A Theory of Evil: On the Collective, murderous instincts, Angels, Demons and Entities in between!!

Everything living has a survival instinct..and when a moment comes – to be killed or be killed, each must make a choice. That’s just biology. I also believe in the Collective unconscious, where all the minds are linked.. And that when we humans don’t deal with our emotions, repress them, we sink those shadows deep into the collective..adding to its murky waters..
It follows that every killing instinct everyone has all adds up.. every hurt person who wants to lash out at their offender.. can seek revenge by hurting back or repressing or dealing with that (process it and transform it).
Now I think that some of us are strong willed enough to sink our repressed feelings and instincts…and get on with life. But some poor sod (person) out there who has no strength of Will…but is connected to the human collective…will have a weak `flooring’ through which the repressed collection of harmful instincts will erupt out.. !!
In short, what we repress comes out in someone else.. and they become the villain…the abuser..the killer..the rapist..the murderer!
This much I have formulated/understood and believed for over a decade and a half..(since 2001 when i started learning transpersonal psychology and blending it with my own spirituality and beliefs). ps. I call this my `Volcano theory of human shadows!’ (that the visual I get).
When we are faced with such a villain, it’s easy to brand him/ her as utterly evil.. It’s humanly impossibly not to hate or vilify that person. I personally would fall for that every time.. ! We would even call that person `Evil’ . But i try to accept that…that person is only a conduit for the sum of all our own darkness and shadows!
As for Evil.. I actually don’t think there is such a thing.. shockingly!!
But there is a selfish drive in all of us..all beings..including the spirits..that were once human or animal..or were never born as such. I don’t think that dying somehow removes some of these selfish or self-preserving drives.
It is my belief now (after the last 4 years of various psychic experiences)..that the spirit world is full of creatures.. entities.. everything from ghosts of a dead worm and insects to humans..and some forces we come to call angels.. even Gods! everything wants to survive..to go on..to keep its identity. They will do this however way they see fit.. unless some altruistic feelings stop them from hurting other beings. The dead worm’s spirit will keep on trying to scour for `food’ (energy).. and that can be coming from vampiristic / leeching from humans who are living..
And the `Angels’ won’t steal from us..but try to aid.. As for Demons.. they are probably larger beings who act on their drive for energy and power ..and may temporarily `work’ to aid some humans..but in the end ..their motives are entirely self-serving.
Well..this is the grand theory/ belief I have constructed for myself over years.. and this is probably the first time I have put it all in one go..in one place.. (these exist in copious hand written notes in paper…and spill out when i give talks or workshops..in pieces)

The above was written in answer to a friend’s question about do I believe people can be evil or who they become by following a path.
That question arose in answer to my post :
Angels & Demons in our minds and magical works:
It puzzles me.. why, when we have so many hundreds if not thousands of Godforms, Angelic forces, fairies, dragons and nature spirits.. do some people leap off and seek Devils & Demonic forces to work with?
I don’t accept the explanation that they are working with their shadows. If that’s the case, the first option is a Therapist, a counselor or a Psychiatrist!
The only explanation I can think of is…those others believe that their work with `demonic forces’ is somehow more fundamental or more powerful …than any other forms or forces..such as Gods & Angels!
Millions if not billions of people around the Globe get on with their lives, without it, and at best they call on a God or Angel…more so than a demon!
Never mind them…I myself have got this far in life.. by working with Gods and Goddess forms, and perhaps some angelic energies. When certain entities are trying to intrude, a simple `Om Shivaya’ chant has been more than enough to stop it. Perhaps it’s the Gods..perhaps its my belief in the Gods.. that gives me this advantage over unknown forces. It’s safe to say, my work will always be with the light, while I carry on illuminating my own transpersonal shadows.

Tamesis Full Moon Ceremony – London- river Thames (31st Jan’18)

Let us come together and honour the Lady of the Moon, Goddess Isis – mother of Mystery & Magic, and Father Thames, and Tamesa the Serpent of London.. and blend it all and do magic at the Heart of London.

We are beginning a new cycle of Thames-based rituals in 2018, following their popularity. This time, we’ll be adding more magical aspects to these easy-going rituals – bringing Goddess Isis as a focus (Thames-Isis) and Father Thames, as well as exploring some Serpent/ Dragon magic (Thames is often seen as a giant water-serpent snaking through heart of London), and we’ll be adding eco-magic for well-being of London. All these are elements we have explored before, but now as a regular component of these Thames-based rituals.

TLC full moon 2018

No prior knowledge or experiences of wicca or ritual magic is necessary for you to attend this. Just come with an open mind. Be friendly and non-intrusive. Connect with others, and join in the ceremony.

Outline:

-Preparing space & setting up Altar.
-Run-through- delegate any roles. Brief Q&A.
-Enter Ritual space with reverence.
-Opening prayers and /or Meditation
-Consecrations
-Casting magic Circle
-Calling elemental quarters
-Energy raising
-Invocations / prayers to Deities (Thames-Isis & Father Thames)
-Magical work (Serpents/ Dragons/ Eco-magic / personal)
-Cakes & Wine blessing
-Closing & Grounding work
– Feasting, Socialising…

Suggested donation : £2 / £3 appreciated. Thank you.

Meeting point:

Gather outside the Green area of Tate Modern Gallery (main doors). We’ll walk down to the banks of Thames and do this ceremony. If you are late, just find the steps, walk down to river bank, and join us. We’re usually under the concrete over-hang/ sheltered space. Thames & Tides:

Our rituals tale place on the actual river bank…just few meters away from the water, but in a secluded spot..where there is usually some sand. We organise these Thames-rituals after checking Port of London authority Thames Tide time tables.. to take place at low tide.. (At high tide the entire river bank is under many meters of water!!).
On this evening, low tide is at 8.30pm. It takes several hours for tide to come in.. so after ritual.. if we notice the tide turning ..we still have plenty of time to pack up and go up the steps to street level.

Safety:
The steps are slippery. bank of Thames after previous tide will be full of new things and sharp objects. Take extreme care with your own health & safety. You are responsible for your safety.
**No children allowed**
**Unfortunately the location is not suitable for anyone with walking disabilities**

What to bring:

• Please dress appropriate for weather! (we carry on Rituals regardless of weather).
• Please bring food & drinks to share ( bread & cheese / humus are a good start) and any soft drink/wine that you like to share with others in circle.
• a torchlight is a good idea. Feasting/ sharing food & Drinks:

After the ritual circle on the river bank is completed, some people leave for home. Others stay behind to socialise. We tend to go back up to street level, to the grassy green area outside Tate Modern Gallery and socialise/ share food & drinks.. If it’s raining, we just go to the nearby Pub within sight.

Bright Blessings

On Pradosham, Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra & Rudraksha chanting beads

On Pradosham, Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra & Rudraksha chanting beads:

Pradosham (Prathosham):

Today is Pradosham – a special day for worshiping the Hindu God Shiva.
This happens twice a month.. a few days prior to full moon and new moon.
It is a day to worship and pray to Shiva, and seek the clearing of our karma, and release from the ever going karmic cycles of life-death-reincarnation-life-death-and on.

Myth of Mrakandayar:

It is said in Hindu myths that when a boy (Markandeyan) was born, his parents were told he will die on his 16th year. While they were happy to have a child, they were sad to know what is to come. However Markandeyar began to grow and became a devotee of Lord Shiva, and learnt the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra (among other things).. and used its power to seek Shiva’s help. And on his 16th birthday, when Lord of Death came for Markandeya, Lord Shiva appeared and warded off Lord of Death.and thus Markandeya was saved.

Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra:

Here is that Maya Mrityunjaya Mantra / Tryambakam Mantra / Markandeya Mantra:

“Om tryambakaṃ yajāmahe
sugandhiṃ puṣṭivardhanam
urvārukamiva bandhanān
mṛtyormukṣīya mā’mṛtāt”

It means :
1.Om, We Worship the Three-Eyed One (Lord Shiva),
2.Who is Fragrant (Spiritual Essence) and Who Nourishes all beings.
3. May He severe our Bondage of Samsara (Worldly Life), like a Cucumber (severed from the bondage of its Creeper), …
4: … and thus Liberate us from the Fear of Death, by making us realize that we are never separated from our Immortal Nature.
(note: meaning taken from http://greenmesg.org/m…/sri_shiva-mahamrityunjaya_mantra.php

shiva

Rudraksha chanting beads/Mala:

Hindus often use the Rudraksha mala (necklace) to chant the Mantras and count the number of chants.. It can amount to 108 times.. or 1008.. or several hundred Thousand times.. which takes purity and discipline over many days..weeks..months to complete.

Rudraksha beads are seeds coming from the Rudraksha tree.. It is said that Shiva once thought of the suffering and plights of people on Earth, and he wept for their suffering. His tears fell to earth and where they had landed the special Rudraksha tree grew..and so the seeds from that tree became a divine symbol of Shiva’s compassion for humanity. The seeds have many `heads’.. either 1, 2, 4, 6 ..12 and are expensive depending on how they are harvested and sold. (fakes abound too in the market).

Do’s/ Don’ts on Rudraksha:

Although people wear these beads and walk about like they are models on a religious fashion show.. the power of the Rudraksha beads is in total secrecy. Wearing it gives protection to the wearer. It must not be seen or touched by anyone else.. or when you have not bathed or eaten meat of any kind. also not during sex.. or if you have touched your genitals then don’t touch the Rudraksha. Also during chanting, you must not use index finger. You must not wear it and go to the toilet ..or ever place it on Earth (if you do all the hundreds or 1000s of chant powers you accumulate on it will be gone immediately and you have to start again). It’s protective power comes from not the seeds or mala (necklace) itself.. but in the way you use it to chant mantras many hundreds or thousand times..

If you must wear a Rudraksha beads as fashion item..to show how spiritual you are..fine.. but keep that set for show..and keep a more private mala for actual spiritual/ magical work..and follow the rules I have stated above..

I once wore mine in public…(only time) when carrying a Kavadi at a Hindu Chariot procession…dancing along the Durga Chariot for 4-5 hours. No sooner had that event finished.. I was putting it away..and my mala fell to the ground. So almost a year of work was gone.. I then reconsecrated it in sacred temple waters ..and rededicated it to Shiva and began using it for chanting again.. (moral of this is that… Gods grounded any public energies..and I had to reset!)

(I have much more say on this.. but it is intensely private..so plan to share insights only in a face to face course or workshop).

Upcoming Pradosham dates (2017):
-3rd & 17th October
-1st & 15th November
– 1st & 15th December

I had wanted to write about these 3 items for over year and finally here it is. 🙂

Last year for Shiva Rathri (night of Shiva) I organised a woodland fire ritual & chanting..but this year I went straight to temple.. However I hope to organise a Pradosham ceremony/ and/or a Shiva rathri ritual in the future..for those who are very serious about this work.

Om Nama Shivaya.
-Mani Navasothy

connect with me on facebook  www.facebook.com/ManiNavasothy

ps. incidentally when I did not know any mantra’s I started chanting with just `Om Nama Shivaya’ and gained great & immediate relief/ benefits, which led me to the Maha Mantra (Hare Krishna), Gayatri Mantra (Om Bhur Buvasvana..) and to this Mrityunjaya Mantra ..and many more.

 

Total SOLAR ECLIPSE- Monday 21st August 2017 (astronomy data & astrology charts & Eclipse Magic book offer)

We’ve already had the partial Lunar Eclipse a week and a half ago, and the counterpart ..  the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE occurs on this coming monday 21st August 2017.  (Eclipses always occur in pairs, separated by 2 weeks, and there are on average 2 pairs every year..).

I’ve downloaded the detailed Eclipse-diagram  from NASA website (Eclipse diagram/data (c) Fred Espenak – link at the bottom).

Total Solar Eclipse (21st August 2017) Details:

How long is this Eclipse?

Important point to remember is that, at any one location on the Earth, the actual Solar Eclipse is only visible for few minutes at most.   BUT it will be seen at different parts of the world at various times..  and at each part ..for slightly different duration.

Greatest Eclipse and its duration:

This is when the largest amount of the Sun is covered by the Moon..  and  takes place at 18:25 hrs  (Universal Time= GMT), and will be visible for 2min40sec, from a point in USA (Lat=26’58N.  Long=87’40 W).

Penumbral start & end of Eclipse:

There are two types of shadows formed by the Moon when it comes in front of the Sun..  ie the shadow that Earth Passes through.  Umbral shadow is the darkest part, where from under it, we see nothing of the Sun.  Penumbral shadow is a more lighter part, and we will see the Sun through it..

  • P1 : The Penumbral part of the eclipse will be first visible at  15:46 hrs   UT  (seen from pacific ocean at Sunrise).
  • P4:  The penumbral part of the Eclipse will be last visible at 21:04 hrs UT (seen from South America – before night falls locally there)

The Umbral  Eclipse data:

This is when the Sun is actually visibly blocked by a dark disc (Moon coming between us and the Sun).  In scientific  notations, we give this 4 sets of readings..  when it first starts (first contact/ start of Umbral Eclipse; 2nd contact;  when Eclipse begins to end; when final umbral eclipse fully ends.

  • U1 :  16:48 hrs UT
  • U2 :  16:49 hrs UT
  • Greatest Eclipse :  18:25 hrs UT
  • U3 :  20:01 hrs UT
  • U4 :  20:02 hrs UT

 NASA diagrams created/provided  by Fred Espanak, where all this data has been taken from:

Total Solar Eclipse 20th August 2017 - NASA diagram by Fred Espenak

Gif animation showing the visibility & times of the Total Solar Eclipse 21st August 2017 (by Fred Espenak of NASA)

Note:  The small dot at the centre is the exact location where the Total Eclipse can be seen at a particular time (Universal Time = GMT).   The larger grey/blue area shows the area from which penumbral eclipse can be seen at any particular time.  The dark sections of the Earth (on left and right) show the night time for those places.

Time: Remember all times are UT (Universal Time which is equivalent to Greenwich mean time).  so you must work out local time.  For example the dot first appears to the West of USA  (in Pacific Ocean area)  around 17:00hrs GMT..  This is actually sun-rise/ morning time for those who first see the Eclipse (if they were in the Pacific Ocean).

SE2017Aug21T

Visibility data for UK:

From these diagrams, you can ascertain that for us in United Kingdom, about 10% of this Eclipse will be visible around 19:00hrs GMT.

Astrology charts

Below is a general astrological chart I have created to show the positions of other planets & Zodiac signs, during the exact moment of this Total Solar Eclipse (Greatest Eclipse at 18:25hrs UT).

If you are interested in doing Esoteric / ritual magical work / energy work, during the Eclipses, I have written a workbook (probably the world’s first book on Eclipse Magic).  here’s the link to buying it.

**NEW** Wicca New Moon: Gaia-Selene Healing Circles in London (monthly, outdoors)

Dear all..

As of the coming new moon, we are starting a new monthly ritual circle in the woods.. Wicca New Moon : Gaia-Selene Circles. If the full moon is for bubbling cauldrons and magic brimming to the surface, then new moons are for seeds, intents, going deeper within for magical & psychic development, Healing & transformative work.

These Wicca New Moon Circles  involve taking time to connect to Gaia/Earth & trees, reaching inner stillness, peace and flow of magic, and the use of that magic for healing and empowerment. We began these Wicca new moon circles in May 2017, and as they grow and evolve, it is expected to form a regular group of people (and leading to a possible training Coven).

Facilitator:

These circles are facilitated by Mani Navasothy – initiated Wiccan High Priest, with over 21 years of The Craft & Coven experiences including training and initiating Wiccans.

suggested Fee: £3

The tutor travels from south London to run these events, by popular requests for events in North London. Fees collected therefore go towards travel & costs of running this event (candles, spell craft items, cakes & wine for blessing etc).

At these events, the following will be covered : 

• Gaia meditations.

• Personal Energy work (varies)

• Wicca New Moon Ceremony

• Some Wicca Basics practise  (Consecration, Circle, Elemental quarters)

• Healing & spell craft (Subject to development)

Your attendance:

You may attend once or regularly and gain benefit for your self, and/or do healing work for your friends & loved ones (ask them permission first please..).

Or you may simply attend and gain grounding, centre the self, and energising your self.

These monthly gatherings will open with a basic wiccan consecrations & circle set-up, then extend into meditation, chant, and finally extended Magic & Healing works at hand; Be also open to working intuitively.

Attend with an open mind and a trusting heart.

As these are evening events in the woods, please dress warmly, possibly with water-proof clothing.

Bring a blanket for wrapping as there will sections where we’ll be seated and be still for meditative parts;  Also bring a cushion and a small picnic blanket to sit on for comfort (often the ground can be damp.. ). Bringing a small flask of hot drink for your self will be an added bonus.

Note: Initially, these monthly Wicca New moon Gaia-Selene circles will run from  May’17 for 3 months and continue into Autumn/ Winter,  subject to further interests.

Venue:

Queen’s Woods, north London (nearest tube: High Gate – northern line).

Meeting point :

Please be in the garden area of The Woodman’s Pub, Archway Road –  We will all walk together (15 mins) to a suitable spot in woods for the Wicca Circle. (exact woodland location may change on the night. So please meet at pub garden).

usual duration/ schedules (apprx): 

we meet at the woodman’s pub garden/ patio area from about 7pm.  Around 7.30pm we walk together (15mins) to the woods, via Wood Lane (com out of pub garden and turn sharp right ).  After communally setting up the sacred space & altar, we begin ceremony (8.30pm latest..).   Ritual ends and we begin tidy up/ leave by 10.30pm latest (or earlier). All times are approximate, and I try to be a little flexible- but due to it being a week day, we must try to be punctual s attendees can get home not so late usig public transport.

 

Note to Late arrivals:

Because we have to set-up, do ceremony and return by 10pm, we regret we can not wait for late-comers.

Future dates in 2017:

  • Monday 25th September 2017
  • Monday 23rd October 2017
  • Monday 20th November 2017
  • Monday 18th December 2017

Eclipse Magic: Full moon/Lunar Eclipse ritual 7th August 2017 (London)

Alert (16Aug17):   Total Solar Eclipse on 21st August 2017 – full details & chart on a new blog here https://quantumphoenix.net/2017/08/16/solar-eclipse-august-2017-data-charts-eclipse-magic-book-offer/

———————————————–

This is a special Full moon Ritual, scheduled to tap into the energy of partial Lunar Eclipse of 7th August 2017.

(please note: previously there was a workshop scheduled but it has been now changed to a ritual).

No previous experience of Eclipse magical working necessary. Eclipse Magic rituals are quite unique and separate ..and use practical tools (some modern ones such as a plasma-wand), astrological symbols/ names, some transpersonal work and magical visualisations.  These are all uniquely explored by Mani for many years (almost 20 years).

• Date:  Monday 7th August 2017

fee: £2.  

* this is the evening of the Full Moon/ partial Lunar Eclipse.  We will be setting some specific intentions to work the energies of the coming partial lunar Eclipse (in Aquarius).

useful astronomical data (from NASA):

• Penumbral Eclipse duration : from 16:50hrs to 21:50hrs (BST).  Umbral eclipse duration: 18:22hrs to 20:18hrs (BST). Greatest Eclipse is at 19:20hrs BST.    Ecliptic conjunction : 19:11hrs BST.

• Lowest tide: 21:20hrs (0.7m). [from Port of London site].

TLC Full Moon Ritual by Thames - summer 2017- lunar eclipse 7aug

 

Plan/ Times:

Your personal work  (suggested  7pm – 7.20pm)—————- :

Those interested in catching/attuning to the moment of `greatest Eclipse’  may wish to arrive early..find a quiet spot and do your own personal meditative work.  You may also be able to find a quiet spot by river..  though if it’ a very sunny warm day..  other Londoners will be out and about by Thames…!   As long as you personally are able to sit and ignore outside noise/  distractions..you can attune within.     I suggest you aim for personal meditative work between 7.00pm – 7:20pm.

Our group work  (scheduled   7.30pm to 10pm) ——————-

• 7.30pm- 7.45pm  :  Meeting outside main entrance (seats) by Tate Modern Gallery

• 7.45pm- 8.15pm :  Go down to Thames &  help set up altar area.

• 8.15pm – 9.50pm  : Main ceremony (leading into feasting/ social). – This will be the formal wicca circle set up and held on the river banks.  It will still be taking place within the penumbral duration of the Eclipse.

• 10pm- 10.30pm  : Socialising back at top – the Green grass area at front of Tate Modern Gallery.  

About Eclipse-Magic

The stellar forces of Eclipses are comparable to chaotic stormy seas – and knowing when Eclipses take place and what types of personal magic you can do, enables you to tap into those powers to accelerate, course-correct, enhance and empower your life!

Every Year there are at least 2 pairs of Eclipses (Solar & Lunar) – which means you can do Eclipse Magical works 4 or more times in a year! Some works can be done with only 5 minutes of effort, and others take a few weeks or even a few months of preparation. But all create intense changes over longer periods of time in your life.
This innovative, easy to use e-book gives full introductions to the Science, Astronomy, Astrology, Esoterica & Magical core concepts useful to all who like to experiment with Eclipse Magical Techniques. Mani Navasothy has been personally exploring these for over 15 years, and is now sharing his own secret techniques of using Stellar energies for Balancing, Cleansing, Powering Up, as well as the highly specialist methods of using Dragon Magic & Portals and Cosmic Gateways.

Eclipse Magic Workbook – by Mani Navasothy 

If you are interested in reading about ritual magical work you can do at Eclipse-times.. to tap into those hidden powers and potentials (more so than just a new moon or full moon)…then take a look at my book `Eclipse Magic workbook’  (it’s the world’s first book exclusively written on eclipse Magic!)

First few chapters give easy introduction for beginners to try eclipse magical work.  Later chapters give much more involved work..  that requires days of pre-planning.. (If you start now..  you’ll be ready to do the advanced work for the next set of eclipses!  There are at least 4 Eclipses (2 sets) every year!!

You can purchase the full `Eclipse Magic Workbook’   here for £18.00, and /or the Introduction books on Amazon  (search Amazon books for Eclipse magic!)

see you there.

Bright Stellar Blessings
