WITNESSING TREE SPIRITS  IN ORDINARY REALITY   

Our property on the Bay of Quinte is home to several species of native trees. In one area we call the glen, we’ve been witnessing an ongoing onslaught by invasive insects. Over a period of three to four years we watched helplessly as the ash trees slowly lost their battles to the Ash Borer Beetle. It bores pencil holes into the bark, then tunnels under it, robbing the trees of vital sap. Simultaneous attacks by tent caterpillars forced the trees to leaf out twice in the same season depleting their reserves.

The first tree to come down was a 60 foot specimen that was still mostly alive when we felled it. It came down with a heavy thud that shook the little glen, and sent my son and me running for cover.  We bucked the branches and left the trunk for another day.

Three nights later I awoke around 4:30 AM for a bathroom visit, and became wide awake afterwards. Since it was a mild October night, I put on my bathrobe and slippers in the dark, and decided to walk down to the glen to make a rare, early morning meditation.

As I descended into the glen I hit something. I had forgotten about the felled tree laying in the middle of the very dark glen. Even though my eyes were dark adapted, I did not see the branches lying on the ground until I walked into them. As I peered into the darkness before me, my eyes took in a faint ribbon of light stretching away from me for many feet into the night’s darkness. I had to take a few steps back to catch my breath and regain my balance.

Puzzled, I walked back up to the rim of the glen from where I could see that there were no patches of low-lying fog forming anywhere down in the glen. The night sky above was clear and starlit, and I could not see any sky shine from other ground sources. I gave the long sliver of glowing light a wide berth so as not to disturb it, as I walked around to approach it from another angle to see if I could discover its source and extent.  This time as I got closer, I could make out a soft grey-blue  glow hovering over the full length of the carcass of the tree. As my mind took in the significance of the scene my head dropped intuitively out of respect for what I knew in my heart was a lifeforce leaving the dying tree. I said some words of regret, and my body started to shake with excitement or cold, as I sat in quiet wonder.   

The glow disappeared as the morning light entered the glen. I rushed to the house to investigate the strange light on-line.  My cursory research suggested that the grey-blue glow fit the pattern for bioluminescence from decaying organic matter. The common name is Foxfire or Will ‘o the Wisp, and it was documented long ago. The usual sources are decaying matter and fungi, and the glow is so faint that it can only be observed if your eyes have been dark adapted. Apparently, the light is produced by a pair of special enzymes present in decaying matter which react with each other to release biophotons of soft light. After discussing the tree’s eerie glow with an experienced woodsmen and chemist, I chose the simple explanation that the light I had observed that morning came from rotting sawdust created under the ash bark by destructive beetle activity.

A few days later I started to dissect the trunk for firewood, and I noticed how thick the bark was, and how little actual sawdust had been produced by the beetle invaders. The amount of sawdust under the bark was trivial, and it just didn’t seem possible that so little organic matter could produce all the light that I had observed. In addition, the bark was so thick that it would surely absorb all the light photons completely. More compelling, was the sudden realization that the rest of the ash trees that were still standing were equally infected, but they did not give off any visible light emissions on that night. As the realization sank in; that the eerie glow over the dying ash tree was most likely its life force or spirit leaving the dying carcass, it sent a chill up my spine.

I consulted some of the top forestry research and management experts in Canada, who ruled out an explosion of the Armillaria fungus, that glows in the dark forest, and can spread over large areas of forest floor and acts as a communication system for trees. It became clear that the unusual glow could not be explained satisfactorily by natural processes. I reviewed my personal impressions as I witnessed the event, keeping in mind that my human presence in the glen could have perturbed the natural electromagnetic field energies present on that morning. The physical evidence I observed that morning informed me (mentally and spiritually) that spirits live  in trees. Why is there no documentation of this anywhere? Can only autistic eyes discern spirits and things that glow in the night? Now I see trees differently. Wherever there are trees, there is abundant life. They’re like living fasteners that connect the sky with the earth. Because they live in both worlds, they act as a conduit of communication between them.  

FMRI studies reveal that consciousness is still measurably present after the brain/body has died, telling us that consciousness is not the result of biological processes. Science supports the theory that trees have intelligence, because trees have been observed to mount organized defences against a deadly threat like invading insects. Planning and strategizing require creative thought.

When the rest of the ash group is felled this spring, they will hopefully provide more opportunities to study this undocumented phenomenon, perhaps with a night vision camera.

Shamanic and other spiritual cultures around the world honour and use sacred trees as: portals or gateways to hidden worlds, sources of wisdom, and even wish fulfillment. To name just a few, the Mohawks of North America honour the cedar as the sacred tree of life. The Caribe natives honour the ceiba tree, and West African’s have spiritual relationships with the iroko tree.

The visible light emissions coming from the ash tree trunk 3 days after it was cut down, proved to me with high confidence that trees have a spiritual nature that gives them life, and it can be observed and possibly documented under the right conditions.

DID YAHWEH, THE ANCIENT GOD OF WEAPONS, GIVE GUNPOWDER TO CHRISTIAN COLONIALS?

It took a while to connect Yahweh with explosives, that eventually led humanity down into the absolute destruction of nuclear annihilation. After learning that gunpowder was actually discovered [invented] in Arabia and not China, this bit of important information sets the stage for Christian colonialism, a process that was unleashed against the more primitive indigenous worlds, in order to destroy the sacred and supporting relationship they maintained with nature spirits, and gain control over indigenous wealth.

When we use ethical eyes to examine the enormous success of Christian colonialism in dominating the world: physically, and spiritually, we recognize the high crimes against humanity and the environment it has produced, mostly through the use of violence facilitated by explosive gunpowder. We judge the goodness of a tree by its fruits.

Gun violence changed killing and war craft dramatically because it provided “a safe distance” from which one could kill his enemy with a much lower risk of retaliation. Is it any wonder that today, the legacy of handgun violence continues to dominate those nations constructed with colonial gun violence? In the USA for example, gun violence takes more than 30,000 lives a year according to former President Obama.

Yahweh was an ancient Sumerian entity, who may have his roots in the Elohim, the group of Annunaki entities who colonized Earth in the ancient past, to mine Earth’s gold. They left us written records of their settlements, their creations and achievements, and their cosmology. To relieve themselves of their physical toil in the mines, they manipulation the human genome [documented], to produce a race of human slaves that they could control and manage spiritually by thought control through our pineal gland transducer.  

The mythical patriarch Abraham was portrayed by bible script writers as a Sumerian who lived in the city of Ur, before being driven out by violence. Apparently, his original Sumerian name was Abram, before he changed it to a Semitic version. His father Tirhu [another Sumerian name] served as high priest to the Sumerian moon god Nannar.  Abraham fled Ur during ethnic conflicts, and moved to the Levant where he reinvented himself as the father of a new nation. To fit into the local culture, he adopted the local diety known as EL [from the Elohim], as well as circumcision, a local practice that allowed him to live unnoticed as a Semite among Semitic men. So it seems that it was not Yahweh’s desire for human flesh sacrifice that initiated the practice of penile mutilation, or sexual abuse of infants.

Sumerian texts inform us that the original Yahweh belonged to the group of elite Annunaki royals, who administered the gold mining operations on Earth, and who demanded to be worshipped as gods. They built many cities in what is now Iraq, and Abraham descended from a line of Sumerians. He adopted Yahweh as his favourite god, because Yahweh had a reputation as the storm god, and “god of the forge” where metals were made into weapons.

……………………………………………………………………………………………..

From Haaretz:                                                                          

“Scholar Nissim Amzallag, of Ben-Gurion University, disagrees with the claim that Yahweh’s origins are obscure and argues that the deity was originally a god of the forge and patron of metallurgists during the Bronze Age (c. 3500–1200 BCE).  Amzallag specifically cites the ancient copper mines of the Timna Valley (in southern Israel), biblical and extra-biblical passages, and similarities of Yahweh to gods of metallurgy in other cultures for support.

The idea here is that he was venerated in a region known for its copper mines, a valuable resource in the Bronze Age, and thus he could well have been the god of the forge. Some passages of the Bible lend a certain credence to this theory.

Poetic metaphors throughout the Bible describe Yahweh as a fiery deity who makes the mountains smoke (Psalms 144:5) and melts them down (Isaiah 63:19b), just like smelters melt down ore to obtain copper and other metals, the researcher notes. In fact, in Psalm 18:18 Yahweh is depicted as anthropomorphized furnace: “smoke rose from his nostrils; consuming fire came from his mouth, burning coals blazed out of it.

To ancient people, the process of melting down rocks to extract metal would have “appeared completely preternatural and required a divine explanation,” Amzallag told Haaretz.

Yahweh’s metallurgical attributes were also on display in the pillar of fire and smoke by which he guides the Hebrews in the desert (Exodus 13:21) and the cloud that accompanies his visits to the Tent of Meeting (Exodus 33:9–10), a simpler version of the Tabernacle in which Moses speaks face to face with God.”

……………………………………………………………………………..

We know how high officials in power have created gods and religions, because we have records dating back to Roman times, that document the creation of Christianity. They reveal how Roman Emperor Constantine elevated the humble Essene shaman Yeshua [Jesus] to a Roman god, before editing all of the false Roman gospels into the New Testament of the Christian bible to support their storyline. When combined with the fictional writings of Ezra and the rest of the power hungry Yahweh priesthood who created the backstory of: Abraham, Moses, Egypt, Jericho, etc…we come to understand that the bible is a complete work of political fiction, and no deities were ever directly involved.

Power hungry Yahweh priests like Ezra returning from Babylonian captivity, saw a split Hebrew nation upon their return. In order to reunite the two kingdoms under one religion and one deity, they created a fictional narrative that incorporated a powerful but fake champion god that ruled with absolute power. Like modern Hollywood writers, they scripted the rescue of Hebrews from Egypt by this fantastic hero god, who led them to commit the first holocaust in Jericho. Hebrew authors created a powerful destructive force in Yahweh, that would dominate the Hebrew nation and the landscape for thousands of years.

A few centuries after Rome brutally colonized and Christianized most of Europe, those nations that were once victims of this aggressive process began to recognize opportunities for economic prosperity in colonialism. Like their former oppressors, they took up colonialism to grow empires for their own power and profit.

The one war technology that facilitated western colonialism that dominated the globe for many centuries, more than any other weapon, was gunpowder, an explosive material that could kill at great distances, and destroy protective walls and buildings. The original handgun was a small hand canon from the 13th century, found in China, as described by Wikipedia. The bible narratives describe great weapons used by Yahweh in the complete destruction Jericho when he supposedly became so angry with the Hebrews failure to destroy everything. Did Yahweh use gunpowder to destroy Jericho completely?

Wikipedia provides some helpful information:   

“Archaeological samples of the gun, specifically the hand cannon (huochong), have been dated starting from the 13th century. The oldest extant gun whose dating is unequivocal is the Xanadu Gun because it contains an inscription describing its date of manufacture corresponding to 1298. It is so called because it was discovered in the ruins of Xanadu, the Mongol summer palace in Inner Mongolia. The Xanadu Gun is 34.7 cm in length and weighs 6.2 kg. The design of the gun includes axial holes in its rear which some speculate could have been used in a mounting mechanism. Like most early guns it is small, weighing just over six kilograms and thirty-five centimeters in length.[40] Although the Xanadu Gun is the most precisely dated gun from the 13th century, other extant samples with approximate dating likely predate it.”

HOW MANY MENTAL STATES DO I NAVIGATE THRU EACH DAY?

As a child I used to wake up at night with different feelings, mostly fear, anxiety, or dread, and not know where they came from. I woke up in a different state than I had gone to sleep in, and I would often panic from the realization that things were happening to me that I could not control.

I think it was before puberty, that I started to notice the changes in me during the day. I identified strongly with my feelings, and I noticed that the “me” I was in the morning, was quite different from the me that I observed around noon, and again different from the me that I became by nightfall. I could be quite calm in the morning, and then something would happen to send my feelings soaring or plummeting, and I often felt at the mercy of my wild reactions to events unfolding around me.

Even when older, my body memory would cause me to respond to bad experiences in a deeply childish way, though my maturing observing mind did not approve of my irrational behavior. Tourette’s works subliminally, and I could not control much of my physical tension and the need to express it explosively and secretly. Though I consciously desired the rational safety of calmness, I felt great frustration at not being able to regulate my reactions and feelings.

Today, I can see the various states of mind I go through during the course of my day. Many of them are blended in what seems like a seamless stream of more or less continuous experiences.

Now I; pause, watch quietly, and sense carefully to discern the seams where one state ends and the next one begins. When I do this regularly, I get a sense that I’m recovering bits of me, along with some measure of direct control over my thoughts and reactions.

THE ROOTS OF DESTRUCTIVE  CHRISTIAN COLONIALISM BEGIN IN JERICHO

Students of historic and modern colonialism quickly recognize it as a form of state terrorism. Classical colonial terrorism has been the use of violence to gain political control over indigenous people and their land wealth.  Human history reveals that colonialism has been, and still is one of humanity’s most destructive traits, that has cursed humanity and the environment since men began to form groups on this planet, and descended into violence in order to subjugate, or destroy each other.

Christian Victims – become Christian Villains

Without exception, the most destructive form of colonization has been Christian colonization as practiced by Europe’s nations. European nations were violently Christianized by Rome since 325 CE, when Constantine perfected colonialism.  He combined; massive violence with an imposed state religion [Roman made Christianity], to control the hearts and minds of the defeated, and toxic colonial laws to enslave indigenous people and their land wealth. When Rome invented Christianity as its state religion and imposed it with repeated violence on Europe, it launched a religious pogrom against native or indigenous beliefs that lasted more than 18 centuries. Christianity became the greatest criminal organization in the world led by the Army of Christ, aka: the Jesuits. Their greed and malice produced endless crimes against humanity on this wonderful planet. Those nations Christianized with Roman violence, went on to promote Christian violence globally, and their favourite targets were children.

The Jewish-Christian-Islamic deity chosen by the Hebrew priests shopping around for a god to champion their broken nation, was named Yahweh. He was a leftover deity or false god from the Annunaki pantheon of deities. He was recruited by Hebrew priests [Ezra?], as their champion god, and they created a narrative around Abraham, and Moses, Enoch, etc…to fashion a powerful religion that would reunite the kingdoms of Israel and Judah under one religion.  [Constantine used the same tactic in 325 CE to reunite Rome after a destructive civil war.] Ambitious and power hungry Hebrew priests created Yahweh, and pretended that he succeeded in freeing Hebrews from Egyptian bondage, then he led them into genocidal land theft  in Jericho. It was typical of Hollywood fiction today, written to impress an audience. Yahweh was portrayed as the great and absolute destroyer of all of Israel’s enemies. But the priest-script writers went too far in Jericho. What these ancient script writers failed to foresee, was that their description of Yahweh and his love for sacrifice, made him out to be genocidal land thief, terrorist, child killer, etc.. as he destroyed and burned EVERYTHING in sacrifice to himself. Poor Jericho. Yahweh was foolishly credited with taking the Hebrew nation down into the lowest realms of destruction, and creating a nation of criminal colonials.

So Yahweh, or the Hebrew priests who created the character of Yahweh, also created the roots of Christian terrorism, that destroyed and enslaved countless indigenous worlds around the planet.

CAN THE ETHERIC ENERGY OF OUR WAR DEAD BRING AN END TO WARS?

One time Theosophist Rudolph Steiner delivered a lecture in 1915, in which he talked about etheric matter as a hidden spiritual force that could someday be used to advance humanity’s evolution….

Those who crossed the threshold of death on the bloodstained battlefields, pass through this portal of death in a different way than those who pass through it when they die in bed, or as a result of an ordinary accident. In a certain way, they pass through the portal of death so that they reckon with their death, even though this may be more or less unconscious, but in a certain way the astral body reckons with death. We can always say that these deaths are sacrifices. All the etheric bodies, of youthful human beings that thus ascend to the spiritual world contain unused forces. And at present we are facing an epoch in the evolution of humanity in which the souls of men will be able to look up consciously to the spiritual worlds and say to themselves: A time has gone by which sent many, many unused etheric bodies to the spiritual world. These unused etheric bodies contain forces. And from a spiritual-scientific standpoint, we may say even at the present time that these unused etheric bodies contain forces that will be very significant for the evolution of humanity.”

Looking at man’s destructive track record on this planet, it looks like our spiritual evolution has been barred, or stalled for far too long with endless collective violence known as war that pushes us back into spiritual darkness. For example, Yahweh’s highly publicized holocausts beginning in Jericho, drove humanity repeatedly into destructive downspirals that created criminal cultures based on violence and the sacrifice of others.

Today’s seekers have reached a level of spiritual understanding that opens our eyes to see war as little more than hate crimes, because everyone who gets sucked into this vortex of negative energy ultimately becomes infected with fear and hate;  before, during, and after the event.

Steiner gave this amazing lecture during WWI, as millions of young men were forced to fight to the death, in an all or nothing colonial dual of international proportions. Steiner believes that the etheric energies of all those young people who died “prematurely”, in violent wars was essentially unused, and remains trapped between worlds. Steiner believes that this enormous resource of etheric or spiritual energy can be tapped and used to bring change to human spirituality by those who know how to approach it properly.

Questions:

1)  Are the reasons for human wars physical or spiritual?

2)  If wars are an outcome of our social entropy and low spirituality, can the etheric or spiritual forces of our war dead be: recruited, organized, and projected as a solution to what seems like an unsolvable human problem?

3)  Would the youthful owners of the etheric bodies that fell in countless violent wars, be willing to help humanity solve the problem of man’s violent nature, and bring an end to war forever?

Here are a few things that seem to control human thinking, feeling, and behavior:

Organized thoughtforms called egregores that wash us with constant messages of fear, anxiety, dread, hate, vigilance, impulsivity,

Social delusions are essentially egregores that grow into entire cultures that control the population.

Energy Grids – that receive, hold, and broadcast manipulative messages and energies that able to access our pineal gland, and speak to us.

Can we use spiritual energy of others stored “in the cloud”, like a charged battery, to recharge our spiritual efforts at deconstructing the grid of electromagnetic control?

HOW SOCIAL DELUSIONS SHAPE AND CONTROL US

Most autistic people live, by choice or default, on the margins of society where they feel more comfortable and less exhausted. Trying to fit a square person into a round neurotypical hole every day, takes much effort, and may result in various forms of personal pain that we wish to avoid.

It could be a very simple matter of separation or distancing from the main herd that allows us those of us on the spectrum to grow up less culturally conditioned, preferring our own original thinking and ideas, to those that were imposed on us by the silent authority of community culture.

Or it could be that our perspective tends to be more informed by the patterns that our autistic minds discern, and which NT don't. ,

I'll restate this briefly here, because I've discussed it on previous posts, but autistic people "view", and therefore experience the world differently. What we "see" differs from what NTs may see. I feel this is incredibly important because, what we see represents the world we live in. The world I see and live in, has to satisfy my needs, and it also fit into, or at least be compatible with all the other worlds nested together in the same paradigm that we share as consensual reality. How the hell does all that work without unravelling into chaos?

Based on my personal experience, spectrum people come with or develop much higher sensitivity to many things, including those control mechanisms used by society to manage the behaviour of others.

What I call "social delusions" are powerful thought control mechanism [egregores?], that most NTs are not aware of, but which they willingly embrace in order to belong, and which become the main operating systems in their minds for life.

The list of social delusions is long, and it grows exponentially under today's dark conditions of fear, hate, anger, greed, etc.. 

1. Organized Religions - The greatest delusion to curse planet earth is the delusion that organized religions are beneficial for humanity - Organized religions posing as spiritual liberation systems, have in fact destroyed and enslaved more lives than any global tyrant or criminal organization could ever accomplish. The human ability/need to believe has been used to enslave and feed on humanity for thousands of years.

OMG - MY SUBCONSCIOUS ACTUALLY PRODUCED A BURST OF SPIRITUAL VIOLENCE

When I examine the bioluminescent phenomenon produced by my subconscious mind, and witnessed by my conscious mind on that night in October [2018],  it’s becoming increasingly clear that it was in fact a violent event on the physical and spiritual levels.

On the physical level, I walked into a tree branch in the total darkness of night, and the branch struck my  face so hard that it set off optical discharges, and left scratches on my cheeks.  Though I was never in any real physical danger, the blow to my head triggered whatever defensive systems were embedded in my physical being. Since then, I’ve discovered that we have fantastic on-board defences that we are not aware of, and do not consciously control.

On the spiritual level, my subconscious reacted to the sudden threat in the dark, by releasing my etheric material, which is apparently composed of cosmic or spiritual energy like prana, chi, or orgone etc... This etheric material has been called the Etheric Double because it is like a membrane layer that replicates our physical self in every way, and it remains connected to our physical body by a long thin silver cord. When that cord breaks, the owner cannot return to his physical body.  My subconscious mind projected that membrane of energy in the form of a blanket that covered the entire trunk of the fallen ash tree to prevent any further attacks on me.  It was a burst of spiritual violence released by my subconscious to a life threatening event.

ARE ANCIENT DIVINITIES HIDDEN IN DARKNESS MERELY SUBCONSCIOUS ASPECTS OF HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS?

WHY DID THE ROMAN CREATORS OF CHRISTIANITY DEPICT A MILD AND SUBMISSIVE JESUS EMERGING FROM THE WILDLY UNPREDICTABLE, TOTALLY DESTRUCTIVE, AND DOMINATING SHADOW OF YAHWEH?

Were the Roman authors of the bible, trying to show feminine energy emerging from masculine energy when they created the divine trinity? Or did they tap into other ancient knowledge that reveals how divinities are the subconscious aspects of human consciousness?  

Once we understand that Roman Catholicism was invented by ambitious mortal Romans, and not a bunch of Hebrew holy men wandering in the desert and healing the people with exorcisms, we free ourselves from thousands of years of social delusions that have controlled, driven, and harmed humanity.

We know how Rome, thru the Flavians [1st century], and Constantine [3rd century],  hijacked a fledgling ministry started by an itinerant Essene shaman called Jesus, who attracted followers and roamed the Levant around 30 CE. We know that a historic Hebrew character named Jeshua was active in those days, because his travels along the old silk route were traced by historic explorers like Holger Kirsten, who wrote: “Jesus Lived in India”.  Kirsten found written evidence of Jeshua’s studies in a Tibetan mystery school, and along the old silk trade routes that were sprinkled with Jewish settlements. Even in those days, seekers often studied in various mystery schools. 

Roman records inform us that Roman politicians conscripted turncoat Hebrew writers [Josephus, etc], to create false narratives [gospels]. Rome elevated the itinerant shaman Jesus to a Roman god, created false gospels to support the fake narrative, and Christianity began to dominate and pacify Rome’s enormous slave population.

Christianity became the central prong in Roman conquest as Roman Catholicism was violently imposed on indigenous nations for the next two thousand years. Christianity became organized crime, as it destroyed nations and religions that stood in its way of total domination.

When we read the Roman gospels, we see how the old warrior god Yahweh, who was taken from the Babylonian and Anunnaki pantheon of gods [ by Hebrew priests in exile and then Romans], has been presented as the lower god of materialism [total destruction in Jericho], that lives and reigns in our male subconscious minds as fear, while the son of the old god has emerged with new feminine energy, and lives and reigns in our new spiritual consciousness as love.

DEFRAGGING THE SELF

In a previous post I showed how my subconscious mind rose up immediately to protect me when I was punched in the face by a tree in the dark. My etheric response was instantaneous, and commanded by my subconscious mind. It revealed to me: the deep secret of human construction, the power of our subconscious mind, and how fantastically it operates beyond the more limited capabilities of our conscious mind.  

Upon reflection, I become aware that my subconscious mind state has often emerged unbidden to protect me against great trauma.

In my youth, when a life experience occurred that was too traumatic for me to process in the moment, and I sensed an overload of fear that could overwhelm and crush my personal freedom and sovereignty, my subconscious and its on-board defensive system kicked in to protect me.

One common night horror was a visit from an ugly primitive looking creature that would sit on my chest like a heavy rock, and rob me of my breath. I could barely get a glimpse of it from under the sheets, but it was so terrifying that I knew had to leave my body or perish.

                                                              Not you again!

I needed to find a safe place to hide until the horror went away. And it happened, as though I had done it many times before, my conscious awareness separated itself from the nightmarish horrors of the particular event in order to prevent an emotional overload that could breakdown my sovereignty.  I fragmented my self in order to survive, and emerged the next morning with a somewhat different sense of self.

In many ways our brain-mind seems to function like a computer, where our life experiences are recorded, like any other abstract data, to be stored for later use. Bits of data can become lost in memory because they’re recorded in different parts of a computer’s memory, and not related to other data. The computer or human memory becomes fragmented by isolated experiences that are ‘not wired together’. To coin an old neurosciences phrase, “Neurons that fire together, wire together”.

When I revisit these traumatic scenes now, and feel my way through the events in a compassionately creative way, I believe that I can rewire the event in memory and re-energize it with my conscious attention to bring about real self-healing, or repair of the system.

As my conscious mind begins to recognize the hidden contributions of my subconscious mind, it no longer seems as shadowy, hostile, threatening, or oppositional. The relationship between my conscious and subconscious states of mind is changing, as the fear that separates that ancient relationship begins to dissipate. A little voice now tells me that perhaps integration is possible.

CORRECTION TO POST OF JUNE 20/20

It was actually Hebrew turncoat Titus Flavius Josephus, and not "Pliny the Elder"who helped the Roman imperial family known as the Flavians, create false Christian gospels that would pacify the rebellious populations in the Middle East. After Emperor Constantine edited the contents of the first bible in 325 CE to suit his agenda, Roman made Christianity would eventually become the state religion of Rome, instituted to pacify Rome's huge slave population that was threatening rebellion. 

European nations that were once victims of the Unholy Roman Empire, used the Roman formula for colonization with Christianity as its central prong, when they destroyed much of the indigenous world. Systemic Christian violence destroyed  most of the naturally occurring religions during a 500 year period of genocidal land theft in the Americas, and other places around the world.

MY HERO’S JOURNEY INTO DARKNESS LED ME TO DISCOVER MY ETHERIC LIGHT

As I look back over this blog which started in March 2019, it’s grown into an honest journal of my personal experiences since that strange moonless October night in 2018, when I had an accidental collision with a fallen tree on my property.

While many journeys of the human soul take a lifetime to complete, this very short journey took less than an hour. It started early one morning around 4:00 AM when I made a bathroom visit, after which I found myself wide awake. Since it was a warm October night, I decided to put on my bathrobe and walk down to a small glen on my property, where my dowsing surveys had detected lines of electromagnetic energy emerging from the landscape. These ground energies are strongest at sunrise, and I wanted to experience a meditation under these conditions.

It was a moonless night, and I felt relaxed as my sleepy feet led me down into the glen. Suddenly, something out of the darkness punched me in the face, stopping me in my tracks. As I stood in shock, it took a couple of seconds to realize that I had walked into some tree branches belonging to the tree we had cut down a few days before. The impact around my eyes produced what looked like electrical discharges from my optic nerve, and after they quieted down I saw a thin silver ribbon emerge and move away from me. When I walked around the tree lying on the ground to see what had happened, I saw how the silver ribbon had grown into a huge display of bioluminescence. It looked like a cloud about one inch thick, and hovering passively over the entire length of the tree trunk, producing a faint grayish-blue light that shimmered.

I knelt beside the bioluminescence, and as I studied it, a feeling of quiet reverence swept over me. I knew somehow that what I was observing was so extraordinary that it did not belong to ordinary reality. It looked like it came out of the fallen tree, and I assumed too quickly that it was a form of subtle energy that had emerged from the dying tree.

Most hero’s journeys seem to be about human spirit falling into matter, but this journey hurled me, holus bolus [subconscious et al], into the world of cosmic light. I would chase that light for the next year, until my journey ended in Theosophy. There, I learned that the bioluminescence that I had been staring at in the dark and attributing to the fallen tree, was in fact an integral part of me, that my subconscious mind had deployed in a moment of crisis to defend me, when the branch hit my face in the dark.

As a senior, I wasn’t sure I had the fire in the belly required to go on a serious journey, but the event dangled before me…and I needed to know the nature of that light. For the next year, I went deep and investigated many sources of naturally occurring bioluminescence, including Wilhelm Reich’s orgone energy. That sojourn revealed the life cycle of bions, and the all pervasive [divine] ether that fills the cosmos.

After exhausting all scientific explanations, I found meaningful information and explanations in material provided by the Theosophical Society. The Etheric Double, by A. E. Powell describes my etheric double perfectly, and provides many examples of instances where a person has been able to disconnect their etheric matter and use it to see into or travel to other world’s. In 1848, the Fox sisters introduced spirituality to the world, and those who took up the movement were able to connect with an use their etheric energy in physical ways. The rest is history.

Summing up, I believe that my hero’s journey into light was successful, and brought me back a tremendous amount of hidden information about how I am constructed and how I work on deeper levels, without my conscious knowledge, and more importantly perhaps, without my direct control.
