The Nature of Neptune and Neptunian Dreamers

Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain Dreaming –  Neptune is the most elusive, dreamy and full of Illusion impact that we can experience in a lifetime. For a long time I have said “Pluto may rule Hell, but Neptune is Hell” and one would have to be saturated for a long time by the influences of this on their lives to stick with its nightmares to its transformations to its mysticism. Neptune rules self undoing, addictions, mysticism, distortions, illusions, delusions in personal and inter-personal ways.

Neptune rules the very complexity mirror work both in waking life and dream work, and because Pisces is the last water sign, it rules the Collective Mirror more appropriately. Neptune’s impact on my and other people’s lives has shown much sickness and mental sickness, distortions within visions and drug/plant usage (addiction).

When one must deal with the longest cycles of Neptune or Pluto, Uranus is fast…

Second New Moon of Summer, Eclipse and Talisman of Saturn 2018

By Elder Mountain Dreaming

Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Greetings dreamers, artists and moon people, we begin our 2nd New Moon of Summer with a Solar Eclipse, and a six pointed star (pentagram) called the Talisman of Saturn in astrology, on Thursday, 12 July 2018. This is typically the Leo Moon cycle, but since we have periods of time when astrological sun-signs get misaligned (every few years), the new moon is at 20º Cancer instead of Leo. I don’t use astrology as my guide anymore in moon work, I use the moon and where she fits in her seasonal journey as a living guide to help with our practices of healing and awareness.

Our second moons of Summer are ruled by the elements of fire, translating into symbolism of internal drama, dram mirrors, creativity and children or our inner child along side our good intention with some complications. This is our true “Midsummer” because…

First New Moon of Summer

By Elder Mountain Dreaming

Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain –Greetings dreamers, healers, artists and moon people, we now enter our  first of “Three Moons of Summer” which begins June 13, 2018 and then the Summer Solstice, Thursday, June 21st(Northern Hemisphere 3:07 am pdt). Our three moons of Spring have completed with six intentions total and I am sure you did your workings to become more aware of your fears even if you didn’t approach them yet. Even a small amount of what you are personally working on with more understanding helps alleviate some stress. Review your last three intentions and full moon release intentions and review the insights you have at the door of the summer moons.

With the solstice, we meet the second half of the season, the “Season of Fire”. For those unfamiliar with my terminology, I work with the way our ancestral past did under grandmothers leadership (long ago), before we…

Healing Ancestral Trauma with Plant Medicine

In these days of DNA tests one gets through websites to trace your family tree … Is it truly appropriation of traditions or culture if the DNA of your ancestors come from Nigeria, Romans that conquered Germany, Britons, Eastern Europe, North Africa, etc. Skin color maybe white, but the ancestors that traveled to colder climates were not. Those ancestors often provide guidance to practice their indigenous traditions. Through many of the traditions of my ancestors, I have learned to revere and elevate ancestors that had been ignored for generations. As anthropological research and DNA tests trace our origins back to the area of ancient Egypt … As ancestor reverence once again comes to the forefront and people learn to listen to the messages from their ancestors, it is my hope that terms such as cultural appropriation become obsolete because it’s not appropriation, but a rediscovery of our ancestral roots.

Ancestral Apothecary

By third year Cecemmana student, Kara Wood.

Several years ago I had a lightning bolt message from my ancestors that I needed to live my truth and combine all the things that I care about (plants, ancestors, genetics, herbal medicine) and really live who I am. That is when I found Ancestral Apothecary School and the Cecemmana program.   I am in the third year and what I have learned and experienced surpassed any possible expectations. So much of what I had always been doing, that I didn’t yet recognize, was preparing me for this.

In this life do any of us really escape trauma? It can affect us at any time in our lives from in utero on.  We also experience ancestral trauma, sometimes referred to as transgenerational trauma. This trauma is the one that inhabits each of us in some way.  Each generation before us imprinted information and trauma…

Crystals are Not for Everybody

By Elder Mountain Dreaming

Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain –Although beautiful and very pretty, not everyone should have Crystals around them nor work with them or work on others with them. Crystals are detrimental for 1.  Empaths 2. Dreamers, 3. Emotional Sensitives (emos) and 4. the Soul Body (astral body) and mental astral body traveler types. If you’re sensitive to large crowds and too much energy that these places cause, then crystals are not for you. Crystals tend to be good (or doesn’t bother their energy bodies) for very grounded people, those who are the less emotional or not the dreamer types. If you can go to a rock concert after 30 years old or spend a weekend in Las Vegas and not be completely drained, then you are the type that can probably handle crystals just fine.

For the “sensitive” types of the three listed, I suggest letting go of your crystals…

Want to go Lucid before the next full moon? A new Lucid Ignition community is gathering

By Ryan Hurd

The moon is waning and maybe your own lucid dreaming practice is too.

I can help with that. Well, not so much with the moon, that’s a celestial body apparently beyond my powers of influence.

But if you are looking to go deeper into lucid dreaming, or if you have hit a wall trying to become more self-aware in your dreams, the answer is probably not a new miracle technique or sleep hack. Sorry/not sorry.

Successful lucid dreamers are those who learn how to leverage motivations into strong intentions, and then build what I call the “lucid sanctuary.” This is soulful mindset that doesn’t command the dream, but invites it forth.

Since 2015, I’ve been running seasonal online workshops that provide a supportive community so you can do just that: build your lucid sanctuary, learn how to put to use the most scientifically-validated techniques, and construct a strategy that not only invites lucid dreams but also impactful and transformative dreams.

It’s easy, it’s holistic, and most importantly, it really works. Once you learn this strategy, it grows with you, and you’ll be able to dip back in whenever you are ready for more.

Second New Moon of Spring

by Elder Mountain Dreaming

Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Greetings artists, dreamers and lunar muses, I hope that your last moon cycle was supported, slightly challenging and you recognized at least one awareness or change, in a positive letting go. As we build our emotional foundation for the year, we start in the fullness of the second of three spring moons. Our Second New Moon of Spring starts April 15, 2018. We continue to build our practice of emotional and soul awareness. If you are new to this work-study, the link to the basics is at the end.

Our moon cycle starts us off with Sun, Moon and our crazy uncle Uranus – all conjunct in Aries and this energy means its time for change, change, change. Wherever Uranus shows up, the clock in the hallway starts chiming its eerie sounds for no reason, as the lightning god is sure to come find us…
