No one knows why we sleep. Everyone knows we need it, but no one knows why. Everyone has a theory, but it’s all wrong. We spend a third of our lives sleeping and no one knows why! Well until know. You are about to find out. All the scientific theories are just physical elements of what sleep does for us. Science only cares about the physical world and therefor will never unlock the secrets of the Universe. As I have shown in previous writings, the body mind and spirit are all connected.

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – My sacred archaic orison today…
I give great reverence, great respect and praise to all our ancestral and ancient women artists whose names were never known, or never mentioned by scribes in any sacred texts of earth the last few thousand years.
I light a candle and whisper to the wind to you, to send you the message from my heart, that your glowing love, your passion and connection to nature through the meadows and caves you once lived, still breathe and still holds its beauty. I am grateful to know you and the pure earth through your eyes again, where my soul had once lived.
The same creeks, rivers, streams, oceans, mountains and clouds are here, where you sang your honoring songs through your dreaming cultures, then your shaman cultures and much later, your goddess cultures. The culture of clan, tribe, town, village…

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…

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…

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…

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.
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…

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…

Hi and Happy Friday!
Popping in real quick here today to give you guys a quick blend you can do on your own.
It helps encourage a more peaceful and relaxed energy in your room as well as your sleep. It also has the ability to ease up nightmares. This isn’t a go-to blend specifically for nightmares I can do a post on that another time. But you will find it can help.
You will need the following:
- Salt or black salt. Don’t forget to bless it and all that good stuff.
- Dried Lavender – of course….
- Dried Chamomile
- Dried St Johns Wort
- Bay Leaf
Don’t forget to show so love to your dried herbs before you just throw it all together. Add them one by one and grind away and enjoy the aroma.
This blend goes directly onto your mattress.

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.
