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…

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.

Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain –Hello Dreamers, Artists, Healers and Moon Lovers, Happy New Moon. Welcome to nature’s Second New Moon of Winter, starting Jan 16, 2018 @ 6:17 pm pst. We finished our first moon of winter with decorated lights, good food and holiday celebrations. If you had any work or family issues arise last month, just know that is very natural and normal for Capricorn Moons. I hope you found some warmth in whatever your month brought you in regards to your spiritual journey.  For those who are new here, you might wish to read over the instructions first for this supportive work-study lunar work. (see the link at the very bottom).

Now, our second moon of winter as arrived and we have another group of Capricorn planets (again) challenging us. We are settling into and walking our ancient “Midwinter”. In soul, emotional and dreaming work, this is…

Healers & Empaths: How to Protect Yourself In Your Sleep

Healers & Empaths: How To Protect Yourself In Your Sleep / krista-mitchell.com

We are in what is referred to as the dark time of the year, when the sunlight has diminished, the nights are long and cold, and spirits roam more freely as the veils thin.

It’s been like this at this time of year, in this hemisphere, for hundreds of years.

For healers and empaths, it’s a time when spiritual self-care is of increased importance, as we’re more susceptible not just to the energy shifts and increased psychic phenomena, but also because we are more powerfully sensitive to the feelings & energy of the world around us.

Have you noticed that lately?

You may also have noticed that the collective unconscious rests very uneasy. There is so much fear, stress, strife, violence, uncertainty, and devastation happening in the world right now. And even if it’s not in your part of the world, or if you’re not hearing about it, the energy can still affect you. 

It may make you want to shut off, seal yourself away in your own little bubble, and try to tune it out, but if you’re an empath this is almost impossible, and if you’re a healer (or both), your soul is calling you to respond with love and light.

That’s why you’re here, and you’re needed. But in order to be of service and in order to be ok, you need to be able to take care of yourself first.

Energy shielding and clearing is a must, but it’s only part of the self-care you need. As humans we’re connected to each other, nature and animals in far more ways through our energy fields, especially at night when we’re sleeping.

As our consciousness drifts on the dream and astral plane, we can encounter, interact with, and be affected by energies and spirits far removed from our own on the physical plane.

This can result in:

  • restless and/or disturbed sleep and sleep patterns
  • dark dreams
  • the feeling of not being fully rested upon waking
  • feeling seized by panic, anxiety, or deep fear in the middle of the night
  • not being able to switch your mind off from your daily problems or the troubles of the world
  • emotionally or viscerally experiencing the collective fears and feelings of people and places not directly related to you
  • struggling with, feeling trapped or suffocated by dark spirits in your dream state which forces you to wake up

Can you relate to any of this? If so, I have some tips from my own experience that may help you:

  1. Clear the energy of your space on a regular basis. By clearing the energy in your space, you raise it’s frequency which can naturally repel lower and harmful vibes. You can learn how to do that here.
  2. Clear your own energy. If you have dark energy or psychic debris hanging around on or in your aura, that can plague you at night. Here’s an article I wrote on how to clear your aura.
  3. Wear a moonstone necklace when sleeping. Moonstone channels lunar goddess energy that helps to protect us at night and in the dream state. The moon represents light shining through the darkness, and creates an effective energy shield or protective ward for our spirit.
  4. Soul-centered meditation. Taking a few minutes before going to bed to meditate, and center your focus on your soul, helps anchor your mind in your own divinity which can keep your mental energy from wandering at night. I recorded a 2.5 minute meditation that teaches you how to do that, you can download it free here.
  5. Say a prayer or set an intention before sleeping. Perhaps you read a Psalm (I recommend #23 or #91), a prayer from your own faith or lineage, call in Divinity or protective angels, or affirm that you will rest peacefully, fully, and safely throughout the night. When we speak with authority energy moves, and we always have authority over our own spiritual dominion (meaning ourselves and our own energy).
  6. Diffuse calming & protective essential oils at night. Lavender, geranium, rose, citrus + cinnamon + clove, palo santo, or cedar are all good choices.
  7. Use grounding + protective crystal placements. Put a piece of hematite (2-5″ in diameter) under the sheet at your feet to anchor your energy in the space, and place either selenite or celestite (2-5″, any formation) under the top of your pillow to create a high frequency vibration that will either repel or dissolve lower energies upon contact.

Stingray Totem

Elder Mountain Dreaming

Brandi and the Smalleye Stingray on the Northern California coast.

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain –  My half-student Brandi and I went on an adventure out to the ocean in Northern California for a few days and were given the greatest gift. It was the arrival and presence of a Smalleye Stingray. I also had an experience the day before at the beach at night that I will share as part of the wholeness of the story/teaching.

As a dreamer (shaman), I only teach about Totems that I have had long-term relationships with, being taught by them from an in-depth relationship of experiences. Then there are those totems who appear on my path when a “new cycle” begins, and stingray is one who has appeared for my new 13 year cycle.

Wiki says the smalleye stingray is a large species of stingray in the family Dasyatidae, measuring up to…

Aliens are just “Soul-Less” Ancient Human Beings

Elder Mountain Dreaming

1334722571-1179333127
By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Aliens are just “Soul-Less” ancient Human Beings with only a Mental (astral) Body left. This has given them extremely powerful Telepathy (mind control) and live on the dream planes of Earth right near us every single day. Combine this with the Military agenda of the Demon Humans (dark humans living with demonic souls), and you have the real Matrix 

The movie “Children of the Corn” came out in 1984, my son was born in ’83 and my daughter in ’85, and by the time my daughter was two years old (the year of the Harmonic Convergence, the first of four (until 2026); she told me there were aliens in our basement, I had never spoken those words to my kids when they were little. I said ok, let’s go see if we can find them and I carried her down the stairs with…

Animal Spirit and Medicine: Animal Spirits

Good Witches Homestead

Animal Spirits work with us in many capacities and on a variety of levels. As Totems, they reflect aspects of our personalities teaching us to know ourselves better and understand our interrelationships. Power Animals are much the same; they are the dominant Totem and merge in a sacred spiritual manner with our inner spirit. Guides are not always animals but they can be; these creatures guide us through spiritual realms and to our teachers showing the way to enlightenment. Some Animal Spirits act as messengers coming once or twice in a lifetime while others are frequent visitors. All these capacities reflect their abilities to impart a wide variety of messages on many different levels. All Animal Spirits are our teachers in one way or another. They can act as protectors giving us warnings, or defending us in other ways. While they teach us about ourselves and our lives, their highest…

Bobinsana ~ Good Witches Homestead

Source: Bobinsana~ From Help Healing Grief, Heartbreak and Pain to Shamanic Lucid Dreaming

A relative of the mimosa tree, Bobinsana (Calliandra Angustifolia) is a water loving plant that belongs to the Pea family (Leguminosae). It grows around 4-6 meters high and is usually found alongside, rivers, streams, and bodies of water in the Amazon basin. It is found in regions of Ecuador, Colombia, Peru, Brazil and Bolivia. It produces an abundance of gorgeous pink to reddish powder puff-like flowers.

Traditionally bobinsana is taken by tincture in an alcohol made from cane sugar called aguardiente or a strong tea (decoction). All parts of the plant are used for healing. The roots, bark, leaves and flowers.

Bobinsana is a well-known “plant teacher” sometimes used in conjunction with a psychedelic amazonian brew called “Ayahuasca”. While bobinsana alone is not hallucinogenic, it is considered a plant teacher or master plant and is sometimes added to ayahuasca recipes to help the shaman connect to and learn from the plants. The plant is typically taken on a special diet or during these shamanic ceremonies for opening and healing the heart, to enhance empathy, to deepen one’s connection to nature and provide grounding. According to many Ayahuasca curenderos “doctorcita bobinsana” as they say, is a very gentle healing plant spirit increasing clarity, focus, compassion and for addressing heartbreak, grief, and loss.

“According to many Ayahuasca curenderos “doctorcita bobinsana” as they say, is a very gentle healing plant spirit increasing clarity, focus, compassion and for addressing heartbreak, grief, and loss.

Many times in our lives we have experienced forms of heartbreak, sadness, sudden loss, emotional struggles. It’s human nature to experience these feelings. And it’s good to know that you can have support during those troubling times. This plant is just one of many that can hold our hand along the way, while we process our feelings and life experiences. The plant is also becoming very well known for producing profound lucid dreaming experiences, colorful shamanic visionary type dreams in which new insights about one’s life are found and healing can occur.

“profound lucid dreaming experiences, colorful shamanic visionary type dreams in which new insights about one’s life are found and healing can occur.”

Among other uses, the Shipibo Conibo people of the Ucayali area in Peru and other Amazonian indigenous tribes use the sacred plant to treat arthritis, bone pain, rheumatism, uterine cancer, edema, nasal congestion, fevers, colds, inflammation, and to purify the blood. They also bathe in the freshly grated bark to improve dexterity, increase resistance to illnesses and protect against colds and chills.

Now that we see how useful this plant can be. It’s a good thing to share the information and see if it’s the right herb for you, your family or your friends. Whether you or someone you know is experiencing grief, loss, pain or intense sadness, this sacred plant can be a gentle ally during the healing process. AND If you’re interested in having enhanced lucid dreams then this special plant is right up your ally! People can also use this for deepening their shamanic, meditation, dreaming or yogic practices. Which makes this herb one of a kind!

“People can also use this for deepening their shamanic, meditation, dreaming or yogic practices.”

As always I love to share the joy of being a herbalist and since this plant is very useful and quite rare it’s hard to find a good place to get it. So I’ve made a very potent 1:2 liquid extract tincture of ethically wild-harvested bark and leaves made with organic alcohol, organic honey, and Colorado mountain spring water. You can find it here>>> Bobinsana Tincture

Disclaimer~ Bobinsana is traditionally used as a contraceptive in Peru. While there is no research to confirm this possible action, those seeking to get pregnant should avoid this plant. Should not be used during pregnancy or lactation.

Dreaming 102 – Elder Mountain Dreaming

Middle World: As the illustration below shows, when you are experiencing in your dreams or the in-between (states of waking and dreaming) of the “pulling or sucking upward” experiences. This means that your astral body (soul) is being sucked up by a outside source (ifo ships). Fight and resist this as much as possible and wake yourself up to pull yourself out. Sucking up which is an outside influence.

Under World: As the illustration below shows, when you are experiencing in your dream state or in-between (waking and dreaming)  the falling downwards is a natural state and not to be frightened. This is when one must begin to deal with the karmic astral body in the underworld. One should “never” work with their karmic astral body shadow and the various consequences of such interaction, it is mandatory to keep healing boundaries “outside of the underworld.” If the “falling downward” begins to happen its time to work with grounded disciplines and sobriety. This is the time the realm opens to heal personal issues at greater levels than normal and begin to work with a shaman of experience.

As a dreamer (shaman) I counsel and guide with experienced wisdom, for those wanting to ground and stabilize this activity of one’s soul body. I work with the different levels,  practices and grounding disciplines of  the processes all levels of the soul, paranormal experiences, out of bodies, multiple levels of dreams, dreaming and more advanced dreaming.
