My Intentions

Now you have noticed a little shift in the way I'm presenting Mystical Man and Benevolent Magic blogs this year. It is my intention this year to provide you with as much true magic as I am able since I know that many of you may be in a circumstance that would require such support and means to influence benevolently your world. I will attempt to provide as much as I am able during this year so that you can do the greatest good you can achieve.

Know that throughout the year I will not only offer things here but when I have the opportunity continue to offer video on my Explorer Race blog. It may be possible to provide more of that within a month or so.

So this is just a brief notice to let you know that this year will be different and it is my intention to offer as much as I am able for you during this time.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Shamanic African Art, Part 3

Previously I have been discussing the use and misuse of African art shamanic objects. Today I want to comment just a little further.

Some years ago certain objects that were used very lovingly by African shamans to invite the beings from other planets associated with the home with many of the African peoples - the invitation was sent in part using that sacred object and it had in the past benevolent results.

The beings did come, did visit, share knowledge and wisdom and departed. So this was a particularly useful and powerful shamanic object. Unfortunately over time this object was stolen and passed through different hands and right now the people who have it have no idea what it is.

This is a very powerful object and it has had over time unexpected results. Some years ago there was a spike in the amount of extraterrestrial visits to this planet. These beings came because they felt invited. This is because this particular object, while no longer in the hands of the original shaman, had been used once again but the people who used it did not realize what it could do and did not understand that it could only do the one thing.

It was created to invite visitors from afar and regardless of what it was asked to do that is what it could do. And these individuals who had it - they don't have it anymore fortunately but who had it requested that it do this and that according to their personal agendas - and I'm not trying to blame them here. I'm just saying that they knew enough to know that it had energy about it and they attempted to use it for various purposes but since it was entrained to work only as a means of inviting friends from other planets that's exactly what it did.

For a few years there was a great many visitors from other planets, many of whom were completely confused because they did not understand why they were not being received well. So - I am not trying to suggest that all contacts from other planets had to do with the misuse of this object but I am saying that such things are strong and need respect.

So again I want to remind people who have these objects or have touched these objects or have copied them thinking that they were art only that these objects, at least the original, is a shamanic object and can be used for exactly how it was intended to be used created by that shaman and utilized by that shaman in years gone by.

If you feel that an art object you may have - as you might call it, an art object or a sculpture - if you feel that it has a special energy then you must be careful with it. It may be an original shamanic object or it may be something that was near the original. If it was near the original it might have picked up some of the energy especially if it was made from a similar type of wood or other material.

So I'm going to recommend that you be careful what you ask for around that object - not because for your request may come to pass but it might activate that object and whatever that object was intended to do it will amplify it and it may begin to function at least for a time as its originally intended purpose. So if you feel that energy then I recommend that you either approach someone who has knowledge of these things or seek out someone like that or perhaps simply put it in a cabinet as I described in a previous posting in such a way as it can rest and not impact with its energy other people and societies.

Remember always to handle such objects with care - gloves would be useful as I described in Shamanic African Art, Part 2 and know that I again am not blaming here. I'm just suggesting that care be taken with shamanic sacred objects at all times because you may not really know what they can do and you might unintentionally misuse them or you might create a problem without realizing it. So be respectful and if you're not sure create a cabinet as I've described and store them in that cabinet until you can find someone to consult with on these matters.

Shamanic African Art, Part 2

The last time I started speaking about African art shamanic objects.

This time I want to speak about the original objects - meaning that which is ancient and/or comes from times where very specific intentions were meant for the object, often a small statue or figure of a person not always looking exactly like a person but frequently suggesting a person perhaps influenced by something. This has usually been referred to by Anthropologists as a deity but it is not always meant that way.

Many times it is to suggest the feelings that a person has so that when they are caught up in the desired feelings that the object is intended to stimulate that they expand in certain ways not just physically but that the feelings of their body - you understand, you sometimes might call these emotions but I prefer to use the term feelings because in the physical body there are actual physical feelings going on - so the object is intended to represent an extension of feelings and this is why sometimes the objects appear to be other than human - meaning not quite human or more than human.

If you have an object like that whether it is in a museum or a private collection or whether it is simply in use by others - great care must be taken when touching it, when even looking at it and it is profoundly important about looking at it.

I would recommend that the safest way to look at an object like that would be through a compound mirror and this is what I mean. Imagine for a moment having something sitting on a pedestal. Opposite it is a mirror, then opposite at a angle that will allow that reflection to be reflected would be another mirror.

If there is that level of reduction of energy you could look at the object, not stare at it but you could glance then close your eyes and examine what you have seen in the memory of what you've seen in that compounded mirror.

I know that many of you might think that this is excessive caution but remember that these objects were created to have an influence on the physical feelings of people - to operate very much like medicines are intended to operate today. The medicines of today are intended to stimulate the physical body essentially to heal itself or sometimes there are more direct actions by medicines - that's my analogy for this article.

So the next step in your treatment of these objects is - if they are going to be viewed in an art gallery I strongly recommend the compound mirror.

Nowadays all human beings, as I have stated on this blog and my other are becoming much much more sensitive and receptive. Many of you have noticed that in talks even with friends and family and loved ones - yes - that the other person you are talking to is much more sensitive than they used to be.

Sometimes this creates improved communication, other times it creates more misunderstandings and there are times when you are arguing about things that you never argued about in the past. That is because people are intended to be more sensitive. This is what I've been taught and this is what I believe not only on the basis of trusting my teachers but also on the basis of knowing from learning and observing.

Now, I want you to understand something and that is this, such objects are to be treated as influences - meaning that they can and they do have influence all the time. If you look at something that is intended to have an influence - no matter how much its been handled it doesn't lose its impact - then I recommend that certain cautions be taken.

If you are handling the object for any reason try to look at it as little as possible unless you are desiring to have the impact of the objects original intentions upon you.

If you are handling it I recommend that you use gloves but that the gloves not be of a natural material. So not leather, not cotton. In this case I would recommend using gloves that do not transmit energy, that do not in that sense allow for the reception of your sensitivities function.

So I would recommend using some synthetic or even gloves that have some kind of metal foil built into them. Such things exist but even a pair of synthetic fabric gloves would work well. Definitely do not use silk. That is highly able to transmit energies.

And now when the objects are not in use they ought to be kept in a wooden box that does not have any nails in its construction. It is possible to create such a thing. There are craftsmen and women of course around today who can create such things using wooden pegs and so on.

Wood can be insulating as you well know and it is a natural product but this is how to place the objects. Using the pair of gloves and looking at it as little as necessary, place it on a shelf in the wooden cabinet and then simply close the door gently - never slam the door. Loud noises will often stimulate such shamanic objects. Then close the door gently.

Remember - no metal in the box or cabinet itself meaning specifically in that part of the cabinet where the objects sit or stand. Do not lay the objects down - as in prone. Have them, even if they are in containers, in a sitting position or standing up. This is better and does not tend to activate the objects. Sometimes laying down or being prone is part of the activation process.

Alright - now the preparations of the cabinet are as follows. The cabinet is, if at all possible during construction, to have a sandwiched layer between layers of wood of some kind of heavy duty aluminum foil. This will allow the object to retain its own energy within the cabinet and also not broadcast that energy to people who just happen to be passing. This also allows the object to be at ease and relax.

Remember - the object is always intended to have influence so it is essentially working and not unlike a person, since it is a spiritual object having shamanic influence, it also needs to rest. And if you put it in the cabinet like that then let it rest for at least 24 hours. Don't take it out unless it's a matter of emergency - the building is burning down or something like that, that's what I mean by emergency or someone needs to be influenced because of an emergency.

Now - let me go on a little more. The influences of these objects are truly intended to be profound yes and accumulative - meaning that once you've been exposed to the object the energy and its influence builds up in you and does not leave. Truly the patterns in your body of your bodies function will take that energy on, will disperse it to places in your body where it's most benevolent for your function of your body and over time as you take on other influences will become less influential but it doesn't go away.

I'm saying this now because those of you who are involved in new fields of medicine having to do with influences of energies need to be encouraged to pursue these things as well as those of you who have been in the field for a long time, though you may not be in the fields of medicine, need to also be encouraged to know you're on the right track.

I'm recommending that if you wish to experiment with such things that the experiments never be done on human beings because a human being would not get over the influence and other human beings that they might be exposed to who are highly receptive - say babies for instance or young children might pick up those influences if they are exposed to that person who has been exposed mightily to these objects - meaning significantly to these objects - and that influence is present in that adults body for about 12 hours.

So if you're going to work with these objects make it a point to not be around babies or little children - meaning children of 7 years of age or younger - for at least 12 hours after your exposure to them.

That's all I'm going to say about this now but I will have further comments about these matters in the future.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Shamanic African Art, Part 1

Once in the past you would find on this blog a contribution about African Masks with some detail about how to care for them and so on. Once again I have the opportunity to make another presentation about matters akin to that.

A great many people acquire pieces of African Art, as it is called, and of course it has beauty and can easily be called art but that is not something I would claim to be an expert on. I am here to say today comments on the spiritual impact of such art pieces.

If the pieces have been produced as copies of other forms - meaning current or recent artists reproducing a figure for instance then this is what I recommend.

If it is something machine made and mass produced it can be treated with the respect that any art object might be but there is no worry about its impact on your life - but if it has been hand carved by an artisan who is actually looking at the original - not just a picture but the actual object or had ever been in the presence of the original or had even lived with someone associated in any way with the original then some caution needs to be taken.

African art is some of the most influential art spiritually on the planet today and many of these objects classified as art are really shamanic in their nature - intended to have a benevolent impact when used properly but when misused or when used with ignorance can have an unintentional impact.

Given the conditions I have stated above, if you have a piece of this shamanic work then it is attendant upon you - very important - to find out what the original piece was intended to do.

Try not to read only the best guess by historians or anthropologists. These people while being great experts in their fields are not always told the exact purpose for these things because shamanic peoples the world over do not always reveal all that can be known about a objects intent. This is not because there is an intention to fool or to manipulate but rather because the impact of the object is so great and also so subtle as to bring about the most desired outcome or even stimulate characteristics that would be latent in people already.

Some art objects are grossly misunderstood. These would have to do with things that would stimulate sexuality or perhaps would stimulate a long life or a life that would produce many children for example. If these objects are not used carefully - now remember I'm not even talking about the originals yet - if these objects are not used carefully then they can have this effect all the time but frequently in ways that are not desirable in current society.

Many people wonder why there is so much of a pervasive experience in society now of sexuality geared and structured into so many things. While sexuality is a beautiful thing when done with consenting adults and engaged in loving sharing with each other there are many other aspects to sexuality that are not desirable especially when one or more parties is not openly desiring this or is not an adult.

I am not saying that African Art being misused intentionally or otherwise is the cause of this but you can understand the analogy using for example todays medicines. A medicine is given to stimulate certain things that the body can do. The medicine itself doesn't necessarily take direct action but causes an effect within the body, in the case of my analogy here, to stimulate the body to bring about a more benevolent state in someone's body.

This we understand as something technical. We understand it as a scientific matter wherein one thing follows another on a predictable basis. In our times we understand that such matters are based upon hard and proven and reproducible theories, science and results. In other places though and in other times, ancient and even in current times we find other things that can stimulate and even excite in the wrong ways - meaning if you were to use a drug for example and misuse it then things can happen that are not desirable and I think we all know about that.

For your education today I want to offer some suggestions on African art objects - statues, forms and so on that have influences, as I've stated above - the person had seen the original, the person knew the original artist and so on or the artist was a ancestor for instance then this is what to do.

Find out to the best of your ability what the original piece was intended to do. Research it or have it researched as thoroughly as possible and in the most benevolent way. Do not cause harm in your research but find out as best you can.

If you find it has a specific impact, such as - I'm using the idea of being strong and able to produce children as one might find even as a desirable trait today to not just produce many children but to have the strength to raise them and raise them well, that is the sort of art object or shamanicly influenced object that ought to be exposed only under those circumstances when those people themselves, those women in that sense or those men, wish to be influenced by such an energy.

Lets remember that energy is something that not only runs through wires and stimulates machines but is all around and about us and sometimes is sensed by people who don't necessarily consider themselves to be sensitive.

You walk into a room and everybody has a strong feeling about something - you can tell something's up. "What's up", you say - but no one has said anything to you and then you find out what's up. So I also include that when I'm talking about energy - felt influence - that's energy as well.

So if you as adults - a young couple perhaps - want to have the strength, the endurance and the capability to produce a fine strong family of children and to raise them well and to be able to encourage the best of them you might expose yourself to an art-shamanic piece like that and this could have a similar effect as a influencing - not medicine - but an influencing energy not unlike what an herbal might do.

An herbal product is not usually designed to have an instantaneous impact. It's usually designed to have a long term influence which builds up a certain strength or quality in a person over time.

So then you expose yourselves to that object but you do not have it exposed to the world all the time for it might be having that same influence on others that has not so good an impact. Look upon these art-shamanic objects as art-shamanic objects for they are truly influencing all the time. This is not so unusual for any objects created by cultures of people who have within them heart connections to the past along the lines of lineage.

Now in part 2 I'm going to discuss the original artistic objects and what to do about that and some of those suggestions will also in terms of the safety, what to do, how to treat the objects can also be applied to this part 1.

Things You'll Be Seeing This Year

Now there may be a surprise coming for some of you this year. For some of you it will happen around the middle of the year, for others towards the end.

Its been a long time since there's been a lot of sightings, flying saucers as they're called, and I do not believe that you will be seeing many things like that but there will be things seen in the sky - sometimes hovering over the ground - that are not of this planet. They will look like flat beams of light but even though they will be very bright they will not illuminate that which is around them. Remember that, it is most important. Something very bright and a flat rectangle perhaps, that does not illuminate that which is around it.

When you see something like that do not be frightened. This is a form of vehicle. What I would call more - a means of passage by beings who love us and want to help the citizens of our planet come into a more benevolent way of being. I have been guided this way and by my experience so I do believe this.

They may also allow themselves to be seen, some of these beings. If you see them they will most likely be seen as humanoid light bodies. You will not probably, be able to make out eyes or a mouth or features like that but they might also appear as bright light and again they will not, that light, will not illuminate that which is around it.

This has to do simply because the thing that we see, the vehicle or the beings, are in a slightly different world then we are in. This keeps them safe and it keeps us safe. In that way it is like a safety mechanism - good for all.

I don't normally talk about these things here on this site but I'm going to say more about these things these days because if you see this or anything like it and people next to you, around you or near you do not see it - know that you are seeing it. It's not an optical illusion, you're not crazy.

Some people will be able to see these things at times, other people at other times. Even if you are perceptive and you don't see it and someone near you does - well, it is meant for them to see it at that time.

Know that this is happening, it's going to happen much, much more and it will be noticed this year and probably get press. So - I feel obliged to tell you so that those of you who have these experiences feel comforted in knowing.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

More On UFO's

Some years ago a friend or two and I would go out to the California desert to a place we knew about to look at UFO's. I may have mentioned that before but there's one thing I forgot to mention and that's that one of the things that happened regularly was that we would see these lights and they would start moving down from the sky.

We were sitting on a hill overlooking a small road. To our left was a vertical cliff rising considerably above us.

These lights would come down at an angle of about 45 degrees at a high rate of speed but not so fast that we couldn't follow them with our eyes. They were just light, it was no obvious matter but they would come at this high rate of speed right at the cliff.

The first time we saw it we were a little upset because we weren't exactly sure what it was. It would go straight at the cliff and then for all intents and purposes appeared to go straight into the cliff. It would happen with some regularity.

I'm not trying to say what it was, I'm only saying that it was another phenomena of our experience out in the desert.

It's been a great deal of time since I've been there but I do remember these events and I thought I'd share another one here with you today.

Crop Circle Impacts

Many of you have heard of crop circles. I'd like to suggest the best way to view them if you're looking at pictures. Ideally the pictures would be seen from directly overhead encompassing the entire crop circle. When you have the picture in front of you, turn it slowly - ideally to the left.

Just turn it slowly until you feel that this is the best viewing angle for you. Don't be attached to what others say is the top or the bottom - that's not important. Don't be attached to what anyone says about its meaning. Just turn it until it feels exactly right.

Remember it's a symbol and it may feel completely different to different individuals. When it feels completely right this is what I recommend you do. Place your right hand, not your left hand, palm down on the photograph. This way if it does not feel quite right when you touch it you will not take in much of the energy. You understand that this is strictly a photograph but it is a symbol as well.

So, if it feels alright and even comfortable or even good - yes - when you put your right hand down on it then if you choose and only if you choose you can lay the back of your left hand on it - not the palm. That's very important because your left palm is highly receptive but the back of your left hand, while it is more receptive then the palm of your right hand, is not as highly receptive and you can't be certain of the impact of that crop circle photograph.

Now - if it feels very good to you and only if it feels very good, and I don't mean it thinks good - I mean that it feels good in your body - for some of you who might feel the warmth you'll know what I'm talking about, so then if you wish you can hover - meaning hold your left hand over the photograph once you get it turned in the direction that's best for you. Do not touch it with the palm of your left hand but you can come within 3 to 4 inches of it if you wish.

Now you could go through a book that might have 4 or 5, 6 pictures of crop circles or more. Every time you see the picture turn it until it's just right for you. If the pictures are too small and you will wind up touching print or some other aspect of the book, don't do that. Try to get pictures that are big enough so that you will actually be able to touch them with your hand and have your hand touching nothing else. That is the best way, I feel, to assimilate the energy that feels best to you.

Crop circles are nothing more than symbols quickly placed in a field of a crop that will bend to the energy that it is exposed to.

Most crop circles are real. Only the occasional one is a joke portrayed by individuals who are out for a lark or a laugh but these are easily recognizable because those in the crop circle detection field, I don't claim to be one, but those in the field can easily recognize the broken stalks and so on as well as the fact that there's no energy from it.

But if you're around an actual crop circle, even if you don't normally feel energy you will probably feel something and if you are sensitive to energy you may be quite impacted by the energy.

Given that I recommend that you have water with you. If the energy is too much either step outside the crop circle or drink water. In any event I don't recommend remaining inside the crop circle if it is reasonably fresh - meaning within 4 hours for more than 5 minutes tops.

The energy would have an effect. It will certainly effect your dreams, it might effect your life.

It might interest you to know that the real intention of doing these things in crops is so that birds will come along, eat the seeds or carry them off and spread the energy. One often sees birds around crop circles. They are not impacted in any way but they spread the energy even just landing and touching with their feet - off they go to spread the energy but if there are no birds around for some reason then the wind will do that just fine.

I will say more about this phenomena another time. Goodlife.
