Post No. 751 - Lucid Dreaming

While I am in Bris-Vegas for Dad, I'm doing more reading of Katharine Kerr's Deverry books, and "The Gold Falcon" has some excellent descriptions of the challenges and values of lucid dreaming (Joan Grant's "Winged Pharaoh" is another useful source on this). Attempting to gain lucidity (and, according to Kerr, "rationality") in one's dreams can be well worth the effort ...

Post No. 750 – Family

This is a quick post about my trip up north to tropical-ish Bris-Vegas. The drive was a bit rushed, as when I left I was on a time deadline, but there were still good moments along the way. I was skirting west of a major rain event, one that had caused flash flooding and other problems, and there was a lot of water about, mostly beside, some on, the road. It made a pleasant change from seeing the country dry and dusty, and there were still birds about – including one hawk perched on a fencepost who watched me as I drove by.

The most magickal part of the trip, though, was the evening I pushed past sunset to get to Brisbane. I went a different route to normal, the southern way from Goondiwindi (which, incidentally, is pronounced Gun-de-windy), through Warwick and the old Cunningham’s Gap way through the Great Dividing Range, which used to be the main highway. The term “Great Dividing Range” is a bit of a misnomer for many people from overseas: these peaks are rugged and rough, and it took whites a long way to find a way through them, but they’re only a few thousand feet high. Their rough shapes, and the winding road, led to a few times when the headlights of cars and trucks coming up the other side of a hill would back-light the low cloud and fog, and the scene looked like something out of a movie – especially when the moon added her light to the scene.

The moon, incidentally, decided to hide her face rather than watch me try, for the first in over a decade, manage the steep, twisting descent of Cunningham’s Gap on a wet night – which didn’t help the visibility :)

It was a bit of an old fashioned country night drive: no lights, no lane separation, trees up to the drains on either side, the shadows of the hills coming and going in the dark in a rather welcoming and comforting dance.

Driving through Brisbane wasn’t so nice – as I mentioned when I posted about my recent trip up here to help take care of Dad. Sigh.

I’d like to spend a paragraph or two in wonderment at my father. One of the problems he has been having is hallucinating things like his home being full of other people. When I was talking to him during one of these episodes, his primary concern was the welfare of these other people – he wanted to make sure they all had jobs, and were OK. When I was talking to my brother-in-law up here, he told a similar story, from when he was visiting Dad in hospital earlier today, of how Dad was wanting to make sure everyone had enough.

This man is having serious health problems, and his first, instinctive desire is to make sure that everyone else is OK.

I love him, but I think, independent of that, he is a wonderful, compassionate, giving human being.

Sadly, his health has been going for some time.

And yes, all this is being written by the woman who keeps giving warnings about families, how they aren’t all good, and they don’t have the right to control people, etc.

Why?

Well, I know people who have suffered through some appalling families, but the situation is also a little akin to someone I’ve said about relationships and domestic violence. I am of the view that partners in a relationship should have enough financial and other reserves to be able to leave if they need to (or want to). That should be an example set, in particular, by those in good relationships – who can agree to do so without rancour or stress. That leads to people who are in bad relationships being able to hold them up as an example, and perhaps say “well, relationship X is solid, and they’ve done this, so I think we should as well, to also set an example”. That would work in possibly only a low percentage of abusive relationships, but that’s better than nothing, and maybe it will lead to people automatically making sure they have enough to leave before they go into a relationship.

Similarly, it is most impactful if people who have good family situations say “hey, I know I’m on a good thing here, but I appreciate it, and I know that not everyone is as fortunate, so we shouldn’t put pressure on those people by being insensitive, or presumptuous, or put them in a situation of having to say ‘hey, well, my situation isn’t/wasn’t so good, you know’ ”.

I’d probably write that more elegantly if I wasn’t exhausted by the trip (I’m not driving up in less than 3 days in future) and worried about Dad.


So now, time to get ready for my next trip to Dad in hospital …

Post No. 749 – For Sunday evening’s meditation-clearing

I've managed to do a news post. In terms of my psychic weather reports, I will be continuing to focus on Central Africa and the Middle East. My apologies for the rough formatting ...

For everyone’s convenience, I’ve shifted the reminders / explanations about Sunday’s meditation-clearing to this post. I have a simplified blogiography of posts related to this work here, a list of themes I have identified here, and my changing the personality of oppressors post, which I am contemplating expanding to include some key people to work on, is here. (Also, see here for some investigation into evidence of the effectiveness of this type of work, which shows variability [and mentions causes] and cycles in the energetic/consciousness response.) A range of information on emotions is here, and suggestions on how to work with emotions is here.

The purpose of posting these news links is not only to inform: it is also to stimulate a connection to nonBPLF units that need to be cleared and BPLF units that need to be strengthened. That only works if you don’t let yourself be overwhelmed by this, so take it in small chunks if you need to, but remember to actively clear and heal! … including yourself.

Also, in the same way that activists used to argue that “the personal is political”, the energies we use and manifest in our daily lives contribute to the larger soup of energies that influence world events. If you want to, for example, improve the communication of nations, improve yours. To help stop abuses of power, be always ethical in your conduct. Want peace? Then work in an informed, understanding, intelligent and nuanced way for peace in yourself and your life.

Now, the themes – short, medium and long term - that come to mind for my work this week, after I review all this news, are (and no apologies if this repeats the themes of any previous weeks – in fact, given the size of this task, that is to be expected):
   (a)   based on my interpretation of information here and here with Saturn in Sagittarius contributing to finding an authentic balance (until 20th December, 2017), Uranus in Aries contributing to fresh and possibly radical starts (until some date in the Year 2018), and Pluto in Capricorn contributing to a transformation of power and business (and careers) (until some date in the Year 2024), conditions are ripe for a change for the better in world politics;
   (b)   there remains an enormous need to clear nonBPLF energy – the thought forms, unattached energy and scars of the collective unconscious created by millennia of violence, including rescuing those who have been trapped by that history, and to heal the warped views, seemingly inherent biases and other damage done;
   (c)   viewing the overall emotional state of the world from an elemental point of view, the need for a more nuanced view by those in conflict situations, and the need for more responsibility around the exercise of power, suggests the world needs more Air and Æther;
   (d)   continuing to talk, and to accept the need for communication, remains a high priority for achieving a true and lasting peace throughout the world;
   (e)   abuses of power continue to plague the world, on all scales – small, medium and big;

News and other matters from this week include the following (opportunities/good news are shown in green; comments are shown in purple; WARNING: some of these links may contain triggers around issues such as violence, sexual assault, discrimination, etc).

   with regard to education:   many higher education students are studying for jobs that will not exist;   a questioning of the biases and aims of higher education in South Africa;

   with regard to the conflict in Iraq (noting that Iraq was once a peaceful and prosperous society, before the USA / CIA backed revolution – see here):   the UN Refugee Agency and its partners have launched a national hotline to provide “timely aid-related” information for Iraqis affected by the ongoing humanitarian crisis;   a car bomb has exploded while being defused, killing 6 and wounding 10;

   with regard to the Libyan civil war:   the latest round UN-facilitated political dialogue has concluded in Skhirat, Morocco.

   the US-based and -centric “War on the Rocks” blog (which I have found may also have other articles that I have concerns with - and thus do not provide links to, unless I want you to think … :) ) also has:   an article on sloppy and perhaps mis- reporting by the Associated Press in relation to a small part of the Iran nuclear deal, which has caused problems;   a critique of the view that the USA is an empire;   a (good) review of the use of scholarship in international relations;   a review of the purpose of military forces (incidentally, as a digression, I find the tendency of people to refer to any military vehicle as a tank annoying – and discrediting on their part);

   the Middle East Eye also has:
 - a report that Israel is getting most of its oil from Iraqi Kurds;   Israel's former defence minister Ehud Barak has said in an interview that three Iran attack plans backed by both himself and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu were blocked by the military;   disputes over a massacre in last year’s fighting in Gaza;

Post No. 748 - Temporary Pause

As my father has been taken to hospital, this blog will be on pause while I head back up to Brisbane - probably for at least a fortnight. Hopefully I won't lose readers as I did last time ...

For those who are taking part in the meditation project, I will be continuing to focus on Yemen: the BPLF energies there must exceed the nonBPLF for the situation to start improving. Other than that, any place that is trouble is in need of clearing nonBPLF energies and sending Spiritual Love, Clear Light, Spiritual Maturity and Balanced Positivity.

And healing thoughts for my father would also be very welcome.

This Blog as a Course - Lesson Nine

One of the things I present in my blogiography is a set of suggestions on how to approach this blog as a course - that is, how to work through this chaotic hodge podge of material in such a way that some organised benefit may come from it.

Learning involves, at times, sometimes tedious work - repetition to learn multiplication tables (apparently research has now shown that is best), reviewing, thinking about things, and so forth. This lesson involves all that sort of work: the aim is to integrate what you have learned into your being - ALL parts of your Being (look up consciousness). Another way of putting this is: aim to know something for all time, not just til you get through some exam or short term period.


Incidentally, each of these "lessons" may take many months to work through properly. They've not been done on the basis of doing these weekly or monthly.

Lesson Nine – Consolidation
The best way to learn something is teach it (or try to!), so … how would you teach someone else what you have been learning? Re-write the notes I’ve provided in a format that suits you, and include what you’ve recorded in your journal or diary – which will be superceded by this exercise, if properly undertaken.

Full Moon in Pisces

If you would like to do something for the Full Moon in Pisces, which is on Sunday 30th August, at 04:36 A.M., according to my ephemeris, I have a suggestion for a ritual here.






As my rituals are based on astrology, they should be performed within the time period that the Moon is in that sign – which in this instance will be from Saturday 29th August at 06:51 P.M. until Monday 31st August at 06:34 P.M.

Also, you can find a Druidic addition for peace here.

Post No. 747 – Psychic Weather Report No. 0042



There is an introduction / reminder / explanation about these posts here (and also see here for some investigation into evidence of the effectiveness of this type of work, which shows variability [and mentions causes] and cycles in the energetic/consciousness response). I have a simplified blogiography of posts related to this work here, a list of themes I have identified here, and my changing the personality of oppressors post, which I am contemplating expanding to include some key people to work on, is here. It is also worth contemplating that one of the greatest weaknesses of those who oppose Balanced Positivity is the inherent pain, suffering and negativity of their aims and means – from the personal slights, insults and traumas left by the petty tyrant, autocrat, dictator/monarch or the ruthless (some at least are not; some are BPLF) oligarch or politician, through the social dislocation of the economic ideologue to the long-lasting trauma, injury, death and desolation of society caused by those who use violence or war as a means to achieve power or impose their will. It may take time, but people WILL eventually realise what is not good, and will take action – which is why slavery is no longer ubiquitous, and why the march to freedom and democracy is underway – tentatively, and with backsliding and mistakes along the way, but inexorable nevertheless.
Also, as you read this, consider this: how does one outflank an idea, or attack an emotion in the rear? It is as well to consider what those who are unbalanced could do to good ideas and emotions, as well as considering BPLF ways to outflank or ‘attack in the rear’ bad ideas/emotions.
As a first point, it is also recommended that you read yesterday’s summation of world events. The key themes were:
(a)   based on my interpretation of information here and here with Saturn in Sagittarius contributing to finding an authentic balance (until 20th December, 2017), Uranus in Aries contributing to fresh and possibly radical starts (until some date in the Year 2018), and Pluto in Capricorn contributing to a transformation of power and business (and careers) (until some date in the Year 2024), conditions are ripe for a change for the better in world politics;
(b)   viewing the overall emotional state of the world from an elemental point of view, externally focused air (i.e., some thinking) is occurring, which is good, but it will need the flexibility of Water to lead to a good result;
(c)   perception – or, as it used to be called, one’s public honour – is an unavoidable aspect of democracy. Sometimes, for the greater good, that means one must stand aside from what one knows one can do well, which relates to several situations in the world this week, ranging from “small” local to world impacting;
(d)   abuse of power remains a problem, as does discrimination against anyone who is “different” from oneself in some way, and, even more concerningly, sometimes those two problems combine. Where abuses occur, those responsible, or responsible for hiding it, must occur - , which also relates to several situations in the world this week, ranging from “small” local to world impacting;
(e)   the chook of rhetoric against Muslims in the West is about to come home to roost in ways that the original speakers may not, in their stupidity and/or desire for power, have intended;
(f)   “The real dividing line is not between Christianity and Islam, Sunni and Shia, East and West. It is between people who believe in coexistence, and those who don’t”, Tom Fletcher, Former UK Ambassador to Lebanon;
(g)   it is important not to be blinded by one’s aims or attitudes: for instance, more French civilians died on D-Day in June 1944 than allied soldiers, and many of the indigenous people of the Pacific suffered under and fought the Japanese. In the West, there has been a history of media focusing on Western deaths. And it starts, in some ways, with the banishment of people to the “out crowd” in schools … ;
From my runic and other divination:
This week’s Yi Jing (formerly called the I Ching; I use Sam Reifler’s 1974 book, pub. Bantam, ISBN 0-553-11789-0; I use his modern coins method) for the coming week was:
No. 4 – Mang (Youthful Ignorance) 

   From the deep at the foot of the mountain
   a spring issues.
   The human is resolute and takes care of themselves.
   I do not seek the ignorant.
   The ignorant seek me.
   I will instruct them.
   I ask nothing but sincerity.
   If they come out of habit
   they become troublesome.
   Success
   If you are firm.
Moving Line No. 5
   The barefoot boy.
   Auspicious.
Moving Line No. 1
   The ignorant person must be dealt with severely
   and encouraged to open their mind
   if their ignorance is to be dispelled.
   Some guilt
   if you are too firm for too long.
This amounts to a reminder of the need to be genuine and humble, and a warning of some possible harsh lessons. If you are dishing out the lessons, don’t overdo it. I’m a little wary of my work with the Yi Jing this week, however: I wouldn’t have expected a hexagram like that for a global event.
From http://www.cafeastrology.com/thismonthinastrology.html: “Saturn turning direct on August 2nd is a strong reminder to take care of our responsibilities and to face reality, particularly as Saturn squares Jupiter and semi-squares Pluto in early August. Retrograde Venus is part of this on the 4th-5th as it aligns with Jupiter and squares Saturn. This Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto configuration is tricky. We may be forced to restructure our lives, plans, or relationships now in order to better fit changing circumstances or in accordance with rules, laws, limits, and the demands of reality. It is best to breathe new life into old plans rather than to strike out with a new plan altogether. We may need to cut back on something in order to grow in another area. It's important not to overextend ourselves at this time and to avoid attempting easy fixes or shortcuts. Exaggerating our importance or power, either to ourselves or others, should also be avoided. The need to adjust our expectations becomes obvious. ... We first saw Saturn semi-square Pluto in November 2014 and this aspect is now completing. ...”
I have not provided any extra places to work on, nor a geostationary uncooperative, to allow a focus to continue on the Middle East for this coming week:
I no longer type up a list of places with most/least of energy - you can get that most effectively from the images showing the development of the contours for this week’s assessment:
Overall, there are BPLF highs over the North Atlantic Ocean, and the Middle East and Indian sub-continent. From these highs are shelves of BPLF energy to –as viewed in the image - the east, across part of Russia, East Asia, and the Pacific Ocean, and to the west, across North America to meet the shelf of BPLF energy across the Pacific. Non BPLF energy is highest over the Middle East, extending over Central Africa and the Indian Ocean. There are several scattered lows of nonBPLF energy, and my overall sense is that the focus on the Middle East has, in a sense, cauterised the source of an infection affecting the rest of the world. The non BPLF, however, are striving to keep the people in the Middle east unbalanced and suffering, and their influence there is still higher than that of the BPLF. Hence, I will be continuing the planned 9 day focus on the Middle East. In addition, the context between balance and spiritual maturity and imbalance is significant in Central Africa and the Indian Ocean, and East Asia (the latter probably focus on the tensions between the two Koreas, this week).
My approach this week will be:
  • Sunday to Thursday (inclusive)
     - invoke Fire and Wunjo ;
     - clear nonBPLF units, particularly those of the sense that problems are to far away to be of concern, from, and send BPLF energy, particularly passion, inspiration and the spiritual ecstasy of “doing the right thing”, even if one has to make BPLF sacrifices to do so, to the Middle East;
     - invoke Air and Gifu / Gebo for balance, and then devoke;
  • Friday and Saturday
     - invoke Æther and Yr;
     - clear nonBPLF units, particularly those of detachment, from, and send BPLF energy, particularly “harmonious balance” (aka Balanced Positivity), to, the Middle East, Europe, the Mediterranean Sea, Northern and Central Africa, and the Indian Ocean.
If you feel up to it, you may also wish to extend this work on Saturday to include Southern and Central America, Australia and East Asia (specifically, the Korean Peninsula – which I omitted to mark on the map this week: my apologies).
Irrespective of this assessment, however, please join us in trying to make sure that the Shield of Hope area formed by (part or all of) the South Atlantic Ocean, Southern and Eastern Africa (including both sources of the Nile), the Indian sub-continent (including the Himalayas) and the Indian Ocean, shown outlined in gold on this week’s energy map, consistently has BPLF energy at or above 7 by the time Neptune leaves Pisces, on around 30th March, 2025 (a date which has an eclipse the day before). If you wish to do a little more coordinated action on a positive strategic front, I'm also planning on routinely sending BPLF energy to Hong Kong, Tunisia, and Mexico, which show potential as "outposts of the BPLF” and I wish to encourage their change for the better, and through the Red Sea and Suez Canal to the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea.



[1] BPLF = Balanced Positive (spiritual) Light Forces. See here and here for more on this. 
[2] Please see here, here and my post "The Death of Wikipedia" for the reasons I now recommend caution when using Wikipedia. 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").
[3] I apologise for the formatting: it seems Blogger is no longer as WYSIWYG as it used to be, and there are a lot of unwanted changes to layout made upon publishing, so I often have to edit it immediately after publishing to get the format as close to what I want as possible.

Love, light, hugs and blessings

My "blogiography" (list of all posts and guide as to how to best use this site) is here, and my glossary/index is here.

I started this blog to cover karmic regression-rescue (see here and here), and it grew ... See here for my group mind project, here and here for my "Pagans for Peace" project (and join me for a few minutes at some time between 8 and 11 PM on Sunday, wherever you are, to meditate-clear for peace), and here for my bindrune kit-bag. I also strongly recommend learning how to flame, ground and shield, do alternate nostril breathing, work with colour, and see also here and be flexible.

The real dividing line is not between Christianity and Islam, Sunni and Shia, East and West. It is between people who believe in coexistence, and those who don’t.
