Shadow of the Shaman: 5 Reasons Being a Shaman Sucks (is Awesome) Gary ‘Z’ McGee, Staff WriterWaking Times “It is easy to go down into Hell; night and day, the gates of dark Death stand wide; but to climb back again, to retrace one’s steps to the upper air — there’s the rub, the task.” –Virgil Ghost talker? Vision poet? Soothsayer? Although it’s a deeply powerful form of spirituality, it should not be taken lightly; or if it is taken lightly, it should be taken with a wholesome helping of “humble pie” along with a healthy side of “a humor of the most high.” 1.) “What is it we are questing for? Shamanism grabs your Destiny by the throat and does not let go. Their shunning is a double edged sword: you will be dubbed crazy, insane, and eccentric on the one side, and arrogant, conceited, and even selfish on the other side. 2.) “If you love and have desires, let these be your desires: To know the pain of too much tenderness; to be wounded by your own understanding of love; and to bleed willingly and joyfully.” 3.) 4.) The death of the ego is no easy task.
17 Out-of-Place Artifacts Said to Suggest High-Tech Prehistoric Civilizations Existed By Tara MacIsaac , Epoch Times According to the conventional view of history, humans have only walked the Earth in our present form for some 200,000 years. Advanced civilizations appeared several thousand years ago, but much of the mechanical ingenuity we know in modern times began to develop only around the Industrial Revolution a couple hundred years ago. Oopart (out-of-place artifact) is a term applied to dozens of prehistoric objects found in various places around the world that seem to show a level of technological advancement incongruous with the times in which they were made. Many scientists attempt to explain them using natural phenomena. We will look at a variety of ooparts here ranging in purported origin from millions of years ago to merely hundreds of years ago, but all said to show advancement well ahead of their time. 17. 2,000-Year-Old Batteries?

Hermeticism Philosophy based on the teachings of Hermes Trismegistus Hermeticism, or Hermetism, is a philosophical system that is primarily based on the purported teachings of Hermes Trismegistus (a legendary Hellenistic combination of the Greek god Hermes and the Egyptian god Thoth). These teachings are contained in the various writings attributed to Hermes (the Hermetica), which were produced over a period spanning many centuries (c. 300 BCE – 1200 CE), and may be very different in content and scope. In 1964, Frances A. Yates advanced the thesis that Renaissance Hermeticism, or what she called "the Hermetic tradition", had been a crucial factor in the development of modern science. While Yates's thesis has since been largely rejected, the important role played by the 'Hermetic' science of alchemy in the thought of such figures as Jan Baptist van Helmont (1580–1644), Robert Boyle (1627–1691) or Isaac Newton (1642–1727) has been amply demonstrated.

Oldest Human DNA Reveals Mysterious Branch of Humanity The oldest known human DNA found yet reveals human evolution was even more confusing than thought, researchers say. The DNA, which dates back some 400,000 years, may belong to an unknown human ancestor, say scientists. These new findings could shed light on a mysterious extinct branch of humanity known as Denisovans, who were close relatives of Neanderthals, scientists added. Although modern humans are the only surviving human lineage, others once strode the Earth. Genetic analysis suggests the ancestors of modern humans interbred with both these extinct lineages.

A Colossal Dilemma Within Science & Religion Christina Sarich, In5D GuestWaking Times “The Destiny of Man is to unite, not to divide. If you keep on dividing you end up as a collection of monkeys throwing nuts at each other out of separate trees.” ~ T.H. White Let me assure you – I do believe in God. I believe in the Divine, with a big ‘D.’ Religion is nothing more than a human construct to try to explain the unexplainable. Our religions institutions are now (and have been) used by the crumbling powers-that-be to divide us. Then – there’s science. “Questioning is the most important aspect of science, and that is a direct threat to authority, and ironically scientists and the science institutions have become authorities and churches. This ‘scientific’ paradigm is not meant to heal humanity, it is meant to keep it sick. “Every year, nearly $100 billion is invested in biomedical research in the US, all of it aimed at teasing apart the invisible bits of the body. Humanity’s True History Our divinity is our biggest secret. Dr. Dr.
Did An Ancient Mega-tsunami Crash Into Madagascar? Sometime in the last 10,000 years, a gigantic space rock plummeted into the Indian Ocean, creating a mega-tsunami of massive proportions. Colossal waves enveloped the coast of Africa and left what we see today as chevrons, or wedge-shaped sediment deposits, in Madagascar. But did this actually happen? One might think that geological breadcrumbs are easy to spot, but it’s quite the contrary: As ancient mega-tsunamis wash away, researchers are left looking for signs that they were ever there, or to the contrary, that they were never there to begin with. The debate is neatly summed up by geologist Dallas Abbott: "While most researchers have assumed that the sand in the dunes was transported inland by the wind, we instead have proposed that the deposits are from a mega-tsunami event." The carbonate primarily came from marine microfossils, which is why the researchers say their evidence adds weight to the mega-tsunami theory. [H/T: National Geographic]
The Divine Template | Waking The Infinite Residing within you is a divine template. It exists all through you and will reach all the way down into each and every atom of your body. This template exists within everything and is the very thing that causes things to be, to become, to manifest. That might sound like magic to you, and you would be right. This is what is behind why people who awaken often (although not always) go through a stage where they can’t watch commercial television or radio. More later….it is now off to work.

New Evidence Lost Civilizations Really Existed Source: www.wakingtimes.com | Original Post Date: September 12, 2014 – What if everything you’ve been taught about the origins of civilization is wrong? Be it that certain pieces of our history have been intentionally hidden, or that we have yet to discover and realize the true story of our past, new archaeological and geological discoveries are revealing that sophisticated civilizations have likely existed in prehistoric times. Until recently, the archaeological community has spread the view that the beginnings of human civilization started after the last Ice Age, which ended around 9,600 BC. All human ancestors prior to this time were recognized as primitive, uncivilized hunter-gatherers who were incapable of communal organization and architectural design. This is the established chronology being taught in schools and believed by modern society. Until now. “Everything we’ve been taught about the origins of civilization may be wrong. Since 2011, Dr.
Stanford Scientists Observe Man Travel Out of His Body and Into Space – What He Saw Was Remarkable NASA’s Pioneer 10 spacecraft was launched into space in 1972. It was the the very first spacecraft to fly directly through the asteroid belt and make observations of the biggest planet in our solar system, Jupiter. It was also able to obtain closeup images of the planet, something that scientists had never had access to before. (1) Prior to the flyby of Jupiter by Pioneer 10, the CIA and NSA, in conjunction with Stanford University, were involved in what was called “Remote Viewing.” Remote viewing can be defined in multiple ways. A gentlemen by the name of Ingo Swann was able to successfully describe and view a ring around Jupiter, a ring that scientists had no idea existed. The successful viewing of the ring by Ingo came after scientists observed him identify physical objects in hidden envelopes that were placed a few hundred kilometers away. It’s remarkable to think about these extended human capacities, and what we are capable of. The Above Information Was Documented. Sources:
The Astonishing Age of a Neanderthal Cave Construction Site In February 1990, thanks to a 15-year-old boy named Bruno Kowalsczewski, footsteps echoed through the chambers of Bruniquel Cave for the first time in tens of thousands of years. The cave sits in France’s scenic Aveyron Valley, but its entrance had long been sealed by an ancient rockslide. Kowalsczewski’s father had detected faint wisps of air emerging from the scree, and the boy spent three years clearing away the rubble. Some 336 meters into the cave, the caver stumbled across something extraordinary—a vast chamber where several stalagmites had been deliberately broken. These weren’t natural formations, and they weren’t the work of bears. Recognizing the site’s value, the caver brought in archaeologist Francois Rouzaud. The discovery suggested that Neanderthals were more sophisticated than anyone had given them credit for. Rouzaud would never know. A life-long caver, Verheyden works at the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences, where she specializes in stalagmites. Their date?
The Kybalion 16,700-Year-Old Tools Found in Texas Change Known History of North America Archaeologists in Texas have found a set of 16,700-year-old tools which are among the oldest discovered in the West. Until now, it was believed that the culture that represented the continent’s first inhabitants was the Clovis culture. However, the discovery of the ancient tools now challenges that theory, providing evidence that human occupation precedes the arrival of the Clovis people by thousands of years. According to the Western Digs , archeologists discovered the tools about half an hour north of Austin in Texas, at the site called Gault. Excavations being carried out at the Gault site, Texas. The discovery changes everything people have been taught about the history of North America – that is, that the Clovis culture represented the first inhabitants of the continent. “The most important takeaway is that people were in the New World much earlier than we used to believe. The Gault site was identified in the 1920s.
Hermetic Qabalah Teachings Conception of Divinity A primary concern of Hermetic Qabalah is the nature of divinity, its conception of which is quite markedly different from that presented in monotheistic religions; in particular there is not the strict separation between divinity and humankind which is seen in monotheisms. Hermetic Qabalah holds to the neoplatonic conception that the manifest universe, of which material creation is a part, arose as a series of emanations from the godhead. The Sephiroth in Hermetic Qabalah From Ain Suph Aur crystallises Kether, the first sephirah of the Hermetic Qabalistic tree of life. Each sephirah is considered to be an emanation of the divine energy (often described as 'the divine light') which ever flows from the unmanifest, through Kether into manifestation. This flow of light is indicated by the lightning flash shown on diagrams of the sephirotic tree which passes through each sephirah in turn according to their enumerations. History
