Virgo Full Moon – Work with Your Passion

mmDear Friends,
the energies of the last few days have been crazy transforming and pushed us collectively one more time toward the aches of our extension span. This field will keep increasing at least until we face the Virgo Full Moon peeking on February 22nd.
The high frequencies will keep shifting our perspective, till again we are as human collective a step closer to the frequency field of the Golden Age of Aquarius. I hope you are navigating the constant shifts gracefully, are committed to another breakthrough on your personal awakening path, and guided thru every step on your way!!
Love and Full Moon Blessings!!

There is a Virgo Full Moon on February 22. The Sun and Neptune are coupled in Pisces. They are opposing the Moon in Virgo. This Moon empowers you to keep your feet on the ground while you reach for the stars. You are being asked to balance your heart—Pisces with your head—Virgo. You are to fulfill your duties and responsibilities with the need to dream and create. The veil is lifting. The spirit world is becoming more physical each day. You are increasing in light. You are raising your vibration. This brings heaven to earth. You are a great spiritual being. You are powerful. Use your power to create the life you want. Let go of what no longer serves you. Take charge of your life. Keep Looking up!,Neptune represents your highest ideals. Neptune reveals your ideal work and ideal relationship. Neptune says if you can visualize it. You can create it. Neptune represents levels of God-consciousness that go beyond your human mind. That is why Neptune can be so confounding. Dreams feel real. Reality feels like a dream. Neptune reminds you that life is but a dream. Balance your need to dream with your duties. You want to find the middle ground in your daily responsibilities, with your need to dream and create.
The Pisces Sun is coupled with Neptune. You may find that your relationships are confusing. You may be unclear about your own needs. Neptune is casting spells. See people for who they are and not who you want them to be. Say what you mean. Mean what you say. If something seems too good to be true, it may be a fantasy. Take life with a grain of salt. This is not a good time to negotiate or make a contractual agreement. Hang loose. Make no judgments. Wait until March for that is when your clarity returns. Haste makes waste. Your patience will be rewarded.
You are taking care of business at the Virgo Full Moon. Each individual has a unique soul purpose. Virgo rules your service in the world. It rules your work and health habits. Virgo is grounded and practical. These are essential qualities to reach your goals. In today’s climate, it is not easy to make your dreams come true. The Leo Full Moon was the time to think big. Dream big. Now, in Virgo, you are to focus on the details and realities of life. Ambition is overrated. Passion is much healthier. Replace ambition with your passion.
What gives you passion?
What is your soul purpose?
What is your service in the world?
Your wealth is in your health. The longer I live the more this truth becomes self-evident. If you want a lot from your body, you have to give your body a lot. You can use the Extreme-Self Care Program to improve your health. Your body deserves the best food and vitamins. Exercise and rest are required to live your best life. Love your body. Give it what it needs and wants. The body is the messenger. What is your body telling you? Get your needs met and you will be needless. You are no longer chasing your needs. You can focus on what you love and value. This empowers you to live your Best Life.knkThe Virgo Full Moon message is – work with your passion. Do what gives you passion. Follow your passion. Work at your skills. Improve your gifts. Your heart and head need to work as one. This is an excellent time to do your house cleaning in mind, body and spirit. Get organized. Set your intention for what you want to create this year. Stay out of negative thinking. Instead, ask, “What supports my balance?” Do not project out into the future. You are not there yet. You can scare yourself with the “What if’s.” Stay present. The past is history. The future is a mystery. The present is the gift. Your power and effectiveness are in the now. Virgo is the powerful and effective human being. You were born perfect. You were born from Love. Your perfection lies within your imperfection. Be Blessed. Be safe. Be well. You are loved. All Are One.

“Many think success means getting everything I want. And we say, that’s what dead is, and there is no such thing as that kind of dead. Success is not being done; not being complete. Success is still dreaming and feeling positive in the unfolding.”
— Abraham

Faces of the New Relationship Paradigms – A Polyamorist View of Monogamy

kDear Friends,
if you follow my posts regularly you might remember how often I spoke about the changes in the new relationship paradigms we are creating right now. I shared how we can create first the clarity and authenticity it takes to attract the right fit, and what role the personal development of emotional intelligence has in this amazing time of evolution for humanity. Time for each of us to be aware of our core values and the personally “right way” of sharing our love and sexual energy with others. In this article by Michael McDonald about his experience with monogamy and polyamory relationships, we can gain insides of the different dynamics involved. After all it is not about one “being better” or “more right” than the other, but a question of “what takes you into
the Golden Age of Aquarius on planet earth”! I hope you will be courageous in finding your inner truth!!
Love, Blessings and Loving Relationships!!!

A personal message to all my facebook friends!! FB is consciously limiting the distribution of my articles. In case this restrictions keep going, only a very small amount of people on FB will be able to see my posts!! In case you enjoy my work and are used to find my articles on that medium, please sign up on my newsletter here. Over time I will not be able to invest the FB time, if it does not lead to what it is about – SPREADING THE WORD ;-)!

As a polyamorous person, I have great respect for the monogamous, for their depth of commitment, for the work and growth and courage necessary to pull off a conscious decision to remain monogamous. As a formerly monogamous person, I have great respect for the polyamorous, for their excellent communication skills and ability to transcend cultural norms. Navigating multiple romantic and sexual relationships tends to bring up more of their “stuff,” faster, necessitating the need to address feelings like jealousy.
The polyamorous work hard to foster the opposite of jealousy: compersion (the warm enjoyment of your lover’s happiness with another lover). Arguably, polyamory requires a lot more “work” than monogamy. It’s logistically more challenging managing multiple relationships—there are  only so many hours in a week. With more people, there are more emotions, more stories and needs and personalities to address, so there is more learning and personal development required.
But if monogamy is so much simpler than polyamory, why does it feel like so much work? Shouldn’t one relationship be easier than two or more? In my experience, monogamy is hard in a way that polyamory is easy. Contemplating this several years ago, everything clicked into place for me. I had an aha moment, and the evolutionary ladder of polyamory and monogamy suddenly made sense to me: Monogamy is more advanced than polyamory.a2Now, before the polyamory camp gets offended and the monogamy camp gets righteous, I’m about to reverse the offense: Monogamy is more advanced than polyamory, because monogamy is less natural than polyamory.
Nature, as I’m using the word here, is what happens of its own accord. Our human nature is what happens when we are connected with our inherent well-being, free of habitual patterns, emotional wounds, limiting beliefs, societal conditioning, and oppression. Obviously none of us are living 100 percent within our nature, but the more we see it, the easier it is to gravitate back toward it. Secure attachment is natural. Anxious and avoidant attachment is unnatural.
Having a growth mindset, acknowledging that we are ever-evolving and that our personality and capacities are not fixed, is natural. Having a fixed mindset of “That’s just the way I am” is unnatural. And while secure attachment between two people is very natural, the assumed exclusivity and the duration of monogamy are unnatural, a purely human creation that requires the restraint of our nature. If monogamy were natural, an expression of our inherent well-being, it wouldn’t require so much willpower. It wouldn’t require a commitment. Cheating and divorce wouldn’t be as common, and staying committed would be just as easy as when you first fell in love.
Monogamy is normal, but not natural. It is the cultural norm, with centuries of assumptions and confirmation bias backing it up, and it may seem like sacrilege to say that it is unnatural, but then again it was once sacrilege to say that the earth revolved around the sun instead of the other way around.This doesn’t mean that humans cannot be or should not be monogamous, because: Humans are not limited by their nature.We, with our potential access to greater consciousness, self-reflection and will, are able to adapt, abstract, resist, and reprogram our nature. As humans, it is our nature to embrace our nature, and also to rise above it. Not to leave it behind, but to both transcend and include it. a1Monogamy is an advanced form of relating that requires us to transcend what comes naturally to us in relationship. Monogamy is like putting a man on the moon: It is something rare and magical. It’s not something that happens of its own accord. It requires a great deal of courage and support to pull it off—and it can be worth it if you treat it with the proper respect. So then, if monogamy is so advanced, why is everyone doing it? Why does it seem easier than polyamory?
Because there are two kinds of monogamy. What I’ve been pointing to is what is conscious monogamy, but most monogamous relationships are stuck in unconscious monogamy. How most people practice monogamy is a form of anxious attachment, using monogamy to “fix” their fears, to “get” love and support from the outside because they don’t think they are whole on the inside. Unconscious monogamy is based on expectations instead of agreements. It lacks the distinctions and positivity and naturalness of polyamory. It is focused on security instead of possibility. Conscious monogamy is where both the natural and the unnatural aspects of monogamy are embraced. Conscious monogamy is a consciously chosen and co-created relationship structure, a container, to encourage more personal and relational growth. It’s turning up the heat on evolution. Conscious monogamy is a long-term transformational workshop.
If I had the power to reach into culture and rearrange what and how people learn about relationships, I would be encouraging polyamory as the norm, and monogamy as the advanced, only meant for the most experienced. There should be books and workshops and university classes about how monogamy works, building upon the principles learned in polyamory. Each monogamous relationship would be a uniquely designed and ever-evolving relationship, made up of consciously chosen agreements, and an acknowledgment of its challenges. Monogamy should be reserved for the experts.llSource: Together Magazine

Leo Full Moon And Mercury Goes Direct

kDear Friends,
I highly recommend you take some time tomorrow and let yourself be papered!! Right after the 5 planet stellar alignment of yesterday (Venus, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn!!) we are hitting the peek energy of this January Full Moon in Leo. Many of us are still processing the intense effects the resent magical stellar and intergalactic events had on our system, and staying grounded with our energies will be very important over the coming days. To spend some relaxed family time in nature and do a light workout (simply kick some balls with your children!), might be just the right thing to do.
Also think of discovering / renewing / actively continuing your love-relationship with the powerful alchemy of your own breath, and let the waves of light wash away the past!! I hope you are all doing well and feel loved held and guided in this magical dance of constant transformation, we call life. The divine forces are on our side and support us with full power on our collective journey into the Golden Age of Aquarius. I hope you enjoy and use this amazing new energies that the Full Moon is providing to bring forward you true colors and pure light!
Loving Star Light and Blessings
Edith

There is a Leo Full Moon on January 23. The best part of Leo is the inner child. You are to nourish and protect your childlike innocence. You are to be open to new ideas and fresh perspectives. Be curious about life. Be engaged in the magic of the moment. Be in your heart. Let go of the need to criticize and judge. This will kill your creativity. Instead, allow yourself to make mistakes. It is the only way to learn what works and what does not work for you. The magic word is “try.” Try something different. Keep an open mind and heart. Nourish your gifts. Gifts + Passion + Values = Calling.
What does your heart desire?
What are your gifts?
What have you come to be?
What talents have you come to share?
What is your calling?aLeo represents the creative individual. Aquarius is the power of the whole. There is strength in collaboration. Aquarius teaches us to transcend tribal limitations. You are to go beyond race, gender, age or country. All Are One. The sum (Aquarius) is equal to all of its parts (Leo). Unity builds community. When you join forces with like-minded people, you will be unstoppable. You matter. You count. You have an important role to play. What is your destiny? “Many think success means getting everything I want. And we say, that’s what dead is, and there is no such thing as that kind of dead. Success is not being done; not being complete. Success is still dreaming and feeling positive in the unfolding.” — Abraham
Full Moons are oppositions. On one side, you have the Sun and Pallas Athena in Aquarius. Pallas is the Goddess of Truth and Wisdom. On the other, you have a young Leo Moon. Shouting, “Who wants to play?” Aquarius is an intellectual and determined air sign. Aquarius teaches you about the power of knowledge, facts and reason. Leo is a fire sign. Leo rules leadership, creativity and love. Leo is passion. Aquarius is objectivity. The cosmic message is to balance your heart with your head. Find the middle ground in your relationships. Work to create the win/win with people. Live from your heart. And, be practical in your approach with your dreams and goals. There are many kinds of love. Romantic love is but one expression. Self/Soul love is the foundation to a healthy and happy life. You were born complete. You were born perfect. What you need is inside of you. Loneliness is a disconnect from your own soul (inner child). The word alone means All One. Love you more than the need for a relationship. Love you if you want another to love you. Love you. Make relationship a want not a need. You need food, water and sleep. These are real needs. Relationship is a want. You want it, if, the union adds value to your life. You want relationship, if the person makes your life better. You receive.
What is true for you?
What do you love and value?
Is your heart in the work you are doing?
Is your heart in the relationship?
Are you living the life that you have dreamed?bThe Law of Attraction rules the universe. That, which is within you, is what you draw to you. Change on the inside first. Then the outside will reflect what you want. Change yourself. Be the soul mate to you that you want in your life. In this way, you will attract one who is healthy and whole. Your soul mate will arrive when you are ready. Make the space for a partner if this is what you desire. Act as if, s/he is already here. Give to you the love you want from another. The Leo Full Moon is saying, “Don’t wait to celebrate. Live as if you have what you want.” Then you will be a match in vibration for your heart’s desire. Be love. Be joy. Shine your light. This is very attractive. There are 100 Ways to make you irresistible to the right people and opportunities. Use The Irresistible Attraction Program. Make it happen.
Leo is about who you really are. Your heart. Your essence. Your Inner Child. Purity. Living your life from your creative self-expression. Embracing your unique Self. Aquarius is community. Leo is the creative individual. Aquarius is the power of the whole. There is strength in collaboration. There is strength in numbers. Aquarius teaches us to transcend tribal limitations. You are to go beyond race, gender, age or country. The sum (Aquarius) is equal to all of its parts (Leo). Unity builds community. When you join forces with like-minded people, you will be unstoppable. You matter. You count. You have an important role to play. What is your calling? Now is the time to use your gifts to create a better world. Why are you here at the turning of the ages? Mercury will couple with Pluto at the time of the Full Moon and on January 29. This energy is intense and penetrating. Watch out for mental obsession. Worry is focusing on what you do not want. Wherever your mind goes energy follows. Focus on what you want, not on what you do not. You can solve any mystery or puzzle. You can get to the heart of the matter quickly. Truth may be revealed. On the other hand, be careful. The waters could get rough. It is going to be intense. It could be challenging at times. Some people may be aggressive. Take good care of you. aaMars is the planet of action and desire. He is in Scorpio. Mars is challenging both lights (the Sun and the Moon.) On the one hand, this empowers you to complete your creative endeavors. Watch out for losing your temper. Conversations can erupt into disagreements. This energy can make you irritable. Mars creates sexual tension. Make love not war. Channel your energy into physical activity. If you notice your anger rising, count to ten. This is temporary. The Moon harmonizes with Saturn later that day and then Uranus. Do something new and creative. Build up your strength. Practice patience. Meditate. The Leo Full Moon message is follow your heart’s desire. Play. Let your inner child soar. Fall in love with life. Nurture your gifts. Gifts + Passion + Values = Calling. You end the month with Mercury Direct! This is good news. This is your green light from the universe. You can move ahead with your plans. The Aquarius New Moon on February 8 will be a great time to start a new job or project. Begin a new love affair. Be bold. Be brave. Be Blessed. Be safe. Be well. You are loved. All Are One.

“Let your light shine for your soul is merry and bright. As you share you with this world,
all is better for it.” —Ivo/Lisa Dorr

The Spiritual Effects Of The Planetary Alignment January 20th

aaby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
we just discussed the other day the many side effects of the high frequencies that are transmitted to us right now by heavens above, and already we are engaging with the next impact created by five visible planets that will appear simultaneously aligned before dawn tomorrow, January 20th 2016. And we are talking about the powerful combination of Venus (our planetary impact for unconditional love and money), Saturn (representative of the law of cause end effect, planet of karma), Mars (planet of passion and war), Jupiter (planet of good fortune) and Mercury ( planet of communication interplanetary and external)!!!

Knowing all that and putting it in perspective to the resent transformation process we collectively have been engaged in, you can imagine that this energetic alignment can turn into an incredible blessing, or a massive burden – totally depending on where the human individual is standing in their personal development. When you remember my post from last month, that our first chakra, the collective root chakra, has been cleansed and transformed, well we will see the first glimpses of the outcome this changes will bring, during the impact of this cosmic event.
The first chakra, base or root chakra, as it is also called, carries the vibrations of our most earth-centered, most physical energies. It stands for our inherited belief systems, our family tree, our passion to be a conscious part of the spiral dance of creation, our personal survival, our beliefs and fears around money, our authentic needs when it comes to possessions, and our capacity to life as spirit beings fully present in our physical appearance – the body. In the Zodiac it belongs to the signs Capricorn, Virgo and Taurus, the earth signs!!! Please also take in contemplation that this five powerful, leading planets are simultaneously visible on that night, for the first time since 2005, why now if not to support us in the next collective mega jump to higher consciousness??aOver all this amazing stellar event gives all the people who are ready to drop what ever happened in their past and come to a place of inner peace and forgiveness, for all they have been part of, to complete their cycle of karma and step into the self-empowered position of a human co-creator in harmony with the divine plan for the Golden Age of Aquarius. A healthy root chakra connects us with our pure life force, with physical vitality, to our core family – in a healthy way , the society we live in and the global community we all are part of. Unfortunately for the ones who are not ready to let go of themes like war, greed, jealousy, territorial behavior and violence, the issues of survival, emotional dysfunction, high levels of internal stress, increased anxiety, inner restlessness and a tendency to violent outbursts can appear.

Helpful questions to ask ourselves today are:
*) What kind of belief system did I inherit or learn from my family? Does that fit my dreams and soul desires??
*) Is there anything unfinished emotionally or energetically, between me and my parents or other people from my family tree, that I feel capable of forgiving NOW?
*) What limiting beliefs did I learn about personal survival, territory and money?
*) How clear are my personal boundaries when it comes to sexuality, my money, emotions,…
*) Could it be easier for me to bond with others and feel connection?
*) Am I about to create sickness for myself, by continuing self-harming behavior?

And as they are corresponding with our root ckakra, you also might encounter health problems like joint pain, lower backache, elimination problems, constipation, and poor immune system function, over the coming few days. Watch your symptoms closely and us the internet to gather information about the spiritual meaning of your issues!!a1Dear Friends, I hope that this information will help you to navigate the ruff patches along the road of our immensely quick developing collective awakening process!! Hope you are still well connected with your conscious breathing techniques and find stability and safety in the guidance of your own soul’s song. Keep burning the past in your inner flame of passion, and celebrate the magic of BEING ALIVE!!
Blessings and Love!  Edith

Within The New Paradigm – Creating A Healthy Enlightened Sexual Relationship

aa
Dear Friends,
about two weeks ago, I shared with you details about the collective cleansing of the first chakra, that took place for us between the last New Moon and the Cancer Full Moon on Christmas Eve. By now, the first insides and effects have arrived on planet earth and, as it had to be expected, one of the collective desires driving us now, is to develop the new sexual relationship paradigm for the Golden Age of Aquarius. Many people feel the need now, to evaluate the personal expression of their sexuality and other physical desires. Looks like more and more people follow their desire, to be an active part in the creation of the divines plan bigger picture. So I found it pleasing, inspiring and perfectly fitting to the changes we are undergoing now, to share this beautiful piece with you.
Enjoy and give it a try yourself!!

From the beginning of mankind, sex has been the most natural way to discover meditation. The endorphin’s released after orgasm instantly send you into a euphoric state of bliss where the mind is no longer achieving, scheming or controlling to demand that the ego meets its goals. Through this orgasmic release a deep state of relaxation is experienced where you find a true feeling of inner peace. The 3 Sacred Sex Secrets are an invitation to expand your mind and liberate your soul from our society’s sexual suppression. If you have any type of sexual abuse from your past, it may be VERY challenging for you to imagine experiencing Enlightened Sex.
I invite you to keep an open mind, for you are about to combine and transcend two of the most controversial topics in the world, “Enlightenment” and “Sex”. This melting and merging of these seemingly opposite contradictory subjects, will open you to discovering the vast free spirit dwelling inside your being. The moment you remove all judgments around what Enlightened Sex looks like, what you have left is an open mind ready to explore the experience of a state of pure bliss. By freeing your mind right now from any assumptions or judgments that arise, you are inviting a great revolution in consciousness. This transformation is a truly spiritual awakening where you can enter every moment, every breath and any relationship in the most Enlightened Intimate way.460How long has Enlightened Sex been practiced on this planet?
In Khajuraho, India, there were over 200 erotic and exotic temples built from 950 AD to 1150 AD. Today, 25 of these ancient erotic temples are still standing and pose as living proof that sacred sexuality has been practiced for well over a thousand years. Each of the outer temple walls contain many carvings of erotic art, pornographic sexual positions, and masturbation. These sexual statues represent the pornographic play that is designed to uncover the divine goddess and god within us. They show us that sex is an intimate spiritual guide to discover the free loving, fully self-expressed, wildly creative divine being is who we truly are.
The statues were not created to convey hideous messages of disgust within you otherwise they would have not been created on temples. They are here to create a bridge between sexuality and the sacred. They awaken that sexual being inside you who can feel sensuality is one doorway to the divine. It is only through the body that we can experience life and discover the experience of God. Without the body there is no life, and no sensuality to taste, touch and feel what this great unification truly is. These temples are living proof that man has been able to find the experience of God through the sensual organs in the body. They enlighten us to this ancient knowledge that we can use every experience we are given in life to enter the Divine.

The 3 Secrets to Enlightened Sex
If you’re open to exploring the sacred sensual spiritual aspects of your being, you are about to dive into the most dynamic expansive healing experience of your life! Through a process of being vulnerable you can reveal what’s holding you back from being present to your beloved. Here, the subtle bodies soften and together you will create a divine experience for yourself and your lover.gesThe 1st Sacred Sex Secret to Enlightened Lovemaking is to learn how to communicate with radical honesty with your partner. This is about extending yourself beyond what you feel is your “comfort zone”. What you cannot talk about is exactly what you need to talk about. If you cannot open up to your beloved, who can you truly open up to? The practice of reaching out to your beloved from your heart, with vulnerability allows the Divine experience to come flooding in. The walls start crumbling down when you choose in each moment to dive deeper into intimacy, and release the over-protecting habit of defending and upholding the ego.

The 2nd Sacred Sex Secret is to let yourself totally dissolve into your partner. Meaning, surrender to them and the amazingly divine connection already between you. Sitting close to each other and doing long periods of eye gazing and slow, soft gentle touching will melt the apparent boundaries between you. Looking beyond their personality into their soul is by far the greatest way to create a long lasting loving relationship. If you do this on a daily basis you can only expect the most amazing relationship in humanity.

The 3rd Sacred Sex Secret is to create the most safe and loving space within yourself and outside of yourself. As within, so is without. So start with choosing to be emotionally, physically and mentally safe to creatively express yourself in ANY way you choose. Now being fully self expressed, there may be some things that may shock your partner at first. This is to be expected and brought to the surface to be recognized, yet not hooked into. Simply honor each other and never hide anything from each other. Be real, and know that deep down you will experience the greatest love, joy and ecstasy by loving, accepting and appreciating yourself totally as you are.

What is Tantra All About?
The ancient Sanskrit word “Tantra” has a very simple definition that means, “a direct experience that is without a book”. Tantra is the oldest and most powerful spiritual practice for creating enlightenment in the world today. It is complete in itself, a way of life where you feel spiritually alive and living each moment to its maximum. When a couple is focused on having a deep intimate connection, they are allowing for the direct experience of the other to enter them. It is through this intimacy that a profound healing occurs. The ego releases its habit of imprisoning you and you are truly free. As this sacred intimate connection deepens, it heals the entire individual, and radiates throughout the community. tantra1Energetically speaking, one whole couple in love and deep intimacy can provide a light of wholeness for the entire community to follow. Tantra is the ultimate exploration of the Divine Presence within yourself and the other. It is a release of your mind and ego into the cosmic orgasm that is happening in the Universe. No other experience comes even remotely close in this world to the levels of bliss, connection and peace with another human being. It is important to know that a Tantric experience does not always have to engage in sexual penetration. An orgasmic Tantra experience can be as simple as a long deep heart felt hug, or gazing into your beloved eyes. It is all about merging with the Divine, the oneness that we are all connected to.

I hope this beautiful article brought you some inspiration, maybe a little bit direction but most of all, joyful curiosity for the creation of a brand new paradigm for the sacred sexuality, that is emerging for humanity now!!
Blessings and Love!

Edith

Self-Initiation, the Egyptian Goddess Isis & the Awakening Path

“The magic you seek is within you. Call upon me to help uncover your greatest strengths.”

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
I imagine that the incredible intense combination of the energies Friday’s Sagittarius New Moon and yesterday’s 12/12/2015 frequency gateway have transmitted, has brought one or the other collective energy effect also to your door. We all are more sensitive now and that makes it even more important, that we understand as much as possible about our collective awakening process. One of my favorite themes is the study of a consciously chosen, mental death, that allows the deceased mind to be restarted like a computer – after deleting unneeded files. The process of resurrection from death, for a New Beginning.
And this is where the Egyptian Goddess Isis comes into play. Isis is one of the most important goddesses of ancient Egypt. Her attributes are those of a great magician, whose power transcends our momentary state of being, into higher vibrational realms. She is the Egpytian goddess of fertility, of divinely guided motherhood, of nutrition, inner wisdom, inner knowledge, the feminine archetype of creation, the goddess of protection for the living, and protects also the dead in the Underworld. She is also known as the dark mother, who teaches us that ‘out of experiencing darkness, emerges our individual inner light’. In Egypt today, her power is still invoked on behalf of the sick.
Isis is a representative of the Egyptian Book of the Dead, also known as the Papyrus of Ani, the ancient guidebook to a happy afterlife. Used to guide the deceased during their journey into the Underworld, to overcome all appearing obstacles and not lose their way. She is associated with the planet Venus, and therefor with the unconditional love of the universe for all beings existing. da69429a9e857ea95b111bd3a4a6cb3eYesterdays 12/12 Gateway has brought a new opening to the channel of our golden “I AM” Christ Consciousness. In the Mayan calendar today’s nawal (energetic day quality) is recognized as the force of mother nature, of the wilderness,of  all spiritual leader, of shamans and of priests of the divine sacred. People who understand how to read pattern and messages from the natural world, who help to keep our existence in balance with nature. What a perfect timing to connect with the amazing powers of the Goddess Isis and her natural force of death and resurrection.
The myth of Isis tells us that Isis was the daughter of the earth god Geb and the sky goddess Nut and the sister of the deities Osiris, Seth, and Nephthys. Married to Osiris, king of Egypt. But Seth was jealous, and organized a plot to kill his brother. Seth trapped Osiris in a wooden chest, which he coated in lead and threw him into the Nile. The chest had become Osiris’s coffin. With his brother vanished, Seth became king of Egypt. But Isis did not forget her husband, to the opposite she searched everywhere for him until she discovered Osiris. She brought his body back to Egypt, where Seth discovered that the chest was back and, furious about his failure, hacked his brother into pieces.
To ultimately get ride of him, he scattered his pieces far and wide all over Egypt. And again Isis was able to discover and reunite the parts of her dead husband’s body, with the exception of his penis that remained missing. Using her magical powers of alchemy, she made Osiris whole again – adding a penis made of pure gold to his body. Reunited they received a child, the Horus Child, half human half hawk.

Now this is just a myth you might think, but it is actually the tale of our personal awakening process. Osiris, our masculine divine creator powers scattered mind, spread all over the place (the spiral dance of creation)… by Seth representing our lower human feelings as jealousy, competition, hatred,….. brought back together by Isis (the divine feminine creator power, which is the divine guidance of our higher-self)… to than consciously create the Horus Child (the unification of the masculine and feminine, human and divine powers… the Ascended Human Angel)… isUse this Prayers and Invocation, to call on the energy field of the Goddess Isis:

Invocation Of Isis Energy
I, Isis, am all that has been that is or shall ever be,
I, who made light from my feathers, The wind from my wings,
No mortal man ever had me unveiled!

Prayer to Isis
Goddess Isis, Divine Mother, Goddess of Magic and Wisdom,
Hear my prayer!
Help me unlock my inner wisdom
so I can resolve all obstacles
and give birth to a higher vibrating version of myself.
Be with me and guide me on my way.
And so it is!

Isis Earth Prayer
We grow from the Earth
and we share her fruits.
We fly with bright wings
and we reach the stars.
We are Immortal with all that is.
One with Goddess Isis!

Dear once, I hope this piece brings you much hope and inspiration, courage and desire, to once again gather all your inner forces today… for an amazing shift of consciousness and awakening into the new paradigm of the Golden Age of Aquarius. Train your mind and eyes to stay focused on the golden path, surrender to the process, and keep breathing deeply!! Stay burning obstacles also with forgiveness and the violet flame and listen to the guidance of your own inner voice! She will let you know what has to go and what will remain!!
Blessings an lots of Love!  Edith

Why Men Must Give Up Pornography

the-pornDear Friends,
the other day I shared with some Facebook groups a video from a beautiful young female dancer, on a TV talent show. I did so because in my eyes her performance represented a beautiful expression of the divine feminine in her element. I loved the powerful vulnerability that I watched her sharing with the audience. The one thing that touched me most, was that she had chosen to perform to a song talking about “I WAKE YOU UP” and “WELCOME TO THE NEW AGE”. Because her presentation was also quite sensual/sexual, I was curious what would happen if I share her work in all my Awakening Groups. And indeed the reactions where highly interesting. Most people loved her performance and appreciated the fluent combination of powerful, skillful dance and the beauty of the performer.
But there was more. There was feminine jealousy, feminine competition, feminine degradation and feminine total denial of sexuality after or within the Ascension Process. The concept or mindset, that human beings after ascending will not have sex anymore. Which I personally rather consider an illusion. And there was masculine lust, turning of the feminine human being – to an lust object only, masculine disrespect, masculine belittling of women for being sexual beings and more. One opinion that stood out was, the  judgement that “she would pleasure man well and therefor should earn her money as whore (a profession by the way that I do not want to belittle in her place in our world in this moment of time / and at the same time an archetype of behavior, every human being has to overcome in order to ascend), or simple she belongs only in a strip club”. Reading the comments I was honestly shocked about how deep emotional wounds, rejections, hurtful and spiteful judgments had been expressed. Each of them a mirror of the commenters feeling world. So it fits me perfectly that I ran into this amazing piece from the wonderful Bryan Reeves, a worthy read for all men and women.
He himself states about his writing: “To be clear, I do not promote sexual shame or banning pornography. This article is intended to invite men into a deeper conversation around how we express and experience our sexuality, particularly in regards to online pornography”.

In my boyhood teenage days of yore, using pornography required patience, even imagination.
One of my early adventures with porn occurred on weekday afternoons when I got home from middle school. Before anyone else arrived, I would sneak into my parents’ bedroom closet with a small foot stool. I have no idea how I first found it, but resting atop the center ceiling panel, just inches from my horny little brain, was my step-father’s erotic treasure trove of betamax video tapes with titles like “The Oriental Babysitter” and “Taxi Girls.” I’d pop one into the black betamax box, hit play, and kick back on the lounger as sounds and images of ecstasy flooded my lusty synapses while I enjoyed myself a dozen or so times (oh, to be a teenager again).
A few years later, during high school, my tastes grew more sophisticated when mom started getting Victoria Secret catalogs in the mail. Although I kinda already knew what the big secret was, these glossy mags made my imagination work harder at unlocking it each time, and I delighted in that. But a new catalog once every few weeks was far too infrequent for my insatiable teenage libido, and I could barely wait for the spring issues when lithe Victorias would return to wearing sexy sundresses and seductive short skirts. Those days of porn patience and teasing my imagination are gone.lllAt this very moment, I – and most every other man in Western Civilization – have in my hands a little device loaded with the entire known universe of pornographic material ready to stir my lust and blow my loins wide open. I never have to wait till Spring again.“Enough is Enough” and “CovenantEyes,” two internet safety organizations, offer these sobering statistics (note: CovEyes is Catholic-based; I am not):
• Every second, 28,258 Internet users are viewing pornography.
• American children begin viewing pornography at an average age of 11.
• The pornography industry is a $97 billion industry worldwide.
• Men are 543% more likely to look at porn than are women.
• More than 1 in 5 searches are for pornography on mobile devices.

“If you have the Internet, you have pornography in your home.”
— Jill Manning, Ph.D., Marriage and Family Therapist

Porn is ubiquitous. You might be surprised who uses online porn. I have amazing male friends, attractive and dynamic, who’ve spent countless hours over many years caught in the sticky pornographic web. You would never imagine these men using online porn. But they have. And do. I have also used it.
As a single man for the last 4 years, great sexual encounters with women have been a rare luxury. My iPhone, on the other hand, is all too willing to dance for me, undress for me, tease me, lick me, suck me, screw me and all around indulge me, whatever I want, any time I want.
I do not generally have an addictive personality, yet I have at times gone weeks using internet pornography every night to quickly arouse and then satiate myself. There were times I seemed to need it just to fall asleep. I would watch up to an hour or more in bed before exhausting myself enough to fall asleep, which ironically carved into an already sleep-deprived entrepreneurial lifestyle. At one point using porn actually gave me repetitive stress injury, messing up my otherwise formidable basketball game. I experienced other disconcerting side-effects of porn, too, some of which I’ll detail below. There’s nothing wrong with masturbation. I also don’t believe in sexual shame. But modern pornography can be a serious detriment to everyone, not just to men, but to the women we love, too.

Here’s 6 reasons why I believe men must give up consistent use of pornography for personal stimulation:

1) Porn ruins our erections with actual women.

After I had been using porn moderately for about a year, I began to notice that I couldn’t sustain erections with women as long as I once could. I was horny as ever, but without the constantly changing visual erotic stimulation that watching video after video offered, one woman’s body couldn’t hold my erotic focus as effectively as it used to. To my frustrated surprise, real sex had become somewhat under-stimulating. Tragic. Since I gave up porn, even morning wood has made its return like an exotic tree rescued from the brink of extinction. (Reference: http://globalnews.ca/news/1232726/porn-causing-erectile-dysfunction-in-young-men/)xx

2) Porn tunes our bodies to premature ejaculation.

I never had a problem with quick climax before I consistently used porn. I could always match, if not outlast, my female sexual partners, with or without a condom, with solid erections. With porn, I could watch a short video and within minutes have myself rocketing towards climax. But I’d stop myself before I went too far, because I always wanted to see what different erotic adventure awaited me in the next video, just a click away. I would do this for an hour, rapidly rising in mindless bliss with every new short video, stopping myself at the edge each time. Eventually, I’d realize how much time had gone by, so I’d choose the best video I’d seen and let it throw me over the edge. I was tuning my body to quickly rise and climax. I can immediately stop moving my own hand when I masturbate. A real woman’s aroused body doesn’t stop moving so fast. It’s like trying to slam on the brakes of a speed boat in deep water. I just couldn’t often handle her enthusiasm, and I started getting really concerned. Thankfully, quitting porn has allowed my body’s nervous system to retune itself to a less hurried sexual pace and rhythm. (Reference: http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/all-about-sex/201005/premature-ejaculation-the-two-causes-mens-1-sex-problem)

3) It’s a cop out from interacting powerfully with actual women.

Most men in our western culture generally do not know how to interact powerfully with women in the everyday world, certainly not as mature healthy masculine men. We routinely fail to proactively step up to women we’re attracted to in effective and honorable, respectful ways. So many of us routinely let our silent crushes slip away forever into the dark painful cave of our regrets. Masturbation can take the edge off all the resulting frustration, so much so that we don’t then have to do anything useful about it, like learn how to be more powerful (and still respectful) in our interactions with actual women.

4) It’s such a waste of time.

Watching porn alone and a lot is a stupid use of our precious time on Planet Earth.

5) It creates unrealistic expectations of women.

Porn just makes us think women should be easier to get into bed. It makes us think we might get laid more if we were more bold or clever, or simply more aggressive. Which is actually probably true. In fact, there is surely room for western men to be bolder with women, but not at the cost of genuine care for women. Women in porn videos are always willing to let a man (or men) aggressively open them up and do whatever they want. They’ll take the money shot right in the face, on their knees beneath a cock and a camera, as if to fully underscore their willingness to be conquered and owned by a man, and for all the world to see. In my experience, actual women don’t react to calculating male aggression by opening their legs. Even if they do – and sometimes they probably do – that doesn’t create an authentic intimate relationship. It just creates two bodies slapping into each other. Women are lusty, sexual creatures, for sure. Just like men. But when men are ready to relate to women in deeper ways, ways that include sexuality and also transcend it, porn is an awful study. The wondrous feminine mystique of a woman, the mystique us men so desperately crave to experience, is only made available to the men who learn how to cherish a woman in her fullness. That doesn’t happen anywhere in porn. (Reference: http://www.wnd.com/2013/11/porns-part-in-sex-trafficking/)aaa

6) When we watch porn, we support human trafficking, slavery, rape, and blackmail of women all over the world.

Despite my tame taste in porn and the fact that I never paid for online porn, I still unwittingly saw videos on the average free porn site that disturbed me. I am horrified that I almost surely watched men manipulate, even outright blackmail, women into otherwise unwanted sex in fake taxi cabs, fake doctors offices, fake casting sets, and more. The camera never showed the man’s face; always the woman’s. Since I started researching this, I’ve discovered countless examples of criminal cases worldwide where people, mostly men, have been arrested and prosecuted for creating pornography with women they trafficked from other countries; women who were enslaved in buildings they could not leave; women kept in place by physical violence; women threatened with exposure to their families; and more. I know now that I must have watched videos where women did sex acts they were forced to do. And my tastes in porn were tame. I’m not implying a direct link between porn and criminality. I am simply saying I couldn’t easily avoid watching videos of questionable, disturbing origin.  (Reference: http://www.wnd.com/2013/11/porns-part-in-sex-trafficking/)
I’m still tempted to watch porn sometimes. Even as I write this, my iPhone sits quietly beside me, able in a matter of seconds to unleash a marauding army of sexy oriental babysitters straight into my lizard brain. But clearly nothing good ever comes from that, so to speak. Men, we’ve got to stop using porn. I know it’s a quick fix. I know some couples even use it to spice up an otherwise fading sex life. Find other ways. Get creative. Porn is easy, low-hanging fruit. It’s beneath our brilliance. It’s not just hurting us; it’s also hurting our women.

Brazil announces massive reforestation and renewable energy plan with US

President Dilma Rousseff pledged to restore 12m hectares of deforested land and increase renewable energy use by 2030 as part of climate partnership with US.
Barack Obama and Dilma Rousseff put climate change at the top of their agenda at their bilateral meeting on Tuesday, with the US and Brazil agreeing to obtain up to 20% of their electricity from renewable power by 2030.
Brazil also committed to restoring up to 12m hectares of forest – an area about the size of England or Pennsylvania – in another attempt to reduce the carbon pollution that causes climate change.
The White House said the initiatives were part of a new US-Brazil climate partnership, loosely modeled on the historic US-China agreement reached during Obama’s visit to Beijing last November, intended to build momentum for a global deal to fight climate change in Paris at the end of the year.
“Following progress during my trips to China and India, this shows that the world’s major economies can begin to transcend some of the old divides and work together to confront the common challenge that we face,” said Obama at a joint press conference with his Brazilian counterpart.

Rousseff also heralded the agreement as a highlight of her trip, claiming it would help progress towards a global emissions reductions agreement at upcoming talks in Paris.
“Climate change is one of the central challenges of the 21st century,” she said. “And we have one important objective, which is, number one, to ensure that the energy mix in our two countries will have a substantial share of renewable sources of energy.
“As countries that are as vast as continents, we have this very important greenhouse gas emissions target,” added Rousseff. “We attach a great deal of importance to reducing [deforestation].. and we also wish to turn the page and engage in a clear-cut reforestation-oriented policy.”
The pledge will require the US to triple its production of wind and solar power and other renewable energies. Brazil will need to double its production of clean energy. The figures do not include hydro power.“This is a big deal,” Brian Deese, the White House climate adviser, told a call with reporters.

images (1)He said putting climate change at the center of the US-Brazil relationship would help drive action on the issue. “We are shining a spotlight on the issues and elevating the conversation around them,” he said.
Rich and poor countries alike have been putting forth their commitments, known as nationally determined contributions, to reduce emissions as part of the treaty, which world leaders hope to finalise later this year in Paris.
Brazil also plans to expand renewable energy sources other than hydropower to between 28% and 33% of its total energy mix by 2030.
And in the electricity sector, the US and Brazil jointly announced intentions to increase their share of renewable, non-hydropower sources to 20% by 2030. Deese said boosting renewables that high in the US would be dependent on controversial power plant emission limits that the Obama administration has proposed.
“We believe that this is an ambitious target, but one that is actually achievable and will create new low-cost opportunities for the American economy,” Deese said. “To achieve it, we’re going to have to continue to hit our marks in implementing the regulations we’ve identified to date.”

Brazil’s gamble on deep water oil
The US has already announced its full commitment to the climate treaty: a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions of up to 28% by 2025, compared with 2005 levels. But a key sticking point in the climate treaty has been whether developing countries like Brazil will be willing to make substantial contributions. Poorer nations have balked, arguing that industrialized nations that have polluted more historically bear more of the responsibility for curbing climate change.
The announcement comes on the second day of Rousseff’s visit to Washington, where she met with Obama in the Oval Office on Tuesday morning.
In their visit, Obama and Rousseff have been working to show they have moved beyond tensions sparked by the revelation nearly two years ago that the US was spying on Rousseff. She cancelled a planned state visit in response. Officials in both countries say neither leader is interested in rehashing the spying issues this week and instead want to focus on ways to deepen cooperation.

Pope Begs Forgiveness For Sins And ‘Offenses’ Of Church During Conquest Of Indigenous America

Pope Francis formally apologized this past Thursday for “the sins and “offenses” committed by the Catholic Church against indigenous peoples during the colonial-era conquest of the Americas.” In the same trip to Boliva that the pope was reportedly to take place in the chewing of coca, the pope asked forgiveness from the indigenous groups and Bolivia’s first-ever indigenous president, Evo Morales.

Francis admits with regret:
“Grave sins were committed against the native peoples of America in the name of God…I humbly ask forgiveness, not only for the offenses of the church herself, but also for crimes committed against the native peoples during the so-called conquest of America… I also want for us to remember the thousands and thousands of priests who strongly opposed the logic of the sword with the power of the cross. There was sin, and it was plentiful. But we never apologized, so I now ask for forgiveness. But where there was sin, and there was plenty of sin, there was also an abundant grace increased by the men who defended indigenous peoples.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The crowd’s response: wild and cheerful applause. “We accept the apologies that are more than we could have hoped for from a man like Pope Francis,” says indigenous leader, Adolfo Chávez. It is clear that the power of forgiveness transcends religious belief, and can touch even those who have been mistreated for centuries.

 

 

 

 

 

 
This powerful apology was significant for many reasons. Many native cultures held much well deserved disregard for the church when thousands were slaughtered in the name of “God” during the conquest of indigenous america. The native spiritual teachings and medicines were also demonized, causing a deep-rooted misunderstanding by christians as to the values and benefits the native cultures had to offer. This is a step in the right direction in unifying the world religions to understand all people as one, and to garner respect for traditions older than time itself.

The Consciousness Revolution

Consciousness Revolution

by Graham Hancock

Consciousness is one of the great mysteries of science – perhaps the greatest mystery. We all know we have it, when we think, when we dream, when we savor tastes and aromas, when we hear a great symphony, when we fall in love, and it is surely the most intimate, the most sapient, the most personal part of ourselves. Yet no one can really claim to have understood and explained it completely. There’s no doubt it’s associated with the brain in some way but the nature of that association is far from clear. In particular how do these three pounds of material stuff inside our skulls allow us to have experiences?

Professor David Chalmers of the Australian National University has dubbed this the “hard problem” of consciousness; but many scientists, particularly those (still in the majority) who are philosophically inclined to believe that all phenomena can be reduced to material interactions, deny that any problem exists. To them it seems self-evident that physical processes within the stuff of the brain produce consciousness rather in the way that a generator produces electricity – i.e. consciousness is an “epiphenomenon” of brain activity. And they see it as equally obvious that there cannot be such things as conscious survival of death or out-of-body experiences since both consciousness and experience are confined to the brain and must die when the brain dies.

images (3)Yet other scientists with equally impressive credentials are not so sure and are increasingly willing to consider a very different analogy – namely that the relationship of consciousness to the brain may be less like the relationship of the generator to the electricity it produces and more like the relationship of the TV signal to the TV set. In that case when the TV set is destroyed – dead – the signal still continues. Nothing in the present state of knowledge of neuroscience rules this revolutionary possibility out. True, if you damage certain areas of the brain certain areas of consciousness are compromised, but this does not prove that those areas of the brain generate the relevant areas of consciousness. If you were to damage certain areas of your TV set the picture would deteriorate or vanish but the TV signal would remain intact.
We are, in other words, confronted by at least as much mystery as fact around the subject of consciousness and this being the case we should remember that what seems obvious and self-evident to one generation may not seem at all obvious or self-evident to the next. For hundreds of years it was obvious and self-evident to the greatest human minds that the sun moved around the earth – one need only look to the sky, they said, to see the truth of this proposition. Indeed those who maintained the revolutionary view that the earth moved around the sun faced the Inquisition and death by burning at the stake. Yet as it turned out the revolutionaries were right and orthodoxy was terribly, ridiculously wrong.

The-Painters-Universe-by-Cherie-Roe-DirksenThe same may well prove to be true with the mystery of consciousness. Yes, it does seem obvious and self-evident that the brain produces it (the generator analogy), but this is a deduction from incomplete data and categorically NOT yet an established and irrefutable fact. New discoveries may force materialist science to rescind this theory in favour of something more like the TV analogy in which the brain comes to be understood as a transceiver rather than as a generator of consciousness and in which consciousness is recognized as fundamentally “non-local” in nature – perhaps even as one of the basic driving forces of the universe. At the very least we should withhold judgment on this “hard problem” until more evidence is in and view with suspicion those who hold dogmatic and ideological views about the nature of consciousness.

It’s at this point that the whole seemingly academic issue becomes intensely political and current because modern technological society idealizes and is monopolistically focused on only one state of consciousness – the alert, problem-solving state of consciousness that makes us efficient producers and consumers of material goods and services. At the same time our society seeks to police and control a wide range of other “altered” states of consciousness on the basis of the unproven proposition that consciousness is generated by the brain.

I refer here to the so-called “war on drugs” which is really better understood as a war on consciousness and which maintains, supposedly in the interests of society, that we as adults do not have the right or maturity to make sovereign decisions about our own consciousness and about the states of consciousness we wish to explore and embrace. This extraordinary imposition on adult cognitive liberty is justified by the idea that our brain activity, disturbed by drugs, will adversely impact our behavior towards others. Yet anyone who pauses to think seriously for even a moment must realize that we already have adequate laws that govern adverse behavior towards others and that the real purpose of the “war on drugs” must therefore be to bear down on consciousness itself.

222ce-bhang2bthe2bindian2bpsychoactive2bdrink2bmade2bfrom2bcannabis2bduring2bthe2bholi2bfestivalConfirmation that this is so came from the last British Labor government. It declared that its drug policy would be based on scientific evidence yet in 2009 it sacked Professor David Nutt, Chairman of the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs, for stating the simple statistical fact that cannabis is less dangerous (in terms of measured “harms”) than tobacco and alcohol and that ecstasy is less dangerous than horse-riding. Clearly what was at play here were ideological issues of great importance to the powers that be. And this is an ideology that sticks stubbornly in place regardless of changes in the complexion of the government of the day. The present Conservative-Liberal coalition remains just as adamant in its enforcement of the so-called war on drugs as its Labor predecessor, and continues in the name of this “war” to pour public money – our money – into large, armed, drug-enforcement bureaucracies which are entitled to break down our doors at dead of night, invade our homes, ruin our reputations and put us behind bars.

All of this, we have been persuaded, is in our own interests. Yet if we as adults are not free to make sovereign decisions – right or wrong – about our own consciousness, that most intimate, that most sapient, that most personal part of ourselves, then in what useful sense can we be said to be free at all? And how are we to begin to take real and meaningful responsibility for all the other aspects of our lives when our governments seek to disenfranchise us from this most fundamental of all human rights and responsibilities?

In this connection it is interesting to note that our society has no objection to altering consciousness per se. On the contrary many consciousness-altering drugs, such as Prozac, Seroxat, Ritalin and alcohol, are either massively over-prescribed or freely available today, and make huge fortunes for their manufacturers, but remain entirely legal despite causing obvious harms. Could this be because such legal drugs do not alter consciousness in ways that threaten the monopolistic dominance of the alert problem-solving state of consciousness, while a good number of illegal drugs, such as cannabis, LSD, DMT and psilocybin, do?

13There is a revolution in the making here, and what is at stake transcends the case for cognitive liberty as an essential and inalienable adult human right. If it turns out that the brain is not a generator but a transceiver of consciousness then we must consider some little-known scientific research that points to a seemingly outlandish possibility, namely that a particular category of illegal drugs, the hallucinogens such as LSD, DMT and psilocybin, may alter the receiver wavelength of the brain and allow us to gain contact with intelligent non-material entities, “light beings”, “spirits”, “machine elves” (as Terence McKenna called them) – perhaps even the inhabitants of other dimensions. This possibility is regarded as plain fact by shamans in hunter-gatherer societies who for thousands of years have made use of visionary plants and fungi to enter and interact with what they construe as the “spirit world”. Intriguingly it was also specifically envisaged by Dr Rick Strassman, Professor of Psychiatry at the University of New Mexico, following his ground-breaking research with human volunteers and DMT carried out in the 1990’s – a project that produced findings with shattering implications for our understanding of the nature of reality. For further information on Strassman’s revolutionary work see his book DMT: The Spirit Molecule.
