Post No 580 - A (spirit) rescue curiosity

A couple of days ago I was doing my daily clearings of negative energy and rescues, and I found one uncooperative (I must get my glossary done on terms like these  apologies for the delay!) in a fairly fixed position in space, almost like a geostationary satellite. Rather unusual - curious, in a sense ... but it did give the entity concerned a steady focus on the area of earth that he (the entity had adopted a male image) was destructively influencing - which, in this case, was the Middle East, where, in Gaza [2], the karmic and psychic echoes of the Jewish-Roman wars two millennia ago are being replayed, much as the Iran-Iraq war was a rerun of the Eastern Front of the World War Part Two - except, unlike the Iran-Iraq war where many of those involved were literally the reincarnated entities who had fought a few decades earlier [3] , in the case of Gaza the situation is more influenced by psychic energies that need to be cleared, just as the massive negative psychic influence around Putin needs to be cleared (perhaps oddly, the problems here in Australia with Abbott and Hockey are more to do with their character deficiencies than negative psychic influences - I have more hopes of changing Mr Putin, than of changing Messrs Abbott and Hockey ... but I will work to contain and neutralise ALL such evil).

And now ... back to everyday life.


[3] As well as individuals, groups experience a return of their karma as well. Hence, to some extent, the invasion of Ireland by England a few hundred years ago was partly karmic return from the raids that the Irish had made on England more than a millennia earlier. Most times it takes a long time to get the groups of souls and conditions arranged for this to happen (over a millennia, in the example I just gave), but in the case of the Iran-Iraq war, the conditions and souls were available for a quick rerun. Many of those souls learned the second time round, but I've watched a gradually smaller portion of that group continue their enmity in other conflicts since ... 

Actually, on that, one of my curses in this life has been more insight to other people's motivations than I care to have. When I was younger, I would often respond to that, rather than the image people were trying to portray (especially when people had a ... "romantic" interest in me - still no adult filter here :) ). I've been thinking of writing something about that - I have a few short stories in mind/underway, but, combined with some recent experience of discrimination, may have a post or two to make here ...

I'm also exploring use of h2g2, although that doesn't appear to be as extensive (h2g2 is intended - rather engagingly - to be the Earth edition of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy").

Post No. 579 – The past and next week, for tonight’s meditation and reading


What a week.

A highlight is now having a skip load of rubbish from a clean out ready to be collected. It is good to do things like that (after five years here for me and nine for my partner, and the moving out of her children, we were well and truly ready for that:), and some of the stuff I am getting rid of will assist me in moving on from some past periods of my life, as well as just enabling a clearing of stagnant energy.

A low point is someone who I have the misfortune to work with complaining that another culture lives differently during one of THEIR religious periods. Still, in the course of communicating to our HR department about that, I came across this excellent site. The truly staggering thing about having to sit near that person is that it came about as a result of a rearrangement of the office during which a former manager of mine thought that we would all get along swimmingly. Maybe he thought that being in the same sort of (advanced) age group would somehow outweigh the arguments I had heard that person and I having over various topics, but more likely, he just either wasn’t observant or didn’t actually think correctly about the situation.

He had thought, that’s true enough, but he hadn’t thought CORRECTLY: he had thought the matter through solely from the point of view of what was important to himself, rather than, as the old saying goes, putting himself in another’s shoes.

That sort of sloppy, lazy or ineffectual thinking underlies MANY of the problems of the Western/industrialised world. I’ve been watching the excellent (well, the first episode was … After loading skips I have to watch the second on catch up TV … ) series “The Men Who Make Us Spend” (see here also for another review of it; I can’t find any useful link on the BBC, which originally screened it – apparently they don’t make their programmes available to anyone else in the world), and reflecting on the fact that one of the reasons Australia has such generally poor politicians is because voters fail to think properly and effectively about many issues. (It's also why a lot of people foolishly put personal convenience ahead of internet safety, and expediency ahead of 'right living' ... )

As an example of that last point, ever since the evil John Howard, Australia’s Governments have been exploiting the politics of fear to get support for their policies of abusing the victims of war and persecution who had been seeking a better future for their kids by becoming refugees. Australia now, in my opinion, is nearly as guilty as the original nations these people are fleeing in terms of human rights abuses. The response they’ve introduced in the last couple of years that this is allegedly about safety, introduced, in my opinion, in response to criticism, is utterly nonsensical.

Their actions are akin to addressing safety problems in the workplace by preventing workers going to work.

Their actions are, in my opinion, in breach of international Law – including things like SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea [2] ), and have been ever since the Tampa affair.

This disrespect for international Law continues under Tony Abbott, with breaches of Indonesia’s sovereignty.

Now, most activists approach this issue on the basis of compassion for refugees, and target politicians. That is admirable, but I don’t think entirely effective, as the people who REALLY have to change on this is the voters who put those politicians in. When activists can go into blue collar areas, such as The Pines, where I used to live, and have arguments about employment and sovereignty THAT EFFECTIVELY ADDRESS THESE ISSUES FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF THOSE OTHER PEOPLE, then we will be able to start making Australia a genuinely better place to live.

Of course, activists don’t have the resources to do that, so we’re back to politicians, or perhaps the media, but:
(a) politicians are seeking to immorally constrain the media (see here), and
(b) some sections of the media pander to the lowest common denominator (see, for instance, here, here and here).

Ultimately, the solution is to teach kids to think properly, which is why I am such a fan of Brendan Myers’ “Clear and Present Thinking”.

What is it going to take to have that introduced? And how long will that take?

I don’t know, so in the meantime, I will keep working on, as the saying in my signature bloc says, having the world of business and commerce remember that it is a SERVANT of the community, not a dictator of what society should be.

Now let’s turn to the topic of peace, and tonight’s meditation.

I mentioned sending energy to sections of Africa in recent posts. Well, there’s been a plane crash there this week. I could say that the energy didn’t work (possibly because the quantity or quality of energy was inadequate), or … it could be that the energy has helped people transition, or has and will help with the response.

Most times I do this nothing happens that I know of, and I simply have to persist, trusting that the direction to do so has made some sort of appreciable difference – hopefully preventative.

An on prevention, this article gives some useful information about the value of prevention in terms of world disasters. On the other hand, this article by an excellent media person who I respect, points out the limits many people feel on empathy.

I’m not going to recommend any specific topics or matters to consider tonight, other than to point out that there has been a focus on MH17 in Western media to the exclusion of other problems, including the two other plane crashes, one into another war zone, the other into a suburb.

The rest of the world still bleeds – not just the Middle East, where there has been an escalation of violence, but many other places as well. The Ebola outbreak in West Africa continues, famine is imminent in South Sudan, and so on.

On other matters, I think this post was a clumsily written (the word ‘pathology’ in the heading is inflammatory), and missed the issues of unearned advantage (‘privilege’) and social power, but has a point that is worth thinking about. I gained most food for thought from the comments. The original person tarred all Pagans with the same brush, and failed to acknowledge those neochristians who also seek attention. In terms of the response, it reminds me a situation around a gathering some years ago where I wanted to provide education about an excluded group, and was overtaken by someone taking legal action. Education is fine if you have the time and energy, but many people get tired and worn out, and may find others are slow to pick up the burden.

There was a suggestion by someone this week that workers do three 11-hour days, and then have a four day weekend.

What a load of rot. This was clearly developed by someone who doesn’t have kids or housework to contend with, and no interest in stress management or spirituality.Possibly the suggestion was as a result of psychic influence by entities wanting to increase control over people ... On that, I watched a TV show about Robert F Kennedy this week, and the vagueness of RFK's assassin could be viewed as: 
 - attempting to deny what one had done, a little like a guilty toddler may deny something with a view to making a parent believe they didn't do it; 
 - a legal ploy to avoid the death sentence; 
 - the result of hypnotic conditioning, the line taken by the programme, or
 - possession *
I'm not going to bother to ask my Patron Deities/Higher Self/BPLF Guides which it was: there are more important matters to attend to.

As a final point, here is a wonderful story about getting kids to connect with Nature.

 * The solution for this would be for other people to (spirit) 'rescue' the possessing entity, and the possessed person to learn about psychic protection. The prevention is for more rescue and psychic education and self protection generally ...

New Moon in Leo

If you would like to do something for the New Moon in Leo, which is after the Dark Moon on 27th July (Dark Moon and New Moon are completely different energies - do not conflate the two, especially not out of laziness: strictly speaking, the New Moon work should be when a crescent is visible, but at that stage the Moon will possibly be in another astrological sign so I just delay until at least a few hours after Dark Moon, and preferably the new day), according to my ephemeris, well, I have not yet written a ritual, but check here for when I do.

Post No. 578 – The past and next week, and for tomorrow night’s meditation



The major news this last week has been the terrible tragedy of the likely shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17.

There are still some earthbound entities to be rescued from that flight, and there is obviously a great deal of healing to be done for the family and friends of those who perished.

In addition, the blocking of safety people from accessing the site, a certain amount of political grandstanding and media spin, some possibly poor intelligence work (did anyone know the missiles could reach that altitude and fail to warn those who allowed the air space to be open above 32,000 feet?), and some poor risk assessment by a number of airlines (not just Malaysia Airlines) need to be worked on. Clear anything negative which could prevent a BPLF [1] outcome on this (remember my workshop notes here and here) as well as sending positive energy in tomorrow night’s meditation.

The big issue in terms of this tragedy is, of course, the political fallout - including the potential for an escalation of the current conflict.

Now, Mr Putin appears to me to be in a difficult situation. The impression created by the Western media is that Russia supplied the missiles and the training. Apart from the question of whether or not that should happen, was the training adequate? Was appropriate radar also provided so that those using could detect transponder signals? Was the suggestion I read in one media article that those responsible could have been drunk true?

Now, I consider, on the balance of probabilities, that the evidence - and past history – is pretty good that the Russians did supply the missiles and the training. There needs to be some holding to account for this (seeing BPLF justice done can be healing for the victims - at the absolute minimum, a sincere and credible apology from the wrongdoers needs to be offered), but in thinking about that, remember - and I am assuming that those reading this have not lost loved ones in this tragedy: if you have, you have my condolences, and please keep in mind that this paragraph is not written for you - the quote attributed to Gandhi that I included in this post:

“Do you fight to change things, or to punish?”

I’ve seen too much of the latter, ranging from the terrifying, palpable anger I felt from those marching against involvement in the Vietnam War as a young child witnessing them, to the howling mobs who bay for vengeance against child abusers as they are transported to and from courts. Both feed the negative entities who feed off such energies – see here, here and here,

Also think about my post on changing oppressors, but remember that it applies at all levels of conflicts – from those at the top, through those “in the middle” who maybe want to feel that their nation is great, down to those with the bravado and swagger and rush to fight at the face of the conflict (those last ones are, I rather suspect, often actually in the minority at those locations): all are lacking in spiritual maturity and balanced positivity; all have character flaws and lessons to learn, as do we all. Help them to change so that this never happens again, and all conflicts are settled as peacefully as is possible.

It is possible. I read one article in the last few days which criticised President Obama for not taking action when chemical weapons were used in Syria. Well, action was taken – the last chemical weapons were destroyed recently, I think, and this was as a result of an initiative by Russia. The action wasn’t western military involvement, and the tragedy in Syria is still going on, but chemical weapons were taken out of the mix. To fail to acknowledge that is to risk throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

Things like talking, thinking about the lives of future generations, and taking appropriate action when it is warranted (I’ve been re-watching “Gandhi” and “Thirteen Days” in the last few days) are the physical world actions that people will need to take to resolve these tragedies. I don’t do any of that, however: what I do is work with energies to make other people’s work possible, and more likely to be BPLF. I don’t have to necessarily know what the physical solutions are (I never dreamed of the solution Russia came up with in regard to chemical weapons in Syria, for instance), only what energy work to do.

I look forward to you joining me in that tomorrow evening.

I’m going to leave this week’s post at that.This matter is going to keep a lot of people busy for some time ... 


PS - this article gives an sadly credible insight into the other major issue occupying the media at the moment: Gaza ...
