How Authentic Forgiveness Can Change The Impact Of Cause And Effect In Life

 by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
I somehow feel like collectively we are all together huffing and puffing thru one big intensive wave of awakening energy after the other, since the very beginning of this year full of power for new creations and new beginnings. Last month Virgo Full Moon has brought up the chance for many people, to confront themselves with their anger issues and to understand the difference between a healthy expression of anger and a destructive one.
When we are brave enough to confront ourselves with the rather uncomfortable feelings like anger, frustration, irritation, or victim-hood ideas – than they can guide us to higher actions which are more authentic to our truth. Every single time we climb another level of consciousness, we are invited to look back thru our past and forgive ourselves as well as others, what ever was out of sync with the divine laws that are ruling our life’s. This act than transforms the impact of our actions and softens the payback ;-).

Most people are aware of “the law of cause and effect”, which is originally known as the hermetic principle of correspondence. In the Bible this divine law is mentioned as “As you sow, so shall you reap”. The law states that whatever energy we send out into the Universe, will over time, in a transformed but equal form of impact, come back to us.

Which means in essence, the principle teaches us about the return of our actions to our own door! So how does cause and effect turn into Karma in our lives? The expression Karma is a Sanskrit word for “action”, which refers to the cause in this principle. Newton realized a long time ago, that within the blueprint of our universe, ‘every action must have a reaction’. That is what creates the effect. What ever we decide to think, speak or do in this world, initiates a force that will create a reaction accordingly to the energy we have send out.
The law states: Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happens according to the divine laws; miracles, kismet, synchronicity and good or bad luck are nothing, but names for this law when not recognized correctly.

How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.
Wayne W. Dyer

Violence does, in truth, recoil upon the violent, and the schemer falls into the pit which he digs for another.
Arthur Conan Doyle

The law is simple. Every experience is repeated or suffered till you experience it properly and fully the first time.
Ben OkriThe Ascended Master Kuan Yin or Kwan Yin is known as the Goddess of forgiveness and divine mercy. Her divine qualities are compassion, kindness, fertility, health and magic. She is patron of the children and of the helpless beings here on earth. In China she is also known as the goddess of great mercy, great pity, salvation from misery, salvation from woe, the embrace of thousand arms and thousand eyes. She is a Bodhisattva, an Enlightened One, who refused to enter the divine realms and vowed instead to stay in the earthly realms until all living beings are free from suffering and ready to reach enlightenment.

Morning Affirmation
Goddess within me,
God around me,
Spirit throughout me,
I will complete this day
In balance and love.

Kuan Yin Mantra
OM MANI PADME HUM (3-11x)
(Phonetic pronunciation: OM MAH-NEE PUD-MAY HOOM
Translation: OM! Hail to the jewel in the heart of the lotus!)

Kuan Yin Invocation
Mother of Love and Compassion
Bestow your wisdom upon me
Help me see humanity through your eyes
Help me master the love and compassion
that you hold near your heart of Gold
Help me shine like a beacon in the night
and see my reflection in your tear of love
Kuan Yin I thank you for your tireless love,
your patience and hope for humanity
Amen

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
Mahatma Gandhi

We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.
Martin Luther King, Jr.Dear ones, I hope this insides, the prayers and Mantra will be helpful for you, in case you are in need of tools on your path to self-liberation thru the power of forgiveness. If you are already used to work with the power of the violet flame and the force of the Ascended Master Saint Germain – just keep going!! He is the Chohan (leader) of the divine violet ray and has the capacity to unite all the colors abundant expressions for you.
Love and Successful Alchemy!

Knowing When To Walk Away And When To Stay In Relationships

4by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
two days ago I shared on facebook the picture you see below, with the theme of walking away from things that threaten our peace or self-respect. The post had an extra ordinary high respond, and not only on likes and shares, but also on how many people felt triggered to respond and share their difficulties and experiences with “walking away”.
Some of you might remember that the energies of the Gemini New Moon on June 4th and 5th have triggered the release of inner oppositions within our emotional bodies, which are the source of suffering and irritation in our relationships. Many had to go thru challenging situations, in order to see where their reality does no longer match, the things they truly desire by heart and soul. So how do we know when it is time to go, and when it is better to stay?

Dear Ones, a personal message, New Beginnings will be closed from June 1st till September 4th! In this time I will be posting my articles rather sporadically, expecting to pick up the daily service after that period! If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a Facebook group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!!

The first thing to make sure of is, that you truly are in a space of self-worth, self-respect and inner peace, when making the decision to cut the cores with a person in your life. If you are in a place of anger or rejection of the person or their actions, it only delays the healing of your own life!! To be successful as collective in an awakening process into the Golden Age of Aquarius, we have to end all pattern of abuse in our life, and this is where we need to be wise and see the truth as it is.
When we are able to talk to the other being involved, and we see that there is a responds in awareness, which leads to transformed actions, than there is no reason to walk out on them. More tricky it gets when we express our feelings, our needs and desire authentically, and the other one refuses to acknogladge them. Than we need dividing wisdom and a clear mind.

Because when we can see people, their actions and also the situations we create with them – with wide open eyes, do the work of transforming our own emotions that we dedect and than still see and feel the need to walk away – than that’s what we should do. And don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that being aware of the breaking point of old pattern automatically makes it easy to actually make the step, but it still is what we have to do if we desire to grow. That can create fears, insecurity, doubts and bring up feelings of rejection and isolation from childhood or past life impacts, so we are well of to have some handy tools to navigate the emotional waves.1 (2)One of the most powerful sources of comfort and inner strength that we can work with, when we feel the fear of loss creeping up our spine and just want to turn around running back to the status quo, is the Ascended Master Arya Tara. She is one aspect of the big Tara, a Buddhistic Bodhisattva, an Enlightened One, who serves humanity with the quality of our inner sanctuary. The inner temple every being caries in their higher heart, the place where world peace, oneness and authentic bliss emerge from.

The main Mantra for all Tara Figures is this Tara Mantra in Sanskrit:
oṃ tāre tuttāre ture svāhā – which is pronounced as..
oṃ tāre tu tāre ture soha

More directed is the Atisha prayer to Arya Tara
om, jikpa gye kyobma la chaktsal lo
Om, a tribute to her, who protects us against the eight fears

tashi palbarma la chaktsal lo
A tribute to the lady who shines with the splendor of auspiciousness

ngensong go gekma la chaktsal lo
A tribute to the one that closes the door to the lower vibrations

tori lam drenma la chaktsal lo
A tribute to the one that guides us on the way to the higher realms

taktu khye kyi dongdrok dze
You who has always watched me and has taken care of me,

dadung tukje kyab tu sol
I ask you to protect me now with your great compassion.

My other recommondation is as so often before, to work with the tranforming powers of the violet flame. Keep training your inner alchemist, and spend as much time as it takes with this inner flames, that burn for your own authentic life!!02Dear Ones, I hope sharing my experience and tools with you will be helpful for your inner process of finding the right path, decision by decision !! More than ever it is important for us to stand in clarity to our self-worth and the vibrations we have acchieved, so we can be of help for the whole of humanity and life on planet earth. Stay in touch with the earth, keep breathing deeply, make sure you feel it all – and than make a wise and authentic call!!
Blessings and Dividing Wisdom!

Edith

Our Psychic Abilities Have Increased – Creating A Healing Friendship With Trees

onnenby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
just a month ago, when we passed the powerful Pisces New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse, we collectively had the chance to open our physical channels and develop a deep inner connection with the elemental forces of nature. Just about a week ago, I talked about the fact that our psychic abilities have collectively increased, and that brings strength to this inner relationships. One of the realms we can exchange with, is the Kindom of the weeds, flowers, bushes and trees that are surrounding us. A conscious interaction between the Nature Kingdom and the human race, is as old as human life itself! Our pagan ancestors worshiped trees. In many traditions in Europe, trees are admired for their magical, healing and grounding powers.

A personal message to all my facebook friends!! FB is limiting the distribution of my posts daily more. If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!! Over time I might not be able to put in the FB time, if it does not lead to what it is about – SPREADING THE WORD ;-)!

It is known, that Plato and Aristotle received their deepest insights in the olive groves around Athens. Buddha found enlightenment beneath a bo tree, and Isaac Newton received his “gravity theory” while watching an apple fall from the tree, under which he was sitting.
Scientific research confirmed that simple being in a green environment reduces the human stress level and blood pressure, has a positive effect on mental illnesses, on depression, helps with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), concentration problems, increases your reaction time – as well as deeply nurtures body and soul. The sounds, smells, sights, the texture and the taste of the air tickle our senses, which leads to improved health and well-being.
So tree Hugging is not only for Hippies to the contrary, “let’s make it a fashion trend”!! Hugging a tree can boost our health and the happiness we feel about being alive, so don’t be shy!!
In order to create a new relationship with trees, the first step is to make sure you feel worthy to be their co-creative partner. Relax your mind and body, breath deeply and allow the subtle energies – that are their natural language of all existence – to create an energetic field for connection between you.
Trust and the trees will assist you to open your energy channels and come to inner calmness. This space of presence allows you to feel the energetic exchange. Just play with it! Confidence comes with practice!!m;kllHere is a short list of trees that are especially helpful to the human race, for our collective evolution process!

The excess to new dimensions from the BIRCH TREE:
Birch trees support us in our forgiveness process and awaken the energy of new beginnings inside of us. It helps us cleans from the impact of our past. Shamans, Druids and Celtics used the Birch wood tree to enter altered states of consciousness. It reminds us to live our life with purpose and master our personal energy field.

The energies of trust and faith from the CHERRY TREE:
Cherry trees whisper to us about the chance for a new awakening. They support us to remove all obstacles that are preventing our spiritual growth. It is the burning fire of the inner Phoenix, the rising from the ashes of the past. It stands for the cycles of re-birth, the self-creation of a new life after every mental death.

Access to universal energies from the ELM TREE:
Elm trees are channels for the higher vibrations of the divine. They help us get in touch with the invisible world behind the veil of human perception. For our personal soul path, they assist us in hearing our inner voice and to have faith in our intuition. On an energetic level the family collective of the Elm trees is stronger connected to each other, than any other tree species. A brotherhood of trees!

Harmony between heaven and earth from the HONEYSUCKLE TREE:
Honeysuckle is the perfect plant partner to empower the work of healer, light-worker and energy-worker. It awakens confidence for our creations, the use of psychic energies and the magnetic attraction required for manifestation on the material plane. It reminds us of our authentic personal power, our highest potential, the awakening to psychic abilities and the courage to follow our own beliefs.

A gateway between the worlds from the WISTERIA:
Wisteria provides us with a gateway between the human species and the divine realm. It is known as “the ecstasy of the poet”, as it helps us to awaken and draw in inspiration and good vibrations for divinely channeled creative process. The Wisteria flower serves us in the manifestation of our true self, as it activates the heart chakra and the throat chakra. On our path of illumination, it provides the needed spiritual influence to reach a higher state of consciousness.shaPower for your prayers from the BEECH TREE:
There is a legend reporting that Sanskrit, the most ancient language of prayer, has first been carved on a Beech bark. Therefor the power of the written word, spiritual wisdom, knowledge of the past and a love for literature are associated with this tree. It awakens tolerance and respect for all existence and helps with the alignment to the guidance of your higher self.

Balance between the female and the male forces from the MAPLE TREE:
Maple trees help strengthen our connection between Yin & Yang, the dance of the polarities, the electrical and the magnetic powers. They ground our psychic abilities and spiritual energies. Maple trees help women illuminate their inner fire, and supports men in the awakening of their feminine nurturing nature, their intuition and creativity.

Protection during inner transitions form the ALDER TREE:
The raven, a bird of great knowledge and perception, is associated with the Alder tree. The related element is water. The Alder reminds us by divine law, that everything is constantly in movement. So even when it seams like we are not moving forward at all, we do – only a bit slow. Patients is required now!

Alignment for your chakra centers from the LILAC:
The Lilac is the best partner to use in your meditating practice as it has the potential to connect us with our spirit guides. It attracts the help of protective spirits into our work and its healing power reminds us of the divine beauty within the individuality of all things. When used for aromatherapy, Lilac awakens mental clarity and freedom.

Regeneration and rejuvenation from the OLIVE TREE:
The Olive tree increases our sensitivity, our hope, our joy for life and our deepest longing for peace and harmonious relationships. It helps us develop the courage and honor of a spiritual warrior and is therefor associated with gods and goddesses like Pallas Athena, Poseidon and Zeus. Olive trees support our physical self-healing abilities and spiritual growth.jDear Ones, I wish you nurturing, healing experiences when you are getting in touch with your higher sensory abilities and the frequencies of the tree spirits!!! Remember the strongest connections can be achieved with the joyful, relaxed and lighthearted approach of a child!!! Have fun playing with our brothers and sisters from the Nature Kingdom!
Blessings and Nature Love!!

Why Human Beings Kiss in Romantic Relationships

jkby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
some of you might remember that over the last few month I mentioned the new paradigm of sexuality and romantic relationships, that is now arising in the world. The one thing that I found funny on this article, is that the author is mentioning the Egyptian tradition and how ancient Egyptian art portraits rather breathing than kissing. And that is one of the most beautiful tools of connection between the sexes, an exchange of conscious breathing. I hope you are having a good time with this lovely read!!
Love and Big Kiss!!
Edith

A new study finds that half of human cultures don’t practice romantic lip-on-lip kissing. Animals don’t tend to bother either. So how did it evolve? When you think about it, kissing is strange and a bit icky. You share saliva with someone, sometimes for a prolonged period of time. One kiss could pass on 80 million bacteria, not all of them good. Yet everyone surely remembers their first kiss, in all its embarrassing or delightful detail, and kissing continues to play a big role in new romances. At least, it does in some societies. People in western societies may assume that romantic kissing is a universal human behavior, but a new analysis suggests that less than half of all cultures actually do it. Kissing is also extremely rare in the animal kingdom. So what’s really behind this odd behavior? If it is useful, why don’t all animals do it – and all humans too? It turns out that the very fact that most animals don’t kiss helps explain why some do. Kissing could be quite a recent invention.
According to a new study of kissing preferences, which looked at 168 cultures from around the world, only 46% of cultures kiss in the romantic sense. The study overturns the belief that romantic kissing is a near-universal human behavior. Previous estimates had put the figure at 90%. The new study excluded parents kissing their children, and focused solely on romantic lip-on-lip action between couples. Many hunter-gatherer groups showed no evidence of kissing or desire to do so. Some even considered it revolting. The Mehinaku tribe in Brazil reportedly said it was “gross”. Humans lived in hunter-gatherer groups for most of our existence, until the invention of farming around 10,000 years ago. If modern hunter-gatherer groups do not practice romantic kissing, it is possible that our ancestors did not do so either. However we cannot be certain of this, as modern hunter-gatherer groups do not live in the same ways as the ancestral hunter-gatherers, because their societies have changed and adapted in the meantime.1439545532e88a1d79Regardless, the study overturns the belief that romantic kissing is a near-universal human behavior, says lead author William Jankowiak of the University of Nevada in Las Vegas. Instead it seems to be a product of western societies, passed on from one generation to the next, he says. There is some to back that up. Kissing as we do it today seems to be a fairly recent invention, says Rafael Wlodarski of the University of Oxford in the UK. He has trawled through records to find evidence of how kissing has changed. Is kissing something we do naturally? The oldest evidence of a kissing-type behavior comes from Hindu Vedic Sanskrit texts from over 3,500 years ago. Kissing was described as inhaling each others soul. In contrast, Egyptian hieroglyphics picture people close to each other rather than pressing their lips together.
So what is going on? Is kissing something we do naturally, but that some cultures have suppressed? Or is it something modern humans have invented? We can find some insight by looking at animals. Our closest relatives, chimpanzees and bonobos, do kiss. Primatologist Frans de Waal of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, has seen many instances of chimps kissing and hugging after conflict. As far as we know, other animals do not kiss at all. For chimpanzees, kissing is a form of reconciliation. It is more common among males than females. In other words, it is not a romantic behavior. Their cousins the bonobos kiss more often, and they often use tongues while doing so. That’s perhaps not surprising, because bonobos are highly sexual beings. When two humans meet, we might shake hands. Bonobos have sex: the so-called bonobo handshake. They also use sex for many other kinds of bonding. So their kisses are not particularly romantic, either. These two apes are exceptions. As far as we know, other animals do not kiss at all. They may nuzzle or touch their faces together, but even those that have lips don’t share saliva or purse and smack their lips together. They don’t need to.jbhTake wild boars. Males produce a pungent smell that females find extremely attractive. The key chemical is a pheromone called androstenone that triggers the females’ desire to mate. Animals often release these pheromones in their urine. From a female’s point of view this is a good thing, because males with the most androstonene are also the most fertile. Her sense of smell is so acute, she doesn’t need to get close enough to kiss the male. The same is true of many other mammals. For example, female hamsters emit a pheromone that gets males very excited. Mice follow similar chemical traces to help them find partners that are genetically different, minimizing the risk of accidental incest. “If there’s urine present in the environment they can assess compatibility through that.” The point is, animals do not need to get close to each other to smell out a good potential mate.
On the other hand, humans have an atrocious sense of smell, so we benefit from getting close. Smell isn’t the only cue we use to assess each others fitness, but studies have shown that it plays an important role in mate choice. Men also make a version of the pheromone that female boars find attractive. A study published in 1995 showed that women, just like mice, prefer the smell of men who are genetically different from them. This makes sense, as mating with someone with different genes is likely to produce healthy offspring. Kissing is a great way to get close enough to sniff out your partner’s genes. In 2013, Wlodarski examined kissing preferences in detail. He asked several hundred people what was most important when kissing someone. How they smelled featured highly, and the importance of smell increased when women were most fertile. It turns out that men also make a version of the pheromone that female boars find attractive. It is present in male sweat, and when women are exposed to it their arousal levels increase slightly. Pheromones are a big part of how mammals chose a mate, says Wlodarski, and we share some of them. “We’ve inherited all of our biology from mammals, we’ve just added extra things through evolutionary time.” jhbkYou could let go of kissing and start smelling people instead. On that view, kissing is just a culturally acceptable way to get close enough to another person to detect their pheromones. In some cultures, this sniffing behavior turned into physical lip contact. It’s hard to pinpoint when this happened, but both serve the same purpose, says Wlodarski. You’ll find just as good a partner when you smell them, and you won’t get half as many germs. Be prepared for some funny looks, though.

Things we better know about Karma

ka10-10by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
the last few days have brought profound shifting energy and massively high frequencies on the planet and the whole machinery of the divine support system seams to work overtime for us.  I hope your transitions have been smooth and your personal shifts and profound and fulfilling. Now as our few is a bit more clear and we feel entitled to more personal freedom, it is time to look into – what the world calls – KARMA. The return of our actions to our door! So what does Karma really mean? The expression Karma is a Sanskrit word for “action”. Which leads us to the hermetic law / divine law of Cause and Effect. Newton realized that within the blueprint of our universe, ‘every action must have a reaction’.
What ever we decide to think, speak or do in this world, initiates a force that will react accordingly to the energy we have send out. The law states that: Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happens according to the divine laws; Miracles, Kismet, Synchronicity and Good or Bad Luck are nothing, but names for this Law not recognized; there are endless planes of causation, but nothing escapes the Law. Important to know is, that this law vibrates in the physical human body by correspondence within the Spleen. The Spleen helps the body with cleansing the blood, which indicates that cleaning out karmic memory – has a healing impact on our original family tree. The Spleen is vital to the immune system of the human body and our overall feeling of well-being. And that is why in translation to the Humanity Laws for divinely inspired behavior, the law of Cause and Effect demand from us absolute honesty and integrity in thought, word and action. Nobody can escape the consequences of their actions, even that the consequences might not always have to be payed for in the same life cycle. karmAs we know, the law of Cause and Effect is a universal law, an energy pattern that demands how the flow goes, and neither the universe nor our soul have a feeling for human time, so things can play out over such a long period of time – we don’t see the anymore for what they are: simple answers from the universal to the energy field we once have send out to it. To be ignorant of the divine law is no excuse, as the universe is not rational in its respond to our existence, but creative, fluent and inspired.

1. THE LAW OF CAUSE AND EFFECT
In the Bible this divine law is mentioned as “As you sow, so shall you reap”. The law states that whatever quality of energy we send out into the Universe, will in a transformed, but equal form, come back to us.
2. THE LAW OF CREATION
Life does not “just happen” to us, it actually requires participation from us. As we are in essence one with the Universe and others, can whatever surrounds us also give us clues about our inner state of being, our level of development or our long forgotten dark spots. Being authentic and surrounding ourselves with people and vibrations we desire, creates more of what we truly need.
3. THE LAW OF HUMILITY
Humility sometimes means to bow our heads to things we can not change. As whatever we refuse to accept, is by this refusal trapped in a frozen state and impossible to change. Whatever we desire to transform, needs to be fully embraced and integrated just as the status quo truly is. If not the wheel of Karma keeps spinning and bringing similar situations to our door again.
4. THE LAW OF RESPONSIBILITY
This is a funny and a bit tricky one. On a spiritual level everything that happens to us, happens based on contracts for interaction with each other. These contracts are created in the other-world, long before we appeared here on planet earth. So if we seek to spiritually evolve, we must take responsibility for everything that appears in our life. At the same time on a human level, people can do us wrong – and it is important for our emotional and mental health, to leave the responsibility for their actions with them.karma15. THE LAW OF CHANGE
Another of the seven divine principles, the Law of Vibration states: “Nothing rests; everything moves all the time, everything vibrates.” From existence down to matter, all is in vibration, the higher the vibration, the higher the position in the scale. So on an energetic level everything changes all the time, while on a material level history repeats itself, until we hear the messages how we need to change our path.
6. THE LAW OF FOCUS
This law is relate to the energy field of the Ascended Master Lanto, and the alchemical process of drawing forth cosmic light and strength from the universal substance and bringing it into physical form. The more we keep the focus on our spiritual values, the more things, situation, people that resonate with the same frequency will appear.

7. THE LAW OF PATIENCE
Walking our authentic spiritual path, includes the realization, that the best thing we can do to co-operate with the universal forces, is doing what we’re suppose to be doing, and than show the patience to wait for the reward to come in on its own time. This is relate to the hermetic principle of Rhythms and Cycles which states: everything has its tides, everything happens in its time, and rhythm compensates – means, over time “what goes around, comes around”.

8. THE LAW OF PRESENTS
This is the easiest to explain and the hardest to execute. Being fully in the presents at any moment of our life, is the best way to prevent ourselves from creating further karma. If we regularly practice conscious breathing and are willing to transform in the violet flame what ever appears in our life, we don’t get overwhelmed by old thoughts, old patterns of behavior, old drama.
karI hope this is motivation for you to watch your steps, from the past to the moment, within the moment and, from the moment into the future. To put more awareness on the little things, that otherwise become our big obstacles along the way, and that you can initiate good karma for yourself – wherever you go!! May we all be blessed with helpful Karma, how ever it plays out in manifestation ;-)!!
Love and Blessings!!!
Edith

12:12:15 – Symbolism and Significance of the Number 12 in Human Life

indexby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
today’s 12/12/2015 Gateway is again a very special day full of shifting energies and new frequencies, that will anchor until the Solstice and the last days of the year. The number twelve is without a doubt one of the major keys to the mysteries of mankind’s existence on Planet Earth. It penetrates all aspects of life, all over the planet in tradition and religion. It is symbolic of the creation of the universe, as it represents the division of our godlike unity nature into twelve individual vibrations. Twelve different tones, that are showering us as sound,- and light pattern, known as the divine highways of sound and light.
The number twelve represents the qualities of personal perfection of governmental ruler and personal authority, it shows up in the Book of Revelation 22 times and is mentioned in 187 places in the Bible. It is an indicator of great understanding and wisdom, as it is considered to be the ancient number of completing our learning cycles. The twelve represents the manifestation of the Holy Trinity stabilized in the four corners of the horizon – 3 X 4.

Here are some of the many expressions we find in our collective worldwide symbolism and traditional understanding:
We have 12 month of the year, 12 hours of the day and 12 of the night, there are twelve sign constellations in the zodiac, the Buddhist tradition recognizes twelve causes of existence or Nidanas, there were 12 tribes in Israel symbolizing the completeness of the nation, Jacob had 12 sons, there are 12 Minor Prophets listed in the Old Testament, the Islamic religion recognizes twelve imams, ancient Egypt had 12 gods, there are twelve imposing rooms in the Scandinavian paradise, there are 12 historical books in the Bible, 12 breads have been broken and shared by Jesus Christ at the Last Supper, there are twelve administrators of Solomon, Jesus chose to travel with 12 apostles, the twelve works of Hercules, the oldest language “Sanskrit’ has twelve names for the Sun, the Chinese horoscope represents twelve animal powers, according to the Japanese cosmology the Creator is seated on twelve sacred cushions, Jesus first appears in public when he was 12years old, the 12 Strand DNA our physical bodies are converting to, the Life Cycle of Human Beings has twelve stages, so does the Light Body Process, and 12 times 12 makes 144 (000) the number sequence of the amount of Lightworker, expected to create a critical mass for the collective shift into the Golden Age of Aquarius.kkThe 12:12:2015 Gateway is a portal to freedom, to joyfully sharing and co-creation. As our Earth moves through the 12:12 frequency codes, her vibration will be altered so much, that some of us – who have been focused on mastery since a while – will have the chance for major leaps of Self-Mastery and Completion. The Violet Flame of Ascension will illuminate for a while the entire atmosphere of planet earth. The Ascended Masters have expressed that of the 144,000 Lightworker on earth, many will feel called to step up and become guardians and a caretaker of this planet. For all of us, there will be another quickening in spiritual growth and personal awakening into deep inner freedom, that humanity has yet to discover. The number 12 is related to the star sign Pisces and the Tarot card The Hanged Man. Which means it is supposed to tun our lives upside down. It is a warning of the necessity to be alert to every situation, to be aware of fake people and false flattery and those who try to gain from a situation, by having a hidden second agenda. Now is the time for spiritual seeker and skeptics worldwide, to realize there is a pattern in nature and the universe and to follow it without doubt or second guessing. Collectively our interest in Mathematics, Sacred Geometry, Numerology and Music will naturally grow, as the connectedness of all things gets more obvious than it has been in history for thousands of years.

The are three levels of self-initiation this amazing Portal is providing for us. Level 1 is called “The Gate” and is the initiation that will show us all of the demons (limitations) that our thoughts and emotions subconsciously create. Level 2 is called the “Red Feather of Courage.” In order to initiate yourself into this level, you must have courage and be willing to stand firm in your service to your inner divine and the collective divine plan. Expect to be dissed, cultured and ignored for your good deeds! As this is the essence of this particular initiation. And Level 3, this is know as the “Floor of Malkuth”, and it will serve us to lift our collective belief’s about death and aging into higher dimensions of understanding.awBeloved ones, I  hope this information brings you hope for the weeks to come. That it makes you brave, even fearless in approaching the changes that are now coming into our life. And make you capable of shifting and transforming your world, in the initiating fire of the violet flame and with your conscious breathing, till only pure divine essence is left. I am so looking forward to see it all unfold in front of our eyes, I am totally excited for all of us!! May you be blessed with faith and strong inner guidance!!
Love and Ascension Blessings!!!

14 Ways To Help Yourself Shift To Higher Frequencies

repo

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
this picture found me today and immediately I felt motivated to go into it and work out the steps listed in details ;-). Usually a strong sign that my spirit guides are telling me what to do and desire a particular piece of work from me. So here we are with the complexity of the bigger picture and all the lovely little details that make life in the Golden Age of Aquarius possible!

1.) Fluoride is one of the number one enemies of the awakening process in this moment of time. Why, because it blocks the Pineal Gland! The Pineal Gland also known as the ‘Seat of the Soul’ is the focal point of our spiritual guiding system, which makes us go beyond the five senses of rationality and become multi-sensory awareness. Governments all over the world thought it smart, to mix our drinking water with this poison and that way prevent the collective from awakening. Read here what the newest Harvard Study has to say about fluoride causing cognitive disorders, and the US Government admitting to overdosing their people since years!! Make sure you are drinking clear waters to actively support your Light Body Process!!

2.) Our body is the vessel for our soul to come thru and express our source into the world. If our nutrition is based on junk food and precooked foods with tons of chemicals and we don’t care to eat GMO food, we simple don’t give the body what it takes to bring forward the true spiritual being that you are. So go simple, go organic, go fresh!!! And – give your children healthy food!! It has to be organic not just natural, there is a labeling trick build in to the term natural!! By now we have studies that proof the physical change in the age of the puberty and more, thru the consume of GMO foods!!!

3.) During increasing energy waves or intense frequency shifts like we experienced on the 11th of November, it is especially important to keep the balance between action and resting time. This is true for body-mind and soul. All of them need time to integrate, when the energies are streaming in strongly. But especially the body needs rest. Listen to calming music, watch a relaxing movie or simple watch people passing by at your window; but make sure you spend some time without studies, active doing or conscious understanding. Active Resting is an important step in grounding the balance between the divine masculine and the divine feminine energies!!hqdefault4.) One of the most amazing traits of this time of collective human transformation is that we increasingly have the magnificent opportunity, to touch other creatures with our sensory self. We can be in communication, sharing and teaching with The Ascended Master, the Angelic Realms, the Animal Kingdom, Plant Healer and Healing Crystals, just as easily as talking to a stranger in a coffee shop. The only thing that separates this beings from us, is our own claim to be worthy enough for such a relationship. So go out there, make friends with a tree and let them teach you about the universes unconditional love.

5.) Chakras are the energy centers in our body in which energy flows through our subtle bodies. The word Chakra is a Sanskrit word, that literally means “wheel”, referring to their spiraling movement. Each Chakra is associated with a certain part of the body and a certain organ which it provides with the energy it needs to function. Additionally, just as every organ in the human body has its equivalent on the mental and spiritual level, so too every Chakra corresponds to a specific aspect of human behavior and development. To keep our inner energies clean is the base for a deep sensory connection with the outer world.

6.) As mentioned above, nature allows us easy excess to relaxation, fresh air and a feeling for the oneness in our human existence. People who spend time outdoors, or even just have access to windows looking out at trees, have been shown to have better health than those who do not. Trees are considered sacred in virtually every place where humans have settled. The concept of a Tree of Life, often symbolizing the connections between all life forms, is found in many religions and philosophies, dating back as early as ancient Egypt.

7.) Well-documented research shows there is a relationship between low vitamin D levels and poor health, such as frail bones, multiple sclerosis and prostate cancer. Our physical body needs vitamin D! And it is the sun that provides this Vitamin in the most natural form. Also, light that is hitting your skin and your eyes, helps reverse seasonal effective disorders – so think about finding a way to enjoy sunlight, especially now when the days are getting shorter and colder. Let the sunshine in, so you can shine your light back at it!!sandalwood-collage8.) Sandalwood is since prehistory a part of the religious and spiritual traditions of many countries of the world and has been effectively used in traditional medicine for thousands of years. It is part of medical systems such as Chinese medicine and the Indian healing science known as Ayurveda. It is considered beneficial for meditation as well as for calming and focusing the mind during a bath or relaxing time. The oil of Sandalwood is used to anoint deities, that is a reason why the fragrance also helps to remind human beings of the spiritual realms.

9.) Hematite – brings grounding and high energy connections simultaneously. This stone assists in grounding high level spiritual energy into the reality of our every day life.
Black Tourmaline – is one of the best crystals to be used for metaphysical purposes. It is powerful for healing, for psychic protection and spiritual purposes, and it will strengthen your immune system.
Rose Quartz – has the metaphysical properties to bring loving energy of the heart chakra & thymus into your complete system. It encourages forgiveness, helps you to let go of anger, resentment and jealousy.
Amethyst – is a crystal of selflessness, spiritual consciousness, balance, inner peace, transfiguration and transformation. Amethyst provided a connection to your Divine Higher Self and to guidance from the spiritual world.

10.) Practicing conscious breathing helps improve our well being on a physical, emotional and mental level. Becoming aware of the way we breathe can reconnect us to our inner place of peace, even in the most challenging situations of everyday life!! It is the most practical build in tool for your next conscious step in your personal evolution! So study your breath and body awareness, it will carry you far in your personal ascension process!!

11.) We all need to do so on emotional, mental and physical level; as well as through all layers of our individual spiral dance of creation. To shift our former reactions we need to be present in the moment, raise above lower old pattern of vibration and release ourselves from any karmic depths and energetic entanglements we still carry inside. The violet flame is your best partner for this task!!medi12.) It is as easy as shifting your awareness to a conscious state of meditation. Read here how 7 simple everyday life activities can turn into meditation!!

13.) We need to be silent inside to hear the gentle voices of our spirit guides. We need to know their language and understand who they are. Read here 7 signs that your spirit guides are present, general information about the Ascended Masters work with humanity and the angelic ways of playing with synchronicity and different several number frequencies.

14.) Friends, sharing is caring!!! It does not matter if your version is talking to your friends and family members – to let them know about your ups and downs with the energetic frequency shifts, if you feel called to write articles, or if you abundantly share information like mine with the world… important is that you bring yourself into the world and share your authentic status quo with others!!!!

Dear Friends, I hope my words serve you as motivation and encouragement on your path to enlightenment!! I wish you nurturing and healing experiences when getting in touch with your higher sensory abilities and your awareness for the ever shifting frequencies!!! May you create the most beautiful relationships with your guides and feel forever that you are taken care of! Please Note: The strongest connection can be achieved with the joyful, relaxed and lighthearted approach of a playful child!!!
Blessings and Oneness-feelings!!

New Relationships Are Emerging – In Friendship With A Tree!!

jby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
last week I talked about the amazing ability human beings have to connect and be in relationship with other dimensional realms. One of this realms is the Kingdom of Nature, the weeds, flowers, bushes and trees surrounding us. The conscious interaction between the Nature Kingdom and the human race, is as old as human life itself! Our pagan ancestors worshiped trees. In many traditions in Europe, trees are admired for their magical, healing and grounding powers.

It is known, that Plato and Aristotle received their deepest insights in the olive groves around Athens. Buddha found enlightenment beneath a bo tree, and Isaac Newton realized his “gravity theory” while watching an apple fall from the tree, under which he was sitting.
Scientific research confirmed that simple being in a green environment reduces the human stress level and blood pressure, has a positive effect on mental illnesses, on depression, helps with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), concentration problems, increases your reaction time – as well as deeply nurtures body and soul. The sounds, smells, sights, the texture and the taste of the air tickle our senses, which leads to improved health and well-being.
So tree Hugging is not only for Hippies to the contrary, “let’s make it a fashion trend”!! Hugging a tree can boost our health and the happiness we feel about being alive, so don’t be shy!!
In order to create a new relationship with trees, the first step is to make sure you feel worthy to be their co-creative partner. Relax your mind and body, breath deeply and allow the subtle energies – that are their natural language of all existence – to create an energetic field for connection between you.
Trust and the trees will assist you to open your energy channels and come to inner calmness. This space of presence allows you to feel the energetic exchange. Just play with it! Confidence comes with practice!!mHere is a short list of trees that are especially important for the human race, at this very important point of our collective evolution!

The excess to new dimensions from the BIRCH TREE:
Birch trees support us in our forgiveness process and awaken the energy of new beginnings inside of us. It helps us cleans from the impact of our past. Shamans, Druids and Celtics used the Birch wood tree to enter altered states of consciousness. It reminds us to live our life with purpose and master our personal energy field.

The energies of trust and faith from the CHERRY TREE:
Cherry trees whisper to us about the chance for a new awakening. They support us to remove all obstacles that are preventing our spiritual growth. It is the burning fire of the inner Phoenix, the rising from the ashes of the past. It stands for the cycles of re-birth, the self-creation of a new life after every mental death.

Access to universal energies from the ELM TREE:
Elm trees are channels for the higher vibrations of the divine. They help us get in touch with the invisible world behind the veil of human perception. For our personal soul path, they assist us in hearing our inner voice and to have faith in our intuition. On an energetic level the family collective of the Elm trees is stronger connected to each other, than any other tree species. A brotherhood of trees!

Harmony between heaven and earth from the HONEYSUCKLE TREE:
Honeysuckle is the perfect plant partner to empower the work of healer, light-worker and energy-worker. It awakens confidence for our creations, the use of psychic energies and the magnetic attraction required for manifestation on the material plane. It reminds us of our authentic personal power, our highest potential, the awakening to psychic abilities and the courage to follow our own beliefs.

A gateway between the worlds from the WISTERIA:
Wisteria provides us with a gateway between the human species and the divine realm. It is known as “the ecstasy of the poet”, as it helps us to awaken and draw in inspiration and good vibrations for divinely channeled creative process. The Wisteria flower serves us in the manifestation of our true self, as it activates the heart chakra and the throat chakra. On our path of illumination, it provides the needed spiritual influence to reach a higher state of consciousness.bodhitreegalleryPower for your prayers from the BEECH TREE:
There is a legend reporting that Sanskrit, the most ancient language of prayer, has first been carved on a Beech bark. Therefor the power of the written word, spiritual wisdom, knowledge of the past and a love for literature are associated with this tree. It awakens tolerance and respect for all existence and helps with the alignment to the guidance of your higher self.

Balance between the female and the male forces from the MAPLE TREE:
Maple trees help strengthen our connection between Yin & Yang, the dance of the polarities, the electrical and the magnetic powers. They ground our psychic abilities and spiritual energies. Maple trees help women illuminate their inner fire, and supports men in the awakening of their feminine nurturing nature, their intuition and creativity.

Protection during inner transitions form the ALDER TREE:
The raven, a bird of great knowledge and perception, is associated with the Alder tree. The related element is water. The Alder reminds us by divine law, that everything is constantly in movement. So even when it seams like we are not moving forward at all, we do – only a bit slow. Patients is required now!

Alignment for your chakra centers from the LILAC:
The Lilac is the best partner to use in your meditating practice as it has the potential to connect us with our spirit guides. It attracts the help of protective spirits into our work and its healing power reminds us of the divine beauty within the individuality of all things. When used for aromatherapy, Lilac awakens mental clarity and freedom.

Regeneration and rejuvenation from the OLIVE TREE:
The Olive tree increases our sensitivity, our hope, our joy for life and our deepest longing for peace and harmonious relationships. It helps us develop the courage and honor of a spiritual warrior and is therefor associated with gods and goddesses like Pallas Athena, Poseidon and Zeus. Olive trees support our physical self-healing abilities and spiritual growth.

I wish you nurturing, healing experiences when you are getting in touch with your higher sensory abilities and the frequencies of the tree spirits!!! Note: The strongest connection can be achieved with the joyful, relaxed and lighthearted approach of a child!!!
Have fun playing with our brothers and sisters from the Nature realm!
Blessings and Oneness-feelings!!

9 Animal Species That Use Psychoactive Substances In The Wild

1524815_185511901649386_324707819_nDear Friends,
from day to day now, we are tapping deeper into the awareness of our shared reality with the Animal Kingdom. More and more people receive messages by the other world, transported by animal spirits. Reading this article I can’t help but ask myself if this facts might not be helpful for the human race, when we harmonize our energy field with the Animal Kingdom.
Many of the below mentioned animals are well known helper for us, in indigenous traditions identified as Power animals. I like to think, that the Dolphin in it’s  “trance-like state” is able to tap into the energetic field of humanity to charge us with the amazing qualities their lives represent to us. Same for the Jaguars – who are royal animals to many cultures, the Horse – part of Native American inheritance, the Reindeer the same 
for the Nordic countries and Pics  , part of cultural believes worldwide.
So couldn’t it be possible that animals in altered states of awareness also use the same highways of information than humans do and therefor are channeling their characteristics, love and support to us, when consuming psychoactive substances!?? What Do you think? Anybody who can share such an experience?

Wishing you loving and nurturing connections with the animal world!!
Edith

2401829514by Gonzo Nieto
For millennia, our ancestors have enjoyed, and even regarded as sacred, a variety of mind-altering substances. Cultural artifacts, visionary artwork and rituals in many indigenous cultures and past civilizations point to this fact. As Ethan Nadelmann remarked in a recent TED talk, “Our desire to alter our consciousness may be as fundamental as our desires for food, companionship, and sex.”

While Homo sapien consumption for consciousness-expanding purposes is well-documented throughout anthropology and history, ample evidence suggests we are not the only creatures who seek mind-altering plants and substances in their environment.
Indeed, plenty of our animal friends enjoy mind-altering substances: Some eat fermented fruits, psychoactive mushrooms, and opium poppies. Others rub themselves with crushed ants or angry millipedes.
The initial attraction to these substances might not be just to get high, but for nutritional or protective purposes. For example, fermenting fruits might be attractive to certain species because the process signifies the fruit is at its highest caloric value, and is also going to rot soon. In other cases, naturally occurring intoxicants might serve some curative function or contain nutrients that are otherwise scarce in the environment.
But, there’s compelling evidence to suggest that altering one’s state of mind for the simple purposes of experiencing that altered state is a natural drive common to many inhabitants of the animal kingdom. See for yourself.

1. Lemurs and capuchin monkeys get high off of millipedes.

The idea that some animals get high off other animals is an intriguing one, and lemurs and capuchin monkeys seem to be doing just this with poisonous millipedes. The millipedes store toxic chemicals, including cyanide, which they release in defense when provoked. The primates pick up and agitate millipedes and then rub them all over their bodies, coating themselves in the defensive secretions — here’s a BBC documentary clip on this. As mentioned in the video, the primary reason for this seem to be protection against a variety of parasites, but the monkeys and lemurs also seem to enjoy a thoroughly blissful intoxication as a result. The monkeys, being more social animals, have been seen passing a millipede around, reminiscent of a group of people passing around a joint.

images (1)2. Dolphins enjoy the psychoactive effects of poisonous pufferfish.

Similar to the lemurs and monkeys above, dolphins have been observed hanging out in groups of four to seven, passing around an angry pufferfish. The pufferfish releases an extremely potent poison called tetrodotoxin which is more deadly than nerve gas or the venom of the black widow spider, and thus is one of the most toxic compounds known to man. Evolutionary biologist Dr. Christie Wilcox is skeptical of the theory that dolphins are intentionally doing this for the purpose of intoxication and pleasure, but there is some compelling evidence to the contrary. For example, the BBC documentary Spy in the Pod showed dolphins passing around a pufferfish and then floating near the surface of the water, apparently in a “trance-like state.”

3. Many species of birds do what is called “anting.”

A seemingly odd behavior, ravens, myna birds, jays, magpies, and other birds sometimes either rub themselves with ants or get intimate with anthills to coat themselves in ants (see a jay do it here). This is called anting, and its purpose remains unclear.
An article published in the journal of the American Ornithologist’s Union in 1974 reviewed the possible explanations for anting. One theory is that the birds are coating themselves with the ant’s defensive chemical secretions, thus applying a protective coating much like when we apply insect repellent.
Another possibility is that the secretions serve to soothe the bird’s body during molting season. Others point to the curious movement sometimes observed during anting (described by one ecologist as “a curious dance that involved flopping around on the grass with its wings outstretched and its beak open”) as proof of an intoxicated state, suggesting that anting is pleasurable for the birds.
Perhaps the answer is a combination of these theories. Similar to how humans use cannabis, anting may at times serve a protective or curative purpose, while at other times be done mainly for the enjoyment of the altered state it brings about.

4. Many animals seek out fermented fruits in the wild.

It has been widely reported that elephants get themselves drunk from the marula tree’s fermented fruit. Anecdotal reports of these stumbling elephants go back over a century, and the phenomenon was portrayed in the film Animals are Beautiful People by James Uys (Uys also made The Gods Must Be Crazy). The idea is that the fallen fruit ferments either on the ground before being eaten, or in the elephant’s digestive system, yielding one drunk pachyderm.
As fun as it is to think about inebriated elephants, this theory has been debunked by an article published in the Physiological and Biochemical Zoology journal in 2006, and it’s been suggested that the clips shown in the above video were staged by artificially sedating the elephants. For starters, elephants don’t eat the rotten fruit from the ground, instead preferring to ram the tree trunk to shake loose the ripe fruit, even when there’s fruit on the ground available. Another hypothesis, which suggests that the fruit ferments in the digestive system, is also out of the question; the fruits are not in the digestive system long enough for that to happen, and the sugars needed for fermentation are metabolized by the elephant before they can be converted to alcohol by yeast. And, in order to get drunk an elephant would need to eat 1,400 fully fermented marula fruits — an unlikely feat. Despite its improbability, the myth, and convincing videos of seemingly drunk elephants, persist.

images (2)However, there have been confirmed reports of other animals that regularly consume fermented fruit. The pen-tailed treeshrew, native to Thailand and Malaysia, is known to regularly snack on the nectar of the bertam palm tree, sharing this indulgence with the slow loris and several other mammals native to that area, according to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science in 2008. The palm’s flower bud houses a species of yeast that ferments the nectar, bringing it to a beer-like alcohol content of up to 3.8%. It is estimated that, in one night, the treeshrew can consume the equivalent of nine alcoholic beverages. However, they show no overt signs of intoxication because their bodies use more efficient ways of breaking down alcohol than we do, preventing the accumulation of alcohol necessary for getting drunk. Similarly, bats regularly encounter and consume fermented fruits in the wild. Like the treeshrew, they show no signs of intoxication. When scientists gave bats an alcohol solution and made them fly an obstacle course, they performed no worse than their sober counterparts.

Monkeys also have a taste for alcohol — not only do they seek out fermented fruits, but they also like to steal alcoholic drinks from tourists. And their taste for alcohol has allowed for some pretty interesting research on their drinking habits. Vervet monkeys that were given access to alcohol in a social setting show some striking parallels to the drinking patterns of humans.
The monkeys could be grouped into social drinkers, which prefer sweetened drinks and only drink in the company of others; regular drinkers, which prefer their drinks straight, make good leaders, and are socially dominant; binge drinkers, which are aggressive and can drink themselves to death within months if given unrestricted access to alcohol; and abstainers. What’s more, not only the types of drinkers similar to humans, but the proportions of each of these behavior patterns in the monkeys studied reflects those found in human populations. These findings raise the possibility that our patterns of drug consumption are more fundamental aspects of our animal nature than we might think.

wacky-horse-570x3675. Horses seek out locoweed for its intoxicating effects.

Locoweed refers to any plant that produces the chemical swainsonine. It is thought that horses are initially attracted to these plants because they remain green longer than other plants once winter comes around. However, they begin to seek it out for its intoxicating effects, increasing their use over time. Farmers do their best to eliminate locoweed from their properties, as its frequent consumption is damaging to the animal’s health. A study published in the Journal of Animal Science in 2003 found that horses that ate the weed for two weeks developed significant weight loss and signs of depression. Swainsonine interferes with a metabolic enzyme, resulting in the buildup of the simple sugar mannose in neural cells. If severe, this buildup can lead to heart problems, reproductive difficulties, and neurological damage to the horses.

6. Jaguars eat the ayahuasca vine.

According to this Discovery article, humans aren’t the only ones that use Banisteriopsis caapi (one of the two plants used to make ayahuasca) as a psychoactive. This Amazonian jungle vine contains several compounds called beta-carbolines that potentiate the DMT in the ayahuasca brew by inhibiting bodily enzymes that would otherwise be responsible for breaking down the DMT. It turns out that jaguars also seek out the leaves of this jungle vine.
Higher doses of harmala alkaloids often result in vomiting and diarrhea characteristic of ayahuasca, so one possibility is that they consume the vine to purge the intestinal tract of possible parasites; a study of the Amazonian Piaroa tribe published in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs suggests that eating the leaves grants the jaguar heightened sensory perception, helping them hunt. However, the jaguars are also known to roll around in ecstasy after consuming the vine, suggesting to some that its use is primarily for pleasure. See it for yourself here.

images7. Reindeer eat the psychoactive Amanita muscaria mushrooms.

These red-and-white psychedelic mushrooms, native to temperate and boreal regions in the Northern Hemisphere and thought to be the sacrament referred to as Soma in one of Hinduism’s foundational texts, are also a favorite snack of reindeer. As Gordon Wasson relates in his book Soma: Divine Mushroom of Immortality, reindeer are reported to prance about after eating the fungi — which are commonly referred to as “fly agaric” — apparently reveling in their intoxicated state. Reindeer are also an integral part of the history of Amanita use by indigenous peoples of Northern Europe and Siberia. As Reset.me recently reported, a 2009 BBC video explains how the Sami people indigenous to the Arctic Circle have long used fly agaric mushrooms in their visionary rituals. It is theorized that the connection between reindeer, Sami and fly agaric mushrooms is the basis for the legend of Santa’s flying reindeer.

Not only did these people herd reindeer, the animal being their main source of food and clothing, but they also got high with a little help from their reindeer friends. The effects of Amanita muscaria are characterized by a certain unpredictability, as their ingestion can bring about a range of thoroughly unpleasant side-effects and physical symptoms. In time, it was discovered that muscimol, the active compound of the mushrooms, is not processed by the body but is instead flushed out through urination while the more toxic compounds responsible for the body load are broken down. This led to the practice in some places of drinking the psychoactive urine of the shaman who had eaten, and thus purified, the mushroom. Some shamans even drank the urine of reindeer that had eaten the mushrooms. It turns out that the reindeer, intelligent in their own right, also realized that they could get high from the urine of a human that had consumed the mushroom, leading to what Cracked humorously referred to as “The Circle of Piss.”

8. Wallabies ravage opium poppy fields.

Tasmania is a leading producer of opium poppies for the pharmaceutical industry, supplying the morphine necessary for the production of painkillers. There’s only one problem: wallabies love the poppies. They’ll raid a field, gorge themselves on poppies, and crush the plantations in the process. As reported by BBC in 2009, the issue of stoned wallabies was even discussed at a parliamentary hearing on the security of opium crops in Tasmania, with the country’s attorney general stating that wallabies were “entering poppy fields, getting high as a kite, and going around in circles.”

download9. Pigs dig up truffles containing cannabinoids.

Black truffles, a gourmet delicacy for us humans, are also a sought-after snack for pigs. These mushrooms grow exclusively below ground and are identified by pigs by their aroma, said to be reminiscent of wet earth, dried fruit, and cacao.  A recent article in the journal Phytochemistry revealed that the black truffle (Tuber melanosporum) contains the cannabinoid anandamide, a compound structurally related to THC that is also found endogenously in the human body and is a key component of the body’s endocannabinoid system. Anandamide derives its name from the Sanskrit word ananda, meaning “bliss.” Researchers suggest that the anandamide in black truffles might be “an ancient attractant to truffle eaters that are well-equipped with with endocannabinoid receptors,” indirectly suggesting that humans might be drawn to truffles for the same reason.
