Hypnotic Meditation to Access Your Higher Self: Music, Hypnosis, Meditation

About a year ago, after a synchronistic meeting, I was introduced to “hypno-coach” (hypnotherapist/life coach) Grace Smith. I had always been fascinated by hypnosis, and its potential, however, I was never really certain how it worked, or if it could work for me. Being interested in past lives, but not having a solid opinion, getting a past life regression (in particular) was something I had always dreamed of experiencing.

One day, Grace was visiting my town, and we opted to swap services, I read her tarot, in exchange for a “Soulkey” hypnosis session. As Grace states:

"Soulkey therapy was developed by a friend and mentor of mine, Martin Peterson. There are very few certified practitioners around the world and I am proud to count myself among them, along with the honor of having been appointed director of Soulkey, USA.  Soulkey therapy is a way of accessing a heightened level of “inner knowing” and shared, seemingly universal, allegory. What this means is that, often times, clients with diverse backgrounds and very little in common on the surface, share deeply similiar experiences during their Soulkey sessions, without having any prior knowledge of what to expect. For examples, clients regularly describe the “room” in which the Soulkey session takes place (as imagined in the mind), and their descriptive terms can sometimes be identical. I purposefully do not describe what the “room" “looks like” prior to the session for this reason; it never ceases to amaze me how many of clients all seem to “go to” the same exact “room” as soon as the process begins. During Soulkey, deep healing and transformation is made possible through the use of hypnosis. While a belief in past lives is not required for Soulkey to be effective, many clients experience what has been described as past life experiences, life between life experiences, even future life experiences. Whether this is “accurate” in the sense that the client is actually re-living a prior incarnation is irrelevant as clients who believe the process is “real” and those who believe it is a fictional “story” experience, from the results we have documented thus far, equivalent levels of last healing after the session. It appears as though the subconscious mind cares not what the religious beliefs, or lack-there-of, of the client are. So far it seems that simply closing one’s eyes, relaxing deeply, and being guided through the process of “imagining" healing on the “soul level” has deeply profound effects, for everyone."

Anxious, but equally excited, I readied myself for the session with an open mind, and allowing of any outcome. To my surprise, hypnosis seemed to be very similar to a type of meditation, with the hypnotist acting as the guide, who unlocks deeper levels of information within your subconscious through suggestion.  Hypnosis allowed me to “time travel” to my past, to get a better understanding of my present situation. While I was somewhat lucid, I mostly felt as though I had been guided into a dream, but in a gentle, familiar, and extremely non-abrasive way…again, very similar to meditation.

After my experience, what I have come to find out is that meditation, and hypnosis, while different, are both cut from the same cloth, in that they both serve as modalities to help you remember who you really are, and let to go of that which does not serve you any more.

According to Grace:

"While there are many forms of meditation, perhaps the most popular iteration is one in which the meditator closes their eyes, focuses on their breathing and becomes aware of their thoughts so as to detach from them.

Hypnosis has as many different definitions as there are practitioners, usually some combination of, “a deeply relaxed and highly focused state which bypasses the critical factor of the mind,”. For simplicity sake, I describe hypnosis as “meditation with a goal”.

By relaxing the body through progressive relaxation, counting backwards, imagery of safe places, and countless other techniques, the hypnosis client becomes highly suggestible as she reaches a state we call “somnambulism". This is a state of deep theta brain wave relaxation and, without fail, everyone of my clients who was a meditator exclaims after their first session “Wow! Hypnosis feels just like a really deep state of mediation”. Hypnosis is not a black out state, it isn’t sleep, and amnesia is not required for the session to be effective.

In fact, hypnosis is no different in feeling than that of a deep state of meditation, however, it is easier for most to reach this state through hypnosis than through the practice of mindfulness. The guided nature of the session gives support to the clients’ intentions to relax and enter into a safe place where lasting transformation is possible.

Essentially, meditation and hypnosis are limbs from the same ancient tree with her roots deep into the collective subconscious, and while their techniques and perceived benefits may differ slightly, the outcome on the whole is largely the same; distancing oneself from the limitations of the ego and accessing our truly limitless nature."

To synthesize the experience of remembering through hypnosis and meditation, Grace and I co-created the guided hypnotic meditation below, which allows you to unlock the ancient wisdom of our past that is within all of us, ready to be accessed, as we are ready.

Liberation Frequency #16: Discussing 'DMT and the Soul of Prophecy' with Rick Strassman

Throughout my life my dreams and intuition have served as a "navigation system" of sorts, helping to guide, but also alerting me as to what's to come. I've battled with the premonitions I've had, the predicitions that have come to fruition, and an extremely strong intuitive nature that (at times) can be a heavy cross to bear. It wasn't until 2012, that I "came out of the closet" with what I've experienced, and Rick Strassman's work has been an integral part in facilitating the understanding of the science behind mystical experiences - and just why these experiences may occur. 

While the purpose of our paths on this journey called life continues to reveal itself on a daily basis, the heroic efforts of brilliant minds like Dr. Strassman allows for an understanding of the synthesis of science and spirit - which is helping pave the path to a "courageous new civilization". 

I am extremely excited to share this interview, and enlighten our audience to Dr. Strassman's work. His book, 'DMT: The Spirit Molecule', which many of you may be familiar with, is an indepth account of what happened over a 5 year clinical study where he he administered approximately 400 doses of DMT (a chemical produced in our brains, present in all human life) to 60 human volunteers at the University of New Mexico's School of Medicine in Albuquerque. This study helped reveal how this chemical may change our understanding of the human experience, and the "boundaries" of consciousness. 

Since 'DMT: The Spirit Molecule' was released in 2000, Rick has put out a documentary of the same name (see: DMT: The Spirit Molecule) as well as several other books which explore this topic of conversation.  In our interview, we discuss the work leading up to his latest book, 'DMT and the Soul of Prophecy', which explores the relationship between DMT and the prophetic state. If you are interested in purchasing a signed/inscribed copy of 'DMT and the Soul of Prophecy', you may do so directly by visiting this link.

Star of Bethlehem? Jupiter and Venus Converge Tonight, June 30th

This evening, Venus and Jupiter will appear in the sky just a third of a degree apart - so close that you can cover them both with the tip of an outstretched finger. Sky & Telescope suggests that this rare conjunction of planets was perhaps what was known as the "Star of Bethlehem" (aka: the star of Christ) in 3 and 2 BC, and according to Pat Hartigan (an astronomer at Rice University) this particular conjunction will be the best one we will have for over a decade, rivaled only by one on March 1, 2023, which will not be quite as close.

The conjunction is set to appear in the west-northwest as soon as it gets dark. According to CBS News

"To the eye they'll look like a double star," said Kelly Beatty, a senior editor at Sky & Telescope magazine. "Anyone who hasn't glanced at the evening sky for a while will be surprised by how dramatically tight the pairing is."

They will be easy to spot as the brightest objects in the sky, after the sun and moon. Venus, appearing as a crescent, will be even brighter than its neighbor. Not far to their upper left, appearing much fainter, is Regulus, the alpha star in the constellation Leo.

They will remain no greater than 2 degrees apart - a thumb's width at arm's length - until July 4.

While any metaphysical or spiritual implications are speculative, one thing is for sure - this cosmic event should not be missed!

Exploring 'DMT and the Soul of Prophecy: A New Science of Spiritual Revelation in the Hebrew Bible' with Rick Strassman

In 1990, Rick Strassman MD began his ground-breaking research on psychedelics, in particular N, N-dimethyltryptamine (aka: DMT). For those who may be unfamiliar, DMT is present in all of human life, as this chemical is produced by the pineal gland in our brains, and it is believed that this chemical is responsible for naturally occuring "psychedelic" states (ie: birth, death, near-death, psychosis, and mystical experiences). During the course of a five-year study, he administered approximately 400 doses of DMT to 60 human volunteers at the University of New Mexico's School of Medicine in Albuquerque. His book, 'DMT: The Spirit Molecule', is an indepth account of what happened over those 5 years, and how this chemical may change our understanding of the human experience, and the "boundaries" of consciousness. 

Since 'DMT: The Spirit Molecule' was released in 2000, Rick has put out a documentary of the same name (see: DMT: The Spirit Molecule) as well as several other books which explore this topic of conversation.  We recently had the pleasure of interviewing him and discussing his latest book, 'DMT and the Soul of Prophecy', which explores the relationship between DMT and the prophetic state. The book is expands upon the relationship between science and spirit, and elaborates on the "theoneurological" model of spiritual experience (see explanation below):

Naturally occurring DMT may produce prophecy-like states of consciousness and thus represent a bridge between biology and religious experience 

• Reveals the striking similarities between the visions of the Hebrew prophets and the DMT state described by Strassman’s research volunteers 

• Explains how prophetic and psychedelic states may share biological mechanisms 

• Presents a new top-down “theoneurological” model of spiritual experience 

After completing his groundbreaking research chronicled in DMT: The Spirit Molecule, Rick Strassman was left with one fundamental question: What does it mean that DMT, a simple chemical naturally found in all of our bodies, instantaneously opens us to an interactive spirit world that feels more real than our own world? 

When his decades of clinical psychiatric research and Buddhist practice were unable to provide answers to this question, Strassman began searching for a more resonant spiritual model. He found that the visions of the Hebrew prophets--such as Ezekiel, Moses, Adam, and Daniel--were strikingly similar to those of the volunteers in his DMT studies. Carefully examining the concept of prophecy in the Hebrew Bible, he characterizes a “prophetic state of consciousness” and explains how it may share biological and metaphysical mechanisms with the DMT effect. 

Examining medieval commentaries on the Hebrew Bible, Strassman reveals how Jewish metaphysics provides a top-down model for both the prophetic and DMT states, a model he calls “theoneurology.” Theoneurology bridges biology and spirituality by proposing that the Divine communicates with us using the brain, and DMT--whether naturally produced or ingested--is a critical factor in such visionary experience. This model provides a counterpoint to “neurotheology,” which proposes that altered brain function simply generates the impression of a Divine-human encounter. 

Theoneurology addresses issues critical to the full flowering of the psychedelic drug experience. Perhaps even more important, it points the way to a renewal of classical prophetic consciousness, the soul of Hebrew Bible prophecy, as well as unexpected directions for the evolution of contemporary spiritual practice.

Our interview with Rick will be live on our YouTube channel tomorrow afternoon. If you are interested in purchasing a signed/inscribed copy of 'DMT and the Soul of Prophecy' you may do so directly by visiting this link, and to learn more about this book, please watch the video below.


7 Must-See Psychedelic Fantasy Films

Fantasy is defined as "the faculty or activity of imagining things, especially things that are impossible or improbable", and (while controversial) the psychedelic experience expands our consciousness to perceive this impossible/improbable world. While the psychedelic experience is not for everyone, the medium of film can evoke this same feeling.

In the video below, we have compiled a list of some of our favorite fantasy films that expand consciousness, and visually enlighten.  If you enjoyed this video, and would like to see more like this, be sure to subscribe to our channel by clicking the button at the end of the article!

Full Moon in Capricorn on Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

During the month of June, Jupiter (king of the gods) and Venus (the goddess of love) have been "dancing together" in the skies, but will cumilate on June 30th, as the passionate/powerful energy will be synthesized, as the full moon (in Capricorn) appears, on Wednesday July 1st.

While the full moon tends to make us extra sensitive - this one in particular is sure to make our emotions, and desires kick into high gear. The significance of the full moon in Capricorn in particular, is to bring us the confidence to pursue what is in our hearts/what we really love, and the strength to follow through with what we desire. 

Love goes beyond who you are passionate about, love is also about what you are passionate about - so this is a good time to get clear on what exactly your passions are, and how you would like to see them manifest in a bigger/better way. A good "mantra" for this full moon, is "if not now, then when...if not you, then who?".

Although the new/full moons allow for a certain vortex of energy to be open to give that extra energy to make our wishes come true, the best action is traction - and the only way to really become what we wish for, is to be. So, remember, while these energies are strong, it is your strength that will see what you desire to its completion.

 

4 Video Clips That Will Completely Change the Way You Look at the World

We've created a video with 4 different clips about consciousness that will completely change the way you look at the world. In the coming weeks we hope to bring more videos like this to you, so be sure to subscribe to our channel by clicking the button at the end of the article to stay updated on all of our latest uploads.

The first clip, is taken from Charlie Chaplin's 1940 feature film, The Great Dictator, and this cathartic monologue states:

"I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor. That’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone - if possible - Jew, Gentile - black man - white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness - not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way.

Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost....

The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men - cries out for universal brotherhood - for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world - millions of despairing men, women, and little children - victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people.

To those who can hear me, I say - do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed - the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. .....

Soldiers! don’t give yourselves to brutes - men who despise you - enslave you - who regiment your lives - tell you what to do - what to think and what to feel! Who drill you - diet you - treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men - machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate - the unloved and the unnatural! Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty!

In the 17th Chapter of St Luke it is written: “the Kingdom of God is within man” - not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people have the power - the power to create machines. The power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure.

Then - in the name of democracy - let us use that power - let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world - a decent world that will give men a chance to work - that will give youth a future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not fulfil that promise. They never will!

Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people! Now let us fight to fulfil that promise! Let us fight to free the world - to do away with national barriers - to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness. Soldiers! in the name of democracy, let us all unite!"

Watching this video now, especially with the current climate surrounding our world, the lesson we must carry is the notion of finding communion by uniting despite our differences. The tie that binds us all is the desire for love, acceptance, and freedom. When we dissolve the barrier of ego, and see one another for who we really are, we can overpower any obstacle and create the world we wish to see come to fruition.

The second clip comes from My Dinner with Andre, a film from 1981. This conversation is yet another self fulfilling prophetic piece of art. It provokes the question of what "freedom" really means, and forces us to ask the question if we are prisoners, or if we are really are our own wardens?

The third clip is from the film Network, a 1976 movie about a fictional television network.  The central character, Howard Beale "wakes up" and realizes just how messed up things have gotten, and he "is mad as hell, and not going to take it anymore". This clip segues into the final video which was taken Dylan Ratigan's 2003 stand against the corruption of the central banking system. He, like Beale, seemed to have experienced his own awakening, and decided to take a stand by voicing his opinion on just how unethical the current states of affairs has gotten.  

When we look to the past, and think about our present, we must analyze our current individual stance on the nature of our reality, so that we can create a better future for the common good.

All of life is thesis, antithesis, and synthesis. Moving forward, if we synthesize the opposing issues we face - we can find a proper balance and harmony that can bring us into a new renaissance. All change comes from within, and once the within is worked on, the without will begin to transform. Look within, identify your purpose, and move forward in confidence. The past gives us clues, the present gives us clarity, and the future will succeed if we proceed from a level of higher consciousness with confidence in our conviction

Exploring the Laws of the Universe: The Principle of Gender

The law of the universe we will explore next is the law (principle) of gender being present in all living things. There is always a masculine and there is always a feminine, there is always the matron and patron. The call of this allowing is the allowing of the universe’s mind to become manifest in equal energies throughout experience.

The male energies are the energies of the left, and carry the call of logic, reason, numbers, and science. The male energy requires fact to believe and does not believe without fact. The male mind being made manifest in all creation is the masculine energy of the logical side of the mind.

The female mind is the right side, responsible for creativity, creation, intuition, love, and the art of illusion. The female mind will believe without fact and feel instead of looking for logic as to why. The balance of gender is found in all living beings and the reasoning is to allow the made opposites to become one in their creation.

SYNCHRONICITY, OWLS & THE UFO RABBIT HOLE

While filming in San Francisco for our documentary film, Time is Art, on June 21st, 2013 in the Mission District a four second clip of a UFO was captured on our DSLR camera. When something mysterious happens, my initial reaction is to try to understand why and what exactly it could mean (since everything happens for a reason). Was this confirmation that other beings outside our reality exist?  I for one, don’t believe for one second that Earth is the center of the universe.  It’s a bizarre thing to capture a UFO in the middle of the day, and at the very least, we have something that may help others get the conversation going about the fact that we are not alone. It was kind of like when people receive their own private crop circles in their backyards.

Most people assume it just isn’t what it appears to be (including ourselves initially). People shut down because we have no frame of reference, we can’t explain the speed or the tilt, or more importantly, how was it even filmed when no one actually saw it. That can be explained if you understand holographic cloaking technology, however, its still the question of, how was it filmed, and what are the chances that the camera would be pointed in the right direction?

Since no one in our group saw the UFO, some people have suggested perhaps it was moving too fast for the naked eye, or that it was in a time warp which is not entirely a three dimensional time/space. There’s also holographic cloaking technology as mentioned before, which again might explain why no one saw it, too.  Whether this is in fact a real spacecraft or just a government probe using technology they don’t admit to having, at the very least it has lead to some fascinating discoveries.  According to a conference I recently attended, there are anti-gravity crafts being tested around the Bay area.  But that would mean other people would have seen the UFO which at this point doesn’t seem to be the case.

Throughout the filming of our project, Time is Art, and the experimentation process, the crew experienced many synchronicities, which are also themes in the film.  We were focusing on primarily owls, but also labyrinths, butterflies and honeycombs. It just seemed like fun at first but over time the energy became more and more emotional and intense between the group.  I was not aware exactly why I was feeling this way.  After several days of seeing these images in San Francisco, (on book covers, t-shirts, earrings) the day we filmed in the Mission District near 160 Lilac alley, a neighborhood famous for its wall to wall graffiti murals, something very strange happened.

The owls and butterflies were everywhere. There must have been 6 or 7 murals with references to owls, some of them had the hypnotized eyes, some looked sinister and some looked half asleep. Whether the artist knew what they were painting or not, I felt as if the three owls represented the three stages of our current consciousness – mind controlled/zombified, angry, tired/complacent. And down the rabbit hole we go.

Unless you’ve had a paranormal experience, most of this stuff doesn’t really resonate. I’ve had a very frightening and strange experience with entities in the past while I was in a very remote area of Eastern Germany in 1998. My story is actually published in this book called The Synchronicity Highway by Trish & Rob MacGregor.   According to my research, owls can be vehicles for shape shifters and some people say are also used in “screen memories” in abduction situations. The entities erase your memory of being taken and/or shape shift and essentially follow you around. My personal feeling is entities with more advanced technology can watch anyone just like the NSA or any other secret government organization has been doing for a very long time. Many researchers say other beings aren’t any worse than human beings, we are all capable of doing horrible things. We can also choose to be in service to the greater good. Or not, hence, Planet Earth being the ultimate experiment.  Some beings are simply more ethical than the others, or what researchers call positively polarized.

For native peoples, the Owl animal spirit also symbolizes wisdom and knowledge.  Its one of those symbols that over time has been potentially used to evoke the opposite effect, similar to what happened with the Illuminati and other secret “illuminated” organizations.  At Bohemian Grove (which is near Muir Woods National Forest) the elite participate in the “CREMATION OF CARE CEREMONY”, a ritual that is held in front of a 40′ high stone owl. Whats interesting is I had no idea that this even existed until I took a photo of a sign that said Bohemian Grove while we were filming in Muir Woods a few days after the UFO situation.  After some research, I discovered the occult elite think it’s fun to play around with “Black Magic”, something they don’t fully understand.  I have a hard time imagining Richard Nixon, who regularly attended the meetings at Bohemian Grove, having any understanding of esoteric knowledge.  More on this later.

Back to the Mission District murals. Besides the owls, there were many Day of the Dead pieces  and several Aztec murals. One mural in particular literally sucked me in. Near the entrance of one of the last alleyways I came across a very interesting piece. There was a tiny owl in a tree and next to it was a Hopi Indian medicine manwith light energy emanating from his hands in the direction of a hybrid human/alien. For UFO researchers and abductees it is a widely held belief that there are several types of ETs who have either ruined their civilizations or have just naturally gone extinct and therefore need our sperm/DNA to attempt to keep their races from dying out, perhaps resulting in some sort of malevolent hybrid race. The key to the whole UFO rabbit hole is coming to terms with how ridiculously complicated is it. Jim Marr’s lectures are a good place to start.

After seeing this somewhat disturbing UFO mural I walked back to where the rest of the crew was. Only a few minutes after I returned, the UFO was captured on the DSLR.   The UFO looked very similar to what was depicted in the Hopi Indian mural. We all felt very strange and Jennifer Palmer, actually said she almost passed out after we wrapped the shoot. She wrote a blog post about it here.

Truth is indeed stranger than fiction. For me, the best explanation is Dolores Cannon’s in her book “Custodians“.  Dolores Cannon has accumulated all of this vast knowledge from her forty years as a pioneering hypnotherapist, past-life regressionist, counselor and healer. She has performed thousands of hypnotherapy sessions with a whole cross section of clients who have revealed to her their origins as extra-terrestrial beings on other planets, in other universes, and in other lives. Her theory is played out in many Star Trek movies and episodes. (Did you know that the creator of Star Trek, Gene Roddenberry researched background material for his series with a distinguished international group, using a medium who channeled “The Nine”?) According to the information gleaned from her clients, Mrs. Cannon discovered that there is an advanced race of extra-terrestrials, or light beings, known simply as “the Custodians”, who were responsible for creating the planet Earth and all life found on it, billions upon billions of years ago.

According to Dolores Cannon, Star Trek is real and we are living that reality but the government has somehow convinced us its not happening. There are also abductees such as Sherry Wilde who are convinced that there is also yet another hybrid program that was created to help 5th dimensional light beings manifest here on our planet to aid the ill-informed human species and help end the destruction of the biosphere. The mural above seems to depict this possibility. Whatever the case may be, I’m personally convinced the planet would have been blown up in the 1940s & 50s if there had not been some sort of intervention. The geniuses that run the MIC (military industrial complex) set the nuclear launch codes at 8 zeroes for fuck sake. ETs or interdimensionals MUST have shut down nuclear war headsDavid Wilcock and many other investigative journalists and authors make tv shows, blog posts about this kind of stuff every day.

We saw the recording of the UFO only after we had returned to Brooklyn a week or so later. The clip shows the craft moving very slowly tilted sideways. It moves behind a tree just as a bird at twice the speed crosses the frame. How is that possible to record just a four second clip right as a UFO crosses the frame right after seeing  a massive UFO mural? Divine intervention perhaps?

UFO researcher Mike Clelland presented our footage recently at a UFO Congress in Arizona and suggested that we might possibly abductees. There was no missing time so I highly doubt that was possible. However, the energy was strange and we all felt a lot of anxiety during the week of filming. Of course producing a low budget film is always stressful. However, it is worth mentioning that Maia, co-producer of the film was “visited” by a non-human intelligence on Halloween near Pine Bush in the Hudson River Valley. We are indeed not alone.

The sign post that read “Bohemian Grove” still to this day sticks in my head and down the rabbit hole I go. This realization later on lead me from one article to the next about this strange meeting similar to the Bilderberg Group in which male leaders from the ruling class, (no women are allowed) including George Bush and Nixon meet every year. The next thing I know I’m reading more Jim Marr’s books and watching his presentations along with Richard Dolan and many other articulate scholars that explain these unbelievable truths as naturally as if they are talking about the weather.

Often from the UFO rabbit hole, I get sucked down the dark hole of the occult elite and the realization that they have hijacked various symbols for their bizarre rituals.  This in turn leads me to Vigilant Citizen’s blog and the interpretation of Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut (a direct reference to the occult elite) as well as the 80’s film, Labyrinth. Both films are extremely creepy and mysterious. According to the writer, they explain the practice calledMonarch Mind Control in which various young women are manipulated by a male “handler”. Marilyn Monroe was apparently one of the most famous to be programmed, (potentially used as a way to control JFK).  Judith Moore wrote one of the most inspiring books ever written about surviving trauma and abuse at the hands of the U.S.  Air Force mind control programs.

Common symbols like butterflies, broken mirrors, labyrinths, the “all seeing eye” and even honeycombs come up over and over again in various films and pop music videos. Jennifer who was also there while the UFO was recorded co-creator of the project, said after her STE (spiritually transformative experience) she felt that there was something profound she needed to learn from 2001 Space Odyssey. I felt the same way about all three of these films. Only until now do I understand why. Intuition is a very powerful feeling.  I won’t get into that too much, but Jay Weidnerhas some pretty incredible information to back up the fact that Kubrick helped N.A.S.A. cover up what really happened during th 1964 moon landing which was being shot at the same time as 2001 Space Odyssey (the film paralleled the Apollo Mission). Another theory is N.A.S.A. saw other entities who had already set up shop on the moon which they clearly could not film so they had to stage it. The fact that Kubrick had access to a million dollar camera lens in the 1960’s that was given to him by N.A.S.A. is enough to ask some serious questions.

One thing continued to lead to another, and another and another.  I also came across the UFO Hunters episode (which got the show cancelled) about the Dulce Underground base near an Apache Indian reservation where a worker allegedly saw beings experimenting  with human/alien hybrids. Star Trek only seemed to scratch the surface of this bizarre reality we have created.

My most outlandish explanation for the UFO clip is that perhaps our higher self/spirit guides recorded this holographic projection (since we missed actually seeing it in person) to prove their existence not only to me but to others that are on the fence. Perhaps it was also to help me (and others) connect the dots?

These kind of synchronicities have also opened my mind to the realization that not only do we have entities helping us but we have many working against us. Humanity is in a very deep sleep. We are obsessed with the latest technology and distracted by celebrities, materialism and mainstream media.  Its clear that we’ve grown more technologically advanced but as a whole we have not grown spiritually in the past few hundred years. It’s possible that contact is happening in other indirect ways, perhaps through the occult elite who are in complete control of our current world view. Is it possible that they are controlled/manipulated and continue their practice of manipulating young women and children in the very same way?  It’s a scary thought but very possible given the enormous poverty throughout the world, the shrinking middle class,  the Vatican’s ongoing corruption and child abuseMonsanto and Big Oil’s infiltration of the government and programs  such as the NSA, the 9/11 inside job,  Operation Paperclip and MKULTRA (I could go on and on). Perhaps its a crucial step in the awakening process for people to understand these disturbing truths because if they are “Star Seeds” their purpose is to break off from the mainstream in order to aid in creating a new paradigm.

In terms of how we decided to approach the use of the UFO clip in the film, we ended up creating exactly what was the original idea: a montage piece that aligned magically with Jennifer, the writer and narrator’s exact words.

 

We are all made of star stuff, technologically advanced entities and less advanced humans ultimately come from the same place. Whether or not all the beings in the universe are spiritually advanced, we cannot fear our “masters” as they feed off that kind of negative energy, so instead we need to become accustomed to their techniques and ways of interacting with us, though foreign to us and sometimes ethically questionable, this is the reality we must face.  It’s a very similar process to how the native peoples made “peace” with the white man when he came and wiped out their culture and their lands. The symbols and synchronicities we saw over and over again was just another way the universe helped me to “connect the dots.” The curtain between realities is thinning and we will begin to experience more and more of these multidimensional beings and crafts as the dimensions overlap. They key is to continue to grow spiritually, to spread knowledge and empower others to take control of this new reality.

Barbara Hand Clow, an incredible author and seer/shaman wrote in her book The Mind Chronicles:

The Sumerian masters once had great power over us and interfered with human life in the remote past but have no power in the cosmos. Instead they lurk as poisons in minds of men and women, in the ego, belief systems and judgements coming from memory.

You can also listen to my podcast in which I chat with authors Trish & Rob MacGregor who wrote a book about various abductions and UFO phenomenon. We also talk more about the potential connection betweeen owls and UFOs.

From A Dictionary of Symbols by J.E. Cirlot:
In the Egyptian system of hieroglyphs, the owl symbolizes death, night, cold and passivity. It also pertains to the realm of the dead sun, that is, of the sun which has set below the horizon and which is crossing the lake or sea of darkness.

One other thing to note for those playing around with any kind of ‘black magic” aka Dark Arts:
The owl is often times the medicine of sorcerers and witches. If the owl is your medicine, you will be drawn to magical practices and perhaps explore the dark arts. YOU SHOULD RESIST ANY TEMPTATION TO PRACTICE BLACK MAGIC OR ANY ART THAT TAKES ENERGY AWAY FROM ANOTHER PERSON OR BEING. If you have Owl medicine, these night birds will have a tendency to collect around you, even in the daytime, because they recognize a kinship with you.

Owl medicine is symbolically associated with clairvoyance, astral projection, and magic, both black and white. Owl is called Night Eagle on several medicine wheels used by Amerindian teachers. Traditionally, Owl sits in the East, the place of illumination. Since time immemorial, humanity has been afraid of the night, the dark, and the unseen – waiting fearfully for the first crack of morning light. Conversely, night is Owl’s friend…


Syncing into Death & Finding Infinite Love in the Everyday

What was it that changed you?  What happened to make the first domino of life as you’d come to know it tumble down in a cascade of awakening?  How did you start the process of freeing yourself from the hyper mediated, distracted, Starbucks state of mind of late capitalism, in which we feel privileged to pay lots of money just to exist?

Was it a near death experience, a psychedelic journey, giving birth, or a profound connection to nature that broke open your head?  Maybe you changed your diet, or your gender.   I’ve learned that the difference between the doorways can be immense, and yet they all lead to the same place of revelation, in which the reality of our individual world is broken down, and a new, fuller way of being is recalled and revealed.

For me it was the death of my aunt that opened the portal.  I’d always been close with Nancy.  As a little girl I loved looking through her record collection which included Cat Stevens, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and The Beatles.  I remember staring transfixed at the iconic picture of George Harrison with his palm open and a third eye painted on his face as she explained to me that he was “always her favorite.” When I was older I came out to her before most of my family and brought my girlfriend to stay with her in Barcelona, where we all partied in discotheques and watched old movies in her mirror filled apartment.   The Wizard of OZ, Gone With the Wind…epic tales that filled me with a strange sense of longing, perhaps for my own story that was just beginning.  In that regard Nancy was someone I looked up to, having left behind her shitty but well-paying corporate job in Pennsylvania after falling in love with Barcelona.  She was often struggling to make ends meet, going from one crazy entrepreneurial scheme to another, but she seemed happy to me in a way that other adults were not.  Her life was an adventure, and she was living it fully.

She died the same way—brave, aware, and without regrets.  She was so strong that no one thought it was serious when she first got sick.  After being misdiagnosed over and over and believing that the pain in her shoulder was something a chiropractor or orthopedic shoes could fix, she was finally told that it was lung cancer and it had already spread throughout her body.  It all happened so quickly.  She called me at work one day shortly after we found out and asked me to come to Spain with my mom and brother.  She urged me to hurry.  I can still hear her voice, hollowed out by the pain and uncharacteristically demanding as she made me promise that I would come.  “It’s going to be hard,” she said, “But you will be there to help one another.”

I agreed to come, thinking we’d visit and figure out the strategy for bringing her back with us to the States for treatment.  Despite her insistence that we hurry, not once did I consider that this would be the last time I’d see her.  I told myself she was young and that the diagnosis had just been given.  We were going to fight this thing.

At the time I was working in IT and not sure what, if anything, I was doing to fulfil my dream of being a writer. I’d come to have a very dark view of the world.  I was scared all the time because I knew that even with all the hard work necessary to survive something could happen at any moment that destroyed my life.  My existence of expensive dinners and designer clothes seemed so tenuous, a plot that had been run through a million times before.  I was the clichéd movie character, right before the dramatic moment of stark realization.  I had a lot of anxiety at this time, looking back I think it’s because a part of me knew something was ending. 

A few weeks later, as Nancy lay dying in front of me, my understanding of time and what it meant to exist in it was forever changed.  Everything fit perfectly into place and I could see it, if only for a flash. There was no fear, no final end—only an unending love connecting everyone and everything.  I didn’t see it as much as I felt it—a universal ebb and flow in which we each played our part.

On the one hand witnessing her death made me realize it was a completely natural event; in the same way that we have our first inhalation, there comes a time when we exhale and don’t inhale again.  This was a matter-of-fact, but its actual occurrence was extraordinary, revealing an underlying layer to reality that was beyond what I’d known up until then.  The whole trip was uncanny in nature from its start. A series of synchronicities cast their magical vibe over everything.  This was the first time I had so many of them at one time.  There were many little things, like certain times I kept seeing or words that popped up in multiple places over the course of the day.  But the big ones included meetings with an English speaking doctor who was not working on my aunt’s case but had met her and admitted to being drawn to her and wanting to help.  He “happened” to show up whenever we were at our lowest as we tried to navigate the hospital’s foreign bureaucracy. It didn’t matter if we were in someone’s office, the cafeteria or parking lot—he would just show up out of the blue. Then there were the daisies that seemed to follow us everywhere, from the airport all the way to my aunt’s hospital bed, where she was very particular about keeping a small stuffed doll that was a daisy with a smiling face near her bed at all times, requesting that we fix it if its head wasn’t straight—a task that required regular maintenance as the wire inside the little guy wasn’t strong and he always fell over.   On the night before her death, we noticed that someone—we never found out who-- had replaced the stuffed daisy with a real one that sat bolt upright in a small vase.  I remember that when she died the next morning, I looked over to see that the daisy had slumped its head in a way identical to the stuffed one, which we later found tucked away in the closet. 

On the morning that she passed, we were supposed to be at the airport for our flight home, having heard from the doctors that she had “at least another six months” which gave us time to make arrangements and come back in a few weeks.  As we got in the cab, however, I was filled with the overwhelming need to go back to the hospital.  I urged my mother to let us stop on the way to the airport, just for a quick goodbye.  When we got to her floor the nurses came rushing over in a way that felt like a betrayal after all their calm sauntering on our other visits: “We’ve been trying to call you at the hotel, but they said you already left!” they said.  They were relieved that we had gotten in touch with the front desk after all and were confused when I tried to explain that we hadn’t spoken to anyone at the hotel, and that something unknown had compelled us to comeback.  But I couldn’t explain this with my terrible Spanish. 

The feeling had been one of urgency but also irritation, like the idea of going back was an intense itch across my entire body.  It seemed related to whatever it was that moved around the room when she passed.  There was an exhalation (which something had already told me was going to be the final one) followed by a prolonged silence in which an ever-widening gulf opened between us as it became increasingly clear with each passing moment that she wasn’t going to breathe in again.  Suddenly, something in the room changed—something invisible moved--like a shift in temperature or electrical charge, a force like the near constant wind outside the hospital. I say “like” the wind because it wasn’t wind; it was something at once utterly strange and familiar.  I felt that we all knew what it was without saying—even me, the so-called atheist.   It was a moment of frantic wonder, in which my mother, brother and I were caught mid-sobs, watching as one of the nurses hurried over to the window and quickly cranked open its ancient metal frame.  It rattled several times and then the room became still.

Stunned as I was I tried to explain what I experienced in terms of being emotionally stressed out but upon my return to the States I experienced synchronicity after synchronicity, coming at me rapidly, as though the pent-up force that had been released in that room was following me.  Unsure of what was happening, I decided to treat the syncs as being clues to something I had to figure out.  In spite of increasingly powerful mood springs and energetic shifts, in which I’d either be laid out with exhaustion or up late with a fear of the dark, I tried to be as scientific as possible about my observations, having bracketed off the bias of my shattered state and the very real chance that I was having a nervous breakdown.  My research led me to master numbers, occult symbols and conspiracy theories and as much as I wanted to reject it all as nonsense, the uncanny nature of the persistent syncs forced me to keep an open mind. As I went further and further down the rabbit hole, the world as I knew it changed.

I started to realize that although they seem magical, synchronicities are natural, just like death.  They take us outside of the everyday and reconnect us with the nature that is always just under the surface. The syncs are moments of connection with our natural selves, the one not controlled by clocks or the amount of money we need to make an hour.

I went from book to book, website to website, with the feeling that I was being guided by invisible forces. Perhaps even by Nancy herself.  The possibility that she still existed in some formless form was one I opened up to more and more, especially when it felt as though a friendly hand was guiding me through the city.  Like one time, when I was at a low point and feeling sorry for myself when a sudden cloudburst sent me running into the nearest store, which happened to be a Barnes and Noble.  I walked aimlessly while I dried off and banged my hip against a low lying table of books.  Looking down the first one to catch my eye was Daniel Pinchbeck’s 2012, The Return of Quetzacoatl.  I was meant to learn about these things!  The more I reached out, the more I realized that many people were experiencing the kinds of things I was experiencing.  I found bloggers who wrote about the profound boundary loss that was part of the sync experience (especially if strong weed was involved), in which the outside world seemed to correspond directly to your inner most thoughts.   Their brave and slightly insane writings made me wanted to share my own syncs, something I eventually started doing online and in print.

Did Nancy, either consciously or unconsciously know that witnessing her death would be the catalyst of what can only be called a spiritual awakening in me?  I’ve rejected that idea a long time, because it seemed steeped in my own egoic projections upon an event that was not mine to claim.  But still, there’s a truth to it…had I not experienced her passing I wouldn’t have had the feeling of walking out among those mountains after it was over.  Leaving the hospital and feeling spring everywhere and noticing the little flowers on the dry brown soil and realizing that nothing was ever lost.   I was seeing with a new, clearer vision that seemed directly connected to the searing grief in my chest—and to the synchronicities that were suddenly everywhere.

After years of trying to get the essence of sync down on paper, I finally realized that film’s a better medium to capture the joy inherent in its experience—that deep sense of there being a flowing connection with everyone and everything that’s felt so strongly, even for just a moment.  Written language is too rigid—the nouns and verbs are treated as forever separate, when sync teaches us that this is merely an illusion.  Sync ripples out in a way that film is able to replicate with its layers of moving image and sound.  It’s difficult, if not impossible, to do this justice with words.  As sync would have it, I met the Time is Art (aka, “The Sync Movie”) filmmakers shortly after coming to this realization.

The filmmakers and I resisted trying to explain what synchronicity “means”, and instead filmed the philosophers, artists and healers talking to me about how it informed their work and layered this with imagery and audio from the synchronicities that were permeating the making of the film.  In this way we steered away from the rigidness of a “talking heads” format and attempted instead to create a portal for people to actually experience synchronicity for themselves.  Because this project doesn’t end with the movie, we hope people will share the syncs they get from the film, and perhaps be filmed themselves for our ongoing #SyncStories web series.

A new world is coming.  In the three years of making this film I think of all the other journeys that have been happening in sync with my own:  all of the first yoga classes, the first time reading Jose Arguelles or watching a Terrence McKenna video, the first time getting high, the first planted seed, the first healthy meal, the first time creating something they wanted to share and the first time they see the person they fall in love with... There are so many openings, millions of them.  People are waking up and learning how to live and love and begin the long work of repairing their individual relationship to the Earth and finding balance in their lives and in their communities.  It’s not on the news but it’s happening. This film documents a shift in ideas taking place on the level of scientists and thinkers like Graham Hancock, Amy Lansky, Rupert Sheldrake, Jill Purce, Daniel Pinchbeck and others that’s simultaneously being channeled through artists and musicians like Alex and Allyson Grey, East Forest and Chris Soria.  Sync is helping us come back into awareness of the feminine power of the earth—merging it with the masculine know-how of the technosphere.  I believe everyone who is alive now was invited to play a part in a great opening into a healthier, more inclusive and loving way of being that’s in balance with the Earth.  This film is a product of our amazing time.



Spirit Animal of the Week: The Stork

The Spirit Animal to be your guide this week is the made spirit named the stork. The stork is the bird who wades in water before he flies. He walks through the muck and mud in order to find his food, and once he is full, he flies to his next place of rest.

Letting this spirit be your guide is to understand that you must wade through "mud" at times in order to receive your spiritual nutrition - but understand, you're only being led to a better next place, which in time you will fly to.

This animal as your guide is to serve as the lesson that the waters of life are filled with earth (mud), but the earth is only put there to ground you before you fly. 

Liberation Frequency #15: Time is Art - Sychronicity and the Collective Dream with Katy Walker and Jennifer Palmer

In this episode of Liberation Frequency (see below), Jennifer Sodini interviews Katy Walker and Jennifer Palmer of the transmedia documentary, Time is Art

Time is Art follows the story of Jennifer Palmer, a corporate IT specialist-turned-writer, is compelled to make sense of the mysterious and powerful energy she felt at her aunt’s deathbed. A series of strange coincidences leads her on an exploration of synchronicity – the concept that all beings are interconnected, and that time is not so much a chronology as it is an infinite cycle. Considering herself something of a skeptic, Jennifer treads the fine line between nervous breakdown and ecstatic revelation as she seeks out scholars, shamans, artists, and community activists in her search for answers. Together, they explore a reality where time is transformed from a unit that can be measured and commodified -“Time is money”- to an experience of oneness with the natural rhythms of nature and the universe. It is here that the writer discovers that time is, in fact, art.

Our interview explores synchroncity, consciousness, and what a new paradigm of society could look like if we did follow the "Time is Art" ethos. 

Time is Art is currently trying to raise funds for the completion of the film through an Indiegogo campaign, all donation levels are appreciated!

Tarot Card of the Week (6/24 - 7/1): XX - Judgement

Tarot Card of the Week (6/24 - 7/1): XX - Judgement

Alphabet: Sh, Shin in Hebrew

Numerical Value: 300

Astrological Nature: Fire (Spirit)

XX - Judgement: Responsibility for the past to progress in the future.

The card of Judgment is the ballad of the death of a star in order to become a new life. The star judges if the new life is necessary in order to be the fated role that results in a big change. The change that is to occur when a star dies and is then born is the call of the transformation of fear into love, and this is the definition of a miracle.

Stars falling in the sky signal miracles on their way to earth. Being the call to be the star then to be the life yet again is a sacred call of the need for a change to occur before destruction. Being the called star to help the Earth is the duty of a celestial being who is intent on fulfilling a purpose bigger than their life. The celestial being is the being that comes to feed the hungry masses that are not yet aware that they can feed themselves, and to bring spiritual wealth during a time of lack-mentality. We are to move forward into a century of light, after a very dark age , and this is the call of the gilded age of the cycle of time, but the gilded age always comes before the Dark Age is over. Before the dark there is the call of the iron age, that is the age of industrial revolution, then the darkness comes because people abuse their call to create, then the destruction happens in order to bring order after chaos, to bring light to the dark and to feed the masses with a new way of thought in order to provide spiritual nourishment to dharma of the karmic cycle of time.

The destiny of time will always tick, and the clock never stops completely, but history is now being written, and you are going to be a part of this never ending story whether you realize it or not, but the role you play is your choice and your choice alone.

Think first of the future, then of your self, think second after yourself, of the impact you have on others and allow your soul to guide you, not your ego. Quiet the ego, and think from your soul. Mentioned ballad of Gilded Age is to sing a beautiful song, do not be scared. Only be prepared with your new coat of armor, and your awareness of your self, and do not sigh in lamenting of the dark time, but instead know that in the dark, a new dawn forms.

Esoteric Encyclopedia Entry of the Week: Amulet

An amulet is thought to be a magic charm of sorts, worn for the alleged power of protection from danger, negative energies, and injury. The word "amulet", comes from the Latin amuletum; meaning "an object that protects a person from trouble". Although seemingly the same thing, amulets differ from talismans, in that, a talisman is believed to bring good luck, but amulets are primarily for protection. From archaelogical evidence, we have found that amulets were very common in the ancient cultures of Biblical times, especially amongst Pagans.

Amulets are usually made from crystals/gems, coins, pendants, and rings. Even words in the form of a magical spell or incantation are used as an "amulet" to repel evil or bad luck.  

According to Lucky Mojo, this list includes some of the most popular amulets worn for protection:

WHEN YOU HAVE THE RIGHT VIBE, IT’S NOT A COINCIDENCE: SYNCHRONICITIES, ENERGY HEALING, AND OTHER STRANGENESS IN THE FIELD

The following is excerpted from: Active Consciousness: Awakening the Power Within[1], released from R.L.Ranch Press.

One piece of evidence for the holographic nature of nonstandard fields that have been proposed in recent years — the zero-point field (a candidate for the unified field [2]), the psi field of psychic phenomena, Ervin Laszlo’s Akashic field [3], and the morphic field proposed by Rupert Sheldrake [4] — is that they all share a common feature: sensitivity to similarity in vibration.

If a holographic image has many different holograms embedded within it, shining a laser of a specific frequency upon it will cause only those holograms made with lasers of the same frequency to stand out.  That’s because things with the same vibration naturally resonate and reinforce one another — just as two violin strings at the same pitch resonate with one another. This property of resonance has [also] been used to explain how each of us might interact with mysterious fields like the psi or Akashic fields… People pick up only that with which they personally “resonate.” Each individual’s resonant frequency, determined by their life experience, physical body, and energy body, limits what they can perceive.

Biologist Rupert Sheldrake’s theory of morphic resonance also depends upon similarity in vibration. Members of the same species, being “on the samewavelength,” are able to tap into information that pertains uniquely to them. And while members of an entire species might be able to tune into a fairly broad spectrum of frequencies (think of Carl Jung’s notion of the collective unconsciousthat humans supposedly tap into [5]), smaller, more tightly connected groups — such as members of the same family or loving couples — resonate in more focused zones of vibration; they have access to their own “private frequency.” In fact, Sheldrake goes even further and suggests that morphic fields can explain how human memory operates. Instead of being stored in our brains, he suggests that memories are stored in the morphic field. Our brains then pick them up via resonance, like radios tuning to their own private stations.

The existence and importance of similarity in vibration has also popped up in psi experiments. For example, individuals gifted at psychokinesis — the ability to affect physical objects with the mind — have described the experience as a feeling of resonance with those objects. A fascinating body of evidence has also been uncovered by Dean Radin and his colleague Roger Nelson at Princeton’s PEAR lab… [R]esearchers at PEAR found that connected couples can influence random event generators (REGs) more effectively than individuals working alone. Because of this phenomenon, Radin and Nelson decided to test for even larger field effects by using these random devices as “antennae.” First they placed REGs at events where people were all focused on the same thing and therefore “vibrating” similarly-for example, at music festivals, religious events, and even at the Academy Awards. The results were as predicted; these venues did indeed cause the machines’ outputs to deviate from the norm [6, 7].

Then, in 1997, they decided to place REGs at fifty locations all over the world, run them continuously, and see if they could pick up on major world events. The results were astounding. Over the next ten years, Radin and Nelson studied the machines’ reactions to 205 major world events and discovered that they did indeed respond to events that were intense on a global level — especially those that were tragic. The most striking effects occurred in response to the events on 9/11, which caused the largest daily average correlation between the machines’ outputs. Even more amazing, this correlation became noticeable a few hours before the first of the twin towers was hit! [8, 9] An instance of collective precognition?

Whereas world events less horrific than 9/11 probably evoke more varied vibratory responses in people (and therefore do not resonate and amplify each other as well), truly frightening events tend to evoke a more common, coherent response. As this study showed, when nearly all of the people on Earth “got onto the same wavelength” on 9/11, even machines noticed…

Synchronicity and Fields of Meaning

Similarity in vibration has also been used to explain the phenomenon ofsynchronicity — “coincidences” of seemingly unrelated events that share a common meaning… [A] well-known illustration of this phenomenon was described by psychiatrist Carl Jung, the originator of the notion of synchronicity [10]. One of Jung’s patients was recounting her dream about a golden scarab beetle when he heard a rapping on the window. When he opened it, a rose chafer beetle — the insect most similar to a scarab in Jung’s region — flew into the room. Jung quickly put two and two together. He realized that the mythological meaning of the scarab — an ancient Egyptian symbol for rebirth — was highly pertinent to his patient’s problems. And this was also the reason why the insect had appeared in waking life.

The phenomenon of synchronicity demonstrates a key point — the universe may not be operating like a cold, meaningless machine after all. Instead, the reality we experience each day may be flooded with fields of meaning. One field might embody the horror and violence of 9/11. Another field might be associated with a hope for rebirth. Each field of meaning has a particular vibration to it, andobjects, individuals, emotions, dreams, and events with similar vibrations will tend to resonate with one another and then co-occur. This is what creates synchronicities. In fact, various theories of quantum physics require the existence of synchronicities [11]…

Think about it. There may be another fundamental mechanism at play in our universe besides cause and effect. Most of us think that everything that occurs in our world is due to some causal mechanism.  A causes B causes C. However, synchronicity — the co-occurrence of events within the same field of meaning — may be another fundamental reason why things tend to happen. Many things in life that we think are due to cause-and-effect or mere coincidence may actually be due to synchronicity.

Here’s an example that occurred while I was writing this book. My husband Steve and I had long admired Rupert Sheldrake’s work on morphic fields but had never met him. To us, he was a brilliant scientist living far away in England. However, in September 2008, just as I was working on the section of this book that describes his work, Steve got word that Sheldrake would be giving a talk at his research laboratory at Sun Microsystems. Now please understand; talks about things like the morphic field are not commonplace in computer research labs. In fact, Sheldrake’s talk was poorly attended. But it just so happened that one of the lab’s researchers had met Sheldrake in Scotland and had invited him to speak the next time he was in our area. When Steve heard about Sheldrake’s visit, he asked if I could also attend, and we both received an invitation to have lunch with him the next day. Before I could even finish writing about Rupert Sheldrake, I was sitting and having lunch with him! Coincidence? Or synchronicity?…

A Meaningful Cure

The powerful influence of similarity in vibration has also made its way into healing. In fact, it is the very foundation of homeopathy — an alternative medical system originally developed in Germany in the early 1800s. The word “homeopathy” literally means similar (homeo) suffering (pathy), and practitioners of homeopathy choose medicines for their patients based on a principle of cure called the Law of Similars. This principle can be described as follows:

If a substance is shown experimentally to cause a specific pattern of emotional, physical, and behavioral symptoms in healthy test subjects, then that substance can be prepared so that it can cure individuals suffering from the same pattern of symptoms.

In other words, homeopathy is the science of healing based on similarity of vibration. The Law of Similars essentially says: “likes cure likes.” Bring two things of like vibration together — a remedy and a patient — and the effect will be a cure of the patient’s disease.

Here’s a simple illustration. We all know the common effects of drinking coffee:  wakefulness, a mind full of thoughts, excited happiness, acute senses, and sometimes heart palpitations and diarrhea. These symptoms are manifestations of the vibration of coffee, and coffee imparts these qualities to those who drink it. Now, if a patient comes to a homeopath seeking help for chronic insomnia, and their insomnia is characterized by an overactive mind, excitement, acuteness of the senses, heart palpitations, and diarrhea, it is likely that the homeopath will prescribe Coffea Cruda — a remedy prepared from coffee. That’s because this patient manifests the same vibrational qualities as coffee. And if the remedy is truly homeopathic to the patient — that is, if coffee’s symptoms match his or her overall emotional, mental, and physical state — it has the potential to completely cure their insomnia, not just palliate it as a sleeping pill would do.

Of course, the most controversial thing about homeopathy is not the Law of Similars, but the way in which homeopathic remedies are made. The process, calledpotentization, involves a sequence of steps in which a substance is repeatedly diluted and vigorously shaken. In fact, for most remedies, these dilutions are so extreme that they do not contain even a single molecule of the original substance! Nevertheless, homeopaths have found that the higher the dilution, the more potent a remedy can be. They believe this is possible because the energetic signature of a substance is captured by the potentization process. In other words, potentization enables the innate vibrational quality of a substance in nature to be unleashed and harnessed. It is this vibration that evokes the symptoms caused by a remedy, and it is also this vibratory signature that enables the remedy to cure a similar vibratory state in a patient. Like vibrations cure like vibrations…

Water: A Potent Carrier of Information

Although homeopathy has been the target of skeptics and critics since it was developed by physician Samuel Hahnemann in the early 1800s, open-minded scientists are finally beginning to get an inkling of how the remedies might be working. Recent studies have shown that the encoding of information in homeopathic dilutions is not about their chemical composition; it’s more about the bonding structures between the molecules within them. Apparently, the shaking process (also called succussion) performed during homeopathic potentization is the critical step that develops these structures.

In 2007, a prominent researcher in the field of structured water, Professor Rustum Roy of Pennsylvania State University, showed for the first time that extreme homeopathic dilutions are not mere water, but highly structured arrangements of water molecules. In fact, various types of instruments in Roy’s laboratory were able to pick up the distinct signatures of different remedies, even at levels of dilution in which no remedy substance likely remained [12]. Homeopathic experience has shown that these unique signatures can then be transmitted to dry pills, and that the power and distinct effects of these pills remain stable indefinitely if they are stored properly…

Interestingly, the potentization process can be used to capture the energetic signature of any substance, not just those used to make homeopathic remedies. This has been shown repeatedly by several independent scientists in replicated studies. For example, consider the work of Jacques Benveniste, a French physician and medical researcher in the field of immunology who helped discover platelet-activating factor in 1972. Unfortunately, Benveniste’s career was set upon a rocky course when a colleague encouraged him to study the phenomenon of potentization. His first paper about the subject described how antibodies of immunoglobulin E (anti-IgE) could be potentized beyond Avogadro’s number (the point at which it is unlikely to find a single molecule of a substance remaining in a dilution) and still cause substance-specific effects.

When Benveniste published these results in the prestigious journal Nature in 1988 [13], he came under a barrage of attacks that lasted for the rest of his life. But perhaps this wasn’t surprising. Benveniste’s work had essentially shown that any drug could be potentized and still remain effective. That means that billions of doses of any drug could be produced for pennies — information that drug companies would spend a fortune to attack and suppress. And in fact, there is evidence that a world-wide campaign to discredit homeopathy has been funded by the pharmaceutical industry for this very reason [14, 15].

Despite the attacks on Benveniste and his subsequent loss of government funding in France, he continued his work and came up with even more astounding results. Because he suspected that the potentization process conveys an electromagnetic signal into the water of a dilution, he developed an apparatus that could digitally record it. He then transmitted this signal electronically — via E-mail — to a distant laboratory, and had it “replayed” into water there. Amazingly, the resulting water caused the same effects as the original substance.

Benveniste eventually conducted several blinded experiments using this protocol. He published a paper in the Journal of Clinical Immunology in 1997 that described one such experiment, in which a specific antigen was potentized, recorded, E-mailed to Chicago, and replayed into water in a Chicago laboratory [16]. This water did indeed cause antigen-specific effects on isolated guinea pig hearts. I saw Benveniste present this paper at Stanford University Medical School in 1999. The large lecture hall was standing-room only, but the audience was politely incredulous.

Of course, Benveniste’s new results in what he called “digital biology” were even more mind-boggling and threatening than his original paper in Nature. Not only could billions of doses of a substance be prepared cheaply using potentization, but its signature could be E-mailed and imprinted into water essentially for free… Despite the fact that other initially-skeptical scientists have successfully replicated his work [17, 18], acceptance of Benveniste’s work remains for the future. Perhaps, with the growth of a new consciousness in the scientific community, that future will arrive sooner rather than later. Indeed, in 2009, some new research conducted by Nobel prize winner Luc Montagnier confirmed the same kinds of effects that Benveniste described [19]…

The Meaning of Disease

The power of potentization is indeed one of the landmark discoveries of Homeopathy. It provides us with a method for capturing the energetic signature of any substance in nature. But perhaps even more significant is homeopathy’s therapeutic principle, the Law of Similars — because it says something specific about how fields of meaning operate and interact. There may even be a direct relationship between the Law of Similars and synchronicity.

The late psychiatrist Edward Whitmont was a student of Carl Jung and eventually became a homeopath. In his book, Psyche and Substance, he speaks at length about the relationship between homeopathy and synchronicity [20]. Psychiatrists have long known that patients sometimes alternate between specific physical symptoms and specific mental or emotional symptoms. In fact, when mental symptoms are present, physical symptoms often vanish, and vice versa. This phenomenon is an illustration of the fundamentally psychosomatic nature of disease — that disease manifests in both the psyche (mind) and soma (body)…

Homeopathy and other holistic medical systems have long recognized that disease is a body-mind affair. That is why each patient manifests a unique pattern of mental, emotional, and physical symptoms — a pattern that is an outward representation of his or her vibratory state. As Whitmont points out, each homeopathic remedy is also associated with a vibration… The Law of Similars then states that bringing together the vibratory pattern of a patient and the similar vibratory pattern of a remedy can be curative. The reason this is true, Whitmont suggests, is synchronicity… Homeopathic remedies are curative because they share the same synchronistic field as a disease and therefore can replace it within a patient’s body. Hahnemann proposed essentially the same explanation in the early 1800s for the operation of his remedies upon what he called the dynamis or vital force — the energetic etheric field that encompasses the physical body.

The fact that homeopathy has worked for millions of people for 200 years says a lot about the power of the Law of Similars. But it also says something about fields of meaning and their relationship to us in disease and in health. Just as the dream of the golden scarab said something meaningful about the psychological state of Jung’s patient, holistic practitioners recognize that each person’s unique manifestation of disease is not merely the result of genetic inheritance or the accidents of life — it is a reflection of a field of meaning vibrating at the core of their being.

Paranormal Medicine?

A couple of other phenomena witnessed in the homeopathic world are worth mentioning. Because they border on the paranormal, they are rarely openly discussed. Both tend to occur during provings — the homeopathic drug trials. The object of these trials is to see what pattern of symptoms a substance will create in healthy volunteers. Today’s provings are conducted using modern techniques like double-blinding and placebo controls. Thus, some test subjects (called provers) are given placebo while others are given the actual remedy. Since the trials are also blinded, neither the provers nor their supervisors, who collect symptom information, know who has been given a real remedy or a placebo, nor the identity of the substance being tested. Nevertheless, the following kinds of phenomena have been observed during many trials.

First, it has been noticed that the moment a prover forms the intention to participate in a proving, they often begin to experience symptoms that are later found to be characteristic of the remedy — long before the trial actually begins. While this doesn’t happen to all provers, it happens frequently enough to be noteworthy. By simply intending to join a remedy trial, a prover may enter into the field of meaning of the remedy substance. Just as paranormal phenomena often defy the normal constraints of time and space, the fields of meaning created by homeopathic remedies may as well.

The second remarkable thing about provings is that the symptoms developed by provers often directly reflect the nature of the substance from which a remedy is made. This is most obvious in the case of remedies made from animal substances… Consider, for example, the blind proving of Androctonus conducted in 1985. Even though the provers did not know that they were taking a remedy made from scorpion venom, they developed the following kinds of symptoms: overconfidence; contemptuousness and defiance; lack of feeling and cruelty; quarrelsomeness and deceitfulness; the delusion that they were about to be assaulted and a malicious desire to injure others; suspiciousness; a lack of impulse control; anxiety and fear that is ameliorated by walking around; aversion to company; and a feeling that one is alone or separated from the world [21].

Notice how evocative many of these symptoms are of scorpions — violent, cruel, and antisocial. Indeed, this remedy has been effective in treating patients with serious mental illness. In my book about homeopathy, Impossible Cure, I describe the case of one man who, thanks to Androctonus, experienced a cure of severe allergies and headaches, as well as a significant lessening of arthritis, high blood pressure, and diabetes. The man was an avid hunter, obsessed with guns and knives. He told his homeopath how he would wait until his prey came to him and how he could sense and communicate with them. Interestingly, scorpions also let their prey come to them, and they can accurately detect their victim’s location by sensing their vibrations. After taking Androctonus, this hunter was not only alleviated of his physical problems, but he also became much less interested in his extensive collection of weapons [22].

Think of it. The process of potentization may provide us with a method for accessing the very essence of the natural world. Just as Merlin the Magician showed the future King Arthur what it was like to be a fish or bird, a prover who takes a potentized remedy may learn what it’s like to be a scorpion, a dolphin, a flower, or even a mineral! Our entire universe may be intricately and intimately interconnected through vibration and meaning.

What is the Summer Solstice?

The Summer Solstice is known as the longest day of the year, because it is the day with the most sunlight. The word "Solstice" is Latin for "solstitium" which means, "sun stopping", and on the Solstice, the point on the horizon where the sun appears to rise and set, stops and reverses direction after this day. 

During Solstice, the sun does not rise precisely in the east, but rises to the north of east and sets to the north of west, meaning it's visible in the sky for a longer period of time. As Summer Solstice ushers in days that are longer than nights, we are allowed to experience more light in our lives by the grace of the sunshine.

Since the beginning of time, our ancestors have celebrated the Solstice with ritual and magickal rites. By honoring the Sun as our source of light, and life - we appreciate the light of consciousness within ourselves, and within each and every person on Earth. 

According to Belsebuub.com, the deeper meaning of the spiritual significance of the Solstice is as follows: 

"The progress of the sun throughout the year symbolizes the process of attaining enlightenment, and the summer solstice is the final climax of this journey as the day of most light in the year. It symbolizes the ascension found in many great spiritual teachings. At the spring equinox, the resurrection and return of the Son/sun to the Mother goddess is celebrated. Following this, the summer solstice symbolizes the return/ascension to the Great Father Spirit. It is a time to celebrate the triumph of light over darkness in the individual, and the return to wholeness in which the Son, Mother Goddess, and Father God become one great unified consciousness—a complete, whole, and powerful light that enlightens the individual.

The Druids, ancient Egyptians, Mayans, Essenes, Romans, and many others have aligned their sacred sites to the summer solstice and conducted ceremonies on this day. At the Great Pyramids of Egypt the summer solstice sun crowns the head of the Sphinx; the Druids celebrated the marriage of heaven and earth and the defeat of the dark god of the year just as the Egyptians celebrated the defeat of the dark god Seth by Horus, the sun; and in Rome the festival of Vestalia continued a Druid tradition of guarding the sacred fire.

Light is spiritual in its nature, and so the sun and stars have a spiritual significance that has its root in higher dimensions—in many ancient teachings they are described as the source of creation. The summer solstice is therefore a highly spiritual time. The summer solstice is described as the gate of ascent out of this world into the realm of spirit by both Krishna, in the famous text The Bhagavad Gita, and in the designs of the secret caves of Mithras."

Exploring the Laws of the Universe: The Law of Rhythm (The Principle of Rhythm)

This week's law of the Universe, is the Law of Rhythm (the Principle of Rhythm). All is vibration and all is frequency - nothing stands still. Everything moves, but everything moves at its own rhythm. This is the made ballad of the all that is, and this is the Universe’s song.

Knowing that nothing is solid and everything is malleable is a law to understand properly, and to not confuse with the Law of Attraction. This is the made law of the call to create, because rhythm is where creation emerges from and harmony is all of creation woven together.

This law is to know that balance occurs within the universe by the varying tones of rhythm, which is the song of the need for all to be able to exist.

Using this law as a principle in your life is allowing your rhythm and movement to be in harmony with creation. Let your tone and intention be purposeful, and allow your voice to sing the proper songs. Allow your body to move gracefully and let your steps be made to bring you always closer to your goals.

Spirit Animal of the Week: The Jaguar

The animal to be the made spirit this week is the Jaguar. The Jaguar is a mysterious animal that moves undetected through the jungle with an energy of mystery and gracefulness.

He has no known enemy, and is the call of the made wild spirit that mysteriously moves and makes his life’s work without needing fortune and fame.

He does to do, and that is his instinct. Letting this spirit be your guide is to understand the made magick of mystery and the force that comes from doing what is instinctual without expectation - only knowing what your made result will be, because it is what you command.

Tarot Card of the Week (6/17 - 6/24): XIX - The Sun

Tarot Card of the Week (6/17 - 6/24): XIX - The Sun

Alphabet: R, Resh in Hebrew

Numerical Value: 200

Astrological Nature: Sun

XIX - The Sun: The Sun is the mother of the mother Earth. She shines her life to all of creation, and allows the cycle of birth. She speaks in golden tones, and warmth to all. The language of her life is light, and is the balance between the day and the night.

 The Sun is the mother to “all” of the ballad of the planet Earth, or Gaia, as she is known to Ascended Masters. Gaia is the name of the bed of Earth that allows the sleeping souls to awaken. The ballad of The Sun and the Earth is that the Earth is able to be the bed, and The Sun is able to be the incubator of life. The Sun gives the man its ability to grow through the light and warmth she gives off. The Sun is the incubator, and the bed is the Earth. This is the nursery of life that houses the ballad of souls singing songs that are harmonious to creation in that they are able to be the sons of The Sun, and the daughters of The Moon.

The ballad of the relationship between Sun, Moon and Earth is the making of love on the bed of Earth, which impregnates the new lives to be born in their cycle of time that is in choreography with the procession of the equinoxes. The ballad of the equinox, is that the ballad is always the same, but the melody shifts a note. The resurrection of Christ is no different than the resurrection of Osiris, the resurrection of Enki, and the resurrection of Mithras. It is the same for all these souls, even now in this time Christ has resurrected, and is here, and you are not even aware of who/what "he" is.

This is the ballad of the song sung by the ballad of creation to keep singing a song that sounds a little different each time, until the perfect note is belted out and the ballad is complete. This is like a record getting a chip on it - the record may sound a little different, but is playing the same song. The ballad changes pitch, but does not lose the rhythm, allowing the record to continue spinning is the ballad of the destiny of man of this plane of Earth. The next record is going to have a different beat, but will still be a harmonious song - the record is geared to the frequency of the planet, and the planets each have their own frequency that is theirs and theirs alone. The "damnation" of man to be stuck on this planet is not damnation at all, but is a bigger part of an infinite plan that will continue on for infinite ages. The ages always change in harmony with the zodiac, but each incarnation is different and every story is its own, but do not lose faith in the satire of this new unfolding story.

You are going to be very surprised, but the call to be surprised means there is a present in store. The future is shines brighter than you currently imagine and is going to be the ballad of the Age of Aquarius, but you need not worry. The Sun will always shine, The Sun will always rise, and The Moon will always love her much more than you can comprehend. Their relationship will be infinite just as the call to creation. Be the change you wish to see, and the change will then be made manifest and the allowed future will come to fruition. 

Liberation Frequency #14: From No Thing, From Everything - The Visionary Art of Mike Lo

In this episode of Liberation Frequency, Jennifer Sodini interviews visionary artist, Mike Lo

Mike Lo is an artist from Cleveland, OH. He found his rhythm early on, and began experimenting with various styles before finding his “voice”. Using forms of geometry, mixed with silk screening techniques, and street art ethos - he comes from the skateboard to the canvas, evolving into ‘being’. The authenticity of his creations, come from an unconscious wisdom that seems to be guiding him. He describes his art with primordial symbols that evoke a sense of familiarity when met with a glance. The impression of his understanding, purpose and meaning has been speaking to you since the dawn of time, whether you chose to listen or not. Mike understands the power of these symbols, and their ‘akashic’ connection to our DNA. We are taught to avoid these symbols, for fear of something that modern man is overcoming at this moment in time. When fear becomes the illusion, our perception of the outside world becomes a multi dimensional experience. Mike Lo finds a way to open us up to the possibilities, using symbols and imagery that communicates directly to the spirit and welcomes us to an age of gnosis and immortal light.
