How to Use Oracle and Tarot Cards For Deep Inner Work
By Aletheia Luna
Mysterious, esoteric, and ancient in origin, tarot and oracle cards are steadily increasing in popularity.
And there’s a good reason for that … they work!
No, I don’t believe tarot and oracle cards can predict the future as the future isn’t set in stone. Neither do I believe that the reason oracle and tarot cards are rising in popularity is due to such an antiquated use as fortune telling.
Instead, from what I’ve observed and experienced, tarot and oracle cards are rising in prevalence because they are powerful gateways to the inner self and unconscious mind. And in this day and age, the need to connect with our inner selves is increasing in intensity and desperate necessity.
Ultimately, oracle and tarot cards are spiritual tools that anyone can use. If I am to list one tool that I consult and use each and every day, it would be my tarot and oracle cards. Why? These deceptively simple cards are like fractals: the deeper you meditate and reflect on a card, the more you discover about yourself. This makes oracle and tarot cards powerful meditation tools that are ideal for increasing one’s spiritual and psychological growth.
Are you curious about dipping your toes into the world of oracle and tarot cards? Read on. If you’ve already tasted the sweet nectar of this amazingly illuminating tool, I’m sure you’ll find something interesting to feast on below as well.
What is the Difference Between Oracle and Tarot Cards?
Let’s start off with the basics. Oracle and tarot cards are similar in nature but not the same.
The main difference is that tarot is a system that spans back millennia and is divided into the major and minor arcana, and four suits: the swords, pentacles, cups, and wands. Each suit consists of ten cards and four ‘court’ cards (page, knight, queen, and king). Oracle cards, on the other hand, are newer inventions and they generally don’t have a set structure making them more fluid. Generally, it is up to the creator of the oracle deck to create some kind of framework or system (if any).
Tarot takes a bit of time and dedication to learn as each card has various layers of meaning. Tarot also has upright and reversed meanings (which, translated, means that if you pull a card upside down its meaning will change). Although tarot sounds complex, it is a deeply intriguing system that overlaps with numerous ancient systems such as numerology, astrology, the Kabbalah, and alchemy. I find that it provides more intricate and multi-layered answers and insights than oracle cards.
With that being said, oracle cards do have their own charm. If you’re a beginner and don’t know where to start, getting an oracle deck is a non-intimidating way of entering the world of ‘card slinging.’ Unlike tarot cards which are named according to a clear-cut system (e.g. “ace of pentacles,” “three of swords,” “King of Cups”), oracle cards tend to be named in more simple and straight-forward ways. Common examples include “beginning,” “ending,” “courage,” “transformation,” “healing,” “wisdom,” “balance,” etc.
Oracle decks are generally easier (in my experience) to use as meditative tools than tarot decks and tend to give an overview of the problem or situation at hand that you’re seeking guidance for.
Can Tarot and Oracle Cards Predict the Future?
Short answer: nothing can “predict” the future with 100% accuracy as the future isn’t set in stone and we have free will to change it. Tarot and oracle cards do however show the most likely outcome based on what is happening in our lives within the present moment.
How Do They Work?
There are many explanations for how and why tarot and oracle cards provide such unnervingly accurate or illuminating answers.
Some believe that they are communing with ancestors, spirits, or personal etheric guides when doing readings for themselves. Others believe that the cards themselves have power. I, however, don’t subscribe to these theories. Instead, I prefer to adopt a psychospiritual approach. When using a tarot or oracle deck, I believe we are connecting to our unconscious minds which are a bridge to the collective unconscious, or Universal Mind. Within our unconscious and shared unconscious (what psychologist Carl Jung called the ‘Collective Unconscious’) resides our essence, our wisest self, or our true nature (Soul). I believe that when we are communing with the images on these cards, we are triggering deep instinctive and timeless knowledge within us and inciting it to rise to the surface.
In other words, our minds are like deep lakes. We tend to live on the surface of this lake in everyday life, but tarot and oracle cards are like fishing lines that we throw into the deep to draw up the wisdom we need.
While the language of the conscious rational brain is words and verbal descriptions, the language of the unconscious is more ancient and pre-verbal. Images, archetypes, and symbols all form the language of the unconscious – and they also simultaneously form the way in which we can get in touch with the unconscious. Because tarot and oracle cards are primarily image-based, they are one of the most powerful ways of connecting with the wisdom buried deep within us.
4 Dangers of Using Oracle and Tarot
Please don’t be alarmed. Stories of demonic possession as a result of using tarot are the result of narrow-minded and superstitious misunderstandings spread by religions such as orthodox Christianity. Tarot is a tool of self-exploration – it’s like having a coach or teacher by your side – that’s it.
Can it be used to lift the veil between this world and the next? Maybe. But you only get out of tarot what you put into it. In other words, use it as a self-discovery and it will be just that. Many things in life can be used to dabble in the psychic arts – just look at cups and tea bags (or the divinatory practice of tea reading). Are you going to stop drinking tea just because someone out there uses tea drinking to communicate with spirits of the dead? I don’t think so.
Tarot and oracle decks are quite literally pieces of card with images on them. There’s nothing spooky or satanic about them. As with anything in life, they are ultimately what you make of them – nothing more, nothing less. So if you already have a mind biased toward them, it might be better to seek out another inner work tool (such as mirror work).
No, the dangers I am about to mention are more emotional and psychologicaloriented. Be mindful of the following:
Being mindful of these pitfalls will help you to get the most out of your oracle and tarot cards.
What to Look For in an Oracle and Tarot Deck (+ Some Suggestions)
You don’t need to be a crazy deck collector like me to benefit from this self-exploration tool. Simply investing in one or two decks will help get you acquainted with this fascinating method of self-growth.
When it comes to getting your own deck, forget the old myth that someone needs to gift you a deck first. This old tradition is very limiting. In the old days there was no convenient way to obtain a deck unless someone gave one to you, but these days we have the privilege of having access to an amplitude of decks. So go out there and find one you resonate with.
Here’s what to pay attention to when trying to find a deck:
Ultimately what you are attracted to in a deck is very personal. Some people don’t need or read the guidebooks, while others absolutely must have an in-depth quality guidebook to get to know their cards. Some people like big cards while others like small cards. Some like indie decks while others prefer to stick to big-named decks. Some need a sturdy box while others don’t mind what the heck the deck comes in. You get the picture!
Listen to youtube videos (search for walkthroughs) and read reviews online before you purchase your deck. This little stack of cards may be staying with you for many years, so make sure you put in your research.
I currently have a collection of around 50 tarot and oracle decks combined and they were either bought, traded online with others, or given to me. My personal preferences are matte medium cardstock tarot/oracle cards that have good thick guidebooks. Anything pagan or nature-based I love (it must be my Celtic roots).
There’s a multitude of deck themes out there – angels, vampires, animals, fairies, mermaids, mythological tales, goddesses, voodoo, shamans, unicorns … you name it and you’ll probably find a deck related to it.
I know this all may sound overwhelming (it most certainly was for me!). But my advice is to start small. There are numerous well-known decks out there which tend to tick most boxes. I recommend starting out by researching those. You can look within your local bookstore or new age store. Alternatively, look online on places such as Amazon or Book Depository for some good deals.
Here are some decks I recommend that I either possess or have heard good things about:
Vintage wisdom oracle
Chakra wisdom oracle
The Goddess Oracle
Journey of Love Oracle
Gaia Oracle cards
The Wild Unknown tarot
Centennial Smith-Waite tarot
Morgan Greer tarot
Each of these decks you can find on Amazon (all are linked) for you to explore at your leisure. Don’t be afraid to look outside of these recommendations either – I’m just providing a starting place so that you don’t get too overwhelmed!
How to Use Oracle and Tarot Cards For Deep Inner Work
Let’s get to the meat of this article: how can we use these bits of card for deep inner exploration?
Here are some ideas:
1. Inner Child Work
Inner child work is the practice of connecting with, exploring, understanding, learning from, and healing your inner child. We all have a vulnerable place inside of us that sees the world with childlike wonder and an open heart. Many of us have lost touch with this soft part of ourselves or have suppressed the inner child due to trauma or early life abuse. Reconnecting with your inner child is one of the most profound forms of inner work you could ever commit to. It truly creates deep transformation if you stick with it.
What I love about using tarot and oracle cards for inner child work is that it can be so eye-opening, yet nurturing and supportive. Depending on the deck you use, inner child work can be no-nonsense and in your face, or it can be subtle and gentle. Your inner child will be very responsive and sensitive towards the pictures of the cards, so consider working with a soft deck (perhaps with an angelic, storybook or animal theme). Consider working with decks such as the Inner Child Cards, Shadowscapes Tarot, Wisdom of the Oracle or Alice: the Wonderland Oracle.
To begin using your tarot or oracle cards for inner child work, think of three questions you would like to ask your inner child. Examples may include:
Once you pull your cards, pause and reflect on them. I recommend journalling briefly (or in depth if you have the time) about the cards you pull and what feelings, thoughts, and memories they trigger within you.
2. Shadow Work
I adore using the tarot and oracle for shadow work – they go hand-in-hand like peanut butter and jelly. The whole point of these wondrous cards is to draw up unconscious knowledge, and as you may or may not know, the unconscious is also conveniently the realm of the shadow self.
Is it possible to directly communicate with your shadow self through tarot and oracle cards? Yes, I believe it is so long as you have a clear intention and focus.
Decks I recommend looking into for doing shadow work include Deviant Moon tarot, Ceccoli tarot (if you are merging shadow work with inner child work), Dark Mirror oracle, and the Halloween oracle.
To begin, consider creating a section in your journal that is dedicated specifically to your tarot shadow work. (You may even like to consider setting aside an entire journal by itself as tarot shadow work can draw up a lot of intriguing content, believe me.) There are many shadow work tarot spreads on the internet that you can draw inspiration from, but it’s best to start simple. Think of some questions or topics you would like to explore. Examples may include:
I could go on and on, but these questions will give you a good place to start. Once you have pulled a card or two, write down the cards you got and your reflections. Notice whether any anger, disgust, shame or fear is triggered within you. If so, this is a clear sign you’ve touched on shadow material. Hooray! Now it’s time to do some digging and introspection.
Tarot and oracle cards are also wonderful ways to develop single-pointed concentration. Simply draw a card for the day, put it in front of you, set a timer (e.g. for 10-20 minutes) and gaze at it. While you are observing the card, focus simultaneously on your breath going in and out. Don’t try to interpret the card, simply notice the colors, faces, forms, emotion, shapes, etc. Let everything you see go in and out of your mind like clouds passing through the sky.
Meditating with your tarot and oracle cards also doubles as a wonderful way of ‘getting to know’ your new deck (or deepening your relationship with an old one).
4. Pathworking (or inner journeying)
Pathworking is essentially a technique that involves mentally projecting yourself into the picture of the card. This is done to gain wisdom, self-knowledge or solutions to problems.
Pathworking can be used in conjunction with meditation (see above) or as a technique by itself. To begin pathworking, sit in a dark room, light a candle, and place it at the base of your card (but not too close as you don’t want it to become all crispy like a piece of bacon!). Breathe deeply, ground yourself, and focus on the card. Let your focus become gentle and soft. When you are ready, imagine yourself stepping into the card. Spend some time walking around in the landscape, noticing what the atmosphere feels like, and touching objects within the card. If a person, animal or other being is within the card, approach them and start a conversation. What information do they have to share with you? If they wish to take you to another place, listen to your gut and let yourself follow if you feel comfortable. Remember that you are in complete control and you can cease your pathworking whenever you feel the need to.
Pathworking is a fascinating and effective way of gaining deep self-insight. While for some people this technique is difficult, for others (more ‘imaginative’ or dreamy types) it comes naturally. So experiment and discover the power of this practice yourself!
Some of the most loving messages I’ve ever received have come through tarot and oracle cards – and many people have had the same experience. What I love about using tarot and oracle cards for deepening my self-love is how often they align with synchronicity. For example, I tend to pull the precise cards I need to learn from at the exact right time. It is these cards that give me goosebumps, make my heart burst open, and my eyes swell with tears. Again, this is not an experience unique to me, almost everyone who uses tarot/oracle cards will have at least one magical moment of heartfelt epiphany about themselves.
To use tarot/oracle cards for self-love, choose a nurturing deck like Crystal Visions Tarot, Whispers of Love Oracle or Universal Love Oracle. Do a daily draw in which you pull a card each morning and reflect on it. You can even create a formal daily self-love practice in which you pull a card for the week and reflect each day on the various layers of the card and what messages it has to offer you.
Here are some questions you may like to ask when pulling a card:
As with all inner work practices, keep a journal and record your reflections. Also, ensure that you practically apply the advice you receive. There’s no point pulling cards if you aren’t willing to make conscious changes in your life. Be practical and seek to ground the discoveries you make in your daily existence.
I hope I’ve inspired you to explore this wondrous inner work tool – or apply it in a different way. There are a multitude of ways to use tarot/oracle cards so don’t see my suggestions above as the be-all-and-end-all. But I do hope the above practices help.

How to Protect Your Energy When Feeling Extra Sensitive
Whenever you go through a period of change or whenever there are lots of planetary shifts, it is natural to feel extra sensitive. If you are already highly sensitive or an empath, this can land you in a very overwhelming place!
If you find yourself feeling anxious around others or overwhelmed in public places for no apparent reason, it’s likely you are picking up every bit of energy from all around you. This is no fun, and can cause you to feel very depleted and overcome with emotion.
While visualizing yourself in a white light is one the best and fastest ways to protect your energy, here are some other action-based steps you can take when you are feeling extra sensitive-
1.) Be Mindful of Who you Spend Time With
When you are feeling extra sensitive it is really important to get comfortable with saying no to people or situations that are going to drain your energy or make you feel even more overwhelmed.
Perhaps when you are feeling at the top of your game you can handle anything and anyone, but at other times, you have to be ok with saying no and really thinking consciously about who you are choosing to spend your time with.
In this case, self-care is really about not putting yourself in situations and around people who are going to make you feel more overwhelmed or more emotional.
2.) Protect Your Heart Chakra
Your heart chakra is where we make meaningful connections with others. When you are feeling extra sensitive or emotional, it can cause your heart chakra energy to swing out of balance. This is something that usually corrects itself in time, but protecting your heart chakra is a great way to support yourself in the meantime.
To protect your heart chakra, consider wearing a necklace that reaches your heart center with a protective stone, crystal or amulet of some kind. The most important thing is that the necklace has meaning for you.
Before wearing the necklace, hold the pendant in your hands and set an intention that it is going to protect you, help you keep your heart open to the good, and clear any negative energy that is not yours to carry.
3.) Get out in Nature
Living in a bustling city or being around a stressful environment of any kind can drain and deplete your energy, especially when you are feeling extra sensitive.
To counteract this, getting out in nature is the perfect remedy. Try to go somewhere that is peaceful and quiet, so you can really soak up the wonderful energy of nature.
Nature has a very balancing effect on the human spirit, which is why it is so powerful. Make it a point to really open your senses and immerse yourself in the experience.
If you don’t have much time and want a quick boost, find a tree and place your hands on its trunk. While touching the tree, close your eyes and ask for Mother Nature to replenish and repair your energy. Give thanks to the tree and Mother Nature once you are done.
4.) Recite a Mantra or Hum a Tune
When you are out in public and suddenly feel really overwhelmed with energy or a bit anxious, the best way to distract yourself is to recite a mantra or hum a tune to your favorite song.
This is simple and easy to do, and will help to direct your energy inwards rather than outwards like a magnet.
Here are some suggestions for mantras you can use:
These suggestions are simple, but can help you to feel a little more secure and centered when you are in a highly sensitive space.
Sir Isaac Newton’s Secret Quest for the God Engine
Isaac Newton, English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, inventor and natural philosopher was one of the most influential and accomplished scientists in history. After Newton died, however, he caused great embarrassment to the scientific community when it was discovered that he was Europe’s leading alchemist. But just how many of his paradigm shifting scientific achievements resulted from his quest for the ‘Philosopher's Stone’ and his translation of the ‘Emerald Tablet of Hermes’?
Newton’s Secret Treasure Acquired by John Maynard Keynes In July 1936, economist John Maynard Keynes returned from Sotheby’s auction house in London with a chest full of unpublished hand-written papers, laboratory books, diagrams and over a million unpublished words by Sir Isaac Newton. Contrary to expectations, Newton’s hitherto unseen papers did not illustrate his musings on celestial mechanics, calculus, optics or mathematical theory, but his personal work on esoteric theology and his alchemical laboratory notes. While Isaac Newton was regarded a towering sentinel of the scientific method on a global platform, he was secretly a deeply mystical, magical and animistic thinker.
The Newton Project website provides scans of papers written by John Maynard Keynes, offering researchers insights into Newton’s inner thoughts, for example: “the universe was a cryptogram set by The Almighty.” Newton set out to: “read the riddle of the Godhead, of past and future events divinely foreordained” and according to Keynes, Newton turned to the early philosophical works of the 16th century European intellectuals who formed the mystical secret society - The Ancient & Mystical Order Rosae Crucis, better known as the Rosicrucians.
Deeply religious and anti-Catholic, just like Newton, the Rosicrucians strived to create a liquid called the Elixir Vitae and a substance called the ‘Philosopher's Stone’, required to produce limitless amounts gold. Michael White’s 1999 book Isaac Newton: The Last Sorcerer tells us Newton owned: “169 books on alchemy,” including a highly annotated English translation of Thomas Vaughan’s Rosicrucian Manifestos; The Fame and Confession of the Fraternity R.C. and Themis Aurea by Michael Maier, a classic early work on the origins of Gnosticism and the Rosicrucian movement.
A quote by Keynes, published in Sir Isaac Newton, The Last Sorcerer perfectly summarizes the importance Newton assigned to alchemy in his quest for universal truths: "Newton was motivated by a deep-rooted commitment to the notion that alchemical wisdom extended back to ancient times
Altered States of Entrapment: The Plant Medicine Manipulation
Over the past two years, I’ve hosted a total of four Time of Transition retreats in the Peruvian high jungle alongside my good friend Fred Clarke Alvarez. Our retreat program takes a very different approach in comparison to many other retreats that people organize and participate in. We provide an eclectic program that’s comprised of talks, workshops, and practices which take place within a small group setting. It is largely based on elements of my work, going deeper into topics I’ve been writing about – but most importantly, it delves into the embodiment process on an experiential level while simultaneously being immersed in nature, surrounded by the powerful frequencies of the Amazon high jungle (go HERE to see the program.)
Up until this point in time, we have also included a Huachuma (San Pedro Cactus) medicine journey as part of the program. I have been personally working with Huachuma on and off since 2007, and Fred has facilitated Huachuma ceremonies for over 10 years. When we both had the vision to combine our talents four years ago (Fred is also an incredibly gifted sound healer, working with ancient Peruvian instruments), we were called to facilitate a Huachuma ceremony as part of the attendee experience. We have individually walked the “medicine path” for 20 years, both of us in our own way, working with different plants (mostly ayahuasca, huachuma, and psilocybin mushrooms) as part of our individual healing/awakening process. Personally-speaking, however, working with medicine plants has never been my focus, since I don’t just follow “one” path/teaching modality, even though they have helped in my own healing/awakening process at certain life stages (most predominantly in my late 20s and early 30s).
As I have written in “Reflections on Ayahuasca, Psychedelics, Marijuana, and a critical look at the Psychedelic Movement” (Note: This article should be read in full for total context):
My personal experience with psychedelics/medicine plants in general is two-fold. On one hand they have provided incredible insight into myself and reality, but on the other hand it has also been very confusing and disturbing at times. My introduction to psychedelics happened with psilocybin mushrooms in 1996 which I used for a number of years in my mid twenties on the path of self-exploration and healing. These experiences have also led me to bodywork, yoga, and qi gong, which I’ve been practicing ever since.
These were also emotional heavy times of confronting the shadow with periods of depression, despair, suicidal tendencies, and anger as my shadow was coming to light. Most of it was suppressed emotional states from past experiences, mostly childhood, confronting my shame, guilt and sadness from childhood wounding. However, looking back, I also didn’t have the context and knowledge to integrate these medicine plant/psychedelic induced experiences, especially from a psychological perspective. I stopped doing any psychedelics/medicine plants for many years and focused more on integrating what had come up through deeper self-work, learning about psychology, integrating psychotherapy and using bodywork, yoga, dance, breath work and qi gong to get in touch with my emotional body through these body-mind modalities.
I’ve also realized that using these substances can become another buffer and avoidance. Looking back at my experiences, I had to acknowledge that I was over-estimating myself and lying to myself about my healing process on some level. Just like many other people I got hooked on the “peak experience” and avoided deeper psychotherapeutic and sincere self-work without the use of these substances.
In addition, given the issues with medicine plants that can be seen in light of the hyperdimensional matrix agenda (and the occult forces acting on and working through humans), Fred and I always took a lot of care and preparation before holding any ceremony. We both still saw – and experienced – the positive benefits of working with Huachuma within the right framework and setting. As a result, many people at our retreats had amazing healing moments and breakthroughs during these ceremonies. However, over the past year, we felt a shift occurring with regards to this entire paradigm. Both of us had already stopped working with ayahuasca in 2013 – out of all the medicine plants, this power plant is the most intense “journey” to traverse (in my experience).
More and more abuse of ‘aya’ by “shamans” has surfaced over the years – scam artists (and worse) who have taken advantage of the ayahuasca hype/popularity and tourism boom in order to manipulate vulnerable individuals (my aforementioned article – “Reflections on Ayahuasca, Psychedelics, Marijuana, and a critical look at the Psychedelic Movement” – describes an experience in Peru that revealed a lot to me about this disturbing trend). However, while I had stopped working with ayahuasca, I still saw and experienced the positive potential of other medicine plants, despite the growing distortions and abuse within various cultural and spiritual ‘scenes’.
Fred and I have also felt (and seen) that many people tend to focus too much on medicine plants as an “end in itself”, without engaging in the sincere self-work (psychologically, esoterically and spiritually) and embodiment practices that have always been the primary focus of our retreat. People tend to give these plants too much power, be it through “worshipping” them (“the plant spirit told me”) and getting very attached to the “experience”/trip, or through accusing the “plant guides” of being misleading/manipulative if things didn’t go as they had envisioned beforehand, which ties into the victim/blame trap.
After a period of deeper reflection and contemplation, Fred Clarke Alvarez and I have decided not to work with Huachuma anymore at our retreat. As mentioned, this is a decision and realization that has crystalized very clearly over the past year. The work we do in the jungle is already powerful enough without any medicine plant involvement, and we want to focus more on deep embodiment programs and other practices we have developed, including some new techniques we will implement. I’ve also come to the realization recently (via inner experience) that medicine plants can actually interfere with the embodiment process, becoming an obstacle on the path towards truly anchoring higher consciousness frequencies, even though they can be helpful for some people at a certain stage of awakening.
The Times…They Are ChangingHowever, these are very different times we find ourselves in comparison to the recent past. Much has changed – the whole “medicine”world” is “tainted”, with lots of abuse and interferences taking place, especially since it all has become so popular and hyped. I’ve received many messages from people having had similar experiences and concerns lately, which confirm the decision we made regarding the retreat program. There are too many issues with these power plants during this time and age of upheaval, especially in regards to the energies we are currently infused with. It’s imperative to embody the higher frequencies and activate our original blueprint/DNA – our inner organic body-technology – without any external agent/substance. Personally, I don’t feel drawn to work with any medicine plants anymore at all. It’s an embodied decision based on experience, not an intellectual one, nor a reactive choice based on fear. I’ve realized that the more one uses power plants (especially to an excessive extent), the less one is able to anchor higher conscious frequencies and reconnect dormant DNA circuits naturally and permanently.
Moreover, these chemical compounds can also induce counterfeit/fake experiences of “bliss” and “enlightenment”, where we can even fool ourselves into believing that we have “healed” a particular issue. I’ve had an interesting discussion about this particular topic with a friend who has worked intensely with ayahuasca for many years. During the height of her usage, she thought she had healed many core issues (childhood wounding/trauma), since “the medicine” revealed this healing to her so clearly, and she had felt so much better after each ceremony.
However, now that a few years have passed, the same stuff keeps coming up again, as if it has never been truly processed in the first place. I have experienced the same ‘false dawn syndrome’ when I was deeply immersed in working with medicine plants 15 years ago. It relates to what I mentioned above (from the article): I had to acknowledge that I was over-estimating myself and lying to myself about my healing process on some level. I also “thought” and even initially “felt” that these plants helped me to heal childhood wounding/trauma, but it all came back around again with a vengeance many years later. It was only through sober, difficult internal work (on all levels: psychologically, emotionally, spiritually) that I was empowered enough to fully let go and heal these “issues”, thereby genuinely reconnecting to my “true” self in the process of soul integration (embodiment).
Medicine plants are not a magic pill that miraculously heal all wounding and trauma, even though they can be of assistance in revealing what needs to be healed and processed (and can also be beneficial when dealing with intense addiction issues). The deception – or rather, the misperception – my friend and I (and many others) have realized in respect to ‘plant therapy’ is similar to that which arises when one “intellectually” knows (or even “feels”) their issues, but has failed to work through them on an embodied level. My friend had an interesting insight about this point: looking back, she felt that, during her ayahuasca ceremonies, the wounds opened up and “projected” all of her “stuff” and shadow aspects into her awareness. That experience – combined with the euphoria/bliss/ecstasy of getting “high” (based on the medicine/drug induced DMT rush) – can transmit the idea that a deep healing has occurred…a perception that can last for weeks or even months. Hence, many people keep going back to work with medicine plants when they feel “stuff” resurfacing, in order to have that “peak” experience again and again.
This article – Whoring the Goddess – Ayahuasca takes her revenge – also offers some valuable insight into the repercussions associated with the abusive/addictive “miasma” that has increasingly-coated the vibrational field of ayahuasca.
Some people also tend to “pride” themselves on having “completed” 30, 50, 80 or more ayahuasca ceremonies. That’s almost an “insane” level of dependence, and it ties into the “spiritual bypassing” phenomenon: getting hooked on the experience while lying to themselves about why they keep taking it (and what they are taking on-board energetically as a result).
A curanderos I worked with said that if you do it right – with the right preparation (which is not just diet-connected, but also relates to having done a good amount of sincere self-work as a foundation), the right context and setting, and the right follow-up to integrate it all (not just days, but months and even years) – you only “need” a few ceremonies, one or two at most. He also said that in recent times there has been a “reversal” in the medicine dynamic – it has turned from people using the plants to “the plants using them”, creating a very unhelpful co-dependency. I want to stress that, while there may be an opportunity to use these plants consciously as an opening – a “tool”, and only a few times at that – and then continue to do the work without them, it’s also the case that taking medicine plants is not at all necessary (in general) on the path towards awakening and wholeness.
Also, traditionally speaking, even before the custom was corrupted by mass consumption trends (to say nothing of the fact that many people don’t even question the traditions themselves, which ties into the trap of blindly romanticizing indigenous cultures), not everyone was allowed to participate in ceremony with only a few people attending. Participating with a group of more than 10 people is already troublesome (based upon my experiences), let alone 60 or 100. A good friend of mine who was a medicine woman (she passed away a few years ago) shared with me an experience she had when she was assisting a well known shaman (who owns an ayahuasca center) in the Sacred Valley of Peru during an ayahuasca ceremony with about 30 participants. The “shaman” was just sitting there, singing his songs and playing guitar – in the meantime, people were heavily processing.
My friend was very sensitive to energies, and also possessed clairvoyant abilities; while people were purging, moaning and screaming, she saw one dark shadow/entity coming out of one individual and jumping right into the person next to them, finding a new host/vehicle to ‘infect’ . The shaman was not aware of this phenomenon at all, and didn’t give anyone a single minute of personal attention. Such indifferent displays are not an uncommon occurrence, especially in large group settings where people don’t know each other (including the shaman), having only just met right before the ceremony. In such reckless circumstances, you never know what you open yourself up to, and how the collective energies will intermingle in a large group setting like that.
In the past one needed to earn the “right” to participate – an initiation in and of itself – and it was also always clear to the community that it was not for everyone. The ceremonies were limited to members of the community/tribe who not only already knew each other but even grew up together. In many cases, these plants were restricted to the medicine men/women only, or were used strictly for dealing with extreme cases of disease/entrapment. To add to the insanity and corruption of modern-day manipulations, “shamans” now offer Ayahuasca and Huachauma – and other psycho-active plants (or toad-extracted compounds) – back to back, with maybe just a one day “break” in between each sitting, if at all. Mixing psychoactive plant spirits like that is a big no-no, which any true shaman knows about. But as Fred has witnessed as a born-and-raised Peruvian, nowadays you have these medicine plant retreats that are like “psychedelic candy stores”, where the “spirits” are passed around without discernment to anyone who joins…especially because they know that “gringos” like the visual “fireworks”.
“Psychedelic substances like ayahuasca create a state of hypersuggestibility in which persons are very open to being influenced by others. Many traditional cultures have utilized this condition to inculcate cultural values and behaviors in young people as they receive initiation into adulthood. In the West, countercultural values can be inculcated in young people when using these psychedelics, especially when using them in an antinomian [spiritually-released from the obligation of observing moral laws] context.”
– Marlene Dobkin de Rios
The Neo-Shamanism PsyOp that is dominant today has distorted what Shamanism is truly about, mutating the tradition into a hyped attraction where all you have to pay is some money to have THE spiritual experience. The sales pitch – that these plants are the best route for achieving a so-called ‘accessing of higher realities’ – also tends to distract people from what deeper spiritual and esoteric work is all about, and even gives one the illusion that partaking in the brew means that one has “awoken”. It relates to being distracted by the ‘mysticism of phenomena’.
It is curious to see how much these false prophets, magicians and ‘christs’ impressed themselves on the imagination of the men and even more of the women of the past. It is the same today.
For there is a type of human being who declines all moral responsibility for himself or for those to whom he is in duty bound. One comes across this type quite often, always trying to find someone else to shoulder his responsibilities as long as this someone else possesses some kind of authority, earned or otherwise.
These people are open to any form of hypnotic suggestion and practically ask to be hypnotized. They are of good faith, but they search for the ‘marvelous’ because they are too weak or too lazy to undertake esoteric work successfully.
And the ‘wolves’ devour them finding justification in the fact that they are only the ‘scourings of humanity.’ But this is not true; for ‘scourings’ who are converted can become key figures on the esoteric chess-board. Mental apathy and emotional inertia are responsible for tipping man down the slope of least resistance even when armed with the best intentions, especially if he justifies himself for his human frailties by finding them normal, particularly on the sexual plane.”

Many people don’t know that psychedelic medicine plants were not always a part of many ancient shamanic practices, but were introduced at later stages of a culture’s history; nowadays, shamanism seems to be automatically equated with ayahuasca/medicine plants, which is by design:
“The phenomenology of the trance underwent many changes and corruptions, due in large part to confusion as to the precise nature of ecstasy. Concerning the original shamanic experience, narcotics are only a vulgar substitute for “pure” trance. The use of intoxicants is a recent innovation and points to a decadence in shamanic technique.
Narcotic intoxication is called on to provide an imitation of a state that the shaman is no longer capable of attaining otherwise. Decadence or vulgarization of a mystical technique – in ancient and modern India, and indeed all through the East, we constantly find this strange mixture of “difficult ways” and “easy ways” of realizing mystical ecstasy or some other decisive experience.”
– Mircea Eliade, Shamanism: Archaic Techniques of Ecstasy
The hype surrounding plant medicine tourism these days also shows itself whenever I mention to someone that I host retreats in Peru (without mentioning anything about ceremonies). Literally every single time, without exception, the person replies with “Ah, ayahuasca!”. I then have to explain to that person that our work is not focused on medicine plants, nor do we work with ayahuasca itself. Another reason we stopped working with huachuma is because we don’t want to attract people who just sign up because they “always wanted to go to Peru to participate in a medicine ceremony” (I lost count of how often I received this kind of message).
That’s not what our work is about…..even with the Huachuma ceremony as part of the program, it was just one day out of nine in total, and we made it clear that it was not the main purpose of the work we do. I also see more and more retreat promoters offering medicine plants as part of a “marketing strategy” to take advantage of the “peak experience” popularity/hype and attract more participants. This is especially the case in Peru – the plant craze is rampant all across the country, and it’s not a pretty picture, particularly in the “Sacred Valley”. A LOT has changed since I was there for the first time 12 years ago.
“It is probably no accident that the society which most consistently encouraged the use of these substances, India, produced one of the sickest social orders ever created by mankind, in which thinking men spent their time lost in the Buddha position under the influence of drugs exploring consciousness, while poverty, disease, social discrimination, and superstition reached their highest and most organised form in all history.”
– Professor David McClelland
My decision to discontinue any association with sobriety-obliterating plants/psychedelics is a reflection of my inner embodiment process. As mentioned previously, I’ve realized that using them has become not only an obstacle to the awaking process involved in soul individualization, but it’s also a liability (on numerous other levels) that I refuse to expose myself to anymore. Nor does this entire ‘frequency’ of plant ceremonies feel in alignment with the facilitating work that Fred and I do – we’ve reached an intuitive “acceptance” of this chapter being closed as a natural result of our own process and work…a shared journey which remains ever-changing with every new lesson learned (and subsequent wisdom gained). I’ll stress again (as followers of my writing and videos already know) that I don’t just stick to “one thing” – nor is my work based on a single modality/teaching. I’m an endlessly-open work in process (as is everyone else) within the context of soul evolution and the process of awakening.
Occult Hostile Entities and the Hyperdimensional MatrixHowever, the bigger issue with medicine work (one that ties into all the aforementioned distortions) is related to the “topic of all topics” – the hyperdimensional matrix control system. This is a very misunderstood or ignored topic that is oftentimes ridiculed or laughed off as “sci-fi nonsense”. Occult hostile forces have “hijacked” the “medicine world” in ways most people are not aware of – and given the “portal-opening” chemistry involved between human physiology and plant biology, that’s no surprise.
During this time and age of accelerated changes both within and without, there is an occult (hidden) spiritual war of dark versus light taking place “behind the veil”, acting THROUGH us… and it is intensifying. The dualistic matrix is stuck on overdrive, trying to lock as many humans as possible into a frequency prison so as to secure their “food” supply (and to counteract the awakening process of many individuals) while, at the same time, the Divine Force is also attempting to anchor itself to conduits of benevolent intent.
Opening oneself up – forcefully, I might add – to the invisible realms via external substances has the potential to create an opening (gateways) for entities to come through and parasitically attach themselves to the host/’beacon’. This danger has always been there with any kind of ritual/thought-loop, but it is clearly increasing with the global surge in neurology-altering indulgences. Basically, hyperdimensional entities are taking advantage of the increasing popularity of medicine plants (in particular ayahuasca) with the aim to “tag” more people and take over the human body vehicle via “soul snatching”. I recently came across this quote by Lisa Renee, which confirms what Fred and I have realized (and seen building up within the ‘scene’), especially over the past year:
“Ayahuasca, other ceremonial shamanic plants and psychedelic drugs are high risk behaviors that invite Attachments, Addiction Webbing and Possession for human beings on the planet during the Ascension Cycle at this time.
Ayahuasca plant spirit has been hijacked by many of the dark avatars and the consortium of NAA (Negative Alien Agenda) entities (occult hostile forces of the hyperdimensional matrix) that are on this planet during the Ascension Cycle looking to harvest Soul bodies and the possibility to take over the physical body. It is designed to interfere with true spiritual communication links and shut off the neurological communication functions between the persons consciousness and their higher spirit. It will install its own software programs to run the body, and brain in the autonomic functions of the Central Nervous System. It is usually an astral enlightenment program to trick the person into believing their artificially induced spiritual and altered consciousness state is real.
The Ayahuasca plant is connected to a massive spirit, that has grown in size from many people being falsely lead on this path and taking it at high quantities during this time. The design of this plant ceremony in most common cases, is that the spirit of the plant is manipulated by negative forces that want the original consciousness of the person taking the drug to leave the body and/or change Timelines.
The goal for the Imposter Spirit that want to take over the human body either in the current time, or in the future timelines, use the Ayahuasca plant to act as its conduit and dark portal opening to allow access into the inner spiritual sanctum of that person.”
– Lisa Renee, Energetic Synthesis
It is important to keep in mind that Lisa Renee is talking about “this time”, ie., a reference to the increasing intensification of energies that have arisen through desperate attempts by the occult matrix overlords to keep humanity in its frequency prison – which also includes the imitation/hijacking of “enlightening” experiences. All this implies (on the reader’s part) an understanding of the hyperdimensional matrix, in particular how negative entities can most often appear as benevolent forces in order to create “traps of agreement”. I feel there is a time and place wherein these plants can help as “tools” (as I have experienced myself) for shedding unhelpful patterns and healing traumas/addictions, but as with any external tool, it needs to be laid aside at some point by anyone who is sincerely engaged in the process of soul integration (embodiment). The process of awakening is one that requires avoidance of becoming attached to any single “path” and external catalysts.
This truth will be a particularly-challenging one to accept for people who have built their entire lives around medicine plants and/or who are very identified with them, especially when their “career” depends on the continued popularity and broad acceptance of neo-shamanistic rituals involving these substances.
Hence, triggers around this topic are inevitable, as I’ve already seen in some of the reactions when I posted the above quote by Lisa Renee on Facebook. Most often, these people have no real understanding of both the hyperdimensional matrix and the NAA which Lisa mentions, but they simply react mechanically, without understanding the context, and as a result hurl assumptions, fallacies, projections and even ad hominem attacks at the content. Those who accuse me of contradicting my previously-stated views on medicine plants while I engage in “fear mongering” have clearly never read my work in depth (hence, they usually take things out of context). And as stated several times already, I keep learning and growing as I go along, since seeking truth is a endless process – this truth also implies that there are times where I can (and will) change my viewpoint of things, based on internal experience in combination with research, resulting in new understandings and realizations. It wouldn’t really speak well for myself and my work if I’d still have the same stance on everything that I held 15 (or even five!) years ago. Also, I’m not here to tell anyone what they should or shouldn’t do…to each their own. Do what you feel is right for you, and live as you wish. But be aware of the dangers whilst in the process of seeking out answers, in particular when working with ayahuasca.
“The number one issue I see with people who have used ayahuasca is the infiltration of entities in their luminous energy field. In fact in my experience I have met very few people who have used ayahuasca who does not have entities attached to and/or influencing their luminous body. I am not implying ayahuasca usage was the sole source, primary source, or even a source, of these entities. As mentioned below, a great many people are (usually unknowingly) contending with the effects of psychic intrusion and attachments even if they’ve never used psychoactive plants. However, it’s worth pointing out, there are a noteworthy number of situations where I have been aware that a significant degree of the psychic intrusion the people I have met were experiencing was directly linked to their use of ayahuasca….
A lack of awareness around entities and the ways in which they relate with and affect Man is one aspect of what makes drinking ayahuasca a potentially detrimental experience. It’s one aspect of what lurks in ayahuasca’s shadow. My previous partner (an exceptionally talented Shamanic Energy Healer) has worked on significant numbers of clients who are dealing with the negative after-affects of their ayahuasca journeys. The #1 issue they face is entities in their luminous energy system. The consequences of such intrusion range widely. Insomnia, paranoia, emotional outburst, mood swings, depression, physical illness, and more….
Most of the people I’ve met who have come out of an ayahuasca ceremony with one or more newly acquired entities in their field are not at all aware of what they have picked up. At the most they may feel a little “off” but then put that down to being an aspect of their healing or adjustment process because of the “amazing ceremony” they just went through. In reality they have a hitch-hiker soon to become parasite.”

Ayahuasca Entity Possession – A Case StudyA year or so ago, I was working with someone who was dealing with an entity he took on after an ayahuasca ceremony. It’s the most severe type of possession (not merely an entity attachment situation) I have ever seen with a client. The entity literally took control of his body. As I was working/processing with him via Skype, the entity was interfering with our session, putting him into a spasm, choking him, etc.. This usually intensified when his girlfriend (who was present with him) and I were in the process of empowering him, and I was providing him with tools to work with and telling him that the entity had no power over him.
He had been dealing with this entity possession for about six months, and it was basically destroying his life. The entity had made him almost starve to death at one point because “it” told him that avoiding eating would be good for him. As a result, he had to be hospitalized after becoming extremely weak and losing way too much weight. He also had to get stomach surgery, since his body wouldn’t even accept/absorb food anymore. After his stay at the hospital, the doctors tried to put him on strong psychiatric drugs because they had diagnosed him as mentally insane (both psychotic and schizophrenic). They even tried to institutionalize him and put him into a psychiatric hospital. There had also been suicide attempts, triggered by the entity.
Thankfully, because of the strong support of his girlfriend (a true warrior woman), he rejected it all, and they fled to Mexico, looking for alternative help (because he was NOT crazy or insane, despite the labels that modern psychiatry tried to affix to him). Putting him on drugs and into a mental institution would have been the end of him. The entity constantly injected thought loops into him, telling him that he’s just a monkey on strings and had no personal power, and that “it” could do what it wanted with him. Sometimes, the entity spoke through him (and it was clear during those moments that it was not “him” speaking). It kept draining his life force and feeding off of all the fear and anxiety it instilled in him, even using his own body to punch himself, etc. – and that is just a few insights into what he was dealing with…there is way more I cannot share for privacy reasons. After he and his girlfriend came across my article “Reflections on Ayahuasca, Psychedelics, Marijuana, and a critical look at the Psychedelic Movement” they contacted me, because the article helped to put his experience into context and he felt relieved.
After establishing a connection with him, we both determined that he had taken on the entity at an ayahuasca ceremony that was held by a well-known shaman at a well-known ayahuasca center (within that “community”) in Iquitos, which is even recommended by a well-known “leader” in the ayahuasca scene/psychedelic movement. In fact, he found out about this shaman through a website where this popular ayahuasca advocate spoke highly about him. The way he took on the entity was a perfect example of a “trap of agreement” [key concept!] scenario, wherein this entity appeared in his ayahuasca vision/experience as a “spirit guide” or “angel”. It wasn’t threatening at all, and he innocently/naively invited it in.
There are more disturbing things surrounding this incident, especially with regards to the people involved and the people who run this ayahuasca center (including alcohol abuse by the “shaman”) which showed strong signs of dark shamanism at work. It seems very likely that he got “entity-tagged” by the shaman in order to keep him “sick” so that he would come back for more “treatments”. This is no different than a western doctor keeping his patients sick or addicted to pharmaceuticals so that they become dependent upon “scripts” for Big Pharma products. There are many tales of jungle doctors making such arrangements with hyperdimensional forces into order to obtain more worldly power and influence.
“Those of us who are conscious in the metaphysical realms are able to learn how to engage in psychic warfare. The common name for this is Black Magic or Sorcery. One tool available to the sorcerer is the psychic dart or psychic poison arrows. These darts can be utilised to carry mal-intent, or to carry toxic energy into the target’s luminous energy field.
When I was in Cuzco for a few weeks I met a German woman who lived in Old Cuzco. She trained as a traditional psychotherapist in Germany. She also trained with the Q’ero people in the remote regions of the Andes. One of the reasons she was living in Cuzco was to help “Westerners” who were “damaged” or deranged by their ayahuasca experiences. She told me about two-faced Shamans. She said that many of the ayahuasca shamans are two-faced, meaning they have the face of the beneficent healer on the one side, and the face of malevolence on the other side.
She told me about a few of the many tactics they employ for their own gain. One was that of a dart of intent. She said it is not at all uncommon for many of the Ayahuasqueros to place a dart into the luminous body of someone they are leading in ceremony. The dart is placed with the intent to influence that person to go back to their home country and tell many people about the Ayahuasquero, even to organise groups to come and work with the Ayahuasquero. The
Ayahuasquero does this for his own benefit, to get more paying “clients”. She told me many other stories about the shadow side of the ayahuasca trade in Peru. She said that of the hundreds of Ayahuasquero she has come into contact with, the vast majority are two-faced. That statement certainly seems to parallel Juan’s comment that most of the Ayahuasquero he has worked with in ceremony employ the assistance of demonic beings. I suspect the motivation for such things goes hand-in-hand. The German doctor had many stories about people who were rather messed up, confused, deranged, and mentally unstable as a result of their work with ayahuasca.”
– Jonathan Evatt, The Dark Side of Ayahuasca
With the help of his girlfriend I was able to get him back into his body, giving him some tools to work with (in relation to how to communicate to the entity, not giving in to the fear tactics and thought injections), and most importantly, empowering him. His girlfriend recorded the Skype session and sent it to his family. It helped them to open up to this topic and move past their perception of him as being “psychotic”. The couple flew back home to Canada, and he has received the support of his family without the threat of getting institutionalized.
At that point, he began trying a lot of “modalities” that didn’t do anything, including a Holographic Kinetics session (which is a good modality for clearing entities, generally speaking) that didn’t help…in fact, the HK practitioner – who I’ve come to learn doesn’t follow many of the established practices for this type of healing – couldn’t finish the session, since this case was way “out of her league”, so to speak (keep in mind that this is not just an average case of an entity attachment, but a demonic draconian possession.) This kind of ‘abdication of care’ is also due to a lack of experience (and sometimes, the resourcefulness) on the part of the facilitator, and it also depends on their level of being/awareness – nothing to do with the integrity of the modality itself. Just “learning” a modality at a week-long course is not enough. This level of parasitic takeover was also something that could not be removed with one session. I was working with him for about a month, and the therapy involved many hours over Skype. What I shared here is only a fraction of his story. But help was on the way, and we found someone who could assist him.
I got my brother Fred Clarke Alvarez involved, as he is very aware of many such cases occurring in Peru (and basically all over the world wherever ayahuasca is “served” these days), which many people have no idea about). Usually, these kinds of cases are being suppressed, and they happen far more often than people are aware of. Obviously, there is only so much I was able to do with Skype calls, and he needed hands-on help by a qualified and experienced practitioner who understands what is really going on. Our direct in-person sessions were the tipping point in his journey back to personal sovereignty.
I’ve recently talked to him – he’s doing much better, and he’s able to have a normal life again, but there is still work needed for full re-integration. Once he has healed himself fully, he will share his story in depth; potentially even writing a book about the process. This is his initiation right now. What is important to point out is that during the entire healing journey, he didn’t fall into the victim/blame trap, but instead took full responsibility for what had happened to him, owning up to his own blindspots, wounds and shortcomings that got him into the situation (as I was able to provide mirroring as well in that regard). That attitude/mind-state (of not getting caught in the victim/blame spiral) empowered him and helped him to heal, for entities feed off of the shame/regret/anger of these particular emotional frequency-projections, and want us to become stuck within them. All there is are lessons, constantly.
High SensitivityI have also noticed that certain people (myself included) are – or have become – way too sensitive to medicine plant/psychedelic induced states of consciousness (including cannabis). It can push the astral body of a person beyond its ‘bandwidth’ limits, which can actually damage the aura, create cracks in the energy body, and leave one vulnerable to entity attachments/interferences – all of which I have experienced myself, having learned the hard way. That is one of the reasons why I focus so much on grounding and embodiment practices, in order to fully anchor the soul into the avatar-body. Most people are out of touch with their bodies to begin with, and live mostly confined to a head-isolated existence.
Furthermore, wanderers, renegades, or star seeds/beings (individuals whose souls have incarnated from a higher density – fourth or sixth density – into our third density with a specific mission to accomplish in order to assist humanity during this Time of Transition) usually already have a hard time with regards to managing life within this realm. Many of them struggle to accept (and be in) this body to begin with. They are the “system busters”, challenging the status quo, and don’t fit in with most of humanity. Due to entering the lower density of physical life, they have forgotten that it was their conscious choice to do so in order to perform certain tasks (according to a mission profile). Their memory from the “ancient home” is buried deep within them, and requires awakening. This purpose is an ongoing discovery that depends on conscious self-development and gaining higher Knowledge – I’ve written in in depth about this topic here: “Wanderers, Purpose, and Esoteric Work in this Time of Transition”. This essay also addresses the New Age deception of the wanderer concept (and related ego-traps).
Wanderers are not only subject (as is everyone else) to hyperdimensional manipulation in this Matrix Control System, but they tend to be the PRIMARY targets of the occult hostile 4D STS forces, because their mission obviously interferes with the plans of the hidden controllers of this world. Hence, these “star beings” are much more vulnerable when placed within artificially-induced states of higher consciousness via external substances. Having said that, in the past, some of my experiences with psychedelics and medicine plants have helped me to “remember” why I chose to be here, and seemed to have activated something deep within me, like a positive trigger. So there is a paradox in all of this as well.
However, as mentioned before, I strongly feel that the times have changed. The veil is getting thinner, as the different realms breach into each other, creating more openings and portals for occult hostile forces to leak through. Working with medicine plants in this day and age is very different when compared to a few years ago. We are living in very different times, energetically speaking, and everything is intensifying exponentially.
I also want to acknowledge that for some people, there may still be some benefits to working with medicine plants in the right context, set and setting. In the end, it’s a personal choice, and as I said before, I’m not here to tell anyone what they should or shouldn’t be doing. You need to decide for yourself. However, rest assured that you do not need any “medicine plants” to heal or “wake up”, so don’t believe the hype.
For me personally, in this day and age, as the energies are intensifying, the risks of working with these psychoactive plants far outweigh the benefits, hence I’m stepping away from the “medicine path”. My recent inner experiences have also clearly shown me that that using medicine plants is becoming an obstacle in my personal process of soul integration and awakening, regardless of any possible entity interference “side effects”. For me, the focus has shifted towards doing the work of naturally anchoring to higher consciousness frequencies via the embodiment process and reconnecting with my inner body-technology (DNA activation) without any external substance/catalyst or “medicine”.
Misperceptions about Entity Attachments and how to deal with Occult AttacksFor the record, I’m not saying that ingesting medicine plants will automatically result in entity interference/attachments. To add another paradox, sometimes the right use of medicine plants in the right set and setting can even assist in detaching an entity from its host (as Fred and I have witnessed). However, everyone is subjected to these interferences on a daily basis, with or without medicine plants/psychedelics, as we are all under the influence of higher realm occult forces. As I’ve written about in several other essays, as long as we are not fully embodied (soul integration) while establishing zero-point non-reactive consciousness – as long as we have not healed our wounds, trauma, conditioning, and blind spots (which we ALL have to varying degrees) – we are being interfered with (and manipulated) in ways that most of us have no awareness of. This not about fear-mongering, either, but simply reflects the reality of the universe (seen and unseen) that we live in.
One of the questions I’m being asked a lot – which relates to occult hostile attacks and entity attachments – is how to deal with them. I have noticed that many people (who are aware of the hyperdimensional matrix and are dealing with these attacks – including clients I work with) tend to give these occult forces way more power than they actually have.
This can also result in unnecessary feelings of fear and paranoia (including victim/blame consciousness), which – ironically – these forces aim to instill in the seeker, for it creates the frequency they feed off of, and widens the entry point (like a crack in in the energetic armor of the aura).
Many people also desperately look for someone else to remove an entity and clear them from any occult interference. It’s a topic I have addressed before:
One of the assumptions I hear most people make is that someone else just needs to remove their entity attachment or etheric implant and then all is fine and good. That is not the case. Removing an entity is not enough, for it/they will come back ten-fold (via attachment or interference) if the “entry point” is not healed/closed. A metaphor might be when you get surgery and remove a tumor – post-operation, you still have to take care of the wound (and obviously work with a surgeon who knows what he/she is doing, i.e. be discerning about the many sketchy “healers” out there) so it doesn’t result in infection; you also have to look at lifestyle changes so that the tumor/cancer doesn’t grow back.
It’s a holistic approach on an energetic level, and much depends on the client taking responsibility for the healing process, and not falling into victim consciousness or “blaming entities”, which I tend to see a lot of in people I discuss these topics with; at the end of the day, it’s about you stepping into your own embodied warrior power and sovereign self, and firmly and steadily ejecting/rejecting the entity interference yourself. That is more powerful than someone else doing it for you.
– from TIMELINE-REALITY SPLIT, FREQUENCY VIBRATION, AND THE HIDDEN FORCES OF LIFE
This subject also relates to the Trap of Paranoia and Attachment to Experiences. From another essay I wrote:
I see more and more people becoming aware of the hyperdimensional matrix forces and how they might possibly be interfering with their own lives, working through them or through others close to them. This is encouraging to witness, for awareness and education about this topic helps many people to heal and work through their tribulations. At the same time, I also see people getting caught up in paranoia mode – or the victim/blame complex kicks in. Oftentimes, I also notice (in some people I work with) that they are actually not dealing with entity interference, but with their own thought projections (based on fear/paranoia) that have taken on a “life” of their own and have become “entities”, so to speak, but are not directly-related to the occult hostile forces interjecting from a different realm.
Sometimes people can also get very attached to their experiences and “story” on an unconscious level, while at the same time wanting to heal and move on (via a conscious healing process). This unconscious attachment and inner contradiction results in an inability to fully let go and heal, as the ego actually feeds off of the story/experience by strongly identifying with it. Usually, there is an unconscious “self-importance” or a sense of feeling “special” at play here in relation to having these experiences which define one’s self-image (i.e. who we “think” we are).
Sometimes, it is also just an underlying morbid fascination with the topic, and a part of themselves (the “predator mind”) that actually “likes” the drama identifies with this subject. Essentially, it still provides the frequency which these forces lock onto; meanwhile, none of this is recognized by the person on a conscious level, which shows how tricky it can be to deal with these forces in order to establish a sovereign embodied state of being (complete with energetic boundaries).
While it is obviously important to understand the “modus operandi” of the hyperdimensional entities and educate ourselves (and others) about it, we need to be careful not give “them” more power by giving them too much “attention”. It’s not a black & white scenario and as always, each situation is different.
– from THE PERILOUS PATH TOWARDS AWAKENING
Know that you are powerful, and already have all the tools at your disposal to counteract any attacks. While any occult attack/interference is specific and “calibrated” for each person (since it always relates to a corresponding “issue” or frequency/vibration within you), there are general “rules” that can stop any form of attack and even dispel an entity attachment (by yourself).
This is also important to keep in mind with regards to the aforementioned issues with ayahuasca and other medicine plants/psychedelics. While taking these substances can increase the risk of entity interference, there still needs to be something WITHIN YOU that responds – or corresponds to – the intrusion, be it via a tap of agreement (calling beings in) or these frequencies hooking into your blind spots/wounds.
In my own battles with occult hostile forces, especially the more severe ones several years ago (in a period of intense hyperdimensional warfare), I was able to exorcise entities that were attached to me on my own (I have shared such an experience in HERE) as well as counteracting attacks and interferences without the help/need of any outside assistance. I’m not saying that it is easy (and it depends on many factors) and often times we do need help, especially when starting out on the “clear out” campaign…I have learned the hard way, via trial and error. These experiences also showed me that these hostile forces serve a ‘teaching function’ (in light of soul evolution/the process of awakening), confronting the sincere seeker with tests, ordeals and tribulations that need to be learned/passed before he/she can move on to the next level or stage. Many people can get stuck in that stage, caught in fear, paranoia or blame/victim consciousness.
One of these “tools” is to learn not to react, to not give in to any thought injections (and resulting triggered feelings) – to comprehend that these thoughts and emotional states of despair or depression, etc. are not one’s own, and to REJECT them (literally) as not being a reflection of one’s true Self (and correspondingly, to not believe in self-diminishing thoughts that you think are your own.) In the past, I made it harder on myself than it had to be, especially when I was caught in the tunnel vision of Jungian Psychology, assuming that everything I experienced and encountered was “my shadow” and needed to be “integrated”. While shadow work is obviously important and I value Jungs’ research a lot (and still apply it), it has its limitations when taken as a foundation in light of the “topic of all topics”.
As with most every subject I write about, it’s not black and white. The most important part in it all is the embodiment journey – to stay in the body (getting out of the head!) while developing extra-sensory perception (which happens “automatically” if one is sincerely engaged in the process of embodiment, i.e. soul-integration) in order to discern internal from external suggestions. This leads to the perception of these forces directly, establishing what Sri Aurobindo called “yogic consciousness” beyond the five senses (which many non-Western cultures have identified, to varying degrees) – this also takes practice, with a lengthy process of trial and error.
The key point to embrace (with regards to allowing true “spiritual power” to counter-act any form of attack) is to establish equanimity, inner stillness and calmness, i.e. zero-point non-reactive consciousness. The quieter you are within, the stronger you become (including your energetic boundary), and thus the easier it gets to deal with any form of occult attack. Gradually, with this development, these forces will find you far less appealing as a possible host, for you refuse to “give” them what they want.
I also work with prayer, connecting to and calling in the Divine Force (the True Light) when needed, which is really based on a continued sincere aspiration towards union with the Divine (the whole aim of the process of Awakening…to commune with the whole of which we are inexorably an expression of). That is VERY different than calling in archangels, deities, or entities in general, which most often can result in a trap of agreement when there is lack of discernment with negative entities appearing as “positive” beings, which also includes “false light” appearances:
“To say that all light is good is as if you said that all water is good – or even that all clear or transparent water is good: it would not be true. One must see what is the nature of the light or where it comes from or what is in it, before one can say that it is the true Light.
False lights exist and misleading lustres, lower lights too that belong to the being’s inferior reaches. One must therefore be on one’s guard and distinguish; the true discrimination has to come by growth of the psychic feeling and a purified mind and experience.
The word “Appearances” refers to the forms they take in order to rule the world, forms often false and always incarnating falsehood, sometimes pseudo-divine. Often, representing themselves as divine powers, they mislead, give erring suggestions and impulsions and pervert the inner life.”
– Sri Aurobindo, The Hidden Forces of Life
You don’t need a “middle man” to connect with the Divine, which is essentially expressed through your ‘I AM’ presence, connected to Spirit within via embodied soul anchoring (bringing the soul/psychic being to the forefront, and not becoming identified with the conditioned-ego personality). This form of prayer is also not coming from a victim/fear state and/or desperate “begging”, but is rooted in the aforementioned equanimity in conjunction with Faith and Trust, essentially connecting you to your spiritual warrior self (higher self), claiming your sovereignty (not to be confused with “independence” – the ego’s distortion of “sovereignty”) in alignment with – and as transducer for – the Divine.
About three years ago (after the aforementioned phase of hyperdimensional warfare), I came across the work of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother (Integral Yoga). Their work and suggestions regarding how to deal with occult hostile forces have confirmed what I have experienced, learned and applied for myself (see quotes below). I’m still dealing with occult interferences and attacks here and there, but nothing near as severe as what transpired a few years back. I can now spot them much more quickly, before they have an opportunity to enter and/or enable their suggestions to take a hold within me – I firmly but calmly reject them as being not an expression of my true Self.
Still, the learning continues, but I also know that I will never be confronted with more than I can handle. Again, from a higher perspective, all there is are lessons and initiations (specific to one’s unique path) in light of soul evolution and the process of awakening. A consistent meditation practice (or any body-mind practice) helps to “train” oneself to stay rooted in equanimity, in the body, while detaching from the predator monkey mind. Learning to calm the mind is really the foundational key within any spiritual work, and it’s especially needed for the times that we find ourselves in right now, so that we may avoid mechanically reacting to “outside” circumstances (and thus giving away our power).
“The [occult] hostile forces exist and have been known to Yogic experience ever since the days of the Veda and Zoroaster in Asia and the mysteries of Egypt and Chaldea and the Cabbala and in Europe also from old times. These things of course cannot be felt or known so long as one lives in the ordinary mind and its ideas and perceptions — for there there are only two categories of influences recognizable, the ideas and feelings and actions of oneself and others and the play of environment and physical forces.
But once one begins to get the inner view of things, it is different. One begins to experience that all is an action of forces, forces of Prakriti psychological as well as physical which play upon our nature — and these are conscious forces or are supported by a consciousness or consciousnesses behind. One is in the midst of a big universal working and it is impossible any longer to explain everything as the result of one’s own sole and independent personality.
You yourself have at one time written that your crises of despair etc. came upon you as if thrown on you and worked themselves out without your being able to determine or put an end to them. That means an action of universal forces and not merely an independent action of your own personality, though it is something in your nature of which they make use. But you are not conscious, and others also, of this intervention and pressure at its source for the reason I state.
Yes, they [the hostile forces] have their own world and, if they kept to it, there could be no objection to their existence. There is a world that is natural to them and has its own rhythm, its own dharma. But, they want to dominate the evolution and for that purpose they have taken their station in the vital worlds which influence the earth nature and give it its materials for life.
As for the greater [divine] Forces (e.g. Overmind) they are dynamic and try always to make consciousness effective, but they insist on consciousness, while the hostiles care nothing for that — the more unconscious you are and their automatic tool, the better they are pleased.
The hostiles have themselves bodies though not of a gross physical kind — they see, but with a subtle seeing that includes not only bodies, but movements of forces, thoughts, feelings. Very great are the occult powers of the hostile beings — it is their occult powers and knowledge of occult processes that make them so strong and effective.
The Asuras and Rakshasas etc. do not belong to the earth, but to supraphysical worlds; but they act upon the earth life and dispute the control of human life and character and action with the Gods. They are the Powers of Darkness combating the Powers of Light. Sometimes they possess men in order to act through them, sometimes they take birth in a human body.
These things [occult demonic beings materializing in physical form] are possible but they do not usually happen — because it is difficult for beings of the subtle worlds to materialise to such an extent or for a long time. They prefer to act by influencing human beings, using them as instruments or taking possession of a human mind and body.
The hostile Forces are Powers of Darkness who are in revolt against the Light and the Truth and want to keep this world under their rule in darkness and ignorance. Whenever anyone wants to reach the Truth, to realize the Divine, they stand in the way as much as possible. But what they are specially against is the work the Mother and myself are doing, to bring down the Light here into the earth and establish the Truth — that would mean their own expulsion. So they always try to destroy the work as a whole and to spoil the sadhana [spiritual work/practice] of each sadhak [seeker]. It is not only you who are attacked: all are attacked more or less — especially when there is a great progress, these forces try to interfere.
The prolongation of the difficulty and its acuteness come from the fact that there are Forces in Nature, not personal or individual but universal, which live upon these movements and through them have long controlled the individual nature. These do not want to lose their rule and so when these movements are thrown out, they throw them back on the sadhak in strong waves or with great violence. Or they create in the vital a great depression, discouragement, despair — that is their favorite weapon — because it is losing its former field of desires and has not yet in any continuity something that would replace it, the assured continuous psychic or spiritual condition or experience. To prevent that is the whole effort of these Forces.
So they create these upheavals and the vital admits them because of its old habit of response to the lower Forces. At the same time they put in suggestions to the mind so as to make it also accept the disturbance, discouragement and depression. That is what I meant by saying that these are attacks from outside and must be rejected. If they cannot be rejected altogether, yet one must try to keep a part of the mind conscious which will refuse to admit the suggestions or share in the depression and trouble, — which will say firmly, “I know what this is and I know that it will pass and I shall resume my way to the goal which nothing can prevent me from reaching, since my soul’s will is and will always be for that.” You have to reach the point where you can do that always; then the power of the Forces to disturb will begin to diminish and fall away.
The difficulty is always that something in the nature gives a hold to the attack. It either still indulges it and likes it or even, if wanting to be free, is too accustomed to receive and respond to the old feelings, thoughts, suggestions and does not yet know how not to respond. The first thing is for the mental being to stand back, refuse to accept, say “This is no longer mine.” Then, even if the vital feeling responds to the attack, one part of the nature can be free and observe and discourage it. The next thing is for this free part to impose the same will of detachment on the vital so that after a time this also when the attack comes feels that it is something foreign, not its own, — as if a stranger had come into the room and was trying to impose his ideas or his will on the inmates. After that it becomes more easy to get rid of it altogether.”
– Sri Aurobindo, Letters on Yoga
Question: ‘How is one to meet adverse forces—forces that are invisible and yet quite living and tangible?’
The Mother: “A great deal depends upon the stage of development of your consciousness. At the beginning, if you have no special occult knowledge and power, the best you can do is to keep as quiet and peaceful as possible. If the attack takes the form of adverse suggestions try quietly to push them away, as you would some material object. The quieter you are, the stronger you become. The firm basis of all spiritual power is equanimity. You must not allow anything to disturb your poise: you can then resist every kind of attack. If, besides, you possess sufficient discernment and can see and catch the evil suggestions as they come to you, it becomes all the more easy for you to push them away; but sometimes they come unnoticed, and then it is more difficult to fight them. When that happens, you must sit quiet and call down peace and a deep inner quietness.
Hold yourself firm and call with confidence and faith: if your aspiration is pure and steady, you are sure to receive help.
Attacks from adverse forces are inevitable: you have to take them as tests on your way and go courageously through the ordeal. The struggle may be hard, but when you come out of it, you have gained something, you have advanced a step. There is even a necessity for the existence of the hostile forces. They make your determination stronger, your aspiration clearer.
It is true, however, that they exist because you gave them reason to exist. So long as there is something in you which answers to them, their intervention is perfectly legitimate. If nothing in you responded, if they had no hold upon any part of your nature, they would retire and leave you. In any case, they need not stop or hamper your spiritual progress.
The only way to fail in your battle with the hostile forces is not to have a true confidence in the divine help. Sincerity in the aspiration always brings down the required succour. A quiet call, a conviction that in this ascension towards the realisation you are never walking all alone and a faith that whenever help is needed it is there, will lead you through, easily and securely.
If you think or feel that they come from inside, you have possibly opened yourself to them and they have settled in you unnoticed. The true nature of things is one of harmony; but there is a distortion in certain worlds that brings in perversion and hostility. If you have a strong affinity for these worlds of distortion, you can become friends with the beings that are there and answer fully to them. That happens, but it is not a very happy condition. The consciousness is at once blinded and you cannot distinguish the true from the false, you cannot even tell what is a lie and what is not.
In any case, when an attack comes the wisest attitude is to consider that it comes from outside and to say, “This is not myself and I will have nothing to do with it.” You have to deal in the same way with all lower impulses and desires and all doubts and questionings in the mind. If you identify yourself with them, the difficulty in fighting them becomes all the greater; for then you have the feeling that you are facing the never easy task of overcoming your own nature. But once you are able to say, “No, this is not myself, I will have nothing to do with it”, it becomes much easier to disperse them.”
– The Mother, Collected Works of the Mother (Questions & Answers)
Empower Yourself!In closing, I’d like to address a very important point. I’ve already mentioned it above, in the story of the young man who took on an entity after an ayahuasca ceremony. This point involves the key “ingredient” in his healing journey. The most powerful “attitude” to establish in any healing work for ourselves (and to help make this world a better place) is to never fall into the victim/blame trap, be it concerning other people, the “system”, any situation we got ourselves into, or even blaming medicine plants and entities. Rather, we take on full responsibility for our own lives and choices, checking our own blindspots, wounds and shortcomings – this attitude/mind-state of not getting caught up in victim/blame “looping” is a very empowering evolutionary step, connecting you to your true self/divine guidance and establishing the right foundation for any healing process.
Keep in mind that entities feed off of the victim/blame frequency/projections and want us to play it out endlessly – taking responsibility doesn’t imply that we “blame” ourselves either, which can result in toxic guilt.
Rather, it requires humility (not to be mistaken for self-diminishment/self-pity) towards seeing own our “mistakes”, or towards making amends if we have hurt another person. Forgiveness for both self and others plays a big role in this process as well. In the end, this reality is one big classroom….and there are really no “mistakes” or “failures” from the perspective of soul evolution.
Understanding the trap of the perpetrator/savior/victim triangle is key for anyone who wants to heal, evolve, grow, and awaken. I recommend reading this article for more on this topic: “The Three Faces of Victim – An Overview of the Drama Triangle”
We all can get triggered at times, and act from our neurotic ego: seeking validation/attention/co-dependent love; shaming others; punishing them and putting them down. We make mistakes, poor choices, and have our down days, but all of this is part of the human experience, especially during these crazy Time of Transition days, with intense energies engulfing the planet at the present time. So much is happening on unseen levels which the mind cannot even get close to comprehending.
In the end it’s about self-love. Narcissism is “pathological” self-love, an inflated egoic shadow-state, and has nothing to do with the self-love I speak of – this affirming harmonic doesn’t need praise, validation or attention from outside ourselves. It is not concerned with the opinions which others have of us. It doesn’t listen to the “negative introvert”, our self-diminishing thoughts of guilt, shame, “not good enough” programs and insecurity, nor will it get inflated by flattery and compliments. It is also not an aloof/intellectual state of being, detached from our body and emotions. It is connected to the divine within us – something that is untouchable and cannot be defined nor described by the limitations of language.
The most important thing you can do to raise your frequency/vibration is to love yourself. Whatever happens to you, whatever shortcomings and issues you may have, whatever mistakes and poor choices you have made, whatever people have “done to you” – love yourself, be good to yourself and others, and forgive yourself and others. This doesn’t mean to justify your shortcomings (spiritual bypassing) or put up with abuse (boundaries!); nor does it mean to cover anything up or ‘put lipstick on a pig’. It simply means not getting stuck in the blame, shame, and guilt programs, and to see life through more compassionate and forgiving eyes in light of universal pain and suffering.
Don’t beat yourself up with this process; there is no need to get frustrated with others, either. Some people may lash out at you, attack you and attempt to shame you, but in the end, it is their own unacknowledged pain which they are projecting onto you; even people who constantly “scream” at the world about how everything is fucked up tend to project their own pain and frustration onto the world and others.
I’m not suggesting that everything “out there” is a projection of our shadow (that’s the New Age trap/distortion of “you spot it, you got it”), nor does what I state imply inaction/silence in the face of atrocities, abuse and the pathologies of official cult-ure. It’s not about escaping into a New Age “love bubble” either. The darkness needs to be made conscious, both within AND without. However, when we start to hate others, and project our disgust onto them – or think that others deserve to be punished and shamed, or even killed (no matter what they have done) – then we play the game on the level of the “predator”, the negative hyperdimensional entities who are keeping humanity in a frequency asylum. In short, we become that what many of us are fighting against, and thus feed into their agenda…pun intended.
The Mysterious Secret Society of Ancient India and The Nine Unknown Men of Ashoka
There is a pervasive legend in India of a secret organization that allegedly has a vast amount of advanced knowledge in their possession. Believed to have been formed over 2000 years ago, the Nine Unknown Men is widely suspected of manipulating political and societal trends in order to further the personal goals of the Nine. But is such a secret organization a reality or is it merely the stuff of legend?
Origin Story The society of the Nine Unknown Men was formed shortly after 226 BC by Emperor Ashoka. Grandson of the legendary Emperor who unified the Indian subcontinent, Chandragupta, Ashoka was anxious to uphold his grandfather’s legacy and maintain the empire. In the region between Calcutta and Madras, the Kalingan’s resisted the imperial rule, leading to an all-out war. Ashoka’s vastly superior forces are said to have killed over 100,000 of Kalinga’s warriors and deported over 150,000 of the region’s villagers. Even though he had won the war, Ashoka was aghast at the carnage such a victory entailed. From then on, he swore off violence forever.
Emperor Ashoka is best known for his conversion to Buddhism and his efforts to spread the peaceful religion throughout India as well as Malaya, Ceylon, and Indonesia. His efforts contributed to Buddhism’s later rise in China, Nepal, Tibet, and Mongolia. Ashoka was a sworn vegetarian but did not force others to do likewise. Indeed, he was incredibly tolerant of other religious sects. He did, however, prohibit the consumption of alcohol.
Most importantly, “he renounced the idea of trying to integrate the rebellious people, declaring that the only true conquest was to win men’s hearts by observance of the laws of duty and piety, because the Sacred Majesty desired that all living creatures should enjoy security, peace and happiness and be free to live as they pleased” (Pauwels and Bergier).
So committed was the Emperor to this mission that he sought to prevent his fellow man from putting their intelligence towards perpetrating evil, particular the evil involved with warfare. The task of collecting, preserving, and containing all knowledge was too great for one emperor to do alone, not the least because of the other duties required by ruling an empire. So Ashoka summoned nine of the most brilliant minds in India at the time. For security purposes, the identity of these men was never made public. Together, these geniuses formed a secret society that came to be known as the Nine Unknown Men.
The organization set up accumulating all of the scientific knowledge they could, from natural science to psychology to the composition of matter. Fearing that if ordinary men were given scientific knowledge they would use it for destruction, only the Nine Men were allowed to study and develop scientific theories and technology. To better accomplish this daunting task, each of the nine was charged with a specific book that he was to update, revise, and ultimately perfect the knowledge therein. When one of the nine could no longer complete the task – whether from the wish to retire, fading health, or death - the obligation was passed to a chosen successor. The number of members in the society was always to be nine. Thus the society of the Nine Unknown Men has allegedly lived on for over 2000 years.
1923 Book Speculation about the contents of each of the nine books varies widely. Talbot Mundy, an English writer, published a book entitled The Nine Unknown Men in 1923, which contained a list of the nine books. This list has come to be generally accepted.
“1. Propaganda : The first book dealt with techniques of propaganda and psychological warfare. “The most dangerous of all sciences is that of molding mass opinion, because it would enable anyone to govern the whole world,” according to Mundy.
2. Physiology : The second book discussed physiology and explains how to kill a person simply by touching him or her, known as the “the touch of death,” simply by the reversal of a nerve impulse. It is said that the martial art of Judo is a result of “leakages” from the second book.
3. Microbiology: The third volume focused on microbiology and biotechnology.
4. Alchemy The fourth dealt with alchemy and transmutation of metals. According to another legend, in times of severe drought, temples and religious relief organizations received large quantities of gold from “a secret source.”
5. Communication : The fifth book contained a study of all means of communication, terrestrial and extraterrestrial. Alluding then that the Nine Unknown Men were aware of alien presence.
6. Gravity: The sixth book focused on the secrets of gravitation and actual instructions on how to make the ancient Vedic Vimana, (like Vaiminika Shastra on aerospace technology).
7. Cosmogony: The seventh contained cosmogony and matters of the universe.
8. Light: The eighth dealt with light including the speed and how to use it as a weapon.
9. Sociology: The ninth and final book discussed sociology. It included rules for the evolution of societies and the means of foretelling their decline.” (Mundy paraphrased by Ancient Explorers)
Fact or Myth?
But were the Nine Unknown Men real? Ashoka may very well have asked nine men of unknown identity to gather scientific knowledge, particularly with regards to its application to warfare. This was a very fractious time and other Emperors have been known to order similar initiatives.
These men may have explored different empires’ battle tactics and training, weapons manufacturing, horse/elephant handling, and maybe even gunpowder usage. However, an ancient group living on in secrecy for over 2000 years, controlling global events from the remote jungles of India with not a hint of modern equipment, infrastructure, or technology is hard to believe. For many, the legend is most likely just a legend.

What Mystics, Prophets and Ancient Cultures Revealed About Hyper-Dimensional Entities
By Makia Freeman
Hyper-dimensional entities have been recognized, discussed and warned about for literally millennia, throughout the history of humanity. Naturally, there are many people who scoff at the very idea of such beings, believing them to be fictitious inv entions of the human mind. However, the fact that so many cultures, traditions, religions and spiritualities have discussed the nature of these creatures, using different terms but essentially describing the same thing, gives credence to the idea that they exist. We have been cautioned for millennia that humanity is under psychic attack by a group of energetic, discarnate beings that seed thoughts of judgement, separation, anxiety, anger and fear in order to generate loosh (negative emotional energy) that they siphon off as food. In searching for what force is really behind the construction of the New World Order and the grander conspiracy, one is bound to investigate these hyper-dimensional entities, who may be the original handlers, puppet masters and mind control perpetrators manipulating the whole of mankind.
Beyond the Frequency Band of Human PerceptionWe have to take seriously the idea that the hidden ruler(s) of this crazy world are invisible, or at least, operate from frequencies beyond normal perception. After all, no one knows exactly from where thoughts originate. If there were a force that could control which thoughts are beamed into the mind, then every single living person would be vulnerable to psychic attack. These hyper-dimensional entities are said to be able to infiltrate your mind, make their voice sound like yours and entice you to do their bidding – all with the aim of generating fear, which is their food. Are they are the “gods” of yore that demanded sacrifice? Are they the evil spirits that possess people? Are they the masters of trickery who continually try to keep us in fear and out of our center of power – our heart? What follows is a list of 10 different traditions and cultures that describe these hyper-dimensional entities using their own terms and ideas.
1. The Archons (Gnosticism)The ancient Gnostics were named after gnôsis, the Greek word for knowledge or insight. Gnosticism was a loosely organized religious and philosophical movement that flourished in the 1st and 2nd centuries AD. The Gnostics believed that the material world was the result of a primordial error on the part of a divine being (usually called Sophia [Wisdom] or the Logos). They attributed the creation and control of the material world to a semi-divine, ignorant creature known, who was called Saklas (the fool), Ialdebaoth (the blind god) or the Demiurge (from the Greek dêmiourgos which means craftsman, but which the Gnostics meant as the architect or lesser creative force).
In Gnostic mythology/cosmology, both Sophia and the Demiurge are subordinate to the Supreme Being/Cosmos (God). The Demiurge was antagonistic to anything spiritual, and had a group of servants known as the Archons (Greek meaning ruler). The research of Gnostic scholar John Lash reveals that the Gnostics were early mystic shamans who reached high states of consciousness, knew their direct connection with the Cosmos and honored the importance of the female principle (Sophia) to live balanced lives. He concludes that the Catholic Church feared their power, so it killed them and banished the survivors underground.
The Dead Sea Scrolls discovered in Qumran Palestine and the Nag Hammadi Codices discovered in Egypt (both in the 1940s) are important Gnostic texts which expose the truth about the Archons. Here is a quote from the Apocryphon of John, a Nag Hammadi text:
“They sought to overpower humanity in its psychological and perceptual functions… although they saw that human thinking was superior to theirs… For indeed their delight is bitter and their beauty is depraved. And their triumph is in deception (apaton), leading astray, for their own structure is without divinity.”
The Gnostics were postulating the idea of a predatory alien presence that took delight in others’ pain and that used deception as a tool. Disconnected from their own power (“without divinity”), they became parasites that had to hijack the energy of others to survive.
2. Demons (Christianity)These same forces are called Demons in the Christian tradition. In this famous quote from Ephesians 6:12, the creatures are actually called “rulers” and “authorities”, which directly echoes the language used to describe the Archons in the Dead Sea Scrolls and Nag Hammed texts:
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
Christianity also contains a tradition of exorcism of evil spirits. The Gospel contains many stories of Jesus casting out the evil spirits. This tradition continues to the current day. Father Gabriele Amorth was a former official in the Vatican who served as exorcist for the diocese of Rome for 30 years. He was also the founder of the International Association of Exorcists.
3. Jinn / Djinn (Arabian mythology)In pre-Islamic Arabia before the rise of the prophet Muhammad in the 6th century CE, Arabian mythology contains references to the Jinn or Djinn, who were considered to be supernatural spirits (and could be good or bad). Jinn is a classification of a number of different types of supernatural being. The book The Evolution of the Concept of the Jinn from Pre-Islam to Islam describes how they could appear as pure spiritual beings or angels or demons, as indicated by Ibn Manzur, in “Lisan al-Arab”:
“The people of the Jahiliyyah called angels – peace be upon them – jinn because they were invisible from sight …”
They could also be tangible creatures, particularly with animal-like characteristics, as stated by The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics:
“… were not pure spirits, for they were often represented as hairy and often as having the form of an ostrich or a snake.”
The book mentions 4 specific types of Jinn in the pre-Islamic world:
1. Ghul: we get the English word “ghoul” from this. The ghuls were desert demons believed to rob graves and devour corpses. They seemed to appear in many different forms, often animalistic. They could appear and disappear “like the light of a torch”. They left a physical corpse behind when killed, thus the poem by Ta’abbata Sharran:
“I spent the night leaning on her, waiting for the morning to see what I caught. Then I found two eyes in an ugly head, similar to the head of a cat with a forked tongue.”
2. Si’lah: The difference between this and the former is not clear to me. They seem to be more sneaky and clever. A story exists of a one marrying and bearing human children. Possible other differences may be that they are active during the day, instead of at night, or that the Si’lah is female, and the Ghul male. neither seems to be universally respected though.
3. Shiqq: this was a man with only half of a body who would beat a human to death if encountered. From Al-Jahiz:
“There, a shiqq appeared to him. He had only one hand, one eye, one leg. They recited poetry to each other, then they hit each other, and both of them fell dead.”
4. Shaytan: this will be expanded upon below. The English word “Satan” is derived from this Arabic word. They were noted for being smart, cunning, powerful and generally rebellious.
4. Shaytan / Satan (Islam)The Shaytan (plural Shayatin) belongs to pre-Islamic Arabian mythology, however there is a story that Muhammad was tricked by one (although there are debates by scholars over the historicity of this incident), realized it, and came out publicly the next day to correct what he said. In the Quran, there is the story of Iblis, the first Shaytan, who was apparently made by Allah (God) from a fire so pure that not even smoke could mar its beauty.
This is interesting, because reference to the Archons as made from smokeless fire crops up repeatedly across different traditions. Iblis refused to bow to Adam (who was after all a mere man made of clay), so Allah banished him from heaven. Iblis swore to take revenge on Adam and all clay-men like him.
Iblis is considered the lord of all Shayatin and is said to have gathered an army of Shayatin and Jinn to persecute mankind. A Shaytan is described as a sweeping force and a whispering voice, visible only to donkeys, who bray desperate warnings when they see it approaching. This again is noteworthy, since this highlights the theme that these hyper-dimensional entities are outside the normal range of normal human perception – but not outside the perceptions of other creatures such as animals like donkeys (or cats), and not outside the range of human perception when a person (through will, intent or even psychedelics) expands his or her perception range.
5. Hostile Forces (Sri Aurobindo, the Mother, Rudolf Steiner)Sri Aurobindo was an Indian sage who founded Integral Yoga. He wrote about the Archons using the term hostile forces:
“It [the adverse force] is the Power that keeps up ignorance and darkness in the world —it can only be destroyed when mankind is no longer in love with ignorance and darkness. Each sadhak has to push it out of contact with his being. When it has gone from him, then there will be no longer any serious difficulties in his sadhana [practise] … The hostile Forces are Powers of Darkness who are in revolt against the Light and the Truth and want to keep this world under their rule in darkness and ignorance. Whenever anyone wants to reach the Truth, to realise the Divine, they stand in the way as much as possible … Sometimes they possess men in order to act through them, sometimes they take birth in a human body. When their use in the play is over, they will either change or disappear or no longer seek to intervene in the earth-play.”
The Mother, a woman closely associated with Sri Aurobindo and his work, talks about it here as she elucidates upon spirit possession or demonic possession:
“Question: When a being is possessed by a hostile force, what becomes of his psychic?
Mother: It depends on the degree of the possession. Usually it is something progressive. First there is an influence under which one comes … The second: the influence becomes permanent and there is one part of the being which deteriorates, which is constantly under this influence and expresses it. After this, the being which has cast this influence tries to enter that part. Then, usually, this produces a conflict, a kind of inner battle … if one doesn’t know how to resist and doesn’t succeed in shaking off the hold, then gradually the being that has seized upon a part of the person acts like an octopus and spreads its tentacles like that, slowly and everywhere; and finally it is a total possession. At the moment of the total possession, either the possessed person becomes completely unbalanced or he becomes a kind of monster …”
Rudolf Steiner is known for many things including his revolutionary ideas about education. He too was aware of the Archons:
“There are beings in the spiritual realms for whom anxiety and fear emanating from human beings offer welcome food. When humans have no anxiety and fear, then these creatures starve … If fear and anxiety radiates from people and they break out in panic, then these creatures find welcome nutrition and they become more and more powerful. These beings are hostile towards humanity. Everything that feeds on negative feelings, on anxiety, fear and superstition, despair or doubt, are in reality hostile forces in supersensible worlds, launching cruel attacks on human beings, while they are being fed. Therefore, it is above all necessary to begin with that the person who enters the spiritual world overcomes fear, feelings of helplessness, despair and anxiety. But these are exactly the feelings that belong to contemporary culture and materialism; because it estranges people from the spiritual world, it is especially suited to evoke hopelessness and fear of the unknown in people, thereby calling up the above mentioned hostile forces against them.”
6. Cosmic Predator / Mud Shadow (Shamanic a la Castaneda)Out of all the descriptions of hyper-dimensional entities thus far presented, the descriptions given by Carlos Castaneda in his 12th and final book, The Active Side of Infinity, are the most disturbing for me personally. I still remember reading it in my early 20s and being shocked to my core. Some part of me knew it was deeply true, and it rendered anything else I had learnt in my life up until that point as irrelevant and meaningless, because this was, without doubt, where the real battle lay. Castaneda relates what his mentor Don Juan taught him about the Archons, which he called the Cosmic Predator and the Mud Shadow:
“We have a predator that came from the depths of the cosmos and took over the rule of our lives. Human beings are its prisoners. The Predator is our lord and master. It has rendered us docile, helpless. If we want to protest, it suppresses our protest. If we want to act independently, it demands that we don’t do so … this was an energetic fact for the sorcerers of ancient Mexico … They took us over because we are food for them, and they squeeze us mercilessly because we are their sustenance. Just as we rear chickens in chicken coops, the predators rear us in human coops, humaneros. Therefore, their food is always available to them.”
“Sorcerers believe that the predators have given us our systems of belief, our ideas of good and evil, our social mores. They are the ones who set up our hopes and expectations and dreams of success or failure. They have given us covetousness, greed, and cowardice. It is the predators who make us complacent, routinary, and egomaniacal … In order to keep us obedient and meek and weak, the predators engaged themselves in a stupendous manoeuvre stupendous, of course, from the point of view of a fighting strategist. A horrendous manoeuvre from the point of view of those who suffer it. They gave us their mind! Do you hear me? The predators give us their mind, which becomes our mind. The predators’ mind is baroque, contradictory, morose, filled with the fear of being discovered any minute now … through the mind, which, after all, is their mind, the predators inject into the lives of human beings whatever is convenient for them. And they ensure, in this manner, a degree of security to act as a buffer against their fear.”
“The sorcerers of ancient Mexico were quite ill at ease with the idea of when [the predator] made its appearance on Earth. They reasoned that man must have been a complete being at one point, with stupendous insights, feats of awareness that are mythological legends nowadays. And then, everything seems to disappear, and we have now a sedated man. What I’m saying is that what we have against us is not a simple predator. It is very smart, and organized. It follows a methodical system to render us useless. Man, the magical being that he is destined to be, is no longer magical. He’s an average piece of meat.”
The Mud Shadow explains the seemingly irreconcilable difference between man the genius engineer and man the stupid idiot. The Cosmic Predator uses man as food, but in order to get the most loosh he can, he has to whip man up into a negative frenzy, much as farmers fatten their chickens and cattle before killing them. Don Juan specifically explains that every human has a glowing coat of awareness upon which the Predator feeds; it “milks” man by provoking emotional drama so as to generate flashes of awareness that it then eats. In other places in the Castaneda book series, Don Juan describes the Mud Shadow as a foreign installation, and even hints that certain shamans (sorcerers) have seen the creature/creatures.
7. The Evil Magician (Gurdjieff)The Russian mystic George Gurdjieff echoed the same idea of man being a dulled creature, robbed of his power. Gurdjieff believed most people lived their lives in a kind of hypnotic trance or waking sleep. He illustrated this in his story of the evil magician:
“There was an evil magician. He lived deep in the mountains and the forests, and he had thousands of sheep. But the problem was that the sheep were afraid of the magician because every day the sheep were seeing that one of them was being killed for his breakfast, another was being killed for his lunch. So they ran away from the magician’s ranch and it was a difficult job to find them in the vast forest. Being a magician, he used magic.
He hypnotized all the sheep and suggested to them first of all that they were immortal and that no harm was being done to them when they were skinned, that, on the contrary, it would be very good for them and even pleasant; secondly he suggested that the magician was a good master who loved his flock so much that he was ready to do anything in the world for them; and in the third place he suggested to them that if anything at all were going to happen to them it was not going to happen just then, at any rate not that day, and therefore they had no need to think about it.
He then told different sheep…to some, “You are a man, you need not be afraid. It is only the sheep who are going to be killed and eaten, not you. You are a man just like I am.” Some other sheep were told, “You are a lion – only sheep are afraid. They escape, they are cowards. You are a lion; you would prefer to die than to run away. You don’t belong to these sheep. So when they are killed it is not your problem. They are meant to be killed, but you are the most loved of my friends in this forest.” In this way, he told every sheep different stories, and from the second day, the sheep stopped running away from the house.
They still saw other sheep being killed, butchered, but it was not their concern. Somebody was a lion, somebody was a tiger, somebody was a man, somebody was a magician and so forth. Nobody was a sheep except the one who was being killed. This way, without keeping servants, he managed thousands of sheep. They would go into the forest for their food, for their water, and they would come back home, believing always one thing: “It is some sheep who is going to be killed, not you. You don’t belong to the sheep. You are a lion – respected, honored, a friend of the great magician.” The magician’s problems were solved and the sheep never ran away again.”
Gurdjieff believed humanity was not only like a flock of sheep, but also food for the moon, a concept which is well explained here:
“In the Fourth Way cosmology, creation proceeds outward and downward from a central point, called Sun Absolute. Creation passes through multiple levels, known as cosmoi or worlds and finally reaches the level corresponding to Earth. Due to special cosmic circumstance, organic life on Earth is necessary for receiving this energy of creation and transforming this into a form that is passed further along, to “feed” the “Moon”, which is said to be growing. All this is seen as a natural process where organic Earth life, including man, performs a function in a cosmic organism, a little like bacteria perform a function in the human digestive system. The fact of mankind collectively being required to produce certain ‘vibrations’ or ‘energies’ for serving various cosmic purposes is stressed throughout George Gurdjieff’s Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson. So called planetary influences cause mankind to fight wars and endure cataclysms so that a certain quota of energy release be fulfilled and the “Moon fed”.”
The ideas of a Predator eating our awareness (loosh) and food for the moon are all synonymous.
8. Wetiko (Native American Indian)In slight contrast to the view of the Archons as presented in the works of Castaneda and elsewhere, the Native American Indian traditions conceived hyper-dimensional entities as a mind virus, which they called wetiko. In an earlier article Mind Virus Wetiko: Collective Shadow of Humanity, I expanded upon the idea of wetiko and the shadow as explained by brilliant psychologist Carl Jung. The wetiko is based in the unconsciousness of the collective psyche:
“[Wetiko] is a master of distraction, making us look outside of ourselves and find issues and problems there, rather than looking within. We find people or groups outside of ourselves that match our projections of evil or darkness, then falsely believe the darkness is (only) outside of ourselves. This becomes a self-perpetuating feedback loop where we become unwitting propagators of wetiko.”
“Paul suggests that whether we look at wetiko as a cunning enemy out to destroy us, or a cheeky challenger out to prod and poke us into a fuller awareness, is a matter of perspective. Obviously, it is more empowering to view the created situations and outcomes of the mind virus as gifts rather than as curses or burdens, because the former view may spur us on to become better people, while the latter may lead us to anger and hate. We do, at least, have that much choice, but unless we are already a fully awakened or enlightened individual, we do not yet have the choice of whether to invite wetiko into our lives or not. It’s already here, and it’s not going away, unless every last speck of shadow is fully acknowledged.”
Form this perspective, the hyper-dimensional entities are part of a single mind virus which tries to trick us at every turn, causing us to see problems in others (psychological projection) when really the problems originate in ourselves.
Other References to Hyper-Dimensional EntitiesThe list above is not complete, for there are many other traditions which speak of the same basic idea. The concept of Maya (in Hinduism) and Samsara (in Buddhism) describe the state of being lost in the illusion of the shadow or being led around by temptation and seduction (due to the Archontic influence). According to Bernard Guenther, there are other references to hyper-dimensional entities, e.g. Lords of Destiny (Hermeticism) and the General Law (Esoteric Christianity).
How Do ETs Fit into All of This?At this point, the overwhelming evidence for the existence of aliens or ETs (Extraterrestrials) must be mentioned – especially for the Greys and Reptilians. It is unclear where these beings are the same thing as the Archons (who are not physical), or whether they are physical and therefore subject to psychic attack by the Archons just as mankind is, though I tend to believe the latter. There are many different whistleblowers who claim to have had physical interactions with Greys and Reptilians (you can read some of them here and here) including Phil Schneider, Niara Isley, Nadira Duran, Barbara Lamb and many others. There is also the idea put forth by many such as Whitley Strieber that hostile ETs (engaged in producing an alien-human hybrid race through genetic engineering) cannot physically experience Earth in their own bodies, so they appear to be trying to experience it through others. This idea suggests there is something different, non-corporeal or ethereal about these ETs, just as there undoubtedly is with the Archons. They can’t quite cross dimensions. However, more research needs to be done in this area.
One final note on this aspect of the topic: a common theme among stories about hyper-dimensional entities and Reptilians is that there is some kind of channel which is opened (especially during ritual). This channel is a 2-way street. The possessing force takes over the vessel’s thoughts, words and actions to some degree, while the possessed gets to used borrowed energy and feels a dark rush or adrenaline high. The main point of this demonic possession is so that the hyper-dimensional entity can cross over dimensions more easily into this world. This is very important to remember when looking at the sick sexual and sacrificial Satanic rituals performed by the elite at places like Bohemian Grove. David Icke’s take on it is this: while Archons can come in to our reality, it takes so much energy for them to remain in our frequency band that they can’t stay very long. So, they have possessed the elite New World Order (NWO) families who are essentially “Archon Families” who channel them and bring about their agenda on Earth. The British Royal Family, psychopathic CEOs and pedophilic leaders are expressions of the Archon mentality on Earth.
Beware the Fake LightThere is much evidence that it is the Archons who are behind the “fake light” of the New Age movement, the possible light trap at the point of death and the ubiquitous divide-and-rule strategy we see everywhere in the push towards a NWO. This topic is too big to go into here, however I will briefly quote Cameron Day:
“In order to capture and control the widest possible spectrum of souls, the corrupt demiurge split its agents into two seemingly opposing teams: Dark vs (false) Light … What matters most to the demiurge is that we worship it or one of its agents, regardless if they are on the light team or the dark team. The corrupt demiurge is an entropic system of artificially-induced separation consciousness that is slowly dying, and it depends on harvesting the energy from the souls incarnated within its system in order to preserve its existence.”
Final ThoughtsEven though there is a lot of evidence for the existence of Archons, we have to consider the possibility that we may be anthropomorphizing them. Perhaps they are actual creatures, or perhaps they are symbolic representations of our our shadows, our wounds and our fears. Either way, when those tempting, seductive and tormenting thoughts arrive in your head – as happens to every human on the planet – you have a very real battle in front of you and inside of you. That much we can say for sure. I will end this series by suggesting the following ways you can confront and overcome the hyper-dimensional entities, so that you are no longer their prisoner, although this work may take an entire lifetime:
– Name the Demon: once you take responsibility or own a part of your shadow or unconscious behavior, it loses its grip on you. This is especially powerful when done semi-publicly in front of a safe group of people you trust.
– Integrate, Don’t Obliterate: from a spiritual and psychological perspective, overcoming the shadow is all about integration, not obliteration. You can’t destroy the “dark side” since it will be always be there as part of the whole in contrast to love, so that we can know what love truly is. The spiritual path is about healing whatever split we hold within by integrating the disassociated parts of ourselves into a fully aware whole.
– Be the Observer / Watcher: develop a practice of watching the voices inside of your head, so that you don’t identify with them. The only way they can actually have power over you is by tricking you into identifying with a certain metal position.
– Do Your Inner Work: the battle is within. Focus on what’s inside of you. It’s hard to save the world or effectively help others if you haunted by past wounds that you haven’t healed.
– Worry about your own Shadow, not Others’: we all know it’s far easier to see the shadow in others than ourselves, but each person can only heal themselves.
– Revoke all Agreements/Contracts with any Negative Hyper-Dimensional Entities: with power, certainty and authority, state that you are cancelling and revoking any and all agreements with any hyper-dimensional entities you believe have a hold over you.
– Sharpen your Intuition and Discernment: the more you connect with your intuition (gut-heart) and not your reason (mind), the more you will know rather than try to figure out. Your intuition will help you discern which voice is real and which voices are tricking you. It will also help you discern truth from falsehood as a reader and researcher. The truth is never just handed to you on a golden platter. You have to struggle and sweat for it.
– Find the Place of Invulnerability and Power Inside of You: as Paul Levy says, “the only way to defeat wetiko is to find the place inside of yourself which is invulnerable to wetiko.” Learn to laugh at the voices of hopelessness, despair and temptation. They are not true, unless you believe them.
To all – good luck in your battle of confronting your inner demons! And as Plato said – be kind, for everyone is fighting this battle.
The Illuminati: Renegades of the Mystery Schools
The word “Illuminati” has become a catch-all term for the defacto Rulers of Planet Earth. Definition is crucial because the words “Conspiracy” and “Illuminati” have themselves become code-words for the occult (hidden) machinations of the Powers That Be. With the advent of the internet and its rough cut of “news” and disinformation, what was once considered esoteric knowledge has been revealed for all to see. Even the cowans – a derogatory Masonic term for non-Masons – and the goys – a derogatory Yiddish term for non-Jews – are learning about the Illuminati black magic hoodoo that permeates the planetary matrix.
Illuminati originally meant “the enlightened ones” in Latin, and it refers to those who control the political, economic and social infrastructures of the planet. By their reasoning, they believe they are the (self) designated rulers of Planet Earth.
Also called “Olympians” and “Moriah Conquering Wind,” the Illuminati are a “network” of interconnected “bloodlines” who call themselves “The Family” or “The Circle.” Intergenerational satanism, or more accurately Luciferianism, is their primary Belief Structure (That’s BS to you, pardner).
Also don’t forget their fatal flaw… The Illuminati consider themselves a tribe apart – Bande à part – a proud super-race who trace their genealogical origin back to the biblical Nimrod.
To add to the confusion, people sometimes refer to the Illuminati as the Bavarian secret society which infiltrated Freemasonry – even as the term “Illuminatus” is an actual title in Freemasonry.
Current understanding of the Illuminati comes from first-hand knowledge of mind control survivors like Arizona Wilder, Cathy O’Brien, author of Trance Formation of America, Brice Taylor, author of Thanks for the Memories, Kathleen Sullivan, author of MK, and Annie McKenna, author of Paperclip Dolls.
Their accounts describe a parallel Illuminati “culture” whose primary goal is to keep the populace “productive” and under control, as their corporate motto promises to deliver, “Ordo ab Chao” (Order Out of Chaos).
This parasitic Illuminati culture also uses mind control programming to keep its own members of the Family, as well as the rest of society, locked in a grid of compliance. (See “Mind Control Slavery and the New World Order”, www.conspiracyplanet.com/channel.cfm?channelid=36&contentid=8774)
Various authors have further introduced errors in their “exposés” of the Illuminati by interpreting history with a bias that reflects their own political and religious indoctrination.
For example, the works of Fritz Springmeier and Cisco Wheeler, while informative about the Illuminati’s sociopathic “traditions” (no es mi costumbre) and psychopathic behaviour, which includes torture, human sacrifice and mind control, nevertheless belie a Christian programming which adds to the chaos and confusion of trying to untangle history from disinformation.
Likewise even as the writings of John Coleman, author of The Committee of 300 and Eustace Mullins, author of The World Order, describe various Illuminati organisations which exercise political and religious control in pursuit of their oft-stated goal of establishing a New World Order (One World Government), their asides reveal a rigid Christian fundamentalist mindset which undermines their credibility.
The greatest confusion, however, seems to lie in the connection between the Illuminati and the Gnostics. For example, authors like Nesta Webster in her book on Secret Societies claims the Illuminati can be traced back to the Gnostics. In other words, she frames her argument that Illuminati and the Gnostics are “bad” because they appear to be antithetical to Christianity.
This conflict then refers to the perennial battle between the Gnostics, representing the Mystery Schools, and the Roman Catholic Church which fought fiercely against self-knowledge, mysticism and other metaphysical concepts, inimical to the mind control confabulations of the Vatican.
Today this animosity is evident in the Belief Systems (BS) of Christian evangelicals, among others, who see all secret societies, Gnostics, New Agers, and the like as devil worshippers and ignorant (or conscious) agents of the Illuminati.
Not so… The Mystery Schools were pre-Christian mystical communities that were in effect educational centres with libraries and workshops amid a vibrant cultural life.
This just may be the scene of the crime, so to speak, and the origin of the current metaphysical confusion.
Was this where the great ideological schism, or the Dividing of the Way, began?
Gnostics vs. IlluminatiComparative mythologist John Lamb Lash, the world’s foremost authority on Gnosticism and esoteric traditions, is the author of the indispensable groundbreaking book Not In His Image: Gnostic Vision, Sacred Ecology and the Future of Belief.
According to Lash, Mystery School adepts (so-called Gnostics) were originally members of the Magian order of shaman-initiates whose purpose was to guide humanity as teacher-mystics in pursuit of spiritual/ human evolution.
The controversy began when certain initiates of the Mystery Schools began to abuse their mystical knowledge and redirect it into behavioural manipulation, psychological programming and mind control technology. In essence, the Illuminati gave up their role as teachers to become social engineers and advisors to the Ruling Class. This coincided with the rise of the patriarchal Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Islam and Christianity, which also required techniques of mind control to keep their followers (“believers”) in line.
“Around 4000 BCE with the rise of urban civilisation in the Near East, some members of the Magian order chose to apply certain secrets of initiation to statecraft and social engineering,” writes Lash, describing the spiritual devolution of the Kali Yuga. “They became the advisors to the first theocrats of the patriarchal nation-states, but in fact the advisors were running the show.”
“Their subjects were systematically programmed to believe they were descended from the gods,” continues Lash. “The Illuminati inaugurated elaborate rites of empowerment, or kingship rituals. These rituals were in fact methods of mind control exercised on the general populace through the collective symbology and mystique of royal authority.”
Civilisation – the Civil Lie in Action – needed an iron fist in a velvet glove from the beginning, and the Illuminati were there to ensure compliance. “Kingship rituals were distinct from the rites of initiation that led to instruction by the Light and consecration to the Great Goddess,” writes Lash. “Their purpose was not education and enlightenment but social management.”
The control freak tendencies of the Illuminati are evident everywhere now, as their failure in managing the world financial system is rushing the planet headlong into economic collapse.
“Gnostics refrained from assuming any role in politics because their intention was not to change society, but to produce skilled, well-balanced, enlightened individuals who would create a society good enough that it did not need to be run by external management,” Lash continues. “The intention of the dissident Magians to run society by covert controls was based on their assumption that human beings are not innately good enough, or gifted enough, to create a humane world.”
Of course Lash is being too “liberal” in labelling the Illuminati as “dissident” since their spiritual betrayal in the Mystery School was more of a bitch slap to Gaia, than the red flag of a covert rebellion.
“The difference in views of human potential was the main force that precipitated the division of the Magians,” writes Lash, meaning that the judgmental arrogance of the Illuminati who believed they were indispensable, even as they think they’re nothing less than “God’s gift to mankind.”
“It’s simple enough to see that this mind set would develop the hierarchal structures in society today,” Lash continues.
True enough. The so-called Global Elite keep the planet under control utilising Illuminati Gofers known as politicians, military personnel, police officers, and religious leaders, whose function is to be the shepherds of society – guarding the sheep… until they’re ready for slaughter in their endless wars and intertribal rivalries.
People who behave as sheep, or so-called “sheople,” are always the ones who suffer the most because of their programming. Meanwhile the Illuminati Gofers pretend that this is the way it’s supposed to be. This long-standing ideological disagreement in the Mystery Schools has, it appears, resulted in the gross inequities of life on Planet Earth.
“The Illuminati program was (and still is) essential to patriarchy and its cover, perpetrator religion,” writes Lash, describing the global conspiracy which has conquered the world.
“While it cannot be exactly said that the deviant adepts known as Illuminati created patriarchy, they certainly controlled it,” continues Lash. “And still do. The abuse of initiatory knowledge to induce schizophrenic states (‘entrainment’), manipulate multiple personalities in the same person (‘platforming’), and command behaviour through posthypnotic suggestion (The Manchurian Candidate technique) continues to this day, with truly evil consequences for the entire world.”
Attempting to disentangle the erroneous idea that Gnostics and Illuminati refer to the same characters, Lash writes: “If we accept that the Mysteries were schools for Gaian co-evolution dedicated to the Goddess Sophia, they could not have been run by the Illuminati, as some contemporary writers (who believe they are exposing the Illuminati) have supposed. Everything the Gnostics did in the schools was intended to counterbalance and correct the machinations of the deviant adepts.”
Right intent once again becomes critical and the radical difference in ideology between the Gnostics and the Illuminati become self-evident.
“Initiation involved melting ego boundaries in preparation for deep rapport with nature, not lowering the ego consciousness, so that the subject could be behaviourally programmed using the power of suggestion, imprinting and other psychodramatic methods. These behavioural modification tools of the Illuminati were strictly forbidden in the Mysteries overseen by the Gnostics.”
The metaphysical perverts known as the Illuminati have structured today’s society to reflect the manipulation of humankind through religious belief systems, political affiliations as well as the non-stop onslaught of media programming known as “news” and “entertainment.”
The Defeat of the IlluminatiAs renegades from the Mystery Schools who betrayed the Mysteries and subverted Gnosis (“Knowledge”), the Illuminati plan to divide, conquer and rule the world has worked quite well because people are easily programmed into belief systems contrary to their own welfare.
As Lash notes, “Skilled in theology and dialectical argument, the Gnostics were able to refute fanatical beliefs, but unable to protect themselves against the violence driven by those beliefs.”
In other words Judeo-Christian Annihilation & Apocalyptic Theology sponsored by the Illuminati was responsible for the destruction of the Mystery Schools and the murder of the Gnostics, who were no match for those who perceived them as a threat to their planetary dominion.
“Not only were the gnostokoi like [the female philosophy teacher] Hypatia [who was murdered by the Church] apolitical, they deliberately refrained from involvement in politics in order to dissociate themselves from the other type of initiates, the Illuminati who had been enmeshed in patriarchal and theocratic power games from their outset,” Lash concludes.
The Illuminati may be considered to be apostate Gnostics who abandoned their role of enlightening humankind in order to reap the benefits and entitlements of the Ruling Class.
Now as before the Illuminati continue to move towards their goal – a feverish dream of world domination culminating in the so-called New World Order (One World Government), which simply means Global Techno-Feudalism.
This has always been Metaphysical Warfare. And humankind’s choice is once again – Freedom or Slavery. Maybe the “Know-It-Alls” – a derogatory term used by the Church against the Gnostics – might be able to help them out…

The Fatal Secret Jesus took to Jerusalem
In the second century the Greek philosopher, Celsus, wrote an invaluable book about Christianity based on a variety of older, now lost, sources. A Christian writer, Origen, (fl. 247 AD) wrote a reply to Celsus’ book, quoting from it extensively. Of special interest is the revealing statement that poverty forced Jesus to travel to Egypt where the son of a carpenter might find work. It was there that he learned: “…certain arts for which the Egyptians are famous. Afterwards, returning from thence, he thought so highly of himself, on account of the possession of these arts, as to proclaim himself to be a God.” In the same passage Celsus provides an early description of the Egyptians’ gift for the art of puppetry. “These magicians also represent animals as moving, which are not in reality animals, but merely appear to the imagination to be such.”
Like the Egyptian-trained magicians, Jesus became famous for his ability to cast out demons and cure the mentally ill. It was his skill wielding the power of suggestion that enabled him to perform these impressive exorcisms; a hypnotic skill most likely imparted by his Egyptian mentors. (Notably, Jesus was unable to perform such miracles in his hometown where the people were not in awe of his reputation.
Jesus would be aware that the ancient Egyptian art of puppetry had long been used for political ends. Together, hypnotism and puppetry were important keys to unlocking a secret story which the priests and scribes of Jerusalem wished to conceal.
Jesus timed his entry into Jerusalem to coincide with the Passover; the sacred day set aside by the Jews to commemorate their history-changing flight from Egypt led by Moses. As he rode into town the people, keen to believe the Messiah had finally arrived, tossed palm leafs across the road before Jesus. The tumultuous gathering soon drew the attention of the “chief priests and scribes” who were not amused by this display of adulation.
At the time that Jesus entered Jerusalem to such acclaim Rome controlled the known world. Normally, they found it pragmatic to use local princes or kings as proxies to rule on their behalf. But on that fateful day the Roman Procurator, Pontius Pilate, (ruled 26-36 AD) was in charge. Pilate was one of three key characters who figure in the plot to kill Jesus. The others were Joseph Caiaphas, the Levite high priest of Jerusalem and Herod Antipas, the ruler of Galilee. Jesus called him “that fox.” Herod Antipas (20 BC to 39 AD) was considered only a ‘half Jew’ because his ancestors were from Edom, rather than Israel. Herod’s father (Herod the Great) had been responsible for the fabulous construction of the Temple in Jerusalem; the outer buildings of which were still being built when Jesus arrived.
We suggest that Jesus was specifically calling out Joseph Caiaphas and Herod Antipas as hypocrites because they “… build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepuchres of the righteous, and say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.”
The tomb he was confronting them about was the Jerusalem Temple which had been built to house the Ark of the Covenant, a holy relic constructed by Moses. Jesus’ words suggest that it was the blood of the prophet Moses which dripped from the ancestors of Caiaphas and Antipas. Joseph Caiaphas was descended from Israel’s third son, Levi. Herod Antipas’s ancestors came from Edom, where Reuel, Moses’s father-in-law, was born. In KILLING MOSES, we put forward the case that Moses had been murdered by Reuel and Levi at the Mountain of God. Reuel, also an Egyptian-trained magician, used hypnotism and puppetry to manipulate the children of Israel to secure the power he’d sought his entire adult life. Levi and his descendants, the Levite scribes, covered-up the homicide by their careful, and relentless, editing of the early parts of Bible.
Jesus’ unique education licensed him to identify significant evidence of Egyptian magic within the officially sanctioned story of Moses. Stories like the suspicious and sudden revival of Moses, aided by Hur and Aaron supporting his magical staff, as the battle with the Amalekites raged below.
The probability of this impressive feat being an illusion perpetuated by the use of puppetry would have not been overlooked by Jesus.’ He would have been familiar with the critical role played by masks amongst Egyptian magicians, leading him to suspect that the masked Moses who returned to the tribe was not the same man who climbed the mountain of God to receive the Ten Commandments. His less sophisticated tribe believed these stories to be true accounts of miracles. But a man trained in the arts of magic would be more discerning. He only needed to pull one or two threads from the fictional garment that covered the Levite story of Moses before the entire legend unravelled. He had identified the flaws in that carefully woven fabric of lies.
Herod Antipas and Joseph Caiaphas couldn’t afford to let Jesus expose the dark secret of their ancestors. At the very least they would be deposed if the people believed their ancestors had murdered Moses. But it was too dangerous to respond directly to the explosive accusations and bring attention to the very thing they were trying to hide. It was even more dangerous to let the rabble-rouser continue to ignite dissent. It was decided. Jesus must be arrested. The trial would be held in secret.
Looking for a reason to justify execution Joseph Caiaphas demanded that Jesus answer to whether or not he was the Son of God? When Jesus confirmed his claim Caiaphas shocked his peers by seizing his clothes and tearing them from his body. Since Moses’ time, it had been strictly forbidden for a high priest to “rent his clothes.” Short of setting himself on fire Caiaphas could not have emphasized more the magnitude of the crime Jesus was committing by claiming to be the Son of God. The High Levite Priest of Jerusalem shouted, “…now ye have heard his blasphemy. What think ye?” It was a rhetorical question. The priests clamoured for a sentence of capital punishment. Joseph Caiaphas had his way. Jesus would be silenced; ostensibly because of blasphemy.
Jesus’ legend was built on the foundation created by Moses. To be crucified during Passover linked him forever with the immortal liberator of the Jews. We suggest that Jesus blamed the Edomites and Levites for the death of Moses. He knew exactly which buttons to push to incite them to overreact to his taunts and accusations. Even knowing the torturous fate that awaited him he was willing to assume the role of the sacrificial son whose slow death could redeem the murder of the quintessential father figure, Moses.

The Powerful Use of Esoteric Knowledge While Keeping It Hidden From Humanity
You should be active in your spiritual life.
You’re never going to discover why you exist, and what the purpose of your life is, if you don’t do something about it. Do you want to live your life superficially, or do you want to have a genuinely spiritual life?
Reading, discussing, watching videos and belonging to groups might be helpful to begin with, but ultimately it’s not going to get you there. If you want to have a rewarding spiritual life you’re going to have to EXPERIENCE.
It doesn’t matter what you think about consciousness, higher truths or different dimensions, it’s what you experience and what you are that counts.
Planes of existence beyond this world exist, there are higher beings, heavens and demons, and hell is real; I’ve been there. I’ve seen realities that can’t even be imagined or dreamed about.
Wake up and see for yourself what’s really going on. Be more conscious in your life and learn from the dimensions beyond this. But watch out, because you’re ingrained in a passivity that will stop you, and you don’t even realize it.
That passivity is ingrained into the subconscious in all of us by society, and by the feelings and emotions that are part of nature’s program, which we were born with.This will drag your inner state down when you try to elevate it to spiritual states, it will make you search for pleasure and satisfy animal drives, it will keep your life stuck in this plane of existence, locked on a mechanical track with few choices, and you won’t even know it’s there.
Esoteric Knowledge is Used by the Few and Denied to the ManyDancer at a pop concert with the all-seeing eye within a triangle symbol on the back of their shirt and a hand sign symbolizing three sixes.
The passivity has developed over time to the extent that the human race has effectively become domesticated and in many cases resemble passive sheep. Unfortunately, pleasure is a powerful driving force, and when people live for pleasure many compromises have to be made. Not the least is a reluctance to attend to the things that really matter. Corruption sets into society, greed becomes a virtue, the environment is frivolously destroyed, there are huge differences in the distribution of wealth, etc.
People have less inclination towards serious issues and are more willing for others to do things for them. Other people and institutions then make many of their decisions for them. With the result that a huge number of people are only able to understand simple slogans, and are thus able to be manipulated by those in power. And, in terms of spirituality, the tendency is to follow the herd and accept what they have been brought up with or what others do without any deep questioning. But spirituality is far too important a subject to leave up to someone else, or to have as a blind belief. Its an individuals fate beyond this life that’s at stake and that’s a very high stake not to take a serious interest in.
If you look for knowledge far enough you’ll discover a maze of ideas, but are likely to come across some information on out-of-body experiences and symbols. The two are related since the language of the astral plane is in symbols. By learning to have out-of-body experiences, you’ll be able to learn much more of what life and the universe is about. But you’ll also start noticing that symbols from the astral plane are everywhere in society.
They are in movies, in the logo’s of corporations, in ancient art, in music videos, public buildings, religions, they’re all over the place. So why isn’t everyone familiar with them? Why is it that mostly people and institutions at the elevated end of society seem to use these symbols?
Suppressing Higher KnowledgeThe all-seeing eye within a triangle as used in the emblem for an intelligence agency.
The answer is that it’s suppressed knowledge, it’s powerful and enabling. Those in power want to restrict it’s use and don’t want it falling into the hands of the majority. The establishment wants to have control over it. Many powerful institutions throughout history have not wanted people to have it. That’s been the basis of persecution of many people in the past. It was part of the reasons behind the inquisition, the witch hunts, the brutal suppression of early Christian knowledge by the church, and the suppression of many individuals and groups through the history of the world. Those behind religions don’t want anything new to arise to challenge their religion. Society wants conformity, and profound spiritual knowledge doesn’t conform, it’s usually developed by small numbers of people who don’t fit in.
The result is that esoteric knowledge basically has been wiped out of societies repeatedly, and yet there are groups at the higher levels of society who obviously have some kind of knowledge of esoteric symbols and ritual and a wider esoteric knowledge too. But you’ll often find this knowledge is inverted, it’s of darkness and is being used as a vehicle for power and evil.
Dark symbols, landscapes and themes used in the music industry.
For most people though it’s taboo to even talk about higher spiritual knowledge in many places, if you were to try talking freely even about a simple subject such as astral projection you might get a lot of negative responses.
Higher spiritual knowledge is demonized in many ways in society and has been for a very long time. And yet its darker aspects are so common in the music industry and Hollywood, most people take it as fiction, but not all of it is, and I believe there are agendas behind its use in the entertainment industry, some working to affect people at a subliminal level. And being used to direct peoples ideas and attitudes in ways the media, and influences behind the media want them to go. This gives an extraordinary level of control over people and that’s not healthy.
Not All Secret Societies are ‘Bad’There have been many types of secret esoteric societies, some were created for sinister purposes, some out of religions to further their agenda. Some were created with good intentions, and some today have well meaning people in them doing good.
Not everything esoteric or occult is from the dark side, fundamentalist Christians often label everything esoteric as Satanic, but it’s not, some of it is actually a remnant of white ancient knowledge. Some societies began as fully fledged esoteric orders, but became watered down with time, lacking people with sufficient inner awakening to participate in them.
Many of these became infiltrated by dark forces as people motivated by greed and power took control of them. Their original good intentions hijacked to fulfill sinister purposes.
It is necessary to have levels of secrecy in many areas of life, in some areas of government for example (assuming the government is working for the benefit of its citizens). Esoteric societies used secrecy out of necessity for their own protection. Have a look at a video of Gurdjieffs ‘Meetings with Remarkable Men’, look at the levels of secrecy in it, towards the end there’s a secret esoteric school. They needed that secrecy to protect themselves from people who would have destroyed their school. Not everything secret is bad, esoteric knowledge has been protected by hermetic silence.
You can’t have something like this today, people would ruin it. Pearls are not given to swine, as Jesus said, or they will trample them underfoot.
The Use of the Word Cult to Stop People Forming Groups for Higher Spiritual KnowledgeThe cult word today is being used as an instrument of suppression and it restricts your freedom. If you take an interest in something spiritual, say astral projection, and you get together with a group of interested people, and they elect you to be the head in some way, you’ll immediately be classified as a cult leader and your group as a cult. And if someone attends and they don’t like you they can lie about you in public and be supported by a huge number of institutions, religions, groups of abusive anti-cult witch hunters, atheists, the media and society in general, and if you look for justice you’ll find it’s priced beyond the reach of ordinary people. How are you going to withstand that? Your life will be ruined.
The media fuels the witch hunt, the sheep in society follow, and the bullies attack. Society is not free. People with agendas control the media, and this is rotten. Heretic, blasphemer, witch, pagan, cult, these are all bigoted words meant to shut people out of society and destroy them. There are always lawbreakers in every aspect of society including spiritual groups, but they are the minority and there are laws to deal with them. But the actions of a few become the brush to tar the many with.

What does the word ‘cult’ make you feel? Bad? That’s part of your programming. Even Jesus would be called a cult leader if he were alive today; here is an article about it. Those with agendas pulling the strings behind the scenes don’t want you to study esoteric knowledge, they don’t want you to form groups around it. They don’t want challenges, at a deeper level, the forces of darkness don’t want the forces of light to emerge to counter them.
They don’t want you to become empowered by consciousness and wisdom. Behind the scenes they manipulate the media to make you believe these things are wrong, but they are not. You have a right to gather with others to stand together and face this ignorance, to fight for truth and to know the secrets of esoteric knowledge. You should empower yourself with truth and become active for the good of society. Statistically the most persecuted religious minority in the western world today are not Jews or Muslims, they are modern Pagans. Society is not free.
Spirituality has been CommercializedUpside down pentagram used in the emblem of a police force. A pentagram the right way up is a symbol of light (signifying a person ascending to heaven). Forces of darkness use this symbol by inverting it and thus attracting the powers of darkness.
While some spirituality is not allowed one type is encouraged, that is commercial spirituality. The alternative health and lifestyle industry in the US in 2006 was worth $300 billion dollars. That’s where your interest is being funneled. True spiritual knowledge is given for free, you’re being deceived.
The figures of commercial spirituality are not spiritual teachers they are celebrities, their messages are simplified and watered down to the extent they are misleading. They often fish other peoples ideas and present that work as their own, they are talented writers and speakers, but they are businessmen and women, supported by a highly sophisticated industry. If you have a spiritual message to share, but you’re not up to making money for these corporations, you’ll be ignored.
The Source of the Suppression of Knowledge in SocietyReligion, lots of different interests, corporations, individuals and groups combine and organize to create the world as they want it and work behind the scenes. I’ve been attacked by some of them. It’s been going on for a long time in society.
It’s my experience that there are people of a religious persuasion who are able to go into the astral plane, they have awakened psychic faculties for evil, and they go into the abyss where they get their knowledge, they access the intelligence of evil. This is the source behind the evil that is manipulating so much of the world today.
This spreads like the roots of a tree from secret mystical societies through the upper scales of power and influence in society, until it’s influence permeates the lives of the unsuspecting majority.
Darkness has its hierarchical structure, which goes through society, to a small number of initiates of darkness, then through the hierarchy of evil out-of-the body to demons and the forces of darkness. A hierarchy of light also exists, but THE HIERARCHY OF LIGHT IS BROKEN, it has been smashed and does not reach society.
One of the results of this is that the different ventures of truth and good in the world have little or no understanding of the esoteric principles of life, lacking that common understanding they are split, weakened, dissipated and often become infiltrated by dark forces. Darkness has virtually won the war for the human race.
A Global Awakening is Not Happening in Consciousness
A pop star mimics a character from the old film Metropolis in which a woman was created to destroy men through sexual desire using entertainment. Notice the upside down pentagram – used to summon the forces of evil. The pop star then proceeds to strip out of the robot suit and dance scantily clothed before millions of people.
A lot of people today talk of there being a global awakening, but where is the awakening of consciousness? People are more asleep now than ever, there are no more societies based around esoteric knowledge like there were in ancient times, nor at this rate is there any chance of there ever being any. An awakening of information about important things in the three dimensional world, though good, is not an awakening of consciousness. It may be that people are becoming more conscious of several important issues, but people are not more awake in consciousness, they are more asleep and are blind to the wider reality of cosmic existence.
And don’t be fooled by those studying non-physical phenomena such as consciousness and the astral plane, who use scientific methods to draw theories about what they’ve never experienced. Or who say that non-physical phenomena are constructed by the mind alone. The result of this will be to keep you from searching for higher knowledge while out-of-the body, while in life being immersed in inaccurate theories.
It’s great that people search for truth in society, each human being has a responsibility to work for the forces of light in the struggle against darkness, but becoming initiates is even better. A small number of initiates of light in the world could create a powerful force for good.
You Need the Astral Plane to Understand Secret Symbols and Ancient KnowledgePop star covered in upside down crucifixes and doing a symbolic gesture in covering their eye – creating the all-seeing eye.
Most of the symbols in use today have their origins in the symbols of the distant past. It’s unfortunate that so many people have taken wrong direction when it comes to understanding ancient knowledge, but it’s not surprising considering the suppression that has been going on for so long. When studying ancient cultures people draw all kinds of theories about their symbols, but they don’t understand that they are looking at the symbolic universal language of the astral plane, probably because they have seldom if ever been there. Some interpret them as tales of evil reptilians and codes of evil societies, but without understanding that without esoteric knowledge, you can’t interpret the more profound meanings in the symbols of ancient civilizations. Nor can you get esoteric knowledge without finding it beyond this three-dimensional world. And no one can get profound esoteric knowledge without becoming an initiate.
Esoteric symbols are the language of the astral plane, and that is their origin, just as it is the location of ghosts, demons, angels, divine beings and much of the paranormal. Ancient peoples used the astral plane for knowledge and brought back it’s symbolism for use in their teachings and temples.
Evil people become initiates of darkness and thereby get access to knowledge of evil. Initiates of light get access to knowledge of light. Ordinary people get ordinary knowledge = dull.
There are ascending serpents (light) and descending ones (darkness), get knowledge and don’t fall into the trap of drawing conclusions from ideas that have no esoteric experience behind them. It’s easy to do that, but you’ll just stay blind to higher truth, even if you fight for truth on a physical level. Fight for truth on all levels and empower yourself with white esoteric knowledge.
The Sleeping Majority Whose Destiny is Out of Their HandsThe consumer society with its indulgence in the lifestyle of greed has its price, in the suffering and destruction that follows to people, animals and the environment. But it has a higher more subtle cost in enslavement to the many corrupt structures and people that exist in society. And an even greater enslavement which is of the dumbed down sheep like existence of a person whose consciousness is asleep, who drifts through life in a semi-comatose state, oblivious to the wider universe around them, with a Santa Claus like view of cosmic reality, which they call religion.
The average person is a person who doesn’t know why they exist, nor what the purpose of their life is, it’s a person who dies and whose destiny is out of their hands. Who moves on a circuit of lives from one to another until the last life is over, then submerges into the abyss (look up hellish near-death experiences if you want to get some idea about this). The majority of people don’t want to wake up and don’t want others to wake up.
Ignoring esoteric knowledge has a cost, a very high one. It’s much more difficult to discover and even talk about higher universal truths than it is to explore the truth behind events that happen in society. But it’s necessary to find them if you want true knowledge.
Know the Truth and the Truth Will Set You Free (Jesus)If you don’t do enough to discover higher truths, you won’t get them, the best you can do is to get glimpses here and there, and try to be content with that. Why not be one of the few that wants to discover more about what’s going on, and be completely free in mind and consciousness?
The problem is in making the sacrifices to do it, facing opposition from the many forms of the forces of darkness, and enduring the hardships of the way. The hardships are the testing ground of life; we’re all in creation’s testing ground, and that’s why we’re here. Darkness enables us to see form, and opposition is necessary for awakening. And yet the difficulties of life are a major reason there are very few people actually trying to self-realize.
Study yourself, get knowledge from outside the physical world, become an initiate of light and go through an esoteric process of change. Be aware of what traps you, be strong and set yourself free.
The world destroyed a man, but the man became a serpent and lay hidden in the womb of the cosmic mother. But darkness beware, because the serpent rises to one day reach the light and be devoured by the eagle. And then the feathered serpent can fly.
