The Kinesis Generation (Uranus/Neptune conjunction) who were born between 1988-1998 world wide, have some unique chemistry. Kinesis (biology), is a movement or activity of a cell or organism in response to stimulus. Telekenisis, Hydrokenisis, Aerokenisis, a movement of the physical, the wind and water through a persons biology/energy systems.
If you were born during these years, especially the peak of 1992-1993, start your practices now or tell your kids or grandchildren to start their practices now to get good at them, it will come in handy in their future.
This doesn’t mean they are Avatars (yet) it means they have only the possibility to heal their soul’s karma to attain all gifts back this lifetime through very intense hard work everyday for at least two decades. The mystery is never free, she always demands a price.
On Friday, February 3rd, 2012 Neptune moved into Pisces and will be in its own sign until the beginning of 2026 and will close the door it had opened 2,200 years before in the great circle, which started around 220 bce. What does the weaving of the “Order of the Sphinx”, a bunch of “Balkan Grandmothers,” the planet “Neptune” and a “Hawk” speak folk and myth legends weaves together? We dreamers, empaths and artists must understand the outside influences pressuring down on our emotional body and our sensitive nature in order to understand our path with clarity… Well, let me put forth, the soul’s language together for you…
All 3 outer planets have 3 phases, based on 10 degrees each, we have now completed the first phase and entering the second 10 degrees which will intensify. For those who have planets in Pisces or Virgo, you will be experiencing more than others. For those born with Uranus/Pluto conjunction (b. 1965-1969) you are coming of age with Neptune approaching its opposition, and dissolving the struggles that you have had as a world wide group.
Neptune has 3 main symbols, the first is the soul and it’s soul languages, emphasizing the living energy of our soul’s spiritual and evolutionary life; our dreaming life; our karmic life and the “influences” of the “mirror” at three levels. The second main symbolism is the symbolism of self-bondage, self-sabotage, in which the military and wars are its expression. Remember, we are speaking of the soul here, the Military is a more Virgo earthy reality,0 in terms of Chiron (not Venus) and holds the opposing balance. Where we are spiritually wounded is where we are the greatest healer (once we heal our wounding and past life woundedness). The third symbol which comes from the balance of the first two, is the great dreaming, dreams, dreamer and dreamtime as the soul’s freedom.
It is the dream itself in the family of planets including mother earth’s dreaming cycles, just like our dreams are influenced by monthly moon cycles, larger yearly cycles of nature and so forth. Great dreaming cultures have risen and fallen in the dawning and dusking of Neptune. Today, this energy begins in the great circle to rise again, as there is nothing to stop it because it is nature, the untamed nature that does not have to do with the physical plane, but our energetic plane here in which we all live with everyday. It has been dormant for now or controlled, that is about to shift.
Dreamer’s and their souls have been dead for a long, long time on earth because of our past (life) behaviors during “unconscious cycles” and now they have all accumulated, overfilled without enough work to purify. With the help of the energy of Neptune’s influences, which had begun the processes to wake up, as it closes the larger gates we must all atone, as they say. This atonement started when Neptune first went into Aquarius (Jan. 28, 1998 to Aug. 22, 1998) and then went direct until it entered Pisces in 2012. This ten years of prep, was a ‘flexing of dream energy’.
During that time from 1998 until around 2010, dreamers began awakening, heralding the end of the “Age of Pisces” and the doorways open into the “Age of Aquarius” by both constellation aspects of charting them through astrology/ astronomy and the soul aspects of rising of ancient healing including the rising of the dreamers. After 2010, younger people began to awaken around then, with lucidity and then astral travel began to share on the web has already been happening since the first Harmonic Convergence since 1987 for those of us whose dream gates opened then. The military had already begun to use the tools of dreaming to pre-plan their attacks on the dreaming fields when we sleep. I woke up to this in the late 80s and it got very strong in the 90s, working with the healing path of freedom of my soul to unbind my own past life karma. Its taken 30 years of daily work to accomplish this.
We are all aware of Neptune’s distant stories of our historical past, with the energy that allowed an opening at its beginning cycle of the Age of Pisces which started with Buddha and Christ’s enlightenment, the only two prophets of the five (Christian, Buddhism, Muslim, Hindu, Judaism), to reach enlightenment. This was when Neptune’s gate first opened 2,200 years ago around 220 bce to assist this ability and Buddha was teaching in Nepal around this time.
War was also entering the new age of Pisces and should have died at the end of the age of Ares, but it didn’t and it should have. Basically everything today is 2,000 extra years of the fullness of Military power on earth, started its very beginning seeds in the Age of Aries, the Dogs (Sirius) of War (2000 bce – 220 bce). Since the Military should have been shut down, in the first 0 point of the Age of Pisces around 220 bce, it wasn’t. It has grown to become the three monsters (devils) of God: Military, Science and Religion. There is not one human alive today who has not killed as a soldier in their past lives over the last 4,000 years, many turned away, myself included around 41 ce and we have all accrued the worst possible karma of the soul.
As we enter now the next circle on the wheel, the ending of the Age of Pisces and at the “0 point” we step into the Age of Aquarius (the great rebellious one for freedom and freedom of the soul), its going to get very deep on earth and this time, the Soul, not the military will win because Pisces rules the soul and it’s bondage. Aquarius rules the mind and its total freedom and for those who discipline the mind from the wisdom of the Buddha two thousand years ago, your soul’s freedom is next to be set free.
The dreamers emotions, the dreaming, our souls expansion, animism souls and nature’s soul consciousness is hit as a direct influence. This energy on a global level is also the great one who “dissolves” what seems to be truth, but is not. It dissolves matter to energy of the soul and dust to the mind, it rules the emotional systems such as the paranormal, the intuitive arts, the holistic healing energetics, even Buddhism’s manifestations of the divine within their teachings, all the way down to an over abundance amount emotion. Neptune’s smaller cycles within that big 2,200 year one is…
“… the last time that Neptune was in Pisces was within a few years after the planet of Neptune was discovered. Neptune moved into Pisces in 1849 and remained until 1862. This created a dramatic upswing in the spiritual awareness that gave birth to many new concepts at this time that continued to evolve. As it was reported that a surge of spiritualism began “… and by 1853, the Spiritualist movement had spread to San Francisco and eventually to London, and by 1860 there were Spiritualist churches around the world …”
The Sphinx is a short story with a very long history, he was built at the beginning of the Age of Ares, the War Dog. He was the first monument built on earth to shut down the dreamers, the rest of the pyramids around the earth succeeded and won. The Greeks who did not know him, called him the “Sphinx” which means the “Strangler” in Greek. But he is in truth “Her-Em-Akhet”… The Rising Sun, in other words, the rising of the great Military Patriarch where men becomes god. This is the system at its fullness now and its nearing its end.
“Heru” is the name Horus is Greek. In Ancient Egypt the Sphinx was known as “Heru” (Hor or Har), which is translated as “The Distant One” or “The one on High” (from the preposition “hr” meaning “upon” or “above.” Early Dynastic Period and the Old Kingdom was from 3100–2181 bce and set the tone for the coming of the setting of the moon and the rising of the sun (patriarch.)
Heru-ur; Horus the Elder. Heru-ur (Har-wer, Haroeris, Horus the Elder) was one of the oldest gods of Ancient Egypt. He was a sky god, whose face was visualized as the face of the sun. In the building of the patriarch, it was Horus who was built the first temple in Egypt, called the Sphinx and that is what the Order of the Sphinx is. The writings of Thoth so eloquently stated this in the “Halls of Amenti” which means:
You must travel to the greatest depths to retrieve the past life souls fragmented that had broken off of your soul, where you have both stole and destroyed in the eras of the building of the great patriarch itself in the age of Ares and Pisces.
Its pretty simple to understand, the time has come due for the debt to be paid. It all started in the era of the first Kingdom of Egypt, which is the oldest, and like all crisis healing, its time of opening is always perfect. And we heal, one day at a time from then forth.
Balkan & Slavic Mysticism
Shoymanas, known as The Queen of Airs are mythological beings very similar and maybe the same as the Rusallias (related to the Rusalka and downsized nymphs were were once Goddesses and once women.) But you know how the myths are, they are collective and descriptive whether you can alchemize them down to the root core before the corruption of the power of the kingdoms of earth of our shamanizing reality that was once our great prehistory.
In Romania they are called “Sfinte Soimane” and are connected with the Huntress, Goddess of the Moon (Diana) which is basically the prehistory shamanic She-Bear Cultures of the Grandmothers before that was also corrupted. It’s possible that their name is connected with the Hungarian word “sholyon” and the Romanian word “soim”. In both languages it means “Hawk”.
It’s said that Shoymanas are connected with heaven, white clouds and rain. Shoymanas are part of the legends of woman’s shamanic origins and these women are called Shoymanuasa. The difference between trance induced by the Rusallias and trance induced by Shoymanas is that there is no ritual for awaking from the trance. The symptoms that some women display who fall into natural trance, are physical disturbance and a feeling of sickness. Cleanliness is most important for Shoymanas, because Shoymanas could not bare anything but purity of mind, body and soul.
A women who feels that she may fall into trance, makes the bed, performs a ritual bath, and dresses herself in clean white clothing. Before the trance the woman sings a nice and melancholic song. The most frequent one is a moon song dedicated to the Goddess Yana – local version of the Goddess Diana. Trance begins with pain in legs, arms, chest, stomach, and with the breaking and lowering of the temperature. During the trance, women travel through talk with supernatural beings of the pure shamanic realms, not aliens, not ascended masters nor any of the pagan god or religious god humans realms, but mother earth or natures realms.
Women who fall into trance are great sorceresses (Balkan and some Slavic, call their shaman’s sorceresses), but their knowledge and skills are learned during trance and not from other sorceresses. Among their ritual equipment are various grains, mirrors. Shoymanas present to Shoymanuasa, pebble stones decorated with strange ornaments. Shoymanuasa believe that these ornaments are prints of the Goddess and “sainte” rings. These pebble stones are very powerful amulets and tools which Shoymanuasas use to come into contact with non-human intelligence.
Shoymanuasas use these stones for prophecy and for some forms of exorcism. For coming into contact with the realms, Shoymanuasas use bouquets of flowers with a dedicated candle in the center. Herbs connected with Shoymanuasas are: Roman Camomile (Anthemis nobilis), Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), Geranium (Geranium macrorrhisum), and Dwarf Elder (Sambucus ebulas). It is said that Shoymanuasas often, during trance, materialize things, unexplained. These things, the Shoymanuasas use later, most frequently for healing.
People testify that in one of our villages called Zagubica , there is a Shoymanuasa who can materialize butterflies from her hands. Although Shoymanuasas are so powerful in the material world, they are powerless before the Shoymanas. Shoymanas can punish Shoymanuasas even for the smallest mistake, like: unperformed task, betraying the secrets of the rituals, and telling the fortune to the people who are unworthy or those who are unknown to have a lot of past life karma. Punishments are often very cruel. People have said that they have seen Shoymanuasas hanged on trees. Every hair on their heads were threaded into the bark of the tree.
People said that they had seen Shoymanuasas floating on the surface of the water and screaming. Also, they are tormented in the following way: they were unable to move as heavy, invisible rocks were placed on their legs. One of the mild punishments is the unannounced and hasty awakening from sleep, followed by the command that the Shoymanuasa must repeat the magical formula “Intronsura Mare” nine times. This formula has 250 verses. After this the Shoymanuasa falls into am unconscious sleep.“One month before Pentecost (which is the seventh Sunday after Easter), women able to fall into a trance feel some kind of excitement or even fear. Frequently, women begin to be very disturbed after they dye eggs, (on the first Thursday before Pentecost). Before some woman fall into trance she begins to look impassive and stunned and to talk ruptured and disconnected. Sometimes she begins a furious dance and howling. Then she passes into a trance. While these women are in trance they sometimes begin to speak and frequently these women speak prophecy. It’s believed that Russalias speak through them.The entire ritual from the beginning till the end of the trance state is accompanied by music and dance. These are the most important parts of the ritual. In fact, for women is enough to hear sacred Rusallia’s melody to fall in trance.” As the ecstatic dancing reached fever pitch, the Rusalje would commence singing a sacred song, the words of which belong to a magical language forgotten by time.
We have been misguided in the age of spiritualism in many ways, its just more “information” of the lineages of the philosopher’s stone. If you are truly a genuine “soul” seek the simple path of health, inner peace, understanding, unity, and the most difficult of all, the bitch truth which humans and humanity hates because it sounds like the high pitch of an ancient dragon.
Just keep it simple and grounded magic and mysticism, don’t believe everything you hear with fortune telling, sorcery and prophecy or anything far from our dreamer’s ability to image our path (imagination) of our gifts of sacred “creativity” – the inner creative connected to the source of the divine creative: Nature has no agendas.
“Do not invite nor let anything such as calling in spirit or spells or things that allow entrance to your home or personal space in this way. Anything that is a soul wanderer or human out of body has the ability to posses your body, soul or mind. So be smart, keep grounded and do not be fooled by new age spiritualism, if its free or a free vision, its not worth it to sell your soul and that includes shamanic plant/drugs. Nothing is free in mysticism and magic or spirituality, there is always a price that one must pay.”
The media and shadow people never glorify their human side or the strength of the good, they glorify their own deceitful and shadow nature.Re-learn the soul’s language who listens to nature as a teacher, as we shamans do, it always speaks the truth and shows us, but only if we show we are worth of her messengers.

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Various folk shamanic tradition practices are called Folk Healing, like the Grandmothers in this video (in other traditions its called medicine woman). The Slavs, Balkans and North regions like the Karelians pretty much have the same basic rituals for healing. The feet are important because they are both where the greatest amount of our detoxing of sickness releases and our root on the earth and grounds our body to the earth. The folk singing (chanting, spells its called in some traditions) are the direction in which the healing “intent” of the energy is given as a direction.
Song, movement, specific parts of the body, water and fire rituals, all work together as the root foundation, be that medicine chanted or spoken into sacred clothing through embroidery, or the folk healer (who whisperers) a directional energy, or our relationship to the spirit (benevolent energies) of earth to work with the healer (in shamanic way), which is closest to our body and soul of the sick.
The Karelians are a nation that belongs to Baltic-Finnic ethnic group that are currently living in Finland and Russia. In Russia Karelians mostly settle in the Republic of Karelia and in other north-western parts of the Russian Federation. There are also significant Karelian enclaves in the Tver and Novgorod regions of Russia, as some Karelians migrated after 1656 because of war.
In Finland they traditionally settle in the regions of Savonia and Northern and Southern Karelia. The historic homeland of the Karelians has been the Karelian Isthmus, Ladoga Karelia, Olonets Karelia in Russia and the provinces of Northern and Southern Karelia and Savonia in Finland. Many became refuges from German Occupation (of ww2) and their numbers are very small today.

Lunar Monthly Musings by Phoenix the Elder – We officially enter the 3rd New Moon of Winter (Aquarius) on January 27th, 2017 around 4:00 pm PST with a Lunar Eclipse on the Leo full moon in two weeks. Greetings artists, people of dreams and visions, healers, seers and empaths… we have completed our second moon cycle of Winter (Capricorn), which lasted till the very last moment! It hung onto its cycle with a fever – but on Jan 25th the energy shifted mid-afternoon and the water spilled releasing the Cancer full moon’s hold. It seems all Cancer and Capricorn people had a rough go of it and as they find their composure again, we start anew.
The electricity charge of this moon cycle will be much different than the last four weeks of accumulation. But we still have some strong ties to the Capricorn energy, making our goals and intention to focus more on freeing our self from chaos or things that weigh us down within responsibility. Aquarian and Sagittarian energy are the two most rebellious of earth, even Trump, who is a Gemini with Uranus conjunct his Sun, will show the world how Uranian energy works in living color and world wide. For those not marked at birth with chaos fate, they certainly are overwhelmed by it. For those born with the mark of chaos, its just another day.
I posted the first photo above to show you two main symbols of Uranus (Aquarian energy). The photo on the left is an expression of the 0-15 degrees of Aquarius and the influences of Capricorn: The individual, the rebel, the true energy of chaos within the family, corporations, government or business. The photo on the right, 15-30 degrees of Aquarius, influenced by Pisces: The magical, the mystical and visionary or the self-sabotage sides of Aquarius/Uranus.
The New Moon sits at 8 degrees and those who work with the energy of 8 know that its about keeping the flow between light and dark in a constant movement. This moon is going to express our personal world, the more challenging Capricorn issues of Saturn and Uranus’ who dislike anything that says no, with a bit o’chaos.
In the family dynamic, this will be the responsible person verses the chaos person, in community it will be the rebel verses structure, the closed minded verses the visionary and in the collective it will be power (leadership) verses the common sense with positive detachment. In other words, this cycle is the tension that urges great change. So wherever you sit in the world this moon, try to understand the oppositions are the greatest tension of the year – this is because the new year (spring) hasn’t begun the new energy for the year yet, regardless what current Sun cults and their calendars proclaimed around the Winter Solstice that it was the new year. People get in trouble with both energetic reality and cycle flow when they believe the new year started mid-winter. That would be like harvesting your garden at mid-summer instead of late summer and early autumn.
All of you should have experienced some chaos already with the start of this moon cycle, if not, that train will arrive on time at the Leo Full Moon on Friday, Feb 10th with a Lunar Eclipse. The work I teach is to structure soul and emotional chaos into natural flow and nature’s moon cycles which teaches us how E.I. (emotional intelligence energy works and flow), be that within us or nature.
It is not to be avoided, that only makes it worse, nor to fear it (this natural flow) or to deny it. Its about jumping into the “World River that flows down from the Sacred Mountain” and letting it lead, showing you something new about your personal fears, unconscious denials and avoidance of your own deep driving path. People like the World Tree symbolism, a solid spirituality with just a few winds in winter that tousle and untangle as quickly as it happens. Those who are dreamers must live with the World River and the Sacred Mountain Stream and that is why I love my Slavic ancestors and their dreamer’s mysticism. That is what, and where the mysterious magic is located for artists, dreamers, empaths etc.
So be very wise in your intention, your prayers, or if you do magical work, the process itself in chaos magic. Chaos should not be applied until spring comes when mother earth awaken for she does not like to be disturbed in her winter sleep. I wrote an article a few months back, here on this blog, of the Golden Baba, which are the sacred grandmothers of our past. It spoke about the white indigenous Slavic tribes of the north. The 13th century article called them the “sleeping people” and if disturbed, they would wake up angry and also die. They were an old dream (bear) culture, who fell asleep around the Autumn Equinox and did not awaken until Spring. Of course, they died out because the new world order after the 12th century which said there was no more room on earth for the old ones, just like everywhere else on earth.
For those of you who are dreamers, its very important for you to give your self permission to dream in the three moons of winter and sleep more, especially if you have a water sun or moon (Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio). Its necessary for you to maintain your natural emotional health, so try not to be swayed by the fire or earth clan people who don’t need the extra sleep and dreaming, and are on the go all the time. Never compare yourself or your children to non-dreamer types, for they have an older relationship to the earth.
This new moon is also the Chinese New Year which brings fire and purification, of the bossy energy types! I will repeat again: Make sure the south direction of your home, house or property has some metal chimes hanging there until next February, 2018. Some bossy people are natural leaders, but some just need to cry and have a release and accept they are not warrior types, they are just angry and under that anger, is a lot of sadness or depression which requires a lot of tears. Most non-warrior archetypes generally get physically hurt trying to flex that archetype when its not theirs. Know the self.
I ask people in the third moon of winter: “Where is your Rebel? Where is he or she hiding from you that either sabotages you or stands up for you? Remember all fixed “energy” signs (not people), must work together in the symbolic means of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. In a fixed moon, these energies must learn to be friends in order to help us navigate a fixed moon cycle.
Taurus owns practicality, Leo owns Love, Scorpio owns seeing in the Dark and Aquarius see’s all of them plus its own Rebel vs Chaos vs Visionary archetype. Many feel people guilty for their rebel or their chaos and others make damn sure others do feel guilty for it. So in an Aquarian cycle, the natural rebel, be emotionally detached and put on your armor and when Pisces Moon comes next moon, take the fixed armor off, be emotional and throw that armor in the ocean for cleansing.
Shame or Shaming others which is used in an Aquarian cycle always backfires on the shamer or self shamer, so make sure you put that on the back burner, it is not a good attitude for this moon cycle, and its wise to remember that you are truly your own worst enemy and nobody else is. This last moon of winter says: Make a decision and stick to it (fixed sign), come hell or high water. Fixed energy is to push through difficulty, slay the self (ego, vindictiveness or jealousy) and to give yourself so much trouble that you reach a higher level of your personal struggle. So with that, set your new moon “one” intention for the entire cycle and pay attention how life, synchronicity and mirrors respond…
New Moon intentions for an Aquarian 3rd Moon of Winter Cycle:
I am independent
I accept my inner spiritual warrior (if your fearful)
I recognize my truth
I am aware
I practice silencing my thoughts
I nurture myself
I practice projection in a positive and creative way
I am in the present moment (for the worriers / anxiety ones)
I protect my intimacy (those who fear speaking their needs)
I am capable & grounded in confrontation
I recognize my toxic behavior
I express anger with self-control
I express my feelings (if your shy)
I recognize my false expectation
I bring my idealism into action
I am beautiful
I am making appropriate judgement
I am intelligent
I breath to relax
I am observing more (for big talkers)
My needs are real
I trust my process
Last Note: Valentines Day is Feb 14 and the Full Moon in Leo is Feb 10th! So if something arises for you it might be around a release issue of Chaos within Love or Marriage Relationships.
Also in the Chart below the Sun/Moon (new moon), are not really influenced by much here, but everywhere around them is a big fat T-Square (red triangle) which is tension. Since Leo is about relations on the full moon, note the mars, venus, chiron conjunction. If a love spat or love triangle arises, just know that your personal woundedness will arise, so use it to your advantage to learn about where you are wounded in love in order to focus your healing there for the remainder of the month. Be Nice to yourself. Also practice being still, meditate, and focus on your groundedness and let the Chaos fly all around you. Try really hard NOT TO GET INVOLVE IN OTHER PEOPLES CHAOS this moon cycle.
Work on your own chaos, just practice a bit more silence and observe more of what is happening. Whatever you do, keep your mouth shut. That is my BEST wisdom for the month. If you do have to go chaos on a situation, make sure its worth the battle.
Blessings on the New Moon, Chinese New Year and Valentines Day, be safe and focus on your spiritual path to heal and to increase awareness (consciousness) through clarity and observation.
By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – The color blue is associated with dreams, peace and clarity, hence coming from a beautiful clear sky during the day. Both green and blue have an intrinsic effect on the human emotions and causes a calming chemical in the brain to occur. Earth green is soothing, while blue is vibrant yet calm and when you combine both green and blue you get the ultra calm yet vibrant turquoise.
If you see a tree as blue, then make it blue.”– Paul Gauguin
The darker and midnight blue of the night has the same effect on some people as blue does in the day, they feel connected to the earth and a part of nature and value their dreams at night when the sky is dark blue. But unfortunately for those who are sun seekers, daytime lovers, or those who need a lot of sunshine and vitamin D, the night blue has an opposite effect. In modern times, people can sometimes not see that city lifestyles, drinking at night over long periods of time, can greatly upset our natural rhythms of our dreams, our sleep and rem patterns.
The night blue has an effect of sadness or even for some, depression or feelings of being alone, disconnected. This can also for some who need the sunshine, warm colors such orange and red or party a bit too much with alcohol. The energy of the moon in the dark blue sky, effects the flux and chaos of the emotional body of those who do not deal well with too much emotional truth or expressions of emotions. These can all have effects of having the “blues”.
We have the most positive effects for everyone from nature’s blue wild flowers such as blue cornflower, blue iris, blue hyacinth and rocket blue larkspur. The blue spruce and some bluer pine and blue-green foliage also has a powerful calming and peaceful effects on us as human beings. The other auspicious colors are the bluish junipers and bluish palms, blue fescue, rue and hostas foliage. Those who plant blue in their garden tend to have a resting or calm garden along with their wind chimes and statuary that promotes peace.
Teresa Misopoulou’s article, The Color Blue for Repelling Evil, she explains some world traditions of blue and blue-turquoise…
In the Cyclades, next to white color, the prevailing color is blue color. The preference comes from an old belief that the sky-blue shade had the power to keep evil away. The radiation of the color composed an invisible shield, which prevented the approach of bad spirits. Blue church cupolas, windows, doors, walls, staircases and fences, but also blue “belts” (samaria) around the buildings, will provide protection. Blue stones on jewelry, belts will safeguard people and animals and even plants (chaimalia) against evil. Blue “eyes” and blue stones mounted on gold and silver are presented to babies and small children as a talisman for protection.
On the murals of Santorini island (about 1700 bce) bracelets for the wrist, the arm and ankle, and necklaces, are made of precious or semiprecious stones, while the shaved part of the head of young people (male and female) is painted blue. It is amazing, that on traditional Chinese New Year’s cards, one can see the same fashion copied since thousands of years ago.
Small children also have their hair partly shaved in similar arrangement (two or three locks of hair) with the shaved part also painted blue. The artist used the color believing that it would provide protection for his heroes. Also, on special occasions like birthdays, initiation of adolescence, the shaved parts of their heads were smeared with blue paint, their face with white and their lips and cheeks with red (like actors used to do).
The ancient Egyptians were furnished with the turquoise-blue stone (cyanus, lapis lazuli) from the Sinai peninsula since the 4th millennium bce. The precious material is found in abundance in Tourkestan where its name originates. It was also known in Cyprus but according to ancient writers, the best quality was the Scythian blue-turquoise, whose origin was most probably Chinese.
Today, it is mined in North America (California, Arizona) in Central America (Mexico), in Australia, in North Africa and in Siberia. In North America the artifacts of the Indians decorated with the precious blue stone are well known. In Europe the stone is imported mainly from Iran (province of Isfahan), where the best variation of the stone is found. Its shape is opaque and very hard, but porous, and changes color (it turns to green) and “dies”, when it comes in contact with perfumes and cosmetics.
In Athens, at Omonia square, on Dorou street No. 1 and on Stadiou street No. 58, blue friezes surround restored neoclassical buildings. Similar friezes are found in the Ionian islands, in the Cyclades, in the islands of the Argosaronic gulf and in Macedonia, in the villages of Mt. Paghaion.
Above: Village of Assos in Kefalonia, a Greek island in the Ionian Sea
The custom is of worldwide dimension, because even today in provinces of Spain (like in the Mancha of Don Quixote) buildings are decorated with blue bands and designs. Also, houses in Egypt, in the Arab villages of Israel, and entire villages in Morocco, have blue walls. The same color decorates the houses of Mexican Indians and strongly speaks of common universal civilization features.
Traditional American South Blue: Haint Blue is a traditional paint color with a Haunted History – Painting porch ceilings blue is a practice originally adopted in the old South, inspired by several myths and superstitions. The Southern tradition made its way north and has had a revival with new generations of homeowners. There are a few interesting and compelling reasons you might choose to carry on this American ritual and paint your porch ceiling and other parts of your home haint blue or some other shade resembling a clear blue sky.
The color haint blue got its name from the belief that it could ward off evil spirits. The term “haint” was originally a variation of the word “haunt.” Haints are lost souls or the dead’s restless spirits. According to the Southern belief, blue paint applied to the porch ceiling as well as door and window trim can keep haints away.
It’s reported that haint blue paint was first used by African slaves in the South. According to Gullah culture, the color haint blue is representative of water; and evil spirits aren’t able to pass over water. (Gullah culture is from a group of people in the coastal areas of Georgia, South Carolina, and northern Florida who were of African ancestry.)
Haint blue is also believed to have the good purpose of deterring spiders, wasps, and other insects from setting up house on porch ceilings. The myth is that the insects are fooled into thinking that the blue ceiling is an extension of the big, blue sky; and they move on instead of settling in.
There was a time when this belief was more than just a myth. In early days when the blue paint was made with milk paint formulas, an ingredient that was used actually did repel insects. The formula for milk paint lacked durability and has long been replaced with other paint formulas which don’t have any inherent qualities for repelling insects. But the belief lives on that you’ll have fewer insects on your porch with haint blue paint.

Lysa Hora was the Legend of darkness of the rising powers of men, both pagan and christian, both politician and military at Bare (Bald) Mountain in Kyiv, Ukraine. People tend to think one is good and the other evil, but when you look at the destruction of white, red, black, yellow and brown indigenous cultures, its all the same. I wrote a poem once, that said: “Christians have the blood of Pagans on their hands and Pagans have the blood of Shamans on theirs – and we all have the blood of woman on our hands and now she has the blood of Mother Earth on hers…
The Ukraine Witches were no different in their losses of their goddess culture and their persecution like everywhere else on earth. P. Efimenko is one of the most famous Ukrainian ethnographers who said: “Belief in witches is so common in Ukraine that in every single village, you can find one or two witches. This case is no exception even in large university cities like Kyiv and Kharkiv.” In Ukraine, they believe that “scientists” are responsible for taking their knowledge of the old witches and the proverb says: “Witch in the house, better be damn ready.”
Some witches can harm a person, but its something the witches prefer to “work out” or “settle” issues, but “scientists” not only do evil but they are unconscious of it because unlike spiritual people, or withes, shamans, magicians, they do not undergo the difficult spiritual tests and the shaman’s tests of nature. They are also not associated with icons, prayers, reading the “opposite” or “upside down” and reverse of all things presented. Most Slavic spiritual people including myself always include doing and the reverse doing (chaos), for some witches, the bind and the unbind, which covers the patterns of karmic, reincarnation or aspects of the wrath of nature within oppositions of life. Science and the Military, including their children, Corporations, cannot understand these principles when they mess with the forces of mountains, water, nature and women.
This protects us from our own karma by doing double the work, healing our own karma and working our spiritual life out, a walking forward and a walking in reserve (of the ancestral self). Otherwise karma will return at a later time in ones life or another future lives with much more impact and severity. Doing both clockwise (work) and counter-clockwise (self work) helps increase awareness of what is internally happening equally with the external happenings of our life, other people or situations – and its generally not focused on when one is learning the path but when they begin to actually walk the path.
Until now, Lysa Hora remains as it always used to be – completely devoid of any signs of civilization. The place doesn’t even have light posts, which are present anywhere in a city. The biggest action at the mount usually happens in the month of May. Groups of pagans, satanists, and the ones who deem themselves to be warlocks gather at Lysa Hora to celebrate the pagan holiday Grudie Rosnoe, the days when Volhvs – the Sorcerers would bring sacrifices to the god Rod. Naturally, the local police is not very fond of these gatherings, since a third of all suicides takes place precisely during these dates. Not so long ago, tolkienists and LARP enthusiasts took a liking to the place as well, in fact, all who have strong karmic past lives, will be attracted to this place.
According to the legend, the Sabbath on the mount were plentiful with witches and ghosts of deceased women partaking in shadow work and orgies with demonic men. As usual, the shadow of those in power in Ukraine, were and still are sitting on the throne, and if a witch, male or female did not do enough evil throughout the year, the top ranking shadows of people would abuse her or him.
The folklore divides Lysa Hora into three areas.
The first is called Rusalka (Mermaid) Ravine, since it is located by the Lake that was once sacred in Paganism where Mermaids used to live in peace.
The second is the Ravine of the Witches, where the Sabbaths took place after the Dionysus Cults of darkness intervened and brought their shadows from the Middle East, Russia and Greece.
The third and the biggest part of the Mountain is called the Dead Men Grove, where many ancient burial grounds were discovered.
Prior to the introduction of Christianity, Kievan Rus was a Pagan religion, and Lysa Hora was the place of worship for the followers but once alcohol of the Dionysus cults began the shadow, evil and darkness swallowed them up along with the other civilizations. Pagan priests and priestesses as a last effort, carved out dungeons in the mountain, where they stored books, sacred artifacts, and gold. After paganism was officially banned over a long period of time, the priests moved into those dungeons, in hopes to create a new gospel, which would combine the old Slavic and Christian beliefs together, to accommodate the confusion of people during this change.
Their gospel was passed down by word of mouth, and is reflected in many Slavic myths and fairy tales of the patriarchal male Pagans, which turned into a men’s religion just like Christianity was. The church regarded this gospel as a non-canonical Apocrypha work. Even now, stone plates with apocryphic inscriptions are still being discovered around the place. The second half of Paganism in Slavic culture was not connected to the Goddess, like it was in the first half of paganism. Over the centuries, the apocrypha writers left the dungeons and sealed the underground passages. After them, the Christian monks started visiting the mount to perform penance and prayer, and to build their own underground monastery, which connected Lysa Hora with Kiev Pechersk Lavra.
The Pagans were having a few chaos things happen, women were being burned as witches, men were try to control women with rituals of dark sexual magic and alcohol being introduced into ceremony and Christianity was trying to convert and convince men to join their God because their women would have to go along. Chaos is what was occurring and great change. Christianity had fell upon an already failing and darkened system. Lysa Hora has had enough tunnels dug into it more was to come, and during the times of Peter the Great who ruled from 1689-1725, it was decided to build a defensive military Fort for the city on top of the mount. The Lysogorskaya fortress was a very clever construction with the underground reservoirs to store water from the river Dnieper, more underground passages and dungeons. In the case of defeat, the fortress would be flooded with the help of the reservoirs. Besides that, the reservoirs were also the place to drown the disobeying peasants – about 3000 human remains were found there.
Lysa Hora Tunnels
In the first half of the 19th century, the area around Lysa Hora was populated by monks, who peacefully cultivated fruit, vegetables, and engaged in bee-keeping. In 1897 the fortress on top of the mount became a warehouse, where issues of power again by men would surface, the gun-cotton industry, was a highly flammable explosive, and it was stored there – the locals had no clue that they could blow up any minute. Everything exploded in 1918, destroying a big area of the Pechersk region. That’s when the military moved their ammunition and it was sealed once again.
In the beginning of the 20th century, the fortress served as another dis-functional and negative organization… a prison and the area around it as the execution grounds. More than 200 criminals were executed on the mount. In the Soviet times it was fashionable for the local officials to invite foreign government representatives to the mount, in order to woo them with the fact that any wish they thought of would come true. And of course, they would. A notable case happened when the China and Tibet conflict was at its peak, and Dalai Lama sent a number of Buddhist monks to the Mountain to wish for the end of war. On the third day of their praying, the leader of China, Deng Xiaoping, died. During the German occupation, the mount used to be the Tiger tanks base, and some researchers often came across the German military reports, describing paranormal phenomena.
All of this profanity from the late Pagan eras, then the Religion/Military eras, then the Government eras and lastly the Military/Government eras has totally destroyed all sacredness of this area. Today, Lysa Hora has a real underground city in its depths, which consists of caves from several historical periods – from the cells of the Slavonic to abandoned military bases. Besides the treasures and books deep in the mountain, all kinds of things are believed to be inside of it of the cave cultures, which are passages to other worlds, supernatural energies, skeletons of ancient adventurers and now totally controlled by the military (ufos) who crossed the veil in the 1930s and dominate this place.
The corrupt social groups like the Military and huge religions and eastern religions including paganism have used sacred places to further their own agendas, rulership, power and control for good or greed. All of the sacred places like Lyra have been darkened because of Pyramid societies and we are ending our final process of these eras. There are no doubts that all kinds of terrible things happened at Lysa Hora – during the excavations, archaeologists found a pit with burned books, skeletons of chickens, plaques with inscriptions and human remains. The adepts of paranormal military studies believe that there is a passage to the astral (dream) worlds through the mountain, and like all great mountains and volcanoes like Shasta, Fuji and Maui, once sacred are now demonic because of the US, Soviet and Saudi advanced shifting technologies to break the veils.
Legend says anything be it evil or good, can manifest there at any time at Lysa and bewildered people with the rising shadow occult phenomena over the past 300 years try to stay grounded. Moreover, since Lysa Hora used to be a place of blasphemy, godly and pagan godly corruption and desecration, this emanates the energy of negative ancestral energies for all who decides to take a stroll there after sunset.
Video: Night on Bald Mountain (Russian: Ночь на лысой горе, Noch’ na lysoy gore), also known as Night on the Bare Mountain is a series of compositions by Modest Mussorgsky (1839–1881). Inspired by Russian literary works and legend, Mussorgsky composed a “musical picture”, St. John’s Eve on Bald Mountain (Russian: Иванова ночь на лысой горе, Ivanova noch’ na lysoy gore) on the theme of a Witches’ Sabbath occurring on Kupala *Summer Solstice rites, which he completed on that very night, June 23, in 1867. Together with Nikolay Risky-Korsakov’s Sadko (1867), it is one of the first tone poems by a Russian composer
