I speak for the weeds (a poem)

chipmunk and weeds.jpg

From a matrix of sand, spewing gravel, humus, and a heartfelt explosion

of abundance

I sing unending joy. I drive, poke, peek, push

From within the ranks of green soldiers constantly mown down in an acceptance of defeat

I rise up, we rise up, diverse, tangled, fleshy, juicy, untamed

We are the voice and talents of our beloved undomesticated mother.

Living unframed, we are the wild women

shamed into invisibility or porn

Our abilities mostly unseen, our beauty defamed

We are pushed outside the acceptable window of vision

Those who purportedly seek status, perfection, power

cannot see us

We know no hierarchy

Only freedom entices us. We are the artists and purveyors of the green side of the brain

The heart of darkness of humanity has plunged us into a blind eye

plumbed the heart of being into a footnote.

Yet we embody the feminine power of birth, life,  healing, and the creative juice

Infinite shapes, textures, chemicals, potentials, striving

We remain pure, never hybridized, not studied, used, developed

Just poisoned, attacked, eliminated

We bother the perfect unity of control. We are not an image with which you can comfort yourself

We hear of the genocide of peoples

We are told of the extermination of animals

The endangerment of species

Yet here we live, wild

in the perfection of multiplicity

An infinite expression of life force

We are the motion inside of you

The water that feeds you

The medicine that heals you

We are the voice of love from your mother

The mother you never embrace, thank, or appreciate. Your toes have not wriggled near our roots and the worms for so long.

Yet our contact would restore you to balance and bring you peace and health.

I speak for the weeds, whose passionate expression of indomitable life cannot be crushed

Remember, gardener.

What are you growing? Who are you helping? What are you creating?

We are here to help.

 

Anomalisa, childhood, and the fading of wonder

anomalisa 2

Dearest readers,

Yesterday I was listening to an attempt to explain why time seems to speed up as we grow older. When we are young children, an afternoon stretches out for an eternity, whether or not we are enjoying ourselves. A summer break from school contains the perspective of endless freedom and joy. Why is it that the impression of the passage of time, which, while only a convention invented by humans for humans in the third dimension, changes so much as we age?

summer childhood

My personal impression and belief is that the closer we each are to high frequency energies and unity, which is the typical condition of early childhood but also of great wisdom and spirituality, the more timeless our experience of life becomes. I believe that artists, musicians, creatives, gardeners, empaths, and sensitives of all disciplines are more easily able to enter this zone of timelessness so prized in great works of art.

tarkovsky quote

 

I also once read that the convention of the clock or universal time was created because the powers that be realized that certain areas on the globe experienced faster or slower experiences of reality. In other words, zones such as sacred sites (cathedrals, mountains, pyramids, Druidic stone structures, cave paintings, etc.) and those living near these sites would experience a slowing down of time.

Hand-Stencils-Cueva-de-las-Manos.jpg.1000x0_q80_crop-smart

 

The high energy frequencies of these sites are the reason for which time and time again, humans would build sacred burial mounds, churches and other places of worship on these nodes, lay lines, and portals. I wonder if people who live near these places of pure energy experience longer life, more wonder, creativity in their lives? One could imagine that people vibrating at a higher frequency would be drawn to such sites. In the United States, places such as Mount Shasta, Mount Ida, Sedona, are among the high frequency sites.

machu pichu.jpg

In contrast, places where there has been much war, death, and devastation, I would venture to imagine that time goes by faster. The Earth retains a memory of all that has occurred at each site. Fortunately, we are currently experiencing a cleansing of the planet. Gaia has chosen to heal herself, and as she raises her frequency, so has humanity begun this process of cleansing.

vaporadora.jpg

As we begin to heal, we also long to slow down and to live more simply. When we do slow down, it becomes easier to look inward and to reconnect to our imagination, intuition, and to our connection to the planet, one another, and to our highest versions. A simple life is conducive to a state of wonder. As we move from living in our heads to healing our emotional bodies and returning to our hearts, our senses open as well. The sychronicities that artists, sensitives, and the spiritually awake have always seen will become visible to everyone. It is really about paying attention and knowing that everything we perceive in the so-called “outside” world is conscious and speaking to us.

compassion

This childlike sense of wonder that our current society beats out of us in a very intentional manner from such an early age is key to our happiness. As we each learn to deeply love our self and to see every other being and thing as alive, conscious, and connected to our self, the beauty of the world, of humanity will become apparent to us again. Instead of judging and constantly criticizing self and others, we will feel joy and remember that we are all creators of realities. Knowing we are powerful and that we create our lives from within at each moment is a great generator of wonder. Instead of living as victims in a world that goes against most of our innate beliefs about life, we can now choose and take responsibility for our experiences of reality every day.

timeless

The movie “Anomalisa”, directed by Spike Jonze and written by Charlie Kaufman (director of my favorite film, “Being John Malkovich”), is a great example of how we live in our heads, how we allow our adult self to be controlled and brainwashed by the illusion of a societal vision of reality, and how wonder brings life back into full color.

Free download bluray 1080p 720p movie google drive Being John Malkovich, USA, 1999, Spike Jonze, Cameron Diaz, Eric Weinstein, John Cusack, Ned Bellamy.jpg

In the film, all of the characters are very realistic animated puppets. Unlike in “Being John Malkovich”, where real people manipulate one another like puppets, and where the puppets in the film have strings, the situation in “Anomalisa” is more enigmatic. There is no duality between “reality” and “fiction”. The entire reality is composed of puppets. In Kaufman’s artistic reality, puppetry is very symbolic of how we live co-dependent lives as victims and manipulators. We live in separation from self and see others as a source of joy, wonder, pleasure, energy…whatever it is we feel we lack to be whole, sovereign beings. Both films are very philosophical but can be enjoyed on various levels.

anomalisa-xlarge

The main character of “Anomalisa” is a motivational speaker, Michael Stone, from the U.K., who has come to Cincinnati, Ohio for a customer service conference. All of the other characters in the film share the same male voice (played by actor Tom Noonan), with the exception of Lisa (voice by Jennifer Jason Leigh), a young woman who ends up spending the night in Stone’s hotel room. All of the events are fairly banal. We, as viewers, sense that Stone is depressed. He lives a conventional life: he is married, has a child, and a good career. People appear to like him. Yet he feels alone, separate from the remainder of humanity. The emotional connection between Stone and life has been severed, and he lives inside his head. Which is why everyone speaks with the same voice. He cannot relate to others, differentiate people from one another, or see the beauty in the uniqueness of each person.

anomalisa 3.jpg

Lisa, who is a customer service representative, is attending the conference with a more vivacious and charismatic friend and co-worker. Lisa seems to lack self-esteem due to scarring from an injury, which has also affected her emotional well-being. Michael and Lisa connect, and they sleep together. They discuss the meaning of the word “anomaly”, which is why Stone begins to call her Anomalisa. He begins to open his heart, to differentiate her from other people, to see her and feel her presence as alive. He begins, for a short time, to come alive himself.

puppets

Because, like most of us, Michael is trained to see love and completeness as something outside of self which is inaccessible,  he yearns to find wonder and emotional completeness in the world. When he meets Anomalisa and her presence touches him, he sees her as an anomaly in his dull, emotionally colorless life. After they sleep together, and Lisa expresses a desire to continue the relationship beyond the spontaneous experience of that evening, her individual voice fades into the male monotone of all of the other characters in the film. As Michael Stone disconnects emotionally from his own heart and from Lisa, his sense of wonder leaves him once again.

reflection

The film is very interesting because the puppets are so very real. They move and live in a world exactly like the one that has been created for us. And this is fascinating because it shows us up front that our collective reality is in fact an illusion. It looks real, and it evokes all of the emotions we experience in the collective nightmare that has been given to us as reality. This is disturbing until we wake up and realize as Kaufman has that the world our culture has given to us is not reality.

puppets 2

When we reawaken to wonder and to our true human abilities as creators and emotional beings, we can step out of our puppet skins. We can stop fooling our self, stop manipulating others to get what we think we need to be happy. We can take back our power and create beauty and emotional satisfaction in our own lives. Wonder is at our fingertips at every moment. All we need to do is slow down, stop, look, listen, and see. We live in a magnificent world, full of beautiful emotional beings. We have been taught to put up walls around our self. To protect self from others. We leave reality and we become lonely, hurt, disappointed. The monstrous world of narcissism, co-dependency, manipulation, but also of artistic creation reflected in Kaufman’s films is a wonderful mirror to help us, as human beings, to remember who we really are.

Energy, light, plants, and prayer

kirlian mushroom

Dearest readers,

Every living being and every object has an electomagnetic field or energy signature which fluctuates. The beings around us and the environments in which we live affect our field. Cell phones, information, music, microwaves, thoughts, colors…all of these things affect our energy levels and frequencies. Our level of consciousness and how frequently we tune in, quiet our minds, and receive light and love from the universe also greatly affect our well-being in the world.

pomegranates

The tradition of prayer over food is an interesting one. By focusing thoughts of love and gratitude over the food (energy) we consume to prolong our life and well-being, we increase the energetic vibrations of the food we eat and the water we drink. Plants and animals grown or raised on organic farms have higher energy signatures not only because of the absence of pesticides, but because these living beings are treated with love, dignity, and respect.

Attitudes stemming from love possess high energetic frequencies. These are transmitted to the people, plants, and animals treated with love and dignity. When we eat plants or animals who were abused, mistreated, denied the loving qualities of pure, vital water, attention, care, freedom, a healthy diet, we absorb these low frequency energies which affect our behavior, our cellular structure, and the way we feel about our self.

Hindu blessing over food

It is not necessary to belong to an organized religion to enjoy the benefits of living consciously, with gratitude and love. In the Celestine Prophecy, a spiritual adventure fictional  series of novels, the idea of plants with high energy signatures is advanced. Today, many people are moving to raw food or paleo diets based on this concept. Foods grown locally contain higher energy, as do foods that are not cooked. The amount of light from the sun, transmuted to plants through photosynthesis and in animals in the mitochondrial DNA when consuming plants, diminishes when foods are exposed to heat, microwaves, and lack of gratitude. Sunlight is love, and the frequencies we receive from the sun are encoded into our cellular structure.

children praying

Kirlian photography reveals the auras or electromagnetic fields surrounding people, plants, objects. The energy of our food and water can be augmented through prayer, expressions of love and gratitude. If we choose to grow and care for our own food, that is even better, as the animals and plants respond to our love and attention and a bond is created between the gardener, farmer, and his or her plants and animals.

Love is the supreme ingredient for health and connection to self and the universe. We lose energy when we disconnect from Gaia, our Mother Earth and from our inner self and heart center. Any food and water can be “healed” through gratitude and love.

Water in its natural state has highly curative powers, naturally reducing bacterial and viral content and balancing everything it touches. I have a small device called a “Penergizer” sold by Grander Technologies (from Austria) which contains pure mountain spring water which inventor Johann Grander calls information water. This  water “avatar” is used to re-energize water and liquid beverages. The purity of the untouched water has a very high energy frequency which, when it comes into contact and is stirred into “dead” tap water, communicates its signature to the tap water and revitalizes it, restoring healing properties.

Grander water revitalization

Water can also be revitalized by a vortex, as in nature spring water is always flowing in clockwise and counterclockwise motion, as taught by Austrian forester, natural scientist, and observer of nature, Viktor Schauberger. Now a variety of companies make pipes and water revitalization systems to restore water to its natural state.

The most important thing you can do for your health is to love yourself, to express love and gratitude to your body every day, communicate with your cellular structure, show gratitude for all gifts, events and encounters in your life – whether they may appear to be positive or negative, and to give thanks and communicate directly with the food you eat and the water you drink. An attitude of love and gratitude is the supreme expression of health and well-being, and your energy levels will expand accordingly!

Absorb light and extend your life

leafy bridge

Dearest readers,

Ascension teachers as well as biologists are now pointing to new ways of extending the human lifespan. Currently all of life on Earth is beginning to undergo the transformation from living in a high density low frequency 3-D body in linear time to a conceptual and highly connected existence in a fourth and fifth dimensional body. The esoteric is linking hands with scientific disciplines as we begin to understand that it is the physics of energy, light, and consciousness which create the underlying fabric of reality.

ecorche

You may wonder how this affects you personally. The manner in which we live in our bodies and how we perceive reality affects everything we do. Once humans begin to understand that we are a powerful locus of consciousness and that this awareness is the creative source of the reality in which we live, we will also begin to understand that we must grow up, live in full integrity, and take complete responsibility for every single thought that enters our mind. When we see ourselves as the source of reality, we can no longer look outside of ourselves to blame or shame anyone else. We realize that it is ridiculous to not love our self because we are so powerful.

heart plant

In fact, it is survival and separation consciousness in the 3-D rational world that we think is so modern and technologically advanced which is shortening our life span. The human body is designed to live for a very long time, and unity consciousness makes longevity a reality. And as we transition to the light body, we will begin to live much longer. In this process, we begin to talk to our own bodies, and show gratitude to our bodies for their wondrous daily support. As we evolve, we will restore our intimate connection to our bodies and live in harmony. This transformation into unity consciousness will push us to look inward where we find our connection to our highest self, the remembrance of thousands of lifetimes of history stored in our DNA, and guidance from the universe.

bizarre surgery

 

In survival mode, we see disease as something from the outside, such as microbes, allergies, food, stress that is impacting us. We use chemicals and surgery – foreign substances and actions from without to “heal” the body. When we shift into 4th and 5th dimensional living, time is perceived as a loop and is no longer linear. We are the cause and the effect. We no longer can conceive of using chemicals or surgery, and we are automatically guided to reject and release negative thoughts as soon as they enter the gateways of our mind and heart. We constantly shift and adjust to maintain harmony in our bodies, and eventually, as we refine these skills, we no longer contract diseases of any kind. In fact, the concept of disease is no longer valid because we create our own state of health through our thoughts and actions in a responsible way. We live harmoniously with others and with our environment. As we learn to love and revere our self, our body listens and sighs with relief. Balance has been restored.

longevity

The human, animal, and plant bodies require sunlight for sustenance and longevity, in addition to our personal instructions for cellular division. The mitochondrial DNA responds to the light from within (self-love) and the light or love from without – from the sun. Sunlight is absorbed by plants in the form of chlorophyll. This wondrous substance, when consumed by animals or humans, is the same as absorbing sunlight. In the following article, “Light-harvesting chlorophyll pigments enable mammalian mitochondria to capture photonic energy and produce ATP” by Chen Xu, Junhua Zhang, Doina M. Mihai, Ilyas Washington, we learn that when we consume chlorophyll pigments, our cellular structure is modified and allow us to absorb more light and slow the aging process.

a115_faded-photo-after

While it has been prevailing wisdom that only plants can use sunlight directly for producing energy (photosynthesis), it can not be denied that not only do many animals consume chlorophyll through their diet but that research has been performed showing chlorophyll metabolites “retain the ability to absorb light in the visible spectrum at wavelengths that can penetrate into animal tissues.” (Ferruzzi and Blakeslee, 2007; Ma and Dolphin, 1999).

runner

Here is the abstract from the linked article (see above):

Sunlight is the most abundant energy source on this planet. However, the ability to convert sunlight into biological energy in the form of adenosine-5′-triphosphate (ATP) is thought to be limited to chlorophyll-containing chloroplasts in photosynthetic organisms. Here we show that mammalian mitochondria can also capture light and synthesize ATP when mixed with a light-capturing metabolite of chlorophyll. The same metabolite fed to the worm Caenorhabditis elegans leads to increase in ATP synthesis upon light exposure, along with an increase in life span. We further demonstrate the same potential to convert light into energy exists in mammals, as chlorophyll metabolites accumulate in mice, rats and swine when fed a chlorophyll-rich diet. Results suggest chlorophyll type molecules modulate mitochondrial ATP by catalyzing the reduction of coenzyme Q, a slow step in mitochondrial ATP synthesis. We propose that through consumption of plant chlorophyll pigments, animals, too, are able to derive energy directly from sunlight.

yellow-armed bear

Spending time outdoors in sunlight, eating a chlorophyll-rich diet (spirulina (I used Zhou brand, sustainably grown in California), chlorella, and moringa leaf are some of the most nutrient and chlorophyll dense plants), and communicating with your own cellular structure are key ways to increase your energy levels and lengthen your life span in your current bodily incarnation. According to Lee Carroll, Kryon channel, you can instruct your cells to count only every other day and to refrain from shortening the telomeres. Shortened telomeres at cell division amplify the aging process. Reversing the aging process requires that the telomeres remain intact at cell division.

A telomere is a region of repetitive nucleotide sequences at each end of a chromosome, which protects the end of the chromosome from deterioration or from fusion with neighboring chromosomes. Its name is derived from the Greek nouns telos (τέλος) “end” and merοs (μέρος, root: μερ-) “part”.

seedlings

As you learn to love yourself, you will speed up your release of all negativity, limiting beliefs, shame, blaming, victim mentality, as well as relics of codependency. As you move into your fifth dimensional body, integrity will be your first instinct. It will become easier to self-regulate and to feel compassion for yourself and all other human beings. You will begin to realize that we are all one family. You will suddenly understand that the Earth is alive and conscious.

temperate rainforest

You cannot extend your life if your life is not devoted to service to all of humanity, to Gaia and to all of the inhabitants on this planet and beyond. Long life is a gift granted to those who love self and others, to those who remember the power of the human heart. As we leave the iron age where humans, animals, plants all suffered greatly and lived shortened, harsh existences, we can breathe a sigh of relief as we begin to see the light and love ourselves once again.

How can we live harmlessly?

solar-field

Dearest readers,

Before our presidential elections in 2016, I was collecting signatures to help get the Green Party’s Jill Stein on the ballot in the State of Georgia. Among the people I approached for the petition was a young organic farmer at a local outdoor market. As we discussed farming, life, philosophy, and a variety of fascinating topics, this sensitive young man told me that while many idealize farming and rural life, in reality, farming is all about killing living beings. He seemed genuinely distressed, for while he was dedicated to producing quality food for humans, his practice destroys the lives of insects, plants, and small animals despite his best intentions.

compassion

Is it possible to live harmlessly? And if not, what intention can we set as human beings to live compassionately, loving and honoring self and all of Earth, her creatures, plants, trees, soil, rocks? What can we do in our daily lives to preserve and honor life? How can we change our habits and the way we think and act to move towards harmlessness?

trees-are-social-beings

My heart is deeply connected to Gaia, and each day I communicate empathically with small mammals, birds, trees, clumps of moss. On my way home from work today, I saw with horror that two beautiful live trees had been uprooted at a construction site where they had previously been cordoned off. Believing the builders had intentionally preserved the stand of old trees, and I cried as I sat at the stop light, sending my loving thoughts and prayers to Mother Earth for the loss of these beautiful beings.

empathy-and-understanding

The vegan and vegetarian movements are an increasingly heeded response to the call for heightened consciousness about the beauty, intelligence, and dignity of farm animals. Many people are not aware of the intense suffering of farm animals. How many know that calves are systematically removed from their mothers on dairy farms, and that these calves are often brutally murdered. The cows are constantly impregnated so that they continue to give milk, and their babies are taken away from them each time. At the end of the cow’s useful life, she is slaughtered.

human-slavery

If we project this suffering onto a human mother, we can easily imagine the soul-crushing distress that these animals must experience. How would we feel about human beings treated in this manner? Human slavery does exist, and over twenty seven million human beings, including young children, suffer the unspeakable cruelty of forced prostitution, pedophilia, slavery, and organ harvesting. Billions of farm animals today live as slaves, treated as inanimate objects. The level of consciousness today that supports human and animal slavery is indeed very low.

child-farmworkers

Most people also don’t give much thought to human farm workers who are more often than not exploited, underpaid, exposed to harmful chemicals, with long working hours and no benefits. Much produce is picked by children who don’t have the opportunity to go to school. The vegan and vegetarian lifestyles are, alas, far from harmless.

empathy

I believe that young children instinctively understand, love, and honor all animals. If adults model compassionate behavior to children and if it were to become unthinkable to eat any animals, this dietary standard could quickly shift. Also, as human consciousness rises and the energetic frequency of human thought and DNA shift, our bodies become less dense. The light body flourishes on a lighter diet. It is going to become easier to eliminate meat from our diets.

fruits-and-veg

 

As we become more evolved spiritually, our bodies follow suit. As human evolution progresses, humanity will eventually collectively adapt to a new cellular structure and eat less and less. At some point, our bodies will need only light and perhaps water to thrive. When we transform from humans to quantum, multi-dimensional light beings, we will be able to live harmlessly. Until then, we can strive to live consciously and compassionately.

miraclemyth

Today, even if we make the choice to avoid consuming animals or at least to decrease consumption or choose only to eat animals who were raised with love, respect, and dignity, we are still not living harmlessly. We are living consciously, but not harmlessly. Plant life is conscious. Our planet is conscious. Everything we do creates harm. When we pull up weeds, mow our lawn, eat vegetables, we are creating harm. Life as we know it in our current human form cannot be sustained without creating some harm. However, plants and animals raised with love, care, dignity, and respect contain a higher energy frequency than plants or animals raised on industrial or feedlot farms. Our energetic vibrations affect everyone we touch.

farmanimalbanner

Nature shows us this. Animals who are carnivores eat other animals, but they are not greedy. They never take more than they need to live. And when they die, they too are either eaten or return to the soil. When we grow plants with conscious intent and love, and when we give gratitude and thanks for the lives sacrificed that we may live, we move to a place of love. Gratitude is a necessary complement to consciousness. This is the reason humans pray over food. We are all part of nature.

organic-garden

Because humanity has for centuries avoided being part of Nature’s food chain, we have lost sight of our place in nature. By consciously working to release conditioning, negativity, fear, judgment of self and others, shame, lack or poverty consciousness, greed, and other mental and physical blockages that keep our energy levels, thoughts, and behaviors base and low, we can make room for more light and love in our lives each day.

love-is-the-bridge

 

The most important and most misunderstood aspect of love and unity consciousness is self-love. Without self-love, we all remain in the dark. God never judges us, but we human beings never cease to judge ourselves and one another. Until we are able to release all of this negativity, the light and love which are already inside of us cannot be expressed. Self-love is mastery. When we master self-love, we become beings of light. This is how we were designed, and the reality we will one day create collectively as light beings is known as “heaven on Earth”.

heaven-on-earth-is-a-choice-you-must-make-not-a-place-you-must-find

Today, we all have a unique opportunity to open up to the light and love that is inside of our hearts. We are being supported by the Universe, by the sun, and by the inhabitants of our galaxy, as well as by Gaia. The human being never stops evolving. We are all at different places in our personal evolution. We can all choose to look into our own hearts and find love for self, our fellow human beings, and for all of the living creatures on Earth, as well as for our home planet. Just knowing that everything we perceive is an expression of consciousness and sentient energy is a great start. Reality is love. We create reality using our hearts. It is time to start living responsibly and consciously. Living harmlessly starts here.

 

Daimons and demons: mediators between the earthly and the divine

sophia

Hello dear readers,

In the ancient world, people actively maintained relationships with ancestors, animal spirits, and cosmic entities. The human imagination played an active role in communicating with the natural world. At some point, humanity was diverted from our connection to nature. I believe that when Christianity was established as a religion, in a diversion from the original teachings of Jesus, the church as well as certain political and economic forces made a concerted effort to demonize nature, the feminine, and humanity’s connection to our personal higher self.

pompeii-good-spirit

Shamanistic healer and psychotherapist Dr. Steven Farmer explains that the daimon, a sort of genius and animal spirit that was a revered protector in many societies around the world, was transformed into a feared “demon”. The natural world and all that was earthly or below ground was transformed into a shadow arena, relegated and downgraded to being the realm of only dark energies: demons and the devil.

demon

Suddenly only the cosmic arena, the male pole of spirituality, was considered a source of good, light, and salvation. Thus, heaven became relegated to the sky. The spiritual became distant and separate from our bodies and the world we live in every day. And nature, women, the feminine, the animal and plant kingdom and those who were versed in the healing arts of plants, animals, and the imagination became evil and were feared.

repression-of-the-feminine

Women, who had once been the highest priestesses and sources of great wisdom were suddenly considered inferior, with smaller brains and lesser abilities than men. Nature and the bowels of the earth became the domain of hell, torture, dreaded punishments. Sexuality and the body, which came from the Earth, were included in this litany of evil. Man and woman were officially divorced from their own bodies, their own intuition, direct connection to the personal higher self, and from a consciously loving and connected relationship with our planet and with nature.

ancient-egyptian-daimon

In fact, the daimon (Greek: in-dwelling spirit), of which spiritual writer, psychotherapist, and historian James Hillman speaks in his wonderful book, The Soul’s Code: In Search of Character and Calling, is the voice of our higher self. As we live in our temporal earthly bodies on this planet, we are always, if we so choose, connected to our higher self through our intuition and our imagination. The pineal gland in the brain, also known as the third eye, is the gateway to our higher self. Images of the pineal are ever-present in ancient art, architecture, and sculpture. The winged snake symbolism refers to the connection of the earthly to the cosmic realms. Mystics believe we all have many spirit guides, ancestors, and other wise and benevolent sources of energy who accompany us along our path. Because we are born onto this planet with free will, they will not interfere with our lives unless we call upon them for help.

pineal-gland-in-art

Like the daimon, Earth herself is alive and seeks to communicate with us. Shamanic wisdom teaches that there are three worlds: the lower world, which is located inside the earth – under the ground; the middle world, which is where we live; and the upper world, which would be the cosmos or heavenly domain. The shaman is trained to navigate all of these worlds. He or she has special guides or helpers which are often in the form of animals. These spirit or power animals would have been called daimons (Greece) or geniuses (Rome) in the ancient world.

ancient-roman-pineal

By grounding ourselves in our bodies and connecting to our planet Earth, it becomes easy to recognize that all of creation is one family. When we become aware that the lower realms are just as sacred as the middle and higher realms, we gain increased wisdom and balance. Our current society is in chaos. For too long certain factions in our society have suppressed necessary knowledge about ourselves and our reality from us.

demons-genie

The human being is a very powerful creator. Once we reopen our hearts, imaginations, and balance our minds, bodies, souls, and spirits, we will intuitively  embrace and revere the feminine once again. We will understand that the sacred feminine is equally important to the sacred masculine, and humanity will become more cooperative and compassionate. It is my hope that by restoring credibility to intuition, emotion, and to the feminine, our health will improve, and our societies will become more peaceful.

moose

The feminine point of view is all encompassing, nurturing, and intuitive. The female brain uses both lobes and makes connections between apparently unrelated ideas, thoughts, feelings. The creative conceptual mind is necessary for the advancement of technology, social structure, and for the health of our planet. Knowing that all people, plants, animals, and the planet herself are interdependent is so important. People who are religious often talk about going to heaven. Do they know that home is inside of each of us? We are here on Earth to learn to love self and one another. This is true purpose of life: love and consciousness. Our insight is a dear friend, not a demon of whom we should be afraid. By demonizing our inner wisdom and our higher self, we are cut off from our own power and our own ability to heal our own bodies, hearts, and spirits.

sacred-feminine

I think it’s time to rehabilitate the daimon and take back our power to see within and beyond the veil.

Homeopathy: practicing medicine as an art

banner3

Hello dear readers,

In today’s world, most of us accept medicine as a science. Conventional medicine today divides the body into infinitely small and separate systems, and our problems are treated as dysfunctions of a system, requiring repair much like a broken machine. We are given foreign substances as treatment, but our emotional suffering is generally considered irrelevant and goes unheard and unnoticed.

itw_albertclaude_quemoun_martine_gardenal-320x180

We no longer associate the medical profession as an artful, holistic practice requiring insight and even wisdom. This is changing, and French homeopathic practitioner and doctor of sports medicine for France’s national soccer team, Martine Gardenal, says she prefers the term “médecine de vie” or life medicine to alternative medicine. She explains that the holistic process of healing the human being using living materials from plants, animals, and minerals is at the foundation of homeopathy, which treats like with like. The idea being that a substance which might make people who are healthy become sick or out of balance might allow those who are ill to become well.

homeopathy-burlington

Much like a vaccine, the basic principle behind homeopathic medicine is to figure out what is causing harm or disharmony within a person. Once the source of harm is found, which is often described as an unspoken word or an unconscious form of suffering which has translated to the body, the doctor finds an equivalent to this suffering in a natural substance. Based on the practitioner’s knowledge of the human body and the symbolic and chemical composition of pollutants, poisons, venom, and other noxious substances, a treatment is designed for that particular patient’s illness. The patient is then “inoculated” with this substance in a highly diluted form. In the French language, the word for “words” – “mots” sounds exactly the same as the plural form of the word for suffering, or “maux”.

The diagnostic process is interesting. The practitioner must figure out by questioning the patient about his or her personal as well as family life. Unresolved issues and pain caused or experienced by previous generations can spark disease in a person living today. The emotional body and cellular structure of the human being are extremely sensitive and subtle. To become an effective practitioner of homeopathy requires a great understanding of human nature, physiology, biology, natural sciences, psychology, wisdom, and compassion. The homeopathic doctor is almost a detective, carefully questioning the patient and analyzing each symptom.

homeopathy

Homeopathy was invented around 1796 by Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), born in the German town of Meissen, then Saxony. Hahnemann was a brilliant intellectual, writer, and tireless researcher. Convinced that the medicine of his time, devoted to dulling symptoms rather than curing diseases was not only a waste of time but also dangerous, Hahnemann spent years translating medical texts from all over the world. He stopped practicing medicine for many years, and he moved frequently with his family. His curious mind and scientific spirit caused him to put his entire family to work collecting poisonous plants, venomous insects, and other toxins, once he hypothesized that a very small dose of what would generally be considered a poison could possibly definitively cure a disease.

Hahnemann had sought to develop a medical system that relied solely on single drugs in harmless doses and based upon pure observation, empiricism and experiment. He sought to “do away with the blind chimney sweeper’s methods of dulling symptoms,” [Gumpert, 99] then so much in vogue. He fought “with redoubled energy for the purity of medicine. He struck deadly blows at three points: first, he believed that the doctor should prepare his own medicines; second, he advocated ever more definitely the administration of small doses; and, third, he was a most passionate opponent of mixed doses that contained a large number of ingredients.” [Gumpert, 96]

Working with a compounding pharmacist in his own home during the 8 years he spent in Paris, France, Hahnemann experimented with dosages and substances for various afflictions, eventually diluting the substances to a degree where only an infinitely small portion of the original substance remained. The medications were then activated by vigorous shaking. The shaking would cause the identity of the substance to be communicated to the remainder of the carrier (water, oil, sugar, or alcohol). In the theory of the memory of water developed by French researchers Jacques Benveniste and more recently Luc Montaigner as well as Japanese naturopath Masaru Emoto, the water retains an electromagnetic signal of the original medicine or substance that was diluted . As you can see, homeopathy is a form of quantum medicine, which relies on consciousness and electromagnetic fields. Water is a carrier of consciousness, acting much like a liquid crystal in a computer.

Hahnemann carefully documented case histories, treatment plans, and various dilutions and experiments. These documents can still be read and studied today. The art of homeopathy continues to develop and is being used to treat ordinary ailments as well as complex diseases such as autoimmune disorders. Many believe that homeopathy is a pseudo-science, or else that it is only effective for minor troubles such as cuts, bruises, or sore throats. But experienced practitioners deny this claim. The problem being that homeopathy cannot be evaluated according to conventional medical standards. For example, double blind studies cannot be conducted because of the individualized nature of the treatments.

What works for one person may not work for another. In each case, the practitioner carefully listens to the person’s symptoms, expression of feelings, and analyzes family dynamics and family history. If a person self-treats, the full effect of the treatment may not work, because the wisdom and the intent of the practitioner participate in the healing process of the patient. Homeopathy is not about chemistry; it is based on physics. Physics and energy medicine will most likely emerge as powerful healing technology, possibly soon replacing the chemistry based drugs upon which we now rely.

In spite of the continued debate regarding the validity of homeopathy, about 56% of French people trust in it and use it regularly. It is much easier to find homeopathic practitioners and products in France than it is in the United States to date, but prejudice against the profession and its products is deep-rooted even in Europe, where the practice originated.

As humanity moves closer to a global shift into higher consciousness, I predict an expansion of the healing arts and an increased respect for holistic practices and wisdom in medicine. As human knowledge of quantum physics, entanglement, the powerful effects of human consciousness on the creation of reality expand, we will see patients becoming increasingly self-aware, responsible, and empowered in their own healing process.

The mapping of the human genome indicates that we each have 23 pairs of chromosomes. Esoteric teachers such as the channeled magnetic master Kryon have revealed that the Universe is built on a base of 12, and that all mathematics of the universe and in nature follow this pattern. He explains that there is a 24th pair of chromosomes in the human genome remaining to be discovered, and that the hidden pair is quantum. According to Kryon, when we discover the missing laws of physics  – the 5th and 6th laws involving strong and weak inter-dimensional forces, we will have at hand new keys for understanding reality and for self-healing.

quantum-healing

Homeopathy is a bridge leading towards quantum healing, which requires on the part of healer and healed pure intent and discarding of negative energies and blockages. The intuitive human being knows how to remove the blockages which prevent the human body from living unhindered in the quantum or unified field. This is the definition of disease – living outside of harmony. Current understanding of consciousness takes into account that the consciousness of the scientific observer has an effect on the outcome of experiments. We will soon begin to understand how the intent of the medical practitioner as well as the intent and attitude of the patient inform the healing experience. The placebo effect does play a role in homeopathy and is a recognized though not yet understood process. Placebos as well as homeopathic treatments are effective for humans as well as animals, and the consciousness of intent may well play a key role in the success of these treatments.

Homeopathic medicine requires a sensitive and compassionate ear. A qualified practitioner is a person who is able to sense and understand the suffering and blockages which prevent a person from healing herself. By removing the blocks, the human being is freed, and the body restores itself to its natural state – harmony. This is the new medicine.

What our forests can teach us about building wiser human societies

 

8404634227_246cd48a9a_b

Dear readers,

I’ve been waiting with much anticipation to get my library copy to read “The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate”, by German forest ranger, Peter Wohlleben. And just the other day, NPR radio’s TED Radio Hour broadcast Canadian ecologist Susan Simard’s TED Talk, How Trees Talk to Each Other.

While I was already aware of the vast underground cooperative networks between fungi and tree roots, what I learned from Susan Simard’s talk is that trees cooperate with one another, and that certain trees, called Mother Trees or Hubs, are the matriarchs or elders of the forest. Other younger trees depend on these older, more experienced trees to flourish. Different varieties of trees share nutrients because they have different needs at varying times of the year. Using this Internet like web of mycelium (fungi), the tree roots are like nerve endings in the brain – the forest being a sort of living intelligent organism which is always changing. It seems as if the trees truly care about the well-being of all other trees, even those who are of different species, though trees do recognize and give preferential treatment to their own seedlings.

Simard explains that when a mother or hub tree is cut down, the entire forest must take stock and reorganize around the loss. If too many hub trees are destroyed or if the diversity of the forest is disturbed too extensively, it becomes much more difficult for the forest to recover. The trees, seedlings, underbrush are in constant communication. They share news of threats and windfalls, and when a tree is about to die, it distributes its wealth of nutrients to its neighbors, as well as its accumulated knowledge.

So what can our societies learn from the forest? Animal societies often have matriarchal figures – elders who bring cohesion and coherence to the group. Among such animals, and there are many others, are orcas, wolves, and elephants. If a matriarch is unexpectedly killed, the animal group often falls into chaos.

In traditional human societies, this type of system of organization is also common. We have lost wisdom from our human societies by focusing too much on male, rational side of the mind, and by intentionally and often savagely suppressing the feminine characteristics of nurturing, cooperation, compassion, and intuition. As humanity and human nature evolve, rising to a higher level of consciousness, we are beginning to see the paradigm shift at work in human societies.

I believe we will soon see evidence of more cooperative social systems at work. Our new societies will organize around wisdom of elders, both male and female. Diplomacy and exchange will be valued over egocentric competition or winning at all costs. Like the trees of the forests, a win-win philosophy will prime.

The constant web of communication which we now enjoy with the Internet will become an intuitive interactive web, once humans begin to discover the power of human consciousness. The old paradigm has had our creative powers restrained in a passive and hierarchical system in which only certain privileged elites have enjoyed access to power and wealth and where class systems were intentionally designed to divide and control people. This has made it difficult to create understanding and unity between different social and ethnic groups. This is the system which is now in deconstruction.

In the intuitive web, the human being understands that the creative source and force is within each of us. By connecting to this invisible web which is the unifying field or matrix with a high level of awareness over our thoughts and feelings, we create outcomes through synchronous thought and action. Because the quantum field is unified by a bias for harmony and love, these outcomes benefit all people, animals, and the planet. We are on the verge of discovering how the underpinning of the physics of the universe is the energy of love. What was once esoteric or spiritual knowledge is about to enter the field of science. And it is by marrying science and technology to feminine wisdom that we will reach new heights in medicine, communications, travel, energy systems that have never before been possible in human history.

It is already possible to access this system which religions may call a state of grace or illumination. By mastering your own thoughts and intentions and releasing all negativity, you can eliminate all separation from the unified field. In this way, you gain mastery over your individual consciousness as you connect to the matrix, and your thoughts create the reality you experience. Self-love is a prerequisite for mastery.

What was once considered only available to highly spiritually evolved beings will increasingly become part of the normal way of perceiving and living on our planet. We will become more conceptual and intuitive, as well as cooperative…just like the trees in the forest, who anticipate one another’s needs. The forest is a unified field of being, and each tree plays a cooperative role. Everyone’s needs are met, and the whole being of the forest is an expression of harmony. In the new human societies, as an increasing number of humans finds joy and inner peace, harmony will also become characteristic of human societies.

Pineal (a poem)

69c473928a9c24b5b4c014b4d040de52

In the bedrock of soft ooze

sprout the rods and cones of a ladder to Jacob’s dream

spruced upwards

gazing inwards

the hallucination of a dream left behind for too long

the yearning of a sunken volcano

a sisterhood of souls abandoned

yearning for the connection

sailing towards the energetics of a wise and warm embrace.

I am told humanity has folded its legs

tucked its head

and wound itself into the embrace of a temporary womb.

the pine cone falls from a lofty place

dropping swirling shedding

layers of forgotten dreams

shattering the brutal murder from the shards of history’s mind wipe

she lies in a tomb shrouded in moss and cobwebs

vines entangle the stone, hair, bone, twig, and flower

enwised

a new being unfolds

tentatively stretches a sticky limb

through a film once designed to hold and protect

she is reborn

looking inward

to revise the heart of humanity

 

An Equation of love

sacredear curled-fern-frond

Dear readers,

According to Len Horowitz in a fascinating interview titled The Secrets of Vibration, plants receive the life and love-giving energies of the sun through energetic sound vibrations or frequencies. In the images above, to the left, you see a diagram of the inner ear and how it absorbs the various sound frequencies. To the right, is an image of a curled fern leaf, whose structure is remarkably similar to that of the human inner ear. Basically, sound creates light, and the plant listens to and transforms sound frequencies of light for our benefit. The light  of the sun, which, in conjunction with the presence of water, allows for all life on our planet, is generated through sound. Plants absorb, as we do, those life giving frequencies, transforming them using the greenish-yellow pigment we call chlorophyll, to translate those frequencies of love into the air we breathe.

As we breathe, we absorb the essential frequencies of love which harmonize our cells with the universe. In the video referenced above, which you can listen to on YouTube by clicking on the link in the first paragraph, Len Horowitz explains that the original harmonic scales used in music have tremendous creative power. He believes that we have deviated as a culture away from the harmonic frequencies towards a more dissonant scale tuned to 440Hz. By being constantly bathed in dissonance, entropy prevails in our societies, hindering humans from generating more harmonious and cooperative behaviors.

If we surround ourselves with harmonizing frequencies, such as 528 Hz, and focus our thoughts on love, centering ourselves in our hearts, we will find ourselves on the same frequency with plants, animals, nature. There is much evidence that harmonious energetic frequencies allow plants, animals, humans to thrive rather than merely survive. When we talk lovingly to our plants and surround them with attention and beautiful music, they become luxuriant and grow more quickly. When our hearts are compassionate and are emitting frequencies on the original harmonic scale, even wild animals are no longer afraid of us.

In the Universe, everything is energy. Everything is interconnected. The air we breathe, the water we drink…these are bridges between beings – the fabric we share. Our thoughts, feelings, and energetic frequencies translate to the structures in the air and water, which are then shared with other people, plants, and animals. As we grow in conscious awareness, we can actively choose to plant positive, loving thoughts in our minds and hearts. These thoughts are activated in our cells and bodily fluids. The air we breathe out is transformed and contains the healing frequency of our loving thoughts. Water absorbs the frequency of our thoughts and of everything with which it comes into contact. We have the power to purify water, to organize water into a more loving, healing, harmonic crystalline structure which is beneficial for all life: human, animal, plant, and that of the planet itself.

Like plants and trees, which are vectors of the consciousness of the planet, we have the power to heal the Earth, who is here to support us in every way. When we begin to return the amazing love to Earth that she constantly offers us, we will see our lives transformed. Even trees which have been struck by lightning should be allowed to remain standing, according to Native American wisdom keepers. The dead tree remains a lightning rod, absorbing energy from the lightning strike. This energy is absorbed into the Earth. We, as human beings, like the trees, are antennae. We receive energy from the planet and from the sun, and the choices we make with our consciousness allow us to create harmony or dissonance on Earth.
