Boji Stones

A set of Boji Stones

It is said that Boji Stones™ originate from only one place in the USA and they grow like mushrooms. Only one male stone grows for every seven females! The male is the rougher looking of the pair whilst the female Boji is smooth. They are best used in pairs but you will often see the females made into pendants.

The stones themselves are blackish brown in colour and a small flattish sphere in shape. Their size can vary from about the size of a penny up to almost the size of a golf ball. In our experience the average size is around that of a 50 pence piece.

You can also get Rainbow Boji Stones. These are as they sound in so far as they have rainbow colours running through them, most likely due to another mineral or crystal running through them. They are much harder to come by and much more expensive.

No one is quite sure what the actual mineral/crystal or chemical make up of the Bojis Stones are, which makes them even the more intriguing.

We find them fascinating and have also found that essentially although they are all the same, each pair seems to have a slightly different energetic quality. For example some will be much better at grounding whilst others seem to excel at opening the chakras. Other pairs have been excellent for physical healing. One man we spoke to had severely burned his arm, yet within two days of applying the Bojis regularly, the pain and blisters had almost disappeared, something that would generally have taken weeks to clear.

As mentioned in another piece in the Library about Chakras, Boji Stones™ can be used to balance the Chakras; in fact Boji Stones™ can help align and balance all the Chakras automatically. This means that positive energy will pass through each Chakra (normally from the Crown Chakra {top} to the Base Chakra {bottom}) and aid the release any blockages there may be. It may take more than one session to fully achieve this, although even one session will normally yield significant improvements.

If you are using Bojis for meditating and chakra work, we generally suggest that you place the male (rough) in the left hand and the female (smooth) in the right hand. This then has a balancing effect on both sides of the body and brain. If you are extremely out of balance this may feel uncomfortable, in which case use them in whichever way feels comfortable for you.

Brian’s thoughts:
Here I would like to share a few of my personal thoughts and experiences on using Boji Stones.

As well as using the Bojis during meditation I have used them in combination with other crystals to add a different energy to my healing/meditation sessions.

By holding a Boji in each palm and placing a crystal between the thumb and index finger of each hand you can greatly enhance the experience. There are many different combinations that can be used but here are a couple that I have used regularly:

  •  Herkimer diamonds – this greatly enhances the opening and linking with the crown chakra especially, and generally sends a blast of positive energy through each chakra along the way!! Do not try this is you are generally quite spacey; you will need quite good control of your energies before you give this one a go!
  • Black tourmaline – this really brings you back down to earth! It will also help disperse and release any blockages you have.

I will be adding more combinations to this section as I work with them; so do pop back from time to time.

As with any energy work always make sure you are grounded and centred in your own space (see the Grounding and Protection section).

Many websites or books that you read about Boji Stones will tell you that they do not need cleansing. Personally, I feel that any crystal or healing tool will always benefit from tender loving care and cleansing. Bojis in particular seem to like the ‘smoke method’. Please see my Energizing Crystals section in the Library for further information on cleansing and energizing crystals.

Crop Circles 2012 UK Review

For a number of reasons “twenty-twelve” was never going to be an ordinary year. For one thing it’s a year in which we’ve seen a very rare “Transit of Venus”, that many would argue links to acknowledge the last few days of a very old 26,000 year Cosmic Cycle, that’ll end in a few weeks time.

The Mayan Calendar that’s set to end on the Winter Solstice of the 21st of December has certainly not gone unnoticed by “The Circlemakers” over the years. This forthcoming event has received a lot of attention from them, even to the point sometimes that one would think they’re promoting it!  Not only has it inspired and prompted them to transmit some of the most powerful and cleanly executed designs we’ve ever seen, it also transpires that many hundreds of other formations that we didn’t think at first bore any connection to 2012, revealed many underlying one’s when unravelled…

mmm…Could this be why we’ve been on the receiving end of these almighty downloads over the years?…Is it their sole purpose to announce in a hundred different ways what might well be a significant life-changing event at the end of the year?

That might well be the case for we’re undoubtedly living within a period that’s known as the “End Times”. The guy that used to parade around the streets of the West End of London back in the 50’s and 60’s declaring on his sandwich board that “The End is Nigh” was probably right! But just what is about to end?…

It’s not only the Mayans that anticipated a forthcoming new era. Many other ancient and modern prophecies also suggested this, but whether it’ll take the form of a massive shift in consciousness or a direct hit from a massive comet remains to be seen! I personally think that any kind of shift will be more of a slow and subtle kind and something I feel sure we’re already partly experiencing.

As far as the crop circles are concerned they can never be read as doom-laden warning signs and I feel certain there not announcing a forthcoming doomsday scenario. They continually send us such positive and loving messages and they deliberately set out to give us the knowledge that’s necessary to create a different awareness. One of their prime concerns for those who are paying attention to them is to be ready for a huge change, but one that’s not to be feared. Crop circles have also played their part in helping to lift an engineered smoke-screen that we’ve been purposely subjected and indoctrinated into. We’ve been sold a reality that’s becoming more unsustainable by the day. With global food and economic disasters looming and with such widespread social and political unrest we’re firmly in the grip of the death-throes of these dark times.

Many thought that 2012 would be a really special year for crop circles. A year whereby there was bound to be a highly significant and outstanding bunch of circles that were all set to welcome in the new era. Some even thought that every field would get one! But despite all those longed-for longings that would see the most magnificent circles of all time appear, it came as no surprise that it really didn’t turn out that way. Don’t get me wrong though, 2012 was a great year and compared to last season everything was thankfully back on track.

July has always proved to be a busy month and we got off to a great start by having four formations arrive on the first! This particular one appeared near a busy section of the M4 near Swindon. It was a beautifully crafted “star tetrahedron”. Lots of fine lines were laid within the central triangle that were only a couple of stalks wide and certainly far too narrow to walk along.

Quite unexpectedly though this “star tetrahedron” which is also known as “Metatron’s cube”, changed into a “Star of David” three weeks later on the 21st.

As you can see from the photo phase two involved a number of sections within the triangles (that were originally composed of standing crop) were now flattened. Overall this formation that now had more emphasized inverted triangles offered us a simpler message of “As Above So Below”

If there was a competition for bizarre crop circle designs this formation would be a strong contender. But this depiction of a sort of squid-like sea creature or three fingered alien had quite a few surprises in store.  Seen by some as a joke when they viewed the aerial, they completely changed their minds when they visited it because it was so neatly laid with many a central swirl displaying sheer perfection.

A couple of days later this rather puzzling effort arrived that strongly resembled a crossword plan.  Were we meant to fill in the gaps with words in order to spell out a message? But if so, where are the clues and which way up and which way round should the puzzle be?

It’s also not dissimilar to those new types of bar-codes we now see more commonly but given the size of it laid out in a cornfield, you’d need quite a sizeable cosmic-gizmo to read it!

When you start playing around with the design though, you can at least come up with something…And whilst it’s not that important, at least it’s quite amusing. Place a mirror on one of the edges and the mirror image reflects either a little dog or an alien with a hat on!

This swirl of circles that appeared on the 31st of July was so rapidly cut out by a very angry farmer that photographers never stood a chance to photograph it. At first this design also proved to be a bit of a puzzle, but then it was discovered that hidden within it was a message written in binary 8 bit ASCII code.

Windmill Hill Diagram 2

Windmill Hill Sketch 2 (The Message) *

Reading from the inside to the outside we can read ASCII 80 (P) 69 (E) 65 (A) 67 (C) 69 (E) which amazingly spells out “PEACE”. Obviously this has to be a real message from “The Circlemakers”…I mean, what are the chances of the guys from the pub working this one out in the dark!

What’s also proved to be a bit more puzzling this year is that here we were at the end of July and rather surprisingly it seems “The Circlemakers” have hardly mentioned a forthcoming “new era”. After all isn’t it the crop circles that over the last decade or so, have been responsible for sucking us all into the whole 2012 thing anyway? And by specifically referring to the Mayan Long Count cycle in many of their jaw-dropping efforts in the past, haven’t they directly and purposefully seeded awareness that something really major is about to kick off?

The 2012 season didn’t really turn out to be the grand finale that many were anticipating but then maybe “The Circlemakers” are of the opinion that over the last three or four decades they’ve said it all anyway. Surely we must have worked it all out by now…So as far as their concerned what’s left to say?…

Cheesefoot Head Crop Circle

This beautiful formation uniquely symbolises an endless knot which perfectly expresses the way in which we should all learn to perceive reality. It illustrates that everything is interconnected and harmoniously unified and just like a drawn circle it simply tells us that everything’s eternal…For there’s neither a beginning nor an end to it. And so on this level and to use a much maligned phrase…we really are all in it together!

Hackpen Hill Crop Circle

Towards the end of the season there were some strongly influenced Mayan designs but none was as stunning in its form and ambition as this beauty that acted as a sort of season finale. It resembled a three-dimensional ringed cube that owed much of its design to its borders which were distinctly Mayan in character.

But whilst we’re in awe of such a grand design as it stands, we slowly become aware, like many of its predecessors, that there’s far more to it than meets the eye. To give just one small example…what’s the purpose of the thin line that’s inside the circle that borders the cube? The number four esoterically represents the Earth with its four cardinal points and if we look upon the cube on this occasion as representing the Earth, then might that line that strongly hints of another circle be trying to indicate the Earth’s position at a future date? The Mayan influenced cube also appears to point upwards so are “The Circlemakers” clearly stating that an imminent pole shift or a transition in consciousness awaits us?…Interestingly, researchers who have delved far deeper than I have arrived at the same conclusion.

In the words of the old Sam Cooke/Otis Redding song “A change is gonna come”…But look around and you’ll see it’s already happening and many people are now awakening to the disturbing realities of our world. The end of the Mayan Calendar on the Winter Solstice is a marker…a kick-start date for a change that’s inevitable. Mankind is awakening through the power of meditation and universal consciousness…and “The Circlemakers” that use our fields as a “Cosmic Bulletin Board” are assisting in that awareness. Our health and well-being is assaulted by genetically-modified foods and earth poisoning. Chemtrails and electromagnetic pollution are also contributors…so is it any wonder that cancer’s so common? Our Earth that supports us is a natural living environment but for how much longer under the threat of toxic oil-spills, nuclear disasters, deforestation, corruption, greed, and endless wars, can it possibly go on supporting us?

A change is going to come because it has to…it’s inevitable, even if a potential shift or any other such concrete event on the 21st of December fails to materialise. So far “The Circlemakers” have helped guide us towards a new era and I feel sure they’ll be around for a lot longer yet in order to encourage us to fully immerse ourselves.

And so all that remains for me to say is that with my positive thought that ever-more inspiring messages have yet to rain down upon us…long may they continue to reign!

Chakras

The Chakra Positions

Energy exists in all things in the known universe from human beings to the chair that you sit on. There are seven main points in the body where energy is obvious, these are called Chakras. The Chakra Points, to some degree, determine how you feel. Chakras are like vortices of energy that spin both from the front of our bodies and the back. These energy centres can get blocked and sluggish at times, therefore making certain aspects of our life or physical body feel the same way. They can also spin too fast and become overactive, this in turn can also cause imbalances on various levels. Therefore, what we strive to achieve is a nicely balanced chakra system, so that each centre is working at its optimum level for us to feel healthy and harmonious in all aspects.

It is important then to realise that you may not need to energise certian chakras or indeed that others will need far more enrgy at certain times. A qualified healer will be able to perceive what is going on in each of your chakras and would allow energy to flow (or work with colours, crystals and sound according to need for your highest good) By using your own intuition you can get a fairly good idea of what is going on in your chakra system and work with this accordingly. If in doubt seek further advice from someone that is experienced in this field. (See Sharon and Brian in the Directory section for Healing)

With a well balanced Chakra system you will feel fit, healthy and harmonious. When they are not balanced you may feel disorientated, uncomfortable and lethargic.

The Chakras can also help you to communicate with the spirit realm. By learning to open your Chakras you push your energy level out, which ‘opens’ you for spiritual communication, but you must remember to close your Chakras because staying open too long will cause unbalancing.

Each Chakra works best with certain colours. There are seven major Chakra points in our bodies and they are situated as so:-

The Chakra Positions

The Chakra Positions

  1. Red – is the BASE, situated at the base of the spine. It is like the roots of a tree that bury themselves in the very heart of the Earth.
  2. Orange – is the SACRAL, situated about two inches below the navel. A mix of red and yellow, the Earth and the Sun. This is a mixture that benefits both mind (the Sun) and body (the Earth).
  3. Yellow – is the SOLAR PLEXUS, situated at the upper stomach (about four fingers width above the navel). It works to influence your mental attitude, enabling you to be good natured, contented and happy in whatever you choose to do.
  4. Green – is the HEART, situated in the middle of chest. The colour of growth and renewal. Green is a good balance between mind and body, it brings serenity and calmness both to you and those you come in contact with.
  5. Blue – is the THROAT, situated near bottom of the throat. Blue is a very strong, healing colour. It brings calm, peace and a love of both freedom and togetherness.
  6. Purple – is the BROW, situated in the middle of the forehead (or slightly lower/between eyebrows). This deeply spiritual colour is linked to the Pineal Gland in the brain which is said to be a sensory organ. It enables the individual to see, hear, write and work with Spirit Guides.
  7. Violet/White/Silver/Gold – is the CROWN chakra, situated at the top of the head. This is linked to the Pituitary Gland that secretes hormones to other glands of the body. It also symbolises purity of mind and body and is the strongest link to the spirit world.
  • BASE CHAKRA
    Physically relates to – legs, feet, base of spine, bones, kidneys
    If imbalanced – unstable, insecure, hunger/weight gain, constipation, arthritis, spinal tension, knee problems
  • SACRAL
    Physically relates to – reproductive system, skin, spleen, bladder, lower intestine
    If imbalanced – jealousy, anger and other negative emotions, sexual problems, allergies, bladder
  • SOLAR PLEXUS
    Physically relates to – stomach, liver, digestion, nerves, muscles, gall bladder
    If imbalanced – fear, lack confidence, perfectionist, too much intellect, diabetes, ulcers, digestive disorders
  • HEART
    Physically relates to – heart, circulation, arms, hands, blood
    If imbalanced – emotionally unstable, inability to show or receive affection, critical, heart problems, high blood pressure
  • THROAT
    Physically relates to – throat, mouth, neck, ears, lungs, shoulders
    If imbalanced – communication issues, little discernment, ignorance, thyroid, ear, neck and throat problems
  • BROW
    Physically relates to – left eye, nose, nervous system, lower brain
    If imbalanced – cynical, fear, little focus/concentration, detached, headaches, eye problems/blindness, vivid/unpleasant dreams
  • CROWN
    Physically relates to – right eye, upper brain
    If imbalanced – confused, depression, lack of enthusiasm/inspiration, migraines, forgetful/senile, psychotic

Chakras & Colours

If we integrate the various colours that relate to each chakra, either through healing, visualization, clothes we wear, crystals etc.. we can go a long way to bringing about a balance within these areas. Below is a list of various colours and how bringing them into our related chakras can enhance certain traits/emotions and aid certain physical issues.

  • RED (Base) – grounding, stability, stamina, motivation, self – confidence, purpose, passion, excitement
  • ORANGE (Sacral) – joy, respect for oneself, release (of stored negativity), creativity, cheer, pick-me-up, happiness
  • YELLOW (Solar plexus) – cleansing, cheer, happiness, upliftment, ego, will(power), energy, focus, enthusiasm, self worth
  • GREEN (Heart) – balance, harmony, peace, abundance, love yourself, release (heart related emotions), growth/new beginnings
  • BLUE (Throat) – release of physical tension, communication, peace, healing, honesty, calming, cleansing, express oneself
  • INDIGO/PURPLE (Brow) – wisdom, protection, vision, responsibility, understanding, seeking, power
  • WHITE (Crown) – clarity, cleansing, clearing negativity, universal energy, has all colours within it, pureness

OTHER COLOURS:

  • PINK – sensitivity, compassion, unconditional love, nurturing
  • VIOLET – power, transformation, spiritual growth, freedom, cleansing, knowing (clairvoyance)
  • BLACK – absorbs negative, stability, protection, power, grounding,
  • TURQUOISE – healing on all levels, communication, immune system,

There are a multitude of ways to open your Chakras (energy centres). Some people can ‘open’ (tune in on a spiritual level) instantly, for others it can take several minutes. If you follow the simple meditation script, you will notice that it takes you through the seven Chakra colours from red to white. Visualising these colours going through the body will in turn open each Chakra. You can visualise the colours as lights, mists or whatever you feel comfortable with.

Once you have worked through these you will find it easier to work on a spiritual level. Don’t worry if it doesn’t feel natural or easy at first, as with all things the more you practice the easier it will become.

To cleanse the Chakras yourself (as opposed to using one of the crystals which can perform this task automatically) you can visualise yourself under a waterfall or in a clear pool, again, whatever you are comfortable with.

Once you have finished balancing and cleansing your Chakras you must remember to ‘shut down’. If you don’t close your energy centres you will begin to feel unwell and fuzzy headed. Closing the Chakras is the reverse process of opening them i.e. visualising white light enveloping you from the top of your head and slowly moving down to red, the final colour, at the base of your spine. Normally you would image yourself being wrapped in a red cloak or something similar in the final stage.
Chakra and Crystals.

The Chakras work well with crystals. By holding and receiving the energy of the crystals, you can open, close or balance your Chakras. Every crystal performs a different job so it’s worth checking with someone who knows before you decide which one is going to be best for you to use on each occasion. Here is a list of some of the crystals and the Chakras they best relate to:

  • Base – Garnet, Bloodstone, Ruby, Red Jasper, Black Tourmaline, Smokey Quartz, Obsidian.
  • Sacral – Gold Topaz, Coral, Orange Calcite, Amber, Citrine, Carnelian, Peach Aventurine. Moonstone
  • Solar plexus– Amber, Gold, Gold Calcite, Citrine Gold Tigers Eye.
  • Heart – Chryoprase, Emerald, Rose Quartz, Kunzite, Green & Pink Tourmaline, Green Jade, Green Adventurine.
  • Throat– Blue Topaz, Celestite, Turquoise Chrysocolla Sodalite, Lapis Lazuli, Aquamarine, Kyanite Blue lace Agate
  • Brow – Quartz Crystal, Azurite, Lapis Lazuli Amethyst, Sapphire and Sodalite.
  • Crown – Purple Flourite, Quartz Crystal, Selenite, Diamond, Alexandrite, Amethyst.

There are also some crystals that can help balance, open, close and ground such as Boji Stones™

For a more detailed look at the benefits of certain crystals, take a look at Sharon’s article on Crystals.

Crystals – Chakras & Crystal Healing

This section follows on from the Chakra article, and takes a slightly more in-depth look at the uses of crystals in relation to the Chakras.

As a general rule the colour of the crystal is normally similar to that of their corresponding Chakra. For example, the darker coloured crystlas such as red, brown and black, will only feel comfortable on the lower chakras. As mentioned before, chakras ‘spin’ at different rates. The lower chakras are much slower that the higher chakras, therefore you need to use crystals also according to their energetic frequency. Some crystlas have a very fast vibration, like quartz, and others feel much slower and more dense, like jasper.The slower and more dense crystals should only be used on lower chakras as placing a dense/heavy frequency crystal on a high frequency chakra such as the third eye or crown can make you feel quite uncomfortable.

Working with crystals on chakras is all about trying to bring each energy centre into a state of balance. If a chakra is overactive, you would need a crystal that would help to calm this down. for example if someone has a sore throat from talking too much, then something like blue lace agate will help to ease this. If, however they are having trouble with communication at the throat chakra then you need a faster more energetic crystal such as sodalite to encouage this and to activate the chakra rather than trying to calm it and so on. As before, use your intuition as much as possible as crystals will help you out! However, if you want to find out more then check with a qualified crystal healer.(See Sharon and Brian in the Directory section under Healing)

Here are some examples of crystals and the Chakras with which they work, along with what they are used for on a spiritual, physical, mental or emotional level.

The 1st Chakra (the Base or Root Chakra):-

The main colour of this Chakra is red, although other colours such as brown and black also work. Examples of crystals which can be used in conjunction with this Chakra are:

  • Bloodstone – helps decision making and unselfishness. Can improve talents and creative abilities. It also helps to dispel bewilderment. Bloodstone helps purify the blood and aids treatment of the spleen, liver, bladder & intestines. It can balance blood flows and aid rashes, leukemia and failing eyesight.
  • Red Jasper – can help you to learn to progress and also allows you to remember dreams more clearly. Helps prevent setbacks and can soothe the nerves. It can also aid loss of smell and help treat tissue deterioration in internal organs.
  • Obsidian – a good ‘grounding’ stone for meditation. Protects from both physical and emotional harm. It brings purity by balancing body, mind and spirit. . It can also help clear the eyes and aid disorders of the veins and skeletal structure.

The 2nd Chakra (the Sacral or Spleen Chakra):-

The main colour of this Chakra is orange. Examples of crystals that can be used in conjunction with this Chakra are:

  • Carnelian – good for stabalising energy in the home. Protects from envy, fear and rage and can be used to dispel apathy. It can remove negativity from other stones. It can help in the treatment of neuralgia, colds, gall & kidney stones and pollen allergies. It also aids disorders of the spine, spleen and pancreas.
  • Gold Topaz – Like a battery, Topaz can recharge your energies. It enhances your relaxation and feelings of peace and calm. Also it acts to initiate faith and can attract people to you. It can aid disorders of the liver, endocrine glands and the bladder.
  • Amber – can help one to choose and also be chosen. It is said to bring good luck in battle, most likely because of it’s protective qualities. It cleanses its surroundings and helps to purify mind, body and spirit. It can help diseases of the throat, and aid the kidneys and bladder.

The 3rd Chakra (the Solar Plexus):-

The main colour of this Chakra is yellow. Examples of crystals that can be used in conjunction with this Chakra are:

  • Gold Tigers Eye – Good for meditation as it instills peacefulness and can also enhance psychic abilities and intuition. Encourages optimism and a positivity for life. Good for stimulating wealth. It can help problems with the eyes, throat, reproductive system and bowel cramps. It can also aid night vision and help mend broken bones.
  • Citrine – It is said to help income if placed in your till or cash box. It can help dispel fear and brings a great sense of happiness & comfort. It can be helpful in the resolution of group/family problems. Also it is good for circulation and to help digestive disorders. A very positive stone. Cleansing and helps instil cheer, upliftment and positive decision making.
  • Gold Calcite – is an energy amplifier and releases electrical pulses when under pressure. It helps the user to remember, especially in meditation, and is a great aid to study (particularly the arts and sciences). It can also clear and activate the Chakra it is working with. Helps the spleen, pancreas & kidneys to function properly and can also aid decalcifying bone growths.

The 4th Chakra (the Heart Chakra):-

The main colour of this Chakra is green. Examples of crystals that can be used in conjunction with this Chakra are:

  • Jade – said to bless what it touches. Used as a protection from ill health and attack. Inspires ambition and releases blockages to allow you to attain your goals and dreams. A confidence booster. Can stimulate the adrenal glands and help regulate the metabolism. Also helps with colic and aids the body when it is under stress.
  • Emerald – can enhance the memory and its capacity. Good for meditation as it regulates breathing. An excellent stone for happy, harmonious relationships and also brings loyalty. Helps you to focus and be practical about life. Also said to bring favourable results in legal matters. It soothes the eyes and can help treat the spine, heart, lungs and muscles.
  • Rose Quartz – this may seem to be out of place as the crystal is, as its name suggests, pink in colour and not green, however Rose Quartz is the ‘Crystal of Love’ so it is ideal for use with the Heart Chakra. It helps you to love and to be happy with yourself and others. It heals emotional wounds and brings peace and trust to relationships.

The 5th Chakra (the Throat Chakra):-

The main colour of this Chakra is blue. Examples of crystals that can be used in conjunction with this Chakra are:

  • Sodalite – eliminates confusion and encourages trust in oneself and others. Allows you to realise and speak your true feelings. Can dispel insomnia and aids purification of the body, helping digestive disorders and glandular problems. Also helps with calcium deficiency.
  • Kyanite – similar to the Boji Stone™, Kyanite will automatically balance, clear and align all the Chakras. It is very calming and, therefore, good for meditation. It can help the throat and also with communication.
  • Turquoise – a protective stone and an excellent healer. It is also a good ‘grounder’ and can therefore protect and keep you level-headed during meditation. When used with the Throat Chakra it will help with communication of emotions and intuition. An all-round healer that can help strengthen the entire body. Helps to fight all illness, and is especially good for eyes, throat and headaches.

The 6th Chakra (the Third or Psychic Eye):

The main colour of this Chakra is indigo/purple. Examples of crystals that can be used in conjunction with this Chakra are:

  • Sapphire – said to be the stone of prosperity. It eases frustration. Blue Sapphire aids communication and helps develop psychic abilities. Enables you to interact comfortably and beneficially with others. Relieves blockages and gets rid of negative energies. It can also help with disorders of the blood and brain.
  • Lapis Lazuli – enhances wisdom and expands awareness. It can help you understand your dreams and provides clarity of mind, body and spirit. Aids the organisation of a daily routine. It can relieve depression and protect from psychic attacks.
  • Azurite – good for psychic development and discussion. Relieves any blockages and worries to allow you to progress in which ever direction you need to go. Gives confidence & inspiration, and enhances relaxation, so making meditation easier to achieve. It helps disorders of the bones and circulation. Clears unwanted toxins from the body.

The 7th Chakra (the Crown Chakra):-

The main colour of this Chakra is violet/white. Examples of crystals that can be used in conjunction with this Chakra are:

  • Clear Quartz – a good ‘all round’ healing, energizing and balancing crystal. It dispels negativity. Very good for the mind in meditation and spiritual development. Helps ease pain. Can aid vertigo, circulation, fever and glandular swelling. Can help to eliminate toxins, it can also benefit digestion, bladder and kidneys.
  • Amethyst – one of the most popular crystals, probably because it has such a calming effect. Clears negativity from the body and also from its surroundings (which is why it is suggested that you place a piece of Amethyst near your television to disperse unwanted electro-magnetic energy. However we feel that black tourmaline is the best thing for this purpose as amethyst can be too brittle and end up breaking). Excellent for meditation, spiritual & psychic work and will help protect you from harm. It can aid the nervous system and hearing disorders. Also good for headaches and relieving insomnia. The digestive tract, stomach, heart, skin and teeth can also benefit.
  • Purple Fluorite – brings order to every part of your being (i.e. mind, body, emotions and spirit). Helps you to understand the balances essential to all relationships and can help attain physical perfection. It cleanses & purifies and helps dispel the symptoms of cold, flu, infections and ulcers before they take hold. Also used to treat tumours in their early stages. Can help the bone structure by strengthening cells.

Dowsing – A Brief Introduction

What is Dowsing?

It is the ability to use the Natural Sensitivity, which we all possess, that enables us to know things, to seek for and locate things which we cannot know or do by using the day to day brain, or by learning, or by experience, or by using the five physical senses which we are born with

Dowsing enables us to work at any distance around the world from the comfort of our own home.  Distance, depth, height, date, location seem to make no difference and there are very few (if any) that cannot be found by dowsing and there is much more that can be found.

What can be done by Dowsing?

There is very little in the physical world which cannot be found by dowsing and there is much, in addition, that can be found out once you have developed, by practice and perseverance, your individual dowsing skills.

The following list gives an ides of the many and varied fields to which dowsing can be applied – and this is by no means exhaustive.

  • Water: The location of underground streams at any depth, their direction of flow, their depth, the quality of the water and what quantity could be drawn off in say gallons per hour or day etc..  The location of springs or a well in your neighbours garden that has fallen into disuse – and much more.
  • Minerals – Precious Stones: The location, demarcation and identification of the area, the line of the mineral lodes, depth and estimating the quantity and the quality.
  • Oil – Gas: The location of oil deposits under the land or the sea and the depth below the surface and an estimate of the quantity and the quality, also the porosity of the rock strata in which it lays.
  • Archaeology:  The location of unknown sites where nothing shows on the surface of the ground.  The depth below the surface that a site lies, the outline, the run of defences, the depth of ditches, the run and heights of previous walls and buildings.  The location of roads, grave sites and burials.  The dates of sites and so on.
  • The location of sunken ships and submarines:
  • Building Sites: Examination for all purposes, the water runs underneath them, rock state, soil state, rock faults, old wells, cavities, cellars, drains, sewers, cables and pipes and so on – especially if it is intended to build on that site.
  • Location of pipes, cables and drains: The line of the run, depth, location of fractured pipes, broken cables, leaks and blockages.  It is particularly to farmers for searching for old or lost field drains and tracing water supplies from farm to field and field to field for animal drinking troughs and so on.
  • Location of tunnels, caves, lost mine workings: The demarcation, size and depth of them and flooding.
  • Lost articles: Valuables, car keys, rings, brooches, purses, wallets to name but a few.
  • Missing people: This is one of the most difficult tasks owing to the difficulty of identification and should be undertaken with care and careful preparation – bear in mind that some people deliberately ‘disappear’ for their own personal reasons and have no wish to be found.
  • Tracking lost animals or children or perhaps someone elderly and confused in areas of ,say, woodland:
  • Plant and soil treatments: Mainly used in determining how to improve soil quality for the various plants to be grown in it and determining the best location for plants, trees and shrubs etc.
  • Medical: A number of qualified doctors and others are increasingly using dowsing techniques to assist in diagnosis and the selection of remedies.
  • Animals: Pendulum dowsing can be used to locate health problems in animals and help in the selection of remedies.  The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons accepts this course of action providing the services of a vet are called for if it is considered that the animal needs professional help.
  • Healing of houses, shops, factories, offices etc. of the effects of Geopathic Stress::  This has become quite a large part of the work undertaken by dowsers.  Geopathic Stress can be particularly harmful and health threatening and prolonged period spent with its influence can and usually does cause a worsening of a condition e.g. arthritis, depression, sleeplessness, heart problems to name but a few.

How Does it Work?

The short answer is that no-one really knows – it just does!.  The scientific world, geologists and archaeologists and so on appear to put their heads in the sand because here is something that cannot be Proved nor can it be Disproved scientifically.  However it is surprising how many water, mining, oil companies and so on use dowsers in exploration work – it is never admitted because it may take away the credibility of the large concern – increasingly police forces etc. will use the services of a dowser.

All that can be said is that it is an in-built ability within man from the beginning of time, it helped him to find his food and water and his minerals.  In addition it helped him to communicate with other members of his tribe at a distance and there are still in this world so-called primitive tribes who have these natural abilities to this day.  Gradually over the centuries our so called sophistication and civilisation etc. have stifled these natural abilities, plus, of course, condemnation by the church particularly in the period of about 1610 until the late 1700’s and even today when it was and is, by some, considered the work of the devil.  I firmly believe that it is some primeval and natural instinct that lies deep within us all, the Mind which has the ability to receive communication from the Universal Mind that knows and controls everything that there has ever been, that there is and ever will be – God.  I firmly believe that it is a God given gift – to everyone who is prepared to develop and use it – to be used for the benefit of our fellow man and the world in which we live.

Who can be a Dowser?

Again the short answer is, Everyone.  Once you have been shown the basics and have accepted that it is a gift open to everyone and you are prepared to put yourself out a little, especially in the early stages you will be on the right road to be coming a competent dowser.  It requires a lot of practice to build up your confidence.  Until you have built up that confidence keep away from sceptics because they can undermine you quicker than anything else.  At first I was hesitant and embarrassed at the thought of being seen walking along with a pendulum or pair of rods or twig from a tree, I have now developed a thick skin and am oblivious to the scoffers.  The best form of defence is to thrust the rods into their hands and tell them to have a go, it is surprising how many scoffers and sceptics get the shock of their lives when they realise that the rods are responding to something for them.

So let us clear up one point straight away.  Dowsers are not ‘odd’ people.  They are very ordinary men and women who have developed their sensitivity for practical purposes and use it on practical problems, the outcome of which are demonstrable, thus their work can be seen to be correct (or not).

Be keen, be confident, be true to yourself and your dowsing – do not bite off more than you can chew by overconfidence.  One secret is practice – practice – and even more practice.  Where possible enrol for dowsing courses through the Workers Education, Adult Education or courses run by experienced dowsers of good reputation.  Ladies seem to have an in-built sensitivity and intuition which stand them in very good stead.

What Tools are required?

The first point to get clear is, that there is no magic built into the tools.  They are inanimate indicators which are moved subconsciously by the dowser in accordance with that dowser’s ‘Code Language’, which can be different for every one.

Essentially, simplicity is the keyword, some dowsers use all sorts of tools while some, myself included use the simple things in life which, at the end of the day, give you the same results..

The pendulum: This is a simple weight on the end of a piece of cord or light chain.  The wooden light pulls are ideal but the pendulum varies from a key on the end of a bit of cord to a ring or a crystal.  I use a piece of hazel twig for indoor working and a heavier crystal for out doors, simply because you need something that will be heavy enough not to be blown around by the wind.  The pendulum is the most versatile tool for use in ‘map dowsing’ and straight question and answer type of dowsing.  For me, it rotates in a clockwise direction for ‘YES’ and anti-clockwise for ‘NO’.  It swings from side to side if the question is not understood and backwards and forwards in the ‘Search’ position.

Angle rods: The easiest and simplest of all tools to use.  They are just lengths of wire bent at right angles and can be made quite easily from old metal coat-hangers, welding rods, thin brass rod, thick wire., for example; take a pair of wire coat hangers and cut them so that the top is about 9 to 12 inches long and from the angle towards the hook for hanging, about 4 to 5 inches long, then, having cut it, bend the angle to 90 degrees.  The short length is held in the hand as the handle.  However again in windy weather, I have a pair of rods of 6 mm brass rod (almost 1/4 of an inch in diameter).

‘V’ rods: Again there are various sizes, weights and materials.  The traditional being hazel, this was mainly because it is a pliant wood that doesn’t dry out too quickly.  Quite commonly today, plastic is used at a length of about 16 to 18 inches long.

Double ‘VV’ rod: This is made as above except that it is in the shape of a ‘W’.  The advantage of this is that it is very accurate when locating and tracing small pipes etc.  However, it is difficult to get used to.

Wands: These are just springy lengths of thin branch about 36 inches long and are ideal for dowsing up a wall, for example following the path of an old chimney – these tend to meander up the walls of old houses.  A modern materials are taking over and the usual wand is a 36 inch length of fairly thin plastic.

The body itself and the hands:

Some Basic Rules:

These are some basic rules which are a guide to beginners but still apply at all stages of the dowser’s career.

1/ Virtually all Dowsing is Seeking, Looking for Something. This must be appreciated and the mind focused in this direction at all times.

2/ Develop the Dowsing Sensitivity.  Before a dowser is any good, it is necessary to develop a dowsing sensitivity.  H/she must learn to cut out the brain and the five senses and allow the mind to reach out for the answer.  You must practice a lot in your early days and in elementary dowsing work.

3/ Practice and Test.  To develop 3 above, it is practice and more practice.  For instance practice on know things.  Dowse someone’s well and check your results against those that are known – that is how far down is the water and how deep is it?

4/ The Questions Asked Must be Clear, Correct and Appropriate to the Job in Hand.  Think carefully and make a list of questions before you start.

5/ There Must be a Need to Know.  It must be done for a specific task.  Dowsing for a client, demonstrating the practice of dowsing – but never to show off with ‘What a good and clever boy or girl I am”.

6/ Have Confidence That Dowsing Works for You.  This is essential, develop it, hang on to it, you will have failures but so what? – So many people say “Oh yes it works for me, but I don’t think I’ll be any good”  The answer to that is “Oh ye of little faith” – get practising.

7/ It is Essential to Know the Background of the Field in Which You Are Working.  If you want to do archaeological dowsing, get books from the library and learn the basic principles, this applies to anything, Psychic dowsing, any dowsing work.

8/ Be Bold in Application.  Be prepared to take on anything even those which you haven’t tried before.

9/ Time.  If there is a question of time, this must be taken into account. E.g., I want the height of the roof above floor level in the year 1250.  Everything must relate to 1250 and it must be kept firmly in mind.

10/ Identification.  If there are many objects similar to that which is being sought there must be some form of identification.  Examples are lost children or animals.  You are looking for a child, there are millions of children – you should keep in mind – I am looking for a European boy with ginger hair about ten years old etc.

11/ Preconceived Ideas – Wishful Thinking.  These are the biggest menaces in dowsing and the reason for most failures especially amongst the novice dowsers.  Failure come about when you allow the brain and/or the five senses to intrude.

All dowsers, however skilled have to be cautious not to let this happen.

DOWSING IS NOT A MAGIC ART OR AN EXERCISE FOR THE ‘BRAIN OF BRITAIN’ TYPES.

IT IS NOT MEANT TO BE ANALYSED OR REASONED ABOUT.

IT IS THERE TO BE TAKEN ON TRUST – TRUST THAT ANYONE CAN DEVELOP THE SKILL.

A LITTLE PATIENCE AND PRACTICE IS THE KEY.

IF YOU FEEL THAT IT COULD BE FOR YOU, DO NOT HESITATE, JUST GO FOR IT

AND ENJOY IT

Dreams – How to Remember Them

 by Asoka Selvarajah, Ph.D

Dreams are a powerful tool in developing deep insight about yourself and your life purpose. They are a priceless source of inspiration and creativity, as witnessed by geniuses spanning the entire range between Einstein and Salvador Dali; both of whom worked with dream and fantasy in their work.

In sleep, your spirit is unbound and you touch the subtle realms beyond waking reality. This is the place where the highest part of your consciousness, your Higher Self, can communicate directly to you. The language of this communication is the language of symbol and metaphor.

Everyone dreams, but not everyone remembers their dreams. The following simple 3-step process will enable you to work with your dreams to gain deeper insights into your psyche:

(1) Make a written declaration before you sleep.

Say, or better still, write down a statement such as “I want to remember my dreams in order to receive valuable guidance”. If you are already able to remember and capture your dreams, modify this question to “Which direction should I go in life?” or “Should I take that job?” or whatever.

Put the declaration under your pillow before you go to sleep.

(2) Perform stretching exercises before you get into bed.

If you can touch your toes, then do so. At any rate, gently stretch your body so that it is relaxed and flexible. Once you are in bed and ready to sleep, you can also relax your body further. Tense and release each of your muscle groups in turn, beginning with your legs, and gradually working all the way up your body to your face. Take several deep breaths, and feel yourself relax more with each breath.

The fact is that much of our sleep time is spent de-stressing the body, which is why people often do not sleep that well. Much of this de-stressing can be done before you ever drop off.

(3) Write something down when you awake.

It is necessary to awaken gently. If you can use an alarm clock that plays GENTLE music, e.g. chimes, that would be best. Once you are awake, write something down about your dream, even if it is just a feeling.

Sometimes, if you cannot remember the dream straight away, simply lying there in your bed and pondering it will bring a fragment of the dream back. Write that piece down and often, the rest will return to you. If it does not, be content with what you have.

If you really cannot remember anything at all, then still write something down. Often, your physical, mental or emotional state upon awakening is a direct result, a hangover if you will, from the dream you have just experienced.

Be prepared for the need to persist with this process. It DOES work. Like any muscle that has been unused for years, your dream muscles may have atrophied through disuse. If you persist, the spiritual rewards and insights you gain will be very well worth it.

Eleven-Eleven

It seemed to occur all the time, no matter where I was, or what I was doing … I would look up at the clock, the VCR, the microwave or anything that had a digital readout, and there it was – 11:11. Without ever knowingly looking out for this number, how could this be happening?

The importance of eleven is never in doubt, for it’s considered a master number poised right at the beginning of a master sequence of numbers, which runs from 11 to 77. To the ancients, eleven was highly revered as a number of enlightenment, a gateway to accessing, or contact with, higher dimensions.

Rather fancifully, eleven can be drawn as two columns and with the addition of a triangle, (that symbolises the Trinity and acts as a roof), we find we can diagrammatically construct a temple – a place of enlightenment (fig. 1). (Amazingly this is achieved by using eleven lines!)

Eleven-Eleven: Temple Diagram

On a personal level the number eleven has featured in my life in quite an extraordinary way since the early eighties. During that era I purchased a digital clock and it seemed quite amusing at the time that I would frequently return from an evening out, glance at the clock and find it invariably reading 11:11. Another time I would be slouched in my armchair thinking “I should be getting to bed soon” whilst at the same time looking at the clock which 10 times out of 11 said 11:11! All this kept repeatedly happening many times and I kept on dismissing it as pure coincidence. Becoming the butt of many a joke if I was to mention it, I found myself laughing about it all anyway!

Dinner was in the microwave “How much longer?” … 11:11, 11:10 11:09 …

“My 11 o’clock client’s late, what’s the time? … er it’s just gone 10 past 11.”

Another odd thing, sometimes I would find myself looking at 11:11 as if hypnotised. 11:11 remaining there for what seemed longer than it should. Was I going mad? For this all seemed so stupid! Sometimes a month or two would go by and the 11:11 thing wouldn’t happen … It would simply go away, only to make a swift return when least expected, with 11:11 appearing in as many guises as possible.

One day on my way to work, my watch stopped for no apparent reason. It stopped at 11 minutes past 8, with the second hand frozen at the 11th digit. Anyway I shook it a bit, adjusted the time and it seemed OK. That was until a few days later when it stopped again at 5 (read 11) to 2, with the second hand stuck on the 11th minute digit again. (And all this happened whilst I’m at a checkout paying for groceries totalling £8.89, with a £20 note and receiving £11.11 in change!)

Anyway, I’ve no wish to keep labouring this too much for I’m sure you have got the gist of all this by now. There have been a couple of times though, that as far as I’m concerned, I’ll always remember for the involvement of 11:11.

One such occasion was at the recent solar eclipse, which took place on the 11th August ’99 at 11 minutes past 11. It’s important to remember though that this was Cornwall timing for totality, and I was in Wiltshire at the time. Along with my wife and a few friends we attended a gathering at Adam’s Grave, overlooking East Field (a famous location, known to ‘croppies’, that’s received some amazing crop formations over the years).

Somehow all that morning, prior to that event, I felt strangely apprehensive. Maybe all this eleven stuff was finally getting to me, after all here I was on the 11th in ’99, born in ’44 and now aged 55, waiting for an eclipse that was about to start at 11 minutes past 11! As we stood there, there were so many clouds around that we only caught fleeting glimpses of what was occurring now and again. But then amazingly, we had a 30 second window at exactly 11:11. My anxiety turned to elation, for it was almost as if it was just for me. After that moment the sun never reappeared and I can remember jokingly thinking at the time that if someone was really trying to tell me something, this was it, big time!

By this time though, I was already beginning to draw conclusions that somehow I was being personally addressed, rather than merely being subjected to a string of coincidences. Three days after the eclipse, I was to find some sort of confirmation of all this as I stared at my computer screen. Surfing the net, via links via links, I finally clicked on Joe Mason’s site at www.greatdreams.com . I couldn’t recall having been there before and it seemed quite interesting, especially as I found myself browsing through an article concerning the eclipse and its relationship to 11:11. A few more clicks and then I was into a section titled ‘Coincidences and Eleven’, and I simply couldn’t believe what I had stumbled upon, for its contents were totally unexpected. Here I found letter postings by thousands worldwide, who were also experiencing 11:11! Suddenly a realisation washed over me that it wasn’t just me after all. After I’d picked myself up off the floor, I found many more 11:11 sites and I slowly began to realise just how big this phenomenon is.

So what did I learn from all this? Well basically it seems that a theory exists that before we arrived here, a few of us programmed in a wake-up call! A master number of enlightenment we would recognise and respond to. A wake up call for ‘Lightworkers’ here to help with forthcoming Earth changes.

Are there any other explanations? Well, yes there are, but after giving it some thought I came to the conclusion that what I’ve just explained to you in a nutshell is the most likely. After all, isn’t it the crop circles that are awakening our spiritual awareness during these times? … And am I not enlightening people about this? I’ve since met one or two other “eleven-eleveners”, and through some lengthy conversations, they appear to confirm what I’m saying here.

During the early nineties, which was coincidentally at a time when I first became interested in crop circles, 11 or 11:11 was clearly being written in our fields (fig. 2).

Eleven-Eleven: Elevens Diagram
At that time they were known as ‘boxes’ and a small booklet titled “Crop Circle Classification” by Pat Palgrave-Moore, records and illustrates quite a few of them. These oblong boxes also appeared within early pictogram designs (fig. 3 Chilcomb Down 1990) and as recent as ’99 they featured yet again in a “Mother of all pictograms” that came down in the renowned East Field.

Eleven-Eleven: Chilcomb Diagram

Eleven has featured numerically in formations during the past few seasons, often as its highly revered derivative 33. What we’ve never seen though, or at least until season 2000, were formations featuring eleven-fold geometry … So trust the first ever to land in what’s known locally as ‘Crop Circle Alley’ near Beckhampton on 25th July, on the very day I arrived in Wiltshire! (Oh, no not me again!) After having spent five hectic days, going round in circles, I went home. I returned again on 6th August, the very day that the second eleven-fold came down at Cherhill Field … the day it dawned on me that eleven had arrived twice!

Eleven-Eleven Again

Whilst a few catch on straight away, as to why they’re repeatedly bombarded by the continuous appearance of 11:11, many have remained bewitched, bothered and bewildered by it all. Although I don’t pretend to have all the answers, I’m absolutely convinced that the nagging appearance of 11:11 that’s placed before “eleveners” in an infinite number of ways, is definitely a pre-programmed wake-up call. In other words, it looks like we’ve set the alarm for 11:11 ourselves before we incarnated this time around. The mere fact that these numbers are being constantly manipulated in order to seek our attention, should go a long way towards convincing many of you that other realities exist. In truth we are spiritual beings experiencing physical form, and it’s our spiritual consciousness that’s being continuously addressed. Whilst we’re held within this dense physical plain, we all struggle at times to try to remember who we really are, and for what life’s purpose we serve … for many though, simply being on the receiving end of an endless supply of 11:11 wake-up calls should act as a positive reminder.

With so many thousands worldwide now being subjected to all this, the question that needs answering now is “Why was this alarm set?” … And what’s so special about 11:11? Well believe it or not the symbolism of eleven in itself helps to provide some of the answers, as I’m about to reveal.

Eleven for aeons has been known as the number of enlightenment … in fact a gateway to enlightenment that’s often seen symbolically represented by twin pillars erected on either side of an entrance to ancient mystery temples (figure 1).

Eleven Eleven: The Temple Diagram

Figure 1. The Temple

Looking very much like the figure eleven, Freemasons regard the left hand pillar (Boaz) as representing strength, whilst the right hand pillar (Jachin) is set up to establish righteousness … so figuratively we find eleven possesses a dual characteristic, for strength plus established righteousness equals stability.

Beyond the gateway (see again figure 1), we find ourselves stepping onto the floor of a Templar church, a Gothic cathedral or a Masonic lodge that consists of alternative black and white tiles. Symbolically, all that stand upon the chequered pavement have intimate contact with the physical, for in being the ground floor it’s regarded as the level playing field, surrounded by all that’s black and white … negative/positive … active/passive … etc. Characteristically the black and white tiles fit together to form an integrated whole … a symbol of duality creating balance and because eleven symbolises duality, the colours it’s known to associate with are always black and white.

As mentioned in a previous article, eleven is a master number positioned at the beginning of a master sequence of numbers. Eleven and each alternate eleven in the series are considered “as above” numbers that are more spiritual in nature, whereas the rest are regarded as “so below” numbers, reflecting the physical plane (figure 2).

Eleven Eleven: Above And Below Diagram

Figure 2. Above And Below

Throughout our experience here though, we understand duality to be an alternation of extremes. This loses sight of its much higher truth in that duality is considered on higher planes as being purely an expression of eternal cycles created by rhythm and harmony.

As to why eleven as 11:11 should appear twice … well there are several reasons for that, one being obviously that by repeating itself eleven is emphasising its duality. Importantly eleven must never be thought of as having only one meaning, for eleven is black as well as white. This helps to explain why the ancients often feared eleven, because enlightenment meant change. This usually meant mass upheaval whilst the old order was being swept aside … a situation we’re encountering right now as the 11:11 experience, during our eleventh hour.

Our world is rapidly changing with many changes occurring in an infinite number of ways. Working within duality, eleven can often play a very negative role with one such example being the September 11th attack on the World Trade Centre. Eleven appeared everywhere … in the flight numbers, in the number of people on board etc etc, in fact in so many ways, that it simply couldn’t be put down to mere coincidence. Even the twin towers, which side by side looked like eleven, were hit twice! Once you distance yourself from all the emotion that surrounded those terrible events, it soon becomes clear that here was a global wakeup call – big time! Although the response, fuelled by media overkill, inevitably proved to be just as negative, let me assure you that when you learn to view such an event as having a dual outcome, you’ll also find its positive side. Worldwide it’s all helped to trigger the inevitable shift in consciousness that’s about to surface. Massive change is imminent, for these are the “end-times”. Much will predictably worsen until an inevitable cut-off point, long referred to as the transition into super-consciousness. Literally, we shall “lighten up” as we shift from the dense realities of the third dimension, into the “enlightened” consciousness of the fifth. Whilst continuously receiving their wakeup calls, “eleveners” are incarnating at this time in order to help others through this transition – it’s as simple as that!

It’s quite common for many exposed to elevens to question “Why me? – I’m just ordinary, why is this happening to me?” – Why shouldn’t it happen to you? … Can you think of a reason why you shouldn’t be on the receiving end? What’s important to realise here though, is that it’s just not you … for in truth we’re not just dealing with individual callings, but experiencing and witnessing something that’s truly remarkable … a worldwide spiritual awakening.

The symbolism of 11:11 was highly revered by the ancients. Priests and initiates into Mystery Schools learnt of an eleven that’s found within 11:11. (figure 3). Simply put, eleven is the number of enlightenment, and enlightenment comes from within … Working in harmony with the divine plan, our path through evolution eventually leads us to become enlightened beings. The lessons learnt throughout many lifetimes that are essential to our development, are obtained through the vibrational rhythm of numbers. “All is number” according to Pythagoras, and although we’re little aware of it, numbers are a major influence in our lives. Those now responding to the master numbers of 11 and 22, have reached the higher state of their evolution, which is often referred to as the “Christ consciousness within” (aka “The eleven within”). Interestingly, the number total of the name Jesus in numerology adds to 11 … and isn’t through Him that many found enlightenment?

Eleven Eleven: Eleven Within Diagram

Figure 3. Eleven Within

Trying to ignore the 11:11 experience really isn’t an option. There’s really nothing to fear by being singled out as an “elevener”, so why fight it? To be an elevener is to be a “light-worker” … an enlightener with a choice of many pathways upon many levels. You have literally triggered yourself into seeking your spiritual self – that’s what this is all about!

As for myself, I am a crop circle researcher who continuously works to pass on their valuable teachings. Crop circles are simply enlighteners that are heralding the changes throughout these end times. Often employing eleven and its derivatives in a multiple of ways within their geometry and form, crop circles are the language of the light from the light. Symbolism is a universal language and as such can be understood by anyone worldwide. With many formations being ancient symbols, they encode a mass of information ready for us to interpret … Make no mistake about it – they’re talking to us! To give you an example. Take a look at the design that appeared beside Windmill Hill near Avebury in Wiltshire, during the summer of ’99 (figure 4).

Eleven Eleven: Windmill Hill Crop Circle Diagram

Figure. 4 Windmill Hill 2000

Held within a circle, we find a 13 x 13 chequered floorlay that amazingly appears to project skyward! Whilst 11 is symbolised by the black and white tiles, the number 13 in numerological terms indicates transformation. So here we find, perfectly symbolised in the grain, the imminent dimensional shift! Within its 3-dimensional symbolism we’re also viewing the Great Pyramid as you would from above, for as you can see, the largest square indicates the missing capstone. The Great Pyramid is of such prophetic significance that clearly written numerically and symbolically within its geometric structure is the prophesised return of the Christ Consciousness.

With crop circles apparently mentioned in the Old Testament “as the signs we shall witness on the Earth below”, they are now well complemented by the other half of the prophesy which also foretold of “the signs we shall see written in the sky above”. I think you’ll agree that we have never at any moment in time seen so many planetary alignments and cosmic collaborations as we’re witnessing now. Amazingly, many of these events have thrown 11 and 11:11 into the equation. Passed unnoticed by many, they would have had the ancients down on their hands and knees in awe! Consider the events that took place during 1996 within the constellation Perseus, which I first found mentioned in Bonnie Gaunt’s intriguing book “The Stones and the Scarlet Thread”. †

Perseus was a warrior, and he’s clearly viewed in the constellation as wielding a sword and lauding it victoriously above, whilst clutching the severed head of his enemy in his other hand below. Symbolising the light overpowering the dark, one of the brightest stars Algol is found within the severed head. Positioned precisely over the star on April 11th 1996 was the comet Hyakutake, but can you believe that exactly a year later, on April 11th 1997, comet Hale-Bop was also placed precisely over Algol! But that’s not all, for the paths taken by the comets were at right angles to each other, and is so doing, formed a perfect cross on the forehead of the severed head! Could it be that here we had witnessed the fulfilment of an age-old prophecy within this sign, that foretold of the forgiveness of sins upon the imminent return of the Christ Consciousness? Obviously this particular sign wasn’t completed until the second event was realised. Knowing that the “Guy from Galilee” worked with 11, did the second phase that completed the sign on the 11th indicate the Second Coming? … Eleven twice? Look also at the date when the sign was completed – the 11th of the 4th month 1997. Adding fadically that’s 11 + 4 = 15 plus 1997 = 2012 – doesn’t that ring a few bells?

How can anyone put all this down to coincidence? I’m absolutely convinced that we’re witnessing major fulfilment of end time prophecies that have long been prophesised by the ancients worldwide. All that it takes to cure humanity’s ills is a shift in consciousness and that’s what’s meant by enlightenment. Everything foretold is now perfectly in place, and that’s including you and me!

Eleven-Eleven: The End Times

The 11:11 phenomenon that’s intrinsically linked to digital clock displays is very much about time. We’re living through a long awaited period of transition, that’s known as “The End Times” and as our reality moves towards its omega point, most people will agree that time nowadays appears to be speeding up – which it is! Time is literally collapsing, and as incredible as that may seem to some of you, the term “End Times” means quite simply the end of time.

Haven’t you noticed how time appears to pass quicker each year? We are now entering a higher dimensional aspect of our planet, and whilst you would never see this in the hands of a clock moving any faster – you can readily sense “Cosmic Time” speeding up. many have talked about these changes in different ways, with some even declaring that the 24 hour day now only equates to 16 hours … now didn’t you just know that!

Time certainly feels different now, for our world is restructuring herself. The energy of ascension is really moving fast, and with it the structure of our own bodies is altering. It’s simply has to be said that the long held prophesies of a reality change will occur because the many elements, such as the speeding up or quickening of the Earth’s pulse already exist …

Everything within creation is a vibrating energy. Whenever the speed of vibration increases, energy becomes less dense and heat is created. So look at what’s been happening to the temperature of the planet over the last few decades … we now have global warming. In all probability, this has more to do with the quickening frequency of the planetary energy field than anything else.

Through an 11:11 triggered response, information easily becomes a commodity that’s almost as important as food. As soon as you start to grow in awareness, you intuitively sense that primarily you’re a spiritual being … and along with that realisation, suddenly the fact that you pre-programmed yourself with a 11:11 reminder before you arrived here, doesn’t appear to be so far fetched!

Crop circles are also a trigger … often employing eleven in their measure, these profound wake-up calls are literally a physical manifestation of spiritual consciousness. They profoundly announce with elegant and intricate beauty, “the paradigm shift is upon you”! Acting as heralds, they’ve long been working in our recycled fields to achieve the forthcoming harvest. Each and every transmission carries a message and what has to be understood is that these cosmic imprints have an incredible power to transform. One important messenger arrived in oil seed rape at West Kennet Wiltshire early in ’98. It became known as “The Beltane Wheel”. (figure 1)

End Times

Figure 1.

Consisting of 33 tongues of flame, this ancient symbology embodies “Blazing Fire of Bales” or “Bale Fire” that referenced the old Celtic festival of Beltane. Beginning on May 1st of each year, the Beltane Festival was celebrated right throughout the month. The first half of the Celtic year though began in November and was known as “Entering the Dark” … wintertime, with its short-lived days. The second half of the year began in May at Beltane, and was known as “Entering the Light”. At Beltane, fires were prepared on hilltops using sacred wood. They were lit just before dawn, and symbolically were a celebration of leaving the dark and entering the light.

The Beltane Wheel was found lying opposite Silbury Hill, early on the morning of the 4th May. This was a fascinating formation, and one you couldn’t fail to notice with its yellow flower heads as flames. It appeared in a field that’s been overlooked by the West Kennet Longbarrow, for the past 5700 years or so. Often attracting formations within its environs, the Kennet Longbarrow is the largest barrow in England, and the ground plan of its chambers resembles a pregnant squatting goddess. The principle function of the barrow was to provide a womb, in which the dead could be reborn. With its message of entering the light, the Beltane Wheel perfectly echoed rebirth. Being springtime, there’s evidence of renewal everywhere, for suddenly meadows become alive with flora celebrating new life.

The construction of the Beltane Wheel is quite complex. Although it appears to have no circular components (that’s to say beyond its structure as a ring) it’s in fact made up of many overlapping rings.

33 is a sacred number, for it evokes “The Christ Consciousness” … eternally giving light, the 33 flames of the Beltane Wheel represents Christ’s earthly years. 33 is derived from 3 and 11, and simply by employing these numbers we find that we can easily unlock what’s encoded here.

End Times 2

Figure 2.

First of all, if we slice the inner circle pizza fashion into three we can then go on to divide the lower segment into eleven pieces. (figure 2) Next by drawing a triangle we can instantly produce another three triangles that create a three dimensional effect. (figure 3) What we’ve actually created here though is a pyramid, which in being a temple of enlightenment, symbolically pours out “the light” of enlightenment, as we enter along our chosen pathway towards a new reality.

End Times 3

Figure 3.

At this very moment in time, the Earth is slowly entering and journeying through a band of light particles known as photons – collectively “The Photon Belt”. With our entry into this belt, we are literally entering “The Light”. (figure 4) For many thousands of years man’s consciousness has been in the dark and now we are reawakening into the light … the very message of Beltane, and that which we find encoded in the Beltane Wheel.

End Times 4

Figure 4.

As the veil that separates us from higher realms becomes thinner, we are able to absorb more spiritual energy. As this energy is consumed, negativity becomes a waste product. Eleveners along with many others that are soaking up this light, should be aware that as the veil lifts the light will intensify, with the result that the dark will literally become darker. Right now the so-called dark and negative are in panic… it’s all around us I’m afraid. All of this though is nothing to be fearful about, for in the forthcoming new age of enlightenment we’re heading far beyond a fear-based reality.

Before you incarnated here, you were subjected to a process that laid out the contract governing this lifetime. In it you established the way you wished to imprint yourself upon this physical reality. Through the 11:11 experience you’ve literally been triggered into remembering this connection. This trigger is an amazing integration of spirit with physicality, which briefly allows you to glimpse the full sense of your being.

11:11 is a vibration that’s awakening a network. 11:11 is a vibration that switches on the grid consciousness and selects those for whom are pre-destined to follow this path, for there are many in service as well as in lesson. With 11:11 appearing so frequently, it’s never long before you find yourself mentioning it to others. In so doing you’ll often find that those you’ve mentioned it to, get back to you at a later date and can’t wait to tell you that they’re now having the same experience. Well folks, you’ve awakened them! … for there’s a multiplying factor here that’s now being recognised as a part of all this.

People from all walks of life experience this phenomenon, right across the board. Pre-encoded with their own personal life mission, eleveners are awakening as the Christ Consciousness. Christianity and Islam both teach that Christ will return at the end of days, and whilst that’s still possible in the flesh, it’s far more likely that the Second Coming should be regarded as a collective consciousness shift en-masse.

Before “The Guy from Galilee” began His ministry, it was the Baptist who foretold of His coming. John immersed Christ symbolically into the waters of enlightenment, for he was the Water Bearer who was pre-destined to announce the physical coming. It’s now Aquarius, the eleventh sign of the zodiac that spiritually pours out the waters of enlightenment that’s announcing the Second Coming. At long last “The Christ Consciousness” is being announced, as we ourselves become baptised as we become fully immersed in the Light. This is the long-awaited transition into Superconsciousness that’ll reawaken our spiritual faculties … finally it seems, we shall see ourselves for what we really are – spiritual beings!

Fourfold Yoga – Part II

Union via Wisdom ( Jnana Yoga )

Jnana means Wisdom & Jnana Yoga means Union with the Divine via Wisdom.

Wisdom has been defined as organised Life. Wisdom and knowledge are different. Wisdom is a special kind of knowledge. What is the use of knowing everything if one doesn’t know the Self ? Knowledge of the Absolute Self alone is Wisdom. ( Sa Vidya Tan Mathir Yaya ).

The Quantum Field Theory

Quantum Mechanics postulate that the finest state of matter is the Vaccum State. The universal sea of matter exist in the Vaccum State. It is defined as the Field of all possibilities. This Vaccum State of the Quantum Field corresponds to the Indestructible Being of transcendental philosophy.

Matter was studied and pursued till one day it vanished into energy. De Broglie’s Matter-Wave Hypothesis postulates that the electron is both a particle and a wave. This wave like nature of matter has taken Physics into the realm of Metaphysics, which hath already declared that matter is a form of Energy and Energy is a form of Consciousness.

The Sevenfold Chord of Being ( The Septenary Principles )

The Universal Substance, by which all this is pervaded, manifests with Its septenary principles with Matter as the lowest term and pure Being as the highest.

  • Matter ( Annam )
  • Life ( Prana )
  • Mind ( Mana )
  • Supermind ( Vijnana )
  • Existence ( Sat )
  • Consciousness ( Chit )
  • Bliss ( Ananda )

These are what the ancient sages meant by the sevenfold mode of cosmic existence, the septenary principles through which the Universal expresses itself.

These, then, are the seven colours of the light of Divine Consciousness, the seven rays of the Infinite, and by them the Spirit has filled in the canvass of his own selfexistence conceptually extended, woven of the objective warp of Space & the subjective woof of Time, the myriad wonders of his self-creation, great, simple & symmetrical in its primal laws and vast framings.The Light, the Sound is One;their action is sevenfold. ( Aurobindo )

How to overcome the Ego

All knowledge is threefold (” Thraigunya Vishaya Veda “). In Freudian Psycho-analysis we have three impulses, Id, Ego and Supergo. The Vedantic Satwa, Rajas and Thamas correspond to these impulses. The mind is always gripped by these three impulses. Sometimes we are Rajasic ( worldly ) and go after wealth. When intense anger and other negative emotions grip us, we are Thamasic. When divine qualities like Love and Peace influence us, we are Satwic ( divine ).

The Ego with its ten heads ( symbolised as the ten-headed Ravana ) is the major block in attaining Self_Actualisation. The ten heads of the Ego are Lust,Anger,Pride, Avarice, Sloth, Covetousness, Attachment, Mind, Intellect, Conceit & Egoistic Mentality. Only when the ten heads of the Ego are removed can we hope to get Self-Realisation. ( Symbolically only when the Ravana in us is destroyed ).

When we do our yoga, we will be assailed by three type of Ego. Rajasic ( wordly ), Thamasic ( bestial ) and Satwic ( noble ). In order to overcome the three types of Ego, we are given certain commandments.

” Ma the Sanghostha karmani ” – (Let there be not in you any attachment to inaction. ) This commandment is given so that we can overcome the Thamasic ( bestial ) ego.

” Ma Karma Phala Heturbhoo ” – (“Dont expect any reward”) This commandment is given to protect us from the Rajasic ( wordly ) ego, which always expects rewards for work done.

“Ubhe Sukruta Dushkrute ” ( “Be beyond good and evil ” ) This commandment is given to us to overcome the Satwic Ego, for one should not hang on to Punya ( divine merit ).

In other words, during the process of Yoga we will be assailed by all sorts of negative thoughts. Our aim is to identify with the Source of all thought, the Self. We will find, as we progress on the path of yoga, that these negative thoughts leave us slowly and steadily. Conquering our negative aspect is not easy. The negative elements in man are the true villains. Alone, powerful, cruel are the dark and dreadful forces that profit from the reign of Night and Ignorance and they dont want any change in the body. We have to annihilate them one by one.

In tragic life, God wot
No villains need be, passions spin the plot
We are betrayed by what is false within !

The entire Vedic wisdom is contained in one word ” Transcend “. Transcend both pain & sorrow, transcend the triune attributes of Nature. Transcend negativity !

More information about Transcendental Philosophy & Yoga can be had from www.eastrovedica.com/html/yoga.htm We are always confronted by the negative qualities. Perfection has to be worked out, harmony has to be established. Ignorance, limitation, sorrow, – these are the negative qulities as pitted against Knowledge, Infintiy & Bliss. These negative qualities are merely the first terms of the formula – unintelligible, till we have worked out the wider terms and reintepreted the formulary. They are merely the initial discords of the Musician’s harmony. To rise from the Negative to the Positive, from Ignorace to Divine Knowledge, from limitation to the Illimitable, from sorrow to Bliss Infinite, from Matter to revealed Spirit, is Yoga. To achieve this end for ourselves and for our brethren is the aim of our Yogic practice. – ( Aurobindo)

Wise men like Ramana Maharshi advises us to annihilate the Mind. For it is that which gives you pleasure that gives you pain. The root cause of all bondage and all sorrow is Mind ! Annihilate the mind by thinking on its real nature. The true Source of the Mind is the “I”, the primal Thought. Because of the Primal Thought, the mind exists! He advises us to enquire into the nature of the Self. The thought ” Who am I ” will lead us to the annihilation of the mind. This thought ” Who am I ” is like the the burning log which will burn all other logs!

I am pure Being, by whom all things be !

The Negative Method in the Upanishads

In the Upanishads Reality is defined by a series of negatives because the Negative is less limiting than the Positive.

This is known as the Neti ( “Not this ” ) method. We deny the Finite in order to affirm the Infinite.

We say this is my shirt. That means that I am not the shirt. Similarly we declare my hands, my legs etc which means I am not the hands or legs. Then who am I ? The body is mine, therefore ” I ” am not the body. Then who is this “I” ? We therefore apply Intuitive Logic and deny everything. All these are mine, but I am not they. A state will come, during this process of denial, that I cannot deny one thing. What is this thing which I cannot deny? That which I cannot deny is “I”, the Self, the Consciousness !

The finite is negated to affirm the Infinite.

The Superconscient as the Base

The Superconscious Mind and not the subconscious is the base of all Life.

Let us analyse why the Superconscient is considered as the foundation.

Deep within the five sheaths which compose our being – the material, the the vital,the mental, the gnostic & the blissful – is the Absoulte Self , the divine component in us which Jesus referred to as the Kingdom of Heaven ( ” The Kingdom of Heaven is within you and whomsover shall know himself shall find it ” ).

The dreadful forces or ” hostile forces” as they are known – lust, greed, anger, jealousy, sloth & covetousness – lie in the dark caverns of the Subconscious mind. Wisdom declares that they are our inner enemies.

Man houses dangerous forces in his house
The Titan, the Fury and the Djinn
Lay in the subsconscient’s cavern pit
And the Beast moved in his antre den

The Enemy means who ? Our inner enemies which lie in the Subconscient!

Socrates is poisoned. Jesus crucified. Bruno burnt alive. This phenomenon is known in Yogic Psychology as the downward pull of the mind, when the dark forces that lie in the subconscient triumph ( in the collective subsconscient ). The reverse phenomenon, the upward pull of the mind is that which pulls us from death to immortality and realises in this body of earth the luminous Kingdom of Heaven ( Self-Actualisation ).

The four faculties of the Intuitive Reason – Revealation, Inspiration, Intuition and Illumination are all the properties of the Superconscious Mind and can be experienced if we make ourselves pure and make our mind still (” Be still and know that I am God ” – Bible ).

The aim of Yoga is pull ourselves out of the darkness of the subconscient into the Light of the Superconscient and to receive the intuitions and the revealations of the Self and ultimately lead us to Self_Actualisation. The aim of Nature is to effect Super-Nature. The aim of Yoga is Self, is Self-Actualisation.

The great battle between good and evil which was depicted by the poets ( Iliad, Odyssey, Ramayana,Mahabharata etc ) is actually the great war happening in the human bosom between the conflicting forces of good and evil, ever locked in eternal combat. Utlimately the positive elements – Truth, Dharma, Peace, Love & the Discriminative Intellect will win over the negative elements in us and we will be transmuted into the Divine Man. This is the ultimate formula of Wisdom – the divine transmutation of Man!

Yoga as Divine Alchemy

Alchemy is the science of transmuting baser metals into gold. Yoga is divine alchemy as it transmutes base metals ( our human nature ) into gold ( divine nature ).

Scientifically, Alchemy is possible. By proton bombardment, the atomic number of any element can be increased to form another element. So, theoretically, any element can be converted into Aurum ( gold ).

Alchemy is symbolic and no physical transmutation is meant here. Divine Alchemy is the ultimate formula wherein we are transmuted into the Divine Being-Knowledge-Bliss!

This is what the ancient Yogis meant by Transmutation, Transformation & Transfiguration !
