The Mass Wake Up – the five stages of awakening

(NaturalNews) We are all witnessing a mass awakening sweeping across the planet. Over just the last several weeks, millions of people have newly awakened to all the following astonishing truths they never would have believed just a year ago:

• The EPA knowingly allows children all across America to drink lead-poisoned water, covering up all the evidence instead of alerting the public.

• The drug companies are in the business of “harvesting” profits from human disease, not saving lives or helping humanity. Continue reading

Why Sovereignty is good for our health, and the health of nations

By Annie Dieu-Le-Veut

I published my book about the metaphysical roots of Sovereignty nearly a year ago, and it’s sold hundreds of copies since. But I didn’t know then how important – and how soon – the subject of Sovereignty would become from the political standpoint, which is how it manifests in the world.

If you’ve read this book, Reclaiming Sovereignty: Shamanic Earth Magic, you’ll know that it’s about the interdimensional activity of shamans which create the underpinnings in the Underworld of what manifests on the world stage. It’s about the ultimate act of alchemical creation – this was the purpose of the Alchemical Marriage within the ancient sex rites for which we have historical and mythological evidence going back thousands of years.

Is it more spiritual to be left-wing or right-wing?

Annie Dieu-Le-Veut

Any shaman reading that title will have a good chuckle to themselves, no doubt, because they will know that the spirits of the shaman are neither – they are the whole big bird. But it is a subject that needs addressing because there are those in politics who are like barkers and snakeskin oil salesmen in a fairground, and are trying to bang the drum for their own corrupted versions of spirituality, or of doing ‘what’s right’, in order to promote their own political campaigns.

There are many in the electorate who don’t know any better and so believe what they say – and so I think that if these groups get their way, it will not only adversely affect our health and wellbeing personally, but also the health of our nations. This is because the absence of dis-ease is intrinsically linked to the truth, which comes from true spirituality. Continue reading

Using planetary gemstones for migraine relief

Anyone who has suffered from a migraine will know what a terrible affliction it can be. The pain and discomfort can consume you to such an extent that you are often left with no choice but to shut yourself away and sleep, hoping that it heals.

People who have migraines often report heightened sensitivity even to the least bit of light and sound, and nothing but sleeping helps. Of course, there are strong drugs available to alleviate the pain, but allopathic medication often has subtle side effects.With the intensity of the pain, combined with the duties you cannot excuse yourself from, what choice does that leave you with? Finding something that will give you some much needed quick relief is often the favored option. But what is the reason for these unending bouts of headaches? Planetary gem therapy can give you the answer.

20 sources of physical pain with their emotional cause

By Josh Richardson

Pain is first energy, second perception, and third physical manifestation. There is no other source of pain but energetic. Physical presentation is always secondary. Every single origin of pain in our bodies can be traced back to a specific emotional state which functions to warn us that there is still work to be done in areas of our lives for which we have yet to integrate lessons. Once we integrate those lessons, the pain disappears.  Continue reading

The Real Truth About Essential Oils That Nobody Talks About


By Anya V

Despite the fact that thousands of people report successful use of essential oils to help treat various health ailments, mainstream medical community tries to dismiss their claims.  Essential oils are everywhere; if you follow any blogs, you will find them in DIY, survival, natural health, and mommy blogs. So do essential oils really work, or are they just expensive fragrant quackery? Continue reading

By Ishtar Babilu Dingir

If you dig deep enough, underneath all the plastic hype, bling and glitz, Yuletide is actually a real and very potent time of year for Earth magic, as the fiery arrow of Sagittarius flies towards the Bull of fertility, and the Horned One of Capricorn springs into action at the Birth of the Radiant Child on the Winter Solstice.

In this article, I explain how you can join in the magic too, wherever you are, by turning yourself into a living and breathing advent calendar!

Five Golden Rules for Shamanic Healing

By Ishtar Babilu Dingir

I’m not really one who goes in much for shamanic healing. I’ve noticed that if you give someone healing, they tend to need it again a few months later. That might be good for building a client base … but that’s not really what I’m about. My approach is more along the lines of ‘if you give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day, but if you give him a fishing rod and teach him how to fish, he’ll eat for the rest of his life.’ Except in my case, I give him the cannery too.

How the shaman uses alchemy to heal pain

By Annie Dieu-Le-Veut

I explain in my book Reclaiming Sovereignty: Shamanic Earth Marriage, about how alchemical transformation is used to achieve the Divine Marriage. But as everyone knows who hasn’t been totally brainwashed by modern day Rom Coms, the apple blossom and confetti wedding between the bride and groom is just the beginning of an alchemical process of self development, and not an end in itself.

How shamans reweave and repurpose pain

By Annie Dieu-Le-Veut

Most of us carry around unresolved emotional pain and that translates, particularly later in life, to physical pain because our manifest sheath of our multi-layered, inter-dimensional mind-body continuum can no longer flow or dance with the rivers of energies. The rivers become dammed up and stagnant, and this leads to stiffness, particularly stiffness of the joints – hips, knees, shoulders. Continue reading

Imagination – the power beyond mind control

By Jon Rappoport

All thought is not the same. There is random static. There is repetitious and circular rumination. There is thought devoted to solving a problem or analyzing a situation. There is thought that occurs when one is creating something that never existed before. To blithely say that ‘externally inserted’ mind control can replace all levels of thinking without a person being aware of what is going on is foolish.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport) Continue reading

Getting through the Dark Night of the Soul in one piece

by Ishtar Babilu Dingir

It seems to me that a lot of us are going through the mill right now. The stuff that hits the fan is flying all over the place and so that it can be difficult, at times, to see the way through. Sometimes, it feels like whatever we do goes wrong. Sometimes, we feel just like curling up in a tiny ball and hiding in the corner until this – whatever it is! – is all over.

If this is you, don’t worry…. you’re not alone.  Please don’t stress if you think you’re making a mess of all this, either, just because all your dirty underwear is all over the floor where everyone can see it. Alchemically speaking, that’s progress! It’s known as the putrefaction stage of the alchemical process. It’s also known as the Dark Night of the Soul.

So just remember, it’s always darkest before the dawn. Hold on to your hat, and read on for some esoteric, shamanic techniques to help you get through it.

Alongside all that nasty, smelly putrefying stuff, you may also feel that your kundalini serpent energy is rising. This may seem strange to you – after all, isn’t progress in spirituality all about becoming full of light, joy and goodness? Well, no, not always, and particularly not if you’re following the alchemical journey.

The putrefaction process leads to what some alchemists call The Peacock’s Tail, because of the explosion of psychedelic colours that can be seen via the pineal gland or the third eye. How is this activated? By the rising of the kundalini. And so you may be feeling signs and symptoms around the sacral area to indicate such stirrings, like a sort of irritation, a shifting movement, sometimes a sort of twitching. If this is you, too, again please don’t worry. It’s all part of the shift.

When the serpents rise, it will happen gently, when the time is right. The process can’t be forced anyway. It’s on the clock of your destiny and the serpents will know when it’s time to begin their dance. When it happens that way, organically and naturally, there’s no chance of burn-out or all the other problems people tend to get when they force the serpents up before their time. It’s just a very beautiful and ecstatic experience.

However, because several people have contacted me about these issues, I just want to give you a couple of extracts from my book, The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar, which will help to guide you through all this.

If you haven’t yet read it, The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar is about how our ancestors, and also how we too today, can use the alchemical fire of sex to raise the energetic serpents up the body to the ‘chalice’ of the hypothalamus where they release dia-magnetic red and white drops of nectars on to the pineal gland, and this ignites the Uraeus which activates the higher brain centres.

It is the ultimate wake up call – the red pill of the Matrix – which reconnects us to our god and goddess selves.

 The Dance of the Two Serpents

Kundalini Rising pic

First, I’ll explain what the kundalini rising means and how it works, so that if yours starts rising, you’ll know what’s going on and not panic.

So let’s get started.

Kundalini is an Indian term for a snake-like form of esoteric energy that lays coiled at the base of the spine. But in the ancient Egyptian sex rites, the kundalini was known as the djed.

Raising the Djed

There is a thoroughly gorgeously, nectarfully, utterly blissful state of shamanic sexual ecstasy which is achieved by the raising of what the Egyptians called the djed, which is energy coiled at the base of the spine.

Djed means ‘that which stays erect’ and it is the real meaning of all the so-called phallic obelisks. They’re not actually representing the erect phallus, but an erect energy which runs up the centre of the body in the form of sekhem (life force or chi) when these magical magnetics are aroused.

As discussed in previous chapters, obelisks come from the teachings of the Serpent Cults, and I believe that the sex magic which you can learn from my book was its core teaching. We also saw the importance of this state of erection in metaphor on the Sumerian tavern engravings of Dumuzi, who stands completely erect, as if in seizure, while in copulation with Inanna.

The purpose of raising the Djed is to accumulate enough of this energy, which is known as sekhem, alchemically, so that it can be sent up through the pathway of the chakras and into the head centres.

There are two forms that this energy takes and so once you start to feel it ascending, you will need to visualise them as two serpents. They were known to the ancient Indians in their tantric practices as Ida and Pingala. But to the Egyptians they were the Gold Solar Serpent and the Black Lunar Serpent and they are alchemical opposites with different paths through the alchemical container of the body. When they meet, the Marriage of the Sun and the Moon takes place and this is when there is a possibility of immense energy.

When the two serpents reach the crown, they become known as the Uraeus, which anoints the higher brain centres and leads to increased intelligence.

The Gold Solar Serpent ascends up a line which begins at the base of the spine and goes up into the cranium. The Black Lunar Serpent follows the secondary pathway, which extends from the perineum to the crown.

As they ascend, they crisscross one another to form nodes at each chakra, and magnetically energise them, as they go. The chakras spark into life as each one is touched in this alchemical weaving dance. In this way, with the interwoven pattern, the two serpents create what’s called the Central Column or Central Pillar. This spiralling and interweaving of the Gold Solar Serpent and Black Lunar Serpent continues all the way up the body, as shown in Figures 5 and 6 below.

Eventually the two serpents reach the crown and then the hypothalamus, which is visualised as a Chalice. The Black Lunar Serpent rests its head on the left hand side of the rim of the Chalice, and the Gold Solar Serpent rests its head on the right hand side.

The Ambrosia of the Gods

At the same time, what feels like a ball of fire starts to grow in the solar plexus region, and after a while, it begins to rise up through the body. It eventually reaches the head and then it passes through the centre of the Chalice between the two serpents and on up into the crown of the head.

From here, a remarkable phenomena occurs which I believe is the true meaning of all the red and white imagery seen in sacred art, the blood and water of the crucifixion, or Joseph of Arimathea’s cruet, and to me it is the true Holy Grael.

From the left side of the Chalice, an energy descends that is liquid in nature. These are known as the Red Serpentine Drops. From the right, another liquid energy begins to descend. These are known as the White Serpentine Drops. Both drops descend into the Holy Grael cup or Chalice of the hypothalamus and bathe the pineal gland.

Now I’m sure that, if you’re the sort of person who regularly reads articles like this one, you won’t need any further information about how the pineal gland is also known as the third eye because it gazes into other dimensions. And you’re almost certainly aware that the pineal gland looks like a small pine cone, from which its name was derived, and that there are ancient stone carvings of Assyrian gods carrying pine cones along with their handbags, and that even the Pope has a huge garden ornament of a pine cone, next to which sits an empty sarcophagus, which says it all really.

So I won’t mention anything about all that…especially as we’re getting to vital bit:

From this stage, if the conditions are right, the woman may be able to open her Magnetic Floor, and then the loving couple will experience a sweet ecstasy otherwise unachievable by any other means on this Earth. This is because all their magnetic fields are activated and the Ka body is fed with the sweetest honey nourishment from the Living Waters.

This sweetness can sometimes be tasted at the back of the throat. It was known as ‘amrit’ in the Vedas, and the Egyptians called it the Spring Waters. The Greeks called it the ‘ambrosia of the gods’. The Hebrews called it the Land of Milk and Honey. Sometimes, when you are tasting the Living Waters, you can see light in your head. If you focus on this light, it leads to even more ecstasy.

Shamans have a saying: “Energy flows where attention goes.” So as soon as you taste this sweetness, and experience this ecstasy, the trick is not to lose it and get spaced out, but shift your awareness to your Ka body. By doing so, the honeyed and dripping nectar of the ecstasy, or ‘food’, can flow into the Ka body.

So now you know what bliss is in store for you, hopefully you’ll be better able to relax into this process if it begins to happen to you.

Some of this article is extracted from Part II of The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar. In this book, you’ll find the complete how-to guide for all the shamanic sex exercises, and also learn more about their context alchemically and shamanically.
