Magical Journal - A Storm Approaches

30th September 2014

There is a bad storm on its way. I've been intuitively feeling it now for several weeks. Its almost overhead. I've been battening down the hatches, pulling in the ancient forces I associate with, for additional protection. The sense of foreboding is really strong. 

I began with cold like symptoms two weeks ago - for me the first signs of a psychic attack. An attack of a magnitude this time, that I feel it is going to be a contrived multiple attack. The approaching maelstrom feels immense. A shifting and swirling dark hole of chaotic venom. 

I know it approaches. Sleep patterns have been disturbed. The first whispers of the storm are very minor 'demons' but even they have an effect. They are the weakest foot soldiers of some immense entity's army. It has been summoned, and unleashed ... and it approaches now relentlessly ... slowly, arrogantly and menacingly. I have started countering the first touches of the negative depressive thought patterns by resuming the upgrade of my LIGHT OF TRUTH ORACLE CARDS ... keeping myself nice and positive. Brimming with positive and lightful thinking. But for how long?

There have been forces in recent weeks trying to disrupt my mystic arts. Attempting to prevent me from reading for clients ... the forces are weak like I say, but they have been effective on a number of occasions. The usual ease and comfort I gain during my sessions has been disrupted. And this is only the start of the onslaught. What is it going to be like when the full force of the demonic entity is unleashed on our minds?

I'm sure a number of you reading this journal entry will be feeling the same as me. The sense of foreboding is incredible. I just know something BIG has been let out of its cage and is on its way. Some gargantuan black ritual has been taking place, and will no doubt be reinforced in the coming weeks. The earth's own energy fields have been tweaked and primed by a very black force ... it has been prepared for centuries of negative rituals throughout the world. Now is THAT time when their grand plan of the ages has started. I just know it ... 

What approaches must not be feared. It requires fear to exist. It feeds off fear and hatred and all the other negative emotions. It will use its demonic horde to twist and distort thought processes - to fiddle with the human mind to believe perceptions of reality which are not really there at all.  The honorific demonic force is a master of mind control. We all must be prepared for trickery tomfoolery with our thoughts and our perceptions. It is not going to be easy to stay focused over the next few months. 

The challenge is immense ... Matthew James 

How To Recognise An Energy Vampire ... and what to do about it

The Spirit Science: All of us experiencing this at different levels, whether it be a relationship where you were so manipulated you started questioning your own sanity. Having to scribe and keep track of each moment because this person was convicting you the sky was actually purple or simply a friend or coworker not being happy for fortunate moments within your life. It is the feeling of being drained of your energy, your natural joy and life force by someone around you. You can feel them deliberately or unintentionally sapping and mutating their surroundings into negativity.

Our main mission here on this planet is to love one another. To join hands and head and build the higher vibration to shake away all that is lacking. This energy sapping feeling has to start somewhere in my opinion, originating from a general expectation for the other person (the energy vampire) to share this feeling, this mission of mutual elation. The current societal construct has been built on the opposite ideology telling us unconsciously on a daily basis since birth, that when we do not get the emotional energy we need (that should be from sharing) we must then go into dominating or competing with others. An unconscious competition for energy underlies all energy vampire conflicts. By dominating or manipulating others, they get the extra energy they think they need. It feels good to them but both parties are damaged in the conflict. The truth is always inherently looming though, that we never have to control, overpower or manipulate anyone or any situation because each person has a direct line to source energy, the most abundant and powerful source of energy there more>>>...

Find Your Soul Purpose through the Akashics

The Akashics is a name derived from the Sanskrit word Akasha and it refers to the base substance of the universe. This is the substance by which the Universe is made and that retains a record of all that has ever occurred to everything that has ever existed. Scientists in various fields are beginning to find evidence that confirms the existence of Akasha and are beginning to see it as a ‘field’ as omni present as gravity and he electro-magnetic field. It is currently discussed in the various scientific communities as the ‘in-formation’ field that underlies everything and is the force that holds all things together. Long before the scientific method gave us tools to learn about our world, indigenous cultures on every continent knew of its existence. Medicine elders, mystics, shamans, gurus, druids, and all types of holy people spent a great deal of their time and resources attempting to reach it consciously, to channel the information and energy they experience there, and to bring back the wisdom that they have acquired through their travels. Each in their own way have done so, bringing healing, insight and a better life to all who have known them, read or heard about more>>>...

Introducing The Ogham & The Tree Oracle

The Ogham is a unique ancient bardic alphabet used for magic, divination, secret communication, and on memorial stones. 

It is of purely Celtic origin, and unlike most other alphabets, the Ogham does not have separate characters but has instead sets of five letters represented by one, two, three, four and five lines above, below or bisecting a base line known as a ‘druim’. 

To the Celts language was a powerful thing not only in terms of common communication, but also for magical purposes too. In the Ogham, each letter has its own power and all words beginning with the same letter were magically linked; so each letter has a corresponding tree, bird, colour and a whole plethora of meanings that been lost over time.

The Death and Rebirth of Self

Daily OM: Sometimes a part of us must die before another part can come to life. Even though this is a natural and necessary part of our growth, it is often painful or, if we don’t realize what’s happening, confusing and disorienting. In fact, confusion and disorientation are often the messengers that tell us a shift is taking place within us. These shifts happen throughout the lives of all humans, as we move from infancy to childhood to adolescence and beyond. With each transition from one phase to another, we find ourselves saying good-bye to an old friend, the identity that we formed in order to move through that particular time. Sometimes we form these identities in relationships or jobs, and when we shift those areas of our life become unsettled. Usually, if we take the time to look into the changing surface of things, we will find that a shift is taking place within us. For example, we may go through one whole chapter of our lives creating a protective shell around ourselves because we need it in order to heal from some early trauma. One day, though, we may find ourselves feeling confined and restless, wanting to move outside the shelter we needed for so long; the new part of ourselves cannot be born within the confines of the shell our old self needed to more>>>...

How Conspiracy Theories Work

Are you the kind of person who likes to hear to a good conspiracy theory?

Some people simply do not like the discomfort that a conspiracy theory creates. But for others, conspiracy theories are intriguing. They like to explore all of the possibilities that a conspiracy theory presents, in the same way that they like to explore puzzles or mystery novels. Sometimes a conspiracy theory is ridiculous and learning about it is a form of entertainment. Or you may find that the theory is credible and it makes you think. It's interesting to consider the theory, weigh the evidence and come up with a conclusion.

The dictionary defines a conspiracy theory in this way:

A theory seeking to explain a disputed case or matter as a plot by a secret group or alliance rather than an individual or isolated act. A conspiracy theorist, therefore, is a person who formulates such a theory.

There is a certain negative undertone to the term "conspiracy theory" in today's society. Detractors will point out that many conspiracy theories contain certain features that undermine their credibility. In this article, however, we will use the term "conspiracy theory" in its neutral sense. We are using it to mean an alternative explanation for an event, as it is defined in the dictionary.

In modern times there have been a number of "conspiracy theories." One example is the assassination of John F. Kennedy. After the assassination, the government offered its explanation of the events. A large number of people (at one point, more than half of the adult population in the United States) simply do not believe the government's explanation. This particular conspiracy theory rose to such a high level in the public consciousness that an entire Hollywood movie was made about it: "JFK", directed by Oliver Stone and released in 1991.,,read more>>>...

At the Feet of the Divine

Daily OM: We all know the feeling of walking through life as if we are carrying the huge burden of our worries and stresses on our backs and shoulders, struggling to keep moving forward. There is no real way to move freely and fluidly in such a situation, and we are all longing to lay our burdens down. Just imagining that it would be possible to do such a thing can be enough to elicit a sigh of relief and a feeling of lightness. The human imagination is a powerful tool, and we can use it to take journeys to faraway places without ever leaving our home. Because of this, we too can lay our burdens down at the feet of a divine being such as the great Mother, Buddha or a mountain. Releasing ourselves from that which we can’t handle on our own. No matter how smart we are, how capable we are, or how hard we work, no one can single-handedly cope with all the worries that we tend to take on in the course of our lives. And, we aren’t designed to do so. Our wellbeing depends upon our ability to hand over that which we can no longer carry by more>>>...

Quote for the Day

The Legendary Emerald Tablet

Ancient Origins: The origins of Western alchemy can be traced back to Hellenistic Egypt, in particular to the city of Alexandria. One of the most important characters in the mythology of alchemy is Hermes Trismegistus (Hermes the Thrice-Great). The name of this figure is derived from the Egyptian god of wisdom, Thoth and his Greek counterpart, Hermes. The Hermetica, which is said to be written by Hermes Trismegistus, is generally regarded as the basis of Western alchemical philosophy and practice. In addition, Hermes Trismegistus is also believed to be the author of the Emerald Tablet. The Emerald Tablet is said to be a tablet of emerald or green stone inscribed with the secrets of the universe. The source of the original Emerald Tablet is unclear, hence it is surrounded by legends. The most common legend claims that the tablet was found in a caved tomb under the statue of Hermes in Tyana, clutched in the hands of the corpse of Hermes Trismegistus himself. Another legend suggests that it was the third son of Adam and Eve, Seth, who originally wrote it. Others believed that the tablet was once held within the Ark of the Covenant. Some even claim that the original source of the Emerald Tablet is none other than the fabled city of Atlantis.,,read more>>>... 

What’s the Difference Between Your Higher Self and Your Soul?

Your Higher Self is, in simple terms, the highest aspect of you that can be attained and  held in the physical body. It is the part of you that knows, sees, and understands at the highest level possible, while the physical part of you still continues to move around in the third dimension. Anchoring the wisdom of the Higher Self into your physicality is very much a part of our human spiritual evolution and purpose.

Your Soul, on the other hand, had an enormous role in deciding upon and designing what you experience in this lifetime. Your Soul wanted to experience a certain set of  experiences so it put in place a plan and process where it could - through you.

This amazing time of Shift is adding to how you experience both your Higher Self and your  Soul. As you begin to remember yourself and return to higher levels of consciousness, aspects of you and the Higher Self are going to merge very rapidly. As you begin to experience yourself as the merged Higher Self, greater levels of knowledge, wisdom, and understanding that the Higher Self IS begin to be who you are.

Defining 'Awen'

Awen is a complicated concept and hard to understand. Teaching its meaning is often not clear and imprecise. Every object in the physical realm holds a share of this spiritual phenomenon. 

Every tree, bird, animal, reptile, fish, every blade of grass and every other thing imaginable (or beyond imagination) possesses its own precious share of Awen. The spirit of man, if openly appearing different in form and life to these things is still, in truth, a tiny part of this greater whole. 

Awen is never born and never dies. Distinguishing human and non-human as separate existences is incomprehensible as Awen is the universal power behind all life, even beyond boundaries we can only imagine. In the physical realm we recognize Awen as nature, and humankind exists as a part of nature, not as an outside (nor superior) entity. Our physical world can therefore be characterized by this oneness of spirit, a unity where all things are related, and where all things connect. As humankind is one with the natural world, we can see that we are all spiritually forged together forever with all natural existence. 

Distinction between the natural and the supernatural also becomes meaningless, as both are the personification of Awen. Knowing Awen is empathy, not a physical unit to point at, touch or calculate. Respecting our world, especially the natural parts are endemic to proliferation of the species (all species).

The Awen can be intoned as a single monotone note using three syllables  “Ah-oo-en”

Insight for the Day

Copyright Matthew James 2014
Your beloved and your friends were once strangers. Somehow at a particular time, they came from the distance toward your life. Their arrival seemed so accidental and contingent. Now your life is unimaginable without them. Similarly, your identity and vision are composed of a certain constellation of ideas and feelings that surfaced from the depths of the distance within you. To lose these now would be to lose yourself.”

Nazca lines of Kazakhstan: More than 50 geoglyphs discovered

S.O.T.T: More than 50 geoglyphs with various shapes and sizes, including a massive swastika, have been discovered across northern Kazakhstan in Central Asia, say archaeologists. These sprawling structures, mostly earthen mounds, create the type of landscape art most famously seen in the Nazca region of Peru. Discovered using Google Earth, the geoglyphs are designed in a variety of geometric shapes, including squares, rings, crosses and swastikas (the swastika is a design that was used in ancient times). Ranging from 90 to 400 meters (295 to 1,312 feet) in diameter, some of them are longer than a modern-day aircraft carrier. Researchers say that the geoglyphs are difficult to see on the ground, but can easily be seen from the sky. Over the past year, an archaeological expedition from Kazakhstan's Kostanay University, working in collaboration with Vilnius University in Lithuania, has been examining the geoglyphs. The team, which is conducting archaeological excavations, ground-penetrating radar surveys, aerial photography and dating, recently presented its initial results at the European Association of Archaeologists' annual meeting in more>>>...

Scottish referendum result undoubtedly rigged

S.O.T.T: Apparently terrorized by the fear-mongering tactics of the British establishment media, in the form of hysterical warnings about food price rises and "societal disintegration", the fiercely independent Scottish people voted to remain in the UK. Or so the British establishment media would have us believe. The official result matched the predictions of polls conducted by huge for-profit City of London market research companies. Prime Minister David Cameron declared that "this settles the independence debate for a generation." Case closed? I don't think so. We're being asked to believe that a majority of Scots voted 'Yes' to more austerity, 'Yes' to more wars in their name, 'Yes' to keeping nuclear weapons, 'Yes' to the continued theft of Scottish natural resources and 'Yes' to less democracy.

If all of that sounds unbelievable, it's because it is ...READ MORE>>>...

Going Through A Phase

Daily Om: We are all almost always in the process of learning something new, developing an underused ability or talent, or toning down an overused one. Some of us are involved in learning how to speak up for ourselves, while others are learning how to be more considerate. In the process of becoming, we are always developing and fine tuning one or the other of our many qualities, and it is a natural part of this process that things tend to get out of balance. This may be upsetting to us, or the people around us, but we can trust that it’s a normal part of the work of self-development. For example, we may go through a phase of needing to learn how to say no, as part of learning to set boundaries and take care of ourselves. During this time, we might say no to just about everything, as a way of practicing and exploring this ability. Like a child who learns a new word, we want to try out this new avenue of expression and empowerment as much as we can because it is new and exciting for us and we want to explore it fully. In this way, we are mastering a new skill, and eventually, as we integrate it into our overall identity, it will resume its position as one part of our balanced more>>>...

Shaman Definition

A Shaman is a man or a woman, of an indigenous tradition, who walks between the worlds as a healer, seeking to attune to the eternal vibrations of the Otherworld, and to then retune those people or places that have fallen out of harmony. In most societies, the shaman has been replaced by the priest.

The Four Different Animals

Working with animal powers can put us in touch with four different types of animals:

1. The animal in the physical world - leading us to discover more about its life & ways;

2. The animal in the inner world - animal act as ideal symbols or images of deepest fears and urges; or those parts of our psyche which have been denied or repressed;

3. The Power Animal - Druid tradition, as well as other indigenous belief systems, practice that animals also exist in spirit-form in the otherworld. These animals often visit us to give energy or healing, inspiration or advice. They are known as ‘power animals’ because they carry a particular power, gift or ‘medicine’;

4. The Totem Animal - If we choose to work with power animals, we may find ourselves developing a special bond with one or more of them. We will sense their presence often in our consciousness - teaching and guiding us.

Magick Journal
20th September 2014

Here I am on the eve of The Spring Equinox Druidic Festival at The Henge, Bywong, NSW on the outskirts of Canberra. I will be donning my ‘druid shaman’ hat tomorrow and leading the main Spring Equinox ritual tomorrow. I’m feeling slightly excited … only slightly … because I’m focussing my mind on the intention and the power of the ritual. It will be the FIRST ever ritual at The Henge standing stones. It is a huge honour to be permitted to ‘tread where my celtic ancestors’ have trod, I feel privileged to be the first Celtic Druid in centuries (To be confirmed) to undertake the VERY FIRST ritual in a ‘virgin stone’ circle. The weight of responsibility feels immense. I tune into the circle round at Bywong and feels it expectation and its earth power. It is truly a special place.

In keeping with my TRUE PATH I’ve become much more aware of the earth energies, the elementals, the Fey and the signals from the nature vibration itself in recent weeks. Life has taken on a new wonder, a wonder which is omnipresent and eternal. No amount of negative intention in the world will EVER destroy Gaia’s will and existence.

It may only be a small gesture tomorrow, a tiny pebble tossed into the raging sea of energies on this planet, but that tiny gesture I hope will represent one of the primal seeds that help end the chaos and the negative reign on this planet.

Tides are turning, and 2014 has suddenly become a key time line point in the war between light and dark. There are frantic attempts by agencies of the darkness to plunge this world into eternal chaos and slavery. The actions of the light may appear small in comparison, but believe me we carry the blessings of the universe … ‘our medals may well be in the post’ so to speak … but know the outcome of this final battle has already been decided and played out amongst the higher vibrations. We are merely experiencing the physical expression of that battle. The light does win! The darkness runs scared as it lives on fear and hatred. It watches its back constantly, scared for its very existence. The light is fearless and connected. The darkness is separation and segregation. The darkness fights amongst itself. The light now gathers and patiently grows in incandescence.

That light will be felt amongst those who partake in the gathering tomorrow. I will be taking my part in the ritual very seriously. It is an honour and a fantastic chance to express what is really my path and my bloodline … Matthew James

Your soul knows the geography of your destiny. Your soul alone has the map of your future, therefore you can trust this indirect, oblique side of yourself. If you do, it will take you where you need to go, but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm in your journey.”

SCOTLAND SAYS NO! Referendum result triggers constitutional earthquake as Cameron opens door to devolution for ENGLAND

Daily Mail: Alex Salmond today admitted defeat in his battle for Scottish independence, as almost 2 million people voted to remain in the United Kingdom.On the worst day of his political life, the First Minister tried to put a brave face on the electorate’s crushing verdict, claiming that it showed only that a majority had decided ‘at this stage’ not to become an independent country. But with all but one council area declared, No had secured 55 per cent of the vote, a 10-point lead which will trigger speculation about whether Mr Salmond can survive as leader of the Scottish Nationalists. The Queen has been ‘closely’ monitoring the outcome of the vote, and is expected to issue a public statement welcoming the survival of the 307-year Union later today. David Cameron also celebrated the result, and in a dramatic move announced plans to use the offer of more powers to Scotland to introduce ‘English votes for English laws’, strengthening the Tory party’s grip on Westminster.

In the early hours, Mr Salmond shunned the cameras to board a private jet from Aberdeen to Edinburgh, contemplating the comprehensive failure of his efforts to destroy the 307-year-old Union. But in a message posted on Twitter he praised the city of Glasgow, one of the few places to vote in favour of independence, and 'the people of Scotland for such a incredible support'. He hoped to triumph in one of the most extraordinary political battles in British history, but the determination of the people of Scotland means the United Kingdom remains in tact, and Mr Salmond faces the grim prospect of being forced out of more>>>...

4th Dimensional Entities and What You Can Do About Them

Whether we like it or not, entities are everywhere in the 4th dimensional field around us. It’s a bit of a taboo subject in western culture; one of those subjects where people are a bit concerned about being labelled as ‘crazy’ or ‘Xfiles-ish’.The term ‘entity’ can be a bit confusing, so lets draw up a brief outline before focusing on the entities that people usually mean. There are three main types of entities; 1. The earth-bound spirit 2. Higher dimensional beings and 3. The non-human negative entity.

1954 Pictures Show Stonehenge Being Built

Local Terror: This Russian website shows stunning photos of what appears to be Stonehenge being built. The author provides a detailed information about how the British government/military built this new age cult site and speculates the fact that it may have actually built from scratch or at least remodeled. The author also contends it may be a replica of the original. The pictures are stunning nonetheless.

Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction: There has according to many Main Stream Archeology information sites never been a massive excavation of Stonehenge yet here it is proof Stonehenge was manufactured as a tourist site in 1954. These pictures are proof the so called certified academia lie to the public in order to create drama and misinformation about our past. We are being fed lies and deception at every turn. Just consider the statement out of the Mainstream stipulating there has never been an extensive site search prior to the latest release associate with this article.

Was Stonehenge built around myth and folklore then fabrications and pictures created to perpetuate a lie? Or is Stonehenge what they say it is, an Ancient Druid Monument? Old picture forgeries are easy to manufacture. However a whole event of them are not. Was Stonehenge nothing more than a vacant circle in a field surrounded by stories and later developed for tourism? You more>>>...

The Don't Knows hold key to separation: Final series of polls suggest future of the UK hangs in the balance

Daily Mail: A final series of opinion polls last night suggested the future of the UK hangs in the balance – but Alex Salmond will still have to win over huge numbers of voters who remain undecided to clinch victory. Pollsters gave the No camp a lead of between two and six points. The biggest survey, by YouGov for the Sun and the Times, put No on 52 and Yes on 48. Crucially, however, it suggested that just four per cent have yet to make up their minds - well down on recent figures. If correct, almost all the undecideds – some 170,00 or so voters – would now have to break for Yes for independence to get the go ahead. A Survation poll for the Daily Record, excluding the nine per cent who said they did not know how they would vote, put Yes on 47 per cent and No on 53 per cent.

Ruins Of Ancient City Discovered In Australian Desert

World News Daily: A team of archaeologists working for the Australian National University, who were proceeding to an excavation near the sandstone rock formation of Uluru, has unearthed the ruins of a large precolonial city dating back to more than 1500 years ago. The important number of tombs and artefacts already discovered on the site suggests that it could have been the capital of an ancient empire, completely unknown to historians until now. The site which was first noticed on satellite pictures taken in October 2013, using a newly developed ground-penetrating radar. The images revealed many 90° angles and various common geographic figures over a 16 km2 area, leading the team of scientists to direct some archaeological excavations on the spot, starting in May 2014. Over the last few months, many structures have been unearthed including what looks like a royal palace, a few temples, large rainwater reservoirs, workshops and dozens of houses.

Professor Walter Reese, in charge of the site, claims that the extent of the site and the superposition of various layers of constructions, suggests that it was occupied for 400 to 500 years, from approximately 470-80 AD, up until the 9th Century. He believes that the city could have held between 20000 and 30000 inhabitants, making it the most important center of civilization in the Southern Pacific at the time more>>>...

Allowing Our Light to Shine

Daily Om: There are times when we may not feel at our best and brightest. At those times we can take a look at what we might do to let our inner light shine to the fullest. Because we are physical, mental and spiritual beings, we need to determine where our spiritual light is being filtered or blocked. We can work from the outside inward, knowing that we are the only ones with the power to dim our lights, and as we clear away the layers we can get out of our own way to feel the warmth of our own light shining again. As vehicles for our mind and spirit, our bodies require proper maintenance. Caring for ourselves is like polishing--helping to clear away the accumulation of physical debris that keeps us from operating at our fullest capacity. A simple shift in our thoughts can positively affect our mental state, moving from complaints to gratitude and applying the powerful light of love to any shadowy thoughts. A change of scenery can allow us to see the world in new ways more>>>...

Circadian Rhythm The body has an internal clock called a circadian rhythm, helping you to sleep in the evening and wake in the morning. Your sleep health and overall wellbeing is dependent on your circadian rhythm working correctly; and remaining synchronised with night and day.

The most important external indicator to help keep your body synchronised with this routine is light. When the eye senses light, it sends a signal to your brain to be awake. When it becomes dark in the evening, your body produces melatonin, often called the sleepy hormone signalling your body to sleep at night. The combination of biological processes in response to light and darkness are crucial factors for your body to remain synchronised and sleep at the right time. If you do not receive light at the right times due to the winter months or lifestyle factors, this can confuse your circadian rhythm leaving you unable to sleep when you need to.

If individuals try to sleep at a time that does not match their circadian rhythm then this can result in the following:

Poor sleep quality
Insufficient sleep duration
Sleepiness and fatigue
Impaired overall well-being in family and social life
Decreased motor and cognitive performance

Signs Of Spirit Possession

If sexual harassment is defined as "unwelcome attention," then possession may be defined as "unwelcome intrusion of interference by a spirit into one's thoughts, will and/or body." Anyone can be a victim of evil spirits or demonic possession. Even very religious and prayerful persons have been known to be possessed. Modern western psychology and psychiatry do not consider demonic possession to be a clinical reality. However, more enlightened practitioners and researchers now feel that certain types of psychosis (such as schizophrenia), or any sudden or radical change in behavior, can be signs of spirit possession. 

Signs of Spirit Possession 
Any or a combination of the following behavior pattern is indicative of spirit or demonic possession: 

1. Hearing voices directing the person to perform acts he may not have considered doing. 
2. He or she will frequently see or sense the image of the possessing spirit as it existed in its physical life. 
3. The victim may blackout or faint without knowing what transpired during that time. 
4. Sometimes, in the midst of a conversation, he may have a mental block and act in a trance-like manner. 
5. He may be observed talking or walking differently or acting in a strange, irrational manner. 
6. He may act in a way he has never done before. His friends may see him as a totally different person. 
7. In a worst scenario, the possession may reach a climax where the person may commit a crime, some violent or anti-social act and even suicide. 
8. He or she may speak in tongues, and perform lewd acts and avoid religious objects (like a crucifix, rosary, etc.) (

A Spiritual Path, a way of life, a philosophy, Druidry is all of these…Druidry today is alive and well, and has migrated around the world forming a wonderful web of peo- ple who honour and respect the Earth and the sacred right to life of all that is part of the Earth. Like a great tree drawing nourishment through its roots, Druidry draws wisdom from its ances- tral heritage. There is a saying in Druidry that ‘The great tree thrives on the leaves that it casts to the ground’. Druidry today does not pretend to present a replica of the past, rather it is pro- ducing a new season’s growth. - Cairistiona Worthington, The Beginner’s Guide to Druidry

Just HALF a can of Coke is MORE than new daily sugar guidelines backed by scientists - who recommend just three cubes a day

Daily Mail: Just half a can of Coca Cola will exceed daily recommended sugar levels if new guidelines - backed by experts - are introduced. The new move would see the daily recommended sugar intake slashed to just 14g a day - the equivalent of three sugar cubes. It comes amid calls to ban sugary foods from schools as part of a radical new plan to combat obesity. Leading academics have said vending machines selling sweets and fizzy drinks should also be removed from public places. They have also called for a 'sugar tax' to increase the retail price of sugary drinks and sugar-rich foods by at least 20 per cent.

Current guidelines from the World Health Organisation set a maximum of 10 per cent of total energy intake from free sugars, with five per cent as a 'target'. Free sugars are defined as those added artificially to foods such as fizzy drinks and confectionery, rather than naturally occurring sugars found in fruit. This equates to around 50g of free sugars (10 cubes) per day as the maximum, with 25g (five cubes) as the more>>>...

Supermoon 2014: September Harvest Moon Caps Off Summer Full Moon Trilogy

IBT: The final "supermoon" of 2014 will rise on Monday and wraps up the summer trilogy of full moons that began in July. The September full moon, in addition to being a supermoon, is also known as the Harvest Moon.

A Harvest Moon is the full moon closest to the equinox, when the sun crosses the celestial equator, which takes place this year on Sept. 23. For the Northern Hemisphere, the autumnal equinox marks the beginning of fall, with shorter days and longer nights. The Southern Hemisphere experiences a vernal equinox, marking the beginning of spring and longer days.

The September supermoon is the last of 2014, and skywatchers can get a good look at the full moon, as it appears slightly larger and brighter, on Monday. The illusion is due to the moon's elliptical orbit as it reaches its closest distance to Earth, known as perigee. The August supermoon was considered the best of the summer trilogy as the moon turned full within the hour it reached perigee whereas the July and September full moons occurred on the same day as more>>>...

A Word on 'Egregore'

.."An egregore is a kind of group mind which is created when people consciously come together for a common purpose. Whenever people gather together to do something and egregore is formed, but unless an attempt is made to maintain it deliberately it will dissipate rather quickly. However if the people wish to maintain it and know the techniques of how to do so, the egregore will continue to grow in strength and can last for centuries."

An egregore has the characteristic of having an effectiveness greater than the mere sum of its individual members. It continuously interacts with its members, influencing them and being influenced by them. The interaction works positively by stimulating and assisting its members but only as long as they behave and act in line with its original aim. It will stimulate both individually and collectively all those faculties in the group which will permit the realization of the objectives of its original program. If this process is continued a long time the egregore will take on a kind of life of its own, and can become so strong that even if all its members should die, it would continue to exist on the inner dimensions and can be contacted even centuries later by a group of people prepared to live the lives of the original founders, particularly if they are willing to provide the initial input of energy to get it going again.

If the egregore is concerned with spiritual or esoteric activities its influence will be even greater. People who discover the keys can tap in on a powerful egregore representing, for example, a spiritual or esoteric tradition, will, if they follow the line described above by activating and maintaining such an egregore, obtain access to the abilities, knowledge, and drive of all that has been accumulated in that egregore since its beginnings. Agroup ororder which manages to do this can, with a clear conscience, claim to be an authentic order of the tradition represented by that egregore. In my view this is the only yardstick by which a genuine Templar order should be measured." (Chaos Matrix)

Egregores are artificial or spontaneously created elementals born from the spiritual, cultural and philosophical ties of a group and are given life and fueled by agreement, offerings and recognition.  Originally meaning “watcher” as they were elementals created by magical groups to keep watch over workings and protect against physical and non physical dangers and intruders.  Many pagan and esoteric groups consider “godforms” as egregores which are jointly created by the divine spirit and the god’s followers.  Egregores can be born, forgotten and evolve as in the case with aspects of godforms from ancient history.  Many have been worshipped as gods and have offerings and religions built around them such as Catholic Saints are good exampled of personified minor godforms some being pagan deities and others originating from real people who have been canonized.

Some of these personified egregores can be viral such as Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny without a central authority but still suspended with kids believing in them and adults knowing they are not real.  The creators (writers, corporate executives, actors and artists) of some personified egregores are equivalent to a priesthood. The collective actions, agreement, spirit, personification, imagery, traditions, cultural impact and interactions surrounding  of their fans, keepers and creators results in a collective group soul that manifests to have almost a karma, behaviors, style, destiny and personality.

A Word on 'The Endocrine System'

Inner Body: The endocrine system includes all of the glands of the body and the hormones produced by those glands. The glands are controlled directly by stimulation from the nervous system as well as by chemical receptors in the blood and hormones produced by other glands. By regulating the functions of organs in the body, these glands help to maintain the body’s homeostasis. Cellular metabolism, reproduction, sexual development, sugar and mineral homeostasis, heart rate, and digestion are among the many processes regulated by the actions of hormones. more>>>...
