In the dark of the new moon before Samhain, four of us initiated the Game of Subtle Alchemy. In that game we play with desires, polarities and the alchemical principles, to reveal our Supernatural abilities.
My game plan for this month looks like this:
SALT PRINCIPLE: Thinking, Attraction, Projection
SULPHUR PRINCIPLE: Feeling, Courage, Masculine
MERCURY PRINCIPLE: Feminine, Masculine detail
How to play that hand?????
The day before Samhain, it rained and rained. The ‘play indoors’ kind of rain I remember as a kid, because I’m old enough to remember playing outside most of the time. A perfect pumpkin carving day!
In previous years, I’ve gone for the traditional fierce jack o’ lantern style, and it’s always been a solo effort. This year, after 32 years of marriage, we made our first pumpkin together…….aaawwww…….and it turned out to be a cutie.
What does this have to do with the Subtle Alchemy Game?
The Mercurial Principle in alchemy is the most subtle. Salt is obvious, in your face, physical reality, albeit with mysterious, feminine depths. Sulphur is most easily recognized as the fiery drives of self-expression, both conscious and unconscious, as well as will and intention – a masculine energy. Mercury has been called the universal spirit, Castaneda’s mirroring attention, present in everything. A great deal has been written about it that sounds clever, intriguing even, yet leaves me none the wiser.
In our game, I drew Feminine-Masculine-Detail in the Mercury Principle and Dean drew Masculine-Feminine-Big Picture. That certainly pinged our attention. But what did it mean?
As we played with our pumpkin, we felt the principle in action, mirroring the ideas, actions and intensities that each of us expressed on our pumpkin project. It’s one of the ways the Universe brings itself back into balance, that can be experienced here on Earth. I wanted to add a dimple (Detail) and Dean didn’t (Big Picture). We could have argued about that, but recognizing the pattern, we laughed and our Tiger Pumpkin remains dimple-less.
As it turned out, the friendly tiger hiding in the alchemical pumpkin had a few morsels to share.
When you look at a carved pumpkin glowing in the dark, you can’t not think about light, shadow and projection.
I used the term Wholistic Projection in Subtle Alchemy, without describing what I meant by it. Projection is no accidental by-product of the psyche – it is nothing less than a Supernatural ability when opened up.
Projection is the mercury of intention, that makes it stick.
If projection isn’t running on full power, intentions fall short of their target.
What drives full metal projection? The fire of self-love, more than anything.
Jung’s original concept of the shadow personality does not imply that there are toxic flaws lurking in the ore of your nascent character, but society only values raw material for exploitation. As children, in our natural, devotional innocence and desire to fit in, we filtered out the parts of ourselves that didn’t fit society’s mould – and if you didn’t do that well enough, there are always plenty of ‘helpers’ with hammers to bash you into shape later.
The result dimmer light, weak projection and less contrast.
“There is no light without shadow and no psychic wholeness without imperfection.”
Carl Jung, Psychology and Alchemy
However, we don’t just project the aspects of ourselves we were trained to dislike – we also blindly project the most precious parts of ourselves onto others. Thinking about it, I wouldn’t be surprized to hear one day, that science has discovered that the entire human genome is projected in every biophoton. As such, most of what we project is necessarily, and thankfully, unconscious. You can never ‘see’ what you are projecting (this is due to the specific workings of the eyes and the different functions of the left and right eye) but you can assess the results by what you attract. Mercury mirrors the content of your projections directly into your soul (sulphur) and that can be delightful, or extremely uncomfortable.
Seeing into Life
Once you recognize this process, you can make the adjustments needed to turn up the power. If projection is the mercury of intention, sulphur is the drive – once you know you are projecting and take responsibility for what you project and what you attract, you can put a little or a lot in the mix.
Projection is part of vision, as is mirroring. Where is the boundary – do we ‘see’ reality into existence?
What are you projecting? And what is bening projected onto you?
Once upon a time used to go on
forever, until the gods created time. In a sense, they co-created
time with the anthropos, as time needs to be witnessed into
existence. Time could well be the greatest discovery of this kalpa.
Much like light, time cannot be experienced directly, but this minor
detail has never got in the way of a nice theory. Scientists love to
come up with theories that describe reality, but they are not allowed
to look at it, because, as everyone knows, that changes everything.
Time exists as a faculty of biologically mitigated consciousness, that enables us to parcel out experience into manageable units, so that we can create meaningful narratives. It is both a dimension and a tool, because dimensions are tools that enable us to frame the vastness of existence within our sensual perception. Time of itself does nothing at all; it doesn’t move, it cannot be saved and it does not heal. The experience of time as extraneously real, flowing from the past to the future, is the result of an opportunistically constructed narrative, designed to trap the imagination in multifarious dead-end simulations. If you want to regenerate and play in the cinnabar fields, you have to break out of the time trap.
is subjective. You make it up, quite literally, in your head. You
are, of course, fully aware of time’s elasticity; how it drags
forever if you feel bad, or are bored, or involved in something
unpleasant. Conversely, how it just flies by when you are happy, or
fully engrossed in some activity, or enjoying good company. These
aren’t anomalous feelings; this is the actual experience of time as
it really is, co-created
geometry of your brain and your
unique biochemistry interacting with your environment, as mediated by
your previous responses.
Time is relative to the observer, because it is created by the
observer. There is absolutely no physical interaction whatsoever
between the concept of time and any objective
is a great release to accept that there is only NOW, and that THEN
exists only as a figment of your imagination, or memory.
Our momentous discovery of time as it relates to motion between ‘fixed’ points, is recorded in the precise alignments of ancient monuments to various celestial bodies, notably the sun and moon, Orion, Sirius, the Pleiades and the Pole Star. Time used to be seen to emerge from natural events; prehistoric people recorded the phases of the moon, they noted the changing patterns of the stars, the cycles of the season and the shadows of the sun. The mysterious wonders of stone circles and pyramids stand testament to the obsession of each culture to place itself in time – so many calendars! Many of them have phenomenal degrees of accuracy, each entirely dependent on location and custom.
Time, as we know it now, did
not exist before the middle ages. Until the invention of mechanical
clocks in the 14th century, the duration of an hour varied
according to the season and where you lived. Even after town clocks
replaced church bells, time was still linked to events, such as
Christian Matins and Vespers, the opening of markets and curfews.
Common people still referred both to solar time and the time of the
clock, which became the familiar “o’clock”.
The global standard time-scale measurement that incorporated solar time into mechanical/clock time, has only been around since the adoption of Greenwich Mean Time in 1847. It was developed to support international commerce. Notwithstanding the efforts of that ignominious little smurf of relativity, the adoption of digital clock completed the separation of time from experience. An analogue clock face with its 12 equally spaced numbers retains its relationship to the 24 hour day. By contrast, if you didn’t know the convention of 60 minutes to an hour and 24 hours to a day, a digital clock could just keep ticking over endlessly and you would be known the wiser. Disconnected from ‘natural time’ we have become absent-minded witnesses to our ageing and entranced by our own faculties of memory and imagination, we meld distinct moments into a seamless blur of past experience, barely punctuated by lucidity.
The tilt of the earth and the
precession of the equinoxes, along with that cheeky little chaos
effect of perpetual mismatch between lunar and solar cycles, created
the opportunity for our ancestors to develop an exceptional tool.
The gods created the building blocks and set them in space and motion
and human imagination took it from there. And what a tool it is.
Every developed culture there has ever been created sophisticated
units of measurements to organize their society. There were religious
calendars, planting calendars, feast and holiday calendars and
eventually tax and debt calendars. The concept of usury depends on
an agreed convention of time measurement. Turkey did not accept the
Gregorian (Roman/Christian) calendar until 1927, Chinese, Buddhist,
Muslim and Jewish calendars are still in use today. In fact, despite
appearances, there is still no accurate measurement of the length of
a day, a month or a year. Do you want to go by solar time, or lunar
time? How about earth time? Earth time in relation to what? Oh
yes, that’ll be you!
The exact mechanics are yet to be determined, but I have no doubt that in the dreaming of the Wisdom Goddess, Her immortal child has already escaped the misty prism of time. It’s just a matter of hanging onto the golden thread and not losing the plot.
Dreaming of the Pole Star Dancer
As I was alpha-waving this post, with signature synchronicity, a friend sent me a couple of presentations that I’ve linked to below. In the first video the presenter explains how that the future creates the past, which then creates the future and the discussion in the second youtube expands on that. The theory goes that this is possible because the cosmos is an eight dimensional crystal, projected into our 3D reality and pixelated into Planck length tetrahedrons that shift around in response to our attention (the observer effect). But who/what is doing the projection? It must be pretty obvious to you by now that it’s everything, the question is: what are you tuning into?
The fractal antenna,
transceiver and energy transducer that is the human mind/body system
is always sending and receiving information with which we co-create
reality at many levels, mostly subconsciously. Interpretation of the
data is dependent on mindset/paradigm and internal and external
The visible form of the human body emanates from the crystalline lattice geometry of the cells, the water matrix and the piezoelectric biomineral crystals that convert electrical energy into mechanical energy and vice versa. Each type of cell in a particular part of the body tunes into a specific frequency range and changes its shape according to its health and level of stimulation, which then affects its biochemistry. Each organ, with its differentiated cells, produces a unique frequency. The whole body is also an antenna/transducer, so mudras, the postures of yoga and the movements of Tai Chi and Qigong create shapes that affect signalling, in much the same way as ‘rabbit-ear antennas’ used to be shaped and positioned on televisions. The shape of your body as you tend the garden affects both tthe environment and you in a very different way than some one sitting on a tractor.
The ‘Human Antenna’ is an archetypal concept, as demonstrated by the ‘Squatter Man’ petroglyphs found all over the world. These are thought to have suddenly appeared in multiple locations within the same timeframe and therefore relate to an event in the sky, as this would have been visible everywhere. According to Anthony Peratt, these images are all depicting a single massive plasma discharge event, although other researchers think there might have been multiple events.
My focused contemplation has drawn me to the Pole Star, currently Polaris in Ursa Minor, aka Little Dipper or Little Bear. Polaris is actually situated in the tail of the Little Bear – curious, don’t you think? A bear with a tail? Or is that a bear with a tale to tell? And when does the tail wag the dog?
Once upon a time Polaris was a dog’s tail and upon another the Little Bear was the wings of the dragon in Draco. Constellations of Words makes a link to the bear’s embryonic tail, that disappears at eight weeks into fetal development. Human embryos also have a tail that is fully absorbed within 8-9 weeks of development, which coincides with the beginning of the axial development stage of skull and spinal column.
Thuban, in the constellation of Draco, was the Pole Star around 2750BC. Draco guards the golden apples of immortality in the Land of the Hesperides. Thuban itself isn’t that interesting, but its close alignment with the celestial north pole was geographically and narratively significant. The Pole Stars were pivotal in early navigation of the globe and in the establishment of longitude. This time period also corresponds to the growth of settlements, agriculture and technology. Thuban ceased to be the Pole Star in around 1900BC, the position was gradually taken up by Polaris, which is said to have arrived in pole position some time in the fifth or sixth century CE – corresponding to the beginning of the European Dark Age.
Having already made the embryo link with the Little Bear, what do you see when you look at the signature of Draco? A dragon, a serpent, a wave, or maybe a spermatozoa?
Before Thuban, the Pole Star was Vega, in the constellation of Lyra. Vega is egg-shaped and the Egyptians associated her with Hathor, the Great Cow-Mother. Her name means ‘Temple of Horus”, ‘Eye of Horus’, terms associated with the pineal gland. Hathor is often depicted with a lyre-shaped face and animal ears, signaling the influence of Vega on our reality, through geometry and sound (frequencies). It’s not even a stretch to see the female reproductive system in some of the Egyptian statues of Hathor. The egg in the cosmic womb, humming into life.
Looking at Polaris
in the night sky and putting these pieces together, I’m getting the
clear impression that the True North end of the imaginary earth axis
also works as a special kind of antenna for the earth. It looks as
if She is showing that She uses ‘information’ from the Pole Stars
in Her imaginary/creative processes relating to the anthropos. I
find a visual connection between the Squatter Man images and that of
the human chromosome and I see the petroglyphs as showing the DNA
cosmic connection. DNA is itself a projection, as Luc Montagnier
Humans need narrative frameworks to make sense of reality and to engage potential – and whatever you are told, whatever you discover, you have to test it for yourself to make it real. The Sophianic vision story puts the source of the human genome as the anthropic plasm in the Orion nebula and explains how it got there. It is the source code for our DNA, which is a projection, but not an illusion. This is not something to be believed, but a guiding framework with which to explore life; it operates as a meta-narrative, as it contains within itself the key to understanding how the rhythm and cycles of entropy and counter-entropy are driven by great narrative themes and love stories, rather than the perceived flow of time.
Did the concept of time ‘leak in’ through the Pole Star and into human awareness? Our ancestors must have been aware of the significance of the Pole Star when they based the archetypal image of the swastika on the positions of the Big and Little Bears around the Pole Star at the solstices and equinoxes.
The ‘dawn of time’
might just have been around 12,000BC. This was when the Great
Pyramid was most likely built with its entrance gallery aligned to
the Pole Star, which was then Vega. (Sir John Herschell who made the
alignment discovery in 1840 originally opted for Thuban, which would
have made the pyramids ‘younger’. He retracted that estimation
when he found that his computations were inaccurate and the
astronomical alignments did not match Thuban.) Why is this relevant
now? By some calculations Polaris won’t be aligned (and even then
not exactly) with the North Pole until 3000AD, others put it at
2100AD, but that is a view through the lens of time.
In dreaming, there is no linear time. In fact, there is no time at all, but there is consciousness. In dreaming consciousness your mind works to find the narrative thread of your life, completely free of the constraints of time because you have no (or very little) awareness of your physical body – an effect of melatonin. This has contributed to all manner of confusion regarding ‘spirit trapped in matter’ etc., but what is the purpose of dreaming? Well, I guess that will depend on whom you ask. From my perspective, as a life-long lucid dreamer, I think it mirrors the process that Sophia uses to create narrative and form from the input She receives from the stars, but in a hugely scaled down and less intense manner. (As above, so below.) This is pertinent now, because as the earth axis/antenna gets closer to the Pole Star the intensity, or drama, of the story She is dreaming intensifies, just as the primary organ we use to receive Her signal is under increased attack. That organ is the pineal gland. Learning how the pineal gland works and how to use it correctly is fundamental to our survival in electromagnetic warfare and to the ‘birthing’ of the immortal child.
Pineal Gland Antenna
In another episode of the Saga of the Magical Child, humans were fully aware of their connection to the stars via a crystalline structure in their skulls. Taoists referred to the Crystal Palace, in the yogic tradition it is the Ajna chakra, or third eye. This image, on a piece of pottery in the National Archeological Museum of Malta, shows highly stylized version of the Squatter Man (also known as the Stick Man) with a faceted downward pointing triangular head, is an indication that early Europeans were aware of this organ too.
We now know much
more about the physiological function of the pineal gland, especially
its role in managing the circadian rhythms, sexual maturation and the
aging process. I’m not going to go into that here, as it’s all
well-documented elsewhere. In my opinion, (unsubstantiated and
simply based on my own experience, insight and reflection) the glands
of the endocrine system all have hidden or unused functionality, to
be brought online by changing our perception and modus operandi
– ie habits. Structural change might or might not follow. The
hidden functionality of the pineal gland, as ‘cosmic antenna’ can
be accessed now because of three key factors:
– our Earth Mother
is now lucid in Her Dreaming;
– humans NOW
recognize narrative, through generations of literature, art, film,
theatre, history and even religion;
– survival of the
species depends on it.
(The species survives, that’s in another chapter, it’s your survival and the quality of life you live that’s in question here. And this isn’t the only option by any means – Sophia is super-abundant in solutions.)
To use the pineal
gland correctly, you need to aim it. (Remember the rabbit-ear
antennas?) What is correct usage? Well, I would say survival rates
pretty high, but I’m not interested in survival on any terms; I
want playful, ecstatic, intense, feeling the wonder of life in every
cell of my body, kind of survival. I’m looking to give birth
within myself to the immortal child and that requires aligning myself
with the imagination and dreaming of the earth. As I began to
question the notion of time, I found myself drawn to Polaris and
looking into the regulation of time in the body led me to the pineal
gland. That non-local link-up has generated a shift in my focus,
from time to narrative and that is informing this post.
I’ve been looking into Taoist Alchemy for a while and after my connection with the Pole Star and the pineal gland, I found this information from Mantak Chia:
“As Above, So Below
There is one point in the sky around which all the other constellations revolve; the North Star point. The North Star is fixed, stationary, motionless. Taoists regard it as the Center, the source of the universe, the Nothingness, or Wu Chi. The North Star is the Gateway to Heaven. In the Tao, the body is a microcosm of the universe. “As above, so below.” Whatever happens “up there” happens “down here.” Hence, the physical body is marked with gridlines and meridians of light around a Center. The Center is called the “Tan Tien”, or “Field of Energy” (Fig. 3).
The idea of a Central Axis – the Pole Star in the firmament and a Cauldron in the body – is a central tenet in Taoist philosophy and alchemical practice. To get to the Center of the body, open the Tan Tien; to get to the Center of the Heavens, enter through the North Star. Both are doorways to the heart of the true Tao, the Wu Chi, from which both Heaven and Earth are born. The Inner Alchemy practice of the Universal Tao fuses the body’s energies to give birth to a spiritual embryo capable of maturing into a deathless existence and of flight inward, beyond time and space, to the source…..
The Darkness environment activates the glands of the Crystal Palace, actualizing their higher powers and providing a “way back” to the Original Source. When the Crystal Palace is open, it becomes illuminated like a million shining crystals. It can give and receive light and awaken our inner knowledge and deepest potentials. It receives light and knowledge from the universe and reflects it to the various organs and glands to enhance them.
The pineal gland helps us to overcome death by taking in external forces and combining them with sexual energy and the Original Force to form an “immortal body.” With this body we can leave the physical body before the final transition (death) occurs…….
In the Tao, the sources of longevity and immortality are within the body, not as a physical womb but a spiritual one. Taoists call this spiritual womb the “cauldron”. The right method to “cook the cauldron” is not to search outwardly for love from others, but to search within the naked and abandoned self. Self-love, or self-intercourse is the way to give birth to the Immortal Self.”
my perspective, the
Crystal Palace links the imaginal cells of the anthropic body into
the mytho-poetic world
of the Aeons, of Supernature and especially Gaia.
Divine Mother is continuously informed by the other celestial bodies
Her own imagination
exists outside of time, as if in a dream. Her thoughts and feelings
vibrate the geometry
our brain/body system and we each make our own interpretations,
the misty prism of time, but
options are available.
I resonated strongly
with some of the ideas expressed here, but not with the specific
meditation described, which is why I’ve omitted those passages, but
the link is there so you can look them up yourself if you are
interested. I omitted them for two reasons:
I don’t find that I’m able to connect imaginatively with any of
the organs in my skull; they are protected from all forms of psychic
– the idea of a beam connecting to the Pole Star to the pineal gland is not how I experience the connection. I experience it as an instantaneous non-local event.
I discovered that I make the connection between Polaris and my pineal gland by looking at images of the pineal gland and knowing that it exists and where it is located in my brain and then forgetting about it and focusing on Polaris. You do need to be in a completely dark room without wifi or EMFs, so that you produce sufficient melatonin. I then form the lightly held intention to make the connection, as in “Let’s give this a go.” and I imagine the Great Bear and the Pole Star as I saw them in the sky and it’s as if a switch has been flipped. The amalgam fillings that I have in my teeth (I still hate the dentists that did that to me as a child) start to throb and I fall instantly asleep and have lucid dreams. When I wake up, something has changed in my life. It might not work in the same way for everyone, but I tend to find that function follows form, so what is the function of the microcrystals in the pineal gland?
This image is from an earlier study by the same researchers, which raised the question of the effects of EMFs and radio frequencies on the pineal gland. Other studies have documented the damage caused by fluoride and artificial light and who knows what the effect of 5G will be. This looks just like an antenna to me, but I think it works instantaneously and non-locally, once switched on and connected with the Pole Star.
The idea I’m putting forward here is that, the pineal gland is an antenna that you can aim at anything. Aiming it at the Pole Star brings through, to you personally, in the form of dreams and visions, exactly the input you need to alter your DNA and transcend the trap of time. Ageing beyond maturity and premature death is a consequence of the precedence you give to time. You need to know the Source and Her MO to have the confidence to follow the guidance. (DNA works on principles of grammar and language, so that you can be part of the story. See the work of Pjotr Garjajev: http://www.rexresearch.com/gajarev/gajarev.htm
This idea is being explored by other researchers, but many are still under the spell of ‘the false deity who cannot see,’ so they tend to look only at the effects of Supernatural actions, rather than the full interaction between the human and the Divine – no epic story is unfolding within and through them. This site metatoninresearch.org has put together a lot of excellent research on the function of the pineal gland. I find it to be misguided in its focus on metatonin and endogenous DMT, but I’ve included these passages as they closely (although incompletely) offer a contemporary Gnostic-scientific description of the Earth Goddess/Pole Star/pineal connection experience.
“Several researchers have also suggested that the pineal gland may prove to be more than just a hormone production gland, it may also contribute visual imagery to our visual cortex, a second visual platform so to speak. The pineal gland may be called the third eye, but it is not a third eyeball. It has no lens, pupil or iris, but it does have a retina. In fact, the pineal gland may prove to be more like a television receiver. Several unique properties of this gland may contribute to the visual aspect of a METAtonin experience. One theory is that the matrix of corpora arenacea crystals (brain sand) in the pineal gland may be able to interpolate scalar holographic-hyperspace information into a physical realm signal that is then converted into photons by piezoluminescent DMT molecules in suspension, if they are present at that time. The photons emitted from the DMT molecules are converted into a neural signal by photosensitive pinealocytes in the gland then sent to the visual cortex via a neural pathway, hence, the television receiver theory. No other endocrine gland or area of the brain or body has such a unique collection of specific biological components…..
Scalar Holographic Reality and the Pineal Gland
In order to investigate the pineal gland further, it is necessary to grasp the nature of reality that the pineal gland is proposed to access: the hidden side or dark side of reality, which Anthony Peake in his book Opening the Doors of Perception calls the Pleroma, a term used in Gnostic teachings. As most researchers have deduced, it is most probable that the Pleroma and our human memory field are both holographic in nature, so this is something we need to grasp. Holographic reality really makes no sense at first because energy as we know it manifests in a very different manner in the holographic realm than it does in ours. On the physical plane we are surrounded by radiated concentric electromagnetic waves, but holographic reality exists in the medium of scalar or parallel waves. These scalar waves are flat….unlike the electromagnetic waves of our physical reality which are always curved, i.e. dispersive, in nature. Electromagnetic radiation, the energy of our reality, radiates in a curved wave from a point source such as a candle or a star. The further a wave moves from the source, the dimmer it becomes. This property of diminishment is not present in scalar reality in which the energy wave does not get weaker or flare out as it moves away from the source.
In a room with a scalar candle in it, the light in the room would be equally the same everywhere, and when one approached the candle it would get no brighter. But a candle, being a point source, is not a good example, if one were in a room where the whole wall was evenly lit up as the light source, that would be more like scalar situation; in addition, the energy from the wall would not increase as one moved closer to it. In scalar reality, therefore, distance is of lesser significance, for it has no bearing on energy levels. In our radiation-based non-scalar world, distance and energy in a way define each other, and define time and entropy as well.”
Time as a tool is
useful for co-ordinating with other people, for travel and for
certain types of planning – I’d like to keep that. But time as a
usurper of life-force energy is no longer in my play-book. As the
concept of time is no longer connected to any natural events or
cycles, its phantom existence is purely digital, a symbolized ‘form’
totally dependent on human habits, behaviour and words to enliven it.
It’s longevity (don’t you just love this game?) is testimony to
the power of language and meaning-making through stories, that has
been endowed in the anthropos, but that also makes it easy to ‘kill’.
You can bring it back whenever you want, because you are given the
power to do that – you ‘make time’ for anything you desire –
you only have to pay attention to your direct sensory experience and
learn how to aim and follow through.
Because time is an illusion held in place by the narrative flow of your own mind-stream, you ‘kill’ it by observing its ‘modeled form’ whenever it appears and replacing the word ‘time’ with ‘desire’, ‘energy’ or ‘experience,’ as appropriate. The past or the future are just different episodes or chapters. Change your language and see how that changes your life.
“If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.” ~ Lao Tzu
A while ago a friend recommended a book: Voices of the First Day, Awakening in the Aboriginal Dreamtime, by Robert Lawlor. It arrived the day after I finished this post and I’ve just started reading it and I’m enjoying it very much.
This excerpt is from Chapter 2:
“Because Indo-European language dictates that we express all our thoughts in past, present or future tense, we have the notion that time is an abstract backdrop moving in one direction, like the hands of a clock, from past to future. None of the hundreds of Aboriginal languages contain a single word for time, nor do the Aborigines have a concept of time. As with creation, the Aborigines conceive the passage of time and history not as a movement from past to future but as a passage from a subjective state to an objective expression. The first step in entering into the Aboriginal world is to abandon the conventional abstraction of time and replace it with the movement of consciousness from dream to reality as a model that describes the universal activity of creation.
The ritual dances and songs that the Aborigines perform every day celebrate the movement from subjective to objective that created the world.”
The southern hemisphere does not have a Pole Star. According to Earthsky.org Sirius will be the Southern Pole Star in the year, 66270! I find a correlation between the existence of a Pole Star in the northern hemisphere and the relentless advancement of ‘civilization’, as compared to the conscious simplicity of the highly ritualized and intentional Aboriginal lifestyle. As Dean and I laid out under the stars, we questioned who was the ‘primitive’ here. Has this entire episode been for nothing? Or have we learned something?
Much is made, in this book and others, of the ‘mistake’ of agriculture. I don’t find growing our own food, co-creating a beautiful garden or subsistence farming to be a mistake. Industrial farming is another story – the fruits of western intellect and effort have been consistently stolen and corrupted by the enemies of life. The horrors of colonization did not originate in Europe, but we are all involved in Correction, consciously or not. As one chapter ends, a new one begins. What are you ‘righting’? What can we learn from our southern cousins? And what is the function of the Pole Star?
Five years ago, I made a batch of yellow dock root tincture, for no
reason at all at the time. It sat stewing silently in the back of my
medicine cabinet, waiting for the moment to make its debut. That
came in early spring this year, when Freya had a digging frenzy in
the garden. She’s not much of a digger usually, so after one
especially strenuous effort, I went out to inspect her work. You
guessed right! She had dug up an enormous yellow dock and was
chewing on the root.
Freya is a rescue dog, so we don’t know her history, but all animals, including humans, will self-medicate given the chance. We do know that she had a full slew of vaccinations just before we got her and when she arrived here, her back was severely hunched and her back legs were stiff, almost paralyzed. She couldn’t run. I suspect that the rabies vaccination was involved, as the shelter did not mention that she had had an injury or any problems before she came to us. Her back eventually straightened, but she still sticks her hind legs out to the side when she runs. She also has other health challenges and some difficulty in managing her emotions.
However, this post isn’t about Freya’s various conditions and how
we treat them; I’m aiming to show how the process of guidance and
learning unfolds when working with a plant teacher, how to work with
the resources available and how perception shifts.
According to Culpeper’s Complete Herbal, all the docks are governed by Jupiter and yellow dock is turning out to be a quite outstanding teacher plant.
“Government and virtues. All docks are under Jupiter, of which the red dock, which is commonly called blood-wort, cleanseth the blood, and strengthens the liver; but the yellow dock-root is best to be taken when either the blood or liver is affected by choler. All of them have a kind of cooling (but not all alike) drying quality, the sorrel being most cold, and the bloodworts most drying. Of the burdock, I have spoken already by itself. The seed of most of the other kinds, whether the gardens or fields, do stay lasks and fluxes of all sorts, the loathing of the stomach through choler, and is helpful for those that spit blood. The roots boiled in vinegar helpeth the itch, scabs, and breaking out of the skin, if it be bathed therewith. The distilled water of the herb and roots have the same virtue, and cleanseth the skin from freckles, morphew, and all other spots and discolourings therein.”
It’s imperative not to lose your nerve when working with animals. I
don’t take our animals to the vets (accidents and neutering aside)
not because I feel confident in treating them, but because there is
no other choice. Vets, just like doctors, are trained by corrupt
institutions into a system that does more harm than good – yes, I
know your vet is a wonderful, caring individual, especially when it
comes to his/her bank account. The vast majority are not caring
enough to question the dogma of injecting our animals with harmful
substances for questionable diseases. (See:
They are incapable of treating the injuries and ongoing disease
they have inflicted until they recognize that vaccinations cause many
of the problems. Animals are the most excellent teachers of the
healing arts, Sophia’s emissaries, no less.
I hadn’t even considered giving Freya yellow dock, but dogs don’t lie, so I dug out the tincture and gave her a few drops immediately. I also began taking it myself, so I could get the feel of it from the inside as I began observation and research.
Yellow dock (Rumex crispus): identfication and use
Yellow dock is named after its root, which is yellow and is the part of the plant with the most therapeutic benefit. It is said that the leaves can be eaten, and I’ll put a few young ones in our wild juice now and then for a hint of bitter-sour if there aren’t any dandelion or milk thistle leaves around, but not that often as the oxalates in the leaves interfere with mineral absorption in large amounts and it’s just not worth the bother. It’s the root that I’m interested in.
Docks and sorrels are classified as Rumex and are part of the buckwheat, Polygonaceae family, commonly referred to as the knotweed family. They are native to Europe, but have naturalised in most temperate parts of the world. There are several kinds of dock plant, but the one of greatest therapeutic benefit is yellow dock, also known as curly dock. It goes by the botanical name of Rumex crispus due to the wavy edges of its long pointed leaves. It is easily confused with Rumex obtusifolius, aka broad leaved dock or butter dock. The plants have different habitat preferences; yellow dock likes verges, borders and edges and broad leaved dock likes to be the middle of things and its leaves are distinctively tougher and more bitter. I don’t know how the two plants compare biochemically, but these differences tell me that one cannot be substituted for the other.
Traditionally, yellow dock root is harvested in late summer/autumn after the seeds turn red. This allows for the plant to achieve maturity and for the seeds to propagate. It is generally considered to be a perennial plant, in that it will usually live for more than two years, if conditions allow. Obviously, when you dig up a plant for its roots, that’s it for that plant, so letting it seed first ensures that there will be future plants. I don’t think there is likely to be any shortage of yellow dock anytime soon, although the population density does vary from year to year. This year is a big yellow dock year – they are everywhere. I harvested in the autumn first, but I’ve just dug up some more in late spring, by the waning moon so that its energy has gone into the roots.
When it comes to deep learning relationships with plant teachers, I prefer getting to know them where they grow and then working with tinctures and sun oils. I use infusions and salves for tonics, refreshment and minor ailments, rather than learning. Time of harvesting does make a difference to the effectiveness of the medicine, particularly with regard to the season, the time of day and the relationship between the planets and the moon. I don’t reduce the plant material to ash for reincorporation in tinctures, because I don’t have the equipment and I see this process as depicting what goes on in the cauldron of your own hermetic vessel. The conjunction of spagyrics, plant alchemy, is the recombination of the essence or spirit of the plant, with your DNA, which transpires in your belly.
Yellow Dock, Anthraquinones, Hydrogen Peroxide and Detoxification
Before using it, I had the general view that Yellow dock root was for the liver, gall bladder and digestive system. It’s such a strong plant that I’d naturally thought that its medicine is best kept for severe issues, but it is actually very mild and safe. Some sites say that it shouldn’t be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women, because of its anthraquinones, but senna has a higher anthraquinone content and is considered safe for occasional use during pregnancy. Much is made of yellow dock’s mild laxative effect, but you’d probably have to take a lot more than I did for that to be even noticeable.
We started with a half-dropper twice a day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon when the bladder and kidney meridians become active (3-7pm). It has a bitter taste, typical of plants that support the gall bladder and liver, that was more unpleasant to us human guinea pigs than it was to Freya. After her first dose, she relaxed into a trance-like state. She is very sensitive and this is her usual response to something that works for her, as her brain and body process the new information. Over the next few days her ravenous appetite diminished slightly, along with her aggression. Her natural demeanor is sweet and playful, but the bouts of candidiasis, UTIs and digestive issues make her irritable at times. Then I noticed something odd.
After taking the yellow dock root tincture for a couple of weeks, sitting down one evening I caught an unmistakable whiff of hydrogen peroxide. I could not work out where it was coming from, I couldn’t even tell whether it was internal or external to my own body! It turns out that yellow dock contains anthraquinones, which are used in the industrial production of hydrogen peroxide and it’s quite likely that they are also involved in making hydrogen peroxide in the body. Why would the body make its own hydrogen peroxide?
“[P]eroxides are ubiquitous in living systems (again see the Halliwell paper). In higher life forms H2O2 is produced in vivo by monoamine oxidase, xanthine oxidases, various dismutases, and other enzymes, under homeostatic control. There’s substantial evidence that hydrogen peroxide is a widely used signaling molecule (see references 21 to 26 in the Halliwell paper) and recent work has shown a role for hydrogen peroxide in reparative neovascularization. Recruitment of immune cells to wounds likewise appears to require hydrogen peroxide.
Far from being toxic, hydrogen peroxide is an important biomolecule, essential to ordinary metabolic processes. There is zero evidence that hydrogen peroxide does anything harmful in living tissues, at the concentrations normally found in vivo.”
writer goes on to give his theory as to why scientific dogma
sustains, regardless of the evidence:
“Why do myths like this take hold in science? Why do otherwise intelligent scientists cling to them and perpetuate them, regurgitating them in textbooks and handing them down to new generations of students?
I think the answer is, because it makes a good story, and as human beings we value a good story more than we value checking out the story to see if it’s true (providing it’s a suitably satisfying story).
Before there was science, stories were all the human race had as a way of trying to understand the universe. If someone told a good enough story, and the story provided a satisfying-enough explanation of something, the story endured. Some of humankind’s most cherished stories have survived for thousands of years. They survive, in many cases, even if they’re not verifiably true.
With science, the theory is the unit of storytelling. If a theory seems to fit the facts, it’s accepted. If, on closer inspection, a story is found not to fit the facts, it will still be accepted by many people, if it’s a satisfying enough story.”
I’m still left
‘story-less’ regarding the
function of hydrogen
peroxide in the body. Some
researchers conclude that it might be involved in the regulation of
renal function and as an antibacterial agent in the urine. Others
theorize that when the immune system is activated in response
to bacteria, large amounts of hydrogen peroxide are produced by
certain cells to fight the infection and that there is another
molecule, peroxiredoxin, that converts hydrogen peroxide back to
water if the levels get to high. In plants, hydrogen peroxide is
thought to play a key role in stress perception, signaling, and
acclimatization to metal toxicity.
Myopic scientists hang onto Darwin’s little tale like drowning
sailors in a sea of alphabet soup. Compared to their turgid
descriptions of interactions between bit-part players with long
names, Darwin’s story is a masterpiece. At least his characters
were alive. Internet research on any science related topic will take
you into an endless maze of dead-ends and side-tracks, paved with
fools gold. The facts presented are true enough within their limited
context, but they are only a facsimile of real life. You can put them
together in any way you want and find support for any theory you can
conceive, but that won’t make your story true. Interactions and
relationships that have been observed so meticulously in a
laboratory, by scientists pretending to have no effect on the outcome
of their experiments and totally ignorant of any effect their
experiments might have on themselves, do not describe what happens in
a living creature, with its unique ecology, experience and even
desires. So why bother with internet research? I think of it as
looking for the golden thread in the labyrinth. I scan the material
quickly, with open-minded scepticism, looking for what tweaks my
Hydrogen peroxide, the signaling molecule, had waved right up my nose. But what was the message? The very next day a friend from England arrived for a visit. She took the train from the airport to our local station and it was a bit late. She explained that they’d got held up in Ourense, where she looked at an interesting mural, until a man came out of the station, put on a red hat, blew his whistle and waved a little red flag to signal the all clear for the train to move forward. She found that action immensely charming. I saw it as the message for Freight-Train-Freya, that we were on track yellow dock and had the all clear to continue working with it on what was fundamentally a clearing the way process.
Amongst herbalists, yellow dock is universally highly regarded and there are many sites that describe the kind of conditions it helps with. One of my favourite hard copy references is: The Energetics of Western Herbs, by Peter Holms. Here is an extract from his Notes on yellow dock:
“Yellow dock is one of the many members of the knotweed family found worldwide. Like them, the root of the various species of the yellow or narrow-leaf dock is used as an important resolvent detoxificant remedy. Because Yellow Dock chooses a variety of pathways for accomplishing the job of detoxification, it ensures good results across a brad spectrum of toxicosis conditions. Toxin elimination is comprehensively favoured through the liver, the kidneys and bladder, and the colon.
Primarily, however, Yellow dock root is a bitter digestive stimulant (and cholagogue) that operates by reducing Qi stagnation of the liver, gall bladder and intestines. Because of its dry, cold nature, the root is best used in individuals presenting liver congestion that tend to generate damp heat, typically seen with symptoms such as bilious headache, jaundice, fatty indigestion, chronic constipation and a tendency to food allergies. Its moderate yet certain laxative action is signalled by the anthraquinone glycosides. For the same reason the remedy relieves the symptoms of toxic heat, intestines damp heat and gastric ulcer, where Yellow dock’s anti-inflammatory and astringent actions engage.
Yellow dock at the same time is a kidney stimulant that reduces acidosis and bladder deposits, and promotes urination – where the anthraquinones are active. Its detoxicant and depurant diuretic action here reinforces the detoxicant digestive effect. The net result: an effective remedy for congestive disorders of the skin and lymph. Yellow dock releases wind damp and heat in the skin and therefore addresses a wide range of eczemas presenting itching, redness and vesicular suppuration. Swollen lymph glands likewise benefit from the remedy’s ultimate lymphatic decongestant action.
In the West Yellow dock has a particular reputation for treating anemia. It is also a fact that the root is high in minerals, including iron. However, we must guard against making the statement that Yellow dock literally “nourishes the blood” in the traditional sense of tonifying metabolic functions. Nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is that Yellow dock is clearly a draining, detoxicant remedy for prime use in congestive, hot and damp heat conditions – the exact opposite of what’s required when treating blood deficiency, which is essentially a weak condition.”
has this to say on the mineral content of Yellow dock:
“Yellow dock is a mineral-rich herb; it soaks up trace minerals from the soil and transposes them into an organic form that can easily be absorbed and herbalists of old used to sprinkle iron filings on the soil on which they grew Yellow Dock to treat anaemia and blood deficiency (my comment – the amounts of iron or other minerals in Yellow Dock are likely to be very modest in the doses we typically use, however its broader tonic effects on the liver and gut in turn enable a better absorption of nutrients from the diet and it may be this that has seen it be able to help in cases of anaemia and depletion)”
From an alchemical perspective, there is a golden thread to follow where ever inorganic minerals, especially metals, are involved in biological processes. For a number of years, I’ve been contemplating the notion that microbes and minerals are key to the detoxification/purification actions needed to render the internal terrain hostile to parasites of all types and dimensions. It’s one of the reasons why we wild juice every day. A compromised and stressed immune system, that is constantly trying to attack heavy metals, pathogens and foreign biological material in the bloodstream, which it was never designed to deal with, needs help. My insight on the action of iron in Yellow dock is that it’s not a nutrient, but it works with hydrogen peroxide as a kind of Fenton reaction in the body to clean out wastes. The Fenton reaction is used to clean industrial waste water, but is said to be damaging in living systems. That is just another story based on misunderstanding of the role of hydrogen peroxide and has never been observed in a living creature.
Badger Medicine –
the Keeper of Stories
To wrap up this post, I turned to another of my favourite reference books: The Earthwise Herbal, by Matthew Wood and this is what I found:
“The leaf of yellow dock is sour, like the leaves of its cousins sheep sorrel and garden sorrel. It is also somewhat astringent. In the root of the dock these tastes and properties are modified by the addition of bitters. Thus the plant is cooling (sour), binding or drying (astringent), cleansing, laxative and alterative (bitter). In terms of the doctrine of signatures, yellow dock is a yellow, man shaped root that helps downward movement in the digestive tract. This is a picture of a “badger medicine” in American Indian practice. My friend Kim Dudley, herbalist in Canberra, Australia, recognized the experience and commented from his experience, “Yellow dock is for excess badger energy.” That would be too much fire in the stomach and digestive tract, too much appetite and too much emotional energy.”
I could see Badger characteristics of aggression, persistence, quick to anger, a liking for solitude and willingness to fight for what you want in Freya, and also in myself. Badger is also said to be the keeper of the medicine roots and in some Native American myths is keeper of the stories.
In order to heal and regenerate, you need a story that is conducive to those aims. The mainstream narrative, regarding the inevitability of disease and degeneration that your body cannot repair, is a slow-acting poison on your unconscious mind, causing you to mistake signs of healing for symptoms of disease, so that you become an unwitting accomplice to your own demise. Yellow dock badger medicine goes right to the root of disease, freeing your mind from the false stories that inhibit your innate healing abilities as it detoxifies your body.
Freya has begun a new chapter in her story; for a long time she was ‘our problem child’ but now she is my teacher and some of her problems are beginning to ease (she has stopped digging in the garden too). I’ve also started a new chapter. I stopped doing therapy/healing work nearly five years ago, as there were other things I wanted to learn. Recently, I’ve been yearning to feel part of the community here, but it seemed like an impossible challenge as we don’t have cows or kids and barely speak the language. (The local dialects even vary from town to town.) Last week, I told Dean that I was thinking about returning to healing work, not working in a therapy rooms in town, but in a more organic way, somehow. The very next day I had three ‘clients’ here, one of whom is going to help me improve my Spanish, in return for me teaching her about the local healing plants.
Badger medicine digs deep and works fast!
At the beginning of the next shift, Zuby inexplicably made a bid for freedom and flew over the fence of the chicken pen. Izzy caught him immediately. Luckily, we got him back in and he lost only his tail feathers – and a nasty gash on his back. Not even, wounded pride. He actually seems quite proud of himself!
I was wondering how long to keep giving Freya the yellow dock root tincture and I took this as a sign to stop – Zuby, signalling a new ‘tale’ is on the way. Sure enough, a few weeks later and Freya appears, almost completely healed. See Healing the Waters for more info.
Far from being some esoteric idea, the chakra system is the gearbox that enables Supernatural energy, which you could just as easily call electromagnetic energy (of the natural kind) to be transmitted to your own mind/body system. From there, you transduce and transmit this energy to all life on earth, the earth itself and to the greater cosmos. The effects of Supernatural energy are observable and various methods of working with it are provable. If you have problems related to health, relationships, work or money (that just about covers everything, doesn’t it?) one or more of your chakras will be out of whack. You know what happens if you put the car in the wrong gear, it judders or leaps and you get that grinding sound and lose power to the wheels? If your life is going nowhere fast and you keep making the same mistakes again and again, that’s a symptom of grinding gears on your chakras, which could create a killer chakra.
The good news is that, if you correct chakra issues, and keep them humming along as they were designed to, other problems become easily resolvable, some even disappear completely. You will have more energy available to do other things and your life moves up a gear. Does that sound incredible? Well, all you have to do is prove it for yourself and you don’t need any special skills, it won’t cost you anything, all you need is a friend. I’ve seen this work with hundreds of other people over the past 10 years and a few weeks ago I had the opportunity to experience it for myself, so now I am 100% confident in the procedure.
The Manipura is otherwise known as the Solar Plexus Chakra or the Third Chakra, third as in the third primary chakra from the First or Root Chakra (Muladhara) moving upwards. In the Hindu tradition it is known as the City of Jewels and I think of it as the Master Dial. It is also sometimes referred to as the Navel chakra and many writers describe it as being located behind the navel, which is somewhat confusing. In my working with chakras I’ve found that, in the vast majority of cases, the manipura is located about four fingers above the navel.
If you make the manipura mudra to balance this chakra, by clasping your hands together and intertwining your fingers over your abdomen in the place where they naturally fall, then extending the middle fingers outwards to make a point, the point would be directly over the manipura. To do this mudra correctly, women should have their left thumb over the right and it’s reversed for men. It only works on the chakra if you chant ‘raam’ loud enough for it to vibrate in the area beneath your hands. I’ve not found this method to be as effective as the Chakra Correction Method I describe below, but if you are on your own and feel you have a manipura disturbance, it will help. Pennyroyal herbal oil and pennyroyal tea also support the manipura.
In this post I’m focusing on the Solar Plexus and Root chakras and the relationship between them. That is not to discount the significance of the Sacral or Second chakra (Svadhisthana), but that is a whole subject in itself. The function of the Sacral Chakra can be summarised as the seat of the pleasure circuits. Energy comes into the Sacral Chakra from the Root Chakra and from other terrestrial life forms and goes out from the Sacral Chakra to other creatures and to the earth itself – the emotional body of the earth, Her living waters, are interactive with our Sacral Chakras. Adverse weather is a direct consequence of lack of natural human pleasure. A subject for another day…..
The chakras can be imagined as funnel-shaped vortices that extend out of the body front and back. The centre point of each funnel, or trumpet, where it is narrowest, interact with a specific bundle of nerves, or plexus. Each nerve plexus correlates to a specific spinal region, the corresponding glands in the endocrine system and is involved in the communication and management system of certain organs and senses.
The solar plexus chakra corresponds to the lumbar region of the spine and pain in this region correlates with a dysfunctional manipura. Correcting the spin of the chakra will alleviate the pain in most cases and, crucially, allow you to receive the insight as to what you need to change in your life to prevent the pain from returning. I have witnessed a visibly protruding lumbar disc assimilate into the correct position, so that all pain was dissolved and mobility restored, over a period of 90 minutes when the function of the solar plexus chakra was restored.
The nerves corresponding to the solar plexus chakra are mostly
involved in the management of the digestive system, providing the
communication between the organs and the brain, so that digestive
juices and insulin are regulated, for example. The corresponding
gland of the endocrine system is the pancreas. All pancreatic and
digestive problems correlate to manipura dysfunction and correcting
the manipura is necessary for sustained recovery – whether you
believe it or not.
Psychologically, the solar plexus chakra is associated with will power and self-esteem. When all is well with this chakra you have a ‘can do’ attitude and confidence in your ability to deal with whatever comes up in your life, initiate action and work with intention and your insight or intuition is strong. When it’s not functioning correctly, you can feel overwhelmed or irritated, misunderstood and unable to get, or even define what you want in life. A classic symptom of third chakra dysfunction is loss of sense of humour. There is no escaping manipura malfunction now and then, as it is involved in all your interactions in the social domain. It functions as a ‘master dial’ on the other chakras, regulating the intensity you bring to your sense of self as the identity node of experience of your own life, and the centrepoint to which every thing else responds.
The manipura is traditionally represented as having ten petals, which are said to correspond to the following ‘disturbances’: spiritual ignorance, thirst, jealousy, treachery, shame, fear, disgust, delusion, foolishness and sadness. This was determined many generations ago in a very different culture to ours, so some of the disturbances might be slightly different for us today, yet the image of the chakra, its physical structure and its function still apply. The ten petals correspond to the main nerves that link the digestive organs and the brain and indicate the ten most prevalent issues that plague the social domain. Any individual who wants to access the energy needed to use their latent powers, must clear the disturbances that arise in the solar plexus chakra. This is humbling, grinding, crunch work, sometimes it seems as if it goes on forever, the same issues arising again and again, but you can be as certain as you can of anything that this is what is crying out to be corrected in your life, so that you can move on. The Chakra Correction Procedure helps speed up the process.
The downward pointing triangle in the circle of the ten petals indicates that the disturbances have emerged from emotions generated by unconscious learned behaviour from childhood, as well as the ongoing effects of our own cultural amnesia. We now know that these patterns that have been deliberately inculcated over generations to prevent self-actualization and autonomy, to keep us weak, confused and easily controlled. However, the experiential history of each race is written in the ten petals of the manipura and the future is created through how each individual corrects the issues that are shown up.
Most of the world is now in a state of deliberately contrived thirst. In the west, we drink dead clean water that flushes the system, but does not hydrate the cells. Dr. Batmanghelidj observed in his book, Your Body’s Many Cries for Water, that most sickness is caused by dehydration and that we actually lose our perception of thirst as we get older because the body has resorted to chronic drought management procedures and no longer asks for something it will never get. Maintaining people in a state of perpetual thirst is a proven method for keeping us stuck in second gear! Anytime you find yourself saying: why does this always happen to me? It is a the solar plexus chakra crying out for correction. (As an aside, when we lived in London we used to filter our water and structure it with lasers, which was expensive and slow. We now have a much easier and cheaper method, that you can find out about here.)
The manipura is where the individual meets the collective. The
solar plexus chakra continuously broadcasts your emotional state and
entrains or reacts to others that are broadcasting on similar or more
intense frequencies. Telepathy and projection occurs via the chakras
through infrasound, ultrasound, sonoluminesense and biophotons, with
each chakra attuning to and amplifying signals within a specific
frequency range, which are then interpreted by the brain. So,
fear of authority spreads when some one experiences it and
unconsciously broadcasts it via the solar plexus chakra and it is
received by everyone in the vicinity who holds a similar
disturbance. The big question is, what is the effect of some one
The Killer Chakra
Towards the end of 2018, I started to feel unwell. I’m usually robustly healthy and optimistic, so when I started to experience an ongoing, intense pain in my kidney, along with debilitating backache and a sense of despondency, it was unusual. I started wearing the pain relief amulet and bangle continuously and although it was reducing the pain by about 80%, I didn’t feel as though I was healing. My gums were bleeding at the slightest touch and my teeth had become super-sensitive – I began to ask myself some questions. At the time, coming into winter, I was considering some changes in our lives. We had decided to stop running retreats and needed to find another source of income and, even though we had several great opportunities in the pipeline, I knew I’d hit an inherited fear and scarcity programme. But I couldn’t seem to shift it.
The first thing to note is that, in
that state of mind, it’s really easy to miss the obvious; I’ve
corrected the chakras of hundreds of people and witnessed many
amazing results, but it took four weeks before I thought, “Hmmm, I
wonder if it might be a good idea to check my chakras.” So, Dean
did it for me there and then and the result was instantaneous. I
felt the energy move up my back, the pain in my back and kidney went
immediately and when I went to brush my teeth (just to really, see if
it worked) my gums didn’t bleed and my teeth weren’t sensitive at
all. As I said, I’ve seen this kind of ‘miraculous healing’ in
many other people and in several cases the results have been
validated by medical tests, but this was the first time I experienced
it for myself.
Before describing what Dean did, I
want to stress that this is a really simple, painless and
self-evident procedure that anyone can do on anyone else. In fact,
it is so simple that you might be tempted to discount its value; I
can’t say that it works for every condition or individual, or even
that it’s the best or only solution, but I can say with 100%
confidence that most people will experience immediate significant
positive changes in their physical or psychological health, that they
can then build upon. It won’t work so well if you are drugged up
to the eyeballs and, although you don’t need to believe in anything
for it to work, you can will it not to work.
In this instance, my root chakra was
spinning in the wrong direction and my solar plexus chakra was
closed. I had become so involved in my disturbances that my manipura
had shutdown, which is its first response to self-directed harsh
criticism, so as to limit the effects of entrainment to similar
negativity from others. I’ve never experienced my muladhara
spinning in the wrong direction before, but I have seen it in others.
Last summer we had a friend show up with a broken coccyx – the
coccyx is the part of the spine that is said to correlate to the root
chakra. He had just been signed off from work for six months because
of it and was in a lot of pain. He showed us the x-rays. I did the
chakra correction procedure that I’ve described below with him and
his spine healed instantly. Obviously, I could not verify this with
x-rays, but he jumped off the couch, declared that his pain was
completely gone and he was able to move around, work and get on with
life. Unfortunately, although the physical issues were resolved, the
emotional and psychological issues were not. At the time of the
correction, this individual’s solar plexus chakra was also closed
and although we opened it in the session, he did not follow through
with any of his intentions. The energy of the inner sun must be
aimed outwards into the social domain, or else the aroused kundalini
(who provides the energy boost for accelerated healing) will sink
into her base, animal instincts. We all witnessed how he began to
destroy himself and the effect this had on everything around him and
I will write more on this in another post.
I’ve spent several months contemplating this incident and I’m as certain as I can be that the experience I had with the kidney and back pain was my body teaching me what I wanted to learn. I was shown how I was using the destructive power of the earth to kill myself! That might sound overly dramatic, but the directive power of the solar plexus chakra, the inner sun, will ultimately regenerate or destroy you – your choice! I’m committed to learning the processes of alchemical regeneration, which is leading me to explore kundalini and the ouroboros and the path is crystal clear: before you can regenerate, you have to stop killing yourself! To deny or ignore what calls for your attention WITHIN YOURSELF is to work against yourself and against nature and the cries from your own body will get increasingly stronger until addressed or you die. The manipura is the ‘master dial’ because this is where the mental ability to address emotional issues arises, which regulates the ‘throttle level’on the other chakras and your access to life-force energy, or kundalini. The solar plexus chakra is not showing you problems or limitations; it’s showing you exactly where to focus your self-determination in order to shift up a gear and fulfill your destiny. When the manipura is undisturbed, you have more energy available for other things. Not only is your full individuated life force flowing, but the warmth of your inner sun will arouse the sleeping kundalini, bringing Shakti power online.
The root chakra, or muladhara, is
attuned to earth frequencies. The four petals signify the cardinal
directions or up down, forwards and backwards. When the root chakra
is open and spinning in the correct direction you feel safe,
confident and supported by the earth, because you are! It is the
foundation from which our conceptual and physiological self arises.
The root chakra closes, as a reflex action, to protect you from
destructive energies as a child and before you develop the mental
ability to differentiate experience. We live in a society that
generates fear to make sure we never feel safe, especially as
children and many people never get to feel natural, regenerative
earth frequencies for so many reasons. When spinning in the correct
direction, the root chakra generates the power of FOR-ness. For-ce,
derived from latin roughly translates as ‘power to it’.
For anyone who is awake and willing,
who wants to participate in eliminating the parasites that plague us
and resolving the problems of the world, you begin by correcting the
chakras. This isn’t a substitute for external action, but the locus
point of all action. The extent to which abhorrent, deviant and
overtly satanic behaviour is being portrayed in the mainstream, shows
that the enemies of life have reached a new level of confidence in
their occult methodologies – they don’t need to hide what they’re
doing anymore. Not that the masses have any awareness of how this
affects them, or that they are unconsciously killing themselves, as
well as everything around them – no one can separate themselves
from reality. The root chakra is the killer chakra, when it is
spinning in the wrong direction, the force of destruction. Lack of
self-love, failure to act with self-determination and address the
disturbances that arise in the manipura all lead to the activation of
the killer chakra.
That’s the bad news. The good news is that our Aeonic Mother, in Her perfect wisdom, provides multiple solutions to every problem we face. I’ve used this Chakra Correction Method hundreds of times with consistent results. It is a physiological process that creates real and self-evident changes in your mind-body system. I offer it with a caution in that, while it dissolves the confusion that prevents you from seeing what you need to do in your life and releases the energy that is stuck in grinding gears, it is not a substitute for action and you still need to do your own work.
Chakra Correction Method
1. Train your pendulum to show you a
correct ‘yes’ and ‘no’ until you have confidence in the
2. Have the subject lay on their back
in a comfortable position, knees may be raised if necessary.
3. Locate their root chakra with the
palm of your dominant hand, by holding your hand, palm facing
downwards, a handswidth or so over the crotch area, where the chakra
is located. You will feel a thickness in the air, or heat, or
tingling in your hand when you have the correct spot.
4. Remove your hand and, holding the end of the chain of your pendulum drop it so that the point lands a handswidth above the physical body of the subject in the area where you located the chakra.
YOU DO NOT PHYSICALLY TOUCH THE SUBJECT AT ANY POINT IN THIS PROCEDURE
5. If the chakra is working
correctly, after a few moments, it will start to rotate in a counter
clockwise direction (from the perspective of the subject, as if they
were looking down on themselves) for a woman and clockwise for a man.
6. If the chakra is closed, the pendulum will hang still, as if sucked down to the chakra. If this happens, you open the chakra by locating it again with the palm of your dominant hand (you are using your healing palm chakra for this) and begin rotating your hand as if spinning a disc, in the correct direction – ie clockwise for a man and counterclockwise for a woman. After a few seconds, stop spinning and check with your pendulum to see if it moves in circles in the correct direction. If not, do the process again.
7. Repeat the process for each chakra
moving upwards, remembering that the spin alternates.
8. If a chakra is spinning in the
wrong direction, you correct it in the same manner; locate it with
your palm and rotate your hand in the correct direction. Always,
remember to check with the pendulum afterwards.
Chakra Spin Directions
The spin directions I describe here may not correspond to other sources, but these are what I’ve verified as correct over several hundred sessions.
The procedure is self-evident because you use a pendulum to see the spin of the chakras – it is a biofeedback device. You can’t see the chakras themselves, but you can see how they cause a pendulum to spin in one direction or another, or not at all if that chakra is closed. The procedure is for six of the primary chakras only – I’ve never encountered the need to work on the Crown Chakra, also known as the seventh chakra or the Sahasrara, the Thousand Fold Chakra.
The key points to understand about the workings of the chakras are:
– each chakra spins either clockwise or counterclockwise when it is open and working correctly
– when a chakra is closed, it does not
– the chakras alternate spin direction
from the root chakra up
– the chakras of men and women spin in
the opposite directions

“A future event causes a photon to decide its past.” Professor Andrew Truscott
In my previous post, Magnetic Intent, I described the experience of being anchored into the iron jet stream of the earth via the concentration of magnetite in the ethmoid bone. The term “anchored” came from one of the participants in the recent Gaian Alchemy Retreat and it describes perfectly how it feels to work with intent. The function of double helix vortex energy in the heart was also revealed in that session, although its taken me a while to unpack it. This is the resonant energy source for co-creation or power sharing with the Wisdom Goddess.
One of the exercises on the retreat was a mini-group project, to discover the plant that VV had designated to be our ‘teacher’ and to learn something about it through the perception of inner space and the true imagination. The various steps of the process involved forming the intention to find the plant, locating it, agreeing with the rest of the group that it was ‘the plant’ and then discovering what it had to share.
The prelude to the ‘plant project’ was an individual exercise on working with intent. In the intention exercise, three participants reported strong heart surges and expansion, a lurching feeling that can almost knock you off-balance. Intent IS co-creation with our Divine Mother and you first feel it when the power surge of Her great wave moves through you, after that you track to it by following your nose. It can also be described as a spiritual awakening, enlightenment, epiphany or even a shamanic initiation. I’m calling it the Power SWitch and the enemies of life want it switched off.
Due to the lucidity of the supreme living intelligence of the planet and the extreme conditions of the current times, what was previously a rare experience, requiring years of dedication, is now almost commonplace. The planetary life-force is getting a huge boost from multiple sources and gate-crashing human consciousness, with only the slightest sniff of an invitation. She wants to play and She loves it when we learn through light-hearted, playful experimentation. Co-creation is a superlative problem-solving tool, but how does it work?
Dancing with Dionysus
The day after the intention exercise, we walked out of the woods and into the big field and right there, smack in front of us, was this beauty:
We have never seen a plant like that before here and it wasn’t there the day before. We didn’t know what it was, but we knew it was our ‘teacher plant’ and that we were all going to play this game.
None of us recognized the plant and we each spent time with it using our ordinary senses, our imagination and the felt-sense of inner space. At the end of the week we compared notes. We identified it as a type of fennel, by tasting the flowers and as a hermaphrodite, with an attractive character (because of the many different types of insects on it by looking at it. By using our imaginations to tune into innerspace and we sensed it to be balancing plant, that acted like a beacon to call in pleasure and harmony. We also determined that it worked on the pancreas and helped with diabetes and digestive issues. The plant is Ferula communis, Giant Fennel, which is quite distinct from culinary fennel, although also a member of the Apiaceae or Umbelliferae family and it certainly had a lot to share.
Ferula- Giant fennel. The classical Latin name. The word also means the rod used to chastise schoolboys and slaves for minor offences. The giant fennel has tall sticklike stems with a slow-burning pith which enabled Prometheus to bring fire to mankind from heaven.
Stearn, W.T. (1996). Dictionary of Plant Names for Gardeners. Cassell. p.140
communis- common; general; growing in company.
Stearn, W.T. (1996). Dictionary of Plant Names for Gardeners. Cassell. p.101
In ancient Greece, the giant fennel was known as narthex. It is described in mythology as the plant Prometheus used to bring fire secretly from Hephaistos’ forge to humans because, when set on fire, its dry stem pith will smoulder for a long time. The raving Maenads and the other attendants of Dionysos (Bacchus to the Romans), the god of wine and vine, ecstatic trance, pleasure and fertility, are often depicted as carrying a festive staff, called a thrysos, made of narthex and decorated with ivy with a pine cone on the top. Twice-born Dionysos, is a potent reminder of the notion of regeneration and transmutation in your current life:
“People who believe they will die first and then rise up are mistaken. If they do not first receive resurrection while they are alive, once they have died they will receive nothing”
Gospel of Philip 73:1-5.
Narthex also describes an annex to a church, a sort of side-room or porch, used in medieval times for penitents or catechumens, who were required to listen to the service in preparation for baptism. The early catholic church had to copy some the initiation rites of the pagan mysteries, in order to simulate divine origins for its agenda. It seems quite possible that the area of the church allocated to heathens was named after the plant used as the sceptre and symbol of their raucous revels.
In Morocco it is known as fessoukh and has been associated with magic and sorcery. Fessoukh means that “which undoes spells (magically)”. It is frequently used in ritual or magic fumigation and in sorcery and counter-sorcery. Fumigation is believed to ward off the “evil spirits”. The roots are also used, especially in a preparation used for hair care.

Ferula communis L., subsp. communis, namely giant fennel, has extensively been used in traditional medicine for a wide range of ailments. Fresh plant materials, crude extracts and isolated components of F. communis showed a wide spectrum of in vitro and in vivo pharmacological properties including antidiabetic, antimicrobial, antiproliferative, and cytotoxic activities.
Review of the traditional uses, phytochemistry, pharmacology and toxicology of giant fennel (Ferula communis L. subsp. communis)
The exercise was a great success in that the group was able to identify out some specific details regarding the specific properties of the giant fennel. However, when you look at what the Wisdom Goddess was showing us, through Her selection of this particular plant out of all the possibilities available to Her, it is truly mind-blowing. How did our PAM know that we were hanging out with Dionysus? Did She send him to us? Did we call him in? Or were we dancing to a song not yet sung?
Or was this co-creation? Co-creation happens outside of linear time, as a memory can come from the past or the future to shape the present. The evidence of this was a 7ft high plant growing overnight – smack bang in the middle of our usual path. It was impossible not to notice it, however, what if our giant fennel was already growing when Sophia planted the plant project seed-intention in my mind? This is how I began to recognize co-creation at play, by questioning the directional flow of time between intention and observable result. Was it even my intention? Where did the impulse to set that intention originate? And suddenly, the flood gates opened.
Heart Times Ahead
So, how is the heart involved in co-creation and what does it have to do with time?
Since living here, my entry points into time have been guided by my love affair with this land and my desire to discover the stories of the rocks, trees and rivers and the people who lived here. I thought I was looking into the distant past, but I now have the strange feeling of being pulled from the future.
On the first day of this Tantra Mother shift, or Danu as She expresses Herself here, I woke up with a pounding heart and three clear thoughts in my mind:
Adolf Hitler’s last recorded words to Heinz Linge, his personal aide as he conceded the defeat of Germany were: “To break up and scatter to the West.” And when Linge asked, “For whom should we fight now?” Hitler replied, “For the coming man.”
Rudolf Steiner’s concept of the ‘Etherization of the Blood’.
The Gnostic 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, along with those who belong to your legion.
For at the consummation of your work, the entire defect of Archontic illusion exposed in the light of truth will be abolished, and that illusion will be as if it never had been.” — On the Origin of the World, 103.15-30
My dream world has also changed significantly over the past year: gone are the elaborate dreamscapes and adventures of the past. I don’t remember the details of dreams as much as I used to, but the guidance I receive is much clearer, pristine and unadorned and always pertinent to my intention. I regard intel received through my body and senses as primary and thoughts as secondary, so these thoughts had to be telling me something about the heart. Especially as matters of the heart had come up in so many ways on our retreat.
Conventional medical science would have you believe that somehow, through some unexplained magical means, that this fist-sized organ is a meat-pump that uses pressure to pump your blood, 60-70 times a minute through 60,000 miles of blood vessels. If the heart was strong enough to squeeze large red blood cells through tiny capillaries, your blood pressure would be so high that you would explode! Blood moves through the blood vessels, in a manner similar to water moving through xylem tubes in trees. The capillaries are hydrophilic tubes that attract the negatively charged water in the blood, changing it into a gel-like honey-comb lattice structure on containing the rest of the positively charged blood and water within an inner tube. The action of repelling and attraction between the differently charged fluids creates flow, which is continually fueled by infrared radiation from the sun, the electromagnetic field of the earth and all other living creatures.
The unique shape of the heart causes the blood to form into two vortices. Blood is sucked into the heart via the right atrium where it’s forced into a clockwise spiral and then vortexes around itself, finally emerging from the left ventricle in the opposite, counter-clockwise direction. Suction and expulsion are the generative forces of the universe, faithfully demonstrated in the heart. These vortices create the electromagnetic energy field that can be measured around the heart and up to several metres away.
The electrical output of the human heart is said to be 60 times greater than that of the brain and the magnetic output 600 times greater. However, an “electromagnetic field” is just another name for the mysterious ether referred to be Steiner and others; it is simply the electrical resonance of all living things, from ants to Aeons and everything in between. The terms electromagnetic, electrical and magnetic are a reflection of direction, scale and intensity and only appear different due to the specific calibration of our senses and the illusion of difference created by various measuring instruments. This shape causes ‘the etherization of the blood,’ which means that it is spiraled into a vortex that generates coherent energy – the same double helix vortex that generates DNA and galaxies and even the heart itself. Living and moving sacred geometry endlessly recreating itself.
By current estimation there are around 30 trillion cells in the human body and every cell acts as a generator, due to the natural action of charged water within the blood. This is potentially the ultimate, decentralized perpetual motion machine within the body. But what about all that energy generated by the heart itself? Thus far, after decades of research, the finest scientific minds have been able to confirm what every mother, or any other human animal who has ever bonded with another sentient creature knows from experience energy, that the heart has some precognitive ability and that it perceives intuitive and emotional information before the brain. In fact, there are many different types of communication processes in the body, but for so long as the majority of scientists remain cocooned in self-serving ignorance, they are doing this:
The heart does not only enable us to connect psychically with each other and other animals, but also with the Great Beast Herself, our Planetary Animal Mother (PAM). If you love the earth and have bonded with Her through a ritual act of intent, you can interact telepathically with Her just as you can any other animal. In the dreaming mind of the Aeon Sophia, the most significant event of Her day has already happened: She has corrected Her mistake and is now guiding Her magical children to live to the fullness of their potential, as if the Archons and their lackies had never existed.
[To emphasize this point: a bat appeared in mid-air in our living room, even though all the windows and doors were closed, just as I read this paragraph out to Dean and a friend who is visiting.]
However, there is more to Her dreaming power than telepathy. The Aeon Sophia lives outside of chronological time. Her experiences occur in ‘dreamtime’ and are arranged by emotional intensity, Her relationships and Her location in the cosmos. You can imagine this by reference to your own dreaming, which is very similar in terms of the experience of time, but much weaker in effect. Humans cannot cause anything to manifest in ordinary consciousness just through dreaming about it; but our dreaming can be a window into what is happening in Her mind and as spur to action. Denial of physical needs and pleasure has the effect of trapping you in linear time; as your cells scream for attention you become enmeshed in temporality and conversely, the more your physical needs and desires are met, the more you notice how your relationship with time changes – you move into ‘free-time’. It feels a lot like tripping.
The Aeon Sophia became lucid in Her dream when She was in the proper position and She had a human witness; up until that point She was setting things up in flashes of lucidity, fed by those who were able to hold Her in memory through the barren millenia of darkness. You are reading this now because you already have a share of the qualities that She needs for human participation in this totally novel event in the life of our galaxy, otherwise you wouldn’t have been born. When I realized this for myself, I experienced the strange sensation of being pulled from the future, physically through my heart, my love of the earth and my lust for life. I suddenly saw how many extraordinary experiences in my life were part of a trajectory that seemed almost pre-determined in leading up to this point. Guided is a better term – learning to follow Her guidance saves a few bruises here and there, especially on the head. It was a great relief to recognize that the Aeon Sophia is actively eliminating the pestilence that plagues our world and that I’m fully equipped and in the right place at the right time to play my part.
There are two streams of participation, destruction and regeneration, or the movement towards entropy and the movement towards syntropy, spiraling waves of energy moving away from the source and those moving towards a receiver. The human heart generates energy that resonates with and amplifies the entropic and syntropic waves. The dominant movement at the moment is towards destruction and the majority of humans on this planet are unconsciously accelerating the entropic wave and a few are consciously engaged in this drive. My location, the western most point of Europe in the magical land of Ophiussa, positions me to work more closely with the syntropic wave, described thus by Luigi Fantappiè:
“In the days just before Christmas 1941, as a consequence of conversations with two colleagues, a physicist and a biologist, I was suddenly projected in a new panorama, which radically changed the vision of science and of the Universe which I had inherited from my teachers, and which I had always considered the strong and certain ground on which to base my scientific investigations. Suddenly I saw the possibility of interpreting a wide range of solutions (the anticipated potentials) of the wave equation which can be considered the fundamental law of the Universe. These solutions had been always rejected as “impossible”, but suddenly they appeared “possible”, and they explained a new category of phenomena which I later named “syntropic”, totally different from the entropic ones, of the mechanical, physical and chemical laws, which obey only the principle of classical causation and the law of entropy. Syntropic phenomena, which are instead represented by those strange solutions of the “anticipated potentials”, should obey two opposite principles of finality (moved by a final cause placed in the future, and not by a cause which is placed in the past) and differentiation, and also non-causable in a laboratory. This last characteristic explains why this type of phenomena has never been reproduced in a laboratory, and its finalistic properties justified the refusal among scientists, who accepted without any doubt the assumption that finalism is a “metaphysical” principle, outside Science and Nature. This assumption obstructed the way to a calm investigation of the real existence of this second type of phenomena; an investigation which I accepted to carry out, even though I felt as if I were falling in a abyss, with incredible consequences and conclusions. It suddenly seemed as if the sky were falling apart, or at least the certainties on which mechanical science had based its assumptions. It appeared to me clear that these “syntropic”, finalistic phenomena which lead to differentiation and could not be reproduced in a laboratory, were real, and existed in nature, as I could recognize them in the living systems. The properties of this new law, opened consequences which were just incredible and which could deeply change the biological, medical, psychological, and social sciences”
Both drives are necessary and unavoidable and victory is inevitable. It’s all about how you want to play.
As a prelude to what is to come, human heart cells have double the DNA of other cells, but it’s purpose is a mystery. I’m relating this to The Radioactive Riddle of Hexagram 42 and the amplification from Thelete/Jupiter that is about to come into effect.

For a few years now, I’ve been holding to the intention of living the dream of this land and following through on the guidance I’ve received, as much as I can. Sometimes it feels like trying to apply mascara while riding a rodeo bull, but I’m learning a lot about how intent works. Intent is magnetic because of magnetite. At one level it works as your personal GPS – your Gaian Positioning System – to let you know when you are on your path and if you stray off it. You can take the easy path or the hard way, they all lead to the same place, which is nowhere. There is no final destination for the Anthropos, but you can go nowhere more enjoyably when you go your own way. How do you know when you’re on the right path? Just follow your nose!
When you form an intention, you align yourself magnetically with the electromagnetic field of the earth. If you’ve taken the Gaian Tantra Vow, that’s what you did when you pricked your thumb for the ritual of iron-binding. There are, in fact, multiple magnetoreceptors in the human body and those of other animals; in how many ways does the Planetary Animal Mother bond with Her magical children? The answer is infinite – the more you look the more you find. This post is about how intent works through magnetite and the ethmoid bone.
The ethmoid bone at the roof of the nose, separates the nasal cavity from the cranium. It is a light, porous bone, containing a high concentration of magnetite. Magnetite is a mineral, also known as iron oxide. Iron combines very easily with oxygen, to form iron oxide and there are sixteen known iron oxides, but magnetite is not the kind found in ordinary rust. The sparks formed by a blacksmith striking hot iron are magnetite, caused by the rapid, exothermic oxidation of tiny particles of iron combining with oxygen, three molecules of iron to four of oxygen. It is the most magnetic of all the naturally occurring minerals on earth.
So, what is it doing in your body?
“Magnetite is the first truly novel material to be discovered as a biochemical precipitate in human tissues since the dawn of medical science-everything else in human bones and soft tissue is either diamagnetic or paramagnetic (e.g., Lowenstam and Weiner, 1989). Magnetite is also the only known metallic compound to be made by living organisms and has the highest electrical conductivity of any cellular material. Although the total amount of magnetite in an adult human is small (a few hundred micrograms), there are several million crystals per gram, each of which interact rather strongly with external magnetic fields. As effects at the cellular level can often lead to global effects, particularly in the neurological and immune systems, it is important for human health to know what this material is doing in human tissues and how it forms.”
Magnetite is not considered to be an essential mineral for humans, it’s not even recognised as a trace mineral. However, trace levels of biogenic magnetite (biologically generated magnetite) are to be found in almost all human tissues, including the brain. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy measurements imply the presence of a minimum of 5 million single-domain crystals per gram for most tissues in the brain and greater than 100 million crystals per gram in parts of the meninges that connect to the central nervous system.
Studies with birds, salmon, trout and honey bees have shown that magnetite helps them align with the magnetic field of the earth. It is presumed that this is used for migration and navigation. Other studies have found that magnetotactic bacteria which contain biogenic bacteria and live in water, are able to swim to the magnetic north in the northern hemisphere and the magnetic south in the southern hemisphere. These magnetogenic bacteria contain perfect magnetite crystals and have been found in al the creatures that have been studied for sensitivity to the earth’s magnetic field and have also been found in human tissue. Magnetoreception is established as fact in all major animal groups and it is now being considered that many higher organisms, including humans, have the ability to form magnetite through biomineralization. In other words, these bacteria are tiny biochemical factories operating throughout your body to breakdown iron and oxygen and make it into magnetite. Is that just so you can find your way home? May be so and in more ways than one.
Biogenic magnetite is ferrimagnetic. That means that it can be polarised to absorb or shield. Ferrimagnetic magnetite is used to shield microwave ovens. The significance of biogenic magnetite has been considered with regard to potential vulnerability to harmful EMFs, but the possibility that it might be intentionally polarised in the body to shield from harmful EMFs has not been considered. This is a subject for further investigation.
Magnetite used to be known as lodestone and pieces of lodestone suspended on a string served as the first magnetic compasses and were used in China as early as 300 BC. When freely suspended on a string, a small piece of lodestone will align itself with Earth’s magnetic field.
Ethmoid bone: the Gaian Positioning System
The ethmoid bone is at the top of the nose, behind the bridge. You can’t feel it with your fingers, but it can make itself known to you with a particular kind of pressure; I’ve discovered that this pressure is subjectively calibrated to intent. When I formed the intention to live the dreaming of this land, it was a voluntary act of independent will (iron) in which I aligned my feeling senses, alchemically generated by oxygen, to the electromagnetic field of the earth. I didn’t make the connection with magnetite initially, but I started to notice this strange pressure deep inside the bridge of my nose when I thought about certain topics.
Interestingly, the features of the ethmoid bone have names like: rooster’s comb (crista galli), labyrinth, concha (snail shell). It connects directly with the dura in the meninges of the brain, that also has a high concentration of magnetite.
The first time I noticed the ethmoid bone, I felt as if my nose was moving across my face; it literally pulled me out the door to a group of rocks that I’d not paid any attention to previously. I noticed their distinctive markings and looked them up and discovered they were serpentinite. From there I discovered that I live on the Eastern Galicia Magnetic Anomaly and that the ancients called Galicia, Ophiussa, the Land of Serpents. Serpentinite gets its distinctive colouring from magnetite, of course.
In humans, magnetite works as a compass for the psyche, as well as a navigational aid for basic directions, because we have the capacity for independent free will.
You can test this function of the ethmoid bone for yourself by forming an intention. An intention is a desired plan of action, with the commitment to follow through with it. You can form an intention about anything you like, but the more your intent aligns with the intent of the earth, the stronger the magnetic attraction that you will feel in the ethmoid bone. Additionally, as you make choices in your day-to-day life, you might become more aware of this pressure and that it fluctuates. For me, when I’m aligned with intent and come to a fork in the road and need to make a choice, the pressure in my ethmoid intensifies when I focus on the better option. The mental commitment to act is usually accompanied by a burst of insight that I hadn’t thought of before and that makes following through with the action easier.
Intent in Correction
This is a critical time for the Rhomay, a dark night in rough terrain. I’ve found that living intentionally is the only way I can balance the gnawing feeling in my gut, that tells me that I should be doing SOMETHING about the situation and the input from my senses, showing me that everything I need to do is right here. The great paradox for the Rhomay is that the drive for individual responsibility and self-reliance is both a strength and a weakness – it has birthed civilizations but succumbed to exploitation. This paradox is ever-present in the ancient history of these lands, where the rocks tell tales. It took around 500 years before the fierce, freedom-loving, skilled and self-reliant Celtic tribes were conquered by the well-organized, disciplined and persistent Romans. Ultimately, it was Christianity that did them in. Everyday I ask myself: what can I do to turn this around?
The only answer I have is to bind myself into the dreaming power of the place where I live and act according to the guidance I receive, even when I don’t know where it will take me. The force of intent flows as an electrifying current, from the magnetic field of the earth directly into the brain and nervous system of anyone who activates it as a sovereign individual. It is one way in which the Planetary Animal Mother is able to reach into your life, to spark new ideas that arise from Her desire to correct the course of Her experiment. It feels like a subtle dance, in which I’m not sure when I’m leading or being led and with a few body slams, when I go off-piste into the hinterland of desire not aligned with my intent. It seems to me that the strength of the Rhomay lies in the uniquely individual ways in which we can act with intent, while surrendering to the supernatural organizing intelligence of the Aeon Sophia. And how do you distinguish between true guidance and the plastic parachutes of the fantastic imagination? You have to jump to find out.
If you’re willing to consider that intent is electromagnetic, then it must be affected by the earth’s magnetic field. The Grand Solar Minimum, the weakening magnetic field of the earth and the increase in cosmic rays are all presented as evidence for a coming mini-ice age and, for sure, you’d be blind not to notice the increase in extreme weather events and the changing seasonal patterns – the rain in Spain falls mainly everywhere, these days. None of the commentators on these events show any willingness to consider the possibility that the earth and sun are conscious creatures and that, seeing as they’ve managed to support life on earth for eons, perhaps they might know what they are doing now? It’s all just repeating cycles, without intentional intervention. That’s the key word here, isn’t it? Intent. Can you contemplate intent without your mind reaching for Jupiter? Did you notice a twinge in your ethmoid bone at that precise moment?
Thelete, the Intended, is emanating through Jupiter and one effect of this is the amplification of intent. Jupiter’s magnetic field is at least 10 times that of the earth. Some scientists have proposed that Jupiter’s Great Red Spot gets its distinctive colouring through iron oxide, but this is not settled science. It is agreed that for the past 150 years the GRS has been contracting and getting taller – reaching out. NASA’s Elizabeth Zubritsky, describes it thus:
“It’s almost like clay being shaped on a potter’s wheel.”
Clay gets its distinctive colouring, red, yellow and grey from the its differing iron oxide content.
In 2016, the European Space Agency’s SWARM satellites identified a ‘molten iron jet stream’ in the northern hemisphere, mostly under Alaska and Siberia that is moving at roughly 50km a year southwards, towards Europe. In 2017, a corresponding ‘supersonic plasma jet stream’ in the upper atmosphere was discovered, which is said to be heating the outer ionosphere to temperatures near 10,000°C.
“Weirdly enough, thanks to some other recent observations from the Swam satellites, we now know that similar systems are at play both in Earth’s upper atmosphere and deep inside its liquid outer core.
Back in December, the ESA team announced that their Swam satellites had detected an accelerating river of molten iron some 3,000 km (1,864 miles) below the surface of Earth, under Alaska and Siberia.
They found that this 420-km-wide (260-mile) jet stream had tripled in speed in less than two decades, and is currently headed towards Europe.
Like the supersonic plasma jets that are zooming through our upper atmosphere, this fast-moving jet of molten iron is directly related to Earth’s magnetic fields.
Differences in temperature, pressure, and composition within the outer core create movements and whirlpools in the liquid metal, and together with Earth’s spin, they generate electric currents, which in turn produce magnetic fields.”
Science can’t tell us very much about any interaction between the Earth and Jupiter, or of any effect that their magnetic fields have on life on this planet. You don’t have to believe anything, because you can direct intent and experience through the magnetite in your nose. In the closing years of the Kali Yuga, the Age of Iron, the game is avout transmuting iron into intent.
This is a short talk, an account of a dream in which I received the instruction for psychoacoustic activation of the nodal points on the earth grid. It is an addendum to Spelling Out Electrosmog and describes a better way of activating the grid. (I think I might have said psychoactive activation at the end of the talk instead of psychoacoustic, so I just wanted to correct that, as no psychoactive guides are necessary for this activation.)
I’ve been prompted on “recognition” several times over the past few months; I had it on the back burner, as one of those things to look into when the time is right. Well, it’s that time right now. A sudden confluence of prompts, signals and synchronicities has led me to conclude that for the Rhomay to defeat the xenosh – you need to recognize recognition! The timing on this is critical, so I’m putting this out, knowing that I don’t have the full story yet. That will materialize, in due course, necessarily through your participation.
So, what is recognition and why is it so important?
This is my working definition: recognition is an aspect or infrasensory perception caused by the simultaneous occurrence of visual and magnetic stimuli that effects experience, gene expression and reality. It is also initiated via intention, as you can form the intention to ‘recognize’ some one or something.
These are the phases of recognition I’ve defined so far:
Electromagnetic pulse from the earth, simultaneously detected by the eyes and sphenoid bone (the sphenoid and connected ethmoid bones are the only bones in the human body to contain ferric iron or magnetite and the eyes and optic nerves rest on them);
Initiated recognition, where you set out to recognize some one or something, such as the intention to meet some one in a crowded bar;
John defines the pulse of recognition as a recoil into the brain, the occult function of vision;
The pulse/recoil is amplified by the sphenoid sinuses and picked up by the pituitary gland (they sit next to each other in a special cavity in the sphenoid bone called the sella turcica);
The pituitary gland responds to the recoil by instructing the other glands to release hormonal compounds specific to the pulse;
The hormones generate emotional and other responses that create different electrical charges in various parts of the body;
The electrical charges interact with histone and non-histone proteins, causing different genes to express;
The change in gene expression causes you to experience a difference in the world around you;
You recognize the change;
When you speak of what you recognize in that moment the sphenoid sinuses (anaerobic repiration in another aspect here) give a particular resonance to the voice, which has a special power when the electromagnetic pulse is expressed through song or words. (Additional info on this here: The Head Sinuses.)
The fractal antenna of your DNA broadcasts a new message to the fractal antennas of the DNA of every other living thing, and so reality changes, via photon release;
The photons inform the morphogenetic field, so that what is recognized is available to other members of the species;
With intentional application, this process informss the epigenesis of the Rhomay.
Other, deeper and even more significant aspects to consider involve how recognition and gene expression affect the Planetary Animal Mother as She clears Her mind at the end of Her Aeonic day and activates Her transpeciation protocols. Another is how existence, or reality for want of a better word, corresponds to the perceptive abilities of the Anthropos. Recognition is an active jolt out of the everyday trance, that shifts the gears on what you experience AND how life expresses itself.
mid-15c., “knowledge of an event or incident; understanding,” from Middle French recognition (15c.) and directly from Latin recognitionem (nominative recognitio) “a reviewing, investigation, examination,” noun of action from past participle stem of recognoscere “to acknowledge, know again; examine” (see recognize).
Sense of “formal avowal of knowledge and approval” is from 1590s; especially acknowledgement of the independence of a country by a state formerly exercising sovereignty (1824). Meaning “a knowing again” is from 1798.
early 15c., “resume possession of land,” back-formation from recognizance, or else from Old French reconoiss-, stem of reconoistre “to know again, identify, recognize,” from Latin recognoscere”acknowledge, recall to mind, know again; examine; certify,” from re- “again” (see re-) + cognoscere”to get to know, recognize” (see cognizance). Meaning “know again, recall or recover the knowledge of, perceive an identity with something formerly known or felt” first recorded 1530s. Related: Recognized; recognizing.”
When you consider the homonyms and phonemes in the words ‘recognition’ and ‘recognize’ your attention is drawn to the ‘cog’ as in ‘a cog in the wheel’, a small part or function in a larger organization. Then ‘gnition’ brings to mind ‘ignition’, as in firing up and ‘nize’, is in the eyes. In other words, the power of recognition is in igniting small changes in reality through the eyes – the spark of recognition.
Recognition occurs whether or not the object of recognition is true. The act of recognition makes a pre-existing story, memory or belief real. It may take some time to show up, some acts of recognition are more subtle than others, but it is a physical process that occurs as naturally as your heartbeat. It is also a fact that the enemies of life are aware of this and use it to their advantage, whereas the Rhomay, for the most part, does not.
What is infrasensory perception?
In The Gaia-Sapiens Exchange, John Lash defines infrasensory perception [ISP] as part of the 6th level of exchange, in which human perceptual experience (the physics of beauty) feeds into the rapture circuits of Gaia-Sophia.
“The 6th exchange involves a rapturous meltdown and conversion of normal perceptual modalities. Access to Gaia’s rapture-circuits occurs when the normal powers of perception mutate in an illuminated moment. This is infrasensory perception in the full range of psychedelic vision, represented in the Great Work by the cauda pavonis, the Peacock’s Tail. In infrasensory perception we see what happens within the senses, rather than passively receiving the impressions they mediate.
Here, as in the case of the reproductive-cognitive exchange, 5, the arrow flows from Sapiens to Gaia. Why? Because the recognition of her rapture-circuits depends on human interest and actually charges the Gaian circuits with new content. In indigenous traditions of native America, any practice that accomplishes this enrapturing of nature is called Beautyway. When these circuits are accessed for healing, the practice is called Blessingway. The most intimate act of knowing Gaia is to encode a set of designated genes in her rapture-circuits.”
The Gaia-Sapiens Exchange was written in 2000, well before the start of Correction and it is only as Correction proceeds that you can begin to see the shape of it. One thing that is becoming rapidly clear is that human senses are being sharpened and extended, so that what was only accessible pre-Correction in non-ordinary consciousness, through the proper use of psychoactive plants, can now be perceived in ordinary consciousness through intent and concentration. That includes insight into the working of the senses, as well as the content delivered by them.
The Sphenoid Bone
The sphenoid bone is an intricate, butterfly shaped arrangement of seven bones in the middle of your skull, towards the front. It is one of the bones supporting the eyeball and the optic nerve. It also houses the two sphenoid sinuses and the pituitary gland in a unique depression named the sella turcica, meaning ‘Turkish saddle’. The sphenoid bone connects to the ethmoid bone, which separates the nasal cavity from the brain and has the largest concentration of magnetite in the human body.
Medical science does not offer a great deal on why the sphenoid contains ferric iron, or why the ethmoid contains magnetite. There is some speculation that it might include orientation to the earth’s magnetic field lines for finding directions. That might be true to some extent, but as medical science does not for the most part recognize the electrical properties of the body, it’s always going to be lacking. Do you think the Aeonic Mother designed you this way by accident?
There are many references to the so-called mystical properties of the sphenoid and there might be some truth to be found there, but there is also a lot of deception and often repeated garbage. I haven’t got the time to wade through it, but there are three aspects that jump out at me:
1. There are many references to amrita, ambrosia, soma, the nectar of divine bliss and immortality, that originates from the sphenoid complex and drips into the mouth. There are conflicting stories on whether this elixir is sweet tasting or slightly salty, whether it comes from the pituitary gland or the sphenoid sinuses. (NB: the sphenoid sinuses are air bags, the seat of anaerobic respiration.)
Consider these illusory references in the light of more recent accounts:
“In close proximity, the Organic Light will taste you. Why? She wants to know if you are delicious enough to eat. When PAM licks you, you realize that are entering the luminosity you behold: you feel a slight pressure on your skin, the texture of something delicious. A most exquisite, delightful sensation, to say the least. Up close the Organic Light looks and feels like melon. This sensation is so magnificent that you tend to swoon into it and may lose awareness of exactly what is happening to you, as may occur at the height of sexual orgasm. Although you remain sober and alert, you overlook something that you are undergoing in the most intimate manner imaginable.
To switch metaphors, consider how you can get a razor cut without catching the precise moment it happens. Then, a second or two later, you see the result: the hairline slit and the exuding blood. Likewise, you get the lick from PAM at a moment when you cannot hold attention totally on the sensation, unless you are in advanced practice. You only know that Gaia has licked you and likes your taste by the sign she gives you: a single drop of perfectly clear mucus leaks from the left nostril. Just one drop, no more. Usually on the left, although it can also happen on the right. This drop of clear mucus is your body’s way of telling you that PAM likes the way you taste.
This nasal drop is a precious elixir prized above all mundane jewels by Gaian ecosorcerers. It is indeed the sign of attainment, of vocation, of selection, of election, of delectation, of sublime complicity. It is the assurance of freedom to depart from the limits of the human condition. One drop comes each time she tastes you and likes it. I have had this single nasal drop many times. In the Christmas session with Jonas on the Ridge, I saw him get the drop. Then he did something that any normal person might do: raised his hand automatically to brush it away. I jumped at him and told him to stop. Then I explained to him what it means to be a snot-nosed kid in the Sophianic Mysteries.
I impart this information, previously reserved for oral transmission among trusted friends in the sanctity of the Mystery cells, to honor the courage and intelligence of those who would now seek to know the Divine Feminine in telluric form, and to foster their sacred intention to engage the mystic-erotic splendor of the planetary body. The taste test is one of the sublime secrets known to those who have fallen into milk. I wish with all the infernal pride of my heart that you who read these words may come to this experience.
I can attest to the ‘left nostril elixir’ in non-ordinary consciousness and also a ‘right nostril elixir, which often appears in ordinary consciousness when I make a connection or discovery, such as with the serpentinite rocks that I mention below.
2. Compare the ancient image of the Caduceus to the image of the sphenoid bone above and the chakra system with the ida and pingala below. In these images I am equating the shushumna to the cavity between the surface of the earth and the upper atmosphere, within which we live (not a channel in the human body) and which comes into us in the electromagnetic pulses I’ve described as initiating recognition.
3. Now, consider this animation of the movement of the sphenoid bone. You can feel the points where the greater wings connect with the mastoid tendons on the side of your head, just in front and slightly above the slight indentation in front of your ears. If you hold your fingers there gently, you can feel a slight pulse – also you might often experience a tension, or slight inflammation there if something has caused the sphenoid to jam. gentle massage and alternate nostril breathing will alleviate this tension in most cases.
Real Life Recognition
Recognition is not an esoteric concept, you do it every day. One of the prompts for this post came from a friend who described a recognition experience to me. She and her husband had bought a derelict property with some land, on a love-at-first sight basis, but hadn’t found the motivation or energy to sell the house they were living in and move to the new property. There was always something in the way, things that needed to be done first and their appetites for the move were zapped.
One day, they were camping out at the property and laying in the garden, enjoying the sun and the birds singing, insects buzzing and something happened. They didn’t know what happened, but they both recognized it and she said to her husband; why don’t we just sell the house as it is and move here and start work on the house? And he agreed. What had previously seemed complicated and a long way off, was suddenly clear and simple. The earth, in a place that they loved, resonated with them and they picked up the signal, recognized it and she said the words that spoke of it and in doing so, co-created that reality.
Another interesting fact about the sphenoid bones and sinuses, is that they are as unique as our fingerprints. There is a unique place on the earth (may be even more than one) of special resonance to each one of us.
As I pondered the subject of recognition, I found myself looking at a pile of rocks that were left over from building our house. Some of them had unusual striations. Heed the obvious, is Tezca’s instruction and there’s not much more obvious than a big pile of rocks crying out for landscaping! I looked up magnetic rocks of Galicia and it turns out that some of the rocks in the pile are serpentinite rocks.
“Serpentinite is a rock composed of one or more serpentine groupminerals, the name originating from the similarity of the texture of the rock to that of the skin of a snake.” Wikipedia
They contain magnetite and are magnetic. I did a bit more research and apparently, I live on the Eastern Galicia Magnetic Anomaly! That is why these experiences are so intense here.
So, the ancients who called this place Ophiussa, the Land of Serpents and were themselves called the serpent or dragon people, recognized what that meant.
Recognition stages 5 & 6 that I describe above, need some evidential support. This is a complex subject, still under investigation, but here is an excerpt from a scientific journal that gets right to the point. In my view, most of the research of the last 20 years is corrupt. This is from a 1975 Scientific American article, entitled Chromosomal Proteins and Gene Regulation:
“We suggest that a specific nonhistone protein becomes phosphorylated, and because phosphate groups are negatively charged the nonhistone protein begins to repel the negatively charged DNA and also becomes strongly associated with the positively charged histones. The effect of these two processes is to cause the displacement of the histone-nonhistone protein complex from the DNA. The resulting naked area of DNA, now free of the inhibitory histone, can be transcribed into RNA.”
This excerpt is noteworthy because it describes gene expression in electromagnetic terms, as a response to the continuous effects of attraction and repelling. The biochemical interaction between hormones and gene expression has been well-studied, particularly in relation to thyroid hormones, and although the electrical aspect remains to be explored there is sufficient evidence already available to show that life functions electromagnetically, as well as biochemically. This makes for many interconnections and relationships that cannot be observed with the ordinary senses, but can be perceived from within the senses – ISP.
As more cosmic rays are now interacting with the earth’s atmosphere, due to the location of the earth within the galaxy, the electromagnetic potential between the upper atmosphere and the surface of the earth is also increasing – there are more electrical storms, flooding and extreme weather events. The conditions are very similar to those of 13th and 14th century Europe, when the Black Death also occurred. The events of those times have been well-documented in this report Black Death and Abrupt Earth Changes in the 14th Century.
I’ll be addressing the Black Death in more detail in the next post, the point I want to make here is that the Christian people of Europe (Christianity having been forced on them over many centuries) recognized the floods, plague and ‘death from the sky’ as evidence of Biblical prophecy and they (unwittingly) made it real. However, even during those times there were pockets and communities in every country across Europe who were not affected.
The xenosh and the Rhomay are in a war of recognition, to put it one way. I’ve mentioned before about how you recognize signs of healing, as opposed to symptoms of disease, in order to reboot your immune system. This is one way to ‘recognize recognition’ at the subjective and personal level, to test it and recognize the results. On a larger scale, the Rhomay win the war of recognition by first recognizing the Supernatural power of the Planetary Animal Mother and then recognizing Her responses to our focused intent. It is impossible for the xenosh to win this war, because the faculty of recognition is endowed in the Rhomay and the xenosh are using this faculty to turn themselves into something that is non-Rhomay. Accordingly, the more intensity they bring to their recognition of events supporting their master plan, the more dilute the effects of their actions. Conversely, the more intensity and focus you, Rhomay, bring to recognition the stronger you become.
I’m working on the Gaian Alchemy Course at the moment, editing it for publication on Nemeta and getting ready to start teaching it at retreats here next year. As always happens when you focus on anything to do with the Sophianic Mysteries, your attention intensifies the subject of study and brings it to the forefront of your life. Such is the alchemical process of magnification, right in your face. As such, I’m writing this in alt-reel time, as a work-in-progress and a taster of what’s to come.
In the Gaian Alchemy Course, John Lash describes the purpose of the ‘Great Work’, the incremental (increasing) aspect of the Human Effect on the Cosmos, as such:
“In simple language this means [the Human] must realize how to fulfill itself by giving out far more than it ever takes in, or needs to take in. This of course totally defies the second law of thermodynamics, the law of entropy which states that any “energy system” will ultimately exhaust itself in the process of converting in-put and out-put back and forth.
But to defy entropy is quite presumptuous. A genuine alchemist will never make any fantastic claims that cannot be supported by the evidence of nature. If the alchemist sees far-reaching possibilities of the Human, the prospect must be verified through a real phenomenon already existing in nature, so that what the alchemist proposes can be seen as a natural extension of that phenomenon.
The notion of the Human extending and completing Nature is [summarized]: what Nature takes a long time to evolve, the Human finishes off in a short time. So far, we see mostly the destructive aspects of this dynamic. But the alchemists had another angle on all this. In many strange statements, they frequently referred to the Human as taking up the work of Nature and completing it.
“In the symbols and rites of metallurgical operations there comes into being the idea of an active collaboration of man and nature, perhaps even the belief that man, by his own work, is capable of superseding the processes of nature.” The Forge and the Crucible: The Origins and Structure of Alchemy, Mircea Eliade.”
So my first question was: where is the evidence for Human increase, or completion of the processes of Nature?
One of my favourite methods of inquiry is to form a question and hold it lightly in my mind, resisting groping around for answers from any pre-existing knowledge or experience. Some patience is needed (not my personal forte) and after a while, at exactly the right time the answer is revealed through a series of ‘clues’. The Wisdom Goddess loves this game and guides you to what you are looking for, and more.
And She collapses Time in the process. The Aeonic Mother had, in fact, been guiding me to this question before I was even aware I had a question and had already set me up to begin exploring the interaction of minerals in the body – I’ve written posts on sulphur and iodine and in the blink of an eye, a book called Minerals for the Genetic Code, by Charles Walters, dropped into my lap.
I found this book very interesting. It describes the work of Dr Richard Olree who has created a ‘map’ that brings together several different ‘perspectives’ of the human body and finds the correlations between them. These perspectives are the Standard Genetic Code, the Walter Russell table of the elements (as opposed to the more familiar Mendelyev table), the relevant electric valences from the Mendelyev table, the amino acids that are coded, the vertebra of the spine, the meridians and the I Ching. The resulting map is called the Olree Biological Periodic Chart.
A Cautionary Note on Genes
Before I go into the main topic of this post, I want to make a brief comment on the subject of genetics: the theory that DNA makes RNA which makes protein is referred to as ‘the central dogma’ and is mostly theoretical. The more the genome is studied (in the mode of current science) the less is known and the only common ground is that the current view is incomplete, simplistic and not supported by evidence. Bruce Lipton’s research presented in the Biology of Belief, that genes are not deterministic of behaviour via the proteins they code, but responsive to signals from the environment that are themselves shaped by belief and perception, follows a well-developed line of inquiry.
“For biological research, the twentieth century has arguably been the century of the gene. The central importance of the gene as a unity of inheritance and function has been crucial to our present understanding of many biological phenomena. Nonetheless, we may well have come to the point where the use of the term “gene” is of limited value and might in fact be a hindrance to our understanding of the genome. Although this may sound heretical, especially coming from a card-carrying geneticist, it reflects the fact that, unlike chromosomes, genes are not physical objects but are merely concepts that have acquired a great deal of historic baggage over the past decades.”
Geneticist William Gelbart (1998)
Modern gene research bears a certain resemblance to Pasteur’s germ research, in which the theory with the greatest profit potential, ie one germ, one pharmaceutical to kill it, killed offthe superiorscientific research regarding how the organism responded to the environment, of Antoine Beauchamp. Today, you just need to identify the gene that causes the problem and money will be thrown at you to splice it out!
Watson and Crick won the Nobel Prize for discovering the structure of DNA in 1962, after at least 10 years research into how DNA stored and replicated hereditary traits. The double-helix DNA model is familiar to everyone, but these images are all computer generated and based on X-ray crystallography, which involves scattering X-rays off atoms in crystallized arrays of DNA to form complex patterns of dots on photographic film. Images are then interpreted using complex mathematics. They are not real.
These images are of DNA strands, seen through an electron microscope, which sees electrons rather than photons. The first image (A) shows the chromosomes, which only come to light when the cell is preparing to divide. The bottom image is of chromatin, which is how DNA looks when it is not dividing.
I am considering the outrageous possibility that the Anthropic genome is not to be found in the DNA at all, but (at least in part) projected into the ‘vessel’ with the DNA acting as a receiver of sorts. Not so far fetched maybe if you consider the work of Luc Montagnier, joint winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2008, who claims that DNA can send electromagnetic imprints of itself over distance, which can be used by enzymes to create exact copies of the original DNA. (See: DNA Waves and Water. ) He filed a US Patent on technology that can detect the ‘phantom replica’ of DNA, unfortunately without knowing that the US Patent Office is run by xenosh crooks.
Whichever way you look at it, genetics is far from settled science, so bear that in mind as you read this post.
The I Ching and Gaian Alchemy
When you’re hot on the trail, everything happens at once and this showed up right on time in Lesson 4 of the Gaian Alchemy Course:
“The three stages of the Great Work are Formation, Fixation, Multiplication. In the last stage, the multiplicatio or magnificatio in the old latin lingo, a condition of total porosity is achieved in the human mass, in the flesh.
The same idea is expressed with elegant clarity in the I Ching, or Book of Changes. The commentary on the 42nd hexagram, “I” or “Increase” says:
“A sacrifice of the higher element that produced an increase of the lower is called an out-and-out increase: it indicates the spirit that alone has power to save the world.”
And the text adds that “this conception expresses the fundamental idea upon which the Book of Changes is based.”
Infinity is Change. In this passage “I” is the exact equivalent of increment in the alchemical sense. An “out-and-out” increase must be one in which a new element is truly added to what is originally given.
Only a physics that excludes the Human could ignore this illuminating primary idea by positing the inevitable run-down of creation into a snuffed-out slag-heap adrift in aching emptiness.
But this is not our way.”
To know what and how the Anthropos does to complete the work of Sophia and Thelete, requires a shift in perception and the ability to hold that perception stable in the symbiotic mind and simultaneously act upon it. The Sophianic Narrative provides the conceptual framework for such a shift, which will lead to an actual physiological transmutation caused by recognition of the true material structure of the human animal and its co-creative functionality.
So, while drunk on this notion, I looked up what Dr Olree had to say about Hexagram 42. What a let down! He has Hex 42 linked with a STOP codon (which ends a transcription process) and Lumbar 3, which manages the legs and urination. That does not correlate with the meaning of ‘Increase’, which incidentally, he has translated as ‘Benefit’.
When I first looked at the Olree Chart, it struck me as odd that he worked from the bottom up on the spine, starting with the Coccyx bones, and correlated the hexagrams in reverse; so Coccyx 4 correlated with Hex 64 and at the top of the spine, Hex 1 with the Cervical 1 bone at the top of the neck. This makes sense as Hex 1 refers to the creative force, which tends to be associated with mind and the head, but it can also be taken as a reference to the initial conditions of the inception of life. The dragons refer to the telluric currents of the Aeon Sophia as She became the earth.
My copy of the I Ching says:
“When all the lines are nines, it means:
There appears a flight of dragons without heads.
So, I wondered what would show up if I reversed the order of the Hexagrams in the Olree Chart – I Ching ker-ching!
Tritium and Hexagram 42
When I reversed the order of the I Ching hexagrams in the Olree Chart, #42 correlated with Thoracic disc 5, the lung meridian (active at 4am), the amino acid asparagine and the element tritium (bebegen in the Russell chart).
This woman is indicating the location of Thoracic 5 on the front of the body.
In the Olree Chart, this point on the body correlates with tritium, also known as hydrogen-3 as it is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen.
According to the Wikipedia entry on tritium:
“The nucleus of tritium (sometimes called a triton) contains one proton and two neutrons, whereas the nucleus of protium (by far the most abundant hydrogen isotope) contains one proton and no neutrons. Naturally occurring tritium is extremely rare on Earth, where trace amounts are formed by the interaction of the atmosphere with cosmic rays. It can be produced by irradiating lithium metal or lithium-bearing ceramic pebbles in a nuclear reactor. Tritium is used as a radioactive tracer, in radioluminescent light sources for watches and instruments, and, along with deuterium, as a fuel for nuclear fusion reactions with applications in energy generation and weapons. The name of this isotope is derived from the Greek tritos meaning ‘third’.”
According to the Russian Wikipedia entry (which is different to the English version), it costs $30 million to produce one kilo of tritium.
Tritium is an odourless, tasteless, invisible vapour that is a transmutational element. It decays into helium-3, a radioactive isotope of helium.
This is part of what the Russian Wikipedia says about helium-3:
“Most of the helium-3 on Earth, preserved from the time of its formation. It is dissolved in the mantle and gradually enters the atmosphere, its isotopic abundance in the mantle the magma is 4-10 parts per million parts of helium-4, and some of the materials of mantle origin, have 10-40 times higher ratio than in the atmosphere. However, its supply from the mantle into the10 parts per million parts of helium-4, and some of the materials of mantle origin, have 10-40 times higher ratio than in the atmosphere. However, its supply from the mantle into the atmosphere (through volcanoes and fissures in the bark) is estimated at only a few pounds a year. Some of the helium-3 is emitted in the decay of tritium, spallation reactions on lithium (under the action of alpha particles and cosmic rays) and comes from the solar wind. On the Sun and in the atmospheres of the giant planets of the primary helium-3 is much greater than in the Earth’s atmosphere.”
And this is an addition in the English Wikipedia:
“Production, sales and distribution of helium-3 in the United States are managed by the US Department of Energy (DOE) Isotope Program. Virtually all helium-3 used in industry today is produced from the radioactive decay of tritium. Tritium is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen and is typically produced by bombarding lithium-6 with neutrons in a nuclear reactor. The lithium nucleus absorbs a neutron and splits into helium-4 and tritium. Tritium decays into helium-3 with a half-life of 12.3 years, so helium-3 can be produced by simply storing the tritium until it undergoes radioactive decay.
Tritium is a critical component of nuclear weapons and historically it was produced and stockpiled primarily for this application. The decay of tritium into helium-3 reduces the explosive power of the fusion warhead, so periodically the accumulated helium-3 must be removed from warhead reservoirs and tritium in storage. Helium-3 removed during this process is marketed for other applications.
For decades this has been, and remains, the principal source of the world’s helium-3.However, since the signing of the START I Treaty in 1991 the number of nuclear warheads that are kept ready for use has decreased This has reduced the quantity of helium-3 available from this source. Helium-3 stockpiles have been further diminished by increased demand, primarily for use in neutron radiation detectors and medical diagnostic procedures. US industrial demand for helium-3 reached a peak of 70,000 liters (approximately 8 kg) per year in 2008. Price at auction, historically about $100/liter, reached as high as $2000/liter Since then, demand for helium-3 has declined to about 6000 liters per year due to the high cost and efforts by the DOE to recycle it and find substitutes.
The DOE recognized the developing shortage of both tritium and helium-3. and began producing tritium by lithium irradiation at the Tennessee Valley Authority‘s Watts Bar Nuclear Generating Station in 2010. In this process tritium-producing burnable absorber rods (TPBARs) containing lithium in a ceramic form are inserted into the reactor in place of the normal boron control rods Periodically the TPBARs are replaced and the tritium extracted.
Currently only one reactor is used for tritium production but the process could, if necessary, be vastly scaled up to meet any conceivable demand simply by utilizing more of the nation’s power reactors. Substantial quantities of tritium and helium-3 could also be extracted from the heavy water moderator in CANDU nuclear reactors.”
Apparently, plans are underway for mining helium-3 on the moon!
And then there’s this:
“Despite the objections of local fishermen, the tritium-tainted water stored at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant will be dumped into the sea, a top official at Tokyo Electric says.
“The decision has already been made,” Takashi Kawamura, chairman of Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc., said in a recent interview with the media.
Tritium typically poses little risk to human health unless ingested in high amounts, and ocean discharges of diluted volumes of tritium-tainted water are a routine part of nuclear power plant operations. This is because it is a byproduct of nuclear operations but cannot be filtered out of water.
As of July 6, about 777,000 tons were stored in about 580 tanks at the Fukushima plant, which is quickly running out of space.*
“And I’m beginning to wonder, really wonder, if the timing a Fukushima with correction may not be one of the greatest lessons in duplicity that comes out of the GNE. Consider that Jupiter is now in the twins, I was looking at it about an hour ago, it was directly at the apex over the house here. Crystal-clear evening, the night sky, black as onyx or ebony. Brilliant figure of Orion, high in the sky. And to the left of Orion, Jupiter in the twins. The twins have a connotation of duplicity which is a form of evil and manipulation. But the twins also have connotation up doubling, and let’s say, let’s add to that, let’s add to the themes of the twins, the theme of a Janus like power. A power that has two faces, destructive and regenerative. Its obvious and the evidence is there as seen in the documentary clips in Hiroshima Mon Amour, that nuclear energy can be extremely destructive when it is made to explode in the form of a bomb. But suppose that coupled with that destruction is a regenerative power. Suppose that the much feared radio activity has, in Gaian terms, some kind of regenerative role. Who’s to say it doesn’t? We haven’t been exposed to it long enough to know. The evidence is skewed by the horrific connotations that go along with the word radio activity, radiation disease, and so forth. But in fact where is the evidence that radiation has produced massive mutation of our species since 1945?”
And a bit further on in the Briefing:
“Because you can search far and wide and I don’t think that you’ll find anybody, any scientist, any expert, or even any mystic telling you what is the place of radio activity in nature, in Her on Her terms. We didn’t invent it. Ever since 1945 the human species has been laboring under the illusion that we created Atomic Energy. This is ridiculous. Nor did we create the radiation that precedes from atomic explosions. We did not create that energy. She did. And so the question to ask is; what does She use it for? What is it? Maybe this is the moment to really turn the human mind around and to look at Gaian processes at the most elementary levels matter as if seeing it through Her mind and Her eyes. I do not feel confident about what I’m telling you now, but in a way I do, in an odd way I do feel confident. Here’s one thing I can say of which I feel confident. If nuclear radiation so-called, is actually a bionic excitation produced by the first attention of the Aeon Sophia, then it must be verifiable as such.”
“That is where correction begins, on the frontier of Gaian Alchemy… or frontiers because there are more than one. There are more than one frontier; it is a vast frontier, defined by those operations the Aeon Sophia performs through the use of her first attention. Whether she performs them at the so called elementary level of matter, in the presence of the radioactive minerals that occur naturally in the earth, such as uranium and plutonium, cesium, whether she performs those actions in the realm of biology and genetics, whether she performs them in maritime biology, in the chemistry of the oceans, whether she performs them in the dynamic chemistry of the atmosphere, the troposphere, the ionosphere, and whether she performs them deep in the physio-chemical and neuro-chemical recesses of the human animal. These are the frontiers of Gaian Alchemy. At the moment that correction dawns, so comes that opportunity. This momentous opportunity to reframe and revision the science the theoretical and applied science in those many domains where the operations of the Aeon Sophia are perpetual, and often inaccessible although ultimately not beyond the range of human investigation, experimentation and verification.”
And that is where I am now, on the wild frontier of Gaian Alchemy, launching off into a new adventure. So, what is tritium to the Planetary Animal Mother? And what is the function of tritium in the human body? What links Gaian Alchemy, Hexagram 42 and tritium?
I can’t answer those questions, yet. In the Aeonic timframe, we are barely into Correction, maybe 10-11 seconds, but everything happens at once in alt-reel time. I can barely keep up, which is why this exposition is somewhat rambling and inconclusive – to misquote some one: I had no time to write a shorter post!
In researching tritium/bebegen I looked to find what Walter Russell had to say on it. That will be covered in a subsequent post, but here’s a little curiosity to end with: on a site called www.merlib.org, subtitled the Modern Energy Research Library, at the bottom of the page on tritium is a link to a company called Trivortex – this is the company that Anton created, he who made the water discs for Nemeta. Coincidence or clue?????
Around the first quarter moon, seven or eight nights into this Bhairavi/Shodashi double shift, I dreamt about the sword in the stone. It was more an observation than a dream, the sword in the stone with an image of the brain superimposed on it.
A few days after my dream, John presented the Jupiter timeline, shown here.
But what is the meaning of the sword in the stone/brain motif?
Cueing is a subtle function of the mirroring attention. As it dances and shimmers, it fires neurons and dendrites in your brain into sparking up new synapses and guides your perception so that you notice some things rather than others. When such a powerful image as the sword in the stone, embedded as it is in the human imagination, shows up in a dream and in the sky and literally on earth within the same timeframe, it is an irresistible call to investigate further. Especially as I’d also been given a tarot card, the Queen of Swords, in a dream six months previously. The second image, of the sword in the brain, was my starting point – what connects the two images?
I like to play with the three attentions to get my dopamine fix, so I looked up some images of the brain.
The first thing that caught my attention was a structure called the fornix. I’d never heard of it before.
“The term fornix comes from Latin and means “arch.” It is used to refer to various arch-like structures in the body, but when used in reference to the brain it indicates a bundle of white matter fibers that arches around the thalamus…..
……The diverse group of structures known as the limbic system is now thought to be involved in much more than emotion, and the fornix is still considered an important part of the limbic system. The fornix acts as the primary outgoing pathway from the hippocampus, and thus its most recognized function is its involvement in memory. The hippocampal projections that travel in the fornix are thought to be important for memory consolidation, and damage to the fornix has been associated with anterograde amnesia, which involves the inability to create new memories. Fornix damage is primarily linked to deficits in declarative memories, or memories for factual information—and especially episodic memories, which are a type of declarative memory that deals with autobiographical information.”
The fornix is also known as the dream box, as it is said to be where your dreams come from. So this arched, vault-like structure, that brought to mind the outline of an anvil, links your experiences to your sense of self, through the faculties of memory and dreaming. Wow – what a hit!
(BTW: if that wasn’t enough, women also have a fornix near the cervix that is involved in orgasms.
According to the Constellations of Words, the word fornix is linked to fornax:
“The word broth (from *bhreue-) resembles the word brothel. Brothels were called fornices (hence fornication), i.e. ‘arches’, because prostitutes used to gather ‘under the arches’ of certain buildings of ancient Rome . The word brothel comes from another *bhreu– root: *bhreu– Also bhreue-. ‘To cut, break up’. Derivatives: brittle, brothel (from Old English breothan, to deteriorate, from Germanic *breuthan, to be broken up), bruise, frustule (the hard, siliceous bivalve shell of a diatom), frustum (the portion of a solid – normally a cone or pyramid – which lies between two parallel planes cutting the solid). [Pokorny 1. bhreu– 169, 2. bhreu–s– 171. Watkins]
The word brand from Old French brand, and Old Norse brandr, also meant a ‘sword, or sword-blade.’
“In alchemical terms, ‘the Philosopher’s Sword’ is the fire in the furnace” [Penguin Symbols].
An athanor, or alchemists’ furnace, is an Arabic word ‘al-tannur‘, Hebrew tannur, related to Akkadian tinnuru, meaning a furnace or oven, usually shaped like an egg . Built of brick or clay, it was designed to keep an even heat over long periods of time. The alchemists considered it an incubator and sometimes referred to it as the ‘House of the Chick.’  The making of the Philosopher’s Stone (also referred to as the Philosopher’s Egg) requires the combination of the purest possible sulfur and the purest possible mercury, to be combined in the athanor .
Alchemists regarded the athanor, in which the process of transmutation took place, [as] an egg-shaped matrix, like the world itself, which is a gigantic egg, the Orphic egg which may be found at the base of all initiatory rites both in Egypt and in Greece. And just as Ruah Elohim, the Spirit of the Lord, floats upon the waters, so ought the spirit of the world, the spirit of life, to float above the waters of the athanor. The alchemist needed the skill to make this spirit his own.(GRIM p. 392) [Penguin Symbols]”
And there is the link between the sword in the stone and the sword in the brain: in alchemical terms, ‘the Philosopher’s Sword’ is the fire in the fornix. The fornix is the biological structure that enables you to self-identify within the dreaming of the Wisdom Goddess, so that Her dream can come through you and the sky writing shows what is currently being fired up. So far so good.
Thalamus, bridal chamber and cosmic egg
You will also notice that the structure below the fornix, the thalamus, is egg shaped. The walnut-sized thalamus is located right in the centre of the brain and is variously referred to as the cosmic egg, the bridal chamber and the gateway to consciousness. Its main function is to distribute incoming sensory information to appropriate regions of the cortex so that it can be actioned or stored. However, it also functions as a gatekeeper, only delivering information in accordance with your state of consciousness. In non-ordinary consciousness, such as in a telestic or shamanic trance or a full-body kundalini experience the thalamus is the dipole centre-point of the feminine/negatively charged pituitary gland via the ida channel and the masculine/positively charged pineal gland via the pingala channel. In these peak experiences the cortex is so flooded with information that it is often impossible to act on it, or even recognize it at the time. The fornix holds this content in memory, as part of your life experience and helps you process it in dreams so that you can express it later.
The thalamus doesn’t get much attention, as compared to the more popular pineal gland, but turns out to be quite mysterious. It was named by a Greek physician, Claudius Galen who lived from around 129AD to 210AD and went to Rome to revive the ideas of Hippocrates. He described and named the thalamus, meaning ‘bridal chamber’ from ‘thalamos’ meaning inner room. He considered that the thalamus supplied the ‘animal spirit’ to the optic nerves. The part that looks like the egg yolk is called the Massa Intermedia, but only 70-80% of the population have one and it is often smaller in men. It is a bundle of tissue that connects the two halves of the ‘thalamus walnut’ and is said to be functionless by medical science! Intermedia means connection across multiple channels and the thalamus is also a part of a flower.
Can you hear the bells?
Note also, the similarity between the Eye of Horus and the thalamus, with its yolk like Massa Intermedia.
At this point in my research, my mind leapt to the second attention, the realm of imagination, so I decided to sleep on it. The next day was the 7th September, when Jupiter completed its seven month cycle and returned to the womb of the Virgin and Arcturus was high and bright in the sky. Perfect conditions for a shamanic realignment session to explore this topic in non-ordinary consciousness.
Shamanic Realignment of the Imagination
In the most general sense, a shamanic realignment session realigns your imagination with the imagination of the earth. You need an intention or topic to make the connections and in this instance I aimed to witness what was happening with the sword in the stone/brain motif. A shamanic realignment session differs from a telestic session in that you invite the Wisdom Goddess into your body, as opposed to going out to meet Her. The subject is more personal than for a telestic session and can focus on a healing issue or what might be termed, self-actualization or transmutation.
Before the session I made sure to get express permission from my two male companions, to guide the process – a crucial prerequisite. This time I was able to describe the activation of the ida and pingala as they snaked up my spine, crossing at the chakras, as it was happening. As soon as they passed they passed the throat chakra, the temperature dropped, the honeycomb lattice became visible and there was a low, subauditory hum around the tipi. Then all the dogs in the neighbourhood started barking and our dogs ploughed into the tipi, like hyper-excited children at a birthday party. It was immediately clear to me that this session was going to be hands-on learning.
The lesson was in concentration and how to speak so that the power of the Aeonic Mother is in the words. I told my companions that rather than being disturbed by the dogs, we were going to use our focus and concentration to silence the area and stop our dogs from entering the tipi. I guided them in holding focus and concentration and that’s what we did. We were able to repeat the process three times, so that we were all satisfied that the silence and non-disturbance was the result of our focus and concentration. The simply beautiful take-away from that lesson was that it really doesn’t take much effort to enforce your boundary and bring calm to your immediate vicinity. Don’t invite in what you don’t want. Boundaries are sacred to the Aeons.
But what does this have to do with the sword in the stone? There is always a flood of information that comes with these sessions, as new synaptic connections are made in the brain. The power of the word is given to all sovereign human animals but, in order to use it, you must recognize your own sovereignty. You can only recognize your sovereignty through your actions, when you rise to the challenge and grasp the sword with both hands – that is to speak the truth, intentionally and clearly, at the time that it matters.
I add the qualifier, ‘intentionally and clearly’ because mindless chatter and emotional outbursts, no matter how personally intense, do not wield Her power. Neither does logic without personal involvement, no matter how well expressed. It is only when you care deeply enough about something AND are able to maintain the presence of mind to be able to speak clearly in the moment, that the ida and pingala bring sufficient charge to the thalamus, and the ‘bridal chamber’ regenerates. Then you know you share the power of the Wisdom Goddess.
As Arcturus pointed to Jupiter in the womb of the Virgin, the legend of King Arthur was cued and called your attention to the question of sovereignty; were you born to be sovereign, to wield the supreme power of the Aeon Sophia, to co-create your experience with your words? Spelling only works when you hold the s-word.
“The highest desire of the gaian dakinis is that you command them with pleasure.”

In 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.”
