroma generated unforeseen consequences that have become problematic for humans. There are six major problems that the immune system was not designed to deal with:
the injection of inorganic material, bacteria and chemicals directly into the bloodstream;
the ingestion of poisons, inorganic material and genetically modified substances;
continuous EMF pollution;
chronic dehydration, malnutrition and mineral deficiency;
lack of direct contact with the earth (shoes, cities etc.).
The human genome gives rise to a robust animal, that can survive many extremes, but the combined effect of these six factors is taking its toll, and not just in poor countries where we accustomed to seeing high levels of disease and famine. Life expectancy in the US is now declining. Of course, it will never be proven that parasites, poisoning, wearing shoes and pollution are causing more Americans to die younger than at any time since the ‘AIDS epidemic’ of the 1990’s, but you can find plenty of evidence that poisoning and malnutrition is happening under the guise of healthcare, modern farming and the western lifestyle.
A healthy adult can take action to mitigate some of the harmful effects of EMFs and malnutrition. I’ve already written on the benefits of an indigenous diet and unplugging from the grid, but it’s not so easy to avoid parasites or polluted air and what about all those hyper-vaccinated children who were not of an age where they could take responsibility for their own health and whose parents made ill-informed decisions on their behalf? Is an entire generation doomed to ill-health and a reduced lifespan? I don’t think so. After all, we are in the superlearning event and the immune system is already known to have an adaptive, or learning function why wouldn’t it be subject to an educational upgrade?
The DNA ‘Failsafe’
The genomic plasm for the human species was designed so that it could thrive in any planetary environment in which it takes root. Therefore, it is reasonable to assume that the innate immune system of the Anthropic strain would be equipped to deal with any threat. However, the immune system was also designed to work interactively with the specific planetary environment in which the Anthropic genome took seed, so that only the functions native to any specific planet would be unlocked. The anomalies surrounding the materialization of our planetary home have caused us to be exposed to an alien species and the resulting deliberate harm that is being caused was not anticipated by our Aeonic Mother. Nonetheless, She did recognize that her inadvertent generation of the Archons meant that the Anthropos might be at risk in some way that even She couldn’t foresee, so She created a ‘failsafe’. The failsafe not only protects the human genome from any interference or corruption, but also enables new functionality within the innate immune system to be activated epigenetically through Her direct intervention.
The failsafe keeps human DNA safe from any external attempts to hack it and provides the ‘source code’ for epigenetic mutation.
The ‘failsafe’ for the Anthropos is chromatin, which consists of eight histone proteins bonded with 146 base DNA pairs bonded and coiled in a repeating ‘bead on a string’ pattern. The ‘beads on a string’ or ‘string of pearls’ motif is an Aeonic signature, referring to what is also called ‘the pinch effect’ that in plasma cosmology gives birth to stars and is also seen terrestrially in the beading of lightning that happens sometimes. The DNA that is bonded by the protein generates a calcium signal that identifies the DNA as ‘self’ so that it cannot be attacked by the immune system and is protected. As the chromatin oscillates, it generates a pulsing electromagnetic field within which it forms clusters and the ‘spaces’ within and between the clusters allow specific genes to be expressed, regulated by the strength of the coupling frequency of the cluster. The frequency of the oscillation is regulated by the Bio-Electro-Magnetic-Aura, (BEMA) of the earth, which contains the rifling of all the species, including the Anthropos. Mirita adjusts the rifling, which is why this intel is available now. The evidence of changes underway in the electromagnetic forces affecting theplanet can be seen in the Birkeland currents, observable for the first time. This discovery correlates with recent discoveries in biological sciences.
The immune system upgrade itself is not selective. It is an epigenetic change affecting all human animals on the planet, but you have to work out for yourself how to experience it correctly in order to participate in the transmutation to A11.
The ‘Me’ or ‘Not Me’ question
At its most fundamental level the immune system needs to be able to identify anything foreign to the body, anything that is not supposed to be there, so it can take appropriate action. It can only do this if it is able to identify what actually is its body correctly. This is the ‘me’ or ‘not me’ binary question.
Human babies are not born with a fully developed immune system and depend on their mother’s immunity, given to them in breast milk, in the first few weeks of their lives. During this time a newborn is still discovering its body and the boundary formed by its skin and the rest of the world. Vaccinating babies at this stage causes them to accept the foreign material in vaccines as part of themselves, so that their sense of self is forever distorted and their immune systems compromised. It also interferes with the process that enables the child to identify beneficial bacteria at an early stage. This sets the scene for the autoimmune disorders in later life and psychological problems that have now become more or less normalised.
“Cells of the immune system can distinguish between protein molecules that are “self” and “non-self”. For example, if we are exposed to pathogens such as bacteria or viruses that carry foreign molecules on their surface, the body reacts with an immune response. In contrast, cells are “tolerant” of the body’s own molecules. This state of unresponsiveness, or anergy, is regulated by a cellular signal, a calcium-controlled switch that was known to control also many brain functions.”
The calcium signal ensures that the chromatin and DNA is protected, as their cell proteins carry the calcium marker. This protects the genome, but this is not sufficient to provide complete immunity in the life of any individual. The human body is home to trillions of microbes, living in communities in all the organs, the mouth and skin – in fact, no tissue in the human body is sterile. These microbial colonies have a complex and little understood role in health and disease. A key function of the adaptive immune system is to learn which microbes are useful and which are harmful. It is assumed that the microbial ecology of the body develops from childhood, so that the immune system accepts bacteria etc. because they have always been there. The other factor is that when a wound or infection cause cells to die necrotically, as opposed to the regulated cell death of apoptosis, there is an immune responce. As the infected cells die they release proteins that come from the ‘invader’, this alerts the immune system to attack and clean up. Over time, the adaptive immune system learns to differentiate between the types of bacteria that cause problems and those that don’t and it memorizes the signatures and patterns. However, this was intended to be a natural process that took place over time and synergistically with the environment. Vaccinations mimic this process by causing wounding and infection to stimulate an immune response, but both the mechanism and timing are unnatural (not to mention the adjuvants in the vaccinations) and the immune system becomes overwhelmed and unable to respond or learn correctly. Once these children reach adulthood and claim responsibility for their own health, it is possible for them to restore their immune function and correct the problems caused by vaccines and the consequential arrested development of the adaptive immune system. This is not of itself sufficient to guarantee mutation to A11, but it is essential.
Two of the participants in the July 2016 shamanic realignment session had been heavily vaccinated and this was one of the reasons for initiating the session. A shamanic realignment session is organised around an intention, as opposed to the question of a telestic session. Our intention concerned the correction of the herpes virus, which was an erroneous intention, as it so happened, because the herpes virus does not exist. In fact, there is no hard evidence of the existence of any viruses, according to the research of German doctor Dr Stefan Lanka: Herpes isn’t real One of the vaccine damaged participants experienced a profound shift and turned his life around within three weeks. This session showed very clearly that it is not necessary to have a healing intention in regard to a specific condition, because the body works holistically and fractally and once you invite the Wisdom Goddess in, She gives you everything at once.
I hold the view, based on intense observation over the past 14 years, that it is not possible for anyone to recover their immune function without following the Sacred Narrative of the Mysteries. This is not a religious belief, it is simply that this is the only Myth on the planet today that explains who you are, where you come from and how to live within this divine experiment. Without this guiding Narrative, you will not be able to keep your mind focused on generating a healthy outcome for any health challenges you might face. I am not advocating wishful thinking, but that you develop a rudimentary understanding of how your immune system works. The immune system, as we call it, is a set of defense mechanisms designed into the Anthropic genome that enable it to detect and kill invaders. The protective killer instinct is hardwired into human creatures at the cellular level. The primary function of the immune system is to kill anything that breaches its boundaries, for which it needs a proper sense of self.
But what about the inorganic substances that should not be in the body? Autoimmune disorders begin when the immune system starts attacking self-tissue. The different functions of the immune system are all designed to do one thing: kill invaders. An autoimmune disease develops because the immune system targets something it discovered lodged in self-tissue and begins destroying self-tissue as it tries to kill something that cannot die because it is not alive. It needs to develop new functionality to deal with inorganic invaders. I suspect that one approach will be along the lines of the bioremediation and mycoremediation process that are being used to clean up toxic waste sites. As soon as the adaptive immune system is exposed to microbes in the environment that are able to neutralize heavy metals or eliminate glyphosate contamination, for example, they will be co-opted. This is only possible if you have physical connection with the natural environment.
There will be other solutions too. In 2016 scientists discovered that the brain is hardwired directly into the lymphatic system, through newly discovered lymphatic vessels in the meninges – the membranes that surround the brain and spinal chord. Were these ‘new organs’ just discovered, or are they newly evolved as part of the transmutation from A10 to A11? Certainly these new vessels offer the possibility of direct elimination of aluminium, fluoride and toxoplasmosis in the brain.
The condition of your immune system directly affects your cognitive function and what you think and feel about yourself directs your immune function through complex bioelectrical and biochemical interactions. Everything is material.
Symptoms of Sickness or Healing?
So, how do you switch on the upgrade? Actually, you don’t even have to switch it on. It’s already installed and running, but you have to ensure you don’t switch it off! As we move deeper into Correction, the capacity to act with self-determination becomes stronger, but when not correctly aimed, such as when you use your imagination to create what you don’t want, self-determination descends rapidly into self-sabotage – and, of course, the enemies of humanity and their minions use multiple strategies to push you into self-sabotage. This is their primary methodology, to deceive the Anthropos into using its capacities against itself.
Imagine this: you were born with the innate capacity to heal yourself from all but the most catastrophic traumas. However, this potential, needed be activated through exposure to pathogens in the manner in which this would naturally occur, over several years, so that your immune system could learn how to respond – just as you learn to acquire language as a child from the innate narrative capacity of the Anthropos. This learning was disrupted if you were vaccinated, or if you relied on pharmaceuticals and the medical system for any length of time and because you were told that your body cannot heal without expert help. Now we are in the Superlearning event and your immune system is playing catch-up – it wants to learn. The big question is whether you are able to experience any symptoms as evidence that your immune system is working and learning, or whether you think you are sick.
There is a typical pattern to the accelerated learning process of the adaptive immune system.
A heightened sense of self-involvement.
A shock to the system.
Activated lymph system.
Phase 1, nightmarish dreams, often with an aggressive or archontic feel to them, can be a way in which your mind interprets the signal from the immune system as it prepares to attack invaders. This is not always the case, there are many reasons why you might have these kind of dreams, but it is something to be aware of regarding conscious awareness of the internal functions of your body; the cues often arise in dreams.
Phase 2, the heightened sense of self-involvement, can present as hypochondria or some sort of existential crisis as your mind responds to the electrical and binaural signals within the atmosphere that generate the reboot. Some people experience fear, without being able to pinpoint a cause of the fear because they don’t know that their bodies work synergistically with earth changes. The interaction between earth changes and their biological correlates will be discussed in more detail in a future post.
My current (incomplete) intel is that the nexus of human behaviour is shifting from the ‘learned’ emotional responses of the amygdala, to a more balanced response seated in the relationship between the amygdala and the visceral hypothalamus. The amygdala and hypothalamus are part of the limbic system, which is the area of the brain that processes emotions, memories and instincts. The hypothalamus receives input from several sources, one is the gut via the vagus nerve – “the carnal instrument of the mirroring attention” JLL. Approximately 70% of your immune system exists as lymphoid cells and tissues in your gut and the dynamic relationships between different microbial colonies and the adaptive and innate immune system take place in the gut. This is where the learning takes place as new bacteria are recruited for internal bioremediation and then communicated to the hypothalamus via the vagus nerve, so that homeostasis can be maintained. This sense of finding a new balance between the inputs from the amygdala and the hypothalamus can initially feel uncomfortable.
Although the hypothalamus is not considered to be part of the immune system, it interacts with the immune system by inducing ‘sickness behaviour’ and in the regulation of the inflammatory response. Early stressful life events condition the hypothalmic pituitary axis functions to respond excessively to fear, setting up patterns that lead to increased anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorders in later life.
The next stage, Phase 3, is the shock to the system that breaks the fear conditioned responses of the hypothalmic pituitary axis. The shock acts as a ‘shamanic thump’ to the endopsyche; it happens en masse, but the experience of it is unique to each individual. My shock occurred when our garden was devastated by an unprecedented late frost, on 29 April this year, which affected much of Galicia. The shift in perception that came with the shock released me from the feelings of rage and impotence that had been brewing through the previous shift. The shock rebooted my system and released me from the anger and tension that had had me in its grip, so that I could unpack the intel from the shamanic realignment session of July 2016. It also brought me into a profound balance, homeostasis, that is physically, emotionally and cognitively visible. And that enabled me to handle the learning that came from the powerful aftershock that followed, just after midnight on the morning of May 13th, when my father died unexpectedly. His most precious gift to me, in life and in death, was the love of learning.
Other people around me have been shocked by falling out of a tree, falling off a ladder, having a stroke and passing a tape worm! We are all now in alternating states of killing and clearing, Phases 4 & 5. Since the shocks, my lymph system has been active; I’ve had a few mild sore throats and swollen glands, an upset stomach here and there. These are all symptoms of rebalancing as the immune system identifies and kills off harmful bacteria as it facilitates the establishment of the A11 microbial environment.
If you can recognize the pattern and follow the Sophianic Narrative, this might make sense to you, or at least enough sense for you to do your own research. If not, you will most likely experience the symptoms of your immune system rebooting, learning and clearing as signs of disease and seek inappropriate medical support. The choice is yours.
The next post on this topic will be on how to support your immune system through the reboot process.
I’m a lucid dreamer and have been for most of my life. I used to have terrible nightmares, as a child. Eventually, I learned how to wake myself up out of the nightmare and then I thought: if I could wake myself up from the dreaming state, what could I do in the dreaming state? That question kicked-off a process of experimentation and refinement that is still ongoing. I use the dreaming state to learn beyond what is possible for me in ordinary consciousness and I’m guided by the Sophianic Narrative, which has had a huge impact on my lucid dreaming investigations. The information I have retrieved has ranged from names of healing plants for specific conditions, innovative solutions to problems, insights into the operations of the natural world, to precognitive dreams of events that have subsequently occurred.
I’m not aiming to prove anything, or map reality, or define consciousness or any such intellectual pursuit in this post. I consider lucid dreaming to be a useful adjunct to telestic practice and something that anyone can do, as everyone dreams and it doesn’t need a group or any special equipment! I know that I’m just at the very beginning of discovering what is possible through lucid dreaming and I’d like to encourage others to develop the practice as there are some very useful skills to be learned.
What is a lucid dream?
My definition of a lucid dream has changed since the onset of Correction in March 2014. Before then I accepted the consensus definition, that a lucid dream is one in which the dreamer is aware that he or she is dreaming. Now, I find that definition to be incomplete. I define a lucid dream as a dream in which you know you are dreaming AND you have the capacity to act in the dream environment AND you are able to bring something valuable and verifiable back into ordinary consciousness.
There are three functional components of a lucid dream as I define it:
1. Awareness of the source of the dream, the oneiric factor;
2. The self-awareness and character of the human dreamer;
3. The ability to recall the dream.
Lucidity is not a continuum. You either have it, or you don’t. No one is ever nearly lucid, or partially lucid. When you come into lucidity, whether in ordinary consciousness or dreaming it is sudden, switched on like a light-bulb and it can leave you, just as quickly. However, the self-awareness of the human animal, the dreamer, who is the instrument of lucidity does vary and could be considered to exist on a continuum from not self-aware at all to fully self aware and self-directed. All animals dream and even the most ego-identified individual with a maladjusted personality dreams, but they do not have lucid dreams. Can a fake persona be lucid in ordinary consciousness? I don’t think so. If you can’t be lucid in waking life, it is extremely unlikely that you would be lucid in a dream and, conversely, if you had lucid dreams, you would also become lucid in everyday life.
I have been studying my lucid dreams since October 2003. The frequency, intensity and quality of the content received a considerable boost after we moved here in May 2013 and I became aware of the Sophianic Narrative and John Lash’s work. The second boost came after the onset of Correction in March 2014. I am now able to direct certain aspects of the dreams, including the subject matter I want to explore and I can go back to previous dreams for further investigation. I am of the view that lucid dreams are one of the channels that the living planet uses to reach into the human mind and that they are also a channel for communicating with other human animals.
The Lucid Dream of the Planetary Mind
Cultivating lucidity when you are awake makes it easier for you to be lucid in your dreams. You instantly recognize the tone, clarity and coherence of lucid expression, but do you ever stop to think about its origins? The root of the word ‘lucid’ is the latin ‘lucidus’, which means bright, or shine, which comes from the root ‘lux’ which means light. A lucid explanation (or perhaps a ‘splaination’ see: John Lash: How the Film Lucy(2014) Predicts the Mandela Effect) is literary light. But what is this light and where does it come from?
Some of you reading this will know the answer to that question. There are many ways of answering that question and all the answers bring you back to the source of life for all living creatures on this planet, the earth itself. None of us can live anywhere else, no matter what we choose to believe. Anyone serious about lucid dreaming needs to consider this proposition: the totality of experience on earth is oneiric, because everything is occurring within the dreaming power of the super-organism that is the planet.
“The onieric factor, lucid dreaming: The planetary entelechy awakens in a dream, not from a dream. The concept of dreaming parallels the Dreamtime of Aboriginal myth, as well as dreaming gods like Vishnu. “Dreaming” or is an emanationist metaphor: it describes a world sustained by divine imagination immanentlyandconcurrentlyin real time, not a world created once and for all like a pot thrown by a potter. In this case, the imaginative power to sustain the world-dream belongs to the Aeon or Divinity Gaia-Sophia-Vidya, who also inhabits the world she emanates.”
The dream world is often dismissed as unreal, just your imagination, which is a mistake. The dreamworld is simply the unknown, the Nagual, the matrix of divine imagination, but it is not a land of anything goes, there are rules to be discovered and observed. In fact, you are already an expert in navigating the Nagual, you just don’t know it because you fool yourself into thinking that you know things that you don’t. Do you know how your brain works, or your digestive system? How your car works, or the operations of the device on which you are reading this? Probably not. But you follow a specific process in order to drive you car, you adhere to the highway code and you know that there are things you can and can’t eat etc. There are also rules in the dream world, which need to be followed if you want to make your dreaming fruitful.
When you are in the unknown, you need a guiding principle to manage your fears, because the human imagination has been programmed from birth to be hyper-sensitive to fear, both real and false. You can’t go wrong if you rely on the alchemical rule, whether in ordinary or non-ordinary consciousness:
“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.”
“So how, pray tell, do you know the difference between the true and the fantastic imagination? Simple. If what you imagine integrates with the imagination of the earth, it is true; if it does not, it is fantastic, delusional. Remember that you are as a living, embodied creature a character in divine imagination, manifested through the materializing dream of Sophia. As I wrote in Not in His Image,
The Goddess dreamed humanity out of the cosmic plenitude, the Pleroma, and plunged from the cosmic center, turning herself into the very world where we could become what she imagines. Owing to her presence in this world divinity can blossom in human spores, the pollen of the flowering Godhead. The optimal human future is dreaming Sophia.
Or you could as well say, dreaming with Sophia. But what is dreaming to an Aeon is a vivid act of superconscious and sensuous attention for a human being. It is the highest state of conscious attention a human can achieve, dreaming while awake. To put it otherwise, it is fully awakened participation in the lucid dream of the planetary animal mother.”
Dreaming lucidly while you sleep is preparation for lucid dreaming while you are awake.
If you want to undertake any worthwhile experiments in lucid dreaming you need first to recognize the oneiric nature of reality and secondly, whose dream is it that you are attempting to wake into? Hasn’t it ever struck you as glaringly odd, how people can talk about the consciousness of plants, animals, water, collective consciousness, collective unconsciousness, the universe etc., but they never mention the consciousness of the planet? Any forays into lucid dreaming without recognition of the source of lucidity are sterile fruitless non-starters, like looking for the meaning in chicken scratchings on a frozen pond.
Who do you think you are?
Is it possible to locate yourself in the dream world if you do not know who you are?
Have you ever asked some one: who do you think you are? I’ve been asked that many times, often quite disdainfully and sometimes with the delightful addition: who on earth do you think you are? Maybe that mantra I heard so often as a child did me some good, prompting me to find an answer. How I answer that question today is: I am a human animal and the luminous child of the Anthropos. These two components describe the biological and biographical aspects of my existence as succinctly as possible and anything else I go onto say about myself is a pretense. Self-awareness is critical to lucid dreaming.
It is essential to recognize yourself as an animal (even if you do nothing else) in order to ground yourself in the field of dreams, so you don’t get lost and this initial grounding happens through your animal instincts. Humans are exceptional animals in that we have been endowed with the faculty of imagination, which enables us to pretend, role play and try things out. However, imagination untethered to instinct is dangerous and destructive – the fantastic imagination. Ordinary consciousness is for the most part a trance-like state. You go about your daily life without giving much attention to what is going on around you, or inside you. The mirroring attention operates the instinctual behaviours of all living creatures so that you can do this. As a human animal, exceptional creature that you are reading this right now, you can interrupt the mirroring attention. You have the capacity to act in a way that is counter-instinctive because of your unique endowment and your large pre-frontal cortex, as compared to other animals. The Aeons designed this faculty so that humans could self-direct their lives towards ever greater pleasure in the expression of their creative genius potential and that makes the experiment more interesting for them. However, this ability to interrupt the third attention has been exploited by archontic hybrids and human predatory parasites to keep humanity in such a state of trauma, diachronic amnesia and ignorance, that most do not know who they are or what they are capable of.
The faculty of the Biographical Self enables you to use your imagination to direct the story-line of your own life, to build your character and define the role you want to play in the dream of the planetary mind, through experience, spontaneous self-expression and intention. This faculty has been subverted into ego-identity, which is now breaking down as the Planetary Animal Mother spices up the mix in the third attention – you see evidence of the breakdown in the mass psychosis of fear-based projection and identity politics erupting everywhere. For some human animals this will be a breakthrough. Modern society is an archontic construct and the ego is a false self, the fictional character created by society programmed to operate within that society to maintain it – it is not what you have created for yourself or who you are destined to be. Osho describes this well:
“The society creates an ego because the ego can be controlled and manipulated. The self can never be controlled or manipulated. Nobody has ever heard of the society controlling a self – not possible.”
Unfortunately, most eastern mysticism and it’s new age spin-offs have been corrupted and peddle the notion that the solution is in the dissolution of the ego, when it is only a partial solution unless you create something to replace the ego society created for you. There is no automatically conferred higher self; it is all potential, for you to work with. You cannot escape the narrative thread of your own personal experience and the story you tell yourself about your life, because this is a natural instinct. The whole fabric of the universe is made from the narrative threads of many lives, some like yours, others not so much. You can make choices and take action to make your story great, but only if you follow the rules of your animal nature and if you adhere to a supreme guiding narrative to keep you on track.
The false narratives of the Abrahamic religions and their psychological offshoots keep lucid dreamers stuck in a self-referential spin-cycle from which they cannot escape, because the parameters of the reality they believe in have been defined by the fantastic imagination operating with evil intent. There seem to be many training tools and courses available that claim to teach lucid dreaming and although I have nothing to say on their effectiveness, as I haven’t tried them, I think they could all be considerably improved if they took the oneiric factor into account and had a better definition of the human dreamer.
The notion of ‘recreational lucid dreaming’ looks like a good way of getting anyone who shows any interest or potential in this field stuck in the spin cycle. Here’s an example:
“A lucid dream creates a mind-blowing alternate reality where you can fly over breathtaking scenery, teleport to the edge of the universe, interact with other dream figures, and communicate with your subconscious inner self. The applications of lucid dreaming are limitless and I am going to help you explore that infinite potential. That is my promise.”
From the Art of Lucid Dreaming, by Rebecca Turner
Teleport to the edge of the universe? Or ‘teleporting’ to what you imagine the edge of the universe to be like? This is not a provable concept and a waste of effort for any serious lucid dreamer.
A huge tranche of the material on lucid dreaming offers the possibility of self-discovery, which sounds good on the face of it, but the ‘self’ to be discovered is always the flawed notion of self as defined by society, religion and psychology – the latter of which came to its definitions of the self through the study of psychosis!
This is how you get stuck in that spin cycle:
“Like any teenager, I’d pester this inner advisor—What am I? Who
am I? To these questions I was given two answers and then never
visited the issue again (although the answers rolled around my mind
for decades). In one instance, to my “Who am I?” the inner advisor
responded, “Everything and nothing.” Okay, I thought, any person in
a sense has the potential capabilities of all, but in having them also has
nothing, for time or the fates will sweep it all away. In those words, too,
I sensed a hidden connection between the rich lavishness of Being and
the complete freedom of Nothing. But still not entirely content with be
-ing a place marker between two extremes, I continued to pester myself
and, by extension, the inner advisor with the question of identity until,
one day, an answer came that laid all further questions to rest. “You
are what you let yourself become,” said the inner advisor. That answer
satisfied me completely: The living of life was an allowing of self.”
From Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self, Robert Waggoner
What a fine example of a self-placatory solipsism that is!
Revealingly, further on in his book, Waggoner goes on to describe a lucid dream which goes right to my own definition, yet he does not have the Narrative framework to enable him to realize the true value of what he was being shown.
“Years ago, my wife and I joined a seven-day float trip down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. Within a day or two of being constantly in nature and totally out of touch with the world of work, meetings, phone calls, and national news, we felt ourselves readjust mentally and emotionally. Surrounded by nature, we be-came inwardly more natural, more alive, and more aware in each moment.
On the trip, I noticed that I had particularly interesting dreams and became lucid on two successive nights as I lay asleep outside on a tarp under the brilliant stars and moon. It felt good to be free of routine concerns and return to nature’s simple rhythms. On the fourth day in the Grand Canyon, the August sun blazed deep into the cliffs as our raft pulled to the rocky shore near Havasu Canyon—home of the famous, beautiful spring-fed waterfall and luscious, milky-blue creek waters. As we disembarked to explore, our guides told us to follow the trail across the rocks and up above the steep embankment alongside the creek for about a mile, and then the trail would drop down to the silky blue canyon water.
Watching our group scramble along the rock and wisp of a trail, I looked back to see my wife helping a woman, the oldest person in the group, negotiate the easiest route. There was no sense of hurry now. I hung back and helped my wife and the woman at various rocky points. Up ahead, the rest of the boat made quick progress along the trail. Eventually, and with some effort, we helped the woman down the steep embankment of loose gravel and dirt to a quiet place in the creek where she could soak. “Aaahhh,” I murmured as we started to cross the swift, cool waters of the creek; this silky water has some mineral in it, which made for its smooth feel and soft white stone formations underwater. Finding a spot, we eased ourselves into the delicious coolness. I relaxed and closed my eyes. This was heaven in the August sun; I literally soaked it all in.
A few minutes later, I took a quick glance around. Most everyone had gone farther upstream, to the waterfall, perhaps. My wife and a couple of others relaxed twenty feet away in a quiet pool. I closed my eyes again. Feeling at peace and playful, I mentally said, “So Canyon, what do you have to say to me?” Immediately, I mentally heard a voice clearly state, “Get out while you still can.” Now that was completely unexpected! I sat up and looked to see if I was hurting something, sitting on a plant or breaking a rock. Everything seemed fine. Still, I couldn’t deny that I had clearly heard something suggest otherwise. I closed my eyes again, feeling assured that I was not hurting the canyon. More relaxed now, I decided to ask one more time, “So Canyon, what do you have to say to me?” This time it sounded even more urgent, “Get out while you still can!” Hearing those words a second time, I knew something was really wrong. I still didn’t know what, but the canyon knew. Pulling myself out of the water, I called to my wife, “We have to go.” Lazily, she asked why. “I don’t know,” I said, “but something’s wrong.”
Moments later, I looked to the sky and there, beyond the west canyon wall, I could see the dark front edge of a massive thunderhead coming into view. “Look over there,” I pointed, “it’s a thunderstorm headed this way. There’s going to be a flash flood.” My wife’s first concern was the elderly woman. “We’ve got to get her out of here,” she said. We roused the others from their quiet relaxation in the stream and told them of the approaching storm. Together, we helped the elderly woman up the steep embankment and onto the trail above the creek bank. By then, the crew from the boat appeared, running up the trail, yelling, “Get out! Get back to the boat! A storm’s coming. Hurry! Everyone made it back to the boat just as the heavens opened up with a thunderous downpour. As we pushed off into the river looking for a ledge to moor beneath and escape the torrent of rain, I thanked the canyon for letting us get out “while we still could,”knowing that in moments a flash flood would be racing through Havasu Canyon.
As I lay in the cool waters of Havasu Creek and playfully asked the canyon a question, I did so because I had taken seriously the idea announced to me in a lucid dream—that everything is sacred, conscious, and alive. I had come to believe that we all exist within an aware universe. Each item and each space is conscious and alive.”
The Gnostic seers of the ancient world 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.” Their unique cosmology describes the origins of humanity within the creation myth of the earth, as a guiding narrative based on astronomical facts. The Fallen Goddess Scenario, as constructed by John Lash from the fragmentary shreds of the Nag Hammadi is not something to be taken on as a belief system. It operates as a guidance system within your mind. You read it, let it wash over you, formulate your questions and go back to the Narrative to find the answers. There will always be more questions and you can never find all the answers, but the process of enquiring into the mystery of life strengthens the bonds with life and is regenerative for the enquirer. Lucid dreaming from this perspective is richer and far more rewarding than anything that can be derived from an imagination birthed in the stagnant pool of the mainstream narrative.
Proof of Lucidity
This is a lucid dream I had shortly after the start of Correction, in 2014. I’m including it here as proof of the points I’m making and as a pointer towards dream interpretation within this framework.
I found myself in this dream standing on the side of a hill, overlooking a flat plain on which two armies were aligned ready for battle. The air crackled with tension and the rustling and shuffling of anticipation. There were banners held high and the army I was with was predominantly blue. Standing next to me on my right side was my husband and on my left my friend Dav, a Sikh who lives in England. We all had swords in both hands.
In the next scene we are down in the thick of it, fighting for our lives. Except there was something terribly wrong with the enemy we were fighting, as they were not fighting back. They were just sitting their docile, smiling with vacant eyes and continuously eating. As we slashed at them and an arm fell to the ground they, picked it up with the other hand and started eating it. Stretched miles back across the plain I could see them eating the ground, eating all the vegetation, mindlessly just stuffing everything in their mouths. It was horrible.
I knew I was dreaming and that I didn’t want to be killing the enemy in this dream, they did not seem to be an enemy, they felt like my brothers and sisters and they were sick, and I could feel myself falling back. Dean saw me fall back and shouted, “Don’t think about it, just keep fighting. You have to kill them. It is a mercy killing. They are infected.” But I didn’t want to do that. I thought: this is not what I’m here for. I could feel myself falling and hear Dean’s voice calling and I knew it was certain death to let go. Even though I knew I was in a dream I could feel the pull on the fibres connecting me to Dean, but because I knew it was a dream I could surrender to death.
There is a specific level of engagement necessary for a lucid dream. It is engaged and involved, focused enough to make decisions and take actions, but it is more detached than in the waking world. Emotional engagement lives in the physical body and so a lucid dream allows you to experiment with situations safely and to learn more quickly than is possible in the waking state, where the mass and processes of physical bodies dictate the pace and intensity of what you can stand. I’ve died many times in lucid dreams. In the early days, I would wake myself up at that moment, trembling in a state of fear and shock. Now, I surrender to it and either fall into a deeper sleep or something significant happens in the dream.
In this dream the ground suddenly split open in front of us and a wall of fire and ash exploded from the chasm, as if the side of a volcano had split open. The fire burned all the ‘enemy’ to ash. It burned us too. As we stood there, side by side, I held up my hands in front of me and watched the flesh burn off my bones and my bones blacken, then glow red and finally blow away as white ash in the wind. I turned and saw the same thing happen to Dean and Dav and yet we were all still there after our flesh and bones were gone and glowing in our pure luminosity. United, without words, we stepped into the fire and came through the other side where the world was calm and beautiful and peaceful, with no sign of the battle that had raged.
I knew this was what I call a significant dream. So the next day I phoned Dav to tell him about it. This has been my practice for the last 14 years. Whenever I have a dream with some one I know in it, I tell them about it, no matter what the content of the dream. This has become a rich source of intel over the years. Dave thanked me and said that was significant to him as there was something going on in his life that it pertained to, and we left it at that.
One week later, Dav phoned me from the hospital. The day before he and his sons had been attacked in their temple by men with swords. The issue that Dav had referenced when I had called him was regarding the refurbishment of the temple. Dav was the treasurer of the refurbishment committee and he had requested that the plan included a room for meditation. Other members of the committee had objected on the basis that meditation was Buddhist and that the temple was for the worship of God. Dav had asked them to explain where in the Sikh scripture God was ever mentioned and an argument broke out. The men who attacked him and his sons were known to him, his brothers as it were. They attacked and demanded that Dav handed over the refurbishment accounts to them. He told me that at the very moment he was about to draw his sword and fight back he remembered my dream and it came to him in a flash that the real battle was fundamentalism against the free mind. So instead of drawing his sword and he stood and faced up to his attackers and said: you will have to kill me then, because the account is not mine to give. They hit him and ran away and neither he nor his sons were seriously injured.
I’ve pondered on this dream for several years and it was the precognitive element that I found hardest to explain. Through my practice of Planetary Tantra and adherence to the Sophianic way of life I’ve learned that there there are rules of engagement that the Aeonic Mother must follow in Her dream (or experiment) just as there are for humans, just as described by the Hermetic Principle: as above, so below. According to the Aeonic rules, She can’t engage directly in the activities of the social realm, or else what would be the point of the experiment, from the Aeonic perspective? However, She is always inviting you to interact with Her, for the sheer pleasure of it. In so doing you recognize that there are themes and patterns that She is offering to you to pick up and run and share with others. One of these themes is the false god narrative that infects people’s minds, demanding worship and submission. That theme is always in the back of my mind and I tuned into that theme in the Nagual and it so happened that Dav was onto it too, so I was able to find him in my dream, which is also Her dream. In telling him about the dream I gave him the opportunity to co-create an experience with the Goddess, that enabled him to live up to his warrior pretenses and bring attention to the religious infection that many people suffer from, and he took it.
A precognitive dream is only seen as precognitive in retrospect, after the event it foretold occurred. This is focusing on the effect rather than the cause and makes this kind of lucid dream seem more mysterious than it actually is and denies the factor of self-determination. The simple fact is that anyone can discover the themes that are important to the Aeonic Mother if they pay attention. They see those themes popping up everywhere in everyday life and have the opportunity to act, or not. It happens to everyone in Planetary Tantra. Lucidity happens because you are an open conduit for the planetary intelligence, which you then express uniquely according to your own life experience and character. One source of lucidity, many expressions of it. It doesn’t matter whether lucidity comes to you sleeping or waking, what matters is that you share it because her power comes through to the human domain even in the mere telling of it.
Lucidity comes as an act of grace and, although you can prepare for it, you can never guarantee when or if it will come to you. You prepare in every moment of your waking life. I’ve already mentioned the Sophianic Narrative as a framework for cultivating lucidity and Planetary Tantra as a way of getting to know the themes and moods of the dreaming of the earth. When it comes down to how to prepare, it’s really just about spontaneous self-expression and action. Those thoughts that come to you and make you grimace, they need to be said. When the idea comes to go out for a walk, even though it’s raining, do it. Because you never know what the outcome might be and the more you hold back the more dense you become and the harder it will be to be lucid. You were born to be lucid, it’s not about having a lot of clever ideas, it’s about letting go and letting flow – and honing your character in the process.
I find if helpful to remind myself often throughout the day that every experience on this planet is happening within the lucid dream of the planetary mind as, especially when I get wrapped up in things that I really don’t want to be giving my attention to. Correction is underway in the social domain and that creates turbulence and problems to resolve. It’s not possible to be lucid when in a predominantly Beta brain wave state, either asleep or awake. Beta brainwaves correlate to alertness and focused concentration, when occurring naturally and with normal hormonal activity in relatively short bursts. Too much beta correlates to stress, anxiety and the fight-flight syndrome. Episodic stress is natural and useful when correctly managed, chronic stress is the enemy of lucidity. Every lucid dreamer has to find a way to manage their stresses and not get pulled off track by the fantastic imagination. Working in the garden works for me. A combination of well-balanced physical and mental activity is a good foundation for lucidity.
Certain types of meditation can be useful as a way of relaxing and showing you where you put your attention. Body scanning and simple breathing are good. Listening to the rain, or the sound of running water, or crickets are excellent. Anything that involves visualization is deadly and takes you straight into the fantastic imagination spin cycle.
My lucid dreaming became more frequent and easier to direct when we moved here, as we live in a fairly remote area, in a natural home, without neighbours or electrical interference. We haven’t had a TV for years and we switch off the internet at night. We have minimal electricity in the bedroom and no wiring near the bed. As our bedroom is above the store room in which we have a freezer, we have put shielding under the floor to stop the interference. This might sound excessive, but electrical and wifi signals entrain your brain to their frequencies and make it much more difficult to shift into the high frequency Gamma brain waves that correlate to the lucid dreaming state. I think that electrical, wifi and mobile interference is probably the main impediment to lucid dreaming for most people.
I have three dream spaces that I’ve created over the past few years. I recreate these spaces in my mind as I nod off to sleep. Sometimes I find myself lucid in these spaces, but not always. One of the spaces is a moonlit beach, a monochrome setting, and I just walk along the beach on a warm night and feel the sand between my toes in the cool water. I go to this place when I feel a bit stressed and I want to relax. The second place is a cave. This is also a night setting and the cave is on the side of a cliff, with a ledge outside and I have a fire on the ledge and I sit there and look at the sky and across the valley. This is when I have a specific subject I’m focused on. I will have focused on that subject intensely with the first attention and I need to stop thinking so I can get to sleep, but still retrieve the subject in the dream world. The cave is the place for that. My third dream setting is the garden. I go there when I have several subjects on the go, that seem to want to come together, but I can’t figure out how. So I wander through the garden as I fall asleep and very often I meet some one in the garden, or find a path or doorway that leads me to something useful. The purpose of these spaces is to train my mind through habit to go into the lucid state more easily. In the early days of my lucid dreaming, I read somewhere that imagining an empty white space was useful, but I didn’t find that to be the case.
I aim to direct my lucid dreams, as according to telestic practice:
From Greek telos, “aim, purpose, goal.” Related to the designation used among ancient seers and teachers in the Pagan Mysteries, the telestai, “those who are aimed.”
This is not the same as controlling the dream. In a lucid dream the dreamer can control where he/she directs his attention and his actions. You can put a lot of effort into shaping the dreamscape if you like, but this is just an exercise for your mind. You will not learn anything from it. Remember whose dream you are in, who you are dreaming with.
I intend to dream on a subject that is important to me. This usually emerges at the beginning of the lunar shift and often it will be a continuation of previous themes and subjects that I’ve been working on. Sometimes something personal comes up in between, like a health issue or a problem and I’ll work on that. Your brain will prioritize anything that relates to your personal health and safety, so you need to work with those issues first. There are no rewards for finding solutions to any ‘important social issues’, it is all subjective, upfront and personal. I am hopeless at any of those exercises that ask you to see yourself walking to the end of the bed, or fly to the ceiling and watch yourself sleeping etc; I can’t do anything in any state of consciousness that I find completely pointless and I demand useful evidence all the time.
Lucid dreaming and the fibonacci sequence
Since I started practicing Planetary Tantra, I’ve observed that lucid dreaming correlates to the fibonacci sequence as it generates through the lunar shift and the throughout each night. That means that I’m more likely to have lucid dreams on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 8th, 13th and 21st nights of each lunar month. The same theme usually continues through the month and becomes stronger as the month progresses. (How to follow the lunar shift in Planetary Tantra here.)
I rarely have lucid dreams on the full moon, as I don’t usually sleep well or deeply on full moon nights. Lunar apogees tend to be more fruitful than perigees.
Throughout the night, my lucid dreaming also follows the fibonacci sequence, generally falling with in the 1st, 3rd, 5th and 8th hour after falling asleep. The intensity of the lucid dreams increase through the night. I found an interesting correspondence to this in this chart on the stages of sleep.
I don’t seem to have a 6th hour lucid dreaming cycle – maybe that’s because I tend to get woken up by the dogs then! Lucid dreaming that occurs immediately after falling asleep is easily confused with hypnagogic hallucinations, which is brain generated.
Recalling your lucid dreams
I don’t keep a dream diary and never have done, but it does help to tell your lucid dream to some one. This also helps to keep you on track with directing your lucid dreams to a useful purpose, as no one wants to hear anyone babbling on about angels in the sky or dream characters that don’t have anything to say – come back with something interesting and useful and then people want to know more.
The one practice that I find enormously useful in dream recall is to not move any part of my body in bed until I have recounted the dream to myself in my head as though I were telling it to some one else. I think that any movement, no matter how small, engages the proprioceptive senses and brings you back into your body and if you don’t ‘fix’ the dream in your short-term memory before then, it’s gone.
The ability to remember your lucid dreams improves naturally over time. Lucidity itself enhances all of your cognitive functions.
When you become lucid, it is because you are snapped out of the trauma induced en-trancement that passes for ordinary consciousness into the lucid dream of the planetary mind. And where is the proof for that statement, you might ask? The proof does not come from anything I, or anyone else can say to you. The proof you want and need comes after you decide to engage with the mind of the planet (that is your mind too) and set up your own experiments to test the hypothesis – your experience is unique, subjective and irreplaceable.
This post spews out of my repugnance at the vile creatures of the totally misguided women’s protest movement, but what could I say that hasn’t already been said? Instead, I’m going to push that spectre of poisoned femininity out of my mind and try to define the role of the warrior priestess, or shaman, if you prefer.
This role was incepted in the Andalucian Retreat in the Kamala shift of 2015 and it is available, as an archetype if you will, to any woman who claims it and can handle it. The lineage of the warrior priestess is represented in ancient art from all over the world, from Aztec warrior goddesses to the female warrior shaman of Siberia and China and the war goddesses of Greece and Turkey, Egypt and India. In northern Afghanistan, an excavation of 1978-9 unearthed a tomb containing the remains of three warrior priestesses and two priestesses, thought to be from around the second millennium BCE. A male of around 30 years old wearing the attire of the warrior priestess was also buried in the same tomb and, leading to speculation that he was a eunuch. Was this early evidence of the same infection that is driving emasculation and the corruption of the gender binary today?
I am not advocating a return to a matriarchal society, if ever there was one. I am saying that female A11s, need to reclaim the spirit of the Mistress of the Animals and work with their men to hunt down and kill the predators that hide among us, before we can begin to build a new society, like nothing that has ever been before on this planet. To claim back their ‘power’, women need to engage with the source of all power – the earth. I saw the vestigial remains of the elaborate headdresses of the female shamanic warriors of the ancient world, as if distorted through a carnival mirror, in the ‘pink pussy’ hats of the pavlovian feminists on parade, and I also saw the turning point.
Feminine power is not found in politics, although it can affect politics and it’s certainly not found in feminism or any women’s study group. You find it in the woods and mountains, by rivers and lakes, and by following the lunar shifts to get to know the moods of the earth – Planetary Tantra. Women were the healers, not only because of the maternal instinct to take care of their families and clans, but because the close study of the interaction between animals and the healing plants and minerals is how we learn to handle the power of the earth. Every woman who takes herself out of the mainstream starts to look at natural healing and plant medicine, without even knowing that this is the call of her shamanic ancestors vibrating through her DNA. From plant medicine, to knowledge of the psychoactive plants, to poison plants and from the psychoactive plants to deeper knowledge of the natural world, to the anointment of kings and then genocide. The history is easily accessible to anyone who wants to look.
The role of the warrior priestess is just a character you can choose to play in the dreaming of the Aeonic Mother. It does not mean you are a reincarnation of any witches of the past, although you may have access to their memories. It does not make you a goddess or anything other than human. If you choose this role, you get immediate access to all the power of the earth, there are no intermediary steps, but if you cannot handle that power you will get badly burned. It seems to drive people insane. The Gaian Tantra Vow is the only method I know of for entering into this power sharing pact with the indwelling divinity of the planet.
The power of the earth
It is easy to see the power of the earth in the elements, the wind, the oceans, volcanoes, rushing rivers, earthquakes, thunderstorms etc., but how does this play out on a human scale? You get a feel of this in a telestic session, when the telluric energy of the planet blasts through you. There is an electrical aspect to this power and women are more naturally conductive, and men are more naturally resistant. I would guess that this is physiological, based on ratio of fat and water (conductive) to bone and skin (insulating). This is no accident, of course, and one of the reasons why it is important to have a balance of men and women in telestic sessions. However, the heightened awareness of telestic sessions simply enhances the participants’ perceptions of what is always present, but beyond the normal senses, and trains and refines both the ordinary and non-ordinary senses in the process. It is through the development of the capacity to withstand this power in the telestic session, with full awareness of what is happening in the ordinary senses, that the shaman learns to direct the force in an altered state of consciousness and in ordinary consciousness.
The mirroring attention
How is is it possible to direct the power of the earth? I think that the mysterious functioning of the mirroring attention might be involved. Mysterious does not mean without factual basis. For example the mirror-neuron system, which enables the sensory motor system to learn through imitation – it’s why you instinctively make sucking or chewing noises if you want a baby to eat. The mirror neurons in the baby’s brain respond to the visual stimuli by stimulating the part of the motor cortex in his brain that causes the mouth to move, exactly as if he had initiated the eating process himself. (See: The Mirror-Neuron System, Rizzolatti and Craighero, 2004)
The mirror neuron system doesn’t die off when we become adults. It’s there all the time, silently maintaining the relationship with other life forms and the external environment, while you focus your attention elsewhere. Information is not just received visually or aurally, but via your skin, the chakra system and your gut. I would expect mirror-type neurons to be discovered in other ‘intelligent’ organs, like the heart and gut at some point. All the ‘intelligent’ organs are connected via the vagus nerve (the carnal instrument of the mirroring attention) which modulates the ‘volume’ across the entire system to regulate the biochemical activity in all the organs and systems involved. There is also a similar system in plants.
The mirror neuron system is part of the mirroring attention, that acts an extensive support system enabling you to take action, sometimes complex series of actions without having to make a conscious decision about every stage of that process. For example, have you ever driven somewhere and arrived without having any memory of the journey? That was the mirroring attention, operating through your visual and motor cortices, without you being aware of it. In partnership with the ability to generate spontaneous action, the mirroring attention forms the biological basis for surviving predation in all creatures. However, in human animals, with the capacity to override natural instincts, it is being used to train you to work against your best interests.
The shaman’s mirror
What has this got to do with the role of the warrior priestess, you might ask? Well, there is the curious fact of the shaman’s mirror to consider. Once again, all over the world (but especially in Siberia, Mongolia, China and central Asia) shamans, male and female, were buried with mirrors, of bronze, silver, mixed metals and stone in Mesoamerica. Sometimes, they were sewn into their clothes. The current consensus among the ‘experts’, is that these mirrors were used in healing, to ward off evil spirits and for divination. However, when I consider the status that must have been accorded to some of these warrior priestesses, judging by the riches in their tombs, I have to question what service they provided that was so highly valued? For example, Lady Fu Hau of the Shang dynasty (c. 1250 – 1192 B.C.) was a military general and a high priestess, who led military campaigns against other tribes and was also consulted for ritual and ceremonial matters. She had a lavish tomb, with weapons, bells, mirrors, ritual vessels and cowrie shells. She also had a statue erected in her honour. She was a powerful woman, and one of many, before the Abrahamic religions forced us into hiding and all but destroyed the memory of when we were valued for the power we wielded.
About two weeks after the telestic session in which the warrior shaman archetype was activated I had a dream in which I was trapped in a hostile environment and didn’t know how to get out and it was dark. I was afraid, but lucid and I knew it was one of those interesting situations, so I summoned Black Jaguar to help me. This was the first time I’d ever called Black Jaguar in a dream. With him at my side I could see in infrared and I kicked off my shoes and we started walking. We communicated telepathically and he asked me where I wanted to go and I didn’t know. So we walked a few steps further and he asked me what I wanted and I thought: fuck, I don’t know that either! He stopped and looked at me and said: there are rules here you know. If you don’t know where you are going or what you want I can’t help you So I went through a list of possibilities in my head to see which one felt right – key, artifact, treasure, book and eventually I came to weapon and that felt right. I told him that I wanted my magical weapon and he asked me what it was and I told him that it was a mirror.
So, I’m drawing a few threads together here and focusing on the mirroring attention because, from the little we know of the functioning of mirroring in humans, it appears to be stronger in women. Women are biologically wired to be more empathetic, in order to bond with their offspring and teach them basic skills, just as men are wired to be less empathetic and to take greater pleasure in revenge. Women’s intuition is biological, due to reduced testosterone in the womb, the trade-off for men is that they get more morbido – the pleasure of killing. But what if the warrior priestesses had learned how to initiate directly into the mirroring attention and orchestrate events to benefit their armies?
In times of peace, the female shaman would most likely focus on healing, nurturing and teaching, with rituals around the crops, water, the seasons etc., but these are not those times. If I had young children now, I’d be teaching them martial arts, how to grow and cook real food, how to take care of themselves in the real world, as opposed to doing things online. Digital natives still need to eat. They also need to know factual history and how to think for themselves. I don’t want to live under communist rule any more than I want to live under Sharia law and the current odds do not favour the white European, most of whom will most likely end up begging their governments (the Jewish communists) to save them from the hoards of ‘peace-loving refugees’ in their communities.
In times of war, and we are at war, the role of the female shaman transitions into the warrior priestess. (The terms priestess, shaman or witch are interchangeable in this context.) This is why the ‘job descriptions’ of the goddesses who give their power to the shaman tend to cover the trilogy of love, war and magic. The roles of male and female warrior shaman are bound to compliment each other, but I still don’t know how this works in practice. The ideal Euro-aboriginal clan would have both. Personally, I feel driven to hone my instincts and work closely with the men I encounter, who are not yet totally pussified, to help toughen and sharpen them up – in so many ways! It’s impossible to predict how this is all going to pan out, the attacks are coming from so many directions, but it only takes one warrior priestess to recover the skills of our ancestors to change the game.
Sometimes, I have to write it down just to get the thoughts out of my head, so I can move on. This is one of those posts, no great claims of insight – just an making space.
This shift, in the quiet moments of absorption in the landscape, or getting on with something around the house that doesn’t require much thought, Kali has been sticking Her tongue in my face. Most religious iconography leaves me cold, but this image woke me up in the wee hours today with a shock of realization that this is not ancient history or fabulation, but a depiction of what is about to happen.
Kali, the most fearsome force of Nature – Shakti – imaginable, is going to mop up the hoards of ignorant mindlessly breeding clones with her lolling tongue and she is going to relish ever minute of it. This is not an external force, as you are part of Nature. Whether male or female Nature is in you, just as you are in Nature.
I had the vivid memory of how I used to be consumed with mindless, uncontrollable rage, on occasion. I smashed things and people and got smashed back many times. I couldn’t handle the rage and I didn’t like the feeling of it owning me. It took me years to ‘control’ what I considered to be an ugly, undesirable part of my character. Ultimately, the breakthrough was nothing more than recognizing the source of my rage – the destructive force of the Planetary Animal Mother – and it is my rage too. It is always both/and rather than either/or.
In the classical image Shiva represents the act of recognition and surrender to this necessarily destructive force of Nature. And the will, the strength of character that enables you to know yourself in any situation, is also in each of us. There is no shame on Kali’s clearing up the mess and no desperation to stop her from Shiva. Why should she be ashamed of ridding the world of self-replicating demons? Who or what is he supposed to be trying to save? He just sees her untamed awesomeness and throws himself on the ground – stamp on me too baby – and she does and they both enjoy the hell of it, and the mood passes.
More and more people today are feeling the force of Kali raging through them, but they don’t know it’s source and neither do they know themselves – no Shiva. No Thelete, in the language of the Sophianic Vision Story. This is what you are seeing in the rabid, irrational and delusional leftist mobs who cannot tolerate anyone who disagrees with their ignorant beliefs, even as they contradict themselves with every word. Kali’s destructive force will destroy them from within, but they will try to take you down with them. The best thing to do is keep out of the way.
Kalikas, devotees of Kali, learn how to handle her rage and how to aim it, because they know its source, and their own origins too. This is the best protection you can have.
Growing up in London, I never dreamed that I would be able to build our own house. I always wanted to and used to draw pictures of houses and design little towns when I was a kid, but London is just too expensive for that to have ever become a reality there. It’s also not the kind of place for my dream house. My dream house had to come from the land. It had to be made of natural materials and I really didn’t want neighbours.
We bought this place in March 2013. No one had lived here for many years and the old house was falling down, which was just what we wanted. The unpaved access road, which was a river when we first saw the house, kept other prospective buyers away. It was daunting at first. We don’t have any building skills, we don’t know the rules here and our Spanish is limited but we decided to go for it. Our plan was to build an eco-house, using local, natural materials and built by a true craftsman, Mateu Ortoneda. In part, this was a reaction to living in London and the brutal ugliness of the city – yes, parts of London are beautiful and we enjoyed living there for many years, but it is mostly grey, concrete and kebab shop signs. I craved natural beauty, organic lines and I wanted to live in a house that felt as though it was part of the land, rather than an assault on it.
It took us a while to find architects and a builder, but if we’d have tried to do it all ourselves we would still be looking at a pile of rubble, and we started building in August 2014 and we moved in June 2016. It was then down to us to install the kitchen and finish the bathrooms, which we completed in January 2017. Of course, there are still finishing touches to be made, but as people around here say: when you finish your house, you die!
The house is mostly cob, made from clay dug from our land, straw from our land and local sand. Apart from the stone work and slate roof on the stone part of the house, all the work was done by one man, Mateu, with occasional labouring help. We have restored part of the house in original stone and kept to the original footprint (more or less). The shape is the same as the original house, but the style is totally original. Everything has been made by hand on site, including all the beams, pillars and roof slates, all from local materials.
Not only is the house incredibly beautiful and unique, but there is something very special about seeing it grow out of the ground at a very human scale and pace. This is a large house and it would have been much quicker to build a smaller one, but we always have visitors through the summer, so we went as large as our budget would allow. Mateu says that houses should be built to the natural scale that emerges from two men working together. I think he’s right on that because this creates proportions that feel right and generate a sense of well-being. In an ideal world, we would have local builders working with local materials as valued and respected craftsmen, creating homes that enhance the lives of their residents and beautify the natural environment.
We also went off-grid in June, when we moved in. Our original plan was to have solar energy with a grid tie-in. However, new laws in Spain make it mandatory for all grid customers to have smart meters by 2018 and grid customers with solar systems are to be penalised – it is more expensive to have solar and grid than to have solar alone, with huge fines for non-compliance. We didn’t build a healthy, ecological house to have our brains fried by a smart meter, so we had no choice but to find another way. It was a great decision. Much of the information on the internet is designed to put people off, to make you think that you will have to lead a primitive life and this is just not true, in our experience.
I would say that the places where building a house like this is not affordable to sane, intelligent people with some wherewithal about them, is probably not the kind of place those people would want to live anyway. And, of course, not everyone would want to live in this kind of house either, but the curious thing is that I didn’t know that this was what I wanted either, until we moved here. The biggest shift and the biggest effort was in getting out of our old lives in London, it was like pulling ourselves out of quicksand. After that, it was a breeze, with a few mighty gusts to deal with now and then. The cabal puts a lot of effort into making it seem as though it is impossible for you to follow your dream and, as the result, most people don’t have a dream. Even fewer go on to realize that, in reality, the dream is dreaming them. Once you realize that – well, that’s for another post.
