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.

DESTRUCTIVE SUPREMACY IS ALIVE AND CONTAGIOUS IN CARRIERS LIKE CANADA'S JORDAN PERTERSON.

Jordan Peterson is a Canadian psychologist from the University of Toronto, who is working with the current Supremacist government in the province of Ontario, led by the incompetent Premier Doug Ford.

WHEN WE TURN FROM LOVE TO HATE, WE DEPRIVE OUR SOULS OF THE VITAL LIFE FORCE UNTIL WE BECOME SO SPIRITUALLY IMPOVERISHED THAT WE DIE SPIRITUALLY BEFORE WE DIE PHYSICALLY.

     "You are my sunshine my only sunshine,

      You make me happy when skies are grey,

      You'll never know dear how much I love you"

                                                 Thank you BetterWallpapers

      Please don't take my sunshine away....

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE FLIP: "AS ABOVE SO BELOW" TO "AS BELOW SO ABOVE"?

It changes everything.....

The phrase states that the system of reality we are living in has symmetry, which implies full integration within this system, as we move back and forth between the planes of spirit and matter, in our struggle to find our way home.  

I think it was during my adolescence, when I realized that the apparent world around me was a horrible mess, created with layers of delusions that I was expected to accept and support. All the levels of authority over me were based not on innate universal wisdom, but merely higher levels of brutal violence designed to control me and everyone.

The ancient saying: "As Above So Below", is attributed to Thoth, Hermes, etc..but  what do we learn when we study this phrase for hidden truths? If this saying is indeed true, then it should work both ways, as we invert the original saying to: "As Below So Above". If this is the shadow side of the original saying, what important message does it convey to the diligent student?

My interpretation informs us that the forces, or energies that exist in the lower world of the subconscious mind, are also present in the higher world of the conscious mind. We are not of one mind, but many minds, and we can train our consciousness to travel across the many levels of mind. We individuate and then reconnect with our group mind many times each day.

I THINK WE COME TO EARTH TO LEARN HOW TO WORK WITH MATTER

When my research brought me to look at spiritual messages from lifelong investigators like Delores Cannon, and many others, regarding the purpose of souls who reincarnate here [Earth planes], I learned that Light Workers or Wanderers can work with energy, but not with matter. 

While this may be true for some Wanderers, I believe that I came here to learn how to work with matter. My reasons for stating this, is that I find "physicality" extremely frustrating at times. Repeated frustration while trying to make changes to matter, has often informed me that I was not designed to manipulate atoms, only their energy.

As a young boy, my world included daily construction work going on around me, as suburbs began to spread around major cities. I naturally followed the culture I was growing up in, and started to pick up discarded nails, wood, and tools to start my own wooden projects. Wood was expensive even then, and I often rode my bike behind the local grocery store to collect orange crates as sources of wood. I converted crates into simple shelves, bookcases, and small toys. 

I fell in love with wood as I grew older, and there were a few tree houses, and rickety forts with my name on them. At 13 I built a small boat about 13 ft long. Since then, my hands have built many things, including: sheds, beds, desks, kitchen additions, garages, etc...

I overcame my frustrations, and learned to enjoy manipulating atoms.

So what? I now see that the learning process I followed, which prepared me to work with atoms on a small scale, may have enabled me to work with atoms on a much larger scale like entire worlds. One thing I learned from woodworking, is that tools [power tools] make the work much easier and faster. What tools do I need to form new worlds?

Is this where manipulating streams of various cosmic energies begins? Do we start with a fertile field, from which we can extract the necessary components to create a new world of harmony and bliss?

If I succeed in building a new world of harmony and bliss, do I as creator get to play the role of god, and control the wheel of karma to my advantage?

WHAT IS SPIRITUAL DOMINATION AND HOW DOES IT WORK AS A FORM OF GOVERNANCE?

I spent most of my working life in Health Physics, in the nuclear and medical industries, where I protected workers and the public against nuclear risks arising from our nuclear activities, which we felt were justified because of the enormous benefits to humanity.

Both industries are heavily regulated with "rules and consequences", and eventually one wakes up to the fact that it's not nuclear or medical materials that are being regulated and controlled but, the people themselves within that organization. Regulation perturbs our lifestyles.

How does regulation control and change us?

Nuclear workers are monitored constantly for evidence of radiation exposure. Very sensitive dosimeters are worn on the surface of the body during work in radiation fields to measure direct exposure. Other methods of medical monitoring [bioassays and scans] are used regularly to detect any uptakes of radioactivity that could result in an internal dose not seen by a dosimeter worn on the surface of the body.

A study of nuclear workers in the 70's, revealed how regular medical monitoring had improved their overall health, largely because of positive changes they made to their lifestyles which were driven by close monitoring....If you are required to submit a personal urine sample every Monday morning for analysis, you will probably be more careful about which substances you will consume during the weekend. In this case, close monitoring motivates us to improve our lives incrementally.

When we join regulated organizations or societies, we submit willingly to their rules and consequences, and allow ourselves to be governed or dominated by those rules.

The same process works for organized religions. Yahwism, or Yahweh-Jehovah religions include: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and are all forms of spiritual domination because they use rules [commandments] and punishments [ a maliciously evil devil, short term purgatory, and forever hell,] to control our behaviour.

Q - How does it work?

A - Indwelling, makes internal control over our sovereignty work seamlessly. 

During our most vulnerable stage of childhood, long before we have matured enough to know right from wrong, or develop the spiritual strength to resist outside forces...as "presumptive children of Yahweh", we are forced by our parents and culture to accept Yahweh, a dark and unknown entity into our hearts, and allow it to dwell within us, and guide our thoughts and lives. Yikes! Oh No!

HOLD EVERYTHING! WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS DEAL?

For countless generations, Jews, Christians, and Muslims have forced their children to surrender their spiritual sovereignty to a proven dark and destructive force that has not shown any evidence of caring or loving humanity. Indeed, Yahweh-Jehovah's destructive forces have drown us like vermin at every opportunity, and feed on our sacred energy. This is  NOT the work of a loving deity, but a spiritual parasite that dumbs down and then dominates its prey with a river of malicious thoughtforms that awaken and inspire "the supremacist mind" in each of us.

This is spiritual domination of the worst kind because it transforms us into one of them!

IS OUR PHYSICAL PROPRIOCEPTION AUGMENTED WTH SPIRITUAL PROPRIOCEPTION? AS ABOVE SO BELOW?

Physical proprioception is a subtle sense that informs our brains of the location of each body part in space-time. The aggregate of all that information creates an identity package that allows us to declare: "This is me!". Proprioception is triggered by our physical movements that provide a feedback signal to our brain to establish our presence in a physical environment. The constant feedback signal from our arms, legs, head, feet, fingertips, ears, etc...as they move, creates our sense of physical presence. Movement is the key, and ancient records inform us that nothing was created until the Great Creator woke up, and "moved".

But we are cosmic spirits living in material bodies, and so we must have a similar "spiritual proprioception" that provides our "sense of spiritual self", in the non-material worlds which we travel and inhabit.

Does spiritual proprioception work in the same way as physical proprioception? Does spirit have to move, before we get a sense of our spiritual self, and how does that happen? How do we exercise our spirits? When am I operating in strictly spirit mode? Would developing our spiritual proprioception give us insights into how our other less dense bodies operate?

Can we learn to detect, discern, and manipulate our spiritual energy to find solutions and improve our spiritual lives?

ARE MALES PROGRAMMED TO COLONIZE? WHEN A MALE FORCES HIMSEL ON A FEMALE, HE COLONIZES HER.


Western dictionaries contain many definitions written from a political perspective, in order to support and lend false legitimacy to the dominant culture which they serve faithfully.

As we look around today we can still see the human wreckage produced by western cultures that still practice criminal colonialism. Has it really been criminal?

Many ancient societies were able to separate good [desirable] behavior  from bad [undesirable] behavior, and ancient lawmakers dating back to the Court of Hammurabi, had identified and outlawed the worst crimes as: covetousness, theft, and murder, adopted later by Hebrew priests as: "The Ten Commandments". These three crimes combine exponentially to produce criminal colonialism.

Humanity has recognized the mental depravity of these human acts for thousands of years, as an existential evil , and unworthy of civilized societies that value human life.  However, those societies that continue to profit from colonization, will hide its criminality in social delusions like British Supremacy, American Manifest Destiny, and Constantine's Christian spiritual domination.... [one religion to bind them all in spiritual darkness.]  

Collins Dictionary is just one of many western dictionaries that openly support western political agendas, by providing political cover [concealment] that downgrades or euphemizes their collective crimes against humanity during "the colonial period", which continues to this day.

Collins Dictionary gives the following definitions for: "colonize",

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

colonize in British English

or colonise (ˈkɒləˌnaɪz)
VERB
1. 
to send colonists to or establish a colony in (an area)
2. 
to settle in (an area) as colonists
3. (transitive)
to transform (a community) into a colony
4. 
(of plants and animals) to become established in (a new environment)

THE ROOTS OF THE MYTHICAL PHEONIX BIRD HAVE BEEN UNCOVERED IN NATURE

The Phoenix Bird myth embodies the most important life lesson because it shows human souls  the way home, at the end of another life in the physical planes of Earth. It is the universal symbol of hope.

          Photo shows my work- "The Canadian Phoenix" as it adorns Grandad's Workshop

The Phoenix Bird myth is universal, in that it has emerged naturally and spontaneously from many societies around the world, and is known by many names....the Slavs of Europe called it the Firebird, and honoured its visits every 500 years.

We know today, that most myths have some concrete basis in history [reality]...and in the case of the Phoenix Bird, birding experts may have finally discovered the historic source of the greatest myth to be revealed to human minds.

In Jennifer Ackerman's book; "The Bird Way", she quotes from Australian aboriginal author, Waipuldanya Philip Robert's book; "I, The Aboriginal",....[1960s]

"I have seen a hawk pick up a smoldering stick in its claws and drop it in a fresh patch of dry grass half a mile away, then wait with its mates for the mad exodus of scorched and frightened rodents and reptiles. When that area was burned, the process was repeated elsewhere."

"He had seen birds at fires himself, - black kites and whistling kites swooping, diving, gliding in an out of the flames, fluttering about on fire fueled updrafts."

Ancient human stories or myths tell us that fire was a gift from the gods, but that gift may have been delivered by their intrepid spiritual emissaries from the bird world.

WHICH DELUSIONS ARE MOST RESPONSIBLE FOR HUMAN MENTAL ILLNESS? THE SOCIAL DELUSIONS THAT ARE IMPOSED ON US FROM CHILDHOOD BY OUR HOME CULTURE, OR THE PERSONAL DELUSIONS WE CREATE FOR OURSELVES? 

My authoritative Canadian dictionary fails to give an informed definition of "insanity"......"the state of being insane, mental derangement, madness, "...

When we look at insanity from a subjective perspective we come to understand quickly that insanity is merely an extreme level of profound confusion, where the beliefs we have accumulated over our lives, contain so much cognitive dissonance that it destroys any personal integrity [spiritual health] that we may have achieved otherwise. 

Wherever cognitive dissonance  [CD] occurs in our bodies, it produces unresolved points of conflict that open portals to allow harmful energies to enter us, and influence our perception and our reactions to the world around us. We foolishly weave those social delusions into the spiritual nest that we live in where our behaviour is controlled by false ideas, as we surrender more and more of our personal freedom, power, and creativity. 

When we are the creators of delusions we can deconstruct those delusions with new information, that brings us closer to reality. But we did not create, and therefore cannot deconstruct, the enormous package of social delusions that surround us with false information that we have accepted as our beliefs...usually without close examination of the contents of those beliefs.

It's time to sort out our "true original thoughts" and separate them from those thoughtforms that are imposed on us from away, and which ultimately harm us!

CRIMINAL NATIONS FLOCK TOGETHER IN ORDER TO PROTECT THE PRIZE LANDS THEY HAVE TAKEN WITH COLONIAL TERRORISM...defined as: "the use of violence and threats of violence to gain political control over indigenous nations and their land wealth."

THE SECOND COLONIZATION OF PALESTINE SINCE 1400 BCE...IS BEING LED BY AMERICAN- MADE TERRORIST AND RABID ZIONIST BEN NETANYAHU,  WITH AMERICAN-MADE WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION...CONFIRMING THAT THE CRIMINAL COLONIZATION OF PALESTINE IS ACTUALLY BEING COMMITTED BY A HAPLESS AMERICA.

AMERICAN HISTORY IS THE HISTORY OF CRIMINAL COLONIAL TERRORISM WROTE LARGE, AND IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN ARE SOME OF THE LASTEST VICTIMS OF AMERICA'S INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM.

Thousands of years of spilling sacred human blood in anger on the streets of Jerusalem have defiled and profaned that ground, rendering it evil. Centuries of human violence have flooded the streets of Jerusalem with human blood, defiling and cursing these lands as places of unlimited human carnage and suffering.

BEN [BEBE] NETANYAHU WAS BORN IN PALESTINE, [ ALREADY CLAIMED BY ZIONISTS] BUT HIS EDUCATION AND CULTURAL CONDITIONING IS LARGELY AMERICAN...AND SO NETANYAHU AS AN AMERICAN SON, HAS TAPPED INTO AMERICA'S CRIMINAL COLONIAL HISTORY, TO JUSTIFY HIS BRUTAL COLONIZATION OF PALESTINE WITH AMERICAN TERRORISM, IN THE FORM OF US WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION.

UNFORTUNATELY, AMERICA'S HISTORY OF COLONIAL TERRORISM AGAINST INDIGENOUS AMERICA AND THE REST OF THE WORLD, MEANS THERE IS NO AMERICAN PLATFORM OF MORALITY OR ETHICAL CONDUCT, FROM WHICH GOOD AMERICANS CAN CRITICIZE NETANYAHU'S MODERN REIGN OF TERROR AGAINST THE LONG-SUFFERING, INNOCENT ARAB VICTIMS IN PALESTINE. 

ONCE "AMERICAN-CULTURED" ISRAELI JEWS LEARN TO TRANSCEND THEIR PREDATORY CULTURAL CONDITIONING, AND BEGIN TO SHARE THE LAND THEY TOOK WITH CRIMINAL TERRORISM, THEIR "ETHICAL VISION" WILL BEGIN TO RETURN. TRANSCENDING THEIR COLONIAL CULTURAL CONDITIONING, WILL ENABLE THEM TO TRANSFORM THEIR AGENDA FROM DOMINATING THEIR ARAB HOSTS WITH BRUTAL VIOLENCE, TO RETURNING TO THE PEACEFUL RELATIONSHIP THAT JEWS AND ARABS ONCE ENJOYED IN PALESTINE, BEFORE BRITISH ZIONISTS PULLED THE BIG SCAM OF 1948, WHERE THEY PRETENDED TO WASH THEIR HANDS OF THE DIRTY MESS THEY MADE. IT PROVES THAT ALL SUPRMACISTS ARE COWARDS LACKING HONOUR, COURAGE, AND NOBILITY.

PERHAPS A DAY WILL COME WHEN ZIONISTS FINALLY REACH OUT WITH BROTHERHOOD, EQUALITY, AND JUSTICE TO THEIR VICTIMS THE PALESTINIAN ARAB NATION, AND ALL PEOPLES, NOT JUST JEWS AND ARABS, CAN LIVE IN HARMONY AND LOVE WITH HUMANITY AND SPIRITUALLY.
