Public service & private hells – some thoughts regarding Teachers, Priesthood & facilitators!

“People in public spotlight can never do wrong & never do right..! Both exists all the time. When it suits the masses or media or both, they will project all the goodness on the figure and put them on a pedestal .. and when it suits the masses or media or both, they project a group shadow on the figure and hang them mercilessly.

There is something to be said about how we treat others – it’s 90% of the time a shadow projection.. . (Effectively), People are loving or hating their own suppressed/ shadow self.. (and) They just project that onto public figures! I know many learned people know this.. but being in a mild objective mood for all of 20 seconds, I thought I’d actually spell it out. To say anything else will mean many people will just slam me for taking one side or another! “

I wrote the above in connection to a friend’s wall discussion about some couple in the media.. But this applies to ANYONE in the public eye!.. and I guess I put myself in there too, as I am in the public eye. I have been so for over 20 years now.. and I can tell you, it’s never ever been easy. Before anyone jumps and shouts, yes I chose this path of public services etc – my deeper motivations `can be’ argued as ranging anything between altruism to a need for love & validation from public because I am not empowered enough or don’t have it in my life. That’s for me to know and you to speculate.

Fact remains, I chose a path of public figurehood. That doesn’t mean I chose to be hated on purpose, or like being bullied. It also doesn’t mean I chose to be `owned’ by anyone – public service does not mean public ownership. It just means that – more so than others- I chose to give more of my time for other people in an open way. (many people do this, but they do so privately.. so you can’t call them public figures’).

Think about that for a moment too. Friends in communities and groups support one another behind the scenes but they don’t announce it or talk about it.. We call that being a friend. But when we set ourselves in a position to do that to any stranger who walks into our lives, we call that public service – be it on a paid manner a professional or a non-paid manner as a community service.

Now comes a deeper matter yet.
Those is public eye aren’t all bitches or bastards.. Some of them are well-meaning politicians, priests & priestesses, teachers and facilitators! (like I am, and like my father was before me, and like my uncle in another country).

People in public service are humans too. They/we/I have feelings.. and not all have a thick skin to cope with abuse, hundreds of expectations, projections both good and dark. Many come into it with a genuine heartfelt motivation.. to simply want to help and make the community or world a better place.. It might all start well.. but as their `public profile’ and exposure increases, so does the reactions/ projections by others.

Sometimes the expectations of others just become too much, too overwhelming, to cope with. This can be blamed on lack of training, lack of preparation, over ambition, unrealistic expectations of the self, or being unable to balance the needs of the self and personal life against the needs of the public service … Or a number of hundred other things!

In such cases, I have 2 points to make-
1) Training & experience:
Public service is not something suited to everyone, no matter what their best intentions are – and not everyone walks into it with proper training' . It's one of thoseon the job training’ situations.

(note: I’ve held official roles such as full time Union Rep/officer/charity project manager.. before I walked into pagan community leader/facilitator roles.. so it can be said I have had some `training’.. ).
No two roles have ever been the same, and the training is not so much about learning to do the tasks.. but more about cultivating a deeper personality and/or inner strength that gives the person ability to face challenges!)

That brings me to the next point
2). Mentors and Support!
No one stands alone. Don’t even try. Anyone serving in any public capacity needs mentors and support for themselves. If not they can loose perspective, or loose motivation or worse, project their own shadows (fears, wants, needs, loves & hates) and start to harm the very people and communities they are serving!!!

People on early stages / years of being public servants need to have mentors who have travelled further along that road, and know signs, pitfalls and dangers.. so they can pass that knowledge to the less experienced.

People offering themselves as servers sometimes also need to vent' (offload..) or more professionally speaking, be counselled about the transpersonal issues that their service is bringing up in themselves.. like being at the receiving end of being bullied, hated, loved, sought after.. etc. Egos, buried prejudices, shadow projections all are at play.. and need to be aired out and worked transpersonally so that they are not subconsciously projected back at their clients’, students or communities!

In simplest form, this `venting/ processing’ can be fulfilled by counsel/chat with a close personal friends / partners / colleagues / trusted peers. But that can cause other issues (too complex to go into here). It is always better to have someone slightly removed and is more able to be detached emotionally..

These are just `some’ matters that people need to think about before firing off a post… slamming or vilifying a person in public spotlight.

-Mani Navasothy

ps. some could argue that I myself am projecting. Am aware enough to understand it.. but also aware enough to use this as a teaching point. That after all is the best a public servant can hope to do! No one is immune to their human nature! 😉 8-|

A Jupiter-Venus Good Fortune Spell (Free online) TODAY 12noon

TODAY on Thursday 11th February, the most beneficial planets Jupiter & Venus will be conjunct!! This is happening on a new moon day!! That’s a stellar opportunity for planetary magic that must not be missed!!!

So we’re setting this FREE online event at a special time at 12noon.. to go through step-by-step, and do this magic together!

The actual conjunction occurs at 3pm UK time.. so by teaching and going through it at 12pm, you’ll be attuning to it and `capturing’ the energies of this most auspicious joining of 2 planets.. !

I’ve been doing astrology & planetary magic for many decades.. and will be teaching & guiding you through this step by step.. This spell does not exist. It’s been created by me just for this occasion, adapted from my own private workings. Normally I keep this to myself, but as a Sagittarian ruled by Jupiter, I’ve been propelled by intuition to lead this today (hence the short notice). The world is very much in limbo with many intense difficulties.. There has never been a need for positivity more so than now.. to give people Hope, inspiration, and motivation.. to lift spirits and lives up!

Enough about all that.. If you are any it into astrology and planetary magic, you’ll want to do this with me. Even if you can’t get all the tools and ingredients together quickly (I’ve kept it so easy but keeping the essence intact).. at least join and observe… so you can learn a bit of planetary magic for Free (normally my courses have a fee around £20-30 for this sort of workshop/ course).

Preparations/ tools needed—–

1. A candle (for the spell) – At the most luxurious, you can use a large pillar candle, or a simple long dinner candle…or the very least, a tea-light candle. What colour? That’s up to you.. white is better. But red is better.. Blue or purple are good too. But don’t worry.. just have a new candle ready. [Real witches & magicians have to be able to do magic quickly with what they have. sometimes!].
— You’ll need a candle holder too to place this candle (if it’s tea-light or pillar candle it will stand on its own.
–lighter/ matches (obviously).

2. A large White (A4) size blank paper (or card) & pen (any colour). This paper/ card is where you’ll be writing some key words to power up, and place the spell-candle. This paper/ card will then become a `sigil-talisman’ to keep. So try to find something that can last longer.

some sort of incense / sage for cleansing your working space – if you can manage something.

3. [optional]
Altar candle(s). If you already have some altar candles.. Have them lit when we start this work. Light/ fame are magical and clear space and create a positive environment to do this magical work.

4. [optional]
Sit and think about 5-10 key positive things you like in your life..
This is not a gratitude thing. This is a WISH spell. So think of the things you want, desire, need – to be fulfilled and have a happy life.
(examples; Financial wealth, friendships, love, relationship, Job, career, work, good health, freedom, passing exams, happiness, loved ones being healthy/ happy, progress in life…all that!! )

Jupiter & Venus – between them are all about GOOD-FORTUNES & GOOD-LUCK. Their energies can help with all good things.

That’s it.. get your stuff ready…and log in at 12pm..
We won’t waste time.. we’ll get straight to it.
I’ll give some brief explanations of the God/ Goddess we are drawing in, explain the magic, and off we go..!

Once zoom starts, I’ll lock the room to avoid distractions.
There will be NO replay. You get one chance.. to take it!!

Our psyche in knots: Remembering & releasing our Dead .!

Our psyche in knots: Remembering & releasing our Dead .!

Moon in Cancer today… so it’s not surprising to see some posts here from few friends.. someone’s father died few days ago and she is having an astral farewell. someone else is suddenly remembering her mother passed away 4 years ago this time. And someone else is trying not to remember when their mother passed away.. around this time.

All these are painful.. and those memories stay deep within our psyche, getting buried deeper and deeper each passing year.. and causing the individuals discomfort, trauma, inner pains…. if they are not `opened up’ and eased, faced and released.. !

Am not at all being all `wise’ or `preachy’ . I know this pain very well. After my father died in a road accident, I went into some denial mode ..(slotting into `man of the family’ mode). Gave up University residence..moved back home .. The first 2 years were fine.. then my University grades started to drop..fails..repeats.. even an actual kind-out. I was not into parties, no relationship during the entire university time.. Just small stuff.. fitness, writing novels, painting.. yet life went down down down.. I missed my father much (though the end of his year was not good at home.. fights etc due to his flaws). But so many regrets.. I’d look at this funeral photos regularly and privately..(would not show it to mum or sisters but I’d be reliving it.. again and again).

This went on for almost 5-10 years!!Through it all, my spirituality took a dive. I became anti-religious.. then suicidal due to all my educational failures.. and somehow pulled through and found pagan spirituality.. and life started a positive upward spiral.. (and here we are).

I recall a point where I said enough was enough..and sealed his photos.. threw away some of his small precious possessions..(Only kept his broken wrist watch that had stopped at the time of his crash/ death and one ball point pen.. that I had placed in his hands for a short while in his coffin! Oh believe be I got dark in those years that people can not imagine.. After seeing some tribal film, I even thought I might drink his ashes in water!)

My Life only took off for me, after I released my father’s death from my psyche. I had thought to finish his life’s work.. his scholarly studies.. his Phd.. but then finally chose that I have my own work..and life to live.

In case people don’t know.. I was 5 years old when I saw my grandfather pass away.. and while his body was in the house for few days in a open coffin.. I lived in that house.. and played as a boy. My uncles and aunt kept me busy (mother was far away having just had my 2nd sister and was with her parents.. Father was busy with whatever her needed to do.. I only remember my uncles and aunt keeping me busy those days..)

Since then I have seen many relatives pass away before me.. As priest, I’ve even performed `pasing rites’ to terminally ill comatose loved ones.. and they then passed within hours.

As much as I don’t like to.. death defines my life.. (and this is perhaps why when it comes to do Dark Lord / veil stuff in pagan rituals for autumn/ samhain.. my energy clicks in fast and deeper than anything else).

I chose few years ago to click into Life.. and only `open up’ the Dark Lord energy in me at very specific seasonal times.. And as The Doctor (who) once said, `the name we choose is a promise we make to be who we are’…. and it’s no coincidence that the name I have currently on facebook (Mani Morningstar) is chosen for this time.. I may keep it or I may change it in a few months.. we’ll see how far I need to work that energy ..for my self and for the world. I don’t preach ..well I do..but with a lot of explanations.. like this one, so people know where I am coming from.. Not from a metal egocentric place of power and control.. but from a heartspace of compassion, empathy and love to want to help others in inner-turmoil.

If I can help.. I will do my best.Even if I or anyone else can’t help you.. YOU should go deep within.. (like the late Maureen helped me do in pathworkings and meditations back in 2001-02) to those key issues of loss of a parent.. and face them.. and resolve them. (I once cut of the head of my own father in a pathworking.. That was not malicious.. it was resolving a sub-personality or an energy that had consumed me for so long).

so take what you `Will’ from this.. and make your inner-samhain journeys… Don’t let the beloved-Dead sleep long within you and leach your energies and powers and live as zombies and vampires within your psyche. Let them go with love and light.. to the divine.It frees your heart to love again.. your self..and others. ❤

Blessings

video: LBRP- Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram – Introduction & Full easy demonstration

The LBRP – Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram – is a ceremonial piece of magic performed at the start of any major magical work. It’s aim is to clear / banish *all* energies from a particular working space – so that the magician can then create sacred space, consecrations, and fill the space with energy of their own – for invoking Deities or angels or other works.

LBRP has 5 components/ stages:

1. Grounding & Reaching High to Deity.

2. Kabbalistic Cross.

3. Banishing Pentagrams & Circle.

4. Calling 4 Archangels at Quarters for Protection.

5. Kabbalistic Cross (again).

I’ve written detailed blogs and taught LBRP at courses. And finally, in this video I give a personal introduction, and give a demonstration on how to perform the LBRP. I’ve created graphics & short animations to help show you what to `visualise’. The video was filmed in a woods near my home in 2018.

11 minute video showing how to do LBRP – Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram. (c) Mani Navasothy. http://www.QuantumPhoenix.net

In a forthcoming video (LBRP video2), I will be giving full explanations of each of the sections of LBRP, as well as verbal guide (like a guided pathworking), so that you can play it and practise the LBRP your self. Look out for my LBR video-2 soon. For now I hope this video gives you all the basics you need to learn about LBRP. It really is a short piece of magical work, but profound, nevertheless.

A Serving Life: Wisdom of a Wiccan High Priest

A Serving Life: Wisdom of a Wiccan High Priest

Back in 2001, when I was an Elected Equal Opps officer in the Home Office Union, we had a period of internal committee wrangles.. lots of frosty faces, and many internal e-mails flying about. Accusations, counter-accusations. Justifications. Rights and wrongs. And on one side the President, Vice President, Treasurer, and about 10 others…and on the other side was just me, and my mentor/ Branch Secretary Peter R.

Peter would say to me, `Mani, we are here to serve the members. So just do your duty to them’ And it took so much effort for me to park my ego aside, ignore the taunts by other officers, and keep working only on members’ cases!

Funnily enough, about the same time, as a newly made Wiccan High Priest, and a coven-free wiccan, I ended up as a Guest at the late Maureen’s coven.. and was eventually made the Coven High Priest.

And I can tell you …it’s not easy being part of an existing coven of super-transpersonally trained Witches, let along being their coven HP. Once there was an internal `trial by fire’ period that lasted 3 weeks (every Friday).. where I was throwing my `authority’ about, and Maureen and the whole coven spent hours and hours talking and debating and discussing with me.. (Ritual kept getting postponed 3 weeks in a row). Each Friday we’d gather at 7pm and the talks went on till early hours…Exhausted we’d either sleep over or go home.. at 2..3..4..5am and next Friday gather again..and it would carry on. None of us ran away.. None of us disrespected one another..but they all stayed…to help me understand some fundamentals.. of how to become a Good coven leader! And its never about exerting authority or teaching the highs and lows of magic. It’s about serving!!

In the end I learnt a valuable wisdom.. that a Coven leader does sit on the tip of a pyramid.. not at the top like a boss stepping on Initiates below. But the inverted pyramid tip at the bottom.. holding the weight of the entire coven and all the members.. and serving them!!

I once tried to offer my 1-2-1 ritual help to a wiccan and was told that am being possibly divisive and power-over. Another time a wiccan wanted my sword, and then wanted me to fight her. When I backed off, I was told by Maureen that I had dishonoured the member.. and as HP, I needed to heed her wish and battle her so she can work through her own issues ..

Coven running is never easy. Looking after initiates and trainees is never straight forward. Each person and indeed each event/ situation is unique.

And we struggle.. we struggle on and on .. to do what I often say.. `the right thing’ !!

I pick just these mere 2 situations to make a simple but profound point. That Since those days..I have worked really very hard… to serve!! Be it Pagans who contact me or wiccan initiates or trainees. Along the way, I have had to make sacrifices.. it has even once cost me a relationship.

And here I am again.. with a number of Wiccan initiations in the horizon, juxtaposed against the well-being of my personal life, the interest of family, partner, other initiates and more.

It’s painful at times.. times when the timing of crisis is never good.. Times when we have to put aside our breaking hearts and taunted minds, and reach for inner truths guided by our gods…and do the `right thing’. Yes we all agreed at our initiation that “we are willing to suffer to learn” but sometimes.. it’s just a near impossible situation. No one else will understand.. and everyone will try to criticise you or pull in different directions and loyalty-battles.

Do you know what… ? I’ve had this for over 20 years in my role as High Priest. This is not the first time… and this won’t be the last time. And I marvel at the Elders of The Craft who have been doing it for 30.. 40.. 50.. 60 years.

In Wicca, at initiation, we gain 2 titles.. Witch & Priest / Priestess. At first it may seem like some cool titles.. that we can flash about for added credibility on social media or some TV interview. BUT those titles come with heavy responsibilities.. The first part (Witch) is a magical one.. The other – `Priest / Priestess’ is one of service! Serving our Gods & Goddesses, serving people.. and serving the land.! In the 2 decades of my time as High Priest, since those Maureen coven days, I’ve never ever forgotten that.. !

Jupiter-Pluto Conjunctions of 2020

The Jupiter-conjunction-Pluto in Capricorn is happening  three (3) times in this year 2020!    Anyone who knows evening the slightest bit of astrology knows that (a) Conjunctions are really powerful and (b) when something involves Pluto, it’s going to be deep, intense.. and ultimately transformative.   And there is a (c) too..  that when Jupiter is involved, there are beneficial forces at work!  Let’s look at some details:

jupiter pluto 2020
Astrology Forecast: Triple Jupiter-Pluto Conjunctions in 2020  (c) http://www.QuantumPhoenix.net   Esoteric blogs by Mani Navasothy

When? 

The Jupiter-Pluto-conjunction occurs  on 5th April 2020,  then the planets go retrograde.  During this phase, they conjunct again, on 30th June.   The planets slip far back in the sign of Capricorn… (Jupiter goes backwards to 17 degrees Capricorn, and Pluto back to 22 degrees).   They slow and stop..and start to go direct.  Pluto first then Jupiter. As Jupiter is a further back but a faster moving planet than Pluto, it eventually catches up to Pluto and conjuncts on 12th November for the 3rd time..

(note: Jupiter leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius on 19th December.. where it then conjuncts Saturn in Aquarius on 21st December..  but that’s a stellar story for another blog).

The graphics shows exact dates when Jupiter & Pluto make certain `events’

Where?   All of this is occuring in the sign of  Capricorn the mystical sea-goat (ruled by Saturn).  Capricorn is an Earth sign..  Jupiter is fiery and Pluto.. well, Pluto rules the deep, the unconscious, the underworld!

Who? 

So who will these transits affect or influence?  Short answer is…*everyone*   Long answer..   Well, As all this is happening in Capricorn, that sign is the meeting-ground.  Jupiter rules Sagittarius, and Pluto rules Scorpios.  So those signs will be strongly affected too.  But then,   the position of Capricorn will be a particular house’ position for each individual.  For some it will be their birth sign, for others it’s their 2nd house (wealth, values),  7th (relationships, partnerships), 10th house (Career, fame) and so on..  Capricorn will be one of the 12 houses for any one of you.  So that particular sector of your life will be the one most transformed by these 3 repeated aspects.

Not only that – but on your own natal chart, look to see what house encloses the signs of Sagittarius & Scorpio.  Those houses will be affected for you personally.

How? 

A conjunction blends and combines the energies of both planets involved.   As Capricorn plays host to this conjunction,  the energy of Capricorn will be added to the mix of Jupiter & Pluto..   Expansion, farsight, distant travel, higher learning, religion, law, Justice, gambling, impulsivity,  risk taking, flirting & romance are some qualities to bear in mind for Jupiter.    Intensity, secrets, probing, manipulation power, control, sexuality, others’ money, death and rebirth and ultimately transformations are the energies that Pluto brings to this conjunction.   And as you can see…the  combinations and permutations of these energies are very many indeed.

It all depends on what you are open to, how far you are willing to work with some of the energies, influences and issues that are surfacing..

You won’t just get one chance but three!   The weeks and days leading upto the first occurence of this conjunction will raise up deeper issues.  Rather than fearing them, start to acknowledge hem to your self..and work through them…resolve them..  integrate them.

By the time the conjunction has occurred a 2nd  time (especially as both planets are retrograding),   you may feel your best laid plans of dealing with these issues are all gone awry..   That may result in frustration, more fears, avoidance, obsessions, escapism, addictions, harming others or self-harming, destructive habits, manipulative habits and more. Or you may simply feel like or actually cut and run away..  avoid issues, take more risks,  loose your temper.

Dabbling in the occult or dark magic may take you in unsafe directions..  and endanger self or others.   Guard against falling prey to outside cult or occult influences.

Small things may trigger you into acting disproportionately, or exaggerate reactions, blow things out of proportions.  The negative traits of Jupiter & Pluto may take hold.   Usually during a triple-repeated conjunctions, the mid-point is very trying..  where nothing makes sense, and control and plans are gone..  and you may feel compelled to act in nonproductive ways..

That will be the time to work very hard at staying calm.. to stay grounded and centred..  to do more personal work of spirituality or psychology.  Also a time to keep safe with tried and tested methods, people or places..  Stay safe..  but let go of expectations.

When such powerful planetary energies are at play, trying to become clever, trying to manage it, employing short cuts rather than working carefully and sincerely through the issues raised to surface is not going to work in the long term.

Between the 2nd and 3rd occurance of the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction..ie between 30th June and 12th November  – Do The Work!!    Be genuine..  and hold faith the fact that this is ultimately beneficial aspect and the transformation – once slowly and deeply achieved – will benefit you for decades to come..  for we will not live to see this similar aspect again in our lifetimes.

It may interest you to know, I myself will be strongly affected by these aspects..  (one of those planets rules my birth sign!).  And there is one thing I have learnt about the influence of stars in my life.  I can not cheat it by knowing about it in advance..  (I’ve tried in the distant past). So I myself will be trying to take some of this advise for me… And as more insights and far-sights surface, I’ll be sure to blog them/ add them here.

Magic & Spirituality

Of course there is one matter I have not mentioned so far..  Well I have in an indirect way.   The cheating!

Many believe all of our lives  and all that we do are `fated’ – that is to say predetermined by Fate or God or Goddess or universe, and we do not know but our futures are all set in stone.    BUT an equal number of people believe that we humans have Free Will..  and that we are the Masters of our own destiny & futures.   And certainly,  those who practise Magic believe that we have the ability to influence and choose our future in a direct and esoteric way..  !

So I like to add a few suggestions..in the way of tackling the conjunctions coming, (well by the time you read this, the first of the conjunction will be happening..  I am writing this `under their influences already’ and that was intentional.  I could have written this 2 months ago when i first mentioned it..but I wanted to get a better handle on the energies brewing..so I could write it better..  and I am.   I trust that as the aspect brews, it’s inspiring me to write the most relevant words and thoughts..   The fact that I have never taken this style of writing an astrological blog is evidence of its influence..  as I didn not even think to add magic & spirituality to this blog.

To those suggestions then..

Work with some God forms and archetypes..   Learn about the gods and myths of Zeus and Jupiter..  and even a little of Thor and Vishnu (all are connected to Jupiter!)   Learn and work with Pluto / Hades Lord of the Underworld..  Work with Shiva the dancing form (destroyer).   And work with Saturn.   Those are the energies at work here.  and tuning into them more will help.

Though trying to control the outcomes of these aspects is likely to backfire..  doing some constructive planetary magical works can be productive.

It is a powerful time of transformation and expansion – though it may not seem that way.   dig deep, or pierce the wounds ..  clear the hole of clutter, and dross, and drain puss from old wounds..  Let it all heal..  and ready the ground and plant new seeds and dreams.  These will grow into glorious new tall trees… Their roots will go deep..as their branches will spread far and wide..  beyond th small horizons you were ever used to before.

Saturn enters Sagittarius (2014-2017).

Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions of 2020 (in April, June, November)

Share strength..! Share Positivity..!! Share Hope..!!!

Share strength..! Share Positivity..!! Share Hope..!!!

I know some people have a fascination or obsession with death.. BUT Can people STOP sharing death tolls ..minute by minute  on social media?! It’s not helpful to anyone who has anxiety, panic attacks, mental health issues etc. Keep your selves, your loved ones and friends safe & sane.. Social isolation does not mean you can spread fear and panic by calls texts and social media.. especially to people who are already in isolation & delicate mind-states or unwell!!

If any of you are suffering these, then please call the NHS help line.. Don’t infect your friends with your own panic!

Don’t share fear, panic or despair.

If you are a magical person, you know that planting these in your mind or other people’s minds is only going to manifest these realities even more.. That is if you *really* believe in magic, and not take it up as a social fad.

So do the magical community..and indeed the human race a big favour. Save the human race by giving it positive seeds to manifest in its subconscious Collective.

Put your belief and magic into strengthening your mind powers, your cell-immunity, and personal healing powers (while still following National medical health & safety guidelines !)

Share Strength & Smiles..!
Share Positivity & Empowerment..!!
Share Hope & Faith ..!!!

Belief in the face of fear! (Corona-Virus reactions)

Belief in the face of fear!

I run a number of outdoor events event month.. and am also part of teams that run bigger events. In recent days there’s been an escalated numbers of  cancelling  or postponing of events coming up in next few months.. !   There’s great uncertainty..  Fear of catching the virus/ infection ..and indeed an unspoken but most certain fear of death looms everywhere.  All very understandable..

Yes absolutely ..we must be responsible.. follow advice by experts, authorities and government (though they did take a very idiotic approach early on …one that is now shifting ).

But I also believe that as `magical practitioners’ some of us are in community care  (priest/ priestess) roles and have to become beacons of hope and faith…(mind you, not blind faith!).

Cancelling events is necessary!  But so many things are disappearing fast –  things that people depended on as ladders and constructs to get through days and weeks in the past..   like looking forward to events, socials, shopping, just meeting a friend or even a loved one across town.. !   In addition to the obvious but perhaps unspoken fear of personal death or loosing a loved ones, there’s also now  perhaps an unsaid deeper feeling of defeat.. despair and desolation!

On a magical level, this is a disaster for the  human collective.

Our fears and emotions sink in to the collective, and start to take root like dark seeds..  and they *will* manifest more of that darkness and despair..  if this negative cycle is not arrested.

From an events point of view, short of government law passing on militant curfews, there has to be – not large scale- but small events running here and there .. with plenty of safeguards put in ..  so that they can act as the right kind of light & magic into the heart of the human / esoteric collective.. !

If a little creature like Virus can bring us to our fearful knees… let us  learn to respect Gaia… but we can also turn to our great `mind and magic over body’ powers ….really start to believe it and practise it.. I propose we keep doing magical work on our bodies.. send the magic inwards..to every cell.. and keep them healthy and strong..

It’s time to believe that true magic is within. The upcoming triple Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions in 2020 show us how the wider horizon and the microcosm are connected..

How to Shield yourself from 5G wifi

shield yourself from wifi 5G - blog Mani Navasothy
shield yourself from wifi 5G – art & re-blog by Mani Navasothy. http://www.QuantumPhoenix.net

I myself used to carry a mobile in my front trouser pocket or belt clip for over 10-12 years… and about 5-6 years ago went through the painful period of having cysts in my testicle.  Sitting was painful, so was sexlife with my then partner. After much scan, vitamin C, some other herbal remedies, wearing loose comfortable trousers, and stop carrying mobile in my pockets (still do occasionally out of habit!), the cyst went away…(Thank heavens).  But it was a wake up call.  As a guy with a physics degree, I don’t need any more telling to know that anything that’s emitting any sort of Electromagnetic waves (EMF) that’s constantly bombarding my groin, belly and testicles is no good ..especially if i want to father children in the future.

I also realise ladies carry mobiles in bras. Men carry them in coat/ breast pockets.   Those are close to heart, breasts..   The heart works on the control of our natural pacemaker..which sends short regular electric pulses to contract the heart.  Do you really want to be bombarding it with additional EM radio waves that can interfere> And do you really want to cause cells in breasts to warp and cause mutations/ overgrowth…what we call Breast cancer?

So here we are… some simple safety precautions..  And for those who are a bit more esoteric, this blog pieces also has additional ideas..  like Crystals and Earthing works.   But you don’t have to take all that..  Just do the simple obvious thing first..  keep mobiles many inches away from the body!

How To Shield Yourself From 5g

Since there’s little chance of a significant shift in how these types of technologies are tested and approved, the only thing we can do is prepare for the onslaught of radioactive frequencies. If we research like scientists and establish protective plans, we can mitigate EMFs and their effects on our health.

Here is a comprehensive list of how you can protect yourself:

PURCHASE EMF SHIELDS: Purchase an EMF shield, and continue to measure the levels of radiation within 100 feet of your home. Research all the consumer products in this category so that you can protect yourself as much as possible.

STAY EDUCATED: Continually educate yourself about the wireless industry and the global, governmental support of this insane endeavor.

TECH TIME-OUT: Refrain from using your cell phone for long periods of time, including never keeping your cell phone in your bedroom. If possible, keep your mobile devices five to ten feet away from you. When traveling with your cell phone, store it in an EMF protective bag.

BE PROACTIVE & STAY OUT OF FEAR: Remain positive and strong, and continue to improve your vibration through positive thinking, forgiveness, and with increased attention toward mental, emotional, and physical health.

LEARN TO GROW YOUR FOOD: Food born from our soil can improve our vibrations. Our vibrations are akin to electromagnetic fields because they birth fields of energy and light that inhabit and surround our bodies, which can protect us. Many enlightened masters have said that it is time for the pendulum to swing the other way, in that, we must learn to break our dependencies on manufactured food. We must learn to grow lettuce, potatoes, carrots, fruit, and more. Amma, The Hugging Saint, once said to me, “To start, learn to grow enough food for one day per week. Over time, you can learn to do more.”

LOVE: Focus on loving yourself and your family. Love has a profound effect on our health. It also can shield us from darkness, negative energy, and quite possibly, EMFs. Spiritual masters have been embodying love for centuries. A few examples include Jesus, Mother Mary, Buddha, Guanyin, Krishna, Amma (there have been many), Lau Tzu, Guru Nanak, Paramahansa Yogananda, and many more.

EAT SUNLIGHT: We often forget how powerful sunlight is for our health. In addition to Vitamin D, super powders and supergrasses can drastically improve our energy, immune systems, emotions, and overall health. They’re infused with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Try some of these and monitor how your physical and emotional bodies improve: Barley grass, Chlorella, Alfalfa herb, Wheatgrass, Moringa (drumstick/horseradish tree) and Spirulina. The nutrients found in these powerful foods can quickly improve our health and vibrations.

SUPERFOODS: Superfoods can quicken your healing and improve your body’s ability to protect itself. Here are some of the most nutrient-filled vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds on planet earth: kale, Swiss chard, collard greens, turnip greens, spinach, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, green tea, eggs, turmeric, garlic, ginger, lentils, peas, peanuts, alfalfa, pecans, pistachios, walnuts, cashews, Brazil nuts, macadamia nuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, flaxseeds, hemp seeds, kefir, yogurt, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, and seaweed.

EARTHING: Spend at least two hours in the forest every week. Trees absorb our negative energies, improve our immune systems, and nourish our hearts and souls. Hugging a tree and walking barefoot in the woods can change your health, mind, attitude, thoughts, and intentions, and therefore, your current life-trajectory. Connecting with the earth in this way feeds our meridians and electromagnetic systems, which in turn can protect and empower us.

CRYSTALS: Consider purchasing Orgonite, which reportedly scatters electromagnetic fields and turns them into beneficial ones. Dr. Wilhelm Reich developed this unique composite. Elite Shungite is an equally powerful, EMF resistant stone. Crystals, gems, and stones are living beings. Talk to them, love them, infuse them with light – and they will do the same for you.

CHOOSE YOUR HOME WISELY: If possible, do not live near a cell tower or mini-station. Also, get involved in local politics so that you can learn about all of the potentially dangerous plans your city council has in store for you.
