Several hundred euros, several hundred pieces to put together, eighty-five pages of instructions and fifteen minutes of wind! We salvaged some bits of polycarbonate to make cold frames and the mice ate everything – now we have cats.
Next, we tried a walipini. Walipinis don’t work in clay, with wet winters. The walls collapsed and we’re now using it as a pit for rubble from the house build.
Finally, a greenhouse to be proud of, from Dean and Marcus “Rockstar” of the North:
It’s not completely salvage, we bought the corrugated polyester and acrylic for the windows and the roof rafters. but the rest is made from leftover wood from other projects. The front pillars are chestnut, leftover from the house. We would not have been so ambitious as to use them ourselves, but Marcus said: what do you think about using those beams on the front? It will be beautiful. And it is. The doors are salvaged from a collapsed yurt.
The first stage of the project was to rebuild the stone wall next to the barn. It collapsed in a storm a couple of winters ago. It happened just as we were contemplating going off-grid and the only bit of the wall that collapsed was right next to the electricity meter. It was a huge mess.
There wasn’t much space to work with and we were concerned that the foundation of the wall and the barn had been weakened by the electricity pillar – the wall was very unsteady. So Marcus put in a buttress, using all the old stones and lime mortar. It was his first stone wall and by the time he’d finished he could pick the perfect stone for each place just by instinct.
The part sticking out from the barn is an old bread oven, with the access in the barn – there are people around here that still use outside bread ovens – and a well. The well in the barn was the only water for the house when we moved here, with a bucket on a chain. We had originally thought about putting a separate roof over the bread oven and well and joining it to the green house, but Dean and Marcus decided that a single roof would be much better and we can’t use the bread oven anyway, as all our winter wood is in the barn. We use the well in the barn for the garden, as it is shallow and doesn’t take as much electricity to run the pump as the deep well, but it also goes dry towards the end of summer, so we have to work on another irrigation system for the garden this winter.
So, the frame went up:
The roof went on:
And the windows in.
The greenhouse is well-sheltered. It is on the north side of the wall, but open to the west and shaded by an oak tree in the summer. Two of the windows open for ventilation, as we seem to go from cool to hot very quickly. Spring is very short these days. My aim is to use it to get seedlings started earlier, although it is currently home to tomatoes that I repotted from the garden. It’s December and we still have fresh tomatoes! We have a small butane heater which we’ll use when the nights get colder.
A slight play on words, but a way of describing a recent experience that I want to signal, so you can recognize it when it comes your way. Our Aeonic Mother is using this cosmic force to get Her experiment back on track, as events get to the point of ‘supersaturation’ when you ‘just can’t do it anymore’ you can bet that the situation is about to change dramatically, and delightfully for those of us who really do live Her Story.
This recording is a bit rambling and unedited – it has several pauses while I gathered my thoughts. I’m trusting that I’ve addressed the main points one way or another…..
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.
We went off-grid this summer to escape electrical enslavement and to be able to participate in the transmutation of the species. Yes, that’s right. It’s not about saving money, but about participating in the path of Correction that includes the transmutation of the human species. More about that here: Energy and Transmutation.
We’ve run two retreats with up to 13 visitors and have had no problems, so far. The winter will be different, but we don’t have visitors then and we have a back-up generator. Our set-up includes 10 x 250w panels and a 48v battery reserve, with two inverters.
The biggest challenge for us, by far, was working out our needs. Eventually, we bought a monitor from Efergy, so that we could track the actual usage of appliances over a month or so. It’s impossible to work this out from the information provided by manufacturers. Using online calculators gave us a consumption figure of around four times more than we actually use and it would have made the system prohibitively expensive if we had gone with this.
Why go off-grid?
The decision for us was really simple: Spain has made it mandatory for every household to have a smart-meter by 2018. This might change, if Spain ever manages to elect a government that represents the interests of the people, but I’m not going to make my health and sanity subject to political fantasy. Smart meters are deadly. I posted about this a while back: Enslavement by smart meter and my position has only toughened up on this point. As I’ve decreased my exposure to the grid, the more I’ve come to realize how harmful electricity is – especially with regarding to weakening the willpower of anyone within its field.
Delgado’s experiments took place in the 1960s. He proved how an electrical stimulation to the bull’s brain via an implant caused the charging bull to turn to the right and trot away from the scientist in the ring. In a later experiment he caused the same bull to charge off a cliff. He then went onto prove how implants were not necessary and that behaviour could be modified through the use of low power pulsating magnetic fields. Smart meters produce low energy pulsating magnetic fields.
Controlling the behaviour of the majority of the human inhabitants of planet earth has been a wet-dream of the ruling cabal for quite a while and they’ve put in a lot of effort into making it a reality. Here is a brief summary of electromagnetic mind-control experiments over the past 50 years.
From the physical health perspective, it is undeniable that smart meters, wifi and dirty electricity are a huge contributing factor to most of the modern diseases we face. For anyone who is able to view their life as something beyond their current bodily experience, EMF pollution is a disaster of epic proportions – but not insurmountable.
Transmutation originates from the Planetary Animal Mother and surviving the transition depends on how you live, not in what you read, think or say.
This is the first in what will most likely become a series of posts tracking the transmutation of the Anthropos in real-time. This subject leads into Gaian Alchemy ,as this version of Correction includes human participation in the Earth’s mitosis, through the co-creative power sharing arrangement described in Planetary Tantra. Transmutation is selective and optional; you choose to participate and act accordingly, but, even so, not everyone will be successful. This is an event for the species not the individual, although as individuals we are able to witness the transformation happening through us.
At this point, I can’t describe what this transmutation will look like, but I am aware of certain elements and impediments.
Electrical interference and transmutation
The frequencies for transmutation to A11 are electromagnetic and acoustic, transmitting directly to our DNA. It’s not too different to a seed germinating at exactly the right time due to changes in light, temperature, humidity and the subtle vibrations that fall outside our normal senses. Our ‘germination’ just happens to take place on a longer cycle than that of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. However, there is a problem. Man-made electromagnetic fields from wifi, mobile phone signals and towers, smart meters, electricity and mind-control weapons disrupt the signal so that most of us are unable to receive it or if we are, unable to respond correctly to it.
The evidence now accumulated for the health problems caused by EMFs is undeniable.
However, this is only part of the story. The genetic apparatus consisting of 46 chromosomes is viewed as a library consisting of 46 volumes or books. Each book (a chromosome), contains a text (instructions of how to build an organism) which consists of sentences (DNA) consisting of words (genes). And each word (a gene) consists of 4 letters (certain “chemical letters”), i.e. the “genetic alphabet” consists of only 4 “letters”. The texts, written in the “DNA language”, are first translated by the organism into the “RNA language” and then into the “Protein language”. However, only 3-8% of DNA is protein coding. The remainder is transpositional DNA, which “edits, cuts and splices” the sentences into new meanings and super-conductive DNA, because DNA functions as a fractal antenna. So most of our DNA is dedicated to re-arranging the protein building blocks according to external instructions.
Where are these instructions/signals coming from? Through its fractal antenna function DNA is picking up signals from the Earth, but also from every creature on the Earth and in the galaxy and in beyond; that is the nature of a fractal antenna. EMFs distort this signal and cause stress illness and mutational errors. As the Earth begins her process of mitosis, mistakenly referred to as ascension by some, She is changing Her frequencies too. The Earth has many different frequencies and telluric currents. One example are the Schumann Resonances. The Schumann resonances are quasi standing electromagnetic waves that exist between the surface of the earth and the ionosphere. They were first discovered by Professor Schumann of the University of Munich in 1953 and later confirmed to be an average of 7.83Hz. Since then there have been reports from the Russian Space Observing System of an increase in the average to 8.5Hz, with peaks of 16.5Hz. It is also acknowledged that it is now much more difficult to monitor the Earth’s frequencies due to man-made EMFs. Research has shown how the human body is entrained to the rhythms of the Earth, The Schumann Resonances and Human Psychobiology and much more research shows how man-made EMFs are proven to have a detrimental effect on the functioning of our DNA.
The combination of the change in the Earth’s frequencies as She corrects Her course and man-made electromagnetic pollution have created an intolerable level of physiological and cellular stress for the majority of the inhabitants of the planet, resulting in increased illness and deviation from our full potential. When too much of your energy has to be used to repair the body, there is insufficient left for transmutation. Transmutation takes a great deal of energy.
“Many of the descriptions in the literature associate a sudden reversal of aging or the emergence of a light body with the attainment of “enlightenment”. This phenomenon appears to be mostly, but not always, associated with death. For example: “Very early in the morning of the 25 of October 1419 the 62 year old Tsong Khapa made a series of inner offerings although no one present could understand why.Then his breathing ceased and his body regained the vibrancy of a 16 year old. Many disciples present witnessed the emission of variegated light rays from his body, which substantiated the belief that Tsong Khapa entered the realm of enlightened beings “(Blackman, 1997).
There have been similar descriptions in the native American/Mexican culture, notably Carlos
Castenada’s account of the exit of the nagual/sorcerer Don Juan Matus from the physical world by “burning the fire from within” (Castenada,1981,1984). According to Castenada, Don Juan chose both the time and place to accomplish this feat. “The warriors of Don Juan’s party…vanished into the total light. I saw Don Juan take the lead. And then there was only a line of exquisite lights in the sky. Something like a wind seemed to make the cluster of lights contract and wiggle. There was a massive glow on one end of the line of lights where Don Juanwas” (Castenada, 1981).
The specifics of a master selecting the method, the time and the place of his or her exit from the physical world is common to many cultures and religious traditions and is often associated with the emergence of a light body (Blackman, 1997). Exercising choice in this manner lies outside the normal experience of most human beings who are overtaken by death. The death of the Tibetan master Milarepa generated reports of (i) two identical bodies that were being worshipped at two different places (an example of bilocation), (ii) a body that was impervious to burning on a funeral pyre and (iii) a body “transformed into a radiant celestial body, as youthful as a child eight years old” (Lhalungpa, 1982). The above reports all pertain to the question of survival after bodily death. They imply that the human body, under certain rare circumstances, is capable of generating a corporeal entity that survives the cessation of life on earth.”
You can imagine how reading that passage caught my attention; I’ve been tracking Don Juan for a few years now and just sniffing out the Tibetan masters and to find them both mentioned in a scientific study is a bullseye. I think Kelleher is on the mark with his description of how transposons work regarding human transformation. There are many other studies linking transposons with mutations, but these are mostly disease causing and erroneous. That’s because the granular details of the effects are not considered within context; ie the conditions of the laboratory experiment in which we are enmeshed, the levels of atmospheric, electromagnetic and biochemical pollution we face every day and the fact that the setting for the experiment (the planet) is also going through Her own transformation. Nonetheless, many of us sense something different going on.
Up until recently, you could only catch glimpses of anthropine transmutation through the pinhole lens of scientism or religion’s calculated misdirection. These distorted visions of transhumanism, life after death salvation or escape from the cycle of samsara get a lot of airtime, but is that the reality you want to select yourself into? This is the bloody line between metaphysics and everyday living: if you go to see a doctor for every pain or illness, with every visit you give away some of your innate self-healing ability and move a little closer to becoming a hybrid-human app. If you think sex is sinful, you necessarily limit your enjoyment of it and if you think your body is just a vehicle for your soul, you will never be able to transmutate within it. The nature of reality is inseparable from our perception of it and our participation with it. So, how do you imagine this possibility? How do you live it?
Carlos Castaneda talks about energy in The Power of Silence:
“From where the average man stands, sorcery is nonsense or an ominous mystery beyond his reach. And he is right–not because this is an absolute fact, but because the average man lacks the energy to deal with sorcery. Human beings are born with a finite amount of energy, an energy that is systematically deployed, beginning at the moment of birth, in order that it may be used most advantageously by the modality of the time.
The modality of the time is the precise bundle of energy fields being perceived. I believe man’s perception has changed through the ages. The actual time decides the mode; the time decides which precise bundle of energy fields, out of an incalculable number, are to be used. And handling the modality of the time–those few, selected energy fields–takes all our available energy, leaving us nothing that would help us use any of the other energy fields.
The average man, if he uses only the energy he has, can’t perceive the worlds sorcerers do. To perceive them, sorcerers need to use a cluster of energy fields not ordinarily used. Naturally, if the average man is to perceive those worlds and understand sorcerers’ perception he must use the same cluster they have used. And this is just not possible, because all his energy is already deployed.
Think of it this way. It isn’t that as time goes by you’re learning sorcery; rather, what you’re learning is to save energy. And this energy will enable you to handle some of the energy fields which are inaccessible to you now. And that is sorcery: the ability to use energy fields that are not employed in perceiving the ordinary world we know. Sorcery is a state of awareness. Sorcery is the ability to perceive something which ordinary perception cannot.”
Don Juan lived a sorcerer’s life, which enabled him to die a sorcerer’s death. The Sophianic Narrative, with its intel on the nine previous failed experiments with the Anthropos and the promise of the 11th, had not been recovered at the time of Castaneda’s writing. You can read about this here: Goddess to the Rescue – The Kalki Avatar in Sophianic Perspective. Individuals cannot escape death, but the Luminous Child is immortal. The question is: what qualities of A10 go into A11? How we manage our energy has to be one of them.
This is not new. The alchemists, bereft as they were of the treasures of the Mysteries, knew this. Their many depictions of the flask are a representation of the luminous egg that encloses the human body and a visualization of the necessity of saving energy for transformation/transmutation/alchemy. I chose this one (from the Ripley Scrolls), as I’ve been looking into the dragon lines today. Dragons are not so much fire-breathing reptilians as representations of the telluric currents of the Earth and how they can bring, devastation, transformation and protection.
Energy Healing for Transmutation
So, here we are as a species, damaged beyond the imaginations of the gods and yet still forming the matrix from which A11 is emerging. How do we participate in this transmutation? Well, I’ll have more to say on this in the future. For this post, the main points are to remove yourself from as much electromagnetic and acoustic interference as you can, so that your DNA can receive natural signals, rather than archontic ones. If you live in a city and want to participate, get out, whatever it takes. In order to have the capacity for transmutation you need to be in homeostasis and in order to get there your Individual healing must be as energy-efficient as possible. I’ll be writing more on this in the future, but some one special sent me this just as I was contemplating how DNA interacts acoustically and electromagnetically to the environment.
Transmutation emerges from how you live, not what you think or read.
I’ve wanted to write about ‘shamanic healing’ for a while, as I’ve always felt distinctly uncomfortable about the term. Recently, I had a direct experience of shamanic self-healing from within the Sophianic Narrative, so I can now describe my understanding of how it works.
The Goddess, in Her Wisdom, designed human animals to be self-healing – all animals, in fact. So, why are you not healing? The reality is that you are continuously healing, more so when you are asleep or relaxed. If you cut your finger, you do not have to say: platelets go to wound, begin coagulation! It just happens. Most of the healing processes of the body are invisible and they work equally efficiently for internal disease as for visible injuries.
When healing (repair and regeneration) doesn’t seem to be happening, it is ALWAYS for one or more of these reasons:
You are continuing with the behaviour/action that causes the problem
You are consciously or unconsciously inhibiting your healing processes
Your energy or life force capacity is too diminished for healing
You were born with a genetic disorder, in vitro or birth related injury
Your self-healing ability is being deliberately destroyed by the enemies of humanity
Your environment internal/external is too toxic
Shortly after seeing the sunset crescent three days into this Swan Deva shift, I received the following insight:
In Correction, everything not done correctly will fail; the extent of the failure is directly proportionate to the deviation from correctness.
Correction commenced in March 2014, when the Aeon Sophia, Mothership and Planet Earth, set Her course back to the Galactic Centre, from whence She came. There is no escaping Correction, it is happening with or without your participation and the evidence is everywhere you look. However, the first place to look is in your own life. If you are not taking care of your body and health correctly, it too will fail.
Traditionally, shamanic healers use ritual and ceremony to ‘trick’ their patients into activating their innate self-healing, just as doctors do with their particular performances. The medical profession even has a name for our innate self-healing; they call it the placebo effect. The healthcare industry is mostly fraudulent and it’s only a matter of time before its mercenaries face the vengeance of those they have harmed. The indigenous healer-shaman, practising his ancestral tradition, is usually born into the role or selected for it by the elders at a relatively young age. I have no doubt that his medicine works with his own people in their natural environment, but it is less effective with people from other cultures. Westerners adopting shamanic traditions from other cultures are less effective than they would be if they practised the shamanic tradition of their own race. Unfortunately most Europeans don’t even know that they have a pagan, shamanic, pre-Christian tradition. Tricking people into activating their innate self-healing has worked for thousands of years, but it will not work for much longer and I have first-hand experience of this.
After my shamanic initiation, I discovered a ‘healing ability’. I’ve witnessed many seemingly miraculous healings, such as tumours disappearing before my eyes, teeth healing, scars disappearing, spines shifting, wounds healing. However, I always felt like a bit of a fraud because I knew I was tricking people, even though it was for a good reason. It was a buzz when people recovered, but the process lacked beauty and consistency and fell short of the standards of excellence demanded by any self-loving devotee of the Wisdom Goddess. I became very disillusioned and focused on one question: would it be more useful to ‘heal’ 1,000 ordinary people, or to kill one psychopath? I was released from my pretending at the end of the Vudasi shift in December 2014 and didn’t do any more ‘healing’ until last week in Andalucia.
Planetary Tantra provides an elegant and robust operational syntax through which to explain shamanic healing. The unique idea underpinning Planetary Tantra is that the Earth, the physical body of the Aeon Sophia, dreams the world into existence and you are living as a character in Her Dream. I am writing these words as the indwelling divinity of the planet dreams it, just as She dreams it as you read them. There is no need to ‘journey’ to other worlds to encounter Spirit and retrieve lost aspects of the psyche, as all past experience, memories, previous incarnations (if you like that idea) exist concurrently and simultaneously in Her Dream. Think about that.
In your everyday waking life it is as if you are in dreamless sleep, from Her perspective. In order to achieve awakened lucidity in Her dream, so that you can interact with Her, you must first know that She exists, get to know Her Story and align yourself with it. Shamanic healing requires an altered state of consciousness in which social programming is weakened and the imaginative faculties awakened. However, only imagination grounded in the Sophianic Narrative leads you into the dreaming of the Wisdom Goddess. Ordinary, ungrounded imagination is an operational outpost of the Zad-run ego and it will take you down many unicorn-filled cul-de-sacs that offer, at best, only temporary distraction from suffering.
“In all thine operations, let the Work be guided by nature, according to the slow progression of metals in the bowels of the Earth. And in thine efforts, be guided in all ways by the true and not the fantastic imagination.”
The aim of our Witch Haven experiment last week was to release and clear fear-based cell memory and related patterns. Clearing and releasing stressful patterns in the body is a vital component of the shamanic recapitulation process. We set our intentions and all took a therapeutic dose of Psilocybe cubensis then did the trauma release exercises together. This was a shared activity as a group, in which we all agreed to be silent witness to each others’ release or expression. Anyone can express what they are feeling at the time, but to bear witness in silence is an important factor in shamanic healing as verbal comment interrupts the others’ process. Things come up in this type of session, memories, pain, emotions, precisely so they can be cleared and released. This was not a telestic session; there was no plan to encounter the Organic Light or to receive instruction from the Light. The higher the dose the further the guides take you into the mind of the Goddess; a low dose keeps you close enough to deal with your own issues. Clearing and releasing is a more accurate description for this process than healing.
In addition to the group release, I had prepared to do an individual release with C. C had suffered a broken jaw about 20 years previously and whenever she attempted to participate in a telestic session the pain became excruciating. I had, mistakenly as it happened, thought that this was a cellular memory issue, a residual pattern held in the cell membranes. However, as I held the points on her head and she focused on the pain in the trance state, I felt the plates of her skull move and settle into the correct position. This was a physical injury and her body was afraid of the correction, precisely because of the trauma that caused it. We did this twice until her skull had realigned, the pain went and she felt the release. This is shamanic healing within Planetary Tantra.
In Planetary Tantra you open up your awareness to the perception that everything is happening at once, even though you can only give your attention to one thing at a time. You experience what you choose to focus on, out of all the other events and processes that are happening simultaneously in your life, based on your desire and guided by the Dakini or Mahavidya on shift. On this occasion the the moon was moving towards the tip of the arrow in the constellation of the Archer, who aims towards the right leg of the Snaketamer, whose talent (amongst many) is that of release and regeneration. Therefore the sky writing reflected our intent: ‘Aim to release’. (With thanks to Saxon for bringing this to our attention at the time.) Our mind-body systems are continuously involved in repair and regeneration. Most repair and regeneration happens when we are asleep, when metabolism is low and the mind is not influencing the processes with fear-based thoughts. Clearing and release are prerequisites for the repair and regeneration processes.
Before this session John drew our attention to a clip from the Thunderbolts Project that explained how DNA operates as a fractal antenna. I strongly suspect that the fractal antenna is the mechanism by which the Planetary Animal Mother realigns our mind-body systems into their balanced state within the planetary environment, according to Her design. At the moment, there seem to be certain conditions necessary for this realignment to take place. These conditions require the individual to experience the problem in a trance-state, to feel safe and with another human animal to witness both the suffering and the release. Immersion in the Sophianic Narrative makes the process safe and once realignment is complete for any individual, the transformation to Anthropos 11 can begin.
2015 was an exceptionally hot and dry year here. The 2014/15 winter was dry and the only rain we had until November was on our Beltane Retreat. At one point in the summer we thought our deep well had run dry and we became very conscious of the water we were using. We are even more conscious of our water usage now, as we are going off-grid this summer and we aren’t on municipal water – we need to pump our own water.
I used to take water for granted when we lived in London, but water awareness was one of Gaia-Sophia’s first lessons here. First, the well ran dry in the house we rented, even though the roof leaked into our bed when it rained! Then when we moved here we had no water in the cabin for a month and that summer, 2013, the gravity well ran dry. We had another month of driving 10 miles to fill up at the public font that brings water down from the mountains. Many people in Spain still use mountain water for drinking that comes from the public fonts that are all over Spain.
The gravity well is our reserve well as it doesn’t need electricity to run. It’s up the hill from the house and the cabin and we laid a pipe so it flows down the hill when we need it. It’s all we had until we put in a deep well and it only ran dry because we lost a lot of water when we put in the pipe. It just doesn’t have enough pressure to support all our needs when we have guests, or to water the garden. So, last summer we opened up the other well that is in the barn. This is about 15M deep, so we could put in a less powerful pump and the plan was to use that to water the food forest. That well ran dry too! The new plan is not to water the food forest.
Most farmers around here don’t irrigate their fields. They grow potatoes, cabbages, pumpkins and corn and every year they plough in cow manure to get rid of weeds and keep in moisture. We are not ploughing and we’re not using cow manure. Cow manure is full of weed seeds and creates more work than benefits. Our strategy involves swales, ditches, woodchips and trees.
The Lie of the Land
Our food forest is on a gentle south facing slope. Two years ago we cleared the straggly pines that were there there and began the process of laying out beds and terracing the slopes. We had the use of a digger for the initial clearing and to lay out the old chestnut beams that were in the house to make the terraces. The terraces are not formal and not dug out; we are just using the beams to support the downhill side of the beds as we slowly build them up over time with mulch and wood chips. The aim is to retain rain water and minimize soil erosion from water running down the slope. We’ve done most of the rest of the work by hand, mostly just Dean and I, with a few hours here and there from various visitors.
We get around 100cm of rain in a year, which should be plenty to keep the garden growing throughout the year – if we can keep it in the ground! The wettest months are November and March, but we can get showers throughout the year and cloudbursts in late summer. This province, Lugo, is named after Lugo the Celtic god who wielded a spear of lightning. Lughnasa, the first week of August (thereabouts) is when he brings lightening and thunderstorms to recharge the earth. Lugh is a Bearer of the Grail.
Our soil is mineral rich, because no one has farmed here for generations. Before the pines were planted about 20 years ago it would have been cleared pasture for cows and before that it would have been native oak and chestnut woods, that still exist in these parts. If you turn your back for five minutes in a field around here, an oak tree will shoot up! However, the soil is solid clay and without the pines providing shade and a constant supply of mulch, it turns to concrete in the summer when the sun beats down. It’s a beautiful and sheltered location, but it’s very hard on seedlings.
We have planted about 50 fruit and nut trees so far. We lost all the hazelnut trees last summer, as the hosepipe wouldn’t reach them, but all the other trees survived. Mature trees are expert water managers. A mature fruit tree can drink nearly 200L of water a day and our aim is to keep as much water in the soil as we can, so that we can minimize watering in the dry months. It might take us a few years to get to that point, as the trees are still young and not rooted deeply enough, but that’s our aim.
Trees are intelligent beings. You might not be able to hold a conversation with them, but that is just as true for many human creatures. If you plant a tree in the right place and support it when young, with the minimum intervention, it will adjust its needs to whatever the Planetary Animal Mother provides. So last year many of the trees dropped their leaves to conserve water because of the drought, but their roots were safe and they are already budding this year, after a mild wet winter. Trees collect rain and transmit it into the soil. It has been shown that broadleaved trees intercept blowing rain and conduct it down the branches and trunk to the soil. The roots then provide a path which carries the rainwater into the deeper soil layers very quickly. Our indigenous species like ash, alder, chestnut, willow, birch, oak, elm and many hedgerow shrubs are known to be particularly effective even in heavy clay soils, like ours. Coniferous trees are less effective at catching rainwater. Trees reduce flooding and prevent soil erosion, as well as providing shade and evening out the temperature extremes.
Ditches and Swales
Everyone knows what a ditch is and a swale looks like a ditch, except it runs across the contour of the land, rather than down it. A ditch moves water away from where it’s not wanted and a swale retains water where it’s needed.
We are using a combination of ditches and swales, to move rain water away from a very waterlogged area and into the swales. The swales hold more water than would stay on the surface and allow it to gradually percolate downhill below the topsoil, reducing evaporation and encouraging strong plant roots as they reach down for the water.
We have dug three rows of swales across the slope, fed by the ditch, so that the parts of the food forest that were dry now have water leeching below the surface. Initially, we put old wood in the swales, as I’d read that the wood preserves the moisture and prevents more evaporation. I thought it might mean less mosquitoes in summer too. But the swales are so full that with the wood that they overflow all over the beds, so we are making adjustments. It also encourages brambles to fill the swales, as they love old wood. We will probably shore up the downhill side with planks over time, as this will prevent wood chips and mulch from filling the swales.
Mulching and wood chips
If you walk in the woods anywhere around here, the earth is protected by a thick mantle of rich, dark leaf mulch. This is what the food forest was like before we cleared the trees, which stripped off and compacted the mulch layer. Mama does not like to be seen naked, so the weeds then grow prolifically to cover the bare soil. We laid thick layers of hay from the fields when they were cut, to keep the earth covered and some of the weeds away, but it doesn’t work as well for growing as wood chips and mulch, so we strip it away when we make the beds. Hay works well to cover empty beds over winter, to keep them weed free and warm ready for planting in spring. It tends to get fungus easily, so I prefer wood chips.
Mulching reduces evaporation so that the soil stays moist in summer. You can mulch with almost any natural material that you can lay down in layers, like cardboard, old wool carpet or straw. However, some materials take longer to break down than others, so if you want to plant shortly after mulching, wood chips are hard to beat. We haven’t got all the beds covered yet. There’s no tree-cutting service anywhere near us and Dean has to drive to the wood yard 10km away and load up the truck, then we have to wheelbarrow it into place. It’s laborious, but the earth and the plants will thank us for it.
Our aim is to minimize our work in the garden and maximize our enjoyment and yield. It’s a two hour job to water the garden with a hosepipe and when we go off-grid that means two hours of running the pump! Working with nature to manage our water makes so much more sense.
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.
