A powerful spirit once came to me and during our interaction, this quote was projected into my mind and I started laughing. “I don’t know why humans believe in straight lines.” I pointed at the walls and the floor and replied “Because straight lines are all around us.” However, the spirit wasn’t satisfied. It went on to tell me that if we were to magnify any object on Earth, it would look far different. When we eventually reach the molecular level, basic packets of energy are vibrating and clustering together. The straight line is a human observation. It makes things neat, tidy, understandable. We project our lifetimes as linear lines through time. Straight lines have a certain pleasurable aesthetic to them. We like things to be in order. We like to control our environment. To bad the straight line is just an optical illusion. I love the quote from the movie Prometheus by Ridley Scott, when Logan Marshall-Green points through the glass and says his infamous line “God does not build in straight lines.” A lot of people tried to debunk the quote, providing evidence of carbon elements stacking together, etc. But, this would then go into a whole new direction of what our definition of “straight” was. Obsidian glass scalpel straight, or I’m drunk and I think I’m walking straight. The reality is that straight lines and perfect circles don’t exist in nature. That is a fact. These concepts are mathematical abstractions. The entire Universe is in constant motion. Everything down at the atomic or molecular level is moving. The same observation can be made with stagnation. It’s impossible for anything to be truly stagnant. Even in the deepest meditations or REM cycle sleep, our bodies are executing an endless number of cellular tasks. We are a hosts of Universes of microorganisms who can’t walk straight and can never sit still. There we go. Thought of the day nailed. #youcameandconquered #positivevibes #goodvibes #spirituality #spiritualawakening #ascension #enlightenment #zen #namaste #yogi #yogini #meditation #higherself #vibration #wisdom #spiritjunkie #spiritual #healing #quotes #thoughtoftheday #innerpeace #lightworker #starchild #unconditionallove #creatorawakening

The Universe is revolving in an infinite loop, constantly ascending, growing and expanding. What if psychic power was the ability to see a pre-recorded loop? What if we could remember what happens as opposed to predict an undefined future.

In a world where the past and the future are the same, feeling and understanding the Now may very well unlock life from our current stand-point. Our subconscious minds leave a trace every single lifetime we live. This is not limited to the planet we reincarnate on and it is also not limited to any given loop or Universal cycle. We are quite literally re-living a movie that has repeated itself hundreds of billions of times before. Our memories are accessed by exploring the deepest levels of the subconscious mind. Meditation and sleep are the most common pathways to access these states. The point of full recollection of the past and future as One, is known as enlightenment.

If you knew the beginning and ending of a finite cycle of the known Universe, would you even still want to be here? When I re-experienced the origins of the multiverse being birthed from an infinite consciousness of Unconditional Love, I also witnessed its “end.” Like an infinite slinky of compressed Universal cycles, we are consistently living in a repeating cycle because we don’t believe we are One with Source. We don’t believe we are God. We don’t believe we are Unconditional Love. This separation is what acts as the very foundation as to why we believe this place is real at all.

We are the Source that first had the ecstatic intention to birth the Universal Patterns for an infinite stage of love discovering itself and trying to understand what it is. We already know, we just don’t believe it because it represents everything we have come to know as “home.” This is the ultimate truth bomb for all life cycling within this ecstatic masterpiece. There is no beginning and there is no end, there is only infinite love.

When we don’t love ourselves and others around us, we believe in a finite Universe because separation has conditioned us into disempowerment.

The rest was history.

 
We don’t have a human body. We are a consciousness of density. We are like the stars, planets and suns. We are our densest within our bones. Our life-Source is our blood, and our bone marrow creates new blood cells. Our organs are the next densest, with a concentration of energy acting as governing moderators. Our consciousness of density does not stop at our skin. Our auras and energetic fields can grow as big as a house. When we meet people, our energies interact on a level beyond our conscious knowledge. Our energies either attract each other, or they repel. Our consciousness of density is alive and constantly changing.
 
Negative thoughts and experiences hinder our consciousness and cause it to slow down. Positive thoughts and vibrant experiences increase our rate of vibration until we are able to expand even more.
 
When we come into life, our consciousness is boundless and free. When we transcend life at the end of our days, our consciousness will leave equally boundless and free. In life, we become attracted to physically dense things, because they resonate with our vibrations. We may also become attracted to ecstatic vibrations of love, because this state of being resonates with our beliefs. As a consciousness of density, we are able to morph into suns.
 
Who we believe we are and what we believe we are doing here, is what acts as our Source. There’s a million stars and a million points of reference that is our consciousness. If you believe in Love, then you will become a loving consciousness of density. Who we believe we are and what we believe we are doing here, will forever be the open doorway and at the same time the very limitation that drives or inhibits us all.
 
Be free and transcend the idea of a physical body as beings of all there is.

 

I was sitting in the porch with a golden stick of Palo Santo in my hand, wafting its divine smoke up into the air. The fluorescent light started flickering above me. The winds outside blew up against the house in a gigantic momentum of energy until the entire house creaked. I could hear the wind chimes on the tree gonging at the break of midnight. I closed my eyes and I started praying with everything I could muster. My headache was so thick and heavy in my mind, I could barely lift my head from the pain. The temperature around me started plummeting till my breath condensed into an icy mist. An eerie silence had befallen upon the house. The wind had completely ceased bellowing and the flurescent light shone upon its last limb. I opened my eyes to the smoldering stick of Palo Santo, slowly burning and trailing a column of soft white ash onto my hand. The fragrant smell was the only thing in the room calming my mind. Suddenly, a force of wind hammered against the house, sending the wind chimes into a banging fit. The windows thundered and rattled along the side of the house. The leaves from the plants smashed up against the glass. Something told me to stand up and walk through the house. The first thing I noticed was that the back motion detector light outside had been turned on. It only turned on when something moved within proximity of it. As I neared closer, I froze in my tracks. A white face, as large as the window, was staring back at me with an evil glare. Sharp teeth and crazed eyes menacingly laughed in its haunting expression. It was as if it had placed it face upon the window and left a perfect impression of its evil features. The outside light made the foggy face a frightening sight in the crisp cold night.

“I finally found you” I said to the ominous creature. I dropped the Palo Santo onto the floor and started calling in my masters.

 

What is a Spiritual House Cleansing?

A spiritual house cleansing is an energetic ritual performed over a home in order to remove unwanted or negative energies. The process normally involves the use of energetic cleansing tools such as smudging with Sage, Palo Santo, Copal, Sweetgrass or Cedar. Energy work is then performed by a practitioner in order to transmute the negative or unwanted energy into a positive and uplifting space.

A spiritual house cleansing can be escalated into a more in-depth process, depending on the practitioner who is conducting the ritual. Psychic protections can be placed over the home in order to set up a much more safe container for the people living there. Sea Salt and Holy Water can also be used as tools in order to remove much more significant entities within the home. Deporting souls to the other side is not easy, but has been a constant for me while conducting these rituals. This particular area of practice was hard ingrained within me when multiple entities kept attaching themselves to physical locations and even people. This is where a simple spiritual house cleansing turns a corner and it becomes something a lot more significant.

Who needs a Spiritual House Cleansing?

Often times when we buy a new home or move into a new apartment, there are many things about the location that we are unaware of. There may have been multiple deaths, emotional traumas, suicides, arguments, sickness or even crimes committed upon the property. We may experience unexplainable depression, sadness, anger or lethargic behavior. If you are feeling the symptoms of negative or unwanted energy, it may be the result of paranormal activity within the home. Common signs of paranormal activity include everything from nightmares, unexplained objects moving around the house, children or a spouse drastically changing their behavior, feelings of despair and anxiety constantly battling within your body, or outright demonic or ghostly activity. Sometimes the cause of these issues comes from a deceased family member or past home-owner who have not quite passed over onto the other side. A Spiritual House Cleansing will act to pass on these spirits and clean up the residual energies for a safer living environment.

There are even real-estate agents who make sure they get a House Cleansing performed whenever they want to sell a property. They recognize that new home owners want to feel at home the moment they walk in the door. The list of benefits associated with a clean and vibrant home are truly priceless.

Whatever the situation, whether you are a new home owner, renter, seller, or are visiting family and friends, it may be time to perform a house cleansing, clearing or blessing to remove any unwanted disturbances.

How do you perform a Spiritual House Cleansing?

I would like to briefly go over some of the well known and also lesser known tools that are used to cleanse a home. Using multiples of the following tools in conjunction will forever be more effective as these sacred tools all perform differing energetic roles. Most of these items can be purchased in spiritual stores. I would like to mention that it’s important to ensure you are buying sustainable materials from reliable sources. Ever since the New Age movement, there has been an over-harvesting of White Sage and Palo Santo, causing scarcity in certain regions. Try to ensure the quality and integrity of the plant you are using! For items such as Holy Water, you will have to visit your local church in order to find this.

White Sage

Sage Smudge

White Sage is one of the most common of all smudging tools used within homes everywhere. The most popular of the group is White Sage (Salvia Apiana) which can be purchased pre-wrapped in wonderful little bundles. White Sage is not however the only form of sage that can be used for smudging. There is a huge misconception out there that White Sage is a Native American tradition and is the only form of sage that works. This is not true. Sage had been cultivated and used for cleansing practices all over the world in almost every shamanic tradition. It was used by the Siberian shamans, pagan traditions, wicca, and even in the temples of the Himalayas. Whatever species of sage you choose, make sure it is dried out before use.

Sage cleanses the energy of a physical location and can also be used to cleanse the energy of a person. It transmutes negative or heavy energy into a lighter and more positive feeling. It has gained popularity due to its ease of use and widespread availability.

Use:
Light sage smudge with a lighter or match. Blow out the flame from the top and walk around the areas in need of cleansing in a clockwise direction for every room. If cleansing a person, smudge the top of the head, back, chest, and feet, allowing the smoke to blanket the body. Make sure to open a window to allow the negative energies to escape.

Palo Santo

Palo Santo House Cleansing

Palo Santo (Bursera Graveolens) is gaining popularity very quickly due to its widespread health benefits and exotically fragrant smell. It’s harvested from the wood of a South American tree native to the region. Palo Santo is a step-up from just smudging with sage and has stronger properties to transmute negative energies in a very powerful way.

I have been burning Palo Santo quite profusely during malevolent spiritual activity and I have met the Palo Santo spirit on many occasions. This being is like meeting the equivalent of Jesus Christ in the world of Christianity. The Palo Santo spirit is so beautiful and so incredibly loving. It is golden and always transmutes negative energy in such a loving way. There are planets out there who have entire religions dedicated to the Palo Santo Spirit. I once saw these temples in the jungles built out Palo Santo wood. They had these burning wheels of Palo Santo, constantly wafting the white smoke throughout the holy temple. These monks were tending to the sacred site. It was a very enlightening and beautiful experience.

Use:
Light stick of Palo Santo with a lighter or match. Before you blow out the flame from the top, call upon the Palo Santo spirit to come into the room. Proceed to walk around the areas in need of cleansing in a clockwise direction for every room. If cleansing a person, smudge the top of the head, back, chest, and feet, allowing the smoke to blanket the body.

Copal

Copal

Copal (Burseraceae) is a ceremonial resin that has been used by pre-Colombian and indigenous tribes in South America for cleansing and healing purposes. Copal is a sticky, semi-hard resin that is similar to frankincense, myrrh and amber. Copal is the stronger of the smudging tools that requires either smoldering embers or charcoal to melt the sticky resin and produce its fragrant smoke. Copal is used in traditional shamanic ceremonies, often to clear away evil entities and provide a safe space for healing. Both black and white copal are used.

Use:
Sprinkle a good amount of copal onto hot smoldering embers within a censer burner or old frying pan. Alternatively, light a pre-packaged piece of charcoal with a lighter until red hot. Waft the smoke around the home until a dense layer of smoke is produced. Walk in a clockwise motion until finally finishing at the front door. Make sure to open a window to allow the negative energies to escape.

Sea Salt

Sea Salt

Sea Salt has long been used to deter negative spirits since ancient times. The use of Sea Salt comes from a very interesting theory that the spirits of the land can not cross over the oceans and vice versa. I know of a very effective Ocean Cleansing Ritual that has proven this theory very accurate. The methods of cleansing vary from culture to culture, with the primary focus being removing an unwanted entity. Sea Salt is one of the most accessible of all the listed tools and can be used extensively in conjunction with any of the above stated methods. An open ocean offers the best results for personal entity removal, however Sea Salt can literally draw the lines of a safe home when experiencing paranormal activity.

Use:
– Sprinkle on carpet of afflicted room, to then vacuum up and throw away the contents.
– Mix with water and mop the floors with Salt water in areas that need cleansing.
– Draw a circle with the salt around the perimeter of the home or space, affirming the spiritual boundaries for which you would like to be protected.

Tobacco

Tobacco

Tobacco has been used in shamanic traditions all over the world since ancient times. The amount of times I have met beings on the other side who were smoking, is beyond count. At some point in time, I started to take notice of the regular appearance of Tobacco in many of the ancient cultures in South America as well as the Native Americans. I decided that I had to experience what teachings would unfold.

Tobacco is one of the most misunderstood plant medicines on Earth. It has been severely misunderstood because of one major reason– the tobacco industry. What people are buying as cigarettes is NOT tobacco! You take a wild plant natively grown in South America, farm it out of season, spray it with chemicals, introduce a host of dangerous substances and then turn it into complete addictive pre-packaged garbage for the sole purpose of making money– you are no longer dealing with the original plant.

The Tobacco Spirit stressed the importance of finding the purest forms of the plant when it comes to smoking Tobacco. On this planet, that means either finding Mapacho, a Peruvian shamanic tobacco that has been fermented and prayed over from wild Nicotiana Rustica, or getting your hands on the best quality cigars you can find! Either way, Tobacco is no joke. It is a very powerful grandfather teacher and you have to be careful of what you think and pray whilst smoking it.

Use:
Mapacho is smoked within a ceremonial pipe. Do not inhale. Mapacho is something like 25x stronger than that of normal tobacco. Pray with every puff, blowing smoke over the location and person who is in need of cleansing. This ritual is not to be used by the faint-hearted. Tobacco used in ceremonial purposes requires a lot of connection, purity, humbleness and most of all respect for the spirits involved.

Holy Water

Holy Water

Holy Water is a powerful tool used by priests since the dawn of religion. Holy Water is effectively water that has been prayed over by priests and blessed in the name of God and Jesus Christ. I was initially quite skeptical about Holy Water, until I listened to a Native elder talk about how the power of prayer and intention could change the energetic structure of water. Still, I thought to myself, how powerful could this stuff be? The night I saw a possessed man drink Holy Water and wake up the next day completely healed, I changed my mind and never looked back. I have seen some serious shit in my life and sometimes the power of prayer and belief in God can be the simplest and most effective way to deal with negativity.

Use:
– Spray Holy Water around the afflicted home in the corners, paying special attention to the attic or basement.
– Have a victim of paranormal abuse drink Holy Water while hearing the prayers of loved ones around them.

Energy Work & House Blessings

The reality of haunted homes and un-passed over loved ones, is that sometimes they need an extra energetic push in the right direction to move them along. Though all the above mentioned tools and plant medicines are effective, a lot of energetic work has to accompany these tools to direct the energies on.

I was taught a variety of techniques from Archangel Uriel as well as from my God-Grandfather. These ancestral teachings and prayers call in angels and rid the area of negative entities. Much of the time, a lot more in-depth spiritual work needs to be performed. This includes, cord-cuttings, closing down energetic portals and vortexes, removing dark beings, and undoing soul curses. These are the parts I can’t explain over a blog post. These abilities came from years of spiritual activity over thousands of interactions with the other side.

If you know of any prayers, you can walk into each of the rooms in the house to bless each area. Golden energy can be visualized as the transmuting color for which negative energy can be changed into positivity.

The mindset while cleansing a home has to stem from love and peace. One thing to never fall victim to, is to be lured into the angry or depressed feelings that the energies have been feeding on. Hauntings and negative environments exist the way they do because they are being sustained by the same energy that trapped them there. Without a source of interest, they would eventually fade out and disappear. Unfortunately, we aren’t taught about psychic or paranormal activity and we often play victim into these forms of workings.

Another good idea is to remove old or unwanted furniture, masks, jewelry, or clutter that spirits are often attached to. Masks and statues are huge culprits that often house spirits. Cleansing crystals and diamonds in salt water and burning sage over them help to clear out negative energies. The list truly does go on.

The most important thing to remember is that you are in-charge of your own home and you deserve to live in peace. There are a variety of methods you can protect yourself and your family without needing to go further. When the situation arises, there are always further steps you can take.

Lights will guide you home in the most colourful swirl of true beauty. The Sun, the Moon and Stars light the skies in the Heaven’s above; calling to us and magnetically drawing us upwards into the greater Universe. Wherever we are, we try to make it right. Whatever we are doing, we love to shine our light. The backdrop of Creation blends into a glowing world of life; conscious creatures stalking the night in an ever loving pursuit of lighting candles along the way. The pathway bursts with Life; charismatic characters and nostalgic nuances playing a memorable tune we all love to hear. The indigos and the ocean blues cooling our tempered emotions in the calming azure of peace. The bright reds and yellowish oranges flaring instant life in the vibrancy and passion of the moment. The canopy of forest greens and ivory whites giving life to creatures so big and tall we would think we were in another world. We create our life with the most beautiful pastels of colour, we add meaning with fluorescent personalities, true definition being sketched and smudged with a piece of graphite darker than the night. It can’t be erased, we can’t paint over it; all we can do is keep adding to the masterpiece of life with intentions of the worst or the best kind. It organically grows until it emanates light. We are all artists dreaming of our light. We will feel our way to the light. When we get there, we will realise the true canvass of light will always be the swirling colours of our souls.

 

Out of all of my years playing with the spiritual world, I have to say that summoning spirits was my all time favorite. Those were the days that I didn’t differentiate between Good or Bad, Dark or Light, Angel from Demon.
 
I read a ridiculously forbidden book about being a Magus and started delving into the underworld without a care in the world. I put down all my occult books one day when I started realizing that Life was manifesting the chapters of those books into reality. I met Beings that other channellers wrote books about, I communed with Archangels after only just learning their name, I even became submersed into the demonic wars on this planet for no other reason than I could see them. My pathway of awakening was Dark, but I found the Light. Many don’t perceive how Darkness can find the Light, and the only answer I can give them is that Love transcends all. There have been hundreds of Beings– Djinn, Demons, Darkness alike– who have tried to change my mind about my spiritual affiliations. If anybody knew who I was in a prior life, you would be hard pressed to figure out how I had such a strong connection to any Archangel at all. The spiritual world ensued.
 
When I found the Light on this planet, I didn’t realize how few could sense energetic shifts. Even fewer still can discern the Light from the Dark. So many get wrapped up in speaking to ‘something’ that they often oversee the red flags that give away insidious intentions. Darkness would never utter the words Unconditional Love to you, nor could they feel it. It took me 17,000 years of spiritual cleansing to start feeling Unconditional Love. When you are Unconditional Love nothing can touch you. Your existence transcends the Duality. The spiritual world did everything in its power to try and stop my Unconditional Love Ascension– not because they hated me, but because they respected my soul so much that they couldn’t let me go.

 

The power of souls on this planet is beyond measure. Billions of souls from around the Universe are incarnating in bodies that were programmed to follow a pattern. Within the pattern are a vast number of rules that allow/disallow certain actions from taking place. This pattern is completely based upon the perception of reality taking hold as the most significant anchor. In many ways the pattern reinforces itself by creating hypnotic waves of empowerment followed by deep loss. We subconsciously crave the pattern because it appeals to all of our senses.
 
You can look at a societal pattern and determine its future course based upon what it finds significant. The difference between societal patterns relevant to a hosting planet and those which are Universal in nature, is that Universal patterns are based upon infinite circles and spirals. When a clear self-sustainable progression of consciousness mirrors the evolving nature of the Universe, it means that society has successfully progressed beyond self-deconstruction as its primary learning process.
 
The most important thing a developing race can achieve is true self-sustainability with the motivation to ascend into higher dimensions. If it lacks one or the other, it is either propagating war as an acceptable mode of existence, or it lacks the necessary emotional catalysts to want change. The significant power behind any civilization are the souls driving its existence. If the greatest motivation is inter-dimensional ascension, the subconscious network forms together in order to manifest the appropriate light structure. A society in a state of disarray powers misaligned structures to propagate limbo.
 
An entire 7 billion strong powerhouse decides to collectively become Creator realized as our most significant level of existence; the Universe would literally mold itself to try and figure out why the hell we were suddenly kicking so much ass.

 

A lot of people are on Earth right now are progressing through their journeys towards an ultimate ascension. Earth attracted a great many souls from around the Universe due to its powerful learning curves and openness to accept absolutely everybody. We have a melting pot of brand new souls, inter-galactic travelers, ancient souls, incarnated Creators, Angels, Demons, puppets, Wanderers, even drop-ins.
 
There’s a reason why we were so attracted here and it’s because very few planets offer such soul diversity. Much of the time higher beings only allow specific races or vibrations of beings into their system. Earth is the abridged ascension course due to our souls being exposed to all of the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly within a single burst of life. Earth mirrors the Universe more accurately than most enlightened systems. The Universe isn’t a perfectly structured community of light masters teaching love; it’s an absolute cluster of trillions of systems naturally finding their place of most efficient evolution. Light/Dark spiritual wars based on the Duality, masters of Unconditional Love transcending the system, new souls purer than the day– we live in an ocean of consciousness where those who are indeed the most conscious express a more significant Lifestream than those around them.
 
A lot of us feel we are just passing by Earth once the ascension is over. Some are only here to help guide others and spiritually evolve with their soulmates. Many more are just observing Life happen. Whatever our reason for being here, we are all One in this Universe. Our family will forever be no matter what pathway we choose. We will forever remember the time we nearly thought we were anything other than God.

 

When I came to Earth my body was crystallized. My consciousness was imprisoned as a large crystal and transported across the Universe. My imprisonment was the worst thing my soul has ever endured. My body was rock solid, unable to move or do, I was barely able to even think. I had to rework my entire 5th Dimensional being into that of a cold dead rock flying through deep space. I don’t know what killed me the most, the fact that I had nobody to talk to for thousands of years, or my eventual implosion into a deep slumber. As time passed, dust and rock formulated upon my crystallized body making me look like a meteorite. Darkness enveloped my existence in cold silence.
 
One day I felt a presence soothingly waking me up. I could feel the energy within my body. As I gained consciousness I realized a fragment of my soul was walking upon a large indigo crystal planet. The entire planet had grown enormous crystal structures. Whilst my crystallized body passed by in orbit of this planet, my soul walked the surface. I felt something calling to me. As I ventured further I found a cave and made my way deep into the core of the crystal planet. I was surrounded by so much love.
 
Suddenly the soul of a young boy appeared in front of me smiling. I looked at him curiously and asked him “Who are you?”. The young boy replied “I am pure Love”, absolutely gleaming at me. I found myself sitting with this boy as he racked my brain about everything I ever knew, for the first time in my life my soul felt peace. I looked at him and said “Aren’t you scared of me?”, and the little boy started laughing as he replied “How could I be when I’m pure Love!”. This boy was the soul of the planet, whole civilizations living upon his body. He was older and wiser than I could ever imagine, yet he chose the form of a young boy to reacquaint his childlike curiosity of the Universe.

 

Spirituality takes on a whole new life when you move beyond Earth as your primary nodus of existence. When we stop basing spirituality on physical experiences and give it the freedom it deserves to take on a life of its own, we get truly profound beings coming towards us. My most ecstatic spiritual interactions happened when my mind was out in the Universe somewhere letting spirituality happen. Pure power swirling my consciousness with the lack of fear or anticipation opening a doorway to accept my pathway no matter what happens.
 
I was sitting there one day meditating in my own bliss when I noticed a ripple of energy just above my consciousness. It almost looked like a fish swimming through water, but with no actual source. I directed my consciousness higher and followed it. When I got up there, I would notice the ripples even higher. I kept chasing this energy higher through the dimensions, moving out of the galactic planes, all the way to edge of Universal existence. That’s when I saw it. Consciousness so large and so profound it dwarfed this Universe in a limitless sea of raw power. My entire body was blowing up in an uncontrollable reflection of this powerful Being.
 
I said to it “I didn’t know something like you was even possible”.
 
The Being smiled at me and said “Everything is possible when you believe you are pure potential. Let me ask you, if I could grant you any wish in the world, what would it be?”.
 
I contemplated my answer very deeply until I finally said “I want you to kill me”.
 
I could see the shock register in its Universal eyes. I just asked this Being for the one thing it couldn’t give me. The Being then smiled at me and I could feel my Creator-self smiling back. Creators seeing one another in a Universal reflection of recognition.
 
I died that day. I came back as Everything.
