Leviathan – The “Crooked Serpent”.

לִ וִ יָ תָ ן

Livyatan (“LiVYaThaN” – Leviathan) – As in Hebraic Tradition, the name is spelled from Right-to-Left.


“The Crooked/Bent Serpent” – May also be a reference to the constellation Draco, or the Ouroboros, or similar. – From the Semitic Texts: Often referred to the infernal beast of the seas, as being serpentine or serpent-like. Some viewed it as the guardian of the Seventh Gate into the Underworld. Others knew of it as one of the symbols of one of the “Seven Deadly Sins” mentioned in the Semitic Texts. I have found that the Hebraic/Aramaic character “Teth”, ( ט ), is a good symbolic representation of Leviathan for symbol and image magic. It is a fairly simple symbol to use, and comes from the culture(s) who originated some of the more recent myths about him.

Another legend had it that there were once two of them and that “God” destroyed one of them to prevent them from procreating more of their kind. Leviathan was one of three such infernal beasts, together with Behemoth and Ziz, that were to be killed at the end of times by God, and served up as a great feast to his children (ostensibly, the “Israelites” of the Old Testament).

Leviathan is considered to be as one of the main deities of the seas and oceans. “He” was often associated with the tidal waves and various turbulent conditions out at sea. Can also be considered akin to, if not another name for, the Kraken from Ancient Greek Mythology.

Whereas Leviathan is associated very strongly with the Element of Water, He is also associated with Darkness, and the Darkened Moon. Leviathan can be a VERY POWERFUL force to be reckoned with (by MY OWN experiences working with Him [and sometimes, as a “She”])! So great care is cautioned when looking to summon Leviathan for any kind of working. Leviathanic Magic is very good for opening blocks and also for seeking answers in the darkness and shadows.

Leviathan has been a great help in removing some of those impossible obstacles that other means have failed at. Best to summon him at night towards the darkest Moon (in otherwords, within a few days before the New Moon – to get the full effect). If you have the opportunity to conduct your ritual/ceremony on the night of a Black Moon, be prepared to be amazed and astonished. Leviathan’s power is greatest on nights like these. It is also highly-advised that you have a good, solid circle, and everything set up to balanced energies. If you are working with a partner of the opposite sex, you may both do the working by calling on “polarities”, that is – calling the Masculine and Feminine aspects of Leviathan separately, with each of you taking on the aspects of that particular polarity you call. (I have an example Dark Moon Ritual I have done that I will upload and format later.)

If you are assuming the role (IE: “Invoking” Leviathan), please do make very sure you are properly grounded and of good health and mental alertness to handle the coming surge of energy. By Invoking Leviathan, you are inviting Him into your Being and will be expected to handle the massive amounts of His energy flowing throughout you! – You have be so cautioned.

The Warning from The Great Red Dragon.

This was a Prophecy, as given to me, by the Divine Prominence of the Great Red Dragon of the Ancients.


An image that kept repeating itself to me lately.

I had learned a bit more from a Hopi Prophecy that predates anything related to Christianity, Catholicism, and any of the other Abrahamic religions, lately. It was interesting and intriguing how the legend and myth bore so many similarities (symbolically) to many of the “prophecies” one can read from the Bible’s “Book of Revelation”, and other works. It also reminded me of the Norse Mythology of the “Time of Fire and Ice” in the lead up to Ragnarok. I also had some memories of what I read from the Rig Veda concerning Vrtra (their name for the Red Serpent or Dragon).

In virtually all of these stories,

There was mentioned the “End of the Age(s)”, or in the current interpretation of the Biblical Revelation, The End of the World”. I speak to this as someone who first learned about evolution, mass-extinctions, and the constant changes our Earth undergoes, long before ever being exposed to the spiritual traditions and mysteries of the various earthly religions. Though I have probably forgotten far more than I could possibly realize, much of it is starting to come back to me in the form of connective dreams, images, and “feelings” (I AM an empath, after all).

So, let’s start off with a few “data points” so that we can get a better grasp of where I am going with this post.

In understanding that nothing in the Universe, let alone our little world, remains as constant or in any fashion of “sameness”, it comes as no surprise to the observant as well as astute occult student and theologians that our past ancestors were apparently very well aware of the changes and the rough-guestimate time periods of these changes. They noticed the great and small cycles as evidenced in Nature, here on Earth, and in the Heavens above. Many of the ancient structures that were unearthed, and many that are still yet to be re-discovered, hold many clues as to what many of our ‘primitive’ ancestors had accumulated for knowledge about this mysterious Earth. One thing that was a common finding; various charts, diagrams, written mythologies and legends (in very symbolic and numerologic language) tell the tales of these once existing cultures and nations’ possession of the knowledge of cycles and periodic events. Many of these legends and myths have turned out to have a lot of truth in them after all!

The Procession (and Precession) of Equinoxes being one of the most important markers of the various cycles and great “ages” come and gone. We look, for instance, into the various stories and legends in the Bible (because this is where I am most familiar with some of the specifics). The numerology and symbolism is very present throughout all of the Bible’s various “books”. Though most Catholics, Christians, and various derivative religions will vehemently refute and deny this truth, it becomes very obvious when these texts are compared very closely with the ancient religious texts of legends and myths from other, more ancient cultures. There is a common trend and understanding to be attained when one looks past the “literal interpretations” of the texts. The symbolism screams the message that so many “literal-ists” miss.

The Mayan and Aztec Calenders are also interesting sources for interesting information through the use of symbolism, numerology, and contexts in which they are to be understood. The three different calenders representing the three different cyclical measuring systems and sets of cycles. The main one being of the measurement of the Great Calender and how its cycles are an astonishing 64,000,000 ( 64 Million ) years in length, beginning to end! Guess what??? – So our Earth’s geologic “eras” are about 62.5 million to about 65 million years in duration! What an interesting coincidence: “Science proves, yet again, that the ancients were obviously knowledgeable about their world and the cycles of Nature – in excess of what we, today, know!”

Since my travels with the Dragon Spirit(s),

I have learned to look more closely at the patterns of Nature, and the bits of information to be found from many of the ancient cultures. Much of which can have serious consequences to those who choose to ignore. – In other words, “IGNORE THEM AT YOUR OWN PERIL!” I have had recurrent dreams and imagery that would seem very prophetic, except that these dreams have also showed me where to look and what questions to ponder while wandering this life. If I had the appropriate equipment, I would rather have done a serious video presentation for everyone so that they see the face of the messenger who brings these warnings to a still-sleepy world. I thank and forever hold debt to the Great Dragon for revealing to me the pattern that followed and the Path to higher understanding to be able to discern that which I have before me: ” Knowledge and clarity that has eluded so many. ” – The other Children of Dragons should already be awakened and becoming aware of what these great changes mean to all of us (all Kindreds and all Spirits).

Now, on to the warnings as given me this day.

We are towards the end of this Age. We are towards that point where endless darkness is about to spread its wings in every direction. This darkness, though not necessarily evil, just is as it is. It is the “pause” between the machinations of the Ages, much like that pause of silence between thoughts, the pause between breaths. We are about to experience a “pause” in between the Ages, but this pause will be much longer for us than many in the past. This because we are about to pause between two Great Ages, One of Fire, and the one of Ice. We have passed the current Age of Fire and are about to meet up with the next Age of Ice. We can see this happening now by looking at the quickening of the increases in ice masses at BOTH of the polar regions (even though, the various “agencies” and organizations say we are “warming” – all to convince the peoples to give up everything that belongs to them, including their basic rights). These increases in ice mass, yearly, have very quickly increased in frequency and in percentages. This means that much of the accumulating ice masses are far out-pacing the usual Summer melt-offs, are actually gaining mass much like a snowball gains mass as it is rolling down a snow covered hillside.

As the polar regions are actually growing, this means less water is being returned into the atmosphere (through evaporation, rain, and flowing streams and rivers) than is being taken up to form the increased mass of ice and snow. With less water being “re-flowed” back into the Natural system, this means less rainfall in certain areas of the world. If the Earth was warming, as the scare-mongers keep bleating, this melted-off ice would have returned into the Natural system aplenty, and we should not be seeing as many localized and regionalized droughts that we are seeing now! So, in essence, our various land-based bodies of water are being fed less and less by dwindling rainfall – because there is less water being made available FOR rainfall – because it is being “locked -up” in ice at the poles!

The Sun (or “Son” in some religious doctrines) also has a great effect upon the Earth’s and the neighboring planets’ ecosystems and general climates. The more solar activity our Sun experiences, the more solar energy our Earth is exposed to. The more solar flares and sunspots, the more actively our Earth’s weather changes to very placid and calm. The warmer that particular time period (several years) gets. If our Sun has a weaker solar-cycle (IE: fewer sunspots and flares), we see more clouds in our atmosphere and therefore, more storms. We also have a considerably cooler year or more, until the next great solar activity “bump”. This passing Solar Cycle has been an especially weak one in that there have been far fewer solar flares and sunspots than has been recorded for a long time! Our solar cycles have also progressively gotten longer in duration. Weaker Solar Cycles, and lengthier durations of these weaker cycles is quite telling! These make for cooler conditions that trend towards the formation of more ice and ice mass on the poles, and a gradual expansion of the polar areas in to regions that are now seeing shorter growing seasons and longer, harsher winters.

The last major “Ice Age” that lasted, perhaps a few centuries, followed along what became known the Maunder Minimum: That point where Solar activity is almost non-existent. This thought to be as if the Sun were simply “sleeping” for a time period, before beginning a new series of active Solar Cycles. The Hopi stories of the “Fifth Sun” speak clearly of this cycle and others like it. By their estimates, we may be facing a century-long Ice Age, as is cyclical on a 5,200-year boundary. I have not yet cross-referenced this with any of the Mayan Calender epochs, but will probably find something interesting nonetheless. The previous Major Ice Age covered virtually all of the Northern side of the American Continent as well as much of the Southern end of the American Continent. If we are to see another Ice Age to the likeness of that one, the only places that will have decent climate and weather during those years will probably be between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn (the Equatorial “band” as I know of it).

One other aspect that I have learned some years ago,

Imagine being an observer outside of our galaxy. Now notice that everything works in a cyclical, rotating habit. Our Moon circles the Earth, The Earth circles the Sun, Our Sun and its “Solar System” circles the galaxy. This is a grand picture of, “As Above, So Below. As Below, So Above.” Cycles in Nature come in all sizes and forms, large and small. Our Earth’s axis parallels the Sun’s axis. Our Sun’s axis also parallels the Galactic axis (of the center of the galaxy). However, none of these circles are perfectly round as we imagine them to be. They also are not totally planar, they “oscillate” like a Sine Wave which is the nature of cycles in general. Though these oscillations may not be as noticeable in our own solar system, but they are significantly larger deviations if we are thinking at the galactic level. This is because the galaxy is immensely larger than our “little solar system”. Our solar system is like a mere speck of dust in comparison to the grand size if the galaxy. Therefore, such oscillations and deviations are going to be proportionally larger in scale.

Another look at what our galaxy looks like. (We have a lot of galactic neighbors, and the wonders of the Hubble Space Telescope to help us see them!) We are likely to think of our galaxy as almost as flat (planar) as a dish or plate. The planar portion of the galaxy is where most of the orbiting “Suns” and other stars, with their attendant planets and planetary bodies orbiting them, are to be found orbiting the galactic center. Because there are far more such bodies in this area, it is thought that the galactic planar mass also has the strongest cumulative gravity interacting between each orbiting system. We notice certain strange things happening with our planet’s climate and weather patterns when we have a solar alignment of several planets and (and planetoids) parallel to one another in the form of an axis. So it makes the most sense to see this relationship of inter-gravitational effects (again, cumulative effects) at the galactic level too! (Nature seems to LOVE parallels!)

This could also explain why we have been seeing more “near-Earth” objects passing so close to us – “we” are getting closer to the other orbiting objects within the disc-shaped galactic planar mass.

Now, taking some of the various mythologies about a Red Serpent/Dragon being part of the onslaught of “destruction” in this world, brings me a greater curiosity. The star in question is Sirius “B”. It seems that it was recorded (in ancient texts?) that it periodically extends in Two directions from its mass (a Red Star), to form what appears to be a Great Serpent! To take away from these ancient myths and legends: This happens BEFORE the catastrophic events take place here on Earth. Therefore, is it that Sirius “B” is actually a “warning” to all of us that we are approaching that “danger zone” into the galactic planar mass where we are most likely to see a planetary-collision from loose objects (like asteroids, comets, and other huge chunks of “space-rock”)? I would tend to think so on the basis of the reading of these ancient mythologies. – It also happens to align with the 62.5-65 million-year cycles on Earth: The SAME kind of cycle known for Extinction-Level-Events ( “ELE’s” ). So HOW old is this present “Era”, the Cenozoic Era? – Almost 65 Million Years’ old! – Did the Mayans and/or their ancestors know something that we are still not yet seeing ??? Their Great Calender at its longest cycle was almost 65 Million years’ in length! We just thought about the Mayan Calender ending in late 2012. Were we correct on the time alignments with their Great Calender to ours? Maybe not.

Anyway, the image that came to me was one of a galactic origin. We may presently find our little Solar System about to be challenged whilst it begins its journey into the plane of the galaxy. Being that this is also much closer to other “neighboring” stars, systems, and wandering space rocks, we may find ourselves witnessing more near-Earth objects passing very closely by us. (This seems to be what is being deliberately under- or unreported by our various “space-watcher”-organizations! – All ostensibly to keep us all from worrying about it.) We also have the other specter to consider: The fact that most of our natural cloud-making actions come from particulates that originate from outside of our inner-space (Ionosphere, Stratosphere, etc.). If we are to be within the galactic plane, we are also much closer to a more dense source of tiny, cloud-friendly “dust particles”. So along with the weakening of our Sun’s Solar Cycles (IE: less energy being directed at Earth) as part of its “hibernation”, we have more contributing particulates towards more cloud cover around our world. – Therefore, with all of these natural, cyclical events about to come full circle, we stand a very good chance of seeing what the end of an “era”, in geological terms, looks like. Therefore, if it can be seen that our “Red Serpent” comes into existence (through a very good telescope – pointed towards Sirius “B”), our “messenger” has spoken. Times will indeed get very interesting for all inhabitants on Earth!

About Shamanism – Ancient Healing

ABOUT SHAMANISM
From: Shamanic Healing,
www . freewebs . com / shamanism

 So what is shamanic healing then?

Shamanic healing is one of the vast numbers of healing modalities available for us to experience today. Like acupuncture, its roots are in the mists of time and like acupuncture it works with unseen energy. Acupuncture is usually associated with the East, while there have been shamanic healers for thousands of years in tribal communities all around the world.

Is this something that can help me with today’s problems?

There are also many contemporary practitioners of this ancient healing art.
Traditionally a shaman was someone who was able to communicate with the spirits and visit other realities with their own spirit allies. This is still the case in modern shamanism.

How does it work ?

A shamanic practitioner will use a drum or rattle to access an altered state of consciousness. In this altered state she is able to enter the lower world, the middle world or the upper world which are the unseen other realities. Here in the other worlds she journeys with her power animal and helpers to ask for healing for whoever has requested her services.

What does a shamanic healer see as the cause of life’s difficulties and challenges?

Shamanic healing is about energy, and typically the shamanic practitioner sees lack of health and well being on any level as being about loss of energy in some form.

Can you explain more about Soul Loss?

Trauma, stress, abuse and serious accident at any time in one’s life can result in loss of life force, vital energy or essence which is known as ‘soul loss’.

In order to survive seriously challenging situations a soul part leaves the individual and takes refuge in one of the other worlds, taking with it some of the life force. It does this to assist overall survival.

However, it often results in depression, apathy, inability to move on after a loss or death or problems with the immune system. It is the job of the shamanic healer to track down this soul part in the other worlds, to offer it healing and reassurance and to invite it to return and bring back its positive qualities.

This is known as ‘soul retrieval’

And what about Power Loss?

Another issue addressed by the modern day shamanic healer is that of ‘power loss.’

Power loss is widespread and may be caused by confrontation, exams ill health, unrelenting problems, lack of community support, erosion of self- esteem, stressful family circumstances or manipulative relationships. Without our inherent vitality and connection to the cosmic web we become dis-empowered, dejected and dispirited. The shamanic solution is for the healer to journey to the lower world to retrieve the individual’s power animal. Power then returns along with the ability to approach life more confidently and deal with the challenges it presents.

The ancient practice of shamanic healing is alive and well and is very useful for an individual who recognizes any of the symptoms referred to. It can support therapy or counseling when it feels as if an impasse has been reached. It is also useful for a personal development coach to have a shamanic practitioner on their referral list as a individually tailored shamanic sessions to retrieve soul parts and/or a power animal will give the individual more energy and incentive to design and work towards life goals.

Evolving Generations
Breaking Family Cycles

It is easy to believe that in leaving our childhood homes and embarking upon the journey of adulthood, we have effectively removed ourselves from harmful and self-perpetuating familial patterns. In looking closely at ourselves, however, we may discover that our behaviours and beliefs are still those that were impressed upon us during our youth by our parents, grandparents, and the generations that preceded them.

We may find ourselves unconsciously perpetuating cycles of the previous generations, such as fear of  not having enough, not showing affection, and secrecy patterns. Yet the transmission of negative patterns from one generation to the next is not inevitable. It is possible to become the endpoint at which negative family cycles that have thrived for generations are exhausted and can exert their influence no longer.

Breaking the pattern is a matter of overcoming those values imprinted upon us long ago in order to replace them with pure love, tolerance, and conscious awareness.

Even if you have struggled with the cumulative effects of family cycles that were an expression of established ways of living and a reflection of the strife your ancestors were forced to endure, you can still liberate yourself from the effects of your family history. The will to divest yourself of old, dark forms of familial energy and carry forth a new loving energy may come in the form of an epiphany. You may one day simply realize that certain aspects of your early life have negatively affected your health, happiness, and ability to evolve as an individual. Or you may find that in order to transcend long-standing patterns of limiting beliefs, irrational behavior, and emotional stiltedness, you have to question your values and earnestly examine how your family has impacted your personality. Only when you understand how family cycles have influenced you can you gain freedom from those cycles.

To truly change, you must give yourself permission to change. Breaking family patterns is  not an act of defiance or betrayal. It is important that you trust yourself implicitly when determining the behaviors and beliefs that will help you overwrite the generation-based cyclical value system that limited your individual potential. Many people are on the earth at this time to break family cycles, for all of you are true pioneers. In breaking negative family cycles, you will discover that your ability to express your feelings and needs grows and that you will embark upon a journey toward greater well-being that can positively impact generations to come.

Shamanic healing is one way to address this.

The deeds of an ancestor can create family karma that continues to influence the fate of the family’s descendants until the karma is dissolved.”
Dr Hiroshi Motoyama (Shinto priest)

Lugh the “Long-Arm”

LUGH – THE LONG-ARM

A short description.

Lugh, The Long-Arm

 Lugh was often known as “Lugh, the Long-Arm” to the Ancient Irish-Celts. He was worshiped as a Solar Deity or Sun God and was said to be skilled in every Craft, Art, and Skill. He was also a skilled and very capable Healer as well as one of the most famous Warriors. His most notable accomplishment was in leading his tribe, the Tuatha de Danaan, to victory of the Fomorians in the Battle of the Magh.

 Although, alleged description of Lugh varied from culture to culture, a common theme was of a man who had radiant Blond hair, very fair complexion as was common for his people, and fairly tall with a muscular build. ( An ideal physique for a strong warrior. ) As one of the most revered and beloved Deities in the Celtic Pantheon, Lugh was worshiped in many Germanic cultures where he was also known by the names; Lamfada, Lug, Lleu, Lugo, and Lugos.

 Lugh was identified with the Roman God; Mercury, for his skill in the many arts, crafts, and skills. Lugh”s following was known from places like Ireland through to the Southern part of Europe and Eastward towards part of what is presently Poland. His stories were told in cities like Lyons, Loudun, Laon, Leon, Lieden, Leignitz, Carlisle, and Vienna. There were even cities named after Lugh in his honor.

 Even today, several cultures and many Pagans still celebrate the holiday; Lammas, or Lughnassadh in the late Summer to commemorate Lugh.
