Nā Manāʻo | The Adorable Story of “Telling The Bees”

“The Bee Friend”, a painting by Hans Thoma (1839–1924)

There was a time when almost every rural British family who kept bees followed a strange tradition. Whenever there was a death in the family, someone had to go out to the hives and tell the bees of the terrible loss that had befallen the family. Failing to do so often resulted in further loss such as the bees leaving the hive, or not producing enough honey or even dying. Traditionally, the bees were kept abreast of not only deaths but all important family matters including births, marriages, and long absence due to journeys. If the bees were not told, all sorts of calamities were thought to happen. This peculiar custom is known as “telling the bees”.  […]

Lemurian Thoughts …

Believe us when we say that you, as members of the Family of Light, made a vast study of the historical manipulation that has been going on on this planet, just as anyone sent on assignment would be trained for a long period of time before they were sent out into the field. Each of you has been trained, and you have the knowledge inside you. Our part is to hit key chords and play your consciousness into activity so you can go ahead and make the tune or song or dance you are prepared for. Your knowledge is inside of you, and as you agree to discover it, it will awaken on deeper and deeper levels. You will become very self-sufficient, those of you who agree to this. You will also become incredibly knowledgeable, those of you who do not stop because you are frightened.

Developing Clairsenses | Intuition

Intuition is the survival factor of humankind and is what has saved us from great dangers. This has been cultivated within all of us, especially within the womb and the deep feminine intuitive nature. This is also why pure intentions are so important, for us as individuals and as a collective to practice, so we can clear out negativity in the world. When we do something, we should always make clear to ourselves what the intention is. When we start some new project or meet someone new, clear intentions are important in order to grow what we truly want. Intentions that come from a pure place, always create more pure experiences. So what are your intentions, when you write that text, speak to someone, buy something, start something? What are your intentions when being around certain people and do certain things? One should have clear intentions, intentions of creating more love, unity, positive change and healing within oneself and others. This leads to true abundance.

Nā Pohāku Lā’au | Moldavite

Moldavite is a green translucent gemstone that comes from a single meteorite which fell to earth nearly 15 million years ago and landed in the Czech Republic. It is considered the only gemstone of extra-terrestrial origin.  Moldavites existence predates known history. The Neolithic peoples of Eastern Europe regarded the glassy crystal as a spiritual talisman more than 25,000 years ago.  Moldavite was believed to bring good luck and harmony to marital relationships and for centuries was given as a wedding gift. In the 1960’s the Swiss government gave a gift of Moldavite to Queen Elizabeth II on the tenth anniversary of her coronation. It was a beautiful naturally sculpted raw stone set in platinum and surrounded by diamonds and black pearls. There was also a rosary of faceted Moldavite beads with a carved Madonna made for Pope John Paul II as a gift from the Czechoslovakian people.

Moldavite indeed fell from the heavens and scientists associate it with the meteoric collision which formed the Bohemian plateau and surrounding mountains. While scientists differ in theories regarding Moldavite’s origin, nearly all agree its formation coincides with the crash of a large meteorite approximately 14.8 million years ago.  Legend has it moldavite was the green, emerald-like stone found inside the Holy Grail and said to be a talisman for the healing of the planet. Moldavite carries an intense frequency, a fusion of earthly and extraterrestrial energies that are instantly felt. Holding Moldavite for the first time usually produces a sensation of heat, then the heart chakra is activated, and emotional release from laughter to tears may occur. Moldavite’s frequency may take some getting used to, but its profound ability to accelerate one’s personal and spiritual evolution is worth it.  A star-born catalyst of healing and wholeness, this is a sacred talisman of awakening opening the doors to our destiny. Moldavite is a catalyst for quickened inner evolution towards one’s highest good. The changes it brings can be intense and rapid. The healing can occur in the physical body, the chakra systems, one’s dream life and other aspects of the spiritual dimensions. 

Moldavite is a valuable stone for star children and sensitive souls who find it difficult being on earth.  Wearing Moldavite opens the heart and helps return that beautiful pink glow to your aura that is associated with unconditional love. Placed on the heart, Moldavite uncovers the reasons and purpose for why one is here, and eases the “homesickness” for the stars. Wearing, or simply holding, a piece of Moldavite can produce many interesting and instantaneous reactions. Its vibration are so high, too much exposure can be overwhelming. The fluttering most people feel in their chest while holding moldavite happens because moldavite opens the heart & thymus (spiritual heart) chakras. When kept close to the body, moldavite will remove energy blockages in all chakras. If you have had trouble opening your heart chakra and releasing bottled-up emotions, moldavite is the stone for you! 

There are many benefits of this stone, and exposure to it including, activating the dream state when worn while sleeping, helping one to acclimate to the Earth plane. It aids in expansion of consciousness and rapid transformation, releasing of those things that do not serve one’s highest path. Moldavite is considered the only known gemstone of “extraterrestrial” origin. Moldavite is one of the most beneficial gemstones for accelerating psychic awakening and spiritual growth.  While wearing or holding moldavite, solutions to problems will become clear. It’s not uncommon to have an epiphany or two while working with moldavite! 

If you struggle with finding your purpose in this life, I recommend carrying or wearing a moldavite as it helps you to “remember” why you are here. Moldavite will often bring repressed emotions bubbling to the surface This helps to facilitate emotional healing and spiritual growth. Moldavite is a talisman, a cosmic sigil, sent to Earth.  It has its own cosmic Over-soul.  Moldavite has an ability to connect with the Ascended Masters and Angels of Light.  It has the ability to ground Light for the healing of the Earth. Moldavite creates an energy of spiritual protection, preventing negative energies and entities from connecting or clinging to one’s energy field.

Spirituality | On Tantra, by Veeru Ram

Tantra and Supernatural Power

********************************

Anand Marg_The Path of Bliss

*******************************

The science of spirituality developed out of human beings’ innate desire to unravel the mystery of creation. Humans began to search for the secret causes underlying both the dreadful and the beautiful aspects of nature. They looked around them at the rivers and streams, the far-flung mountain ranges, the flashes of lightning; they heard the thunder; they listened to the roaring of ferocious animals – and they began to plumb the depths of these mysteries. These endeavours to get at the hidden truth of everything are what is known as Tantra. Since these endeavours were carried on at different times, in different places, and by different groups of individuals, we find some differences in methodology among the various schools of Tantra.

Tantra originated in [South] Asia, and its propounders were the Austrics, [the Dravidians,] and the Mongolians.(1) Among these peoples, the Dravidians and the Mongolians were more developed, the Austrics less. The practitioners of the more-developed Tantra would look upon things from a broad point of view, renouncing all narrow thinking. They would always strive hard to advance the welfare of the masses. Through such selfless service, they would overcome the fetters of the mind, such as hatred and shame. The practitioners of the less-developed Tantra would behave in just the opposite way. They would indulge in casteism; in expressions of untouchability; and in expressions of hatred and envy in relation to other groups.

The overcoming of material bondages signifies the greatest human progress. The word tantra signifies that one “frees oneself from the bondages of crudity;” therefore Tantra is considered the best kind of spiritual practice. Lord Sadáshiva was the first propounder of this Tantra. He developed certain fixed rules, and thereby ensured all-round progress in the different aspects of human life. He brought about a perfect system, reviewing and coordinating all branches of Tantra. He researched and proved the efficacy of both the [external] and the [internal] aspects of Tantra.(2) The [external] aspect of Tantra consisted of sádhaná with skulls, in cemeteries. The [internal] aspect of Tantra consisted of the practice of yoga. [It is ultimately] through [internal] Tantra that human beings can reach the heights of spiritual success.

Human beings can never win liberation by flattering Prakrti. An entity which is flattered becomes proud. Human beings must not become the slaves of matter. If sádhakas will worship Puruśa and ignore Prakrti, they will find that Prakrti will automatically begin to flatter them.There is no such thing as “supernatural” in this world. All sorts of powers lie dormant in human beings. Sometimes we get glimpses of these latent powers. In a more-developed terminology, these glimpses will be called “intellect” or “intuition”. Human beings can develop that which they have glimpsed, eventually attaining extraordinary powers. In the eyes of ordinary people, these powers appear to be supernatural, but actually they are natural. But it is a fact that ordinary persons cannot do these extraordinary things, and that is why they look upon these powers as supernatural.

Tantra is a source of such extraordinary powers. Within a short period, all the páshas and ripus [fetters and enemies] which bind the mind become broken. As long as the mind is in bondage, it tends to move towards crude material objects; that is, the mind remains inextricably associated with matter. But once the bondages become snapped through the practice of Tantra, the mind becomes detached from those crude objects. This implies the elevation of human beings, because [it is through detachment that] physical, psychic, and spiritual progress becomes possible. Humans are predominantly-mental beings, and sometimes [certain of them] develop extraordinary intellect; because of their greater concentration of mind, their societies consider them to be a superior type of person.

When we talk about the ripus [enemies] of the mind, we mean only the [internal, or, innate] enemies.(3) For a human being to bring the ripus under perfect control signifies an important victory. Those persons who can do so attain greater control over the forces of matter, and can perform feats that in the eyes of the common masses betoken some kind of supernatural power.

In Tantra the endeavour to establish control over matter or over external forces is called avidyá sádhaná. And the practice which leads to self-realization is called vidyá sádhaná. And that branch of Tantra which is neither vidyá sádhaná nor avidyá sádhaná is called upavidyá sádhaná. Only vidyá sádhaná contributes to the welfare of humanity; the other two practices are merely a waste of time. Márańa, uccát́ana, sammohan, váshiikárańa, etc., come within the definition of avidyá sádhaná. The practice of avidyá leads to degradation. Sadáshiva, the original propounder of Tantra, collected and systematized all the branches of Tantra, but He did not encourage the practice of avidyá, because it is an inferior order of sádhaná. When people practise sádhaná in order to attain “supernatural” powers, their mental objects ultimately become crude, for after attaining such powers, they utilize them for self-aggrandizement or for revenge.

Vidyá sádhaná was almost extinct for the last 1200 years. And there are now only a handful of real Avidyá Tantrics left – the rest are charlatans and hypocrites. After death, these people will be reborn as worms and insects.

Human beings practise sádhaná in order to become one with Brahma, not to become ghosts or ghouls. To become one with Brahma, they must practise Vidyá Tantra, and not Avidyá Tantra. Of course through either kind of sádhaná, sádhakas gain freedom from the páshas and ripus. But the difference between the two sádhanás is that the practitioners of Vidyá Tantra channelize their spiritual powers towards the attainment of Paramátmá, whereas the practitioners of Avidyá Tantra utilize their acquired powers for mundane benefits. Through Vidyá Tantra one “binds” [wins] Paramátmá, while through Avidyá Tantra one binds [dominates] living beings. Vidyá Tantrics accept Paramátmá as their object of supreme adoration, and in order to become one with Him, they channelize all the powers they have acquired towards Him.

From a medical point of view also, Tantra sádhaná has its usefulness. In ancient times there were Vedic experts in áyurveda.(4) But as they were not Tantrics, they were handicapped in fully utilizing their medical knowledge to cure patients. Because of their prejudices – their hatred of certain groups, their belief in untouchability, their casteism, etc. – they would hesitate to touch the bodies of their patients; whereas the Tantric doctors, because of their control over [such enemies and fetters as] hatred, fear and shame, could render medical service in a proper way. The practices of dissection and surgery rested mainly in the hands of Tantric doctors.

I have wanted to write this post for awhile and each time I sat down to continue writing I was hit by a big fat no. I actually don’t write or journal notes for my blog, I just keep drafts on my online folder. But in this instance I had made a few pointers on paper and it kept going missing.

Necromancy can be worked in so many ways and it is a personal journey for everyone. I suppose this post is geared towards the beginner Witch and maybe just some general interest on how I do things.
