Rebooting Earth? Life is continuous!!

Stop this Earth Re-boot bollocks! Life doesn’t stop-start!!

Folks..am hearing a lot of bull about planet booting up again. Do you hear the language and concepts you are using? It’ all tech-computer-machine-stuff. The planet and life are continuous.

As much as many can’t cope with the way things are and are secretly looking and wanting signs.. for some sort of global re-boot.. only machines can be rebooted. If you want that for life…it’s death and rebirth.. reincarnations .. There is no re-boot for Life. You are alive or dead.

Yes many processes and ways of our lives have come counter-productive and detrimental to Ecology & environment and whole of Earth.. Those things need to change. But no addict ever got better by going cold-turkey. Change that is sharp and sudden always has a potential for relapse. Only mindful gradual change can be sustained.

Secretly wishing that we are all some machines that need rebooting..is a stupidity that has been doing the new age/ spiritual circuits for some years now.. I get that the mind cam’t cope with some things and leaps into escapism.. And if you truly stop to examine this reboot phenomena.. that too is a whimsical escapist fantasy.

So stop this nonsensical way you are brainwashing yourselves.. Life is continuous on Earth. There is no re-boot. Yes we have crisis and catastrophes sometimes.. and even extinction-level events in the history of Earth.. like meteor strikes, super-volcanoes, polar-magnetic shifts, ice ages.. Plagues have never been extinction level events.. (but they do take a toll of millions or billions of lives).

Don’t let all this internet / tech-adapted talk infiltrate your mind and your human-thinking and feeling.. Don’t become human-machines. Don’t use machine/ technical language to subtly alter you. We are Life. We are not machines.

Video: A Healing rite in Hern’s Tribe space

On 28t March, my shamanic group Hern’s Tribe were to meet in our usual woodland space  for ceremony and to observe Earth Hour.  But due to corona virus and national Lockdown / isolation guidelines,  our event did not go ahead.   It bothered me.   So few days later, i gathered enough Will power to go the woods (drove and avoided all people contact ..not many in woods anyway)..  Set up a basic altar and did this brief magical work of healing.

It is based on the Caduceus / twin serpent/ ankh shield I had painted several years ago. I  carved the same runes  on the pink candle used too..   The magic was done without filming..  The did a spontaneous evocation..  while filming this bit… starting with the Opening Prayer (wicca) . The video ends with an adapted Healing words (on screen.. not spoken.. )

Blessings. -Mani

Astrology forecast for end of March (26th-31st March’20)

Astrology for end of March ( 26th-31st March’20)
 
Hard to believe month of March is drawing to a close in 5 days.. Much has been happening. Just glancing at transits/ aspects.. I notice today we have had an aspect of Mercury-semisquare-Jupiter.. Perhaps some grumbles in thought processes or conversations about whats coming over the Horizon? Tomorrow Mercury-semisquares-Pluto.. I’d say despite initial stresses, listen to intuition, and especially for small things bubbling upto surface from deep within. Some secrets and manipulations might crack open.. which will be a good thing.
 
Then for 28th, 29th & 31st – some good aspects..
 
Venus-trines-Jupiter – most beneficial 2 planets forming the most beneficial d aspect. Please be ready to make use of potentials..rather than be stuck with negative-spirals.. or you’ll miss it. I can’t `stress’ this enough. Beneficial aspects are like lottery wins.. You have to remember to cash the ticket in..or that win is lost.
 
Venus-trine-Pluto is another brilliant one. Make or accept small changes that can have profound effects in relationships, partnerships, romance, wealth.. not to mention the arts and all things ruled by Venus. This is a highly transformative aspect.. Don’t waste it.
 
Mars-conjuncts-Saturn. : People or entities of authority will push forward with some assertive or militant plans. If you are the one in charge, push forward with your plans. It’s also a bit like a young warrior (mars) working with an old teacher/ politician. The future plans are in motion..
 
In early April, we come under the influence of the spectacular Jupiter-Trine-Pluto.. Well, it happens 3 times this year, and we are..as a collective, already under this brewing energy for some weeks now.. I’ll say more in another post ..soon.

Mindful Living & Loving during pandemic!

Mindful Living & Loving during pandemic!

Every moment has always been precious.. but till now many people had not realised it. Now suddenly, with their own fears and potential for death just around the corner of the next hour or day or week.. every moment has become important.. Because the next moment might be your last!

There are no guarantees … Anyone can catch this Covid-19 virus.. Anyone can recover..or anyone can die.. Young, middle aged, healthy, old or ones with existing medical conditions.. Practically anyone is a possible next victim..or if lucky..the next one to get immunity!!

At a time like this…take nothing for granted. Not the air you breath. Not the food you eat.. not the calls or contacts you make with another human (or pet).. or the hugs.. or kisses or smiles ..or tears. None of it.

We do not know if the last time we met someone…this morning or yesterday or last week is going to be the last time. They could die… or you could die.. or you might both survive!!

So take the moments seriously.. Be mindful of what you are doing. Don’t take your own fears or frustrations out on loved ones or friends. Let that be not the last thing between you.

Many are on isolation.. perhaps in different places.. different towns, cities, even countries. The phone calls and these online messages – facebook, whatsapp, emails, videos and messages are the bonds that keep people connected .. lovers, partners, parents, children.. Nearly all relationships of the heart.

As we know all too well.. the non-face-to-face communication is fraught with a minefields of misinterpretations!! One wrong word or sentence can end in a text-breakup.. or a family feud across continents..or a business falling apart!

Be Mindful…
Slow it down..
Be kind..
Be charitable..
Be compassionate..

Keep your humanity about you.
And we’ll survive this.. !!

Bright Blessings on this eve of an Aries New moon

Tears, Fears and secret Deals Devils. (aka. Reflections on Death!)

Tears, Fears and secret Deals with Gods & Devils.
(aka. Reflections on Death!)

Everyone is panicking..have their perfectly justified fears to process and overcome.. That’s human nature.. and I do wish all the best in this..and I keep waking up.. far away from some of my loved ones (sister & nephews.. partner & kids).. I try to do something useful and positive everyday.. for their sake.. and for my sanity…and for all my friends on social media.. And not once so far had I crumbled.. I’ve managed to keep my faith and belief..and shoulder others’ fears and gently support and empower them..

During a telephone call to my partner last night.. I was thinking about the kids being locked in house for months is going to drive the little kids crazy.. and their mothers insane!! I also thought about what I can do from afar.. buy play-stuff and send to them by post.. Do some fun videos ..and share with my nephews and partner’s kids.. Just some ideas. It’s all been fine. Spirits up.. motivations high.. Faith in future. Be a beacon of hope etc etc.

But today.. today during a drive, while thinking about making videos for our kids (possibly just a private channel) I was suddenly overwhelmed..and got tearful..!

What if…just a micro-nano-If.. that I don’t get to see them? These videos or whatever I send them might be the contact they get.. and the last time I saw them ..will have been the last time..

I’ve had 50 years …and been done and seen things…. Of course I want a bit more time with my loved ones.. But if it comes down to it.. I am expendable..

I know..I know.. I’ll get back to my positive self posting silly jokes again.. in a moment.. But just for a while.. am happy to sit with my own vulnerabilities ..and my fears.. and if it comes to it.. my sacrifices. Because.. despite our best hopes and faiths, there is a distant possibility.. of losses and pains.. And sometimes facing our shadows is better in the long run.

Some guy outside a shop was saying to someone else.. `if we are going to loose 50,000 people, let’s have it all tomorrow..and be done with it..’ That on the first instance is a horrible thought. But it is a knee-jerk reaction, with an underlying fear-filled heart.. He was just trying to make it safe for himself. (I just hope he factored in that he himself might be one the 50,000 he thinks should die the next day.. !)

But seriously, how do we choose.. ? (not that we have the option!) which 50,000 are going to perish.. so that rest of the 65 million can live? Let’s get dark.. What if each one of us is given the divine choice to pick someone to die ..that 50,000 of us are given that choice to nominate a name.. from our midst.. so that the nation of people can live. A trade off! Can we choose someone else … 50,000 someone else.. to die so we can live? Or will 50,000 of us step forward and say `we’ll offer ourselves to Gods & Fates, so that our loved ones may live? Which option will you take? what will you endure?!

It’s only March …not yet July.. and too early for Lammas sacrifices.. But pagans have had this concept embedded within us .. Mothers & Fathers, brothers & sisters ..have been making these deals with their Gods & Devils for aeons….to save their loved-ones! So these trade-off thoughts are nothing new to some of us.. (Yes even to me!)

Loss of lives may be a statistical reality under current circumstances but it is not an emotional option at all for me.. not at all!!

`Everybody Lives!’ As an esoteric magician .. that’s my goal… and my prayer!!

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..

Saturn transit through Aquarius begins (3 years)

Saturn in Aquarius – coming up (3 years!)

On Sunday 22nd March 2020, Saturn arrives in Aquarius! Wild energies will begin to be pinned down. Stability, endurance, authority & hard lessons take focus .. instead of erratics, rebellion for sake of rebellion, thrill-seeking, disruptive behaviours.

Saturn retrogrades in mid-May (in Aquarius) and will be out of Aquarius for a short period (2nd July to 16th December). That will be time to review the lessons that are previewed over the next 3+ months.

Then Saturn will transit through Aquarius.. from 16th December 2020 to 8th March 2023!!!

This is just a quick note – I’ll write more soon.. as Saturn works me hard.

Video: Wicca Circle casting by Priestess and Priest (Woodland Witches)

In a Wiccan ritual or any pagan Ceremony, creating Sacred space includes the casting of a Magic Circle – for safety and protection, and to keep the powers that are being worked with..so that magic can happen. Here we demonstrate the casting of a Wiccan Circle, with easy to learn words.

Traditionally, in a group or coven, the Priest hands the casting tool (a wand, an Athame or a Sword) to the Priestess. He then either steps aside or stands beside her and connects with her psychically and adds his energy . The Priestess channels his energy as well as her own energy to visualise and cast the magic circle (sphere). Traditionally they start at the North, move through East, South, West and end back in the North.

The Circle can then be sealed with a Pentagram. (In this video in may seem like a Earth invoking pentagram, but from the point of view of the Circle-casting Priestess, it is a Fire invoking pentagram). Once the Circle is cast, the Priestess hands the Athame / wand to the assisting Priest with a Kiss. He then places it on the Altar.

Then the magical work begins inside the Circle such as calling elemental quarters, raising energy, and invocation of God & Goddess, and more. (** Remember to ground the Circle once the full ceremony is completed!!!**)

(more videos demonstrating those will be uploaded soon).

Bright Blessings. -Mani & Louisa.
