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.”
Yolanda of Galicia, in completion with Shodashi, 2017
In researching my next post I came across this passage from John Lash:
“When Kundalini is raised from its dormant state, higher intelligence blossoms, and there are other effects as well. Gnostic sects such as the Ophites practiced the communal raising of Kundalini to produce an protective envelope against Archontic intrusion. In effect, they held Kundalini, the sexual-spiritual energy locked in the body structure, to be the main instrument of defense against the Archons. The Dialogue of the Savior, NHC III, 5 (85), contains this exchange:
Judas said, “Behold, The authorities (Archons) dwell above us, so it is they who will rule over us.”
The savior said, “It is you who will rule over them. But only when you rid yourselves of jealousy, and take on the protection of the Light, and enter the nymphion (bridal chamber).”
The savior-teacher is emphatic that we have power over the Archons, but he also makes it clear that some human failings impede the use of our power. The Greek word phthonos may be translated as “jealousy” or “envy.” Gnostics considered envy to be the signature of the Archons, as well as the key human failing that makes us vulnerable to their intrusion. “The protection of the Light” comes through activated Kundalini, often described as a lightning-like tide of electrified light that pours through the body. “Nymphion” is a code word for the ambient cell of psychophysical protection generated by high levels of Kundalini.”
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.
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.
On the first day of this Kurukulla shift of 2016, I slipped on a log and fell, banged my head hard and winded myself. This sort of thing has happened before, it used to happen quite often on the first day of a new shift; I’d fall, or cut myself, or get stung by wasps. Bhairavi is my Guardian and She dishes out tough love with a heavy hand, but nothing like this has happened for a while. Was I not paying attention? Had I missed something? The shift was very difficult to read. When I spoke with John about it, he was also finding the shift inscrutable. He said he had the urge to go back to basics and follow the rolling out of the shift according to the Fibonacci sequence.
John and I also discussed ‘Pizzagate’, briefly. We agreed that all the evidence was circumstantial and that no house-hold name is likely to be arrested anytime soon, even though the worldwide pedo network is as active as ever. Nonetheless, I couldn’t stop thinking about the vile mess of ‘spirit-cooking’, ritualistic abuse and the millions of children that go missing each year, with no hard evidence – bodies – ever found. Surely, in this Kurukulla shift, something would break and a course of action would become clear.
I began dreaming about worms and woke up with the distinct smell of sulphur in my nostrils. I always follow my dreams, so Dean and I began taking organic sulphur – MSM. I initially thought this was about parasites, and to some extent it is.
On day eight of the shift, the well-known alchemical image of the Green Lion Devouring the Sun came into my mind and when I looked it up, this was the first version I came to. What jumped out at me was that the two balls on the tail looked like kidneys. On that same day tragedy struck and Nikita, John’s beloved feline companion, died of kidney failure.
Synchronicitous events cue your attention and what you do with the clues depends on your disposition and motive. I use them as pointers, to explore whatever subject I happen to be most deeply involved with at the time. Sulphur, parasites, kidneys, photosynthesis and the worldwide pedocite network? Connections did not jump out at me. So I printed out the image of the Green Lion to engage the second attention and started reading up on sulphur and the kidneys (first attention). What resulted was not transception, ie pure Dakini Intel, but the kind of human-level illumination that occurs when you observe the practices of Planetary Tantra and apply yourself accordingly.
So in this post is about what I’m learning this shift and, as such, a demonstration of how Planetary Tantra guides my process of discovery.
Sulphur in the Body
Sulphur brings to mind a foul-smelling, yellow powder and school experiments with bunsen burners. I have never considered its nutritional value, or its function as a detoxifier, yet sulphur is the third most abundant mineral in the human body. It is found in every cell in the human body and is involved in a wide range of biochemical functions, such as:
Cellular energy production / metabolism.
Maintaining blood glucose levels.
Antioxidant protection – scavenges or neutralizes free radicals and recycles oxidized antioxidan
Blood flow – produces both blood clotting factors as well as anticoagulants.
Joint Health – production of glycosaminoglycans (GAGS), chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid.
Detoxification – by means of conjugation and chelation.
Regulation of DNA replication and transcription.
Digestion – production of hydrochloric acid.
Supports healthy lipoprotein balance – cholesterol, LDL, and HDL.
Adrenal gland support and hormone production – cortisol, aldosterone, testosterone, etc.
Proper immune response – enhancing proliferation of lymphocytes, cytotoxic T cells and NK cells.
Lungs – protects against mucous formation in lungs.
Eyes – decreases cataract development.
Formation of skin, hair and nails.
Source: Sulfur Part II: Sulfur and Sulfur Compounds in the Human Body by Mark J. Donohue
Sulphur has been consistently overlooked as an essential nutrient and no one knows how much we need on a daily basis.
“Sulfur, with an atomic number of 16, is known to bond with almost every other mineral. Sulfur has demonstrated its ability to detoxify heavy metals in conjunction with the transport of oxygen across the cell membrane, thus allowing regeneration. Sulfur is also the key player as a precursor for the utilization of amino acids, the body’s building blocks. Of all of the amino acids, some 70 percent are sulfur-based.”
We do not store sulphur in the body, except for a minute amount in keratin found in hair, nails and cartilage so it must be supplied daily to be effective. Sulphur is passed every 12 hours after being ingested, making our humanure an excellent source of sulphur for the garden! We all need a constant supply of sulphur for cellular regeneration, but we do not know how much we need. One constant is the Sulphur-Nitrogen ratio, which is 1:14 in all mammals, which seems to be very important. (See this study on the relationship between nitrogen and sulphur for more information.)
Nitrogen constitutes 78% by volume of the earth’s atmosphere, but is not available to humans unless it is ‘fixed’ into a form that can be consumed. We can’t breathe nitrogen, although our bodies need it for the amino acids that make up the protein building blocks for skin, hair, muscles etc. The nucleic acid DNA, which makes up your genes, and RNA, which is involved in protein synthesis contains nitrogen, as do red blood cells. Nitrogen is essential to life, yet too much can be harmful. Nitrogen (with oxygen) naturally transforms into nitrates, and ingested nitrates are transformed into nitrites in the body’s digestive system. These nitrites oxidize iron in the hemoglobin, forming methemoglobin, which can interfere with the blood’s ability to transport oxygen to individual cells.
Most of us are probably starved of oxygen, a major factor in cancer, pain, dementia and other diseases because we get too little sulphur, due to mineral depletion in our soils and food. The sulphur is essential to transport oxygen into cells, where it binds to toxins (conjugates) and clears them out – it literally takes out the trash. Too much nitrogen inhibits the blood’s ability to oxygenate cells and I’m guessing that, for most of us, our bodies are having to work too hard on essential functions to maintain the sulphur nitrogen ratio, leaving no sulphur available for regeneration.
In the three weeks or so that we’ve been taking organic sulphur in water I’ve noticed that my thinking has become much clearer and I have more energy and motivation. Initially I had very bad dreams, non-lucid nightmares, such as I haven’t had since I was a child. I think this was my sleeping mind observing the trash being taken out. I also noticed a few joint aches and a mild headache, which lasted for a few days only. I am also eating less. One study has connected obesity with sulphur deficiency, as well as heart disease and Alzheimers: Weston A. Price: Sulfur deficiency
Here is a reference to another, large-scale study:
“The Organic Sulfur Study of the Cellular Matrix is studying the effects of reintroducing such a bio- available sulfur, we call Organic Sulfur, back into our diet through the supplement we call Organic Sulfur
At this time there are 70,000 people in 18 countries in the study that have or are taking this bio-avalible form of sulfur, Organic Sulfur, Through the feedback from the study we have documented significant healing sometimes deemed unusual by the medical profession , It is as if the reintroduction of Organic Sulfur back in the cells has kick started the natural regenerative capacities of the body. The information the study receives from its members shows how amazing the regenerative capacities of the body can be.”
Sulphur in Soil and Food
Elemental sulphur is produced by volcanic activity in the atmosphere and organic sulphur is produced by the same volcanic activity in sea water. The salt in sea water allows the sulphur to be released directly into the water, which is the beginning of the sulphur cycle for all living organisms. Sulphur’s bio-availability is effected by temperature and by the ease with which it bonds with most of the other elements. There is a sulfate, sulfite or sulfide of most of the other elements and this is the source of many compounds known as minerals.
Although many foods contain sulphur most of us are deficient because modern farming destroyed the sulphur cycle. Oil-based fertilizers used world wide, that were developed by Prescott Bush and Nelson Rockefeller, destroy sulphur through heat treatment and the free sulphur in rainwater binds to the other minerals in the fertilizer so that it is not available to plants either. Since 1954, when chemical fertilizers were mandated in the US, epidemiological studies show an increase in cancer and related diseases of up to 4,000%. In contrast with Finland, where chemical fertilizers were banned in 1985, due to concerns about the cadmium content, disease has now fallen back to 10% of the 1985 levels and is still dropping. (Finland also has the best education system in the world, because a healthy society values educating its children.) Icelanders’ low rates of depression, obesity, diabetes and heart disease is also attributed to the high sulphur content of their volcanic soil.
Sulphur content of soil is not generally measured, sulphur levels in food are not studied and sulphur deficiency is not generally considered as a contributing factor to disease by the medical profession.
This is not limited to the US. I found a reference to this study in the UK:
“The survey, which began in 2014 across farms in Shropshire and Herefordshire, showed only 13 per cent of all crops sampled had a result in the normal range, all others were low or slightly low.
The 2015 samples collected showed 55 per cent of crops had low sulphur levels, triggering a high nitrogen: sulphur ratio content of 16: 1 or above.
Andrew Goodinson, of Hutchinsons, says: “A reading of 18:1 would mean a low sulphur status and the need for sulphur treatment for the next crop.”
Sulphur depletion is largely down to reduced atmospheric deposition, however, last season, high yielding crops are likely to have depleted soil resources even further.”
In the next synchronicitous event of this shift, I opened John’s Great Work, A Recreation of the Alchemical Mystery, to where I’d left off reading previously and came to this in the very next section:
The image below is called the Key of Basil Valentine, that reveals a secret in its seven sections:
Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occultim Lapidem
VISIT THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH AND THERE BY PURIFICATION YOU WILL DISCOVER THE OCCULT STONE
“So, what is Vitriol? The riddle suggests that it’s nothing other than the Stone, but the Secret Stone, Occult Stone (Occultum Lapidem), no less. This reminds us of the paradox of the Stone we encountered in Part One of the Course, the Formation Stage of the Work. There we learned how the Stone is used from the outset, even though it is considered to be the goal of the Work; and how it is found everywhere though disfavoured, ridiculed and abused by all………But this Stone, as illustrated in Maier’s Atalanta Fugiens 1617 [illustration depicted in the Course], cannot be the hidden Stone of the Key. No, the Stone at the beginning of the Work is one thing, but the secret of Vitriol refers to something only to be discovered at the conclusion of the Work. Something to be found in the innermost regions of the Earth, Terra. Certainly, we cannot discount the possibility that the actual core of the planet may be meant here – but this interpretation can be left aside for a more symbolic one, consistent with one of our main themes. We know that the alchemists as physicists in their own right, saw how the transformation of the Earth depends upon the catalytic power of the human mass, the unique materiality condensed within our skins; namely our Essense. So this reference to the interior of Terra can be taken to mean the innermost region of the Human Essense, the dose of terrestrial materiality we each incarnate.
What, then, is the innermost part of our Essense (Interiora Terrae)? No mystery about this, really, though we have not had occasion to examine it until now. Within your skin is your interior mass and within this embedded in it, is your skeleton. In the bone structure within your Essense you have the evidence of the penetration of Satanic forces in your being. Traditionally the skeleton is the symbol of Death. Likewise, Ahriman or Satan, the Mythical Being who wastes and consumes the Human Essense, is the Grim Reaper of the Tarot. The bone-structure is that part of your Essense that has already been claimed by Ahriman, the evidence of the infiltration of the Satanic into your constitution.
True enough, but it does not stop there, for with the skeleton you are still not at the innermost region. Within your Essense is your skeleton and within your skeleton is your marrow. The marrow is the innermost. The marrow is the Vitriol.
To conventional, literal-minded science, “vitriol” is nothing but an archaic name for sulphur, which happens to be the Satanic substance par excellence. Where Satan is, you smell burning sulphur. Every genuine alchemist will sometime along the way have the uncanny experience of smelling sulphur without being able to tell where the smell comes from: this indicates a definite, irreversible breakthrough in the Work. It is a maddening, but auspicious event.”
John Lamb Lash, A Recreation of the Alchemical Mystery, 1982-84
I mentioned my investigations to John and he commented as follows:
“The usual translation of the VITRIOL anagram in the sigil of Basil Valentine is “Visit the interior of the earth and there you will find the hidden stone.” But this translation appears to disregard the central term, at the apex of the design, RECTIFICANDO: “I correct” in Latin.”
So, now I have an additional reading of the sigil, that goes like this:
“I correct. (To) discover the occult stone, visit the interior of the earth.”
When John first created the Course in Alchemy, in the late 70s and early 80s, he had not yet compiled the Fallen Goddess Scenario, or begun writing Not in His Image. At that time he translated ‘rectificando’ as ‘purification’, which made contextual sense then. With the compilation of the more detailed map of Correction, the literal translation of ‘rectificando’ has new relevance and the acronym VITRIOL reveals a multi-leveled meaning. The vitriol of our marrow creates stem cells, the biological source of our life and regenerative capacities, but we have been conditioned into demonizing its corrective charge. The DNA in stem cells is essentially fluid, in a pre-responsive state to epigenetic stimuli. Is undifferentiated DNA the ‘occult stone’?
But are we talking here about the interior of the earth, or the interior of the human body? Since our telestic session in November 2015, in which we gave the command to activate the extinction protocols for A10, it has become increasingly clear that the lines of personal and transpersonal experience have converged; every experience is simultaneously personal and transpersonal. This feels like a massive realignment in accordance with the Hermetic principle: As above, so below; as below so above.As I write this, there is renewed interest in the Antarctic region and what lies at the centre of the earth. I’ve been dreaming about Antartica too, although I have to put aside any investigation on that for a later date. My point here is that I have been taking organic sulphur since the beginning of this shift and my perception of BOTH what is happening in the interior of my body AND the interior of the earth is heightened. Everything is material.
As I look into the interior of my body, I remember an unexpected experience from my past. One day, as a child of 9 or 10, I had a ‘school dinner’ for some reason. This wasn’t usual. We lived only a five minute walk from my primary school and I usually went home for lunch, but on this rare occasion I didn’t. I can’t remember what the main course was, but the dessert was semolina pudding and I hate semolina. I told the teacher on dinner duty that I hated semolina and didn’t want to eat it and she said that I had to eat it and if I didn’t I couldn’t go out to play. I remember hating the semolina, hating the teacher and forcing it down. I took my plate back to the serving area when finished, as we were required to do and walked back down the aisle past the teachers table to go out and play. Just as I got to the teacher’s table the hate welled up in me and I threw up my semolina pudding and my lunch right at their feet. Now why would that memory come back to me as I focus on sulphur? The body never lies. I think that the mineral analog to hate is sulphur; everything is material, after all.
Hate has been demonized, literally and now it is being outlawed. There is nothing wrong, nasty, satanic or negative about hate. It is simply the purest expression of your Essense that expects absolutely nothing of anyone else. Hate is crystalline, non-negotiable and squeezed out, from the deepest part of you, the marrow in your bones; ex-PRESSED through your very bones into the world. It sets your personal boundaries. Was I immoral or hateful because I expressed my hate for semolina pudding as a child? I don’t think so, but my body took it literally and purged me of what I hated. Am I hateful now, because I hate pedos, cruelty, anyone who tells me how to live my life and especially people who hide their cowardice behind fake love and semolina pudding (still)? Perhaps. But I’m also playful, joyful, bountiful and many other things besides.
In completion with Kurukulla it is clear to me that it’s time to break the taboo on hate. If you don’t hate something, many things about the world at large, you are either already brain dead or you probably need to take more sulphur. At the most basic physiological level, sulphurhelps your body clear out accumulated toxins so you can function better and see the world more clearly, it helps you regenerate with with the clear pure hate of the Luminous Child that you can experience once again without guilt. Sulphur makes your cell membranes supple and slippery so that the parasites can’t get their hooks into you, literally.
Post script: I have more to add regarding the kidney-vitriol connection, which will be covered in another post.
The telestic method of investigation, also called “instruction by the Light” is a reconstruction of the practice used by the Gnostic seers of the ancient mystery schools of Europe. It is the only method known on the planet that has delivered verifiable evidence of interactivity with the planet, so far. I am using the method to find solutions to real practical problems, such as eradicating the archontic infection, and to learn about the true nature of reality so as to participate more deeply in the processes of life on this planet. The method is not a secret and anyone can try it, although not everyone will be successful.
The word “gnosis” is usually used in reference to some sort of special knowledge, that is considered to be “spiritual”, esoteric and concerned with matters beyond everyday existence. I think of it as “direct knowledge”, meaning knowledge received directly, without any intermediary, from the local source of life on this planet, the earth. “The Light” is the Organic Light (OL), the radiant luminosity that animates all life because it is the naked body of the indwelling divinity of the earth. This is not a belief, but a direct experience of the telestic method.
This summer we held two Planetary Vision Quest Retreats, the unique rite of passage particular to Planetary Tantra, for the “new aboriginals of the 21st century”. There were eighteen participants in total, most were familiar with John Lash’s work. In both retreats several participants encountered the OL for the first time. We enjoyed moments of great beauty. Here are the words from one neophyte, who at 76 years old still retained the stance of a warrior and the innocence of a child:
“I came to your place in pure innocence and curiosity and couldn’t in my wildest fantasy imagine what would happen.
It was the most beautiful and fulfilling experience in my entire life. Now I don’t need to believe anymore – I KNOW that the Earth Goddess exist here and now and can be called upon.
The entire nature was dancing with wonderful colors and patterns before my very eyes and waving for me to take part in Gaia’s dance.
I was not really aware of the moon at first but when I began concentrating on the moon, I saw Her and she is indeed “flirtatious”.
The meeting with her was very intense and real. Her beauty is immense and the challenge is “How much beauty can you take” and I could take quite a lot, but surely not all…”
Hans has since translated the whole of Not in His Image into Swedish, demonstrating the true effect of witnessing the OL, in that it shows up in how you live your life – what you achieve, rather than what you say about yourself.
It is always a fervent desire of all neophytes to encounter the OL, but witnessing the OL cannot be the aim of a telestic session. The purpose of a telestic session is to receive instruction from the Light, which means that participants must have a question prepared and the presence of mind to ask it at the moment they encounter the OL. This is not easy to do first time around. In the age of the mystery schools, neophytes would have undergone a rigourous selection process and have had years to prepare for this moment. We do not have the luxury of such extensive preparation, in this tiny window at the close of the kalpa. Experience has shown that it is a foolhardy expedition even to attempt such preparation in the few days we have together before a telestic session, so we will be changing the structure of future events accordingly. Look out for the Hierophant Programme to be announced in January 2017.
Selection in Correction
Since the onset of Correction, which began in March 2014, it is becoming ever more clear that the Aeonic Mother is calling the shots. Human witnesses can participate in Her Correction on Her terms only. What does this mean?
There is a selection process underway and it is a species level event. There is no doubt that humanity will survive, as all indications are that the Aeon Sophia aims to continue with this experiment and She now has witnesses to Her actions too. However, a mutation of the human species is now underway and a new strain, Anthropos 11 is appearing alongside the pre-existing A10. Although the specific attributes of A11 are still not fully discernible, the failure of A10 is becoming more self-evident by the day. A10 does not appear to be evolving towards the genius level with which it was endowed any time soon, primarily due to the archontic infection and the way it has manifested during this kalpa, (one Aeonic day, or 25,920 years). John’s insight into how this kalpa is coming to an end is very clear and makes perfect sense to anyone of sufficient intellect to understand. See Director’s Cut. The big question for each of us is: how does this play out at an individual level? Now, you want to ask: what’s in it for me? That’s a perfectly valid question, but from now on, in order to stay in the game, you must also ask: what’s in it for the species. A11 consciously operates at both personal and transpersonal levels with simultaneity.
Regarding the initial conditions for selection, are you an individual? The billions of people on this planet who respond with Pavlovian predictability to the dictates of their chosen tribal leaders are not individuals. They play-out to the end of the mainstream movie and then what? Oblivion beckons. Who cares? If you consider yourself to be an individual and act as an individual AND with regard to the contribution you are making to the species, there are still further competencies needed in order to be selected into A11. These conditions are still coming into focus. So far, I can say that you need to be sane and rational, you must have a critical level of intelligence, you must appreciate beauty, your pleasure drives must be intact and you certainly can’t be biophobic. You need to be in good health too, as the transmutation process takes a lot of energy.
Beyond this, there is still another level of selection, whereby after having met the selection criteria set by the Aeonic Mother (whatever they might be) you still have to select yourself in – voluntary self-selection. This seems to be based on your impeccability and how you live up to the pretenses you set for yourself. Those of us present at the Sovereign Moment Retreat here in August, witnessed failure of self-selection for one individual. I had known this young man, we’ll call him ‘S’, for two years and he had presented himself as a dedicated student; he could be funny and seemingly insightful on occasion, but it turned out that he was pretending to be a warrior and his pretending showed up catastrophically in the session. S could not control himself and became hysterical, luckily doing no harm to himself or anyone else. As a species the Anthropos is designed to learn from its mistakes and that often means that we over-extend ourselves and get into hot water, there is nothing wrong with that. However, to learn from a mistake you have to admit the mistake and S failed to do that and went on to make further mistakes, revealing the weak character he tried so hard to hide. Does this prove S is A10, doomed to extinction? I cannot possibly say. My observation is that he did not behave with the excellence or impeccability – arete – of the warrior he claimed to be and therefore, he cannot receive instruction by the Light.
As a contrast, I want to record the most beautiful moment on this retreat, which was when Alex claimed her personal sovereignty. A few of us had the pleasure of seeing how Alex directed PAM’s rage and acted on it with strength, grace and precision. Alex had been battling an illness for a while and in that moment I saw her innate self-healing spring to life.
An addendum to this and coming down to earth with a big, fat bump relates to an experience earlier this year. On this occasion I met a woman who was morbidly obese and had zero personality. This woman claimed to have a multi-millionaire, handsome, yacht-owning boyfriend who wanted to marry her. The obvious question: what on earth does he see in you, was not asked by anyone there, even though we all thought it. Was that kindness? Now that the Maitreya Process is active, I think it is easier to address such sensitive issues as they arise, in the spirit of friendship. The unasked questions, the topics that create tension when they spontaneously arise, these thoughts when expressed in the moment have the power to pierce the thickest armour and release the prisoner trapped inside.
The Command Syntax: interim report
I’ve been working on this since the November 2015 retreat in Andalucia. My command for the Summer Solstice Retreat was: show me the command syntax. In the moment of stabalising the OL I stated the command sub-vocally and Her response was immediate and crystal clear: what do you want me to do? Unfortunately, I wasn’t ready for that and didn’t have an answer.
In preparation for the Sovereign Moment Retreat I studied the following text:
When Pistis saw the impiety of the Lord Archon she was filled with anger. Acting in her invisible form, she spoke in this way: “You are mistaken, blind one — false deity who cannot see. There is an immortal luminous child, the Anthropos, who came into existence before you and who will appear among your spectral forms (plasmata). This luminous child will trample you in scorn just as a potter’s clay is pounded (into a lump). And you will sink away to your proper zone, the abyss (of gravity), along with those who belong to your legion.
“For at the consummation of your work, the entire defect [of Archontic illusion] exposed in the light of truth will be abolished, and will be as if it never had been.”
— On the Origin of the World, 103.15-30
I was groping for the command that would bring this text to fruition, because at that time it was not clear to me what sovereignty was to Her. I went through many variations of killing all the archontic agents and their proxies, but how could the Anthropos recover it’s pride without defeating it’s enemies? And who was going to do it? “The luminous child will trample you in scorn” seemed to be the key. Who is the luminous child and what will cause them to take the requisite action? On the morning of the telestic session, this syntax came to me: show yourself and your method to the Aryan people.
Initially, I considered the term “white people”. However, one of the neophytes at the retreat demonstrated through her actions, that this was not correct. Cheryl does not have white skin, but in her disciplined approach, intellect, beauty and pursuit of excellence, she proved herself to be Aryan. Being Aryan has nothing to do with skin colour. The origin of the term is unknown, except that it was how Indo-Iranian people referred to themselves – Aryan, most likely became Iran. Over time Aryan came to be used in reference to nobility; not the accidental nobility of birth or caste, but nobility of character. Today, just as in ancient times, anyone can designate themselves as Aryan regardless of their skin colour, provided that they live up to the Aryan standard of excellence – arete. Arete is the standard of the luminous child that shines through all those who hold themselves to this standard and when you act in accordance with this standard, in whatever situation you find yourself, the enemies of humanity will be defeated. Correction in the human realm is demonstrated through arete.
So, what is sovereignty to the Aeonic Mother? It means that She now has agency within the human realm.
“During the Sovereign Moment from January 9 through August 8, 2016, the planetary animal mother gained agency in the human world. This expression means that she, an Aeonic power from the galactic center now embodied in a planet, has direct access to the way human animals attend to their experiences. Gaining agency is a key factor in accomplishing her Correction which began in March 2014 after a reset process running for three years from March 2011. Indeed, It is the decisive factor.”
Sophia demonstrated Her method, Her Agency, with panache and humour, just as we moved into completion of the Bhairavi shift.
This crop circle appeared in Wiltshire, England on the morning of the 27th August. This is a very specific swastika, with the four dots signifying that it represents the earth itself. I am not suggesting for a minute that Sophia did this directly. I am claiming that this is proof of Her Agency, in that She affected other human animals to do it and that this is proof of the command syntax and the telestic method, as witnessed by those who were here.
The ongoing challenge is to improve the command content and syntax and to fine-tune the process. More on this in a future post.
The Planetary Vision Quest Retreat is the unique rite of passage ritual for the “new aboriginals” of the 21st century. That is the poets, novelists, dancers, musicians, herbalists, body-workers, stone-workers, animal-keepers, artisans and gardeners who live beyond the mainstream and yearn for connection with the origins of life, pre-civilization and pre-religion. There is only one source of life for the creatures of this world and that is the planetary environment in which we live, the earth. Our lives, our trials and triumphs and the stories we tell ourselves and each other about them, cultural achievements and civilizations, as well as the lost stories of our ancestors hidden in myth and folk-lore; none of these things would exist without the dreaming power of the earth and they will all be lost and forgotten too, unless they are grounded in the earth’s own story.
The living earth is the physical body of the Wisdom Goddess, the Aeon Sophia. Many of you reading this will already know Her Story, the Fallen Goddess Scenario and for some of you this will be a new discovery. The call to the wilderness comes through the ‘Dreamtone’ of the Goddess who is dreaming you into being at every moment of your life. If you answer the call and devote yourself to this particular practice of discovery, you will find yourself on an adventure in magical realism that consecrates your entire existence into the divine source of sentient and animal life. The identification of the living planet as the physical incarnation of the Goddess Sophia, is the unique realization of the Gnostic seers who founded the Pagan Mysteries to teach humanity “who we are, what we have become, whence we have come, where we have been thrown, where we are going, how we are redeemed, what is birth, what is rebirth.”
The Planetary Vision Quest Retreat is grounded in the Sophianic Narrative and follows the teachings of the Terma of Gaia Awakening, through the practice of Planetary Tantra. Gnostic scholar, teacher and nagual, John Lamb Lash brought these treasures to the world and the retreat is faithful to his work and the guidelines he has set in all respects. His web site, metahistory.org, offers free access to all his research and the materials that show the provenance of the Planetary Vision Quest. You can also buy his book, Not in His Image from Amazon. It is not necessary for participants to be familiar with his work, but all applicants are required to read the three basic texts listed below BEFORE applying. Planetary Tantra is open to all, but it is not suited to all and you must inform yourself in order to make that decision for yourself. If you read these texts and find yourself hungry for more, that’s a good indication of suitability, but you must also hold within yourself a pre-existing and deep love for the earth and a fervent desire to get to know Her intimately.
The Planetary Vision Quest Retreat 2016 is a week-long adventure in Galicia, northwest Spain, ‘the land of milk and light’. It is a back-to-nature retreat, in a beautiful and wild location, with no towns or villages within walking distance and most activities take place outside. (To find out more about the facilities click here.) The Planetary Vision Quest includes all the elements of the traditional rites of passage, exponentially amplified by the superiority of the guiding myth, the Sophianic Narrative, and the practices that have emerged through living that Narrative – Planetary Tantra is the only spiritual practice in the world dedicated exclusively to the final 200 years of the Kali Yuga. Each participant in the Planetary Vision Quest will return to the world at large with a greater understanding of how to weave the thread of his/her life into the fabric of the universe and how to live on the tantric path of seeking liberation through desire, not from it – a vastly expanded vision and mission. Participation in the Planetary Vision Quest carries the commitment to be an emissary of Planetary Tantra and to propagate the sacred narrative and you will not get the full benefit of the retreat unless you are able to come with this intention.
The crowning feature of the Planetary Vision Quest Retreat is the telestic session, in which initiates will be guided into a state of cognitive ecstasy using shamanic plants, with the intention of witnessing the Organic Light, the naked body of the Wisdom goddess. Instruction by the Light is the trance-learning technique practised by the ancient Gnostics. This is a very specific process that does not include individual journeying or encounters with imaginary beings. There will be extensive preparation and briefings for the telestic session and de-briefing after.
The retreat covers all aspects of Five Element Planetary Tantra:
Dakini Shifts, the Tantric Zodiac and real sky observation
The retelling of the Fallen Goddess Scenario and perhaps The Legend of the Grail
The Planetary Vision Quest Retreat is precisely calibrated for these troubled times. It is built on John Lash’s work of the past forty years, which itself draws on a lineage that is several thousand years old and also, intriguingly, from the future. This is a robust event for those already practising Planetary Tantra, or with a serious interest in discovering it. It might be considered as an introduction to the path of the warrior shaman, although there is no obligation to follow through in that way.
Qualifications and application process: no formal qualifications or experience are required for the Planetary Vision Quest Retreat, except for the fervent desire to connect with the Wisdom Goddess. However, acceptance is by application only, due to the desirability for gender balance and with regard to the dynamics of the group.
Potential applicants are required, at minimum, to read these essays before registering interest:
I’ve recently been informed that John Lash, a very dear friend of mine, is currently the target of a nasty and libelous hate campaign, conducted by people that he used to consider friends. I intend this post to act as a counter-balance to the lies that will circulate forever on the internet, directed towards anyone who values the pursuit of truth. John has not asked me to write this. I’m doing it because it is my natural instinct to defend a friend and because it gives me the opportunity to comment on a few things that are on my mind.
False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil.
Let’s start with some facts. I first met John on the 2nd November 2014. That is an indisputable fact; it will not change if John moves to Australia, or if I decide never to see him again. Facts are independently verifiable and static. So I can offer lots of facts about our meeting, where it was, who else was there but you won’t find it that interesting, because you aren’t looking for facts. You are looking for the Truth About John Lash. But what is Truth? Would you recognize it if it didn’t conform to your expectations?
It is curious that there is no universally accepted definition of Truth. Some people take that to mean that Truth does not exist. If you are one of those people, don’t waste your time reading any further as you are already lost. Truth is most often described by what it is not: not error, not deception, not self-contradictory. Truth must be factually correct, but comprises of another quality in addition to the facts. That quality rests in the capacity of the witness to perceive the Truth. In looking for the Truth About John Lash, you are in reality looking for the perceptions of a sane human witness, who is not lying or communicating with deception and whose words other sane human witnesses can corroborate.
That said, the notion that Truth is a noun is itself a deception. Consider the legal oath: “I swear by Almighty God to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.” Yet the words of the witness are not ‘the truth’ until determined to be so by the judge and jury, based on their perceptions of the witness, the circumstances, the verifiable facts and corroborating testimony from other witnesses. Truth functions as a dynamic modality, rather than an inactive noun. As such, it operates through the normal senses, observation etc. and through the mirroring attention of two or more human witnesses who want ‘to truth’.
So, in exploring the Truth About John Lash, I will describe my perceptions based on my interactions with the man and his work, which is grounded in the mirroring function that operates between us. As you read these words, you are making judgments based on your perceptions, which reflects your mirroring function too. In order for a mirror to function properly, it must be clean. We clean the mirroring function by examining our beliefs, biases, habits and behaviours and replacing those that we don’t like anymore. It is a totally subjective process that always delivers clarity, nonetheless. And there is no end to it. It becomes a new habit to be refined and replaced and through this process the mirroring function is honed and sharpened. However, failure to engage in this process means that your mirroring function is distorted by the beliefs, biases, habits and behaviours that were instilled in you by others. What effect do you think this has on your ability to perceive Truth? And what happens when you encounter something or some one that does not conform to your preconceived notions of Truth?
I was not Jew-wise before encountering John’s work and, like many other people growing up in a city had Jewish friends, who were good people. I researched the Holocaust issue before meeting him and saw that the much-touted murder of six million Jews is a total fabrication. You must do this research yourself in order to discover Truth for yourself and no one can do this for you because the whole fabric of our modern society is woven from the holocaust lie and you are entrained into it until you break free. You break free through questioning and research that enable you ‘to Truth’ and the process of ‘truthing’ unlocks your potential, which is suppressed by the lies we live by.
When I decided to meet John, Truth was guiding me to a path that I wasn’t sure I wanted to take. It was uncomfortable. I have Jewish friends. I wasn’t sure I was strong enough to take action against those who are responsible for so much suffering, deliberately inflicted. What about my friends? They are not evil. I wasn’t sure that John had anything useful to offer on the subject of eliminating social evil, let alone whether those solutions lived up to the promise of his other work. I went to visit John to see if he was just blowing smoke, or whether he had anything real to offer me on my path.
The Truth About John Lash is measured in how his words and actions operate within the lives of those with whom he interacts. My life has been enriched through knowing him and his work and I am one of many. Enmeshing my life within The Terma of Gaia Awakening that John uniquely brought to the planet has given me focus within a framework and a modus operandi that enable me to live to the fullness of my potential everyday. This includes facing the evil-doers and finding the strength and means to confront them, without losing sight of the breath-taking Beauty of life. My trepidation has turned to pleasure as I discover how I can direct the Rage of the Planetary Animal Mother through my bond with Her and my place in the Thunderbird Formation of the Kalika War Party. I have made new friends and tested the limits of other friendships – no bad thing!
The critical point for most people is the acceptance of the fact that all of the problems we face in the world today hinge on the issue of the holocaust. One of the individuals active in the hate campaign against John told me in an email exchange that he is “Not going to argue the number of Jews killed by Nazis. It’s John’s rhetoric and the rhetoric of his followers towards the Jews now that bothers me. Cults need enemies.” What a neat little soft-shoe shuffle with a do-si-do this is. First, refuse to engage in any discussion of the facts, (shuffle-shuffle). Then complain that you don’t like the language that John and ‘his followers’ use to call out the perpetrators of the alleged crime that you refuse to investigate. (One step forward, one step back – is it a lie, is it not a lie? You’ll never know unless you look, will you?) And finally, let’s make John the problem, because he is a cult-leader and needs to create an enemy to justify his position? (Twist around a back to where you started – not going anywhere fast.) Does this look like the reasoning of an individual who is capable of perceiving the Truth about John’s character?
You must search for the Truth and face it, no matter how ugly, in order to hone your mirroring function.
Moving on……..Let’s talk about ‘hate speech’ for a moment. Many people seem to have a problem with John’s so-called hate speech. That is when he talks about hating the self-selected Zionists and their goyim collaborators who have declared their intent to kill off most of us and enslave the rest. There are three issues here I’d like to address, briefly:
The psychological purpose of hate
The function of hate speech in society
The liberal double standard regarding hate
Hate is a natural emotion that arises when one is confronted by some one who is doing or has done you or your loved ones harm, or is preventing you from doing something you must do. Problems arise when emotions are repressed, not when they are expressed. Repressed emotions weaken the immune system and ultimately lead to the inability to act rationally.
To repress our hatred for oppressors, predators and violators of humanity is to deny us the strength and courage to deal with them. Human animals are innately good, except for the 5-10% of psychopaths, pedophiles and predators. Our goodness prevents us from enacting the ultimate sanction, the taking of a life, against another unless we are driven by personal hatred.
Hate cannot be faked. It is like a compass needle pointing directly to your enemy, so that you can take appropriate action to protect yourself and what you love.
Hate speech in a stable society functions as a safety valve, letting people know that a boundary has been breached. In most cases the expression of hate will only ‘hurt feelings’ and not lead to instability in the community, provided that free speech is allowed for all members of society.
Today, in Europe, we have the situation where non-natives are allowed to express their hate for white European natives, but we are prohibited from expressing our hate for the invaders. As above, it is the repression of the hate denies the community the ability to resolve any problems in their early stages. The self-healing balance of the community is weakened by the repression of the native population and outbursts will become progressively more violent.
The liberal double standard on hate speech means that their ‘hate speech’ against anyone who disagrees with them is acceptable because it is ‘for the greater good,’ because those who disagree with them are expressing hate for the wrong reasons and this is not to be tolerated. Don’t hate yourselves liberals, you are as flawed as the rest of us!
John expresses his hate and describes hate and its purpose in his own words: to protect what you love. This cannot drive anyone to hate, because hate doesn’t work that way. John is not doing and has never done anything to incite hatred. However, natural hate arising when one is under attack cannot be repressed, no matter how many laws are passed. The issue for everyone is to make sure that any hate is directed towards the correct target. Conversely, if you do not have any reason to feel hate in your own life, long may that last. But how can you possibly justify denying others their hate?
Then there is the cult issue. Anyone who bothers to read any of John’s work will see that everything he says is the complete antithesis of any cult. What cult explains the importance of thinking for yourself, following your own desires and has a Terma, not a leader, as the guru?
The Truth About John Lash is that he is a counter-culture genius whose life’s work has been dedicated to recovering the genius potential for humanity to live co-creatively with the in-dwelling Divinity of the Earth. This is no small undertaking and his work is robust and will stand the test of time, long after his petty enemies have drowned in their own bile. I know him to be a man of great integrity. He is generous, courageous, humble, ruthless and totally transparent. His character is absolutely consistent with his work; he walks the talk.
You, gentle reader, must make your own judgment. However, if you really want to discover The Truth About John Lash, look for it in his work and what that inspires in you. If you are a rational human animal who is able to appreciate Beauty you will discover the Truth for yourself.
