I woke up at around 1:00 am earlier
this morning because I was looking at some Star Wars spoilers, and couldn’t go
to sleep after. That said, I decide to try remote viewing deeply for the first
time. Before I start, I used a selenite wand to raise my vibrations, and
plugged in my headphones to listen to forest sounds.
The main purpose of this activity
was for me to communicate with my guides (which is why I had the selenite), and
ask them questions. While I didn’t get any direct answers, I did feel their
presence very close to me. My vibrations rose intensely, and I almost feel like
I might astral project—but due to fear, I didn’t (that’s the common story with
me lols :,D)
And I wondered if my guides wanted
that to happen on purpose—for me to meet them on the astral plane. I don’t know
how to describe it, but it felt as if someone was guiding me to do it, but of
course I chickened out. Even before this, I’ve had the inkling that I’d have to
project to truly meet them, so this was really nothing too new.
I envisioned my little “space”. It’s
a forest clearing with trees around me—tall
trees and a starry sky above, and it matched with the sounds I was listening
Before I even really began, I cleared
my chakras with affirmations this time—something I’ve only recently done—and put
a protective shield around myself. Also prayed to St. Michael for protection,
and then I asked for my guides to come lay beside me, and felt them(one by
name, and others to just show if they existed).
Either way my guides want me to
astral project I feel, because that’s how I can meet them. so I suppose that’s
my next goal, to get over that fear.
Later on I can do a guide of exactly
what I did, as well as the affirmations and techniques I used to cleanse my
chakras and shield!
Just randomly charge shit. Take that energy, and reprogram it for other purposes. Remove that energy from one object and put it into another. Take it out and put it back in yourself. Take it and throw it away.
Even just getting into the habit of grounding regularly can be a good way to practice energy work. Draw in “good,” clean energy; release “bad,” “negative” energy. As you do that, you get used to different feels of energy, drawing it onto yourself (which is always useful in magic), and sending it out again.
How is it possible to visit instantly any location in the universe in the present, past or probable future? What happens to space/time?
The Non-Locality Principle of quantum physics was experimentally proven in 1982 by Alain Aspect and his research team at the University of Paris’ Institute of Theoretical and Applied Optics in France.
This principle states that time and space does not really exist at the level and particles. Moreover, they proved the violation of the inequality of John Bell and finally solved the Einstein/Poldowsky/Rosen paradox.
This means that Einstein had been completely wrong in refuting the quantum mechanics Non-Locality Principle. This could have happened quite possibly because he had problems conceptualizing its extraordinary implications upon our so-called material world and the nature of reality.
In other words, this means that Einstein was mistaken in his widely accepted assumption that speeds faster than Light were impossible and that space and time did not operate at the quantum level (particle level).
By extension, we can say that it seems that our phenomenal world is, in reality, supported by an indivisible reality, non-local(at that level space does not exist), and non-subject to the restrictions of time (time does not seem to have any meaning at that level).
This is equivalent to saying that no element, whether alive or inanimate, in this universe is separate from another.
And at the level of individual perceptions of reality, this certainly seems to be so! This correlates strongly with the Holographic Model of the Universe that the physicist David Bohm postulated as an explanation for the paradoxes that quantum physics raises.
David Bohm is, until today, considered to be one of the greatest theoretical quantum physicists. He was one of the Einstein’s preferred students at Princeton University and was a part of the development team for the “Manhattan Project”, developing the American atomic bomb during WWII.
Bohm was puzzled by physical phenomenon such as the “Quantum-Tunneling Effect” which is at the base of the semi-conductor theory which birthed the creation of transistors, microchips, Josephson junctions in Super-Computers and many more.
The Quantum Tunneling Effect states that a particle such as an electron seems to “know beforehand” if a barrier that it will encounter is strong enough to repulse it back. If the barrier is weak, the particle literally “vanishes” (dematerializes) before encountering the obstacle and “rematerializes” on the other side of the barrier.
Quantum physics suggests that our universe is non-local and infinitely interconnected at some deeper level of reality. If it is so, instead of viewing ‘reality.’ (in the quantum level) that is a particle as a material object traveling through space, it may be better to view it as something that unfolds out of a deeper level of reality; a hologram.
David Bohm drew this conclusion from the Hologram model and coined the “Implicate Order”. *(VERY IMPORTANT!!!)*
This order states that there is a Gigantic Multidimensional Holographic Reality that exists outside of the realm of space and time which is made up of vibratory light carrying *Information.*
This gigantic reality encompasses the totality of Creation.
This “Implicate Order” would spread its tentacles to every sentient unit of Creation as it goes through a constant dance of unfolding itself into its mirror image as the “Explicate World” (the reality perceived by our senses) and projects to each observing individualized piece of consciousness the illusion of a material world “out there” at the level of conscious awareness.
The “Implicate Order” (or you can also call it the “web of life”) is where all possibilities are and time / space has no meaning. The “Implicate Order” keeps on projecting onto the consciousnesses witnessing the explicate world what we perceive as reality in a stepby- step fashion.
After each unfolding, there is an enfolding back onto the “Implicate Order” (while the sentient unit of mind become unconscious again) and the fetching of additional pieces of information that will unfold back holographic-ally to the same unit of consciousness (as that unit becomes aware i:e conscious again of the next step of the show of Creation).
So that in effect, what a unit of consciousness considers a flow of situations is but a succession of discontinuous sensory imagery being projected on-and-off to an entity. Therefore, all an entity is, is a processor of information filtered through his senses that it translates as its reality.
That allows him/her to act upon (co-create) it by choosing the next step.
If we accept that reality, at the macroscopic level, is discontinuous under the illusion of continuity, it would explain why in quantum physics, according to the “uncertainty principle”: only the location of a particle at the microscopic level can, at any point, be precisely described but that its real trajectory cannot be known and remains “fuzzy”.
It is the contact with the Higher Self (interfacing with the *Implicate Order)* that allows one to bridge instantly space/time.
This is why Remote Viewing effective when one operates from the perspective of the higher levels of the subconscious mind.
If this level of merger with the higher level of the subconscious mind is not reached, too much static (noise) interferes in the viewing and one might fail while attempting to view a remote site in the present, past or future
Part 2: What do you mean by the brain being the processor of information?
The human brain has remained to be one of the major enigmas of modern science. Neurobiologists are studying the biochemical reactions within the brain extensively and they now see the effect emotions and thoughts have upon the brain’s very complex electrical and bio-chemical machinery.
However, this very important question remains: Are the changes a result of thoughts and emotions, or are they the cause of it? It’s really like the old chicken-and-egg paradox — which came first?
But back to that question. It basically wonders if the can brain analyze and understand itself and if it’s some sort of giant computer… or more than that? After all, it is through this approximately 1.5kg (or3.3lb) piece of machinery that you construct your universe.
When you say that you see, hear, touch or taste, it is, in reality, the structures of your brain that see, hear, project tactile, olfactory and gustatory perceptions.
Example: excerpt from The Matrix:
Neo: “This isn’t real?” Morpheus: “What is real? How do you define 'real?’ If you are talking about your senses, what you feel, taste, smell, or see, then all you’re talking about are electrical signals interpreted by your brain.”
My point exactly.
The “outside world” is an abstract world made out only of waves and vibrations. You need a brain to be present for the decoding of these waves to be done in a manner that would give you a sensation of “a material world out there”. Without your brain, or with a defective one, you would hear nothing and be plunged in darkness.
For instance, light waves are a particular type of electromagnetic wave, vibrating very rapidly at over 100 billion times per second, that cover a spectrum, depending on their frequency of vibration, from the infrared (least vibratory and undetected by the brain) to the ultraviolet (also invisible to humans) with all the colors of the rainbow in between. The light of our material reality, as we perceive it, becomes light only after being decoded by our brain. Not before!
Vision results from the stimulation of nerve cells in your retina, signaling patterns of light intensity and color, which are “decoded” by the brain in order to give you the impression of spatial reality and separate objects.
The most remarkable feature of visual perception is its ability to convert semi-continuous packets of energy information received at the level of the visual receptors of the brain into individual objects and events, all from the same pulses of electricity running along nerve fibers.
Sound operates in the same way. For those who are not deaf, the brain decodes vibratory waves of a frequency roughly between 20 and 20,000 cycles per second onto different sounds whose intensity has to do with the amplitude of these waves.
For touch, pain, and temperature, physical receptors convey stimuli as nerve impulses to a region of the brain called the thalamus that conveys it to region of the cortex called the sensory cortex. For olfactory senses (smell) and gustatory senses(taste) more complex mechanisms are at play, some of which have not yet been understood.
Therefore, one would tend to imply that the brain, as the central sensory computer of a human being or an animal, would also be the seat of his thoughts. This,in Gerald’s experience, is not the case.
And as we shall see, some neurophysiologists are of the same opinion.
Here is a list of related items to research for yourself:
• Stargate Project - declassified government projects involving psychic phenomena • Russell Targ & Harold Puthoff - researchers at Stanford Research Institute who helped create the remote viewing protocol • Ingo Swann - worked with SRI to help create remote viewing protocol • David Morehouse - Army official recruited for the remote viewing project after having a “near-death experience”.
Legacy Items: Magic Items More Powerful Than “Legendary”...
An item of legacy has the capacity to grow in power as its wielder advances in level. In addition, it confers increasingly powerful special abilities on its wielder.
That character might carry and treasure the same item over his or her entire career as a hero (or villain).
As the Player’s own talents and abilities progress, so too do those of the legacy item, assuming the wielder takes the time to learn its history and awaken its quiescent power with the appropriate rituals.
As a player character, you could discover or inherit an item of legacy. Initially, it might seem like nothing more than a standard magic item.
Only when you learn something of its past do you begin to understand that this object has untapped potential.
By uncovering the item’s full history, you can discover the keys that unlock the item’s full power…
Every item of legacy is distinct from the next, and each has its own unique story.
Another day, another hot take from someone who thinks what Democrats really need to do, must do in order to get back political power is to reach out and cater to specifically white people who voted for Donald Trump. Every single one of these lava hot takes provides some firsthand examples of individuals who claim to be “ex-Democrats” and their woeful laments about why they felt they had no choice but to vote for Trump. My first presidential election was in 1980. I cannot think of any time in the previous nine elections where there have been more “think pieces” written begging for the losing side to understand, take pity on, and cater to the winning side. I’ll bet my right kidney (my left is reserved for Belgian ales) you can search the archives of the New York Times, the Washington Post, any of the major media outlets from 2009 and you won’t find a single article written pleading conservatives to “understand and reach out” to Obama voters. This lack of reciprocal “think pieces” isn’t by accident. If there is one thing I’ve come to understand the past few years, it’s the absolute need for everyone, especially the media, to kowtow to the needs, wants, and feelings of white Americans. In America, all roads lead to whiteness.
In 2009, it was white Americans who were “jilted” and “upset” so it was them who Obama voters needed to reach out to and understand. In 2017 it is white Americans who feel “disrespected” and “not heard” so the demand is once again being made on progressives to reach out and understand. Win or lose, everyone must take the feelings of white America into consideration. As a fifty-six-year-old white American, this is complete and utter bullshit. By default, my feelings have ALWAYS been considered my entire life for no other reason than I’m a white male. I never gave this special status a second thought for a lot of years. I didn’t even notice it. However, thanks to the patience of a good close friend and reading writers like Ta-Nehisi Coates, I’ve come to understand not just how fortunate I’ve been and treated for the random luck of my birth but more importantly, how those not so fortunate have been negatively impacted by the very system that has blessed me so greatly. For this reason and many others, I can’t give a flying fuck about the feelings of white Americans who voted for Trump. They made their choice. They need to accept the consequences of it. Full….fucking….stop.
While some of the hot takes reluctantly admit that Trump voters are somewhat responsible for their vote, they still feel compelled to lay the brunt of the onus on progressives. I’ll accept their half-assed acknowledgment people who voted for Trump are responsible for their decisions. What I won’t accept is the notion that progressives have “pushed white America” towards Trump. Fuck this nonsense! Nobody held a gun to white America’s bigoted/racist head and forced them to fill in the oval or pull the lever on their ballot for Trump. If your political choices are based on what will piss off someone else, you are doing democracy wrong. Voting for someone because it will upset liberals is at best a childish reaction. “I didn’t vote for what would be best for my and my family, for my job, for my health care, for the environment, for the future… I voted for Trump because Hillary called me “deplorable.”” Jesus-childish-fucking-Christ! “I didn’t like the neurosurgeon’s bedside manner so I yanked my kid out of the hospital and took her to the vet for her brain surgery. That’ll teach him!” Way to go Jethro. You just got your kid killed because your fee fees were hurt. If I know you, and I do, you’ll rationalize it by saying, “It was God’s will” or some other nonsense instead of owning up to the fact you are the one responsible for your kid’s death due to your ignorance and arrogance. This is exactly what is happening right now with regard to many Trump voters. They are having buyer’s remorse but instead of owning up to their shitty decision, they are deflecting responsibility to anyone but themselves. Fuck that!
Conservatives can and will tell themselves whatever they want to make themselves feel better about voting for and supporting Trump. They will come up with things like, “economic anxiety,” “need for a change,” “liberals were mean to me” and other such nonsense but these are all intellectual dodges in order to avoid the underlying truth. Conservatives have bought into an ideology bereft of facts, bereft of morality, bereft of anything closely resembling the America and Constitution they claim to love almost as much as the baby Jesus. “Sure Trump and a lot of his supporters said racist and bigoted things, but that isn’t me. I completely disagreed with all of this.” Did you give money to his campaign? Did you vote for him? “Of course, but that doesn’t make me a racist/bigot.” Maybe. This has yet to be determined. At the very least, it shows you are willing to overlook the racism, bigotry, misogyny, blatant lies…for whatever reasons you have. What does this say about you? Am I supposed to sympathize, empathize, reach across the aisle and make peace with you because you are so willing to overlook these things? Fuck no! The “Progressives need to reach out to Trump voters” articles make it sound like this is nothing but a misunderstanding, a mix-up that could easily be the plot of a “Three’s Company” episode instead millions of people being fucked over. This isn’t a misunderstanding. Misunderstandings happen when something happens “out of the blue.” Progressives were waving red flags and screaming, “This is going to be a fucking train wreck!” for months before the election. This isn’t a misunderstanding. This is purposefully ignoring fire alarms then saying, “I’m shocked I lost everything in the fire. I wished someone would have warned me.”
Now, if people who voted for Trump want to have a heart-to-heart conversation about the issues and why they made the decisions they did, I’ll happily participate. I have yet to see anything that can even remotely be viewed as such. Instead, all I see are “Progressives are mean and they are only making me love Trump more.” Bravo! While progressives are telling you taking your kid to the vet for brain surgery was a really, really bad idea, you’re reaching for your Bible and the program from your child’s funeral saying, “IT WASN’T MY FAULT! YOU MADE ME DO IT! IF YOU DON’T STOP, I WILL BE FORCED TO TAKE MY OTHER KID IN FOR THE SAME PROCEDURE!” I’m supposed to reach out to these people? I’m supposed to be understanding and sympathetic? I’m supposed to not even bring up the fact it was their direct actions that led to consequences of that decision? Fuck off! Fuck off hard. Fuck off often. I can’t. I don’t have the capacity or the inclination to let these people off the hook in any form or fashion or their actions. For years, all I’ve heard from conservatives is how liberals have turned our children into a bunch of lazy, entitled brats who have to have a participation trophy every time they do even the most basic task. Trump voters want a participation trophy, a cookie, a pat on the back, a ticker tape parade, and reach-around for voting for the most dangerous administration in U.S. history. Not only can’t I do this, I won’t. I refuse to reward bad behavior. I won’t enable people who are responsible for making an already dysfunctional government completely broken. They need to own their mistakes. There needs to be a collective mea culpa from conservatives. There needs to be a reckoning, an acknowledgment from them that they fucked up and fucked up royally. Then, and only then, will I muster up a smidgen of empathy, give a damn about reaching across the aisle, give a flying fuck about anyone who voted for Trump.
Lucid Dreaming / Astral Projection / Remote Viewing / Out of Body Experiences
..Sure these can be fun and exciting to play with, but there’s so much more to what is really taking place than having a thrill-a-minute, or frightening yourself so badly that you are too afraid to even go to sleep.
I see dozens of posts every day about “Astral Projection” and “sleep paralysis” and “Lucid Dreaming” …and they’re usually very romantic posts, very sexy, and alluring, but they’re also filled, totally loaded, with speculation, misinformation, and deception.
There’s a better way of doing things.. If you’re interested, great, WE (Worldwide Educators) are Here and Now for YOU. And if you’re not interested, well that’s great too, it’s simply a decision.
Life LUVS risk takers. The REAL risk takers, those with the courage to step through all that they “think” they know, and ALL that has already been decided and marketed to be “all there is” to Life, they will be shown what IS Real Now.
Hello everyone! It’s been AGES since I’ve posted a Harry Potter inspired post. This isn’t really so much a spell or anything “serious”, but I thought it might be fun to equate the Hogwarts magical curriculum with magic that can be studied in the real world. This curriculum probably isn’t very practical to follow exactly, but it might be a fun guide for the beginning witch to help guide you in your magical learnings. Perhaps the “years” can be condensed into shorter time periods (like months, for example?) to help make the curriculum a bit more practical. Regardless, I hope you enjoy!
First years are sorted into one of the four houses (you can find plenty of quizzes online to help find out which house you belong in). Use this masterpost to learn more about your house and how it can relate to your real-world magical practice.
Required core classes:
Charms– Basics of spellwork, casting etc.
Potions– Basic kitchen witchcraft
History of magic– Study of the history of witchcraft throughout different cultures, time periods etc.
Defense against the Dark Arts– Basics of magical protection, cleansing etc.
Astronomy– Basics of astrology, planetary witchcraft (aka space witchcraft)
Herbology– Basic green witchcraft and herbalism
Flying– Basics of astral travel, not necessarily performing astral travel at this level yet. Optional for second year.
Transfiguration– Basic energy work & manipulation
Each of the above core subjects should be continued at more advanced levels (flying is optional).
Students must choose a minimum of two of the following elective courses:
Arithmancy– Numerology for divination purposes, sacred geometry
Divination– Tarot reading, tea leaf reading, scrying, and other means of divination
Care and Keeping of Magical Creatures– Study of magical creatures, spirit work, fairy craft etc.
Study of Ancient Runes– Use of runes for divination and magical purposes
Muggle Studies– Use of witchcraft in everyday modern life
Classes are continued as in the 3rd and 4th years.
Magical skills and interests are assessed. Courses for the next year are determined based on these skills and interests. Courses may be specialized to fit the student’s needs and skill levels.
Certain core classes may be dropped at this time to make way for the classes that are of the student’s interests and skill-levels.
Optional: Apparition– Remote viewing, visualization skills etc.
Optional: Alchemy– Elemental magic studies
Classes continue on normally from the sixth year. Apparition will not be offered, but alchemy will still be available.
Available all years. Can be used to help students explore their own personal interests.
Ancient Studies– Similar to History of Magic with an emphasis on ancient magical practices
Art– Sigil design and usage
Frog Choir, Music, Orchestra– Incorporating music and songs into witchcraft
Ghoul Studies– Spirit work
Magical Theory– Philosophical and theoretical approaches to different types of magic and how they work (see theseposts for some examples)s
Xylomancy– Obscure, overlooked, and uncommon forms of divination
I hope you enjoyed! Much of the information about Hogwarts curriculum is appreciatively sourced from the Harry Potter wiki :) Thanks for reading,
