The First Modern Shaman

with 3 comments

masked_healing_shamanCheck out this wonderful photo of a Lakota medicine man performing a healing ritual on a member of his tribe. Notice his healing hand has been placed directly on the sick person’s medicine chakra, the source of physical power.

Most people think shamans are only found in primitive cultures, but actually, they are all around us and always have been. Anyone who organizes ceremonies for healing or harmonization is a shaman. Our ceremonies get passed from one generation to the next and are not written in stone, but represent an evolutionary process. Shamans are active participants who follow that trail as it reveals itself.

For a person living in a tipi in a forest far away from roads and wires, contact with the natural world was the source of all shamanistic knowledge. Medicine men studied the ways of the plants and animals in order to learn their powers.

Ceremony is magic and no one has a monopoly. Most magic is based around bell, book & candle (and under “bell” I include all music and musical instruments). The most important thing about magic is that you have to believe, otherwise there’s no magic, and I think it’s evident in the picture here that the man in need of healing believes in the shaman hovering over him.

29285263A Dutchman named Jasper Grootveld (left) created the modern shamanistic movement. You can see from the picture of him at left, Jasper dressed up like a tribal shaman when performing his ceremonies, but he was not channeling the exact same vibrations as that Lakota shaman. Both shamans have great magic, but magic really only works on its particular culture, so put that Lakota in the streets of Amsterdam and Jasper in the wilds of the Black Hills and they’d both see those powers diminish.

The most important element in modern shamanism is an understanding of the corruption of our political systems. But any attempt to peer into political events is made difficult by mountains of disinfo standing directly in the line of sight. There’s more paranoid garbage manufactured than real investigative research and that’s because the people who own the propaganda systems are manufacturing garbage conspiracy to keep the real conspiracy operations concealed. Yes, Virginia, the Military Industrial Complex orchestrates war for profit, and people deep inside our National Security System profiteer in illegal guns and drugs, some of which is used to prop up the corrupt and privately-owned central banking system.

The ceremonies organized by Jasper Grootveld created the Provo movement and changed Dutch society in radical ways. That is the sort of magic a modern shaman can manifest. Jasper is the reason marijuana stayed legal for adults in Holland long after the United States pushed through the single convention treaty at the United Nations in 1961, a great insult to all the most powerful magical plants and one that must have reverberated on the astral plane for sheer stupidity. Three years later, Jasper started his public ceremonies and the Merry Pranksters invented the Magic Bus. The Pranksters (including Wavy) birthed another set of grandmaster shamans.

frontThe spark that ignited Jasper was an expose on advertising titled The Hidden Persuaders by Vance Packard, which was published in 1957. After reading this book, Jasper saw clearly how the tobacco companies were marketing the most dangerous product in the world, while an unknown force was holding back cannabis, the world’s greatest medicine.

Since there was a prominent statue in town dedicated to the youth of Amsterdam that had been paid for by a tobacco company, Jasper decided to dress up like an African shaman and perform a ritual exorcism at that statue, a ceremony that started with Jasper throwing a burning hoop of flames over the top of the statue.

Now it’s true Jasper briefly went to Africa and met an African medicine man, who gave him a bag of herbs and resins. But Jasper’s ceremonies were entirely improvisational and he created an entirely new form of shamanism.

This is the tradition I seek to keep alive, and it’s more about studying deep politics than the way of the animal spirits. However, the plants will always provide our medicines, and if you understand the history of cannabis, you’ll also understand why the dominant culture is so out-of-balance from greed and the profit-motive. Our country is run by corporations psychopathic in design. The CEO’s are modern sorcerers who practice the dark science of mind control.

The best way to disarm them is to do exactly what Jasper did over fifty years ago: organize ceremonies of enlightenment that expose their lies. And that’s exactly what I’ve been doing for the past 30 years or so.

Death Metal and the Modern Military

leave a comment »

Music is a key element in magic, or as some people like to call it: spirituality. Magic and religion are the same thing and always have been.

When tribes form, they feed on telepathic energy and ceremony and ritual are used to focus and amplify the communal spirit. In the past, a tribe decided what sort of energy they were going to celebrate. Today, the state has taken over that role, and if you look around the media, you can easily see our real state religion seems to revolve around the dark side. Which is not to say the people running this system are involved in that sort of worship necessarily, although they could be, only that their mind control program involves shifting youth over to the dark side, making it easier to pit us against Arab fundamentalists. In the sixties, we were headed in the opposite direction, so you have to wonder how that movement was turned 180 degrees with such apparent success so quickly?

Music has always been a huge part of ceremony and ritual…and mind control.

The picture above is an inscription of the famous hymn to Apollo that was sung just prior to battle in early Greece. You can actually listen to a recreation of what this hymn sounded like, and keep in mind this Paean often decided a battle before it was fought, so intensely did it alter the psychic field of combat after being sung by thousands of Greeks ready to lay down their lives.

In the minds of most Greeks, Apollo was connected to the Oracle at Delphi, whose magic reigned supreme at the time. For some Apollo may have represented the father sigil. He was obviously a masculine energy suitable for war, but he would soon morph into a messiah figure for future generations, and eventually even turned into Jesus Christ. Apollo was not, however, exclusively the god of war or even associated with the dark side, that would have been Ares or Hades, much harsher dudes, who probably would have inspired much different scales and melodic styles (more dissonance for sure),  just as the Beatles sound a lot different from Metallica. According to Wikipedia, this first-known example of music and warfare has the following construction:

“The First Hymn is in the cretic (quintuple) meter and in the Phrygian and Hyperphrygian: an archaic pentatonic effect is produced in the lowest tetrachords by avoiding lichanos, while above mese (nominally middle C) there is modulation between a conjunct chromatic tetrachord (C D♭ D F) and a disjunct diatonic one (D E♭ F G), extended by two more chromatic notes, “A♭ and A.”

And if you can follow that, you know a lot more music theory than I do. Maybe someone can translate?

I just watched a fascinating documentary on youtube that reveals how music is being employed in mind control. It goes into the history, but doesn’t mention any national anthems or hymns, both of which are primary examples of music mind control. The amazing thing is that Satanist Death Metal is actually used as the soundtrack on the iPods of the soldiers at war these days. These are not prayers to Apollo, my friends, but prayers to Satan. It sort of makes me uncomfortable, but then I can’t watch my kids play shooter video games without squirming and running from the room in horror, and I’m sure a lot of kids are playing Death Metal while playing shooter games these days, getting ready for the day when they can have a blast doing the real thing with real blood splatters (and if that doesn’t work out, they can don their battle gear and shoot up the local movie theater with their iPod playing their favorite hymn to Satan). A lot of our media is actually designed to help people kill people. See, unless you’re a psycho or longtime user of SSRI’s, killing people runs against your deepest instincts. So before you go to war, it’s best if you get re-programmed, otherwise the post-traumatic stress is going to wreck your life anyway.

Even more disturbing, the same music is used as torture at Guantanamo Bay prison, a site that has been created to brainwash and prepare MKULTRA robots for ops for the next 30 years, no doubt. It’s all part of the evolution of the science of torture and mind control. If they weren’t using death metal, it could just as easily be Sesame Street or Wagner or anything else. You just have to play it loud enough so that the person being tortured can’t hear themselves think, which means they can’t think. After 200 or 300 days of continuous music torture, they’ll introduce a messiah figure to rescue you. This figure will be used as your psychic guiding light for the rest of your life and will finally save you from the evil dude who has been physically and verbally messing with you for months. Some day that messiah may even send you on a mission where you get killed, but they won’t tell you about that in advance. After you’ve been a useful tool in the geopolitical game of drugs, guns and manufactured conflict for profit, your mental wreckage will be easily discarded. So get ready for the names of those people tortured in Cuba to start showing up on the most-wanted lists around the world because you know that’s the sort of blowback you can expect from this operation.

My Thoughts on Black Magic

with 8 comments

In the year 2000, just before my wife was about to give birth to our first child, she became obsessed with the numbers 11:11. We ended up buying a house in Woodstock, and the fact the street address was 11 was very important to her. Twice a day, my wife would remind me whenever the clock hit 11:11. She told me there was something very important about 11:11, although I thought she was just joking around. Since I played a role in spreading the 420 pot code around the globe, I assumed my wife wanted to get in on some numerology of her own. But then, I always thought my wife was psychic, although it was nearly impossible for her to channel those energies, she just had to accept whatever insights came down the pike.

Imagine my surprise, when on September 11, 2001, American Airlines flight 11 hit the World Trade Center. Yes, 11:11 really happened. And it was obviously planned to happen that way for a long time. The number 11 is obviously a symbol for the Twin Towers. Can this really be an accident? I doubt it.

Trine Day is by far the best publishing company in the world. Not just because they published my only hardback book (Octopus Conspiracy), but because they are the only publisher who shows no fear of the establishment. They’ve already been to court over one of their books and won a case that was initiated to put them out of business. Year after year, the very best conspiracy research comes out of Trine Day.

But the reality is that most authors in this field, knowingly or unknowingly, are subject to constant attempts to spin their research into rabbit holes. After I got involved with Trine Day, they introduced me to Mike Ruppert and Alex Constantine. But after working with both for a few years, however, I came to the sad conclusion they were both likely professional disinfo artists. It just shows you what a minefield conspiracy research really is, and how easy it can be to lead people down a garden path if you have more facts than the average person at your disposal.

If you check my blog, you’ll see I have routinely praised many new releases from Trine Day over the years, and never really criticized any of their books—until now. But yesterday, I put up a guide to disinfo that included my assessment of a recent Trine Day book with the humble title of The Most Dangerous Book in the World, a book written by a member of the neo-conservative movement, S.K. Bain. In the book, Bain asserts that 9/11 was orchestrated around the elements of Aleister Crowley’s theories on magic.

There is no doubt Crowley was an interesting dude. He was a great mountain climber, a respected poet, came from a distinguished family, and experimented with drugs long before most people even knew what they were. Crowley was obsessed with uncovering the science behind magic, but much of his work seems dated these days. Because of his output, however, it’s fairly easy to twist his ideas to fit just about anything you want. Magic is all in the mind of the believer.

Crowley’s real legacy is probably Scientology, a mind control op for sure, and one constructed after the founder, L. Ron Hubbard, got involved with Crowley’s OTO lodge in California led by rocket scientist Jack Parsons. But then all religion is a mind control op. Did you know the Mormon faith may have been invented to sweep up Freemasons who were abandoning that culture after fears swept through their temples that the British were secretly controlling masonry from inside it’s highest councils? The Mormon rituals are just updates on the Mason rituals. So who’s magic is more powerful, the Freemasons, the Mormons or Crowley?

When the Franklin Savings and Loan scandal erupted and threatened to spread a cancer into the highest levels of government, former FBI agent Ted Gunderson was brought in for damage control. Gunderson soon began spreading the story that millions of Satanists were part of a secret network of evil and they were routinely brainwashing and abusing our children.

The sad reality is this Satanist story was likely invented and spread as a rabbit hole. Sure there are evil Satanists in the world, although to be a Satanist you first have to believe in Christianity. Despite decades of investigation, however, not a single Satanist crime cell has ever been uncovered. More often, innocent victims have been branded as Satanists just because they dress in black or listen to Metallica or like group sex. At least, that’s what happened in West Memphis. If you want to see some magic in action, check out children’s TV programming. You’ll find loads of dark magic almost everywhere you look.

When it comes to conspiracy research, however, I’ve always trusted my instincts. And my instincts tell me the attempt to run the 9/11 story into an Aleister Crowley ritual event will never result in any useful information about anything. I believe that story is a carefully constructed rabbit hole, just like the one Ted Gunderson created to move attention away from CIA mind control experiments. The CIA is the source of the ritual abuse that took place in Nebraska, and by creating a “Satanic Panic” Gunderson helped get the CIA off the hook. Now, a similar op is taking place around 9/11.

Yes, 9/11 was a magic ritual event designed to sweep America into war and cover the electronic transfer of billions of dollars at the same time. That’s the real story. But if you start looking for acolytes of Aleister Crowley as being the brains or motivation behind the event, I’m afraid that search may not be any more fruitful than Gunderson’s widespread Satanic investigations, none of which resulted in a single arrest or even uncovered a single cell of criminals. You see, blaming Aleister Crowley for most of the evil in the world simply doesn’t pass the muster of my instincts.

Ira Einhorn and the Origins of Earth Day

with 2 comments

Maybe you’ve read some of the disinfo stories about how the counterculture was supposedly a government plot to divide and destroy the country? How government agents secretly encouraged rampant drug use in the 1960s to poison the minds of a new generation, allowing them to be brought under the influence of “new age” ideas? I don’t believe many of these stories, especially the ones that try to paint Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters as being involved in such activities. Yes, Kesey did get his first taste of acid through a CIA-program, like a lot of people did at the time, but anyone who studies his life immediately realizes Kesey was not on anyone’s leash. The same can be said for Abbie Hoffman, Stephen Gaskin, Wavy Gravy, Paul Krassner, Tom Forcade and many other important leaders of the counterculture movement. Which is not to say intel wasn’t trying to exploit the counterculture, turn it violent and lead it off a cliff. Obviously, any social movement of any size will be quickly penetrated by intel. That’s what they do. And there are a number of suspicious characters, like Ron Stark, who obviously had secret agendas. Another such character is Ira Einhorn, who sometimes gets credited as one of the founders of the environmental movement.

Einhorn’s early claim to fame was his role as “master of ceremonies” at the first Earth Day celebration, but you won’t find that mentioned on the wikipedia page covering that event today, probably because he’s currently in prison serving a life sentence for murdering his ex-girlfriend, Holly Maddux, who was found stuffed in a trunk on his porch in 1979. Although portrayed as a “hippie guru,” Einhorn’s associations and connections seem much more related to CIA activities than anything to do with the hippie counterculture. He was mentored in paranormal research by Andrija Puharich, a former army officer who has interesting connections not only to the intelligence agencies but also to the oligarchy that really rules North America. Puharich is best known today for bringing Uri Geller to fame, but he was also involved with MKULTRA research at Fort Dietrick, as well as organizing black magic seances in upstate New York with members of the Bronfman and DuPont families, among others. You can find background material on Puharich in both Peter Levenda’s Sinister Forces (now out-of-print and very expensive), and Hank Albarelli’s A Terrible Mistake (both published by Trine Day). There’s probably enough in those two books to convince you that anyone mentored by Puharich should be looked at with suspicion.  After Einhorn’s arrest, Arlen Specter, the Warren Commission lawyer who invented the “single bullet” theory, came to his rescue along with Barbara Bronfman, heiress to the Seagram fortune. At the time, Einhorn claimed he was being framed by the CIA because of his left-wing political activities. Specter managed to get him a very low bail, which Bronfman posted, and Einhorn fled the country, probably with funds provided by Bronfman. In 1997, long after he was convicted in absentia, Einhorn was located living in France under a new name with a Swedish girlfriend. After a long and protracted extradition struggle, Einhorn was finally brought back to Pennsylvania on July 20, 2001, and put in jail to serve his life sentence. The lesson to be taken from all of this is the potential realization that all popular mass movements eventually become penetrated by intelligence operations. The environmental movement of today, spearheaded by Al Gore, is undoubtedly also a carefully-constructed operation. The right-wing has their apocalypse, centered on the Middle East and ideas about “rapture,” while the left-wing has their apocalypse, centered on the imminent collapse of our environment. Apocalyptic thinking is crucial to maintaining mass mind control because fear is the foundation for that control. The most apocalyptic of all the sixties cults was the Process Church of Final Judgment, who managed to capture and influence Charlie Manson when he appeared in the Haight straight out of a long stretch in prison.
