Sinking into Cyberspace..!!

You all know I have a Physics degree/ tech background and into all the multi-media stuff. Am also very much about nature & spirituality..and striving for tech-free time/ balance in life.

Everything is becoming hyper-real and accelerated these days.. What’s the hurry..? where do we have to get to so fast? Mars? Uranus? Death? Reincarnation? Oblivion?!

We are tumbling through our lives, transplanting & embedding our minds and emotions more and more into Cyber realms.. living our lives there too..and forgetting the shadows taking shape in the Collective.. Am not talking hypothetical. Am talking thought-forms, spirits, wraith and cyber-psychic entities (there I just invented a word).

Yes people are supposed to be connected..but NOT to 100’s or 1000’s.. however superficial that might be. At those levels, individuality blurs and gets lost. If that’s what you want..fine. :-/

There’s another danger too!! When any more than 1-2 people gather in a group, a group shadow forms within that small collective subconscious.. and it gets projected out onto its members and outsiders.. One becomes the hero another the black sheep.. Have we forgotten `Lord of the Flies’ that we all read in primary school English?! Imagine the fears, phobias, whims, wants, power-struggles, egos and other secret obsessions within each of our minds..spilling into social media..along side our posts and pictures and status updates…sliding past any obvious `filters’ and privacy settings. It’s all gathering..coalescing..in the darkness of cyber-realms that we can’t see.. And it’s reaching out tendrils to feed.. !

Those of you energy-sensitive must have realised the shifts and tremors by now surely?!!

It is really time to slow it down.. and not fall for multimillion dollar companies’ strategies, marketing and the euphoria of quick adrenalin fixes (event junkies!). Yes I know, the fear is of not getting left behind. The curiosity is in wanting to know everything. But instead of food & drinks ..we are now consumers of pixels and info bytes. It’s feeding mass amounts of useless junk into our minds on a daily basis.. Yes humans have some 80-90% brain space unused. But it;s not a hard drive to be filled with junk.. is it? There are mysteries of the mind that we can be working to unlock.. That all requires silence and stillness ..not more electronic pixellated noise!

So.. take stock now.. as I am.. !! It’s not a static process.. We’re going to have to regularly take stock and balance our cyberlives with physical lives.

Phoenix Magic – dreams, thoughts and warnings!

Few weeks ago, I had a dream.. of an ordinary bird in a cage.. that was stuck in a stuffy room… and dying!  I took the cage (and bird) and left it out in the sun. But later when I checked, the bird looked dead.. and feared it was over exposed to the heat of the Sun! I brought it indoors, and tried reviving the bird by carefully blowing small bursts of air into it’s open beak! And it recovered and stood up..   Now the Dream analysts amongst you will no doubt easily work out much about the mind-set I was in 3 weeks ago by working out aspects of this dream.  (It was few weeks ago.. I’ve moved on now 🙂

Apart from the symbolisms of being stuck by life’s confinements, there is another message here.. that of the bird needing air, getting it..but over exposure to life giving energies of the Sun..and almost dying..and being revived. And of course me and the bird are one.. (or so Psychologists will say, when pulling apart such dreams). It took me a few hours after waking, to suddenly get the insight..  It was the Phoenix of course.   And I have only been using that as a username or online identity for a decade or so..  So in a round about way, the bird and it’s journey and revival is also about me.. which ever way you look at it.

So that brings me to Phoenix magic!

I have been doing various forms of dragon-magic for nearly 16-17 years, but started Phoenix magical work about 10 years ago..  as part of some angelic magical work (Arch angels) in a then-coven environment.  At the time, my magic involved invoking the phoenix energy for financial security. But looking back on it, it’s clear..   The few years that followed saw me first loosing the job I was in..  (earning less that ÂŁ12,000 per year), doing all sorts of voluntary work (Events Organising for Pagan Federation’s London District)..  and eventually getting a Project Manager job in a Charity that gave me almost ÂŁ25,000 per year!

This sort of thing has happened again..  whenever I have done any sort of Phoenix magic..  Things that are targeted for magical work (areas of life) initially crumble almost all the way to the ground level..  life seems bleak..   and then out of that emerges a newer stronger way of life!

And I seem to be in one of those regeneration phases currently.. and the dream merely confirmed it few weeks ago.

Warning:

So my advise for anyone wanting to dabble in any kind of Phoenix magic – really, truly, beware of where your life is at…and that things will get drastically bleak.. first ..before improvements can be seen. It won;t just happen over night either. It may take anything from 3-4 months to even 2-3 years!!   I can not stress these points hard enough.

Astrology

By the way, in astrology, this death & rebirth / transformation is governed by the planet Pluto (and major transits to the sign Scorpio). We currently are in the middle of a 4 year period where the harsh aspect of Pluto-square-Uranus is taking place …in total 7 times, between 2012 to 2015. (link to that blog here).  So whether we like it or not..  the whole world is under that transformative influence..  (we’ve had that aspect twice last year.. and it will happen twice this year in 2013..  in May and in early November…so be warned).

Tarot

In tarot, the death and rebirth transformation is symbolised by the Tower card – where the divine light(ening) strikes the top, and Tower falls..  so that using its components, a newer better one may be built.

I’ll close this with some of the Phoenix images I had created…from photos of real fires…and such.  The one on the left is a real photo… (no graphics or editing) and the one on the right is the slightly fleshed out graphics version ..

ps. This blog `QuantumPhoenix’ has been online for about a year and a half now, and strange that only now I have had the idea to talk about the Phoenix itself.  I suppose  better also start writing about Quantum Magic too  🙂
