Boneset – Eupatorium perfoliatum

Parts used: leaf, flower

Traditional uses: Used as a purgative. Infusion taken for colds. Used as a tonic, sudorific, stimulant, emetic and antiseptic. Infusion taken for “ague,” colds and flu. Used as a stimulant. Infusion taken for sore throat. Decoction of plant used as a gentle emetic. Plant used as a fever medicine.

“Stimulant, febrifuge and laxative. It acts slowly and persistently, and its greatest power is manifested upon the stomach, liver, bowels and uterus. It is regarded as a mild tonic in moderate doses, and is also diaphoretic, more especially when taken as a warm infusion, in which form it is used in attacks of muscular rheumatism and general cold. In large doses it is emetic and purgative. Many of the earlier works allude to this species as a diuretic, and therefore of use in dropsy, but this is an error, this property being possessed by Eupatorium purpureum, the purple-flowered Boneset, or Gravel Root. It has been much esteemed as a popular febrifuge, especially in intermittent fever, and has been employed, though less successfully, in typhoid and yellow fevers. It is largely used by the negroes of the Southern United States as a remedy in all cases of fever, as well as for its tonic effects. As a mild tonic it is useful in dyspepsia and general debility, and particularly serviceable in the indigestion of old people. The infusion of 1 OZ of the dried herb to 1 pint of boiling water may be taken in wineglassful doses, hot or cold: for colds and to produce perspiration, it is given hot; as a tonic, cold. As a remedy in catarrh, more especially in influenza, it has been extensively used and with the best effects, given in doses of a wineglassful, warm every half hour, the patient remaining in bed the whole time; after four or five doses, profuse perspiration is caused and relief is obtained. It is stated that the popular name Boneset is derived from the great value of this remedy in the treatment of a species of influenza which had much prevailed in the United States, and which from the pain attending it was commonly called Break-Bone Fever. This species of Eupatorium has also been employed in cutaneous diseases, and in the expulsion of tapeworm.” ~Grieve MH

*** Cautions: Contains trace amounts of the toxin pyrrolizidine. Caution should be taken when using internally. Large doses emetic. *** 

Tea for fevers and chills – “Boneset tea is a favorite remedy for chills, fever, and ague.” ~Randolph OMF 107

Root tea for colds – “My mother says as a child she had malaria with chills every other day and fever. An old aunt of her mothers came to visit and told her brothers to go into the woods and get the root of a certain plant called ‘bone set’. She took the roots, washed them, and boiled them, and made a tea. This my mother had to drink, and it cured her, and she has never had a chill to this day.” ~Parler FBA II 1767

Applied to body for malaria – “A cure for malaria is to take the oil from a plant called a bone set (Eupatorium) and apply to the person with malaria.” ~Parler FBA III 2676

The free and independent individual « Jon Rappoport’s Blog

By Jon Rappoport

“Now we have a whole army of experts, whose job is to tell you success only comes with you being part of a group. Your status as an individual is transmitted to you through some diabolical portion of your brain that is loaded with false messages. Therefore, give up on the greatest adventure in the world. Take the elevator down to the basement, get off, and join the crowd. That’s where the love is. That’s where your useless courage dissolves into sugar, and the chorus of complaints will be magically transformed into a paradise of the lowest common denominator. Give up the ghost. You’re home. The sun never rises or sets. Nothing changes. The same sameness rules.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

Since the 1960s, many people have decided that, in order to create the future they want, they should engage in a certain amount of introspection.

Spiritual or psychological introspection.

I have encountered a large number of such people, who have swung the balance to the point where introspection has become indecision and paralysis.

There are “so many issues to consider.”

Starting in the 1960s, we saw the import of various Eastern philosophies and practices. They arrived here in diluted and distorted forms. They introduced their own versions of “karma” and “balance” and “surrender” and “abdication to the wishes of the universe.”

“If it doesn’t happen, it wasn’t meant to be.”

In the end, it amounts to waiting around in a cosmic station for a train that never arrives.

Or in psychological terms, it is: “I have to resolve my past before I can pursue my future.” “How can I know what I want if I’m trapped in past conflicts?”

The effect of all this was to diminish the potential realm of human action. It was a kind of court case where all the priors of the defendant were allowed into evidence and dominated the verdict.

More recently, another limiter came on to the scene. It is expressed this way: “Now I see through fake reality, I see how reality is being manipulated by the powers-that-be, so what can I do? We’re at the mercy of these forces.”

I could suggest that these vectors were and are an intentional operation, whose purpose is to demoralize the individual and cut him off from his own freedom, independence, and power. And that would be an accurate assessment. But it wouldn’t tell the whole story, for one vital reason:

The individual is the only person who can change his own course. Others can help, but the final decision is his.

That is bedrock.

And here is the superior principle: even if the individual determines that all is hopeless, he should launch his life anyway. Despite all the good reasons to give up, he should ignore all of them and launch his future.

Because if he does that, he soon begins to see his own view change. It’s not the same anymore.

And this is what freedom and independence and power are all about. Bottom line, these qualities are what you take hold of after you know all is hopeless. That’s the acid test.

Every individual, since the dawn of time, has thought himself into smaller and smaller boxes until there is no space left—and then certain individuals, who are spiritual and metaphysical riverboat gamblers, have shoved in all their chips on projecting action in the world anyway…and they revolutionize their destinies.

That’s what some people have called “inequality of outcome.” That’s the basis for it.

We can go even deeper. What is the ultimate purpose of thought and reflection and introspection? Is it to arrive at certain conclusions, after which the thinker (the person) serves those conclusions like a slave? Or is thought itself a process through which ideas then serve the individual and his goals?

It is the latter.

The first great philosopher of the West, Plato, followed the first path. Which is to say, he applied his mind to understand the basis of reality, and he came to the conclusion that there were immortal and pure Ideas that existed in a higher realm, and they were unchangeable. Society, therefore, could only triumph if certain wise men, who could apprehend these Ideas directly, ruled over everyone else. Thus, the freedom and independence and power of open inquiry led to totalitarianism. Freedom led to slavery.

The individual, when all is said and done, is his own ship. However much he may learn about navigation, there comes the moment when he and his ship leave the shore. He explores. He discovers. He invents.

He invents his own future. No matter what.

We would be fools if we didn’t realize that, down through human history, individuals have grasped, for themselves, all these points.

And when the American Republic was invented, these same points were “background.” What were the checks and balances and the separation of powers all about? What was the reason for the enumeration of federal powers and the granting of all other powers to the states and the people? Why was the federal government squeezed at its extremities? Because the free and independent individual was the true coin of the realm. He needed latitude. He needed legal protection, in the best way it could be provided, from arbitrary power.

Otherwise, why bother?

The Constitution was far more than an extension of independence from England. The men who wrote the Articles and the Bill of Rights, and the men who voted for them and ratified them—to now argue for or against their “deeper motives” is, in the end, a distraction from the fact that the Constitution contains ideas that aid the liberation of the free and independent individual.

The ideas still stand.

They are predicated on the notion that these individuals exist and will launch, despite all reasons not to, their own creative desires and make them fact in the world.

Give us your huddled masses yearning to be free. Masses? No. A mass can never be free. And even if a mass can successfully demand freedom, on whom does that bounty then fall? The individual. This is where the buck stops, and no one can change that truth.

There are those who believe a quiet lake is the end of all existence. And then a boat comes along, and the ripples begin spreading. An individual has arrived.

You can be the person looking at the lake, banking on no-action, or you can be in the boat, forwarding your best ideas and visions and dreams, despite all the reasons not to.

What Chuck Schumer is revealing out in the open « Jon Rappoport’s Blog

By Jon Rappoport

Senator Chuck Schumer on MSNBC: “We’re no longer fact-based. The founding fathers created a country based on fact. We don’t have a fact base. If Breitbart News and the New York Times are regarded with equal credibility, you worry about this democracy.”

First of all, in Schumer’s opening sentence, who is this “we”? There is an implication that the “we” is somehow monolithic and centralized. But people have been in disagreement about facts and what they mean since the dawn of time. People have rejected centralized sources of facts, from kings and queens and priests, to newspapers and television news.

In the same way that 99% of economists assume society must be planned and centralized, Schumer and “the people in power” assume media must operate as a centralized force—as if it’s a natural law.

They just assume it, because until recently, it was the case, it was cozy and easy. But not now. And they’re angry and shocked. They see their foundation of propaganda and mind control slipping away.

You must appreciate how secure they used to feel. It was a cake walk, a picnic in the park. The definition of “fact” was: whatever centralized media said it was. What could be simpler? And to them, that was “democracy.”

Feed the people lies, hide deeper truth, slam dunk.

Then along came independent media.

Boom.

It turned out millions of people were interested.

The cat jumped out of the bag.

I know about this. I’ve been letting cats out of bags since 1982.

That’s longer than some of my readers have been alive.

I also know about censorship, because almost from the beginning of my work as a reporter, I had stories turned down by major media outlets and even alternative outlets. I saw the handwriting on the wall.

Chuck Schumer is echoing what many of his colleagues—and far more powerful people—are worrying about. Their vaunted mouthpieces, the NY Times, the Washington Post, etc., are failing. They can’t carry the same old freight with impunity.

So Schumer “worries about the future of democracy.” What he’s actually worried about has nothing to do with democracy, and it certainly has nothing to do with a Republic, which was the form of this nation from the beginning.

Schumer is worried about decentralization.

He’s worried that people are defecting from the authoritarian arrogant Castle of Truth.

And, given his position, he should be worried.

We are at a tipping point. Needless to say—but I will say it—independent media need your support. Your choice about where you obtain your news makes a difference.

Until a few years ago, I never considered that I was relentless. I was just doing my work. But as I saw the counter-efforts of major media, social media, government, Globalists, and other players, as they tried to reassert their primacy, I found a deeper level of commitment. A person can find many reasons to stop what he is doing. Every person eventually realizes that. But will he give in? Or will he decide to keep going? My choice is reflected on these pages, where I write every day.

Many of my colleagues have made the same choice. As for myself, I take the long, long view. Whatever befalls this civilization, the individual survives. He cannot be erased. I know that as surely as I know I am sitting here.

People like Chuck Schumer are living on a foundation of sand. Their power depends on obfuscation and deception and exchanging favors. When they feel the ground shifting under their feet, they growl and accuse and declaim and resort to fake ideals. If they see their con isn’t working and isn’t selling, then they panic.

Which is a good sign.

Many, many years ago, I had a good relationship with a media outlet. Then one day, the man in charge told me I was “positioning myself” outside the scope of his audience. I was speaking to “different people,” and therefore I should “go my own way.” I could tell he wasn’t happy about saying this, because he thought of himself as an independent, but there it was. He was bending to the demands of “his people.” So we parted company.

I was now further “out there” than I had been before. I was “independent of an ‘independent’ media outlet.” It took me about five minutes to see the joke. A good and useful joke.

As the years rolled on, I kept finding myself in a more independent position, which meant I was writing what I wanted to write, and in the process I was discovering deeper levels of what I wanted to write.

Understanding this changed my political view. If I didn’t stand for the free and independent individual, what did I stand for? If I didn’t keep coming back to THAT, what could I come back to?

It made sense to me then, and it makes sense to me now.

This is why I keep writing about collective, the group, the mass, and the generality, those fake representations of life.

The individual is always free, whether he knows it or not. And therefore, he can choose.

This is what the Chuck Schumers of this world vaguely apprehend on the horizon. They can’t believe what they’re seeing; it’s too horrible a prospect. They reject it as a fantasy. A random nightmare.

But it isn’t a random nightmare.

It’s the potential for an open future.

Decentralized.

Alive.

Back from obscurity.

Back from the late 18th century, when the ideas embedded in the Constitution reflected the desire to unleash the free and independent individual and afford him protection from the powers-that-be.

Planetary Energies
 Moon (Osupa / Yemoja),Sun (Orun / Orunmila, Olofi), Mercury (Esu-Elegbara), Jupiter (Obatala), Saturn (Obaluaiye), Neptune (Olokun), Uranus (Sango), and Venus (Oshun).
 Themes: 
Family, personal values, personal self-worth, loss and gains. Creative inspirations, freedom vs confinement, temptations, and stubbornness.
Welcome to the Taurus new moon! This moon portends a specific time for our consciousness to express strong desires for freedom, self-assuredness which can become stubbornness if not careful. We’ll be confronting many forms of temptations because the Taurus (earthy expression) is about our environment both physical and emotional and what those aspects of ourselves desire or feel secure. Hence, we on a collective level will be observing and discerning if our personal space is secure or perhaps we’re indeed trapped, closed in like a Bull. Only to be “let out” at the leisure of someone else’s pleasure or we’re subservient to some type of addiction. The 12th house, the house of solitude and confinement accentuates this energy field of being enclosed, being removed from the day-to-day realities of life. Like a patient who only watches TV not socializing; are we protecting ourselves from something or avoiding what’s really going on around us? Are we the Bull who eats by someone else’s diet plan and standards in a small stall instead of grazing on its own in a wider open space? This new moon time encourages our collective consciousness to identify how free or trapped we are and if anything, what can or should be done about it? This moon marks a time of ”boundaries.”

Orange Essential Oil May Improve Symptoms of PTSD, Say Researchers – Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

Source: Orange Essential Oil May Improve Symptoms of PTSD, Say Researchers – Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

Post-traumatic stress disorder affects around 8 million adults in the United States, but treatments for the condition are still limited. Orange essential oil may offer a nonpharmaceutical option to help reduce the stress and fear associated with the disorder, suggests research carried out by scientists at George Washington University.
[orange essential plant oil]
Early indications show that orange essential plant oil could help to diminish symptoms associated with PTSD.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder often triggered by exposure to stressful, distressing, or frightening events, or the sudden and unexpected death of a loved one.

The person with the disorder tends to relive the traumatic experience through flashbacks and nightmares. The severe anxiety caused by PTSD may last months or even years, and it can have a significant impact on the person’s life.

Chronic stress is thought to play a role in activating and exacerbating inflammation in the peripheral immune system. Research has suggested that peripherally circulating immune cells may be able to cross the blood-brain barrier and cause inflammation in the central nervous system, which may contribute to mental health disorders, including PTSD. However, the link between fear memory and the immune system is not entirely understood.

Furthermore, treatment for PTSD is currently limited to two FDA-approved medications and psychotherapy practices, including cognitive and exposure therapies.

Cassandra Moshfegh, a research assistant in Paul Marvar’s laboratory at the George Washington University, and colleagues sought to investigate the effect of orange essential plant oil on PTSD symptoms. Previous studies have shown that orange essential oil may have a depressant-like effect on the central nervous system.

The team presented the research at the American Physiological Society’s annual meeting during the Experimental Biology 2017 conference, held in Chicago, IL.

Essential oils are naturally produced by plants and can be used for therapeutic purposes. The aromatic compounds of orange essential oil are usually extracted from the peel of the orange. Essential oils can be inhaled, applied to the skin, or ingested in foods or beverages.

Orange essential oil significantly reduced fear-associated behavior

Orange essential oil was tested in mice to determine the impact of the compound on fear memory and immune cell activation. The researchers used Pavlovian Fear Conditioning – a behavioral mouse model – “to study the formation, storage, and expression of fear memories as a model for PTSD.”

Pavlovian Fear Conditioning pairs a tone with a negative stimulus, such as a shock to the foot, which provokes fear as a response in the mice. The mice form an associative memory between the tone and the stimulus. When presented with the tone alone, the mice exhibit a fear response and typically freeze. This response diminishes slowly as time goes on.

Moshfegh and team divided the mice into three groups. The first group of 12 mice was exposed to the audio tone alone, 12 mice received water and fear conditioning, and the remaining 12 mice were exposed to orange essential oil by inhalation 40 minutes prior to and after the fear conditioning.

The researchers found that the mice exposed to orange essential oil were significantly less likely to exhibit freezing behavior and stopped freezing altogether earlier than the mice that received water and fear conditioning. Moreover, the mice exposed to orange essential oil experienced a significant decrease in the immune cells linked to the “biochemical pathways” associated with PTSD.

The mechanism behind the differences in behavior between the two groups could be explained by the variations found in gene expression in their brains.

“Relative to pharmaceuticals, essential oils are much more economical and do not have adverse side effects. The orange essential plant oil showed a significant effect on the behavioral response in our study mice. This is promising because it shows that passively inhaling this essential oil could potentially assuage PTSD symptoms in humans.”

Cassandra Moshfegh

Further studies are needed to unravel the specific effects of orange essential oil on the brain and nervous system, says Moshfegh, and to uncover how these effects reduce “stress and fear in people with PTSD.”

Second New Moon of Spring – Elder Mountain Dreaming

Source: Second New Moon of Spring – Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder MountainGreetings Dreamers, our second new moon of Spring arrives Tuesday, April 26, 2017.  The first moon of each of the four seasons brings forth new beginnings for a three month period. The second moon of each four seasons, expresses the fullness of our emotional life and lastly, the third moon of each of the four seasons brings us a completion of that 3 month season.  This is the “trinity” of lunar work and we now enter it’s fullness of Spring…

The sabian oracle this moon: BRIDGE ACROSS THE DEEP GORGE. The conquest of separateness through cooperation.

The person who has suffered deprivation and loneliness can give new substance to his or her emotional life by participating in a collective project. All great evolutionary challenges imply the overcoming of basic difficulties. A step ahead must be taken, yet an abyss confronts the evolving person. It is no longer a personal void, an “open grave” but a chasm that is an integral part of the “land” upon which our evolution must proceed. A link must be built through the power of the collective and the group or of the community at large, on the basis of the legacy of our ancient past, to make a bridge over the canyon.

This is the first stage of the eighth five-fold process of “substantiation” where skill or spiritual discipline gives substance to and demonstrates our capacity to overcome our obstacles and to achieve a personal evolutionary continuity.

In constellation divination we enter Taurus the Bull, when the sun begins to warm up, and our outdoor work increases, such as planting our gardens, beginning a new project for the seasonal year, taking a hike or even how to spend our extra cash on something of value like planning a vacation for the year. In moon work we prepare emotionally for the seasonal year as well, planting seeds of healing, accepting difficult transformation and increasing awareness.

Zodiak signs by ERTE (1892 - 1990) TaurusBecause our inner emotional life and our outer physical life can never really be separated, we learn to loosen control of keeping them separated, by adding healing structures in order to self nurture and accept that self care as part of our values and personal responsibility.

This moon we have a powerful bucket of energy influencing our learning curve, as all T-Squares (triangle of tension) create for us. I circled it on the chart below and as you can see, the planets Uranus, Mercury, Sun and Moon are all aligned fortifying that T-Square tension. This means the lightening deep within you and your ability to communicate (or lack of) will have an impact within your intention this month.

Those who have set intentions for few years with us, know just how powerful the responses are from life when our intentions are…  ‘too big’.  Be very clear in your intention of inner growth this month and if you had a difficult moon last m, try a simpler intention to give yourself a break.

Venus who rules love, comfort & abundance will also be conjuncting Chiron, the signature of our personal past life karma and the wounded healer which may have a deeper impact on some of you and they are both square Saturn (responsibility). Venus and Taurus are about our ‘values’ and if there is an issue or struggle around our values, like love vs. money, this month use emotional honesty with groundedness.

Waiting for clarity’s direction with your signs and synchronicity can help with your partner or even an x-partner. If you are still working on an ex-partnership issue or an old love, especially if you have children, then this is the moon to set clear boundaries with a little bit of the stubbornness of Taurus the Bull. Venus is ruled by Taurus, so they both want your values to come to the forefront this moon, especially if there is issues around money (sun work).

Taurus New Moon

With Uranus and Jupiter involved in this cycle (again), just like the full moon two weeks ago, then change, chaos, rebel, truth or lies will enter near the full moon again. Expect a continuing theme this month with what you were personally working on last month, except now – we have the ability to be more grounded in this earthy Taurus cycle.

James Burgess says that the degree of this moon’s cycle is about “application” …

“Having power, we expect to apply it, to resist imposition and to overcome obstacles in pursuit of our desires, and this expectation is a compelling motivating force that reaches out to find mountains to climb and oceans to cross. Inevitably, issues arise. Often, dark energies become quite dominant, and we have to come to terms with choices where we are absolutely challenged on matters of principle.

It takes greatness of self-assurance to trust that the dark side will lead to the light, and indeed that there is no other path available to travel if one is to awaken at the very deepest levels of self. The supreme test – to master reality – requires the attitude of a magician, who applies a powerful will, and a profound inner sense of spiritual heritage, in order to shift manifestation around.

In all realms, whether higher or lower, we can play the role of creator. Everything is then seen on a symbolic level as a representation of the deeper hidden truths – and this way of eventually seeing and then living this life becomes a path that supports continual self-renewal. It is found by the wise rather counter-intuitive power hungry. It is the personal influence which arises through complete self-application in service to the needs of others and the complete healing of self.”

Example New Moon intentions :

I respect myself
I apply motivation to where I feel stagnant
I love myself in a healthy way
I value my inner ____________
I am positive

I listen deeply
I practice self control
I use my will to direct my energy
I am balanced
I am responsible for my projections
I use my stubbornness in a positive way

I am strong emotionally (if you feel weak)
I am strong physically (if you feel week)
I protect myself with healthy boundaries
I have safe sexual boundaries
I use my sexual energy in positive ways

I am honest with myself
I express my frustrations in a healthy way
I embrace my new beginning
I am honest with myself

I am responsible for my anger
I embrace joy
I accept my strong emotions

Or come up with one of your own, where you wish to “become aware” of within your own emotional nature! Blessings and happy second moon of Spring !

Ann Coulter UC Berkeley clash reveals massive covert op « Jon Rappoport’s Blog

by Jon Rappoport

April 25, 2017

Conservative firebrand Ann Coulter’s scheduled speech at the U of California Berkeley is off, it’s on, it’s been delayed, the student groups sponsoring her appearance are suing the University, she’ll speak indoors, she’ll speak outdoors, and on it goes.

University officials have said they can’t guarantee Coulter’s security, unless, apparently, she gives her speech during the week in the afternoon while most students are studying for their final exams. Why don’t they schedule her talk somewhere in Alaska at three in the morning? That’ll work, and free speech will emerge victorious.

Aside from paid agitators brought in from the outside by George Soros money, the student body at the University is opposed to Coulter speaking, or they’re too passive to care, or they’re too cowed to step up and demand she has the right to air her ideas.

Here is the op: the University bosses have brought all this on themselves. Their claim that they can’t protect Coulter may be true, but that’s because, for decades, professors have been teaching crap and pap and programmatic socialism and various forms of collectivism, and they have purposely neglected the Bill of Rights and individual freedom.

University bosses have been seeding departments with teachers who are so far to the Left they can’t get dressed in the morning without government aid. And the radical Left is all about debate only in the sense that they want to curtail it, shut it down, destroy dissident voices, and thereby save the world.

So naturally, in the fullness of time, students are going to follow suit and get in line. Rational discussion of opposing ideas? Never heard of it. Why in the world would they allow Ann Coulter on campus to spread dangerous thoughts?

Dangerous=someone somehow might start to think on his/her own, against the prevailing tide.

There is no room for this at UC Berkeley.

Behind this buzzing swarming cloud of totalitarian policy, there are, of course, genuine issues students could be investigating. But that must not happen. I’m talking about money, as in: who is sponsoring research projects at Berkeley? Projects related to the war machine; psychiatric “mental health” toxic-drug research; GMO research; and other mega-corporate favorites.

For example, the book, “Engineering and War: Militarism, Ethics, Institutions, Alternatives,” mentions a $70 million program that links no less than 200 US colleges in a Homeland Security program, to establish a DHS “center of excellence.” “Experts” from UC Berkeley are involved. What’s that all about? Colleges all over the US are cooperating and collaborating.

“Well, let’s keep that project quiet. Instead, let’s have students protesting and rioting against free speech. Let’s have them feeling triggered and demanding safe spaces where they can drink hot chocolate and play with model trains and dolls.”

For many decades, US colleges have been feeding from a federal money trench to aid and abet the national security state. That would include expanding surveillance on American citizens, profiling, and various forms of propaganda, for starters. If you factor in DARPA, the research arm of the Pentagon, you would be talking about research on the brain and cutting edge mind control.

But instead, no, don’t look there; keep Ann Coulter from speaking at Berkeley. Save humanity.

As I reported several months ago, 25% of US college students, last year, were diagnosed or treated for a mental disorder. Let’s not have students thinking about that. Let’s not have them thinking about the toxic effects of the psychiatric drugs. No. Let’s not have them realize they’re guinea pigs in an unending op to addle their brains.

Instead, let’s have them keep Ann Coulter from speaking at Berkeley.

And certainly, as colleges and universities across the US raise their tuition and matriculating costs to the sky—BECAUSE the federal government has a deep-pockets student loan program—let’s not make that connection. Instead, let’s saddle college graduates with massive debt.

As they walk off campus for the last time, contemplating their future of trying to pay down that debt, they can congratulate themselves, because they kept Ann Coulter from coming to Berkeley.

And thus saved the world.

“What did you do at college, Daddy?”

“You mean way back when, before I went on Welfare? I kept a fascist from giving a speech. I can’t remember her name now. But she was a threat, believe me. We had guts. It took a few thousand of us to keep her away. There were rumors she was bringing a few tanks and weaponized anthrax with her…”

Snow White and the Huntsman – secretsoftheserpent

By gserpent

Source: Snow White and the Huntsman – secretsoftheserpent

Snow White and the Huntsman is a spin-off the Brothers Grimm ‘Snow White’. What most people don’t know is that the Brothers Grimm got this story from Egypt. The original story was based on astronomy, Snow White being the moon and the seven dwarves being the seven known planets following the moon in the sky. The creators of this movie knew this and they put a sly little part in the movie to show the original meaning. It also was a slight jab at science.

Like all good movies the characters in this story are aspects of yourself. This movie was covertly showing true history, but what I really like about it is that it’s a story of ‘waking up’ for the feminine. Most movies are showing you the masculine and its wake up process, but this one flips roles. The reason why they have an evil Queen and Snow White being all things good and pure is because they represent Nature. Nature is the sacred feminine. She can be pure and beautiful, but also very destructive. Two expressions of a single reality, Yin Yang. These are summed up into two paths that you can take:
Ascetic- suppression of natural, control or want to be controlled, filter everything.
or
Ecstatic- Open up, learn to cooperate with nature, constructing, expanding.

Right at the very beginning the creators of this movie are showing who their allegiances are with, but also are showing it is a story of the sacred feminine. The rose is a symbol of Goddess worship and has to do with the Goddess Rosemerth. The red rose is symbolizing the red crown of Lower Egypt. Those that know their history know the Lancastrians took the red rose as their symbol because they were of the Lower Egyptian bloodline. The red crown of Lower Egypt. The Yorkists took the white rose as their symbol for the white crown of Upper Egypt. The English Civil War was called the War of the Roses for this reason. That is all that this opening scene is doing. The western world is Egypt and the Upper and Lower crowns are still fighting each other.

Snow White’s mother dies while she is young. The people love Snow White for her strong and defiant heart. Her father’s name is King Magnus. If I had any doubts about the creators of this movie being in the know, they just vanished. If you have read my His Royal Jesus post, you know this is the real name of the biblical Jesus. He was from the bloodline of Lower Egypt. King Magnus is tricked into a battle where he finds Ravenna. He falls in love with her beauty and makes her is Queen. In the Brothers Grimm stories of the princess’, the wicked step mother and sisters symbolize the sister religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. They are jealous of the princess in the stories because the princess represents Mary or Mary Magellan. Ravenna is symbolizing all three religions. In God(s) I showed you that all three of these religions are secretly worshipping Thoth, the moon-god of Egypt. The Raven is the symbol of the Moon. Her killing Magnus is symbolizing the killing of the true history of the biblical Jesus, real name King Magnus.

Snow White’s father being killed is the chaos needed to begin the wake up process. Her being put in prison is symbolizing the self-made prison of your mind. Can you be alone with your thoughts? Your mind will create problems, you have to overcome. Self love and self forgiveness is the key to going forward. When Snow White escapes she gets on a white horse and makes it to the Dark Forest. Horses usually always represent the goddess and forests are the underworld. The Queen hires Eric the Huntsman to go after Snow White. The Huntsman is the sacred masculine. His wife died and he is lost without her. The masculine is lost without the sacred feminine. That is why this world is so screwed up! Everyone is in the masculine and the sacred feminine is nowhere to be found. What we think of as feminine in the world is a messed up version of what the masculine thinks it should be.  This world is in is all negative aspects of the masculine. We think the masculine is some sports fanatic that makes a ton of money or some idiot that goes and kills animals for fun. This ‘look at me world’ is sickening! How can it be anything else when this world is built on lies and no man is willing or able to stand up to them?

Snow White and the Huntsman make it through the Dark Forest by working together. As they are exiting the forest they encounter a giant Troll. Trolls are things in your subconscious that need to be dealt with(see Troll). The Huntsman tells Snow White to run and he tries to fight the Troll off. He gets his ass kicked. Snow White steps in and calms the Troll. The Troll seems to give up and walks off. The Huntsman tells Snow White “ I thought I told you to run”. Snow White replies “If I did you would be dead”. This is symbolizing that you have to deal with your Trolls. Anything in your past that makes you feel bad or something you haven’t forgiven yourself for. Again, self-love and self forgiveness is the key. Don’t feed the Trolls. Get rid of the Trolls.

Snow White and the Huntsman make their way to a village of all women who have disfigured themselves, so the Queen will find them useless. The Queen needing the beauty of young women is symbolizing that these patriarch religions need women to keep the lie going. In the past they burned women for not converting, today they shame them. This village is symbolizing the women that have ‘woken up’. Patriarch religions can’t claim their minds, so they have no use for them. Right on cue, the Queens thugs attack.

Snow White and the Huntsman escape and they meet a group of 8 dwarfs. I found this very witty. As I said, the original Snow White is an astronomical tale. The seven dwarfs were the seven known planets following the moon in the sky. The ancients knew about the planets. We did not discover them, we rediscovered them. Once we rediscovered Pluto there were 8 planets following the moon. The extra dwarf sacrifices himself to save Snow White. This is symbolizing Pluto losing it’s planet status. I know I’m right on this because the dwarf’s name was Gus. Right after science dropped Pluto as a planet, a show called Psych came out with a character named Gus who would say to people “Have you heard about Pluto? That’s messed up right”. This was a slight slam on science dropping Pluto as a Planet.

Snow White sees some faeries and she follows them. They eventually lead her to Cernunnos. Cernunnos represents untamed nature. He is the male protector or the sacred masculine of the Goddess. He bows to Snow White(the sacred feminine) showing what I have been saying all along. The sacred feminine is the key! She is the Alpha and Omega! In come the Queen’s thugs again and they shoot Cernunnos causing him to disappear. This is showing that the patriarch religions have no respect for nature or the Goddess for that matter. At this time William, Snow White’s friend from childhood, reveals himself and helps defeat the Queen’s thugs. Now Snow White has two men that represent the sacred masculine. Queen Ravenna disguises herself as William and gives Snow White a poison apple. She takes a bite and falls into a deep sleep making everyone think she is dead. Apples always represent knowledge and a poisoned apples represent false knowledge. That is just what religion gives you, false knowledge. It has put the masses and the sacred feminine to sleep for more than 2,000 years.

William thinking she was dead kisses her then they take her to Duke Hammond’s castle. Here the Huntsman regrets not saving her and kisses her too. I think they did this because of the dual symbolism of astronomy and consciousness. The astronomy is the sun and moon in an eclipse and the consciousness is the working together of the sacred masculine with the sacred feminine. She wakes up, representing her ‘awakening’ or rebirth. She rally’s the Dukes army and they set out to attack Queen Ravenna’s castle. They infiltrate the castle and Snow White confronts Ravenna. Through out the story they keep saying that Snow White is the only one that can kill Queen Ravenna. This is the same as the Lord of the Rings with the Witch-king of Angmar. No man could kill him, but a woman(sacred feminine) could(see The Rings). These are symbolizing it takes the sacred feminine to kill patriarch religions. Snow White gets over powered by Ravenna.  Ravenna is about to kill her and take her heart, but Snow White uses a move the Huntsman taught her to kill Ravenna. With Ravenna defeated, the kingdom returns to peace and harmony as Snow White is crowned Queen. You will find peace and harmony when you have the sacred feminine in your life and this world will find peace and harmony when the unadulterated sacred feminine returns. Just like it was in the Golden Age thousands of years ago.

Oops … Forgot The Baby ~ Amy Brucker

baby-picture-whaemI’ve noticed a women-centric trend in dreamland: babies.

Forgetting you have a baby.

Forgetting to feed the baby.

Unintentionally harming the baby.

Being handed a baby.

Losing the baby.

Leaving the baby behind.

It’s a trend that speaks volumes to the number one problem I’ve noticed most women share: self-care.

The lack of self-care with women is so bad we’d call it a pandemic if it were a physical illness instead of a mental one.

But how exactly is “self-care” part of a “baby dream”, and how might these dreams help you navigate this tricky terrain if you’re one of the many women having this experience?

Good questions!

What is Your Dream Baby?

If you shared a baby dream with me, I’d immediately consider how the baby might be an aspect of your purpose, or something you want to do or be or experience in life.

You might say the dream out loud, substituting “baby” with “purpose” or “project” or “vision”, and see if the concept fits. For instance, imagine this is the original dream:

I dreamed I’m walking down my hallway when I hear a baby crying. I run into the room and realize I totally forgot I have a baby and it’s starving, near death. I feel horrible, but am grateful the baby didn’t die and I can now take care of it. It’s not too late.

It’s a simple dream packed with meaning, and you can re-read it like this to explore the message:

I dreamed I’m walking down my hallway when I hear my purpose crying. I run into the room and realize I totally forgot I have a purpose and it’s starving, near death. I feel horrible, but am grateful the purpose didn’t die and I can now take care of it. It’s not too late.

The baby might also represent any of the following aspects of life that feel new and vulnerable, or were left in their beginning stage:

  • project
  • calling
  • desire/vision
  • self-care
  • health
  • money
  • anything new in life
  • anything left in a new/beginning stage (e.g. an unwritten book)
  • anything that you feel responsible for
  • a new thought/idea/way of being
  • a desire for a real-life baby
  • a vulnerable part of you

In other words, the dream baby could be many things, and determining the meaning may require exploration to see what fits best. (The baby can also represent many things at once.)

Whatever the dream baby represents, it’s worth investigating your relationship to it and what you need to do to create health and wellness in that area.

Finding Next Steps in the Dream

Your dreams give you clues about the current emotional, physical, and mental state that may be unconscious to your waking mind, but may be impacting your wellbeing. In other words, you may not realize you have a problem, yet it’s a problem you need to solve in order to move toward health and wholeness.

Women are super adaptable beings who are biologically programmed to succeed, which means we can fool ourselves into thinking we’re okay, even when we know something’s amiss. This means we can go through life thinking we’re fine when instead we’re silently suffering and oblivious.

But our dreams don’t lie to us. They reveal the truth about our thoughts, feelings, fears, and gifts. Knowing how to read dreams can help you bring what’s not working into alignment in a way that feels joyful.

So what can you look for in a dream to help you find those best, next steps? Look for the “before” and “after.” Most dreams have two parts, the “before” that illuminates the problem, and the “after” that offers a solution.

Using our dream example from above, the “before” is as follows:

I’m walking down my hallway when I hear a baby (e.g. purpose) crying.

The “before” explains the waking life situation that is problematic. A young, vulnerable part of my life is trying to get my attention and it’s essential that I pay attention.

The dream then reveals the simple next steps:

I run into the room and realize I forgot I have a baby (e.g. purpose) and it’s starving, near death. I feel horrible, but am relieved the baby (e.g. purpose) didn’t die and I can now take care of it. It’s not too late.

The before is simply saying, “Hey, you have a purpose that’s being ignored. The more you ignore it the louder (more problematic) it’s going to get.

The after is saying, “Go back to your initial idea or the thing that’s in an infancy stage and feed it. Notice you feel horrible. This is a sign the baby (e.g. purpose) is important to you and that you don’t really want to neglect it. Be grateful the baby (e.g. purpose) is still alive and that you are now able to feed it and bring it to life.”

Taking it a step further, “feed it” might be “write in your book” or “tend to your relationship.”

It’s equally important that you transition out of “feeling horrible” into “grateful” so you don’t stay mired in disempowerment and regret, which is something many women do once they realize they’ve wasted a lot of time by putting the purpose, project or thing on hold.

The dream is saying, “It’s not too late” There is hope.

Create Your Own Dream Medicine Remedy

If you’re having dreams about forgetting to feed or care for a baby, it might be useful to take flower essences geared toward nurturing your creativity and purpose. Here’s what I recommend:

Pomegranate helps balance the creative female energies, both inner and outer.

Quince helps establish balance with the soul’s need to express both power and love; to integrate nurturing feelings within a role which also requires authority and responsibility.

I also recommend working with someone who can help you integrate your purpose, or whatever the baby represents, into your life.

Baby dreams encourage the dreamer to take action, to remember what you’re here for, and to trust the process.

That’s good advice to follow.

Sweet dreams,

Amy
